That is a Bloomberg business flash. All right, Charlie, thank you so much. We said we're gonna stay with climate for this final hour of Bloomberg businessweek and how the world has innovating as a result. Our next guest comes courtesy of one of our technical directors here at Bloomberg radio Sebastian Escobar. Yes, we listen to everybody on our team. He read about an interesting startup that's already raised millions of dollars and helped homeowners use EVs as backup power for their homes. This is innovative. Yeah, it's called decibel and we got Mark Andre forge. The founder and CEO of the company. He's talked to us all about how homeowners can use EVs as backup power for their homes. Let's talk about by directional charging Mark Andre. It's great to have you with us. He joins us via Zoom from Montreal. So Mark, what's the problem that this is trying to solve here? I mean, obviously it's if your power goes out, right? You can use the big battery that you've got to continue to power your home. But why is this so much more challenging than just simply flipping a switch? Well, you're absolutely right. The second largest asset purchase for any family is or car. And the car sits in the driveway most of the time. And right now, California takes us Florida with hurricanes. We have a lot of blackouts. So the concept is very simple. How do you use the energy from the EV to power the home during a blackout? How are you paying for that energy? Already pay for that EV. So I want to leverage it. It's not that simple some papers. But now we need to combine the technology from EV that is still in this infancy and of course the well of regulation inside home to make it universally compatible. And this is really what we have achieved with our disabilities technology and our disabled platform. We create a universally compatible solutions that can take the energy from the EV to power your home during the back end. So is this essentially people buy generators, right? Just in case. Is this essentially kind of forward looking alternative energy generator? Is that basically how we should look at it? I think it's one of the use case. But this is a four

I mean, but it's unbelievable what project very task has uncovered. They see Gates as the second coming of Trump and so far as his family is very wealthy.

Let Us Not Forget All of Andrew Cuomo's Shameful Scandals
"Want to dive into talking about governor. Andrew cuomo's resignation. I mentioned last segment that two days ago i guest hosted for danis and it was my second segment of the show. And i remember sean. The technical director telling it to me in my ear. And i thought oh my gosh so i was. I was lucky enough to break it on air the other day and my immediate reaction was how he able to get away with this stuff. Not just the sexual assault allegations but the nursing home scandal. This we have known about this for a year and finally governor. Cuomo has no choice but to resign and the media has no choice but to report it. Some could say well the media didn't know they know that he was harassing all of these women. I don't quite buy that. I think perhaps the media did not now but it was a willful ignorance. They didn't want to know there've been rumors circulating for years about governor cuomo's conduct with women way before he became governor and there's also a lot of evidence that he's been playing dirty political games for years. I encourage all of you to go online and find out more information about the smear campaign that andrew cuomo was believed to have run on mayor. Edward coche back in the seventies when his father koch. Excuse me koch back in the seventies when his father mario cuomo was running for mayor and koch and cuomo were competing for the democratic slot for mayor and andrew. Cuomo was working at the time on his father's campaign and cauti- was believed to be gay. And it is also believed that andrew cuomo put out a horrible smear campaign in an effort to publicize that fact and discredit him. So i again. I encourage all of you to look up the slogan on the internet. It's it's terrible and and dive into that because it really it really shows the way that andrew cuomo place he plays dirty

"Our technical director editing today by Jeremy Greater. I'm Rick Fan sites with ELISA Jaffe, the company behind the major mix up at the Johnson and Johnson Vaccine plant apparently has a history of quality control citations. A B C's Andy Field, joining us on the camo news line with the latest What have we learned and he 1st 15 million doses of the vaccine. Ruined and White House, saying, though not to worry about getting those doses. Yeah, because they never get out the door. Apparently this subcontractor in Baltimore not only else produced Johnson and Johnson vaccine, but it also produces AstraZeneca backseat. I guess they get the rest of these mixed up and someone noticed that or I guess they have quality control to make sure that someone notices that and it never get out the door. Now, the White House tells us, which is interesting that this plant still doesn't have FDA approval. Which begs the question. How are they making vaccines if they don't have FDA approval, But apparently with this emergency authorization they have. It's pretty much the case for every place and they do have very strict quality controls. But the bottom line is anyone listening to this right now and is worried about the Johnson and Johnson vaccine Do not Because nothing got out of that plant. There are other plants that are making this. Johnson and Johnson says they have more than enough capacity and other places. They've added these extra contractors to basically go toe over capacity, which is what President Biden wants, so that there's so much vaccine that if there's a shipment delay, there's no problem. They'll be able to get this stuff out. The good news is for patients. None of this got out. It's not gonna get into any arms. The bad news is this company. It's not gonna have some headaches, trying to get approval for other vaccines being made when they've messed up this badly on this one. What kind of a citations if they had in the past, They've had some quality control issues. The according to the FDA they've been cited for. They fixed them. But again, this is not a good thing, And the only thing we can be reassured is The The FDA has some pretty strict controls on how this stuff gets out the door so that no one gets injected with something bad. So basically the issue was identified addressed. This is dealing with one plant. It's not dealing with the vaccine. Correct, And so they have quarantine everything that's in there going through checking it major headache for this company. I mean, this is this is a make or break deal for this company in terms of whether they stay in business or not. And now that Johnson and Johnson doesn't have as much confidence that this thing right they're gonna go to other plants to go and make sure that it doesn't get done right. In the meantime, they said, they're still On track to get all the vaccine that they've promised the U. S government out from other facilities because they have so much capacity out there to do this right now, in part because of the Defense production Act, where President Biden ordered some plants to make sure they would repurpose things to make sure that not only Johnson and Johnson, but the fighter in the modern of vaccines also get out. Is the White House concerned that people now are? Are they worried that people are going to be worried about the vaccine? Because of this? Well, no, no, not if they're if they're following the news and following the fact that this did not affect a single drop of vaccine that's going to any patient, nor will it because it was all quarantine and caught before him. So that's the good news. The other thing that the White House is doing today They are spending a lot of money, and they enlisted. Community groups, sports figures, major celebrities, and they have started these public service ads to reach into the African American community into Asian communities into underserved areas to say, Look. This is safe. It's going to save your life and life and many other lives around the country. Don't be reluctant to take this. So they're doing a major PR push right now on top of everything else that you're seeing. Make sure that people do want to get the vaccine, ABC, Sandy Field Thank you, Andy. Thank you. Listen.

"I'm Rick Fan sites are editor Jeremy Greater Painter Web is our technical director ELISA Jaffe. With the day off in the headlines, these second impeachment trial of former President Trump moving forward Senators voted in favor of proceeding today, saying they believe it's constitutional to try a president who has already left office bowing getting a boost from regulators, approval of changes it made to the troubled 737 Max jetliner. Companies, saying today that it delivered 26 new commercial planes in January, including 21 Max jets. The bad news for Boeing is that but only got four new plane orders in January, down from 90 in December. The pandemic is hammering air travel. A year after the helicopter crash that killed basketball star Kobe Bryant and eight others, including his daughter. The National Transportation Safety Board has released its findings on the tragedy. ABC News correspondent Alex Stone joins me. What did they find Alex? Well, bottom line. Rick The NTSB s saying today that the pilot made mistakes said that they should have never flown into too thick clouds while in the clouds that the pilot suffered from spatial disorientation thought he was climbing while he was really turning left and descending. And that the crash was avoidable. According to the NTSB today that had he declared it unsafe and landed or gone back to John Wayne Airport, where they started and said, You know what? We can't go into those clouds. Everybody would be alive today. This is Robert Sumwalt, the chair of the NTSB opportunities along the way to have reversed the course and prevented this crash by simply landing and that spatial disorientation of phenomenon that effects pilots who really affects everybody, even experienced violets like ours as a buy in this pilot 15 years of flying around l A 85 100 hours in the chopper and The NTSB doctors today, Rex saying that comes in our inner ear and when we don't have visual cues or interfere, controlling balance in other down concave, a full sense of orientation, and that Islands can believe that they're gaining altitude when they're really dropping. They call it in her ear illusions, and that's what they think happened here. I can't believe that the aircraft is straight and level when it is not so there was no mechanical problem. The engines were working fine. The NTS believes that there may have been self imposed pressure on to buy ended to keep going. Because it was Kobe Bryant on board and not wanting to upset him. They say that Bryant didn't put any pressure on the pilot and the owner of the chopper didn't but they feel like when there is a celebrity client that often times Pilots who put the pressure on themselves to go ahead and get it done. But bottom line. They say that it was the pilot who was not equipped, was not trained to fly in what they call I have our instrument. Flight rules into those clouds became disoriented, disoriented and then they hit the ground. Now such a tragedy of being one of the first things they teach you in Flight school is about disorientation in clouds. So what's next? Alex is is their court action proceeding or anything else that could happen against the helicopter service. Well, First of all, there were recommendations that were made today by the NTSB and the FAA is already responding today. The recommendations include simulator time and training specifically on and mandated On spatial disorientation. The FAA today responding, saying they already offered classes or not mandatory, but they offer classes on it and they want flight recorder is the NTSB does on helicopters? The NTSB is saying that even on these types That don't require it right now. The FAA responding today, saying that it will look into that whether all helicopters release those carrying passengers would need to have a flight data recorder on board to help out investigations like this, but there are lawsuits that have already been filed. The Bryant family is suing the state of the pilot suing the helicopter company for negligence and wrongful death. There are lawsuits from the other families involved against the helicopter company. Ryan family suing the L. A County Sheriff's Department for photos of the crash site that were being passed around among deputies who did not need to see them. There are a number of lawsuits that have now been filed. They're beginning to move forward at this point. All right, thanks for the update. That's a BCS Alex Stone in Los Angeles coming up on 5 20..

"With a day off our technical director is painter Web and in the headlines. Denis McDonough will now run the Department of Veterans Affairs. The Senate voted to confirm him as V. A secretary Today, McDonough was White House chief of staff and a deputy national security advisor. During the Obama administration Governor Inslee signing an unemployment insurance bill to help businesses and workers affected by that pandemic. It will increase the minimum weekly benefit for unemployed workers starting in July and will prevent a dramatic increase in unemployment taxes paid by businesses. Well, it starts tomorrow. The second impeachment trial of Donald Trump begins a 10 A.m. Seattle time. ABC News Washington correspondent Andy Field joins us in both sides have agreed to the framework of the trial, Andy so Step us through tomorrow's proceedings. What will coma listeners here on day one? It's gonna sound like you heard this movie before, because you did. It was last week that the Senate had a very long debate on whether this was even constitutional. Well, for some reason they going to do that again tomorrow. So the actual Trial in the arguments are not going to happen tomorrow. They're going tol I'll be sworn in and start the debate at 1 P.m. eastern time tomorrow. And when they do that, they're not gonna talk about any of the facts of the case. You actually going to listen to a debate for four hours over whether this is constitutional? Of course they did that already. It's likely to be the same outcome, which is they won't get a majority of the votes to do that. I think 45. Republicans. The last time said it was unconstitutional and then the actual arguments will begin on Wednesday at noon, when the Democratic managers will have 16 hours over two days to make their case. Still not clear if they're going to have witnesses That hasn't been decided yet. Certainly, they invited the president to be a witness in his own trial. He declined. Uh, it's unlikely they'll subpoena him, but they may have other witnesses. Certainly they're going to show a lot of video and interviews with people who all many of them have been arrested, and most of them have said the reason they came up there was that the president told him. Come up there and, as the president said in his speech, fight like hell for this election. Former president's lawyers today, calling this nothing more than political theater. No surprise with that kind of comment. But do they have a point now? Given a dozen appears? You mentioned that there's enough votes Pierre, perhaps even convict Trump. Well, you could say that probably pretty much any any impeachment with going all the way back to Bill Clinton or the last impeachment for President Trump. It doesn't mean that the Democrats and some Republicans voted for this. Don't believe that there is a reason to do this, and they say that he incited insurrection. Which is about as far from keeping your oath of office is as you can possibly go, if indeed that is true. And so they're saying that the reason they're doing this is to I would not give any president in the future and incentive to say Well, I only have a week or so left in office. I could do whatever I want. And it doesn't matter because once I'm out of office, you can't do anything. On the other argument that the president's lawyers saying that it's unconstitutional to impeach him out of office. They didn't impeach him when he was out of office. He was still in office when the impeachment articles came out in the house, and in fact they could have hold held the trial the next day. Were it not for Republicans controlling the Senate who said they weren't going to do that until he was out of office? So His reason for this happening after he's out of office lays in the hands of the Republicans who are in control of the Senate. Full coverage here on CO Moh news of the impeachment trial.

I Donald John Trump do solemnly swear in his first act as President Donald Trump delivered the darkest and most ominous inaugural address in American history. This American carnage stops right here and stops right now. Courage would come And it would be brought on in large measure by Trump himself. You'll never take back our country with weakness.

"technical director" Discussed on WTMJ 620
"Raw, real and authentic conversations. This is the truth on WTMJ. I was talking about when we were going to rise and grind. And it was closed. And we wanted to talk about black businesses, and we had this huge conversation. We also went to eat and we talked to another black businessman that was black owned and we went to shopping, eat with him, and he was talking about Having your things together, becoming organized and having your books together. Right, Right? Yeah. I think it was heavenly barbecue. Yeah, and it was on the on the East side. And he was he was He was great at answering our questions because I think what the main issue is with black businesses is that we need to have our books together in order to get Um, the relief packages that they do have for cold in 19. Yeah, because a lot of blood you know, during Lot of blacks. When it comes to paying taxes and getting these things done financial literacy. Sometimes there's a lack of that. And now that we have these covert 19 packages coming out If you don't keep your good books, you're not gonna get any benefit from these packages. Right, right. Because you have to have your taxes in order. You have to have, um certain financial history to show what you were, You know, accumulating from your net from last year, so you're not gonna be able to show What money is you actually need? If you're doing everything by cash, right? I was talking to a black business owner. Yesterday She sails hair. And so she sails here. And she, Oliver vendors come from China. They come and they, you know, she meet him at his hair shows. And then when she does business, he does business by by cash. So if you're doing business by cash And let's say you're not actually putting exactly what you make. Um, for a year. You can't build some type of, you know, seek that shows to your you know, financial institution that you're making this kind of money, which, essentially, you have to, of course, reach out to the to the government and asked him for relief package. You can't show any of these things, and so With black business is one thing that we have to do. We have to start building relationships with our banks and the way that we do that it starts to make sure that we're doing everything by the book. So that we can have something to show for it and we can get the relief that we need. And a lot of people, you know when they talk about financial literacy, and that that's not even being taught. A lot of these things are not even being taught were talked to actually work for somebody, but not actually create our own businesses, and you have your own business. Can you tell you correct? Can you tell us about it a little bit. I kind of gave a little bit of a tease. But like I said, let us know about ambitious media. Okay, So, yes. So I opened up a business card. Humble, ambitious media. But before that I had a production company, which I still do have a production company called Professional Audio Visual, which is in Las Vegas, opened up a production company from being an entrepreneur from being a freelancer in the production field. So I started as the you know, as a production man's remote upto a technical director. I build a bunch of clients. In the industry, and we produced live events for many of some of your favorite shows in Las Vegas and in In the United States. And so one of the things that I learned immediately is that of course, I could definitely scale my books for lack of better word. But the problem with that is that you have these issues where you don't have the ability To show what you're making. But you don't have the ability. So your growth either. If you do your book that correct ways, and you can show you grope, you can understand your growth. Then you can go in shop. Or that loan that you might need from, you know, s B A. Or maybe you can stop for you know that building that you want and you can show your funds because there's gonna be a point in time where you're gonna upgrade and you want to do things for the business and you want to get along, But you have to show those things. And so we come from a community that I can go and drive down the street right now. And look at a check cashing place and its 20 people in line at the check cashing place and most of the times. They are black people, and they're in our communities and next to the chicken spot. And you know, that's where we're losing. All of our financial literacy is because if you would just open up in account if you would get a certified credit card to build your credit back up, these things are attainable so that you can start building some wealth because the only way that we're going to change our communities period is through well. Exactly. And you have to do that One family at a time. What are you leaving your kids? Are you leaving them Anything? When? If you died today, Do you have, um, a life insurance policy, or do you have to do a go fund me to get the funeral car? Most times we doing Make most times we doing go fund me. Right, right. And so there's systems that are set up in that financial literacy. You don't want to leave. Um, uh, hardship when something happens to you. You want to leave a legacy? We have to start doing that, you know, in our black businesses so that we can succeed and we can have our own. We need our own and a lot of black people were taught not to deal with the government as far as paying taxes. That's because we're unfamiliar with paying tax taxes being in a different tax bracket, especially coming from poor neighborhoods, and we're talked to avoid that because you know, we don't want to deal with that extra. So we try to take cut corners and we don't want Uncle Sam to take our money and this and that, but is actually a method to that that we can write off things. And in his ways to come back some of that, uh Uncle Sam taking half for 47% of whatever there's ways to deal with that. Almost Evelyn. I mean, we see people want me when you look even at our current president. Now you see how many times he's filed for bankruptcy? That doesn't mean that he's bankrupt, right? It means that his company that he was working for it and make any money, so he was able to file chapter 11 chapter 13 and those things are great to do when you're not doing well at a business, but it also gives you that leverage. Have your own. You know, it doesn't. It doesn't actually touch. You know your personal finances. It turned. It hurts the business and you can start up a new business. I mean, we live in in the United States, where a lot of times Businesses get more right than humans gives right exactly And so you gotta you gotta make sure that just set up in that correct way and so back to what you were saying. We're humble, ambitious media. I decided to open up a film company here in my city, Milwaukee, where I grew up in. And the reason why I decided to open it up because first of all was gonna be a black business. But it's also about you know, telling the community exactly was going on in our impoverished areas and opening up a film companies something that's black. That's for us, you know, and by us But it also helps in that scenario, where I'm able to sell what I need for the documentary that we do, and your first documentary actually did something amazing. They actually went to Amazon Prime It's on Amazon Prime right now. You could They can actually going to Amazon Prime and watch the walking in pain right now. Exactly And the blessing behind that is that we were actually able to get on a huge platform like that, and the things that we have any more campaign is talking about what? What? The repercussions of covert 19 and what actually happened to our black businesses and how we can change. Um Are our future when it comes to, um, helping the community understanding what we've been given and working together because there's a lot of There's a lot of knowledge on the documentary that we put and we actually put you know one of the greatest people. Cheryl McMurtry. She has her own financial institution is definitely on there is well, and she shows people how to get credit. How to obtain credit how to go and find out on how to get their taxes together and all of those things, and that's those are great resource is and there's nobody is gonna help you like people that have been through your stroke. That's right. I've been through that same exact struggle. And I'm a color and I've been trying to, you know, get ahead. And Mike, There's a lot of things that can help you in that in that form and Milwaukee and pain, Doctor, I'm going check it out. And there's some great resource is on the website is well, like I said, Like I said, I appreciate my brother now, you know, we Ah, lot of people don't you know? Don't understand. You know, we've we've We've been away from each other for a long time. And forced to come back together after all these years by me moving away to Iowa, Minnesota, you move on the way to Vegas. Now we get to chance to come and try to help our city door in this point in time. And I really appreciate that because I needed my brother back..

Jeremy Greater ELISA Jaffe has the day off in headlines atop Georgia Elections official is urging voters not to let anyone get in their way of casting a ballot tomorrow. Gabriel Sterling spoke hours before polls open for the critical Senate runoff races. He expects high turnout but also is prepared for possible threats. King County plans to buy as many as a dozen hotels to permanently house hundreds of homeless people and provide them with services. Washington State is still in phase one A of the covert 19 vaccination rollout. Health care workers and those in long term care facilities are eligible for those shots and later this week, we should learn who else can get in line for their first doses. But nationwide, the expansion of the vaccination process is causing some serious headaches and combos. Taylor van Size has more with Brittany Shamus from The Washington Post. The image at the top of your report is pretty stunning, and it looks like something you would see on black Friday. You know, people bundled up in lawn chairs on a sidewalk. But what's happening there? Yeah, You know, some of the counties in Florida decided to make the vaccine available on a first come first served basis, and people actually lined up and brought chairs and blankets and camped out like you mentioned a zip. It was black Friday or a big concert actually spent the night Outside of those places where the vaccine was being distributed, So it's it's essentially first come first serve for for an age group that doesn't necessarily do so well with, you know, just standing or sitting on the sidewalk for hours at a time, right? Yeah, and you know, and it is mostly seniors that are out there waiting. So I think there was some concern about that. You know the fact that there Uh, bundling up and spending the night overnight. So in Florida, and I understand nationwide, it's kind of you know, County by county state by state on how all of this runs out. But is there not guidance from the CDC, FDA Operation works Peter or any other agency on how to schedule the vaccine roll out so you don't run into these, You know black Friday type lines from what I understand they gave guidance on who should receive priority in getting the vaccine, But they kind of left the distribution up to the states and the counties to handle. So the states would say these are the places that should get doses and then it essentially was left to those places. You know the counties and the hospitals. See, you know, health systems, too. Kind of come up with their own plan on how to actually get it out to people and I've seen on Twitter people, at least in the UK they post screenshots of the text message they get from their health agency and like a like a restaurant reservation. L. Here's your time. Tell us if you can't make it. But what's the strategy here in the states? And what what kind of resource is do? We all need to be plugged into before we actually Get a chance to get our shot, so it really comes down to where you live. There's been a huge range in how this information is being communicated. There are places where the health Department is kind of listing information and sign up sheets on Facebook. Sometimes without a lot of events notice going out about that. There are places that are doing kind of what you talked about where you can get onto a list and get a text message that tells you where to go When you go. That's something that I think New Mexico is doing. But in other places they haven't said how they're going to do this once they expand the vaccine beyond, um, you know, first priority health care workers so It's almost a matter of calling your local health department in trying to figure out what their plans are. And the expansion is coming. You know, like we were talking about is it getting better? You know is the production there is are. The resource is going to eventually catch up or is this is this Ah train wreck that we're about to watch? You know, I think that question. I think the hope is certainly that things are going to kind of get ironed out as a zoo. We go along here, but there is no one at a time that's really important and So the federal government is assuring people that this is going tol start going more smoothly that you know they're going to offer support and resources to states. Um and I think at the state level and at the local level you're seeing people saying, you know, I have patients. We're gonna We're gonna sort this out, but it's important that that happens soon here.

Come was her boys. Bob joins us now, and he's written about that for checkbook dot org's and so what are the critics saying Herb? First of all, Lisa. We're talking about a lot of money here, According to the Consumer Federation of America, Auto Insurance companies earned tens of billions of dollars in what CF A calls quote covert windfall profits. Now, insurance companies, as you know, boast about their voluntary pandemic relief, and they did receive a lot of positive media coverage early in the process for providing automatic rebates or credits. I talked about that when things first started, but the pandemic is far from over, and many of us are still not driving as much as we used to, and they're making a lot of money off of that. Do anything with this initial burst of goodwill? Well, not a whole lot and not nearly enough to consumer groups say. U S. PIRG looked at the data for the 10 largest auto insurers in all 50 States and the District of Columbia. They found that regardless of how much each company profited, most insurers did not give back more than half of one month's premium here. The numbers on Lee 18 out of 71 company surveyed returned at least half of one month's premium on Lee eight. Returned at least one month's premium. Geico and some other big companies still offer discounts. But drivers only get those benefits if they renew their policies. And if you don't even provide any relief unless the customer specifically request help, the consumer groups say, that's just not enough. So if you look at that survey, Herb does any company really stand out from the crowd?

It also is encouraging consumers who plan to switch companies to consider that information in the report as they decided shop around, and they're urging anyone who's unhappy about all those what they got back from the insurance companies to call state lawmakers to push for state mandated auto insurance rebates.

The First American To Play For Barcelona
"Two Weekends Ago Nineteen Year Old Sergio Desk became the first American to play for one of the world's biggest soccer clubs. The new. Number, two for Barcelona Savino desk off the bench here today. Today the FX Palton Oreo on desks rapid rise and why the young star has chosen to play for the US instead of his birth country of Holland. showed him their vision for what he was going to be in the future they believed in him and he hadn't seen anything from Holland until he broke into the first team that I act. So I think there is a sign of Sergio recognizing wind people believe in him in when people give him the support to be successful. From in the athletic, I'm under skelter and I'm Davidson, it's Friday October sixteen, and this is the lead. It felt like something great was happening. There is something about the emotion. For. The past because. that. This isn't a story. View the. It stays with you. So. Paul how would you describe the way that Sergio plays? Well, I would say he's definitely more of the modern fullback that we see in today's game. Is An attacking player first and foremost. DSP little slow to react to. That very quick very good one on one defender, but his strongest traits are pushing forward. With the ball crossings desk. Space he's not afraid to be creative. He's not afraid to try different things. Back so Yeah he he plays with the mindset of attacking player who is looking to create goals. And get a sense of the hype around surging your desk. How good is this dude expected to be? Yeah I mean I think there are a lot of hopes for what he can be you know Barcelona spending twenty, five, million euros to sign him that puts a a heavy amount of expectation on Sergio Desk I mean this is not a taking a flyer on a guy paying five million euros form and hoping he works out and develops know when that kind of money is being spent. The expectation is that you come in and you contribute right away. And in the case of Sergio that means producing assists, it means holding your own in the Champions League and I think there is a lot of belief that he can be that type of player I mean I think there's going to be a huge spotlight on that club this year because it could potentially be Messier's final season at Barcelona, and so the hope that club is that they can win Champions League maybe do something to convince messy to stay and that's what you're walking into. If you're Sergio Desk and Paul, what's your sense of Sergio personality what's he like he comes across as kind of a quiet kid? I believed in myself. So that's like the reason I get focused and I played really well and this you know he. Is Very Smart. He certainly is not afraid to Kinda give his analysis of his teams and where he fits in the and the last two minutes I just made a unbelievable mistake and that's What I learned from it. But. What's interesting is when you talk to other people about him, what's he like kind of away from the media spotlight were you probably get a better idea of his personality? It seems like he is. I guess the best way to put as maybe like an interesting dude, like he you know he kind of goes to the beat of his own drum. He's got a kind of a bright personality and we're starting to see little bits of that I think as he grows comfortable with the spotlight that's on him. Now, we'll you've been digging into Sergio rise to stardom including speaking with some of his former youth coaches in the Netherlands. Tell us a little about the path he's followed. Well, he was signed with his academy from a local club. At. Quite a young age and I think what's interesting is At I xe the expectation when you go to a club like that and you go into an academy like that is immediately, how is he gonNA fit in as a professional and I think there were some concerns about whether or not Sergio had the discipline to succeed. As a professional you saw that topic come up with a number of his youth coaches at I you. Was He going to take things seriously enough. Well, what were some of the things that he was doing that we're raising red flags among some of these youth coaches? Well, they vocalise some of them and they didn't they hinted at others. There's little things like Sergio not showing up to school. Where was his focus and and having to sit down and have talks about professionalism and you can interpret it however many ways you want is showing up the training on time is he going and doing all the individual work that needs to be done mainly they wanted him to understand that you know. Yes, football is fun. Yes. There is the enjoyment part of it right but. If, you're going to make it at a club like I asked at a certain point you have to start treating it like a job as well, and for as much as some coaches were giving him those red flags there were also coaches who were saying, no, this kid has it. He has something and what you what you need to interpret is, yes, his personality might be. A little different. He might not fit perfectly in the box that you want, but he wants to be successful. He wants to get better and those are the coaches that recognize that in him and worked to kind of harness it, and once that happened once there was a little bit of belief behind Sergio Dust that self-motivation has has led him to a really quick sent from. The U Twenty World Cup into access first team, and then a year later into the senior national team for the US and onto Barcelona. So break this down for us. Paul Sergio grew up in the Netherlands. But he's been playing with US national teams. How exactly has that worked? So Sergio comes from a military US military family his father was a soldier who was stationed overseas. As Mother's Dutch and so he was born in Holland and and was raised there and even the Dutch national team he never got an invite to the youth national teams in Holland every time before the less round, the real real influence I didn't make you know and. Then, I was like. And he was discovered by the US soccer on accident, a US youth national team coach Dave Vandenberg, a former player, and he reached out to his club actually about another player. Another American at I ax to check in and he said as as you tend to do in scouting or journalism. Hey are there any other players I should be aware of and to coach that the actually we have another player here with American passport is name, Mr Gino, desk, and then My Dad told me like you also have American best and people saying to my dad so he can also play for the American. So when they brought through genius destined to camp, they were watching very closely not just his soccer ability but how would he mesh with the group and they said it took just one training session to see the quality that Sergio desk had. But what they were really happy with was how quickly he bonded with the Group of players and they felt like he really gained a lot from the group in connecting to his American. Identity I felt home over there a little bit because they I mean in the national team because they helped me all the time and they give me chances. This. That's the main thing I guess I would say also I think it's worth noting that the connection between us soccer at the time general manager now technical director Ernie Stewart and Sergio Desks Ernie Stewart likes or. Has a father who is in the military a Dutch mother grew up in Holland and when the US was trying to finalize Gino desks international recruitment, Ernie Stewart and Gregg Berhalter flew to Holland sat with Sergio and his father had a meal watched her play Champions League and spoke about their vision and I think it probably helped Sergio desk to see somebody who grew up very similar to him very similar background who played in multiple world cups more than one hundred caps for the US national team and Through seeing Ernie Stewart's accomplishments saw what he could accomplish with the US i. felt like my feelings were telling me like. My heart told me US wants the best option for you. It's not like. That I don't like the Netherlands. But yeah. In life you have to make decisions on. It's easy. You know. Also, we should note that that loyalty that, US, national team showed him, and that belief in the positive reinforcement he was getting with the US and being to Seventeen World Cup team u twenty. World Cup team led him to choose the United States senior national team overhaul, and which was recruiting and Windsor Genius talked about that decision. He talked about the fact that he had been a part of the teams plan for a long time. They had showed him their vision for what he was going to be in the future they believed in him and he hadn't seen anything from Holland until he broke into the first team and. So I think. There is again a sign of Sergio recognizing when people believe in him and when people give him the support to be successful.
Building an Enterprise AI Adoption Roadmap - with Ron Bodkin
"So Ron glad to hear on the program. It's a real pleasure to have joining US pleasure to be here. Dan Thanks for having me course given your relatively lengthy background, not just academically, but in the entrepreneurial world in various businesses now, obviously with Google in working with big big enterprises, you got I think a multifaceted take on this question. So I'm curious as to how you answer you will we look at big enterprises that are not used to doing. But they they know this is you know GonNa be par for the course moving forward. They're often asking the question why should we be focusing know how do we identify the opportunity space that are GonNa be leveraged points and make a difference for us how do you to think about that question? Yeah. Well, I think enterprises need to be thinking about a portfolio approached the either going to use that there's a spectrum between on one side you prebuilt ai solutions that might be available in south application or extend US asset allocation that give quick wins but are not highly differentiated. They become table stakes in an industry somewhere in between is use of. Smart building blocks whether prepackaged models or things like auto Amal that that AI models be extended for this particular data and needs. But that fundamentally the I is still prepackaged in component that can be brought into a custom application and then on the other extreme is is more highly differentiated custom uses of Ai, and of course, the ladder tend to be higher risk in higher reward, but I would say that in almost any. Industry enterprises need to be thinking about how do they build that portfolio and how did they build capability in all three buckets as well as how do they have the governance to understand what are the things that they ought to do any one of those as well as the wisdom, and which really comes down to the experience leadership to know what are the things that they shouldn't shouldn't be working on so that's the macro. that. You know a lot of times what you see I think what's often under appreciated is the big talent gap that I see for executing ai is really experienced leaders that have been through multiple applications of the Technology Sarah. Like, just like if you have smart Grad students in academia, they rely on a professor with good instincts to coach them. The students often have the best hands on skills they need that experience leadership and the same thing applies in the enterprise right that the leaders who've been through cycles and have good instincts and coach people on what's going to work and identify the common pitfalls are critical right? So so I think in that case, there's factors that are clearly important right like standing. The state of the data and is there data available cannot be collected you have policies whether it be legally or according to your. Company's principles around whether data can and should be used for a given approach to machine learning. Sometimes, it's about a level of creativity around how can you structure or something as a problem that will actually be solvable today's machine learning techniques. And also super important. A lot of times I. See is not enough of an emphasis early on how would you actually develop confidence and deploy this right? There's I've seen so many efforts early stages in companies where they think about doing data science and they come up with a study that says, we think there's promise here and they don't know how to. Structure a task than how to operationalize it where they don't have the priority, right? Maybe one part of the business wants to move forward but then you know the operational system owner throws a flag and says, no, we can't do that because it's too risky or it's not aligned with our road map right. So beginning with the end in mind and knowing like, how would you even experiment live to task? Something is critical. Yeah. So many considerations here on the throne. These are all really good. I'M GONNA poke into a few of these and get more ideas from us that works. Okay. Session are. So you're talking about this portfolio approach I mean I can't concur enough on the fact that you know experience leadership would be the goal. The fact of the matter is not every city is silicon valley and so in. In your random health insurance company, how many people have seen ai come to life is very few. We think about it as leaders who have an understanding broadly of what I does and how it works. You talked about that a rough tertiary understanding of the use case landscape. What's realistic? What's obviously what's realistic and then thirdly some fundamental understanding basic terminology so that they don't get lost not to be technical but understand even just that level of understanding is exceedingly rare. Exceedingly rare. How do we get over that hurdle in your mind because we can't just have a guy like you have conversations with leadership teams all day long just kind of gradually get them up to snuff. What do you think it's GonNa take to to make that education gap get closed because I think we really need that I. Yeah. Absolutely true I. Think over time as we continue to see more deployments of AI in a more advanced machine learning capabilities that knowledge is expanding right the new graduates with machine learning who don't have experienced. Spend a few years working and gaining that experience it start to get more of the wisdom in the short term what I see doing as you know, combination of bringing Google expertise were experienced people in the Google team can work with customers and coach and mentor them. But also one of the things that we do really well in Google is is we work with a lot of. Services Partners and we focus more on do they have that level of expertise? Right? So that can be specialist boutiques of maybe a few hundred people that have deep expertise to provide that coaching and guidance, or it could be larger consultancies that have built the practice in an area. Where they can bring that. So I think always a lot of it is enterprises. Need help right and hiring good consulting to enable success is important when it's a new area and there's gaps in open. Of course, it has to be complemented with a hiring strategy, but it's a lot easier to scale entertaining strategy. It's a lot easier to scale on some success when you starting

The Surprising Connection Between the VW Golf and the DeLorean
"There's a very solid chance that Georgia Jaro is the greatest car designer of all time. His genius was in his ability to combine amazing artistic creativity with practical engineering know how his designs are futuristic even fifty years later. But when he drew them, they weren't just concepts. They were practical blueprints. WHO's measurements were strictly proportioned to be something. A driver could actually use that combination of artistic innovation and practicality made Jaro one of the. Most bankable designers of the seventies and eighties all told his decades long career. He designed over two hundred cars totaling over sixty million in sales sixty million units. You've almost definitely ridden or driven a car that Gerardo originally designed I always confused by that sixty million because I was like that could be just the mark one Gulf in one year. That's like, yeah, that's the mark one golf if they sold them for sixty dollars. Yeah like not even they sold them for like three like. Yeah, yes. Sixty million units. That's nuts. That's like conservatively. A. Like a Billion Dollars Oh like billions I'd probably say more than that. Yeah. Long Story Short to jar continues to have a massive influence on automotive design but who influenced to Jaro? Born in one, thousand, nine, hundred, thirty, eight he couldn't come from a long line of car designers because cars hadn't been around for that long. Instead his father grandfather and great-grandfather were all artists who specialized in painting elaborate murals and frescos in the churches and palaces of Italy. Naturally Young Georgetta himself wanted to follow the family tradition and be a painter himself. However, real life intervened in the depressed post World War Two economy of Italy Mario Jer. Father recognized his son's artistic talent but wanted to make sure Jetta learned practical applications for his skills. Italy was no longer a country of churches and palaces that needed painting after centuries of tradition it was now being pushed into modernity by global forces of change. So as a teenager Ger, jetta was sent sixty miles north from Garesh CEO father's town to the city of Turin to study technical drawing and costume design. Strange Mix. Drafting table on one side of the room. One of those cool. Sewing Mannequins on the other yet no head no arms no legs just that torso the bus. All of his costumes look like little cars. For centuries, terrain has been a major cultural hub of Italy with centuries of painters opera, an architecture that tradition of creativity was alive and well in the nineteen fifties when Georgetta arrived to the city. It must have been an incredibly inspiring place for a brilliant teenage artist to be sent to study. Terrain also happened to be the home of the country's automotive industry which had thrived in the early twentieth century but had been knocked on its by World War Two with scoreboard alert Italy Kinda lost most importantly though Fiat was based in Teheran Fiat was the General Motors of. And as time went on, it acquired. So many of its competitors that a couple of decades later Fiat was practically the Italian auto industry. Have you guys ever seen the test track? They have on top of the Fiat factory yet so cool it's so cool. So much of success is simply being in the right place at the right time and for a young designer to Rin of the nineteen fifties was exactly that time and place by then the Italian economy was picking up and car manufacturing was a vital ingredient to the recovery. Meanwhile, Jaro was studying at art school during the day and studying technical design at night among the things he was drawing were cars and one fateful day jar sketches crossed the desk of Dante Giacosa Fiat's technical director. GIACOSA was the designer of the Fiat Five, hundred, a compact city car that would sell nearly four million units and cement Fiat's postwar dominance. He was impressed enough to bring Jaro, who had no work experience to that point on board as a junior designer at the age of seventeen. That's a gamble I mean that's. Amazing. What kind of drawings were you guys doing at seventeen? I actually had this cool skull that I was really cultivating through high school I was doing skull. I would draw zero. Skull. And the Greg Logo. Nice that's all you need. So we would probably work at We'd probably be doing designs for Spencer's sounds like. A. Jarrah started at Fiat during a golden age of the Italian auto and a big reason for the industry success was the increasing collaboration between the engineers and designers.
$600 A Week Unemployment Benefits End Tomorrow
"You know that thing where you know something bad is coming and your senses just kind of start going in slow motion, but you can't really do anything about it.

She had lots of work lined up. Then cove nineteen hit in mid March, and the cancellation started that when people would contact out. I don't think there's going to be an sat act and with money being so tight I would hate for you to waste your money for incomes down from about one thousand a week to less than two hundred hundred, and as a solo business owner. She wasn't sure where to turn it. Never really clear what I'm able to apply for, so I started with PPO. She didn't get one, but she did. Get unemployment through the federal program that opens up benefits to independent contractors and GIG workers. She's received about two thousand dollars. That kind of money is a godsend in this pandemic shocked economy says Heidi Sheer Holtz at the economic policy. Institute it's been absolutely essential. Ten million or more people who wouldn't ordinarily qualify for state benefits are getting them now. Now the Federal Government picking up the TAB and adding six hundred dollars a week, but that's about to run out rear talking about a pretty mammoth drop in income, if the six hundred dollars to expire fire, take the example of Austin Texas Theatrical Technical Directors Crawford. He's been able to make it through so far unemployment, but when the extra six hundred from the feds disappears I don't know yeah that Levy at four hundred a month with Texas unemployment benefits, which is impossible to live on.

What does the future of sports look like?
"Do you remember the night that coveted nineteen got serious and North America? It was early March. Donald Trump gave an oval office address to America about the new corona virus. At the same time Tom Hanks announced he'd tested positive. And meanwhile a basketball team was being pulled off the four. Utah's no longer on the floor. The thunder no longer on its bench. The officials have gone back to walk through fans here in the arena. I don't know what's going on. We don't know what's going on has been postponed also this astounding and unprecedented story continues to evolve the NBA is suspending the season. I say that understand. Now this is gonNA sound stupid. But we'll all that was going on. I was watching it happen. I was drafting a fantasy baseball team for the upcoming season. And now because I can't bear to turn them off I get notifications every week. Reminding me to set that fantasy teams lineups. There are no lineups. Baseball is a fantasy right now. There are no sports and beyond my stupid fake team even beyond all our collective excitement about things like watching the Toronto Raptors. Try to repeat. The absence of sports has an impact. There are hundreds of thousands of people who make a living directly or indirectly from those games all work but also on a more psychological level and this age of streaming and on demand and specialized curated playlists live. Sports are one of the very few things left that millions of people experienced together at the same time and the absence of that has an impact to a sports. World hasn't stopped. It's actually oddly busier than ever. Just in very different ways. They're huge changes coming to these games. Some of them will be temporary but some of them will be permanent. And someday when you watch a game on TV or go to a game in person or even if you don't give a crap about sports if you find downtown in a big city on a game notice those changes. When will that actually happen? And what do they look like? Nobody knows at least not yet. But we will talk to someone who has been working on finding out as soon as claire catches us up on what you need to know right now. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. Says the government will have more funding and an expanded job placement program for? Post secondary students who are struggling to find work. He says all the programs introduced for students will add up to about nine billion dollars.

He is also the CO host of writer's Block on Sports Net five ninety fan in in Toronto and he is also the CO host of a new podcast called sports on Fos sports podcast much and a pandemic with no sports. Hello Richard why? Don't you start as somebody who's just completely immersed in the world of Sports By telling me what you've learned about sports since they've vanished. Well that's a good question. I think first and foremost it just re emphasizes the importance of the escapism in our lives. It's not to say that prior to covert nineteen. We didn't recognize and understand how important sports is. But I think it's sort of human nature that when you lose something that you love when you lose something that is very close to you it really reinforces in reminds you just how much you've missed it. The interesting thing about this so far is that the literal time it's been gone isn't long. I mean we haven't been a year away from sports. We haven't been five years away from sports. You know depending on sort of your locale or what your sport is. We're looking under two months still but it feels longer. That's kind of the interesting thing with this. That it feels like we've been missing all the stuff for such a long time and it reinforces just how important and you know how how impactful it is all our lives and no matter what your sport is. The likelihood is it impacts you in some form or matter on a daily basis whether you're watching the live event where you're reading about the Levin Bet. Whether your you know on facebook or twitter instagram talking tweeting or posting about the lot. Then so I think that's for me. What the absence of sports is Is reinforced is just how central a figure. It is in in so many lives were. Yeah they were Sports are so integrated into kind of the rhythm of our daily life. And I'm not just talking about you know you. As a as a sports journalist myself as a sports fan but Just the way kind of life ebbs and flows are a constant and. I guess what I want to know is what happens in that billion billion dollar industry when all of a sudden there's a huge vacuum and there's just nothing well a lot happens And it really depends on what area you want to focus on. You know for a the business part of the industry you're seeing furloughs layoffs and tournaments and or jobs that will never come back. Rogers Rogers Cup just announced. It's cancelled and tennis. Canada just furloughed all sorts of people. And it's their intention to bring people back but you just don't know you don't know what the what the future holds think about all the teams that Think about all the people who work either for a sports team and just think about like well the vice president or the public relations person or the or the player but all the jobs that are associated around sports the bars and the restaurants that do business on game days people who Who Work in the businesses in the neighborhood outside of ballparks vendors who provide sports teams will whatever they provide so the reason. It's a six billion dollar businesses. Because there's so many ancillary parts connected to it so very few people are not impacted by it at least culturally or psychically. But then there are millions of people who are literally economically impacted by it and those are the ones. I think about because the reality is all the jobs. Don't come back you know. My Hope. Is that most do? But I'm a realist to know that all won't what have we learned about? Who's getting taken care of an? Who's not since this has begun in the sports world. You know I've seen A lot of athletes and and some teams reaching to take care of their employees and then some outcries over other teams just letting everybody going letting them fend for themselves. Well usually learn who you know or again to sort of have these larger takeaways. At this point I think is impossible and probably a little arrogant and that we don't know what the world is going to sort of hold for us six months from now what it doesn't terms of a Sort of a micro focus is it does tell you what what institutions are community minded. What organizations are trying their best to save jobs versus doing immediate cuts? But I would say honestly for the most part. A lot of these sort of questions won't get answered for for months. We don't really know what it means because we still don't know how long how long were in this abnormal situation. And they're going to be parts of North America that returned faster and parts of North America. That a more conservative don't and we don't even know the impact of of what that means you know on a personal note. I support listening to the medical professionals and scientists and if that means we have to stay at home longer means that at the same time. I'm very fortunate where I have a job where I'm able to do that and still navigate. You know there are other people who hands so. It's just very hard to to answer that question organizations that really care about their employees. I think will do come up with the most creative solutions. They can't ultimately save jobs. Preserve Jobs. I wanted to ask you about the big picture. I but now on On more micro level you're doing daily sports radio and now You've launched a sports podcast at a time without sports What the heck you guys talking about. Well you'd be surprised. I mean if you have enough creative in And Smart People. And I'm not referring to myself on that is sort of behind the scenes people and producers technical directors etc. You can come up with stuff like the the fact is like the Nexus of sports and covert nineteen is is pretty significant from what these leaves are thinking now to what players are doing to athletes who are connected to medicine right now and some of the more remarkable things that that they're doing everybody essentially within this has a story that's kind of why they're still a lot of content to do. It's because every person in the sports world in some ways impacted this you know. Roger Goodell and Rob Manfred are impacted in a certain way commissioners of Leagues. And they have to figure out what the how to navigate the next path where. Hayley wickenheiser is impacted differently. Someone who's a former athlete but also an emergency room doctor? So you know has to sort of navigate that world so at least for both the sports on pause as well as writer's block I I have
How Studio 360 Got Started
"Hosting studio three sixty Kurt. Anderson Co founded. Spy magazine was a writer editor. Columnist design and architecture critic and playwright. He'd also just written a novel turn of the century which came out in nineteen ninety nine. The Britain plays. He worked for television. I mean he just was a renaissance person in the arts and in journalism and that was exactly the kind of person we were looking for. That's Melinda Ward the former chief content officer for Public Radio International and creative studio three sixty. And here's Julie Bursting again. I remember that lunch that I had with him when I was interviewing for the job. And he said you know. I've been working with a vocal coach to try to get me to not sound like I grew up in Omaha. That didn't work. Well I said to him. We're firing that person because you need to sound like you if you sound like just yet. Another announcer with a announcer voice. This show is GonNa fail so you gotta sound like yourself. Good Morning. I have realized over the years that I am always. I think much better at this. If I've worked out for Sunday off my super villain name. I speak Spanish. I'M CISCO I need. This is a child to crew. I had a forty five this record in. Oh this is the end and I'm curt Anderson. Thanks very much for listening so for me I was. I would always record Kurt in his sessions and I was in some of his first sessions. And you know he was brand new at doing it. He wasn't sure what P popping was. He didn't know how close to sit to the microphone. He didn't know what a pickup was. It was fun to help someone figure all that stuff out in the interviews. I felt like it took them awhile. Loosen up I'm just GONNA say that. Pairing Him with interesting people felt like the best way to use him so in those early days we just looked for really cool funny interesting people for him to sit down with and that got him excited to come into the office and into the studio and do that and I still remember the day that season Santana came in people do feel a turned off or or indifferent. two images of horror and and war and suffering that they see in that they feel indignant about I think it's comes not because they're blase but because they feel impotent or powerless and I think that's perfectly understandable reaction and I saw Kurt in our conference room and the look on his face of sort of terror was really powerful but I knew he would do a great job but I could see that. This was like the first person we've ever had in the studio that he was a bit in awe of it was just this powerful show about how artists have looked at war since homer and she was phenomenal and he did a great job. Do you feel okay about the new. Whatever you say okay. We show him how current into a lot of different situations that require lots of different levels of sort of being alert to possibilities. We just through so much stuff at him and you know it's a different kind of show in that. He didn't generate ideas but he would rarely say no. I remember doing this segment on sky. Come up with this talk show within the video game halo and we had. Kurt like go and be like an Avatar in the game. They're shooting I'm trying to defend us here. Your need to move faster Kurt. I'm sorry I mean it seems funny to think about it now but like at the time it was super crazy and cutting edge at this guy had figured out how. Sorta hack the game and had this whole virtual reality six months after Katrina. We planned a trip to go to New Orleans. Really figuring out how they were going to try to solve this problem of of how to. Kinda rebuild the city and what the design questions were around at all. The water is gone now of course but the wreckage. That remains is absolutely shocking. Presumably the people in this neighborhood are among those who a great many of them majority perhaps didn't have that's right. They didn't have a choice. I think that's one of the great travesties of Katrina went on a trip to New Orleans for a few days to kind of produce it and get all the different voices together. But you know he's always been really passionate about design and kind of see him step up and really tap into the the human element of what was going on there. It wasn't just like an architecture is it was about people's homes and lives. It was really interesting to see him in that element because so often he is just in a studio and actually one of a favorite memories of working with them in the studio was a program that we did In two thousand fourteen and it was our nineteen fourteen episode and we produce the whole thing as though we had been on the air in nineteen fourteen and today's program we present to you through the medium of radio some singular developments taking place in the arts today in literature drama music and the media. Moving pictures new technologies and new ideas are changing. What we the American people create and how we are entertained. He delivered it in the crazy. Old Timey Voice. That people use stood us for broadcast announcing and our technical director at that time. John Galore. Who brought in a megaphone? Like a troll off Warne and had Kurt record threw it into the mic to compress everything down. I mean I've seen Kurt Geek out on many wonderful occasions but I have never seen him geek out that joyfully. It may not be too old to speculate that later. Generations will look back upon nineteen fourteen as a remarkable year perhaps as a year in which the twentieth century cruelly began. This week on the PODCASTS. Were looking back at the early years of studio three sixty which is drawing to a close after two decades of covering arts and culture on the radio after the first year on the air the show was finding its groove and its audience but then in the fall of two thousand one. The unthinkable happened. There has been an explosion at the World Trade Center in Lower Manhattan. The upper floors of northern tower at the World Trade Center has experienced an explosion studio three sixties original offices were at wnyc in the municipal building at the base of the Brooklyn Bridge just blocks away from the World Trade Center. I remember coming into work in. Minneapolis and hearing on the radio about the the hit on the towers and then coming into PRI and of course the WNYC studios were right under. The twin towers are right next to them and the that a lot of people took came up under the twin tower so we were horrified and terrified didn't terribly worried about a whole. Wnyc staff and studio three sixty staff you know found out later that Julia Burstein had been in the office and she had had she'd left. Wnyc had to walk all the way up the west side of Manhattan to think it was her brother's apartment or something to call day and coughing and choking and nobody knew what was going on.
Studio 360 Extra: Aural History: How Studio 360 Got Started
"Invited the rock the World Wrestling Federation champion to speak at the Republican National Convention. Pupil sock it to me. I became an official painter. I don't express political desires in my novels. I just tell story. Hello I'm Chris Anderson and this is studio three six. That's how studio three sixty began. Its first episode on November. Four two thousand just before we elected George W Bush and we all learned what a hanging Chad was my special guest today in Studio. Three sixty is the artist. Barbara Kruger. Who will talk with us about politics and power in movies and music and even in her own art? I make art about the collision of my days and nights with the culture that has constructed and contains me all that and more coming up in studio three sixty from WNYC and PRI public radio international originally produced out of WNYC. Here in New York. The show is all about the cool but complicated and sometimes strange ways that art touches our lives two decades later. That mission hasn't changed. Even if the people making the show have come and gone I'm Jocelyn Gonzalez executive producer of studio three sixty but I was still wet behind the ears associate producer when the show debuted two decades ago. I was away from the show for about ten years before returning to the staff in two thousand seventeen so as the show draws to a close sadly after twenty years I turned to some of my friends from the formative years of studio three sixty for their impressions. Could we create these beautiful stories that represent all sorts of interesting things that are going on in the country in terms of arts and then have Kurt sit with some of that? He was comfortable with and talk about them. That's Julie Bursting who was executive producer of studio three sixty when the show launched and who wrote the studio three sixty book called spark in two thousand eleven and this is Carrie Hillman who was our first senior producer and is now the executive producer at story car. At the time there had been a lot of magazines shows and it was a way for us to sort of do something different and fresh and it was like a a really creative solution to like a lot of really boring magazine. Formatted programming so I was like really game to try to figure it out. We also had two assistant producers. I'm Michelle Seagull. I started at studio three sixty as a assistant producer. In September of two thousand. I stayed through twenty thirteen as a pretty Sir and I'm now the managing producer of Sleet Studios I'm Tall Milad and I started at St Three Sixty as an intern in the year. Two Thousand and I was there until two thousand fifteen When I left I was senior producer of the show for about ten years before that and I now work at Pushkin Industries Heading up development also on staff during the early days of the show was producer and technical director. Steve Nelson Steve's now a programming executive at NPR Johnson. Do you remember what the working title was when we got there? Oh yeah hot ticket right which is first of all a terrible name and doesn't get to any of the big ideas that studio three sixty does as a name but secondly this is sort of in the relatively this was during the post dotcom boom and someone typed in hot ticket dot com into a website and it was an adult site for general audiences for sure. That was the end of hot ticket as a name every week. Studio three sixty we explore. One big idea in-depth. Today we look at the intersections of art and medicine. The idea of studio three sixty or an art show for public radio had been kind of kicking around for a long time. People were on the ground producing pieces. Trying to sort of see what would stick Eventually they brought Julie Burstein and she had this idea of like putting on pieces that sort of built on one another in having an artist or somebody else react to each piece. We started calling it a through line which was just an idea that we would carry through the show and I think the idea of having a theme came from we have to have some structure in order inside it to be able to play. The idea was that Kurt would open the show with a monologue is always delightful to look back and see that exotic bits of civilization. John Ashcroft was a senator his most celebrated crusade a failed crusade for some years. Now one of my hobby horses has been the blurring lines between news politics crime or and entertainment and then he would have a person in the studio with him and then we would present pre recorded pieces to play for this person. I try in my work to speak to the human in US and That human end to bear kind of witness and in enabled react to it. That's really fascinating That makes me think of this. Yes we looked a lot at the degeneration of people's memories and one of the pieces of research we discovered is precisely why I found listening to that piece so fascinating so it would give us an opportunity. Say something that took them off of their typical talking points that gave us an insight into the way they think their personality It also added some depth. I think to the the pieces themselves because you can't do everything in five minutes and so maybe you have to like leave something on the cutting room floor but you can resurrect it a little bit with with the like well-placed Kirk question so I thought it was really cool. I loved gathering stories from really disparate places and putting them next to each other and then talking about them. It was just so much fun. Do you remember a point when you realize it was working? I have to say. I think that first Shakespeare show because it was a whole show bringing Shakespeare up-to-date but we had Neil Gaiman Willie's just grumbling about the fact that he's a crappy writer and the San man the eponymous Lord of the rings who happens to be in this up goes over to will and offices deal are you will shakespeare. I have we met. We have but men forget in waking hours. And you and Steve or maybe it was Steve. That incredible intro He started it with Scharzenegger's hang on not to be not to be tied in the phase of man when in disgrace with fortune and men's on have we hear. Hello I'm curt Anderson and Mrs Studio Three six. It was so hilarious and it was just. It was like okay. We got it this works. I'm Peter Clowney and I was studio three six I Adler and these days I live in Saint Paul and I'm vp of content strategy for stitcher. It's a struggle sometimes to do a show. That has a theme I approach. That idea would caution now if someone wants to do a show that theme like to say like remember. It's got multiple pieces in it. You're going to have the fifth favourite piece about Gardens in this episode. But it's true that like building on the ideas across an hour is like really meaningful. My name is Eric Linski. I started as an intern. In two thousand four became assistant producer and then decided to become a contributing reporter of which I was to studio three sixty through the beginning of two thousand sixteen and I am now the host and creator of the podcast imaginary worlds. Yeah I remember this one episode where they had Madeleine Albright the through line theme was democracy and so she's sitting in the studio with Kurt and then one of the pieces was about American idol. Which was the hottest thing back? Then and they were talking about how people were taking American idol democracy far more seriously than actual presidential elections. Have you ever had a chance to see American idol? Well I actually have and I've been pretty depressed As I am by television generally these days which seems to be going to the lowest common denominator and I. I don't like the word Elitism as we kind of lost me on this last segment of him and it was really funny here. Man Albright come out of that piece. And what do you think of that? She was not too thrilled with the peace to quality that piece but what she was hearing in the piece. I'm Derek John. I was a producer and editor on the show from about two thousand four to two thousand twelve ish and since then I've done a whole bunch of work in the podcast world but I am now currently an executive producer of the how to with Charles Duhig podcasts. At slate when the theme through line shows worked man they were amazing. I mean it was like we had set this high bar and they were so hard to pull up when they clicked and everything fit together. It was truly fantastic radio and it was hard I would say we had some shows that weren't successful and that's actually what led to having to change one. Really terrible through line. Thematic show was fish the fish just literal fish in the sea. Animals really jumped the shark on that one
Chris Urmson: Aurora CEO - Autonomous Driving
"Hello and welcome to our first episode of behind. Find The tech in twenty twenty. I'm Christina Warren. Senior cloud advocate at Microsoft. And I'm Kevin Scott all right so Kevin. It is twenty twenty which Shh is both the new year and I guess a new decade although people will get weird technicalities and it's always a great Chance to kind of look back at what's happened over the last ten years and reflect on new opportunities. Yeah I mean I it. Is I think in their industry and for human beings in general really easy to get completely used to new innovations that in our lives. But like when you think back ten years ago the world looked like a very different place than it looks right now so smartphones were just catching on. They were nowhere near as ubiquitous as they are all right now and the things that you could do on them were far far more constrained than they are right. Now I mean for. For God's sake people were renting movies from blockbuster In two thousand ten right very blockbuster was actually still a thing and instagram hadn't even been invented yet. Coley different world you know I do now that we've hit twenty twenty. Do you have any forecasts about what the next year intact might bring her even the next decade. Well well I think one of the themes that we spent a bunch of time chatting about last year on the podcast was artificial intelligence machine learning and I think we are are certainly going to see the trends that that had started in the prior year's continue to accelerate as one of the reason why I'm really interested in chatting with our guest today So autonomous vehicles. For instance. I believe are going to make AK- ton of progress over the next couple of years in particular and I'm really looking forward to seeing some of that stuff. Play out yes I couldn't agree more. It's funny I don't have a driver's license But I've actually been on a few self driving car panels over the years and I I think the technology she behind it is so fascinating. Which is why? I'm really really excited about your conversation with today's guest. Chris Armstrong and Chris is an engineer. Who's known for his work in pioneering self driving car technology? Yeah and you know one of the reasons that I'm especially interested in self driving cars and I'm looking forward to this conversation that we're about to have Chris is that There's so many ways that the world is going to change for the good once we we are able to put this technology into the hands of lots of different companies so One of the things that will hear about Aurora's. They are a company building the self off driving car technology as a platform for other companies to use to build autonomous applications. And so you know one of the things that I'm sorta hopeful for that will come into the world in the not-too-distant future is some technologies. That may help my grandmother. So I'm I'm lucky enough to have a grandma that's still still alive. She's eighty nine years old and lives in a very rural place in Virginia And she can still drive which is awesome but the day is coming where she's not going to be able to To drive her car car in the same way that she is right now and Like then it begs the question of how she has access to all of the things that she needs in order to help her live and independent life. So how does she get her prescription medicines. Like how does she get her groceries and You know just just sort of the staple things that she needs to exist. And one of the things that I think could be really incredibly beneficial with these self driving thing. Technologies is Like the possibility that you'll be able to have autonomous deliveries for people like my grandmother. I think you're absolutely right. I think the potential for the stuff is really fantastic. So let's hear more about some of the potential for this technology from Chris Aronson Guest today is Chris. Samson Christie's the CO founder and CEO Vera accompanied the bill self driving vehicle technology before founding Aurora he was CTO. Google self driving car program prior to that. Chris was a faculty member of the Robotics Institute at Carnegie Mellon University where he was the technical director of the Darpa urban and grand challenge teams. I'm really excited to hear what he's up to these days. Hey Chris the the show. Thanks for having me so I love to start by learning how you got interested in technology in the first place as a kid. Were you taking engineering classes or programming classes when you were in high school. So are you discover that in college back. When I was in high school there wasn't really computer science at high school And so I Bought Oughta some kind of Tandy x eighty six clone or whatever Back when I was in probably ninth or tenth grade from money for my paper route A- and you know tried to learn to program at first where you go you know you don't if you recall this but you go to the bookstore and you'd buy You know this paperback for Back Book. That was program whatever it was and it was just the source code listing and this before C. D. Roms even pete which people probably don't even remember that that's right we Before that actually bought a commodore sixty four and of course that was exciting. Because it didn't have tape drive right right or it didn't have a floppy drive floppy yeah and five and a quarter inch. Discs that's what had YEP YEP so anyway so we was doing that and then this language C. Plus plus which seemed to be the hot new thing And so started. Actually the first programs I really learned with C. Plus plus. Wow that's rough. Yeah yeah it was a little crazy. A I mean I guess on some some level like CPS was challenging lodging first language. But the good thing is after you've mastered as downhill it's all downhill And so did. Did you know from all of this experience in high school that you wanted to get a computer science and engineering. Gary you know up in Canada so apply to you you know variety of schools got into into a couple of them And then in my senior here I met a girl Turns out now. She's my wife. And decided I wanted to stay at the University of Manitoba which is right in central Canada and Manitoba and got into the computer engineering? School computer. Seem like you know they had a future.

He details the way adult by CS and self interest fail the most vulnerable members of society, it's children. Marcia Ali is remarkable as the embittered antisocial, Wayne Hayes, a Vietnam vet who craves little more than the company of liquor and an empty VFW hall. He and his partner Roland west played by Stephen Dorf, our detectives with the Arkansas state police a white high school student will pursell and his older sister Julie have disappeared in nineteen eighty from their tiny mostly white mostly poor town of west finger Arkansas director, Jeremy sonya's time-line jumps from nineteen eighty to nineteen ninety when the case is reopened to twenty fifteen. When a journalist interviews Hayes about his work Hayes. Meanwhile, struggling to sort out what happened before. For the fog of Alzheimer's permanently. Clouds, his brain. Depicting Hayes, especially as an elderly man waited with regrets is an exercise in restraint eilly pulls it off with a plumb black residents. Don't trust Hayes because he wears a police badge at the precinct his instincts, carry less weight than his white partners. Hayes knows his race limits. His professional progress if fuels the way he pulls away from people which in turn worsens, his prospects for advancement pizzicato understands that the racial dynamics of west finger don't just create divisions. They forced people together to Hayes Mary's the only other middle-class black person in town will pursell high school English teacher Amelia Reardon played with deceptive ease by Carmen jogo. They expertly recreate the instant report that forms between black people who've never met casually chatting about everyday racism, like they're discussing the weather. You know, they're talking about white people. Even if they never say white people from long been teaching about six years all their Westminster. Hey, you say Sarah style from a boss. I'm sorry. Just you know police. I was it here. You know? It's fine. Good really what it is. Here's something then then. Air all poor around here. That's the main thing. What you know me? You know? We're in the hallway or something. They're careful around me, the kinship between Amelia and Hayes could be deeper, but Hayes remains distant Emilia takes an interest in the Priscilla case and her amateur sleuthing turns valuable clues but Hayes too consumed with his own frustrations. Can't appreciate his wife's effort nor her skill. This perhaps is the biggest improvement of the whole series Amelia is nothing like the feebly drawn female characters of the first season. She has real purpose. The first two positions move like molasses on a cold morning. But it soon becomes clear that everyone in west finger, including Hayes, his wife, his partner, and the parents of the missing Priscilla children is starved for connection. Nevertheless, they keep erecting walls to divide themselves from each other in doing. So they repeatedly obstruct the best chances. They have to find out what happened to will. And Julie the production design reinforces west fingers grimness. The town is full of rusted out cars and ramshackle houses and everything exists in a palette of dull Browns and miserable. Grays I've seen five of this season's eight episodes. And the most compelling mystery of true detective is understanding why Hayes has withdrawn from the world around him. It's also about how that withdrawal is a response to larger societal forces including but not limited to racism at this point. I'm wondering can a man who spent decades most comfortable inside his own head for June of connections in time to solve the case taunted him, or will Alzheimer's doom him and the persona children.

In the week-to-week NFL, it's all about survival
"From Minnesota. There was a chance that. Vikings might get the football back down eight but a stupid personal foul penalty on Harrison Smith only would have been second down. But I mean, he's he took a shot at Trubisky late. So you'll get a chance to see the bears on Thursday thanksgiving but Arne getting back to that. Cowboys win today over the falcons and now especially with the Redskins are a quarterback without. Oh my goodness. What a horrible horrible injury. That is. I mean the divisions there for the Cowboys for the taking. Yeah. Don't look now. But Dallas when we're talking about the NFC east is a game behind Washington there at five and five Washington is at six four listen, we'll we'll get to the eagles in the falcons. I know the falcons are in the east, but we'll get them coming up in just a bit. Hey loan. Behold. Arnie maybe the team that looked the best today in the NFC east. Your New York Giants any Eli manning three and seven only three games out of first place right now, but got saquon the boss oil, and that looked a little better about to welcome back them to the division. Title race. Don't take away from it. I will take it away from you yet. I'll let you I'll let you have it for a little bit. I mean, I still believe the raiders can finish eight now. So. Give me give me another week at least with the giants. So foreign six three and seven for the third and fourth place teams. But here's Dallas. Now just a game out in the fife and five and they get Washington on Thursday on a short week with the new quarterback. Washington's gotta go out and find a backup quarterback as well to beyond Colt McCoy. So I dunno Arnie. I almost feel like that. This is a team that for many weeks. We've tried to bury we've listened to the frustration from Bobo our technical director is a diehard Cowboys fan. So he's been frustrated. But now all the sudden with the Lincoln Riley rumors and the Jason Garrett gone the trade from white Cooper's working out now. And they're giving the ball to Ezekiel Elliott. And here we are spending. Most of our first seven minutes talking about Dallas and a resurgence. I got him. I'm as much as you say you call this. And I'm not disagreeing with you. I'm shocked by this over the last couple of weeks that we started with that is because if we started with this takeover. For the show, but I'm going to say it. Anyway, someone's looking for a quarterback what better place for a quarterback in the nation's capital? Then Colin Kaepernick, I mean, what a what a fit that would be all going the Washington playing in Washington. Can you imagine? I mean, a name need one pretty bad. All right. I got a double check who had tweeted that in. I someone was looking at the under over under eight minutes into the show. You would. How about that? I think that was I think that was the over under. I'll have to double check. Oh, yeah. Mike how many minutes into the show this Arnie talk about capper Nick going to Washington? Even though the last time he played Arne was dating supermodels beating Kerr one on one with a nice flowing ponytail. I say two minutes. So actually we hit the over there. I'm sorry. How could you not know? How is that? Not a perfect fit for everybody around for a team that needs an emergency quarterback. But see that could work against them. If they need emergency quarterback, Colin Kaepernick, I dunno. It may take him a while to to get up to speed. So they may have to go with somebody who's you know, a little bit more ready to play. And it's so crazy because you hear these same names rotated over and over Mark Sanchez already was the name that was brought up today. Someone that they might bring in for a workout. How about wait? What's Nathan Peterman? All right. Brought him to Indianapolis or someplace like I don't remember what they brought him into. Oh, man. So tough news today for the Redskins. Not only did they lose the game. But they lost their quarterback in a gruesome injury and shades of the Joe thighs men injury whenever we were kids. It was just good task. We'll get to that coming up in just a bit. But let's stick real quick with this cowboy falcons game from another perspective. What are the hell has happened to Atlanta? I mean, I understand injuries play a major part, right? I get it. You have what's he's had a couple of changes in the coaching staff not a lot. But this is just I mean, this was an offense that was deemed next level. It was it was cruising. And now. Thank you. Thank you. I didn't have to say it Bobo had it. But it was it was really bad really bad army. I don't know where it's going. I mean, look it's one thing to take a little bit of a dip. But what they're going through. It's just you know, it's head scratching their even with injuries. They still have a pretty good offense out there. They shouldn't be having a four six record. This is ridiculous. You shouldn't be losing to the Cowboys at home. You're much better team. Where's that offense? What's going on with Matt Ryan? I know you don't wanna point, you know, all the blame at your quarterback. But under three hundred yards. You know, you've got Julio Jones there, you still got him to go ahead and throw the ball to you got some new you've got weapons around you. What's going on out there? I got to start pointing the finger would Matt Ryan. And I thought a couple of weeks ago in part of this might have been because I opened my big dumb mouth Atlanta to go to the Super Bowl. I thought they'd won three straight. Why? Didn't think they had they had they had won three straight games after a really ugly loss to Pittsburgh. They beat the buccaneers. They slid by the giants and then they put a pretty good weapon on the Washington Redskins. But then they go to Cleveland, and they get beat last week. They lose the Cowboys today and Arnie their next three games are at New Orleans home for the suddenly I'll know I don't wanna get carried away on the Mark Jackson. We'll talk about that later. Suddenly resurgent ravens. And then they go to Green Bay those are three even on Green Bay's not playing its best football right now. But already they could be four and nine for sure gonna be foreign seven when they play the saints next week with the way that things, but what the hell is going on in Atlanta right now, it's a tough question to try to answer. And I wanna to say something also go up surprised that you did start with the Cowboys in Atlanta considering the biggest win today put somebody into the Super Bowl. And I thought that's where you were going to start you you really bury delete. I hate the skull. You on the air back and say you buried the lead because the Pittsburgh Steelers with their win today. Just put them in the Super Bowl. Meaning they'll beat the patriots at home, which means they'll get the number one seed, which means this year Velgo to the Super Bowl buried elite. Well, you know, it is kind of shaping up a little bit for maybe a Pittsburgh New Orleans slash Lossiemouth battle in the Super Bowl. I think we'll learn a lot tomorrow night. This is crazy because here we are Sunday night and a majority of the time the Monday night football game. Here's a conversation. We have as we're heading out the door in our final segment. Sunday, Monday night, football's usually, hey, don't forget tomorrow night. We'll see next week. But now with the Rams and the chiefs. I mean, I I don't know Arnie I- Kansas City quite a bit. But you're right. I mean, I know knock on Kansas City because I know as soon as I say anything about Kansas City. They start dogging on the raiders. Yes. The raiders stink. You're really good this year. How does that make you feel better? But you you can't help. And I know it's all difference because it Mahomes, did, you know, Patrick Mahomes likes catch up to not hear that at all on social media. Yes. I'm actually with you on this one. I now Arne because I love what Kansas City is doing. I'm enjoying watching them play. But you know, what they have sold a short in the playoffs before they have disappointed when we thought they were the team to beat. We have heard. Hey, things are different this year. You just wait till we get to the playoffs. Guess who's consistently been there and consistently got done the Rodney burger?
