Paint it out boxing and creativity with Robyn Spodek-Schindler
"Okay ravin. Welcome to the podcast. Thank you. I'm so happy to be here so lovely to have you. Thank you again for coming on. And i'm really excited to dive into a lot of the topics we can cover today absolutely. I'm excited as well. I think this'll be great. Yes yes well. I wonder if you can tell us. A little bit about your. What kind of drew you to work with children. So that's a really great question. And i love when people ask me because it kind of leaves into how i found art therapy to I basically grew up working with kids. I was one of those people who was sitting a camp counselor. I'm the youngest in my family. So i never had little brothers or sisters to take care of but i just gravitated towards it and other areas of my life and when i was probably an elementary school. I made it very clear. I wanted to be a pediatrician. I wanted to be a doctor. Helps take care of the kid. And let's fast forward a little into college where i was speaking in organic chemistry. You get on that pre med track. I just could not it was. It was killing me in every sense of the word and i was crushed because it was like my dream so i had no idea. How am i going to work with. Kids didn't want to be a teacher. Like i knew. I had options. But i wasn't really sure and i always been in artistic percent and i've always loved doing art and my sister one of my sisters said to me. You know i heard about this. You know feel up and coming field. And i thought you should look into it and when i looked into art therapy and i realize that i still care for kids do it in. That's really amazing. Creative way i mean. My mind was blown. Because i combined everything that i loved here. I wanna help kids. I wanna help kids feel better. I love doing our. I love working with families. I love the interest of mental health. This just all really kind of came together in a wonderful way for me and it became my calling so i knew almost instantly. This is how. I'm going to help kit. This is how i'm going to do it. And i just followed through from there and it was pretty amazing yet. That is fantastic. And like what an you know to. It's so painful. Realize something like that when you have that dream and it's like wait a second. This isn't this doesn't feel right. Like i in organic chemistry or biology and then but then out of that you know coming to this like really beautiful thing where you can serve in the way that you've always felt like you wanted to write. It really makes you believe in everything happens for a reason. And that's a very big part of what i believe in and so at the moment yes. I was definitely crossed and confused. Because i knew i wanted to help kids and i knew i wanted to work with them. I didn't realize there were so many other capacty that and when this fell into my last so to speak it was it was just instantaneous. I was sold. I knew that this was what i wanted to do. And now even currently. I mean i love working with kids. And what their families and people always ask me. Do you ever see yourself working with adults. And it's not that. I like working with adults because i do. My main goal really is to help kids. That's just what i see for myself.
As restrictions lift, some tips to stay COVID free
"I'm health reported teigen tayla and journalists daughter norman swan it's thursday the third of december and it's really ex- encouraging to say all around australia. Different restrictions is starting to lift. We sort of feel like we're coming into a different phase of this weird pandemic that we've had but when not out of the woods yet away so what sorts of things are we. Okay to sort of go okay. We're not going this hard on these restrictions anymore. And what things should we continue to do. Well the first thing. I'd say is to coronas listeners. We'd love to hear from you. What do you think once covered nine thousand nine hundred over. What will stay with you in terms of change behavior. Will you wear masks outside. We mask when you've got cold symptoms when you don't have to be tested anymore. We're gonna elbow each other. Ravin shake hands or we kissy kissy to complete strangers. You'll tell us what's going we'd love to hear from you. What changes you think you're gonna make in the long term because the memory of this pandemic will live with us forever and one of the weeds. Silver linings about this year has been that while we've been very distant from each other and there's been a big shadow over the year. We've also had less of the other diseases that we would just consider to be normal especially threat. Uinta wireless calls and flew seem to be circulating these ca compared to previous is so then the question is what do we do. Before fully immunized assuming immunization prevents transmission and that could be a year from now. It might take a long time or could be remarkably fast but nonetheless. We're still got a few months to go. We are not going to get vaccines probably to march being brought rolled out. We don't have the urgency of the united states and in person might come back to that a little bit onto more on tomorrow's current cast so kind to your question. I think at the moment if you get symptoms. You should be coming forward for testing. That's gotta stay with us right through and we're all fully immunized that can't change. I think that's not getting into spaces. That are too crowded unless you really have to being wary of poorly ventilated spaces. Indoor spaces i'm talking about those are things that are going to as you say to prevent getting the com code prevent is getting flu and we'll protect us. In general we certainly need to continue with a qr codes are in those jurisdictions that have them. That's going to be a very important part of our insurance in case there's an outbreak and i think that just prudent social distancing with people that you don't know you don't have symptoms and if you've got any symptoms you stay away from the people until you've got tested was would be the main things i think hygienes important question that you keep on washing your hands regularly trying to touch your face. That's very good hygiene advice. Which should last beyond the pandemic being careful off surfaces sneeze into your your elbow. Those are the sorts of things that will stay with me moving forward. So we've actually got a few questions about this nominee one of them's from someone in new south wales saying we allowed to hug yet or should social distancing still the norm. We can sit next to each other at restaurants but not hug which seems conflicting. Well i have to confess that with almost no virus circulating in new south wales which is where i'm based. I've started to hug. Shoot me down in flames. I've started hug. And it's only recently though confessions coming to go back to the jim and i'm still a little bit nervous in the gym because people are breathing heavily and washed on things very carefully to stay away from from the others as much as i can. I've started to hug but that trusts that. Somebody's not going to any symptoms and kind of know the person that i'm hugging a stranger and i'm not kissing so don't kiss people. I don't
Australia Warns Coronavirus Outbreak in Victoria Will Take Weeks to Tame
"Talk about Victoria another day three hundred seventy four new cases yesterday when on. These numbers going to start coming down where two weeks Wuhan took about a month I think for things to turn around. Remember. We were lucky in the beginning of March and in March. We got in, and it was mostly overseas. Spread rather than hardcore communities sprayed. which is what it wasn't Han, so we're watched better comparing ourselves to community spread. Around the world drive of any Saudi, what we experienced back in March and could take a month. It's not showing signs of turnaround. I think they must be getting close to hardening up the lockdown because the longer you wait. To see whether you're absolutely sure, it's turning around and flattening the longer it's going to be at the other end the Victorian authorities sort of sounding very confident in that press conferences. is it that they know more than what we then what we get as audience members or direction they maybe just putting on a bright face. Who knows it looks like a brave face when you see their body language. They do no more than we know. They're probably not releasing a lot of the genomics until they're absolutely sure. There's the contact tracing coming in, and they're probably not releasing that. And! You'd have to say that. We Tori is not that transparent. There's always cases being reclassified being investigated being tied down. It's very hard when you're observing this to catch up as to just how much community spread there is, but still new outbreaks particularly in each care. Yes, they're single cases. The do talk about the reproduction number coming down. The trouble with that is the reproduction number. Although we've talked about the divided over yesterday or the day before the trouble production numbers, you can get obsessed with it that it's coming down there for individuals and not spreading to as many people because behaviors changing, but it's very susceptible at relatively low numbers, which is I, mean it sounds a lot. Several hundred eases cumulating fast, which means that we're getting to thousands of people with active corona virus accumulatively. Is that you can still get individual variation all you need. To Stop. Your value is one person to go out and to go to a family occasion with Corona virus. One, person to be a super spreader in an unfortunate circumstance. One person, take it away from aged care and get on a tram and and pass it on and tram, and then it just goes off and you could be as happy as you like about your volume being low suddenly you're off and running again. And this goes to how long you wait coming back to what we just said. Is that Sydney University? Modeling from early in the pandemic showed for every day that you wait to really become strict with your lockdown. It's a week added on the other end of the pandemic. And, so you go in sooner rather than later and tougher is on Victorians are Victorian listeners. It may be that they really do need to get on top of this now. Ravin hanging on because the more they hang on a on a wish, prayer maybe dangerous in terms of how much virus there is around and they did say today. Didn't they tell you that? You could don't. You can multiply by ten. The number of cases there'd be in Victoria if you hadn't done the lockton up until now, and I'm sure that's right,
Do I really need a multivitamin? Featuring Leland Jones
"Today we're excited to talk to Leland Jones. About what supplement he uses and how they've changed his life Leland. Thank you so much for joining us today to talk about this super important subject. These ravin me and I appreciate it of course so supplements are something that I think. A lot of people are skeptical toward so. Why does our body needs supplements or does our needs supplements in addition to the food that we already eat now? That's good and I can see why a lot of people are feeling that way and to be honest. I felt that way myself. So before Doe Tara. I had a different career and so what I did is I went to like one of those big stores that you can buy things in bulk and I actually brought the supplements and I put them on my desk. Because I felt like if I had him on my desk I could remind myself to take more often and I co worker. Who showed me about the pros and cons of these different supplements and so that I learned was one our soil's that we're currently using to grow our crops are not nutrient dense like they used to be and the other thing is. We're supposed to be eating like we're supposed to be eating healthier than we are. I'm sure there's no shock dating it's like your plate of food for dinner is supposed to be like a rainbow of colors of different vegetables and unfortunately that is not the way we are eating as much as we should so yeah. We need to be taking supplements one because people like me aren't eating healthy and to the food isn't doesn't have the nutrients that they once did. And then the other aspect is. We need those supplements to replenish our body of Fill in the gaps of all the things we are missing so yeah I would say it's very much important and that is so interesting and you're definitely not alone. I know for myself. My plate never looks like a rainbow so there definitely are gaps. That I'm sure most people have that need to be filled. So you mentioned other supplements that you taking before you were introduced to Tara. Are All supplements created equal? Not at all not in. I was actually really. I don't know if the word is shocked but I was really discouraged when I learned that all these supplements like you like a lot of people are wasting a lot of money and so not all supplements are the same and does tearing and we all know this like tears. Mission is to be pure like everything's one hundred percent pure may have supplements that are also infused with essential oils. It is the perfect combination. And so the only thing I love about the Tara's that I don't just have to tell you about their supplements like once you take you can feel the difference to them and I've taken like I said I've taken supplements from companies. I guess other brands and I never did feel a difference but I thought what I was. Doing was being proactive with my health and it turns out a lot of those supplements taking did nothing to had no had no real significant benefit to my body and so with Doe Tara. Yeah it's it's a huge difference and with that so you talked about not being able to feel a difference. What Canada vitamin do for your body when you found one that is working for you. What is the difference that you see? There's a couple of things one I feel during the day. I have an increase in energy so I feel like that's their like that increase but also like mental capacity. I feel like I have more clarity of thought like I don't feel like I'm like I don't know if the word is like fog but you know how sometimes you sometimes I feel like I. I've woken up but I'm still half asleep in the whole day that way and then when it's time to go to bed I'm like wide awake and so I feel like a multivitamin is helped me with that when I'm awake during the day. I don't have that fog in my brain and I have more of the clarity and the other thing that I like about it is I like having an increase in my quality of sleep so I like when I go to bed at night. I feel like I'm sleeping better. I like during the day I feel like I'm more awake more alert. I have more energy. So that's those are the benefits. I enjoy those are definitely benefits that I think everyone would like to have in their life a little bit more energy better sleep and I just feeling like your body is working the way that it should. I think that's incredible so Leland. Can you walk us through? What supplements Tara has that? You've utilized in your life. Oh it's kind of a long list. That's okay so my wife. My wife was the one that introduced me to essential oils. And then after I started using essential oils I had this belief in Tara and so when I stumbled upon the lifelong vitality three different. You know the three different bottles. That's what I started taking and so the three different ones so that's your micro plex the EMC. So that's your Vitamins and Minerals Your Z. Omegas of that's Exit Omega. That's the other one. And then the healthy are S. That helps you on a cellular level. So those were the three. I started taking and to be honest. I'm not trying to contradict myself but the first couple of I was taking them. I just Kinda felt the same like I didn't like my wife was like really hyping it up and I was like you know I kinda just feel the same here and it wasn't until I didn't take him for a day is when I felt the big difference. The other time I felt a huge difference is we had gone on a family vacation. And we're at an amusement park and we're you know how that is you're standing by your cooking in the Sun. You're spending tons of money. Your kids are yelling at you right and I had brought the lifelong vitality but I had forgotten to take them. The first two days are numbered taking it the third day. 'cause we went to this amusement park for four days so on the third day. I remember taking a n feeling such a huge difference in those different areas of feeling more clarity and feeling like I had an increase in energy and things like that so those were the three that I started taking and then I was introduced. A couple of other ones like So Deep Blue Rub. That's a that's the oil deep. Blue Oil is rob. Is is amazing. Use probably daily but then does tear came out with a pill form so it's the Deep Blue Polythene on complex. And just so you know. I had a practice that word times in the mirror. Like I haven't even. I can read that where let alone pronounce it off. So that's another one that I use a lot and then like right now. I'm picturing Mike pillowcase. In the kitchen so I use the lifelong vitality deep blue ocean terrorism. I you tear after every meal usually just one one pill but if I eat like I'm not trying to admit anything here but like I like I like being five. Ako waffles for breakfast like that doesn't even faze me and my wife is like you eat like you're like like a little kid that ran away from home and so. I do a bunch of junk food and so if I eat five. Ako Awful Sushi. I happen to. I'll I'll take more terrorism. Now take anywhere from one to three terrorism's so usually if I feel like I feel like I can add like that heavy weight in my stomach like I shouldn't have eaten that many offals. That's when I know I should take more than one or two times. And so that's another one. I take all the time another one. I love is DDR prime. And I don't know if it's my favorite but it's up there. Ddr prime they make it in a soft Gel and they also have an oil. And I know you know that but I just like to repeat a twenty but I take that one and that one I feel amazing with and then once in a while I by the might owe to the Max and I use it to the Max is really interesting to me so even though I eat a ton of junk food and I admit that I actually don't drink caffeine because have seen has a weird effect on me like if I drink caffeine like right now. It's like Kinda morning time you know early at early morning or I'm sorry late morning if I drink caffeine there's a chance I'll be awake until like three or four in the morning. It's like I think some people would enjoy something like that. I hate it and the other thing it does to me. It makes me jittery and it creates all kinds of like panic in my mind of like also I'll lay in bed. I'm sorry this is a tangent but I'll lay in bed and I'll worry about like identity theft and my couch so I can't i. I avoid caffeine as best. I Cam O- minute to the Max is totally different on my system. So I don't get jittery I. It does not keep me up late at night or anything crazy like that but it definitely does give me this sense that it's helping sustain my energy level throughout the day and I and I and I do it for that
What we want to see from 2K Games’ new NFL game in 2021
"The NFL may finally be willing to open things up to some competition after more than fifteen years of exclusivity especially if by that point. Two K has demonstrated the same kind of talent for football that it applied in bringing its basketball series to the apex of Sports Gaming. Lot of words there. There is big news though. This is finally happening yeah. Nfl Yeah Yeah play with NFL BUT NFL. Player's stats normal. If you ever. I know a lot of football games when you do your SC- nfl logo and then the NFL Players Association. Yeah exactly but so. What does that actually mean? What do you think that this resulted because it jesuits like games? Yeah exactly yeah totally but cool but like I feel like that's not anything that's really going to move the needle like the people that are the miss. Nfl Touquet aren't going to be like well. This is this is what I'm looking for. Sure and I think even while doing wrong it's great reporting from cement and giving you context this moreover e as existing deals they expect to expire in twenty twenty one. Nfl Season Right. Yes it does I have. I don't see what future in two thousand twenty one early. Twenty twenty two right. We're looking at where the NFL's like alright. Yay You've done enough time to open this up and we're going to get out of this agreement like Madden makes money hand over fist right. Why would they want to rock that boat? Why would they want to do anything to that extent? It is interesting to see it all shake out of the last twenty years where we're now at a place where We've been at a place where. Ea hasn't football and to K has basketball clear in some ways forced the best entries in their respective sports. I feel like this is the type of thing that isn't going to result in anything worthwhile. Yeah eating is just going to end up with Arcade Games. They don't care about that. Which like a playground was cool. I played it for a bit but like it wasn't. Nba St John. It's just one of those things where it Kinda just feels like a a lesser than experience. And that sucks. I don't want that to be the case but in my experience it has been And people love those games. But I'm not one of them. Sure hands I feel like Arcadi. Sports Games is something I like. I don't care about what players are in it like it to me just more fun about like. Oh just make the game fun and sure having the teams and stuff is like nifty. I guess I duNno was interesting about it is. It's been fifteen years and so I think this is a story that gets us as old people going right. I remember what a big deal it was when he got the rights. I remember how good the two K. Games were and how much my friends loved him and how Bullish Two K. Was about it where they what they were selling. And I'm GonNa Kinda funny dot com slash around. Come get me. They were selling the last two K. Game they did for like what like thirty bucks to the Fifty Bucks that Madden was twenty bucks to the yeah. It was like they were making hardcore moves to make people come play their game over Matt and and that was awesome exciting and it was the challenge of you know when you get when you get into a monopoly. You get very set in your ways right. And so I I hate the matters. Just update every year you know Blah Blah Blah Blah. Like I know how hard the madden team works to make madden as good as it can be every year but they are in a nine month cycle and so it is a lot of features that they start working on get pushed to the next year Ravin beyond that one year whereas if you had competition you had two teams pushing each other. I think you could see something really cool happy. I don't see that happening out of this deal I I mean again. It's been fifteen years. The people made the two K. Football Games football games. I don't think you've been grinding. That accident. Still at two K for that long. Yeah they moved on to the project of the teams are. The things are a lot of them. Probably work on that and I bet in so to be here now having this conversation. Yeah you Katie things. But it's not like you're going to suddenly see this resurgence. I don't see what they can even if you go out and your two K. And you kill it out in these. Nfl Arcadi Games. I guess I understand. Okay cool like maybe you've proven yourself but in reality it's going to be the NFL's and to be like cool. Keep making these things like this. And I don't mean this in a derogatory way but these games are gonNA kill on switch. You know. It's like this could be to switch out like you know. They have been putting a lot of support towards the switch but the game like Wolfenstein supper. Never GonNA run as well as they do on the show. The playground games can capitalist pigs. Gummy ESPN NFL to cave. Espn NFL two K. Fives price was twenty bucks that year. Madden launched for four for fifty bucks there. You Go however I was insane man. Yeah Anikin J. MT. Has An interesting wrinkle to think about Tim. Jeremiah tricks exactly. Nfl IT'S UK is coming back but won't be assume focused game. This has me thinking both man and the ww two K Games have felt both felt same year. After you're not really innovating between games. Eighty w all the wrestling has been very open about wanting to make a game and with the relaunch. Xfl being funded by WBZ's. Vince McMahon. It won't be long assuming the XFL returns next season until an xfl game is made could and xfl and in E W game if they're good games that sell well force EA and to K to finally put finally up their game in making madden an WBZ games to prevent people from switching over to newer better products. No I mean here's the thing there's going to be an XFL game period. Yeah if there is an xfl game. It's not GonNa be good. It won't be soon for sure and yet and also won't be soon. I I mean there's a lot of jobs here if xfl makes it to a second season does it. I've paid no attention except what was happening. Yeah and you're not paying attention still going on right. Yeah Yeah So I I don't really see a game on the e W side. I'm really excited at the idea that they might do the thing. The Greg Miller dream right and just like let's just make no mercy is with us but I feel right now. It is legitimately all talk. That game doesn't exist yet and it just kind of like talking about it. And they're gonNA William do existence. I I do believe that. But that's going to be similar to the playground games and stuff where it's going to be a fun thing and the people that are in doing a really in love it and there's a chance that if it is really that good that audience can be fairly large and it could be kind of a big head and got very well review if you could. Yeah you could recapture some of the Gloria and sixty four wrestling games. I think you breakthrough. Nobody cared not nobody. But the people you breakthrough don't care that's eighty w these cool down for wrestling totally totally and I think that out of the twenty dollar download -actly exactly I feel like that. Could then you know? Open the doors and push towards. Wwe coming in being like all right. We're GONNA make mercy to yeah. That could be a fun thing. But I don't think that's GonNa Really Affect Mad at all it's own level. It's like did this question kind of implies that Madden isn't doing well in reviewing well it is you know. Madden and correct me. If I'm wrong isn't facing any of the issues that a ton of the other sports games are over the last couple years of the micro transaction stuff being as ridiculous as it seems to be fearful or even NBA team in Madden. There that I that FIFA has has so many problems with but I don't hear people here. I'm sure anything with the station platforms. A has the option to be abused period. That's any game. So yeah that's not inherently bad. It's just bad how could be in the game. But the core Gameboy of Madden Games. Great Right. Oh Yeah Yeah I don't know hasn't changed much in the last ten years but it has. That's the thing is it's glacial and it changes in the physics move and this thing that and so it's like I mean I think if you looked at ten years ago actually played it versus you played and now I think you would be like. Oh wait hold on. Maybe I guess I'd rather go back on. Madden two thousand ten because I was a good game
David Heinemeier Hansson | A Different Lens on Work
"So a lot of different places on touchdown with you in different parts of life can parts of work were hanging out in La. You're in malvern. You've been here for a long time worn in Denmark and sounds like also had an interesting relationship with technology when you really really young got a computer but this I that eventually you adrift you. It wasn't your jam at all in the early days. No it wasn't I mean I was always into computers like I'm a first computer six years old but all of my early childhood exposure to computers for about Video Games. They weren't about sort of what goes on inside a computer. I wasn't like a geek in that sense I didn't really care that much. It was all about. Hey I really like video games. I WANNA play more video games. Get MORE VIDEO Games. Got Into video game journalism to get more video games because they couldn't afford them. And Hey if you review them they send them to you for free or actually in my case when I started. They didn't even send you for free. I would just a good onto my local video game store. How would ask? Hey can I borrow some games? I Like I review game. How Old Regan's I think when I started maybe I was like fourteen fifteen year. Old Kid walking. Hey can I borrow Hobo over tickets? Promise I'll bring them back and the guy was looking at me like what? But then I found this one guy who himself had done some journalism or something or writing of some kind is a mix store that had both hip hop dj gear and then they also sold video games and this guy has written something like just a a dasan of this kid to walk in and say hey. Can I borrow your games? He lent me a couple of games. Actually got to be good friends over the years and that'll let into and finally publishing on the Internet which was let let me to the web and let me to essentially get back into computers from a perspective of using them to build stuff because ever is really just using them to play video games. Play more games such a big video game fan but eventually it ended up that using computers to make things was more interesting. It just took a while I mean and this was also at a time where Home computers were. I mean they're not what they are now like this timers like you know sixty four K. Eight hundred twenty eight K. of Ravin little floppy disks or maybe even a cassette player. So when you talk about playing games this is sort of like an entirely different universe to what people think about. It really isn't. It was funny because in those days the way video games disputed at least sort of the sort of small games. They were actually written down at the back of the magazines. I had the game. The Code Code was listed out. It was like two pages of very dense coat. And you have to type it in yourself. That's amazing and I did that. And it would take like two hours to type it in and at that stage. I didn't know English. I was just sort of Danish kid. Like what six seven eight years old didn't know English and of course I got it wrong and programming is just such a unforgiving you have one comma wrong and the thing just doesn't work and you have no idea why so. That was kind of frustrating years but that was the computer the Commodore Sixty four which was the main machine back. Then one megahertz right like that's not an etc as saturation the CPU literally one herds. It's amazing I remember. I computer in our home. I think that even a little bit. Before that was Radio Shack. They had the trs. Eighty quote trash. Eighty and you had to hook up this external cassette deck and hope you got the volume right so you record it something. It actually was. You could play it back and get something. That wasn't total gibberish. I remember that because this was so so the era of when I started playing video games they wouldn't buy games we shared. So you would copy the cassettes and there's always deportation as you copy them back and forth and at some point you'd be like well. This is the seventh copy. I don't know if it's GONNA make it. And then you could see on the screen when you're loading the game on Commodore Sixty Four. The screen would flash in very specific ways that had these bars of color. And you developed a sense of like is loading like you said getting the right things and it was just. It was just fascinating and I have those vivid images of the loading screens with the loading graphics. Which was just this random noise which reminded me of when I got into. Pbs's import systems. You'd have to modems and they'd played this very specific sound like. Could you imagine Geduhn good young and you could hear what a proper connection sounded like and thought that Tech Tilleke of computing. It's just something. I'm kind of sad we lost. There was just some analog dimension to it that was really satisfying. Yeah it's like it almost made a tactile and a certain way like century where it's also it's kind of funny that you bring that up because it's almost like you know now look at technology and all these. Apps and stuff like that and intermittent reinforcement is intentionally built into all this stuff but that was like this early hint of like is it going to or is is is completely a meltdown godly. Yeah I remember even with the cassette. So you'd have multiple games in some cassette. So you'd fast forward. I gotta get into like three minutes thirty two and sometimes wade would set up it. Be Right in between and you wouldn't know quite win to start the play but in for it it was magic or maybe it was magic maybe told Shit and you look back through. Nostalgic is like Oh that was great. Connect with a certain moment of your life But I mean what's interesting? Also that is. It seems like even the earliest days. It wasn't enough for you to just know what was happening on the surface like there was something in you know. I need to understand what's happening underneath the hood which has been this consistent. Theme will literally almost everything that you've done. I certainly would get very deep into something so video games for example. Even if it there was some parts of it that with the mechanics deal for Howard's old built but then there would also be the social aspect so for example if you'd like to play video games and you wanted a lot of idioms you kind of had to have friends and you had to have friends for me. That age were older. Who had access to different things who could get different things very sort of? You've got to work the crowd sense to it. You got to organize you gotta get into these communities. You got a dive under knees. You've got to find out. What make these people clicks us that? Hey I'm a what nine-year-old kit and I show up at some fourteen year old boys house and how do we connect? How do we connect over the fact that like otherwise? We don't really share a lot of things right and I had that for. I mean basically anti tie childhood that revolved around Video Games and computers. I was always thinking like who can teach me more and inevitably it be people. Were there other kids? Who were five? Six seven eight years older than me. I remember it's funny now living in the US and living in an environment where like you just don't see nine year olds walking the street right like that's just not a thing anymore but especially in La. Nobody walks right. Nobody wants to hold the criminalization of of Childhood and self driven child. When I was I think like eleven twelve years old. I'd go to these computer. Parties would like fifteen sixteen eighteen year old. And you're like you're just even trying to picture that image now and it's such a difficult image but it really enabled me to learn without speed limits that I was not confined as a eight year old to learn from other eight year olds because I mean really. That's a pretty slow way of learning. If you WANNA learn fast from someone who really knows a lot more than you do really have access to a lot more than what you have and I picked up on that very early that to go faster to suck in more. You had to deal with people who were multiple levels ahead of you and then just try real hard to keep up and that was just so much more fun

"Me about this. There's a number of things interesting. I think to me about the Patriots offense but air last year you remember people were pointing to the Patriots in how much they used running backs. They're run pass pass balance how heavy they win and said see running matters. The Patriots won the Super Bowl and they ran. And you know maybe they're taking the rest of the. NFL is adding so this year. They're about they did run a lot more than most. NFL teams last year this year. They're fifteenth in run pass balance But you've seen them go more towards passing effect since week six. They have run over sixty four percent of snaps out of eleven when they're well below the League average on US twelve and that reflects the personnel that they have right and I think something you saw this Sunday. And you're going to see going going forward is more UPTEMPO more. You spread like more passing out of spread. But I think you're going to see kind of like the the Patriots offense you saw a few years ago and some of that is just what they're capable of doing at this point. They missed James Devlin at fullback. He was a big part of that. twenty-one personnel run game. They had a replacement for him named Jacob Johnson. He got injured The offensive line line is clearly having problems. Run Blocking Shack Basin is not as good as in years past There's no David Andrews at center because of the medical problems that he had. He's out for the years of center so they're not getting the run blocking that they've gotten in years past so there's no question that they can't even the the running was a little bit overstated last here. Like a lot of that. Running near the end of last year was in the second half of wins like they still were a pass heavy team in the first half of games but yeah I think they need to go more. The running is just not working this year because the blocking is just not there. I don't think you can blame Sony. Michelle for it. I think it's about the blocking you know. It's funny because as you remember people again. That was the argument during the super. Bowl run oh this run team. But ultimately they want on the Super Bowl bypassing to Rob Gronkowski and I think his absence on the hostage I think his absence just loom so large urge but so much more over this team than I would have predicted. Well Boston radio moves large over Boston. Radio 'cause I can tell you that. The last last couple of days there was a lot of discussion of Gronk the GRONK announcement that was kind of Ryan boarding and would be announcing that he was coming back which of course no. He's not coming back he's just doing like a boat tour or something by Yeah no I mean all the numbers show that Brady's numbers were always lower without Gronkowski. There's no question that they missed Gronkowski on cousy he was never adequately replaced. I mean bed Watson. Is it useful. Second tight end at his age but he's not a starter they thought they kinda had something with not Lacoste. I don't UAE clearly. It's something they saw on film because he'd never had a lot of production in real life and he's been injured to really do much anyway so the tight end position position is like the total afterthought. I'm surprised that there isn't more Twenty personnel what. They Call Pony personnel with two halfbacks in the backfield old. Were passing to both James and either birkhead or Michelle. I expected to see more of that. This year And there hasn't been as much as out as I as I thought they were GONNA use. Well we know why they're high unmet lukasz.

Let's overreact to Week 8: The 49ers are the NFL's best team
"I think that what we want to talk about our vise lows the NFL season so far and highs at this point are the Sansko forty niners it's the New England patriots to undefeated teams and then we want to get into Adam gays who want to get into Freddie Kitchens in WanNa get into the Chicago bears those I probably don't need to say are the lows of the nfl let's start with the great teams the teams that are that are undefeated mic Bosa and San Francisco Forty niners so this was so we talked about this last week where essentially both of the undefeated teams have been dogged by this Weirdo they haven't played anybody and eventually as maze I talked about last week eventually you know this is just the NFL they're beating up on these bad teams because there's just too many bad NFL team that's sort of the way things are going right now there's like five good teams that are quote unquote nice schedule winds and then there's twenty-seven teams who are who everyone considers inferior one AA competition Ravin said that the forty niners host the Carolina Panthers on Sunday they win fifty one to thirteen the panthers where the fifth ranked offense in the NFL all fifteen th ranked defense Nick Bosa three sacks three tackles for loss one pass break up and one interception return for forty six yards the forty niners I I I don't feel the need to say there will jit because we already knew their religion you've written about this this was the type of win that I August isn't very analytical this shuts people up oh yeah I mean this is this is what they call a statement when I think the most points they've scored since ninety three or something like that I saw that today Yup yeah type of win where if there was college they would get like twenty more first place votes this week exactly kind of win they wouldn't jump over the Patriots but it'd be getting close yeah I mean this what stood out to you when you just looked at I mean it was as complete performance you can get it turning that stood out that maybe I mentioned already I mean yeah obviously the defense I think has been the foundation that they've been operating on this year they've -pletely remade that front seven I should say the front the Front Line Nick Bosa you know changes everything default has been good deforest buckner is just playing out in elite level still Eric Armstead has been playing really really well as you know two and then I actually saw Solomon Thomas make a really good play today too I mean they've got guys they've got it reminds me a little bit of the rams of old in one sense that they spent several years of like accumulating talent and it's finding all starting to kind of click together her and their defense is looks like a juggernaut and then on the other side of the ball run game is just so dominant You know we saw we saw what they could do today. Seven Coleman really really good they've got like woman baby yeah they've got like four backs that could that could be their starter yeah they're just really really good so they they control the clock they it's such an old school method in you know it's it's funny because in the in the stage when passing is so much more efficient they're kind of breaking that rule that passing more efficient because when you can run with that level of efficiency in that level of explosiveness I mean it just you don't Oh you don't actually really need to pass that much because they've just been doing it sufficiently my favorite maybe event of twenty nineteen so far is field yates tweeted out most pass attempts prior to first career interception history number one is Dak Prescott number three was Kyle Allen after the game yeah Richard Sherman Seen this yet Richard Sherman quote tweeted that tweet which is I'm so happy to have Richard Sherman back in our lives I talked with a couple of weeks ago but just like the thing where he may be made up that thing with Baker Mayfield I'm fine with it leveraged do whatever he wants he's back in the spotlight he's GonNa Talk unquote tweet field Yates tweets about say element Mayo hundred percent on the rich German experience back to hit a piano yeah I know this is a pro Richard Sherman podcast now I think it's really interesting what happens now in the NFC obviously the Green Bay packers won tonight there are no drew breeze comes back with the saints and they look like they didn't miss a beat obviously you know teddy bridgewater is a very good quarterback while he was aperture breezes he's wearing your mind is the pecking order in the NFC and are the niners significantly above those other two teams man that's such a good question I really like The saints still I think the fact that they were able to do what they did go five zero at bridgewater and just Kinda keep going you know keep them momentum going forward I think they are still one of the favorites I would say you know it San Francisco New Orleans one and the packers just slightly below that but with the way that Aaron Rodgers has been playing last couple of weeks there certainly scary I think their defense has taken a little bit of a step back so there may be not quite as balanced as we thought they were but yeah I mean I think those are clear top three teams there's no question about that and then you could you know make arguments for the vikings or whoever but yeah I think those are like the like the cream of the crop for share in then there's a bunch of other teams speaking of the cream of the Crop New England patriots okay so the stats from the NFL the browns I can barely get throughout the browns had turnovers on three consecutive offensive plays against the Patriots that is the first time any team has done so since week one twenty twelve only the seventh time it's been done since two thousand this is not good if you're the browns we're GonNa get to the browns and are very robust stocks downs section a little bit but this patriots team unfortunately this is not kind of the schedule will win that we thought it was going to be you know the niners get there's the browns are not as good as the panthers the browns have been kind of a disaster but this was just another performance Devin mccourty looks like maybe defensive player of the year candidate the defense he just unbelievable in Baker Mayfield after the game said that the Patriots didn't do anything confuse them they were just playing really well yeah and you you kinda wonder like isn't that the worst case scenario for a team is the they're not doing anything new there just being the crap out of you I mean it was amazing when you think about this patriots defense what comes to mind yeah I think a couple of things going to mind number one discipline that's kind of a hallmark of the belichick teams is just being really disciplined like you know obviously Cliche do your job or whatever that's the first thing versatility you know they're able to play it's

Subscriptions what it means for your streaming options coming up. In a feature, which is scheduled to launch in late January, Roku will allow users to buy pay TV subscriptions through the Roku channel allowing Roku to sell subscriptions within its own channel. Which in hopes leads to more favourable economics for Roku, Roku hope. So at least let's get more. Joining us in the podcast duty. Oh with the latest is Wall Street Journal reporter Benjamin Mullen, welcome back. Hey, things Ravin. I get a feeling of what's on a new streaming menu. For the masses. This will offer what kind of streaming programming and channels you can access stars epochs Showtime. And then everything else you could Ardy access on Roku, which is something like five thousand channels or something like that. So this is obviously taking a page from the other players. How does Roku hold up against the big streaming rivals figures apple and Amazon, but in terms of its competition in terms of market share Roku seems to be holding its own against. A giants. It seems like a formidable competitor in this space. Yeah. Roku interesting story. Founded by a former Netflix executive, it's the sixth the company he founded, which is why it's called Roku 'cause six Japanese. That's yeah. He actually the Anthony would the guy founded it had the idea to do OTT streaming devices before they were really popular. And so in the meantime, in the last few years, Roku got gotten a pretty substantial market share. I think something between forty and fifty percent of these devices in the marketplace, and they've carved out a real niche for themselves, but there's huge competition Amazon, which is in so many industries publishing ecommerce retail is also in this industry, and so with their prime video model they've really taken away a lot of the market share fire, TV's and fire sticks and stuff, apple TV. And other tech giants. It's also in this space. So they've grown quite a bit. But they also have huge competition. And this is an attempt to open up a new source of money new revenue stream devices, obviously, it's bread. How does Roku make money said, it's carved a niche, but how does it succeed at making money? Yes. So they sell a lot of advertising they are primarily advertising supported so all the content that viewers watch on Roku. There's a lot of folks that wanna reach those viewers, and so they sell advertising, they also get some kind of shared economics from the sale of subscriptions to these channels like stars and Showtime and epochs good incentive for the premium channels right because they're trying to make money to one hundred percent. And the debate is if you're one of these premium channels, will you let Roku sell your subscriptions directly or do you want to do it yourself net? Flicks probably will not participate. They'll probably want to do it themselves because they get the direct relationship, and they get the data. But if you're a smaller premium cable channel like a Showtime or an ethics, and you don't have a huge consumer facing platform like some of those companies do like Netflix and Amazon then yeah, maybe it's worth forgoing some of the subscription revenue or a little bonus on each subscriber. To get that added to use Roku, essentially as a marketing channel. And again, you know, it's it's just another way to stream video there's no shortage. And it seems like these days the power in that seems to be back with the consumer. They wanna keep us happy because it seems like there are so many options. And so this trend of streaming subscription channels seems like where we've landed at the moment does that make sense one hundred percent. And I think the question is how many channels arena have subscriptions to we're all going. We're all gonna have Netflix. We're all gonna have Amazon probably, but then Roku. I mean, do we want subscription to curiosity stream, which is a smaller factual, entertainment one. I think the question is what our customers tolerances for these various services, then thanks as always for more on the story. Head to wsJcom that does it for the tech news briefing reporting from the newsroom in New York. I'm Tanya boosters. Thanks for listening.
