AI and the Evolution and Automation of Live Chat - with LivePerson CEO Robert LoCascio

"So rob. I want to dive in to the future of a and chat in the enterprise and the little bit of your journey there. But before i even do even ryan this company for quite some time when you guys started online chat in the ninety s companies public firm for twenty years. Here when you look to your business something. Like i don't know how many seventy or eighty million conversations you're handling in any given month when you look down at your business tried to find where. Ai could layer value for your clients. How did you think through that process. Because it seems like that's almost an endless There's almost an endless number of answers. They're basically looking at the data center. We do about seventy eighty million conversation month. I kinda you know that data we could take and look at how are use cases around banking and telco and and and retail and healthcare. These are big customer bases. Come from these verticals. How can we automate those conversations and so we basically just dove into the data we aggregated. The data looked at across customer. And we could see that there were patterns that made really good conversations. So that drove is to say okay. Let's build a host of tools and a new platform called conversational cloud in which we could enable large enterprises market customers to scale their conversation. Automate them and with the onset of covid the there was a massive massive impact contact centers the contact center agents help and nope he was there. They couldn't take calls so so they went home now. They're taking calls there and so there's been a massive drive to automation now because having someone work at home and answer calls just not the way to go. How do you automate that through a digital experience. That's really what's happened and obviously with the onset of covid firms like yourself or now in this position to potentially catch the opportunity to major way when you look at serve. What's potentially automated man even there so much to get into. I mean there's for each individual business that you work with you know maybe a work in with a one. Eight hundred flowers may be. You're working with us. The citibank guys work with some of the biggest companies in america here. The use cases are relatively bespoke And i know you. You worked on building a tool. That's at least understandable for nontechnical people. We definitely need subject matter. Experts to layer context and to structure or flow flows for these conversational systems. But you determine what the bounding box would be because even that feels feels endless and you need to kind of focus in somewhere yes we. We're all this under the header of commerce. And i fundamentally believe that conversation. Commerce is going to be the next leg of digital so we had ecommerce and now we're shifting see commerce and e commerce is is a very interesting thing when you think about like show up at a website and basically every website looks the same right. I mean top nab. Yeah data and google set those rules instead of you don't do that. We won't index you and that's why everything looks the same so what you're seeing is digital each brand doesn't have its own personality now with conversational commerce. You develop your own personality and you develop your own way to engage your consumers too like chapultepec. We had obviously during covid. What happened was people didn't want to go in and get a burrito and make They don't want to sit there for five minutes. Make freedom so chapultepec turn to us said we want to build an automation that somebody could come into their mobile device to any messenger front facebook. I message app and we want to configure a burrito and or whatever they want and they built. We built this Automation called pepper. It's called pepper and you can communicate with pepper. And then you show up at the door and the handed to you. And so that's the poultry. One we've got David's bridal which also people didn't want to come and people get married but do you want to go and sit in the store and try and addressing the one of the largest bridal companies in the world. We automated looking at different things for your body type for your style making an appointment. So you're the only one that's in that store. Don't have a crowd in the store. We built all that. This is just examples during kovin but every one of our customers get the ability to create a conversational experience. That's unique to them. And that's what makes commerce Yeah i i could certainly see the argument that linear text back and forth actually has potentially less less opportunity for really robust customization than you know. Really fancy dancy website. But but i get where you're where you're coming from. I think that there is like a. There's a certain flavor of the brand that you get from talking that maybe you wouldn't get from from a website and obviously what you're saying is that we can tailor that of course with a website. There's a lot we can do with color and features and video and whatever but certainly there's personalization on the conversation side. I could kind of see arguments on both sides there with respect to working with these big brands again. You're you're dropping some pretty pretty big names here. Names of almost everybody listening in has heard of what does it look like to set up these unique systems for them because obviously chipotle's use case which by the way feels very accessible. The number of burritos you can build is not unlimited right as opposed you guys work with delta airlines. The number of things i can complain about to my airline is. There's probably two dozen. You could tackle off the cuff. But but there's gotta be another four hundred that are just we're handing this to a human being but cipolla feels. Wow that feels like almost like dominoes. Chat bot was pretty popular. Winning hundred flowers was doing some stuff. Because there's only so many purchase options but when you go into different clients you got big airlines. You got these restaurant chains. What's that process of really working with them. Because there's got to be a bespoke build out part. You got your core platform you guys are able to use. You have a tremendous amount of data and a lot of staff obviously which it looked like to hop into these big brands and build out. Something that really drives value for our platform conversational cloud. We really broken into three areas in and around the three areas of need when you're looking at scale automation. One is the intent. We called intent manager in its technology that ingests all the conversations and then organizes the intense. So we talk about intense anti-business. What is it consumers. They haven't intention to do something with you. They want to buy something. They wanna customer care question answered and that's an intention and we call that technology intent so we organized the intense and it turns out as we all know. We all asking and attentively. So i may ask a bill differently than you do. But the technologists differences aggregate them. And then what you get to see a list of all the intense in your business. And what are the contents and where the mid level. I'm usually what we say. Let's go solve the top intense bam one and is thirty percent of all the voice calls. You're having

What Went Wrong With Cyberpunk 2077?

"Sarah twenty. Seventy seven was twenty. Twenty s hottest. Game in shaping up to be a good enough launch when reviews for the pc version began trickling out a few days before december. Twelve release date but once players got their hands on syrup. Twenty seventy seven especially the. Ps four and xbox one versions excitement turned into frustration as players encountered bugs glitches in more in a report from bloomberg's jason schreier developers. That city project red knew the game was not ready for launch in two thousand twenty according developer quote. They expected the game to you. Ready in twenty twenty. Two based on the progress team was making back in two thousand nineteen beyond just bugs and glitches. Sarah sarah overall performance in playability on consoles like the base. Ps four and xbox one reviled. I gave the concert versions of cyberpunk twenty seventy seven specifically a four in its review. One hurdle was that the developers tried to develop the engine and game simultaneously decision. One developer cyberpunk says was like quote trying to drive a train while the tracks are being laid in front of you at the same time. According to bloomberg. Sarah punk twenty-seven versions not the version have been hammered by players for for glitches and bugs. Some bugs which are game raking and ended up crashing the entire game or sometimes the system is being played on and we'll put a pause there because also acknowledge the pc version does have its fisher. Bugs also but the conservation is definitely have way more issues in the pc version back to the article developers seemingly pushed through challenges by believing they could overcome these obstacles themselves. Similar to the infamous. By where magic but sarah punk twenty seventy seven was developed through periods of intense crunch and a follow up to follow a tweet shire claims that despite promises from management that crunch would not be required. Some managers guilty employees into working more hours by saying other employees will work longer to pick up the slack. Salaries were also reportedly low with one junior programmer. Making around seven hundred dollars a month as for why early previews of cyberpunk twenty seventy seven demo to the public at events like e. three twenty nineteen look better than the final product. That's because the demo was entirely fake. According to the report neither code nor the gameplay was finalized when the demo was made in months spent working on a fake demo took away from developing the full game schrafft's report also references things like cultural challenges caused by language barriers There's this whole double dip release strategy that the studio wanted to go for where The game officers meant to come out in spring The reason why one reason why they wanted to come out. Spring was so that they could release on current. I guess now last gen consoles and then released again on next gen consoles and have that double dip having both those console versions out obviously game got delayed and so that didn't happen happen. The exact way they wanted to even though we still have next inversions coming scheduled later this year and then another thing that stri- report references and the fact that the game was announced in two thousand twelve but apparently full development didn't start until late two thousand sixteen. Tim where do you stand with all this. I mean look at this point. where do i stand with. Like one of the most complicated. Just like there's so many different facets that go into this right like at the end of the day. I stand against the project red and how this all went down like we. How many times do we need to say like this game should not have been released the way that it was just period outing times. Do we need to say that. Like crunch is bad and we need to fix all this stuff. All this is to me. Is we being now in. Twenty twenty one firmly in twenty twenty one developers. Publishers media outlets. Everybody they need to open their eyes to start paying a little bit more attention. Because if you make these mistakes constantly you do not change. You do not fix. Despite the countless flags that have went up for the last decade specifically the last couple of years. Jason is gonna get you. Jason tries to get in there and exposed the living. Fuck out of you and your the entire team and that it hits a point where there is no recovering from that. So it's like that fear alone should probably motivate you to make some changes on top of the you know human decency side of the whole thing right but this is inevitable. Of course shire was going to get in there and of course he was going to talk to people and of course that's going to crap narrative that is extremely not favorable to cd project red. For good reason. They made a lot of very very very poor choices. Yeah now reading this report like a lot of it is not surprising just given the context of how everything's gone down right like seeing the the game delayed multiple times like from this bring into september from september and november and then from november into december. I think that paints a clear picture of okay. Yeah like we know. This thing isn't ready yet but we think we can get there. Okay no like. It's not ready but we we think we can get there with the next delay and that combined with the idea of okay. Yeah no we want to release twice so that we can double dip on consoles And them having to delay into basically the next generation was still have the current gen versions only available. I think that speaks to the fact that they they understood that they weren't ready And it's very much seems like a shit or get off the pot situation for them. All right yeah. We got to put this thing because if we don't like we're not gonna make the money on it and we can't keep people waiting we'll this game everybody be ready. I feel like those questions get asked overall. This feels like a tale of a studio thinking that because they put out a successful project that means that they can't have a fail and that is very evident that specific quote from Jason's article where he talks about. How like people were challenging the timeframe of sarah pumpkin whether or not they could get on time and somebody basically answered back. We'll figure it out along the way because he made the winter three and that is not an acceptable answer right like that shouldn't be cause for complacency. Because you put out incredible project. Five years ago i forget if i mentioned this in the actual article but like there was also the reference of how quickly the team grew after the witcher. Three like basically. The team doubled in size between the wichita. Three and cd project red and they didn't necessarily account for that. And so when you have a team that grows like that. And you don't your your company culture and your pipelines and your processes don't grow alongside that to allow for that For for that ease of growth. Then yeah you're gonna have issues like you can't you can't you can't operate like a big company but also still behave like the small indie company in that. Seems like a lot of what they're what they're doing. Which is unfortunate. Because that's result in sarah twenty seventy seven. Yeah absolutely you know the. I think most shocking thing to come from this are the implications. That three was fake. Like that to be something that i struggled to fully believe or fully. Get behind this on so much. Believe as budgets. Get behind that statement. Because it's like all demos or fake demos to some extent. And i feel like that's this to me is a perfect example of when it rains it pours and it's like when you make dire mistakes you're going to get called out and then you get exposed for every single thing To levels that you wouldn't necessarily be criticized and everything else right you know But anyways like yeah the the each. I definitely want to know more about of him implying. It's fake or not. We do have more context on that. Because adam consider not consistent adam oh no it. Is adam barsky. Yeah from cd project. Red actually responded on twitter. Quote tweeted jason with a whole response. I'm gonna pull from adam. Bankers with adam. Bankers did a good write up on it. From aegean the response goes like this. Adebayo adebayo the steam ahead of cd project. Red has responded to a recent report regarding cyberpunk twenty seventy seven alleged fake three demo and development issues while it's hard for a trade show game demo not to be a test of vision or vertical slice two years before the game ships. But that doesn't mean it's fake but ask you wrote. Compare the demo with the game. Look at the at the other side. They're dum dum dum dum. I'm not sure how that's pronounced. But look at the dumdum seen or the car chase or the many other things with the people reading your article may not know is that games are not made in a linear fashion and start looking like the final product. Only a few months after launch or a few months before launched if you look at that demo now is different. Yes but that's what the work in progress watermark is for. Our final game looks implies way better than than what the demo ever was as for missing features that's part of the creation process features features. Come and go as we see if they worker not also car bush's exist in the final game almost verbatim to what we showed in the in the demo.

Social Media Site Gab Is Surging, Even As Critics Blame It For Capitol Violence

"The amount of election-related disinformation online has dropped dramatically at after several media platforms band president trump. Almost two weeks ago. Facebook twitter pinterest instagram spotify twitch suspended trump and several of his allies on january eighth two days after the deadly insurrection at the capitol and since then misinformation on those savings as plummeted by more than seventy percent. This according to the research firm signal labs dr thompson staff writer at the atlantic joins us from washington as he does every monday and derek. This should not be surprising. Studied by cornell in october showed that globally around the world. President trump was the largest driver of false information about the coronavirus. Still your thoughts on this ban. Reducing disinformation by seventy percent. I think it's pretty straightforward Donald trump is the former in chief. He has been missing former chief for all four years of his presidency. He has tens of millions of followers. So anyone else who was similarly dishonest or similarly disinterested in truth Gonna reach nearly as many people because they don't have tens of millions of followers on twitter and so of course banning him from the site is absolutely reduced this information. It's it's made it harder for him to put stuff into the public waterways of of information and it's been hard to re tweet him or to jump on conspiracy theories and then embellish them as as we have seen so often on twitter on facebook across social media so it's not surprising at all and this is i think exactly what a lot of social media critics have then predicting for years. They've said if you directly. Take on the leading mongers of disinformation. You're gonna be able to erase it from the site. Yeah okay but quite couple questions. Zig no found that twitter mentions election fraud. Went from two point. Five million to just over six hundred and eighty thousand it reports that hashtags related to the insurrection at the capitol dropped a core across platforms by about ninety five percent. Twitter by the way also banned seventy thousand accounts affiliated with ridiculous and baseless cunanan on conspiracy theory so first question given how immediate the impact was. It doesn't show that these platforms could have done this sooner. I think this is tough. So social media has in the last decade banning. What i acquainted with the wild west in terms of its regulation they haven't exactly applied laws evenly. They don't necessarily even have laws. The kind of regulation that you need to apply across social media platforms facebook twitter etc doesn't exist at the federal level yet and as a result there was a little bit of a lese sayre anything goes sort of feel like and if you've ever seen a television show removing about the wild west in the middle of late nineteenth century that's essentially what you had Online now we're starting to see the law creep into the proverbial wyoming's of twitter and facebook. They're starting to really take action against people that very clearly violated terms of service. And in this case you know incite violence basement conspiracy theory. So i'm not surprised at this happened I think that the incident of one six the insurrection. The capital siege Essentially served as a litmus test And you saw a lot of social media companies essentially act around that. But i think we need rules going forward because hopefully fingers crossed. You're not gonna have moments like the capital siege or that insurrection every single week but you still need some law going forward determine who stays on the site and who violates the terms of service so much. They have to be platform. Well wait a minute. Isn't this though. Whack-a-mole i mean doesn't this mean that president trump and his allies and white supremacists who follow him and average voters will just gravitate to or create other forms. Really interesting question. So on the one hand i totally agree with you If they're kicked off of facebook kicked off of twitter they're just gonna go to some place like gabar parlor but with parlor for example we saw that parlor itself was somewhat d. platform. Or at least unserved. You had companies that were providing both its servers technology and discover ability. Essentially say you have proven yourself beyond the pale and we don't want to work with you anymore. So we'll see where these people go because they're going to go somewhere right now. I think they're probably going to this other social media site called gab But it raises the prospect that today you know you look at a place like facebook and twitter and it is inclusive of a huge wide variety of ideologies. Far left to far right. But what happens when social media sites essentially. Start to buy kate by ideology. Where say you know. The centre-left is on twitter and conservatives are on You know gab And then the leftist go onto some other platform. It means that are already fractured already. Somewhat shattered sent to the shared reality in america is going to become even more fractured an even more fragmented

Three more road hampton wick kingston-upon-thames a short drive away from the briefing location. The rate had been brought forward because it was known. The suspects at seymour road with flying out of heathrow the next day detective inspector dick lee led the briefing and all present hung on his every word. Small writing group consisted of several operation. Julie detectives including stephen bentley and eric wright who had been undercover in rural wales on the wider inquiry. Also present were a small group of scenes of crime officers who were going to search the house in gather evidence. The officers left the briefing and took up position. The raiding party had split up some went to the front door while others went to the rear of the house. That was inductions. It was eight. Oh five pm exactly and detective constables. Bentley and right in the groove that clambered over offense at the back of the lodge detached house as the to approach the french windows stevenson to greenwich his mate and colleague. Eric who was alongside him. There was a cry of geronimo. In eric's unmistakable gloucestershire ebba. Then one of the offices sworn garage bar breaking the glass windows. That was shouts. It police stay still. Don't move but officers could hit people running scurrying around like giant mice. It was mayhem for one. It was a little scary. what would they find. Would there be resistance. Oh violence what would happen next for detective constable stephen bentley. It was a life changing experience and it all started with a phone call. He received from detective inspector. Dick lee the operational commander of the newly formed. Secret of julie squad back in april one thousand nine hundred seventy six. The following podcast is brought to you by true crime investigators. uk but who are they. Joan was a police officer for thirty years working locally and nationally as detective. Sally was also a police officer. For twelve years and then retrained as a lawyer and practiced in criminal law now both retired and review cases of interest. Some sold some undetected throughout this series. They'll discuss the cases. They're reviewing and interview relevant parties including police officers suspects witnesses and experts. The next case for review is counted drug investigation operation. Julie which took place in the mid seventies and an interview with one of the undercover agents involved in investigation steven bentley. Just like say welcome to everybody and all of our listeners. Whether you'll new to his own not and we just wanna say that. We're really pleased with the progress of the series. We've been so well received without a lot of interest and with hudson good reviews as well. So what do you think of the response john. Well we're absolutely astounded as the worldwide coverage that we received and the fact that we now talk into all the podcasters in the crime community. Australia america all parts of the world in fact. And we're just can't believe how we've taken off and mainly because of the lockdown of course technologies sort of come to the fore everybody's now on skype and other types of media which is fantastic. Doesn't it it has. Yeah i'm we've been am dragged into the twenty first century whether we like it or not so with within our podcast series. We want to cover all kinds of serious crime. Not not just the murders but in particular. We've got an interest in undercover police. In way we're interested in the work that undercover officers do when the pressure that that brings and then potentially the danger that that brings with that kind of work and with that in mind. We decided to bring operation. Julie to the podcast. Both of us had read a book called undercover operation jubilee. The inside story and that was really fascinating book written by one officer who was involved in operation julie and his name's steven bentley. So we sort of conducted some research around. That didn't wait. What we found was that there was a detective inspector. Dick lee in thames valley drug squad and he was putting together his sort of annual report. That a ba- late nineteen seventy four and he realized that there was some kind of anomaly in the his undercover officers. Were very active in the pop festival scene and regularly they were being offered amounts of ls stay and considerable amounts of lsd.

Harriet wrote letters to dr nor com falsely claiming. She described to the north. This time around. She hoped dr nor comet sell her children to their father. Eventually this plan came to fruition and sawyer bought both of his children back from dr nor com soon after sawyer was elected to the house of representatives and moved with the children to washington.

Jean fagin yellen corrected that narrative with her annotated edition of incidents yellen lays bare at the true identity of the author and the limited role child played in publishing the original manuscript at long last. Harry its name was attached to her work. Her role as auto biographer transformed. The significance of the taxed inherits writings. She describes her state of mind. She rejected the advances of dr nor calm in favor of sam sawyer. She explicitly discusses using her sexuality. As a tool to manipulate the white men who sought to further subjugate her harry it also acknowledges the judgement she received as a woman with two children born out of wedlock in her book. She argues that it is cruel to prescribe nineteenth century. Morality onto enslaved women as their fundamental rights had already been so profoundly violated incidents in the life of a slave girl remains one of the most important books of its kind. It is the only first hand account of the life of an enslaved woman at the time and gives unmatched insight into harry. It's perspective as she fought against forces of sexual and racial oppression in doing so. The autobiography occupies a unique space in both african american and feminist literature

How to Call People In (Instead of Calling Them Out)

"Loretta great to meet you. Thanks for coming on. Thanks for having me on your show. Fortunately or unfortunately this is the perfect moment to have you on I wish it was a calmer moment in history but given that it's not i'm glad that Have the chance to talk to you. When i woke up on wednesday morning after the election. I was you for 'cause. I knew that we had turned georgia blue. And in five hours later i was Because we have so much further to go to bring our country back from the brink of self destruction and so royal emotions right now because i fear for our democracy even though i call myself the queen of the call in culture. There's some people. I don't want to call it at all. I'm gonna call him out because they enabled this insurrection. Seems to be that. If they can't control it they don't wanna share a democracy. You said before that you have the the the moniker of the queen of the call in culture. Do you have any hope that there are some constructive calling in that can be done at this time in a country where we are really at each other's throats all at each other's throat if you don't mind out indulging me tell you how i see the world i think that first of all i live in ninety percent bubble of people who are progressive sometimes even call us radical which i don't mind i consider that a compliment but the people that i most in conversation with. We understand that. There's things like racism. Sexism homophobia transphobia immigration violence. At all of that stuff going in the world we even have our own little lexicon of all the 'isms that we talk about and part of my problem is that we in the ninety percent bubble. Spend too much time trying to turn ourselves into one hundred percent. i like. we're supposed to perfectly align with every thought as if i work on women's rights that means i'm doing something wrong because i'm not working on trance. Right if are working on trance rights. Doing something wrong. If i'm not working on racial justice on and on and on that's why i call us a circular firing squad because we're all on the same team but we spend our best anger on each other for not being cult members. We're all supposed to be. Apparently one hundred percent aligned. Outside of us are what. I call the seventy five percenters. These are people. Who don't use our insider jargon of homophobia all of these other words but they're lined with us in a world view. So since i'm a women's rights activists a seventy five percent for me would be somebody like the girl scouts where they may not be organizing the girl scouts to market a protests. Like i would. But at the same time they worked for women's and girls empowerment so they will be my ally even if they are repelled by jargon. So i'm gonna to find a way to talk to them in a register the fake it here versus the register that i used for the ninety percenters. Outside of the seventy five percenters are the middle of the roaders. Did a fifty percent of those people like my parents. My father was a lifer in the military in the army very conservative retired. After twenty six years my mother was a southern evangelical christian woman and there probably wasn't a whole lot of common language evacuate us from ninety percent bubble on my parents but at the same time. They taught me their values. And i'll tell you a conversation that my mom had. I had one day back in the fifties. My mother has started a black girl. Scout troops in san antonio was because black girls want allow to join the white girl scouts troops and every weekend we had to cook food and feed it to the homeless people in san antonio and so mom could never figure out hat what is social justice. Human rights activists did and finally. I put it to us and mom deliver when we had to feed the homeless people when i was a girl scout and she of course she she said yes. I said well as human rights activists. I asked why they're hungry in the first place and she got it because she said oh okay i feed them and you wanna know why they're hungry and so you can use that kind of values driven language to talk to fifty percents if you stay away from your jargon and your assumptions that they don't have values that you can agree with

A protected right? Free speech and social media

"President Trump was banned from Facebook and permanently banned from Twitter. For certain inciting language. We also watched his Amazon suspended the right wing social media platform parlor from its sight lawsuit ensued. It's pending. People are crying. First amendment has been violated. What are your rights are their First Amendment rights when it comes to Social Media and consortium media banned people for reasons that it feels are appropriate. Joining us to talk about this is very interesting is she was Eric Goldman. Who is a professor of LOT Santa Clara University School of Law in the Silicon Valley, his co director of the high tech Law Institute, and he is gonna explain it all to us. Hi, Professor Goldman. Thank you for joining me. My pleasure. Thanks for having me. I'm gonna start by asking you Is there a first Amendment right that a person has to use Twitter. The short answer is no. The First Amendment only applies to state actors entities of the government. Since Twitter is a private actor, private publisher. It's not covered by obligations that the government is So in and I just I wanna explain it this way. If I am saying things that are harmful or offensive, and I say to Twitter what you have to publish them, it doesn't create a First Amendment problem for Twitter. Meaning Twitter can't be forced to publish things that it doesn't believe are appropriate. Is that a fair way to look at? Yeah, that's 100% correct. In fact, if you look at the First Amendment guarantees the right to freedom of speech and freedom of the press, And so when Twitter is choosing to publish their party content, it's acting is a function of the press. So the First Amendment applies under that freedom of the press obligation Now, people there's something about it that Is driving everyone crazy because in this country, we believe we can say anything at any time. And who is it? Who are our Amazon? And who is Facebook? And who is Twitter to tell us what we should be hearing and not hearing. Explain to our listeners. Is this fair and I guess there's two questions. Is it fair? And what are the legalities of that? And what are the What are the ramifications of that? Yeah, it's the same question that we have with your own radio station that everyone's listen to. Right now. That's radio stations are obligated to provide air time to any listener who wants to call in. He just him screaming in terms of who calls in and then if someone's out of control, saying things that are inappropriate, you're going to cut the mic off and none of that. Whatever assume is a violation, their First Amendment rights, they would say. That we expect this radio station Tonto cater to its audience. So the entire premise of um WGN making sure that the broadcast continents fit for its listeners. It's identical to the thought process that we applied to places like Twitter or Amazon that they're going to publish what they think it's fit for their audience. I'm going to give out our phone numbers. I'm better. Some people have some questions for our professor here. 3129817 200 Let me play doubles advocate here and you look at the statistics on where people get news and this is so different than it used to be. When I was a kid. We was all the newspapers and and news on television, And now much of it is done on social media Getting news from The Internet and and things that are published online. How fair is it to have certain people be in charge of deciding what's harmful, inoffensive and what's not, and a lot of people are saying, you know, I hear all this horrible racist stuff that we, you know, on Twitter, but yet we are president can't be on Twitter. And what did he say? And what How is it that that was worse than what somebody else said? How is this fair? And how should we deal with this from a legal perspective going forward? Well, I think that people have very different views about what's fair. So I find that when we start shifting the evaluation metric there, um I think that we're probably not going to end up agreeing that a zoo community But just you went back to talking about how things were when you were kids. I don't know how far apart we are in aged, But when I was a kid in the mid 19 seventies, there was one local newspaper, and there were three television stations that could reach a community, right? WGN was one of them on and in those days, um even in when there was such Linda channels to reach a community there was a Supreme Court case called Miami Herald versus Tonio with the Supreme Court said You can't force that newspaper the only one that's catering to that local market to publish content that they don't want to publish that violates our freedom of the press. And so, it's said. That's true, even though that paper might have a local monopoly, even though there's only that one. We still don't think that that's permissible under the First Amendment. We're making incursion on their free speech rights. So you see why the conversation about fairness is so difficult because I want the right deal. Say whatever I want whenever I want. You said that earlier, um but but the reality is that we have to look at all the different competing interests when we think about Uh, who gets the right to say What toe Which audiences? Okay, so again, I'm just gonna go over this, because is there any obligation on the part of Twitter? Let's say to be fair, meaning if I said the same thing you said, and they cut me off and they didn't cut you off. Do I have a right to sue? Do I have a right to somehow have a legal argument that I'm not being treated fairly and I deserve to be treated fairly. It's a really great question, and I think it really gets at the heart of the challenges or bedeviling services like Facebook or Twitter. They really aspire to treat like cases equally. That if the Jackson birds, we say, said, by people in the same circumstance that they would apply the same rules to those that's an overwhelming challenge. It's actually not possible with the volume and scale that services like that engage in. It's simply not possible them toe always treat like cases equally, despite their best efforts, despite their intent. Um, but the reality is that because they're deciding what's safe for their audience, even if they make an arbitrary decision, one of which a content that was okay on day one from person A first would be a day two is cut off. That's their prerogative, and that's actually quite legally protected and their several layers legal protection. Provide Twitter Facebook, the ability to make those classifications sessions decisions, even though they're not going to get him all

Humanity's planet-shaping powers -- and what they mean for the future

"I work at the united nations and for the past couple of years. I have served as the head of the un's development program when i walked into the headquarters in new york city many years ago. The first thing i noticed was a sculpture standing outside under the flags of the nations of the world. It's called the knotted gun and it's still stands today to me that sculpture symbolizing exactly what the un was created to do seventy five years ago to build peace out of the ashes of war war. That had been defined for so much of human history as the struggle of nations against nations are the kinds still raging countries like syria and yemen that the united nations works to end every day. That's what i imagined that. Not a gun to represent but now another kind of war is brewing. One that increasingly defines the twenty first century with a dominant risk to our own. Survival is ourselves a few years or even months ago. If i had suggested that we're all at war with ourselves. It may have felt strange especially when according to so many metrics humans are on average healthier wealthier and more educated than any time in history. We have more knowledge. More science more choices today than the founders of the united nations could have ever imagined but somewhere along the way we lost our balance in fact think about this. Scientists are considering whether for the very first time in human history. Instead of the planet shaping humans humans are knowing shaving the planet it's called the anthroposophy and represents a new geological era today. Humans literally have the power to alter the atmosphere and the biosphere in which we live the power to destroy and the power to repair. No species has ever had that kind of power before within humans have achieved incredible things together from closing a giant hole in the ozone layer preventing nuclear proliferation to radicalizing smallpox. But we have also taken the earth and all the people on it to the brink. It's not the rational fair what we're doing today. One third of all the food produce on the planet goes to waste. While one in ten people go hungry inequality has become extreme twenty six people on the same wealth as half of humanity based on recent data today seven million people die from air pollution each year about seven million trees the very things that keep our air clean. Cut down every few hours. We spend over ten times more on fossil fuel subsidies alone than we do all. Investments in renewable power prolonging our common habit like a drug running through the economy's veins. You don't have to be an economist like me to know that these numbers just add up that our economic paradigm is neither sustainable nor equitable climate. Change rupturing inequalities record numbers of people forced from their homes by conflict and crisis for all of our power. These are the weapons we have built less tangible than a gun but just as real just as deadly at an epic pandemic and this year for the first time in twenty years global extreme poverty is projected to rise and global human development. A measure of the world's education health and living standards is set to decline for the first time since the measure began thirty years ago. Covid nineteen has not changed the future yet but it has revealed these deep flaws in our present bringing clarity to the fact that ending. This war against ourselves is not about tradeoffs. it's not about choosing between people trees between poverty or progress. It's about choosing to do things differently. In the midst of tragedy the pandemic has also given us a glimpse of what peace could look like where we can see the snow of a mountain for the first time because the smog has cleared. That's what happened in nairobi. My home of many years and one of the city's appalachian plummeted as human activities slowed down

"seventy second" Discussed on Baseball Together Podcast

"Back baseball family. So we're going to get into the world series You know I said at the beginning of the season there were a couple of things I wanted to see this year in world series was one of 'em because it meant we got through a successful season and. I felt like we did we had two big with outbreaks across the League had one in the one of the eastern divisions really which is what the Marlins and one of the central with cardinals. Really. But other than that may only be Major League baseball pretty darn good job again. Through the season healthy and getting to the world series, which is what matters. So what we wanted to see, so I'm excited to be here and by here I mean, still in my house in. Where they're pulling the world series. Because it's going to be the neutral site at life park where the Texas Rangers play. They were safe putting it there because Rangers weren't GonNa, make the world series and they had this big stadium they've got to introduce people to and they're letting fans in and it's going to be glorious. It's going to be an amazing event. But one thing that's different from the. Championship series into the world series. There's actually going to be days off. It's not going to be seven days straight and I, think that will be good for both teams because I've. Honestly Brig I thought with no days off in the AFC S I was like. I wouldn't be surprised the astros came back and won this. The do not have a day to come back and. Like a regroup. Yeah. Day You know a day off 'cause I think if there'd been a day off in the Al Cs that game that series would've over in six games. We're no days off. You know that they went seven and then finally the race came through, but there's going to be days off. So it's going to be like a regularly scheduled world series I. It's going to be good for both teams and I think we'll get a better series because of it. One hundred percent agree with you. But I will also say that all of the series leading up to this, they had no brakes are better than they've ever been. It's true though like you said, those were two of the best championship series we've ever seen. Yeah. At least I can remember seeing like.

"Said Casey I gotta be honest with you. I've gained thousands I found that dynamic super interesting, because they're saying the same things I guess because of her standing a little bit, or maybe just a little bit more careful is playing a little safer yet. She's suffering the promotional penalty. A hell of a lot more than Jason is belt. Why is that? Is it fairly? Because, Jason is bills more critical darling, even though case he's got a bunch of critical acclaim is because she's letting people down. Whereas those people that feel, let down by Casey Musk's weren't ever in on Jason Isabel to begin with. Yeah, I think there's a little bit of that like Casey's fan base is a lot like a cake like there's the critical element of it. That is the icing on it. And then the majority of her cake has gotten very tall. It's A. A multi layered cake with a lot of different fans. What's happened is when you when you expand like that. You have these fringe fans all over the place. It's those fringe fans that are going away. So you have to make a conscious decision because you're right, I think one of the reasons did not even on ESPN, radio, resonated with conversation around the confederate flag NASCAR is because to be real I've stood on stage massive festivals with fifty thousand people who looked out. Out and seeing twenty of them and I've had the debate you know and I said this is somebody on air. Last week there was trying to debate me about my lack of understanding of what the confederate flag means I. I've had that debate was smarter. People than that caller was on tour buses, time and time again like I understand what it means culturally to an entire group of people that don't understand why culturally me something else to other people i. you know so. So for for Casey the minute you get into I I would say like this massive fair and festival season, and that's like the easiest way to describe it when you can spend a summer playing country, thunder in Arizona, and then country thunder in Wisconsin, and then you're gonNA. Go play stage, which is on the same grounds as coach alerts just a week later, and you're playing all these, but you're playing. These massive fifty thousand people are are in this one field festival. Festival when you've gotten to that level you just you have a lot of fans that have a certain set of beliefs in the weed thing about country music fans in general, is it? They invest so hard into the acts that they the first day I played for Phil Somebody came up afterwards and said you're going to see a lot. This is my hundred and something Phil Vassar show and I'm like you're kidding me right like when I was with the band I'll never. Never Forget. We were in Ireland, and like we were walking up to the club that we were playing in Ireland, which was next door to the club. Imagine dragons was playing the same night right now we walk the club and they were like half a dozen teenage girls. It had seen our show like forty times, and they took mom and dad's money and went to Ireland like country fans invest right, and that's what makes a great, but the minute that you say. Say something that doesn't align with what they think. You should have said it can get really hairy, and that sort of the boat that Casey finds herself said I think finds himself in this position, and he's seems sort of torture just an interviews that you hear and types of music that he he attempts experiments some for the John Mara that he's in is Eric Church. I mean when they came out with that Song Jason Aldean Luke Bryan Church, where on it was. was like a three horsemen of the new country apocalypse. You gotTA SORTA. Pick one. It's sort of like Christine. Aguilera or Britney. You're either Luke, Ryan, Jason, Al Dean or Eric Church, and it seems as though like Jason. ALDEAN's sort of the Middle Ground Eric's on one side of the spectrum. And then you have total pop megastar. Luke Bryan who's to his credit I've seen. Lebron, concert a bunch of times vocally. Let's say it took the under on the national anthem, but Gomer pyle when he thinks that sounds like. But. He does tiger per, and he shakes hips and you get invested. That good genes I did the same thing. What position are they in because when I listen to Eric's music, he sorta seems frustrated by the situation he's in because I, know his aspirations, but he also has these mega hit country songs. These crossover hits that springsteen record was huge. What do you make of a position? A guy like that is in. Thank for Eric like it reminds me a lot of conversations about athlete sticky drafted later than they think like. Basically nobody wanted anything to do with Eric in the beginning, so he turned around and looked at Nashville and set up years. I'm going to do it my way and he did it and it's rare. It's rare to have an artist. Get Out of the system and come up and make it because Nashville is at its core. A GO board I get people always ask me. How do I get a record deal in Nashville? In my honest answer to that whether you? WanNa Gig a record deal. Is You move to town and you start getting years of people like I I don't. Don't think people really like for me I never once got a recommendation for a Gig I. Never auditioned for a Gig every everything I ever got from Gig. Came from a recommendation from somebody that knew me and many of them had never heard me play, but we were buddies, and everybody says I'm good, so it must be good. You gotTa be good to keep the seat, but it's a relationship now and so. Eric was never really fully. He never felt accepted. Then he went off the built this whole thing that everybody fell in love with, but I think that ship is still. Still on his shoulder, and then you start thinking about what it's like. Artists are just like athletes. They start looking around and they're like well. Why is this guy doing this and we're not getting this. And why is this guy getting an? It's like so many common stories you hear. Nashville are about artists. A that is risen quickly, but he thinks he should be touring. You know he's GonNa. Be headlining arenas, and everybody wants them to be the support act and wait. You're going to make me play forty minutes on that set. I should get forty five minutes and like Eagle becomes. Becomes, such a big thing and I think for Eric because he never felt accepted. He's come into the entire system with a chip on his shoulder. And now whatever acceptance you gets, I'm still not sure that he feels in love with so much of the national community, and so it's just like there's a weird divide form, but I get it because he wanted to do his thing. Everybody thought he couldn't he did it. He was right like he wants to come in. And have everybody finally acknowledged like. Hey, you should be a superstar. It also seems like he's kind of going. Going out of his way understanding the whole chief persona, and he really blew up massively and then for his next step, it comes out with outsiders as a totally different direction sonically, and maybe a lot of those fans are like no do springsteen were left a little disappointed. That seemed like a conscious decision on his part. Sure, and that's the hard part like I don't know can. I won't pretend to know Kenny Chesney at all, but we have enough mutual friends. In one. One of our mutual friend, said a couple of years ago. Like Kenny's tired to impeach songs as we are. Are, tired of hearing them right, and there's this moment where you realize at some point like I said earlier. No matter how much success you have, there's a label that comes in and sort of dictates a lot of your direction now. Some people WANNA fight to be free of that, but I I would argue especially in the mail on the male side of it. You can describe most successful country acts by a character statements. You can say oh, he's the. He's the eighties rock country. I'll chase now. The He's the ARACA rock playing country on its Keith urban only sort of the. The goofy guy that plays guitar. That's Brad. Paisley like you can. You can define each mega country star that we talk about in a like. He's the whisky-drinking Country Guy Blake Shelton right so air church never wanted to be defined by a sentence, and you can tell that by the way he puts out his records, but that's difficult for his audience. WHO COMES IN? It's not just the label it. The audience who comes in it's like well. I wanted another of the exact same thing record. You put out so quickly incident. Drink in my hand. Put a drink in my hand, Eric. Where's where's drink drinking my hand? But then the very next lead single is like an outsider, and you've let me into this club, but I don't really have much. That's why I respect them. I kind of like Jason is bells cost himself a lot of money doing this. It's good be Jason is bill when there's rock fans, Indie rock fans had lift them up like okay.

"This is our seventy second year in business founded in nineteen forty seven by my father, and we are licensed architects designers of every realm, you can imagine. And then a whole construction company. So the history of the company was really being an a very good builder, but the limitations my father saw is if you have very good design and very good building. If they don't communicate. Well, then you've got left hand and right hand a little bit of the game of chairs if you remember that from being in grade school, so communication matters. And then the quality of the design and the responsibility for the construction team to inform the designer upfront. What's this thing gonna cost, you know, keep in mind about seventy percent of construction projects that are designed never get built? Because they don't have that active. The voice of estimating. Well, you know, I describe home remodeling, which is the business where in as pretty much going to the grocery store, but nothing has a price on the shelves. He just kind of go down and put it in the bag. What you think then you go to check out you get prized? Well, better way to do that is really have the construction and the design partnered in there together. So you get that real time information all the time.

"And that was right around that period where it really started to bubble up and little flip, ran the game for a little while there with Mike Jones being the other side of it, it was like low flip and then the Swisher house guys. And it's funny last night I was thinking about, like I saw a message from somebody that said, man, I never realized or appreciated Houston rap very much until now. And I was asking myself, why is it that the golden age of Houston rap is so much easier to appreciate now for people outside of Houston. And I think it's as a result of the rap gang getting dumbed down a little bit like it's not so much about we're IX and being lyrically clever and smarter than everyone else anymore. That's not the case. Now it's more about like thing about this Twenty-one savage moron. Almost brain dead. All the mobile rappers are idiots. You've got guys like Travis Scott, who know what he would argue as like Leary cly masterful. He's not exactly gnaws, but he makes bad ass. Dope shit that that sounds cool with great beats. I think that level of like lyrical. Intelligence is no longer required. So if you go back and listen to all like when you were playing Houston rap back in two thousand five, two thousand seven, whatever. You thought these guys are morons. You like I did with these dudes are doing and this is tight, but Paul wall might need to go back and get his GED like shit like that. Like you were at no point where you think like these dudes are masterful lyricists and as a result, I think a lot of people didn't take it seriously like it was fun, but it was a phase and people saw it as a fad, and people didn't take it seriously because it wasn't hardcore enough. It wasn't like New York, Jay z. or you know, whatever you want to compare it to. But I think now we've kind of gotten away from that. It's like we're not so snobby with our wrap and wrap Uris are so snobby with their with their judgment. I think the general public has is more accepting of rap as a John. Like ten fifteen years ago, people were still more like a rap music with the speakers and the baggy pants, and it's like, that's not the case anymore. There's less of a stigma to wrap in all in all. It fits better. Like I think if those dudes if Houston rap peaked in twenty eighteen instead of twenty two thousand five or whatever it would have been a totally different level of success nationwide worldwide, because the climate is just more fitting for what we had going on in Houston. What we continue to have gone on, like the style hasn't changed much. Anyway, I just wanted to share that thought little flip the way we ball is the Houston rap song of the week, and we have now reached the point in the show in which, unfortunately, I have to tell you about your legal obligations. If you've never listened before, don't be taken aback by this. It's not personal.

"Maybe you're one of those people who's like, man, I'll just pay some cleaning services, one hundred and fifty bucks or whatever. No, just do it yourself. This is a great opportunity to learn how to deep clean the very important skill set to have as a human being because on occasion, you're going to need to deep clean, get your shit feeling brand new and fresh his hell straight out of the box to get that feeling. You're going to need to be good at cleaning. You need to go to the grocery store. You need to load up on fucking dusting. Shit, get a swiffer, the wet and the dry. Get a mop, get a broom, get some magic racers for the walls and just go to town. Put in your air pods, or your headphones or whatever. Maybe you'll I in do it dominate that apartment, the better looking. You can make that appointment the more appreciative the the apartment. Complex people are going to be in that is not the point. Fuck them. It's about you. What is what is everybody always say? Do you when you're little kid? You go to a park for a field trip in there. Like, let's leave this park cleaner than it was when we got here, right? You clean up after yourself. It's a very good quality to have as a human being leave the apartment cleaner than it was when you got there same fucking concept it, it gives you a cleaner break that when you walk out of that place for the last time and you look back over your shoulder and it's sparkling, like you were never there. That's a good ass feeling. And then you can move onto the next domicile without any baggage or attachments to the old place, huge new, you know, phase of your life without any baggage. It's it's great. That would be my recommendation as far as Clorox wipes go. I've never heard of this. Clorox wipes only is kind. A serial killer move. And I respected though it's like Dexter style cleaning with bleach only. So if I if I understand you, you're not spraying anything at any point. You're just going around with Clorox, bleach cleaning the shit out of everything. I, it makes it super easy to get away with murder. I feel. In those core ox wipes. They're very easy to dispose of you. Pull them straight out of the, you know, the Spencer, whatever. It's not for me. This tends to be. There's like too much liquidity like leftover does that makes it like when you wipe down a counter with a Clorox wipe, then you would need to wipe it down with like another paper towel after the fact to get it's where it needs to be. And I don't like that step. I don't like that. I just I prefer to spray and wipe in. That's it. But I don't. You know, I'm not going to sit here and tell you that's a bad way to go about your business with Clorox wipes. I dunno, Mike, are you Clorox wipes guy? What is what is I don't. I don't love those. I agree. It's too wet. Just get some paper towels and some spray he I, I would I. But if you want to do it your way, whatever man do your dexter- style cleaning. Just get all that DNA evidence on one of those Clorox wipes. That was the hotline calls for today. Eight eight eight WR bolan next and final segment Houston rap song of the week.

That's you in DA ground legend not under under underground legend. Lil flip. You remember him. He was famous worldwide for what six months, the way we ball, it's, this is one of the hits off of his debut album underground legend, which I highly recommend the entire thing. If you're getting into Houston rap two thousand two right in the right when the Houston rap scene was really like breaking through the underground in Houston up into the mainstream of Houston. Again, I'm not going outside of their region yet, but in Houston, people started to realize like holy shit.

"Your intro is basically playing. One tune that is low enough where I can hear Ross Bohlin and the other one where he Ron bowler. This is a problem. I was confused for about fifteen episodes. Not really sure why you were doing this anyway. If you guys can sort it out. It's all I gotta say, thanks mother podcast. Gang gang. Ron bowler. What. What this is a very serious branding problem. Is there a possibility that the guy who made our theme songs name is Ron bowler and he's subliminally trying to convert all the Rose Bowl in podcast listeners into Ron bowler fans, this guy was confused for fifteen episodes. Did you think my name was wron bowler or you thought it was the Roz Bohlin podcast. And then I just had a theme song that was going wron bowler. Ron, Ron, Ron bowler. Fifteen episodes in. He said, like, I'm not sure why you would do this dude. I didn't do it no way. This is real. This just you. There's not a lower frequency of the song that saying, Ron bowler navy. This is my alter ego, my new alter-ego Ron bowler. If when I started acting like an ass, Ron bowler is who I become. Maybe I'll change my gamertag to Ron bowler. We're not going to change it themes on those. I need to know though if anybody else, here's Ron bowler call in and let us know eight eight WR bolan next call. What's up Ross and Mike, this is Austin calling from Maryland. Got a couple of quick questions for you guys. So hang out with my Perman right now, and I wanted to get your guys thoughts on cleaning your apartment when you have to move out. Because you know, I wanna get my security deposit back and I don't wanna leave it dirty the next person. But at the same time I wanna put in as little as for cleaning as possible. So give me your thoughts on that. Second question. I never buy any cleaning sprays for the bathroom or kitchen, and I just use Clorox lights on everything. Is this the cycle, move? Clorox, cut the fucking checks. All right. Thanks guys, cleaning you apartment. When you're moving out is the worst is so revealing in disgusting. There's no better indicator of how gross of human being you are, especially if you have like dogs or you shed a lot because you're losing your hair out the hymns again issue like you move a couch that hasn't been moved in six years, and it's just fucking hair everywhere and bugs, and it just rat pellets is just disgusting.

"So that's where it's name, you know, was thought to have come from the secretary bird. Is a bird of prey. The secretary bird, but unlike mo- birds of prey type most birds of prey. Unlike most birds of prey. The secretary bird is largely terrestrial hunting, its prey on foot means it's, it's a, it's a land bird hunting on the land running around not flying. The adults hunt in pairs and sometimes as loose familial flocks, what does this remind you of the velociraptor from Jurassic Park also from real life when they existed r I p. Adults hunt in pairs. Sometimes the whole family rolls out together. That's crazy. They stock through the habitat with long strides. The things they eat insects, mammals, ranging in size from mice to hares and mongooses and crabs. Lizards, snakes tortoises, small birds, bird eggs, and sometimes dead animals killed in grass or bushfires. The way these things hunt, the secretary birds is one of the things that makes him so fascinating. They stop out there. Pray until the praise killed or a mobilized. Like you YouTube, it secretary, birds stomp, and you're going to see all this insane footage of them mostly stomping out snakes, the legitimately that's their attack method. They don't go at you with the beak. I know they fuck you up with their legs. They're able to create a force equal to five times their own body weight. Would these kicks with these strike foot strikes, Mike? You probably appreciate this as an MA guy. These guys have the foot strike down the kicks it, killing it, the stop and snakes out. They're actually being studied to possibly assist in robot prosthetics. They're unique. Anatomy is supposed to be able to assist in the development of better human prosthetics. They the remarkable forced. It's generated by these birds by the secretary birds has led scientists to believe that the mechanics behind them could be used in sporting prosthetics because of the quick speed in heavy force. Could be applied to prosthetics designed to hit in through baseballs. Which is interesting. It's a novel appliance for such deadly adaptation for such a deadly adaptation. While the common name secretary bird may not be the most terrifying in the animal kingdoms. Their scientific names are much more bad ass. They have been officially classified with the Latin name Sagittarius serpentine areas, which literally translates to the Archer of snakes, which is baller. They are named for their ability to annihilate even the most venomous snakes with these stopping them to death. As I mentioned with their long legs before swallowing them whole like a dinosaur. I don't know. It's like a dinosaur, but I guess because birds came from dinosaurs. Most birds of prey. Swoop down from the skies, right? They ensnare prey with razor. Sharp talons, like eagles is the main one I think of when I think of this, but that's what's so cool about these secretary birds. They remain more true to the style and fashion of hunting that that you would quit to their dinosaur ancestors. Just scanning the ground and then stopping and pecking something to debt before swallowing it whole. Another cool fact about the secretary bird very successful parents. They tend to actually be monogamous. They partner up build their nests in raise their young, very loyal to each other in these monogamous relationships and very loyal to their nests. They use the same nest for several years. Their nest can actually be up to eight feet across, which is a huge asked Ness, made up of twigs leaves animal fur and dung. Sounds gross, but it's perfect for them and their purposes and raising their chicks females usually lay three eggs and take the brunt of the responsibility when it comes to incubation, all the males are known to help out a bit. They fly up to the trees at night to sleep, and they're also known for areo mating displays when to potential mates meet, they take to the skies and engage in an elaborate ritual where they will soar to great heights. And then the males will perform an impressive dive bomb toward the female. She will often show her claws turn her 'cause and show them as a sign of approval. So they've got cool mating rituals. They're good parents day. Hang in monogamous relationships like humans attempt to do very loyal, bad ass method of hunting. They take out snakes, which fuck snakes. By stopping him out.

"You can trust me that all comes back. Full circle, your muscles, give out on you. Things start to hurt. It sucks. I'm gonna. Tell one more quick story you. You brought up the phone to the table and it reminded me of something I, I went to middle school with this kid whose name was his name was John. Okay. I'm not going to give you any more than that, and there's a million John just could be anybody, and he was kind of a bad boy, this guy, he was one of my good friends, but he was definitely one of the troublemaker kid's in the grade that all the parents were wary of like you'd go over to John's house and your parents were like, you know, don't do anything fucked up. I think I might have actually talked about him before at one point. He's the one who I let me watch Billy Madison at his house because his parents were a little more lenient than anybody else's because he had an older brother who was also a troublemaker. Anyway, this kid at one point, he gets a machete from somewhere like Mexico or something like that. And you know how in middle school when anytime somebody gets something, one of the bad kids gets like a machete is a weird example. But then everybody has to have a machete like machetes become the next big thing like everybody in the fucking grades, just scrambling to by machetes. For some reason, this is making my middle school sound like it's the purge. I sure you it was not, but for whatever reason there was like this few week period where machetes were really cool, and that came to an abrupt end when one day John showed up to school or in fact, didn't show up to school and then showed up the next day with an absurdly large like a hundred stitches or something like that. Just wrapped in his whole fucking leg was a mess. And here's what happened this this doofus he's a kid. I'm not gonna. Call him an idiot. You know he was an idiot on idiotic kid, maybe, but he's grown into a fine man. He should be proud of proud of who he is. I think I don't know. Anyway, he was sitting in a tree, chopping wood with his machete as you know, middle schoolers are want to do after school, and he sliced straight through a piece of wood and straight into his fucking leg. Now rather than tell his mother or father what he had done. He did the mica. He was like, it'll be fine. He wrapped it up and try to go to sleep. He wakes up the next day is still bleeding profusely. In his obvious problem, his parents noticed they take him to the emergency room. It gets all sewed up or whatever. And that was the end of the short-lived. Machete fad at Saint Francis episcopal day school in Houston, Texas. I don't know why needed to tell that story. I just did next segment animal of the week this week we're going to talk about the secretary bird type it in your Google machine secretary spelled just like it sounds followed by the word bird. This is an instantly recognisable very large bird with an eagle like body, but what makes it weird looking as it has crane like legs. Which it's like a four and a half foot tall bird. This thing would massive chicken legs like it's the only way to describe it. But the the head looks like an eagle, but it's got this like hooked Bill and has rounded wings. The from Africa usually found in the open grasslands and the savannah of the sub Saharan region. Also random fact, the secretary bird actually appears on the coat of arms of Sudan and South Africa. Its name was once thought to come from the eighteen hundreds when Europeans first started these birds back then male secretaries wore grey tail coats and dark knee-length pants. They also used goose quilt pins that they carried behind their ears. And this bird shares many of these same physical characteristics. It's long dark quills at the back of the head, long gray wing, and tail feathers that resemble a tailcoat and black feathers that go midway down the legs like short pants..

So I ended up in the emergency room and they put stitches in it. And it's funny because I gone on a date with a chick like the week before we were scheduled for date like the next the next week, and I was like, I'm not going to be able to make that. She's like, why I'm like I fell through my coffee table. I told her I was doing like as I was getting ready to go for a run to slip. That's always you would try to put a shoe on. That's always, yeah.

But that being said it was. That's the stitches. Yeah. Yeah. And it was expensive for Avin. Sure. It's worth it. You should have insurance. Health insurance is important, but yeah, that will show it to you. It's a pretty. It's like a four or five inch cut, and there's a big scar on it, but that's the only one I never really got hurt badly as a kid. I've seen my brother get hurt badly. I've seen other stuff. I've seen a hundred knee injuries and old man basketball now, which is the the most traumatic, Brad key. His brother, he went up for rebound came down and his knee like caved in, oh my God. It looked like if you took a golf or a test bond cut in half, you know, like the inside of it, yes. The front of his knee look to and. Cool. I, I was I got an office chair and wheeled him. I mean, got, and I've seen two or three like major knee injuries and old man at the JC old man basketball game. So don't just retire. I seen an old man blow a Hammy on a on a running the basis in a softball game, and just, you know, we've all seen the slow motion of like a lion just falling to the dirt. When the you know the cloud kicks up around him. Yeah, watching an old man human do that was just next level the pressing and I was like on their, forget this. Legitimately, I was probably fifteen sixteen years old when I saw this happen and it stuck with me like I can still see it in my head because I was like, that's going to be what happens to me one day. And that is what happens kids. If you're listening and you're still in your youth. You get older and it gets really fucking easy to hurt yourself and your whole body just gets sick and tired of you and all the shit that you're doing right now.

"It was dental work involved. Then many, many years later last year, in fact, two thousand seventeen. I'm driving in a car. You're thinking, oh God. Is this going to be a car crash? No, no, it's much worse. I was eating a kind bar and I bit into it and that same tooth the got knocked out by the full beer in highschool come straight out of my fucking head into a kind bar resulting in a real to talk about this. We're going to talk about it. Yes, actually, I did check on that with with our lawyer. Dave who I will send after you. If you don't rate review the podcast. Kind bar actually sit me five hundred dollars for my tooth coming out in this thing. And it's funny like when I first bit into it and it came out of my face and I was like, I knew I should've quit dipping a long time ago. It wasn't a matter of dip. It wasn't a matter of like poor dental hygiene at all. It was just that this cap had come loose over the years. And when I bit into that kind bars kind of the last fucking straw. And I didn't really know that or if it was their fault or what. But I had emailed them tweeted about it or something, and they hit me up and put me through to their like insurance people, and they ended up giving me five hundred bucks which is great. That covered about one fiftieth of the dental expenses. My two thousand seventeen was financially shot by this situation. That's the last time I'll ever complain about it. I promised, but that's the the I've been fortunate. I've gotten stitches a couple times. I'm I may have broken a bone. It's hard to say if it actually happened or not, maybe I'm going to say no, but maybe you know, I got hit in the face with a beer.

I remember still to this day, like screaming in this cop car because there was just blood streaming down my face. So that was the second time we got. You said you'd hop car yet due to Cup, took me a coupla like shit. This kid's going to bleed out and like threw me in his car and drove me to the hospital when it's crazy got to ride in a cop car for the first time little did I know not the last as a seven or eight year old. It was my first time, but oh my God, it would not be the last. I've been in those vehicles way too many times I have never broken a bone, which is a strange thing about me. Now this is going to be a little controversial. I've always claimed to have never broken a bone, but I did fracture a forearm or some shit in middle school. You know, Mike bristling match. You're familiar. Sure. Would wrestling mat, especially now. I'm sure you interact with them every day as you train for your exhibition. Bush true when wrestling match are stored. If you're in a situation where there's more than one they're stored, they get wrapped up like a fruit roll up and put on those giant, you know, and there's usually two stacked on top of each other. Well, I was climbing on that device that storage deal. In middle school, and I got pulled down by my foot by girlfriend like a chick that was flirting with the, you know, how wasn't middle school, the girls all hit puberty before you, and then they just beat the shit out of you for a few years until you catch up and start, you know, like nine inches taller yet hugging, or whatever. They all start to get boobs and you're like, what the fuck is going on. So this chick Chelsea who I've actually, oddly enough, I went to school with her from preschool through college, same middle school. Same pub. Same private, middle school? Saint private preschool, same public high school? Same university, very strange. We were also born in the same hospital, which is weird, but. She pulled me down off this wrestling mat storage thing. And when I hit the ground, I fucked up my arm and I ended up getting a cast put on it, but I'm not like is a fracture break, is this count as a broken bone? I only cast for like a couple of weeks that's a broken bone, so I have broken a bone technically. Yeah, I've always claimed to have never broken a bone, and I don't think I'm going to stop now, but apparently I have the only a couple of things that have happened to me that were severe injuries. I was sprinting around a trampoline at a party in high school in circles, like running in circles, just acting like a dumb ass. I was probably I don't know sixteen years old, a buddy that was jumping on the trampoline. Someone had gotten on the trampoline with a full beard that they had not opened yet. There's multiple people jumping on the trampoline, somebody accidentally drops this full beer, the full beers bouncing up and down with the body's somebody takes swipe Banu. Now, my buddy swipe, I'm running around the fucking trampoline and circles on the ground. The full beer comes flying off. The trampoline hits me right in the teeth in just brakes one straight out of my mouth. Another one gets cracked in half. Fucking disaster. I was drunk to which made it worse. I cried because when you're drunk, you get emotional. I was freaked out man. I was fucking the hole in my teeth. Faith fucking faces. All messed up. I need. This thing is my money maker. And as a result, I lost a tooth. I had to have it capped off..

"Like best buy WalMart, Sears, Sam's Club places you never visit on. I mean, why are those that latest czar it is, but that's and then I bought my parents TV recently now are on TV shopping, but I bought them a TV because they, they had one. It was old crapped out and it came and I got a great. It was like a fifty five inch or for like two forty from WalMart dot com who so nuts and it didn't work. And then then my dad ended up buying like a forty inch TV for four hundred bucks and I just wanted like yell at him, just blew it old man. But anyway, I that's one of the issues with TV delivery is that they often show up and don't work. This happens to a lot of people, and it's just part of the. For whatever reason that's part of the game. They often get like shook up in the process of young. I mean, the the big thing on TV's now is that they're all made with plastic parts. That's why they're so cheap and they're so light. Yes. And they're just not as an adult. I mean, back in the day, the the all everything was made with metal parts and they lasted forever. And that's why we're there were TV repairman and shit. Right? Anyway, we're talking ancient history now they're they're nineteen year olds. Listen to this podcast. Go on like what the fuck are these guys talked just happened? Yeah, I don't even know a best buy is no, but I also back when we used to go to Circuit City dude. Does that even exist anymore? I think he went bankrupt. That was another one like Sears and best buy, and it's working out mine shit. My speakers put into my ride. That's where you got your school? Yeah, fuck. Yeah, anyway, best buys. Awesome. I love roaming around that shit. Stone again, don't purchase anything. If you find something you want, just take a picture of it and then Google it, right. That's a tip for you. Pro tip making the six. That's another great thing to do when you're stoned, and it's an age old. You know, joke that Sex's better when you're high, but it really is a different type of deal thoroughly recommended eating at a stupid good expensive restaurant. Now, I don't mean like Ahmen. You've got that taco joint a mile and a half from your crib, the you love going to and get in case. So I'm talking about eating like a stupid good meal, like the best steak you've ever had. I'm talking about dropping certainly more than one hundred bucks on to people. And this is this is a rare occasion type deal. This is not something you can go do everyday unless you're rich obviously. But there's nothing like sitting in a really fancy really good restaurant, one of your favorites and just being highest shit and looking around like, man, these people have no idea what they're dealing with. I am just unhinged. I could eat all of their food at any moment and there's nothing they can do to stop me. My th the restaurant that I've done this at an Austin, a couple of times called Jeffries where have just been like violently high in there. And one time was on New Year's would say, and I took like a, I just got a new Bong, and I took a rip of this thing without really knowing exactly how much damage it was going to do. And then we went to the restaurant and I couldn't talk for like the first forty five minutes, like the waiter came to the table and I just had to stare my food 'cause I was so high, but then it got really fun after that, but in a in a stupid. Good restaurant, stupid, good, expensive restaurant. There's something about that like the. You know what's it called when two things are super conflicting, the whatever being real high at a real nice place where you're not supposed to be highlight that my vocabularies just fucked lately. The other thing, one more catching a show. It could be a concert concerts music great stone Superfund, especially if it's one of your favorite bands or wrappers or whatever. But it could be a play. This long. It's not cats. It could be a play. Could be phantom of the opera could be it could be whatever. Just not not cats. It could be the circus that's a show. It could be Cirque du Soleil or whatever, which by the way I still have not fucking seen..

Are I have a tire with a leak still? Yeah, I haven't. I, it's, it's a lot, but the other day after work I went by WalMart because it's close to our office Senator by this one and I got there. They're open 'til eight. I got. At seven fifteen, and they're like, oh, now we, we can't. We can't help you. We're on a weight and I'm like, okay, can you put some air in my tire? So I can get home though, are airgun doesn't work, and I wanted to just go into a rage. But I know that they're people in my life who would go into a rage and I think about them and I don't wanna be that you don't want to be like that. So I was like, okay, so I went inside and I went in and I was going to buy an inflator. You have one of these car inflator that you plug into your into your Ciro lighter. You spoke to that yesterday a little bit? I don't. I still not clear on like what it's an air pump. You plug into your cigarette lighter, and then you can feel up your air up, your tire.

It's it's a piece of work. It's it's like my pride and joy and it's totally unnecessary. But it's also legitimately. The TV is a very important thing. It I I can justify the amount of money that I spent on that TV very easily. I spent a lot hours in front of that thing. It's true. I I have a TV that is like, gosh, seven or eight years old, maybe ten years old, no way. Dude. That's that's ancient and TV use. Yeah. No, it really is. The problem is it works great still, but a bit. It's heaviest fuck it's it's heavy, but it's not unbearable on the wall. It's no big deal. But like it's like forty three forty two, something like that. And so like I wanna get the sixty inch and I want like the new technology and all the shit. But like this is a big dome TV that I put a thirty dollar Roku on and it does all the shit. The expensive new TV's do right, I but every day I'm just like I want it dude.

"I guarantee you they generated much more than one hundred thousand dollars in value, not just for Travis Scott, but for square caches. Well, in term I'm we need Darren, reveal the tells exactly how much. Sure, I'm sure during rebel. No, it's what the value of one download is for square cash, but I'm like, I haven't been on the internet this morning, but I'm. Sure. If you go to any hip hop website or pop culture website. One of the top stories can be Travis. Scott used the square app to give away hundred k. like that's right there. If there's ten, the ten biggest hip hop websites you've you've, you've paid for your exposure, the free media, you know? Yes, it. So I guess the moral of the story is big corporations to start handing out money. Yeah, apparently, I mean, here's the thing in only cool. This is awesome. It only works if you are cool enough for it to be genuine, and he is and. I'm just blown away by like him actually sitting there and doing it. And apparently it was just chaos on the square front, like in their offices, like the marketing team just didn't get to sleep last night, which is also very funny. But I just can't like to go from fifty bucks to like one hundred bucks to be in like, oh shit that's going to take longer than I thought and just upping it to like five hundred bucks and then a thousand bucks and just firing out increments of money all over the place left and right is hilarious an incredible. And I'm just props to whoever orchestrated this huge props. If it was just straight up Travis Scott being like I wanna do this and then doing it with no planning. I doubt that is the case. But if it is holy shit would've dude very, very cool. Good for him and good. Good for all the album sales and streaming downloads or whatever the fuck this generated for him. Astra world is an unbelievably good album. It's getting better every time I listened to it the first like five songs alone are just nonstop. Bangers make the whole thing worth it. But the funny thing about this that I was thinking like, this dude has just become like the realist version of robinhood that ever existed. He essentially just redistributing Kardashian wealth throughout the social media sphere. He knocked up Kylie Jenner. That's his baby mama. Now, this nobody outside of LeBron James is navigating their career story arc better than Travis sky. Right now. It's pretty incredible to watch and this it's not that I don't wanna. To take away from like his musical talent because he's a talented dude. But when he came up, people were like, okay, this is a Konya west knockoff essentially, like generic brand Kanye west born and raised in Houston, Konya protege that is just, you know, he doesn't have the the technical production skills that tiny Konya has. He doesn't have the lyrical ability that Konya has, but I'm, I'm just fucking I don't know what I'm not astonished. I'm just like happy for this dude in what he's been able to accomplish. He's he's getting bigger than I than I could have possibly imagined are from my friend, bear my good friend Barrett who's actually one of the people who got one hundred bucks by the way. Barrett. Dudley also got a hundred bucks. He has a podcast called club. Cool, which I have been on. I was on the first episode. You should give that a listen. It's on grand x. lad I was on the last episode. Mike was on the most recent episodes. I mean, the hundred k. is probably worth it just for the exposure. He got on Rb p in club. Cool. I'm sure Barrett's going to mention this today too. I'm sure you will and bear. It talked about a couple of weeks ago like whether or not Travis Scott is worthy of the hype that he gets in the exposure that he gets in the coverage that he gets. And I think since Barrett had that conversation, the answer has become unquestionably, yes, this guy's the real deal. He's not going anywhere. I'm obviously biased being Houston guy and every rockets game I've been to in the past two three years. This dude is sitting courtside going ape shit, which he's very distinct looking fucking braids or flopping around all over the place on courtside. And sometimes he has Kylie Jenner who's also very distinct looking. Huge s and you could see it from the nose bleeds, which is where I sit and I just I just wanted to talk..
