James Lindsay: Marxist Tactics Exposed
"They know there's legitimate issues around civil rights and especially that there have been in the past So they hide in those things as radical splinter cells And then they erupt out these very intentional deliberate tactics But the key point of the lecture I gave the parliament in Europe was that when we look at western Marxism we have to look at Marxism as a system that attacks civilizations or societies And it's going to find where it can get in So in peasant societies like you had in Russia in 1917 and China like you had in 1949 it can get in through class It can work its way in through class division But in the west the marxists of the 20th century admitted it won't get in through class in America in Western Europe because we have class mobility If you work your ass off you can rise up in the structure as the marxists themselves said we see the capitalism allows people to build a better life that stabilizes the working class so they won't be a revolutionary class So they have to use the same motif but they put it in a different location So I said you don't want to think of it like with animals like with genus versus species The genus is cats in this case it's Marxism but if you think of genus as cats you got tigers you got lions you got house cats you got bobcats You got pumas They're all different kinds of cats but they're all still cats Here Marxism is one type of attack on a civilization One type of modality to take over sees control of the means of production and ruinous society And you've got class based Marxism which is classical Marxism You've got race based Marxism which is critical race theory You've got what's considered normal based Marxism and that's queer theory and the gender theory You've got based on men and women patriarchy or whatever you want to call it you got Marxist feminism It's the exact same attacks the exact same structure the exact same goals and the goal is actually just to seize power In whatever they want to do after they get power is what we're all going to get which looks a lot like eating bugs and living in pods

"Sign a bill if he gets one on legalization. But it has to get to his desk in the first place, that all depends on where the state goes politically in November. Well, we'll watch out for it. Ryan faircloth, reporter for the star tribune, thanks so much for joining us. Yeah, thank you. Composer Deborah wicks la puma has written music for a pigeon, an elephant, a pig, and a colony of naked mole rats. That's what you do when you work with mo willems. The writer of don't let the pigeon drive the bus and other children's classics. Now, la puma songs are on HBO Max in the animated version of Willem's naked mole rat gets dressed. The underground rock experience, as NPR's Elizabeth Blair reports. First, why naked mole rats? They're yucky. They're outsiders inherently. Mo Willem says he's a fan of terrible ideas. It's the same thing as a pigeon. Everybody else is going to do just wonderful bears and bunnies and all these adorable fluffy things. So take the terrible thing because then it's yours. What was mogan to do to navigate the slightly problematic word naked? Naked mole rat gets dressed is Deborah wicks lip puma's third musical with mo willems, and then I got his first draft of the lyrics. And they were naked naked naked naked naked mole rats. Maybe more so and I was like, okay, this is how we're gonna work. We're just embracing it. We're repeating this word. And everyone's gonna get over it, right in the opening song. In the story, a naked mole rat named Wilbur, played by Jordan Fisher, discovers clothes, in a culture where their band. What is that? Is that a hat? Would it be wrong to try it on? He's summoning the courage to put on those clothes. And once he does, he really likes it. A shirt. Cheering the dirt. Who would it hurt? If I try it on. Like I kept crying when I was writing it because because even though obviously the song is about a rodent who's putting on clothes, I mean, it's very silly, but it touches those deeper themes of discovering who you are, embracing who you are, and then having that courage to live that life. Is it time to get dressed? Can these close make me whole will they make me my best kept close me the most when willems and la puma were thinking about the kinds of songs they wanted for their rock opera. They listened to a lot of their favorite music from the 80s, Elton John, queen, AC/DC, the who, king Floyd, for example, we don't get no education. And that was one that I loved because it encompassed kind of a community oppression. You can hear echoes of Pink Floyd's famous song in Li pumas proclamation nations. 'cause if I get so excited she won't ride for you like a sweater born to a Mexican mother and a father who grew up in Southern California, Deborah wicks la puma was a navy brat, whose family moved around a lot, Europe, South America, in her late teens, la puma dreamt of becoming a rockstar. She was in a band called technical difficulty. And then I sort of came to the realization, you know, I'm not quite cool enough to be a rockstar, but I might be cool enough to be a composer for musical theater. After college, she ended up in Washington D.C. with her husband in the early 1990s. That's when she began a longtime partnership with playwright Karen zacarias They've done ten shows together, many inspired by their shared LatinX heritage, like Ferdinand the bull, looking for Roberto Clemente, and Cinderella eats rice and beans. Ain't no skin zakaria says one of the reasons she likes working with la puma so much is that she's not afraid to throw out a song she's written if it's not working. She has no ego in the sense of like she comes and listens. Does it mean she doesn't have opinions. But she comes in with an open heart and always wants to make the work better. Zachary as jokes that she was a little worried when lipuma started working with mo willems. And I was like, Batman's going to snap her away from me. And sure enough, I'm so happy to share that he was like puma with you mo, but just know that she was my collaborator first. Get to it. To bring your

Is Trailblazer Rickie Fowler Headed for the LIV Tour?
"What we can definitely say without a doubt in our minds about Liv golf is that they are getting personalities, right? Remember when Ricky and I are the same age. Remember when Ricky came out 12 years ago and everybody wanted to talk about Ricky, that was it because he was the first guy that wasn't wearing khaki pants with triple pleats and cuffs and huge baggy shirts. He was the first guy that revolutionized kind of the look of the golfer. And he caught a lot of shit for it for years. And now what? Now what's everybody doing? Now what's everybody wearing when they go to the course outrageous looking bullshit, they've got khaki pants or not even seen anymore. No one wears khakis anymore, but Ricky started all that. People forget that Ricky was kind of a trailblazer 12 years ago on the modern golfer. And he's still relevant today. People, Ricky's not relevant, hadn't been relevant for years. Bullshit. Ricky's been pumas number one salesman until Bryson came along for 8 or 9 years. So I think it's as smart of the live tour to go after these guys that not only are they going to play great golf, their personalities and they're going to talk to the media and they're going to put content on social media. That's not going to get pulled down by they don't even say that their employer. They're 10.99. So they're pulling their shit down. It's not going to get pulled down or any of this dumb shit that's been happening on the PGA

"Have you ever wondered what the world looks like from the eyes of animals? An immense world written in red by Pulitzer Prize winning science journalist Ed young. Takes us on a fascinating journey that will transform the way you see the world. Through every animal's unique sensory bubble, we learn what B, C and flowers, what songbirds here and their tunes and what dogs smell on the street, an immense world is steeped with science but suffused with magic. An immense world by Ed young is available everywhere, audiobooks are sold. This is scientific American 62nd science. I'm Ashley papp. Mountain lions are now posing for their close ups. Researchers based in the greater Yellowstone National Park area have figured out a new way to identify these cats by using facial recognition. And this method is proving to be a better way to monitor these highly elusive creatures. Mountain lions are just really, really hard to directly observe. They're just so cryptic and secretive. And so we've had to find these noninvasive methods. They're often called to get information about a mountain lion population. That's Peter Alexander, a research biologist based in Kelly Wyoming, who led the research project. One tool that researchers like Alexander are using is a camera trap. The traps which are about the size of a shoe box or even a coffee cup are attached to something that's along the animal's regular path, like a tree that the puma has territorially scraped. When motion is detected, the trap gets triggered, resulting in a snapshot of the mountain lion as it strolls by. The cameras even have an infrared flash so that nighttime photos are captured without disturbing the animal. Researchers around the world use this type of tool to estimate population numbers and overall abundance of species. They comb through the images, sometimes using machine learning algorithms, and analyze them to identify individuals. But according to Alexander, there's a problem with this method when it comes to IDing mountain lions. Tigers, that's kind of the classic example of using cameras for individual identity because those stripes, they're like a fingerprint. And so a cougar, they do not have any of those really conspicuous stripes on their sides. That's because nearly all pumas around the world, with exceptions of distinguishing things like scars, have light, sandy colored fur down their sides. The scientific name for a mountain lion, puma conqueror, literally translates to one color. This lack of unique coloration on the sides of their bodies means that researchers like Alexander can't usually tell if one puma crosses a camera trap 5 times, or if 5 individual animals pass by. However, it's a different story when it comes to their facial markings. They're kind of a showstopper. Get a close up image of a face. They're stunning, just those huge eyes and there's a lot of detail and whisker patterns and all sorts of stuff. They really are beautiful. So Alexander and his team decided to capitalize on the dramatic facial features of mountain lions. They added a few gadgets to their camera traps so that when motion was detected, a cougar kitten call was played. This noise repeatedly piqued the interest of passer by pumas so that they looked up long enough for the camera trap to grab a face shot. 5 independent investigators reviewed the puma headshots and attempted to ID the individual animals, compared to the traditional side ankle camera trap, the new attention getting device was about 92% more accurate. This work was recently published in the journal ecology and evolution. This study is an important step on the path to being able to more confidently identify and track animals in a really scalable way. Snapping headshots of mountain lions also opens up new opportunities to involve AI techniques, like the facial recognition technology used by airport security. This could really expedite the image analyzation process for researchers. I think that's very possible that could be a really useful technique in the future. There have been a lot of other facial recognition studies done in animals, but it's never been with a camera trap. So that was kind of the unique thing about this study was merging these two ideas. And beyond being able to more precisely understand how many mountain lions are in an area, Alexander says that this new camera trap method could be used for tracking other critters that lack distinguishing side colors, but have unique features elsewhere. This includes vulnerable species like wolverines, pine martens, and even grizzly bears. That's where it's saying cheese for the camera, don't you think? Thanks for listening. For.

"A huge praca, so because of on paper right now, they are and they shouldn't be scared to say it overwhelming favorites. This week, I'm sorry. Pachuca. Whoever they play against this week and it's a must win game for them. It's a must win game. For pumas. If they have any hope of going on to the next round, going on to that play in game, okay? This team right now is so thin and the sounders are so stacked so good. On paper. It blows out the Montreal. It blows out the Salt Lake, it blows out the Toronto matchups. It would be a huge fracasso for the Seattle sounders if they don't win at home. And a missed opportunity. Because you know, you know as much as everybody else around MLS may not want to see the Seattle sounders be the first team from MLS to win the Concacaf Champions League. The folks in Seattle, they want it real bad. And here's the reality. Sometimes soon, whether it's this year or not, an MLS team is going to break through. And this is as good a chance as, yeah, I'm a less a sad, but it's as good a chance, hurt, because the Seattle sounders are likely to have in the next couple of years as well. You're not going to probably run into a weak pumas or a team this week in another final. If you are Seattle, even if you are lucky enough to get back and as good as Seattle is, it's not like they make the Concacaf Champions League Final every year. So this is a unique opportunity you know to be a huge failure if they can't make it and I'm with you on the state of pumas. There's not just a pachuca match this weekend, which yes, that is who they're playing. And they do have to spread their limited resources as you say, awfully thin because they need something out of that match if they're going to make it into La Liga. Probably, maybe they can get Y with a draw or maybe a defeat and get through. But probably need something from that match. The alarm also injury as well as a big one. And maybe there's some like psychological letdown too, right? Imagine if they were to not just have blown it in the first leg, but also lose to pachuca on the weekend. You're basically looking at like the worst week in pumas history if you don't get it done against Seattle so I could see a lot of pressure right there. Real quick, give me a percentage. Percentage chance to win. To win. 40. Wow, really? Yeah, 'cause I thought you just set Seattle were huge favorites. 40% gives us way too much. But because of what I know from this puma's team, when they're the underdogs, when they perform the best, I actually think they perform better in that role. So yeah, I'll give them more than a fighter's chance on this one. All right, second leg, then next Wednesday at.

"Right now it came out. It came out even where it was one on one. Let's not let it be something where one gets one over the other in Seattle. And I don't think he's wrong about that. Everything I've seen Andres in the lini leads me to believe he's at a well educated man, he's a gentleman, and he's a very good coach. I only happens to respect the Seattle sounders a lot. I saw a postgame interview with him where he's on another network and these guys who know very little about Major League Soccer are trying to badmouth the defensive line of Seattle sounders, these typical stereotypes that they're throwing his way and he's like, no, no, no, no. This is a very good team. These are very good players. I know them from here. He dissected and analyzed the Seattle sounders and gave them their respect. He knows what he's going up against. I see where you're coming from, but I think you may be reading a little bit too much into this. I'm known to do that from time to time. I didn't hear Brian Schmidt are saying as much about the officials after last night's game. Though I did, he did acknowledge it was a crazy match it would take quite some time to unpack that. By the way, the first CCL final with VAR and in the first leg alone, herc, we have three penalties. So I think we have a lot to look forward to in the future. So here's where we at. Seattle, going home, two two into the second leg. I mean, you basically at this point, you got one hand on that trophy. So if we think that is it, from here on out, if the sounders don't win the Concacaf Champions League. Huge fracasso. The biggest for a castle in Major League Soccer's history in this competition. Because of who the Seattle sounders are and who pumas are in this moment. Pumas was already limping into this game. Juan linna was on one leg score two goals. Yes, Alan Mosul was a leading assist man, was there the heartbeat of that team down on the right hand side, the guy who kind of made them tick. He's out. His season may be in doubt. That freak accident that happened. So he may be gone. This is a team that's already thin. Going up against the bar of Major League Soccer, easily the best team in the last decade. You want to talk about finals, you want to talk about winning consistently one of our culture, you want to talk about ownership, you want to talk about actual team, spending the right way, doing the right things, fan environment, whether we're going to be playing. They're going to be playing in a stadium that's going to have north of 50,000 fans in March on lynch. Marshawn Lynch, one of them. This would be.

"Back in is on a I know you say unlucky, I think kind of dumb penalty from salsa there. I think that if this was Kurosawa, wouldn't we be saying crusader? I mean, wouldn't we be calling this a crusade? I do think pumas blew it. Maybe you think Seattle is more worthy of the headline, but pumas played a role and I wonder if you agree with me on this. I thought it to nothing, maybe pumas was lucky to be up to nothing, but they had about a half hour before Seattle got the goal to cut that lead in half. And I felt like pulled their foot off the gas pedal just that little bit. I don't know if that's to blame the players. I don't know if that's credit to Seattle, but I think at least some of it must fall on the manager who we've given a lot of credit to here. And that's Andres elini. As much as Seattle missed some chances, pumas had some chances up to nothing to really put Seattle out. And they miss those as well. What chances are those? I saw a puma's team that was doing what they could with a personality they had. I actually texted Mauricio and another producer. During this game, and I was like, man, the climate, this thin air is really affecting the altitude is really affecting pumas because they looked at a gas. That half an hour you're talking about, that's what we're talking about there. Now I'll ask you severe here. You're saying they blew it. Did you think that was a felony? Do you think are may have pushed right there Friday? This guy is such a unbelievable. So this is where I say, like you say south sadly, you can say whatever you want. But I've got a real problem with saying boomers blew it given the context and the circumstances. And I understand that may have been a controversial penalty for both teams, but given everything I've got a real issue with saying pumas blew it. Okay, you don't want to say food must blew it. And the next guy that we're going to hear from definitely doesn't want to say it, but he did say something interesting. Here's pool must manager Andres lini. And in Holyfield. I heard so I thought, you know.

Uh oh. Yeah, lots of heat after this one. The nano incense thought the referee was making fun of him. Everybody wanted a piece. Of niccolo dero there as you could see on both teams. Very, very, very intense at the end of that match, can't wait for the second leg in what now 6 days time. All right, her first question here. I'm supposed to ask you what's the better headline, but really what I want to know is what's the more accurate headline? Did the sounders take a well earned draw on the road or the pumas joke? Now, the sounders had a well earned dry and why I say that it is partly circumstantial, but I have a real hard time say thinking the pumas team choked. This is 18 that was already very thin. The nanos playing on one leg scores two goals. Alan mosel goes out with an injury. He's a leading assist man for boomers. He's the guy who actually makes them tick. This isn't already depleted team Arturo Ortiz. He's playing with the national team because he's better for this game and they're up to zero and then it ain't more circumstantial way you could probably say but okay, but should the PK have gone through? Should have been verified or actually counted with a little bit of a shove there. I've got a real issue saying pumas choked. I think pumas did what they couldn't this game and actually that was a very entertaining game at that. But I think Seattle sounders ended up getting a very good result in the most Seattle sounder type of way. You could say what you want, but we've seen this.

"Katarina makaro and the 9. Sophia Smith on one side, now pew on the other. They absolutely had their way with this team. And when those three were in, which is the point of these minutes in chemistry and confidence is you can see it. There's a swagger to that front three that's growing and increasing with every game. And even though the competition wasn't that good, you can see how good and dynamic that group is and that three. And then you add in rose lavelle and Lindsey Horan or Ashley Sanchez in the second game behind them in that attacking midfield position. That front 5 for the United States is good, really good. So I am certain there are some players that are veterans and Kristen press and Alex Morgan and others at home, Tobin heath going, you know, I gotta up my game to get into this mix because they're looking really good, not just in the national team against Uzbekistan, but leading the league right now in the challenge cup with four goals. Julie, for me of those three, it's really Mallory Pugh. I mean, she was so good in these two games. She had a goal in each of the game. I think she had three assists in each game. You go back to that first game. She could have had 6 or 7 assists in the 90 minutes that she played against Uzbekistan. I think we got to keep reminding people that a year ago, less than a year ago, this was a player that was left off the 18 player roster for Tokyo and then when they expanded it to 22, she still wasn't on the roster and now we're not just talking about her being in the team. I think even when you get all the stars back, that's a player who could very, very likely find herself in the starting lineup. So Mallory Pugh really having a good couple of games there. Julie, we got the Concacaf W championships coming up in early July in monterrey. We knew the U.S. and Canada were already going to be in. They automatically qualified. Now.

"Will, you've got every other concatenation attacking them at will. It's amazing the type of attention this man gets. I mean, he's 23 years old and he's already won a champion Zeke and he's playing at this stage and he had a bad game. He had two bad games. Yes, but that's going to happen when you play at that level. That's going to happen when you're 23 years old. To me, this is the normal growing pains of any player, any player trying to find his footing in an elite level. You say he divides opinion. I don't think he divides opinion between American fans. And I feel like all American fans are watching him and they're hoping he plays well and they're excited about it. I think where he divides opinion is in the reaction not to pulisic, but to the American fans, right? Because U.S. fans are very active on social media. They're gonna be talking about Christian Pulisic. And I feel like everybody's almost waiting for him to do anything wrong, whether you're a Mexico fan and you're prone not to like the U.S. or maybe you're somebody who's watching over in England. You see all these Americans talking about a guy who's a not a full time starter yet in the Premier League. You say, all right, guys, take it easy. Still, I feel like the negative focus on politic here is harsh. It does come down to the chance miss, though, right, her. I mean, the chance that he has what would have put Chelsea. Was it a full chance or a half chance? Was it a clean chance? It wasn't a stick against memo. It wasn't that clear. Right. But I think, you know, given what you said, his a, you know, his history. Because his performance, big game performances, I think we could have expected actually if I took anything away from this game that was like a negative for Christian ballistic, it's less about his performance and more about Timo Werner, because I've always thought that Timo Werner is the guy who's the greatest threat to Christian places. Playing time at Chelsea and like a week or not a week. Maybe a month ago, I was like, man, Timo Werner, like the gap between him and politic is huge. That's not the case anymore. Certainly not in the mind of Thomas Tuchel. Werner started over the weekend. He had two goals against Southampton, the 6th nothing he gets another start against John Madrid. He scores a goal and what Werner does is he offers something to Chelsea. I don't think any other player on their team offers, which is that speed. And really, what we always talk about. The ability to get in behind, to stretch a defense. And when you're the only guy on a team that does something, you got a leg up on everybody else. So I'm worried in that regard for policing, not necessarily his performance, but my oh my Timo Werner's stock is shooting through the roof and that's not going to be good for politics minutes. Well, as Thomas Tuchel air, so that Timo Werner stock, maybe shooting through a roof, but it's going to come in a rotation, like it has with Kai Havertz, like as with Lukaku, like it has with each like it has with politic like it has with Timo Werner. So I'm not too worried. What goes around comes around with Thomas Tuchel. Maybe we'll see some of that rotation this upcoming weekend,.

"That maybe individually has overachieved, but collectively we keep underestimating. Yeah, I think overachieving is probably more accurate here. I'm looking at what they've done in the Concacaf Champions League. Look, they need to basically a miracle to get to the semifinals, right? When you go down three zero in the first leg and you come back, you deserve a lot of credit, but hey, something catastrophic happened to the other team for you to get through. And if you want to go back to the round of 16 against sa presa, if you look at the aggregate, you say, oh, they breeze past here, right? 6 three. Not enough. You go back to that second leg with 15 minutes left in that second leg. It was even. It was three three. Now pumas pours on three goals in the last quarter hour and they go through quite comfortably in the end. But this isn't a bonus team that's dominating either in CCL or let's be honest in the yamaki. So right now they're tenth, which is bang average, right? Actually lower than half the table. Season before they were what? 11th. Again, being a worse as well said, remember they went on a run this season before. They barely got into repetitive barely get into that playoff. They went on a huge run, but that's what's scary about this team team. And you know this, like they could get this insane confidence. They were down four zero to the same group. And four four, they turned it around and went on to the final for Sloan. Maybe overachievers individually, maybe overachievers domestically, but in these knockout situations. You mentioned, they make it to, they make it to a final in 2020. Last year, last year, they tied at last that. They beat Atlas and Atlas in the second leg, it just wasn't enough. They go out on table right on being behind that lesson the table. So we know that in knockout competitions, they are underrated. They are underappreciated and they should be respected in the final. We've talked about the two teams that had good mid weeks. We got to talk about the losers as well,.

"We were talking about actually two seasons ago. We're talking about Jordan more excuse me. And nicolo dedo being MVP candidates alongside Joel Paulo. You had three MVP candidates on a single team. They're still together. You have Christian roll down playing MVP like football when Seattle sounders in this concave champion Zeke. You've got a step in fry who's rolling back the clock. You saw the saves he made last night because I know coincidentally you were following because your book one more goal would have done it for you. He wouldn't allow it. They've been as good as advertising Brian schmitzer. Brian schmitzer doesn't get the deserve or the credit he deserves. This is a man since 2016 has taken the Seattle sounders to a final every year, but 2018. I shouldn't say he. Garth filed away Adriana. The people in Seattle have established a culture, a culture that many Major League Soccer clubs wish they had. A winning culture. It goes beyond what you're seeing today. This is by far the best chance that Major League Soccer has. Yeah, and big picture, hurt. We've always said this, if it was going to be anyone, ten years ago, when you saw Seattle come into this league, you probably would have bet the sounders, right? Like if MLS has a Flank, a flagship organization, it is Seattle, Seattle should probably be the one real quick. Real quick, let me ask you this because you're saying their favorites. How important is it that the second leg is in Seattle when you say the sounders are favorites? Immensely important because Mexico has been the boogeyman. And playing in Mexico has been the deciding factor in a majority of these legs. And if we've seen the Seattle Sanders how they play in lumen field, I mean, you talk about 5 zero four zero three one every single one of those games could have been a 7 goal game for the Seattle sounders, so it's going to be massive because in Mexico, the Mexican teams, they make themselves respected. Just ask Chelsea and Real Madrid, right? You know Real Madrid was very happy to have those last 30 minutes there at the Santiago. And not at Stanford bridge. What about the other side of the final pumas? They advance without goals in the second leg, but thanks to a two one victory in the first leg. And I think it's interesting when we.

But the caveat to that is at some of the funds have said that they are interested in looking relatively early on like at a sort of an early stage growth so providing the i walk around money for a big developer could be one. We definitely saw that back in the day. The question then we can talk about this a little bit later. It's interesting what does that. What does that imply for pricing of assets in pricing of companies. When you have all that that capital chasing in something that's inherently smaller. Perhaps the pool of available capital within a fund just to be clear for assets. You mean like projects physical stuff things. Yes you may be buying them at this stage of commissioning yet. But you're buying into puma physical assets as opposed to an acquisition that is primarily concerned with intellectual property. Broadly speaking right It's it's going towards property plant equipment if you want rather than intellectual property right okay. One thing that i thought was really interesting. Looking at some of these announcements was i think it was the black rock announcement where they said that traditionally our previous to funds in this space have been solely on operational assets. But now we're going into construction assets and even just announced stuff announced projects so they're going further further field. I guess you could say that. That was pretty telling of where things are going. It's a sign. I think of sort of collective mass derail if you will. If an asset manager at that size is willing to start to go earlier and earlier in the development stage that implies greater confidence writ large across the sector and perhaps in the particular operators as well that they are investing in so..

But they found a way to Not keep guys around not pay them to type a salary that they should have been earning and It was the worst thing that happened in baseball towards the players. Because you know at the time we were fighting about our Our insurance policies and and things like that we didn't want more money. It was more about keeping what we had and they were about taking away from us so we had to go couple of strikes to To maintain what we had what we worked so hard to have formed families.

So I'm going to celebrate 401 I suppose it's as good a milestone as any this year when really it's just the pandemic the E Sportsman has seen a huge uptick in listeners. So do all of our listeners who joined us during this weird year and to all have been listening since we average ten downloads of show. Thank you for coming back day after day.

I'm a fan of all the brands in Esports and especially Puma because they're led by Matt Shaw who happens to be one of my favorite people in all of these Sports on Sunday Puma announced a new major sponsorship Puma sponsoring ten cents king of league.

Market, and it really really dominates that market as of March 2019 the game and brought in four point five billion dollars according to sensor Tower. I'll do something quick extrapolating math here. I found individual month's Revenue numbers from 20 20, which average I think this actually might be a conservative estimate another two hundred million dollars per month in revenue for honor of Kings. So if we take to walk 1 million as an average and multiply it by the 22-month separating March 2019 and January 2021, we get an additional four point four billion dollars in Revenue that would bring honor of Kings total halt to a point nine billion dollars since launch in 2015. That's a lot of money a lot of money this week the developer TV studios. Also announced another $154,000 would be invested in honor of Kings Esports with about six million of that going to prize pools for Puma. It's a huge win. The only other Esports League represented by Athletic Apparel birth. Like I said at the top is Nike and they have the League of Legends Pro league in China. And while the LPL is almost certainly the most important individual League contract and all of Esports honor of Kings K p.m. Is honestly not that far behind. It's just almost purely popular in China what Nike got with the LPL was also that International exposure that comes with worlds. Primarily Puma also offer deals with Cloud Nine and Gingy. I predicted the race for Esports assets from Nike Puma and Adidas would pick up and twenty Twenty-One and with Adidas already partnering with G2 and now Puma grabbing the kpl only in January.

June ambrose as it relates to mental health and fashion and there was an episode that we filmed on his show she had on. Vh wild cod style. By june ambrose. I was so insecure. Because i was coming out of well. It'd been a few years. Since i was a solo artist. And no longer touring. They're singing with destiny's child. I was trying to find my style footing outside of the group. How was trying to refine. It actually couldn't refine it. Because i had to define it and june. Ambrose really really helped me with that. Will we found out that it was deeper than defining my fashion sense. We discovered so much fear in me of walking alone doing something by myself so she said to a place where it was a cia trap. He studio where i only thought that. If you're training for gymnastics or the circus that you should only be going to these types of places but going into that trap appease plays when you have to stand on the ledge. I literally burst out in tears. Because i had a revelation that i was scared to take the leap by myself. That was just a personal nugget. I'm just so thankful to june for helping me discover that once again at went beyond anything that she was going to put me in fashion wise. It went beyond anything that surge on the makeup artist was gonna do with my makeup. It went beyond any even. They dyed my hair but none of that mattered. If i was going to continue to walk around with so much fear hours just literally gonna look fierce and be fearful and wanna be fearful some just so thankful to june for helping me take that leap of faith. Now i want to welcome to my podcast. June ambrose and amazing style icon herself but she has made her clients to be celebrity style icons as well especially in the hip hop world for superstars like missy elliott and jay z. And so many more. She's also the creative director for the global brand puma. And when she's not on my podcast she's an n. b. man costume designer for some of the biggest music videos and tv shows. But let me tell you something. She's also just a fabulous friend wife and mother please welcome. I can call her my friend. Y'all please welcome june ambrose. How category. I absolutely absolutely. I really wanted to just speak on your joy. And also the psychology behind your styling. But as i was thinking of people to be on this podcast especially those that are walking their journey to have a better quality of mental health. As said june. Ambrose is always smiling. June ambrose is always full of joy and i was like i never see her in a bad mood and i just wanna know june. How do you keep your joy. It's really exhausting. To be sad it'd be sad instead of the other way around. Yeah like it's. I find that you know i. Smoke is joining that. Were on in life. The cycle we think it's as we're living but it's going very slow but it's actually going really. It's a short trip you know. We're lucky we get a hundred years. You know so. I tried to make everyday count. I try to even on my worst date on on our bed. Dang something happens that may be upsetting or disappointing. I know that it won't that you know there's always a tomorrow. Hopefully yeah if. I want there to be if there isn't gonna make this moment joyful. Yeah i just to tap. And i think since memories really help you to kind of stay happy you know when you tap back into those moments that joint like always tell people that hate taking photos if you feel awkward and uncomfortable in front of a camera tap into like sense memories and think about the feeling the emotion not about. What's in front of you but think about what's inside of you. You know that constant reminder that technique is something that takes practice so if you work on tapping into the joy. When you're in pain you'll be able to call on it even if it doesn't it doesn't sustain you for length of time. At least you know you have the ability to tap into a good feeling. You have that choice now. Some people struggle with not being able to tap into their joy. You know for for many reasons. But i recognize that is one of my superpower so i like to share it and it's just again. It's less exhausting. it's more fun being degi. Hear what she said. Did you get those nuggets. I mean because i feel like you were saying even if you are having a bad day you don't you're not gonna let it turn into your worst day and i also feel like if you're having a bad day some people will let everybody know around them that they're having a bad hair then you make everybody else have a bad day for michelle is kind of also you patient than than a man in space and i'm in creative space also working with celebrity talent and working with corporate big companies beauty brands in different scenarios and being on camera you after how to put that away and not bring that into the space right. So it's like you can't walk into a classroom day you know. You can't go on camera with a day. You have to find a way to pack away.
Esports Network Podcast
XSET's Wil Eddins and Clinton Sparks on Music & Merch in Esports
"Also just the overlap of celebrity with gaming that we've seen and how that also translates into Church Street. We're so starting pretty broad couldn't I guess I'll start with you with someone who has deep into the top level of the music industry. How have you seen Stars changed their perspective on gaming the last few years. It really feels seen a lot of acceptance of gaming and embracing of gaming from a lot of the most popular musicians of the world. Well, I mean, it would behoove them to get familiar with the community in an industry that is as large as gaming in E Sports is because they have their music which is also a big component in streaming and gaming so it would be advantageous for them to get familiar with that wage base. So they can interact with those celebrities are streamers and games over there to get more exposure for their music but a lot of a lot of athletes and in artists are Gamers themselves off. So, you know used to be two separate things these guys over here and those guys are over there and you know throughout my career. I've always been the bridge between different Industries and connecting them together. So that's one of the things that we did really big at our last organization that we intend on doing even bigger here at exit. So, yeah, I think gaming in in in I said this before gaming in music has always been always been basically dating they've been like a booty call and it just never committed. You know, I mean, I think just now they're actually realizing like, oh, we really love each other like why why are we like hanging out more about Netflix and chill? So I think that's kind of what's happening with music and Gamers and streaming and and musicians all together now, It's been pretty crazy. I think a lot of it started with the Drake and ninja fortnite stream, but prior to that people like Deadmau5 were on Twitch way before it really took off as a platform and there's you know, quite a bit of sampling of video game music over the years and tons of this different crossover will as you've seen it from a merchandising and fashion perspective. We've seen Esports and gaming has become things that a lot of artists like to wear onstage that athletes are walking into games with how have you seen that change and how and building as somebody who built phase into one of those brands that have seen odd the chests of many different celebrities. How does the crossover of celebrity into gaming help you from a merchandising and fashion perspective. So I you mentioned the juju moment with Drake and Travis like I mean, I remember being in the office with Greg and Clinton just saying like wow, this shit is validated now, like like the mass. The youth in urban and pop culture is not Embrace Esports and gaming. So I was like, you know, since we have such an extensive background in a parallel fashion, I was like, we need to start reaching out to our friends and family that are also still like, you know, not very like familiar with e sports but like if we were to reach out to them and let them know like Now's the Time like do projects with the Esports organization like we would break ground. So I mean getting getting product onto like whether it's celebrity or just like, you know, the day-to-day gamer or the cool guy or cool girl in school. Like I just thought like we just need to, you know, reach out to Heritage brands that you know, the E Sports gamer communities are ready have a brace and wearing on a daily and just you know outfitting and working at it into their you know, their closets by merging, you know, that these sports or gamer brands with them. It's it was it was a no-brainer, you know, like people, you know, people walk all you know walking sneakers and he's he's all day but our Nikes but how cool would it be if it was paired off with an E sports or gamer bread, you know, so it was an easy. Was it easy marriage? So to speak absolutely those Partnerships are so crucial when building a Brand New Jersey too big a massive icon and in the same time frame. Coincidentally, we've also seen all the major athletic apparel Brands Nike Adidas Champion Puma all do a lot more work in Esports and gaming in general. So there's been a ton of those crossover opportunities as you now move to exit where you've got a new brand that was created just this last summer is now working at a bunch of different games side a bunch of celebrities or some of the challenges in building this new brand into one that encompasses that same level of passion that you see for other stray dog. Brad's at the gaming world, right? I mean, I don't think there's any there's any challenges if you don't mind me jumping in there cuz we're dope and we're doba what we do and we plan on different people build stuff. So I will can add on to that. But yeah, I mean he's right right, but you know, we we've learned how to Pivot and understand what we're doing is super new in that we don't have an existing. We didn't have an existing audience. You know, we we came straight out the gate and we knew if we were going to do it we had to come with some heat or just something where it would make it a great impression. So I mean the challenges are a like a month. It's going to be trying to find who your customer is and what they'd like and if they would like, you know, the things that we're presenting based off our tastes and you know the design that we're putting out so it's like you're you're basically throwing out a line and seeing what kind of fish you can catch right and then the other thing is, you know, supply chain like pre covid-19. Big problem, you know Finding inventories and and blanks and you know even just working with companies during this time was like the the time lines and production often times where hard to work with so we had to we had to work along those lines and figure it out. So we also be at home about it because

Eyes on Conservation Podcast
Mark's Cougar Conundrum
"Welcome to the is on conservation podcast. I'm Gregory. Hatanaka and today for this is on conservation. We have none other than the one the only serene assignments, how you doing Serena I'm great. I also really appreciate the way that introduce people on the show I appreciated the last introduction that you did. So Nice. So. Nice of you. I really appreciate that well I just want to do the best I can to make sure that everybody knows who the real experts are which is. No secret. Not Me so. No you're one of them for sure. Did Watts Oh. Yeah. Oh Yeah. I even know that L. No no I'm just I'm just an enthusiastic cheerleader that's really what it is and the feeling is mutual. Absolutely absolutely mutual. I'm really excited to jump into this interview that you did with Mark L. Brock. Why don't you tell listeners who this is what we're going to be listening to? Yeah mark is amazing and he the the one thing that I really appreciate about mark is he's so articulate. It's it's it's kind of crazy. It's sort of like he knows how to talk to the public and talk to stakeholders all the things that we're GonNa talk about in the interview he's really good at communicating people and communicating all his efforts and his research and and. I don't just from a management perspective as someone who is a wildlife manager everything that he said made a lot of sense and I think it would make a lot of sense to people that don't know a lot about the subject So I was really impressed with him. Mark is a researcher focuses on mountain lions or Pumas cougars whatever you WANNA, call him, and he has been working in this field for. A really long time. So he's really gotten to know the species their behavior and a lot of the conflicts that come with them and living alongside large carnivore like mountain lion. So he wrote an he's written several books but his most recent book is called the Cougar Conundrum and the Cougar conundrum kind of outlines these bigger picture and with great examples, case studies and examples of basically the history of our. You know what he calls a conundrum, which I think is the best word to use this huge problem. That we have been experiencing north, America, surrounding these animals for for hundreds of years. So it's it's really it was great getting to talk to him and I learned a lot You know not just reading the book, but also just talking him and again he has a way with the way that he speaks that it just makes sense and he's very measured and I can just really tell that he he has invested a lot of time. You know working trying to problem solve, but you have to he he's he's the perfect person because he is so measured and listens and I I just think he's he's the best possible person to do what he does. So I'm really excited to have you guys listen to our conversation. That's awesome. Yeah. He's very well spoken and this book if I'm not mistaken, you had a sneak peek at it should be coming out the day after this episode airs Yes. So I, got a sneak peek at it and I got to read it ahead of its release which will be released on August thirteenth. So yeah, the day after this episode gets. and it will be available at any bookseller He mentioned that it would be great. If you know you WANNA contact your local bookshop see if you can get a couple of copies into the store, but it's also available online and wherever you normally get your books. Well, that sounds amazing and let's just jump right into this interview. Why don't we start by you just introducing yourself your name and a little bit about your background. Sure. My Name's Markelle Brooke. I'm a father. And a working biologist and I live in western Washington on the Olympic peninsula where I am part of a massive collaboration with five tribal nations to study mountain lions on the peninsula and how they crossed the interstate five corridor. I also worked for Penn. Thera. I'm the director of the PA- Program Outline programme, whichever were you prefer? and. So I help sort of create new projects identify need identified the conservation issues for mountain lions across their entire range. So we have projects ranging from up here in Washington State all the way down to the southern tip of South America. Wow. So it's a huge I know panther is a huge. Organization it's a global organization. I mean and I know you probably get this a lot. But how did you? How did you get involved with Panther and how did you get involved with mountain lions? Indeed it's You know it's all dumb luck. Great. panthers a as he said, it's a global organization. We work to conserve wildcats and they're landscapes around the world. You know it's How ends up doing what I do is. Is Sort of a circuitous journey. One never really has plans or at least if you do they tend to go out the window and and life happens. So I tell folks because I get asked this a lot. You know you must have always planned to be outlined biologist, and now here you are. Say absolutely not you know you. Have a plan. In the field of wildlife, you may have a goal and what generally happens is an opportunity comes up and you decide to take it or you don't so
The Business of Fashion Podcast
Jochen Zeitz on the Power of Fashion to Drive Sustainable Change
"Good afternoon you can. How are you today? I'm very good high Iran from America. You're in new. Mexico is that right. Yes shattering at home because our officers are still closed until later this month. Okay and tell us a little bit about where you're at in New Mexico. You have a home there. I know but you. You spend your time in quite a few different places. So why did you choose New Mexico as a place to sit this quarantine out because Just being appointed to the position of senior and president of Davidson then the company's movable key and to and I'm only one time zone away from Milwaukee so I'm headed. Us publicly listed company now. And and hence. Why I'm a US together with God it well that I guess. Pratt for practical reasons that makes perfect sense though. I hear that New Mexico's also very beautiful and I can imagine that doesn't hurt. It certainly doesn't enter this still lots of opportunity to ride a motorbike as well. You know. Yuck and before we get to the topic at hand I think you know that This week on the business of fashion. We've really been focusing all of our content and discussions around building a responsible business so it strikes me as very interesting that you've taken this new role as the president and CEO Partly Davidson because apart from the fashion industry and maybe the Energy Industry the transport industry is one of the most damaging industries in the world when it comes to our planet and so I know you have this incredibly long and sustained career in focusing your professional time and energy on building more responsible sustainable businesses. So you can you tell us a little bit about you know why this opportunity at Harley Davidson was so appealing to you. Well first of all because I believe that sector leaders and iconic brands have a tremendous opportunity to contribute to a change in consumer behavior. As a whole and I've done that in my boss lie that coma as both carrying also helping them said business. The Independent initiatives at the time being called. Ppo hold now carrying. And I just believe that sector is an iconic brands have that opportunity and we should use it as a as a way not just to be more responsible but the actually looking at it as an opportunity for jobs in the market. You're seen as a kind of turnaround specialist. You know. You've gone in from a very young age at Puma. I think you were the youngest. Ceo in Germany of a public company. At that time. And you took Puma and really help to not just turn it around from a business standpoint but also really inject some of these principles That we've been focusing on this week at B. O. F. into that business so I guess you know in the first instance someone who's operated in this space for a very long time. I mean how is it that you defined what a responsible business means now but a sustainable socially responsible business means how do you articulate that to people in your teams or elsewhere when you're trying to kind of gain further? Bienne that this is the way you more businesses need to be thinking your lipid limit. Stop with the first part of your statement rather than Christian and calling me a turnaround specialist. I would look at myself as as a change. Agent more than a turnaround specialists and the foster. The world changes the boy. I need to be a change agent and an still change it. What you do in Your Business and I guess ozone our private life if you look at how the world has changed especially in the last few months so I don't look at myself of turnaround specialist but somebody that's challenge the status quo and to come back to your question is when you when you look at the State of planet. Today we recognize that we are taking more resources away from old planet leaving if irreparable damage that means we have to change and hence we cannot just look at shareholder. The value growing a business any longer but we have to look at it responsibly. But at the same time also as an opportunity and how we can actually do better as a business but doing so by keeping our stakeholders robin just showers minded. Our Planet is key stakeholder because without our planet we won't be able to function so that's clear and then the corona virus crisis hit in the last few months and businesses throughout various sectors. Have been hit hard including Harley Davidson the industry that we work in the fashion industry. I mean how. How do you see this kind of responsible? Business thinking in light of the crisis that we're now all experiencing both from kind of public health and an economic standpoint. I'd say even going into the crisis you start to see change. In a lot of companies more and more companies that may be compared to five years ago where it was handful of select leaders and companies that we're promoting a more responsible way of doing business And I think this is only going to accelerate. I think investors are asking the question that was one of the missing links in the past that quite often investors. We're not really looking. Yes G. or sustainability as a as a an important Harrasment based on which one should just judge investment. That has been happening. I actually see this accelerating post-crisis that you can make the business case for a planet And you can say what we experiencing now with. The virus is just a false way of experiencing climate change that will happen over decades but the resolves is creeping change or planet which will have negative impacts on how live operate and work hence something. We need to get our hands around on. This virus is is a testament for a needed cross change in order to deal with a much bigger crisis that the would it be affecting our lives wrong world in twenty thirty years to call. So we've been talking this week as I mentioned about. You know the idea that. The fashion industry needs to clean up. Its Act and you have the very unusual position now of WHO's operated right at the very heart of the fashion industry as you mentioned both at home on caring and I know you stepped out of the industry some time ago but I'm sure as an observer and you know someone who was kind of closely embedded in this industry previously. You've been watching and I'm curious to understand your like. How do you see the fashion industry now? In light of this need for the industry to clean up its act and you know some of these things that you were talking about for years. These principles around sustainability and creating a business that simply extract resources from the planet and exploit people businesses that really found a way of operating while respecting these different stakeholders. I mean as a as a as a former insider now an outsider. What are your thoughts now on the fashion industry on this journey of of of kind of shaking things up when I look at every crisis in opportunity. It's an opportunity to really look at your own south. It's an opportunity to look at Your Business and how you operate and say what can we the essentially change to adjust our says to the new noma coming out of this crisis. I would say it's it's a given that they will be do a which is affecting our lives which is effective way effecting the way we we by the way we triple. A. And our consciousness about critically shes of our world advising domestically I think that's if businesses don't ask themselves that question you know you would be history of rather than the future attempts to fashion industry. I always believe that you need to embed sustainability into the DNA of Your Business and of your brand. You don't want to be the one shouting. We are sustainable. Be less understandable and others Jimmy. It's a definition of quality and a new way of looking at what is quantity in the future versus what was deemed the poss. When our Resources Ltd I would just simply say as quantities. Such an important driver luxury and desirability. If you're not sustainable. You don't actually operates with quality products that that's the new definition for me. That embed sustainability in every decision. You make us a business as a business leader as design as a manufacturer and and we need to look at this very seriously at and not just a setup sustainability departments that only scratched the surface but actually embed the word sustainability into our day to day operation.

Luka Doncic Agrees to a Shoe Deal With Jordan Brand
"In sneaker news. I remember the last time he was here. We spoke about sneaker news. Where we're Luke assign back? Well guess what Luka has made a decision and he has gone with her to Jordan brand people third third Jordan brand Jordan brace our joining and the thing about it I loved was the outfit that he dropped. Take a look at this outfit the day. Eight after signing those Georgia ones were absolutely Chris Have Cream colored little Hinson to blow. It was not nice way to come out though I mean he said you know this is coming out party. Say I'm here. Yeah exactly now. We wanted him to sign up. The places hopefully hopefully could have been Lebron's I you know I cited or Adidas Puma as we even do some of those out there but with him signing and we Jason Tatum with the Jordan Braid with Zion Williamson with the Jordan brand my question to you who gets a signature shoe. I is a great question. And I'M GONNA go with Luca and the reason why I say Lucas Lucas absolutely plan lights out. The right lightweight triple double machine. He's in a great team in Dallas. He's the front runner for maybe even. MVP keep up these debts. And I'm sure that's part of his conditional contract for Jordan that he he played excellent. And you know Georgia's not the type of person that's going to give anybody anything before they deserve it absolutely. I think it's going to hurt Zion with him being out for the year or they say that you know he should be you back shortly him being out for the year. I think that's going to hurt him. Jason Tatum played lights out basketball but is not on a local level and to be honest with you out of all three Luca and pretty much the most marketable NBA player right now. Even though there's been a lot of changes in the NBA. Luca is a player that all of America is comfortable celebrated celebrated and if you understand what I'm celebrate anywhere in America in Iowa they comfortable having a Luca poster as well as a in New York City. They're comfortable having a local post. I can agree with that. I can agree with that but he also he has a certain trauma bite himself. He's a fan favorite and I just don't see The two guys beat him up. Well I won't be coming to Luca ones who
The Big Picture
Dissecting the 2019 Version of 'The Lion King'
"Are here to talk about the twenty thousand nine hundred film the Lion King which is also one thousand nine hundred four film called the Lion King. This is a photo realistic digitally animated reimagining though not quite so creatively reimagined version of the lion king which is of course one of the Canonical Disney new golden teenage classics that has been remade in this series of remakes and boy. There are a lot of things to say about this film. They're not a lot of things to say about. The plot of this film because the plot is exactly the same as the original yes for the most part but Amanda. Let's start this conversation by talking about one thousand nine hundred four wow take take me back to Amanda Dobbins in one thousand nine hundred four entering a movie theater and experiencing the lion king so I would have been nine years old at the time of the release police and I'm trying to remember. I don't remember this actual theater day experience because again I was nine I don't know what are you going to say children children but I have probably seen seen this movie after the fact as much as any other Disney movie that I've seen and I think this soundtrack definitely became a part of my life. We have spent a lot of time on this five guys talking about how much I love Elton. John and I think this was my entry way into Elton on John. <hes> so I the music and those opening notes you make me emotional every single time and I think I'm trying to remember we were talking I went to they were released the lion king the nineteen ninety-four Lion King about ten years. There's an I actually went to see that in theaters which is strained. It's not something I normally do. I don't go in for that type of nostalgia usually but this became the central Disney tax for Amihai for a lot of other people in my generation I think because it's not about princess and it's not about a boy either I mean obviously there are male and female lions but it's just about animals. I think it's about more than just a love story which which is great it brings in a larger audience and I think probably both in terms of story musical achievement. I think it's the peak of the new golden era of Disney I would agree with you and I think that that has evolved over time. This up in this movie was obviously massive box office success. Yes it was later adapted Julie Taymor into a very successful Broadway adaptation. This new version is directed by Jon favreau. Who is one of the I think one of the signature blockbuster film makers of his era so you know this meaningful the movie the original movie was nominated for the two Academy Awards which actually feels quite low in retrospect this is before there was a best animated feature category was not needed for best original score and best original song for can you feel the love tonight? I definitely saw the lion king three or four times in the movie theater really and I was I think I was eleven when the film was released so maybe a little old but I also I think I was very I think Aladdin ensnared me and I got very excited about people like Robin Williams and so the <unk> Immonen Puma aspect the movie. I've done very appealing. I was not quite aware of the Shakespearean hamlet intonations or the biblical Joseph and Moses Story but at the same time I think that this movie is pitched a little older than say Aladdin for that the reason because there are those generational and canonical overtones in it's about fathers and sons and family what we leave behind and responsibility and larger issues. There's there are no oh princesses in this movie which I think is one of the other things to that is significantly different from so many of the classic Canonical Disney movies that we talk about this isn't Cinderella. This isn't sleeping beauty. This isn't even Aladdin in that respect. It's a very male movie. All of the main characters are very male and I wonder if as a kid I I was responding to that unconsciously somehow. I'm sure you were. I think it is also somehow it is very male but somehow feels like less masculine that a lot of I have been handed a lot of male focus. I've caught her throughout my life and especially as a kid and I do think that this opened up a little bit more than it is. Also there are female characters. Nala is not as developed as you might right like but at the end of the other lions you know they're lions can see yourself if you're going to see yourself in an animal. You're going to see yourself in an animal. There's kind of less gender stuff to work with. I'm glad we agree that. This is the peak of the Disney neo golden era the decision to remake. This movie is complex on the one hand. If you listen to our episode about alive and you know that there is really one reason why they're doing this which is money. These movies are making a lot of money. These live action remakes. Some of them are more successful than others. Yes I think Dumbo came out earlier this year and has already been forgotten. That was not very successful these from financial perspective I think creatively there's kind of some cool things in dumbo happening. It's Tim Burton applying his Tim burntness to the Disneyworld which is kind of a kick unto itself. We may look back on in ten years ago. That was interesting. I found beating the beast for example to be utterly dull and pointless and I thought Aladdin was strange and a little bit unnerving and a little bit sexual and why why are the only person person who's like let the genie have his life. Why not I want to be a human? That's part of being a human. Let's make this a sex positive podcast. Okay thank you. The Lion King is different from those movies. Those movies star the sex in this movie. There's there's has no sex in this movie and there's no humans in this movie at all and all those other movies all of these other live action remake Cinderella Kenneth Branagh Cinderella Stars a human being Willy James. The Lion King is completely digitally animated and there are some brilliant people I think chief among them Rob Llegado who is the sort of digital overseer of this whole film the person who has conceived a lot of this new has worked on a great many films Steven Spielberg and Maureen Scorsese in his widely considered one of the premier digital architects of the modern era of movies but there's something you know the the phrase the Uncanny valley has been used frequently in aggressive reviews of this movie because Sedna Valley and there's something unnerving about looking at real life photo realistic ish lions <hes> talking and singing and nuzzling and conquering <hes> the actual physical Ram like manifestation of this movie. How did you feel about it? I think I'm the only person who is really pro. I honestly it's like a nature documentary with Elton John Songs. I'm not mad. I do think I turn to you within ten minutes of this movie starting and was like we should be high right now. We shouldn't in a band because it was a professional experience in the middle of the day and it's important to have boundaries kids in that theater yes exactly so we made the right responsible decision but in terms of the attitude with which I would enjoy seeing this movie I thought it looked looked amazing and I I really do think that as a technical and visual achievement it's beautiful and there and I wanna say two things about that. One is in terms of the it's. It's competition and comparing it with all of the other effects that we have seen. I find it so strange that people don't seem to like this because we have sat through so much true visual garbage in the last two three five years so many blockbuster movies that we see look like trash and their garbled and there's so much C._G._i.. And that's I mean that is certainly true. I think of Superhero movies which I just have stopped taking into account visually because I've just give it up but also a lot of now that we're using more C._G._i.. And Action Movies and honestly just for location stuff so much stuff looks really bad all the time and you can tell that it's fake and I saw that this looked beautiful. I agree with you to an extent. I think that if you look at a lot of the early reviews of the film what you'll see is this kind of phrasing the lion king is an extraordinary breakthrough comma but and the but what is this is creatively dead end and I think you're what your feelings are. I remember this kind of conversation around Avatar. It feels very similar to the one that you're having right Avatar. which is that habit to see Avatar in theaters? I don't know if you saw it in theaters. I assume you did okay you like most humans saw. There is a blizzard in New York and I'd better my house for today's and I gotta go right so Avatar. I remember being completely blown away. I it was a very similar situation where I was not really thinking terribly hard about the world that James Cameron had created but I was inside side of the world and it's sort of movie that when you watch on television does not stand up in quite the same way but it has this ability to surround you an envelope you in what it has created which is from whole cloth the line this lion king. I think is somewhat similar. The problem is we know where the movies going the whole time and so if you are not stoned and you can't fully just appreciate the digital presentation it feels like you're on a road to nowhere and end. I like the I like the story of the Lion King a lot and there are things about this version of the lion king that I think are interesting in well done but I couldn't just help but feel like they stretched out something that I didn't need this moves thirty minutes longer longer than the original film I would say that the voice performances some of which are good most of which are less good than the original which is not what you want true they meet an interesting trace to <hes> interesting choice but I understand how it happens they spent all of their time on the visuals <hes> and it looks spectacular and they did not update this script they they seem to have extended the story little and I think they spent a lot of extra time. Is the the Hyena seen in the chase scenes. Which I think are pretty scary? Yes and I'm curious to see how kids handle they're going to be tougher for your old. I mean that was a little scary in the cartoon yeah because I mean and that's dealing with parent death and real serious stuff but this genuinely mainly frightening an immersive and so I thought that was a great achievement and I think that's where the time goes but they didn't update the actual scripts like there are still lines being said that were written for a children's cartoon soon version of these people and there is a difference between a an what if if is the non pejorative way of saying children's cartoon well how would you you're well but I'm trying to distinguish kind of the nineteen ninety four animation from the new enemy that is something that I wanna talk about a little later in this show but but there is a difference in presentation and style and it's two different types of art and they both require skill and artistry but you expect to different things to come out of the mouths of the nineteen ninety-four Lion and the photo realistic two thousand nine hundred nine no doubt the original film you go back and we watch it and last week on the Internet there was a twitter account that very predictably did a side by side of the ninety four version of the Lion King <hes>. I believe it was the performance of a Kuna Matata. I can't recall specifically which song it was. I think it was gonna Matata and then the new version of accoutrements auto and what you see in the animated version is this almost busby Berkeley. Ask musical execution. The characters are like whirling dervishes. They're doing flips. They're swinging from vines. They're not just walking through the jungle and in the new Kuna Matata it's just a warthog and Amir cat and a lion walking singing and that is just less visually dynamic and it's more difficult to do this sort of photo realistic digital animation that they've done but it's not as fun and the original Lion King is really fun and there's something intellectually absent from this in a way. It's like the in an attempt to be more real. They have lost sight of what was ultimately truly great about the movie. I think that is that is where my head is. I I think that's true. I don't think that this movie like does it to borrow sports metaphor that I barely understand like carried the baller cross the goal line if he will done that state football yes right they don't they don't get there but I I also watched that clip of the side by side and my first thought was wow I nine and was really young and I was at child when I saw this movie and this is a movie it is it does have childlike wonder and what I responded to in this New Lion King and you and I had this conversation after we saw it is it's like it's a different type of imagination. I mean here's my thing what if lions could talk that would be cool as shit if like lions could actually talk and you could just watch them have an actual shakespearian drama and it's not even amber narrating narrating it it's them actually talking and it looked as and it was real life and it looked beautiful and it was shot beautifully as this is that is more exciting to that type of imagination is more exciting to me than total made up worlds ads and total out of nothing fantasy things I just did the things were spinning reality and suddenly it's like these majestic creatures could speak to you. I I find that really exciting and I liked that approach to this movie i. I don't think they leaned into it fully enough. I'm going to ask you unanswerable question. Let's say that there was a movie in Twenty nineteen called the Lion King <hes> that was written designed executed in exactly the same way but the nineteen ninety-four version of the lion king did not exist and this was the first time you're seeing this movie <hes> this story. Do you think you would like it well because you typically do not like quote. Unquote Animated Films Right I. I don't like things that are for children because I'm a grownup and I know that that's like really hard for you to here. It's just unnecessarily. It's just it's just I'll bet you asked me unanswerable Kushner and I'm trying to be very honest if if I could sense and this movie so for children <hes> you know and so much of this stuff where they didn't make it they made it pretty scary but then they're still kind of the goofy numbers and they don't explore a lot of a lot. AWW questions number one. There's no sex had a lot of questions about like the demographics of a Lion Pride yes you there. There are larger political issues that they kind of leave on the table because you got it just like have a a little lion singing a song about you. You know I just can't wait to which I by the way have memorized and I just forgot the title there
Zion Williamson out of Duke-UNC game for knee injury after blowing out his shoe
"With last night's big story and that was the Zion Williamson injury. If you happen to miss it. Of course, he was the big game everybody that was you know, everybody excited going into last night's nine PM eastern tip off UNC Duke. It's one game that everybody gets excited for every year. And especially this year with giant Williamson and everything he has done for the blue devils and thirty three seconds in Zion goes down. He tries to make a move near the top of the key plants, his left foot and his shoe. Disintegrates he blows out the shoe to a point that I don't think I've ever seen anything like that grabs the knee unable to play for the rest of the game. Do goes on to lose big at home. Final is eighty eight seventy two sixty two points of those eighty eight that UNC scored came the paint clearly a huge hole left by Williamson. But the big question that everybody wanted to know after the game was is. I n okay is his left knee. Okay. Coach K, please. Tell US House I doing so mild knee sprain. Nia stable. We don't know how long he'll be out. I think we'll find out more about that. It's crazy that the two games we've lost here. Something's happened in the first part of the game. And the preparation that. You would have for the game is obviously based on. Your players being there, and especially he and Archer who are who are the key guys. And so it puts everyone. State of. Trying to figure it out while while you're playing outstanding team. That's not a good situation. And obviously Duke did not figure that out. That's coach Mike shoshefsky. And this is first and last I'm Gabe Nigel on ESPN radio. But it seems that John is going to be okay. The fact that coach K called a mild knee sprain. Is of just a knee sprain. Seems that whenever there's the potential to be something worse with the knee teams will throw out the generic term knee sprain. But coach K getting a little bit more specific they're calling it a mild knee sprain. Saying that the knee is indeed stable still don't know. How much time Zion is going to miss them guessing going to miss some time. But the fact that it seems that he is going to be okay. Makes it okay that we all made jokes last night about Nike's expense on Twitter and on Instagram on Facebook on social media, and poooest gotta know betterman Puma even sent out a tweet Puma was throwing shade at Nike because the shoe blew out. And every story that I'm reading there was an ESPN dot com. You're you're reading the story. And specifically you see the Nike shoe like Nike just continues to get thrown under the bus, his his his left Nike basketball shoe fell hard as he planted tripling near the free throw line on the opening play. That's from Ryan McGee over at ESPN dot com. And it was blowing up so bad on social media team people going after Nike that Nike had to release a statement this morning. We are obviously concerned and want to wish I on a speedy recovery. The quality and performance of our products are of utmost importance while this is an isolated occurrence. We are working to identify the issue. But then Puma jumped in they deleted the tweet but come on. This is social media. You can't throw up a tweet, especially one that's gonna throw some shade. And not have everybody notice and have people grab screen shots. So while Puma Puma hoops deleted this tweet. Happened in the Pumas Terry Rozier, even getting in on the action come over to Puma. Everybody had jokes about oh, everyone. Adidas under armor there in. That's the those are the shoe company. Science going to sign with after he leaves Duke this year. Seventy having a little bit of fun at at at Nike's expense because the shoe blows up. We're being honest. I think I think Nike's built up enough. Goodwill over the last three decades of basketball shoes. That we can have some fun with it last night. But after that, it's all going to be forgotten that it was necessarily a Nike shoe that blew up on Zion. And I guarantee it has nothing to do with zion's shoe decision. When he heads to the NBA this

Welcome to brain stuff from how stuff works. Hey, Ren stuff. I'm Lauren vocal bomb. And I'm here today to talk about how family feuds can change the world. For example, if only two brothers named and Rudy dos. Ler had learned to get along Germany's kgab route or dos. Ler might have bested Nike is the world's top sports footwear company today. Instead, the brothers bitter feuding resulted in the brood Ostler brand that's German for dos. Ler brothers being split in half and reborn as a Dita's and Puma which today are the world's second and third top sports shoe businesses eight off or Audie dos. Ler began making shoes and his mother's laundry room shortly after returning home to the Bavarian village of heads Coon oka- following World War One his business did well and his older brother Rudolph or Rudy dos. Ler joined him a few years later to help shy. Audie was the creative force and brains behind the business while extroverted Rudy was these salesmen, the brothers Dassler soon gained a claim for rolling out the first track spikes, but the company really took off after the break. Others persuaded American Olympic athlete Jesse Owens to wear their shoes in the nineteen thirty six Berlin Olympics. He did and he won four gold medals while doing so yet it wasn't quite the triumph. It should have been for the brothers. As things were beginning to sour between the two the bad blooded started a few years earlier in nineteen thirty three when Addy's sixteen year old wife tried to interfere in the business Rudy was not pleased. It didn't help that audience and Rudy's families live together in the same town, home and their wives didn't really get along. But the breaking point came during a World War Two air raid Rudy and his family were tucked into a bomb shelter and as audience family entered Audi said, the dirty bastards are back again. He was purportedly commenting on the Royal airforce planes roaring overhead but Rudy was positive. Audie was referring to his family from there things quickly unraveled when Rudy was called up to serve in the Nazi military in nineteen forty three. He was sure that Audie had arranged it to have him sent away from the factory. Anxious to get back Rudy deserted his post in nineteen Forty-five later when arrested for desertion. He again, blamed ATI who it appears did snitch on him after a few more scuffles. The to split up the company in nineteen forty eight moving assets and employees into one of two competing operations located on opposite sides of the off river that flowed through the town ATI renamed his business. Adidas combining his first and last names Rudy did the same dubbing his Rueda though. He later changed it to Puma soon. Most of the town's citizens were employed by either Adidas or Puma in these siblings, intense rivalry spread throughout the town. If you worked for one company, you did not socialize with employees of the other marrying across enemy lines was strictly forbidden. You only shopped in the stores on the same side as the river as the factory in which you were employed overtime. Adidas far surpassed Puma in sales, thanks to audience creativity and technical acumen, though Puma also did quite well. But while the two were hard at work competing against one another they. Paid no attention to another shoe company Nike that was quietly gaining market. Share today Nike is king of the sports shoe business with thousand seventeen sales of twenty one billion dollars compared to Adidas as ten billion dollars and 'Pumas two billion the brothers did speak to one another a few times later in life. But they never reconciled. Both died in the nineteen seventies and were buried at opposite ends of the local cemetery their feud finally ended in two thousand nine when employees of both companies played together in a friendly soccer match.
