"Mandate face coverings after receiving an initial warning. Corona virus pandemic has hit another sobering milestone. Johns Hopkins University's tally shows there are now 20 million confirmed cases worldwide. Health officials believe the actual number is much higher. Given testing limitations and the fact that as many as 40% of those with the virus show no symptoms. It took fewer than three weeks for the tally to rise from 15 million. The U. S now has about 1/4 of the global cases at five million and counting. President Trump is again chalking that up to a testing boost very interesting because we're so far ahead of testing.

The Executive Order To Ban TikTok and WeChat
"He went ahead and did it president trump has signed an executive order to block all transactions with tiktok maker Bite Dance, as well as all transactions with Chinese tech giant tencent beginning on September twentieth. Now, it's worth noting that September twentieth would be five days after Microsoft's deadline to acquire the non-chinese parts of Tiktok or not. Quoting the verge, the spread of APPs controlled by the Chinese government continues to threaten the national security foreign policy and economy of the United States. The order reads the United States must take aggressive action against the owners of Tiktok to protect our national security and quote a parallel order. Banda transactions with we chat a texting APP in China that maintains a small user base in the US in both orders, the president names, the International Emergency Economic Powers Act as authority for the move, as well as the national emergencies act effectively naming talks continued operation within the United States as a national. Emergency such. A move is highly unusual and will likely be subject to a legal challenge. The executive branch has the power to levy sanctions against individuals and corporations by them on the entity list as the US did against Y. and Z., t. e. last year but such sanctions are typically put in place by the Commerce Department rather than the White House and Senate to specific rulemaking procedures that seemed to have been short-circuited by surprise executive order. The president also has the power to force the divestiture of US companies from foreign ownership through the committee on foreign investment in the United States or. But doing so also requires a specific process that seems to have been discarded in favor of a broader executive order. It's unclear how the order will affect talks ability to operate in the short term unlike Weiwei Z. T. The company does not require licenses to operate its network and nothing in the order seems to require APP stores to seize hosting the APP. However, it explicitly covers subsidiaries of by dance specifically, the US based TIKTOK division, and we'll apply to any and all financial transfers to and from those subsidiaries as a result. TIKTOK. Likely to seek a stay of the order in court or be forced to abruptly discontinue services as it takes effect and quote. So everyone basically scrambling to figure out what all this means. There does appear to be a loophole in the order because the order has a clause that reads quote to the extent permitted under applicable law and quote. But also, as Alex, tweeted quote, if I'm reading this correctly, it obliges apple to remove chat from the Chinese APP store, which would effectively kill the company's phone business in China. China represents a little under fifteen percent of Apple's global revenue. But at the same time, the order says we chat quote has over one billion users worldwide, which means it's counting Chinese users as we chat users given the references to chat having more than a billion users. It's clearly intended to apply to the APP globally I. think that would be substantially more damaging for apple in China then losing Google services was for way in the West. I. Think and yet this is the US government doing it to both and quote indeed, Bloomberg has a piece of art that we chat is banned from the Chinese APP store. The ramifications would be huge because we chat is a communication and transaction cornerstone in modern Chinese life. Being without chat would be a big enough deal for Chinese users as to essentially possibly kill the iphone business in China, and at the very least would probably be a big deal as to go to China into some major form of retaliation. Now tencent owns wechat tencent has a market cap of six, hundred, eighty, seven, billion dollars. Its stock was down more than ten percent afterward of this executive order came down. As Dan primack tweeted quote the tencent we chat order maybe more consequential for us tech companies because it seems to ban any transactions with tencent tencent invest in lots of us, companies including fortnight maker EPIC Games. Let's play this out. tencent has an investment in read it tencent can't do transactions after forty five days. So must tencent divest within forty five days if not, how would it ever sell trying to get clarity on this to end quote? Yeah I WANNA put aside the questions as to whether or not Chinese apps represent a security threat for the moment. I for one have uninstalled Tiktok on my phone because I don't trust it. But more immediately, I think most in silicon valley are watching to see if there is. Any immediate cascading of retaliatory actions by the Chinese that could put a cramp in wet silicon valley can do globally. Sources are telling buzzfeed news that an all hands meeting Mark Zuckerberg told facebook employees that banning tiktok would set a bad precedent code I. Just think it's a really bad long-term precedent and that it needs to be handled with the utmost care and gravity whatever the solution Zuckerberg said. I'm really worried. It could very well have long term consequences in other countries around the world and quote. While noted that tick Tock Band in India in June was being hit. Now he alluded to the idea that facebook products could become a target for another country. Later, he did however sympathize with the trump administration's national security concerns. Quote. I. Certainly think that there are valid national security questions about having an APP that has a lot of people's data that follows the rules of another country government that increasingly is kind of seen as a competitor Soccer Berg said quote.

Fresh update on "soccer" discussed on The Herd with Colin Cowherd
"In the NFL. Think about this general managers and coaches who have a huge influence on the sport on Sunday. Really have no say when it comes to see negotiations when they were trying to figure out everything with corona virus. It was all the owners and the Players Association. Now they brought in Andy Reid I think Ian rap sheet or Schefter reported. They brought him in to talk to the owners about we need to be a little more forward thinking here and almost be friendly to their side like we need to approach is the right way. We all WANNA play. We all need to be in this together, but ultimately, it wasn't coach raised decision because when it comes to football, there are two decision-makers. There are the owners and there is the players union and they're heavy hitters. That's all that matters when it comes to the money now, when football starts the coaches and the. Players decide who plays where, but that has nothing to do with the business deals they do with the way we consume in as a fan when you're sitting there on Sunday the reason it's on network is because of the League office slash the owners and the Players Union, they negotiate the terms In College football, you have administrators that wouldn't know the difference between a first down and a home run that are trying to pull the strings over the sport of football who literally pays their salaries. And then you have the influence in the sport. Athletic Department and I learned this in I. I didn't know what title nine was before I. Got the first one St when I was at Fresno State. When we wanted to get something for the football team, it had to be okayed by for title nine because the Women's softball team the women's soccer team, they had to get the same thing now clearly at Alabama. Lsu. At Ohio State, they're able to somehow. Circumvent parts of that, but it is not a normal business. You know you have assistant athletic directors that are making three hundred and fifty thousand dollars. Some of these universities have nothing to do with the football program, and yet the football program is at most schools, the only program making any money and some of these schools. Obviously, men's basketball make some cash to. But when you talk about men's baseball and I like these sports. Soccer, both men's and women's volleyball. They don't make any money. They lose money..

Abby Wambach: If you're not a good leader on the bench, you cannot call yourself a good leader on the field.
"Hey everyone. This show might sound a bit different today because we're skimming from three different couches. The scam is still working from home for the time being because of covid nineteen. Today, we have a very special guest joining us abby Wambach is here with us on skin from the couch she is a two time Olympic gold medalist, a FIFA World Cup champion, and a member of the national soccer hall of fame. Also, she hasn't slowed down in retirement she is now a New York Times. Author and equal pay activists. We I had the pleasure of meeting abby when we spoke to her wife, Glennon Doyle on the show in March and we dragged her onto the podcast as well, and if you haven't listened to that episode, go check it out. It's a good one abby. Thank you so much for joining us today. Welcome to skin from the catch. Yeah. Thanks for having me. I'm so thrilled and honored to be with you all on three different couches. Thou-. Before. We jump into our first question I have to tell you I was looking at our prep for this and there was one bullet in here. That has really made me laugh as I have to share it, which is that you used to have a special card that got you a free Burrito a day from AAA but it stopped working when you're retired that seems passive aggressive for sure to Poli what the F.. Yeah. So when I first got this card, it was Gosh I must've been ten years ago now and you know like the gold cards portly for life like essentially my name is on it and you guys don't know how I go way back. From the early days and I mean I would get a Burrito. Day You guys we're both creatures of habits. I respect this. Yeah. It was crazy and this is before we really knew how many calories were in each burrito. Bowl that I would make or Burrito early days. and. So then yeah, of course when I retired, I was super excited to still be able to get one free Burrito a week for year, but they never really checked up on it but then I think when I got a family when I married Glenn and attained. That you know fifteen dollar meal. Turned into a sixty five dollar meal or seventy dollars meal for the whole family and pull was like I. Don't know if we're GONNA keep floating this for her so. It was a good run while it lasted I'm sorry that you've struggled with that but I did make me laugh as read. So, we're going to jump into our very first question. We'd like to ask everybody it just skim your resume skin my resume. It's so funny because when you retire, that's like that's essentially what I've had to do over the last four or five years of my life since retiring from playing on the national team, and if people don't really know I played for a long time on our women's national team. So Ski. My life I'm the youngest of seven children I grew up in Rochester New York, and I went to the University of Florida and played soccer there for four seasons where after I was drafted number two by the way just remember this folks you don't get drafted number one. You can still succeed I was drafted number two out of college to go play for a team called The Washington freedom the best player in. The world at the time. Mia. Hamm played on that team and it really changed my life because we were able to develop a connection that then transferred into me getting called into the national team and playing on the national team in scoring goals in the national team, and then I had a pretty long career representing his country won a gold medal. I want a couple of medals actually I won a fee. For Women's World Cup. World. Cup. I should say it doesn't matter if you're a guy or girl that's pretty awesome in my retirement I have kind of taken on this activism role that when I play ironically when I played I was a little bit more like just go and do my job and we were going to show our activism rather than talk about it. But when you quit playing, you gotta actually transfer that. Because I can't play anymore I can't show it in the ways that I used to. So I've transitioned into becoming a public speaker and an activist and apparent and wife, and that is my skin. Has a great skin? What is it like to be really good at something where young 'cause I have? No clue. Yeah I mean it's confidence building you know I felt like. Okay. I know that I'm good at this thing over here but I think you know all of us have our little things right? Like no matter what kind of. Place we grew up or family we grew up in or what kind of trauma we we experienced as a child because we all do some of US feel like we're unlovable my case in particular some of us were neglected. Some of us were over parented like we all have problems inside of our family dynamics that for me really allowed me to and gave me the courage to propel in this kind of an individualistic career. So when I was young I kind of was a very big risk taker. I was a free spirit is what they called me, I think that's what they call children who don't follow the rules as much as their parents want them to and I think that the other side of that coin is I was really trying to get the attention of my parents, right. So the very thing that might have felt trauma or hardship from in my childhood is the very thing that made me successful. So I have to always remember that like as much as I as young as seven children. As much as all of us wanted the attention of our parents, I do think that kind of parent team actually shaped me and and allowed me to explore this competitiveness inside. In this drive and this embiid to go after what I needed and what I wanted. So I give a lot of credit to that form of parenting into that trauma
Rocket League goes free-to-play, but only on the Epic Games Store
"The biggest games the last few years has finally gone free to play Soccer meets rocket cars. It is Rocket League. The Scion IQ scree are Cy Onyx. The creators of Rocket League were bought by epic games last year. So this movie isn't a surprising one rocket leave will be leaving the steam launcher but still supported if you bought it there and will now be exclusive on the epic launcher for PC. Does this make more people actually get into the Rocket League? Yes, I think that every time something's gone free It's a play. I think that it is only boosted, at least in the short term. It's player base. I think that's the future of EA sports is like if a game could be. I think Overwatch has run into it a lot where I can't believe they've gone as long as they have and not announced over watched three to play like Overwatch two was first announced. They should have also filed it up with Oh, and by the way, the regular game is free to play now, having to go free actually puts it on my radar as a consideration to actually download and try playing because I played it before I'm so bad at it. And I'm not gonna spend money to suck that bad. But I was like that bad for free.

Back fits bath there it is I can't wait to. Lying the bathtub after baby and just enjoy myself. But let's talk about your skincare line. What is what is Montana skincare? How'd you come up with the name? What products do offer tells about like this whole journey yeah, Abou- in how your mom inspired it. Yeah. So modern organics is basically a simple plan face care line devoted to mothers and just kind of help navigate distress that pregnancy in early maternity kind of brings with say if in fun ways to pamper yourself in your growing belly but just also that self care aspect of creating that moment for yourself, it really comes through in our products and I wanted to really create something that I felt was safe in fun for MOMS to enjoy. During pregnancy and after and when creating the brand in finding the name was actually a really unique coffee for me because I had to really look to motherhood my own mom and my daughter and my daughter's name is Netanyahu, which in Hebrew means God's gift and that really resonated with me really love them meaning so much because I gonNA lose women that at a young age I knew I wanted to be a mom it was just one of those. Things like I always wanted to be a mom you know I I saw myself being this working mother never a soccer mom but I just always Selena most likely Napoli herself with a Mile Yeah. Yeah. So when I became a mom at twenty six seeing age, my mom became a mother not planned at all. It was like just such a miracle for me and so the name really resonated with me and when I was looking to my daughter and my mom. Montana just came in mind because in Hebrew that means gift. So I really loved that it had that cultural background but that me that you know that I really wanted to share the knowledge support in a widely wanted to give mothers that nurturing safe fun way to pamper themselves. So just as the NAIPAUL's that kind of gift remains part of the mothers that we nourish. but yeah, that's that's kind of like a little bit of the background. How I came up with the name in stuff We're you know we're kind of early on you know I, have a stretch mark oil instance bath, and both of them kind of again always keeping in mind how I want to like. Create a skincare. That's really mother's. Centered I couldn't find anything when I was pregnant in terms of oils that was fast absorbing save accessible just easy to put on in a lot of my friends as well. Overall consensus was like, Oh, I am do not use oils I. Typically use creams and lotions because oils are just sticky there messy. They get all over my clothes so I really wanted to create something that was easy to put on, but that would hydrate your skin at all day in. You could just put it on, put your blouse on and get going
Big tech CEOs testify before Congress
"So, this hearing just going to say it, it was six hours of chaos. So. So many things like individual moments of pure chaos happened this hearing. But because every member of Congress was only given five minutes to ask the questions in and they moved on, no one could process the moments of cash. So here are some things that happened during this hearing. Jeff. bezos just started eating nuts on his call. That was just a thing that you started snacking for the first ninety minutes. It appears that basis had tech issues was operating in some kind of delay. So we didn't hear from him. They just answer any questions and they'd take a ten minute break Jeff. bezos could fix his computer. Amazing. Jim Jordan, who McKenna pointed out. On the show last week is always sort of chaos element. Try to talk over several members of Congress got yelled to put his mass back on floated. Just elaborate conspiracy theories. was when I say was chaos I. Don't know if there's any other way to describe it. I. Think that led a lot of people to think the hearing itself didn't accomplish its goals, but I think in many ways it did. But Kennedy you WanNa Kinda go through what the committee was trying to accomplish the themes they were pointed at in. How hearing played out, right. So okay. First off. Harkening back to last week I mentioned Jim. Jordan's mountain dew obsession. Definitely drink a handful those throughout the hearing I took notes in screen shots. So, I, called it. But regardless of their pores soda choices, there were a lot of lawmakers who definitely did their homework and I think that was really apparent throughout the entire hearing and when I look at. The picture that they tried to paint I think that became really clear in chairman Sicily's opening statements. So this is the guy who liked. And spearheaded the entire investigation from the beginning, and in those opening statements, he pointed out that yeah Apple Amazon Google facebook. There are different in a lot of ways and they exhibit anticompetitive behaviors potentially allegedly and a lot of different ways. But what they tried to pull together and was a story, and it's really hard to tell a story and five minute fragments. But what happened yesterday was Sicily. Ni, and a lot of the Democrats on the Committee wanted to point out that these companies they become bottlenecks for distribution whether that's information or just like APP stores marketplace's they control what gets distributed in how what was really key to the investigation was how? How they survey competitors. If you have so much control dominance over a market or a specific part of the tech industry, you have a lot of insight into your competitors and you can do a lot of dangerous things with that, and then lastly, after that dominance has gained, it's how they abuse it. Right? How they abuse it to make harder for small businesses in competitors and I think that's exactly what Cellini pointed out in the beginning and I think they did a poor job that storytelling throughout the process. But I think that's also our job. Right is to pull that evidence together and tell that story for them in a way that isn't like. Yes, no yelling at CEOS and like stopping them and I think by getting that in the evidentiary record doing all this questioning, I think they really did achieve their goal in the end. Yeah. I mean, I think the thing that happened sort of next to the hearing was that they released a bunch of documents from these one point, three, million documents of clutch. Over the past year, they released pretty targeted selection documents for every company showing some of this stuff, Casey, I wrote a story about. facebook. INSTAGRAM. My I'm going to frame this email or mark Zuckerberg. Literally one sentence, no period. The Andrew says I need to figure out. I'M GONNA buy instagram like I would love to just be in a place were sending that email like super casually like I got this thing to figure out and it's not like am I gonNa buy the model of the car. It's like instagram. I've been thinking of the text messages where so and so says that Mark Zuckerberg's didn't go destroy mode on instagram ever since they got that up. Case she this to Kevin and right that text was. Yes. Well, it was Kevin. System was talking to an investor and Kevin said to the investor. If we don't sell well, mark, go into destroy mode on us and the investor side probably. Of course, stray casual. So there's just a lot of documents and I think one of the functions of hearing was to get those documents into the official congressional record to make the CEO's account for them. That did not seem very successful to me. Is like a takeaway people should have from this hearing, right? No. I think a lot of people that go into these hearings are expecting like these big Gotcha moments and expecting like a lot of news and all this stuff. But it really, it wasn't oversight hearing. You know it wasn't. They didn't come. They came at this like in a report last earlier this week that they came out at as investigators. They didn't come at it to make a big show horse and pony show out of it, and yet I think the CEO's didn't. The record well enough to the extent that they could have. But there was definitely, I was expecting them to do a lot less evasion and I expected a lot less room probation with the documents, but it's just the process of a Congressional hearing. It's. It's hard to do that in a congressional hearing. But if you put those documents out there, you get the CEO's on the record a little bit who does excite this excites the FTC. J, and that's who can take this next and then it's also congress. You know they can't break up a tech company, but they can regulate going forward and it's those three key themes that I pointed out earlier that they could regulate. You know what I mean. They could legislate to forbid companies from surveying competitors and things like that, and that's where this goes. So the format of the hearing, every member and five minute chunks, it seemed very clear that the Democrats had some sort of coordinated evidentiary strategy, they would start and. And they would say, I, want to read this email to you. What did you mean by this email and then Jeff bezos would say something like I have. No idea is on works. I. Was real pattern that developed was basis really not doing or claiming he definitely knows claiming not really no way Wayne is under the thing they did or they would ask sooner Pichai about the very granular add deal google made by an ad product, and soon I, would say I'll get back to you, which is basically all responses. So the Democrats seemed like they were coordinated to move through their documents. The Republicans seem to be doing something else that also seem coordinated intentional, but what was their focus because that seemed clear split my takeaway from Jim Jordan who? We got into earlier, he he was interviewing. As if they were all Jack Dorsey. And as we talked about like, yeah, he invited Jack Dorsey to testify, but he doesn't sit on the antidote subcommittees. Anything. He says, it just doesn't matter. So it sounded to me as if he prepared questions Jack Dorsey and then it was like, oh, he's not coming I'll ask Tim Cook the same questions. Another completely crazy moment that happened just seen by and five minute chunks is that. Represented Sensenbrenner from Wisconsin Dear Sweet Wisconsin. Definitely. Asked Mark Zuckerberg why the Donald Junior was banned from twitter and mark. Zuckerberg was happening on twitter facebook and there was just like a moment of confused silence, and then he tried to move on and that just sort of floated by in the river of chaos to tell you how much chaos there was kneeling. When you started to tell that story, I thought you were going to tell the story about when Jim Jordan asked him cook if the famous one, thousand, nine, hundred, four, Apple Super Bowl, AD was actually about twenty twenty cancel culture, which is another thing that really happened. I think that's out of context. He didn't ask him. He said clearly, this is. That's definitely what Steve Jobs was thinking IBM is canceled culture and Apple's going to break it with hammer and Jeff. Bezos said that social media is a nuance destruction machine and all this crazy stuff from that. It was a wild will that that particular question when Jim Jordan asked, do you support the cancel culture mov, you could see the CEOS like. 'cause they went in order. He asks them all in order. So First Tim Cook just like basically muttered nothing. Here's like I don't. I support speech whatever. The iphone a keyboard like that was his answer. Sooner per child also, just like muttered, right? He's like Google has always supported free expression Zuckerberg like saw the opportunity and took it and the forces of liberalism I rising I, and then basis was like I cannot. I cannot do in like went for it, and that was just totally insane moment. But it also seems like the Republicans were intentional to try to create their own moments where they were yelling at CEOS about bias on platforms is obviously something cover a. At. You were paying a lot of attention that case you're paying a lot of attention to it. Do you think that was effective in creating because you know there's like a parallel conservative Universe Jim? Jordan was on Tucker. Carlson. Last night like was that effective or d think that the CEO's were able to sort of tamp down on interesting the Tucker Carlson pointed out that Google and other companies are all big donors to Jim Jordan another folks. So that is a weird side, but I think it was actually besides the moment where they mixed up twitter with facebook I. Think this was much more effective off. Off Topic yelling about technology than we usually see like are genuinely issues that like they are upset about that, they could point to largely around like cove nineteen misinformation and they could at least like pick those topics and stick to them rather than kind of asking vague questions about like, why is my phone listening to me? Well, they're definitely asked questions about why are my campaign emails getting filtered by G mail? Yes. I should. I should mention that they have really and they have all of these cases where they ask about extremely specific one off incidents that anyone who has used social media knows happens constantly. And, then turn them into a sinister pattern. But I think they managed to come off as sounding more like they understood what they were talking about the unusual. I think that was a real theme of the hearing, Casey. What did you think of this sort of bias side show that occurred? Well, I mean the the idea that conservative voices are being suppressed is foundational to the conservative movement and is behind the rise of conservative talk radio. It was behind the rise of Fox News. Now that social media exists, we have seen it in this new form, but it is sort of being presented as extra, sinister and worthy of. Some sort of legislative intervention what frustrates me about it is that much more than newspapers or or cable news like Mark Zuckerberg Dorsey. These people benefit hugely from having all possible voices on their platform. None of them is incentivized to drive conservatives off their platform. What they are incentivized to do is have rules that make the place safe and welcoming. So that people want to hang out there and so to the extent that there are issues on the platform, they've largely come because these platforms have rules. And you know you would think that a bunch of free marketeers would realize that the alternative to the system that they're so mad about would be creating a new system, but they don't seem at all interested in doing that. So I just sort of dismissed all of them as charlatans I actually thought it was interesting that the opposite track came up, which was the Stop Hey for profit campaign I kind of wasn't expecting that. The representative Raskin I believe asked facebook. Basically, why aren't you kicking more hate speech off. I forget who else asked like look is the point that you're so big. You don't care about advertiser boycotts I. Mean, you know it will here. Here is a fact that the number one complaint that facebook gets from its users, the thing that users. About. FACEBOOK is that it removes too much content and so if you're running the place, you do have to take these complaints seriously in a way. Right? It might not be you know that you shadow band conservative whatever that even means on social network in twenty twenty. But the fact that you're removing content is really upsetting people. So you can't dismiss that idea entirely, but I still don't feel like we're having that intellectually honest conversation about it. So this was definitely I feel like you can connect the you control distribution. We're GONNA show the abuses of power narrative. We got other. Democrats. With the you control distribution. You're banning conservatives right like I. Think what's Sensenbrenner Again, cups and conservatives are consumers to is that people don't realize that like fifty percent of the population in many ways. But facebook has like famous conservatives working its highest levels Kevin. We last week, we're talking about Kevin Roose keeps sharing the list. List of the most engaged content from crowd tangle. It's all conservative content, and that's so problematic for facebook that they're. They're pushing back with other metrics and graphs of their own, making the facts just aren't there, but it doesn't seem to be convincing. Brett Kevin is being asked to recuse himself from facebook case because he's like best friends with facebook I, AP I wrote a column almost two years ago. Now, arguing that conservatives were trying to redefine. Any conservative identified person having any unwanted outcome on a social network, right? So bias is your name was higher than mine in search results. Bias is used suggested that I follow a Democrat and not a Republican right, and if you take action on your policies that apply to everyone against me a conservative that is biased against conservatives, right. So and by the way I have to say this has been hugely successful because we've talked about it. How many minutes now and the longer that these discussions. Discussions. Go on. They just sort of refi people's minds. The idea that there really is a vast conspiracy to silence conservative speech because he's networks are so big millions of conservatives are having experiences like this every day, and now there is an ideology that is basically a religion for them to attach to, which is although Silicon Valley liberals are out to get. Reason I wanted to talk about the conservative side show, which in many ways was a circus is it feels like the notion that we should be punitive to the companies or mad at the company's. Bipartisan, right we were. We were not looking at a hearing where the Democrats were on the attack. Republicans are saying we love. Apple. We're looking at hearing where they were. Everyone was mad. There are a couple of exceptions to that. There were a couple of I think sensenbrenner and a few other folks were like look we want to be clear. Big is not bad. We just WANNA make sure we're not punishing you for your success, but you were like almost entirely, right? Yeah. I. Mean I. think that's it's important to. To capture that mood like Jeff Bezos Mark Zuckerberg, Tim, Cook soon. Darpa, try they usually get to finish whatever sentence they start saying. Right. They're not used to being interrupted. Their thoughts are usually like you know they get to live in complete sentences and people take them seriously here in five in intervals, they were interrupted almost every time they started speaking to be told that they were wrong that they were filibuster at one point Sicily said stop thinking is for the questions. We can just assume they're all good questions. They. Were getting yelled at and they're going yell that about a variety of things that were pretty specific. So you kind of in your kind of structure here. The first one was controlling distribution. What did you hear as a hearing went on the indicated to that? The committee had a case here? I think the apple's APP store is one thing you know charging thirty percent cuts on certain things is just controlling an APP store. It's the same thing with Amazon's marketplace. They can inherently in control what gets placed and what gets sold and you know if they want to play with search results on Amazon, they can do that, and then on facebook and Google, it's not just like products and software that's information. And it could be information when it's like Google. Google. Stealing yelps, texture views right in putting those in its little info boxes in search queries in facebook if facebook is just like an. Mation, distribution platform and. It can decide Algorithm Mickley. Knowingly. What people get to see this bution was very keen to the committee's hearing yesterday and they pointed out different aspects in which you know each company exhibited that kind of behavior. So the one that will you bring up apple? We wrote about this, say there's much emails. Apples document production is just one hundred and thirty pages of unrelated emails and whatever order see it's like scan through it. So there's a lot of little stories in there. There's one about right to repair and apple realizing it needed to repair. By watching PR people operate by reading their emails journalists. Very entertaining. They're like we had a break like here's our strategy. Here's we're GONNA. That's all in there. You can look at it, but there's a lot about the APP store itself and how they're going to use the mechanics of the APP store to control their platform, and it started at the beginning like the first emails in this production from twenty, ten there. From Phil, Schiller Steve Jobs saying, are we GONNA? Let Amazon Sell Books in the kindle store. Store, it felt like I saw an Amazon ad was hard to watch this hard to watch this ad where a person's reading a book on an iphone in the kindle APP in the pick up an android phone keep reading. He's like literally like it was hard to watch like Schiller's at home like pain what a customer is having an experience that good it really just. Heart and so he's like it was hard to watch. You fours Steve Jobs. They're like we gotta shut it down jobs is the bookstore will be the only bookstore on the APP. Store. That's the way it's going to be everyone's gotta used to it. We know that restricting payments will hurt other things, but that's what we're doing and they started there in two thousand ten and they pulled it out, and then that ladders up into everything that we've seen with, hey, ladders up into the analysis group showing up to. Apple, can pay them to say that there's independent study has revealed. Everybody has a thirty percent cut. It has landed up into Tim Cook, forwarding. He gets a letters from developers that are in this direction. It's like apples breaking my heart and he just like Ford's it. Tim, Cook forwards that email to filter credit eighty, just as thoughts like amazing like they are constantly thinking about the APP store as a mechanism of control for the platform in the leverage and other deals. So the other one was apple is this Amazon one which I have very mixed feelings on saying that this is bad or legal I'm curious for all of your thoughts famously. Did, not have the prime video APP on the Apple TV and all these other places apple, Amazon came to a deal. There's an entire presentation in this production like the slide deck of how the deal is going to work. Apple got to be the preferred seller of its own product. So third parties cancel. Apple. Products, Amazon pages, they got. They have a custom by flow. They've custom product pages, all the stuff in return. Amazon got a lower commission on the APP store and gets to Selatan products which no. No like you can rent a movie from the Amazon APP on the Apple TV, no one else gets to it in one world. This is just pure platform collision, right? Apple cut VIP deal for big companies because it wanted something and you could say this is legal in another world. It's like this is how deals work apple something valuable. Amazon s something valuable and they came to a conclusion wherever made more money and quite frankly the consumer experience platform has got better. How do you read that? Casey? That is good and fair analysis of it. I. Think I did read slightly more scandalous. Tones into it in part because apple would never acknowledge that some developers are more important to it than others even though if you assume that that's true, I think maybe one of the things that's frustrating about it is there is no transparency accountability around which developers get sweetheart deals is that once you hit a certain threshold of revenue will cut your price. Why couldn't they extend that deal to everyone right? Or is it just if we withhold something that seems particularly valuable, we can eventually drag you to the table. Table, which is sort of what seems like happened here. I think in all cases, what I'm always looking for is the accountability, right like and some sense of of equitable treatment of developers and I understand the guys are always going to get the best treatment, but it can that be publicly visible. Can it be acknowledged and there'd be routes for others to achieve that same level of success and treatment, and that I'll just seems missing here. Did you buy Tim Co? He said it twice. It was obviously A. Glimmer, of sympathy for all four CEOS. There is a lot of reporting that they had spent months preparing for this hearing like being grilled there, they'd hire outside law firms. They. Practiced they all clearly had soundbites memorized in none of them. Got To say him because it kept getting interrupted. Tim Cook had this one where he is like if we're the gatekeepers, the gates are open wider than ever. We've gone from five hundred. APPS to one point seven, he said like. A whole speech. and. The thing is there's fierce competition for developers. They don't like our store can do for android the windows. For xbox and PS. Four. Which I was like the idea that adobe is going to be like we don't want to be on the IPAD. Here's PS. Four Photoshop is insanity to me. I'm going to build a spreadsheet. APP. For the five. That's how frustrated with Tim Cook. To that ring. True to you I. Mean, there's no, it does not ring true. There is a, there is a duopoly. In the United States when it comes to smartphones, iphones have majority share in the United States and you can't say, well, you know there's there's a rogue fork of android in Malaysia that you could go develop for if you really wanted to and have that come across as a credible argument to Americans. Right it is. Natural for any monopolist to spend most of its time, arguing that it is much smaller and much less consequential as as you think it is and they're essentially always asking you to ignore what is in front of your face, which is that they are the giant. They are in control. What they say goes, and it doesn't matter which small businesses get hurt along the. The. Way I would point out that the contact and we're gonNA talk about earnings eventually. But the context for that is apple had its biggest third quarter ever this month, their revenues went up eleven percent year over year, they're making obviously making billions of dollars in their services revenue, which is a lot of the narrative around the APP stores increasing that services line. Also went up. I think it was thirteen billion. So you're right. They're very big in their earnings the day after the hearing did nothing. To reduce that impression. I want to switch to Amazon a little bit McKenna. You really focused Amazon was basis first time up there. They came at him a lot about marketplace. How did you think that went I think it went pretty good. I. Think. John Paul specifically was just like killer her questions with breakout star. Yeah. She was just like killer and she's the representative for. SEATTLE. So this is where Amazon is right. So she just like killed it and. And I think there were a couple of instances in the documents and in questioning yesterday that really pulled important things out there was like testimony from one bookseller who was like, yeah. We just can't sell a category of books and we don't know why Amazon doesn't let us do that just like testimony like that or even when it comes to like acquisitions, the ring acquisition especially, I wrote about that today through the documents and how. They said, this is for market position. This is a for technology, your talent or anything. We just bought this and that's something that base said again, yesterday he was just very clear. It's like, yeah, we do buy things market position, which is like so insane just here like the richest person in the world. But like, yeah, we're buying market position. It's just what happens. That's another one I have mixed feelings right, and by the way, people should read McKenna story because those documents have just a very funny breakdown like the pros and cons of buying. Buying ring in many of the cons like what if this turns into nest, which if you're just the verge cast listeners like it's just like the Keyword Bingo, but it's fine to say, we're buying market position like this isn't the best product out there, but it's the category of video. doorbells is not huge, right? So to by the the market leader in video doorbells is maybe the most rational use of the money. What is the problem that you think the committee was trying to show an address sense of we're just going to market position. Pointing out, they can just do whatever they want and how casual it is, and there really isn't. It's really funny to read an email like that, and we could buy it or we could just copy it or are. We could just watch. You know that was one of the emails that base from someone. Those are just three options you know and it's like just pick and choose you know. Pointed out like a lot. Just that email itself really pointed out just how easy it is for them. They used a lot of that time history to talk about copycat behaviors and to talk about just like you know buying up competitors and it just seeing that all in one little e mail having to do with the ring was like really i. think it was really kind of I opening and especially like useful for the committee. So Amazon got hit a lot for the data collection side of it of copying competitors. bezos did not seem to have great answers there. Right. So that's the. The thing they got in trouble with this. There is that Wall Street. Journal article from like April where employees were literally like, yeah. We dip into data and we use that to guide our own private label products and everybody was like Whoa and Amazon basins. Yesterday said, well, we do have a policy that bans that but giant pointed out yesterday. It's like, okay. So what's your enforcement look like you can have the policy, but like if you don't enforce it, then it's like meaningless. And then yesterday I. Think Paul was like, can you give me a yes or no answer? Do you dip into data and he's like I can't I can't give you. Yes or no, and we're just like we're looking into it. The story had anonymous sources. So that isn't very helpful to us. You know what I mean. So that was one of the main things and that Wall Street Journal article and I think it's the same kind of examples in the committee's documents. They point out specific examples like car trunk, organizers of all things. It's like weird little products like Amazon's like this is a little hot. Maybe we should do that. So I, I think. I, think they made a good case yesterday. Yesterday on that. Yeah. I mean bezos brought up that Wall Street Journal, Article himself twice, and he was like, well, your policy against it. But I can't guarantee never happened. Then there is a strange just didn't come across clear I. Think I know what the committee was trying to get at their like US aggregate seller data when there's only three sellers and then only to sellers? Yes, I. Think what they're getting at is when you're down to the aggregate data of two companies, you heard effectively looking at individual data. What is the problem? They're like the I get what you're doing. You're just reducing the denominator to get to one, but like it, why is that particular problem? Right? Well, none of these. Dipping into individual seller data and looking at aggregate data. That's not a legal. There is no law. This is all voluntary of Amazon. So they have a voluntary policy where like we can't do individual seller data, but they say nothing against aggregate and aggregate what you're getting at eight. Here you is. Does the same thing if it's just like some goofy little product they. They bring up pop stock. It's all the time before pop tops in a moment. Right? There's only like one pop. So company like you know pop soggy, it was kind of an innovative product. It's like well, if there's only two of them and use the aggregate data, you you you have everything you need to know you know about that product line looking aggregate. If that's what you decide to qualify as do you as you're looking through the other Amazon documents and other stuff. So anything jump out at you is something the committee was trying to prove or get at. The questioning seemed very focused on. Like are you using the state at a copy products? Are you buying things? You shouldn't buy. There's one question which I did not understand why came up about DMC. Take downs on twitch and Jeff as just had this look of panic in his eyes. He's like I don't know man I bought Wedge because my kids want to. Do something like that was like the side show stuff, but the real focus here, it just seemed like it was definitely in the marketplace, right? Amazon, everyone came at Amazon for the marketplace. That's what everybody knows him as like they have all these little sides. They got rain. They got Alexa Alexa was one thing too. That was kind of interesting. It's like. Are you buying things like ring to put Alexa into and dislike expand your like Titan Ism as like an Internet Internet connected home. Thing and make that more closed off and walled gardening. That was one thing. But no, it was just focusing on how much power they have to kind of change. What happens in the marketplace to kind of decide what companies in what products are able to come up on the first page of results. You know that's also something that they dug into Google and in something that one of those like themes that kind of ties everything together. We should say they all spend a lot of time talking about counterfeit goods, and why is it Amazon removed? Fake stuff from the platform and how much is it profiting off of you know selling pick rolexes? Is it surprising? The whole foods didn't show up at all they're. Like that is a really massive thing. Amazon owns that. Is it moving into a huge new product category? I think whole foods is not an online marketplace, which was the title of the hearing, not that that restricted anybody from doing anything except that, one of the things Amazon says is we have lots of competition from offline marketplaces, right? Brought up kroger a lot I mean, this is the case he's point. They all made. It seem like they were beset at any moment. They could be crushed by the likes of stop and Shop Right? Like I think the point though was really on the. Digital. Experience Consumers have and like I, don't know Ho-. Foods fits. Into that narrative, especially, because it is itself not dominant like they bought it because you needed to grow in their. Good at that at my question for you on the Amazon stuff was when you think about, we talk about two thirty a lot right like you and I in particular spent a lot time to thirty, which regulates with the platform can do with content. There's not really an equivalent of two thirty for goods on store. Right like there's some case is out there saying like you're liable for what what happens on your online store page, but Amazon doesn't have that like second order of like Messi nece around it that twitter and facebook to with two thirty, I. Mean, it gets invoked a lot for marketplace's, but it's way messier. Well, I just wanted to like this question at counterfeits question about ranking the store like they are even more free than any twitter is to to sort tweets algorithm. Algorithm clear to modern like it just their store. Do you think that they're like that Algorithm transparency? Your wire things ranked. Did you catch a sense that that's where the regulation is GonNa go. So much of the conversation around Amazon really felt like it was individuals sellers being wronged for reasons of Amazon being unresponsive or stealing. It's data. So I don't know it didn't. It didn't seem like a really big focus of the hearing, but it is a huge deal. Yeah. The, digital marketplace frame of this, which is where we have talked to. Cellini. That's where he's going right like facebook and Google very digital. They have like they don't do physical goods. Really. Apple is the APP store. It's all digital goods. Amazon is the one where it's. Front to a lot of physical things, and that is the only place where I can see this regulation needing to make some sort of like major meaningful distinction in I. Didn't see it in the hearing, but I was curious of you caught a glimmer of it. I'm not positive that they have to make a huge distinction there like depending on what they come up with because. So much of this is about their companies and whatever product they produced. The issue is more or less whether or not they're being surveilled and unfairly by targeted and crushed by that data surveillance. All right. We have gone for forty minutes. We should take a quick break. I said I wasn't going to go by company and it happens. So we should come back and talk with facebook Ango. We'll be right back. This is advertiser content.

These are really difficult crazy stressful times, and if you're trying to sort of cope, it could be helpful to find something that gets beyond like doom scrolling and like obsessive worried. But digs into what is really going on underneath the surface, and that's what the weeds is all about I. Matthew Yglesias. Weeds podcast here on the box meeting podcast network. This is podcast for people who really want to understand the policy debates and policy issues that shaping our world.

You could download the weeds on apple spotify or wherever else you get your podcasts. Tracy. When it comes to facebook I turn to you. FACEBOOK is patience consumer of startups as what we've learned. Yeah. But you said something to me yesterday was interesting, which is everyone else's problems are forward looking and it feels like facebook's problems are actually in the past break for people explain what you mean. Yeah. So when Congress is looking at any trust with respect to these four companies for three of them, it's It's sort of about the marketplaces that their operating right now with facebook, the question is much more about should we have allowed it to buy serum? Should we have allowed it to buy WHATSAPP and most of the antitrust conversation that was around facebook yesterday was all about that. What did Mark Zuckerberg know about Instagram, and when did he know it? We wrote a story based on some documents that the house released yesterday. In which facebook has clearly identified instagram as a competitor. In at least some ways and wants to go after it and knock it off the table, and so that's kind of where the focuses their facebook and Burke did get a lot of other questions yesterday, but it tended to be much more about content moderation and things that don't have a lot to do with antitrust. So there was weird section where they asked the face. Face Research APP in the novel, Vpn? Any kind of got lost well, explain what happened and I'm curious reactions. Yeah. So facebook has a bunch of nifty tech tools to figure out what's trending which APPs or the kids using, and so that can essentially have an early warning system if it needs to consider acquiring something or more likely in these days, go out clone it. and. So Zuckerberg was asked about the way that the company uses these systems and if they are anti competitive I, think you know traditional antitrust law probably would not say copying an APP feature is anti competitive, but could lobby written in the future about it shirt I. Think the one that caught me was I mean, this is what I'm. McKenna's points from earlier is like one of the themes here is, are you so dominant that you can collect data that's unfair and then use that to crush or killer competitors, and definitely bought the Inaba VPN to do it. That's true. Now, when I've asked executives at facebook about this, what they'll say is they don't get surprised anymore. When you have three point, one billion people using your apps around the world. You know what links they're sharing, you know what they're talking about. And so you're not going to need some kind of specialized tool to know that WHATSAPP is really taking off. Right. So they would argue that, yes, these tools were useful to them, but you know at their scale, they know what's popular now, which doesn't really seem like addresses, the problem is reached. The fact that we're so big that we're all knowing is maybe not the defense that they sometimes presented as so here's what I didn't get. I thought, Zuckerberg I want to the instagram. What's about who's issues, but on the facebook research front, the data front, they him about this APP facebook research, which you were giving to teens. They were deploying with an enterprise certificate that story broke apple revoke the certificate, and all of facebook's internal APPs went dark, and this is a scandal story after story about it, they went on for two days. So I can I, don't recall that APP? Just how he you know, he remembers the day that all facebook's internal APPS went down and people couldn't go to the cafeteria. I would agree I found that answer. Extremely, ed? Persuasive. that. Do you think that was like actually strategic for him to be like, I, don't know and then come back later and correct the record I do remember when that happened I. Mean. I really don't know I mean also you know during a six hour hearing, it's also possible that you just you get flustered or you miss here something or or something because. Yeah. As as you say, I'm sure he remembers the day that apple turned off their internal APPS I mean. Honestly. Seems like an opportunity to talk about apple's market power, and the fact that you know a day of work canceled at facebook because apple got mad. But I think most of the CEO's didn't go into yesterday a wanted to pick fights with each other. It was kind of sad that they didn't. I was Kinda hoping that Tim Cook take a shot at soccer burger. Point that the other two APP platforms I was expecting it. It was there. It was. There was all there. So cellini ended and he ended the whole meeting with closing statement. He said, some of these companies didn't get broken out. They all need to get regulated in the off too much power that some of them I. don't these breaking up apple. What sort of break. Right like. The division get sent into the corner thing about what it's done. Right. Does should spin out the finder team I've always wanted to. A clean is always that they want to. They want the APP store to be separate from the IPHONE. Basically, that's the thing I always hear. Can't break I. Think you can write some strong regulations but not playing you're on store, right. But like Elizabeth Warren's point was it's cleaner if it's two companies, but it's still a gigantic remedy that I don't think there's a lot of like like consumer or public opinion is going to walk into an Apple Cup I think you'll radio at marketplace. It seems very clear that we says some of them she broken up he is talking about facebook. I have a twenty percent conference level. He might be talking with Google and Youtube as well. But if he's going to say some of the need to get broken up like it's facebook, did you hear anything yesterday that supported that conclusion or Saudi stocks I? MEAN HE I don't remember which Republican it was, but he was like the Obama FTC looked at this and they said it was minding love. Obama. Right. Like. Why would we go back in time to relook at I? Mean, there is a belief and I mean. Somebody who thinks there could be a lot of benefit in instagram and WHATSAPP being different companies from facebook. And the reason you ask. So many questions about that acquisition as you're making the case that it never should have been approved in the first place, and so now you need to remedy it. So that was actually like the entire thrust of the argument against facebook yesterday. I think, you could probably make just as good a case that Amazon after spin out aws, but lawmakers chose not to make that case. Yeah. I think that also gets into. Politics of the acquisition of the time. To his credit is like nobody knew instagram would actually be a success like we made it a success. It didn't happen by itself. I, don't know if the lawmakers. By award, these guys said, but I don't know that he actually made that case very persuasively. and. Who knows I mean? That's like anything could have happened. Right? Cram could've stayed independent and rapidly grown and overtaken facebook like that's something that could have happened. It could have kind settled into a middle zone like snapchat or twitter seems more likely to me although I think probably would have been bigger than those two but. You're never going to know I mean it is true that facebook gave Mike and Kevin it instagram enormous resources. A lot of the reasons why Mike and Kevin sold was because running tiny startup that's blowing up is absolutely exhausting Mike. Krieger. was dragging his laptop all around San. Francisco. Because the servers were melting at all times of the day whenever Justin Bieber. Posted like the site stopped working and they really we need help. Finding a person who can quickly fix this? So we don't have to like that is the reason that they were entertaining these offers and wanted to sell it. So that is also thing that happened. Do you think that that same kind of argument or approach can apply to what's up? What's up basically did not come up yesterday and all the focus on Instagram, but that's the other one, right? Yeah, and we know weirdly a lot less about that acquisition I. Think it's because people in America just have so much less love for what's APP generally. That, it's never seemed as important. What happened to WHATSAPP as what happens to instagram even though WHATSAPP, is used, you know way more, it probably has way more engagement even than instagram does so I don't know why that didn't come up as often. We know there was a competitive bidding war for that as well. Goule. Wanted it as well. You know Mark Zuckerberg made them an offer, they can't refuse. Do you think everyday Google's we should've spent more money on what's whatsapp like this could have been solved. Should have, but Google has been placed under an ancient curse that prevents them from ever making the right decision about any social product. So it was doomed never to happen. It's fun looking through the documents and watching them casually say they should buy facebook dot com. Yeah, that. Point. That is how they talk like the window into these executives just casually being like we should just this thing or maybe not, or we should just copied ourselves and kill it before it gets any traction like it's repeated over and over again last facebook question. This one is like harder to parse because I. There's a chance, it's October is just joking around but. But. He's in many of these emails. He's like the thing about startups, as you can always buy them, which I think the committee thinks is a smoking gun, right? Like facebook's entire plan is to buy the competition to get the data from wherever they get it to say, oh, man, this apps popping, we just buy it and kill it before it competes with us. I. Think he actually said at one point. That's a joke. Yes, he did and I believe that you know it was two thousand, twelve, right? He was probably still in his mid twenties. At that point, the company was a lot smaller like people were joking around like there's more loose talk when companies are younger and I do think. It was it was part of that. I think the more interesting question becomes. Let's say facebook is telling the truth about everything. Let's say they thought it was going to be a successful acquisition, but they never knew it was gonna big as it became today and they invested in it and it got super big. Okay. Well, now, it's as big as it is. Should they be allowed to keep? Keep it or should they be forced to spend it out and if you're GONNA force them to spin it out. What's the argument that you'RE GONNA. Make about why one question that I have a lot is clearly the referral they're gonNa make, and it seems like if you don't have some other reason, we've heard hints that there's some other reason, the FTC scrutinize this that will eventually be revealed. But what you're saying is the antitrust standard at the time, the Consumer Hartman stand, which is still our standard. Says, you have to prove prices will go up both products for free. You're screwed. Right? There's nothing to review because you're not gonNA prove prove that free products are gonNA get more expensive. I think it's pretty unfair if you change the standard and you go back in time and say you missed that standard. So I think there has to be something else there. Well, what was the standard by which at and T. was broken up? Right? Like presumably at and T. didn't used to be that big, and then it just got really big and then they broke it up at least. That's the thumbnail understanding I have of that break-up. Well, yeah. But then reformed itself. Right. But because of lax antitrust regulation, right? Like it wasn't a naturally occurring phenomenon that all those APPS got back to the other or was that just sort of like inattention to capitalism It's like in the seventies and eighties. This is Tim moves book the cursive bigness in the seventies and eighties Robert Bork I can't talk about Robert on this podcast. Are we doing this right now. Robert was very influential judge Appellate Judge Federal Appellate? Judge. And basically moved the antitrust law to the consumer harm standard as part of a movement called and economics. A whole thing Robert. Bork. Mostly famous because he was not appointed. He was nominated Supreme Court by Reagan but they leaked video tape rental history, and then he didn't get nominated and that is where the expression getting bork's comes from. This is all true Netflix's still has to abide by videotape data privacy act is a whole. This is all true when facebook and Netflix had some partners, Nansen? Partnership. To. Automatically share your net flicks, watch history to facebook. They're like pending the change of this law which we are working on Robert Bork. He haunts us all. I'm sorry, I can't believe this much. Yeah I. think that's just like the law changed in the in the seventies and eighties, the standard change. The conversation right now is a very much about changing it back months and months ago, pre pandemic, we had an economist from I. Think it was Nyu Thomas Philippon came on the show, and he was like look you have this natural ab test going on in the world where the European Union when it formed was like, how do we get an economy like America's? So, we'll just take their competition policies pretty good, and at the same time we changed consumer harm standard. So everything you're seeing the EU is basically our old competition antitrust standard in. You can see how active they are in everything. Here's a new consumer welfare standard. Whether you believe, this is actually a functional Ab test given. The state of both governments is up for debate, but that was his point I thought. It was spare can say.
U.S. Is About to Unveil the Ugliest GDP Report Ever Recorded
"Today on the show GDP GDP stands for gross domestic product and it's basically a sum total of all of the goods and services that the US economy produces. It's often considered to be the measure of economic growth. Yep. GDP includes all the cars, an air conditioners in shoes and haircuts Uber Rides, and fish tacos and pedicures that the country is producing and buying. And so atypical GDP growth number is like two percent a year or maybe a really great year three percent. It's like soccer scores they never it never gets very. Stay pretty low and that's because the US economy is enormous. So even when a lot of things change the GDP needle doesn't budge very much at least it didn't used to. That's right. The GDP numbers came out today and for the months of April May and June that's the second quarter. The US economy grew at an annualized rate of negative thirty two point nine percent that is today's indicator negative thirty, two, point nine percent and I have to see if I saw this number I was like our economy shrank by thirty three percents I mean that is a third of our entire economy, right? I mean that can only happen a few times. It was really scary. So I called up Justin Wolfer as he is a professor of economics and public policy at the University of Michigan. And I was like wait a minute is the US economy like one third smaller? Did we just lose a third of the economy and so did we lose their economy? In. Okay. Okay. It turns out the way that Americans report the GDP. is a little more confusing than you might realize. What actually happened is in the second quarter, we produced nine and a half percent less than we did in the first quarter. You might think we should report that as a decline in GDP of nine and a half percent. Yes. What we do instead is we say if we continued to plummet at that right for an entire year. At the end of the year, how much lower would GDP? That's what thirty two point nine percents. it says if the economy kept declining at a right of nine and a half sin quarter after quarter after quarter after quarter four quarters later, a level of output would be good. Two point nine percent lists now that's unrealistic. This was the worst quarter. Probably. In American history. So. Yeah. Let's say you do not try to extrapolate for the whole year. Then what you're looking at is that in April May and June the economy shrank by about nine and a half percent from the first three months of the year, which is way better than an economy that shrink at thirty, two point nine percent. But. That number still makes April May and June. The worst three months in the history of the US economy.

Dr Kate Welcome to the broken being pot. Adding more LADES, you're young man, you're only forty-three. There's a lot more accolades you can add to your resume over the. Perfect job. A Mike my goal at the end of the day to help kids feel better. That's beautiful. Goal a beautiful purpose and I can't wait to dig into that in today's podcast and I wanna get into a little bit of origin story. How did you get clear and where did all the puzzle pieces aligned himself that that is your goal. You know. I think the universe was calling me. To do this. The first reason why I got into, it was for my own health up as a kid, I had pretty severe anxiety. SPENT, most of my adolescent teenage years in mix of anxiety and depression yo and. My nervous system was upside down and I couldn't really understand why I knew that I was different. I knew I experienced the world differently, but I really had no clue why you know like who would have thought that eating fast food everyday. All Day will be an issue for for your nervous system going bonkers is that what was going on? Were you eating fast food and kind of go? How is the standard American new way of life I mean college like that's what you do. Right Even I remember actually Loma Linda is a vegetarian institution. Why it's famous for being one of the hospital in the Blue Zone. The seventh day adventists. Yeah. But when I got accepted there, one of the thoughts that I had is like Oh my God. What am I gonNA do without my burgers. And that was the mindset I had going into training because I didn't know any better and what actually got me to start looking outside was during my training. I kept kept coming across these cases and I remember one very, very vividly. Twelve year. Old Guy. Severe Severe Colitis. Came in with toxic, Mega Colin were his colon had dilated to about ten centimeters, which is huge, and we did around the steroids. We did some medications for him. He got better when home. Two weeks later, I was still on service. Worse off than before and Beato, our team started the discussion and we brought in all the specialists and basically the end of the discussion was well, he's failing medications. We just need to cut out his colon literally was like he failed medications. So the next option is we just cut out this twelve year olds a lot inflammation. Something's going on. Let's just cut the thing out. because. That is the next standard of care, right. I had a lot of these kinds of scenarios where kids would show up like I remember another guy who plays soccer. He scraped his knee niece bowl up and then thirty six hours later, he was dead. You know and they were just like well, sometimes staff does unlike I've scraped my knee, I haven't died like, what was it about his system that caused him to fall apart and it was this recurring question of like these things don't add up two plus two equal in this scenario and the institution, and they're really smart people alone Linda, don't get me wrong. But the pediatric conventional training was like no two plus two equals farm like it doesn't look this way. So as it is in most hospitals and worst Western approach. Places. Because that's what people are trained in. But you were asking a different question. You're like, okay. This doesn't make sense what's really going on. Exactly. Yeah, and that is what ultimately led me to start taking courses. So I, I went to one holistic kind of course, and it was a dinky little course, but I was like, oh. My God I, you know I have found my people, the light bulbs went off and you started connecting dots. And then from there I went and did a bunch of training with Institute of Functional Medicine and the trading with the University of Arizona, and in the midst of that, I started realizing the pieces that were affecting me so like. I did the elimination diet and started feeling better and then I found myself to have MTA. And I think my initial homocysteine was sixteen when I first tested it, I'm like Jesus. So I started injecting myself with B twelve and you know I was my own best Guinea pig. And in the midst of getting interested, what also happened is Loma Linda's in didn't have anyone that was getting interested in this stuff. They're like, Hey, you wanNA, start a holistic medicine clinic and. Like. Two years of my training and there I was like all of the sudden getting handed these patients you know and I was the expert even though I basically didn't know that much. But through the process of learning and I was really really privileged to be put in a place where you know fifty year olds, I was a pediatrician fifth year olds with Severe Lupus. Land in my doorstep helped me I'm like. I don't know anything about Lupus. So let me learn so I. I spent all this time. Just researching in learning. You know any person that I could find with any material they had on the Web I was reading books listening to the videos. And I was just consuming all of this information in the midst of that. Also learning from my patients,

But of course, it began with our mutual friend and also popular PODCAST Gas Josh. Wait, skin who is known you for a very long time. Indeed, he has a quote in fact that is Impreza praise of your book chess for success and it goes as follows Maurice Ashley. Has Been like a brother to me since I was twelve years old I know the man I know the competitor I know the artist no, the teacher there's a lot of train for us to cover a lot of Nixon crannies to explore but I thought we would begin with Maurice the Jamaican and I was hoping you could describe for us your beginnings and we could start with the with the genesis while yes I was born in Jamaica. Island. Not the area of Quaid's and I grew up there. I was there until I was twelve years old before I came to this country. But probably, the most significantly got happened for me in. Jamaica. Was the fact that my mother left Jamaica to come to the United. States, when I was two years old, my brother was ten. My sister was seven months old and. Opportunity to come to the US, she couldn't bring all of us at the same time. Cheech only bring herself. And her leaving was really quite an event in our lives. My father wasn't with us but living with us at the time. So we grew with our grandmother. and My mother would send. down. Stuff supplies to Jamaica Whether v Foodstuffs Flour and rice she sent him in a barrel and she said, well, she said notebooks in armor sending like a softball and a glove, and of course Jamaica. Nobody played softball baseball nothing. So I threw the glove to the site, not knowing what to do with it and use the softball as a soccer ball. Got Pretty warned down already quickly a really turn into a softball very quickly to that. But. We just being raised by my grandmother she was a teacher by training. And so she would teach us so much as young people. So we were really well prepared educationally because of my grandmother and she was sixty four years old at the time of my mother left the imagined a sixty, four year old having had seven children for own. Now suddenly taking on the care of her daughter's children at that age when thinking about maybe slowing down and retiring enjoying herself. But for the next year, she took care of us and I was really a hugely significant part of growing up living there. Until finally my mother got the resources in the paperwork through green and finally bring us to the United States.
AP Switches to Sony
"This is digital story podcast number, seven, forty, nine July, twenty, eighth, two, thousand and twenty today's theme is. Resting on your laurels can hurt you. AP Switches to Sony. I'm Derek Story. Prior to the murless revolution, cannon had the camera industry pinned to the Mat. I remember attending an invite only precedent at. Back in the day and marveling at their confidence and swagger, and for good reason, they were dominant. But soon after serious tiger FY began to evolve away from the DS or and cannon was slow to innovate. In just last week, the Associated Press announced they were switching to Sony for all their photography and video work. That's Today's top story on the TV S. photography podcast. Change has been in the air for quite some time and I. Just you know you think back on things you know little stories that you read here things that you hear there and pretty soon they start to add up to something. Big and something big has definitely happened with the Associated Press deciding to switch from cannon which they were using primarily of for their work to Sony for everything for photography and video the whole Enchilada. Now those little things I was talking about four example. I remember reading a story a few months ago. About it was a hearing the government hearing and DSL. Ours were deemed too noisy to shoot during the proceedings, so the DSL are photographers were asked to do not shoot except at specific times, so they were basically controlled when they could take a picture. On the other hand, the murless shooter. Room time and it was a Sony shooter ironically. was able to shoot at will, because he was able to set his camera so that it made no noise whatsoever and I. Remember Thinking about that story at the time, I'm going. Wow, look out for this right. If you're in the world of journalism, look out for this and sure enough Not that long after we get this big announcement now many of us. US Are Mere Lewis shooters. We can imagine the benefits of these cameras over DSL. Lars during the daily grind of reporting I mean don't have to be a rocket scientist to figure this out. murless cameras are lighter. They're more agile and they are definitely quieter as I just talked about so if you had to carry a bank all day every day, would you choose? Realistically, what would you choose? At the same time while you know, we're sort of figuring out that we value our backs in our shelters and our necks, Sony continued to add necessary pieces to complete the professional photographer puzzle. They launched their professional service which by the way associated. Press has expressed great confidence in Sony's ability to deliver professional services onsite during major events, so they launched that and they got it going in. They did it well enough to get the. The confidence of the Associated Press they put long white aperture telephoto lenses in the roadmap, and they carefully integrated stills and video into the same camera system, and this becomes really one of the important aspects of a peace decision to make the switch and I have some quotes for you coming up here in just a minute about a week ago, they officially announced a AP did that. They're switching to the Sony Alpha system. The quote with hundreds of staff photographers and videographers around the world and thousands of freelancers who contribute the is a massive entrusted source that covers both the expectant and unexpected, and they're going to do that with Sony cameras so when I have here I, did some research about the discussion you know basically most of the quotes are from a director of photography, also the deputy managing editor, so David is the director of Photography and Darryl is the deputy managing editor and from two different places. We're going to start out with some comments that were captured by the director of photography. On an article in DP. Review DP review, and I have the link to that article in the show notes. The articles titled were confident that they can deliver. We talk with a piece director of photography about the switch to Sony the link is in the show notes there. Here's a few of the. Comment on them and again. This is the director of photography. We like the idea of having the color quality in the image quality, being close to the same between stills and video equipment, so if a still soccer for help out a video colleague with a little filming or B roll. It would fit in the at it in. If we were to pull a grab frame from a four K. video camera, it would have the same basic feel as a photograph from stills camera.
"soccer" Discussed on Loud Americans Discussing Soccer
"Times but like I break my foot and having broken over my foot. Have it a broken? Anything like sucks like the of my nuts. Like I I'll puke puke all the time. So have you ever Stub your toe? Got An actual kicking the shit out of a concrete ball. Ninety two hundred pounds probably more than that honestly Martin now. They said that I'd rather get kicked in the nuts. And even just stub my toe. I'd I'd get kicked in the nuts three times before I'd kick that concrete soccer ball sometimes like backers when I stand up. I'd rather get kicked in the nuts and feel that pain get kicked in the nuts every single morning for the rest of my life. If I didn't have to deal with back pain again especially once with kick just one swift kick to the nats every single morning and then deal with back pain. I do that every single day of my life.

You're and look I would be totally fine with the front three of Marcus Marchisio and Greenwood do only fucking fucking delusional.

"Yeah Oh like this apprentice episode with Paulie and Christopher. Yeah exactly but I remember. I went my wife's grandfather owned a blueberry farm in Pomona it which is way South Jersey. Oh yeah and all the pickup trucks pie. NEOM Brown thousand ninety. Don't say that that's offensive. I'm like I didn't know but uh ah I forgot how you a soccer star majority vic. Look I like the fact that we have a system but you know it seems like the treating the national team as a as a professional club And I'm not sure if that's always the right idea like you look at the rest of the world. The you know the national team either. Either you have a system like Spain has had or you come in the election. Hata we just wait. You Know Lake Francis Planning counterattacking soccer. You know you're not going to be able to get a German arriving Or German or Spanish system. I clearly what we're trying to do here. I don't know if it works. I just we make it to the World Cup because we need that balance although nobody nobody was linked guitar. Also that's a whole. I mean they got like slave labor going on in Qatar back in that John Oliver Special. From what like four years ago now when he talked about that that which is absolutely. I mean John Oliver's my favorite but like that special I still watch constantly when you were talking about the Brazil and how awful that whole was and everything like that but I mean it's kind ended bin Laden not everyone talking about how horrible Qataris people can't leave. They got these visas taken away. It's a really bad situation over there and I guess they're making these domes because it gets up to one hundred twenty degrees there during the summer. It's going to be during the winter. Now Right. They changed it. Yeah so it's GonNa be like the most impressed world cups is like the seventies Jesus well Christian I feel route. I didn't ask you. What's your thoughts on the currency the US soccer? I'm sorry the state of US soccer. I'm more concerned. Based on a couple of people that we interviewed like we had Sei Soccer. I was alarmed up on our show. Who covered the US national team trump? Plenty years and I kind of base. My you know. my concerns off of how these people who come in You know US aqua for a long time and people are a little nervous. I think they're more. I'm more worried about I. Think the at the senior level. I think we'll be fine. I think I think Berhalter can get US woke up. But when you realize that now there's a lot of vacant use Co The two positions. I if that next cycle that I think we're in. We're having a bit of an issue now for the four Foundation for the future so Twain Twenty Six. I don't know exactly who's going to be part of that. Why what is that? You could end up with a lost generation. Because of that you know you could enter bill. Yeah you know you have these issue you of like the the. US Soccer wants everyone to move to Chicago All used coaches at basically everyone they wanna have of that. That mean hub which you so you understand that but the country is so big and maybe it may not be beneficiary. You may not be able to get. Chicago can't play soccer Around yeah so you may exactly were. You won't be able to attract the best coaches For our youth national teams. So that that's where I'm at right now just like worried about what the future will look like because because it doesn't look like there's going to be consistency that we sort of that. We really need to keep making into every walk up. What do you think about the argument that more players should be abroad? Really we have tons in the Bundesliga and stuff like that like people were like. Oh well we gotta make MLS strong. It's like people pulling at two ends of Lake Straw are at a rope. You know what I mean. We were just in Germany everywhere Low and he's a big from opponent. He's like I did. I went to Hanover and just spent my entire career. We played one club and he said the Bundesliga has a huge opportunity. And if American kids have the opportunity to go that they definitely should so I don't think you I don't think any answers correct. I mean I had you. I think my answers correct I would I would say you WANNA litter American kids all all over the world crispy. Listrik is the first first American. I know of that when you tell someone their American for the first time you like what you know. They're shocked because as in how good he is. You know. Pass the Americans. We sort of had to make excuses for Landon Donovan. Oh he would be great if he played. You know what I mean but nobody's building. Mls I think think if the better the higher the level the kid is either they come back to molest other great where they stay out in Europe and continue to sort of propel forward the projection or the idea the perception I I should say of an American player and I think that's almost more important. You don't build sort of that. The value of the American players continue to build the quality and the more and more sort of American players are playing playing Champions League and stuff like that did get beat for the for the World Cup for the national team. Yeah I agree. That was the all right. All right all right like we do have a players that came from MLS academies that made it to the men's national team yet like Paxton Palmdale all right so actually that there are they are mls Kademi. That are putting out real talent that have interest from Europe. Of course if you had the opportunity to go ought to Europe or the for the individual player I think that's great but with your question about building mls. I don't know if that I find that to be a priority no right because because we're gonNA build the MLS by bringing in not only having great players in the academy and then playing on almost I teams but does laptops coming over here right the Wayne. Rooney's leased even though Quote Unquote retirement leaks. But not only are we getting those high quality players but we're getting like young South Americans out playing on these teams so that is also going going to help us build. MLS and it doesn't necessarily the American player. The young America doesn't necessarily have to be responsible for building the League or yeah well thank you. That was so well thought out. That was very great. Thank you guys so much. I mean one of us is smart now. You both have been fantastic Make sure to follow on At the cool against wrecks on twitter soccer soccer cool against the worst at soccer hooligans on twitter and instagram graduate on I tunes spotify Ice Stitcher. I'm assuming oh anywhere. Got podcast. Go to them. They are the absolute best. There's a reason the guys are the best in the industry. My last question before we finish is what does it mean to be goalie. I WanNa know what what is the glorious like I need to know for the fans tell me am I am. I really like what's up because you asked the question. Thank you flip to me. I think has had a lot of definitions over the years but for us. It's someone who we defend American soccer. We we sort of defend what we think is riot You know we were. It's sort of like I don't know I wanNA use the term brave but it's you know be proud of who you are and say what needs to be said either. I hold that very the year two. We're both You know inner city Latino right be grew That's how we even that word being associated with that show. Joke was totally ironic. Because we're we're both Comedians Matt sliding anybody who weren't like we're not dogs but I think what the cool thing is that it's made people be more Not just be so defensive about American soccer almost be offensive and be like you. You know what this is. This is who we are this represent. We're trying to build this not only make the sport relevant amongst all the other sports right a lot of people who enjoy soccer in the. US are like they keep it to themselves. They have to be closeted soccer fans because they can't reveal it to their coworkers or their friends and stuff like that. And we've made made it a little bit more like you know what there's nothing to be ashamed of. And if I the Europeans make fun of us for long soccer whatever week clapback we we yell at that. We no longer going to be like. Oh you're right guys we're here now. Listen to your mate. We're going to go have ourselves donnybrook. I don't know what they do over there.

"Helping hoping for us. Owning at least tickets means like we're putting our money into the league as well like we. We care about Eric in soccer. What exactly brought you guys together? Make this podcast. We guys like hitting doing stand together and like stuff like daily. What was kind of like inspiration for this year while we were doing? Stand up for years. We've both been doing standard for about eleven years and Probably we knew we each had individual podcasts and then but we would meet on the scene doing shows and stuff but then we realized we both like soccer fee funds stuff like that and then when we started Alexis was talking about like you WanNa do soccer related projects like videos and stuff. I I was working on a sketch show sort of in this group of like I just want to make a bunch of stuff And we were all right. Let's do something soccer related than we made some videos And then we started the podcast and we missed a week since I A now. TV show so it's like say husband the whole Fubo TV. I mean also. How's it being famous? That's like kind of sick right like that's kind of cool like my whole life My Ego my my life up to my ego. I think it's going to. Ah Now. I mean this has been you know when we started the podcast. You know as as Comedians the reason we have individual podcast. The reason why we wanted to start this podcast because you spent a Lotta time during the day not really doing much for the most part. I'm sort of waiting for nights to perform in and you want to be productive but you WanNa do something you love and you WanNa put that content canal and hope that enough people see that they'll come see you perform stand up so we looked at this as a way to maybe cultivate a bit of a of a audience or fan base And you know once we got to offer Why in our lives like wait? You're stand up comics in American soccer budgets. Do you guys ever WanNa make money. You know like I thought I was going to become a blacksmith neck. You know like it's blowing glass. Who knows it could be anything? Yeah glass must be a nice guy. Yeah that's good. That's the best. I'm an open Mike. I know there's like this whole like what's it called Do you guys get that like people who you say like. Oh I do stand up versus open mic. I heard there's a big debate and like stand up comedy world about You guys feel that so I would say it's a level that you sort of recognized you know. There's a big debate. They're they're people that I know that are famous that are on TV. They're doing open mic throughout the week in New York A sort of prepare material comedies. The one of the few are from the sort of practice in front of the actual people so people see you struggle. Because you're working on it you know. Sometimes doing an open mic will help solve that. But you know once you get to the level we are. You don't get as many opportunities to do. It makes because we're so busy but yeah. Yeah how's that balanced. Oh sorry go ahead. Sorry I'm sorry. Say like an open. micrometres established media. There's no I mean like there's clearly a if somebody's Consistently doing it yet. Maybe not getting booked on a budget shows just yet you already see the. US appear if you are Sacrifices I know how hard it is and you could be doing other things with your time and it's a it's a real gripe nine so There's people that are doing shows. That can sell out theaters that I would not consider comedians. Maybe they're just like really possible or they have like draws because of the big youtube channel or something checkmark. Yeah absolutely seen. I've seen your parents are disappointed in you. You're halfway to be like you'll be inconvenient as every day who believes in you know you've got given up a lot of like relationships and you sacrificed family events and stuff for this thing that you love. So whether you're doing open mic like Christianson instead of you're doing it at a comedy club or at show you run. It doesn't matter if you do if you've done your comics just because you sell tickets that shit. Yeah like I've seen a screech. Do you stand up. I wouldn't really call them a stand up. Comedian just row screeched. Amazing would you. Is there any tips like for me. I would love a tip. I bombed the other day I was like Spiraling onstage and I was like all right. I'm GonNa Start Making Baltimore. The wire jokes was not relevant. Relevant whatsoever Is there any tips you would give to someone on like who's trying to like. Go Up and try and get into comedy. I would say like if you know right away when you grab a microphone or fits for you not for you. There's a lot of ways where I like so Chris and I are different like Christian could possibly sit in a room in right a joke out Anglo Television Begum. It'll be funny. I can't do that. I can't sit in a right. I whatever add or whatever it is that's not me. I need to go have to think of something funny and save on stage and I'll find the funny of onstage Sean. Very different in whatever. It is learning to do the other thing. You're not I mean give yourself opportunity to the thing if you Sort of write your jokes out and go tell them verbatim. Go up there and try not doing matt tried giving yourself like a bullet or it'd be like all. I thought that was funny. I told a friend that and go up there and you could build that world worked at other muscle. Because when you get to the point where you're booking big shows shows where you're doing things you may not have the chance to sit and write everything you're about to say you may need that other muscle. I think that's really important. I'm working really hard now. Ten in years in my career. I'm writing and it's very difficult because I didn't do it at the beginning. Seventy mine like kind of teaching yourself. Now Okay Yeah I would say the EH especially early on to not be these kind of the tips I got from people have been doing a long time is to not be not to judge yourself so harshly especially at open mic. Like don't bombing is fine. Don't worry about what people are sort of connecting to or if they're laughing vein necessarily like your do the same jokes for three months. If you have like. Don't be don't think that you have to do things a certain way. That's 'cause no there's no oh advice that I can't give you any advice that will lead you. You'll find your own because you'll never be able to mind because nightingale. Yeah I was GONNA end up doing and doing soccer podcast and then you have was not in the plans when I start making comedy careers more relevant like that was definitely definitely not the plan. So yeah just keep the law. The best advice is to keep doing it. There's no because it'll it'll just make more sense of the long gone and we're proof that if you do something you'd think is funny doesn't matter if you think anyway you can get spending other eventually. Yes we we are proof of sure we had to put a everyone's if for half years permissible but eventually you'll find a group of people in I think it was. I forgot who said it to I can't remember Joan rivers if all you ever do is make one percent of the audience love you want percents population. You'll feel theaters for the rest of your life. You know so yeah all you have to do is find your group of people that's why it takes so long to be a great comic as you have to sort of worm your way through a lot of body insists the five that really appreciate you are. Eventually that'll blow. I love it becomes a huge audience through how to Joan rivers quote. Wow I'm just I am taken aback this whole sidetracked podcasts mostly for me. I know we've got soccer. Yeah but I really appreciate you guys answering these questions. So in terms of the top five league we obviously call cover a lot of premier league and stuff like that. So we've been covering this whole year big arsenal fan obviously The Premier League raise. What have you made of this whole like you know the past? Couple of years the premier league's been very competitive all the other leagues have kind of had their one winner. You ventas the Barcelona the buyer Munich. CBS G obviously Now Liverpool's kind of leg ran away with it. Do you find this title race to be over already. I it's clearly over. I mean but I to me. Premier League is always. He's always hinges on the Christmas season. You know they play so many games during that part where no one else does so. There's always a way we could change in the second half I thought as an arsenal little family had a chance to catch lester during that time period a few years ago. Unless please don't bring that up please hang on L. Welbeck's right off the top of the forehead. I thought we had that Shit. Aw but to me. It's like it's really hard to sort of claim that there's winning whatever your Chelsea ran away with it You know city running away with it now Liverpool running away with it I i. I can't imagine they're not GonNa win. The League seems like they put all their eggs in that basket. Woody Champions League so I just hope arsenal finishes in the top four. I want to get back to champion. I just hope Everton doesn't get relegated. Let's go my God. I was about to say I mean Carlo enchiladas out there men luxury both both these teams. You're talking about our needing of managers gers right now Do you guys see them going any these clubs like there's Maximilian Luxury Chilanga. Here's another one Well I guess Gino Baccino. Well he's not going to arsenal but like back. He's already said he had a quote the other day not going on your because of Barcelona and he's not or he's not going to go to Barcelona. Because that's on your sorry sorry. And then Same with like Tottenham Arsenal. But like do you. Could you see him going man united only. I don't know how he got a job. But what around Madrid Catina I think actually is one of the room guys arsenal now. The guy that was supposed to get hired by in West. CFC IS UH being rumored as an Arsenal van Bronckhorst. Yeah Giovanni Braam van Bronckhorst I just want arsenal to get someone. I would love for them to keep Bloomberg until next season. Ended up at Perpetuate what we already have that it is easy to get him out of his rumors. Gut wants out of the city so I I'm happy with as far as Everton D- and they have such good players that there's no excuse for the team to be that bad. I mean I don't know what manager they're going to have a tough time reeling in a top level manager manager because who wants to coach there right. It just doesn't have the cachet of some of these other clubs But if they can get initially would be unbelievable right Ah They can make under the day though. It's still fairly people want to coach in the primarily. So you might want you might get someone who was like a big coach of Boondocks League or big coach coach. Leon who wants to make the lead to two primarily so I mean I I forget the guy's name but who's the dude that's at a much lower back Right now they're giving crushing. It will just lead lead. Yeah wants to make the leap. He goes to Abington. I don't know but road comb out with a better job. I mean they have the alleged. Theo Walcott anyway. I I love the that's my name and my cat is Theodore and say oh because you walkout like no but like they just happened to you. Know it's I know I feel like I'd be amiss if I didn't bring up the current. US Soccer Situation. What have you made of Greg's tenure? You're right now in the current state of the US. Men's national team feel feeling a little better or you guys are you guys doing you know I mean I waxed and waned depending on you know. I'll sort of how I feel that day. Wind Gregg Berhalter from Jersey. So Shouts Greg Jersey. Where we not call Taylor? I am from himself. Grew up in South Jersey and Millville grew up in bumble Cumberland County. So it's totally. Find Your Violence Cumberland County. When did we don it? It is my father's a total redneck. Uncle Slob and uncle hen bird to go to the club it is.

What what can we do to help? I see a lot of this like Taylor. Ham Talk and whatnot. What's what's up with this Wa wa hate? We all know it's daily hand while was trash unless it's to come rules man. Are you a hoagie hero. Zero what you guys call it. I'm cool with sub. I'm cool with Hoagy but hero is the official term. Guys are obviously big pizza guys. I don't really have you. You know any good pizza here in New England you have spy and you're in Brooklyn Right. That's where like the mainstay of the show is. Yeah Yeah Yeah Okay do you have.

You've got Santa Appeals over by the airport you got AIDS REGGIA which is in the north side. That's it's really famous superbeets in unfortunately guys also like to eat Greek pizza which is it's the Wa wa of pizzas Come on man like you guys probably like sheets come come on. I can't do this is it. Is it just because it has the stereotype being gassed Asian food. I don't get it man staple is really confusing for us as Dino's because y was kind of what we call plus the plus. Is You go. There is a nation sandwiches winter. The bus game. All right well I find I'm GONNA move on because like I can't. I'm not going to dwell on this because it's going to hurt my heart but I wanNA talk some soccer. Obviously you guys are big. MLS guys you're at the final this year right. Yeah I was. That was that whole experience. It was incredible Seattle Man. I'll that whole is. It felt the entire diner city. was there for the game was really cool. The earthquakes when they scored goals as you physically feel the world shake underneath the real thing it was ever offer Chris Simon Century Lincoln Yeah I think it was. They were more people there than like you know when they attend seahawks games. It was pretty intense and you can clearly see how important commanders are To that city so yeah I mean we that was already our forth. MLS Cup and they've been on the second that they've won that we'd been tagged but it's it's like you know who the Good Luck charm. My obviously so yeah. What do you all been your favorite wondered? You feel as though. Is there a favorite of the ones you've been to. I'd like I would say this is if not number one number one A. It's really hard between this and last year's Atlanta Anna was that tailgate was unbelievable. It felt like a coming out party for soccer in America. Erica Linda Yeah Seattle. It felt like we were in a weird world where soccer has always mattered. You know in America so it's hard to compare the two but I would say the two of those will they still like sort of I get butterflies thinking about both of those cups. My next question's going to be like on our show we talk mostly premier league and world world soccer's We always jokes were big. MLS guys but we're not really nice more of just being sarcastic convince me what is your pitch. MLS has grown immensely. I been trying to watch more games. What is your pitch to say like a lot of our fans are trying to get more into like? Mls what is your head just like. Why should we care more about this compared to like the European top five weeks before local local at the that that would be the first kind of message I mean we talk about We sort of made that conscious choice to or from relief. But I'm saying he's he's innocent clamp. Hey I'm a governor myself one baby so So we we made the conscious choice like you know a lot of people kind of with down American Eric in soccer they put down. MLS If the butt of a joke right where we stand up comedians right so we constantly even amongst peers did not sounds that. Make Fun of the sport but then he just talk about American soccer. You like there's going to be even worse like you're GonNa get but the more we were around a around players around You know the teams and just people who work for the League Lou. People are really trying to make sport relevant in this country and really the Mesler do it is like you know to get people to go see games and the early easy complaint is of equality or whatever but what outside of the top ten teams onto in the permanently. Garbage seems absolutely watson run. I don't want to hear a God damn thing. I'm a big Fan. I don't really know what they're you know. Mascot is still. It's still very confusing. But that's very that's very fair and I liked that you know and you guys like the playoff system system. Compared to the point system at the end of the season the title. I've I've kind of grown to fall in love with the idea of the playoffs because it's undeniably fun whether you think I think it's fair or not or it should just be a single single table whether you like that or not. Doesn't matter revolt it is fun. It is certainly fun and it's just something so late about how insane American soccer is is Tam. There's game and I when I say piggyback on what Christie said is you don't have to pick one you can still like Chelsea Elsie and also like rebel New Yorker or and they did it or whatever you can also like American soccer. You don't have to be one yes you could stop saying make you know what I mean. Oh my God I love that. I'm a Philadelphia Union fan by default. I was actually born in Chester. Pennsylvania at Cooper Cooper Hospital. It's a big Jimmy. Kurt van as Ginger. Love Me Jimmy Curtains so he's actually We got passes one day. I don't know how we pulled that off. You're actually in the press box. One sometime got to go meet Jimmy Afterwards Bedoya and everyone in the locker room and all the time. I'm just smilingly. This isn't happening the whole time so I I would actually like to ask as of union fan was a kind of a disappointing. It's such a great regular season. How they fell out in the play offs the the Philly fans for the show? I mean look at eight that night game against The rebels was unbelievable right so after they go up against Atlanta you know. They definitely flavor playing at mercedes-benz tough overall but the Philadelphia Union. More like like the the they had good results luscious detail and toews yet. But I'm just so impressed. Compared to last year where like nobody was going to games aims of it was just a really difficult to like. Just connect with the community and you realize like the sons of Ben all the effort that was pulled from from the club to just get more people excited about the team we went to even Fang all the stuff fan. You saw what we were there for the CFC's Philly Games We were doing press stuff too uh-huh and we were on the field looking around the police which jammed the Velika parring gap. You'll go philly. Yeah like yeah sold out stadium Gesture is feels feels like just it feels good is small at about twenty thousand. But that ain't a raucous twenty thousand It's it's The identity is very much via its the same constant belittling anybody man. It's just a brand. We have a brand had it not like people think soccer fans off whatever not build up the unit out now. I loved it very much. The Seniors Villi people. Yeah they Serbia different culture. It's a problem it's so funny because like Philly fans get this hard core like mentality but we feel things I remember when my grandfather we won won the super bowl with the eagles. I'm getting off track. This guy who served in Vietnam. He's never I love you know. Hugs or anything I remember. He called me when we won the Super Bowl. I I never thought I would make it to this point. It was like crying on the phone so we do not like the most like egg people but we do have kind of like hardcore your brand but that's really cool so are you guys Newark FC fans or Red Bull fans local.

"And welcome back to the GSM. See soccer podcast. We just went over the new coaches in the world of soccer Fulham has new coach Claudio Ranieri as you may know from Leicester City, and Santiago Solari has accepted the managerial position for Real Madrid until twenty twenty one. Of course, we know that can change if they if he's not successful this year. They're they're not afraid to make a change. If needed don't matter what the contract says. So we have some interesting news notes around the world of soccer, Jeff, we'll start with a funny one. We'll start with one of the weirdest things that you'll hear in the world of soccer today. So so in the women's Super League, which is a woman soccer league in London or maybe just England. I'm not entirely sure destinations are though it wasn't man. There was a fischel referee going to the game. He forgot his coin. Which what do you think you would do if? Got your forgot your coin for the coin toss the game. I'd probably go asked somebody like in the crowd or maybe like a cameraman. Like, hey, do you have a quarter? I borrow you have a pound you have a euro quid quid. Do you have anything that's a coin, and I can flip and that has a heads or tails marker? No. He went a different way. He change it up. I don't think we'll ever see in a professional sport again. What's that the two cab? He made the two women on either side. Do right, paper scissors. No. He didn't winter in that decided the sides. Wait, he made them rock, paper scissors to see who got the ball. And who got which side? Yeah. Basically choosing sides. Yeah. Isn't that the most ridiculous? And he got suspended for this get suspended for this. I think you should give the man a race just problem solving easier to get a cooling, then do something completely different abide. The rules. Are there for the rules? The there are rules of this game and come on now. All right. So when I was going through college this like, oh, we can't do coin. Okay. Let's play a game tag on the field before the game starts. So when I was going through college, I refereed soccer against make some cash, right? Nice job like kids soccer adults mostly for like the recreation district ever. Oh, yeah. For sure. But the thing is is that. It's an easy job. When you're in college. Right. You can work in the evenings. You make a little you make some good money doing that like twenty five thirty bucks a game. That's twenty five thirty bucks an hour. Pretty good for college kid. So. Sometimes I'd forget my coin. Absolutely. It's not that hard. Okay. I understand. You haven't had a gear. Right. Yes. I understand that. But you know, how easy to find a coin look on the sidewalk or something? So I would always hold. If I did that. I'd always either make them do rock, paper scissors there at a stadium, right? Yes. It will go to go to a vendor and say, hey, do you have any change? Can I borrow cord? I'll give it back to your promises. Sometimes I'd make them do game to start. Gimme some change hotdog, man. So sometimes I direct river scissors. Sometimes I'd hold -solutely. Sometimes I'd hold a hand. I'd hold my hand behind my back and hold a one or two and asked him to guess shut your trap. What what's wrong with that? That's that's stupid. It's rec soccer. Well, K if this okay what if it was the World Cup? No, I wouldn't make them do that..

"And welcome back to the G S M C soccer podcasts, of course, part of the GMC podcast network. We just talked about the Manchester Darby and other action as it pertained to English soccer. So. We have new coaches, we're at an international break right now. So this is kind of a time period. Worse for some adjustments are made were new coaches are some coaches are fires new coaches appointed some interesting news out of Madrid. So they fire we'll pet to be just about two weeks ago. And they're looking for a new coach. But in the meantime, they give Santiago Solari the keys to the car the keys to the Maserati, and who doesn't like a Maserati your Real Madrid. I think that club is compared to something like that. I come on Rodney like a like a sports car Lamborghini. Okay. So he gets his chance t-. He gets his opportunity to go from the second re the team to the first team manager. And since he's been appointed. They have been undefeated. They have scored goals. Well, time came where they. Make choice either hire them on permanently for the rest of the season or go. Elsewhere. What do you think they did? I think they've honestly made the right choice. I mean going on feed it really speaks for itself now. Yeah. And they gave him a contract twenty twenty one which is surprising. So Santiago story has signed a contract. So forty two years old. He is a former former Real Madrid player. So he knows the system he knows the club. Very well. And since he's taken over the team scored goals, we talked about in previous podcast how they were sitting records a Real Madrid for their droughts and go in goal scoring abilities. And you know, we talked about them losing Rinaldo and how that affected the team will since so has taken over. They've scored four goals. Two goals five goals and four goals in their last four games. So you know, when someone like is a foreign member of that club. And they're starting to coach they know this. They know the system they. No, the the pressure. They know that what the what the owner wants. You know, what there is the atmosphere is like you just have a familiarity with that other other coaches really have when they're coming into a new club. And I think that's really taken advantage of me. Like you said they're scoring goals. They're improving on all aspects. They were drowning when it comes to goals and other flooding in goals. So obviously, something's working there in there in six place, which is crazy if you ever there should never be a time whether that will on the table, but they're only four points behind Barcelona Barcelona was defeated by real beddis over the weekend. Four three surprising result. But that result coupled with.

Football fantasy football amongst other things. Lots of different stuff outside the world is supports. But again, if you like what you hear take take a listen to some of our other stuff, give us a chance. So Jeff if you like us here, you'll like us anywhere will they hopefully hopefully, I mean take us a small doses. I mean, listen to us talk for a couple of hours might make you insane. I would say so but still I mean, we'd probably we need the publicity. Yes. So I wanna talk about a little bit. Some other news. We're talking about the neymar in the referee. I wanted to talk about saw Tun. He's open to staying in the MLS. He's open to staying. He says he'll stay LA meets his wishes in his demands. He said there are simple things. He says he has interest in from other clubs in Europe, which I'm sure that he does. He says his priority is playing for the galaxy. They have wishes I wishes, but he's optimistic on the shooting star in the galaxy think he's once he says, I have some wishes and demand which are simple things like money taking out money Eminem's in the bowl or something. Like that are there. That's that's the peanuts though. That's the peanut style. Yeah. I don't think they're actually just plain old yellow taken the yellows. I'm more of a skill guy though, taking the blue skittles out or something like, what do you think is still not real down, and then trying to shoals pack. Yes. So we'll see if he stays I thought that he was a really awesome addition for the club. He scored a couple of memorable goals, including his debut where he brought the galaxy back. He had incredible like forty five yard goal in that game coming off the bench, but should be kit or the galaxy didn't make the playoffs in them last which is really unfortunate because we didn't get to see playoffs a lot. Everybody would have liked to see playoffs. I guess I wonder what? His goal was. I mean their last game this season they lost. Yeah. They lost to be knocked out. So. It didn't go well for them, unfortunately. But I would love to see him. Stay. I think he was a good fit this week in the second division before jumping in the playoffs. The US sell the second vision the United soccer league here in the United States. The final between Louisville city against Phoenix rising Phoenix rising. We'd name by the way. Thanks rising is drug was club. He is part owner of the team. So as diplo the DJ, but Diddy deroga-, he's a player owner. He's forty years old. This is supposedly his last season in professional soccer. He scores a goal in the semi-final game in the Western Conference championship game. He sends Phoenix of the final. So our we'll be checking that out. I game is tomorrow. If you are interested is on ESPN two. I believe eight o'clock eastern time, five o'clock Pacific time. So if you wanna see DA drop a play in the United States, maybe his last game ever, take a look see what you think. So. Moving on. Speaking of the MLS, David Beckham sounds like he may have secured. A stadium deal. And we are waiting to see if that actually will go through. But there is news that a stadium project is closer to happening than it has been before. We know there's been a lot of struggles with him securing the space and everything that comes with the politics and in getting a new stadium down. There is a lot to do. It's not a done deal, but they are negotiating with the city right now. And they found they found a fifty acre public park. So they're negotiating with how to buy that land. So. News there that will be up with an yes, we are currently in the Major League Soccer playoffs. Seattle. Sounders and Portland timbers will face off tonight. Is the second leg this match with Portland up two one on aggregate. So the winner will advance onto the Western Conference final. So interesting match of sporting Kansas City, real Salt Lake we'll play tomorrow or excuse me..

"I just wonder. They usually lose to a bigger bigger, bigger soccer country, not a bigger population country, but a bigger soccer country in, but they've beat Mexico. And the second, the probably Erica is it's not a soccer country, right? I mean, it's definitely way more of a soccer country now than it was twenty years ago compared to the other sports in America. This one's there's more going on here for sure. So it's, it's the age old. The MLS whenever compete with the NFL. Right. But you just mentioned the MLS Melissa seen great strides, and just the last five or six years this, the league in the United States is growing. The US l. which is considered the second division, and the US is growing considerably soccer in this country continues to be one of the most popular sports in just keeps getting more and more popular as this gin. Ration- people between millennials and whatever you wanna call the generation before and after them, they see soccer as more. Popular than they do other sports like soccer still growing in this country. Kids still play this at an extremely high rate is we see a lot of kids focusing towards soccer and basketball from football football, seeing lower numbers. But I think that reason is a head injuries and soccer doesn't really have those. You know what funny enough? Soccer is the number two sport for concussions isn't really. Yeah, because people people get hit by the ball. Well, that's okay. You can kick the ball like a good solid kick is like sixty seventy miles an hour. Like if you get hit like point, blank range, you know, in the head of just compared to football, I feel like it's below lake distant to. It's actually number two. I wouldn't say it's a distant too, but I mean, yes, football is more violent. And those hits are are usually a little bit harder and their with their with another head instead of a ball. So that makes a difference. But going back to the US and their last two matches, they lose two to Columbia. They work out class. I mean, let's just be honest. They had the lead in the game, which was interesting, but they were outclassed. I mean, Columbia showed why they're one of the best countries in the world at soccer. You know, you guys at commerce Rodriguez that we talked about Quadra geo thou- I mean, these guys are world class, and this is a country that could win a World Cup like Columbia has shown that if that they are one of the teams, one of the best teams not just South America, but in the world. So the US lose, you know, they were dominated in the game, but they showed some some flashes. They scored two goals, killing a cost scores. Another young player, the US. It was nice to see. I think these games are important. It's good to take these lumps, but it's good to see the types of teams that the US will have to be if they ever want to achieve gory. I, I like them playing The Columbia's of the world and not the Trinidad and Tobago 's. Even though we have. The fact that they play the best competition the world rather than the weakest come. Yeah, they're playing. They're playing a young squad. They're sending a young squad out there to play some of the best players in the world. They're saying, go ahead shows what got, and of course you're gonna lose. You can only get better by playing better. Exactly. You're getting, you're getting experience. You're you're getting the see what great soccer looks like. So it's great for these players. They lose four to the last night. They play against Peru, and I thought they played very well in this game at times. Peru is another good team. Another World Cup team. They didn't advance in the group stage of the World Cup, but they were very unlucky. They were a solid team, maybe the most unlucky team in that tournament. When we look back at it, they they missed so many opportunities to score in their group stage matches. It's almost incredible that they didn't score more goals. But Peru, again is another solid, South American team on the top five teams in South America. But the. Heads flashes of that game where they really had control the game, they're creating chances. They lead for most of the game. I mean, they went for almost forty minutes of that game. They tie one, they give that way goal. But again, we talked about earlier, Josh sergeant, he scores for the US..

"They don't really, really love that one scene with the Chicago fire dynamo sense. I like that the fighting, go, dynamo tried to go different. So they were originally branded as like Powell, was it? I think it was like the eighteen ninety six because that was when the city of Houston was founded or something like that, and then they quickly abandoned it. But I would have been interested to kind of see something different pundits legacy. Yeah, I, you know, Philadelphia union, I get that, but it's also like we have got snake as Mascow. I don't know. I just can't. Our Krista the snake. Back to the revolution. Yeah, like unite or die. And like it was like the snake going through the rip all the different. Like, you know, they, I don't know. I'm not going to get history. Let's thanks very much. All right. I have one more question. I'm going to wrap this up. I've been asking this around with all major views. What do you guys think is the biggest thing holding America from really like hugging from like getting behind soccer? Do you think it's lack of scoring? Do you think it's flopping something? It's boring? Do we think is holding America Merican fans getting into sports fans getting into soccer Dominican? I do. I can go first and then I got a compose, which flipped one a month. Say, no, I'm trying to think too, but I got one. I think it's the fact that there's too many other sports to choose from when one seat, like if you're soccer team isn't doing well, people will just move on and be like, okay, well, we have football to watch your best football to watch, especially in the bigger markets like Philadelphia, like New York City, like LA, like a lot of Atlanta. There's a lot of teams around and we just have too much sports in the media right now that you can just ignore soccer if you want to. If your team's not doing well, and it becomes kind of an afterthought and. Just a side note, seem not making the World Cup is not gonna help anything. Right? So this Christians, my my short answer is is probably time like we're this sport has existed here for over one hundred years and people don't necessarily know or understand all of the history, but that's because it's come come in different ways than there hasn't been a league like MLS that has lessened for more than twenty years at this point. And so probably that is is the is the thing you know, I can get into training compensation, solidarity, payments, and all of that sort of interweaving. But that's a whole rabbit hole that I don't. I don't wanna take the listeners down. They're listening to me for almost an hour already. So short answer is is probably just time. I mean, we're already seeing different markets just popping up in being interested in soccer in US l. is exploding and MLS people beaten down the door to get in and the sport is growing here and it just needs more time to continue to to develop and so that that's what I'll say. Yeah, I definitely think. From what I've heard from a lot of people, the lack of scoring I hear from this funny Liverpool fan, actually, you guys like this that if we change the goals from one to seven. Would would jump at that one before. For it in the post. Throwing points fucking crazy. This is the best forever and it's like nothing. Nothing has changed as your interpretation of what down. Yep. Goal means like, you know, it's just. I think it's just silly and I think I definitely agree with you guys. I think it's definitely has made huge strides. I think not making into World Cup, definitely hurt us a bit a lot actually. But I think it's definitely going in the right direction, but, hey, guys, you guys so much for coming on again. Can you tell guys where you can find him? I knew guys are on Spotify now. So shout. You guys. So tell the listeners, your social media and all sorts of shit crochet..

All right. Was birthday. Yeah, we're not that good. To be fair. I don't really know too many of my friends birthdays off the top of my head to I like the the time of year that my friend's birthdays I know one of my when my closest friends he's literally like fifteen days right after mine. I know my wife's birthday and that's should. That's all that I need. Right. I mean parents to, I guess. Yeah, I know that there's too and my sisters. I know my brothers. I don't all my sister-in-law. I'm sorry guys. Loves them to death, but continue speaking of birthdays. Do you know that Cristiano Rinaldo and neymar share birthday. Okay. Like the same date, February fifth, the same person, they're not the same age, but it is kind of crazy that those two players actually share birthday. But regardless moving on as I've clearly lost Jeff here. I don't know. We got the verdict fact, so also. So the MLS Major League Soccer season is coming to a close. Teams are vying for the playoffs right now top six from each conference make it looks like out west, the galaxy or currently on the outside looking in. I think it would be a shame if they don't make the playoffs just because I wanna sees lot ton Ibrahima vich in a playoff game. He's a draw. He's been great for the league. He's been fun to watch. What do you make of him what he Novell's a lot on. Probably the most popular soccer player in America at the moment. Yeah, yeah, that sounds about right. Maybe him or Carlos Velez various hot. The messy, of course, just. Yeah. Like MLS players for sure. I mean his, his presence really doesn't get the love of others other other, no. But I think there's a lot of tons presence has been great for the league, and it just shows that players kind of coming here earlier and earlier as getting up there in age, but he still has something in the tank. He could definitely play for a lot of big European clubs, especially Champions League clubs. He would definitely do well for them. Start for them make an impression, but him actually being in LA I think is good for the growth of the sport here, but they can't. We sit outside of the playoffs. They're only a couple of points behind that last playoff spot. They're actually they could go as high as fourth looking at the standings now. Yeah, Carlos villa. The other l. LA team Elliott c owned by wolf fairl. Did you know that was on my win the new Los Angeles club? Elliott. See, this is their first year in the us. They're owned by LA team LAF see. So now there's two soccer teams to of two basketball teams to football teams in baseball team to baseball team Anaheim. They're not. They're not called. They're actually called the Los Angeles. I thought there the angels. I thought they were just the angels of Anaheim. They have LA hat on their hat a with the, no, they don't halo the angels. Yeah, I'm looking at Hala regardless kidding me. No, they have the regardless back to soccer. Elliot see owned by will fail. So they're having greet for season. Carlos villa is their star player, the Mexican international. He's definitely put his Mark on the league. Hey, I'm showing pick their hats. I'm just showing him a picture of the logo. Okay. Anyways, we'll have all right, fine. Move on some notable fixtures in the world of soccer other than MLS Barcelona. They play at Valencia this weekend out there.

The retired Bradley's getting off their Josie. Jozies Josie. I'm, he might pop in again. I'm ready to move forward and I hear a lot of say, well, you bring such and such player veteran. He could teach these guys and you know, when they go down hunters for qualifier, he's going to be such as such player. He's going to be the guy that kind of shepherds. The young. I'm not. I don't really buy that, especially kind of what happened with the last generation where they had. You know, a lot of people remanded assizes twenty four team World Cup. I don't. I thought it was kind of a middling thing. I thought the Belgian game where everybody was like so excited about Tim. How're breaking the the saves record while how'd you get into that position where you force them how to make homeless as is. You know, I'm ready to climb to move away from that generation. Not not that the spirit under some great players there and they did have some good achievements, but not qualifying for twenty teen. And for not having that big of a showing and twenty fourteen I'm ready to move on. I'm ready to, you know, kind of liver die with these younger guys.

It's so exciting to see that you in the back of your just compared it to. 'cause I was all about it coming home during the world up, like I don't have Merican this is coming home. Maybe it's that just excites me so much Christian. I think just in the past couple of guys just heard twenty scored on his birthday. He saved Dorman from points the other day or got points the other day in the last minute draw.

I wouldn't necessarily say so. I mean spending money on top of money on top of money doesn't always work now hasn't worked for PS at all. So it'll be interesting to see.

"Oh, right. Welcome back to the g. SM see soccer podcast. Our shot a little phone with that, but either way we move onto the fourth segment. I mean. DC United match against Orlando city was something on Sunday, wasn't it. I mean, if you haven't seen that Wayne Rooney slide tackle assist, where are you doing? Why not? I mean, it was ridiculous. Oh, you're not that game some details on it. Two, two. We had Luciano cost scoring in the forty fifth minute of forty. Fifth minute forty, nine th minute technically, if you wanna count stoppage-time. This is from Wayne Rooney. There. Then an old goal from David Austin, which made it one one Orlando city back in it sixty four minute Luciano cost scores. Once again assist from Yamile Assad seventy. First minute Dom Dwyer ends of scorn for Orlando city to there. And then basically both teams looking for that third goal. Then we get to the ninety four th minute ninety fifth minute somewhere around there. These United has got their keeper playing up top. Meaning coming down corner just because didn't extra man to get that goal to get the win. Ball ends up getting played out by our Landau city and one of their places team down the wing. He's about to take his shop. Then you see old man, Wayne Rooney hustling right beside him. Slide tackles player goes down. No foul. We're gonna gets up, picks the ball, takes it down the field to the ripe little bit ahead of half field. Mark ends up. I mean. Lobbing the ball from how far it was dick Yetlis. But like I said, right near the halfway line ends a blob in the ball into the box. And I'd say it was across, but I'm also thinking across as you're going down the wing, not so right by the halfway line, but either way lobs it did. And I mean, it was a perfect ball for cost of get behind heads it into the back of the net like literally right at the end of the game. And is United end up winning three two. I mean, plays like that are what makes the game, so great. I remember seeing it on Twitter and. Mean only ever seen so many people who don't watch soccer talk about it and enjoy that one play. And I do think since the World Cup that soccer is a hole in this country has grown more so populated with the molasses grown. Also, I'd say, 'cause you're seeing outlets who don't really give it the time of day, talk all about it. I mean, literally everyone was talking about that. So I think the MLS is on the up and up and even without the World Cup, I thought that the MLS was on the, but I think they've done well to promote their game. I think it's starting to get more eyeballs. Looking at two games from this weekend. You had the New England Revolution playing Philadelphia union. The union ended up winning that game three to Columbus Crew being Houston, dynamo, one zero. New York, red wolves beat Chicago fire 1-0. You had the Colorado Rapids beating the earth quakes to one. And I mean, I'm not sure really why this earthquake team has been so bad for so allowing with there's something that they gotta change up. I mean, they brought in a new GM and just floored Nellie that hasn't worked out. I mean, he hasn't gotten this team, the players that they need and it's just honestly been just problems out the problem. The problem, I think they only have one win since may if I'm not mistaken. I mean, the San Jose earthquakes team might be literally were soccer tape in the world right now. Ralph Salt Lake bidding or actually drawing with Montreal one one, LA galaxy drawing with Minnesota to to. We got goals from little main Alison greenie in the seventh minute for LA assist from. Lots on Abraham vich Michael Boxall scoring in the sixty four th minute maid at one there. This is from Darwin contextual former club America man who has played extremely well in the MLS oh far for Minnesota. So bashing legit playing for earth scoring for LA to one there assist from Jonathan does santarpio's and there were Mario Bara scoring the eighty four th minute for Minnesota made it to to their Francisco.

You advertising in scoring in the eighth minute. The adjusted loose scoring in the eleventh minute for Newcastle Delhi scoring the eighteenth minute for Tottenham. Harry Kane, still another day in August without a goal and not only have necessarily a problem, but our wages, something funny to talk about the dude scores. I mean, imagine if he did score and August August wasn't a promise scored in August all the dude lead. The goal scored literally every single season.
