Larry but i did have a question about announcing or doing shout casting for rocket league. Do you treat it like you would a normal broadcast like whether or not i don't know if you've ever broadcast soccer before anything like that because obviously there's similarities there you able to to make your own little twist on i don't broadcast rapidly stage host. So it's easy so i just interviewed the players before and after the match maybe talked to the parents. Welcome the crowd answers like you know like a typical normal job that i would have a master of ceremony or stage hosts okay. It's pretty simple. Exactly an mc master of ceremonies. But i tell you what i do when i'm asking questions i treat them just like i would have. I was talking to him on the green. Or i'm talking to tom. Brady at sue at the super bowl. They get the same questions. The same sort of focusing attention and energy that i wouldn't nfl athlete or the freaking lebron james of the nba vence. And i liked.

"League baseball last week, pulling the All Star Game out of Atlanta this summer. That was in response to the new Georgia voting law. They have been business is speaking out against it as well. Delta Coca Cola among them couple couple of Georgia heavyweights This week in Georgia, there's the Masters. Masters Chairman Fred Ridley is part of his annual pre tournament news conference, noting He's not necessarily in favor of the boycotts that have been talked about, I believe, and I confident that every member of this club believes that voting is an essential Fundamental right in our society. As I stated that any anything that disadvantages anyone to vote is wrong and should be addressed. I'm not going to speak to the specifics of the law, but I do know that I think there's a resolution and I think that resolution is gonna be based on people working together and talking. And having constructive dialogue because that's the way our democratic society works. And while I know you would like to for us to make a proclamation on this, I just don't think that is going to be helpful. To ultimately reboot reaching a resolution. So we would like to encourage people to talk to communicate to let the democratic process work and hopefully these fundamentals and I've stated are so important to us, and I think everyone in this room could be achieved. Ridley saying calls for

He was a former member of the LAPD, and he thinks he could be the next mayor for L. A city. He's probably the best member of the City Council. He's Pretty regularly right on target, which is something to be said for that crowd because so few of them ever, ever come to the right position on they're just downright suicidal on any number of subjects, But we could do a whole lot worse than Joe Boost guy. You know, he's definitely one of the most common sense people on the L. A City Council, not just on police issues, but He seems to understand what the really needs to be done on things like homelessness and would definitely be in the shot of in the arm for the city of L. A. As to his chances. I don't know. Apparently, there are other members of the City Council who are also planning on announcing, and I could think of one that would scare the living daylights out of you and may well one doesn't know the pledge of allegiance. He's gonna be running. That's Kevin Daily own. Do we still have that? I gotta find it. Yeah, that piece of work. And then we've got Mark Ridley Thomas, who's been around for 900 years in every elected office that you could win in the county of Los Angeles. He's back on the City Council after being on the Board of Supervisors. For three terms and the only reason by the way that he's back on the City Council because he already turned out of there. He had to terms on the City Council, and then he moved on the other offices. But then they extended the term limits from 2 to 3 terms so he could come back for one final term, where he was a lame duck.

Poly Styrene Documentary
"Today. Polystyrene i m cliche is directed by both her daughter. Celeste bell and documentary maker pulsing charting the rise of marian elliott as she was born. She saw yellow pages ad became polystyrene and formed punk band x ray specs as we know in this foam. Celeste goes through her mother's archive and visits. The places of hutch halted. So let's listen to the trader to get a feel for it. Some people think little go should have. But i think my mother was punk rock icon. People have asked me if she was a good mom. It's hard to know what to say your rebel. Today's society paulie had our own ideas. Student full fully trends. She was a woman of color in. Dc full of white middle class. men was singing. polly was singing about. I fell in love with her. I fell in. The news actually started singing. Because right we will dive right in nora snaps point. He was a big personality but as we see her life was extremely complicated on. This is as much. Her daughter's journey as police starring life story. Was that a good way in. I think definitely I think by this point. We also board like punk defecation. This point know the way. The bbc fool punk document generation. That watches him in the in the same way. That like my dad and grandad generation. What war documentaries old thing again and again and I think it's focus the that it's kind of deified in such a like i wasn't like incredible and radical umbro which it was in some ways but also rian just reinforced the status quo in other ways. Like the thing. I think is really great why i feel like the rohbock of this narrative restarted with like the vowel between book which From a couple of years ago when she you know really gets to the kind of watson order of it in a way that is much more punk than saying like. Oh we great you know like sex pistols type branding and i thought that this documentary was like a really peaceful continuation overseas. Not done by polystyrene by her daughter. And i think it's testament polystyrene like complexity and also to her sensitivity. But then i'll say for her callousness towards adulterer as well. I think it makes were much more well rounded portray of somebody and also no. It doesn't just a pain releasing on her. You know she has her own issues but it looks at how they're exacerbated by the society around like a mixed race woman in london at that time in the punk scene. There's a bit wet don. Let says that she goes and shaves her head while she's a party jordan lydon's house and when winter comes back down they just love her releasing. That seem horrendous. In retrospect i'm sure we're just kind of par for the course in in the seventy s and the other thing i was gonna say i think is important is she wasn't postponed. She was punk like she's really part of the the formative dna not very easily gets forgotten. Like when i was a teenager Bought three for twelve pounds. Buzzcocks clash kind of burundi's wound go from and see a whatever it was but it took a lot longer. It's come across x ray specs and to hear them kind of debt day fight in the way that they deserve She had a rough up. Brixton upbringing. shoes booted at school. Punk rock was a place for outsiders is the cliche but actually you see that. It's inevitable that she is going to get drawn to something that's so creative but also that she can break whatever more that she feels that she has been put into yet absolutely I think one thing that's really striking by the way that she Shared her images. While is the like. Obviously i don't want a undress will. The sex pistols did two like bridge society but fundamentally that kind of just like a boy band put together by iron. Witten really edgy branding. And that whole thing is is about dog individualism. When really it was really nothing the saw. And i think that you know. Even the police die polystyrene style for rewards more individual. She recognized herself as a cliche. And she played with the idea of like branding and identity in a way that i find much more interesting than just like sticking a safety pin on it And i think we have to use it. Today were authenticity. It comes from a very real place whether the sex pistols Taped on summertimes travis. The problems with poly seem to stem from x ray specs residency. Cbgb's in new york when they went over us punks hauled coal. There were a lot more into drugs. And i think that london it seems to say. Was this the breaking point for the band. Is this the kind of crux in the film. I think so. I mean i mean. That's the argument fuel. Makes the About what happened to the u k Members of the dolls came over an introduced heroin to the to the uk seen quite quite a heavy way otten Concur with everything that lord said about film. I think The framing the fact that it has selected celeste stories. Her as she's dealing with navas legacy in some respects her mother had had semi other people's expectations about what she should be being Star as in and being mixed race being hauled somali in britain and she's just so in the clips that they use the archive clips which from most of them from a a great arena documentary from nineteen seventy-nine he was she's just so alive him sparking intelligence on which me a very funny and in most What she's doing. I think you know how easy it is to get coal topping to the move Nexus these achieved up by the film. I descend Points about the breakdown. the failure in a way to work out. How will she is. She's diagnosed with schizophrenia. Kind of putting for bit. has serious by disorder Move into harry christmas On also in places you alluded to neglect which she treats celeste points during the spirit journey and was pursuing a common all and happened. How different thoughts regarding way with the male and female office Think about lockdown about. How much care women having to take on board and also agree with. I think that when another book that i would put in the frame is what is alvin. Is is kathy. Adams was drafted memoir of juden in other key. Figure the kind prison to look look upon pumpkin kind of liberating. It wasn't how you think about kind of male violence. Where is actually to the nearly point it was it was quite at transgressive sexually A lot of the gay pubs and clubs were up with the next to solve it. I'm so i can imagine that. The film doesn't does kind of raise interesting questions. As well as celeste father is interviewed in it on one of us and absent biggest because he died. regional manager. And pau falcons stewart. Now again. Severi seventeen seventy six. He was quite a bit older than when they get and how much care and they seem to hide it to a certain extent as well a friends didn't really know whether they were going out with each other or not. We just didn't look particularly cool Strangely enough this film from that era with hangs connor in it could breaking gloss than nyein and strangely seems to be almost so the police story in way which becomes this incredible figure And has sta machiavellian manage aaron and has this breakdown and so on so until daniels place. This full manager boyfriend Is i think it's really five documentary. Actually i think you mentioned he was a guest. Shot means the fact that one of zoe's earlier books whose how's your dad's some which is a an account to of stars children's. She's absolutely perfect for collaborator. On this end coming book as other as good as andrew. Did you like this a did. I really liked it because as as long as it's very fresh indifference it's a dream like quality. This is very much not your friday night documentary. Which begins with the stock footage of the miners. Strike rubbish piling in the winter of discontent. Yeah i've always about acronyms because hatches and didn't stop not your kind of off the pex tickets sold. It's it is a personal journey. It's quite slow and quite like i say quite dreamlike and which i found very refreshing change from the usual stakeouts poke documentary. I remember when i was a kid. I thought i thought police really disturbing because i lived in a very white suburban middle of nowhere type place and you just seems so odd and the fact that she but were shut brace on top of the pops and i now say that that is really good thing that it should be disturbed a little. You not white kids in places where i lived in in middle. middle class. spices. To encounter is person who didn't look like a boss didn't like pasta but was absolutely transfixed thing

Kevin Macdonald, Ridley Scott Join Forces For Another 'Life In A Day'
"The world to participate in making a documentary 10 years ago, along with the producer Ridley Scott. He blended scenes that people sent in from their lives on a single day in July, 2010. Now, 10 years later, they're doing it again. Here's NPR's Avery Keathley. It begins with a tempest, lightning flashes and thunder rumbles as we see Mother's going into labor and giving birth starts in the middle of the night. The sequence of babies being born because often that subsequent babies aboard Kevin MacDonald directed the crowd sourced documentary life in a day 2020. It's a sequel to 20 tens life in a day. MacDonald asked people around the world to film their lives for one day and submit it to make a sort of time Capsule of life on July 25th 2020. Received 324,000 videos from 192 countries. Now most notable Equilar scenes and montages follow the days are from early morning through night. Waking, cooking, working, mundane human things. The film follows the guy chasing trains a woman trying to conceive a man with a little white dog choosing these great moments. He's fascinating characters. How do I weave them together to form something that flows and where you sort of feel like you've traveled through? Not just a day, but of all of human experience. The film tracks familiar narrative themes, birth and death, celebration and sorrow, love and loss. But one theme was inescapable in 2020, when we would talk about it in March, we naively thought that maybe lockdowns might be over by July. Producer Jack are but not also produced the original life in a day. I'd always been really keen to know what had become of the people who were in the original film has the pandemic kicked off began to feel like there was an even better reason to revisit it. Suzanne Lucas submitted footage to the original life in a day. She filmed her teenage son, Alexander, not quite wanting to get out of bed. In 2020 Suzanne rolls the camera while watching her clip from 2010. That was my son 10 years ago on the original life in a day I'm going to show you my son now and then I turn the camera. To my son's earn and where I have his everything set up and said, This is my son. Now he's here with me forever home. Was gonna be harder than I thought. Suzanne son, Alexander Lucas died in February 2020 due to complications from covert 19. The film is dedicated to him when you lose your child, and he was my only child, your mind is very cruel to you sometimes, but I had this fear that if anything happened to me, then he would really be gone forever because it's the memories that I have that keep him here now. And by having this film this beautiful film of the year 2020 dedicated to Alexander. At least now I know He'll be remembered even when I'm not here anymore. It gave me a sense of peace that I never thought I would have. Director Kevin MacDonald reflects on the days emotional range. The roller coaster of this film is the kind of rollercoaster of life we know It's gonna have difficult moments. We know it's gonna have dark bits, but Also it can have and for most people does have moments of incredible happiness. Enjoy life in a day. 2020 reminds us that no matter the year each day holds promise. Every cutely

I would really recommend during covid times because it's a sequence of narratives about the triumph of human ingenuity in small ways and in great ways and It's a reminder. I would say it's a. It's a reminder for gratitude as all these people who came before us worked diligently and with no shortage of self sacrifice frequently to produce all these improvements that we now take for granted. And it's it it it improve your view of humanity to read the book and since here human being. It's quite good for you. Psychologically to improve your view of humanity. So thank you all for listening.

"Oh my god we can have our cake and eat it too to faster. We make people rich the better off. The planet is going to be completely. This is so clear to me.

Some does accuse me of being doctor pangloss as you remember in county in volta as noble is someone who says he's a he's a caricature of of leibnitz and he says that All is for the best in the best of all possible worlds and yes. Lisbon is being destroyed by earthquake. But that must be because they were people. Because god wouldn't do a bad thing and it's a very silly argument and it's being lampooned by voltaire but actually the people who say that now not you me was saying good as this world is compared with what it was. It's a veil of tears compared with what it could be if we press on. We're not saying we've got to the best possible world we're saying let's keep going but the people who are saying that who are saying. We mustn't do anymore development. We must make sure that people still live in mud huts. You outline data indicating that one of the responses by the that catastrophes. Let's say of. The one thousand nine hundred sixties was to write off places like india and and proclaim that even aid was futile. Because all you were doing was encouraging increasing starvation in the future when i was writing the rational optimist in trendy ten the it was quite fashionable. Still to write off africa to say yes. Asia has seen extraordinary improvements in living standards but it is very unrealistic to assume that that could have happened in africa. People would say that kind of thing quite often in my book. I said look even in africa. We are seeing incredible improvements. Well the fastest criticized view in the new times for using the phrase even in africa. That showed i was racist department. You know you call it saying the opposite but now ten years old africa's had an incredible decade actually much better than the west which has had a grim decade of low productivity in the ovarian of the great recession and so on but you know countries like ethiopia of double daring Capita in in real terms in a decade You've seen malaria mortality collapse. You've seen hiv mortality falling fast. You've seen warfare disappearing from much of the continent. You've seen an emerging middle-class. You've seen folles hunger. Malnutrition actually africa is just doing. Roughly what asia did a generation ago. An eight will soon be where asia is now which is a middle class middle income continent. That's an incredible thing and it it. Africa has has unparalleled potential. I read an analysis. Probably fifteen years ago i believe it was by the former. Ceo of l. Coa the aluminum company. It was working for a republican government as a as a as a cabinet member at that point. I can't remember his name but he visited. Uganda was very curious about its potential with regards to agriculture and calculated. First of all. Uganda apparently sits on the water table. That's only about two hundred feet down and it's very fertile. He calculated and maybe this wasn't his calculation but he reported that uganda alone could seed all of africa. Yup and so. There's there's no reason to assume that. Despite the fact for example. I think its nigeria is on course to be the world's most populous country by the year. Twenty one hundred. I think the demographic projections are that it will surpass china by that point. Is that that. I believe that's true. And that's that's quite an interesting isn't it. But now i mean just just cast your mind for the a twenty one hundred. I think we will be producing food. An awful lot of it from factories by that number factories. I mean vertical femmes you know in dole. Led lit multi-storey operations. That why let why led khalid cheap. The they used so little electricity and producer. Little heat that you can actually start to make indoor farming make sense because like was was the was the big problem for finding you have to be outdoors for the light because the plants grad acceptance sunlight but the led revolution has made a big difference. That y- i can imagine us. Having basically indo femmes the size of uganda that feed the world and the rest of the planet yes will have hobby farming. And we'll we'll have grass-fed beef in here and there and so on but an awful lot of the rest of it will be one giant national park in which we will allow nature to thrive now people to to operate as tourists increasingly ecologically pristine pay for themselves with tourism and so that brings them into the economy which is a normal certain way of preserving them to and i suspect. We'll back some extinct species by that as well. So you talk about you talk as well about. I'm going to list a few things here. So we talked about feeding nine billion in that. That's become a possibility you talk about the triumph of cities and the escaped from office. So maybe we could talk about up briefly and the end of slavery as well which. That's a lovely one because that's unheralded. I would say get partly. Because i think people don't really understand how universal slavery or near slavery was across civilizations for for the entirety of human of of human human history so triumph of cities. Well people moving into cities Cities innovation happens on the hill that disproportionately innovative that the bigger. They are the more efficient. They are in some sense. They they have gas stations view of miles of road purpose in the biggest cities if what they become more concentrated More than half the world now lives in cities that leaves the rest of the landscape. Trampled cities only occupied by three percent of the world's land surface. I believe so i actually. It's a good thing because an yes you know. Some of us like to live in rural areas rather than in cities But those of us who want to do that cities aware people come together and they mix and they have ideas and they and they produce baby ideas. You know so. It was the city states of ancient greece or the city states of of rene sensitivity. That really drove the world economy in the day. Likewise in britain in victorian times california today california two great big city states los angeles san francisco effectively and.

"Depression high levels of anxiety or or resentment even hatred of humanity for that matter if we're the destructive species that were always made out to be and so it's still seems to me that work that concentrates on demonstrate from a historical perspective. How much better. Things are getting is very much worth putting forward. So there's a deeper element of optimism in your work as well which is in a sense kind of non naive russo. Ian ism being russo of course famously believed that people were good and that human institutions made them as malevolent and evil as they might become so. We're naturally good at corrupted by culture. And i think that's half the story because we're also naturally bad and ennobled by culture but despite that you make a really good case in the origins virtue that virtue itself did morality itself has a biological basis and grounded in our evolutionary history. And if you would ask you to expound on that a little bit you talk about the discovery of the future and the necessity of reciprocity as driving agents in that evolution. That's a wonderful idea. And it's it's a profound idea because it does hint at a non arbitrary base for for moral thanking and. that's. I think that that's been something. I've been pursuing my entire. Life would say well what i set out to do in that book. An it is admittedly twenty six years ago. Something finished writing it so a i may have changed my mind. I want two things. But what i set out to do was to persuade the reader that are good. Instincts are as animal as a bad instincts. A good behavior is as is natural is as Instinctive if you like as bad behavior we tend to get. I think from christianity mainly a view that The the deep sort of animal side of us which is bad but we can teach each other to be good. And i don't think that's right. I think there's just as much of an animal instinct to be good in as well as bad because if you look you know. We are a social species. Lots of species are very social. And what they tend to do. Is they express various forms of kindness and generosity and self-sacrifice towards other members of this species. The most obvious example is that we're nice to our children as our most creatures and the reason is to our children is obviously because we share that jeans People who were nice to that children tend to leave more children behind them. People who went nice to that children and so the genes for being nice to children thrive to the expensive jeans. Who the did the opposite. But obviously it goes further than that. There are social species that collaborate with other ones and they do so often with a form of the collaborate with strangers as it were and they do so often with a form of reciprocity. You know you scratch my back announced scratchy. It'll be nice to you today. You'll be nice to me tomorrow when a fish visit visits a cleaning station on the reef and allows small fish to clean the parasites it. It's resisting the temptation to eat the cleaner fish. And so there's a mutual gain a gain from trade. The that's remarkable example that these cleaning stations are set up. On coral reefs where small fish congregate often brightly colored and large fish lineup. Like cars at a gas station to have their scales and even their teeth Denuded of of of of parasites and and dying. Tissue and and some of cleaning stations are apparently tens of thousands of years old. So yes that's of course. That's a cross species. Collaboration this is. This is two different species collaborating. But i didn't know whether it's in that book later i in the end. Come down onto the view that that kind of reciprocity. You scratch my back. Scratchy ios is surprisingly rare. Actually that actually. You can't find that examples as a wonderful example of an bats doing it by bats. That didn't get a blood meal. Beg for one from that neighbor. That neighbor then you then returned the favor to the neighbor. Next time that he doesn't get him a blood meal and that while you're better off actually. It turned out that they were closely related. These were this to some degree of family thing as well so actually and in human beings it. It isn't very common for for me to say look you did yesterday so i'm going to do you the same favor today. What are the circumstances under which is going to happen. I mean i'm going to have too much food today and you're going to have too much. Tomorrow's kind of doesn't happen very often but we human beings have developed another form of exchange which is far more powerful. which is. I've got more food than i need. You've got more water than you need. I'm thirsty or hungry will come to a deal. Will we'll swap so we'll swap different things at the same time rather than the same things at different times and for me. That's the real insight into how human sociality and cooperation volt now. I know here. Repeating what adam smith said in the wealth of nations about the the the butcher in the banca a not giving you bret baier because they want to be kind to the doing it to make a living but they end up being kind to you in you end up being kind to them by giving them money which is what they will. I also thought that in some sense you made a deeper case the not to talking. About the human capacity to understand envision the future reciprocity requires the ability to view transactions across time and so as soon as a creature becomes aware of the future like we have..
"ridley" Discussed on The Jordan B. Peterson Podcast
"I have the good fortune today of speaking with author. matt ridley. Who's written. A number of books are will list them in the description of the video. The ones. I reviewed this week in preparation for this interview. Include this one published in nineteen ninety-six the origins of virtue which is lovely investigation into the biological origins of morality. Essentially a very thought provoking book and a very straightforward read for such a complex subject the rational optimist which was published. I believe in two thousand ten. And which i think probably serves as a pretty good description of mad ridley himself. That was my impression after after going through his work and then more recent work how innovation works and why it requires freedom to flourish sewri and why it flourishes in freedom. So it's. I wanted to talk to matt primarily because i've been struck in my career as a university professor and also on my tours talking to thousands of people many of whom are desperate especially young people because they are fed and never ending diet of gloom and doom it seems to be armageddon like cultural predisposition to assume without to to only look at evidence that suggests that the future is going to be much worse than the past despite the fact that the president is much better than the past. And that's been the case for many decades. I would say and matt's books they're lovely read during the covid crisis i would say because of course it's a very rough time for everyone i would say with the lockdowns and the uncertainty that reigns as a consequence of that and he very carefully documents. The improvements that have been made in all around the world over the last especially for the last four hundred years is incredible. Explosion of technological intelligence. That's produced on a an unparalleled increase in human living standards by virtually any measure across virtually all dimensions. And so well. that's my rationale for talking to matt. He's very straightforward author and despite the complexity of the ideas and so. I'm really happy to be speaking with him today. Joe thank you very much. It's a real honor to be speaking with you. And i'm someone who enormously at mazar courage and intellectual What's the word gravitas. That that you bring to discussions at. I think it's it's just fantastic to be able to meet you albeit online and just on that question of optimism. It's a bit of a evangelical 'cause for me this. Because i was steeped in pessimism as a young man as a boy at school at university. I believe the population explosion was unstoppable. Famine was inevitable that the oil was gonna run out that the rainforest. We're gonna disappear. That cancer was gonna show my lifespan. Pesticides we're gonna make life. You know that kind of stuff and it came as quite a shock. When i found that the world is getting better not worse during my life. Dramatically so and so. I want to tell. Today's young people that there is another possibility to the extinction. Rebellion kind of stuff that that being fed by everybody. Not just education system. But the media and the parents the grownups. I think it's quite important to have some ultimatum. Why is it that with nothing but improvement behind us switched to expect nothing but deterioration before us. That's a great quote and it's not me it. Thomas babington macaulay lord macaulay writing in eighteen. Thirty seven we'll ready. Then he was fed up with doomsters saying Has been getting better in the past. But it's going to get worse in the future and that's what every generation says and i think so further been rolling and i think there's a good chance that wrong up. Well it might be a consequence of our of the human tendency to overweight negative information right. We're wired to be more sensitive to threat and to pain than we are to hope and and pleasure And i suppose that's because you can be one hundred percent deb but you can only be so happy and so it's better. It's better in some sense. To err on the side of caution and maybe when that's played out on the field of future prognostications everything that indicates decline strikes harder than everything that indicates that things are going to get better. I mean it's a real mystery right because the news tilts itself very hard towards the catastrophic. And i can't think of any explanation for that given that news purveyors seek attention. I can't come up with a more intelligent explanation than our proclivity for negative emotion. But we do have to overcome that to some degree. it's not in accordance with the fact. There's a there's an interesting angle that i think might be a clue to what's going on Several people have observed that we are less pessimistic about our own lives than we are about lodger unit so well not very pessimistic about Village were not very pessimistic about town but were very pessimistic about our country and we're extremely pessimistic about the planet the bigger the unit. You look at the mo- pessimistic people off. And of course people on the whole thing therein. Life's gonna work out. It's going to be fine. They're gonna stay married. they're going to a lot of money. You know the there. Okay when they talk about themselves. And i think what that's telling you. Is that your information about your own. Life comes from your own experience. Your information about the planet comes from the media and that implies to me that it's not just our in bill by assisted. The doing this that there is a there is a top down effect from what the culture chooses to tell us. You have any sense of the motivation for that i mean. I don't think it's unreasonable. To assume that much of what drives the production of the news is the search for attention. The search for is and you'd expect the news to evolve towards the maximum attention grabbing form right and so part apart from the ability to grab attention. Can you think of any reason why pessimism is this is the is the sales item of the day from of the news companies. And this is where my argument breaks down a bit because it becomes circular. Because i say yeah you're right. The reason they're telling us bad news is because i knew And they know we're interested in bad news on the hell. We look at good news stories to anything like the same degree. So we're avid consumers of pessimism and not They they play to that But does another phenomenon to which is good news. Tends to be gradual and bad news tends to be sutton that's not always true of course but it's surprising often finished true. One hundred sixty eight thousand people were lifted out of extreme poverty yesterday and the day before and the day before and the day before. It's a it's a it's never newsworthy. Whereas three thousand people were killed when an airline flew into skyscraper that is news worthy because it so sudden so unexpected so so new. It's funny when i. When i when i ran across statistics like the one that you just quoted which i think is worth repeating over and over one hundred. Seventy thousand people lifted out of poverty. Today could be three inch every day. Because it's an unparalleled event in human history although it's occurring every day right now but maybe it's also because you have to prepare for the worst but you don't really have to prepare for the best. If the best is happening then you can just keep on doing what you're doing. But if the but if there is a flaw somewhere or an error then maybe you have to make some changes in your behavior and that might be another reason why we're were prone to seek out negative information. Does that explain why we're loss averse to the extent we are all i think so. I think it's the same phenomenon so anyways the point is one of the points is that despite the potential adaptive utility of being more sensitive to negative information it can really get out of hand right because it can precipitate say nihilistic attitude with regards to the future or depression high levels of anxiety or or resentment even hatred of humanity for that matter if we're the destructive species that were always made out.

Interview With Dr. Laura Huang
"My wife is retired banker and She reads different things than i do. I'm going to pastor seminary professor and we tend to have this morning routine where we get our coffee and we go to respective wings of the house and we just start going through the news. One day in january. My wife comes to me which he never does and she shoves this article in front of me from the harvard business school. That's hard work isn't enough how to find your edge. And she says you need to get lower wong edged turning adversity into need to get on your podcast and this is coming from a spouse who never to my podcast. And so i go. This is unusual. And i read the article and let me tell you i was fascinated. My guest today is dr laura wong. She is an associate professor at the harvard. Business school before that she was assistant professor at University of pennsylvania's wharton business school. I am so delighted that we're actually having this conversation. I scored major points with my wife. Will i have your wife to think. Then here i was thinking that you wanted me on your podcast but thank you tour. Well i didn't know about you. let your book. But i teach leadership i'm entrepreneurial we're recording this in september while this ongoing pandemic and shutdown is going on and my wife and i one of the conversations we do have is. We're trying to kind of understand how different groups and individuals can thrive going forward. And i think that's what really caught her attention in this. That's one of the lessons. We've been married almost forty years. And i learned that listen very early. So who did you write this book for and why did you. Yeah i actually. I actually didn't intend to write this book. I mean it wasn't one of the things i mean in the back of my mind i was like. Oh maybe someday. I'll write a book but it wasn't actually something that i consciously thought about intil. Because i had been doing research for a really long time unsettling studying like disadvantage inequality and people who are underestimated. And i had been presenting a lot of this research. And i'm kept coming up to people coming up to me and saying you know like this is sort of. What can we do about this right because a lot of my research is is a little bit depressed right. He's like talk about disparity disadvantages. And how people have an how there's all this inequality bias in the workplace and entrepreneurship and just sort of been lies and so people would say like. Hey will this is depressing. What do we do about this and you know. How do we sort of level the playing deals and the thing is all the solutions that i that that that were out there that that i knew about from from research were all these sort of structural solution the system level solutions things. What i what. I mean by that is like you know. Let's have more nerdy critic. Hiring practice or west diversified the top management teams or have more diversity in terms of who gets to be mentors and and so it was like all these solutions where we had this sort of wait around for things to change right for the for the for the structures insistence more meritocratic so it was found that it like leaving people frustrated still because there were these outside in solutions of there were a lot of things that individuals could do as they were waiting around for for things to get better as they were waiting around for things to get more meritocratic and so the last couple of years of my research has been has has all been around like what can individuals do to sort of slip things for themselves to to empower themselves so that they can turn the perceptions stereotypes and the bias that have about them how they could flip them in their favor and create their own edge. And so that's really ridley. The thought behind this book came from and then as writing it was really very much more. I mean i kept thinking about you know people who do people who have sort of gotten to shutdown over and over and over again and people who just keep putting in the hard work by me because we've been taught from a young age like we're work hard work hard moving working hard but yet for whatever reason they're frustrated because they're hard work isn't leading them to the success in outcome that they were promised that they thought that they would achieve. And so how do we actually make our hardware requirements for us. Recognizing that accepts outcomes aren't really about hard work level there about the perceptions in signals in stereotypes of others.

From the past and coming back someone coming to the present from the past and being amazed by devices and. Technology that would be available to that person would walk into parliament and feel totally at home because it has not changed dining. So. That's an incredible thing that you know it. It's actually. It's a paradox there. Don't necessarily want government to change. You want it to adjust to deal with the new reality. But you could argue that some of the principles government that. We've had in the past are timeless. and. Allow. The rest of the world to move into the future and up to and vice versa we picked the wrong principles we stay mired in the president of the past head to the past. Absolutely. I think that's exactly right because. There's a reason you make. Constitutional Change Easy. In any country and Innovative. ways of making laws would not necessarily be much help you WANNA.

That seems to have gotten dropped helped smothering. That was just a wind us up. I think reprinted. So but we've got. The the notion here is that instead of rejoining the world and pursuing the Ridley path of greater freedom the current government heroic in some ways who but Boris Johnson would have been crazy enough to stick with brexit for year after year when all the polls seem to be against it when the whole ruling class. And I think it's fair to use that phrase of the lead in London. These days the whole ruling ROIC effort on his part and the moment brexit happens he wakes up the next morning and says from right done from now on. We're going to do everything wrong. Well it's a slight exaggeration. There's a lot of libertarian rhetoric. Coming from some of his ministers to I mean let's trust. The International. Trade Minister is a standard bearer for the liberal open view of are. We should be doing this but it is true that somewhere along the line Boris has allowed sort of nationalist invest public. Money in a country That's the way to grow line to And it will be a difficult argument to win for example his chief policy advisor. Who's a friend of mine?

Doppler was set up in reaction to the sputnik sky but it's great a branch of of the of the Pentagon of the United States military which invests in technology and is credited again and again and again with the creation of the Internet. Although well you'll tell us the truth and it it's really When people leave Darpa and go-to Xerox and also when the Internet escapes from DOPP catches that it really takes off so it's a misreading of history to think that the government is behind the digital industry to the extent that people like to claim. Yes it's involved. But then given the government is spending forty percent of the country's money then it better spent some of it on digital innovation. Right Matt last last question for you. How innovation works quote quote innovation? Is the child of freedom because it is a free? Creative attempt to satisfy freely expressed human desires innovative societies our free societies close quote and. You've already explained how although it doesn't seem that way to us even in China where freedom applies is where creation innovation takes place. Alright how innovation works is appearing at a moment when your government and mine are engaging in the most comprehensive suppression of ordinary freedoms since the Second World War and pretty arguably ever again as I mentioned early on even during the first and Second World Wars even during the Second World War during the blitz and London when children were sent to Canada or up north. To where where you are to get them out of London. They were still sent to school. The schools remained open and we have in China under Zhang Ping a movement toward authoritarianism. And I don't know enough to argue with you on this point but it does seem at least a kind of counter to your earlier argument. This social credit business that people are ordinary citizens are being tracked on their phones and by cameras on every street corner. And if you if you jay walk the government knows about it and makes it more difficult for you to get a good hotel reservation or to borrow from a bad alright so Matt Ridley Matt Ridley says freedom. Freedom is is a good in and of itself but it's also essential for us in the West to preserve our way of life. We must remain free because we must innovate and it feels as though Matt Ridley as brilliantly championing beautifully giving voice to a lost cause well wouldn't be the first time in my family. One of my ancestors was burnt at the stake for championing lost cause but I talk me out of it. There is a huge battle to be fought as we come out of this pandemic to regain the freedoms that we have surrendered in a flash. We've passed some horrendously illiberal legislation through parliament in the last couple of months Likewise in Congress and not only that we've seen The police in this country. I'm doing the most ridiculous over interpretation of the rules that have been paused. And you know we had a senior police officers stand up and says I'm not saying we've been inside the supermarket and we've looked inside people's pockets and on the whole that doing the right thing by non essential items but if they start so we will don't don't be afraid of it we will go in and we will arrest them what I mean. Where did that come from? How do we know the people like that in our society who even thought like that and there's a lot of people who are not in the place who are any too happy to tell neighbors L. for walking down the streets to slowly? Are you taking exercise or are you go shopping? You know you're wondering look that's not allowed. You know the petty Bossy -ness of society. That is a merged in the last month and a half is really frightening. And if there's even a hint that at the end of this we say well I spent about to keep some of these rules so need them then I and others pollen will be doing on. Dont to prevent happening but it will be not bill struggle but I will say one thing. It's ten years since the rational came out in every single one of those years I've been interviewed at some time or other but the thesis of of that Book and every single one of those years people have started the questions with well. You might have been right up until now but look at. What's happening now does it? He Bowler epidemic a war in Ukraine. Those are war in Syria. This euro zone crisis. Whatever it is that people have thrown at me and said see. It's all going wrong and we got past those we will get past this. We'll restore liberty. We will sail on into the Sunlit uplands of the twenty twenties have a very innovative time and Do great things. Do you have your diarrhea on your desk.

"Today the author of the Marvelous New Book how innovation works the journalist Matt Ridley or as he is known in the House of Lords. The right honorable. The viscount Ridley a graduate of Modlin College Oxford with a degree in Zoology Matt wrote for a number of years at the economist. Spending some five years here in the United States. He's the author of many books on science and technology including his classic work. The two thousand ten book the rational optimist since two thousand thirteen viscount. Ridley has sat as a conservative in the House of Lords Matt. Thanks for making the time and welcome to everyone for to this special plague time addition of uncommon knowledge with Peter Robinson. Ready to join you. I'M LOCKED DOWN. In Palo Alto in Europe. Northumberland correct assembled in the north of England and It's beautiful weather here about. It's kind of Palo. Alto weather actually childless sky today and you and your family are well. You've escaped this things everywhere as well. So far will come to the book in a moment. But there's a kind of mandatory question for you. This is not Ridley writing recently in the spectator quote until this year. I thought this kind of infectious pandemic could not happen today. The defeat of infectious diseases as a cause of death has been so complete as to seem invincible plague smallpox typhoid measles. Polio whooping cough and many more eradicated or nearly so it turns out that I and many others were wrong. How did you miss it? Well two reasons one is. I got so used to people crying wolf and being wrong that of course. I didn't pay enough attention to people who were crying. Wolf from were right and actually there are out there. Some very prescient warnings About what's happening in Chinese wok markets about what's happening in terms of understanding the infectivity of Corona viruses in bats in China turns out they can infect human beings without adapting. I don't need to go through an evolutionary phase. It can go straight into us. That's a discovery that I'd missed but it was made for five years ago So I think a big part of this is that we've been looking in the wrong direction. We've been Panicking about climate change as a World and we should have been worrying about pandemics This specific argument. I made in that paragraph. Was that every other pandemic threat from a to saws to swine flu bird flu but proved to be a overblown and they had disappointed. If you like SPANDEX and iphone dot was because on new genomic knowledge of these viruses was so fast and so good we could read their genomes in in hours that we would be able to mobilize the work of science against them And it turns out that vaccine development really has lagged behind other forms of innovation and actually I found it very interesting article from last year before the pandemic by Wayne. Who's the head of the Global Vaccine Project in New York saying We really need to get better at making vaccines. It's far too slow. It's far too old fashioned very little being done about it and I think he was right so if I'm a hopeless Lehman so you're just going to have to talk some baby talk to get me through this map but is it correct to say that vaccines are still developed. The way most drugs used to be that is to say hit or miss these days as I understand it. Our knowledge of molecular structure has reached the point where you can effectively. Well this is an oversimplification. But you can use the computer to design the drug that you want and then go off and you've narrowed very dramatically. The number of different outcomes. So you've you've shrunk cone of trial and error so to speak but with axes for some reason it's still the old fashioned way. You just try this damn thing and if it doesn't work try another. It's like Edison. To whom will come in a moment. Edison trying as you note six thousand different fibrous plants before he hit on the right filament. Light Bulb is that so well yes and no. I think I think it's You're not wrong that that there's a huge amount of hit and miss and trial and error. In Vaccine Development. There is still in drugs to And as that example of Edison shows one of my arguments is that we must take way the space for trial and error. Because actually. That's how we've always done innovation. It's a hugely part of innovation. You never get it right first. Time your your. Your brilliant insight isn't count. It's honing that incite through trial and error. So I think that's really the problem. The problem is it. Just the the Once you've got what you think is a vaccine. You have to test animals You've after expose the animals to the disease that takes time you then have to try and Find out that it's safe and human beings Once you've done that you're GonNa have to give her a bunch of human beings and hope they come in contact with the disease. I saw an otherwise. You don't know if it works. You know there's no other way ready. So it's very time consuming and The the example of Bowler is very interesting because firms did develop it. Bola vaccines in fourteen. Fifteen when the pandemic epidemic of Ebola is happening Africa but by the time they got them going the epidemic was and there were not enough volunteers to come forward to test it so it never in the end got probably tested and that is a nice example of why vaccines on profitable for the drug industry. The very specific they only deal with disease. If they work they do themselves out of business. Very quickly And even if they don't was disease usually goes away very quickly because the kind of things are dealing with a ten to to come and go so unlike statins which you go and giving people the year after year. They're just not very lucrative and recognizing that problem the gates foundation. The Wellcome Trust. Did something rather good a few years ago? They got together and together with the Norwegian government and the Indian government set up something called the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovation which all about speeding up vaccine vaccine development. But it's only really just going now. My question is why on. Earth didn't the World Health Organization do that twenty s before Why didn't governments of the world with our aid budgets Look into doing that. You know why did it take As as Gates has done quite often. Actually what did it take gates to come along and say here's a better way of spending the money To achieve this 'cause I think vaccine developed is something that could be speeded up. There are lots of new avenues but for doing it. And they need to be tried you are trotting out one of the themes from how innovation works and I suppose we need to introduce the book before we come back to that theme but you note in the book. The at large organizations are seldom the right place for innovation and I have to suppose that argument applies to governments and world health organizations and so forth all right the book itself. How innovation works quote. Innovations come in many forms but one thing they all have in common is that they are enhanced forms of improbability. I love that phrase. But it's certainly needs to be explained. Yes well the. The world tends towards more chaotic and improbable structures. In other words. Your your bedroom gets less tidy if you do nothing about it. You need to put energy into make your bedroom tidy when you've done. So you've made your bedroom less probable more improbable very im- I mean every single one of the books behind me it is incredibly improbable arrangement of atoms. They not only to make the structure of the book but to make the pattern of letters in the words in the book. These are unbelievably IMP. They couldn't come about by chance. And that's what energy does for us we have to put energy into this to reverse entropy that is to say to to Reverse Kale and create order and improbability. And when you think about it everything. Useful in the world has a of improbable structure. I mean it's it's very precisely designed and that's what we human beings are in the business of and by the way so mother nature. I mean that's whatever Lucien is doing is creating improbable structures like you know bodies in braids and we're in the business of creating improbable structures buildings and media conferences these improbable ways of reorganizing. The atoms of the will. And that's in the end. What would doing was searching other improbable outcomes that are useful to us An inducer we have to apply energy. And that's why I stopped my book with energy because I think it is actually very important and I. I used the beautiful analogy from my old friend. Douglas Adams the author of the HITCHHIKER's guide to the galaxy. Who write this rather Baba's phrase in one of his books that one of the book of the Hitchhiker's guide that Iraq it was driven by an infinite improbability drive so I say that human civilization is an infinite improbability drive which I think is what Douglas was getting it is. It is a wonderful phrase one more quotation from the very beginning of the book which feels like a terrible admission at the beginning of a book about innovation and it reads as follows. Yes brace yourself but you are. The one who wrote it. Surprising truth is that nobody really knows why innovation happens and how it happens let alone when and where it will happen next closed quote so it is the nature of innovation that always contains an element of surprise. Well it's partly that we don't know where it's GonNa Flare. Up in terms of which technologies are going to be subject to innovation? People think all innovations speeding up. That's not the case. I mean think about transport I I flew on a seven four seven the other day the other day but a couple of months ago at that was an airplane invented fifty one years ago in nineteen sixty nine magin using computer invented Fifty one years ago you know. It's impossible to imagine. So computers and communications have speeded up incredibly in my lifetime whereas transport is hardly changed the toll and when I was born felt the opposite was going to be the case. All the Futurology of the nineteen fifties is about how we're going to see personal jet packs. Jared Copters for commuting routine. Space travel supersonic. Eilon is all that kind of stuff? None of which happened instead. We got amazing computers and communications which they didn't see coming. Mostly they thought we were gonNA use landlines by now so So in that sense unpredictable it's also unpredictable. Globally in the sense that it's hot. It's it's you can come up with good reasons why. California has been the center of innovation for the last fifty years. You can come up with good reasons. Why Italy was in the fourteen hundreds. You can come up with good reasons. Why China was in the ten hundreds. But it's it's all a bit random. It's all a bit spontaneous. It's all a bit unplanned and of course that's very much my point is that this is a a precious plant that grows in the ground. And what you gotTa do till the ground and make it ready rather than plan an outcome. You can't really plan innovation. You cannot say I'm going to go in UNCREATIVE. Exactly the following innovations because we're fantastic predicting the future in technology As I pointed out in the book you know we don't we didn't he said change. It's coming as an import hunt. You for example. One last brief quotation from the very opening how innovation works in this book. I shall try to tackle this great puzzle. I will do so not by abstract theorizing but mainly by telling stories. Now of course for a layman like me. That's wonderful because you've got what a couple of dozen fascinating stories there. But why did you adopt that technique? Why are you telling stories? It's because I like reading stories. It's taken me a long time to get to this realization. You might think but actually what what what we human beings light reading stories tales about people's lives about who they were why they did things and what happened to them and this to some extent contradicts the theme of my book. Which is that people. Don't not if Thomas Edison had been run over by a tram. Lightbulb would still have been developed. We're twenty one different. People came up with the idea of the light bulb around the same time as it happens. He was the one who made sure. Who's reliable and affordable kind of thing so in a sense Edison doesn't matter But in another sense he math is all because if the if anyone can do it then it's clever of him to be the person who does it by telling these stories about people that I sort of bring out the themes about the technology this this being vid cast morning here in California. But it's evening where you are. We don't have time for story after story after story. People have to buy the book for that. But can you just tell us? Tell US briefly then. The Story of Thomas Edison American sick. They know that but when you read the story and how innovation works you realize you don't you don't know that story briefly the story of Edison and why he why that story if not personally but why what that story tells us that's important. What dozens Biography really tells us is the importance of trial and error. He was someone who spotted the way to do innovation and well. I think he spotted was that you could set up a factory to produce innovations you. Could you could actually set up a a plant. Whose job was to find new ways of arranging the world. The light bulb the nickel battery. These kind of things and you did it by trial and error. You tried and tried and tried six thousand different plant materials as you mentioned before. He came up with Japanese..

The poems are trying to do. And here's the bigger picture is essentially took when I would write for a novel and took out all of the plot synopsis and put in seem ideas and I sent. This is definitely at like I'm done. I is never going to go through and then I was in the top two and that was when I looked at my husband and I said I think I could actually win this thing and also now I have to bright a lot all day every day for like weeks so it got to where It was it was pretty hardcore. Because I'm writing my thesis and I'm also working on this. This new book comes and so what I ended up doing was I would wake up in the morning and I'd have a cup of coffee and I would go for a walk around in circles and just drink the coffee and let my mind do whatever it was going to do ruminate or wander or free range or hone in on something and then I would come in and just write whatever was there. Just just throw it on page and then it would walk away from it and then I would come back and try to shape it into something and that worked really well but it was. It was ten to twelve hour days for three weeks and then I was near the end but I didn't have as much as I needed and so I went back to my social media family in a said. What kinds of things do you associate with nights? That are not the ones that you would already think that because I already have the Sorenson skills and things give me something else. Are they kind of helped me finish it out? You know what I wound up with a book that I never in a million years expected to write or thought I could write or thought anybody would wanna read and apparently I was wrong on all counts which is pretty cool.

So what's the title of Your Book and let's give them the place where they can get in contact with you? So as soon as it's released they can start following it.

Yes so the book is our thirty two things a collection of poems. It should be out sometime next year in two thousand. Twenty weeks gives me Drinking tea and you can connect to. It's me I have instagram. That is not kept up nearly today as it should be an. I'm going to do better and have a twitter account. It's M. Ridley Helms suggests the means on the bottom of the screen and then My website is mostly for teachers and scholar Nerds You can find some of my creative work at World of Myth magazine.

So let's talk about some more things and I wanNA thank all of you for tuning into another episode of Rebecca Sounds Reveille. This was very exciting and it gives us an opportunity to think about historical things and one of them being in the area of violence. There's things that oftentimes we miss. That can be there and really if we take a look at it. From from a historical vantage point we may be able to shift and prevent things from happening in the future so if we can find a way to look at it from a perspective that can actually be fun. Dr Els has done and we can really begin to really make an impact in a different way without it being so So dark so do take a look at the things that she's provided and we are going to stay on top of what she's got going. I really excited about this. Show that we've had today. I ask that you share this with your friends.
