Obama says social media companies 'are making editorial choices, whether they've buried them in algorithms or not'
"Truth decay. I see that happening on a number of levels right now if you turn on different news organizations. They're not delivering news. They're delivering disinformation. Depending on who you're watching and that's really growing spreading and then i just land flatly on facebook where i feel a growing number of americans get their information there and that's truth and it seems to me to be very dangerous. It is very dangerous and you know he has President obama has very specific words for social media companies. He says they're not to blame entirely for this truth. Decay as he calls it. They're not to blame for every ailment in our political system but he says that the time has passed do for them to start acknowledging that they're not as they often argue. They're not just the phone company right That they're not just carrying messages back and forth between people that that embedded in their algorithms story choices. That's the way he put it to me. I thought it was a very good way to put it That that that the that facebook and other companies are sorting information and pushing certain kinds of information and repressing other kinds of information. And so you think that they play a civic role that they're not playing now and but but that's an accelerate as he says are something that exacerbates A deeper problem. Which is cultural norms.

Barack Obama's new memoir 'A Promised Land' discusses rise of Donald Trump and marriage with Michelle
"A- promised land. That's the title of former president obama's new memoir remember. This is just part one. Because he couldn't get it all written in time so he split up into two parts but we are starting to see what he is writing about in this book and cnn obtained a copy of the book and my colleagues jeff zeleny and america and others poured through it and one of the big headlines that is emerging from the former president's memoir is how directly he deals with the issue of race and the rise to the trump era in other words. Barack obama who doesn't really talk about his race and its impact on american society. All that much really addresses in this memoir. He's very being. As the first black president sitting in that oval office he believes allowed millions of americans to be spooked by that and that was something. Donald trump understood that there would be millions. americans spooked. That black man was present united states and exploited it and played it to his political advantage. That is what obama thinks. The whole birther controversy was about he thinks that palin sarah palin being put on john mccain's ticket in two thousand eight was the beginning of this of taking what were sort of fringe off the read corners of the republican firmament in the country and bringing it front and center and that his being the first black president allowed that to happen because there were people like donald trump wanting to exploit those very racial and racist fears. I many in this country. It's just a fascinating. Read to see obama talking in these terms but this comes out at a time where we're seeing. How race played into this year's election. And the here obama talk about this in a way that quite frankly he hasn't talked about before is pretty fascinating.
The Other Big Apple
"Well i was kind of. I guess in inadvertent midwife that we at the at the fellowship that we did back in what year was two thousand thirteen although we agree time has ceased to have any meaning. And that is michael pollen of michael palin fame. He is indeed the advert midwife of guest or pod. Because nikki and i were together at uc berkeley that year in two thousand thirteen out of fellowship. Run by michael. That's how we met. And you discovered your shared love of science slash food. yeah it's one of the happier offspring of that fellowship. Obviously if you're into the stories behind food and farming as we both are michael's writing is pretty much at the top of your list. We've wanted to have him on the show for ever and this episode was the perfect excuse to revisit one of our favourite of his books. The botany of desire in the botany of desire michael traces the stories of four plants and their intimate relationships with humans. One of those plans is the apple tree. And i don't know about you. But when i think of apple trees the first person is of is johnny appleseed. This is a very american thing to think of. I'd never heard of until. I moved here so for our non american listeners. This is what americans are thinking of when they think of johnny appleseed well they would probably have the walt disney image johnny appleseed which is of this you know barefoot guy on the frontier bringing goodwill sweetness to people when people hear johnny appleseed. It's it's very wholesome. It's very Uncontroversial he's a disney character right very soft. But actually the the real. Johnny appleseed and i use that word advisedly because there's so much we don't know about him is much more interesting in his book. Michael traces janis path planting apples across the us. And we're going to do the same here but i. There weren't actually apple's growing here. Before europeans arrived there crab apples that were here in the sixteen hundreds but native people did not have sweet apples. This is amy traverse. Oh she's the author of the apple lovers cookbook and senior editor at yankee magazine. So apple's are we think of apples as this american fruit and american as apple pie and we identify closely with apples americans but it turns out. They're not they're from kazakhstan around town called alma mata which means father of the apple. I'ma autism now called amati and it's the largest city in kazakhstan. I've never been there but if you go. Apparently you will see whole forests of apple's fifty foot tall apple trees. Apple's coming up in the cracks of the sidewalks. It's like a weed there and these apple's most of them look nothing like our image of the apple. I mean there's some the size of there's there's big brown ones there's just this incredible range and they're apple trees that are kind of prostrate and grow along the ground and ones that grow vertically ones that have canopies. I mean it's just incredible diversity but a lot of apples weren't particularly sweet or delicious. At least not to humans. They were dry and hard so did survive the drop to the ground and often the flesh was kind of bitter acidic and tannock because these chemicals were preservatives that would also help to fight up worms and insects and that was all useful because the apples needed to be eaten by bears to spread their seeds. And if you would like to hear what the delight of a group of bear cubs that has just come across the pile of fallen apples. Sounds like which of course you would you need to be on our special supporters mailing list gastropod dot com slash support bears. Yes there are a lot of bears and kazahstan. They love apples but like humans they also prefer sweeter ones and larger ones and even retro ones. These big red sweet apples sometimes appeared in all the different ones that grew wild and bears chose those and help spread their seeds and so the bears hopes for just the kind of apple's that we wanted the large sweet red ones and so then people who tasted these bear approved. Apple's turned into apple fans to and not just the locals because that area of kazakhstan was right in the middle of the silk road. An incredibly important trading route that stretched all the way from china to europe magin stumbling across. I mean you're living in a world with no sugar ray or at least it's a very rare. That kind of sweetness is extremely rare and very fleeting and you stumble across a forest where you find these fruits that are sweet and that actually keep well. I mean not a lot of fruits that you might find in that same forest like apricots will rot very quickly whereas an apple would last for weeks or maybe months and so people would pocket them and bring them to the next trading ports or the next trading town and they really spread that way and they flourished wherever they spread. because apple's have a couple of botanical superpowers. Apples are unique in that they easily enter. Breed with the native crab will species of whatever region. They end up in. And so those crab apples within s- place in the genes that allowed to survive in their climate. So that's super useful. Those local crab apples had jeans. That would be perfectly suited to the local environment.

A tale of two direct listings
"Hello, and welcome to equity shot are quick hit on breaking news I'm Natasha Mascarenas and today joining me to talk about a tale of not one. But two direct listings on the same Damn Day is Danny Creighton. How are you Danny doing? All right this is exciting. You know we went from a world of no direct listings to an occasional direct listening to multiple direct listings in the same day. So it's an exciting exciting morning. We can finally stop breaking up spotify in slack whenever we say the L word and reinvention Asana, and pollen tear, which are the two news heads we got today it's zoo of curiosities. But lots of great stuff to talk about where where do you WanNa start you WANNA. Start with Asana or palate here. What's more interesting to you I think I have to start with pollen tear and my big question is you've been tracking it through every. You know crazy filing, your high level thought was this a successful debut on the Stock Market for? Today I think it's a definitely a success. You know the stock from January two, thousand, nineteen onwards trading at around five to five, fifty, a share, and then in the last two or three months that price jumped to about nine dollars and sixteen cents as of September first, and so you know when when the reference price came out yesterday from the New York Stock. Exchange which was quoted at seven dollars and twenty five cents. A lot of people were like, wow, that's like a significant drop from nine sixteen like what happened particularly also last week we had the Wall Street Journal reporting they were looking for a ten dollar referenced price. You know none of those numbers were really good but look it's trading. Now it's live as we're. Doing the show, it's ten dollars and sixty one cents a share I'm. So it's better than all the numbers we heard before and it's up fifty percent on day one. So so part of me feels like this reference value was actually chosen precisely to give it a pop on day one you know if they were targeting ten bucks on Day One, this is sort of what they got and so a little bit of a lower reference price might have given them a little bit more of A. Psychological boost on on day one. So I, I think overall to success. Do you. Can you talk me a little bit about how we're trying to value the company right now I feel like I'm seeing a bunch of different numbers out there. Do we have an understanding of its fully diluted market value? We do there's still a little bit abate mostly because Peletier gives multiple numbers for the number of care. So it gives us one point six, billion shares outstanding two point one fully diluted two point one billion fully diluted than two point five billion fully fully fully diluted and so. I would say that its current share price, we would call it around twenty, four, billion in evaluation, which is an uptick from its its last rounds. Again at you know for a seventeen year old company to have the sort of strong debut on Wall Street I think it's pretty good. All things considered. Okay. Cool. I'll put a pin in Pailin tear, but I do want to talk about their lock-up period later, run me through Asana numbers I. saw it opened at a five point two billion value. Yes it's on a similar story. So yesterday, The New York Stock Exchange released a reference value of twenty one bucks per share. It zoomed straight out onto the public market. So it debuted, it's currently sitting at twenty eight dollars a share up thirty three percent on day one so far it's up to about I. Think it peaked at five point, two billion, and as of now is more like three point five, three point seven, five, billion market CAP. But again, that's actually significantly higher than his last valuation, which was an inlet late twenty, eighteen around one and A. Half billion dollars so either oke across the board I think both of these issues you know there's always a lot of risk drake listings. As you pointed out Natasha there haven't been that many is this sort of a novel mechanism. They're still a little bit unclear and exactly how they work, and so it's great to see again similar to slack spotify you know these are two enterprise. Companies to again totally different from the more consumer is random companies particularly spotify, which has tens of millions of consumers who might be retail investors buying into the stock. Most people haven't used the Sauna and certainly must people haven't used Pailin tear and so to see the kind of strength on the markets and the first day is is enticing for other companies considering the direct listing model. Right There I feel like pollen tears total customer base was what one? Hundred Fifty, company, hundred, twenty-five customers. That's a lot of customers Doing Gospel distanced. Something it's probably my favorite statistic about the company and I think I saw Dan Prime tweeting the other day that you know it's no longer going to be a secret of company. So we can stop calling it as such. This is the end of that right that confrontation about pollen tear for. So long we've been having well I, I will say. This about an hour ago. So may not be true today. A ASANA has an investor relations page like a standard like every company who publicly trades Peletier does not like it actually does not have as as of an hour ago that I looked up I could not find an investor relations page for here, which which tells you everything you need to know about the company I, feel like that is like in a beautiful one sentence or describes his relationship with investors, but but I think you're absolutely right you. Know despite the fact that only one, hundred, twenty, five customers despite the fact that took seventeen years three hundred grew it's growing from seven hundred, forty, three, million in revenue last year in fiscal year twenty, nineteen, it gave a revenue projection for twenty twenty about one point, five, billion to it's a growth company. It's SAS more and more SAS today than it was in the past where it was more services driven. So again, it's a positive story despite all the kerfuffle around its governance the last couple weeks do you Do you feel like the direct listing method might now take on more popularity. I. Mean. Maybe in some way, but can we even is? Is it enough of a success? You'd think that other companies might follow suit now that it's not just spotify that that did this. I think the more the merrier right I think Palentinian particular raised capital round back in. July right which was sort of what I was told from some insiders essentially the IPO that was the IPO and then direct listings just the actual market exchange. So I think we're GONNA see more companies taking this approach of bifurcating the capital, raise the float that you would normally do a IPO and just the actual just GonNa Start. Trading today and you know I think that that allows you more time to create the right narrative the right story of and also separates what is a a pretty intense kind of crisis driven process the road show getting the company ready the SEC filings separating out at out you don't put all your eggs in one basket. You can do it in stages and I think more and more companies undertake that approach going forward. My question to is and I'm sure our listeners are curious is with all direct listings. There's no shares offered by the company when the when it debuts and so when we see these prices I, guess how much of them are they vanity metrics much of their HABITA- goals, how important are they for us to care about and think about? I wanted to be precise. So there are no new shares offered by the company. So there's no dilutive in an IPO generally have fifteen, maybe twenty percent new shares offered to the public. There are no new shares but many of the insiders have to pay taxes capital gains they actually do have to sell shares. So you know so far this morning already thirty five, million shares of have already been traded and We have on Pailin tear thirty, two, hundred, and thirty million. Shares sold today, right? So already, there's a market, there's clearly tens of millions of shares being sold. So these prices are real or Israel as any other IPO in which people are you know figuring out what's going to happen? You know the next checkpoint for both of these companies is gonNA come in a couple of weeks when they report their next quarterly earnings and I think by then you'll start to see the analysts get comfortable the companies understand the next steps and what's happening after. And you're speaking with Dustin Moskovitz later today the founder of Asana. So any questions on that? You can kind of tease out right now. Well, I was told. The pure folks. About our stock imagery because apparently no longer has sideburns to. Join, the Line of people that complain but it's like you know there's the old line about taking a haircut. Up Thirty, five percents of they actually gained hair on the market today speak. Clearly. sideburns maybe somewhere else. But? No I. THINK WE'RE GONNA be really interested because some unique company in which its founders, Dustin Moskovitz who Justin Rosenstein, who both met each other at facebook actually majority of the company outright right. We just never see or very rarely see tech companies where the founding to CEO's and and COO own like outright majority like not just a majority of the voting because of class, a class B shares but they just outright own about thirty two percent of the company I believe doesn't owns thirty six. Percent of the company outright and just knowns around sixteen point, one percent and so to me like I'm just curious because it's just a different path for a company it was a slower growth company capital much more efficiently grew much more methodically and the founders sort of maintained ownership over time in a way that most other founders do not think the other. The other thing to put out here is Asana has no lockup though the similar to spotify Ed to black as listing all the shares are available for trade to anyone. Who any insider anyone who owns a share of on this morning can put it on the market and sell it Here is the complete opposite pallares pioneering this new kind of fusion of the IPO and the direct listing one would argue maybe the worst of both of those processes but actually a direct listing with a lockup and so only roughly twenty eight to twenty nine percent of pollen. Tear shares are even available for sale at all with the rest in lockup and market standoff agreements that will expire over. The next calendar year. So you know there's a lot more to wait on right. There's not as much liquidity with Pallares could actually harm the stock price. They might be a little bit inflated right now because there's limited number of shares available for trade, we'll have to watch and see but again, it'll be interesting to see if other companies start to do a directing the lockup because clearly Palin tear has not suffered tremendously using this model. So again, another tool in the tool chest and uber do something similar with lock-up period. mean. They did like all IPO's. Underwriter from a bank, they have lockups in place mostly to make sure that there's not a mass rush to the exit. They don't want hundreds of millions of shares at any price willing to be sold. They WANNA, kinda manager coming out because they're putting oftentimes their own money up through the green shoe at stake, and so again, that's what made direct listings unique is that there wasn't this lockup employees are free to do on day one through whatever they don't have to wait six months as is customary. So again, we'll see kind of where the the system lies in the future. As you know, the New York Stock Exchange also got approval to do a direct. Listening with a capital fundraise so we've gone from this world of like there's an IPO and that's the only way to go public to. You can do a direct listing, a direct listening with a lockup, a direct listening without lockup address listening lock-up in a capital fundraise like you can do anything you want. You know it's it's the it's the Netflix of going public. So to speak I, see the headline now airbnb goes public through a through a pollen tear style direct listing. It's just going to happen and it's going to be horrible but we will be back here to talk about it as always every shareholder gets a free party house for one night so. That'll be the new innovation going on there, but but that's a sonnet that is Pelham Tear Ford they an and we'll have more to come in the next week.

Revenge, Best Served Loud
"With, arguably one of the greatest opening riffs and Classic Rock Barracuda was written by Anna Nancy Wilson together with Guitarist Roger Fisher and Drummer Michael Derosier. It was written at a time when there was friction between the band and their label to put things mildly. The song appears on the album little queen their first album with CBS. Portrait. Records. They'd left their old label mushroom records after a contract dispute and mushroom was none too happy. Because according to mushroom heart owed them a second album. They not only sued the band for breach of contract and try to block the release of the CBS album but released magazine an album made up of songs that Hart had recorded but didn't think we're good enough to release as well as some live recordings needed to get it up to album length. The dispute dragged on and eventually the court decided that heart was free to sign with a new label but mushroom was indeed a second album. So. Heart went back to the studio to rerecord remix edit and re sequence the magazine recordings in a marathon session over four days. A court ordered guard actually stood nearby to make sure the master tapes weren't being erased. Heart eventually came out on top. As not only did the album little queen outsell magazine by a wide margin. The debacle gave the band the distinction of having all three of their albums on the charts at the same time. The court case wasn't the only reason. The Wilson Sisters in company were mad at mushroom records. After the first album became a million seller mushroom took out a full page ad in rolling stone touting the band's success using the headline million to one shot sells a million. No problem so far. The AD looks like the front page of a tabloid newspaper and included a photo from the Dream Boat Anne album cover shoot. The caption read. Hearts Wilson Sisters confess it was only our first time. Implying the sisters had an incestuous lesbian affair. Shortly. After this ad appeared a Detroit radio promoter asked an Wilson where her was. She assumed he meant her then boyfriend band manager Michael Fisher. But when the reporter clarified, he was referring to her sister Nancy and was understandably outraged and retreated to her hotel room to write. When she related the incident to Nancy to was outraged and join an in the writing session, contributing a melody and bridge. Nancy puts suitably angry music to the word to complete the song comparing the sleazy side of the Music Biz to a dangerous ill like fish. The song became an enduring classic and Barracuda remains one of the band's signature songs. Vera Khuda was test to another incident of severe irritation for the Wilson Sisters at. Against in two thousand eight. During that year's presidential campaign the song was used as the unofficial theme song for Republican Vice President Nominee Sarah Palin. The ALASKAN governor had apparently earned the nickname, Sarah? Barracuda as a high school basketball player for her competitive nature. The day after the song was played at the National Convention Anna. Nancy Wilson issued a statement reading. The. Republican campaign did not ask for permission to use the song nor would they have been granted that permission? We have asked the Republican campaign publicly not to use our music. We hope our wishes will be honored. Their wishes were not honored. As the Republican campaign pointed out, they had obtained the proper performance rights to the song from the record label and were under no obligation to get any further permission to use it. The Bar for performance rights being somewhat lower than the bar for commercial or video rights. With no legal recourse. The Wilson Sisters retaliated in the media telling entertainment weekly. Sarah Palin views and values in no way represent us as American women. We. Ask that our Song Barracuda no longer be used to promote her image. The Song Barracuda was written in the late seventy s as a scathing rant against the soloist corporate nature of the music business particularly for women. While, heart did not and would not authorize the use of their song the RNC. There's irony Republican strategists choice to make use of it. They're. The. Songs Co writer Roger Fisher was also anti Palin but he saw things differently telling Reuters. He was thrilled that the song was being used as it was a win win situation. He explained that while heart gets publicity and royalties the Republicans benefit from the ingenious placement of a kick ass. Song. He added that he would use some of the proceeds in a donation to the Obama campaign and thus the Republicans are now supporting Obama. See Kids. There's always a silver lining if we look for it.
Joe Biden leads President Trump in national poll
"His past week the Democratic National Convention took place this coming week Republican convention will be happening as well and with both of these happening, we are firmly into the general election. But what do the polls show about the state of the Presidential Race Joe Biden continues to maintain lead but that is narrowing and while Biden, has his supporters. Voters are really more united opposition against President trump for more on what all the polls are saying right now, we'll speak to Stephen Shepherd politics editor. At politico. We got a boatload of polling over the past few days leading into the two conventions here and but it shows is some slight tightening from earlier in the summer when Joe Biden was up routinely around ten or twelve points in the polls over president trump that now averages out just seven or eight points in a number of those polls tightening slightly one poll tightened a lot more. But that looks like more of an out wire a couple of polls actually showed Biden's lead. Widening those look a little bit like out lighters overall, it shows a slightly tighter raising. You're absolutely right about this being the kickoff really for the general election, we have the two party conventions. By the following week you first absentee ballots and a swing state North Carolina, go out to voters in the mail the week after the Republican convention. So we're talking about really the election is as we are going to know it in this sort of pinned era really being on our once we. Get through these conventions and it's GonNa be interesting to see because usually when we have a convention that party gets a bump and with the Democrats Convention being virtual and who knows how exactly how the Republican convention is GonNa play out are those bumps going to be comparable? Another thing that we're seeing is that or Joe Biden it's not necessarily hey, we support Joe. Biden. We Love Joe Biden. There's some of that but most of his vote is coming in as opposition to president trump. This is something that I think. We've looked at over the course of the past few months where you see a relative enthusiasm gap when you ask people how enthusiastic they are to don't folded ended it president trump's supporters and. Whether it's in parentheses or on social media are very active here his rallies or about him horror. So Biden, it is more about for his voters seems to be more about kicking out the incumbent president and NBC News Wall Street Journal poll out on Sunday Fifty, eight percent Biden supporters said there was more about opposing trump just thirty six percents that it was about voting for Biden for. Trump voters, seventy four percents they were voting for trump because they meant it as a vote for trump only twenty percent of trump voters they meant more as against Joe by. So you have this kind of asymmetry where go Biden's voters are enthusiastic about voting. They're just a disaster about voting against president trump not necessarily copilot and it'll be his challenge over the next couple of months to keep. Those voters in the fold one point I wanNA make on Convention bounces is Democrats as may recall or initially supposed to hold their convention in the middle of July five weeks ago. The idea was having an earlier convention would give them momentum through the summer carry through the Olympic Games would have been in the early part of this month would be ending right around now and that would set. Their nominee up well, even going into the Republican convention. In late August, obviously, they put back hoping that they could buy some time and still have an inverse invention with that didn't happen. We're stuck with these back to back virtual conventions and I think that's going to blunt both the virtual nature of the conventions, and also the timing factor Republican convention begins just four days after the Democrats conclude. Limit what kind of momentum each party I think can get out of this four-day infomercial that part looking to put on over the next couple of weeks. What kind of bump did the naming of Kama Harris as the running mate for Joe Biden? What kind of bump did that provide I know and the first forty eight hours they got forty, eight, million dollars. So the fundraising part of it was kind of their but polls, what were they saying about it? Well we see only a few polls conducted after Joe Biden named his running mate and they're pretty consistent with the polls that were conducted right before earlier last week. So I don't know that it changed the race a lot but what we saw is overall voters telling pollsters that they approve of the choice Joe Biden made arguably a safe choice choosing an experienced candidate who has exposure on the national stage voters got to know her during her presidential campaign in twenty nineteen CBS News of a Washington. Post. CNN. SRS sound maturities practices choice to that's not uncommon majorities approved of John. McCain's choice of Sarah Palin in two thousand eight in the first days. Obviously. Whereas well with voters over the closing couple of months of that campaign. So it's not unusual for there to be enthusiasm around the right after it's made the Salads or Democrats and for Kamo houses to keep that going the her momentum going through the convention this week, and obviously the other key moment for her and for Vice President Mike Pence Day or debate in early October
"palin" Discussed on CRUSADE Channel Previews
"And I remember I was on air. I actually was always women wasn't I'm trying to member member spent twelve years in any event. I was for the first day I was there we the broadcast it live? Are We got? Got On the the the the tape later on in the day but no one knew. Now. I knew who Sarah Palin was because I tried to get an interview with her and I come with. Larry, CR-. Very close. had, tried to get an interview with her because she was the the then governor of Alaska and she was doing insane things about the You might remember member member her was a an oil shortage and two, thousand, six seven or so where the soon as Pelosi took over in the house of representing all of a sudden and oil shortage RECCO faker. Gas. was like four, fifty, a gallon in California something like that. We had those bumper stickers shut up and drill. Well, Sarah Palin has governor Alaska's other. We got plenty of oil the Hell's wrong with you people. We have a pipeline a week and send it to you with. And she was saying it look you need to come to Alaska and drill. We got oil coming out of him. You can figure the rest out. So I tried to get an interview with then governor Palin They've got a member member that town we didn't have skype. Didn't have the the the ways of communication that we have today. So she was gonNA. Do we just couldn't work the times when event that I knew who Sarah Palin was is the point. So them McCain has is big whoop de do press conference, and then they go live and then he announces who is GonNa be and no, one can believe it. No one can believe that the governor of Alaska Sarah is going to be McCain's running mate and of course they had flown in. Pretty sure. It was in Arizona and She comes out on stage and slaughters it man I may just kills it. Because he's a very charismatic person I've actually met Sarah twice? Played. Their. Session I actually told her last time I saw. Sarah Actually Santa's. Need to apologize kind of scandalise you when you're in a rounded, defend yourself from. Sorry about it. She went Oh, where he about it oh, it's all good. I got. There's a pictures people like at pitchers I got a picture somewhere me and rob minus and Sarah Palin any event. Let's go back to two thousand and eight. And member member what the Demon Krantz did..
Joe Biden says voters 'ain't black' if they support Trump, then apologizes
"You have a problem figuring out whether you're trump and you ain't black it don't have nothing to do with trump. It have to do the fact. I want something for my community. I would love to record van. You're saying he still hasn't shown you why you would vote for him. Specifically a black woman. Running me is necessary especially after the day when we see a black person voting for trump. And you know trump is the modern allowed people in this country. That does make you question how much that person cares about his people. So I understand the statement shop from a from a whole white male. Joe By some fallout from that tense interview between Joe Biden and radio host. Charlemagne the God it comes as Biden has acknowledged the next stage of the vice presidential. Vetting is about to begin. And so we thought we'd call on two of our own colleagues who have quite a bit of experience with that process as we debut a new segment on our program the powerhouse players with ABC News Contributors Republican Chris Christie and Democrat Rahm Emanuel they will offer insight and analysis like nobody else as the two thousand election ramps up and rum. Let's get right to it. You heard it right there. Joe Biden putting his foot in his mouth. He apologized for being so cavalier. But where does this go from here? Well first of all I think what it does is obviously influences. The vice presidential selection. Everybody that tells you. A dozen isn't being honest. It has an impact on a weight on the scale etc and I think the Biden campaign credit for mealy jumping on it and try to Deflated everybody is united in the party with a single goal of beating. President trump. I would step back though and say violated a simple number one rule. You have to project that you're gonNA earn every vote fight for every vote just like you're gonNA fight for this country and what this said underneath was. I'm going to get your vote no matter what I do. Because the other guy's worse than me. And that violates politics one on one but Chris. The trump campaign was immediately out with ads. Criticizing Biden does that continue sure. Of course it doesn't and here's the problem Ramadan. I've talked about this before. The Biden campaign should do everything they can to keep Joe Biden in the basement and stop talking because as soon as he starts talking he starts to create problems. He's in the phase of the campaign right now where it's really a referendum on the president unless he turns it into a binary choice and by doing things like he just did. He's turning it into a binary choice and rob complements the Biden Campaign for defusing it. They've had plenty of practice in trying to defuse these things and they're gonNA play anymore. I suspect in terms of the impact on the vice presidential pick. Though I hope it doesn't impact it because if it does he could take himself down the McCain Sarah Palin route which is not the place he wants to go in my view. This is a first. Do No harm pick for Vice President Biden and run by was already under some pressure to choose a black woman as a running mate. He says multiple or under consideration. Does this increase the pressure? In the likelihood he will choose a black woman. It adds weight obviously To that effort and I think you know I believe in I think you have to look at the history of Vice President. Used to pick a vice president. One do no harm to balance your weaknesses whether it's geographic or ideological when President Clinton picked Al Gore. Jason Southern Moderate Tennessee Arkansas. He Changed The paradigm from balance to partnership. And I think you look at it. It's not like George Bush had worry about Wyoming or president or Senator Barack Obama had to worry about Della Gore's electoral votes. They answered a political part of the equation. But they also added a partnership Element I think in the end of the day the most important vetting after you get to the final three will be president. Senator Vice President Joe Biden. See this person. His partner in making these critical decisions and that to me will be the element that amounts. Because when you look at Sarah Palin she did not fulfil John McCain's message themes and who he was as a character and it became apparent to the voters. This was an impulse. Joyce real choice of a partnership and Chris Biden has committed to selecting a woman. Does that box some in? Was that a good idea. Well listen it's his call right and what it does is it eliminates about fifty percent of the population. But that's his call. I think that you know here. It's even more Stark Martha and Robin mentioned. One thing that I think is very important. Joe Biden if elected will be seventy eight years old with a history of some health issues going into this. The American people are going to be looking a little bit different than a partnership. They're going to be looking at this person to say. Can I see this person as president even more starkly than they do with a normal vice presidential pick? I don't think anybody was worried about Barack Obama prematurely dying office. I don't think anybody who's worried about George W Bush in that regard and so looking at this choice. He needs to look at it that way as well given Senator Biden's vice president binds agent so of his history. I've gone through this process twice myself and being vetted and the partnership matters significantly there's no doubt but also that person has to be able to see you but more importantly the American people in this instance has to see that choice as someone they could see as president of the United States that in the next four years.

You're sort of a part of the book in that you. You're going back and saying well these places and revealing what you think about as well which I think is a very interesting way of writing a book but I like the way you home in on that small historical details which is important as well but this you talk about the guy who had been in the battlefield griffin can walk around the ship on his head recreated Trafalgar. That's great cat character. There's a guy who chokes on a piece of these thrown up. His something like that is there are wonderful things in research. Actually what what always attracts me? The little eccentric stories me not not I mean. I like the big idea of the journey the Arabist to Antarctica that. Nobody knew anything about that journey. I did not read history and then whenever told me and they were that you know. Little sailing. Ship goes to Antarctica the first ship to circumnavigate Antarctica to you that there for four years they come back with harvey any illness on board. Nearly all of them still alive. It's truly stunning story. But what interests me is when I started researching just little things like him. There's one with they're just in the ice sheet and that trapped in their terrific storm when the storm and the ice sheet. The ICE floes just sort of rise up and crack it sounds a hideous thing and the wind blows. At one point it blows fish flack onto the side of the ship on the debt. That and they'll things is amazing.

The Product Management System of Record
"Today's episode number three thirty three is a blast from the past. I I started this podcast back in November two thousand fourteen and this is actually the second episode. It's on the topic of the product management system of record and kind of how to cobble one together with a wicky and is from way back there in November two thousand fourteen. You're probably haven't heard it because it's only been available on the secret. Product Manager Handbook site but not in the regular all the responsibility feed. I did change. PODCAST feeds the next year. Now I mentioned at the beginning of small product conference. I was speaking king at the weekend. After a record the episode and at that conference I presented my idea about a product management system of record and the little prototype that I mentioned that I built in confluence more importantly at that conference Hubert Palin who was in the process of starting product board at that time now at the time and still today I consider product board to be the closest assist application in the market to what I would consider a product management system of record as I describe in the episode so it was really great timing now product board is obviously not baling wire and chewing gum. which is what I describe using in the episode but I'm afraid most project management organizations don't even have the version I describe in this episode? Let alone on product board. Now I have two interviews with Hubert Palin from back in two thousand fifteen put links into the show notes to those. I think you'll find the ideas about the product management system system of record as a concept. Hold up pretty well five years later even if the way I suggest building. One is slightly obsolete given that product board and some other applications are in the market thou I'm GonNa Talk Today about what I've been calling the product management system of record partly. This is because it's been top of mind for me lately but also next week as I speak this I'll be giving a workshop on the product like management system of record on building. One out of what I call Baling Wire and chewing gum at the product summit in San Francisco there will be a link to this workshop shop and the rest of the product summit in the show notes now product managers. We create products shirt. That's in our name but but don't forget the rest of the process that we go through to be successful. Those products need to solve an urgent pervasive market problem for a defined group of customers who who are willing to pay for the solution and when we create that solution we need to get it to market. We need to have the salespeople in the marketing people know what to say to the market market so that people will know that they wanted and will buy it so to do that. There's a bunch of activities that we do as product managers we talked to customers. We innovate around what we hear from the market. We validate those findings of new market problems. And we define product plans to create the solutions to those problems we specify features we guide the creation of the solutions and we work with sales and marketing to get the solutions to market. However we don't have a system of record for any of those activities except for potentially stuff around features if we're using a bug tracking system or requirements management system? But all the rest of it. We don't have a system of record for example. If I or you go out to a customer customer to do some market research what happens. Well we'll talk to the customer will interview them. We'll take some notes might be in word or on paper in evernote when we come back from the customer. We'll tell everybody had visited the customer. That's awesome. I'm I might send out a copy of my notes There might be some snippets of information in there and the notes that that seem important so I might highlight those maybe even pull them into another document where I might look at them later in the future. Hopefully some of that conversation when will float up in my brain when I'm talking to another customer or after I've talked talked to several customers and I'll start to see that there's a market problem that I can do some innovation around around. That's all what happens today. What doesn't happen today? Usually is that the interview notes become an enterprise asset. No the words they become accessible to everyone and valuable to everyone and the key snippets of information. Those things that I highlighted the tidbits. They don't become an enterprise asset either which it means that other people can't make use of them now. This is just one example of a lot of activities where we PM's do something important but there's no official place to put the outcome of the the activity and I can name dozens of these things that we do where we create something that you certainly could imagine as an enterprise asset but it's not stored in that way. So what would we better well. Let's get back to the customer interview example. I'd like to be able to easily compare the snippets. I learned today with what I learned last week last month last year and of course maybe I can do that with a lot of work based on my old notes but also like to be able to compare what I learned today with what you learned yesterday or last month last year or what some product manager. WHO's no longer even with? The company learned last year or last month. The reason I'd like to do this is that one of the ways you discover. Mark problems is not by talking to individual customers but by talking to multiple customers and seeing how the things that they talk about start to overlap. I'd also like a way to show. How the snippets I gathered last year are turning into features this month? This is really valuable. For talking to developers for example it turns out to be very very compelling for developers and motivating just as it is for US product managers to understand how what they're working on is driven by the needs of a customer summer and by helping a customer have a better life in some way. Now of course whenever I talk about my snippets also mean your snippets and all the other snippets from the Enterprise Prize. And I'd really like to see just in general be able to go back to all the things we've learned from customers at any time and rifle through them to see if new insights pop up. That happens pens all the time. If you have a prepared mind or a system of record where all that information is stored now as I mentioned. There really aren't tools out there that can support this today. At least not in so many words so my goal in the workshop that I mentioned earlier over time is to come up with some ways to you take what we already do in other words. We're already doing a lot of manual work to capture this information and figure out. What's the minimum amount more manual work? We can do to make it a lot more value valuable in the way that I described so I have some criteria for the kind of manual work that I'm willing to do first of all there has to be too much of it. It has to save me from repeating myself and I'll talk about that later in the context particularly of sales materials. But but basically it means I don't have to do the same thing over and over again There's a lot of benefit in the resulting information. I Want I want my manual work to give me a lot of benefit in return for doing doing the manual work. And ideally there's benefit and actually doing the manual work. It's another opportunity opportunity to have insights for example. One of the things I'm going to describe is capturing these snippets that I talked about earlier which we may already be highlighting but I'm talking about highlighting them than copying them but by doing thing this interaction with these snippets. I'm probably expanding my brain in terms of coming up and being able to see more easily problems at the customers having so the real question is what's the maximum payoff. I can get for the minimum additional amount of manual work. If you're familiar with Tim Ferriss and his forearms body book he talks talks about the minimum effective dose. So what's the minimum effective dose of manual work. That will get you a really good payoff. But it won't be that much work and you can think of this manual work. Also as kind of a concierge version of the ultimate product management repository which vendors may create as based based on maybe these conversations that we're having today now all quickly run through a basic outline of my vision of a system of record that's built out of Baling Wire and chewing gum. In fact it's really built from a wicky and I've been working a little bit with confluence as my system of record and I'll tell you about how I'm sort of setting that up. I'm calling it a system of record but that might be a little too grand for some of you. You can also call it a product management repository but the key point is it's capturing data that we already create but in a way that makes it more usable more valuable more multiple of the way that I've divided up are SORTA at the front end of the process in other words the finding market problem part of the process and the back end the go to market part of the process so the components for the front end of the process or the finding market problem pro part of the process. Are things like customers. I'm GonNa have a page in my confluence at LaSalle the customers customers. I've talked to and for each of those customers. Going to be a page and link to that page the interviews awesome and then linked to each of those interviews is going to be the snippets that I've gotten out of those interviews and I've got a particular way of doing this. It's a little bit of a manual process. You go through the interview. You highlight the snippet. That seems interesting interesting. You copy that into another page. Just all the snippets from all the customers. And it's a that's essentially a table that table of snippets Has the snippet it has. The customer has the date it may actually have multiple customers. Because what might happen is as you go through. You might start to see. Oh I've I've heard the same thing for multiple people people. That's actually one of the things you're aiming for.
Data reaffirms expectation for a slowing in consumer spending
"More we are so lucky to have Danielle DiMartino both in the studio with us here chief executive officer and chief strategist of quill intelligence also a Bloomberg opinion column as a former fed employee in Dallas and you know I really want to focus on the consumer we got a number of data today I got a point consumer spending came in lower than expected and the Bloomberg consumer comfort index plunged the most on a weekly basis in eighteen years in eight years and yet Jake how this put all of his eggs in the one basket of saying we're not going to cut rates as long as the consumer hangs in there it's a big bet on his part I mean he really really is not diversifying fed policy let's put it that way all right so I take it just from that come along that you think that the fed you becoming more it's not so much the rate will look the economy is slowing and it gets tiresome to listen to these press conferences when Jay pals clearly in denial yes interest rate sensitive sectors actually let's just say sector because autos really haven't budged in fact auto buying intentions in the latest consumer confidence data are crashing so the only thing the only needle that's been moved by these rate cuts in housing that's it and and we're seeing as I was as I was just thinking least worst we saw in the bank earnings reports that the credit card spending rates have been coming down revolving credit has been a tremendous support for consumer spending we're seeing the saving rate take up we saw that this morning it took up to eight point three percent consumers are clearly battening down the hatches were seen deposits cash savings increase as well so I think the consumer senses that there's something amiss but again that's where Jay pals got all of his bass all right there are two questions implicit here first question well cutting rates actually encourage consumers to spend more no there it it's it's now I I don't think it will and that you know might mean he's been very good at press conferences about drilling him on this what are these rate cuts going to do I think the rate cuts have more to do with the plumbing in the financial system because the fed is buying treasury bills like there's no tomorrow and money market funds are arbitrage in this by parking their money at the fed where they get an additional ten basis points it's boxing the fed into where they have to continue to lower rates okay the second question that I have is regarding that credit card spending is the biggest banks I read the heard on the street column in the Wall Street journal about this and it was not that it is declining it's just that the growth in the credit card revolving credit has been lower right coming down and I guess they're two ways to read this you could read this as a tempering of the economy which everyone knows that it's slowing and you could or you could look at it as out waiting consumer confidence and a sign that things are gonna turn south which is the correct read I think that consumers know that there is slowing let jobless claims of barely moved by the breath of states that have increasing jobless claims has increased from about a third it hit seventy five percent in September we're running about fifty one percent now of state in the country with rising jobless claims and to your point about growth in credit card spending slowing the average weekly earnings will get new data out tomorrow morning but in June it was running at a four percent right in September it'd take down to two point six percent that's the paycheck growth it's not so much that income is declining it's that households know that their paycheck is no longer growing at the same pace so it's it appears a chairman pal and some members of the the dovish fed if you will are thinking about it it's all about the jobs and everybody's got a job on points at its all time low briefly tell off the sidelines a lot blah blah blah blah so tomorrow what's the what do you look at the cut through the blah blah blah tomorrow the jobs number so I'll be focused tomorrow on the sectors where we're seeing job growth if you looked inside the internals of the eighty P. report yesterday one sector financials that was the only one where you saw any growth of any kind and super large companies over a thousand place otherwise you name the sector contracting and you name the size of the business seriously slowing growth so I'm going to be looking at where jobs being created we've seen in the survey we've seen in the soft data that service and employment indices have come down with in in the case of market it's a ten year low so I'll be looking to see what types of jobs are being created dig into this consumer comfort data and you will see that the highest income earners their confidence has been coming down mom at a much faster pace than the people who they employ who still have high confidence are the is the consumer a leading or lagging indicator absolutely lacking every recession like sixty three percent of post war recessions we have been in recession with with expanding consumption it is not something that you look to to

"Again, Mike Murphy and pop culture is quick to wheel on you as a character. Now, Palin with her lack of depth and gravitas made a lot worse. But I think the, you know, the this thing changes because Hillary got a fair amount of beating. But when Hillary runs for president, Saturday, live is. Pretty soft. I mean, funny, good material when Palin runs the whole turret turns and she was ratings. She was show business. So she got in that hot frying pan which the campaign wanted because they thought she was a star and she couldn't take it. And the world of evaluating candidates, I think, is a little harsher on Republican women than democratic women. Whether the media's tougher on Republican women is up for debate, but what's not debatable is that the media is tougher on women in general, especially women running for national office in fact Palin. And of course, later Hillary Clinton got more negative coverage than their male counterparts and a lot more discussion about their appearance. On the other hand, the McCain campaign seemed to raise the specter of sexism to try to knock you late governor, Palin against criticism. Once again, here's Jessica Yellen when she was named and when she was headed into the convention we haven't had time to really vet or no that much. But I got the call saying, this is an able experienced knowledgeable deeply engaged politician who has a vision for the future of the country and any coverage that reflects otherwise sexist. And it was almost laying down a marker and why were they being so defensive about her knowledge as a reporter, your antenna immediately go up going? Oh, that's interesting. What do we have. Investigate here. You want women in the public eye to rise or fall on their merits, and if they come under gendered, sexist attack, speak up and pointed out. Absolutely. But in the case of Sarah Palin, she would miss on the basics. She would do the Katie Couric interview in not have answers. And then when she took heat, say that it was a sexist. It was sexist to criticize her. Do think coverage of syrup Palin was sexist? Yes. In a different way, how first of all? I think she was dismissed early because of her gender. She was treated differently because she was an attractive young female. We don't have many women running for high office who are still. I don't know how to say this in their sexual prime who haven't gone through menopause who don't look like dowager 's, you know, if you have gray hair and you're like a grandma, that's a lot less threatening. But when you have a woman like. Sarah Palin, who's on the cover of Newsweek magazine wearing short shorts and showing her legs. Even though she didn't pose for that specific cover. It's threatening in a different way because she's both attractive and seeking Jason's the highest office in the land. So I think that played into how she was treated Murphy sees another difference Trump was different from Palin in that he'd been on the apprentice for ten years in a fake boardroom built out of cardboard and plywood, pretending to fire. Second rate, celebrities who are pretending to work for them to do product placement commercials inside the show. But the perception was he's the CANDU incharge no BS art of the deal guy. And he was famous Palin. Her hand was totally unknown until she got beamed up one speech to the convention. So she was a lot more vulnerable. I think to a media take apart. She was a blank sheet and was defined by stupid. You know, pretty soon in somewhat sexist ways. So Trump Trump had a lot more natural armor and Trump is also more adroit at attacking. Institutions of Palin had a little bit of traditionalist enter because the rules were different than and she also had a running mate was not gonna continent that stuff at all. So she was in a tougher position than Trump. I think both in terms of environment and what she was armed with. Meanwhile, in the aftermath of the two thousand eight campaign Palin also positioned herself in a new way. As a victim here, again, McCain adviser, Steve Schmidt, and a co Wallace. So this is this moment in time where you know the ability to portray yourself as a victim of whatever the deep state big media, right?.

"You make America. Great. Again, are you ready for that. President of the United States, Donald J Trump penguins endorsement was seen as a real boon to Trump's candidacy because she still had a big following among the Republican base. That's right. And at that point, Brian is you'll recall very few people thought Donald Trump would ever get the nomination, but Palin seemed to be right back in her element at that press conference, particularly relishing the chance to needle the national media spending media heads are spinning. This is going to be so much fun. The surprising rise of Donald Trump made me reflect once again on those interviews I did with Sarah Palin. She might not have been able to name a single newspaper or magazine, but she did read where the electorate or at least a significant part of it was moving. She may have stumbled over issues, but she found firm footing on the political stage where image and personality seemed to Trump policy details and Katie. She was really early to a trend that's exploded since the financial crisis, a declining faith in institutions, disdain for experts and elites not just here in the US, but around the world. Only thing that people in this country have had enough of experts with over. Cronyn saying expo with oganizations with acronym saying they know what is best and getting consistently wrong also seen more and more fear of the other Europe grappling with refugees and America with undocumented immigrants, both Palin and Trump made these issues central to their message. Here's former Obama, chief strategist, David Axelrod. There's no doubt that pay Lund's appeal and Trump's appealed draw on racial resentment. That's not the entire story, but that's a, that's a big piece of it. And you know, in Trump's case, he could not have been more self conscious about it from the time. He came down the escalator, you know, blasting in the ugliest sort of way at at immigrants from Mexico that bring in crime, their rapists, and some I assume are good. People he went after the racial resentment vote. Oh, we should point out. There are two fundamental ways. Sarah Palin was not like Donald Trump. One was her critique of Russia. It's true that our comments about Russia were ridiculed at the time, but Palin assessment of Putin back in two thousand eight feels spot on today, and we've got to keep an eye on Russia for Russia to have exerted such pressure in terms of invading a smaller democratic country. Unprovoked is unacceptable, and we have to keep balloon provoke. I do believe unprovoked and we have got to keep our eyes on Russia under the leadership there. The other difference. Oh, yeah, Palin is a woman obviously. And I wonder whether Palin gender can help us understand why she was punished for her lack of knowledge in two thousand eight, but eight years later, Donald Trump managed to get away with knowing very little. Sometimes shockingly little don't believe those phony numbers when. You hear four point nine and five percent unemployment the numbers probably twenty eight twenty nine as high as thirty five. In fact, I even heard recently forty two percent. I know more about ISIS than the generals do policemen lower incarceration rate for Mexican immigrants and legal immigrants than we do for any US born since a wrong statistic. Go check your numbers. It's totally wrong. It sounds good. It sounds good. It's a wrong statistic. Check your numbers. I asked Nicole Wallace who was palace adviser during the early stages of the campaign. If she thought sexism played a role in why Trump succeeded and Palin didn't. Sure. Of course. Again, you know, Donald Trump is is more ignorant than Sarah Palin. Didn't go down trying. She fell asleep at night with a highlight or in her hand every night trying to bridge the gaps in her knowledge and trying to not disappoint Don McCain. I didn't see Donald Trump and I discovered him. I never worked for him, but I didn't see him trying at any point to bridge any of the gaps in his knowledge. So I think she paid a bigger price for her ignorance than Donald Trump has for his. When you are conservative Republican woman, you challenge kind of the rules of women are supposed to be here..

"Clothes purchases that were obscenely inappropriate. You had no gifts being logged in, and each one of these things was a felony violation right of Alaska ethics law, and I and I honest to God, believed that if we were somehow able to manage to win in this, she never would have made it to the oath of office because of the hundreds of felony violations of free gifts, free shit and everything else that they it off of the campaign, and it would all come out. So wait a second. You had total confidence that if McCain were elected, Palin would never have become vice president at right by the middle of it. Because each pair of Ferragamo shoes was a felony that's a felony the ethics laws of the of the state were crystal clear. This seems almost in this era of Trump almost trite. But if the McCain campaign was getting exasperated with Sarah Palin, it was clear she was getting fed up to. I think that there were probably a moments and times where Sarah decided screw this. I'm just going to do this the way I feel it, which always got the more natural response from the audience. And that was really evident a lot of times when she McCain, where together that's Michael Steele, the former chairman of the Republican National Committee, he defends Palin style of aggressive campaigning, which was so different from John McCain's more measured approach. Listen here is McCain speaks with one of his supporters at a town hall. This is one of those classic McCain moments that was replayed a lot when he died in August. I can't trust bomber. Obama. I have read about him and he's not. He's not. He's a. Here's an Arab. He is not. No, no, ma'am. No, ma'am. He's he's. He's a decent family man citizen that I just happen to have disagreements with on on fundamental issues, and that's what this campaign is all about. He's not thank we're scared of an Obama presidency. I have to tell you he is a decent person and a person that you do not have to be scared as president United States. Now I just I just. The thing is McCain actually had no problem going negative against Barack Obama, but there were certain lines he just wouldn't cross, but for Palin, there didn't seem to be any lines. She didn't hesitate to pay no bomb as different from her and her supporters. I am just so fearful that this is not a man who sees America on a man sees America and America as you in is see, America is guilt by association..

"You said the US should absolutely launch cross-border attacks from Afghanistan into Pakistan to quote, stop the terrorists from coming any further. And now that's almost the exact position Barack Obama has taken, and that us Senator McCain have criticized as something you do not say out loud. So governor Palin, are you two? On the same page. We had a great discussion with president Ben in early October. Bad news started to surface in Alaska. Sarah Palin found herself embroiled in trooper gate with July, Palin fired. Alaska's public safety Commissioner, Walt Monica. He says he was fired because he refused to fire Palance former brother-in-law, Mike Wooten a state trooper, and then. There was the so called bridge to nowhere on the campaign trail. Sarah Palin said, thanks but no, thanks for that bridge to nowhere up in Alaska. If our state wanted to bridge, we're going to build it ourselves. But as it turns out she actually did support that project which really undercut her image is this outsider who defied the wastefulness of Washington, and then in mid October leaks from the McCain campaign about governor Palin 's a Radic behavior and reports that she had been spending lots of campaign funds on clothing for her and her family like a hundred and fifty thousand dollars worth a New York Times article from late October noted a seventy five thousand dollar tab at Neiman Marcus and about fifty thousand at Saks Fifth Avenue. All these embarrassments really started to add up. It was pretty clear. The McCain campaign was falling out of love with Sarah Palin. So Steve at this point, did you entertain any thoughts of replacing her on the Republican ticket. Campaign strategists doesn't. I mean it doesn't have that power right unilaterally that Steve Schmidt, a senior McCain adviser. We heard a lot from him in part one. We had a conversation amongst a small group after Lehman Brothers went down in the global economy. Collapse that this was something that we would talk about, we would entertain, and that would only be on the basis of upward momentum in the race. Brian, we were both stunned when Steve Schmidt told us that your Katie, I thought this was absolutely incredible. In other words, Schmidt and a small group within the McCain campaign agreed that if it looked like McCain might actually win, they would go to him to discuss dropping Sarah Palin. She was creating not just political problems, but potentially legal ones as well. You everywhere. He's candidates go there. They're handed, you know, a jersey jacket. Hit. You know, there's some, there's some gift that someone gives and you know, for McCain in Obama who were both senators and the ethics laws with felony provisions on it, you have to take those items, log them in, send them back to the campaign headquarters. And if the candidate wants this stuff at the end of the campaign, they can buy it right. But you can't accept the gift. And so in Pailin case, you had hundreds of thousands of dollars of.

"Even though that's the essence he gave off. I'm a peanut farmer. Well, no, he wasn't and I don't believe he really understood how people how they related and how they understood, which is why he gave so many speeches that nobody understood. But I think that that is an example of someone who did not understand the country that he wished to represent. And I do believe that Sarah Palin had a better understanding of who we were as people, even though she's from Alaska, does she know policy now? Does she know the details behind this stuff? I don't think so, but I think she understood and understands who we are as country. That really depends how you define who we are as a country. I think she understood some Americans not all Americans, namely the Republican base and Palin was picked in large part because of fear of alienating that base, which was, of course a preview of their growing power in our politics. She was also painfully for the McCain campaign, a stark contrast with their country. I all about experience messaging. She was not a knowledgeable experienced politician. Meanwhile, I think when she was tapped Brian, there were a lot of undecided, swing voters who who really hadn't figured out if they could support Barack Obama, perhaps feeling he was not experienced enough, but weren't convinced they wanted John McCain either when Sarah Palin performed poorly. During that interview? I think it not only cast her about light, but it made many voters question John. McCain's judgment before we go. I want to play one more thing. Nicole. Wallace told us thera- Palin probably should have been tweeting and talking to Fox News..

"So the first interview ends, everyone knows it was a disaster for Sarah Palin, but there was another interview scheduled and Katie you recently asked Schmidt about their decision than to go ahead with it. Why did you agree to let her do that second interview? Because if you don't do the second interview and have any recovery from the from the first one, the first one is amended in there. Right? Is just like when rocky fought Mr. t. in rocky three and got his ass kicked. Right. Is there how to be a rematch. The way you dealt with the first one was by winning the rematch in the second one with the competent performance Katie, I love the rocky three comparison. I guess that makes you Mr. t. to whom you're often compared the fool. So Palin gets back in the ring. Nice. And in this round there is perhaps the most famous exchange of all. Yeah, you know, everyone asked me about this moment. If they remember a question from the interview, it's this why it was during a walk and talk following a rally in Ohio. We were just actually getting b roll of the two of us. She had already done one interview and I could tell she was getting pretty sick of me. She seemed to have such strong us. I wanted to know where they came from. So I asked her what she read and when it comes to establishing your world view, I was curious what newspapers and magazines you regularly read before you were tapped for this to stay informed and to understand most of them again, with great appreciation for the press for the media. I'm curious that you. Any of them that have been in front of me over all these years? I have. I have a vast variety of sources where we get our news to Alaska isn't a foreign country where it's kind of suggested it seems like. How could you keep in touch with what the rest of Washington DC maybe thinking and doing when you live up there in Alaska, believe me. Alaska is like a microcosm of America. And the interesting thing is that earlier that day we saw Sarah Palin on her campaign plane reading a print copy of the New York Times. So I think at least occasionally she read newspapers when I still can't figure out is why didn't she just tell the truth watching the fallout from this interview was unlike anything I'd ever experienced in years in the business. I mean, I knew we had something big when we finished that I tape ING, but I couldn't imagine just how big it would become. Ultimately, the interviews sparked a really serious conversation in the media and among voters about whether Sarah Palin was qualified to be vice president and whether the McCain campaign had truly done, it's diligence in vetting Sarah Palin, here's Steve Schmidt. Again, if you're the governor of the state. My assumption was you had a aptitude or a like of reading history government. Knowledge policy. So you believed going in, there was certain threshold of knowledge that she had to possess as the governor of Alaska, one hundred percent. So you never said, do you know where rock is? Do you know what happened in Afghanistan? Do you know what a credit default up. Do you understand the US tax system though? The answer is no Tanny of it, but I believe that she likely was somewhere in the mean of basic knowledge is someone who's been around a lot of politicians in help prep them, Iran, Iran to supreme court confirmations was John Robertson, Sam Alito ready for those hearings on day one, hell, no, right. But go through the process you get there. Again. The assumption is that there's a baseline there and it was a terrible sanction that I tend to ten years later, not make us options about anything. Now how could he be governor of Alaska and be so ignorant on so many issues? It's. Why Jeffrey Dahmer eat twenty seven people. I don't know. I asked Frank Luntz about whether Palin was qualified and he said, being a candidate isn't all about understanding policy. I think that having a real understanding of people. And their hopes and fears is as important as being smart, intellectual and give you a comparison. Jimmy Carter, I don't. I think Jimmy Carter was not a good president and arguably intellectually he is one of the smartest we've had in our lifetime, but he had no real understanding..

"Sarah Palin represents. Another mayor. Join. After her extraordinary performance at the convention, Sarah Palin continued to, wow, the crowds at rally. After rally are ready to send us to DC after rally. I am at home because I see the car hearts in the still. But it was also time for her to face a tougher audience journalists, and Katie as soon as Palin was picked. Of course, we started trying to land and interview. Yeah, I was determined to sit down and face. Sarah Palin one on one, not to quote get her, but really to learn more about her and let the American people see who this person really was. McCain's team felt the same way. They thought it was a rite of passage for political candidates. Once again, here's an Ecole Wallis. I do remember thinking it was important to do the places with the most reach. And so I remember the two networks that we settled on ABC CBS let's talk about our relationship. You were a CBS news, political analyst, and then you went on leave or left to work for the McCain campaign. So you and I did have a personal relationship, but that really didn't have anything to do with this, right? This is one of the funniest things about how. Jalen sort of internalized it any other campaign. It is viewed as sort of an asset you worked for Katie. You understand the kinds of things. She's interested in the idea that either one of us would be trae our professions that that I would, you know, put my finger on the scale for you and not. The ticket is is such a misunderstanding of how it works. I had an insight into the things that you asked any politician, the things that were of interest to you. I worked for her and tried to do my best to use that inside into what you liked to cover what you were interested in, and I understood that you'd ask things that hadn't been asked before with big interviews lined up. The campaign started prepping Palin and almost immediately Steve Schmidt realized there was a lot of work to do so I get on the bus and I say, you're gonna meet meeting your foreign policy briefing team later today. I just want to store it. I just wanna talk you narrative -ly about the counterinsurgency strategy underway in Iraq. Twenty minutes later. Was like somebody get me a map. I was like, this is a rack. This is STAN. These are people who lived in caves who came here on nine, eleven and attacked us. Know there. They weren't from Iraq. We attacked them. Did she think they from for sure. Wait the people responsible for nine eleven. One hundred percent. So I'll have an conversation. You know where she's thinking about, you know, it's the Queen that the president would deal with on any one of a number of issues and. You know, I've kind of blocked this out. I recall being physically sick walking off the bus into a bathroom over it, but was shocked. Scared shitless. Couldn't believe it. First time I'd act are it was obvious that she had not been not just a participant in any of the policy debates that transpired Neo in the previous five to ten years, but she hadn't paid attention to them. You know, this is kind of the occasion where there's tough conversation I was. I was really angry, but you know, as as they say, we had a fix it. We had a, we had a prepare and the we had to get ready for, you know, these first national interviews. So Katie we should step back for a second and talk not just about the position. Sarah Palin was in at the time, but the position you were in at the time, do we have to..

"So Katie back in two thousand eight. As you know, I worked with you at CBS is your political producer and we spent a lot of time getting ready for those interviews. And since then we've actually spent even more time thinking and talking to people about those conversations. And Brian, we should mention that one person we didn't talk to for this podcast is governor Palin herself, but not for lack of trying. We did reach out and we asked her if she'd like to participate, but we still haven't gotten a response in order to understand Sarah Palin you. I need to understand the McCain campaign staves here. Are Are you. you. Steve, we sat down with Steve Schmidt, a Republican strategist who had worked on the campaigns of George W Bush and Arnold Schwarzenegger of never talked about any of the stuff first person. Great. So Steve, I got involved in the McCain campaign back in two thousand seven. When it looked like the Arizona Senator wasn't even going to be a serious contender for his party's presidential nomination. His campaign had collapsed in the summer of two thousand seven, and he had gone from front runner to last place completely broke. The national press corps was assembled in Manchester waiting for him to arrive. He came in on a Southwest Airlines flight in the back in a middle seat, you know, winter, you get out of the race and he called me, you know, and I helped lead, you know what comeback that. He was a big comeback in the history of presidential nominations from last I, but it was just completely overshadowed by the historic nature of the Hillary and the Obama race the day that McCain becomes the nominee of the party. Essentially, there's thirty five people working for the campaign were nine million dollars in debt in the four senior people. We're all volunteers evolved here all the way through by contrast day that Obama becomes the nominee. There's two thousand people working on the campaign is hundreds of millions of dollars in the Bank was like fighting the death star. And by the time we get to the summer of eight when I take over day to day responsibilities for the campaign, Barack Obama is in Berlin. I'm speaking to hundreds of thousands of screaming Germans in the Steuben plots forever. You let me thank chancellor Merckel and thank you to the people of Germany for this extraordinarily wealthy. Thank you. Watching this on TV on a day where McCain has the straight talk, express parked outside of literally Schmidt sausage house. Mets.

Senator McCain and his family we have nothing to add at this point This is really Hateful And the Senator said something a few months ago that he didn't, think and I paraphrase that he should have picked. Palin he should have picked Lieberman I don't know how well that would have, gone on the floor the Republican convention but what. Is this Annemasse towards Palin I mean you reach out to Barack Obama you reach out to Chuck. Schumer you reach out to Ted Kennedy Sarah Palin Sarah Palin ever do. That deserves this kind of treatment I've come to. Know the Palance mean we. Don't spend time together, we don't socialize I've never been to Alaska that's. Not my point but I. Feel like I know her quite well, we've spoken a few times she was on life liberty and Levin and she was really, good before, the program, we spoke and on the program we spoke I. I remember that that election in two, thousand eight but for Sarah Palin I think John McCain would have been beaten even worse And it was she who brought the. Crowds out twenty-five thirty, thousand I remember Leesburg Virginia my neck of the woods My family ran over there while I was on. The radio to see, Sarah Palin not John McCain This isn't a put down of John McCain but I I'm really quite, stunned at this If? You're going to be some detail meticulous about, what's going, to take place why would you Why would? You do that Just seems so mean Why because the media didn't like Sarah Palin because the media would. Focus on Sarah Palin if you're so media Centric than you, worry about those things but you really can't be And you really shouldn't be the, media as a group contemptible They know their contemptible they just want a minute But they are contemptible Here's what Sarah, Palin wrote in tweet About John McCain. Today we lost on his passing. Today we lost an American original Senator John McCain was a maverick and. A fighter never afraid to Stanford's beliefs John never. Took, the easy path on life and. Through sacrifice and suffering he inspired others to serve something greater than self And The Palin family Well always cherish their friendship with the McCain's and. Hold those memories, dear the source a source close to the family said. According to NBC now there's a class. Act right there Many of those in the. Media who trashed McCain now celebrate him Many of those in the Senate who hated McCain now celebrate him.
