Nicole King you remember from well right now She's on television on CW television as Mary Hamilton in the bat Woman serious, but you've also seen her in the Netflix series. You also the code Instinct and orange is the new black but her new movie. Is 10 minutes to midnight, now available on video on demand on all digital platforms, including iTunes, Amazon and Anywhere you can purchase your movies. Nicole. This movie hits very close to home for me, because it's about working in an all night radio star working the all night shift at a radio station and I have worked plenty of night shifts and my career. Oh, well, I You know, I'm not trying to say anything about radio station man that they're pretty scary. They're creepy. They can be Chris. Specially if you're the only one there and you're working on a long night shift. And you're by yourself in a soundproof booth for 68 hours. Your mind can start doing things to you. Yes. Week. Yeah, And I also think that like there's a different relationship to that late night show and your audience like maybe feels more Internet because those are the only people you feel like are awake in the world. Oh, indeed it is. I mean, that's when you get the lonely people calling. That's when you get the convenience store people listening. That's when you get the people working the night shift listening and they steal kindred spirit with you because you two are working the night shift. Yeah, Yeah, I really agree with that. And I and I think we really captured sort of that intimacy. In in our movie, and in that sort of the personality of Amy Marlo's show, Amy Marlowe, by the Way, plays an all night this jockey at an all night punk rock radio station. She gets bitten by a bat and her friend. That you play Sienna. Um, is also a fellow DJ, And you all are kind of locked into the radio station all night and then strange things start to happen. Yeah, chaos and soon because there's a storm sort of bring outside. So it forces on inside all night. And then sort of they're forced to be with each other. And I actually you know, play this new radio host that comes to replace her show because I've sort of sidled up our Sleazy boss Bob and I come in. I've just fresh out of college fresh out of university. I'm really ambitious and determined to work and radio. I think that's her Ciena's dream. And she comes into the radio station on Lee sort of to discover that the person that she's replacing and to show that she's taking Is a career of a person of a woman that exists that is real. And she has to sort of reckoned with those consequences. And what that means for this woman who had no idea that today would be her last day on the dog. Been there too. Yeah, you just You just blame on you Just finished your show, didn't you? Yeah, I did, Boss. You okay? Get your things. That was our last show. Happened? Oh, it's effort that that's gonna really like an athlete or something like it reminds me of Moneyball. That movie with Brad Pitt like Pack your bags. Okay? Today's the last day, you know? Yeah, yeah, No, it comes with the territory it unfortunately, a lot of that has settled down in the last year with the with the business being what it is, but I have and we're talking by the way to Nicole Kang. The name of the movie is 10 minutes to midnight. It's now available on video on demand and all digital platforms including iTunes, Amazons and anywhere you can purchase movies. I've also been an all nighter in the midst of it. Horrible storm. Hurricane Andrew, I remember had us so the hole up in a radio station trying to stay on the air, trying to give out information all night and little by little, the windows would start to shatter. And we'd have to board them up, so I don't know. I mean, I may have PTSD when I watched this movie, too, Cole New might their very, very core things that happened in our movies. I can't believe it. It's feels almost like that. We weigh took your story. Maybe you did 10 minutes to midnight. It's the name of the movie and Nicole King is with us. How did you prepare for this role? Did you go spend the night on the radio station? Uh, no. Okay, but I did, You know, Talk Tonto, the radio host that was there and and learn sort of how it works, basically, and when you're on live and how to do that certain things, so I didn't feel like Totally new. But you know the cool thing about Diana's characters that she's never done it before, And neither had I. So that was something that I didn't really have to reach deeply for. I could just appreciate it. And if any game this movie has just made me appreciate how hard your job is and how hard it is just like The online like you said, in the middle of something big happening and keep people informed and and appear, at least even if you're not feeling it to be in control and to take care of your listeners. I think that I definitely felt I definitely had a huge appreciation from combat. And as for anything else, I was just really excited that I was getting to star opposite Caroline William, too. The reason why we're in a radio station is that we were paying homage to her very famous role in Texas Chainsaw Massacre, where it also takes place in a radio station. This idea of the timelessness of this place in the similar setting on radio in general, that we all have relationships, too, and then to see this woman in a different part of her life. At the end of her career. You know they're both and what that means, And that sort of all things come to an end and And how she's not ready to leave. And she is so much more to give. And I think that that was really effective for me. I was just Honor that I got to Play sort of her foil or her replacement and watch her sort of play and and reveal some very vulnerable feelings of what that really does feel like. And you can hear more of my conversation with Nicole King a 10 minutes to midnight now available on video on demand on the later with Leigh Matthews podcasts, Katie okay dot com and the I Heart radio up absolutely free.

"What goes through sophie's mine when she's lake. I'm his number two. He you know he has me to this position. Whatever but also. I am expendable to him. I don't think she's acknowledged as expendable yet because of the way she still talks so kate. Kane is missing presumed dead at the beginning of season two for a plane crash. That has occurred where she was on the plane. And i don't think that we should explain everything that happened in season one. That led up to her getting on that plane. Because i think it's gonna have overturns and season two. That will actually be interesting for people who didn't necessarily watch season one. So when i saw the plane crash is it's a very interesting position in terms of ruby rose and what's been talked about because they have obviously nobody no death but at the same time you know playing crash very definitive and there's two moments in one moment in each of the episode where you know. It's kate speaking from the dead through either a letter or things she's written in the past and both of those times that is not actually ruby. Rose doing the voice over so we had the conversation where we think ruby throughout true deuces. Never i'm just putting that out there so that people like while you might while we're going to continue to see the the remnants of cain story and house. She had people's lives. I'll think ruby's coming back to in any of them. You know on a juxtaposition between deceiver. Leslie ruby rose. It's already obvious what's being asked of. Deceive via emotionally is already more complicated than what was accepted from. Ruby rose in the first season. And i think it's because of the thing that i mentioned before people are not comfortable watching a non or at least a white presenting character function from a place where it feels like their emotional base is rage. It is abundantly clear already in season. One episode one. They don't have that same reticence with respect to having it being a black bat woman now that bothers me a little because you know the reason they have less problem with it is because of the stereotype of amy like women. But i'm delighted by it because it opens the door to allow the ryan wilder character to have the full range of emotions in the hands of an actress. Who so far looks like they're capable of living up to what is going to be called for them and There's an open question of whether or not the reason why kate kane ended up being so weak is because of the backtracking may did on her introduction on the other c w shows or if it just turned out. Ruby didn't have bandwidth we will never know because I believe he hit the. Mtr networker saying we do not believing. Bribes cut that prominent capacity. What's interesting is while they are allowing Ryan's character to truly be angry and operate from a place of like revenge justified. She still has a lightness to her. That right rubies. Bat woman did not have enough because kate conflicted and traumatized on a personal familial level level differently than how they've written ryan walder with into the other characters. You've been kept Mary hamilton is still here. Her half sister played by nicole. King brilliantly well played by nicole. King Flighty socialite and medical student by day..

"Robert Thomas. I'm the director of the Lexington Market Inc. Today is an interesting transitional time we recognized that this facility is problematic going forward. There are things that we can do. Get it close to being twenty-first-century facility but they come at a pretty significant cost and that would not just be an up front cost and ongoing cost so the decision by the board was to simply get someone who could help us do a redeveloped. New Structure in Sea Wall is come along And this would have been the charge of anybody who got the WHO was awarded are as the char had the charge of helping us finding enough funding to get this done and then working with a master plan that we initially established and then enhancing that to take us to the next level and get this new building gun talk bound the main body of customers that come through here every day what they are looking for with the expect what they can afford and whether or not when they walk in the doors of the new place they're gonNA find anything that's for them fair question. It wasn't on my list of most worried worried things but it is a concern because we want to keep we know that there is a core group of Patriots who continue to use the market. They're looking for the value proposition. Which is a big fish sandwich or plateful food for something under ten dollars or less of you can make it. Those customers will continue to come to the market seeking what they can and I would prefer that they do how we do that. In the context of trying to make the numbers work is just from my standpoint a matter of being really pretty smart and having tiers of pricing so that people can get what they need. Somebody wants to twenty one dollars. Kobe beef sandwich fine. But for the most part the guy just wants to five ninety five for hamburger and fries should still be able to get that to some extent. That though drives us to the place and connects with the question of who gets to stay Because certain merchants are A. There's a group that's going to retire. They've actually said that to me. I'm just I just want to hang in there until I can retire. Which essentially will probably take place over two years but there are those who really should stay and we WANNA make sure that they can afford to stay That they can pay the rent. I don't want to create any kind of stigma or segmentation customer base But these are the things that were just trying to navigate one of the things that is important for us to make sure this institution called Lexington Market Survives. And that's going to mean change. Accept Credit Cards. Seems like a small thing. But it's a big thing for we had to make it a mandate for emergence have some kind of online presence to at least have email so that when management sends out something. We don't have to continue to do it the way I've done it for most these twenty years twenty plus years hand them a piece of paper sometimes translated. That says this is what's happening. These days is when I require of you Those can hang with it. Great those who are saying. This is really too much for me. I get it. This has been a livelihood for many people and I used to say that people here come in by a job. It's very different than if you're like a hard charging entrepreneur but this is what I this is what I do during the day. That's of course. My family says my kids to college. Pays the mortgage that sort of thing? And when you're dealing with people who are in that mindset changes disruptive and so we it behooves us as management team as a seawall team aboard to lead people through that in a way. That doesn't really up in their entire lives with no recourse. Then that's what That's what we really needed to. But we need. We need to grow and change. We need to make sure we have things that are that are useful in twenty-first-century environment because there's more coming and we're still buying the. I'm trying to get to the end of the twentieth century. And we're facing twenty-first-century retail pressure. So it's kind of where we are. But that's that's what we need to do. But I will tell you this history. People say oh. You're erasing the history. History really has never made any money. Because we're not a museum we're a business and so I get it and there are things that we can do to recall history. But I'm not one to hold onto history if it's in the way of the progress that we actually need to make for the very survival of the institution very convenient when you want to change something to say that line because legs into market is not a business in the traditional sense. It is a public market. My name is Nicole King and I'm a associate professor and chair the Department of American studies at you. Nbc In pretty much. The point we are at in Baltimore Right now is any private developer. Who build anything to the city is GonNa require in request public money and then they are beholden to the public. So I would really push back on that statement the word just to business because the city of Baltimore is not a business and if we allow our politicians and we allow our developers to use that narrative we the everyday people in the city are reneging on our own commitment to the public in the fact that we're all in it together. Tell me the story of the project that you have been doing with students at lead into market in two thousand fifteen. We develop the Baltimore. Traces communities in Transition Project Focused on the central question of how a city changes and doing historical research in creating media and in different products that address that but really focusing not just on how the city changes but how people feel about this changes was really the central thing because we often think about the history of cities and it's told from the perspective of the Developers. The business owners of the rich wealthy people that really have changed the city. But what we wanted to look at everyday people and head of the right to the city for all of its residents people who live and work in Baltimore and we were drawn to the Lexin market when we had a lot of classes in Lexington market and I think students really got a sense. We read about it. They get a sense of the history of Baltimore but when we actually went to the market and started having classes in the in the market space. I remember one student from DC. She was like oh I understand. I understand what this is all about. This is a space for black people and she was African American woman from DC and she had seen the ginger occasion the change in where she grew up and she saw you know firsthand. When you're in the market you understand that this is a bustling. Space is also a space. That is still predominantly African American. And that's one of the things. I think that working with the students being in the space you studied the history. You get a sense of it but being in the space you understand The issues of change in how they're based on these issues of power and who can be in what spaces and you know. Who are we redeveloping? The Lexington Market for really well. My name is Derwin Stewart. I'm sergeant. I was assaulted with the thirty first. Combat Engineer Unit Winchester Armory. I've been living in Maryland all my life.

What's what gives it a special place in your heart. Well I loved the bakery and I love Chitlins and Hogue Mos. That's what I'll be basically from down here Alexa mark.

"I have another but I think you have it to. Do you have any sunscreen death. So I've got to. I've got a Earth Ninety Barry Allen who discussed a couple of weeks ago his onscreen death. I think it's really really good. But does anyone ever really truly stay dead now on the hill above all the characters and black lightning except like lightning no mm-hmm so but I also have the barren for what we do in the shadows. Now Nice Very nice and I actually did go with Tom. Hanks from veep. I do as an excellent solent onscreen death even if it's just the the obituary but the point remains but I liked that choice of the baron that was very funny. Yeah an since it had to be an onscreen death. I can't use Logan Eccles oh well not ideal because yeah. It's is bad for battery ward. I went basic. But you know what I'm GonNa give this. Show some shit and other categories. So let's give it the props. It deserves Zurve. Arya stark wins of the year. Award for me though there are some other methods contenders. I think we could throw in there. Did you have anyone for Bettas. I'm Wolf Sam from better things For totally different reasons of redefining. A bad ass in terms of that kind of thing But also both of the Ah but the detectives on unbelievable Roy also just pure bad asses particularly toni. Collette character but Mary Weavers detective is also bad ass but in another different way so all three of them were my bad asses this year. Very nice And then for less two categories of the section I had characters. You want more of an actress. who were of the kind of overlap for me but characters I wanted more of and at least one of these? You'll be on say pages me as Mary. Hamilton Tint Nicole King from bat woman and Dina Hassan Make Kalomo On Romney the sister and then Barnes play Kim Keun on glow who I so enjoyed this season. Those are choices like those a lot. Thank you and then for actors we want more of a negative Godoi who plays Eric on sex education. I really liked him that so I look forward to seeing him. It's more things and Geraldine Viswanathan on miracle. Workers was a bit of a discovery for me this year Koga Choice. I wanted to like that show so much more in. I'm actually GONNA come back for more next year because it looks like they're like a blackadder thing where news and I'm like just the aspiration towards that is worth like me checking it out. I think but yeah that season did not all will live up to my hopes for it but I really liked her. She still felt like quite a discovery. So yeah that's that's GONNA round out my character picks so shall we over over to writing. Sir Yes so. Tell me your best writing or her comedy series so for comedies. Depends on what you're GONNA call comedy recalling shortly bag accommodate because if so that's going to get it for me but I felt like the place to you. You know if you're especially if you're throwing sketch comedy in there to give some more love for black lady sketch show because there was some really really great writing for that and also throw a little love for some of the rating over on. SNL This year a lot of it was not very good. It's very very hit and miss situation but there John Mullany episode earlier this year was I thought very good. And they're Eddie Murphy episode. Just this last week was really not really really good so I thought I would give a little sketch comedy. Love in the in the comedy category. Yeah well I have this writing for a sketch comedy as one of the category Arale. Yeah well I folded it all in there so yeah go for it. Luckily and sketch shows on there. Obviously I've got superstore for my comedy series And then I've got fleabag under drama. This is how I roll it. It's just the drama that happens to be funny So that's that's that's where I land on the writing stuff. Yeah that works for me. How about For most memorable lines listeners usually do a back and forth on this. What we're GONNA do is say? Tell you to go to twitter and search the Hashtag Best TV lines two thousand nineteen. Because there's a lot of really good ones and Dan. I was going to list. A bunch of them realize I was quoting other people's Hashtag so just go check out Hashtag Best TV leads. Were not in Altham love to squid pro quotas for the timing of it. The fact that that episode came the same week that all the quid pro quo stuff was going on in. The news was rather delightful. But there have been a number of of memorable moments dialogue heavy moments this season not having watched succession. I can't give it the rap even though I kinda want to but I haven't actually seen the show so the It probably would be in my list if I had seen that on. How best monologue right? So Jared Harris gives a great monologue at the end of term noble which is just basically a long trial And his speech outlining what went wrong is both accessible but then also really in just really well delivered so there's that And then this came from my partner. She demanded that I mentioned this. But more you're more roses SH- Thing with the crows he said needed to be included. Rose the coding so I included. That enemy is funny. It's very funny. That's not how CGI works you. Don't see the crows in the dailies camera where I don't care it's so funny. It does not a matter right now. That's the thing is like it's the rule of funny. It's funnier because you get to see them. But that's not how this works but my partner insisted that get included as a monologue so yeah okay. I'll mention it. I figured it'd be on yours was not that was my pick. Oh yeah this is the best model blog it is so good it is absolutely right. And that's really all about the performance but I mean I mean Tam. It's so good it's very hard to do like I mean you can do the to be or not to be speech each but if you can't deliver it then it's not a good monologue then it's not a good monologue. How `bout best writing for a single episode again? I went pretty basic. And just just Said said watchmen and said fleabag in for the the hood. Injustice flashback so D- And for you his experience being and then fleabag for the finale specifically but like that love speech was another contender for the monologue. Love is terrible and love is also amazing So that that's what did you go with. Yeah I wouldn't basic with this. This extraordinary being which is injustice episode for watchman. Because you know it's just so Machiavelli ruin also really immaculee acted and directed but it's really good. It's sort of like the episode of the year. Sort of thing got this was the best place to put that. Yeah how about best episode title for me. Nothing is like close to last year's pick which is of course legends of Tamiami. I'll which came in December of last year there nip stuck I thought was pretty good From legends this year and there or some other fun episode. Titles but I didn't feel anything quite reached the level of brilliance of knowing. How from twenty did not so? I didn't think others quick. Nothing was as good as this. But you know this year we're going to get to Cesari Nazari and so excited. How best crafting of a season? So I went with the anime given how to walk crafted season this year. And how they build up that relationship But then better. Things crafting in which I talked about last week with our top twenty The way that season was organized as chefs. Perfect type of deal. So what about you. Well all this is one that we didn't love as much as other people dead. But while the last third of watchmen doesn't work for me as well as it does for other people. I I really appreciate the flow and the way it set up. It's very well. Crafted season just ended on the chunk of the show that I happen to be least interested then but if I was more interested in that it would have been like impeccable so for me that was worth you know. A A notch. The crafting of that season that takes US solicitors to production so we have notable comedy and Drama Direction. Yes so I just have drama directions here Um mm so evil Russian doll and unbelievable for my drama directions just because they're all really well directed shows restall had almost positive caused the same director throughout evil uses the King Staples and I think unbelievable. It's the same director throughout as well But when you factor in how unbelievable handles of acting but also the rape sequences Russian doll balancing a number of different things and then just evil general direction. I I think just works really well for the kind of showed is Those those were very easy picks for me this year. What about you? Yeah I went with outs one for documentary now. Who which is the original cast recording coop? Okay and Harry Brad Beer for fleabag. He directed the whole season and for drama. Of course I was Stephen Williams. And For Watchmen for the sixth grader. Being again it's a basic choice but it's such a good episode. I had to give him a shout-out for next year. We have most member. Long take cheated did on this one. Okay because I know he both struggle to come up with anything and literally my first pick. This aero- wasn't there a sequence in in Arrow that knowles was really only good one shot like. Yeah Yeah. That's not good enough kate. So instead of going with eleven o'clock the the final donald musical number on crisis girlfriend and I don't actually know how much of that is a one take but I know the whole turntable thing. That was a one shot where they can having to like a food. There is a cut eventually but for a sizeable chunk of that episode of that Song. Sorry that sequence. It is one shot because they had to like frantically glee like take mannequins on and off the the turntable in time to set the cameras so that was one that I thought I would shout out there. What about Best Cinematography Evil because of all Tam Dutch angles? I love me a good Dutch angle. Kate so evil Scimitar. If he's really good on again mm for elevating the show in really good ways plus they they made the are just both terrible and scary at the same time which is a small feet on their budget. So Yeah Evil Wins for some targeted. What about you? I went with watchmen. It's very okay. It is very pretty. Yeah yeah of a for costuming with a again give it. Its due game of thrones in the Terry Infamy. I have my problem. Not catcher if me and it will be back later in less celebratory categories but it is certainly I think worthy of praise for its costuming. Yeah I had watchmen the tech and better things as well because I always try to get a contemporary prison day. Show in costuming So so better things as mine choice for that. What about set design for you this year? I have the umbrella academy okay. Good choice remember. The show is not very good. At least I the parts I watched..

"Hey Jude because there's no way they were going to pay safe to be able to use that footage then cost too much like it's joked about on thirty rock with the Billy Joel stuff. Yeah Yeah Yeah exactly. So so they were protecting the contestants in that moment but there are also protecting the show keeping it the kind of show they wanted it to be and and in a recently Henry who's like interning or working or something for the Times of London Times. He wrote up an article about his experience on the show and in that article he talks about because it seems like the baker have really positive relationship with the hosts talked about one of the moments when Michael was having his binge meltdown he talked about. How like and you couldn't you couldn't see but sandy was standing like right off right outside outside camera like right by him? The whole time sending positive vibes like Buckingham Up. You've got this you've got this and that was is to demonstrate how much moral support they were in the strength of the connection with them and all I read in that was. Oh Oh so. They made sure they didn't mess up the shot. Yeah so they're willing to. She was really standard through the through. The whole segments like didn't talk to anybody else like just the whole technical technical. She was right there with him for him right except that she wasn't willing to mess up the shot and that is such a far cry from what the show so was with Mellon sue and it's also very very possible that it was Mellon Sue. The show hadn't survived host change previously. So Sandy he might not have the authority to do that in the way. That Mellon Sue did. It's very possible when they brought Nolan Sandy on also none of this bullshit of messing of our shots because clearly I can replace you. Yeah that's very possible as well but it just shows such a shift in the dynamic and in the the the the priorities of the show and it's something that we've talked about previously the season the custodians of the show of the tone of the show have not been the hosts or the judges as the custodians of the tone of bake off. This season have been the contestants themselves who signed up for that show that was on the BBC although seasons and didn't sign up for this new thing so when the when like Nola. I'm sorry you annoyed that they're also making the same thing as you. They wouldn't rise to the bait wasn't the hosts making sure everything had that same same supportive comforting town. It was the contestants and after seeing this I would be very surprised if that didn't start to shift. Yeah I'd agree. I would fully fully agrees that that's going to shift or also then it either shifts or contestants keep pushing back against it it they cast and just keep going no. We're all gonna roll going to wear clothes that mimic the person who just got eliminated. I it should everyone wearing ties after Henrietta laminated and Henry with a spiderweb Wales pens to exactly and also just justice for Haina still. Yeah to this day yet but I just dream about the bakery and confection shot that she kim joy is going to open together. Yeah screen and television it. Just think about how. How Cute Lee horrifying all of that stuff would be? It would be so cute into spooky in. Yeah right yeah. Yeah that that's the song. Also take that that's going to happen in my head. Canon of the bridge but yes so all of its production wise. Just it's really really frustrating and it detracts from what are like I said a series of really solid challenges. I think well excellent job by David who I thought did an absolutely deserved the win. It's not only that steph messed up. He did a really good job. His showstopper was amazing. Yes has chefs oppor was. It's really good like it was definitely the best technical not even close. Yeah Yeah I didn't I didn't care for like some of the interviews stuff With him from the chocolate cake of she just made a chocolate cake and I just went. Yeah she may just made a chocolate cake but you know what it wasn't layered in massive amounts of alcohol was better than yours. Yeah it was significantly better than yours which was just a soaked sponge of Armenak acker whatever it was called Just like for a guy who doesn't drink. Why are you using so much alcohol on this cake? Yeah don't know how bad this is going to taste uh-huh. Aw so yeah it was just. It was a really frustrating final but it was also just a generally frustrating season and that was it just felt like a really clear capper to just a really up and down the season which was really frustrating. Yeah Yup I I mean right now. I'm probably covering the show with becomes back so that we'll watch it but Certainly I'm very. I'm very ready for a break. And actually actually writing about the holiday. Special was a really good pallet cleanser for because it's a one off you can't have the same bullshit and because the contestants are very savvy because they've been through the show but also all the pr stuff that comes after that So yeah it was a good pet cleanser number. I'm ready for a break. Definitely ready for backup break Speaking breaks now. We'll take a break come back with our weekend genre This week in genre. We're GONNA talk a bit about the Cw Shows Bat woman. Mine is along and sad tale. The flash kiss kiss breach and then Arrow present tense. Then we'll go over virtue. ABC for emergence biomarker. Fourteen the twist before we wrap things up with watchmen. She was killed by space junk. Oh so much so much to Thursday about that one so many Andras single double triple lots of Montana's anyways I hope is that woman mine is a long tail and this is is. The flashback episodes. This all about what happened to Beth and or Alice and as you pointed out which I had not quite connected to I was a little confused. This made it make more sense now. We're caught up to the crossover from last year. The backdoor pilot the else works. Yeah so which is weird to think about. It doesn't really make sense still well in my brain. No it doesn't but per the producers we are caught up to where else world's started biosphere now to which I go that doesn't doesn't make any sense but also how much more of a time skipper you guys going to implement. Now that we need to do the other crossover in four episodes custodes. Yeah don't think about it. So how did this backstory episode work for for you like I really didn't care I'm starting to sour. That women just a little bit. What did you think you? I mean. It's kind of frustrating. Sort of episode in that it provides a degree of an origin story for bath. That I don't necessarily know feels necessary Just the idea of her having gone mad to certain degree because of what happened to I think is enough but then layering tragedy upon tragedy basically on top of that and abuse on top of it as well. I think shifts the just the narrative in a way that I don't find compelling thing in borders on to the exploit of sort of thing but while still feeling very much within the confines of the watchman call of comic books per hero narrative But it's just it feels very too well trodden And so that was kind of frustrating but so is also some of the other stuff traffic light the twin connection type thing that they were really driving her she in particular is really driving home but a lot of it saved by the fact that I really early like The performance from the woman. Who's playing Alice yes she's really good? She certainly been a highlight of this of the cast of the season. So far are along with You Know Mary is the other big highlight and there are fun contrast to of like this the two sisters. I think that the shows during a pretty good job at that and because the resources strongest. It's working yeah. So ritual S- Karston who a partner. I slowly working our way through which call it Through birds of prey She's just growing leaps and balances and after spurts which is fair. She was like a late teenager prayed so But I think that there's just that is really keeping me afloat. I think a lot of ways and I think you're mentioned of Nicole King. Who Plays Mary again the juxtaposition but also just the solidity of those performances like her whole thing with him? Luke in this episode is just really good It is absurd right. Yeah as this episode. Yeah Okay Yeah is also just really really good. So I didn't necessarily eagerly need the flashback and I didn't find it particularly illuminating in felt more so about introducing mouse to us in an organic way And all but also makes me really nervous about how mouse is going to be manipulated. Um into whatever final nefarious plan. Alice has in mind But Yeah I just I just. I'm I just wasn't as responsive to on wanting to be but S- Karston and Roses Chemistry Sisters I think stalwarts who carries the stuff that is not the flashbacks so I really enjoyed those aspects but yeah I'm also ready for making quick getaways if almost more like Yes is introducing mouse. But it was more about for me the flags more about the dad and how he was affected. But yeah I really I don't. It was giving answers to questions I wasn't asking and didn't need and sounds like the notion like it tells so little of the story and yet pretends like it's telling the whole story and so I didn't need this stuff. It is the kind of thing that I think would work as much as I don't like the flashback structure in Arrow. I feel like that's the kind of thing where you show a little thing here. In a little thing there over the season that would have been more effective or just like little moments between mouse and Alice over the course of the season of them reflecting on their experiences growing up right. That would have done the same thing and not really slow down so everything to across. Oh Yeah I really felt the actors doing some heavy lifting thing to try to sell this stuff. Yeah it just didn't it didn't work for me as well and The more like Alice is the kind of character the more they tried to explain her. The less interesting she is. Yeah and this is generally the thing that happens with joker as characters like this which is how they're positioning me. Alice the more you explain the less interesting they are hint hint. Well let's go over to flash and we had kiss breach breach which which was very strange so I thought this was another not good episode. Despite the attempts the value attempts by the cast killing Gypsy offscreen get the actors very busy but it was completely unnecessary and felt like like almost like petty that they would do that. You know the not even Ch- I just kept waiting for it to be a fake out. Wasn't actually dead. Because that makes more sense given the significant the significance of that character has played in the show and for Cisco I feel like the earned it I thought that the not reveal at the end was stupid in the twin. y'All like all of that Was Not all that interesting with echo though the notion that notion of Echo Oh that of of taking people from two different earths to replace him in stealing identities was appropriately creepy and and good like villain thing to do An per potentially at setting something up for later. 'cause you we all know how the FLASH LOVES TO HAVE SECRET VILLAINS IN THEIR GROUP OF GOOD guys but strew with like this episode assode needed to really examine CISCO's decision to give up his or that he didn't want his abilities and it doesn't do that. They didn't earn it last season. They dinner. We're here I think having a if you're GONNA kill kill off Gypsy. Having that conversation with her dad would have been a perfect time for him to really do that and to explain to have this conversation with somebody who would never understand why you would give up his teaching abilities and they can actually they can. They could've sold that with creative enough writing because it really made them work in the actors sold it and they didn't do that here it also feels like they're really setting up CISCO TO GET to die instead of Barry and they also very possible that you know because I'm reading this stuff because I know that the actor went off the show but let's make sure we establish how loved he is by Camilla and these other things that lots of people can can be sad time But it just the. They're they're pushing so hard on a need to. You need to be the leader. You need to take over for me when I'm gone saying for Berry when I think everybody really. Maybe some kids watching. Don't realize like everybody watching CNN knows. They're not actually GONNA kill off Berry 'cause he's the lead of the CW highest rated show it's a TV. Show the arrows ending so they can do whatever they want but flashes an ending so we all know he's not actually going to die and so because they are playing into. It's so heavily over and over and over again it just the more. They pushed that thread. The the more I rebel against it and the more irritated I get with. It's like they're treating me like idiot so yeah I really. Oh I wanted to like this episode. I like that we gotTA CISCO EPISODE Like that. We get more exploration of his relationship with Camilla I I there's things I really like here. I enjoyed the Nash stuff. Even if if all of the conversation faith was very didactic and on the nose I even like the idea of getting a vacation just having a day okay off you know. It was nice but I would rather cut away and seen them like having some drapes back you know but yeah I just they are. They are handling this. Build up to the crossover very well on Flash. I mean I agree with you on a number of things here agree that this episode is Sapar I think that that does wrong..

"Treat cure aren't any disease so I said he wins out seven from CDs now so that's seasons turned around quickly should obviously they. They slowed dot us so mike show that Hamilton didn't drop behind him album. Something totally was not happy. He's a he's genuine. He's genuinely apologetic about stuff. So yeah pulse accepted thing being the team. players preserve them in fourth and fifth. One thing I should say is obviously battles had some fourteen he's basically he has been able to win the rice because he underachieved on his final key three run. That's was put in the position to benefit from things up but we should also say he was. I was very quick this weekend. Also the phase of the race after the pitstops now the forecast for midfield runners who were left they were who they dropped behind when I made the play stops these the lead driver says given at seek as Lee stroll and recalled so there's a phase where you had Vattel was leading mcclay with stop and back then Hamilton eventually jolts into the middle of that so when they were going going through that that's group of 'cause vet'll pulled five point three seconds on the clock incisive and traffic which I was impressed spy because of course this is the vet Lou he's made mistakes recently outlawed mistakes per state. They believe he's always been terrible. I would say much locales. Oh Costco Incisive in traffic pulled a gap really really could chop fell. That was the that was a period. I swear Vattel walls as a clear a step ahead of Likud in the way dealt with without movie pulled on gaselee down into turn seven. That was really really good. That's probably aggressive on the limit. noted by the stewards ended up off track very quickly went yet nothing doing here. That was really good just to want it might sound like that's a very easy thing to do for our ever taking Toros. Oh Blah Blah Woah. It wasn't easy it was it was very very forceful move and just to prove how difficult that move was to put off than you were caught. Cada who is regarded widely regarded as one of if not the best I take on the the grades when he tried to sneak down the inside of anti-new JV Nazi at the same corner a few weeks later he didn't manage it soclean legal mid corner might contact both of them and ah pro proof that is very easy when you go quicker car and you've got the line to get it wrong. Veteran didn't get it wrong actually once he got into that position vessel like as you say it was excellent. I do just find a bit twisted. He's run a show strict cutting probably tell us visiting the he got into that position through good full chain not just because of a clever as as you pointed out because of his slotting mediocre performance foolish qualifying and also as we will since since the discussed earlier this evening the fact that he failed to pass Hamilton on the opening lap yeah. It's it's yeah yeah. I don't know that begrudge catching catching breaking move towards about how much needed win just to try and and this horrible run and you kind of tight anyway you got them and he did execute well in the end. GonNa begrudging that we get so much answer the potential impacts on satellite sexual and we'll get through in this race with might talk about that and if future PODCASTS KOSPI INTERESTING SAFE atoll can use this as a as a kind of zero point after what's been pretty difficult sir pastor past year or so for him yet the facing traffic it was it was impressive so that kind of tells the story of the of the of the top six yeah possess faith. Alvin urban was sick Salvin perfectly respectable performance something it wasn't it wasn't brilliant but first visit. I think he was a little bit disappointed with qualifying all of finding but in the race he basically run around to the back of La Paki didn't drop off Ed Right. I'm not so anything in there in the first and so solid in the first genuine head to head with the with the staff of this probably always going to be one of the toughest weekends for him given how good for staff and his around Singapore and the fact he'd never been in the race was a bit it tricky because he admitted that it wasn't really until the last twenty laps he was actually able to push a bit Alpha himself fairly well. He was one of the people that was very frustrated with the procession session that the race turns most of the first half but we did it for the respect who job he was. He was quite good. Wasn't it working for you that midfield traffic because he still has teich few calls and he just kept on stages. He was exactly where we needed to be. As the second red bull really avoided a perfectly decent job he will need to make a I stepping pace of the next couple of pre because he was a bit too far off but about six tenths will says just a bit in the of roughly a second of hadn't before so gasoline levels the weekend and Albany's in pole position indicate that drive initiated just needs a little bit of an improvement over one but that will come because you DECI- Singapore's a very high track is one of the longest on the calendar is not other circuits among is on the calendar Arcand a brilliant statistical partner forex. I've I was sneaking suspicion that we might be able to find out so long always rites theater and fifty eight minutes. That's definitely longest rice of the the season where he for the season. We've seen by funny actually album. I ran into him off to the rice and so assets. Obviously this is always going to be difficult one first time hair all things considered qualifying was a bit disappointing. You say so a decent performance this weekend and he said Oh yes oh I think so. I think he's sort of agree. I think he's got the New Orleans. Decent is not stunning but it wasn't disastrous. If you see I think I think he kind of got that I got the impression he was sort of. He'll probably look back and it can be reasonably happy with that but not sur not entirely the in Saudi Saudi so yeah so solid points from again which is which is important era for Alvin Londonorce and seven hundred interesting rice in in the end he benefited from the collision between Hawkins and signs which you talk about a minute so he jumped from tenth on the grid. He's he's underachieving qualifying he probably should he probably had a little bit of a pace advantage over. I've assigns actually but we didn't miss. A downshifting miscounted his downshifts. It's on the on the only sickle. Napa ended up not going down enough. Gazza one made a mistake so he's frustrated with that but they go up in seventh place starting basically sat there. He's made a bit more complicated by the way the race panned out yet. Gaza Leah chasing thanks to safety costs at such good solid performance for London Orson mccown. London was one of his best weekend performances undress little asked him about endorse that view as well so a valid valuable points for for McLaren had appeared as Lee Nicole King Street to ninth. That was a reasonable cover. We should talk about the whole welcome back. Signs me because it's five. I lot very surprised to see a get choked offers basically a racing incident because there's no action taken off the noise. The phrase is wholly predominates a blind while he was hulk where he was wholly predominantly now. It's really a the Royal Burgh went for it but it was ended up just being a little bit too late and he probably say that. Science was a compromise because album is just ahead of him was nice. Oh No I. I'm always torn with this because I think they are delighted. Let them race thing but you've got to be careful bouts mistakes that kind of thing you don't WanNa punish constantly but I did wonder about that when somebody who was fortunate to get away with that became both three to ninth place signs did achieve. She has some damage thereafter say he was struggling came about three to three to twelve plice bow hunted costs. I've never in a great position to to recover of a book fix the ninth now if you have. US physically second even even trying to work it out but obviously SPA spas coast site. That's an obvious while I'm just trying to look. I still I'm struggling with is them. Back is probably know is backing slow down a rabbit hole hair. I'll I'll opry homes issues at one point four in so this is fascinating well anyway here we go. I'm GonNa talk about Sanjiv Nazi while you're resolving this is he finished tenth of course cop penalty which was for a great time everyday yes. It's actually like it's one of the shorter ones for a longer it spends with its own laptop more talking until the until his voice five five five kilometer circuit Australia's longer Bahrain China Alstine in Abu Dhabi apparently moms that can't be right. Well not very seconds high-speed the link circuit not Iraq time yeah. Y- coming back on Sunday juvenile's. You've quite enjoyed leading the race. He said he hoped that his family were watching. That's the point I'm sure they will. He is just a really unfortunate race him because he he was in a nice position. He was the highest place this driver on starting on mediums because Peres had a great panel say for Gearbox Changed Self inflates Zeke Rushton. FBI Three Aniko Standing Ricardo. I was excluded from qualifying for exceeding the the maximum level power from the the the Mike Generates without I thought you know a lot more than hundred twenty kilowatts as a brief spike after apparently a cup strike so yeah. It's not very happy with that. He's just disgraceful decision off to the lost about JV. Nazi then ended up being unfortunate with Iran long and then he lost track position drop down to about fifteen place came about three to ten th place so sold it could have been a few places higher Lennox. Yes this this penalty for. Basically nothing really resorting footage of We've all seen footage of it now. Describe so basically there's there's a crane on track. oppose the only exit around around sites and I exit turn. I think that deal with the at the stricken Williams the drinks psychologist Russell here yeah so I I think coming out of think tonight right hand up blind Come out that you can't see the accents until you're coming out of the corner basically using the one you can Z. Round and basically everyone was told that that was the crime recovering it so the double waved yellows on Satan under is under a believe must've been because there was a crane on the track and they will do so in a message from race control to the teams to instruct the drive is to to stay right on the exit of basically June Nazi. Come around He's not going to quit clear or anything like that. He was he was my tiny inappropriate speed but he's too close to the crime by Seleny does after me to the right to to to avoid it any penalty for driving too close to a crying the marshalls the right stretch around the stewards so felt that he was he was to close the movie would be considered safe. Basically is five destruction silly little thing to pick up on. We did have a few incidents in in the rights of we haven't yet sought obviously grow. John had his collision with George Russell that was that was another one that the students tidende psych any any action grows on on the outside Russell on the inside. I saw it was interesting because they often they're isis by them on the two of them every little discussion about set and Spicer Roman about any said while I was on the outside just gypsum tonight he said I think I thought maybe George had a noble and moved a bit further over and he should've done John Russell said well. I've had I've had over an hour and a half of our sites in the garbage to watch this and he was adamant that he felt the growth. John was about a meter in from the edge of the trial. He didn't need space for both of them to get round so he's one of allow you sir source of so situation..

"Always in the media and they would always namedrop while Cambridge's P._G.. Around and so that gave us like this instant credibility in the industry and so we would go order these trade shows like natural products Anaheim or project Nahshon New York can't seafood and all these companies would write that we would be looking to invest in R. Learn about there'd be all we know you guys you guys are the food stirs investors you know so it gave us like credibility that we're player. Joe Flow right inside deals yeah right and other V._C.'s were in that deal so we'd started networking with them and they had deals and then our next deal after that was a little little company in San Diego in a garage call up on a farm and it was started by Ari and Cassandra so their the original founders and the office was actually in Cassandra's garage and the four hundred thousand sales they were in five hundred stores ars eighty five of those stores were target stores and target was doing a test of the company where they put refrigerated so it's fresh baby foods refrigerator baby food and target put in these coolers in eighty five tests stores to see if it would do well and the plan was if does well it'll go national target so over a seven month period after meeting them we kind of learned everything. There's no buy baby food and with other companies. Just were convinced that H._p.. High pressure pasteurization cold pressed food was going to be the next innovation and baby food to shelf stable just played out like there's hundreds of skews in the Ger so in January we funded the deal <hes> our initial investment was one and a half million and so that was January twenty third two thousand seventeen than January twenty fourth son seventeen the next day after we funded and so it was supposed to be the four million dollar round and we were a a big part of that and all these other investors were going to come in but the day after we funded they lost their target test so the buyer changed everything so now this company you know lost twenty percent of its stores and no upside for the huge national. Channel Roll out high overhead and burn they just and then at that time they hired a national sales team so they're Bernie went up to one hundred and fifty thousand a month so now we're looking okay we just invest one and a half million losing sales and the burn rate like you fast forward Lorde the tape ten months the music stops so we really stepped it up and we helped them finish up capital raise that round so we oversubscribed a four million dollar round by thirteen point eight million of capital. We could not even take in yeah in the meantime we were working on bringing in Jennifer Garner. It was actually between Jennifer Garner Natalie Portman and we weren't really sure which one <hes> but we ended up going with Jon and so these were you targeted these two or do they have already a reputation of being being like more quote unquote healthy or how did how did you pick those well jen definitely because she has her own garden and she has three kids that she would go and pick her own blueberries and do everything at home so there was just natural synergy and she loved the brand who is it's not just US coaching. She invested in the brand and later on came on hands on and Natalie. Portman is so we're Russian Jews and a lot of our limited partners are Jews and they're like Oh. Let's get them that Portman. She's Jewish. She does everything I think for us and we're like oh we'll try garner was a much better fit right and she's also involved with Save the children which is children's charity. Just there was a lot of Fitch who's going Ganic fit yeah so we we brought our in Cassandra and the deal degen her agent Nicole King and Jen fell in love with the brand she goes. I understand this. I understand H._p.. I understand cold press like I'm all about this have been presented many opportunities in the last two years yeah. This is something I can get behind like this works with my personal brand so she's like excited about it so we're like okay awesome so it goes to her business team for diligence and fever two weeks into diligence her business team calls and says there's zero chance to Jenner's Dune. This deal or conversations are over goodbye. Forget about it like there's no way no way the Gen is doing this deal so we're like Mike okay well. What's going on like well? You have five people in a garage in San Diego right as soon as Jennifer Garner says anything about this brand. Your website is GonNa Crash. You won't be able to fulfill orders. You're just you're not ready for Gen so our response to that was the lots true. We're not ready for gen today but we have this one year. ramp-up plan and these are the things were going to do to be ready for Gen so you know we signed the deal now general be actually doing doing anything until a year from now and so in order to sell them on this plan that you know we kind of knew what we're talking about. There's so once upon a farm prior to US investing the seed investors in the company were all industry executives so guys John Tucker who built the Annie's organics from nine million to four hundred million in sales was a personal investor in the deal Bob Craig from food should taste good. That's all for a couple of hundred million <hes> Jerry Bernard who ran godiva chocolates and Avon and Mondays and other great people so Megan Bantu's critic on the deal on so we were able to recruit John Tucker who's in northern California to fly down on from Davis to Beverly Hills to meet with Jennifer Garner and her people to basically say look. I'm an investor in this company in I'll advise them. I'll help them hire the right people and strategy and so John is actually so he's known known as the grandfather of the natural products and she because Anne's was the first. It's the biggest the most widespread some super success. He took it public and then after the I._P._O.. General Mills bought it so just a lot of credibility in the industry street and so if you're going to bet right if there's a meeting between Jennifer Garner John Rocker John Being a very well respected executive and CEO Jennifer Garner being an actress who'd be late to that meeting. I guess JEN typical. That's a nicer suggestions on time. John ends up being. It's supposed to be a one hour long meeting. He ends up being thirty minutes late not his fault he had car troubles was like literally like the car from the airport like the tire blew out so he shows up to this meeting late. He's in his purple shirt with the gold and he's writing with the bunny. His hair is this shoveled and Jen Garner jumps <music> out of her chair and runs up to him and says I am such a huge fan of yours which my kids grew up. Eating Annie's like what you did for the food and beverage is just incredible so she's a fan of his starstruck and he's on my daughter's. You know love thirteen going on thirty fans of your movies and this one hour long meeting. That's not halfway done turns into a four hour meeting in John in this meetings explaining like what it would take right to take once upon a farm from this very small startup with four million on the balance sheet but right what needs to be done to get it to that to the organizational sophistication that could accommodate like a huge celebrity brand and actually scale and grow and I think that as he's explaining anyone needs to get done he starts realizing he could do this yeah and so by the end of the meeting he was like you know what if you're in I'm in like he sold himself on gay and they just look at each other and they're like all right and then just a few days later he turned in his resignation general males and you know because he stayed on with Annie's <hes> we started on this adventure with both of them coming on to once upon a farm yeah and then he then he starts and his deal got signed pretty quick. The Gen deal still took quite some time as we learned that <hes> entertainment attorneys very difficult to do especially being in the organic baby food company at the time and we're dealing with like entertainment lawyers just completely like clashing on everything right but so he's takes the headcount from five people to twenty one people just starts making moves moves like just executing very confidently and we're on the board and other board members were looking at this and we're just like those as amaze making such confident moves in like like he knows exactly what he's doing. Well at this point only short-track under still one point five in the coffers. I mean we raised raised four million. I want to see where you're GONNA run out of money but he was spending a lot of run out of it pretty quickly now but this is the power of John Right so he's spending a lot of money right but so we're all wondering well. What are we going to do another round? WHO's GONNA come in? Is it going to take time to raise. He gets on a call. He's oversubscribed by one hundred fifty million dollars in forty five minute phone. Call Power Yeah So. That's you know he's on. I'm this company that was that was at the time less than a million in sales right yeah. He raised a ten million dollar convertible note at with a twenty five Million Dollar Valuation Cap so twenty five times revenue in forty three minutes with one hundred and fifty do you million of interest on the ten million dollar position. Everybody General Mills Campbell's like other big. V._C.'s other all submitted okay. It was an individual investors it was it was big. Turn them all yeah so we're where's that. Where's that company today so today so this year it's attracted about twenty five million yeah so you went from less than one to ten twenty five in the next year? The goals do over forty yeah and that's that's in two years right. Yes Okay and then the valuation went from when we did the deal like around like less than ten to it's already turned down. An offer for two hundred and fifty million is there. Are you allowed to say is there. Is there a magic number that you're that that that you shoot for and this is a is an ex of something at some point you if you can't don't but I think I think that's not it's at this point. It's not really our call right knowing John I mean he has experienced growing brand over a billion dollars so I wouldn't be surprised if it's we're hoping that exit ramp billion or more but who knows wow wow that's just a but that was a hands on deal so so these are these not all of them are like that right there. I was just going to go there so <hes> we only have a couple minutes. This this goes by so fast actually. Have you have so many more projects..

"It's a it's an hour brand that has higher quality than some of the major European designers but we sell it for twenty nine ninety. Five nationwide is that right and all the stars want all right. Let's let's let's get into this so let's start with sharing with the audience exactly what is venture capital and private equity because there's investment banking. I think there might be some confusion between what each is sure sure sure so we're kind of a hybrid between venture capital and private equity in a sense where <hes> venture capital to believe procedures minority investments in early stage companies in private equity. He is more majority controlling interest. We're kind of in between where Robin dimes making a minority investment but we have some controls so taking board seats really being hands on with the brands bringing in these celebrities bringing new executives. I'm retailers of other strategic capabilities to those businesses to help them scale <hes> so I always joke we we do the <hes> the work of private equity but we get paid like the venture capitalists uh-huh by now so we so we basically invest our own money we raise capital from other investors to invest in these deals take a meaningful position the company and then use our capabilities to help create enterprise value and grow the business and then ultimately sell that business or take public and achieve a return okay so that's that's the event that the investor or yourself again is the endgame right the tied at the end of the Rainbow yes are they're typically dividends that are casual so let's pay throughout or is it all in the game it could be. I mean we've been in deals. It's not typical because usually in high growth company. You're taking everything from the bottom line putting it into growth but we've been in deals where we weren't weren't expecting dividends but the calm the deal took longer than expected and you know the companies successful cash flowing and that casual was distributed <hes> but typically no there's no dividends because it's all being put reinvested back into growth. What's the average life cycle of of your deals? Well it it changes so when we first kind of started out we were looking for you know five to seven year holds because we're getting very early. You don't companies that are below five million in revenue even Michael and once upon a farm when we invested in that business it was four hundred thousand annual revenue business today. It's over twenty five million dollar business two years later next year. It'll will be over forty but now I would say eighty percent of our investments are companies that are twenty two hundred million sales so those are call it three to five year olds versus five to seven getting earlier <unk> Bud twenty twenty five percent of our deals are still early stage where they're gonNA take longer but the kind of enterprise value that we create over that period of time could be significant some more upside yeah okay all right. We'll talk about how I think that fits in a portfolio in a minute but let's talk about how you guys got to where you are today. How start with how you got to this country and then what led you to your venture capital private equity career so we swam from I know we <hes> we came Delta First Class? She threw three from Moscow Russia. Okay and we landed in Orange County. My mother's side of the family <hes> lived lived here and they petitioned for the come at that time the borders were closed in Russia but they were able to petition for us so we just left everything behind in came here to Orange County what a culture shock right from Moscow to Serbia but we went to school here in Orange County and never left that all right so how did you how did this career. How does it brother and sister ended up working together and this career sure well so we both so we both had out of college both had jobs? <hes> Pollino wasn't capitol records managing bands Hausa devito which is healthcare company on Revenue Operations and Manet and then in late two thousand ten we heard a lot of our friends and business associates and people talking about the great deals. They were getting industrial estate so we are you could buy things for ten cents on the dollar for fifteen cents on the dollar. There was a lot aww foreclosures and bank properties. There was a thing called the Basil Three Act which made it so banks can't lend out more than ninety two percent of their deposits prior to that banks good lendup multiples of their deposits which the recession reception right and so these banks really needed to solve toxic assets so foreclosures on their books so they can maintain that eight percent liquidity ratio so there was a lot of inventory on the market. It was distressed and nobody was buying. Because everybody just lost their shirt in real estate and you know I I remember in two thousand ten we would be looking at deal and talking to people in our India in our industry and our circles about the deal and some very experienced real estate investors would tell us don't buy this property next year will be worth even less. The down is still going to correct even more you know and it was tough but so two thousand ten to fourteen <hes> we bought forty four distress GIO state assets so retail centers apartment buildings industrial centers on the West Coast and then in two thousand fifteen we only about one property and do thousand sixteen we all know about three and so in that two year period where our <hes> volume really decreased was because the types of deals so distressed real estate was not prices were coming up and then we would look at <hes> be underwriting adding the deal immediately see that the kind of return that is possible on the deal is significantly lower than it wasn't prior years and <hes> what we did is so we raised investment capital from other investors from loaded partners make these acquisitions and then we would take twenty percent of the Prophet that we generate for those investors and so we were expecting to generate a lot of prophet and that twenty percent would be a very attractive number but as we start looking at right as the market recovered we we started seeing that the prophet they were going to be able to generate is going to be much lower and then we get twenty percent of that smaller number in it. Just the equation started not pencilling as well because it's a it's a lot of work and it's really hands hands on management of all these assets you're leasing out a property or renovating it takes a lot of time effort and a lot of things go wrong and things need to be fixed so you know having private equity backgrounds doing 'em an in two Vida we all we looked at other businesses and other sectors and having gone to U._C._I.. Or Palmer our school of businesses there we looked at a lot of food and beverage businesses because we knew the Palmer is made all of his money selling hot pockets to nestle for two point six billion. We knew that if you did it right you could make a lot of money but we looked at all kinds of things so distrust companies whether it was too by the company turned around or <hes> you know retail businesses beauty businesses and then one day we got pitched a deal and the pitch was take a look at this company. It's competing in the five billion dollar. Bake mixed category in the U._S. hasn't had any innovation for fifty years. There's this company's foods tres. They offer inorganic non G._M._O.. Better for you bake mix and baked kits and their competitors are Duncan hines pillsbury Betty Crocker and new generation. MOMS MOMS don't want to feed you know these artificial ingredients poisons ingredients glysophate and all these things to their kids when they're cooking so at the time I just had a million dollars of sales only online and they were entering the retail market so a very small they had <hes> purchase orders from twenty four Gilson stores and thirty five whole foods on the east coast but they're projection wants to get the twenty five hundred stores by the end of two thousand seventeen and this was mid two thousand sixteen. That's that's pretty big curve pretty pretty the aggressive projection and the the sweetener on the pitch was by the way Buffy the Vampire slayer Sarah Michelle Gellar is one of the co-founders so if you look at the deal in Santa Monica you can meet Buffy so of course kids of the nineties wouldn't WanNa meet buffy. We we just need to go up there because we're going to get an amazing picture with Sarah Michelle Gellar for our Social Media Rumor Has Paul had posters of Buffy the vampire slayer. I still do well. We're fans so we really went to look at the deal but really to meet buffy and then when we got there I mean she she was like she. She didn't even have blonde hair at the time she messed up the deal. I almost like you're not Sarah. I didn't say that talk if I did it would have messed up the deal so we were blown away by the C._E._o.. Of the company whose delete live Oh she's still is <hes> and she ran inc P._R.. Does a huge <hes> p._R.. Agency in L. A. and she represented Sarah and Jessica Alba who's on investor and and Reese Witherspoon who promotes the brand as well <hes> Greg Fleischmann who's now one of our operating partners was the president and he's you know employee number three Akashi you know they sold that to Kellogg than the the bare naked Granola acquisition he did epic epic provision which in two and a half years soul to General Mills one hundred sixty million sujit juicy help take that from one million in two thousand thirteen to forty million two thousand fifteen season industry guy like yeah so we're impressed by the team and we thought twenty five hundred stores next year here from basically fifty s aggressive but even if you did half like it wouldn't be so bad and we thought we knew what we're doing and food and beverage we thought we knew food and beverage but we didn't really know food and beverage like we know food and beverage now and so we lead their series we set the violation as the capital we did the deal and then other investors came in and instead of twenty five hundred stores in two thousand seventeen. They got nine thousand stores seriously they went national. They were in Forbes Four Times cover entrepreneur on your magazine. Martha Stewart Home Living on T._V.. Good Day Good Day Good Morning America just always in the media and they would always namedrop while Cambridge's P._G.. Let are around and so that gave us like this instant credibility in the industry and so we would go to these trade shows like natural products Anaheim or project Nahshon New York and seafood and all these companies right that we would be looking to invest in our learn about there'd be all we know you guys you guys are the food stores investors you know so it gave us like credibility that we're player. Joe Flow right inside deals yeah right and other V._C.'s were in that deal so we'd started networking with them and they had deals and then our next deal after that was a little little company in San Diego in a garage call once upon a farm and it was started by Ari and Cassandra so they're the original founders and the office was actually in Cassandra's garage and the four hundred thousand sales they were in five hundred stores wars eighty five of those stores were target stores and target was doing tested the company where they put refrigerated so it's fresh baby foods refrigerator baby food and target put in these coolers in eighty five tests stores to see if would do well and the plan was if it does well it'll go national target so over seven month period after meeting them we kinda learn everything. There's no by baby food and with other big companies. Just we're convinced that H._p.. High pressure bastardisation cold pressed food was going to be the next innovation and baby to shelf stable is just played out like there's hundreds of skews in the Ger so in January we funded the deal <hes> our initial investments like one and a half million and so that was January twenty third two thousand seventeen then January twenty fourth son seventeen the next day after we funded and if so it was supposed to be the four million dollar around and we were A. A big part of that and all these other investors were going to come in but the day after we funded they lost their target test so the buyer changed everything so now this company lost twenty percent of its stores and no upside for the huge National National Rollout high overhead burn they just and then at that time they hired a national sales team so they're Bernie went up to one hundred and fifty thousand a month so now we're looking okay we just invest one and a half million. They're losing sales and the burn rate like you fast Ford the tape ten months. The music stops so we really stepped it up and we help them finish up capital raise that round so we over subscribed to four million dollar around thirteen point eight million of capital could not even take in in the meantime we were working on bringing Jennifer Garner. There's actually between Jennifer Garner Natalie Portman and we weren't really sure which one <hes> but we ended up going with Jan and so these were you targeted these two or do they have already reputation of being like more quote unquote healthy or how did how did you pick those well jen definitely because she has her own garden and she has three kids that she would go and pick her own blueberries and do everything at home so there was just natural synergy and she loved the brand who it's not just US coaching are she invested in the brand and later on came on hands on and Natalie Portman is so we're Russian Jews and a lot of our limited partners are Jews and they're like Oh. Let's get them that they report. She's Jewish. She does everything anything for us and we're like we'll try. Jen Garner was a much better fit right and she's also involved with Save the children which is children's charity. Just there was a lot of Fitch who's going to fit yeah so we are in Cassandra and the deal degen her agent Nicole King and Jen fell in love with the brand she goes. I understand this. I understand H._p.. I understand cold press like I'm all about this. I've been presented. You know many opportunities last two years..
