How Harvard Grad Julie Hartman Went From Liberal to Conservative
"About your nexus with Dennis. How did you hear about Dennis and how on earth did somebody who was, I think, 21 at the time end up being the youngest person to solo substitute a national radio show in America. That was a really fun day, Seb, except that halfway through my first segment, my producer told me in my ear, and this is live radio, as you know, that governor Cuomo had resigned and that I needed to announce it on air. And I thought, are you kidding? This is my first time guest hosting national radio. I'm 21 years old and this breaking news has to hit, but that's why it's cold life radio, and that's why it's so much fun. It's like the military, every plan lasts for as long as first contact with enemy. And that's why what we do is so much fun. So tell us how it all started. Yes. So I was actually a liberal for most of my life. I told you that I am from Los Angeles, and I went to super lefty private schools, and then I went to Harvard. And so I was on the left until the summer of 2020 and it was really the Black Lives Matter riots that did it for me. And seeing, you know, people who I really respect succumbing to this radical racial ideology that the United States is inherently racist and that we have to defund the police. That just really shook me. And I thought, if this is the left, this is not who I am. So I decided to go online and Google what do conservatives think about police? And they're popped up PragerU and there were several videos. I think Larry elder's video was the first one I saw about policing and from there I just went down a rabbit hole and I realized, oh my gosh, I'm a conservative. Who knew? So I ordered all of Dennis prager's books and specifically his book on hang on, hang on all of them. You need a library to order all of Dennis's books. There are about, I think there are 9 of them. And I ordered them, but we were in quarantine SAP, so I had nothing better to do than to read, reread.
Pastors, Stand for the Truth
"Pastors should be standing up for truth if you go to a church and your pastor won't talk about abortions. Then you need to go to another church. You need to find another church. I was listening to Marvin sapp, and I love Marvin SAP. If you listen to gospel music, if you care about anything, spiritual and the music realm, Marvin south is the goat when it comes to gospel music. I was listening to an interview on Vlad TV of Marvin Sam. And they asked marvins after question about homosexuality in the church. Now, I would respect him more if he just gave the explanation that the Bible says. You don't have to get in the hate nobody, disrespecting people because God is calling us the love everybody. But don't get weak when it comes to the gospel. You don't, we don't need to hear your opinion pastor. All you got to do is go to the Bible and read what the Bible says.

An Advent Prayer for Joy
"Dear savior, you are the giver of joy and new life. We celebrate you and honor you today. Thank you for your constant care for us. Thank you that we are able to access the fruit of the spirit joy because you came down to us. Thank you that at this time of year we are able to rejoice and be grateful for your precious presence with us. We praise you for coming to earth in humility as a newborn child. God, we can not begin to comprehend all that you have done for us. Just like the shepherds were simple people, lord, we are just regular individuals living life. But you have called us to greater things in your name. You have given us a purpose a calling and a mission to be part of your kingdom and to share that kingdom with others. May we not neglect the greatest joy of being your children and sharing your good news of great joy with others. Forgive us when we hide this joy and we keep it away from telling the world you tell us in Romans 1513 that you are the God of hope who fills us with joy and peace. You say in Felipe's four verse four to always rejoice. You tell us in psalm 60 11 that you make known the path of life and in your presence there is fullness of joy. You remind us that joy comes through gratitude. So Jesus we thank you today. We are grateful for the life that you have given to us for creating air, water, shelter, food, for your love, for our families, Friends, mentors, community for our jobs for our churches for the sun for the moon. For the perfectly established world to exist. For talents and for your great sacrifice on the cross, you are the creator. So we praise you for making joy. Lord for those of us who feel down and discouraged right now. When we are overwhelmed, tired or frustrated, help us not to sit in these states of mind, but depress into the gift of gratitude to do battle with the enemy and truly see even the smallest things in life as a blessing. Help us not miss the wonderful gifts from you because of hurts, losses, and discouragement. Guide us by your strength, choose joy and to fight for it each and every day. You say in psalm 30 verse 11, you have turned my morning into dancing. You have loosed my SAP cloth and clothed me with gladness. You tell us in Romans 1212 to rejoice in hope, be patient and tribulation be constant and prayer. Lord move me into joy that leads to singing.
Konstantin Kisin Shares His Report From the Field in Ukraine
"What is your report from the field? What is the morale of the Ukrainians as far as I'm concerned as an outsider, any nation that suffered Stalin's attempted extermination of 8 million people who died in the holo madore will probably fight to the last man or the last 15 year old who can hold an AK. Do you feel that Ukraine is maintained its fighting spirit in this the 9th month of the war? Well, actually, I think it strengthened that and it's been very strengthened by the fact that they're making actual territorial gains. So they're taking back territory in both north and near heart of an in the south and Hasan. We've seen from the horse's mouth actually from both Vladimir Putin and the general he appointed in charge of the operation. They both said there are difficult news about the southern units. They're pulling out of that area of Ukraine so the Ukrainians are very much boosted by that. The difficulty is that, of course, we're about to head into the autumn or the fall season when moving around becomes very difficult. Everything is mud. So I think you're going to see a slowdown. But no, the Ukrainians have been galvanized and actually Vladimir Putin's revenge attacks against civilian infrastructure and hitting playgrounds as he did with missile strikes only a few days ago. I think of galvanized the Ukrainian spirit, even though I do think it will be very difficult winter because electricity has become a problem, waters is an issue heating and so on. But generally what we see, I think, and certainly as a student history, is that of course that takes its toll. But I think in terms of morale, certainly for Ukrainians, that isn't going to SAP their morality because it makes them all feel like they're part of one thing and the great irony, of course, is in the speech that Vladimir Putin made on the eve of the invasion in February, he talked about how Ukraine wasn't really a country. And as someone who is, you know, has family in Ukraine and has been many, many dozens of times and travels there regularly. I actually would agree that to some extent that was true. Ukraine was not a united society at all prior to the invasion. Well, guess what? Now it is.

"Again so much for being here. And I can't wait to hang out in the metaverse with you. I can't wait. Thank you. Awesome. Thanks, Jen. Thank you. See, I told you Adam, we all have smiles on our face. We all have smiles on our face. You can't see them because our faces are obscured by our hologram glasses. But we are all smiling. That's right. We're smiling in real life and in the metaverse, all at the same time. It's pretty rad. It's pretty rad. Rad. We're in the metaverse using language from 30 years ago. It's coming back, I tell you. Everything. I think it's so fascinating to think about how really complex and complicated and big some of the challenges that gen tackles with her customers and how really it all comes down to, hey, if we understand each other better, we can deliver better experiences. So let's focus on understanding and let's make sure that we understand not just who our customers are. But what do they want us to know about themselves? I think that's going to be such an important question as we move into this next phase of customer experience. We have the tools. We have the ability to understand our customers at scale, particularly in a way we never could ten years ago. And it's an amazing time. We've talked a lot about AI, this season, and we're going to talk more about it this season as well. And, you know, the incredible opportunity we have to let customers not only determine their own path, but for us to understand that desire and help them achieve it is incredible nowadays. It really is. It really is so we know that you got a lot out of this and hope that you continue to use these ideas to continue to smile and spread that optimism throughout the world. Wouldn't that be awesome? I think that would be awesome.

"Want. What we're starting to help customers more with is aligning data to the supply chain all the way through to the commerce and the transaction environment all the way through to the servicing environment. And then of course, when they align all of those areas, they're able to actually personalize and create delightful, meaningful experiences. So that when the brands connect and Genie, you know this better than anyone, the right interaction creates a raving fan base. But the wrong interaction, it's four to 7 X that, depending upon the quarter in the year. So that's what we're helping our clients with today is how do they combine all of those technology tools in order to get where they need to go for their customers? Awesome. Well, you know what? This has been amazing, Jen. Thank you so much. You know, we have been asking a final question of everybody this season. And we want to ask you, what delights you about working with customers? I am enamored with the amount of innovation that I see today in the marketplace. It surpasses anything I've seen in any previous years in the technology industry. And I chose the technology industry because I knew it would be fast moving and disruptive. What I see right now is nothing short of noteworthy. So I think the future is extremely exciting and it's sure a pleasure to be able to work with clients of all sizes to help them get what they are dreaming about in the future. Another optimistic answer. I love it. I love it. I'm happy now. I know, right? Right? You can't help it. So Jen, thank you so much for being here for sharing your wisdom with our listeners. If they want to reach out to you or learn more about you or SAP CX, what are the best ways for them to do that? For sure, you can reach out to SAP CX just look us up. We're there. And you can take a look at all of the amazing products that we have. And I think that at SAP, we've been in the industry for 50 years. And many customers and companies know about us on the ERP side of the world.

"I also think that if you look at the metaverse, will you require things like virtual reality headsets, et cetera, right now, yes, who knows what the future looks like. I think that gets more accessible in the world will advance probably faster than we realize because the younger generation that's creating it, I think, has a perspective of around what they would like to do to interact with brands. But the more interesting thing that I think has happened that I would call the third pillar that's aligning right now is beat everyone that came out just during the pandemic where you had manufacturers going directly to consumers as opposed to having some sort of a business in between. So in the old days, we checked that B2B and B2C and now we talked about B to everyone and B2B to C that's the last piece that's aligning that will change how commerce is done. We'll change out transaction is done transactions are done. So it's no longer about just the actual purchase, but this phenomenon of a customer life cycle that I know some of us have been talking about in the industry for years will finally come to life. So you imagine in a metaverse if you could go back and actually show off the purse you buy it and you actually have a community of people that you identify with in the metaverse, it will create you going back to potentially purchase the next person or the next pair of shoes, et cetera using that example. You know, what's interesting about what you just said is that in a way, B to everyone actually means creating more almost micro communities, micro experiences where people can relate just to who they want to relate to, right? Like they don't have to go impress everybody, but they can go share that purse with the purse collector club that they're part of. And that actually will drive loyalty more than trying to get reaction from everybody. So it's this weird juxtaposition of, yes, you have to think about everybody. And I think the pandemic certainly accelerated that. But you also have to realize that part of the opportunity here is creating more places for people to find one another. And that's the part of, I think, the overall Internet that is so fascinating, but it's also you mentioned gaming. A lot of people don't game unless they're being social, right? Unless they're part of those communities while they're gaming. It's no longer an individual person. Yeah. And so I think there's so much around that that will be really interesting to watch and how brands handle that. And I'm curious what you're observing out there as far as there are so many competing priorities. And I know that SAP really is involved in so many different industries and just, I mean, amazing, amazing parts of our world. And so there are so many priorities around sustainability and digital transformation and all of those kind of big ideas right now that are tied directly to the experience that we're delivering customers. So what are you observing? What are you seeing that makes you excited about the future here? How are the best brands tackling those big goals? So I love that question. I think that brands right now realize the connectivity between the supply chain all the way back to the customer at the end of the day.

"Examples I heard that got me excited about this idea was how some of the barriers that people have as kind of physical humans will go away a little bit. And one of the things that I heard was this woman who uses a wheelchair, she has a car that's set up for her. And so she can drive. And she said, you know, she is always nervous about going to a mechanic because she knows about her car, but they never trust her. And so she was excited about this idea of being in the metaverse and kind of having none of those immediate things matter and having those conversations in the metaverse. And then feeling that trust level go up to the point where then you can decide, okay, this is the person I'm going to go see now in the physical world because we built trust in the metaverse. And I thought that was so interesting and such a unique way to really look at it as an inclusive part of experience as well. I love it. That's actually really inspiring to hear because that was the first thing that jumped to mind to me too was just inclusivity overall and how to bring more people into a community marketplace to buy and make decisions and have their opinions heard as these brands shape their products and experiences over the years. Well, speaking of inclusion, give us your thoughts on, you know, I'm trying to imagine the transition to the metaverse. As we've seen the transition to digital transformation, I don't know what generation you are, the generation above me is shall we say a little more challenged by technology. My generation, genius generation, is obviously talking about this. She does not like what I love her in with me. Jeannie likes to think the breach is much greater than it is. But that's okay. But you know, it's such an interesting thing to wonder, I imagine your teenagers are just going to as soon as the metaverse starts becoming more accessible or just going to jump in with all the feet. What do you think that transition is going to look like with the difference in technological adaptation and different generations and also just this markedly different type of experience. I mean, to some degree, some of what we have now is an extension of the real world a little more, but this metaverses. I guess it'll mimic the real world, but that's going to be a whole new thing in other ways. Yeah, I agree with you. I think there's a couple of different factors coming into play in the stars are starting to align. So if you look back a couple of years, let's say ten years. I don't think that Apple and Samsung and some of the other manufacturers thought that cell phones would be owned by all of the generations that exist today. And that's what we're seeing now is that cell phones really are owned by all the generations that exist. And then you see smartphones. And now you see smart TVs and then you watched the broadband Internet companies actually lay out cable that we were all wondering why they had that fat cable going out and so that they could create the experiences for on demand that exist today with some of the streaming options that are available. So there's that piece. There's the technological advancements, but the accessibility that's starting to change because the price points for some of these devices are either a part of a new subscription model or business model or these companies are realizing that if they just change their revenue model and have a different mindset, they're able to actually drive some incredible delightful experiences that customers will pay for.

"And what we can't misunderstand is that the availability of a channel to the marketplace doesn't necessarily mean that the connection is happening to the consumer. So I think those two things have to happen. I think that we have to think about the metaverse is a new channel just like TikTok or any other marketplace or connection to a customer, but it is also the availability of a channel opening up to interact and create connected experiences. So do you want to hear what I think a couple of the first ones might be? I do. Absolutely. Yeah. And I've been thinking a lot about this because I happen to have 5 children at home and I watch them. They're all teenagers. So I'm very bold to have 5 teenagers and work, and I actually think the work part is easier, frankly, than having another but when I watch them interact with the brands that they love. So as an example, a couple of them love gaming. When they're gaming, they are able in that virtual universe to actually try on backpacks and shoes and see how they feel and do they walk a little bit differently or does their character walk a little bit differently in the outfits that they've selected because there's new confidence that is bolstered in the character that they're creating. We're starting to see luxury brands that will allow customers to actually jump into something that they might create perhaps a beautiful garden or an artistic environment so that they can actually style outfits or see how a purse or a pair of shoes might go with that and outfit or a business suit that they might be looking at for a future interview that sort of thing. So that's the retail side of the house. But you imagine how this expands out to experiences and servicing, I remember during the pandemic, it was before the pandemic actually, it was really hard to get a healthcare appointment online. I mean, it was almost unheard of doctors wanted to see you face to face, but then all of a sudden during the pandemic, it's almost like someone casts their magic wand and all of the barriers that were there were suddenly gone. And we were all okay with meeting these professionals online. And I think the same thing is going to happen in the metaverse with experiences. So while retail consumer goods might be those first industries to pop in, perhaps you might have automotive next, what you'll probably see beyond that would be some of those personal experiences like healthcare, personal experiences like financial services. Could you buy a house just completely in the metaverse? I think we will be able to, in the future, and perhaps all of those people that are a part of that buying cycle actually help make that connection in the metaverse. So that's what I think that the future looks like. I love that idea of everything.

Jen, we are so thrilled that you're with us on crack the customer code and I personally am just so excited that you're here. Welcome. Thank you so much. I'm thrilled to be here. You know it's actually a beautiful day in Seattle. We don't get that many sunny days, but it happens to be that time of year, so I'm thrilled to be here with you. I'm so great to have you, Jen. And I want to dive right in and one of the things is working for SAP. It is such a big company. And you know, the complexity of the customer experience is just immense. So first I want to just start by asking you, what do you recommend to leaders out there to simplify CX to try to get your hands around it when it's so inherently complicated or at such a large scale? It's such a great question and I think that first, everyone needs to stop and actually make sure that they understand the experience that they're delivering for their customers. I read some statistic within the last year or so. And I'm sure it's changed post pandemic. But it was something like 70% plus of percentage of executives hadn't had a chance to actually demonstrate the experience within their own organization with something that they had personally experienced either in a store or online or through all different kinds of channels. And so I think the first thing that folks need to do is actually understand what experience they're currently delivering. And then look to see how they want to adjust it. So with that being a foundation, as you have businesses today, struggling to think about how they can gain a competitive advantage in the experience world, knowing where you're starting and then knowing where you'd like to go are the two endpoints that you need in order to solve for the middle.

"And now it's time for Adam and Jeannie. Adam, as you know, you are such an optimist. Am I right? Yes, actually you are. Thank you for that. Thank you for noticing. Yes, yes. I think we're both optimists in our own way when we look at the future of customer experience. And when we think about the potential of customer experience and how important it is for really the everyday lives of people. Would you agree? I would agree a 100%. It's a Brave New World in some ways, but it's also an exciting new world. It is. And I think the future is for the optimists. I'm going to trademark that. Future is for the optimists. Because the pessimists, they're going to be too worried about it. No matter what you do. Next time you trade speaking of pessimism, if you want to trademark something, maybe it should make sense. I'm just saying. Well, I do think there is so much about this work that we talk about that is challenging, and that can be overwhelming, especially when you're talking about large enterprises and complex customer experiences and all of those things. And we dig into that today with our guest, but there is this pervasive sense of optimism that I think is really compelling and something that every listener will walk away with a smile on their face today. And some great ideas. A great idea is that a 100% Jen, who you're about to introduce really shows, the opportunities that are that are technology is providing us in the sense of customer experience. And some of the opportunities, we dig into the metaverse Genie. We do. We do. There are all sorts of cool things happening.
300 Documents Found in Trump Raid
"President Trump had more than 300 classified documents at Mar-a-Lago, barks The New York Times this morning. And I said, huh? That's it. That's what they went in for 300 documents. They're like 300 documents left lying around at the DoJ outer office that have a cover on them, classified. And now, top secret, SCI sensitive compartment and information or special access programs SAP. TCI SAP's really important stuff. You can get someone killed if you let that go. But if you get a letter from Kim Jong that's been put published in the newspaper and they've been talking that the Kim Jong letter is there in the archives wanted it back. I'm not even sure that the archive gets that. Personal letter. And I'm not sure that the president doesn't get that. But in any event, that's not top secret. I don't care what they put on it. The whole letter been published. Everyone knows what's in it. There's lots of stuff that should not be lying around if it skips up. That sort of compartment and information, and only to be read in a skip facility. Since I'm compartmented information facility, it's secure against the spies of the world.
Robert Wilkie and Sebastian Discuss the Treatment of Trump
"Lemon of CNN had this to say about the raid cut 7. For the record, for the record, let's just be very clear about this. So that people don't get it twisted. If no one's after going after anyone, no one's treating anyone in the Trump administration, especially Trump, any differently than they treated other presidents. And no other president has had as egregious behavior as that, okay? So Rudy Giuliani says, no matter what he says, this is not a fascist state. This is the United States of America. Being treated exactly the same as every other president, I'm trying to remember when Jimmy Carter, George Bush, was raided in their private home. I'm thinking of somebody who ran for president, she never made it, but that's the key. The key is the 18 top secret SCI SAP documents that were on Hillary Clinton's private unsecured server to which the then director of the FBI Jim Comey said, he finds no intent. Therefore, they will not prosecute. That's the Comey standard. And explain why there's no such application of intent and also why a dirt of the FBI doesn't make those decisions. Well, the FBI director does not make judicial decisions. Those are either made by a court or told what to do by the attorney general, who is the next to the president, the chief law enforcement officer in the country. Misses Clinton was able to not only keep those records. She destroyed government property, did so with abandon, and that's at the same time she and her husband walked out with about $40,000 worth of White House furniture.
Sebastian Reflects on the Presidential Clearance System
"Served in the Trump White House as deputy assistant to the president for strategy. As a result of that political commission, yes, that is what we were called politically commissioned officers of the president. I had to go undergo a background investigation. And acquire a top secret SCI, clearance. The clearance system in America, it's different in other countries. Has a very specific genesis and purpose. The intelligence communities, the 17 big agencies, there are many, many other small ones inside various departments and armed services, but the 17 American federal intelligence agencies serve one person in government. Their job is to provide intelligence, raw, or finished intelligence, to help the president of the United States make national security and foreign policy decisions. That is the only reason they exist. In fact, the whole classification system for documents for clearances exists for the president. It doesn't serve the chairman of the joint chiefs. It is not subordinate to the Speaker of the House or the vice president. It serves the president. That is why, for example, the president can give a clearance to anyone he wishes to, likewise he can strip only he can strip a clearance from anybody he wants to. If he wants to give his best buddy from high school a top secret SCI, code word, SAP program clearance, he can. He can just click his fingers and make it happen, because this system works for him. It is predicated, it exists to serve him in protecting America as the commander in chief. Likewise, should he wish to strip someone in federal government in the executive as the chief executive, he can strip them instantly. So the idea that a president or former president is a misusing classified information is impossible. He could wrap his fish in chips in classified information. If he wanted to, he could declassify in theory every single classified document or piece of information in U.S. government, who caused chaos, but he has the power to do so.

"Do not have time to go through 500 resumes. And all that does is SAP your confidence and all you hear is nothing and you think all I'm doing is throwing things into big black holes and nobody's listening. And when you're in a place of less confidence, then you'd like to have. We personalize everything. Well, I guess I'm not good anymore. I guess nobody wants me. The truth of the matter is when you start thinking about that process of applying to things online, you are very likely getting overlooked because the recruiter is overwhelmed. And so make sure only about 12% of people still to this day get their jobs online. And so it's easy because it's seductive and easy and it doesn't feel so it doesn't feel like you're being rejected. So directly. And so sometimes we focus so much on that, that we forget that people hire people. They don't hire word attachments. They hire human beings. And so if you're putting all your eggs in that basket, it's going to take you a very long time. The second part of the black hole is recruiters. Most people do not understand the role of a recruiter. A recruiter's role job is not to find you a job. They're hired by companies to find people. And so when you reach out to recruiters, people say to me all the time. Well, I sent my resume to recruiters, and they didn't do anything for me. I'm like, of course they didn't. You don't pay them. I mean, you've got to follow the dollars. Recruiters get paid by companies to find a selection of candidates that might be a fit for their job. And so they are not, they do not have time to talk to you to network with you to answer all your calls. So we misunderstand the recruiter's role, therefore we become disappointed in them. And then, so when we say, so between online and recruiters, that's about 25% or so of people get their jobs. What about the rest of it? It's networking. And networking is the next one. But one of the things I want to make a point here too on mistaken number four is you have to follow up. If you have an interview, you've got to follow up. You got to send your thank you note. If you apply to a job online and you don't hear anything, go on LinkedIn, find somebody who works there. See if you can figure out a person to follow up with. And don't just assume no news is bad news. No matter what is going on, you have to keep this follow up loop going with your networking contacts with your interviews because it's I'll tell you one of the biggest frustrations of a job seeker is that companies are so darn rude because they don't respond. They don't and a lot of cases get back to you after an interview. And so you're left out there wondering what's going on in it is a we talk about ghosting and one of the things that we've seen in this job market is job seekers have doing things like, yeah, I'll come in for that interview, then they don't show up. Or they don't return call. Or they don't show up on the first day of work. And so the tables have turned as far as goats and goes.

"My father gets a flat tire driving out to Long Island to go look for a good fishing spot. And Long Island, especially in that area, is right off the great south bay. Which a couple of bridges later leads you to the beautiful Atlantic Ocean, fire island, Jones beach, beautiful, beautiful spots, especially back in the 60s. So gets a flat tire, starts walking down the block, calls snedeker avenue, which is named after an Indian tribe. Because Long Island is filled with algonquin and Iroquois Indian folklore. And as he's walking, he notices these model homes that look nice. Now, back in Brooklyn, it's me, my mother and my father, my two sisters, rose Lee in The Rain, living in a two bedroom apartment on 80th street, 16, 26, 80 street. Not ideal, but it was a wonderful place to be born in Brooklyn is Brooklyn and I love it to my till I die. But to think that for $24,000, he could have a home with three bedrooms and a backyard big enough for a pool. And maybe live on the water or the canal, it was too much. And my father had come up on this model home when he came back to Brooklyn, got his flat fixed, did some fishing in the area because back then, there were no bulkheads, you could walk down the street and some streets didn't even have asphalt. It was just dirt, and you get right to the great south bay, you could walk into the great south bay. Clam go from muscles, cramps, fish, and my dad did just add and came back and brought a few fish home and some clams, and he told my mom, I got much more for you than what's in this SAP. There's some homes. We need to look at. And they went back a week later or so and he showed my mom and his father, my grandfather, who was still alive back then. And my aunt Mary, his sister, where we could live, and you can imagine these people who rarely left bensonhurst Brooklyn. What this new idyllic community looked like. And it was beautiful.
Alex Berenson Talks About Weed and It’s Crushing Effect on Society
"With us right now is Alex berenson, who deserves a lot of credit for his research throughout the entire pandemic and kind of being a contrarian data focused voice, which I think he deserves just our praise because he became a great cost for him personally and professionally Alex welcome back to the program. Charlie, thanks for having me. Alex, I want to talk to you about a different book though than your commentary on COVID. And it's just interesting because our audience has mixed views on this. My view is pretty well known. I'm not a fan of marijuana or weed, I think that there's an untold story around the consumption of marijuana that isn't always highlighted in the media. You wrote a book called tell your children the truth about marijuana mental illness and violence. Tell us about the arguments you make in the book. Tell us why you wrote the book and did you come into like beginning with any sort of opinion before you went on your research journey? Sure. So tell your children came out in 2019 about three and a half years ago now almost. And I wrote it over the previous couple of years, my wife is a psychiatrist, a forensic psychiatrist, actually. So that means she deals with the criminally mentally ill. Mainly. And she had seen a lot of patients who had committed crimes under the influence of cannabis. And sometimes other drugs too, but and sometimes alcohol. But cannabis really was the thread that was common in all of these. So she encouraged me to look at this connection and, you know, I'd been a reporter for The New York Times for ten years and I'd covered mainly the pharmaceutical industry, but I really didn't have much of a view about cannabis legalization. I'd used a handful of times in my life, but it was not a drug that I'd used a lot or cared particularly about. Either way. And what I found was that she was right. You know, of course she was right. She treated these people. And knew what she was looking for and knew what had happened. But there's a huge body, a huge and growing body of scientific research that canvas really is dangerous to a lot of people's mental health. It's not just that it can SAP your motivation or make you sort of fat and lazy, these sort of these tropes about stoners. It's that if you use too much, especially at a young age, if you started a young age, if you start in your teens, your early to mid teens and you use heavily. And it is addictive, so people will, you know, a lot of people wind up using more than they think they're going to use. You can have psychotic episodes, and you can sometimes some people probably people with a genetic predisposition, although it's not always clear, may develop permanent psychosis, a permanent psychotic condition known as

BBB Includes Major Investments in Housing Affordability
"There is in the House version of the build back better Bill, a $170 billion for affordable housing and homo SAP. I've spent much of the show today replaying my interview from Friday's podcast with Michael shellenberger, the author of San Francisco, why progressives run cities a man of the left, he studied homelessness in Seattle, Portland, San Francisco and LA, it would be a disaster. The problem will only get worse if that money is passed by the Senate, where is the build back better version of the bill right now in the Senate, Jake Sherman? Well, a few things to note, I have to imagine that housing money will be in there that's very important to progressives and very little as we've discussed very little going to change in the Senate. But here's what I would say. Kirsten sinema and Joe Manchin are both saying both of them that they don't believe this bill is going to pass until 2022 and that's probably 22 and that's all you need to know because they are the key here. And if whatever they say goes, I would say that is as simple as it is. So at some point pretty soon, Chuck Schumer is going to have to contend with that reality and kind of get wrapped his head around what's next. Now, on the other hand, there's a lot of uncertainty about what will end up in this bill. Number one, the immigration provisions, you are just all are just very uncertain at this point. And I have to imagine that in the next couple of days, maybe a week we will hear from the parliamentarian nonpartisan kind of balls and strikes arbiter of what can be in a reconciliation bill about what could go in. So that is kind of what we're looking at this week when it comes to BBB.

the most powerful military in history of the world Don't worry about whether we're going to be more powerful but you do have to worry about is whether or not they're going to engage in activities or put them in a position where there may make a serious mistake It's on the president was asked then would he defend Taiwan And he said yes straight up blunt one word yes I have the memory John Of misses Shanghai shek coming into Congress I remember vaguely seeing it on TV a million years ago And this is something that's haunted us for 60 or 70 years is all sorts of great great scholarship on that And all I can say is a sensitivity here absolutely extraordinary We've had secretary chow out at the milken conference and John she from Taiwan visibly shakes when I talk to her about this pledging to protect Taiwan going on to say this was the quote from the president Tom I don't want a Cold War with China I just want to make sure China understands that we're not going to step back We

Norway's sovereign wealth fund And they're in the middle of a shift because they might have to divest some of their big carbon emitters like Exxon and Chevron They had a new government elected last month and as this new government comes in center left government they're going to push Norway's biggest well fund in the world's biggest owner of stocks to change its holdings So that's like that causes some real wake And the other thing is they are excited about getting other wealth funds other sovereign wealth funds on board even like PIF out of this Saudi Arabia which would be insane if you had ten or $20 trillion worth of Simon well funds say we're going to divest from our carbon emitters So I'm excited to talk to him as well but as Tom said we have so many earnings that we can't ignore

Our colleagues and Edwards and Mark cardinal spoke to the Barclays CEO just Stanley earlier this morning I mean I think overall the investment bank had a had a very solid quarter In investment banking

key fixed income business which has been such a strong point for Barclays in the past It's missed estimates again is down You see this is cyclical and not something they need to be worried about There's no cost cutting that area no plan to restructure it There's no particular plan to kind of fix that business You don't see it as needing to be fixed Right now the investment bank is the most

"Experienced versus the Internet have nots Where I went to in the Arkansas Delta which is about a couple hours outside of Little Rock very remote very rural parts high poverty rates low density population and only recently one of the Internet providers I talked with had just turned off their dial up Internet which they had been charging 50 cents per hour since 1995 It's just a different world You don't realize that they can't stream Netflix there They can't do zoom They can book a COVID appointment if they don't have Internet access And so what I want to show with the story is what it looks like on the ground as Washington considers tackling this digital divide with the infrastructure spending bill which is making its way through Congress right now is through the house as well And they're considering spending tens of billions of dollars on broadband deployment subsidies and giving us potentially the best shot in many years at really narrowing the gap And the big debate is how do we actually do that What technologies do we invest in What's the best bang for our buck And the story shows what it's like what the reality is like in places like rural Arkansas and what you saw in the catskills of how much it takes to actually close that divide with infrastructure on the ground Well how much does it take Because in order for my Friends and I actually spent a lot of time Saturday night talking to them about this because this was the first time I had visited them in the 7 years that they've lived up there that they had high speed Internet Every other time they've relied on a satellite to actually get them Internet access and they were capped at 15 gigs a month which is really nothing I mean people use 15 gigs a month in a day if they're streaming something high definition or in a couple of days And I wonder about the way that technology has changed because they actually got cable laid down which is very expensive But you see companies like Starlink Elon Musk's satellite company being able to offer potentially lower cost solutions So what's the technology needed here How much does it cost So if the Arkansas delta the big debate is how much do you spend on fiber which is the gold standard That's what you have with every high-speed Internet pretty much in heavier wealthier urban part of America at this point Or do you invest in sort of a riskier technology like Elon Musk's star late satellites which orbit lower part over the earth and SAP coverage from space there's 5G home Internet which is sort of a home based version of what you get from say T mobile or AT&T or Verizon Or there were fixed wireless tools which like citizen broadband radio service which is actually what a bunch of the local Internet providers and Arkansas are using these days It's a wireless spectrum historically used by the U.S. Navy to sort of beam radar transmissions and the FCC has repurposed that spectrum for commercial use allowing local players to beam Internet coverage using radio antennas which sounds kind of old school but it works for up to 6 miles It's not as fast or reliable as fiber but it gives decent speeds and cost of fraction of physically wiring up every home in America And so that's really comes down to this cost benefit analysis of enrollment Arkansas I'm told it can cost 50,000 or more to get a fiber optic cable late into the ground and that's not including trenching costs or construction et cetera and so how much are you willing to invest in that versus the far cheaper but maybe less reliable technology that might not be relevant in ten years That might need to be eventually replaced in fiber He Austin what's the other side of this coin here The economic cost of not having these more than 100 million Americans connected with broadband Internet Yeah it's a tragic cost I'm not sure if it must be difficult to quantify but it's something that the reason there has been more emphasis on this subject is because the COVID-19 pandemic prior to the pandemic a lot of folks had said that any infrastructure Bill that came up it was always about investing in roads or bridges or railroads And when I talked to the rural broadband association they just kept saying hey it's also in addition to roads and bridges It's also broadband And that didn't change the Congress's perspective on that didn't really change until the COVID pandemic when suddenly they realized employers couldn't have people working from home because they couldn't access zoom or kids could work from home and do their homework because they didn't have Internet access But that's why this debate is really coming to the forefront right now in the infrastructure Bill of trying to solve that digital divide because man we saw that during the pandemic that the U.S. is just not prepared for a remote society That's Bloomberg news technology reporter Austin Carr So many images at the beginning of the pandemic when kids went to remote learning of kids outside of McDonald's or in Austin talked about outside of community center because that's where high speed Internet was the image of kids having to have fans on them because they were outside in hot weather I mean it's a stark reminder of where we are as a country when it comes to the digital divide Exactly It's definitely too a must read You're listening to Bloomberg businessweek coming
