"Hurry up get it. and we're back. He is a programmer and writer of the today in tabs newsletter. Please welcome rusty foster rusty mesnier for having me. I just want to step back and have a conversation about crypto currency. It's it's been in the news as the price goes up and down. Its its frequency in. The news seems to go up and down to. It's also been in the news a lot lately around It being used as payment for various ransomware attacks the environmental impact. But i wanted to step back and just talk to you about it in the most basic of terms and i wanted to separate some things that i think often get combined so want. Wanna take each of these one at a time. One is blockchain. One is the argument for a digital currency outside of government and then the third piece of its specifically these currencies like bitcoin and how they're made and the theory behind that. Let's take these one at a time. Bitcoin began in part. Correct me if i'm wrong about this with a with a paper that explained The blockchain and how it will be useful to creating records of transactions like. what is the blockchain. And why did it become this sort of record keeping technology that people are talking about. The blockchain is a spreadsheet basically distributed ledger. Which is ledgers. The spreadsheet database essentially. The problem trying to solve is. How could you have a database where everybody can add entries to the database but nobody can go back and change old entries or mess with it. Say that like this. This line doesn't say this. It actually says that on without one central computer being the place. That store is the right version of the database. So everybody involved in the network and have the same database and it can be updated reliably. That's the thing that they're trying to solve. The basic idea. There is like let's say you know i want to buy something from you. Right now traditionally the way. I would do it. Is we'd have some exchange of currency and like there'd be some record of that and it'd be kept by an amazon or google and yeah that's backed up in a in a million places very sophisticated means of protecting their data but ultimately it..

"Look at that nose that you said Listen, he's just amazing, and he really deserves his his soft place to land his forever home because he's just been through so much. What I was going to say. Is that so important for these dogs, right? And and he's so sweet. He is very docile. I think sometimes people do get worried about they don't know what the temperament is that there are these dogs have been through a lot. We haven't adopted dog and he is the sweetest tempered ever. I'm in a dog that I've actually had in my family. I mean, it's pretty amazing how even temper there they've been through so much, and I will tell you the one of the advantages that I think that a foster based rescue has over a shelter is that these dogs are in foster homes. Rusty's been with Beverly and mark for three or four months now, so they're able to tell you exactly what kind of temper the temperament that dog is in every circumstance, and that's the same with all of our Foster's right. So rusty is given lots of kisses. Um, you know, the one thing we were taking. We were talking about during a commercial break because I did a Facebook live post on my own personality page because I wanted to show rusty before we did this segment. And the one thing that I don't think people realize is we know what people are going through when a loved one dies. But think about that. If you are an elderly person and your one and only companion is a dog and you die. That dog has no idea why you never came back. True. That is Rusty's situation right now. Rusty has no idea where his own or what Obviously he loves his foster mom. Yes, he does. And when you look at this two and Michaela and I wanted to get this point out when you warm your heart up to fostering a dog, and you've had, like 17 of them, I believe right. Is it hard to eventually let go of that foster because I would think he would get so attached to it. What do you tell people who have never fostered before? Because of that? Fear of Want to keep it. That is one of the things that we hear the most right and people say I would get too attached. I could never let them go. You have to remember that by letting that one go, you're saving the next one that comes down the line and Because the fosters get to make the final determination about where that dog goes. In terms of finding the right placement, they can make absolute certain that that dog goes into the best home for that dog. A lot of our foster stay in touch with their prior adopters. We have an alumni event every year. They get to see those dogs every year when they come back to the alumni event. So you know you have to remember that by by not keeping the dog that you're fostering, you're opening your home up to another dog that can be saved. Keep them moving through the system Well, and there are some truths it is summer. People are going to be traveling. People are Going back to work or in a hybrid situation. Andrea, You said earlier. You have the temporary fosters for those families. You may want to start to do this, and they are still have trips plan. But if you're going back to work, these foster dogs also aren't expecting necessarily for someone to stay home all day with them like I need to talk about that. Absolutely, they're not. And that's that, you know. They just do not need to have somebody with them constantly. You know, like I am with my kids. Absolutely. My for like a kid. Sam. I do like it, right? No, I mean, you know until recently, I think you know most dogs spent eight hours at home alone. We have a lot of owners and a lot of Foster's whose dogs spend That entire day home alone. So it's It's not abnormal. And you know, it shouldn't be a reason that you feel like you have to give your dog up. We are so glad that you brought rusty in and someone just commented on 16 W. T V and Facebook page. Rusty is giving you a facial boy, Rusty exfoliation with that tongue and all. Speak for the unspoken does wonderful work. If anyone is interested in rusty and is watching this video because there's some great shots, he's looking right into the camera right now. We hope more than anything that someone will give Rusty another shot at life. Six years old as young man. He's a small dogs, right, so a lot of love, left and rusty. A lot of life left and rusty. How do they get a hold of you in in fact, if they want to make rusty their own pet? Absolutely. So we have a website www dot speak for the unspoken dot com are adoptable animals are on there. We also have a really active Facebook page and all of our animals are featured on there all the time. So we have, like I said about 40 or 50 other animals and rescue right now we also have cats and kittens right now, which we haven't had in a while. So did they fall victim to the covid experience, too? Or was it more dogs? More dogs? People aren't returning cats the way that that they are dogs so no but But its kitten season and so we have. We do have a litter of kittens right now, so well, These people know where they could reach out if they're interested, So we're so glad injury that you came on today. Thank you guys. So much for inviting me. This is great. It is a very important issue, and I'm glad that Michaela and I addressed it because I think it's just I think it's heartless. I think if you adopt an animal, you bring that animal into your family. That is it. That is your family, and you are together through thick and thin. Don't give them up just because, Okay, the pandemics over. That's not right. And the other thing I'll say two is, I think sometimes people give up dogs too soon because they don't realize what kind of resources are out there. And so good point we adopt our When we adopt our dogs out. We make sure that they know that they can always come back to us. And so oftentimes when they try to return a dog will say to them. Do you know if your dog's too active right? Take him to daycare A couple days a week. If you have a training issue, we have a full stable of trainers that can deal with everything. If it's a medical issue, you know we'll help you raise funds, if if you need to raise funds to keep that animal but speak will help our prior adopters, whatever they need to do to keep those animals. But there are so many resources out there that maybe first time dog owners don't know about like the daycares like the kennels like the boarding like the trainers that are just phenomenal these days, so Go to the website Learn more Speak for the unspoken Andrea. Thanks so much you thank you and Rusty and Rusty's foster mom. Thank you. You're a model model. I mean, he was looking at that camera. At some point. I'm watching this. I'm like anus. Yes, we'll wrap up with what matters when we come back Summers here and we're all venturing out more enjoying the outdoors long holiday weekends.

"Doesn't want to be changed. Remember when everyone knew was starting a podcast. Well I guess that's actually still happening bit. But in some ways, it's been eclipsed by everyone starting a newsletter almost every writer journalist General Internet Creator Personality I know of has a tiny letter or sub stack these days gene cocky and I talked about this phenomena a little bit on the weekend bonus episode of this show on September nineteenth would you should absolutely go listen to if you haven't yet we? discussed how email newsletters are perhaps the closest current analog of personal expression to what blogs once were in fact, and Freedman Author Co host of the podcast call your girlfriend and writer of the an Friedman weekly newsletter told Vanity Fair last year that around two thousand thirteen when personal newsletters really started taking off again, the starting one was quote fully recognized as what you do because you don't blog anymore and quotes. And it certainly solves the issue of how do I read your blog that Jason, mentioned he's heard from Newark potential readers who skipped over the blogging. Feed days just send your blog street to people's INBOXES. Now so many people have their own email newsletters that vanity fair and others declared were at peak newsletter even the Rusty Foster, the creator of one of my personal favorite. Now, defunct newsletters today in tabs has said quote peak newsletter has been happening continuously since like nineteen, eighty, six and quotes. And wired says, peak newsletter goes even further back and their lead for the story on that is yearly accurate to our times quotes. By the time Claude cut burn resigned from his post as foreign correspondent for the Times of London. He'd grown sick of the newspapers conservative streak but even as a freelancer, he continued to struggle with what he saw as the media's complacency toward the rise of ultra nationalist movements around the world. So he tried a new approach he'd start a newsletter and make himself a brand cock burns. I issue went out to subscribers in March nineteen, thirty, three end quote. Wired points to two key reasons that hordes of journalists fall in copper footsteps in the decades to come and went to independent sources of publication, both of which are relevant to today's newsletter trend as well. Accessibility of new technology and a lack of confidence in the news media. As for technology, the mimeograph which had been around since the late eighteen hundreds was finally being mass produced for consumers and praised at about the modern equivalent of five, hundred thousand dollars, and it wasn't just popular for independent journalists. It led to a boom in chapter books especially among Allen Ginsberg and his Coterie fanzines in. The LGBTQ, plus publications like the Internet and social media for us. Now, the mainstream accessibility of this technology enabled Nisha and minority populations to communicate with one another and share their stories when no major media streams would dare to do so. And it was that homogeneous entity of the major news publications that also led many journalists to part ways with their employers and start up shop as independent journalists quoting wired at the time public trust in mainstream media was wavering newspapers were making good money, but they were also increasingly turning into a monopoly from nineteen twenty three to nineteen, forty, three, the number of US towns with at least two daily newspapers dropped from five hundred to two hundred, thirty, seven according to media historian. Victor Cards Book. America's battle for media democracy at the time the popular perception was that newspapers were a bastion of conservative not liberal politics driven by the interests of big business. By the end of the nineteen thirties, many papers were fiercely opposed to the new deal and labor organizing stances that would alienate large numbers of readers as card shows the growing market consolidation paired with these ideological concerns led thousands of Americans in the nineteen forties to pack panels with titles like is the American press, really free and quotes. and. The newsletters of the thirties through the fifties really took off Claude Cock Burns newsletter was popular enough to be read by the likes of Charlie Chaplin and King Edward The seventh and was the original outlet to break the news of the threat of Francisco Franco just before the coup that would lead to his rise to power journalist George cells published what was probably the most popular newsletter of the day reaching over a hundred seventy, six thousand people at its peak including Eleanor Roosevelt Harry Truman and a large number of sitting senators newsletters were sold. In like minded bookstores and newsstands, as well as via subscription with Union subscriptions being one of the particularly powerful moods of proliferation and profit for left leaning publications and Conservative raiders eventually got in on the game too. But those modes of distribution eventually dried up and as they are want to do traditional publishers and corporations got in on the game making it much harder for independent journalists to make a living on newsletters anymore by the sixties and seventies, newsletters had to rely almost exclusively on direct mailing and one third of all independent newsletters failed each year. The. Good news in a way at the time was that the newspaper industry was actually booming while many journalists chose to go independent for ideological or passion reasons they could easily find a well paying job with the newspaper. Again, if need be whereas today, journalists are having a harder time than ever finding full-time work many have turned to newsletters. Side hustles to try to pay the bills. Meanwhile, corporations are already flooding the email newsletter market in picking off talented newsletter raiders for their own perhaps signaling the impending end of this iteration of the newsletter boom just as the past is apparently unchangeable in any consequential ways so too does it repeat itself with broad.

"My name is Delia high and I am a writer and editor of the New York so I have like a date full-time job as an editor as you need and then I've been doing some freelance writing on the side just like after work or on weekends. Yes those really crazy. I had seen the survey you go out. Originally few goes like a few weeks ago and someone from the the platform review who had kind of host hosting the survey had just reached out during the survey about museum newsletters. If you want to promote it to your readers do see that Anna's assure like I don't really know a lot about this platform and you know maybe we'll just sort of be funny to see if I could get my name on it and and so I was really surprised I kind of forgotten about it in came out a few weeks ago and had minus letter. These is links so far up there as number four is like Whoa like Oh. My God I kind of couching in my head was like Keno. It's not like it was a very scientific survey in you know it's it's kind of email newsletter platforms sort of like a small community but like still still only God this is so cool and it kind of I've been working on this newsletter for more than three years just as this passion project and it was just kind of validating to sort of see that lake essentially been working on this every day building up readership a Mike slogger friends when entering and it was very cool to see that you know I kind of reached out to my subscribers like Oh if you want to vote for these links that would be cool and people actually cared enough about Ri- Passion Project to want to show their support and the kind of really showed up and that was just Shnell so I have just over one thousand subscribers now. It's kind of this leg extension things that like I posted on twitter anyway okay and so I think there are a combination of like extending kind of like I guess like my platform to this newsletter. I have been absolutely former. friendships served between twitter newsletter. Were absolutely Oh Evan readings new center for a long time I really love it and we'll sort of distract like an email sort of friendship and then we'll lake follow each other twitter or kind of keep in touch that way so I think I think I've gone a lot of feedback in that. The sort of personality in the voice does kind of make the newsletter little bit different and and that was always my intention kind of just wanted to come off as like a friend who just loves to dish about what's going on and I'm really glad that that's kind of worked in nuts resonated with people so I started this newsletter when is an intern at Atlantic media and I was actually like one of the two interns writing our internal corporate newsletter acids really funny that you say that it's sort of the departure from corporate newsletter kind of field because because that's what I was working on a lot of time during my internship and I realized that I really loved sort of putting it together in curing information but a lot of the Times I can. I really WANNA put some personnel into because I think you know a lot of the goings on in the media industry is just like Kinda to Funnier to ridiculous Nicolas sometimes to not make white event of but I had sort of interpreters letter that goes out temporarily company so kindly Netflix can't do that which is what gave me the idea to eventually started newsletter of my own where is Sorta Kinda delivering this same sort of news but with more commentary with more personality because they just passionate about a lot of these things that I just wanted to get this crazy in here spy in kind of communicate the sort of resonance that kind of stuff had with me so I also had gotten the idea that I wanted to create the really voice your personal because I have been reading this newsletter called today in tabs ads and it was written by rusty foster whose didn't even work in media he disliked in Maine disturbed very connected into what was going on and he wrote this new center every day and I read it when I was in internal and I loved it so much because it's basically just a big roundup of here. The the biggest stories here are the biggest sort of twitter feuds. Here's what's going on basically in media in a snapshot today and he was just like totally irreverent uncertainty and funny and I loved it so much and he only did it for two years and then ended up just shutting down the shutting down the news that are kind of I think live in his own normal life without it and so that was like another that was a huge source of inspiration and then kind of asa third source of inspiration wise this sort of like new social media network that was being started by Andrew Goalless who at the time he started it as he was like a an entrepreneur in residence at the Atlantic now he's. I think he's a general manager at WNYC in who was like a huge guy fawkes morale but he had started this sort of social media network where is kind of like twitter you were only allowed to share one link every day and so the idea was that you know people would only share something up really really mattered that really represented their passions inner taste in whatever and. I really love that idea at I had signed up to be on this network. loved poking round in seeing what people are sharing in kind of loved loved how different of experience it was than versus twitter array of rings kind of scouting off at the mouth like every three seconds but the network which is literally called this like t h I s period ended up shutting down to because it was like a startup in it was able able to secure funding or figure out a way forward and so I was really sad about that but I just remember like this one. A day. Format is so interesting interesting so I think it adds a little more. I guess like way to what you ended up. Promoting people will serve this idea of like l. of all things things like why. Why are you telling me to just one thing today and so all those kind of factors combined into this one newsletter whereas like yeah. I could like send out one link day in sort of right why people should read it. because also selfishly seems like a doable workload zero every day I think kind of hilariously mistake in at some points but it's been really fun and I'm kind of very pleased that it ended up a distinct distinguishing may newsletter from the rest because there's so many others and.
