"The only way you're going to build fan base on spotify is if you already popping somewhere else let you to or soundcloud or facebook or instagram. Or tick tock on twitter and you typically won't need all your social media platforms to blow up on spotify 'cause like all artists data blowing up on spotify already. Bow down already. Established artists only establish autism blowing up on spotify and cloud. Is you know. Another thing is soundcloud. You're able to upload your music to soundcloud directly yourself Spotify that's not the case you have to upload it to a distributor and the distributor since it to spotify so any platform that you can't control your content directly right. There uploaded edited deleted. You can't bill families and soundcloud upload use it also somebody comments on your soundcloud saw you can like the comment and you can reply to the comet. Where is that. Where can people comment spotify. That's the day another thing. If people can't comment on your music you can't really build fan day step it. They can't comment on using. There's nobody engaging in common you can't really blow up build fan base there so all. The artists are popular. Spotify are basically artists data. Already popping. Spotify adding spotify like fm radio. Spotify is the online version of death. Radio spotify only cares about ours that have an established fan base survey because those are ours. Data-gathering going to bring listeners to list those artists that the people are going to listen to players. I can guarantee. Ain't nobody going rat. Caviar platelets to see some. The unsigned hardest is on there. That has you know ten to twenty thousand listeners. About if you're not getting added iraq caviar if you don't typically got you know close to a million listeners.

Jack Dorsey's Square has reportedly expressed interest in buying Jay-Z's music streaming platform, Tidal
"We're gonna talk financials. And i'm going to go broad in a minute but first i wanted to get your thoughts on this story involving square which are reports. The jack dorsey is interested in buying title. Which is a music music streaming service. I never heard of before today. Look jack dorsey has said in the past. He's interested in building on the square platform to offer other services. Music streaming doesn't strike me as an obvious natural fit. But what was your reaction when you saw this story. I mean my initial reaction is probably right on right on par with yours there. It doesn't seem like the doesn't seem like the first place. I would go if we're looking to build out this this square commerce ecosystem. I appreciate what he's saying what he's thinking about wanting to do longer term with with the business and with with the platform with with what square offers and i think a lot of this kind of around the cash maybe but yeah i mean it title is is. I've heard that before never subscribed to it just as a music streaming service. They it was built on the idea that high fidelity sound in artists owning the music would perhaps be a differentiator and maybe a time ago that was at least the high fidelity but not anymore. I mean you're seeing companies from amazon and spotify to apple all investing in that same level of level of delivery there so You know there's anything with title that makes me think. Oh wow that's some big differentiator that makes me wanna consider dropping my spotify subscription. Because they don't have even anywhere close to the catalog spotify as or apple for that matter. In when you look at the actual business i mean they. They don't have anywhere near the subscribers. Man i think that number around two thousand and sixteen title reported somewhere in the neighborhood of three million subscribers which is just a fraction just as a just a fraction of what you'd find on spotify and apple and really that is one of the biggest advantages with with that line of work and music streaming as the size of your customer base But i mean the economics of music streaming are still very difficult so to me this. This reminded me a lot of mean a little while back if you recall twitter in this matters because jack dorsey is also the ceo twitter and understand the two very different businesses but same leader Twitter invested soundcloud. And they were actually kicking around acquiring soundcloud at one point and they decided not to do that instead through their twitter ventures They made i think. Seventy million dollar investment in soundcloud which quickly evaporated two zero. They pretty much and they just wrote the whole thing off because it was just nothing you could really do with that and in regard to square. I mean you remember. They had the caviar side of business a little. While back in food delivery they decided to go ahead and sell that to door dash in order to focus more on investing in its core payments business and at the time that made a lot of sense and that actually is a pretty good investment foursquare given that. They bought caviar for just under fifty million dollars and sold at the door dash for just a little over four hundred million so so that worked at. I agreed selling caviar just made sense. It wasn't something that really lined up with the rest of squares business at the time and there were clearly companies out there. That are doing it better. This kind of seems the same thing to me. It just doesn't really line up with squares. Business companies out there. That are doing it way. Better die worse is a thing. You gotta be really careful. It's gonna be interesting to see if they proceed with this because there's a price at which it's worth. The risk square is a one hundred billion dollar company. They have access to all kinds of capital. I don't a particular price in mind but there is probably less than five hundred million probably a good place to start. I mean there's there's a price at which dorsey overpays and it spooks investors and there's a price at which is a reasonable amount of money and if it pays off great and if not well we write it down. Yeah i the biggest risk here is. It's not a financial one. I don't think i mean to me. I would imagine this has to be far far under five hundred million. I think if i recall correctly. Jay z bought title at some point for fifty six million dollars in five years. So i mean it would be very hard pressed to argue that they've been witnessing some just exponential growth that would just pump that valuation up to new heights today. Give an even even with everything we've seen in the market where it seems like the more. The more money company loses the higher. The market wants to bid up at stock price. I don't know that would necessarily be the same case with title at imagine. The the biggest risk is not a financial one squares. Got the balance sheet. Pretty much do whatever they want. They can certainly afford it to me. It's really more about taking your eye off the ball and making bad investments.
The greatest passport is my camera
"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

"Because there's like a block there. There's a lot of factors go into it like I know how to play the instrument and I know what those notes are but it doesn't mean like what I'm about to play. Is Correct. Like what's actually there I feel like in that sense, it would be like you know how to play the You know how to play the instrument you're able to play the instrument, but could you write music? No I'm not like I'm not creative enough to come up with an original piece like I'm just more or less the mouthpiece for the the writer supposer. So. Is that Iq? Iq the, you would need. To Have A. Better. Creative sense to be able to. Write. The music. I don't think so. You know numerous soundcloud robbers here who think that they're fucking like God's gift to there's a reason they're soundcloud rappers not. I've always wanted a long time. I have found people on soundcloud that I just dig their music and I can only find their music on soundcloud. Right. There, music is extremely good. Have they not popped off? Because not everybody likes the same genre or like music they you do. Well. I think nowadays, it comes down to you don't get exposure with whatever you do if you start up a podcast in you're getting freaking. Jack Black. andrus antenna or whatever his name is. Charlie, Sheen? Like big names on your podcast. that. Doesn't in it's a great podcast that doesn't mean that you're GONNA get listeners. Because you're not going to get the exposure because it's so saturated. You know what? I mean. There's only two podcast and podcasts were as big as they are right now. Those, both of those podcasts will be just as big as each other. But then when you start adding more and more and more and more and more and more, you got fifty podcasts I don't like these thirty. I haven't even listened to these thirty and I don't care to listen at least thirty I'm listen to these twenty year. As it was saturated doesn't matter how you are at something..
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.

The temperature outside or my temper right now because I'm burning up I'm mad I'm upset I'm frustrated I'm irritated and it seems that soundcloud could care less. They're not even bothering to try to help me. They're not even bothering to try to fix the situation at an all stems from supposedly I violated some copyright law by simply giving you news about a new song coming out. I didn't play the song didn't even play a clip from the song I just talked about it but I guess talking about music now is a copyright violations according to soundcloud and I want every podcast. If you're thinking about putting your podcast on Soundcloud, I want you to know what happened I'm GonNa give you all the details and hopefully you're frustrated by it as well because look. I'm a small PODCAST, right? I'm a nobody. Okay. I'm not supported by any major corporation I. Don't have all kinds of money behind me. I'm a no one and when you have a company like soundcloud literally working against you and trying to hurt you that's that's not right. It's not right and people need to step up speak up and say you know enough's enough. You can't just push people. Around because you have the power, you have the leverage and we don't, it's not fair. It's not right and I'm going to tell the whole world about it right here in this episode and I hope you share this episode with everyone you know who produces videos maybe I don't care what you produce videos podcasts. If you create content, well, you you need to be able to get that content out..
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

"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

"Soundcloud and costs. let's check in now in our Middle East markets fared in the previous session with sold Foxman she joins us from the counter financial center in tow Simone. good morning you said yeah let's check in with our major markets here in the Gulf the Saudi to dell will seeing gains of almost one and a half percent but in the main index into by their falling it's most in a month over a one percent shares in Abu Dhabi roughly flat on any hearing cutter that index thinking for the fourth day in a row after a rather unfavorable footsie Russell rebalancing now the story in equity markets since region that we could not watch yesterday happening in Egypt where at the EGX thirty the main benchmark index thinking more than four percent and what a difference ten days makes the because just sit on the September fifteenth we're actually talking about how strong the Egyptian stock market is now we're just one percent higher on that index for the entire year there as protests concern of foreign investors about the political situation I'm not of course the other important story that we're watching here in the Gulf is that bond issuers that because we are at some of our lowest deals I ever really if we take a look at this JP Morgan and acts out of yield were actually a little off our lows we dipped below four percent there briefly at the end of August and part of the reason we're offer loses because folks actually returned to the market our talking DP world we're talking Abu Dhabi and if we put the boards were looking at rain which issued about two billion dollars in two billion dollars in bonds yesterday really favorable pricing better than expected the sick could do in the twenty twenty seven yielding four and a half percent that's the first time that this country has issued that since October twenty eighteen when actually set an aid package so pretty decent pricing there for issuers Yousef. so a great round of thank you for that Simone fox but at the other plans to censor Doha that's get back to our other top story UK prime minister Boris Johnson is vowing to the liver breaks it next month remaining defiant in the face of the country's top so to saying a suspension of parliament is unlawful so with us it is our capital chief investment officer a sign of Kerr say that I mean you saw the headline and it since this this endless. chase down a rabbit hole just your initial reaction is quite difficult to even have one the I think it's just basically is the system only right now Corbin doesn't want to call in a conference so I could have called one before and and it's a game of brinkmanship between by minister Corbin I think we'll end up in a situation where basically the Europeans and have to extend again after her first I think it's unlikely that Mister Mister Johnson have a deal by then if anything most likely will have elections after that so where does that leave sterling I think sterling benefits on headline news usually when we have a house in kind of a positive news about a potential deal but given now that parliament will put to use abortion check I think with policy usual rally the stress of the which was awesome is that after the after the quarter non Smith I think overall overall the indecision in terms of the future of I can I can do is a force seven lower we already seeing that the the data in the U. in the U. K. suffers I think this eventually place up with that with the extremely especially family extension we may have a short term rally on extension use but overall I think that will result in lower sterling I mean you mentioned today that we put together another Bloomberg sorry to that really contextualize is that this is the Bloomberg brexit barometer a reflection of the economic well being or the lack thereof because we have did quite a bit in the red over the last few months is this an opportunity then to go more aggressively short on the street. I am being mean glossary for sterling hasn't worked out simply speaking because we we still have quite a bit of time until by October thirty first we can't we have multi lines coming in and actually taking this out of a position so what we recommend exactly either being long downside of finality that to tends to work better in terms of the headline actually avoiding headline with saw action so I think that that's a better play in terms of a total of two liters headline we could have more work saws more positive news out of the occupancy one twenty six point twenty seven strong but in regard of exit I think without parliament backings Johnson we'll see starting trade back down again because of the data actually support yeah so with that being said what is your top trade at the moment. I think we're now where basically risk off into foot for the next two three weeks for actually focus on the soft personally with the incision and according pension especially and we're going to US equity markets where after this call so long bought long long ago we're still short heroes with the we're looking to establish long voice was foundations that's our our core focus right now all right thank you very much for that that's assignable cars with the insights he's from our capital is the chief investment officer there don't forget to our interactive TV phone and TV go there.
Climate Summit Special: Some States rise to Guterres challenge
"This is all wrong. I shouldn't be here. I should be back in school on the other side of the ocean yet. You all come to US young people for hope. How dare you you have stolen my dreams in my I childhood with your empty words yet. I'm one of the lucky once people are suffering. People are dying buying entire ecosystems collapsing. We are in the beginning of a mass extinction and all you can talk about is as a money of each economic growth. How Daddy you Greta Thunberg. They're the young climate activists who ignited a global movement of youth refusing to back down on the climate crisis and now at U N headquarters in New York she she sits face to face with the world leaders her and fellow youth have been demanding action from my message is that we'll be watching you delivering an emotional speech on political action and the fate of our planet she kicked off the UN's first ever full on climate summit today today at the top of the seventy fourth general assembly debates welcome to the lead is on a climate summit special. 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. I want you to imagine the schoolgirl gulping on the road side because of an asthma attack Broughton by air pollution the causes of climate change of very often the same as the causes of Appalachian Burning Fossil fuels like coal is one of them. It contributes two-thirds of outdoor. Oh Appalachian the deletion staffel can also be the same renewable energy electric mobility more walking and cycling to name just a few and an economic terms the and the World Bank calculate that tackling Appalachian will actually save US money trillions a year so I urge the leaders gathered here today to respond to the World Health Organization's call to action and to put tackling Appalachian at the top of your agenda agenda because cleaner is a human right and together. 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. We have as well to look at how best we can blend public resources and to that extent our country has introduced not true disaster clauses in bonds as have other countries in the region bobby therefore recognizes the urgency of Austin and insurance colloquium for interested leaders at the national and state levels of independent nations and dependent territories to to confront what we believe will be a growing crisis with respect to the affordability of insurance in our countries similarly believe Mr Secretary General that the real solution is for us to keep asking people to make commitments commitments that are small in the hope that we reach there but the global community must accept that it is within our power to halt and reverse exclaiming change. 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. Antonio Guiterrez reaffirmed that though time is running out we can still take steps to improving the health of the planet time is running out but it's not two lights the calls of wisely villages business this and specially young people what taking to the streets to demand that we change our relationship with nature now that lace up our running shoes and weaned the climate race the you've just heard innovators heads of state and international organizations presenting solid solutions to this pressing issue of our time at the UN's climate action summit here in New York.

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
Buttigieg country music radio interview blocked from airing

"How do you do fellow kids? Hey, their kids here as comma Harris doing her best rendition of how do you do fellow kids? Hey, it's kinda Harris. And this is my mood. A song. That has always made me dance. Check the rhyme a tribe called quest. I'm talking about fives. A song that has to be played loud. Because you have to hear the bass the sun is shining by Bob Marley and the Wailers. You're right. 'cause is shining and. A song. That reminds me of Howard University, my alma mater, the mecca the real h you. Push it by salt and pepper. Because it was a real hit song when I was. Favorite song from my childhood young gifted and black by read the Franklin a song that makes me think of my birthplace Oakland anything by too short. Tim show. A presidential song for anyone one nation under a groove by Funke deli one nation under a groove. The only thing I agree with her on there is I actually do really like fun Delic and I do like one nation under a groove. Everything else though. How pathetic let's just go through it because she's really giving us a glimpse into what this twenty twenty campaign is going to be like first of all she's laughing too much in in to identify away. It just seems contrived. I don't know if it's contrived I suspected is. It's that Hillary thing that. I'm likable, look likeable. And casual I am. It doesn't play. It. Also shows this entire campaign is going to be going for identity politics. Look at what she highlights. She spends a huge portion of one of the song segments talking about Milena mater Howard, University, historically, black the mecca the place the real h you I think she's referring to Harvard University. Although Harvard doesn't call itself H you, but she's drawing that dichotomy. She's saying, I'm a, you know, she says one of her favorite songs ramp, young gifted and Black Sea. That's me. That's what I was. I was born in Oakland, Oakland, very very black very tough city, very tough town. She's smart to do this in a way because that's our only shot to do anything to become president. She has to play lean into the intersection -ality vibe, she has to play race politics. I mean, she actually doesn't doesn't have to do it in a in a normal political structure. She's fairly intelligent. She's had a good career. She should be able to run on her own merits. But in this day and age in this democrat party, she. Can't do it. The one trouble. She's going to run into an identity politics. She's not actually black American in in the way, we would refer to that. She's half Indian and half. Jamaican? Her father is a Stanford economics professor from Jamaica. Her mother is a breast cancer scientist. So it really cuts she she's playing it up as though she grew up in Oakland, and you know, rough and tumble and young gifted and black. But really she grew up in total privilege and she didn't grow up in Oakland at the age of seven she moved to Canada, she moved to Montreal. She lived in Canada until she went to college. And so she totally grew up in Canada. You've got another ocasio Cortez thing. Here. She grew up privileged intelligent half Jamaican half Indian. She's a lawyer who was in Canada. And she's going to pretend now to have grown up in the mean streets of Oakland, a career politician who is trying to reinvent her identity to play into. What is unfortunately going to be an identity politics based democrat twenty twenty presidential primary. It's too bad for her. She actually does have a lot of Prudential's. She's had a good career. She she could run on the merits if this were any other time, and if she were a member of any other party, but she's not and I fear for her. She's not likeable. She's not casual she is she's the poor man's Alexandria Kazuo Cortez like the really poor man's Alexandria, ocasio Cortez. So I think she's going to flop on that point. You know, entity really matters these days, especially in presidential politics, especially after the age of Donald Trump or in the age of Donald Trump, and she's going to get hit for in in in authentic representation of upbringing. It's it's going to happen. It's not going to come from Republicans. It's gonna come from other Democrats who are going to say, she's not not the real deal. She's not offensive enough..

"He totally got it here, and coincidentally it helped to demonstrate a a little lesson about masculinity very much in the news. You're you're even going to see this now. So they they make fun of the airport or the fast food. You're going to see this with the airports to Americans are not being affected by the shutdown. They don't feel it federal workers we feel bad for them. You know, if they're out of work, but. That's a small percentage of the population. Vast majority of Americans are not affected by the shutdown with the left and the media are saying, well, if the TSA stop showing up to work if my pre check line at terminal b at JFK is shut down. Then you're going to hear about it. Mr President most people don't fly that much the vast majority of Americans don't fly very frequently the media fly around all the time. I fly around all the time. I'm very angry when the pre-checking shut down at terminal b of JFK, but small price to pay from small group of people who generally inhabit, a pretty privileged segment of society. And if they're going to be complaining about that. It's going to be exactly the same thing. You're and have the vast majority of America saying, oh, you're you're pre check line was closed boohoo. Let me play. You a sad song in the world's smallest violin? Big PR win. And and President Trump needed it. So a very glad to see it last night. Another fun PR win from the right, Laura. Luma if you're not familiar with Laura Luma. She is a provocateur a provocative tricks. I suppose you'd would be she's an investigative independent journalist. She's a right wing activist. She goes a little out there. Sometimes she can be a little out there. This however was perfectly executed she illegally immigrated to Nancy Pelosi's compound, she was just going to go in there. You know, because California's the Sancti where he stayed Pelosi said walls are immoral. So she's just going to go in there. And since walls are immoral. She's going to live in Nancy Pelosi's house surprise surprise. She was met by Nancy Pelosi security guards. Well, this is private property. So thank five. California's a century safe. Different CISCO's disinterested. I dunno. I thought Nancy Pelosi the house that idea. From everybody. That's here since you guys are on private pro. We don't need that in California. Helping has Gavin Newsom said we didn't need drivers licenses because it's like a form of profiling. I'm just really you're over properties. So you're trespassing. I don't really gives me ANSI said everyone was welcome here. You know, who needs people, so Nancy Pelosi's? Pelosi said that I didn't think I needed one. You guys. I'm really confused because Nancy Pelosi said of silence of human, right? But now they're saying I'm trespassing in the AFC said, everyone is welcome here. Like, if you if you know her. Mccook? Can I get your trespassing? It seems the mighty. Let's that's passing. I reject those facts it's being in private ever Justice that I didn't know there was private property and California. Property. So good, and it goes on for like an hour. So I recommend whenever you get home. Pull it up and watch it the the right is so much better at trolling than the left. It's outrageous, obviously, I mean, I'll take a little credit for the blank book stunts like this are so phenomenal. And we have the troll in chief in the Oval Office. The reason for this though, the reason why this stunt went so well compare the right wing stunts to the left wing stunts right wing stunned is a funny provocative girl shows up to Nancy Pelosi's house, allegedly with illegal aliens, she said that she had illegal aliens with her. I don't know if that's true or not. But it puts an ANSI Pelosi in this awful position of I'm supposed to arrest them. But I said that I can't arrest them in does she really have illegal aliens. I should let them in..

"And so and they pay much more for the kale from whole foods for a little piece of lettuce than they do for a Big Mac meal at McDonald's. And so you have them looking down on that. And you have the rest of America, saying, wait a minute. I love that. That sounds great. They're all saying how awful awful it is that Donald Trump invited the football team. And he just served them fast food, that's disgusting and the rest of America the rest of us. Is I'm sitting there literally eating a double quarter Pounder with cheese. This is happening saying I love that food food's delicious. What are you talking about? Then they tried to attack it from another angle, they say, wow, Donald Trump. He's playing into a stereotype that college jocks like to eat a lot of fast food. Guess what all the food was gone by the end of the night. You know, why? Because college jocks love to eat a lot of fast food, not just college jocks every college student likes to eat a lot of fast food, not just every college student. Most Americans do it was it was a master stroke. Because the as everyone of those little memes was going around of Donald Trump standing in front of the three hundred hamburgers. You then have that video going around where he says? Yep. The reason we're doing these hamburgers is because of the border down. But that's okay. I'm not gonna complain. I'm not gonna complain. And this is another aspect that he's demonstrate he doesn't always demonstrate it. But he's demonstrating it here of Manley. Masculinity is unique. Gratitude you need gratitude. You know, you need humility Trump, actually, ironically, he does have humility jokes about him. So he makes a lot of jokes about bragging, but he also makes jokes about himself. He says the only good thing about me is I don't drink. I'd be the worst in the world. That'd be the. I'd be terrible already. He makes these jokes about himself, even as he's joking about how funny is great. He is what Richie is. And you you need a little bit of gratitude. Don't he's saying, look, I'm not gonna complain that. We gotta eat this food. Everybody likes fast food. It's our favorite food. It's good in American. We're going to have a great time here tonight that makes you a bigger person. It makes you a much better person to be a man you need to be able to look back on your history on your forefathers on everything and civilization. That has led you to where you are. And you need to not hate it. If you hate it, you become whiny and miserable like the left you become Kathy. Like all of these girlie men on the left wing. But if you look at it with gratitude, and you say look those guys weren't perfect and his their fathers weren't. Kicked and their fathers imperfect, and I'm not perfect. I'm sure not perfect. I can conclude I can deduce that I'm a flawed person to that gives you a little bit of humility. And it allows you to look forward and say, okay, here's how we're going to be the bigger men here. Here's how we're going to be adults. Here's how we're going to move forward. It makes you much more attractive. This was a a real PR win for a president. Who is who is losing the PR battle of this shutdown? His approval rating is going down not by a lot but a little bit. And his is being blamed overall for the shutdown. His policy is improving in popularity the border wall itself is now more popular than it was before the shutdown, but he needed a little PR win..

Here's Donald Trump using this event with political brilliance. Be very interesting. See at the end of this evening. How many are left you prefer to Wendy. I I liked him all talk. If it's American liked it all American stuff. So, but it's good stuff. We have the national champion team is you know, Lympstone Tigers and they had a fantastic game against Alabama. We have beaches we have three hundred hamburgers. Many many bridge drives all of our favorite fluids. I wanna see what's here, we leave. Because I don't think it's going to be much reason. We did this is because of the shutdown. We wanna make sure that everything is right. So we said out we've got this. And we have some wonderful people work at the White House helped us out with this. And I will say the Republicans are really really sticking together. It's great to see because we need border security. We have to have it. We have to have no doubt about it should happen. Thirty years ago twenty years ago, Ted years ago, and it's going to happen now going to happen now. Thank you very much. Everybody. Thanks, Joe your food. Never this is the rule. This is the, you know, never get into a fight with the Sicilian. When death is on the line, never engage in a land war in Asia. And never challenge. Donald Trump to a battle in the media. He is the master of the media. So what he did? There was this event on the calendar to hang out with the Clemson football team. And he says, okay, we'll still do it. And I will take this event, and I will turn it into an instantly viral promotion advertisement four my border wall dering the government shutdown. So the news they've been covering. How awfully was how awful the Oval Office speech was terribly tried that they hated that. So then he goes out, and he creates an event that even his opponents can't hate. There is a photo of him going around sort of smiling in front of this beautiful long table filled with silver trays of of hamburgers. And they were all joking even his opponents were joking this and this is the hamburglar. Look at him look at this was so crazy, and so they're attacking him. But they're attacking him for doing something. That's we all have affection for that's really very likable. It's very hard to dislike ocasio Cortez is good at this too. She's very good at doing things that even her critics when they point them out have to admit or sort of likable, you know. She smiles she giggles, whatever. And so Donald Trump does this just to a whole 'nother level, and you'll notice there wasn't a lot of AAA at that event. Not even Taco Bell, which I like, it was all Americans all good American food. And what this did was this triggered the left. You know, in a way, I in two ways first, they said, the attack his wealth. They said he's obviously not a billionaire because if he were a billionaire he'd have good food instead of that disgusting fast food, so he he gets the and this was going all over the internet all over the commentary. He gets the left to position themselves as privileged effete. Rich people looking down on people who have less than them, the the next sport, which is related to that. Is he? Got the left to attack fast food. But the thing is that food that was on that table in the White House is the most popular food in America by a long shot. But it's not even close like it's not the gap between Big Mac and kale from whole foods is like there isn't enough room in my studio to show the gap in popularity between those two things. Now, the trouble is when you're talking about members of the press, the media Democrats in congress and the Senate that exactly flips. They haven't eaten a McDonald's hamburger since they were fifteen they only eat the kale from whole foods..

"He's trying to appeal. To them. He's so desperate for their affection. It comes from pride and it comes from a ruthless ambition. That's truly toxic. But that has nothing to do with manliness. Steve schmidt. That's not a manly, man. That's a that's a week guy taking potshots because he's betrayed his own principles. And he's left with nothing. He's left with nothing, but the corpse of his political career same as John casick? We will get to a good version of masculinity. Probably Gillette, wouldn't like it very much. But I certainly liked the Donald Trump fast foods summit the fast food feast at the White House last night with Clemson. We'll get to Laura Luma illegally immigrating to Nancy Pelosi's house twenty twenty Kamala Harris campaign, and then if we have time we'll talk about Steve king. But I I got to say goodbye to Facebook and YouTube, but by the way this Friday, this is a really important event. Ben shapiro. The big boss himself will be taking his show on the road to. The March for life in DC. He will be doing his show from the March for life. It's going to be very cool. Ten AM eastern. He'll be live streaming at the National Mall and twelfth street. So if you are planning to be at the March head over there and see him in person, it's going to be really, unfortunately, I'm gonna be stuck here in LA because someone's got to keep an eye on the shop while the boss is out of town. You know, someone's got to smoke cigars and everyone's studios and offices. So I'll have to be here if I could be there. I would if you're around town do not miss it. It is going to be fabulous. If you're on Facebook and YouTube go to daily wire dot com. Ten bucks a month one hundred dollars for an annual membership. You get me that the inflation show..

"You might you might sound out of fashion. Just stick to it. Otherwise, you're left with nothing. I think it will who was and who was dean in who said the man who marries himself to the spirit of the age. We'll find himself a widow in the next, and that's what's happening right now. John casick is mourning the death of his political career. He really could have been a contender in two thousand sixteen if he had remained a conservative render Republican he now thinks he's gonna primary dumb and Trump in twenty twenty good luck pal. Great. I I hope he does. I think it'll really unify the base around, Donna. And Trump to see this wimp, this pathetic failure of politician, go out and run his mouth about what what does he fighting for all the things he was fighting for he betrayed so he's just fighting for his own pride. And that's what it is. It's pride. It's not just John casick. You see this? You see this with an old GOP operative named Steve Schmidt whose now left of Ladimir Lenin and running to make the people at MSNBC like him, please like need like Nagai's. He is on MSNBC talking about Trump's Oval Office speech. And you could sitter that speech? What a powerful argument it makes against the theory of evolution as we look at the continuing defacement of the office of the presidency of the United States. We saw from Trump today, the typical lying the racial demagoguery the nonsense the spinning of crises out of whole cloth. They will reopen the government and at that point what will become clear. That even the Republican minority in the house, the Republican majority in the Senate will have joint every world leader. Most of the American people as a group who do not take this man seriously at all they look at him as a joke a clown. And a force a joke clown in a forest don't take him seriously at all I think Steve Schmidt is projecting. I think he he was looking at a mirror and thought that he was looking at an Oval Office speech. This is a man who worked for John McCain. He worked for George W Bush, and so he does come from the the more squishy wing of the Republican party. It's not like he was going out there marching in. The Reagan revolution a little young for that. He wasn't a founding member of the tea party or anything like that either. But just to illustrate what a squish what a what a what moral weakness what tuck city this displays this guy. Steve Schmidt left the Republican party. He finally left to the Republican party. And it's being talked about as though he left it specific. Over trump. But it wasn't just Donald Trump. The reason that Steve Schmidt left the Republican party specifically is because Donald Trump kept his campaign promise, which was the campaign promise of Barack Obama and was the campaign promise of George W Bush to move the US embassy in Israel to the capital of Israel, which is Jerusalem when Donald Trump did that now when he lied not when he said something racially insensitive, not when he exceeded his powers of the executive when Donald Trump kept his promise and the promise of Steve Schmidt's own boss who didn't keep that promise. That was what made Steve Schmidt leave the Republican party because he would prefer Wimpy girlie men who lie who don't keep their word because it's nice, and it's polite and that way a group of people in the Middle East who elected HAMAs to represent them who elected a terrorist group to represent them. Navy then bell like Steve. Schmidt Sieg is uncool. I'm not that horsh on terrorism. Aren't don't you like me like me, please? It's pathetic. It's pathetic. And it comes from pride. It come ultimately comes from pride. Because this guy just needs to be liked. You got to be a little careful about politicians who are desperate to be like who who look a little bit of seeking out the applause, and seeking out crowds that is a professional hazard of politics and show business. It's a it's a requirement of it, really. But you've got to differentiate between the people who are willing to say tough things and don't care if you know, the crowds around them, don't like them, and the people who are willing to change what they say to any given audience. No matter how the political winds turn that's the difference. I mean, you look at somebody like Mitt Romney and any room he talks to and any different day of the week that he talks to he says, something different..

"V f f e forty seven forty seven forty seven C F E F E four seven four seven four seven. Message and data rates may apply. Speaking of toxic masculinity. I'll illustrate this point. I'm a little bit by looking at some rhinos in the sad. Sad case of John casick John casick now that he's leaving the Ohio governor's mansion is joining CNN surprising, exactly not a single person on earth. He's joining CNN, and he is a pathetic politician. He's truly pathetic. He's started out. John casick as a pretty right wing politician. Pretty right wing governor. He was he was a member of congress budget committee is fiscal hawk pretty rock ribbed. I really liked him. I was hoping he would run for president in two thousand sixteen back when he was old John casick, and then he became this virtue, signaling leftist, awful politician. It was a great piece today in the Washington Examiner called John casick exit stage left by Jason Hart. What is his legacy? This is an I this is my defense of of manliness of being manly. Not being a week Wimpy rhino. Like, John casick? He's leaving the Ohio governor's mansion with super majorities in both houses of the Ohio general assembly, and yet the fiscal hawk is leaving with the highest government spending ever. Medicaid enrollment way up low private sector job growth, lower than the national average for a long part of his tenure. He. He also he was running against the unions and the pensions, he's leaving with some of the worst union laws in the country. One of the worst municipal tax systems and some of the worst unfunded liabilities in the nation. So all of those entitlement and pension programs. Really awful what happened to this guy? He exhibited true toxic masculinity, which is Wimpy which is self interest. John casick only knows about numero Uno. He doesn't seem to put his ideas. I or his constituents. I he's only in it for himself. I think is the reason why he's he turned out so bad and he's clearly gotten bad advice. I mean, this was a decision when he was first running. He said, I I was tea party before there was a tea party. He was running to the right? And then he got bad advice. Some people told him to to turn left that that was going to be his path to more political power. And he sold his political soul for nothing because that's what happens when you sell your political soul. Is you get nothing. It's a bad investment. Read a book. Read history read the bible, so. What what is this toxic masculinity paired up? It's a pairing of pure self interest. And and Embiid him you've got to be really wary about this this. Because I think this is how leftism spreads in our culture is people are purely self interested in their very ambitious, and so they're willing to make a deal with the devil. They're willing to say, well, you know, look, if I speak the truth, if I say that men or women if I say that up is not down if I say that unborn baby is not just medical tissue. As some activists are saying today, if I say that it will hurt my career might not make much money might not be as popular at the party's. Maybe I won't I won't be as cool. I won't be such a cool guy. And so they make these little tiny concessions. They make these little social concessions, and what happens the culture is utterly transformed by wimps even guys on the right? You'll see this. Sometimes I mean, this is the classic example of the Republican, but not that kind of Republican. It's those guys who you say, oh, you're a conservative, and they say, yes, I'm conservative, but I'm much more interested in you liking me than being conservative or advancing. Ideas, I'm not going to have conservative. That's what they say. And I said, you know, look, I get it. I remember I've gone through political evolutions in my life. Certainly I I was less conservative. When I in my youth when I was so in my wild oats than I am now, I get it. There's a huge social pressure on campuses in corporate America in the halls of congress to not be a real conservative guy to not say what you think you might be unpopular..

"On our show. But they they advertise on a right wing network row vaguely conservative network, and this is very bad the lesson here is that. You will rue the day when you grant the left's premises even if the premises are. Seemingly convenient or expedient or you think? Oh, it'd be just so easy. If I could just if I just accept this premise, they'll stop bothering me. Okay. Men masculine the is toxic. You should all be feminists. The minute you grant that premise like a snake eating its own tail. They will devour you is also Ukraine that premise, but it's not good enough. It's not social Justice enough. It's not leftist enough. It's not this. And this is really going to come come at Gillette. It doesn't stop this happened in Hollywood the minute that actually it's it's happened in the metoo movement. When these guys a lot of whom are pretty bad Hombres in Hollywood admit that they did something wrong or they say, maybe we I should wear the little bracelet or the pin. That says time's up the immediately. It just cascades, it's an avalanche Gillette. I hope discovers that. Because it's a it's a very bad thing. It's a horrible message. It's a horrible message in part because it's convincing to ignorant and shallow people. But manliness is a virtue manliness is where. Get the word virtue, and we should defend that against these straw, man. Absurd attacks. Now, let me invite you into my door. Speaking of toxic masculinity and talk about one of my favorites purple mattress, you know, that I am a proselytizer for purple mattress. I kid you not. I'm not saying this because I'm doing an advertisement for them. Almost every night. I get into bed with sweet little Elise. And we say, I love our purple mattress. I'm so this is really the perk of working at the daily wire they haven't paid me in years and years, but at the very least, I get my cool purple mattress. It is the best bet I've ever slept on. I simply love it. It's different than a memory foam. It's different than a an innerspring. It's this technology developed by rocket scientist, it feels both firm and soft. I know that sounds contradictory. It's not it's just the best. It feels great. I snooze my alarm twenty thousand times in the morning because I don't want to get out of bed. It's that great. It also sleeps pretty cool because of this this material. So you're not going to be.

"They're saying Nike by embracing radical leftism by embracing Colin capper, Nick is their spokesman by embracing these anti-american anti traditional politics, they they got a short term gain at least a short-term gain in sales profits market. You know, they've they've actually done pretty well. As a result of that campaign in Gillette is looking at that. And they're saying that right now in the sort of normal society politics is downstream of culture culture is downstream. Religion. But in this weird society that we're in now, it's like a snake eating its own tail. Politics is still downstream of culture. But then culture is downstream of politics in a way that the left is totally inverted. So they looked to the politics not just as their culture. But is there God? And they're saying, okay. Well, if that's the case, then we need to infuse or advertisements with politics. Now. It's a little weird for Gillette because Gillette company for men men. Skew more conservative than women. We'll we'll see if this pays off for them in the end the the idea that itself, though, is just so wrong. Because I I've seen even a couple of conservatives on Twitter say, oh, I don't really see what's wrong with the ad. They're just saying men shouldn't be jerks. They're not saying that men shouldn't be jerks. They're saying that men are jerks. There's it's not just the men should be nicer men. Should be more polite. Sure. Yeah. Of course with they're saying is that men by their very nature or awful. They're worse there than women. They're they're just bad. People who do bad things. And and further what they're saying by using extreme examples, they use these kids low roughhousing kids are wrestling on the ground kind of smack in each other. And in the in the bad olden days when people were using Gillette, then that was just boys will be boys. So it's not a big deal. But now in the good days. We're Gillette is the new feminist shaving company, then the father goes, and he says, no, we don't roughhouse. No. We don't do that. This is the way to raise the worst kind of men if you tell boys not to stick up for themselves not roughhouse every once in a while not to be able to take punch every once in a while they are going to be so weak. They are going to be so embittered they are going to be so stressed and anxious and depressed and catty and miserable. That they're going to look like young men do in our current society. Because that's exactly what happened. You had a generation of men raised broadly with the self esteem movement. With anti masculinity or toxic toxic masculinity with feminism is the dominant ideology gender ideology of their youth. And what has this raised? It's raised. Not a generation of polite. Wonderful chivalrous gentleman. It's raised generation where we now have allegedly according to the left a rape epidemic on campus. We now have women plumbing to be abused in all forms of industries, obviously in show business and elsewhere. You raise men without any of the virtues. What they are saying now is that masculinity is toxic in reality manliness is a virtue. In fact, it's not just a virtue virtue. Means virtue to is comes from Latin from vir, which means man and virtue means moral uprightness doing the right thing this as the left always does they have flipped this. They have totally perverted this. And they want. You to believe that vices for you in virtuous vice the way, you know, this is also ridiculous because nobody is denying that certain primarily male attributes masculine attributes can be perverted and take into a bad place. So courage can be turned into aggression or bullying or recklessness. Or whatever it can it can be turned into any of those things. But isn't that true of every other group? What about femininity? Why don't we talk about toxic femininity? If I if I came out, and I talked about toxic femininity. I would be labeled a bigot or a sexist misogynist, or whatever friend of mine posted on Facebook the other day, it was a picture. And she said, I, you know, I've been stopping man's splinters for a very long time. And it was her giving a talk and said, I'm stopping man Splendors. What if I posted a picture of myself at one of my college talks, and I said I've been shutting up women's since twenty sixteen or twenty two whatever we that..
