It's happened to me recently. And i need to share. It's a part of who you are. That's what we're all about here so we all know. My hygiene is a little lackluster. I wanna say. I shower or two three times a week. Tops three times tops to to most now the guy who washes his body two or three times a week is busting my balls by not washing my twice a day. That was the joke. He didn't pick up on so that he doesn't mind right. And i've kind of stopped shutting tips in my ear. Because i i keep seeing these bad articles. Come out about how it's it could be damaging all that kind of stuff and so. I'm just like oh just like let you x grow. Let me let the usb that you know if this is a story about you pulling out like a lot of earwax. I'm gonna throw up. So flashback actually because this is kind of important bit as well when i was going to treatment for my hip i was hyper-baric stuff. And you get put into like a simulated multiple. Here's your wife. let's okay it raises unimportant. They do your exams before every single one of them were and every single time. I talked to dr he goes. Yeah you're fine you gotta hold scrapped on earwax in there. Though every single time in a doctor at you actually said anyway. So i i think a shower my one of my one weekly shower Was this on tuesday wednesday. I wanna say in is like. I haven't skied zip my ear in wiles. Let's go ahead and see what's in there. So i showed it moving around all of a sudden everything in that year becomes like way more muted and quiet. And i'm like what did i just broke my ear drum. Something on the badge happen. And then i start digging again. It gets more and more and what i was doing without shoving you into my ear eventually in this clogged the whole era now and i was like oh crap. That sucks can out my other year. Then office focus on fixing this other year as i started to my other year and the exact same thing and so i'm sitting there. I'm like i i. It's i like charlie brown to the parents you know. We'll more won't won't it was so so so bad. And so i like freaking out and i'm killing. We need to have some at home rugby speakers out so he got warm water. Salt water put it in the year for like five minutes. Started like wiping out a little bit. What's coming out. But it didn't fix anything and then this is when it gets gross. And i was standing there and i was like what can i do. What could i get in my ear to get on the other side of this. Earwax push it out. And i remembered. Dr chris strandberg cupcake from your season. And who were both He's my dentist and he Last time i saw him give me a water. Pick and the water tickets. Phenomenal water floss. Your teeth. I use it every morning and every night before. I go to bed when i was like that. Might just be the thing that i need. And so i set the intensity like middle intensity on the water pick. Put the thing in my ear hole and i just like moving it around and eventually the water behind all of the big wall of ear wax cramming in there with a with a huge and pushed it all out and i kid you not. It was like a thumbnail size of this. Keep that ball at you. Act and i could literally hear colors. Io's became this like superstar. Hearing dog whistles. Exactly and then i was like i do to the other year too so both ears. Use the water. Pick to excavate. I'm not joking. Like a like a stack of five dimes. Put together like stacked on top of each other. That was kind of like the density of each ball of your accent came out of here. It was maybe the nastiest thing i've ever seen come out of my body. I mean that whole explanation. Oh your story. But i mean that's a good. I've always wondered what i should do. Besides a cotton swab. Because people tell you. Don't put those in your ears. So i'm sure i have a buildup of earwax. I just don't know how to segue now not gonna lie. I think we should just wrap up the podcast on that honestly the rest of this. Fbi investigation virtual body language pretty straightforward. If your days looking away frequently distracted not a good sign if they're pulling away from the camera not a good sign and then apparently some people may also have more tension in their lips than even shift their jaw if they're not interested in the other person so that's good to know there's also red flags to look out but look out for but honestly i can't think of anything. Besides deans earwax right now. So i think it's a pretty good time to wrap up this podcast disfavor. If anything weird like that happens to you between now and next accepts this take a mental motivate and i. I would like to hear some weird crazy thing. That might buy one of those. What is it a water. Pick water if you don't buy ears by your is because i think every night i floss and brush and now i'm going to buy from my aunt's water pick and he's listening every single night.

We're the water is not meant for shooting water into your ears and is not recommended by iheartradio the producers of this by me denying lucia put a disclaimer at the beginning of podcasts. Like they do in front of jackass where it's like these are done by prof. Quote unquote professionals. Don't try this at home.

They pull so much out of my teeth every time even after glossing brushing and using their phenomenal so get a get a water. Pick report back to me. Don't stick it in the air. We don't want you to sue us because we told you stick water picking on yardstick must get to hear but that's going to do it for this week's episode. i'm so sorry. Jer my My my surroundings heard any like beeping or moving of the engine as scaling maniac. Apologize for that but thank you guys..

The Hidden Force Shaping Drug Prices
"Soaring prescription. Drug prices are raising the cost of healthcare and have many patients either struggling financially or abandoning treatment and many experts. Put some of the blame on pm's so what exactly are pharmacy benefit managers. And how did they get to be so powerful. Liz tongue starts us off the more read about pharmacy benefit managers. The more they make me think of this fictional bad guy from the movie. The usual suspects heiser soza. Here's kevin spacey in the movie explaining who sows as be turkish. Say father was german. Nobody ever believed was real. Nobody ever knew him or sell anybody that ever worked directly for him but to hear kobe. Aussitot it anybody could have worked for. You never knew that was his power. Kaiser suze is mysterious larger than life and a big part of his power comes from the fact that no one quite knows who he is or the extent of his control which is kind of like pharmacy benefit managers or p. b. m.'s. Most people haven't heard of them and yet they wield a huge amount of power to the point that they affect just about every drug dispensed in the us. Every time you pick up a prescription. You're dealing with a ppm for example. Let's say you go into your local drugstore. walk up to the counter and give them your info and prescription. Yeah i'm going to pick up a couple scripts the pharmacy tech punches buttons. And then there's this moment you stare at the register waiting for the price to pop up wondering helmet dent. Is this going to put in my wallet. It's one hundred sixty six dollars and eighty cents the in a nine at sixty eight eighteen. Those are both through. Your shorts that to me seemed like a lot. I asked the pharmacist. How much most people pay for a month's prescription but depending on the insurance so people pay nothing's people player dollar up to like twenty dollars. Or whatever. So really just depends. I feel like. I never know what to expect when it comes to prescription prices but the surprising thing i learned is i am not the only one and the pharmacist has no idea what he or. She's going to get paid for that prescription. It's not until that prescription is processed and that that usually takes place in real almost in real time while the patient's waiting that's doug hoy ceo for the national community pharmacists association. Doug says this transaction is shaped by that unseen force the p. b. m.'s. They are the consummate middle man. The middleman between the pharmacy and the insurance companies these days. Pbs are huge. If you flip over your insurance card you'll probably see one of three names. Cbs care mark. Optum are ex or express scripts these three companies control seventy to eighty percent of the market. They say their size gives them the power to negotiate bigger discounts with the drug companies. And that in turn reduces prices for the insurance companies and the patients but critics say these are too big they've been called hidden monopolies even quote unquote legal cartels. But doug says that's not help he started out at first. The pm's were really plan prescription processors and so they filled kind of an important need patience before had to file their own claims In a sort of a pain meaning that instead of standing at the pharmacy counter waiting for the tech to punch a few buttons patients had to send their actual paper your prescription claims to their insurance companies and wait to get reimbursed but as more people got health insurance the number of claim skyrocketed soon. It was more than the insurance companies could handle. A solution came at the end of the nineteen sixties in the form of pharmacy benefit managers. Who made it their mission to handle and streamline all that
New antitrust legislation would check the power of tech giants
"Arguably the biggest problem with big tech. Is you know the bigness. A few giant companies gobble up their competition owned the digital advertising and web hosting markets control the information ecosystem and sometimes control the distribution of their own competition so far though these worries haven't led to regulation now democratic senator amy klobuchar who leads the senate subcommittee on antitrust introduced a bill intended to check the power of tech. Giant's it focuses mostly on acquisitions to prevent huge companies from buying potential competitors and it would force companies that control more fifty percent of a single market to prove that an acquisition would not reduce competition. Here's senator club shar. We all know that misinformation has been rampant on social media and it is greatly. Set us back. But there's another much more insidious problem and that is that any company that was starting to come and do cool things got bought and i think maybe you could look at this legislation as basically a reply to mark zuckerberg's email when he said about they're looking at what's happened instagram. These businesses are nascent but the networks established. The brands are already meaningful. And get this. And if they grow to a large scale they could be very disruptive to us. Google has ninety percent market share. Right now they are literally taking on a government of a major country in australia when the prime minister says hey we're gonna start making you guys pay for content and they say back. No you're not we're going to withdraw from your market and you'll have no search engine and a big part of this. It sounds like is funding these agencies right making sure that the ftc which is charged with a lot of this actually has some teeth exactly and of a numbers can't lie the ftc in nineteen eighty at one thousand seven hundred nineteen employees by twenty eighteen down to one thousand one hundred two. You cannot take on the biggest companies. The world has ever known trillion dollar companies with bandaids and duct tape. And that's why senator grassley has join me on a portion of this bill to up the fees on megamerger so we can put in over one hundred million dollars to each agency so they can actually do their job and this isn't just about tech. There's only to cat food. Companies that control most of the market. There's only two online travel agencies. You think you're getting all their choices. Go look at. Who owns them. And as john oliver closed in a segment on his. And if this all makes you wanna die good luck. Because the casket market is controlled by three companies which actually sadly no one purchase the other. It's down to
EU Decision on AstraZeneca's Covid-19 Vaccine Expected Today
"European regulators will decide today whether to approve the astrazeneca oxford corona virus vaccine for use in the eu. It's a big moment for the union. European countries have been lagging behind in their vaccination rollout compared to the uk and the us one of the reasons for that is the eu had ordered more doses of the astra zeneca vaccine the the pfizer biontech vaccine which was approved in december. They'd been hoping this new approval would get them up to speed but even before that happens there have been complications. Astrazeneca has told the e you it won't be able to fulfil its order right away and now more shortages could be on the horizon to discuss the situation. I'm joined now by the wall street. Journal's boy on panchev ski from berlin. Glad you're here boy on hi there mark boy on. Why is this shortage emerging. So what's happening is this. The european union doesn't seem to have ordered enough. Those is from the companies that kind of in the vaccine in the race to put a vaccine to market. And not only that but now it happens so that astrazeneca which developed a vaccine together with to oxford university seems to have had a problem in its supply chain and it saying econ deliver the original amount does is there were promised for for the first quarter of this year and these two things together have basically created a lack of supply for the european union. And now they are simply not enough shots for for all the people that need to receive them boy on. What is the response from astra zeneca. We heard from an e you commissioner. Recently who expressed tremendous dissatisfaction. Yes well there has been actually a bit of a war of words between the european union national governments and the european commission which which speaks for the european union and on one side and astra astrazeneca the pharmaceutical giant on the other astrazeneca denies that dave violated contractual obligations. They're saying they would been deliver. What they are meant to be delivering. But they have a bit of a hiccup related to a contractor in belgium and therefore they won't be able to meet the target but they're not saying that they are breaking commitments in law and that's the debate between the two sides. The you saying you know you. You've said you'll do this. You have an obligation to do that. The contract we haven't seen it is not public It's confidential and there has been talk now that the contract would be published so we can all see what's actually written in the contract and who is actually honoring mets or not. Can you way the company kind of rejects the european byu. That is done something wrong. Essentially and they're basically in a nutshell saying this is a normal part of this. This huge complex effort to produce hundreds of millions dozes for the whole world in in a ongoing pandemic boy on as that discussion is taking place. What's happening across europe to deal with this well essentially. There's a bit of a political backlash now in some countries of the european union notably in the most populous country germany because it has become apparent that there are not enough those this of vaccines of any kinds against coronavirus in the immediate term and that essentially means that people will who are vulnerable will not be able to be To get the job and be protected he immediately and that means also that the lockdowns were might be prolonged that the restrictions and the measures that we have in place in europe will will loss longer than people have perhaps hope for. There's so much they can do. Essentially what they could do is they could order more dozes from the companies. That have a vaccine that has been authorized by regulators. And so far we've got. As of friday. Essentially three companies astrazeneca is most likely to be authorized in europe. Then we have pfizer and biontech and we have modern. So what the the choice for the european union's toward more is now the problem with that. Is that everyone's those so you if you whoever orders now will be at the back of the queue. there's global q. Of nations or waiting for supplies and and some of them are huge. Markets such as the united states such as great britain and in the case of zenica india. And so on. So that won't be easy and and there will be slight delay in delivering. Whatever new orders might might be placed
Mask Suppliers Want to Save N-95s for the People Who Need Them Most
"It feels like forever but it's only been about ten months. Since protective face masks became on vote or legally mandated depending on where you are last april the cdc recommended that people wear face coverings in public and retailers scrambled to meet the demand suddenly stores from abercrombie to wedding dress. Outfitter beholden were stocking their shelves with masks. But of course the face coverings vary widely in terms of effectiveness from very good at stopping the spread of covid to pretty terrible medical grade. In ninety five masks are considered. The most protective. They stop around ninety five percent of small particles from reaching the wearer's nose and mouth the least effective that would be those thin fabric buffs that people pull up around their faces. Sorry runners those face coverings are just not doing the trick. Double layered cloth face masks fall somewhere in between so in ninety. Five masks are the best. But they're in short supply last april the three company a handful of smaller competitors were producing about fifty million in ninety five masks month according to the wall street journal but with doctors nurses and other medical staff relying on in ninety five fifty million a month just wasn't keeping up with growing demand and now a steady rise in cases plus a new strain of the corona viruses driving that demand higher well a few manufacturers think they found a solution masks that are effective and relatively easy to make and targeted to the general population that leaves in ninety. Five's for the medical workers who need them. Honeywell which has been churning out in ninety five since the beginning of the pandemic has introduced a new washable mask. that's woven from polyester nylon and spandex. It comes with twelve replaceable filters made from the same material. That's found in in ninety five and it runs about thirty dollars. The wall street journal reported the three m company is started focusing on masks for everyday customers. They've made a stretchy reusable mask that's about as effective as an in ninety five. The new york city fire department said it would outfit. It's firefighters three m's new masks to avoid cutting into the city's dwindling stockpile of in ninety five's smaller companies like outdoor research have gotten in on the game two. They usually make alpine climbing gear but last year started producing both medical grade and use masks like they're stretchy mask. The comes with a set of replaceable filters that one will run you around. Twenty one dollars. You'd think companies devoted to stopping the spread of a deadly virus. Might not be thinking so much about direct competition. And you'd be right kind of three m and honeywell or two of around sixty mask outfitters. That have entered into an information sharing group. That's protected from antitrust scrutiny. The go share production pricing and distribution information. That gets more masks into the hands of more people faster. They may be working together. But don't let any of these companies catch trying to pass off their products as your own. Three m has sued a florida company. That produced counterfeit n ninety five masks with three m logo and tried to sell them to hospitals at a markup. That obviously did not sit well with three m or the hospital system. That bought the masks which may or may not work in protecting people from the virus.
Why Now Is the Time for Infrared Photography
"I have one two three walks. That i take daily in every time i head out the door. I have a camera with me hoping to capture something new and unique. These walks important because my jobs as a photographer have all been crushed by the virus. And i haven't traveled for work since march twenty twenty so each day. I hope to see something new to record and possibly share with others in lately each day. I've been disappointed. So one of my friends herald is a big fan of infrared photography and he's shown me a lot of different things that you can do with it to go beyond what i've dabbled with the years so i go all right. This is kind of exciting. So i decided to revisit. What's happening in. I are and to tell you the truth. What's going on right now. Blew my mind. It did in the me excited about my daily walks again now. The big leap that i took this time. And i'm gonna talk about a pun intended the full spectrum of photography In a few minutes here because you can start versus simply. I done that. And it's very satisfying and then there are more options and more options more options and each time you go to that next set of options everything gets a bit more exciting but in the beginning any of it is exciting. Believe especially compared to probably which you've been doing or haven't been doing lately the big leap that i took was guinea my hands on a olympics. Emt mark three that had been converted to full spectrum by kalari vision now. Kalari vision is a company There about three companies. You know three big name companies. That are doing these infrared. Conversions and kalari vision is my favorite of the three. I have a camera by them. I've talked with them. I mean these are terrific folks and they really know what they're doing and all you have to do is click on the link in the site and you can go over there in you know read All sorts of background information really understand what's going on with infrared photography learn about all the filters learn about all the cameras you know by converted cameras. Get your camera converted. I mean it just goes on. And on and i'll go into more of that right now but when i referred to kalari vision that is the company that is doing the work you know for the gear that i'm using and they provide the filters that i use with that gear so getting this ten mark three converted to full spectrum camera just opened up this whole new world for me beyond what i had experienced before with. Ira photography because by using different filters a different points in the wavelength I was able to create completely different effects for example now on i take those daily walks over familiar territory which i'm doing still right because things haven't really changed to tell you the truth. It's like i'm in a different world each day on monday. I can shoot with a seventy two filter for stunning. I are black and white photography and then on tuesday take the same walk with the i. r. chrome filter and get something completely different this delicious world of complimentary oranges in blues. So every day is new. Thanks to photography. And now i'm excited. I'm excited i'm excited to go on the walk. I'm excited thinking about okay. How am i going to approach today. And because you don't know how certain things are going to look until you actually look at them through the camera. It's like this adventure in. You have like this magic set of glasses to unlock the view into this different world. And sometimes i'm very surprised but what i see. Sometimes you can kind of anticipate a little bit. What you're gonna see but every time it is then fresh and exciting. Now this backup a little bit on you know getting started with. I are so you can start small and ease into i r or go big with the converted camera and then you know there's like lots of options in between what i'm going to do now is give you five helpful tips about. I are photography to help you. Kinda shape your approach right now anyway and then you can plot your path forward after that but kind of help you figure out where to start right now with this if you are indeed interested in it. Here's the first thing you can test an existing camera for i our sensitivity. Some cameras just right out of the box are more sensitive to the i. R. part of the spectrum then other cameras. Which is you know the i parts of the higher end of the spectrum. I have like for instance one of those. It is a older fuji film. X twenty is just a regular x twenty s a little Range finder camera. That will super popular when it was out because it was small enough to put in your pocket but you know it packed some really nice kind of professional level features in it so. I've always liked this camera. In fact i believe it was the first fujifilm's digital camera i own so one of the delights with this camera is that it also has pretty decent i are sensitivity
NYSE Says Again It Will Delist Three Chinese Telecom Stocks
"The trump administration is in its final days. But that doesn't mean that they're not still pressing ahead with their aggressive china policy when it comes to tech president trump has signed an executive order banning transactions with aunt groups ali pay tencent's wechat pay and q. Q. as well as five other chinese payment apps quoting reuters lee order argues that the united states must take aggressive action against developers of china software applications to protect national security it tasks the commerce department with defining which transactions will be banned under the directive within forty five days and targets tencent holdings q. q. And we chat pay as well quote by accessing personal electronic devices such smartphones tablets and computers chinese connected software applications can access and capture vast swaths of information from users including sensitive personally identifiable information and private information. The executive order states such data collection quote would permit china to track the locations of federal employees and contractors and build dossiers of personal information the document ads and quote so as i've said several times when it relates to the subject i still haven't developed a definitive opinion about this whole tech cold war with china. Smart people. I know really do believe that. China's tech ambitions are set to the us's dominance in various ways and so must be meaningfully countered the problem. I'm having though is at least these last few years. The trump administration in my opinion hasn't put together a coherent argument about what they're doing. Or why so. It's hard for me to even form an opinion. That's not me being political. That's just me being someone in the tech industry that feels this whole posture. Vis-a-vis china by the government has been maddeningly inconsistent. So far case in point after pressure from the us government. The new york stock exchange said it would delist the stocks of three chinese companies china mobile china telecom and china unicom in order to satisfy an executive order imposing restrictions to prevent american companies and individuals from investing in companies identified as being affiliated with the chinese military. Now that was always the plan they were going to list these three companies and then two days ago the nyse reverse course and said it would no longer dealers those companies now today. they're reversing the reverse quoting cnbc. The exchange reversed that decision on monday causing much confusion treasury secretary mnuchin told the exchange that he disagreed with the original reversal. A senior administration official told. Cnbc's eamon jabar's the mis's said the latest reversal was due to new guidance. From treasury's office of foreign assets control that said people in the us could not engage in certain transactions with the three companies as of next monday trading of the three securities will be suspended at four pm eastern time on monday the exchange said and quote. See what. I mean confusing as all get out isn't it. China mobile is a one hundred billion dollar company. I believe they've been listed on the nyse for more than a decade. As i said before around these issues capitalism requires a clear set of rules that everyone involved in the great game of capitalism can understand if you don't know what the parameters of engaging and capitalism are then that's not capitalism so i guess one of the bigger questions going into the new year does president biden have as big an ax to grind with china tech as president trump. Did and will we get a more coherent position. Vis-a-vis chinese tech
Should I plan an in-person event in 2021?
"Freddie wants around her own in-person conference for her blog. baking blog in twenty twenty one. Do i think she should do that. It's a big question. And i'm gonna give you two scenarios one. I definitely think you should not do a conference in twenty twenty one and the second scenario i would say with these caveats. It may not be a bad idea. So when or what scenario do i think. It's a bad idea to run a conference in person conference in two thousand twenty one here. We go. well i. I want to say that we are not out of the woods. Okay even the vaccine is on. Its way it's going to take a wild. For most of the countries around the world's population to be vaccinated we fully vaccinated. And even with the vaccination they say you know masks social distancing is still going to be in which makes it very hard for in person conferences so if your conference is more than fifty people i would say i wouldn't do it because is going to be hard to find a venue where you can social distance one half meters away from each other with people that are you know one hundred people in a conference two hundred. That's a very tough. If you're attracting people outside your local area if this is just maybe a local meet up or maybe just within your stay or your city I would say okay. Maybe you know that way you can kind of control the numbers and you don't have to worry about travel but if you're attracting people from across your country as well as a from overseas and other countries flying and getting on a plane and you know traveling internationally is still going to be very difficult in two thousand twenty one which will hinder the success of your conference. There are a lot of variables that will be out of your control for your conference. It'd be successful. Conferences are about socializing and getting to know people and high fives. You know that's just not going to jive with covid. Nineteen even as we roll into twenty twenty one. I think this is going to be a very interesting year. Because we're going to have to transition into maybe what is going to become our normal the first three months. We're not going to two different from twenty twenty. It's gonna take some time as we ramp up and have everybody vaccinated now if you have a small conference a small meet up less than fifty people. It's in a local area. You can social distance and you're planning to do it at the end of two thousand eight hundred q four then i would say okay. Even if that's the case i would definitely make sure your venue will refund you. If you're unable to do because of code restrictions have an easy system to refund tickets to your you know conference attendees if whatever equipment are swag that you you can use in you know the next year or the next time you can do the conference i would take all these precautions the issue with a conference that you need a lot of lead time to sell the tickets especially if you are trying to sell over one hundred tickets so you need to announce a venue a date well in advance three months in advance at least and with covert. It's hard to plan. This is why my gut reaction was like. Hey if you can avoid running conference in two thousand twenty one if you can do it virtually if he could do a summit if you can do something in twenty twenty two i would feel a lot. More confident That you'd have a lot more in your control to succeed now. I've seen a lot of in person. Conferences pivot to doing virtual some. Its virtual conferences Online and they actually did a pretty decent job. A lot of people have enjoyed online conferences because there are less expensive. They're easy to run. They're easier to attend a lot easier for you to get people to attend because there's no barrier of travel you know even if there was no covid so you're going to get more attendees Leads more sales all that kind of stuff. You can make an interactive. You can make fun. You can really do your best and by the way as your first time conference. Doing a virtual conference online might be a good way for you to just work out the kinks. It's a good. Mvp of in person conference.

How Sports Trading Cards Went from Hobby to Asset Class
"So dan. i want you to help. Explain exactly how wild this year has been for sports cards with an example and that example that sticks out to me and shocks me every time i consider it. Is this record setting. Mike trout card. Can you tell me a little bit about the card itself. So it's a it's a two thousand nine bowman chrome super factor dan. Hey ducky is a writer and researcher for espn and a card collector. Himself it's got autograph on a autograph on grated. Basically there are three companies professionals Authenticator beckett s g c they grade. How perfect on a scale of one to ten a. Carter's so this might trump card is a nine so it's pretty. It's pretty close to perfect but the autograph is greeted at ten. So it's really close to perfect card can awesome. It's a trap route card also on top of that. It's a one of one so there is only one of these in existence yet. It's so interesting because mike trout in public is like a semi anonymous celebrity like a lot of fans casual fans and sports. Even don't really know him. But this card this one of one card with the perfect autograph. What did actually go for went for nine. hundred million. A new record has been set for the most valuable baseball card in history. Somebody paid three point. Nine million dollars for this mike trout rookie card. I know that when joe maddon was confronted with the information that he had a player who's card solta that much giving like. How much does the mona lisa goes for. Wow i'm into art. That puts him right up there with the mona. lisa's self. For what what is anything by a davinci or wow that is. That's that's pretty. That's pretty phenomenal. And it's actually. It's like yeah. I mean that's disappear question. And what was the previous record holder in terms of the most valuable card that had ever been sold at auction. The previous holy grail. Was you know the the honus wagner keys who six said turn of the century the twentieth century like early nineteen hundreds heart on. It's such a lower behind it. That's not happening with mike trump there. There's no incredible backstory to have his card exists. It's it's modern. It's not easy to obtain but it's not it's not like tobacco card that was pulled from from production really what happened to wagner was once thought is that wagner didn't like that he was being used his likeness is being used to sell tobacco the kids so he objected a pulled the card from production and that was that the other less known school of thought is that wagner he wouldn't be compensated for his likeness so he objected because he wouldn't be paid and the facts the truth which is a i like this story better it would be the like the earliest flexing of brand autonomy. It is remarkable what you say though the difference between his honus wagner card which does like looking at it. I'm looking at it right now on my screen. It's like this historical american artifacts that reminds me of like a daguerreotype from like the civil war or something it looks important and ancient and the trout card. The fact that this object can be worth more than any other thing that came before in modern times and the guy who sold this. Mike trout card dan for this terrifyingly large amount is a man named ken golden. So tell me a little bit more about him. What's the business that guy runs. Golden is ken. Golden golden auctions diammonium. Sins loan out nike sneaker. How much does that they work can in your eyes to me. It's definitely a six-figure iconic piece it is the most famous pair of sneakers in the world. Then he remains arguably the most renowned auction house for remember billion sports

It just means like connecting laying in bed together whether you do the deed or you not do the deed washington views important. It could just be a conversation. It's tibia a recap of the day. I think that's important. Yeah and then so. That's really been a trend. Yes really i mean it kind of makes sense like you know. I do like having someone next to me though but every once in a while maybe like. Hey every monday like you don't sleep in bed posed but the whole trend of this being a thing. I mean that's just dividing now at. That doesn't seem yeah. That's putting a bigger wage and relationships and monogamy. I i feel like because even sometimes it says it's those things where you go to bed and just knowing the other person's right next to you otherwise it might feel like an apartment. What i mean if you go to the other room and you have this whole other set up and every night. You're pretty much doing your own routine. Beggars feel weird. That's why i take a lot of comfort in her being there. That's why i say. I don't like sleeping alone because i really liked looking over having her next to in but to underscore my point architectural digest. This year called the hottest new trend in homebuilding double master bedroom's. Wow what a fresh topic wouldn't even know. We were going to get onto interesting it. Yeah definitely interesting. But then when i say that i i could fall asleep. Cut like laying on top of you. I love cuddling and falling asleep. But that's not really your thing. So i've kind of morphed into like okay like you can go then if you want. If i can't come fall asleep and you i'm out. I wanna starfish. That's so interesting. What is this according to a twenty seventeen survey from the national sleep foundation. Almost one in four married couple sleep in separate bedrooms. I don't i bet it's probably like because there. I will say this. I if you snort i could not sleep in the same bureaucrats you like. I like you have to leave one hundred percent because that would just be or if you. I don't know if i've azero tolerance policy when it comes to sewing. Okay mr use norway more. Like but if i do. It's because i'm really really really really really tired. Yeah do you have you snore.

Yesterday's a jack boone's who's a professor in the department of ece fisa goal in planetary sciences unto colorado boulder. He is also vice president images for academic affairs in blue sage for disuse system system. Jack while thank you. Joe is good to be with you. Thanks for doing this so you at your team. On deeply involved in the upcoming nasa missions to the moon including The designed to place radiofrequency absolutely on the far side of the moon and be kevin deemed really back there for almost fifty years. Now i know that china s landed. I was actually looking at some photographs that just gained today from From their lander. I israel in india. Almost got there but Fleas land properly. And so so. What's our interest. What's sudden interest in going back to the moon after fifty years. Yeah i don't know that. I would characterize as a sudden interest i think on the part of the science community and really the exploration community interest has been there for a while but what has changed in the last decade is the cost doing missions And the accessibility of the moon in this new era in which we have now. Private companies like spacex and like the blue origin company. Jeff bezos company They've put considerable private resources in developing new rockets of with reusability to lower the launch costs and also technology which was extreme in the nineteen sixties to try to get to the moon. All hannity vetted from scratch now is relatively straightforward at gill as you mentioned Even a small countries like israel Private companies have contracts with nasa to fly payloads. Now it's it's it's realizable to Envision going to the moon at a relatively modest cost certainly in comparison to the sixties and seventies. Yes so that's a. It's a very interesting phenomenon. Now it's it's almost like a business model question. Space is Blue blue horizon blue origin. Laura gin and that is another company. Lakers peterson things. Well lockheed you ally the united launch alliance which is the lockheed and boeing Company as well they all have these new generation of launch vehicles that are capable of going to so nasa in some sense outsourcing Some of the transportation right to so captain made a selection or are they going to do essentially multiple companies. Do it the the plan is to have monk multiple companies just like the commercial crew program To the space station there's boeing and spacex And for the case of the moon for the un crude landers that Landers that are just carrying payloads nasa has identified a out a dozen companies To be able to transport a payloads to the moon and at the same time. They're also undergoing competition right now. They selected three companies to design as part of a public private partnership the next generation of human landers. So that's the same. Mostly the same group that has spacex blue origin and the third one is is dynamic which is a company in huntsville alabama rate. So it's nassar's goal here is They are they going to take contracts from other other countries do send pedal to the moon in these companies. The the way this is working now is nasa is buying services so they're no longer buying rockets or landers which they will then own operate Instead the philosophy is To buy a ride for example a seat On a human land or or by space for a payload so these companies that are responsible for indemnifying Making sure they have a proper insurance for losses They take A bit of the risk and and then proceed along those lots now. What that means is that the companies then they own the intellectual property they owned landers they rockets they own the The other transportation devices. So that means they can sell seats. They can sell payloads to for example a european space agency Or the russian space agency or individual companies. That might want to puts a payload on the moon Investigation in this kind of a lower gravity environment so it's much more entrepreneurial than what we had before and it lowers the cost to the taxpayer for doing all these things by the artist program. Which is the new human programs. The moon the Recently released cost to get the first woman in the next man to the moon by twenty twenty four is a factor of ten less than the apollo program. Yeah it's interesting. I remember jack I was involved a little bit on the economic side of the next generation. Space legal program two thousand two thousand one two thousand two timeframe and this was a program was supposed to replace the shuttle and we did not go forward with it and i guess so. What was the arranged with the russian system to get their astronauts into space station. Yeah the the problem was that you might recall The shuttle accident that occurred in two thousand three And then president. George w bush declared that the shuttle really wasn't safe And that needed to be replaced and it took a while. We're still in the process of of fully replacing it. The last shuttle launch was twenty eleven If i remember correctly so in the meantime in order to get to the space station What we did is contract with the russians to use their soyuz spacecraft to go back and forth the space station so we. What we did is the buy seats. Those seats cost about seventy five or eighty million dollars so they weren't cheap but eventually got us back and forth. He said before we get the details of the Admission stack help philisophical question so way we have technology advancing the about conflict. Television's really taking off machines. Getting lot smarter What does sort of the basis for sending humans Could be not accomplished thing that human could do with machines if that's a good question i'm glad you answered that you ask that question because Excuse me i think what we're looking for now is is Really different mode for doing work on services like the moon or mars. Excuse me in that. We unlike apollo you had a single astronaut. Geologists such as astronaut harrison schmitt on all seventeen doing classic field geology. With a shovel to now advance unit twenty-first-century. We're gonna to do. Is i like to say we're going to bring Silicon valley with us to the moon. So we're going to bring advanced robotics. Be telly operated. That will use a machine. Learning artificial intelligence And will team with the astronauts so that they will these. These rovers advance scouting. They will identify interesting places and then the role of the astronaut is to make critical decisions on what to investigate What the samples. Look like i. i still think it's true. I've been told from my colleagues who are geologists stromer But who are uninsured. Scientists in that the difference for example between. Let's say the The curiosity rover on mars. And what it's been doing and having a human on mars that the work that the curiosity rover has done last seven years could be done in two days by geologists. a that's the difference and to also bring back. You know better selected samples and so forth. So there's no replacing humans and that's not going to happen anytime soon but you you do your point being. You only wanna use humans when you actually have to. Because their time is valuable and they're expensive and also Walking around even on the surface of the moon is dangerous. Because the you know the a space where the asian micrometeorites another possible dangerous but going into this new environment. I think what we're going to be able to do is reduced risk and improved efficiency. The i don't remember the numbers but a human Mission is about ten x the cost of a non human mission. Obviously the the efficiency and like you say what begin out of it different but guess on the cost side. It's about the fact of a magnitude different you know. That's hard to say because robots still are very limited in what they can do. They're just so many things that only humans can do is a little bit of apples and oranges but yet you're probably right that on the ballpark about a factor of ten. Maybe even more. But there's also much more than a factor of ten improvement in efficiency. So you know. Those costs will balance out and obviously the advantage of a human is You know they've been. The unexpected happens in michigan learning in As long as you have heard of data to teach a machine but then the unexpected happens machines. noel exactly. The rover gets stuck. It suffers a mechanical problem. That If you have a human there at least in the vicinity can help fix it. And move orders you know i think about for example servicing of the hubble space telescope and that was done five times by human astronauts and The astronauts such as john grunsfeld did to the servicing missions was very clear that the telescope could not have been repaired in upgraded by anything other than humans because the tab the complexity of the task the ability to be able to get in and To make repairs Make on the spot. Decisions just You know there was no replacing that so hopefully humans have a few more years of Do i think we've got many years to tell you the truth. I think it's going to be you know in reading some of the literature. I think it's going to be a quite a long time if ever that. We have truly Intelligent self aware machines can operate with the same decision making kick be very good at repetitive calculations outstanding job of there but You know making creative innovative entrepreneurial. Decisions were We're nowhere close to that yet So i do that. A multiple missions being planned An international collaboration so he's the first one that is supposed to take off as leave. Yeah artists is the new name for the human missions to the moon Artemis in greek mythology was the sister of apollo The twin sister of apollo. She's the goddess of the moon. So that's very appropriate. Since nasa has already declared bet up for that first landing which nasa has been planning for twenty twenty four would Would have that first woman in the next man on the surface the first expedition by humans to the moon in the twenty first century. So optimistic applaud. Its name the program programming program. Yeah exactly right so so andrade damasio multiple things going on And so do we have sort of a space station like that is going to orbit the out. Yeah in fact. That's honored design. And we'll be under construction in the next few years has called the gateway lunar gateway. And it's it's not like the space station in the sense of being gigantic And being really limited to that single orbit the gateway is really more of a spacecraft is going to have a pulse in system using a new generation of solar electric bad is ion propulsion That will be piloted for potential for optometry use in going to mars. I have just a couple of modules that will be there it will be a place where astronauts coming from the earth on on the orion spacecraft which is a it plus the space launch system is a heavy lift vehicle that will take astronauts the moon they will dock at the gateway and then they will get into a reusable lander go to the surface. Come back in that lander and then the next crew that comes in will do the same thing so you don't throw everything away like we did during hollow in the nineteen sixties again. The reusability idea is Is key to keeping the costs down so so it is more dealer so can't be attached as as alright right. Ds change in the future. Cab edge more against it. We can in fact The japanese space agency jaksa recently committed to fly a module And nasa has invited others such as the russian space agency to think about them attaching A module as well so it definitely is modular. That way you can add habitats you can add laboratories And can can grow over time. But it's also the the idea is that it's going to be long duration spaceflight and it's away way from the earth's magnetic field so you've got the full range environment of what you would have going to mars. So i think nasa all also looks at. This is a prototype of the vehicle that would be sent to mars. Lucchese david some Conversations yet again. Remember that To go to mars you would rather start off. Start off from the moon. Is that still thinking or that. Exchange i don't think that's been decided but there's this potential real advantages of a loon. First of all launching from the moon versus the earth requires much less thrust. What what we call delta the. That's the change in velocity to Get off there. Because there's only one sixth gravity on the moon and secondly if we're successful in mining water from the minute we know now there's considerable amount of water at the polls of the moon That's hydrogen and oxygen. We can convert that potentially into rocket fuel. You wouldn't have to bring that from earth so the costs associated with launching some could be substantially reduced in doing this from the moon versus from your so people are actively working that right now and seeing if that might be the way to go i of think that might end up being How missions to To mars or undertaking so under optimus Are there plans to actually create a habitat a big enough habitat for people to stave or extended period of time. So nasa has designs. And once again i should mention this is. This is all international Insa is involved. The european space agency is involved in providing a module for the service module for the orion. It also will be working on the gateway. The canadian space agency is providing the robotic arm And the same will be true on the surface The idea is that the first few missions will of just get started That first nation in twenty twenty four is planned to go to the south pole of moon. Will we've never been to before and look at the water. Ice situation there but Over time by the end of the decade the expectation is that will have multiple habitats. And we'll have people staying there for long periods of time like the arctic station. It's run by the national science foundation. The mcmurdo station as called in which you have a number of scientists come in and visit for anywhere from a few weeks to staying for year here so salama but when the next generation space program was in progress space. Too big big project. I would imagine spacex Others cab this business plan so what's the clamps time Do that The gay yes. So it'll be somewhere between three and five days to get from the earth and you're right about. The tourism spacex already has a fide a japanese businessman. If i remember correctly who has bought a A ride not the surface of the moon but to orbit the moon on a spacex vehicle. Sometime in a in a few years but the it'll be in a three to five days to get to the gateway and then Another day to get down to the surface. So i fully expect by the end of the decade especially given the accessibility to the moon by the private sector and by isa companies That they will be selling seats to wealthy individuals to spend a A summer holiday on the moon is so if the if the gateway is expandable perhaps Taxpayers can make some money nasa. Well it might be. Yeah but but once again this is. The transportation for the most part is probably not going to be through nasa but by these individual companies who own their own rockets their spacecraft and now they will sell seats to to wealthy tourists. yeah and so You you mentioned the european space agency. You mentioned the canadian space agency of so. Is this like the space station. A larger collaboration or those are the three major ones. Yeah it is and you're right. There are Oh gosh there's probably a dozen or so. Companies countries rather involved in the international space station and nasa envisions this much the same thing And i to. I order all the countries that are involved in. The international space station have been invited to become involved with the gateway And so as i mentioned several have accepted with With enthusiasms others are still keeping that around and take a quick break jack. Benny come back to talk about the radio. Frequency of savitri on the far side of the more that you're designing you bet sounds good. This is a scientific sense. Podcast providing unscripted conversations bit leading academics and researchers on a variety of topics. You like to sponsor this podcast. Please reach out to in full at scientific sense dot com back Jack you're talking about upcoming missions to the moon Some of the manned mission some of some of the technology that you're sending up there there is a gateway bridges like the space station but attested propulsion its zone. Sorta are based entity source. And it's more dealer things could be attached to it. That may be subject is imploding. Creating that a launchpad so to speak to go to mars perhaps habitats that a large announced a mining for water mighty for hydrogen and other things and so he the program is called autonomous. So could be portal light program and underneath optimists. There are various things being planned right. So what are the The primary objectives all of those radius approved betas projects. I should say under under optimus. Yeah we'll go. let me let me start off by just looking at the difference with The apollo program because the apollo program ended fairly abruptly once the political goals were reached and it was never Really a sustainable program so Nasa and i think all of the governmental space agencies are looking for is for arsonist to be the beginning of a sustained presence on the moon and in space and using the moon as a stepping stone for human and robotic exploration of the solar system including getting the mars so the philosophy of artists is really quite different. So you're there the stay So you need to figure out how to live off the land. So that does mean as you're saying mining's water being able to grow crops being able to manufacture Equipments the habitats themselves from the From the of the regular or the soil material so using the the kind of advanced manufacturing capability three d. printing Electrolysis so that's a really different approach. And it means that what will be worked on is not just get there but a flag in the ground rather in full of soil and return on instead it means You know how do you figure out how to be there for the long haul so that means than learning how to to excavate how to build How to really maintain a life in a in a certain sense of independence. Part of the reason you want to do all that is because that's exactly what's going to be

"A relationship and then jupiter. How long were you guys dating for. You met dylan. So i guess we'd been dating. I think right around six months or like five and a half six months was when i first met dylan and then how did you guys meet jupiter. I met at a play party Here in san sex party for those. Who are ben and kate. Sex was one of batting cage. Yeah then cake all back. But i was there with sean sean and i were both at that party. Okay i was gonna say loosley initiated in the sort of play party scene in We before we met ahead of several mutual friends. I was pretty uninitiated with the dynamics of colliery and how those sort of open relationships functioned especially in sort of play party environment and so jubran hit off the started up and then like sean walked in and i was like shit. I'm in deep trouble right now. But he was a fine. I was like oh. That's really cool. I guess in kind of a very basic crude way. Kind of kicked off a series of Like discoveries for me about what. I wanted In dynamics sexual partners what. I wanted in relationships end You know how. I just sort of wanted to treating general so that was definitely a door. Knock down so jupiter win you sean are in this relationship. Where you guys labeling each other as like boyfriend girlfriend or primaries what was it so we were using the terms partner at the time. We are both using the terms boyfriend and girlfriend also. Frosty were very interchangeable I don't always use those terms as interchangeably like i don't think donut. I ever referred to each other as boyfriend and girlfriend ever call each other partners That was like a specific choice. We made that Right for rs. With dillon with sean. And i was like what my wife from your partner. Whenever a we don't we both shot subscribe to and don't also a all subscribe to non hierarchical polly emery which specifically eliminates things like primary secondary things that stem that like rates. Implicit like someone has status. That is fixed or like takes priority over anyone else's so we didn't ever give anything like that which was part of kind of honestly. What made space for dylan to come into. My life was the fact that we didn't have the i believe actually on my first day. He's like so like shawn's like your primary was like woah. While i don't do that wet my whole he was like smoothing a little bit. So if you sh- so dylan. Sean did not have a sexual relationship cracked right okay. So what is the difference than new. Explain this a little further of what makes you guys a triad between the three of you versus just you being partners with the two of them. Yeah so for me. Like i feel like sexuality is only one aspect of connection relationships. And i would almost say dylan sean. Between them pretty much every they love each other. Okay doors although gloves me. What do you think initially sure doing. appeared in in in in the seeing among jupiter. And i would how affect you in my relationship and initially. I heard that are lose time. That i had previously been able to spend with jupiter. It wasn't when we develop the relationship. It wasn't anger or jealousy or upset. As you are.

Grab or where we ask our audience to take some action and Stacey as as consultants for that I'm going to kick it to you to talk about some important work. You're doing to solve some problems. We talked about today. Well, thank you very much for my aged space in this chair I will tell you number one. We need folks to complete the twenty twenty cents a as much as it is critical that we vote this year. We have to remember that the census is the data input that decides the next decade of our lives. If you know communities who didn't get the PPA. They needed. If you know families that are struggling to send their kids back to school, because the classrooms are overcrowded, those are all choices that were made based on twenty ten cents. This results we fight about the vote. We have to fight about the census because the Republicans namely trump. They're trying to weaponize it. You're trying to use it to really race. The story of who we are as Americans, please fill out. The twenty twenty cents go to Mike. Twenty Twenty Census Dot Gov to sign up, and if you want more information about how you can help, get the census that in your community go to my organization fair. Count- dot Org for more information. I'm GonNa Plug Stacey's book again. Because it's really good, so the book is our time is now and the reason I think it fits in grab. Your is because it. It really is a great guide. For Real context and real life examples about these fights that we're having every day, so that's why I think it's just really also on brand with majority fifty four. It's not just here the fights and here the talking points, and it's also not just here's my experience with it. It's real stories that are really relatable and sharable of a a real people mostly in Georgia, so I think people will really be able to put it to good use. y'All forgiven. Now I can sleep well now. I can sleep well. I just want to thank stacy before I. Kick it back to.

"At this point usually we give out some awards, but given the stature of our co host. We didn't want to bring you down with our juvenile antics towards the end of. These podcasts Robbie interrupt for second acknowledge. Can I acknowledge all the people who tweeted at us this week to say that Lindsey Graham finally won his namesake award. Just say look. We don't have the time to go over this week, but yes like we're. We're GONNA. Make up a plaque or something for him. We we acknowledge it, so instead of the awards what we're doing is we're rolling out our mailbag and so as a reminder to our listeners. Listeners If you have a question, call our hotline and leave your question in the form of a voicemail, and just to remind you that number is, it's five, zero, eight, six, eight, seven, two, five, eight, nine, five, eight, six, eight, seven, two, five, eight nine, and we'll both tweet out the number again. Just has it and we're going to start this week with a question from an Italia. WHO's my hometown of Staten Island I my name is. Calling from Staten Island. The podcast I have a lot of Republican friends as expected in Staten Island and I find that. The ones who are more levelheaded, who I can actually have a normal conversation with when I try to ask what they like about trump, or what would make them vote for trump again as most of them are considering doing their antlers, usually the economy and they point to unemployment numbers specifically, and I was just wondering if you could talk a little about what makes the economy good or bad? Unemployment numbers, or if there are other factors that we should consider, and what has been happening in trump was elected in twenty up until I guess. Have, you read this year I. Don't think it's really fair to discuss covert, or these wouldn't really make an impact on my discussion with Publicans, because they see that you know some extreme issue that no one could expect to have been dealing with than any negative results from the economy or not consult so appreciate anything. You can do to discuss this topic. Thank you so Natalia I would begin by saying that trump created very little. He inherited. inherited a booming economy from brock. Obama and he grew on top of that. which is what we want, you want economy that continues to grow when you want successive presidents to build on the benefits that they inherit and given that Barack Obama didn't inherit anything good. What he left behind was fantastic, but to the point of using unemployment numbers. The problem with that is sometimes people have two or three of those jobs, and so it's not. Not The employment level it alone. It's looking at the wages that people are earning from those jobs, and it's also looking behind the numbers at WHO's simply given up a both Jason and I come from states where you had unemployment that was structured around the fact that you have permanently unemployable people. They don't have the skills, and they don't have job opportunities, and so it is a it is an important metric to us, but it cannot. CanNot be the only metric that's like deciding that you can bake a loaf of bread because you got flower. You don't have east if you don't have salt. If you don't have an oven, it's pretty much just the lump, and so we need to know that a really robust economy requires more than one input. Sometimes, it's helpful to ask people Do you think it's harder for you to be successful than it was for your parents? And to redirect the conversation, not to current indicators, but too big structural change. Do you think the systems fair because you got two candidates? One of them, says the systems fair, and it works great and the other the Challenger says. Hey, this system could be more fair. I like that because it allows you to. Even if they wanted by all the indicators, you say okay well. Maybe the economy was good but was it fair like? Could we have actually done more with a good economy, so they just go bigger? And just to add to this and I have no doubt that. A sending somebody a economic paper from professors at Princeton is not going to do the trick here, but just so you know Natalia up. There was actually a a paper from Alan blinder and Mark Watson at Princeton, twenty thirteen that looked at Republican presidents for Democratic Presidents and GDP growth and unquestionably GDP growth unemployment. All these figures are better under Democrats and Republicans that being said. The president controls the economy in the short term like that like if I'm being fair, it's not that simple, but I'll just close by saying the very premise of the questions that your friends are asking. You is a little wrong. In the sense that the covert response is the biggest economic issue of our time, and then the president's utter failure to deal with it is wrecking our economy right now and so I'll be like look. That's a world. We don't live in anymore. It's like arguing about. About Unicorns like we live in a world where covert is the most important economic issue and their most people, even a lot of trump supporters. They acknowledged that presidents fumbling this issue. It's a great point. One other thing we wanted to mention is that after we talked about reopening of schools last week, we got a few voicemails of people saying Hey, the teacher perspective would be really helpful on this. Teachers are feeling like we're being tossed under the proverbial school bus is the political sacrifice so? Certain individuals can point to the opening of school as part of the economic success against Kobe nineteen. So if our nation wants to open schools that our nation should be willing to pony up and pay the funding needed to make sure every student is guaranteed a safe environment for them for their family and for..

"Money back and cover everyone, but now that we're in the second period. You have to put in ten percent. If you put in ten percent, the federal government will put in ninety percent, and because all of our tax taxpayers, the point is that we're getting our money back that we have paid into the system for decades, and the state has to come up with ten percent. You put in a dime. They'll give you ninety cents and endorse a for example half. A million people suddenly get healthcare. That's what we're arguing about. no-brainer yeah, Jason on the no brainer piece on the moral part of this. When we're talking to people who don't necessarily share our political ideology, there's sort of a ladder of responsibility of government right? It seems like Medicaid should be at the bottom of this ladder. It's kids. A lot of Medicaid is kids, not just kids, but it covers a large percentage of kids in poverty. What would you be saying Cross City, you know? Whatever we call them at the table to be like. Let's just start with the children were actually. I did that in in the legislature. Because it is one of the most effective arguments, I, I did an amendment when we were having this fight back in two thousand and nine that took healthcare away from legislators until they extended it to in, so they extended S. Japan and Medicaid to kids, and it was. It was one of the only successful amendments. Amendments to get out of the State House because it put them in a bit of a spot, so I think it's not just politically, but also personally with people you talk to one of the most effective arguments, the other I think we should be making a lot more often and stacey was was talking about a minute ago. is because a lot of the people who support the Republican side tend to come from rural areas hospitals in rural areas across. Across Georgia and Missouri and other states are closing when Medicaid doesn't expand and not only. Is that a pretty big deal? Because if you have a heart attack in hospital near, you is closed. You're more likely to die, but it's also a big deal. If you don't have a heart attack, because if you go to rural or really, you know semi rural parts of of states in the Midwest and the south. What you see is that you'll ask people what's. What's the biggest employer here and they will always say the hospital so when the hospital closes, it can literally kill people, and it can kill the economy of the town and so stacey. We've been greeted with news. A little bit of evidence that the Biden campaign is starting to invest in some of the various states that we're talking about. Texas, Georgia given that you are our resident Georgia expert is is Biden smart to invest in Georgia Kenny Wind Georgia. Yes. Maybe it was a little more. I'm glad. Rising. I had to give it a lot of consideration before I responded. So the state of play Georgia. State in the nation sixteen electoral votes. Two. Thousand, Sixteen Hillary Clinton, came within five points of beating Donald Trump with nominal investment in the state, two thousand eighteen I put a little bit more money in I closed the gap to one point, four percent, and that was despite running against the secretary of state. Who controlled the election. So you can ask for that anyway you want and I did at the beginning. And I greatly appreciate. So that was fifty, four, thousand, seven, hundred twenty three boats counting, so look forward to twenty twenty in July. We had the single highest tarmac in Primary for Democrats in Georgia history. We have two not one, but two Senate seats are up for grabs of the normal election, plus we have a special election for Kelly I hate black lives. Matter Slash is made money off of Covid Leffler and David. What am I doing here, purdue. So. Those people are grabs and we can take those seats. We have to competitive congressional seats. Leaving Bathroom took Newt Gingrich's. Inside seat, though we replace Gingrich with a black woman who has been fighting for a gun safety, and we have a to also take a the seventh congressional district, which is a suburban district. We came within four hundred votes of winning it into eighteen, and we have the opportunity flip the State House which means we would control redistricting along with Republicans for the first time in a decade, and we have the chance to allocate fourteen congressional districts fairly evenly, so was put into the pot. We also are state where when Iran and not. Not Win by fifty, four, thousand, seven, hundred twenty three votes, since that time seven hundred and fifty thousand people who were not registered or eligible to vote for me have now registered Georgia, forty five percent of them are under the age of thirty forty nine percent of them are people color, and in Georgia and most of the south races, the strongest predictor political leanings, the next one, and that will bucket is usually h so Joe Biden can win, and it makes sense that he's investing here because we deliver Electoral College Votes Senate. We help Cole. The set the house and we help prepare for the next decade, because as much as we are redoing the twenty sixteen election in two thousand twenty. We cannot forget Jason can tell you that we're also running the twenty ten election and hurt Missouri would hurt. Georgia would hurt north. Carolina would hurt. Florida was the inattention we paid to the twenty ten elections, and it is a rare occasion that a census occurs if the exact same time as a presidential and that we can really fix the maps. We can fix the future especially in Georgia, if Biden computer. We think you'll win.

"But we have worked to do. In too many ways Republican leaders have failed these votes. By being too mean and too cheap to expand medicaid. By jeopardizing rural hospitals for political game, they have put millions of Georgia families that risk and we could do better than that. And as much as I would like to go back in time and change the the course of that race we can't. So what should state and federal leaders be doing right now to protect vulnerable oversight of all? We need to recognize that healthcare is a human right, but it's also the basis of economic growth and economic strength. When you're workers physically can't do the job. Your economy suffers when you're. Hospitals can't afford to stay open especially if you live in. In rural communities you lose access to new jobs and in Georgia. We know that we create fifty thousand jobs simply by accepting the billions and federal aid that we've already paid for in part of the insanity of refusing Medicaid expansion is that it's not grounded in science. It's not grounded in math. It's not grounded in logic. It's basically just people being mean, and we know that it's meanness. Because Mike Pence expanded Medicaid. He is not a socialist net neither my. But Mike Pence sized that in a state that had a heavy urban population and a heavy rural population and wait for people who got sick that the best way to save your hospital. Save Your communities and build is to have healthcare and Medicaid was way to do it until I just think these are mean people. Somebody didn't give them something for Christmas or encircled here and particularly here in Georgia, it is the absence of logic when the Chamber of commerce and I agree wholeheartedly than the governor is wrong. First of all, say revie like I. Knew Stacy be the best. I Guess Co host because like she's the only person in national politics, just about like talking about stuff in a way that you could talk about it in your living room, but I'm going to stop my Stacey infomercial for a second and just go back to the topic, which is to piggyback on what she was saying about. The economic productivity that creates you know. We've been having this debate in Missouri for a long time, and now it's at the point where it's. We're one. One of the states where we've managed to get it on the ballot, and they decided Republicans decided to put it on the August ballot because they know it's really popular now and they don't WanNa have to have that fight in November but more than that. It's not just that it's become really popular that it's popular because people understand exactly what she was just saying, which is a direct return on investment for every dollar you put in to healthcare, you get a bunch of dollars back in state, productivity and economic productivity, so the analogy I always. Always use when I talk to people about this. Is that every time I hear a Republican politician complain about the amount of money. The state spins on healthcare. I say it sounds to me just as absurd as if a board of directors for an oil company were sitting around a big table, and they were like what's with all the money we spend on drilling. This is ridiculous. They wouldn't do that because they make money off oil after they drill for it and we make money as a state of healthcare after we spend money on it. It and Stacey for folks. Who are you know they're not people follow these policy debates. The outs may not even know necessarily the role of Medicaid in a place like George like why why? It really matters and when you say that the state was down money. What does that all mean folks who who weren't following the debate about whether to expand Medicaid, let's go back to the passage of the affordable care. act. The whole point was we had a lot of people in the United States millions of people who could not access healthcare president, Obama. Biden decided that they would solve a problem that we have been talking about for fifty years, and so they said look. We're going to put this thing in place. We're going to acknowledge that we have a workplace based healthcare system, so we're GONNA make certain that people get the policies they need for people who aren't getting it through work. We're going to have this thing called exchanges. You can go and buy your health insurance, but they acknowledged that there are some people who don't make enough money to pay for healthcare themselves and fifty years ago president, Lyndon. B Johnson realized that. Poor people need healthcare because illness doesn't care whether you have money or not. Where people get sick, and so he created the Medicaid program, and what that said is that the federal government recognized that your wealth should determine whether or not you stay sick, but because he wanted to make everyone happy, it was allocated to the states decide who gets access so under federal law Medicaid existent every single state, and it's a partnership state prisons the money. The federal government puts in some money and the poorest people in every state. They get health insurance so when president. Obama vice-president Biden. We're thinking about what do we do next win? Speaker Pelosi and then majority leader Harry Reid. Reid when they were working on it, they said okay. We have this program that works. It works the poorest people in every state. We know who they are. We know what they need. We've already got the contracts that up. So why not just expand the coverage because in some states? If you made thirty thousand dollars a year? They said that was poor enough. They're gonNA. Let you have access to Medicaid. If you lived in Georgia, you can't make seven thousand dollars a year. He makes seven thousand dollars a year or more actually I think hosted sixty five hundred. You're considered to wealthy for Medicaid. You're not poor enough if you make seven thousand dollars, and so they said. We? Think seven thousand is probably not enough, so we're going to say that in your state. We're GONNA. Boosted up and we're GONNA use the federal poverty line and say that. If you are at certain percentage of federal poverty, we're going to make you can have health care to, and we're going to expand on the existing program that every state hasn't every state uses, and that's called Medicaid for expansion, so basically it's every single state has the opportunity to just be nicer to poor people to say we want you to join the. The ranks of humanity and know that if you get sick, you don't have to wait at home hoping that the cough you have does turn into covert nineteen. We're GONNA. Let you come. See US and check it out early because we know you live in a community where you could spread it around if you're afraid to get checked out, and so that's why Medicaid expansion is so important, and there are most of America got it, but in states like Georgia Texas Missouri Florida Close Your. Eyes and think of the states you. You might mean those are the ones who refused to Medicaid and to the last part is as I said it's a partnership between the federal government and the state government. All of us have paid our taxes every year. FICO TAKES MONEY I in part of Yusup you. You know your money's there. In the states that have refused Medicaid for the first five years of Medicaid expansion, it was almost one hundred percent paid by the federal government. They said we're going to ask you to put money in. We're going to give you money..

"Foulds. Paul. I'm Jason Candor, and this is majority fifty minutes podcast. It helps the fifty four percent who did not vote for Donald. Trump talked to those of us who did about the most divisive issues our country this week. We have our very I guess co host, and it's my good friend stacy. Stacy is the former minority leader in the Georgia House the winner of the twenty eighteen race for Georgia governor, though not the governor due to voter suppression a new. York Times bestselling author, one of the smartest human beings I've ever known latest book. Our time is now came out in June and it's really really good, and you should get it I want to introduce her with two quick stories about my favorite things I've personally heard Stacey Abrams say when I've been in her company and the first. First thing is we so stacey? I, met doing a fellowship program at the Aspen Institute together several years ago and one of the first thing that happened was everybody had to go around. We all legislators or statewide officials and say who were thinking about when we write legislation Stacey everything. Stacy says I feel it should be etched in stone. She said I write legislation for people who grew up in my neighborhood, but without my parents which I thought was so awesome and then fast forward several. Several years later, I was honored that Stacey asked me to come down and be one of two people to introduce her for her campaign kickoff for governor, so I came down to give this speech or give this introduction to her speech and right beforehand were with this little clutch of like her kitchen cabinet, sort of top donors and supporters, and one of them asks the inevitable question. How are you going to get trump voters and stacey said well I'm probably not and everybody was like. Like What are we? What are we doing here? And she said well look, here's the deal. I gotTA. Choice I can either try and get Catholics to become baptists or I can just go out and get Baptist to church, which I thought was the coolest way ever to explain that there's a lot of Democrats out there who haven't been voting or or African American voters in Georgia. Who Haven't been registered and I'm going to work with reality, so that's the kind of person he is. Routinely rips off things not to to put pressure on her and this gaspar. She routinely rips off things that you're like that should be like on a pillow or in stone, or in a frame with an inspiring picture Sony Way. Stacy's here, Stacey how you doing well I'm deeply honored and I'm you know you can't tell beneath the my Melania, but I'm blushing. Very kind introduction. Thank you. Know I. Mean I mean you're you know I think you're one of the smartest people Not just you know. Usually people qualify it. They say like one of the smartest people I've met in politics. She's one of my best friends, and no, like you're just a really good friend, and also just literally one of the smartest people I've ever stuff I didn't mention in. Your Bio is like Multiple Romance Suspense novels that Have Been Very Successful CEO of nonprofit. Successful in business, all sorts of stuff you can probably sing I don't even know. Can you sing at got like a smoky bar? Voice I can sing with guitar and people who've been in Lebron for at least twenty minutes. Yeah, so. Yeah. I have to say that I appreciate the compliment because I knew I was making a point in our fellowship when Jason Candor nodded an appreciation, but more importantly when I could rip off of something, he said because days you're one of the smartest people I've met as well and your thoughtfulness about issues, and you would bring in. Yes, of course you could talk about the military, but you could also quote you fourteenth century. Chinese will offers which you know, not exactly the norm paraphrasing gruber. I was just like I appreciate the fact that you didn't do it in Cantonese embarrassed all those. Thank you. That's very nice of you. That fellowship is awesome I mean for for legislators or anybody out there who who doesn't know about it. The rebel fellowship at the Aspen Institute You can't apply they kind of find you, but they find twelve Democrats and twelve Republicans every year. Who they think are gonNA. Be The next thing on my favorite part was. They didn't let us talk about politics only. Only let us talk about like the reading and anyway a great way to get to know people and anyway all right with that we should start. We should start so so stacey. Ravi usually starts us off with the biggest news in the country each week. So Ravi would you have for us? Well, I I try to say it's. It's an honor to be. Ringo Starr McCartney and Lennon. Bosch to Wade, and Lebron whatever your metaphor is here, but for the news of the week on Monday, new analysis was released showing that between February and may an estimated five point. Four million Americans were stripped the health insurance because of the pandemic, and this increase in the uninsured was nearly forty percent higher than the previous historic increased which occurred during the great recession, and in thirty seven states that expanded Medicaid under the affordable care act. Twenty three percent of laid off. Workers became uninsured, so if you expanded Medicaid twenty three. Three percent lost their health insurance, but the percentage was nearly double that so it was forty three percent in the thirteen states that did not expand, Medicaid which includes Texas, Florida and North Carolina and in Texas alone. The number of uninsured jump from four point two million to four point nine, leaving three out of every ten Taksin uninsured, so stacey your home. State of Georgia declined to expand Medicaid and is among the states with highest rates of uninsured at twenty three percent. You ran stridently on a platform to expand medicaid. Governor George I will never stop fighting for you for Georgia because I am running for you..
