Imagine a life without Google

"Up one day and google. All of google is gone. G mail search. Google drive youtube google home. Google maps gone in australia. That world without google might not be that far off lawmakers. There are pushing for some regulations on the silicon valley giant and in response. Google has threatened to turn off its services in the entire country. Joining me discuss recode reporter and host of the new season of podcasts. You listen to called land of giants and it shrink affari history. Hey tiny so. The new season drops today. Congratulations everyone should listen to it right now. or after. this is over In this season you chronicle google's rise from tech startup to this global powerhouse that is now fighting with australian government walking. You tell us about australia. Tell me what's happening there with regulators and how this might play out. Yes so it's a real standoff between australian government and google and basically what the government wants is for google to pay publishers. More like newspapers magazines for new snippets. That show up. Google search but also and probably even more critically for google. They want google to open up their secret algorithms around how they rank results in search and notify any kind of news organization if they end up changing that algorithm and that is something that will really close chest and does not want to share and in land of the giants. We actually went into the origins of google's first revolutionary algorithm called page rank and You know why was it so important and something that you would never want to give away if you're google because that's exactly what makes you google. What would that mean to pull out of the country. Does that mean if someone in australia goes to. Google dot com. They don't get anything. Possibly it could mean that you cannot do a google search. You cannot Open g mail. I think that The full scope of it hasn't really been discussed because at this point they're negotiating right. It's a negotiation and google has said this is a last resort option. They would not wanna poll google's products. But who knows it could be something in between they could just block news articles from showing up so you could still find your local pizza hut. But you couldn't find an article about world politics. Yeah i mean it feels like this Matters to non. Australians which i assume is most of our listeners. apologies to those over there but for most listeners this is about one country. And you know they're fighting some tech giant. Whatever like. Tell me why i should care. The big deal is that this is kind of a template for how governments are going to deal with google in the future right because google and itself has become so powerful that it's almost like its own nation state and you know if a stray elia really wins in the standoff. It'll be a flex of power and so it could be something that we see happen. Not just a miss really about in england in the uk who knows maybe even in the us one day and it's a real test of who's gonna win and zooming out from this right. This is a conversation that's happening. Not just not just the united states but everywhere right about is google chew powerful. That's the theme. You look at during land of the giants. Tell me about how. Google might fair under a democratic administration that frankly like the republican administration that preceded. It is preparing serious. Antitrust action against the titans. That's rates for google right now. It is a very important critical and nerve wracking time. Because they're facing this historic lawsuit. The us government under president trump's administration has sued them. And said you know cues them being a monopoly and now this new administration under biden is inheriting that case and everyone is looking to see who is biden's new attorney general. Who is he going to pick to lead up. This google case is going to be even harder on google. Is he going to expand the scope of the case. How much attention is he going to give it. And we don't really know yet but we do know that there are really strong currents Within the democratic party pushing to be aggressive in breaking up google's power and that comes from people like elizabeth warren and bernie sanders. Who have campaigned around this idea and have a a strong progressive flank of supporters in the party so You know no one knows for sure. But let's say we do know that biden is feeling the pressure to take on big tech and to not be afraid to have his administration go after google and other big tech companies like amazon and facebook. So google is so big at this point that when we talk about antitrust action. We probably aren't really thinking big enough. Frankly i mean. Tell me if google were in australia or you know. Be broken up in the united states. Can you just give me like a sense of the vastness of google empire like. What are we taking for granted in this conversation. I think we take for granted a lot because we just use it every day. It's the calm this integral part of our lives. If google's products were to be pulled from the internet. I basically personally wouldn't probably be able to do my job or even get around with google maps or something like that right and google offers most of these products largely for free so to give google credit. You know they've made these tools. That are so incredibly helpful on the other hand. Are we to reliant on them should there be more competitors in the space. Those are the kinds of questions that politicians are asking right now.

How to Choose a Safe Seat for Your Baby to Eat with High Chair Designer Kirsti Vandraas

"Today. We're talking about the seat in which your baby learns how to eat. That's right highchairs. And when it comes to hide your design there is no one more well known for icon design in this space than peter obstacle of norway. Peter offset designed the trip trap highchair in one thousand nine hundred seventy two. When he looked around for a chair that allowed his son to sit in a natural way at the grownups table and because nonesuch chair existed he designed what is now known as the iconic trip chair basically so he could include his son in as he says life round the table. So many of you may have this chair that trip trap or recognize it. It's sometimes like to a ladder so the trip trap is a wooden chair with an adjustable seat and adjustable footplate and grows with your child so the company that peter designed it for which is called. Shutt- is headquartered in norway. And they've actually sold more than twelve million trip trap as so it is one of the. Most globally recognized chairs. Personally i love this chair. I have in us seven of the trip traps around the table for my seven children. They've really been fabulous investment wonderful. Especially if you have a smaller space where you're feeding your baby or babies or if you're feeding multiples it's wonderful because it has a much smaller footprints like not one of those highchairs. It's gonna take up your kitchen. So while peter fix trip trap was designed and launched in one thousand nine hundred ninety two when his son was little forty years later in twenty thirteen obstacle launched. Another chair called the nomi and this was really his realization of his vision for designing the next generation highchair one. That's dedicated to his grandchildren. So peter obstacles now eighty one at the time of this recording. He continues to work every day. And cures deep vandross is a physiotherapist and an ergonomic who works very closely with peter. In fact she's worked with peter object for the last thirteen years. So kirsty is going to be on the podcast today. Sharing peter's vision and philosophy about the chairs that he originally designed for his child and his grandchildren. Now that millions of families of used around the world. So if you have a trip trap or a nomi- or if you're in the market for a highchair that will continue to serve your family and your child long after these initial stages of starting solids. I think you're really going to enjoy this interview. Because the scandinavian design principles and the philosophies held by peter and explained today by st are so very different from what we may have in mind when we go to select a seat for our baby to learn how to eat so today on the podcast. Kirstin i are going to be talking about the difference in american and european safety standards. Why norwegian families do not actually strap their babies of their toddlers into the degree or the extent that americans may think is necessary. This is going to be very eye opening for a lot of you certainly was for me as kind of a control freak. Mom we'll be chatting about why the trip trap and the nomi were designed with the very obvious absence of trey and what that means. and then. How the adjustable foot rest is probably the most important safety and design component missing from most highchairs today. So i hope you enjoy this interview with cure. Steve andros from the peter obsta company. Kirsty thank you so much for joining us. I am so excited to have the opportunity to interview you. It's catching get now. If you can. Would you tell us a little bit about your background. And how you know the whole life story maybe. How did you get into product design. And then how did you come to. Work with. Peter ops vic. Oh it's a long story. I am a physiotherapist anais. I started working in our major hospital here in in ostler with people with back and neck problems you know. People came into the hospital more or less paralyzed with pain and never thought they would be able to come up and walk again and with a treatment lots of guidance we build them up again and they went home and they were fine and had a lotta for knowledge with how to behave to avoid back and neck problems then. I saw that it was difficult for them. To use to knowledge they had when they went back to back. So i sold our institution equivalent to osha would been interesting place to work to see if i was able to get other people to create positive working environments where you could work but still keep your health so i spent ten years in our show in charge of ergonomics and then i started sinking. What about getting into detail. The totality because their via opium much more than chair tables but share and tables reports on the totality and. I wanted to see if we could make chairs in such way that you didn't talk to have problems with your body after sitting. Who working so. I started working ritual. Company that developed sitting solution for the working person unlock was contested. Interesting period thomas there for six teen years and then i met peter ops week. One of a number of designers. We used not process another lost twelve years. We're solely read. Peter and peter's sir designs promoting them talking about taking part in the product development. So that was a long story. But you know the background and How i ended up here. And you're still actively working with peter. Is that correct. Yes yes wonderful. Can you tell us a little bit about the history of the design of the trip trap and then the nomi highchairs and especially with regard to promoting freedom and fellowship. The trick drop chair was developed in the beginning of the seventies piotre just had his son wounding sixty nine will sitting on an ordinary highchair s. You know the high chair has been around for for generations. you know egypt. They use highchair. the hunt. Chance in their mini is an pizza hut his son sitting in hijab but then when he reached a year and a half you know he didn't really need to sit with the sort of support all around his waist. He was looking for other chairs that he could place his son around the table together with the rest of the company that did not exist so he had to make his own amber trip chapels but one then in nineteen seventy two and i think he did something very clever back then because he did not make it to fit into what you call the design of the seventies he had the distinct bischel feature in the seventies and the result is that the chair still look quite Modern had he designed it giving it the visual design of what the kitchen look like. Back in nineteen seventy two. It would have been outdated very old looking chair today.

Alibaba founder Jack Ma is lying low for the time being, but he's not missing

"Stock just jumped five percent yesterday on word. Their ceo is not dead. Wow this year. The huge fundamental difference of doing business in china versus the united states. All right so jacqueline. You're talking here about the other jack jack. Ma former teacher present billionaire current location. Jack of jack ma. The former english teacher jack ma. He is a hard worker seventeen miles a day on a bike uphill to learn english. Both ways he also applied for job at kfc twenty three other people and he was the only one who didn't get the job. So what we're saying is jack. Ma falls off his bike. He gets back on the bike and then he founded alibaba twenty one years ago and that became the amazon of china. Now we mentioned jack mas hard working he actually evangelize is the nine nine six workweek which is nine. Am tonight pm. Six days a week for a total of seventy two hours and sounds absolutely awful opposite of the four day workweek way. Bigger the four day workweek knackers today. You could argue. That alibaba is more innovative. Then america's amazon. Yeah it's basically it's google. It's amazon it's fedex. It's pay pal all that rolled into one with a nice bow on an app alibaba stock however is down thirty percents since october on some really bizarre and kind of scary news all right. So this one's kind of strange. It all started back in october. When ant financial a different company the pay pal of china was prepping for the biggest. Ipo effort alibaba under the leadership of jack ma. They invested early in aunt group because they saw the need for digital payments in the ecommerce future so alibaba owned thirty percent of aunt. So anti peo- was going to be a big payday for alibaba. therefore jack ma. that's because aunt has one billion customers. They offer every financial service imaginable. He has eight. It's pretty much like the pizza hut buffet for fintechs picture. The little kale in between all the cottage is when jack ma made a fatal mistake he criticized. The chinese. Government does knackers in the us. You perfectly are allowed to criticize the government. Actually do it all the time. Even though you're not a huge fan of the damage that's okay not everyone's a fan of the dam and you're allowed to complain about the dmv because you are protected by the first amendment of the constitution freedom of speech though not a write in china. That's why it was a big deal in october. When jack ma at a conference during a speech criticized chinese regulators for stifling tech innovation with outdated regulation get this is the result the ant. Ipo that huge biggest ipo ever. It was blocked by authorities. And they called in jack ma for questioning they wanted to make an example of him speaking out against china so they actually ordered group to return to their payment origins. Because of what. Jack ma set and jack ma hasn't been seen in public since then and for good measure. The chinese government decided to launch an antitrust investigation against alibaba. After jack ma said what he said. Oh it's drop alibaba stock mar- oh and by the way w just told cnbc. Jack ma is alive. He's just laying low right now keeping a low profile. We're glad to hear that he's alive. But it's a little strange for a stock to jump because he's alive fleet

"One of the things that we've never really talked about. Is your background in mining. Even on show a couple of times but for a while there. You were running a facility in kansas city right. Yeah that's right ray. Six for a while like ninety five percent six okay although yes super bitter backstory. We started lecture in like august twenty seventeen and obviously those were crazy times back then nicoletti. My two co founders. They were looking at place like twenty of our own machines in the facility and there was no good qualifications back then you had to go through like a random website that connects you like a guy running computers in his back shed and that'd be like the hosting site. Yeah we thought like at the time like. Let's go into invest in one of these Sites said own some of the infrastructure side where software guys. We built software products but let's vertically integrated with it infrastructure level so invested some money into the site An hour north of Kansas city missouri had four megawatts total of power But none of the power was flowing yet the building so we slowly build up to it. We took a colocation approach. And so you know a lot of the paints we went through. I think that's why. I think compass it's such a great product is because like all the pains be went through. I think would have been helped if we had compass at the time but we went through a very painful process of like having hundred fifty retail clients into an entirely new business posting their machines in a facility. That wasn't will build wasn't equipped to deal with the kansas city. Summer at just under capitalized from the start and so kind of all the everything kind of went wrong. That could've and it ended up going under. But i think You know is a very valuable learning experience for our team. The infrastructure side of the businesses incredibly hard and so. We've learned kind of the difficulties there. We wanna build like the best software products. We tend to support that but No way do. I wanna head down to a facility again and i work with nick foster like two. Am at night with pizza. Hut trying to wrack minors this man. Did you guys moved to the area while the city was operational. Yeah i was about like a two minute. Walk away in this like a motel. Yikes in this town of a few thousand people. It was just me like making anywhere. They came to own a few weekends. But i kinda went. Live down there for a bit trying to turn thing around and you know jumping into this location he is. I think it's really hard to manage that many clients if your new business you know. Maybe a professional company like has the process down pat but for a lot of these new colocation. They may have incredible like power rates could facility but just like interfacing with a hundred and fifty. Two hundred clients is incredibly tough. So that's the compass like an incredible amount of value to these types of operations. Is you can kind of partner with somebody to do that for you. And it solves a lot of your headaches there. It's difficult for people and when you have good technical knowledge and you want to build out a warehouse and host minors. There's a lot to it you know. I think that you know people will find cheap power and they don't understand that like having cheap power is okay but like there's cheap power everywhere. There's reasons that even though people find cheap power they have trouble standing up a facility whether itself mining or it's hosting for other people is because there's a lot goes into it. It's not just you know building a a chicken coop and putting up some racks getting getting people in you know as restraining people for compass you can tell like you can tell when you have a conversation with somebody like who's ready to host clients and who is just trying to jump on the gravy train like who understands that there's an opportunity now they just wanna you know. Stand something up and get some machines in. There's going to be people that are out there that are going to end up. Getting wrecked by jumping in some of these facilities are just not ready to handle them. And i mean like the the cores and some of those other guys for them. It's prohibitive to take smaller clients. They have they have a ton of space available. And i think they're targeting a different clientele well well-capitalized. They've got the ability to understand the financials properly. They know what they're getting into a few machines. Goff line it's not the end of their world just a different bag. But i think that more people than ever now looking to get into bitcoin mining and i just think that's gonna continue to grow company Where you know investing capital into these facilities but you are investing time and Your your brand to a degree at in your reputation. So there is that level like due-diligence which you wanna pick the winners and losers. I think that's really hard. Because you know at the time that we had mighty tack back in early. Eighteen via like a dozen competitors probably only a few of them made it guys like compute north and frontier who are our competitors at the time. They're the ones who kind of went on to have pretty good operations where islam You never heard of again. So it's it's a very hard job to pick those kind of coming facilities which ones are going to make it which aren't You hope you get like a computer. North style But there is a possibility. You get something else So yeah the. I'm kind of jealous of you like getting to watch the life cycle of those Facilities because i you know. It's pretty cool to be with people during their setup phase and then moving on to see them have success. I think as we get like three or four years in industry here. It's been amazing to like. Do that journey with a bunch of Fellow miners whether it's like pilot. Frontier foster boomer acts like it's really cool to see. I'm curious to see how things will shape up globally. Now it i would say not. As risky to host outside of north america. It'd be interesting to see how that narrative changes you know when you guys were going through the process of that facility folding. It's never easy thing so it's easy now because it's done right like it's in the past and you found success since then. Current success allows you to talk about previous failures. In a way that is yes heart wrenching but as you were going through that When the facility was the process of folding it was what twenty eighteen as the market was starting. Yeah exactly so. How was that pivot mentally for you guys as a team. I think this is the point. Where it in a startup. You always have to see if you're going to double down on your strategy endure approach or if you're going to pivot and like every business book or every. Nba teachers like business pivot. Learn that in the classroom because it's just so different when you're in that situation it's like you've just invested a year of your time into building this thing you still have some level conviction in it and even if it's not going right at one point you had very big aspirations for low like how do you eventually blake. Pull the cord pivot spend capital in that that time elsewhere And that's a hard decision. I think it's you know we've gone through. That lecture before with various products is like is this product worth continuing to back had pushed and I think that's like one of the things you learn. I think early on startups is like when to pull. It would continue on in double down for this minority like we kept quitting in dollars investments. We're doing cash. Calls the shareholder level to fund it. Eventually it was just like we can't keep pouring money into this thing. That's just burning money and so what we did was basically. We told all of our clients. Hey you can either ship your machines. Two lightspeed in ohio or compute north in nebraska will pay for the shipping. I just let us know where you wanna go. We gave them like a few weeks. Heads up that we're holding and so luckily our customers than get burned. Who's kind of just the employees shareholders which isn't great. Obviously but at least we kind of maintain those those customers relationships and made read it like screw them over to bad but it was a hard decision for

"A lot of these big brands do it very well, but it would have been interesting to see what their approach had been today if they had done this. So Domino's timing was really impeccable like I said before the it aligned very well with the recession which I don't think is a coincidence because it encouraged people to who are looking for value to go out. And get domino's a shot they thread that needle with a message and It would be very hard for any other major company to no doubt very interesting. Well, dominoes went on to revamp its image in focus on digital ordering and delivery Pizza Hut sort of take a slightly different tack they go with giving customers, tons of options in sauces and But at the same time, they're not as far ahead on the ordering technology, which seems like a really fancy way of saying your APP wasn't as good or you don't have a great way to track your delivery. For example, do you see this as a case of one company listening to its customer one company being out of touch or one company sort of making the case that we're listening to you more than the other guy I think what it comes down to is the difference in positioning for these brands because when you? Think About Pizza Hut you have to think about the fact that they are owned by yum brands, and so of course, yum brands spun off a pepsico and also owns KFC and Taco Bell they also have acquired this year the Habit Burger Grill based out in California. So what Pizza Hut is doing is a lot of their strategies are kind of in tandem with Taco Bell KFC is not to say that it prevents Pizza Hut from being able to invest in the infrastructure in the technology like dominoes has but I do. Think. It's more aligned with these other brands, and so they're trying to accomplish bigger digital goals with this portfolio of brands. Whereas Domino's is really laser focused that does come with a huge advantage I mean young brands you know believe last year within the last couple of years they just went out and bought an online ordering platform for Pizza Hut because they can do that he can throw around millions of dollars as the largest restaurant company in the world that's not necessarily something that domino's can go out and do but so. So Domino's has really built this organically over time built this infrastructure and for yum brands I think it's been you know something that's been a little bit more gradual overtime but look I really love. Yum brands I think TACO BELL KFC are to of course, very conic brands in their own, right doing very interesting things John Pizza Hut in a in a strange way has been kind of a weak link within yum brands for the last several years and I think it's just because it's still trying to figure this out still. Trying to figure out that identity as it goes from a primarily dine in restaurant experience to one that is very much oriented to delivery and carry out very interesting. Well, you've been awfully generous with your time..

So right off the Bat, we got Sergio Sergio hails from Chester Pennsylvania what is up Sergio thank you so much for commenting. He says neither ll Mama. PA pizza shops are the best but if I had to pick pizza hut all the way lot of exclamation points. In the continues. Partially, because I used to love to read books to get a free personal pan as a kid well. I must really hated reading as a child because I did not take advantage of said. Promotion. Then again, I did do a decent amount of sports as a child. So in my youth years. You know lot of end of the season Pizza Parties Pizza Hut. Because Pizza Hut was the spot. If you know you wanted to. If you wanted to sit down at a restaurant, you know dominoes I'm even know if they had a chair. In their establishments there about getting it to you Quick Pizza Hut. You know they had like a salad bar and stuff you know what I mean. So that was where. The banquet hall as like a little later you know that was like your year end like celebration like all right believes. We had a great time trying to hit a ball enjoy some fun dip, but it's time to just e pizza and never see each other again. That's what Pizza Hut does Ryobi as Sergio you are one, hundred, ten percent rate. I worked at like a mom and pop shop for four years. So I never delved too deeply into pizza hut were domino's because I got spoiled like an early age like my late teens early college years with like a mom and pop shop also on from like a little town in Delaware. County called Havertown. It's right outside of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and. I don't know what it is about our town behavior town has like an obnoxious amount of mom and pop pizza shops. Lake. The put it in perspective I worked at one that was near the high school in probably in three blocks three to five blocks. In every direction, there is another mom and pop pizza shop. and. That was just league on like that General Radius. You know you drive five minutes you're in another cluster of like three. Poppies shop. So on what is over maritime they love their pizza. So and that's true because I love pizza can't have enough I actually have for dinner like two nights ago almost just shadid. Another pie for myself tonight. But.

And we lost. Oh. Oh. I thought we had that one. and. And and what? The attorney Gulps. The jury awarded her seventy eight million dollars. The attorney weights, but there's only silence. And At he still there. Is the next day and in Domino's board room in Ann Arbor. Michigan Tom Monaghan just been briefed on the kinder-, case. He's not taking it well. Seventy eight million dollars for a fender bender. That's ridiculous. Downright insane. Monahan turns to add pair the company's chief counsel and you're fighting this right. You got appeal this we're putting in an appeal and I'm confident we can reduce the damages but Tom, this verdict. Will Open the floodgates we gotta drop the thirty minute delivery promise every new claim against us will depend on it. At least without it, we stand a chance. The thirty minute guarantee is Dominos Competitive Advantage is the pledge that took it from a cash strapped regional chain to multibillion dollar giant. And Monahan not giving it up without a fight. But this is nonsense we don't support. We're fast because our kitchens are fast. We're being crucified for something we're not doing domino's chief financial officer interjects. Ed's right we can't afford damages. This big were only just back on our feet. Financially our insurance premiums are bowel disor. Dropping the guarantees the wise play here. Monahan slumps into his chair and looks at his marketing chief. Well. What about you? What's the marketing damage from ending the guarantee? Right now, the bad publicity from these lawsuits overshadowing any benefits. I think we can safely lose thirty minute promise. We're already a household name and that won't change. Monahan looks dejected. He always regarded that thirty minute promises sacred. But he doesn't see another way forward. Fine. Drop Guarantee. Domino's thirty minute. Promise is history and. And the timing couldn't be worse because the newest challenger in the pizza war. Is Rising fast. It's nineteen ninety-four and outside of Papa John's in Memphis. Tennessee Pizza Hut Co founder Frank Carney gives his friend doubtful look. I can't believe I'll let you push me into this. It's been fifteen years since Carney quit pizza hut. Since then he's watched from the benches, but now his friend is trying to tempt him back into the kitchen. Inside the pizza, they ordered his real waiting. They sit on stools by the window and opened the box. Carney's eyes widen. It's perfectly cooked with and brown cheese and not a bubble in. The raised edge of the Pies Deep Brown outer crust is free of toppings and every slice is evenly fully loaded with juicy pepperoni slices. Corny notices a pot of sauce and pickled green pepper in the corners of the box I. was. that. About. The sauces for dipping your pizza it's like A. buttery garlic sauce. Unusual but it means I actually finished the crust. pepperoni. No idea, but it's a good gimmick. corny grabs a slice strings of cheese stretch and snap as he takes a massive bite. The melted cheese, the salty pepperoni and the Urbi sauce thrill is taste buds. Then comes the satisfying crunch of the crust. `Wow. Now. That's a pizza that crust it's like. It's like the best breadstick you ever ate told you I read their opening, two hundred stores a year, and they're really pushing the quality angle. I think they're going to be really big. Really big. You should buy a franchise. Well I told myself I was out of the pizza game, but I gotTa say this pizza here it reminds me how good Pizza Hut was when I ran it. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't tempted. Eat this every day. A few weeks. Later, the Pizza Hut co-founder gives into temptation. He is the Papa John's franchise for the Houston area. It's a PR victory for the fast growing pizza. Upstart. And a jab in the IDA Pizza Hut. Pizza Hut's cooking up a surprise of its own. It's early nineteen ninety-five and in Midtown Manhattan. Pizza Hut's AD agency BBDO is feeling the heat. In a meeting room creative director. Janet. Lions briefs our team. Pizza Hut says we're fired if we don't make this thing sell yeah. I know they say that every other week they're nervous. Okay. They big on this and I'm not sure even bay think this thing's a winner. That thing is stuffed crust pizza.

The scientists made it her mission to invent a crust. So irresistible, there wouldn't be a scrap leftover. It took three years to perfect recipe for cheese filled crusts and overcome the internal opposition. But now, Pizza Hut is just weeks away from unleashing stuffed crust on an unsuspecting nation.

"Delivering the goods. It's summer nineteen eighty in San Diego. A woman leads Tom Monahan into the room. He's dreamed of entering since founding domino's. The Office of Ray Kroc the man who built McDonald's. Monahan has long dreamt of meeting Crock who Monahan is kind of business guru. Starting in Nineteen seventy-two he ordered one of his assistance to call crocs office every month to ask for a meeting at last crock has caved and agreed to meet with this persistent pizza magnate. Monahan is looking to gather some wisdom from this fast food oracle. He wants to know if he should press ahead with his strategy for rapid expansion, simple menus and fast delivery. Mr crocs in their. Head right on in. Monahan feels a shiver of excitement run down his spine. Crock is sitting behind his desk. He's seventy eight and looks frail, but there's still a lively sparkle at his is. Mr Monahan. Sit down sit out I. Hear you're in the pizza game? Yes. Sir I am please call me Tom. I'm so honored to meet you I. Am A big mirer. In fact brought my copy of your book grinding it out. Would you mind signing it? CROCK takes it from Monahan outstretched hand inside the title page with a flourish. So pizza interesting business. How many pizzerias you got will only do delivery no Dina but we got nearly three hundred locations. We've had some tough years, but the business is strong now so. What's next. Expansion. I WANNA get to five thousand stores by nineteen eighty-five. CROCK raises an eyebrow. As a lot of stores very quickly Tom. You know it's no good just opening lots of stores. Any fool can do that. The trick is opening lots of stores while keeping your standards high and that's so tough. It'll make you crazy. A sure but I think my franchising approach will make it possible. We don't sell franchises. You see to get a domino's franchise. You have to run a domino's as an employee successfully for at least a year that way only people who know how to run a domino's the right way. One. Need System. So tell me why are you expanding? Well. I want domino's to be big. Really big the biggest I want domino's to be a household name like McDonald's. CROCK leans forward. Tom. Some Advice You already got it made. From. What you've told me Your Business can give you all the money you need. You should slow down, take it easy played safe. Don't gamble with what you got. Monahan stares in disbelief. Is this the same ray KROC said businesses. Rat Eat rat kill or be killed. Mr Crock? I I can't do that. I won't playing it safe wouldn't be any fun. crocs face breaks into a huge GRIN He grabs onto Monahan hand and start shaking it. That's what I hoped. You would say yes. Yes. Yes. You don't win by playing it safe Tom. You gotta go out there and get them. Monahan leaves on a high. It's taken twenty years of slog, but he's finally ready to follow and crocs footsteps and conquer the world. But to succeed. He's going to have to go through pizza. It's nineteen, eighty two, and in Tupelo Mississippi Pizza Hut restaurant manager, Frank Fowler helps another group of passengers into his hot air. Balloon Welcome aboard the cloud. Buster folks watch your step ma'am. Just a few final checks and all heavy in the air. Passengers loaded Valter flicks on the burner and cloud buster begins its ascent. Soon, the stripe balloon, it's giant Pizza Hut. Logo will be visible for miles. Fowler has been giving the citizens of to pillow free balloon rides all morning, and he's doing it out of spite. Spent months since the Pizza Hut Franchise Mississippi learned that Domino's was coming to Tupelo at first Ballard and see it as a threat after all domino's serves college campuses in military bases fowler figured it wouldn't stand a chance against Pizza Hut's restaurants and residential Tupelo. But then the promotional blitz began armies of people domino's uniforms, walking the streets and handing out coupons entire neighborhoods with domino's flyers, dangling off their doorknobs, local TV, and radio ADS featuring domino's driver with the kind of southern accent that goes down well with folks in Tupelo. Idea behind Fowler and his balloon with its Pizza Hut Streamer is to overshadow domino's opening day. He fires up the burner again and imagine how peed the dominoes team must be. But then a passenger interrupts his daydreaming. Hey. Is that applying? Fowler squint into the Sun. The guys. Right is a crop duster heading right for them. You think he's seen. US Fowler smiled of course we're hard to miss. This cloud buster seventy feet tall fifty feet in diameter it'll change course. But the plane doesn't change course it keeps coming. Valor maintains his smile, but he's getting uneasy now. The passengers look worried if the plane gets any closer, he'll be able to see into the cockpit. Suddenly plane banks right to reveal the banner being carried behind it. Fowler's jaw drops as he reads the words. Domino's pizza delivers. As the plane circles, his Balloon Fowler sees the camera flashes on the ground below and frowns. The press photographer, his boss invited to take snaps of his balloon stunt now has a way better story to sell tomorrow's papers. With the publicity and promotional blitz Domino's lands in Tupelo with a bang within weeks the new store delivering more than ten thousand dollars a pizza a week and for Domino's it's proof that delivery pizza can now work anywhere. When Domino's I tried breaking into residential areas in nineteen sixty,.

"It's August nineteen, seventy five and in a hotel in Ann. Arbor Michigan Tom Monahan stands at the front of a large conference room. He's wearing a green baseball jacket and has a stop watch in his hand. He peers through his thick framed glasses at the domino's store managers before him on the table in front of each of them are mounds of dove pots of sauce and plastic tubs of cheese and shot mushrooms. Monahan places his thumb over the button on his stopwatch. Okay people it's competition time. Now. I might have mentioned something about delivering pizza and thirty minutes before. The managers, smirk and laugh he sure has in fact. Monahan. Never stops haranguing them about it. The secret to delivering in thirty minutes is in the kitchen it shouldn't take more than thirty seconds to get a pizza ready for the oven thirty seconds. Got It. But I know some of you can do better than that. You want to show me what you can do. Yeah. You're right. I. WanNa. Mushroom Pizza On, my mark three, two, one go. To Room burst into light managers, furiously rollout dough spread sauce layer cheese sprinkle mushrooms in a spiral towards the center of the Pie. A hand shoots up. Monahan checks the stopwatch. Sixteen seconds. We've got a winner. More hands shoot up. From the Stop Watch passes half a minute. Only half a dozen managers are left and they only need seconds more. Monahan leads the applause. Well done well done. Want Domino's to be known for having the Fastest Pizza Hut, Pizza Pizza Fast Pizza. Yes. That's the core of Domino's, and it's why one day. We're going to be bigger than. Pizza. Now I know that sounds crazy. Got Seventy stores they've got something like sixteen hundred but I'm serious. Sure. It won't happen this year even next year. But we can do it and we are going to do it. While Domino's is talking big. Pizza Hut is about to actually get bigger. Since fixing, it's early seventies, financial woes, frank, Carney's taken over from his brothers Pizza Hut CEO and ever since he's been seeking to broaden its horizons. Corny knows that at some point Pizza Hut. Of New markets in the US and when that happens, he knows it'll be harder to maintain the company's stellar growth. To prepare for that day, he tries replicating Pizza Hut's success by dreaming up new fast food concepts like Taco kid restaurants and flaming steer steakhouses. But Pizza Hut's franchisees snubbed the new brands they keep opening new Pizza Hut's rather than gambling on the company's unproven Taco steakhouse chains. Customers shunned the new sidelines to. Unlike the pizzerias with their welcoming decor and layout these latest fast food concepts. Solis ideas cooked up an accompany conference room with little feel for what will work on the ground. So with the plan to spin up more chains of bust. Carney changes direction. And starts looking for a rival. To. Merge, with. Its late nineteen, seventy six and in the Pizza Hut conference room in. Wichita. Carney is updating the board on his hunt for merger partner. I'm afraid of hit a wall Sambo's restaurant chain is backed out of talks not sure why Hardee's was initially interested, but they don't want to be a merger of equals I contacted some others but no interest. We're out of. Options. The board members look glum. They're getting uneasy about the growing threat from a number of regional pizza players like God. Little caesars Domino's. Diversifying into other areas of fast foods seemed like a good defense. But. Then a board member pops up. Frank Den. Pepsico. Sniff around US awhile back. Yeah. But but that was an acquisition approach. I know but. Thank you through. We'd be the only fast food chain within PepsiCo. We become their fast food division and we'd be able to use their resources to by other chains. We could achieve the same aims. Soon after Pizza Hut offers itself to PepsiCo. And Pepsi Pepsico's more than willing to talk. Pepsico Wants Pizza Hut for two reasons. The first is that it'll get pepsico the chance to become a force in the rapidly growing fast food market. The other reason is that by owning Pizza Hut Pepsi Breaks Coca Cola's stranglehold on the Fast Food Soda World After months of Negotiations, Pizza Hut, and PepsiCo settle on a price. Three hundred and fifteen million dollars. It's November nineteen, seventy seven and in Pepsico's headquarters in purchase. New York Pizza Hut's marketing chief, Sam. MOYER's is presenting the chain strategic plan to the snacks and soda giants top brass. It's been less than a week since the buyout and Moyers is determined to impress his new bosses. Silent summary We want to promote our carry out business move, accelerate overseas, grove, and broaden our menu to attract customers from non pizza rivals. Pepsico President. Andrew Pearson rises from his chair and walks to the front of the room. Well. There's a lot of interesting things in there. But while you're planning the perfect crime, you should be knocking off some gas stations along the way. Let's get some short term wins in there too. It's important to remember the core business. Warriors smiles. Pepsico's got a reputation as masters of marketing with a killer instinct. And he's eager to soak up their expertise. Any suggestions. Well. Godfathers. Is your biggest threat, right? Now let's focus on taking them out. Spoken like a real hitman. The Pizza Hut team grin and nod. They also see godfathers as the main threat. It's dining chain that's been growing fast by pushing pizzas heavily loaded with toppings. But Pizza Hut and Pepsico are focusing on the wrong target. They think domino's is nothing more than a fringe player a chain limited to delivering pizza to college students. But the scrappy Michigan Company? is about to unleash a blitzkrieg.

Nineteen seventy two the entire geostrategic. Political situation. Changed almost overnight. Richard Nixon whose breakthrough visit to China had led to the triangular diplomacy that had given the United States. The leverage it needed for detente was under attack and the nature of his response. The coverup proved far more damaging. The break in itself had been newspaper. Reporters relentless pursuit of the story forced the Nixon administration down a path of ever-greater denials deceit and cover-ups Washington Post reporters. Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein were driving the ever-increasing scandal. There's an anecdotal report. That one of them once said that all Nixon had to do was take a cocktail Napkin and writes something to the effect of. I did not authorize and was not aware of the break in but the people who did were members of my administration and that means I bear full responsibility for the consequences. Something like that and that would have been the end of the Watergate scandal at least according to Woodward and Bernstein but that was not the path that Nixon chose and so what Nixon successor described as our long national nightmare continued day after day. Week after week. Revelations testimonies erased tape recordings and all the rest the Kremlin watched as Nixon was drowning before their eyes and they would wait and see if America would go down with two years one month and twenty three days after the break in on the sixth floor of Twenty.

You could tell that Gerald Ford thought it unseemly somehow but wave. He did as Marine. One climbed into the gloom flew behind the granite of the Washington Monument and disappeared below the distant treeline. No one knew it yet. But with the very real chance to end the Cold War in the mid nineteen seventies for Richard Nixon's departure that it added another fifteen long and increasingly dangerous years to the Cold War.

While the shock of Nixon's resignation and departure earlier on that momentous day had held the nation's spellbound and his plainspoken honesty and humility were immediately apparent. I am acutely aware that you have not elected me as your president by your balance so I ask you to confirm me as your president with your prayers. My fellow Americans.

"Up that's the Wa wa. I prefer what Dick. Yeah to turn this little band party. I actually prefer drum mets ado. Why how your regular Kurt? Hamp Kirk Hammett and Lars Ulrich u. Two members of metallica is one of the only bands you know anything about Mike. Yeah a that and the Dave Clark Five. Let's get to our final thoughts on Pizza Hut. So we'll each give our closing argument if you will our our our overall evaluation of this chain and then end by giving it a fork rating from zero to five Gendi Angelo. You our guest your thoughts your fork rating after your maiden voyage to Pizza Hut so I just want to preface this by saying feel bad about this because I feel like I'm bringing a lot of like personal baggage to this rating because for a long time. Pizza Hut when I was a kid I never went but I would see commercials for it and it looked so amazing and I was like that looks like ideal pizza to me so I had it like really built up in my mind and then you know I got the dip- writing get a regular pizza like you know didn't Experience Pizza Hut. Its fullest alike. But here's my summation and my rating. When I got it delivered. They left it on my doorstep and it was wrapped in a giant trash bag inexplicably. Because it was raining or anything they just put it all in a trash bag and left it for me as if to say like we know and after eating it. I was Kinda like yeah. I didn't really need any of this. It just felt like such like a you know like a hollow rendering of the food that I wanted and so I think I'm GONNA give it one. Four One. Four album is that crazy. Has anyone ever given one fork before you Joe? What not not only has anyone given one four before. They've given it to the exact same restaurant neo Campbell in his first one fork review of a chain reviewed Pizza Hut and and gave it a single for the for the first time it had happened in the podcast again. It's happened again to pizza. This this is my break. This blows my mind because there's clearly. There's clearly something wrong here. I mean there's just clearly. Yeah Wow that's why I think the. Just try jumping to mind from here to lease. I'll transition right into it. I think Pizza Hut needs its transformation into debt. What's his name? Devon Devon Devon Sawa and you wanted to be a hot little boy. Pizza Hut needs to transform into. Its little hot boy. Version of itself. I think that I honestly think that Pizza Hut needs to poll. The same thing that Domino's did which even though it was bullshit like you did notice a difference in Domino's and they're like hey we fucked upper longtime but we're trying it just the taste of it now which to me. It used to be like the big fast food chain that to me. Didn't and look. I know that there's a lot of nostalgia tied to this but it was the one that it's like. Oh we're going to power this parlor. Jesus this tastes more like actual sitdown pizza. It doesn't like Domino's is domino's and I love it but it is what it is in pizza. Hut had like a different feel to it. Felt like you were getting a pan cooked pizza that you could taste the butter. You could taste the crunch you can taste. The ingredients tastes good. It's not the same anymore I I also I should just get into what else I of. Course I got those Dia Pepsi's but I also got those garlic stuffed garlic which was actually probably one of the highlights scarlet not stuffed with cheese in them with Marinara sauce. Those are pretty good nick. My and then of course I told you about the Pan Pizza and in the wings which the wings were just okay. They weren't great but they were my own problem with the big dipper. It's it kind of gets cold too fast. They got there. It was kind of coal. It wasn't hot like yeah. Whatever the big dipper socked. I think the big dipper was not good spoon. Man's butter the night naked goes to Hershey. Chocolate chip. Cookie came tin came in a little Tin Tin Pan. I WANNA cool. I put it in the oven. Nick might my Easter dinner that I had solo. I had leftover honey baked ham that we reviewed a week ago and I see he loves him. Garlic knots and I had some of that chocolate chip cookie again for dessert and it was great. The chocolate chip cookie is good. It's a good. It's a especially if it's hot. And if he has some ice cream in the fridge some vanilla ice cream naked which I know you love it a little scoop vanilla on there and eat it up. It's great delight farm. I'M GONNA go not gonna go hard as Jen on it. I'M GONNA go two and a half forks but I think it really needs two and a half almost seems too high for what it was for. That was eighty six dollars. It was a ton of food. But I mean you didn't have to spend eighty six dollars. Nick has because you got was science science but I mean I wouldn't pay twenty bucks for that it sucked. It was a bummer. Why they all think yeah. It was food that was printed off of a computer is just like it. Looks like one hundred percent percent. Yes Three D. Printer food tastes nothing. You know what I'm sorry to work. Quarter forks nick. Two forks one time. Yeah these are these are these are distressingly. Low scores for the baht. Yeah that's a bummer. If you're the number one pizza chain in the world you got the cash to fuck in. Make your your you to make a quality product. You must be doing something right there. The number one pizza chain in the world. Yeah much of that just comes from being Pizza Pizza Hut having that title on the inertia of continuing you can just dominate when when you reach a certain size because because you are that big I mean. That's subway subway is the best so I want to return to our Buddy Jonathan. May's reporter for Restaurant Business Magazine. He has an article dated February. Six Twenty Twenty Pizza Hut. Us OVERHAULS. It's executive team now. Obviously this is before corona virus completely changed the landscape of of everything economically but particularly the food service industry. We we've all witnessed out been transformed and of course shout out to all of you out there who are working food service or just have to work at all these days. If you have to go into your place of business you are essential worker. I hope you're getting hazard pay. I hope you're getting safety equipment because a lot of these chains are not providing that for their workers and that really sucks but this is the article from from Jonathan. May's pizza is hoping a trove executives from sister chain. Kfc can help struggling us. Business regain its footing. So they're adding three executives from KFC yum brands owns KFC TACO. Bell Pizza Hut. They're aware that they are in peril. Here's a quote from from CEO David Gibbs who oversees the entire company. Were urgently taking steps to place. The brand on a firmer footing to he had that. Hoffman's turn around is one of the executives experience with KFC and is experiencing sooner packaged goods. He worked with proctor and gamble for nineteen years before moving to KFC in two thousand fourteen. Make him ideally suited to work on pizza. Hut's turnaround so we'll see Mitch. They might be going down the road that Domino's went down. And maybe they're gonNA they're going to right the ship. Maybe you know after the this Kobe. Nineteen crisis raw washes over the the entire economy. Maybe a out of the ruins of that that maybe they can. They can have something of a comeback. Maybe they can have the dominance story or you know in more recent years different different sector but also in chain restaurants. The Burger King Story as we keep saying Burger King. His Back Burger King made a comeback. And I can do that. You know what I mean. The test is time you know. Just like the Popeye's chicken sandwich. It's true is really time. Is that the same. What's going to be an all time? Great I duNNo. It's very good right now. I like it a lot. You GotTa wait. We're going to see if it has staying power. We're going to see a pizza. Hut can right the ship. Nick you know what I where I don't have too much. Confidence is that they took away all the power lers. I can't say the word power. Oh my God parlors. They took away all the pizza parlors. There should be harlow worked. I worked at the pool season right. How records did sound like you said power chords me. A corn poppies to go down to the power. I think that taking away the sit down restaurants was a bad sign right off the bat. I felt like yeah. They were prioritizing money. I know that I know that in a lot of places those weren't doing any business for them but to take all away. You can't sit down at a Damn Pizza Hut puffy anymore. Yeah the Fuck Outta here. You're making bad decisions. You've made decisions. They didn't know their worth. They didn't do they workaholics. We are opposites. Were right next door to a target. We would walk around the target every day at lunch just to exercise got us. Yeah this next door to the lot. No in Van Nuys way out but they had a pizza hut kiosk in there and I remember being so sad. I saw that because I was like no. It's supposed to be a place same thing same thing. Subway subway started adding kiosks and the overall product quality declined. I will say I like the big pizza more than either of you. I thought it was decent just more of an appetizer than an entree and I thought the wings were were solid and so I'm going to go higher than either of you and I will say the service was great. The the you know that they were the chain was great. They they made the order promptly and they were. They were super friendly. Great physical distancing inside the location where I went to go pick it up. Everyone seemed to have protective equipment. So that was I just want to say I just want to be cleared. The Delivery Woman. Who helped who helped. I got her name and now I forget it. What a piece of Shit I am. She was great and she also seemed. It seemed like she had because she she was like she was like. Do you mind helping me out. And I was like no not at all and she seemed like she was working like crazy so again. You're eighty seven dollar order. Sir. I've got this in a wheel barrel and I ate it out of that wheelbarrow but I just want to say we of course are very grateful to to all the people who are delivering food and making food still. Of course that's my. My issue is with the corporation itself. The places bad now the Ip Pizza Hut five four. They really were. It really was a great customer service. This variance yes. The product needs a little bit of improvement. I am going to go a little a little higher than you guys. I'm going to say. This is a three fork chain. This was a three four experience. But Hey maybe hopefully better days ahead are are for Pizza Hut. Hopefully they can. They can get things go on where they're not the next time we revisit. Pizza Hut our guest is also given at one fork third time. There's only one. It's only been one forks nick. I it's only works. Guess boy hey wait. That was Pizza Hut. It's time for a segment. I've got a food related survey and Mitch and Jen will compete to guess the results. Let's play how the family food.

"TACO Bell also under the umbrella as well as recently reviewed the habit which were reviewed with our Buddy Emmy Block. Nick introduced me to the term APOPKA. Use it way too much and the largest pizza chain in the World Pizza Hut technically. How so how about that? Yeah very very popular in in Asia and the Indian subcontinent. So Pizza Hut as has really domino's I think bigger in the US but pizza hut is bigger worldwide. So your first visit here Jen. They have one thing they are offering right now. The big dipper pizza. Now I'll read the menu description of the big dipper pizza. Nearly two feet of Dipa Pizza on Pan style crust. The big dipper pizza comes without sauce under the toppings but his served with four dipping sauce cups to Marinara. One ranch and one honey. Bq So this is a dry boy. Mitch yes dry boy in big mistake. Honestly it's it's an interesting as it was eating it and I want to hear your thoughts but I was like this to me feels like an appetizer. Yeah way that this is presented. Feels like I would get like pizza bread as a starter at like a Chili's or something like that but but jen a let's. Let's start with the big dipper pizza. Which I assume you also got I did get it and yeah it just like the flavor of it it was like eating just focaccia like didn't even taste like cheese or pepperoni. I got like the half cheese. Hafer media and the only distinction between the cheese and Pepperoni was that like eating pepperoni. One felt like you had like a little piece of crunchy paper onto up like a nothing day and yeah I think like it should have had sauce on it and then the dipping sauces were just like some fun extra flavor. It's a really weird concept and I agree with you that it is that that you know the and by the way we should mention half cheese half pepperoni. Those are the only two topping options. You can't just get any topping. You want on the big dipper pizza. You Ha you get cheese or Pepperoni or half and half and so. It's pretty restrictive in terms of what you can actually get which I don't quite understand because nothing about it. Seems like the Normal Pizza Hut Crust. Just in square form factor. I'm not sure why you're why it seems like it's made to order. I'M NOT SURE WHY. They're so restrictive on which topping combos you can have you know. It's not like put sausage and mushrooms on this that it would be like Whoa. This doesn't work anymore. It just be like a different way of having it but yeah so and I did prefer the Pepperoni even though I'm someone who really likes cheese pizza but she's here just didn't have enough going on. It was just. It was just like a cheesy cheesy bread. I don't know what did you think which I thought it was so appetizers I imagine if you order this for like a couple people how disappointing it would be besides the fact that you besides the fact that like the idea of dipping thing is not a great idea at the moment where you're like everyone's dipping into a cup while graded coins. It's terrible thing to be promoting at this time. Yes unless you're eating eating it alone which which sadly I was just eating it alone but It was a didn't even feel like a pizza. It sucked yeah I was. I was worried because I know it. Let me put this a different way. So now we're very excited to have this because we're like. Oh we haven't really just had pizza during this period when we've been in lockdown and so it was just like Oh man we're going to get a pizza. This is fucking great and I think we we enjoyed it like L. Say despite efficiencies they overall enjoyed it because it was pizza like enough but it certainly didn't scratch the itch of like. Oh man this is. This is pizza to me. It was just like well. I still want to get a pizza now and I'm sorry well I say..

"But yeah my twitter. Handle is famously. Jen Lakes Pizza. That's correct so you know I do really enjoy it while I was going to say Nick. That just like how you've never had a burger at Wendy's you've never had pizza from pizza. Hut never had this week's chain. I've never had pizza. Hut's wild crazy to me realize your. Oh sorry no God bless i. There weren't that many around where I grew up in fact I don't know if there were any and it was also like a more of a sit down restaurant at the time because that's a big thing. That Pizza Hut was the parlor originally. Was this cutlass this big structure and you could sit down there and you can get some pitchers soda for the kids and pitchers. Abreu dog for mom and dad and it was. It was a real who your salad bar yet. It was a it was a blast roundtable pizza. We went to in in my hometown. That was the the pizza parlor of choice but love a classic Parlor. And then they you know tail is all time. They start reducing store footprints so that they can have them these more kiosks sized delivery and takeout ones and locations and then the parlors went the way the Dodo which is a shame. I like a parlor that we had we had. We celebrate your birthday party at a parlor. That's right I mean I think that you you got you sadly missed the BEST PIZZA IN MY MIND. Which is a bummer. Y- you know where we can ask. Jenry ask her what her go to pizza. Places where we'RE GONNA ask. I was Gonna ask thank you much. I was going to ask your so. You didn't have Pizza Hut's around you. What did you go to for pizza as a kid? So I was a huge domino's person and you know what still am I love Domino's I love it. It's just so great. It's just so easy and so you know it's like the perfect level of fine it's good. I think it's different from if you want Domino's pizza. It's its own thing. Yeah do you wanNA lavish because those are great but yeah I was like a big domino's person and then we had to local chains. There were huge one was called Pizza Palace in ardmore and then Bella Italia Awesome ardmore and I think is not there anymore but still is we. Area has great great slices. I feel like I feel like it's a good pizza spot. Yeah the the East Coast in general it. Yeah I had a I. We never had a local pizza place. We went to when I was a kid. It was always a chain and the chain actually are two. We were a pizza hut family. Domino's was something that I would get at a friend's place but if you're getting takeout pizza we get Pizza Hut. If we were getting there was a pizza that opened in nearby nearby. Our place that was right next to a Jack in the box and those were frequent spots for the family and for a little while ago in particular. And then the and then we're going to have a sit down like a fun time that we're there we're going to the roundtable pizza and we're having ourselves up a little sit down pizza gathering and I was playing cadillacs and dinosaurs. Arcade machine with some greasy fingers. Yeah but we had a lot of pizza pizza hut growing up your fingers off. You know you were fucking people. Were touching the joystick. And they're fucking hands refine advocacy. You you fucking rub. That's where I that's what that helps me. That helps me in the game. That's my trick. That's my secret. I'm always greasy so we would go. We go to Pizza Hut a lot and I. Yeah I I know if you've seen my screen so midges changes background to be in bladders. Museum bothers the owl behind him. And actually this is kind of amazing framing Mitch. You have an exclamation point over your head in the game also bladders is asleep which is accurate depiction of what people like when talking to you.

No Longer a Pizza Maker, Softbank Portfolio Company Zume Flounders

"If you listen to our recent miniseries we crashed. You heard a lot about Softbank. The giant investment firm that funded. We work and we talked about Softbank here last week in our episode about brainless. That's the consumer goods startup that Softbank recently shuttered today. We're looking at yet. Another Softbank portfolio firm that launched with a lot of hype but that is struggling. Now that would be zoom the Silicon Valley company that promised to transform the pizza business by using robots to cook your Pepperoni Pie enough from a tech enabled warehouse somewhere. No from a mobile kitchen while on route to your living room cooking on a delivery truck. Zoom said. You'd get your pizza fast in the ultracompetitive pizza delivery business. A couple of minutes shave from your delivery time. GimMe all the difference for pizza chains competing to win your cash. Robotic pizza making sounded like a good idea. Softbank certainly thought so. The firm run by fame venture capitalist Masayoshi Sun invested three hundred. Seventy five million dollars zoom. The money came from its Softbank Vision Fund notably the one that funded. We work in brainless lists the ill-fated Company. We told you about last week. At the end of two thousand eighteen investors valued soon pizza at more than two billion dollars even more striking only three months ago. Ceo Alex Garden was arguing. It's true value was double that you were seeking additional new funding evaluation of four billion dollars. According to recode from what great heights we fall and hurt workers along the way in early. January zoom laid off three hundred sixty people eighty percent of its staff it closed zoom pizza locations around Silicon Valley those robots. Don't Cook Pizza Anymore now. Zoom is positioning. The company is a robot powered supplier to the pizza industry. That is it's attempting to sell compostable pizza boxes and automation systems to its former rivals. Domino's pizza hut among other pizza chains. It's also pushing into other parts of the food industry with its mobile kitchens but reports since say Zoom has run into even more problems with its model. It turns out that it's compostable.

"Things. Anyway, it all it all worked out in the end. Nobody can prove that Pizza Hut was to blame. They still insist that they were just they're buying cheese shares like everybody else, but I'm, it was all very mysterious. Wow. All right. Well, we just learned a lot about cheese and cheese prices next up is Animas records. Okay. Well, four years after Pizza Hut feature, Donald Ivana Trump in an ad. They actually made an attack ad against Hillary Clinton of all people. What at the time Bill Clinton is finishing up his presidency and Hillary Clinton is preparing to run for Senator of New York. She hadn't actually announced her candidacy yet, but Pizza Hut decided to run this ad featuring a woman who looked awful lot like Hillary Clinton here is the ad. I gotta tell you this big New Yorker is the quintessential New York pizza what the post to being Griffin with. So much cheese. You've got the phone as if I may on it is New York, big sixteen inches a crawl, how do I know so much about New York, Pete Sampras, New York. I wanna be your next. The big enough to feed all you can stitch very anew a price. Nine ninety nine. What I think is is. Pizza from pizza. Another one of the best pieces under one roof. I wanna be your said. That was really good. We. This was an actual ad that appeared on TV. Yeah, so she was expected to announce her candidacy any day. And of course she would go on to win that seat and hold it for the next eight years. But at that point she had no claim as they said to this New Yorker style pizza. What makes this even more controversial is that New York City mayor, Rudy Giuliani was expected to announce his bid to run against her as the Republican and one of his top campaign backers. A guy named Kenneth land Goan was on the board of pizza Hut's, parent company, tricon foods. Well, it turns out that tricon gave a couple thousand dollars to Giuliani's exploratory committee. So of course, the Scott political, Hillary Clinton came out and said that this ad amounted to an illegal campaign contribution and you guys saw the ad. It was pretty against her. Yeah, I can almost imagine a saying like paid for by Julia. Johny Pizza Hut. Yeah, definitely. But then of course, Giuliani and land gone came out and said, there was no wrongdoing and Pizza Hut said it was just tongue in cheek fun, but you can't ignore the political coincidences here. Yeah, I mean, don't you feel like we're living in a vortex of all these figures from the nineties and we, we have all appeared in Pizza Hut. Ads. We have Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton, Dennis Rodman, who is now like an ambassador to North Korea is in a Pizza Hut ad. You have Rudy Giuliani making a comeback, really if you want to see the future of politics just watch Pizza Hut, as I know makes me wanna eat more pizza instead of watching the news now, I guess that's the ads working. All right. Lastly, we have Claire Rawlinson who found another detail that we had to cut out of our episode but as being resurrected now. Yeah. Well, we've just spent what twenty five minutes also talking about these particular ad Wade, Donald Nevada at the center of it. But there was another add another stuff cross to add that very, very almost happened, but never went through and I'm gonna explain how. So you'll remember Janet and Michael friends on Madison Avenue. Humaid the Donald von add, you know, when they were considering controversial celebrities that might might for a good like, Ooh, I doing something wrong like this, something really soil see about that. Pavers was another option for a stuff cross add the legendary, the disgraced Cincinnati Reds, baseball plan infamous than for life in nineteen ninety nine forbidding on games that he played in and that he managed as Janet and Michael. They had this ad perfectly planned out and they told us exactly what it would have looked like. So you got to imagine a typical American street main street USA. The light is dappling down onto the street. There's a Pete and the the cute little seven year old with a baseball mitt and the glove. And he looks like Ron Howard in. Mayberry. And so the kids walking down and says, Mr., rose, I just don't get it. You know, you had one of the highest records of anybody in baseball, and he starts reciting each one of his individual records. He says, well, Mr. rose. Why? Why aren't you on the baseball hall of fame? He says, well, Jimmy, and he, of course, bus turn. He takes out a box of Pizza Hut from nowhere as I guess. It's because I eat my pizza the wrong way crossed. I. And then you go to the product shot and you come back and he says, so Jimmy, do you like stuff crust pizza? And he says, you bet, Mr. rose wrong choice of words, Jimmy wrong choice of words that would have been so good. Innocent little Jimmy, that twist. So right before that commercial was filmed, it was all planned out ready film. Literally the not before paint. Rowers could not resist, and he late the story to the Wall Street Journal that he was back and he was going to pay tot commecial which by the way is like the most hilarious way of announcing that you back on the scene, but the him leaking that led to a hot having to cancel the ad, Hades spoiled the surprise and taken away all of the news value from it. And so as a hot lost half a million dollars cancelling that shoot that already paid for to the production team. And I think this shows that whatever you think of Donald Trump, he knows how to play this game in a way that Pete Rose says, daddy's so true, but fine. In fact on, I just know that you will appreciate the stand with your love of puns. Papers also tried on his relationship in the way the Donald Nevada do, and there was a reality shore made you may know it about Pete Rose and his wives pate rose hits and misses. Am rose by any other name. Oh, see. All right. Not like come on my only skill or problem.
