"Promise last week when i introduced charlene's first story edition. I talked to the absolute joy of finding what i thought of as a a street on her blog and blogs by the way aspect within our chats in a moment this on the you'll doing right now as photographer you may not thought about as something that could be precious to the way that you work and the message. Is you give on your website. Here's some food for thought. There's a raft of research out there that suggests we remember things that we see and even touch more than what we hear but we trust what we hear more than what we say. I was reading about a research group split into two groups. Same size groups. Twenty people watched the documentary one room and then twenty. People listened to the same documentary without pitches in an adjacent room. The results well. There was a sense of belief noticeably. More pronounced when the sense of sight was removed. Some suggested a fake news is almost trained out senses to the point where we no longer trust out is some of the research following. The session revealed sentences and feedback like well. It's so easy to manipulate. Picked these days and camera angles But it wasn't a toll that in real life yet. The palpable sense of dismissal was not nearly so pronounced in the audio only room. I find that fascinating that someone who's dedicated a great proportion of his life to sound. But now i'm a photographer. Anima filmmakers to mean a lot. Personally it'd be making kind of supercharged. Slide shows where the audio texture of what was actually happening at the time. I pressed the shutter and both commercially. And personally it's provides a great sense of satisfaction when presenting my stories but we can't all make or even wished to make films even slight says neal i he even when i can't really he still sensing what you'll say to me even imagining your voice to a degree really genuinely so. I was absolutely excited when i visited today's guests. Website moreover blog first time round to hear her talking to me many sites have a way of inserting audio. And if they don't you can always embed sound using services like soundcloud. Perhaps we should do an episode or even film about that at some stage is probably five six years since i visited a landscape photographers website. And please. i wish. I could remember the name of that talented shooter who played out the sound of the countryside. That was the soundtrack to each picture. Honestly i really labored over that site so it makes it all the morning embarrassing. I can't recall the name. It's likely that will come to me at three. Am in the morning so expect to post one day. So i want to ask you. How could you talk to those. Who view your pictures may not be suitable for every application short. But i i bet there's a story you shoot where it would add a version while somebody is digesting. You incredible pitches so to charlene winfred then for the second part in her mini series. We're going to talk a little more today about her. Nomadic life is a photographer and how having a camera making street pictures means. She investigates studies and a muscle and travel. But let me. I return to that blog. Post where i i actually meant charlene and i use that word advisedly. I'd read the about page ad. Spent time looking at the pictures. But this is where i believe i. I met her talking about making pictures. Spring into action. You make it frame. And then another and another and another the minutes took by the wolf aids from a blush to a bruise on the cusp of evenings dusty hugh streetlamps snap on and the night is gone you feel for a moment. The lament of that poet of lost boys and country lanes grieving for the fall of paradise. You drag yourself in your fifteen. Nothing frames home and hope that one of them carries the magic and day that demon that has been summarily banished. I'll leave a link to the whole piece own. Today's charlotte's my guest is charlene winfred. I looked at your site. Charlene for dot com on. I found immediately a posting your journal. That drew me in mainly. Because i don't think i've ever ever visited a photographer site to be treated to poetry and annot you don't call it poetry but that's what it appeared to sound like to me Your moment post evenly just posted. Actually it's fabulous. Fabulous is not going to become something you do more often. That's missing would you do it more often. I love that. That post was really was really just that it was an instagram post end. I've been neglecting my blog. Davor instagram simply. Because i can post on instagram. From wherever eminent only tend to post on instagram. Live out on the train and the bus waiting for something off in the middle of something. Which i don't do with my blog but honestly that spoken piece was just me trying a voiceover set out because i do. I do a little bit. Of course what fault. Phone my job and i just need a. We'd figure out how to how to bake a clean recording in. So i thought i'll just try to stop being david attenborough reading random things that i've written. Well i
Why NFTs Are Attracting Everyday People to Crypto
"Everyone's been talking about tease or non fungible tokens this week for those in the audience, you aren't sure what those are. If you remember Crypto kitties which were unique collectable digital casn I still think they exist. That's just one example Jake. Can you define what a non fungible tokens and then we can dive into why there's so much chatter about them. Now, absolutely, I mean the simple definition of a non fungible. Is a token. That represents a unique asset work to crypto currencies where we have many units that are all worth the same like if I had one ether Laura when ether those are you know they're the same value but if I had one crypto kitty and you had another Crypto Kitty, they actually might be valued totally differently your crypto kitty might be really scarce and valuable might be resume common, and so non fungible tokens they really represent this this. This class of unique assets that's out there. Into what's been going on with them recently, why has there been so much chatter. Well. As someone who's been watching the space for for a very, very long time for from the very beginning. When Rare Pepe? Images were to be traded on counterparty with it seems like about Elian. Years ago. It's a long time ago. How is before Cryptic Eddie's? I think what's what's actually happening is that the space of non fungible assets is maturing a little bit and what we've seen is actually a little bit of interesting early conversion of digital creators are creating art and collectibles and other kinds of NFC assets, and they're starting to trade them on marketplaces in the volume on these marketplaces is going up a bit and related to that I think investors have matured a little bit in their thinking about the NFC space and they've started to position in. Make investments a venture style mostly so far? In companies that are that are in the NFC space in it's been very exciting. And there's even a little bit of the yells farming thing going on within fifteen. So I think that's another reason people are getting excited because even though the crees has died down from the fever pitch, I still see. In it But you actually wrote a really interesting blog post about an of to any you had like another definition that you gave, which is you said that NFC's liquid intellectual property for digital content. So what do you mean by that? Yes. This is exactly. What I've been sort of saying is like most people have so far rushed off the NFC spaces. People trading funny pictures on you know on blockchain's. and. If you sort of thought experiment a little bit in you in, you start to understand a little bit of a kind of financial use cases that NFC's enable. You start to realize that if you take this view of teas as strong ownership of digital contents. Things get quite interesting and the first thing to observe is that there is just like a lot of different kinds of digital contents. Certainly there's certainly there's collectibles. But there's also three d models or metaverse assets. There's also stock photography. There's also blog posts that people right and then monetize through syndication. There's music on which artists earn royalty. There's movies which get distributed on platforms like Netflix on and so forth, and if you start to count up the number of digital objects on the Internet and in the world, you actually start piling up quite an asset classes of objects, and if you start to think of NFC's is being kind of a very fitting technology to denote ownership of these objects to denote the royalty streams of these objects on the start to get away from a little bit of the speculative aspects like, Oh, I buy Crypto, Katie I'm going to. Flip it to somebody else later, and you start to get into the more fundamentally valued aspects of of non fungible assets, which is like, Hey, maybe, I'll own the revenue stream to Taylor, saw Taylor swift song or album or something like that or maybe I'll own the movie rights to certain like digital character that I'll be able to license out and when you take that view of. NFC's as liquid intellectual property. What you start to realize is that most intellectual property doesn't live on secondary markets today, it's kind of liquid and what blockchain enables is the liquidity of these markets, and so the reason that I'm super excited about NFC is as an investor is I think that we're about to unlock a whole lot of value that previously has been in these non-traded like. Paper rights, but as about to get a lot more digital. So I have so many questions about what he said. But before we can into those, I do just want to make one comment, which is I notice near blog posts that you had a chart of different kinds of content and one of them said written content. And underwritten it was like movies and videos, and I was like what about articles and e books as a writer? I just had a point that you missed. Right there because I would not call videos and movies written content and and also like even just knowing your example when you mentioned blog post. So is like their professional writers to who like a living writing But. Anyway. Okay. So we were talking you were talking about if he's from the Creator's perspective, but I wanted to ask also. So right now as a consumer I already have you know multiple libraries of music that I can tap like you know music stream from apple or spotify or Pandora Soundcloud, etc or you know I can go into these different stock photography sites or whatever. So what's in it for the end-consumer like what would get them to make a switch? Because basically democratize is the ownership in in this kind of content, right? So if if you think about of stock photography site today like getty images or shutter stock or something like that, I mean you're talking about a private business that is facilitating marketplace between stock photographers and purchasers of stock photography like designers or making websites, and so on and so forth. And this marketplace model is exactly the thing that blockchain. Technology in my opinion was really born to to disrupt and what basically wh what can happen is we can replace that proprietary provisioning of the marketplace with a decentralized smart contract based system, which is exactly what marketplaces like like recently wearable have done, and we can give the ownership and the governance of that system to the community of people who are participants in that marketplace, and that's really really powerful value proposition that blockchain's in general
How to Get More Podcast Listeners
"Welcome to another episode of Marketing School I'm Eric Su. And I'm Neil Patel and today we're GonNa talk about how you can get more podcasts listener. So podcasts are still exploding right now I definitely recommend everyone checkout just Google Edison podcast reporters at annual report that shows you how podcast are continuing to grow interesting enough throughout the spend Amick we actually we almost touch one point three, million in last month I don't know if you saw neil. So we'll do not were growing through this thing which is crazy. So more podcast listeners like kick it off I one thing that you can do. One thing you should do. This is basic. You have to be consistent most people give to easily most people are like after thirty days of doing it or sixty-two, even sixty days of doing it. It's like. Know I'm not getting much not getting much but you gotta keep going as long as you think you are learning as long as you think you getting better just like with the leveling up podcast I wasn't getting anything for the first two years. If you have the right goal in mind that you are here to educate yourself and learn more articulate to a small group of people that will continue to grow don't just come and be like, oh. These people have millions and millions of downloads I'll never be that way come with with that mindset you'll never get there. Yet you know an Eric if you look at his podcast, he did well, because he was consistent on top of that when everything your podcast promoted through all your channels, let people know about it and not just once let them know every single episode whether you want to push your content and do through emails or social channels. Heck wanting that we even do and you can copy. This is every time you're doing a podcast recording, go live on your social channels and that a hub bring more attention to your podcast and actually caused you to get more listeners as well. Yeah. repurposes much as you can kind of doubling down on meals point there's a service called repurpose house of repurpose house dot io you can use them I mean it's like two hundred to five hundred dollars a month but these videos like Neil I were were live right now but these videos can be recorded into small little social pieces and we can push it out in social sometimes. I'd do it, and if you don't have time for that. I recommend using an APP called Shuffle I. Think it's an it's called get shuffle I believe and you can make though transcribed for you and you could share to instagram stories. You can also do the same with overcast. So sometimes, I'll take fifteen minutes or fifteen second segments and I'll I'll push to stories but the point here is You, WanNa make the most of what you have and a lot of people. Now, everyone still at home right now, people are still down to do video interviews and you can just go further with beautyrest. You're finding a time why don't you make the most of it? And then another thing to keep in mind as you're oldies are goodies. So podcasting everyone folks on their latest episodes wanting to know is your old episodes can keep getting traffic that every game traffic google also is ranking podcast episodes end search now. So make sure you're putting them on a website make it easy to find so that way you can get the Seo juice from it, and also when you're listening to podcasts in the stores, don't show your latest ten episodes you're one hundred episodes showcase as many as they allow you to showcase because even the old wounds will still get searched and get traffic. As, well YEP and the other thing too is whatever hosting platform you're using podcast host pushes the spotify push soundcloud, push it to all these other channels because it's free to do it it's not gonNa take you much more effort dealer thing I'll add to that is if you're doing an interview podcast collaborating with people making it easy for them, maybe you give him a little tweet maybe you give them a little social image or whatever it is you decide but oftentimes whenever I do interviews someone and they promote it, it goes way further and the podcast grows a lot faster I found to be really effective.
Twitch signs rapper Logic to an exclusive seven-figure deal
"Let's talk a little more about the rapper. Logic Aka Sir Robert Bryson Hall the second signed an exclusive streaming partnership. With soundcloud not with spotify with twitch, it's the services first exclusive streaming deal with a musician in an interview with the Verge Hall said the deal was worth. Seven figures didn't give the exact amount, but said he's been active on twitch, since two, thousand, fifteen or twenty sixteen, his first stream, as part of the deal will be July, twenty first with a premiere of his self-proclaimed final album called no pressure. They said he also plays. Plays Video Games so he's going to be doing that on there as well I think. It's interesting Sarah that we're seeing twitch makes deals with non video game, purveyors, or players as we see, facebook and Youtube tried to sign people away from twitch. Yeah, no, kidding! I mean logic is whether or not you're familiar with his music. He's A. He's a big artist. This is somebody that's going to get a lot attention for twitch. Whether. He's huge Gamer or not I mean. He says you know he's familiar with. She's been hanging out on twitter for the for the last four or five years kind of thing you know that probably helped the deal become that much sweeter, but I wonder how somebody like a musician who supposedly retiring at least from what we consider the traditional music route. I Dunno people retire all the time. And then they come back to the music industry, but but but yeah, like what does you know? What is this kind of exclusive access to a person, and they might do all sorts of things besides what you know them for and twitch being one of those things and it. Be In this live kind of thing because you get that on Instagram, you do get that on Youtube. You have a variety of places to do this, but the exclusivity part is very interesting. Yeah Caitlin I, Dunno, if you follow any of the twitch, streamers are not. I'm a little bit here and there. I've used the platform I've watched him shows. And really all I have to say about this is. That is really interesting. The music industry I'll kind of change its ways because it had to, it had to update. People were going out and buying CDs anymore. You know people aren't buying full albums. They're buying songs individually so they had to figure out some different ways of generating revenue and seeing them partnering. You know artists partying with twitch or seen what fortnight has been doing with their concerts? And watching this video games slash music crossover has been really interesting, and frankly I like it because it's interesting. My kids who are more into gaming than they are music to different things, yeah. I mean it's kind of a renaissance. Move Right and I think it's really smart for logic to to say like I don't want the pressure despite the name of my final album to always be on me to to you, know actually I that is the name. It's no pressure I. Don't want the pressure to be on me for music. He doesn't say he's going GONNA. GonNa stop making music, but he's not gonNA feel pressured to always be putting out an album. Because now he's got a direct pipeline to his fans and I think that's that's really interesting. Aspect of this is. Is they creator saying I don't WanNa? Be just a musician, just a video game player my question is. Are we to get mixed tape, logic or album logic? And that remains to be seen, but yeah, I mean that's a really good point. for an artist to be like okay. Well I've been super successful in one arena, but I want to do some other stuff, but it's not super clear what those dreams are going to be yet, and it was just logically and video games. Okay, well, that would that would sort of true with which audience, but it might not be, and it might open up a lot of other opportunities for other artists as well. I think we're an interesting time right now. Where a lot of are celebrities, a lot of our big names are people that are simply known for the colts of personality. They're not necessarily known for being additions being actors doing things there. We have the know reality stars. We have people that are famous, just because of who they are, so it's really. Interesting, see these people make the people that are established WANNA. Rea- make that transition to see if they can kind of cut it being famous just for meme.

Doja Cat + TikTok = It's a Thing
"Here's my justification. We talked about the. Does your Cat Nicki Menaj? Mash up taking over TIKTOK. Then I saw there was a cat freak. Which is a song of hers from Twenty Eighteen, that was taken over Tiktok. So what I'm doing is I'm declaring dosier, cat and TIKTOK. Thing got it. Cat On. Take talk those you can't on Tiktok. Exactly Yeah I think that is, that is true. Yes, I'm not I'm not creating the thing I am acknowledging the thing like this this this this happened before it will happen again. And we won't have to talk about it again because we will have already declared I mean. This is the power by the way, not just it's not just our are stellar reputations here. It's also the power of its thing to just go ahead and put this one in the stone tablet. Does your cat plus tiktok dime those cat on tiktok twenty twenty where on it? Sounds like a campaign. kind of why not honestly why not? which was the running mate doesn't matter doesn't matter. Just you know it's. Fascinating though she. Is From L. A. Area. I think Tarzana she was. She's of south. African descent on her father's side or mother's jewish-american an painter. And she just kind of started on one of those started on soundcloud like you WanNa talk you WanNa talk thing. Totally be people making a name for themselves with music on Soundcloud, then becoming means on Tiktok like she's. She's playing by the modern book. Oh. Definitely I mean the whole sort of crossover thing that is just tick tock song. It's really interesting. It's been interesting to watch. I think I'm assuming it is somewhat pandemic related like talk with obviously spawning hard to tell, isn't it? Yeah, well, what's hard for me to tell like is no one else making new music ray, or is it that is it just the accelerate the expected acceleration of the trends that already was like. Becoming hits because his one on satellite radio like we put it on and my son just like Oh, there's A. TIKTOK. I don't know why that makes them. Lesser exactly wrote really great. One over here. Getting to say that like it's one could also be Tiktok, might be ripping off. It's what I'm just saying it could work. It's really true. It's really true, but yeah. No I mean getting famous for your take on. Its thing. Yeah. From from Lana Zak. To Dosier. We keep you informed of. For for as long as as discord points out for as long as tiktok is allowed in the US. Keeping, you want to go too much on the side. Jaguar wouldn't give that much credence until until it's in in a policy document. There's a lot of posturing involved in in in that so I'm not saying it won't happen I'm just saying right now. It's at the stage of. Let's say things to make other people angry, so we can get things out of them, not like. Let's actually do a thing. Yeah, also the kids will not be having
Miriam A. Hyman
"Welcome to the Black Gardeners podcast. I'm your host riot and I'm so excited because I have a special guest today, and all the way I know how to introduce her is that she's out here tracking like her nickname star. Also. I just need to put it out here that I know you can't spit like her and if you heard that laugh in the background I'm talking about actress. Lyricist Mirim Hyman and I'm so excited. She's here also. You might know her by the Moniker Robinhood we're going to get into that. But Mirim how you doing? How you feeling? Man You know just just pushing it day by day. Are you doing with all the stay at home? And all this other craziness? We got going on Oh man I'm just trying to stay productive in proactive to be honest so I've been trying to just make the most of my time you know. Yeah which are very versatile I. Just I think that is huge especially in the time period that we're in in the first thing I want to talk about. Is the lyricist artist in you, so tell me where Robin Hood came from like. How did you get into music? Wow, you know is so crazy! I actually started writing. In two thousand thirteen once I had killed. Yeah. I came graduate school I went to Yale to get my masters acting and so basically when I came of Graduate School I had a lot of time on my hands. however I was working on a show called Richard the second excuse me Richard to third at the Public And? Basically you know if you're not familiar with the public as off Broadway theatre in New York and I was cast in the show, and I just had a lot of time on my hands, and so I started to download like a lot of. Really popular industry instrumentals, and so there's a lot of artists out there that I just really appreciate and respect, so you know I was downloading like beats that Swiss beats had done for like jd kiss and whole and be here because I had this time on my hands, and I was working on a Shakespeare show. It was like I don't know. The bar turned into bars like I just. Started writing one line were turned into two lines, and then that would turn into verse and then basically. I just started writing like my first mix tape, which was journey of an MC, and that's really how Robin Hood was birth, you know I would back and forth trying to figure out like the right name, and what would make the most sense you know to my community, but really for myself. I just wanted something that represented who I am and who? I'm really focused on trying to be. How I'm trying to uplift my community, so that's really kind of came from and I had to change the I two a y. you know funded up a little bit. Yep. That's right and I. I grew up in Philadelphia so I. I grew up in the hood. You know so. My thing has always been like taking the poverty going from poverty to prestige. Growing up in Philadelphia in some of the roughest areas, just being an impoverished community, and then being able to go all the way to an Ivy League institution, so. I learned a lot. In that timeframe you know, and so I just wanted to bring that to the music in India better. To uplift inspire, so you know that's where we are. Well, you know. You definitely did not to draw any comparisons to you guys, but one of my one of my favorite artists is eve. And say. Right and I liked the way and see what I liked about your music to of because go you know filling ham villa some of these days I, like I'm pumping yours now on apple music by the way you guys can get on Apple Music and soundcloud and we'll talk about different projects in a minute. But the RAW news that you having your lyrics just to be exposed to me I find your unique about hip hop in artists like yourself that are not afraid to go there listen. Trying to keep my heart, yeah! I was just very very daring at. You're willing to do that. Yeah I mean like in my my most recent. EP which is called Truth Teller I have a song called hip hop is honest, and if you listen to the hood, that will yeah, yeah, so the hook is hip. Hop is honest. Speak, the truth detects never need invalidate the bar. Say Next so basically. You know just a little bit. But that that it's really about being honest, and I had this thing that I say which is, keep it hot and is that means honest, open truthful. And so those are just little principles that you can take into your relationship, you know if you have a significant other or just your relationships with family friends you with yourself is just being honest and open and truthful about how we go about our day and for me, because music is such a huge part of it, it's like how can I not keep it real with my bars? You know I had to keep it real with everything else. You know like what the acting. If you see a scene that I'm in or film that I'm in, and it's not honest. You know off the bed. You know so. Yeah, that's true.

Flighthouse CEO Jacob Pace on building a media company on TikTok
"Welcome to the digital podcast. I'm Brian Marcy this weekend. Georgia Jacob Jacob is the CEO of Flight House. which if you don't aflaid houses digital digital media company most tectonic but beyond tectonic does stout a number of us what like a billion a month billing vis a month? Yeah twenty one million subscribers bribers on Tick Tock Jacob. Himself is Gen Z.. CEO You described as a baby face of a baby face. Mogul that works. Twenty five eight and also The New Yorker said that Jacob has the radic energy of champion sled dog on on a break. How accurate do you think that is both say? We'll see weirdly Jacob. The same thing has been said about me. Oh why energy. So let's let's talk about. Let's talk about Flight House first and then then how you got involved but like for those who are unfamiliar. Who might not be inflate houses You you know. Target demographic explain it. Yeah for sure. So essentially flight house is Basically the largest entertainment brand on six right now so we're really the only ones producing original content So for anyone. That's not familiar with like tick tock. Of course it's a short form mobile APP a little similar to just kind of like a newer sort of breed of it right. Yeah And even like you know Taylor Lorenzo's point who was like on this podcast like she's like it's just way more robust than vine and just a lot more editing features. A different kind of sense of humor. Humor so essentially a very simple way of like describing us to someone that might not be familiar as like. We're the you know. Think about this as like a buzzfeed complex of tick tock so we're producing original content while everyone else is kind of you know creators in their own right. But we're making individual sort of tick Tock Stars and whatnot like what you're doing and is your building a brand brand. Yeah exactly so explain. I mean you have series. We have a serious so one of our biggest ones. Actually which I think to date has probably done over. I would say in the range of like one to two hundred million views. Overall is this one called Finish the tick tock later. That's cool. Yeah those those always do really well. I think the first when we upload it did like thirty million views on the first episode and it just went super crazy on the platform also explain. I mean it's always weird. You have to explain tectonics not yeah do explain for those who've who have not seen it at how or how it works super simple So obviously finished. The lyric is kind of a popular segment. It's kind of around the Internet right like like on Youtube and instagram. We've seen it where a popular song is played. And then the two guests that are playing it Essentially it stops at a certain point. Where like let's say it's the hook and then whoever presses the Buzzer I had dreams where I can't move Thing and guesses the lyric correctly wins inking of of you. So we've basically taken that segment and introduced it specifically for Tick Tock so we get big talk traders as well as You know big take talk songs kind of in the mix and so you have all these kind of very relevant names to the platform like guessing the lyric and it's like very interactive with the audience. Okay so explain tick tock songs. Yeah not ever hold this like familiar with that word subculture of its own. I mean you know I think old town roads. That's probably the biggest example of that. And then you have songs like la La la You know by whites. UK and BB. No money Released all these different records that are blowing up added Tick Tock I think as of recent we've seen that Arizona's Urfa Song Roxanne for Drug San Right now. I'll come on on this. Let's stick nick with with Old Town road. All right we'll see the big one hip to Tanaz. Yeah exactly but now explain I mean there. There are a lot of songs that blow up up until now so I mean this this is John Nra The the complete the lyrics like they exist outside of ticked on. Yeah I mean it's you know it's you adapted it to tick Tock back So basically a lot of these songs Blow up on Tick Tock right so a lot of these creators and users and when I say creators as I mean anyone from the big you know multi-million users to even just people that have a few thousand Get behind these different trends and essentially you know make talks if everyone kind of gets on the same page. That's an old town road happens differen- But a lot of these records the music industry right now is like really really really really prioritizing talk because obviously the the known ways of blowing up records are like spotify apple music youtube and so talking aways like a new soundcloud to the music industry. Okay you know on soundcloud. You had a lot of these artists like you know the whole soundcloud rap wave like pomp. And whoever and even billy ILITCH got big on on southbound right So now it's breeding a lot of these artists like soundcloud where you have You know little Nasdaq's and whites UK and Arizona and so that's kind of where part of our business model fits in is sort of working with the music industry to figure out the best way to kind of engage tick tock So they kind of promote their records so tick tock itself Self Sununu type of platform. So what makes media that works on Tick Tock I mean. We've I think a lot of us have seen who aren't on talk you know. Have I've seen the compilations and stuff like this. And there's a lot of creativity there but how do you translate that into into media. You know. Series repeatability yeah. I mean I think we're sort of scratching the surface on that right now Obviously I think in media there's a way to kind of entertain your audience where you sort give them the low hanging fruit and then over time you try to reel them into something That's a little bit sort of Bigger than that initial concept right so our way of kind of Are Low hanging fruit was finished a toddler. We kind of knew that if we gave them a product that was easily digestible. They'd be able to Kinda take face value but then I think as we kind of go forward it's like how do we make it less. SORTA talk specific and more flight. How specific and how does our brand really show and You know I think I was thinking about this the other day. I definitely think that you know one of the things that really make successful. Content of ours is interactivity so when we can kind of create a series where our audiences can kind of play along and they kind of do that with finish the tick tock lyric right like when they're watching it. They kind of feel like they're playing along as well and they can kind of guess. The lyric Kinda jump in there and I think that there's probably a huge factor for the success in our content. What are some other series? The F- We have finished the tick tock lyric. We have another one called Shit Talk Right now where we basically get artists that actually when we pull it up right now you see podcast Jacob. Yeah we have a lot of really a lot of cool new ones that were kind of rolling out right now but let me ask you this. Is there anything that you tried on tic TAC. That didn't work and why. Oh I didn't work Yeah we've had a lot of series that we've kind of rolled out that haven't done as well as finished at six and we try to make educated guesses as to why they don't work can again. I think interactivities kind of one of those ones that we always fall back on is like if we can make it as interactive as we can. It's always gonNA perform better Oh Yeah we have another one called like Suggestion box basically like fans will kind of jump in and Okay so interactive seems to be under activity read for sure for sure on talk for sure and then like even you know one that that didn't do as well as we wanted. It's Hugh But that was a really cool series was We had this one called it. was basically artist trippy. Read sure yes. So he was on. He was on Flight House recently. And it was this series called love advice with trippy red and and we actually got him a relationship therapist Inside our facility and trippy basically went through like fan comments of like Them them wanting relationship advice in Lubbock is and him in the relationship that are pissed with kind of like answer the questions and give advice and it okay On talk it has like I think three hundred four hundred thousand views on youtube right now which is like decent in our is But I think it wasn't as interactive. It was more of it was more of a one way thing versus like a two way interactive thing you know and I think that's just kind of what we're trying to build right now. So how do you see the type of media that works on Tick Tock. Different from the type of media works on say snapchat. Yeah it's pretty similar. I mean I think tick tock we definitely try to target it's at its Gen Z.. Culture Like just hyper focused on that. Like who are the artists that they find very relevant to the tick Tock Stars that they find really relevant snapshots pretty similar because is it is sort of mobile. I and the way that you sort of consume content is like vertical. It's mobile and like that's how we produce all of ours has Tom. I have a younger audience. Are you aiming for a different type of audience than than you would. I mean it depends on how you define that right like after like thirteen. Eighteen to seventeen right now a big portion of our audiences around thirteen to twenty okay and mostly female thing about snapchat though and I will say this is something that we don't do on talk is the graphics snapshots very graphic. It'll like a lot of stuff moving like in Ou- spinning For us as we try to just keep it focused on the person for now but we're experimenting with a lot of stuff even next year. Okay so who makes this stuff. We have team. Yeah so we have editor Tina. The seventeen year olds or their house. Yeah I know we're all kind of in our twenty something. Okay Yeah so you know we've been around the block. He's a Dovan stuff go. Yeah Yeah so how did you become involved with. You didn't start flight. Oh No so when I was around eighteen. You're you're like brought in as as the the old guy. Yeah exactly yes. So when I was eighteen I was working at our parent company. Create Music Group where I'd been there for a couple years because The one of the cofounders flew out when I was like sixteen and I just did a lot of business development and anr for them. And at the time I was trying to figure out like new creative ways to kind of promote our artists and so I saw musically. 'cause I was just very familiar with the space and I saw this page called Flight House and I just kept seeing everywhere so when it was at like a million followers Reached Out Start it's Kinda work with the kids that started it who were probably like a year two younger than I was at the time it was two brothers and we sort of brought them in and we acquired The brand from them and then just they were just like creating content on their own so it wasn't even original content. At the time it was it was like remixes so basically on musically there was sort of a library of music that users can tap into right so they'd offer all the top forty songs and in you know any song that was pretty much put out by a major label and where Flight House got big was they would upload sort of sped up at its and slowed down and remix versions of songs And the users on musically sort of found that to be like a valuable enough thing to follow a paid for and so some of these remixes would get like you know ten thousand one hundred thousand sometimes up to a million repos on musically at the time and that sort of how it started and then as it turned into tick tock we were like all right. Let's figure you're out a way that this can be more than just a remix sort of brand.

It's true: The sound of nature helps us relax
"Why this whole new science of bio fuel yeah says that if you look at images of nature and hear sounds of nature the purest found it actually we don't for hundreds of thousands of years we we are in trained to feel uplifted and calm and our soul is nourished when we're around sounds of nature right that's always the best thing to do is like when you're feeling out of sorts if you could somehow be in a place with mother nature is louder than the sounds of traffic the best and the nominal tool that could bailable to every single human being is the ability to sing bottom line is the human body love to say right now and I know chanting and singing and Tony and then they stimulate the body in a positive way and hold events and when you actually start tuning your year to listening for the thing that makes you feel good music is medicine for the heart and soul that's what's so great about that so if our listeners want to nourish themselves with some of your great work I think they could probably find a lot of it on soundcloud my right we can certainly sample things on so called the music of Kerry Malcolm or with some of the world but they can also buy my stuff it with some of the world as well and certainly on Spotify what if we just turn down the sound with all the people blathering at each other about who's right and who's wrong and put on a beautiful day of

Yeah and the in him an extra in a weird way working very similar territory. Just I feel like coming at it through opposite doors. Yeah I mean there's some. I guess the being a kid of the suburb. There's something not unsurprising that that peop- from Long Island and that excess and out is like is out in Florida yeah those two sort of like stylistic branches and yeah those coming together and and also like very few collaborations that they did. Yeah so soundcloud rap quote quote unquote given where x was moving towards in two thousand seventeen twenty eighteen and where people was in two thousand seventeen twenty sixteen ends up kind of being little bit punk little bit emotional definitely melodic Lo fi lo fi somewhere on the lo fi to totally abrasive spectrum. Yes somewhere in there and that ends up becoming more of the standard than the kind of like. Yeah heavy hitting Ronnie Jason Basically like the early Ronnie j stuff ended up becoming like archive will. Yeah like that you're correctly pointing out like the split. That sort of happens whereas like that's sort of gets left behind and the more logic path that sort of that that ends up surviving living. which doesn't seem that surprising the era of drake where it's like this decade? It's like I noticed some speaking of people on twitter. I mean I know. Some people don't like to admit that Drake influence music look at all because that is not surprising that if you have a more abrasive sound in a more melodic sound in the twenty ten debt that's the more melodic sound ends up winning winning out. I mean the same thing was happening. Even almost ten years of chief Keith. Chief Keith was going on two different kind of Pop music and ultimately ended up fearing toward the more melodic pop but what people picked up and influence in this as we hear Jews world if the Melodic Path Jassem abrasive unless you go to rolling line in which case you like Finito lyrics tattooed you have gas asked what I smoke tattooed across your chest. I mean that the an only child. That's a slightly different which is interesting because it's not as big. There's a few artists and a few songs. Honghe life the Neto and hit that in hit like that kind of stuff but mostly melodic is sort of watching the ends up winning absolutely and so x and people working kind of in parallel but not really overlapping in any substantive way at least not until after they're done I mean yeah we're getting to the part where people die and this is you know this is an awful way to have to frame an era. I mean you know certainly in ninety six ninety seven when pokka killed like it felt like the end of something you know certainly when Kurt Cobain Dina Fella you know and there is something that was still germinating in this ecosystem system so peop- dies of a accidental overdose twenty seventeen XS murdered last year. Yeah and now juices past I post axe and post Kief in a way but Jews was also and perhaps not surprisingly the biggest pop success. Yeah Yeah let's talk about that. Like juice to me seemed to be the cleanest distillation. It's absorbed everything that happened in twenty fifteen sixteen gene in seventeen and then it was like yes and I make beautiful bop song. I think when all go the same in his book his next big hit lucid dreams came out. I saw a lot of comments people being like. Oh my gosh. The blog post malone which could be a Nucor ific insult or if to me a great compass because this is a post Malone safe-space. Oh I I mean this is good pod but yeah no but but Jews world kind of had sort of a post malone very melodic a very melodic approach to music and I think one of the things that folk singers again a very similar set of other thing. I think one of the things that I think has been spoken to before. A lot of these artists are pulling from a lot of the same influences in much in the same way I think of artists. This is a bit of field but I'll I'm GONNA make it that like the way a hundred gags you can listen to them and feel a thousand different artists. AH INFLUENCE WITH A juice world and post malone you can maybe here folk maybe you can hear rap maybe you can hear like like maybe like nickelback or a creed but you can hear all these different different things because ultimately for a lot of these artists when they are just sort of going on the more melodic row they can hop between these things in the same song or just within like an entire album. You get like Jesus last album got maybe like seventeen different side A little known about a hundred axes. Each of the thousand GECK's of their album title is a different musical influence. I mean on GAC echoed. One means going for. It's just not something they talk about but you know just keep him on so juice world world yes and to your point about the Second World War which I don't think is as effective as the first world record but oh I disagree I like I like them. I think the other thing I think about this era that I will say I think that fans especially younger fans started appreciate more. Is that the cohesiveness of a project is a little bit less less exciting than hearing your favorite artists. Try Different thing after differences so this is called. It's called death rates for love. This is the second regular came out in March. I think March or April. What's a song on here That you think was a good experiment. I like big because big essentially was him being chief Kief and also it has one of my favorite trends of twenty nine thousand nine which is referencing.

I WanNa talk at a little bit of length about what's been happening for the last three or four years. When sound gladder APP became sort of a something you can put in quotes not merely a genre that appeared on the streaming service? But like a sort of standalone stylistic thing then I wanna talk about in the wake of juice. World's passing what can be done. Or what are some options options and someone. I know who cares very deeply about both those things. It was there at the beginning writing about this stuff when I was writing about it a few years ago. That's David Turner. I'm back back. David Back David you know from covering all this stuff in two thousand seventeen and also you know and if you don't know you should know penny fractions actions. Which is his newsletter about streaming business and the music industry's precipitous financial position? David putting out. What are you GonNa chat book this week take a checkbook? That's essentially yes. I only putting out a short essay. That's just called new music. A solution to a GIG economy which will be looking at all the streaming fun. Is it physical yeah I'm counting physical copies tonight. COP that everybody cop. That penny fractions is a newsletter. Subscribe to that please all right David. So we've had had a tumultuous three years and it's important to talk about what was happening in Twenty fifteen in two thousand sixteen that I allowed this movement that we are now kind of like morning a little bit too. I catch fire so I remember this. Maybe early twenty seventeen eighteen for me but you know going on that I know number tour with pump and purpose and at that time I think X. was experts in south Seattle is in jail. Maybe at that time but but I remember just how big it wasn't looking be was at been big for quite some time. Yeah at that point but it was bigger when DJ plated than any other thing That happened in any of those shows that I went to. Let's talk about that era. Uh and kind of what was fomenting especially in south Florida at that time. So you had a you you had little pomp you'd smoke PURP- you had a number a number of these artists that were sort of making a sort of post three six like posts. I'm going to give a shoutout to like bones own and those complicated beat me. Yeah so there are a lot of artists address. My haters right off the ready to go for okay. Fine I mean we're going to save this for five minutes in but to everybody on twitter. Who is bones? Is Vince Xavier Wolf Hive and our water boys hive. Obviously it's it's always very funny on twitter own. People assume that you don't know things that you very much now. So it should be said when I refer to soundcloud rap in the context context of a piece of the New York Times there are quotes around it is a standalone stylistic movement is not simply wrap that appears on soundcloud. It's not simply that it is a stylistic micro moment that was given its most popular expression by what happened from these graders especially especially I mean juices very ends wave. Yeah but especially like X.. Building off of a lot of that stuff that you just talked about and Peop- kind of coming out of the more emo and punk traditions traditions. But yes I am aware no good deed goes unpunished. You spend the whole Sunday in your house. ruminating about young artists taken too soon only for some some kid with three hundred dollars to be like what about bones so yes bones Shasta bones who I learned has a new album out so go go check that out. Yeah yeah go check it out so I wanNA give a shout space goes per. Who's doing all this about almost ten years ago in really predated all a lot of the scene we see in town right and when you talk talk about space goes perp and Raider Klan? Obviously there's overlap between Raider Klan incestual waterboy and then Raider Klan. A lot of that stuff. You say it's post Memphis and so there is a tradition. This is all coming out of tradition. None of this stuff happens in a vacuum in on what happened. That lit a fire in Twenty fifteen twenty sixteen so essentially. What sort of lit a fire with? I guess it was that ex- sort of blew the big one is that x blue look at me like blew up and sort of like if you remember or like the artwork were just sorta like him and it's like half black half blonde braids. His image just sorta became one of the most striking image of the sort of early moment of of Soundcloud uncowed wrap. It was because it was so abrasive. Actually I think that's what was so striking about. The music originally was abrasive it. Well I remember being at a radio station in Greensboro North Carolina and a DJ. which is what? I'm going through emails and sort of found this track and it's like look at me and tried to pronounce execs and touchdowns name fairly got it. But he was like oh I was like Oh have you guys played that and he was like Oh we never play this on the radio no never plays under. No I mean you know the interesting thing about the scene is how did end up. Sort of morphing morphing into something that was quasi melodic while still retaining. This kind of Rawness but certainly that song did not fit with the prevailing trends of the day the post Drake `ISMs and the day no or the early like low pump smoke per it's still a little too rough around the edges at that point.

I'm Natalie Hutchison and next up you'll hear some highlights highlights from the Climate Action Summit where innovators heads of state and other international organizations from various regions of the world have showed up with answers to the secretary-general's general's constant plea for concrete plans on how to combat this global crisis of our time. UN chief into a new parish has been steadfast in his expectations nations for the summit the first of its kind repeatedly urging members to do without grand speeches and instead bring their clear actions on how to build a safer cleaner planet. Senate nearing four years since the world decided on the collective response to lower carbon emissions the two thousand fifteen Paris climate accord member states brought answers to the stage on Monday from the science to the funding representatives explained just how they've committed to greening their cities and implementing sustainable strategies for ensuring their efforts. Don't go to waste from the beginning. I said the ticket to entry is not a beautiful speech but concrete concrete action and you are here with commitments in the lead segment on carbon neutrality. Here's U. N. special envoy for Climate Action Mr it Michael Bloomberg the most important thing that we can do is to phase out coal as fast as possible and we are making progress since we I started beyond coal in two thousand and eleven more than half of the United States is coal plants have closed two hundred ninety seven out of five one hundred and thirty a growing number of US cities and states and businesses have committed to reaching net zero emissions these states would by themselves selves form the world's fourth largest economy next on the stage French President Emmanuel Macron on Climate Finance folks will take on its responsibilities disabilities. We have already ended any new oil exploration on French soil now the second part of this positive agenda. I think we need to have a trade agenda. That serves the climate. It's a gender when we trading. We have to be consistent. I don't want to see new trade. Negotiations Open with countries Tris who running counter to the Paris agreement I think that that would be deeply hypocritical given all of the debates that we continue to have today and also in previous days. We need to have a carbon neutral chill. Europe and we need to have zero imported deforestation. This is essential. This is a deep change. It is a real revolution and it doesn't mean the we don't import certain things but the any imports should have a negative consequence we if there there is a negative consequence in terms of deforestation for example that has to be compensated for if not we'll continue to have fine words but trade agenda that runs counter to those words and on the link between coal phase out and Human Health Executive Director of Clean Air Fund Miss Jane Burston Appalachian Kills Seven million people every year and many millions more Safa with chronic conditions that caused or exacerbated by pollution.

We can make it a human reality. Thank you the turning it over to Costa Rica. The good news is what I thought of this good afternoon secretary-general Excellencies. It is possible for country to support its economy with trysofi coming from one thousand nine percent renewable sources. Is it a possible yes or not oh no. Is it possible for a tropical country that had the highest rate of deforestation in the world in twenty years news to revert that process. Is it possible yes or no is it possible to achieve growth ended the economic wellbeing at the same time as we invest in nature yes or no today what. I want to tell you categorically. Gorki is that the answer is yes. Yes we can do it. Yes it is possible because Costa Rica as a middle income. Come country has been able to do this. There is no excuse for countries with more resources and possibilities to do the same Carlos over although cassava president of Costa Rica getting down to the Science Prime Minister of Iceland up next Iceland's electricity and heating now comes one hundred percent from renewable. Was this hard work. Yes did it cost of course arse but clean energy transformation was perhaps our best investments in terms of both the economy and the quality of life and I am convinced at the investment we are making now in implementing an energy shift in our transport system is going to be vital to fight the climate crisis but also going to be we are very good investment for our society and our economy in Iceland we have lost ninety five percent of our loans since settlements and health of the fragile child canucks soil and we are now reversing this our island is getting greener this year the government launched new projects to heal the land and soak up carbon from the from spirit at the same time using innovation to pump carbon dioxide underground transforming carbon dioxide into solid minerals in Bass soft rock speaking for small islands often bearing the brunt of climate change Barbados Prime Minister Mia a more motley. The science is clear and the the evidence is even clearer that the lives of our people have been lost and properties abandoned and these tell the story far better than any speech. We can make this great hall the basis. The Alliance of Small Island states needs to keep temperatures this increases in this global community to less than one point five to stay alive. not this rave but to stay alive.

It's the world can make it possible to have driverless cars then we surely can find it possible to be able to saying that technology to halt and reverse this climate crisis secretary general.

Who is more important to the Dallas Cowboys: Ezekiel Elliott or DeMarcus Lawrence?
"Would you say is more important to the success of the dallas cowboys ezekiel elliott demarcus lawrence simple question well. I would say this is zeke elliott but for reasons that aren't as apparent. He had seventy seven catches ashes. He's a factor in their passing and we we agree. Zeke light is more valuable to the dallas cowboys and demarcus lawrence marcus lawrence pete over twenty million dollars. A year out of context is everything zeke. Elliott has two more years on his contract. He has no place to go. They could franchise him after that so that is a big look. He's really important but where else this is he gonna go. He has two years remaining. That's what makes it hard and it's not just the two years remaining the to franchise tag after that third franchise tag if they wanted so you could make the argument that dallas controls zeke's rights for five more seasons and get ice about until he decides through the collateral damage and all of this is the play the teammate you sitting there you you know nancy. We had the preseason bahamas. You're now. Everybody's focus week. One game plan in for the giants here. We're planning for the giants. We're getting ready for a divisional opponent and our best player has named reported. You know how much of a down of that is going into the the season will all everyone has all this optimism because everyone's owino right every it's a clean slate for everyone. You had a data zeke elliott. There hasn't ed's reporting and damian from a player's perspective. Here's the other thing anybody could get zeke elliott signed. That's the easy part. The context is dot prescott amari cooper byron aaron jones and starring see so you want your teammate in there but in the back of your mind as veteran. You're like wait a second. How much of the pies left for me so you have to really artful in terms of saying well. I got to be able to get jailing smith signing because he can't leave the marcus lawrence of good pass rusher but i gotta leave enough money for these other players because the starting quarterback he can't go anywhere. He may not happy elite but they've won. A lot of games with the sky is one. We'll say mike and i'm sorry but this is the dallas cowboys for for building team around zeke elliot. You look out of the dallas. Cowboys are constructed. They are like one of the few teams that their bill ronald running back. Okay so dallas cowboys put themselves in this position right now and now they're paying the piper because zeke elliott zeke elliott has perform and then maybe the top running back in the national football. He sees what the future is running running back position and he's sitting there saying i'm not i need it. I need to withhold services right now if i don't do it right now. I'm never going to get paid like like the other top running back. You're the best argument you can make for zeke elliott. They were fifth in the n._f._l. Last year and time of possession translate look at their defense. They were top five defense because they were never on the field. There were twenty two point scored but zeke elliott kept the their defense off the field bottom line. What's the eleventh-hour in this. I think that once you get to next week next week we get past monday or so monday or tuesday not complete the opener which again juries now bracing for an expecting and i think the problem with this situation with melvin gordon the longer it goes on the more things are said the more issues pop up we already heard jerry jones one say zeke coup which basically insulted zeke as agent so these things going. You never expected last year. After a couple of weeks. Steelers offensive lineman would be critical levian bell and they were and that inflamed the situation association and led to hurt feelings and eventually led to levy on bell sitting out the year so once you get this far into the game and they're so many sides with so much at stake everything is very personal sensitive and it's very risk but there there's a big distinguishment here. Fear does the work of reason. Maybe i'm bell was a free agent. J._v. soundcloud can be free agent. Zeke elliott's going anywhere at some point. He has to be reasonable because if he wants to play football is going to be all you with that but what i would say to you there is this in the next time zeke elliott steps on the football field he has he's not gonna be out there until he gets new contract when it gets a new contract what's the guarantees on that you tell me why would he stepped foot on fulfill. Find me take who am i sell it. I'm not stepping foot on a football field until i have my thirty forty whatever the number raising guaranteed millions of dollars and i'm not risking myself getting an a._c._l. Injury were some kind of career threatening injury. That would damage value. You keep your three point eight million dollars dollars this year. You keep defines. They come with that. We'll see how it goes if i'm sitting out the season and not playing and there are questions every day season to sabotage and if i'm jerry jones is stephen stephen jones. I'm betting on my offense align. I'm betting on good quarterback. I'm getting on the return of jason witten and every game i win. I'm more voted in my position and that's how why this whole thing is gonna implant and i've been in that situation. I'm like boy. We hold up without the role rears omnitel his agent we can but that's what kept me up at night and that's really where the cowboys are can only pollard pass protect. I promise you the first time that he gives up a sack. That's gonna put more money in zeke. Elliott's pocket and that's why i said at the beginning zeke elliott is right. The dallas cowboys right. Both sides are right now. The question is figuring out a solution that works for everybody that helps them save their season and help zeke. They don't either talk about it again on monday today to announce they are inactive ninety minutes before kick-off. I'm saying the eleventh hours like ninety one minutes as long as as long as he can get sign on that day on sunday before kick-off saturday four o'clock right he'd have to be in a roster exempt. It's a great point susan because they could get roster exemption so maybe they could sign him. He could work out for a couple of days but it'd be saturday and then as you're limit though

Lil Nas X's 'Old Town Road' Is on a Record-Breaking Run
"Just a few short months ago. Montero Lamar hill, also known as Lil NAS x put together a beat. He got from YouTube and some other samples and some funny lyrics he wrote to go with the banjo that was in the music. He was using and he recorded them in his closet in his house. He posted it on soundcloud. It was used by some folks in a tick tock video and old town road became one of the most popular songs in the world today. Eventually Billy Ray Cyrus got a hold of it. And he said, I wanna be a part of that song as well. And now all town road is on the top of the charts. If you ask, what the number one song in the world is old town road, if you want your video to go viral, you've include old town road in the video? No, no. That's, that's not what I'm doing right now. No, that's not the the. You can't go anywhere without hearing old town road being played. It's one of the most popular songs in recent history, and it all started as a viral Meam on tick tock, so little NAS, x put together the song and uploaded into soundcloud. It was noticed by some tick, tock influencers, who thought it would be interesting for a new video challenge, this old town road challenge got super popular, and people were doing it over and over again, on tick tock, until radio stations and people like that started noticing the song playing it on the radio and it began climbing the charts on Spotify and other places until now it's number one in the world. Billy Ray Cyrus got involved after the country, charts kick the song off because it doesn't sound country enough. And now, it'd be really hard to present any form of argument to say that it doesn't belong on some sort of chart based on popular alone. Here's why this is interesting for family tech blog dot com in for an internet safety. Expert and for you as a parent, we've transitioned to are now the means are influencing offline culture. A song got so popular because of memes on tick tock, the now it is the number one song in the world and artist who nobody knew three months ago is now one of the most popular rappers on the planet. His social media fame has skyrocketed and a country star, who to the most recent generations was only famous because of his daughter is now on the minds of millions and millions of young people all over the world. I'm not going to sing the song because of copyright, but also because it will get stuck in your in my head, and you will never forgive me. But if you want to hear old town road, go check it out on Spotify or on YouTube. It's not super interesting. But it super duper. Catchy.

Those were the opening lines of the legendary nineteen seventies TV show. Welcome back kotter where the main character played by Gabe Kaplan returns to his New York City high school to become a teacher. Our next guest has done the reverse Kelley rube. We grew up loving horses and upstate New York grew up to become a middle school science teacher and then left. That stable career to return to the stables on TV, Mr. Qatar dealt with a group of teenage guys who seemed comically incapable of maturing into adults Kelly rudely now a thoroughbred trainer has an equine version of a teenager as three year olds in the spring, basically are, but this guy has done some growing up in the last few months, always mining. We'll have to make a three wide bid and he's willing to do. It always finding up to try for gold as Zinni off the scene now in position less than three alongs to go and always mining now in front from try for goal turning for home in Federica Teissier sakes, all ways mining set down and opens up a four length lead on try for goal always mining with a six now a seven Lang lead always mining robbing home past the Laura line and headed to the Preakness always mining comes into the Preakness on a six race winning streak albeit in races. Quite as rigorous as those on the Kentucky, Derby trail, none the less. The three year old gelding is answered the rhetorical question about dreams that you hear on welcome back kotter who'd have thought they lead you back here where we need you and buy back here. We mean to Maryland where Kelly ruble is based at fair hill with a chance to claim one of the American spring classics, and we welcome trainer Kelly ruby here too in the gate. This horse has made twelve starts already maximum security. Maybe you've heard of him has made five including that whole Kentucky Derby thing. The last nine of always mining starts have come in laurel in the last six of those have been wins, all enlisted or overnight stakes. What's been your philosophy on how to bring them along? He he was purchased by my current owners after his maiden win. So he's only been with me since he ran on the grass in Maryland last summer. So, you know, we've kind of just strategically followed the past the Maryland route tickets where we're at today. What mood the light bulb turn on forum last October when this winning streak started? I wish I could answer that. He's always been a very nice horse. I mean anyone is made nicely. I think the goal was always to stretch out. And they were very limited races for two year olds when we ran them on the grass. So after that we also have to just sit tight and wait till they had a route race for us. And obviously he relished the mile you grew up in central New York, which is not exactly horse country. I know I went to Syracuse. What made you even want to get involved with horses up in that perpetual league gray bleak part of the world. I don't know. I guess it was ever since I could walk or talk I'll ever wanted to do with the around horses. So it was just naturally in me. But yes, it was a little limited. I started writing at a quarter horse barn actually started competing on the quarter horse survey doing jumpers and hunters and from there, but an event horse and started shipping down to the Maryland, Pennsylvania area. And that's kind of how I ended up in the air. Area fair hill. But listen to your parents, you earn two master's degrees. Two masters degrees. It became a middle school science teacher. Now, first of all, they're possibly be a more draining job in the world. And being a middle school teacher. I actually really enjoyed that age the students are you know, there's just starting to develop themselves much like a young horse. So I thought they were a lot of fun. But yes, it's exhausting, and it wasn't necessarily something. I could see myself doing in the future. Which is why I went back and got my second masters for administration inside that for three years. And then decided you know, what horses are meant to be. We what happens you were wearing a suit as an administrator and everything and did you just have an piffle. Or was it a gradual thing it was gradual? You know, even when I was teaching. I went into the administration because the fact that I'd already voted so much of my time, and my education towards the education were also what could I do move up the ladder in that respect? So I tried the administrative row and decided that it was just for me it allowed more flexible hours than my current job. But it just wasn't something. I had a passion for jelly rudely. Rainer of Preakness contender always mining. Joining us here on the gate now before you get to fair hill, which you mentioned you leave teaching school for FOX hunting in Pennsylvania. Is that a thing that was just a job to kind of regroup and see what I was going to do with my life. But yes, I was managing harm, and we accented I we didn't really have an opportunity in where I grew up. I never FOX hunted in my life. So it was a unique experience in something that I greatly enjoy. But it also got me my start with Barclay tag here at their hill. How I started galloping for him here. He had a string at fair hill and my gal for him and then eventually moved up to become his assistant. How do you go from FOX hunting and Pennsylvania to fair hill and being an exercise rider? Well, I mean that job was just pretty much to move me to this area to figure out what I was going to do. And that's. When I met Parkway and became an exercise rider for them with the goal that I would eventually become an assistant and kind of learn the horse racing world from the ground up. What did your parents say about what you chosen to do? With those two masters degrees. They were not thrilled. They still think I'm a little nuts. And the fact that you know, I work seven days a week. And I haven't had a day off and many years, but we've had a little bit of success. They're starting to kind of be what my my goal was a long, and they're you know, they're coming around. But still it wasn't ideal in there is at the time. Well in light of that. How nervous will you when you finally decided to go out on your own? I wouldn't say I was nervous. You know? It was a goal, and I like I'm somewhat of a driven person. And so I had a goal. And I knew when I became an assistant as the idea was to learn as much as I could to have an eventual string of my own, and you know, it came around gradually and worked I way into it. And so it was just a natural flow. Really? I'm guessing you're hoping that the success of always mining will lead to more business how big a stable do you have? And how big would you like it to be? I have about forty horses in training right now. We've had more in the past. I'm a very hands on person. I checked every horse's legs every morning. So I don't know how we'd like to go. We'd like to continue to improve the stable and have a nice allowance level stable. So you know, it just depends on I don't know that there's a magic number to stop at. It's just when I feel like I can't stand up everything that I'm going to have to take a minute and relook at it. It is always morning still in control leads almost two legs. From is six furlongs twelve three sixty s lift to go with like the distances. No problem at all. For always finding always minding kept attest opening up a half dozen on Joey his second and tai-bo third. Always mining wants to run all day, always minding to win it by six or so we've talked on this show recently about the stickiness of the future of the Preakness. But considering that always mining. Is one six in a row with loyal race course and made nine of his twelve career starts there. I'm guessing you personally wouldn't be too opposed to running the Preakness there this year. This year. That'd be perfect. That's going to happen. I mean, how concerned are you that he can bring his race track with him? Even though it's still in the state of Maryland. Actually, I think the Tenneco course going to set him up nicely. It's got a nice long stretch. And he just has a very large scale thing stride. So I I I don't see this the track change to be a problem. We're going to have to do it. Eventually, then I'm guessing you don't mind seeing that just about all of the top derby contenders are going elsewhere now that plays well for us, absolutely more. We certainly wish you the best of luck here. Kelly ruby. Thank you so much for sharing a few minutes with us. Thank you. Thank you haven't. We're going to take our first break here on in agape when we come back. It's time to revisit that whole d Q rule and how it's interpreted on guessing, you know, why we need a refresher. So go

Thank you ramming me, by the way, although I'm co hosting so, yeah, let's go to I love having. You wanna thank you. Appreciate it. Yeah. So Star Wars celebration happened and one of the things that was announced was a new video game. It's called Star Wars jet. I've fallen order on law and order don't. Sorry. Sorry. I'm not a video games expert. I don't know if you guys could tell hey, we we're always welcoming new new people who to the fold, so please I'm more than happy introduced stuff. This is is set after the events of episode three of installers Kanter, venue, the sip. It follows this order sixty six that, you know, obviously is to wipe out all the Djeddai. I know. So I it's focused on that story line. What I find interesting though is the studio that's making it. It is studio called respond entertainment, the founders of that helped create call of duty. They also created a couple of really high profile games most recently one called apex legends. Which isn't that the new fortnight? It is basically the big fortnight rival. So and has gotten a lot of buzz. So seeing them attached to this project is very fascinating. It also has believe one of the minds behind God of war, which is another popular adventure series. So there are a lot of high profile names involved. So it looks like it's gonna be really good. The only drawback is EA has not been the best steward of the Star Wars license lately. And they're battlefront games have gotten a lot of flack. So there's a little bit of like uncertainty about what are we going to get here? But again Star Wars video game, very promising. Okay. Quick off the top of your head. What's your favorite stores game ever? Okay. Okay. So I'm going kind of off the grid because there's so many about Djeddai, but I went with Star Wars Republican Mando which came out in two thousand five and it's set during the clone wars at it features this commando unit, basically, and it's on a team based in doing all these missions on different planets in the Star Wars universe like cash, and Cachique and other places. It was a lot of fun. I really liked it Star Wars the reputation video games is kinda hit or miss. So this is one of the really good ones. So I'm picking Republic commando. All right.

"Right partner to produce an amazing festival. A do you think that there's something really interesting there? We just haven't been able to to commit to yet. It's definitely that's interesting from your perspective because you are a platform. You really have every genre of music uploading every tiny niche of hip, hop or every other type of music. It's like if you were to address one directly if you were to do a festival God, I can't imagine a bigger headache because everybody's gonna wanna be represented, and it's going to be impossible to make everybody happy. It'd be like Facebook doing a festival, you know? It's like today invite they got they got every part of of the world being represented on there. Yeah. It is. It is. It's an interesting creative challenge. I mean, we hear it. I was actually just reading something yesterday. I'm trying to remember what the publication was. But actually that a lot of booking agents, even in setting up shows, I think it might have been a part of re deaf that the newsletter is that they're actually taking what they described as almost like a soundcloud approach where combining emerging hop even like punk rock deejays like all on one Bill because it's very very diverse experience. Because it's you know, it's a lot of fans are used to in the digital world. Like people just aren't, you know, into just solely one John Rudd. And it is it's got to be. It would definitely be an interesting challenge for us to actually book that Bill governor when you hear about all these complications of Facebook has been dealing with like unlimited controversies related to user privacy and information being sold the different brands and stuff. What does the overall soundcloud mentality on user's privacy in there? Mation because you guys are clearly I would think dealing with like huge amounts of information that might be useful to advertisers. What's what's the line of thinking on that privacy is is a really important topic for us and for all for all digital? And particularly those of us who are two sided platforms where you have contributors as well as consumers, and so, you know, it's something that we take very seriously, particularly with our roots is as a Europe a European based company. So soundcloud was founded in Berlin remains, you know, our headquarters, and where we send our product and engineering efforts and with with legal frameworks like GDP are in in Europe, which is generally ahead of the US in terms of the the formality of its privacy laws. So so we're generally something that we focus on a lot something we take very seriously. And and you know, we we remain up. Today on the all of the statutes. And then in addition, look our goal is always have as supportive ambassador as a community as possible. So, you know, it's something that I think the world is really evolving quite rapidly here. And I think I want to believe in in a positive direction where you know, we're we're all taking privacy. Very seriously trying to provide powerful tools while also trying to create communities that are ultimately, you know, about a positive a positive mission. Definitely on a lot of the fans, the younger fans in particular. They seem kind of baffled and fascinated by the idea that they could actually make money off soundcloud. Would you be able to explain like the quick version of how exactly they go about that since so many of them don't seem to understand how that works exactly shore? So here's how it works to monetize on soundcloud, which is so you do need you'd you need a. Pro or pro unlimited account on. So those are one of our paid services for creators. Now, those accounts come with a whole suite of features baked into them. We'd just only recently added monetization and then distribution. And we've added those at no additional costs. So, you know, have club pro account or pro unlimited account. Once you have that account, you can enable.

"Signed deals. We just wanna do everything that helps the crater grow. Right. You're I mean, I should probably clarify this point that I'm not in any way being paid for this interview or anything, but I do have to admit that we we host star the audio version of our podcast on soundcloud, and then it feeds directly from soundcloud into the I tunes or the apple podcasting app and everything like that. And it works incredibly well, would you compare? The would you compare that experience to what you're trying to offer to creators where you guys can just sort of be a one stop shop to upload stuff, and then it's allowed to travel from there. Yeah. That's great. As a great analogy. And I will. We appreciate you using the service. And and the girl is take feedback on how we can improve it. And I think for the podcasting side, you know, there's there's some interesting things for us to think in the future. But this today, this is about music, but you yes, the same exact way that you think about podcasting, which is soundcloud is the very best. Simplest place to host your audio podcasting music center, and then set it up so that it can be really consumed the world over because it's not only about pushing out into other stores. Right. One of the things that make soundcloud very powerful is our embed player has since the beginning the idea that you can embed a track really simply and seamlessly in any browser anywhere. And know that it's gonna play back. That's one of the core. Values of southbound. So yes, same exact idea with with with you, and your podcast is is a simple powerful place to host it. So that it can be available in discovered all over world..

"I've seen that the decision play out with a lot of like up and coming soundcloud artists where maybe they have, you know, a couple of hundred thousand or a million followers on soundcloud, and then eventually they get to the point where either because the labels putting pressure on them to to make more money from streams or the label just wants to concentrate all their plays on Spotify or apple music. So they have to make that decision to either maybe they put the single on soundcloud, and then the other sons are on the other services. But I think that it makes a lot of sense. Like if possible if soundcloud Ken allow artists to go upstream, so it could be their first place to to put their content, and then also allow it to grow into a bigger space from there if you guys could facilitate making that that transition as easy as possible than I feel like that would kinda ensure the future of soundcloud in a way. Well, look, I appreciate that. I mean, that's exactly how we feel about it. You know, our our goal is to make things as easy as possible for creators to build their careers, build their audiences and look at not only means we occurred creators like you should be you should be as many platforms as possible. So that you have the opportunity to build your audience as widely as possible. Club were always gonna make a very distinct environment. Because not only is it is it the easiest place. Just as you put it for creator to get their work in the world. By its nature, we attract a very different type of fan, right? We're much younger audience. We have an honest. It's very passionate about discovery. So that that idea I goes both ways we want to be the first place that creator share their work with the world. And we also want to be that first place where passionate music listeners really go to discover something truly new and become a part of that that artist journey early on interact with them in a way that you're just not going to get in kind of the the mass streaming music store. So the soundcloud experience is a very distinct one, but we want to make it as easy as possible for creators to grow to getting them into other stores. We think makes total sense just in the same way that we think it's awesome. When when artist on signed label deals, right? We get out. Sometimes we trying to be label, and we're not we're a platform for creators put their work in the world generate earnings generate audience generate data because what we find also is if your label. You also benefit from seeing artists that have traction. Right. So the artists benefits by showing a label that they can get traction. And then the label benefits by being able to invest in things that they see momentum around. So again for us at soundcloud. Whether it's getting them, another stores, helping artists get discovered and ultimately.

Soundcloud rappers not a good like when your parents are like, so what they want you to be like a Harvard doctor, right or. Yeah, I don't think soundcloud is the place to go. Maybe try. Okay. Cupid or tender. Soundcloud wrappers, I guess, what is being nineteen? I've completely forgotten. You're like, I'll do. Yeah, you're like, I want to have fun with my life. Will I guess that's me being judgmental of a soundcloud rapper in Callao all sunk law rapper, it's obvious putting them in a box because they're not all like the little pumps and the Los Angeles. Might be other ones who are different. But if we're talking about wrapping, if this is the one that you're talking about, people really good at wrapping then greater, don't do it because these folks are not worth it. I'm just saying, I hope that answers your question, but if he's got a twenty million dollar apple deal will apple music and consider it. Tim, one of that'd be nice. So funny, twenty million. Yeah. You gotta give us like three tapes we go. Here's okay. Sure. You ready? Sure. There's a whole bunch of other stuff too, but, yeah. All right, you're, here's, here's my concern. That's pretty major.

"And when i think how much is the career of low pump worth i wonder is it worth the hundred and sixty odd million dollars that was recently used to bail soundcloud there's only one person on the planet i wanna talk about these things with matched gem were them hi jenna what upjohn john is a staff writer for the new york times magazine in a cohost of still processing and she's here for some bonus process a is outlawed abaza's a list i like that that's good so jenny you wrote a couple of weeks ago in the magazine you wrote a little bit what's happening with songklot if you can set up before we kinda get to the bigger questions set up a little bit what the tension that was happening over soundcloud was that column was about what happens if a service like soundcloud goes away not really worrying so much about the business practices of the company and end what their financial management skills look like i mean they seem from the outside to not grace eyes so he allo lull thighs whole disorganized but but really what does it mean when culture an internet culture and digital culture is tied to a business strategy and tied to a platform and tied to something that they don't control the culture has no control in two opposite forces at play you have the creative force coming up from that for me from the bottom on of all these individuals who are sort of putting their hopes in their dreams and their creativity onto a platform whatever it is soundcloud vine youtube whatever and then you have a company who is basically trying to find craven ways of monetize aging right all of those individual little energy is yeah and so the concern with soundcloud it was announced story was leaked that soundcloud was about to run out of money.

"At during all of this soundcloud still managed to really should itself in the foot when it comes to trying to find a profitable business model in july of 2017 company had to lay off forty percent of its staff that meant one hundred seventy three people lost their jobs and soundcloud closed down two of its offices the ones in london and san francisco which meant that only its offices in berlin in new york city would remain open at that time soundcloud would only say that the company had enough money to last through the fourth quarter of 2017 which many took as a sign that the company would be out of money by the end of the year tech pundits then began to suggest that the vultures were circulating soundcloud as a result in august 2017 soundcloud was known to have entered talks with potential investors about a nother round of venture capital funding this would be series f of funding it was at this time that people in the tech news fear began to say that unless someone swooped in soundcloud was doomed but swoop they did and boy how the it was with a big change the swoop happened in mid august an investment bank headquartered in new york called rained group and a singapore state owned investment fund called timothy sec provided the moolah that was that hundred sixty nine point five million bucks i mentioned earlier in this episode with this investment also came some changes at the top for soundcloud there were demands for some changes at the executive level.

"Sony withdrew artists from soundcloud of two thousand fifteen which was the same year that universal music group began working on a licensing agreement with soundcloud in return for what business insider reported was a quote significant chunk of equity end quote in the company now this would allow other people to actually do those remakes is a mashups because of the licensing agreements and it also followed in the footsteps of warner music warner music had actually made the same sort of agreement back in november two thousand fourteen for a five percent stake in soundcloud the negotiations with universal music group took some time it started in 2015 but it was announced as an official partnership until january twenty six team the agreements did have some benefits for users because with those mashups remix is getting the licensing meant that people could actually practise their their skills and upload work without fearing of being pulled down for copyright infringement so people were all on the up and up here now i did also mean that if you own the copyright to a certain song you could get the monetisation for that instead of the person who made the remarks that was an issue so there are still kind of a mess because not everybody had the same deal and sometimes you might be mixing artists from two different labels so it wasn't like everything was smooth sailing from that point forward around that time spotify began to express an interest in acquiring soundcloud but it would also back off from the deal following twitter's lead in a way it was because spotify was looking at initial public offering a getting involved in an acquisition just before an ipo would mean that it could potentially scare off investors says spotify ultimately said you know what while i would like to remove competition from this field and get access to some of sound clouds technology i'm not sure it's worth the risk to investment if we actually go for an ipo.

"Uh that gave soundcloud a huge advantage because they could be everywhere instead of forcing users to go to a centralised location to experience music so you didn't have to log into soundcloud to listen to sound club files he could encounter a soundcloud file on any website at all if you had abandoned you wanted a few of your songs to be available on your website for people to listen to ditch could just stream it while they're they're viewing your site you could use a soundcloud and vegtable player to stream that music and you're fans will be able to listen to it on top of that uploading attract soundcloud would generate a unique you are l that you could then share on various social platforms like twitter and that helped musicians promote specific tracks and encouraged sharing online making music is already challenging but making your music discoverable is an even bigger challenge there's so much content going up online all the time and finding a way to reach your potential audience gets harder with every minute of content that's uploaded to the internet these strategies help put soundcloud on the path to becoming the youtube of audio files every minute 12 hours of audio content joined the vast amount of audio already on soundcloud now that is dwarfed by the amount of video content that is going up on youtube every minute but still pretty impressive all on its own one of the features in soundcloud is that you could leave a comment about an audio track and even have that comment associated with a specific moment in the track itself so the tracks on soundcloud are represented as wave forms you see the way form and you see the progress go from left to right as you play the track it starts to highlight the track as it's going down the time line of this audio track meanwhile you can leave a comment at any point along the track to say something about how that track made an impression on you or what you felt about the choices the artist was making and it'll actually show up at that point along the track and people can read your comments and see what you had to say about it in digested decide whether they agree with you or they don't agree with you and it's actually a really cool feature i like it a lot.

"Be a noble failure earlyon rather than continue on for years and years and years continuing to gather investment funds but yet not being able to turn a profit is that really the case it's hard to say because the story of soundcloud isn't over yet getting back to that story in two thousand nine wired cited soundcloud as a credible threat to another buzek based social platform that was on line one called my space hey do you remember my space i didn't episode about it actually i think i've done more than one episode about my space but yeah nice base used to be a thing guys and soundcloud helped bury it though i really think any reasonable person would point at facebook as the real reason my space ultimately floundered and and these days no one really talks about it at all even though it's tried to reinvent itself a couple of times since then soundcloud i would say would be an additional blow like a little kick on my space when it was down after facebook had delivered the massive body slam uh so soundcloud had all the musical aspects of my space more or less something that could duplicate my spaces ability to allow artists to upload their music to a platform and soundcloud actually made it much easier for you to get your music everywhere else because of their approach are they were also seeing a lot of success with recognize artist joining soundcloud groups like sonic youth or musicians like moby were using soundcloud to promote tracks or entire albums back was also using soundcloud to reach fans online and one of the things that really set soundcloud apart was that you could embed a soundcloud player into another website you would just get some code that you would put into the hd amount of your website and that would create a little player inside the the confines of the website you had built and within that player you could play the tracks that you were uploading to soundcloud.

"Seat series aaa and future rounds are more about growing a company so that it can scale up to a certain level so in return the investors get a type of stake in the company they're investing in usually it's they top of preferred stock called series a stock and while there are some variations in this typically if you were to buy series a stock in a private company should that private company ever hold an initial public offering and turn into a publicly traded company you are series ace stock would convert into common stock so if you owned a certain percentage of the company because you had funded it in this round of venture capital funding you would get that equivalent amount of ownership in common stock if that company went public and then you could say all right well i'm ready to walk away maybe you're making a profit now because the amount of investment you made versus the amount of value the company has what's goes through its ipo you might have made event or maybe you lost money on a dull depends on how well the company is receive when it goes through that ipo process it is a moot point without clouded stayed private it's probably a good idea to take a little tangent here talk about the realities of getting money in the started up space as a startup company because there's so many tech companies these days that trace their roots back to being a startup i mean there are some big monolithic companies have been around for decades or even a century or more in the technology space but soundcloud provides a good example of how this can work though explain how some details of changed over the years to make it more complicated today so we begin with this round of seedfunding this is typically a relatively small amount of investment money men the grand scheme of things and we're talking about a few hundred thousand dollars typically enough to get a business up and running from basically nothing at all no unless you're new business has a killer way to generate significant revenue right out of the gate you're probably not going to be profitable at least at first you might need to scale up before you can put your business plan into play so.
