"To their drill instructors using their ranks or roles followed by their last names. Gendered identifiers prime recruits to think about or visually search for a drill instructor's gender first before their rank or role. Right. Colonel Howard hall, chief of staff of the Marine Corps training and education command, told the defense advisory committee on women in the services, let me say that again, the defense advisory committee on women in the services that the radical shift was being considered by leadership, albeit with some pushback from the Marine Corps itself. Proposal was one of a half dozen recommendations the marines entry level training advisory council was considering. It's not clear when the service will decide which ones to pursue. And he warned that December meeting of the defense advisory committee on women in the services that it would not be a quick fix. So it wasn't enough to get women obviously integrated into the military. And if you say yes, ma'am or no, ma'am. But what if she is actually he and his identifying or transitioning or something and now you've missed gendered so forget it, you know what I mean? You know our enemies laugh at this stuff, right? They look at this and they think that victory has made us weak. That's what they think. And it's kind of woke nonsense in the military and we've talked a lot about this over the years, right? We have talked about this, whether it's the diversity equity inclusion nonsense that they're teaching people and now of course with this gender neutral nonsense, this is the stuff that makes everybody understand that as long as we're using the right pronouns, as we bomb you, then everything will be fine. Everything will be just fine. As a former Marina was always yes or no drill instructor, ma'am or sir was only for addressing an officer. One person wrote with others saying only recruits would ever use the terms. The commission study highlighted a number of areas where the service still comes across as being a male dominated operation. Well, if nobody's using those terms, what do you need to make this change for? Ah, that's the question, right? Sexist behavior in jokes and training material focusing on men often using male pronouns even for positions held by females. Women became a prominent part of the regular Marine Corps in 1948, but still only accounts for 4.3% of officers and 5.1% of those enlisted for active duty. This is not about offending women in the Marine Corps. This is about capitulating to the transgender movement in this country because the transgender movement is the movement that wants everything to be pronoun neutral or you have to immediately put your pronouns in the subject line of an email or on your email signature. You've probably seen that. When somebody will sign their name on an email, you know, Paul Smith, he him, or Sheila Watson, she her, or the people that say, you know, they them. That's the thing I can never. I feel like pick a team. You know what I mean? They them is too much. Complicated. But this is the new thing. People put it in their LinkedIn bios, people put it on their resumes. And there's a growing movement to require this in school too, where kids are asked what their gender their pronouns are and you have to ask them this in the classroom. And then you have to, of course, accordingly address them as they want. And if the parents don't know, that's even better at keeping them in the dark. It's stuff like this, giving into this woke nonsense in this country is the reason why guys like Ron DeSantis are doing very well in Florida, pushing back against this in the classroom because that's what Ron DeSantis came out and said yesterday. Yeah, this whole thing about how he's going to battle the teacher's union. And you know as well as I do that. The whole don't say gay Bill doesn't say don't say gay. But they all went down that road, right? And Disney paid a price for that. Disney paid a price for that because the marketplace said no thank you. You're going to get involved in politics like this, then you better not go down this woke road because if you do, we're going to tell you we don't like it. Keep this stuff out of the classroom. Keep this stuff out of the military. It's not about offending a woman or offending a man. It is giving in to the rainbow terrorists out there who want everything to go according to their guidance and direction. That's what it is. And because we have an administration that is more than happy to capitulate to them. And an omnibus bill, by the way, that just gave out a whole bunch of cash. For all kinds of projects related to this stuff, they'll do it. No doubt about it. 877-381-3811. Let's go to rob is in Cleveland, wanted to discuss the Hunter Biden story. Yes, rob. Yeah, it's personal. You guys got to stop getting triggered by wokeness anyway. I think it just makes it worse. It's not that big of a deal. It is what it is. But the Hunter Biden thing. So I'm a bleeding heart liberal. You can make fun of me all you want. And I would love to have an honest conversation. Hopefully I don't get cut off. But the Hunter Biden laptop thing. Everyone knew it was out there. Everyone knew what he did. He had relations with some women, did some drugs and stuff. Nobody cares. That's what we have. It's not about that. It's not about that.

"Who are the galatians? In short, there are a group of people from the gentile region Paul and Barnabas visited on their first missionary journey. We read about this in acts 13 through 14. As we know, what's been going on with this influx of gentile believers is that some of the Jewish believers have been trying to force their culture on them. The laws of circumcision and whatnot. Paul has already addressed this at least twice, and they attempted to resolve things that the Jerusalem council. But some of the Jews didn't get the memo. Either that or their intentionally rebelling against the spirit led decision from the Jerusalem council. They started going around to all the places Paul preaches and undermining his teaching by telling the people they have to convert to Judaism first. The general term for people who do this is Judaism. People who combine God's grace with human effort. We'll link to an article with more info on the Judaism in the show notes. This general idea is still alive and well in religion today, but it's not usually called by that name. We usually refer to it as legalism or moralism. Paul is furious with these undermines, and at some points he even seems to be furious with the church for believing them. But he opens his letter with grace and peace to the galatian churches before making a quick segue into his rebuke. By the way, Paul's intros are not fluff. They're dense with theology. Try not to rush over them. Paul points out that this distortion of the gospel that they're believing is a false, gospel, and he pronounces God's judgment on anyone who preaches it. Then Paul launches into his own story to give him some credibility for making this argument. He was a zealous Jew, eager to live out the traditions of his fathers even to the point of violently persecuting those who disagreed. But he said God chose him before he was born and at the right time God graciously called him and revealed Christ and Paul Smith three years being taught the scriptures. Apparently by the spirit and the word, before he ever consulted with the apostles in Jerusalem. Then God directed his steps to preach the gospel to the gentiles. He went to Jerusalem with Barnabas and Titus to submit his doctrine in his efforts to the church to make sure he was aligned with them and the truth. He mentions tied us here because Titus was a Greek gentile with no Jewish ties and he wasn't circumcised. So if the Jews in Jerusalem didn't insist on circumcising Titus at that point, then Jerusalem obviously wasn't requiring it. But even then, Paul said, some people were suspicious that his message was too easy, and they tried to undermine it. They didn't like all the freedom in it, it needed more laws. the apostles of the early church were happy to direct Paul and a ministry to the gentiles and Peter in a ministry to the Jews. They only asked Paul not to forget the poor, and they were probably referring specifically to the persecuted Jews in Jerusalem, even though his ministry was to the gentiles. Paul tells the galatians about a time when he had to call Peter out. Peter had been pretty great about eating with just any believer, Jews, and gentiles alike. But when James sent some people to visit him, Peter suddenly started eating only with the Jews because of his fear of man, and then other people started following Peter's lead. Because Peter was misleading people, leading them poorly, leading them away from the truth, Paul had to publicly correct him so that they would all be corrected in their thinking too. Paul says, look, I'm a Jew, not a gentile, and even I know that your actions don't save you. Only faith in Christ saves a person. Furthermore, if I were to even attempt to earn my own righteousness, I'd be vetoing his death on the cross. Because why would he even need to die if I could just do this on my own? I could just get circumcised and avoid a few foods and rest on Saturdays. If I could earn my own righteousness, he died for nothing. In chapter three, he goes on to say, you have the spirit too, so let's talk about this. How did that happen? How did you get the spirit? Did you do some kind of action and that summoned him to come to you? Or did he just come to you through the faith God granted you? And now that you've got the spirit, you're trying to start doing some kind of work to gain God's approval, as though the spirit himself isn't God's very seal on you. Stop it. That's not how this goes. Salvation is by faith and sanctification is by faith. They're both gods doing. Then pulses something revolutionary in a very succinct way twice. This message shows up throughout scripture, but here's where it's distilled and neatly packaged for us. In three 7, he says, no, then, that it is those of faith who are the sons of Abraham. He repeats this idea again later in three 29, which says, if you are Christ, then you are Abraham's offspring, heirs, according to the promise. And remember, he's riding this letter to the galatians who are gentiles. Do you know what all this means? It means that even though God has a unique, irreplaceable relationship with ethnic Israel that gentiles can still be counted among the descendants of Abraham. That relationship isn't contingent on ethnicity or circumcision. It's contingent on faith in Christ, available to anyone of any ethnicity Jew or gentile. God made that promise to Abraham 430 years before God gave the law to Moses. Promising Abraham that all the nations of the earth would be blessed through him. If abiding by the law is how we obtain Salvation, then what happened to all those people who lived in the 430 years between Abraham and Moses before the law was given. Salvation has always been about faith in yahweh, and as always been available to anyone who has that. Paul has been hammering this one point home for three chapters. He's approaching it from every angle trying to dismantle any potential counter arguments before they even come up. He's pointing to his own story, the story of Abraham, the guidance of scripture and the spirit, along with the decisions of the apostles, all to drive home one point. Salvation is the gift of God by grace alone, who faith alone in Christ alone. What was your God shot today? Something we don't discuss much in all this circumcision talk is that if that's the way they had to enter the kingdom and only men were circumcised, then what about women? How would women enter the kingdom? I bet these new female gentile converts may have wondered the same thing and maybe even felt hopeless or overlooked. Paul leans into that question in three 28. He says, there is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is no male and female for you are all one in Christ. This has to be so encouraging for his audience. If the only people who could do what it took to know God were male Jews, that would be tragic. It would eliminate so many people. But because of Christ, the door is open to everyone, and in God's family, we're united even across our differences and distinctions because of the spirit. He's where the joy is. When I talk about D group, maybe you're like, I've tried Bible studies before Terri and they are not for me. That's why I listen to a podcast. Maybe your experiences have mostly centered around gossip or complaining or showing off, or maybe it's just all been self help studies about how awesome and powerful you are, and you're like, I don't have time for this. I want to learn about the lord, not about myself. That's exactly why I started de group. We study the Bible, and we have a structure in place to help eradicate and prevent the problems that are the biggest complaint of Bible study expats.

"Businesses. Alfredo, it's great to catch up with you my friend before we talk about how are you before we talk about that great billboard in Times Square and relive some great moments of our event in Tampa a few weeks ago, I got a play for you. Congressman Jim Jordan, what he said moments ago about small business owners and what small businesses have experienced under the boot of the Biden administration. This was just moments ago as Merrick Garland was about to testify on Capitol Hill. Here's congressman Jim Jordan. Every single liberty we enjoy into the First Amendment has been assaulted over the last year. Stop and think about it. Americans were told you couldn't get a church couldn't get a work. Couldn't go to school. Small business owners were told you're not an essential business, close your doors, causing many of them to go bankrupt. We were given curfews, stay at home orders. Last fall in Ohio. In your Alfredo at ten. I've seen in the streets of New York and all over the country, frankly, businesses shuttered for good because of this administration. I'm so thankful for people like congressman Jim Jordan to remind them in person what they've done to small businesses in America. Yeah, absolutely Mike. And it has been an absolute war on small businesses. Administration, I mean, is completely out of touch. They're clueless in terms of what small businesses are going through, you know, we just completed one of our monthly polls, Mike. And I think I actually mentioned this to you when we saw each other. But only 11% of the small business owners that we've pulled said that they're just barely recovering from the COVID pandemic. And so imagine that 90% basically of our business in this country are still trying to get out from that COVID pandemic. And then you lay on top of it the labor shortage caused by the Biden administration. Now the supply chain interruption caused by the Biden administration. And then you have this proposed vaccine mandate on all small businesses above a hundred employees. And Mike, I think great exception with how Biden has portrayed this vaccine mandate has only been applied to our largest employers in this country. When I hear that Mike, I think delta, I think United Airlines, I think Coca-Cola right, I don't think of like, you know, mom Paul smith's, you know, manufacturing companies, whose city Iowa with a 150 120 employees. I mean, this is a major major issue. And that's why Mike as you probably were very well know by now, we are taking the Biden administration to court if they don't pull this back. They've got to, and you guys are fighting. You guys are battling on behalf of small business owners. That's why I want everybody to join job creators network. Job creators network dot com. Tell me about tell everybody about the giant billboard in Times Square because I know that's not cheap, but that sure gets the lefts and the Biden administration's attention. Oh, yeah. It certainly does. Well, as you know, too, Mike, we've been pretty effective with billboards in Times Square. Going all the way back to when we hit AOC with the Amazon fiasco that she caused by getting 25,000 jobs out of 25,000 jobs from New York banks AOC, great work. You did a great job with it. Yeah, yeah, absolutely absolutely amazing. So we've been hitting the Biden administration. We were definitely a thorn in their side because we just keep on hitting them with all these ridiculous ideas of the mandates, everything else that the Biden administration has brought forth to the American public. The latest one is really hitting on the vaccine mandate. You know, and what we've said there is, hey Joe, it's time to let the mandate go. You know, because this is something that we just firmly believe is a decision that should take place between you and your doctor. It's a private decision, it's an individual decision. Mike will need to be really clear. We're not anti vaxxers. I personally have taken the vaccine. Most of my employees have taken the vaccine. We think it's great thank God for president Trump and vice President Biden who led the charge to come up with this vaccine. If it weren't for them, we wouldn't be here today talking about a vaccine. We've been a much very difficult situation. So, you know, we encourage all Americans to take vaccine, but we do not believe that the government should be able to mandate and force employers to be the vaccine police for them and implement social public policy. And Alfredo, the left hates that position. I mean, they don't understand it. We leave them scratching their heads because I'm exactly the way you are. I believe in the vaccine. I got my second shot this week. I got the second Johnson & Johnson as recommended by my doctor, and that's my personal decision, but for the fact that government to impose that medical decision upon employees and have them lose their jobs. I keep thinking about Dave Chappelle who's been in the news with his big Netflix stand up comedy special. And he's a serious guy, and he said something that was really profound when you take away a person's livelihood. You might as well kill them. And it's so powerful for a guy like that who relates to so many millions of fans, that's what the Biden administration doesn't care. But job creators network does, and that's what you guys are fighting every day. I was so proud to be on stage with you. Governor desantis a couple of weeks ago. We even had a couple of loony protesters who tried to crash the party with claiming the desantis failed in the COVID response. Oh, I'm looking at COVID numbers these days, Florida at the bottom of the list in terms of the decreasing cases in Florida. I think we're second only to Hawaii now in decreasing caseloads. How about that? I wonder where those protesters are today, Alfredo. Yeah, that's absolutely right. And look, and that's one of the reasons Mikey, and when you look at this upcoming mandate that's being worked on through osha. And we believe that it's actually going to probably come out any day now and we'll be ready to fight..

The goal is to promote altos legacy and to reach an audience beyond just architecture and design it through guests. We find it very important to value our heritage and inherent values in his architecture. Humanism sustainability connection to nature and to increase the knowledge of his. Life's work and us. Finns are often a to just. I would like the local people to be more proud of the great heritage. They have all that. There was also a person of great culture. He loved arts. Music literature and So do a lot of people who appreciate his architecture so bringing together different branches of culture by organizing wide ranged festival. Like this helps the organizers to reach new wider audiences. my name's emily norton. I'm here at overall too weak to give a lecture and demonstration. I'm a graphic. Designer based in helsinki and my work involves writing editing and public programming. Right so you are here to give a lecture performance titled the table with three legs talkers through your performance. Yes so the talk is Playful investigation into the finished design industry and it looks at the idea that the industry is supported by four legs over four pillars and each of those pillars represented institution so kind of walked through those and thinks about authors table with three legs into tries to figure out which of the four pillars missing. What would you say. Altos importance to finish design design and architecture. The interesting thing about him is actually the smaller kind of stories and so i think it's actually a bit of a pity that of course he's so popular in you hear about him often. But you hear the same stories over and over and I think the kind of obvious example for me are actually the images that you see every year whether it's on social media or other places you just kind of see the same images and it isn't until you read his biography or find you know small lectures or something where people are talking about other details that you kind of understand his importance from winnipeg villa. This is beth. Reports of my. Thanks to petrie births off there. Now we turn our attention to an organization shining a light on craft and design in corners of the globe often overlooked due to conflict from yemen to afghanistan. Iska works with local partners and artisans to bring jewelry clothes and much more to a global customer base the proceeds from sales not only help to preserve traditional crossman ship in these countries but also goes towards charitable projects. Such as new hospitals monaco's mainly evans recently caught up with some of the team to find out more on a quiet residential streets. In london's easterns iskoe was holding a pop-up sale inviting a number of independent companies and retailers to showcase there was a wins along and met edmund. Lebron the co founder of fish. Car an austin first of all whether iska comes from the sky is the name of desert shrub that's found in northern afghanistan and it's very unremarkable looking trump. But when he ran it it turns into a hard nash. Which when you combine it with dies it makes those ties shine brightly ready chores out that color and is a primary found uniquely in afghanistan so for us. It's an emblem off seeing whereas not immediately obvious was started with my girlfriend and now wife floor and we were living in afghanistan for three years. When we're living in afghanistan. We were frustrated how the country was viewed particularly in europe. It was a time when there with the paris attacks. they're also number of terrorist attacks happening in the uk in brussels and we felt that the whole country was being viewed through this lens of terrorism. And that was a very different perception of the country from the one that we are experiencing living in afghanistan where our daily was. Much more shaped by afghanistan's rich culture the hospitality it's people and the ship. Ut if the country and so we wanted to a brown that would show that side of kinda stunt to the rest of the world so you went to herat in western afghanistan and we came across this workshop which was run by. Johnson was the kind of seen the hasn't changed for hundreds of years. He's making glass in the tradition where it's been made in herat fatigue thousand years. It's very simple glass. Making tradition the shapes of natural and organic and the color extremely bright and with him retiring soon as the prospective gloss sector in afghanistan. Dying out together the inspiration to launch glasses. I need one crossed. But there are many crafts across afghanistan and countries that are affected by conflicts in particular. Uh which already on the brink of dying out and yet there's huge demand at the moment particularly in europe but will send in the states for very high end crossman ship which is uniquely individual and so whilst this huge demand that demand is completely disconnected from the makers in countries like afghanistan have no means through which to reach those those markets. A main aim is always to use croft as a way to challenge perceptions of countries which are often misunderstood. And it's the same for all the countries where we work whether extremely strong craft traditions as extremely strong culture. But because of the way that we can seem on news often the only images the steak-n-ale mind when we think of these places are war or poverty or corrupt governments or failed eight and actually for us. These are any vice. More power of the realities of these places and so every piece that we sat on our site aims to tell a different story about these countries unto shine a window onto a different of their narrative. Triska the emphasis has always been on.

"Relates to your approach to design. Yes i mean. I think the childlike childish is just an expression used. But but i think the point is that child like that. You've got or whether you know young children. But they're very honest wise. That mango big knows. Why is he. Bay why is he small. I don't like these food very honest because they've gone through that whole thing about. Oh that's not very well mannered or this and that so if you this wonderful freedom of stuff you're not referencing things and the problem with celine fashion very conscious about. Oh well that brand is doing that. And they're doing this and they've owner shop. There was these reference points and these things that you're nervous to do slightly differently. And i think not making the world. Very homogenized vary plain not exciting like it used to be. I mean i'm older person. So in the sixties. Which is when i was a teenager was the second or third may second generation after the war the previous generation have been really repressed and really held down and suddenly we were allowed to say. Oh let's long. Let's why shirt that's got flowers on it. Let's let's play this odd. Music called psychedelia and pink. Floyd and reg regs always all those bounds. That very pioneering there was this sense of freedom a now think unfortunately which just full of reference points and of course we social media you can get slated very nba. Chris is very very easily within seconds so people are a lot more cautious of all a lot. More nervous do. Do you want to ask you to elaborate on these reference points. I guess i'm i'm curious you've experienced in your own work or life. Can i just talk to you about conversation. I had with my grandson recently. He's a classical pianist university. I talked to him about his exams and he said if i play. Stravinsky brahms or chopin. Then my tutors have referenced points. They can understand. They've heard all the pieces before so they know this part should be slow quiet so that ide drawers power out to all the browns looking at what each other doing and then he said to me about. I did a an unusual piece. And luckily i got march well for it but the interesting thing is to have a reference point they they know how to critic because they're never heard it before so being pioneering is a wonderful thing but it's also quite nerve racking in terms of running a business Financial success or in the in the case of education. You know getting the points you desire. And then i guess just finally. I'm curious how you find the confidence to do away with those reference points and tiger childlike approach. And really try and do something new without fear you know have have. You had any experiences with that. Have over the course of your career and my business. He's always been built on on this at the front of my body. Which i'm putting my hand up in front of me and this which is the behind my body and what that is is a station of a seesaw or a balance and the hand in front is to do image innovation. Attention seeking special things. Fashion shows twice a year in paris. A beautiful shopping album street in mayfair. Another one who entendre in paris the pink shopping way but here my hand behind me is the fact that we sell a very large quantity of beautiful simple navy. Blue suits white shirts polo shirts. Chino pants and are the. We've got shops in south. How in london. So you'll the marais in paris downtown in la so it's very much about having the balance of keeping the image high and that equates to childlike doing things special during things different during things which are quite self-indulgent and then paying the rent with more commercial things so the way you achieve it is by having commercial pieces that help the cash flow and the overhead off survival and then you do the shelf indulgent pieces which my financial director will always question. Always question them. Is this really necessary. Why have in show when we've actually finished selling anyway. So what's the point. And the point is your future the appointees.

"Crosses fashion furniture and industrial design in projects across the globe. He's latest work. Is the development of a concept car called strip which he has done in collaboration with many and bmw with many and bmw. To find out more about the vehicle. And smith's general approach to design monaco's nick minnie's caught up with creative smith began by sharing some key features of his latest design. The start off point was that i think many shape is fine as good the one that is currently in production so i didn't want to change that at all but what i did do was. I didn't paint it. So the body is raw is rosedale. The way just comes from the pressing and so he's got lots of little marks and little cat has got character each little scratches or marks. And it's not perfect at all. Then i just bought one simple layer of clear lacquer on it so it's a bit like the outside when you look at it from the street in the street. You think well what she done because he just folks silver car but in fact on closer inspection you finally got these little imperfections and it's so much diet your best pair of jeans or year. The jackie you inherited from your father may dotson swayed. Scott it'll scuff some marks and things on it so the outside is that also the the roof is plexiglass completely recycled and recyclable. I've stripped the whole of the inside of the minneapolis. Say you could see all the actual frame a cell from when you look into the roof for instance you could say that the actual frame of the car. There's nothing covering it up with. Ruth lining or anything sprayed it in a amazing blue inside a bit. Like an yves klein blue used. And you can actually see the role of the call from elements of you could see from the outside from the roof on the restroom. The inside on the outside. It called a spat on outside some of those three d. printed in recycled and recyclable materials. From our conversation off. Air that some of these paces on the outside of the car can be taken off using an allen key. They're almost modular. And i guess that other components like the airbags visible and there's no nerve and you've also got this amazing coke dashboard which is both beautiful. And i guess. A revolutionary use the material given all of these. Can you tell us about any other. Parts that a significant and what they're made over and maybe touch on on the sustainability component took part made specifically for this one off car made out of aluminium on the center of the steering wheel. You can actually see the bike just behind net like mesh stewart. Well he's going back to my love cycling. The steering wheel is covered in tackling tape. That you would find on handled all the doors a fabulous because they just got a recycling mesh on the door so you can see all the workings of the dole and the inside of the door and you can see the speakers a revealed for the music system. And then the actual goal handles are mountaineering. Row which have been made into a sort of sausage and they're how you close the door. It's really strict out and so well done many. Because they're already doing lots of amazing sustainability projects as comedy. Bmw minia really conscious of global warming the planet and they're doing wonderful things and all i was saying israel wate. What if we took out. What if we did that. What what about this. What about that. So who knows what whether it'll will. I mean the minis was in london than going to munich from the call fare. And then maybe it'll travel to some of the design fairs around the world because he's very interesting very thought provoking whether or not it'll ever progressing to elements of it going into production car or whether they'll be portsmith production car. We haven't had a conversation about that. I don't really know but he's really interesting. I mean that was my next question. Pull it concept car at the moment as much as it could develop into something for many and bam w and a relationship with you. Do you hope that maybe other manufacturers and designers see this and carnegie go like well we could use coconut alcazar or modular removable materials and that. Maybe it's sort of challenges. Conventional thinking about vehicles stephanie. one of the surveys. Hopefully it's a strength is quite well known for my lateral way of thinking about things and not going down the obvious route. Always i mean you probably familiar with shopping. Los angeles where. She's a bright pink box on melrose avenue and yet my shopping. My hometown is in the building built in seventeen. Thirty sakes so as a company on the fact that we've had this wonderful longevity as an independent company. Not part of the big group is i think often because i always enjoy challenging myself and saying what if and i've never seen on my laura was. This room is full of things. Things that are inspiring. I always describe. This room is a room. That's not childish. Because it's full of toys and objects and kate beautiful but it's more about being childlike. Childlike is in. My opinion is where you've not cluttered with education with experience with travel. You haven't got strong reference points of things you've witnessed so you've got this freedom to say. Well why don't we try that or let's have a go so question in a very long way round is yes yes. I hope it inspires not just car manufacturers. But if you look back in history. Seventy like richie drudges. They pump purdue or the beaubourg century in paris. Had all the services on the outside. German design a d. Toronto did all the wonderful thing for braun often. Usa radio and you could see all the workings inside so certain design is over the years of of of just been brave enough to do things differently building on this. How does this way of thinking relate to the the car industry and other industries more. Generally one of the huge problems for a car manufacturer a restaurant hotel of newspaper and magazine is that you're very conscious of all your competitors and so as a call manufacturer this is me saying there's not many another whether it's true but you know if say every company has a four wheel drive and they've got all these scott. The certain satnav de tally scotto projector. It's got a flap screen. It's got this then. You're nervous to not how those things because you're buying a call for yourself or your family and you think you have but this has got that and this that and so having a call is stripped everything out. I completed sound from a commercial. Point of view. Could be quite nerve wracking for the owner or the financial aspect of the company. Because you're being almost a bit too pioneering. You know want to ask you as well. You talked earlier about the difference between childish and childlike. And i guess the importance of being childlike can you. Can you tell us how this.

But i'm always surprised that there is little of this as there is considering like you go. Everyone's got gun like three hundred thirty million people and three hundred and fifty million guns and everyone's on medication and everyone's having fistfights and commercial airline flights now phone kind of surprised in everyone's the weaponized with government and against remarkably little sort of ram van into the capital fence. Stuff or the the white house if you look half this country's nuts there's the white house seems like every third day someone we try to fly a cessna into it or drive a van. You know through the front gate or something. It's it's it's kind of repair considering. How nutty medicated. everyone is. This is the exception that proves the rule. And it's interesting because this guy. i mean. the video was over half hour. And he's talking about there was like some stuff about his wife his ex-wife's medical bills. I think she may have cancer patient. He's he's overcome overwhelmed with these bills. He's never going to get out underneath and unclear whether he really had a bomb he he was talking about like a bunch of change and a role in nichols. And like you know he was holding this kinda rusty looking tin thing But so far. Nobody knows if that was anything. I look at that man's face and desperation but usually it's like they're kind of easy to make fun of a punchline wack job but i watched a lot of this video and he just i mean not that he seems well but he seems desperate old. Remember when old nutty was like anna nicole smith. Yeah that used to be our old like clinically sane person buddy. We'd all have a nice laugh about it before they turn. That was a turning. How funny she has yeah the reality show she said oh she's dead not so funny. Yeah right yeah now. They've amped it up. Will you mention that show by the way it was a ratio. Is it called on the rent now. The red carpet or her show anna nicole smith. Not paul smith is something maybe that thing that it does feel like a lifetime ago that around You mentioned Fights in the air and glad you because cnn reports that federal authorities are proposing more than a half million dollars new fines against commercial airline passengers who refused to wear masks hit flight attendants through luggage across the cabin. The faa's announcement of more than a half million dollars in fines against thirty four passengers accused of being unruly so federal documents. Show that nine of the thirty four involve a passenger accused of touching her hitting a person on a plane including crew members and half. The incidents involve Flights to or from florida the faa the flight attendants union would like to see harsher punishments. But the faa says we. We don't do criminal charges so we can't help you there really. That's what they said. It strikes me like when i was in junior high. You'd have the kids get out some kid with get out of hand but we didn't have to turn the classroom around and go back to. Wherever we're from the bummer. The airplane is you can't just kick person off you've got to turn it around. Everybody pays and go somewhere that every no one wants to go to. I don't know like you think. Do you think airlines is gonna be this with airlines like You know you take accommodations like our case so you you have airlines. And then you have the destination of the hotel r every might go to on your airline when you when you're traveling and we we all understand that if you wanna go to vegas and you want to go down to the end of the strip and hang out at slots a fun. There's going to be different clientele from vibe and there may be some action in the casino that you didn't want they're going to be some drunk people getting into it and that that kind of thing. But we all understand that. If you go book meal at mr chows and liked caesar's palace is going to be completely different world. And we got frontier airlines and southwest. It's and country is something going to emerge domestically where you go. It's gotta dress code clientele. You're paying a little extra. But they're never turning the plane around. That's a good idea. i mean. I've just meat ax. They have another competitor. Euro era like jets. We'd ex is awesome and perfect. But they're real limited. Yes yaro i think is what it's called but it's also very limited and there's one that does like exclusively first class is like a thousand dollars a ticket because you're flying essentially on a plane with eleven seats or wherever it is is limited an appeal to a wide audience. Well that's a good idea though because all flying gen pop now like in jail. Everyone's in the yard so you're right the only way to distinguish it's not going to be about the stick. It's going to be the carrot. it's going to be. Hey come over here pay another three or four hundred bucks. And i promises what happened on our flight will didn't wasn't virgin and jet blue kind of that fifteen years ago. Clicky a little bit better. I was version was literally a step. Above every poster boy loves loyal is out loyal member or whatever it was yeah status and then got resort by alaska now just nother so might there be. Might there be something for that. It'd be nice. It would be star by richard branson when feel on line now. Yeah just we paid little bit more. You got a little bit more in the clientele was not the because let's let's face it there.

"It's safer from an evolutionary perspective to have that kind of group cohesiveness. Oh yes i think. That argument can be made. Paul smith from australia. Says you have mentioned a few podcasts. That went mormon. Women are ask a frequently respond that they like be a sister wife. I'm referring to this television. Show sister wives. Your rejoinder to this is along the lines of. How could they know they've been embedded. In this way of life forever they have no experience of monogamy to compare it. My question is this. My question is is the same not true in reverse that is a people embedded in a monogamous environment for their entire lives. Know that their way is better. Okay this is a really good question is of course we're all embedded in our particular cultures. Mike atieno western well today. Oh christian culture. I guess you'd say a democratic culture in its own where monogamy is the rule. That's right. I mean that has not always been that way. In many many societies historically polygamy was sanctioned there sorry it was endorsed and But but when you really kind of dig down into those examples it's usually just a few powerful males that are enforcing the rules in some cases. The laws about polygamy They get most of the women. Will you know we know that. The sex ratio is pretty close to fifty fifty. So what happened all the other guys well. Too bad for them. Case of mormons they in these fundamentalist mormon communities where a lot of these women are groomed to Marry some old guy when they it their late teens early twenties. What about all the late teens. Early twenty guys that grew up with they kick him out of communities to get rid of them because can't have a bunch of guys and their early twenties with all that testosterone walking around. And you know they're not allowed. You know fulfilled this part of their life. And that's just not healthy so i don't think it's natural in away from an evolutionary perspective. Disabled polygamy is the way it always has been. So that's natural. I think that had to be enforced. with some pretty strict rules And that because of the sex ratio fifty fifty. I think most anthropologists today described the human species as being serially monogamous. That is we trade partners. you know. Having multiple marriages for example is not that uncommon anymore but but within each marriage. It's a monogamous mary. Now there is something called poly-amorous where you have multiple loves and apparently some couples could do this I it's hard for me to picture that happening. And i just don't think my wife and i would be five in that too much but i can see the other people. Okay fine do personal. I don't care what people do long. Happy but i just don't think that's quite the case. Does he listen to podcasts. You know i've also talked about. I'm this with prostitution You know a lot of these. Young women are addicted to drugs or beaten by The men that are controlling them. The men make the most of the money and so on. So it's not a it's not the kind of free choice one may make you know.

Well what's interesting is i. it's funny. Bring this up. Because i was when we were doing a bunch of research for the dock we were looking for. We were looking for influence her account so we could emulate them and copy them. And if you go look at any of these bikini-clad accounts whether it's men or women. There will be one photo of a sunset or a cappuccino or chair on the beach or something where they where they took the picture because it was there they felt artistic at the time and they wanted to express his pitcher and the bikini photos get a million likes and that chair pitcher or the that sunset gets like a hundred. And it's like and you can tell the trying and the not going to delete it and it's and it's but i also think like part of part of me thinks like well you should do more of that and say screw you to the people running a like the naked pictures of you and like force them to look at some of the things that you want to document that you see is artistic. Yeah yeah it's unfortunate that a lot of people influence or specifically the what drives their photos. It's the lakes so they are catering to their audience rather than catering to themselves completely. Here's what have you seen. What were some of the most obnoxious things. You've seen people do on instagram or social media to attract attention or fame. What makes you cringe man. I hate when people go in public places and do things for the graham. I really i don't at all like Okay so i have an example. I was recently in new york city. And i went over there to see Caused shows called what parties in brooklyn. Our museum Anyway i've been a big fan of him for a long time a lot of my life as an artist so anyway to see this big presentations crazy because he has all these like statues and they have like all these emotions and a lot of them are like the some of them look like they're crying and some of them are like sitting down and like these certain poses and this is like the this is like the the what everybody knows him for these like they're called companions and there's people in this museum and they're like clearing space in the museum so that they can sit down and like emulate this fucking sculpture and in take a picture of it so that they can put it on the graham. But when i'm looking at you do it. I'm like bro. You you look so terrible right now and artwork where the there was someone who removed photoshop photos out of people's hands and scenarios like that. So if you have the couple lying in bed next to each other but like they then you take the phone out. You just like you're staring at your you're crazy. Person are hand right same thing. If you were to remove the phones from that scenario those people would look and see if i found it from my point of view. Oh my god you look at so lame like he would be like bro. You really went over there. You bought a ticket to do this. What's wrong with you. When i'm just anna place. And i see that people are like taking the most like basic photo op. I guess like like that pink wall. I didn't understand that before. Nick took me over there but then i realized places like that are all over. La those those things with the wings on the wall people trying to do that. I'm like dude stop. Stop take appears it's become so cliche. Well it's interesting. It's interesting as the pink wall. Yeah tell me about the because it's right down the street from here. And and ev. What pink wall. Why every time. I go by their seventeen people. Taking photos in front of seventeen is a low number. Lots of slow day. It's so there's a the pulse myth store in l. a. Is is a big pink rectangle of a building that they painted bright pink and they did it not not not for social media but they did it because they thought it would look cool and it's kind of like you know paul smith thing to do and it has become a one point. The number one tourist destination in los angeles. How flat pink wall. And what's really interesting is if you notice when you drive around la now. There are dozens of pink stores at as a sneaker store on melrose painted themselves pink. Oh there's a target Place next to the target down on. Beverly that painting itself painters doughnut store over on highland like all these stores have now painted themselves pink with the hope that people come to take a picture and then by a donut. Or something like that. And it's It's crazy it's just. It's i mean when we we went to film there for the opening of the film. Just like fun sequence where we shot and on a slow motion camera people sell fees and jumping and so on and so forth and And we would like we had to get releases from everyone for and people would be. I mean there were there. Was these women that had come from england for an instagram vacation where they get driven around all these different places to take selfies there were there was a guy that instagram vacation. It's two thousand dollars or something like that. They put you up in a a condo and glendale. Because you don't know the difference and they drive you around for a week to like the peer and the pink wall and the wings. Chris mentioned and like you take a bunch of pictures and that's it and there was a guy we can't that came young kid. Fourteen years old who had driven from like four hours away just to come in with his parents to come take a picture like crazy. Yeah totally crazy is. We've another question here from justin in college station texas. How do you involve minimalism. And mindfulness work. This is something that i am trying to deal with. And i'm just curious how you incorporate those things while you're at work so justin is a social media manager and really i mean this is something that's difficult because as part of your work for both of you you are required not required but you feel as though you're required to be on social media to some extent and so it's always about finding that balance of misery and contentment ray putting it so so how chris how was that manifested in your life. Where you you you feel as though you're compelled to post something as part of your business but also it's might be driving you crazy at the same time. Yeah so recently.
