"Because, you know, hey, with this podcast, sometimes we jump ahead, then we come back. Billy Madison. Yes. There it is. Look at that, ladies and gentlemen. Billy Madison. Billy Madison. Not just for the record, dumb and dumber. No, but it was because I don't see how it was. I was way off. Samsonite. Oh, that's why you said it. Correct. Okay. Our pets. Heads are falling off now. You sold a dead bear to a blind kid. Anyway, it's two pair of gloves, the whole time. What if they shot you in the head? Anyway, so I just wanted to single. So the finishing room. Is there your background? All right, see you with the army, but now you're living in Florida. Yeah. Where are you at? I'm in Jacksonville. And you're a second responder there. Firefighter, sorry. It's hard. I'm sorry. It's like freaking firefighter, dude. I'm a hobbyist. Which I didn't know until like, what? 6 months ago? Yeah, sure. Hobbyist. Hobbyist. Yeah. You like naps and you get paid to nap. I do it for fun. All right, so for all of those out there that are listening that don't understand, there's a nice rivalry between career firefighters and volunteer fighter fighters. So we'll just get this out of there. Okay. Yes, I'm a volunteer firefighter. I have been since 2003. When you enlisted. When I was in the army. When I was a wee one. 2003. That's actually what I wanted to be. Which is funny. Because you wanted to be a cop. I wanted to be a firefighter. What? I'm a cop, and you're a firefighter. Yeah. So I volunteer. I love it. But we all know there's a lot of, and the fire service has is just inundated with pride. Unfortunately, I guess, is the word to say, there are a lot of volunteer firemen and there's, look, there's a lot of great volunteer firemen. The company I'm with, holy crap, they are some amazing firemen. I've seen them do things like holy crap. The guys that go with, they run circles around some other firemen. But we know throughout the U.S., there's some companies that don't take the fire service seriously and look, I mean, going into a fire is nothing to shy away from, you know, it's extremely dangerous and you need to prepare for it. I mean, we'll talk about what you do to make sure you go home at the end of the shift. And some guys and girls, you know, they think of it as like the pancake club. And they don't take it seriously. And so there is this rivalry and there are jokes about volunteer firefighters. I don't flaunt it because it's not who I am. I am a firefighter, but I'm me. I'm proud of what I do. I'm proud that I've volunteered, but you know, I love when I meet someone and I'm like, oh, what do you do? And the younger, you know, 1819, I'm a firefighter, where I'm a fireman. That's what they say, I'm a fireman. Oh yeah, where do you work? I got volunteer. I'm like, wait, what do you do for work? Oh,.

"Up. Like no one's going to do that. Actually, I have the I have our local Mexican food place. Same here. For a restaurant. Smart devices. Yeah, that's different than what I'm saying though. What I'm saying is if there's a new place that moved in downtown, I'm not going to add them to my contacts just to call them. But if it's a place you love, absolutely. I've done that too, yes. Gotcha. But I don't understand. Yeah. Right. I got this offer in the mail, Google one users in four countries. Now have the offer to get a free second gen nest hub if you upgrade to their two terabyte annual plan. So that's the 99 well it's a $100 a year for that plan. So you would save 17% compared to paying 9 compared to paying $10 every month. And that would ultimately make the nest hub free if you did that. So. Oh, and this is part of Google's let us give you stuff to sign up for our revenue services. Totally. Totally. Let's end also let's us have the stuff that we give you, be conduits in your home to more of our stuff. Here's the desktop, and now suddenly there's lock in. Eventually, they're going to launch a subscription for sleep and wellness from that thing. Because that's the nest hub that does the solely sensory. Oh, that's right. That's right. Yeah, I've got the 200 gig plan of Google one. So it's like three bucks a month. So this would be a step up. I don't know that I necessarily need two terabytes of Google Cloud Storage. It does if he's shooting those raw images. I have two terabytes. You do. So I wonder if this only for upgrades? Must be only for upgrading upgrades. Yeah, I don't know why they do it otherwise. And then finally, jacquard, if you remember the card from years ago, Google IO, it was the technology that was embedded into the fabric showed off on Levi's jackets and stuff and apparently the jacquard SDK is going to be released by Google so that devs can make their own smart fabric apps. You can buy the Levi's jacquard jacket. You could also buy a backpack from is it Marc Jacobs? Someone? Samson. Absolutely. It has saint Lauren and Samson samsonite both have backpacks. Okay, I was like, someone fancy, sail home. And. Samsonite. Yeah. Yeah, so those are the trucker jackets. They're real. Oh, yeah.

"This is Bloomberg Business Week With Cara Measure from Bloomberg Radio. The hospitality industry on just about all of the companies associated with it, have witnessed and are still living through a shut down like they've never seen before. And any company associated with travel well, they felt the downturn equally like luggage maker Samsonite, who, as many other companies did during the pandemic, had to first cope with the unprecedented more on that from Lynn Berard's president at Samsonite, North America, as it has been for everyone. It has certainly been a unexpected and quite busy challenging years since March, 1 here that has been an industry for 27 years and Really has not experienced anything like it. But we immediately upon the pandemic hitting in March. We had started to hear some sense of that from our team in China, So we got a little bit of a head start from our colleagues about what was happening in China, so we did immediately have to pivot. And at the very start of pandemic. We really focused on our people just to make sure that everyone was safe and certainly thankful that our employees are healthy and well. But we did have to make some strategic shifts within the business. Certainly, number one priority was to really we look at our structure, knowing that there was a slowdown and ultimately pretty much a virtual stopped to travel, a zoo global company, We are extremely fortunate have our CEO Kyle Jen dro, who was previously our former global CFO for many years. Leading us through so him along with our current CFO resin. Taleqani really worked hard to ensure that we secured the financial liquidity to weather the storms and then written originally It was really up to us to manage the regions and very fortunate to have a very strong leadership team, But we did have to make sure that we looked at our cost structure and reevaluate the business to set us up. For a very strong and stable future, and I'm very glad to report that we are all extremely confident and that we have set ourselves up in a strong position to get us to the other side. At the same time we were doing that. We certainly don't want to lose sight of our consumers and recognizing that they had shifted more to an at home environment and more traveling. We still wanted to be along the journey with them, so we found ways to communicate them with them digitally. In more unexpected ways, showing them how to exercise with luggage products. We made some Can I just say that is just I could only imagine the virtual planning meeting land where it's like. All right, guys, listen, nobody's traveling. That's our business. So what do we do? But how clever that someone's like Hey, like and it's a great idea. I mean, I think all of us who? Those who couldn't maybe afford to buy a pellet on or something else. We're like her and I'm looking around home. What can I use at home to work out? Absolutely. And there was a shortage in buying some weight, so love those suitcases and start lifting right. So we did find creative ways to pivot around there. And then, after that transformed, we actually did start to see as we approach the summer months since the fall that there was a shift some or smaller, localized movement around and we are fortunate to have a broad portfolio of products. So are Gregory packs. You know, the mountain Hiking is buying into those packs so That business was not as Tough as the travel suitcases happened today, Andrea Lee began to focus on ways that we could help consumers, even bags and backpacks. We also own speck and we saw an increase in tablet cases. As consumers were shifting to working from home and saw a big spike in those we really just shifted into providing consumers and marketing to our consumers with products that they would need in the new environment. How easy that was it to shift in terms of either marketing. I mean, I've talked to. Ah, fair amount of CMO is at some well known brands, too, and they just were like, you know, all of a sudden it was, like, all right, this advertising campaign just doesn't work anymore, and we have to quickly shift and things that would normally take months. That's exactly 100 Cent Correct. I think everybody had to adapt on a dime and we all rotated quickly, and we were monitoring sales on its daily basis. One of the fortunate benefits of commerce and digital as well as you can see by minute what you're selling, so we were able to pivot very quickly. We have a very versatile team. Throughout the region, and we were able to really leverage all of those insights that we had to make sure that we were capitalizing where we can help consumers and travelers out there. So Lynn, are there any consumer trends because we've talked to the CEO, Whirlpool and some others? On guys talking to another one on the phone and just saying how some of the consumer trends that we're seeing this year, especially consumer patterns that stay with you for 789 months, they don't go away quickly or may not at all are their consumer trends that you're seeing that you think? Might impact how you guys I don't know your composition of your product line or how you sell. Is there anything that might have a longer term impact in terms of strategy? Yeah, absolutely simply. It has historically been known for a suitcase travel provider. But we have over the years developed a strong assortment of bags and accessories, and we have seen slipping uptick in those products during this downturn and just really accelerated the lift in sales. And that will follow us for some time and simultaneously When travel does come back, we'll start to see the lift of the travel two cases coming back. Yeah, That's something we're all trying to focus on when lockdowns and in our world moves back to being normal. That's Lynn Brard president at Samsonite, North America, still ahead, as many companies like Samsonite struggled and then learned to pivot during the pandemic. It was full steam ahead when it came to IPO's in specs this year. I'm excited to see the market come back. And hopefully we'll get others and I note 2021 is lining up to be strong as well Protected with someone who took next Pandora and Salesforce all.

What happens after you expose a Neo-Nazi recruiter?

"Brian Thorp is the Winnipeg free press reporter who outed Matthews. Who broke this story and who has continued to followed? Hello rife first of all you are in the documents in court. Tell me about that that definitely Caught me off guard a little bit After news broke the Patrick Matthews had been arrested in the united. I states all of these court documents sort of being released to the public quite detailed document and so it was going through them piece together. These stories when I was still you know back cure and Winnipeg and reading this affidavit from an undercover FBI agent that was used to secure a number of the rest for and and all of a sudden. It's quite clear they're talking talking about me and that Patrick Matthews while he was down in Georgia and was hanging out with other members of the base Plotting various various things he got onto the subject to me at least according to this UNDERCOVER FBI agent Claiming that you know I was essentially just an anti fascist activists not journalists. And what I'd done should carry the death penalty. What was your first thought? When you read that it was pretty unnerving Having said that it was was I guess somewhat expected there's been blow back from my reporting on this story. Certainly some threats come my way and obviously I was pretty sure sure that Mr Matthews wasn't pleased with me and what I write and so maybe now I'll get you to kind of follow up on all the reporting hoarding. You've done here. The last time we talked to. You was right after you had outed Patrick Matthews as a white supremacist recruiting for domestic terror organization. Essentially and then he vanished gnashed from Canada. What do we know about what happened right? After you outed him. Thinks these Court documents that have been coming out. we've really filled the gaps in terms of what Matthews is up to who he was with and And how he moved around in the aftermath of him Disappearance so if the I who says the two members of the base Drove more than six hundred miles from Maryland into Michigan to pick up Patrick Matthews after he illegally crossed into the United States after the Winnipeg free press exposed to at that point. They're moving around a lot At times at one point there is there holed. Hold up in a hotel in Maryland. Another point they're living in an apartment in Delaware at another period of time there down in Georgia at one of these paramilitary military training events called hate camps. So the certainly quite busy while Matthews and one of his co-accused Brian Lumley junior are living at this apartment and a and Newark Delaware. They're alleged to purchased A number of firearm parts and you have a constructed manufacturer to fully automatic assault rifle. They're also electric stock more than one thousand six hundred fifty rounds of ammunition to got their hands on some body armor and according to the FBI you know tracking these people with really some of the most sophisticated counterterrorism techniques at their disposal. They were plotting and number thing. One Point Matthews was involved attaching. A murder applaud down in Georgia To be perpetrated against it a married couple that they'd identified as Anti Fascist activist and also while in Delaware Matthews News and his co accused. Mister Finley Are alleged to have repeatedly discussed various violent attacks that they could carry out at the pro. Gun Rally in Richmond. Virginia that was held on the twentieth. How did the FBI and up infiltrating the skiing so they deployed a number number of different strategies They were accessing cellular location data recording telephone conversations you know tapping into encrypted chat rooms rooms. They were times trailing as the suspects in-person they did Searches of various properties. While no one was present then installed audio and video surveillance and down in Georgia. At least we also know that At least one undercover FBI agent directly infiltrated fool traded the organization. So he was there while they were plotting things around the Virginia rally earlier than that. What kinds of stuff did did he see the in person so the undercover FBI agent was privy And witness to plot for the murder plot in in Georgia. So what the if your agent learned with that Patrick Matthews and another Liked remember the base who was arrested in separate incident identified at this anti-fascist couple and begun making plans to Samsonite them. Essentially but the FBI agent says that within a month after Matthews goes back to Delaware is Co conspirator begins this hour on them and says that he thinks matthews is incompetent and carry out the crime with him though collectively all get arrested so they decided to exclude them from the plan but That then posed a problem because the carried out the crime without him he was aware way or of it and would be able to tie into it so a member of the base down in Georgia then comes to the conclusion. That what we're going to have to do is if we're GONNA have to murder mass us and then we can go on to carry out this double murder against this activist couple So in this bizarre twist Matthews now finds himself across tare of this murder plot that he helped patch. How close do we know that they got to carrying out any of these things? I mean we know that they were arrested before the rally were a lot of this stuff was planned all the things that they discuss. It doesn't seem like any of them. Were that close to coming to fruition. Well in terms of the Virginia junior rally I mean they did a mass. You know not only a fully automatic assault rifle but also a sniper rifle They had gone A bunch of different materials that they plan to use they had base prepare You know nine your body armor all of these things and then they were discussing. You know various obvious different attacks that they could do at one point matthews is talking about you know quote literally hunting people. Mr Lumley had thrown up the possibility of you know we need to find. Signed a police officer WHO's isolated. We can south and ate them. They'd also discussed the possibility of opening up fire on this crowd from multiple angles No clearly the FBI was concerned enough about this situation. Felt they're ramping up Does something enough that they moved in a few days. Prior to the scheduled rally the they play these people under arrest in terms of the the plot coming out of Georgia that one was planned very meticulously in a very indepth way over the course missive several months so it seemed At least according to these court documents that they were indeed gearing up to perpetrate this double murder to do we have any idea From the documents or even just from anything the FBI has put together how connected this cell was to the wider network of the base. And how tied together this organization actually so. It's definitely a decentralized organization previously tries to create you know these information nations silos but According to the documents There was a number of gathering to gatherings in Georgia and another one planned in a different state that didn't end taking place Over the course of Matthew's time As he was illegally in the US At the one in Georgia I believe there's about twelve members members that arrive there so this would be you know it's several cells. It'd be converging in one location in order to train together and to build Camaraderie And in addition to this there also communicating in these encrypted chat rooms in order to establish connections amongst themselves so well it needs to be understood a decentralized organization and each individual cell has a fair amount of autonomy in terms of you know what they're going to carry out It's definitely certainly a a loose connection and certainly as we saw with Matthew. It's a network that has the ability to ferry You know someone who's subject the multiple national security investigations in Canada helped him escape to the US and then Successfully move him around about four different. US States and provide homeless safe harbor. Do we have any idea. What Matthew standing is there was in the organization as a whole You know when you met him I I guess he was. He was a recruiter but How was he regarded by the base in the United States? In general well there's some indication that At least sections of the membership looked up to him due to his military background and that he perhaps would have been trying to pass on. Some of his skills You know to other members of the network But it but it also seems like after his time of Georgia at least with the one. You know Munc- calm right down there who's WHO's Individual by the name of Mr Lane He certainly soured on him. And eventually you know as I mentioned came to the conclusion that Matthews was incompetent. You know what his current standing might be in the eyes of his fellow You know knew the base Kind of remains unclear at this point. Only tell me about when the FBI finally decided to move and arrest these guys they were taken into custody January sixteenth Matthews and Linley. My understanding is we're at their Delaware apartment the FBI begins to move in on them and as they realized that. They're about about to be busted matthews in Lear accused of smashing their cell phone then dumping them in the toilet and attempt to Destroy some evidence little little. Do they know this was being captured on. FBI Surveillance Video. One of the more disturbing things was that the FBI was able to get access to mount these personal computer and on their he had recorded a number of propaganda videos where he was effectively urging other neo Nazis to engage violent attacks in order to spark what he called older revolution for the white race in one of these videos. Matthews is wearing a gas mask. So it's a very striking image and And he's doing doing this. In order to try and conceal his identity and one of the the direct quotes that he says is something along the lines of derail some F. trains murder for some people poisoning water supplies. You better be ready to do this if you want the white race to survive. You're going to have to do your part. Jeez Jeez yeah it was. It was pretty unnerving stuff but having said that You know it fits with what we know from the about the base from my reporting and from the reporting from a couple of other You know journalist that that focus on this file which is that. This is an organization. That

Away CEO Steps Down After Investigation Reveals Toxic Work Culture

"Away the luggage startup founded by Steph Korean. Rian Jen Rubio has made a fortune by branding itself as a travel business. Not as what. It actually is a company that sells suitcases. More than half a million people mostly millennials selenium follower ways instagram feed the feed is filled with aspirational images of magical destinations cute dogs and babies and peaceful living spaces a recent Jason Hashtag advised followers to quote. Live like it's the weekend but for the company's employees life was anything but in fact there were often no weekends off for for months at a time the reality of working for away was so different than it's aspirational image. That co-founders Steph. Corey is now out as CEO. Corey left the executive post just four days. After the verge published a scathing article about a ways toxic work culture numerous former employees told reporters zoe schiffer for that. They were pressured to work. Almost endlessly typically without any overtime pay they also related many in-person slack conversations with Corey in which she berated and managers publicly for mistakes. Such as a single customer receiving a product with an incomplete monogram. Some employees also complained of discrimination against women and people of color color particularly within. Managerial ranks the verges schiffer. Backed up her reporting with several screen shots of slack messages written by Corey after the story was published Corey. Apologized jogged publicly on twitter. She wrote that. She was quote appalled and embarrassed by reading her own slack messages. She said she'd been working with an executive coach and promised to do better. That tweet led observers to believe that she wasn't planning to step down shortly thereafter. The company announced that a new interim CEO would take her place that new CEO is Stuart Hazelden who has been. CEO of Lululemon Athletico. He will start in mid January away. Disputes that had hired Hazelden because house of the verge investigation rather the company says away has been in discussions with him for months.

Known for sleek pricey baggage and long warranties. Toomey pulled Samsonite into the twenty first century, and the brand is now leading Samsonite southeast sales growth, but not everyone can cough up more than five hundred bucks for a suitcase. And that's where an upstart brand called away comes in founded by two former Worby Parker employees for years ago. Away is already approaching revenues of one hundred fifty million dollars the direct to consumer company goes head to head with Toomey producing fun, colorful, sturdy luggage. But at about half the price and with built in phone chargers. What's really different about both to me and away though is not the luggage itself. But the way it's being marketed as a fashion statement, not just as the functional item. It is both companies are jumping on the street where trend of collaborating with celebrities to make limited edition product lines to me hooked up with NBA star. Russell Westbrook and away offers ever changing partnerships with celebrities like actress Rashida Jones and model Carly clause. Both companies go to town on Instagram and travelers respond, and there's one more reason why suitcases are so hot right now. Millions more of us are traveling four billion people flew in two thousand seventeen that's up. Two hundred eighty million from two thousand sixteen crowded airports might not be fun.
