"Ryan, you want to go first? You want me to go first? First of all, I just want to say there's no better place than Western New York. We got a foot of snow last week. This sucks. How is it down in North Carolina? It was cold today. It was about 55. 55 is cold. 55 and sunny. I hate you. Rob, did you mute your mic? Oh, whoops. Yeah, I was muted. I should have known that little red light was blinking. Yeah, 55 is not cold, by the way. That would feel hot right now here. What's the Valley Winter song down there? Dude, he had no idea what to say. I stumped him. I stumped Anthony instead of the Rob. I have no idea what you're talking about. Alright, I'm going first. Are you ready? We were talking about the Bills and coaching earlier this episode, so I've got two parts stumped to Rob here. I'm going to start right now. I'm trying to keep this under a minute. Ready, set, go. Since 2020, when the Bills have been good and they thought maybe they could compete with the Chiefs, the Bills have had 34 games that have been decided within one score. What is their record? You said 34 games? Yep. 17-17. Nailed it. Very good. The Chiefs record in that same time period, they've had 39 games. What's their record? 29-10. Nailed it. Really? Let's go. That just shows. That's seven more. First of all, very impressive. That was it? I have another thing. Seven more wins for the Chiefs, which leads to them being home field advantage, which leads to them being in the AFC Championship game, which leads to them being in the Super Bowl. Coaching matters. Beep. That's number one. Number two. This is a different segment. I'm going to have to post two videos. Dude, you just ran up your minute. A lot of people want Sean McDermott fired. I am one of them. Who has coached more games than Sean McDermott for the Buffalo Bills? Marv Levy. That's one. There's one other one. You have to go back to 62 prior to the merger. Yeah, I don't know that. Lou Saban. Yeah, okay. Then Sean McDermott is third with 109. Who has the best winning percentage out of all the Bills coaches? It's got to be Sean McDermott, right? Sean McDermott. He's 62% and Marv Levy is 61, so he's got that. Now the most impressive stump to rob, can you go in order back to the year you were born with the Bills coaches? Marv Levy? No, so go Sean McDermott. Oh, sorry. Now? Yeah, who is prior to Sean McDermott? Sean McDermott. Oh, jeez, was it Rex Ryan? Yep. Mike Malarkey? No, I skipped someone there. Doug Morone. Yep, and then you skipped... Craig Williams is in there, but I don't know the order. Oh, Chan Gailey. Yep, so it's McDermott, Rex Ryan, Doug Morone, Chan Gailey, and then... Dick Duron. Dick Duron. Mike Malarkey.

A highlight from Ep. 123 - Unpacking the Influence of 1965: A Year that Shaped Music and Film
"Well, here we are, episode 123. In for my friend Todd Sorkin, aka Big Head Todd the Wet Sprocket. That's 100 plus 23 equals 123. His head is so big, yet his brain is so small. Anyway, on this episode, The Wrecking Two is back in action. Full force tonight. We will be talking about the year 1965. I don't think we've ever gone back this far. Talking about the music and the movies. Nice little addition, people like it. Of 1965, so sit back, relax, stop making your peace signs, because that was right around the corner. Enjoy the show. Thank you, Amanda, for that wonderful introduction, as usual, over that wonderful introduction music created by the one and only, the professor, Mr. ... Only because he did that song. I'm going to give him a little bit of ... Let me get rid of that. I'll give him a little bit of credit. Mr. Lou Colicchio did the intro. Here we go, here we go. I don't even have The Wrecking Two on the screen yet, and Big Head Todd the Wet Sprocket comes in with, I am here, entertain me, and my big head. He gets it. He's finally seen. Sometimes I can kind of get it in there, just kind of ... Just own it. He has officially owned it. His head is bulbous. He's got a bulbous head. Speaking of bulbous, it's time Mark Smith from the ... Rolling Stone, Penalty Box, right off the bat. See that? And Lou Colicchio from the Music Brothers Progress, who has never seen Jackie Brown, Penalty Box right off the bat from both of them motherfuckers. They're bolted. I am not messing around tonight. Oh, no, no, no. We are not playing. It comes on my reading that rag, Rolling Stone. Let's try this again, gentlemen. Don't do it, Mark. I see you. I see Mark. He's reaching for it. All right. Let's bring him on. What do you want to get tortured for now? Mark Smith. You got the F bomb in the first three minutes. Come on. It's your fault. It's your fault, and it's Lou's fault. Oh, did I say that when Lou came before he came, or after he came out? Lou didn't hear that. Look at Lou. He's got that notebook. This is the Jackie Brown thing you're talking about. That's the movie. Quentin Tarantino movie. San Quentin Tarantino. Oh, Jesus. I think he did Pulp Fiction, right? Oh, you know what? You're in. Again. I agree. Put him away. I think. I think. Pulp Fiction was up for Best Picture. It got robbed. It got robbed by fucking, what was it, Training Day, I think. Beat it that year. Oh, okay. Which is just another bad cop movie. Were you lucky enough to see Pulp Fiction before the hype? Oh, dude. Are you kidding me? Oh, yeah. Me too. Multiple times in the theater. One of the only movies I've ever seen. I think I saw it in the movie theater four or five times. I couldn't get enough of it. I just heard. Oh, I forgot Lou. I just heard John Travolta's back. And so I go see this movie, right? And I had no idea what I was in for. Man, that was good. I didn't see Reservoir Dogs. I didn't know anything about Quentin. Wow. What a surprise when I saw that. I saw it when it first came out there. I saw it with my in -laws. My very old school Italian conservative in -laws. They were kind of. My mother -in -law was a little. She was pretty cool. My father -in -law was pretty uptight about it. Especially the hillbilly scene. Oh, in Pulp Fiction? Oh, yeah. Yeah. That was something I didn't see coming.

What will the unit look like now Jonathan Allen? We're definitely gonna simplify things you know we got a lot of young guys on the back end have them thinking less and just playing faster and you know that includes the linebackers and the D -line. Alright break it down for me like I'm six Kendall Fuller what does simplify the defense mean exactly? You're just able to focus in on certain thoughts things that you know that we're gonna run you're just able When you watch tape you're able to put yourself in those plays and prepare yourself to be where you need to be once you see see certain plays and depending on how the offense wants to attack us and things like that so it's gonna be fun to get out there Us as a defense as players you know we can't always focus on what's being called to go out there and execute what it is and do it at a high level. The defense was without Emmanuel Forbes and James Smith -Williams at is easy for me to say and Tyler Larson absent from the O -line.

Coach LA and Robbie Lee DeBarros Discuss Redefining Self-Care
"Are some things that you keep that you do to keep that creative juice going to be able to stay here? Because life is always life. So what's your self -care routine like? What does Robbie do? Well, I have to be honest, I'm not doing a very good job of self -care. OK, I love her honesty. So what makes you think you're not doing a good job? Oh, I know I'm not. I'm not I'm not eating because it's so and I have to do better. Like this whole thing is this like leaving a organization that I was at for twenty four years and working for myself full time, I'm still getting used to that. It's such a huge change. It's major. I know I talked about the money side of it. That's big, too. But just mentally, it's a lot. It's a lot to take in. It's it's been what for four months now. I'm still not totally I'm still not totally into it. So I'm still trying to get used to that that shift. So and it's busy. We have a lot going on. We just launched the app. We're getting ready. We did the party. We're getting ready to go to a tech conference. We've got our licensing and royalty management that we're trying to get in place. There's just so much. And I'm I'm not a perfectionist because I know there's no such thing as being perfect. But I do strive to be as perfect as I can. So sometimes I think I push myself a little too much. I'm a workaholic, so I have to stop. So I've been spending time, though, really just trying to talk to myself and say, Rob, you need to slow down. You need to just take a break. Like literally, I'll be walking in the hallway on my way to go do something to run back to the to the laptop to do something. And I'll catch myself and say, you don't need to do that right now. Chill out. Why don't we just go sit down and watch a little TV right now and just, you know, clear out our head. I would prefer to maybe work out or something, but I'm not there yet. I'm trying to get back to that. But even something as simple as as simple as that. I'm not again, I'm not doing a good job right now. Lala. However, the fact that I can sit here and say that and recognize it is a positive thing for me because I'm aware of it so I can control things and and work on things that I'm mindful of that I'm not oblivious to. So I guess that's the positive that comes out of that. And now we're talking about it. So now it's probably go go tomorrow and I'll I'll be even better tomorrow because we're talking about it now together on the air. And I'm going to say give yourself some grace because the self -awareness is something a lot of people lack. And I bet you're doing a better job than, you know, even being able to say, take that break. Yeah. Go watch a movie. It's self -care. Yeah. Being able to take those deep breaths and that positive self -talk is self -care. So I always encourage people to think about what is their definition and what the self -care look like, because sometimes we can have a narrow scope and not know a lot of it is just taking those little pauses here and there, you know, sitting down for a few minutes, talking positively to yourself about what you can do. Those reminders, all of that is psychological self -care. So sometimes we think it's only, OK, I'm going to go on a vacation, right? I'm going to go get my nails because the nails look good guys. So she's up keeping herself like she looks good. So she got she got the maintenance self -care down. So I don't know what that she's talking about. OK, her skin is vibrant. She always looks good. She smells nice. You know, she go on trips. So what you talk about with this? But but what what would you change since you're saying you're not doing a good enough job? What would you do differently? If you if you could wake up tomorrow? Let me give you that. Give it clarity. You could wake up tomorrow and your self -care was completely perfect. It was a 10. What would it look like? I'd be eating better. I'd be working out more. It's just for health reasons to stay healthy. Just spending more time with family and friends and just having some, you know, more girl time, like I'm used to having a lot more of our girl time to just kind of talk and connect and chop it up and talk about things that we, you know, we go through. I don't get as much as I haven't had as much of that. Vacations, I like to vacation. Last vacation I had was with you. We was on a vacation that was May, May to June. Yeah, we had a good time. We did. But you know what? Even that's the last one I was on to. Me too. But even going on that vacation, my whole mindset was I don't want to do anything. I want to go. I knew there was so and of course I did because it was a dope cruise. There was so much going on. I couldn't help myself. But my mindset was. I just need to go and do nothing

"By Maximus moving people and technology forward. Rob Woodfork here. Rob last I checked Miami had maybe the best offense in the NFL and they're playing the commanders this week. Yeah, to be exact They are the top team in total offense passing yardage. They're ranked second in scoring behind Dallas, which feels little a off since the Cowboys score on defense so much. But the commanders are hosting this Miami Dolphins with the bottom line. Sam Helen the offense need to score early and often. Are you feeling that pressure sling to it Sammy? Honestly, I don't really think about it. You know, I think you know as an offense we try to do everything we can do every single week and we Try to control we can control our jobs and offense is to score more points than our opponent And so we we hold ourselves to a high Standard and we feel like if we play that standard we have a chance to win every single game Oh, did I mention the Dolphins We scored 70 points on the Denver Broncos back in week three. Yeah. What do you think all that speed He does to Washington's 30th ranked pass defense hmm might not might not be pretty It will I think the the turf at FedEx Field is gonna slow this team down way more than the commanders can And speaking of the dolphins remember when Tyree kills scored a touchdown grabbed the phone and recorded himself doing a The staffer whose camera was used had his game credentials suspended for the rest of the season and May not ever be allowed to return now.

Robbie Lee DeBarros Talks Taking on Other People's Stuff and Seeking Therapy
"In this, a lot of people can probably relate to it, but I have a tendency to take on other people's stuff. Okay. Can we talk about that? You know, if you know what Ms. Rob is talking about, taking on other people's stuff, that is a whole word. I think often I've seen people come because of that, a trigger that they didn't expect because, you know, you get to a point in your life when you think you're good and something doesn't bother you and then all of a sudden you're like, wait a minute, I thought I dealt with that, or relationships, relationships be they're going right or wrong and you realize I really love this person, I want this to work and I see my stuff, or they're telling you about your stuff. Those are the things that usually prompt people to come to therapy, at least that's what my experience has been. 90 % of my practice is women of color, right? Successful women at that, right? And it's usually from that space of like, I just need to get some stuff off my chest. I need a sounding board. I need to make sure you're licensed and that you are going to give me some solid things to think about. Not so much advice, but I want you to question and I want you to challenge me to think about my thinking and to make these choices for myself and to validate me, right? Where I know you're not just gassing me because you're my home girl or you're my mother or you're my dude and you got some, as you called it, what'd you say you get, you got five cents in my nickel or whatever you said, I never heard that. I never heard that phrase before, but you got to, you got some keeping me wherever I am or whatever's going on in my life, there's some stake in it for you, right? Like there's some stake in it. So I don't want to completely tell you about yourself because I don't want you not to talk about me versus with me, I'm like, Hey, so you're not going to always like me. Um, I'm not here to be your friend, but I'll feel like I'm your friend, but you're coming to me because you want a therapist and the therapist means that something is bothering you and that's like, I tell us like a mental massage. If you ever got a massage before they get to that part and they say, tell me if it's too much pressure. Yep. Right. But you know, your body's aching and they get to that spot and they start rubbing. You go, Ooh, yep. Right there. I really want you to stop, but you're kind of getting the knot out. So keep going. I'm going to take this because after you're finished massaging it, I'm going to get a sense of relief. And I feel like that's what therapy often does. Absolutely. A good therapist is not afraid to go deep and to do that deep tissue with you and rub that spot and get you to really get that knot out. Yeah. You know, I like to use, you know, analogies cause sometimes people don't get it like therapy is not always comfortable. No. I remember, you know, in one session I just sat there and cried and she let me. And that's all it was. And again, when you talk about just, I needed to release some things and I, and you know, I think just recognizing the person that you are is important, right? Very important. Self -awareness. And knowing that I tend to take on other people's things, right? I tend to push my own needs sometimes to the side and want to take care of everybody around me and not take care of that, do that self -care for, for myself. And you know, I just got to a point where it just, it piled up and piled up and piled up. And then I had to get that release and I turned to therapy and I was, it was really surprising too, because I'd never, you know, even thought about the therapy before. I'd never had therapy. I'd never thought about therapy. It was never anything that, I know there are stereotypes, especially in the black community. Right. Like, oh, so you crazy now. Right. Right. What's wrong with you? Right. You don't need no therapist. You can figure this out. You're a smart woman. You know, you got it all together. What's wrong? Like, you know? So I do think that. How did you know? What, what, what's the sign that you were like, yeah, I'm going to go talk to somebody. Cause I don't think a lot of people recognize that sign. Yeah. Probably just listening to your, yourself, your body. Cause it weighs on you, right. In types of stress and anxiety and things like that. You feel it, you know? And I just got to a point where it was just affecting me just in my daily life,
A highlight from $1.96 Billion Crypto Powerhouse! (What You Need To Know About Compound)
"Listen up, folks. I need you to stop saying yes to crappy 0 .1 % interest your bank offers because, frankly, they're making billions and robbing you blind. And that's why I'm here to tell you about Compound Finance and its native token comp and how it could be the best way to make your money work for you. But be careful. This video may make you never want to use a bank ever again. It's time to discover crypto. Compound is a permissionless and decentralized finance protocol that was founded by Robert Leshner and Jeff Hayes back in August of 2017. And about a year later, the Compound protocol launched on the Ethereum blockchain. It started out with $25 million raised in a seed round in 2018 and $8 .2 million worth of venture funding that was raised at the end of 2019. Compound has notable investors like Bain Capital, Coinbase, Dragonfly Capital, Polychain Capital, A16Z and Paradigm. Then, in the midst of global lockdowns, Compound ICOed in June 2020. ICO means Initial Coin Offering, which is similar to an IPO in TradFi land. Initially, 42 % of the tokens were allocated to liquidity mining, about 24 % to shareholders, 22 % to the founders and team, and then 7 .7 % to the community and 3 .7 % to future team members. Within 5 days of the ICO, the price of Comp jumped to over $300. And at the height of the last bull run of 2021, one Comp was worth over $900 USD. Comp has a total supply of $10 million and its circulating supply has reached almost $7 million. Comp is inflationary and with a little over 1 ,200 Comp emitted per day, Comp is estimated to reach its maximum cap around July 2024. These emissions are distributed to the protocol users, half going to suppliers of the assets and the other half to the borrowers. Other than holding Comp as an investment vehicle, you can also use it for governance, submitting and voting on proposals. Okay, so let's talk a bit more about what the protocol actually does. But before we do, make sure you like this video, subscribe to the channel if you haven't already. Compound creates money market funds in the crypto space, pulling tokens from users with algorithmically determined interest rates based on the supply and demand for the tokens. So if a lot of people want to borrow USDC, but not a lot of people are lending, the interest rate goes up and vice versa. Compound uses smart contracts, which are autonomous decentralized digital contracts that automatically execute tasks once a certain requirement is met. Compound smart contracts allow peer to peer borrowing and lending directly without a centralized intermediary like a bank or the mob. But who am I kidding? They're basically the same thing. When you lend an asset on Compound, you receive a new asset representing what you're lending. For example, if you lent USDC, you'll receive CUSDC in return. You can supply tokens through the protocol and earn a return as well as take out a loan. And Compound covers its expenses by taking a small percentage of the interest earned. Compound was also one of the first platforms to introduce yield farming, which means users lock up their tokens to earn rewards. But you may be thinking, wait, didn't a ton of lending platform just go into bankruptcy? Looking at you, Celsius and BlockFi, why is Compound better? Well, remember, those other companies were centralized entities, not to mention their loans were under collateralized and the management of those companies made really bad investment decisions with their users funds. The collapse of these companies actually leaves Compound in a rosy light because it shows exactly how much collateral protocols need to demand to provide sustainable loans. With a decentralized platform, the community votes on the direction of the protocol. So there's less opportunity for the greed and recklessness of the few to completely wreck the life savings of the many. But remember, I'm not recommending you put your life savings into any one platform. In fact, I'm not recommending anything. This isn't financial advice, and you always have to do your own research and practice proper risk management. There's no way to earn yield on crypto that is 100 % safe. But Compound has almost $2 billion total value locked with $2 .34 billion of collateral that's backing $889 million worth of borrowing. That's about 1 .5 times the amount of the loans that Compound has given out, which means the platform will be able to weather the ups and downs of the bear and bull markets. And funnily enough, BlockFi, Celsius, and Compound were all founded in 2017, and yet Compound is the only one who made it out of the dark depths of the 2022 bear market, alive and kicking. Plus, Compound doesn't require KYC or identity verification, so you can borrow or earn interest without giving away your priceless personal information to an entity that could really do anything it wants with your data. But another reason we think Compound is worth talking about is that it's been vigorously audited and verified in comparison to the other decentralized lending platforms, which means Compound is attempting to make your assets as secure as possible. And Compound is so concerned about security that it takes every opportunity to learn from the mistakes of other protocols. Back in October 2022, Compound paused the supply of YFI, ZRX, BAT, and Maker to protect against market manipulation attacks after a Comp governance proposal called out the low liquidity for these tokens and potential vulnerabilities for the platform. And after Ave experienced an exploit attempt back in the fall of 2022, Compound passed a proposal that imposed loan limits and introduced borrowing caps for certain coins in an attempt to lower risk. This brings me back to how important the open source decentralized governance is for the safety of Compound. The community has the platform and the user's best interest in mind and work together to protect them. Compound has been quietly building over the past year in anticipation of the forthcoming bull run. In May 2023, Compound announced it would now be available on Arbitrum, which is the largest layer two scaling solution in terms of total value locked. For now, you can only use ARB, GMX, Wrapped ETH, and Wrapped Bitcoin to borrow USDC, which is another tip by Compound to manage risk on its platform. And if that wasn't enough hype for you, Compound also recently launched a mechanism called Encomber, which allows users to retain ownership of their tokens while granting other users the right to transfer their tokens. This is a huge milestone for the platform because it provides a ton of potential use cases. Obviously, this assists the current lending markets because users can encumber their tokens as collateral to lending markets, allowing them to maintain custody. This also creates an opportunity for trading where a user could encumber their tokens to a logic contract that has the option to buy the tokens at a certain price. And if that price isn't met or the contract expires, the tokens never leave the seller's account. But I know there are countless potential use cases for this technology, and I'm excited to see where it goes. The other big piece of Compound news is that the founder resigned over the summer. You think that would make investors nervous, but funnily enough, it had the opposite effect. The price of Comp skyrocketed from a low in June around $26 to a high in July of almost $80. That's almost a 3X during the bear market, folks. Robert Leshner, who you'll remember as one of the Compound founders, resigned as CEO to focus on his new business venture, Superstate Trust, which is a fund focusing on short -term government bonds, government agency securities and other government -backed instruments. Leshner had already raised $4 million from a variety of DeFi investors when he made this announcement. And the coolest part about Superstate is that it plans to use Ethereum blockchain as a secondary record -keeping tool. This seems to mean that the shares in the fund will be recorded on ETH. Leshner wrote, This statement implied that Superstate shares might eventually be available on Chain, causing rumors to run rampant that Comp holders might receive an airdrop of Superstate tokens. If you want to pick up some Comp, you can get it on various centralized exchanges like Binance, Coinbase and Kraken, or you can check out decentralized options like Uniswap or SushiSwap. I think Comp is a sleeping giant that will crush the next bull run. But I'd love to hear what you think. Are you an investor in Comp? Do you think you'll go back to its all -time high in the next bull run? Or will it soar past to the moon? Leave a comment below and tell me what you think. And I'll see you at the top.

Coming up, we're gonna have Rob Mahoney talking after the two Thursday night TNT NBA games. We're gonna react to basically everything we've seen for the last three days. Just things that have jumped out to us. And then Peter Schrager is gonna come on and talk about the NFL. Do we have a best team? What are we noticing through seven weeks? What can we expect in week eight that will lead to million dollar picks? And that is today's podcast. Let's bring in our friends from Pearl Jam. Here we go. All right, we're taping this. It's almost 10 o 'clock on Thursday night, Pacific time. Rob Mahoney is here from The Ringer NBA and showing TheRinger .com. We stayed up late because these were two good games. We've had three straight days of very entertaining basketball and we gotta start with the biggest story. Kelly Oubre in the Sixers. What a signing that was, he looks great. No, we just watched LeBron versus the Suns. LeBron's 29 minute limit I think is out the window. He played the whole fourth quarter. And then made the two big head down just going to the basket plays at the end. But biggest thing that's jumped out to you in the last three days is what? Lakers wise or just in general? In general. I think a lot of these teams that we expect to be really good clearly have some assembly required. And the Lakers are one of those teams. I think we saw that from the Bucks and the Sixers tonight too. We're seeing it certainly with the first days of the Victor Webinama experience. Everyone is getting up to speed into their rhythms, trying to understand how all these new pieces fit together. Not revelatory for the opening days of the season to feel that way, but I think even some of the stuff that personally I thought was going to be seamless, like the Giannis, Dame pick and roll, there's some kinks in it that they're going to have to figure out over time. Lakers I thought were the one that surprised me on that one because I thought they were one of the teams that were going to have the advantage coming in. You think about last year's team compared to this year's team. It doesn't seem like Reeves is involved enough either game that, I don't want to say he's an afterthought, but it just felt like he was more in the mix in the playoffs last year. And I liked what Schroeder did for them last year and he was good on Toronto last night and really fit in with what they did. So they're going to have to figure out that Vincent D 'Lo thing. Wood was playing crunch time, which I was really surprised. Did you think we'd be getting this much Christian Wood? I thought that was like a flyer for them. Guarding Kevin Durant on some possessions, wild stuff. But if nothing else, we can trust that when Christian Wood is out there, he will be Christian Wood. In these uncertain times, we can always fall back on that. He certainly had his fair share of like black hole kind of possessions in this game, but he also does play into the Lakers advantages in terms of their length, right? Their size against a team like Phoenix, they're just going to be able to out muscle, get to rebounds, get to balls that they can't get to. So that part of it paid off, I thought in terms of just like having another big out there and certainly the Anthony Davis experiment continues as far as like, do you want more size with him? Do you want to play small with him? There's always that internal question because he seems a little reluctant to do it on a full -time basis, but I'm sure Christian Wood's going to get his shots. I mean, clearly Jackson Hayes is going to get some shots in the rotation to be a meaningful part of the Lakers, the mix there for the Lakers. So I don't know. I think Darvin Ham has a lot of questions to figure out, including the one you listed with Austin Reeves, which is like, who has the ball? Who's initiating for us? Who is involved on a possession to possession basis? Because this game, this was a lot of D 'Angelo Russell, and it was a lot of a better version of D 'Angelo Russell than maybe we saw the other night, but it still feels like a lot. 33 minutes for him tonight. Yeah, Reeves, seven shots, one assist. And I thought all of his usage stuff was going to go up, but it seems like it drifted Russell's way. The other thing I was surprised, I thought Rui was going to be a bigger part of this team. I only played 12 minutes, but I haven't changed my thought on them. They're just such a big, problematic team. And if you're the Suns and you're feeling good after that Warriors game, right? And the Warriors, no Draymond, they were able to overpower them a little on the boards. The two centers had 22. And then tonight you see the flip side of the use of Nurkic experience, where it's like, you're getting zero room protection and you're getting somebody who's just going to be confused anytime somebody is coming off a pick. Basically Lebron at the end of the game just said, I'm going to go attack that guy. Yeah, I'm going to go attack that guy right there. Durant was better tonight, at least for the first three quarters that he looked on Tuesday night. It was really cool just seeing those guys on a basketball court after all these years. As I get older, I'm older than you, but just think like, man, this goes way back now. We're talking mid 2000s was the first time these two guys played basketball against each other and it's still going on. So that was in a cool way kind of lingering over this game. I was enjoying that one. How do you think Durant looks in terms of being a 35 year old guy who they gave up three first rounders and two swaps and Mikhail Bridges and Cam Johnson for? It feels like a slightly loaded question. Yeah. He's looked good. And certainly as you said, the first three quarters of this game looked more than good enough. I think the problem was just like this version of the Suns like felt very James Harden is hurt and Kyrie Irving won't get the shot. Nets, you know, just like Kevin Durant and a bunch of like - I blocked that net out of my mind. I think a lot of us have tried to, but you know, him with a lot of like serviceable workaday role players can get you so far. But as you saw on this one, against a really good defensive team like the Lakers in the fourth quarter, they can just shut the water off. And this is where, you know, I'm nervous about the Suns for a variety of reasons. I think if it was just the defense or just the depth or just the injury risk of their core guys, I would feel better. But it's all of the above all the time. And that's going to put Durant in some games like this one. It's going to put Yusef Nurkic in positions like this one where all of a sudden he's triggering your offense because you don't really have a default point guard out there. And sometimes the value of having a point guard in your rotation, I don't think it's really going to matter when Beal and Booker and Durant are playing together. Those guys can all handle and play make and do everything they need to do. But in a game like this, where two of those guys are out, sometimes it helps to just be able to run some offense that doesn't have to involve Kevin Durant pounding the rock through pick and roll. Yeah, 28 shots for him today. 13 including, and then 13 free throws. He played 39 minutes and was also playing the five in stretches. And this is game two. They had to basically try to unlock 2007 Texas Longhorns Durant. That's the last guy I want to be throwing miles on, maybe in the entire league other than LeBron. Cause he's, you know. That's going to be true for Booker and Beal too, right? Like when any of these guys are out, those three, whoever's left is going to have to play huge minutes or else you get into Grayson Allen and Drew Eubanks are playing like a massive role in your rotation. And I like those guys. I like Drew Eubanks. Maybe not like tamper and lose a second round pick like Drew Eubanks, like some teams do, but. I'd lose 50K for him. Maybe not a second round pick. It's a little steep. Yeah. The other game, Milwaukee Philly. So no Harden. I wish there was a way to just mute the entire Harden story of all coverage for it. Anything online, anything on Twitter, all conversations. I just don't want to hear it anymore. And I don't think he has any interest in playing. And I just think, just tell us when he gets traded. Their best chance now, now that the, especially the Clippers last night looked great.
A highlight from Top 5 Witch Movies W/ Lucy Jane Devane & Scott Hodgson
"What's next for you guys then? Maleficent Oh, interesting Interesting choice So do we need to say that We realise that in some circles She's technically Could be cast as a fairy But we think she's a sorceress That's what puts a curse on In the original Sleeping Beauty She's more of a sorceress And she curses the baby I think in some circles There's the succubus Which is the seductive Half demon Or partial demon And I think there's a lot of witches Who are part demon anyway So I think it's kind of all in the same wheelhouse I'll allow it Excellent I really wasn't expecting To like this as much as I did I was quite surprised I'm not a big fan of Sleeping Beauty It's one of the Disney films I wouldn't watch Normally, if it's on There's some like The Lion King Sword in the Stone Pinocchio If it's on, then you'd watch the remainder of it But yeah, Sleeping Beauty Never caught my eye I think Lucy was watching this With her next door neighbour About five, six years ago Ah yes Maybe he was locked out Possibly I think maybe he Sort of saw it on Netflix or something I think he likes Disney He does like Disney films So we were having a bit of a weekend So we thought we'd give it a shot And yeah, it was really good Obviously Angelina Jolie Playing Maleficent And I think she does a brilliant job And it kind of looks like she's having a whale At the time as well Obviously very striking with her cheekbones I think it's With the Disney remakes Recently, they've got Very lazy with them But this, they actually tried something different So obviously, she's the evil Witch in the original But then they've twisted it So we see her backstory Why she is the way she is But then, she's not portrayed As an evil witch She Evil does things, but she also does Good things as well So yeah They put a twist on the original Film which I think they've sort of lost their Lost their balls with all the recent remakes That they've been doing and they've just been Copy and pasting it But yeah, I really didn't expect to like it As much as I did I think there's a real Beautiful element that is that I don't know if it's kind of that Adopted kind of Thing is that you can You can still love someone Or something, even though they're not your own Like they're not your child But she kind of cares for This baby She sort of starts calling it Beastie, which I really kind of like But she can't help herself She can't help herself but care for her And she sees the kind of The kind of haphazard fairies Sort of just making a bit of a hash of it And leaving the baby outside And you know She's watching over her as she grows Up and she's At arms length kind of caring for The baby and watching it grow And then this love sort of Builds and I just think that's a really Powerful thing but You can have so much love For someone who Isn't your You know, you're blood essentially And I think that for me is And it actually makes me cry This film When we know She kind of gets to the end I think it's just so clever how It just flips everything on its head Of what we know about When we were watching Disney films and it's always like The prince kisses The princess and everything Is perfect And actually it just kind of flips all of that On its head and Prince Charming Isn't true love's kiss Sorry spoiler alert You should probably just Spoilers for Maleficent But She's just And I think as well I love that she's The queen of the fairy world In her own right she's got her power And her place and her magic And this kind of stuff And it's when these two worlds collide a little bit But it does, yeah, it kind of makes me cry Maleficent, it's a real Real beautiful moment when You know, it's that kind of True love I guess, it's really sweet That unconditional love I suppose But I like that, I like that again Like you said, it flips it It's not the stereotypical like, oh here comes the bloke Here he comes to save the day It's not the man's story It's this story of kind of Genuine, kind of female Feminine, non romantic love And you see Her kind of melt Because initially she's very nice And then she's robbed of her wings And again she becomes hard Bitter and twisted So much so she's like, curse that child You know, but then even then In this version it's very much like If I remember rightly in the Sleeping Beauty version It's the fairies that stop it From being a death curse But this, she changes her own mind And goes actually, she'll just sleep She'll sleep forever And then like you said, the fairies are A little bit like, a bit useless In the Sleeping Beauty one But then they expand that And make them even more useless than this To give Maleficent her Kind of, her power I guess But I think Angelina Jolie is great in this I think it's one of her stand out performance She clearly cared about the character In this interpretation And like you said, she's putting on all the camp She's loving It's delicious for her She's living deliciously In this film, like she's absolutely loving it Especially towards the end I think it's all her costume changes And it's this sort of like tight black leather piece Oh I bet you like that Scott And then she sort of gets her wings back I really There's like a real, almost like a bit of a Marvel moment Yeah absolutely It feels like a Marvel movie She goes from wearing like dresses To when she gets her wings back And she's in that kind of great hall And she just kind of stands up And you just see her in this like So all of a sudden she's wearing like Head to toe kind of black leather But she's got pants as in like trousers on She's not wearing a dress And these wings sort of This silhouette and she just kind of like rises up And takes everybody out And I was just, said to you I was like, oh it's like, that for me She is like, she's a badass It's great It's definitely going with that vibe She's the hero of this tale And absolutely she's powered up again She's found who she is She knows what she's fighting for She's found herself She's not this evil, dark She does try and lift the curse But she knows it's like a permanent curse There's that moment where she's like, shit it's not working So yeah, I enjoy this as well It's a really good fit We all have a lot of Yeah, a lot of respect for Maleficent It's great I do kind of wish she'd turned into the dragon there Like in the original Yeah, I was sort of waiting for that moment I can understand why they changed it And I guess they don't want this woman to I guess maybe calling a woman a dragon Is kind of an insult I guess Or maybe like a sexist insult So maybe that's why they were like, no she's a fairy She's more angelic She's got horns and everything I don't know I guess she needs someone to talk to That's why the crow became a man I guess I felt that for me Again, it's not his story He's just kind of there He's like, oh I'm the friend, I'm the crow It doesn't really add much to me And Sharto Copley He's not got much dimension to him really I don't think And then his accent's a bit iffy Who's this? The king The king Maybe not his best I was a bit disappointed That accent is like Yeah, all over the show But yeah, Maleficent is the star of the show We were also reading about how there's a little scene Where you have Aurora as a little toddler And the actors that they had for that Who were four or five Wouldn't go near Angelina Jolie in her outfit So in the end they had to use her daughter That little scene where There's only a few minutes Not even that But I mean, she's pretty terrifying Toddlers get a little bit nervous I might not be scared But I'd definitely be intimidated by Angelina Jolie In any form With those horns You can imagine her being pretty scary I thought that was quite cool I quite like the moment as well where she's like Do you know who I am? Do you know what I did to you? Do you know what the story is between me and your dad? And she's like Of course I know who you are, you're my fairy godmother Which is like Well, no But she perceives her that way And that's one of the things that makes her Because she has been watching over her throughout her whole life And she has picked up on that She's magical She's a fairy Makes sense Excellent choice So next up Will be The Old Ways from 2020 So again I've looked at another film From a different part of the world And looking at how they view Witches and witchcraft The Old Ways is a 2020 film And it's about a young reporter Who lived in this Vera Cruz In this jungle area in Mexico On the outskirts And she lived there but her mum was possessed by a demon Or had a horrible medical condition Skeptic Scott Whatever you want to see it as And then she died And she moved away to the city and grew up there She then became a reporter And a drug addict And now she's coming back home To meet her cousin And just kind of find her roots again And investigate some stuff And just do some reporting About the kind of local culture And things and maybe superstitions and stuff She visits a cave Her cousin says Do not fucking go there And she comes out of it And she's been possessed by a demon Now has she been possessed by a demon? Hard to say at the beginning She is chained up in this hut And she's been taken care of By a bruja Which is kind of the Mexican form of the witch Or the name for a witch And she is attempting To exorcise this demon And her son is helping her She's this very old woman half blind And she's basically Torturing her, making her drink this goat milk Like force feeding her goat milk And hurting her Putting needles and pins and stuff in her And the woman just doesn't understand She doesn't get it She's like I don't believe in this stuff This isn't me Well you've forgotten who you are You've forgotten what happened to your mother You've forgotten the old ways You've forgotten our culture Your heritage You're very westernised And you view the world very scientifically And now it's come to haunt you So in this film not only is she fighting An actual demon that's Possessioning her But she's fighting those personal demons she has And that trauma about her mother And what happened there And it's really It's really quite interesting Kind of seeing the Again a different side of that And again these characters in the beginning The Bruja and the son That's assisting are kind of You're looking at them as villains Because you're like I don't believe in this shit I'm just on drugs, I'm fine It's fine, it's just drugs But they're like no no There's something inside you There's an evil inside you It's wanting to get out And then they kind of bar her up There's all this stuff on the walls And they have to try and pinpoint which kind of Demon it is and work out What the problem is and how to get it out of there And what they've got it And then she studies it and starts learning about it as well Going like she starts to Buy into it and believe it But then she's trying to escape as well Trying to get a phone, trying to call her boss So it's kind of A witch film meets Kind of a exorcist film In a way so there's a lot of this Going on but I like how The sceptic of the star becomes More and more kind of Understands more and knows more And kind of appreciates What they're doing.

A highlight from SBF TRIAL Podcast 10/26: Sam Bankman-Fried Will Testify In His Own Criminal Trial Today
"Welcome to the SBF trial, a Coindesk podcast network newsletter bringing you daily insights from inside the courtroom where Sam Bankman -Fried will try to stay out of prison. Follow the Coindesk podcast network to get the audio each morning with content from the Coindesk regulation team and voiced by Wondercraft AI. You've likely already heard the news. Sam Bankman -Fried is going to testify in his own criminal trial, probably later today. But what's he going to say? We really have no idea. He's said so much, or is it so little, already? In the month between FTX's collapse and his arrest in the Bahamas, Sam spun a story for the cameras of the world. In his telling, the crypto exchange's early November meltdown wasn't because it had illegally loaned billions of dollars of customer deposits to his hedge fund Alameda, or maybe it was. But if it was, he sort of didn't know about it. Here's generally what he said. In 2022, the crypto market imploded. Alameda took a hit. It definitely had some FTX customer money, a bunch of which it was allowed to have, and then a whole bunch of money disappeared. Who's to say who knew what? Not him. Not really. I was vaguely aware, Sam Bankman -Fried said during his halting December 1st, 2022 interview with George Stephanopoulos, portions of which have been played during the trial. Few familiar with the crypto industry believed him. I doubt anyone else did either. Nevertheless, two factors were going for Sam at the time. One, he was operating in a low information environment, and two, he wasn't under oath. Both factors are now invalidated and reversed. They work against him as he takes the stand. Let's call his tale to as many normal people as possible. He assumed a unique position of authority as to FTX and its downfall. Sure, there were press reports that hinted at nefarious deals, like Caroline's alleged tell -all to employees of Alameda, but those were all hearsay. Against that, Sam's heady opportunity to be a first -person narrator. Caroline wasn't saying her side directly to the public. He could, so he did. The story he gave to GMA was not convincing. His long pauses bled into hardly artful dodges of difficult questions. Sam admitted he felt absolutely terrible that a lot of people got hurt by the company's implosion, and he wished he took, like, a lot more responsibility for understanding what the details were, what was going on at Alameda, rather than leave it to others like the lawyers. What Sam could not provide in answers, he tried to make up for with solutions. Weeks after resigning from the bankrupt FTX, he told GMA's audience that he was trying to focus on what he could do going forward to be helpful for his failed company. For what it's worth, FTX's new CEO, Enron John Ray III, wanted nothing to do with Sam and ignored his emails and texts. Stephanopoulos pushed and pushed Sam on whether he knew about Alameda robbing FTX's piggy bank, as the press alleged Caroline had said he did. Refusing to take Sam's dodging, the interviewer conjured up a prescient scenario. We'll transcribe it here. Stephanopoulos, if she's in court and you're in court and she's under oath and you're under oath and you're asked, did you know that these funds were being funneled to Alameda? What is your answer? Sam pauses for eight seconds. Sam, I did not know that there was any improper use of customer funds. Over the last three weeks at trial, we've learned that Sam knew about the secret loan arrangement. Not only that he knew, but that he ordered code to be written that allowed it to happen. Not only that he orchestrated it, but that he hid it from his lawyers, that he ignored their pleas to shut off the customer fund valve, that he spent their money on his business, on other businesses, on loan payments, on sponsorships, on apartments and island houses. In the spirit of Stephanopoulos's question, we'll focus on what Caroline said under oath on October 11th. Caroline, he was the one who set up the systems that allowed Alameda to take the money and he was the one who directed us to take customer money to repay our loans. So what's Sam going to say under oath? We really have no idea. The Department of Justice has one last witness, FBI agent Mark Troiano. He'll testify that Bankman Fried was in about 200 different group chats which had auto delete enabled. The DOJ thinks direct examination will take maybe 30 minutes and the defense thinks 10 minutes max. Once that's done, a little past 10 o 'clock a .m. Eastern time, the defense starts its turn and plans to call Crystal Roll, a Bahamas attorney who represented Bankman Fried and was present at a meeting with the country's securities regulator that former FTX executive Gary Wang testified about. There's a little just heard about Roll and the judge has ordered the defense to provide more information. Defense attorney Mark Cohen thinks Rolla will take maybe 30 minutes on direct examination. Joseph Pimbly, the proposed expert witness, will take maybe 20 minutes max on direct examination and possibly around the same again for cross -examination. The defense has a third witness who'd point out there were over a dozen lawyers in the various group chats Bankman Fried was part of, though Cohen said he's hoping for a stipulation with the DOJ to make that testimony unnecessary. The DOJ's Nicholas Rose doesn't think the information is even admissible. For those of you doing the math, all these witnesses may be done by as soon as 1130 a .m. and that brings us to the man of the hour, Sam Bankman Fried himself. As noted above, he has said quite a lot about what he thinks happened with FTX and the defense clearly wants to continue pushing its position that he didn't intend to defraud customers or investors and things just kind of spiraled. For the first time in a while, Bankman Fried will have an opportunity to do just that. Want to follow along?

A highlight from 48 - Week 7 Recap
"Welcome to the UltraFlex football podcast where we have fun with our friends while we talk about football, getting straight to it today. Got lots to talk about. I'm your host Anthony Sutton. With me is Rob Green. Good morning, evening, afternoon, whatever it is for you. And Ryan Wheeler. Howdy everybody. So this week we have our album. First I gotta ask you guys a question though. Alright. I want you to say the first thing that comes to your mind. Alright. What's the opposite of a waffle? A pancake. Gosh damn it. Alright. I guess I lose that one then. I had an argument with my wife. What was the right answer? I don't know. She said the opposite of a waffle is a pancake and I was like that's not the opposite of a waffle. There's no opposite to waffle. Like an anti -waffle would be the opposite of a waffle. But a pancake isn't the opposite. I said what about French toast? And she said no it'd be a pancake. But you guys both said pancake so I'm wrong. French toast? It was second though. It was like pancake and I was like ooh French toast. Oh. Okay. I mean I think of like if I go to IHOP and they're like hey we're out of waffles. I'm like okay I'll take a pancake. Now here's another thing. I'll take French toast. So we have a pancake mix that we use and there's also a waffle recipe on the back of it. So you can make either with the pancake mix. So to me it kind of is the opposite if you think of it that way. That's one or the other. See that's backward logic. That's backwards logic to me. That means that you can make the same thing out of that stuff. Yeah but it's not the same because you have to add, no because you add oil and eggs to make the waffle. Pancake is just the pancake mix. I know. I know but it's alright I digress. I'm wrong apparently but I hope that somebody out there either said French toast or they say there's no way that's the opposite so I'm not alone here. Anyway we have Carrie Underwood's album this week titled Some Hearts. I believe it was 2005. I didn't check honestly. Yeah. My bod on that. My bod. I'm bad on that. Your bod. There's that accent coming out. My bod. So my songs are Wasted, Don't Forget to Remember Me, Some Hearts, Jesus Take the Wheel, and The Night Before. Rob what do you got? Lessons learned before he cheats starts with goodbye. I just can't live a lie. We're young and beautiful. I've got That's Where It Is, Whenever You Remember, I Ain't in Shakota Anymore, and Inside Your Heaven. So we'll work those in and yeah let's get to it. Unfortunately we do have to talk about football. It's a rough week for Bills but let's get to football talk. Real quick I'll get Ryan's take on this is Wednesday evening I guess and the Titans announced that they're gonna start Levis next week or I guess this week. Initial thoughts? I'm excited.

Each episode unveils the incredible ways AI technology is transforming our world for the better. Join host Graham Klass as he speaks with the experts behind the technological advancements that are powering a brighter and more accessible future for everyone. Listen to Technically Speaking, an Intel podcast, on the iHeartRadio app, Apple Podcasts, or Hey, and welcome to the Short Stuff. I'm Josh, and there's Chuck and Jerry's here, and we're all jacked up because Halloween's coming and we've been eating candy for six weeks straight. Short Stuff. And things are getting spoopy in here. Spoopy? Spoopy, it's a word. It means not quite spooky, a lighthearted version of spooky. Is that like your own word? No, it's a real thing. You can look it up and we'll wait. Okay, hold on a second. Yep, your story checks out. It's a real word. All right. Well, let's talk about bedsheet ghosts then because I picked this one out when I was looking for something spoopy and I just, I kind of had a bit of nostalgia for the old school bedsheet ghosts and I was like, oh, where in the world did that come from? Who started doing that? Because it's a thing. You see people still do it as a cut real costume occasionally, whether or not you don't have the money to scrape up for some expensive costume or if you're just lazy. Either way, it's great. And it's also been in a gazillion pieces of pop culture like Beetlejuice and Scooby Doo and Charlie Brown, all kinds of stuff. Our friend Toby produced a movie that it featured in recently, A Ghost Story. I still haven't seen that. I got to see it. It's interesting. It is art house. It's very art house. Like, there's a lengthy scene where Rooney Mara just sits there and eats pie quietly in her kitchen. Like, that's the scene. It's really interesting. But it's cool. It's a cool concept. But the ghost is just wearing a bedsheet the whole time. Yeah, it's iconic. Exactly. I think that's the point. And I never stopped to question that. I think that was a great question that you had in your head. And it's really, I love things where you just stop and think, where did this come from? And there's a definitive answer that makes complete sense. And this happens to be one of those things. Yeah, I love those. So we dug into Salon .com, Tuft & Needle .com, and The Daily Beast. And everyone's story is the same. So it has to be true. But it comes from the fact that back in olden days, and specifically, I mean, we can go back to the time of Jesus, if you'd like to. But specifically, forward a bit to 17th century Britain, when people would wrap their deceased loved ones in white sheets, burial shrouds, to bury them. They used to do that, you know, just routinely back in ancient times. But then as we got a little more modern and coffins came around, if you had money, you could still go with a coffin. But if you didn't, you were still using that linen sheet probably. Yeah, and it's actually come full circle again, because one of the hallmarks of a green burial is using a burial shroud instead of a coffin. That's right. So a burial shroud is associated with dead people. And if a dead person returned from the grave, i .e. a ghost, you would think that they're probably still wearing their burial shroud or the bedsheet that they were buried in. And that, that is how bedsheets became synonymous with ghosts. Yeah, and we could stop there. This could be the shortest short stuff. Yeah, but it gets even more interesting if you ask me. It does, because all these great websites found some pretty cool stories to tie into this. And this is something I never knew. It was so synonymous with spooking people that thieves in London, and dare I say, go to England, greater would wear this stuff sometimes. I read some sites that said they would wear it just to scare people sometimes, and rob them on the street. And I also saw sometimes they would scare them from their home, so they could then just be like, all right, we got the place to ourselves. Let's rob it. Either way, I mean, don't you deserve to be robbed if a ghost scares you? Maybe they were just like, oh God, a robber. And that's really why they were running out, not that they thought it was a ghost. Sure. And he's wearing a sheet, so he must be dangerous. So clearly by this time, sheets and ghosts were fully in the mind of the pop culture, I guess, right? Yeah. The thing is, is at this time, around this time, in the early 1800s, like I think 1805 maybe, there is a very famous case of a person being mistaken for a bedsheet wearing ghost who paid with their life basically for walking around wearing a white outfit and refusing to wear anything but that.
A highlight from BIG RIPPLE XRP UPHOLD PARTNERSHIP! CRYPTO TWILIGHT ZONE WITH BLACKROCK BITCOIN ETF & HOUSE SPEAKER
"Welcome to the Thinking Crypto Podcast, your home for cryptocurrency news and interviews. If you are new here please hit that subscribe button as well as the thumbs up button and leave a comment below. If you're listening on a podcast platform such as Spotify, Apple or Google please leave a 5 star rating and review, it supports the podcast and it doesn't cost you anything. Well folks I want to start off by talking about the price of Bitcoin. After a couple days of parabolic moves by Bitcoin, the price is cooling down right now, the pump is cooling down, which makes sense right? Bitcoin right now at the time of recording is at $33 ,839, Ethereum is at $1 ,781, BNB at $225, XRP at 55 cents, Solana at 30 bucks, Cardano at near 28 cents. So Bitcoin we're waiting for the next move up. Right now Bitcoin is going to cool down, build some support levels before it keeps going higher. Right now it's an overbought zone, the RSI is way overextended. So you expect a cool down here, build some support levels and this is healthy, right? This is market cycles playing out. You can't have a straight lineup that's not sustainable. In fact, having a straight lineup means it's more likely we're going to dump sooner. But if you have strength being built after pumps, right, and you're building the support levels, then breaking through resistance, you are building a stronger foundation for higher prices. So it's important to know these principles so you know how to look at the charts and how to read the price movements and know how to form your strategy with your profit taking and much more or buying the dips and so forth. So right now the market's going to wait to see what Bitcoin is going to do next. Maybe we see a pump again in the next two to three days or maybe in another week, right? We just don't know. But my thoughts are I think sooner than later, we're going to start to see a move upwards as we build support levels here. Now, folks, it was like the Twilight Zone today because there was news of the Bitcoin Spot ETF or Bitcoin Trust IBTC being listed on the DTECC's website, but then it was removed and then some are saying it has been there since August. So it's been ridiculous. People are over speculating trying to find any type of breadcrumb as it relates to the BlackRock Bitcoin ETF. At this point, I'm kind of tired of hearing this and I just want to just look Bitcoin keep pumping. When the ETFs get approved, they get approved. I honestly don't care because I'm not going to be buying the ETF. I'm already positioned to take profits on Bitcoin and all coins because I hold the assets directly. But some people are over speculating sharing this and that and much more. It is so annoying. So just heads up, you know, people are reporting, oh, it's relisted, oh, it was removed. And it's like, oh, Jesus Christ, please stop. There's so much speculation and noise around this, but just heads up on that, guys. At this point, I don't care. But there was also news that Congressman Tom Emmer, who is, of course, the majority whip, you know, the GOP majority whip, he secured a GOP nomination to become the next speaker of the House. And of course, that's very bullish because he's pro crypto. We know he's been calling on Gary Gensler. He famously said on a digital online meeting when everybody was in lockdown that XRP is not a security. So we know where he stands. And unfortunately, he dropped out of the House speaker race because he was not receiving enough votes. And that in itself, you know, from a macro perspective, really sucks because the House got the GOP folks got to get their act together. I mean, this is just so messed up, man. Like pick a speaker of the House. Tom Emmer would have been a great candidate. But once again, a crazy day like the Twilight Zone, just a lot of back and forth and a lot of craziness. In fact, the House Financial Services Committee postponed their two hearings they had set for this week, one with regarding the SEC, the other about digital assets and much more. So it's just a mess right now. They got to figure out the speaker of the House stuff. Now, folks, the big news of the day, though, was Ripple partnering with crypto exchange Uphold. And as you all know, Uphold is a sponsor of this podcast. I've been using Uphold since twenty eighteen. You all know that even during the SEC lawsuit against Ripple, they never delisted XRP. They had the balls and and they had the legal write up to continue with their mission statement. So much respect to them. And that's why I've been using them. That's why I chose them as a sponsor. They're a great platform. They don't lend out crypto from from their users. And they have audits and much more. Well, they partnered with Ripple. Here's the headline. Ripple forges new partnership with Uphold to enhance underlying crypto liquidity infrastructure. The partnership will see Uphold provide Ripple with enhanced crypto liquidity capabilities to underpin and enhance its cross -border payments infrastructure. As you can imagine, on demand liquidity is going to be here, possibly XRP if you're talking about cross -border payments and much more. Very bullish. And it's great to see these two companies who have been very closely related due to XRP together. working And I think Uphold is getting the business here because of the stance they took during that lawsuit. So really great news. Two companies that obviously are pretty great. And I'll try to get an interview with the CEO of Uphold to get more details on this partnership or someone from Ripple's team. And we can learn more about how they're going to be working together. Now today, Paul Grewal, chief legal officer at Coinbase, tweeted out the SEC's opposition to our motion for judgment claims, roving authority over all investments with security and contract in the statutes, performing no limiting function at all. As our reply shows, that's never the law and it's not the law now. By arguing that any purchase which the buyer hopes for an increase in value constitutes an investment contract and therefore a security, the SEC is attempting a radical expansion of its own authority. Only Congress can do that as the major questions doctrine makes clear. The SEC is completely off base here. So if I go buy a baseball card from you guys, because I think it's going to go up in value, that's a security. Or I go buy a Pokemon card from you, what if I buy a digital Pokemon card, right? Or a digital baseball card, that's a security, that's ridiculous, right? It's utterly ridiculous. And the SEC, they need to be put into check here. Congress needs to act, but I'm glad Coinbase is fighting back. And as I said many times, I hope they mop the floor with that scumbag regulator, Gary Gensler. Now, we got some good news coming out here that U .S. senators set in motion bipartisan proof of reserves bill. This is great, folks. As I've been saying, we need guardrails. We need exchanges to be audited. We need them to show the proof of reserves. They're not lending out or gambling their clients' funds, right? Just like I highlighted with Uphold, they never lend out any of their customers' assets and they do audits. This is needed. Centralized exchanges, obviously serve a purpose, right? We want to get to a more decentralized future, but we need the centralized exchanges right now. They need to up their standards. We can't have the crazy bullshit crap that came out of FTX and Celsius. That cannot happen again. Alex Mashinsky and Sam Beck and Freeh need to be put into jail. Maybe they share our jail cell together, but this is great, folks. We need this accountability in this guardrail. So two U .S. senators from opposite sides of the aisle have introduced a bill that they say will establish safeguards against another FTX type collapse. The proof of reserves of other funds act is the brainchild of Senator Thom Tillis and John Hickenlooper. So Thom Tillis is a Republican out of North Carolina. John Hickenlooper is a Democrat out of Colorado who shared a draft of the legislation on Friday. The legislation intends to guard against unethical commingling of customer funds and require monthly proof of reserves report from a neutral third party auditing firm. Folks, I don't care what side of the aisle you're on, I don't care if you've been in crypto forever or you just joined, we can all agree we need this, right? All of these platforms need to be audited. They need to be transparent and show it to their customers. We're audited. Here are your funds. We're not doing anything shady. That needs to happen, folks. And that's going to help take this market to the next level because we can't have another FTX in Celsius and all these other things, folks, it can't happen, right? Or Voyager as well. It's ridiculous what took place last year, but look, you live and you learn and we got to move forward. Now, speaking of scams, Ethereum co -founder Joseph Lubin robbed his earliest employees of value of stock awards that drew them to his blockchain firm, ex -workers allege. So the scandalous news about Joe Lubin continue to come out and things he's done and stolen and lied about. And we know the whole Bill Hinman Ethereum backroom deal, even though I don't put as much on him and Vitalik on Ethereum, folks, I put it more on the SEC because they opened that door to be bribed and all that stuff and to have conflicts of interest. But still, Joe Lubin is a shady dude and I think he needs to be exposed. And we're seeing mainstream media is covering this news. So we'll see what happens. It's a lawsuit that seeks to force Lubin to restore the value to the employees. There've been other accusations over the years as well. So we'll see where this goes. All right, folks, that's the news. Let me know what you think. Leave your thoughts and comments below. Hit the thumbs up button, hit the five star rating on the podcast platforms, and I'll talk to you all later.

A highlight from Bitcoin Rally Not Over | $32,000 Next
"All right. Is the rally over? Is Bitcoin starting to face a new wall or is this the breakthrough that everybody's been looking for? We're going to try to get into all this good stuff for you guys today. My name is Paul Bera. Welcome back in The Tech Path. Before we get started, if you guys have never checked out our Market Sentiment Index, make sure and jump over to PBN. You can just go to Paul Bera Network and find it. It's right there. One of the things we do on the MSI is we break down a whole variety of tokens. You can go into the dashboard. This will, of course, measure sentiment, gives you a full blend of both TradFi sentiment as well as crypto sentiment. We even jump into NFTs and also TA. So we've got a lot of additional content over there that you guys can check out. Make sure and just, when you go to PBN or Paul Bera Network, all you have to do is click right there at the top, Market Sentiment. I'll show you some examples of that here in a bit when we break down Bitcoin. Let's get into it today, though. I want to jump over to the first tweet right here, and this is Peter St. Onge. This is a very interesting statement he made right here, and I shouldn't say him, but inflation in effect is a hidden tax. The money that people have saved is robbed part of purchasing power, which is quietly transferred from the government that issues new money. This was by Thomas Sowell. If you've never listened to Thomas Sowell, just search his name on YouTube and go listen to some of his talks. He's probably, I think, one of the best economists out there in maybe our lifetime. Very astute into understanding money, but more importantly, understanding the cycles that start to happen here. And that's really what we're going to be breaking down today. Is this a cycle for Bitcoin and other digital assets that could be starting to really roar while we're starting to see that turned down in the traditional markets? All right, so I want to go over to this first clip right here. This is the first time Jerome Powell seemed a bit doubtful listening. For the first time, you have Jerome Powell, who has had never been doubtful as to what he did, even though he has been sometimes wrong on expectations of inflation and interest rates, finally said in his Economic Club of New York talk, as well as in the Q &A session, that he did not know what is causing the higher bond yields. He attributes that to term premiums. The term premiums are not measurable. And therefore, essentially, the Fed chairman comes down to saying, I don't know what it is. And when he said that, I said, we are in completely unchartered territory. Things are going to get worse next week because of the fact that the Fed is totally out of control and they don't know what to do next. All right, so this is a very interesting statement. Fed's totally out of control. Don't really understand the course to take next. This tweet kind of breaks it down a bit more. Feels like a mildly risk off day. Stock futures are down. Copper price is down. Ten -year Treasury yields are about to cross the 5 % threshold, a move that once again challenges the idea of debt as a haven in times of weakness. So this has been the kind of the talking point that's been dashed around Wall Street over the past two to three weeks. And a lot of people have looked at this and said, OK, these are the indicators. These are some of the things that could really start to take the market into a very interesting position, much like what the clip we just played. Kind of no man's territory. I want to go to this next clip because it'll start breaking down the things I think that will help you guys get a bigger understand of when QE might take place. Listen in. Whether it be a huge bank failure, whether it should be pension funds losing a lot of money, commercial real estate suddenly worsening or a CLO, commercial loan market and levered obligations having difficulty, somewhere things are going to break and rather than expecting three to six months, I'm going to say within the next four or five weeks. Just look at last March to give yourself an indication. We had three small regional banks which failed and immediately quantitative tightening ended and quantitative easing was put in place. We took the fed assets back to November of 2022. We set it back by five months. What I'm saying is if that incident could do that, anything like a bigger crash taking place in the next two to three months is going to completely reverse monetary policy in terms of both interest rates and quantitative tightening. And yes, within the time period that you mentioned, it's clearly when I think it will happen 2024 is going to be a year of lower interest rates and clearly a much more easier fed than we have seen so far. All right. So with him making that statement, the question will be when those interest rates actually get started in terms of a pivot. And I look at these statements here, especially with some of these economists that are looking at this from more of a global perspective. And then you look at this current rally that is currently underway right now. Look at Bitcoin. This is a good example of just the sentiment data coming up here from around the 13th. And all of a sudden, you know, Bitcoin is moving. And it's very interesting because now we've got amplification and top line sentiment kind of moving in unison where we were seeing a little bit of a separation here over the past 30 days with Bitcoin in general, meaning it was kind of flat. So with this being the case and to his point, the analyst's point is are we maybe just three, four or five weeks out from a real problem in the market, whether it is new data on the real estate industry or some of those things that could really be those things that have been lagging for a little bit of time here and start to truly break, which would definitely cause the Fed to cause a bit of a, I think, an about face. Still don't know if that's going to happen. I want to play a clip here by Raoul Pal on his consideration of what a recession might look like. Listen in. I just wasn't that bearish and the market had priced it in last year, which was the big thing to me. It's like, you know, when ETH bottomed in June, Bitcoin, the rest of the space bottomed in October, that was like, it's all priced in. We've got it all in. But you said you think we will have a small recession, as in it's still on the horizon. Yeah, it doesn't matter because the markets are looking forwards. So it doesn't matter. Everyone's like, I want my recession. I want my 50 % sell off in the S &P. You're not going to get it. You had the mild recession sell off last year. That's what we're going to get. All right. So two points there from those two clips, one, catastrophe is about to happen, catastrophe. And then Raoul's point, which is this is going to be a little bit softer. But yet at the same time, remember, these assets start to move first. And this is something we've talked about here on the show quite a bit, is that these early market moves are when we're starting to see the tail end of other downstream. Now, when we see the tail end, there's that last little push that we've seen so many times in these cycles before. The economists still believe that that's going to happen with traditional markets. Raoul is counting on the other side that maybe that liquidity has already exited. And we've already seen that. The question will be, is that the limit of liquidity in the market? Or will there be one last push which could push people into gold and Bitcoin, in which obviously we've seen both gold and Bitcoin flying over the last 30 days. So it's a very interesting time. But when you think about crypto outperforming, because in reality, if you look back at the first of the year to where we are right now, I mean, come on, guys, these risk assets have been outperforming everything on the market. Listen to this clip. Why crypto outperforms is really simple. It's got a faster adoption curve. It's a technological adoption story. Everything else is noise. It's technology plus debasement. NASDAQ is the second best performing asset. Why? Technology plus debasement. People who invest in their 401k and the S &P passive index, they never get ahead. Because property goes up, and gold goes up, and all of the assets go up the same amount. So you're just not making gains. NASDAQ and crypto have been the only two assets that do it. So an interesting point there to his issue is when you look at even the S &P, outside of the Magnificent Seven, has been down for the year. You put those in, and those seven stocks alone in the tech sector, mostly tech, have been able to salvage what's happened on traditional markets. And I would agree with Raul in the sense that innovation and technology, because this is really a tech move, and we talked about this, Web3 is about to shift everything. We're going to see digital assets truly come to light in the United States under some new regulatory guidelines. So all of this is good. Now the other things you have to look at is where is this pump coming from? If the market is really down, why are we starting to see Bitcoin moving along with some of these other key assets? Here's a post by Koby Easey talking about the events in China. A little bit happening right now. Obviously we know about Evergrande, largest tax cuts since 2008. That's another big one. Let me kind of zoom in on that for you guys. Interest rates now lowered on $6 trillion of mortgages. That's another major. Could you imagine that if you had an arm and you start to see lowering interest rates right now in the market we have right now with 8 % interest rates? Unexpected rate cuts, most since 2020, and then bank run begins at Bank of Shenzhou. And then, of course, bank cut deposit rates for the third time this year. Government plans another new stimulus package. This is more liquidity going into the market. So could that be the factor in Asia that is starting to push Bitcoin into another local high, possibly beating the one that we had back in July? So there's a lot happening globally, especially when you think about what's happening just from a macro standpoint in Israel, Ukraine, etc. All of this is coming to a head, and it's winter. Energy prices are going to rise. What is going to happen here in the next step? Here was another. This was from Eric Balcumas talking about the ETF front. BlackRock is stating their recent spot ETF amendment that they are ceding the ETF in October. So that tells me something. Don't want to read too much into that, but if this new info is not original filing, so noteworthy, especially with BlackRock, this is a good one because this tells me they're Remember, we've talked about this with the ETFs in the past couple of weeks, and that is first mover may not necessarily win this one because there's going to be so many available. It's going to be the best marketer. So ceding it is a very interesting strategy, I think, that BlackRock is taking. Here was John Deaton kind of going in on this in reference to the ICC. Couple points here. They've capitulated on the spot Bitcoin ETF approval before the end of the year, or certainly before the end of the first quarter. Or the SEC is gathering more information during these discussions to come up with a different reason for denying it. I don't know. He's not putting it number two past Gensler because Gensler just has such a bur in the saddle. But I think with other things happening in the house with possibly a new speaker and also all the pressures that we're seeing globally and what we're seeing in the markets right now, I think Gensler may have seen his last denial. We'll see how it goes. I want to play another clip here of Hester Pierce. This is also going to kind of shake you a little bit. Listen, maybe the SEC is now more open to approving one of these types of funds. Is it? I can't I can't say whether or not the commission is is ready to approve a Bitcoin exchange traded product. I've been thinking we should approve one for the last five years so that the logic for why we haven't has always mystified me. I can't guess as to my colleagues approach to this topic. You spend time with them. You talk to them. Do you see any shift in terms of that type of thinking, just even generally speaking? I really can't speak to what we're going to do on the Bitcoin exchange traded products. I can say that generally the agency has not been very good when it comes to anything related to Bitcoin or other crypto assets. I guess the question is, should the public take anything away from the fact that a black rock or a fidelity is applying for these things, that that somehow is validating this space in a way that perhaps maybe some of the smaller firms that had applied for such types of funds earlier did not. People have to be careful about trying to read the tea leaves of what agencies are doing. And I'm not going to I'm not going to contribute to that. I'm just going to say that, you know, obviously we're seeing more and more interest from firms in these products. And and I hear a lot of interest from investors in these kinds of products as well.
A highlight from Privileged To Teach
"Let us hear then God's word from Romans 2 beginning in verse 17. Indeed you are called a Jew and rest on the law and make your boast in God and know his will and approve the things that are excellent being instructed out of the law and are confident that you yourself are a guide to the blind, a light to those who are in darkness, an instructor of the foolish, a teacher of babes, having the form of knowledge and truth in the law. You therefore who teach another do you not teach yourself. You who preach that a man should not steal do you steal. You who say do not commit adultery do you commit adultery. You who abhor idols do you rob temples. You who make your boast in the law do you dishonor God through breaking the law. For the name of God is blasphemed among the gentiles because of you as it is written. Circumcision. For circumcision is indeed profitable if you keep the law but if you're a break of the law your circumcision has become uncircumcision. Therefore if an uncircumcised man keeps the righteous requirements of the law will not his uncircumcision be counted as circumcision and will not the physically uncircumcised if he fulfills the law judge you who even with your written code and circumcision are transgressor nor is circumcision that which is outward in the flesh but he is a jew who is one inwardly and circumcision is that of the heart in the spirit not in the letter whose praise is not from men but from God. The grass withers the flower fades but the word of our God endures forever. Amen. Amen. Well as we begin here today some of us are teachers that is our profession or it has been at some point in time or possibly will be for us and yet all of us teach in some capacity. As parents obviously we teach our children or even grandchildren and this is kind of a natural thing isn't it? We teach one another. God has gifted us in different ways and there are certain things certain gifts and abilities that we have that make us more knowledgeable and better in some areas than somebody else and it's natural for us to do this. Now with this briefly in mind we come here now to these next couple verses in Romans 2 and as I did last time I want to do so again here today and that is let's focus on what Paul is saying here in these few verses and kind of leave the broader contextual point to the side to the background and we'll return to what he is driving at Lord willing next time but since I'm doing that let me remind us of the broader context. Since chapter 1 verse 18 Paul has explained how all of us are sinners and worthy of judgment and though it is true chapter 1 does speak specifically about the Gentile those words of Paul also apply to the Jew and even to us because all of us suppress the truth about God in some way or another even as believers all of us have idols that we hold on to and so God therefore hands us over to various sexual and social sins as a consequence for our sin against him.
A highlight from The Disruptive Entrepreneur - risk something
"In this episode, I speak to the disruptive entrepreneur, Rob Moore. Rob is a millionaire entrepreneur, serial podcaster, author, and philanthropist. In this fascinating and inspiring conversation, we talk about how Rob had shifted his mindset towards entrepreneurism. He emphasizes the importance of taking risks, overcoming self -doubt, and not worrying about others' people's opinions in order to achieve greatness. Rob began his own entrepreneurial journey, starting with £50 ,000 worth of debt. And now he has a successful portfolio and multiple businesses. Listen up to discover how that became possible. I create clear thinking and decisive leaders who can amplify their influence. Contact me to find out how I can help you or your organization. And today our guest is Rob Moore. How are you doing, Rob? Good, Judith. All good. Excellent, Rob. What's your favorite book? Of all time ever. Yeah, why not? Okay, well actually, I just did a TikTok today called Four Books That Made Me a Millionaire. Wow. And it's hard to pick. But I'm probably going to have to take this one. Think and Grow Rich. Wow, an oldie but a goodie. Yeah, probably because it was like the paradigm shifter for me. You know, obviously, now, you know, 70 % of it, you know, I know what I am doing. But back then it was a real mind -opener. The concept of your network is your net worth and the concept of a visual mastermind boardroom in your mind of all the millionaires and billionaires around the world who you have access to through your own mind. Yeah, it was powerful. Wow, I didn't know you said that last bit. I should read the book. Considering it's nearly 100 years old, it's quite a modern visualization technique. But instead of just incanting, like closing your eyes, I mean, most nights I have done this for 17 years ago to bed and I close my eyes and I go wealth, success, health, strength, happiness, confidence, non -judgment, abundance, love and gratitude. And sort of mantras and incantations might be level one, but actually visualizing in your mind a boardroom and all the people there that are your idols that are where you want to be and imagining it in detail and asking them questions and having them come up with the answers even though they're coming through your own mind. Yeah, it's quite powerful. I mean, the brain is crazy, isn't it, really, in the stuff that we can do. And I think it's because we don't activate the subconscious enough to actually really utilize our brain properly. Yeah, I mean, I'm not a neuroscientist, but for sure, if, like Judith, and Matt, if you're in the room interviewing me and you took a knife and you sliced a gash in my arm, within six weeks, without me even thinking about it, my body would have repaired that. And, you know, we watch sometimes these science fiction films where you cut off an alien's arm and it grows back. Well, essentially, we can almost do that. So, we're not as alien as we think we are. So, if the brain can do that subconsciously, why are there not other things that it can do? We just have to learn how to activate it. I remember watching, this was probably, again, 20 years ago, where a lady could self -anesthetize and she was actually having a brain surgery and she was awake and she was just anesthetizing herself and I'm scared of needles. I wouldn't do that. But, yeah, I think, you know, I really believe the law of attraction works. It's just that people say it doesn't work because they haven't got what they want. It's just that the law of attraction is working perfectly. It's just they don't know how to use their mind to attract and be what they are rather than what they want. That makes a lot of sense. Rob, tell us a bit more about you. Well, I am just about still nearer to 40 than 50, just about. So, I'm 44 and I've been an entrepreneur for pretty much two decades now and I started in property, like I said, nearly 20 years ago and now I have 340 -ish rental units in my portfolio and we have 1350 tenants in our management company. I'm an author of, I think it's now 18 books, I've just finished 19th and I'm halfway through number 20 and I specialise in business and money and entrepreneurship. I have a podcast called Disruptors which were nearly 1 ,000 episodes now and, yeah, that's been what, nearly 8 years doing that show? So, really, I don't really have much of a life, Judith, outside of business and entrepreneurship. I try and stay healthy. I want to live long but I want to live good long, i .e. there's no point being 95 but be comatose for the last 20 years. So, I do try and stay healthy with ice baths and breathing techniques and lots of walking and exercise and trying to manage stress and I don't really, you know, I was going to say I don't really have any advice as I do but I'm married to her so that's okay but other than that I don't really have any vices so you know, because I remember learning in my early days of business that compounding is the 8th wonder of the world and the longer you're doing something, the longer that, you know, the more likely you are to be very successful at it so, you know, at my age now where I may be halfway through my life, I want to make sure that I'm living long so I can prosper and leverage the law of compounding.

At least for me, because even as a kid, I like to make stuff I was able to draw and arts and craft, lanyards kind of shit. Everything I did, I had something to show for. Even when I was playing video games, if I beat the game, I would then make a drawing of the game as a certificate for myself. Like, hey, I did this thing. So for me, having like some kind of artifact of your accomplishments or things that you do, I didn't really important to me. So the retail kind of thing, having a product that we then get to design and then package and someone, I can point to it on a shelf, and yeah, you know, me and my team did that. That's always been really important to me to do more stuff like that. But even late with websites. Yeah, we made that thing. But the physical thing is actually really interesting too. So even with the music that I put out, I put that on vinyl, so I have a record, like literally a record of it. And this is a piece I can look back on. Yeah. That's pretty dope. I want to definitely talk more about your music. We'll get to that kind of I think later in the interview, but let's kind of switch gears and talk about your origin story. You mentioned or you've alluded to that you're kind of from in and around the Bay Area. Is that right? Yeah, so I grew up in Sunnyvale, California. That's like in the south Bay Area of the Bay Area. And that was really cool being out there. Again, it was a cool melting pot. Being around all these different people, even the tech and stuff out there, I really would say, I am a product of Sunnyvale, really into video games..

And i said to him and this again i don't maybe i'm starting this by blowing smoke jason's ass but i am ready at the risk of sounding. Yes is is is on shard from the valley up and ready right now go ahead. I will say that. There's a generation of comedic actors or at least a acting style that is very modeled after a bateman kind of look on life. That stated I i would defer say it's modeled after your your co owner ryan reynolds. He would say the same about you and he did say the same about which is interesting. But i but i do notice. Sometimes myself if. I'm watching myself in the editing room. I'm like oh. I'm trying to do what jason bateman does. But i'm not doing it as well. And then and then so. I told jason about this and he was like oh. That sounds good. I'd like to see that. So i i. I clicked out some of it and i sent it to them and i said this is basically trying to do. I only recognized this. In retrospect and he wrote back things you know about his about your performance like this. He said this doesn't seem like me because of course it wouldn't him but he said it is really funny now but yet still very funny and by the way watch. Watch that right away. He watched that one real quick time. The clip was thirty. Five seconds long and the response was thirty. eight seconds. of course was that sounds. That sounds nevertheless. I was i was.

It wasn't even that that sounds like something that's that move is called a bateman in showbiz. But what i did was Because since we've gotten to know each other and we had a little bit of contact before rob wrote a pilot that i thought was hilarious Many many years ago that was kind of came my way. At a certain point we there was a discussion about. Maybe i really wanted to get what happened. And maybe they ultimately didn't want me or something like that but passed passed. It was a soft pass. But here's the deal. I always thought it was really funny and it was. Oh and i thought it was. When i read that script. That's when i became a fan of yours. I'm can't wait for that question once. We started to get into each other and more recently than i did. Watch it not. Because i wanted to be but i also i was like i want to see what your deal is about that. Well look i.

How long ago was that and what would do well. The the reason. I know that you it was not memorable for you Because this was very early on in in sons run there was no chance he would have ever known who i was just introduced myself and said i was a big fan of yours. You knew that he didn't know you were because he tossed his keys before. Come back i recognize. I said in the waiting room. I said i recognize that. This is wholly inappropriate We were.

I have been cured. I don't know if you continue to go to dr. Just but i do not have to go anymore now. Is this a kinda doctor where you lay on your back.

I'm going to push down your arm and if your arm gives a lot of resistance that means you have a bad reaction to this type of herb guys. Been one of those. What noman nobody has.

Having known you coming on and so you grew up catholic. I grew up. Catholic means one of us has to be gay. That's me and your mom is now okay. Lesbian she's out. I wanna talk about that. Because i think that's fascinating being a child growing up like did what was the. How old were you when she came out. Did you suspect when you were younger. That mom could lift heavier things than dad. Maybe and you now you can both off. Yes she does play golf which is based both her both both of my mother so they've been to. My mother left my father for her current partner. Who's been my other mother For the last thirty five years. I think they met wow already seven years ago. Yeah wow while they're they're still wonderfully happy and in fact even stranger of my father and his current wife are very great friends with them and they are on vacation together.

What was your experience like with your peers at school. Or did they know and all that. Kind of stuff yeah. No the interesting thing is that they never actually officially came out us. It was a it was a much different time. This is the phil south philadelphia in the early to mid nineteen eighty s and they had three kids and a very staunch irish catholic neighborhood right so it was a really difficult time for them but for us. I mean. Look any divorce Is going to be difficult on the kids. But i think it was a testament to both my father who was in his late twenty s at the time which is incredible and and both of my mothers who handled it with such dignity and grace and we never really felt any acrimony or animosity between them it was all like in support of us did recognize that mom had a roommate Which isn't weird at first. Because she's in her late twenties early thirties which of course at the time. When you're a kid. They seem like they're fifty. Right dies some family members that still call scott my roommate. Yes so mom. Yeah so mom. And mary Who's my mother. My mom's name is mary o. And this is going great roommates for for years years and years and years and nobody was really sitting down and having a conversation with us but as time went on it was becoming quite evident when we would ask at twelve thirteen years old. We recognize that your roommates but why do you sleep in the same bed for worm. Yeah for warmth is cold to save energy. it's not always sunny. South fellas called.

"To the nineteen fifties. Yeah well i mean you know. It's it's amazing thing that we think that you know. Technology is has You know at the end of the day human nature sort of over takes all of that right and we're all human and we all. Have you know the character traits of every aspect of the the rainbow of emotions and feelings and and you know sadly most of the time. We are governed by emotions and not necessarily relational thinking but basically ties us into the fact. That music is a very emotional Medium of communication and expression and it can make your best moments in your life that much more remarkable and and the toughest moments of your life that much more bearable right. So as i said you know music really is that the universal language and one of the things that i think technology has afforded. The singular artist is the ability to reach a broader audience instantaneously or at least attempt to do it from the comfort of wherever they are Living wherever you know. They're at right whether it be their phone or laptop or whatever and you know i mean. Here's the reality. I was working on a project with my girlfriend. And she literally was editing the entire project on her phone so that it would I mean because the the simple fact is we will Or at least you know ninety five to ninety eight percent of all people that will view any kind of content will be on a hand held device right so we have to literally edit and modify anything any content to fit. You know this three by a four or five depending on the size of your your phone. screen right and it literally you know and i'm talking. You know every aspect of content right audio obviously slightly different but with youtube and the fact that it's so Accessible and you can literally will. Great example christine. Her instagram name is girl on a phone. And she she literally she Has made a point of filming. Not only she actually filmed the video that you saw pretty messed. That was on her phone right and she edited on our phone. She filmed it on her phone. And it's it's sort of An a testament to the fact that you know the amount of of money and technology that's been invested in our everyday hand held devices is Is massive like it's it's immense and started off as as an example of what can be done with our hell a hand held devices and very. Interestingly it's what brought shade to rob yeah go eight lead. Because that's what we're gonna talk about masks pretty mess is that guy sat her in the video. That's christine and the video. Yes she's beautiful. She's very pretty. I i absolutely loves chuck. Thank you. And that's that's the reason why i wrote that song a few years ago and i probably right at least if i had to to Calculate i'd say at least five songs a month. So what does that come to. Maybe i don't know fifty songs a year a little over fifty songs a year and i'd written that song a few years ago. I played it to to chris Actually we're at this friend of mine. Took it down in niagara falls. Start of in the mid of the break from the lockdown and we were at this bar and they had It was an open. Mike and This fellow called me to go play a song. And so i played the song and she She just encouraged me. It became one of her favorite songs of the songs that i've played for that i've written and she just kept urging me. She said you know rob that. That's a really good song. I love it. I'd like to I think you should try to promote it. And i because of the fact that i i'm just you know what i do for a living as i write for for other artists and produce the other artists. I never really I've never actually produced a video for myself and soc her insistence and direction and and Expert i and everything else. I did that song and look who You know it clearly it it went out to the world and we're actually thinking of of Putting it on spotify and a couple other platforms about it caught your eye. And that's why we're having this conversation today. So there you go. You never know the life trajectory of a song now and then when i talk to relied started looking at backward i go oh my word but like i was blown away by your success. And what you've done for the music industry really added a lot to the canadian music industry cuando lot but what stood out. After i read your background i love. The track was cousteau. Yeah you know. What again. What i what i traditionally do. When i write a song is that. I'll do an acoustic demo of the song. And then that's what. I often present to my other artists. In as a matter of fact. I haven't artist right now. That wants to do a Their own rendition of the song. But this was the first time that then it was on christine's Insistence that i actually did went a little further than just an acoustic mo of of Of one of the songs that i wrote and Yeah but it was it was.

"I'm telling ya again. You know like just there. There's so much talent percolating around these days it's it's it's an exciting time to be In the industry definitely sounds like you're doing a lot for the it musical entity again. La canadian music industry. And like if you've done your entire career Rob your company rob laidlaw music. You do the production yells to do marketing distribution although we talked about your cobras. Songwriting and our spell can talk about those areas. Yeah well i actually am not hands on in the the pr department as it were. But i have personal and professional contacts that are deep within the industry so no matter what the artists needs are i have a pipeline and the personal and professional contacts to direct the people in or the artists in in whatever capacity they need whether it be web development whether it be I do actually high. I am a partner in a independent publishing company that has just Formed in the last Few months and one of my partners is eighteen. O'brien who Who for the last eleven years worked for e one publishing which is one of the biggest independent publishing companies on the planet. President is Chris taylor and she also worked for bmg publishing in carlin america in over her career and we Have just partnered. So i mean. One of the biggest revenue streams for artists as songwriters is publishing. That is the revenue streams from that. You know whether it be Licenses in films. Tv ads is immense. Yeah so over the course of my career. I've had the good fortune of Co writing jingles and movie soundtracks and things like that and It's been a great source of income Over the course of my career not just Producing and co writing for individual artists but on a corporate level as well and that's another thing too that's super important for any artist that That is looking to get into the industry. Today is just really being open to the opportunities that are available to you from a perspective of selling your songs to You know. I mean a great example Feist about Fifteen years ago she Had that tune you know one two three four know and it end up being an apple iphone commercial and that literally launched her career bare naked ladies wrote the theme for the big bang theory Right that tv show another band that did extremely well with f. theme was The the rembrandts who wrote The theme for the french show right. I'll be there for you right and so being open to those opportunities as they present themselves and again you know just Realizing that the people that compose for these you know these shows in these commercials that we hear all the time are just people like you. And i right. It's the song started with a basic idea and that it was recorded by someone like me and produce you know exposed to the world and you never know the life or the trajectory of a song. Once you record it i mean. You look at Any of the beatles songs. Those songs will will live on for generations. You look at someone like you know. Johann sebastian bach. And you know. I mean these are songs that were written hundreds of years ago but are still relevant and will live on forever. So that's one thing that is so truly impactful and you know music really is the universal language like it transcends age race impacts all of us in a different way right like no two people perceive or experience A song the same way. I'm glad you brought that up at the universality of it because the one thing about your company is you deal with on a global basis. Not just stick to cam. I wanted to make sure you talked about that. Yeah i mean ultimately. We're all kind of in that forum at this point in the day because You know we all have access to instantaneous. Connectivity social media and the fact that you know youtube and tiktok and all of these platforms have given us a literally. Everybody voice At times it seems a little. You know littered with with a lot of arctic surfing videos. But you know the reality of it is You know ten fifteen years ago. Youtube was essentially cute. Cat videos right. I mean now. Youtube is like the gutenberg press of one hundred years ago right like you literally can and it will cycle into being a form of of higher education moving forward. And i think specifically we've found that we've been Forced to Virtually study and and and communicate online. And you know. I mean essentially we all have the capacity to interact and communicate universally and that has been you know that that's a real positive for the independent music creator. Because we're no longer reliant necessarily on the traditional model of the record company which pretty much govern the first four decades of of the record industry. Right after calls it came about it's been exponential Sort of A parting of the ways more the artists cisco direct to the fans like they're on social media. They're doing live. they're getting fans drafting. A it has changed at all almost like it's gone backwards to.

Be told i mean i've been producing and writing From the age of fifteen right so yeah. It's it's sorta jogs my memory to think about but the like my very first demo that i ever produced Was you know literally Forty years ago. I'm fifty six today so When i was fifteen no sorry not today. I mean just generally today. Yeah no. My birthday was supreme. No no no yeah. Yeah yeah you know. I take riddick which is very successful. One thing i was interested in it sounds like a really silly question. But what is the go ban. Sorry what had never heard that. An i saw it on your website. that you're open for some of the go and i actually did it on a google. Andre and i couldn't find anything is i don't know maybe Voices the eighties or something. It says Unwrap site open for some of the goat goat bands around the world such as robert plant deep purple. Billy idol whitesnake techs foreigner. Yeah you know voices the eighties. Yeah that's what. i thought. It was like saturday the tribute and that that was that was. Actually what led me to work with my green. Oh trim loverboy In two thousand and four. I an opportunity to I was hired to be a musical director at a Club in downtown toronto and The of the club wanted to do a retro eighties night. And because i was sort of you know Eighties guy and new You know. I've worked with a lot of the eighties bands over the years. He asked me if If we could try to put together a Of concert series. Where i would. I'd have my backing band and we would hire the singer from whatever band we you know we were you know. I started off with him But i can't even remember who the second Might actually been mark Homes actually and what we would do is we would sell it as a best of of Forty five minutes set of the hits from platinum blonde. The hits from honeymoon suite the hits from kim mitchell and we pack and it ended ended up being a very successful concert series and when i I was actually doing a alannah. Myles one night and mike reno happened to be in town doing promo for a show. He was doing and he came to the to the show and it was a sold out. Show he actually got up and sang a duet with alannah and After that the the set he just approached me said rob. I'd really like to do one of these You know it was a gas and so I hired him to do one. And then once. I developed a a sort of poor with mike. He literally opened up his Rolodex which is an old phrase to me. In terms of all of the singers that he'd worked with over the years a singer from survivor. The singer from journey the singer from stakes singer from Bad company all these bands that he had worked with over the years and he had done. he had packaged. Something in the nineties called voices a classic rock and it had been very successful so with his endorsement He gave me their you know their numbers their emails. Their management numbers phone numbers and i would just literally call them and and pitch them on this concept and once mike had sort of given me. The validation started bringing up the american singer. So i went through a lot of the canadian singers. And then i started doing The concert series with the american singers so that was what that was talking about. The answer rob laidlaw music on new music production. You're working with a taylor. Landry right now and you co wrote and produced to attract feeling lok yup Well that was a song called feeling. Low I was guess. I met taylor. Not very long ago actually and was set to task for producing I mean in this day and age. We essentially you you. It's not you don't just record tracks the ideas. You're recording singles. Now right in the age of spotify and you know the the i tunes and all that stuff were were It sort of single based mentality. Yes go yeah so i often When i when. I'm approached by artists and i've got i've got about half a dozen right now that i'm working with i. I often encourage them to. I mean if they're gonna invest any amount of money In their Recording career to To you know do at least three singles because in the event that You know one single gets traction Invariably you want to be able to turn around instantaneously and release another single to gain momentum and that's that's sort of the The optimum scenario outcome and in. I i've found in in almost every case. Interestingly in cova people Have this attitude of you know this it. Sort of now or never. This is something they've always wanted to do. It say it's a bucket lists Scenario whether it be writing singing a record or or trying to call right There seems to be a you know a sense of urgency In the last twelve months for sure. And there's no sign of that Slowing down as far as i can tell definitely shift well and there's a shift and i mean you know how we perceive the live arena right now. has has shifted irreducible. It's it's it's completely. It's just. It's ground to a halt right so The the recording and development stage of being an artist seems to be all time high right like everyone is As i say they're really feeling. And you're thinking that now's the time to do You know this creative You know for lack of a better term dream because you know the very small percentage of of the populace that can forge a creative endeavor and and actually make a career and or a living from it. I mean it's just it's sort of a statistical facts right. I do agree with you because of the reasons as my blog went on air. Because i had such a backlog of reviews for indie music after covert head it was unreal and i decided to this this way a i do agree with you. as we're gonna take that track for a about now and come back and talk more about Broadly officer ala's confess.

It appears to me that of course when you go into any game you want to win the game but you're looking for more of a trend overall thing along with the winds correct. Yep yep i think that's what. We had focused last year in any side near the end of last season with the with the structure and the way they were able to win games. They relied heavily on on goaltending always structure in place And offense of a volume a shooting. And i think we've continued to that but again i think a little bit more.

There's opportunity to write a second book. Rob you always so yes. There's a as far as the ease. By which the information flowed. Because i've been doing what i do for so long and i don't mean to sound as though i don't listen to my clients certainly i do but i'm grateful that i've gotten to a point in my career. I can almost if you remember the old character radar o'reilly on the television show mash. Yes where he can anticipate with. Colonel potter was going to say. I mean i can anticipate issues or questions of my clients are facing. I still will listen because every one of them has a slight You know there's there's something that makes it very unique. There's some wants to what they're sharing with me. But anyway because i've gotten to that point in my career where i can almost anticipate The information as i wanted to share it came quite quickly to me and so it was written quite quite fast Once i finally found the time and the energy to sit down and get it done. Thank you for sharing. Because i know that there are a lot of a sparring bogle. Is that you know struggle through this process. So it's it's wonderful to have people on the show who actually walked the path before them. Now i know something else very exciting happening for you in terms. If you monster close tell us a little bit about yes. Well you know to answer the answer. The earlier question is what do you do when you can't share everything in the book. Well that's one of the one of the conclusions. I came to is that i'm going to give people most of my thinking in the book. But there's there's things in between the lines that i wish i could explain further or that. I could alert them to so that they don't misinterpret misunderstand and and miss apply some of the ideas. I'm sharing the book. And that's when the idea of the master class came about. We decided as a staff that we need to give readers who are really serious about becoming the salesperson people love give them a chance to go deeper into the content and allow me to be their personal coach as they're working through that process and and to kind of give them a little bit of a heads up as to what's around the corner or what's what's beyond the fog if they're in a situation right now in their career or in their occupation as a salesperson where they don't quite know how to handle the situation where they're anticipating a huge objection or they don't have to call on a certain individual that they could make a big difference for them in their business so those kind of personalized questions are all handled in the masterclass. Yes that's one very excited. Try to keep myself in control thinking to myself. Get my hands on this wonderful book for a start but more than that when people want to reach out to you and see if they're good fit for you where do they go. And what is the process and also lincoln. Obviously they can find upon amazon but can they get it. Through game phase directly will will right now. Amazon is the best way however i would encourage them to go to a dedicated website.
