"Is i believe me. I know about the jets thing for really long time. He's well documented. But there's a party that says it's gotta be fulfilling knowing how many people you're impacting. Because you have a personal brand and part of that personal brand is influencing dare. I say the word influence influencing other people impacting other people. By what you say. And so yeah. There are a lot of business people not a lot but there there's billionaires that are created that are under the radar billionaires because they start they owned businesses they buy businesses and resell them. And what. I'm hearing you say which i'm not disagreeing with you. I'm just asking like. Do you think he would walk away. From the impact and the influence city has to buy companies are low price build them back up and sell them or do you think he's gonna do you walk and chew gum at the same time. Here's what i think. I think he exactly like your analogy. Chew gum and walk at the same time. that's fascinating. Eat his cake. You know and it's interesting. I never heard that expression before. Maybe i have a long time ago. American stuff. I guess but anyways what i believe is he is not going to walkway. But he's going to distribute it. So here's what i think. He's doing basically through v friends his new initiative vecon. He's gonna pump up a bunch of other people in this community. And they're going to be like gary ambassadors for him kind of like walt disney world. Mickey mouse characters. Play up to walt. He's the same thing. He's the mastermind behind it correct. And then he'll spend less time on his own personal brand still spend time on it but i don't think personally. I don't think he's going to go to budapest anymore. I don't think he's going to go to clark time. Consuming i mean that to be on the speaker circuit. I'm sure it's an invigorating. And you're meeting tons of people and it's you're creating content the entire time and. I'm sure there's a lot but you do. I'm sure it also you could burn out right. And so the and nothing lasts forever so the cadence in which he's done it will likely change but what you're saying. He's going to reallocate his travel. Speaking time to be more of the woody laffy that to be the be the wizard. The wizard of oz. Right or the walt disney. Who's pulling all the strings. I think it's a super cute. That used the word. Burn out in a conversation on gary. Vs if gary understands that burnout is the funniest thing. it's like. What what's he's like. What's up burnout. Toast getting birds or something like that guy's gonna work seventeen hours a day every day until the dead and he's going to do the small industry what he loves to do right but anyways going back to your point. You're absolutely right especially on the time piece. I think what he's going to do. Strategically is going to focus a lot of his keynotes on the us market. Because that's what the audiences that's what the market is. That's what the impact is. That's where everyone's watching all the hot places or like five hours away like it's not complicated. You just make those flights and dan what he's going to do is he's going to use that extra time and build up those undervalued brands. 'cause at the end of the day going back to what you said about the billionaire piece you're right..

"And that's immigrant mentality. I totally relate to that as well retiring by mom's stuff like that so when he jumped into the wind business at a very young age. It's pretty much. All he did for us twenty stat and watching the new york jets and the other piece around the jets that supremacy. Because for those that don't know his goal now. His ultimate goal is to buy the new york jets and to make them win the super bowl which we knows impossible but never bet against gary. I think that's a a big lesson from today's episode but the key is the reason he's so fond of the jets and of people know this when he was seventy eight years old. His mom stitched him. She stitched him a new york jets jersey because they couldn't afford jersey and it's his most prized possessions. Like a little mini jersey that six year old so he has a lot of emotional attachment to the jets and also he was introduction to american culture so what. He didn't to speak english a lot of the kids around k. You wanna play football. And he was like goggle as he says and he would just play football. And that's how we get in the same way you kind of have that emotional appeal with baseball. It's the same thing same with me. Like i'm a huge. Ufc fan but ever since like last year. I've started watching you see a lot. But i understand why i'm such a big fight fan because i did martial arts for five years but i never watched fights competitively until last year so we all have those emotional attachment things right. Always appreciate you jamal. They ceriga andrew muslim. But the idea is that it's data emotional appeal that really got him fond of the jet. So that's where he spent ten percent of his time in his twenties. The other ninety percent of his time was spent building the family business so he grew his dad's company from three to sixty million dollars in revenue and most of that growth was through the social media and the internet. It's the early days in the late. Nineteen ninety s. He had an idea of shipping wine online and bringing this delivering. He was like one of the first online ecommerce websites at the time was huge wine library dot com but the other pieces well is he was super on email so back then email was cool. Open rates like ninety percent plus so he sold a lot through that he was super early to google edwards. As well in two thousand and three. When google ad words were dirt cheap so pretty much took over the internet. Let me stop you real quick. I want everybody to listen to the theme. You're hearing he was very early. He was very early he was very early so just a theme to think about reoccurring theme in gary's life is that he's been early to so many things to carry on absolutely..

How do you know if the timing's right. Give us your thoughts on how you can give your best shot at determining whether or not your timing is ideal for whatever it is. You're doing. I wish i had a silver bullet for you buddy but the truth is nobody knows. It's very difficult either. The smartest found the smartest person knew everything about your industry and still fail. I'll give you the best example of this does a great shopping app. Can you remind me the name. Is you know where you can order deliveries. You've been hurt. Thank you so much instrument exactly so instruments idea wasn't new in the late nineteen ninety s. There is simple very similar idea to insta- card. There is two billion dollars. I've got the name of the startup but it failed because the timing wasn't right nobody really had mobile phones. the broadband internet speeds berg. Fast enough and people didn't really want to buy groceries off the internet really quickly. And then the idea resurfaced ten years later now instruments multibillion dollar company. Same idea timing was different. That's why by the way. Jeff bezos who arguably in my opinion is the best entrepreneur of our generation by a very long shot. He was very strategic about what he sold on the internet. I do you know what he sold. As a fund lewis course books man right so people donor says. Why did he choose books. People just stopped the logic like. Oh yeah it's his books. No the reason he started with books. Billy is because the cost of each ship is very low and there's a clear competitive advantage to having an online bookstore that having a library. So let's i wanted to buy a tv. It makes sense from beat it like potentially go to electronics store versus by on the internet. Spending a thousand dollars or two thousand three thousand each..

"Everything else is fair game. Which is why tesla has really broken. The mold when it comes to vehicles. I mean literally everything that tesla has done and stood for is to not take what already exists and then make it a little bit better instead. It's like hey what if we were to build this from scratch. What would it look like. And that's why the vehicles are as Inducing as they are because people get into test that's unlike any other driving experience they've ever had so explain to me the tie in and then.

What are you believe that most people disagree with you. On and then the effect is first principles thinking and how that idea gets built up from scratch. Super simple example. Get with tesla any. Npr's a whole chapter. On just tesla on why dot specific energy company was successful when all other energy company. You didn't wasn't successful. And what tussle argued or rather elon. Musk is the truth that he believed in is that energy companies or rather in the manufacturing space in the vehicle manufacturing space would only be successful if we focus on people who can afford really expensive electric cars in tailoring and experience through those consumers rather than creating something generic that is attacks better than the competition. That was the truth that he believed that most people did agree with the tot and the reason that is true is because in that area. A lot of people building energy companies. Billy weren't engineers dera business. People who just raised a lot of money because they talked really well and all of their companies failed because their product was ten times better than the market. Roswell tesla did what ilan did is he had a very specific insight about the industry where he said no. Let's focus only on the high end car. Market service that i right go to the leonardo dicaprio's of the world have them by one hundred fifty k.

"Story not just the founder so at scott did exceptionally well is. He didn't just talk about his personal story. Ray said okay. I was a nightclub need. There's a lot of focus there. But he also celebrates all the other stakeholders around charity water. Here's a quick example of that nora's an eight-year-old girl who gave eight bucks. Charity water basil. The story went is. She wanted to give money to charity. Organization went to her. Mom said bobby. How much money do i have my big. And then her mom looked at it and it said eight bucks and she donated north donated. Sent the envelope with like the change to charity water and said. Hey i'd love for this. To cleveland knows how you're smiling there right telling the stories of other people. That's a true story so dirty water winter house filmed her made a whole commercial. Called the eight dollar campaign raised a million bucks. It was absolutely crazy and amazing right. So there's a lot we can learn from stop. I love that man. Okay so you find him through lewis and then you're fascinated. I wanna get into his book in a minute before we do when you heard him. You mentioned a few things which impress you problem solving that he changed your mind abou how you solve problems world problems or big picture problems you human problems any made you change your mind where you used to think it can only be solved using business capitalism things of that nature but you now actually be can be solved through a nonprofit. What else impressed you if you could go back and you maybe a year into listening to louis and you found that episode. What else stood out from that. I experience listening to him being interviewed. And then we'll get into the book right and let's double click on the problems because i'll give you an insight actually never talked about publicly. What scott convinced of that ended up being wrong on and he was right and what he and ultimately convinced me of is the following billy. There's some problems in the world that you don't need nonprofits for i'll give you the best example the problem. I'm soften public speaking for the world. At the end of the day. I can sell funded pretty much entirely. I'll explain why it's knowledge eighty percent of its knowledge. Democratizing that knowledge. Hey billy this video. Hey john check out this video.

"It like i don't need it. You know it could be great. Could be nice to have. But i'm just not going to deal with by in. This is true of everybody in the company. So if you're marketing person if it's marketing product like you're going to have three top priorities that you're gonna need and if it's not in those three if it's number four or five or god forbid six no it's still pretty high priority number six. You means nothing to them. They're never going to really invest in it or get around to using it so you need to find out. What are those priorities off. What do they you know. What would what will you know. A lot of people like it's revenue. Like i need revenue if you can show me away to jet increase my revenue by thirty percent. I'm there with you or i. We need to make this more efficient. This is totally inefficient process. Wasting so much time. If that's one of your top priorities you're nailing it for them or they they have some Problem that they can't solve like there's literally a problem disconnected one of their systems. Whatever you're coming in and fixing you need to figure out. Is it on their top three this so instead of trying to sell them your product instead of trying to show them your product at the beginning start talking to them and most importantly start listening to them asking the right questions listening observing what they do what they're going after then you can start to understand whether they're even your customer and if they are your customer are you on their radar like arguing. That humphry love the thompson. Hof thanks so much for sharing. You know speaking of venture capital in speaking of solving the pain points. We couldn't have a podcast with you without getting your opinion on the future in your opinion how things are my first question to you is regarding the state of the union of venture capitalists saying.

"There's other people who even the smallest thing can induce a huge amount of stress. Well maybe you should not be the ceo not the founder. Maybe you should join somebody else's startup. it is already going along. You can get the same thrill without all the agony and anxiety so that is my starting advice when you are considering doing a startup. It makes perfect sense. And what a great lead in to a topic that we're going to get into in a minute. Which is building your initial team. Because you've highlighted. just how critical that peace is component. Is i wanna make sure brennan if you want to chime in at any point man don't hesitate. This is our very very. i live with a guest. So we're going to figure out the best way to operate here but One question before we get into the building of the team is the something that you call the devil's candy and how we really should be mindful and avoid the devil's candy. Can you tell us what exactly that is. There's a couple of things. That are the devil's candy and i called the devil's candy. Because it's really tempting like the devils holding out some sweet thing for you and you you want it so badly will number. One is borrowing money from family and friends like it seems great. Seems great to your family and friends because they are absolutely sure. You are going to be the next unicorn that ipo and they are all going to be rich because they're not investors or because they just love you they care for you and they believe in you so if you take their money. This is a really really dangerous thing. And i will tell you why first of all they aren't experienced investors. Most likely. Maybe you have an uncle that is well. That's the venture capitals. You can take that uncles money but still remember. Know the odds are. you're not gonna succeed. You odds are they will not get their money back. What happens it look forward. What happens at thanksgiving. What happens when you go home. You know everybody is happy when you're doing well but when you lose their money money is a funny thing it can really drive a wedge between people between best friends between even between family members. Do what the rest of your life to have that distance between you. Even if it's unspoken like a lot of people won't make you feel guilty about losing their money but they won't forget it. I can guarantee you that it's different so i tell people look you can't get a qualified investor. Somebody who is an angel investor out there who isn't related to you. Who is your best friend. Invest in your company. Why should you go ask your family. Who literally they don't know what they're doing and they're doing it for the wrong reason. It's so you you should like if you have a real business with a real business model. That has a chance of succeeding. You darn well should be able to get somebody else to invest in this. You shouldn't have to rely on your family and france. And when if god forbid your company does go down in flames. That is the time you need your family and friends by your side supporting new helping you if you.

"Couple of housekeeping. Things is we don't again. We don't know where we're going but we do welcome any feedback. Including what do we call this show that we do in a reoccurring basis what we call it. I mean yes. We both have names. That begin with the beast. I'm sure there's going to be a lot of like b squared and this and that billion brennan were open. So what do we call this thing number two. How frequently should we do it number three win. Should we do it We did this one starting in about eight. Pm pacific so it's a little bit on the late side for brendon so figuring out timing days what it's called and then most importantly what do you want to hear from us. What topics can we explore. Were happy to go down any direction that you want. And so one of the beautiful things about this as we get feedback from you and so i wanna give brendan the final word here. And i'm going to ask you brendan. Where do you see us talking and these sorts of conversations. Why did you want to do this. And what do what inspires you and excites you about this new collaboration working together here on lincoln slash youtube slash twit shaw slash anywhere. That we do make sure this feed is airing. What's most important to you and anything that you want to share. As as a last word and then we'll close it down first of all be scored as an excellent name. I think we should go with that. That's pretty good actually. We'll do we'll call it. Be squared by billy. Samoa and the other guy us we'll do that. I think that's going to be good so already locked at n word colored liquid bat or we could get other ideas but the other piece you know. I think what's excited me. The most billy now that i think about it is this idea accountability. So when i started my youtube channel this was right to two and a half years ago. I was miserable for the first seven months. 'cause it was just me literally moving a camera sitting down presenting forcing myself to do it because i knew the seven people who were expecting that content. Who really wanted to hear from me. So i always kept doing have really didn't like it. But then when i met when i had the budget for danny my best friend when my buddy is to videos with me like he would do the creative process and i'd pay him pretty good money to do it. Concentration got so much more fun because it wasn't just it wasn't brandon filming again. It was oh. I get to fill the danny that we're getting lunch after but we'd get like ten videos done and he would just look at me like whoa you like really good cameras like oh really just want to get lunch..

"Of disabled people. I want to talk about internal able is in a in a bit but but before we get there. Let's talk about this concept of of amplifying voices because i really love amplified. Is the name of my club on on clubhouse. I'm a big believer in the power of amplifying voices. I'm a obviously a podcast. Sir and i believe that through the power of people sharing the world can change in. There's so many layers to that that we could talk for hours about it. But what does what have you found to be the most successful or the most impactful ways in which you've been able to achieve your mission with diverse ability and helping people elevate and raise an amplify their voices. Yeah thank you for that question. So so yeah. Diverse abilities mission is to amplify disabled voices. And the reason. Why comes back to where we started. This conversation are origin. Stories are so humanizing and there is a level of vulnerability in them that allows us and vulnerability is what creates connection. So through my work there is someone named dr vivian. Ming and she has said that the best way to tackle any type of bias is surreal. Life continuous experiences with people who challenger stereotypes. So i'll repeat that again. Because i think it's really important. So the best way to tackle any type of bias and in my case it's disability bias. At the best way to tackle any type of bias is the real life continues experiences with people challenger stereotypes so most of the time. That's accomplish the work right what we're realizing as those numbers haven't changed. I want to do what i can change them. But how can i create environments. Where i'm creating those real life. Peer to peer interactions between disabled a non-disabled people so for us you know now in a pandemic environment that's happening through online community. But where. I saw it to be most impactful. Pre-coded was diversity. we're really just hosting events. We were kind of icon. We were we were a meet up that hosted events everywhere everywhere that we could because what we found was that when we bring people together you know you can call them disabled professionals or disabled people and non disabled people together for just in the same space Our signature event is called diversity unplugged and in the past i would equate them to like a moth storytelling night or like a mini. Ted a mini tedtalk. Where you really get to dig into someone story for five or ten minutes but then afterward right it's not a stage in an audience you get.

"I knew how to do was how could i make myself look more non-disabled so that i'm not causing shame in my family unit but what it ended up doing was just amplifying and compounding shame within myself everything about my existence or at least how i saw it to my mom. I was just like the epitome of shane and again so much of the work. I've been doing over. The past year is let me think about all of the areas of my life. That i felt like i had shame or i still have shame. And how can i shed a light on them so that don't let that have power over me anymore because it really did have a detrimental impact my mental health. I went around. you know. Everyone is like tiffany. Your smile so great. But i literally went around for twelve years being like i'm fine. I'm fine and so. When i said that i was saying that with a smile on my face for your listeners. Who can't who can't see the video but that's a really hard place to be as a kid who is not having the space to breathe like to give breath to something that she like one of the other things. That kind of baffles me about this car accident is that me and my sister who was awesome the car and one of my brothers. We saw what happened. We were there moments before my dad passed away and we couldn't actually interestingly enough. I never talked to my siblings. A my siblings. Who are in the car with me. I'm never talked to them about that about you. Know what were you thinking. What were you feeling. Have you spoken to them sense or when you when you say that. Do you mean you immediately didn't talk to them about it. So now it's been. What is this twenty. Twenty one will be twenty four years since the carson. We still haven't talked about the car accident as a family. And i will highlight and maybe you found this senior research as well. I a couple years ago. I i got interviewed for a piece in the huffington. Post called what. It's like to be asian and disabled in america. And i remember getting interviewed by wendy liu who wrote the piece and it was so cathartic because i had never been able to talk about this intersection before because my family's never talked about the car accident and in me creating diverse ability. There was a part of this. That was my healing journey right. This journey to just belong and a couple years ago right before i turned thirty. So we're recording this right around the time. I'm about to turn thirty. Three rape afraid turned thirty one and a trip with my mom and this is all of this is public and my mom said that she was ashamed. She was ashamed that i wasn't still working in investment banking. She thought the work that i did with diverse ability was monkey business and she just wanted me to go back and get a real job and for someone who gave me life right. That just broke my heart. It was also not surprising though. We have a little bit with an asian cultures there. Is this tough love. which is you know. Think like my mom grew up. During a war she was in it. Right and that intergenerational trauma that does pass through by it was this kind of no nonsense like you gotta figure it out. And there's a story i'm remembering from my rehabilitation does in the hospital for three weeks. And then i had to be home schooled for four months because i also shattered a couple bones. My leg and my family ended up relocating my bedroom to the living room. So i wouldn't have to navigate stairs but no one.

"Informative are kind of done for people really just want entertainment and this really when probably in the middle of reality was really just like really kind still not even taking off it was like really kinda cemented. I think at that point foundation for where programming was headed. And so i'm getting told no by people that are actually paying me a check for for the very thing that i do want air. So it's like this juxtaposition. That i really want people to understand because like imagine me on the inside already being told. What do you telling people on the outside trying to even try to get into the door. And the reason why. I'm bringing that up is because when you're being told those knows you can then start to change who you are or you could start to want to pull back and not lean into your uniqueness because maybe you think oh. Something's wrong with me. Let me change this about me. And what i realized was i was going live on periscope at the time live streaming and then facebook live and i was straight like. There were a couple of times. When i was so angry that it was turning into tears and it was turning into sobbing and i wasn't cutting off the stream and i was just trying to tell people like to me. Just was a teachable moment. And that's why wanted to see it but to my family members they were. Like what the hell are you doing. Especially my dad and my uncle. Dude what are you doing they are. Everybody already thinks you made it. You're already on the today show. You're hanging out with al roker and all this other stuff like everybody already thinks you made it. Why are you on care mcrae talking about. Why is it so hard to try to get your pilot out there. So they didn't understand it but what's happening is in the stream tons of people are rooting for me. Tons of people are saying thank you for being so open and honest tons of people are saying this is what it really is like to try to get your thing out there. Thank you for showing us the struggle in the pain not just the result and so for every one comment. That's telling me you shouldn't be doing that. I'm getting thirty other comments. That are telling me. This is exactly what i need to hear. I can't thank you enough. And so i think that uniqueness for me was learning that oh somehow it doesn't bother me at all to not play. The i made it game and i need to look good and i can apply a filter on my life somehow for me..

Mario as you stepped into your uniqueness. You did not compromise who you are. You did not try to be anyone other than you and that is what you now share with other people you talk about the power of understanding your unique self of understanding. What your superpower is what. Your gift is what you're if factor is is is that unique spirit within you. Hugh talk a little bit about why you feel that. So important billy man because like you know like even listening to you. Do this do this interview. It's clear to me. And i'm not saying that's because i'm on the show i just went. I just went. Say it but it's clear to me that this is unique to you that you really enjoy this that you really cherish as probably a really good word. I think you cherish the research. The process the uncovering. I think you get as giddy. I think you think of this as you. The listener more than you. The interviewer and i think you're trying to get just as guilty as you hope you're into your audience is getting based off of your interviews because of the level of research to the level of interest the thought provoking questions and how you're tying it all in. This is an easy. This isn't just some random conversation that can just happened. I can tell this has been thought through to what degree. I don't know i haven't been beside you but i can tell it's been thought through. I've been in the business for a long time. I know and that to me signals. A lot in terms of your uniqueness and how you are showing through your work how you are different. And i think that's a really important whether that's something that you were picked on as a kid for others. That may be listening like that. Very thing that. I got picked on that curly hair. Whatever is one of the things that kind of differentiates me. So i'm not. I'm not gonna like flatten it or trying to straighten it. I'm gonna lean into that right. And so i think we run from the things that can make that can really enable our superpower to shine because it is a fearful thing to do to step into something that feels super vulnerable. But that thing that feels super vulnerable is usually the thing that will unlock a major opening for you. And so trying to take small steps with that vulnerability so that you can start getting warmer and warmer to being even more open and more expressive. I think is really important. My unique this was allowing people to really see see almost into my soul so there were a few years ago when we were shopping. Our show and here i am. I'm on the today. Show as a paid contributor. I'm actually paid to appear. I don't i'm not just therefore the exposure. I'm actually getting a check and i had to make one hundred and thirty five appearances a year. Contract with nbc. So i'm making a lot of appearances On on on the network. Jerry m on the network paid people love me because they're paying me to be on air. I go and pass them on. Show idea not that i expected to be a shoo-in because i'm being paid on air. But they told me like no. We don't think anybody cares about this kind of idea or the way you're presenting it. No one really is into the oprah days of like taking notes and having positive programming..

Sea Level Rise a Major Threat to San Francisco

"All over the bay Area by 2050 In less than 30 years. Projections show floodwaters swamping bridges, infrastructure and entire neighborhoods. KQED science reporter Kevin Starke has been following this story as part of the Pulitzer Centers nationwide. Connected Coastlines Reporting Initiative and Kevin East Palo Alto specifically, is one community really susceptible to sea level rise in the Bay Area. How much of a threat is this? Well, already Half of the city lies in a federal flood zone. It's bound by water on three sides, the Bay and the San Francis Skeeto Creek. And it's located in the South Bay, where tides of the highest during bad storms the city already regularly experience is flooding. The average high tide in the bay is going in one direction. It's up. Scientific projections show up to a couple feet of sea level rise by mid century, and then the rate of rise could dramatically increase beyond that, so this is truly an existential threat for the community and his power out there. Great and this isn't just about sea level rise right? There are larger social forces at play here, too. Absolutely. The community is roughly two thirds Latino, has a sizable population from the Pacific Islands. In fact, we interviewed people who emigrated to East Palo Alto from places like Samoa and Tonga, in part to get away from flooding and climate change on the islands on me to find that it is an issue here along the bay, so the effects of climate change disproportionately impact communities like East Palo Alto. Many people in the community that we spoke with talk about the cost of housing. There's been a lot of pressure. There is Facebook and Google and other big companies have built campuses nearby. Yet East Palo Alto is this

Because it's the way we dress down here like today. I've got on shorts flip flops and a flannel shirt that makes no sense and if the fashion police came by most of us would be arrested. So that is. Let's get into today's program because you end. Our guest are both hanging out in a very cold place in the country right now when it's perfectly appropriate to do a hot podcast. How's that that sounds great because it is twelve degrees right now. Right things that. I'll i'll do my best not complain about having to put the top up. Okay hey seriously. Riley joins us today and she is a testimonial to a combination of the grapevine and social media. And here's the fun aspect of how i got to know riley. A good buddy of mine in boston sent me an. I am and a link to her work and said hey you need to go talk to her so a phone call later. That opened the door to this michigan based documentary photographer. She's an art director. She's an accomplished author. She's a big believer especially in themed projects like her diners of new york. Which is a a personal favourite of hers. And i happen to love the just to if you've lived in the new jersey new york area. Then you know that diners are just an incredible Concept she's a national geographic explorer. She's a fulbright fellow and her work has been published in numerous magazines and is in the permanent collections of seven. Different museums nine. Oh there's probably nothing. Riley can't photograph but as a journalist. What i love most about her work is. it's just about the simplicity of life And sometimes obviously more complex than a complex and less simple in any event riley. If i haven't screwed up something in technology here welcome to the mind. Your own business podcast. Thanks for having me well. It's good to have you here and i really am. I'm outnumbered today. Because i'm always complaining about the weather or or making shamir aware that she's in the coldest place in the country right now and now. The two of you can share that misery law like complaint. It's nice to have some company. Let me tell you and and riley. I'm so excited to chat with you because it sounds like you've had a very interesting journey. And we were kind of chatting in the pre interview chat and it was interesting to learn that you are not originally from michigan. But from the lemme say this right. American samoa correct yes. Correct soren and raised. That's somehow you ended up here in michigan. Where we're just happy to be in the double digits today and so kind of. Let's kick things off by having you kind of tell us about your background. how you ended up doing what you're doing today and just how you got here well since you mentioned where i was Warren raised american saw. I think that would be a great place to start off so you guys might know. American simul from a number of things like you know american football players to you know a variety of other cultural touch points. But you know the first person to make american samoa on the mainstream was the anthropologist margaret mead and some of her photographs and writings about american samoa. so you know and Independent som- so you know. When i was young american sama as i told you earlier is the third wettest is place in the world gets a tremendous amount of rain and one of the things that happens is that mold grows on just about anything including photographs and vhs tapes. You know back when there while people are using those so we had a you know a a system where we would take photographs When our film was ready would send it off to get you know in the mail to get back in the day and we get our photographs back. My mom would fill a photo album and then she sent it off to our grandparents the store because if we kept them on island they would mold in a number of years. We'd have no relics of our family. History so i became kind of fascinated by sort of documenting a place in time and the fact that where we were from. We couldn't really keep our photographs if we wanted them to actually survive more than say three years so that sort of drive to document is really becoming a leading charge in fascination with documenting things and being sort of for that picks niche interests. That might be sort of going away. So that's sort of a long answer to your question How i got started in my career was. I had my senior thesis in my undergraduate degree. I interned at the oregon shakespeare festival as a theatre photographer

"Okay bloomberg updated It's numbers Ten minutes ago two fifty five. Pm pacific time and california is fiftieth again according to the bloomberg numbers which they say they get from the cdc and other government websites. California has four point seven million doses that have reached the state but we've only injected one point eight million of them so we have almost three million doses by their count on the shelf. Of course as we have learned in the last twenty four hours california's reporting system is so screwed up that nobody knows if any numbers are accurate. There are mess finally a lot of media sacramento bee also going to time. San francisco chronicle have been sort of digging into the story. What they're finding out is really freaking confusing. Which being stake could be worse than this. I doubt it's better considering all the incompetence going on but for the moment We are in fiftieth place. Only thirty eight percent of available vaccines have been injected We're falling farther behind all the other states and a number of territories or independent countries that we provide health care services to islands out in the pacific We're just ahead of american samoa.

How does the Electoral College work?

"This week's episode answers the question. How in the world does the electoral college pick our president. You're listening to the how in the world podcast we're we unravel some of the planet's most perplexing questions in just about ten minutes nope we're not scientists or scholars. We're just normal people who like to figure things out. Sometimes inspiring sometimes informative. Our topics are always fascinating hosted by me mark johnson and my lovely wife me holly johnson. We do the research so you don't have to well. Today is thursday november fifth twenty twenty. And it's been a quiet couple of days around here in the. Us assure was there was something on tv to incessantly. Watch and keep checking my phone about What could that possibly be wrong. Oh how about the twenty twenty elections. It's been a wild couple of days folks in it. Looks like it could be wild for a bit longer. So let's all practice are deep breathing and relaxation methods together. Bring your popcorn as the time that we're recording this. I believe the elections come down to maybe four states that haven't yet counted all of their votes but once they're done it's still not over no not even close because once all the votes are counted will know what the results of the popular vote are. But we won't officially know yet. Who won this election. And that's because not only will there be a ton of lawsuits than we unto way through but also because we don't elect our president based on the popular. Vote like you would in the classroom election elementary school. We use the electoral college. And i've always been a little foggy about the electoral college. So i'm glad recovering this today because it forced me to dig deeper really kind of learn about it or you could have just asked your wife who by the way is a political scientist by education. You know yeah. I've been told that. Before so i get a little invested in presidential elections and the preceding debates and political discussion. So what it's fascinating and also frustrating and maddening and kinda stupid also but so fascinating the strategy. He's not even close anyway. Let's talk about the electoral college. Yup that's why we're here. So let's do it and by the way we're going to refrain from any partisan right discussion. This is just about the electoral college. You won't know who we voted for. So for starters you know how annoying all of those census ads and like postcard mailers and mail and information and more ads and everything was reminding us. How important is that we fill out our census form so that everyone is counted yet. And i remember seeing a ton about the census recently. But i believe you filled out the form. Since you're our families designated form filler outer am. I joined it because again i am a political scientist so data and surveys and stuff like that matters anyway. The census is used to determine a lot of things most notably funding to your state for certain services. So if you have a disproportionate number of school aged kids for example it tells the. Us government that you'll need a disproportionate amount of funding for schools. I mean that's really dumbing. It down but funding is a biggie. And doesn't also tell you how many representatives you'll get in the. Us house it does so every state gets two senators so there are a total of one hundred senators in the us senate but representatives are totally different because their allocated based on the census count. Yes they are. There's always four hundred and thirty five of them. No more no less. But how they're allocated can change. So if everyone emptied out of california which currently has fifty three districts and therefore fifty-three representatives and moved to wyoming which currently has just one representative. Those numbers would turn on their head. And by the way. Alaska delaware montana and north and south dakota and also vermont have just one representative yes and there are also some non voting delegates in the hell. They can do everything. The voting members can do except vote. Hence the name right. They can introduce bills and participate in committees Currently there is a delegate representing washington. Dc as well as one each for puerto rico. American samoa guam the northern mariana islands. And the us virgin islands. They're also talking about adding a delegate from the cherokee nation and from the choctaw nation which is super cool. Yeah it really is. And the senate and house together are called congress and there are a total of five hundred thirty five members of congress. So that's that hundred senators and the four hundred and thirty five representatives. Each state has the same number of electoral college votes. That they have congressmen or women which means each state has a minimum of three electoral college members. Two senators one representative three so for the the smaller less populated states. They're still going to have three electoral college members.

Chasing Coral

Chasing Coral

"The documentary chasing Coral premiered in July 2017 and it is a powerful film and since we've been talking about coral reef conservation at the shop thought it would be good to do a review of chasing Coral here on scuba Shack Radio. I watched it again a few days ago and it was just as impactful as the first time I saw. The documentary was conceived by Richard veevers who is currently CEO of the ocean agency. Richard worked at a top London advertising agency before he got involved with a passion on Ocean conservation. He was working on a project called Excel Caitlin Seaview survey regarding images of coral reefs that's where he started to understand the impacts of coral bleaching. Around this time. He watched a documentary called Chasing Ice produced by Jeff orloski and chasing Coral was born. I thought I'd give some key statistics on what it took to put together chasing Coral first. It took about three years to shoot over 500 hours of incredible underwater footage off. There were Thirty countries contributing to the documentary and more than 500 volunteers involved just an incredible effort. The film won the People's Choice Award for best documentary at the Sundance Film Festival and the 2018 Emmy for Outstanding nature documentary. Jeff Orlowski was originally from Staten Island, New York. He went to Stanford to study anthropology got into filmmaking and worked on the Extreme Ice survey that turned into Chase nice in 2009. He found it exposure Labs a production company focused on socially relevant issues. So chasing Coral is really about the quest to document with imagery a coral bleaching event. By reviewing what was happening at carries forward Reef in in the Florida Keys and at airport Reef in America Samoa. They determined that they would need to build a viable underwater time lapse camera. That's when they go to a company in Boulder. Colorado called view into the blue and they were going to build a housing. That would keep it self clean. It just so happens the exact Rego works at view Into the Blue. He describes himself as a coral nerd and becomes a main player in the documentary. With the cameras developed, they deploy to Hawaii Bermuda and the Bahamas and they put down their cameras and wait a couple months to get the images. It's a failure. The images are out of focus a lost opportunity. It's back to the drawing board to fix the problems before their next attempt. The next opportunity is on the Great Barrier Reef. They head out deploy their cameras and wait a large typhoon impacts their plans. So they read the place to another Island lizard Island, but they aren't able to take any of their special cameras the team needs to do time lapse manually that means going out every day setting up the camp exactly as before and getting the photos painstaking and exhausting after more than a hundred days. They complete the work over that timeframe. The coral has bleached died and his overgrown by algae Zack is extremely emotional at this incredible loss. It's crazy to think of water temperatures at 95° Fahrenheit, but that's what it was dead. Another team went to New Caledonia where they observed an amazing phenomenon fluorescent corals an attempt to Shield itself from the temperatures an amazing sight am amazing colors just before bleaching extremely sad to see the corals stunning last gasps. The documentary continues with Zach and Richard presenting their work at the international coral reef Symposium in Hawaii the time lapse photography of the coral reef dying over a two-month period of dramatic and overpowering the reaction of the attendees demonstrates the sadness. The film wraps up with Jack diving with one of his Heroes doctor Charlie Verona Pioneer in Coral research and conservation. They are diving on a beautiful unimpacted part of the reef off Charlie reflects back on maybe he didn't do enough. Maybe we all need to do more. Corals are being assaulted on many fronts not just climate change but pollution sunscreen and carelessness citizens are trying and we need our governments to act as well. Perhaps a new day is Dawning. If you haven't yet seen chasing Coral. You can find it on Netflix. Please find a time. You won't be disappointed. If you've already watched it believe me. It's worth watching again. We can't let them

Joe through a rough patch: Bidens super Tuesday

"This campaign sent down trump packing yesterday. Super Tuesday former Vice President. Joe Biden captured a clutch of states on the way to the nomination. The Democrats presidential candidate voters in Texas echoed. The view that Mr Biden presents a decent of reliable candidate in I've known so much about him for so long and he's a man of honor integrity and I think he will be excellent Senator Bernie. Sanders won his home. State of Vermont looks to be ahead in California for all the talk in the party that he would be a perilous pick plenty like his politics. I voted for Berry because he wants to get better rights. Everyone and then free healthcare but after a surge in South Carolina at a super Tuesday showing early promise of Mr Biden's campaign seems to have returned. Joe Has unbelievable sense of the understands people and he's been there and I trust them and it's why voted for him. Joe Biden had a very good night ethnic relative to expectations. And that's what matters most John. Prideaux is economists. Us Senator Bernie Sanders his two one. California which is the most delegate rich state but Biden did really well in other states including Texas which he wasn't projected to win a new few weeks ago. His campaign was being written off as being so dead and buried and people are encouraging him to drop out he now looks suddenly very competitive with Bernie Sanders and maybe even the likeliest nominees the Democratic Party. And how do you think it is that he managed that comeback? I think this result is a surprise. Joe Biden did well in South Carolina. Better even than people are expecting he was top of the polls there for a while but he really beat Bernie Sanders by a long way and this is a terribly cliche overused word. In presidential horse.

But he's carried that momentum into Super Tuesday and done really well and it now looks like a prostitute horse race between him and Barney Saunders and what kind of nightmare standard have well. He didn't exactly have a bad night in the sense that he won. California the most delegate rich state he's done well in Colorado Utah. Put Tonight I tell you with absolute competence. We're going to win the Democratic nomination. I think relative to expectations having won the first few contests in the primary. It's not a very good performance for him if you look at his delegate numbers it looks like at the end of the night. He won't be miles behind Joe Biden but his campaign have been hoping that Super Tuesday would have put him so far ahead that he'd be the presumptive nominee and that hasn't happened. What about all the other horses in the race though well a couple of the horses dropped out before Super Tuesday? Both Pete. Beauty Judge Amy Klobuchar rivals for the moderate slug of Democratic voters dropped and endorsed Joe Biden before these primaries. That appears to help. Joe Biden a good deal. And how do you see that narrowing going forward well? Especially we'll be within Mike Bloomberg stays in. He said he would no matter. How many delegates we win tonight? We have done something. No one else thought was possible in just three months. We've gone from one percent of the polls to being a contender for the Democratic nomination for box. I think his performance was so poor that I'm not sure. He has much of a case to stay. Despite spending about half a billion dollars in advertising he did win American Samoa. That's not a great prize in the Democratic primary. If he works dropout I expect that would help Biden again. And what would really help? Biden is if at Mike Bloomberg puts his political funding his political machine that he's assembled very quickly behind Joe Biden both in the primary and then in the general election. What about Elizabeth Warren? Though you haven't mentioned her I didn't mention have for good reason Jason. She hasn't won a single state. That is a surprise. There are plenty of good things about her candidacy. She's rather skillful politicians. She has lots and lots of detail. Policies which is either a good thing or a handicap depending on your point of view and it looked like she might be just left wing enough to excite the party whilst being centrist enough not to scare to many people but she really hasn't done well she seems to have been another victim of this overcrowded. Primary She's also saying that she'll stay in the race. So here's my advice. Cast a vote. That will make you proud. Cast a vote from your heart and vote for the person you think. We'll make the best president of the United States but it's hard to see much point in her doing so particularly after she lost her home state in Massachusetts so once again in this election cycle the talk in early stages was just how broad The field was and now it's been narrowed down to to Washington heavyweights who've been in politics forever. How do you suppose that's happened from all that? Talk of of change and younger faces and diversity down to kind of a bit of the same old yeah. This is a very odd feature the Democratic primary isn't it? I mean if the two candidates are Biden and Saunders and one of will face Donald Trump in November donald trump will be the youngest candidate that race and the choice will be between three white males in their seventies. That's quite surprising. Given where the Democratic Party field started out and I think the main reason for that is just. There was so many candidates in the race. Jason that quite a lot of potentially rather good candidates got knocked out early on weren't able to pick up enough momentum when able to get any purchase in early primaries so I think that's really the reason why we've ended up with these. Two very familiar figures that both of them started with a bit of an advantage in that they had to some extent a group of loyal voters. They're really only candidates in the race. Who are in that position and in such a crowded field. That's quite a good place to start. And so is what we're seeing here. Kind of coalescing of the fear about Bernie Sanders and the degree to which. He's he's just kind of two out to too far out to to the left. The idea here. Is that Mr Biden is is the safer bet. D Do you agree with that assessment? It certainly looks that way to me. I mean I thought that it would be certainly a risk for the Democrats to run Bernie Sanders against president trump. If you asked Democratic voters they say their number one thing is that they want a candidate who can beat Donald Trump but then that opens up a whole argument about well what kind of candidate can beat Donald Trump and. There's one theory that you need to take on kind of firebrand and a fellow populist like Bernie Sanders. Different kind of populist. And there's another school of thought says. Actually you need to play it safe and Joe Biden is the ultimate sort of play. It safe candidacy. He's not terribly exciting as a candidate but looking at the numbers are lots of analysts thought that he had perhaps the best chance of beating Donald Trump so it looks like the alarm about his candidacy that it just might be taking a huge risk in. What's a very consequential? Election seems to translated into poor results him on Super Tuesday. So as you say we're entering a period where it's essentially a two horse race. Do you have a sense now? That things are crystallizing. A bit how it might go from here. I think one thing we can certainly say is the voters have a habit of confounding the predictions of pundit. There's still quite a long way to run in this thing and room for further slip up so I'd be reluctant to say Candida. Xl definitely be the nominee. That said it's still. It's quite likely that the Democrats will end up with a contested convention in July. And I say that if you look at remaining states is Bernie Sanders or Joe Biden. Probably need to pick up maybe sixty percents of the remaining delegates. That's a high proportion and if I the Santus. All Biden fails to do that. The Democrats end up with a contested convention. So that's still looks like it's a fairly likely outcome. And so what are the things to watch as more primaries play out I think the things to watch our does Michael Bloomberg stand the race if he gets out how does that affect is Bernie? Sanders is Joe Biden. Able to build up such a commanding lead that they can win this thing. Outright get a majority of delegates before the convention or whether we'll end up with contested convention in which case people are going to start to get very interested in the intricacies and the rules of contested conventions. That's something we discussed on checks and balances on the economists other podcasts recently

Breaking Down Super Tuesday's Results

"Have Texas called in the last five minutes by the Associated Press Four Biden which was a slight surprise. I mean this was something where it was looking like a sanders victory up until a few days ago the polls were deadlocked and what happened is in the last three or four days Bernie Bernie Sanders Lost a lot of states that he was slated to win and Joe Biden consolidated a significant chunk of the Democratic Party. So is this a two-horse race? Yeah I mean I think the question is is it a one horse race There there is a possibility that Biden will create an insurmountable lead Going into next week Because one thing that's also very striking if you look at the results is that Biden performed everywhere except for the places that had high proportions of early voting in other words. Four people voted before south. Carolina's results were known and the narrative was that Biden's candidacy was flailing and Bernie was ascendant. So in in everywhere else Biden really over performed in a big way. The other thing that's very important to note is that Sanders argument throughout this campaign has been that. He brings new voters to the table new voters to the ballot box and that simply hasn't been shown by the data and in fact last night everywhere where turnout was up dramatically and it was up dramatically in some key states biden one big so for the narrative that we need a large coalition to beat. Donald Trump in November. The data is showing. That Biden is doing that and Bernie is not and if you're Bernie supporter. I can understand that it's something that's a difficult pill to swallow but it's what. The empirical evidence is showing through these Super Tuesday results. I mean because sound is slightly scary for some voters because of the socialist labeled but he's not really socialist in the sense that we would understand it. That's right I mean. I think the when you think about this from a UK perspective. There's a lot of Corbin. Comparisons Bernie is not Corbin. He's not nearly as far left as Jeremy. Corbyn but the US is not as far left as Britain. The US is right of Britain. And I think what's also crucial to keep in mind here is that the twenty twenty race is going to be decided by six. Maybe seven swing states. And when you look at which ones those are. You're talking Michigan Pennsylvania Wisconsin Arizona. Florida Georgia those states have very little in common culturally. The one thing they have in common is that they're ideologically moderate and so when you look at places like I'm from Minnesota which trump lost by one and a half percent whether Bernie is socialist or not. That label is highly unpopular in the mid west. It's highly unpopular in places that are ideologically moderate. And so I think that you know Bernie was going to face. Some serious roadblocks to winning in November against trump with some of those label. Some of his comments from the past. That wouldn't have played well in the sort of you know bread and butter mid West Swing State voters who are ultimately centrists so Tuesday was going to belong to Bloomberg if we believed Bloomberg. That clearly isn't the case. Is he still in with a chance? And if he's not might he take those vast funds and place them behind some other candidate? Your answer great question. I think this is one of those things where you know for Democrats who have divided opinions on the candidates. I think the last night in America was a victory for Democracy with a small D. Because it showed that money can't buy elections. He spent a half a billion dollars. Five hundred million dollars and lost everywhere except for I think American Samoa. An overseas territory. So what Bloomberg is likely to do. I mean I've seen reports who knows what will happen by senior ports. He's going to reassess his candidacy tomorrow. if he's smart and his advisors are smart. He'll drop out Wednesday morning. Us Time and throw his billions of dollars behind whoever the Democratic nominee is and I think just to you a scale of how rich Michael Bloomberg is. I did the math on this if I gave you. Five thousand dollars a day every day. Three hundred sixty five days a year. I would have had to start doing that in thirty two. Thousand B C Twenty. Two thousand years before the woolly. Mammoth went extinct for you to have as much money as Michael Bloomberg today so he has a lot of cash and that cash is going to go very likely behind. Joe Biden's candidacy in the coming days and very much the sharp end of the Spear Against Donald Trump going into the general election. So before we get onto what I suspect is really very good news. Just a quick chat about the other candidates Elizabeth Warren and you'll see above who are still in the race. I mean seem not for much longer. Yeah I expect. Warren will probably drop out tomorrow. Tulsi Gabbard Should have dropped out months ago. Chelsea Gabbert has a constituency of exactly one person in that person's name has Tulsi Gabbard But you know Warren Warren I. I've been surprised by. She ran a formidable campaign. She's extremely smart and has done a great job in exciting of voters about her plans. So I would expect that there will be a push to get her endorsements For either Bernie Sanders or Joe Biden. I also think that the the Democratic nominee would be very wise to pledge to bring Elizabeth Warren at at a minimum as a core adviser for the campaign the administration And possibly as vice presidential candidate or a senior adviser in the I also I mean the piece that I'm writing for the Washington Post. This morning is going to call for Biden to come out with a vice presidential pick now and I think the reason for that is because the party is divided between the sanders farther left wing and the Biden more centrist moderate wing and binding could go a really long way if he announced somebody like Elizabeth Warren Kamala Harris Stacey from somebody who fires up the Progressive Wing of the Party And and causes who are a little further left of bite into say you know what he understands us? He accepts that were part of the coalition to win and he's going to be running the candidacy that speaks to us. Not just to the moderates and of course the bottom line is who can beat trump. And you're of the opinion. That could be done. Yeah I mean I think this is something. Where were if you look at the swing states? That matter in November Biden is somewhat tailor-made for those states And there's been this narrative since two thousand sixteen because the political class so to speak was surprised by trump's victory that there's the secret sauce. That trump has that. He'll win no matter what but if you look at the polls. I mean most of the national polls have Biden up by eight points to nine points against trump and keep in mind. That trump was so worried about biden beating him that he able to get impeached over it. Dry trying to trying to damage Biden. And if you look at trump's tweets he is trying to say you know so. Division on behalf of Bernie saying the Democratic Establishment is trying to Rob Bernie Sanders supporters of their victory. Simply because he thinks that the way he wins either with Bernie candidacy over the divided party. Keep in mind that the the Democratic Establishment did not rob Bernie Sanders of the voters. The voters robbed Bernie Sanders the voters in this time because You know he he. Simply he lost the race You know ran I think fairly squarely one thing. That's very interesting to note going forward if Bernie decides to stay in the race. Even if next Tuesday's results are not favorable for him is that in two thousand sixteen when Bernie Sanders was trailing the delegate count. He said that it should matter. Only if you get a majority of delegates not a plurality he was going to fight to the convention and try to say though pick me as the nominee even if I don't have the most delegates this time around when he's had the most delegates when he's been the lead he said the exact opposite he said. If you have a plurality of delegates you should be the nominee will. We're headed for a scenario? After last night in which Joe Biden goes into convention potentially not with a majority but with a plurality and Bernie Sanders is on the records. Now saying that person should be the nominee so he may end up regretting Those words but it is. It is something that sets a precedent by which even if Biden does not get over the fifty percent threshold. That the rules say you have to. You could have his main opponent on camera many many times saying that effectively. If he's got the plurality he should be the nominee. I mean. A gamer of then Biden may yet beat trump. But we're assuming that this will be a fair fight and of course. There's nothing that you can see him about trump. We do not know how how badly he may try and ski this race. Yeah I mean this is why prognostication is a very dangerous game in In Two thousand twenty is that you have a lot of things that trump is going to be willing to do to break the rules. We we've seen that. I mean he was impeached because he tried to use US foreign policy and hundreds of millions of dollars to get a foreign government to investigate a political opponent in two thousand sixteen. Of course he called to jail his uplift his political opponent And and of course there's going to be the wildcards of Russian interference information more at CETERA. But there's also the wild card of the corona virus and how that's going to affect the race which causes some serious uncertainty forecasting months if not weeks into the future and we don't know how that's going to shake out but yes I mean I think if you're looking at places where trump is vulnerable and where he needs to win. Joe Biden is the candidate who is more like voters in those states than Bernie Sanders. I mean is something where you know in Minnesota where I'm from a neighboring Wisconsin. Both States Democrats need to win if they WanNa win and twenty twenty. Those states are not the ones calling for a socialist revolution outside of potentially progressive core in the urban centers. And what Biden did last night. Was He brought suburban voters to the polls and those people are the people who propelled the Democrats to the twenty eighteen victory in the house. So you know it's about building. A coalition of Progressives ideological moderates and even some Republicans who thank you know what trump is not a safe pair of hands to have when the country is facing a crisis like it is with corona virus. I think that might be the argument going forward. Brian. Thank you very much indeed. That's Brian Class in. Incidentally it's the first time I've seen him smile since two thousand and

"American Samoa American Samoa as a carcass find it kinda interesting you tell me Michael Bauer if you think there's just a little strange American Samoa holds a caucus primary today so to speak but they don't get the vote in the general election so what's the purpose of the day that is a great question I hadn't thought about it in that context for but you are absolutely correct so Hey this is who we like you could just do an American idol style and if we get it over with much quicker that seems to be it but I I I guess by the same token I'm wondering why of Tulsi Gabbard is still in the ticket if you have Amy Klobuchar who's expected to win her state today and she dropped out because she didn't see a path to victory I'm still a little unclear as to why you have pulled together on the ticket but those students we might not have answers for well we know star dropped on Saturday P. drop down Sunday as you mentioned over charge dropped out yesterday that's going to completely or could completely change the landscape today in some cases it looks like it might have already and you're you're right we'll see a further either proof of that or sort of the display unit that actually the truth because in like for instance North Carolina there was a poll that came out yesterday before you had the stepping down if you will call which are and that indicated that Bernie Sanders was up by five points in that state today this morning you get a different poll at in the apple indicate that Joe Biden is now up by twenty five points in that state so now which one of those scenes reveal which one of those seem unlikely I guess we have yet to see how that's going to play out today but is it possible this momentum swing the Joe Biden had from sun Saturdays South Carolina primary has moved into getting him ten million dollars you stop people to judge exit you saw Amy called Afshar exit and then they go to Dallas to get to get Alice yesterday and they rally behind Joe Biden is that enough to really lift this up I I don't know we'll have to see it seems like it's happening all really fast and super quickly but the other side of that is I think we're missing before Joe Biden got into the South Carolina drumming of of Bernie Sanders there which is I think a number of people who were thinking they were Democrats that we're voting moderate look at the second appearance on the debate stage of Michael Bloomberg and said well that's not the guys on the commercials and that's not the guy that I want to be voting for years so almost in a the merging see panic kind of situation went well who's our alternative and they went with Joe Biden so I think that's kind of where we're seeing this jump from Michael Bloomberg business is first day on any ballot at all right now in presidential run and he is it best to stalling in a majority of those polls and a lot of cases he's moving backwards regressing in those polls so I think that's the bigger indicator as to why we're seeing this surge from Joe Biden and I think that that's something that is we watch throughout the day they'll be some craziness that comes down from everything happening today but I think you're going to see Joe Biden really start to fight as the only other moderate candidate against Bernie Sanders out better and also combines way another endorsement this went from bad to Rourke I don't know how that's gonna play in other states but in Texas that's about a fifty fifty proposition so to speak yeah it taking into water burger I saw those pictures media as well that was kind of interesting yeah I I think that that Dallas in Texas with a big stage for them last night because of the fact in it but I think this is the biggest reason for it because let's not forget going back to twenty sixteen Bernie Sanders lost Hillary Clinton the Texas handedly and I think that there's a part of Joe Biden and his team is specifically with all the endorsements you got yesterday it feels that they could do a very good job competing in Texas there were the kind of support that they have they may not get California and frankly I don't think any of us are really gonna hear answers to California's super Tuesday until like next Tuesday there's a long way in getting information but I think they think they got a shot at Texas or at least competing in Texas that's why they had it there yesterday a man San Antonio first news national correspondent Michael Bauer Sean Hannity's morning mate coming your way before nine o'clock this is in San Antonio been around for seventy four years still
