"Totally does it make you feel better when other people's lives act or spouses or whatever act rationally, and it's like, okay, I don't feel as. I love it when it's somebody else's getting in trouble. Is Mad at like my at like her mom or my mom or anybody? At least it's not me. I'm so excited that she's directing their anger at another person. That's not me like, yeah of course she's the worst just egger on like, yeah. No for sure. They made for months and be happy with that's fun but it's never more than ten minutes until she turns her vitual. Comes back. The compass always points true north. Always, points wheels. All right. All right. Well, what a way to bring it full circle here we've a HASHTAG. Oh, what is the Hashtag? Should people just give us their name suggestions as the Hashtag you could give us name suggestions as a Hashtag work. Okay. All right. So I, thought we make progress here today. What progress we made a decision now granted the change that people could be coming in and what if like what if we suspect that it's like one unhappy listener who just has a thousand people signed the Change Dot Org. Bond. Titian. So there's like some like astroturf like me. A big. Movement of bots that wants to take, but it's and you know what? that. Means somebody was really invested in the shadow if one person is that investment chaired a lot so good point. Here is enough for me not to podcast with. Yeah. Then we will consider car, but also I we're going to verify those names. We're going to call their housing needs. Let's be real. We know the names of almost a at least. Sixty percent of the listeners of the podcast. At least we're podcasting about a sitcom from eighty. We're going to double or triple the amount of between the two were we could probably. Give you the first and last name of. Question at the Seinfeld's the I seventy percent. Oh Yeah. By the way should that be a podcast? We just like analyze our listeners we just like talk about like. Like, here's every listener. Give effect that at the Seinfeld show, there was only like three or four names that you and I did. Not. Recognize. So we we sort of like looked them up like who are these people who've never interacted with? Like that Guy Nelson who came from Colorado just for the pining s we had never I don't think with him before we had no idea who it was, but there was another guy, I don't remember his name he was coming from Philly. So we like look them up beforehand. So he came and I'm like Oh hey, you used to work for the seventy sixers it his blown away like are you stalking me? But no, he was like one of the three names we didn't recognize we googled him. And I saw on facebook down. So that guy was. uncomfortable. People prefer to listen to podcasts anonymously. Listen I was a lot of podcasts other than like the I. Guess. The one weird thing I ever did was I listened to your podcast and you said something about sports and I tweeted it was like, Hey, this and this and this about like David Samson or some or like. Cliff Robinson, and then like, Hey, this random Internet guy, I'm going to do a full pot. You know four hundred podcast with him and then let commit to a really weird idea to do more podcasts with him. just off that one tweet but it didn't work like the like the boys know why and I listen to their episodes or like the Hollywood book. I think most highly I'd cast do so anonymously Occa-. All right your podcast Sir I feel like you know. Medium podcast. You're medium podcast there but but you know like an unusual percentage of your listeners compared to the other podcasters. That's right. That's right. That's Marc Maron knows like I. Don't think Marc. Maron has like a Johnny Diesel. Or like. We're we're losing the threat here. Okay. All right. So of course, you can e mail us your idea Seinfeld at post show recaps calm. You can also find us on social media at Heave twenty-six and how many twitter followers is Akiva up to. We talked about this last time. I went up a little bit because four ninety. One thing. Yeah went up like fifteen. If we just keep doing this forever, maybe there should be on the main fee just to put my podcast listeners, it will be terrible for your business I think. But it'll be good for like my amount of podcast fowler. Yeah. Okay. Well, we'll see we'll see I. Think it over going to meditate on us. Okay. All right.

Coronavirus Q&A: Running Outside and Petting Dogs
"Let's get to the questions. We got so many from our list. We picked a few and show them to you. So we're going to have you answer them right now and provide color commentary throughout you. Sure. All right first question? What's the deal with running? I've heard inflicting things. What's the likelihood of? It means bread of someone runs past me okay. So this question makes total sense to me because I think there were some scary kind of initial studies around this. Man where it says runners could spread it for twenty feet and they were these vectors but that was kind of mildly debunked. Yeah. It was kind of dismissed them and there are parts of it that made sense but it wasn't considered to be like actually a real world scenario that was tested and it's really hard test that so. When I think about running, of course, it depends on what space you're in, right. So outside in fresh air going to have a lower risk if you're somebody if you wearing a mask if that person's wearing a mask, all of those things kind of factor in and as best we can tell Sam as a you know a somewhat general rule. The majority of transmission happens in close indoor situations where you're spending a good bit of time together. That is why it is absolutely essential to be wearing a mask especially inside it doesn't mean that there's no risk if you're outside and there's only a brief encounter but it's reduced. Running and you pass somebody for a second. I'm not super worried about that situation now they cough and sneeze, and you just slam right into it. Say I'm that's a different scenario. Go Home, wash your face, wash your hands but the you know the experts that I'm talking to are not super worried about that situation art follow up question for you on this topic as a runner. I have heard mixed messaging about wearing a mask. When you run some folks say well, you're outside you're moving fast, just dodge even stay away from people others are like you have to have it on all the time when I've done both. But when I've tried to run with a mask on my entire five miles I ended up with the wet mask and it's like I'm waterboarding myself. Yeah absolutely I mean, of course, wearing a mask if you can is a good situation and if you're in a really really busy city and you can't get away from people if you're like constantly dodging people I actually do think it's probably a good idea. But if you're in an area where it's a little bit more open, I would say it's probably okay not to wear a mask when you're running A. Anytime, you have the choice between them a mask is going to be a safer bet but if you can get up really early before somebody's out there or go somewhere else in and it's you know like either I'm not gonNA run or I'm gonNA run without a mask. Then I think that's a decision you have to make. So you're saying we should be doing three am runs in cemeteries. Sam Stop. Phone. It in get up at three am and got it done. Get it done. Get it done. Yes. Next. Question from a listener about animals can I say hi to other people's Dogs Oh yeah, Samson is this question for Melissa is this question? This question is from Sanders. From. My Heart. And make sure they're OK. Okay. So I looked this up because I wasn't sure and the CDC has weirdly complicated guidance on this. So really some pets like dogs or cats have caught Kovic from humans, but the CDC says the risk of dogs than giving Cova to people is considered low like there's no evidence that you can get it from the for or the hair of other pets. But one of those owners that kisses your dog on the mound, I was just about to say. But this because the CDC still says, you should not interact with dogs outside their household. So I'm like man I guess the CDC is worried about people getting pet saliva in their mouths, but you shouldn't be mcing on somebody else's dog anyway Sam. If you see a dog and the dog is really really really cute. Oh my God you part of the Kids Sam Palmer's the kiss I cannot miss the kids you are. You're going to have to definitely miss the kiss for a while so but so but I will say, honestly, you know briefly a dog has come up to me and the dog park it's onerous faraway I pet it. I'll say I have pet but the. Official guidance lead those dogs alone. Sam. Understood understood.

"A starter that you can plug in the rotation and we're getting back. A dontrelle he didn't care about central else. Turmeric said. I will not manage a team. If you make straight. I will not manage this team. That is breed. You may not do this to me when we're coming into a new team and put me in front of these players and say that we're going to be good when we're not because of the trade that you're making. And we're on the phone. I said Jeff let me explain to you how this works. You don't have one God damn, say in whether or not we're making this straight now one you will take the twenty five guys. We give you and you will manage. Jeffrey was quiet. Jeffrey caused me after says David. That was too much. That was too much. We need toward to be okay. Everything's GonNa be okay. Jeffrey, you told us to make this trade. Because of the payroll, we had to cut payroll. Which I agree with you because the team is a financial disaster. You'RE GONNA. Let your manager talk to you like that and on a phone in front of with other people on the phone. Tell you that he's not going to manage those players. You should have fired him right then and there. I was livid, so I barely spoke to Torbert. We had a fight. There was a time in the clubhouse where tour board was. This is true, absolutely true. He physically went after me. What's? In the clubhouse in the clubhouse players in well, it was and the managers room coaches. It was loud enough. He screamed at me loudly enough. It was not as bad as when Bobby Valentine screamed at me, and then didn't end up getting hired after we had hired him, and he never managed to gain. Another story I'm running down episode. was unbelievable to more bore goes after me. People get in the way so blind fest gets in the way because he's there. There's no Michael Fist point. BIND FEST GETS in the way basically calms the situation down. I'm freaking out because I'm not a big guy tour. Borg is not a small guy tour. Borg son is a royd raging huge guys in the room so I have no recollection of anything, because when I'm being attacks or an I've still never punched in my life and I've never thrown a punch. Somebody like a lot of people have threatened you. Lot of people's threatened, but it's never happened. I just remember sort of going dark and I and I got myself out of there immediately, because this was not a situation, I wanted where a manager was beating up a president right? That just didn't seem like a good idea. But tour board was out of control. He literally was out of Control, so when two thousand three came along, and we were supposed to be good, even though no one we'd be good. And Jeffrey wanted us to be good and I was secretly saying you know you don't start well. After we signed Pudge, this'll be for Torbert. We'll finally be able to get rid of them, and wouldn't you know it? We started off terribly and I was fine with this. That was the end of Jeff Torrington. Never have said a word to him since incredible story David. I thought we were going to be able to get into Jack. mckeon but I didn't expect the Jeff. Tour Borg Stories to be so good. So the next episode. We'll talk about Jack mckeon I've written down. I. Know You've got into great detail. The what happened with? With Joe Girardi, maybe we can appeal a few layers away from that and get even some more good stuff and this Bobby Valentine Story Bobby Valentine. Sorry that you just tease is seems like it's something that we're gonNA WANNA listen to so next episode. Jack mckeon. Thank you for the Jeff Torbert Story. Let's get into your movie review of the Week David Samson. So I want to review A. Twenty seven minute movie, which is something we don't do often and I want to bring this episode full circle. If you don't mind I watched the Dave chapelle special. Called Eight, forty six, obviously, after the amount of time that George Floyd was kneeled on by that racist murdering officer and I was struck. It was a live event and Chapelle, said on the show. This is the first concert since grown virus started I. Don't know if that's true or false, but it seems true because I haven't seen any concerts, so Dave Chapelle got on, and he had nothing prepared. He had a notebook where it looks like he had taken some notes, but this was an emotional twenty seven minute routine. And, I didn't laugh one time. I didn't find it funny but I don't think he was trying to be funny. I actually felt for Dave Chapelle. He was smoking the whole time, and just seemed nervous, and often the audience wasn't sure very uncomfortable to laugh. Do not laugh at what points you comment and I thought Dave. Chapelle having the. Awareness to do a show like that is so important. I don't know if people are watching it. I thought it was GONNA be on Netflix's I spent ten minutes trying to find it and then I realized it was only on Youtube so I found it on Youtube. It is well worth watching, because it gives a nice sort of perspective and the one sort of nugget that he had that was interesting is. Is that he doesn't WanNa be criticized as a celebrity for not using his platform to try to effect change because his view is who wants to hear from celebrities right now and I do take a small issue with that. The bigger your platform is. I want everybody to use a platform whether it's alone your dinner table or with more people, but he's got a huge platform and he did use it. Yeah well, that's what sort of confused me by and 'cause he's going into. That I thought he could've spoke to his insecurities about it the discomfort. That's their absolutely understandable, but don't tell me about not using your platform while using your platform quite well, I should say I that that point that he was trying to make was a loss and just chalk it up to well, he's he's rushing this and he's just talking it out that that entire thing is. He has bullet points in his notebook, and he's talking things out with an audience inventing a little bit, but I thought he spoke to the discomfort and not the actual because. Because then it opens up in. This seems like a little hypocritical. Doesn't it? Right and so I? Give him overall credit I. Think it's important to watch and I got past that because I looked at the global message that he was giving and I felt I mean I. I can't say that I feel anyone else's pain like I don't have that right to say it because I. Don't I can just say that if everybody's behavior can change and and through the challenge, if we can give, give things away or give your time away or give money, way or even just talk to people about this situation and not hide from it. It's it's important and Dave Chapelle. Check it out and sounds like you did. It's twenty seven minutes is not a large investment I thought going in the whole routine was going to be eight minutes and forty six seconds. That's what I thought. Then when I saw the youtube twenty seven minutes I was trying to figure out what he was going to do for. For that whole time, but it was. It's worth your time. Good stuff David this week. Host of nothing personal make sure to check out his podcast and support him. Next week we'll get into the trader. Jack stuff is promise me that Bobby Valentine story will get a little bit of a bonus. We'll talk to you next week. David, I take, thank you..

"Oblivious right so if you had to describe his character, it's oblivious to anything going on around him and I wanted to feel that way and so I put it on, because I wanted to escape and I felt. Guilty after I finished. Because why would I be able to want to escape and be able to escape situation? Where there are many people in their life, they can escape ever.

At least a million We got some insight into you this episode, but you escaping to watch Napoleon dynamite, because of the weight of what of what's going on around you and then feeling bad, because you've got what you were looking for.

"Who could have handled the issue? Who didn't just like in Miami? Wayne is in John Henry are far wealthier far more advanced than I ever was. Then Jeffrey ever was and the reason they couldn't get it done is they were unwilling to do what it took to get? It done I can. I'm sorry to cut you off at mean to do that, but I can understand why. This would make aerial angry as you guys. They're making presentations about ballparks. It kind of feels like you kind of. Of knew what the deal was when you bought this. And I know Jeffrey address a team and had this whole world series discussion. We're going to turn this team into contenders and we're going to keep this seem in Montreal doing all the raw raw stuff. It's really hard for me to believe just as an independent that the discussion as you're buying this team between I. Don't know how how involved you are in the actual negotiation of the buying team, but in Jeffries deepest most honest thoughts. If he wasn't just buying this team knowing that it was going to move anyways, and this was his only way into baseball, and once he got the the expos. He'd figures next move out, but it wasn't about keeping the Montreal Expos in Montreal, so let me answer that because that's a great question, so are I was involved during the during the entire negotiation to have Jeffrey. Jeffrey became the general partner and are viewed. The entire time was that it would be preferable to get a ballpark in Montreal. It would be more cost effective to get a ballpark in Montreal and rebuilds that team than it would be to pay a relocation fee to move even if we got the votes to be allowed to move, which by the way as it turns. Turns out we couldn't get didn't get one get. There's no way in one thousand, nine, hundred nine that it was even a kernel of thought that, hey, in two thousand and two, there could be a historic franchise swap. No chance did we say to ourselves. Let's get in the game and we've got to do everything we can to get a ballpark in Montreal and if If it doesn't happen. We'll take it from there. Of course we said that by the way we said that in Miami to will go to Miami. We're going to try to get a ballpark in Miami, and if it doesn't happen, will take it from there, but there was nothing nefarious about our intention so I. Bring Your attention to your favorite baseball team. The Miami Marlins. Or your erstwhile favorite baseball team when you have a team that you know is not going to be competitive, and we all know how teams are, because we are self, aware owners or not presidents and GM's or self aware. Do you know we still go into spring training and have the same meeting with the team every first day of spring training? You're right, were being picked to lose one hundred games. We've all read it. You've read it, but you know what we've got to play those games and we can do it as a group. If we stick together, we can win. We can make the playoffs we, of course not. It's not likely we're going to try. I mean Derek jeeter probably doesn't know because he's had a lot of those raw speeches and I could see what's happening with him. Getting beaten down, and I can understand why Derek jeter, who's not this enormously physically gifted player that had this hall of fame career. That's one of the great winners in baseball history, thinking that he could just will some of these poor teams to victory, and it's not happening for them, and it's a bit of an adjustment period. Period, I'm sure it was even an adjustment period for you because you guys had fairly early success, and you want to championship in two thousand and three not long after you guys came into owning the teams once you get a taste of that, you probably number one feel some sort of affirmation, and positive reinforcement that yeah I? AM The man I did this and it takes quite the recalibration for you guys in those leaner years, doesn't it? It's the hardest thing in the world is winning one world series because you you your whole goal, so many people through their careers. I spoke to Andre Dawson about this all the time because he never won. One is a player I spoken to budge seelig. Who Never won? One is an owner, and that's all he ever wanted in all you think about, and the problem is when you're. You're competitive. The way many of us are the minute you win one and that was your entire goal. The goal line moves and you WANNA. Win Your second, and the problem with that is if that bleeds into your life, which has with me then there's no finish line ever. You never satisfied with anything, and that is one of my great personality. False I would say is that. Some people would say well. That's what drives him to succeed and I would say that that's what drives me to be miserable more often. I'm not into B, not emotional into have the shell around me because I'm never satisfied in a in a world where you can never take incremental victories I. Remember the day after the we won. The World Series I missed the parades in. In Fort Lauderdale, the boat because I was negotiating to try to get a Ballpark, trying to take advantage of the momentum, so I was not I chose to miss the parade willingly, and it turns out. We didn't get a deal during those negotiations, and we then had to build the team up and then tear down or no six and I. Look back at that and I think. Can you imagine not even taking enough time to enjoy a World Series Parade in Fort Lauderdale? I did the one in Miami, and then had to go to work, and they were the same day and I. Just I've done a lot wrong, Mike. There's no doubt about it and I wish that I were more able to understand my successes and failures and be satisfied, but I'm just not. Not Wow I've had an unexpected turn in this one. Let me try to crack open a little bit more because one of the things that we closed last week with is I was gonna level with Ariel like. Yes, Samson is in my eyes and in your guide, Samson and laureate there. They're the pain of the baseball existence right though the bad guys ultimately in Montreal Really the Major League Baseball Strike in ninety four should really be considered the bad guy. When you look at the Expos, a quantifiably I think that did more to end that franchise than certainly anything Bronfman Dead, and even though he's a part of that and you guys did thereafter. That's the wheels began turning in motion with that strike. You would agree right. Right David is question well? It's actually strike the the team. The Expos had a trade a bunch of players when the season restarted in nineteen ninety five, so they didn't have a chance to finish ninety four when they had the best record in baseball, and we're going to be a playoff team for the first time since eighty one and then on top of that. That after that, the revenue went away because the owners at the time were just not willing to put the money in that was required. Yeah, so can totally understand a Montreal Expos Fan thinking. You're just some and major league. Baseball wanted baseball out. Of Montreal they screwed out of a world series with their greed, and I could totally understand or a Montreal Expo Fan. Fan Just Samson Loria nonstarter for me. They were just the final puppets and place I got the team for a joke of a price anyways, and they were part of this larger plan to have this. This baseball franchise swap, and we were never really part of the plan so I I understand that and I would subscribe to all these conspiracy theories, but really..

"Mean I was I was young in new to the game, and I was walking into a situation that I only had been told about, but hadn't lived through so everything that that you talked about Ariel about the history of the expos. All was very similar and I know that my cast be thinking this that we hasn't said a word about it. The similarities between our entrance into Miami and our entrance into Montreal. Lost on the audience than on the listeners, because it's really a very similar situation with fire sales and owners who were very wealthy, who didn't want to build stadiums and then sold Mike Are you? I know you can't speak up because it sounds like you're agreeing with me, but very similar situations, so do i. wish that it would have worked in Montreal, do I wish of course, but look at the history. There are oftentimes in cities that it doesn't work out, and then those cities band together and get teams. Teams back it happens, and all I was trying to do at that time. Even a young guy was explain to the local people and the local business leaders in the influencers whether they were partners or not. Is that by not cooperating now? Baseball is not going to allow this to continue, and you're gonNA. Come back one day, and it's going to cost you even more if Stephen. Bronfman had been as emotional van as he was now about the Montreal Expos, you would never heard my name before could more. More season. David, Samson, the one that got the stadium deal the controversial stadium deal done down here. Could that David Samson after getting all that life experience save the Montreal. Expos I'd like to think yes, but the way it's happened in Montreal, and what's going on in terms of Public Financing of stadiums? They've it's been. It's been hard. It's been hard up. There and I'm hoping it happens, but it's been hard Mike again. This is why I wanted to establish so that we don't paint the picture that this is just some horrible. Horrible situation there is a greater history of baseball in Montreal than there isn't South Florida with all due respect dating back like I said to the Montreal royals, the triple, a affiliate of the Brooklyn dodgers dating back to the eighties when they were averaging two point five million fans of season so to to paint this picture that hey you know. This was a situation that we just couldn't fix. No, there's a fan base there, but you had to. You had to revive the fan base clearly because they had been stabbed in. In the back multiple times, but I hope that I've proved today that they had no intention of doing so, and that they they lied every step of the way, and and and if someone didn't engage with them a little bit, they would just take their ball. Go home, and here's the bottom line and I'm happy that you brought up Florida. Because I'm no expert on the Marlin. Situation I'm not a fan of the team it was it was by the time the Marlins won the world series I was checked out from. From baseball at that point because I was so hurt by what happened in much, but I'm happy. Brought it up and I'm happy. You admitted David that there are similarities between the two. Because here's the fame. If you guys would have left Montreal in that sweetheart, deal that you you somehow pulled off with Major League Baseball John Henry. Where you guys got to take the MARLINS major league. Baseball takes the expos. They give you this interest free loan, and then of course Henry goes to Boston. I mean one of the all-time. Con Moves in the history of sports. I mean just an amazing three way deal that you guys benefited greatly from. If you would have went to Florida and if you would have become one of the best run franchises in baseball, if Jeffrey Loria would have been you know the the Micky Arison of of the baseball scene. If you guys would have been geared yourself to that market if they would have fallen in love with you if you have not done the fire sales. If you would have actually delivered on all your promises, this conversation could happen because you could have easily started. The conversation said to me. Me Look. It didn't work out a much. Because of the scene, the market, the limited partners the politics all that stuff more, but look at what we did in Florida. Look what we did in that community. Look at what we did with that franchise. The proof is in the pudding. We know how to run a team. We know how to be honest. We know how to actually do this the right way. But what actually happened you guys screwed Florida Worse Than Montreal. You guys left them with a bigger building than the city of Montreal and so everything that has happened after the fact after Montreal only. Only strengthens my point about what you guys intended to do in Montreal. Because what you did in Florida was almost as disgraceful, if not more disgraceful, the what you did to the city of Montreal. At least we don't have a bill to pay for the stadium that you guys made everyone pay him. Then ran out of time town with your one point two billion, so everything that you did in in Florida afterwards and south Florida only backs up everything that I'm trying to say trust I. Hope that everyone who's listening to this that knows about the Marlin situation understands that they were no different in Montreal. Montreal that everything that they did that. You know about them, and and and certainly have Jeff Passan wrote a great article about you guys, and how you were the greatest cons in the history of baseball, and I agree with every single point that he made what you did in Florida, only strengthens every single point that I've tried to make in this conversation because you are as big of Khan and Montreal as you were in Florida David final word. I'm so thankful Ariel that the people in Miami and Florida have an opportunity with their children, and with their families, and their friends go to game billion F. Area I mean in terms of like you say what he did, and I have major problems with the marlins organization won the world series and they did get that stadium that keeps that team here, so they did secure the future of Marlins baseball. Happy about paint. No, no, no, no, the taxpayers know all your points are valid and Major League baseball wanted to get a certain number of mine, and they brought in an owner that simply couldn't afford it and Derek. Jeeter thought that he could win. People over with Justice charm. There are so many problems with that franchise and there's a lot wrong with..

"And it seems as though I worked well with my Kale and eventually were to find with Dan Jennings so that that's not true. I didn't want Larry fired. I didn't think it was necessary to fire him at all. Okay but then you had. You've spoken about the inevitable. Breakup between Dan Jennings and the MARLINS. It didn't go well but you guys seemed fine now. Correct correct all right. Go ahead. David Samson the question was did Jeffrey. Loria hurt Larry Bind. Fess chances at getting another job after firing so. I can't say that there's a direct causal relationship between the things that Geoffrey said about Larry and whether or not Larry would have gotten a job. I think the much bigger factor was his age and his reputation as being sort of old school which in fact he wasn't we used analytics as much as anyone. We just didn't publicize it. We didn't need to be the Oakland A.'s. And saying how could we are the red sox that we've got people or the raise we had plenty of people doing analytics but in owners meetings the way it works is owners get together and they have talks games when they go to games and they they gossip and they talk so. I guarantee that Jeffrey made it be known to many owners that. Hey you don't want Larry Fest. Because he's not going to do what you want. He's going to give you a very hard time if he disagrees with you. He's going to try to do it his way. And if you aren't involved owner this is not the type of person you want as your GM. I am sure that happened. The irony is that Jeffrey was criticized for being a meddling owner. And when you put him next to the other twenty nine owners he was right within the standard deviation of every owner I ever met. I never appreciated the criticism of Jeffrey for being overly meddling. It bothered me. We signed bad players because of it but he was not alone by any stretch. So is it out of the realm of possibility that he would say to other owners. Hey Larry got in the way of my meddling. It drove me crazy. He supposed to work for me. I'm paying millions dollars and I have to hear them complain that he doesn't want John Buck. I don't WanNa hear it when I want to do something and I'm the owner I expected. Gm to just say great and many GM's rollover to this day many GM's roll over to their owners because it's the owner Larry Stock Rolling over and he got fired because of it and the other owners would have known that. Do you feel like Larry fields that Jeffrey poison the well yes. I had to ask you if you felt that way because I was GONNA ask. I can't ask Larry gotta ask you. Maybe we can do another episode with Larry. I'm sorry that was. That seemed difficult for you. There seems to be a lot of dynamics at play right now. When you when you work with people you have to understand. Think about the dynamics again. I just ask you to look at your own situation. Are there any dynamics within the shipping container within the people with whom you work and now go ten years David Samson hosts of nothing personal? We can't thank them enough trying to turn. I asked the question to your. David asked about point. Is that you work with people. You go through a lot of stuff together in baseball. You're together all year long. Since I spoke to Jeffrey no exaggeration every day for eighteen years I spoke to our president of baseball operations are GM person. Every day of the year we would speak. We'd see each other. We traveled together. You live together. You're closer to them than family. So if you're asking me at were their issues. Yes there were issues. Yeah No. It's tough that people don't know what it now. Imagine all those dynamics but cramming them in something that's dubbed a shipping container because its size and have that play out over fifteen years and four hours of content. Obviously you're going to have some interpersonal stuff makes in there when there's Publis Liz public involved there's media and then we were there. God forbid if we had been doing this at the height of social media like now you know when we were doing it it was before social media and social media was starting. We'd argue with our players about it. But the the fishbowl is so significant in sports because of people like you. Who assume you know how to do it better? At least you don't have many people calling you and saying hey I could host that show way better than you do some other. They may not be calling but they're posting on the read it. Well See I. Should I get a part of read? It no stay away for the love of God never go to that wretched hell scape. It's it's a good resource occasionally. They they certainly care but It's it's it's torturous negatively negatively on the read. It David Samson hosts nothing personal credit to you. You come here every week and you didn't have to answer that question. You could have easily gave me some line of Bullshit and we would have moved onto the next question but you answer that question honestly put in an awkward spot an I always appreciate you coming here and being honest and real hosts that Mike. I promised Dan that the first time I ever did the show with you guys which is now probably fifteen sixteen. Seventeen years ago that I will answer any question anytime. That's the first time today. You got me a little bit in that I was in. My mind. Wasn't even there that you would think to even ask it. Because why would you even? What's funny to me is people will think that we talked off. Air About our segment and we don't we just come on and have a conversation. You have no idea what I'm going to ask unless I t's it within that episode. Yeah I I certainly believe you a hell of a lot more now. I think for the audience. There was always this tug at. We'll peel back the curtain a little bit. Dan Always knows and Dan was the driver of the content. What a great guest. David Samson was how when you have four hours and you're shouldering the burden of content people like David are really invaluable to what you're doing as the producer there'd be all these things at play because we were getting being the home of the weekly David Samson show when David was not viewed favorably in the market was not the easiest thing we got it from our fans and David while he didn't have an angle to what what he was saying this episode of since he's been let go of the marlins certainly has problems with Derek deeter. He's been public about that. I always felt like while he was honest. With time with marlins there was always some sort of angle. He wasn't gonNA give us full honesty because he was obviously working on behalf of the MARLINS. And you've given voice to how much you did play the media and I didn't. I felt like at times we were upon in that and helping view something favorably when a lot of people felt betrayed by you. But now that you're out of it. Thank God for David Samson. You're hell of a guest. Well I appreciate that and just so you know that I believe that we had a mutual using sort of society between the Lebatardshow and and me. I think that you guys used used you and that can be the beginning of a beautiful friendship. Look at this David Samson's grown into an incredible friend of the local hour. I can't wait to see next week. We'll try to cover the Montreal. Expos you down for that. You have notes. Do you have your your crazy. John Does seven serial killer composite folks. I've got enough extra stories for you. Mikey that I can't believe your favorite players. Vladimir Guerrero is that he's one of my favorite because that's he's one of the most interesting players I ever had and there's some good stories about him. He's a good good man and I've seen him since he retired. I was in touch with him when he was with the angels after the Expos and after we left we fought. Just a little teaser. For next week we fought like crazy to take Vladimir Guerrero with us. When we went from Montreal to Florida we wanted to make a trade of Guerrero to the Marlins a prerequisite to doing that deal at is a hell of a teaser. From the host of nothing. Personal with David Samson David Samson one of the more memorable episodes we've done. I can't believe I got you speechless. Not many people can say. Do that. Input I'm putting that that's like something I hang up on my wall. It's incredible David Samson. Thank you so much. We'll talk to you next week pal..

"Their several cast members from citizen Kane who were born in the eighteen eighty S. How which blew my mind right thinking about the fact that it was from nineteen forty one and if you're sixty years old in that movie and there were plenty of older people in that movie they were born only twenty years after Lincoln got assassinated well so your takeaway from what is recognized. As the greatest film of all time my takeaway is that it does not make my top one hundred. The reason that does not is that I am absolutely prejudice against movies where I don't feel like it's a part of me is the same way how people look at my favorite movies of the eighties. People who were born in the seventies or eighties. Look at my favorite movies in. They say like say now most fire one of the great movies. You've got people watch it now and it just doesn't translate and when things don't translate it's like when you're on vacation farmland and you buy a piece of clothing that you think you love because you love it when you're there you bring it home you put it on you leave the house. Come right back in the house. Take it off and never wear it again. Like when I bought a cowboy hat when I was in Houston and San Antonio and then walking around Las Olas with a cowboy hat. You say wow I thought this would look better so I- citizen Kane's a great movie but for me it was not. It just doesn't make my list but I'm proud that I've seen it and I'm going to start watching some older movies. So I can broaden my cinematic arises David. I'm really upset that we have to let you go. It's a bummer. Because this week was good and I have so many questions. I'm glad we can agree at the end of this program. That you wearing a cowboy hat in Las Olas was indeed a bad. Look so David Samson. We will talk to you next week. Thanks Mike..
April Is Podcast Experiment Month
"I talked to you about abundance yesterday and podcasting from a place of abundance one of the benefits of having an abundance mindset. Is that you get to do weird things if you're not living hand to mouth in the thing that you're doing in your business and your art in your profession you whatever. You have some bandwidth to do interesting things. And that's why I am declaring April twenty twenty as podcast experimentation month okay. It's just me that made that declaration but nonetheless. I think it's a good idea and I'm hoping other people will jump onto this idea especially those working podcasters who have have finding themselves now with different circumstances maybe more time maybe less time whatever but just different circumstances especially because we're all as I said before locked inside let's experiment. Let's try different things. You can try for example experimenting the location of how you record. I saw great post on Reddit which I will linked to here in the episode details. That showed someone setup as they were podcasting now from their garden and it's great in a captured a totally different ambience. You can't go to the park and record but you certainly might be able to go into your backyard or your garden or some other place and capture the sounds around you. Maybe you could also changed location by podcasting in a different section or room of your house. You know each room. Each area has a different tonal quality. Maybe that will enhance what you'd maybe you're podcasting from the exact wrong place in your home. There's a much better place. Maybe it's in your car which you have driven in two weeks right. As long as you're not under a shelter in place order you might be able to go take a walk and take your recording year with you. Take your phone with you find a way to get your microphone on your phone working together look. Amazon and sweetwater and BMW are still shipping equipment. So if you need to Bhai dangles red actors to do things give it a shot capturing the noises and sounds of your neighborhood again. Staying six feet away from people can make an interesting addition to your show. You can experiment on different equipment. I just mentioned calling up all their from places. But if you're like me you probably have more microphones than you know what to do with. I talk on an SM seven. Be Every time I do this show. But why wouldn't I break out that Samson? Cue To you that I bought because it was cheap. And give it a shot. Gaza mess him fifty eight. I've got some level and microphones. Heck I even have an old blue snowball which might have an interesting character. Wanted these days Maybe I'll try that or what about the other equipment that you have that you might not be completely familiar with a lot of people still like to use the. Blue Yeti microphone and fine okay but do me a favor now during April podcast experimentation month. See exactly how it works. Those three settings on the back that you think you know. Try them out. Try Different things with them. Try Different Mike placements. Maybe don't put it in the middle of the table and shouted across the room. Maybe try it differently or if you need to open up the manual. See exactly what that thing you have. That piece of equipment is designed to do and are you using it the right way. Now's a great time to experiment with that. You can also experiment with a voices on your show. Are Your kids at home? Like all too many. I have had to cut out a lot of kids. Sounds for some of the shows that we help engineer around here but maybe bringing those kids all on would be kind of fun. I have heard some cool podcasters who are trying that using what they have. Maybe now's a great time to bring on Co hosts or guests if you just do a monologue show like to. Maybe that's a way to play it with new voices on your program.
Voice Development and the Creative Process with Ilarna Nche
"Today I have the honour talking to Alana Chad who's a voice developer. Whose boiled many many different experiences for Alexa. Google and bixby. And what really impressed me about Lorna is her creativity and all the things that she's done with voice. Some really really excited to talk to her alarm. Why don't you introduce yourself? Hi everyone my name is Alana. I am twenty four years old. I am working on voice. Assistance will be free is now and I recently graduated from the University of Kent For Year pursued. Waste Industry Kind of Siebel where it was all about added Paid off and I've recently been announced Alexa champion and will serve Recently announced as bixby develop theories. Well said a very pleased with how guarding. I'm glad I took the the junk ready grades. And congratulations on being the bixby developer. The air at project voice and Being Alexa champion. That's quite an accomplishment of I have to ask you. What did you get your degree in technology degree or completely different? Yes so I was down that route of going into university in thinking what do I actually want to do and I never I? I was at the point where we have to decide what route you wanted to go down. I'd never really done any of computer science or anything up until hours around sixteen years old because they didn't ready introduce that into into schools much so it wasn't until I was sixteen. Monday introduced Him It's like a high school the high school side at. That's what I saw and I was like. Wow I wanna try it and I kind of not with the whole computer science as and I knew then I wanted to do something in that field but did I want to do it as a job. So that's why I chose. Degree weather is very broad so it. It kind of varies from Web Design to games designed to photography reading modeling like any module any cool secret drink. It was very very broad. Silos able to be like take if I liked it will hide the just will not go down that route because I actually did want to do reading log lane. I thought was really cool. What I saw the course at Casino Harry possible violence the Pixar than when I came to ours like actually this is quite hard and also quite you have to patients because you'll be making a ten second clip in the whole time. I literally I. I have the patience with that. So I did like the whole mobile application development and everything else that came with the coolest so I tied down the the programming side. That's how I kind of figured out went to be in fields. Great you know I encourage people to go explore different things and try things out right because who knows I think should reinvent yourself every end years and figure out what really excites you and go pursue it and even if that means a big change so good for you to try a bunch of things and and you landed on something you enjoy for right now and Yeah go pursue it so learn by my count you created twelve different Vicky capsules and they arrange everything. There's some educational capsules was capsules. Fitness. There's an. As Amara capsule yes in Quiz Games. Can you describe a couple of those big speak capsule in experiences? Yes with with big beat being so new and that the market is well. I I wanted to basically kind of see which type of capsule John kind of like making the Live at the mall one. It was simply something. I bake these experiences to me some cause before I related to other people by decided. Let's take an approach. Like make them for myself. I would you so I'm a big fan of they. Samah I love going to sleep to the mall and I noticed that there are no asleep. Sound experiences out that the A very big market. When look on Youtube for example a lot of people do love a law on it so different to ambient noises because of the whole experience is supposed to deliver this brain light tingle to grain and relax your brain so I wanted to make one and the best thing about putting it on bixby. Robin like Youtube is that we've topped the screen on and you're trying to get to bed the light shining in the room at least if you put it on a voice platform than kind of eliminate the whole having to have screen on and you can just listen away and go to sleep at sun baths with the small one with education. I've kind of always with me being in education for so long you kind of It's kind of a nice way to just keep shop and keep lining whether is learning a language learning maximum stuff stuff that you kind of need to keep learning with at and also fitness. I never really did many experiences and I wanted to see especially when it comes to the end of Christmas. Everyone's not fitness mentality. And you always WANNA keep so i. I've never tried one of my capsules. I made my yoga. I never done yoga before. But I forbid good. experienced Yoga positions as well as make something. I could use to win. You know I love it when people say they built something for themselves she we're talking about. Am tomorrow the Yoga Capsule Education Capsules Unit? You sound found personal benefit to these any wanted to share it and always find that when you build from the heart something you just do your much more motivated and it really really shows in the quality of what you build so great great job you touch them. This a little bit alarmed. But how did you first get involved with building for voice? What what motivated you to to build for this new medium. The main difference the main encouragement life for me to get into voice was honestly. I did that Michael sweaters on full of different modules. And I I knew that where I struggled was with visual graphic design and I love my lapse. I really did want from that. Was My design Like designing the the APP so visuals so when we Amazon dot came out. I notice that you could speak to it. And it will these skills and I didn't realize it was a third party developer. Who'd made these this experience so i. I love learning skills. I'm always up for landing anything so when I when I saw you could make one yourself. I jumped at the opportunity and I started building. It was really simple experience. It was gang could odds on why you would not match the same number of Alexia so that was by really enjoyed Also collected have to think about the design side of things so fast already love love voice. Yeah that's great so it sounds like followed your strengths so I was gonna ask you. What your first voice experience was. But you said it was the odds-on is that still out on the skill store. I had I had no idea still lacking yeah. I think we all have our first things that we built. They think the first thing ever built is a jokes scale. I don't know if you're not have to go check. But when and how did I get started developing bixby itself? Yeah so I was invited to be developer partner program and yet I was told you want to start developing on BEC- speak I had heard expe- before the the the sound on Samson Introduced to the essay the Galaxy S. nine and I was like of course anew scaled the I'd just I just love learning anytime some of that. Something I'm like. Yes for and then the Simpson team. What me on. Everything the ide- e the Bixby Studio hand it kind of was very very intimidating fast. Because I was like a new platform is different syntax using bid. I'd never hundred full but I think it made it easier once I once I kind of just in that whole Amazon Mine Alexa. Mind watching the fall but once I remember that was we did not. You did a tutorial that Webinar with the horoscopes. A yeah actually. I think it might have been atom uncharted the Horoscope to Joyal few. It was about horoscopes. But yeah coding without him. Yeah yeah it was yeah Lebanon end it was like Every helped so I always say like a lot to learn. Visually visual linings. Always our big eight for me. I I kind of documentation is good with support. The I thought visual AIDS so when there's a lot of videos stuff out there examples not the example is really helpful. It really helped kind of move my Experience with big speak

That a data breach within Samsung was linked to the number one notification and then Samson acknowledged that the data breach had occurred but in fact the one notification had nothing to do with the data breach so two separate things happens. You have misfired number one notification The breach in question affected less than one hundred fifty accounts.

Oh my gosh. You can't possibly bring a service dog into this environment. It's too dangerous so sadly there are a lot of science science faculty that are reluctant to allow anyone with a disability into stem or science and When you have a service dog UGH That that makes it an even bigger problem from the moment you walk in.

Three funerals doing within the leaf they pull rehearse with big spoked wheels and light pink curtain toppers with tassels hanging from the top of the glass window on every side. It was an idea that Mason and his dad had to give community members that last ride. That's not all the horses to though. They're also helping people to heal nestled in the snow. Coated trees to the east of Patrick's barn is another project with his son. Mason came back and then he started making pass and clearing the bush and we bought a cabin set up a TV. They call it was dossier village. It's a place ace where people visit to confront their trauma. Going for a ride in a wagon with a team of horses is a very therapeutic. It's very healing going for a horseback ride. It's very therapeutic therapeutic. So that's what we offer here is Is that I am experience. It's so peaceful there it's like Like being somewhere else. Oh Patrick says his son needs to be doing this work for his own wellbeing and others so mason does have a strong villa vision for healing although he struggled in his own ways continuously. You know because he's had his own experiences ever since he was a child that he has to continue. Continue to deal with And it's no different and all with the the sixteen thousand people that live in this community and everybody's been hurt everybody's been everybody's stuck in a Rut. Not Knowing how to get unstuck. He knows what he needs to do and when he's doing it yes I feel good care when we can work as a team. I feel good
Chris Urmson: Aurora CEO - Autonomous Driving
"Hello and welcome to our first episode of behind. Find The tech in twenty twenty. I'm Christina Warren. Senior cloud advocate at Microsoft. And I'm Kevin Scott all right so Kevin. It is twenty twenty which Shh is both the new year and I guess a new decade although people will get weird technicalities and it's always a great Chance to kind of look back at what's happened over the last ten years and reflect on new opportunities. Yeah I mean I it. Is I think in their industry and for human beings in general really easy to get completely used to new innovations that in our lives. But like when you think back ten years ago the world looked like a very different place than it looks right now so smartphones were just catching on. They were nowhere near as ubiquitous as they are all right now and the things that you could do on them were far far more constrained than they are right. Now I mean for. For God's sake people were renting movies from blockbuster In two thousand ten right very blockbuster was actually still a thing and instagram hadn't even been invented yet. Coley different world you know I do now that we've hit twenty twenty. Do you have any forecasts about what the next year intact might bring her even the next decade. Well well I think one of the themes that we spent a bunch of time chatting about last year on the podcast was artificial intelligence machine learning and I think we are are certainly going to see the trends that that had started in the prior year's continue to accelerate as one of the reason why I'm really interested in chatting with our guest today So autonomous vehicles. For instance. I believe are going to make AK- ton of progress over the next couple of years in particular and I'm really looking forward to seeing some of that stuff. Play out yes I couldn't agree more. It's funny I don't have a driver's license But I've actually been on a few self driving car panels over the years and I I think the technology she behind it is so fascinating. Which is why? I'm really really excited about your conversation with today's guest. Chris Armstrong and Chris is an engineer. Who's known for his work in pioneering self driving car technology? Yeah and you know one of the reasons that I'm especially interested in self driving cars and I'm looking forward to this conversation that we're about to have Chris is that There's so many ways that the world is going to change for the good once we we are able to put this technology into the hands of lots of different companies so One of the things that will hear about Aurora's. They are a company building the self off driving car technology as a platform for other companies to use to build autonomous applications. And so you know one of the things that I'm sorta hopeful for that will come into the world in the not-too-distant future is some technologies. That may help my grandmother. So I'm I'm lucky enough to have a grandma that's still still alive. She's eighty nine years old and lives in a very rural place in Virginia And she can still drive which is awesome but the day is coming where she's not going to be able to To drive her car car in the same way that she is right now and Like then it begs the question of how she has access to all of the things that she needs in order to help her live and independent life. So how does she get her prescription medicines. Like how does she get her groceries and You know just just sort of the staple things that she needs to exist. And one of the things that I think could be really incredibly beneficial with these self driving thing. Technologies is Like the possibility that you'll be able to have autonomous deliveries for people like my grandmother. I think you're absolutely right. I think the potential for the stuff is really fantastic. So let's hear more about some of the potential for this technology from Chris Aronson Guest today is Chris. Samson Christie's the CO founder and CEO Vera accompanied the bill self driving vehicle technology before founding Aurora he was CTO. Google self driving car program prior to that. Chris was a faculty member of the Robotics Institute at Carnegie Mellon University where he was the technical director of the Darpa urban and grand challenge teams. I'm really excited to hear what he's up to these days. Hey Chris the the show. Thanks for having me so I love to start by learning how you got interested in technology in the first place as a kid. Were you taking engineering classes or programming classes when you were in high school. So are you discover that in college back. When I was in high school there wasn't really computer science at high school And so I Bought Oughta some kind of Tandy x eighty six clone or whatever Back when I was in probably ninth or tenth grade from money for my paper route A- and you know tried to learn to program at first where you go you know you don't if you recall this but you go to the bookstore and you'd buy You know this paperback for Back Book. That was program whatever it was and it was just the source code listing and this before C. D. Roms even pete which people probably don't even remember that that's right we Before that actually bought a commodore sixty four and of course that was exciting. Because it didn't have tape drive right right or it didn't have a floppy drive floppy yeah and five and a quarter inch. Discs that's what had YEP YEP so anyway so we was doing that and then this language C. Plus plus which seemed to be the hot new thing And so started. Actually the first programs I really learned with C. Plus plus. Wow that's rough. Yeah yeah it was a little crazy. A I mean I guess on some some level like CPS was challenging lodging first language. But the good thing is after you've mastered as downhill it's all downhill And so did. Did you know from all of this experience in high school that you wanted to get a computer science and engineering. Gary you know up in Canada so apply to you you know variety of schools got into into a couple of them And then in my senior here I met a girl Turns out now. She's my wife. And decided I wanted to stay at the University of Manitoba which is right in central Canada and Manitoba and got into the computer engineering? School computer. Seem like you know they had a future.
What we know about Samsung's latest device - the Galaxy S20
"Hype. Train is a role in already when it comes at a Galaxy S.. Twenty just screw. Never Yeah I was GONNA say yeah. Eleven hundred nineteen doesn't matter. We're going straight to twenty. My speculation is that they just wanted to coincide with what the year is. So twenty. Twenty one twenty two twenty three Yeah and then thirty thirty thirty one. Who knows if they make another leave? I'M GONNA raise my hands up and just go frigate like seriously. Yeah that's like no one cares anymore like why does anything matter anymore but it seems that this does matter because a lot of trends. WE'RE GONNA start coming up because of this particular device some things. We already have some expectations. Patience for the processor snapdragon sixty five all these things So I wanted to get what your thoughts are. I mean. Obviously you do work. which was the website that ended up up leaking a lot of the information on it? So you probably have a little bit more to say are at least some more reactions than most Since you're kind of in the trenches with with it so I wanted to see what your thoughts are. Are you hyped for the three versions of the twenty. I am ultra all the way my friend I am. I am not not to say anything's wrong with the standard twenty. Plus I am. I'm going for the ultra. I know pretty much what I'm I'm Priori the moment that was T. mobile's will start even taking pre orders hours. I will be calling in putting down my money right there. The excitement of what we get with every year with the line of devices between the two impact that Samsung has the s line will always get the most amount of attention. It's because most people will go for the. It's the and as you said it's a transcendent. A lot of people use now attempts on does you. The the curvature the display type of technology and the despite the size of the phone a lot of people are starting to feed into it and I appreciate that as not that long ago before Samsung was in that same position everything was basically married only to IOS. Now Samson's doing their thing. I think the ultra. I think it's a great opportunity for us to see what they can push. Hopefully a refresher better something more exciting than just a standard upgrade of already unite already seen obviously how strong or how powerful the eight sixty five is going to be. I did some benchmarks and I play some games while we were at the QUALCOMM event back to last year so to me processor wise under the hood. I WANNA see all the new features. There's I want to see. How the new decks implementations going to be a lot of people are talking about that? I'm also the fact that I think we start. We lost on decks which is something that also something and a lot of people may be surprised to see But I think yeah just the form factor capacity battery functionality. I WanNa see basically you know what. What can andy do with those cameras? That's the other thing Cameras have always been a great source of You know enjoyment out of Samsung devices because they do provide you good pictures. I'm not like I say they're the best on the market But I want to be able to see you know four sixty out of the front facing camera. I want to be able to see all those extra things that we just basically makes the experienced appearance just enjoyable and hopefully the color science and there is going to be really good but as far as leaks. Yeah if you're gonNA find out almost anything about what's going to happen even down to video from hands on video with it. Short video was like wow like the fact that anyone could even get I mean okay. I'm not the kind of person listen. who gets into the leaks heavy? Because I'm not really into that. I want to be able to if I'm GonNa let we just talked about if I'm gonNA spend the money to go to an event you want the event to hit me like it should rather than me sitting there. Going ha ha. Yeah for sure I knew about that I. I don't like that you know and I know a lot of users out. There are probably into the holy culture and all that and that's fine. I'm totally cool with that. It's just it for me I. It's funny because I'm kind of shooting shooting yourself in the foot when it comes to having this mentality because it means I wanna make content on all of this stuff I mean. I know everything that other people know so I'm kind of coming into it with fresh eyes so I get some comments on my channel channel like. Oh you didn't know about that. I'm like no I didn't. That's that's how I want to live like I would prefer to have it that way. You want to enjoy it. You want to actually get the experienced. That's the whole point of Donelson in announcement that or even having an event like unpacked I think those are the big things but there's still obviously you want some excitement it right then. I think that's why if you're a little bit of little bit of leaker. Excitement is good but when the Pixel three a type of a leak or when we have you know everything but literally you know what size screw. They're using on the bottom part of the on the bottom panel. I it's it's hard it's hard. It's hard to either stay away from it but be kind of still. Have that excitement about it. So that's why I feel like even though there's a lot of information there I take it with a grain of salt. All of this stuff is based on leaks. It could be early generation generation Early versions of the hardware before he was even finalized And you know of course Samson is always known with software to because not a lot of things we're covering our software specific yeah We got a little bit of look into some of the modes and the camera but again all of those things will have to be on on unveiled at packed
Samsung has an invisible keyboard that you can use with your phone
"I do love. Oh keyboards stay tuned for the arena And Samsung unveiled keyboard. That's got my attention at CBS. Despite the name They unveiled the Selfie. Oh Fi type which uses along with the phone camera to detect your hands on an invisible keyboard on the table in front of you? It was developed at an in house incubator for strange ideas. The may someday become commercially available. And they've got demos. CBS and we've seen this before in like sci-fi and things like that. I forget the show or the movie. But it's a keyboard that projects on the table. And you and you just type on the table on the camera. Picks it up amazing. The Samsung has has made this into who reality. And I want this so normally I'm not so pro Samson. Signed me
Bitcoin and Sound Money Deep Dive with Blockstream's CSO Samson Mow
"Right. What is up up all you good citizens of nation? We have probably one of the most special guests that we've ever had on the show today. We are honored to introduce you to him. I'm Bryce your host. I'm joined by my compadres pizza. Mind as always say what's up. I put on my nice clothes for this interview and that is to say I am wearing clothes. We are joined by the chief strategy officer of WLAC stream of WHO everybody. WHO's listening to this owes a lot to? They are some of the core developers For the bitcoin core software that runs the BITCOIN. That everybody knows and loves Samson welcomed the show. Thanks thanks for having me you are very welcome. Welcome and Let's just kick it off with. I'm just super interested personally about how you got into Bitcoin. You've been the space for so long. And how did you golve into your role as chief strategy officer at block stream right so I guess I I Heard Bitcoin I think in twenty thirteen just reading about it online. Fine and I got involved. I guess officially when I joined. BTC China which was the largest exchange. At that time I think amount gawks imploded in a lot of people just just moved over to BBC China and we rebranded laid onto BTC. So you might have seen that name but it's a ramp down a lot since I've left I think and end in two thousand seventeen joined block stream to focus on liquid and getting liquid launched. That's amazing and tell us a little bit about what block streams role role in the industry. As I think everybody's familiar with them. But what's the actual you know from the Horse's mouth what what's the role so typically we say we are a Bitcoin IT infrastructure company and that could mean all different things to different people but for us. It means we're working on Augmenting Bitcoin so love our tech is at the base layer protocols stuff we also work on things like lightning network. So we are. One of the three major implementations would see lightning But we do a lot of other stuff too. Do we have wallets o'clock explorer. Basically things that we think could make bitcoin more robust and of course blocks from satellite which as another layer layer of redundancy to the bitcoin network. So it doesn't depend on terrestrial Internet so just in case someone's first episode that they're listening to. Would it be fair to say that that block stream is to bitcoin. What McDonald's hamburgers like you just can't have one without the other? I mean you could say that I mean there's other other companies that make hamburgers by out makes way better hamburgers. You kidding me. McDonald's but McDonald's is worldwide over billions and billions served. Well we do focus on bitcoin predominantly. So everything is somehow related to bitcoin. We don't work on coins or enter a block chain stuff awesome. Yeah that makes a lot of sense. So I've seen you speak at several conferences and I love how you talk about Bitcoin. As a settlement network as opposed to what everybody thinks is a payments network. And it's a concept that a lot of people don't really understand so you could you break down this idea for for us. Sure so bitcoins. Design is really to settle because a block has generated roughly every ten minutes but it is not necessarily ten minutes it it could be more. It could be an hour sometimes or sometimes even longer than that or could be three blocks and ten minutes and you can't really have a payments network. That is so unreliable. You can walk into a store. Buy Something for thousand dollars in you guys. Wait there until itself just doesn't work that way. At least. I don't know any stores that would do that. So you could could take us your confirmation Results has a confirmation than that is not secure. It could be spent so by design. BITCOIN is not payments. If it was payments it would be lightning right now. But it's not I guess it has to do a lot with the name of the white paper because the Toshitaka motive. I said you know Should appear electric cash and I think a lot of people have forgotten what cash means cash is a bear asset. If you have have cash in hand it's your cash and while buying a coffee with cash is easy. It's cheap been free I have like ten ten bucks in my pocket. I go and spend it and I didn't lose anything. There's friction sometimes people. Forget that if you wanted to move large quantities of money in cash it would actually be very very very difficult so if you wanted to move a hundred thousand dollars in cash. You'd need a backpack if you wanted to move a million dollars in cash it. Will you need an armored truck so it gets very unwieldy. The bigger it goes so bitcoin is our cash. It's a bad thing if you have bitcoin. It's your bitcoin and it is better than cash because it can be digitally transmitted but have that same property speaking kind of cash. Can you give us a comparison between sound hard money and easy Fiat money. Sure so I like to use goal arrison and it. It just makes it easier for people to understand because everyone knows what gold is in that gold is valuable a nice cat So gold is down the money because it cannot be printed out of thin air whereas fee currencies can be printed at will that's the definition of feet. which is you know from nothing but gold actually has to be mind needs to be processed and it needs to be secured so that is a large amount to why it is some money because it's not easy to get whereas fee it? It's easy to get and just because people don't understand what money is these days it's a Is Easy to manipulate too because they can inflate the supply a quantitative ease or repo or any number of tools to manage. And what are some metrics that you guys are using to track the success of the BITCOIN network. Well I don't think we lost your mark tracking the success of the bitcoin network uh-huh But there's a lot of metrics that you can look at. You can look at on chain transaction volume obviously you can look at the price You can look at the market depth across exchanges Let people get market CAP. But that's not really that meaningful market is a more interesting metric because it shows how much you can actually buy and sell in aggregate and I guess another metric could be transaction fees so every day. The bitcoin coin at work is paying minors Hundreds of thousands of dollars in transaction fees. And that shows it's healthy because eventually fees will need to replace the subsidy I would mix block stream so special. In addition to all that is there's actually several usable live products now or ninety nine percent of everyone else. In the CRYPTO industry might be working still on their very first one and one of the most important products that you guys put out recently is the liquid network. Can you tell us about what the liquid network is and why it's important so the liquid network is an inter exchange settlement network. It's a way to move money quickly. Mu Bitcoin quickly between Exchanges as well as token is assets. So we have A weight issue now sit in liquid. We're calling them. Issued assets or liquid assets. So you can have something like a stable coin such as a tether or Japanese yen stable coin which is being worked on by one of our partners as well as Canadian. Dollar coin Along with other tokens assets too. So you can. Also do security tokens antiquated. which would be controlled in certain ways through weightless and with permissions or a utility token which could be used to say replace a game currency which is also something being worked on by a company called but liquid? There's a lot of different things but what it ultimate ears is fast settlement and we have a lot of exchanges already integrated along with financial institutions OTC desks brokers and also companies. That just WANNA do Tokens as well but you can move. bitcoin quickly from exchange eighty so we just announced the bitsy announced yesterday they integrated so now you can move between biff next bitsy in two minutes which is great arbitrage opportunities or being able to take your funds off exchange in store them in a wallet so say blocks green which is our bitcoin wallet that supports liquid as well. So you can put money onto exchange ticket often you done trading and you don't have to worry about the third party risk. They have your money in their risk at that point You can move on quickly. So let's say you got a margin call To Bounce back then you can do so quickly without having to wait for bitcoins blocks to come out every ten minutes or so
The best of 2019: hardware better than software
"Story of the year is that I think this year we saw Paul Hardware beat software so for longtime we've seen software companies trying to get into hardware and hardware companies trying to get into software. I think the best example of that will be Google Google trying to get into making pixels and I think there has been an assumption for many years that because Google is so good software at AI at camera processing algorithms and and all the stuff that they will start making phones and become the champion of everything and we've actually seen that year whereafter year. They've had trouble making really good hardware and that flashy hardware and big specs and and beautiful designs in the end a a tend to perform better than than even the best software on the market so we see companies like me for example who've become hugely popular uh with very good hardware good prices or or even hallway who despite having all their softer issues continues to do incredibly well or Samson who despite all of the immaturity of the software and the galaxy fold managed to sell a million devices so I think My story of of the year is that hardware. Was the key driver in business success in in in tech this year. So my first question to you then is is it is it because the hardware was so much better than in previous years or because the software is no longer the limiting factor so that the hardware can really stand out. I think just in general the the consumers might just care more. We're about hardware than they care about software this point I mean you you. You essentially have companies catching up with whatever google is doing on the processing side within a year or two two and the benefits of of software. Supremacy are not very obvious to the consumer when they make the purchase whereas device. It looks beautiful. Oh and device that folds out into tablet or device that costs half as much and has the right expects. I think those are much more obvious selling points for most
"samson" Discussed on The Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz
"ESPN radio all throughout the day shipping container filling in for Bannon's to God's today and we're joined by former MARLINS team team president in front of the show. David Samson David. Thank you for joining us. Hey how you doing. I thought we were not calling me that anymore. Oh she just wanted to go tavis. David Yeah sorry sparky host of nothing personal with David. Sampson joins US now. Thank you for joining us working. Hey how you guys doing good. I wanted to ask skew. Something so report came out a couple of weeks ago that Minor League Baseball might be contracting somewhere in the area of forty two teams. And I've always it's been curious as to how Minor League Baseball works in terms of affiliation with Major League clubs. Because obviously you have the same players coming up through the pipeline line through these minor league teams. So I'm assuming that the major league clubs pay for contracts and stuff but don't minor league teams also have minor league owners. That guests are in charge of promotions and stuff like that. Yeah and owning a minor league team is quite profitable because they don't have to pay for the players and this is not about contracting minor league teams there is such a bad. Pr Going on that. It's almost like the marlins. Pr People are in charge of PR situation. What's really happened is that there has to be agreement between Major League Baseball? Minor League Baseball and part of the agreement is what. MLB want is better accommodations for the minor league players. Better travel just better field conditions working conditions and better locations and if they contract team which they're not going to what they're going to do is make it so if a team is no longer affiliated with Minor League Baseball they'll they'll still have a team in that community but it'll be part of a different independently so it's not as though these communities like Bernie Sanders said in his letter to Rob Manford. It's it's not like these communities are GONNA lose baseball. That is unless the minor league owner wants to move the team himself so the teams would still exist. It just wouldn't be affiliated with Major League. Baseball's what you're saying thing he'll be affiliated with major league baseball but not with a Major League Baseball Team Independent Baseball does do pretty big business. I know that Savannah Bananas in his or a success story so these would just be part of Independent League's going forward. I guess if they choose and if they if well chosen for them it's all part of an agreement between MLB and the minor leagues and they're just beginning to negotiate. But what what what people have been hanging onto with this work contraction and then the number forty two. I guess gets Clemente's number. So everyone's all Jackie Robinson's number. I'm sorry so everyone's up in arms over the number but it's not really going to be forty team fit disappear off the face of the earth it we'll be. They'll be affiliated with a specific team but in a different league but so players remember guide. There's two hundred minor league players and every major league franchise and guess how many of them have a chance to make it to the big leagues out of two hundred. What would you say one hundred ninety to know if you have a great organization and I mean great fifty the other one hundred and fifty are man? You are people who are getting paid to be professional minor league players who have hero chance dance hero chant of sniffing the Big League Club House. I think the value and Minor League baseball though isn't that as pipeline to get the players because I mean you know a lot of these people are going to be career career minor leaguers. It's the fact that there's only really what thirty teams in Major League Baseball. And then you have states like California that has five teams Texas with to Pennsylvania with two. You have certain cities that have two teams so like having these minor league teams are the only teams at smaller towns. Get so there is value in that. I think when you're trying to grow the game of baseball because because you have a little town like you know wherever in the middle of Wyoming where you can find a major league player who may not be interested in baseball of his town didn't have a team. I mean that's really Nice James Earl Jones and I appreciate the sentiment and I'm really. I'm hearing over here. But they're in reality. If there's a player in Wyoming you can be a major leaguer. Scouts GonNa find them and bring them to a place where they develop major leaguers wards and Zach Lowe reported last week that the NBA is looking at pretty huge changes to not only the playoff structure with a seating in the conference finals. But also the introduction of a midseason. Fa Cup style tournament meant that separate from the normal game schedule. Whatever it is they decide on? What do you make of this house is GonNa fly with the NBA p. a. and is it a smart decision? I'm actually going to talk about this. Nothing personal today Later on today when I do my show because Jane Party came out publicly yesterday saying I. I don't WanNa play in the tournament in the middle of the season I want an NBA championship. So what Adam silver date here. The commissioner of basketball is. He talked about negotiations with the players. Union that are ongoing about shortening the regular season about actually increasing the number of playoff teams and lengthening the playoff off-season with a play in set of games. which is the most important picnic from all of these negotiations is at the NBA wants to copy mlb with that? Wildcard Wildcard play in game because every TV network wants to buy that from a League because People Watch Elimination Games and then the concept of the season tournament. It's trying to Redo the All Star game in trying to again get another. TV property that they can lead can sell. But if you don't have player by in you're gonNA have a problem. Talking to David Samson four MARLINS team president check out his podcast five days a week will. That's not what it's called. You can check it out five days a week. It's called nothing personal with David. Oh and he also is really into movies. He reviews movies with us every week on the local hour. David what movie or documentary reviewing today documentaries are movie. Maybe you don't need an or but here's what I did last night and it and it blew me away I. I've never done yoga. I'm a marathon runner. I love running. But there was something net flicks. They caught my attention. It was called Bickram Yogi Guru Predator so. I didn't know whether I had no idea what this was. So it turns out. There's a guy named BIC Rom who is knee. Yoga instructor of the world like he came up with twenty six opposes. And Tim breathing exercises and you go into a room where it's one hundred twenty degrees and you're wearing nothing but you're skivvies. He's wearing nothing but speedo. Oh leaving nothing to the imagination. Except he's got a little air conditioner unit on him alone he puts the microphone. Tells all these women and some men to do these anything so everything's going great. It's spreading around the world. He is rich and famous. Tea Is what Robin Leach started his TV show or and and that's not referencing. I apologize he was living a lifestyle of the rich and famous. It turns out that Vikram is a sexual predator. And with assaulting the women who would take his glasses and all these women came forward and now bickram spoiler alert fled the country because he lost a lawsuit and did not want to pay so it is a awful story about a man who had the power over these women like like a cult leader who is basically genuflected by all of these women genuflect in front of him and it turns out his main interest was not and helping them with Yoga it within helping himself to their body. Allow me to be a companyman here for a second until you supplementary. You should check. Check out the thirty for thirty PODCASTS. On bickram Yoga called Bickram. It is fantastic..
"samson" Discussed on The Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz
"Oh it's a long time coming so the only reason I kind of stuck with it is because I just recently closed on a house and needed to show that gainful employment Roy Moore longevity there and now that I have the keys in hand the processes in motion and You know the last piece of this is wanted you guys to get involved but very very quickly I do have a limited fake Andrew Luck if you have a moment for it go ahead. Happy June so I I also had another question. I was calling in. How many rings is appropriate considerate You know to to ring. If that's not going to voicemail I I felt bad staying on the line so long it just listening to it ring. Does it ring on your end or is it just black flashes. Okay Gotcha. Well Yeah so back to the job thing so yeah I am getting ready to give my notice Today will actually be my last day in the office. I work remotely tomorrow. I'm on vacation all all next week. So the Monday before Thanksgiving At our nine o'clock meeting I I wanna go ahead and let them know you know. Thanks but no thanks. I'm getting out of here and I was just wondering how would you guys quit a job. ooh I I would love to hear how billy would quit a job I mean did you have to you. Had to quit Victoria. Secret regret right. I gave my two weeks notice and I worked two weeks and I said thank you and I worked the two weeks and then I moved onto the next job. So how would you quit a job that you know. The the people are are are terrible. You're being successful but not really being set up for success. How would you get out of that thing? Well you know you you want to work in the future and people sometimes talk to pass employers. So don't you want it to end on a positive note like just because you have poor like bad thoughts about this place doesn't mean you WanNa have it on your resume that you curse out the place. Are you planning on staying in a similar field. You don't WANNA burn bridges. Business can sometimes especially if you operate in the same mm field like for instance we work in media. It can be a very incestuous business for instance. I'm terrified one day. My has will cross with a former program director Well well actually. They never will getting but either way. You WanNa try to do your best to protect some relationships because you never know who's going to be in charge when you're desperate very very true. I am staying in the same field this new opportunity that I have. I had it back in October. I've met with him several times. Gone out for drinks going for lines You know they. They didn't care about the the references from my past job You know I my my social media outlet leading. This is kind of embarrassing to say is Lincoln. I'm not on instagram. I'm not on Other than the professional shorties. Yeah so Hey that wasn't my. I beat by the way who beeped at me funding. I don't know what we can do with this call. It's probably going to be in the podcast but we're ruined for you okay. Well fantastic guys. It was it was great to chat with you Happy join and I will talk to you guys leaders hope. He's better than that. Angela compression because that was awful man. It's been it's been rough. Go of it today on the local hour. Should we just talked to David Samson for forty minutes goal today. I'm not really sure Roy. Oh I can save it. Yeah I believe that this NFL NFL trial for Colin Cabinet is a sham. Why are we doing this on a Saturday scouts owed? We're going to college. Athletes should be doing on Tuesday. They were really serious about this. It's a complete utter sham. That's just my opinion. Why is he tweeting like he was tweeting? It out like you know promoting it like. It's a good thing. If if he was skeptical of it. Why wouldn't he be like? I don't want your Santa more like a surprise but at this point he'll take he can get this is he's got his show that he just wants a chance. That's what he's been saying on social media and this is I mean as diluted a chance as it may seem now especially after for that information. It's still an opportunity right. It is accepts the main scouts for each team. That's GONNA tend or call the stadium so that means bringing underlings billings by have very low. There's job I think that's a little bit of speculation on our part we don't know exactly which each club is said. has sent out there. We're assuming that there's been travel plans set for college. But we don't know the actual particulars there. We do know that it's not no coaches head. Coaches are going to be out there because they got games to prepare teams on a bi week general managers. It seems as though this all got thrown together very quickly and there's some teams that are just sort of confused by the whole thing. I know the media's confused by the whole thing Colin doesn't seem to confuse by it he just seems eager for the opportunity already. This Colin Kaepernick now He's he's up there. I mean he hasn't played yeah. Is He thirty two only while he looks at thirty two. Okay just turned thirty so yeah I thought I thought might have been near thirty four so yeah. There's still plenty plenty of time for him so driving in today and it's raining and there's a bus stop but it's one of these bus stops that's the doesn't have any cover so it's just people bull sitting in the rain waiting for a bus and there's four different people and three of them had umbrellas and then one person is just standing bear in the rain and I drove by. I thought to myself if I was one of those three people. Are you guys sharing your umbrella. And that's granted it's someone you don't know so it's awkward if you share your umbrella. You're you're all of a sudden in this really close find space with someone you have no idea who they are. But it's just I feel like it's just common decency like I am. I the only one crazy I was driving by. I wanted to like roll down my window and be like hey let him in wanted to roll down your window not give him your umbrella. Why didn't have someone else didn't have have my umbrella? I actually bought one walking in. I'm saying that these people were jerks for not offering there. There is some guy. Just sit there in the rain. And they're just enjoying their stay. I'll all covered billy. You sharing your umbrella that spot with a stranger I mean we're also assuming that they didn't offer and he didn't say no right. I am assuming that 'cause why would he say no raining. He didn't have. It was like he had a big. I'd turned down umbrella offers before when I'm walking somewhere not that I'm just sitting somewhere but like if I'm walking walking somewhere and like my wife will be like hey get under the umbrella like Just because there was like a height difference between us. And it's like I'm going to get more wet trying to get under the umbrella rela wobbly. I'm hoping that he turns down my invitation. But I'm elise offering hope turned it down. I'm just saying like I've turned down before. Yeah at that point you need to take the umbrella to hold it for her. No I stay wedge. She takes the day walking in the in the rain except the taller person holds the umbrella person. Rela as for the most part if you're traveling short distance or an inconvenience often if it's not like pouring you're going to get less wet just walking to your car. Then you will opening the umbrella sitting down closing the umbrella. Having umbrella splash all over you. Then what do I do with his umbrella about. But Yeah I get more wet rela. Yeah I'm swift the foot so I'll sometimes just jog quickly to the car Opened up the door slide in. Close the door. You know what I mean but if I take the umbrella thing I have to open and enclose and then I got one of those upside down umbrellas that closes out when you push a button but then the water stays inside the upside down umbrella and then you move it and pours all over. It's just a whole umbrellas rela a whole thing so yeah I guess. I'd share the umbrella with the person right. I feel like we saved it..
"samson" Discussed on The Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz
"Which means you're not under oath when you're under oath you have to unless you're the steroid guys who went before Congress who said they never did steroids? But of course did but in theory. When you're under oath you have to tell the truth so taubman will not be under oath? He'll be asked questions and if he's smart he won't say a word because you'll become completely unemployable by any of the other teams because Narcissus I just don't get hired if however he doesn't want to stay in the game or he thinks he will never get another job in the game then he's he has he should have no issue going going scorched-earth David. You mentioned steroids really quick and I wanted to bring to you a hypothetical that we had off air just to wonder what your perspective is. A team president would be so when a player test positive for steroids. There's an appeals process. Correct where they continue to play for a little bit. Yes okay so. I'm wondering if you were in the playoffs right you're in the world series and one of your players decides I'm GonNa Take Steroids and your entire team decides you know what we're all GonNa take steroids just for this playoff run we get caught will play through the playoff run. And we'll deal with the suspensions. After how would you feel as a president knowing you WANNA world series. But you'd lose your team for like half the next season well the reason that's a funny hypothetical as you can't take steroids on Monday and hit home runs on Tuesday so it doesn't quite work that way. You have to do a cycle quite earlier than October and by doing it earlier than October you'd be risking getting caught before the playoffs. Even start so you're talking about doing a drug that has this magical power that makes you better for that one month period of October and would I sacrifice at full season of losses in order to get a world series win this yes but I would do it from steroids Dan when I do it from a financial standpoint right where I would have as much as if I had the ability to have two hundred million dollars payroll over two years and if I split at one eighty the first first year and twenty two second year but I gotta run out of it what I do it. Yes so the next season lose one hundred fifty games. Would it be worth it. One Hundred Percent Bob Nightingale from USA Today tweeted that Scott Boras believes that the phillies earned enough money off the signing of Bryce Harper last year to pay for his contract for the next two and a half years. There's which is about sixty five million dollars because the phillies attendance increased last season by over a half a million fans which is up twenty six percent for them. What do you is that accurate? What do you make of those comments? I I appreciate that question He's so full of it and so wrong that it shows how stupid he is. He is literally financially incapable of understanding how to run a business. So here's the fact for every hundred thousand fans. The net to a team is anywhere between four and six million dollars net. What do I mean by that? That means you take the amount of revenue that you get from the tickets. Then you take away revenue sharing because you lose thirty three cents of every dollar you raise revenue for revenue sharing. That's the definition of revenue sharing. When I make a dollar I have to give thirty three percents away to the teams who make less revenue? Then there's taxes practice that have to be included and expenses that have to be included so the most that Bryce Harper. Let's pretend that every single fan Dan who came to the game came because of Bryce Harper so they increased by five hundred thousand people. Let's round up to six hundred thousand. More people came simply simply because of Bryce Harper then instead of four million per hundred thousand fans let's say the phillies are just incredible rights right and they get eight million eight million which per one hundred thousand fans net next that means that they have an extra fifty million dollars at most. GimMe a break. There's zero chance that everyone of those fans came and there's zero chance that every one of those fans were of the highest average ticket price fans those paying the most money for their tickets. He doesn't understand revenue-sharing he doesn't understand EBA ABADAKA which is earnings before interest taxes depreciation amortization he make statements that are asking for the sole purpose of in inflaming fans fans trying to pressure owners to overpay for his clients. So no you don't believe him. It's it's it's one of the funniest quotes in the heat. When he meets the media is quotes are so ridiculous but this one was offensive because he was trying to down smart in his other quotes not just sounds moronic and is but this one? He was trying to let his fans no or his players know that he has some sort of financial acumen. That of course he has zero Arro- of is there anyone on earth. You hate more than Scott bores. I don't hate that. That's a strong word. I don't hate him. I find him to be I find his uh-huh Mo modus operandi his way of doing business so deplorable. I find him so disingenuous. The whole situation with Jose is what drove me at the top and I can't forget it I won't forget it and how do you. I don't know how he looks in the mirror. So no I'm just GONNA eventually. I guess I don't think think we really got a true review from you on rounders. So your thoughts on this film starring Edward Norton and Matt Damon so editor. Edward Norton has a new movie coming out called Melissa Brooklyn and I wanted to bring out and Edward Norton Movie For you and it matched with the cheating Houston Astros scandal. This isn't movie about a gambler poker for players who loses his money and wants to win it back and get into the world series of poker and he's a law student Matt Damon and this is not a born movie. This is not an action. The movie this is a very sort of thoughtful movie about the lines. People Cross in order to take their shots and you know pre Hamilton. I I want my shot right. lin-manuel Miranda's this is what Matt Damon did. And the reason I loved the movie is that it it goes through the character development of a guy who is so down down and out and get some self back in by having to cross the line. Some people wouldn't cross and borrow money from people he wouldn't want to borrow money from. I'm and make money in a way that some people wouldn't WanNa make money and he ends up taking a chance against John Malkovich in one of the most underrated performances by John Malkovich of all times when he plays the owner of an underground poker room and Damon ends up going one on one and figures out how Malkovich keeps winning. And it's due to his oreos and the way he eats his Orios. That's the towel that Malkovich has. We can do. Spoilers movies that old. So the reason why canal conviction the orioles is so important. But that signifies is everybody has a weakness. And if you're smart enough and you're willing to hang around long enough to find it we're gonNA find minded and the people were successful. Pounce on that weakness perhaps rounders. An perhaps a weakness is the risk of losing their baseball team to San Antonio or Las Vegas. Well Done David Samson. We'll talk to you next week. Hey have a great week guys. Thank thank you prescription required online physician consultation and are only take the physician.

Two out of every three guys are going to start losing their hair by the age of thirty five thirty five. You're still a young dude at that point you're GonNa Start Losing your hair then think about it a year from now. It's all gone in. Everybody used to think as soon as you start losing your hair. That's it. It's genetics. It's father time and there's nothing you can do about it. We'll.
Chinese cryptomining giant Bitmain’s civil war breaks into open
"Last week and actually for this whole past week. There's been a fair bit of drama. At bitcoin. Mining giant. Bit mean what happened well. So long story sure it was a it was a coup so From October twenty seven to thirty years there was a video surveillance camera. Expo in engine and my colleague John He was the he's the CO founder will be man and he was was ad expo. It was their launch some kind of a chip from Yemen for video surveillance cameras and then one day after that Jihan on the after that there was a change of the business registration data of Of Beijing Technology. Okay so in that restriction change microbes no longer the executive director will be man. He's he was also so taken over by Jehan as a legal representative an hour that Japan will who is also the other co whole funder of demand so a couple of hours after that change Japan will send an email to all staff to be man. I'm employee's employees saying Michael giants basically dismissed off. All his roles have been men and any employees. You should not engage with anymore and it should not take any directions for him so basically shut him down and that was basically it an hour after the email. Hey Japan will submit Someone all this stuff to your own hands meeting meeting to tell everybody what happened. So that was what happened on last Tuesday and on today one week off to Dad Meiklejohn finally spoke on his. What we share way ball and said is going to take some legal action to return to the office Irene? So let's go a little bit into that stuff meeting. What was the backstory that Jihad gave to explain or justify his actions while so that was kind of like a shock to many employees? Because I guess not. Many people have seen a word like expecting that so he took that opportunity to explain to everybody what happened in why he had to come back. And why he they had to take such actions and he basically use the one hour meeting to explain what happened from December twenty eight eighteen when when when the kind of conflict has started between him and my crew John Yet that was that was pretty much all of the one hour meeting. And what was that conflict. So the backstory of the December twenty eight eighteen was that at that point. The Big Quin price was like a was a big big price crash and was thinking about layoff so Jihai in a couple of family. Members of the company was were like pushing for the plan to lay off employee's because at that time I think they may have about juicers people initially based on what John said in the meeting was micro. John was AH was against the plan so they had a big struggle on December. Seventeen Jihan says on that day Meikeljohn returned to the office called for a second meeting and on that meeting. He wanted to be the socio. So as of as of December last year Japan and micro were co CEOS in CO chairman of women so he said on that that day micro Office wanted to become the only CEO. He said that is the way to save the company so that that was what happened at that time. So there was a conflict of Should have a layoff but then they come to agreement that there should be lay off and they also come to agreement that they both will step down from cozy ethos and they will ask the second other person to on the new. CEO role and they will step down from the day to day management. So that was the conflict back then the as time moves on like bay. Men official announces announced that news in March of their stepping down to the public to Hong Kong. IPO failed But what John said was MICR didn't really stepped out from the management role. He's still kind of micromanaging the details and wanted to spend more efforts on AI. Stuff instead of the crypto mining equipment. So that kind of that kind of diversed I Big Business a little bit. So that kind of started the the conflict started to escalate one. Other thing is I think Jihan also said to the employees bit mean almost didn't survive that period and actually what he said is the only only reason it was able to pull through was at the price of Bitcoin had increased later. I'm assuming he's talking about kind of you know through the Spring and And even a bit. The summer we saw the price of acquaint increase but how has bitten means struggled this year in twenty nineteen still. I sing in twenty nineteen. I mean he said himself in the meeting. Based on the transcript. I got that The market share big demands mining equipment has declined. I mean I think they're still the number. One has the most dominant market share in terms of making mining mining machines but their market dominance has declined and the same time there Wi- will competitors like non. And what's minors Microbe eighteen silicon. They have been able to seize on the opportunity of the price of press jump since earlier this year. So I mean there. I think they are doing during fine. But in terms of market share the mining equipment business has decline and also the mining pool business is also Declining if you look at the hash rate. real-time Hasher Distribution Bution Pity comment pull used to dominate the top two ranks but this year it was taken by pulling and after Paul. Yeah and one other thing that is just so curious is that at least last year Macri was chairman and and he owned thirty six percent of bit main holdings while Jihad actually owned only twenty percent. So how jeon able to oust macree. If Macri was the larger chair holder and I mean it was pretty dramatic. The way he did it I think you know not allowing him back in the building after this trip and having his email access over to cut off it was like this was a huge surprise to macri. I guess we could say yeah. That's also one question I I haven't been able to figure out to be honest if you look at the IPO prospect the file till the Hong Kong Stock Exchange last year as September last year. They they were coached. CEO's co-chairman Mike crease. You're right micro has about six thirty. Six percent of Commit Holdings John has about twenty percent and go Shin on the two two your three other family members they have four to six percent respectively and another eighteen percent was hold was. Hello Oh by a trust for the employment stock option incentive that was the all the ordinary shares that counts for bowel like nearly ninety percent. I think and all the others like nearly ten percent were held by external uh shareholders. Now there were basically preferred. AM prefer b-shares Through the equity raising commended in two thousand seventeen twenty eighteen so technically I don't know how he managed to do it but that's just give you the breakdown of their equity structure based on the IPO. Filing they last year I don't know if they have changed it in any way but uh what John said in the in the in the in the meeting was he stepped Opposed as Costa Ios. He also stepped on he. He also let Microsoft take the chairman row so supposedly he was not a chairman and now he is a chairman. So I don't I don't technically the holiday did it was somehow did yeah. I saw dovey one tweeting that she she doesn't think a- and Samson Maui. I think tweeted the same thing that it doesn't appear that the shareholders were consulted the other shareholders. So yes so. Maybe we'll find this out leader
Voice in Canada - Amazon Voice Interoperability Initiative
"Amazon has started voice assistance on a single device to give you an example of some of the companies that have agreed to this initiative will of course Amazon for Lexi Microsoft for Cortana and there are a bunch of other ones as well and the idea behind this is that they want to make the devices compatible with multiple voice assistance so that a person is not necessarily limited to one voice assistant they may find that one voice system is better for certain uh-huh and another one is better for others and Amazon has actually taken the initiative to do so what's interesting is that the companies that are not part of this voice interoperability initiative are Google Assistant Apple Siri and Samson bixby the other big big ones why that is we're not sure but I think is still be very interesting to see how this develops over time for now I think it's a great idea it shows that Amazon is very thinking and they recognize that they're not the only voice assistant and well time will tell how this how this plays out very interesting news development so if you have multiple choices since you may be able to use multiple voices on a single device in the future all right take care talk to you that brief cast dot

"It's from seven ninety two ticket and Jay Wakefield brewery donlevatar where can we hurt their jeeter the most right in his wallet listened in? I'm obviously very fair. I'm telling you the way things are still God's all. All the all. I love this new character. Chris Cody as confused moral conscience in the back of the room. Why do you want to a hurt jeeter? He hurt me. I'm going to hurt him back. And I'm going to hurt him in the pocket book. This is our show with. Still guts on the ticket. We've got here. Some odds some prop bets say sportsbook is finally taking prop bets on the Oscars. We will ask David Sampson his opinion on some of those things in a moment. If you wanna talk baseball with David Samson movies, whatever etiquette seven eight six four five six four eight three seven is the telephone number. He's got he's got a movie to review with us. But I on the baseball front explained to me what's going on with Machado and Harper and collusion, that's not collusion. Well, it's not collusion. It's actually to player agents named Dan Lozano and Scott Boras, and they promised that they would get the most money for their player. So they cannot sign I so they're just if the game a chicken, and we all lose what did you do less night? Good. God is in your voice. So I actually have a speech to give today. And my voice is reflecting. The fact that I was breakfasting. I mean, you sound can you can we are Mike go ahead and get that laugh where it just it sounds like how someone who is a chronic smoker. Ends up sort of emphysema in their way to death. It sounds like Cody I mean worse than coating net. I would say it's actually has nothing to do with that..
"samson" Discussed on The Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz
"I think that that's a fair would say, and I'm and I'm close with them. And he by the way, one of my worst stories and baseball involves him one of the craziest stories of all time, which I'm happy to tell you, but I still speak to stand and text with them. And that's it tell us the Stanton's stand story is that he accused me of something pub in inside a clubhouse, and we had a fight. I've never been punched and I've got a mouth, and I've never been punched. And I thought that Stanton, and I we're going to actually have a physical altercation which would have been funny because he's three times my size. Well, what have been quick to it will it would've not only been it would have been very fast. Amy hitting the floor. You hitting your face with your own fist is how that wouldn't. It was brutal. He accused me of purposefully trying to put the entire team endanger by flying them on a plane that was not worthy of flight. Ever seen major league. They weren't planning was the was the plane that bad I said to him in a very loud voice in front of the rest of the team that I'm on that plane to and I value my life way, more than value yours. So the minute I stop fine on the plane who can start complaining right now. Shut up put your uniform on and try to win a damn game. Wait a second. David did did Sherman pay one point two billion dollars to be friends with Derek Jeter? Not just to be friends, but to have the ability to have it to get his cell number. I think that's what it was one to ten David Samson. Former Marlins team president with says spent the whole hour with us. What is your relationship now with Loria? You know, we don't talk all that much. He's you know, he used to be my stepfather, but he's not any longer only in that. He he's not married to my mother anymore. But we used we spoke every day for eighteen years multiple times a day. And obviously he's now moved on. And I've moved on. I just I sit home alone in a house all day doing nothing in my underwear. And he does you know, he buys Artan does stuff. So we talk so he buys her. That's what he's doing. Now. Where does he live is he para somewhere travels has got places in various places, he's got places that have places, and he's got people who have places and he's got one boy two billion dollars. What's the angriest? You saw Laurie over something Marlins related. Oh, God when I can tell you the year we won the World Series. When he demanded that we release Kevin Ohlson. He was so angry about Kevin Olson, then I remember thinking to myself who could be that angry about a guy who is so bad. Right. I mean, you should be angry about he was tasers in his front yard. No, not Scott Olsen. You're thinking. Scott Olsen talking. Isn't that a fine? Where's the sound effect for our? So that's it. It's just me saying too. That's even better production value. That's we don't even need a sound for that. It's. Evan Olson what was so angry about 'cause we had a pitch him. And he said he won't doesn't want team with Kevin Ohlson on it. Now is in two thousand three it was bad hit a twelve seven five yard in two thousand three and. Why were you pitching him because you were not available? You made that huge splash in the winter meetings. And I think a lot of the players sort of knew what they were getting into new that if things didn't go right immediately. They might be shipped off. But they were happy to get the contracts. But it seemed as Mark Burleigh was kind of upset at the deal. Was there anybody that ever got legitimately mad at you for trading them. Even though you gave them the contract that they should have known. What the deal was. Let's talk about Mark Burleigh because he's a guy who I was close to and I was very close to his wife, and and I was very honest with them. And I'm the one who called him to tell him. He was traded. And I told him that he was being traded to Toronto, which is the equivalent of baseball hell for tax reasons for passport reasons for just all sorts of now that Montreal doesn't exist because you ruined it..

"Nicotine is an addictive chemical donlevatar where can we hurt their jeeter the most right in his wallet. Listen, Dan, I'm obviously very fair. I'm telling you the way things are still God's all all the on. I love this new character, Chris Cody as confused moral conscience in the back of the room. Why do you want to hurt jeeter? He hurt me. I'm going to hurt him back and I'm going to hurt him in the pocket book. These these are show with stugatz on the ticket. I'm going to hurt him in the pocket book. That is Billy Gill. He is a young person that was said that was actually uttered by a young person. It's a bit emotional at the time. I think that's what happened. So David Samson is with us STAN Van Gundy. I think our goal for the show needs to be the send a STAN Van Gundy the lyrics to despot bussey though and see how many of them he is willing to sing for us at some point, I think getting STAN Van Gundy sing a song in Spanish is the proper use of STAN Van Gundy in this medium. So let's go ahead and put that to him now and see how much of that tax. Stands at? Oh, man. What do you think you're going to get a scam? Why is he in the radio after. Drive forty five minutes because he can't get the machine in his house to work. Yes, you have to send STAN. You do not tax him. You cannot ask them to open a machine. To anything, just send him a fax, some to a number near him. And so. We'll bring him the lyrics despot see, we'll get back to STAN Van Gundy in a second, STAN. If you want to get in on this debt, David, Samson conversation feel free. I know how much you love baseball. If not, Samson, Samson is with us now on seven ninety the ticket. What what? What is the movie? What is the movie that you're reviewing for us today? Samson, I'm reviewing and movie called eighth grade written and directed by Bo Burnham with Josh Hamilton, the dad, and how see Fisher as as the daughter is eight. The truest movie about middle school angst that I've ever seen. It was uncomfortable. It was upsetting. It was real it you, you think to yourself? What was it like when you were in middle school, then you think yourself thank God. You're not middle school, and then you think to yourself thank God. I don't have kids who are middle school all the while, realizing that it's not a Hollywood movie, and I encourage every parent and kid to see. It so you can say to yourself, you know what? I'm not that different and I wasn't that bad at being a parent or a child. Where were your connection points? Where were your personal connection point? The desire to fit in in different areas? Knowing that I was putting a square peg into a round hole, the feeling that I was being judged constantly and wanting to not let anyone misjudge me or mischaracterize me. And then as a parents. I mean, it's just disaster from eighty z. When your parenting a middle schooler, you just don't know what to say. You don't say the right thing and Josh Hamilton acted perfectly where he was the father of single father of of this daughter, and you just never knew what to say. And it was always misinterpreted and there's a lot of door slamming and a lot of electronic using and that's what real life is now stand. You're very close to your daughter, you you, you're very close to your family. Like, do you do. Relate to what he's talking to the angst of young kids with their parents. Yeah, I do and I saw it with my daughter who's now twenty one, and I agree with him. I mean, you sit and watch it and you went through it with your own kids and you went through it when you were in middle school? I, I agree with David. I thought it was really a good movie, but one that will make you a little uncomfortable. I'm wondering if the two of you have disa- disagreement as it relates to the analysis of Clayton Kershaw as people who love baseball, it is a bit confusing that this man who represents one of the strongest pitchers of our lifetime would be this much worse in the postseason Sampson..

"Theology is what is so much the same way that when Joseph had his dream in the new fifty two, they write con. That there's in in the long list of things that are kosher in that are not coaching. There's one kind of animal that is not kosher, and when they were translating it into English, they're like, we don't know what this thing is. It's called a rabbit to say rabbits. I wish I remember the name of that animal in anyway. We've gotten a minute into this movie. So let's so Samson kale of they're stealing this corn that may not be historically accurate. Otherwise, the movie is very historically accurate all the time. I mean, it's about a super strong hero, so we know it's accurate, but Samson Kayla, they lead the Philistines on a merry chase through kind of ancient village set. They don't look like brothers, right? They're not supposed to look like they're twin brothers, right? I mean, they're not twins, but they look neither. I mean, they're, they look more like twins than Danny devito Arnold Schwarzenegger. In the movie of the same name, Elliott. You use that argument too often. I think it's unfair. Not only do they not look like brothers in that one of them is blonde, fair skinned and very wispy. And the other one is looks essentially Samoan. Sure, but they don't even look neither in the looks Jewish and I don't like. Yup, it will guys who went to the same wig shop. That's that's what they look like. They didn't even get the same color wig. It bothered me so much that the no one in this movie looks particularly semitic and they don't have to look like Woody Allen like we don't need to be like Mike Jewish. They don't even have that would be hilarious offense. Everybody's got out quarterly blazer with the patches of the elbow foot. Imagine they don't have to be college professors. Imagine how much more of a miracle it is. If Samson is super strong, but he's like a little nerdy guy like that's a miracle, a huge guy with muscles beating up a bunch of American scene. I hope that my God given strength close out, I don't know how many more people I can massacre with this jawbone. That's my character. Woody Samson. Anyway, it's a, it's a problematic impression to do these days. I'm just saying they could've gotten guys who looked more like they were. If feels like, man, you're already gonna steal the Samson stories from us, and then you're gonna cast other guy in this way. Anyway, that's fun. There they go to this village. They're running around Samson's a real flirty, charismatic rogue type. He's quick with a joke quick with a punch AMI's all he's like his face is like all eyebrows leg brow ridge in dimples. Like he's always smiling, this weird smile. Now he looks like a caveman. Like, let's let's not mince words here. I was trying to be nice. Looked great. Looks like it was carved out of granite which could be taken either way, but Danes that you are accusing him of looking like a throwback, primitive human, I would say, looks like a caveman. If you consider his dimples to be too beautiful caves. All right. If he looked like a caveman, that would be better because you know it when people a lot of people lived back then in Taves because this is ancient times he entered into really show you that he's, he's not just, you know, he's not just punches, but he's also a charmer every time they cut to him. He's in the middle of laughing at something that you didn't hear. And like it's like somewhat. He had never laughed before, but so it'd played him a tape of somebody math. I got this this once or twice Nigon. Once in a while, you'll hear the end of what the brother was saying. There's one the brothers like, you know, you wish that was true brother, a huff like you, like, what were they talking? He's also eye for the ladies and you know this because every time anything that could be a woman is on screen, he just looks at it. There's a scene later on. He's watching to women get water from well leering at them and they are so totally covered up..
