Self Made: Inspired by the Life of Madam C.J. Walker
"100 years ago, Madam C. J. Walker was the richest, self made woman in America. She battled both racism and sexism in a post abolition world. She created an empire of hair care products for black women, and she also employed an empowered thousands of black women across the country. Her story is the subject of a Netflix series called Self Made. Inspired by the Life of Madam C. J. Walker. The show stars Octavia Spencer as Thie, tenacious businesswoman, and Blair Underwood plays her husband. You see him struggle to live in the shadows of his wife's massive achievements. You might know Blair from L. A law dear white people or sex in the city. He also starred in the Broadway production of a Soldier's play. I talked to Blair right around the time. The play had to shut down early because of covert 19 back in mid March, and I started off by asking him why Madam C. J. Walker story is so important. She accomplished something that was just a monumental An extraordinary at the turn of the century in the late 18 hundreds and building this hair care empire Ah, woman. An African American woman, um, during that period of time to to earn that kind of money she did, And as you as you said, she employed and empowered thousands of African American women all over the world, So she was really you know, before Mary Kay or Avon or M Way she was creating distributors. People could have their own businesses and be their own business people at the time, So it was really extraordinary. It was amazing what she created, especially given the times in which she did it. Yeah, the early 19 hundreds. Incredible. So let's take a listen to a clip from the new Netflix series Self. This is you. Yeah, This is you and Octavia Spencer as husband and wife. New hotel downtown. The iron figure you will meet wouldn't go down. There could be a bell half you could do laundry. You don't just plant a seed and expect fruit the next day. Color women here. Just gotta get used to that idea. Somebody was doing ahead as all you know. I always love you big ideas, but I'm not going back to long enough. Now. Wait a minute. No way. Don't all made sacrifices You won't do was best for this family. Yeah, so there's definitely some tension. Attention that we hear that Cliff. How would you describe the relationship between your character CJ Walker and his wife, Madam C. J. Walker. Oh, loving but strained. I say, loving first, because I think that's the most important thing to know about. These two people is that they have great had great admiration for each other and affection. They came together and fell in love before she became successful before she became Madam C. J. Walker. Her name was Sarah. Breedlove. And my character's name is Charles Joseph Walker. So she's known in relationship to him. Mrs. CJ Welcome, Madam C. J. Walker, Um and then when she because of because for intellect and her driving her tenacity and her persistence. She as the brand became more famous, and she built. She was the driving force behind the empire that she built. And it was ah, a lot for him to swallow in tow handle into process on a day to day basis and There's alcoholism involved, and there was a womanising involved. And you know he himself was a man of his times on did not want to be defined by the woman in his life, no matter how much he loved her. It was very hard for him to just find his equilibrium in the midst of all of that. Yeah, and to figure out how to play second fiddle and still, I guess, maintain his masculinity or maintain the image of masculinity at that at that time, that's right and still feel of worth in a value. How did you get yourself into into that head space? That sounds like a really intense head space to get into. Well, you got nothing with acting you just Ah, In the simplest terms, we we played from people and we believe it A cz long as you believe more specifically that that you want this woman to win this woman that you're in love with that you want her to when you want her to succeed. And if you live in that space, and then all these other dynamics coming to play her becoming more successful, who are becoming more famous for becoming more well known, and then her ideas are the ones that really work more than your own. And then you you feel less diminished. But if it's rooted in the fact that you bonded and you came together as a team because of the respect and admiration and love for each other. Everything else kind of falls into place. You've been married yourself for 25 years. Did you draw on any of your own experiences in figuring out the power dynamics of a partnership for this role? Uh, yeah, I think you know you draw them everything you've got, because I was sorry. I should be more specific. I guess I'm wondering like you're a famous person, and I'm wondering if there's anything for you not even in terms of like gender roles. But just just just what it is to be a person who is in the limelight and and also trying to make sure that they're there. Partner comes along. With them and shines just as brightly. Wow, you know, Tommy, That's that's really great question. I I do think what What I've learned is that it's important to make. I find everybody around. You feel of value, but you're asking specifically in relationships. But I think that's important, too. You know that your spouse in that marriage or relationship that has a kind of dynamic Where one person maybe more known to the public. And it's more public facing that that person is aware Of how your mate might feel. My my wife doesn't care doesn't look for it, which is great, So it's a part of its part in parts of what I do as a professional is part of my profession. So there's no conflict in that respect, but But there is a sense of you know that it's important that she knows that she is valued in her world and heard her desires and her passions. And I think that's true for any relationship, so I definitely you know. Use that and this character just understanding that

The World's Highest-Dwelling Mammal Lives Atop a Volcano
"In twenty thirteen to mountaineers were nearing the top of Vulcan Judy Jayco a twenty two thousand foot tall volcano on the border of Chile and Argentina. When they saw something unexpected, just two thousand feet below the summit climbers spotted a mouse scurrying across the snow. It's really a remarkable citing his known expected wild mammals to be living at an elevation of over twenty thousand feet. At that elevations that the scarcity of oxygen oxygen that makes it really a challenging. Place to to survive in function. But then also just the extreme cold, it's an extremely inhospitable environment J. Starts and evolutionary biologist at the University of Nebraska. The climbers reached out to starts because he studies how animals adapt to high altitudes and he was so intrigued that he decided to make his own trip to survey the area starts and his colleagues spent a month that Jews Zhigo earlier this year where they confirmed with the climber saw they found mice everywhere including on the summit officially setting a new record for the world's highest dwelling. Mammal. Start says, the summit citing was fortuitous, his climbing partner Mario Perez, Mamani saw the mouse dive under a rock just starts made it to the top exhausted and groggy from the thin air. It took starts a minute together his wits, but he eventually managed to catch the mouse with his hands starts collected that mouse and others as museum specimens that will enable future scientific analysis. They also their encounter on video. The report is in the proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences now that he's home starts wants to understand how these mice can survive in such harsh conditions, and conversely what prevents other animals from venturing. So high clearly the the device that are living these extreme altitudes. Have physiological capacities that are very different from your typical rodent. He and his colleagues are comparing the genomes of the mice from Judea Jayco to their lowland relatives to see if they can identify the animals high altitude adaptations. He's curious whether they have evolved some of the same strategies as mice that live at high elevations, in north, America in the Himalayas. Starts also wants to know how mice are finding food on top of a barren rocky volcano thousands of feet above the highest green plants. On his next trip, he plans to analyze the stomach contents of the animals, the capture. It's really an open question to whether most species are whether they're elevation limit is set by physiological tolerance or just the lack of ecological opportunity. It's probably a combination of both whenever the answer starts suspects, there may be more high altitude animals out there than scientists thought, it's just a matter of climbing high enough to find them

Does Influencer Marketing Work
"Does having your business or brand promoted by a celebrity by influencer by tastes meagre in your market really work does it do more than just awareness as actually convert into actual sales? That's what we get into in today's episode. The first thing on a mention is that influence their marketing has levels. Okay. Now, everybody is going to be able to afford to use Shaquille O'Neal's influencers or Kardashian or the rock for that matter. Okay. But for most businesses, you don't need these big celebrities. You don't need these big names will you actually need is somebody who has a following? The has an audience that would be perfect for your products and services somebody who's really need. But has raving fans, I'll give you some examples. Pat Flynn is considered a influencer in the blogging community, the online business community. The content marketing community converted is a email marketing service for creators for bloggers. So pat is a big deal in that space. So when PAT promotes converted, it's going to move a lot of business because. I actually love what he says love what he does and they'll do a he recommends. So if he promotes convert it to his email emails on instagram on a social profiles does a Webinar that's a perfect match for converted. They're actually GONNA make more sales from Pat Flynn whose only known in that community. Then let's say a B. Actor who's well known but maybe doesn't have the following in that space. There's a cycled CAMEO DOT COM. The has celebrities that are well known household names that are willing to give shout outs and some people even endorsed businesses. Now, this might look. Cool and seem nice and maybe ego boost for your business. But it's probably not gonNA move a lot of sales because Kevin from the office is really not the authority in your niche market is not somebody people really trust in terms of a recommendation it's kind of cool thing to have, but it's not really gonNA move sales. So I really want to impress upon you today is you wanna find celebrities in your niche in your market who are the people that have the biggest following who is the biggest name in your niche if you're in the swimming niche WHO's the biggest? Swimming coach that everybody knows about in your country if you're into snowboarding who is a big snowboarder that is on youtube though has a following that people watch. You don't have to go with the household names, but the names that are known in your niche are really powerful because they can really really influence their audience to buy your product. So how does this all work? Well, I recommend when it comes to an agreement with an influencer is do a combination of a guarantee minimum plus commission. This allows them to have some skin in the game and want to push your product and. Promote it and recommend it and use it and give a testimony. So something like this would be like You know you're gonNA share this on your email list you're going to do a Webinar with me and you're GonNa you know post this on your social profiles, three times in one week and We're GONNA pay you. Let's say ten thousand dollars. Now this is just a figure I just pull out of my head. This is something that you can negotiate. It also depends on the following but in addition to the ten thousand dollars you WanNa say, Hey, use an affiliate link. Here's the link and you're going to get twenty percents on all sales. Again the percentage pulled out of my head. You can come up with the number of that's right for your business. But the point here is that they get a combination of cash upfront for doing what they do or even still fifty, fifty, five, grand five grand. In this example, you know five star five after the WHO fills obligations, and then they get the ongoing commission for any sales they get. So they can continue to promote you beyond the minimum commitment and they become sort of a partner with you.

To what extent does that that saying I'm already sick of it. I've been sick of like week three but you know it's it's just a knowledge the accumulation of what's going on like you and I had a check in before we even started recording like are you okay to record and that's like a new development at least in my world that I noticed people like very graciously doing because we're all on different. Energy sources like our levels are fuel tanks are all. Are All very sensitive right now and so I really appreciated that because there was there was one moment is like consent and permission and just self self awareness right and checking in were like somebody that I had a a meeting like a phone call with asked me that and legit thought about saying you know what? Like maybe it'd be better to talk a different day and. I had never asked. You know you just go just Gogo as a really appreciated that philosophically like the asked me that I checked in and I ended up saying you know what I think if we just keep it pretty of UK for maybe like a half hour instead of like doing a full hour conversation. So stuff like that is is changing on my end. Now know about what's going on in your in your world of like how people are gauging those things warmer. I think we are being a little bit more sensitive to each other, which is great I haven't done like my podcasts in a long time, but I have had a couple. You know just phone calls with friends while I'm doing like these walks and stuff and. A lot of it is. Hey Dude checking in opening up about like any feelings or. Anything like that because again, this is a really weird time.

Now well, over day into this aftermath of this blast of course, we've spent a lot of time in Beirut together over the years in good times and in bad. But what is the spirit of the city today? What's the spiritual sippy can be after you know I'm not going think immature I think everybody's so this mushroom blast you know. And someone course barrel Shema. So it's the second. Sousa search biggest love ever the over so. I don't know what can be. She would emergency mode on Tuesday nights of trying I. I was I drove from the mountains to within like half an hour which takes maybe two or three times more time. I was trending on the streets just to meet by partner who was wanted at the other end of the street. So I think first, they were completely under the show yesterday we were trying to. To suck leaning. Roberson. Understand who's alive was that was one bit and today is our survey after Sabang and trying to understand what happens and it's devestation.

To you know and. It's just keeping. Others today the. which talking to understand what happened it took us two days to understand I'm I'm curious to to understand also the psyche because you of course have been through so much as all Lebanese have the decades and of course, there have been there have been car bombs There have been of course, mass protests, and of course we know that Lebanon has been. Through a particularly difficult patch of of late and of course, this this happens I want to about the resilience of of the Lebanese spirit.

I don't want to hear sort at all anymore I even pronounce foods are. You know I can't hear it anymore I don't think it is what it is just sort of you know we have no choice but to survive But to be able to survive, I'm not able to to say the word was arch to be able to survive your orders need a minimum of strength or. or in your hearts, which is fine.

Seattle-area home prices unscathed by coronavirus pandemic
"The covid nineteen pandemic may have done a number on the Konami, but one area seems to be immune Seattle's. Is Still on fire, and all of this time inside has given homebuyers some time to think about what they need. Now Daryl fairweather knows something about that. She's the Chief Economist Redfin Hi Daryl. Hi? Be here. So Seattle's housing market was one of the hottest in the country before the pandemic give me the skinny on how it looks now. Seattle housing market is just as hot as it was before it's almost like that blip where we took a v-shaped dip is through it, and now the housing market is back. It's pretty astonishing. I know some potential first time home buyers had hoped. This was going to be there time. The economic disaster would help them actually get into the market that hasn't panned out at all why haven't prices gone down as the economy has taken a hit here. This pandemic recession is really nothing like the two thousand recession in the two, thousand, eight recession it started in the housing market with foreclosures, and after that, a lot of safeguards are putting in place where people with really excellent credit could get mortgages for homes or people who had the cash to buy homes outright, and since then home values have gone up especially in Seattle. So people have a lot of equity in. Their homes, which gives them a lot of cushion to keep paying their mortgage or refinance their mortgage at Super Low rates that we have right now. So there really isn't a lot of pressure on the housing market. If anything it's resilient. So a lot of people are working from home right now is well, maybe they need a little bit more space. How has that changed? What people are looking for in a House Yes that is another unique thing about this pandemic recession is is changing the relationship people have their homes before it used to be that the openly out was most desirable layout in a home. That's where you have this like really big area for entertaining where the kitchen flows. Until the living room people don't want that anymore. They don't want to hear the noise of their partner cooking while. They're trying to do work and living room are having their kids on their devices in the living room when they're trying to do work from there from the same space. So people want separate spaces for each family members. So they can each work from home or home school or whatever is that they're doing having just spent four months in the House with my family. I. That makes complete sense. We've just been together to learn. I think everyone's feeling that I wonder if part of this is a little bit of zoom and the because people can see into your house now. So the space that you're creating around you is also your professional environment in some cases. Yeah. I think that's true. It's not just the clothes that you wear to work anymore people are living and your background, and that gives them a sense of who you are as a person absolutely absolutely and You know buying and selling a home is an extremely emotional experience and we're at a pretty vulnerable state right now as humans I wonder how that showing up. Are you seeing that show up in the way people are buying and selling their homes? There's a lot of competition for home by right now, more than half of redfin offers are facing competition and I think that feeds into the behaviors we're seeing where people are really urgent to get home and we're also seeing war sight. Unseen offer is nearly half of homebuyers report having made an offer on a home before even setting foot on it. So people are kind of racing each other to see who can go through that three tour passes put an offer and fastest. So I think speed of the market is just accelerating. That sounds pretty reminiscent of the last frenzy we were having around home-buying, but I'm guessing this time around it might be because people aren't totally comfortable having a lot of people coming in and out of their houses right now. Yes both sellers and buyers are embracing technology. They don't want to have to go view the home in person times they'll just have one viewing or sometimes even zero viewings and they'll do a lot of their research online. So it's religious changing the way people are buying homes. I just cannot even imagine having an entirely electronic experience when you're dropping hundreds of thousands of dollars in one place that just seems a Little Bananas Daryl. That's. That doesn't that. That just seems crazy to me people are doing. What about people who can't afford to buy homes in Seattle right now what's happening to renters? So people who can't afford to buy in the city center there looking outside of the city they're looking at the suburbs or small towns even moving across the country because while homeownership is quite unaffordable on places like Seattle, you can get a lot more bang for your buck if you look in a more rural part of Washington or even in the center of the country and our A. Lot of people doing that because it seems like from the things that I'm hearing, you say location location location means different things right now because we are expecting different things from our environments. So then we track how many of our users are looking outside of their own metropolitan area, and that number had a record high last quarter of twenty seven percent. I've read from users looking outside the Metro. So that's been trying to the pandemic and it's probably going to continue especially as more employers. Say that they're going to let employees work for home or work remotely permanently.
Should You Offer a Lifetime Deal?
"WanNa. Start today's than by explaining why businesses consider offering lifetime deals. The bottom line is, is that lifetime he is often generate a large lump sum of revenue of cash. It's a cash grab really they might partner with a deal signed with large affiliates or they offer it to their list, and because such an incredible deal, it's a lifetime deal. They'll get lots of sales at the start people see this as a way. To Fund, their business at the star. So that's kind of the motivation behind lifetime deals outside of that. It also gives you new users, new customers, people to give you feedback the star and people that are invested. That's really the positives and and there's not really much outside of that. That's positive. Just being frank but for many people, that's a lot. You know making a lot of money at the start to fund the business. Can, really help them and really propel the business to avaiable full-time option for them and allow them to make some hires and scale quickly the issue is that most products and services have a running cost. So even if you say for example, sell a lifetime deal for a thousand dollars per customer yes. You'll earn a thousand dollars, but each customer will have a cost for each subsequent year to come. Agree. Thirty forty, fifty, sixty years for long as that person is alive right and some of us don't really do the math and that leads me to my I tip. You got to do the math. How much does it cost you per customer per year and a lot of people are like well, I sell my product it's course it's a forum it's something that really has a minimal cost on my end. And that's pretty much it. No you gotta dig deeper. You have cost Phantom costs that you're not counting like how much it cost you per customer for your web hosting to host your community to host your APP how much that cost on a monthly basis divided by the number of customers is cost more per customer. It's not a once in done kind of thing, the more traffic you have the more you have to pay what about customer support the more customers you have the more support staff you need the more time take from them you need. To factor that in, are there any other costs whether it's your time or money that's involved every time you have a customer, break it down because you might find out yes. This might be a very small amount per customer in it's worth to offer the lifetime deal but often more times than not when we do the math, you're like, wow, we start to break-even after five years and after five years we're losing money. Then after ten years, we're really losing money. So this really is a red flag that you can raise before you offer a lifetime deal. My next tip is you have to make sure that if you're going to offer a lifetime deal, you don't offer a deal or a plan or a product that they will not outgrow. The play of the lifetime deal is to give them something that is valuable, but is just to get them started. The point here is that get them onto your platform onto your product. And therefore get used to it. Love it enjoy it. But at some point, they're going to outgrow whether they need more contacts in your APP or the want to get access to more training. Basically, we're talking about here is you want to offer them the basic of basic plans. It's still valuable. It's still something that you would charge a monthly or annual basis for normally but. You, WanNa push them towards upgrading anytime. You're running a lifetime plan you should aim for seventy percent of the people that by will upgrade out of the lifetime plan. So lifetime is something that's basically temporary this takes a bit planning the six a bit of a branding and package INC when it comes to offering this lifetime deal so don't rush into a lifetime deal if. You're not ready. Make sure you're crafting the right one. So you know that people will be graduating to different plants off the lifetime. The third thing I want to mention is often in my experience lifetime customers in general, not all of them of course, but in general will tend to be difficult customers to deal with what you mean by that well, people that don't invest much. Will actually cost you more time and more headaches people that actually pay you a lot of money. They do the work that get the most out of it and they're professional they get it. They understand the onus is on them to make it happen. But those who pay the minimum and Gopher lifetime deals people that maybe don't really take action but they will complain about every little thing if they have the opportunity of course, I'm speaking in. Generalities of course, there are lifetime deal customers that are hard working that are serious about their business and they are great and they're not headaches. But if we're talking about a percentage or a majority of the users, higher paying customers are lower maintenance customers that's just the facts of business. So I want to give you some direct advice. If you do the math, you have a graduation plan a plan to get them to upgrade out a lifetime. And everything pans out and it's very, very minimal cost on you. Even if you stretch out of twenty thirty years of this customer being active, then go for the lifetime plan if not avoided if you can even if it means growing slower if you're still looking for that cash grab, my advice is limit the number of lifetime members whether it's one hundred or two hundred people Max and then you. Close it. This will create scarcity and it will also allow you to say, Hey, this is the amount of money I will get from this lifetime offer I can work with us the influx of cash I need, and from there you're only dealing with a minimal number of customers that are dealing with the lifetime planet you have to pay for for the longevity of your business in for their

They claim to be the all new audience growth tool for publishers and they say they can fill up jeff way. They say they can convert anonymous website visitors into names email addresses and even their home addresses boom. And I know sales sorted. posted. Another Chapter Jeff any incredibly they claim they can do surrounded by a third of all US web traffic cheese. Okay. Well, their claims earn press Whoa Kay, let's look a little bit more into this. They say that their services already been used you know that Chap Tucker Carlson on Fox News. Well he is one of the founders of a website quite right wing website surprise you it cooed the daily caller. That is one of the sites which is using exactly this technology right now, this potentially some could find out if your partial particular political views as well. Don't understand Outta sorry you've lost me. Okay. So how is the daily caller this website run by Tucker Carlson, taking advantage of this technology so they are a customer of this firm could get emails. Okay. Get emails is run by a guy called Adam. Robinson right is a former Lehman brothers employee and his girlfriend Helen Sharp. And they've actually put together a video where they explain how that thing works. He can go and check that out on Youtube link but I can explain in very simple. Work. So, there are lots of scammy kind of websites on the Internet surprise surprise. No, there are no a shock.

They don't read all the terms and conditions and remained the new mock me about every week when. You're one of the unusual people who actually does that crew, but those sites will gather all that information and not really set up to. So you health insurance in countries, they do sometimes or read you. But what they're really doing these crates and a huge database of people's contact details. Okay and they are then selling those two people and that is all apparently legal because people chose to give their information and they agreed to the terms and conditions to be marketed up soon, the I've always thought those sites you know like insurance compare sites or mortgage compare sites I. think that's exactly what a lot of them are doing. I think some of them are legitimate getting A. Lot of the deals, but they say we are sharing this with interested parties on purpose to get you the numbers you want right really have to share that information with third parties. They don't have to give you a list here. Exact people were doing because it's changing all the time and some of them might be you know very bonafide companies.

So he's very much a family and and then my brothers in Toronto he's an actress well, producer director and a creator and his what's in my brother's named Andrew and his wife's name is Tanna spelt the same way wow. So are they to ten meetings? There are two Chinese, and my partner's name is Andrew. Hang on. Boo. Hello. About two nieces over there in Toronto and then so my family here I've got a twelve year old girl named willow. And that's it. Excellent. Your twelve yard is just started year seven. Finishing. Because you've, you've got one on the way. Yes. I have just got a daughter in your six and we just had like the zoom. Deputy head. Of School and so we are just entering the kind of whole mine change. Our Periods come. Online David. It's really. Out of biggest the yeah I am too bracing myself because all the whole thing like she's been fairly hippie south London local primary school. Uniforms and all sorts of serious. Big. Thing. How's your first year being I mean it's been weird obviously and yes in a cupboard but. I have to say I'm one of the lucky parents in that. If she was a younger, I would have had to be dealing with homeschooling in an active way what I mean six actually the curriculum in your six is very hard for them. Obviously, it's straightforward because led up to it but if you're going to ask I mean I can't even do kind of long division. Wants me to help with something and I'm like. Well this is how I did today in nineteen. Seventy. Spending. Here's a calculator. By hand. And then it would have had to be way more hands on. Whereas the seven will I have found? It could just be a terrible ma'am. I do admit that. It could just be because I'm a very bad person but I basically done nothing. That sounds Dreamy I've done nothing. She's been in her room. Doing actual classes they have to sign in on zoom every morning at eight thirty, eight, forty, five. Yeah they do the full schedule of classes on say wow. And she has breaks they even do pe. She's got two room. She got my Yoga Mat. She's the whole Shebang but from home. And we still have the report cards and everything. So she's kept up. Wow and I just stood back and you can just like stop smoking the garden having been. Doing. I kissing by the garden shared. A room like she's. If you tips for the transition surviving the transition well I think I had to make sure I didn't get. Involved or helicopter around her social life because for me when I realized, it was that the most important thing is that socially she feels anchored. Yeah. All this concern about. This class that class her grades teaching did it, and actually at that stage is entirely secondary. It's about her making friends because that's the only thing for my daughter that she was concerned about. Her nerves came from. Will I make any friends because you didn't know anybody at hunters to to you know what I mean. And so I got on board with her to just focus on that and not be don't talk about. Other stuff. Parents would that we would get on the kiss in a twist about. The sleepless night. Yeah it's my business. So she'd be like, Oh, I want make Koshi. Will up he? Didn't. Give, confidence in the of the first day meeting and she went to school in the first week with a stinking cold. So she was a bit kind of glassy-eyed anyway she's patient zero. I think. It's nice. To know where we'd have. Yeah. So actually that was a bit of it ended up being a bit of an openness to meet some people could be sputtering away and go to are you? Okay she went no, I'm dying apparently made them laugh. You Bronte sisters.
#19 James Noll The Teacher Author Musician - burst 01
"Trying out short stories always your first story when you I mean not so much the first one that you can. Write maintenance sixteen and Seventeen I was reading science fiction I. there's a there's a story called repent Harlequin said the tiktok man by Harlan Ellison and it was in one of those you know world's greatest science fiction's nineteen, sixty, six, nineteen, Sixty, seven is a collection. And I would read those things back and forth I just loved them. I remember sitting in bed. Reading that story again but TIKTOK man story and I thought I could probably do something like this and And went downstairs and got on the Family Commodore Amiga. which had at that point had been just used for defender of the crown and there was you know a pre wordpress or not were pressed but a pre word program that we had on there and I sat down and wrote a story and it was a science fiction story it was absolutely horrible. It was something about trying to be. Satirical without even knowing satire was at that point is trying to be funny without really having a sense of irony or I had it but I didn't know how to portray it online on on the page. Yeah. and I. Remember. It took it took me a couple of hours and finished it. brought. To my girlfriend at the time I said, hey read this she looked at it. She read it kind of is like, what are you like you should keep trying? All right. At least you didn't say stop. Yeah Yeah exactly. Yeah. It was very nice her was there someone in your family because I mean getting into English and you're talking about some of the books that you read and then into writing? was there someone in your family that? Product you towards. Your joy for reading. Would you even define it as a joy for reading because absolute our devour books? Yep well, maybe not as fast as some people but yeah, I am constantly reading Yeah my mother she she got me into reading very very early I I. What I finally decoded everything figured it out. I, brought a stack of my. You know my doctor seuss books down to her while she was watching the. Cable Net. So I think and just started reading to her out loud and and from that point on there was always a there's always book around it was something that I could always retreat to I didn't know it at the time but just personality wise I'm fairly introverted doesn't mean that I don't like people just means I need to have some alone time and that's where I would get it. I could go home. I'd read a Stephen King Book Re. Short Stories I. Got Into. A. Clockwork. Orange. And all those dystopia novels and you could use that to kind of relax and recharge by between her and my brother. My brother was the one who also use like, Hey, you should read this your one flew over the CUCKOO's nest. Now here's a coke orange like I said, hey, did you get the new Stephen King? They would just feed me stuff and then you know there's All over the house and so I just had my pick I just walk around and you know. GonNa re I didn't know Stephen King wrote four books. You pick that one up and move on from there and then start developing your own tastes and and move on. I think you might mention of it. What was your first piece of writing that you handed into someone besides your girlfriend for a critique? That was junior year. and we're supposed to write a fictional story I ended up fictionalized event that. You know that we want to up at my mother's Relatives House up in Jersey and that crashed and burned really really. Well, it's. I was I was up against another kid in class meaning we we've been partners. and. He wrote this amazing piece of course and then and he wrote I of course to read his out loud and then I read mine and it was just frigates. Suddenly found in this as well But he you know go ahead go ahead. Well I. got the feedback that that at the time. I needed you know. Every writer when they go into writing for the first time especially that age you don't know what revision means you don't know really what constructive feedback means, and so that's that's what the teacher is trying to say look it's not going to be perfect. The first time this is a rough draft, and so you get the positive stuff in the negative stuff and you go back and Redo it and I I went back and wrote a different story instead because I was embarrassed and I didn't know how to you know handle that particular situation. But I I, I, put it through three or four drafts, and then my teacher was like, yeah, that's what I'm talking about it. That's that's how you do it, and so you learn from those particular situations. How is your your balance of confidence with your writing even though it needed Some revision is standing there in reading in front of your your classmates, the confidence. Could did you have a balanced with that because personally I remember my first year university might first communications class in my knees were shaking and I was scared forty people in the class I looked at my communication Susan. Shut up. Even. Though I had a paper here in front of me. How was your balance with that? Probably. Mighty pen. Yeah, exactly you know naked in front of the class. Yeah well, that's that's exactly I. I. Don't know if if my voice was shaking, my knees were knocking at that point I? Do Remember one of the things I was trying to make sound. Funny. Did Not come off as funny. and there is just silence and it was that the that feeling in the pit of your stomach in front of your, you know this is an advanced English class eleventh grade and. I was like Oh man I blew it. You know from that point on he's going to. And finishes. Waiting for you to be over. And there's been plenty of those moments too. Yeah exactly especially following the other guy who? It was he was I. think he ended up being the Valedictorian and just he just knew what he was doing at an early age You know. There wasn't any ever like any jealousy of my my half. I was just always like man he's so much better. But that takes humility right like just to say no. That guy's talented. Suppose just recognizing it. Yeah. Recognizing I mean acknowledged that wow, that guy's talented I have some ways to go. Yeah and Also. Just being a nice person but also I think. It wasn't a secret how good he was everybody knew that because he was he was killing across all of the subjects and it was just one of those things I have no idea where this guy came from it he's amazing. and I think he had transferred over freshman year so we didn't know. Nobody knew who why non horses exactly. Wow. You're awesome in everybody's Askar you. Just for you just to realize, okay, you gotta work on it a little bit more and then you'll succeed. Yeah that's why people like that exist. It's it's. A It's what gives you drive sometimes I. I gotta hit that level. So after university, what was your? What was your mission? I was a drummer and punk rock bands and we were touring up and down the east coast playing basements in bars and small clubs, and we recorded a whole bunch of albums and that was what we were trying to do. I did that for about three and a half four years? Yeah. Yeah Absolutely yeah. It in me see in. One of the band's had a few in there even though I did not play guitar if I got a base and I kind of plunked around and figure out what the notes were and showed it to the guys who knew better than me and we fashion. A song out of that, I could I could yell scream. Or sorry y'all sing. With some sort of melody in there, some sort of harmony. Another band was I started getting more confident. Now is a fifty percent songwriter with that group. and then you know, 'cause you hop around from band abandoning. You know they last a year or two so that there was another band you know those those I who were punk rock ish or just rock bands then got into like an old country band where I was a one third singing partner in writing partner. After that, I got kind of got tired of of writing and I just WANNA play drums. I played A. Backup not. WanNa sing right now I, just want to play drums. I'm already doing five things at once and adding in their six so. Let. Me just play drums but yeah, it was it was a Lotta Fun. How much will even bringing up the confidence level? How much was that good for you to be on stage? I mean. Did that add
What We Can Learn from a LOT of Blood Samples
"This episode, we're going to be talking to Tatyana for rude and Brooke pates about the Bio Bank. What is it? What does it do? How can we use it for research including COVID Research Brooke. Tatyana. Welcome, Brooke, can you tell us a little bit about yourself and what do you do? My name is Brooke pay I manage the operations of the. INDIANA. By obey can have been doing that for about seven years now. So all of our intake of samples are recruitment of subjects. That is all falls under what I do. Well, how did you get to this? What training via have? What did you go to school for degree to get what? What do you do to get this job? I have an undergraduate degree. Degree from Butler University in Biology, but always liked the ethical issues related to the technology of the science. So that landed me in the Masters Program at Iu, I have a masters in bioethics after I graduated. I. Took a position with a bio. Bay That was a nonprofit startup by obey associated with are you and then several years into that role the company. Became more associated with you and I began working for Tatyana Tatiana. You've been on the program before, but for those who might have missed that episode and they should definitely go back injured anyway, you tell us a little bit about yourself, your training of what you do, of course. So many Tatyana, food, I am the chair of the Department of medical and molecular genetics and. And I'm also now the director of the Indian Bio Bank. So I got here through have an undergraduate degree in biology and math I did that in Connecticut at a small liberal arts. College called Fairfield. University. And then I got a master's degree in something called bio mathematics put those two things together. I did that at Ucla and then I got my PhD. In Indiana University and loved it loved what I did and just stayed and never left. So I've been on the faculty now for over twenty five years. So let's strong with just the basics. What what is a bio bank? So I can start with that. So if you take the word apart bio meaning anything biological and Bank we all think of a bank is a place. You put your money. This is a case where this is a place where you put specimens or biological material. So if it was just Just Bank of biological material I. Mean it has some value, but it's really valuable when you link it to information about the individual from whom you got that biological sample. Typically, we do this for all kinds of diseases, but we're going to talk today about in particular people who were Kovic positive and it lets us ask questions about, for example, why did some people die? Why did some people improve after being in the hospital? Why did some people never end up in the hospital? Why do some people have long term complications? Complications and others not and this marrying of biological samples and clinical information lest you ask those questions. So it's a a bio bank I have so many questions about the logistics about it. So what what kind of samples first of do you take an house? One of the things that's really easy to be able to obtain relatively easy is a blood sample. So if you think about a people go to a doctor's office, you get kind of blood drawn for lots of different reasons. So it's a relatively relatively easy thing to. To, be able to collect, but there's lots of different things you can obtain an study from a blood sample. So one of the things that you can obtain from a blood sample is DNA. So that's our cinetic material allows us to ask all kinds of things about genetic people use the word genetic predisposition. Why do some people develop disease and you ask about changes DNA that might contribute to that? If you take that blood sample now and also do some other things to it. So for example, if you're able to. Literally spin a sample you to spin it in a machine that spins it really fast. You can actually get the blood to separate and it comes into these different parts of the blood. One of the things we study is something called plasma. So plasma and and kind of a partner to it, which is serum are really valuable because you can measure things called proteins in and proteins are things that our body has. A lot of people have been talking about like. Like, antibodies and things like that. You can measure antibodies, which lots of US have been hearing about in plasma and serum. So we collect that from individuals that are in the Bio Bay something else that we collect is something called Arnie. Now aren a simply tells us how much of a protein we make. So week study thing called expression, how much do we express it and so some of the things that can be important is if we make a lot. Lot of something or less of it, and could that be controlled by something, for example, in our DNA, those are things that some of the things that we study in our blood. The other thing that we've been studying particularly around cove it is we can take that blood sample and we can actually sort the different kinds of cells that we have in our blood. It's kind of amazing and we can collect one particular one called a Mon- and lots of people. People want to study the different components of our blood because we can also ask do we have more or less of them? Is that affected? For example, by having certain diseases, what it is that those products are able to make. So we've been studying that and the other thing that we've been collecting is not anything related to blood. So we've also been trying to collect urine from individuals who have had covert to try to understand what we can measure. Measure in the urine that might help us understand why some people are having kidney complications and some people are not.
Dr. Howard Fullman: COVID, Probiotics, and the Impact of Coronavirus on the Future of Medicine
"We're honored to have. Dr Howard J foam and join us to catch up on medicine, practice and politics prevention, and of course a bit about our fight against. COVID nineteen so may we suggest that you pull yourself a double. Sit back and join us on medicine. We're still practicing I'm bill, Curtis. I are host. The quadruple board certified doctor of Internal Medicine Pulmonary Disease Critical Care and neuro critical care. My very good friend Dr Steven Taback, however you, Steve Hey bill good to see you. We haven't had dinner together for a while I. Don't remember what it was like. They actually have dinner and enjoy an evening. So you know we have one of our favorite experts rejoining. Rejoining us today Dr, Howard J. Felman he is board certified in internal medicine and gastroenterology will learn more about that. In a minute Howard, served a multi decade tenure at Kaiser Permanente Day as partner board member. President of the Executive Committee Chief of staff and chair of the Quality Committee. He supervised forty three hundred staff over five hundred doctors. Howard is now senior operating advisor. Advisor at the Atlantic. Street capital for their medically focused investments Dr Howard J foam. Welcome back I nice to be here. Stephen nicest to us well Hey Howard. Good to see you so last time we met in our studio in Malibu was only back in February and it seems like a whole lifetime ago in quite a year, and we're only halfway through it and we know. Know there's a lot more to come Howard. I hope you'll forgive me, but I took my nasty pill this morning, so I want to dive into a difficult issue, but as the time of this recording according to Johns Hopkins, Japan although infected early has less than one cova death per hundred thousand population, while the US has thirty nine Cova deaths per one hundred thousand population. Japan more elderly per capita than any other country. They kept their borders open during the Wu Han locked down there, stay home requests by Japanese. Government have been voluntary, as was any of the closing of their non essential businesses. And now for a country with one city that houses more than thirty seven million people. They have less than a thousand deaths countrywide, but the hell is going on I. Don't know that anyone knows exactly all of the differences, but I'll give you. Some and I think that may be different. One is there's probably a genetic component to this disease that we don't quite understand. People were speculating. Why was so much more Italy because Italian get together a lot more than others people wonder with net net might have been some genetic predisposition. She decided kind storms for example, another article morbidity in patient population, so age is one thing you're right. Japanese population is actually older than the US. By other commodities like obesity, which is turning out to be a significant risk factor here is unfortunately. It's still a lot more obesity united. States than there is Japan so just because we've sorted out that the age factor may not explain it, but we have some more chronic illness in the United States spend maybe contributing to it as well and then you know the way we've handled. Handled the public health aspect of this and again I also wanted to be very careful about criticism of even the public health system because I'm sure there's a lot of things we look back and could have done differently, but we also have a lot of public health officers. Some extremely courageous ones and I'll say that I think unfortunately a some of our public does not really believe. Believe in this pandemic, the seriousness that they should, and that may be affecting the outcomes as well. There are certain communities as you know. Where substantial numbers of people were having just seemingly significant disregard, and so that might have been large numbers coming in at a just a bowl of people coming in all the ones that saturated the healthcare system made it hard to take care of. Of someone people possibly people coming in later than they should have because perhaps denial about the significance of the Selma's when it is on severe, and it's not be causing a doctor that I. don't WanNa Fault. The nurses and the doctors and rest of just I've seen what they're doing. My follow it very carefully, and I'm very proud of them, but I think because of the. The differences in population and our public health system is not working well is not resigned the way it should be, and there's not functioning in the way that it has been planned to function the

"If you're not if you're not Joe Rogan. Like a good example is I'm I'm not sure how familiar you are with the tech system, but there's a guy named. Ben Thompson writes a daily newsletter culture tech ARY, which is a scam and service and and he kind of does deep dives into the tech space. Each day and people pay on a monthly basis to have access to his email newsletter. It's hard work to put out insightful content that people are willing to pay for every single day. So you really need to be able to provide a lot of value if you're not an alias talent and and I think that's kind of you know. An issue that you get into with a lot of these athletes is. They're not committed to putting out content that you're willing to pay for every day, so they need to be. You know Michael Jordan to draw that kind of audience. You know to be able to do it on an ad-supported basis, and even if you're doing it on expert basis, you gotta be willing to. Commit the time and efforts into into putting the content out and. As, we know retired athletes. A lot of them aren't aren't motivated because they're financially well off to to invest all their time and resources and building media company, so I'm not sure that you're going to see a ton of this athlete side, and it may be why the the company that you're talking about in the UK hasn't particularly gotten off the ground on the media side. It makes a little bit more sense because these guys are putting out content every day. The question is. Can you put enough confidence of of value to be able to to get people to pay for in? Getting back to kind of the quote. That John Kosner said is bundling them together the. There's much more value in obviously you know when you can increase the value. Your chances of getting somebody to pay for. It is better so I think this is certainly a trend. You're going to see on the media side particularly as a television budget's tight. You know the economy's in tank at presumably can be less advertisers spend even although on the sports side I'm not sure that's necessarily the case because it is the one kind of you know area. Or the one vertical that still commands huge numbers. Of Audience Remember. Or might even sure if you're aware, but Hollywood is shooting right now. So it's not like new avatars. You know primetime content to begin with the fall so. you know if you're an advertiser and you need to reach the masses. You know you're selling a new car or something. sports is really the only place to go, and so I'm not sure that this. You know how how how? Far Off, you know budgets are GonNa get slash on the sports side, but I can certainly see top talent facing pay reductions, says hey, listen you know for all the work. I'm doing for network. Television, an audio and you know blogging and Blah Blah Blah I go and do this on my own for more money. And that's certainly what a guy like Simmons did in. An his kind of set a roadmap where it is certainly viable model to go out on your own. If you have you know kind of following and the bill that.

These real talents don't need the network to be promoting them. They can push their content. They can promote themselves and if they can do that might as well try to collect you know all the revenues and. An Monaco's of the best they can and guys like Simmons. and. Rogan, who built tremendous podcast? Followings have have been able to parlay that into some big contracts. It's interesting. In the middle. San The sports illustrated the future might be a collective of the most influential voices each with their own digital subscription service. You could make more money package together. They could if they were each standalone. Quite. You know that's that's. An idea again it's been around a while. You know tons of the long tail, but we're starting to see people really take it seriously and make big bets now. You mentioned spotify. In and around podcasts, which is relatively controversial, but Let's. They does it when you push this the the athletes. We only really seen this happening once they retired. We're not seeing it particularly in during their peak years. That's why some of the the sort of. Arguments in an people hovering around blockchain and Bitcoin, and Crypto is quite interesting sort of. Because this seems to open up an avenue because they can then start to deal with their audience directly in a way that they've never really been able to. Before the reason that so here's the thing in in theory, you would say yes. An athlete could just launched their own channel and monetize it. The problem with the issue is that you really need to be a-list. Most, saying I'm not to watch it by the way just I had the opportunity. Is there I think that's? The issue is that. It's not as easy as one with think, and there's probably not a ton of people that can build their own media company as a standalone because you need to be a list and you need well. Let me rephrase that you either need to be a-list or need to be able to provide a ton of value. If you're a-list. Presumably like a Joe Rogan, you can get enough of an audience that you can get some ads sponsorship dollars right..

"Just kind of talk about all the time and people ask me you know why. John Wall Street has become kind of. Viable and I think a large portion of it just has to do with the fact that. In the mid I mean literally in the mid to thousands you could buy. An NBA team or a major baseball team for a few hundred million dollars. In Oh they were. They were micro cap companies at best. Now you? You can't. You can't get a team for less than a billion, and there's a lot of them that are closer to two billion, so these have become real businesses in businesses gotten smarter. And so, that's certainly a trend obviously corona viruses kind of only expedited, because budgets are being cut in budgets are being cut writing the checks WanNa. Know where the money's going and what the returns are GonNa be so You're seeing this trend towards more about transparency, accountability and. You know what was kind of interesting about the the man about the about the Liverpool Nike deal. Is that they? part of that accountability to onfield performance, which makes a lot of sense because when teams are performing well, there's more interest this more people in the stands. There's more people on watching on television you know and. And thus ability to activate the sponsorship is better, so there's more value in it. Yeah, I mean I think that what's interesting is like. I said that they're using wins and losses as a metric. Not the only metric certainly, but a metric to to. To value today these sponsorships because when teams are losing, and and they're the the kind of the bottom of the standings, and people aren't watching these obviously not all as much value in it for the sponsor, and and they don't want to be paying. You know kind of full boat for it at that point, and so you know philosophically, I, think it makes a lot of sense. And I and I think it's interesting trend that we're starting to see Budweiser anheuser busch..

"What makes this so different is that they're in multiple markets you know but Ted owns three teams in the same market and so you know it's the same audience and the same demographics. If you believe that you know kind of content on the digital side is going that avocado carts. There's there's been this whole debate in kind of gets back to what I was talking about the regional sports networks. There's been questions about whether or not. We're seeing subscribers decline on the on the on the linear bundle side. Right like we're down from you know I. Don't Know Lake think it's like eighty million cable subs now is the number and so at and let's say like drops down to fifty million Well, then people need to make up the other thirty million on the digital side Some of those will be made up in digital bundles. Kind of be like a redoing of digital asset, some digital side, but I, think there's some people who think that there's GonNa be Allah heart offering to If if all you want is ESPN net. Maybe you pay forty dollars to just have ESPN as opposed to paying fifty dollars for one hundred channels, ninety nine of which you don't watch I think that makes a lot of sense and I. think that as long as you don't. As long as you don't blow up the bundle the value in the bundle, you can do that so what they're talking about on a regional sports network basis. Is is interesting because if you think that were moving towards the direction where? Content is going to be sold on an alicarte basis on the digital side. Being one market has a lot of overlap. That's not necessarily good for volume. If you buy multiple markets, you're now able to tap into twice as many subscribers or whatever the percentage is a significant number of subscribers. Which is which is you know? Obviously what would help you sell a hell lot more? Individual cart digital subs, so just A. I'm not sure if the trend is going to be across market, but I think just generally speaking there is there is interest in you know. It's not particularly uncommon in the US. To See team owners, old properties across multiple. Leagues. There is just a finish that off though there is a fantastic quote in that in that piece of. I think I'm engineer on twitter's Chris. Bevilacqua. HIS IS A. The belief that sports remain a must carry on the cable bundle, and the bundle will re bundle itself on the digital side. That is just tremendous bundling A lot of bundling going on, but I think that you know we're seeing that. The. The Bundle continues to hold value I mean. You See. It's just impossible for anybody or not impossible, but it doesn't make economic sense for everybody to have you know peacock in HBO now and Hulu, and all these other services you would need to cobble together. The same hundred channels you had on the cable bundles sought. Right. Next story is the. Liverpool Nike. Deal so you've got a story on your today's.

"A team thing I P L and a Hampshire Club at a county club over here and Shane warms involved, and it was it was. It didn't really move anywhere, but you could see the the idea. was there there this little bit of long tired and a bit of. In bundling together. Various sort of fan bases. You think that that's an aspiration. The more broadly held you think this doesn't isn't just popped out of anywhere as it. Yeah, I'm just wondering. There's an American angle to this. Which I probably don't understand which is that regional sports network bit because we don't really have in the same way over here. Yes so. Regional sports networks in a kind of very much. Drive the cable bundle here in the US. A lot of people subscribe to television because they're. They're regional sports networks in four their teams in there, some of the the most expensive channels in the cable bundle so. They've kind of bundled together here. and so cobbling together. You know how? Confident. And maintaining the value on those regional sports networks is important for your for maintaining carriage. Yeah in terms of just. In terms of The trend of of. I refer to them as kind of platform businesses. The city football group is a little bit different. They're more of like a roll up of soccer franchises across the globe and there's actually. There's actually somebody here in the US Jody gross who is trying to put something similar together although there's there's some questions about whether or not, he has the money to do that and some other concerns, but the I had a conversation with Ted Leonsis probably about six months ago. Ted Is the owner of the Washington capitals in the Washington Wizards in Washington mystics and an Ted's belief was that. Platform businesses. Where you have the infrastructure in place to kind of plug and play teams you know in terms of advertisers in terms of you know a meteorites partner in terms of an all these things that kind of drive the business. If you have it all in place, you can kind of plug teams on and together. The value of them is worth more than than any one individual, because they're all able to Kinda draft off each other. and. Kind of push the business forward. So yeah I, mean I think that the idea of being able to to have a platform model is is certainly valuable in Ted makes the case that you know. These platform businesses are are not valued. The same way as a technology company would Technology Platform Company would and and they should be an. It's an interesting article. I can send it to you. But I do think that yeah I mean there's a lot of synergies when you own pro sports team, so it makes sense if you can if you can cobble a couple of together The..

There's a town that's going to.

Yeah, we might have to wear masks, but like I don't think the Zun conference business is like the. I don't think we were having like a huge industry shift here. I'm trotted you Harris Blitzer there a sort of that's an entity that I sort of have heard of and don't know much about, but I noticed that they also own the Philadelphia Seventy Sixers New Jersey devils and Crystal Palace through.

You've made the conference market is. Obviously a strange time in a worrying time for for. All conferences and not just in this sector, but it's quite interesting seeing how. How they're innovating, and you know somethings working some arm I'm not huge fan of sort of zoom. Panel type thing I share your misgivings about the sort of calm. A lot of the conference experience I do go to a few, and it's always just to meet people I like going and meeting people in the whole in the in the bars I'm I'm less enamored with is quite difficult to get people to sort of talk. Honestly I think it might be impossible actually to just to talk. Honestly you know on a on a panel because it's such a performance element to it and you have to then, and they're wearing a badge and they have to play that game. Blame them individually, but it's quite difficult to to engineer interesting conversation, but there is a sort of. Feels like there's a space between zoom and S and television. You know there's there's something that leaders did a really interesting thing. Couple of weeks ago that he the new. York, Conference and that felt like this is. This is moving in that direction. It feels like there's a there's A. There's something going on which. Might evolve because getting people into hoes like the good old days. He's going to be going to be slow. Going is going to be going to be difficult. But it feels like there's some technology will help, but it's gotta be better than sort of a of a zoom panel, which is pretty hard to. Justify, the best of times and you know when everyone's busy or or worrying about what you think. Yeah I'm with you. I think Zoomed for me, I, attend these conferences from the same purpose that you do is to meet people. If you take the premise that most of the people are there to meet people you can understand why we think that there's an opportunity kind of at the top end. If you get all the decision makers together, there's value in. It is not a lot of value in it for them. When most of the people at the conference or you know looking for better jobs or looking for jobs, which is kind of the case, Y, you don't have. Kinda owners ending these conferences as we speak, I'm with you I. think that the technology is great. It's nice to have the zoom conferences and to be able share ideas, but everything is very surface level, and you don't have the opportunity to do that..

I said to the guy I said you know. What are you guys doing with all those equity research reports, and basically it's recognizance They're looking for ideas. They're looking for trends with their competitors are doing. They're looking to see where the industry is moving and so yeah, they're not buying public equities, but they are at very closely following the market, and and following companies you know that impact, their businesses, and so you know for where I was in technology media and telecom. You know obviously media. A meteorites are a large portion of the of the business, and so now in following those companies is important for for teams in Leagues So, let's let's jump off there and I. Just wanted to be interesting to just look a couple of the stories. I thought we'd just bounce off. Some of you'll recent. Out, the on the median meteorites cy, we've got this. The Harris Blitzer story about. Is Potential I sort of super regional sports network another. This is a story that was broken by you. May Scott Nick, who we should talk about Scott. A bit should wait we Shaka's. You've got a relationship that we spoke. Oh what Scott is building. Yeah, so you know Scott Scott Night Actually We run in the same kind of Joe Fouled Circle, so we've known each other for a long time and we probably I had a conversation. I knew Scott was trying to build what ended up becoming sport ago at least two years ago. And the idea basically was that. There's a lot of people serving kind of in the middle of the sports business ecosystem. If you will the middle and low end and low end, I consider you know people that are in school and looking to break into the industry The fat middle is kind of you know all of your sales and marketing professionals and. People kind of doing the day to day work, but not necessarily making the decisions. And then you have that really high end audience team owners and network heads and agency heads, and the people that are really the movers and shakers, and there's just not a lot of of of outlets that are speaking to that audience in providing value for the audience I always use the example of like like the conference business, which has become pretty robust in the sports business space..

Analysis on publicly traded stocks, and so I was working for TM teashop, which means technology media and telecom, and we were Evalu- shop so a large portion. What we were doing was or or majority what we were doing was trying to identify stocks that were intrinsically undervalued relative to the price they were trading at. And I had thought that there was an opportunity to kind of if if I could give people something they wanted to read every day. It would eventually read one of these forty or fifty page reports, and then they would see how good it was in that they they should be buying our product so. That was the initial concept. Kevin Duino the example I always give is Kevin. Durant tore his Achilles inquired to Kevin Durant tearing this aquiles, there was a lot of talk in the New York market that durant was gonNA come in play for the Knicks, if came in played for the Knicks theory was that. You know television viewership. A Madison Square Garden Network would increase dramatically, and they would be able to obviously increase their advertising dollars and You know so. There was a lot of anticipation excitement that the stock would increase in value. If Trent were to come, so it had kind of been bought up and then Alan durant towards Achilles and it became obvious that he wasn't going to be. Be Coming to the New York market, the stock dropped by eight or nine percent, and so the basic idea is I, could tie those two things together, the stock, dropping and Durant, getting injured, and Oh, by the way if you WANNA learn more about Madison Square Garden, networks, we have this great forty or fifty page report on the company. That was the original premise for John Wall Street. and. What happened, was that really early on I linked up with a guy named Joe Fabrizio Who You you, you know I I I haven't known Jim the other day. We'll have rather. He spoke to me. He's a great talker. His Joe is just for those who aren't aware of Joe. He puts out a weekly newsletter. Joe's kind of an old school pr guy. He ran calm for the Knicks in the nineties and two thousands and he's kind of referred to him as Kevin Bacon of the sports business industry. He's kind of at the center of it and has connections to everybody in everybody kind of knows who he is, and so really early on I linked up with JOE and. He made some introductions for me I started to kind of build this high profile audience. But not necessarily the audience that was buying publicly traded equities, and certainly not the institutional investor.

Love that and then Chores I gave her some little chores that she could do by cleaning up her room that she was staying in the guest bedroom up in the kitchen after cooking things and I just feel like really keeping the balance or the technology after hours so like after dark or after after there was nothing else that we could come up with at that made any sense trust and believe we played on. Tick Tock so much fun. Oh my gosh. We had a great time. Laughed and giggled was silly with ourselves. You know what I'm saying. Sometimes it involves everybody. Sometimes it involves just one on one and that's totally fine by keeping the balance with with the technology was. I felt very important just knowing that we are in the same house making that connection to be isolated in a room while they're you know hours and hours on youtube videos or watching TV or cartoons I- encouraging you guys to be balanced so there were times where we had to separate or wanted to separate because we had been spending so much time together and we just want to keep it balanced so we were able to do that. So hopefully those tips with the preteen. Help you guys again. We got into some cooking shows on Youtube. We watched a little bit of a scroll through the pinterest ideas for cooking ideas as well. That was a lot of fun and then just keep in mind too. You know being able to stick with the schedule. She woke up every morning. We made our beds. We went and worked out. We did a little breakfast eating realistically. Why Win we right? I mean why not just because I have eleven year old in the house doesn't mean that I'm not gonNA try to keep up with the balance so that was the idea behind that we really wanted to keep up with the balance and I think we did very well. This change episode really is hopefully giving you some tips and some helpful ideas on how to handle change. It's constant that is one thing for sure we know that change is constant and we know that when we get in the mindset of a positive change. Hey it's not so bad but right now when it's a mindset of we're being told what to do we're not necessarily comfortable with everything. We're not really sure what's happening.

"Difficult to reach this audience and certainly the rights that you get with traditional sport arden not really direct channels to the audience. We again find brand. Let's let's do it that way. So think of me on a sort of rakishly attractive automatic late forties and ORANA. Cmo over its category. Well what what what do I? What will be a category? I would be Bangka car or automobile. WanNa something that's two hundred okay so significantly versus traditional on worried that you're going to hire a your basically employees Bush's who are getting a gun do their own call deals right your paying you and your gang giving it to okay all right so this had so versus versus traditional versus alternatives. You're from a sponsor so what else do you sponsor so we're going to be better reaches you and again I should. I should have said our current lineup of of creators are going to be an event. Looks like it will have an advocate of a hundred million followers so if you add up all their followers it looks like it's going to reach a hundred people say that is a big audience. That's the collective corrects collective reach all of the cruelty hours about two and a half. Minute is a huge rich and we already know that they are going to be engaged in our audience in ways that British shows. That's so impression. Yeah we listen we made of. Yeah we we've we made assumptions of but we also know that for example there averaging we know what their average engagement rates are and you know if if the content performs like their other content reforms we can have a good. We can make good assumptions. About what the actual number of impressions would be national reviewers me. Okay all right so first we're GONNA be better results right and secondly we're going to be that whole freedom of continental system is way more liberal right. So if you're W we also say by the way have all of our content as well right so bring your own crew us. Russia's put it on your social channels. Do whatever you want with the content using your adverts like literally. There's going to be anything that we're going to say you can do with our content. So it's like in a Olympic type deal. You know the saying to coke. Yes sure broadcast one hundred meter. Finals live on on twitter right. So there's there's way more content that you get right and there's there's better access to these elites now versus influence or marketing right. Which of course is growing very fast as a channel. It's growing the channel. It's unsatisfactory for a few reasons. Right and again. I think that we can help. Address those reasons so the first one is influence Scalable it's kind of. It's hard to do. You have to identify them and you have to. You have to kind of contract them. It's like learning the cat stuff. I looked kind of rather stick an accident. So that Kinda gets sold for you because you'd have to do any of that stuff it's all. It's all done centrally last. But the biggest problem is that influence remarking at the moment is very analogous to advertising right. The the transactions very parents right so. You're BMW. You pay influence our creator to say something nicely to drive the car and say something about the car and everyone kind of knows what's happened in paid off you're being paid and it's fine people kind of accept that because that's part of the game right and I think it's cool they do but also there's usually a performance tax so the content doesn't usually perform as well because of the of the Brazzaville. Now what we're doing or what we're able to do is we can turn that into something. Which is a lot more like product placement in film so the way we think about our partnerships is the browns and the products that we bring on. Boorda's partners are part of the event. Our partner station the right so. I'm going to check out some name so if you are brad managed to this names and I'm just using you guys example please as BMW before so. It's an area forty seven. They need to drive visitors. It's in to roll who've got a big challenge in terms of you know you could choose to go skiing anyway. Let's -CHUSETTS CONTROL ARL to get on Terrell when they're they're they're all gonna be driving around and BMW is series. Cars are going to be wearing addy clothing. They're all gonna be filming their content. Go PROS OR OUGHT TO BE WEARING. Bows frames in both headset or headphones. They're going to be drinking red bull and they're like. It's very easy to see how you can integrate products into the experience. Integrate brand promises experience right and the exciting thing is that means that the brands are going to show up in this influence or content in a completely authentic way because that's not the narrative. The narrative is their participation in Africa for right and it just happens that there are you know Africa. Or He's at forty seven hundred out somehow so they're getting around on on your end BMW. I three so there's a there's it becomes promptly fell. It's a way more authentic way of showing up and influence or content right and it's a million times cheaper but unless they have got a call yes so now. Let's talk about now. Let's talk about the way the Rights GonNa work. Okay which is. It's not easy to set this up in. This is the question I got all the time. So here's how it's GonNa work and influence her creator. Sorry I should stop saying for confused audiences. When I'm speaking to people in Tuxedos I say I should say not because great reverence which may have forecast and we all get into an awards free walking. Yes ever knows what they know. So okay. Sorry yes yes so eight creative can bring any brand this this particular party that they have an existing with okay so I if they can bring it so if they have a deal with Mercedes and BMW's our partner. We have a decision. Do we invite them and all right like we don't have to invite them. It's not like we want to work with the right freighters and we're going to be w say there's this creator. He's awesome the promise he's gotTa deal with BMW. He's got to do with Mercedes. What do you think they might say? No don't invite them and say okay because the reality is our four million creators on this planet and we're looking for forty right so we have complete control over. Who might so if someone has an existing brand here in place then. It's only right that they can bring that brand to the party if we've decided to invite them right it's also a reason why brand partners should sign up sooner rather than later because the sooner they signed the sooner. They signed up the The more control they have over the creatively and also a creator is free to bring any brand who doesn't conflict with one of our official partners right so the only restrictions on brand deals creators can do are basically new deals with brands that compete with are facing so if both partners they basically can't go out and do a deal with beats to push right but that's fair enough because we're not avenue partners that many partners and how many categories are there and how many bronze or how many creators have long-term deals with bronze. I think there'll be a couple of categories of that that that that becomes interesting conversation so they'll be the the the your corporate partners have the ability to shape the editorial correct correct by by selecting a diesel yet and listen we did I as I said. We've invited if we're inviting creative despite now if someone signed up and they're with beats and Bo signs up in two or three weeks time and and says we're not how sorry we invited them within they're gonNA be they're gonNA come but also this is going to be another another one of my pet peeves and they're going to be a brand. Hopefully there's enough brand. People are listening to this. They're going to be sort of cost spluttering in their superior. I think the whole thing about exclusivity is over is overplayed as well. I think branch really relaxed about it. I mean let me let me. Just I'll just keep using those beaches example. The reality is Bose and beats our next to each other everywhere right there next to each other on the shelves of the store you go in the tube you see people are in both beats you look.
