"That Rodney Dangerfield would get some respect from his first movie. 40 years later, we'll check that after traffic and weather at 11 22 and Kyrie Moses, I'm going to make a confession. I did not. Listen this morning. And I was coming into work. And I crossed Hello it men. And I got hit by not good down in construction. Tell people about that, please. Yeah, and it's typically the eastbound side. Like you said this weekend. It is the westbound side that is closed from university up to the Vine Expressway. So that is really backing things up, and it's catching people off guard like it did David because usually it is the eastbound side that has shut down, but that is not the case. This weekend's over heading eastbound Really not seeing any major delays right now, but slow heading towards the Conshohocken curve. But that is about it by an expressway. A bit sluggish from brought out to the Scougall on the westbound side. 95 is okay, but a serious problem Now in the Northeast extension, this is South bound is a serious accident about three miles north of the Quakertown. Exiting. You've got about five miles of heavy traffic. It's a crash in the left lane, and it's basically a parking lot right now South on the Northeast extension, So you want to stick with 309 heading south of Allentown. You do not want to sit in that delay for 22 West That's a bit slow near Limerick due to construction and no issues right now in any of your area bridges but in New Jersey, were still jammed up south on the 42 Freeway from 55 down to the approach of ex today for Blackwood, Clement in road and earlier crash there, we're hearing it's out. Away. But again, we're still seeing a massive backup even slow on the north bound side as people take a look at what's going on there and accept eight in less than 10 minutes and Kyrie Moses in the K y w 24 hour traffic center take checked on NBC 11th alert weather for the rest of the weekend. Skies are going to continue to clear up his. We go through the afternoon and As.

"Have a surface as well. So I have a stylus and both my and my phone and I draw storyboards for example for my editor for Takata and I also sketch out a lot of ideas for For crowd I with a digital pen. Either on my surface or on my note no ten and it's You know just to get like if I have an idea all my God. We have to put this button here or we have to re size that or like. What if what if you collected feedback in this way or that way I can just I realize that you can just take out the The pen and then start drawing on the screen and I don't have to find an APP to put it in whatever just safe and I get back to it whenever any two. So are you one of those people that prefers written notes to oneself over typing on a virtual keyboard? No no no I don't I never right. I content right. I have like ten years. I'm just sketching things out. So basically I'm sketching out fake screen specifically lines and yeah exactly. I'm sure it's great to be able to like say that your your crowd APP. Take a screen shot and then whip the pen out and actually redraw top of that screen. Shot charges that you see in your mind. That's gotta be really useful. That is yes very much and I I I mean I really liked that. The no ten has screen recording built in. I find it very weird. That's one thing I would like to add. Just like a built built in screen recording feature like I think that's on the docket if mistaken it's in the current developer previews on it works pretty good. You'll like it okay. Yeah so I I liked it very much because whenever we work without developers. I mean. It's whatever you give feedback. It's either in the form of screen shots videos and it's super useful to be able to draw on top two inches do it natively and abide away. F- If I'm allowed to plug one more we're looking for one more developer. So if you're if you're working with a reactive native or No Jess then Write us at jobs at crowd that come we want we want your CV with two RS. Cress correct jobs as always want to make sure that's in there and I love the. I love the note ten. I have to say the smaller one. I still use it from time to time. It's just a beautifully made phone. It's perfect size. I just think a other than the fact that the the power buttons on the left side I think Samson nailed it. I want to ask about the. Lg Velvet because that phone has been teased in teased and then LG released unveiled at first South Korea. earlier this week and this is a brand new design for. Lg really kind of goes back to a more one. Hand friendly teardrop kind of Influence is quote inspired by nature. Which is actually I think. Not a great corollary because it it brings my mind back to the the galaxy S. three it's like raindrops sounds which nobody should ever have to hear again. I want to know what your what your thoughts are on the strategy. I mean this is not an expensive phone by modern standards. Around seven hundred thirty. Us dollars if you convert from Korean won- it's one of the first phones to run a snap driven seven sixty five rather than the eight sixty five eight gigs of Ram one hundred. Twenty two point. One storage Triple camera setup on the back including a forty eight megapixel trimbe primary camera an ultra wide and a depth No telephoto Forty three hundred million of our battery and I sixty eight water resistance. It's got active. Stylus support just like V. Sixty which is very cool. And there's a three point five millimeter headphone Jack. Jerry's very happy about that. So what what do you think is this? Is this enough for L. Is this just another kind of bump in the road is it? Is it going to turn their fortunes around? What do you think is is going to happen here? You guys are also thinking that this is going to replace the g series correct. We think so. This is probably they're going to have visas. Which is their high end flagship. All whatever and then they have like an almost flak ship more design focus g series which has developed now correct. That's your you're taking. Yeah I definitely I agree with that. Yeah well I agree. I think that DAB on its own is a good idea like I think given how many given the volumes of algae. I don't think that they need to you. Know flagships with the same processor for for one year so it would make sense to to separate the two and then to to really give both like a reason for existence so You know the the enthusiasts can have the TV series and then the that The I guess the regular people care more about design and and and hopefully Polish. Because I think that kind of seems to be what they're going forward to make the phone like pretty and nice versus just like throwing all the specs in there I think I think it makes sense in general separate those two. I think I think the phone visually looks much better than any recent. Lg phone at least from the series. I thought that the G eight and G S excellent whatever. The old looked rather clunky. And I think I think we geeks like to at not realize how much a product looking pretty matters to people so I I. I think I think it's not a not a bad idea to revamp their design and I think it looks. Looks like a no ten a Sony or whatever but I I think it looks definitely more definitely nicer than previous. Lg phones. I just I wonder whether that price tag is is still going to be a problem for them. It's not a flagship anymore Not a full flagship anymore. and I feel like I feel like for four seven hundred dollars having a a phone. There's plenty of phones with snapdragon. Eight hundred series in that price winter reading. So I think it's going to be a little tough but I like it more than their latest G. series phone so I'm hoping that it will bring them some improvement. I think you nailed it. Yeah I agree Jerry I want. I want you to finish that thought but I thought the g eight was a great phone. I actually liked it a lot. I thought the the depth sensing time of flight sensors on the front that allowed you to kind of claw and it you know whatever it was called like the feature was underwhelming but the idea was there and I think. Lg Does that a lot where it has really good tech demos. That don't translate. It's really flushed out Features and the V. series. I just think goes with brute force and it does a really good job and I. I had one on the show a couple of weeks ago. some gadget guy and we were talking about why people are so passionate about. Lg and it just comes down to the fact that like as you said at the beginning They get a bad rap in the media. And I think I posted something online yesterday on twitter about how people are upset that. Lg doesn't get the same respect. It's kind of a Rodney dangerfield problem right that. L. D. doesn't get the same respect as as Samsung. They deserve that respect. And I. It's funny because I disagree. I think that. Lg has done this to itself to some extent. But I also agree that Samsung just steals all of the air in the room by virtue of its of its a massive marketing budgets and that does not always translate into. It's fair comparisons. But I do think that. Lg deserve some of the blame here as well absolutely. I do think that they're like like things that Reviewers I wish cared more about but I mean it's it's really on the company to make people care about the product if people don't care about the features that they think are important and maybe those features aren't all that important in the end and and Yeah I mean L G has done plenty to confuse US reviewers and to to make us feel like man you know not. All of their products are as exciting as they could be. So I mean I design is definitely one of those things so if they if they could Polish that up I think it would be helpful to say the least Jerry. Finish your thought on that because I I want to hear what you think before we move on I think in North America. This phone is doomed just like any other. Lg Phone People are gonNA see snapdragon seven sixty five and then a seven hundred dollar plus price tag and nobody's going to buy it because for two dollars more a month can get a phone with a snapdragon eight sixty five and five G. even though they'll never be able to use it and all these other things that they have been told over and over by phone manufacturers dead they really need to have Part of that. I hate to blame US but sometimes I have to. We have to care about the phones that consumers care about if we want to stay in business. We can care about other things but we can't devote let's say. Daniel is the biggest. Lg Fan in the world. He can't devote time to say all the good things that LG does because he has to devote his time to running a business and when lg can't convince consumers that you know these phones are worth caring about. We can't get the message across therefore nobody's going to care. Well I mean the the irony there is at. Lg is still the third biggest selling the third highest selling Oem in North America. Just because of its Carrier relationships so that was a big reason why the sixty was only released carriers not unlocked like other LG phones. I'm excited to see what happens. I mean L G not leaving I think David Ruddick on the show a year ago and he had predicted that by this time algae would be completely out of the game the way that HCC seems to have kind of abandoned smartphone aspirations. So I'm glad that there's they're still in it and they're trying new things because the more competition the better I just hope that LG can can fix. Its endemic marketing. It's IT's software update its its pricing. It's just like the there are things that plague the company For every release and I hope that finally it can get get he can just leapfrog all of them and then really compete because mainstream is important whether you care about high photo high quality audio or whether you care about content creation on your device both of which. Lg is the best at the be. The best in the business at it doesn't matter if you're fundamentals are are bad and and you know the V. series is a great series but some of the fundamentals are just not up to snuff. You know maybe. Lg Fallen into the same trap is Sony. L. IS GONNA make phones forever and lose money doing it because the company itself can afford to do. So that's what we see with Sony. Today Sony loses money on every single phone they sell and they don't care they they WANNA sell a complete electronics services packaged to their loyal customers. Who have a Sony?.

"And what's not and this way. We hope that we'll be able to cover all the products that are on the market. And not just you know whatever is worth reviewing for a professional reviewer. So I'm curious what you've seen. I mean you've done reviews but you're you also watch. I assume a lot of youtube videos of product you read. I assume a lot of quote professional reviews although a lot of our listeners may dispute that we are professionals they take issue with what we say time which is fine. Because they're they're reviews are subjective and and that's the way it'd be but how are you seeing the priorities of your user base right now as difference to what you typically see from somebody who maybe does this for a living and may be a little bit if not jaded than than somewhat ambivalent about what they're reviewing because they do it so often? I mean one of the clear things that we see is that that there's there's one more thing that I think. Professional reviewers are typically not very well not very good at doing and that is giving you a long-term perspective about a product so there are these like after the buzz and and everybody calls it something else you know like re review one year later or whatever but it's it's hard to get a consistently clear idea about how a product has aged and and we are coming to to build up more features in the future that that make it really obvious whether a product is not just interesting as it launches but whether it gets good software support whether it breaks whether it is durable whether it is still a good investment later down the line so I think that's that's one thing and then the second thing is I feel like I feel like we tech reviewers. We live in a little bit of a bubble and we we kind of parrot each other. I think a lot of it even with the best intentions. You basically think that the community things a certain thing. Something is important. Another thing is not important and then I think we all just assumed that this is relevant and now we go along in these These are generally assumed directions. And one of the things. I hope that the community will show is what the community really cares about. So like you'll actually be able to see okay. Which aspect of a product is important to the People? In which aspect is not. I have a very different approach to reviews than say Jerry. I have a very different approach to reviews than say Andrew or Alex or anybody else on my team. I love that it does come down to individual preference but you know what I've always found really interesting especially about these umbrella. Brands like android central. Is that when I personally review a Galaxy S. twenty on a c? I'm personally reviewing it. But it comes to represent the entire brands opinion of this product. What I what I love about crowd. Is that eventually with enough data points. It doesn't matter because it just kind of equals out over time right if you are able to break down. These certain categories. Somebody who really really cares about. The camera will be able to filter for devices that prioritize camera features are particular camera features over battery life for display size or something like that. What's the evolution of the community or or the APP the community within the APP? Say a year from now once you hit a critical mass of users. What would your ideal relationship be with that community? And how do you see that may be impacting? The the way that a typical android central reader or youtube watcher will will make buying decisions if crowd gets large enough that it's also just a defacto choice in how people decide what to buy what what what. I'd like crowd to be in a year. I have many ideas and many wishes and many dreams. We'll see which of them actually come true but The first thing I would love to first of all build up a really good product database. That would be kind of the the number one step and we are actually working. This very hard I think one of the core like kind of infrastructure layer things that is missing from the product review and the product buying and discussion. Experience is to just have a really nice free easily understandable well categorized reporter. Terry all the products where you can see you know when it was released What the SPECS are what other devices? It is connected to. I always have this pet peeve that no maybe some of the devices like phones they have like you know. You have sites like You know. Gsm Marina or whatever that have an okay database. Actually pretty decent database. But I'd just like to have an even better database and for all the gadgets As a as a foundation and I see this as a as a wikipedia like project Especially based on on the feedback from our users. So far we have since we've launched the APP We create our product database manually. So my co founder and I we just input things into databases find images but we've received I think while over eight hundred product requests from people so far and we have people who are like very actively now monitoring whenever a new phone comes out whenever new earphones from a particular brand Kamat. And whatever so we plan to to you know together with the community at build out a system that where where this stays up to date and relevant and and well connected 'em and then We would actually not really like to replace professional reviews. I think you are hinting at this. A little bit but really we think that it would be a really nice compliment to it So We want to create two things that I think would be really useful for For publishes like yourself one is kind of to to give the the ability to expose our day die into let's say embedded in an article of yours or in your forum where you can for example say. Hey we're doing a review Here's our opinion of it. And by the way you can see you can see what the community thinks of it. And then this could be embedded into either articles of publishers or on posts or on social media basically to become like a source of truth. For what the community thinks of any particular aspect of any particular product? Then we Would like to Go past reviews so we would also like to let people like we'd like to turn this APP into a sort of news feed almost so you you you Pick which devices you own. What product categories? You're interested in and then you could bring in articles from let's say android central or or whatever publication into newsfeed. We already have a sort of newsfeed And then you could. You could follow stuff there And we would like to people also express their opinion on products that they don't own yet Not In a form of a review but in a form of let's say You can vote on. How exciting you think newly released product is or if there's a leak would you like this or would you like that you like curve screens and general or not That sort of stuff so a lot of news and community engagement stuff and then hopefully making that data really well-structured and really Easy to digest and also to to Exposed to external places. You can you can see it. Not just on crowd but you can see it on in an article somewhere and so on. I'm not sure if I've answered the question but those are th that's amazing. I mean that's really ambitious. I'd love to learn. I mean this will obviously play out and we'll have you on the show again once the Wants a bit more mature and perhaps once it's public but I you know before we move on I just want to ask do you have monetization plans if If if you can talk about them like what would your ideal way be of earning money from this as it ad based as it partnering with? Oem's is it sponsored. Placements is it. You know all number of is charging for access to the API so that you can embed widgets on webpages. Do you need me to be your business manager because I could help joking but all of these like there are so many potential ways to make money on an APP like this and and yet it's so intrinsically difficult to make money from any APP That I I wonder what your what your current plans are for that. We've had all the all the same ideas that you've just listed here And honestly I wouldn't really pick one. That will be the one that we go with because honestly we'd have to Simply try what works what doesn't work and and and we really want to make sure that of course. This is a community approach so we really want to make sure that the community feels like they're not being taken advantage of or or not Selling their private purchasing data to whoever or we really want to make sure that they feel like our monetization model doesn't hurt them. And and hopefully factually makes makes life better for them. But we we're we're playing around with all of those options and one one of the easiest initial thoughts that we have and again It'S UP FOR DEBATE. An for testing But but the initial idea that we have is that people have already asked us why there isn't a purchase button in the APP. So let's say you find the perfect pair of headphones You've gone through all the reviews now. He's decided that this is what what you want. Why not you know. Give you a a a a place to link to. I don't know Amazon or your local retailer and then you have an affiliate Business Model So that could be a base because that that is actually something people have already requested. So we're we're looking at it and we'll see we'll see how that goes and then we're also looking at a lot of other monetization methods we're thinking off some kind of premium subscription Possibly if if people feel that the That that the would want to support the community and they would want to avoid having other monetization. What else that as an option at honestly it's all on the our. Our current goal is just to make sure that we have we nailed the engagement and the the the product review.

"Week joining us again. Back with some art are you. Are you in the Polar Vortex Jerry? I don't even not even know it reached that far south. Wasn't that a movie with Tom. Hanks yes. I'm pretty sure Tom. Hanks's run the gamut of every weather related movie in history. But Are you? Are you leaving freezing right now? Because its freezing here in. Toronto is like seventy yesterday. And it's like seventy below today. I think that's unacceptable world. Come on already dealing with enough as it is. And I'm so pleased to welcome. Back Martin. Bart's tech alter is as you may know him on the Internet Back to the show. Martin how are you man? I'm doing great. No polar vortex over here. We have very good western Berlin. I don't actually think you've ever had a polar vortex in Europe. That's I don't think that's the thing that you have. I remember one so it could be possibly it means it's basically when the jet stream brings a bunch of Arctic air and has it sit on top of your face for a couple of weeks and then we get unseasonably cold weather in May where it snows in New England. And I think it's the coldest it's ever been in parts of Alabama right now in. May It's it's very strange if you WANNA learn more about it. The Washington Post had a really good explainer on what it is but I wanted to ask you. How's how's life in Berlin? I feel like you guys must be out of the worst of it. Since you had a quick A relatively quick flattening of the curve over there. Yeah I think compared to the rest of the world We're doing okay People certainly don't seem to be too stressed. About Dependent mckinney more. People are out in about a stores have started opening. So you can actually unless the story is very big you can actually just go in and and Shop you have to wear masks In Public Transport and in stores but life is slowly returning to normal. So not too bad. And what does that look like? From a just from a bureaucracy perspective are people still being tested. Is there still community spread or is that largely finished now? People are definitely still being tested. I think Germany has one of the highest testing rates per capita of I think almost all the countries in the world at least the big developed ones and there. They continued to do quite a lot of testing but they weren't any huge Problems with the healthcare system. The there were no big spikes and the emergency rooms so generally speaking the healthcare system didn't collapse really anywhere so I think in general life is just slowly returning to normal. There's testing and that's really good news. It's quite stark seeing the The number of cases in verses its per capita death rate compared to other countries like Italy Spain the US Canada basically every other country in the world's Germany seems to have done a really good job. Keeping everybody your most people who was infected with the virus alive which is a testament to the healthcare system for sure. Yeah and I think it's there's two factors the one that you've said there's the healthcare system was working quite well. Nothing the other one is that they did a lot of testing and they did a lot of contact. Tracing quite early so probably. The reported number of cases is actually is way closer to the reality than in most countries. So you just see like you see lower rate because you just have a more more accurate number That you comparing to the number of cases is more accurate. That's actually a really good point because the numbers that we see when we go to our local newspaper websites and check the daily case rates. It's it's basically reflective of just how many how many tests been able to perform rather than the reality of how many people are infected except in some countries like Germany and South Korea. So Amazing Amazing News. I'm really glad to hear that everybody's most people are doing well and that you're safe and healthy. I wanted to bring you on the show. Because you're celebrating. Something Pretty Momentous this week you launched your first. App called crowd and it is a i. Guess a crowd source smartphone review evaluation quite QNA Faq B. R. B. W. T. F. You know APP and I. I would love to hear a bit more about it because it's something you discuss the last time you were on the show in January and I guess back then it was still in sort of earlier Alpha stage. But you've now launched an open Beta. Anybody can downloaded with an and request a an invite code so tell us about what crowd is and why you think it's important for the market right now. The crowd is It's an android APP for an hour going to bring it to us on the web at some point as well but it's an android happened. I guess the the concept is to give Tech enthusiasts black ourselves a place where they can review a the gadgets that they own. That's not only for smartphones. You can also review. I don't know what your Vr headset. Your drone your Google home Stuff so you can review all the gadgets that you own. We've developed a whole Mechanics how reviews work on platform as as opposed to other crowdsourced review platforms. Because we think that they're quite clunky and we don't realize how they work and of course you can Find a lot of reviews from from other tech enthusiasts. We've been out for about a a week and that the response has I think has been overwhelmingly a positive. I mean if I if I expected X. amount of excitement we got tax so people have been really really Excited about it and I guess the the concept of of crowd is that there really isn't Currently I think a good place for for for tech enthusiasts to foot for the community that we have to kind of Voice their opinion and to to let them have an avenue where they can review the products that that the that the own end and to vote about which products they like in which ones they don't like and we would like to build that community for them. So I just wanted to publicly hold you accountable for my inevitable job loss. Because this is completely unacceptable. Martin I don't. I don't like where this is going. No I think I think it's amazing. I think the democratization of product evaluation needed to happen. It's happened through the comments and through forums. Those as you said are credibly. Clunky what was the I mean you? You mentioned that previous examples of this were really bad. But what was the impetus for building this particular product in this way as a mobile APP rather than a mobile website or sort of as a some other form that could've taken On on maybe a different platform so the reason we chose to go with a android is simply because most of my viewers are using android phones. I think it's about eighty percent and obviously our audiences are first user. Basil just made sense to develop something for the majority of my audience But yeah so what we wanted to achieve of. This was the the original idea for crowd. L. Standing in a store trying to buy a product specifically an ST card for my camera. And trying to figure out if like which one of these St Cards. I have to buy. That would be fast enough for my camera and it took me. I don't know twenty thirty minutes of research store on my phone. I was just so annoyed why I couldn't ask people who own this camera would have been such an easy easy answer and this is kind of where we realized that. There's there's a lot missing from the review experience online. For the one part I think Professional reviewers like yourselves or like youtubers. I don't do many reviews but youtubers like me. We can only cover so many products are we can cover the latest iphones delayed. Samsung phones. Delayed US job. Bre Headsets and whatever but there's a lot that we can't properly cover And we also thought that the the people can cover it so the actual owners and the community. Their current is so clunky. Like if you go if you go to an Amazon store listing for example. You have five thousand reviews. You're never going to get what those five thousand people are saying. Because it's just five thousand little pieces of taxi it's never to. Never GonNa read. It doesn't add up to anything. You can't easily scan it. You can't interact with it instantly. It's I feel like it's a very old school and solution. Basically just give people an open field and then let them do whatever so what we want to do is to break review down to its core components and to make those really easy to both supply and and to to define what you're looking for so we have currently two main things you can do on the APP one. You can give a star ratings on different features of a product so for example depending on what product is that say you have a VR headset? You can read it Based on very specific criteria that has relative. Vr headsets. Like how accurate does the Han tracking? How accurate is the head tracking if it has a battery? How good is the battery? How good is the field of you? And you can rate these It becomes quantifiable. So so you can see from the five thousand users how many people thought that The field of view was great. How many of them had durability issues? How many of them thought that. The cable broke easily and so on and so forth. And so you get a very quick nice overview at where having more people actually makes the review experience better and the to go back to my original question you can ask people you can ask owners real questions and a the what we working up to to get you. A answers Hopefully are are to get at least ten answers From owners an under a minute so basically you can ask. Is this the card fast enough for my camera? You send it off than the owners get notification and right from the notification they can just tap yes or no on the notification. They don't even have to open the APP. And this gives you such quick feedback. We've actually test this. We now have We were very selective on of who we've let into the APP so far so we have a fairly small user base We have we already have forty thousand answers and people are like incredibly engaged an incredibly quick to answer and and it really works that if you pick a product that This relatively small user base actually owns Then then you you can. You can really just ask a question and the answer comes back you can just see the answers pouring in said really makes it easier for you to make a purchase decision to decide what's good.

"But Roddy Roddy net was riding with it. Was Malcolm McDowell saying it was Roddy McDowell. In Clockwork Orange and Malcolm McDowell that was Malcolm Mcdowell? Oh okay good because I felt a lot. Better about this McDowell apes. Yeah so okay good. I'm glad that those two are separated my mind because I was like I really liked them. And clockwork orange could roddy McDowell who everybody hates. Wrote a letter to Rodney Dangerfield. This rejection letter. That said that he had not had enough of the kind of roles that allow performer to demonstrate mastery of his craft. Basically you're just playing Rodney Dangerfield and we all know it. Even though he had all the credentials to get in right so Rodney Dangerfield. He's like let's see what year is it. Nineteen ninety-five What's new? What's on the horizon? The Internet I think will build the world's first ever entertainment website and he built his own website and realized that this would be a great place for his fans to come vent their anger and it was as a matter of fact this gate like this one thousand nine hundred five and his bands came on. And we're like to heck with the academy that kind of stuff and the academy actually relented and said you're in man. Aaron Rodney. Come on what's right. And what did he say no he said thanks but no thanks? He still has a website. Rodney DOT COM. And if you go to that despite his earlier there's a section called jokes and had audio clips. I was like. Oh this is great But it's not him. It's some dude reading like as bad as me a really just saying his little one liners over and over and it's not in front of people it's like dead quiet jude thing as jokes. It's really weird.

MCI in Washington DC or wherever the rotates you on the iheartradio APP. So here's some more examples of the the lack of respect in here sort of thing. The irony is he got nothing but respect from his peers throughout his career. But outside of that though is still just doses peppered throughout his life and examples of times where he didn't get any respect like when he sued. Star magazine They published a story about him. Being Las Vegas. Said he would drink like Tumbler. Falls of vodka and smoke pot all day long and do cocaine which was all completely true but he knew that they couldn't prove it so sued them for libel and the court ruled in his favor right. Yeah so that's respect right. So they awarded him one dollar for his damage to his reputation. And one dollar for personal discharge. The judge went. Yes sorry livestream. People realize it's our kind he did. He did get awarded. Forty five thousand dollars for presume damages and I did a little more research today on that he apparently salute all and Kokin Week. Apparently Star magazine showed that they didn't turn a profit so he couldn't go after him. You couldn't appeal for more money right. So he tried to go after their parent company and it went all the way to the Supreme Court said you. You didn't start the suit that way. So He'd been worse now base right. Yeah no respect and even death as we mentioned earlier. Rodney dangerfield dead. Why didn't I know that I have an example for you? Hold on before he dies. He was on Howard Stern the year he died and since I watched that interview. Man That's depressing. He's eighty one and he's clearly like at that store but he still has his his sense of humor about him. But somebody called in to Howard Stern and said Hey Rodney. It's Bob Hope or see in fifteen minutes in Howard. Stern is like well. That's not funny Bob. Hope is dead so they were saying like Bob. Hope was calling from behind the grave and see Rodney Dangerfield and fifteen. And if you can't get respect from a caller on the Howard Stern show where this is actually in that interview which is like forty five minutes long and it's completely depressing so don't watch it. But not just because he was old but Howard's trying to talk to him about his childhood and stuff and he'd just written his autobiography really just laid it all out there like alluded to the rough life that he'd had an interviews and stuff like that but he published this book right before he died and it was. It was rough. Well I think the saddest thing to me about his mom was despite being completely neglected emotionally and getting no love at all as a child. He still wanted to be like a good kid. He still worked to support her and like apparently came home and showed his report card. He worked hard to get good grades. She wouldn't even look at it she just like signed it without looking and that was the saddest part is he still sorta defended her in that interview Like right before he was he was dying any made up with his dad before his dad died. Apparently even though he never saw him he said he forgave him for all that stuff. Oh yeah yeah really sad stuff though. You want to hear some more jokes. Actually when tell how he died well in this interview in this interview? He's telling Howard Stern Howard Stern's like he's about to go in for for the should I pretend there's not a siren background. He's going in for surgery and Howard Stern and asks him like. Are you afraid you're going to die? And he goes. You know what dying in surgery would be the best way to go like I would go to the drug me up a go to sleep and then it just wouldn't wake up. That's like as good as it gets right so he goes in for this very surgery. He falls into a coma during surgery almost there and then he wakes up then he has a heart attack. Benny Tell Rodney. These your feel went after that life that he had when he was so close to going the way that he wanted to go. No No specs you WANNA hear no respect a year after he died. Cnn tried to get in touch with him to get his reaction about the passing of Johnny Carson and if you read his obituaries a lot of shocking amount mentioned that he was well known for his role in the scout he went in the Scout. I got to the bottom of that. Oh laid on me. He was going to be in the scout okay. Role was originally intended for him. And Sam Kennison and he didn't do it for unknown reasons and ended up going to Albert Brooks and Brennan Frazier Okay. But it was one of those things I think. We're one of those Internet neat things on the Internet. Where someone print something that everyone else. Skopje's and base it so I think one person wrote because everything else that's always worth the exact same way like listens movies as the scout which he was never in doubt he wasn't now thanks for looking into that man. Sure that's what you get when you hang with chuck. But he did find love again in a situation in one thousand nine hundred eighty two. Everyone probably thought was typical gold digger. He was sixty one years old and he married a thirty year old woman who was really hot blond in La but by all accounts everything I looked into it was like she really really loved them and was great for him and they were super happy together or as happy as he could be and it turns out that it wasn't that kind of a deal after all made me feel good. Yeah like for example. When he died. She made sure that his funeral wasn't until five or dusk because he always asked her not to schedule an appointment for him before five. Pm So she made sure his funeral income until after. That funeral is a really big deal. Everyone basically came out in droves His pallbearers included Jim Carey who he. He took Jim Carey on the road for two years when he was a struggling comedian. In the Open Forum in Vegas and Jim Carey's getting booed off stage. Everyone hated him in writing stuck by him for like a full two years in Jim. Carrey never forgot that Chris Rock Tim Allen. Larry David George Carlin Jay Leno Adam Sandler and then your boy Michael Bolton Michael Bolton. He was supposed to sing isn't he was but he was too choked up to sing at Rodney dangerfield rally. They were really really really tight friends. Because Michael Bolton's song everybody's crazy was in back to school and I guess he parlayed that into a trip to the set where he got to meet writing dangerfield and they became friends for the rest of their life. So Michael Bolton was too sad to sing at Dangerfield's funeral and you know everybody was disappointed but there are a couple of people there that were like who. It's okay Michael. We know you're upset. You don't have you don't have to do this. You know it's everybody will understand. That's what they said to us before we went on. So we're going to close this with with a final nice little cherry on top about Rodney Dangerfield and sort of his outlook on his lack of respect with when it comes to the Academy of Motion Pictures Motion Picture Sciences. Yes as you guys. Call it in l. a. The academy. He applied for membership because he wanted to be an academy in her credentials us in movies and they said no no. You had to be at least three major roles. He had thirteen under his belt by this time including natural born killers for which he received a lot of critical praise right and they turned them down like jerks even got a letter. From Malcolm McDowell Ryan mcdonagh Roddy McDowell. Which was Malcolm Mcdowell? He's the good one are they brothers. I don't know are they? Relation.

They're not the only Rodney dangerfield thing on there. It's awesome L. MARTINE. So you get that for free audio he wrote. I guess he didn't direct it. But he produced and wrote the Movie Rover Dangerfield the animated classic about a dog who gets no respect and then Mr Oliver Stone called him up one day and said I had this role for you in a movie called natural born. And it's about this father who was molesting his daughter Raping his daughter and I think it'd be perfect for it and Ronnie didn't get it. I was like what? Do you want me for this role. He's like you'll see and did you see that natural born killers. You can get the scene on youtube. It's when Oliver Stone did the Phony Sitcom. It's how they portrayed that that part of the movie so they have a laugh track and it's it's really disturbing. It's like re layers of bizarre right so there's so it's like Rodney dangerfield sadistic incestuous molester. But it's Rodney Dangerfield. That's the weird part and then there's a laugh track to just throw you off that little extra bit. You know it is very jarring. It was pretty well done.

Yeah Yeah our granted. They're quick jokes. Still Amazing but he. He remembered them all and he wants it. Best like the guy was a comic genius.

Add on a sickly but so he's working he's working hard the stanton catskills like he gets re up. He he keeps going back to the catskills. It's one of his regular gigs. But on the on the side while he's working he's a singing waiter at the Polish Falcons nightclub where winners. Yeah we're Lenny Bruce's mom was the MC. He was an acrobatic diver right. But I know what you're thinking. Triple Lindy No. He did. Not Do the triple indy. In the movie. Obviously those of you who've not seen back to school. That was an in joke.

He gets married for the first time to a jazz singer. Name Joyce in dig and he had a couple of kids and move to New Jersey which we all know that the death knell for any comedian trying to work in New York kind of means you've given up but he didn't give up just yet he did for a minute for sure. Yeah not not at that point though. He was still trying to work but when he turned twenty seven he quit comedy and literally did not perform from the age of twenty eight to forty one at forty one he was like. Let's try this again. Well his he and his wife divorced so he's got a little more time. I think I'm going to go try comedy again. They actually got back together like the next year in stayed married for another ten years or something like that but this time around he was like let me see if I can figure out how to how to balance home life with this trying to break into comedy right. Yeah and let me try and develop an act. I think the first time he flounder because he didn't he know what kind of comedian he wanted to be. He tried singing. Tried impressions even tried comedy for a little while but he also had these jokes. About how much is life sucked like? He used some of these same jokes his whole life but they just didn't hang on. I'm quite right. Because he had his whole life ahead of him and he was young and full of promise that second time around he was right there in the sweet spot age. Forty one ish little desperate kind of sweaty and these jokes about how bad these jokes about how bad is life or it was going like really just kind of hit a lot more. He adopted a persona basically. And that definitely helped. Yeah I mean it was. It was SORTA him but it was also a character and when I was researching this I was like I was Kinda thinking about the. You don't see a lot of character. Comedians anymore no like. That was the sort of heyday with like Andrew. Dice Clay And Well Rodney Dangerfield and Imo Philips and it seemed like there were a lot of characters but now no one now. It's just like look at this thing that happened in my life. And how funny it is all these Travolta about my life. I'd like to see some good character. Comedians I can't think of any out there. I Guess Brent Wind Back. Let's wait. Wait what about like Larry. The Cable Guy He's total. I assume he's a carry character because he started out as a completely different kind of comedian. Oh yeah then adopted that percents. But I don't count him as a comedian so he's not watching. Don't worry no he's not. He's writing bad jokes. Start a flame war with Larry the cable. I'll totally take him up on other squash me with this sacks of money so he adopted his character He changes his name. Legally this point to Jack Roy. Which was that his father's name his father stage name Phil Roy Yeah. He Changed His name legally to Jack Roy and that was his real name till the day he died and he was performing under the name for a while until he tried the second. Go and decided You want anyone to remember Jack Roy. So he he told this guy that was booking them at a club in Manhattan. Could you just make a name for me and put that on the on the Marquee on the playbill? Yeah OR ANY AD. They took out so the guy who ran this place. The INWOOD lounge I think came up with Rodney dangerfield right but the weird thing is he actually lifted the name from Jack. Benny character like there was an original Rodney dangerfield. And it wasn't Rodney. Dangerfield right giant. Twist of of the PODCAST. It's all downhill from here. So the Jack. Benny came up with his character. And I think the forties maybe or something like that. Yeah of this grades. E Western hero named Rodney Dangerfield and I guess the lounge owner remembered it and came up with that. Rodney Dangerfield had no idea about this. So he's walking around like using this name for years and apparently he met Johnny Carson wants one of his shows. Johnny Carson was like you know where your name came from right now. What are you talking about the whole Jack? Benny thing and later on he saw Jack. Benny and Jack Bennie wasn't like mad or anything actually said I really love what you did with the character and you really. You know you did it just right so no harm. No Foul Yeah. They hugged it out very famously. On the second round he was he was making a living. Doing okay But he got his real big break in nineteen. Sixty seven With Ed Sullivan. He was He couldn't get booked on Ed Sullivan. But at the time they would book other Comedians for the run throughs as like just place holders for dress rehearsal basically and so he got spot on that and apparently did so well in dress rehearsal. That Ed Sullivan took note on the side of the stage. Which means he went like this. You're funny that's how you knew. It's all them and thought you're funny. Works for Nixon to do that. Great Nixon actually. That was the result of a huge long shot. He told his agent. Like just give me on Sullivan. And it played out out very well. Ended up being on Ed Sullivan like Seventeen Times or something like that. And it led to all these other Late night appearances us on Carson. Like I think a record he holds the record for being on Carson. The most seventy times something like that. Yeah merv Griffin Dino like all the due to are running late night in basically where the taste makers for all the comedians were suddenly promoting the sweaty weird coked up Pothead Booze Hound. Huge potheads. Name BY THE WAY. Rodney dangerfield right and he took it in Moran with it like right when he hit in one thousand nine sixty seven. He got to work that he was such a big pothead. Actually the original name of his biography was going to be my love affair with marijuana and he was serious he wanted to call it that because he smoked body said for you know sixty something years but well up until the day he died for twenty one on like he was smoking pot in Icu. In the hospital because he had an early medical marijuana exemption long before anyone even knew it that way he just wrote his on that was but if he flashed in your face you didn't ask questions so He got his big break. Actually Carson had blackball.

"She was clearly depressed like profoundly depressed and. Sadly completely abandoned emotionally neglected little right or I guess Little Jacob. He was he was left on his own from the time he could remember his mom literally never hugged him. Once never kissed him once he swore up and down. Yeah, this never complimented him or try to build them up she. She was a bad lady and starting probably around age eight or something like that He. Realized that if he's going to eat dinner on a regular basis, he was going to have to go. Get a job and go grocery. Shopping himself right so he basically raised himself about eight or so. and. The speaking of groceries, one of the one of the great things that stuck out to him about his childhood. He was He had to get a job after after school job. Who are still in school? And he lived in a fairly wealthy neighborhood, but he was not wealthy, so we used to deliver groceries to his classmates. Home! which kind of demoralizing on July ten you know? And he also while he was out there, running around on the streets there's. He wrote an autobiography year. He died in two thousand four and. He called this chapter male prostitute. Because he was like ten, and he was so unsupervised that there were apparently at least one or two local molesters. Hey Rodney. Come on up, got a nickel for you. and. He swears up and down that it was just. It was just kissing everybody. Don't worry. The child was just kissed by the grown man for a nickel. But he and it happened a lot, and he's doing it because he needed the money, yeah. So Anyway Rodney Dangerfield. Let's fast forward out of the horrible horrible funk. By the way we're GONNA pepper in some of his jokes here and there and debated on whether or not to try and do it as him. Because, it's hi. Marty promised. Here, there, it's hard to do that.

It's not like it's a good impression, but push. It makes me delivering my. Weirdo affects where I'm not even trying it all the weirder, so prepare for that, too, but one thing that he did and that, of course a lot of comics do they turn pain into funny and he really relied on his. His jokes is a way to. I mean the only time he was happy. It was when he was on stage performing, and as soon as he laughed that heaviness would come back, but he often joked about his mom. He would say mom never breastfed me. She told me she always thought of me as a friend. Which is a funny joke, but when you know the real pain behind it, it's it's just like the saddest thing you've ever heard. Tebbit of the funniness away from it. I've got a good parent one. You're ready. Yeah, so I remember the time. This is my writing. Teams Go. I. Remember the time I was kidnapped. They sent a piece of my finger to my father. He said he wanted more proof. That probably did not happen, but it gets the point across. And plus it's funny, and so if you were parent Joe Okay So. Tell you. My parents hated me. My bath toys were a toaster and radio. Funny. That's going over better than I thought it would. So certain about age fifteen starts. He realizes he's actually Kinda Hilarious, and that he has a talent for taking all of this horrible tragic stuff and turn into funny stuff. And he started writing jokes got good pretty quick. He started selling jokes, age, fifteen or sixteen to establish comedians. Yeah and he kept them. He had this Duffel bag. You would write jokes by hand is entire career. Put Him in his Duffel bag, so he literally had a Duffel bag full of like thousands and thousands of jokes and apparently I think. You said that during a typical performance later like once he hit the big time he would tell like over three hundred jokes in a set three fifty. Yeah, yeah, our granted their quick jokes still.

And that's the thing I want people to take away from. This is that you can engage in your own life plan to alter your risk. Don't wait you know people should start. They can change your diet today. They can I started exercising today. They can do yoga starting today. They don't need to wait so new research. Neuro brain cells. Don't age it's your blood vessels day. Yeah so anything anything that damages. Your blood vessels damages your brain so few know how to increase blood flow so things like exercise as and Gingko and beats and Rosemary and pepper. I mean really simple things Can actually help improve the function. Shen of your brain being upon us your table tennis. You're not stuck with the brain you have. You can make it better. And most people don't know that there's actually actually study from England on who leads the longest so they looked at sports. And so if you don't play any sports you don't live long. Tennis players live seven seven years longer if you play football or soccer you don't live longer than anybody else. Because you're putting your head with the ball. People who play racket. Sports live the longest. That's why play table tennis. Because you gotta get your eyes hands and feet all to work together while you think about this spin on the ball. Yeah Yeah I picked picked up tennis when I was forty five and I work at it as much as I can. It's just makes me so happy and I think it has kept me younger and well. It activates your Sarah Bellm and the Sara Bellum You know you're the young people listening. You're not going to know who. This is it horrifies me. I called the Sara Bellum the Rodney dangerfield part of the brain. You gets no respect. He even though it's ten percent of the brain volume it contains fifty percent of the brain's neurons and the cerebral is not just involved in coordination. It's involved in processing speed and thought coordination and so when you play Tana's you're activating the cerebral which has reciprocal connections since with your frontal lobes so it's actually making us smarter more focused. It's really a great game and my goal is really to keep getting younger a younger. I had my telomeres done. which are a measure of the the M caps of your chromosomes and they shorten as you get older but we know from research that through through diet through various vitamins through exercise stress reduction meditation you can actually lengthen your telomeres? It's not a one way street. I'm fifty nine but my telomere says I'm thirty nine. which is pretty awesome correct? TELOMERES are big big. Part about program we use and telomeres for many years But you're right just walking looking thirty minutes sixty minutes walking sixty minutes a day will let them your telomeres and increase your lifespan. By twenty five years just walking sixty minutes a day to some net easy. Yeah let's say you exercise your whole life compared to someone who is sedentary their whole life and you both had a heart attack from the books members for some of these studies. The person who exercise is going to have a smaller heart attack the person doesn't excise level large heart attack. What does exercise do grows? New Blood vessels I can speak for. Hours was on just cardiology and traditional disease management. But I mean here. We're talking about you know more natural ways to stay younger and healthier and live longer. It's great great. It's really great and I think the thinking about aging as a process that's not necessarily inevitable we can with a little effort work. Intelligence Urgence use lifestyle plus various innovative treatments that are regenerative to actually optimize maintain our health and even reverse some of the the things related to aging. Now I look at myself more. I've understood about diet exercise the more. I've implemented it the better I am. I you know I can tell you my my my bone density and my body composition was better than even just three years ago. Even though I'm getting older I'm getting healthy. So there is hope for all of us who are aging aging. Because that's the fastest growing segment of the population. And the baby boomers are all heading there and even if you're young important start young if you're listening because what you invest early pays off later. I've been taking care myself my whole life. I've never really been overweight. I've exercised and as you see. I'm almost sixty and basically as fit as a thirty year old or younger and I think that's possible for everybody. I just wanted to to have hope and believe that if they understand the basic workings of their biology if they understand how to create health that that it's available to them at any time and it doesn't take a long time. You're talking about really months or weeks for people to start to see massive

Severinsen the band leader is often Tommy. Newsom mm-hmm is filling in Tommy was always the subject of a Of of a shot or two got a great shot on him about his close. Because Tommy was kind of you know a a dry wit and a good foil. Johnny Johnny got a lot of mileage out of that This show has A classic slow news day as Johnny's to say that was always a the premise for not being to top. But he had some things to talk about to do. He was welcoming the tourists and there was giving him some suggestions on what to do in town about like the southern in California theater scene and of course Janis visit the snail land. Next up he talks a little bit about Faira Faucets. divorce He has a joke. That needs needs a little explaining which China so good at explaining a joke but he saves it with great Killer joke end the bit on Farah Fawcett you'll enjoy that following the monologue Karnak them magnificent Visitor from the east as Ed but sets up so well. If you don't understand the remember the premises Karnak would give give the answer. And then Ed would read the question Johnny had always had fun doing this. Especially when the setup didn't go well or any time there was something that was just a little off off kilter ed got a great Great kick out of it and they really They really have fun together doing it. There was one off color joke. That gets a big laugh from Ed. And and there's one that bombs and Annette even says You'll hear it but as questions if johnny got it right or not. The audience is hot and cold throughout the monologue. But Ed milks when he gets to the. I have in my hand the last envelope. Well that was always a good setup for ed it was always a good reminder for the audience that this better be a good one and this one is and I guess on a show is the great comedian Rodney Dangerfield. Who We've lost a few years ago? I actually even went a to his funeral and it was one of the more funerals I've ever Attended and everybody got up and told Rodney stories and Roddy was a great guy to hang around with. He used to come in the IMPROV. All the time I sit around and the big roundtable improvisation on melrose and a whole court as we say because who as a comedian did not love Rodney Dangerfield I love this monologue and then of course roddy always comes over and sits with Johnny and then of course the model continues is but it's a panel so johnny would set up You Know Rodney on a couple of topics and if you listened closely you'll hear where he talks about How's your health and Rodney's he's not quite there yet so he takes? He takes a break. Because I'm not there yet so Johnny Oh oh okay. We'll get to that but it it for insiders that know the how the panel went. Johnny would have you know three or four topics to to ask Rodney and I guess health came who soon in the equation and of course my favorite and you got to hang in there until the end. My favorite bit is when Rodney has finished all his material there. He's got nothing and Johnny's not given anything so he just turns to the guest to his right and says So how's it going with you because it just floors Johnny that Rodney's out of material and he's already turned to the other guests. I enjoyed that. I hope you do too anyway. Here it is. Here's a another great episode of the Johnny Carson. Show podcast we've got Karnak and we've got Rodney so give give a listen. I know you're going to enjoy it. I'll see any other side and now ladies and gentleman Johnny Yeah thank you. I'll be I I enjoy. I'll be honest. I enjoyed the applause with amazing. How many people think the show is over.
