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

"Something like that okay He bought a victorian house there last year. Gutted it and We bill tae a little studio on the top floor and the rest of it has been made into offices. And so it's we. Call it pushkin north or he calls it pushkin north oklahoma in. It's just a little workspace but we set up a A dante studio up there. It's pretty simple to dante. Can you explain just briefly. What dante is and and how you're using it in that studio curium dante's just an audio variety p Language so it's you know it. Basically involves You know connecting audio devices via ethernet cables. And they they speak to one another in of i've done a lot of Audio variety p work. This is the first time i've done dante. Dante is is more obey wide open You know open source you know. There's fifty different companies that make dante devices but there are other versions Like a live wire which abused. and that's that's only a tell us product product. Yeah yeah yeah. Yeah and that's Anyway the great thing about about audio vip versus you know regular analog audio That that you can you can set the boards up to just always work the same way you know you can do. These presets someone you know. You set up an analog board. Someone comes in and hits every button then you have to go in and investigate like sherlock holmes to figure out what the hell they did wrong. And maybe they did this. Maybe they did that. Maybe they hit this ox night or whatever but with know with with without over ip you can just hit a button and go reset to begin zip and everything goes right where it was all your in ouster batching. Everything just goes back to where it should be so You know our producers do a lot of their own engineering we try not to do you know A whole lot of actual sitdown engineering of the session so that allows for that too right right. Yeah and just to be clear for the listeners When when you're talking about audio going over ethernet cables. This is like obviously you still need. To use regular microphones and use. Xlr cables to plug it. You know get the microphone into some sort of a preemptive and then after the the audio gets into the preempt and then made probably get digitize then when it flows through the studio or the consul wherever then it goes over ethernet and all that but so it. Because i've never used the dante system but But yeah once once the microphone audio gets to the preempt from there on is just digital right so we have An eight channel..

"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.

The First American To Play For Barcelona

The Lead

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.

"Technical director is Kelly, blogger. President Trump again accusing Democrats of wanting to add more Supreme Court justices to the bend. She was speaking at a rally in Florida, saying Democrats want to add more seats to the high court to level out what could be a conservative majority. If Amy Cockney Barrett is confirmed. And the Koven 19 outbreak on UW's Greek row continues to grow now 238 positive cases among 16 sororities and fraternities. At a press conference last week, the governor expressed frustration, saying that behavior on Greek rose, exposing all to great risk. Dr Anthony found. She wants the Trump campaign to pull a new political ad that Douchey has featured in saying his words were taken out of context. The spot touts trumps personal experience with the virus and uses a quote from Fauci, which makes it appear he's praising the president's response. The narrator says President Trump is recovering from the Corona virus, and so is America and the narrator goes on to say together we rose to meet the challenge protecting our seniors getting them life saving drugs in record time, sparing no expense. Here's what Dr Fauci had to say when he was asked about this today By Jake Tapper on CNN. You're on camera, saying quote. I can't imagine that anybody could be doing Mohr. You quickly came out with a statement that noted that that sentence had been taken out of context You were talking about. The whole of government response, not President Trump. And Of course, you've never endorsed a presidential candidate. And you're five decades of public service. Should the Trump campaign take this ad down? You know, I think so, Jake. I think it's really unfortunate and really disappointing that they did that. It's so clear that I'm not a political person, and I have never either directly or indirectly endorsed a political candidate. And to take it completely out of context statement and put it in which is obviously a political campaign. And I I I thought was really very disappointing. What would you say if I told you I heard that the Trump campaign was actually preparing to do another ad featuring you? You know, that would be terrible. I mean, that would be outrageous. If they do that, in fact, that might actually come back to backfire on them. I hope they don't do that, because that's that would be kind of playing a game that we don't want to play Esso. I hope they reconsider that, if, in fact, they are indeed considering doing that. I hope that they reconsider and not do that. That's Dr Anthony Fauci on CNN today. As the seasons get colder, the chance for catching Cove it increases for the homeless. That's according to a recent U Dub study. We have more now from comas, Matt Market, It's all had gone as planned. The regional homeless authority we've talked about it for more than a year would start to be up and running. Or they could start planning on where to handle some of the homeless here for this winter. Because of Kobe. That authority has been delayed for months. So that's not really an option. So instead what we have is a situation where he can't mints are not being removed because of the CDC guidelines there. Still recommending camps remain in place if there.

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. Yet that except the economy, we have been spending this week looking at the different ways that six hundred dollars a week. An extra unemployment benefits going away next week is going to play out today. Slice is people in the GIG economy. Who as marketplace's Mitchell Hartman reports are likely to feel the pain most acutely. Jennifer Jesse has a one woman sat and act tutoring business in Woodbridge Virginia, heading into the spring. 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. He says he won't have enough to cover basic expenses or keep his studio equipment till theaters opened again.

Lord help us and save us. You you can call it the bottom. Let's But it's just amazing how far you've come and. You're still pretty young. I've I've been very lucky. You know I've been in the right place. Right, time a lot of it, but I do have a very strong work ethic. I had identified that this was something that I would very passionate about kind of early on and. You know I just kind of set a goal for myself that I wanted to be a big player in this industry I didn't know that I wanted to be at td. I just knew that I wanted to you know have a have a big part in in whatever you know the final product was that was going out and It just lucky in that.

In the break room in the hallway, we just have these conversations for hours. But yeah. No, you're a great guy. So how do you? What kind of advice are you giving to people that that want to be in this control room and how make these TV shows? Well. So the number one piece of advice that I give to everybody. Is that in this industry, you can't take anything personally. There's so much that goes on in the heat of the battle.

"I am using a two button mouse by Amazon basic. That I bought for about three dollars. So this is Through doing or Yes. This now, this is actually a product called kid rock. and. The best way I can describe it as it's almost zoom meets powerpoint a little bit. To where everybody is logging in with a remote connection it's all done in the cloud of course, but we basically kind of all meet together in this virtual lobby. And we're able to create these scenes. What you wish everything has to be done ahead of time. So you really have to kind of stop down in have an idea of what you're trying to do before you get into any kind of troop reduction because unlike unlike a true switcher, you can't. Really. Build things on the fly. Just. So I understand it like I haven't watched game time now. Is there are they in front of a green screen or do you have like lower thirds of their any kind of graphics? What what are you doing to make it look somewhat like a regular television show somewhat presents more so Basically doing a line cut on this kids we there's no green screen we're literally just seeing. Behind them in what we're trying to get our talent, you know no windows behind you Avi because the light just completely blows out in the cameras got IRAS. But You know some people have bookshelves and things like that behind them. But yeah it it's their house is the background, and then what we'll do is we'll actually we'll do a line cut. In the application, we do at noon every week day and we typically tape it from noon to about we're usually done by one. In the line we try to keep it as simple as possible camera cuts the occasional graphic. Video that they just you know we're trying to get a raw organic reactions from our talents. We'll go ahead and show them the video on this APP, but we try to keep things as clean as possible. Logo up the whole time MBA. There's a Gametime logo that's in the upper star the bottom right portion of the screen that you see when when they're on a three boxer, a toolbox box got three talent together when we cut to their singles, it goes away but. We're actually we're kind of experimenting right now with with the wanting of the talent. A lot of the are being put in post. So what's happening is that once this line cut is done about one o'clock there's a Turner Studios editor promoting into one VM. One of the edit suites from home, and they are taking this line cut and they're putting graphics transitions over. There putting in a majority of the video of whether it's V. O. or whether it's On tape they're putting all of the music. So they're really making it a presentable Priok trae. That you're doing that dern. dern cove it, and I guess. Last question before we wrap it up and get to advice. They have for younger people and people want to switch careers or just want who are interested in what you do. The NFL draft, what did you think about that? That was so crazy that they just had like a hundred hundred and fifty feeds and they put them all together. Seems like some guy ran out of his garage from what I understand. Yeah. The NFL NFL draft was pretty unbelievable. Amazing Technical Standards..

"A lot of times they'll be looking for somebody to direct TV? Just because a lot of times they don't have the budget higher positions and for something that's a smaller shoot maybe three or four cameras. There's just not as much to keep track of you can get away with having one person doing both those positions. Very. Quick. Yeah. That's. The nuts and bolts the thirty thousand foot level of would what I do, and then my counterpart is sitting over in the Audio booth is the audio engineer or a one has as we referred not the steak sauce. That's actually their position. We heard that in the industry, but they are basically me from an audio standpoint they are sitting in front of a giant, Mixing Board, and mixing all the mics together all of the game audio. When we go to a game transitions, you name it anything that you hear is coming from them. So. We have this partnership shining on a you know this. For for March, madness? Tournament and so. I think the time they were alternating years is far is which network between CBS and TBS got to televise in produce these this election, shrink the march madness election Sunday show. And it's always big. You know big ordeal as it should be. And we've got into the habit of using both our studio here in Atlanta and the CBS studio up in New York. and. So they'll kind of go back and forth and you know, of course, we have fiber connectivity between all of our studios now. So you don't really have to worry about lag time or or any of that anymore. It's it's a pretty. Cohesive conversation. They were on a to box where you could see our studio on the left in CBS studio on the right. All of a sudden, all the lights went out in New York and not even the house lights were like everything went dark. And what's funny about it is that it wasn't a full power loss because we still have the camera signal coming to us. But We have the lights went down I believe the Mike's went down to. So it was it was just kind of one of those situations where we had to cut back to our own studio very quick and then of. Go with right. And that's just. Sitting you know you're not always lucky. You don't always have a bail out like. And I'll actually tell you. When I program my shows on the Swisher, I have a button that program and it's called the shoot. That second word might be might be a little bit different but basically what it is that if I completely lose my cameras, I have this fallback full screen that'll go online that basically just says gametime nightly on NBA. Effectively almost axes like a commercial slate. That you know if all else failed, I could throw that up with just one button pushing. Then you've got something coverage because the last thing that a network wants to do is sit in black or or sit in color bars or you know something that's not supposed to be there right and today's just people know because some people listen to podcasts like a year later this is Wednesday April twenty, nine, twenty twenty, and we are in Cova and I'm just curious because you said you were doing the game time show from Your House and the talent at their house what kind of switcher you using you're not using the full blown switch, right?

I'm here with Dan Cross. Wait a good buddy. He is a technical director at one or meteors studios, and thanks for doing this. Dan My pleasure man always privileged to get to talk with the pride of Methuen Massachusetts. And let's just start before we get into why you got into the film and Television Industry why do people call you NASCAR's nickname Because I liked to go fast and term left man. So. It's not quite as interesting as you might hope and I'm sure we'll get into this with the story a little bit too but I started for TNT, for Turner as a runner for Nascar on TNT, it used to be a summer package that we had. For I don't know how many. Listeners are familiar with with the NAS car season but it's a really really long season. It runs from like middle of February when they have the Daytona five hundred and usually wraps up around the end of November. So long season, not a not a whole lot off season, and at the time, this is going back to two, thousand seven they had the TV rights split up so that Fox would televise I I believe it was the first. Eighteen races of the season maybe, and then Turner would get the next six. INTO ESPN would finish up the season they still split it up but I believe that networks are different. Now I've kind of lost track and didn't go on the Road Riyan Bill Baker and those guys are you know I Anderson? I don't remember if st was on the road most of production personnel that I work with on a day-to-day basis in the control room or Earl folks that I met on the Road Nascar on TNT. But yeah the reason that they call me Nascar is when I started working in the studio. FOR NBA TV starting in two thousand, eight I had amassed a lot of NASCAR SWAG hats shirts you name it and I started wearing it in most of my shifts actually and one of our highlight supervisors at the time a Gentleman Nimble Don. Loved. The Don, Don all the don man somebody that I actually. Oh Oh, quite a bit too. He gave me A. A lot of a lot of leeway. At the start of my career in an really kind of believed in me and. was really kind of responsible for for me sort getting on the radar at studios but. He. decided that that because I had all this NASCAR that? Using a call me NASCAR and I think you just announced in the middle of the room through Monday. Say you know what we're GONNA call you mass car and? It stuck, and now we are what well years later and I will never be able to myself. It's still there. It's a good thing though it's funny everybody kind of needed a nickname in that area. Well, just also, Turner sports everybody had a nickname of course. All right. So let's go back. And in this could be when you were a kid or high school or college. When did you know that you wanted to be in the TV and in film industry?.

"Another driver with just another way of doing things And that's kind of the first step in it and then really to listen to what they all have to say. I think we're kind of unique. Where a lot of these guys like thought or coming into our program were already executing and at a pretty high level cars pretty well sorted and we find a they just provide a little tidbits of information and they're all off. The top guys are really willing to adjust slightly to your car. 'cause they believe they're coming into something that high level and you know so we really listen to what they're saying and they know what they're doing big time and it's really. Nice Balance Logan on your end being your first year with Wayne Taylor racing. Was it special to be able to work with somebody like Scott? Dixon definitely really cool Brian laughs because of I remember the first time that he came into the shop. I had to give helmet and then I went over to Brian after he left. And I'm like dude. Did Scott Dixon said hey and I mean come in for me. I'm I'm still a pretty new. I've only been in kind of racing for three years and I'm not really used to working with You know the Scott Dixon's of the racing world so it was pretty surreal to kind of be in that position working with with these drivers of that caliber Is is really cool. I definitely understand that so guys will wrap it up with one final question here. I appreciate both of your time this morning. Here and hope you guys stay safe but whenever the season is able to get back underway. Here's is there one track that you're going into thinking we've got a really strong chance at a win. Which one is be your most confident for right? Now I'll I'll let Logan lead. I I wanna hear what is there. I Oh Man. I wanted to hear what you had to say. I'm not I would not know what to say. Actually I don't know how about Logan. Which one do you want to win? The most seabourn would have been cool. But that's kind of to light. Well no now the end of the year so see ring. Yeah I think yeah. Spring would be really cool to to win. I think that's kind of the next big race really. Maybe in the future Louima with the new car. That would be incredible. Just going there but It's a little bit the road so I'd say she right now. Yeah I think overall we're pretty as a team and Logan talk quite aware of this yet. we definitely have a history of really you know nailing it when it's nice and cold you know. We often struggle the part of the season. And we kinda get to the end where conditions called are really are setup are kind of standard setup comes together we we saw that one well So I know that even the crew members have been around. They're all talking about. Oh yes he bring November teat October. You know mid Ohio late September. It's going to be called. We're GONNA you know everybody's pretty excited for kind of the the end season. We've never raced these places called before or that cold before For me I mid Ohio is like my Kryptonite. I have never figured out while and man I want to win. What do P. Rate and I want to announce so bad. I have to ask because because you brought it up. What makes the team so strong? When it's a little bit colder if I knew exactly I would do the opposite and be amazing when it's hot It it's something I think there's certain tendencies car setup dealing with the tires and so forth We kind of had some ideas of why we're strong in the cold. It's hard to go testing like every time you do at tasks need to pray for it to be super hot and the right conditions. I swear we'll book a test middle end up a big cold frontal come through and will not get to try of the things we really believe. Work a big difficulty on a race weekend is you don't have time to Especially with a single car team to do a lot of experimenting or go too far out of your comfort zone. 'cause there's such short time to practice and really put together a race car so you kind of take small deviations from what you know that's been are struggling the heat We've definitely tried some different. Big Setups ones possible. And you know you just don't make pace quick and you've you've gotta go back to your comfort zone quickly. 'cause the races you know his only a couple of practice sessions away Hopefully testing for Ellen D. H. If that comes a boat will be a great opportunity for us to really work at set our comfort zone and figure out be strong on both and a love it. Well guys thank you very much for the time this morning. Look forward to seeing guys at the track at at some point later this year. Definitely definitely see bring at a at a minimum so Stay safe and have a good rest of your day happening. Thanks a lot enjoyed. Appreciate thank you..

The Big Story

10:26 min | 1 year ago

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. Antero has now become the second province after Quebec to call in military helped to fight the corona virus in long term care homes premier. Doug Ford says this is meant to provide operational and logistical assistance. So that workers can focus on caring for residents Ontario's also expanding cove nineteen testing to every resident and worker in long term care homes on Prince Edward Island the premier and top health officials say. They're hoping to lift some of the restrictions around Kovic nineteen in early. May they say this'll be done slowly and with consultation it's still not known when school's in. Pe. I will reopen. And the one thing the premier says will not change anytime soon is the restriction on mass gatherings. Pi has had twenty six cases of the virus. As of Wednesday evening. Canada has now topped forty thousand cases of covert nineteen with two thousand and seventy four deaths. Jordan he'd Rawlings and this is the big story Richard A writer for the athletic. 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.

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.

"technical director" Discussed on KLIF 570 AM

"Doing his part as our musical technical director broadcast on here. I think I gripe enough every day about how much I pay tolls. Just to get to work you pay a car Bill about two hundred twenty dollars. In that range. That's like an under fourteen thousand dollar car car Bill. Yeah, it's a little standard. I, unfortunately, moved to a place where the nearest freeway that is not told would take me thirty minutes to get to or I can take a toll way to get to that untold freeway. Yeah. Either way, I'm screwed. Now. I think living in Collin county as great as it can be. I it's not even an option for me. Because of the told you have to pay anywhere. My lease is up on stately Brown manner. I'm gonna move out of that area. I'm gonna just I don't wanna spend the money. I don't see the point to me the closest suburb that I've been able to figure out that. It's close hop, right? On thirty five is really like your farmers branch. Carrollton Lewisville decent distance away doesn't feel too close. That's lot of places. I'd like to live in the w but the the distance to come to work is just too much, and you have a rain shower and insane people suddenly on the roads. I don't wanna mess with one fourteen is fantastic. That's a great road to be able to come in on. But you're getting you're getting pricey on that road that grapevine and southlake. Yeah. I got to figure out what I'm gonna. But two hundred twenty dollars a month. Tired of it with it? And it's ridiculous that we talked to state Senator who said that he was working to get those tolls. For example. Dell's north tollway especially the original pieces from maybe Addison into downtown that's been paid for since probably early nineties. Maybe maybe since the eighties. Yeah. But we still pay a fortune to be on it. And I don't understand that that doesn't make any sense to me. I be problem paying fifty cents to maintain the thing. Yeah. But they are charging out while frankly tra-, but yeah. Well, what's happened in the legislature? The Texas house is not yet ready to remove the tolls. From roads whose construction costs have been paid off, but lawmakers in the lower chamber just passed Bill critic say would shine a light on how much money tolling into these taken. And how they spend it. Well, gee that makes a big difference instead of taking the two hundred twenty dollars off my credit card Bill every month. They're going to send me an accounting report. Yeah. That's great. That does me. A lot of good many drivers assume they won't be. Charged. Tolls wants construction costs or covered tolling into these can continue to keep charging drivers. Even after the initial cost you're paid because it's a racket while toll entity say this practice is crucial to maintain existing thoroughfares and fun new roads toll opponents rail against the practice. That's what I'm doing. I'm railing. Yes, sir against the practice here. I guess numbers. You have Frisco Republican state Representative Jared Patterson said during a hearing on the legislation he authored the Bill is about transparency. It's about shining light on the activists are toiling into these and giving the public easier access to the information they need to hold them accountable. This doesn't mean anything to me, this is this is a this is a typical government body making it look like they're doing something. Yeah. And in reality, they're doing nothing. They're just moving their hands real fast. So you think something's going on there? And in reality, nothing is changing. You're still going to get charged out the but to go wherever you need to go. Thank conservatives saying we're going to get rid of ObamaCare. We're working on it. Yeah. We're working on that. Aren't we know case? I don't understand what what is the argument for us continuing to pay these tolls into perpetuity. Well, they have to build new roads and maintain the old roads, you know, track much. Well, the here's what they here's the number. They got twenty seventeen in the fiscal. Ear of the generated seven hundred sixty two million dollars in revenue. Most of that came from me. Five hundred eighty two point seven went to maintenance operations and paying debt the extra hundred seventy nine goes towards road, widening improvements and congestion mitigation. I wonder if the people just sitting a few minutes ago backed up from trinity mills to spring valley feel like that road. Congestion mitigation had been handled there. So they're overcharging you they're paying they're taking extra money, and they're finding ways to say, oh, we're going to justify it this way. But apparently, the TA does not keep specific revenues and costs and debt. Thanks for specific roads. It's just one big general fund great. They just spend it as I see fit. So if you live in Collin county, don't look for any relief from your legislators, they want to make you think they've done something. But they've done nothing. They've done absolutely squat there as useless as boobs on a bull as by grandfather used to say, although he used a different word. So you're still gonna pay lots and lots of cash just to get out of Collin county. I look I know there are a lot of toll places and once I got no problem with toll roads. But the reason the legislature doesn't want to do anything because they don't want to spend money on text building roads. They don't wanna pay for the roads. They don't wanna put bonds out there because people might vote them down. And then they'll get blamed when traffic is heavy. They don't wanna spend state money. They don't want to raise the gas tax. They just want to charge the poor poor fools who live in the stupid areas out the butts. Yeah. To pay for the tolls that way, they don't have to build roads, which is their job to do. They can just assign it away to somebody else. I've got it's you and not me. Yeah. Well, it's me for now. But it won't be me for. Long because.

These are some Ord we give out on live high live dot com. Bud tender. What's tender tender? That's bartender bartender. A lot of them have to deal with the new people, and it's very important those can pull when they make the relationship they make it strong. Well, look, it's interesting because we've had a couple invest in verticals that we follow here on the program. And I believe there was the what I call the China syndrome. We covered a lot of China companies about seven eight years ago, then we went into cyber security with the target hack. Of course, crypto currencies what we looked at about two and a half years ago. We started covering this cannabis is sector. Was interesting. We got a lot of flack for people. It's not it's not a real deal. Boy, look what's happened here in the US alone. There are now seven NASDAQ and new York Stock Exchange traded publicly traded cannabis companies. I can tell you though, we are not doing it right here because federal laws have created really money laundering system for many US companies. Guess who did it right rusty? I would say Ecuador no Canada has done it right by federally man. Federally making legal the use of cannabis recreationally as well as here to talk about that Damian kettle. Well is the chairman CEO in founder of a company called bliss co lo bliss co cannabis corporation, you can go to bliss co dot com. And I will tell you. They are publicly traded here in the US under the stock symbol H S T R F HSE are f- put that up on our website. You can see it. But here he has great tabula Damien. How are you, sir? Tastic? A cannabis waffle being made. Yeah. Look, you have been in the regulated environments along time, you were the euro director of it was Jake's Jack Speer in the liquor business. So so, yeah, I mean, it's me on it's great to be here. We're very proud of where radd candidate since had legalizations October seventeenth. But let's take a moment to be grateful for California. Because you you lead the way in nineteen Ninety-six and you legalize medical marijuana state Stateline base in California, California, Canada, did it in two thousand one watching us in Colorado or New York, we were the first ones ninety six so but from that progression. Basically, we can thank the patients who bond together and created lawsuits to government, basically, eleven straight court cases. And then the the good folks and Ottawa had a couple of different ways of doing it introduced federal two thousand thirteen so that models. Created somebody's companies, and you mentioned that are on the NASDAQ today until race group. And then now, it's six months, and we're we're making back on it. Who were the opponents opponents risky? You gotta run for office. I want to legalise cannabis. I mean, how many in the nineties right guys like Steve they were protesting. In nineteen seventy one at the White House that is to get things going then so but we've had some folks working hard and candidate. And now, it's a it's a real business taxes coming in line. We know what happened in Colorado this more schools built when you legalize nineteen two thousand fourteen candidate. We're we're making good city of let's go is is Canadian candidates wellness brands, so really focused on the the weather's components the full spectrum. You know, we we believe in incorporating as many of the hundred and ten plus cannabinoid in oil oil, focus company. The cannabis turbans that really interesting when people visually, Colorado, what was popular high high CV initially, then it was but in Colorado and California, you're more advanced in Canada right now because you really did the Tribune's when. So let's step back between the two countries. Because candidate right? Was there a sec was there a period in in Canadian cannabis story where it was much like the US where you had a division in thought that because what happens here in the US is we have division thought that molds politics. Right. And as you just mentioned, many people are gonna go out there and try to run for office. But how many votes they gonna get? Let's say if they're in the bible belt. They were. Private was a little bit of a battle definitely battle. And you know, there's there's folks were setting up stores, and there was like legal home grows there were happening and providing your own supply Speakeasy rough. Well. So that's you know, and. There was some great advocates. I actually organized a few medical cannabis in grassroots events in the ninety seven ninety eight organizer. Did definitely contributed was folks are putting in more work myself in front of people spending time in jail even patients are winning. I mean, how is the judge going to sit there and listen to respectable lawyer a government official listen to a patient that has fun Joe or has there. Talking like this come on. So that's allowed folks like myself to live the dream of being cannabis entrepreneur and having a federal license, and we have to give there was a prime minister was third place started last federal election. And he says, you know, he was going to win. He did it so about bliss coast. So they're sort of the history of what's happened in the two countries. Let's go. What makes you guys different? What you guys do? Absolutely. We're really focused on being a wellness company. Like, I mentioned and having the full entourage and the full spectrum of canvas oils. Current we were licensed.

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.

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.

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.

This is your reporter at large launch pad, Missouri frequency change approved. Good day. Thank you launch pad. Now mica brings us a story that he calls New Year's dad. The new year comes twice a year for me. Of course, there's this time of year the first day of January for the year. We all know, but there's also the first day of two SRI the Jewish new year called Russia. Shauna. While there's a joy to the Jewish new year. It's more of a time for self examination and repentance attendee process that ends with the holiday of young Kapoor. So we started to write this just as young Kapoor the Jewish day of atonement had ended it had been a week of reflection since Russia Shawna. And while this little piece was started the beginning of the Jewish new year. It's just as applicability for the secular new year when I started writing this. It had just turned fifty seven Seventy-nine, according to the Hebrew calendar. I just couldn't get used to it. I've been writing fifty seven seventy eight on all my checks, but eventually I got over it. The thing that I didn't then won't get over though. Probably for the rest of my life. Is that I miss my dad, Lou anger NCO and the army corps of engineers during World War Two first Lieutenant in the medical corps of the US air force throwing the Korean conflict. A brilliant psychologist, terrific rock and tour bibliophile pulp fix. Western and science fiction fan trivia expert, a gourmet and at times, Gorman and airplane, geek, beer connoisseur. But most important to me right now, my father, he's the man who taught me not so much all I know. But kind of how to know it he shaped my tastes my likes and loves probably unwittingly and unintentionally, but nonetheless, most certainly perhaps more importantly, he told me how to learn for myself how to love and appreciate learning itself. And love the pass on my knowledge to others. It wasn't just the high holy days. It had me missing my dad, although that may have been the impetus. Here's another thing that had me thinking of them, you see it was also the time of the year when the Collings foundation makes an almost annual trip to the jet port here in Portland.

"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?

Yes, There Was a Blue Wave. But How Big Was It?

"In the city are a disgrace. I wanted to watch twelve twelve hour old news clips or old episodes of talk stoop. I would seek them out on my own. And why is it literally impossible to hit the button to turn it off? Come on New York. I just want to note that annoying feature in taxis got louder applause democracy there. For my rent. I want to mention one thing that I was kind of surprised not to hear from the president to sit. I want to mention one thing that I was kinda surprised not hear from the president today. Which is he didn't say this was a fake election result. There was no claim of three million illegal votes in this election. I think it's because he's not the one who personally lost. If he loses somebody else must have cheated. But if other people lose they must have been stupid or they must not have embraced him enough. But still it seems like that was an option available to him. This is a thing you hear a lot from Democrats about while the president is going to call into question the legitimacy of these things that go against him. And certainly sometimes he does that. But I was interested to see today that he chose not to do that and entirely sure why that's all we have time for tonight.
