So we've been talking about the industry for over five years the thing with the industry today versus where it was in two thousand fifteen is. There's a lot more money into it. And why is there more money. It's because podcasting is now mainstream with it. I'd casting as mainstream. Everybody knows what podcast is. Everybody can get podcasts on their smartphone. Everybody knows how to download the podcast award. They can find out really quickly or they probably listen to a podcast and didn't even know it so it is infinitely easier to consume podcasts into except podcasts than it ever was before you don't have to go to your computer download an episode. Put it on an ipod. Take your ipod into your car with some sort of connection kit and listen to it on the car. Listen to the headphones now. You have bluetooth headphones with your smartphone with active noise cancellation that just fit in your ear without any cords. I mean it's so easy compared to what it used to be.

Government issued Green past shows personal details and proves they've had two doses of a covert 19 vaccine. Now countries across Europe and beyond are considering similar so called vaccine, passports or immunity certificates. To inject life back into a flagging tourism industry and revive businesses and hospitality like pubs. UK is studying whether to introduce vaccines certificates, raising the possibility that Brits could soon need a passport for a pint. Okay. We haven't had stuff like this before. We've never thought in terms of having something that you have to show to go to a public theater. That s so they're deep and complex issues that we need to explore. Issues like potential discrimination against people who don't want shot, along with those who can't get one for medical reasons, or because there's not enough supply so these people won't be able to participate in life in public life in social life in economic life in the same way as their counterparts, you have bean vaccinated.

How voice AI is disrupting industries with Mike Zagorsek
"Thank you for the introduction as you said, the product marketing at at Sound Hound Really Marketing in general and been company about four years. Really to help grow awareness. Grow the business and. and. Really find and match companies and organizations who are looking to add voice interface of their products with. US essentially. We. And as you Dustin, as you pointed out we do have a long history we started in two thousand and five. The first ten years of the company's life was really known for this music recognition APP if And that was them strategic for a number of reasons. One is that it's in the round, the volume detection, but it really allowed our co-founders who were Stanford Ph D. students with a vision voice. The really give them the ten years that they needed to develop this independent voice platform hound defy. So in Twenty fifteen, almost ten years to the day. Of the founding they revealed Apply for three all. And thus brought us to conversations like this today. So is that the plan all along or was it something where overtime you saw? Hey, this is a growth opportunity we need to be in there. That was the plan all along. So it. The specifically, the the PA she thesis of our co-founders was I. Don't remember it exactly but you really around voice interface systems. In the form of a platform. So they they knew that to do it the way they wanted to, and ultimately the way it works with somehow today. Would take a long time so the As you can imagine for anyone in in a startup environment. Looking to raise capital saying well, we have this great idea for voice interface system, but it will take ten years. Usually Isn't the turnaround time that most investors are looking for so. The, the music recognition service was born from that and it really. It pave the way for. For, where we are now so it was always the vision and the, but the brand is very much associated with the the APP. The APP has three hundred million downloads worldwide. So keeping the company name, the same as the APP is a great way for people to get that instant recognition and then. And then this is the marketing side of me say was great that you love the music out but it's tell you about what we're doing now, versus if we completely rebranded and changed your name, we really be erasing ten years of awareness in momentum. You Justin. I. Come across. This was a long time ago actually and I can't remember who it was. That was talking about it but it was probably maybe even two years ago it might have been on the voice possum. But it was all about how there is the the company has managed to get. Some tremendous benefit. From first of all, actually trying to recognize audio. And I'm wondering whether you know whether this is part of your not in terms of like maybe what benefits has the company had that's maybe unique to sound given the Google Nuance. Amazon you know IBM they all haven't come from an area of of trying to identify or the types of audio they've just kind of tried to specialize in speech. Is there anything specifically that you're aware of the May have kind of given sound a little bit of an added edge through being able to recognize music. There's definitely a correlation there in fact what In addition to the music recognition, one of the features that a subset of. Users. Love is what we call our sing recognition and so we were the pioneers of that where if you had a tune in your head and you set, you sang it into Pratap about new. Sang it. There would match a database of songs and the way that worked was It was crowd source of people with sing the song and uploaded leverage that information and that way if you sang and even if it was not sung particularly well. He would match up and so the combination music recognition but also being a pioneer in this singing humming you. You're getting a feel for how does how do you deconstruct audio? and. And then match it to to patterns such that you can provide the right amount of response. There's definitely differences I would be wrong for me to say that. Everything. We took in music recognition able to parlay into the voice, but there certainly is a healthy overlap which which took advantage up. And you alluded to it earlier with a waiting. With hound defy what is hounded I, what is it that sound out as offering now in addition to the music recognition? Yeah, great segue. It's is the name of our voice Ai Platform? The it's Applied for a minute product. So users can create a free account on how dot com they log in, and it's a developer environment and You mmediately get access to. Voice. Interface product you can Enter Commands Program responses, we also have what we refer to as domains. So we've hundreds of a few hundred remains. and. They work. If you zoom out they work similar to something like Alexa skill or Google. Action. The differences that you are the ones that you want for your proxy with your voice enabling an APP or. Not Product And you decide. You wanted to be able to handle things like whether stock sports scores. Through how you can enable that and the Nice thing is there's no pressure on the user to then take any action so few and then ask the product you say. What's the you know the score weekend for the football. Game. It'll just answer because it's been enabled. So giving developers control. They get. Our our. Voice recognition are allieu response is access to the domains and and now we've We've we've prioritized working with partners. So if you now view are using the Mercedes and you ex cloud-based experienced. Honda Hondas Automotive, which we can talk about but also We're powering we have a partnership with Deutsche Telekom powering some of their their their products in the IOT space In the US, we have MUSICA music partner Pandora also snapchat so it's It's a it's a great tool to show the power. You can do when you have control, but it's also something we've been able to really invest with partners to elevate what they're doing in a way that's highly visible
Oren Etzioni, PhD: CEO of Allen Institute for AI
"Too distant future absolute at the Ellen Institute we've recently. Written. A paper that's going to appear in communications of the ACM on something we call green ai and the idea of it is both a to think about the the carbon footprint try to the can we build these more efficient systems but there's another threat here that I want to highlight, which is making sure that the research that we're doing is sufficiently inclusive. So so back in the day used to be that you or I or a talented undergraduate. In India or some other country with a laptop, could do something really cool and write a paper about it and get noticed if we reach the point where you have to have so much infrastructure and so much compute to do an experiment that leads the published paper. That's a real problem. For the field, right we don't get to harness all the brilliant ideas creativity of of a broader population, and so we suggested some some pragmatic ideas of how to fix that not by. Forbidding or cutting off. This very exciting high end research but by saying okay, let's also look at efficiency at results of okay. How can weeks run these types of models on a much more limited device but I I'm I'm so glad to hear that you all have written that paper pushing on that because I do think it's one of the. Fundamental issues that we've got at this particular moment in time with Ai, research these models are. There not only extremely expensive to train they are extremely expensive to serve. You got this cost thing that makes it difficult to make them widely available I mean like we could. I'll give you an example. I won't talk about GP three but I'll talk about this model that we build culturing and LG, which is a seventeen billion parameter transformer model and like the team only seventy seventy. Like it was extremely I mean we train this on a very large very sophisticated cluster. GP. Use It consumed a lot of resources and I like we wrote a bunch of very specialized software to manage the distributed training task and the model is very, very powerful. and. So one of the things that we're struggling with right now is I would love to get that model into the hands of as many people as humanly possible and. Like one impediment to get into the hands of as many people as possible is cost and like I think to your point, we can bring the cost down. By making a whole bunch of these investments like the infrastructure could be better you can distill the model. There's all sorts of like really interesting things you can do to. Preserve the models power and make it much cheaper to serve. But the other interesting thing with these models is it's general language model. It will enable people to put it in use cases that we would find objectionable and like by we I. Don't mean Microsoft. I mean we society and so you know it's it's. And I don't know how you train the model to allow it to do all of the powerful things that it can do, and exclude the you know the objectionable things that we're not going to want it to do and so that that is another thing that makes access a little bit tricky. So like do you get that into the hands of responsible people so that they can discover all of the good uses that the tech. Companies that have the resources to build these models will never be able to imagine on their own without you know an opening Pandora's box and creating more misery in the world very important questions of the good news. I do think they were making progress there. So some of it is you know the old adage, a garbage in garbage out. So you have to be careful what you feed this model is kind of like an innocent child. Rule read anything. So you have to be careful what you what you feed it that's typically not not enough because these things consume right you know billions and billions of sentences and documents. I'm a great believer in auditing techniques. So we also. Need to make moss like this externally auditable. So others bodies can help discover if there's problems in their if it can be tunes in negative direction. So I do think that you and Microsoft are very smart to carefully about these issues, but I do think that. Help is on the way. Well and and That I, think one of the foundational things I would like to be able to figure out sooner rather than later is just the way to allow the help to happen in an efficient and transparent and open man are because at least that much these to be happening it would be very ironic to have a situation where the very, very necessary. Public Open work that needs to happen responsibility and safety and ethics, and all of these other things can't happen because the people who are doing that work outside
Apple's HomePod Mini may pack a punch, but not versatile
"Upcoming from apple is the home pod many a ninety, nine dollar small compact version of the smart. Speaker that I introduced two years ago as the home homepage for three, hundred, fifty dollars, and now it's GonNa take on Amazon Echo speakers in Google's nest audio All three are selling for one hundred dollars I think that's this is going to be a big Christmas gift I have not heard the small home pod mini yet. They did a nice job of making it sound great. It's cute. It's compact it responds to Siri. It's supposed to have great sound what it doesn't have. Is, much abscessed other services beyond apple music, which caused nine, ninety, nine, a month. Let's compare. Apple will let you listen to music from the apple music subscription service or from. Pandora. Period. If you go to Amazon and like to listen to music on the Echo, you can listen on Apple Music Amazon music. spotify or Sirius Xm and unnecessary audio, which is the new name for the old Google home. Speaker. You have your choice of Youtube Music spotify serious Pandora. Now really interesting is that if you there is no free version of apple music so you want to listen to songs you either have to own the MP threes. Pay For Apple Music where on the other speakers spotify has an ad supported version youtube has an ad supported version in on Amazon against spotify has an ad supported version. Amazon. has a free version not it doesn't have as many songs as the premium version. So I think you have a lot more choice I will be doing a speaker showdown to see which one sounds the best. So far I've listened to the new nest audio which sounds incredible. If you buy two of them for a hunt, two, hundred dollars, basically one hundred dollars a piece you'll have some pretty amazing sound. An apple is suggesting we do the same thing with the homepage many which will be out in November the new. Redesigned Amazon Echo Speaker will be out on October twenty second. I'll have that soon, I'll fill you in on how it sounds while the new nest audio is.
A Look At Apple's Hi, Speed Event
"Few huge surprises at apple's high speed event though. There were some unexpected bits. Did. Anybody. See The verizon thing coming? Did we have any idea what? MAG SAFE WAS GONNA turn out to be. There we'll get to those. Most of today's presentation is drawn from a couple of viewings of the Apple Park presentation. We'll also pull from the usual suspects doing their usual bang-up jobs. Tuesday's high-speed event presentation started with Apple CEO Tim Cook welcoming viewers back to Apple Park than throwing the presentation almost immediately to others to give the INS and outs of home pod. Many. Bob Board richer's apple VP worldwide product marketing listed the company's desires for home pod. Wanting. The device to have amazing sound to act as an intelligent assistant to serve as a smart home hub all while protecting the privacy and security of the user. This, they say they do in a smaller spherical unit that costs less than one third of the original home pods original asking price. On the amazing sound side company bragged on the devices ro properties as well as how well it plays with others. Others being other apple devices. Users can apparently sink home pod many's either a stereo pairs or to play the same audio throughout the home. The. Inclusion of apples you one processor makes handoff easier to handle according to the company. For what it'll play. Well, there's the usual stuff apple music, apple podcasts, iheartradio radio DOT COM tuned in with Pandora and Amazon music on the way in the coming months. As for the smart part Home Pod, many will handle or interact with messages. Calendar phone calls maps music because. The. Weather reminders and find my feature. There was also an interesting demo where users ask for personal updates and got them. personalized. So he you know multiple voice recognition is key. Now. One new feature mentioned and de Mode was intercom. This is basically what it sounds like. You tell home pod to deliver a message to everybody and the various apple devices in the house including other home pods, iphones, apple watches air pods, and even carplay units play or display the message. I have heard entercom will work with the original home pods as well though not seeing that confirmed. Addressing. It's smart home hub nece home pod many integrates with apple's home APP that lets control home connected accessories said scenes and stuff like that. Covering User Privacy Apple, says no word spoken to Home Pod, leave your home until you touch home pod many or say he. S I are. So, yes, it is always listening but what it here's goes nowhere until you give it the command. Request. A home pot or not associated with apple ID. You choose whether recordings are saved by apple personal requests only work when the associated iphone is home with you. And communications with smart home accessories used strong encryption according to the company. Now I, said earlier that the unit is spiritual. If you've seen a home pod, there is no mistaking what this thing is. Same sort of light up display on the top same mesh wrapping it's roundedness and the same white and space grey options as the original home pod. Coming soon to flat surface near you. Orders for home pod many began on the sixth of November unit, start, shipping the week of the sixteenth of November. Not Price, to beat an echo but not a device that will break the bank. Home Pod many will sell. For, Ninety, nine bucks. Okay. I pretend to hear you say but I'm worried about breaking my home pause many. Not sure why but better to be safe in your case. To that end apple care plus we'll be available for home pod. Many. A piece from macrumors says, that will run buyers fifteen bucks. When Tim Cook was back on camera, he took a moment to Brag on iphones past noting the iphone eleven has been the number one smartphone in the world since its launch and that I phone has led the industry in customer satisfaction every year since it's Get ready to hate all of them as the iphone twelve line makes the scene bringing with it five G. Connectivity. Which one? All of them. Had Been Rumored Apple announced four iphone phone twelve models and has had also been rumored. Each can support five G.. Cook says, five G. Brings A new level of performance for downloads UPLOADS, higher quality video streaming, more responsive gaming, real time interactivity, and more. The CEO says five Jia superfast, which he actually pitched as a security feature speeds are so good. He says you'll be less tempted to sign on the public WIFI limiting exposure to the dangers that lurk there. Every decade brings new technology that provides a step change in what we can do with iphone said Cook. Today. A new era begins for iphone. Today we're bringing by G. to phone. Then began the verizon commercial. Hans Fest Berg Chairman and CEO. Verizon took to the stage talk about big reds five G. offering. Verizon's by ultra wideband with large quantities of millimeter wave access will be live and sixty cities across the US by the end of this year. In ideal conditions, Best Burg says the carriers seen four gigabits down and two hundred megabits up. The four gigabits is kind of funny own Antonio Guy says an ideal conditions. Well it doesn't sound like you're getting four GIGA beds but we'll get, him. The other thing best Burger announced was flipping the switch on Verizon's extensive five gene nationwide network. That apparently went live yesterday. Boy would I like to know the terms of the deal worked out between, that bill and Verizon? Emphasis on particular carrier. I did not see coming. Now I said iphone twelve comes in four models here the rumor mill rang true. The phones are iphone twelve iphone twelve many iphone twelve pro and iphone twelve pro, Max. Starting with iphone twelve, remember the squared off edges of iphone Four. The new design returns us to that. Squared edges that meet flush with the devices front and back glass the front classes something special though. Working with corning delay, this display is protected by what apple. Calls Ceramic. Shield. It is said by the company to be tougher than any other smartphone class with four times better dropped performance than iphone eleven. The display it's protecting is apple custom Ole ed providing truer blacks, better contrast and two times the pixels iphone eleven or four, hundred, sixty pixels per inch. While that displays the same six point one inches iphone eleven, apple shrank the surrounding enough to make iphone. Eleven percent than her fifteen percent smaller and sixteen percent lighter than iphone. Eleven Choice of colors is not huge but they are pretty. With options and black. White Product Red Green. And blue that. Does things for me. I shouldn't talk about in mixed company. The candy coating is nice. Let's talk about. It's Chewy. Chocolate center starting with the phones five Genus Apple says, iphone twelve has the most five G. bands of any smartphone for better performance in more places. Additionally the company's silicon, the software approach. Let's apple make the best use of available five G. including choosing to not use five. G.. It sounds like iphone defaults to lt e tapping into five G. when it's both necessary and available. That is great for power consumption according to the company. Apples tested the new phones on over one hundred carriers and over thirty regions. In ideal conditions iphone twelve gets up to three point five gigabits on. which is what makes the Brian Bragging about four gigabytes down kind of funny yesterday. It does support millimeter wave those so. got that going for it. As, for the phones on workings iphone twelve powered by apple's a fourteen bionic, the first phone powered by the five nanometer processor technology packing eleven point eight billion transistors roughly forty percent more than eight thirteen. A six core CPU that's up to fifty percent faster than last year's phone and a four core GPU graphics that are up to fifty percent faster than last year's model. Machine learning also gets a boost iphone, twelve packs of sixteen coordinator and Gen that's up to eighty percent faster than iphone eleven capable of eleven, trillion operations per second. Company bragged on Games claiming console quality for the phone. To Demonstrate and executive from riot games showed off League of legends wild rift a mobile, only game due out later this year. Well phone twelve is not the phone photographers would choose. There's plenty of improvement and it's cameras. Apple says the phone has a twelve megapixel ultra wide camera and twelve megapixel wide camera. It said the sport, the fastest aperture yet it also features a seven element lens that apple says offers twenty-seven percent improvement in low light performance. Mag Save is an internal thing. Rather than a name for a connector is in days of old MAG. Safe today is a collection of magnets and charging elements that help line up the phone for proper charging. When it's not charging those magnets go to work holding on cases and wallets and third party stuff. Apple expects a thriving ecosystem of third party doodads take advantage of the newly introduced MAG. Safe. Ness. Mag Safety. Safe thing. Anyway. It's a thing built into iphone twelve. Every model in the line. Now's probably phone twelve many. Except for the size, you can take everything I've said so far about iphone twelve and play it back. iphone twelve many has the same specs as iphone twelve though in a slightly smaller size. The company says the mini is smaller and lighter than four point seven inch models like iphone eight but with a bigger five point four inch display. Apple says, this one is the smallest thinnest and lightest five G. phone. In the world. Talking about last night with Frederik, Van Johnson, and a few other folks on Chuck joiners Mac. Voices. We came to the conclusion that the pro phones for two groups, people who wanna spend as much money as they can afford. Or people who really care about the camera. There's nothing wrong with the camera functionality and the iphone twelve or iphone twelve many. Unless you count they're not being as high end as the camera on the high end. No I'm not a high end photo guy. So there was a lot set around iphone twelve pro, an iphone twelve pro Max that escapes me. The camera on iphone twelve pro boxes said by apple to have a sixty five millimeter focal length from fifty two millimeter focal length and last year's counterpart. It's got five times optical zoom range and the set to support an eighty seven percent improvement in low light versus last year's top of the pro line. I do know enough to be impressed by one thing. The pro line can shoot an apple pro raw. or it will be able to with a software update. Later, this year photographers will also be able to edit those images. Directly, in the photos APP. The pros can also handle. HD are video recording catching seven hundred million colors. Sixty Times, the number they could capture before. Apple, said they also sport the first smartphone camera that'll record in dolby vision hd are. And just like the apple pro raw functionality users will be able to edit the dobie vision HDR video in the photos APP. Finally the light are rumors were finely true the twelve pro and twelve pro Mac speech or a world facing light detection and ranging scanner. That let folks scan and modeled their surroundings. Apples Demos showed that put to use for placing objects in an augmented reality environment performing improved autofocus and low light and improving camera that perception in low light for night moat. Working our way out of these phones, Greg, Joswiak, apple's newly minted senior. VP Worldwide Marketing talked about a few of the pro lines features. It's got mad safe. It's got ceramic shield. It's got a Super Ratna FDR display. As for sizes iphone twelve pro gets bumped from five point eight inch display display size of six point one inches the pro Max meanwhile goes six point five inch display to a display size of six point seven. All of it is bound by the same squared off edges as iphone twelve, the with a couple of distinctions. I. The outer band is stainless steel on the pro line and second the colors are a bit more refined. Coming in silver graphite a gold that looks seriously golden. And the Pacific. Blue that doesn't do as much for me as the blue on the IPHONE twelve. Not that I'd turn it down. If cost is your primary concern. Here is what you're looking at across the whole line of iphones. iphone se. Start Three, hundred, ninety, nine dollars iphone ten are starts at four ninety, nine iphone eleven starts at five, ninety, nine iphone many starts at hundred ninety, nine dollars iphone twelve starts at seven ninety, nine, iphone twelve pro starts at nine, ninety nine. An iphone Pro Max starts at one, thousand, ninety, nine dollars. For the new phones though those prices are only Kinda SORTA true. Peace, from the Mac Observer says iphone twelve many an iphone twelve do start at six, ninety, nine and seven, ninety nine if you buy them as a t and T or verizon phones if you buy one is either a sprint or t mobile phone or as an unlocked phone. The starting prices are seven, twenty, nine, and eight, twenty nine. With no indication as to why. While it's great that ceramic shield means less of a chance of broken display. The chance is still there. If that bugs, you apple care pluses there for all of them. macrumors says, two years of coverage will run one, hundred, forty, nine dollars for iphone and twelve mini. Adding loss or theft protection will up that price to to nineteen buyers can get ongoing coverage for seven, ninety, nine per month or eleven dollars and forty nine cents with loss and theft added. As for the higher end phones, the pizzas, two years of Apple Care Plus will cost one, nine, thousand, nine or nine dollars ninety nine cents per month. Theft. And loss coverage bumps that price to two, hundred, sixty, nine dollars or thirteen dollars and forty nine cents per month. Ongoing. As for availability, apple is starting in the middle. And working out. Would owners can order iphone twelve and iphone twelve pro this Friday the sixteenth. October. They'll be delivered the following Friday the twenty third. If you're targeting either end of the range. iphone twelve, many an iphone twelve pro Max will go up for order on the sixth of November. Delivery should hit the following Friday the thirteenth of November. Barring incident which I have to say because. Friday

What You Need to Know About the iPhone 12
"Apple held its second big virtual event of fall yesterday word announced an updated home pod smart speaker, and of course, the headliner its first five G. capable iphone. We originally expected this phone in September but production was delayed due to supply chain issues from the pandemic. Now that it's here, we turn to senior personal tech columnist Joanna Stern to tell us what we ought to know join us. Thanks for joining me. Thanks for having me. Joanne on tell us about this new iphone twelve. I think you mean four new iphone twelve's because in making things much easier for us all to understand apple released four new iphones. But they also have these slight differences. There's the new iphone twelve mini with is actually not that many but does look a lot smaller than the last few iphones we've seen. Then there's the iphone twelve and then there's the iphone twelve pro and the iphone. Pro Max you got that all. Only. Just. So what new features did we see I think that's what makes this year's upgrade pretty great is that there are lots of new features across the entire lineup and the big ones include five G. Five G. is an all of these new phones. There are new designs of all of the new phones more square edges looks a lot like the iphone five or the iphone four was very nice beautiful design some. Really happy to see that you've got camera tricks and you've got all new screens, new Oleg screens across the entire lineup plus your favorite anew charging configuration. Right? I am very excited. The design has a new magnet in the back. This is not visible, but it's below the surface and there's a magnetic coil and apple is now rolling out a new accessory line called MAG safe. You might remember the name from those old macbook. And these magnetic accessories will clip to the back of the phone and one of them is a new wireless charger. That apple says will be a lot faster than usual wireless charging, and of course, the big update here is five G. capability. Five networks are supposed to be the next generation networks and bring faster download speeds better connectivity. And we know investor sentiment has really reached a fever pitch in anticipation of this new phone, what are they and apple hoping this new phone can do for the company I think they are all thinking back to other quote unquote super cycles, and these were big leaps in iphone technologies whether it was big leaps in screen size or big leaps from three G.. To Four G. and there was a lot of excitement around these almost a decade ago and that really got people to upgrade in by new phones because the technological leaps were significant here we're seeing a little bit of that, but it's certainly not the leap I. think that investors or even apple thinks it is especially in five G. I've tested a lot of. Five g phones and they can be very fast but they can be pretty fast when you're in specific areas and when you're on your phone, you don't really feel those speeds. Of course, what the investors and apple are hoping is that the speeds unlock newt sorts of innovations, new types of APPs new types of technologies that run on top of it we saw. This with four G. Four G. unlocked a whole new generation of APPs things from Uber to instagram our phones could load these things faster. Now, our phones are pretty much fast enough. What are we going to do with this faster speed? That's the big question yeah, and we heard over and over again during yesterday's presentation that quote five G. Just got real you've quite. A bit of reporting on five G. Networks I wonder what's your take is five really real now for smartphone users five G. Israel and you can get it but you have to be in a very specific set of circumstances to get it. You need to have the right carrier you need to be in the right location in verizon sense you actually need to. Be Outside standing near a opole. So it is real but is not going to be very real for most users right now. So it sounds like there's a bit of a disconnect between proponents of five G. and consumers. How are we expecting to see apple and their carrier partners trying to close that gap? A Lotta this is about future proofing you have A. Five G. Phone now, and these networks start to get better and they start to get better pretty rapidly. I have to say I have seen a substantial increase in the last year last summer I had to journey to different parts of the US to get five G.. Now, I can just go to a different section of the city or a different section of. My neighborhood to try to test out five G.. So it is getting better the speeds are getting better but there are a lot of technical hurdles and there are a lot of glitches frankly, I mean, there are times when I testify g and the same exact spot and I could get blazing fast speeds, one minute, and then another minute just sort of four speeds. Are Joining as our senior personal columnist. The big question is, should people upgrade to this phone or should they wait my advice is to wait for my review but if you're looking preorder, my first piece of advice is do not upgrade just for five G. that's not a reason to upgrade. But what's really nice about what apple was there was a whole other big feature set that you get here that isn't just tied to five. G. You get those nicer designs you get that nicer screen you get that more compact form factor. If you want to get that many device loads of new camera tricks many that I don't frankly understand and need to even dig into because the presentation was so packed with all that information. So don't just go by for five G. go by for the big package and what it all means together. All right anything else that jumped out. At you about yesterday's event. Yes. Interestingly, they started the event talking about the product that we never remember that apple makes, which is the home pod, a new home pod mini, and this is a really compelling little product. It is a smart speaker from Apple Ninety nine dollars. Obviously, they're to compete against the Amazon and the Google Minis of the world lots of features that others have had before it's lagging in music support. No. spotify and Pandora's not going to be there for a couple of months but seemed like a compelling holiday gift by
Cassandra Speaks and the Power of Women as Storytellers with Elizabeth Lesser
"So Elizabeth let's talk a little bit about storytelling. Why is it so powerful? This is the way humans learn. We've always learned through story. I. Mean I often think about the first human sitting around the first fire kind of grunting pointing and telling stories about What's going on here? How did we get here? Where do we go? When we die? What do we do in between the way we learn the bestest through telling stories, making up stories to explain mysteries to create power structures. It's all done through stories I totally totally agree with you and I also think storytelling is the greatest tool when we're trying to change narratives but I do think that throughout history stories have mainly been told through the eyes of men do you agree? That's how our stories have generally been told. Well, I certainly do agree I've written a new book. That's all about that. I wrote it because I've led these conferences for years for women maybe about fifteen years ago I thought to myself why do I get so uncomfortable when I put the words women in power together women empower those even makes me uncomfortable and it certainly makes other people uncomfortable makes men. Really uncomfortable. I. Just thought why is that I wanNA gather women together whether they're in the arts or leadership or astronauts or any place where women are in that space and say, what do you think about power had a you feel about the word? Is there a way to do power differently and over all those years I heard from so many great women but I never got to the bottom of why Why did we get to this place where we trust ourselves? So little women why we're always apologizing and giving space to the more powerful and how do we get back and how did this happen? So I went back into the oldest stories I could find five appre bio Greeks, Chinese, the stories and elicit. It's just bizarre and amazing. How many of the earliest origin stories are about I to be created male second in creation female She's the first to sin, and that story is repeated over and over whether it's eve or Pandora or Cassandra or other tales we were born second, but we send I and there's a lot to unpack in that idea that women got blamed for a lot of the general problems of being human and that sticks to us stories, stick to humans. Created only by men are really stories about men. This is the problem with many of our origin tales hero's journey myths. And Foundational Literature left out of that Canon. Are the voices and the values and experiences and priorities of women. When women join the storytellers, the human story changes. You might think I don't read the Bible. I. Don't even know who Pandora is what, but it sticks to us and we're still run by those stories. And I think that also when you look back at how women have throughout history for as long as there is time been basically property of men and you think about how we are today and how those stories have evolved you know like I just learned recently that rape was always almost justified if it was someone who owned their woman whether that be through marriage whether that is the enslaved and so throughout history I don't think there's ever a time that we can look back to where true feminism has ever been even within our reach any country I think it's something that we strive for I think it's something that we understand the intersection -ality of an how really vital it is but I Don't think you can go back to a time where we were empowered. So my question to you is what changes when women become the storytellers we're seeing right now how hard it is to change narratives, Anna how much effort disruption it takes, I. Mean we're seeing it with white supremacy. Now, that story is being exploded in front of our eyes so that we can change it. You can't change something that you don't see.
Why NFTs Are Attracting Everyday People to Crypto
"Everyone's been talking about tease or non fungible tokens this week for those in the audience, you aren't sure what those are. If you remember Crypto kitties which were unique collectable digital casn I still think they exist. That's just one example Jake. Can you define what a non fungible tokens and then we can dive into why there's so much chatter about them. Now, absolutely, I mean the simple definition of a non fungible. Is a token. That represents a unique asset work to crypto currencies where we have many units that are all worth the same like if I had one ether Laura when ether those are you know they're the same value but if I had one crypto kitty and you had another Crypto Kitty, they actually might be valued totally differently your crypto kitty might be really scarce and valuable might be resume common, and so non fungible tokens they really represent this this. This class of unique assets that's out there. Into what's been going on with them recently, why has there been so much chatter. Well. As someone who's been watching the space for for a very, very long time for from the very beginning. When Rare Pepe? Images were to be traded on counterparty with it seems like about Elian. Years ago. It's a long time ago. How is before Cryptic Eddie's? I think what's what's actually happening is that the space of non fungible assets is maturing a little bit and what we've seen is actually a little bit of interesting early conversion of digital creators are creating art and collectibles and other kinds of NFC assets, and they're starting to trade them on marketplaces in the volume on these marketplaces is going up a bit and related to that I think investors have matured a little bit in their thinking about the NFC space and they've started to position in. Make investments a venture style mostly so far? In companies that are that are in the NFC space in it's been very exciting. And there's even a little bit of the yells farming thing going on within fifteen. So I think that's another reason people are getting excited because even though the crees has died down from the fever pitch, I still see. In it But you actually wrote a really interesting blog post about an of to any you had like another definition that you gave, which is you said that NFC's liquid intellectual property for digital content. So what do you mean by that? Yes. This is exactly. What I've been sort of saying is like most people have so far rushed off the NFC spaces. People trading funny pictures on you know on blockchain's. and. If you sort of thought experiment a little bit in you in, you start to understand a little bit of a kind of financial use cases that NFC's enable. You start to realize that if you take this view of teas as strong ownership of digital contents. Things get quite interesting and the first thing to observe is that there is just like a lot of different kinds of digital contents. Certainly there's certainly there's collectibles. But there's also three d models or metaverse assets. There's also stock photography. There's also blog posts that people right and then monetize through syndication. There's music on which artists earn royalty. There's movies which get distributed on platforms like Netflix on and so forth, and if you start to count up the number of digital objects on the Internet and in the world, you actually start piling up quite an asset classes of objects, and if you start to think of NFC's is being kind of a very fitting technology to denote ownership of these objects to denote the royalty streams of these objects on the start to get away from a little bit of the speculative aspects like, Oh, I buy Crypto, Katie I'm going to. Flip it to somebody else later, and you start to get into the more fundamentally valued aspects of of non fungible assets, which is like, Hey, maybe, I'll own the revenue stream to Taylor, saw Taylor swift song or album or something like that or maybe I'll own the movie rights to certain like digital character that I'll be able to license out and when you take that view of. NFC's as liquid intellectual property. What you start to realize is that most intellectual property doesn't live on secondary markets today, it's kind of liquid and what blockchain enables is the liquidity of these markets, and so the reason that I'm super excited about NFC is as an investor is I think that we're about to unlock a whole lot of value that previously has been in these non-traded like. Paper rights, but as about to get a lot more digital. So I have so many questions about what he said. But before we can into those, I do just want to make one comment, which is I notice near blog posts that you had a chart of different kinds of content and one of them said written content. And underwritten it was like movies and videos, and I was like what about articles and e books as a writer? I just had a point that you missed. Right there because I would not call videos and movies written content and and also like even just knowing your example when you mentioned blog post. So is like their professional writers to who like a living writing But. Anyway. Okay. So we were talking you were talking about if he's from the Creator's perspective, but I wanted to ask also. So right now as a consumer I already have you know multiple libraries of music that I can tap like you know music stream from apple or spotify or Pandora Soundcloud, etc or you know I can go into these different stock photography sites or whatever. So what's in it for the end-consumer like what would get them to make a switch? Because basically democratize is the ownership in in this kind of content, right? So if if you think about of stock photography site today like getty images or shutter stock or something like that, I mean you're talking about a private business that is facilitating marketplace between stock photographers and purchasers of stock photography like designers or making websites, and so on and so forth. And this marketplace model is exactly the thing that blockchain. Technology in my opinion was really born to to disrupt and what basically wh what can happen is we can replace that proprietary provisioning of the marketplace with a decentralized smart contract based system, which is exactly what marketplaces like like recently wearable have done, and we can give the ownership and the governance of that system to the community of people who are participants in that marketplace, and that's really really powerful value proposition that blockchain's in general

Are Most Words Already Trademarked
"The writer of today's episode. John Perry Tano rescued two cats from a local vet back in nineteen ninety nine and named one Pandora. He says, he was reading a lot of Greek mythology back then. A couple of years later and Dora Brandon jewelry became all the rage. What if John had trademarked that name I, but he and his friend could have been swimming and cat treats. Yet even if he had thought of it according to to New York University, law professors, it probably would have been too late to cash in. It seems that many of the words we use every day are traded marked, which means it's difficult for entrepreneurs to find good names for new companies. Take Pandora for instance, search the US patent and trademark office database, and you'd find a number of companies that already use Pandora in their name avatars and logos. There's a Pandora Hair Collection Pandora radio and yes Pandora's box. The two professors looked at the six point seven, million trademark. Filed at the US patent and trademark office between two, thousand, three and two, thousand sixteen, they then studied a database of the hundred thousand most frequently used words in American English it's called the Corpus of contemporary American English according to the Oxford English dictionary. There are a bit under two hundred thousand words currently and using the English language but according to the website test your vocab dot com, the median adult native English Speaker knows only about twenty to thirty, five, thousand of them. But back to this study, the authors also reviewed a US census list of the hundred, fifty, one, thousand, six, hundred, seventy, two, most frequently occurring surnames in the United. States. What they found will knock your socks off which by the way is also trademarked they wrote in a two thousand eighteen issue of the Harvard law review the data present compelling evidence of substantial word, mark depletion, a particularly with respect to the sets of potential marks that businesses prefer most standard. English words, Short neologisms that are pronounced by speaking and common American surnames. NEOLOGISM is a term for newly coined words or expressions. NEOLOGISM is still available to be trademarked though other common words do have pending registrations including even the word the. Yes. The currently has eleven active trademark resignations. The result of so many trademarks is that new businesses have to strain their noggins and use variations of Noggin are already taken to come up with Mon. occurs that aren't already claimed or resort to what's called a parallel registration. That's when two companies use the exact same name as long as it won't confuse consumers a for example, Delta faucets versus Delta. Airlines. The authors wrote given these conditions. New applicants are increasingly resorting to sub optimal marks. The data indicate that applicants are applying less often for standard English words and common surnames and more often for complex marks as measured by character syllable and word. Count. and. All of this could likely explain why we see more company names like flicker Tumbler and lift olive which leave out letters or incorporate other misspellings of common words.

"If we don't eat will. Why does night come because without night there is no day, epi me. Theus tried to quell Pandora's curiosity as much as he could. But when her desire for knowledge became too much, he found himself growing frustrated, he tried to tell her that some questions, couldn't be answered, and that some knowledge couldn't be obtained, but it only made her more curious. Lied to the waves. Come on the water, the wind blows the water. Why is there water? I don't know Pandora there just is. Dora was upset things had been going so well at the start of their marriage. When Epimetheus was still enamored by her beauty, and he still found her questions adorable. But now she could feel him growing tired of her. Would he want his solitude again what he force her to leave? Where would she go, Zeus wouldn't take her back to Mount Olympus, if she failed that her mission of being a good wife to Epimetheus Pandora wept openly fearful of what would happen? Suddenly, she heard a voice call out to her. It's soothe her telling her that everything would be all right. She searched the house for the voices source finally realizing that the voice was coming from Zeus jar, which had found its way into the attic Pandora was so happy to see the gift. She burst out the door to show it to Epimetheus. Zeus gift. What are you doing with it? I'm at Meiring its beauty. Look at this wonderful relief of Zeus, defeating krona's. A little voice from inside the jar told pen Dora to keep quiet about its presence to keep quiet about how it had called her if it looks this wonderful on the outside what must looked like on the inside. Don't open it Epimetheus approached Pandora to take the jar from her hands after their wedding night. Epimetheus had hidden the jar from Penn Dora, knowing pen, Dora's, curious nature. He couldn't risk her opening it. Epimetheus was certain, it was a trick from Zeus, but he wasn't sure what the trick was he'd gone over the many scenarios in his head opening the jar would make Pandora ugly opening the jar would kill them both opening the jar would transport them to tartar us. Each idea was more horrific than the last Pandora give that to me. I just wanna peak, don't you? The little voice told Pandora to pull the jar away from Epimetheus. So she did backing away from her husband with the jar held tightly in her hands. I'm sure a glance inside wouldn't hurt. Anyone pandora? Sometimes we aren't supposed to question. We're supposed to listen. Now, give me that jar before Pandora could pull away again. Epimetheus snatched, the jar from her hands. Before Pandora could respond epi, meet Theus walked away. Putting the jar back inside the house and hiding it once more. More time passed and still pen, Dora's curiosity. Never waned Epimetheus had hoped Pandora would forget about the jar. But he had no such luck. At Meath ius didn't know the jar had been calling to Pandora begging her to open it. It told her about all the wonderful gifts hidden inside. Sometimes it even spoke in Zeus voice and told her that Zeus wanted her to open it. Pen Dora was conflicted. She'd made a vow to obey Zeus orders. So if he wanted her to open the jar, she needed to, but, conversely, she'd made a vow to her husband, and her duty was to be a good wife, then she recalled Zeus telling her not to open the jar on her wedding night. She didn't understand why the jar would contradict the original order it was all too confusing. Zeus watched from Mount Olympus a grin spread wide on his face, as pen Dora once again brought the jar to her husband. It's curious there's a lid on the jar. If it isn't meant to be opened. Why not seal it entirely and the knob fits, so perfectly in my hand, I don't know pen Dora, if Zeus doesn't want us to open the jar, that means there can't be anything, good inside haven't the gods. Tried to hide wonderful things for mankind before epi. Me Theus couldn't help but reflect on his brother when he heard this, the gods had hit fire from man. But premiered Theus had been punished greatly for stealing. It epi meet Theus, didn't wanna be punished for opening the jar, even if good things did come out. You really think Zeus is hiding a gift inside. Just think of the possibilities. I can only think of terrible possibilities. Allow yourself to hope I can't don't you understand. My brother is tortured every day. I can't risk the same thing happening to us. Give me the jar Pandora was shocked epi Meath ius had never got angry like this before she handed him, the jar, epi me Theus ran off away from the house and Pandora knew he was hiding the jar once again. Later that evening Epimetheus returned. He didn't speak a word depend aura. Instead, he ate then went to sleep hardly looking at her, eventually pen Dora couldn't stand the silence anymore, though, she tried to sleep piece, wouldn't come. She needed to convince him to give her another chance. She could be a good wife. She just needed to learn how at the media's at the please wake up. What is it Penn Dora? I'm sorry, nothing in that jar could ever be worth as much as my love for you. I promise I'll leave it alone. From now on forgive, you just get some sleep Epimetheus was tired, but he thought Pandora sounded genuine Pandora did as he said and together the couple slept better than they had in months. The next several weeks went by without incident Pandora took up weaving and spoke of having a baby Epimetheus, dedicated his time to tending to the farm. But the voices were persistent. They taunted Pandora night and day promising her a happier more peaceful life with her husband, if only she'd opened the jar, they needled her stoking, her curiosity. Feeding her need to know. Finally, she couldn't take it anymore. She had to open that jar. She had to know. Pandora told Epimetheus that she'd be in the forest collecting herbs for cooking and flowers for her hair Epimetheus not suspecting. Anything amiss watched her go happy that his wife was finding ways to spend her time other than asking questions as pen Dora crept closer to the woods, the voices got louder and louder. Soon. Enough Pandora reached the spot there, sap the jar beneath a tall tree Pandora paused, she thought of Epimetheus 's face so kind in the sunlight as he watched her go. She thought of Zeus is compassion, and providing her with life and caring husband, but the voices were louder more compelling than anything else. She hoped if this was the wrong choice, she would be forgiven. I'm here. I'm here Pandora crept. Closer to the jar the voices swarming around her begging to be released.

I think you're in those fabulous bum and then disappeared. I was like, cool. We should real. Did that really happen? Or am I just like delusional because we try. So that's so funny. I hope it was a ghost. A ghost shoe has logo. One. The ghost white women pass. Have you heard sex in drag. Yes. Back in the day I fancied myself a woman. Okay. But not that I knew I wasn't trans. There was a moment I thought I might be, but I had so many trans friends that I didn't. My story didn't match with what they were saying. I didn't want to alternate thing and I didn't feel I was in the wrong body. I just wanted to live the fancy being a woman. And so, yeah, there were there a few times quite a few times how my dressing room at this club. There were a lot of really, really like attractive guys like these guys I would have picked on me and high school. We're now the guys wanting to sleep with me. So it was like full fantasy and it was because at first I was loving it, but then I would kind of get too into it. And every time I tell myself now, you know, he's strayed strayed tickets now still straight, and you're going to have an issue with this going to be an issue. You're gonna fall for him. He's ill. No, no, I'm not. No, no, no, Yup. I did and then it all it was repeated the pattern several times and it took me a while to realize that. And I forced myself to stop dating after I had all those like straight men in counters..

"Experience that will delight you just like we do with music. That's something that is a lot of work going on behind. In the scenes, something that we plan to launch by the end of this year. And we think that you know, if you think about podcasts, the two things that that even though listening is growing fast, we think that there are two big problems. One is discovery. She that's course, strength depend aura and the second is monetization. Yeah. Gee, that's a core strength depend aura. And so we think there's a lot we can bring to podcasts and I'm excited about that launch. I in the music project, you guys have all those talented people that was sort of pick apart music and say, you know, this is like a, you know, female singer with like you know country, guitars, sort of like all these different identifiers. And so that immediately has me thinking, oh my gosh, what identifiers are they gonna put on me for this podcast. You know, it's going to be like smarmy host with bad jokes anyway, to keep me posted on how you guys describe me if you would. We will weigh. All right. I should have been nicer to you. All right. If you heard that sound, it's time for the lightning round. Now in the lightning round, I'm gonna ask you a series of questions. Your job is the answer as many of them as you can in sixty seconds. You're allowed to pass on any question, but should you do so you do not get credit for that question. So without we'll go ahead and we'll put sixty seconds on the clock. Roger. What's your favorite Pandora station? Classic rock. And what's the most time you ever skipped a track in a row on Pinterest station? Most times probably not many, two or three? All right. Why won't apple put Pandora on the home pod? Are they afraid of you? You know, it's not. They're not just picking on us to pick it on all the music services. They want to favor their own hint water or LaCroix a water. Have you ever ridden a scooter around San Francisco East Bay? I have. And how did it make you feel free. What's something that should definitely be on the blockchain music rights. Last show you finish on Netflix, the punisher. When's what's the last good book you read with one? I'm in the middle of right now is is sapiens. Humanity. It's interesting. I read that earlier this year as Westworld a good show. You know, it lost me after about the second episode. So not in my book. All right. Well, your answer completed after a minute was over so that one does not count. I'm sorry, even though I agree with you about Westworld. All right. We're going to total up your points. Eight points in the lightning round. Bring your cumulative total thirty eight coming up. Next, it's time for the wild card round. But first these messages. Our show sponsor is darned tough. Vermont socks. They weren't sure about our laugh track either. But like any other early stage investment, they've gotta take some risks if they want that sweet, sweet reward. Darned tough mix, premium Marino.

"To do through our premium product is give you the -bility to play anything. You want any playlist but also not make it so that you have to choose something because you may just want to let Pandora takeover and it does quite a good job at it and you can just sit back and let it play. Yeah, it, you know, it's I, I'm somebody who has always. Spend more inclined to the like lemme tell you exactly what I want to hear now school of thought. But I remember when Pandora launched and everyone I knew sort of fell in love with it immediately precisely because they didn't have to do that. So I think it's going to be very interesting actually to watch how your services evolves over the next couple years as you sort of try to understand your marketplace a little bit and and and how their own maybe tastes are evolving. So so you guys recently reported your earnings and you did very well, you beat an investors expectations, and I wonder if you could talk a little bit about sort of where where you guys are stronger now, maybe in ways that people don't realize and where you're able to earn more revenue. Yeah, we, we did. We did exceed expectations which was nice to do. It's actually the third quarter in a row since I've joined that, we've been able to do that and our subscription business grew sixty seven percent year over year. So that was a clear winner in this quarter, but also our ad suppo-. Business was very strong. One of the things I think that maybe some people may misunderstand about Pandora's, they think about free services as just as a funnel for paid, and clearly that's part of what we do at Pandora. But actually the majority of our revenue seventy percent of our revenue is advertising and are ad supported products actually have better margins since subscription. It's a really good business for us. It's also, I think, increasingly, strategic and the reason I say that is if you think about where most music listening happened still today, it's still radio. It's not Pandora, it's not. I mean pen or is the largest of streaming. But radio still has a massive audience and it's still a very old technology amidst broadcasters personalization to it. There's no on-demand interactivity. The ads are all broadcast not personalized. That's right. For change. And if you want to migrate the hundreds of millions of people who listen to radio every week to streaming service, will you better be good ads because that's..

"Everyone's listening to and like, here's this week's new music and Pandora, at least you know, from what I, what I've seen so far seems like it's still kind of laser focused on, here's here's your radio stations, just like click one button and then kind of forget it, which is kind of lean back experience that that you were talking about. So you know, is that a strategic choice or do you see, you know, maybe over the next two, three years Pandora evolving to maybe look more like one of these newer services like Spotify at apple music. I think you hit hit on the head. If you think about the the history of, let's take Spotify and Pandora. When Pandora started, they had a set of rights for music that had constraints on it. You couldn't allow people to create playlists. It just didn't exist it within the rights that they had, and it was going to be ad supported. So Pandora had to get really good at two things discovery, you know, lean back way which means really personalization really understanding who you are, what you're what the music is that. You like in creating a really highly personalized experience such that you didn't need to interact with it just played what you liked. Then also had to get really good at monetize ING, digital audio through advertising. Fortunately, Pandora got really good at both of those really excels that if you take Spotify, they started at it from a completely different angle, which is here's a search box. Here's all the music just type in what you want. And then obviously they've evolved since then and create a lot more functionality and playlists and auto play and Pandora's all creating premium. So services are moving more towards each other. But I think each is really playing off their core strains Spotify in terms of, you know, search and discovery and impera in terms of personalization, the lean back experience. And so what we try.

"I'm Casey Newton back after an unexpected week off, and I can't wait to tell you why my guest today is Roger Lynch CEO of Pandora. It's one of the most familiar names in music. And yet if you're like me, you might not have listened to Pandora in a while. Why is that? I wanted to talk to Roger about what he's been up to their. He took over as the CEO of Pandora last September after serving as the CEO of sling TV before that he worked at the dish network. This man loves his media, but I and speaking of media, you may have noticed that last week's episode of converge went missing, which I feel a responsibility to address as the host. So you know the way we do things here on converge is people agree to come on the show, and then we trust that they will honor their commitments as adults and last week, a couple of hours before the recording sash our guest who. Was the co, founder of a blockchain company called circle cancelled it when I say cancelled, did he call me? Did he send me an apology? Maybe an edible arrangement? No, yet as PR agency, send me an Email to say that he wasn't coming. So on one hand, I'm very disappointed by this because for the entire life of converge, all I wanted to do his bring y'all a blockchain episode and then Sean Neville of circle dashed those dreams. Now, at the same time, the rules of converge a very simple if you fail to show up for your schedule, appearance you forfeit, and that means Sean Neville. You've done something that many people believed would never happen, especially in our first season, you have lost a game of converge a show in which simply showing up all but guarantees victory. And so now until the end of time, you will sit at the bottom of the converge leaderboard with a sq. Score of zero, which will hopefully serve as a warning to all other guests who might consider cancelling on me at the last minute and yet to look at it from yet. Another perspective, perhaps to look at it from the bright side. That means that I am the winner of last week's game of converge huge. Congratulations to me. I have now won as many games of converged as anyone else in the history of this podcast. Andrew, I'm hoping you can play some celebration music underneath this part of the show. Maybe some fireworks people glowing. Those party buzzer things, but enough about that. We still have two games to play this season. Will anyone else lose? Actually, someone else does canceled on me today. So yes, someone did, but we're not going to talk about that right now. We're gonna talk about Roger Lynch and Pandora band, or it was one of the first streaming services I ever used, and it was amazing back in the day before I tunes even existed, you could fire up Pandora at your desktop at work and listen to a wide range of music that was personalized. To you, but then I came along and then Spotify came along in Pandora's started to lose listeners. So last year they brought in Roger in an effort to figure it all out. And as you'll hear in the episode, the business part of Pandora is still pretty strong, but how do you navigate a big company like this into the future? I think you'll be interested in Rogers answers, and it is now time to play converge..
