"Do you think he's just doing an industrial bunking off kind of session? Because when I used to bunk off for Mitch from school, I used to end up in a warehouse eating my packed lunch. You know, it was always a grim time, I never bunked off to go to the cinema. It was always like, spending 8 hours in some industrial estate, hiding from teachers. I'll tell you, I used to go across a year to go to Sydney girls high school in Sydney, and I would go across to Fox studios when I had a bookshop and I would read books all day. Biggest nud, you could possibly imagine. I'm gonna do me some learning. Your way of rebellion was more learning. What I love from miss school as well as a strong NDA agreement. That's no red flags at all, but they insist that the children and the parents do an NDA. It can only end well. That's all I'm saying. It can only end well when you go to a job interview after finishing school and they say, what did you learn at school and you say I can't tell you? That's all the time we have for Kanye news because now it's time for our Uber hack news, this is the news that Uber, the ride share giant slash ethically dubious company has slowly been revealing how badly it was hacked. It began by revealing that it had a quote unquote cybersecurity incident and now basically an 18 year old hacker has come out and just posted screenshots of essentially rampaging through the backwoods of the behind the scenes ubers and just posting screenshots of going on a bit of a rampage and O'Neil you look like you know hackers. Can you unpack this story? Yeah, they're always 18, aren't they? They're always really young. Which is great. I mean, I'll tell you what, you don't get any hackers in Japan anymore. That's for sure. That's the thing. 18 is the perfect day for a hacker because it's when you have skills, but no ethics yet. Yeah, and no friends. No friends. It's very much a basement dwelling kind of an activity. And no one will make out with you, and if they would, you wouldn't make out with them in the project too. I just want to hug the teenage you. No, she won't hug you back. My brain immediately goes to rather than accessing the account details of customers or things like that. Just can you control the cars? Can you make the same place? Can you hack into that nav and just make every Uber in the world drive to Bromley? I mean, all roads definitely lead to problems. Oh, you know, all regulated, yeah. Fully excited by the idea of just congregating every Uber in one place. Like the queue. If I was to hack I'd love to find out why I got less than a 5 star offer taxi driver. I've been nothing but polite every time but I do not have a perfect I did not have a perfect 5 star rating and I just want to know when it was. You know? So you can find them track them down. Yeah, and then I don't know begged them. Would that give me more stars? What could I do? I'm a people pleaser. I really like the idea of a lifelong lifelong vendetta against someone that finally when you finally track them down, you just go on a total charm offensive, like giving them bottles of water, helping them with their cases. The thing that I find interesting about this is the hack, which was done by sending multi factor authentication, login, notifications, to one employee, just repeatedly for an hour, just like, hey, login, login, login, login, and then contact them, contacting them on what's happened saying, you gotta log in, man, you gotta log in. Which apparently none of us can resist multi factor authentication login notifications. I mean, no one can resist torture for like more than say two days. But no one can resist multi factor authentication login notifications for more than about 40. I think that's how some men seduce people, isn't it? Please, please. Log in. Yeah. Hacking is often like magic tricks. When you find out how a magic trick is done, it's incredibly disappointing. You find out how hacking is done. Did they build this incredible program? And was it this guy? No, they just let me in. Can you let me in, can you get me in? Can you let me in? Very disappointing. Yeah, exactly. You look at all the movie depictions of hacking and it's like streams of code and like four screens and they're tagging and having to tabby down for typing while making sassy quips. And the reason they can make sassy clips while typing is because all we're typing is log in. Hello. It's yeah, it's very similar hacking is very similar to magic. It's in a way if a man comes up to you in a smoking area and says, I'm a magician, or I'm a hacker. You would get on to Uber straight away and go home. That's all the time we have for our Uber stories and that's all the time we have for the show we've reached the end of the magazine and flipping through the ad sections at the back. Oh a perfume add Alison spittle have you got anything to plug? Oh, I'm gonna plug a wet, it's gonna be on a tour soon. I'm just organizing the dates and all that stuff. But look at my Instagram, Alison spill, or Twitter, and it'll come up. I'm also doing a gig on the 5th of November in Dublin. It's gonna be wet and the show is called let as well. So please come to that. And O'Neill, have you got anything to plug? Yeah, I've got old social media stuff. And also come to my Patreon. Patreon dot com slash Android and there's loads of videos and sketches and songs and essays and I'm starting to do an entire novel about a detective who not only doesn't play by the rules, but breaks every rule that he finds called inspector bastard.

It's a four part sitcom and I'm very proud of it. Yeah, it excellent.

"Reviews, section now, as you know, each week we ask our guest editors to bring in something to review out of 5 stars Alison spittle, what have you brought in for us this week? I'm reviewing asking people for recommendations for podcasts on Twitter. I did it yesterday and I said specifically no murders. And no comedians. People, people still suggested stuff for murder and comedians in it. Because I got a lot of PTSD from comedians, so I don't want to listen to that. At first it was very helpful, but then it became overwhelming. And also, people kept recommended maintenance phase to me, which is an amazing podcast about diet culture. And I'm like, I am a fat woman. Of course I've listened to maintenance phase. So I recommended the news to someone. Have you tried listening to the news? But yeah, yeah, I'm going to give it a 2.5 out of 5. Because I brought it on myself. It was very helpful. People are great. And but it has become overwhelming. So I'm taking 2.5 off. That's excellent. Did you get any good recommendations? I'm now using you to filter. You're wrong about, which I listened to already. Do you know what? It's been so vast. The people that recommend their own podcasts. They're a special type of person. Oh my God. If you like wow and gasp moment, I've really been enjoying life changes by Jane garvey. So I'll probably give that a listen. Yeah, there's been this absolutely been loads, I think. Several of you are wrong about, which I'm a patron of hiraga boat, but yeah, there's quite a lot of replacement. That reminds me for whatever reason of when I was, I was about 14 and I was like just desperately repressed and I told my brother's friend and I just wanted to make out with someone and my brother's friend said, I'll make out with you and even though I wanted to make out with them, I was like, oh no, that doesn't sound like a good idea. And then I had to face the reality that the problem was me. It was me. And my internal issues. Andrew, what have you brought in for us to review? I've reviewed my cat. Oh. 8 year old short haired tuxedo cat in a classic monochrome, 80% black, 20% white. Pleasingly asymmetric face looks modern and distinctive, a satisfying heft while maintaining a structural integrity, increasingly friendly, lap time continues to increase year on year, recharge time remains something of a problem, often requiring most of the day. Predatory skills and paralleled with the very latest auditory and ocular system evolution has to offer. Overall, solid workmanship, excellent shape, 100% furry when he's got his eyes closed. I'll give him a solid 5 out of 5. 5 out of 5. Nice for the cat. Education news now and this is the news that Kanye West has a mysterious new private school. Now I'm always weary about Kanye West's stories because I didn't want to tip into making fun of somebody's mental illness just because they happened to be a billionaire. So Alison fiddle you've been to school. Can you unpack this story for us? Yes, so I am a massive massive Kanye West van. So any type of story comes up for him a very, very torrid. But like I think this is kind of like a fun story. He's creating a school and academy. It will have all the subjects of maths and languages and stuff, but it also has instead of PE, he's teaching parkour, which is much of being a kid being taught parkour. That's amazing. There's choir as well. And acquiring academy has an element of like, if you're a kid and you want to be in the music industry, he'll help you with connections. One of the great details slash horrible details though about the story is that a dude came in from a basketball team to teach the kids how to play basketball. And three of the children gave him their autograph because they said that they'll be famous in a couple of years. It's the donda academy which is named after his mother. Yeah, I'm very afraid for Kanye doll. I mean, his brand is his life, you know? He has this thing of gap. A school. That's going to be hard for your brand. I know this, because I went to Catholic school and I can tell you, with the school he got a danger of you've got a danger of kids being messed up, basically. I know because I've been to a Catholic school. And it destroys the brand. It destroys the brand. So yeah, I wonder though when it does say it's exams, right? Instead of saying pencils down, does he go, imma let you finish, but Beyoncé had the best exam of all time. For me, that would be the great ascendant. I mean, this is one of the problems is, of course, that some people who visited the school call the attendees parishioners, which I feel is always a little bit of a red flag when you have a school that defines its students as worshipful. And O'Neill, you've joined a cult. Can you unpack this story for us? It's a 100% red flag cult. Alarms regard I was reading the story of the alarms were going off. There are a few details in this sort of found quite interesting. The first include that students daily schedule includes full school worship. I know. Which is presumably bowing to the building. And a full full school worship. The parkour things slightly strikes me as a kind of recipe for a great escape style narrative in which after lunchtime, all of the students have gone. Really extra high walls. Let's say they think they're going to be famous for being there in which case they'll stay. The spokesperson said, I want to be emphatic that there's never been a time that Kanye West did not want to do this. Right. Which is a very very bold statement, presumably including the early Bronze Age. Including Kanye West's pre verbal era between the age of zero and two, absolutely. I mean, if there's never surely this should have been the first thing, has Kali's entire career been building up to, I just want to get famous enough to starting a school. All of us albums are named after education. This first step was college dropout and then he got late registration and graduation. So he has been obsessed with education, but he's been saying that education is terrible. He said it never kind of suited him. So I don't know if what I want from my principal is someone who doesn't really believe in education. To be doing a skill, but in the age of the disruptor, Allison's bit away in the age of the people revising your very concepts of what education will be. Sure, some schools teach you to read and write and other schools teach you full school worship and parkour. And what is going to be more useful in the post apocalyptic era, I ask you, I just saying. There was also definitely a hint in this article that this school doesn't exist because they couldn't find anyone from the school to interview. So that's really that's his plan. He's so he's so fundamentally against education. He's going to flood America with schools that don't exist. It does sort of smack a little bit of like entrepreneurial big up talking Ness. You know, where they say we've got a business and they don't have a business, one of the scenes in which they discuss is that they saw a picture of children in an empty warehouse eating lunch and you think, okay. Does this school exist or is this just a photo opportunity that is sort of preempting investment into this concept of a school and give it a pivot and pivot until eventually what you have is a farm, you know? Do you think Kanye just doesn't like skill at once? In Ireland we call it mitching. I don't know what you call it in the UK. Yeah,

"Of also one of those stories where half feel sorry for them, but also there are deep, deep cultural prejudice reasons why this situation has taken place. Number one being that a prejudice against married women remaining in the workforce. So if you want to have a career, you can't also get married and have children and then also Incredibles xenophobia, which means that they can't republic by immigration as so many other countries are doing. So on one hand, it's a sad thing to be facing a possible decline of your national spirit and also to be maybe we should get helicopters. Ten, 20 years time, you know, when they really don't know. Just fly across the major cities. And you've only got yourselves to blame. The megaphone. You know, that would be an enjoyable activity. I was looking at this new story and I was thinking like, how did they know what the tipping point was? Did someone just step outside and smell a lot of Murray mints and go, Christ, the population has got too old. Like what is the, you know, what was the amazing tipping point? Because it has been coming a while. I wonder what the Japanese old person boiled sweet of choice is. Is it the Mary mint, the word is there a Japanese equivalent to the werther's original and as you suggested, should we invest heavily in that pickled plum? I think it's the ume. Is that right? I had a pickled plum, but I went to the doctor and it gave me a cream for it. Sorry, sorry, that was my 1970s comedy podcast. I do apologize. Have you had, have you tasted? There's nothing I can say now that's not gonna sound like a people on tundra. If you tasted people promise time for this story, ironically, this story has reached its tipping point. And now it's time for our ads. You'll add section now because you can't be what you can't buy. Are you finding it difficult to process the grim realities of life and death? The Age of Empires ending the beginning of a new grimmer era counterpoint to cultural narratives about forward progress through history. Are you full of angst about the uncontrollability of the numinous? Try the Q yeah, it's still going. It's still here. It's gone all the way through the magazine and it's appeared in the ad section. Is your floor lava? Do you have to make your way precariously from sofa to chair in order to get to the toilet without stepping in the lava? Try cooling the lava by pouring in an ocean as represented in this imaginary scenario by half a glass of water. Half a glass of water. The only cure for your floor being lava, terms and conditions apply this doesn't work if the floor is actually lava. Do not use more than half a glass of water or your mom will be upset. Please avoid if you have an expensive carpet. And this episode of the podcast is brought to you by the book, the book, a pamphlet with ambitions. Now it's time for exercise news. This is the news that people who invested heavily across the population in peloton are now trying to sell their pelotons, which they are no longer using as we all know. The peloton is the human embodiment of the new year's resolution. By human, I mean the exercise bike embodiment of the new year's resolution, I think people really leaped into it when they couldn't go anywhere and now they can go places. They don't want a bike that won't go anywhere. And O'Neill, you're a biker. Unpack this story for us. To basically people wanted to show off, you know, buying a state symbol that essentially only they're going to see. So something that investing a ton of money, way, way more money than you need to. And the cheap exercise bikes are available. And the thing that I was always struck me about, the exercise bike compared to any of the other simulated exercises, just get a bike. If you spend that much in spending like three grand or something, you can get really, in fact, you can get bikes for your whole street and then you can have a mini Tour de France. I could understand maybe simulating skiing or scuba diving. So I have very little sympathy for these people, very, very little sympathy. But I mean, can you get a normal bike that screams at you? That's the real question. Can you get a normal bike that abuses you for being too fast? Did you put a playing card in the back wheel? And then it sounds like a motorbike. Oh yeah, I've put a plane guard in the back of the other fat bitch. Exactly right. Not going faster. You can just imagine it. The human pattern recognition will do it. People are saying that they're using them as clothes horses. They just become expensive, expensive clothes. Get a real one. Juju and eBay era are once bought a horse made entirely out of clothes. As well as a clothes horse, you just peg your shirt to a horse and slap it on the ass and when it comes back, your shirt is dry. You can also actually buy a horse for the price of a peloton. True. And if it's mister Ed, you can try not to call you a bad bitch. Apparently the thing with the thing with the peloton that puts people off they use that they've got clipless pedals. So you need to clip into the exercise bike. So you need to buy specialist shoes that cost a certain amount to clip into the exercise bike to do. They don't even, they transfer very little extra energy on normal bikes anyway. Basically, I've got absolutely zero sympathy for these people. And once we've finished telling off Japan for it being their own fault, use that helicopter and go to everybody who can't sell a peloton, just go, you've only got yourself to blame. This is the thing. Everyone who's border peloton has west lyrical to me about and this is why I was talking about it about the levels of abuse that you can acquire. So you don't have to have someone who shouts at you angry, you can have someone who's like benevolently encouraging. And so basically the selling point of this bike is that there's a slider for how much sadomasochism you want in your exercise program. You can have a nice treat. These presumably a range of saddles. Yes, presumably a range of increasingly pointy and uncomfortable saddles. Yeah, okay. But again, I just feel like don't you have an internal monologue, can't you tell yourself that you're a piece of shit? Or parents? That you can ring. That seems like the obvious solution just ring parents or a friend, you know? I'm always scared of it for my health because I've watched it and just like that, which is the Sex and the City. It was a sequel. And they killed mister big with a panel. I know he was smoking. To disrupt it on his head. It was funny to me 'cause he was smoking a cigar and then doing the peloton and had a heart attack. And for me, I associated the peloton with his death, and not the cigar. I was like, well, this is obviously a very dangerous piece of equipment. And I'll never use it. It's scary. And then they had an advertisement campaign with the actor from that, and then he got me too, two days later. It's not been peloton's ear. You know, they've had a bad financial year. They use the same actor. Yeah. He ruined the peloton industry. To go, no, no, honestly, it's for I'm still the idea. They're proving that the actor still alive. Yeah, and then they had to do an advert a week later saying that peloton doesn't cause you to sexually assault me. No, no, it wasn't. That's not the fault of peloton. I am a broken man. You know. That's all the time we have for our exercise news. We're all tuck it out because now it's time for your reviews. Your

"This is the goggle. The sonic glossy magazine to the bugle's audio newspaper visual world I'm your host Alice Fraser and your guest editors for this week's edition of the magazine are Alison spittle and Andrew O'Neil. Welcome. Hello. Very, very excited to be here. Which of you is the hybrid in this scenario, by the way? I've got a contraceptive baron me, so technically I'm a hybrid. I was once very heavily pierced and now I'm not. Very nice. So I was heavily on my face and that. Just one kettle bell through the nose. Through the head from side to side through the ears. Yeah. But we're going to take hands on leap together into this week's news stories. But first, let's have a look at the front cover of the magazine. The front cover this week is the Q capital T capital Q, queuing in the capital to celebrate a capital lady, the queen capital T capital Q myths circulate wildly about the Q so then on the front cover of the magazine, we have some headlines about the queue. Do the first ten people to die in the queue, get buried with the queen, question mark. If you sprinkle chili powder across the cube, do they lose their way and not be able to find their way back to the nest. You can see the cue from space if you have a good enough telescope, the cue can see space if they look up and someone switches off the London Eye. The queue is about the journey, not the destination, the destination of the queue is a metaphor the destination of the queue is death all Q's lead to death, all roads lead to Rome, Rome wasn't built in a day, the Q wasn't built in a week, the queue is peopled by the strong. David Beckham was in the queue and a lot of people are saying, ah, he's just like us, and I can not believe that it took him being an accused to realize that he was just like us. I saw the queue in real life. Like, from a train in blackfriars. Not from space. No, no, no, no. My boyfriend wouldn't let me leave the train to go look at the queue. And he said, that's not the point. And I was like, I just want to see the cue. You can't look at the key. You're either in the queue or you're not allowed to engage with the queue, I feel. It's like a harem. The queues like the harem. You can be in it or not look at it, those are the options. Yeah, I found it disturbing, but also did you see that coupled up met in the queue? That is kind of cute. There are two people that have banned it over their love of the queen and misery and pain. And they're going to watch they're going to watch the funeral together. Genuinely, it felt like I was watching the end to take me out, where you just see two very English people in a grim location like Fernando's was. And this is the queue. And it's the most heterosexual thing I've ever seen in my life. And it's great. I mean, normally you have to go onto an app or a website in order to find another delusional masochist, you need to type that into your bio. But it's a Richard Curtis film straight away. It doesn't even need writing. No, no. Yeah, and it's just white people. Says an incredible point. Very, very white. The satirical cartoon this week is the cube, which is past the front page and has covered the first ten pages of the magazine. In other sort of tangential news that we're not going to cover in the magazine. Did you know that rates of syphilis have surged 26% between 2020 and 2021, proving that vaccines aren't or they were cracked up to be sure it protects you against COVID, but if you're like around, you got to use other forms of protection. Is this to do with the queue or not, sorry? This is and isn't to do with the queue. Okay, right, cool. Scientists have calculated that there are 20 quadrillion ants on the planet. That's a 20,000 trillion individual ants in case that helps your nightmares later. The scientists while telling us that they are 20 quadrillion ants have also told us that maybe there are too few ads. Wow. Wow. Too few ants for what, though. What's their scenario that's too few for? A catastrophic insect die off is what they were. Oh crap, okay? At the same time as the head scientist, the lead scientist said this is unimaginably many ants. This is the man whose job it is to imagine how many ants there are, has said officially unimaginably too many. Two things. First of all, I'm not entirely happy with the scientist imagining how many ants there are. I think I want more rigor in this process. And secondly, it goes, do you think the ants know how many of us there are? That's true. Is that too few of us? According to the ants, due to their plans for us. Well, speaking of how many of us there are, this brings us to our top story this week, which is a population news in Japan, apparently now Japan has 20 million people who are over 75. Alison spittle, you're feeling the cold hand of aging. Can you see the story for us? As such Japan, Japan is a country that has an aging population less people are getting married and produce some babies. Which for me is very interesting because I don't know like in Japan, there's definitely alternative relationships that people have. I've seen a man like get married to his own mouse pad, so for me, for me, this is a news story that was always going to come to fruition. I love it in a way because one of the most popular TV shows in Japan is old enough, which is a TV show, it's an incredible show on Netflix. You can watch it where a child gets to do an errand and their cameras follow them. And old enough is one of Japan's biggest TV shows. And it's also now the countries reason for its economy being destroyed. And I think it's a beautiful full circle moment. Children doing errand to prove that they're now old enough to be respected. They've coming of age, but the ages four or whatever. Yeah, right. Yeah, that's it. They can buy like a shoe or something like that. It's a really genuinely whenever you can I just say, unless you, unless you don't have two legs buying a shoe is the wrong glass. I'll be a child. Quite literally baby steps. Yeah. But then, yeah, they have the oldest of the world's oldest man. He's a 112. It's a country that's had quite a lot of old people anyway, and this is just a new story with statistics. So I'm excited. I know it seems like a bad news story, but I love old people, so I'm excited for Japan. I know it's going to cripple their economy and stuff. But like, you know, I want wisdom. Do you know what I mean? Well, I mean, this is the thing, right? This is one of those stories that has been coming for a long time very slowly. Ironically like such a high proportion of population. But it is one of those news stories, which is sort of not music except now they have tipped over that mysterious number, which means that if you're in Japan, I would be investing in old people's homes. And Joe O'Neill, what do you feel about this? I think the Japanese suit being old very well. I've seen Tokyo story. I've seen when I was a child, I was obsessed with Pat Morita who played mister Miyagi. You know, that was my first. I think they look good as old people. So if anyone is going to be the first aging population, I say congratulations to the Japanese well done. Had it been us or the Germans, you know, sort of flabby, north European western, that's awful. I think fair play to the Japanese. If we can get some ants together to train them in sort of elder care and that sort of thing, then I say, I say well done. And the cliche, as Alison said, the cliche is that the Japanese are wise already. Japanese children look wise to my prejudiced uneducated European eyes. I think it's great. I think also it suggests that Japan is going to be empty quite soon. Yes. And what a playground? Exactly. What better post apocalyptic playground than Tokyo? So I think this is excellent news, the Japanese will die off naturally leaving, leaving behind their picturesque future apocalypse hellscape. Congratulations.

Rene you are going to sit down. You are not going to do anything but relaxed whether that be like. Read my book watch. Hdtv whatever it is. Go for a walk. Do the peleton that might not be resting for example. Peleton doesn't sound very restful but it's arrest for my mind and that's important to distinguish. Sometimes i rest because my body needs rest for example fighting the sinus infection. Knock getting sleep. I physically need to rest. But sometimes my mind needs a break. And so what's really good for. That is listening to a podcast. Doing the peleton watching a show. That i know i'll be really into because it. Just lets my mind not ruminate about things that i should be doing or thinking about different topics. I always say since my low was born. I always take time before. I go to sleep to be by myself in my room in the dark. Whether i'm reading i'm watching housewives. I need that alone. Time to like recharge. My batteries and i look forward to it all day. Because it's it's just a special time for me and it sounds so silly but it's true that's just it's become my nighttime routine And you thank you guys so much for listening. I'm so happy that that girl commented on that post. Because i think it sparks a really great conversation and hopefully it gives everyone something to think about and something to consider.

"peleton" Discussed on The $100 MBA Show

"On how peleton became four billion dollar company. Of course we got to talk about the pandemic peleton exploded in the last couple of years because of cove nineteen because a lot of people were stuck at home gyms were closed all around the world and wanted to get a good workout in now some people might say oh they got lucky because of the pandemic and that's why they grew so fast that's simply not true. I did research and found out. Peleton did most of its growth actually before the actual pandemic but they moved up another level when they hit the pandemic and it's not because the pandemic they're successful they were successful even before it and the right product will always shine in the right opportunity. Opportunities will present themselves for every business at some point being around long enough to be there when those opportunities are there is really important and his key here now. A lot of places around the world gyms have opened back up and yet peleton usership has not changed people continue to use it and the the retention rate is still solid. This means peleton is a game changing competitor to traditional gyms and classes and they're not slowing down. I hope the research that i shared with you today on the three things that held onto to grow their business to a four billion dollar. Business helped you. Yes our company but the strategies are the same. You can use these strategies in your own business and leverage human nature understand who your actual target market is create a movement.

"Now. A couple of questions. I have here for you one. Is you guys are operating this business. And i would say that it is. It is disruptive what you're doing from what i can tell. The brand seems to be disruptive. What do you accredit the the rapid growth to do. What do you attribute the rapid growth to why is it. Being such a disruptive success. I would say there's more people coming to the category now right so there's certain people that would never try an energy drink right that more health conscious consumer really was not interested in putting in other bodies some of these beverages that had you know some you know ingredients that you can't even pronounce so as more people. Are you know looking for energy solutions. Whether it's a coffee drinker. That wants something. A little bit cleaner lighter Or you know somebody that might be drinking other energy drinks but is trying to live a healthier lifestyle. You know. i think that's really where the disruption comes in also. There's never really been a brand that you know was built in the locker room in this energy category right so you know. We're really fortunate that Death net recently featured us as a sports drink. Innovator we're not really a sports drink. We're not a hydration drink or something that you might take Before you want to do some exercise or if you wanna just have a little bit more energy and focus throughout the workday but you wanna have it with clean healthy ingredients and you know the other reason why people might consider us to be somewhat. Disruptors is just because of you know this athlete a model. there really haven't been athletes like saquon. Barkley labonte david kawhi leonard and now kendall tool who's one of the top peleton athletes That are joining a company like ours as shareholders and partners in the business. I think it's just you know shedding some light that there is renovation innovation in the energy category and that's where we could probably be looked at as being somewhat

"Enter that hex code and the place that you're going to enter it is right down here and that's going to put this your primary color in here and then you can start playing with those colors. You can move You want you can move it over to the darker or brighter side You can move it over to the lighter or more estelle pastel side right. But what you're looking for is the option of what is referred to as the triad with complementary color and so it gives you three colors this is your primary and secondary and a complimentary. And when you run your cursor over that color it gives you the heck's code for that caller just using this as an example all right but those colors are permanent another advantage. Although you can't see it on here right now. Is that every time you build one of these one of these color palettes. Peleton's saves it as a multi digit code. So you can save that you are l. and anytime you need to go back to it you can click on that you are l. and it'll open your palate again for you or if someone calls you and says i'm going to design your business cards. You have a color palette that you use you can give them that you are l. And they'll get that color palette along with the associated hex codes. And as i said all you have to do is Is Point your cursor to whatever color that you want and it'll give you the heck's coat in addition to that if you right click it'll give you all the other possible. Hsl rgb etc all the codes that someone could ask of you and you always have them at that pallet so basically the approach that i take his. I start with one color. Let's say it's the turquoise i enter that code down here. And then i start playing with it until i'm happy with how it looks. I usually start with a triad the adjacent colors. And then i pick a complimentary color in the way you do that is by clicking on that.

"The show where we read out four stories and have all contestants who like i'm paul does what he thinks the main takeaway of the story. Oh councils get one point. Good awesome get to does get three points. Each person gets twenty seconds to also before they hit this. Whoever's off after four rounds wins and gets the last word so we'll start with paul peleton. Peleton stumbles is our first round. Few benefited from the home. fitness phenomenon. Ushered in by the pandemic. like peleton knows courtney. Browne of axios. The company's connected fitness subscribers people who own the bike and pay for monthly classes reached. Two point three million in q two however growth slowed considerably. They added four hundred thousand new subscribers in q. one but that slowed down to fifty in q. Two down thirty eight percent quarter-on-quarter also q twenty twenty folks. We're taking twenty five royds a month so last year's cue to this q. Two twenty twenty one. It was down to twenty twenty five to twenty as a result of slowing growth. The exercise equipment make is cutting the price of its cheapest spin bike again by about four hundred dollars so as down to fifteen hundred now similar to the near four hundred dollars shaved off last september. Twenty twenty pull peleton. Stumbles was the point. Well one thing that i thought was interesting is just how much money peleton makes from subscriptions as opposed to hardware so everybody focuses on the price of the bikes but the subscription income. They get from someone who pays the forty dollars a month to subscribe to all of the content and the free. You know that the lessons in about three years equates to the price of that bike. But really what i think. The point of this is that if i had just paid four hundred dollars more for my peleton bike and i saw the price dropped by four hundred and and this has happened twice. I think it'd be really really upset. Like yeah This is all about driving. Subscriptions at this point their services are going beyond the bike at this point. And i think they're realizing that the bike should be more of this trojan horse to get the device inside the home and then you're going to have that drive. Subscription further ingrained people into the peleton ecosystem doesn't seem like they're trying to cut cost to increase profits here. It seems like this is a clear play to drive. Subscriptions maybe the bike should be shaped like a horse to drive home. Blake's point i would pay for that. I would get that one. I'll just ride to cure so is is there a instructor as homer to add. It's like obviously peleton wants to move into this. Recurring revenue model is more stable. It's they have like a better idea. How much money they have coming in and palestinian has been facing. I think problems with its product. Line is trying to expand into not just bikes but also has a treadmill product. But you know it's got hammered by recalling caused a lot of money and i think it's last quarter to drag on its profits so and they're going to be facing. I think increased competition from other at home exercise equipment companies. Like a mirror is one of them. So yeah i think it's his training figure out where we're going to get his money from edwards maybe run out of greenfield in terms of. Who's going to buy this. Pretty pricey blake the who was like. I don't really have much to add apart from these. Four amazing points aside from that trojan horse so it says if they're getting any money from pallets on maybe working on new products as well as its treadmills. Apparently working on a long roommate rowing machine and possibly a heart rate monitoring armbands but whether it be enough to stem the number of people who are heading back to the jim jim chain planet fitness said in august it had recouped seventy five percent of members lost during the height of the pandemic as reports out. There that could reverse given the new delta variant causing chaos. Three two we start with blake. What shops thing of sms marketing in july e commerce marketing platform. Yup po asked two thousand folks across the us the uk. Australia to tell them what. Shoppers want. From lebron's ss marketing program. Or they don't want some highlights for you. Number one over. Eighty percents of folks are signed up to texts from at least one brand eight zero but over forty percents get texts from one to four brands. Second point twenty. Three percent of shoppers. Opt into sms. Before that i purchase thirty two percent wait until their first purchase. An eighteen percent ops into sms after a few purchases and the third point here over half fifty fifty four percent of shoppers said that unlocking a one time discount code say fifty percents of their first purchase would make them want to opt in to us mass marketing. So blake workshops think of sms. Marketing was the point yet. I think even though marketers will tell you. That consumers are open to sms marketing. I think it's still sort of an unnatural place for consumers to be interacting with brands at this point so therefore the value proposition of signing up for sms is going to have to be very apparent in order to get customers or potential customers to buy into it so right off the bat things like discounts are good way incentive for driving sinus before purchase post purchase getting order updates. Things like that. That are very practical. But then hopefully you'll be able to retain those customers on your list going forward so you have value proposition. Sort of a big thing here in sms area yeah pairing plagued but yeah. I agree completely i think. Sms is a fundamentally different medium. it's intimate medium. And i think you know. Look at email i guess for some sort of cautionary tale about what happens when you turn the channel the marketing channel into a conduit for basically spam. I don't think people are really going to stand for that. In their s messages in there has to be some kind of utility the messaging that you get like blake mentioned something like shipping or tracking update. I think probably a lot of people are signing up for these one time discounts. And then unsubscribe being very quickly I also think creative is a challenge still in the medium. The space is still kind of fractured insurance. With technology. can't necessarily access rich media and so or people who are trying to figure out from Respective what's the message. Winter my constraints is still just a hundred and sixty characters. That's still been challenging bull bar for marketers to use sms as a marketing channel. I mean yes to send people practical information that they need like about a restaurant reservation or something that's geographically oriented or even a discount that's one thing but the moment they try to turn that into a broader marketing channel. I think a lot of people do get turned off. So i think they just have to tread very carefully. Utah third round amazon's. Podcast moves catch advertisers attention. Apparently i was in charge into pocar signals. Just how attractive. The former is to advertise per bloomberg rice insider intelligence analyst daniel konstantinovich he notes. That number one in february amazon closed. Deal to buy podcast studio wondering number. Two in july amazon bought the distribution rights to the podcast smallers hosted by willem. Net jason bateman.

"For it. But i need it. I mean i was like so afraid. Entering this conversation that i was going to sound like a sales person but i mean like i have again like this is my truth and so like if you get convinced that is the holding power of peleton. And i'm not trying to do that so like you know for other people who are in this called so these instructors are really like do a lot of info talk. I think like the fact that these personality speak to me outside of like drilling me and telling me how to like do certain things is what is like so special about this company you you mentioned before the a lot of peleton's meteoric rise could be attributed to the pandemic so what happens if and when the pandemic is over. I know it's scary to say when the pandemic is over at this point but when gyms are safe again does peleton's day. I think so i think the pandemic and peleton has kind of like open up kind of a new lifestyle that can feel very black moorish because we're so sequestered to our homes and now we work out as like regimented way. That is so plugged in. I think a lot of benefit to that know like if you are a homebody keeps you inside and if you can create division like it can be okay and it can be more accessible. I tend to think it's like good chew. Also prioritize like socialized incur effectivity. I take a group fitness class at the local climbing gym and it like reminds me how important those things are. I think like polygon definitely seems to be following the trend of you know streaming with tv's in movies at home but like with those trends. I think we need to put some brakes on it and incentivize going to a movie outside of your home or with loved. Owens are watching television together. I guess like when it's safe to do that in a pandemic so i want to know. Do you see peleton like expanding. In any way i mean. They could expand with their personalities into other types of sports or even into the entertainment industry with their influencers. I mean i'm scared for what they expand into. But do you think that's a possibility. Well i hope to see more body types in personalities ethnicities and a fitness platform. And maybe it'd be like refreshing to see someone like me who is always like kind of resigned. complaining that is that is still rightful representation. I have to say. I think again the most fascinating part to me is to see if helen Instructors who can grow big followings outside of the app then pursue other avenues and career opportunities. I don't think we've seen any breakout. Like fitness people become stars and other ways in music and tv and in film yet. We haven't seen that evolution before. But i i would like be so fascinated if that happened tonya. This has been a fascinating discussion. I know you're not getting paid by peleton. But i have to admit you did make me wanna buy.

"Not in florida has last question today. And here is what's on his mind in a heck bubble as relates to exercise equipment. I've noticed over the last few years that more and more smart exercise devices hasn't coming out and during the pandemic it's just gonna daily on my facebook seed of various devices you know. There's the peleton telethon treadmill a mirror that basically shows the exercises that you can do in the mirror and even a smart after enabled punching bag. Is there what do you need. Anything bubble on this where a lot of businesses just go under. I love question. I love all these by the way our audiences so smicer good question is are great. They really are. I've been to start at the bottom though and just say that at non like the ads that you're seeing are in fact your bubble just exactly what we were talking about earlier right like there are lots of people listening. Who don't think that. There's an exercise equipment bubble because like me. They're only getting ads for like face rollers and purses but non said he practices martial arts and he's searching for fitness equipment so he is probably being served ads related to that. So just that's a fun. Little nugget about bubbles. That goes back to our first Our previous answer however definitely though like all that said for sure. This is a huge thing that probably is going to end up in some sort of state of consolidation or collapse whole health and fitness equipment sales. Thanks again mersa. Grew eighty four percent in two thousand twenty from the previous year according to npd. Because we went out people went home. They weren't allowed to go to gyms like they. People bought treadmills stationary bikes mostly And those numbers by the way don't even include these direct to consumer brands like peleton in mirror so yes people are definitely buying them. Researchers say that sales are probably going to flatten in twenty twenty one. Possibly because every already bought them but that he thinks they'll be higher year over year and that possibly it's not a bubble. Some only traffic gyms as is around eighty-three percent now of january twenty twenty levels and it is very likely that people if they actually managed to get into a rhythm of working out at home and a lot of these things have subscription services. That can keep you motivated or give you a plan or whatever if people got into those rhythms at home they might really find it. Convenient hard to say Random random duct going here. Peleton is eight two billion dollar revenue company. Which is kind of wild. Yeah well it's a lot of various offensive. Maybe he ran in a apple margin situation because it caused a lot about the. Yeah so we don't know to be the short answer we don't know if it's a bubble will only know if it bursts but i got to imagine that at least they're not gonna continue to do quite as well. No no. I like working at home. All right. that's it for. What do you want to know wednesday. Thank you everyone for a banner day of questions. These are fantastic. So good We have a smart audience. We are so lucky. We are also lucky enough to get to come back tomorrow questions. We're at make me smart at marketplace dot.

You can't run on that treadmill because the company that makes it says you now need to pay for a membership to keep using your machine but you're thinking.

There is for a full refund. Now we find out if you don't return your device you will have to pay for thirty nine dollars monthly membership or else. You can't use it at all.

We're fine guys. That was fun. Your kid will probably be fine. Just relax have some coffee. What is life without risks as a parent which i am not that. Change that tune change quite quickly Peleton's see though the reception to it was your so bad. We talked about it on this show.

They were this in just the worst way possible and in a way that was completely disrespectful to the families even though they claimed to say. We're not. We're not releasing the information of the families affected because they don't want to be investigated like come on. That's not. You're making. Remember that. Bree i

Sometimes the way you talk about this company and to to frame this conversation. I think what we wanna do. Here is go a little bit deeper into that specific connected fitness market and use a few metrics that. Hopefully we're going to start building these scorecards around and publicize them so that people can take a look at where you stand where we stand on a more tangible number metric around a positive sentiment versus negative sentiment and with those factors are are intangibles brand a business model which is gonna be really important for peleton community or network effects team corporate culture and then lastly the wave which is the reform hose logo so opportunity for growth. Which one of those do you wanna start with peleton. All i think what's most appropriate is to give the elevator. Pitch voice is. And i mean i don't know how do we share.

A Big Recall for Peloton

"There was a big recall news this week right. That's right and it was a bit unusual and involving peleton and the co founder and ceo. John fully apologize twice about the situation. What apparently happened was last month. The consumer product safety commission warned consumers with small children. Children are pets to stop using the tread. Plus treadmill after. The fitness company reported a child's death linked to the product but peleton refused to issue a recall of its own at the time and then it opted to do so this week and quit selling the tread plus treadmill and the tread treadmill which had not been widely available in the us but was being sold primarily in uk and canada now overall the voluntary recall coverage about one hundred twenty five thousand tread plus products and one thousand fifty tread devices in the us now owners of the tread plus treadmill which the price of it starts about forty. Three hundred dollars can return the product or they can contact peleton to how the company paid a move. The device to another room supposedly. That'd be a room where children pets wouldn't get near the product and pelivan plans to send a software update in the next few days to tread plus treadmills with a digital pimco. That can be used to lock the device and unlock it. So after you use it it'll automatically lock and then you need a lock diviners correctly. It's also working on modifications to the product. Now the cps see the commission said it had received seventy two reports people. Pets are objects quote being pulled under the rear of the treadmill including twenty nine reports of injuries to children such as second and third degree abrasions. Broken bones and lacerations in quote as for the tread treadmill peleton notified the commission last week about a defect involving a loose touchscreen that can become detached from the device. There have been six reports of the touchscreen falling off but no injuries in the us.

Calories: What are they?

The Nutrition Diva's Quick and Dirty Tips for Eating Well and Feeling Fabulous

Calories: What are they?

"Let's start with what a calorie is and how we know. How many calories of food contains a calorie is a unit of measure like an inch or a kilogram only instead of measuring length or wait a calorie measures energy. Technically a calorie is the amount of energy it takes to raise one gram of water by one degree celsius. Calories can be measured using something called a bomb calorie meter. Isn't that name. You might even have built a crude version of a bomb category meter in sixth grade science class. In broad strokes submerge in a bucket of water. And you put a thermometer in the water and then inside that submerged chamber you set something on fire. The heat generated by the combustion raises the temperature of the water in the bucket. And you can measure that with the thermometer. And then you can calculate the amount of energy or calories were in the thing that you said on fire so we used to use bomb calorimeters to calculate how many calories a given food contains these days. However it's much more common to estimate. The number of calories based on how much protein fat and carbohydrate food contains and those amounts can be determined through chemical analysis. Now when we're using the word calorie in relation to food by the way we are actually referring to kilocalories. Sometimes you'll see calories abbreviated as k cow. And that's what that refers to when we say that a food contains sixty calories. It really contains sixty thousand calories but all those zeros would be a pain to deal with. So just lop them off and believe me. This drives physicists. chemists absolutely nuts that. Why do we need to know how many calories food contains well when we they just food. We don't literally set it on fire in our stomachs but our bodies do release it's stored heat or energy and then we either use that energy to power our biological processes or if we've taken in more energy than we need we store it for future use if we habitually in more energy than we use we gain weight so we use calories as a guideline to determine how much food energy a person needs. We need enough to fuel growth and maintenance but not so much that we start storing a lot of fat there are calculators. I'm sure you've seen them. They can estimate your daily calorie needs taking into account your age sex height of activity level and then there are databases and labels to tell you how many calories are in foods however as james implies in his question. There are few problems with this system. First of all those calorie needs estimates. Can be way off. You can plug your details into an online calculator and be told that you use eighteen hundred and forty seven calories per day but look you need to take that number with a truckload of salt. Energy expenditure varies hugely from person to person. Even if you. And i are the exact same height weight age and sex and we do the exact same workout. You could burn four hundred calories more or less than i do. Every day and energy needs can also be affected by genetics body composition hormones drugs and a million other factors and moving targets and just to make the whole situation just a little bit more ridiculous. Those readouts on your treadmill peleton fit. Watch or diet tracker that. Tell you how many calories you burn doing. Various activities are only slightly more accurate than asking the magic eight ball. But wait. there's more calorie counts for foods are also not as reliable as you think those numbers that are listed in your calorie counting app represent average values foods so even if you are measuring or weighing your food with great precision well. This apple may be a little bit sweeter than average. That banana might be a little less ripe. This not might have a little bit more fat. Even for packaged and processed foods. The calorie count. That's shown on the nutrition. Facts label is just an average of variation of plus or minus. Ten percent of that value would not be at all surprising. Secondly those calorie counts are estimated using formulas that may or may not be one hundred percent reliable it was recently discovered for example but the standard formulas that were in use for most of the last hundred years. Were overestimating the amount of energy that we humans are great from nuts. More modern methods suggests that owens for example provide about twenty percent less energy or fewer calories than we previously thought

"Business owners have really adopted and glommed on to this new digital wave that we've all been thrusted into because of the pandemic small business owners like never before have been forced to seek help to digitize their business in various ways to try to accommodate the could their customers and try to survive. Frankly beyond just You know they're. They're the current environment so that they can pay their bills given that the lockdowns of had such a the capacity have had such a big effect of small business owners. There was a recent article published about small businesses that talks about how eighty two percent of small business owners are ready for digital payments and other digital methods of doing business as well. There was a study that was conducted by visa revealed. The eighty two percent of small business owners are shifting toward digital payments in response to the pandemic now. These small businesses are rolling out new forms of in-store contactless payments to meet the covid nineteen weary customers that are demanding their protection when they go to stores at the point of sale. And if you've gone to places like target recently or gone to places. Some big box retailers. Then you probably have seen some of the different methods that these stores have used to try to accommodate customers like putting barrier protections on the keypads of the payment like bacteria prevention or spread prevention bacteria. Microbe free plastic. Wrap things on the show what they're called but on the keys where you can punch in your code. I hope you still use sanitizer. Because those things say claim that they disinfect like all day which. I'm not too sure about not exactly sure how that works. But but anyways. Contactless payments in digitizing payments in digitizing business transactions is a big thing at the moment a small businesses or hopping onto you know and honestly there's some evidence that has shown that there are a lot of some big reasons. Why small business owners like yourself. Listening to this podcast. You consider this. The eighty two percent increase of small businesses using contactless payments was up according to the study from twenty percent in june. So now it's well. We're february i now january's over so you honestly at this sixty. Two percent increase in june is massive. It's absolutely massive and it. It absolutely shows no signs of slowing down in the new year since the pandemic small businesses have shifted in general digitizing their operation so if in the fitness industry which i know well of course because i have a stake in the fitness industry. Fitness companies have digitized their offerings. Of course everyone knows about some of the massive at home fitness companies. Like peleton have done. Really well and digitizing their brand and capitalizing on that digitize. They should of their brand and even with boutique studios fifty offered virtual studio classes to the members so that their members could have their workout still at home despite being off down and not able to come in so there have been a demonstration across the board in the us of many opportunities as small business. Owners have taken to digitize their small business and this includes at this point contactless payments. And if you're listening to this podcast. He don't contactless payment is think apple apple pay or amazon. Pay or pay pal. Basically you put your credit card into your smartphone and the wallet of your smartphone. When you get to the register you punch in your code or use your face. Ide- your fingerprint recognition and you are able to charge whatever you pay your buying at the register with your phone you just kinda hover it over the the payment system and it automatically takes your payment.

"peleton" Discussed on The Workr Beeing Podcast

"Haven't been doing the same person i used to calibrate and lately i've been doing joel friedman and similar styles a little bit different. I might go back to autumn soon but it is funny because they're just like so stupid but they're and they're like basic. It's not hard to figure out what your it's like weights and cardio like not anything mind-blowing but just having the structure and not having to think about planning it for myself And there are different like all their new programs. It's a different one every day for like eighty days or however many days so like there is variety still so i do like that i do enjoy makes sense like just not even thinking about it just having it ready to go and you just do it. Yeah i've been like see. I actually have been having fun planning my classes. I'm like all right. Let's fine which music i like. I wanna do with and then they have like this featuring stack classes together. So it's like you make. I dunno whatever. I'm really getting excited about it. But um but it is fun. It is fun. I like the other apps. I was using like there was one that i really liked but it was good when i was going to. Jim had heavier weights. Like we just don't have a lot of space like it's either like we get like a giant thing of weights or you could get like the peleton and personally i like something like peleton more so And like you know some light weights and body weight stuff. But i don't need like a giant thing of like a million different dumbbells and that'll up space right and also i live in an apartment so the thing that's nice is that the peleton's super quiet and here on the second floor but there's not room for a lot of gym equipment on the second floor so if agenda my office i would just be like dropping weights on top of like somebody else's bedroom like no..

Presidential Pelotons and data accountability

"What can happen if you have a connected bicycle in the white house and this reminds me. This is actually a good thing. I think to think about because we're old enough to remember this. But you know presidents used to get special. Even obama had a special blackberry created for him. It used to be that you didn't have to worry about cybersecurity because the president in his office had his landline phone rate. In the secret service had radios. And it's not like if you need to get in touch with the president you can get in touch with the president right. Well not you or i but someone important and then cell phones came along and everybody was used to posting on twitter and doing their thing and this became a real concern for people who are worried about foreign powers spying on presidential communications and now with the bringing in of connected devices. Maybe not a smart home like i don't think the white house kitted out with philips hue bulbs but a peleton is an entry point into the network so my hunch is i would. I would love for someone to tell me how to secure the peleton in the white house is on its own dedicated network. Maybe that can't touch anything else. I mean i'm trying to think of the ways that this could be bad. And i'm not really a hacker so i don't know but i like that we're thinking about this because we're probably going to benefit down the road as the defense insecurity infrastructure for the us figures out how to secure the stuff that will trickle down to the rest of us. And we'll get new an awesome best practices and the peleton itself. I mean it can track your heart rate at belief certainly detracts the rotations of the the bicycle tyre tyre but flywheel and so on and so forth like you could get in personal health information from if peleton's data was hacked or whatever and that sounds like who cares but really a foreign power could determine that while publicly every the president's in good health etc maybe he isn't and they would know that and that could change some outcomes. I think peleton does is great and we didn't think about this from a security standpoint but my wife wanted it on and we just didn't buy it because it was too expensive for us so we bought a non connected bike for about four hundred dollars and she the peleton digital classes so no data is actually tractor or something like that. And i'm not saying go do this for security reasons. Or that's what biden should do. But that's one way to mitigate it no. I don't think there's any speakers in like i don't know if he needs to watch what he says. He can't talk about microphones. My bad microphones. Right i've ridden a friend's palatine. And i don't recall that but i was also dying by the middle of my ride so i told you including speak. Anyway i'm like. I don't think anyone wants to hear me. Okay so just throwing that out. There is interesting security thing and something like we should all be aware of going forward. And maybe we'll get some new best practices out of this.
