"A lot of crops are grown up and so this also one of the reasons why the political or colonial powers are interested in these islands based off of its landscape in this economic as well as political purposes. Okay. And I want to ask you more about that interest in Europeans and the settling that occurred. But before I do, the islands of Samoa are they all inhabited? Yes, all the islands are inhabited. Someone is the main language. It is based off of a chiefly system. Really easy to laugh at this system within. This particular chiefly system fits within the village system where families and as well as extended families all have a chief rheumatology that they are part of within the village systems. But interestingly, all the islands are all interconnected with family connections. Which is the honorific. So regardless of where you're from, you can always link yourself to another stop on and the largest of the islands there about how big are they in terms of just traveling from one side of the island to the other. You can take approximately an hour to get one and eastern to the western or vice versa..

"What's up everybody? Welcome to kind of funny games daily. I'm one of your host Greg Miller alongside Samoa Joe. Greg, great to be here. First time here on kind of funny games daily. And I'm really excited about this. It's been too long, but I said Thursday, march 10th, Mario day, a day that will live in infamy. We have to ask mojo on. How you been Joe? I've been to excellent, man, but excellent, been busy, been doing a lot of cool projects. I can't tell you anything about, but other than that, yeah, doing well. Well, let me check my notes here. All right, so if somebody doesn't know you, of course, your Samoa Joe professional wrestler, Ring of Honor TNA, WWE NXT. Most importantly, king shark in Suicide Squad. Now I understand you can tell us everything that's happening in Suicide Squad. So go ahead. Yes, I can tell you as much as I know, which is absolutely nothing, according to the several NDAs that I signed. But I can say this much, it's going to be a fun game. Yeah, I can't wait. We've seen so little from it, but it's rock steady, of course, so you know that's going to be something special. Judging by how passionate they are about what they're doing as far as my involvement, yeah. I think we're in pretty safe hands. And I never want to get in trouble. How did that start? I mean, obviously, your Samoa Joe and, you know, if you know wrestling, you know Samoa Joe, obviously, you've been around forever. But if you know video games and wrestlers, you also know that you're a huge video game fan. So was it they approached you? Did you audition? Did you go to them and say you have to do this? You know, kind of just a random connection of acquaintances and people and got their casting director in touch with me and they liked what I offered and kind of went from there. It's fantastic. I can't wait to see it. I know it's still a ways output. And I know you can't talk about it. So don't be in trouble. So outside of that show, we have a whole bunch of people here who, of course, listen or watch kind of funny games daily for the video game news. And maybe they don't know the professional wrestling world. So real quick, who are you and what do you do? My name is Samoa Joe. I am a professional wrestler for oh, a little bit over 20 years. I've grabbed it all over the world for several organizations. Most of which conclude every combination of letter that you can possibly imagine. Currently working as a voice actor in the video game realm across several different mediums. And yeah, I mean, that's kind of me in a nutshell. Excellent. Question then, if I think I ask everybody when they come on, what's your favorite game of all time? Oh, great question. I think I think at this moment when I really think back in the breadth of the games that I've played, it's still Final Fantasy 6. No, no. You drifted off there. You drifted off. No, it's sick, dude. We're the real villains live, man. We're guys say they're going to wreck the world, and they do, Greg, all right? We're dealing with real issues here, okay? Not potential issues, all right? The meteorite. I apologize, Joe. I didn't mean I didn't mean to, you know, take a picture. I'll play this game with you. If you want to start off hotmail, I'll put, I played this game with creed. I'll play it with you, man. No, no. I don't want any of the heat you brought. All right, I'm good. I'm good. I'm calm down. No, it's fine. And you know, every time we talk about Austin creed AKA Xavier Woods, I get heated too. You know what I mean? This guy. 'cause it's just you hate to see somebody who's like a tick. And he's always riding biggie. He's always just riding Kofi. Do something for yourself. You know what I mean? You know? You know, I mean, I don't want to say we call him captain coattails, but I mean, there was a there was a small rumbling of that smattering around the locker room at times. We can get that started right now. Everybody tweets at Xavier Woods, AKA Austin created Austin creed wins on Twitter. Tweet at him and say, you just say captain coattails hashtag kind of funny games daily on the same. They don't understand where that's coming from. So now, you know, Joe, you talked about being professional, so you talked about being a voice actor in games and doing other projects and stuff like that. You're not danger hanging up your boots, are you? You're not leaving professional wrestling behind, are you? I don't think so. You know, I think there's definitely some very interesting potential matches on the horizon. So I mean, it's just a matter of sitting down and getting things organized and figuring out where we go from here. Sure, sure, 'cause yeah, you know, Ring of Honor, TNA, WWE, NXT, it feels like there's one missing. It feels like there's one missing that does a lot of stuff, but yeah, I mean, there's a few. There's a few missing, I'm sure. We can get it figured out. Okay. For now, let's figure out the video game news of the day. PlayStation Nintendo are suspending sales in Russia. PlayStation has more abuse allegations, and WWE two K 22s DLC has been announced. We're going to talk about all this in more because this is kind of funny games daily. Each and every weekday and a variety of platforms we run you through the nerdy video game news need know about. If you like that,.

"That episode's going to be out there. But I took way three amazing, tangibles that I will never forget. Obviously, content that makes him look good. That's important. And next one is making it simple. The third one was my favorite because it's something I've never done. These are some of the things my other guests have done. And you don't need to. But it's already social proofing. It's already like, okay, they've done that. I should do that too. It's like when I go on Amazon, everybody likes this product. I should like it too. Et cetera. So like just being able to share, these are some of the things my other guests have done to promote the show, just give them a couple of ideas. That is huge. That's the kind of like the missing piece that I've always had. And you've really just solved my problem that I've always had by having other people share my content. I've done the others, and I've done, well, people share it sometimes, but showing them that these are some of the things my other guests have done is like the biggest takeaway I've ever taken away. Why do I keep doing that? Anyway, Billy, you've added immense amount of value. I've already got the link to your podcast in general, the link to your other podcast. The link specifically in the resources to that episode that my listener needs to hear. So they can go and start listening to that episode. What I would like you to do if you don't mind, share maybe your website or however, it's best for us to get ahold of you and I'll make sure that's in the show notes as well. Yeah, perfect Adam. In such an honor to speak with you and learn from you and have this conversation and I'm glad that there was some nuggets that you found valuable and that you think the listener will find valuable as well. So a couple places you can find me certainly look for me on Clubhouse. Most of my things are at Billy's Samoa that's.

"These are what's hot. So how do you make content that's shareable? Imagine if you make something so shareable that it goes viral and your podcast logos on the video. That will hugely influence people gaining exposure to your show. And there's plenty of opportunity within those platforms to grow quite large. That's the first thing. And I wanted to say though, the way in which you do that is, think of it like a meme. How do you make it how do you surprise somebody? I do tap into emotion. How do you give them something that they feel inspired to want to share it with other people? The second thing is give food to Google. The Google algorithm and you do that with long form articles, think of your podcast as a pillar content and from that pillar content, you have the smaller repurpose content for the video, but then you could also create long form articles that are keyword rich. And they attract people to your website. You need to own your own property your own website. And when you do long form articles, people will find those and they'll find your podcast. Super, super important. The third thing that I recommend is how do you inspire people to share? So you could do things like a contest. You could do things like giveaways, you could do things like getting people to join certain small programs that you have if you have a Patreon or if you have some other thing that exclusive programs that you invite people to. And when you do that, you're giving people the feeling like they're part of your family and that will give them the desire to want to share your show. So again, just to reiterate vertical based videos, tap into that wealth of audience and organic reach to make sure your capitalizing on long form written content in three get creative and come up with clever and exciting ways to inspire your audience to help spread your show through word of mouth..

"PDF. Let's get back into the show. And we're back with the Billy Samoa salvi from the for the love of podcast podcast and the insight out podcast. You can find both of those links down in the show notes and I've already taken so many tangible things to my business that I think can help me to be a better podcasters from a lot of the things that Billy shared with his story. And it's been insightful to say the least to talk about rolling on E and what his movie did, him working with Tesla and the experiences that he's been able to share with us. And those four main things that he mentioned on how to gain insight will probably stay with me forever, just like putting yourself into the right position where your brain can allow that to happen. Like meditating, even showering or going on a walk or whatever it means to take a breather that really resonated with me, and it really made me feel like I've got to spend that time. If I want to improve, if I want to have more insight in my life, that I'm going to need to be intentional about not working so damn hard and just like go, go, go and what traditional people say is really what we need to do, which is like hustle hustle grind. Like this four step process is really impactful for me. The second one was don't let those moments pass you by. So like when they're happening, write them down, take note of them, just like a dream can pass you mentioned. The third one was asking yourself taking some time after you've written them down and just to look at them in your journal or wherever you're putting them and say, is this worth my time? Is it worth my time to carve out that time to say, should I do that thing that kind of came to me in my quiet moments? And that last one, which was that nothing happens without a vision, nothing at all happens if we don't have a clear path of where we're going..

"I may as well. Yeah, I just started 6th and 7th thing. Yeah, so for the love of podcast, came before Spotify. So although I was working on Spotify sort of in parallel, but I launched four level podcast end of August of 2020. And then I launched Spotify in December of 2020. So they're both still under a year old. I've only about to release my 36th episode of for the love of podcast versus inside out. We're about to release 80. So the point I'm making is what I realized is all of the operational things and making a podcast, the editing and the repurpose in the video, the web development, the writing, the publishing. All of that took way too much of my time. And if I could outsource that, I would have so much more of my time to do the thing that I love doing, which is interviewing people and preparing for those interviews. And all of those things. And so that's why poti is a great fit. And the nice side benefit of for the love of podcast is it's a feeder, a lead generator for Spotify because when I have a show that services podcasters and I have a business that services podcasters, my potential clients are my listeners or even my guest as well. And so actually a combination of Clubhouse LinkedIn and my podcast have built pod. All of my customers have come through there. I don't do any outbound at all. I do only inbound either referral based business or they heard me on Clubhouse. They've seen my post on LinkedIn and I was very active on LinkedIn last year, or they've heard my podcast. And one of the three things and maybe one thing they found me on but then they heard my podcast which added a bit more credibility. So that's another good benefit of having that show edition. I love it. That's so true. I had a podcast that I didn't really hardly have any listeners at the beginning. It was called creative real estate podcast. I started it. I wanted to raise money. I wanted to track capital for doing real estate deals and everything. And it was funny is I maybe only had like 20 downloads prep episode in the beginning. And for the first full year, it was like that. It took me actually probably about a year and a half until I figured out how to start marketing it. And it just like slowly had that giant bell curve and went to a hundred, which is 5 X, what I was doing. And then it went to 300, which is another three X on top of. And then it went to 3000. It was another ten X on top of that. Downloads per episode. But in the beginning, when I only had it going for like 8 months, I went to some conference, some real estate conference. And I was talking to this guy and he was well to do. He was like a perfect avatar for me at the time for wanting to attract private capital. This guy was exactly the right perfect person. And I wasn't famous..

Our Tesla left me in 2019. So that was out of ten year corporate ride. All right, here we go in three, two, one. And we're back with another episode of the podcast on podcasting. It's funny because I have somebody on the show who also has a podcast about podcasting for the love of podcast. This is none other than Billy Samoa sali. Thanks man. So stoked. I'm excited because Billy, you have an incredible personality, a credible love for other people. I've learned personally so much from you and what you do that I've been wanting to have you on my show for a long time. And it's all through this amazing app called Clubhouse, which I guess now they let those Android owners in, which is I think that's why everybody is leaving. I don't know. Maybe they're not leaving. Anyway, let's get into it. So I've learned a ton from you on Clubhouse. You add a ton of value to a lot of people on Clubhouse. You're always running rooms. Co running rooms and just supporting a lot of different people. And I just want to commend you and say that I appreciate you for that. And I want to also because it's always important to tie things in for our listener and let them know your middle name isn't just by chance his middle name is Samoa. It means more chicken. Saab means more and more means chicken. And Samoa means that he's from Samoa. And that's what the samoans do. I was actually serving a mission with all the samoans and literally. This is an actual thing. I would eat the chicken and I would say that's good. And they would put two more pieces on my plate. And I gained 52 pounds. Wow. I was wearing a lava lavas, like, you know what, those are. And just had a blast. And almost nobody knows this about me. But I have only a couple of tattoos. Okay..

"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..

"Experience and the way Steve and other phone companies had done it. And they just wasted a bunch of money. And Jeff just said, oh, no worries. Let's just move on. And he didn't fire anybody. He just said, what can we learn from this experience? And I thought that was such a fascinating piece to the culture because Jeff knows really well as an entrepreneur. If he's trying to juggle a hundred balls, a lot of those balls are going to break. But if one of them works really well, it's going to make up for every other loss project for him that one ball was AWS. You got to take the at bats, you got to swing if you don't swing, you're not going to have any opportunities to have the home runs occur. So one final question here, Brendan, when you break down this guy, here's a guy that was a Wall Street executive and the company and the success speaks for itself, but why do you think he himself is such a great entrepreneur? Did he learn it? Is he a great student? Did he watch other people? Is he naturally gifted? Is he just brilliant and smart? What is it about him, the DNA of an entrepreneur is what I really want to get to the core of? You know what's fascinating, Billy? I wish I had a perfect answer for you. But that's probably the greatest mystery behind Jeff. Because pretty much all we know based on my knowledge, he went to Princeton, he was super passionate about space. He always wanted to go to space. And then becomes a Wall Street executive and then starts an Internet company. And now he's going to space. So it's a weird plethora of experience, because remember, he started emphasis at the age of 29 30. He didn't say I want to be an entrepreneur since the beginning. No, he went to go work on Wall Street. So what does this tell us? Here is what this tells me. There's a couple of qualities that I think stand out..

"Imagine the world enough it as an added up details and by adding the needs and communicating those details back to his audience is actually going to get to the goal much faster in the same way. A good friend of yours elon. Musk has done that so well he so. Good at communicating vision over and over again that he's literally built nine billion dollar. Companies with almost zero marketing sped painting a picture he needs to he needs to be able to make the vision more clear believable and digestible to the audience. Not just have it. Be a simple tagline but actually make it as real as possible. Is that what you mean and let me add it. More tactically literally. If i was christo right now and i was taking my own advice. I would literally take a week off. Work everything and just sit there with my team and edge this out industry. What does that look like. What do the girls feel like. What are those boys in high schools thinking. What are they going through. It goes through the whole persona map but in that world in that state were one out of seven. People are getting paid to do what they love. What does that world look like like. Actually i did that with nostra. Talk by the way. That's why i'm teaching. What i'm preaching here right. I did that. That's i'm super ridiculously crazy right so i want him to do that because he's going to do it way better than me and you can. But he's not putting in the time. And i think to being too busy. That big vision is not going to help us get to the vision. Such number one number two is leveling up your communication skills so that you can fit that future version of who you're going to be. There's a great story. I can tell you that shared before with you. One of my favorite shows of all time is a show called death.

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.

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.

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..

"Fundamentally just what i wish. Someone taught me like who knew. That mental ship was not like a Harry potter to dumbledore or frodo to whatever it is like gandalf who knew that it wasn't that that this was this lifelong thing. I didn't know i thought it was afford. It was one mental ability. One it's not that at all so all right. So here's the thing. I think that there are experts out there who have done what we ultimately want to do. Because it's also important to understand. It's not necessarily that. These people are more gifted talented than us in a particular area of interest is just that they've played that game before over and over again and hence why we can be mentors to someone else in a particular area but mental 's in a particular area of expertise they're conditioned and oftentimes forget that these people that we praising public have spent years and years -tracting their croft in private and navigating our way in professional life personal life. Whatever it it can leave us. Feeling loss disappointed and giant. But it doesn't have to be that way because we can lessen their own turns because otherwise has have already done that so for me. A mentor is someone that constructively guides actively participates in supportive dialogue and becomes a role model to a person less experienced particularly in an area of personal professional development so they act as a as an adviser act as a friend but they also act as an idol in many ways. Someone that's proven to have done that thing so i'll give four for tips basically Firstly you know we need to get clear on definition of what Mental ship really is so like. I said it's rarely these lifelong punishable thing. I think that that's romanticized. So in my mind the key thing is that you can have ten twenty forty mentos if you want because a mental interaction is simply those three aspects. The advice giving slash the coaching piece. The friend who really knows that you feel that they're not after any ulterior motives but then the approve knowledge and so there's an interaction that because the reality is like reading a book watching youtube video a one way street. The power of mentorship is also in the dialogue so the first thing is get clear that it can be a conversation as little as ten fifteen minutes. So that's what i want people to understand. The second tip is around going through personal analysis. Because if you don't know who you also literally ask yourself. You know who am i. What do i want. why do i want it. What's stopping me from getting it. This is the foundation starting.

Depending what you off doney paper i Down under that's right right donny. Paper dinero all role sometimes as well but so the story behind that ease. I grew up not so well off but even beyond that my story begins way before me my parents from the philippines. My dad's one of eleven mums. One of five died.

Eatery wouldn't even call it a full blood restaurant but they would often even have only a tablespoon of peanut butter red and bred to share for the day. and that's not to share an emphasize. Necessarily you know the feelings of sympathy that you might get a store like that. But just the reality of their life literally when people have a hard time There now view in their view.

My dad got marine transportation degree and mechanical engineering degrees. two degrees. we get to ustralia on one year.

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

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.

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

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.

"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. Race Commentary Jason. 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
