A highlight from New England's Historic Loss & CJ Stroud Breaks Out
"Hello and welcome to the MMQB NFL podcast. I'm Conroe. That's my dog Ernie upstairs barking at the FedEx guy. Albert Breer's here and I'm going to start in New York because Albert I can't believe that we're still doing this Taylor Swift thing. And now the NFL is doing the Taylor Swift thing. Do you see that they are their subhead on their Twitter pages. The Chiefs are now 2 -0 as Swifties. I did not see that but I am more and more. It's fake. I think so too. I think on Friday like the radio show I did in Boston. They leave me at the like and these guys are really creative and they kind of like took me through their full like tinfoil hat like conspiracy theory. You know like you know what this actually really makes sense. Like because the NFL has forever chased the female demographic and they've struggled to get it. And they know that there's nothing more buzz worthy on that side of the aisle than Taylor Swift. And they were shameless enough to cut like I mean we've seen some of their shameless acts over the years to try and get the female audience. And this wouldn't even rank in like the top 10. You know what I mean like this would just be sort of par for the course that they would do something like this. So I really like I am officially on this Monday morning Connor especially after the 10 million shots that box last night. I'm all the way there. This is all fake. This is all like this is all contrived. This is it. Everyone wins situation. Taylor gets to promote her movie. What else is it? There's one other thing right is a new album coming out. I can't keep track of all of this. I have no idea. OK. So Taylor gets to promote that stuff with a different demographic. Right. Like football different demographics different than hers. The NFL gets to try to take a swing at the female audience. And then Travis Kelsey gets an enormous benefit from this. Travis Kelsey's following has exploded. Nine hundred thousand new followers. This is like an everyone wins situation. And it's all fake. A 14 point 14 whatever place jump in Jersey sales. Like we were taught in school to follow the money and it's right out in front of us. Like it's like you know we're not even it's not even like they're hiding it. And I think I'm only read some of this stuff sometimes, though, and like like over the last week, like actually clicking on some like people dot com links, you know, I've seen some stories she reads. And I always think that the page six type stuff, you know, and I always think it's funny when there's like an insider into somebody's relationship, like who would be the insider into your relationship? Connor, I, you know, when they when they when they when they put sources into your relation and then people's relationships. Yeah, the sources be I mean, it would be like my neighbor or like my mom or my wife's mom. It would be like, yeah, I think I think they're fighting, you know. Yeah. Yeah. I don't have a publicist. I always think that's great. Like is the sources into the like the insiders into the relationship? Like is that person like just coming over and hanging out on a Tuesday or something and that makes them an insider? So Brian Costello, who's awesome, Jets beat writer for the New York Post, and he tweeted the the bio for the NFL's Twitter page, which is the Chiefs two and O's Swifties. And he's totally right. This is the kind of stuff that fuels nutjob conspiracy theorists, not just the ones with the podcast. But the fans who watched that game last night and saw their saw the outcome derailed by an extraordinarily questionable call on Sauce Gardner. And listen, I'm not saying it's good, bad, right, wrong or indifferent. But if you're a Jets fan and you've already seen your entire season railroaded by the NFL's greed and desire to milk whatever they can out of this franchise and you had to do hard knocks. Every single game is on prime time. Your schedule is ridiculous, ridiculously front loaded and impossible at the beginning. You know, I don't know what else you could think right now other than your team is just being actively manipulated by by the league. And listen, I don't believe it. You know, Andy Benoit and I used to fight about the I used to get him going on the NFL's fake thing a while back. We had a lively discussion about that after Peyton Manning's second Super Bowl. But I don't believe it. I'm not one of those people. Well, you're not making them go away. I just noticed I just went to the NFL's Twitter page. It is now the header is three shots of tail left. And like if you look at the bio, I think this is a tailor. I think this is a tailor reference. We had the best day with you today. Maybe is that a reference? I think it has to be right to be clear. I'm not anti Taylor Swift. I think she's a fine musician. Yeah, I think she's a genius. Like, yeah, I think she's a legitimate genius and everything she touches turns to gold. And there's a reason for it. She's obviously incredible. Yeah, I just don't like I want you know what? I think I'm hot, too, because I'm coming off the I wrote about the way those are the lyrics to it. Those are those are lyrics from a Taylor Swift song titled The Best Day. Okay, I think I'm just a little hot coming off the Toy Story broadcast, too. Did you did you catch any of that? I was actually coaching third grade football during the Toy Story. Okay, good. Yeah, I threw that on and I was just like, what are they doing? And I get it. You're trying to get kids to watch football. But how about just allowing kids to watch football or to have kids play football and not to watch like a I mean, the technology was incredible. But it like it looked like a like a like Minecraft, you know, and like I just felt like I watch it with my son for a minute. And I was like, they're trying to just it's like cocoa melon. They're just trying to hypnotize them. So we we bang that thing fast. I mean, I just feel like that's like there are some people at the league office who don't have enough to do. And that's how things like that wind up coming to life. Like like fix, fix the problems. Like we're focused on Taylor Swift and the Toy Story broadcast, like like digital chains so that like chains don't break during the game. Grass fields like like like fix the actual problems with the games. My God. Anyway, twenty three twenty, the Chiefs beat the Jets. The Jets fall to one in three. The Chiefs are three and one. I think my takeaway from this game is the takeaway that everybody had, which was this was a feisty, very feisty Zach Wilson game. I think that Robert Sala, to me, win or lose, just earns so much credit because during the week he knew he was going to get demolished. And he said, you don't throw people away. You just don't throw people away. And I give him so much credit because honestly, this is job on the line stuff. And he stuck with Zach Wilson. He dug in. There was no sample size. And Zach played really well. I was very happy for them. And look, like I think that the biggest problem that Robert Sala had was like, can he continue to sell Zach Wilson to the locker room? Because the premise of that entire team, the construction of that team this year was we're going for it. Right. So there are guys in that locker room like Allen Lazard and Adrian Amos and Randall Cobb, guys that were like that are older vets that are there to chase the ring. And like guys like that aren't going to have patience. They don't care what this means for your franchise in 2025. They care about right now. And the younger guys in the roster are going to be worried about what's going to get them in a position to get paid. So it can be hard to sell a developing quarterback to a locker room. And I'll give Robert Sala credit for standing by Zach Wilson, because if he didn't do that, like it would have been impossible. It would have been impossible for Zach in that locker room. you And, know, it sort of made me think of something I said earlier in the day about how Josh Dobbs should get us to question everything about how we develop quarterbacks, how the NFL develops quarterbacks, how the NFL nurtures quarterbacks. Because, you know, you have this guy in Josh Dobbs who got what, six years to kind of learn away from the bright lights. And then because he was on different teams, because he had different experiences, because he was developed away from game action, because people invested in him, because he had a chance and people had patience with him. And, you know, every single movement of his wasn't, you know, litigated on a public level on a week to week basis. You know, he had a chance to kind of get better in the background. And now you have a guy who's so adaptable that he could be traded a week before the season and start and take maybe the worst roster in the league and have a competitive over the first month of the season. It really like to me, like looking at Josh Dobbs makes you question everything. And so if six years can do that for Josh Dobbs, why are we throwing guys out after two or three years? That's what I don't get about it. It's fair to make an assessment on a guy and say, like, he sucks now. But to say guys never going to be good, just ignore so much history. You know, like Alex Smith is a phenomenal example of it. Right. Like how many times was he given up on in San Francisco? Yeah. Like, oh, he can't play. But no one was looking at the fact that like he had five coordinators his first five years in the league. He had two head coaches. Everything was completely unstable around him. And then Jim Harbaugh gets there in 2011 says, no, I'm sticking with him. And he takes off and then he's in the league for another decade as a starter. You know, like it's just we have so many examples of the of why we shouldn't make definitive and declarative statements about young quarterbacks. And yet we do it over and over and over again. And like I do, I think like the intention of the Jets in the first place was we have to press the pause button with Zach Wilson. We may have wronged him by playing him too fast. Right. And by putting too much on him too early. And so the whole intention on bringing him back this year was to allow him the chance to do the Josh jobs and develop in the background for a year or two. And that got blown up. But just because that plan got blown up like that's not Zach Wilson's fault. That plan got blown up. It's not anybody's fault. So now you're going to just completely throw the kid out. Why? Because Aaron Rodgers got hurt. There's a lot of like really faulty logic that goes into the way that he's been talked about over the last couple of weeks, I think. I agree. I'm not just saying this because I wrote about it, but to not even, you know, I think we're in such a easy Twitter dunk society that when Zach Wilson and Nathaniel Hackett get paired up, everyone's just like, oh, this is going to be terrible. And without looking at any of the history of any of these guys. The AFC championship came with Blake, Blake Bortles. He got Ryan Nassib drafted out of Syracuse. I went to Syracuse. Do you know who was the quarter? The last quarterback drafted before Ryan Nassib, Donovan McNabb, Donovan McNabb. I was going to say I was going to say Troy Nunes. Like I think drafted as a quarterback. I think there was a couple of quarterbacks that turned into tight ends, but in literally broke all the school records with this guy. And then he got Kyle Wharton, I believe, to the doorstep of the playoffs. Yeah. Two MVPs with Aaron Rodgers after he was lost in the woods for a little while. The guy's good at what he does, you know, and we're seeing in Denver now, who knows? Make your own judgments about what happened there. But I think that this thing could work like, OK, yeah. The Jets are one in three, but their schedule softens up a little bit. They played a lot of their best defenses up front. You know, Zach Wilson is going to look bad against the Cowboys, but how many other people are going to look really bad against the Cowboys? Right. And now in the next few games, like they have the Broncos coming up. I mean, Zach Wilson could could legitimately put up 50 points against that team. The Eagles, who are really good defense giants, Jets, Giants before Halloween, which if he can handle the pressure. I think that's coming off a buy, too. So it's coming off a buy. You know what Wink Martindale is going to do. He does it well, but you know what he's going to do. And then the Chargers November six, the Raiders November 12th. You don't play a really good team. You play the Eagles in the bills in the next month and a half. Otherwise, you're good. Well, we're kind of like that's like and that was the whole logic behind this. And I think we talked about this last week. To me, the problem with going away from Zach Wilson, like in the whole in the first place, was a there's no better option out there right now. Right. And B, once you go away from him, you can't go back again. You know, so I think so. I think so. I knew that like it was if we bench him in consecutive years, we can't sell him to the locker room again.

Andrew, how are you? I'm good. How you doing, Jimmy? I'm good. I just realized I didn't put my phone on do not disturb. So I'm going to do that as we speak. And I'm going to let you know that I had a reader last week for my mailbag column on S .I. com, send it an email and said, when is Marchand's next appearance? So here we go. You made someone happy. Thank you that person. You made someone happy by coming on today. Let's start with this. A lot of media news to get to. Have you heard anything from ESPN or do you have any intel about how they feel about the last two weeks? How the staggered Monday Night Football doubleheader has gone? Because I've gotten a lot of emails and tweets about it. I'm sure you have as well. Yeah, I haven't talked to anybody specifically about how they feel about it. I mean, it is an NFL decision. ESPN is not in control of how those games are scheduled. Maybe they have some say, but it's the NFL decision. Yeah, I don't like it. Actually, in our podcast with John, it was my who's down this week. And the reason I just feel like I kind of said this on our part, it's too it's like having two quarterbacks and you have none. Right. And now if you have Joe Montana and Steve Young, there are two awesome games. Maybe that'd be better. But I just find my attention split and I don't know. And even at like halftime, I wouldn't recommend you go to the other game. Like I get what they're trying to do there, but it's not the NCAA tournament. And usually it's in like the second quarter, third quarter. So I personally don't think it really works that well. Now, I think they want to avoid I'm not positive, but I think they want to avoid that 10 30 late window. We used to get the Monday night and you get the, you know, crazy crew, either Chris Berman or Golick and Greenberg, you know, some of those crews back in the day. They probably don't want that late night game where, you know, you're losing that East Coast audience if it gets too late. But I don't know. I don't think this necessarily works. See, I like it. And what are the tweet? What are the tweeters say? Most people seem to not like it. Yeah. And why do you like it? The more the merrier. Give me as much football as possible. If I can watch eight games at one o 'clock on Sunday and four or five games at four o 'clock on Sunday, I can handle two games on Monday night. So, you know, I have two TVs. I put one game on each TV and two is better than one for me. That's just how I feel. Yeah, I've been a little running around these last couple of Mondays when this happened. So I may be a little bit, you know, my opinion skewed a little bit by that. It hasn't just been like I'm just chilling and watching, been running around a little bit. So perhaps that's, you know, maybe I could be swayed. I will say, you know, I don't know. This is a whole separate discussion. I would love to know your take on this, but I always feel like it's a little tough sometimes to criticize people in this podcast when I also have to book this podcast. So I try to be careful. Yeah, I notice you're very soft. That's what you're trying to say. Sometimes. So I'm sure this guy will never come on again, but they gotta do better than Chris Fowler on the secondary game. Just not, it's just not working. Chris is not a great play -by -player. Right. He was a great host, studio host. Can I say one thing? Yeah. He's on tremendous tennis. Like I watch the U .S. Open every single day. I think he's great on tennis. It's football where it's just something feels off. Well, tennis is also slower. And like you look at people who do really well at the slower sports. Like, you know, Jim Nantz is better than Chris Fowler, but Nantz is really his best thing is golf. And I think he's an OK NFL play -by -player. And at the end of his college basketball run, he was definitely, I don't know, OK is probably, you know, he was OK there as well. And I think if you look at Fowler and his history, now he's been doing play -by -play for a while now. And he has gotten better. Like when he first started on the number one crew, I mean, if I were covering it then, that would not, I probably would not have been that kind. Because he has gotten better, but it's not really good enough. And he's the rare case, I think with Herb Street, that Herb Street makes him better. Usually it's the play -by -player who makes the analyst better. And yeah, I think you're right. And I also think, you know, in fairness to Fowler, you know, ESPN put that crew together. They replaced Levy there and they had a year or two under their belt together as a team. And, you know, not the full team, but him and Riddick, Levy and Riddick, and then Jadolowski. And I think they kind of don't, they underestimate chemistry. It takes time to build it up. And so I think that hurts. And he just, he's a college guy too. It's hard just to come into the NFL. I know he, you know, he's talked how hard his schedule is with the U .S. Open. And then, you know, doing a game a couple days later. And then doing a college. And so, you know, that's hard. And so, yeah, he's not a tremendous play -by -player. To me, this is just me, it felt like when ESPN gave him that gig, it was more about ESPN trying to impress the NFL. Like, look, we have our number one college game. Like you had said earlier, the secondary Monday night game for years was, you know, Golic and Greenberg and Chris Berman with a cast of character. Rich Ryan did it one year. I think this is ESPN trying to say to the NFL, because now they have a Super Bowl and they have this big contract. And, you know, they brought in Buck and Aikman. Like, we're serious, we're going to take our, regardless of what you think about Fowler, he's their lead college guy. So, I feel like they're like, oh, look at us, we're putting the lead when, you know, that. Yeah, I think they screwed up and I think they know they screwed up. I think that they ended up shifting who was in charge of the NFL. It was Stephanie Drewley. And they moved her off the NFL after, you know, I think that didn't help her cause in terms of staying on the NFL. I think they were satisfied with Levy. He was a good guy, which they value. After they brought in Joe Buck, he was very gracious. You know, Levy's a very good hockey guy, especially studio host. I thought he could have, you know, could have been the pregame show on Monday Night Football. He's in, again, not their, in my opinion, they had other people who are better play -by -players for football, but it was good. Like, so, yeah, I don't think it was to impress the NFL. They got Joe Buck and Troy Aikman. They got the Mannings. I mean, they spend, they're spending 50, 60 million dollars a year on their booths. Like, I don't think the second team booth is gonna, you know. If anything, I think it was, there was a thought before Buck and Aikman that Fallon and Herb Street might get the NFL. Might get Monday Night Football. Might get the potential Super Bowl. And then this is kind of a carrot since they didn't get it. But I'd argue, and I even talked to Chris Fowler about this. So, I don't know if this is the case. I just don't know if, I mean, Chris Fowler does the national championship. He does the biggest college game every week for Disney. I can't, like, I get it. Maybe he wanted to do NFL. But is this really gonna satisfy him because you're doing a second game, which generally aren't that great? I don't, I don't see that long -term, personally. And I think also, strategically, if I'm ESPN, I'm putting a young play -by -player. Now, Joe Buck, we both think it's great. Like, he and Ian Eagle are the best two play -by -players going right now. And, um, but, Joe Buck's contract's up in a couple of years. If I'm ESPN, and I, you know, I think they'll probably re -sign Joe Buck, and they should. That said, he makes a lot of money. And, you know, I would be saying, who can I develop? What young guy can I develop? So when I go into that negotiation, I really have somebody who's on the rise. And I can say, hey, look, you don't want this, you know, the 15 million a year? Then we'll go here, you know? But if you start demanding, I'm not saying this is going to happen, but, demanding even more and more money, I'd want an option. I don't think they've created an option. They've actually put somebody in that spot who they've already said they'd rather spend 15 million dollars on Joe Buck than have Chris Fowler as the lead play -by -player. So, I just think negotiation -wise, and strategically, in terms of saving money, it wasn't a great decision. Yeah. I don't understand the insistence on the three -person booth, either. They had Fowler, Greasy, and Riddick. Excuse me, excuse me. Levy, Riddick, Greasy. Now it's Fowler or Lofsky, Riddick. To me, that, and, Fowler's used to a two -person booth with Herb Street. They have Buck and Aikman, which is a two -person booth. I don't understand the insistence on the three -person booth. It's just, for football, it just, I don't get it, but, that's just my - It complicates, it over -complicates it. Yeah. And like you said, chemistry. I think it's much harder to develop a chemistry with three. I mean, you know, the local Mets situation is different with Gary Cohn, Ron Darl - Is it in baseball, is it football? What three men, can you name - I mean, I guess back in the old Monday Night Football days, there were three men booths that had - Yeah, Collinsworth and Aikman with Buck that one year. Yeah, one year it lasted, you know. So, I don't know. But, there's no more staggered double -headers. The next one is week 14, and both games will start at 8 -15. I think that's the one that's going to piss a lot of people off. But, that's a long way down the road. You got the two TVs. Yeah. I asked you if ESPN, how they feel about Monday Night Football. Anything you've heard about how they feel about their new partnership with Pat McAfee. I mean, it's early, but they're bullish on it. I mean, they've kind of handed the keys to the network to McAfee. I mean, you can't - it's kind of like Stephen A. now. You can't really turn on ESPN almost every day except basically Sunday without seeing Pat. And so, you know, I think initially the ratings weren't that good. I think they got a little better in terms of the TV ratings. I think that kind of makes some sense because if you think about it, he was a YouTube show. Yeah, he's got to play for TV. Yeah, and he's still a YouTube show. Well, it is a play for TV because they think that they had Max in there before. They think that the ratings will be high enough that they'll be able to charge more for the ad rates. I guarantee you the money they'll make off of McAfee on social media and YouTube will be 8 billion times more than the money they made off Max Kellerman on social media. Oh, 100%. No, you're right. No, you're right. There's no doubt about that. And look, they want to get, I will say this, like, does it work? I think a lot of times when companies make big moves, you know, big time moves, a lot of times they make those moves when the person's kind of towards the end, you know, they got McAfee on the rise. Like, you know, we, you know, you and I have been aware of McAfee for years now, but he's really like, you know, here, I don't think he's at the plateau, you know, where most people go up and then they plateau and then they go down. He's at, he's still, I think, going up and then maybe the plateau is on the horizon and you can plateau for 20, 25 years if you have the right attitude and personality and just have the right act. So that's where I think that makes a lot of sense as a bet because it's not, I'll hit one close to home, Rick Riley leaving ESPN. I mean, leaving SI for ESPN where, you know, Rick Riley is one of the great columnist ever, but at that point, you know, whatever, maybe it was the internet, I don't know exactly. It just didn't really work as well at ESPN as it did at SI. And so I just think they've done that and that's kind of, you know, teams do that in sports and I think sometimes networks do that. And so I feel like signing McAfee in his mid -30s is kind of like signing a baseball free agent who's in his mid -20s and I think that's what you want to do as opposed to getting a, signing a 35 -year -old and, you know, thinking they can still play, you know, like, I don't know, like a Josh Donaldson, maybe trading for someone like that, Jimmy. You see what I did there? I don't need reminders of the horrific Yankee season. I just did that on purpose. I don't need that. My head was going, who am I going to say? All right, yeah, Josh Donaldson, but it was a treat. Just a, yeah, you want me to say Brian Cashman should be fired. It's amazing too, they replay that. I didn't know this was going to be the situation going into it, but they replay the show as soon as it's over, I think, on ESPN 2 and then they replay it at night on maybe ESPN News or one of their, what you said about if you're going to put on one of the ESPNs at any point in the day, you're going to see Pat McAfee. Yeah. So that's good for him. Like I, you know, people feel like - But I also think, ESPN has to be, they have Aaron Rodgers on their air every week. It's a news making thing that's on their air every week. They've got Nick, he's got Nick Saban on his show every week. Yeah. That's a news making thing every week. I would think ESPN has to be, forget the numbers because the numbers, I think, will be there. It's still a new thing. You have, the ESPN audience is older, the McAfee audience is younger, it might take some, but I would think ESPN just on the brand and the cachet of that show has to be thrilled. I think so. I mean, but if you talk, like I have, again, I'll probably make some calls here in the near future, but so I haven't talked specifically with anybody about that. But generally speaking, when these things first start, everyone loves it. So then we'll see. Again, I'm not saying, I could see it either way. Like, you know, McAfee has not really stayed at any of these, throughout any of these contracts he's had. So that's something to watch. Maybe this one he does, but that hasn't been the case previously. So that is something. I think the fact that he's on game day has to help the relationship there a little bit with ESPN. Here's the thing about McAfee. If you're managing him, in my opinion, and it's like Casey Jones, the former coach of the Celtics, was known for just throwing out the ball and telling McHale, Parrish, and Bird to go play, Dennis Johnson. At least that's how I remember as a kid. That was his reputation. And I think McAfee is sort of like that. Just give him the ball, let him do his thing. He's not looking to, you know, for some strategy. Let's, you know, triangle offense. He's not looking for that. He's looking for, let me do my thing. I know what I'm doing. And the thing about McAfee is he's very smart. Like, I know he plays this, like, he's not smart thing. It works very hard. He works hard and he's very smart. He's very savvy. He acts as if, like, you know, maybe he's, you know, just a dumb jock. But he understands the media business very well. We need, we need to discuss the Kelsey Taylor Swift thing because I actually think it's a legitimate media story. If Fox is going to get these increase in their demographics of the female audience, the young people, the NFL has gone all in on this thing. I mean, they changed their Twitter header to, like, a Taylor Swift thing. They're putting out Travis Kelsey Swiftiest plays on their social media. He's gained, I guess, a ton of followers, the jersey sale. Let me start with this. How did you think Fox handled it on Sunday when she was in the stadium? Do you think they overdid it? Do you think the fact that they had an unwatchable game takes them off the hook? What was your take on the Chiefs -Bears on Sunday when she was there? I think the second part, and I wouldn't take them off the hook, but I think the second part, you have an unwatchable game that you had to switch most of the country out of because it was so non -competitive, that you have Taylor Swift there, it's a big deal. And, you know, there's a lot of Taylor Swift fans who are football fans, a lot of non -Taylor Swift fans who weren't watching that game, but it was a talking point, right? Like, I saw Taylor Swift in the concert this summer, but that was kind of - Look at you! Yeah, how do you like that? Look at you! You couldn't even get tickets. Big shot. Where'd you get tickets? My daughter's friend just won the lottery. No shenanigans. Oh, really? Tickets were $235 each, which is still a lot of money, but not, like, $1 ,000. And it was just kind of happenstance, how I ended up going. I was going to say, if your daughter's friend got tickets, how did you end up at the era's tour? I mean - Were you, like - It's just a long drive to get to the metal lands, didn't want them driving back. They're older, they can drive, but at, you know, one o 'clock in the morning from Taylor Swift, so - But you were in MetLife and watched the show. Yes. Friendship bracelets? Well, you want to know something funny? This is a good one. So, my daughter's friend said to me, do you want a - do you want a jewel? And I'm like, no, no, no, I'm okay. Thinking she's saying a jewel, like a jewel, smoke. But she was saying, like, to, like, get bedazzled, a little jewel, which I would have taken. So later, I was like, I told my daughter, I said, but your friend, she said she asked me if I wanted a jewel. She's like, no, no, she didn't say you wanted a jewel. She said, do you want a - a jewel to put some ju - you know. Right. I didn't have any bracelets, but I was into - I liked Taylor Swift. I wouldn't go again. I kind of felt bad being there, because there's people who give their left arm to be there. But it was - look, she is an unbelievable performer. I mean, it was - you could - first of all, I liked some of her songs. Secondly, the level of performance. It was just, you know, it was an A+. I mean, that - that - and that is something, even if you didn't like her music, you can appreciate it. And also, I appreciate it if I had to go to the bathroom. Easy pass right in there. No one. Right. No one's leaving their seat except for people like you who aren't in it. Yeah, and especially, yeah, and more skewed women.

"With Bloomberg, you get the story behind the story, the story behind the global birth rate, behind your EV batteries, environmental impact behind sand. Yeah, sand. You get context and context changes everything. Go to Bloomberg dot com to get context. Has been for a stronger one. We're going to watch it, though, to see if somehow global economic demand is decreasing and maybe that plays a little bit into it, maybe longer term. All right, as we get the closing bells here in New York City, what had been a really mixed market here from oscillations, from gains to losses, and now back again to gains. The Dow Jones Industrial Average higher by about 40 points or a tenth of a percent. The S &P 500 higher by about 18 points or four tenths of a percent. A similar move higher on a percentage basis for the NASDAQ composite and a similar move higher on a percentage basis for the Russell 2000 girl. Yeah, the Usher index, though, on a tear. I saw what you guys did before. Are we going to talk about Taylor Swift at any point? I know we have some stuff together. Later, later, later. All right, the S &P, let's do the divide. 300 names to the upside, 199 to the downside. Katie for unchanged. All right, I'll save the Taylor Swift comments. Let's take a look at some of these industry groups here. Like we were saying, energy top of the pile. That's true on the industry group level as well, up 1 .3 percent. You can see also chips getting some love. So, too, are some of the auto names. Actually, more green than red. If you do look into the red, though, it's definitely some strong trends there. Household products, for example, off by about half a percent. Food and beverage off by seven tenths of a percent. The staples today really taking a beating. All right, so let's get to some of the individual gainers, if we may, and here's one. It's actually, I think, the number two gainer in the S &P 500, number one gainer in NASDAQ 100. We're talking about GE Healthcare. I couldn't find any real catalyst. This company, though, on pace for its worst full quarter since being spun off.

So that's where we're doing one of my favorite movies the last 40 years. Stay tuned. Coming up next, we had an action packed loaded week three. We're gonna talk Taylor Swift, Travis Kelsey. We're gonna talk about Miami putting up 70. Sal's team losing. We're gonna introduce a new character, parent corner. Sal sent his kid to college. Oh man, this is almost two hours. Let's get to it. First pro jam. Let's get to it. All right, taping this a little after 8 .30, Sunday night Pacific time. The hardest word come in and show business is here. Cousin Sal just watched Pittsburgh Vegas, a bizarre game, but we're not starting there. We're starting with your team. You're stupid cowboys. You compliment me and now that I see what you did here. Okay, all right. Your stupid team that I thought I could throw into a little 11 and a half Arizona, like throw a bit. All they had to do was run by two and a half. I had a FanDuel boost. I had real life money. I had a million dollar pick and it's like, of course they'll beat the Cardinals by two and a half. Rahim thought the Cardinals were tanking. No, no, that's not what happened. And now you're containing cowboys. They couldn't even make it to my birthday before they fell apart. They couldn't even make it to the end of September. Was that the goal? I guess had they known your birthday was a Monday. Yeah, they might've stuck around. I know, I know. I don't know what to tell you. It sucked. I had it tied to everything too. I had an Oregon this and the Chiefs this and the 49ers and the Cowboys and everything. And I didn't even care that they had three, essentially three offensive linemen out or that Trayvon Diggs got hurt. Not that I didn't care, but I didn't think it would affect this game. And then they just got, they went out there and got their asses kicked. 13 penalties and didn't force any turnovers and couldn't do shit in the red zone. And of course it's a double digit loss, jerks. I kept, I had in the back of my head Rahim's theory that the Cardinals were tanking and that they were only playing one, a good first half. And then they would throw away the second half because their real goal is Caleb Williams. So at halftime, I'm like, I'm not going to panic yet. Maybe the Rahim's theory, no. The Rahim's theory was not true. The Cardinals actually played really well. And your team, I will say, look, this happens sometimes. Usually it doesn't happen in week three. It happens later in the year. But the team that is getting smoke blowing up their butts, they have this easy game and say, oh yeah, we're going to Arizona. It's going to be half Dallas fans. This will be a layup for us. So we've seen this scenario, just not this early in the season. What worried me though, from a Dallas standpoint, forget about the offensive line and the blocking stuff. Cause you'll get those guys back. But you do seem to have like third and seven, third and eight if Lamb is covered, where do you go issued? Like, you know, not everyone has the Kelsey type, but you don't have the Devontae Adams. You don't have really any of those guys. You don't have that big physical tight end in the middle. You don't have the awesome, you know, James White type third down running back who's going to get open. And you could really feel it in the red zone. They were one for five in the red zone today. Yeah. I mean, you know, what's his name? The tight end who went to Houston, I already forgot his name from Dallas last year, was our second lead. Schultz was our second leading receiver last year. So yeah, there is something to be said about that. And I do want to put it in proper perspective. If the Eagles lose to Tampa Bay, which is a possibility tomorrow, the week is a wash in the NFC East, right? That means everyone will have lost. So I don't want to get too crazy, but it did expose, you're right, everything I always worry about. Can Dak come up with a big play down the stretch? You know, are these injuries too much to overcome? And Mike McCarthy in that play calling, it really seemed like we were up 12 points trying to bleed the clock, not down 12 points. And it's like, oh, maybe he's just afraid to throw it. And then when we saw, he threw into three defenders and you cleverly quipped, how did they know which of the three were to intercept it? Yeah, that was kind of wrenching. That was an angry text to yours. I was just angrily texting. Like it was your fault that I was losing all my teases. Yeah, he just threw into three guys on one of the biggest plays of the game. Complete panic throw.

A highlight from SEC Punts ETF Applications Till October
"Welcome back to The Breakdown with me, NLW. It's a daily podcast on macro, Bitcoin, and the big picture power shifts remaking our world. What's going on, guys? It is Friday, September 1st, and today we are catching up on crypto, on macro, on all the things. Before we get into that, however, if you are enjoying The Breakdown, please go subscribe to it, give it a rating, give it a review, or if you want to dive deeper into the conversation, come join us on the Breakers Discord. You can find a link in the show notes or go to bit .ly slash breakdown pod. Well, friends, the end of the summer, the beginning of the fall is here. We are kicking off the best season of the year with tons of catch up across both macro and crypto. And we're going to start with a follow up on what is obviously the biggest story and theme of the week, which is Grayscale's defeat of the SEC in their lawsuit and the implications for Spot Bitcoin ETF approval. Now, somehow, apparently some people thought that just because they lost in court, the SEC was likely to turn right around and approve an ETF. That of course was not the case, and the SEC have in fact deferred their decisions on approving Spot Bitcoin ETFs until at least October. On Thursday, the agency filed to defer decision making across all seven ETF applications that were filed in June, including applications from BlackRock, VanEck, and Bitwise. Now, even though they didn't make the decision now, that Tuesday publication of the court order delivering victory to Grayscale was widely viewed as moving the needle on the likelihood of an ETF approval. In the wake of the decision, Bloomberg analysts had bumped up their odds of an ETF approval by the end of this year to 75%. Still, they cautioned that their expectation was, of course, that the SEC would defer decision making this week. Markets reacted pretty dramatically to the Grayscale order on Tuesday, with Bitcoin pumping more than 7 .5 % on the news. That move has now been completely retraced on the delays, with Bitcoin back trading at around 26 ,000. One small subpart of this story that some have been interested in is that the dumping began around 11 .40am on the East Coast, but the SEC's first decision wasn't released until 3 .20 in the afternoon. Coincidental, or did someone have advance information? That seems like a great thing to speculate about on Twitter. The next decision point for the SEC will be on the week of October 16th, when all seven ETFs have another chance to be approved or delayed. Remember that the SEC is able to delay each application up to three times before making a final decision. If the SEC drags this out to its conclusion, they will have a total of 240 days to make their call, bringing us to mid -March next year for this cohort of ETF applications. Now, in practical terms, we're likely to have a better idea about how this will all play out by January 10th. That's the final date for the SEC to either approve or deny the ARK and 21 shares application, which was filed two months earlier than the others. The pattern is certainly for the SEC to delay. During the Grayscale application to convert GBTC into an ETF, the SEC took each opportunity it had to delay their decision making. Still, analysts appear convinced that the Grayscale decision leaves little wiggle room for the SEC to deny the current crop of ETFs. Three appellate judges found that the SEC had indeed acted in an arbitrary and capricious manner in denying Grayscale. They pointed out the hypocrisy of approving futures -based ETFs while denying spot -based claiming that the two markets had a 99 .9 % correlation. The judges further said that the existing surveillance sharing agreements with the Chicago Mercantile Exchange, which operates the Bitcoin futures market, quote, are identical and should have the same likelihood of detecting fraudulent or manipulative conduct in the market for Bitcoin and Bitcoin futures. And so now, although the SEC has been ordered to reconsider Grayscale's application, the timeline for that happening is still extremely unclear. Indeed, in an interview with Bloomberg on Wednesday, Grayscale CEO Michael Sonnenshine said he didn't even know exactly how this process would work. Grayscale isn't even clear on whether it needs to submit a new application. Now after this ruling, the SEC has the next 45 days to appeal the order. And after that time, the court can provide more detail on how Grayscale's application should be dealt with. When it comes to markets, they are showing an increased conviction that GBTC will successfully convert into an ETF. On Tuesday, the GBTC discount closed to 17%, which is the slimmest margin since late 2021. Since then, the gap has widened by a few percentage points, but it's still a long way from the deepest discount of over 48%, which occurred in December of last year. Moving on to catch up on the latest FUD from Binance, yet another senior executive has resigned. Leon Fung, Binance's Asia -Pacific head, has parted ways with the exchange. Fung's resignation was initially leaked to Bloomberg before being publicly disclosed, and a Binance spokesperson declined to elaborate on his departure other than confirming the resignation. Fung had been responsible for Binance's recent push to expand into Asian markets, including Thailand, Japan, and South Korea. But since he maintains no active social media presence, it's unclear when he joined and left the exchange. Now, one thing we haven't mentioned recently as we've talked about Binance's various issues is that they have actually seen a fairly significant decline in market share over the past six months. In February, Binance enjoyed 63 % market share and spot crypto trading volume, but by August that number had slipped to 45%, with the shift mainly being captured by Huobi and Poloniex. Over in the world of BUSD, its days are numbered, with Binance winding down the white -label stablecoin. In a statement released on Thursday, Binance confirmed that support for the token would end in February of next year. BUSD was of course kneecapped by New York regulators at the beginning of this year, when Paxos was ordered to cease and desist, minting the stablecoin. Until now, Binance had not officially commented on the future of BUSD, which was still available on the centralized exchange and Binance Smart Chain. The decision to end support for BUSD in February is in line with Paxos' commitment to end redemptions at that time. In a statement, Binance encouraged users to convert their BUSD into other stablecoins ahead of the sunset date. The exchange promoted conversion to FDUSD at no cost and at a one -to -one peg. FDUSD is a new stablecoin issued by Hong Kong -based trust company First Digital that was launched in June and is featured in other Binance promotions since then. Staying on the theme of markets, Bitfinex launched a perpetual futures contract for Binance's BNB token on Thursday as well. And over the first day of trading, BNB fell by more than 4%. Investor Travis Kling tweeted, BNB has been trading for nearly six years and Paolo and the gang at Bitfinex waited until today to launch a perp on it. Cryptoskeptic CryptoHippo says, Tether is getting ready to obliterate CZ, an unbacked infinite money printing machine versus the biggest wash trading volume crypto exchange in the world. I'm going to put my money on Tether winning this fight. Expect sudden price drops on the Bitfinex BNB perp. Now the biggest mystery of this week was a sealed filing that showed up on the court docket of the SEC's lawsuit against Binance late on Monday night. We have, it should be clear, no information about the contents of the filing. Speculation on Tuesday covered a wide range of theories. Some thought the filing could simply be related to a dull procedural issue regarding discovery. Others thought the filing might involve sensitive material gathered by a criminal investigation conducted by the DOJ. Andrew at AP Abacus says, Update, sources state that the sealed Binance motions this week are riddled with heavy, heavy claims. One source said, Given the natures of the issues here, surprised that we, the SEC, are taking this on, should be in the hands of the DOJ at this point. Andrew adds that he was instructed to go back and look at Bizlato claims and indictments and then add scale. Bizlato was, of course, a tiny unknown exchange that engaged in money laundering for Russia dark web markets. Some evidence revealed ties between Bizlato and Binance. When the indictment was unsealed, the DOJ treated Bizlato as their crowning achievement with a flashy preannounced press conference. This caused, of course, widespread confusion within the crypto community, who basically, without exception, had never heard of the obscure exchange. Now, also on Thursday, the old lawsuit between the New York Department of Financial Services and Tether and Bitfinex also saw some action. This is the case which was brought by the regulator in April 2019, with allegations that Bitfinex had manipulated Bitcoin markets and Tether's reserves were lacking. The matter was settled in February 2021, with Tether agreeing to publish quarterly reserve attestations over the following two years. The court retained jurisdiction in case the matter needed to be reopened at a later date. This week, the regulator filed a heavily redacted motion with sealed evidence attached. Because the filing is secret, we only have a vague idea of what it relates to. Unredacted parts of the motion appear to relate to accounting irregularities and deficiencies, as well as a lack of clarity around loans between the two firms. The regulator has requested that Bitfinex prepare an unknown witness for testimony. Knapp -Jenner tweets, Now, of course, Sam's involvement as a potential witness against Tether, against Binance, are likely going to be part of the rumors surrounding all of these issues, right up until the moment it's either proven true or proven not true. Still, with that, let's shift over for a moment to the macro side of the house. Tuesday's Job Openings and Labor Turnover Survey showed cracks beginning to open up in what has been a surprisingly robust labor market. Nick Timaros, the chief economics correspondent at the Wall Street Journal, wrote, This is a JOLTS report the Fed will be pleased to see. Basically, this July, JOLTS report indicated that job openings across the US had decreased to 8 .8 million from 9 .17 million in June. This marks the sixth month of declines in open positions over the past seven months and the lowest level since March of 2021. Compounding the story of a softening labor market, June's job openings number was massively revised. When first reported, the data showed almost 9 .6 million open rolls across the labor market. That means the Fed is now looking at data that shows around 800 ,000 fewer job openings than the data available last month. Importantly, job openings has been frequently referenced as Fed Chair Jerome Powell's favorite metric for gauging the tightness of the labor market. The collapse in job openings over this year and accelerating into the summer should give the Fed some confidence that their policies are beginning to bring supply and demand for workers back into alignment. There are now just 1 .5 job openings for every unemployed worker. That ratio peaked above two during May of last year. This means that by this metric, the labor market is now at its weakest point in almost two years. Now this morning, we also got the non -farm payrolls report for August, and Bloomberg summed it up with an article titled US Jobs Report Signals Smooth Downshift in Labor Market. TLDR, employers in August added 187 ,000 jobs, slightly higher than the 170 ,000 anticipated. In addition to that, hundreds of thousands more joined the labor force, with a growing number unable to find work right away. As Bloomberg puts it, quote, combined with wage growth running at the slowest pace since early last year, the data illustrate why Americans are a little less upbeat about the job market. While hiring and incomes are still firm enough to bolster consumer spending, job openings have retreated and layoffs are picking up. This Bloomberg says gives the Fed room to pause interest rates later this month while keeping their options open for another rate hike before the end of the year. And that's basically what traders are anticipating, at least when it comes to September. Over in GDP land, US GDP for Q2 was revised on Wednesday down to a fairly middling 2 .1%. The second GDP estimate report from the Bureau of Economic Analysis trimmed the forecast down from 2 .4 % in the advanced estimate. Both household spending and gross domestic income rose for the quarter, with GDI reversing a negative trend over the previous two quarters. This metric typically tracks GDP closely, but a pretty significant gap has opened up over the past three quarters. Now, while the GDP number isn't stellar, it's also far from the recessionary conditions that were forecast for this year in late 2022. An almost consensus opinion among economics had the US hurtling towards a recession in the latter half of this year. So far, there are few signs that a recession will actually materialize. One of the most telling data points that indicates the US may be on track to avoid a recession has been the Atlanta Fed's GDP Now forecast. The estimate has Q3 GDP coming in at a blisteringly hot 5 .6 % currently, which is far above the blue chip consensus forecast, which was last reported at 1 .7 % in early August. Now, pretty interestingly, some economists believe that blockbuster entertainment consumption has provided a significant boost to Q3 GDP. Bloomberg economists wrote in a note this week that the combination of tours from Taylor Swift and Beyonce, as well as the dual hit movies Barbie and Oppenheimer, are believed to have added 8 .5 billion to GDP this quarter. Still, the note recognized that the economic strength driven by these cultural phenomenon is short -lived. The note said, A large chunk of the strength comes from temporary factors. These factors create a mirage of resilient consumption when in fact it's running out of steam. So, overall, it feels like the data are showing a leveling off across the board. Nothing is great, but nothing is also dramatically bad. The big question is whether this is moderation into a soft landing or something more of an inflection point. From the Fed's perspective, it certainly doesn't suggest anything alarming that would justify another September hike, but also nothing that would knock them out of the pause stance into actually considering cuts. The bigger questions are what happens in Q4, as things like student loans restart, employer retention credit might get repealed, and of course, Taylor Swift leaves the country. Just some of the things to watch as we move into this fall season, but for now, I am going to send you off into Labor Day weekend, full of brightness, optimism, and all the possibility that September brings.

According to Dana Telsey, founder, CEO and chief research officer at Telsey Advisory Group. It's all about essentials. If you have essentials, that's what's selling. And Telsey also says when it comes to apparel, if you haven't noticed already, expect to see a lot of people shopping at the discounters off prices where the action is for apparel, especially, she says, with those student loan repayments resuming in October for millions of students and parents. I think when you think about the headwinds of rising interest rates, you have student loans that are coming up. There's less to go round. And Telsey also says there's another thing people are willing to spend on costumes or clothes to wear to films like the Barbie movie or things like those sparkling shorts and other clothes to wear to Taylor Swift concerts.

A highlight from THE HASH: Headlines | Top Stories of the Week 08-21-23
"You're listening to The Hash Headlines on the Coindesk Podcast Network. Get caught up on this week's top stories from the hash crew. And just a reminder, Coindesk is a news source and does not provide investment advice. Monday's top story. This is the most exciting story because we're currently in a crypto bear market. Crypto is going to zero. Same with Bitcoin. That's not financial advice. That's a joke for the trolls. But when I first saw this come out, I thought it was fiend tech. And I'm starting to kind of get that vibe on crypto Twitter from some folks because a lot of people are talking about privacy. We'll get into that. So friend tech becomes massive ether money machine as NBA players FaZe Clan join in. And then friend tech also gains 100 ,000 users in days, even in depths of a bear market. So if you guys don't know, friend tech is a social tokenization protocol. It's built on base, which is Coinbase's open source blockchain. There's no token affiliated with that. So if you see another base coin floating around, it's not affiliated with base or Coinbase. So please be careful. Do your due diligence. And it's from invite only. So if you don't have a friend code, you can't join. So it's kind of like high school. If you weren't cool enough to get invited to a party and you showed up, sometimes they would beat you up. I don't know if that happened to you guys, but basically it tokenizes Twitter slash X accounts because we rebranded to X and everything is on chain. Everything is on chain and it made more revenue than Bitcoin, Tron and Uniswap in the past 24 hours, which makes sense because again, this is a bear market and everybody's broke. But anyways, I haven't tested it out. One of the things I did do is I went to the official Twitter page because that's always where you should start. If you can verify that's the real account. Okay. I clicked on the link and it wanted me to download the mobile app. I don't like to do crypto related things on my daily cell phone. I like to use a burner. So that kind of protrude me a little bit. I wasn't really like, eh, because I feel like it's a lot easier to get hacked and whatnot. So who wants to take this? I got you. Okay, let's go. I downloaded it and I was with you, Wendy. I actually don't like using my phone for crypto things. This one was a little different because you couldn't use on your desktop. And so you had to use on your phone, but then there wasn't like really an app for it. You had to go to like Safari or Chrome on your iPhone or on your Android, then download it, then add it to your home screen. And so you're basically going through like Safari or whatnot. So a little odd there. The thing that's interesting to me about this is basically like sort of like a light polling sample and how many people are still paying attention to crypto, who like willing to download stuff, like around with things. It seems that there's about a hundred thousand unique users right now of friend tech. And that means that there's probably a hundred thousand people who are interested and willing to play around with this. Maybe there's like a little higher end of people like yourself who quite haven't downloaded yet, but I'm sure will the next few weeks if it continues to grow at the same pace. Now that if is big, right? Because we've seen a lot of these projects take off for a few weeks and then die down and we forget about them forever. That's what happened with so many of these different social ideas. The thing now we're kind of hitting though is that peak interest with NBA players jumping into it. Some e -sports guys jumping into it. Their interest of course is probably just be in the next thing. This is an interesting project, trades digital shares of each other. There's an invite code aspect to it. So I think that's what we're getting some interest right now. I'm waiting for like a few bigger names to jump in and then we'll see if there's some staying power with friend tech. Yeah. But the thing, I know Jen, you had your hand up, but I have to comment really quick. Two things. First and foremost, generally we see crypto Twitter absolutely clown when the celebrities come in and they say that that's the top. So it's going to be interesting to see the type of feedback there. Also too, we like to look at on chain data and look at how many different wallets have been created for different types of protocols, et cetera. And with wallets, anybody could create a wall. I can, I have like a hundred different metamask wallets to manage. Yes, I know I'm insane, but we can also maybe apply that there is maybe only a hundred thousand people left that are daily active users of crypto instead of using on chain data. Just a thought. I may be stupid for saying that, but Jen. Yeah. You know, well, you said that we've seen these like crypto applications come up with a bunch of users, hundreds of thousands, and then we never hear about them again. We've seen the same with social platforms, right? Threads came out, so many people rushed to sign up and then no one really stuck around. No one really used it. And we've asked so many times on the show before, like what does the future of social media look like and what is Web3's part in building the future of social media? And I think that this is quite interesting, whether it sticks around or not, it kind of leverages that idea that like people want to be in these intimate circles where they feel like they have community, where they feel like they're in groups and they have access to influencers and celebrities, even if they don't actually. And I think we've seen this kind of play out in like Facebook groups is super popular for Facebook. You know, when Taylor Swift had those like listening parties, I believe in her homes where fans were invited to come out and like hang out with her and be in these intimate circles. I think that's like the really interesting part here. And it doesn't use an NFT or like all of this other complicated language and you're able to kind of leverage the audience you already have on Twitter and go to this familiar social place. So I think the concept is quite interesting, whether it sticks around. That is TBD. Zach? Wasn't this the one that like everyone got excited about because there was the prospect of some future airdrop? Is that the one? Are we talking about the same one? There was like, okay, cool. So I guess that's my question. Why do we think people are doing this? Do we think they're doing this because it's a cool thing? Or do we think they're just out there digital prospecting, putting a stake in the ground should the land eventually, right? Yeah. I didn't actually know about the airdrop and I think it is that now that I know. No, I think it's a little bit above. Like there is an airdrop feature and it's like one of the widgets on the main tabs is the airdrop feature, but it's unclear what that airdrop means as of now, because they haven't done one yet. You get like some sort of loyalty points. The more you trade people's shares, the more you use application. But I think that's also like a big draw. In fact, like I can be in a group chat with people. I can be in a group chat with Kobe. I can be in a group chat with whoever it's like to talk to town on Twitter on this application if I buy their shares. I think that's what's drawing people in. I think the airdrop will, especially if there is like some monetary value at the beginning of it. But right now I think there's a little bit of two things going on here. Wendy's cynical about this, though. So is this the is this like the Only Fans for boys? Yeah, possibly.
A highlight from THE HASH: Friend.tech Becomes Massive Ether Money Machine; Mark Cuban Slams OpenSeas NFT Royalty Policy Change

I think the airdrop will, especially if there is like some monetary value at the beginning of it. But right now, I think there's a little bit of two things going on here. Wendy is cynical about this, though. So is this like the OnlyFans for boys? Yeah, possibly. It sounds like it. I mean, because regular OnlyFans is for boys also and girls. I think, you know, we should discriminate all over everyone. You know what? Crypto Twitter seems to just slam women that have OnlyFans, though, so I'm just trying to be relatable here. Okay. One plus one equals seven sometimes. It's true. What's good to talk about Vitalik? Vitalik has moved some Ethereum, about a $1 million worth of Ethereum to Coinbase. What does this mean? Well, might indicate that he's willing to sell a little bit. He moved about 600 ETH to Coinbase over the weekend. Vitalik's public addresses for his Ethereum holdings are out there. Most people know where they are, visible on most Ether scans or like blockchain explorers out there. And for good reason, right? He's probably the most central figurehead in all of crypto because he's the frontman or the image of the Ethereum ecosystem, which is the largest smart contract ecosystem and the second largest coin by market cap behind Bitcoin. So when people see Vitalik or anyone else moving money with that big of a name out there, they start paying attention. Of course, we don't know if he sold this Ethereum, and we also don't know the reasons behind it. Maybe he just wanted to get some more cushion for his USD bank account. Who knows? Zach, I'll throw this one up to you. I don't look at this story and be like, oh, this is like a big ominous, bad dark cloud story. I just think our boy is, you know, he's traveling all around the world. He needs some money. Hey, man, I'm with you. I think big picture, like this is the funny thing about crypto, right? You get to watch this stuff happen. You just get to see it. You're like, oh, we know that this is a wallet associated with Vitalik. And you know, he's chose to keep that in the public domain, essentially. And now we can sort of see the flows of money across the world into these exchange addresses, right? So it is just kind of a funny feature of crypto. It never gets dull to me that we can have these conversations based on on -chain activity and on -chain activity alone. We don't know his intent. We don't know why. We don't know what's happening. We just know that we can watch this thing move from point A to point B and deduce maybe that there's something animating that, right? And I think that's a really funny feature of crypto that we can talk about these things without any other knowledge, aside from the fact that we just know one wallet interacted with another. And therefore, we know this one happens to be Vitalik and we can speculate on whatever the million dollars is going to be for if it's for, you know, I don't know, getting more travel luggage so he can go to different places around the world or not. But yeah, I don't know. There's not much to say here. I don't know if this is going to like change people's price like projections for Ethereum, right? Or if it, I don't think this indicates that like Vitalik is any less bullish on his creation. But it is just kind of a funny thing, least blotter section of like the theory of daily news that you can read with your morning coffee. Really quick before I hand it over to Wendy. The funny part about this is the Ethereum Foundation, which of course is a steward of a lot that happens to Ethereum, does sell the top almost every single cycle. They have like successfully sold the top on ETH. And they put that money back into treasury to support grants for Ethereum ecosystem. So it ends up, I think, being a net positive. But a lot of people look at when the Ethereum Foundation sells and then sort of make a note about that. And this one, people obviously not at the top for down about, you know, 50 plus percent from the top in 2021, 2022. But people might be looking at this and be like, oh, maybe we're looking at like another lower point in the future if Vitalik is selling. Wendy? It's literally $1 million. It's really not a lot of money, especially when you're looking at crypto whale wallets. Like there's so many people that are moving around a lot more capital that are loaning it out, doing things. I also want to reference a story from Coindesk back in May 17th of 2021, Vitalik burns $6 billion in SHIB token says he doesn't want the power. So Vitalik has kind of been infamous of doing different things with his funds and wallets that have been tracked. So I don't think it's necessarily a big deal that he moved $1 million of ETH worth to Coinbase. I think if it was going to be a very, very large amount, it probably would be done OTC. But maybe he just wanted, hey, maybe he wanted to bridge the funds over to Bait or to FriendTech. Who knows? Who knows? Wendy, this isn't the first time Vitalik has sold Ether. So I don't think this is going to like do anything to the markets, but I wanted to ask all of you a question based on what Zach said. What do we think if Vitalik does cash out $1 million here, what do we think he's going to buy? What luxury luggage does Vitalik buy? I love his luggage post. That's one of the better blogs out there is how Vitalik lives out of a 40 liter backpack. And here's how he does it. That one is a good piece of content. That's a lot of 40 liter backpacks if we're talking a million dollars. Yeah, I don't think it's that. Maybe he's hungry. Maybe he's hungry. A lot of backpacks. He got to buy snacks.

A highlight from LGM Podcast: On a Road Called Oppenheimer
"It's a three -hour movie, and it doesn't feel that way. And, like, a week earlier, I had gone to see Mission Impossible 7 -1 -13, gosh, whatever. And, you know, that's a movie that's an action movie. People are leaping off cliffs and leaping onto trains, and the trains are falling over cliffs. And it's 15 minutes shorter, and it feels longer. This is the Lawyers, Guns, & Money podcast. Hello, and welcome to the Lawyers, Guns, & Money podcast. My name is Rob Farley, and joining me today are a large group of LGM front -pagers from New Mexico. We have Cheryl Rofer from Seattle. We have Scott Lemieux. And from a town near Tel Aviv, we have Abigail Nussbaum. And I believe this is your first appearance on an LGM podcast, although you've been with LGM for quite a while. How is everybody doing today? Fantastic. And as I think we were talking about, this is what may be our first four -time zone podcast, which just sort of reinforces how this is becoming a Big Ten blog, right, that eventually the Big Ten will encompass every time zone across the entire world as new universities are added to the league. So what we're talking about today is Oppenheimer. And I think we come at this film from a lot of different backgrounds. Cheryl and myself, you know, I have more general security interests. Cheryl has worked in the nuclear enterprise specifically. Scott and Abigail, both of you, right, really extensively about the aesthetics of film. And you both studied film pretty extensively, even if you don't have sort of the same professional linkage to the material in Oppenheimer that Cheryl and I might. But I think it's a really important film. You know, already at LGM, we have, I think, three long posts. It might be more than that by now on this film. And I've certainly had a lot of thoughts that I haven't put into a post myself. So I think the easiest way to start here we'll give you the pride of place, Scott, to tell us a few of your thoughts about about Oppenheimer. And then we'll go into a more general conversation where we'll try to hit a bunch of different questions that the film arose in our minds. So we'll start with you, Scott. And then we're going to go around with just sort of general impressions of the film. Yeah, welcome, everybody. And my apologies, I've got sort of the end of the cold. So teaching yesterday was a very rough experience. I think my voice sounds a little better today, but I may have to. But if that means that Abigail and Cheryl have to talk more, I think everybody would be happy with that anyway. But yeah, we did the full Barb and Barbie Heimer experience. Barbie on Saturday, Oppenheimer on on Sunday. Not an IMAX, unfortunately, because the Taylor Swift concert made getting to the other end of downtown unviable.
The Dan Bongino Road Show Is Coming to Nashville
"Go again if you missed the podcast or the beginning of today's show. Big announcement when we're doing our first roadshow since the Patriot Awards. That was close to a year ago. Nashville, Tennessee, one of my favorite places on earth. I absolutely Nashville. love Every time I'm there I have a blast. My wife and I have a library of cool stories from Nashville. One of my favorite spots. We're going to be doing our first roadshow Friday, August from John Rich's bar Redneck Riviera and John will be on in about an hour. But another thing happening the night after Saturday at his bar that's really exciting. the It's first time I'm doing this on rumble on my podcast on rumble and we are really stoked. So we'll be I'm just trying to gauge interest in the event from my locals account first where subscribers to the stuff are they subscribe to the accounts I give them kind of first crack at it and once we figure out how seats many we have I'll give you an email address and I'm hoping we can accommodate but it's gonna be kind of limited seating. I wish I had a you know, I wish I could sell out like the Roman Coliseum like that, but I'm not Taylor Swift. So I got to be careful like how many people you want an event that's full and you know, but you don't want so many seats that is echoey. So we had a lot of logistics
Can’t get Taylor Swift tickets? See all of Swift’s eras on display at this costume exhibit
"Olive Taylor Swift's eras are on display in a costume exhibit in New York. Swift's era's tour is selling out stadiums around the country. I promise that you'll never find another like me. For anyone needing their Taylor Swift fix and don't have a ticket. The second floor of the museum of arts and design features dozens of swift costumes and objects. Tim Rogers is museum director. Two of the iconic costumes in this exhibition are from the shake it off video. We have the ballerina costume and we also have the cheerleader costume. The centerpiece is a red wedding dress swift war in a 2021 video. Another of her costumes is very heavy. The bejeweled costume and while I can't tell you exactly how much it weighs, I can tell you that when we were putting it on the mannequins, it took more than one person. Greta Meyers is a swiftie and a fashion student. I know I'll be okay if Taylor Swift has gone through it. The goal of the exhibit to explore how Taylor Swift uses clothing and props to tell stories like a vocabulary. I'm Ed Donahue
Are Oscar Nominations Now Based on Diversity Quotas?
"About this Richard Dreyfuss story because it is very, very interesting. Okay, so Joe bob, you filled me in on this. According to you and your sources at CNN, there is news that essentially in order to get nominated for an Oscar next year, you have to hit all these diversity quotas. Is this right? According to the fact checked news organization known as CNN, films have to meet at least two of four benchmarks, which cover, among other things, whether the lead actors are from underrepresented groups or if at least 30% of the cast and crew come from these underrepresented groups. All right, so this is wild and it's creepy because Hollywood is a precursor to the rest of the country. But we have this clip from Richard Dreyfus I want to play because this was the tie in for you. Play cut 55. What do you think of these new inclusion standards for films? They make me vomit. Why? Because this is an art form. It's also a form of commerce, and it makes money. But it's an art. And no one should be telling me as an artist. That I have to give in to the latest, most current idea of what morality is. So Richard Dreyfuss has come out basically as a conservative lately. Just so we're aware. There was even a chance he might come on this show. But what's your reaction to this? I want to hear from both of you. The whole idea that Hollywood quote unquote liberals are trying to effectively compel speech is like the opposite of liberalism, right? You're not white from what I'm told. Necessarily, or at least broadcast reports do suggest that I am so you still feel this way. Well, I mean you don't really want to get into that. If you look at we all have two minutes left. Yeah, I mean, really, really briefly. If you look at people based on their skin color and not by their merit or the ability to do the job, that is probably more racist than actual racist loud races. Common sense warning here, folks. Well,
Cis White Christian Men Are Getting Hated On!
"Chris Pratt is undeniably talented. So is Morgan Wallen. Now Morgan Wallen is a country star and we were talking about this in the break. Both are what you would call in modern parlance cis white male Christians and they just, people love to hate on these two, but they are incredibly successful. I don't think Alex likes either of them. No, I do. You were looking at me like you didn't like them. No, I like them. I just, I'm just waiting to see what you're going to bring up about them. But yeah, Chris Pratt's in the news right now because of talking about more Christianity stuff. It's faith? His faith, and then Morgan wallens in the news because he just announced a few minutes ago that he was canceling the next 6 week 6 weeks of shows. Which is a massive deal. I mean, if you think the Taylor Swift tour is a big deal, will Taylor Swift didn't have 15 of the top. Actually it was the top 15 on the top 100 charts. All top 15 were Morgan Wallen dogs. What did Taylor Swift have? You can tell me on the other side of the break. I'm sure it was very impressive. But anyways, I will say, so I started this by saying that cis white Christian men are getting hated on. Chris Pratt's taking all kinds of incoming because of his faith. You say people are recasting him in Hollywood and then we start to talk about Morgan Wallen. I made the off hated comment that Morgan Wallen had the top 15 of the hundred songs on the charts when his new album released, which had like and so did Taylor Taylor. Yes, she did. Yes, she had the whole top ten. She also heard Morgan Wallen both have taken up had the longest running album in the top ten of billboard 200. She is the other equal but different. Albums. She also had ten full albums charting on the Billboard Top one last week. No. Apparently it's like Morgan V Taylor. Now, okay, so Morgan, market is a guy that okay, so he just canceled all of his shows. I can play this clip for everybody because people are getting real fired up about it. He has a vocal condition that he has injured his vocal cords. Now this became the source of some controversy because he was spotted partying with LSU swimmer. His gymnastics influencer livy Dunn, who has like 10 million followers on Instagram.
Unpacking the Royals With Alex Clark and Jobob
"A lot of topics that I want to cover here. And it was funny. When we were in the break, we were talking about what we were going to start with first. And there's a ton of options on the table. And of course, Alex Clark said, I don't want to talk about the queen's court or the king's coronation. Because I don't know anything about the British stuff. And so I immediately thought then we're starting with the coronation. Of course. So Joe bob, why don't you fill us in? So King Charles is now King Charles. He's been crowned. He was the king already. And I think this is interesting too because my wife and I were just in London for like a week like two weeks ago and everybody was prepped with the coronation. Now the coronation is happening may 6th and isn't the coronation gonna be so grand. It was funny, all of our tour guides in London were saying, well, the king will walk down this road and the king will do this and I could I couldn't help but think the entire time and maybe this just makes me a patriot American who cares. I do not understand why anybody cares so much about the king of a foreign country and this whole idea of running society as a democracy. The idea of a monarch and king, I don't get it. Well, I mean, that part of it is really not the controversial part. I mean, you and I had a disagreement in the break. Yeah. I think there's a place for the royals and the monarchy as an institution in England. I think it's good when a country holds up these institutions that have history and tradition built into them that the people know and love and look up to. The queen was the great. There's a lot of people in this audience that think the queen was this globalist shill and she was actually working with the rockefellers and all this stuff. I don't know anything about this. All I'm saying, all I'm saying is that she comported herself with dignity, respect. She honored the church and the Church of England, the tradition that was handed down to her. She was a steward of she looked at her family as something to be protected and from the British tabloid press. Now, Joe bob comes at it from a different angle. You don't like it, do you very much? Oh. You know why? 'cause I'm an American. Okay, but here's what I don't understand. And I feel like there's a piece that I'm missing here. It seems to me like the English aren't that excited about this coronation and stuff either. Is that because they all hold a grudge against him for cheating on Princess Diana forever ago, or what's the problem? I think that well, Joe bob, what's your take? No, I don't know if I'd call myself an expert or anything. But when I was there, everybody was excited about it. That was

Yeah, clearly they don't see this as being a massive downside. In fact, this might just be just the medicine. The Amazon needs to have the same kind of profitability that the pricing in. I do wonder though, Tom, 18,000 corporate jobs cut. Does that indicate a much broader wave of job cuts among the rank and file in the months to come? Yes. So I think part of what you're seeing is, so if you look at Salesforce laying off 10,000, you look at big tech company du jour with more layoffs is that to some extent there was some element of bloated headcount. So you had a very tight job market, especially in the technology area, and you had companies that ramped their headcount very significantly. Some of it was a miscalculation of demand, but I think some of it is turning out to be blooded headcount. So I think that there is a possibility that you could see some margin improvement in Amazon and some of these other big tech companies from scaling back their headcount. But I do think it is worrisome again for the current state of demand for ecommerce. This is kind of bizarre to me, Tom. Basically, this is like Tom going to the barbers and asking for a haircut and someone pulls out the tweezers. Tom, this is either a big problem and they're not dealing with it, or it's not a big problem and they're just doing something small. I don't get it.

We do mornings at 7 eastern on Bloomberg radio and Bloomberg television. This is balance of power on Bloomberg television and radio. I'm David Weston. There is a crisis going on in America and it has to do with Taylor Swift and getting tickets to her latest tour to take us through exactly what's happening. We welcome now Bloomberg's Ed ludlow. So Ed, tell me about what the problem isn't getting tickets to Taylor Swift concerts. Yeah, so earlier this week there was a pre sale for select fans to buy tickets. Ticket masters site crashed. They had 3.5 billion system requests, which is four times their previous peak, basically half of the world's population worth of data and lots of people were left disappointed. This is Taylor Swift's upcoming tour. They were going to put tickets on general release this Friday and it got scrapped. And you have swifties, which is the name for Taylor Swift fans, very disappointed. And this story has got very quickly political. Well, I actually see now just as you were speaking, I saw a headline cross here that she says is excruciating to watch the mistakes and that she says she's going to provide more opportunities for fans. But what is the government got to do with it? I mean, I don't know the only thing that the government guaranteeing I can get Taylor Swift tickets. It's about control of the market. Some groups say that ticketmaster controls 70% of the market for live tickets. The company dispute that, they say it's more like 30% according to comments by the CEO. You have key lawmakers like senator Klobuchar, congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez saying, this is not right. We need to break up live the parent company of ticketmaster. And they're basically jumping on the momentum of social media, swifties, as they're known as you now know David, have just been pouring onto social media platforms to talk about this because the system was broken in their eyes. 2 million tickets were sold, but there are millions of people who wanted to be part of this tour. They were left disappointed. Hey, Ed, this is a great report. I'm a little hurt. You didn't think I knew that Taylor Swift's fans were called swifties. No, no, in fairness, I think I just didn't learn it. Thank you so much to Bloomberg's Ed ludlow reporting on what's going on with ticketmaster and Taylor Swift.

She may have a little bad blood with new moon director Chris weitz after she hears he blocked her from being cast in the film. I mean, the craziest one of all this was to hear that Taylor swift was a huge Twilight, right? And actually I had the same agent at the time. And he said, Taylor would like to be in this movie, not because of you. But she will she will be. Someone at the cafeteria or the diner or whatever, but she just wants to be in this movie. And the hardest thing for me was to be like, the moment that Taylor Swift walks onto the screen for about 5 minutes that nobody is going to be able to process anything. You guys, Chris told the Twilight effect podcast, he regrets his decision now. Now keep in mind, this is his side of the story. We don't know what Taylor's side of the story is. But do you think it was right to keep her out of the Twilight movies? Maybe he knew she was trouble when she walked in. Oh.

That's the thing about Drake, is that he's doing something. I think maybe 'cause think about the caption about, you know, they're too soft to see how we work hard. And I think because he tends to, you know, people claim that he doesn't write his lyrics. And she doesn't, that might be a shout out to that. It could be a collaboration 'cause she has a redo album coming out. So they could be a collaboration and he's hinting to that. But I believe it is some type of hint to something. I think you're right. I think they could be working together. Maybe it's something that's upcoming and not so much something in the past. Right. Well, we know people. And we heard that it's not a collaboration. So you can take that out. I think it's just being messy. And I'm here for it. Next. Forget Taylor and Drake. The real duo we all need is lizzo and Adele. Al. Turns out these two are really tight. And lizzo told Andy Cohen, why they click. We really are super similar.

I hadn't heard from her in a minute, but I was looking at her photo because it's right outside the dressing rooms and she texted me and was like, I hope you kill it this weekend baby. And I was like, oh my God, am I gonna look at you? So she's so supportive and she really believes in me. She's with me for years. Now, on the radio Andy podcast, lizzo also confirmed that she got a man. Oh. Uh huh. You were photographed in LA in February at Craigslist with a mystery man. Are you guys still together? Wow. Yeah, whatever, yeah. You're lizzo, huge superstar in this person is whoever that person is. Is that hard being that that did a relationship? If you have the right person, no, 'cause it should be mutually supportive. Yes. No matter what that person does. By the way, that man could be the king of Abu Dhabi. And you look like it.

I love them, and I love that she's happy. But I think it's smart that she's keeping it in secret. Yeah. Because I always say, you know, keep your man hidden until that foundation's strong because you know when people come and try to shake it. You want to make sure that you can stand up and keep it right. You know what I mean? You know what? They're going to find out who he is.

As you asked earlier, Aaron, how do you think Jake Gyllenhaal feels about this? Honestly, he has shut off his radio. He has he has turned off Twitter, probably deleted all of the Internet if he can. I mean, the poor guy. It was a two month relationship. I was too much. And I swear to God, I feel like there was one paparazzi shot of them during that whole time. And it's bad and not bad enough. But he went through it. There was speculation when red came out originally, but now for this to be surface. All of these years later, she's very happily still with her man whose name is Joe. I forgot. And she was married. He's moved. He's married again, right? No. Jake is. Jake is not married. We love Jake, by the way, I also did some Googling of Jake because I listened to the album. I didn't realize that Jake's I knew Maggie was famous. I didn't know the whole family. Right. Was famous. Anyone to Colombia? I've learned all about Jake Gyllenhaal today. I guess that is the power of Taylor Swift. But I'm sure he's feeling a little ugh. I want us to die out. Yeah, and it's also like the biggest song on the album. It's the most highly anticipated. It's a ten minute long video and it's like the original with her stream of thoughts and the things that she was thinking that day when he broke up with her. It's a whole thing. There's so many Easter eggs that are gonna be in this video and references to their relationship that makes it so obvious. I don't know about you, but I don't know. I guess even if it was, I would want any song to be written about me. I mean, you've had it happen. I mean, right? Yeah, but I also that was like on a smaller scale. Like this is like it's one thing if a song is gonna be written about you, but then again, just going back to the fact that this was years ago. It was two month relationship. And now Jake Gyllenhaal is trending on Twitter when they have not been associated with one another and 5 plus years. I'm sure there's a little bit of an annoyance there where it's kind of like, okay, right. I don't need this attention right now. And he seems like very serious actor like, and even on some of the songs she was like, you know, when I was hanging out with your Friends, like they talk about the meaning of life and everything is about searching for deeper.

Some eldest favorite is carmen song number. Two which i think it. It kind of feels like it's a single. I didn't check what songs out of these album were singles. If at first. I didn't mind it too much. It sounded fine but then i noticed that every time i listen to it kept feeling like there was someone standing behind me moving stuff around or looking over my shoulder you notice. I felt like i was losing my possessions and get very specific feeling if you listen closely to that song you'll notice that there's this scratching sound that is a bit offbeat underneath the instruments and it starts at around thirty two or thirty three seconds into the song. It's a bit subtle gone in depth. A yeah i went and checked when it starts and it's a bit cell so we took me a while to consciously notice it but like i said it made me feel like there was someone in the room and it made me feel tents and it's really made me not enjoy the song and once i noticed it i thought learned to expect it and ignore it but it kept bugging me and i ended up just keeping that song every time even now when i listened to the song to try and find when that noise starts i was literally listening for it like i was looking specifically for it. It faded into the song. And i looked around because they thought my dog was crushing. The door or something. I can't listen to that song. Is this chip petty raisin like it yeah that's the equivalent of going to a restaurant riding a pace for the times or something. I don't know the maple sort of made me think of my second marriage so nothing in. What i said has anything to do with the song itself. I think it's the echo of the snare drum. Maybe borrowed you have a least favorite song like nothing stood out there. That's that's a bad sign. It's even worse than having a bad. Some you know in a way better.

Well we gotta be really sad like be sad. I'd like it felt like a very bad acting and also like the joy of having someone else in the album is to like see what the voices are together and like sort of homina but it felt like honestly like one of them was fine astound difference alike. They've never really hit the same noida. They wouldn't end on the same time they just. They never really harmonized dole and laptop alternating yet. They did that but even when they did sing at the same time one of them would like whisper it in the past and was saying it says like backing up the other person like it just. Yeah i don't know. I didn't like it at all. It will be some weird. But i agree with you. I think is weirdly agreeing with beata yet. No it's weird because he's giving like really good reasons why it should be like the worst. Pick of the set of the better one but i agree. I think as a duet. It's not really good. It's barely jewett. Yeah yeah it's kind of like if i on it but yeah i think what what appeal to me is I think the later part of song. There's when they don't think that's the best bit about. I forget sometimes when i kind of managed to suspend my cynicism or criticism than the. The song did work for me. I think the sunk sometimes works in when he does. It's kind of strong to slightly pad how bad it is because of the restrictions in current art They probably couldn't record it together. So i mentioned one of them had to record it before the other person. So that's maybe one of the reasons. Why the harmonies and it's interesting. They couldn't like act off each other. What was this recorded. It was recorded during. Yeah came out july so i think it was recorded sort of much gene exactly but yeah i i imagine. He put his vocals down before her because he landed on the bait where she was dancing around a bit and i imagine he wouldn't abandon record otherwise say they would have been but i mean that would have been the logical way to do it. I don't know why. But i kept thinking that this album is like from five to seven years ago. It's from just add. I looked up. I wanted to see whatever ends favorite songs were after. I listened to it the first time. And i didn't really like it in that wake. I was like doing a bit of research just to see. Well maybe if. I listen to the best song on the album. That'll connect with it and like the fans who really like it kind of think differently. Sorry this some that get mentioned more than others. but it's it's a big spread sorry Some people say they couldn't pick one some people go for one but then the next person will say something different. The next best news. Say something different. I'd say there's almost eight to tan ones. Sort of get mentioned quite a bit. I know the one gets mentioned quite a bit. Cardigan sometimes gets mentioned a big one loss. Great american honesty. It's quite popular mitee's as ricochet big one seven in august get mentioned same with invisible string and betty they get mentioned and then the hours do get mentioned as well as there's only two nari song that doesn't get mentioned in so it's interesting yeah is one. Yeah there is usually one that stands out. I can point at any other sons that i really didn't think but i like the the one in my ears shade. They both kind of have that single field to them. They both feel like they're going to be the bigger popular songs and i didn't really connect with those. I kind of feel like they slow the album of it. Yeah cardigan from my hearing. Over the writer on the radio that offense sorry it must be really up there Yeah i only listened to it like sometimes they sneak a holes and they have the radio on and they play category but the one i think pretty solid open up for the album. If you're having to pick what one you want. I the one is not a bad one another one i. I think i hit her. August is well aware had it. But that one's quite a popular one. I'm thinking about this album like what. What is this hour. And it's it's a singer. Songwriter album basically. So we're not. We're not going to say wow to cap the baseline on the so or can you imagine the guitar..

It is color birthday and it was a surprise album so i don't know like what a surprise. How ms but it means like she didn't promote it beforehand. I guess i don't. I don't think no one knew it's going to come. Yeah but i mean like back in the old days all out. There surprised how the releasing of an album was the surprise. Like but now surprise albums. Like you'd announced that when you release it. I guess surprise avenue would be like you're related album from like. Yeah i'm jay z and then happens to be a taylor swift out that would be around the album's cooled folklore and i think sorta marks a change from her popzette of albums to like more of a folk pop the kind of thing. It's more focus than her previous albums but then again. I haven't really listened to much of this stuff before but i did know. She's like a pop soup saw so it doesn't surprise me and apparently she started off a bit folk or maybe a bit more country. I guess so. It's it's it's kind of changed a little bit A little bit like a kid. I i was could change for raider had when we covered that one that was from mike rock to sit of more electric. Say a little bit more about. The album was won a guinness world record for the biggest opening day on spotify for an album by female artists which is great. It's seventh number one in the united states and the best selling album of twenty twenty. That's pretty big self. Sorry i mean she's pretty pretty big artist. I guess So a little bit like paul. Mccartney's recent album taylor swift didn't expect to create Twenty twenty To the cancellation of like current. Sort of touring stuff. She just quarantined a self and she watched some movies on. Wikipedia says she watched rea- window for nine hundred fifty four. La confidential from nineteen ninety seven pan's labyrinth from two thousand six. Jane ir janai.

That doesn't exist anymore. Such is rebecca nine hundred thirty eight. Daphne du maurier and the fictions in spite swift to venture beyond autobiographical style of songwriting. And yeah i mean. I don't really know those things too much. I like confidential and marriage story. But i don't really know much else if you guys notice anything that's cool but if you want to cut it short i think she was very bored and decided to make an. That's fair sorry Festival at the question. We always ask is initial thoughts like what like the first time you listen to we. Did you lock it. Have you listened to much of his stuff in the past. So did you have anything to compare it to and Yeah generally generally fist thoughts on star. Yeah sure. I haven't really listened to anything by her before this but i do have a friend who i kind of trust is music. His music who. I've heard him say few times that she's better than what you'd expect like the pretty good so i kind of wanted to be surprised by seldom do i expect it to be great but i. I really wanted to find that. I do enjoy this. That's exactly how. I felt honestly like the first time. A listen to it like nothing really took off for me i. I wasn't really impressed until maybe sunk. Six which i think is memorable and i didn't fall in love with this album by then but like it was okay like thinks picked up. I do think now that. I kind of you know after weeks of listening to this album. I think that this album kind of start slow and fix up and then it becomes kind of stronger but like only know. I thought this was okay. Like not great not bad. I don't even have to say it. But like i know that i'm not the target audience with this album. I still kind of wanted to keep an open mind. And see if i enjoy it and i don't know in a few words. I thought that the music and the album was too sweet for me. The type of atmosphere is not something i'm attracted to. I thought the music itself was a bit boring. There were a few songs that i did like and mostly the lyrics were a bit simple. I thought there were a few lines. I connected with the war felines. It's kind of took me by surprise. And i'll say i don't dislike this album at all but in the end there was only one situation in which i found that i enjoyed this settlement and that was when it was in the background while i was working. You know like when. I listen to this album while i was driving or walking the dog or anything i found it a bit boring..

It's very nice to have on. it's not challenging is very pleasant whereas sometimes like you would just put on tori and the next thing. You're like what is happening over there on the cd player. Tori is taking me somewhere. That i wasn't prepared for and this album doesn't do that. Yeah i did think. Actually the song that i would say was my favorite from. It reminded me what i realized i was thinking of. Is regina spector on The second one champagne champagne problems. I'm so glad you brought it up because that is also my favorite It is very i mean. It's also a sad song though. It's about two people who started dating in college and had like a shared group of friends and he goes to propose and she goes to break up with him on the same night Yeah whoops but it is also my favorite. Because it's one of those that there's no repeating chorus really. There's no repeating verse. It's all different as you move through telling the whole story a night. Train is also very evocative energy or energy imagery imagery energy ever. Yeah either way But marjorie you had mentioned before we got our holy taylor swift conspiracy to agendas about her.

The pitney epiphany yes. Thank you for that Epiphany it's about her potter grandma Which is very cool. I thought that was nice. Yeah yeah that was one of my favorite songs on the album. Which surprised me. Usually i go for like the kind of sad love songs and they were there. Were many to choose from. But i really thought this was very sweet. It kind of reminded me of of our grandparents I i liked that one too. Also like gold rush that one. Some people think is about harry styles really. This was my guess. I'm so glad you said that.

Know she's in a in a great relationship she's writing about it. Sounds very genuine. Is the thing you can write about things that you weren't experiencing but it sounds very well and i also would say that like it. She's talking about them. So this was my feeling and i had justin listen to it to see if he had the same feelings about it from the album. General i got this sense of like And i always think of taylor swift in terms of like younger than me. The ike the. She's talking about our from my past a little bit because i'm older That this is someone who has been through all of these things and is talking about them. Though in the way you talk about remote things things that happened a long time ago and in a way to that demonstrates i am okay. I feel like the subtitle of this album could be. I'm okay now like don't worry. Yeah yes these things happen. And i can write songs about them but i'm fine. Yeah i'm doing great so don't worry about me. Someone said it feels very much like folklore is about like what your favorite song is like. You're paying who hurt you. What has happened to you but evermore like how you heal and how you fix things and how you get closure Or how you feel better. Which i think is true. All the songs are which may be why. I like it more. It's all maybe not as upbeat on folklore but positive and uplifting Overall and she does make that reference to her man. That's my man. yes that in that first one. Yes in willow Which i really like. I wondered if that was about current. Ma'am yes current man cargo But also sounds like a cool superhero though current man electricity thing. Oh and thought about tm. Whoever is currently dating taylor swift has superpowers. They get ooh by being taylor swift current man bam. That's probably true. He he co wrote songs on. This album was never a songwriter before and she put him the last album in this one under a pseudonym co writing songs on her album So maybe you just kind of inherit those things the longer you spend time with her.
