"What have you seen recently in? The the creativeness that's been explored through smart speakers in skills and just function in general. We were an oratory. Society and people. Long I mean you talk about the Gutenberg Revolution in the printing press which really made you know the written word accessible to everyone it was you know talk was not cheap talk was everything if you take the Bible and you take scripture when you had rabbis that would quote they had entire chapters memorized and if you said something wrong people around, you corrected that right and we live in this age where talk is cheap right and you don't believe everything that's that's that's written. Also. Lost that art of communication you know when you're communicating. You, need to understand that behind every question is a questionnaire, right? We're all human beings and that's what got me most excited through. All of this is when I was a little kid I would get excited about back. Then it was commodore. I. Get excited about computers and I go and tell my parents and they'd be like I have no idea what you're talking about and that was a theme throughout my entire career like I felt excitement and I saw and there was just a barrier to tech and thing you know because we had to we couldn't have computers really understand human the intention but I, remember being like. Why. Is this so hard and it just every? You know I've been fortunate if I got to be part of the desktop revolution. And Client Server, and then watch the Internet grow and start and do html pages in mobile and clap and through all of this, we just left behind. I gave up explaining to family members or people in the neighborhood. What it is I even did they just didn't understand and smartphone came. How many apps don't get updated is don't get updated and they're just had to be a better way, and now we're at this point we're like talking to my mother-in-law she was telling me things she does with Alexa like asking when thirty. Roxanne on than I even know was there was a skill. They're excited and use this as much as my kids and I do and I've never seen that and that I think was what's really got me excited as it's back to human beings in, it's also to see during this pandemic. Just to share with you like. Skill usage and so I'm not sure if your your listeners know skill usage although a lot of people have used skills now I think the stats are around three out of four people that haven't Alexis have used at least skill when we created Alexa we knew. People were going to have conversations about all sorts of things, and we wanted to create a way for anybody to teach Alexa to have a conversation about something. And we do that as human beings in understanding context, and so you and I know what day of the month it is. We know what the weather's like outside where you are. You know we have some background we talked a little bit before this context, and so the I had really had to learn that of what is actually when I say something. What does that mean in the in that context? That's the way skills are. So if I create and I want to have a conversation about fitness, I, need to understand what a metabolic rate is. Would a heart rate is I mean all all of these things vernacular in a lexicon and that's really what Alexa skills are is have a conversation about anything And then you can share these with everybody. So we go through a certification process where Amazon we review it make sure that it does what it says it does and it's safe Amazon customers. And then we've also released over time because we heard from people saying, Hey, I'm not a developer, but I still want to create these conversations for Alexis. So we have blueprints which anybody can go to blueprints dot Amazon Dot Com and do these things visually right and so here we are in the past three months and I can tell you that just in the past two months skill usage worldwide is up over sixty five percent. We're seeing Alexa voice search like on fire TV that's also increasing. You know where you can ask, you can even go through not just Amazon Prime, but net flicks Hulu it's just a natural. To be able to ask for things spontaneous. It's inclusive. It just gets these these interfaces. Out of the way and what's great about this is you don't have to trust Dave one. You could ask Alexi yourself you can say Alexa, what are your top skills or Alexa? I want to play games so a lot of this you can do with your voice. Now we've enabled reviews to see you can give. You Know Five Star Review just with your voice you can get feedback to like if you have a suggestion for us, you can actually say Alexa of feedback. But what you can do outside of the mobile APP what I suggest to people who just go to Amazon dot com slash skills. And then you can look like anything else on Amazon. So you could say I want this category four stars up and you'll see some of these skills have like twenty thousand plus customer reviews and they are saying what are they actually doing

"Tits continue to flood in from people who believed they could help investigators. Catch this killer. One in particular could not be ignored. A woman named Darlene. Who requested anonymity back then? Called police suggesting her own son twenty-seven-year-old, Robert Mont may have been involved. In fact, she believed was the killer. She later told local reporters that she called police because she quote had to look God in the face, adding that she would do anything in her power to ensure that no more people were hurt. Her son she said was sick. She showed police labels from shipping containers. They had used to move which matched those covering the women's remains. Police soon found more connections between the man and the slain women. Most notably Roxanne had showed him the very apartment. They had disappeared from just two weeks before the murders. And on the morning of December fourth, he had gone to his brother's Motel. The same one Roxanne received a phone call from. The next morning he packed a bag and took off claiming that he was sick of the dreary Oregon weather. Police were able to find a fingerprints on file from job. He had applied for back in California. When lab results showed a matched prince found at the crime scene. They had all they needed to make an arrest. While making plans to do so. They learned that Ackerman had just been involved in a botched burglary. Under arrest as authorities questioned him, he confessed to the two murders and a third. He said he killed Scott George a twenty three year old man who had been missing for three months. He was last seen at a bar with Ackerman's. After Scott had agreed to show him around town, and introducing to people, his father had dated Ackerman's mom. Darlene for a time. Scott was known to be kind the type of person who would do most anything for anyone. Including help someone out, even if that person was a bit rough around the edges. His loved ones believed that that strength should not have led to the end of him. After police questioned the suspect three separate times about Scott's disappearance. He and Darlene packed up and moved to Medford. By that point. He told his father that he had killed. Scott, George. When Akron confessed. He said he shot. Scott George once just to see what it was like and a second time because he was pissed about a mess, he made his car. Still sickeningly high on those crimes killer told police he set his sights on a new mission to kidnap a property manager and get them to write him checks that the cleaning or security deposit account. That's when he met Roxanne Ellis. The morning of her murder, he said he held her at gunpoint and demanded the money. She told him there was no money in that properties account. He must have forced her to calm shell and ask her to bring him funds. Believing that once they paid him, he would let them go. While? He claimed he never planned to kill them. Evidence told another story. Investigators discovered that he had prepared a kill kit, containing plastic gloves, a knife handcuffs and a gun before assaulting, Roxanne. When Libby Dowsett later asked him if he had premeditated murders, he said. The perfect crime has no witnesses. He also said that it crossed his mind that they were lesbians. Later in an interview with the San Francisco Examiner Akron, said he tried to rob the women because he was frustrated about finding a new job after quitting a position at a railway, and that he had recently broken up with his girlfriend because he couldn't afford to visit her in Las Vegas. Later that woman would testify that he merely spent thousands of dollars at the club where she danced, bought her expensive gifts and occasionally paid for dinner. It was a purely financial relationship. She said he was a client. She also testified that he put a gun to her head in his truck at one point and told her that he had murdered people there. When she told Vegas police that they didn't believe her. Ackerman also told the examiner quote. I don't care for Lesbians. I couldn't help but think that she's fifty four years old and had been dating that woman for twelve years. Isn't that sick that someone's grandma for God's sake? While it remains unknown whether the women were targeted solely because of their sexual orientation. He was definitely homophobic and investigators treated it as a hate crime. The killer later revealed that he killed Scott George partly because he had made a pass at him. When a deputy arrived at Laurie Ellison door to let her know that they caught the man who stole Roxanne and Michelle's lives and devastated their families. She said she was ecstatic. When she learned he was sentenced to death. She said she hoped would experience the same torment. He had put her mother's through. He was sentenced to death for the murder of Scott George to. Achromatic died behind bars reportedly of natural causes in two thousand eighteen.

Which Green called disgusting before promising to work to fire stark as quickly as possible. Green said Tanna police learned of the incident when one of the departments captains became aware of post on social media from a young woman, indicating she had been a victim of sexual assault, and that the culprit Fontana police officer. This post led green to personally requested investigation by the sheriff's Office. Stark was booked into the West Valley. Detention Center after his arrest and posted bail the next day. Those are true crime headlines next a murder case, the town of Medford Oregon will not soon forget. But first a quick break. Welcome back to murder minutes today. A Tale of love lies and murder. Roxanne Ellis and Michelle abdyl met in the early nineteen eighties in Colorado when Michelle Tha job in the doctor's office where Roxanne worked as a nurse. Roxanne. A divorced mother of two was drawn to Michelle's spitfire nature and strong will. Michelle admired Roxanne's warmth and quiet generosity. A friendship blossomed and soon the women fell in love, committing to a lifetime partnership. Eager for a fresh change. The couple decided to move near Michelle's mother in Medford Oregon. `sleepy, sleepy southern town surrounded by mountains. There they started property management company together and hired Roxanne's daughter Laurie to work in the office. They swiftly became involved in the community and spoke out against two major anti-gay rights initiatives in the early nineties. Both of which were only narrowly defeated, they were tremendously brave in quiet and unobtrusive ways. A friend of the couple later told the LA Times. They weren't usually public or anything, but they were eloquent one on one. Respected as activists, the women appeared on TV and at fundamentalist churches. Sharing the message that the Bible does not condemn homosexuality. And when two of their friends were dying of AIDS. Roxanne and Ellis visited them daily to provide meals adjust I-I've change bedpans and tend to yard work. By, December, of one, thousand, nine, hundred five. Things were going really well for the women personally and professionally. The adored their children, grandkids and each other. And their business was going well. If only they had known how tragically insidious a newcomer to their circles would turn out to be. On December fourth. Days before a historic windstorm equaling category, two hurricane hit Oregon. Something far worse destructed a close knit family. That morning Roxanne left for eleven. Am property showing appointment and never returned to the office? When she missed an important appointment that afternoon. Her daughter Laurie feared something horrible had happened. But then Laurie heard from Michelle who told her that Roxanne's car needed a jump and she was on her way to help her. After Michelle left to meet Roxanne at the property. She'd been scheduled to show that morning though she too became unreachable. As another our past, Laurie couldn't wait any longer. She drove through the duplex and spotted her mother's truck. Once again her sense of relief was fleeting. As. She pulled up beside Roxanne's truck. It sped away. Certain her mother wasn't driving. She headed to the duplex, finding the front door unlocked something very uncharacteristic of her mom. And the building was empty. Immediately, she phoned the police. Deputy Chief Tim Doni spoke about the case and the Canadian crime documentary, very bad man, and said he sensed something was off from the get-go. He agreed to look around the duplex finding no signs of a struggle. Even, so he suspected foul play. And, because the women were active in the gay and lesbian community, he wondered if they had been victims of hate crime. These weren't women who just disappear, he said. Detectives questioned people throughout the neighborhood to see if anyone has seen or heard anything unusual, that might help them lead to the missing pair. Next door to the duplex lived a woman and her fifteen year old son. The boy recalled encountering someone. He described as a white male adult on the property. He said the man told him he would soon be their next door neighbor. The boy also heard the garage door open and close and vehicles driving in and out of the driveway earlier that day. His mother to had seen the man walking along the perimeter of the duplex. Based on the boys, description of the man police created a composite sketch. The suspect looked to be in his late twenties. He had straight hair along knows, and were square wire rimmed glasses. Michelle's planner showed only the name of the showing no client, which seemed odd. She had received a phone call from a motel earlier that morning, but because the establishments phone system is broken, the owners couldn't verify which room the call came from. A fingerprint found on the garage seems promising, but it pulled up no matches in the database. As the search continued gaining widespread. National Media Attention. Laurie felt frantic. She started listening to police scanners. Hoping to hear any possible. Break in the case I. Finally one came. Someone had spotted vehicle that matched the description of her mother's truck.

The adults made periodic checks of the sleeping children. On one of those regular check INS Kate McCann found little madeline missing from the apartment.

The European Commissions approach to blockchain

"Hello and welcome to inch blocks urine. Decadent podcast to blockchain ans- mark contracts. I'm will eat. Scuff your host for this week's podcast. We be discussing the European Commission approach to blockchain. And I'm very pleased to have Peters Zilkha this head of unit digitalization Blockchain Digital Single Market Directorate at the European Commission Peteris. You've got a lot of titles. Many thank you many. Thanks for joining us today. Could you please give us a brief introduction on yourself? I'm glad to I mean I'm a lawyer by background. I have the JD degree from University of Southern California before they had a political science degree. And though I've never really practiced their California state bar for almost thirty years now and since Two Thousand and five Florence. My Country Latvia joined the European Union. I've been ahead of unit in the European Commission and digital innovation. Blockchain is what I've been working on and you could say to US sometimes perhaps over used term but It's a little bit my passion. I've been interested in walk chain and tech since about two thousand and twelve so perhaps not at the very beginning but at least relatively early for the public service this is also why I'm The original co chair of the Fintech Task Force. I have my second Co-chair coming from the financial services side. And then I'm from digital single market and I mean in both these areas I'm working in legislation and policy in funding infrastructure and research and managing it as well as working with with stakeholders and international cooperation. So it's an interesting bunch of things to work on. I'm glad to be doing it well. As you sitting the key term as passion because you're effectively getting the job of three other men so very impressive So Peter is As it is customary here at Inter blocks. Could you please explain our listeners? What is blockchain? And how does it work? Well glad to try. This is one of these things. It's a little bit of a communications challenge and exercise. But I mean I would say that. It's simply a growing list of records of blocks In a ledger that are linked utilizing cryptography and generally managed by peer to peer network adhering to a protocol for communication between the nodes and then validation of the new blocks that perhaps gets already a little little technical some listeners. But I would say. It's a way of validating transactions and data in an immutable in permanent way. So that you can be sure that they haven't been tampered with and that you don't have double spending of a value and that you can transfer data along with that value. That's the way that we see it and I think it's also important because some people are I think most of all sometimes negative that they say Blockchain is something that's bad because let's say uses a lot of energy if they take the original crew for work and everything that doesn't do that is is not blockchain. I mean we take a very wide view. I mean distributed Ledger Technologies Hash graphs tangle on these types of blockchain inspire technologies is is blockchain for us. I mean we're not trying to freeze history in two thousand and nine. When the BITCOIN paper was Was published or at some other point. It's developing technology and I would say what is really important is the element of decentralization which is not black and white. It is a gradient going from something which may not exist of completely centralized to something which also may not exist of being completely decentralized but actually allowing a degree of decentralization That a single database or even some federated databases. Don't don't allow so. This is where I think it gets exciting and where it makes it possible for a diverse group of actors to work together while preserving their autonomy. Excellent really loved that. I'm element of your definition of. It's a gradient of decentralisation incidents that's a spot on now could you introduce to us all the different bodies within the European Commission you have the digital innovation in Boston you need. And other bodies within your commission that are here to research enable and further development of blockchain in the EEG perhaps give us an overview where we'll do some deep dive in in some of the sure. I mean starting with with my unit. We're kind of the policy leaders on blockchain as a technology. But we're not. We're not the programmers as I said. I'm a I'm a lawyer and a political. Scientists have other colleagues are engineers but were more economists lawyers people looking at digital policy and in my unit we have the e U Blockchain Observatory in Forum which is a think tank working for us that has a whole set of reports and videos and regular workshops which used to be physical in at least right. Now they're virtually cited We also have the European blockchain partnership that my unit runs. This is twenty nine. Different countries twenty-seven all twenty seven e. You member states and Norway and Liechtenstein. Who are building a European blockchain services infrastructure together. I mean actually building an infrastructure. This piloting this is not testing. We're putting public services on the blockchain justified. We had quite a filtering to see which cases were justified to utilize the blockchain. And this is also something you could call a regulatory sandbox because while the countries and us are working together we obviously have to look at European Union legislation. We have to look at national legislation. Most likely you don't find anything. We're blockchain is prohibited. But you certainly don't find many cases where it specifically allowed though. You're getting some legislation in France in multi in other countries. It's specifically see a root for blockchain Roxanne legally And then we also collaborate with the International Association of Trusted blockchain applications as stakeholders organization I myself I'm in the OECD Policy Expert Advisory Board on Blockchain so we collaborate with OCD with the United Nations and others and In Not Buzz. International position of trusted blockchain applications a global governmental advisory board but also in the OECD activities. In the other activities. We probably would participate in the spring meetings of the World Bank and International Monetary Fund. This year I spoke myself in the IMF Fintech roundtable last year. Also you have the collaboration in the Fintech Task Force as I said from our side digital single market I gave a basic description on the other side. You have the financial markets colleagues the call as coming from research in Salon with the financial markets colleagues. Were collaborating on the digital assets possible legislation we just closed the public consultation on digital assets. Hearing what the stakeholders with the community has to say and in another context of the Digital Services Act which is a updating of ECOMMERCE along with addressing the platforms. We are seeing how perhaps smart contract so we have to do something to ensure that there is not any fragmentation of different requirements smart contracts across the digital single market and the twenty-seven member states.

Airborne, Explained

"There's lot of conflicting information out there right now about whether or not this novel. Corona virus is airborne as recently as this month. Some public health officials have said that it's not airborne but I just needed to confirm. This is the corner virus able from what we knew. It's not a gun. It's spread by droplets. We certainly stone. Cnn evidence of airborne spread in based on our local experience. The virus is not airborne. This is very different than infections that are transmitted by the airborne route such as measles. Roxanne Kenzi is a science reporter and she says that we need to take a closer look at this claim. You can't get scared by one word but you have to know what the word means if you break down at literally just means something's in the air so if you're coughing into your elbow and and your cash all that droplet into your elbow I mean at some point. It was in the air between your mouth and your elbow but it got caught. I I think that what the mistake is to think that something that is airborne is something that as soon as you cough. It's everywhere like that's that's just not the way to look at something so given all that. What exactly does airborne mean so? There is not a great answer to that question. I think that you can take a very simplistic view. Which means Airborne Indians? Something is in the air? I mean if you're open the dictionary that's what it means and if you were to ask people who are era. Biologists so the people who study how pathogens spread in the air. They'll say the same thing they'll say anything. That's in the air as airborne but a lot of fire Especially a lot of public. Health officials. Have the idea that something is airborne if it is spread by Aerosol and not by droplets now you're wondering what is the difference between droplets Arizona's right. Yeah that is one hundred percent what I'm thinking right now. So traditionally public health officials at least recently have been defining the droplet as something. That's like a ball of mucus and virus and salts that is larger than five microns in diameter. That you're GONNA COFFIN UP SPEWING OUT AND ANYTHING SMALLER THAN that. Could be an aerosol. That floats around like indefinitely in the air. Because it's lighter and it's floating her you know it's kind of imagine like a feather like floating in air okay. So there are large droplets that can float around in the air and they are fine aerosols that lasts longer in the air. That's the distinction right. And if you trace back where they came up with this. It goes back to these equations from the Nineteen Thirties where people were trying to figure out like tuberculosis. And how it spread. So we're talking about a really antiquated point of view on these things and hugely arbitrary like I asked the. Who How do you know that this Kobe thing is airborne? Had you know? It's like droplets and I did not get good answer from them. So why are some scientists still sing that we don't know if the virus that causes cove in nineteen is airborne because we don't I mean the thing is we actually don't have evidence to say whether it's airborne or not in a normal setting in settings where people are getting intimated and it's kind of spewing this thing into the air even the WHO says there is a risk of being airborne in the situations but we're operating in an absence of evidence? What I'm getting from us that there's really no like you can't tell me right now in the context of this interview. You can't tell me right now whether it is or it's not we just don't know exactly so the People. I spoke with who witnessed SARS almost twenty years ago and dealt with that public health disaster. They're saying that. We should operate on the precautionary principle that this is more easily airborne than were saying it is or assuming it is because technically does travel in the air so it is quote unquote airborne. So is this just a language thing? Is it just that most virologist think of something being airborne as being transmitted through fine aerosols as opposed to large droplets completely? We're talking about a failure of language in my opinion. So we're talking about of a a word that is failing us because it can't really capture all the nuances of the different situations. So if you're standing in front of an ocean and you feel the splash of the huge droplets of sea spray. Those are pretty big droplets. But it's the wind that's carrying it to your face. So could we not consider those airborne? I think that's what a lot of the people that study. This type of transmission are saying. Why do you think understanding this whole airborne situation when it comes to cove in nineteen and the virus that causes it? Why do you think that's important? I think it's important to understand how easily transmissible this viruses in the air first and foremost for Public Health Workers. So if we say as like the CDC said it's okay to wear like Bandannas in some situations with this if you're like encountering patient's or whatnot I think that's a problem. I think that we're loosening standards. Maybe a little too easily. Because this mantra has been repeated over and over that it's not airborne. What are the top three things that you think people are getting wrong right now? I think that the top three things that people are getting right now are that the virus is only transmissible by touch which is not something that I think we can assume. The second thing that they need to know is that we need to find out information about this before we can understand exactly how airborne it is. I think we have to reserve judgment and hang on for that and I think that the third thing that people need to know is that they need to be kind of up in arms about getting production of ninety five mass which are more effective than abandon. Ah in protecting health workers to increase than that. The government should really kind of be stepping up for that speaking of masks. There's a question that I know is on a lot of people's minds right now. Which is that. It's really hard to hear that People who work in medical fields should be wearing masks. These n ninety five masks but then to also here officials say to the public. Please don't purchase these. You don't need them. So how do you talk about that issue? How do you talk about to the public about this problem? So I'll speak about this issue about whether the public needs to buy masks on kind of personal level and that's I know right now. There's a shortage of mass and the people who need those masks most are doctors. Nurses people on the frontlines. And that if you're basically doing the social distancing that you're supposed to be doing right now you don't need a mask right if you earn keeping far apart from people and stay home like you don't need a mask right so I'm not here to say that masks don't work. I'm just here to say let's get them to the people who need the most. This whole confusion over the word airborne whether it's okay to use it maybe it's a matter of not necessarily using the word airborne but talking about people coughing in and talking about those kinds of risks a little bit more and in some ways. I would say that that's why we've been told to stay six feet away from people right. You're so smart because actually as I'm talking to you like I'm thinking what if we just didn't use the word airborne at all because it just means in the air so like what. If we started talking about measures that could just be more practical. You know right I mean I think I think that's probably part of what we're seeing right now. This whole speedway thing this whole. Don't stand next to somebody. Who's coughing thing. I think? Unofficially that is a way to talk about the fact that this is transmitted through the air and not just on surfaces But the word airborne evokes so much anxiety and fear that it is just not even worth using right now because we just don't understand it and and it hasn't been communicated to people properly

Flighthouse CEO Jacob Pace on building a media company on TikTok

"Welcome to the digital podcast. I'm Brian Marcy this weekend. Georgia Jacob Jacob is the CEO of Flight House. which if you don't aflaid houses digital digital media company most tectonic but beyond tectonic does stout a number of us what like a billion a month billing vis a month? Yeah twenty one million subscribers bribers on Tick Tock Jacob. Himself is Gen Z.. CEO You described as a baby face of a baby face. Mogul that works. Twenty five eight and also The New Yorker said that Jacob has the radic energy of champion sled dog on on a break. How accurate do you think that is both say? We'll see weirdly Jacob. The same thing has been said about me. Oh why energy. So let's let's talk about. Let's talk about Flight House first and then then how you got involved but like for those who are unfamiliar. Who might not be inflate houses You you know. Target demographic explain it. Yeah for sure. So essentially flight house is Basically the largest entertainment brand on six right now so we're really the only ones producing original content So for anyone. That's not familiar with like tick tock. Of course it's a short form mobile APP a little similar to just kind of like a newer sort of breed of it right. Yeah And even like you know Taylor Lorenzo's point who was like on this podcast like she's like it's just way more robust than vine and just a lot more editing features. A different kind of sense of humor. Humor so essentially a very simple way of like describing us to someone that might not be familiar as like. We're the you know. Think about this as like a buzzfeed complex of tick tock so we're producing original content while everyone else is kind of you know creators in their own right. But we're making individual sort of tick Tock Stars and whatnot like what you're doing and is your building a brand brand. Yeah exactly so explain. I mean you have series. We have a serious so one of our biggest ones. Actually which I think to date has probably done over. I would say in the range of like one to two hundred million views. Overall is this one called Finish the tick tock later. That's cool. Yeah those those always do really well. I think the first when we upload it did like thirty million views on the first episode and it just went super crazy on the platform also explain. I mean it's always weird. You have to explain tectonics not yeah do explain for those who've who have not seen it at how or how it works super simple So obviously finished. The lyric is kind of a popular segment. It's kind of around the Internet right like like on Youtube and instagram. We've seen it where a popular song is played. And then the two guests that are playing it Essentially it stops at a certain point. Where like let's say it's the hook and then whoever presses the Buzzer I had dreams where I can't move Thing and guesses the lyric correctly wins inking of of you. So we've basically taken that segment and introduced it specifically for Tick Tock so we get big talk traders as well as You know big take talk songs kind of in the mix and so you have all these kind of very relevant names to the platform like guessing the lyric and it's like very interactive with the audience. Okay so explain tick tock songs. Yeah not ever hold this like familiar with that word subculture of its own. I mean you know I think old town roads. That's probably the biggest example of that. And then you have songs like la La la You know by whites. UK and BB. No money Released all these different records that are blowing up added Tick Tock I think as of recent we've seen that Arizona's Urfa Song Roxanne for Drug San Right now. I'll come on on this. Let's stick nick with with Old Town road. All right we'll see the big one hip to Tanaz. Yeah exactly but now explain I mean there. There are a lot of songs that blow up up until now so I mean this this is John Nra The the complete the lyrics like they exist outside of ticked on. Yeah I mean it's you know it's you adapted it to tick Tock back So basically a lot of these songs Blow up on Tick Tock right so a lot of these creators and users and when I say creators as I mean anyone from the big you know multi-million users to even just people that have a few thousand Get behind these different trends and essentially you know make talks if everyone kind of gets on the same page. That's an old town road happens differen- But a lot of these records the music industry right now is like really really really really prioritizing talk because obviously the the known ways of blowing up records are like spotify apple music youtube and so talking aways like a new soundcloud to the music industry. Okay you know on soundcloud. You had a lot of these artists like you know the whole soundcloud rap wave like pomp. And whoever and even billy ILITCH got big on on southbound right So now it's breeding a lot of these artists like soundcloud where you have You know little Nasdaq's and whites UK and Arizona and so that's kind of where part of our business model fits in is sort of working with the music industry to figure out the best way to kind of engage tick tock So they kind of promote their records so tick tock itself Self Sununu type of platform. So what makes media that works on Tick Tock I mean. We've I think a lot of us have seen who aren't on talk you know. Have I've seen the compilations and stuff like this. And there's a lot of creativity there but how do you translate that into into media. You know. Series repeatability yeah. I mean I think we're sort of scratching the surface on that right now Obviously I think in media there's a way to kind of entertain your audience where you sort give them the low hanging fruit and then over time you try to reel them into something That's a little bit sort of Bigger than that initial concept right so our way of kind of Are Low hanging fruit was finished a toddler. We kind of knew that if we gave them a product that was easily digestible. They'd be able to Kinda take face value but then I think as we kind of go forward it's like how do we make it less. SORTA talk specific and more flight. How specific and how does our brand really show and You know I think I was thinking about this the other day. I definitely think that you know one of the things that really make successful. Content of ours is interactivity so when we can kind of create a series where our audiences can kind of play along and they kind of do that with finish the tick tock lyric right like when they're watching it. They kind of feel like they're playing along as well and they can kind of guess. The lyric Kinda jump in there and I think that there's probably a huge factor for the success in our content. What are some other series? The F- We have finished the tick tock lyric. We have another one called Shit Talk Right now where we basically get artists that actually when we pull it up right now you see podcast Jacob. Yeah we have a lot of really a lot of cool new ones that were kind of rolling out right now but let me ask you this. Is there anything that you tried on tic TAC. That didn't work and why. Oh I didn't work Yeah we've had a lot of series that we've kind of rolled out that haven't done as well as finished at six and we try to make educated guesses as to why they don't work can again. I think interactivities kind of one of those ones that we always fall back on is like if we can make it as interactive as we can. It's always gonNA perform better Oh Yeah we have another one called like Suggestion box basically like fans will kind of jump in and Okay so interactive seems to be under activity read for sure for sure on talk for sure and then like even you know one that that didn't do as well as we wanted. It's Hugh But that was a really cool series was We had this one called it. was basically artist trippy. Read sure yes. So he was on. He was on Flight House recently. And it was this series called love advice with trippy red and and we actually got him a relationship therapist Inside our facility and trippy basically went through like fan comments of like Them them wanting relationship advice in Lubbock is and him in the relationship that are pissed with kind of like answer the questions and give advice and it okay On talk it has like I think three hundred four hundred thousand views on youtube right now which is like decent in our is But I think it wasn't as interactive. It was more of it was more of a one way thing versus like a two way interactive thing you know and I think that's just kind of what we're trying to build right now. So how do you see the type of media that works on Tick Tock. Different from the type of media works on say snapchat. Yeah it's pretty similar. I mean I think tick tock we definitely try to target it's at its Gen Z.. Culture Like just hyper focused on that. Like who are the artists that they find very relevant to the tick Tock Stars that they find really relevant snapshots pretty similar because is it is sort of mobile. I and the way that you sort of consume content is like vertical. It's mobile and like that's how we produce all of ours has Tom. I have a younger audience. Are you aiming for a different type of audience than than you would. I mean it depends on how you define that right like after like thirteen. Eighteen to seventeen right now a big portion of our audiences around thirteen to twenty okay and mostly female thing about snapchat though and I will say this is something that we don't do on talk is the graphics snapshots very graphic. It'll like a lot of stuff moving like in Ou- spinning For us as we try to just keep it focused on the person for now but we're experimenting with a lot of stuff even next year. Okay so who makes this stuff. We have team. Yeah so we have editor Tina. The seventeen year olds or their house. Yeah I know we're all kind of in our twenty something. Okay Yeah so you know we've been around the block. He's a Dovan stuff go. Yeah Yeah so how did you become involved with. You didn't start flight. Oh No so when I was around eighteen. You're you're like brought in as as the the old guy. Yeah exactly yes. So when I was eighteen I was working at our parent company. Create Music Group where I'd been there for a couple years because The one of the cofounders flew out when I was like sixteen and I just did a lot of business development and anr for them. And at the time I was trying to figure out like new creative ways to kind of promote our artists and so I saw musically. 'cause I was just very familiar with the space and I saw this page called Flight House and I just kept seeing everywhere so when it was at like a million followers Reached Out Start it's Kinda work with the kids that started it who were probably like a year two younger than I was at the time it was two brothers and we sort of brought them in and we acquired The brand from them and then just they were just like creating content on their own so it wasn't even original content. At the time it was it was like remixes so basically on musically there was sort of a library of music that users can tap into right so they'd offer all the top forty songs and in you know any song that was pretty much put out by a major label and where Flight House got big was they would upload sort of sped up at its and slowed down and remix versions of songs And the users on musically sort of found that to be like a valuable enough thing to follow a paid for and so some of these remixes would get like you know ten thousand one hundred thousand sometimes up to a million repos on musically at the time and that sort of how it started and then as it turned into tick tock we were like all right. Let's figure you're out a way that this can be more than just a remix sort of brand.

Prepping for Baby #5

"Today. We're GONNA BE TALKING ABOUT BABIES. Those of you who listen to last week's episode or have been reading my blog know about our exciting news so yeah we'll be talking about that and how things have changed changed over the past five years of the past thirteen years in the case since my oldest was born and different gear recommendations that people have sent in so thank you all for doing those out. We're going to be doing more episodes about advice. Various people have for the baby stages and such. I just can't believe there's a thirteen year age. Spread that is amazing. Matt is going to be you're. GonNa have a built in babysitter right and maybe at least for the older kids. I'm definitely comfortable. Leaving Jasper with the older children home town in newborns are complicated well. We'll we'll see how that all works out. I'm so excited for you. I mean you guys I sort of had this like inkling and I can't even remember why anymore and then when she told me it was like so I just I just I'm so excited for this and oddly enough some of not just lower but like I feel like a lot of my very close those relatives and acquaintances are all having babies at the same time so we are very excited to do this episode and talk to Laura. More about everything this US expecting although although she of all the people I know having babies. They're all having their first and you're having number five question for you. Is You feel like you're inducted into some kind of like special five because I do feel like you know two to three a three to four okay four to five to me. That's like that's like the Line Yeah I. I don't know I mean I always joke that. Zero to one is the big change everything. Oh I totally agree more from the outside of helping okay. Yes as whether you have a truly early big family yeah I duNno big families. Are I kind of in my mind. Put Four to five as the same bucket and so then then the six plus is where it starts getting interesting. DRE this inevitable. One more than you have always seems seems big big deal but six six dots crazy only crazy people do that now. We we did the reveal for the kids this Halawani about reveal yes so I had bought shirts for all the kids that the older two boys had wants big brother again Alex Scott one that said newest big Bro and risk got a big sister shirt and then I had a little onesie that said little brother and we all sat down we'd gotten back from our California vacation and we were sitting around the table. Call the family meeting hit everyone on route the shirts and a Jasper looked at it in two seconds like you're having another baby like Yay yeah because he put the pieces together like already put the pieces together. I think he mentioned that he had talked about with Sam at some point that they were speculating about it because I mean he's not an idiot. He's twelve. He's in. I am not Flat Tummy Right. You're listening for twenty weeks when we told them subtle. It's at twenty weeks pregnant with your fifth kid. It's it's not entirely so I would say. It wasn't totally out there. I don't take a lot of people were guessing that it was was the case. Probably imagine a lot of what you choose to wear putting wearing flowing hide it but if you were wearing a form fitting tank top. It was probably being evidence so they were very excited. I mean the big heads. Were just like jumping up and down like oh my goodness. This is so excited. Alex was a little bit more wary but I think it's more that was just overwhelmingly no context for what this even means rights but he arrested him. This isn't their first Rodeo zone their first radio edit over the next day. You're too. Alex definitely was getting into the idea and the funny thing I mean. They're all coming up to me wanting to feel the valley. Feel the baby kick like they're talking adding to the baby because this is the thing I've been so aware of with four other children is I mean he's my baby but right. He's their sibling and there's more of them and they're welcoming him into this tribe of theirs which by the way I'm not a member of that tribe I bet tribe is the thing and so they have their own interactions I'd just really a reminder that fits baby comes into you a whole community that is already there and that's kind of fun to welcome to Josh use the phrase we were thinking about number three and we were thinking about the a significant spacing between two and three which is nothing like five but still he said Oh. This is going to be a family baby and I like that idea like you're totally having a family baby baby. Everyone has one and so the kids talk to him there. They've been calling him a a name which I don't know if that will be his name but it's going to be hard to not not named him that if they keep calling ads really not some of the names.

Zach Galifianakis regrets asking Obama this 'Between Two Ferns' question

"So Zach Galifianakis is a comedian and movie star but he may be most well known for his internet series between two ferns in it he interviews real celebrities and says really mean things to them and somehow the celebrities do not van arrange to have him killed between two ferns is now a movie it's premiering on Netflix and Zach Galifianakis joins us now said welcome to wait wait don't tell me thank you. so. I want the movie which is whole areas and hate you and has a bunch of between two ferns interviews and celebrities actually want to be on your show right they want to come and do this. I don't know I mean I don't really know why they would want to do it it's not a prank show I'm not trying to prank anyone in if I understand correctly you tell the celebrities their job is basically to sit there and just well I tell that they'll have to be funny they just have to sit there. and be weird it out yeah. and we will give them insults to give back to me but sometimes in the moment we just get talking and the insults kind of flight naturally yes I've cut an interview short the. the person and want to reveal it was that the person was acting so well I thought they were good at just choke me out this parking lot really so that somebody was acting so is so upset your character that you honestly thought that this was going that badly. and I kind of said we're done to the director and he said no we don't have anything and I said well I want my life. well you can you can say Florence Henderson. it turned out that person just with that great of an actor I was in school by themselves but I don't try I'm not trying to hurt anybody's feelings I just am trying to cause weirdness yeah this but it is amazing for example you did one with president Obama oh yeah forgot about that yeah I. and and so you're you're gonna go to the White House when they were rolling out the obamacare obamacare thing and they were trying to get around two things the youth might watch. and so when you got a chance to go do this bit with president Obama what did you say to yourself I I just couldn't believe what you know even when we got to the White House I was I just thought they were good David was never going to happen and I was nervous and actually I sat on some historic furniture that was roped off. at the White House white really different. with that you know like the rope tight between the you know the the yeah it was it next to the war room and or was the war room or the map room and. I didn't know that there was a ropes velvet rope situation and I had sat down on one of the seats. and then the security guard blew his whistle of my ear yes and then I I was so nervous I did it again. Jack this is Roxanne Roberts did the president have any sense of or do any of the celebrities you interview had any sense when you start what you're gonna ask or is it all news to them as you asking about my proposition I don't give them the questions ahead of time with president Obama though because of limited time that one was more scripted than the others but he just kind of ran with it and a lot of that is improper really really so I in your interview present a mama you sit with the then present United States and you say if I remember correctly how does it feel to be the last black president. yeah and you said that to him yeah and I legitimately thought he was about to kill you. what he doesn't have to kill me has people around. that was one of the questions where I ask. his speech writer have I pointed to that question before we take that and I said has he seen that question. and the speech writer looked at me and said yeah I think so it just walked off like of course he has. so when you were sitting there with the president and and you didn't know that he knew you were about to ask that. and you did it anyway. I'm playing an idiot so when you're playing in areas you kind of get away with things because. part of the the comedy for this thing is how not to be as a human being right yes so I don't know he just took it in stride and his response I think was made up yeah well what was given your member his response. he just he I I can't remember exactly what it says which is weird because I watch it sixteen times a day yeah I would too I have I have to say in a scene baskets which is great as well you often play people who are terrible people. they're just they're not self aware they're not nearly as talented as they think they are they're mean to people that's correct so when will you be running for president.

Why Many Americans Are Drawn To The Gig Economy

"Is a lifestyle that in theory. Sounds amazing beer own boss, set your work schedule. This is why people are drawn to so called gig work driving for companies like Uber and lift delivering food or performing one time tasks PJ connote, Jim and I worked for interesting card. Uber and live. I live in Nashville, and I I started on list. I am authorized on both who ran lifts. I am using the cart. My name is Erica drano, and I've done post mates and lift so it's actually unclear how many Americans work in the gig economy. Estimates vary widely, but this kind of work fascinates sociologist, Alexandra revenue, and she's written a book called hustle. Well and gig. She was inspired by a story about the company task rabbit, and we should say that company did not get back to us to talk about this case, but revenue tells us this one guys task was to pick up drugs from pharmacy turns out, they were empha- means and he was being asked to ship them to China. And so he ended up reaching out to task grab it and after some back and forth. They said, well, you should do it. Anyway. Because the client is always right. What? Yeah. Really, really? And he decided he wasn't going to do that. He was a college graduate from very prestigious university. His entire future was a head of him. Eventually the woman got back in touch and he had to do a hand off at a local park and give the large bottle of drugs to some other person. That's crazy. It is crazy. What a what about that made you interested? I couldn't believe that someone could be in that vulnerable of a position. And I decided I wanted to know more about what else was going on. Well, look, let's talk through. Through how this economy was sort of conceived. I know you interviewed a lot of people for your book, and we actually called up some people as well to hear their voices, and I wanna play a bit from Daniel coins. He's thirty three years old. He lives in Florida. He drives for Uber. And he remembers what it was like I going to work for over with a smartphone. I was able to sit there at home, you know, real low point in my life and be employed within a matter of hours. I didn't have to get dressed up. I didn't have to stand in line. I was able to just go to work. I'm really grateful that this space exists, but I do want it to improve. So that's really what this was all about. Right. I mean, it was it was you don't have to go to a job interview in a suit or a nice outfit. I mean, you could just become your own boss instantaneously. Well, it meant that who get work instantaneously, assuming that there was work available on the platform, but he's still controlled by the platform in may. Any ways so through gamification techniques in order to encourage him to drive at certain times. One of the things we've seen. That's right popular is this push toward surge or towards incentives. So that drivers give certain number of rides over certain period of time look at additional money. But you know, that interview actually really highlights the position of strugglers in the gig economy. These individuals who are down on their locker long-term unemployed or going through a really dark time. And yes, the gig work is there for them. But as he also points out there needs to be some improvement is is just being able to have some work and make a little money an improvement for someone who is struggling and is just looking for any way to to bring in some cash. Yes. And no. So it is an improvement in the sense that it can get them out of the house that can help them to start making some money. In fact, there's an individual I interviewed who was term unemployed and he. Talks about being depressed, and how this actually got him out of the house and making money, and it really improved his life. But the downside is that these jobs have no protections and so- workers can find themselves exposed to dangerous situations that actually leaves them worse off than they started. And what about the argument that they know that going into jobs like this like that, you know, that you're going into a type of work where they're none of the standard protections. So workers are told up-front that they're independent contractors. But they're also very much marketed. This entrepreneurial eat those that they are their own boss, and they can control their hours, and they have the freedom to determine their own paycheck. So the risks that they encounter, although they might sort of know it intellectually going in it's very different to encounter. These firsthand. You I interviewed task rabbits who were propositioned on the job. And that's not something you expect is going to happen. If you go to clean someone's house in. Terms of the experience working in jobs like this. I wanna play you another piece of tape. This is a gig worker named Andy Carroll. She's thirty seven years old. She lives in Chicago. And she she works for door. Dash the food delivery app. I review as kind of a crutch to get through the next seeing and hearing even a nine to five and I'm still using it to supplement income here. And there, but the thing is like, you know, when you walk up to somebody store, you know, you get barely a tip from most people barely get tips. They don't even look you in the eye, and it just really like it really messes with your self esteem. So interesting because she someone who has a nine to five job is using this as supplemental income, but it sounds like it can be very demeaning. It is incredibly demeaning, in fact, a number of the workers that I interviewed actually talked about a high level of stigma that goes along with this work, some of them lied to family and friends and tell them that they are temping rather. Than admitting that they are working on these platforms. You you interviewed dozens of people for the book is there one story that that sort of stands out. They wanna leave us with one story that I think really sticks out was a kitchen surfing chef serve a rent a chef that actually went out of business while I was studying it. I don't think I had anything to do with that. But this chef I call her Roxanne in the book, she was cooking for a family, and she's trying to be very friendly because that's part of working in the gig economy have to be friendly and very personable. And then the family the couple she was cooking for actually propositioned her and invited her to participate in in a threesome, and she very very awkwardly, but still gracefully had to try to beg out of the situation. So in a corporate workplace, of course, sexual harassment is still bad. But in the gig economy workers are often walking into the home of a stranger who thanks to the apps is anonymous in a workers, sometimes think, oh, well, the company has the credit card number, but between burner accounts and profiles that are not. Completed workers really have no idea who they're going to be working for

You're listening to the newsroom from the BBC World Service with me Emilio San Pedro. It's not yet a month since hurricane Florence at the east coast of the United States causing catastrophic damage in north and South Carolina. Now people in northern Florida are preparing for another huge storm hurricane Michael which is expected to pass over the north west of the state later on Wednesday. The Florida governor Rick Scott described it as highly dangerous and potentially life-threatening. Let me be clear. Hurricane Michael is a monstrous storm forecast gets keeps getting more dangerous. We're now just hours away from CNN packs again, hurricane Michael is coming to the Gulf Coast, and panhandle and impacts will start in just a few hours. The time to repairs right now. The storm is dangerous. If you don't follow a warnings from officials. This storm could kill you lose Fajardo BBC monitoring is in Florida. He's been telling me more about what the authorities. There are saying we've been hearing about officials starting of course, governor Rick Scott telling people in Florida to be very alert this storm they're expecting impact on Wednesday afternoon. Probably they are expecting it could even move into a category. Four storms were very dangerous storm, particularly they're worried about the possibility of storm surges of up to twelve feet in some parts, they could expect them as you say it's different from hurricane Florence. There's at least one sign of relief for Florida in the sense that it's supposed to advance quickly. What are the problems with Florence? And we've got major storms and have occurred recently in the US is the fact that they've been going slower than usual because of that grading even more prominence of flooding. Apparently, this one is expected to move relatively quickly through Floyd. So it could be. Very destructive because of the wind, but not so much of the sort of hanging around what other preparations of the authorities making nearly one hundred and twenty thousand people have been told to leave and in several counties in northwest, Florida. Some people are particularly worried because as several of these counties are in rural areas they are relatively far away from the main resort city of Miami. And orlando. Is what many people in the world now, Florida for these are more rural and more impoverished areas? One of the counties, which is under risk by this here again, apparently they're saying that they don't have enough shelters capable to withstand this degree of uric aims. So they're trying to make sure that people are are well prepared. Also, they're dealing with another issue. The fact that is the third consecutive year that Florida has been under threat of a major hurricane and people are worried that in some occasions, they could feel that they don't take the risks seriously as they should. So I guess I kind of fatigue because of this constant threat of hurricane. So they're trying to make sure that the people know that this is a very serious situation. Reese, the President Trump's administration has seen its fair share of high profile departures, not all apparently as amicable as this one though, we're all happy for you. In one

You have the chance to deliver peace of mind to a future fighter by helping them fund their battle against this lethal fo the benefits that cancer insurance can provide a twenty thirteen study from the Fred Hutchinson cancer research center found that individuals with cancer were approximately two point seven times more likely to declare bankruptcy than those without cancer. Additionally, a recent study from the same organization found. That financial insolvency may act as a risk factor for early death among cancer patients, in addition to devastating person's health cancer can also recap Vic on their bottom lines and thereby further negatively impact their health cancer insurance can alleviate some of the financial burden those diagnosed with certain cancers face.

The Hidden Value of Medicare Supplements During AEP

"There's more to sell during a ADP than just Medicare Advantage. Find out why med sups make a great addition to your portfolio, whether it's annual enrollment or not. AS g episode eighty five, the hidden value of Medicare supplements during a EP written by Roxanne Anderson while it's true. The annual enrollment period is the prime time to sell Medicare Advantage plans. Medicare supplements provide you and your clients, a very important alternative. This fall. You should already be planning appointments to check in with your current clients to see if their plan is working for them. A lot can change in a year. So financial situations and health status have a big effect on plan selections. How can having strong Medicare supplements in your portfolio help. You make the most of ADP. Let's break it down by defining the value of Medicare supplements. It's beneficial for you to have Medicare supplements in your portfolio for two reasons. It's a good fit for certain clients, and it's an opportunity to diversify your book of business. Medicare Advantage plans aren't the best fit for all Medicare eligible. 's they have set service areas and plan may not be offered where your client lives. Additionally, the private health insurers who offer Medicare Advantage products, often contract with certain providers to be in their network. Your client may have doctor. He's been going to for years that isn't in the network of the most competitive Medicare Advantage plans available in his county in rolling in original Medicare and purchasing a Medicare supplement to fill in the gaps may make more sense for some clients based on where they live their hobbies, desire. In their financial situation, original Medicare and all Medicare supplement plans accept Medicare. Select plans enable beneficiaries to see any Medicare provider in the country. So if your client lives in a remote area loves to travel or heads down south for the winter, this combo is an attractive option. Additionally, some people find that their prescriptions would cost them more out of pocket in a Medicare Advantage plan. See if your clients medications, cost less with a standalone prescription drug plan and a Medicare supplement. Your clients should never feel like they have to resort to skipping shots or rationing pills. Furthermore, Medicare supplements allow you to expand your client base end increase commissions beyond the Medicare Advantage market. When you sell Medicare supplements, you open your business to people that prefer original Medicare plus selling. Medicare supplements can earn you extra cash through carrier incentive programs or contests like ritter's twenty eighteen one hundred k. cash giveaway and our ten k. cash giveaway. We will have a linked to those giveaways in our show notes if you're interested in learning how you can qualify. Now, you know why selling Medicare supplements during AEP is still valuable, but which should you put in your portfolio? You want to showcase a variety of robust products that can meet your client's unique needs. As an agent you can expect to work with clients who are healthy and clients who are not. Therefore it's important you contract with Medicare supplements that have different underwriting requirements. If a client doesn't have a guaranteed issue into a plan, they will likely be required to pass underwriting, be aware that some carriers may only go back two years when looking at an applicant's medical history and others may go back. Further. In addition, some carriers offer sub-standard rates for clients who normally wouldn't pass underwriting as you're considering carriers. Check that the ones you're interested in have a high financial strength rating to ensure that their rates will remain steady and the company is financially sound insurers with a plus plus AM. Best ratings are deemed very financially stable. It's also good to have Medicare supplements from carriers that offer household discounts a strong plan g. and plan and competitive rates for certain age groups. Lastly, before you finish polishing your portfolio, consider offering a strong prescription drug plan. If your clients are in rolled or desire to enroll in original Medicare, though need to enroll in a standalone PDP to afford their medications and avoid paying the penalty for not having prescription drug coverage, ready to make adjustments to your portfolio. Oh, drop us a line and we can go over which products are most competitive in your local market.

"Eighty five. He paid. The red carpet. Bounce hold when you ever. Roxanne Sean. I made her name in the nineteen eighties as a battle rapper. That's how she earned her respect on the Mike and years later guys like mob deep and their crew. They looked up to her even though she lived a very different kind of life because you know, they, they being the studio all night. They do full five in the morning. You know, they bring hurls they, you know, sometimes some people bring girls, some people wanna smoke. Some people wanna drink and all that other stuff. Roxanne doesn't do any of that. Any like. Is coming, you know? And so what do they do? Cleanups Luke while they have somebody come in clean up the studio spray. All air fresh is open up the windows. Do all this other stuff set up. Some fruit make everything because here it comes, you know? So it's like, so when I come in the door, they're like, and it, you see them all sitting up there like this. Like, hey, I'm like, hey, there's like, oh, you coming into and they just can't wait for me to leave so they can just relax and breathe. I think. Younger rappers call her aunty Roxanne's. She's always taking calls and giving advice. I remember the first time when having said to me that he was, you know, he's getting married records and he's to do this and we do, I think, and I was like, yeah, absolutely. He was like, you know, I got my partner, you know, and he's from Long Island, but he's here with us Roxanne actually remember saying to have it. Well, you could go solo, be a solo act because this way, you know if you mess up, can nobody say you messed up, but you. That was one of the things I said to him, you know? And he was like, yeah, but me and my man, you watch it. See, I said, all right. And then I remember when here in their songs and was saying to myself, like wow, cleans which is taken into another level again, you know, and they had everybody, you know, scared look, ain't no such thing as half way crooks. You know, that's just let's just acquaintance bridge model bridge. Yes. Thanks halfway. They should say no such thing pro. Ain't no such thing as half way crooks. If mob deeps catchphrase from the course of shook ones part to the song that would propel the group to start him. And that phrase, at least according to Roxanne was queens, bridge slang. Okay. You can't halfway hustle like either you're gonna be on his block and you're gonna hustle or you not, but you can't do this halfway is just no such thing, you know. So I was surprised when I heard it on the record. I was like, okay, and the world was able to embrace that thought. I think it's one of their most familiar lines. You fig if you're halfway cookie, gonna be, you're going to be nervous all the time. You're gonna be scared. So either you are one or you're not. Roxanne remembers the first time she met prodigy. My first meeting inaction with him was actually in the studio, and he was like, you know is so good to meet you Queen. You don't know, you know you wanted to inspirations it is and one of the reasons why we do this and I was like, thank you. And he was like, yeah, you know, it's going to be great. You watch and see. And I was like, okay, and I said, but let me ask you a question and he said, yes. And I said. Don't you come from a good family? Why would you want to pretend like you don't. Roxanne was touching on a major part of prodigy's identity. The world he's from, he's got a grandmother who's a successful dance teacher. She had a lot of resources, and she shared those resources with her grandson, but prodigy chose something else. As a teenager. He was enchanted by queens bridge the drug game, all the action in the Hustler's and the characters to him. It was also exciting prodigy called queens bridge addictive, but this was also the height of the war on crack cocaine. Many of the people in queens bridge were in a fight for their lives, Roxanne and her family, which trying to get out of the bridge.

Because we have a frog expect if what the pig goods listening to their music. You couldn't be blamed for thinking havoc and prodigy of both from this place called queens bridge. It's the biggest public housing development in North America. It's in Queens, New York, just across the river from Manhattan. Just like Roxanne. Shontae. Having grew up in queens bridge prodigy, didn't he's from out in Long Island, but mob deep without a doubt. No question one hundred percent from the bridge the cover of mob deeps album. The infamous was shot on the rooftops, acquaintance bridge. They called Pebble Beach. Queens bridge has a million dollar view and has always had a million dollar meal. We can stand on roof top of any project building, and you would see that beautiful fifty ninth street bridge. Those lights twinkling at night. You were able to see the entire skyline of Manhattan. You were able to see the river. You able to see the parks, we're able to see the trees. So when you go up to the roof, you can just dream you can automatically see like, okay, I'm gonna have this. I'm going to have that. This is mine. That's mine. We try live over there. I'm gonna live in that building. I'm gonna live on that floor. You were able to do those. Things ain't queens bridge, and I don't think you were able to do that in any other project. This place turned out some incredible rappers nozzles from queens bridge, Molly Marlin juice, crew, queens bridge to hear Roxanne describe it. Babies from these twelve square blocks were born to rock the mic. So you know it was our own little city. So even the the first signs of hip hop, which would be a song like name game, which is that banana fan of Obama for. So we grew up with that like, so that right there was like, we already started with that. So we already had a jump start, which you know what the name game, and we would sing it every day on our way to nursery school, which was also located in queens bridge. And so you would have a lot of it's it's no surprise that you have so many great artists come out of coins bridge because everything there was everything. Was there, the fundamentals are there, the it was there when she was a kid. Roxanne says, people didn't always have a lot of money, but somehow some way they. They still got by there was so much for us to see. You know, we weren't shut down at all. You know if you were hungry, you could go right to the runs Zony factory to run Zony factory gave out noodles every night. The Mayflower ice cream fact we gave out ice cream all summer toys, the the tennis ball factors like we would hitting tennis balls every day all day long throwing them up on the roof. So everything that you needed in wanted was right there, and so and having that pushing of the community behind you was just incredible. So if you were going to be the best that anything you're going to do it from coins Brits, you know you were and you know, some people say, oh yeah, you know, it's in the water, and we used to laugh and say that, you know, because the energy plant is located right there and you know, who knows maybe years from now, they'll probably find out that you know something was leaking in the water and made everybody superheroes, who knows. Maybe it was, but whatever the case may be the, you know, it was definitely in the water and I. Wouldn't change. It thing about queens. I just went Roxanne. Shante. You send your superpowers. I dunno. I mean, I'm still here in God knows I don't even know how. So. Yeah, that has to be a superpower because I survived hip hop in the eighties. And I'm happy. Right, right. That's a superpower. Roxanne mob. Dave, go way back. I did do some recordings on QB album. The track is called, we live this and even though I came out fifteen years after Roxanne shontae was Roxanne. Shontae.
