Is Patrick Schwarzenegger? We're GONNA catch up with him today. He's been on on a couple of episodes in the past but each year at the Arnold which we said last time we'd catch up and see how he's doing. So Patrick Welcome to the show. Thanks for having me man. I Miss Johnny boy. I Know Ray he always brings craziness out out the side too. So yeah we miss having John Man It's been wild since Johnny moved to South Carolina. We'll try to get get together and do things like this just with the schedule. I was like man is like I'll jump on. Get some good vibes. Get Patrick on here. And he's like I know missing but go ahead G. given do it but makes you push on them and make sure he's got an absolutely so first off. We're going to talk about the elephant in the room slash virus in the room. It's like Your Dad's dealing with this thing at the Arnold classic so just talk about that for a couple of minutes on kind of what that experience has been like. Yeah I mean this is just like you kind of set on a to me on on twitter. I think you said you've been coming since ninety nine right. I can't remember a year in my life. I haven't been coming right your whole land. It's my whole life. Yes it's one of the weekends I look most forward towards sure This is literally where I got. My my learned. Everything about business was coming to this story. Shirt Memorabilia booth for charity in. That's a That's exactly where I learned everything from wholesale to retail. How do you mark? What what's the MARKUPS? How do you do printing the print and getting the stuff in from China and everything like that so it was It's always been like one of my my favorite weekends and You know seeing people like you catching up with people that I see every year here So I mean there's there's there's definitely often in the room. It's definitely a weird year. This year's odd without the expo does vary. I mean it's it's extremely odd. You have two hundred thousand people less this year than fifty last year fifty million. I heard two fifty-five we'll we'll see how much revenue there isn't stuff. 'cause PEO- still ended up. I was talking to the hotel. And they were like people still ended up just coming in and now some people are going to the actual competition. Sure the strong men always brings out a great vibe and people still want to see that and Of course it's it's weird for for me from my dad for our family but it's also really weird you have to think of it from the retail side businesses And you know this is where they get a lot of exposure to a lot of different potential fans potential customers action potential retail exposure. So it's You know more than anything. I think. My Dad's upset about that and just kind of sat overall about that You know he's not in it for the money he always said and he said the other day in the press conference. It's to him the matter of you know making money you're making millions or whatever. It is way less important than the overall idea of health and especially since. This is a health and fitness expo. Competition that it wouldn't make sense to try to force something especially if the governor and the and the political side is saying you know no. You can't no not worth it to really try to push that just to make you know now the money and stuff but It's definitely weird. We'll see tonight. I think tonight's going to be a great Experience like I said. They sold this the the competition months and months in advance which was the first time. I think we have a great lineup. Tonight and You know I think it's you always have to look at the positive side. We still get to come to Columbus. We still get to You know showcase bodybuilding. Give them their biggest prizes that they deserve all year. Those guys still got to compete. Yeah exactly and that would have been. I mean that would have been a massive impact in detrimental because you know. The bodybuilding rolled has exploded and changed since my dad was a bodybuilder. You know they're still not making the millions and millions in cash prizes that these other sport players are and The Arnold is one of their largest purse prizes. So this is a massive event for for all of those guys at spend months and months and months of training in dieting. The only show they do yes because you imagine doing that and then if I mean I knew your dad was going to step up. There's no way he was GonNa not pay the prize money or go through rat but that could have been a real possibility. Yeah no for sure and and I think my dad's you know when we had our meeting yesterday. It's all about like how do we keep this the integrity of the Arnold Classic and and the Expo and everything and how do we make sure that these competitors that have spent blood sweat tears every day for the last month and stuff are still getting their Their support from the fans their recognition that they deserve their cash. Prizes deserve same with the strong men and You know now it's the question of how do we make sure that these small businesses get get You know get back in and find ways to help them in the future and See it's definitely a learning experience. Yeah for sure. All right so man professionally. You've had awesome year. I mean look. I'm a bystander. I'm watching on I. G. M. Hit hit you with text every now again but first off. I'm a little jealous. Calvin Klein Polo. I'm like man. This is really get it right now. Talk about being able to work with iconic brands like Tom. Yeah like look everyone who's had muscles or try to be an APP like as wanted to work with these brand right so for you. That HAS TO BE SURREAL. An amazing it. Ha- it it. It has been The Calvin Klein campaign was something that was on my my dream. List love You know it was the gene campaign which is no big deal. I know you get paid to make out with a girl was it was well worth it to work with someone like that. It's just it's an amazing brand You know it's a. It's a great actor for myself but You know hopefully one day. We'll do the underwear campaign. I'll come train with you would be amazing and get me all ripped up that that campaign almost didn't happen. It was so close to falling apart. I was in Poland filming. I was in. I was in Dubai and I had to go from Dubai all the way back to La then to pull in imagine that flight we shot. No we shot. I was filming a movie land. Then when we were in Poland I was filming there for a week. And the Calvin Klein campaign was getting switched dates and I still was filming in Poland and they needed me the next morning over in New York and thank God for the people in in in Poland that they ended up doing extended shoots. We shot me throughout the night. I didn't sleep. I went right to the plane. Went right to set in New York and film. That's I went from Dubai to La to Poland to New York back to La all within a few days but again it was one of those things where it was like I. I wasn't even focused on the lack of sleep or not. He got tired on that. It was like the end goal of getting this thing done and I mean it was. It was awesome. But that was yeah. That was one of the many highlights of this year. The businesses have been going great. The acting and the kind of film world has been great. I filmed three new projects this last year. I just wrapped on any colours netflix movie which was An amazing experience so everything is has been Going Great Yeah talked to me about the angel investing. I know that's something you love. It's yeah there's companies doing really well right. Yeah Super Coffee Brands. Doing Great Super Coffee Shop to those talked about them last year on the on the podcast and yeah give me an update on. What a You know unusual experience. It is with them. Having three brothers run the company and just Probably the most competitive three guys that I know which I love but I mean they're they're exploding. I mean they went up like over six hundred percent this year. They're just in so many doors and They just launched a product with cure egg in doing super coffee pods now And they're launching their vegan line for you know for us west coast kids But they're they're exploding. I mean they're doing massive numbers in. I'm really proud of them but You know that kind of goes back to some of your audience. That's listening that might have that idea to start that business. That might have that idea to drop out of school to pursue that passion or go to school. You know to develop that passion these guys you know. They started out of their dorm room at school. They were on shark tank. They didn't get any money and that's when I hit them up and and I said I'm going to give you some money. I believe in your mission and what. You guys are promoting and It wasn't even so much with the product who was just these three guys were just you saw them on. Tv and was like. How did these guys not get a deal? Is that basically what you thought to yourself? I knew that I I understood why they didn't get a deal. Okay however I didn't believe that that wasn't my opinion I didn't agree with the judges at the time You know the different people on Shark tank and and one of the guys. That was extremely interested. Ron Osa Who's kind of the Brandon Guy Behind? He's done vitamin water. Coast of stuff. He was already involved in bulletproof so I knew he opinion on it and he wasn't GonNa Invest even from before the episode started. But so the things that he was pointing out. I. I saw the other side of the argument. Just knowing that I knew that these guys could go and compete against Bulletproof and be half the price and you know lower caloric information no sugar etc. I just hit them up on instagram. And actually just did their podcast with them last week and they were like man that was the weirdest experience that we're watching the shark tank air and all of a sudden. I got from you just saying let's go meet. I WANNA make a business. The only good yeah man. That's that that was it. And when I went to New York and I was working with them when I decided to fully invest in. Go on their advisory board and help them one. I was getting these texts from them at four thirty in the morning. Five in the morning you know giving me updates on the business and everything I said. Okay the vibes right. These guys are hustling the fact that their messaging me every single day at four thirty in the morning and just grinding. I'm betting on them. Well at the end of the day it's like you're you're buying into the people. I told them that the jockey man the you know in. I think one of the books that I just read was ray values principles and he always says he says what makes a great CEO and something that he struggled with for so long was not being the C O that that said that they were responsible for the results. But how do you create the environment? How do you get the employees and teach those employees? Yeah veteran turn responsible for the results. So and that's kind of what a a main CEO would have a really great leader does and It was great to see these guys kind of transformed into. That's cool and I know that there's been some other deals that you did some other celebrities in Hollywood it was like what Kevin Horror or Russell Westbrook Book Yeah. We got a new gym that we opened with three of them now. That one's going. We're going to open the fourth one this year Rumble boxing gym opened up. You know it was at nine this year. So they've expanded now You know everything is of course the business kind of space right now is as of the last two weeks has been a little if you corona virus and buying stock and you have on sale. I haven't I haven't I'm still playing on the sideline because I don't think that anyone really knows what's going on now and for me. That creates worry with the market. Where there's just this crazy volatility and people are trying to play the game of buying in the low selling the next day high and and some people are GonNa win with that but I you know I'm not GonNa try to beat the system. I'm going to wait a little bit longer and then I'm always long. I never really. You know play around with the stocks and like do a day train thing. I see Warren Buffett just bought another hundred million shares a delta. He knows it ain't going nowhere. Yeah Yeah Yeah. Yeah I mean the airlines the cruise ships. All those people have gotten hammered. Ham We'll see what happens but you know if we're talking you know you're buying something to give to your kids one day. They're in good hands. Because I look at it like this. It's like they're not that those companies weren't bad companies. That's why the stocks down now. It's because of the situation. Yeah so if it's a long game like you said then. Which is what Warren always talks about. I was reading up how it said out off American Express alone. The dividends two hundred and fifty million a year right just from the amount because he's owned for so long and you know it's just it's an unbelievable number so it's pretty crazy. What is it mostly health and products? That's were that's what you're in from an angel standpoint or anything that's outside of that. Yeah I would say for the most part and I'm in Kind of health and wellness food and bed consumer product good space And I'd like to do that space. Because that's where I have the most influence in the most effect the most The best way to help these young entrepreneurs in these young companies To really grow. And that's what I WANNA do. I'm not really a passive investor. I'm not someone that says. Hey here's a here's a check talk to me and five years when it's you know five ten twenty five fifty x Because at the same time I'm twenty six. Yep I there's nothing I love more than than learning and when I get to go in on these early stage companies of that I can provide the capital I can provide connections. I can provide expertise that I've learned throughout all my other sixteen seventeen companies but at the same time I'm learning so much as as the market's changing as customers are changing and That's what I love and That's really why like to get involved with earlier. Stage companies your because they're still learning and I can actually have that influence to them and help them But as they continue to grow I mean. I never thought like a super coffee company that I'd be involved with the company that's becoming one hundred fifty two hundred million dollar company in the matter of years and It's been such a great learning experience and also the the different respect that you kind of get from other people in the field. Yeah it's been. It's been awesome but yeah kind of that that health and wellness space for the most part one thing. You said that. Your Dad told me when I was working with him he said look. You're going to get obviously all the people from fitness that know me and all these things raised on that on like. Yeah everyone knows you. But he's a the ROLODEX He's like when I work with people. Which is what you just said. The ROLODEX is yours too. If that's the most valuable thing what it's you don't even get that now it's massive and that's that's what. I had told these kind of products when we know when they're saying okay. Can you list out some of the? You know the benefits that will get you know besides capital and I'm like yeah boom like we have three hundred fifty stores. You WanNa test your product and see how it goes with different stores. You want to see if the coffee growing crazy. But that's that or are supermarkets. Our you know our gyms all those places are you know. Forget the sales part. It's the best way to get. Customers opinion was issued the best customer acquisition. It's the marketing it's the you know the AB testing of seeing which customers like. What or why they don't like how's the pricing everything like that. And that's that's one of the biggest things that that companies can ask for and then in turn it's also yeah. I've had great You know connections with tons of celebrities obviously in La in ones. That I'm friends with or that. I've connections with other businesses so I I never push investments on people. I always just introduce them. Then they take it and I always tell that to The entrepreneurs and the CEOS as well as I'll put you in a room with someone but you know you gotta make you gotTa make it happen. You GotTa close and I'm happy to work with you beforehand but you know I never liked to push anybody or pressure them to do any sort of investment. Because that's Yeah. Won't everybody's taste for that's different. Everyone's tastes but it's also like you know if things go. Great people are happy with you does. They're happy man. If I can hate you well I think there's that's part of the testing process like even when I first met with your data about business like he's testing you to see peed on your leg and you and I'm sure the same same if you're working with guys that you can go to one hundred million. Will they gotta be able to handle themselves in so if you put them in a room with Kevin Hart they better be able to handle it and I think that's I think that's part of the process to man it honestly is What What are you the most excited about right now? Oh Man I mean I'm continuing to kind of grow my company Achilles Advisors Find new companies to go on and consultant advice for both in the side of the investment. Play but now we're growing as just an overall company as as a consulting firm. Kinda going on at these early stage companies that that aren't really wanting to give up you know equity or not wanting to take in brand new capital but need kind of a You help or a voice on their shoulder of of Giving them kind of advice and helping them for a few months. So that's continuing to grow The biggest thing that I'm excited about is is kind of my event as my vents continued to grow. I've told you about it. Rookie in the vet. Yeah it's called Is the name. And that's you know growing the podcast side of rookie and the vet. The event space of rookie in the vet and one day is is the book. And that's kind of like I view myself concept. Yeah Yeah I'm the rookie. And the vet is basically I Patrick Schwarzenegger view myself as a rookie. Someone that is early in this process and wants to continue to learn from veterans people who are established that are successful in their field and To kind of bring it up on the PODCASTS side. It's for me to interview different veterans. Someone like yourself in the you know the workout space bodybuilding the consumer product. You know packaged business Or someone like my dad or Walberg or the Rock etc and. Yeah just stay with that that that right there. Patrick. But it's for me to investigate their principles their mindset what they had to sacrifice what Their goals were how how they got to where they are today and in turn help kind of the younger generation. The next or anybody. That feels like a rookie in there. Kind of space or that just wants to learn which should be everybody by the way And that's kind of the concept of the podcast with the events. I WANNA continue to bring in veterans in different industries to come in You know give motivational speeches. Talk about their life history. Their Story What they wish. They had known at our age or at our experience level in the industry So in the end of the day. It's all to to help other people. It's really to give back and find ways to use these these stories in these You know extremely successful veterans to help the rookies so good. Now we hear tons about your dad rate but I I never asked you anything about the mom. Your Mom's side before. Tell me a couple of things that you learned. I'm sure it's a ton but if you've got two things you could pick from from Maria side of the family from the Kennedy Lineage. Just from that whole thing that we don't really hear much about because dad with health and fitness is so dominant right. Yeah but speak on that I check yet my mom. She's she's a force she's She's amazing and you know. She sits down the Alzheimer's Association Board. And she's so passionate about You Know Finding out why women get Are Two thirds of people with Alzheimer's? And and have you know twice as likely a chance to get Alzheimer's in she's She's dedicated her life to really you know doing that. Everything from the Diet side to memory game of your family. Yeah so her. Father passed away from my grandfather. Passed away from Alzheimer's and I think that's why she just kind of like that. Made her why. Why shouldn't really wanted to find this out? How can she help other people In the future and You know of course. She's still does you know all new ones in the everything else that New York still right now. And she's continuing to do that and loves that side of the the business but I think something that I've learned from my mom in in large thing of that's also from my dad but my mom's kind of lineage and her family is is always to give back. You know. I think you've seen that with from her. Her great grandfather You Know Joseph p Kennedy to you know his kids and and you know being public servants in and going out in You know one being president. Few of them being senators and Congressmen and And then to kind of her parents of grant or her mother my grandmother. Eunice Kennedy Shriver. Starting the Special Olympics giving people started the Special Olympics in our backyard and even know that crazy story. Yeah and And I mean every summer we used to go over to to Washington. Dc to her house and she would still continue to do the camps in our backyard and we would get to volunteer their You know so from that side to starting exactly and that's why I was in Dubai. This last year was they actually hosted the special someone. Jim Was In the powerlifting. I saw you guys actually. He had a picture he had saw you. and I wondered like man Patrick's going way out of his way back. I didn't realize that connects. The connection is from my grandmother. But I mean there's nothing better for me than than you know that feeling of what was it. Go to yeah it was it was and they were so hospitable and they were just like they were you know welcomed everybody with open arms which was awesome and And my grandfather started the Peace Corp so they've always been about kind of giving back. How can you help other people? How can you help the less fortunate? How can you use the position that you're in and you're kind of platform to go and help others and I think that's a big thing that I've learned from my mom and from her side and my dad obviously does that as well but so many people are focused on getting to that kind of next goal that how do I make more money? How do I get that next title job at my editor at my occupation or or whatever that is and those are always like once you get there? You're kind of hit with a okay. What's next and there's no fan finish line and my dad always talks about that in his in his seven steps to success is the end is like once you get there. It's all about raising your platform so that you can ultimately find ways to give back and more people can listen to you and hear you and you have the ability to reach more people to give back in You know I find myself extremely fortunate that You know I find myself already in that position that I can give back the You know not only in financial ways but in in other ways in being in person at these different things like a special Olympics or best buddies or my dad's after school all star initiatives or anything like that so You know give back. I would say you know. It's super inspiring parrot. Patrick is to see how your parents as on blast as they are to be able to To raise all of your brothers and sisters man They're all like doing so many positive things and everybody has their drama from time to time. I'm sure but at the end of the day like man to be able to manage that. Yeah I mean that has to be good though for you too because obviously you're in the limelight and you're probably going to be a parent one day too so like to be able to try to continue that process to not raise knuckleheads right which happens you seen La Life Bro. I gotTa tell you. I'm sure you've had your. Everyone does in their early twenties school. I it's ultimately though you knew from that upbringing you know really what time it was just a young do that. Yeah Yeah Yeah one hundred percent that goes back to my both my mom and my Dad. They have such a weird separate. Couldn't be more opposite. Upbringings right yeah my dad from Austria and and And then my mom being from kind of the Kennedy Shriver side and and I mean it's just two worlds that couldn't be more opposite colliding and it kind of it it. It was such an interesting way of their parenting. And how they brought us up and I mean know so far so good. It's been good but You know my parents were extremely strict and especially with manners in Always with finding ways to give back like I've said and ultimately it's it's really my dad always nailed in our head was like kind of find your passion and You know like you said in the beginning. He's not someone that gives out free throws in. He's still isn't and it's always like in the end of the day you gotta work and you gotTa Work Your ass off and that's That's also one of his. You know tips of To success is like no matter. What your vision is you know. Tons of people have dreams but it's the ones that will actually go out there and and put him the work that will get there and I have so many dreams that I wanna accomplish and envisions and everything like that and I know that you know they're not just going to be handed to me and I know that it's not you know right here in front of me just because my dad is not that I gotta go out there and putting the work and I'm in the process. It's won't let people know that it doesn't matter you know. Look there might be some things here there that You can access but the end of the day you still have to make your own way. You still gotta push and specially guys like your dad. Who came from absolutely nothing right there? He's not GonNa WanNa just hand you stuff. Now he wants you so you can have your own gratification. So people just assume which we know how assumptions it's like but that's what I love about you. Kind of blazing your own path getting on the mic more. Think it's huge being vulnerable in some of these things to Patrick. I think this is all good because it is it's your own Lane Bryant love it. That's one of the things that I've I would say. I've struggled with the most in the past years. And it's something that I've kind of not in this last slump but in other parts of my my life in the last year or two and through my mentor has extremely helped me. But I feel like a lot of the the motivation that I have is. Because people always ask don't you feel daunted by Your Dad's shadow your mom shadow Are you trying to make a name for yourself and everything and I am bodybuilder? Yeah Yeah Right And I think that so much of my motivation has been to kind of prove to other people that I have my own path which has been great. And it's made it so that I that I do get up at five. Am doesn't it makes me. It makes me grind. However I've realized that it's a never ending cycle. Yeah I'm never going to get to the point in my life that I'm GonNa Convince you know. Joe Shmoe over here Joe Smith over here that I had my That I've created my own path without anybody's helping them very open with this like I said that I've had in extreme amount of help. Yeah you know. I wouldn't have gotten my first loan to go into my blaze pizza company that made millions if it weren't for my dad and my mom to support that that business idea or or there's levels that there's the same level help coming to somebody that might not have as much money for their opportunity relative. It is but I mean it more on a personal level of Patrick Schwarzenegger myself. I'll never be internally satisfied if I'm always just chasing to make sure that other people view me as that and that's what I kind of started to recognize last year and with my mentor. Because he was like what the why. Why are you getting up that early? Why are you grinding so hard like you don't need to you? Have you have money you have you had six? I'm like man. I WANNA go prove to people on. He's like let me tell you something that's Never GonNa Happen. You're going to always be chasing that feeling for the rest of your life and you gotta think of you gotTa sit back and really create a why as to why you want to do the things that you want to do. And then all your success is possible. Then you'll love you know kind of internally successful in it's never about you know making that that million dollars or that billion dollars or whatever because he's like I've done it and I'll tell you what happens when that money hits your account. Nothing you're happy. You're hitting amount of dopamine but then you're searching for that next business venture and he's like. I had that same problem man and I'm telling you right now you gotta find your Otherwi- wow he's like and that's a beautiful thing to get you motivated. Get going but you gotta dig deep and Find Out. What is it you know you try to impress your daddy and trails? That's wild and it's been something that I've been focusing a lot on in the last year. And a half or so and it's it's totally changed my kind of my life and it's and it's allowed me to utilize fear in a different way. Yeah because so much of the fear is is you know going back to other people is like you know fear of what other people think of you letting people you know putting a real value on other people's thoughts of view and you start to become the person that you don't want to be in and not what someone else wants you to be what you think other people. Yeah a bad. It's bad it's bad lane. Yeah so I'm happy. I recognize that. And I'm so fortunate that I have people that can articulate that to me I mean to to go into but it's Yeah the hard work thing Obviously back to your POPs for second. He's displayed it. Probably as long as you can remember. Has there been anything like along the way That you've like went with him on or done something with him. That was like all right that I'm sure it's many things but maybe the first time we were like man. We just did that for fifteen hours. My Dad was like so like there's a level of work that it takes to become somebody like arnold or any type of obsessive person. So is there something that early on? You saw him. Just do that was like that's kind of what it takes okay. I think that I kind of wish that he ran for governor. When I was older I could really kind of appreciate that side of it Because when I was you know ten years old or eleven years old he was for me. It was like Oh. Governor has to go to the capital of Warner Brothers Studios Rides but I think the work ethic that went into that of just nonstop every single day and he was flying to different cities each and every day and then he would fly back home now dinner with us or to try to pick us up from school and I was just like you know looking back on that time. I think I think of like. Oh Wow that's serious I was serious. Yeah that was. I mean nonstop. But it's weird because it's kind of like going back to the idea of the the rituals and the habits of of kind of his everyday is like he just doesn't Stop Dude. His schedules unbelievable nuts. And it's like you know even when we were supposed to come here and I was supposed to do this dinner with you on Thursday night and then I texted you. Hey Man we can't. My Dad now needs to go to Canada quickly for an hour to do this. Talukdar with the Arnold Entrepreneurs Conference but he just yeah he just never stops in his thing. It's like going back to everything. What is why in his wise as you continue to gain more platform as he does more movies as he impacts people at these entrepreneur conferences. Everything then he can find ways to give back. Yeah you know. Help more people in and Even here at the Arnold Classic. It's like he's not worried about this little hiccup because it's still going to go towards. How do we impact people? How do we bring health and fitness to more and more people you know? Forget the financial impact. Let's just push forward. We know what we're here to do. And what are. Why isn't what our motto is? As the Arnold Classic. Forget about the financial hit. Let's go we gotta we gotta keep going and it's it's a mindset that is Yeah one of a kind and I'm extremely happy and honored to to be able to learn from it. But it's like you know growing up just kind of what he's told me it's there's no other option yet. I it's either you get stuck on the farm milking the cow or you go in live out your dream and I think that's a big thing for a lot of these these kind of listeners out. There is going back to the idea of fear in something that my dad does is. How do you flip? Fear the other way you know instead of being like I wonder what other people are. GonNa think if I fail at trying to become a movie star fail if I do these businesses. Switch the fear and say what happens. If I didn't try this you know we'll see over that. Yeah exactly when you flip that and you're more worried about the feeling of not giving it a try or not trying business or not trying to do that film or not trying to do whatever it is then utilized fear. Just don't WanNa be on my deathbed thinking man. I should've tried that. Yeah I should have tried this like I want to know I went all out and in what came of it is what it is exactly and that failure isn't really a thing it's a lesson. Kemin like that was the one thing like when I had Breakfast with your dad shortly after the MP stuff he's like it's all about how you stand up now that you learned a lot to tell his famous quote push one when he says like. Why are you worried about fail? You know how how far down you're GONNA fall if you fail. How far he looks down at the ground. He goes to maybe a foot or two. I mean that's the truth. Yeah he goes what that's the farthest you're GONNA fall right down to the floor. It's taken and keep moving. And you just gotTa get back up and I always says it as a joke but it's true it's like we're so scared that fall but it's only right there. Yeah man that's true. I'll tell you what one thing that was so cool you out of town. I was in for Christmas right and I was training with your dad. You know I was in town. I was a member of the night I was filming now. That's right that's right. I was pissed so I went out and when I was training with your dad and he introduced me to somebody from Budapest was in town. He was on this security detail last night so he goes. This is corey. This is someone he said this and this made my day. This is somebody I trust and knows how to work hard and I was like. Oh Shit Arnold said that like to me. That's what I was always trying to show him that I'm not gonNA maybe get it. Perfect all the time. But you know I'm going to put the work in and I think over time because I've just been obsessive about that I've gotten better and better and better and I'm still learning but it's like people know what they're going to get right and I think that that was the one thing that I knew. Academics wasn't there. I knew that you know. I didn't come from any type of background in business but I was just a relentless character that loves what I do and I think that over time. It taught me that maybe I could get an endorsement like that in the gym. Like Arnold's introducing me like this could've made that up if I tried. You know what I'm saying so it's like I really believe that what I lacked in these other areas. I was able to bring up with that. Because you knew what you were going to get you you and you get some nice comments like that over the years and that means the world to me because I know if I ever if we ever worked together on another project again or do something that you know what you're going to get from my side and that right there like you know telling the listeners that that people that actually get it That that means a lot because that you know if they're going to put their money in you they're going to put the ROLODEX and you. They're going to put your time. If Patrick Schwarzenegger is going to invest in your company. You better have some work to you right. That's why you respected those guys texting you at four in the morning. One hundred percent or about their about their business about the grind. Yeah so good. It's so true and I think that's a big big lesson and I'm sure you hit home with this every single time to your listeners but I mean how old are you now. I'll be forty two this year. Forty two I mean so you have so much more time still but you probably would have never done the Max effort or your Corgi APP or any of those businesses. If the last one didn't work out too how did no question and I think that you know going back to the idea of this. This failing people are so afraid to fail especially a lot of your listeners. Who are in their early twenties at school. That had just finished school that are wondering if they should drop out of school or are in the Mid Twenty S. And they're saying Oh my God I don't know what to do now. I just got this degree and I'm not you know. Go out there and swing for the fences if you guys don't if it doesn't work out if it fails you know once again it's not a failure to mistake. How do you learn from that? And then your next business you bounce back smarter stronger and and I mean look what you were telling me some of the numbers. You're doing right now with your other businesses and it's it's It's amazing that you could bounce back and that just shows you you took exactly what you learn from the last one. What worked what didn't work. And how do I apply it to my next thing? So yeah it's a building block as wild Anything else you WANNA share with the with the listeners. Patrick that's just you know. We talked about on the daily fire for everybody. That didn't listen to you. You talked about a slump earlier. You had shoulder surgery even through that kind of leads to that process. Real little bit guys. Didn't hear the other up. Of course I think we just talked about going through a little bit of a slump a mental slump and physical slump. And it's something that I've been dealing with for the last Call it six eight weeks or something like that of having that shoulder surgery has just totally taken me out of my daily rituals and it's totally effected the time I wake up from from you. Know not being able to work out to what I'm eating to my work ethic to not working nearly as much not being as diligent not as determined. And it's allowed my my subconscious everything to focus on the things that I couldn't do rather than as that I could do and I shared that with a lot of my followers in so many of them. Were deeming me and messaging me of how much they related to that and You know what I urge a lot of people. Is that if you're going through that it's one thing to acknowledge that you're going through that slump. But it's another thing to to take action and find ways to get out of it to supplement that time or to find something else that you can focus on when you can't do you know for my case my physical exercise at my working out Anything like that and You know everybody goes through slumps and I think that we talked a little bit about Social Media Instagram. Which is this highlight reel and and everyone's showing their ups in their their campaigns and their movies like I do but at the same time behind the scenes. A lot of people are going through a lot of You know probably city adversity and and the other thing. Instagram doesn't do is you? Show your eight-pack on there and you show how much you're lifting and it doesn't show the other four hours you're up in the morning. Yeah doing everything to get you know. And and When I post actually lifts I MISS. I get more comments than the ones I make. These people like Oh finally. You didn't make one. Yeah I'm like. Yeah why would he put the one I make on the but we gotta get better at that. I think because especially if you have a platform you gotta let people know that you are human. Yeah and so for all the listeners out there that you're struggling with deciding what business you do. WanNa go towards or you're not happy in your current conditions or you have an idea that you're wondering if you should go out and swing for the fences for or you're just having struggles you know with family stuff or financial stuff or health stuff or anything like that You know like I told Corey. Enjoy the time off the field. Recognize what it is that you're that you need to change and get back on the field so that you can come back stronger and better than ever. It's awesome working.

Fighting Slumps - Patrick Schwarzenegger - Ep. 16

"Yoyo daily fire episode. Sixteen if it's trash turn it off but if it has value you gotta share it out for me man. I got a special guest of course is brought to you by Max. Effort MUSCLE DOT com. And you're listening to the business and biceps network. And I got my homeboy Patrick Schwarzenegger on today. And we're going to talk about slumps. Because everyone has slumps and Patrick's going to you know talk you through a little bit of some. He's going on and how he's battling through and let you know that it doesn't matter who your dad is who your mom is what business you're in. How many Calvin Klein things you're in. Everyone deals with this stuff right PAT slumps part of everybody's life. It's something that you know we were just talking about. What should we what? What kind of topics should we talk about and Corey kind of asked me what was something I was currently going through. And I'm I'm on the verge of the outs of a but I would say January was overall was a Software these by the way you don't have to I would say January was overall a slump month and I'm sure you've gone through and tons of your listeners. Have gone through something like this. But when you're kind of a a human like mere you I mean you're you're even crazier than I am and you're up at four am in grinding every single day and I'm up at five usually going but rituals and routines are such a large part of my lifestyle not just the physical portion of the actual working out in the gym but the ritual of throughout the day. And how much my gym in my working out in the mornings impacts the rest of my day and it turned the rest of my week and everything like that and when I had shoulder surgery recently. It really just cramped everything. Why when I say everything I mean. From what time I was waking up to what I was eating to not being able to work out to. My work ethic to every single thing was completely getting. Let go which is an intern. It's fine for a few days because I was on. The you know the whatever pills they give you an post-surgery and you really can't do much but for someone like myself for you or my dad or anybody that lives that lifestyle it it. It just destroys you. There was a wrench in everything throws a wrench into everything and It was something that like. I could feel myself going through. My girlfriend could see my family could see it and my mom was like. She felt so bad for me because she knows. Like how? How much that my my rituals and my my My days are you know revolved around working out. And I'm not someone that's you know. Big And all jacked up. But it's just something that's that's allowing. My date always start with a win. You know getting up at that certain moment and and actually going and doing it in with the surgery just destroyed me and it was fresh in January so it was just after I went when my My goals for the year and I I or created a goal session for everybody else and and was helping them on on how to do their goals in and I just UNMINED and I don. I didn't even have any workout goals. I mean in the past I had done. You know certain things of wake up at five. Am or something like that or make sure to work out five days a week. And then I I kind of went back and forth with my my own self of should. I put a goal and I'm curious to see if you do that but I was like why. Why even put something of wake up at five? Am more workouts. And that's just how I operate. Yeah it became a ritual. That's the norm. Yeah and it was. It was no longer goal. Exactly what you said. It became a ritual. And you know what? I don't need that on my goals board. It's just taking a broom in taking my mind away from the other things that I actually do need a progress in sure but three four weeks later I was waking up at eight. I was not working out. I was doing all these things and I was like Shit. You know what I should go back to that but I couldn't 'cause my my shoulder surgery but I decided to post that on instagram. I've been trying to do more of inspirational motivational things. Things that I've learned from my dad. My family certain mentors that I've had in my life and Everything is always kind of pushing positively pushing that motivational side. And I decided that in the last month just to share kind of what I was going through because instagram on its own as a highlight. Reel right it's your sportscenter highlights lately too. I think he pushed out. I really do but at the same time I also have the slumps and so does every single person out there in the world whether they want to recognize it or not whether they wanna do something about their slumps or not. That's kind of the difference maker between a lot of different people and I think that's when I decided to Kinda share that video of just telling people look man. I'm going through this and it's killing me mentally physically everything. It's just damn bring my mood. It's tampering my work and Hey I'm going through it. I know that a lot of you guys are probably going through it. You don't WanNa tell other people but first off when you just say it and you speak out. You're ready feel when you recognize that you're going through a slump. That's one thing but then the biggest thing is how do you get out of it? How do you progress out of it? How do you change your habits that you no longer dwindle down into the spiral of going out of control and that was a big thing for me of when I said that to people and I recognize? Okay Patrick. You can't progress on any of your physical goals. You can't progress on. You know staying in shape working out at this time and I remember I message my mentor and I was like man. This is this is killing me and he goes. How lucky are you? They you still can wake up at five. Am every day instead of working out for that our too you can supplement that time with reading with listening to podcasts. Does anything else. He's go back to your mouse and I went back and I. I want to read a book. A month I want to start this book club. I wanted to just continue to learn. Learn learn this year gain as much as I could from people that I look up to so that I could in turn you know. Use Myself as a medium to feed other people disinformation and he was like dude. This is this is fine. This is God's plan for you have so much more time to do all those things that you put on your goal sheet this year go ahead and and and use that time so. I think that it was a really enlightening experience for me and and I heard this kind of quote from Warren Beatty. That was like enjoy the time off the field. When you're someone like us we're always wanting to be on the field you know it's true and he was like there's nothing better than being off the field house like really like Nah. I don't feel that feel that. And he was like being off. The field is the only time that let's get that outside perspective of other people that are on the field and you can see. Okay Patrick are you doing the things in life that you're wanting to be doing? Is it bringing you joy? Are you working with the people that you should be working with? Are they helping you? Or they promoting their lives of everything you get that that kind of external view on your whole lifestyle and everything when you're off the field in very rarely are people like us off the field and for you to get that time and really sit back and try to enjoy and see what's going on so that when you get back on the field you're that much better and just it's all about kind of perspective and how you look at different moments in your life but. I think the biggest shock for me was to see the responses for me. By Far. That was my most you know. Dm's MC relatable look in Hollywood in general or any type of people that have a stature and it's like hard for them to be vulnerable and yeah just being honest because everyone does deal with this. And I think that that right there you could. You can't do enough of that. To be honest with you right. You want people to be able to relate to you because it's tough and and Dude I'm not even close to the level of people that know me but they they're like dude. You're always a machine. I feel like I can't I can't operate like even close to you so like when I bring out and say same thing with me. I had the injury and I was like think it's the best thing ever happened to me right because honestly gave me a ton more gratitude. These twenty crazy years. I had been able to compete like this. I thought weightlifting was taken away from me And you know they're talking about. Maybe I ripped superstar being down ten twelve months and I missed more than a week's work out since I was seventeen. I was thinking about law. I was like what you guys are saying to me right now. And so it gave me a lot of perspective. Yeah and I think when people feel that way flippant like that and so I I appreciate that. Man That vulnerability will help your followers and fans continued to be like man. This guy's a real guy right and I. I think it's hard for people to identify. It is it is it definitely is and that's something that I'm learning from. From an outsider's perspective perspective of myself is how do I really relate to other people You know and and especially when I'm trying to talk about business or I'm talking about Motivational things or giving a lot of kids that are in school or dropping out of school or wondering if they should all this stuff this advice and yet I come from such a specific background It's it's always trying to find that that you know. What's the best way to speak to that audience? Yeah and I'm I'm never someone that's going to shy away from kind of the you know the people that have helped me get to where I am. I wouldn't be anywhere without my my parents. You know from the mentor side of the financial side to everything. Yeah but I've still got into learn a lot from that. Make your own way Bro. Yeah percents daddy ain't giving you no three throws already done that. All Right say the Warren beatty quote one more time. We're going to wrap this with that. Yeah he told me that actually he told my acting coach. Who told me was that? Enjoy the time off the field because rarely are you actually off the field and you get to see it from a totally different perspective of what you're enjoying who the people are. You're working with and make the changes that when you're back on the field you're ready to go love it. Daily Fire Episode. Sixteen brought to you by Max. Effort MUSCLE DOT com.

Every time i see you on one of these in the kitchen it's usually in the kitchen or in the freezer one of the two. I know i know how are you ben. How's it family. Everyone's good really well. How about you good signs of life in southern california which is making me hopeful. You know it's been so long since we've been to certain places. Certain restaurants certain gyms theaters things like that. So that's just. It gives me a special energy every morning dan.

He's nice many times but you've got to call him by his character's name otherwise people are gonna mitchell so bad bad boy she does not like mitchell. You very rude jock. No but the movie was so good. And i actually didn't even watch a preview for it. Just popped up on my netflix. And i ended up watching it on international women's day of all days to watch this movie which is such girl power and i loved it. It was really really good. Oh thank you. I appreciate it but yeah. That's funny the amount of messages that i got saying. I want to punch you in the face. It was joking around. It was actually nice because a lot of people are like no.

I'm known Patrick for probably almost ten years, and I'm about all right special guest. Patrick schwarzenegger. What's up? Pat. What's going on, man? The amount of times of heard the wake your ass up on it, man. I was thinking about this today is as I was walking up the first time we got a chance to meet you came over to the booth. You're still in high school. I think yeah. I remember coming over. I think someone was like yo you gotta go Corey muscle farm. Pops is looking at doing something just go meet him. See what you think? And then that's when I just randomly strode up your booth you brought me up to the. Roof and we started chatting. Yeah. I got a chance to train and just kind of getting no other over last ten years what I'm really excited about is one. You don't know John that? Well, so it'd be some great questions from from him myself and just understanding from the high school kid that I met right transitioning into college and now into the business world, it's like what are you been up to what are you excited about? And you know, just kind of what's on your mind right now. Right. Right. Right. I mean, it's so interesting like. You saying that you've known me for about what ten years in? And we know each other pretty well. But at the same time, you don't know what I'm up to at all. And and it's something that, you know, I don't know. I try to read a magazine. I don't know exactly who your demo listener is. But you know, for the kids that are out there in high school, the kids that are out there in college, the people that are just post, you know, grad shit changes. That's for sure not only in life. But like what you wanna do. I mean, there's so many people that come up to me that always like, you know, I'm just in college. I'm just about to finish. Like, I don't know. What to do? I'm getting really worried and stuff like that. I was like, dude. If I go back to myself in high school when I first met you and you ask Pat, what do you want to do? It's totally changed from where I am today. And what I'm what I'm wanting to do. Yeah. In by the way. That's totally fine. Yeah. You know? I think you're the perfect example of like, I mean, we just talked about this before the interview started like you started doing this podcast. And now, you're like, oh, my God this thing fucking blew up. Going back to the stuff of like. Okay. Doing what you're passionate about doing? What you love this affects the success will come out sensually with that people. Don't that tat right now though in today's world, I g famous and five seconds, right, Johnny because it takes time and work an involves patients, you know, Instagram and social media are like highlights of people's lives. Right. But people who do not have let's say time on their side. Young people. They think that's the way it's supposed to be. Yeah. I think I'm supposed to be Patrick Schwarzenegger when I'm twenty five and if I'm not a failure. So I guess that leads me to the first place. I wanna go being who you are. Right. I assume a big part of your strategy in all the projects all the businesses that you're involved in is social media, obviously, that's that's the climate. We live in. What do you think? Social media has done to the societal psyche. Especially of young people in this country. Good, better indifferent. Right. I mean, social media. It's such a animal of itself. Obviously. I love it. I'm not gonna pretend like ice crew social media. I don't use it. I use it. I'm on, you know, daily say Instagram, whatever in twenty nineteen my goal. My one of my little things that I put on my on my to do list was no social media Sunday. So just taking off all of Sunday from social media minutes one day a week somewhere to start with. But I mean, everyone social media is kind of different. I try to use it for work and promoting things. But at the same time like I don't wanna do any paid posts. I don't wanna do anything like that. I don't wanna do anything. That's not me. That's not Patrick. I don't care if it's. For hey, take this money up front. Like, no, I'm going to go in on companies that I believe in and stuff and use social media to help push that forward help to push brand forward help to push the films that I'm working on stuff. Like that. I'm not into you know, hey, this red ribbon company give me x amount of money and put it out there. And pretend that I'm someone that I'm not, and that's a big thing with social media. And you see so many people pretending to be something that they're not. I mean, you I mean, I've been in LA I'm in West Hollywood, I'm in Hollywood, which is that of it. All. Capital of all of this stuff. And you see these people on on social media that that you're like, you know, sometimes you had a coffee. I'll be like, oh, that's that person has like whatever that pretend to be this. Then you meet them in real life. And they're totally not like that. Or they're pretending to continue to be like that to put up a front of who they are. And it's so it's such an interesting world of I still can't even understand it fully in, you know, one of my things that I really wanted to ask you, Patrick, and I'm I'm super intrigued by this is on the having the first generation of some type of success in my family. And now as my son talked about an eighth grade, and my kids get older like kind of passionate down teaching it and you come from a pedigree. That's just undeniable on both sides. Yeah. Mom and your dad. So it's like was business just ever so present or the dialogue that I'm trying to get to wake. Is it? Just what you do what you've seen 'cause you might not know anything else that you know, what I'm right there. So intrigued by this business. Is something that my dad and mom both kind of put into my head. When I was a little kid. I mean, you know, I started with doing things like lemonade stance. You know, literally. Whatever you're doing it as young kids learning about. Okay. I'm putting this much crystal light or whatever into my water, and it's costing me a few dollars. Now, I have to do it for this. What's the markup like simple things teaching kids young? There goes the first business that I ever ran was here, which was my dad's memorabilia, which was all for charity. Sure. But he was like when I started to get interested in business. He was like, look I have this. I'm selling photos of myself. I'll sign them I'm selling. That was really about it. And he was like wanted this over you get to of your friends or something, and you learn about business and do what you want, and I'll do it with you. And I was like great. So I was like how about we start doing t shirts. This was before the deal with. With chip. T shirts. So at the classic you were all the memorabilia all for six years, and we took it from a business doing little few thousand dollars two years. We were doing fifty sixty seventy thousand dollars nice that involved my dad giving up his Conan's sword, which probably wasn't that happy about. But it was it was for charity. But no, I learned how to buy the t shirts. Yep. Yeah. Get them bring them. How do I do it for retail K these ones or signed by my dad? Let's Mark those boys up. Yeah. Let's get this picture. It's not framed. That's what it sells for. Let's get these ones that are framed how much is that you get very serious yet for me was like a dream. Come true getting run a business and learn about it at a young age. What and got I started at maybe ten. Wow, pretty cool. It was awesome. Again. It wasn't for money. It was all for charity, which is you know, a totally different feeling on its own. Like, you know, always I'm always a big believer of giving is better than receiving and giving back is alternately. What's you know, long-term where I wanna go? Sure. But it just I think teaching kids at a young age. And I mean, you started this thing with a kind of a college, you know, loans, whatever it was. And and there's always the big question of like is it really worth college? These days. Are you learning what you're learning in the college space, and then going in applying it after school or is it better? Get your hands dirty run it first Handley. And I'm not saying that's exactly what I did. But I learned early. And that's my dad was yet. He was always a big person of like you. Gotta learn business, Pat, if you wanna go to to film school, if you wanna go do acting great, but in the height of my career, this is my dad talking out in the height of my career when I was the biggest action star I was doing films year. That's eight months of the year. I'm working my ass off. What about the other four months? What am I gonna do? Just going to sit there and waits the next film. Gotcha. You know, he had bodybuilding which is a huge thing. But okay, I'm doing that four five hours a day. Then then what you know. He can't six he's kind of like you. Dad? I can't I'm not going to sit from four AM to eight AM lifting. I'm doing this. And this and this and I'm getting my food. And like, okay now what you know. Like, I need to do something else which was like business for him. You know, right after that him and Franco started doing the brick. Yeah. In venice. Anyone bought his first apartment building? Then he went and did some investments, and he was doing they started can help any John building walls. And they don't even know what they were not at all. But still that that gave him the foundation of his real estate mind, and then going in there and then like Venice buying land. And everything in Venice beach forty years ago. Everyone was like what are you doing that bodybuilding people that are doing drugs and still there, but a lot of any one of the hottest areas in unless it's? He was always like, look, you can you can do whatever you want. But like why not get business like whatever you're wanting to do? Whether you wanna be a trainer, you gotta know business. Whether you wanna be a plumber, you gotta know business. Whether you want to be a teacher, whether you want to be a a businessman, whether you want to be an actor, and you have to go over your negotiations. Whatever no business business is the foundation. Everything else will go around it. So yeah. So okay. I'm putting myself in the listener shoes, I'm saying, okay. This sounds like you knows what he's talking about going to play devil's advocate go, so. He came out of the womb with every advantage. Why should I listen to him talking about me now? Yes. Okay. Yeah. Why should I listen to you from the listener, right? Talking about business, right? And coming up, by the way, I don't wanna come off as like, I know all I didn't come when you say I come out of the womb having this this and this I did my dad didn't he did it? He came out with absolutely nothing. You know, he was milking a cow for his job. You know, he had to go break into gyms to get his workout. And you know, obviously, I can't compare my upbringing. But that doesn't mean it's going to stop me from China. Do what I wanna do. And in the end. It's like it's business like why not use what I have right now to my advantage in going help other companies, and how do you do that? That's my point. Yes credentials, you that you don't have? No, I I wanna what happens is people start to hear things, Patrick, look what you said. And just go the automatic lycee. Shinedown? Give you the respect the things that you're spitting or things. I've never I mean today with I mean, even in the, you know, political world whether that's Trump whether that's Howard Schultz, whether that's other people that have run in. It's like, you know, why should we you know, right now Howard Schultz. The big thing is like why do we want to? And I'm not saying anything about opinions on politics. Whether I agree or disagree. But it's like Howard Schultz. Why am I gonna listen to you? You just you're a billionaire. That's talking us in trying to help us. Okay. He came from nothing. He's going and doing all this stuff. Like, right. That's the American dream absolute is the -ccomplish it. And now he's trying to help other people wires everyone bashing the idea, it's a big thing with America. And with with a lot of people that they go in one other people have made it there's a jealousy factor. And I I understand that there's sometimes where I'm like going to business and other people are succeeding. I'm like damn like, this is so annoying. This thing that thing and like instead of dragging someone else down. It's like, okay. What can I use that? I've learned from them to go and build upon that to be better myself. It all has to start with yourself. And if people are, you know, right now saying that to me like, why am I listening to you, man? You came from a family that's been successful. That's had money like it's much easier. Okay. Like focus on the negative or listen to what I'm saying. And try to take away some positive things it can help you. I can tell. The reason I ask questions I can tell you a smart guy, and you're on it. I want the listener. Yeah. To feel that same thing. So your dad's in icon, your mom's an icon your family speaks for itself. Who is Patrick Schwarzenegger? Right. Why are you going to be in that category on your own two feet? Right. Well, first off I don't ever want to like in that category. Probably one of the biggest questions, and you guys have Asiya. But like do you feel like you're engulfed by your data your mom shadow? Do you feel like you have to go and do that stuff that they did? So you can be your own name or whatever. Like a big thing with my life is I wanna make my own name. I wanna make my own career choices my own career path. But at the same time like I wanna do what I wanna do. Yeah. You know, I have a very clear set of goals in path of where I want to go in life, and I'm going to do that. And if brings me up to that, pedigree, you know, one day up where my mom and my dad is my FAM, you know, great. I hope what do you wanna do? I wanna do guy ready for a long list. Yes. Yes, I want to do business. And when I said business, I wanna go and help, you know, young entrepreneurs help expand their businesses. I wanna come in. I wanna give you capital, and I wanna give expertise, and I want to give you connections. That's that is is so valuable. I I'm not a person that says, here's some money. Call me and five years when it's five x when it's ten x. Nope. I'm gonna come in there at your seed stage. I'm going to like that early investment. I'm gonna give you some money. I wanna come on your board. I'm gonna help you to that Mike connections in the consumer product goods space. Whether it's setting you up with the local grocery store, whether that's setting you up with, you know, distribution channel whether that setting you up with someone that we used for our t-shirts in China that can help get your cogs down for your clothes. Whether that's whatever it is. Whether that's you know, putting your you've ready to drink iced tea, thin great. Let's test that an all my blade stores. We have three hundred of them. Let's see how they're doing. Hey, you've got a cool desert that great. Let's go put that in our in our you know in our blaze. It's put that in our every table. One of my other companies is actually here in Columbus, Ohio right now called super coffee. Right. I came to them. They were they were three brothers that sort of that out of their college dorm room they were on shark tank. They didn't get any investment from any of the sharks. Okay. All of them said, dude, you're crazy. This is this bulletproof story the big category of of coffee with C T oil butter coffee. Like, no, we're not gonna do that the next day. I hit them up. I said dude, I believe in you three kid. You guys are you guys from college doing this out of your dorm room just a few thousand dollars, and whatever like more more than just the product. I believe in you guys. Let's do a deal. I went to New York. We did a deal they're doing millions a month. Nice their kids in and they're like, okay. So now. Is awesome pad? And I'm like, dude, I'm not here. Just give you money. Like, I'm gonna come here. Like, you guys are gonna fly to LA if you're gonna meet with the grocery stores that I know I'm gonna take you. So you meet my girlfriend who's from Alabama who totally different demographic and market. I wanna see what her and her friends think of it your price range, let's get down to that under three dollars. So that you can go across middle American. So that five ninety nine bulletproof or its struggling middle America. Let's get the female democrat. You know? So I go in and I like to go and be extremely hands on because in the end of the day. I'm a consumer. I'm Patrick Schwarzenegger. You have money. I'm consumer. I'm someone that's taking the products that someone that's trying the product same with max effort. Same with muscle. Do you know as much as we near real consumer? And I think that's why I always had success because this is what I eat breathe and do, and I know it exactly like it. The best of of anything. It's what I do. I think what's interesting. So far is for me. Just there's other parts of what I wanna do in life. I want to get to that to what what I like Pat is bringing up kids in an environment. That's as lavish or crazy as your family is into keep any type of grounded like them grounded would be so difficult. I think but knowing your dad and his work ethic in the things he I don't know your mom, but it's like men I just kudos to them. Just hearing what you're saying. Right. This second just goes to show that there had to be some type of the check you on a regular basis when he was feeling yourself too much. I've heard him chirp out you before. But you know, what I'm saying was your dad like a motherfucker like don't be filling yourself liking, my dad and mom, I mean, you know, great parents. As ING we have really great family. My mom is an extremely great mother. She she had they both had very different growing ups, very different lifestyles, very different how my dad came to America versus my mom, you know, being in the family. She was her parents were very strict, my dad's parents were extremely strict on a different level. So them to coming together. Kind of you know, they were definitely strict, you know, it wasn't like, you know, here's your phone at thirteen. So you can do this. There was family dinners every night. There was you know. Famous stores with my dad and kids at our house. You leave your shoes around, you know, where they are there in the fireplace. He'd put them in the fire, you leave the electricity on you go off to school, and you leave your your lights on those lights aren't in there when you're back don't base, it always electrobi-, you're gonna leave your laundry on the ground for someone to pick up. No that laundry is gone. You make your bed when you went off to school that beds over the balcony. And it's like everyone thinks that's crazy. No. Like that. That taught me like, yeah. No. I'm not gonna leave these lights on when I leave the room. I'm not gonna leave my room a mess. I'm gonna like, you know, those little examples, but I'm just. Great insights strict, and it was a level of respect for each other. And like, you know in tenth grade eleventh grew my friends could go out till whatever time. No, you're at home by by eleven okay tenth year, seventh grade. Now, you're home by midnight. Okay. See what? Yeah. No. There was always, you know. And then when my dad was governor is different. You had the officers. I think you remember those that would follow you everywhere and stuff. But at first I was like, oh my God. I'm gonna go through my teenage teenage years. I'm calling me. But then it was like, okay. Like, I have respect for you have respect for me. And like, we became really close. Great friends. Sure. And it just evolved. But there's a really fine line. Obviously on I'm not a parent. I'm not gonna speak on it. But I was a kid with parents. Great parents. And there's a fine line of you know, how strict you can be. And I think the biggest thing is like trust and being open. You know, my parents were very open, and like talking about things whether that was like, you know, anything and that was like a big thing them trusting me to go out. Come back at the right time, Mead, go out. Do these things come back. You know, there was just a big level trust. And and they somehow navigated, you know, bringing us up in a wild west of Los Angeles saying like straight talk wireless, which like say the kudos to that. Good joan. What would I like from a business standpoint to the question earlier is? Up dealt with investors you've dealt with investors. I think many people in this arena have dealt with investors. And in my mind, there's two kinds right? The kind that throw money at you. Ryan, they check in with you fucking three months and their mother fucking headache because they don't understand the process. And then there's the kind who say, listen, the reason I'm putting my money in is because I have access to these channels and these channels and these channels, and this isn't just your game. It's my game too. So if we team up sure my money is going to juice up to business. But so is my that's being practical. With may be the situation that you were able to learn from right to learn from one of the best in your father. But you're saying I took the information Lisa sow interpreting it and now I'm providing venture capital, and I'm also. Providing connections to grow businesses. And as an entrepreneur that's for everybody listening. That is the that's good money. Right. As good money as bad money. Right. That's good money. So I have a better understanding of how you approach things. I have a better understanding of the question. I asked you earlier, and I'd like you to expand on that a little bit. If you have a venture capital fund yourself mouse with others. Yes. So, you know, kind of going back to the, you know, Patrick you came out of the womb with everything yet cetera. I don't you know, use. I only use my own money that I've made. To just to get that straight. I mean, I got a a loan of less than six figures when I was younger I took that invested in a seed into a company called blaze pizza. Hey, I was going to next. Yeah. That was a company that was starting that was after the AAA crazed. I was after the subway craze. And this guy Rick Wetzel, who's a genius who created what's pretzels used to get made fun of in school? They would call them. What's Rick, the Wetzel, the pretzel or whatever? So he's like, whatever I'm gonna make this company made it into a massive. I don't know if you guys have Wessels pretzels out. I've heard of before. Yeah. On Annie's, or whatever they sold that off. And he was like I'm going to do the same thing that they're doing fast casual for Mexican food sandwiches. I'm gonna do that for pizza pizza's one of the largest consume things in America. Like, the the customer wants to have more of an experience in the restaurant. They wanna go down. They wanna customized. They wanna have a personal say what's going on their pizza, and they also want to watch that it's being made in front of. Them because that puts on the totally perspective of being healthy, fresh all that stuff. And I was like look I was working for John Davis who's a producer who made predator with my dad. He's a legendary producer. He's also into the investment into the restaurant space, and I was interning for him throughout the summers in high school in Rick came and told him about the idea he was an investor, and I was like I wanna get in. This is great. I'm going to be going to college in two years. This thing will blow, but college campuses, you're talking about a pizza that is fresh and made for someone with a soda pop and chips, that's all under what's him. Yeah. Yeah. That's legit. Like, yeah. That's people are going to pay that that's ten dollars for all of that in or under our simple pizza pies were five sixty five, you know. And and I was like I'm in like get me in the next summer when worked for Rick Russo. Who's a billionaire real estate tycoon owns the grove, Americana? The passage all in Los Angeles. I worked for him. And then we open our first one my first one so invested in the overall corporate company company, and now we have just over three hundred stores, and I brought my own to right outside the grove, then I went to USC in opened USC location under the apartment building that I was living in at USC so two of my own stores, and we have over three hundred stores now going on your own stores of challenge that the majority listeners just know these are these are guys who are starting out and gals whereas entrepreneurs so you open one in the building in USC. Yeah. I have a story with that. Yeah. A real quick talk about finding in operator, right and managing health this part, by the way. So when I say my stores, I don't mean that I'm I'm the one that's in there making sure that the cheese doesn't run out. And then go backstage and get the cheese the sauce or making sure that the door isn't, you know, hitting the the waiter on the kneecap and getting sued the next day, you know, stuff like that you have an operator. You gotta find an operator. That's, you know, run other businesses or for other college students that are out there that you're you're working at your, you know, your wingstop your subway, your whatever if you're making your way up in that rankings. And by the way, I understand that it sucks in the beginning the next year the next year, you're moving up, we as we go and poke those types of people if you've got your hands dirty in the business for few years, you're understanding, you know, how the the all the workers doing how the operating is going. How the flow how the traffic all that? And you're ready for the next step. We take the risk on those kinds of of people. But just to go back to it. Yes. So we have an operator. You know, blaze helps with if you're a person that has the division of Los Angeles. Or if you're out here, and you have Columbus, and you have to open X amount of stores next month years, usually we'll have like an overall operator manager that looks over X amount of stores, and you'll have the regional ones that are specific for stores, and then you'll have kind of so forth so forth under that. But the USC was funny because going back to how you're talking about with school. And like how much is is school really impacting you how much learning and stuff like that. I was taking business operations. I graduated USC by the way with with a business degree in cinematic arts minor, and and also the theater, but I was in the business operations class. And I remember we were with the teacher and should a big whiteboard and showing bottlenecks, you know, the formula for that. And and how if blaze pizza had right here was all the cheese. And the next thing was the person doing the sauces and the next person was the one cooking. You know? How do you find out why traffic in my? Align. What's thing is the bottleneck what's slowing it down? And she was doing these formulas, and she was showing the X over this and the twelve and this is you divide that and we'll in that's how you figure it out. And I was like I went to trial. Let's go to Blace. Let's go to my store down the street. You can take the students there. You can see what's holding up or not, and you can go and mix around you can tell the people to screw up something if you want so people can understand, but being their first Hanley watching that then you can totally understand it in a different setting in a different way. So we did I went and took the whole class for pizzas and stuff. And there's way which which was cool. But it's just a totally different way to learn and be their first Hanley. But I don't know if that answered your question off on a their off that because you do have a a degree in business you've been around all these people that have been great at businesses. Like, did you see really teach you anything this it did? And by the way. Maybe colleges get pissed at me for saying this. But one of the most important, oh, they're probably. One of the most important things about college. Yeah. Isn't sitting in that classroom? Yeah. It's who's sitting next to you in that classroom. The people you meeting you're going out to the to the bar. And you're getting drinks was so cool. Who is it that you're getting that drinks with you know, who is that? There's so many businesses that are started at colleges not because they learn XYZ in the classroom. They've applied it, but rather because they've met hungry. Other people at school that are ready to start that business that are ready to blow up that want to go into this space or that space in the go together cohesively, and they create these businesses, you know, so a lot of the college stuff is networking who you're gonna meet. I mean, I've done business from kids that I've met with at school. So I mean from them they met me, we made a happy marriage and business. But yeah, I mean, I don't want to degrade school. I've learned tons from it. But I'm also very fortunate that my parents took me through school. There's a lot of kids out there. Like, you guys talked about in the beginning that are getting student loans that are going out there, and it's it's unfair for how much. How much risk they're setting them up with four years later when they're ready to go out to the workspace. And they have all these student loans to pay off its have house payments man, and they're getting pay forty g you know. And that's that's where we're like trying to say actually, you probably know this because I haven't talked to you about it. I'm actually teaching college class state on social media and content marketing just because I was talking all this shit about school, which we kind of talk a lot about here on this podcast, and they put me on the board because I went to one year school. They're advocate one year excise special, and I was on the board, and I'm talking all this shit. And I said, you know, what I'm gonna quit talking will you let me teach a class here and just show you some real like outside the box replication shit because that's what is needed. We'll my point was is like did it feel what USC where it was closed down. But you're seeing all this other stuff outside of the classroom. That is how it works. Exactly, you know, what I'm saying mix of both totally. And I totally get like I'm so fortunate that I was able to have parents that put me through college, you know, like, that's huge. Exactly. That's huge blessing. Yeah. And I loved coach don't get me wrong. I mean, it was fun. I had a great time should've. Oh, yeah. Seen our apartment. I lived with eight other guys wall was filled with like. We were like a walking advertisement. But yeah, I met great people. I learned a lot of stuff, and I had fun. It's part of my life that I'm so happy. I did sure. But I'm not like you said in the beginning, you're Patrick shorts. You're not me. You're not the listener, whose maybe here know how having to pace and I get that. Like, I'm not telling you go to college. And I'm also saying don't go to college. But in the end of the day, it's how much work does someone want to put in. I mean, my dad in the beginning was taking classes walking into the doors at UCLA, not attending UCLA just to go and listen to the business. Professor went to the library would read the book. So he could get the business degree without having to go in be at college. There's tons of people that are success stories that didn't go to college that that have done amazing things for our world and for our country and for businesses, but everyone's different. I don't wanna say that. But, you know, listen to like Gary v he's a big guy that says like why college why go the dense stuff when you can go in, you know, start working for core, Gregory, and and. You know, max effort seventeen eighteen years old start learning about that. Being the gym learning about the grind, that's moving your way up in that world. And then one day they could be like look Corey, I'm sorry. But X company just said like, I can go and work and get this do you mind, and like it's like the apprenticeship model we've talked about it quite a bit. Like, it's starting to return that way, I think if you look at the obviously the globalization of the economy, and the way we're all connected through technology. It lends itself to modern day apprenticeship and modern day apprenticeship is all built on usable skills. Yes. So I know too many people who had to pay for college that are not sitting pretty right now, and they got jobs, but they were forty K year, and they had two hundred K and student debt, and they're gonna be paying them off to the fifty. So I don't wanna bass college either. But the fact of the matter is if you do start being an apprentice at eighteen hundred. Years old you will learn applicable fucking skills in you'll actually be able to be a fly on the wall. We always I didn't go to school, and I learned from just being a fly on the wall and looking up to people who are getting shit done and just just shut my fucking mouth, right and just operated, and I don't think any school could at taught that. So again, if I yeah, I mean, they makes sense right now just to put into perspective for maybe some of the younger guys or girls listening or not younger, whatever there's two companies that I just helped do some hires for one for example, super coffee. They're not going and saying, hey, what degree do you have? Oh, wow. You went to Harvard or you went to I'm gonna take you. You know, what you did USC for only three years instead of four new dropped out to start a business Naaman? You didn't graduate that any big? Oh, and they find all these different college campuses or around there that are the ones working working out that love fitness that are in the space that are. The consumers and then getting them as as street kind of guys that are going in promoting the brand or old them on my other company health house, which were talking about the winkle, vases and stuff like that. Like right now, they were looking for a for trainers for their location and be for someone that was a COO. The trainers wasn't even a question of. Did they go to college or not it wasn't even in our in our in our resume questions? It was where else have you worked? Sure. Your other experiences. Have you had what is your training? What are you doing everyday stuff like that same with the COO? It wasn't like, of course, if they went to Harvard, and they had this thing that they went to L Catterson. They had one of the biggest hedge funds like great. That's awesome too. I'm not degrading that. But they said, oh, I worked at orange theory for three years, then I went to glove works here. And then I went to this burned sixty store for two years. And now, I understand all the I started at the front desk. But then I was trainer that understand perations. Now, I really wanna help a company expand. I would rather choose you that's gotten your knuckles dirty. There to run our operations run our say that dude because that's really the the guys that are like that our guys like me and John that need a shot. You know what I'm saying? I was that same dude walking in the year old, man. Like, dude, I've got all this experience. I don't have this crazy resume. You know? I'm grimy Jim Guy that knows how to market this day. Right. Like in in do when he watched the, you know, the video that day, and we're going back and forth. It's like, but that's that's good to hear you. Because if these other head, you know, these other people of power of some degree in business start to recognize that to so many more guys that can come up, dude and many more guys. And I think it's harder to if you're a founder it's harder to mold someone who is had either a high ranking degree or some form of mild success because they think they know shit, and when it's your fucking business. You know, it's not like, you're. Tyrant. Right. But they do need to work within the protocols, and and the parameters of the business when you mold young people who are hungry. They they got their eyes wide open and I'll take initiative and dudes who wanna learn over a piece of paper and a degree with a fucking, dude. Twenty four and by the way. Yeah. That's the American dream in my damn, right? You're in my opinion. It used to be kind of it's still is that. But like what my dad was what he did coming over as an immigrant coming to this country working his ass off getting, you know, living the American dream that was American dream today, in my opinion. It's doing what you want and going and being hungry. And and, you know, having a clear path in comes down to passion. If those people like you just talked about if you're getting gritty, and you have passion for the fitness industry. Let's just stick with that. And you're working this and this gym because you love it, then you're working this in this desk at the gym because you love and you want to go and train X amount hours for free because you're working there. If you're doing that, then you're going to open up. Operating other stores in that's your passion. It's fitness. You're gonna make it. You don't have to the college. Because that's what you wanna do your so set on that specific area. That's the American dream. You should be having to do what you love in. That will bring the career in the success after that money skew money skews up for these young guys. But I want to touch on something once if you experienced this yet, we talk a lot about when you get to a certain point, and you're managing people working with people or even dealing with vendors. There's a certain level of humanity that I think business forces you to lose or a callousness that needs to come about you in a respectful way to just hold people accountable and get things done in it feels. I don't know if you felt this kind of inhuman because you have to be a taskmaster not a friend to people have you faced that yet. It's interesting because I always hear the kind of tagline of like don't don't do business with your friends because it always ends up kind of bad or you get into kind of headbutting things again to go back on the super coffee thing. I asked them that specific question before I invest because it's three brothers, and they live together they live in the we work in New York City. They work in the we work in New York City that go down a floor. They go to the other room. They all three work together. They're here the travel like do you ever? Do you guys ever getting arguments or fights about that each or whatever like scream at you know, you didn't do your job this like no it really helped us become closer together and get our shit dumb. Because we don't wanna let down our our brother. We don't wanna let common situation it is. It is. I just find for yet. But I, but I understand that. I mean, it's a tough question. Because again, there's different everyone flex on anybody Patrick not like actual flex. But you know, what? I mean, like say, look, you're. Yeah. Look, there's there's different ways of going at it. I think I think like, okay, if it happens more and more and more than maybe there is that point where you need to quote unquote flex and someone get like me yelling at someone isn't going to do anything. If you're going out of being very specific fire. Somebody moving somebody out like if you had to like, yeah. Yeah. Of course. And but I it's never like after the first time. Sure. Something's not going. Well, I say like, you know, what did your done? I can't like like, no. Because then it's going to be a distraction for the company for the business for me to go look for someone else or get my operator to go find another manager or something like that all that takes away from the business. So give the person another chance. I mean, we've had that with our our specific stores. We've had that with other everyone goes through hardship and instrument everyone, you guys just said you're in your third year in the second year was such a learning. Yes, learning you as you're learning as a company, you're getting better, you're growing as a person you're going as John days. Oh sizzler. Earning. All are alerted for some other. Yeah. That's the pictures. Sorry. But no, I don't I don't think that that's like a great tactic to go in like, just, you know, again, not yelling. But if someone did such and such thing wrong, like help them understand it see how they can fix that. And then if they go in the future, and it's veteran stuff than great. If not then we'll work on that. But you know, like my dad always said, it's like a failures not a failure. If you're doing it over and over and over the same thing, that's a failure. But if you're learning from that, and you're switching things and your changing your growing as a person that's failure to lessen sure difference. But as you let's say scale up as someone who's you know, thrown out seeds to be right. And and you got a full plate. Do you? Do you feel like you just have to mean Cobra talk about this all the time? Like the word confrontation. I think it's a negative connotation because confrontation is to confront it. Doesn't mean we're mad. It doesn't mean we're swearing or yelling. Do you find at this point in your career? It's difficult to sit someone down look dead in the eye, and listen, that's not how it goes here. Yeah. Let's talk about how we could just make just had that just had that few weeks ago. Is it fun to do? No awkward yet. Yeah. Yeah. I'm not gonna say like it's easy to do fun. Now. It's awkward like, especially if you know the person, and if you're close to them it's awkward, and that was this scenario, by the way, I'm not gonna get into specifics. But it was someone that was of a closer and a friend and stuff like that. And it was just like went with the other two partners in the room. Hey, man. This is what we expected this. What we had talked about this stuff didn't happen. So how are we gonna fix this for the future said this doesn't happen again because we can't go through that it made us have to do extra work and not be able to focus on what we needed to focus on. Right. Love in by the way, the first few minutes of it was just like you said, it was kind of cringe awkward and afterwards. I think the person was happy. I think we were happy because it was very transparent. And if we didn't do it. Probably a month or two down the road from now or three or four months from now, we would have said, oh my God. Why didn't we do that? It's happening again, of course. And I think that's the reason I brought up is because that's the ceiling for a lot of people as businessmen because that level of uncomfortable. Whether you're friends with the person cool with them or not confrontation is kind of counterintuitive people just aren't used to it. So the try to avoid it as long as possible. And we always talk about, you know, Ray Dalia, one of the greatest investors ever who recently wrote a book he said if he could do one thing over again, it's make hard decisions fast when someone's fucking up boom. It's not a week later. It's not a day later on the spot. And I think that is this ceiling and. Suri's? I'm talking about it just because you sound like you have a lot of fucking really cool things going on trajectory. But these are things that I think we all have to work through right? Yeah. And kind of like you said we're that person said to go back and wish you could do that like I'm probably in that boat too. I mean, maybe it happened for too long last person that I didn't that's on. But it's again, everything is learning like I'm twenty five and I have thirteen businesses now and certain things I'm still learning. I'm not I don't wanna be someone that's saying like, I know the whole world, I know, I don't like I'm learning so much about so many spaces the workout industry. I felt like I knew so much stuff about it. Because I love to work out. And I took all these products now going in on the operational side and learning about it's mind blowing. Yeah. It's it's crazy. And and yeah, it's I wanna come back to Patrick to what you said that your dad told you that was whenever we were going through all that stuff at and I had breakfast with shortly after he he said to me goes to it's all say, dude. But. He said, dude, actually, he said this. It's all how you stand back up from this. He said, look, man, he goes not everything just works out the way you want it to right. We he'd been in multiple businesses. He's had problems. I mean, every major business guy that does many businesses your father or you're doing or we're doing you're going to have hiccups some time, and he's like it's just not over because this didn't play out exactly how you wanted to. That was the first big thing I've ever been involved in and had somebody by the way, kind of like my idol leaving me. So, you know for him to say like, it's all how you respond. It's all how you stand back up Corey like your fucking, you're a fighter and winner. You didn't get out of that coal mine and just say, oh now quit, you know? So that was like really people to understand like they think they have to be this by twenty-five or by thirty or they're a fucking straight of failure. Or if one thing doesn't work not to go back to another. I just think that it's just the body a work overtime, dude. It's gotten a lot tougher going back to your question about. Social media because of that. Yeah. Yeah. Sometimes I think that too. Sometimes I'm like God. If I go back to like where I was like sixteen or eighteen and stuff, and I'm like pad. This is where you're going to be like I thought I was going to be like way more. But like, okay. Like like why? Because like you're seeing other people on social media that are have probably faking. Yeah. They've this. Or they have like you said like tap this find out how I got my red Ferrari at twenty years like, yeah. Like, whatever, bro. Whatever bro book with. That's really what's morning stuff. Right. It is. And it's really tough for a lot of people. And I think that goes back to your to like, what is the centerpiece of yourself in that for me, it always just has to come back to like tash like what am I loving to do in? That's going to intrinsically make me happy. And that's what's going to provide the success. Buckley? But that's the key extrinsic. It's it's all about inside. And that might sound weird to a lot of listeners like really this guy's in touch with his inside is female. All talk about. That's real shit. Right. And it's and it's tough trust made it is. And there's a lot of things that are like people saying like even going back, man. Like don't post that. You're not going to get this don't do that. Like, that's why I'm like always very just like myself on social media and stuff and like glasses fat cool. Yeah. Man. Like, I wanna go by some fast classes at a gas station like crazy sunglasses Patrick's known for having the crazy. Think about it right leg. I don't know what those Arbor day sound fun. References. Many people like the conversation we had a week ago with you know, who are saying well when a measure out this many posts per day, I get this many lives, and it's like a mother fucking science. That's more important to them than how they treat people, dude. It's fucking social medium in Chad. Chad expose yourself do. And I think those are the best people to follow the people that are just being the reason why my stuff is work this loan because it's just me. I know of got on the weird mix of country urban love, you know, lifting. I'm like, but I've just put it out there because it's just what it is. Yeah. I'm not trying to be in like the waves of going through that business thing build knees business like dude. It's just what it is. But I think I think you show in that side is huge factoring because people are just going to only think something X, they don't really get a chance to know you right in this for all the listeners that think that all those people like you're just seeing the the one post or the one second of their light. You have no idea what other people are highlight reels. So don't worry. If you're struggling like ice struggle. I think everybody struggles along the path and like that's fine, and that's normal and to kind of go back to what you were saying like the pay. Patients. That's probably one of the things that I'm the worst at in. Like I recognize that like everyone wants like quick quick quick. Like, how do we get quick every satisfication? How do I do this? How do do that that's quick? And like Warren Buffett is always the person. That's like I was just I like Warren. How'd you get? So rich duty made is I like one hundred forty eight everyone's focus on getting money like quick like I'm all about the slow their longer term like so just letting it go and grow and stuff like that. The longer term stuff. The success will come if you're if you're just doing your work in focusing on what you wanna do. But it is tough. I'm not a patient person. And I try to focus in work on that. But. Yeah. I mean, everyone wants their business to blow up the next never blows up when you think it's supposed to. That's right. I used to think like why I've been doing all this shit should have been so huge. Starring Matt list. And it's not that. Those are all based on our thoughts based on reality. And I think outside of a burn rate out side of big time investment. It's like why do people fail because they quit. And they stop adjusting stop using. Oh shit max out for didn't work for two years out throw. That's why this if we figured out. What are we missing? What do our customers want? I think our expert had a good story about that. Reform like redid all their packaging and advertising when they were bottoming out, and they were like like either done or we give this try site with three hundred five hundred hundred and it's got the the label has the stuff right on the fright. It's class only. Switch of a little something. But yeah, I mean, there's a lot of things that that the old man is is kind of top me about sure in that world. That's definitely helped me and. There's other people out there that can obviously help you something like this podcast as well. But a lot of people don't have someone that's kind of whispering in their everyday living. And that saying like, no do this this and this or do that? And that's why I think these podcasts in some people on Instagram that are doing that are really great because they are a little tweak of, hey, this is a motivational thing for you to get you through that day or through that slump through that downtime or through that plateau of your business, keep pushing keep going, but. Yeah. I think a huge thing goals. Yup. You know, having him set and having out there I'll front right? And that's that's a big thing that I started doing a few years ago because my dad told me to start doing it and said that he was always doing it. And that's like that's something. I shared with my followers like, you know, if you go and you go in the annals of Patrick Schwarzenegger's, Instagram. It's mostly like seventy something percent girls in the twenty-something age, whatever. And I was like I'm interested in business. I'm gonna post this. I'm going to post anyway, my goals. That's what like in. Maybe one person. Will learn something from it and grow like then that success in me. And like so many people afterwards hit me up and DM me and stuff like that saying, thank you so much. I'm gonna go right? My I just did a whole thing of like me writing my goals putting them right next to my bed. So that when I wake up that's the first thing that I look at. And it's like I have the log line for my year. Then I have all the different things that I want to focus on whether that's by the way, not just financial like finances. Cool faith grape friends, great family, grit, like different parts of my life that I've goals. Want wanna grow towards and get better at and I think if people have that in my dad's a huge believer of like he would always ask me. I don't know if he asked you probably before he did business was like, hey, Corey you could fall asleep right now. And have a perfect dream. Where does that what does that take Cory to in X amount of years? Gotcha. In like, what are you going to do every day to get to that? You know, like what's that perfect scenario and people were like, oh, what I wanted to be, you know, see ova common. It's like so silly. That's you know, what you want. Yeah. Are you gonna get? Yeah. And there's a huge difference, which I've noticed this year in my life than the past years is interests verse commitment, I was always very interested in complicating my goals. But last year, I wasn't waking up at five thirty or six AM. I was waking up at seven thirty going to the gym doing my day. Doing my investments there were a lot of things that in twenty eight I didn't accomplish there. A lot of things I did. But I went back and said, okay, why am I? Not accomplishing those things as intentional. That's why. Yeah. I wasn't committed. I wasn't like, okay. I need to do this. I need to wake up at five or I'm I need a white my ass up 'em. So that I have this much time to go do that. My dad has a famous line in me, which is sleep faster. That's a famous, you know, it's like I'm like, dad. What do you mean? I need my eight. Okay. So sleep faster seven get that extra hour to do something else. Okay. It's funny, but people being committed versus interested as my tagline like this year, and it's extremely helped me and just the two months that it's been in twenty nineteen. But to really be okay. What am I doing today? How am I gonna fully commit that me? And I don't get that extra hour of sleep. I have to get a breakfast thing on the go instead of going and sitting down he's ready to want to do. Yeah. That's a big thing. So for anyone that's listening in whether you're saying, oh, Patrick is has his wealth thing or dozen or I'm not in this situation. Like be committed to where you wanna go. Don't be interested in it because your interest. Don't don't get you there. That's really cool apps. Absolutely, man. It's it's execution. You know what I'm saying? We all can come up with a great idea laid out conceptualize it even try to bring it to market. But. Cute. Yeah. And you better be ready for eighteen hour days because if you're not someone else's someone else. All while you're not accomplishing your goals someone else's. You're not setting my daddy. So who say that to me, man, man? Sometimes meet him in the morning or something and you would go out to a bar. Get some drinks. Whatever time you go to bed. I two time to get up. I don't know. I don't know maybe ten or something. I'm not feeling that great. You know, what, you know, while you're at that bar from eleven to two spoonful, you were getting that cocktail for fifteen bucks someone else's in the library studying. Yeah. And I was like, thanks. My morning a little bit worse. But that's what he does such a good job of in. That's li- pressure on what you're spitting right now between that and you develop in yourself being your friend this law, man. I'm proud of you, do I think it'd be excited starting where it is just starting. That's that's what I'm saying to see where it's going to send to is is going to be fun. We gotta do this podcast every year to see how things change so funny. I was telling John this that because my career really started here, essentially, you know, I was selling programs in nineteen ninety nine for Lucy to to get a VIP ticket at the Arnold classic. And so when I when I come here every year that is what I do Patrick is kind of reflect on on where my career's been. So you gotta remember I'm standing outside of the expo selling programs, get VIP thing. So I get to take a picture a polaroid with your dad to have some more still and to go then to ascend to be able to give the trophy with them on stage. The main spa. Monsour having that thing coming back as another company then going back to a big sponsor like it's been a twenty year amazing rollercoaster. But still rooted in this is what I love to do every year. Keep coming back in only missed one year in nineteen years. It's unbelievable. I've yet missed one. Elsewhere this guy before we let him down here. I just want. I won't everyone listening to kinda sometimes people, you know, they listen, but they don't here. Yeah. And I was really trying to hear what you were saying. Right. You know, and appreciate your honesty. Thanks fan. I appreciate you guys having me on and for anybody. That's out there. That's listening just keep truck. And man, it's no other way. If you're in college, keep going, if you're thinking about college decide where you're wanting to go if you don't know where you're wanting to go keep doing things that you love and that'll probably find out where you wanna go. Chase your small. Yeah. Just it's. Long-life? Hopefully, it's a long life. All right. So we always end the podcast and a great fashion. Don't it scared. Neighbors around Patrick swertz Hager. Fos go can the podcast p stopped Lou podcast. Ooh podcast.

Who's also one of the film's stars. Vivian played by handley robinson. A newly minted eleventh grader faced with the challenge of writing a college admissions essay realizes she doesn't have particularly passionate feelings about anything. What do sixteen-year-olds care about. She asks her mother. Lisa played bipolar with schoolgirl earnestness. Lisa who's raising vivian. On her own says that when she was sixteen all she cared about was smashing the patriarchy and burning it all down. Then vivian recalls parts of a song. Her mother used to sing to her. A line from bikini kills rebel girl. That girl she holds her head up so high and inspiration hits with the karang of a power cord. She drags out her mother's battered old leather jacket as well as an old suitcase. Filled with scrappy feminist zine 's and a second generation riot girl is born for. Vivian radiant. Kind a little naive. The style may come before the substance. But that's partly how rock and roll works. Once she starts to think about it she sees that there's a lot to be angry about even just within the walls of her school. She sees how the schools arrogant entitled football star played. By patrick schwarzenegger simultaneously comes onto and bullies a class newcomer. Lucy played by alicia pasco. Pain a- his smirke condescension is pure sexist gas lighting yet. Vivian can't yet see it for what it is. She urges lucy to ignore him noting that he'll just move onto someone else advice that lucy rightly rails against the guys at the school also have an elaborate rating system that they send around semi surreptitiously at the beginning of each school year sorting their female classmates into categories include best rack and future mill f- the schools had principal shelley played by marcia. Gay harden turns a blind eye to the boys behavior even when lucy reports mitchell for harassment she flutters nervously at the mere use of the word knowing. It will only make more work for her as vivian. Thinks more about what she sees at school. Her slow walk toward radicalization speeds up inspired by lisa's collection of scenes. She makes her own. Its name inspired by one of principle. Shelley's old timey expressions is moxie and secretly leaves a stack in the girls bathroom before long. Vivians diy enterprise has galvanized her female classmates. They're frustrated too. They just haven't been able to find an outlet for their feelings. Vivians confidence grows.

Moxie works relatively well until the end. Vivians new heightened. Consciousness comes with dark side. It makes her a total pain in the ass particularly at home. Where lisa good modern mom that she is recognizes in her daughter the same of anger and frustration she wants fouled but the story leaves most of its most potentially interesting ideas on the table. Where's the line between political radicalization and being a flexible forgiving human being in the world. The movie relies far too. Heavily on slogans stressing the importance of what we reflexively call. Speaking your truth without recognizing that speaking out is a complex beginning not a triumphant solution late in the game almost as an afterthought the movie introduces a rape subplot. Instead of being addressed with the sensitivity requires this angle of the story exists only as a catalyst for a weirdly unrealistic and far too facile plot. Wrapup then mom and daughter having recently fought rap. One another in a hug each asserting. How inspired she is by the other. Moxie kicks off as shoutout to riot. Girls spirit only to give us an ending written in the cursive script of an inspirational mog. The walk from being a zine maker to scrap booker as apparently a short one.

GSMC Movie Podcast Episode 267: Walking 2 America with Moxie

"Can't decide in torn between a romantic comedy action or an indie film to watch for the weekend. Well well golden state media concepts movie. Podcast is your alternate guide to the latest movies. Join us as we dissect the latest. On the block busters. It's the golden state media. Concept's movie podcast Hello hello hello and welcome everybody to the gsm see movie podcasts. Brought to you by the gmc podcast network. And i'm still coming to you from the desolate void. That is the film industry. At this point. It has been said a million times. So i'm not gonna go too deep into it. But calvin has taken its toll on this industry as it has every other one and right now at the time recording this stretch between the end of february and pretty much through the middle of march is a time that is gonna be rough for the film buffs with so many films being released early in the year. So they're eligible for award season and others being set for release later in the year so they have the best chance of having the most audience members turning out to go see them in theaters. Right now is a bit of a rough patch but to all the movie lovers out there. Don't be discouraged. I see it as my job to find the best of the best. An intern inform. What is out there. And what is worth seeing so today. I'm going to be taking a look at different films. From bearing genres the first is going to be netflix's new release moxie which is set to be released. March third in his directed by amy poehler. The second will be the much anticipated long awaited. Follow up to coming to america coming to the number america which is set to be released on march via amazon prime video and the final film. I will be discussing is actually set to be released only in theaters so for the first time. I'm actually able to hype up a film being released on the big screen and that will be chaos. Walking set to be released march fifth in theaters. I max and while movie theaters are starting to open up in more and more places around the country for example new york is going to be allowing twenty five percent capacity in its theaters starting march fifth. I'm going to spend the final segment today talking about the streaming services that offer the best movies and i know there's been an absolute boom in streaming services. Viacom is coming out with paramount plus later in march but i wanna take a look at the mainstreaming services like disney plus netflix. Hbo max and go through them and tell you which ones offer the best value and are providing the best movie content so be sure to stick around to the end. You definitely don't want to miss that. And the first film i will be diving into. Today is moxley scheduled to be released on. Netflix march third. This film is directed by amy poehler. And when i first saw that this would be a teen movie directed by amy poehler. I thought it was gonna be just like mean girls as her close friend. Tina fey directed that movie but moxie appears to be the other side of the coin the film centers around a young girl who is fed up with the way that there is a double standard school with the way teenage boys are able to treat teenage girls and essentially get away with it and how she is left with very little recourse on how to address those issues. The lead care vivian. Carter is played by hadley robinson who is newcomer as are many of the actors in this film. She's the daughter of a polar character lisa. And it's really in that mother daughter relationship where had character. Vivian finds an answer to problem and ways to cope with this hostile environment. That is her high school. You see amy bowlers. Character lisa was heavily engaged in protesting when she was her daughter's age so one night. Vivian a box of old mementos from these experiences and taking a look at it she begins to ask your mother questions about her experience road testing things that she deemed to be unjust. And that is essentially how. Amy poehler summed up the movie in an interview to entertainment weekly. She said it's about a young girl who is seeing all of these things happening at her high school and realizes she wants to participate in trying to make a change but she isn't sure how and that's pretty app. Summary of the movie in it also gives you insight into why the movie is titled what it's titled while this film is adapted from book by jennifer matthew nevertheless moxie religious capsulize. What this film has vowed into one word. And i believe they're using the definition that means britain determination and it's conceivable to think that they're trying to use all the meetings of the word moxie including the one that means energy pep and know-how because when it comes down to it. This film is about a group of teenage girls. Trying to change the status quo and essentially usher in a culture shift. And it's not hard to see. Why someone like amy poehler would attach yourself to a film like this. I'm not sure many people know this. But amy poehler has a nonprofit organization called amy poehler smart girls and the mission of that organization is to help. Young teenage girls find their authentic. Self which is such a challenge for any person their formative years to really know who they are in establishing identity and high school wallets full of a lot of great things. It can also be a place where people run into a lot of negatives that make them doubt they are in caused them to have a negative view on who they are so i think it's really essential that there are films like this in there are organizations like the one that police founded and if anyone's interested in checking that out the website. Is amy smart. Girls dot com but back to the film at hand. I personally am very interested to see. This film will do in terms of constructing the filmmakers believe the status quo is an how they deconstruct that again. This film is set to be released on netflix. Smarter and just from washing the trailer. You can get a good sense of the world that this young girl. Vivian is happening in the trailer. She for lack of better term is sexually harassed by the main antagonist. Who was actually played by. Arnold schwarzenegger son patrick schwarzenegger and she takes this issue to the principal who refers to the incident as he was bothering her and when she says he was sexually harassing me she says don't say that word because then i'll have to fill out a whole bunch of paperwork so right there. They're showing the hypocrisy of society in general of powerful woman who is the principal of a school is approached by of vulnerable young woman looking for help. And she is essentially told yeah. There's not much we can do about it. And that's just the way things are and this is clearly something we see in contemporary society. With the metoo moment the time is up movement was at one time just written off as boys will be boys or stuff that happens is really being held under the microscope. And again the way that this film is gonna four trae. Those behaviors put them under. The microscope showed the consequences or lack thereof is gonna make for a very compelling story another compelling aspect of this movie is the fact that so many of the cast members are relative unknowns. Amy poehler as i said. Plays the mother of the main character. Ike barunholtz holtz's in it. As i'm sure most people probably know him from mad. Tv if you ever watched it. Clark gregg who most people know as agent colson from marvel cinematic universe and this show agents of shield. Sydney park is in it. As well and most audiences will know her from the walking dead and marcia. Gay harden is in the film as well who has had such diverse career. From being in the robin williams. Movie flubber to starring in the fifty shades of grey franchise so those are probably the most well-known actors in the film but again they're playing adults in a high school movie so at the very best. They're gonna have supporting or ancillary roles to the main cast. The bulk of responsibility to tell. This story is gonna fall on very young very inexperienced cast. As i said hadley robinson plays the lead role of vivian carter. And she's had a few supporting roles in films like little women and she is probably best known for being part of the amazon prime video series utopia so it will be interesting to see how she fares in her first leading role. Another relatively unknown cast member is josephine. Langford who has a couple of credits to earn an including the film adaptations of the after book series Series of romantic novels where she actually plays tessie young for which she has won a teen choice award so she has a little bit of film reputation. But it's always interesting to see fresh faces take on new roles and tell new and exciting stories another cast member in this film. Who is completely fresh-faced is lauren. Cy who is actually making her film debut prior to this she was actually a comic book. Illustrator doing several works for marvel. I guess something that's going to become a staple of my podcast is relating things back to my home state of massachusetts. Her aunt is actually a restaurant tour here and she owns a restaurant called the blue dragon in boston. Seaport area and if you know the area at all you know it's pretty hard to miss. Given their is a dragon on the sidewalk outside so again it all relates back to massachusetts but lawrence. i will be making her film debut. And probably the most recognizable name in. This film will be schwarzenegger patrick's sports negative. That is who is. Obviously the son of arnold schwarzenegger and maria shriver. And he's without a doubt the most experienced of the young cast members given that he made his film debut all the way back in two thousand. Six's bench warmers. Where he played jockeyed number three so. This film boasts exciting. Young cast of characters supported by a number of season comedy veterans. So it is going to be very interesting to see a film that is taking on such a heavy issue as self identity and in a lot of ways gender discrimination while also trying to tell the line end deliver last to the audience. But i think with this cast and the towns directing of any bowler. They're going to be able to deliver and once again. I think this is just a another tribute to the quality of product. That netflix pumps out. I don't know if it's the fact that they have spheres such good market research or because they were the only online streaming platform there was for such a long time that they have data points on. What every single audience likes would movies to make since they adventured into creating their own original works whether they have been led to last leg. The ridiculous six or if they've been academy award nominated films like marriage story. Netflix seems to really know resonates with audiences nowadays and it will be interesting to see how that continues with the fact that there are so many platforms out there now whether it's peacock paramount plus which is being released. Hbo max which may be delivering the highest production value for their original content but despite all those competitors. Netflix is still the original. And it's still turning out quality material and hopefully moxie will be no exception of that with amy poehler directing. This is only her second director oriel feature after her directorial debut in wine country. It will be interesting to see her on the other side of the camera having seen her in front of the camera for so many years. And i have great faith that her skills will translate into film. Moxie which once again will be released on. Netflix march third. So be sure to check it out especially if you are a fan of films that take on modern contemporary issues and this film is having the issue of sexual harassment and the implications of having to deal with that takes center stage and just from the trailer. You can see a few ways on how this issue manifest itself in american culture like i said earlier with the scene where vivians character takes her issue to the principal. In what you think would be a moment where a fellow female character would empathize and relate to the main characters struggle. It is pretty much the opposite where the principles sees the real issue here being that she has to deal with something like this and just the hypocrisy of something like that. Wear a fairly serious issue is pretty much dismissed. Out of hand i believe is a commentary on the generational. Divide about an issue like this where the older principal who is a part of the system and grew up under different standards and expectations. Pretty much just sees this as something that is bound to happen and ultimately isn't such a big deal whereas vivian scherzer is part of a new generation who is trying to change the status quo and really establish that this is unacceptable behavior so the dynamics between characters of different generations and how they interact and deal with the issues. That are going to be tackled in this film. I think he's gonna be one of the most compelling aspects of it again. We are living in a time where behavior that at one point was commonplace and was pretty much par for the course is now being put under the microscope. To the point in many ways it's being phased out of modern society and there are tangible repercussions for actions like sexual harassment and how there is now live action adaptation portraying that issue in moxie which amy poehler describes as a coming of age film where it is mainly about young women finding their voice and finding out what they are angry about and what they wanna change so seeing a film that tackles that issue and his toward an audience of young women compelling to see the reaction that people have to it and once again audiences will be able to react to this movie when it debuts march third on netflix. The film stars had the robinson josephine lankford. Laura cy patrick schwarzenegger amy poehler. Who also doubles as the director. Ike barunholtz maurice gay harden and clark gregg and moxie will be charged with the difficult task of being both a thought provoking drama and an enjoyable comedy so it is going to be interesting to see the balance that the film strikes in that regard right now we are going to be taking a little break but be sure to stick around as coming up. We're gonna be talking about the film set to be released in theaters in amax chaos. Walking it has all the elements to be a big blockbuster.

The next film. I want to discuss was one that has the billing of a big blockbuster film and is set to be released in theaters march fifth and that is chaos walk and it has been in development. Hell for going on a decade at this point. This is an adaptation of the first book in the cast. Walking trilogy by patrick ness. Which is the knife. never letting go. It was announced all the way back in two thousand eleven and here we are a decade later with the film only now being released and this film seemed like it went through every issue under the sun from scripting issues with the script has to be rewritten with multiple people being brought in to write and rewrite the script multiple times which took almost five years until a director was finally announced doug liman who is probably best known for directing the bourne identity with chaos walking allowing him to return to his action movie routes but even with experienced director like liman in the picture. This film has been delayed for almost four years given that its principal photography wrapped up in two thousand seventeen. Anna was originally set to be released march first of two thousand nineteen but due to the critical response from test audiences pulled from release that year and has been undergoing reshoots ever since and here. We are awesome so many years later with itself to make. It's the admiral debut. In america march fifth. It did make its world premiere february twenty fourth in south korea. And like i said in the intro. This just feels like a movie with big blockbuster elements going for while. I'm unfamiliar with the cast walking scifi novels. Doing research for this podcast. I did find out that they have a huge fan base. And i guess that this first film will be the determining factor on if the second to votes in the franchise will be adapted and it does have a lot of positive elements going for it. In addition to the director. Doug liman the main stars of the film. Are tom holland. Which everyone knows from the marvel cinematic universe where he plays spiderman daisy ridley as the other star everyone knows her from the latest star. Wars trilogy mads. Mel gibson is doing what he does best playing sinister villain and even nick jonas in this film playing his son so just from the combination of the three main cast members and guest. Nick jonas for all the fans of the jonas brothers out there this film would be worth seeing solely to see the interactions that those actors out with each other. And it's always enjoyable when films that have that big science fiction beyond this earth type feel to it still have elements to enjoy beyond that and the setting of. This film is fairly interesting with being set on earth in the not too distant future with daisy release character crash landing onto the planet an on this version of earth. All the women have disappeared and all the men are afflicted by something that's referred to as the noise which is a force that puts all their thoughts on display. That sounds like a not so subtle allegory to social media. But we'll go with it being this powerful mysterious force that they have to deal with this film and for those you thinking. The premise sounds a little outlandish. That's kind what i'm thinking then again. That's what a film like this supposed to be doing putting us in out of this world situations and here's hoping it doesn't turn out to be a flop given up. The budget was over. A hundred and twenty five million and the runtime on. This film is a little surprising. Given that big sci fi fantasy epics like this tend to be on the longer side. It's only one hundred and nine minutes so it isn't on the short side but if you have time are fan of either tom. Hollander deservedly definitely check it out is film is actually going to be released in theaters anna nymex. So if you've been looking for a reason to get back in the movie theater and you are looking for something in the action adventure category. Definitely check out cass walk and if this adaptation is anything like the book series. It should be fairly thought. Provoking the title of this series comes from a line in the first book which is as follows. The noise is a man unfiltered and without a filter. A man is just chaos walking again. The noise in this film is this force that essentially just projects someone's thoughts without their control. And i said earlier. It's sort of allegory to social media. But that is kind of what our society is evolving into where people just throw out. Whatever thinking at the moment without a second thought and patrick nest the author of the original trilogy which this film is based off of is making the commentary. that's just utter chaos and it will be interesting to see how the two main characters played again by tom. All days ridley cope with this way of life and the interpretation that has made about how to adolescence are dealing with living in a world where everything's completely unfiltered with people's most private inner thoughts pretty much being on display for everyone to see and of course. This is an extreme exaggeration of the role. Social media has an our society. It's not like social media and posting sharing. Something people are doing against their will as it is in the world that has created. But the idea that you're private most intimate thoughts can basically be broadcast to the world without even realizing the implications of what that is gonna cause is something that i think is pretty overlooked in our society and i'm pretty interested to see how that is tackled in this film. And there's a whole other subplot about the dystopia in society eleven. But i'm really interested just to see the concept of not being able to conceal your thoughts in those being as accessible as seeing your face in this setting 'cause i think that by itself is a pretty compelling plot device in it will be interesting just to see how that plays a role in the story and it makes me wonder what it would be like if that was the way things were. I agree that in many ways it would be chaos not being able to conceal continue thoughts. I mean just imagining a world without private cloud would be pretty bleak but then again could be somewhat liberating to live in a world where you don't have to hide your truth thoughts or feelings on things. Good simplify log in terms of just relationships with people you disdain which everyone has in some shape or form where you have to put up an appearance for someone that you really don't care for that because we live in a society you are expected to the polite and respectful if we lived in a world like this could simplify that out and you only have to be around people you actually enjoy and people. You're comfortable sharing your innermost thoughts with now. I'm sure wouldn't be as simplistic as that and a lot. More conflicts would arise. But it's nice to think that it's nice to imagine a world where you can eliminate meaningless relationships like that Will down to the people who you are comfortable hearing your innermost and private thoughts. So it's a very interesting concept that patrick ness cultivated for his book series the first of which the knife of never letting go which chaos walking is the adaptation of in addition to the subsequent ones the asking answer which is the second installment in his book franchise and monsters of men. Now i'm sure the success of this film is going to determine on whether or not there will be adaptation of the next two books made which i find pretty strange given the criteria that hollywood studios look for when they're making movies nowadays. This is a story that has a presold audience from people that have read the books. It has the potential to be turned into a franchise to get people invest in the long haul and get them coming back multiple times and it has two of the most recognizable young actors on the planet in the leading roles in tom holland. Daisy ridley. Additionally it has a pretty fresh and original concept going for which just begs the question. Why did it take five years ago. Script written when there's already source material in a five hundred page book live than after that. When the original principal photography had wrapped they had to scrap the original and go through extensive reshoots that took almost two years which resulted in the films overall release being pushed back by almost a full two years which really does make me wonder what this film hasn't in store as a whole books garnered largely positive reviews but it is all too common for a great source material that is being translated to the big screen experiences a lot of issues in translating the story from one medium to the other and i really hope. That isn't the case with this adaptation. Hopefully it's not 'cause the author of the books. Patrick ness ultimately was brought in to help finish writing the final script and this film could play an important role in just reopening the theories street getting people back into the theater again. This film is set to be released on march fifth. And that's the same day that new york city is gonna start welcoming back audiences into their theaters at twenty five percent capacity again. It's not going to be like a knock down drag out blockbuster bud having people in the theaters is gonna meet a lot to the film industry and having quality movies in the theaters for people to go see is of the utmost importance so when i see a film like this that has to incredibly young pocket superstars on it is the first installment of a trilogy. I'm definitely rooting for it. To at least lebron's villain and as of right now there is no insight into how the film has performed. There are no reviews on rotten tomatoes. Which i just wanna clarify. I'm not one of these people that treats rotten tomatoes like it is the holy grail of movie reviews. They're burying consistent and additionally to anyone out there. Don't judge a movie based off what someone else has said about it. See a movie and form your own opinion and for this one. I'm really hoping for the best. I think tom holland. In daisy's relief are two actors with incredibly bright futures ahead of them mads. Malka nsen is probably best when he's in the role of the guy and he gets to take on the role of a very compelling character in this one and it'll be interesting to see. Nick jonas in an acting role not terribly familiar with the jonas brothers music. But i think it's always interesting when stars crossover. I know he does have some acting experience in those algo with calling them. Wholesome disney channel movies camp rock. So it'll be interesting to see how it fares in a more serious senate and to give a quick synopsis of that setting. The film cast walking based off the first installment of the chaos. Walking trilogy by. Patrick ness is set in a dystopia future earth where all the women have died and all the men on the planet are plagued by this force called the noise which is essentially the inability to keep your thoughts private so in this fictional earth what someone is thinking internally is displayed to the people around them and have absolutely no control over it and in this world dizzy released character is from a different planet. She crash lands onto earth and she encounters tom haunts character. Meanwhile mads milkins character. Is the ruler of this dystopia in society and nick jonas places son so there are going to be a lot of interesting relationship dynamics where the noise manifest itself. I assume tom holland. In daisy released character are supposed to be romantically involved. So it's gonna be interesting tom. Holland's character having romantic thoughts about someone and being unable to keep it private from them and the other main relationship in this film. Mads mickelson's character and nick. Jonas playing a father and son it will be interesting to see that dynamic of not being able to conceal anything from your father or conversely a son being completely aware of his father's true feelings about him. I think that concept in another itself is gonna be worth exploring in this film. And i know i touched on that idea a little bit on if the noise was president in the real world annual unable to conceal your innermost thoughts to the people around you. I really do think there would be some positives that come of it from simply knowing where you stand with people and people that are super manipulative would have no legs to stand on but those examples side of course there would be negative stood not being able to have your own private thoughts. Privacy would be a thing of the past. The world series of poker would have to shut down immediately nonetheless. It's a very interesting concept to consider and it's gonna be interesting to see how it plays out in what situations people are put in in the film cows walking again. The name of this film and the book trilogy is drawn from a line in the books where they're talking about the noise and how the noise is man unfiltered and without a filter. Managers walking chaos. This calls to mind the many ideas that separates human beings from animals which is not a new topic in literature or medium by any means but it will be interesting to see the new ways that it is explored in this film and this pretty fresh concept of people being unable to keep their internal thoughts internal. I believe this is to be interpreted as an allegory to social media and just the general openness of the world today in the digital age and how the most private information people have is out there and exposed so hopefully this film can deliver on imparting of strong message to the audience as well as being entertaining so wrapping up. The film is cast walking. It will be available in theaters. an. I'm max march fifth once again it. Stars daisy ridley. Tom holland mads mikkelsen and nick. Jonas so he's been looking for a reason to go back to the movie theater. This one will only be available in theaters so be sure to check it out right now.

So if you're looking for an excuse to go back to the movie theater be sure to check it out and be sure to stick around until our final segment where we will be discussing which streaming platforms provide the best movie content. But right now. I wanted to discuss new release coming to amazon prime video. And that is coming to america. The sequel to murphy. He's nineteen eighty eight film of the same name only in this one. The two is actually the number two. Which i'm always a big fan of when movies do that when they are afforded the opportunity. I don't know about the rescue. But i was personally very disappointed. When does zoolander sequel was not entitled to lander an while it may be difficult for the purposes of this podcast. When i'm referring to an original film and a sequel of the same name with the only way to differentiate the two being the way they are spelt. I still think it's a very clever way to market the film but it is interesting that this film is coming out at all. Given that it is being released thirty three years after the original and another has been talk about making a sequel to the original coming to america Kind of perplexed as to why it's coming out now. But the main reason i see is the fact that eddie murphy currently has ten kids and i'm not gonna hold it against him for picking up a nice paycheck for this film now. The original release date for this film was going to be december. Eighteenth twenty twenty but as with many projects it was pushed back due to covid. It is now set for release on march fifth via amazon prime video. So if you have that subscription you'll be able to check it out and the plot of the film centers around eddie murphy's character prince. Kim who is set to become king of the fictional african country is a data discovers that he has an illegitimate son that he never knew about from his time spent in america during the events of the first film so his father's dying wish who is played jams earl jones rising role from the previous film is that prince akeem finds his son and rooms him to become the crown prince so prince akeem in his friends semi who's played by arsenio hall reprising his role from the previous film as well set off to america in order to find his son so much like the first film it set up to be a fish out of water type film. Only now eddie murphy. Character son who is played by germain fowler being the one who is experiencing culture shock other notable cast members include leslie. Jones formerly of snl. Good to see. She got something else to do other than supermarket. Sweep tracy morgan wesley. Snipes jams dill jones luggage said earlier. John amos morgan freeman. And even rick ross will be appearing in this film as himself so this film has an incredibly funny star studded cast and has the potential to be just as phone has the original and taking a step back. I wanna take a look at why this film was made and why thirty three years later. Other than the facts. Eddie murphy would love to collect a paycheck. Is this film. Being made like aware that the film has a cult following. And there's been a rabid audience clamor for a sequel ever since release. But as far as why this film franchise is being revived. After so many years at a sequel is being made and released thirty three years after the original. It just begs the question as to what is the point of it. I know there is a general rule out there right now that if a movie is to be produced it's better to go with warm with presold audience such as an adaptation of a book or a sequel to a movie like this but it just makes you wonder what is the rationale behind releasing a sequel like this thirty three years after the original and trust me like i have no complaints about eddie murphy being in a new movie. I love eddie murphy. Ever since i was a kid. And he's one of the funniest entertainers in the history of american comedy and in an interview without roker. Eddie murphy said he wasn't doing movies anymore. For money grabs. He was only going to be in a movie if he thought it was quality in his fans would enjoy it so e clearly thought that the story of coming to america would be something that his fans would enjoy and would only add to his legacy and knock dementia. And he said the impetus for making a sequel came from just the fact that the original became so popular in an underground cult. Hit over the years in the sense that of all his movies he saw that people were dressing up like the characters on halloween and apparently one year. Vh one had all day coming to american marathon. Where they just kept replaying the movie over and over again so once. He saw the enduring popularity of the film. He started to think to himself. If i could get a sequel together there would definitely be an audience for and people would go see it now. He was right in the sense that there is an audience for this film unfortunately for him a worldwide pandemic happen and people were robbed of the experience of going to see it in the theater but again the film will be released on amazon prime video march fifth so if you have a subscription you can check it out there and i just think it's ironic. That this film was made by paramount pictures. They had to sell the rights to amazon prime video in order to recoup some of their losses from not making it the theaters and now paramount is releasing their own streaming service. So they were a little slow on the uptake with that so they miss out on having on their platform. But you don't have to miss out on it. All you need is amazon. Prime video subscription to check out coming to america which is set to be released march fifth. So be sure to check and just to get back to a little bit of context around this film and reference to the interview eddie murphy had without roker again. Eddie murphy credits. The first coming to america as really one of the first movies with all black casts to really have success all over the world. And it's interesting to see that the sequel is coming out in a time like this. I know that the film has been in development for a few years and that it was gonna come out regardless of the events that happened in the summer of twenty twenty but the commentary of this film is gonna have on race in america and what it's like to be black person in america is going to be pretty interesting to see which again gets into the topic of diversity and fair representation in film that hollywood has been dealing with for the past couple years. And in retrospect just seeing how much of an issue this was kind of crazy to think that the original coming to america which was released in nineteen eighty eight was a film that had entirely black cast. and yes. it's kind of obvious when you consider the story of how is an african prince coming to america and even though is panned by critics at the time this film has really become a cult classic in yes having a star with the staying power of eddie murphy in it and supporting cast with people like james earl jones arsenio hall in it. That helps a little. But i don't see the adventures of pluto. Nash being played. So there's something about this film whether in it's just pure entertainment value or the messaging of it that really resonates with audiences and the fact that it has gotten the sequel after so many years is just more proof that audiences connect with this story and whether that is black audiences whether it's mixed audiences doesn't really matter which i think is really just the message of this whole diversity inclusive movement that we don't live in a world where the idea of separate but equal has to apply to fill me and coming to america is seems like a movie for anyone who enjoys comedy anyone who enjoys any murphy anyone who is a fan of the original and is probably hyperbole to say this but i think films like coming to. America are incredibly important in the ongoing fight for diversity and inclusion in mainstream cinema. And i'm sure that the film makers didn't set out with the idea to be important step in the movement for inclusion and diversity. I mean eddie murphy. Is the writer of the film. I'm sure you just had it in his head that he wanted to create a fun entertaining movie and deliver a good follow up to the original which people have just come to love over the years. And that's something. I think we just have to remember when it comes to film. Most people who make film aren't going into with the intent of causing culture shifts. A lot of people are just going in to make a film 'cause they wanna make an entertaining compelling story in while coming to america does have a lot of layers to in the backdrop with it having almost entirely black cast. It's about a man coming from africa and adapting to american society. The whole intent of film is to entertain people. It came out of the rabid fandom. That eddie murphy saw around the original and though films can have powerful poignant. Topical messages at the end of the day is really just to give people an escape and a time when people need escapes more than ever. I think a film like coming to america that gets people nostalgic for the original while also providing fresh takes on contemporary society could resonate with audiences in a huge way again. This film came out in nineteen eighty eight over thirty three years ago. We have had two different president bush's since that time. We have had the first african american president in barack obama and the first female african american vice president in kamala harris whether the film makes mention of either of those events is yet to be seen but just the mere fact that such groundbreaking historical events have taken place since the original came out. It's not only interesting from a historical perspective but just measuring the two films side by side and taking a look at the jokes from the original. That probably wouldn't fly today. and how. This sequel is adapting the characters from the original to the modern time period hand. I really am hoping that eddie. Murphy's telling the truth when he says he doesn't do movies anymore for money rabs and that he only does a movie if he thinks the story is good and it's going to resonate with an audience again. I can't hold it against an actor for doing a movie to get paid. But if at this point in his career he really is just in it to put out quality work and put out movies that he thinks his fans are going to enjoy. Then coming to america has all the makings the equality film and to reiterate. The plot of this film is eddie. Murphy's character prince akeem is set to become king as his father's ailing but his father's dying wish is that he finds his estranged son and teaches him about his heritage from the fictional countries ammonia and groom him to become the new crown prince so whereas the original film was prince akeem wanting to learn more of the world and become self sufficient. This film is going to center around that character. Who has grown up without a father who all of a sudden is being told that he is the heir to a wealthy african nation. So much like the original. This film is gonna be based around the fish out of water concept where jemaine fowler's character is not only introduced to his father for the first time but a completely different culture and is going to have to learn a new way of life and without even going into the commentary that these films have on being black in american society. Mostly because i'm definitely not qualified. Speak on that. This latest installment coming to america will probably have a lot to say about being black in america but ultimately this isn't a film meant to cause derision or force people to deal with the issue of racial inequity ultimately. This is just a movie meant to entertain and give some people some laughs just as the original one was so once again. The film is set for release march fifth on amazon prime video. And it has an incredibly funny cast headlined. By of course and he is accompanied by a cast. Made up of people like arsenio hall. Germain valor leslie jones. Tracy morgan kiki lane. Wesley snipes legendary actors. Like james earl. Jones and morgan freeman appear in the film in addition to comedians. Like louie anderson and musicians such as rick. Ross and devito making in the film so be sure to check it out. This film is thirty three years in the making. It is directed by craig brewer and this is his second collaboration with eddie murphy. Having previously worked with him on the netflix original delight is my name. the film's runtime is only one hundred four minutes so it is not that big of a time commitment and i'm sure it is good for laugher too so be sure to check out coming to america starting march fifth on amazon prime video right. Now i'm gonna take a little break but coming back we are going to discuss the that's ray of streaming platforms that are now available to people and which ones are worth having and which ones quite frankly are delivering inferior content but just to clarify. I'm not going to be going into every single streaming platform. There is out. There goes pretty much every independent channel. How strong flat form for instance platforms like amc. Plus in national geographic. Plus are ones that. I'm not going to be taking a look at because those are pretty individualized in each streaming platforms. I'm talking about the ones like netflix. Disney plus hulu. Hbo max and ollie me. Taking a look at the upcoming paramount. Plus which is set to debut in mid march. And i'll be giving you my opinions on which ones are worth having from a film standpoint. And another point of clarification the criteria. I'm basing this off of the ones being the worst. From the ones being the best are solely as they relate to film content. I know living in a golden age of television and there are a lot of streaming platforms that are popular due to the episodic series that they provide their subscribers. But for the sake of this conversation. We're gonna keep it solely to the original films that they're producing in addition to the other film properties they have in their library so while there are streaming platforms out there that would score exceedingly high. In terms of the content they provide in a episodic format we are solely gonna be focusing in on ones that deliver the highest content in terms of down and their movie library. So you're not gonna wanna miss it. We will be right back. And i will see you on the other side want you. Tv has changed over time. Streaming has become the new norm. That's why golden state media concepts television. Podcast dives headfirst to the world of cord cutting wants to be on delude of what's hot and that foot or if it's not a preference what about original shows in hulu we've got you covered. Join us as we fill the black and talk about movies to stream and what show. You should be vigilant. This is a golden state media concepts television. Podcast do lower one welcome back. Gsm see movie. Podcast brought to you by the gmc podcast network. We just finished talking about the long awaited sequel coming to america based on the film the same name from nineteen eighty eight. This one again stars. Eddie murphy and will be available to audiences march fifth on amazon prime video again. In an age where everything gets a sequel. It will be interesting to see. How films set thirty three years after the original follows up and adds to the original story so be sure to check that one out right now however. I really wanted to get to a topic. That i've been interested in for a while now and that is what streaming services of the almost five hundred million there are to choose from now are worth having a film standpoint and again i touched on this a little bit in the previous segment. I'm only going to be judging streaming services on what they have to offer in terms of feature length films so even though there are streaming services that have a lot to offer in terms of series quality. That is not gonna be taken account for the purposes of this conversation. Also i'm not gonna be doing every single streaming service there is 'cause like i said there's far humanity even keep track of them so the ones i will be covering will be netflix. Hulu amazon prime video disney plus. Hbo max peacock the soon to be available. Paramount plus and apple tv plus. And i'll just start off by saying that apple. Tv plus is by far the worst one in terms of movie quality. Not only do they have one of the smallest movie libraries of streaming services that are available to the public but the original films they have made are just quite frankly on compelling the most interesting one of seeing that they've produced is the banker which stars anthony mackie and samuel jackson but from their their original works. Really take a dive off a cliff in terms. equality. It is very inexpensive at four ninety five a month but with so many film studios coming out with their own streaming platforms in the last few years and subsequently reclaiming the distribution rights to their intellectual property apple. Tv plus is really left with not much of a film inventory again. This is a platform that has a lot to offer in terms of episodic series but that is not factoring into this ranking so of the major streaming platforms out there. I deem amazon plus tv the least worthy of having moving onto the second lowest ranks streaming platform. We have hulu coming in which is real because who is one of the original streaming services and it really helped pave the way for the modern streaming marketplace that we know today but again with different companies coming out with their own streaming platforms. And they're being less need for a third party distributor who has probably been one of the companies that has suffered the most because of that though they are owned by disney and is available through the many permutations of the disney. Bundle where you can get disney plus hulu. Espn hulu just doesn't offer enough original content in terms of movies with one notable exception being palm springs which starred andy sandberg and chris. Millie audie who just doesn't offer enough original feature films and on top of that. They don't even have that large library of movies in general so for that they are ranked second to last out of the major streaming services. Again that do provide value in their original series but in terms of producing feature length films. It just doesn't get it and as we move further along the list making our way to the best streaming services to have. The next one in line is amazon prime video streaming services being very innovative in terms of the original films that they were pumping out one of the most recent offerings. That had was one night in miami and the new model. That amazon is offering of having premieres completely online without their films. Reaching theaters is gonna be interesting to see going forward and how other studios in streaming platforms responded adapt to it and i also have credit to amazon studios for really pushing the envelope with their content being an online streaming service. They don't have any ratings so they don't have to censor their content and they're free to just let their creatives tell the story on imitated whereas some of the larger streaming platforms with parent companies to answer to while they are still delivering quality content. They do have rules. They have to play by and the fact that amazon prime is becoming this sort of haven for creatives to experiment and take chances with their work which ultimately results in unique content. And that is something. The market is desperate for at this point so while amazon studios is one of the youngest media. Companies in the world are definitely carving out a space for themselves in the film industry. And i'm sure they're sanding will only improve given time but moving on as we reached the halfway point of this list. This one is a bit of a cheat given that i'm raking paramount plus the fourth best streaming platform which is a bit of a bolt claim. Given that it's not even available to the public at the time of recording this podcast. But the reason i'm ranking it so high is just paramount's proven track record on making films going back even beyond the time when there were streaming platforms to give a few examples of films that paramount studios has produced. They're responsible for movies. Like titanic transformers forrest gump. The star trek franchise the mission impossible franchise and long before disney acquired the mcu. They were the ones that produce the first two ironman films. Now they're not going to have access to the mcu catalog but given the business model of these streaming platforms where all the film's going forward from. Paramount are going to be available on this platform and when the distribution rights agreements with other streaming platforms that currently host their content expire and revert back to paramount. They're only going to have a bigger movie library. So all the streaming platform has yet to debut and it is set to debut on march fourth for those who are interested the rich catalogue films that you're going to have access to right off the bat with paramount plus and knowing that catalogs only gonna get bigger over time i think that paramount plus is worthy of being ranked the fourth best streaming service right out of the gate so again for any of those interested in subscribing to the paramount plus it is available march fourth moving onto streaming platform with a bit more of a proven track record is peacock and again this ranking is attributed to the vastness of their movie catalog given that this is the platform that all universal pictures are distributed on and just the overall quality of them to give you an idea of what's available on peacock. You can see films like schindler's list the producers. The deer hunter public enemy's ternal sunshine of the spotless mind apollo thirteen dallas buyers club and they are also home to the entire harry potter franchise. So again this is a streaming platform that has the benefit of a studio like universal behind it. That has been making movies for over one hundred years. In addition to all the series they have through. Nbc and there are other subsidiaries but keeping it to their film catalogue. I am ranking peacock. As the fourth best streaming service out there mostly due to their large library of classics. They have but they are platform that is constantly adding to their library and building on their legacy but peacock falls just outside the top three and ranking these next three in order was probably the toughest part of this entire exercise but coming in at number three. And i'm sure a lot of people are gonna start having issues with my rankings. If they haven't already with this one coming in at number three is disney plus and it was tough ranking them number three given all the classic disney films. They have in their catalogue. How they're coming out with live action adaptations that are completely redefining. What is possible through. Cgi and how they are home to the entire mcu not to mention the fact that in twenty twenty they brought audiences onscreen adaptation of the musical. Hamilton there are definitely a lot of positives with disney. Plus and honestly. I think if you have any of the top three streaming services that i mentioned you probably have all of them so honestly. It's not that big a deal. The top three really just came down to splitting hairs and a matter of my personal opinion. And if i was ranking this listen terms of family. Entertainment disney plus would definitely be on the top of the list but in this instance they have to settle for the bronze medal. And one thing. I did take into consideration. Which is something i touched on a little bit earlier is just the rules that some platforms in studios have to operate by for instance. Disney has a blanket. Rule that no characters in any of their films can ever be seen smoking which is commendable the fact that they are child entertainment and they're not trying to have that image in any of their content as not to influence younger viewers to copy that behavior but having rules like that really limits you from a storytelling perspective and the streaming platforms that are ranked in the top. Two aren't bogged down by rules like that. So for that reason. They rank ahead of disney. Plus but again. I think disney plus is a tremendous platform and it is definitely worth having but moving onto the platforms. I deemed the top two in the streaming service. Worth having is kind of the one that started the whole media landscape were today and is netflix again. Netflix is relatively young in terms of producing its own original content but they are pushing boundaries with their original content. As i was talking about earlier in the show with the film moxie. They aren't afraid to tackle taboo subjects like sexual harassment among teenage girls. No less in they. Really let their creatives plush out and make their story their own and i don't write them so high solely because they're pushing the envelope with their content but because they're producing quality content at the highest level marriage story. That came out. A few years ago was nominated for multiple academy awards and the film that is receiving a ton of the clan. This year is the trial of the chicago. Seven so not only are they producing some of the most unique free flowing content in terms of movies being made today but they're also producing some of the highest quality content in film today and for those reasons they take the second ranking in this ranking of the best streaming platforms and moving onto the number one ranking which for people paying attention at home. It is fairly obvious which is ranked number one and that would be. Hbo max and of the elements mentioned earlier with different streaming platforms. Hbo's max does have the benefit of being owned by a company that has been producing films for almost one hundred years in warner brothers and own some of the most valuable intellectual properties on the planet in addition to providing some of the highest quality production value in their films without even going into the catalog that they currently have of movies. Here's just a list of films that they're gonna be premiering this year and those films include space jam a new legacy matrix godzilla vs kong dune. Zack snyder's justice league and the suicide squad. That is just what they're debuting this year and yes a lot of things changed due to the pandemic but that doesn't change the fact that. Hbo has some of the most valuable quality content being produced currently and again. This isn't even taken into account the wealth of series that have to offer this number one ranking is based solely on their film catalog. So for film lovers everywhere. Hbo max is the quintessential streaming service that you need to make sure you have. Access to some of the highest quality highest production value films that are being produced today. So there you have it a ranking of the major streaming services available today and recapping that from worst best. We have apple tv plus hulu amazon prime video the yet to debut paramount plus which again will be available march fourth peacock disney plus netflix and. Hbo max that is my opinion. On what the best streaming platforms are available today. Life would love to hear your opinion so be sure to tweet me at gmc underscore movies and thank you to everyone who is listening to this podcast again.

I'm finding the best movies out there and bring them to the listeners. That have an to all those listening. I can't thank you enough for your support.

We seem to be in a constant state of fighting fires. So now we're at the precipice of where technology tools can alleviate this pain but we must i invest time in training into understanding how to best position ourselves and our team to innovate successfully. Let's start to think about our human resources differently in a mind. Shift away from our desires to the personal and professional development of our employees thinking bigger attracts a players. I'm rick girard. Welcome to the higher power radio. Show we help entrepreneurs and business leaders win the strongest hires. We do so by sharing insights from top performing rebel entrepreneurs game changers and industry leaders like our guest today. Mr patrick schwarzenegger. He is the business.

Patrick is soaking about business. Trans technology and digital marketing at hundreds of conferences around the world. Which is what makes patrick these perfect expert for today's topic. Patrick welcome to the higher power radio shit today. I'm really happy to be here. It's an exciting time. There's so many things happening so your timing's right on the nose. So very true. Even with the kobe to so much transition has gone towards technology because of the whole people doing things more. Virtually you need both. You can't just have technology. You can't just have people. It's always a question of how to integrate. The two together in one facilitates the other so very true today. We're gonna discuss how to think bigger to attract stronger talent. We're gonna keep it pretty simple. We'll talk about the challenge today. Which is i feel like and maybe it's just me. We're still in this. Just try and get people hired and companies are just like scrambling to find people and it's just problematic thing where they're just still doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results and they're not really getting this goes back to conversations. You and i've had many times over the years. People are very tactical about hiring and they go to job boards and do these sorts of things. But they're not thinking strategically about how to actually get the top talent and we both know that the top talent are working for your competitors. Most of the time. How do you poach them from those jobs. How do you inspire them to want to work for your company. Rather than the company there are with currently. It doesn't have to be complicated like you mentioned thinking bigger the road to being as through doing if you're doing more if you're doing bigger things with your company and with the sorts of ambitions you're chasing that will automatically and by the way it's not just inspiring your competitors you're going to inspire your own existing employees and maybe those millennials aren't doing as much as you would like them to do for you start having a big goals. Those guys will work harder than anyone you've ever hired if you give him something inspiring to work towards absolutely and this leads into what it is. They want for themselves. Personally you just hit the nail on the head. Because they're young. that's what it is. Young people wanted you cool things. People say that millennials are lazier apathetic or entitled or they want to change the world. We all wanted to do that when we were younger. Now were you. And i are a little bit older right. And there's some good modern elder. Exactly there's some people who are older than we are. Is that stage in life honestly across a population where people get into their rhythm into there and they get very good at what they do but they stop thinking as innovatively. But that's the genius of these young people and getting those young people in they gotta feel like what you're doing in your company is cool and changing the world and a step ahead of the competition if you can provide that and you're doing it just to grow your own business. You're going to end up attracting people at the same time doing it for your own reasons where you want to become wealthy so you wanna have this exit and not really tiny any sort of purpose or cause or anything really again. I've talked to people all the time. I just wanna do something helping humanity. I'm wanna do something. That's better in the world. Something that's actually gonna make a difference. Yeah i feel like you can have both you want to get rich. I don't have a problem with that. Each change the world elon. Musk is rich. He's changing the world and he's got his haters out there. But i i gotta tell you for me. That guys like a personal hero to me. Because he's doing bigger things he's thinking bigger and what's happening everybody. The lower age brackets who are engineers data scientists. Anything like that. They want to work. They want space x. They want tesla on their resume. That's showing that they've been a part of something revolutionary. It's gonna make the rest of their career better. Any company can do that. They just have to take the impetus and set some bigger goals. So that is very true as entrepreneurs beginning to the mindset of. We want to build this unicorn and there's no thought into why why bill this usually it's just because you want to get an on your resume that you've had an exit when it's tied to a greater purpose. Dan you have the power to be able to build an uber or a lot of times. We get caught up in the tactical day to day. What's going to be involved to achieve ex wires. -i these are tricks if you will. How do you think strategically you can put some structure around the way you think. And one way is traditionally. A lot of people are like okay. How can we do ten percent more than we did last year. How can we do fifty percent more than what we did last year. And you get people like peter thiel who's one of the co founders of paypal back in the day. He did a lot of work in the vc community before he started pollen tear. He was famous for saying. What's your ten year goal. And he would let the people doing the pitch he would let them chew on it for a few minutes. What's your team your goal. Okay how can we do that in the next six months. And that short circuits your brain all this in your life. Oh wow how can we do that in six months and the amazing thing. Rick is that a lot of times. There's an answer a lot of times. There's like you know if we did this this and this we could maybe do that. A lot of it has to do with coming down onto your goals from above rather than feeling like you have to go up grassroots from the bottom. This is a little esoteric but as far as like if you're an executive for a company if you're running a company ambitions just think the destination and work backwards from that destined like the most grandiose destination you can imagine like elon. Musk would say. We're going to mars right whatever but whatever your industry is how do you get to that final destination then work backwards and try and sort circuit the process. How can we go straight to the destination. Rather than the steps along the way obviously. There's a practical tradeoff between those two. But everyone in your organization including you night you as an individual but the executives right. We have an instinct to do that. Bottom up thinking so. The shortage is not the bottom up the shortages. The top down. that's hop down is. What really attracts strong players for sure. Hey we've got a really difficult problem. We're gonna try and land a rocket ship on the water on applied for exactly right. Exactly who's not gonna try and figure out that problem. That's the role of an executive. That's the role of a ceo. Is that. it's your job to have that top down thinking it's your job to have that vision because everyone's natural instinct is to think bottom up so that's a again. I know in the work that i do. And i'm always studying technology. Trends and technology utilization kind of propagation curves like how does technology propagate through companies. So there's a lot of stuff going on and almost every industry invariably thinks that somehow they are behind which actually isn't true because every industry feels that way because technology is advancing so fast but in order to be strategic about that propagation and about that increased utilization of technology. You need to have that top down thinking which is going to bring top talent. And it's that combination which will allow us to actually happen. That's an interesting scenario because you do have a lot of people like you said like companies that feel like they're catching technology wise. So how do we flip. That's where you're able to capture that and utilize those tools the right tools to attract the right people as well. That's an interesting perspective again. You know. I feel like the number one thing that's going to attract new talent is going to be the vision that you're set. I agree but if you're utilizing technology betting than your competitors. I get hired in every industry. You can imagine i could tell you stories. You wouldn't even believe like. I just super briefly. I got hired to speak for the national pork producers council so this is seven hundred and fifty hog farmers. Some of them literally have. I love that you wouldn't feel you would be amazed at these people like they're using filters they got these pigs wearing sensors in their ear. That are attached to a three g network. If one of those pigs gets a fever they can isolate that pig and a half an hour right if we could do that in the human race this whole pandemic wouldn't have been an issue because and they've got sensors in a million pigs they can isolate the ones that are sick in a half an hour. It's unbelievable so but there again. I'm standing in front of this audience. Seven hundred and fifty people almost all men in rural america who have built these businesses and the ones who are working for the companies that are not utilizing technology. Where do they want to work. They wanna work for the ones that are because that's the cool thing and that's the future and that's where it's going to be so all. The young people gravitate to the ones who are utilizing the technology. The best so and that dovetails into your question. Yeah and i see that in tech all the time engineers want to work in the latest coolest. Exactly here's the incredible thing. So i do a lot of work as well with. Erp companies enterprise resource. Planning people like oracle sap epa cores and other. Great ones. they tell me the same thing. They all say the same thing which is that. They're building these unbelievable technology platforms and their average. Customer is using between five and ten percent of the capabilities. Ninety percent of the capabilities are left. Unutilized isn't that where i use of our brain to ensure is true. But you know what it's like. It's like microsoft excel. Everyone's like oh. I know how to use. Excel no you. Don't you know how to use five or ten percent of excel excel can do like all sorts of visual basic and pivot tables and v. Look up and all this stuff that the average person doesn't well the same thing is true for all the enterprise software platforms. And i think most of your audience are kind of in the snp mid range space not necessarily fortune one hundred companies and if they are that's great but in the smp space. The technology propagates largely through enterprise software. And so the number one thing the lowest hanging fruit. If you will for ceos executives in that space is to just get better training more training in the enterprise software that they've already paid for. They've already got the software again. Going back to attracting talent to different companies can be running. Sap for example which is an unbelievable platform but one company is utilizing seventy eighty percent of the capabilities. The other companies just doing thirteen tasks. This goes into like the digital transformation. What is that. It's taking a platform and integrating it with everything all your different. You know you got your crm attached to it in your production. Everything's attached through that one so if you're utilizing all of it you're gonna be utilizing technology way better than your competitors and that is also going to attract talent. Well you hit the nail head on something. Which is the training piece. And i feel like this is something that snb's fail miserably train. Your people you know if you have an active training program. That's currently going and continuously educating in helping people to further themselves in their careers. They're gonna to stick around because you're helping them get better. That's a huge failure point. I recruit people all the time they just say. Hey look at it. I have learned anything new in by twelve months. I'm just doing the same thing. I'm not bored. I my mind this so many of these kind of salient points. But when you're doing the interview process when you're hiring that talent or even when you're if you're engaging a recruiter to try and track them get make initial contact that needs to be part of the sales pitch right off the bat and again like if you just go to job boards it's almost like the sales processes reverse the perspective employees trying to sell you on hiring them but if you're getting top talent maybe from a competitor for someone who's really leader in their field. You gotta sell them and it goes both ways. They're selling you. But it's it's more of an enterprise sale as opposed to a used car sale and i feel like there are a lot of it. Tends to be what we know what we're comfortable with is. Let me tell you. All the really cool bells and whistles about my company and how we're so awesome and who were funded by we have Foosball table and free water. That stuff only gets you so far and it needs to be really be more like a consultative sales approach where you understand what that human needs and be able to connect the dots in their brain as to how your opportunity fills those desires. The training that you mentioned is what i was thinking of when i said that you've got the individual in front of you. You gotta be able to say look. We have a huge challenge in front of us. We need a lot out of you and we're going to be training a lot of things along the way in that to someone who's young and ambitious. They're going to be like. that's what i need. That's what i want even old guys like myself. I love to learn if you have a culture of learning being able to do that is key. You're listening to the higher power radio show. we're going to take a quick educational moment from our sponsors. A diverse team is a strong team. Diverse teams boost revenue increase innovation and drive performance but the traditional hiring process is full of bias and isn't working in order to hire divers high performing teams. Your hiring process needs to be objective. Predictive fair and consistent the technology behind pre hire assessments are great tool for establishing a more fair and equitable candidate selection process. Criterias assessments are rigorously validated to reduce bias in the hiring process. So that you can measure each candidate's potential not pedigree learn more at criteria corp dot com.

Secret weapon to hiring the strongest people. Today are guesses patrick schwarzenegger. He is a business futurist in keynote speaker. And a damn good one too and he's also youtuber. He's not even saying that but he's got like a ridiculous amount of followers on his youtube channel. Which i got sucked in watching youtube. So let's talk about solving the problem. Education is a big piece. How can we help an entrepreneur to think bigger number one and number to implement some of education that you're talking about or continually enable people to grow so that they wanna be there and they won't leave. Make him so when i call them. They won't take my phone. call well being. This is effectively. The people were if you're listening to this right now you're in a position where we're speaking directly to. What how you run your job. How you run your company thinking bigger as an easy thing to say. But it's not necessarily an easy thing to do and there's some structure that you can use just like for example. Just i mean this is a very simple example but to you listening. Think about your highest priced product or service. Whatever it is your company does. What's the highest price you offer. Now take that price in your mind. Multiply it by ten. What could you sell at that price. Actually let's say differently. What would need to be included for that to be a great deal at that ten x price again. These are your short-circuiting your brain all of a sudden. You're like how my gosh. I never thought about that. I'll give you. The simplest example ever is a good friend of mine his wife. She teaches singing lessons. And i know this is a very novice example. Okay and so. She's got all these kids that are teaching lessons from her and she charged like some ridiculously low amount. Twenty bucks an hours. Yeah thirty. I don't even know it was. It was stupid so she was like. I want to have a group class which would allow me to offer in even lower price. And i'm like oh my gosh you're going in exactly the wrong direction and i'm like what do you want to charge for it. And she had some number. And i did exactly the same excise said okay. Let's multiply it by ten. What could you sell for that same ten week program. She's like well. What if we had a big concert at the end at the orpheum like a big awesome facility where we could actually do a performance and maybe we could have a video crew on hand so the parents and these children would be left with a video of them doing performance on a real stage at age. Eight or ten or whatever they are and all of a sudden her brain starts going. And i know that's a simple thing but that's really the game we're playing so let's say you sell something for eighty thousand dollars. Whatever your product or services consulting who knows what it is so eighty thousand times ten eight hundred thousand dollars. What can you sell for eight hundred thousand dollars and what would need to be included in that in order for that to be a great deal. So now you're talking about a package including a whole experience and maybe even some tie to the results because there's a continuum they're like versus do it yourself. The next is done with you. The final is done for you so right now you might be selling a d. y. Right doing yourself package. Maybe you have another package which is more expensive where we do a with you. We actually bring someone on site and help you implement whatever it is you're doing and then even another package which is further down the line where we literally do it for you. We literally just deliver the results and then you have a certain guarantee of a certain amount of results. There's a continuum in all these things that people can think about which can help you expand your thinking. I do these executive strategy sessions of the exercises. We go through to try and get people and a lot of the ideas are garbage. That's okay. This'll brainstorming is all about right he inevitably times. Those ones that you think are garbage. Ideas are actually phenomenal. Ideas be really good later on down the road. This is what ends up happening. Say all of a sudden you end up with with with one or two winners. There's this whole idea of disruptive innovation two models that. I always come back to the first is that disruptive innovation tends to come from adjacent markets. So these are markets that are not your market but they're related. They're similar there on the peripheral there. On the periphery. And there's a great exercise you can do to figure them. I can do this in twenty minutes so you think about your biggest customers. Who else did they sell to. Those are adjacent markets. Being go down the supply chain. Who are your biggest customers. Who else do they buy from those jason markets. So in twenty minutes you can have a list of thirty and then you just go down the lesson you ask yourself one question. What are they doing poorly a lot of them. they're doing great. they're doing fantastic. There's no problem. But in these sessions within an hour there's always two or three for example tesla was using panasonic to manufacture their batteries in their gigafactory in sparks nevada. Outside of reno and now they didn't renew the contract. You're doing it themselves. Why because they thought they could do a better job themselves. That was an adjacent market. They brought it in house. So you look at your adjacent markets and think can we bring that. Revenue is our new revenue opportunities indirect to our goal here which is attracting great talent. I understand that it's a midway point that can allow you to expand your thinking which inevitably translates into a more inspiring business experience so but you hit the nail on the head. It is indirect to it. But you're adjacent competitors. Those are usually the ones that might be in sideline industry. They're not a direct competitors. Which are the best places to recruit from to a. You're absolutely right. Every company has a players in it. You naturally have abyan see players in a company so if you can find those people who are competitor jason. They often want to go into different industry. Too i've been working in automotive for twenty years. I'd love to go work on something else. I love to work on rocket ships. Those people in spacex is so crazy. I remember the first time that they sent a rocket up and landed the booster on a platform that was basically right beside the one that took off from like eleven minutes earlier. I don't know if you know this. The average age of space employee is twenty seven twenty-seven. They're millennials right. These came under are older. They're they're they're young. They're young and what are they wanna do. They wanna do cool awesome stuff. They want to change the world and they came from all over. The place. To work spacex again. I know that not all companies can have a vision of going to mars. Like i get that. That's not if you're raising a million pigs in a field. An iowa is not going to be the same thing but you do it in an innovative cool exactly becomes attractive. Yeah and people end up in these industries like. I was in the promotional products industry for years. That's like the worst industry that you're selling landfill. You're selling garbage mouse. Pads and shirts with logos on no kid grows up and says one day. I'm going to work in promoter it doesn't have. It grows up when it says one day. I want to work in recruiting either well. That's probably true right. People ended up in these industries. For whatever reason they're they're even in the promotional products industry. There were definitely a players and be players and see players just like you said. And so there's other adjacent markets to promotional products including event planning which i intersect with all the time and then now this online marketing all sorts of stuff. But they're all related industries. So you can coach the top talent if you're doing something that's more cool more innovative. More technology savvy than the other people in that same space. I feel like some of the best ideas are gonna come from. Outside perspectives trying to innovate. I had bonnie and michael the founders of barefoot wines and they were talking about how they had this problem. They get the bottom shelf at some big market chain. They okay. we'll give you three weeks and you get the bottom shelf. And so they had a big meaning. They're like we have no idea how we're going to sell this wine. So there were brainstorming and their secretary said why. Don't you put big footprints that say this way the barefoot wind they go from the front door all the way to and that was. The secretary came up with that idea. You know worked like a charm. It worked amazingly well. They were so ridiculously successful. They them in all their stores within like four weeks or something. I wouldn't have brought this example up but wines so this famous case history people listening. If you've taken marketing you might have heard this before but grocery stores sell wine in this country. I grew up in canada. They don't there but here you can buy wine grocery stores and up until about whining canada. Do you have to do it through government sanctioned different. You time that's exactly exactly but anyway up. Until about the ninety s they only sold bottles generally the ten dollar range in two thousand five dollar range but starting in the mid nineties. They started stocking forty-five dollars bottles. Nobody buys the forty five dollar bottles but it dramatically increases the sales of the twenty five dollar bottles. There's a learning point here too. So what's the most expensive apple. Watch to one hundred and fourteen thousand nine hundred ninety five dollars and has got just the most absurd crazy stuff on it that you could imagine. Nobody buys that. Watch very few. But it increases the sales of the ones that are whatever fifty grand okay and this can be said for any like remember before we were talking about coming up with a ten x product. The bottom line is you don't necessarily have to sell that. Ten x option that having it available increases your credibility in the marketplace. Because people like. Oh my gosh. They're doing this. So there was a i sat beside. I was coming back from lake frankfurt germany or something and there was a guy sitting beside me in the plane and he was one of three owners of this company. That made these really high end microscopes and he was coming from germany because that's where a company had bought the microscope. Anyway so i said to him is exactly what we were talking about. I said what's your most expensive microscope. And he's about one hundred and ten thousand dollars like all right. What kind of microscope could you sell for a million bucks and so he kind of starts thinking and i like. Do you know like what what would have to be included like. Do you know all the things you would love to include in a microscope if you could build the most insane microscope possible. He's like yeah. I know that would be had. I'm ready foot rubs while you're actually this is all this crazy tack that they can then they don't do it because they never thought about it. I'm like look you don't have to actually build the microscope. Allocate some money and build. A schematic for it and get like a rendering and get all kinds of stuff and then put that on your homepage as your premium option. That's available because it'll raise your credibility in the space anyway that guy about who's maybe a year and a half later or maybe almost two years later he sends me an email and he's like we sold a microscope for a million dollars. He did exactly that. And someone bought it and it was the laboratory the nuclear. It's up in the bay area. Oh you're talking about whatever. It is livermore lawrence livermore labs so anyway. It's unbelievable how this thinking can change so all of a sudden you're going from a one hundred thousand dollar microscope producer to producer that has a million dollar microscope. People are what is in the million dollar microscope. It makes you bad ass right straight up. That's what it is you see. Atoms can see nick fusion as it's happening Right i mean any company can play these games. It seems like a game but the truth is it has real world implications well. We're getting pretty close on time. Patrick what would be two or three key. Takeaways you can give the audience can plug into the business today. It's what we've been talking about the whole time thinking bigger. I know it sounds cliche by the way. This is the story of my life. You can see all around you. Yeah it's true. I mean you got to think a lot bigger so look for structures this books. You can read about this. The innovators dilemma is a great one. They talked about disruptive innovation comes from the least profitable market segment. I this so many of these models you can use to try and short circuit your brain and get yourself to think bigger and then embody that the road to being is through. Doing you gotta live that reality in your company and you're gonna find that the people you already have are going to be more inspired and there's going to be people outside your company that are gonna get inspired by what you're doing you're gonna end up attracting better talent one the wife i would imagine when he had that conversation with his staff that hey look i never saw one hundred thousand dollar microscope. But we're going to go to a million dollar microscope. I think that everybody probably get pretty excited. Yeah yeah i think so. And guess what that retains talent patrick.

Thank you for joining US each week we select from a menu topics that can impact business growth to discuss with experts a wide variety the of disciplines and today at the Kathy. I'm very excited to have Patrick Schwarzenegger business futurist keynote speaker and author with his recent book anarchy ink on our show to discuss A._I.. Machine learning disruptive innovations and other technology google trends that will impact Your Business Growth Patrick welcome yeah. Thanks so much Angelo happy to be here with you. I'm really excited about this conversation but getting started to give the audience a little perspective about who you are in about your book in the things you do to living yeah sure so I I've been following technology trends <hes> since two thousand six and ever since two thousand seven. I've been basically a speaker fulltime so I really spend most of my time. Just going from different conferences really all around the world and I've been following technology trends and of course that's a moving target so early on who is in the Social Media Space Digital Marketing <hes> but then moved into the big data space and that of course evolved into the Iot the Internet of things and all this proliferation of data of then led to machine learning and that led to artificial intelligence so I also cover blockchain and some other topics but they're real heavyweight right now is artificial intelligence and what they call robotic process automation and it's having a huge impact on businesses. There's a lot of jobs that are probably going to he displaced as a result of this but that also translates into profits for business so it's a complicated issue but it's fast moving topic and it's one that's really fun to dig into so when you talk about how it's going to impact jobs yeah I think in your in your book you wrote does a study the <hes> by Oxford University that estimates about forty seven percent of American jobs could be lost in the next twenty years so let's let's actually go on that tangent for a little bit yeah. Let's talk about this robotic process. I think our P. A. L. of it is accused for a company called R._P._i.. Was Not that it was a different different R._P._I.. Yeah exactly well in the most simplistic version you can you can break down the tasks of jobs in this country or any country into repetitive tasks and non repetitive tasks and what's happening happening is that the repetitive tasks are being replaced more and more by automation and this study which came out of Oxford and says forty seven percent of American jobs are at risk of being displaced believe number one believe it or not forty-seven percent was actually a low number a a lot of the other countries where much higher like China was seventy-seven percent India was sixty nine so it's really it's it's a stark example of what's going to happen but also the assumption there that when people hear that statistic is that we're going to end up with forty seven percent unemployment right and that's not true either the human beings are incredibly creative and the entrepreneurs are gonNA fill that space and take advantage so I think what's going to happen is yes. There's going to be a huge shift in the job market and a lot of people will lose their jobs but we're also going to see an explosion of creativity and a lot of new services and a lot of new things that are out there that really people have not even thought about you know up until this point when I think of <hes> one of my clients that I work with works with high school kids and college college students about identifying their career path so one of the things I would in listening to this is I'd want to sit there and tell them you really need to investigate that career. Path that you might be picking because it might not be there you know as you go on in life. Is there any kind of guidance agents you can talk about you know from that level and the way that students you look at that. I like the repetitive <hes> aspect tive well. That's exactly and actually you <hes> so many different directions we could go but but as far as what young kids <hes> young young people today should be looking at it really falls into two buckets on the one side you have the stem fields of course which is science technology engineering mathematics and that you know that area is exploding. There's huge demand. I have two nephews that are both really strong in the software engineering space and they're doing fantastically well but then on the other side you have creativity and human communication emotional intelligence and these are things that machines are really difficult add like you have for example the comparison of doctors to nurses and so we automatically assume doctors are safe and nurses aren't but that's exactly the opposite because it turns out that the vast majority of appointments you have with a general practitioner involves really just a couple dozen diagnoses and so that is actually quite repetitive that that could be replaced by some sort of an interactive interface meanwhile the nurses have to have emotional intelligence and they have to build trust with their their their patients and compassion and empathy. Those are things that computers are not as good at so. I think both those are necessary but the overriding umbrella between the two is being critical thinker and a problem solver. If you're a critical thinker on a problem solver you're willing to think outside of the normal structure ready to the classic phrase think outside of the box it really is true. The more creative you are and you can train yourself to be more creative. That's GonNa make you more valuable in the in the future either way okay is there obviously these changes are evolving. It's not like we're GonNa wake up tomorrow and light changed changed but what are some of the industries or kind of business functions or groups that are really impacted today. Ours is that are really doing it. Well versus some of those that will benefit down the road versus some that are benefit. That's a great question so that the early winter and artificial intelligence where the recommendation engines and so on Pandora and Net flakes and we go to Amazon recommends other products we might be interested in that was the early winner of A._I.. But that's almost kind of old news today. It's been out there for a few years. There's already so what are the new ones while the big ones are <hes> what they call N._l._p.. which stands for natural language processing and that's you know you talk to Syria on your phone you talk to Amazon Alexa? You talked to Google home and that technology is getting much better very very quickly quickly right now at particularly the ability of the of the computer to add context from one question to the next week and talk about that if you like but but the big <hes> people who are affected there are the call center workers so even today when you call your bank it says as you can say things like check your balance or make a transfer right well that and it's clumsy today and people get frustrated but it's getting better and better very quickly and it's going to be not long. There's three million call center workers in the United States alone those. Jobs will increasingly go towards automation because it's cheaper imagine the H._r.. Nightmare of hiring thousands of call center workers and getting consistent protocol delivery and and people calling in sick and there's so many challenges to move automation is a big one right. I've got to more yeah. I WanNa hear him yeah. Let's do it so the next one is the commercial drivers so the autonomous vehicles are coming much faster than people expect and there's really three areas so the the most number of unpredictable obstacles in the city driving less than that is on freeways hub to hub long-haul freeway trucking and then even less than that is agriculture right and the agriculture the autonomous tractors like the combines in Iowa. They're all being driven by satellite so that's already autonomous today right go ahead and say is that is that remote I mean it's it's it's it's so many sitting there piloting that from a distance or just based on programming in the predictive I mean it depends on the harvesting company but the leading harvesting companies like they will map out a farm arm you know plot of land literally to the square inch and they will they will have the they'll be people in that combine but they won't be driving. They'll be doing other jobs so that's already happening today and there's actually a company called case I h which is out of Silicon Valley they actually down in Salinas and they're developing autonomous tractor which is pretty cool but so then the trucking the long-haul hub to hub trucking forty-seven percent of trucking rates are the salary of the driver so we're talking about if you can it's incredible so if you can get rid of the driver however you've got a two to one price advantage over your competitors and I'm willing to bet this right now. We're at the end of two thousand eighteen I think by the end of two thousand nineteen some state in the United States and I have no idea which one that someone is going to pass legislation to allow hub hub long haul trucking and once that starts. It's going to move very very quickly. There's three point five million commercial drivers in this country and then the last one is a retail cashiers so the Amazon goes store has no oh cashiers you just take what you want. Walk out of the door <hes> earlier this year. I think March two thousand eighteen if I remember correctly in China the First Person Lists Bank opened where it's a branch while this crazy the lights go on. It's eight thirty in the morning the doors unlocked but there's nobody there so that's there's three point four million retail cashiers in this country so between those three where at ten million let's say half of those jobs are probably going to be gone within say seven years. Wow I think I saw commercial last night. <hes> I think it was for Walmart actually and they were talking in the lady had her APP Open and she was scanning her products at the end she basically paid on her phone and walked out the door yeah and this that's exactly so these are all the things that are happening and I I think a lot of people don't appreciate how fast this could start and what you really have to look at is the financial incentives. Where are the largest financial incentives to like to propagate these technology so in the trucking industry imagine a trucking company that has a two one price price advantage in the industry? Every other trucking company is going to go full speed to try and match that they're going to have to go very quick. The same thing is going to happen in retail stores now. The interesting thing with retail stores is when you have fewer people working in every individual location that that lowers the break even point to justify opening a new location and so what we find like exactly what happened in the banks <hes> the banking industry in the eighties when the A._t._M.'s were released because the A._T._M.'s required fewer human salaries stories per bank branch it allowed banks to open more branches and so now we find bank branches in every neighborhood whereas back in the eighties you only have branch in the center of the city right and we will find we'll see that as well with retail stores where we could see a lot more retail dell stairs open and less densely populated areas because it's cheaper to open an individual location okay well the one you commented on which is customer service folks and being more more efficient in their in their call centers in their automated. I'm looking forward to I can't tell you how many times I'm screaming at the phone going. Customer representative customer representative been called a crazy man a few times. I'm looking forward. That's one of the ones I'm looking forward. Well actually. Can I say something absolutely because this is an interesting thing so I it's it's eight age related and I'm forty seven years old but the older folks. Let's say people whose ages start with a four five or six on average they like the prefer talking to a human being versus talking to a machine but the younger kids in their twenties and thirties they prefer talking to the computer because the computer has all the answers already and they they're confident that they know all the the answers were as a human may or may not depending on if you've got a good person on the phone or someone who's not quite as good so as we grow older. The young kids are going GonNa start to prefer like where we would prefer a human being. Perhaps those younger people increasingly are saying. I don't WanNa talk to a human being at all. I just want to deal with the website exactly yeah I think about this and and you know I remember Schwarzenegger. As course the original terminator and I always think Terminator when I start having these conversations yeah but you wrote a line in your book i WanNa read it to you and have you kind of talk about it. <hes> dramatic increases in productivity will diminish the value human capital algorithms and robotics displace literally hundreds of millions of jobs so I mean we're having this conversation. Can you expound upon that a little bit that that is probably broader ominous to me than than some of the conversation we've had so far share why and you know the the title of my book is anarchy so I do expect. I'm not expecting violence in the streets but I expect a very decentralized libertarian <hes> evolution over the years ahead because it's going to be every man for himself every person for themselves as I should say but you know I if all of these when I say hundreds of millions of jobs I'm not saying just here in the United States but I'm really because we only have about one hundred fifty million jobs here already one hundred seventy million perhaps but around the world certainly automation could replace place that many jobs since so there's going to be a lot of transition into new fields and and that could cause a lot of anarchy and a lot of disruption and in fact we already saw that in the two thousand sixteen election of Donald Trump whether you like him or not doesn't matter but at least not for this conversation station but there's a certain percentage of the population that feels like they've been left behind and they're not being taken care of by the way the economy is evolving. Will whatever percentage that is. Let's say it's five percent ten percent. I don't know what the percentage but it's going to grow so more more people are GonNa fall into that category and so we see this playing out all around the world with Brazil going with a populist <hes> Electoral Victor and the Philippines would deter day and early on in Turkey and you get into even in Germany there's implications and wilders others in Amsterdam and you go around the world and there's ton. This trend is happening everywhere because people do feel increasingly left behind and they have a right to be frustrated right. These people started losing their jobs. In the eighties. The Blue Collar jobs spray the started to go away in the eighties so the for thirty years these people have been have felt like no one's really paying attention so they have a right to be frustrated but that's going to impact our democracy is in our social evolution as a result okay. I heard something on on the news this weekend and. I'm GonNa read it to you and get your comment on it. Said data is the new oil and China is the new Saudi Arabia the U._S. wins on A._I.. Research but China wins on implementation and the premise of that is the reason they're winning on implementation because they have ten times the amount out of their population using phones. Were gathering this data. What are your thoughts on on that China? I mean that's another thing I think people here in the United States. Don't appreciate how much progress China's making arguably they are winning in a lot of areas already already and you look at just infrastructure spending. This is a leading economic indicator so if you build a deepwater port for example it's reasonable the four years later you're GonNa have commerce going through that port. That's a natural evolution so by looking at WHO's investing and infrastructure so you can get an idea of what's going to happen in the in the years to come percentage of G._D._p.. Spent on infrastructure investment is the highest of any country in China eight point eight percent by comparison. We have two point four percent India five point six well so they are investing heavily and infrastructure infrastructure and that's a major major advantage and that applies equally well to the technology sector and the government there which is not democratic which we might say is bad but the fact is democracy is a lot less efficient than an autocratic system. I'm not saying it's better you know one way or there. I'm just saying they get stuff done. They don't fool around and they are actively promoting and supporting their major technology players including ten cent and and and Alibaba and and you know we chat and all these these wall way they all are <music> are very heavily supported and they are so they don't have ten times our population they have about four times our population roughly but their penetration for mobile pay as an example with each pay and all you pay is way higher higher than we have here so they do have enormous data and they're making investments. They WANNA be an A._I.. Leader and I would argue that they might be there already they are they are doing some very very. They're very aggressive and they're smart. I mean I'm not saying there's a lot of things we can criticize China about right but we also have to give credit where credit is due and they are taking strides and we need to be aware that because we compete against that in a global world exactly also in your book you talked about social bought series Google now Alexa Cortana so what is social bought technology and how's that going to play a role in in really in our lives and marketing what kind of businesses are going to probably be early adopters of that and beyond and yeah how's that going to work while so it falls into a couple of categories so <hes> chat bots generally refers to human being talking to a machine via text <hes> social bought refers to a human being talking to a machine versus natural language like actually having a conversation and and there's people define these things a little bit differently but that's a simple way to look at it and then there's this thing called the turing test which is <hes> gentleman by the name of touring way back and I think the sixties but anyway the idea is at what point can the human being he no longer distinguish the machine from another human being and via chat bod in other words via text arguably were already there so people are ready are at a point where they can't necessarily tell that this is a machine because it seems so real it seems so human but on the social but it's less oh it's behind right but that is what we talked about this earlier. That technology is evolving very quickly right now. So the question is where is it going to propagate and there's really two different buckets there and the first one we already talked about. It's the call centers and I think that in the years ahead as little as three to five years most large brands will have to have some sort of natural language interface to communicate with their customers particularly the younger customers so that's GonNa come very quickly but the other one is companionship robots and so eric companionship technologies where you could have companions for like in other words robotic companions for seniors you can even have believe it or not robotic companions for for for middle middle aged people even single men were seeing this propagate where these technologies are there and we have to keep in mind for example that there are there's a deficit of thirty million women in China compared to men of the same age largely a result of the one child L. Policy so thirty million men are mathematically incapable of finding a female partner is a forty million deficit in India seventy million between those two countries so that is a market and it's a profitable market and so you see development there as well so it's really okay call centers on the one hand and companionship on the other and that's where it's going to propagate now. It's really interesting you know I think <hes> all this as a result of data saleability of data yeah and I and and and so let's talk about about that a little bit I mean I have a market research background and you know I grew up doing qualitative and quantitative we got into some predictive and prescriptive analytics and things like that and and <hes> to another business when my partners investing his time in machine learning and things like like that but were scratching the surface compared to much larger organizations that are really investing in this in really competitive from competitive standpoint seems like those those have the most data wins in this kind of ballgame so let's talk about data and competitive advantages and I think also we again in your book talked about the fact that the price of access to data the billing store data is all shrinking making a more availability so yeah I mean it's and that's so there's there's data processing data ban with data storage and those are kind of the three pillars of technology and the cost structure is just collapsing so it's getting cheaper and cheaper and that's why we see this proliferation of data but it's very true that these large companies technology infrastructure the structure providers people like Google facebook and so on our in an absolute scramble to try and get as much data as they can as quickly as possible and the best example is actually precisely the social bought example that you brought up a second ago so apple apple gets their data from Siri right usage data google gets their data from using our phones and Google Home Amazon gets their data from Amazon Alexa with their install base so the question is where it is facebook get their data so just recently. It's some just recently Amazon. Gosh that little sound that we got somebody give best on this on the sun. So facebook released their A._P._I.. Allowing regular businesses is to tap into their messenger platform and use their messenger technology to create these interfaces that they can use for their own customer service needs that is a brilliant move by facebook to get access to data I would I would imagine in and say three to five years that there's going to be tens of thousands of businesses all around this country using Facebook Messenger A._p._i.. To deliver their customer service needs and that gives them a huge trove of data right. We'll see the same thing in autonomous driving Tesla Tesla has something like four billion miles driven using their autonomous technology so they have a huge data advantage and all these proofs of concept like the Ali bus in London and New Tani whatever in Singapore and there's now ways. It has a license in mountain view and <hes> and Las Gatos in the bay area. These are all pilots and proof of concept and they are trying to get as much as they possibly can as fast as they can because that's the currency of tomorrow and that's so machine learning the number one ingredient to make machine learning work is data. Everybody needs data the more the better and so it's a race like facebook paid nineteen billion dollars for what's APP. Why did they do that? They wanted the data they were losing the younger generation Asian whatsapp had the younger generation. They paid nine thousand nine billion dollars to have access to the data. which gives you an idea? How valuable data is right? Well things we're talking about. Are you know I'm taking the perspective big organization so is Kinda start to wind this down. Believe it or not yeah what is small to medium sized businesses. How do they really compete in and not get over that barrier? I mean even when I talked to a client about market research I mean I think they see big dollar signs. It's like oh I can't afford to do that. Yeah and what I'm doing is getting the voice of the customer customer. Fuel has nothing to do with this kind of data collection. So what are some of the recommendations that you might make the to that kind of small S._M._e.. Side of the business yeah well that and that's it's actually my favorite I mean the simplicity of this is incredible but the way this works is the large fortune one hundred even fortune five hundred companies they invest huge amounts of money to develop these new technologies to be there I but then what happens after that while they find out the early use cases that are profitable and where it's really working and then that technology she is incorporated into the enterprise software providers like E._R._p.. Like S._A._p.. For example or Oracle or EPA core B._N._B.. What does that B._M._w.? or BE WM software anyway. There's a bunch of different <hes> e._R._p.. Platforms and also the C._R._M.. Platforms arms like salesforce dot Com Soho and all these things so and there is incredible capabilities built into these softwares that a lot of the S._M._e.. People have already paid for but they're not utilizing so it's just like Microsoft Excel everyone has it everyone in uses it but they actually use five percent of the capabilities is ninety five percent more that they could be doing like pivot tables or whatever else macro so that they don't know how to use turns out the number one easiest thing an S._M._e.. Company can do if you're a C._E._O.. L. A. Live a medium sized company. The number one thing you can do is bringing some trainers to train your people to use the software that you've already paid for and get them to learn the new capabilities because it's already there. If you learn just how to use what you already have have many times you can see huge improvements in operational efficiency and you're you're actually not getting anything beyond what you've what you've got already. Well Okay I wanNA just real quick on <hes> virtual reality and augmented reality yeah <hes> my <hes> <hes> my wife works for a large cruise line and they just launched their new ship and they have a room where the entire ship was in virtual reality and that's how they would go and they would build the ship and they would take tours walking around this so his mind boggling and and now watch the video the other day so where do you see augmented reality in virtual reality going from a business standpoint while you having you. There's really I guess three areas. There's just a store story earlier. This week of a company. I forget was a Boeing I forget but they I used virtual reality to accelerate the development of a new design of helicopter. <hes> dramatically accelerated the development cycle so there's one application just there but there's I would say there's two main things that are happening with and we're just waiting for some headset to gain green broad-market adoption which hasn't happened yet but it will one day when it happens. This will happen very quick number one training applications to to to allow people to do training and much cheaper virtual environment but number two every large H._p.. To See Brand company selling business to consumer they're all going to be in a race to develop increasingly immersive increasingly dynamic experiences that are going to be available on their websites for anyone to peruse and so so we're GONNA see a world very soon where someone could literally spend all day doing a hundred different virtual experiences. Oh my gosh did you see the one that Ferrari just announced and all the Coca Cola one was Super Fun and Burton snowboards has this incredible has one spread like crazy crazy and it's we're going to see a situation where the virtual world is competing with the real world and for a lot of people in our society the virtual world will win and that will contribute to the anarchy that this book is about all right fantastic pick one last question as a business owner. What keeps you up at night? You know what keeps honestly so I spend all of my time every day all day trying to keep up with the changes and I have a hard time doing it. I can't imagine imagine the challenge for regular C._E._O.'s that have particular business that they have to focus on and at the same time keep up with all these accelerating changes so the thing that that keeps me up that gives me anxiety if you will is that the pace of change is accelerating so so much that it's hard to keep up with at all even if you do a fulltime the way I K- I think we have to wrap up here. Patrick thank you so much. It's been great <hes> <hes> discussion and so why don't you tell the listeners real quick how they can get hold of you and about your book and things like that <hes> sure of course the books available on Amazon <hes> I appreciate the opportunity to be here with you today and anyone's curious about myself in the work that I do. The easiest way to get that is <hes> is actually go to book Patrick Dot Com which is a little subtle call to action in there but my last name doozy's so it's a lot easier to just go to book Patrick Dot Com and that's that's the work that I do and I I would love comments sent him to me.

I don't know and he could not be cooler and Nicer and more humble follower. I met Patrick Dempsey yesterday Aka MC dreamy and the way that it happen though was so legit like because it was so much better than me going out to him and being like high emory huge fan. So we're at this Charity Softball game and it's California's wrong and it's it's an amazing 'cause it's it's for all like the California tragedies and maybe say support. They give money to people that are from fires last year. So how'd how did you get involved in the first place they do this celebrity softball game. This is only the second one that they did so washer. The first one obviously well and they sell tickets at pepperdine and all all the money raised goes to the charity and so they have. I don't even know how I got asked to be honest because this is like Adam Sandler and like tiffany haddish like and then there's like me i. Yeah but I guess the invite came to Ryan and me and obviously I don't know if they want us to come together respondents at Ryan can't go because he's Newark. Do you still want Tanya. And they said Yeah so count me in And so were there. And everybody's warming up and I went with Chris Harrison and I look look over at Christmas. Go Patrick Dempsey is here and he goes. Oh I know him introduce. You think he's right behind you. So he literally turns around and he he is the coolest like Christmas. Like hey like hey i. Don't call them pattern. Patrick like have you ever met Tanya. She's on the morning show at kiss with Ryan and He's like no nice to meet you and I was like to be nice and then Chris goes and she's also a host of a podcast called scrubbing in.

I've tried to know exactly what you said. Yeah that's what I said. And then all those life lessons I can like blacked out a little bit but it was very brief because then I didn't know what else to say and a little. It was like warm up. Are you talk to say in. The my curse left does so then a yeah. I can conversation with an animal like an aunt. I talked to my plants in my house and I can't talk to Patrick Dempsey as I just kind of mandate off because like he was on the opposite team so I went to I went to my dugout and then I was like Gosh if only he was on my dugout. 'cause I was like really hang out with everybody and Mike. I really became friends with everybody that was like in my dugout. But he was in the other one so then. The game's over. He wins rookie of the year. Her and I was like one rookie of the year. That was the thing. Yeah offer the Best Q.. And so he's like holding his award and we're all leaving together and leaving these stairs the stairs were like like there's a breathy like by the time you get top of them you're like dying and and I'm walking up the stairs and he's literally right next to me and I just you know. What are you GonNa do it? That a war beloved I love to have a mic on you I in my head I was like I want to fall back. You know I need a medic or like some I I mean that didn't go through my head when I was like be Kuan Cool. Yeah I'm glad you didn't do that. The best part is is that Chris was at the top of the Sarah's waiting for me because there was like leaving all all the cars are up there so he was waiting so he saw me walking with Hatrick Dempsey and he in a clutch move move took pictures of walking because amazing. 'cause it was like the kind of event where it's just like you don't take photos of people it was just so famous savings and it's such a good cause and just like the vibe is so chill and like no you know what I mean. You're the first website your phone. Yeah so I didn't WanNa take a picture with him but the fact that I have those priceless looks like y'all are just like I don't even know if you were talking to each other but it looks like yeller like just casually just buddies walking the ball game. Yeah just after the ball game walking walking up with our bags at I was just really just never been happier and I was like Chris. Thank you so much. That was really cool. I guess they're like good friends because they worked for for. ABC for so long together. Oh yeah he's known him forever and I was like God. He's really nice and really cool. Was He small. No really not to me. Okay my okay you met my Katie there. Yes sent me the picture of Y'all I'm like yeah I know but she said he he looked small. He's five ten but she said he looked very ski. Not Show like he yeah he did not look that to me. He looked every bit. The May Dreamy. I Have Marie three that it was really magical so Katie texts me and said are you at this charity Gate Malibu and I I was like no I was like what is it and then I was like I think Tony is there. I think I just saw. She posted a photo. So go to look at your profile. And then I click on the California strong. And it's like saying who's all going going to be there and I see Patrick Dempsey and I'm like Oh my God I text you and I'm like all cow Jack Dempsey and just met him. I blacked out. I don't I know who I was but it wasn't on. Yeah somebody myself. It's weird when you meet people on a certain level that like you think. Hey you're going to be a certain way and all of a sudden it's like the moment comedy and even freaked out about the podcast. The you know what I mean like. He wasn't even like oh I think if you go up to a grocery is restore and say I do a podcast about grace anatomy. He's like where's my driver. Can I get out of here but at a situation like that you are somebody. Yeah Yeah you are given status. It's just being on the roster at that place. I'm looking at the list of people here with Charlie Sheen. No I didn't see him okay. Jillian it'll newest supposed to be here. But he got arrested. So I'm guessing it wasn't there. Oh Oh man Patrick Schwarzenegger yeah. He's on my team. Hung out with him chat out. We Love you Patrick. Posted a video of Patrick Schwarzenegger and I was like this is not the Patrick. Go on what people that are like my friends. I can whip out my phone and like whatever but I'm not going to be a Patrick Dempsey. Can I take a Selfie. It'd be like I just couldn't totally get it and I met like all. These brewers people like all these brewers players in the market is like the biggest brewer. Our six years it was like telling them about mark like hoping that they'd be like let's send them a video or something because that's what I thought I'd do like if somebody were says that let's send them a video or something and it just wasn't Dan by so I was like I'm just GonNa they know they know of you. It's a weird connection but a lot of the brewers who played a lot of them are from southern California and allow that we're very affected by this wildfires. And that's that's where they started this Christian Yelich and Ryan broad and Mike Doctors who's now with Cincinnati but so yeah a lot of my heroes. Were at this game and honestly they were so nice. Like I can't get over. How awesome sports guys are no seriously wounded? They were so much fun. Like I had the best time. Aqaba cody bellinger. Who is the most valuable player in the National League? I was so blown away. A how cool he was like. We really like became friends yesterday yesterday and I told him I go. I've never watched dodger game and I really wanted to embrace the dodgers and so like really become a dodger fan this season. I said I'm going to come the game. He's like totally set. You up with good whatever. What team do you play for like? She's got to be hilarious to these athletes. I didn't know what it but I knew. They were athletes when they were like hitting the ball. We just had such a great like he's just so nice and and so now I said I'm going to commit to like being. I'm going to get a Jersey and I'm GonNa oems and I'm GonNa go so go to one. He was my teammate in the Pingpong Challenge the dodgers stadium two years in a row and when I met him I didn't know who he was either and they were like cody bellinger and I was like. Oh that's cool and they were like he's literally probably going to win rookie of the year. This year he went. MVP TO MVP is what he was and there was another one that was MVP before so nice. He's cool. Were there any single hot dudes around there was. I don't know if he's single or not. I don't know if he's single but there's one I'm trying to figure out we're trying to find the roster for this purpose because you don't WanNa talk much about if he has a girlfriend because golfing tell the story. Okay so okay. So I finally met Jared Goff's girlfriend who could not not be sweet but she was telling me that like when all this was going down that first of all the got from jared was like not even not even anything like it was like not flirty in the slightest bullpen for interpreting. It was not but subjective. No now so actually the story behind it or it was hard but you know. I'm like you send Patrick who works with us. Who's his best friend? Better Conroy. Yes he had sent him my story and said Hey. Is this the ban that you I guess it was like. I posted some band that he knew or knew of or something. Is it my song of the day and he responded responding to Patrick but he responded to me. Yes Oh is that right yes so it wasn't even like wow how flip literally say it would be. It's not an unreasonable for you to have seen it as a flirt. I see that that's interesting that it was completely unintentional correct but the only reason and I didn't remember I didn't even bring it up on the morning show. The only reason I brought up because the weed they were doing this Halle Berry Plane Ryan was like oh I want to know. That's so interesting and he goes. Let's get one of the MON and so I said or have a DM Open with the one of the players responding to give him the hotline number. And then that turns Jared Goff at a game at the line Halle Halle Berry Berry tweeted about it. We're talking about it. And she says oh by the way I deal with him. Yeah so I was like I have opened given the hotline number so it really turned from literally just that innocent little I can give him our hotline number into the saga that it was like Tanya Jared Goff happily ever after whatever well Ryan Spun it into the radio you so you know. She started listening to the podcast because she wanted to hear like what I was saying. 'cause like third newly dating you know whatever and then she's ended up saying that she loves the pocket so much she listens every week and she loves listening with a chip on her shoulder. My who is this woman who was talking about rightfully so I'd be exactly the same and so she's GonNa come to the live show so I know she was really cute. I had a good time with her Who else today see? I cannot find this person that you think was hot and made it a dodger brewer. He's not either slate what he's a Kansas City Royal. Oh I don't know but I have. I have somebody on it trying to find a name. 'cause I WANNA find out if he has a girlfriend. I don't remember kind of I mean not. That memorable was though the name if I want to talk to someone again though you are. You're like consumed by royal. I bet you miss remembering that the amount of people I don't know if it's meant to be it'll be a avi second we got there. I know it's really funny because I literally my mind when I I. I'll Patrick Dempsey. Oh I'm so jealous. I'm not there but then beyond that moment of feeling bad jealousy. I was so happy for you and that we got this experienced. Let's just talk about. I know and then I was like I couldn't invite him to come on Patrick Dempsey's not does he leave his house for much. Like bringing out your phone phony not inviting him to be on the puck too much. But now I'm like I see him again. I'm going to be like for sure you're sure right. I mean yeah. He's probably he probably remembers her name. So we just had to find out the next thing is going to be at you just show up there what up. Why don't we stop down for the second as we say in radio? Because there's so much talk about. I think next.

I'll never forget it. Yeah I was on a high like you know. I got home last night and I literally didn't know what to do like I don't do drugs. I imagine it feels like this and so I went to Yoga. Yoga's I came home. I made fish at like nine. PM like one is going to go to bed. The midnight snack my yoga classes from seven. Thirty eight thirty. I got home and was hungry. Jellyfish probably like eleven. There got no zing I was. I'm high assures. Just go to bed after meeting. Patrick Dempsey approached me to Wehrley. Did that after I met Gal Gadoe. 'cause I was so mesmerized with how kind she was to everyone there and then we met and she was so thoughtful and like you know just talked us like very one on one and I just Komo's like wow that was woman I loved wonder woman so I just thought it was like the coolest thing ever weird high. I don't even know what I would do. uh-huh bet like Bedrick Ellen. Yeah Justin Justin R I P or do we okay so we have some theories but just review. We'll all remember where we were when we got the news because it was a double shot it was a one two punch is is used over one. Justin Chambers is leaving raising advocate pct to Justin Chambers has left grey's anatomy and will not be returning turning already. He's already gone. We've already said goodbye And we didn't get to say goodbye so this is dedicated to justin correct. I thought it'd be fun if we if we got to say how we would write him out of the story. Yeah like if we were writers grey's anatomy a lot of people in the facebook. Group pointed out that I was recently saying. What a great gig? This guy has fifteen years of planning Alex Karev so the question I have is why now what happened because something happened. It was not the plan I guarantee it for him or the show. I read somewhere that he he was. He's having like health mental health issues so really yes. So if it's that I like you obviously you have to take care of yourself. I but I don't know that's just. I read that in an article so I'm not spreading rumors I just saw it but but his statement was about expanding his repertoire. Or something like that. which I I think I mean you should have that ten years ago if that was actually interesting to you? That's what I'm saying and I don't know if that's just a reason to such a shock and I think everyone's kind of like what the heck you're just gonNA leave as high. Feels like getting ghosted. It all your to me because like everybody talks about how like warm and fuzzy see the set is like is it really like that. That's what I'm saying. I can't imagine the riders would do that injustice to him if it wasn't his like if something was going on with him personally and they thought maybe it was the best decision for him to not be there but I can't imagine there being like so much drama that like even decades there's drama with Patrick Dempsey and they still. I mean it was brutal but we had a good bye farewell. Patrick Dempsey was cut short and it was harsh in chambers for over it was just. Oh He's going to help his mom. He went home to help mom. So that's how that's what they said. I don't remember number. That happening episodes said Oh. He went home and help his mom so now from now on. Joe Is going to be alone in the apartment because Alex's off helping his mom are they gonNa do a thing where she's uh-huh okay. Alex thanks bye. Hangs up her phone but I'm also I'm also wondering like if he needed to go let's say it was like his decision he needed to go for whatever you were saying saying before if he has mental health or whatever you would think that they could be like okay take care of you. We're not gonNA send you off. We'll just just keep you wherever you are for now and then we can bring you back when you feel like you can't yeah like he's going to help his mom for how he's supposed to help us. Mom Yeah That's why that's what is weird to me. Write them off for the rest of the year and then hopefully you can come back in the fall. That's seems like a if that's the case it seems like that's more logical path to take unless us the reason he's having issues because of something to do with the character on the show he they said and then there's another article let something like he was having a. He had a hard time detaching from the character like he was very connect their new. Yeah but I had the same thought as you. I'm like they make however much money in episode at this point the OD's especially you're fifty years old. You have a family. Why not you know the show at some point is coming to an end soon? Like it's been six. It's on its sixteenth season. So why wouldn't you to stick. Get Out till the series finale which might be a year or two more and then you have your summers free. You can do a movie if you need to. I mean they've done movies before last. I mean I don't understand understand I don't I don't I don't understand ever complaining about a Gig like that or having to leave a Gig like that many do so maybe I'm just completely in in the wrong or in the dark but seems like a great Gig to me three. I'm so upset it's like it's just another like punch in the guy you know and it feels like so unfair her to people who especially with someone that was had such a huge role. It feels so unfair as viewers that all the sudden this person's just gone like we've talked on this show but what is his happy ending. 'cause it was like this hand up with meredith like what happens. They're like just over if I were writing. That's how I'd write it off so like it's the series finale and everything's done after this thirty eight twenty thirty eight and we were doing if they didn't episode right now like a farewell episode. Well we're the writer so we can remember. But that's that's not. That's still could have happened if he was still in the show. I'm saying like if he wasn't leaving doing the show right now. That still could have been a a choice as he ended up with. But he's leaving he's gone so I'm saying like let's say they're they're ending him now. Will you had to do a farewell. Okay so then I would still have him. Mary Meredith. It would be. I'd say he's not with Joe. Oh sorry Joe. The love of my life is Meredith Grey and they would get married and then he would decide that he wants to be a doctor without borders and then he would say I'm going to marry you and then I'm going to go and do my work. And he goes and he does his work as a doctor without Borders. So that's another thing that would have been very easy easy because he's working with a win at this new hospital. He could get talking Owen about working overseas in these medical military units. And I wanted I wanna be a doctor but that that would have been a great sendoff for him but now it's just over but I'm saying twenty thirty eight in the last episode meredith gets dumped by yet another guy and she's leaving the hospital and who standing out there in the season. Finale is Alex Karev in like a Tuxedo and I didn't know you were team mayor. Alex I don't know that I am one hundred percent but I do like that as and ending. I like him coming back in the finale. Or do you like Meredith Meeting Derek in heaven honestly. That's the only thing that titanic when they do the NCAA where they both like meet up again in the afterlife from my heart. It feels like it can rest peacefully knowing they're together again maybe that's not opposed to like yeah. She's old at flashes forward to. She's like so old and then she dreams and I've been waiting for you. The elevator opens and Derek standing there. Yeah okay great mice and offer. Alex would be I always was. I honestly was always rooting for the Izzie and Alex storyline. So oh I would have him. He went to find Z.. Again because he just she never loved his mind right like to don't why is he still exists in their universe. Yeah so many people tragically lost so you assume if they're not there they're gone but she's alive she's lies. So is Joe. Just GonNa be alone. But you're GONNA is going to be a break-up next season to give me moving on from Alex like it's all it's all up in the air yeah. I'm like nervous that they're going to give us some lame like reason. He's Hor Joe now gonNA date. I don't even know his name on the show link but he's having a baby with a meal you think so but that that went that I mean they are married. Joan Alexander married. Yeah I know his character is just visiting his mom so she can't move. Yvonne eventually eventually perhaps late so it was alex stone like the winter. Finale I don't remember I know I can't remember. I need to go back and watch the winter. Finale was was that the one with with meredith trial. That was the winter finale. Now I think there was one or two after that maybe nothing. Well you remember the bar crash down the ceiling. The car drove into the bar. I think Oh in the crash or whatever but was Alex in there. I have no idea. I don't want him to die. 'cause I really feel like he could make a comeback and be there at the finale. That'd be great. I'm just released. I felt like I couldn't even I the more text in my life like this is actually kind of sad X.. Messages I caught on Friday when the news broke. Like are you okay. I was like okay. Well I hope he's okay to hope just like obviously more than us as you're watching a show. We hope nope he as a human being is a husband and a father of five kids. Yeah but it's definitely a loss and I think that scrubbing scrubbing. It'll be the perfect place to do his exit interview to couldn't agree more instagram chambers official fish address chambers.

So I feel like I have been saying Bachelor Bachelor Bachelor for since I've been on known you and she always Papu it. I am still pooh-poohing it. Because of the reason I gave you you from the beginning I I can't even date one guy and think he's dating other people potentially could be dating other people dating a guy and knowing that he's dating other people that I actually see I think would gut me like truly it. Would you see me. I know yeah I see that. I know what you're saying. How did you do without? Did you feel competitive or they would feel terribly competitive. I'm so competitive but I'm in cool. Hand can keep it surface. Ben Season I felt a lot of emotions. Yeah I was jealous. I didn't like like he would come. Grab someone and walk away and I was like yeah like and you know it was Lauren who he ended up choosing and he was so like you could from like early on. You could feel hell into her. He was so it was like painful when they would You'd see them in group like I can't even. I think that the person that I'm dating dating other people all I'm saying you'd be great. TV that's clear. I honestly feel like you'd be very like a very hannity type like very like where your heart on your sleeve like you have you struggle with it. Everyone can relate because most people would feel that way in. I'm not setting and I feel like it would. It would also totally depend on who the guy is right. and that's another factor everybody up to speed so this came up in the morning show last week like with seacrest and I forgot how it came up now but he was the one that really was like. Oh I know pilot Pete was on probably peed on the morning show and then he was like Tanya. What is the deal? You wonder because it seems perfect. You had some concerns but then it kind of progressed from there because Ab sugarman it produces the show and all a suite of podcast for our our radio. She's actually gotten a couple of people on that show so she has the power to do this so we talked to her and then and then tomorrow we're GonNa have rob Nelson ABC on but it seems like we're all going in the right direction here and that this really could happen so you concern his dating if you don't like the lead that's your concern. Yes but I feel like you will likely I think you'd like the lead crowd of people choosing some pretty high quality dudes like let's look at the last three right what I date Peter the pilots. Yes yes he came up to you and bar and it was just y'all too and he hit on there who was after him before him. Eh Colton who built in no okay. Really yes yes I know because you know him now at the time I still know this person now where they introduced nick vile. I'm I'm sure you were not like you know. I'm sure like Oh handsome. Let's see what we got here. I think that whoever it is Ben Higgins Souls yes. Yeah you would say yes to more the bachelor's in USA not one hundred percent. And also I feel like if not your pickiness is starting him to get in the way we brought up before Chris. Oh no no no. This guy is an eligible bachelor. What were you were like crystals awesome and then the moment passed? Well it was there it happened there and I think he's living in L. A.. Now so that could be cute. Just say it. I think whoever the leat is you would develop feeling for him just from spending so much time with him. Team Gateway is you don't spend time with them Mark Forty eight hours and I was there the whole eight weeks both crystals. I probably spend forty eight hours total. That's not a longtime nonstop. Four hours together together tallied up increments I mean I see what you're saying. I Tanya falls easily. That's true. And the purdue I mean listen no matter who the guy says they make him seem like he's literally the best guy in the world free you. He smells good. He looks good. He dresses well. He's GonNa Tuxedos he's giving out roses. His breath always smells. And you're surrounded by women who also want him to get your competitive fire going. That also might be the downfall for Tanya be cloud that would I would not like that. The two things that worry me about Tanya going on the bachelor chiller and their minor. I think they're minor and we should overlook them but they are the competition with other girls because she's not a competitor against other woman in which I guess I'm not in that way either like not even competitive like in anything you know. I mean like in sports. I'm like like I don't even have that. Like what about like board games now. Oh I really like. I'd like to play them for fun. Like it's fun but like James in the morning show his way into it where you're not as into okay. I don't get how you just play things. Wchs were fun to win. Oh my gosh like it's very important And then the emotional aspect of like Mike wanting someone who's attention is on so many other people that would I think we can build you up to be strong into hand to go in and and we can preppy train because this is the ultimate goal right. Is it for her. To land at the bachelor ultimate goal is for her to be the Bachelorette the following hunting season. Don't you think that would be ideal so that would be something and that would be something very interesting because I've also never dated multiple people at once. I feel like that that would be an emotional emotional wreck on myself. Like what have I never had feelings for two people at the same time I've heard being the lead is like way harder than being being one of the cast or whatever just because it's so emotional. Yeah but I think I see I say the goal is we get you if you fall for him it works out with him awesome but the second goal Bachelorette third goal turn parents and if we can figure out a way logistically to keep her on the morning show somehow maybe it's from the mansion. Maybe she gets a pass to leave in the morning. I don't know what it is but there's away because we're not going to want her to leave the morning show for eight weeks or ten weeks eight weeks total at insane. That's not gonna fly with the powers that be but if we could figure out a way to keep her involved it could be a great cross promotion for both. You know that would be the benefit if there's a benefit iheartradio then. They're all fours. We can keep her on the radio. And then the bachelor's constant promotion for kiss in the morning morning show then. I think everybody's a winner. I was shocked if they did that but I never they don't even let you have a TV in the house. And they're pretty pretty well. They wanted to lock. That could be the deal breaker. Then yeah give her up for eight weeks to find love no actually really. Ah Ryan's face when he found that. Out 'cause amy called this morning and she like told him that I'd had to be gone for eight weeks and he literally was like the no like you're not leaving. You're not gonNA leave the show for eight weeks and I was like. Oh that's actually sweet. Nothing not even to find love and he was like up to you and kind of gave me this look like what if there's the microphone in her room at the mansion. Do you get a room at the managing multiple people like a you honestly so you would be so happy to make friends with girls but I think that would be the part. That's hard because yeah if you liked the guy that much but you're also really friends with girls which I know. Oh you would be. It's like a weird housing situation. Seems like my favorite part of being a sorority room. Where you're going to do a studio? They're not going to install a closet. Is it there somewhere. There's probably a production room somewhere that up. That's true probably closet. All you need is a closet. Yeah I just think it would be weird that they don't let anyone work and then they're like well we have a microphone for what's her. She gets to be on the radio every day. I had to quit my job. I'm a contact creator to myself. Oh she's on the radio. I don't get it. Yeah now. It'd be that US projecting. They might not be that way. Yeah I think once they get to know you love you. It's a lot it's a lot it's a lot. I feel good about it but I really really. I gotTA trainee to really be just like emotion lead detached possible civil. I know but I feel like I could be less emotional than I am but then you not being Tanya what if we just gave her some edibles and we just you know leveled or our watch that show what format. What would that do to me? Should we just don't facebook live Tanya trying yeah I've actually was considering it because the ones that make us like sleepytime ones because I had trouble sleeping last week I was considering it. Yeah but not what is it. Is it edible. CBD gumming up. We would want to see if he would just be you. You getting sleepy. That's obviously what's an edible edible has we'd THC in it the active ingredient CBD's Very different so if you were like took inedible. CBD that'd be disappointing and edible would make me high. Yeah Yeah it's legal. It's legal at home and we just did a facebook live and it's just have you eaten one Ya ah what does it do to you but I only will literally. I took one one time. And it's a different leslie. Gumy's not asleep yummy. This is a what is it like. My shoulder hurts and advil not working. So what do you actually physically eat like. What is the gummy other dummies? Well take him Butter and stuff they have. CBD We'd yeah. Yeah I've never done any of that I just have taken five milligrams and then one time I took the whole one. It was the the first time I've ever done any sort of marijuana anything like I had never smoked anything. I was so paranoid that my brain was never going to go back to normal. He thought but I was creative. I was like thinking about things like coming up with ideas really but I I took it at night and I was just white away. I was like on one but it was like fun. Whatever it would been much more fun if it was during the day or something so then if I if I'm having a hard time relaxing I'll take half of a five and that makes me just chill and then I fall asleep which is great? But that's not an edible. Edible confuse confused. Well I am somewhat. I've never done any of this stuff either. CD's are very minor and I would take Cassivi. CD's or CD would help you relax if he were like couldn't calm down like after the Patrick Dempsey high. CB probably would have been nice meeting. Gummy Fish Yeah but apparently it makes you look really tired if the next day. Some of them if you take them so. I don't do it unless I'm like can't call like relax interesting. That's you know we're just drunk. Lot of drunk okay. Yeah no I've never been high tried weed in high school but like I couldn't actually smoke it like I don't know I like coffee. Belly goes burning my throat and so I didn't like it so I think I did one. We call it puff drag and. That's the only time I ever smoke any weed and my life and I didn't like it. I didn't like the pain and so like mcintrye this one time a girl said she had a CBD Pin. And so I didn't even know like I've never smoked a cigarette or anything so I didn't know how to properly inhale so I go and I just take a huge inhale hale and I start choking like aggressively and then she's like oh I it's like half. THC HALF CD four. And then they I guess they say if you cough off more the more you cough the Jairo get but I ended up being okay. I didn't feel really anything but I never WANNA smoke anything. I've noticed smoke So hence the edible yeah okay. Have you been high other times. No it's the first time I took like the full edible that's over. I've never really liked anything that kind of made me. I mean I have been very drunk out of my control but not as many times as it probably seems what's Sorry for the ignorance of this question. How what how does being high compared to being drunk well being highs like to me it was more relaxing? Saint Drunk is like party like you. Don't you know it's not going to end while you're gonNA wake up not feeling great. It's not it's it's weird appeared because you wake up and you're like I did this to myself like no one else did. This paint calls me this painting I did like I chose this. Yeah it's weird. It's weird because I don't have any desire to be high but I enjoy being drunk. Oh that's funny yeah. I don't I only I really only drink and I don't drink at home. I'm never like oh I would. I'm not someone who loves a glass of wine like I just. I drink socially if I'm events just to like chill and relax but I don't. I haven't been drunk drunk in a minute which is good no hangovers. Yeah Berdahl I've never been either so that was interesting. Thank you Eastern has an issue we could discuss.

You had to seek see her mission to bring cygnus up. Well IT'S A. It's a sensitive topics I wanted to make sure I wasn't crossing any boundaries before On the rooftops shouting this. So so. Here's here's some data. I want you guys with Allison. My lovely wife Allison and I have been married for two years going on three. Thank Queue and we you know the topic of kids come up often when you're when you're newly married and we're leaning towards not ought wanting them but we we've been going you know. We're not hard on that decision so we've been talking about about sorry I'm trying to I don't want to get to blue on this. It's okay but the thing is is allison has endometriosis. That's a it's a very painful condition. A lot of women have And we found that when she was on on birth control it made it so much worse so much worse and then she had an idea for a long time and that made it worse too so she just say -iety it feels like it's the way to go. Yeah that that made it almost worse than a daily control. So she's not been like my attitude was. I don't want you to have to take something that makes you this. It gives you this much pain not worth it so so you boy has been using condoms undone you you know you know but the thing we were talking the other day first of all I just I think it's so. The state of birth control is so upsetting to me So upsetting and I know this has been brought up a bunch but like if you like gave men the same like symptoms that women would just never fly for sure like dude condoms. It's like I don't know a ninetieth discomfort so really for real and I and I like you. I like it but but you know we did discuss the the other day. Yes you're right I agree with you know you feel me a we did discuss. You know. I'm if we'RE NOT GONNA. We're not trying to have kids. How about a how do you go to the sect me route? How about yeah? Why don't you do that because the problem is Now we're like well. What if we change our mind reverse it see? I thought that to mark speaking out of turn. You've you've done Nisa proud. It's it's been a decade markets like a vasectomy seller like he is like such a fan of voter promoter. Yeah I actually texted said Mark and all I said was I'm thinking about getting vasectomies do it no. I wouldn't say that I ever made because I have two beautiful girls. We don't want anymore. Kids your situation should is different and allison tells situation makes it interesting as well. I but what percentage are you. I don't we don't want kids I'd say like I'd say seventy seventy thirties. I think you've got to be at least ninety. Ninety five actually have a second we. They're not that easy to reverse switch the research I did was. There's an episode of Seinfeld. They get vasectomies and they go back and forth within the same day several times and I read. That wasn't accurate but it's not as reversible. They make it seem right. Like what if you can you save your sperm. Can you like like how we freeze are actually free some sperm. So at the time does come that you guys want and then you get your to me and if you do want kids you can just plop some in her lower mandic top some. We did consider consider that and it's expensive to do that thing. Oh Yeah store to store just you just put some tupperware in the freezer you know awards out science their science and stuff that goes with that but I mean that is an option because because of dimitrius there's more it's more than likely we're going to have go some style route. How effective RBIS activities? They're like nine. Mike Ninety nine. I think if you do everything you're supposed to supposed to check couple of times just to make sure that they got everything taken care of it on there. I think they're very very effective. Like yeah ninety nine. Say maybe you get one if they're like eighty percent affective than like maybe it happens to and that's what needs to be. You know you talk about that. I was like you know. Maybe just put it in God's name yeah but it's a weird. It's a weird thing and I just like I just got upset thinking that you know eastern brings up a bigger issue and that is a look on your face. Soapbox is coming out and you're going to step on it. The State of birth control. They I want to hear the rest of what of what he's into. What where this is going to go in the same room? I was thinking like you guys have made a decision right. We have not made a DECI- like our our indecision has pumped the brakes on the victim conversation. EU pumping them. Or is it her. It's uh-huh you equally seventy thirty. Think yeah I think so. I think actually he's asking. What preceded Wilson? She does need to sign off on this because my doctor made me let me know that my wife had to sign off on this guys cannot go sneak off and just get ectomy and their wife doesn't she had to go in and actually signed papers for it and I'm not sure everybody's like that but that how in my urology office and yes I'm ten years. Thank you very much. I love my urologist and I do want to say well. He checks his wife. If you are in a relationship with a guy and you are done having kids and he is not wanting to me tell him to man up it. It is not a big deal it is outpatient. You Walk Right out into the lobby to your waiting family. You're not supposed to drive home because you have some you know anesthesia. Whatever but that's it? Yeah there's no I was. I sat in a chair that night with peas on my groin and the next morning I was fine. I kept waiting for the pain to happen. Didn't happen maybe everyone's ruins different. But I had very little pain from it a couple of days later I ran up the stairs of the rule. Okay a little early to be running up. And how can you get back on the job. If you know what I mean I I will tell you that. I think it's six weeks. Oh that's actually longer and really no big deal everything about it so guys get you the tubes tied or whatever he has a major invasive surgery so enough of that. Won't you now. You're not just going into a dude. It's so simple. It's so easy guys they don't WanNa what are just big wusses. I WanNa like knock anyone that takes the pill and enjoys it. But I'm just saying that like I've every single woman dated has been like all right. I'm going to take the pill and I'm I'm not going to enjoy no like no one's ever I it. Just it's so disruptive hormonally I feel like it's so disruptive hormonal I was on it for I don't even even know how many years maybe three or four years four years and I hated. It made it so much. I don't WanNa go back on the number again also. Isn't there a way like I've never been someone that tracked but where you can track 'cause there's certain periods where you were like you can't get pregnant right. Yeah it's it's fourteen days after after your. I believe I'm not a doctor so this could be wrong but what I believe is fourteen days. I think it's fourteen days after your after your first day of your period. I I think it's a lot shorter than that. No no no that window. It's that like twenty four hour what I'm saying though it's a small window when you can get your period like okay. I got my period on Friday so counting from Friday. Fourteen days from Friday is when I'm ovulating for like twenty four hour span or whatever twenty four hours a night that I think you have one day that you can ovulate. Yeah I think so. It's like it's when you're traveling or sides I can at certain spot. We hope to come here for their medical travelers in that way. But that way she's not having to do something anything you want you'll have to commit to the sect Amee and you're able to just do what you want without the fear of. Yeah you know I understand. There's will like there still risk. Obviously Alison detector. She is eighty percent. No Kid does okay. Yeah okay so this ovulation typically occurs two weeks before administration station so that means during an average twenty eight day cycle ovulation would occur around date fourteen midway through the menstrual cycle but obviously longer cycles would ovulation further back then fourteen so it just depends on your cycle and secondly is ninety nine percents effective. Wow and from there. The rest the cursor Google did it seems the longer you go after you get back to me the longer you go before reversing at the less likely to return that makes the worst part of getting the sacrament. I will say this. The worst part is that you have to bring in a sample of neighbor later and when I handed the woman at the desk my sample She looks really. I think our entire career path past the horizon that moment like what have I done to be sitting here collecting the sample from this dude. I felt so badly for her because I swear the look on her face was like another day another. And there's a forty eight hour window that you can have your egg fertilized okay. forty-eight hours quiet arrear and was looking. I was googling but I'm but I'm serious about this whole thing like I don't understand how we have come up with a solution like a birth control pill for men like where did that happen but but like if it affects what. We don't necessarily want that for the man either like you don't want but like why can they come up with something that doesn't make like everyone miserable Easton's point it can do anything to a guy it would never sell. It could do anything I got an what's most most innocuous side effects. It could possibly have. It gives you a slight headache for two hours. No not doing it. I have no pain threshold would never do it. Women just put up with this nonsense. Because that's the that's what we've created. Shall we really just. And that's our cross to bear it. Isn't it that being said. I'm a proud Conham user. I've got the Amazon repeat button. Sorry Vermont they've been on the shelf that could be an effective effective. I'm like Oh you're going to say we should get him from sponsor we have. Don't they saw something on the get them from like your local drugstore. Oh today Hiller interesting if it's faulty and it happened that way the not meant to be I'm sorry like friends then Rosler. They should put it on the box like Italy. Do loyd expiration dates on condoms. That would tell you but megatons. It's an email as you'd like some advice. WHO's forgiven back into some advice? I loved it by CIRMAC. Marinko advice about dating my friends high school ex. We're now twenty. Four years old so high school was a while ago. My friends from high school are all still best friends and we get together at least once a month even though we no longer live near each other. Isn't that great. I love that. Yeah the front. The twenty four years old at their high school friends once a month no matter what. I recently moved to a new city where James The X. lives we saw each other one that had a bar and talk for the rest. It's the night and now I've been hanging out. He keeps trying to make moves and I do like him but I keep saying. I feel uncomfortable because of the friend that used today Jayme. That's in that high school group. I've talked to the other the friends and they think it shouldn't matter anymore because how long ago it was. What do I do in this situation? You WanNa go first Tonya. Mind quick. I there's so many fish in the sea Ili district. Yeah by James and move on I I mean for me like I would have liked us. This is one of her really good friends that she sees all the time like and it was a long time ago on her front. Probably doesn't care but it's like I don't know no I wouldn't want to be making out with people that my best friends did right. I've done it. I've dated someone. My one of my best friends stated really awkward but we got through it. Oh Yeah I would talk to your friend. I would say the answer I would say. Hey I randomly ran into James. I know it was in high school school. But we're kind of like we are kind of having a moment but I I wanted to talk to you to see if you if you if bothered you or not I would downplay the bit Serena Brendan James. We hung out a little bit. It was really nice and I don't know I feel like I wouldn't mind going on day with him. But what do you think she's like if you can tell when gas. It's not like no matter what they say you can tell if they care and I think yeah but I think if she if she cares then I think you back off and find another fish in the sea. But I think if she's casual than happier what do you call it pickle. Have your cake and have your pickles. Talk about the heavier pickle expression. It's like have your pickle Alan it. Let your whistle whistle the episode and now we have one pickle. But don't let it way your whistle Rozov actually not bad. It doesn't mean anything. I have a story of acute story it really. You have ruled out everyone who's ever dated everyone of you know but I'm just sitting over here trying to set you up with Chris Souls who I almost got engaged. I know oh totally think I would like that really no. I don't think so but all we did was kids. We never did anything beyond that. It's not because like you would be Mabrouk. Look I know you would not care but I don't know I just George. soulmate may have dated a friend of yours. You'll know that and not a friend a best friend. Somebody that's in your like like core like I don't know I mean I I get it I do. I've been there. It's like especially if that a person has moved on and is in a relationship. It's kind of like all right. You don't get to like cover. Yeah no but it's not even like no like you literally would be like have add it. Yeah I think I'm surprised this is coming from you. The too many fish indices angle. Because I feel like your angle could be it. It is so rare to really vibe with somebody and that is truly vibe with somebody. You've gotTa make it work if you can. That's true. It's different when you're in the situation. If you feel feelings for someone all your rules that you thought you had kind of go out the window Just the truth. That's true. That's true. Okay if crystals and I ended up meeting and really really just falling for each other I would potentially reconsider i. I don't know how to sold allows weird. How weird other crystals on? Yeah Oh oh my my funny bone or you're right on the Mike. Stand all the past guys that I've dated in my life have only been been inside my mouth. It's true that's true but people But not my friends like not one of them has made out with Becca that you know I know you know it'd be great if back conductor w sneaking around behind your back dark I just. I don't know personal preference. I mean that's it's not that far fetched. It's not like you're so we're for not wanting to hook up with your friends pass guy. Don't get US wrong. I just think if you met someone in new instant spark he would consider more than let's say I met someone Abbas store and no. No no no. It was like somebody somebody that was like. You're that one guy I won't say his name. Oh yeah that's great so I didn't know I don't know I never saw or whatever and I meet him and I'm like Oh my God this is great and then come to find out. Oh shoot this is the same guy. Beckett dated high school. Maybe it'd be different. Do High School relationships have an an asterisk. Matz ask juris meaning. Are they different they were high. School are the somewhat less impactful than adult relationships. Asian ships and they'll less serious. I don't think so because so many people marry their high school sweetheart. That's different if evolves into an adult relationship that's different but if it ended in in high school year sailing. It's different if you went out with somebody. That BECCA has an as an adult had a relationship with the Saudi in Highschool Sheriff like a training wheels relationship a little bit. I don't think I would give to if anybody did when my high school friend. Well there you go. They're not fence. Yeah I mean and I wanna I WANNA CARE I kiss O.. Rien confident and love him. He's married okay. But what if he wasn't married and he wanted to go out with Becker. We're your neighbor Erin. Okay you'll be okay. Yeah it would be before them island. Okay okay but what if air hair using Aaron off that. She has a boyfriend but if Aaron one out with senior that would not I would not fly with me voice. Okay all right BECCA. What's your story so I get a dam from this girl who is a scrubber and she said that her parents were from from Shreveport where? I'm from Louisiana. But she never thought much about it because after college they moved Virginia and that's where she grew up whatever so she was like but my dad was telling a story and he you said that he said like his friend Chris Tilley which is my dad's name and she goes wait and show she finds a photo of my dad and myself and she's she's like is this him and he's like yeah that's him so you know. Of course I'm not sure if they're like best friends or just knew each other in passing so I was on the phone with my mom and I was like is data. Theo's like I just got this message. And this girl message me and said her dad brought you up. My Dad goes. It was so cute because my dad goes that was is my best friend in high school. And so he he was like we use in My email and my phone number so I can get in touch with him teary eyed loser. So cute cute lost touch. Well yeah because they want to see if they went to college together or what but they like Howard away and he was. Ah Did he end up going back to school to become a doctor and I was like DOT I. His daughter settled but it was really really great stories like so far like so much has happened. Yeah they lift so far now but it was cute than my dad like my dad's kind of very very not detached but you know he has his friends and guide. My mom always just been each other's best friend done everything together so I don't hear a lot about like friendships ships. Oh it was cute that he was not only just like. Oh Yeah I knew him. He was like that was my. He was my best friend. No really those those two guys back in the day. When they were in high school together they would love to know that their future daughters connection?

My Dad Mike still keeps in touch with his friends from medical school and college and stuff and like like literally made like a list of all of them text on New Year's Day like it's six so cute it's great. It's I love getting together with guys from that and there's not that many I do but when I do it's just it's nothing's changed I'm has not passed. It feels like time travel all because well look at that guy. He's old now of course but it's just it's like you're in high school again. You have the same conversation that the same rhythms and everything. It's amazing where we just talked about. How how it's so different being in a relationship but yeah your friendship? Stay the same. You know like those friendships. And those people like Laura we've been best for instance freshman year of high school and she lives in Louisiana. But when we see each other it's just like You know yeah we still feel like we're in Highschool Fund. Wet your soul mates life life. Are Your friends. I believe in that I do too.

Kelly again welcome. We are excited to have you. We have all been watching blink empire on net flicks have you. Have you been feeling the groundswell of of interest with the show. It's you know with the net flicks when they drop something in pick up steam it. It's kind of like going from zero to one hundred. What's that been like. It's been really overwhelming the spend a lot of support and love from present fans. So i'm just just getting used to it The other day they were like what about when you go out to people recognize your. I haven't left my house of like. I walk my dogs in a quiet neighborhood. And that's it. So i've been doing a lot of zoom interviews so this is my first in person and i'm so excited to have people. Are you a little bummed about that like all of a sudden you're on this new hit show and you know fun to go out and see a little bit of excitement come your way but in the pandemic you don't fully experienced that or it's a little bit because i'm like i want to go on a carpet. I wanna see people. I want to feel that energy. But the same time. And i feel comfortable doing zoom interviews and i only got to dress up like Up and down. i can just wear pajama. So that's been the good thing this show obviously was based off the movie crazy rich asians or kind of at least the inspired inspired by it when you saw that movie. Am i saw the movie. What what did you think i mean. I thought it was great. I loved it. Yeah and i think lot of people you know especially the average boring white guy was like. Oh what a. I didn't know a lot about that culture. You know and i think you interview you mentioned just how underrepresented just overall asian community is and kind of at least american entertainment. Yeah is that something that when watching it was inspiring or exciting. What was that like for you absolutely. I'm just proud inspired and You know. I read the book. Reservations when nina jacobson for spot the rights for the book. And when i read the book. I'm like oh my god. These are all fictional characters. My friends so that's when we start developing the project and you know seen crazy rich asians and how well stan It it's just amazing and hopefully with you know blame empire can add another barrier for the underrepresented asian community. And then i know he'd like your story is unique. Because there's a you know a lot of characters in ambling empire come from this kind of generational wealth That you know the the doctor the dynasty leagues you would meet emperor right and then But you are a little different right. You came when you're younger you move to chicago with your mother. Your father originally came out here but couldn't find work. He originally came out here. And then you know immigrants okay. When we came from mainland china china. We talk about family. Money is two generations because during the mau aerial they can a cleaned everybody out so when we came out here my mom. She did research anti cancer research at usc but she also worked two other jobs. My dad had come out here. And to wash carpets. And do this kind of job so it was a man. He eagle couldn't take it so he's like i'm going to go back to my high position job in china i'll be back and he never came back so so my mom stayed out here. She wanted me to have a better. And better educations So yeah everything to think my mom for. Well you communicate with your father at all not too much i You know we talk for ten something years and then about say like we kinda you know met up and you know chitchatted put as you know it just. It's so hard catch up ten years of your you know your pass and also there's a little bit of a language barriers while because my mandarin i can still speak it but it's not as good as before and he doesn't really speak english so we kind of just left it. There has a new family. And that impact me as much as i didn't realize that later on when i started doing a lot of self self-discovery impact me a lot of who i was the. I'm hopefully changing right now. You opened up the show talking about the you're previously married in a different life and you mentioned how your ex husband was arrested for embezzlement or something and then you the show just kind of moved on which i guess i get but i'm watching. It'd be like wait. What what what. What was that like. Can you give us a little bit more detail on what the hell was going on. And i mean i can't imagine being married to someone. Was it like you just found this all out like in one like one day did you wake up and realize holy shit. It was pretty crazy. Oh my goodness that was a wild high of my of my life. I'll give you the kind of shorter version i. I met him. When i was twenty. One he was twenty and then we were just friends and then fast forward. We got married. i was twenty four. He was twenty three years old. He was extremely successful. I really respected him at that time because he was immigrant like me. He's self made I million eighteen years old and so we got married and you know live the gray live but the same time. There was a lot of disconnect. So eventually i think about three years down the road. We realize it's not working out so we we were separated. We were living two separate households. i was spending most of my time doing philanthropy work at the time. So i i just got back from guatemala. And there's a knock on my door. I was a friday four pm and there were looking for him and i was like. Oh he doesn't live here. I like the fbi while it was ftc. So i didn't know what the ftc federal trade commissioner and so. That was friday at four pm. And then next thing you know all of our counter frozen so at the time we have in separate our our financials we have after. I didn't really. I didn't have access to his count. Because i just didn't care i have. I made my own money as high walsall whatever but You know and then like a week later. My credit card stopped working at a gas station. You know and then you know at that time. We're spending a lot of money on our black amax. I think it's four hundred k. Five hundred a month so also. You're like okay my credit card style working. What's going on so at that time. I was learning as i was going as well where he was auto subscribing people. So i don't know if you remember back in day when i come out you find a nine nine charge on your cell phone bill and kind of forget about it. You don't really look at it but when you have the call in. They'll cancel for some time. They will refund you. I have no idea but So he was. I guess to the brain behind. That was a pretty big operation where there are people from asia and australia involved so he was able to charge people ten bucks like anyone who had a cell phone yet. He got like he he was auto subscribing people. So i was. I was learning about that. Because i was reading. I was reading some stuff online. If something about like he was promising people like i think was a different one. That was on the web where he was promising. People like justin bieber tickets so you the enter your information. And that he was maybe charging people's i still have a chance to win or something. Yeah yeah something like the ts and cs auto subscribe. People are so fast forward. We end up settling for one hundred sixty million so all of our houses in chicago. Ftc ftc and that was not the end of it. just like i we. We owe you one hundred sixty. Yeah i know he was. I think he got like we The beginning i think he got a lotta lawyers on. Because i i let him borrow some money. My mom let him borrow some money for for legal fees. 'cause we don't know what was going on but you know it's family you know still and yeah and then afterwards you know all all my jewelry like we were one of the top buyers tiffany's at a time so like millions and millions of dollars of jewelry gave back six cars. I think in houses and chicago Here kind of all over so weird and then so really okay. Well this is over. Let's get back you know. Get back what we finalize her divorce. Okay to move forward with my life and the sake thing also was that the time i was married a money i was making had to go through day. Do dan so little crazy for your.

I know kingham Christine the longest. I've known christine for over ten years and king up. I've been saying almost here's what he described him yesterday. He's a only know him for yourself. and then You know. I've known them the longest. And then cherie probably after couple of people like kevin. an- anna are more a newer friends. Anna was introduced by judging cans was my producing partner. the ep for empire And then kevin we kinda not cast it in a sense where i were looking for like a single goal looking asian guy and we looked a lot of people. Yeah and then I saw him doing. I think tha tax haagen huffman post talk often temples and then i I reached out but he was living in east coast. Time in a friend of a mutual french. Do says he's or can move outs. La so he came out but we all got a hang out for about a year. You're before we started shooting so everybody kinda was very comfortable with each other and everybody's still friends nowadays and talk out. Let's talk about drew. Okay please please please please. The big elephant room talk about you. Well i mean. I'm watching it and the beginning of the show you introduce is your boyfriend and A and then. He had one of his many temper tantrums. Look what what's up. What's up at drew. You know back then it was. It was definitely a really difficult time of our of our relationship. We're going through a really rocky role You know. I'm not giving uses for the behavior from before. But he impressed me so much. Inspired me so much after the show we took about six months apart we were. We broke up after the show. We we didn't have a planet comeback or anything like that He spent a time really working on my solve and digging. You know dig deeper because they relationship takes to work. So i have my issues for staying that relationship and vice versa. So after the six month We've been spending time together again. And he's been completed from person because we're back together. Were working things. I'll He yeah because now even days. No chris he's like i'm having a heart attack right now really over blown away. I was watching it. He was screaming you know. Yeah the power. Rangers have a troubled past it. What is any day for me. I wanna look be beneath the surface i wanted. Let's dig deeper and we're in a. We're in a in instagram affiliation. Kinda society were in a society right now that people like to be around when times are good and when times are hard to kinda they kinda like to leave. Relationship takes work. It takes us much work as our regular work and you know the work every single day that if you wanna be with that person you now ju- obviously had a really bad childhood and You know we grew up very differently. Cultures very different But ended day. He's willing to work himself and he's willing to break up break You know degeneration trauma that his parents passed onto him and then his parents pass them. You know his grandparents mess on his parents so last time you know a lot of our stuff is from childhood and is really not our fall as long as we're willing to work on it and i'm doing the same thing myself to does he does. He hasn't yelled at. You has not yelled emmy and he you know it's funny things that he's been calming me down. Sometimes and we're having a disagreement. I really passionate. He's like okay. Let's take a deep breath. Let's check our tolls at check our volume and doing a break. You know so. We can continue do you to have a little off time before continuing. So he's been really respectful. I've also learned to set healthy boundaries. Because i didn't know how to do that. How long ago did you guys film her parent. It was before cova perez was end of two thousand eighteen so that was almost half years ago and and then recipes filmed in twenty nineteen. How has it been for him because again like people watching it. It doesn't come across great yet for for him. you know. we're all watching it and be like golly. Oh is he has. That brought up old wounds. I sure i mean it was. It was difficult. Watch we watch it first time together. Because i wanna make sure next to each other we watch it and i mean i was just like holy on him. I was sweating the sweaty palms. You know like you're really nervous and depaz a couple of times. Just make sure he's okay. You know it was definitely difficult to watch but for me. I feel like hey look. Let's look at our pass. How far we've we've came from that that person you know before two now He's definitely got got hit a pretty bad on social media. You know it was so extreme that you know and i come from the tv world. You always get a lot of questions of reality. Like powell. Real is it and that was so kind of outrageous that you're media like there's there's no way there's no way to show up on this show and be this much of an asshole to a woman in the year two twenty and yet your but he was he was as bad. You know what. There's a lot of things you know. How reality tv works if they trim a lot of things down so like let's say for example. You know one of our therapy sessions is three hours but down to really short as well as you know our talk after hotel room that got down significantly as well so we know it was just more of the yelling. Just getting down the yelling yelling and even if you were for three hours poconos are still. It was aggressive. Yeah another yelling. That definitely was was real But again no but Same time it just from trauma from he added a lotta bannon measures growing up You know an abusive alcoholic dad and all that stuff so so we talk a lot about relationships on the podcast and so it sounds like you guys are a good place right now. And that's great but if you were a woman came to you and said have watch a show and i feel like i was in a similar situation lot you even mentioned kind of toxic relationship was what are some things that you feel like. You've learned even in a situation where someone is dating someone who has a troubled past right or or their parents have an influence like were. Did you draw the line. Between all right. I understand where this is coming from but it gets to a place where either way i need to see some real growth and change because at some point. We can't keep blaming pass. You know like you know. You can't keep blaming you. Know like your your. Your dad left a new family that you've decided to you. Know control your own destiny like were what would advice. Would you give to other women who find themselves possess positions like you. You're right absolutely. I one of the things that's been you know. Been really crazy and mind-blowing for me is how many women has reached out through my damn and some of them. They really long stories about pass relationship. They they were in as well as really should they're currently and there's also people who have been married for who are still married to who are still married for twenty thirty years of kids together and they're in a abusive relationship i i can't compare my relationship with them because you know jews never physically harm you or anything like that But you know mental abuse is important. You know how do you break that cycle. We broke that cycle by taking time. Apar- we we. Were you know he moved out in the show and afterwards we completely broke up and we'd have any contact and it's really about how much how. How how much do you want it. You know when you work on yourself you know. I think that's most important instead of being code dependent on the other person. Take that time off. Focus on yourself. Be the best version of yourself. We can't pinpoint fingers you know because there's a reason for two people to be stay in relationship like that I think again just stat. Both people both sides how to willing to put into work to be a better version of the south and really dig deeper and going to therapy. Therapy works you know. There's a big stigma and wall especially in asian community. Asian culture huge stigma in therapy a mental health. But there's nothing wrong with you. Know therapy works and it really. It really helped me so again. Just break the cycle takes a long time I know it's hard. I know it's hard to get out sometime. I i know. I have friends who has been a relationship. Similar were were relationship as abusive were. They couldn't even leave you know and they had the pather back in the middle night to to leave. So i'm not in a position to comment on that but you just take time off. Get away and focus on yourself. It's meant to be. It'll be the but that person has to put into work and really show the work and dot action but a juror of friends. Think or your mom when you guys got back together because they seem to be thrilled when you guys broke up has been around king anna since the show wrapped up. Cherie i think i i think they spoke on the phone but they haven't been around. They definitely see a change. You know They they they see more stability and we just have to you know keep showing them that this is for real and this is gonna las- But on the day you know it's my life right with you. Andrew breaking breaking up. Kevin was like this it. Oh it seemed like okay. Drew was going to be this relationship that you started the show and then you guys were going to break up and then the real romance of the show is going to be you and kevin and that didn't like it seemed like kevin was really into you but like you even said you very much treated him like and he's like a brother were you never really and shit like how. How interested was kevin. How is drew about that. Like do drew and kevin ever talk as for some jealousy there since you end up going back to drew like what is that like does is does drew have a problem with kevin knowing that he tried to get with you. What what's going on there. I think you know at that time it would just. The timing was way too fast. You know andrew just just broke up you know. We were in a five year relationship. And i was like i for me. I mentally. i was not ready to today and kevin again. I've only seen his brother so I don't believe they've spoke after. Shore up I think we're going to We're doing like a slow social distance. Get together this weekend. Everybody gets tested beforehand So we'll see how that goes. Jew was obviously little taken back. That kevin asked me out so quick afterward. Oh like how much did you even know that. Kevin was interested in dating you until she asked i wasn't i didn't really know because kevin's a very flirty person. He flirts with everybody you know and he does his his personality. And that's why he so lovable right and so for me. I didn't really. I didn't think. I didn't think. I just kinda was like i didn't know till he asked me and Yeah but i. But i wanna throw wanting out you know. I think kevin. Kim will make a really great couple just because they already. They're already and they bicker like mary. Couple righties i feel like there's just take the next step. I also curious for the women in this room. i. I didn't think pancakes were as great as kevin thought. I was just like kevin. It's not the pancakes your face. That's why he's like. It works every time. I'm like because they want to have sex with you. They're just like it doesn't matter the kevin has right is is like he. He he women on a day. He makes them pancakes. And then he so the The women who want to hook up with kevin that can be like he cooked for me and then immediately they're also like no girl wants to eat a bunch of carbs. And that's what i'm saying. I was just like you bungee. Maybe have the carbs after girls like. Oh this is like pank art alicia and it's hard to once you don't just have like you don't have a short stack and immediately you know you're already filled up with car. How how can we take some more. How can you take some back. It's like it's hard i. Maybe the energy like kevin protein pancakes. Now it's not the pancakes his phase. Where his apps. I don't know kevin's going around. The pancakes are so good. I'm like no one's your face. But he did he. Try to make pancakes He did not try to making pancakes. I i don't know if kevin's go cook or now. Because i just didn't see him as No i never got pancakes. I would love if it's just like he just pulls out a box of bisquick right pancake recipe. I make scratch. I do a pretty easy. All your impressive nikola. It's it's like the easiest thing anyone can make. There's no reason to but that would be awesome. If he was like come over to my house. I'm gonna make you pancakes. And he just pulls out the bisquick. There's a seventy percent chance. that's what's going on. I think so too. I am pretty sure gonna find out can drew cook. Choose an amazing club. I i don't cook it all. That's one thing that i'm really not good. I'm really good at eating. And i'm really good at working. Pulse may but i'm not really good at cooking. Jewish an amazing cook. What happens if you don't like his cooking. I actually have never had addition like yet. So we'll see never really throws a wall. that's funny. I was just being up on a little bit but he was to watch. It was hard to watch. I'm glad you're happy. Yeah thank you. You guys still is therapy for you. Guys an ongoing thing. So we haven't started. Couple therapy I'm he's i got him on this program to I've been going to also once. He finished his his portion will. Do couple therapy after we're still living. He's doing his own therapy. He's on therapy. I'm doing here when you guys were going to show immediate. You guys went couple therapy and again. I'm not therapist. But i was. I feel like this guy has like work to do his own before you can dress relationship exactly you know. You can't pour from empty glass. You just gotta be you know for you. Have to be the best version of yourself for the other partner. You know. well he's very pretty does have that going for thank you. Are you living together again. We're not living together. We're still living separate You know we're taking we're taking things slow cause and a day. I'm like hey we're gonna be together for the rest of your life for the next you know how many ever years six years. Why why rush are you guys planning on his. They're going to. I mean that's been successful. I assume that netflix's already talking about season two. They haven't given us the official. Yes yes so. Fingers crossed wolf drew. Want to be a part of that after this rough ride you know. That's really odd to him. that's really up to him. Yeah what what's your gut tell you. I think he will be. you know. that's why. I'm kind of hoping for because again i will love. The audience. suceed the loving side of him. The side that so loving and kind should story. You know i were really loved audience to see that part of him You know that's completely up to him you know. How'd you guys meet. We met at a friend's birthday party. Ashley i think i think he was rather leave. I was when i walked in okay. I'm gonna stay longer and then Yet he asked me. I think a week later and meal a week later and then you spend sense. Paris was a big topic on you. Go to paris a lot or did you. What is that. Are people going to paris from the states with covid house over. Yeah right now. Everybody stopped traveling paris. I didn't go as much as you know. Anna windsor perez. Probably like two three times a month. You know i think wanna lines. I said into shows as a anna goes appears more time than she goes to silver lake. Which is completely i actually courted appreciate it. But then you guys. We're like in silverlake. Isn't that bowling alley and silverlake that you just wasn't there. She wasn't there. I wasn't there either. Yeah doesn't highland park highland park. Yeah i've been to that bullying bowling alley. Elliot pizza there. I wanna trump and try that Peixe the pancakes there though. Yeah that was funny. No i also believed to the weather know that she had probably been powers more than some hundred. You know but going to paris with anna was a completely different experience. One of the things they did they left out on the show which i wish they put it in because i didn't move the story forward Anna from as a surprise my birthday shut down the palace reside and we had a completely private tour. Jude did a split in middle of the hall of mirrors so we were running around and it was amazing. We we visited a little. There was so that does the theater there an upstairs luda thirteen have a siren where he has all his mistress and yes you know during the intermission of the play. He will go out there and do his naughty things so we were we going to visit there and then just hear the stories and it was amazing. What why was there brief nudity season. I've never seen on a reality boob. I have no idea as she heard about that seeing afterwards But just anna anna lives in her own world and she owns up to it. And i always say. Hey you know anna's world we all just limited. Was that like anna being like. I want the boob in there because i mean people get naked all the time filming right. Tv don't put it on the show. I kind of blown away. Reaction was so good to it though. That's why they kept it in in black box at are blurred out won't get it. I guess it's a whole new world was met. Maybe maybe that netflix. Hey we don't have to block blackbox in we saw kevin's by running. You know in the in the be on a santa in the ocean. Yeah for season. Two games a hand but yeah i mean i in terms of like just the show. Do you feel like were you happy with how everyone has represented not. Obviously we talked a lot about drew and yourself but just how did you feel like netflix. Dead or just to just the production of it all in terms of how your friend group represented and like in terms of the comparisons to the movie. That were you happy with it. Are you excited about it. Yeah i mean the first show. I mean i knew it was going to be good but it went beyond explanation to be honest. I thought was so well put together. It was a very well done a reality show. And you know obviously the representation wise you know you can only fit in so much for eight episodes so of course they want you to see a certain you know certain side of that person And that they will focus on the side. But you know the hopefully we'll get other seasons and which just keep keep expanding you know the narrative on different characters and all our personality So yeah but so far. I i thought they did a phenomenal job And i'm really happy. How whilst doing are you close with of the group like who would you call it a crisis I'm probably so close as with king. I've been closer with king since the beginning so yeah he so magical king just like just a magical. Happy go lucky person. His shoe wall went like who has a shula. When you walk into your apartment. I while that was amazing. Second of all the massage chair also amazing but like the shuo way. There's not like he has to put it in his living room because he's got that many shoes that's living the kitchen's like right there. Yeah like i'm obsessed. Yes so you know. King had a bigger house up in mount olympic up before he moved in his apartment and his shoe was a whole room by itself And you know he got into a little bit with his parents and he was like. I wanna make myself. I'm gonna blah blah's. He moved into apartments. So there really is no bigger just as you can't fit that those shoes in one in one room so he just put his living offers family. Cut him off or did he cut himself off. I don't know the detail so there was an allowance or something right thought he on the show and then who is the but thing going on the she was Yeah that's jamie jamie jamie's the youngest cast member on a show. I think she just turned a matter which was twenty so she must be like twenty three. Now i'm guessing but yet just you know she just wants to be influenced her. She's just she. Does this shopping. Just the shopping photo shoots you know. Go for her and king. he's what is he doing. is he still cut off or is he. I think his parents really happy with him now. he's doing a lot more real estate development So they you know they. They buy kind of rundown houses. Push alan. Will we ever get to meet his parents. Because i would be if he his parents are awesome. All my goodness his parents are sold loving and just awesome people but he has to and he and his two brothers had the chance of them coming on the show is going to be pretty small but maybe maybe in like fifths like super conservative or traditional. They're very private. no yeah letting him do that. Show was a whole other challenge. So his parents really. Yeah 'cause he's parents. Didn't you know the beginning. This is at the very beginning Of course they want to. You know the asian culture is keep a low key you know. Keep everything kind of private. So yeah and his parents also if you look at if you see them on a street you you can't tell them their billionaires you know his. His dad is always so casually dressed Very humble people with king his. He's he's not exactly not showing he he will the lash announced. There's parents he got a lot better but back then like i don't know if he still does a back down. We used to go to seoul cycle classes at the beginning and he's i mccain over a million dollars of jewelry just on u. s. o. Cycle i would like to hang out kings kings. Also you see that. Like asian culture dynamic like what you're talking about kind of seems like it came into like christine's relationship a lot on the show like with her husband's family yeah christine's definitely when it's when it comes family money and family while you there's a lot of restriction that's why you know in terms of like we have the money is like restrictions in restrictions is like dangling a carrot so it kind of thing innocence but there's also a lot of rules that you can't you know you gotta make sure the family's image is always good. Yeah there's a lot of a lot of pressure. Because i had a good mountains where you know trust fund baby on call them Definitely a lot of restrictions. Fanny money the the shaman. Who were did you guys find. The shaman. shaman was a my friend is really good friends with shaman. Derek and Yes oh jeez. Real shaman music a third or fourth generation. He's actually really known shaman. He's as a shaman. I guess they have special at gets pissed off. You know from other generations is it's po- polcy pass down the genetic and the line And they can read energy and they can tell you things. I i don't know but that was those my first time. Did it feel legit. He hit some really good spots. One of the things he said was that i still remember nowadays. Kelly you like to walk on eggshells you like to please other people before you carry yourself and that was so true. Because i didn't know how to say. No i feel horrible. Say no And i i tend to like if i feel certain way i like to dance around because i don't want her and was feeling so some of the things he said was definitely on the nose Cruiser could i be shaman like on our ass next. Do you think maybe. I have some chomping on love tom shannon. You could be one. I would love to have one shaman. Psychic anything i love. What's it ever swingers shaman. And a psychic. I don't know how washington reads more energy. I chapman. I was like that's like me without a bit. You know i didn't have the you know. But what they what they did not. So that's what. I wanna know energy. I think it's energy. It was the weird thing they show. This part cat was. Kevin's turned to do to shaman and cabinet camera. She threw up. He was he kept throwing up so that apparently was you're throwing up negative energy and dan guys husband was also there And heat and believe it. He didn't wanna go and he went last He's a he didn't believe it at all. He actually blacked out. And then when a shaman's like move your left leg he was moving. His body was moving but then when he woke up he was like well. What happened he start. He was coughing. He was shown more of that because what they kind of showed made. It seem a little hinky august. I think they cut it pretty sure. Yeah they got a pretty short. But i mean all of us were really. We're going to really deep problems. Really you know issues. Talking about kevin's Bannon issues and because he was adopted and not knowing his birth parents and king how he needs to know more his power and getting you know way bees individual with his family. And then jamie. Tom and then you know he's jamie. You gotta know your your choices and know that the choice the right choices and with with inci you stop getting answers from everybody else and i know the other shopping for back. I never want to buy yellow or red. And where's the what. But that was the funniest report. Did you get a chance. Because i know you weren't there but did you get a chance to meet the pi. Who is helping fine. I did not. I was not involved in that story line. I didn't know. I think i was too caught up with this guy where you is amazed by how interesting he was. In general his character is because i was like he was. He's a real pi. I think so. I think it's a real. Pi kinney's have his own show or something like and would just find it. Amazing why he he was like he was like a pi but also a therapist for one. Find this to you really want to really want to just see you know. He may not love you. Keep you the answers you're seeking and he's gonna wanna meet kevin. You know she. We're not eating. He's gonna wanna meet her anyway. And anyways i was like how do you use your support. Yeah and he'd died goatee just it was the as a character. He was a true character. The pi the shaman and then there was the dance that was a it was was it. A yoga clouded. The sexual yoga class was there was a lot of the on the mats that were like to matt's put together that kept slipping like they weren't yoga mats like the non main characters like the guest stars. If you will like where you finding cash right. it's amazing and then also came. Kim's mom she'll hilarious. I'm like i'm a kimmy. You're gonna be brickhouse show. Yeah it's a allowing a lotta great characters on the show which is why i am assuming. It's it's doing so well this. It's there's really no boring personalities on the show so it's it is fun to watch I mean before we played. Do you know me encloses thing out. What are just some. Are there any things that surprised you about the experience or are there any misconceptions like you mentioned a lot of people d. Ing you and things like that and anything in terms of setting the record straight That you'd want to the people the now As they digest more of the show. Yeah i think one of the things. I was really funny was an king a lot a lot of shift where was that he told He said kelly told me she likes anal. Have never sat down my life and then you know was just kidding. Just kidding. My mom washed that. She's going to look at you differently now. Next time was andrew with that. You know he obviously see. Apparently afterwards they had a pretty long conversation about that. You know what we're were at dinner but he got out. Yeah so you're here to let us know that you never told cain that she never told them matt told she's not saying she doesn't doors saying she didn't tell anybody. There was a key to it. The funny thing was cain was like your business. Woman make guessing endorsement the auto. But this morning i got a i got a email from. Ah a website that promotes sexual wellness. I i don't know if that was the reason the email me you know could be cubby. Maybe there's something they are. You know. Adam and eve not a data. I know that one. I'll probably would use something whereas okay they'll get free free things. Okay sponsor of this episode. Great i give you my mailing address art before we let you go. Game explained to me that. I will subaru. Okay call do you know me nervous. Okay we're going to ask you. Some questions does kelly. This does kelly that at. It's all across the board. Don't answer right away we're gonna guess the answer. Okay you can say yes or no. If there's like a story behind your answer feel free to share okay. You don't have to okay. We we endorse sherry. That though so it's up to you. Yes right all right. Do you know me with kelly me. We question number one. Has kelly ever asked someone out on a date by sliding into their. Dm's has kelly ever asked someone on a date by sliding into their dm's feel like kelly is a rather traditional than the dating space. Likes a man who's gonna pursuer. I think she would but at the same time. She's on entrepreneur successful woman and to be an entrepreneur. You have to take risks. You got to put yourself out there. I'm gonna say. I don't think and say now. She thinks she ll. I don't think she a mark cuban. She deemed a guy while maybe not saying. I want to go on a date with you but she has deemed guy for the purposes of liking their face. It wasn't even if she tried to position it as working day. She really just like she was like. I think you're cute. I don't think so i disagree. I think she would only slide into the dm's maybe she would respond to somebody sliding into hers. But i move. I'm just saying.

Adam Egypt Mortimer on How to Build the Perfect Lookbook

"This episode in all of our south by southwest coverage is brought to you by black magic design. Hey, everybody. This is John fuseco. And you're listening to the new film school podcast. Burst leaders feature like many others truck on the festival circuit is the result of an enormous amount of careful planning obsessing over details about thirty two pages or says words to be precise in pre production for Danial isn't real Mortimer created, what he calls a style guide, which is essentially a heavily detailed look book that breaks down every single aspect of production for the key. Members of his crew. This includes not only notes on how the film should look aesthetically, but also the reasoning behind the choice of gear for each shot. And how each scene relates the medically to the broader arc of the story the guide played in a central role in both keeping the crew on the same page, and allowing keep production members to keep Mortimer on track if they saw him straying from the mission the mission in this case was to convey the harrowing story of troubled college freshman named Luke who resurrects his childhood imaginary friend Daniel to help them. Cope, the film features a few young members of Hollywood royalty in its cast with both Patrick Schwarzenegger, and miles Robbins. Playing schizophrenic duo. I sat down with Mortimer for a case study of sorts back at south by south west. We take a deep dive into the process in components involved in creating the perfect book using his own work as a guide enjoy. Hey guys, this is John and I'm here with Adam Egypt Mortimer director of Dana wasn't real, which is a midnight film that I saw at south by last night. Congrats, thank you on the premier. Glad you got to screen for the first time. I mean, it was just insane to see a movie for the very first time in a theater, like that with all those people at midnight was that the first time that many of the people that, like actually worked on the project had seen it as well. Or. Absolutely. Most of the people who. I'm trying to think I mean, the editor, of course, of course, all the whole movie and the sound designer was there had seen the whole movie goal and the producers. But that's it nobody, you know. And we had the production designers department, costumes. We had line producers and all kinds of so many people there. Oh, yeah. And none of them had ever seen casting twenty he's talking to the casting directors. And it's like they were so deeply involved with the movie so long ago. And then they don't really hear from us, and then suddenly bloom, here's a Finnish movies, so. I think it was intense experience for a lot of people to see how it finally turned out. I mean, it's one of those movies that, like, I can't even magin someone who was involved like seeing it for the first time, seeing because there's so many different elements that come into later on. All the character design like the. DC GI, trippy sequences. And of course, the sound score everything coming together like that is a real treat for an audience. I mean, and it's a treat for the filmmakers to go through that process. You know, the fun thing is like how, you know, I had a co writer on this so regionally for years and years. It was just me and Brian Little world like writing it than about it. And then it becomes certain point comes you work with the producer and me and Josh Waller, and, and then Noah specifically of the four people from specter vision, where we're just worked so close, I worked with Dan, for years on the script, and then you get your cinematographer who is on this who is live, Vincent. And then suddenly, he's the most, he's, my creative partner in every decision, I make is sort of working with him. And then after shot, it's that you're in a room at the editor, and it's like everything else, disappears and every intention, you add goes out the window, and you start over with all this footage and on this project because we had such a wonderful sound designer. Her and sonic elements, that became a whole because the edit is done, and then I sit down with Owen who are sound designer, and we worked for weeks and weeks and weeks and weeks on developing the soundscape of it, which becomes a whole other like really close partnership. That's a, you know, to, to have so many different people that are like your, you know. Completely integrated with them and then move onto the next person's rate. It's very interesting. Sort of relationship, and I guess it sort of puts in a focus. What a director does every single one of these people were better at doing what they do than I am doing what they do. And but to be there from the very beginning to the end, and make sure that it's the thing that it was supposed to be, I guess, is what a direct it's like you know, having your vision and being able to implement the other key members of your crew to make that happen. You're not the person that like necessarily can make everything happen. You know. And you gotta be open to giving over to letting the people who are masters at these things, do what they do. You know, we're talking about this look book that you creator style. This isn't a look so, you know, the process of creating visual elements for this. I did have a credit, a look book way back when we finish writing the script. And that's something that is sort of, like it's your first stab at what would I do as director different from what I do is writer, and it's a sales tool. So I'm sending people the script with the look book, saying, would you like to do this movie, and I think sometimes people will read the book, I and which is sort of cheating, but they might be like this is the exciting easy thing to read, and I like the vibe of the movie, and that's really helpful and sort of selling it. And also getting people interested in why you wanna make the movie what it's going to turn out to be once the movie became a movie that was actually financing. We're gonna make. That's when I started making this thing called the style guide and idea with that is to. Have a document that shows with his much clarity as possible, every element of what the movie is going to be, so that when I'm hiring people, they can look at it and know what I'm looking for in what they can bring to it. And, you know, day to day, I'm referring to this thing everyday when we're there on the set going because it's a way to go back to all your themes. When somebody says, do you want this red or this yellow coat go? Well, according to our style guy. It's also a good way to kind of suss out your potential collaborators can away. I was like showing the thing and then be like, oh, yeah. This is how we can build off of what you've already. And it's a really great way to maintain the thrust of what a director is doing is trying to maintain a very clear vision in the face of having all the chaos and all the different creative oysters coming in how you controlling that. So having this document was away because sometimes I would talk to somebody like I was going to when I was in. Interviewing people hire like DP, if they hadn't seen this, sometimes they'd come on and say, hey, you know, from reading the script, it feels like you know, maybe you want to just shoot it all hand-held Dutta, I'd say, I'm gonna send you this document. It'll tell you exactly imagining it to look and then we can speak again. And you'll tell me how we can achieve this, this thing, and they'd and they'd read it and go, oh, okay. So it's like the, you know, so it's just so helpful, and it was production designer Kate McKinnon was, like so excited to get this and see that I had thought through the meaning of the colors and the movie I can tell you do. Table of contents here, and we can, you know so what's the first the first pay? Well, I, there's a page just some stills from paintings and shot from fight club and just colors and things. And then the, the sections are themes, and this is the key like you look at the teams everybody says you make comes from the teams. And, and that's a really great way to have the movie be consistent and meaningful so teams and then camera and staging, which let me see if I can remember what that was about. Yes. So, so here's the big phrase that I used for the Cameron staging and this movie was isolationism versus kinetic maximalism. Wow. And the idea was said at the beginning of the movie, you know, Luke is a character who's really lonely or alone. And so it was like, what does that feel like 'isolation, est? And for example, there's shot early on where we're looking through the window when his. Sitting in the window in his dorm room in college, and he's in this little square and the rest of the frame is a brick wall, and it's very flat, and he's like, just sort of imprisoned, and you can only halfway see him through the glass, and it's to me, that's like a metaphor for the way he feels that somebody who's isolated. He's on the phone. There's nobody else in the frame, you know. And then Connecticut, maximalism is what happens once Daniel gets involved. And then suddenly, the cameras flying, you know there's a scene early on where they walk into a walk towards art gallery in Brooklyn. And we had the camera operator. I lean standing on a Dali so we were pushing her on a dollar to keep up with them. And then whip panning to other people whip panning back to them, so that it has this kind of, Mick, the mix of Dali move, which is structured and beautiful, but the energy of, of hand held and the idea that we could find ways to move the camera around and move the lights around and keep things always moving and dense, but not, not so chaotic that it's like a born identity kind of movie, and these are things that, you know, just from those two terms. Coin for this film. You were able to talk about with production designer with your cinematographer, so you can sort of build this language for the scene cells, and then throughout the movie, right constantly, like I remember we were scouting, our location for the extras where the colleagues was Lucas at the beginning of the movie and. I was saying to Kate, the production, designer said should be making some signs that say, you know, like fraternity signs or or join a club or things like that. And she said, no, because this part of the movies, 'isolation, est, and so we don't wanna feel like there's all of these social opportunities. Let's try to film, the school, more starkly production design really vibe off the theme. And kind of keeping me on track because there's something sort of more, maybe the more realistic idea would be to say. Yeah. We need these join a club day. And you see those in college movies, a lot there's a lot of activities. And she had the wisdom to pull us right back to the theme. And right back to this sort of a static design. Yeah. Totally n I mean as, as the film builds, as you get that Connectik maximalism. You're in like party scenes, and there's a lot of people around, and there's a lot of lights, and there's a lot of like crazy shit going on. It's very frenetic the pit like the pacing of the movie and the actual like. Scenes, just feel like exploded to the isolated, and we did that in, in the sound design as well. Some of the earlier stuff, it's, it's, I mean, there's, there's a prologue, that's quite, dense and crazy. It was with the little kids and then you know, it's very quiet at the beginning. You know he's he's alone. There's not too much sound. And then we just cranked up to eleven as it goes. I had to wear earplugs in the sound mix, because you when you watch the movie for one hundred minutes as loud, as possible, it's a cool experience. But when you're there for twelve hours, going back and forth over the same loud, moment, it starts to sound so loud that you make the mistake of thinking it's too loud. And suddenly, you start to like kind of second. Guess yourself and go like, oh, we gotta pull this down. We're gonna make it quiet because just to mites crazy, but it's just because you've been listening to for seven hours years of ringing, so I was sitting in the sun mixed stage with your plugs into. So I would sort of be immune to the like, brutalism, which was the very thing I wanted to create like musicians like metal musician. Essentially, you know what's, what's next? Yes. So. Then I have point of view and coverage. And this was a huge challenge in this movie because one of the characters is not real. He exists, only in the mental landscape of other character. And so we had to figure out a way that we could. Depict grounded emotional reality these two characters, but also make it feel like one of them is sort of in the in the mental world. And so we had these really specific rules about, like, we can shoot Luke clean. But when we shoot Daniel, he should be dirty like you should see pieces of Luke or other people in the shot, and we have to make sure not to shoot wide shots where it would look like somebody can see Daniel when we shoot a wide shot, the person looking at him has to not be in the frame, unless it's and then we had certain rules like that, and also wanting to show Daniel with a much longer lens, so that he would be both more sort of seductive, looking and more sort of a selected in his own world, so that when things which around later in the movie than we change all the rules and shoot the people differently because their relationships have changed however. Win. We're shooting a movie we constantly break the rules, also because, you know, suddenly there's a moment where we want this to pop in certain ways. So let's not follow these rules, but being really aware of the rules like and it tore me off to think about, like it is was really. It's hard enough to just design cool coverage in a scene, let alone when you're like, okay, it's cool coverage and also person can't see him, and we want it to be Connecticut maximalism of cameras to be moving, but has move. It's like it really gives a headache. So really obsessing about those rules, which is something that I had done early on. And then once we hired Lyle Lyle, and I talking together about these rules over and over and over again to the kind of consternation of anybody else around us because because people don't always realize, like what is going to be because people will say things like, well, the audience doesn't care and it's like it's I'm not worried about them carrying I'm worried about creating the like the unconscious recognition, this unconscious feeling there. Gonna feel something and then they're gonna feel it when it changes again. So that was something very specific to this movie that we had to think about a lot. I think like having such deep knowledge of the rules. It makes it much more impactful in those rules are broken. And you know what I mean? It really can like Shifter movie in completely new direction. You've got to be opened this discoveries while you're on sets you film and even late. And in post to like some of these some of these rules, one following us into Sonics so early in the movie we didn't fully Daniel. He's walking around is swinging swinging his his broomstick and you can hear the sound of a sword, which is what he's pretending it is. But you can't hear his footsteps. And then later, there's a there's a scene about halfway through the movie where they walk into the steam tunnels and things become really sinister. And Daniel has these incredibly loud footsteps, and it represents I did that he's becoming stronger. He's weighing on Luke's mind. He's gaining kind of power, even though he's not actually phys. Physical. And I think all of that stuff followed from the thinking early on about the camera, what your notes on coverage look like in that in that book. Is that in that sow guide is like plot? Are they like actual plots or diagrams of how you want the just alert? It's a list of rules. You know, a bullet point list, and they are. It's all like I mean they really are like rules. There's sort of like physics rules. It's always possible to see Daniel behind other characters that was something that is a really important part of the design of the movies that he's, you know, there's a lot of scenes where Cassie the character played by Sasha lane will be talking to Luke and interacting Luke and thinking it's just the two of them and then Daniels right behind her looking at her neck or like yet, right there jot menacing. But if he came around in front of her that would violate rule true never show in over of someone facing Daniel, so what we did there. You can see it in some of the stuff with the mom, is that if we want to do. A three shot. It's a profile shot. So we're looking at it sort of objectively, instead of being like over somebody looking at Luke becomes very problematic. Luke and Daniel on the same side of three person conversation. This is something that we called Luke's omniscient head because Lyle, and I took a Buddhist approach to the cosmology, we talked about it, like, what would see like Buddha sees the way that Luke sees the world? So there's something objective, but it's an objectively through Luke's point of view singles of Daniel. Keep him tethered to Luke. We about making him dirty as win possible. There's a rule about how being over Daniel when he's looking at somebody else, careful of lines and then true objective shots troop checked, if shots are fun thing. We do every so often there's, there's a scene, where Lucas essentially cheating on his logic exam, because Daniel has all the answers written on his naked body, and, and there's, they're looking at each other and interacting. And it's kind of close shots and medium shots. And then we pulled this super wide shot where you see the whole room Daniels, not there, and Luke is sort of staring and writing non-answer, and that gets a laugh, every time we show us, which I loved that, that, that got a laugh, I think that's so interesting. I've seen that in a few movies here now this this week. And I I love it. I've ever really noticed it before I came to this vessel the true objective shot, where it's like, okay. We're so in this world now person like the music is, is, is like in the movie of the world of the movie. But then you just like you break the music. You break any sort of firsthand like experience. And it's just like you see it as an observer in reality, totally, it's really fun. It's the whole movie was shot on a Morphou cleanses on vintage lenses. But when we did the objective shots are spherical. Oh interests. So there's this really subtle total difference in the way that we're seeing the world and these objective moments as as opposed to the, the subjective. And so that was it. And then I think the rest of the pages about which lends it, we liked to shoot. Daniel went to eighty five millimeter lens, and it cetera et cetera things like that. And these are things that changed as we started shooting at again. It's like having this having this battle plan. We talked about something. The nays last night after the premiere where Patrick plays Daniel said, you know, we've rehearsed these scenes for a long time, and then we just changed everything when we shot, and I was and my response to that was well, we rehearse them so that we could change it. Because if you don't come in super prepared with rules about a plan, you too panicked to be able to for spun to what would be better in the moment and makes it harder to play, you know, if you don't have those rules. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. What's next? School next section. So this is colors, which is just super fun. Yeah. Yeah. I did have stuff on how using shots from other films depict, the idea of how some of that covered stuff with shore. The colors is a series of, of color, palettes max with images that has to do with different parts of the movie that it's like it's like cinema for listeners, it's like cinema grids, if you follow Graham. So I pulled stills that were sort of in the tone that I was looking for and isolated what the main colors were created my own pallets for it. And it's like this was the idea the first part of the movie that's in these tans and cool greens and blues that goes along with this solution idea. And then when Daniel enters, now, we're introducing warm colors, like, like red and purple color that I kept calling Oltra violet, which was supposed to be sort of Daniel's, otherworldly, and also exciting color, and it's not just on him. But it'll be like now the go to a play. They go to a an art gallery and that hap-. To have neon colors that relate to him. He's brought Luke into this whole new world just thinking about, you know, characters in terms of corresponding them, like with colors, I think is an interesting way to actually build that character. Absolutely. And so that's another thing that became really helpful for the production designed to understand. Well, what part of the movie are we in? So what should this scene looks like which the walls look like and then also the costume designer Goania with Luke is only ever dressed in blue and dark colors, and khakis whereas there's all of these callers happening with Daniel? So everybody can use these, and then we use them for lighting cues and totally insane. This ending the movie which we recently started calling the. Miles. What did we call it the labyrinth? Labyrinth of mental hell. Which is a labyrinth of middle hell. It's sort of like the final gasp of the of these colored designs. And then suddenly we're seeing these wild ultraviolet Neons and is like, really terrifying oranges colors that have only been hinted at before that, but I agree I mean color, color stories just like it's always exciting things. And when I was able to do it even on my first movie which was an incredibly small movie, but on leveling a little bit into the realm of Bamble, higher like an amazing production designer and things like that to really be able to express these colors is just such a joy and director. It's a great entry way and to character, I mean production design creating the vibe, these feelings, it's like, how do you how do you tell this story, which is really leak dark scary story? But how do you how do you tell it so that it crackles with the energy and excitement is required to do this, and the all the all the violet moments are the, the more? Colorful, I think warmer moments that you're talking about happened with that Connectik? Camera movement. You're using too, so you get to see like everything kind of inner, we've there, you know what I'm saying? And then I have a long section on production design where I pulled. What does the colleagues look like? What does the doctor's office look like what is the apartment look like? And these are just very helpful inspirational things and then I wrote up a little history of the apartment Luke's apartment that he lives in with his mother and sort of a back story. I mean it really it's like a narrative story on how Luke's mother grew up there. It was it was his grandmother's house, and when who was in a hospital, and when, when Clare was put away for a while, these things that really aren't quite in the movie, but help us to establish because, you know, you go into thing, a movie like this, and you're like, well, I wanna have peeling wallpaper and, and pages everywhere and all this cool texture, but we can't just. Can't just be like this random like a lot of harm movies are sort of like, and then we are in a space that looks like the bathroom from saw doesn't make sense. I thought we was working to marry it. So I felt like the house needed a really concrete history that would get you know, it's based on the psychology of the characters in the house is really representation of Luke's mother's mind. And how do we depict that? It's a funny you're it's always like it's got to be the truth. It's gotta be about the characters it has to come from the narrative, but also it has to be awesome. And sometimes the thinking thematically or narrative can lead to into this trap. You're like a well she's a boring person. So let's shoot in boring room, and, and why is it in a movie, you know? So you have to figure out ways that the theme and the awesomeness can connect, I think that's a really important can even look at it from the reverse angle where it's like, oh, you have this awesome idea, and you know what the awesome parties. But now you have to write the narrative behind justifies actually, you gotta make sure that those are connected. And I felt like on this movie. That was that was a really important part about directing that I was learning was don't be don't be impr-. Listened by the narrative, so that you do something boring. You know, make sure that you're always making it awesome. So how do you make it awesome? In the way, that, you know, that makes sense. Yeah. Yeah. Then I have a whole page on Daniels physicality which, and I don't wanna spoil anything too much. But they're the nightmares quality of this movie was that I didn't want. Although, Daniel's imaginary character, we don't wanna present him in his ghost Lee stirrings Lucent. You know, it was like, really because his desires, or very physical and very primal on violence sexually. So there's moments of transformation and. Where I needed to establish through. Really? Heavy hitting imagery. To everybody working on the movie, what would be certain? I mean, especially the actors, I'm sure. And then there's a page. I'm going to skip because it's too much of a spoiler. But it has an incredible. The one piece in this book that was made specially for us before we started shooting there's this incredible creature design, but I can't talk about it. You gotta see the movie and then you know why there's an incredible creature in it. And then. The style guide kind of wraps up going through the style sections of the movie and the movie was broken down into five parts. Okay. Interesting. So that we can kind of look it on the day things get so hectic, and you're like, oh, my God, we're shooting, scenes, sixty three and we ever really thought about what scenes three and you and you look at the thing, and you go, we'll scenes threes in the manic section in section is a lot of camera moves, and lens flares and color. Okay. Let's you know, I mean, I have already presumably worked out with all the shots will be. But having this idea of, you know, that there's going to be an evolution to style like it's more than a shot list, because it's sort of like an arcane shop. Yes, yeah. Yeah. I'm always thinking about it in like, how do you like no sequence should be an ice 'isolation? So the so the movie needs to sort of start looking one way ending another way. And there's a there's a an arc that you can follow that gets you from one place to the other. And then within even then within those. Sections broke it down into sequences. I really over thought it, although I think that over thinking is like such a bad year. Exist. This is the job. The job is to think through, you know, and then, like I said, then you think through it, and then you get rid of everything, and then the last like fifteen pages of this thing is every single scene, and I'll just say, like seeing thirty two tunnel theme. Oblivion. And that was, I think that's a in the script that's just a shot of subway. A subway car going through a tunnel and I wanted, you know, anything in the movie, I had to have some Matic connection. So every scene has like a theme. Every scene has theme, you know, Daniel and Lucan the aftermath theme forgiveness and then it would say like visual unnaturally dark visual, Daniel hesitates in a door frame. And then maybe some el-sayed things like this scene is breath, Lucas guilty. Just like all these little things, so that when I then sit down to make an actual shot list, or when we have to throw the list away because we've got five minutes until election. Right. We can't do any of the things I designed before these. No. What was important about the heart of the scene? Always there. And so that goes on in the guide and I think that's that that basically takes it to the very end. And then I just had a I had a one page sort of cheat sheet that broke down. So I could look at it when I was onset. No sort of where we are in the overall structure. So did everyone onset have this available to everybody? Sometimes if people asked a question that I felt like would be answered in this, I would say, you know, it's in the style, but people like the production, designer Kate, and the costume designer for going head both really poured through it really. Understood in by the time I had met them for the first time in pre production, they had things they had their own diagrams and samples and sheets that all were connected to these same. We were always able to communicate and say, okay, we're in section four of the movie here. So there was an Lyle Mataka for grooved with this stuff too. And so between those three department heads is sort of the main yet relative influences. We all were very aware of the stuff, and then whether or not as you go down. Whether it like the. The prop master was super aware of that stuff or not. I'm not sure when was the production, designer's job, sort of overseeing make sure that it was all going to connect right? And I mean, something like this is beneficial in pre production production and post all all the way through, just like so, so cool, because it's even early on when we're scouting locations. I can show it to the producers and say, you know, I know that this one space, we looked at that's available and cheap is cool but remember in the style guide. It's that kind of thing. So we were always coming back to bow great. I mean, this was an awesome case study. I don't think I've ever done anything on gas. And hopefully, we'll get we'll just get like a, a page of give you something, you know, I'll give you something that you can post to the listeners because I think it would be cool. They just sort of see what it looks like. And then some day after the movie is released and everybody's already seen it, and it won't be spoilers anymore. I will eventually released this whole thing as a PDF it. So I'll probably, yeah. In that happened or something I'll hit you up. And you guys can sort of follow up. We're always looking for this kind of stuff when I was trying to learn how to be director was so hungry for stuff like this. So happy to make it available. Well, thanks, Adam. Congratulations, appreciate it. Awesome. Awesome. Have a great south by southwest. Thanks. Thanks for listening. If you like what you heard.

Angelo Ponzi your host here at the business growth cafe. Thank you for joining US each week we select from a menu at topics that can impact business growth to discuss with experts my wide variety the of disciplines and today at the Kathy I'm very excited to have Patrick Schwarzenegger business futurist keynote speaker and author with his recent book anarchy ink on our show to discuss A._I.. Machine learning disruptive innovations and other technology Asia trends that will impact Your Business Growth Patrick welcome yeah. Thanks so much Angelo happy to be here with you. I'm really excited about this conversation. Book getting started want to give the audience a little perspective about who you are in about your book in the things you do to living yeah sure so I I've been following technology trends <hes> since two thousand six and ever since two thousand seven. I've been basically a speaker fulltime so I really spend most of my time. Just going from different conferences really all around the world and I've been following technology trends and of of course that's a moving target so early on who is in the Social Media Space Digital Marketing <hes> but then moved into the big data space and that of course evolved into the Iot the Internet of things and all this proliferation of data of then led to machine learning and that led to artificial intelligence so I also cover blockchain and some other topics but they're real heavyweight right now is artificial intelligence and what they call robotic process automation and it's having a huge impact on businesses. There's a lot of jobs that are probably going to he displaced as a result of this but that also translates into profits for business so it's a complicated issue but it's fast moving topic and it's one that's really fun to dig into so when you talk about how it's going to impact jobs yeah I think in your in your book you wrote does a study the <hes> by Oxford University that estimates about forty seven percent of American jobs could be lost in the next twenty years so let's let's actually go on that tangent for a little bit yeah. Let's talk about this robotic <hes> hypnotic process automation our I love it. Actually is used for a company called R._P._I.. Was Not that it was a different different R._P._I.. Yeah exactly well in the most simplistic version you can you can break down the tasks of jobs in this country or any country into repetitive tasks and non repetitive tasks and what's happening happening is that the repetitive tasks are being replaced more and more by automation and this study which came out of Oxford and says forty seven percent of American jobs are at risk of being displaced believe number one believe it or not forty seven percent was actually a low number a a lot of the other countries where much higher like China was seventy-seven percent India was sixty nine so it's really it's it's a stark example of what's going to happen but also the assumption there that when people hear that statistic that we're going to end up with forty seven percent unemployment right and that's not true either the human beings are incredibly creative and the entrepreneurs are gonNA fill that space and take advantage so I think what's going to happen is yes. There's going to be a huge shift in the job market and a lot of people will lose their jobs but we're also going to see an explosion of creativity and a lot of new services and a lot of new things that are out there that really people have not even thought about you know up until this point when I think of <hes> one of my clients that I work with works with high school kids and college college students about identifying their career path so one of the things I would in listening to this is I'd WanNa sit there and tell them you really need to investigate that career. Path that you might be picking because it might not be there you know as you go on in life. Is there any kind of guidance agents you can talk about you know from that level and the way that students you look at that. I like the repetitive <hes> aspect well. That's exactly and actually you <hes> there's so many different directions we could go but but as far as what young kids <hes> young young people today should be looking at it really falls into two buckets on the one side you have the stem fields of course which is science technology engineering mathematics and that you know that area is exploding. There's huge demand. I have two nephews that are both really strong in the software engineering space and they're doing fantastically well but then on the other side you have creativity and human communication emotional intelligence and these are things that machines are really difficult add like you have for example the comparison of doctors to nurses and so we automatically assume doctors are safe and nurses aren't but that's exactly the opposite because it turns out that the vast majority of appointments you have with a general practitioner involves really just a couple of dozen diagnoses and so that is actually quite repetitive that it could be replaced by some sort of an interactive interface meanwhile the nurses have to have emotional intelligence and they have to build trust with their their their patients and compassion and empathy. Those are things that computers are not as good at so. I think both those <hes> <hes> are necessary but the overriding umbrella between the two is being critical thinker and a problem solver. If you're a critical thinker on a problem solver you're willing to think outside of the normal structure rated the classic phrase think outside of the box it really is true. The more creative you are and you can train yourself to be more creative. That's GonNa make you more valuable in the in the future either way okay is there obviously these changes are evolving. It's not like we're GonNa wake up tomorrow and light changed range but what are some of the industries are kind of business functions or groups that are really impacted today. Ours is that are really doing it well versus some of those that will benefit down the road versus benefit so that's a great question so that the early winter and artificial intelligence where the recommendation engines and so he on Pandora and Net flakes and we go to Amazon recommends other products we might be interested in that was the early winner of A._I.. But that's almost kind of old news today it's been out there for a few years is already so what are the new ones while the big ones are <hes> what they call n._l._p.. which stands for natural language processing and that's you know you talk to Syria on your phone you talk to Amazon Alexa? You talked to Google home and that technology is getting much better very very quickly quickly right now at particularly the ability of the of the computer to add context from one question to the next week and talk about that if you like but but the the big <hes> people who are affected there are the call center workers so even today when you call your bank it says as you can say things like check your balance or make a transfer right well that and it's clumsy today and people get frustrated but it's getting better and better very quickly and it's going to be not long. There's three million call center workers in the United States alone those. Jobs will increasingly go towards automation because it's cheaper imagine the H._r.. Nightmare of hiring thousands of call center workers and getting consistent protocol delivery and and people calling in sick and there's so many challenges to move automation is a big one right. I've got to more okay yeah. I WanNa hear him yeah. Let's do it so the next one is the commercial drivers so the autonomous vehicles are coming much faster than people expect and there's really three areas so the the most number of unpredictable obstacles in the city driving less than that is on freeways hub to hub long-haul freeway trucking and then even less than that is agriculture right and the agriculture the autonomous tractors like the combines in Iowa. They're all being driven by satellite so that's already autonomous today right. Go ahead say is that is that remote. I mean it's it's it's it's something sitting there piloting that from a distance or just based on programming in the predictive I mean it depends on the harvesting company okay but the leading harvesting companies like they will map out a farm arm you know plot of land literally to the square inch and they will they will have the they'll be people in that combine but they won't be driving. They'll be doing other jobs so that's already happening today and there's actually a company called case I h which is out of Silicon Valley they actually down in Salinas and they're developing autonomous tractor which is pretty cool but so then the trucking the long-haul hub to hub trucking forty-seven percent of trucking rates are the salary of the driver so we're talking about if you can it's incredible so if you can get rid of the driver ever you've got a two to one price advantage over your competitors and I'm willing to bet this right now. We're at the end of two thousand eighteen I think by the end of two thousand nineteen some state in the United States and I have no idea which one but someone is GonNa pass legislation to to allow hub to hub long haul trucking and once that starts. It's going to move very very quickly. There's three point five million commercial drivers in this country and then the last one is retail cashiers so the Amazon goes store has no cashiers. You just take what you want. Walk out of the door <hes> earlier this year. I think March two thousand eighteen if I remember correctly in China the First Person Lists Bank opened where it's a branch while that's crazy the lights go on. It's eight thirty in the morning. The doors are unlocked with his. Nobody there so that's there's three point four million retail cashiers in this country so between those three were at ten million. Let's say half of those jobs are probably going to be gone within say seven years. Wow I think I saw commercial last night. <hes> I think it was for Walmart actually and they were talking in the lady had her APP Open and she was scanning her products at the end she basically paid on her phone and walked out the door. Yeah and that's exactly so these are all the things that are happening and I a lot of people don't appreciate how fast this could start and what you really have to look at is the financial incentives where the largest financial incentives to like to propagate these technology so in the trucking industry imagine a trucking company that has a two to one price is advantage in the industry. Every other trucking company is GonNa go full speed to try and match that they're going to have to go very quick. The same thing is going to happen in retail stores now. The interesting thing with retail stores is when you have fewer people working in every individual location that that lowers the break even point to justify opening a new location and so what we find like exactly what happened in the banks the banking industry in the eighties when the A._T._M.'s were released because the required fewer human salaries lorries per bank branch it allowed banks to open more branches in so now we find bank branches in every neighborhood whereas back in the eighties you only had a branch in the center of the city right and we will find we'll see that as well with retail stores where we could see a lot more retail dell stairs open in less densely populated areas because it's cheaper to open an individual location. Okay well the the one you commented on which is customer service folks and being more more efficient in their in their call centers in their automating. I'm looking forward to that. I can't tell you how many times I'm screaming at the phone going customer representative customer representative been called crazy man a few times and the looking forward. That's one of the ones I'm looking forward well actually. Can I say something absolutely because this is an interesting thing so I it's it's eight age related and I'm forty seven years old but the older folks. Let's say people whose ages start with a four or five or six on average they liked the prefer talking to a human being versus talking to a machine but the younger kids in their twenties and thirties they prefer talking to the computer because the computer has all the answers already and they they're confident that they know all the the answers were as a human may or may not depending on if you've got a good person on the phone or someone who's not quite as good so as we grow older. The young kids are GONNA a start to prefer like where we would prefer a human being. Perhaps those younger people increasingly are saying. I don't WanNa talk to a human being at all. I just want to deal with the website at end on exactly yeah I think think about this and and you know I remember Schwarzenegger. As course the original terminator and I always think Terminator when I start having these conversations yeah but you wrote a line in your book I want to read it to you and have you kind of talk about it. <hes> dramatic increases in productivity will diminish the value human capital algorithms and robotics displace literally hundreds of millions of jobs so I mean we're having this conversation. Can you expound upon that a little bit that is probably broader ominous to me than than some of the conversation we've had so far share. Why and you know the the title of my book is anarchy so I do expect? I'm not expecting violence in the streets but I expect a very decentralized libertarian evolution over the years ahead because it's going to be every man for himself every person for themselves as I should say but you know I if all of these when I say hundreds of millions of jobs I'm not saying just here in the United States but I'm really because we only have about one hundred fifty million jobs here already one hundred seventy million perhaps but around the world certainly automation could replace race that many jobs since so there's going to be a lot of transition into new fields and and that could cause a lot of anarchy and a lot of disruption and in fact we already saw that in the two thousand sixteen election of Donald trump whether you like him or not doesn't matter but at least not for this conversation station but there's a certain percentage of the population that feels like they've been left behind and they're not being taken care of by the way the economy is evolving. Will whatever percentage that is. Let's say it's five percent ten percent. I don't know what the percentage but it's going to grow so more more people are GonNa fall into that category and so we see this playing out all around the world with Brazil going with a populist <hes> Electoral Victor and the Philippines would deter day and early on in Turkey and you get into even in Germany. There's implications in wilders offers in Amsterdam and you go around the world and there's ton. This trend is happening everywhere because people do feel increasingly left behind and they have a right to be frustrated right. These people started losing their jobs. In the eighties. The blue collar jobs started to go away in the eighties eighties so the for thirty years these people have been have felt like no one's really paying attention so they have a right to be frustrated but that's going to impact our democracies in our social evolution as a result okay. I heard something on on the news this weekend in. I'm GonNa read it to you and get your comment on it. Said data is the new oil and China is the new Saudi Arabia. Wow The U._S. wins on A._I.. Research but China wins on implementation and the premise of that is the reason they're winning on implementation because they have ten times the amount love their population using phones are gathering this data. What are your thoughts on on that China? I mean that's another thing I think people here in the United States. Don't appreciate how much progress China's making arguably they are winning in a lot of areas already already and you look at just infrastructure spending. This is a leading economic indicator so if you build a deepwater port for example it's reasonable the four years later you're GonNa have commerce going through that port. That's a natural evolution so by looking at WHO's investing and infrastructure so you can get an idea of what's going to happen in the in the years to come percentage of G._D._p.. Spent on infrastructure investment is the highest of any country in China eight point eight percent by comparison. We have two point four percent India five point six so they are investing heavily and infrastructure infrastructure and that's a major major advantage in that applies equally well to the technology sector and the government there which is not democratic which we might say is bad but the fact is democracy is a lot less efficient than an autocratic system. I'm not saying it's better you know one way or the I'm just saying they get stuff done like they don't fool around and they are actively promoting and supporting their major technology players including ten and Alibaba and and you know we chat and all these these Wa away they all are are very heavily supported and they are so they don't have ten times our population they have about four times our population roughly but their penetration for mobile pay as an example with we chat pay and Ali pay is way higher then we have here so they do have enormous data and they're making investments. They WANNA be an A._I.. Leader I would argue that they might be there already they are they are doing some very very. They're very aggressive and they're smart. I mean I'm not saying there's a lot of things we can criticize China about right but we also have to give credit where credit is due and they are taking strides and we need to be aware that because we compete against that in a global world exactly also in your book you talked about social bought Syria Google now Alexa Cortana so what is social technology and how's that going to play a role in in really in our lives and marketing what kind of businesses are gonNA probably be early adopters of that and beyond and yeah how's that going to work while whilst the it falls into a couple of categories so chat bots generally refers to human being talking to a machine via text <hes> social bought refers to a human being talking to a machine versus natural language like actually having a conversation and there's people define these things a little bit differently but that's a simple way to look at it and then there's this thing called the turing test which is <hes> gentleman by the name of touring way back. I think the sixties but anyway the idea is at what point can the human being he no longer distinguish the machine from another human being and via chat bod in other words via text arguably were already there so people are ready are at a point where they can't necessarily tell that this is a machine because it seems so real it seems so human but on the social bought it's less oh it's behind right but that is what we talked about this earlier. That technology is evolving very quickly right now. So the question is where is it going to propagate and there's really two different buckets there and the first one we already talked about. It's the call centers and and I think that in the years ahead as little as three to five years most large brands will have to have some sort of natural language interface to communicate with their customers particularly the younger customers so that's GonNa come very quickly but the other one is companionship robots and so <hes> companionship technologies where you could have companions for like in other words robotic companions for seniors you can even have believe it or not robotic companions for for for middle middle aged people even single men were seeing this propagate where these technologies are there and we have to keep in mind for example that there are there's a deficit of thirty million women in China compared to men of the same age largely a result of the one child L. Policy so thirty million men are mathematically incapable of finding a female partner is a forty million deficit in India seventy million between those two countries so that is a market and it's a profitable market and so you see development there as well so it's really okay call centers on the one hand and companionship on the other and that's where it's going to propagate now. That's really interesting you know I think <hes> all this as a result of data saleability of data yeah and I am in and so let's talk about out that a little bit I mean I have a market research background and you know I grew up doing qualitative and quantitative we got into some predictive and prescriptive analytics and things like that and and <hes> to another business one of my partners investing his time in machine learning and things like that but were scratching the surface compared to much larger organizations that are really investing in this in really competitive from competitive standpoint seems like those those have the most data wins in this kind of ballgame so so let's talk about data and competitive advantages and I think also we again in your book talked about the fact that the price of access to data abilities store data is all shrinking and making a more availability so yeah I mean it's and that's so there's there's data processing data ban with data storage and those are kind of the three pillars of technology and the cost structure is just collapsing so it's getting cheaper and cheaper and that's why we see this proliferation of data but it's very true that these large companies technology infrastructure the structure providers people at Google facebook and so on our in an absolute scramble to try and get as much data as they can as quickly as possible and the best example is actually precisely the social bought example that you brought up a second ago so apple apple gets their data from Siri right usage data google gets their data from using our phones and Google Home Amazon gets their data from Amazon Alexa with their install base so the question is where it is facebook get their data so just recently. It's some just recently Amazon that little sound that we got somebody you'll give best on this. The Sun So facebook released their A._P._I.. Allowing regular businesses is to tap into their messenger platform and use their messenger technology to create these interfaces that they can use for their own customer service needs that is a brilliant move by facebook to get access to data I would I would imagine in and say three to five years that there's going to be tens of thousands of businesses all around this country using Facebook Messenger A._p._i.. To deliver their customer service needs and that gives them a huge trove of data right. We'll see the same thing in Thomas Driving. Tesla Tesla has something like four billion miles driven using their autonomous technology so they have a huge data advantage and all these proofs of concept like the all e bus in London and New Tani whatever in in Singapore and there's now ways. Has a license in mountain view and <hes> and Las Gatos in the bay area. These are all <hes> pilots and proof of concept and they are trying to get as much as they possibly can as fast as they can cause. That's the currency of tomorrow and that's machine learning the number one ingredient to make machine learning work is data. Everybody needs data the more the better and so it's a race like facebook paid nineteen billion dollars for what's APP. Why did they do that? They wanted the data they were losing the younger generation Asian. What's APP had the younger generation? They paid nine thousand nine billion dollars to have access to the data. which gives you an idea? How valuable data is right? Well other things we're talking about. Are you know I'm taking the perspective big organization so is we kinda start to wind this down. Believe it or not yeah what is small to medium size businesses. How do they really compete in and not get over that barrier? I mean even when I talked to a client about market research I mean I think they see big dollar signs. It's like oh I can't afford to do that. Yeah and what I'm doing is getting the voice of the customer customer. Fuel has nothing to do with this kind of data collection. So what are some of the recommendations that you might make the to that kind of small S._M._e.. Beside of the business yeah well that and that's it's actually my favorite I mean the simplicity of this is incredible but the way this works is the large fortune one hundred even fortune five hundred companies they invest huge amounts of money to develop these new technologies to be there I but then what happens after that while they they find out the early use cases that are profitable and where it's really working and then that technology he is incorporated into the enterprise software providers like E._R._p.. Like S._A._p.. For example or Oracle or EPA core B._N._B.. What does that B._M._w.? or BE WM software anyway. There's a bunch of different <hes> e._R._p.. Platforms and also the C._R._M.. Platforms arms like salesforce dot Com Soho and all these things so and there is incredible capabilities built into these softwares that a lot of the S._M._e.. People have already paid for but they're not utilizing so it's just like Microsoft Excel everyone has it. Everyone uses it but they actually use five percent of the capabilities is ninety five percent more that they could be doing like pivot tables or whatever else macro so that they don't know how to use turns out the number one easiest thing a an S._M._e.. Company can do if you're a C._E._O.. L. Of a live a medium sized company the number one thing you can do is bringing some trainers to train your people to use the software that you've already paid for and get them to learn the new capabilities because it's already there. If you learn just how to use what you already have many times you can see huge improvements in operational efficiency and you're you're actually not getting anything beyond. What you've you've got already? Well Okay I want to just real quick on <hes> virtual reality and augmented reality yeah <hes> my <hes> <hes> my wife works for a large cruise line and they just launched their new ship and they have a a room where the entire ship was in virtual reality and that's how they would go and they would build the ship and they would take tours walking around this so his mind boggling and and now watch the video the other day so where do you see augmented reality in virtual reality going from a business standpoint while you having you. There's really I guess three areas. There's just a store story earlier. This week of a company. I forget was a Boeing I forget but they I use virtual reality to accelerate the development of a new design of helicopter. <hes> dramatically accelerated the development cycle so there's one application just there but there's I would say there's two main things that are happening with and we're just waiting for some headset to gain gain broad-market adoption which hasn't happened yet but it will one day and when it happens this will all happen very quick number one training applications to to to allow people to do training and much cheaper virtual environment but number two every large H._p.. To See Brand company selling business to consumer they're all going to be in a race to develop increasingly immersive increasingly dynamic experiences that are going to be available on their websites for anyone to peruse and so we're GONNA see a world very soon where someone could literally spend all day doing a hundred different virtual experiences. Oh my gosh did you see the one that Ferrari just announced and all the Coca Cola one was Super Fun and Burton snowboards has this is one spread like crazy. It's going to spread like crazy and it's we're going to see a situation where the virtual world is competing with the real world and for a lot of people in our society the virtual world will win and that will contribute to the anarchy that this book is about all right fantastic pick one last question as a business owner. What keeps you up at night? You know what keeps honestly so I spend all of my time every day all day trying to keep up with the changes and I have a hard time doing it. I can't imagine imagine the challenge for regular. C._E._O.'s that have a particular business that they have to focus on and at the same time keep up with all these accelerating changes so the thing that keeps me up that gives me anxiety if you will is that the pace of change is accelerating so so much that it's hard to keep up with at all even if you do a fulltime the way I K- I think we have to wrap up here Patrick. Thank you so much. It's been great <hes> discussion and so why don't you tell the listeners real quick how they can get a hold of you and and about your book and things things like that <hes> sure of course the books available on Amazon. I appreciate the opportunity to be here with you today and and if anyone's curious about myself in the work that I do the easiest way to get that is <hes> is actually to go to book Patrick Dot Com which is a little subtle call to action in there but my last name doozy so it's a lot easier to just go to book Patrick Dot Com and that's the that's the work that I do and I I would love.

When Girls Are High Maintenance

"The bramble. Hey, guys, it's dropping into talk to you about my favorite dating app, which we all know, I talk about dating apps quite a bit on this podcast in that is hinge hinges and amazing dating out because actually designed to be deleted, which is basically the whole point while we're trying to all be on dating apps as to find them on and then delete apps. So I love that about it. It super great because you can totally off your personality which in the last episode. I read you guys, but my profile looks like what the questions are that I answered and I love it.

I was like no why I don't know have problem. We should double date all Brindisi in. I'm hoping it's going to happen everyone. You know, what if I do have any regrets? Do I regret talking about my dating life so much on here? I can't decide, but if you do go on dates, and when I go on dates, I don't talk about it anymore on here for sure. Oh, I honestly, I know I probably wouldn't I feel like I if I'm actually in him the tur- exactly if I'm not in him. He'll tell the world turtle dude was too early on in this podcast before I knew better. And I went to full force into it. Granted he was like really nice. A lot of people ask actually like there's a lot of loose ends that we haven't tied up. You know? It's funny though, pot are trying. Flustered thing about the boy, I am so Pless stirred. There are a lot of loose M's that we've left on this podcast. And I get a lot of questions a lot of people still ask me about turtle dude all the time. But like was that three of this podcast? It was like so early on because I met him the night before we think it was like you. It was early for granted now, and I like I don't anymore like talk about like actual dates and things anymore. Not because it was like a lesson learned, but I was just like I don't really like want to. And it's like now just talking about like pass things once they're done. But like once something's like action on her when its current. I don't talk about it anymore. I wouldn't want to do that. I don't I learned from my lessons from that. But I don't even know if that made any sense what I just said. But I feel like it's a lot of people like ask about stuff that's going on. Now, I've learned to like not talk about it on. He will also I think more even more. So it's like once you put one thing out. Oh my God. Yeah. There's people don't forget. Yeah. It's like that's like your TV show like putting some like being like, oh like, they're dating. And then never falling back up with it. And then you really ever happened to them like rooting for though. True. So true story like a story about it that way. Well, turtle tonight didn't work out. Unfortunately, he was really really nice though, what the best part about turtle, dude. I think is that the whole time Alicia was like, you know. This is like a rebound for you. Right. You know, it's a rebound. I was like, no. I love him. We're going to marry you. I'm so it it was. What he was really niceness funding. Like, he's a super nice funny. As I feel like I know the dude and I never met him. He was super great. I actually really liked him. And I hope we do hope he's doing well. But. At the end of that loose end closure wishing the best. Sure. She. She. Okay. So if you're isn't listen to last week's episode we talked about our favorites things that we're currently loving. And we thought it would actually really fun to do. Just think you know, like are worse. The opposite. I had no idea where you're going with that. But I guess it's kind of true. You know, like worse situations we've been in worse. Just honestly, I'm a I'm a luck. I think I'm a lucky person. But also at the same time very unlucky were like pretty bad stuff like weird stuff happens. And so I just love to like dive into some like fun stories of just like, you know, worst blink memories. But you know, what? Everybody knows like a worst haircut story worse period story. And he's always something. Oh my God. You know, what sparked this idea for me this morning? And this is what I was gonna talk about this. There are two references. I made last episode I put worst celebrity encounter because I was talking about living at my apartment complex. I was gonna talk about. Oh, yeah. I feel like we should shut out the things that we referred to in the last. Okay. No last episode. I mentioned briefly about living like should. I just kick this off there. Okay. So. Yeah. This this was a pretty bad celebrity encounter. And then I thought we should do an episode about it. So I talked about how in the in the last episode I live in an apartment complex that has brought me so many wonderful things in my life. It brought me Whitney Simmons and black her like so many great people that I love also it brought me my ex next door neighbor. Can I say his name he won't listen to this? Patrick schwarzenegger. So long story short basically move into my apartment complex, and I remember when I was while I was moving in like pass the trash room on my floor. And this guy was throwing trash out tracked. And I throw my and I'm like walking by were you living up on? Well, it was we'll see it is. I think it was like maybe half to. I'm just trying to give them the real picture and everything I was actually I could tell you it was denim shorts away shop and probably baseball hat, and it was cute timber twenty sixteen. I think is when I first moved in there, which is still crazy that it's been two and a half years there already. And so I remember walking by the trash room. And he was throwing trash ways a chi-. Welcome to the building. Because it was apparent that. I was new and I was like thanks and I kept walking. And then I literally got into my -partment closed door and shrieked which he had to walk by my door, and the walls are pretty thin. So he probably heard me, but I recognize him. Because at this point. I think he had just dated Miley. Germany data alley or I recognized him from the right there are gonna ground. I music video which either way he's super q and I've actually forgot he dated Molly until just now. Anyway, as he continued to live by me for maybe like six months or so literally next door to me. And so at one putting remember I got a knock on my door. And he was asking if I had the key to like one of the mailboxes, but like not our own mailboxes, just like one of the mailboxes in the mail room. And I was so like starstruck. And like in love with him that I literally was like, I don't know. And I gave them my whole key like, my parents hausky my car, Keegan Michael key ring. Take my heart, please. And he was like left, and I call my mom like crying. And she's like, you're so dumb. Why would you give them you? Literal karki. You don't know him. He could steal your car was like he wouldn't dare never anyways. Like, look instances like that would happen. Obviously. He literally couldn't have cared less about me. And then at one point mea also lived in my building with me. And we thought it'd be so funny one night if we stripped down to our bras and underwear I'm late in the hallway to pictures in front of his door. Taking pictures completely sober by the way, and we're taking pictures without was so funny, and we're gonna Lang on the floor, and she's taking my photos, and then all of a sudden are new I think I was taking her pictures. And so then all of a sudden adore we hear door opening and I just sprint to my apartment. I leave her behind she's laying on the ground and literally his roommate like walked out and walked by. And we're like, well, I wasn't there because I left, but she was like, hey, he just kept walking. And then I just like random, and this is like that would happen anyways. I finally go to Hawaii during January. So like a few months pass by where neighbors. It was. Sorry. I get humiliated so easily and I'm humiliated for you right now. And I just needed to take a second to like, it's still it gets so much. I know, but so much I needed that second head, it's debris breather, break my mind. Now, I've recovered, obviously. So yeah, January I go out of town and he moved down. I think whilst I was out of town. Which was very rude. He didn't even say goodbye all our tender moments. We shared, and so he left, and but he was like I will say he was always really nice. He's a nice guy. And so then. Full circle Coachella last year or VIP were hanging out. I've been lying drinks. Oh, yeah. Oh, yeah. I look in front of me gets his because he was in front of me in line. Just buying some drinks. Not even Patrick Schwarzenegger. He's there with his beautiful model girlfriend of I know her sister. She's so pretty I mean, I don't know hurt. But like I saw him and me a few drinks in thinks. Hey ram. Let's go talk to. So I walk up. I'm like, hey, he's like, hey, what's up, and he does not know why I was like do you still live at blank my apartment building? He's like. Yeah. I did. I was like, yeah. We used to be neighbors. He's like cool. I have a good day. I was. I was sad. And that's why I remember being like, oh, I just saw him. And I was like oh my God. You're like, yeah. I talked about the apartment I was like what? I think that was a good idea while he's with his. His. Like, a couldn't like, I don't know. I just it's like holy. We're we're going to be friends. The fact that we both used to share a wall. You know that really brought us together. Oh, yeah. It didn't. But that's my worst. I think that's my worst liberty encounter. But you know, what?

I thought of this actually left like just recently because I was trying to add more list. And this was probably the worst that I've ever been hit on like. Ooh story. I told you this you probably forgot about it. But this was not that long ago. This was I know exactly what you're going to you. Don't helicopter. Oh my God. Yeah. You do. Yeah. You do because I had the helicopter tonight before from a different guy. We were like, oh, what's wrong these helicopter? Oh my God. Okay. So this was like maybe October November ish.

So I was there for a bachelorette thing, and we're all just getting dinner and hanging out. And I honestly looked like not Q. Like, I remember and tell me why I swear guys always like hit on you more. When you're not as like done up. Tell me why I swear it's a little less intimidating for them. Maybe. So basically, I'm at this really busy place in this dude comes up, and you see I can vibe off people. So I already knew his whole like I just I knew it wasn't even with this. I don't wanna give it away. But he's myself that is with his parents, none. I'll get there. So this dude is like, hey, what's up? I'm like, hi, literally. I'm not even getting like not even into it whatsoever. Like, hey, like, whatever. And he's like, yes. So do you come here often? Like, I know I know I know you how do I know you and I'm like, oh my God. That was like now, I don't think we know each other. And this is me I could have just walked away. And of course, I'm stupidest in it literally. He's like, no, I swear like do you do like do do do do you a lot of digital events or something? And then for a split second. I was like, maybe I like, no you or like, maybe I have met you 'cause fun facts. There's actually been multiple times. People will come up to me in the industry that we were like feel so sketch the industry we work in. Like within within social media, and stuff, managers, etc. People from different brands, whatever from the business side of YouTube. They'll come up and be like, hey, what's up, and I'll forget, I forget people easily sometimes and I forgot that like one time. There was this dude. I had just had a meeting with him earlier that day sounds like me, vid. And I'm sure he had been drinking and there was like a dance floor. And he like this guy is like looking at me. Like, yo. And I was like no not in like, I thought this guy was like trying to hit. I mean, I was like not terms like Nettie sorry. And I like cutting like by whatever turns on the Duda had the meeting with like earlier that day, and he was just trying to say, hi, I'm felt so embarrassed. I was like oh my God. I'm like home. I it was so obvious. I didn't know who he was. All right, sir dark. I just can't. I literally earlier that day we had like an hour meeting like. Larry so needless to say that happens a lot. So when this guy was like, oh, do I know you like, oh shoot. Maybe I do know you, and I was like, yeah. I like I go to a sometimes by being so vague. I didn't want to say YouTube or anything long story short. I'm going to summarize. This guy's like, well, do you knew this guy like whips out his phone and like shows me this? Shows me this photo. And I'm like, I don't know who that is. You don't know who this is. And I was like, no he goes, that's Elon Musk. And I was like, oh, I don't care also. And it's a photo, you know, Nealon. My the thing is is it's a photo of him with Yuan Ma. Okay. Sorry that makes it a little better. Just still that'd be. No. It's a sort of him with him. And I'm like, no, I don't know him. If he was just trying to share some facts about. And like I knew the especially at that time. Like, I still don't even really know what he looks like. But I know the name, of course, you know. Yeah. So then he was old. That's me. Obviously. So then after that, he then goes, we'll do you know this place, and I was like no his own my parents own that. And I was like okay to see where this is going. I'm not gonna lie to you know, what my parents. Yeah. Yeah. And then oh my God. And then at this point, I think I was just kind of like is like a game. And I'm like, dude. What else does this do? Violated dickey. Okay. What else is happening? Then he goes. Okay. We'll do you know this guy another photo of him with a slob, dude. I forget who this guy was but some big hotshot dude bigger than Eli musk, apparently or whatever the last one is it gets me. Proceeds to show me third photo. Also, he's in this like pimped out like maroon sue like he was like fully like dry. I wish go there alone in maroon say'don't litter he's dressed he has this key carries himself with sweat, like he I don't know whatever the third photo. He like he shows it to look at this. Helicopter. It's like this like Grand Canyon. There's a helicopter and I'm like, okay. Cool. And then he like slowly zoomed thin to the helicopter, and I see him wearing headphones. Sunglasses driving this helicopter flying this helicopter and goes dead silent three seconds. It's like zoom it on his face. I'm like, that's me. Oh my God. What am I doing gonna go sorry by just leave? And I was just like was that him really trying to hit on me? The real question is who took the picture of him in the helicopter impressive. If you ask me, it was just so funny. And so comical, and I was like oh my God. And then I takes him. I think it told you about this. And I was like these are the guys that hit on me tags. I remember. Funniest thing ever. Oh my God. What did he look like he weighs? He was tallish had blond hair. He reminded me of the class clown in high school who was like try who like, where's parents not? There were parents in my head because he said his parents own credit. Okay. One. There's not that many places in Malibu, we did some digging. After over we tried to like. Where it doesn't exist know it existed, but I couldn't figure out who owned it. Yeah. Well, it was fun. And I was like does this work for you do like genuinely curious actually know what I would like to know. I would I should've asked before. I love wonder why out the door. And then afterwards, I just walking around. And I was like oh my God. He's trying here. Miami of just like the typical class clown on your class who like I don't know. Just tried just tried to hard. And I was like Wow Did. The helicopter, and then something happened with you with the helicopter. Yeah. That's a good story too. So I tell that story after story I went out one literally I think it was the same night because you didn't come out. It was just all United when you really wanted me. No, no. That was the night of turtle dude because I was gonna come meet up, and I was going to go to your turtle date. And I was gonna stock you and driving home from the bachelorette thing, I was so tired like you're exhausted hearing about his helicopter. I remember I wish you'd come. Now. I really wish powered through just how to red blur something he was killed anyways. My helicopter story. I thought that was the same night. Maybe it was like the night before. 'cause I remember be like why what is up with these guys in their helicopters? There's a guy that came up only number just like hanging out at a bar, just like chill and straight hill. And and he all he went to get water. I was just like standing there. And then all of a sudden this dude out of a soon as I left slides, and it was like, hey, I was like, hey, man. And it was like I forget what I think he showed me a picture. He wasn't flying. It though, he was standing in front of a helicopter, and he showed me as phone, and he's like you see this. And I was like, yeah. Knees. Like, that's me too. Cool. But while I was talking to him you should've whipped out the photo of us in front of the helicopter. That's that. That's me. And I'll he comes over like mid the while he's talking I was just having a normal conversation. And then all like, all he's very protective of me. If you didn't know he's like, my my mama bear, and he like comes over and sold lambs the water down and the guy was like asking me for my phone number. And at this time I felt like I had to fill all gated. And so I was like, okay. So I gave him my phone number. And then all these like goodbye oil gave I'm so like all e okay bye. I felt bad at that time was nice. And so then he left and then the next morning I woke up to a text that was like, hey Remmy. So nice to meet you. It was it's the handsome something at the are the met last night. If case you and seventh picture with after I love to take you for a ride, and then I blocked. Nameless. That's funny. I mean to the point zero zero zero zero zero zero zero zero one percent of guys listen if you do have a helicopter. I don't think it really. No, no. Here's the thing. What would be so much more of a turn on is? If you don't say anything about it. And then I happened to find out. I'm like, whoa. Oh, that's a flex like. He didn't even tell me about that. Like blacks, soft legs, love and. Yes, I think that when it's just a little too, try hard. It's a it's a little like, wow. I need a huge helicopter game and sating very. Anyway. Let's go ahead and pause the podcast, really quick. Because I would love to talk to you about third love. I know. I know I talk about it so much, but you guys there's a reason I've never had a perfect fitting bra like my third love bra UNITA try it right now. It's amazing. I know you've been contemplating it just do it. You'll think me the reason why I'm so obsessed with it is because they have over seventy sizes. I don't know any other bra company that has over seventy sizes was really awesome as they have their fit finder quiz. So basically, you can go online and take a quiz Superfund, easy and figure out what type of bra size and shape you actually need. I found out that I'm a half size, which I didn't even know you could be a half sized abroad. Because it no one else does anything like this. So that's why I love it so much. I've never had a brief it this good. And if you don't want to listen to me, they've actually been over twelve million women who have also taken the quiz. So I feel like that speaks for itself. Another thing that they do that. I love so much is that they have a one hundred percent fit guarantees every. Single customer has sixty days to wear it wash it and put to the test. And if you don't love it just return it and third level wash. It and donate it to a woman in need, which I think is amazing third knows that there's a perfect proffer.

Fifteen percent off your first order, go to third love dot com slash basic now to find your perfect fitting bra and get fifteen percent off your first purchase. That's third. Love dot com slash basic for fifteen percent off today. Okay. I know you're just that a story. But in the last episode, we talked about the googling thing. And I know my need. I wanna make sure we talk about that before we time. Okay. So little backs. Right. We mentioned this last week's episode. And we were gonna talk about it. I could title this. My worst break-up story if we'd go this is I con IQ. And she tweeted out what this story, and I was like, I literally should've text you. 'cause I was so mad. I was like rim. Why why why why did we don't talk about this on the podcast? God. I don't know. It's so funny funny. It's sad. But it's so funny. It also is like it makes sense. Like in the best way possible. There's a whole story line that goes with this, basically, basically, I'm in seventh grade, I'm on my sprint because my parents have sprit services, and I was on my LG rumor phone thinking about and I was like texting this Cubo, and my seventh grade English class his name. Oh, I want to give them a different name, which we call them. Derek? We're going to say Derek shut up. No, you weren't. It was either the millisecond before or the second you said like D, And then Derek was the first thing popped my head before finished about the live in Levick dairy. Do you? I did not think about show. So Derek's texting me, which is so funny because I tweeted this out, and everyone was like thought you never had a boyfriend, and you're lying us, blah, blah, blah. I was like well this trust me, this is not count as a boyfriend was my seventh grade. So he's texting me granted, we never even talked at school either that that seventh grade. That's why you don't count it as an actual relationship. He was so cute. He was like the cute boy in school. He was like the class clown guy in middle school. I was like he's texting. And so he was like, hey, I just wanted to. I don't remember everything. But I can imagine something like, oh, I think someone's cute in class always at this skeleton. No. Yeah. And then he was like will you be my girlfriend, texting I hope to go to Sears and ask boyfriend. We'll talk to your dad when he gets home. Yup. So he was my boyfriend we're together for three days until my first boyfriend was a week seventies. Exactly. W laptop lapped me a third. So I was yeah. We I think that we were together for three days. I think two days it was honeymoon phase Pierotti. Coasting in Hawaii. And then last day he stopped talking to me, he wouldn't reply to my text messages. So I was just like confused didn't know why. So I find him in the quad area middle school gov at nutrition snacktime, whatever they call them recess and so everyone's outside obviously in this big quad area. And I go up to him. I'm like Derek you have a talk to me run at three one. He was like, I mean, I just me like, you're really nice. And I really like you. I just think you're too high maintenance for me, and I remember be like it's fine by and I walked away, and then I had to go home and cool I made because. Minutes. But what happened? Came up with like, I think I don't think it was spoiled. But you know, I'll be honest. I'm high maintenance, we all know now, we know. The reason why this was that happened means great. I didn't think much of it. I thought it was like whatever the reason why it was brought to my attention. Again, recently is widely thought to tweet about it was ally went to a party back in our hometown recently either. No, it's so good. I hope he's not listening to this. Because if you are Derek I'm not making fun of you at all. I think you're a really great guy. A hope that life is treating you. Well, how basically I know he lie was like he went to a party at our hometown. Oh, my God side note, the guy that had the biggest crush on and high school, not the one you love that one. I loved onto a different one who I really liked. I'll tell you later anyways. So. I went to this party with one of my high school friends through it. And you lied just like win like hung out with people, whatever. And so then I you lied to work the next day, and he's like ram all my God. It's so crazy. I went to this party back home. And I met a bunch of people from like because you're younger than you lie. So he was like I met people bunch people in your grade. And I met my biggest fan, and I was like, oh, that's so cool. He's a guy like you told me like he watches all the logs. He like, he watches all my content. You like falls men Instagram? You like you like he's talked about you a little bit. We'll bought and I was gonna way what's his name. And he goes. Derek? And I went wait. Derek all of all the motions. Suddenly, I'm flooded. Google through. And I was like wait Comdex Derrick Smith is like, oh, wait, I think so. Yeah. And he like looks on Instagram and he looked shows for a while. And it is my seventh grade exploit friend who follows me on Instagram to this day. I had no idea. Oh my God. I'm not too high maintenance to follow me on Instagram now. So then I was telling you I was like oh my God. I told him the store and he's like, that's so funny. And then I also told are you? The the actual definition of high mood. I come home from my long day at middle school. Seventh grade wearing my oriential charter school green polo with into my Dicky's navy blue shorts with my belt and my DC tennis shoes. I sit myself down in my parents office on their big PC type in high maintenance into Google. And what does it read it reads of a person or relationship demanding a lot of attention? I understand to Derrick. I get it. The following me. Now, I don't get because I have become only more high maintenance as time has gone on on St. I in full transparency, we all know that. But yeah. And then he actually works at a local fast food joint by my parents house. So they stopped by recently, and he was working in the drive thru thingy. And he was like screaming at me about how like in a nice way. It's just like oh my God. I can't believe like what you're doing and blow blouse like high maintenance, am, I not even kidding? Every time. Hi, hi. You know, what kudos to Derrick knowing high maintenance, seventh grow honestly, Derek for standing up for himself. You know, like back in the day like in seventh grade being able to be like, no, I don't want. Too much too much that I can't give to you. But that's the whole reason why tweeted about I've never talked to you about it. Because I didn't think it was that funny. And when I brought it up, then I was like weight, my heart, and he bring your like what happened after you. Understood actual definition. I was like genuinely like, yeah. I get it, man. I'm not kidding, okay? Yeah. That's me. I just I don't see the problem. But okay. I don't get why you can't still talk to me. You can't actually impact it. He was a fencer, whatever, remember, all whatever. Shook into the core. Just don't get what relationships are like middle school back. Then I remember being like, oh my God. We're in seventh grade like we're in middle school. Like, why does your mom day till you're sixteen. That's so lame. You know what I mean? And I'm like, oh my God. Like, even I had a boyfriend when I was eighteen and I don't count it because it like does not count. I don't want to go. Oh my God. I don't doesn't start till you're like what notes different for everyone. You know? What what is cute though? Like, I've seen some couples who have been like they dated quote in like elementary school in the actually got married, and it's like so cute when that happens, it's so rare. But that's like so cute. Like, do they break up the in? I'm sure they broke up a few times in the middle or like, but they were for instance, the one couple I'm thinking of they he proposed to her at their elementary school playground. Is that not so cute? Like that is so cute. I'm not much of a hopeless romantic. That's so cute. I mean, it's key. I it'd be different. If we if we had a relationship like that. I see I think it's cute. I just I feel like I'm being a little pessimistic. But I do hope that at some point in that relationship. They broke up to like actually do their own. I'm sure. And that's a doorbell love that. I feel like every couple knock. I think we all everything that I think everyone I tell people what the references for people who don't know every single time. We everyone knows everyone does to basically if you didn't know it was back when victorious was the thing and the interviewer like ask the cast victorious, which if you didn't know Nickelodeon show with Victoria Justice, Arianna grounded got her start on they're not her star. But she got big from that, Liz Gillies all these people and the interview, and it was a well-known feud between Arianna, and Victoria and interviews like who seems the most onset and every person was like oh, Arianna Arianna, Arianna. Victoria justice. Goes I think we all sing along. I think we all like to sing. Good. It's so funny because there's been so many times in with YouTube and stuff we do random interviews. You know that you never see the light of day. Like, you're like, I will never see that in my life. I guarantee this was one of those interviews that they never expected to see. And then it just resurfaced probably haunt her lover. But the best part is I bet it came out and for a few years. It was just a normal interviewing someone founded full me out of it. And it is all especially just because like knowing love it. We'll on that. No. I think we're already to finish. Oh my God. Dating. This isn't a more. Anyway, traumatizing episode when I go, home and cry. You're gonna cry a high maintenance box of tissue. I was about to say, you're not high maintenance, and I physically had to stop myself at that. You're. Do I require a lot of attention? Here's the thing. It's not a bad thing. You know? So it makes you you. I think some of us are like succulents, and they only need to be watered with the spray bottle once every few few weeks. Some of us are like daisies, Anita sit in the window sill and be watered and fed and loved and I'm just today's. And you just got to figure out what you are and own it. I really need attention. No. It's just like the whole time. You're saying all this story. I'm like your closet, your pink, bejeweled license plate border, Kate. You know, cute. I guess who did it themselves. Meet who needs a man, not you. I think we all need. Ready? N me anyways. Thank you so much really sing buy tickets to our live shows, pretty basic live dot com. Follow pretty basic podcast on Instagram. I just had an idea we should bring on stage. It's pretty basic live LA. Oh my God. Come out his own podcast got shut up. He can open for us.

(Adele's Ex) Simon Konecki & (Michelle's Ex) Phil Everum?

"Welcome to the weekly the podcast Wheeler and everything you need to know about the celebrities. You don't I'm Bobby finger. I'm Lindy Weber and Jennifer shaker is expecting her third child with husband Henry Hager. What? Bush Hager is expecting her third child with husband Henry Hager. I don't care I'm pregnant the journalists. Thirty seven told her today show co anchors on Monday. She just gonna job I've only telling because meal and poppy found out yesterday and their Easter baskets. I don't like how people talk about their family as if we know who they are. It's like when people refer to their it's like people that refer to their significant other by their first name. It's like, oh, well, you know, I was with John over the weekend. And it's like, I don't know your life. And I don't know John as well. It's funny because it took us forty years to learn about Cody. So like, I feel like like now, I know so much about Cody, which is Kathy Lee's, son. So like me to give me at least forty five years to learn about like, whoever your kids are slash. I definitely don't watch it anymore with her Mula. No, no, she's she's awful because I still love Hoda where she saw Hoda was adopting another kid, and she was like, no, I need to do it. It's just peer pressure. So the thing about Jennifer shaker being pregnant is that there's something else to say about it. Okay. Cool. I just wanted to start with all news a little news item. That was wonderful took me by surprise. I wasn't expecting it. And I didn't care. Yeah. I thought maybe you would care a little bit. But you didn't care at all. But like do I normally care about Jenna Bush Hager? No, no one does. So right there. Yeah. And the people who do care like quickly dwindling. So let's talk a thrones. Now, what did you think when you watched it? Of course, I did. I just feel like it's crazy to me. It's just like appointment TV for everyone will for four weeks. And then it's done to talk to you put water like this is our water cooler like this office. There's something else. And I don't watch it. So I don't know. I I worked in office. I would totally pretend to watch it. I'd be like, yeah. I'd read one recap. And I'd be like Santa. Yeah. Sounds like fun. So yeah. Love her love her. What happened to sounds? But I literally can't even think of another care dragons, Honey, Melissa Andhra is that person really Sentra. I think she has not even fucking know who she is. But she hasn't been around all season. See that's why they show people so many people who were literally the stars of the show. I don't know if she's around sorry with that happen on friends. No, no. I I. I don't know if she's around is alive. I don't know if he's around. She's brown. She's a friend edit up. She's around Phoebe they killed her off BBC. She died in two or you kidding. I'm like, oh, where's Chandler? Oh. I don't know if he's around. There's only so many characters we'll think about this these everyone's around now everyone's coming together because it's a failure. We've got to bring family back together. Like, the gang's all here gang all Heerlen honor of Easter. I guess game. With runs wanted the storyline to have a little Easter bunny. Hop hop hop in into that say a month, the take we will let's start with our first story of the day. Birthday gift. I gave you my God. So today's my birthday twins yesterday is my birthday. Oh god. For my birthday Lindsey got me a cameo and the cameo which you can play part of here is a little a little person, we know as life with MAC, wishing me a happy birthday. But while because these deranged while reenacting the ship sinking scene of Titanic. I really wanted to you. Third birthday. With. Whispering in her and her full SM, our voice, reenacting Titanic like with pieces of paper, and then like in front of a green screen and sort of leaning over and falling over. We just sat you what I sent life is MAC, so Lizzie rotations, high Mak, hijack can you do a s Amar and pretend that it's the Titanic the movie and before the ship, sinks, you must wish. Bobby happy. Thirty third birthday. Also, tell him that me Lindsey appreciates him for always being a good business partner and pal eco Exo. And that's exactly what life with MAC dip. She is the best cameo maker. There is no one better. I literally cannot believe what I got what I wasn't expecting. So she gave me the thing. And I realized it was it was a cameo from live with MAC, I'm an idiot. I didn't really have course. It'd be whispering the entire thing. And she was the tacit in Esmar, duh. She really is a genius. And had she had you given me this before December thirty first she would have beat Olympia Coleman angling close for best actress. Absolutely. I mean when she taps her long fingernails against literally anything, I just I fully chills, and I don't even have s Amar don't add it, and she gives me chills with her work. She is also a support. Sort of gay rights. So I appreciate damn I should say like everyone is as big of an ally as MAC, I mean to reenact Titanic, even though she'd only Senate wants many years ago and literally old so I don't know how that works. But. But I haven't seen it in many years. You're only many years old. But that's fine. Unless you saw it. Anyway, we're all utero for the first time. I thank you so much for that Kip Lindsey, you made me thank you in front of all of our listeners, while really nice for you, really nice for you. It was great gap. Sorry. Thirty per day. Bye. They wanted. To fame. Now. I went to start the show by talking about Brealey boring stuff, which is that the National Enquirer, according the mesh. Poster. The national choir is being sold for one hundred million dollars to James Cohen, the CEO a news sort of like the who we are counterpart to David Packers them that them us. Well, we all the other New York, you know, Hudson news because there are little Hudson newsstands. But I think he owns many other things that you would also be familiar with that I can't name, but Hudson news as a brand is the name of like, the overall company that does distribution of magazines and periodicals and newspapers whatever up and down the eastern seaboard. I believe yes. And they are the world's largest operator of airport. Newsstands. Sometimes they're just called Wrightson. Right. You know, sometimes people don't know just like news sometimes there. It's funny. How I think that they also own all of those stores that have the other names. License when you go into when you go into a store, and it's like, yeah. So they they like yet a licensed. So it's like you go into a store, and it's like the CNN's rolling store the wall the Wall Street Journal store, but it's just a Hudson news. It's a Hudson news with in-drug. It's a Hudson news immediate rag. But that's not what we're talking about here. So I think National Enquirer AM, I he hadn't, you know. We were talking about them because they own now us weekly they own basically, every tabloid except for people they own right? And it's run by this guy. David David pepper trends of Donald Trump. And then a lot of this stuff came into the fact that national choir was doing a lot of catch catching Kerry carrying carrying. What's it called? Catch. A no kill where they were buying your about to call it. Is that where they were buying new stories like in like four other people essentially in the know running them killing them, and this just got sold. But what kind of everyone's kind of insinuating? Oh, like now that you know, they AM I Packer whoever didn't wanna pay because they kept getting sued for all these different things like national choir has actually broken a lot of news recently. They broke the text messages, the Amazon thing they broke that they broke. What was before? At the big thing. They broke before that o obviously the Trump stormy Trump thing the biggest thing that broken since Trump is the as the Jeff bass things happening, and they're claiming that they didn't want to like legally be responsible for that. So they sued they sold, but they sold for hundred million which is actually crazy because that is so much more money than I expected them to be worth. Because it's like who's buying the National Enquirer like there. Buying it. That's what I that's what I wanna know. I mean, it must. I mean, we asked these questions are knowing is obviously people are just I never see it. So who were I mean, I guess it's people it's people who watch Fox News. I guess it's that that's grand without wilder. Fox News that really read the internet. I know. But without that, like, maybe they're not gonna be that way any more. I mean, it's so strange, and they saw it says the papers Holden average of five hundred sixteen copies per issue is released dozen fourteen but that number has feld to two two hundred eighteen thousand in December according to data, so it's like five hundred sixteen thousand now it's two hundred eighteen thousand copies per year per per issue. Terrible weird because so they're saying it's very high because the Boston Globe sold for seventy. Also, he's paid two hundred fifty million for the post that same year. I think what they claim which is interesting is that this guy Coen? He wants to use the archive for documentaries in podcast. So he's looking at number. How did that big documentary slash podcast about Natalie wood? I think they're day saying this that he wants us. He wants to take the national choir brand and use it versus literally selling. So he's basically he's in it for the catalogue alley. So like, even at the even the national Twitter Enquirer quits publishing entirely he still has access to like a treasure trove drill Dhabi. But basically, even the AM I in Hudson media are still in collaboration because basically they bought the tabloid, but it still staffed by AM I people like they're just keeping at the same office. It's got the same editors and New York Post wrote a whole post about whether the guy who runs the inquirer will. You need to run the inquire that's unclear but they seem chummy if not if not actual friends, they seem chumming the point where it's like this this Hudson news guy doesn't wanna wreck David peppers life. You know, they seem friends you suggested. I mean, we have no fucking idea. But they could be friends who are going into kind of like financial can you by the national choir from me, and then like a hope you deal with it. Will you help me out? And it's sorta seems like what's happening. But what do I know about business? I know what am I test McGill? I know nothing I don't know either. But that is not a bad guess because that's seems likely but Lindsay found the truly important part of the story, which is the owner of the Hudson group James Cohen has a daughter and the daughter recently had bought mitzvah, and it cost over one million dollars, and they paid Nick Jonas to perform six how much they pay him three hundred thousand dollars and they brought her out in about mitzvah in a giant clam. Shell was that what it was shouldn't tell I saw it on Instagram. I couldn't tell this bought mitzvah was in. Credible. It was in two thousand fifteen her name is Jacqueline with a Y and was in a tense in their home in New Jersey with Nick Jonas performing, and let me tell you. It was themed lowly poets are two thousand sixteen. Lilly Pulitzer the party had showgirl dressed dancers butlers. Robots and segues all the things that you loved into the Bing flamingos have re out every loophole Pulitzer themed about mitzvah. I mean, I'm not want to talk by the Mets did not have a theme. So like, I wasn't even cool, but Lilly Pulitzer themed, but. I always think of the the promos for my super Sweet Sixteen because they always played the the promo Roy's same play the same clips on all them at least for one or two seasons, and the clip they would use over and over again was this woman or this girl like fifteen six year old girl looking at the camera and doing like rock hands and going this is the sickest party I've ever been to. And it was like your fifteen. I love those ads even as a teen myself. I was like this is ridiculous. I mean, this is the sickest party I've ever been to. And it's like someone's super speed succeed, New Jersey. You know what? Now that I think about it. Do you know what a really fun the would be for bar mitzvah, if I had one right now what ever lane if you're asking me if that you're saying, Bobby, that's not a theme. I say it is at the I show up wearing ever lane. And I asked everyone to give me ever lane for my bar mitzvah, just everyone else. Also wear their favorite ever come up in their favorite ever lane there, so many, and they have you ever. Elaine. Yeah. So it's it's the ever lane bought mitzvah bar mitzvah, bar mitzvah, the ever lane barmitzvah. Yeah. No. I just wanna spun bar mitzvahs. What I wanna do these ever lane? Barmitzvah hashtag add. Yes. Hashtag spot. It'd be really good. And you know, why because ever lane makes premium essentials using the finest materials without traditional markups. This would be your have to ever lane overlain only makes premium essentials using the finest materials without traditional markups. They want you to know what you're paying for and wise. So they tell you their real costs and radically transparent about every step and up as from the materials, they use to the factories. They work with their clothes.

There've been a lot of breakup this week break-up rebid sat breakup happening it's summer that people have they've cupping season is over they've had enough of their of their bows. They're done with these were three I will say very surprising ones to look it wasn't usually sometimes people break up, Bella Maude, son Sonics. I was I was surprised that like usually. I'm just kind of like, oh like this this love island Chapin this like whoever person like big deal their time. Their time has run its course. But these were three big breakup, they were very high profile very A-List e they were breakup that they were breakup relationships whose foundations were incredibly well covered. And like sweet where it was like all these women like all they finally found the one of God for them. He met in like a sweet way or like super like reclusive in a sweet way. Anyways. The first one was the reclusive one which was Adel and her husband whose name is Simon Kentucky who you like never heard about. Like, Adele is like a single name only. And yet her husband could not have named you him. Unless you like reminded me what it was. They broke up and literally just like announced it just announced L, no comment, but there's no comment or anything. So it's over on. I had forgotten. I was looking up. I was trying to remember when they met. And there was something. I don't even I don't think that I remember this happening. So this wasn't even something that I remembered, but when they started dating in twenty eleven the first photos of them were in early twenty twelve and she blog about it. And her first blog posts about it was on January seventeen twenty twelve you can find it in the way back machine, she deleted it sense. But it says on her blown when she logged. No, this is the first last time I will comment on the details of my relationship with Simon contrary to reports and headlines in the press today Simon is divorced at has been for four years everyone on our lives separately, everyone. Separately and together wish us nothing but the best and vice versa. These are the facts take care and see you all in February ex- ex-. So this was based on a series of rumors and gossip news coming around that time in which people were saying that Adele was dating a guy who was still married. Adele was dating father who was still married. And then it turns out she was like, no, no he divorced for years ago. But then all these reports the actually didn't get the worst until twenty eleven. So it's like who knows what to believe. But isn't this like eating legally documented somewhere that you could find out? I don't know if you can do that in the I think here, you can I don't know if it's eas- easy to get the UK. But I could also be pulling that on my ask the point is we got over that hump really quickly because we were like, oh my God. Dell so happy thank God. I didn't remember any this in two thousand. He they respond together in Florida where his relatives live, but he's British. And he went to he's a charity. Entrepreneur new. I don't know if that is a thing he he went to start a school. You went to eat. He's very he's from upper-crust British people. He went to Eton Hewitt till like we're principally of went. He went to where Bennett cover also used to work at Lehman Brothers. And then he quit and started a charity. So when he started when he started this charity that was one of the first signs they were together. A Dell was promoting the charity on her socials donate to this charity. And then they were like, oh, it's Simon's charity. But she was horns. Oh, so horny for the sky and got married. Well, then they had a fairly then they got he's he's older than she is whatever she was happy. She releases an album, that's finally happy. And it's like, oh 'cause she's happy. Now, the broken up another enough now going to Gabe R's, Jennifer Lawrence. Honestly, Adele date women. Stop adult day women. Stop it. It's crazy. You know? What's actually, so crazy to even think about this j law just got engaged in Adel? Got divorced. Do you think that Jay laws like what the fuck bed? I was like fingle for years, and like like, and you were married now you're fucking single driving James to an it'll be frowning. I don't think they're going to be in love is what I mean. I mean, they like they should hang out serial gals on the town is what I'm saying. So that's Michelle Williams, white Michelle Williams, this is Charlotte. So rollout of was hilarious. So fucking elaborate that they broke up less than a year later is random roll out because it was like oh Machel's on the cover of Vanity Fair for some reason. Promoting literally nothing and then. Promoting her marriage inside the story. It's like oh. And also, she's married to this guy whose name is Phil LV room. Who is this guy? He's like vaguely music. He's a Newsweek, and they both had like sad personal histories is hers is obviously depressing, and we all know it his was like so depressing. We didn't know it. And then if you read up on it, you'd be like, oh, it's sorta south side. So his we talked about this. We don't have to go in back into again. But they both the the narrative around it was it was like these two people in mourning these like two pretty people there. So. There are morning on they fall in love over so happy for her. It's been so long Honey liquor so happy from shell. And suddenly the broken up unceremoniously just like they're broken up. It's done. Said that's just so expensive. Maybe adele's. I could see coming maybe because we hadn't seen him in own she's sheets in all around with Laura with Jay law. Yeah. Yeah. So then I would argue the most surprising. No is the Anna camp and Schuyler Asan of pitch. Perfect. Two stars pitch. Perfect are breaking up after two years of marriage. They had the idea that you could say the most pitch perfect marriage thought this perfect couple, you know, not Brittany snow and straight Ben Platt. They thought they had it all way. I'm sorry. Do you? Call her not Brittany, snow and him straight. Ben yet. Incredible not Britney. So straight Bentiu lead of this page. Six just says ach. And a cabin Schuyler Aston split two years after marriage Auchan. No aga. No, we can confirm that we have decided to separate and this decision was mutually made. Most got and this decision was made mutually and amicably we kindly asks for privacy, as we navigate this transition to many adverbs too many adverts send them season two sets me complaining about this thing. Tony Adams, Anita. It's just funny 'cause I'm like, wow. Like, I could not imagine them breaking up and literally all that. I know that they haven't come that. They were in a movie together. They're perfect there. And you know when. Aachen? Oh is as they say all know, those are the three big breakup of the week, and you believe it. Oh, actually, there was another break up that you didn't that? You didn't mention Lindsey didn't. Did you put these did you put this with the breakup intentionally yet Shay Mitchell her front tooth? Yes. She much like much like you and your tooth shameful. Also is having a front tooth, but she lost hers instead of falling on her face, her whole, bagel. Would she was hitting insane from eating a bagel? What was this big? Whereas from how old was it? Also, like did she have like thin teeth because celebrities caps and veneers and stuff like we're her teeth? We had things because you know, you shave them down. I don't know. But I I mean, literally they'll like out like what's going on to them. They just you know, genetically have bad teeth and the cover story for something more dark. Maybe she fell as well like me. But she's to our free Brittany were like, what was the bagel? What is your tooth? This is honestly, I don't trust any you're saying you don't trust. The Mitchell was eating a bagel when her to fill out that it was something else. Yes. Sort of like the morale Lampert fall, remember them. Randall no Carrie Underwood fall. Maybe like sore on the record. Shame breaking up with their tooth is weird. What does that mean? We don't. I'm just saying she happens when you eat a bagel sandwich. I'm sorry that is slander against bagels that don't bagel sandwich this weekend. And it was amazing, and I have all my teeth. So I don't know what to tell you. Shame mitchell. I'm just saying it's weird. It's weird. You know, what could have caused shame Michels to to fall out what stress. Oh, no, you're right. Maybe maybe her teeth week from stress. I have no doctor. I don't even know if there's a causal relationship here. But I do know one thing stresses a worldwide. Epidemic. People are working longer hours people like shameful. They're inundated, but the constant news cycle people shameful. And they're more connected than ever before as you can tell because Shay Mitchell, Instagram, her two loss stress has a part of light. But it can very easily affect overall wellbeing just asked shame Mitchell.

I put this in here. Did you see that m roberts's trolling all of us by like pretending like, she's engaged care tending to gauge walk. She's walking around with Garrett Hedlund like ring ring finger out showing off her ring the way that she's holding. It is. So it's so funny. She's trolling us. She's a troll. She's funny. She's basically comedian at this point trolling. But this is what I care about. This is the couple year fuck in the whole damn antennae him dole. I and said, I why hate these couple just wanna put it out there. I hate them. I think I hate sports and she does nothing. So I. Every every time their model squad. Yes, she is. She was at Coachella. I wasn't. I mean, a lot of people on it was kind of a weird crowd this year, and she hooked up or hung out with slash her. We heard you hooked up with Zad bobby's favourite, how do you feel about xenophobic Bolivia wants it to be happy? So if he hooked up with Olympic culpa and that made him happy then good for him and good for a couple. Honestly, what happened was Libya COPA supposedly aging or name Olivia, see hopefully, whole Libya suppose about ler Olivia cease of yet basically Libya C supposedly hooked up with said and Danny amendola. The sports player who she broke up with recently or they broke up with each other. He shared a since deleted video. I love when weekly reports on deleted. Instagram's a synced league video on his Instagram on Thursday of himself lying in bed shirtless, watching Pulp Fiction that part Pulp Fiction where it's he says ED's dead said steady babies, those BRUCE'S at. Just him shirtless in bed watching this one clip. And it's like, okay. We know what you're doing that wasn't clear which apparently it wasn't clear enough for him. He then posted another Instagram this guys get get get this guy's password away from him he posts nother Instagram, which he wrote, I mean, I don't wanna read this whole thing. But it's like I believe there should be a boundary between private and social media Livia believes in fishbowl media believes in official lifestyle. This fundamental difference was huge in our relationship. If you're my real friend. You know, I'm private you're posting this on Instagram. My mother brother, fathers, blah are closest to me in the world. And you don't see one photo of them. And that's for their protection. Those who criticize judge I believe in nailing pictures in frames on the inside of my house. Remind those okay, I can't Olivia chooses. This is those shadiest Olivia chooses. It's so funny because Libya COPA is literally everywhere. So I fully by this. Like, she really is this just but also who we all know this. You're not revealing anything surprising about Libya culpa, Olivia culpa. What's tension? Fucking news. She choose in. Wants to be noticed on the internet in Hollywood to make money which was hard for me to understand but quickly had to learn whereas the cost of fame in this world doesn't appeal to me I play ball for one reason. And that's respect. The only reason I'm bringing this post whether I like it or not we lived in the public is some of it was amazing. I've met the nicest. Okay, Olivia baba, whereas it we celebrated as couldn't sex was fucking crazy too. She gets so mad at me for not posting her on social media. And I think this should is sometimes fake and sometimes toxic. But sometimes beautiful, and I we she had enough pictures online anyways. She's like, can you believe they spent their whole relationship. She's like bay post me bay post me, babe. While you post me, bows me. This line truth is I had a whole cell phone of funny, embarrassing sexy picks with love to hate love to have. But this is the part that we got the TMZ push alert about we've been on an offer a long time and not together as of late. Not sure what's in the future. But the only thing I care about us her all caps happiness, and if that's dancing with scrawny little fucked. So be it. He's referencing said there and also spelled scrawny S C R O N Y, which is why I'm so mad at the TMC's TMZ alert that we both got when we were together correcting his spelling them and us weekly all. Scrawny little fuck his he spelt. He did not spell Surani correctly. TMZ do not put a quote, he was only scrawny scrunched little fuck scrawny by beautiful extra GIF providence his finest and baker's bay pancakes. And like, I don't know what happened to him. I mean, he has no brain scrawny. Did they always surprised that fun? We surprised that a football player like someone whose job is to get head injuries like ro a sort of indecipherable Instagram post. I get what he's saying. Although it's very rude to her. And so he deleted that. Because obviously get that outta here. And he posted himself like dancing and wrote now that that's over let's party. But that's not really funny. Also that makes me like Danny amendola. Like, we saw that Instagram you deleted like just because you delete. It doesn't mean it doesn't exist in our memories. And then he had to literally say he do right another Instagram. Meanwhile, now we're up to like four in the whole thing is has got is one post. Instagram's we well. Now, he's posing for. Eighteen Instagram's to get two favorites to Graham of his where he said, it was a photo of him singing with I believe. What's the guy who married re raise all bigger? Kenny Chesney, Kenny Chesney, and then it says people will often remember what you said, they will remember how you made them feel like Danny were all reading about you know, because of what you said, that's the only thing we're talking about right now all of you wanted was opposed of hurt. And instead you've posted forty five times about her. But not while you're together when you could just solve this by posting one photo of her when you were Together's, then he wrote on Instagram, which he also deleted when I meant to say yesterday was that the media and general public have no idea what goes on behind closed doors. I don't participate in fake intangibles that can consume the public. I I'm a private single guy. And it's everyone's happy, I'm happy. And then he didn't then he did another cell. He dropped a selfie that. He also lead in wrote fake people have an image to maintain the real ones. Just don't care, and I think his teammate wrote like delete your Instagram. I think he commented deliverance Graham. Just like people adults people in their thirties. Talking like they're in high school fake people fake people who talked about fake people over the debate team. I normally you're vade be like I can't fake this guy. But a Livia Coble Hobo is so everywhere to me without having done anything that I could even pinpoint that I kind of like see what he's saying about her. Because can you imagine being with that person? Nobody can imagine being with Danny amendola either fair fair. But I can't imagine being said sweeties. Okay. Oh my God. He's like. Like that. That's. Said also now that is a bit. Now, I have to that as my crush. I guess it's candidates ED's can and you have a crush on him. It's cannon God. I don't I don't do. It's cannon. He loves at Europe says was that love him. I never clicked this story of our two new where people in town actually, there are three. Here's the deal. We're welcome to the kind of kick cake. Ben is back on Tyler Blackburn. I don't remember who he is. But he was on pre liars, and he's on Roswell Rosina, Mexico who weekly Spahn, Roswell Tyler Blackburn, he is queer. But the best part is at the same around the same time, which was literally a few days ago raider our line had an exclusive incredible exclusive their headline was sexual confession you and MacGregor's daughters Clara an ester reveal their by sexuality. Yes, daughters daughters. I love this begun. Aren't you mcgregor's daughter still hate you McGregor? Dan. Hate him. Because wasn't he he last year? Face. Elizabeth something something Winstead, twin study, whatever. But they gotta fight with the Coachella founder who is who would terrible. He's homophobic. He supports homophobic, like causes pro gun views. He's terrible. So they wrote Esther McGregor road via Instagram. Not okay cello. That was a hashtag all the time. And this is the best all take the time now to say sexual and that that wasn't good enough. The sister clear blogger replied and said, I'm bisexual to carry on what? Wild. To McGregor bisexuals iconic. But what you need. What you need. A headline. That's like a Daily Mail headline. That's like you and MacGregor's daughters reveal bisexuality amid Coachella boycott or something like that. Knows has to be a mid Coachella Coachella boy on you, don't like sexual confession. Actual. Or or no, you know, what the Daily Mail does. The the thing that things are happening amid is usually the more controversial thing. So it would have to be you and MacGregor's daughter McGregor daughters Clara an ester boycott Coachella amid by sexuality reveal. No, it would be that. But then it would be amid like Notre Notre Dame fire you'd have even have to be something. So completely unrelated. And it's not even near what what's going on with them. You know, McGregor daughters Clara, an Esther announced bisexuality, and boy and boycott of Coachella music festival amid Notre Tom fundraising goal or exotic or something like that. That's imply they were related, but in fact, these girls said nothing about Notre Dom just about their own bisexuality, which I love which I do love we can move on. I just saw thereby sexual. Schuyler Clara and the other one bisexual already forgotten name. What is her name was Noah stared at? S or S her Michelle branch and Patrick Carney welcomed their first child together per the screen you put in. Okay. No. You miss the full news. That's an old screen shot. The idea was they got married. So they got married married. And why I thought this was really funny was because literally every single time they talk about this couple because everyone's like Michelle branches dating the guy for the block east question, Mark. They have been for two years. They use one photo. They've only had one photo to use photo. It's just that a now we have two photos, isn't that? Incredible. That's good to phone os. It'll be easier for them to be everywhere to us with those photos. You gotta you got it. I got it. Does your everywhere to us. Yeah. Some that. I should have some added Kariuki that would have been good. There's plenty of time. This is my favorite one Patrick sore sticker revealing that he's sober from wheat as if I didn't think that Patrick's mortgage worsen Egger was the lamest personal live like I ready thought this. So this just confirms my mind, I'm looking it's four twenty legalize it. I'm looking through my feed looking for some people celebrating four twenty like me, especially celebs like I want some slips to be like happy for twenty blaze. It, you know. This post. It's a pitcher of none other than cool guy Patrick's words in Edgar and he's a picture of him. And he's got he's got he's holding a peace sign, and I'm like, oh, this is going to be good. He's probably like four twenty legalize it, you know, which is which I respect. And so I read the caption and eat throws me for such a loop that I my entire high is just ruined by it. He ruined. My hind misses the darkest story. Really funny. It's really funny 'cause like honestly darker than what's darkest. Are you've ever heard this darkest Sewri dark is one of them. The twist employed here only God, okay, fun story. Also starting with fun story. If you years ago for exactly showed up a little Easter brunch. Plastic right now. I'm like Yemen. My old man that would be our Nolde asked. Why I said, I don't know makes things more fun. Sorry. It says I don't know makes thing more fun true. One thing. It's just Easter. He replied how much more fun. Do you need to have life is so good? I'm high on life. I never want anything that would take me out of my current life being high on life is better than anything else. Forgot in quote being high on life is better than anything else on. That's what Arnold long story short. Actually. This was a short story haven't smoked since. Then just high on life now. Happy and healthy. And can't thank God enough to see another day. Happy for twenty sorry. That was a buzzkill. Lol literally the biggest buzz co of my life cares. Patrick schwarzenegger. Are you at the photo was him doing a selfie with the peace side? I don't like that. We're giving Patrick sports nigger attention. I know I honestly agree and don't like him. But he is providing some hilarious things like posting this on Ford. Life is good. I'm high on life life life is better than anything else. I don't think. So it was better. The Gloria bell Patrick's worsening. No is it better than Gloria bell Patrick's worship. Also, I can be high on life and stone. So like get out of business or the Easter mention reminds me of last night when we were at dinner and two of our friends were there, and one of them was our friend LaLa. The other one was friends Spencer. They were just coincidentally wearing extremely complementary outfits like they looked like they had planned their outfits to match, and we'll point they were like nuzzling against each other. And I was like, oh, look, it's it's mom and dad wearing their Easter bests or something and Lindsey was like, are you kidding? Like, they're not celebrating Easter number one Spencer's Jewish and LA LA literally said before coming here. I didn't realize Easter was that big of a deal. I didn't realize Easter was this big of a deal is hilarious. She it was more like this. He turned to me. And she was like, I just like didn't realize Easter was such a thing. And I and I think what she meant was like people on Instagram like performing I I mean over the years. Yeah. I think that's that's true. Because over the years performance, give celebrations have become more and more prevalent Instagram where it's like we look for any excuse to celebrate a day like national siblings day. No, one knew what the. Fuck nets until did you, sir. He zone. Many. There are so many holidays that did not exist before Instagram or did not exist in the mainstream you and now we're like, oh, yeah. Because Easter lets you post like throwbacks with your family and the Easter bunny and throwbacks with your parents at Easter table and eating candy. It's just like we will celebrate holidays more now. So that we can figure the more social media, the more something becomes a thing. So like, yeah. That was actually really it's like, basically what's happening is that Easter has always been an important thing. It's like one of the more important Christian holidays on my right Catholic. I mean, whenever at least growing up it was like, look you. They would always say at at mass. They'd be like Christmas gets all the attention, but Easters the bigger miracle, but true miracle -actly Lexi, they say that about Passover to cause the Hanukkah gets a lot of attention because it's Christmas. But it's actually like rush on people. Also, celebrate Passover. But then the moment they transitioned to Easter the Jewish religion don't pay attention to that. We're not paying attention to that. You know, it's it's it's one long book. But we don't read the second book screaming like Harry Potter. We don't recognize the later books as you listened we celebrated Passover the the questions are going to do something crazy on Sunday, just like close Instagram. We're not gonna pay attention to that. I mean being Jewish is truly just being like, I don't wanna read the books like I'm not reading I'm now really shades of gray like two or three Jewish watching only the first four seasons of game of thrones. Yes. One hundred percent being Jews reading the first Lord of the rings and never returning. I mean, whatever like why read on Jewish Jewish is the first tape of Titanic on just truly it's the I like, it didn't think it did not think Lindsay. It does think honestly when I was younger. I used to watch the first tape of sound of music. I think I've talked about that. Because the second tape was like. I'd be like, no. Nope. Nope. Nope. I don't recognize the second tape of sound of music. I recognize that they're happy and singing. I mean, then we get stark fast, so fun. That's more fun. Yeah. But like they fuck at the end of tape one. And then you're like, oh, great. They're going to be to go during the love. It goodbye. Yeah. Yeah. What else is happening? O'neil sokha. Naomi? Osaka has boy. And now that Naomi saw like the most famous tennis player in the world. She's getting the press coverage that beim people often receive which is that oh, she's dating someone. We never heard of soliciting. And I be controversial say she's not the most famous tennis player in the she's not the most she's currently the hottest tennis player in the world. Not the most like she's number one ranked tennis player in the world issue the most famous. No, obviously, he's the hot in terms of like like trending. She's the most trending tennis number-one. She's literally the number one ranked tenth tennis player, but she is not as popular, AVI. Serena and Venus Serena waves. Yeah. She's dating rapper name Y. N B coordinating Corday, the boss's boss lead is hilarious because it's like same. It's love love it appears that number one tennis player in the world name Sokha's dating rubber Wyant core day. And then the lead us. Well, we certainly didn't see this coming. It's like same who is this person. I mean, I didn't either because. Awesome. I saw Niamey Asaka. She was getting harassed by Ellen on Ellen about like having a crush on Drake. Do you remember this? And then we talked about this maybe talked about this show was like getting bullied by Ellen Drake. Do you like Drake? I think you like Drake. You like Drake. Your check Drake pedal. Rodeo we posted a photo this guy a video on her Instagram and said can't take this guy anywhere, but like hearts, but then as bossa points out that was a no there was no reciprocal claiming. I posts. Any and then Dollah over there at my right? Pulling Danny Bill he doesn't want to. He doesn't want to live a public life. Good for them. Do we know anything else about the sky you have some research here? He's part of the y bien N group of the only one you may have heard of was Wyan bien y bien almighty, Jay. But also, I feel like I can't even like name a song by these guys. That's more. My problem has. Say. Bag hit. Flip. It betcha. Dell number. I don't care what Joe. Spoiled LA about stuffy Pratt because I think you're right here, which is that I'm starting this drama now. So that we can put it in the show. Right. So so, okay. I don't have a ton of insider knowledge about this. Even though I wrote this hills cover for Cozma. But basically what happened was which I find. So so so funny is that you know, the show was supposed to come out in April. That was the date. They gave us actually when I did it in like January. They're like, oh, it'll come out like March, April, we're not sure of the date yet. But by the time, you're thing goes up. We'll have the date. And I was like, we'll can I see episodes Seaney cots. No, no. We don't have. There's nothing ready. I'll trial try nothing nothing. So I get nothing. I see nothing. I write this based off nothing. And then they put the date. They released the date which is April and they put gate in the piece in the print. And then by the time, he online when comes out the date has been pushed back, and so it's like, it's it's funny 'cause the print has the wrong date. And so they're like, oh, sorry, blah, blah, blah. And we weren't the Cozma wasn't the only one to do at vogue also gave them a huge story with a with a huge photo shoot. And everything like they made the rounds in terms of press. And so literally it comes out that not only is there, no date. It's going to be summer because there are reshoot because there's not enough drama, which is actually something that I asked him about because I felt like, oh, you know, you're adults like how are you going to create the same drama? You did when you were teenagers. And they kind of all were like, oh, there's plenty of drama because there's there's we all like, oh, they're going to write something for us like. Well, it was just like we all have old drama took that comes back when we ever we hang out, whatever. And and they made it also seem like Spencer's always got something up sleeve because really this is his ship to cedar. 'cause they made it seem like or they kind told the story Spencer went to MTV Spencer. When did this Spencer, really advocated for the hills in like to get it back on TV, basically, which is makes this even more convincing. So now it's reveal that the show is doing re-shoots to to up the drama and eat is not coming out until the summer. But I think they did give it a date. It was like July or something. Is there an is there an actual date June twenty-fourth, it says this was as of April second? But this was so TVD. Okay. So now comes out that. No, no comes out. Stephanie Pratt and Spencer Pratt seventy is on the hills reboot. Now, it says that Stephanie Spence are a huge fight. And that she's been disowned apparently from her family because she's in fighting with Spencer, and she apparently doesn't like Heidi. She calls, Heidi the devil. That's what she says. And she has her own jazz our own podcast. He has a podcast, and she has a podcast, obviously, his make Spidey grade again hers is called Pratt past because as you know, she's famous in England because she was on Maidan Chelsea call her the in Chelsea star which cracks me up, and she says that her parents care about him more, and they're you know, whatever and she put on Instagram will you living with evil around you, quote, unquote. Well, you are married to the devil. Meaning that Heidi is the Heidi as the devil and mild thing with this is that could they be in a fight. Sure. But like is it more likely that they're in? A fight to drum up more private for the Hazel day. Just got extended and we need to keep the excitement around the show. You already firsthand, you know, that they're they're having some I'm not even for unconvincingly literally relying on in every single publication. The only reason you would need reshoot says because like something is not shot. We don't we are missing storyline. We don't have enough to do this. But it's interesting because this drama is just Pratt's. Like, I wonder if like Spencer was like we'll anyone else like helped me draw up some like press for this. And everyone's like, we did our job we shot this show we have kids to worry about. So he was like Stephanie. You know, the process are kind of like known for this both of them. And I don't think that they give a shit that this fight or whatever is maybe Vic, you know. It's fascinating. You know? I'm just really looking forward to watching the show because I have no idea what to expect which is kind of. I mean. I'm definitely gonna watch it. I just I feel like it could immediately be so boring. And it wouldn't surprise me. Just because it feels very if feels like it's if it's if it was so boring. They had to literally do re-shoots like think about how boring shows are in don't have to reshoot sometime. Also, they also talked about this last week. But it's like they fucked up the city you calendar so badly that it's like they're going to have to find another way to increase momentum. Now that we're going to stop talking about it pretty soon. Great story, but really set the exact wrong time. No, that's where it's like having to talk about a show that they can't even predict at this point, the most toxic people I've ever met. Stephanie Pratt is not holding back. I'm gonna expose them for. They are this show may be called the hills new beginning. But it sounds like the Stephanie versus Spidey drama is deep rooted in here to stay. I'm not gonna pretend got Spencer and Heidi are good people. We are not on guitar. We are not on speaking terms. I do not consider them my family. Was she wary. Where was she seen? She posted. Why on Graham, she's a who clean ten? Onto. What's Rita ORA up to who is this woman? So what is she up to so much? She's doing some spun literally so much Rita ORA partners with Conaco brands for Prospero. Tequila Rita is getting her own kilo brand. And I'm going to drink it read or tequila, I cannot wait. She is going to be the chief creative partner, which means literally nothing they ask for a million times, which he's going to do. And it's unclear I think she's going to take Instagram photos where she hosted holds the tequila near face, which she goes, she this this answer, that's cheap creative partner. I along with ROY oversee the marketing creative and the concept produce around Prospero. This gives me the amazing opportunity hands on and really put my creative stamp on. It has a nine. I don't want to give too much away. But my main objective in this year's to produce a brand that I'm excited about into make it accessible to consumers across the country. I'm obsessed. Hartman job high. I oversee marketing creative and content produced around the tequila brand Prospero. Non American singer slash creative partner for Prospero tequila brand, Rita ORA. I love that. We don't or wants to cause play having a real job. You know that we talk about this all the time. It's like the REO winter, quote where she like thinks it's fun a dream. She works at an office. I wanna work in an office that read is just going to promote this brand. And like, you know, put the creative into her inter music videos. You can put the tequila in the music videos. Do all the thing. I I gotta say I'm thrilled though that it's like a woman doing a liquor brand. And not fucking Ryan Reynolds and George Clooney. Did you read I read the whole thing? And what she really loves about it, which I think is great is the Deke lie maker is a woman as a woman. Yeah. I support this endeavor. I'm glad that she's now businesswoman that she works. Best read or in a cubicle. Imagine that read or I say Reno ores music. I obviously like most of it or like some of it, but reader or as starve detective peak at you and running it to kilo brand, those are my favorite things she's done so far I love to Quila. And I. Love Pika chew you do to Keila. So she released the video for carry on, which I think honestly is a great video. And the reason that video is so good is because it's like a movie Tien. So it had a budget and I'll. Yellow detective coat and it's stunning. And she's walking around the town. What's the town? The city. I don't remember the name of whatever it is walking around looking for pecan. She's got a flashlight. She's like, she's she's being an investigative scroll down just like spread on all this other stuff. They released some photos from the movie and there's one of Rita looking like, Elizabeth homes. She's Elizabeth hall king at looking like looking at a violence Photoshop that pitcher Rita into the Elizabeth homes documentary poster and we've got ourselves that no one cares. The town is called I'm trying to find the peninsula town. Rhyme city. Look at these photos of Rita. She's a scientist. She's using some sort of ipad thing to do something and the other one she's antibiotic she's in Stamford step woman. Instead, she also bra. No, she went bottomless looks her fingers and flaunts insane curves. And skimpy lingerie for sexy. Old fishy posted every year. Every year. She posts I think this is number three it's wild. Because I never forget them because they're so sexy that like I'll never forget them whenever she posts. Like these again Rita. It's her in her underwear and crop top. But also bunny ears eating Ed candy. It's fully the most it would. So funny about it is it's the most Representative of Rita ever, which is like taking a hall like taking a moment, and like making it so sexy that it's like, it's almost uncomfortable. No, I know exactly what you mean. And that's exactly what's happening here. And the other thing was that Rita was involved in the viral little Dicky save the earth music video which I don't know if you watch this. But I didn't it's interesting because it's like silly because he's a silly rapper. But then the song is like save the earth involves Leonardo Di Caprio in like they're going to give all the money like the proceeds to Leonardo DiCaprio earth. So it's good because it's earth awareness or cynical teenagers and stuff like that. Because it's like funny and stupid in earth like save. Earth. We boil the earth. We saw plenty of proof this week that the teens this the teens in this generation are extremely woke and good art. No. They are the create on the creation tick tock of the girl that was talking about how bad billionaires ours. I was like wow teens are good Dickey released his song. It's viral because it has so many people in it Bieber 'Grande halls e or a highly. Or feld Shawn Mendez who've and yes reorient plays a wolf. The best part about this. Is you watch this? But so they all play like different animals, and then some of them just are like the voice of like a country and guess who is India, Meghan Trainor. Why I don't know. But there's really a part where Meghan Trainor goes. Like, we Lobue India. Wait, hold on. Did you hear that? We love you. And you're like what we just literally went from like Ed Sheeran as like a koala to Meghan Trainor. Being like, we love you India. I'm sorry CGI Leonardo DiCaprio is insane. It's him holding the earth is looking to stop climate change are the history books going to say Leonida copy stopshop climate. I don't think anyone's gonna stop climate change. But I think if anyone actually has like the if anyone could the yo because he's so genuinely motivated and not greedy in terms of this specific project like I literally think that he's trying to offset his car his karmic load in that like he is such a fuck boy. I don't have time. I don't have time for a relationship. That's why I have to keep like breaking up these women and finding new women because like I can't devote my life to one woman because I'm focused on the earth. True. But also, literally think he's like, you know, I'm such a fuck boy that liked to make up for that in this life. I'm going to also say safely, I'm sorry. As God going to be like, no. To me after I'm like, literally, save the earth. Like, what are you give a shit that I've talked with votes on? That's true. That's very true. But it's also he's going to save. He's not gonna stop climate change. We're all gonna burn up. It'll be awful. I mean, if something we could do anyone can stop it. It's leo. It's the point of no return. Let's just have fun and enjoy it. Let's just have fun and enjoy Rita indetectable chew. In may. I'm so ready. I'm sodium, sodium serums we've been recording for so long.

9. How the Brothers Behind Super Coffee Put Its Bro Culture on Ice

"Foam for me. It wasn't there wasn't conviction. I i liked the product in it. Worked but i didn't see what jordan saw. Jake did jigsaw when he saw in for me like. I have any super insecure. You know. I was like the first few months super coffee. I was training for the military i was. I was literally there as the big brother to make sure my little brother didn't scroll up. Screw up their lives. And what. I realize like wow. This is difficult and challenging and fun. And we're we're actually having impact on people customers would come to us and say. I'm a type one diabetic. And i've never enjoyed coffee before. Thank you guys so much like. This is something i've always dreamed up and it was that kind of impact as wow this. This is something bigger than just a project in a dorm impact. A lot of people if we grow this scale that's jimmy to seco the co founder and ceo of super coffee. I'm your host. Patrick mcguinness and this is foam sapiens. When the world spinning out of control it can be impossible to know what to do and what to miss out on. That's called fomo short for fear of missing out. How do i know because i coined the term and on the world's first full malla gist and this is the show where i asked. Entrepreneurial thinkers people. I call homo sapiens. How they live and work with conviction no matter what life throws at welcome to fomo sapiens. So glad to have you here on the show this week because today i have guessed who is. I'd like to say a bit of a unicorn now. What does that mean. Well jimmy seco is one of that rare breed of people who starts company right out of college and hits it big the first time around. But that's kind of a family thing for him actually considering the fact that he started a business with his two younger brothers. Who at the time. We're both still students. Incredible so that makes three four three and the family. That's unicorn now. Five years later the brothers company super coffee is valued at more than two hundred million dollars. And it's the fastest growing food and beverage company in the country according to the twenty twenty. Eight five thousand and fun fact that seco brothers appeared on. Abc's shark tank back in two thousand eighteen and they got turned down by the sharks but as you will hear later on one of the future. Investors in the business was actually watching that episode and reached out cold call to see if he could get into the company and invest in fact at this point jimmy and his brothers have raised over fifty million from a really interesting group of people. People like jennifer lopez a rod. Alex rodriguez aaron rodgers. Baron davis patrick. Schwarzenegger anheuser busch. And even we were and in the interview. Jamie's going to talk about his classic encounter with we work founder. Adam newman little sneak peek. He wasn't wearing shoes. Are we all that surprised at this point. So yeah very interesting story and all of that would be good enough to be here on the show but the real reason why jimmy caught. My attention was because i read an article about him in the wall street journal and the headline was this new york city coffee startup camps down by hiring philosopher. A locker room vibe was brewing at super coffee until the founding brothers hired an ethical risk consultant that move right. there is masterful. it's different bringing ethicist into your company to figure out your culture and avoid problems. I don't think i'd ever heard of that before. And i wanted to hear all about it. And so we're gonna talk about all of those things where jimmy today and we're also going to go a step further. I'll be talking to that very episode. His name is reed black men in the next episode of almost sapiens. after hours. i on monday now. If you haven't yet listened to after hours you might be asking yourself. What is after hours after hours is an opportunity to talk about things that came up in the interview. That was no time to get to or things that we learned from the interview and get deeper on certain topics my idea for after hours. And we'll be evolving. It is that a snack of old piece of content. You can listen to at the beginning of the week that gives practical tips new insights things that we talked about on the on the episode. But we didn't necessarily get to go into deeply and we can explore current events at all kinds of other things and so it's a. It's a great chance to touch base on mondays shorter format and i look forward to hearing from you. Your ideas what you think of it as we go forward and now onto the interview as i prepped for the discussion with jimmy i read that he liked this quote from mike tyson. The quotas this. Everybody has a plan until they get punched in the face that some wisdom and in fact jimmy says that that quote convinced him that he could start the business without having prior experiences and entrepreneur or in the coffee industry so to get our interview started. I asked him to unpack that and explain exactly what he meant. You know that might is quote. Everybody's got a plan until they get punched in the face. Think i see all too often entrepreneur. Shelf suffered from paralysis by analysis. Right where they're sort of sitting there waiting and and Drafting up this plan and these dreams in this this this go to market strategy but once you actually launch your product. It's a lot different than than how it is on paper. So i said start selling before he ready to and let the market validate the innovate and iterative from there. Okay so that sounds good in the back in the in the rear view mirror right but as we think about those early days when you decide to get this going. I imagine it wasn't that clear right. I imagine you were trying to figure out what to do. How did you even come up with the idea of this business like what. Why a coffee. That's better for you with your brothers. My youngest brother jordan was actually the founder. It was his idea and it was a solution to his own personal problem with starting point guard at philadelphia university five. Am practice late nights in the library. Kid was tire. You know it wasn't a great student so we needed extra energy in class and the only thing is school. Store offered was the starbucks frappuccino. The had forty grams of sugar in three hundred calories didn't really energy so he started making coffee for himself. No intention of starting a company ee added prote-. He added healthy fats coconuts. He added monk fruit to make good without any sugar. Make it taste good and it works so well for him that he started selling it to his classmates in his coaches and his teammates and then he took a step back and he realized he solved the problem for himself and he wanted to realize how he wanted to see how many other people face this problem and he realized that the bottle coffee industry was a two billion dollar category growing faster than any other beverage category and he was like. Wow if we can dethrone the starbucks frappuccino or steal share from starbucks. Rapper chino but making a product that tastes good. But it's also good for you gives you energy. We have a very viable business year and he decided to drop out of school. Forfeit is full. Scholarship called his two older brothers me and my brother. Jacob said boys on starting a coffee company. I just wanted to let you know. And i think made my my sort of paternal instincts kicked in and was like well. Let me come help you for a little bit too. So you don't screw up your life and five years later i'm still i'm still here and was it a simple as that like. What was the thing that i gave you the conviction that you should actually you and your brothers. Just go and work with them for me. It wasn't there wasn't conviction. I i liked the product in it. Worked but i didn't see what jordan's all jake did jigsaw when he saw and in for me like i didn't have any. I was super insecure. I was like the first few months the super coffee. I was training for the military. I was literally there as the big brother to make sure my two little brothers didn't grow up. Screw up their lives. And then once. I realized like wow. This is difficult and challenging and fun where we're actually having an impact on customers. Come to us and say. I'm a type one diabetic and i've never enjoyed c. Coffee before thanksgiving is so much like this is something i've always dreamed up. It was that kind of impact. Like wow this. This is something bigger than just a project in. We can actually impact a lot of people if we grow this thing to scale. And i think i scratched. We've found that challenge very filling. Now you also came in this is pretty slick man you come in and brothers idea and then you come in and become the ceo. So so congratulates younger brother of my own my own family. I'm super offended by that. But i imagine you guys had a lot of a lot of conversations about the so as you think about starting a business with your to siblings. Like part of me is like that's brilliant. Sounds great on paper. It's a great marketing. Hook all these sorts of things but from day to day perspective. Like there's a lot of opportunities for things. Go wrong. A lot opportunity for conflict for misunderstanding. Promotional how did you guys as you're setting up the business. Think about the three brothers what you would do and how to make sure you created a structure where you would get along instead of end up in some sort of conflict great question and and it goes back to the mike tyson quote like. We didn't have a perfect plan when we started. You know we everything we've done even today. We're building the ship as its flying so in the early days. Three of us did everything. We made deliveries. We printed invoices from quickbooks stock. The shelves we made the product by hand. We all stepped up and did that together and We were all. I mean we all come from the same background. We shared the same values. You know the same family. Our mom ought to work hard and be nice to people and that was what made it fun to work with each other in those early days when we were just grinding and i think as the business bigger we raise money we started to hire people are personalities are even though super close in age share a lot of the same same interests our personalities are very different and naturally we found ourselves sort of gravitating towards an essential third of the business. That was also something. We're passionate about so for me. I mean we need investment capital to fuel to fuel the growth of the business. I love networking. I loved making connections with investors and advisors and alumni so i naturally stepped into this investor relations role in fundraising role Jordan is the product guy. He's the innovator. The operator he loves goes into the product and how it's made so he runs operations right. He's creating the product that we sell. And then jake sales guy. He's carefree disorganized but he's super compassionate. He's funny he's the life of the party and he was selling super coffee to anybody and everybody so naturally we divided and got very clear with what are specific roles were because i think we're a lot of founders. Go wrong is they try and work on the same things together. And that's when anytime our roles overlap or there was ambiguity between responsibilities. That's when tension would happen like the decorative never been to. Ceo's there could have never been to people trying to work on the same thing because there's no accountability in that that system now. Did you actually sit down together. And say okay fine. We've been doing this for awhile. Things are starting to come together. We need we need structure. Let's actually sit down like you guys all live together. You told me before. He tweeted agencies. Sit in your apartment. You pull some chairs around the table. You open up your your bottles of super coughing. You just say like. Let's make sure everybody knows what they're gonna do like how did you. Did you actually do that or is it. did it just kinda happened. It was it was more physical than that. So i'm i'm actually the strongest brother and i just got him both in headlines and i said look was gonna go no There was never one meeting where we said. This is what it's going to be going forward. I think certain things happened where it naturally naturally sort of fell into our positions and one of them was After jordan dropped out of college a year later his head college basketball coach called him back and said hey man we need you. We need you to play. And at that point. The business was kinda role in a little bit We're figuring things out. We were starting to hire people jordan. We're still working full-time. And jake. And i said look like one of the things. We miss the most chicken that were both graduated college athletes at this point and we said one of things. We miss most plant sports like george. You can run this business for the rest of your life but you'll never be able to play college basketball again so go back play hoops. And that's when we sort of up until that point jordan was still the ceo but we decided as a family has three brothers that it's too. It would be too difficult for jordan to be a full time student. Athletes and still be the ceo and have the fiduciary responsibility to investors that we just brought on support for the following passion comes from lexus celebrating the obsessions that drive us to go all in from enthusiasts of all different spaces. My name is ashley. I am from los angeles california and i am a foodie to me. Food isn't simply stuff people eat. When they're hungry it's inventive. It's delicious and i love how food is sort of a catalyst that brings people together. Ashley started posting food. Photography on social media during college pioneering the food blocking space by just being herself creating something. That's interesting beautiful and quirky. I think that's what sets you apart. I think as units you are going to be yourself unapologetically. That's when people will really resonate with you and she believes passion is the key to success. Passion creates excitement. I think it's a fuel that really inspires drives people to their goals at lexus. They've gone all in on their passion designing appear sports sedan. The new lexus. Is designed to look as thrilling as dr learn more at lexus. Dot com slash. I s fascinating. I am listening to this story. I sort of like sitting in the seat of like your your mom right. You just mentioned her and thinking about like yeah. There was one kid who had dropped out of school and didn't get to finish either for the aca. The academic experience athletic experience. I was like oh man. I really wanted to go back to school. I'm curious as you were building the business in the early days or even today do you. Was there something in your upbringing. That sort of pointed to the fact that you were gonna do this a lot of times. We see that people who become entrepreneurs do so because the they are modeling behaviors that that they see from their parents right. Mom or dad was an entrepreneur. Grandparents did you grow up in a place where being an entrepreneur was was just kind of one of the things that was on the table for you to do or is this completely different than what you were raised in as a kid. Yes so a little bit of both you know we never expose to start ups or on the entrepreneurial journey. Our mom worked at the ymca. Our dad was a construction worker. So like i. I'd until we started this company. I didn't know what the term startup was. But the reason. I say both my mom and dad both played sports in college. We came in a super competitive environment. You know they. They were always supporting encouraging us to play different sports. We are undersized athletes so we had to work hard to to sort of get play football in college basketball in college But my mom and dad. They had me when they were twenty three years old and they had jake jordan all before the time they were twenty five. You know so. They had three kids bang bang bangs and nobody got them. They didn't know what they were doing. Right they just got out of college and my mom figured out how to raise us. She did a hell of a job but she was like just winging it you know and she was always there for us. She did everything she. She brought us a school. she cooked dinner. You know she she she worked out with us are was there to you. Every step of the way so a joke that like the way our parents raised us kind of like startup scrappy startup. Sort of figuring it out as they went in and we. My parents were super proud to send all three of us to college. Watch us play sports. Our whole lives so the way. Our parents raised us actually enabled us to to build this organization. You got started a whole foods and you did something that reminds me. We just had on a couple of weeks ago. Kara golden of hint water. Who i'm sure you know. And she tells a story in her book about basically. Her first client was whole foods. She develops this water. That's listen the episode. Everybody go back and listen to great. She develops this water in her house. She then takes it to whole foods her first customers whole foods. Pretty as. that's a nice way to start out when i was reading about you. Basically you did the same thing you you came up with this yet. Your brother had been experimenting with this formula. You come up with this. You decided to commercialize it and then you know you instead of just sort of Taking a very cautious approach you go to basically the best place you could be which is whole foods right. So how did you convince them that they should carry your product. Yes so whole foods was our first customer in this back in twenty sixteen before amazon acquired whole foods but it wasn't whole foods global one store in washington. Dc when i say global they're headquartered in austin texas and if you go down there yet meeting they could put you in all five hundred whole foods so we show up to one store and corporate corporate. Had nothing to do with it. We found the store manager. And the reason i say for amazon is because whole foods used to have a local program and basically all you needed was a sponsor advocate. That was the store manager to say. Hey this product. Unique enough It was the whole foods. Right near georgetown's campus. Jake was a senior at georgetown at the time. The guy was like look products pretty good. It's different enough but if you can get your college french to come from the campus to my store. I'll take your product in and that was like that was the inch we needed. That gave us an inch. We took a hundred miles. We got on the shelf. We broke that stores weekly sales record in the first four hours. We were there for samples every single day talking shelf point samples and because it was the only store we had. You know there was Superclub only one store and that one offer a month. My brothers and i showed up that store every single day for months and we took that sales data and we went to the next whole foods down the street and we said hey man like we're doing up the street if you give us an opportunity here we can do the same exact thing at your store. And that's how the first eighteen months went. We went from store to store to store and we wouldn't move from one store to the next until we were the best selling of coffee. So i mean it was a simple strategy. It just took a lot of effort. Yeah sometimes it takes the upper right. You gotta prove the point and even if you have to maybe give a little extra push so be it. Because you're you're seeing your customer and building your market now. You just mentioned georgetown and obviously is at georgetown. Alumna love that your brother went there. And there's another interesting thing that you did with the jewish community. Which is that. I was reading your brother. Through georgetown's networking events met one of the senior executives at we work arguments and then we work actually came in and invested in super coffee. Serve early on and then you were all in on we work. You had an office at the we work and you were. You were you were. Actually the coffee was was was given out at the. We work to people so that they could experience. It's like a perfect marketing channel. And that's a great way to start. Now we all know what happened there right we work. It's been a little tricky more recently. And so i wonder as somebody who was very close to we work and very very exposed to that culture and the way the business into their business model like. What did you learn watching what happened to we. Work yourself as an entrepreneur who wants to achieve some of the good things day but also avoid the things they did. That didn't work out is a great question man and it was. It was really cool growing up with a building our business at the time we work with sort of peaking and it's it's funny they just came out with a book on adam. Newman that the founder. Ceo of we were called billion dollar loser and we're actually quoted in book a couple of times as as just sort of investments. Adam was proud of. But i think some of the key lessons there We work was was more positive for us than than anything because we saw with this guy was able to create such a short amount of time. You know and it's not that adam newman was a con artist or a bad person. He convinced some of the smartest people in the world likes Masayoshi sun from softbank and jamie diamond. Jp morgan you know some of the brightest minds in business to believe in this vision that he had and that was super inspiring for us because that is what enabled us to take on starbucks and dunkin and coke and pepsi. You know it's like wow. This guy can do this through belief and vision and passion. We can do the same thing on a much smaller scale within our industry. I think we're on went wrong. Is got a little power hungry. Got a little carried away. You know because the effort in the actual reality of that vision needs to be brought to life through the through the work in and i actually actually doing things and i think i think adam and in the story of we work is sort of the beginning of this bubble that we're about to see Because there's so much venture capital in the startup. World in a lot of companies are getting huge valuations that that don't really have the sales or or the product or the ip to back it up So i think. I think the the market's going to correct itself the private market for for vc's in private equity even this year. I mean it was such a frothy market on the capital markets. That some of these private equity funds are looking to deploy capital and brands. Like us are still getting ridiculous. Valuation so I think few will be able to put their money where their mouth is and back. I driving calling the top of the bbc market for fifteen years now. So i've been up on that but it's interesting you talk about adam and what you're right. I mean i was an early member of we work so i was there in the second ever we work and i remember loving the business and thinking it was awesome and then over time like this sort of the rhetoric around we work completely disconnected from the experience because for me it was an office space. It wasn't like a new way to live my life. And i didn't really need all that other stuff. And so when when i saw the valuations i thought. Well this is a little silly. It's going to get crazy and it took a while. I'm curious you have any good Do you have any good. Adam newman stories for us. Yeah yeah so. The connection that mentioned arguments in with the cfo at we work at the time the president cfo and jake met him at a networking event. Georgetown in two thousand seventeen our second year in business. We think that five hundred thousand dollars in sales that year and argues love your story. Come on up in pitch pitch be at at We are the headquarters chelsea here. So jake goes off. He's excited for his meeting. With the president of we work in this big big conference room at we were talking about georgetown. How we got started how. We built the brand in a couple of weeks in washington. Dc and all of sudden this this guy walks in and we didn't know who newman was sky with long hair and a tee shirt look like a disheveled college student comes into the room and sits down. He was at to jake's. Who's this guy interrupting my meeting with the president of we work and jake let let them disrupt as for minute but he gets back on pitching already and Sure enough at the end of the meeting. The guy stands up and he says. Here's what i'm going to let you to do i'm going to. I'm going to allow you to live in my buildings for free. I'm going to allow you to work in my buildings for free. And i'm going to invest one hundred thousand dollars into your business. Now please get out of my office. I have to meet with artie. And jake was like what just happened. I think it was a home. Run for us the fact that we were going to get a discounted rate on our office. That was jake's goal. In that meeting is to get a discount from already avenue comes in and disrupts the whole thing. That's amazing actually. I've kind of awesome. And you kinda. I excited for you as you told me that story. I mean i can totally see in that moment how you're like holy mackerel. We have just hit it. I can only imagine that this was this moment of external validation that you probably just of flip the switch on a business support for this. Podcast comes from progressive. What would you do with an extra eight hundred dollars by plane ticket. Pay down your student. Loan treat yourself to those shoes. You've been eyeing with progressive. You can find out drivers switch and save save an average of seven hundred ninety six dollars on car insurance get your quote online at progressive dot com and see how much you can be saving national average annual car insurance savings by new customer survey to save with progressive in twenty nineteen. Now you you didn't stop there so you ended up doing a bunch of fundraising. The company is now valued on in your fundraising rounded more than two hundred million dollars. You've got investments from people like anheuser. Busch you've got some celebrity investor green bay packers quarterback aaron rodgers. You've got an investment from actor and multi hyphen it patrick schwarzenegger now. I was messing with patrick on instagram. I really do my research and so it's random. I don't know patrick. But i just sent him a note and i said hey i heard you're an investor in super coffee. What should i ask. Jim and he said asking the story of how he joined forces. I want you to tell me how patrie swertz naggar ended up investing in your company so we pitched on. Abc shark tank back in two thousand eighteen february two thousand eighteen patrick Son of arnold schwarzenegger and maria shriver twenty seven years old. He's an actor he's a model. He's a movie star and investor. He happened to watch that episode and he. He was so impressed by the three on that episode. We didn't get a deal for many of the sharks. We didn't get an offer from any of the sharks. Patrick found on instagram. And he he deemed. Does he said. Hey what's up. My name's patrick. I i love your business Do some angel investing on the side. I'd love to learn more about your product in your vision and see if we can join forces. So that's how it happened stoked you know we see schwarzenegger named pop up in. Rdm's we're like. Wow this is this is awesome. That was bigger than that. Ethnicity patrick to us was bigger than even if we got an investment from any of the sharks and we met patrick at a cafe in new york city. A few months later in in He decided to invest in the business and he's invested a couple of times since then And i mean we've we've grown super closest friends as business partners and as colleagues so. He's been an awesome advocate for super coffee. So patrick is a ten percent entrepreneur which is always good to hear. Now i'm curious. You think about folks like aaron rodgers and patrick. We've had other guests on. The show had celebrity folks on their cap tables. And you have also jennifer lopez. What is the value to you of having those types of folks in your company like how do you engage with them. What is it that that they bring to the table i we. We only work with athletes and celebrities as as investors. We don't believe in endorsement deals at don't think endorsement deals are smart for small brands. You know that you're when you get into the game of endorsements paying people for their image. It's you're competing with the multibillion dollar brand who do that for a living right pepsi coke super bowl commercials. Mountain dew that type of thing and for We've we've been very fortunate. Aaron rodgers jaylo. A-rod are all at a point in their career where they don't want to be known for their celebrity anymore. They want to be known as business people for coming in and using their creativity or their business acumen to help grow brands So for us. It's more it's more about collaborating with them. As as business folks in accessing their network their influence rather than their brand jaylo djilas got one hundred and thirty five million followers on instagram. She posted about super coffee announcing the investment a couple months ago and it got like a million likes. It drove like sixty thousand people to our website. But it didn't move the needle at all and things like that like the new york. Minute is very real. People see things like that and forget about move on versus our ability to call era and say. Hey can you get in touch with the president of anheuser-busch because he's also involved with presidente nuclear owned by anheuser busch like the ability to leverage. Somebody like schwarzenegger or a rod or jaylo is i think access to their network. You know i. I like to say influencers influence other influencers. You know so. It's not that we're using them to sell more coffee. We're using them to get in front of the right people who can help us growth thing that makes so much sense that. I don't think i've ever heard what that way before. But you're right people who operate at that level of the game. They're always super smart on top of being counted. You're not gonna find somebody who's killing it in one industry or the other show showbiz. Whose complete moron like you have to be smart to be successful. I've learned that over and over again. And the chances i've had to to interact with folks like that but the thing is one post on instagram or one interview on tv or whatever that thing is. We talked to entrepreneur all the time on the show. There's never just one thing and so thinking about how to see these influencers as ways to meeting other people who may not be in show business but could drive your business whether it's distribution or whether it's other types of exposure makes a ton of sense now i want to shift gears here to an interesting decision that you made that i really appreciate it and it's the first time that i was exposed to you so i spoke at a conference last year and i met this guy called read and read had Had been in an article in the wall street journal and the title of the article was new york city coffee startup camps down bro culture by hiring the loss for okay so this was about this article that was about the fact that you recognize and i think this is admirable. You recognize that the the business you were building had a culture that in the moments that we've lived recently for example the me to move man because this was a couple years ago now this is not even a twenty twenty event where i think a lot of people started thinking this way. This is two thousand eighteen. You said listen. We have a situation here where we could have a problem and we need to get on top of it before this gets out of hand and so you decided to bring in an emphasis in order to make sure that you had a culture that would be inclusive and that would make sure that you didn't have the kinds of problems that you saw and other businesses at the time. So take me through how. You knew that you wanted to do this. And how you decided to get in touch with black men to actually come in and work with your company. Yeah is a is a great question man. You really do the research so this was so. It's funny 'cause. I studied philosophy at colgate university in The reason i chose philosophy as my major one. I didn't know what it wanted to do but to. I thought some of the smartest professors in the school were philosophy. Professors took a couple intro to philosophy classes as a freshman and i was really inspired in moved. I the professors. So i took a course read was a professor at colgate and took an ethics course with read. I like it so much that ended up taking three or four more courses within and graduated from colgate. Say goodbye to read. Think i doesn't really cross my mind much other than as a friend as somebody who enjoyed working with in college. And then i see lincoln that he announces. Hey i left my teaching career on back in new york city. I'm starting virtue consultants to to work with businesses around ethics issues. And wow if. I enjoy learning so much from read that can introduce him to our team and have a similar impact. That'd be phenomenal. So read and i sat down and his rate at the time. We were closing our series and with that We knew we were going to scale quickly. And i also knew that my brothers and i never done this before you know we weren't. We were more student athletes than we were business professionals or corporate leaders. Okay so you started from a good place knowing what you don't know where did you go from there. We built an ethics statement. You know it wasn't a mission statement. It wasn't a vision statement. It was an ethics statement about how we wanted to treat our team how he wanted to treat our customers. You know what what was important to us as an organization and then we held ourselves to those standards by some of the actions that we put in place based on the ethics that we define with. And how do you know that that's successful. Is there some way that you can measure the impact of the work you did. Yeah i think it certainly It certainly had a positive effect on recruiting. You know we are clearly defined and it's sort of imminent in the folks that we hire so we attract people who work hard and be nice to people we attract people who share the values that we feel and that is one way that we've successfully scale. The culture is by being clear about who we are. Where we're headed we automatically attract people who are our share those those values so i think the biggest impact it's made is is in recruiting. We talk about this with so many companies mission driven companies on this show it goes beyond culture. It's about vision. And when you when you actually think about the ethics of a business which by the way very few people do it can permeate not just the way that you run your business but the type of people that you involve as well and we'll be talking to read about how they did this work next week.

CNN reminds talent not to masturbate on camera, Why Matthew McConaughey never dates his co-stars, Sex & the Citys Willie Garson reveals hes straight!

"What's super nutritious super delicious, and a little nutty American becomes the original supernet packed with all the good for you nutrition you need and the flavor that keeps the family coming back for. Recipes and more visit. American. PECAN DOT COM. By. Shooting. Welcome to the not but nicer it's Friday the Friday's actually pretty much every day I haven't really lovely life and getting up every. Morning. Gossiping with you is just a treat today joining us is our friend cory. Cory. Are you there? Hey Rob I'm here. Happy Friday baby happy Friday's what have you got time for the weekend anything fun were pleasure. What are you doing the? Work. Work Work Hey the you know the grind never stops again my Kardashian vibe going on could go in you gotta have a side Hustle. You know if you have a side hustle one that might actually become your main hustle but as long as it's doing what you love I really do I love I love gossip and even when I was a little boy in the playground in England Gossiping about. Was I knew everybody secrets and nothing has changed now a little money from it, which is lovely. Okay. What time is it? Time. This story. So anyone that's listening to the show for while knows that I'm very skirmish when it comes to sex I, don't. Think about it corey. So we'll yeah me on this one because we know it's a family show in my the kids in the car with the but we've got to we've got to get to it. So Jeffrey toobin A- from CNN elite goal contributor was allegedly caught masturbating while on a work zoom call. Now, he wasn't on a call with C. N.. He's also got another Gig at New Yorker magazine of Very Fancy magazine. Jeffries pretty much admitted. This was true and said how embarrassing it was and he thought the camera was off. So with all being jumping on these zoom calls Korean. I. Have Been Doing the show on Zoom Robin an in studio Dan I heart. So when you're at home, do feel a bit more relaxed a little bit more comfortable. I must admit I'm wearing a t shirt and jogging pants which I wouldn't wear to the IRS. So you're a little bit more casual however, this is taken in way way to far because of this now, everybody CNN the staff, the guests, the contributors Hanley told in no uncertain terms that such behavior it's not appropriate let. States, it's crazy. So normally when a guest goes on CNN dia sent a link, it's not as zoom something called Cisco Webex. I don't know what that is all, but it's a very fancy version of zoom its own CNN's internal program. Basically, I don't if they only but that's what they use and guess, told me the specific producers even tell them. This is good. I am to open in Google, not sleeping in safari so it's very specific. Information here. Now, normally when you go and see an Anna producer will send you a link, Sanjay some research they even send you sometimes some questions that you probably will be asked. Now, producers have to go another step a much further step I remind everybody to that as well as knowing what you're going to talk ballot as well as being up to the latest minute on all the research all the news as also should be wearing pants. Cool more detail what's going on? I mean the fact that you have to have a clause in entertainment clause for your guests and employees that pants must be warn it's a sign of the Times on end look imagine imagine the the new lake employee handbook the reprint. Now the cost of that to put the pants clause in. Hamble I know. How to avoid accidentally showing your genitals as Strange things that were really talking about. So let's just go on to tell me that everybody at CNN internally in the building they all get a GIG light of it. They are all talking about it Anderson Cooper and Chris Crowe Madeira where they see all this very, very funny and silly but actually surprisingly or maybe not he still got a lot of support in the building. So sounds. that. We all do this most of us do this at home and these are very strange times having cameras in your apartment. But if you haunt hagler displeasure yourself at home in the privacy of your own home, where should you be doing it now we should protect. that. Normally. There's no cameras in our homes. We do after be the world has changed, and so I mean I don't want to say have we ever been caught doing this 'cause I don't go down that road I. Mean I have got very comfortable on these zoom calls I've picked my nose on several of them. It's very different I know. I've certainly go exhibit. I would. I had my breakfast I had been on while I thought I, was waiting eating dating is fine. Eighty eight, that's. My job. Can. Have a cigarette. I don't smoke fat. What would what would you do if you tuned into today and I had a Martini glass even if it was like dot body, would you look twice I mean so Mark Lupu was on and I made him to a spin around in his apartment. So I could see windows I. Know I've never been a never been invited to mark's apartment. So that's the closest I've ever going to get to. This brings us to our poll question of the day. It's a wild day I poll question of the day, which is do. You think this is necessary nine for big companies, like CNN, to remind people of what is appropriate and what isn't giving this is do you think this is a good idea or do you think this is silly is it necessary or is it silly now? Had you asked me a couple of weeks ago I'd say this is crazy but now after Jeffrey toobin. Go vote you can vote on our twitter page is not nizer on our facebook pages. Naughty. Also be sure to check back. Monday to hear your results. Corey. Love. What are you working on? Well, it's interesting transition here because. Matthew mcconaughey who. Before I talk about the actual story you know he happened to have been caught years ago when he had a call at his house in the cops that rockies bike naked playing bongos life. was like before Zun, but he had his own issue with nudity, but but but now it's pretty interesting. He has shared with Howard stern this notion that he prefers not to date his co stars and to keep things professional. I think that's pretty good. Now, that's another potential work hazard if you think. So he told Howard stern nothing romantic happens and you keep things professional. Set It makes for a better movie. I think that's a good idea. Now, he says when people are kind of together in a film in their hooking up there kind of getting together and then they get married, you watch the movie you go. They're not as good together. Really but it's the movie were they met that you go oh, that was sizzling like if you think about it Angelina. Jolie. Brad Pitt. If you think about if you watch, was it Mr Mrs Mrs Smith yes. They were so good. Let me tell you I watched that film and I said Honey Angelina is taken that man from Aniston. I just knew it but you just can. You could see it right do you think about like idea of keeping it professional I I'm hopeless at this. I'm just not that sexual. So I, never ever had a romance in my office were. Never even flirtatious. I'm always dropping things. I'm on the road I'm type guy put. A friend of mine who used to do a show with me she was very sexual la and everything I loved she. I'm very. A barometer was touched my thought I and touch Oh. Shoot to change and she spent. All that with. With. Always, it was all just north of sexual. So for me, it's never really been an option like no one's ever come onto the beginning of. They haven't what about you corey have people at work have tried to give you a little bit of a wink. Yes and let's let me when I began in advertising when I was a young little pretty thing in my twenty still all. Cut Young Ish but yeah I have to say you know I had a couple of work moments. Factoring. Was it flattery? Sort of toxic scare you want was I liked it because I mean I think at that age from me. I thought I was like you know when you're in your twenties and you're in shape and was perfect you think you're God's gift. So at one of the people happen to be an executive at an ad agency and that was really flattering. So I tried to get a promotion out of it but. Let us know what you think how work romance is a good idea bad when I think it's a great question living along so many. Godson who played Carrie Bradshaw's bff Stanford I. Loved Him. Shellfire on sex and the city. Are we so wonderful him in him and Mario Kart and installed the show so he's actually revealing that he straighten real life I. Know. So we played shocked I know he played carries branch Orange Day be F F. Now he's revealing why he never actually spoke out about being straight while he was starring sex and the city. So he told our friend Vicki Gosden Heineke Mickey sometimes fills in. Mickey's at paid six. Now he told Nikki for years I didn't talk about it because I found it to be offensive to gay people people playing gay characters jumping up and down screaming that they're not gay like some have it was a bad thing if they were so he said I've never been straight closeted isn't that interest me so She's never be the straight closet but when people in the show would be batter he said, I'm an actor. This is what I do for a living when I was on white collar nobody asked me if I was a con in real life and it's very interesting. Isn't he said this do for a living portray different people how do you feel about This I thought he was guy to admit idea me league Dawson Garson was straight I didn't know I'm surprised at that because he played that character so well, I actually can't even imagine him being straight but you know when I did they last glad awards two, thousand, eighteen on the red carpet that was a question I posed to all the stars from. From, the cast of pose to Shangila from drag racing who had who had gone on to do the film. Lady Gaga. A star is born and that was a question that a lot of them had mixed answers even Hollywood lot of gay artists. Some of them believe that if you're straight, it shouldn't matter if you can play the role, it should go to the best actor and some people say there is not enough opportunities for gay performers so it should go to them if there is a gay. Role now keep in mind the sex in the city though was in the nineties and there's a different time. So the attitudes are much different as more opportunities for gay performed assets and your career wasn't over right away. I'm thinking of Eric McCormack who I love will and grace when they will and grace in the nineties they made it very clear. He was straight in real life. You out of the marketing campaign because they wanted to make sure a straight audience felt comfortable watching the show and they added a straight audience because the sort of numbers will and grace to bring in to be successful you couldn't just get that from a gay fan base too. Much more complicated actually than it first seems what's going with Jennifer Gardner. I. Well, you know this is a great one too because it talks to the whole idea about celebrity and and the and the problem with potsy going on that's always been a problem. So Jennifer Garner you know she talks about the circus of being married to Ben Affleck and she opened up recently about what it was like to be married to him and be followed by the pop rock to like twenty four hours a day and she said it sometimes they. Were like at least six cars, maybe twenty cars outside her house and outside the school when they went to take the kids to the pediatrician and she says, it's a big celebrity problem. But unless you're going through it, I don't think she feels the public really understands how serious that can So she and athletes separate in two thousand fifteen and have three kids together, Violet Serafina, and Samuel levels, names and but you know she admits it's the cost of doing business. In that in that world and you know I always think about Princess Diana is the first thing that comes to mind and I told you understand how scary this can be and other things rob she talks about the kids are terrified because the cameras look like guns because of all the equipment and the you know the the harnesses shoulder holders, and so it's it's scary. What do you think about dying? A little bit excite weren't for these people I worked with Jennifer Lopez when she was dating. Dan. AFLAC. So I. Hand the attention. Obviously, they were not there. Must be different if you're the center of it, I was on the outer circle of it but I've been in cars with Jaylo and Jessica Simpson where the call couldn't move because the tension and photography and flashes you blinded to when there's flashes go off, you can't see. It's it's really quite something but at the same time to look, she's very, very smart Jennifer both Jennifer czar because it is the cost of what they do. Yes. He's part of the business. Now, if you want to be an actress Meryl Streep, you don't need the sweet loosen the Showbiz and the mclamb, but it's a double edged sword because they to to. A certain extent, joy part of the reasons they are actresses, celebrities, they enjoy the spotlight they're not. They're not that shy Jennifer Lopez is into neither Jessica Simpson. So it's a double edged sword, but it must be must be particularly tricky when children are involved Jaylo and Jessica. Simpson didn't have children I worked with them, but there's times when it got a little bit scary I remember once being with Jessica somewhere I'm not joking she got in the trunk of the car I swear the run in a garage and there were so many photographers outside there. They were going to chase the car and it got a little bit dangerous and. Got In the trunk of the car and we laughed about it and is it just texter in the back because keep your way to make sure breathe. So Rob. So I'm curious away. So the idea was that she can get in the trunk. Drive out nobody. Wants, they see you're not in the car and they don't follow your drive three. pullover you let get from. The shoes everywhere. Throw around the back seat and then you go to the restaurant Oh, it's my gosh, it's. Because because it wasn't my life I felt like I was. A fly on the wall. I was. Watching the beetle also is very, very exciting. I wanted to remember Barry Manilow is in Britain onto our an Irish with Barry and we came out of then you and I was in his car and it was this. And I think what should have been really exciting soon, a war of love there was no angered the fans are just the most beautiful people and they love him. Amount of amount of RAW. The amount of attention was a little bit frightening. Let me put it like this. Imagine if you are somebody who doesn't really enjoy all that attention on your birthday and a friend throws you a big birthday party it's. All these people coming toward you and you're like, oh, so I can understand it's a little bit overwhelming. Have you got to move along? So ruining I ask you enjoy. Delicious Leah.

Pete Davidson is making jokes about his dick in his standup sets since he's returned performing in the wake of his break-up and mental health scare believe stemming from possibly his relationship with Arianna 'Grande or his meteoric rise to fame or his just his or just his shit. His, you know, baggage all his things I really thought we would get to stop talking about Pete Davidson once once they were once he and Arianna or done, but like you just keep bringing them back. He made some stupid joke about his penis. So it was like girls now like she shouldn't have done that. Because now girls will be supported and they sleep with me. And to that I say, of course, they'll be disappointed Pete. I don't think you're dick is as big as she said it is. I wish you the best of luck am Google or or. Anything? It does no such thing. It's just the nature of the job yet. She loves him. I do that's true. But I just want him to relax. I want every celebrity that I find problematic that I also enjoy to relax to slake thirty five percent. He's the only one I can think of right now. But I'm sure there are more now. And I'm sure we'll talk about next week breathe. Oh. Very weakened. Put a Davidson moratorium on I feel comfortable with that. That is that. That's all. I have on that. When you sure. Yeah. Maybe next week owed perhaps next week. I'll prepare one I could probably give you like three high coups. But that's very for now. Yeah. I've said it so I'll do it more art devoted to David world for. Anyway, let's move on from Mr. Davidson Sally shell looks like Bryan singer in the news for being a Grosso being a sexual predator. A sexual predator. There was an something published in the Atlantic last week. I believe the beginning of last week. It had interviews with his alleged victims all of whom said that he was sexually inappropriate with him. When they were young. I mean, and this has been I feel like I've been hearing about these rumors for ten years. Yeah. They've been this is not news. I mean, it is new. Okay. But it's not new new is what I meant to say. Yeah. I mean, I would hate him. Even if he didn't he wasn't a sexual predator because I hated bohemian rhapsody so much. It was such a bad. And I was so offended by it. Yes. Yes. But it's like an added. I mean, I actually I guess the real reason I hate them is because the sexual predator the home bohemian rhapsody is just like the cherry on top of the poop cake. It was. I mean again at Madyan, I reiterate said this in a live show. It was bad movie. I'd like to say it again, it's a bad movie so bad. It doesn't deserve any of the awards that it has one does not deserve. Any of the words that might win the Academy Awards and then Romney Malik saying. Oh, yeah. Said something along once. He's like, oh, I didn't. I never even heard that. Right. Like, yeah. Looking right. I mean, all these people have heard it. Everyone knows everyone loves money more than they love anything else. Right. Like every celebrity who like think of all the women who like I think like Kate Winslet and like a bunch of other women who've worked with Woody Allen said the same Shipman. Yes. Yes. Like, lots of people who have worked with people who had stories floating around about them for years stuff that has been sort of just like common knowledge, you don't really talk. About have said, I didn't really know. And the thing is I'm pretty sure they did. I mean, yes, all party. Where Bryan singer allegedly was preying on these very young men or boys. We could say we could we should had a lot of other celebrities at them, also true. There are many I witnesses alleged ax, many accomplices or who were complicit that's the word. I one of my a meme like a celebrity interview that will always stick in my head. It was Kristen Stewart and my main enemy Jesse Eisenberg here number one enemy. Sped talking about Woody Allen. 'cause it was when that movie cafe society was coming. They're both in right. And they're just like like they meant they talked about the abuse allegations. And they're just like I mean, what it comes down to just like, we just don't know where we like only two people really know. And like, we're one of them, and I would never just I would never walk that line. To say out loud. But that's okay. If there was just like the whisper of like, a rape or sexual assault allegation. Run anybody. I'd be like, you know, what I'm Lee hot young celeb-. Yeah. I'll. Mega movie with someone else. Let me take my wares. Elsewhere, we'll pack my bag you won't miss me. I'll be fine lick. So that's cool. But he also Bryan singer said, it was a homophobic. Mir campaign, and I'm like, I think rhapsody was a homophobic spear. Take that brand singer. Yeah. Just. Same different year. Same bullshit this next item. Though, I'd like to move on to because it seems very fun. Andy Cohen is having a baby. Oh, yeah. He is. He announced that he was having a baby couple of weeks ago on watch. What happens live? If all goes, according to plan about six weeks time, I'm going to become a father. The baby is imminent because he had a baby shower that announcement was really funny to announce sounded like he was dying. I certainly at least leaving Bravo or something like huge. Like I thought like his life was threatened, by the way. He didn't choice news. Yeah. Everyone was happy. There are a lot of housewives on that episode all of them. Probably cried seems like everyone was very excited. Right. I loved like seeing like treated as Jude ice her like insanely buff armed kind of reach frame squeeze Andy. Like traces of bodybuilding exploits are like my favorite thing that she has done thus far. Yeah, she's done so much sure for me to enjoy. But this pivot is my favorite and go how much more effectively she could've flipped that table. That she could've flipped at least like three tables like at the same time. I also like Kyle Richards of an original housewife of Beverly Hills through Andy very fun looking baby shower, indeed, which just shows like if you don't have to carry a baby. Yeah. That look great. A wide variety of housewives. Were there Daniels star? Was there Sonja Morgan? Was there Denise Richards? Was there Theresa was there? Niimi leeann lockin just fade into harks. Was there? Weird. Candy was not interesting. She's in the big brother house. I think oh is candy trapped the moral issue literally trap somewhere. Liberty big, bro. That's right. I was some rise that failures their dared show her face. I mean, Favreau loves a party, and I guess Andy loves Faye drug. Yeah. So favor would find a way. Yeah. The way was Andes Andes generous heart letting her in there was amazing video of fleece arena. Like as the party like clearly had gotten lit Schorr screaming into a microphone, all you bitches better dance on this mother fucking table dance for Andy right now he paid for your fucking live. Dance for Andy. In your life. Oh my God. I don't know. I I just was struck with a glee that I haven't felt since childhood. That's amazing. That's beautiful. I love that to watch that video. It was so good and true. I mean, he did. But also, I loved it. He's just like this. I don't know. I don't love it. Actually, it's terrible. But a bright this man who is like gotten so rich off of exploiting. Women credited women who are very willing to be exploited. It was a give and take situation. Right. And then it was like, they know it too. They know yet you got to kiss the ring. Yeah. They know exactly. They know where their bread's buttered. They know what they need to do. So you have to put on the bandaged dress. You have to go to the a star is born themed baby shower for Andy Cohen, you have to dance table of arena asks you to dance table. You must also notably. I feel like more notable. Maybe was the people missing about any Frankel interesting. No countess. And then he reposted a mean that was like the face when you see that Bethany and Luan weren't at the at the thing. Yeah. It was just something about like her missing it interest, and like alluding to something shady, but then her caption was just like sorry to have missed it, Andy, which doesn't tell us anything. No. That's just. That's just confusing messaging. She doesn't said she was like, I'm rehearsing for my cavalry. You are ma'am. Okay. Not. There is not enough rehearsal in the world to I also just don't think it'd be a healthy environment for her. So doesn't sound like it. No. If again, if Lisa arenas screaming at a bunch of middle aged women to dance a table because Andy Cohen paid for their lives. You'll also just wild to see all of them in one place. That sounds that sounds the most fucked up that sounds like some sort of like horrible hall of mirrors like Disneyland. Like, if Bravo had a theme park that called sir sore if sir how to back room that was just a corral, just like whoever they could find at that time to just go there, and you could go there and party with them that seems a fun for about three minutes before your ears. Your brain starts leak out of yours. And you'd have to say goodbye to my brain liquefied. I would feel very nervous in there. I would drink one drink very quickly. I'm be like, I must go, and I would leave. There was also an incredible picture of Andy with all of the housewives the only other guy in the fixtures. John mayer. Also, it should be. It was. That's nice. So I can't wait for the world to meet Andy Cohen, baby. Boy, I'm sure we'll hear all about it. I hope that Andy does not do a photo shoot. Like pres- Hilton did with his first baby is successful insane. That press Hilton photo shoot has been burned in my brain for since I saw it for the first time. It's if people don't know what he's talking about. It's of press Hilton in the bath nude daughter. Yes. I think he's a little shorts. You might be wearing a small brief actually thing. But you my best. I think the best thing about that picture is that his invis-? Align studs are very of. Someone who suffered three those stunts myself. I also the one thing that always strikes me about presented that he looks like Peter. He looks like Peter had a child with Ron Perlman. No my fuck. Oh guide. Oh, may Peter, which is way more handsome. That's true. But I always got a pita. I just like in passing. It's like how I think that Samantha Markle looks like Kim control. I think that's different interesting. Offering just provided the thick. I'm so sorry. Peter England, two comparison today have in my brain. I'm just presenting them to you now. Sorry Tyrian to true that I've learned that. Okay. So yeah. Good for them. Great for everyone. You know, what it's a party? I would like to go to a party Mike and whatnot that are that nine when you're sending out invitations to not have to size anyone or the next one. This last item on the list is can be briefed. Because I don't want to spend too much time thinking about their relationship. But people magazine would love it. If I thought about Chris Pratt and Catherine Schwarzenegger's relationship like all the time. I don't like those weird Cherchi song people. I'm not into it. But they are been cut. They've been covering it sincere engagement with like a breathless level of attention that I do not understand it as their jobs like I'm not stupid. I just don't like it so quick engagement. It is a very quick engagement believe they're getting married later this year. It will be from what I've read it will be a ceremony that has plenty of room for Jesus. Thank goodness. I don't know what we would do if it didn't. And I hope the Chris Pat doesn't run for public office. I oh he will run as like a weird libertarian. Yeah. He's going to. T-shirts up to say things like land of the free. Always say laugh, it's like vague, patriotic statements like, yeah. Lethally freedom isn't free. It's gonna that's going to be quite colours. Don't run. I'm so excited to see where they go. But I am tired of hearing about it. But unfortunately, I don't think I don't think I'll have a choice. Yeah. I know reprieve I very much curious about like what? Growing up in the Schwarzenegger. Household was like, yeah. I think I get Patrick Schwarzenegger and Conor Kennedy. Or what's the what's the one day to Taylor swift? Oh shit honor. I get like those two like, I don't know. I guess they're all kind of because Maria Shriver. Yes. I kind of confuse them sometimes as like, just blonde yachts. Boy. Right with a job. Yeah. Blonde. Polo lacrosse Mun. Yes. I can't picture Patrick Schwarzenegger. But now, I'm just thinking of Conor Kennedy. And like, he dated Miley. Oh, Taylor too. No, yes. Yes. I don't know. Kid can't confirm. But yeah. So that was like, I just. Like Maria Shriver seems like kinda smart and reasonable are definitely. But then your dad is Arnold Schwarzenegger as the governor of California term. It's like the Terminator is also like a weird Republican, I feel like by today's standards. He's like a century. He's probably like Arnold Schwarzenegger's like all run for president like sheriff. Who who care? I just whatever I'll vote for who has let me just to someone grabbed my hand. Make it go on the voting. Anybody different? No voting is important everybody. Everyone should vote. Everyone should not be formed apathetic as I seem to be Maddie as much more informed than I am follow her lead. Do your research research. You know, maybe volunteer at the polls you could do that. You know, how far does your patriotism and civic duty take you all the way to the White House because it take you as far as Chris Pratt. Putting on a T shirt for the marines, which he never served in. That's right. Or does it just at least get you to vote? I mean, you're that's that's a journey for you. We do not see the future. Thank god. Ooh. Can you imagine that would be really upset imagining both of us like painted like the war boys in Mad Max. Around doing this podcast. Who's to say that we won't do that next week? You know, it's true. It might happen. Yeah. So in conclusion, I don't wanna hear about their relationship anymore. But I know that I'm going to so I'm just bracing myself for the inevitable. But I would just like to go on the record as saying. I don't care. Yes. It's more Davidson news, please. I will actually start preparing Davidson digest that I will share with Mattie biweekly, Pete Davidson bulletin. Yes. It will just be a memo that I spend my valuable time working on. And we'll do it instead of sleeping you're gonna love it. I can't wait go up. Are you like me a malnourished sickly fan fire fight choice? But also, you don't feel great for those of us who maybe don't get our vitamins and nutrients there is an excellent new service called CARA where you can go online, you take a quiz.

And maybe you don't know exactly what your body needs and care of kind of takes care of that for you. And again, I am a very lazy person, and they sent vitamins directly to my door addressing all of needs. They're very easily portioned out. You know, exactly what you're taking.

We get together each week to talk at the biggest news from the world of video. We also discussed the games were playing from the most elaborate blockbusters to the most interesting. Indie games. We're joined by a variety of guests from the world of video games from legendary developers to famous streamers to TV host to one time. We had on an NFL kicker. Find us at dot com or wherever you get your podcast. We are so excited to be sitting down with writer director and die hard rent. Head back Schwartz to talk about rent rent. Brent brennan. Day, but today at cetera. We are talking about this in because it has always rent is always a fun thing to talk about. But also because on Sunday night, FOX aired rent live five sort of live. Wren kind of why again, I I called it rent lived. Oh is that? Okay. Because the man who played Roger broke his angles the dress rehearsal and something like I dunno shuttle him on and off stage at opportune moments because they didn't have an understudy. This is yet. I mean, I was watching this with a group of friends on Sunday, and everyone seemed very perplexed as to a wide. There is no under study for Roger and be like whether or not this was some sort of conspiracy to have it not be live because they were like why was the why was addressed hersal taped? And why was the dress rehearsal tape like so well until professionally and I was like guys, I cannot entertain this conversation. Sure. There's a reason. But these are some good talking points just to start. I think goodness. And also knowing that Adam has cowed the Oji. Roger was there backstage the entire time. They didn't close out. It would be very funny if they like made him out there shoved him in those tight pants like you got this. I also was at the end of the show they brought the entire almost the entire original cast out and for out fast gal had to sit not a table like. Like, you know, twenty yards away from everybody because he was keeping the new Roger company, which was nice, but also little little apparently the studio audience saw an actual live version in which the actor playing Roger was being wheeled about in a wheelchair. And I don't know why they didn't just broadcast that because that is I know so no day. But today just go forward with it. All of the clips I saw on Twitter of what the studio audience was actually seeing were fucking amazing. Right. Like Roger foot on a like racing. His foot being pushed around by like whoever was available at the time doing, you know, giving it his all everyone was sort of dress down a little which I enjoyed that had that looked more like of good fun dress rehearsal to watch as opposed to what we watched a on Sunday. Yeah. Especially because if final dress rehearsal, that's sort of still intact is like you're marking it you're not going as you might be a little half assing it like saving your voice for the performance. So the facts the version where they they might have been holding back just makes me angry. I agree if they did like just make Roger wheelchair would make it even more impressive that he went out. Yeah. She does. Yeah. You're in a fucking wheel broke your ankle offstage during commercial break, and your I was most upset by his toes, which were visible the every time the foot swaying into into camera. Like, I was just like not they could put some sort of blanket like a drape over it unseemly during ones on Lori when he was sort of like hauling himself around that table. It looks like he was limping and I was like Wah. Like is it did they did they surprise us with this secret live shot? Does the virus? Starting his foot. The virus takes hold in. My foot actually does has diabetes. Yeah. He's got. He's got doubts fine out. He had gotten sit of the virus. I do want to take back a little bit going back in time. It's the early nineties boy Jonathan Larson is approach by Billy Aronson who wants to write an updated version of LA Boheme, a Puccini opera about a struggling artists in Paris. But they want to set it in the late eighties during the aids crisis in the Lower East Side about a new new kind of artist. Then fast forward Aaronson drops out because he doesn't really like where it's going. Jonathan Larson keeps going it. Slowly was shaped into the play. We know today, and then very tragically the night of the friends and family dress rehearsal. Jonathan Larson died of something they think it was caused by undiagnosed Marfan syndrome varies offing. So that kind of brings us to like what the lore of rent is. And I'm sorry. If that was a boring to sue clearly already knew that as. I was at theater major after all. Wonderful wonderful. And so. Then it kind of became the sensation. It became a sensation that, you know, it's been performed in all different countries and languages, and so what I want to ask you is. What was it about it that spoke to you first off? What was it a bath that play? Aspirational? I mean, I was I desperately wanted to be an actress or a performance artist. And then here's a show about performance artist. And you know, I had grown up in boring little suburb in New Jersey, right outside of New York City. And I'd always loved coming into the city and to me the idea of being a starving artist in the east village was just everything wasn't interested in the aides or the heroine part short shorts and like the urban tribe in like these people were sticking it to the fuck, man. I don't even know what that meant yet. Just not just not paying rent. That's it twenty paying fucking rent when it when it first opened on Broadway. There is such an amazing culture that sprung up around it because it was long before Hamilton did it they were doing rush tickets for twenty dollars. So that kids like us could go see it and people would camp out online, and I had several friends several male friends who met their first boyfriends on that line for rent. That as we know. Not a surprise in place for them to me touching. Put still Swede felt a genuine Thrum of emotion briefly. When you mentioned that that's nice. Well, you know, I think rent helps a lot of people young people sort of start to come to terms of maybe their sexual identity, and maybe your first beginning steps out of the closet were to go become a rent head and meet someone else who is very similar place. Definitely I remember first hearing about it at the summer camp. I went to when I was like nine or ten because all of the counselors were teenage girls, I have Sesto or I remember asking one of them what it was about. And she goes you're too young to understand. And then that moment, I was like, I swear the earth. I'm standing on. I'm going to listen to this God damn us. And I'm gonna get it. And I'm gonna I'm gonna love it because I can do that. Way to get you into musical. It's tell you like you wouldn't understand. I know it's like in a gun is a nine year old looking up to these girls. I was just like. Think of how I I I don't actually remember like the first moment that I heard like that like, I don't remember the moment when I became aware of it. I just remember listening owning the the double CD and listening to it so much all of the time. I was surprised at how many of the words is still new will watching it on Sundays crazy. The answer is almost all of them all all every single one of them except for the lines that they change to make it safe for broadcast television. It made me so mad. I would have been TV, I get it standards practices. But there are some that were super surprising, like poo poo is in is an acceptable. Fox true. Oh, yeah. They also take that one. Not like the F word right now. I think they also didn't say piss during the didn't they send him today on your stoop to be fair while I was watching this my friends who I was watching this with were singing every line. And also performing it behind me every time I would turn around as there's just a lot of them. We're just really getting back to our roots. Got it was better than the actual. I it was the Tango Maureen that I witnessed was electrified. We're being worn. Do you have like what was the first song that grabbed you? Oh, man. The first one that like hooks me was one song Laurie because I thought it was just so epic. And then it wasn't just once on Lori. It was the way that it. Went seamlessly into light my candle, which yeah. On. On. Like didn't do end fake math. Not not exactly as I got is. I had the double CD which I also made a tape of. So we could listen to it in the car, which didn't have good CD player. And I listened to it to death to the point that my father used to just make fun of the lira all the time, and I would get so mad. He would always be like living in America. At the end of the millennium words denied. I particularly love the parts where different songs combined. So that like Rogers singing one theme like Mimi and seeing another one like that's the stuff that makes my heart just flutter with like, Aw, I know. It's like really weird feeling where it's like, you're like something in your chest is swelling or. Exactly, I I have that. I wonder if that's like something that I mean, I guess musical Frisians are thing. People have this is like a Broadway baby special. Yeah. Because I also get it during one day more limousine when it's like. Sure lin-manuel calls it the all thing. He does it in nonstop the last song of act one of Hamilton sort of echoing the lovey Bowen place in like, yes. When all these people come in singing different lines like ice, wear my heart swells to bursting out of my house. Yeah. I know that feeling too. I think I'm trying to think of what my favorite song. I've always liked without you. I also learned how to play that on the Pano believe maybe the one only, and then I've always been parcel, and then, of course, take me or leave me, those are the ones that I that I listened to the most honestly, that's a small a teen. Can I admit that I really have always disliked, Roger and Mimi Yoho. Yeah. I think I've always found their relationship to be very boring because you ship Mimi and many. Yes. You have like a secret love for Benny that we could get into when we talk about. Mario the show. He can sing. But I don't know. I think I like Collins and angel were what always got me and Colin saying. Living cries of our coverage. When he sings it alone that always just say my forgot about his was the best performance by far last night. I was like oh my God. Let me follow you around. I will say that the repris of all cover you at the funeral lacked. Some of that it has when it's not sung when it's sung by baritone. Much more like I was much more moved on the original Broadway cast, recording, correct? Which is honestly the only thing I can think of you asked Annan. Martin also was like his voice was so much lower than. Wraps like Adam rough right? And any mental wraps is that was off. Putting to me also thought this Mark was very sexual. He was too hot. He was a little high. Grant, very nerdy. And now I saw a bunch of stuff on Twitter people were complaining about hot, Mark. And I do just want to say, I always thought Anthony Rapp was super hot. I had a huge Crump on him. And I remember like waiting for him at pride events bisbee. Like, I love you Langone. I also say, and I know I said Adam route before because I've mixed up the the Anthony Adams, but like Anthony revs like a hero to he's leaving one. Who is like the whistle blower on Kevin Spacey. Oh my God. That's right on also stars of adventures in babysitting. True. True. Great point great point. I once went to a a rent sing along. Oh and afterwards. And the rap surprised everybody with a human a, oh, dear. But my second hand embarrassment for the audience because they all acted like maniacs. He clearly was put off by my second embarrassment. Was so bad that I had to leave. Oh, dear. I like left, my friend. I can't be in this. I cannot be in this space was returned. Nice people were asking. It was more like any time. He would try to answer people were like, interrupting him where it would be like, you know, like, you're all too young. Probably remember the Lower East Side as it was. And then just, you know, a bunch of I'm not, you know, it's just like, well, it's not about you. Just like every QNA is kind of awful. That's true. I always really liked all of like, the I think it's because I have such a low voice like the songs that I sing along to. But I always really liked all of the boy songs. You'll see I think is one of my favorites. And then yeah, what you own. Always do. That's a good one. Yeah. So I think like again, I was like kind of the more upbeat, but like. Macho I just love I just love something that will potentially make me cry all without you through pres of all cover, you always usually the trick. Which was nice long ally. Will I is one that always gets me? Oh, yeah. That's a good one. That's a good one. The fact that it went in the broadcast last night from will is straight into a spot for Dumbo. Oh my God. Oh, man. One thing that really bothered me about the live show and the funeral scene. And I actually didn't notice it. But then a friend pointed out is that friend of the show, Robert Akron. Is that angels family was at the funeral which is like a really big part of the musicals that they refuse to come. Oh, yeah. That's oh. Is it did we know for sure that that was her family? No, I am. This is what we do. We just say things and. Perpetuate them. Without fact checking. I will have to go back and check, but it was one of those. They also like. Changed the part with the priest where priests telling Collins that it's like. There for the funeral. Yeah. Although in terms of updating I very much liked that angel is now established as a non binary character. Yeah. She is not a drag Queen. She is a gender fluid right person. Who is is finding her identity. How did how did you guys think? Valentina did. Here's the she looks beautiful. You let's beautiful. She looked so good. However, again, maybe this was part of the holding back because it was dress rehearsal. But oh, I had second hand embarrassment may took us on mid to. I mean the cover. You was just not nothing was really reaching where it needed to go. I feel for you tomorrow for me was a bit of a mess. Just a bit. Yeah. Just a little bit. But I love Valentina nothing. But love for Valentina. Oh, of course, not we all live Ellen Tina mega apparently soda audience. I mean, they were hooting so loud, you could barely hear her. That's true. They they loved her. And you know what? That's what counts another thing. I mentioned is the ensemble on this live. Yes. We're just really hamming it up bankers. Oh, yeah. They were pulling some phases and like beard guy feel like there was a guy who decided beard does every single opportunity. He was like. The camera guy. The honest living on his living him. Oh, it was just here's the thing. Musicals are inherently Courtney. I think making I I'm you just staring at you. With disdain, you know that I love the musical. But I also think that they're Courtney fax, this is my personal opinion. Beck's I'd love to hear yours. Well, I mean musicals are inherently about heightened emotion because that's what makes us burst into song in. So if perhaps you find heightened emotion to be Courtney that I understand that point of view fake, you I'll I'll take it or I will go with that argument. Yeah. I just think that okay. Sure, we can we can take the respectful row, which the heightened emotion to burst into song et cetera. I think that something about making it live on TV like made it war. I don't know. But one thing we can kind of talk about is the movie. You know, I think it came out and what two thousand four thousand five at rate. It sounds right. It was bad. I am not Anna them film. I'm sorry. No. I don't think anybody is not any rent. Head worth our salt. Seriously worth worth or t. That's nice good. I mean, it's tough. When you take the presentation that's meant to be done live, and in the moment, where there's that feeling as an audience member where you're, you know, meshing with the performers on stage and all of a sudden put up the breakfast in distance of being on TV or in a movie theater or whatnot. So there's there's there's always that like, how are you going to film this? I think some of the live have done a better job than others. In terms of being like, we understand. This is no longer on stage. We're now sheeting or the medium. But that movie version, it just it just took away everything that was rent. Yeah. Except for the original cast which made it so jarring. I know because they are like years old sorry. Yeah. Up Daphne Rubin. Vega who is the originator of the role of Mimi was replaced by reserve Dawson because Daphne was pregnant at the time of shooting. But also Mimi is supposed to be nineteen and like even Dawson it's kind of too. Imagining a woman or forty blocked the movie out of my head because I watched it with my then roommate, and we are both big redheads. And we both just hated it. It didn't feel offended in any way, shape or form like instead of shooting on avenue B, it was like let's shoot in the back. Lot version of avenue b it's fake, right? It was like the Universal Studios. Like, New York, exactly. Of. Yeah. I how many times have you seen it live. I think four for. That's good mount. That is a good amount. I never had a lot of rent. I for my sixteenth birthday. My dad got me front row tickets to the touring company in Madison, Wisconsin go and I remember like getting split spit on by the singers and being disliked God. What do you just being like give it to me in a Cup? You know, like just slow. I don't know just close to very dressed up. It was some nice. I don't know. Yeah. I thought. I saw as a birthday present. Also. And I remember waiting afterwards outside of the cast door to, you know, meet meet as many cast members as I could. And the woman who does the solo in seasons of love I mistook her for the actress who was playing JoAnne. And I don't know why decided to say this. But I was like as a gay law student. It's very important to me that you're portraying strong, lesbian lawyer. I wasn't a law student. I had no idea what sort of sexually. I was. I just needed an in. I was wrong. That's incredible. Embarrass and I'm I'm so sorry to this day about that. I'm sorry. I'm sorry remote. You were. You were young. You were. And now. I'm looking. Yeah. It made sense at the time. I was so overcome with emotion understand burst into some it happens. It happens to the best of us. Is you get any? Did you get any autographs though? I did. I did I got Anthony Rob's autograph. And I believe Daphne Rubin Vega. Those the woman who was not JoAnne. The woman who was the soloist from Susan's was very offended. And then I was like I lack. I'm sorry. Larger black women. All look the same to me, apparently, which I at my seats were really far away. Let me also say that they're fair. That's okay. Thank you. We things happen. We all make mistakes. So thing that I also notice maybe I was wrong. So please, correct me. I don't think take digs was there. I know he wasn't some of the photos. I think Anthony Rapp posted some photos of the fam-, and I think I saw him in. There was either the end the seasons of him on stage. But at that point like, I was I was weeping. I mean who knows what I was seeing. I was just thinking I was like, ooh, Tina got rent on the divorce. She looked. Could be. I think he was there. No again. I clearly also I mean, I was also half asleep. I was briefly reinvigorated when the most of the original cast returned to sing. Because I was like, oh, this sounds so nice. I love the way. This sounds. Why wasn't like this the whole time, and I thought digs, but also my eyes were slowly closing it was my bedtime. This sounds a little bit like the album. I've been listening to since nineteen ninety six. Recognize this though. I get it. Now. I do I will say that from the live cast. I think fitness a Hudgens was good. I thought so the Maureen role as I've become a not child does fill me with extreme cringing. Yes. Yeah. And I think. Totally fucking sold. It I thought she was really good. I'm surprised I thought that she at least was having fun. Okay. Everybody really drudgery. Just like Marley. Yeah. Armed up corpses. Yeah. And like at least like she clearly was having a blast. And it's funny because she has played both Mimi and marine before. She played Mimi at the Hollywood bowl when they did the God. That's right. That's right. Which was her like introduction to rent? Yes. She didn't know what it was bless her. Oh, I definitely I thought she was actually a very high point. And I was I was I don't know what my expectations were. But I was so very pleasantly surprised own. I think no one had any energy which made it really hard, right? Or at least like something wasn't translating from the performance in the arena to like watching it on television. Right. But her she like came clearly excited. Yeah. No. When she liked pulled up on the motorcycle. I was like, okay. Here we go. I'm ready. I'm ready for this. And then she was like, yes, she was like injected it with like a little a little verve. Because again because it was addressed rehearsal. Everyone was like doing their best. But they were also like marking it, and like, no one was really going as full out as I think they could have and that I agree. I thought during via Boheme Boheme via Boheme she was totally totally selling it more than anyone else. What I believe she was having the time for. Life totally via boa was such a felt the energy was off. Well, who is right? But still. I mean, we're not again, we're not talking about the star of this. Which is Mario right? Oh, my. He was good. It was great. And he was really good. Who knew? Yeah. I mean, and I wanted to talk to both of you about like, how your perception of rent has changed as you've gotten older where I know my thing now is like pay your fucking rent. Yes. You know, like, why do you think you don't have to pay round like if I'm paying rent you should pay rent? And that also I was listening to on my flight. And I realized like what when Benny shows up, and he is like I need the rent you owe me for the last year that I've been letting you live rent free in there. Like fuck you. Right. What does he need that one year's worth of rent for? He's got all these investors. Housands dash maybe has a drug problem longside Mimi. Yeah. Or maybe. Yes. As a as a grownup person, you're like, dude, what the fuck you can't you can't expect not to pay rent. What what kind of titled privileged bullshit? Is that you think you can you get to live rent free because you're in artist. I'm also just like these are two like shitty. White transplants. Yeah. Who and Benny is like a young black entrepreneur who's investing in property, which is like area safe and sound investment. He wanted to make a we work, and he was going to give them. Studio, we were is just like he was trying to maintain the authenticity of the neighborhood by allowing these artists top space. So I again pro yes, I on the top. He's rent keeps open the shop. I mean that makes a lot of sense. I mean what you think about it? When you listen to the lyrics, and you think about it at whatever age you are now when you are no longer like sixteen it tracks. Benny Benny stand with Benny than do you really want? Piss on murder. Which is really not. Okay. Also, a thing that I think I missed for the most part as a kid, I didn't miss it. I knew it was present. But I didn't consider it the way I should have is the the content about HIV aids. IS where I think if we're looking at it critically Jonathan laws and actually did not do a great job of handling it and a lot of ways true. But also it does bring it into the conversation again. And weirdly, I like Ryan Murphy actually has a lot to do with. Why people are like thinking about the aids crisis again. Producing a lot of content about it. Right. But like our generation just has no idea. What how devastating was that is true to real. And I don't I don't know if it gets covered in in schools that if if like if you're thirteen if you know about the epidemic that removed a generation of gay men. Yeah. I mean, another thing our friend Robert Ackerman said he was like think about like an entire generation of artists in New York gone. Yeah. Happened. Didn't right? Yeah. I I'm very curious as to as to like if your thirteen in watching rent for the first time like what your context of HIV aids? And the crisis is like a footnote. Yeah. I mean, it's interesting too that the only character who dies is. Okay, man or now. Now, non binary person, you know, the straight couple kind of get to make it to the end. And I know a lot of people have been very critical of that. I mean, I read something. Last week that said on out dot com written by Herron. Walker sort of said that the a lot of rent was taken from Sarah Schulman novel this Sarah Solman, made her case about rent beings stolen, ripped from one of her books in a book called stage struck theater aids the marketing of gay Merika. Let's see she notes. The similarities between the Maureen JoAnne Marquesa plot on the love triangle at the heart of people in trouble to book that she wrote and the climactic art based protests against slum lords and rising rents found in both. So she argues that rent is sort of a mash up of logo of Puccini and her book. This is what she says is like the smoking gun. The smoking gun rights woman is that of the community wide as E T O arm set to people's watches meant to remind people living with HIV to take their meds. The details found in people in trouble. And it's based on a real things Shulman observed that thanks to. Advances in HIV medications were obsolete by the time Larsen was writing the book for rent. So how did it end up in rent? Simple says Salman Watson stole it from people in trouble a book that a mutual friend of both playwrights definitely remembers Larsen talking about while working on rent the end. Yeah. He knew someone else who told him the same anecdote because they too had witnessed people having easy -til arms. Sheriff also like a detail of life. You know, really? They didn't really I mean, I feel like. The putra. Yeah. I wrote a book where woman has an alarm on her phone to take birth control pill, and then that detail showed up in a movie like I don't think you get a case for that. This is merely just presenting a small controversy discovered in my research. I apparently and so hard core that I'm just going to defend. That's okay. Just wanted to. I love to see all both sides of a thing. Yeah. I wanna read her. But also see like it being it influencing. You know, the work. I just seems like that's a little bit different than just like plagiarize. For sure. Yeah. I mean, especially if he was reading source material about the era also true, valid points everyone again just had to present. This j I see. Well, I'm gonna read that book, and I will tell you. I would welcome it. Thank you so much. You're just gonna rip it up. TB continued. Let's so if that raised your hackles, you're going to love this guy. I think friend is maybe bad. That's fine. I'll take it. I love it. I'll take. Yeah. I love it. But I think it's not good now that I've like watching another thing that I've found as an adult is that it. It's very deconstruct that statement like what part is bad. We've just been talking about the things that we love about it. I it is highly problematic. Yeah. May maybe not good. Major source for okay? See I would like to one very much separate. Thinking something's bad and not loving it. Where my whole world is based around low brow things that I had doors is true. It is true. I do love it. And I think a lot of that is wrapped up in a stall. And a lot of it is wrapped up in kind of the schlock Innis of it in a way. I think again like just sort of the themes that don't age very well. Like, it feels like this vary. It feels kind of cartoony at a certain point where it's just. Again, like it does it's not like a very realistic portrayal of it's not angels in America. And it shouldn't be right. But it just I just feel like it has not aged very, well, I think part of that is because we don't understand the the it's crisis as well as people used to write. But also, I think it is just. Like, it's gonna pay your goddamn rent. That's right. And it's it's very of an era. And also, I believe that in earlier draft Maureen and JoAnne also had aids. Which makes you think more of the team America world police like aids aids aids. Yeah, everyone is like, right. Yeah. Uh-huh. Exactly. Okay. I think it's okay that they didn't. I mean, he said alerts and said he wanted to create a musical for the MTV generation it did. And he did he did. I mean, there's a lot of like rock musicals that came before and after, but you know, Jesus Christ leaper star holds up oddly enough. Like, I said, I love it. And now that like, it's I've had a reason to listen to it again, I will be listening to for the next month. Yeah. And I will be singing it constantly Ali better than a lot of people in the show. Cool. Very interesting point about rent fandom and being rent head is like I certainly reached a point in my life where I was like, oh, oh this thing that I love. Me. We isn't the masterpiece. I thought it was when I was younger I s a beautiful realization painful. I mean, that's yeah. I guess getting older up can sucks. Yeah. I mean, I'm I'm glad that you still like hardcore about it. It's also kind of like what like tumbler has done for like weirdos. My God rent kinda was like an early I'm sort of like created. In that year, and like diverse and varied, you know, kind of this place for like these young not necessarily outcast. But like young freaks two young kids aren't freaking enough to like actually be freaky. But who are like to not feel right? Yeah. Yeah. Or even just if you're if you're not even brave enough to waive your free flag at that point. And you hear or see this? And you're like, I'm not the only weird one someday. I'm going to have a tribe full of weirdos just like me, which like definitely happens my chosen family there. They're waiting for me. Yeah. My urban tribe. I will find them all when I get to college and get out of the small town. I do like one last question, which is that so facts you like wanted to be an actor. And you wanted to do musical theatre did you ever audition for rent song? Or did you ever addition for like with song or did you up on dishing for rent? Role. I never did. I cannot saying much to my chagrin and was no straight theater. Oven guard post modern theatre, please. Oh, yeah. But no, I even when I did for musicals I used to do a lot of songs from hair. I don't think I ever wanted to touch rent because it was like, you know, that that bar was set so high that if you came in under it was just like, oh, you were even worse. Hair? Like kind of set the set the ground for rent. Oh, yes. Absolutely. What was your hair song? I used to do air as an addition because it's like, cute and character and you get to cough at the end. And it's like. Have you Maddie? No, I I once to addition for like the special choir middle school is saying song from Joseph in the mazing. Technical wise, not surprise me. I did like the narrators opening like some folk stream of the wonders will do what? I won't do. I won't suffer you through the whole thing. Now, I'm ready. So we can do we do. I won't I won't make back septa worked full day. Well, we would love to have you back shocked about musicals anytime true. Talk about nonmusical things. I would love to come back.

#21 From Baldwin to Bieber

"Yeah. Hey, guys, I'm ever. I'm Julie girls behind comments by celebs. And Julia is back this week. She was out sick last week. If you remember, honestly, I'm just so thankful because I was expecting a bunch of in boxes of people being like, oh, I like that new girl Vetter. Thank you so much for not doing that. But also at the same time. No one in boxing was like we really must you Julie. So it's like a little bit of a fuck. You also said like we hope you feel better people if people wanted like somebody ran out of the woodworks pick my life was distraught. That you're like, it's fine. Whatever my life Astrup. However, I was throw that is what was here. So. Yeah. I mean, if you can't have me exactly who who else. Okay, guys, there is this week where a little less heavy like news news. But there's a lot of Instagram related things and other things to talk about. So let's get I'm just here to talk about trusted. I'm so excited to get to the crash. Don't worry non card gnashing lovers. It's towards the end. Okay. Let's start first things. First this could easily be Instagram story because it was broken Instagram. But it's huge snooky is pregnant with number three. I'm so happy for her to left field. I I didn't know they were trying no idea. Can I tell you what I think, and this is a lot of speculation. I think they had some marital issues that they worked pass now that they were pass it. They're ready to have baby number three. That is very speculatory. However, you could be cracked. I've no idea. I mean, there was there are things in the news that it was like everyone was speculating about it. So it's pulling it out of nowhere. I don't think they were ever like on the risk of divorce, but they could have gone to a rough patch now that they're out of it. They're ready to like, those kids are so cute. They're Docker door that little girls Lorenzo the boat. He is. Yeah. His school pictures every year. Did you see so funny? How like the entire cast has congratulated uncles. We're going to answer ankles. They there I always say all the time. If there's such a family, and it really comes out and one of the big announcement positive or negative negative in in terms of Mike's going to. Positive terms looking they come out of the woodwork and the of it. I totally agree. So congratulations. So we're thrilled for you. Next thing just in Hailey spending. Thanks giving and her birthday together. I just thought it was crazy to see this. Like, we have so much to say, I take turns. Okay. Please don't please don't really house. Yeah. I was so many things to say this is like this is like comfortable. So the thing is is that with Justin Haley recently. It's like. For a while. It was like we were getting our taste of them. But it was just like 'paparazzi shots like seeing. Now, it's like so intimate. I feel like and the shots there. I never thought to fall the other Baldwin's and like bieber's mom, get the information. I was always thought Email it. Yeah. I mean, I've always loved Patty how they what info. But like, I never I never really thought to look there for like just in Hailey things. And then all of a sudden they spent thanksgiving together, and it was like all of the Baldwin family was posting the videos of them in Patty was posting videos of them like kissing and and him shoving the cake interface. It's like so real in so intimate. Like, we do not get that often. Would you knock it that often? I cannot even just with them with like any couple with any Cup. I cannot get enough of this. I really really can't. I'm like, I've never been as invested. I don't think in a celebrity couples. I am them. Listen, of course, Iran jail. There's a lot of different. Also, I will say bieber's back to his old self in terms of he went through a little bit of a dark dark period, you could see it. And now it really feels. Peaceful. He posts that Instagram, and he was like my first my first thanksgiving as a married man, which is so crazy so create just thinking a lot about the fact that like. Justin, bieber's, married. It's that teen. But what I have to say about it in any other world. And listen, I'm sure that there are people that like totally freaked out. Typically when a when a teen pop sensation, which I know he's a little pass up at still when a teen pop sensation gets married. What's throb something typically, the the female audience like riots because they're so upset that he's off the market because they're almost like a rational thing that they can't be with him. But I don't feel that's happening here. I feel like even the diehard fans unless you're hardcore Selena are so thrilled that he's with Haley will I think do you agree with me? I totally grant I think we're really large part of it is because he was in that dark place. And I think that people who really love him and really have been through them through this whole journey. And those are the diehard fans can see that she has a lot to do with being able to pull them out of that. And I think because you can see how happy he is even if there are those times where he's like crying DisneyWorld like we saw whatever it doesn't matter. Like, this is like those are real genuine emotions, and he's on this new relationship. I think people can see. That and appreciate that. And like led video of him whispering to her that you sent me this morning where he's like whatever you want. Like, you're my wife. Okay. There are three videos. You have to talk about number one, which you just said about them at the birthday cake, and that whole thing they're kissing second. Is that video if you haven't seen it we can Senator can post on our story are confined to do it because the account right now. I think the name of the account was was w s and it was a video of him saying to her like, you can do whatever you want your my wife. It is. So sweet W AS. You want your by wife, and but he's holding her stroking her face and like looking like, it's not just like, whatever you want your. It's like he's literally looking interferes so happy that he's married. I think there was a part of the didn't believe he got here. Also the video of them at the hockey game. Yes. Grabs her face kissing her. Oh, guys, I know of you listening. They're equally as invested in. This are equally as excited about it. As we are. I know you are because we got sent so many times, and I just want you to know we felt the same thing you felt something. That's really interesting also that I wanted to bring up was her fascination with him with having his last name. So it's. It's just the Instagram change. Like, she's he got her that necklace. It says Bieber on it at the hockey game. They were wearing jerseys and has says Mr. burn her says mrS Bieber, I think just so fast. I think she's so obsessed with the fact that like she's MRs Bieber, and why wouldn't you be that was my lesson? Holy fuck. And it's like I said before she's coming from Baldwin. So like, it's amaz-. It's just all my God. I Baldwin to beaver would be amazing documentary book, title anything. Okay. Well when she saying. Yeah. But I think we just set it on on air. So if it's us, we don't get credit. Yeah. Okay. Well, if I honestly I'm fine. Like, whatever you want our happy. I don't even care. Anything else? Yes. So anyway that video we freaked out. Literally, Jillian, I watch it ten million times we sent in just couldn't stop. Oh, they're just. So much sexual chemistry. I'm telling you, they have the most epic sex life ever that he would with anyone that she would with anyone and especially him in his rhythm. And holy okay. Let's move on. Well, just on this quickly Nick and Priyanka getting married an Indian palace December. I hear that. I read it in an article they spent thanksgiving together in India, which is you saw this lavish table, the really the real story. Here is just that. It's a continuation of that blending of the families, and he is really all in. And I think it's amazing, and let's just wanna see the wedding. That's all I really care about the wedding. I wanna know I wanna see more videos of them together that aren't staged kind of like what you were saying. Yes with Justin Haley because I think that they have dynamic. That's very interesting. Yes. Good about interesting more like a very different than just in Haley. But I would love to see what they're like they're very posing very calculated which is like both of their look like she is like this gorgeous. And I get it. But I would love to see them just at home in hand Saint to do you think that? Bell on the weekend are gonna get engaged soon. This is one did you put an I didn't put on here. But it just pops into my head. I don't know. I there's a part of me that thinks. Yes. Because that's what everybody seems to be doing. But at the same time, I think no because they're both such or she seems to be such a free spirit and not want to. I don't know. I will say we should really talk with the scrim section. But we're here. There was a video of them that complex posted in a lot of people. Where they were there and and Dubai right now where were they at a concert or club or saw? Yeah. And they were just like they weren't making up. They were very close. Look each other. As is singing, and it was a lot of chemistry. Yeah. They're into. I think they're one even if they don't get engaged soon. I think they're one for the long haul. I think it's very possible that if I was listening to us like I would think that I personally was ridiculous. I have faith in way, too, many couples for celebrity couples who no one last like no celebrity couples like in it for the long haul truly it's like very rarely except for Kelly Mark, and like a few oddballs here, and there I like have too much faith in everybody. Which is so unlike we have we have forgotten hailing Justin pulling a notebook like in our minds there forever. I know. I can't I can't my head around anything else. But like it's like why I've been so busy. I know. But I'm not. But maybe I'm rubbing off. Maybe. Yeah. Also, the lying preview came out this week. We posted a hilarious comedy under. If you guys saw it is obviously CGI and someone comes like, wow. I can't we train the animals. They were not being sarcastic. I think there's no. Really? I know that you're out. Don't even get me started on the drafts. Like, so hard to something that I've been thinking about ever since this was announced is that beyond say is going to sink. Can you feel the love tonight? That's insane. I can't I can't shopping about it. And what's so crazy for me is when like people's have like their kids grow up with them being the voice of their favorite movie care like who is going to grow up in her mom's going to be Nala. It's like Kristen bell with exactly with frozen. Good reference. When we right. I'm seeing number five here really made this outline with without me. Full disclosure, typically the way it works as either we each individually do and then send it to do together in a Google doc or intern does it, but this I'm she did it full blown it. I haven't looked at it until right now. Number five OJ spent the holidays in Florida with his kids, if you know, Julie, this is the most Julie story ever that I would never put on here. But congratulations, you made OJ maters. Basically what what happened? Here was kind of like when you're at the supermarket with your mom, and you like meat candy like those fucking intimate doughnuts end before she can notice and take them out. And it's like. By the time. She's like undoing the groceries at the house, and unpacking. She's like what the fuck is this. And it's like she didn't even notice that feel slipping J into this. But don't you think it's crazy? He got special permission to leave Nevada to spend holidays with his kids. And the fact that is kids wanna spend the holidays with him. Don't don't think that I read the Daily Mail article. I was all up in it. Because I said to my dad were in the car, and I turn I was like, wait. This is crazy. Don't his kids not want anything to do with him because he most likely killed their mother. And my dad was like, you know, what I don't know. It's it's so crazy. There's two options here one there's really only two options with this one the genuinely believe him that he didn't do just like. Camman guys on. I knew DNA evidence was new at the time. But like we're in it. Now, we know what that means. Now, imagine the glove didn't fit like oh my God. Or there? They've moved past it, those are the only two options. It's like I can't wrap. My exactly well, I guess it's just an incentive if you love to I know their names. I know I took my surprise just an inhaler. And then I'm like, no kids Justice. And of course, you okay? Let's move into our Instagram section a lot of things happened. But I don't think we have that many written down. But let's talk that it. So first things first Arianna granola has straight up broken the internet every single day with the whole height for her. Thank you next video as you guys know what it seems to be from us from an onlooker is that it's going to be a mash up between mean girls bring it on. There's going. One other lavar legally blonde, which are like the foremost iconic like for it was so funny. I was saying this is my cousin who's thirty nine. And I was like, yeah. Like, she's doing the most iconic videos, and she was like the conic movies. And she was like, that's what's considered conic kind of two thousand. I said it was like listen is it, you know, your frigging silence of the lambs. No. But it's an iconic. Right. All of those those are all I'm sorry. Like, those are amazing movies like she's not going to do a music video based on Shawshank CASA Blanca and have you ever tried to sit through 'cause of Lanka 'cause info Blake. She has done. An who scooter? Yes, scooter as we like radio, but also whoever the marketing team, whatever you guys are unfunny believable as I say that is that they're listening. But no, really they're they're incredible. Because whether or not you like Arianna, don't like are, you can appreciate her towns and artists and her like, even if you don't like it, you're still curious because they've been teasing it so much something I've always said that I really respect are really like about her as a person is that like. When she does something like this. She makes it clear to you as a fan that she's doing this for you like again, if you look at her Twitter presence like people will tweet at her and she response them like they're lifelong friends like so like, I can't believe you're doing this. And she's like says like you're gonna love this. She it's random fan. She doesn't know. But every single thing she does she makes it so clear that like this is for her fans like she is putting this out on a platform for you for us totally and also all of the people that kind of like made appearances Jonathan Bennett who earns Aaron Samuels, and all these other people Sebescen this happened to them in a really long time being an I mean, anyone even if you're the most famous person being Arianna grinds music video it was a big deal. But I think also it's really cool that she's kind of incorporating these people that maybe they needed a boost in there. I don't know if they did. I'm just saying which goes into the conversation that we always talk about about actors who have had like one or two like bowls in like a really iconic movie like like a high school musical Leica, like legally blonde like a. A like a mean girls where they really cling to that role because that was their stardom have anything else. Trout, parent trap. What's her face Mullane hundred Elaine, four, Elaine for animal or animals on? It's like she. I mean, we notice it a lot more than other people because we can constantly see that like Aaron Samuels is like I was Jonathan Bennett is constantly commented on things and making references to mean girls. Paul Johannesen from Nepal. Joe Hinson Paul far had from high school musical guard. Johnson Johnson Paul Johnson's from one trail Johnson whose constantly calms Zack FRANZ thing as like his dad figure quote on quote from the movie like they really cling to these roles and Jim. Oh, I don't buy them. I think that we see it a lot more than other. When we would if we talked about that Tilly average person they would be like really never noticed. It's us because we're literally we live in the comments section. So we see that more than anybody. It's so nice to the people who don't rise when they. Staal jet comment for them. He's actually so funny. Like when you and I when Julian I I didn't know if I want to talk to your doctor, Julian decide, whether or not we're gonna post something, and if it's something like very, you know, related to parents, or whatever sometimes say is it too much like it's going to be annoying. And we always have to remind ourselves most of the time it's not annoying to other people because they don't see it as frequent with the parents because you're going to get to distract if that's residual do. Yeah. Don't look at it. I want to look at it after. I think what the parent trap with Elaine people are starting to you. Put him on notice back right now. Okay. Mom. That's one. Okay. Let's move on. Can I enjoy it? You onto are we going to put on the one that I put on for you the Chris Brown. Yeah. Yeah. Can I can I guess claim what he's so riana has been posting a series of very very sexy. Beautiful pictures on scrimp, she as rata, and she's Ana and because personally, I think she's potentially the most beautiful woman in Hollywood. And she's just like yourself in interest beautiful anyway, she posts picture in lingerie and Chris rock Chris Brown. Comments an emoji like oh my God emoji. And of course, we got a sentence a million times the in posted it gets gets picked up everywhere. We made a deal early on. We will not post Chris Brown comments. I won't. I I like genuine delays me won't even I hate Chris Brown. I genuinely remember how he said last what you've got you in his belt last like the one celebrity that is an off limits for me, not like Taylor swift. And that's fine. But that's a harmless like, I just don't like our survey. This is a genuine hatred towards Chris Brown, and how fucked opposite to comment on honest pictures Lee for a loan. And I don't know how we ought to feel sheet for for on Oshii may not care. And may not just like think about it. It's like where. But it's like fuck you state like what is the purpose of doing that? I have no idea. I don't know. What goes on behind the scenes? I don't know if they talk. I don't know if what his deal is. But just just to make it clear to everyone like we recognize that that's huge news. And we also recognize that we have no desire to give him a platform. Listen, he's way bigger than us. He does not need us. So like why showcase him when we feel certain way about his actions. Right. Fuck him. Like, it's not like we just don't like him. Because whatever. No, we're genuinely very strongly abused varies only so very strongly against any form of domestic abuse. And especially when you've abused somebody and then are commenting on there. It was just like you Chris Brown at another picture. It wasn't round as I still wouldn't wanna post it. I'm like, I don't have any interest in in his comments being put out there. My friends used to pre-game to freaky Friday that song that he's in with a little Dicky. And I was like fuck you as for playing this like seriously, I know. I do like this. No, no. But that's differently playing it in your room alone versus putting on a platform to almost a million people. When like we just don't want to give them that kind of publicity again. I'm not being conceded here. He does not need. I recognize that I'm just saying like choice. Why would we he needs Jesus something? And it's not about us. People ask us a lot. What comment would like would you not post? And that is the perfect example. That is I would not post a crisper like that is a juicy Chris Brown commenting on around his thing for anybody else. It's like, oh my God. That's so crazy for us. It's like, no. I wouldn't I wouldn't see yesterday air companies. We'd impose either remember yet. How was weird? Okay. Let's talk about let's we're gonna. Do you feel solidified on the screen? As long as as long as I auto. I'm loving today. Like, I'm so I have so many so many things I like a passionate opinion, I feel so excited and just like happy, and I don't know this great day. Yeah. I hope that the energy can be fell. Can you feel how happy to be here? If you can't just let us I can let's transition out to our award ceremony. This is going to crown the funniest comment and the best clapback of the week. And one what happened which I'm realizing right now, not your phone at all the John that we posted just happened after we made the outline. So I think that we should replace that with the Jimmy Kimmel one. Yeah. Okay. So there are three nominees here. Four funniest all of which I think are equally as excellent. So the first Arianna Guerande posted a picture teasing her. Thank you next video. And it was a tribute to legally blonde in the caption was whoever said orange was the new pink seriously disturbed and Reese comments also to go. I saw camera Di as Fred Segal and talk out of buying a truly heinous angora sweater icon. Ick line Reese commenting, Arianna. Come the fuck on. It's amazing. We hosted the tweet I because we didn't the common came after. And then we were like, wow. I really wish we got the comet which we did. But it just didn't matter either. It's that was like, I don't know. It upsets me when that happens because it's like if it is an Instagram for him. I would rather have an Instagram form. But the tweeted well, the message gets across it message. It's okay. Do you agree that we should John? You know, honestly, John had a good week shocker comes out too. So the one that we had on the list was Jimmy Kimmel post picture of topics bring up on thanksgiving non-political, and it was a long list of different things. John comments for added fun read this listed tune. If we didn't start the fire. Larry's and also we have a lot of friends and also a lot of fun, and it just like fun, the one that we were saying we should have done a video thing and had people send us video of them. Singing that list to we didn't start the fire. We still could or I would love that. That's funny. The one that we didn't on the list. But I say was so Halsey posted a picture of her with a tar, she writes. This is your brain on writer's. Block everything I read row today. Sounds like my space song in two thousand eight or poorly, disguised Beatles. Rip off someone sent help. And John Collins, I can be over to break, your heart and twenty question, Mark icon IQ. So I so just so John so funny like just good job. I love when celebrities are that witty and funny and humorous and makes me so happy 'cause I'm like, yes. Right. Like, this is why we do. Thanks for making our job, so joyful. Okay. So the last one is Billy Eichner posted the trailer for Lankan we talked about this already. But someone did not realize that it was CJ. How did they train the animals so amazing? And he goes, I have spent months working with these dress a headache. Honestly that one made me laugh. It's so good because you can read it in his voice. Yeah. Who do you think wins genuine? I wanna give John a double win is that? Okay. Suppose comments. Sure. Well, I think that we should I give Reese as we did last week or two go not funniest, but congratulations Reese Witherspoon, I think he won the most iconic comment of the week right apps. Carry the most pop culture, wait. Yeah. Is that true? Was just like amazing right saying that same nostalgic feeling. Yeah. Exactly. But in terms of funniest, yeah. Jar we going with Jon, okay? So congratulations on air. You are the double recipient of this week's funnies comment. Excellent. Excellent work it up. Yes. To add. No, that's pretty much pretty much. How it goes every week? Okay. Now, let's move onto best of the week. This was oh you vote to you too often. I was gonna say it's not even a competition. I gave two options, but I don't like the second because I genuinely don't get it. So let's just read the first. Yeah. The second is that pink one that we did which I get like, do you get it like, what is the correlation? But she was saying swimming and running into traffic. I all you didn't. I know. I got really lazy. Yeah. She's asking me, what isn't the picture of the common? Basically what happened was? Pink posted this. I don't know what we have. We don't talk about. And that we are. Okay. Ping posted this picture of her kid in the water. And like he looked unhappy and she wrote like tough love lessons, but he likes it or whatever and someone comets like, no, you have to be gentle with children, basically saying that like that attitude of you don't wanna swim. But I'm making you anyway, isn't the way to parent. That's what this person was saying, and she writes in and you have to be gentle response, especially when they're running into traffic like really that's how I always have to be gentle, even when I kids running into traffic not like grabbing it and being like the fuck back here. I don't like it either. Anyway, I I still explained it to me. I get it. But I don't I don't understand the correlation between the two move onto. So at least Renna posts on captions picture. It's picture of her. And she rose. Hi, take this photo in when you go for my kind of care cut because it's a known thing among everyone that a lot of middle aged women bring in Lisa's picture and someone comments this is a little bit. You're not that great. Spelled it V. I N. It's yours phones. It's vein Christie not being. Something we both love like the easiest way to win. Best clapback is to just incorporate their name into the back. Yeah. I don't know why. But it just does it for me because it makes it more personal. Yeah. Pamela this round ups. I guess a lot. Okay. Congratulations. Lisa in it. You are the recipient for this week's best clapback of the week and every week because you're so icon ick. Great job. I think everybody would agree with that one. Totally. Already time for I've it's so he sites. Right now, we're going to trace this Kardashian recap. This is the part of the episode of we talk about all things Kardashian and for those of you unadjusted feel free to fast forward. But for those of you interested buckle up because ladies and gentlemen, I have so excited. I just wanna quickly before we get into it into it. Just talk about quickly. I don't wanna give the soda recap because I just wanna really zone in on trust in. But I do wanna talk about the part in the episode last night where Kim said she was on ecstasy. No. We actually have to talk about obviously. But I want to say that I want to get out of the way. I it's okay. So let's intimate. So last episode. I episode starts out strong. Like, you know, sometimes they give you some bullshit. This episode start out right away. I got into the tristen blocking Kim again, not talking at right now getting into in a minute. And then it transitioned to. Chem Scott and KENDALL were sitting at their kitchen table talking about just like Kim being a wild child when she was younger, and she was like, yeah. I was I was wild. When I was crazy. And I was like, I just can't see it. Because if you watched the show, you know that as we've known Ken, she's not to drink of the family like getting her to go out as a whole ordeal kind of like us. So she was saying she was like, no, I was I was wild back in my day. Like, I was like, yeah. There was a story about you going to DisneyWorld or six flags, and you are high and I expect. Yeah. Used to smoke weed all the time. She was like, oh my God. Yeah. When I was on Xia cabinet ecstasy, like mom, Kintu ecstasies. He'll and I was actually the first time I got married like the time. She got married in Vegas. And then he was like the second time I made a sex tape. Also, first of all the way, she said, it was okay. I made us X day not the sex tape like the sex. That's smarts million errors like. The funniest part about this is that Julie was watching the episode and so's is about an I wasn't and we were on separate places. So at the exact same time, I got a text from them with what the it was. So crazy. She's like she's like, she's like you get and you can see like in the tape like my job's moving back and forth. Curate it was moving back and forth. Like, I was removed. Definitely wasn't. We thought it was just locked. I thought. I thought you were just readjusted. That was wild for which tells the whole story about going to a Paris Hilton that was content. The you know, what's crazy that this episode featured tristen scandal and still the best part about it was Kim's exit. You know, something can I tell you? I feel like like Kim purposely did that cause she want? She knew what she her. She knew this episode is going to be trysted dominated. So she wanted to throw in a fucking wrench to that. All of the articles are going to be about one of them. And not one of them was about tristen and. Tristen and Cam trista. It was like Kim does ecstasy first anytime Kim talks about her sex tape, this many years later like that is I comic that is like a thing that's gonna make headlines. Yeah. You're right. She's one calculated. Okay. So now moving on, which by the way, anybody who was watching. I'm sure you're draws dropped. Because she casually dropped you don't expect to get the juicy nece from Kardashians. You expect to get land. Yeah. That was I mean, she knows what she's doing. Obviously it was. So it's like she knew ahead of time. She knew this was gonna come out. You knew was a slow week for her like the cyber was slowing down. So she was like, yeah. What we saw. You know, we saw those fucking wrench in the mix has never in. Correct me if I'm wrong, these that could be and she could've mentioned it episode. Just like I have never heard her talk about openly about doing drugs before. Now. They're my hurt her. I mean, yeah. I was like I was so I love it. No. Yeah. We not. Never heard heard discuss that that aspect of her life. Totally. Okay. Should we move into other? Oh. Talk about the Tristan part of the code. Yes. The entire episode is going to spark the whole trust in discussion. So yes, let's just get into it. And then we'll get into the rest of the things that haven't crashing world. Basically this week on the road. We saw that Kim is notably. And obviously, very pissed actress and understand understandably and they're trying to mend through its first. They're not really talking then it goes through the whole him blocking her thing. But she goes close house, and they try to have the men's they have is conversation about pickle ball, which was ridiculous. But it was a conversation and something that we would like to talk about is Tristian. I have literally so many things say first of all that was a month after two months after I was trying to gauge based on the way true was holding up her head how long after it was. And when they moved back to LA, which is where I was as if nothing happened as if Kim was the crazy one for being mad at Tristan like first of all in that scenario, if I was this is what I don't understand tristen. Locks Kim, right? If I was tristen, and I had cheated on my girlfriend before she gave birth, and I was trying so hard to get back on the good side. Good side of the family. You know, once you lose the support of the family, like, it's it's it's a much harder battle. And when you have that support in your back pocket. It's easier to get them on board. Whatever if I was Tristan. I would literally be like, okay. She talked about Allen. She said let me I'm gonna play cool, and I'm going to be the bigger pipe pissed them off more with something like that why you are not in the right in any scenario here and for Chloe to be like yet so uncomfortable like like close to the said unlock my sister. This is fucked up you fucked up they're allowed to act how they want and you need to go along with because you did something wrong and close just like my boyfriend might sister hate each other. As we I. Yes, everything you just said, yes continually I think every single week. We are at the same time amazed also upset by chloe's tolerance. It's like on one hand y-, y you are amazing that you're putting your kid. I. That you are. So like almost selfless it comes across. But then it's like this selfless. Got you into this situation. Like, she such an I I love her so much to see her defend him in any. Right. Not that she wasn't supporting him. I don't mean to make it sound like that. 'cause it wasn't like she was mad. I don't didn't know it. I just know. She wasn't. I just wanted her to like I want her to take him side fully instead of being Switzerland. And like I wanted her to understand and be like a thankful that Kim was so like protective of her and her feelings, it wasn't like Kim was saying like it's so pretty that blocked from only mad because you know, she was mad about the situation. And that came as an after thing, my feelings on Chloe and her protecting trust in our a couple of things first of all when there was a really big break between the cheating, and when she started posting on social media again. And we didn't know what they were like during that time. So I think in the back of our minds we had kinda just hope that it was just like this awkward uncomfortable situation. And they weren't speaking that they were. Working on it. And like she was so mad at him. And like now, we're seeing that's not the case. At least the way they're making it look on camera. That's not the case, she was incredibly forgiving, in my opinion. And I think she what she does with true is very admirable because she's like she said it and she was like, it's not her fault. She doesn't deserve deserves to have time with both of her. Parents what I think it actually is is that khloe is kind of using her as an excuse to be able to say like because she wanted to stay with trust in. She's able to blame it on the baby almost and she can say I have to get along with him. It's for true sake. Whereas if she wasn't true in the picture, and she would just hang him that people give her so much like why are you putting up with us? She's able to like put baby almost not in a bad way. Put the baby in the middle and be like I have to take. I think a lot of it is is self motivating. And she just wanted to be with him. And she's able to do that the other thing is that like your offset sheet on Cardi, and she was like what I'm just supposed to start over again. I think to annex. That's how Chloe feels. It's like, I think she expects that no matter. What happens? She's going to end up in a situation where she gets hurt again. And it's like, well, I'm already her. Now, why get hurt again and start over a kid way. Like, a why not just let the person hurt me? Hurt me now. And maybe he could move forward if he's trying so hard to get me back and you want to stay with me. Why not just stay with him? Instead of like, I think she expected of okay, I'm gonna get out of the relation of trust. And start a new on it, and I'm gonna end up heartbroken again. Very interesting points. I was I wish you guys could have seen not yet really listening. I was really in depth. I felt like I was really I mean, especially because I missed last. I'm listening to everything you're saying I. I think that's all very possible. Especially the thing about true is interesting because I think one hundred percent in her mind, and it's true chloe's and amazing mother. And like, she definitely is putting the kid, and I don't even think in her mind, it's a conscious thing that she's putting the it's it's totally on a subconscious level. If that's happening if she really is doing 'cause I and the and true is like a this is what it is. If true is a reason that the public can get behind the public enter family can get behind. It's possible that subconsciously she's using that as as more writing. But she does really care. I see it. I don't I don't know. And in terms of the Cardi thing, you know, I forgot offset cheated on her until you just said it. So like what does that show? Right. But it's right. Because it's because it's offset Cardi that they're kind of held to a different standard. Where people are so fascinated by them. And it's like whatever the fuck they want like when offset sheets Cardi. It's like oh, fuck not like a heartbroken when Chris treated on khloe. That was like, I'm not kidding one of the. Worst pains. I've personally felt because I just so deeply felt for her. And it just hurt the I agree. The reason I think not like hell to different center. But the reason the people expect if is because as as followers as fans, the only thing, we know these celebrities aside from like what we read is what they post and the image that khloe up until the cheating, and even now we showed with Tristan is like this deep love like she's never felt Cardi. But I'm saying, where's cards more? Like I wanna fuck like everybody. Also, we've been on this. We haven't been on an emotional journey with Cardi she came into our lives, and we love her. And we are God. Thank you for bringing us Cardi with Chloe like we have been there with her through it all and it's heartbreaking for us to watch her keep getting heartbroken. I totally agree. And the other thing with them is in light of them just probably moving onto next topic spending thanksgiving together, she is going to have to defend and I texted you every single decision. She makes him and at a certain point to me, that's exhausting. If she wants to spend thanksgiving with her boyfriend. She shouldn't have to put out a statement being like tristen had a game. He couldn't fly out to LA. I decide to spend the holiday with her daughter could be with her father on on thanksgiving. It's so that's exhausting. If they get pregnant, again, everything is like in light of the cheetah khloe interest in spend thanksgiving, everything everything that they're seventy years old. And in light of you know, what I mean, it's and it's exhausting. It is exhausting. I completely agree with you. And that was a seamless transition of interesting point. That I also was thinking was closer. I know because I thought of this earlier today, and I think it's also such a good point. There's the possibility that khloe not the popular khloe loves true more than anything in the whole world. And just wants her father that there's a possibility I think that khloe thinks they broke up that trust and wouldn't be as attentive as a father as he has because they're together based on his previous based on his previous track record that she's could possibly thank you know, if we end this. He's never gonna see her. He's not gonna put in the effort. I want him to and I want my daughter to have her father. Yeah. Pay. That's totally totally there. I literally just feel like I've learned so many things loveless Saint you talk like that. What was the her sweating thanksgiving in Cleveland, the rest of the thanksgiving looked amazing khloe? I mean, Courtney denied it pregnancy. Remember, which we didn't post that as a solo because it just wasn't worth it. But a lot of anyway, and all you have to do to get a new story about you is denied that you're pregnant picks up every single time even on people that people think was pregnant anyone. Think were pregnant knowing get an eighties. Oh, let's okay. Okay. Should we talk about them in terms of social media because I kind of want to? Yeah. So this Kim posted a video of north doing her makeup, and it was long kind of saga of her starting and her working really hard north working really hard and came to perfect it. And there was this one part where Kim moved and it fucked up nor nor strong. I'm sorry. We've heard so much. Let's not say anything. That's everyone moves past that. I don't know. Maybe they didn't we first of all that's hilarious that you said that you were like we've crossed too much like as if there was a quota. And as soon if we stopped at twenty five us or like FOX, and like everything would be kosher. You don't wanna PG thirteen movie your allotted to say the word fuck one single time. That's how I could still get that PG thirteen raiding. Don't we're getting me. That's so funny. And and and she messes up and has a fit she's on the floor. Screwing Julie tax me. And she's like, she is she has many everything she does Connie and the difference between her and is so funny because I feel like I know their personality. So well, tell me have you been Saint is this can always describes him Saint is the sweetest most loving attentive like baby in the world like he just wants to tell you. He loves you and cuddle with you north is Connie look at her on, and it's fucking over for you for you. It's amazing crazy the way personalities like I mean, obviously, understand DNA whatever. But it's it's still crazy. The way your personality gets passed on. No. It's so true. And also just like eight I think that we all love those types of videos because it shows those pretty raw. I mean, no matter how quote, polished you to say the credentials are calculated. You can't control a child like that was found watch him parenting. Where like there's like two things that you could have done that situation. Where like I think a lot of. People would have expected him to be like, no Northey. It's okay. Like, relax. It's okay. But we do it like she was like north get over which is like still funny to seek. That's how I would have had get over it. She's like, okay. I think we can relax. I think we I think let's focus focus yet. As amazing. Also like what you're doing your mom's makeup, and it's like a big deal for her. It's like, no nothing. She could ever do. She's had to compete with Mary. Oh, forget about it. Right north. I'm sorry. You no matter. How good you are. There's no shot. Also, kendall. Posting a picture with the caption joking about being the only one without kids. Yeah. All I can think about is Kendall's David videos. Those like we look, you know, what it is. It's the exact same Leith Hayes affect we're like oh, Jesse thumbs boyfriend who's actor. It's like, oh, you mean David over red KENDALL? Like, I've heard of that is the only way I see your David Dover express. David exe rent that THEO? I actually wanted to do this on the last one I forgot warning. This next minute is gonna only apply to people who watch the vox. If you don't you're gonna have no idea what we're talking about. But I just need to go into for a second. That was like that that what do you call? It an episode that Wagner slug best thing ever. And the fact that now they have this friendship, and they could potentially be creating more content that we are not even aware it makes her so much more likable like it isn't not everyday that somebody like, we'll listen, we're not crazy. We know that there is a very big difference between the cower that KENDALL is and David dope. Burqas and for her to come down, essentially and vegetated air quotes there Airfoil fully air quotes. Because I mean, we think of David is very high. We think of a very fine. But a lot of people wouldn't end for somebody who's a Kardashian to message some YouTube or and be like, let's let's hang out that's craz- at it makes me so likeable and so much more normal. No, I could not agree more that episode was everything I've ever wanted. I couldn't I couldn't have dreamt up. I you want sing when we talk about our dream celebrity. I never even mentioned that because I thought it was so far fetched. I didn't know first of all Kindel isn't exactly like losing a fun personality, which maybe. She is now and I'm getting on board with it. But it's not like something. Like when I think KENDALL my first name like association isn't the word fun. No. But she strove that side of her which is so cool to see so cool to see seeing was so happy Zayd was I've why wouldn't be take off your blindfold standing in your still sitting and you haven't already too, but you don't log and your confused watch it go to David Dover on news room saying by saying it was one of the log members birthdays. And they surprised him with KENDALL Jenner. They like had her show, but the house the backstory's at Kendal just randomly message. David over this YouTube or on Instagram, and it was like we love you guys. Can we be friends and he had to pull over the car that which was not staged? I don't think and was like holy fuck. So that happened at the F Oregon, anyway, amazing check it out, even if you don't log it's it was so good. It was so cool. And I just love them so much, okay. Lastly, according to being pregnant, oh the conspiracy theory. Let's talk about it. So Courtney post this picture of her and the kids and Scott, and of course, immediately. Our first instinct is is there conspiracy theory that they're going to have another kid together not necessarily gonna get back together. Can I bring I'm not praying? It's interesting because I've always been and if you've listened clearly my view on this has evolved from the first podcast because I've been so like, I don't want them to get back together. I think they're toxic together by I don't know. Now, I think they're both growing. And maybe if they got back together just ruined all the progress. They've made but there's just a small part of me, not even that. I wanted just that. I I do think it's possible. I completely agree that as possible. I also someone message or something really interesting here at who wasn't. I'm sorry that I'm not crediting you. But they were like wait you guys the meeting that they had Sophia last week was about. Like Scott having a kid contracting setting up contract, which do I think it was Nobis. I don't think Scofield would be. I don't know. But I love conspiracy theories. Let's talk about it. I mean, maybe who knows Dow would be stranger things have happened. Strange things have happened. It's not like it's coming out of nowhere on somebody. Just thought of this like, yeah, Koreans have made it very clear that if they were gonna have another kid they'd wanna do it together? And who knows I wonder how so feel would feel I don't know. Do you think that they could have another kid together and remain completely onyx atomic? It. I don't know. I actually don't think that I think that could be the thing that got him back to the league do a platonic friends because they won't have another kid was. But it just like the emotion of having a baby together would be what brings them back together they have to have sex. They do some nation seven-nation. Do you think that claiming that cut up sex Courtney Lee is really against the seven for some vegan good for some health reasons, even vegan. Protein when other lobbying congress fast for the health part? But I wanted to say something that I just forgot as I was saying it, oh, do you think member like Scott one to be back with her so-so valley? Do you think he still wants that? Or do you think he's genuinely societas and could see a future with Sylvia? I just putting obscures. No. I mean, I don't know. I think that there's always going to be a part of Scott that feel so that's his family at the end of the day. Like, he's never he's never going to have the same relationship with the Ritchie's as he does with the Kardashians. Because Chris was there for him through everything we were talking about last night. A lot of people have been like, oh, really pulled him out of this. Like, she. No, it was Chris if Kristen stick by his side every single Cup who knows where he'd be. Now he needed that. He needed that parent figuring out because he doesn't have it anymore. And I think that there's such a strong connection to that family that there is the possibility that if Courtney was like, Scott, let's. Try and make this work. I want my kids to grow up with us together as a family like where both old enough. Now. Maybe it's ten years down the road. Who knows? But I think he feels such a strong connection. He sees their hit he's corny siblings his siblings. He's he's would make other. He's protective over them. He loves Chris, and it would make things so easy. But also it's like there's that support system that he doesn't have to fight to allow on his life anymore. Like, it's still an issue when every so often when Chris's with sky or when the kids hang out, Scott alone. Because you know, there's got to be that uncomfortable in this four corny end for so FIA like I could imagine that. So FIU doesn't feel amazing about the fact that he spends all his time with his ex girlfriend's the mother of his child family at every moment. So who knows maybe so feel could decide I just can't handle this anymore who she's young. That's what we young because she doesn't seem it. She really does. She doesn't. But big fan of hers. I don't know. I don't know about him. Is that TVD right? We'll just have to wait and see what happens. Let's move on. Now to something that we haven't done awhile. But we got this Email. I wanna shout this off. Yeah. She's so sweet. So we got this got an Email from discworld. Her name is Brian. And she emailed us an all capitals. And was like, oh my God. I am the follower Vegas fan. And I feel strongly about this that I have to Email you guys, and she basically the idea for a game, which it's funny because it's something that we had talked about like, very recently. And then she showed us, and I was like, hey, we have to do it. And she was basically saying could you imagine one your dream table at we talked about it as I think we talked. We talked about it as wedding lineup like groomsmen and bridesmaids for hailing Justin's wedding. She talked about that. And also the dream table for purposes of this episode because I don't think we can do both. I think that we should talk about just we haven't discussed this at all Pires kind of on the spot. But let's talk about what we think the vital party. May look like if I know as you, listen, you know, Julie does not believe that they're gonna have the big wedding for further down. She writes at for purposes of this just. Just pretend hypothetical. That's I can do that as long as that will also I just want to let me just say if he's about this girl. We get a lot of DM's, and I read them all or really try to really good about really try. We can't respond to all of them are open all them. Because once you open, you really have to respond, and it would be it would be doing more of a disservice because we couldn't keep up with it. And I would never wanna come across. If we're not engaging with the people that are that are reaching out to us. It was crazy crazy fan. But we do get a lot of really nice inboxes. And this Email is just so nice because it was someone. So Julian I always say to each other like is it just us and his Bill that are this invested in the stuff. And it's like, no, there's a whole world of people that are and to find that connection is just awesome. So thank you brand for that suggestion for being so loyal in you're being so sweet. And I that made us so happy. And so I know what made you so that we respond, but it made us so happy that you message us that so hundred really really really nice. Thank you. But that's beautifully things. And also to anyone just like a reminder, if you ever see common we have to say this. I wanna keep going. If you ever see a comment that you're not sure if we've seen yet or you don't. If you should just send the post just no we're not gonna win. The message just send it because we survive partially on your guys GM's. And even if you're not sure just send it with sourcing. It takes two seconds. Don't scream I don't get into that. Just send the post will know, we're leading for most likely we already have it. But it can never hurt. And continue to reach out. Also, I feel like we should say this this point. We've never said it before because we hate self promoting if you notice we we ever has the podcast at most three times a week tops. Whereas most of the people that have pockets, they're smart about it. They do it like everyday because that's what you have to do. We never do we always. Anyway, can you if you're into it? Right. A nicer view. Something we're supposed to ask that everybody asked. We never have we're so we hate being like that. But if you're into it, and like, you genuinely like it would be really nice to write a positive vs. It helps us very fair to say check them all the time. You do. Yeah. Check it a lot. Well, especially because I wanted to make sure nobody was like as great eventually come back. Well, the beginning. I was too quiet. But I think I've gotten better. Yeah. I definitely have gone definitely got about guys give have to give credit in the beginning. Guys. Like, you can't hear people still comment that you whisper. I know I'm much better. But you're much better. Yeah. Anyway, I was just going to say it's like a lot in a partially my fault too because I speak so loudly. That's kind of we worked on it. So Friedemann bridesmaids slash groomsmen for hailing beaver sweating. Let's just talk about it quickly. Also, a lot of people were wondering if Helen KENDALL had a falling out. I think that was because KENDALL didn't post anything. I don't think they did. I think she just didn't story. I read something interesting somebody at us about this. And I just wanted to look into it. There's no evidence that there was like an actual output back in may. There was a bunch of articles about how like Kendall's jealous of the relationship that Haley and Kylie have. And I have noticed that Hayley has been commenting on highly pictures a lot and not as many Kendall's interesting. Who knows that? That's interesting to you. Okay. So listen in this event that Bieber inhale you're going to have this giant wedding. Let's get into who we think is going to be. We're not gonna cover them all some key players. Assuming KENDALL Hellier you're fine. I'm gonna put candles as bridesmaid, obviously, also Ireland Baldwin, obviously. Just you know enough that side, do, you know enough to pick a maid of honor because I can pick a best man for Justin. I think scooter Jaden Jaden Smith, that's his brother. He loves Jada. You think more? Yes scooter. Yeah. Scooters like his dad, I think scooter would probably be in the party. But I think that like Justin would want his brother to be as his if you look at ninety just the comments just the way they've always spoken about each other like Justin, and they call each other like brothers like I love you, brother. You're my brother. I totally see, you know, who else would be this would be one that would be both on the on the groom's side carlin's that pastor on the bright side Lawrence. His wife would be in in Haley's party. Don't you think they would just marry them? Yeah. Sorry. But if they weren't they'd be the party. But yes, you're right. I just assume Christiana Mary's all wedding. So I forgot that like other people do like actual passers. Jesse's guy really really really close with Ellie. They. Yeah. Definitely be. I think Bella would be in it. I think Ballengee would both be and I think so too. I think would be the prettiest bridal party in the history of bridal parties. Also, then she's some other friends that are less famous. I don't know how to get messed up Qelia, mo- knees. Yeah. She would be it. They have a lot of other friends who knows about like, let's think about Justin also eight hold on Haley side, another guy that would be just is that guy. Joe termeer? I think it's Killian husband. I could be wrong. Don't forget him. If I am. But they'd be in it. Okay. What asher? I don't know. I think it would be there. But I don't think he'd be in his party. I think you have to. I think the the thing Justin is that he has a lot of people that are really big influences in his life. But I don't know if you'd make them groomsmen necessarily, right Johnny the guy Johnny from shots. Yeah. They're really really close who else just like really closely surprising amount of people know, he has an also I don't know. How would how kind of manifest itself? I mean, again, I don't know the relationship. I do know that him and Patrick Schwarzenegger. Patrick Schwarzenegger are really close. Yes. I don't know close enough. Just the party itself would have so many people so many, and I say that like with reservations of me, knowing I don't think it's gonna happen. I do still think that there's going to be a big party. I think it's. Yeah. Because I think there's a part of that wants that fairytale. But but would be the point if everyone knows already married in their advertising that they're married. Why do you really think that they would celebration? Yeah. It's kind of like you have a kid, and like everybody knows you have kitschy so birthday party for them. Who's table? Would you wanna be at the wedding? Will that was the next question, which I think we should get into another time. But well, we want we could table it. Let's just say what table you'd want to be at like, family wise. But I think we can do a dinner party game with picking who you I would like to sit with totally that's for next week. But so this grow again when she emailed us. She was like would you wanna be with credentials or you want to be like Wilson stable just assuming that we'll be there because of course, celebrity wouldn't and what we came to is like it's a wedding. It's not a formal dinner. You can't get up. I mean, it is formed in you can get up. So I probably would want to sit with crashing to hear what they were talking about. And then I could make my way to we'll stay like and make my way to scooter near L and all of them. But I think I'd want to be stationed with the Kardashians. Probably unpopular opinion among non code Ashi lovers. But. That's where I'd wanna be my base. Yeah. And I could be sitting with anyone Jada gets up to go to the bathroom. I sit next. We'll for a little and I make my way over, you know. I don't know. I wanna like experiment with the different crew interesting because we've had so many dinner parties with the current Ashi and Will Smith already that. It's like maybe want to although Kevin Hart and Will Smith could be at the same table. Don't you think? Yeah. He would be there. Kevin hart. Yeah. I just feel like all of Hollywood would be there. I can't imagine anyone that would be invited. I know I'm trying to think are Anna ground would go. I think she definitely scoot early in her have been very close recently if you notice on his room. Yes. And really interestingly the way I feel about the wedding that you don't know this because you don't have siblings. But like, you can imagine like when your sibling has about mitzvah, and you get your own table or like you to invite three friends. That's how I feel like scooter as at this where he gets his own table of people that are also his client. Holy. And they're also so intertwined you. Right. I think Patrick Schwarzenegger again. I'm judging based on what I know from Instagram would be in the party. I don't go back. But I think I just want to confirm that I feel they also have the rumble boxing. I dunno. I. Now that I keep thinking about the fact that I said Jaden his best, man. I can't stop thinking about it. But you think that's right. Yes. Still. Yeah. Like, the the more I say the more like validated. I feel it was myself. You totally right. I think that's very possible. I think it would be an unbelievable wedding. I just wanna think for thirty seconds. If we're missing any major key players in terms of the party in terms of the bridal party. I mean, I'm sure we are either. Like, people are gonna mess. Like, what are you kidding? How could you forget? Oh, Kylie, honestly. Yeah. I wouldn't Kylie being the party. I don't know. And it's so hard because who knows with with how family oriented, they are who knows Haley could just fill the party with her cousins and her to shift siblings, or she only this assist does she have siblings. I don't know that. So it's so interesting because I don't know the dynamic of the families, and the siblings all these Baldwin as I don't know how they're all related. I guess let me Google it. Yeah. I that either way it would be if it were to happen allies sister. So that would probably be her maid of honor. I would have to guess. Yeah. Probably. I mean, they're that close. Yeah. It would be it would really be an insane insane ride that I would I would love to see that wedding. And I would love something else that I would love also is if they didn't if they didn't have that party would make me happy. Also, the fact that they are so in love and so like keen on the importance of marriage that all they did was have this quick little ceremony. They honored it. And now, they're ready. They're ready for marriage. They're not in it for the wedding. Not. And that I think says a lot. I completely agree with you. And there are cases where you can be both. But you know, what I mean? Right. Like, I'm having a huge wedding. Yes. But I was gonna reference Connie both. But they were gonna for both like, it's okay. But I just think for their vibe, it's something there's something really really special about the fact that it was just then they wanted to be married. They couldn't stand being married any longer. And now, let's let's see where this goes. Yeah. 'cause I think they're in it for the long haul. I agree. So to answer your question brand, that's our initial assessment. And we can continue this. Next time. If you guys like, let us know ask us stuff, send us things. I don't know. I like cutting. I've today I don't know what's going on with like my stars. But I'm having a major mode. Just gratitude I feel like not all sappy, but I really feel so lucky that we're here I roll eyes did. But I don't you. Yes. But how we're talking about. What we this is what we this is our dream you right? Right. Our job to to talk indefinitely about Haley and fevers hypothetical wedding. Are you kidding? You're right. It's best in my life. When I got asked on thanksgiving what I was thankful for. I said my easies, but I'd love to throw this into the mix. Also, literally not that I asked you to do this painting this as an commas vice loves, no, I mean, listen, I didn't like they're like, what are you think before like of all the things I it was probably my easies. But I the fact that I got to do this. Also is amazing. Okay. Actually nice little thanksgiving way to end it. Yeah. Anyway, is fun. I feel that I was playing games. Yeah. Shoot them. More often. Let us know your thoughts things I mean, not like gifts. But. Of course, if you want to send us messages, and yeah, we'll see you next week. Don't forget to describing what is what over say. At the end of his Lincoln via tweet we add to over like inscribe. Yes. Just if you wanna leave nice to that would be great, no pressure. I.
