"Health of every woman at the time of entry, but they used to do a pregnancy test as well. The point was that if someone is pregnant, that person will not keep the job. Wow. Well, they indirectly, in the process of Athens, it's safe to check. Indirectly there is to make sure that no pregnant women can get into the factories so that they don't have to pay them a 20 benefit and all that. So there are many, many interesting cases about union busting and things like that. But the brands did realize that it's not working. So they came out with this partnership approach where they started talking about especially the bigger brands they've started talking about. We know that you do several time. We know you have some abusing harassment issues in your factories. We know there are hand and safety consent in your factory. Let's discuss this a list try and solve that together rather than playing that hide and seek game which have been playing for many years and it's not just working and we understand that. And then the COVID hit and then entire partnership model fell apart. Because the partner who you are relying on not to pull your orders suddenly lets you down so there is no trust. Because Branson stopped paying, don't ship my product. They requested for delayed shipment. Huge mistrust happened between the among the brands and the in the manufacturers that it will take time to bring back that crust again and really form a true partnership with this. But to me, I think that's the only way to go forward. I don't think compliance and the policing is never going to help this industry to make sure that the workers and the women who are working the factories are being able to work in a safe working conditions and they are basically human rights are being respected. If it is left as a self regulatory thing and I think that they should do but there's no legal obligation around that. Then it might take a long time. There is a global momentum going on and a general understanding of the consumers, as well as the investors who are investing in this big companies. Also, the brands are realizing that they are much more exposed than ever before. Now, the other is that the government regulations, the Europe is obviously taking the lead in terms of introducing the mandatory human rights due diligence that they can lead in modern slavery. New case taking leads to their showing the pathway that if there is willingness and if there's the right pressure, things can quickly change. So if things are not changing, it's because people who hold support doesn't want to change. Not because they can't change or they don't have the capacity to change is because they don't want to change because they want to make more profit at the expense of someone's life. People run factories want them to be run better, right? They're not all bad trying to exploit everyone. It's just that there's a massive power imbalance. What is supply is want to see? That's a very, very interesting question. I'll tell you a small story. I was in Bangladesh in March and whenever I speak to the owners of the manufacturers and ask them the question that what is the problem, why we can not improve the wages and the facilities for the workers. The common response is that we always want to do that because we understand that that makes good business sense. We want to improve the facilities and the wages of the workers. The reason we can't do so is because the wires are constantly putting us under pressure to reduce price. So we can not play at both end at one end. They're asking us all that compliance. But the other end they're consistently asking us to lower the price. How can we survive under this condition? Now, when I speak to the brands and say that okay, so this is the narrative from the manufacturers. The branches will never do that. We never put downward pressure on price. This is the last thing that we do. We look into quality. We look into delivery. We look into partnership. We make sure that the workers are safe, price, we never put pressure on. So they have completely two different narratives on the same issue. And we have been thinking about how to really resolve that issue. When you negotiate price, can you agree that this is the labor component? So for example, if the price is $10, there are profit, there are material cost overhead. But what is the labor component? Is it $2? $3, can we agree on that? Then we can resolve that problem. Basic concept is very simple. Identify the labor cost and ring fence it. Don't reduce that portion of it. Both the brands as well as the manufacturer can monitor. And to increase the wages that can go up over a period of time, which will purposely stop the blame game. And it's very doable. It is not a rocket science. Paying a living wage is actually not as difficult as it sounds. It's actually very simple. You just need to do the right thing and have the right mindset.

"I think makes her really well suited to doing what she's doing, which in her own words is wanting to marry the worlds of AI and emotional EQ and IQ, I think, is what she said, wanting to marry EQ and IQ and AI. One of the interesting stats that she pointed out was that 93% of how we communicate is nonverbal. But when it comes to AI, we've been focusing on that 7%. And I was really thinking a lot about that, especially as, you know, the last few months we've all been playing with so many various GPT-3 models. And those models, I think, have gotten really good at that 7%, right? Like they're obviously not all the way there, but I think they're pretty good at some of the written stuff. From your perspective, as a technologist, as somebody who follows a lot of these things from having conversations with people like Rana, what do you think we need to do next to attack that other 93%? Those non verbal cues, which become so important to human interaction. Yeah, I think it is maybe the most important question we should be asking right now. So it's easy for me at least. And I think this is true for other people and technology to get really carried away with the capability of a thing. So what it can do or how it can do it, and that's certainly true with these powerful models. I honestly have been even though I've been very, very, very deep in this stuff or a really long time. And we have, you know, in partnership with OpenAI, been I think on the forefront of this stuff for the past handful of years. And so we can even see what we think is coming. I've been surprised that we accomplish as much as we did this year. But even though all of that sort of a fascinating what, like the thing that's really challenging with these things is like what you choose to go do with them. And I think this is some of what Rana is getting at. So yeah, part of what I hope that we have more conversations about in the coming year is how we can build all of this capability into applications where you're serving the user and where you don't actually forget the emotional element. I mean, the thing that we sometimes forget is that we're pretty sophisticated AI systems already that materialize your Twitter feed or figure out what it is that you're going to see on TikTok when you open that app. What those systems optimize for isn't necessarily the full gamut of emotions that sort of a rich human beings, like a lot of it is like, oh, I'm going to show you something sensational to keep you right here in this experience. And so the thing that I hope we can learn from folks like Rana is how we can build these systems in ways where they're provoking the right emotion and where they can take emotional feedback from people to help you help you basically feel the way that you want to feel from interacting with your technology, not feel the way someone else wants you to feel. Like that's the difference between agency and manipulation. I love that. I love that. And you're right. That is the difference between the two and I think that that's certainly what Ron I was talking about some for core values and the things

"Love dancing. And I saw I've been doing it for 6 years. I'm very close to becoming a certified instructor, so I don't know. I think my career to being a Zumba instructor ever, but it brings me joy. It's good exercise, but most importantly, it just makes me I always tell my team. I'll be happier leader. I'll be better leader if you let me do my Zumba class. So don't schedule on top of it. That is super, super cool. Well, thank you so much for taking time to chat with us today. And thank you for what you do. It's really inspiring to hear about your journey and to think that we've got someone like you off tackling these heart problems. Thank you so much for having me. It's a true honor. I appreciate it. Awesome. What a fascinating conversation with Rana el caillou B so one thing that I wanted to talk to you about before we kind of dive into some of the emotion AI stuff is, you know, you always start out these interviews by asking people how they got into tech. And what really struck me with your conversation with Rana was how important it is not just, I think, to have access to certain things, but how important it is to have people who support you in your interests because you have someone who grew up in a time and in a part of the world where not every parent, not every set of parents would be as open to educating their children the way Ron is certainly as open to exposing her to technology the way that they were. And I was really struck by how important that is as an aspect. I think especially when it comes to representation that we sometimes omit a little bit. Yeah, I could not agree more. And I think almost to a person whenever you find someone who is having a successful career in technology or in any other domain, there has to be support somewhere because it's so hard to be successful at anything that is so much pulling you in the other direction. People telling you you can't do it like people trying to get you to doubt yourself just institutional things that either are aggressively or passive aggressively pushing back against what it is you're trying to accomplish normal human emotion like some of the stuff is just sort of hard and people I think are naturally afraid of failing and so figuring out how to get the courage to get on top of that. And that is a lot of hard to deal with all on your own. So having that support, like somebody like hopefully lots of somebody who are there trying to help you help you to actually make it. I think it's really important. And her story is fascinating because she had a lot of things that could have potentially pushed back against her achieving these really ambitious and awesome goals that she had for herself. Absolutely. Absolutely. But I think likewise, her background, but also her interests and the support she had and just the drive shadow within herself.

"But I do feel like my parents were pretty in a way they were very traditional, but they were also kind of very supportive of our education. It's the biggest investment they've made. They put all their money into our education. So I feel very lucky that way. And I can almost draw a straight line from their investment to where I am today. We traveled a lot as kids, they invested in our learning. We went to international schools, so we were very exposed to kind of western way of teaching and thinking, but at the same time, after undergrad, I got married very young. I was 19. And when I then decided to go abroad to Cambridge University to get my PhD, both my parents and my in laws basically said you're married. Now he got us stick with your husband and you can't just leave and go pursue your career. And that was the beginning of this cultural tension between what I really wanted to do in my passion, but then the cultural norms and what society expects from you. And so there's definitely a clash there. Yeah, so that is, I mean, it's super interesting. I mean, I remember for me, I grew up in rural central, Virginia, and I didn't have my mom had gone to in the 60s at the time they called secretaries school and she learned a bunch of administrative skills and was a bank teller before she got pregnant with me and my brother and my dad and my entire lineage were all construction workers. And so I just remember being very tentative about moving away to go pursue my career. So it was super hard for me and I didn't do it until after undergrad to leave where I was raised to go do something that I was passionate about. It sounds like you not only did that, but you also had all of this other stuff going on that made it hard. Like how on earth did you muster the courage to do this? Yeah, it takes a lot of courage and also a leap into the unknown, right? When you don't really know how it's going to work out, often in my case, my family kept. You know, there was a lot of fear. They basically kept saying, no, no, no. So I also moved to Cambridge University right around September 11th, where, you know, and at the time I used to wear a head scarf so I was very clearly Muslim and there was just a lot of fear. And to me, I don't know when you're excited about something and you're passionate about it, it becomes the best motivator, I think. Yeah. But I mean, still, I mean, it's really inspiring to hear you talk about this because I know. Those sometimes are the hardest things. It's less about can I get an a in this class or like am I technically good enough? It's like, can I, you know, everything else that's going on in my life? Can I just make it work? And there's just so much stuff that's going on in everyone's lives and you're young and inexperienced. So anyway, I just always love to celebrate these stories about people who have figured it out and talking about it, I think, helps serve as a role model for other folks who can see, yeah, Rana was able to overcome a bunch of stuff to go do this amazing set of things. So it's just great to hear.

Jason Belich Explains How the RNC Is Lying to Us
"The issue that I want to work through with you. And I agree with everything you're saying. The head of the RNC, Rana and others, they are communicating the exact opposite. They're saying they've made unprecedented investments in data. They say they have GOP data trust. They say they have the most technologically advanced party more than the Democrats. This is what they tell their donors. This is what they tell the RNC committee members. This is what they tell the public. Are they telling the truth? No. They're just not. And they may actually believe that they're okay. A part of the part of the really big problem here is if you look at the GOP ecosystem and technology in the GOP oriented companies in general, you see a lot of people who are political those first. You get lots of history degrees and politics, but not a lot of comp site agrees or science degrees or math degrees. So what you have there is an inversion of skill where you have otherwise good people who know the politics and attempt to automate their systems to automate themselves with technology, but what you're not getting is you're not getting innovations from technology being brought into politics on the Republican side.

Charlie Kirk: Trump Team Should Have Done More to Defeat McDaniel
"Rank and file, the base of the party, could not even afford a room. At the RNC meeting where ronna mcdaniel won reelection. And a lot of people are upset at Donald Trump over this, including Charlie Kirk, take a listen, cut two. When I was walking the halls and I was shaking hands, one after the other said, well, Charlie, I'm a little bit confused. Mar-a-Lago is here. Some of the top Trump lieutenants are here advocating for Rana. And it became abundantly clear that ronna was the choice of Mar-a-Lago. That the current RNC regime that loses and wastes your money and sends you emails and hates you, might have got across the finish line because Mar-a-Lago advocated for it. Now, I'm a huge Trump actor and I remain that. I think it was a mistake to do that. I would have liked to see Donald Trump do the exact opposite and send his lieutenants for change at the RNC. Not to continue with this ronna Romney pattern of losing. And so that was really demoralizing. I'm not going to lie. Here I am trying to be your voice for the populist nationalist conservative movement, 98% of us want to see some sort of change. I get emails from you guys saying Charlie, I give a $100 a month that I don't have. Thank you for going to Dana point to try to figure out what the heck is going on. And here I am learning that the guy that I'm backing in 2024 enthusiastically, by the way, because I believe that he's going to upset the establishment and that he's a true conservative that his lieutenants at the very least, and I don't know how involved he was, but you can connect some dots is the one working the halls. I think it's a big mistake. I do.

"Of what the economy looks like, right? If they think it doesn't feel right, then they want it to be out of the data by experts calling it a recession. If they think it's okay and they don't know what everybody's going on about, they're happy that people say it's not. It was that your impression as well. Yes, actually you've summed up what most of them were saying. Like the language really doesn't matter, but what people are asking in short is what is going on. And what are we supposed to do as consumers as people who are in this economy, they just are not really concerned about the language, whether it's a recession or not, they just want to know what is going on and what is expected of us. And I think one of them must have said that their learning to humanize these stories, whereas for most of them, they were so used to writing for a niche audience. You know, they were writing for people who understood how stock market works. They were writing for people who actually understood the business. They used to intervene economies. They used to interview people who know how the Federal Reserve works. And they're used to giving that to their audience who they assume and understands that they are not so used to talking to ordinary people, even myself. But then now it's the ordinary people who are asking what is going on. And some of them admitted that they are struggling with language, they are struggling with packaging in a way that is going to be relevant to the people who are asking this question.

"And what was surprising to me was not only the true sort of incredulity. I don't think he was trying to be nefarious. I think he just really thought, hey, we're building a bridge. We're going to call a few engineers. And we're not going to ask the people who are driving over the bridge or the people who are funding the bridge. You know, what they might think. And I looked around the room and it was a bunch of beat reporters, and nobody really bad at a 9. Nobody was scribbling and I thought, oh my God. That capture both of the official by the industry, but by proxy the journalists by the official by the industry was quite profound. Yeah, and it's like the normal rules are suspended. I mean, you wouldn't do this in politics. If you're writing about somebody who is trying to pass a law that affected people, you would go talk to the people who were affected by the law, right? Yeah. And you would sort of take the legislator and the legislation as the beginning of the reporting process. And I think too often in business news, that step isn't taken. Whatever the company say, or whatever The Economist says or whatever the spokesman says, it's sort of the end of the road. And I just don't know when that came to be or why that came to be. Do you have any thoughts on that? Well, I do, actually. I mean, I think that this is very much part of the cult of The Economist, which I think is part of a post Thatcher Reagan trickle down revolution kind of a thinking at which point the economics profession itself as we know became much more not only mathematically driven. I mean, it has always been somewhat mathematically driven, but it became more about a very narrow siloed view of shareholder value. You know, as long as stock prices are going up, as long as consumer prices are going down, everything's working, there is no problem. All this can be mathematically modeled. There was a not a sense that, hey, we live in a really messy world in which people exist and they're not always rational or they're not always rational in the way the models think they will be. Power exists. And that can't be modeled at all. Journalists get very intimidated and have, frankly, been pushed in that direction by the experts and I put that in quotation marks that like to use the language of expertise to obstacle in many cases and to confuse issues.

"So a week or so ago, I wrote a newsletter for CJR about Davos, and the coverage of Davos and frankly how much I hated it. And what the coverage told us about bigger flaws in the way that business reporters are covering the economy. It's like there's a disconnect between what I read and what I experience and hear people talking about, having to do with the state of business and the state of the economy. And I'm curious why what I see isn't better reflected. So I'm really happy to be joined in this conversation by Rana ruha. She's the associate editor and global business columnist for the Financial Times. Ron has been covering the economy in the U.S. and around the world for three decades during that time she's written a few books, one about the 2008 recession, which we'll talk about. One about big tech and her most recent book, which came out last fall, talks about economic localization. Rana is very good at distilling big ideas into information that's directly related to real life. That's why we thought she'd be the perfect person to discuss how business journalists should be thinking more directly about their readers. Welcome Rana. Ronna, thank you very much for joining us. Oh, thanks for having me. I thought a good place to start would be to talk about Davos. You didn't go this year? I didn't. I decided that last May was my last Davos and having done 2020 or so. I can't really remember if it was 2021 years. I feel I've done my time in the minds, and I'm done now. What is your problem with it? Gosh, where to begin. I mean, I'm tempted to quote Jill Abrams, and I don't know if I'm allowed to say this in my podcast, but I guess you can edit me out that it's a corrupt circle jerk, but I do think that she captured something important about both the demographics, which despite efforts over the last few years are just unbelievably old white male, but also the psychology, which is,

Tyler Bowyer Shares the Latest Updates on the RNC Race
"Boyer here, who's going to be one of the voters on Friday, he is not a swing voter. Tyler, what is the latest in the RNC race? Man, that was quite the letter that you read. From Mike ryden. And we've been hearing that from all over the place, not just from donors, but from the grassroots more importantly. And nothing has really changed since the beginning of this thing. Since the beginning we saw the grassroots has been solidly in the camp for change. And really the only people that I think are standing in the way or supportive of that is the one 68. So as we brought up just as a refresh for everybody, this three votes from every state and territory is a National Committee man, a National Committee woman and a state party chair. Those are the three votes that determine who becomes the RNC chair. And the race is down to this Friday. It's down to Rana versus harmeet, Dylan versus Mike lindell. It looks like right now, Mike lindell. Probably has probably about a handful of votes, I think, on the RNC right now, from everything that we've seen. We've had a few people come out and vocal support, not many. Harm me, I think, is doing a little bit better than that. I think she is going to sail through what would become the first vote because you have to win a 50% plus majority. What's that number then? So when it's 85 votes. So that's the magic number. That's

Harmeet Dhillon Wants to Get the GOP Back on a Winning Footing
"Us through the math. Where do you think we're at right now realistically? I mean, ronna says she has a 110 votes. I think that's a bunch of nonsense. I think it's probably within ten to 15 swing voters. Is that about right? Yeah, I think that's right. And so there are quite a few members we continue to work on them and call them quite a few. I had a great conversation this morning with one member who said, you know, had been previously committed to Rana, who said, I like what I heard. I'm going to keep an open mind and we should talk more in Dana point. You mentioned Dana point, we have these meetings that are at these lavish $1000. Yeah. Yeah, I know that's going to end if I'm the chair of the RNC. I think one of our last meeting where we elected Rana two years ago was at Amelia island and, you know, it was a sort of a leftover booking that somehow we couldn't cancel, but we blew $3 million on that meeting, which is ridiculous, and we need better negotiations on these things so that we don't get stuck with contracts. We can't get out of. So, you know, yeah, I mean, I think we should be focusing on raising money from donors and that not blowing it on ourselves, but actually using it to win elections. And there was the joke back in the day that, you know, Republicans would wear the red cloth, the cloth coat, the sturdy cloth coat, and be economical and hard nosed about it. That's how our party needs to run to, not like, you know, Beverly Hills divorcing. Yes. That's well said.

Harmeet Dhillon Joins Charlie to Make Her Case for Taking Over the RNC
"Joining us now is harmeet Dylan, who is running for chair of the RNC, this should not be difficult. But here we are. Welcome to the program. Thanks for having me, Charlie. Harmeet, I first want to compliment you for your courage and your willingness because the people that are coming after you, they are so nasty, they are so terrible. In fact, I pounded the table last week of a Politico article where they were attacking your Sikh heritage. And I grew up with Sikhs and some of the most beautiful, amazing people that I were honored to call Friends growing up were seek. And obviously it's leaked from people that want to attack you. So the nastiness being thrown at you is incomprehensible. And it's kudos to you for your courage for stepping up and you're willingness. Walk us through the state of the race, 11 days, we have a failure as chair of the RNC. We got to get rid of her. What's the latest? Well, thank you. So the latest is, I jumped into this race just a little over a month ago after our chair ronna mcdaniel basically is refusing to leave. Normally after you lose a presidential race, you actually do leave. So that was two years ago, but she promised us a final and third term. And so now that I see all these members lining up behind her, we jumped in and I have now over a dozen members of the RNC actively making phone calls with me to help whip the votes. There are only a 160 voters in this election. I'm one of them and I will be voting for change and voting for myself. And so the job is to convince people who are supporting Rana, as well as people who are undecided to support me. And I'm happy to say that her numbers are going down and our numbers are going up. And now that it's a competitive horse race, some folks who are willing to support her because there was no choice, have kept an open mind, and they want to see which way the wind blows. That is, you know, it's not exactly profiles and courage in some way. And so we're trying to encourage people to actually get off the fence

Mike Lindell or Harmeet Dhillon for RNC Chairperson?
"A concern that one of our listeners has emailed us that I think is important to navigate. Is there worried that you and harm meat are going to split the America first vote? Now I don't know how big of a deal that is because a vote not for Rana actually just lowers the threshold for Rana. Walk us through that, Mike. Actually, it's the opposite of what they're saying. It's very important that we both are in this race because when you get to when you get to California and when they vote on the 27th, you have to have 85 of the one 68. So, and I believe that there are people, as I've been talking to members and they're saying, I'm voting for you, Mike. They believe in me. Everything I've done and in harmony and it's getting the same thing and she's talking to them all and so let's just, between the two of us, we need to keep, if you keep ronna under 85 on the first vote, remember, this doesn't now you're just going to the next vote. The bottom person does not get taken off, Charlie. So the vote you just keep going votes imposed by believe back with reince priebus, it took 7 votes. Now, if harm I mean, if Iran is under 85, which I believe she's sitting now around 70 75, that's when I'm, you know, by my best estimations. And also I want to tell you one. There's no machines in this vote, everybody. And it is a, it is a secret vote. So people can say all they want, they're out there, you know, they might say just like they do with their president. You might have some going, I'm not going to vote for Mike lindell or you might have some say, I'm voting for Rhonda, but they're really not voting for Ron. Because no one's going to know, and that secret vote ballot goes in.

Bryan Williams Is Running to Become Chair of the Ohio Republican Party
"RNC race that is going to happen on one 27 is directly tied to what's happening in Congress. You see, Kevin McCarthy, Mitch McConnell, and Rana mcdaniel Romney. All three of them are different, but similar in the sense that they are the highest ranking Republicans in the House, the Senate, and of course running the Republican Party. And the grassroots is angry. We are very upset right now. We do not want things to continue as they have $1.7 trillion omnibus bill, losing the U.S. Senate. It is a pattern of losing our country, losing elections and ronna Romney running the RNC, who has personally attacked me and turning point, believes she's entitled to continue to be RNC chair, despite loss after loss after loss. Well, joining us now is someone who's running for the state party chair of Ohio, who is behind her meet Dylan and will not vote for ronna Romney coming up on one 27. Brian, welcome to the program. Thank you. Good to be here. Tell us why you're running and the dynamics that are kind of unfolding in Ohio and why that has national implications. Well, I'm running for a vacancy in the chairmanship in Ohio for a lot of the same reasons that there is a challenge being brought to run in Washington. We win elections here in Ohio, but we're making it a little bit more difficult. And we also have this kind of swamp like maneuver within Ohio that preordained who gets through primaries and so that's those are local state issues. But one of the major issues in this chairman's fight is who's going to, who will you vote for at the end of the month for a national chairman? I'm the only candidate the race that has endorsed her meat Dylan. Charlie, you just nailed it. I mean, that's why we need change. Three unsuccessful elections in a row. How many years do you stick with the coach before you say it's time to make a change? Yeah, and you're right. You guys do win elections in Ohio and praise God JD Vance got across the finish line and thank you for your help with that. But it was a little underwhelming in the house results in Ohio. Was it not? Yeah, we lost we lost three seats.

"I have a lot of issues with ronna McDonald right now not least of which is the fact that she has now overseen three losing election cycles And yes I do consider this a loss even though we technically did win the house It was so far below expectations that I don't think anyone should be really celebrating And I have spoken to some activists and party organizers who point a lot of fingers at the RNC for its failure to really take up this red wave They didn't have a whole lot of money because Iran has been really dependent on the joint fundraising committee with Trump in order to get any donations into the RNC Their ground game in terms of where they sent their field staffers was completely inept They sent more field staffers to red states in some cases than they did to some of these toss up races And they also had this really weird scheme to capture what they call delinquent voters and I'm writing about this for the spectator right now The piece will be out tomorrow morning but what they refer to as a delinquent voter is basically if someone voted a month before the election in 2020 and hadn't voted let's say two weeks before the midterm election in 2022 the RNC was going to reach out to them and make sure that they voted But why were the efforts spent on targeting people who were probably going to vote anyway as opposed to trying to get the undecideds and independents who usually decide these elections So I think everything about their strategy here was just really backwards and a lot of it comes down to the fact that Rana has not proven herself in any of these battles and yet somehow keeps control of the leadership there at the RNC It's really horrible that she hasn't had to answer for any of this

"And the attacks against you are because you're an investigative journalist. It's because you're a Muslim. It's because you're a woman. So phrases like prostitute and the horrific death threats and rape threats. Is it true that you wrote a letter to be published in case of your death? I did. I did. I left a letter with my brother and a friend of mine, just in case something would happen to me. I wanted the letter to be published across newspapers, because that's a legit fear that I have and that that's a legit view that I had a couple of days ago. And what have you written in a letter? Sorry, what did you write in the letter? It's painful. It's extremely painful. It's a letter of dejection. It's a letter of hopelessness where I have lost faith and not just the not just the government of the day, but the people in my country and my fellow journalists and that's to sum up the letter. In case something was to happen to me. And rona, I also read that your 75 year old father suggested that you will leave the country. Would you? Would you consider leaving if you're under so much threat? No, I would never yes. My 75 year old father who's also been made a co accused in my cases and suffers from dementia when does not he does. He's extremely proud of my work and he has suggested that I leave the country, but the point is there are a lot of people in the country who plays great trust in me and me leaving the country at this point of time. It would be a betrayal of their faith in me and my journalism. So that is not an option that I would like to consider.

It's got a phenomenal performance. And it's cost effective. You can retrain it as well, which for things like create and conversational AI solutions or maybe you want to do it for something in your contact center or whatever, being able to reach reimbursed on your industry, your kind of lexicon, your language, and all kinds of stuff is crucial.

And what they do is specifically is conversational intelligence. And the possibilities we've symbolic AI are absolutely endless. I mean, one of the use cases they have is that the technology will sit inside a call and when you're doing automated outbound dial in and what it does is it listens for answer phones and it recognizes an answer for and it will just skip to the next the next call. There's a whole bunch of stuff that it does. There's so much data in the conversations that you have. As we're going to find out today, as well.

So that's the UX world forward slash subscribe and a conversation that is about to happen will be right up your if you are interested in the whole NLP space. We are trying to run a gujar who is the CEO of behavioral signals all about emotional AI, which is a topic that you can probably tell by my voice. I'm pretty excited. So welcome, Rana. Hi, Ken. Thanks for having me. Thanks for being here. I appreciate it. I really do. So Rana, you are obviously the chief exec of behavior signals, but you do all sorts of battles of things. You will invest there, you are right. You are a mentor. You do a whole bunch of things aside from behavioral signals, but so maybe as we can start with an introduction to yourself and then we can follow on that with an introduction to behavioral signals and what you do. So first of all, tell us about yourself what's your what your career being like and how did you get to create in behavioral signals? Yeah, for sure. I have to say, I mean, I've had the fortune experience to be a part of several iconic product journeys. During the early years of my career, I worked at a Logitech chronos, among others, where I was evolved in the development of some best in class products, which enjoyed tremendous commercial successes. One of the most exciting ones was the precursor of chrome steak back in the day was called Google TV. And in 2012, I was recruited to be part of a court turnaround team for an iconic company called cricketer Inc and I cricket led the initiative to build a first of its kind innovative products for the DIY community and affected the turnaround of cricketer from negative 100 million position, which was when we took it on to profitability plus 12 mil. So it's about a 112 million inhibitor in a little bit over two years. And so long story short, let me quickly build a successful IPO in 2021 that 4.4 billion valuation. So great success story. Well, I also found it a fast company called ties back in 2014 where we built some early machine learning models to predict the commodity prices in the future. And we set out to improve our kayak business processes for a very well established industry, which was especially chemicals market, we went after we built a specialized vertical sales for that. And it was an opportunity to create immediate value and a sector screaming for innovation. And we enjoyed rapid growth. We got quite by alchemy in 2016. And then I came on board as a CEO at vehicle signals in December 2019. And it's been an exciting, exciting journey since then. Wow, interesting. You said you enjoyed rapid growth. It doesn't always, I imagine there was some pressure involved in that as well though. It was all entirely enjoyable. I imagine that when you grow so fast, it's quite difficult to keep open things how was that experience? Yeah, I mean, the journey at the end of the day, you reminisce with a lot of love and nostalgia and you're excited for those memories when you're in the process, certainly there's a lot of ups and downs. You've got to go through the trust. And Ben Horowitz famous quote is very true. CEO of startup, you sleep like a baby. That is like you cry yourself to sleep every night. And so there's a lot of excitement, I'd say. It's not always good excitement. You're building something. Which is not predictable. And there's a lot of variables that you don't control and there's exciting successes and completely devastating failures. But..

"So before you go, I wanted to see what would you say to an audience member, who is thinking about starting an online business, or they are in the early stages of online business? What would you say to them? If they want to learn how to be more persuasive online? To a very good competitor analysis wage but not just what people are doing but how they are doing. So if you look at my phone now somebody were to steal my phone, they'd probably would think oh my God. You know I'd find all these risque pictures of rain or whatever. I know you would find like thousands of screenshots. I'm always screenshotting everything from how people reply to people how people you know caption things how people the types of photos are using. I think sometimes we want to look at everything surface-level but okay, everyone's looking at everything surface-level but how deep are you going? You know how how you know boss At school, it has to do a lot of research, right? It had to always ask why, why why? So, when I'm looking at other people's stuff, although I wouldn't I don't think you should focus too much on other people's things, but in the beginning, you definitely need to look at how the people who you admire, how they're communicating with their audience, and you know, what are they doing? But at the same time, what aren't they doing? Because then that can be a way for them to differentiate yourself, right? So, let's say, for me, it was like, you know, a lot of podcasters are using Twitter, but you know, how are they really using Instagram? And if they are using Instagram, how long they leveraging Instagram. So you definitely want to do a competitor analysis, but always look for what aren't people doing by doing that deep dive into their content off though? That's brilliant. See now, now my mind is racing, talk to people, like, I think some people just are scared to like, you know, call up people who are not even call up. People just ask them. Well hey what's one thing that you would want from me? That you don't have like don't be scared to communicate with its audience that you do have even.

"That's always who my content was targeted towards. So, I would work with people who needed help putting their content work with Britney to, we're trying to connect with that target audience and then when it came to me, working here, you know, my day job but I really got to do here is, when I got to my job, there was no marketing department before. So I was really part of the founding team of helping to bring marketing into, you know, Logistics and operations, and just getting to experiment with a lot of different things and taking my own personal interest and kind of getting the funding of a, you know, organization to explore and to test and to measure and to really hone in on my different skills. Is one of the biggest things, I think I've been able to learn from marketing that has been able to transfer over to everything else that I do is the importance of really understanding who your Target dog. Answer is right because all your content is going to be been distributed to in catered, to that audience, and then figuring out what's the, what's the appropriate channels by? Which you distribute that information? So wage here, I specialize in email marketing automation. So, you know whether that be your CRM, which is Salesforce which is like a sales prospecting tool or whether that be your email marketing client, and I use par. And I also use MailChimp is really understanding how to leverage that to build community and how to ultimately tie it into your overall goal. So you know for my mom podcast, My overall goal is downloads right. How do I increase downloads, how do I increase my community? And for work it's how do you increase your sales at the end of the day? Yeah, one of the month, the coolest things about what you've done is your ability to position yourself in a way to, to get big opportunities. And as a fellow podcaster I was I was looking at kind of your birth. And seeing how your your podcasts was constantly being featured, not only in in smaller sections like the black voices and business section, but also like on the homepage of Life. Yes. And I was under always wondering like, how is he doing this? How does this happen? And so but after we spoke a few times last year and earlier this year you showed strategy and it was it was just absolutely brilliant. And I hope what I'm hoping is that you can tell the audience a little bit, how you were able to leave this strategy in with what you're already doing while serving your podcast community. So well off and while reaching up to the higher-ups of iTunes. So the first thing that came to mind when you said, you know, how is it that she's getting all these opportunities? I think it's, you know, it can be very daunting when you'll see other people accomplishing things and I've even done that myself looking at other podcasters and wondering, like, how can I do that? So, I think the model that I've had is like this idea of thinking big butts table, Small, right? So when you think about the whole Apple podcast feature, I have always seen that in my read. You know, getting featured on the Apple podcast, formally used to be called iTunes off. ITunes podcast getting featured, there was the best thing that could happen for your podcast because it's the largest distribution platform for a podcast. So I said to myself. Okay, how do I get home. Well, there has to be somebody that runs the whole Apple Pie cast Department, right?.
