"I learned from that it would be really valuable for people to hear So the reason. I'm coming to the match. I fest It will number one. I remember i went there when i was about sixteen years old at a great time So it's been you know thirty something years thirty plus years since i was there last But the reason is because you know. I like Actually the other one of the other reasons is is that i have off that week The united nations general assembly is taking place in new york. So all of the hotels in midtown area including mine. are close to the public They have snipers on the on the roofs of all the buildings surrounding my hotel because of the world leaders at stay there so Yeah so basically.

So i happen to have that one week free which were perfectly found by the other but the other part of the answer is that i like magicians i like hanging out with magicians. I'm an amateur magician. I mean i've been doing this for you know a long time but i'm just i'm just like anyone else. I love learning new tricks seeing new tricks. I dislike the enjoyment of Of being of opened up to new techniques and new psychological principles. And and you know all of the stuff that you see the magic convention news of great interest to me I don't think. I have that much to contribute. As far as the magic end of it but hopefully other things. I bring to the table. We'll be interested some of the visitors. I'm absolutely sure they will stave.

"It's about the proper net about the person and Want just because i have you know the ability to have big props in my room doesn't mean that that's a better thing You know i think that part of the charm of a show is it's an it's minimalistic and that people in fact think man. He didn't even doing it. He didn't have anything and it was still the experience imagining. You know when siegfried came to my show at the waldorf years ago from siegfried and roy. He came up to me after his he said. I'm so envious of you as a siegfried. Why do you think your why envious of me. I mean you're siegfried. And he said because when we performed in new york last time it was at radio city music hall and we need three tractor trailers of our props ner get to entertain an audience if you walked out here with virtually nothing and people felt. They are experiencing real magic. It may be even more than with us. And i was like well. It's coming from you. That's a massive compliment I don't know if he was just saying that. But you know you. You seem like he. He was being genuine and praise and You know i it really resonated with me that he don't need big props to be considered a magician so one time. When i was just getting started i had a paul harris. Came to one of my earliest shows after the show is over Mark levy. who's my best friend. And also the creative director of chamber magic mark levin. And i went out for a coffee with paul and And one of the things. That paul said was I he gave the show be plus. It was one of the earliest shows as. Okay what can i do to make it an a minus so anyway cybernet. He said something at that coffee which resonated with me. Which was that people should be able to meet you and you don't do any magic at all and people should still feel like they've experienced time with the magician and that's a really interesting mindset right. You don't have to do magic to be a magician. You can be a magician without performing magic and It's kind of counter.

You know you go to someone who's doing something you like or something that you want to learn how to do and ask for some insight. I think that's that's a valid request is not to to is not stepping over any lines so that this book was in a way a kind of an answer to that question the rather than people just emailing me directly like say if you have that question here get this this because it gives you many of the answer not all of them but it gives you many of the answers have their mindset. Is you have to put yourself into a certain mindset to your it's entrepreneurial mindset. It's not just about being good magician. And i don't think i'm the best magician. I mean there's probably you know i can. I can name dozens of magicians who better than me technique and and presentations and it went up. I figured out a way to use my own personality. I think that would really selling is not your tricks. You're selling your personality. And the experience of being with this specific person that that's what i excel at and so i put that into a book as best as i could say the at entrepreneurs selling a version of yourself and experience of being that person.

"Okay because there's a real answer for that but as far as the pandemic goes i didn't even crack this once nor did i practice my lines once nor did i rehearse i mean i practice you know some sleight of hand during the During the course of everyday. I'll have a deck of cards. No practice change practice. You know a passer. Double liberated just the moves that are the basics distant. keep myself You know but but as far as the performance of my whole show goes. I didn't even try it once and the reason is because i mean i'd like you mentioned in the beginning of this show six thousand times so i know the show. It's it's without even thinking about. It is just ingrained in my body and my mind so i actually surprised myself and i walked out in front of the audience and started saying things i hadn't said for year and a half and i didn't even know that i knew those words in order and other vow that came out really well for those words coming from. I knew that i had heard them before. Because i said i've never even written the whole show down. The show is not written down any place. I've got video recordings of it. But i've never transcribed her transcribed In is just the evolved over twenty plus years. So you know you're thinking about anything you've done for twenty years you just you know. It is as walking Or people say riding a bicycle. That i didn't really have to practice and i mean maybe it's you know pompous serve. Maybe just seems like a foolhardy thing to do not to try something before you're walking in front of a p audience but I actually had a little bit of a buffer. I'll share this with you. So the very first show back the very first show. I did as a free show. Meaning that everyone there did not pay so okay and and So i figured if.

I read about this in the beginning of the book. Saying that i read about malini in ricky's book learning takes therapy women when i was a fourteen or fifteen years old and so when i read that i thought how is it possible. This short jewish guy middle eastern jews living in new york especially inclusive close up magic can hobnob with all these well to do wealthy people from around the world and chance to be put up in fancy would tell the senator as horse second. I'm assured middle eastern jewish. New yorker happens to lay close to magic to and you know and so what can i do to the You know walk in his footsteps crying and something about his whole demeanor that just really resonated with me especially i lived in a town called chappaqua new york which is Very wealthy area. It's where bill. And hillary clinton moved to It's very upscale and we were like the poorest people in town. My family were both schoolteachers. But i was basically interacting with very very wealthy people all the time and When i started reading that malini was starting even poorer than us. And he's living in tenements and lowering low reset in manhattan How is it possible that he went and travelled around the world eight times performed for kings and queens and multimillionaires and whatnot that. That's the gig for me. That's what i want to do. And so Distorted following his footsteps and performing some of his magic things. I learned from the vernon book. You know there was dictated to wisconsin and trying to find things about millennium null sorts of places and obviously stars of magic his several items of his and all through ask alexander got a real workout with me but yeah and i went through pretty much every reference that was available for malini but that was just the starting point because i went.

It steve cohen. Steve how are you this morning. I'm doing pretty well. You've done the show for over twenty years. And as i said over six thousand performances. What do you do to keep it fresh for you. Because you're the writer director the performer. What did he keep it fresh. I've i've just always said about. Who's in the audience. And you never know who's going to be there and you know my business is really based on it was based on doing private shows for people means and that was the original reason i started doing. This show is. They can meet people and eventually try to get invited to perform there. You know yachts and private islands and whatnot But over the course of time the show is also taken on a life of its own. You know i'm performing for thousands and thousands of people who are just regular people which is perfectly violently and i really enjoyed that Who's going to be in the audience so you might have a member of the royal family from qatar or you might have you know ayla celebrity and you never know who's going to be in the audience until you walk out and sometimes even then you don't know because maybe someone who's You know not as notable but for me that's the thrill is not knowing who's going to be there and who can i meet and and even you know now. I don't do really for the financial gain. It's really just wanna meet interesting people and you. After the show is over a lot of the interesting people come up when they want to just have a chat and we start to talk with each other and often become friends with them so You know i've had some some clients have come to the show who say eventually. Hey i really enjoyed talking with you. Wanna go on a trip together. Sure where do you wanna go. And we'll go to barcelona or we'll go to madrid go to To milan or someplace. Go to japan together. So this happens more often now than getting using the show as a way to meet interesting people. And i really enjoyed that. How cool chang the pandemic you obviously must have been thinking about the show and we thinking about what new elements you could bring in. Obits you could prune have changed the show in any. It changed my. I think my attitude has changed. You know being a magician is kind of a bit of being a very needy person That you need to have a you know a approbation. You need to have applause. He needs to have people tell you how wonderful you are. And you know during the pandemic wasn't getting any of that. And i realized i could live just fine without all the kudos at all the pets in the back ryan so you know when i went out and started doing these performances again. People are you know. Give me those pats. I started actually felt a little strange. Because i wasn't expecting i didn't need it. I didn't need it as much. So the performance itself i think is kind of toned down. I've kind of become a little bit less. You know showman ship Heavy lay ta. You know it's not anymore it's more dislike. Hey i've got something that i worked on for a long time that i really enjoyed. I think you might like to and more low key about it. I think that resonates the people so i was worth spending too much new material and you have new magic that i'm working on That i wanted to put into the show for sure.

The Mets Quest To Rebuild, And Rebrand, Themselves
"So tim. It's certainly been a roller coaster of an off season for the new york mets. How would you characterize the state of this. Mets organization as we head into the twenty twenty one season. I feel like the mets are still in kind of a period of transition as an organization. Steve cohen took over at the start of november and he brings in sandy alderson. The team's former general manager as his team president guy who's really well respected around the game of baseball and the thought was they wanted to instill a new culture for the mets to build this new mets team. That was totally different from what they had previously under wilpon ownership and for two and a half months they nailed it. We're going to build a process that produces great teams year in and year out. You bill champions you. Don't buy them. They nailed the opening. Press conference and i plan to make the investments. We need to succeed. It started signing guys. Trevor may and james mccann. They make a huge landmark trade for francisco endure and carlos carrasco the first week of january and everything was rolling in the right direction for them until mid-january and the story about jared porter and his inappropriate text messages and texts photos with a female reporter while he was a member of the chicago cubs front office in two thousand sixteen exposed that maybe the mets could have done a better job in the vetting process. That was clearly for a lot of baseball reporters. Based on the inference took off of twitter talked and he will find out his character. That's on you. Skepticism is really exacerbated. A couple of weeks later when we learned about micky calloway's misconduct as mets manager. In two thousand eighteen. Twenty nine thousand. Nine callaway sent unsolicited messages and photos to women among other inappropriate and harassing behavior. The former mets manager aggressively pursued the women through messages and in person the team released a statement saying was hired by sandy alderson. As the general manager. Calloway had been hired by. Sandy alderson two years before so i think all of the good vibrations from the first couple months of the offseason were undercut by what happened in the last month of the offseason for mid january to the start of spring training in february
Understanding the GameStop Stock Market Drama
"Markets have been shaken again over the past two weeks as Reddit Day traders boosted shares of companies like game Stop. And sent short selling hedge funds running with long short funds losing 6% overall last month, and Melvin Capital alone, plummeting 53%. But most hedge funds emerged unscathed. And Steve Cohen's 0.72 even attracted $1.5 billion in new money. Here's sweet that Ramachandran, GAM investment manager, I assume hedge funds are probably reluctant to short small cap stocks right now, if the fear that the Reddit brigade might be behind those, But by early this week, game stops to the moon rally started to come back toward Earth, and not even the reddit flash mob or changes the top of the company. Could get the irrational exuberance going again reminding us why hedge funds and short sellers target companies like Gamestop investor that gets caught in the up dressed on that and doesn't understand that investing well, it looks like it's all going up to the person to click the last by understand that that could happen to them that quickly. That's former e trade financial CEO Carl Rossner. I ask Council on foreign relations senior fellow Sebastian Mallaby, if anything will fundamentally change. In the hedge fund world. I don't really, I mean, I think that hedge funds which of course, go back to the sixties, at least have proven to be an amazingly robust platform from which to think creatively about risk. Ondo. They adapt. You know they get new stuff yesterday in their ways when they began, there was no such thing as trading currencies because turned his world fixed it together one mark, it's hardly existed. You have to trade stocks by appointment on. They adapted all the way through that, As everything changed the authentic thea advent of reddit the advent of Robin Hood. This is just the latest iteration of the long, long history of financial innovation, and every time hedge funds figure it out. You also have regulators trying to figure it out as it were, after the fact we have the Treasure Secretary Janet Yellen now saying She's meeting with regulators, saying, We need to take a hard look at this about the volatility and whether this might actually put in jeopardy. Some investors. We also have hearings in Congress coming up. Do you expect there might be some tweaking, at least to the regulations? I think with respect to Robin Hood on the fact that it had to close down Access to trading on second stocks. That's the kind of market interruption which regulators order take action on. You need the infrastructure of trading to be reversed you, you know you need to look at the plumbing, and some regulators put it. And so the back part of the system will definitely because they're fresh. Look, What about on the short selling side? There have been proposals as you know, well for short, so staff to disclose their positions, individual positions, which is done is I understand in Europe. Do you think there might be a renewal of that call? And by the way, why do we have to disclose on the long side and not the short? I'm not sure, Actually, that hedge funds do disclose on the long side unless they buy more than Disposable fresh over believe it's 5% or something off the company so you could get away with a lot without disclosing. I think you know when you Taking a really big position. Probably there's it becomes a systemic threat to you. You know, you might blow up if that position where to go very badly wrong on so regulators to care about the soundness of the system ever all Have a legitimate interests, but I think it's more positions shouldn't have to be disclosed. But we certainly had some large hedge funds who took a big hit on. I wonder whether that did suggest it could be systemic risk here. Well, the beauty of hedge funds is that through their long history They've proven to be smart enough to fail. Not too big to fail, they actually can blow up and people often cite long term capital management in 1998 Aziz. The big exception actually, if you go back and look at that incident The New York Fed convened the banks to recapitalize them, but no taxpayer money. Zero went him. So freestanding hedge funds. I'm not counting here, the subsidiary of best stones that went wrong in a rage. Freestanding hedge funds have never had a taxpayer bailout mills in capital has not needed to taxpayer bailout. That's the good thing about hedge funds.

No we have to do is get you the microphone, headset and a wire that's like taped to the top of your shower. We're good.

Hey, I forgot you live next to Stephen King. My bad. I'm just saying, I mean, I think that's gotta be the look. It's actually gonna work.

I think that's what it should be. I'll wear my met. I'll wear my my metsa bathing suit, which is a big one piece, and it'll work out fine. It'll be good and I'll try and I'll drink like like water or Diet Coke. I won't drink champagne because, obviously, look, we're on the air again. E got to be a pro on this. I can't just I can't just mailed it. S O. Here's what went on today now because of this stock shorting. That involves Mets owner Steve Cohen because his hedge fund invested a lot of money into one of the company's Melvin capital that is at the center of this, and he was losing about a billion dollars in this situation. So either Steve Cohen's a bad guy because he's involved in something that has a lot of day traders upset or he's a guy who is the victim because he's lost a billion dollars. So let's deal with it from from the sports perspective here. Where, where we can kind of encapsulate a couple of things number one AM I worried this is gonna affect the Mets? Or or people worried. This is going to affect the mess because that's number one thing, Boy. He just lost a billion dollars. Would this affect the team's payroll and not be able to pay for people Because we just watch the Wilpons on the team? And after they got caught in the Ponzi scheme, they had no money for anything. I'm telling you, it's not going to affect anything. It's not gonna affect baseball. It's not. I don't care if Dave Portnoy from bar Stool Sports is so upset. He wants the Mets thrown out of Major League baseball and going needs to be put in jail. All this crazy that it's not going to affect the Mets. Because Cohen is worth $15 billion. He can afford to lose $750 million and it not be a big deal. And he was one of those JAG owners like that one of those JAG billionaire owners of ya gotta add worth like $2 billion, Do you Can't even buy a sports team and get out here if you believe you're one of them, or hey, I'm upon the part owner of this team, don't you? Only with like 17 other people because you're only worth like $750 million. Well, yeah, but get out of here, man. I mean, this guy is worth $15 billion. It does not gonna make a difference. All right, the Mexico. Still the Mets are still going to go give Trevor Bauer $300 Million and it Xhaferri of of the day that he had giving this money to Melvin Capital. He's gonna give half that to Trevor Bauer for 10. Years. He's got the money. I am not worried. I mean, unless you know the feds show up. I am not worried about that part of it because he is worth so much money. I know it's amazing deal, but here's the problem is that there's class action lawsuits already being filed on, But here's Here's my point about Mike and this. This is why I'm not worried about the legal part of it, too. Is that This is such a public thing that's happened if if something happened, that was illegal. I think we would have known about that by now. I don't think Steve Cohen is on Twitter talking about the day and saying, Hey, bad I'm not feeling the love you know, from from stock market friends today. I mean, he's his column is Canby. He's on Twitter going. Hey, I'm not feeling the love here from you guys while you guys so mad at me. Why does everybody hate the Mets? It was really that illegal, I would have to think something else would have because this is not how criminals get caught right criminals get caught wide out in the open here. You don't catch a guy with a bag of money in the spotlight's on committees, and that and the footprints walking away from the from the back. No, this is something that was really out in the open. Hedge funds are very aggressive, and they're very controversial. It's like suddenly people are all the guys a hedge fund investors now you kind of knew that about him. Okay? You kind of knew that this is the business he was in. If it was really Illegal. What was going on? I have to think and again, this is just me. Seeing when something public comes out like this, If it was illegal, and it was something good, it would be a different story. Steve Cohen wouldn't be talking about it. It would be something where you would see a It would be a flash bang headline where police are investigating this and here come here come the authorities, But there's been none.
Just when Mets thought they hired the right man, they fired Jared Porter as GM after harassing texts to female
"And is the new york. Mets general manager jared porter. He was one of the rising stars in major league baseball and now he is unemployed. Always good the mets looked like they were on their way. They're reinvesting in the team and now he's unemployed because he was doing some offensive things and this is Interestingly enough like almost five years ago that he did it and now it's come back to haunt him and it's So last month he was hired as the mets. Gm and jared porter was fired for sending sexually explicit uninvited text messages and images to a female reporter in two thousand sixteen when he was still in the cubs. Front-office espn reported late monday. That porter sent dozens of unanswered texts to the woman including a picture of quote an erect naked penis in. Espn said. It obtained a copy of the text history. Many of the messages and photos he said were displayed in the report online. And so new. Mets owner steve cohen terminated porter in my initial. Press conference spoke about the importance of integrity. And i meant it. There should be zero tolerance for this type of behavior. And it's a. It's it's saddens me to think about the woman in question because she was a foreign correspondent who had moved to the us to cover major league baseball. And i guess. She met porter at yankee stadium. They spoke briefly about international baseball. The exchange business cards now the only time they actually ever spoke but then ported starts with texts like text a palooza complimenting her looks inviting her to meet him in different cities that he was traveling to asking. Why are you ignoring me. And then after he sent a lewd picture she had to ignore sixty more messages and then a vote. The vulgar photo that was basically straw that broke camel's back and the woman actually went back to her home country and left her job. That i mean the whole thing is sad but to think that the woman With everything that was done by porter here allegedly that that contributed to her decision to leave journalism altogether and return to her home country at just so sad across the board.

Report: New York Mets GM admits explicit texts to female reporter
"Report tonight and they have a lot of it verified by Jared Porter himself. Jared Porter is the Mets general manager who was hired by Sandy Alderson when he came in to run baseball operations following Steve Cohen bought the team. Well, According to this ESPN report, Jared Porter sent explicit unsolicited text and images to a female reporter in 2016 when he was with the Cubs that culminated with a picture of an erect Naked male member this, according to a copy of the text history that was obtained by ESPN. Here's the details, and then I'll tell you why. I can't believe he hasn't been let go. Already. The woman was a foreign correspondent who moved to the United States to cover Major League baseball. They had a chance meeting in an elevator. And she thought Jared Porter yellow. Jared Porter is working for the Cubs, and she was making a connection in networking. So they exchange information. Uh, that's the only time they actually spoke, was in that elevator when they met. So then Jared Porter and this woman start texting with each other and he text her. Hey, we should get together. We should have a drink, and he's texting her a lot, right. He's texting her a lot. And she's responding once every you know if you text Hey, let's get it. Let's have a drink. Let's do this. Let's do that on. They didn't meet for a drink. One night after said she could meet with him Jared Porter, sending unsolicited selfie of himself just a selfie of himself. It's me in this picture is in the ESPN article, and he wrote back like And she didn't respond. Uh Then he texted the next day saying, Why aren't we hanging out? You're so pretty. Do you have a boyfriend? It could be me on this is going on now for a few days. After she sent a selfie Now she sends a selfie back to him. And Porter responded. You're gorgeous. You want more of me? She said yes. Explaining the ESPN. I thought it would be awkward to say no, I didn't think of where it would progress. Then Porter sent three pick. Yeah, this is where l k doors opened an escalating quickly horses out of the barn. Porter then sent three pictures, including the first of several that would show a man lying on a bed with a bulge in his pants. The woman was initially confused. Quarter wrote like she laughed again and texted. Yes, though she told ESPN Shin and realized the intention of the photo taken. You're not married, she asked. So okay, so here's little bit of him, sending a lot of text and it seems a little weird Stalker ish and some stuff you wouldn't send. But she is sending back to him, and she's sending things like yes, and liking pictures that he sent So then she realizes that things were getting to a sexual nature and she doesn't respond. Quarter than saying. This is this is the big deal. Porter then sent 62 unanswered texts. 62, including seven photos. That included the final nude photo of a naked male member. Now. When Jared Porter was asked about this, he admitted sending the text and then when he was asked, Are these pictures of you? He said, No. Those air stock images so apparently the Cassis I went on Twitter and found a stock image of I went looking for male members everywhere. It's all I got to use. This one wanted representative, I guess. Yeah, I gotta get going. Does that have that? Have a birthmark? Does that of this was And so that's what he said. He said Then, when ESPN told them we're running a story on this, Do you want to comment? Jared Porter stopped and didn't call them back. The Mets released a statement tonight saying they have spoken with Jared Porter, and they will have Maura after they do their own investigation with this now, obviously, this is just happening, and you can make an argument in the in the in the first part of it that Well, what was he overboard? She have sent those texts? No, he shouldn't have. But she did send back responses that were in the positive of Yes. So he thinks, okay, I'm cool, sending these images to you, and then when she cuts it off, that's where things get back because then 62 texts. That go unanswered. And then you're still still sending naked pictures of of male members. Uh, yeah. You know Jared Porter, I think you've had your last day Has Mets GM. I mean, I know what happened when you were with the Cubs. I understand that. But this is a horrible optic that the Mets don't need the entire time. He's GM Who's gonna take him seriously, who forget about whatever charge you might face for stalking or Harassment. Whatever it is, Uh, really? You're gonna keep this guy around. I just don't see it. I mean, I just don't know. Is it gonna happen in 12 hours is going to happen in 10 minutes, but the Mets can't go forward him is the G M. Because at the very least, this is a really bad optic. They don't need that. Just going to embarrass the entire organization and they need to say you know what? Jared, I'm sorry. But, boy, this is too much for us and good luck and you're done and we're gonna have a new GM. And we're gonna call Jason Smith that Fox Sports radio because he's got a finger on the pulse. The Mets, and he knows we got to go get George Springer aren't I added that

It's you know, the one interesting thing. This is kind of inside baseball, literally and figuratively. I heard it. Maybe can ask this a mad Paulie before Brewers weekly during the always entertaining crosstalk segment about 8 58. 7 58 on Thursday. I've heard it that because Steve Cohen, who bought the New York Mets was not a baseball owner last year. The Mets are operating from a From a more advantageous financial perspective because Steve Cohen took no losses last year, whereas you have all these other owners Who as long as they were owners last year. How's it could point they took a loss, some sizable sum not as sizable. But all the other baseball owners took losses. He wasn't a baseball owner last year. So he's not starting from a point of loss. I don't know. I heard that and so maybe does that Give him give them that's even more of an advantage in the money they can spend? I don't know. I remember when he bought the team. He said Something on the lines of I didn't buy this team to make money. I have enough money. So we're here to actually turn the ship. Oh, enough. A lot of teams make money, though. I mean a lot of teams make money. It's really interesting because when you talk sports ownership I heard it put this way, and I heard it really, really well, you have to score boards. There's the I'm running a business is my business making money. If you're a business owner and your profitable would you not consider that a successful business but in sports? The other scoreboard as it were is the Wins and losses. Are you a successful sports team? Are you winning games? Are you vying for championships? Are you a championship caliber organization on the field or on the court or on the diamond or on the pitch or whatever the Venue is I never thought of it that way. And I I heard it put that way recently. I thought that's really something you never think about because these are indeed. Businessman and business women. That are involved in these decisions and You know, teammates suck on the field, but they're making some money. I don't know if anybody made money this past year with covert. I guess I'm thinking right now. Baseball strictly but Speaking of covert FDA has sent out another note from Saturday heads up, everyone more than ever Watch out for fake covert products. The reason these things are out there. Obviously because they're finding some people to get suckered into buying these things. If that wasn't the case. Then it it wouldn't be an issue. The Food and Drug Administration has gotten ahead of snake oil salesman who've been trying to peddle fake coronavirus related products in recent months. Even going so far as to throw images of these junk items on to flicker so you can see them up close. The FDA also says it's already issued warning letters to the vendors associated with these fraudulent medicines while keeping a watchful eye out for more and side note here, I imagine when we get much, much closer to actually being able to go and get the vaccine You're gonna get more products like this pop up? Yes, come on in. This is as good of the vaccine or maybe even some people say this is the vaccine and it's not. I don't know. Here's some of the goofiest ones that the FDA has flagged this phony. This one is called Virus BioShield. It's from a firm called Rats. Army. It's an oil like substance. With claims it's full of vitamins, anti accidents and helpful minerals and which quote exhibits antibacterial, antiviral and anti fungal properties. It suppresses tumor growth. Increases Vaccine effectiveness Protects against Accid A tive damage among other things. Have a picture here. Here it is. Virus BioShield.

How I Built Resilience: Niraj Shah and Steve Conine of Wayfair
"And today we're going to hear from the CO founders of Wayfair near a shot and Steve Cohen. We first feature Neeraj. Steve on the show in April of two thousand eighteen and we just republished that episode. It's near the top of your podcast queue. You should check it out. They have an amazing story anyway since we talked to them in two thousand, eighteen wayfair has become profitable and despite anticipating huge challenges during this economic crisis. Wayfair has actually done pretty well as people start. To beef up their home offices, I spoke neurosurgeon Steve About Wafers unexpected success during this economic crisis and how that's changed their business practices. Let's start by taking back to sort of March. How did you begin to plan for presumably the worst at that point? What were some of the steps you took, Neeraj Yeah. So obviously, when covid started, there's a whole lot of uncertainty. We kind of decided a few things. One was, how do we keep our supply chain up and running? So we can take care of our customers. So we implemented a lot of safety protocols that actually worked out very well because we're able to keep running and keep everyone healthy. And Safe. Second thing is from a liquidity standpoint. We didn't know what was going to happen next. So we actually decided to raise money. So he raised five, hundred, thirty, five, million dollars in hindsight we didn't need. But at the time, you don't exactly know what's going to happen, and so we did that we did that very quickly over two week period, and so I think that put us in a in a great position, and then we had a big scramble to get everyone productively working from home who was involved with the supply chain, and so all of our three thousand people in customer service who corporate team, and so there was kind of. Like a bit of a of Mad Dash in the beginning to get everything well situated, but we have eighteen and they they they really rallied didn't a fantastic job. It sounds like you had anticipated that you were going to face a serious slowdown and that's why you raise the cash to presumably to help you through what you anticipated was going to be a slowdown down our worry was actually we didn't even know what the governmental regulations we're going to be my perhaps we'd be shut down. You know we we didn't actually know government sending what was essential what was not essential there's a question at some points about perhaps the carrier networks won't carry. Certain. Types of packages, not other types of packages and we knew so we didn't have answer, but we had uncertainty, and so we reacted to that and then the notion of a slowdown certainly was on on our minds. Obviously what's happened it's quite different but more of a boom but we didn't know that at the time

"It's like with the new owner should be able to come in there and flip that entire thing on its head. I would like to think yes, but, boy with the way you're talking, you sound like that That entire team is cursed for the rest of their existence. Is that what you're thinking? I look, the Wilpon ownership has not been fruitful for the New York and I think the hope in the expectation is that when you get new owners and their things are going to change now, Steve Cohen had a deal in place to buy the mats. You know, six months ago. I don't even know how long ago Now it was, but it was for $2.6 billion, and that deal ended up falling through because The Wilpons wanted to maintain some sort of control, not not a controlling stake, but they wanted to maintain a piece of the team for the next five years. And Steve Collins like No, No, no, I want your stink off this place. So deal falls through. Now it's down to Steve Cohen, who's back in the bidding, and Alex Rodriguez and Jennifer Lopez, which is going to be you know an awfully interesting Waiting to see who ends up getting this team one of the one of the important points here, pack a rod in jail on a rotten jail or bidding against Steve Cohen. Or there with Steve. Whatever they are. They're bidding against Steve Cohen. There they are Bidding alongside, like the Vitaminwater Guy 2.5 Million A rod, ease up. They've gotta have a quite a have a team around there like a financial. Yeah, Yeah, No, they got they got money. People listen, a Rod's worth money. J. Lo is worth a lot Oh, yeah, but but no, they've got like people whose net worths And with a bee around them like they're some billionaire's there in that and see the thing with Steve Cohen is he's a billionaire by himself. When you're the guy with the billions who is leading the group. It's much easier to, you know, to accept you as the moneyman that there's fear. Among baseball people that when you have someone at the forefront, who's not the main money person that that can end up being a fractured ownership group in that, Yeah, you don't want fighting among owners about who has control of the team, so there's always that that they want to avoid. But the Wilpons of the ones who were choosing who to sell this, too, and the indication is that Alex Rodriguez has no problem keeping Jeff Wilpon. On in some sort of Ah, you know, secondary or lower left where you do. It has zero desire to do that. So you've got you've got these elements with the Mets that have to do with the Wilpons continuing to remain in the pictures from a rock. What do you want? You want a chair? But Yeah, that's the one office. No problem at all, though I'm getting on a t me. I do. Whatever the hell you want to do a door to billion dollars and we stink and let me let me say this to you. You're shocked by the $2 billion number two. Million dollar numbers a $2 billion number for two reasons. New York That's AH, that's realistic. You have. It doesn't matter if it is a secondary professional team in New York. It's still a professional sports team in New York, and there's only but a hand a couple handfuls of those and they are Valuable because of the location before last night. How could he be that inept and still be worth? That's why that's why It's inspiring, I guess than idiots are able to make that much money, but it's still like, what are we doing here? I'm sorry. Good Jeff before last night, did Manfred like You think he was just sitting like I'm a really good, really, really good commission. And that came out last night. He was like, Wait. GM in this league. Think that about me or is he known this for a long time that people think that he just is a terrible leader? A no positive covert test games going on? I mean, Rob Manfred has knocked on a press conference where he's completely shoved his foot in his mouth lately, And then last night, all of a sudden, just ricochet shot Rob Manford on a hot mike. I wonder. Does he know that people hate him? That's great question digs. I just want to see digs do his rob Manford imitation again where he goes. Hey, I feel good about myself. Good. He knows like, you know, Rebecca is a very smart guy. There's self awareness there when Jeopardy. Smart. He's jeopardy. Smart, not wheel of fortune smart what you're saying? I mean, he's like lawyer smart, So there's like like this is you know what lawyer Smart is? Life? What is annoying, Smart. Yeah. You know what That is exactly what it is. It does feel like though the MLB After that early Marlins catastrophe, which we have, an inside source has told Zito the story if that's true. That'll get out some point and that would be wild to talk about is a sports talk show on a daily basis. But aside from that, a couple other teams that have had cases zero positive cases right now feels like they're having games. Some games. Aaron postpone trying to get to the playoffs. MLB has to be very, very satisfied with how the return to play has happened. I think you know they had the cardinal's outbreak to and that was no good, but they had a positive test with the Mets and that didn't spread. They've had positive tests. Ah, God, It's like it happened so frequently now the Reds and it didn't spread and the fact that they're now with no positive tests, and with a month left in the season, they're gonna bubble for the playoffs path where I'm gonna be. Yeah, I mean, it's gonna like the plan right now is at the end of the season for the last week. Even if you are at home, you're going to be staying in a hotel. And the reason for that is they want to essentially get these teams isolated from everyone so they can fly down to Texas or California. I think the NFL playoffs are going to be in Houston in Arlington is the plan The Ale playoffs are going to be In L, A. And San Diego perhaps, and they are going to, uh, you know, they're gonna They're gonna bubble essentially and then the world Siri's at this point, and all likelihood is going to be neutral Site. Arlington, Texas, Not in stone yet, but Players air are talking about it. They're getting through the details that include hair. We're going to be allowed to bring families in and what the protocol is going to be. But I think at this point a bubble is a fate accompli and baseball will have made it through the regular season. Ah, hopefully and there, I would guess that this point I'm up to 75%. They're going to crown a champion this year, and that's a lot higher than I would have ever thought I was going to say you were super negative med there for a long time. But now you're saying photo fate accomplish a fado? What is that? What was that? Fate accompli. That means we're doing it. Rob Manfred would know what that means. Yeah, he's thinks so..

"Though. Morita the question of when it comes on when you're younger than athlete will. Your bigger during the goal is to achieve. Actually I was just thinking about this. I used to have this like. I don't know way back when when you had like. Msn Messenger thing or ICQ like those instant messaging things on your computer like my little bio thing was like pro volleyballer end like it was kind of a joke. 'cause like I didn't even know what that meant at the time. Just like yeah. That sounds good. Like Appropriately but had no idea like how it was going to get there what that bed so I guess I was always like kind of an idea in the head but actually was kind of a nerd in high school actually was planning to be a chemist I went to university with the intention of that and volleyball took over my life so okay so when you say you're going to be him if like how do you feel that working out like Nafta type stuff like why can't we be wasn't entirely sure but I just chemistry high school. I started my first year at college in my hometown. Action with the intention doing or years volleyball but graduating ending chemistry after the whole course life change. That's awesome so so you had your MFN bio theme Pro Volleyball Claire. So when you wrote that in life started happening had you start thin are i. How can I make this reality? Yeah I think Actually like I was just trying to remember when I started playing volleyball. I think I was about while which is crazy now to think about says while is actually been two decades now. I've been playing volleyball thirty. Two ounce so yeah. It's Kinda crazy but I think the starting kind of jump off point for me was when I made team be see from. Abc and I made that provincial team when I was like or teen I think and Is your calling you very raw. Was the word they used for Terrible but I jumped really high back then. I guess I'd potential so they took me and I didn't interview That year the year after something for them I think it had something like one day. I WANNA wear like a maple leafs on my back in fourteen candidate ahead said that Ben in nearly no like what it took to get there but eventually became a path so dover I know there's Tony was the have the application you know. They say. I want to be in Olympia and I WANNA don't own and do all these things. People atoms dry. Yeah like you can't do that to. How did you keep your mind? That like may laugh at my drain on a chase them all like originally when I started playing volleyball. I didn't even really WANNA play Bible like I started dance when I was like three years old. So I dance all the way up until the end of my high school. And my mom had kinda like encourage Mir Gently pushed me to play volleyball and at the time like basketball. More which is binding workers like ended up deciding basketball's too much running for me so I ended up. I was doing all three things. That was dancing. Anos playing volleyball and basketball into high school and then I can window basketball and then faced out dance. Bowling Ball's seemed like a better future option to go with so I started college. I graduated sixteen so a super young and I had offers to go to other schools like in the states and other Kadian universities ended up wanting to just stay home and I had really good the program at it was actually called back in but it's the UCLA now University of British Columbia Okanagan so that was in Colona and the coach was Steve. Manual was one of my mentor coaches still to this day. He kind of had a big role to play in my progression volleyball. So after my first year there recruited to go to U B C in Vancouver with Doug Rhymer in his team and it was kind of scary. Move to consider and I went to a two years with Steve Cohen than ended up making a transfer to UC Vancouver in coober into the it's called CIS fact then it's like all changed Old Sport now like a Canadian University system so I ended up going there my third year and after my first year there. I actually got invited to try out for the national team so just kind of like crazy because after my first year. Ub See a lot of the players on ABC. Were playing on the national team or not was. Kinda like became more of a realistic goal. I guess you'd say and I was like you know maybe after a couple more years like chance tryout and it was just kind of a really strange process how I ended up getting a tryout and then ended up making it and as when I was nineteen and so things just took off from there. Wow so he graduated at fifteen Lloyd. just win for team into transitioning to the next level. Yeah so like when I started I was still kind of didn't really have the idea like my first year. I was like okay. I'm going to chemistry and whatever tall Canadian still pretty nerdy. Still Pretty that. I think when I got recruited to go to the CIS and go play for a UPC IN VANCOUVER. That was kind of like okay. Maybe things can kind of progressing go ahead and they gotta also the gentle nudge from my coach. There Steve Manual. That you know you can stay here but basically I'm kicking out because I want you to go play at the higher level and Sierra potential so that was kind of Mike Start off point in the program with Doug Rhymer Jesse Knight was coach at the time and they really Hannah propelled my career in and getting me onto the national team and then I ended up finishing up two more years with. Ub See we won two national championships back to back. Actually and then they went onto win for more after I graduated in a row but Selena was kind of the start of my national team career when I was nineteen and then just retired from that like a year ago. So I'm relying on your La- calendar something you said if you ride a story about your journey it will be. I believe instead a decade of venture. But when you when you wrote that in your mind what we've thinking it's just kind of funny actually because I saw graduated from U B C in two thousand nine and then a number of the national team and then went to play pro for my first season abroad. Enso's like the two thousand nine going into two thousand. Ten was my first year in Europe. I was in Spain and the Canary Islands with my teammates Page and it was just like my funniest stories of life and pro. Come from this season it was just like so ridiculous in so many ways home at Christmas. Like almost didn't come back but when back and finish it out and yeah just finding those kind of the start of my career so the last decade now as I go back and forth on wrapping up in this decade. But yet it's just been. I've been all over Europe late in the Philippines. It's been ten years eleven years with team Canada and yet it's just been a lot of adventures all over the world so I think that sums it up for me your password. Kobe just ridiculous. I've had to in that time. Also pretty full of awesome so going back to the volleyball in making the kind of play with higher compensation had you again was an adjustment to your mentality how you approached the game or the always the same I think definitely I mean developed. I think even from kind of a young age I had like sort of athletic discipline instilled into me. If you from LIKE DANCE. Three in that was like a very disciplined Pity so I think I just always kind of had that. I think that's just part of my character. Personality is kind of like the athlete mindset but definitely like as I progressed higher up in levels that kind of became more of like my dreams once I made team Canada became okay analysis become an Olympian and so that was the focus and that sort of worked towards a win to two Olympic qualifiers A. Twenty twelve in two thousand sixteen. Very narrowly missed the twenty. Sixteen qualification end. So that was pretty heartbreaking but that was kind of the goal that was like why played volleyball was always to hopefully get to the Olympics. One day and that was Kinda what fueled him what. Push me through a lot of difficult times for sure and persevered through a lot of things and a lot of crazy seasons abroad in Europe pro. And and all that but Yeah I think that was always. My dream unfortunately didn't happen but had a lot of a lot of adventures along the way trying to get

She confronts him. I know she doesn't work for CNN or MSNBC, or the Knicks limes of the Washington compost, all the rest of it. She works for the daily caller is I recall. She's a real reporter.

"It's not a waste of time impeachment proceedings. We need to take vote and then live with what the vote is for the rest of our lives. Well that just fixes everything impeachment proceedings, not a waste takeout, and then live with that vote for the rest of our lives. What what are you bet? And I mean, seriously, what are you bet at the vote doesn't come out the way they wanted to come out that they'll continue to then go down the path of trying to store the president. I'm just just suicide note here, I wonder what it's going to be. What do what do you bet? Right. Pelosi agrees. Now that the US is also facing a constitutional crisis. She's saying got this constitutional crisis. Now. So the drumbeat towards impeachment is very very very clear. All Democrats seem to be on board to advocate for this. Let's do it. Let's go. We got impeach. And they're going to they're going to get there. They're going to get there in the house. This is going to happen.

"Didn't work. Give me your thoughts on this. Rick. I've just got one question. Why is gotta be so many of these special interest government type Bruce now, there's this LGBTQ grew out of Texas in the government. I don't understand it. I thought that you know, holidays were elected tours represent us. All. And not not anymore. It's it's who gets me elected in I represent them and everybody else can pretty much go to hell. Well, I mean, look at Steve Cohen, great example, Steve Cohen is is has isolated so many of his constituents. If you even ask him a question, I keep blacks you on social media. He only responds the people that love him are obsessed with them. I mean, I mean, literally, I mean, Mr. relevant in Washington chicken little Steve Cohen is is a guy that spends his time trolling people like me telling, you know, getting it supporters who come after me who literally tell me to Email anatomy to do it. And then he defends them and says these proud that he supports them. And when they tell me this this is Steve Cohen. So the point is it really just kind of answered it south. You get my point one of my kids calls his office every week every week. Well, be careful the block you that your kids number soon. She started getting some weird calls and stuff like that. Yeah. Even a middle initial and she said, I never told them what my middle initial was. They trust me. They got government info they can get on anybody. They want my friend. I just don't understand all this special. I I would I would I don't understand is why it has become so contentious to the point where they literally wanted to you know, shut down businesses and flex their muscles. Like a accomplish something. That's what I don't understand. I mean, what chick fillet does not discriminate against people nothing. They don't do anything to discriminate. And their chickens, really good too. There. There are a lot. And I mean, a lot of companies that may not agree with me. Right. I mean, there are there are a lot of companies that may not agree with me. And what I believe in. I may not agree with them. I still go there. I feel if it's a restaurant. I have no idea what some restaurants believe in. Right. But it doesn't really matter to me because I'm not psycho. Now, if they directly come after me, then maybe I'd be more concerned. But if but but I have no idea when I go eat where most companies are giving their money to 'cause I'm going for the food. Right. And I also their their family owned company family owned business like Chick-fil-A is they have a right to be liberal. They have a right to be agnostic. They have a right to be any religion. They wanna be I'm going there for the food. I'm not a crazy person. Darkening event, I gotta go to work. Thank you, brother. Good luck. You gotta work hard for all those people on welfare five three five nine seven three to five three five nine seven three two eight hundred number one eight hundred four seven four nine seven three to get more on this mortar phone calls just want to read a couple of different things that are coming in real quick on this one. One of you just said. Then I am a woman who has had a partner for more than thirty years. What you don't understand about? The reason why. We all go support chick fillet. Is that many of us know, the Chick-fil-A thinks that we should not exist. Again. That's not true. When did when did Chick-fil-A come out saying that you as a human being should not exist? They never said it. I deal with facts here. That's why it's never been said Chick-fil-A did not say gay people should exist. They've never said that in fact, in many ways Chick-fil-A really just doesn't talk much about politics. They shut up about it. The reason why they shut up about is. Because of these exact extreme exaggerations like from people just like you. This is exactly why. This is exactly why people roll their eyes and go. Are you kidding me? This is why. I'll go back to the comment from from this person. I cannot go to a store and shop at a place did thinks that me and my wife should not be together. And again, I know one saying you can't do that. But that's your free will I'm not saying you can't do that. So what is the big problem here? She tells me what the big problem is. From a perspective of an airport. I should not be forced to go into an airport where there is a company that believes that my life should be banned. No, one said your life should be banned. That's also ally you're going to the extreme. That's not true. I should not be subjected to bigoted organizations if I'm a student on at a public university either..

"The president. And more importantly, I respected the will of my fellow citizens, and I respect him. And I don't think she should have, you know. Look, look good. Steve Cohen today. Great example. Okay. Steve Cohen, I think is is a total hack. You look at Steve Cohen and what he did today. He he wants to get rid of the electoral college, and he wants to because he doesn't like the president doesn't like the fact that the president one in a free and fair election. So he wants to abolish the electoral college, which would go against our constitution. I have a problem with Steve Cohen doing that. Because Steve Cohen again didn't get his way. His get his way. So he wants to overthrow the government. That's not how this country works. Well, let me say that we got the respect his opinion. Just like, we respect yours. Correct. It's not an issue of an opinion. That's where you're mixing to you're mixing completely different things. I don't have a problem with someone having an opinion. Donald Trump referring to baseball players as SOB's is an opinion. Okay. He didn't. He didn't say the government should go in there and arrest them. He didn't say the government should make sure they're never allowed to play football. Again. He didn't advocate for passing a law. That says any player that Neal's is banned from playing football for life. That's what Democrats are trying to do when they say we're gonna impeach that. That mother effort. Yeah. There is a difference. One is giving an opinion one is actually tried to overthrow government. If the president would have come out there and said, I'm going I'm going to introduce legislation that bans four life football players who Neil I would be against that. There's a difference between a an opinion and and trying to pass legislation to overthrow are to take away the job of someone or to pass legislation overthrow present solely because you don't like him. That is not how freedom works. You have the freedom to an opinion. It doesn't mean you had the free, and you and we have election you have the ability to get Donald Trump out of office and less than two years. If you want to. You don't get to overthrow government. Because you didn't.
