A highlight from 117: Part 2: Charles Lutz Takes on Unpopular Causes from Vietnam to DEA to TSA
"Did you ever get any chatter that he was still alive, you know, anywhere? Well we, we, we looked for him. I had information he was actually a fled to Irania Perthet, which is a town on the Cambodian border in Thailand. And so I actually wanted investigative assistance and I went up there and spent a couple of days at a picture of Sukhri and checked out all the bars and massage parlors and whatever, see if we could find him. And, and we never did. But the other case I was going to mention, I think you might find interesting, is while I was doing this undercover thing with Sukhri, the agent who was handling the Herman Jackson, Ike Atkinson case in Bangkok, which is a group of, of retired military NCA, NCOs that were, had been smuggling heroin back to the States. That agent was transferred back to the States. And then in those days, every case had to have an agent assigned to it, if only to write status reports. So my boss, Paul Brown, dumped this Atkinson case on me and I thought, oh man, what, I got enough to do. But it actually turned out to be a blessing because I, I, I guess after a few days, got a call from San Francisco from an agent, Lionel Stewart, and there had been a couple of, of guys in, arrested in Japan, military, US Army guys, and they, one of them flipped and identified his source of supply as the bartender at a bar owned in Bangkok by this Herman Jackson. So I thought, wow, you know, maybe, maybe we can make something in this case after all. Long story short, Lionel came over and we made, he actually made an undercover purchase of heroin from the source of supply. We, we got him to San Francisco where he was arrested and he ended up, I mean, it's a long story, but we ended up being able to, with some of the evidence we got through that case, we were able to prosecute Atkinson in North Carolina. You gotta, you gotta understand, Morgan, this guy's talking about Lionel Stewart. So when I get to Miami and Charles here is the ASAC, we had two associate SACs and one of them was Lionel Stewart. This guy was a shuckin' and jivin' character. I mean, he was hilarious, black gentleman, would not cut anybody's slack. He, you know, he called a spade a spade and he did it to your face, he did it behind your back, but he was hilarious. I mean, he would just entertain. You could see how the guy could work undercover. I mean, he could sell ice to an Eskimo, you know, that kind of attitude. Yeah. Well, in my book, I call him the professor of undercover science. There you go. That's a good title.
Fresh update on "stewart" discussed on WTOP 24 Hour News
"Shana Stewart, WTOP News. It is 1230 for the death of Senator Dianne Feinstein. It left a vacancy in the Senate that California's Governor Gavin Newsom must now fill and he's facing a lot of pressure as he figures out who to appoint there. Feinstein's death leaves Senate Democrats with no margin for error, a functional majority of just 50 seats. But while Newsom has done it before, he's openly said, before Feinstein's death, he did not want the task replacing her. Nonetheless, Newsom promised in 2021, as concerns grew about Feinstein's health, that he would appoint a black woman. He's also promised to avoid the field of candidates already running for Feinstein's seat, which was set to expire at the end of next year. That field includes Representative Barbara Lee, one of the state's most prominent black elected officials. I'm Ben Thomas. Speaking of the California governor with a veto, Newsom says the state will not offer unemployment checks to residents on strike. This comes after the Democratic governor strikes down a bill which would have made California the third state to offer that. Newsom says he rejected the bill because the fund the state would use to pay unemployment benefits isn't debt. Labor unions say the payment wouldn't impact that fund. Lawmakers could attempt to pass the law anyway, but it's been decades since a governor's veto was overruled in California. Coming up after traffic and weather here on WTOP, the weather records that were broken in the Big Apple in the last couple days, the 1236. Here's Congressman Jamie Raskin, S. the U Representative for Maryland's 8th District on the discussion of Better Tomorrow, tackling the crisis of mental health in American children, sponsored by Children's Hospital Association. I think there's been great between interaction the federal officials involved and the state and local officials. I know certainly I've followed it closely in Maryland where there's been excellent efforts to integrate the local and regional response structure. In fact, there is legislation in Maryland that they named after Tommy that allows people to sign up for, they've gone through a mental health crisis. They've talked to someone and they've been put in a better frame of mind, in a better place. They can ask for someone to call them regularly on a monthly basis, on a weekly basis.

A highlight from Bank of America Military Affairs with Lindsey Streeter
"Army veteran Lindsey Streeter leads the Military Affairs Strategy at Bank of America. He joined the Bank of America family in 2016 upon retiring from the U .S. Army as a highly decorated command sergeant major with 31 years of military service. He's been a leading voice in Bank of America's commitment to recruit, develop, and retain military talent, and Lindsey was recently named 2023 Veteran of the Year by the Military Times. Coming up next on Veteran on the Move. Welcome to Veteran on the Move. If you're a veteran in transition, an entrepreneur wannabe, or someone still stuck in that J -O -B trying to escape, this podcast is dedicated to your success. And now, your host, Joe Crane. As a member of Not -for -Profit, Navy Federal puts members at the heart of every single thing they do. Find out more at navyfederal .org. Alright, we're talking with Army veteran retired command sergeant major Lindsey Streeter, who leads the Military Affairs Strategy at Bank of America. Also, the 2023 Veteran of the Year by Military Times. Wow, what an awesome award there and great title. So, Sergeant Major Lindsey, thanks for being here today. Before we get to talk about all the great things Bank of America is doing for hiring America's veterans, take us back, tell us what you did in the Army. How many years was it, 33, 34? Hey, Joe Crane, I'll tell you what, man. I appreciate the opportunity to be on the show here today. And yeah, it was just a little north of 31 years that I did. Started out as a logistician, was an Army parts guy. Spent a lot of time in aviation units, you know, chasing Black Hawk helicopters around, trying to keep them flying, and I did that for 10 years, and then I transitioned over into recruiting command where I absolutely found my niche there as an Army recruiter. Ran a couple of recruiting stations, found a lot of success running those stations, a lot of promotions that came along with that, and ascended into leadership in recruiting command, ran the Army recruiting school, ran two companies as a first sergeant, and I was tagged to go to the Sergeant Major's Academy. Came out of the academy and pinned on Command Sergeant Major and headed up to Nashville, Tennessee, to head the Nashville recruiting battalion there and part of the command team there. Did that for about three and a half years, and then the Army saw fit to bring me out into training and doctrine command to run a leadership academy to round out my career, so I served as the commandant of the NCO Academy down here at Fort Stewart, Georgia, where I retired and then smoothly transitioned over into Bank of America. Yeah, so Bank of America was your first job out of the Army? It was. It was. I had a soldier that had worked for me about nine years earlier, and he had been with the bank about a year and a half, and he called me one day. I was driving home trying to contemplate whether or not I was going to retire or take another position in the Army, a nominal position as a sergeant major, and I got a call asking me to send him a resume. I believe there's a little divine intervention at play there because I prayed a prayer for some guidance with regards to transitioning, and I got the phone call and I quickly crafted a resume and sent it in, and said he something that was profound to me. He began to talk about the company, but he knew me very well, and he said to me that you fit here at this company, and I don't believe there was any more profound of a statement that could have been said to me. I think when veterans are transitioning, they're oftentimes looking for an organization that they believe they'll go there and do good, but where do you fit? Well, within that organization, and my colleague believed that from what he knew about me and my traits of character, there'd be a perfect marriage with me coming to Bank of America, and I thank goodness that he gave me that call. Yeah, no kidding. I mean, talk about using your network. I mean, a guy I know used to work with him in the Army. He's there. He brought me in. I'm good. I mean, that's how you get a job right there, but let's face it. Most guys aren't that lucky. I mean, you know, especially nine years before you're eight, you've actually kept in touch with him, and it worked, but ultimately that's the golden goose right there. Yeah, that's the formula. I think if they know you and then they know the organization, it automatically triggers in their mind where to stop on the Rolodex when they begin to seek referrals to bring it to the company. So I was thankful that he thought of me, and he got it right. Absolutely. Now, over the years I've heard a number of things with Bank of America, and before we hit the record button, I was talking with you about, over and over we talk about transition and getting out and getting a job. A lot of us want to go into entrepreneurship, run our own business, but let's face it. Some of us, if you're the main breadwinner, you've got to go get a JOB in the meantime and work on something on the side. So transitioning and getting a job as you get out of the military is definitely something you still end up having to do even though you want to run your own show. And some folks think, oh, you're retiring. You're a member of the Paycheck of the Month Club. What stress do you have, man? You already got a check coming in, whatever. Sometimes it's harder to find a job when you're retired from the Army because you're older, you're stuck in your own ways, you've never done anything else with the Army. You're kind of boxed in, and companies are looking at you like, well, what can you do for me? You spent almost all of your adult life in the Army. It can be much more difficult to convince a company that you can still speak civilian and you're able to put on a suit and you're able to show up to work and blend in, and sometimes it is harder, you know? Yeah, Joe, you really touched on a few things that I found were a challenge, and we continue to, as we invite new talent into the company, to work on these veterans with those attributes of assimilation, as I call them, demonstrated assimilation. You know, less than 1 % of the country serves, and so we're scared when we go in, but we're absolutely horrified when it comes time to take the uniform off and to depart. And, you know, so you're entering a realm of the 99 % that did not serve, and so what you owe to them is not for them to bend to you, but for you to bend and mold and become one of them and to really demonstrate that. And I believe it begins with being humble during your interview, especially as a senior leader in transition. You know, a lot of times we want to boast about our leadership ability and leadership demonstrate capability because of our past and those things that are contained within our resume. And those companies, if you can lead, they're going to afford you an opportunity to lead, but what they want to know is can they trust you with their brand and reputation of this company? Can you get here and humble yourself enough and be vulnerable enough so that they can hang some skills on you and you can demonstrate business acumen and how to dress and how to really work in a collaborative environment that's demanded by corporate America? And so I thank goodness I had some coaching and some grooming to help me with those things, and I work for a company that spends a lot of time trying to get that right. And what we do is we've invested into the scaffolding that's required to ensure that our veterans smoothly transition. So we charged ourselves with not just joining a crowd of being veteran friendly, but we wanted to demonstrate that we're veteran ready, and we did that by, or we do that by being meticulous in our selection process up front. We want to give the veteran the best opportunity to succeed at the company, and we do that by matching up their skill sets with an opening in the company. So we want to get this right fit piece fixed from the beginning. And then we want to make sure that the living room is straight inside the house. And so we have a robust ERG in our military support and assistance group that helps us with onboarding of our veterans, and we pair them up with a more tenured and seasoned veteran, and they hold their hands for about the first 90 days that they're here just to get them through the fits and jerks of assimilation. And it's a soft space, right? It allows them to ask the stupid questions to match a pair of loafers with a belt, you know, to understand which color suit pattern that they need to wear. And so it's those sorts of things that they feel like they can feel safe and feel welcome while they're going through that transition. And what we're hopeful is that what we're seeing is that it closes the back door, and we know that because we survey them. We use employee satisfaction surveys, and we gauge the morale and the motivation of our veteran cohort that way. And so we're proud of that work that we put into those challenging times. And the other thing is that, you know, we have a problem with our resumes and bridging the gaps, bridging our skill sets. And so we know that, we understand that, and we try and take that into account when we're placing talent that those resumes may have gaps in them, that they may be missing pertinent information. And so we've invested in a veteran recruiter that helps us to look at those resumes in detail and tell the story that the veteran's resume may not be telling. Absolutely. Hold that thought. We're going to take a quick break. We'll be right back.
Fresh update on "stewart" discussed on WTOP 24 Hour News
"931. This is WTOP News. Everything you need every time you listen. The WTOP producers desk is wired by IBEW Local 26 where electrical contractors come to grow. Good morning, I'm Dan Ronen. Matt Small is our producer this morning. The top stories that we're following for you here at WTOP. Congress has averted a government shutdown. The Senate approved a short term spending bill passed earlier by the House. It happened only hours before the midnight deadline. It was signed by President Biden WTOP's Mitchell Miller has today on the hill. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer says after difficult called Days of Uncertainty. Bipartisanship which has been the trademark of the Senate has prevailed and the American people can breathe a sigh of relief. The Senate's top Republican Mitch McConnell had advocated for a short term spending bill and he's glad it was ultimately agreed to. It gives us time to continue a number of important discussions about outstanding priorities. One of those priorities at least in the is Senate funding for Ukraine. The bill does not include aid for Ukraine but lawmakers agreed to take that up at a later date. House Speaker Kevin McCarthy brought up the stopgap measure and over the objections of Conservatives got passed it in the House with the overwhelming support of Democrats. He says he had little choice after exhausting in other efforts. If you have members in your conference that won't let you vote for appropriation bills and won't vote for a stopgap so the only answer is to shut down and not pay our troops. I don't want to be a part of that team. The legislation extends Even And as Congress has a temporary plan to keep the government running many are saying there has to be a better way. It's the equivalent of knowing you're going to eat a whole loaf of bread but you buy the bread loaf slice by slice. Max Steyer, President of the non -partisan group Partnership for Public Service says continuing resolutions are disruptive and It's a bizarre world that if they don't do their job they still get paid but those that work for them don't. He says even better would be for Congress to figure a out way to create multi -year appropriations so this funding showdown doesn't happen so often. If Congress can't come to a deal in November hundreds of thousands of workers around the country many in this area would go without a paycheck and some government programs and agencies would take a hit like the IRS and the National Park Service. Shana Stewart, WTOP A Capitol Hill lawmaker is catching some heat after he admits he pulled a fire alarm just The House was preparing to vote. The office of Democratic Congressman Jamaal Bowman confirms he pulled the fire an alarm alarm in a in Capitol Office building ahead of that last -minute House vote. A spokesman says he quote did not realize he would trigger a building alarm as he was rushing to make an urgent vote adding that he regrets it. He pulled it just after noon and the building was evacuated while Capitol police officers checked it. It's unclear why Bowman pulled the fire alarm but House Speaker Kevin McCarthy called it an embarrassment. CBS News reporter Matt Piper. It's October and millions of Americans must start repaying their federal student loans with the monthly payments averaging potentially hundreds of dollars a month. Many borrowers say they're cutting expenses taking on additional federal side jobs and looking for options to reduce their monthly payments. Back in July the Supreme Student loan debt. It's not clear though how the student loan repayments will impact the U .S. economy. Stay tuned. California won't be getting unemployment checks to its workers who are on strike such as the tuned. actors. While the state lawmakers passed a bill in Sacramento to make California the third state to do do this. The Democratic Governor Gavin Newsom vetoed the bill Saturday he says he rejected this because because the fun that the state uses to pay unemployment insurance is in debt. It comes from a tax on businesses that has not been changed since 1984. Labor unions argue that the striking workers should would be eligible for the benefits because this wouldn't have much of an impact on the fun lawmakers could vote to override the governor but it's been decades since a governor in California has been overridden on a veto.

A highlight from Session 6 Evangelism
"Come to Lecture 4, now your notes for this I do not think are too valuable. You just got blanks there to fill out. Unless you've got a magnifying glass, you're not going to be able to read them. You probably can read it, all right. One of my ladies who was helping me do this came up with the idea, why don't we do it this way? We did that one and never got back to changing it. So I didn't like it, so I don't think they're any more like that, I hope not. All right, evangelism in the New Testament church, what do we find about that? And I mentioned that we had noted briefly some truths about the book of Acts and the growth of the New Testament church. And so here we're going to go into this matter of the growth in the New Testament church. The period covered by the Acts, about 30 years. Usher's Chronology mentions that it's AD 33 to AD 63. With this in mind, we see how intense was the activity of the early church. have I do a note by Dr. Stewart. The church in its first 25 years of existence accomplished more than at any other time in the history of Christianity. The startling fact is this, that if the apostolic church had continued as she began, she would have evangelized the world in the first few centuries. The church began on fire for God. Now the church had a very small beginning, the challenging test for the New Testament church. There are various tests that we have, the church had a small beginning. 120 members starting out, met in the upper room. From a human standpoint, that little group was doomed to failure. They could have said, will anyone believe our message? We are presenting Jesus of Nazareth, a man who died an ignominious death on a criminal's cross. Will anybody listen to us? We are preaching that just Jesus arose literally from the dead. We believe He's the Son of God. Will they hear that? They could have done that. They didn't do it, but they could have. Not only did they have a small beginning, the church lived in a hostile atmosphere. Everywhere they turned, a dreadful atmosphere. Acts chapter 4, in Acts 4 you find the priests and the captains of the temple and the Sadducees were grieved that they taught the people in the name and preached through Jesus the resurrection of the dead. Acts chapter 4, what is it, verse 2 I guess. They put them in jail, questioned them the next day. They heard Peter's clear message that Jesus Christ is the stone which the builders rejected. He's the only savior, verse 12, for there is none of the name under heaven given among men whereby we must be saved. A hostile atmosphere. Everything about it was opposed to them. The priests commanded them not to preach their message any longer. The message of Christ and they threatened them if they did. Thank God they said, well, regardless of what you say, we're going to go right on. We're going to preach the Word of God and take our stand for Christ. It's interesting how the church grows when persecution comes. It may be that the best thing that can happen to the church in America is persecution.

"Hall and then they'll go to the restaurant across the street right so what we do is bring this stimulus to New York City which we're always happy to do and we have a lot of fun with doing it and then we have a big event which is Stand Up for Heroes which kind of opens up the festival this year on November 6th so we have Jimmy Carr there, Tracy Morgan, Rita Wilson will be singing, Shane Gillis, Ronny Chang, Jon Stewart who's a constant there and also Josh Groban and John Mellencamp. That's so cool. How do you think about when you put it together 17 years and running? Talk to us about like how it's evolved. Oh it's 19 years. The festival is 19 years and 17 years for Stand Up for Heroes but it's 19 years next year we're having a big big blowout the 20th year in New York City. Wow. You know we start the day after we finish here we start for next year actually we're trying to secure venues ready for next year you know our big shows at Madison Square Garden so we do that constantly. Can you know it's it's we don't often because we have a global audience here on the program. Do we really? Yeah we do. I had no idea Yeah that's some comedy for you. Don't hold it kidding. Looking into the control room to see if they can save me. Stop! They're laughing in there. But we do and we you know we have a national audience as well. So why are we talking about something here in New York? Well because a lot of people from all over the world and all over the country come to this. Talk a little bit about who this attracts and and sort of where New York is right now in the comedy scene. Because you know there there are people are who saying you know okay LA is you know a classic place for comedy. You've got Joe Rogan and Austin doing his thing. You know trying to make Austin comedy happen. Where do you stand on all this? You know you can never negate New York. Okay. You can't take the New Yorker as a good New Yorker. No it's here it's it's here here's where it starts. This is where you get the creative juices. This is where you get the ideas. You know the whole thing with LA was that you know which is not so quite in fashion right now is to go out there to get your sitcom. That's that's not really happening anymore. Now it's like... Wasn't happening over the last five months without the writers strike I can tell you that. I guess they're back. That's a really good point because you did see a lot of comics for a long time right get a series and then just move to television. But now the touring that goes on when you have a great special that's on TV you take that and you go on the road and that's your millions of dollars that these people you know comedians are making on the road when you're selling out Beacon Theatres, Carnegie Hall when you're selling out The Garden. This is like this is big bucks. So it's a big big business for a lot of people that really have you know made it and are able to tour around the country. Can we talk about the business of comedy and I think about you know last December your iconic club right you did not renew your lease it's spot in Times Square. How hard was that? You know I wanted to stay and then there was a part of me which did not to want stay because of the way and I'm out I don't want to put down Times Square because I went there thirty years ago to build it up and I was part of that the renovation of Times Square and full the of renewal Times Square. So I'm not going to put it down but things were changing there the city was changing I felt that after COVID the whole seascape there was changing and I I said said let me step back I own the brand I want to take the brand I'm extending it through the festival and we then have other ideas where we're going with that. Okay give us some of those other ideas. Yeah well you know we're taking the Caroline's brand and you know kind of producing content and putting it out there and specials and everything else that we do with comedy on a grander scale. I mean it really was the end of an era for you not to renew your lease there. Well yeah yeah I was there 30 years in Times Square. So I mean Times Square changed a lot in 30 years and it changed a lot just in a few years because of the pandemic. Talk to us a little bit about the you know what happened and the decision -making process and the external factors there too. Okay so obviously I went to my landlord and I go listen we need some relief here. You know things have changed a lot so can you? He goes no Actually we really want to raise the rent. So I said oh but you know there's so many repairs that have to be done. I'm here for 30 years you know air conditioning electrical work right just things needed to be upgraded and he said well that's just what the deal is and I tried very hard to stay there and then he just said well I'm out of here now. I'm done. I have other things to Did do. you look for other physical spaces? No but I have to tell you that we had so much press when we closed that so many real estate developers called me and said I have spaces for you and I will even help you build it out.
A highlight from Data sanitization for the data nation, Verity ES Podcast
"This is Doug Green, and I'm the publisher of Telecom Reseller. And this is a special podcast for the ASCDI NTR publications. And I want to welcome Glenn Jacobson of Verity ES. Glenn, thank you for joining us today. Thanks for having me, Doug. And I also want to welcome Kevin Enders, also of Verity ES. Kevin, thank you for joining us. All right. Thanks, guys, for coming. And we're going to be learning a lot about ITAD today. We're going to be learning a lot about data erasure. We're going to be talking about some of the issues facing not only the ITAD and reseller community, but actually the broader reseller, possibly carry community, really everybody who has to manage or dispose of products that have had been exposed to data. So we're going to be diving into that in just a minute. But first of all, what is Verity ES? So Verity ES is a data erasure software application that was born out of a parent company called Revert Inc. Revert has been a, it's a company, the core competency is data sanitization and it's founded in 2007. They've been doing these types of services since then. And a primary foundation of that service was to perform onsite services because data sanitization is really about protecting customer information, personal, personal identifiable information. And one of the best ways to mitigate the risk of a data breach is to do everything on site. So Revert got its start doing, delivering services to large financial services companies, healthcare organizations, telcos, and other highly regulated industries that have to perform the erasure of data to meet specific standards. So for financial services, it would be something like Sarbanes -Oxley or FISMA from a healthcare perspective, you've got HIPAA high tech, and you have the various PUC rules and regulations around utilities. And by doing this on site, and over the 20 some years that Revert has been doing this, they're not only doing data sanitization, but they're also doing ITS at this position at the enterprise. So they're handling assets that go all the way up and down the information stack. So all the way from tablets and mobile phones, which are really important now in our environment after coming out of the pandemic with bringing your own device, you've got a lot of hybrid working environments, but we're hybrid cloud, public, private cloud, and how are you managing the data and the assets that are within all these different disparate data processing environments. And over these 20 years, what Revert did in doing data sanitization is again, doing this across the information stack, all the way from the desktop, laptop, all the way to the enterprise storage system, even including virtual tape libraries. And one of the things that was found is that with the proliferation of storage media, you've got spinning disk, you have flash disk, you have solid state disk. Even in printers, you have hard disk drives, you have solid state disk drives. In network devices, you have SD cards or compact flash cards. Smart TVs have built in storage, and even cell phones. So smartphones, Blackberries, they have SIM cards. All of these different storage mediums store personally identifiable information. They can store TCP IP addresses, they can store customer information. They can store account numbers, billing information. And all of this is wrapped into how do you protect this data across different industry regulations. We talked about HIPAA and high tech, but there's also European regulations, GDPR. California's new data privacy laws are based on the EU GDPR regulations. And so our business to go and sanitize those assets and either prepare those for the customer to either return to the vendor, if it's like a lease return or something like that, a technology refresh, or to pass down to an ITAD to perform their activities, we found that not one single data sanitization application worked for every single situation, every single storage medium. So what Revert ended up having to do is literally take a toolkit of all different types of commercial off -the -shelf data sanitization applications, all different types of downloadable applications, tools, utilities, methodologies, even the use of low -level SCSI and ATA commands to be able to sanitize various different types of storage media. And so again, about five years ago, the company said, you know, rather than having all these different disparate tools and processes and procedures, wouldn't it be great to develop an internal tool that could do it all itself? And that's how Verity ES was born. So Verity ES was developed to be able to handle all types of different storage media, all different types of IT assets, again, from the laptop, desktop, all the way to the enterprise storage array. It can handle disk drives coming out of printers and fax machines. It can handle smartphones and tablets and things like that. So that again, doing it on site, the assets are sanitized before they ever leave the four walls of the facility. Again, part of our business is also ITAD. So in doing the work that an ITAD does in terms of performing data sanitization, being able to, for example, grade assets based on their marketability. How do you refurbish it, remarket, resell it to maximize the residual value recovery of that asset when it's being sold? One thing that's very important is the storage media. If you're not able to sanitize the storage media that comes out of, say, a five drive server, you automatically, without those drives, the resale value of that asset automatically drops anywhere from 25 to 35%. So if you're able to sanitize the drive without doing anything else to the drive, without impacting the firmware or the specific configuration associated with that server, it maximizes the residual value recovery for the ITAD. It makes it easier for them to be able to resell those assets at its highest value. And that allows an ITAD to do that. The other thing we find with enterprises is that some of them want to do it themselves. And so Verity ES is able to actually be that one application that they can use for all of their information lifecycle assets throughout the enterprise to do it themselves. So that's where Verity ES comes from. So Kevin, it sounds like there's a sort of known unknown, as they say, and there's almost even the unknown unknown. And it's not just for ITAD. It's not just for the people in the reseller community. Glenn brought up very significantly that lots of other companies, especially enterprises, might be disposing of equipment. I was fascinated by learning how many things could be exposed. Monitors, something that was used basically for TV or videos. Printers, fax machines, possibly, I guess. It could be, or even phones. A lot of stuff that's basically... And the reason I'm bringing this up is we live at a moment when a lot of large enterprises are reconfiguring basically their office spaces, are rethinking what they need and don't need. So I know that there's a lot of stuff out there, and it sounds like there may be some landmines people could easily step on. You know, there's a lot of old, and we could spend a long time talking about those. But the overarching challenge, I think, that a lot, especially the enterprise spaces, and the ITAD to a certain degree, is this is something they have to do. Legally, they're obligated to do it. It's not really sexy. They don't really want to. They only do it because they're legally obligated to do so. We always think about when we go into the data centers, they're really obligated to do that. So if you're replacing a device with something cool and new, nobody really wants to deal with the one that's going out. So as these companies are dealing with this, they don't want to be experts on this. They don't want to know all the details associated with it. So what they need to do is to partner with somebody that does. So they need to look for a company that can provide them not only with software, but with the knowledge of what those blind spots really are. Like I said, again, they don't want to be good at this. It's really not something that's in their core wheelhouse. It's not something they can define as a differentiator to their customers. So one of those things they need to do is have a higher expectation for the companies that they're engaging with. So those companies can help them understand what those blind spots are, and either execute to close those blind spots, or help them understand how to close those blind spots themselves. Now, Kevin, with that said, this is the IT market, right? And it's filled with IT people who love doing it yourself. A lot of our readers and listeners probably started a long time ago going to Radio Shack and getting a whole bunch of components and putting together their own computer. So they're going to go out there, and they're going to do this on their own. So both you guys are basically telling me that, well, I guess you could kind of do that, but it may not be such a great idea, and you might not really be doing yourself a favor. Actually, it can be. You can execute it yourself. The challenge then becomes, right, you need all the devices, you need all the know -how. So really, if you're going to do it yourself, when you're out there engaging with a company that's going to provide you with the software to execute the process, the expectation is you should be looking for a company that can through how to execute that process. Historically, the software companies in the space will dump software on you and say, go ahead, it's yours. Let me know when I can start billing them. The expectation of those enterprise companies in the IT edge should be, listen, I need more than that. I need software, yes, but I need somebody that's going to help me understand the nuances and help me understand the things I don't know right now. Because like you said so eloquently, there's a lot of blind spots, and only one blind spot can screw you over. So again, we don't want to dissuade people from doing it themselves, but I would make the argument have an expectation of the companies you engage with that help you do it yourself, that they're going to be there to help you with the nuances associated with it. Yeah, I can just add on to that. Why that's important is because as the software was built, a lot of the expertise and know -how in having to comply with data center policies, processes, and procedures in how you perform a process and have transparency throughout the entire workflow from receiving the asset all the way through to disposition the asset, that's all built into how the software and the solution is performed. So as Kevin said, it's not only software, but it's also 20 plus years of data center experience in putting together a process and methodology and workflow that allows not only an enterprise to communicate this to their auditors, but also an ITAD to communicate to their customers who then communicate to their auditors. And then with the ITADs that have auditors themselves, whether it's R2 or e -Stewarts or ISO, et cetera, that they can have that womb to transparency and view throughout their entire workflow exactly what asset, if a drive is associated with a server, where that goes throughout the process and the standards from the data standardization that it's complied with, that's all built into the solution. And what Verity also provides is this analytics dashboard that allows commercial enterprises and ITADs to make educated decisions on what makes sense within their process to spend time on versus not. So, for example, if you have a high failure rate on a specific drive type, hey, maybe it doesn't make sense to continue to try to sanitize that. It may make sense just to shred those instead of putting more time and effort and resources and sanitizing them. That's the kind of process that we've built around the solution. So Kevin, who needs Verity ES? One of the target markets that needs Verity ES is the ITAD space. The software was developed, like we said before, around our services business. And that is very much a we got to get in, we got to get out. That maintains our markets. So with the software, we built in a lot of functionality to improve the overall performance, not only with the speed of the erasure, but the yield that the software can get. That's very critical to the ITAD space. They don't really want to do this. They want to get it done. They want to get going. They want to get the residual value out of it. The other thing that we really built into it was a big wrapper around it to help ITADs with the transparency challenges that they're seeing right now. A lot of companies that they're engaging with are demanding more transparency of the overall process. And so ITADs are being forced to think about developing an overall front to end process that they can then share with the customers from which they're taking the gear and then returning whatever they do, either the residual value or demonstrate that they've taken care of those assets once it's done. So we've built a lot of that functionality into the software, viewing it far more as a business tool than just a, this software erases hard drives, it erases solid state disks. It is really a wrap business tool. So Glenn, you know, having heard all this, I still have sort of the same question for a lot of people. Why can't I just go off and do this on my own? The beauty of Verity ES is it now enables you to do just that. Verity ES is able to you provide with a process that's been vetted in doing this type of service in the data center for over 20 years. So you now have a process that's going to enable you to not only save money because you're going to be able to optimize the amount of drives that you're going to process. It's going to allow you to optimize the number of drives that are successfully going to be sanitized and according to the standard. It's also going to allow you to make more money because if you sanitize more drives faster, you can get more assets qualified and re -marketed and resold out the door. It's going to, from a drive perspective, you're going to have more drives available to you, not only to replace in the assets that you're selling, but also that gives you a spares pool so that you don't have to go out on the open market or to the vendors to buy spare drives in case drives, assets are coming to you that need drives replaced. But the biggest thing is it's having a auditable process and the reporting and all of that information available to you through that transparent workflow. It's going to prevent a data breach, which is the biggest thing that we're trying to do is we need to ensure that person identifiable information is not compromised. It's not accessed from any unauthorized parties. The first step is to do it in the four wells of your facility. So that's why it makes sense to do it yourself. The second part of it is to make sure that software, the and it should be a given, the software actually does what it says it's going to do. It's going to sanitize those drives. It's going to erase the drives to meet a specific data sanitization standard so that you know for certain, and it's audible, it has an audit trail that supports it, that every drive that you sanitize using Veri ES in this process and workflow protects your company and your customer from a data breach, which again, it's going to protect your reputation. It's going to protect not only your company's reputation, but the reputation of your industry as well. Well Glenn and Kevin, thank you for joining me today. This has been very interesting. It's been a very nice introduction to Verity ES. I hope we're going to do more. I know we're going to do more podcasts. We're going to sort of maybe over the coming months break down some of the issues we've opened up, but for now I want to thank you. Where can we learn more about Verity ES? www .verityes .com v -e -r -i -t -y -e -s dot gov. Well again guys, thank you for joining me today and I'm looking forward to the next one. Hey, thanks a lot Doug. I really appreciate it.
Fresh update on "stewart" discussed on WTOP 24 Hour News
"Earlier on a bipartisan vote. WTOP Mitchell Miller has more today on the Hill. The yeas are 335. The nays are 91. The stopgap spending measure from House Speaker Kevin McCarthy passed with the help of Democrats who voted overwhelmingly to support it. It was opposed by 90 GOP lawmakers, but moderate New York Republican Mike Lawler urged members of both parties to support it. For anyone to vote no on this bill, they are voting to shut government the down. The bill doesn't include funding for Ukraine but does include disaster aid and it extends funding for 45 days. The Senate is expected to approve it before a midnight deadline. On Capitol Hill, Mitchell Miller, WTOP News. And Democratic Representative Jamal Bowman has admitted to triggering fire a alarm in a U .S. Capitol building earlier today, forcing the building to evacuate and further delay the vote. In a statement to the Associated Press, a spokesperson for Bowman said the New lawmaker York did not intend to trigger the fire alarm. House Speaker Kevin McCarthy criticized Bowman calling it an embarrassment and also said Bowman should be punished. Now although it could be avoided, how would a government shutdown affect the workers in our region? If the shutdown does happen it would have a huge impact on our region and I fear a potential lasting one. The Metropolitan problem.

That means lots of new laws across the DC area. Here's what you need to know about what's going into effect and where. The time that Marylanders will have to wait to get their criminal expunged records will be roughly cut in half. Those with misdemeanors on their records only have to wait five years instead of 10 to file to have them expunged. And those with felonies will only have to wait seven years instead of 15. Those convicted of marijuana possession can file to have those cases expunged as soon as they complete their sentence. Starting on Sunday, DC retailers can no longer refuse to accept cash.

Maryland's Gun Safety Act still includes a number of restrictions on on where gun owners can wear or carry their legal firearms. For example, the bill that takes effect Sunday the law. Exceptions are barred from government buildings, hospitals, schools, and public transit, but a preliminary injunction by a US District Court judge means the carrying or wearing of firearms in bars, restaurants, and on private property is allowed.

A highlight from Ryan Girdusky
"Welcome to the Eric Metaxas Show. We'll get you from point A to point B. But if you're looking for point C, well, buddy, you're on your own. But if you wait right here, in just about two minutes, the bus to point C will be coming right by. And now here's your Ralph Kramdinger, the president of the airways, Eric Metaxas. Hey there, folks, welcome to the program. We have two exciting guests coming up and three really dull guests. But we're not gonna play the dull guests. We're only gonna play the exciting guests today. Yeah. Right? Absolutely. Right? Yeah. Right. That's right. No, but actually the first one is Ryan Gerdusky, and he really has been heroic in explicating the lunacy of the woke universe. So we're gonna be talking to Ryan, I believe right after this segment. Yeah. And he's coming in studio in person, which is always fun. That's what I hear. Yeah. He'll be right here in this studio. Now, Chris, I gotta tell you, I keep wanting to talk about like my favorite films. Yeah. And my viewing habits. I mean, it's the end of the summer. You probably got to get some summer viewing in. I don't believe in summer viewing, but I watch all my films indoors exclusively. But I recently, I think I mentioned this yesterday, I knew this would happen eventually. I knew TV would fundamentally change and that at some point the world of TV and internet would like mush together so that there's no, right? And so I think we're finally there. So I can now turn on the TV and I can search for like Hitchcock movies and I can find Hitchcock movies, right? And it's kind of a cool thing because there are so many great films that I've missed over the years or films that I've seen I wanna see again, right? But the other day, Suzanne and I were looking around for what to watch. And I thought, holy cow, it's the 39 steps. This was the 1935 film that Alfred Hitchcock did. Now that's the year he also made The Man Who Knew Too Much, which was remade 20 years later with like Doris Day and Jimmy Stewart, whatever. But in the 30s, I mean, it's hard to believe that Hitchcock was operating in the mid 30s and that the films are obviously Hitchcock films, right? Like when you watch it, you just go, this is Hitchcock film. It's got a MacGuffin, it's just classic. But we watched the 39 steps and it was so good. This is the 1935 version. At least I thought it was so good for many reasons. But one of the things that made it great, there's a scene. I could just watch the scene over and over. It's where the hero played by Robert Donat, he's wandering through the Scottish countryside and he's on the lam. This is classic Hitchcock, right? Like he's running from the law because they believe he's a murderer. He's not a murderer, of course. But they believe he's a murderer. And so he's running from the law and he comes to the home, it's described as a Scottish crafter. So this is this really kind of bitter, like harshly religious guy who lives in this place near the Loch, near, I can't remember the town. In the Highlands. In the Highlands of Scotland.
A highlight from TBGP #408 Starfield Sales, Baldurs Gate 3 console, Mortal Kombat 1 JCVD, Alan Wake 2, Switch 2
"What's up, everybody? This is Carrick with ACG and I'm here with Citizen Sleeve. Longtime member. Very long time member. Five years, six years ago. Yeah. Oh, geez. Remember, Silver fell ill. Johnny fell ill and Abzi is on a work trip. So it's just him and I keeping the fires burning. Reg is making those games and Reg is making games. Yeah, it's like it's so weird, too, because sometimes we'll get six or seven who want to come on and I pare it down. And then this morning I woke up and I was like, I think pinging people and they're like, Johnny's sick. Silver's out. I'm like, oh, because Abzi told me he was out a couple days ago. Like, what am I going to do? I was going to do it by myself, but I wanted to get sleeve on here if he was able to, because he comes on occasionally. We talk about games and movies and he's a big Mortal Kombat fan. And now we know that Mortal Kombat is going to have Jean -Claude Van Damme. We're going to talk about that full circle. So I'm actually excited about that because it is full circle. Like, it's legitimately going all the way back around to the first time. The old style games from them, man. Finding that first one in the arcade was so crazy. Oh, dude. Every time I've seen like Source Street Fighter two for the first time, I remember seeing MK for the first time and then Killer Instinct for the first time. And that loud ass cabinet you could hear across the room that all of them fucking. Yeah. Oh yeah. You know, I always forget the sound of an arcade. The sound of an arcade is crazy. When you go in and you like all of the games merging together, it's just like show you. You almost need to acclimatize now when you go in. Like I've been in a few because we've got a town near us, which has got a ton of arcade. So I go in. Yeah. It's like John change. Oh my God. Overwhelming. And then you kind of click into it. You're like, oh, I remember we would be at the fair and we would just you would track down. You would be able to track down the arcade pure by sound. You know, there'd be like at our fair, there were like animal exhibits. There was zoo exhibits. There was all kinds of crazy stuff. People paint in your face. You know, you can get pictures, you could get all this and you would just hear very far away. Okay. It is 20 meters that way. Yeah. You'd hear somebody or whatever he says when he's doing somebody's doing a kick. And I was like, OK, we know we know where the arcade is. And then you would go. And I still remember the first time it went from 25 cents to 50 cents. And I was like, oh, no, half the games because we would spend almost all of our money. Like, we would just go there, nothing to eat, dry, desiccated husks of gamers to wet in in there, just playing. Love that shit, scribbled away, hunched over. Yep. If you guys get a chance, tweet out that we're doing this. Hopefully the alert went out, but it looks like it went out with the wrong thumbnail. But that's life. I don't even think I put the numbers on the thumbnail. So a lot of people won't know that. But I appreciate you guys spreading the word of this word. A million. We're almost at one million one hundred thousand subscribers. So thank you to all of the new subscribers as well. I know a lot of people don't check out the podcast as much as the reviews, but if you do, thank you for showing up. Definitely appreciate it. Let's just break into Starfield real quick. So Starfield, it released a couple of days ago, then, you know, released early access, then it released final to people to actually play, which is what you're doing now. And they said over five million or six million people were playing it. You know, you don't know the sales. I think six and one million concurrence is what feels tweeted out. Yeah, there was one million concurrent and that was early access. Yeah, dude, like, regardless if you like it or hate it, it's obvious. I mean, even if you just look at that, it's a success of some kind, especially with it being exclusive to them. Yeah, it was pretty interesting to see something that I noticed this morning, too. So I've continued to play it after beating it twice, the third time, actually. But for the review and I saw a lot of people sort of changing their ideas on the reviews, which was weird. There was a lot of even the people who were high, low, what have you. There was a lot of people were like, oh, I've continued to play it now. I like it more or whatever. I'm like, I should do a review then. I don't quite get it. I saw a couple of people say, no, now it's my game of the year. And I'm like, what now? I don't know if it's my game of the year. I'm not. I don't want to get in that conversation. That's a dumb conversation to have right now, but it was an odd process. What do you think about the first couple hours, though? You yourself. Okay, so I got it for early access. I paid the extra. I was off for a few days. I was not aware of that. I apologize. Okay. Yeah, yeah, yeah. Early access. But I haven't played a ton because you know me and I did what I always do. I made a character played three hours. I didn't like that character because I didn't like the traits I've chosen. So I started again. I started again. I did see that. I'm okay now. So I mean, about eight hours in, so not loads, but the opening is tedious as all fuck. Yeah, I think luckily short. Yeah. I mean, it's only I mean, I've rushed through it without paying attention. It was only 90 minutes until I was making a character. There you go. That's not it's not long or anything, but it's just like Bethesda have always struggled to have an open into a game that creates the sense of kind of open world that you're about to enter into. I think Fallout does it best because you have that moment when the door opens normally. Yeah. But like growing up as a baby in Fallout three and having a birthday party. I know the idea is to establish the world and you're this kid growing up in a vault, blah, blah, blah. I don't need an hour of it. Yeah, I don't need it. And then I like Oblivion, the dungeon even Patrick Stewart's King for the first time. That's really tedious. And all I ever did in the end with those games was I would get through that as quickly as possible, make a save just before I created the character and never, ever do it again ever. Yeah, right. But this one, I think, is the worst it's been for a long time. There's no moment of do you get in the ship and you fly off? And even that's a bit trite in terms of like, here's a chance for folks to get some resources. You're not going to use for however long following. Yeah, it's it's definitely slow. Thanks for all the chats and super chats, folks. It helps the channel. I'll read them in a bit. I would say that when you look at this game, it definitely is like I can get through it, but it doesn't have it doesn't solidify me in the world, even though those others I didn't like as much. They did. And they were like, so you do it once or solidify to understand. I didn't feel that way with this. And even though I've done and plus now three times, I still don't I'm still like I even come up with a couple ideas on my own. I'm like, I could have I'm not saying I could have done it better, but I would have loved to have seen some of the other ideas that these guys had had for a starting.

A highlight from 1233. Bitcoin ETF Odds Increase to 75% Coinbase Lawsuit Over!
"All right, so let's get into the ETF probability case today. I think you guys are going to like this one. We'll break down some things around, of course, the win against the SEC from Grayscale, just off the heels there, and then also what this might mean for the rest of the ETF squad out there that is out there trying to get this done. We'll break all that down for you guys. It's going to be a good one. My name is Paul Baron. Welcome back in to Tech Path. Let's get into it today. Before we start, I want to thank our sponsor, and that is iTrust Capital. If you guys are looking at long -term holding, this is one of the best places to do it. You can go into Bitcoin, ETH, also take a look at even precious metals over there. So there's a lot you can do with a crypto IRA by just going to the iTrust Capital website. Click the link down below. Make sure and use our link. It will give you a chance to get a $100 funding reward. So if you can do that, it helps the channel out. And hopefully you guys can look at a crypto IRA. Let's get into a couple of news topics here. I want to go to the first story. Just in, US GDP data is announced. Here's some of the details and also the reaction, I guess, from Bitcoin itself. Second quarter of the year, US gross domestic product, basically this is the growth of the country. Data was announced today, and of course that came in at 2 .1%. We thought we were going to see a 2 .4. So this was a little bit of a adjustment down. And I think this is one of those macro headwinds that continues to pace here in the United States. The real question is, are we going to continue to see more push from places and things like CRE, etc. Obviously a longer cycle around interest rates, higher interest rates. All that is still playing into the macro picture. The ETFs will be the real question is to see whether or not we actually get market movement if and when an ETF, which I think it's when an ETF gets launched. But US GDP data is defined as a measure of total value of goods and services produced by the U .S. over a time period. Most important indicators of companies economic performance and prosperity. Everybody looks at GDP growth. We've shown this many times of not only us, but also China. And then you can even compare this to BRICS nations. Higher than expected data is to interpret as good for the U .S. dollar, while a lower than expected data is interpreting bad for the U .S. dollar. If you're following the Dixie, the DXY, you probably have already started to see that fall off here, obviously in wake of what we're seeing here around GDP. Other things that are going on is interesting. This is Ripple's chief legal officer saying that the SEC is getting battered in the court. Of course, this is just continuing to see loss after loss for the SEC. I'm still on the fence as to whether or not, and this was Stewart Aldarati who was the XRP attorney, SEC is getting battered in court. It's our case has been proven wrong since called it hypocritical, lacking faithful allegiance to the law, fine for discovery abuses, et cetera. They're doing a lot of things that are not right and they are getting slammed in the courts. This is, of course, I think showing a very bad look for the SEC. It's something we've talked about here on the show quite a bit. But the real question is whether or not this is going to really cause the SEC to change their ways. And that is the question I think everybody's asking, because if they do change their ways and they come to an agreement with something, whether it's with BlackRock or others, to launch an ETF, maybe we are ending the cycle of this notion that the SEC is really against the crypto curious and the crypto crowd. But there's more news behind that. I want to go over to a first clip. And this one, of course, is John Deaton talking about why and how they've been losing. Listen in. Arbitrary and capricious. It is a very high standard. They only have to basically reasonably explain why they made the decision that they made. Even if the appellate judges disagree with the decision of the SEC. Even if they think the SEC was using poor judgment in its decision, as long as the decision is one that can be reasonably explained in a coherent manner, then the SEC wins. And that's the real question mark right now with the SEC is why were they not able to do that? I mean, this is a litigation powerhouse, or you would think, why were they not able to be able to defend that out within the grayscale case? Is there something else happening? This is a continued question that I think a lot of people are asking. John Deaton also talked a little bit more about the appeal process and what that might look like. Listen into what he had to say. I think the appeal was never really on the table because, you know, in order for this to really be appealed, the SEC, Gary Gensler, would have to go to the Solicitor General of the United States and say, this is what the federal government should get really worked up about over the next 18 months. The worst case scenario for the Biden administration is that this ends up in front of the Supreme Court, the entire administrative state, not just the SEC, but the EPA and pretty much every other administration that have regulations works underneath this umbrella of Chevron deference, which is an old Supreme Court case, which basically says, you know, administrators can make rules and then enforce those rules. Do you want to die on this hill? And any Solicitor General that reads that opinion and they look at the other decisions every single time the SEC is in court, they get their ass kicked in crypto. That's a fact. They just lose. They just lose. Right. All right. So this goes back to the whole point is, is there another agenda here? Is there something else that's causing - why would you do this? Why would you as an SEC or even as a corporate strategist, there are some times where you intentionally go into a battle knowing that you're going to lose for the effect of another issue that may play out. And that's the real question mark here. I want to play a clip by Grayscale and their chief legal officer about the response to their win. This also kind of starts to set up some questions. Listen in. Can I just ask you straight up, do you see this as an approval? So yesterday is a big win, but it does not mean that GBTC will become an ETF today. It's important to note there is still a 45 day process where the commission has time to review the decision and decide if they want to appeal. But then going back to the SEC where they can really have three decisions they can make. Approve GBTC as an ETF, which obviously we believe is a decision they should make with other spot Bitcoin ETFs. They can come up with another reason for denying spot Bitcoin ETFs, although unclear what that really would be given yesterday's outcome. And then thirdly, they could also undo the futures based ETFs. I think that's not the right decision either, because that would really cause even more disruption and harm, potential harm to investors, given that these products are trading out there with AUM and so on. We know about the trade fire giants like BlackRock and Fidelity, their applications to spot Bitcoin ETFs. Does the result yesterday, does it change that timeline and your opinion on that timeline? Because you said you want it all to be given the go ahead in one go because anything else would be unfair. It's difficult to speculate on timelines. I'm really focused on GBTC. Of the other filers, we're the only one with an actual product. Is there any world in which you reach out to the SEC instead of the SEC reaching out to you in the next 45 days? There's prescribed channels for how we engage with any regulator. Everybody knows that process. And so we really do have to first wait and honor this 45 day window and then we can focus on re -engaging with the commission. All right. So a 45 day window here, a lot could happen in those 45 days. So strategically, this could be maybe a win for Grayscale, maybe not. Depends if BlackRock actually gets an approval. And we'll know something this Friday if we get another push or if we actually get an approval coming in. And I think there's a lot of people that have kind of pointed to the potential here. One thing that was kind of interesting around the Grayscale scenario, this was Ryan Selkis. He says basically Bitcoin exposure boosts 60, 40 portfolios 100 percent of the time. According to Bitwise, 100 percent. In any three year period of the past decade, this is what the SEC is protecting investors from. So basically what they're saying is, in these last three years, we've continued to see investors win. So are they really protecting anyone from a gain, especially around the ETFs? And with this most recent lawsuit win, this could change the dynamics around it because the optics are clearly there. I want to jump over to another clip that is talking about Cathie Wood. And it's very interesting. You have to remember this clip is coming from much earlier. She actually did this well before this lawsuit. Listen to what she had to say about Grayscale.
A highlight from THE HASH: Bitcoin Tumbles 11% This Week; A Payments Giant Dives Deeper Into CBDCs
"Hey there, welcome to Coindesk TV. You're watching The Hash. I'm Zach Stewart. That's Jensen Asse. Over there is Ben Shiller. We are here to get you up to speed on all that's going on in the world of crypto. We're going to start with some red candles Bitcoin tanking right now, presumably on the lack of a decision in the SEC versus Grayscale case, but surely could potentially be about something else. Bitcoin south of $26 ,000 at present. Just thought you should know. All right. Ben has the first story of the day. I'm going to toss it to him. Ben, what do you think? Yeah. I mean, I think it's interesting about Bitcoin there, there were different explanations for that. We can get to that later, I guess. I wanted to pick up on an op -ed that we ran this week by Dan Kuhn, he's a economist here and editor of The Node newsletter. And it's entitled, as you can see, The End of the End of Crypto. And Dan actually points to lots of good news actually for crypto recently, particularly with institutions coming into the market. So, you know, we had BlackRock's application for a Bitcoin ETF, Ripple's partial victory over the SEC with XRP. You could say that the justice being meted out to some of the villains in the industry like SPF is good news, and then particularly the PayPal stablecoin announcement. These are all good kind of signals for crypto and what Dan does in the piece is kind of bring this together and say this could actually be the bottom of the market. And as evidence for that, he points to coverage from the New York Times, which is often very critical of crypto and Bitcoin in particular, where economists, they're a personal finance economist, actually gives advice to young investors about how to get into crypto and to do it safely. And for the New York Times, that's kind of a milestone because it normally has a very kind of negative attitude. And here it is saying that, you know, if you're young, you want to get into crypto, you want to invest in this, this is how to do it safely, which is sort of accepting that crypto exists and that it's here to stay. The point of the piece is to really say, well, you know, the kind of down markets and other times of kind of production like we're seeing at the moment, there are lots of people out there in the mainstream press who kind of say, oh, this is the end of Bitcoin, the end of crypto, but we're not really seeing that this time. Even the New York Times is kind of saying it's here to stay, here's how to invest in it safely. So that's what the piece is about. And it's kind of a milestone in the conversation around crypto as much as the actual movements of crypto. I just want to say that Dan Coon clearly jinxed it because he goes out here. He's like, mission accomplished. And then Bitcoin falls off a cliff. Way to go, Dan Coon. Way to go. I think he was a little bit premature of him to publish that piece. And I think investors everywhere should be mad that he has tanked the price subsequently. Let's all blame our Dan Coon for everything. This is the Dan Coon dump. There was once the consensus pump, but this is indeed the Dan Coon dump. Oh, poor Dan. I'm sticking to it. Don't be mean to Dan. No, we love Dan. Dan's the best. We love Dan. We do love Dan. Here on the hash, we call it, well, we don't call this chart the road to boring, but we call this the road to boring, right? We have like the BlackRock ETF. We have Larry Fink's comments. I think we learned recently that Donald Trump has almost three million dollars of crypto sitting in a wallet. And I just think the fact that these people, these organizations have been so outwardly skeptical about crypto, various parts of the crypto industry, and now have kind of changed their tune are good and indicates a definite road to boring. I think that paired with like PayPal's news, we're going to talk about MasterCard later. These like really trusted names in financial services are still experimenting in crypto, still forming groups to discuss what's happening here. And this is all happening after the FTX implosion, after there was huge contagion in the industry, after bank collapses that were blamed on the industry. Whether there is any merit behind that is, I guess, still to be debated. I think it all backs up Dan's arguments here. Zach? Yeah, it's interesting. I mean, I think if you look at today's chart, I think maybe people were sort of, what's the saying? Like buy the rumors, sell the news, right? Maybe they're buying the rumor that we get some clarity on Bitcoin spot ETF approval today that didn't pan out, and now we're seeing significant market reaction. So that, I mean, honestly could be maybe the bigger factor at play for some more savvy Wall Street investors in the space who are saying, hey, you know, there's been a lot of speculation that this Graysdale decision would unleash a whole flood of Bitcoin spot ETFs into the market and didn't see that today. Therefore, market is acting a bit pessimistically. So I would, you know, rather than Dan Kuhn putting these things down on paper and that turning the tide, I think maybe again, like we can talk about some of those bigger picture things that are happening specifically around the spot ETF, which I think recently you know, some weeks ago when BlackRock came out and said that they were behind this thing that caused significant price action on the positive following that announcement. Now we're seeing a bit of price action on the negative because a conclusion to that saga has yet to arrive. But you know, I think Dan is, he's been around for a while, right? And he's wise to point out in this piece that as with many things, you know, sentiment rises and falls and there will likely be, you know, again, that cycle that we've seen play out time and time again in the crypto markets where things go up only to come down. And that sort of is the story of crypto when you look at it. I mean, I think he's talking more about the kind of long term here. And as you say, he's been around for a while and you know, we might have these kind of short term movements in the market and the market is down generally, but it does seem like a different type of conversation around crypto now than at previous points in different cycles. For sure. For sure. All right. Let's move from Spot Bitcoin ETFs to Ether futures ETFs. Bloomberg says that we are poised to get a U .S. approval according to sources. Several firms have applied to list these ETFs, which would hold derivatives contracts tied to Ether rather than either itself. And approval from the SEC, according to Bloomberg, is imminent. We must mention that Bitcoin futures ETFs have already been approved. Zach, what do you think? I mean, why not? Right. I'm not seeing this like. Yeah, I don't know. This doesn't seem especially, you know, momentous to me. Right. We have, you know, Bitcoin futures ETFs. They're a bit more complicated than a Spot ETF product. And that's why I think people are very excited about a Spot ETF product hitting the market. But it would make a lot of sense that ETH would also have a product like this. It sort of, I guess, further ensconces the sort of argument that ETH is also a commodity despite Gary Gensler's suggestions that it may not be right. Gary Gensler famously has said, everything but Bitcoin looks like a security knee when pressed under testimony in Congress to specify whether that meant ETH was a security. He kind of famously demurred. So the fact that this seems likely to happen in the eyes of these analysts indicates that maybe the belief that ETH is also adequately decentralized to the point where it looks more like a commodity than a security is positive and is a nice kind of tailwind to that argument that ETH should be treated as such. So maybe that is the interesting bit in this little nugget, because that is still kind of a simmering debate. But I don't know. I think this is maybe to be expected, but I'll toss it to Ben for his thoughts. Yeah, I would completely agree with that. And I think it kind of adds to the idea that Bitcoin and Ethereum are different categories of assets from the rest of the market. And if this turns out to be true, as these analysts are saying, then that kind of idea, as you say, becomes ensconced and could have kind of widespread ramifications for crypto going forward if there's going to be kind of two categories of assets out there, you know, those commodity items like Bitcoin and Ethereum much more sort of tradable in vehicles like this. Yeah, I think you guys are right. I'm just going to point to this tweet ETF analyst, Eric Balchunas, who of course works at Bloomberg. He tweeted, this is not surprising to us. We'd said that they would approve ETH futures early on in the race. Nice to be validated. Now what does it mean for Spot? He said hard to say beyond. It shows that their views, policy and tolerance can change. I think this probably comes back to like our first story, right? Views are changing. Maybe we're taking small steps forward. It may not feel like a big deal to us, but a futures approval for Ether ETF is like another step in that road to boring. And I must note, despite the market downturn last night on this news, Ether popped up, I think just over 10 percent. So a little a little recovery there for Ether on the news. All right. I hope they clip that and put it somewhere. Well, the Ethereum Maxis will love it. The Bitcoin Maxis will absolutely hate it. It'll be used by both camps to prove their deep suspicions of Coindesk .com.
A highlight from Lying about Racism
"Dennis Prager here. Thanks for listening to the daily Dennis Prager podcast to hear the entire three hours of my radio show Commercial free every single day become a member of Prager topia You'll also get access to 15 years worth of archives as well as the daily show prep subscribe at Prager topia calm you Well hello everybody and welcome to the nearly mid -august edition of the Dennis Prager show I Have to say that in Southern, California We have certainly been overwhelmingly spared any terrible heat this this summer It's been as pleasant as one can imagine. I actually ate outdoors last night The state that is most adamant about climate change Doesn't seem to be experiencing it at least that much this year They are skiing apparently At Big Bear, is that correct? Have you heard about that? But they are till very recently it's amazing That's how much snow fell and how the temperatures have not melted it Professor fired for faking data This is from the New York Post Professor fired for faking data to prove lynching makes whites want longer sentences for blacks six studies retracted Florida State University Criminology professor Eric Stewart was fired for allegedly falsifying data in his research I won't understand something who caught him Florida State the university doesn't give a damn. Is it because of the Santas a Student out at him. Yeah, really Florida State University criminology professor Eric Stewart Was a guru of the claim that systematic no systemic racism infests America's police and American society Let Me just go off on a tangent here. I've been mentioning to you that I'm reading this 600 -page book on the Russian Civil War that followed the Russian Revolution the Bolshevik Revolution and What you see what of course I've known this my whole life, but it of course reading it you're reliving it if you substitute a for Bourgeoisie white You have almost an identical Replay of the Bolshevik Revolution taking place in the United States and I'll explain why this is important What the Communists or Bolsheviks as they were originally known in Russia did Was declare all land owners all property owners all bourgeoisie middle class They are all guilty Just as the left in the United States, which is a communist wannabe declares all whites racist There is no difference but morally or intellectually Between what the communists did in their language With their language and what the left does with its language in America all The they are the left is the opposite of Viktor Frankl's belief that there are only two races the decent and the indecent The left is not to divide the world Morally it divides it either by class or by race or by power and That's why the weak are always right and the strong are always wrong that is the reason the left is pro -palestinian because Israel is stronger and Because they identify it as white even though half the country is not white There That's why I concluded a number of years ago It is wrong to say the left's moral compass is broken and I mean this what I'm about to say Literally, there is no moral compass In order for one to have a moral compass one must want to ask the question What is right and what is wrong, but they don't they ask who is Saying something not is he right In order for a compass to work you need to be seeking direction geographic direction Where is north where a south where as east where as west if you ask that question the compass can help you If you ask what is right and what is wrong? Then a moral guideline can help you But if you do not ask the question if you don't care where north south east and west are Then you don't have a moral compass It's quite simple.
A highlight from Hugh talks "Filthy Rich Politicians" with Matt Lewis
"Welcome America back using a song from the boss because it's quoted in this brand new book. Matt Lewis, filthy rich politicians. Matt Lewis joins us now. Good morning, Matt. How are you? Hey Hugh, I'm doing amazing. Good to see you. Good to see you. It's been a long time. First time I met Matt was in 2008 at the Texas Republican State Convention. I don't know if you remember back that far, Matt, but you're that old. I do, you took us out to dinner and paid. I remember that really well. All right, well, Matt, this is a fine book. Congratulations. I want to begin though. Thank you very much. And Hugh, I was a young staffer at townhall .com at the time. And that's why you paid. your I appreciate mentorship of young conservatives. I try, I try. And this is a very good book. We agree on about 75%. We disagree on some and we'll get to that. But I want to start with, you know, you wrote the best article or book on grifting by PACs, by super PACs. And you know, one of the things Jack Smith is investigating is illegal fundraising by the Donald Trump stay in office effort. Do you find it unusual that the first person to get prosecuted for that is the former president? Oh, I think it's, you know, I think it's one of those things where the nail that stands up gets hammered down. What's the old proverb about that? You know, I think it's a combination of factors, but Donald Trump has put himself in the line of fire, so to speak, legally. So not - I'm just so disturbed by that because based on your first book, I don't think I've ever received an honest fundraising appeal. I mean, you, especially the ones that came up during the Tea Party movement, didn't you write that original story on the Tea Party movement with just a giant grift? Yeah, no, I wrote, so I wrote an op -ed for the Wall Street Journal about this. And part of it ended up also being in my book as well, my old book, Too Dump to Fail. But yeah, this was a real problem. In fact, there were candidates running, I'm sorry, candidates who weren't even running for office, had no plans to run for office, and someone would start a super PAC like Draft Condi Rice, and somebody would raise millions of dollars, and most of it would go in their own pocket. I it's think scam PACs was the term - That's your term, scam PACs. And I appreciate that, and I tell everyone about it all the time. Never give a dollar to a PAC, never. It's lining the pockets of a crooked person. So Matt, let's get to filthy rich politicians. First of all, I did not know you grew up in Maryland. I did not know you had moved to West Virginia. So are you gonna support Jim Justice or Joe Manchin in the Senate race, Matt Lewis? What do you live with? I'm for Jim Justice mainly because he has this amazing bulldog named Baby Dog. And I literally live in a state when during the COVID pandemic, in order to get West Virginians vaccinated, which by the way, Jim Justice was a leading governor early on pushing vaccinations, in order to get West Virginians vaccinated, we had a lottery where Baby Dog would pick the winner and you could win a gun or a truck. And so based on that alone, Jim Justice has earned my vote. Well, Baby Dog has been on this show. And Baby Dog, I don't know how old Baby Dog is, or if it's like the Georgia Bulldog and it's like Baby Dog 4, but Baby Dog is a heck of a campaign operator. Let's start with a name of a book I've never seen before. Dig Your Well Before You're Thirsty. This is a big book in your life. I wrote an advice book once called In But Not Of. Is this book still, you're the one you recommend, Dig Your Well Before You're Thirsty. Does it still work? It's been decades, I assume, since you read it. Absolutely. So it's by a guy named Harvey McKay. And he was, believe it or not, in the envelope business, as I recall. I think he had another book called Pushing the Envelope. He had another book called How to Swim with the Sharks and Not Get Eaten. And he literally wrote this book, it's called Dig Your Well Before You're Thirsty, the only networking book you'll ever need. And me coming from a very rural background, the son of a prison guard, my dad was a correctional officer in Hagerstown, Maryland for 30 years. I honestly had no idea the concept of networking. I mean, even the concept of like, let's make friends with people and when you have a book that comes out, maybe you email them and they'll have you on the radio show. Like the way that the world works for 99 % of successful people, I literally had no concept of that. No one ever taught me, no one ever taught me like, literally set me down and had a conversation with me about it and I also never observed it in practice. And so at the age of 25 or 26, I read this book and it actually changed my life. And it still works? You think it would still work today? Absolutely. Oh, absolutely. I mean, because this is based on relationships. Remember in Jerry Maguire, his mentor, is it Dickey, whatever, says to you, the key to this business is personal relationships. You can't sell anybody if you don't love everybody. Like that will work forever. It doesn't matter if there's technology or no technology. And by the way, this is not a manipulative thing. That's the thing I loved about this book is that Harvey McKay was not advising, let's manipulate people. It was about building relationships and friendships with people that are reciprocal and mutually beneficial and I'm a fan. Yeah, there are three kinds of friendship according to Aristotle. The first, the friendship of utility. There's nothing wrong with it. It doesn't bring pleasure. The second kind of friendship or wisdom, the third kind of friendship, but it is necessary. So I'm glad to plug that book. Now on money, your general theory is Tug McGraw quote. I like it, I love it, I want more of it. I am with you too, but the best way to do that is to work three jobs for 50 years. You're not gonna get rich quick in America. You have to work three jobs for 50 years and you'll be comfortable. You have got nothing against money. I want to be clear at the beginning of that. You're not an anti -capitalist. That's exactly right and I tried to go out of my way to really stress that. My wife is a Republican political fundraiser for conservative candidates and I'm somebody who's here hawking a book desperately, trying to get people to go to Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Books -A -Million, wherever fine books are sold and buy filthy rich politicians. So I am a capitalist, I am a entrepreneurial, I love America and I want to become filthy rich. But I also, I will say, Hugh, I don't think money's the root of all evil. I do think the love of money is the root of all evil. So obviously we have to keep things in perspective and not become greedy. And honestly, I think that's the problem with our politicians is that a lot of them, they're disordered. Their priority is not we the people, it's actually cashing in. That to me is the problem. And you make a good argument that a number of people are driven by that. Let's start with our common area of most agreement. I believe with you and you make a good case, stock trading, active stock trading by members of Congress should be illegal. You make that argument at length, Nancy Pelosi is exhibit number one, but there are a lot of offenders. Why do you think that? I agree with you, I can parrot your argument, but you make your argument. Why should stock trading be illegal by members of Congress? Well, first let me say, I don't wanna take credit for this development, but just today, this morning, the Wall Street Journal is reporting that Senators Josh Hawley and Kirsten Gillibrand are about to propose a law that would do exactly what I'm calling for, which is banning members of Congress and their families from betting on stock market. And the reason for this, Hugh, is a couple reasons. Number one, it really looks like several prominent members of Congress are engaging in insider trading. In other words, and I can go chapter and verse on this if you want, but we don't have to get too in the weeds, but very clearly, if you look in the book, it looks like members, prominent members of Congress are using inside information that they have from their jobs in Congress to make money to profit on the stock market. And also, I think even more disturbing, during times of crisis or great change, they're using their information to mitigate the losses, to dump stock before something bad happens. They have information you and I as citizens do not have. So I think whether they're really, whether they're engaging in insider trading or whether it just looks like it, either way, it is eroding trust in liberal democracy, in our institutions, and in our lawmakers. Yeah, if we go back to the market crisis of 2008, my dear friend, John Campbell, one of the most ethical men I know, a car dealer, by the way, who came to Congress with a lot of money told me, because Matt has some harsh words for car dealers where I disagree with him, but we'll come back to that, but John is very, very ethical. I've gone to church with him forever. I know him very, very well, and he's a good car dealer and an honest man. He's out of the business now. But he told me about a briefing he got during the financial crisis. He didn't trade stocks. He would never do that. But if you had been in that briefing, you would have dumped every financial stock, and apparently some people did. They should go to jail, but that's not technically insider information. Right, so first of all, it hasn't even been illegal for Congress to engage in inside trading until 2012. That's when Congress passed the Stock Act, and now it is illegal for them to do it. However, I guess my argument is, and I go back to Martha Stewart, you know? I mean, what would you do if someone called you up, let's say someone called me up and said, hey, Matt, you know that stock that you've got your entire retirement in right now? They're gonna announce tomorrow that that super drug doesn't really work. So just a heads up. Tomorrow it's gonna come out that that drug that you've invested your entire life savings in is not effective, and it's hurting people, actually. What would I do? You'd kinda be a fool if you didn't dump the stock, right? You'd be an idiot. And so I think just as the normal course of work of a member of Congress, you're going to be privy to information that average members, average citizens do not have. And so the best way, and it's impossible to police this, how do we know for certain whether Senator Richard Burr knew COVID was going to be so bad because he's the chairman of the Intel Committee, or maybe he just reads a lot of newspapers and follows the story more closely than most Americans. It's impossible to sort of parse things like that. So the simplest way to solve this problem is to ban members of Congress from trading in the stock market. You can still own mutual funds. And Matt Lewis and I are gonna continue talking about this, but banning stock trading by Congress and their family, their spouse, not their kids, their spouse is absolutely essential to the integrity of the United States. Don't go anywhere. I'll be right back with Matt Lewis. The book is Filthy Rich Politicians. Matt knows the Luntz Law, which is to say the title of the book seven times in every interview, but we're gonna say it more than that. Filthy Rich Politicians. Stay tuned.
A highlight from Ricky Skaggs (Encore Continued)
"Welcome to The Eric Metaxas Show with your host, Eric Metaxas. Hey, folks. I'm talking to Ricky Skaggs. Seriously, look, he's right here. Ricky, welcome. I'm so happy you could be with us in the studio with your mandolin, with or without your mandolin, but even better with your mandolin. I want to talk to you a little bit about your faith. And you grew up, obviously you said your father would set you up on the pulpit when you were like five. So you grew up very much in the church. I did. Foot washing Baptist, you know, is what we were, free will Baptist. And was it just a beautiful thing to grow up like that, you know, and, you know, preacher would get up and say, has anybody got a word or a testimony? Well, here the testimonies would start, you know. So wait, the Baptist would think that somebody could get a word? That sounds more Pentecostal. Well, it wasn't like a word of prophecy. It was like you got a word to say, or do you have something to say or give your testimony? And so these precious old women of the faith would get up and talk about their son coming to Jesus, you know, and that they'd prayed for him for years and alcoholic and God has delivered him and stuff like that, you know, and just beautiful, beautiful things, you know. And when they prayed, they all prayed together. And boy, you talk about something that will run the chills up your back is to hear, you know, 75 people in a little small wooden church, you know, just praying to God, just going after it. You know, some of the old men up at the altar just going after it, you know, with the Lord and praying, you know, all at the same time, you know, and that's the way I grew up. So you go pray in the middle of this, but, you know, a lot of people talk about, well, I grew up singing in the church, but then they go on to have kind of a secular career that's extra secular. You know, they really move away from those roots. Doesn't sound like you ever did. No, no, sir. You always believed in Jesus. Yeah. You know, there wasn't it wasn't even five minutes when you were, you know, on a crack binge or something. This is the place to confess these things. I realize, you know, I've had experiences with the Lord where, you know, Sharon and I both, you know, when we got married, you know, we both had come from from a divorced background. She didn't have any kids. I did. I had two older children, but we dedicated our lives to the Lord from that moment on when we when we got married. And I had recommitted my faith, you know, to Jesus. And I wasn't baptized when I went to the altar when I was 13 years old. I wasn't baptized after that. And not that baptized baptism saves you. Go back when you went to the altar at 13. So you at age 13. Yeah, you made a profession of faith. But I mean, I get the impression you believe before that, but that for some reason at age 13. Well, I knew that I wasn't saved. I couldn't get to heaven just because of my mom and dad's goodness. You know, God has no grandchildren in heaven. That's right. You know, and so we all come and have our own relationship with Jesus. And I knew I needed that, you know, and I knew that I needed my sins to be forgiven, you know. And but, you know, we got baptized in the Holy Spirit, you know, a few years after after we got married, we knew that there was more. We knew that it was more than just just a Baptist, you know, come to faith that that there was a you know, there was, you know, John the Baptist talked about Jesus would baptize you with water and fire, you know. And and so we always always wondered what that fire was, you know, and that we wanted we wanted, you know, the baptism of the Holy Spirit, you know. And I mean, a lot of people listening don't even know what that is. And I you know, I came to faith around my 25th birthday and I pretty quickly got the whole thing. Yeah. You know, so to me, I was speaking in tongues and believing in the baptism of the Holy Spirit and all of that stuff immediately. But there are a lot of people that they think, well, that's a little odd or that's maybe extra credit Christianity. I'm not into that stuff. Well, it's I say it's the full package, but, you know, Jesus is always the full package. He brings everything with him. You know, he brings the bread and the wine when he comes to dinner. You know, in Revelation, you know, not only is he the wine and is he the bread of life, but he brings it with you with him when you when he comes in to have dinner, you know, to said, if you'll open the door to me, I'll come in and sup, you know. And so he's he's all of that, you know, and we need all of him. You know, we don't just need I don't want to I don't want to have anything hidden from the Lord because you can't you can't hide anything from the Lord. And so, you know, I just I really believe in communion, you know, with the Lord every day, you know. And there's just something about it, you know, that's very, very special. That time just to sit and have have time with the Lord, you know, and just just have communion with him, you know. Well, you I guess, you know, again, when we when we think about country music, it's a very faith friendly world. Obviously, Johnny Cash was a very serious believer in Jesus and God. And one of the things that I hated about the film, the only thing I hated about the film Walk the Line was that it completely left out how he gets pulled out of the hell of drugs and alcohol. It was Jesus. Yes, it was. And it was his wife praying for him and leading him along that and her dad. And, you know, in other words, that's that's the heart of the story, folks. If you want to know how Johnny Cash survived and lived and had a career, it's because of Jesus. And when they leave that out, I think to myself, Hollywood tends to do this. We live in a secular culture that secularizes everything. And you think that's that doesn't make any sense because you can't there is no story without that part of the story. That's right. And of course, you knew him personally, as you said earlier. So you knew this was real. I mean, I heard Billy Graham speak in in Central Park. I think it was 1990. And up on the stage, here comes Johnny Cash. And so I think a lot of people that they forget that a lot of these icons, these American icons love Jesus. And Johnny was one of them. He was. But so many I'm just fascinated by how that runs all through, you know, country music. You can't turn around without bumping into somebody who believes. And there's different, you know, different levels of belief. But I think I told you over the phone the story. I was in the Berlin Zoo in the hippo house in the Berlin Zoo. It's like I'm making this up. And this is about five, four, five years ago. And I'm looking for the hippos, can't find the hippos. And I turn around and there's a guy who thinks he's disguised standing there. But I knew who it was, and it was Chris Kristofferson standing there, this legend of legends or whatever. And anyway, I was honored to meet him. But a few days later, a friend of mine sent me Chris Kristofferson telling his story of being drugged, to use your language, being drugged into a church and having an experience with God that was so profound that he wrote that classic song, Why Me Lord, which George Jones sang about. But I mean, people need to know that a lot of these folks that they think, well, so -and -so's a legend. He knows Jesus. Yeah. Yeah, he did. And my friend Connie Smith took him to church, you know. They had a friendship and she loved his songwriting. And Connie Smith is the one who's married to Marty Stewart.

Attorneys for Oath Keepers founder react to 18-year sentence
"Oath keepers founder Stewart Rhodes has become the 1st January 6th defendant convicted of seditious conspiracy to receive his punishment. A federal judge has sentenced roads to 18 years in prison, the longest sentence given in any of the hundreds of capital riot cases. Prosecutors said roads led a week's long plot to keep Donald Trump in power, which in turn led to the oath keepers attacking the capitol. They argued for a 25 year sentence, saying roads remains a threat to democracy. Roads told the judge, he's a political prisoner whose only crime is opposing those who are destroying the country. The sentence will set the standard as more extremist group members receive their own punishments, former Proud Boys, chief Enrique tarrio and other leaders will be sentenced in months to come.

Now, revivals we even talked about a lot right now. Something big is happening. It's sweeping the nation, city by city, stirring hearts for Jesus. Revival has happened before. Jesus revolution, the new film from the creators of I can only imagine, tells the story of the last great awakening in America. 50 years ago, a Jesus revolution blossomed in Southern California and thousands of lives were changed. The film follows a young Greg Laurie, who's searching for all the right things and all the wrong places until he meets Lonnie frisbee. A charismatic hippie street preacher. Together with pastor chuck Smith, they open the doors of smith's languishing church to an unexpected revival of radical and newfound love, leading to what Time Magazine dubbed Jesus revolution.

All right, so I know we're just coming off Super Bowl weekend and a lot of people are talking football. We don't usually cover sports on this show, but there is a sports adjacent story that I really want all of your feedback because I found this totally fascinating. Aaron Rodgers. He is the quarterback of the Green Bay Packers. He hasn't retired yet? Still in the league, he's 38, 39 years old, somewhere around there. So he's coming up on the end of his career. He's still, if he stays in the league, he's still stands to make a few 100 million. It's over a $100 million less than his contract. Okay. But he's getting. He's getting older. You know, football is a brutal sport. And his relationship with the packers has not been great. And so he's got a crossroads where he can either stay in the league, try to get a trade. He could retire and where he could figure out some kind of bio. He's at a crossroads in his life. And like I said, he's kind of an interesting guy. He's known for being a little bit eccentric in some of his media appearances. He publicly has talked about doing like an ayahuasca retreat where he tried to dabble with DMT and psychedelics to try to just get clarity in his life. He seems like someone who's constantly searching. He looks like a hippie. Yeah, yeah. He really does. And he's very open about his, he's somewhat, you may remember a couple of years ago, he him and rob bell became really good friends. They were palling around together. Rob bell watched the Super Bowl with him. Look a couple years in a row. He's a spiritual searcher, Aaron Rodgers. If nothing else. In addition to being a multi time MVP in the NFL. Well, he was recently on a podcast and he started talking about what his plans are to try to get clarity for this next season of life. And he's going to do a retreat, but it's called a darkness retreat. And it's four days and you go to this kind of retreat place, which he described as like a very small house. And it is absolute darkness. And you are delivered food through a slot in the door, but there's no noise, there is absolute silence, absolute darkness. He said, you know, there is because people had a lot of questions. So there is like a bathroom, you kind of have to feel your way there for some people who do need to wear, I know we talk to those couple weeks ago, like adult diapers in some cases. But the whole point is complete isolation, complete sensory deprivation for the course of a week. Or over the course of four days. I'm sorry, four days. And four nights. And the idea is that when you emerge four days and four nights later, you will have had this really profound experience to get clarity in your life by silencing any stimulation. I thought this was absolutely fascinating and weird. And kind of cool. Like, I know. Sound like a scary movie to me. But I think different personalities would deal with a different ways. But it also made me think about the principle of fasting, which is one that I feel like in the Christian tradition is a way of depriving yourself of something in an effort to kind of get clarity from God. But I also feel like fasting is sort of fallen out of like, I never hear it talked about really, which isn't indicative of anything other than maybe just the circles I run in. That's an anecdotal sort of reference point. But I do feel like there is like Jesus went to the desert for and didn't eat or drink for what, 30 days. Wouldn't it 40? Yeah, 40 days? Yeah. The core of what Aaron Rodgers wants to do in this dark chest retreat is I feel like principled in an idea that we see throughout scripture, I don't know what he believes in terms of God or faith, he didn't mention anything kind of about that being an element. But what do you guys think about this idea of a darkness retreat? I'm kind of just interested in takes around the table on this. Jamie, what's your first thought? Really? Worst nightmare. Solitude trips, silence things. I'm out. It's not fun for me. I don't like it. My husband's the exact opposite, like he's like yearning to go someplace alone for like two days and just like be silent. And I did not like that. There's a reason why solitary confinement and isolation and deprivation of any stimulation is the worst form of criminal punishment. You know what I mean? But that's involuntary, but that's involuntary isolation. This is a period where because he said the doors unlocked. You can walk out whenever you want. But like I said, Jesus himself chose isolation in preparation for his ministry. It can be a form of punishment, but it can be a form of. Some sort of spiritual discipline that people see company out there. He was talking to Satan left and right. You know what I'm saying? What? He was trying to tempt him, and he was just like saying, no, thank you. And all this stuff. So he wasn't company though. He wasn't alone. For me personally, it sounds like miserable. I would never choose it, but I do see that I see value in it. I'm not saying I see no value in it. Now, Aaron Rodgers, he can do whatever he wants. And anyone can do that. But I do see value in getting away shutting out noise. People do that all the time. I'm going off social media. I'm going to go away for all day today and I'm going to spend some time hiking and praying and that kind of is the same thing. And so you do get clarity and open up to hear from God. I don't know what he's opening up to hear from, but I see value in it, but I don't want to go into any darkness retreat for four days. And it interesting though that so many of these people who they have everything, they're incredibly wealthy, successful, and whatever. But there's a spiritual restlessness in them. So many of the only thing of Russell Brand and others that turn to psychedelics and things like this to try and have a spiritual experience. You know, like the more they have, the more they realize it's not fulfilling and they're searching for something that will actually substantively impact their lives and it's interesting to watch, watch this happen. And it's interesting that he's being so open about it. I think it should be celebrated. To be honest, I think people will have different kind of moral ideas about psychedelics and things like that, which I get. And I think are valid concerns. But at the same time, I think we should live in a culture that absolutely celebrates spiritual searching because there is a biblical principle that says seek and you will find. Knock and I will answer. There aren't stipulations to that. God in the Holy Spirit frequently rewards people who genuinely seek after a greater truth, Derek. Something. He's

"Not what you think it is, friend. So it also depends on what the company defines a product designer or UX designer as well in the job description. Right. And so a lot of my industrial designer Friends were like, this is lane. We're the product designers, not you guys. Yeah. So, yeah. What gives you purpose to keep doing the work that you do? So I follow several people on Twitter who are in the disability activism space. And while I don't comment, per se, them sharing their experiences, fuels me to make the web better, the Internet is not going anywhere as far as I know. I would love it if they made it to your utility, but I digress. And so I want everyone to have an equitable experience on the web. I want for where I would like to be able to help that further along, whether it's the passionate about making sure that there's a contrast and the code is right. And whatever. But I want the web to be as equitable as possible because a lot of times when folks don't have access to these things, people's lives were in danger, no one talks about that side of it, but if you have all of a sudden you're saying access to government grants and access to COVID vaccinations can only be achieved by going to a website, how many people are you cutting out that one decision alone, especially if the web is not accessible enough to accommodate everybody, and so following these women and their work in that space really sort of fuels me to make sure that I champion it on my end as best as I can. How do you work to stay your authentic self? Throughout your career. I mean, certainly I think when people hear this interview, they get that you've got like a bubbly personality and working in tech and then working in design and working in tech and news, I would imagine you're encounter a lot of different types of folks. We'll just put it that way. But how have you kind of worked to stay your authentic self? Antoinette told me, too. I think Internet Carol. Oh yeah, I've had her on the show, yeah. Yes, yes, yes, yes. So she used to come hang out at the house whenever she would come in for south by southwest, and we would have these long conversations about the work that she was doing and design equity and she's amazing. And she's also another inspiration. But Antoinette was like, listen, you have to be authentic in your work all the time. You just have to be. And I said, okay, yes, ma'am. I just do what she said. I trust her. And she's an amazing human. So, and I do find that it is helpful because people then know what they're getting from you. And I do tell people in front of them, like this, I remember teasing my poor boss, and I was like, are you sure you want to hire me? Because you are getting this mouth. Along with the higher. So I need you to be okay with that. And he was like, no, no, it's fine. Please, by all means, bring your authentic self to work. And so I appreciate that about my bosses that my company, they're very much supportive of that. And I have not run into a situation because, you know, sometimes they'll say that and they don't mean that, but I have not run into that thus far. Here. I'm very grateful for that. Very grateful for that. Hashtag Antoinette taught me. That could be a series in and of itself. My goodness, I miss her so much. What is the best piece of advice that you would give to somebody that kind of wants to follow in your footsteps? They've heard your story. They want to be like you, they want to be where you're at at that level. What would you tell them? Stay curious. Be curious about everything, how everything works, how people feel about things, be observe it, watch people, watch how things function, you would be surprised what you can learn just by looking at it being and being like, so what was that meant for? We always used to joke that there's these products out there that the designers built them for one way. And then the users use them in a completely different way and you're just like, that's not what that was meant for. But even that is some semblance of feedback. So you know, just observing and being curious and watching and learning, stay, stay learning, be stay curious and stay learning, never stop learning. To that end, where do you see yourself in the next 5 years? What kind of work do you want to be doing? I feel like at the moment, my big thing is I'm planning on having my mom come live with me. So learning more about accessibility in terms of interior design and home design and making sure that everything is set up for her to live comfortably if she chooses to come live with me. So just sort of furthering my experience and accessibility, but just applying it to different things and seeing what that looks like. And then whatever I learned, share it with everybody who asks or didn't ask. Y'all gonna get this accessibility on today. Often. Just to kind of wrap things up here, where can our audience find out more information about you about your work, where can they find that online? I tend to keep a low profile, but I am on LinkedIn, you can find me there. I am on Instagram, but I don't post often. I am a lurker as it were. When those things. Yeah, those are my two spots. What's the Instagram? Design? It's from an old graphic design project that I did for my senior my senior year at university. So let me go design elephants and mangoes. I thought that one of my, it sounded like that one it might be elephants and mangoes. My two favorite things. Awesome. Well, Tiffany Stewart, I want to thank you so much for coming on the show. Thank you for sharing your story about just like, it sounds like you're someone that is just passionately curious about a lot of things. And you got the opportunity to be able to really kind of go into a lot of places with your career. I mean, engineering degree, then doing design and then doing all these other things, like it sounds like you're someone that is always trying to keep on the pulse of what's next.

Thank you so much for tuning in. I'm your host Maurice cherry. Now several of you have written me, I guess, over the past couple of weeks now, asking whether or not we were going to do another Black Panther themed episode. If you remember back in 2018, we did a bonus episode around the design of Black Panther. I think we did it roughly about a week or so after the movie had come out. But that was an episode with myself. Our regime Gilbert, Paul Anthony Webb and Jordan green had a really great conversation about the movie about the design, the music, et cetera. It's one of our best episodes, actually it's one of the episodes that's in the Smithsonian for the national museum of African American history and culture. And so with Black Panther Wakanda forever out, I've already seen it twice now. We are going to release a bonus episode about the design of Black Panther Wakanda forever. We actually just recorded it over the weekend, so I've got to finish doing some production magic on it, but check out our feet later on this week for when the bonus episode dropped. It should be about Thursday or Friday, I think. I think we're gonna drop it like Friday morning, but check out the feed for that, I think you're really gonna enjoy it. Now, of course, if you've heard me talk the last couple of months you've heard me talk about the tenth collective, which is this new talent collective initiative from revision path and from state of black design. And now that we've got the revision path job board as a part of it, it's actually even better for both job seekers as well as companies. So if you're a job seeker and you're looking for work, of course you have the job board there, and you can join the tenth collector for free to be a part of our talent collective that has companies that are looking to hire black designers. And if you're a company that's looking to hire black designers, you can join the collective for a low monthly fee and you get access to all of these great profiles of people that are in the collective and then you can reach out to them to help out with your recruiting efforts. Super, super simple, super, super easy. If you're a black designer and you're looking for work and maybe you've been affected by one of these mass tech layoffs that have happened over the past few months or weeks, you want to be a part of this. It's free to join all you have to do is fill out a really short profile and you're all set. And you'll only get contacted by companies when they are ready to talk to you so it's not some sort of thing where you're going to get spam from myself or from state of black design. They're only going to reach out to you when they want to talk to you. So it's sort of a good resource to just have in your back pocket as you're looking for your next opportunity.

And yeah, that's me very much blurred and just really passionate about accessibility and UX. How so you've been going for you so far? How's 2022? Oh my gosh, 2022 has been a blast and then some. I bought a house. Oh, nice. Right, I am officially now a homeowner, and I am in the process of building out my office. So I went and bought the Ikea cabinet and I attached them to the wall and I'm painting and I'm sanding and breaking out the miter saw. So. Wow. That is my life at the moment. Yeah, I am. That's a huge accomplishment. Congratulations. Thank you. It was a lot. The process was a lot because I think it was right before the interest rates went up. So it was just like, oh my gosh, I have to hustle and get this house for everything just goes to pot. So. Well, I mean, that's such a big accomplishment already for the year. Is there anything else that you still want to try to accomplish before 2023? I have so many, but I think for like the immediate goal for me is to see this Black Panther movie that's coming out. The black Panthers. And then on my professional work and getting my design system up and running to a point where it's doing what it needs to do and folks are able to use it in meaningful way. So yeah, those are my big ones for the end of the year. Okay. Let's tap into a little bit about the work that you do. You mentioned you're a senior UX designer and you're working at Thompson Reuters. Talk to me about that. I think the initially hired me as a contractor to work on one of their products as a regular UX product designer, and then once they heard about my previous work on a design system prior, they were like, oh, we'll just move you over to the design system side. So we can get that sort of up and running, and you can help with the facilitate that process. And I was like, okay, cool. And so I shifted into that particular space design system tends to be more because I think not many people know what design system designers do. It's more of a space where you're looking at applying concepts across the board holistically for several products and several teams in spaces. So my day to today is really thinking about, okay, how do I apply the concept of warning across a design system so that all of the products are consistently representing warning in a way that's meaningful and consistent. So my day to today is that making decisions about what our colors are going to be and how they're going to be expressed and just setting all of that up so that the designers can build their products relatively quickly because all of these decisions are already sort of made for them so they can already just bring those into play and then working closely with the accessibility team, which I'm very excited. The first time I've actually ever had one, usually it's just me doing it by myself, but we do have a dedicated accessibility team at TR, and they're amazing to work with. And we just make sure that the DS is accessible as possible that our products are accessible as possible. So that's my day to day. Tell me more about that accessibility. I'm curious what does that look like at a news organization like Thompson

"Guest today is the owner and founder of bold curiosity. A leadership development consultancy. A woman who is passionate about designing learning solutions that add value and help young people transition to the working environment. A warm welcome to Celeste Stewart, I'm so looking forward to this conversation today and I can't wait to discover the gyms with you. Thanks and good thanks for having me yeah and yeah, we're going to discover James today that I'm happy to share some of my ideas and I'm sure I learned from you as well. So I'm really excited. Let's jump in. So I mean, today's discussion is all about playing big. What does playing big mean to you? Where does the term come from? So let me answer the second question that the term comes from or when I got to know that was from the book playing big by charter Moore and I went to a French give created for opening up my mind and my life to the concept and her take on it based on her book. So for me, it's about connecting very authentically to that thing that you are so deeply passionate about. It's about connecting to the fire that everyone has inside of them. And then it's about making a decision to live to that whatever the fire and the passion is for you. And I want to say it doesn't have to be one thing only. You know, some people have one big calling that they follow for some of us, it could be multiple things throughout your life that they evolved. But for me, it's about having the courage and developing the skills to listen to that voice inside of you. I mean, to follow it with deep passion. And make money along the way because that's also important. Yes. I love what you said. Just around it's having the courage. The courage to kind of unleash that magic within you. Yeah, because I know also when I read the book, there was quite something. It's quite eye opening. I remember chapter around attaching yourself to praise. And where it all comes from and when I read that chapter, it just unlocks so much for me because I was like, why am I so attached to plays? Yeah, it's definitely been the book, I think, is many women should definitely add that. On their bookshelves..

"If I get paid more money every time I see that, or say that, I'm going to be in business. So in regard to the issue with LeBron James on the floor, adult actress, pornographic star, Kendra lost bob Ryan. Do you know who Kendra lush is bob Ryan? No, I do not. He would not admit it. Maybe maybe Goodman does. Kendra lust has said that Isaiah Stewart is a fake tough guy. No, she said that Anthony Davis is a fake tough guy. So she is one of the most popular adult film actresses in the world. She has 7.2 million followers on Instagram and she says that Anthony Davis should have got involved. She says that Anthony Davis is soft. How do you feel about Kendra lust by? I guess she's entitled to her opinion as well. So I can tell you. I don't have any. I have no opinion about her. I'm sorry. I don't know anything about her. I just wanted to get a porn actress. This is pod. I'm sure you did, but I can't Jeff Goodman's dying right now. Bob, you're fine. We're taking you off the hook. I am because I think maybe ten ways worked with her before bob. I don't know. I don't know what she is either, but she may be honest something. She might pay the bills. Well, listen, Anthony Davis is not the toughest student in the world. Isaiah probably would have broken him in a house. And it's probably would have been out for the year. If he had gotten involved in the scalpel. So let's be honest. This is the right move for Anthony Davis. Anytime something breaks out, this is a guy who can get hurt anywhere anyplace in any way. Run the other way. Go ahead, get the hell out of there. And let Dwight Howard get in there and mix it up. Let him have some value for this team. But my guess is the white Howard probably ran in the tunnel on this when this whole thing was going on. Yeah, she said, something like Anthony Davis didn't want any of that smoke or something along those lines. Anyways, hey, look, 7.2 million followers on Instagram. Well, that's a few more that could not have any followers. I got to tell you that speaking of not wanting to get involved in a fracas story, I was sitting on the bench and my junior year at the lines for school. We're playing board in town military institute..

But a lot is the fastest and easiest way to bet on all your favorite sports that align with stuffed with deals of Thanksgiving. Thank you better in line for making this show possible. All right, guys, to me, the big story is, you know, LeBron James. Okay, we saw the video. We saw the incident Isaiah Stewart gets two games, which I can't believe that's all they got. That's beyond me. And LeBron James. Bob, I want to start with you about the altercation, you know, LeBron elbows the guy, didn't look attention. LeBron turned around and said, my bad, but Stuart goes crazy. And all your years of covering this league, how bad was this? Well, let's start with the incident. I mean, let's talk about the background. My first question was what was there something leading up to this? Was there a reason why LeBron James went out of character? He is not known for anything like this ever. Did I know of, okay? Right. He's not known for this. So was there something that started done earlier? And he said, all right, I had enough kid. I'm going to show you who's boss. Don't mess around with the king. Or something. I don't know. Okay, no, but look so that's a B and LeBron. It's nothing that LeBron is known for. Okay. He did it, though. And then it appears and certainly that's what his teammates think and I know in the Davis we saw the soundbite from him afterward said the bond immediately want to say, I'm sorry, okay, let's go. If that's the case, now everything is on Stewart. Yes, he's bleeding. Yes, this was I'm going to pick my words carefully. I've been covering this league directly for 52 years. Since 1969. I have never seen him terrifying person at the moment on the floor. Even including people who have thrown actual punches, you know, which you never got to do. You know, but that was a frightening, terrifying individual a large, powerful young man. Listed at two 50. God knows what he weighs who had a look of just frenzy. They couldn't subdue him. He wouldn't let it go. Wouldn't let it go. What triggered that? That's what I want to know. I don't know. Jeff, I watched him and I liked him in college and by the way, I thought he was and I have no idea he kind of reputation of any kind, Jeff, you would. Bob, I will tell you, he is the nicest kid the most soft spoken kid you will ever meet. He's 20 years old. I've spent an hour with him two years ago at Washington and I could not have been more impressed with Isaiah Stewart as a human being high character. Any anybody you talk to about Isaiah Stewart? Those are the first words that will come to their mouth. This high character, sweet, innocent, almost too nice off the court, but when he gets on the court. He is a man. Like he plays with a motor. That's what's got him into the league. That's what's gonna keep him in the league. His motor and listen, I don't know what it was exactly either, I don't know if it was one of the blood started flowing and he felt it that all of a sudden he lost it. But he lost it..

"Your own podcast. I think you'll get something out of it because somebody's editing. Your podcast right. You will be able to communicate with your editor better because of this content real quick last conversation. It's a lot of fun. Steve's gu-guy so here. It is steve stewart. From podcast editors club and podcast editor academy the conversation. Some of the more technical things about audacity. Imagine one of the big things is that all your tracks are on a single file. Now it's not a stack of miles in a folder. And i would think for editors that's going to be amazing that you can get this raw audacity file to work with. I used to export to wave for example track individually to wave. If i needed to move something don't have to do that anymore. I would say as far as workflow. Audacity is rapidly easier as far as transferring files. I love the whole thing about exporting specific directories has well like if you need a certain type of file i can automatically send it to dropbox just through an expert. Don't have to find the directory or anything it's amazing. Yeah with audacity. There was that. Up file that was separate from the underscore data folder. Which had all the audio on it and you had to use the file. That is kinda like a lunch shortcut. That's gone i loved. It has gone because one of the problems. I've had with a dass. Ity in the past is trying to share an odd acidy project or or client trying to share it with me through dropbox. There's one digit that's off then. I can't open up the project. The should fix that problem. Which is one dot. A u. Three file to share should be lost data. Then the problem is that if you had a way file and you export the way. Obviously it's done. You can't go back and undo anything that's beyond question but the file size of a file in dot a u three file. The project folder or file. It's pretty much the same size. You're not saving space or anything like that. I was kinda hoping there would be. Obviously you can zip things down. But i hate doing that because this is another step. That almost doesn't necessary. That's one of the big arguments against audacity is what destructive. Meaning that when you do make a change it's done you can control z. But you can't make a thousand little changes like you could an audition. That's never been an issue to me. I guess it's one of those work arounds like you're talking about it's like yeah you know it would be nice to have that. It's it's maybe one of the things it's ten percent better for me. I'm curious what are the things that you would change in audacity if you could get the ear of the developer. What would make it better for podcasting. I think what you were mentioning. There is the difference cassidy and all the other dog is. A deputy is a destructive editor..

The entire show is going to be focused on the market. Ready guide. What are the improvements you can make? That will make you more money. Be sure to be here for that. Plus, I'll answer. What are the 10 questions? You should be asking a real estate agent today before you hire one. You know, you may be interviewing two or three folks. By the way, we would ask that were one of those. We appreciate the opportunity of being considered. We've had an excellent run here for 33 years of the Eric Stewart group. We have a really find system. 119 steps from the beginning to the end, including staging and photos and everything you would possibly expect, plus a lot you wouldn't even know about without talking with us. And that process that we've created is why last year we had no listings expire. We Sold every property that we took on. We were able to achieve it because we approached it honestly, not with some empty headed guarantees that mean nothing. I had the privilege of interviewing with the home seller recently, who had hired this guarantee. We don't sell it. We guarantee to buy it when I asked the question when they didn't sell it. Why not? He said, Well, they told me that I didn't qualify. I said, Okay, You know, they got the phone to ring because they announced something That sounds really amazing. But then there are disqualifiers. You talk about a lack of truth in advertising. Let's make it right. Just like our commercials. Have these disclaimers about what the financing rates are actually going to be, because there's truth in advertising in that. You could tell you a little irked by But what ends up happening is you know we end up getting are sold in the other party ends up getting a lot of listings unsold, And so we end up picking up Unfortunately, the broken home sellers who end up coming back to us and going wow, out. I really expected something different and I'm bruised. I'm hurt. What can you do for me? And then we tell them in there like this is too good to be true, But you're doing it. So if you're in that place come back next week Sunday 88 30. I'll give you a layout of how you can interview Several agents before you hire one get the truth. Understand where your improvements can be made. We're in the process of getting these listings ready to go on the market..

"This episode with joel stewart hits in a way that we've had on the podcast but we do it in a very different way and i can't tell you how excited i am for today's podcast joel. Stewart is a very awesome guy. Because he's the united states navy veteran he's founder of the international franchise markets. We talk a little bit about franchising. Which is something we've had previous in the podcast about. He's a now author of the value equation. He's just an amazing individual and also his story of what he had to go through. He had something to happen to him. Healthwise and i'll save it for the episode for it to be impact but there is a story where he pretty much got put in a wheelchair and he had his whole life pulled out from under him and he had to kinda rebuild from that and he had to learn a lot of hard lessons the hard way but those lessons now have made him a stronger individual stronger. Dad in everything about his life is now lying in a way that he's loving where he's headed and as always guys if you want to hear my big takeaway of this episode hang on onto the other side of the episode. I'll be back on the microphone other than that. Let's get started with today's episode of joel. Stewart walking the podcast joel. All thank you breathing. A little bit of backstory. You've got an incredible story of going through a lot of shit. That life is thrown at you. So i want you to open up right away tells a bit by your family. Tell us a little bit a few of those. Maybe struggles that we're going to hear about the day and just tell us who joel stewardess Well jill stewart is a very interesting guy. Let me tell you about him. Yeah sometimes. I think it's the our struggles that really kind of define us in mold us You know we look around and we see the people that don't seem to go through the struggles The really kind of shallow weak people. I actually had a theory about this. And i didn't even mean to go direct certain beginning but i put out this theory awhile ago called the logic of life experiences and that and that is that Everything that we go through and how hard it is for us to go through it it always ties back to our hardest life experience that we'd gone through so far and and that's the measure of it so if you've gone through something really difficult everything in the future difficulties measured against that thing. You've gone through in. Everything is going to be easier in general and you see a lot of people that may not have gone through a lot of difficult things and it seems like everything is horrible. Everything is drama. Everything is like the hardest thing because they don't have any so for them like they're they're measure of what is difficult is very low bar And so by extension. Almost everything is difficult And it's it's it's actually. It's kinda funny because the reality is that it's difficult and then for people that have gone through things that are objectively much more typical. Look like wow. That's that's crazy. I can't believe that you find that difficult so for me in my life i've gone through a fair number pretty difficult things and i. I guess we can start there When i was in the navy Things i started getting like these really Just kind of random symptoms. I started getting fatigue and the wind back to the beginning..
