"Charlie, thank you so much. We are so excited about our next guest, in fact. Sorry, Charlie, if I missed the cute 'cause we were talking with him. Over the next week or so, just big broad picture, we're going to be hearing from some of the big media companies when it comes to earnings. Of course, Netflix already reported a blockbuster report thanks to massive subscriber beat. When it comes to the media names, it's about grabbing eyeballs, boosting and holding on a subscribers by giving them great contact content. And our next guest really gets a space in a big way. Yeah, he's been in it as it's evolved in a really big way from traditional broadcast and linear to TV to the explosion in streaming and mobile, DVDs, everything. Josh sapin is the former president and CEO of AMC networks. You know him from such hits as mad men Breaking Bad, The Walking Dead. It was spun off from cablevision Carol back in 2011, and he's got a new book out. I love it. The title third act, I think about my third act, because I'm still in my first act. Reinventing your next chapter, Josh sapan is in our Bloomberg interactive broker studio. Thank you, thank you so much for coming in. Oh, thank you for having me. My pleasure. We have so much to talk about. Do you still like the media world when you look back at it? Do you think it's just kind of unbelievable and what it was, what it's become, what it continues to do. It's wonderful. And I can't get enough television. My wife and I sit down every night. Seriously? No joke. Actually, particularly new shows. There's this abundance of shows and I think television, many would agree. What goes on the screen at home has come to dominate so much of the conversation. And so we sit down frequently and say, what do you want to watch? What are you watching? I want to know. God, well, you know, honestly, it's Academy Awards season after saying that. So I'm trying to be current as a voter. You are. Yeah, on everything that might be. So you have all my books. You have all the screeners. So I've been racking my poll. They're also sort of findable, but I do have access to them. So everything from Pinocchio tatar to Babylon to everything everywhere all at once to the list goes on, spectacularly. And then documentaries, and then foreign films, and so there's not enough time. What about, what about like, quote unquote TV these days? Because TV these days is that it's such a loose definition. It's like, well, no, I don't even mean linear. HBO. Weekly, or a Netflix series drops all at once on Netflix. What are you binging? What are you streaming? That's not true. Well, I have particular affection for AMC because of time and time there. And so AMC bought the Ann reichs library and so mayfair, which is new and interview with the vampire is wonderful and as well as finishing up the end of Better Call Saul. And dark winds and the list goes really on no better all spoilers, please. So it's wonderful. But we do, of course, watch HBO, Netflix, Apple, et cetera, et cetera. Josh, how do you feel about like it's funny? I watch bad sisters, which I adored. I don't know if you saw it. But I watched it week to week because it was one, and it was kind of fun to look forward. To when it came out and I hadn't done that, I mean, so often I just something gets dumped and I just sit there for hours. Do you like that model? Do you think it's a smart model? Do you think it's better that we're kind of waiting for something every week? Well, I would defer to today's experts who are deep in the belly of the beast and can understand the implications of all that. I will just say as a consumer, I don't mean this to be in any sense cute. I like it both ways. You know, yeah, I'd like to binge shows and then I can talk about something that was on Hulu, which is my wife and I liked a show called the patient with Steve Carell. Wonderful show FX on Hulu and we spent and it was anxiously awaited watching the episode this week. So I think it's wonderful both ways depending upon the content, the business imperatives behind it are what they are. And people who are closer to it today can tell you more than I can. I do think about like the explosion in just the demand for content. And what that has done for directors producers, actors, right? I mean, actors who would you think only go on the big screen, right? To have a series on one of the streaming services, it's a really cool thing, and I think we all benefit. But how do you think about the evolution if you go back to your early days, right? I forget the name of the firm, but it became Time Warner cable. It's hard to think about what it was. Well, I grew up really in a desert of television. Paucity of anything that was worthwhile. There were rarely or who's in your book. Well, you get to. Maybe beg to differ. I talk about it because actually he was a really notable exception. Another person in the book named Bill persky, who did who really featured strong women in his comedies and happens to be a dear personal friend, so I'm very attached to both him and his extraordinary work, which began with Dick Van Dyke and Kate and Ellie. So, but it was a different world and it really was, if not desert, it was desert with few oasis. And today it is land of abundance. And I think it's a wonderful land of abundance for creative expression. Do you think forgive me Tim, but I just went to it. Do you think we're getting better in terms of diversity and really serving different audiences? You know, I'd like to thank yes. I really would like to thank yes, rather emphatically, and shows are coming to mind that are really portraying people who look like the world. They don't look like a different world. And I think that's a virtuous, wonderful and really, truly, truly important thing because media is so it actually gets inside people's skin, and so if they see an embrace of diverse people, I think it really helps and influences behavior rather profoundly. I'll tell you an anecdote, another person who's in the book. Is ex senator governor Kerry, who went on to the university president and then banker and is also I should say a poet along the way and was early a pharmacist and military person. And I think there's a fourth and a 5th act in there, but that's okay. Exactly right. But he made a comment. We were fortunate enough years ago to have been involved with the show in its early years called queer eye for the straight guy. Loved it. And bob commented that show when he was in Nebraska, had perhaps more to do with defanging homophobia. Wow. Then there's some legislation because it made humans seem familiar who

"Before I get you out of here. But it's interesting watching the series so far. Pardon if this has been alluded to too often. But your family sometimes strikes people as an episode of Succession. And you had very public battle with your brothers a few years back, more than a few years now. For control of the team, they tried to oust you, you essentially, you know, you won that battle and essentially I would say in some respects exiled them, but Jimmy bus and Johnny bus are in this series. Jerry West who has had some tensions with your franchise is in this series. Those are your words, not much. My words, you can correct them if necessary. But I mean, Jerry West is in there, which cup check is in there. So to the extent that people were viewing this series as well, it's being executive produced by jeanie buss, that this is not going to go down certain paths. These guys are in there. And after everything that was said, so I think it's a credit to the filmmakers and to all of you that those everyone was willing to talk about it. I assume this also means we're getting an episode sometime down the road here before this concludes where it's going to get into you versus Jimmy and Johnny and that whole that whole saga. Yeah, and that's important because when Jimmy was running the basketball, he was, he was making decisions that he thought were best for the business. He thought that, you know, I mean, it wasn't. Well, I mean, you'll hear him explain what he was trying to do. And the thing is is that it didn't follow what doctor boss laid out, which he always wanted the Lakers to be competitive. That, you know, and here we were while Jimmy was running the team year after year after year being at the bottom of the standings. And that, you know, me being on the business side, we had just signed a new television agreement, local carriage with Time Warner cable, which became spectrum. And in those negotiations, Jimmy wasn't part of any conversation. And when you're having those conversations, they asked me, they said, we know how the Lakers have operated the last 25 years.

"You know I do this all the time. I come back from the break so I'm like answering an email or looking for something and I'm listening to a song and I'm singing along with it badly and then I realized, oh God I'm on the radio. All right, Arctic label that was Jimmy bishop's label in Philadelphia and Barbara mason was the artist obviously. She turned 75 this week, wrote, yes, I'm ready your biggest hit and okay. All right, so yeah, I love to know how it hurts then. Obviously, as you can tell, all right, Fran and Austin, welcome back to WGN radio. Hey, Raleigh. Did it again? What's that? What happened? Well, I did it again. I had no idea I was on the radio. I'm just listening to all of it. I'm thinking, wait a minute. Oh, yeah. Not only. I can see how that could happen. That would be probably be happening to me all the time. So I just get into listening to something and Gary will talk to me or something like that. And I'm just in the zone. When I get to listening to something, I really like, I just get in this zone where I don't pay attention to anything else. This is why I was such a lousy disc jockey and I've mentioned this many times. I was the worst disc jockey to ever grace radio. And part of it is severe attention deficit disorder. But you know, I'd start the record and invariably be a record I didn't like because these were hit radio stations. They played hit records. So I would, you know, during the record, I was like reading a book or whatever. And then the record went in and I think gee, the jock ought to change the record, and all of a sudden, I'm like, oh, hell, I'm the jock. I can't tell you at WRC in Indianapolis. That happened like 7 times a night. And these people must have thought I was passing out. But the reality was I just couldn't keep my attention span there. You know, how many times can you hear Chris Rea? Well, yeah, it sounds so easy when you're sitting here on this end, listening and you think, okay, where did they go? But I can so easily see that happening to me. Yeah. I can just very easily see that happening. But then right now I'm mad at Time Warner cable because they're not working. So I don't have Internet. Let's just do it. But wait a minute, you're in Austin, don't you have the ability to get Google fiber or something? I don't know if it's in this neighborhood or not. Well, it depends on whether the building I'm in okays it for one thing. And they probably won't because they're cheap. Well, I know when they were doing the outreach and now Google kind of walked away from that whole project. But when they were doing the outreach that we're making it pretty damn easy, as long as enough people agreed in the block or the neighborhood or the building. But it's worth checking out. So I would sure love to have it. But I think that we're going to get it here and I haven't heard anything else about it, and that was about two years ago. They might have, you know, I'm telling you they're pretty much abandoned that project, but it's a real shame. And I assume you don't have the possibility for ATT U verse. So with Time Warner, what are you getting on your upload speed? Not download. I have no idea. I don't know anything about that. I'm not that I know how to use it, but I'm not that I don't know, there are notorious. There are notoriously stingy with upload. Yeah, all I know is, I'm tired of them breaking down. You know, you're probably on the unlucky node, and this is the problem with cable broadband, is it's not created equal like, you can have two people on the same system and one of them is talking about, this is just the best and someone else is saying it goes down every Thursday, no matter what. Well, it has to do with the individual node. Now part of it is also how many people are on simultaneously. Of course, but apart from the fact that it's a shared resources resource, the nodes are not created equal. And in my location here, I have the misfortune of having had broad behavioral broadband in four different locations. And one of them, the node was so bad, it was literally every other day it was out. Now, thank God where the studio is I'm talking to you from it's rock solid. And what's so funny is this is the hood by every definition that has ever been known, but really, you know, I mean, it's just unbelievable. But it's got a rock solid node. And I said to John, I'm never leaving. This is my node. That's right. Exactly. Actually, it doesn't go out as much as I'm making it sound like because right now I'm mad because it's out. So I go down all the time, but really it's been a couple of months since it's gone out. But it just went out just when I was so I'm on my cell phone, which I usually don't like to call on. But anyway, that wasn't I have I had a dream that had you in it. I was talking on your show. Uh huh. And I unfortunately let the word flip that I didn't want to let flip. And so I was starting to go, and I know better than this, but I was starting to go, oh, I'm so sorry. And just when I started to say, oh, you said carry on. I just thought that might immediate you. But that's hilarious. Oh, real. I woke up the next day and I thought I had really done it. But the good news is that there's someone to master control at WGN who's in charge of watching for that because I do know that, and I also know that if you do something like that, you know, I mean, I've been a performer I've been on other radio shows. I know that if you do something like that, the best thing to do is just keep talking, don't call attention to it. And don't apologize. But the thing that got me about the dream was that I know better than to do that, yet I am so sorry, Raleigh. Oh my God, I didn't mean to do that. Well, it's so funny because years ago when I was at KOA in Denver I got off the air in a producer said, that was so cool. I couldn't believe you let those words slip all in a row and then you just kept talking and I said, what did I say? I had no idea. And so now I always say, you know, don't worry about the callers, worry about me. And because I will not necessarily know it. And I've tried

"They love to intimidate people Now Rick Scott should look at something else Rick Scott again pledges to be a conservative and a Republican I don't know what happened to Rick Scott He's probably too busy complaining about the success of Ron DeSantis's presidency Excuse me governorship Freddie had slipped there They don't like each other do you know that Maybe soon to be presidency who knows a friend of Santa's runs in the future They don't like each other Rick Scott's very jealous that desantis is a better governor than he was So he spends all his time fretting over that But it's really kind of bizarre how a lot of people went to bat for Rick Scott in the state and Rick Scott decides to attack a job creator in a state for committing to this crazy idea of free speech It doesn't seem to focus his ire on these lefty platforms Not that I'm recommending that I don't want anybody censored I think the Formula for combating speech you don't like is not less speech but more speech and I thought most Americans agreed with that Apparently not Rick Scott Folks this worries me going forward Because you're seeing more and more of this this quest by people in both parties to ban things and ideas they don't like to use their power I mean as Rick Scott read the First Amendment the Yale freedom of speech idea Rick's got understanding he's a U.S. senator on a verified account that literally the handle is at sen Rick Scott That tweeting from an official account is a government official trying to intimidate a private business into censoring content you don't like that that may be kind of an issue constitutionally If you thought about that you're a Republican right Listen I don't know the guy lived down here I've never met him But maybe he's a little out of touch you know I'm a capitalist in all these little rich maybe he's a little out of touch and port royal mansion hanging out there too much But don't think for a second you're going to get a free pass because you're slapping our in front of your name We're supposed to be the party that stands for free speech We're supposed to be the party That fights in the battlefield of ideas on the battlefield of censorship You didn't think leftists were going to screenshot your tweet within 5 seconds and start using it for calls to boycott conservatives who have accounts on rubble Were you not smart enough to figure that out You're a U.S. senator You're worth a lot of money Clearly you have an IQ to operate a successful business You didn't know that You don't understand that gaslighting people and lying to people one of the hallmarks of leftist ideology one of the requirements of it is to lie lie often lie confidently but the most important requirement is to isolate people from the truth and that's why the left love censorship so much So you're using your official account verified account to call for censorship on a free market platform and a free speech platform and you didn't see anything wrong with that Are you hanging out with Adam kinzinger Another clown show Republican from the other side the House of Representatives another uni party guy Adam kinzinger Adam kinzinger thought the ghost of the Kyiv story was real Adam kinzinger who this guy I mean you'd have a hard time finding a bigger chump or coward in Congress in kinzinger Adam kinzinger again at Adam kinzinger he's hashtag bye bye He thinks it's really funny that on She's a conservative TV network that has the right to speak apparently he got bumped off by Time Warner cable which you should probably call Time Warner and let him know you don't approve of that And Adam kinzinger thinks it's hilarious Hashtag bye bye and claims to be a Republican Can we used to be the party of ideas The party of free speech Free speech no matter what You don't violate the law you're not threatening someone's life I don't care how important your speech is I'll defend it I'll argue against it with my own speech but I'll defend your right to say it What happened to that What happened to that Why are we now parroting leftist narratives Sad folks I'm rarely I've been disappointed in politicians a lot I ran for office I met a lot of them 90% of them have been an abject disappointment I mean really you walk out of a room and you're like my gosh really I'm not kidding It happened to me more than once But I didn't know this guy and I thought he was doing a relatively decent job Rick Scott and then I walked out of the gym yesterday and saw that And you may say well Dan but you know fairly enough you have a personal interest in rubber That's fair enough The criticism I'm not going to run away Of course I do But I put my money where my mouth is ladies and gentlemen it's not because I talk about a parallel economy I want to do something about it And I'm really profoundly disappointed when people you would think would join us and link shields in that fight Start attacking and singling out us And then you may ask yourself well dad is you know allowing free speech on your platform even if it's things you don't like is that a hill you're willing to die on Oh yeah yeah that is Your darn right it is I would never get involved with a business that sells out as principles And when they do or if they do I'm out and I've done it before and you know what I'm talking about All right I got more on this coming up after the break including on a lighter note a story out of Florida the liberals completely melting down over spring break here in Florida They're absolutely Jim They want to be in the house forever They are so upset that people are leaving the house and actually going out Sitting on a beach getting sun my gosh you can't have that No vitamin D.

"The song. And lo and behold because of the way the industry was in those days. If you had enough radio ads and enough pre orders on the single, you charted. A week later, the single comes out and it charts in the 20s. Wow. A week later, after we've a week after we recorded it, you know, nobody's even heard it yet. It didn't take that much longer for us to get the album done than well, you know, the albums, a big giant hit now. That doesn't happen a whole lot. But it's just not the kind of thing that you can depend on. You know what I mean? It's a complete opposite end of the spectrum which was meatloaf. The opposite of like that confidence and knowing what you're going to do when you had to have a master plan to accomplish it. Meatloaf, on the other hand, was just a crab shoot through the entire thing, even though by that album, because any time an anomaly breaks through, it's really interesting to me. And that there's nothing else like that, whatever that is. It's very unique. It's unlike other music going on at the time. Well, it was not completely unlike other music that was going on at the time, because when I went to see meatloaf, I knew who meatloaf was, I had seen them in the Rocky Horror show. I knew who he was. I didn't know who steinman was, Simon actually the genius behind the whole thing. But they did a live audition for me. Simon on the piano meatloaf and two background singers. And essentially did the entire record with piano accompaniment, but did all of the highlights of the record act it out with everything with the histrionics Paradise and dashboard light and all that stuff. And while I'm watching it, and they're giving me the subsurface they said, no producer wants to touch this. The concept is too big, no producer really wanted to deal with it. And so they're doing this for me and in my head I'm thinking. This is a spoof of Bruce Springsteen. It's all the same, you know, ersatz 50s stuff, you know, with motorcycles, switchblades, leather jackets, all that rebel without a cause iconography, and I'm thinking, this is a spoof of Bruce Springsteen, and that's how I'm going to approach it. And he had a label at the time. I wouldn't have taken it on, unless he had a label, but the day before we went into the studio, and we had rehearsed the band for two weeks already. You know, we were ready to just go in there and do it live, which the record was mostly live, not the singing, but although playing on it was mostly all life, meatloaf says, I went off my label. They don't understand me. And whatever. I said, well, I'm not your manager. I can't tell you what to do, but you know we're going into studio tomorrow. And he says, well, I got to get off my label. You know, so I go to was either Paul fishing or Albert Grossman, you know, running bearsville at the time. And I said, well, if you put this, it's too late now, we're already rehearsed. We actually got members of Springsteen's band. We got Roy bitten. Amazing. And Max Weinberg. Amazing. Are in the bands. You know, this is how much it was spoof it is to me. And I say, well, put this on my tab, you know, underwrite the expenses like you would a regular record and we'll give you right a first refusal on the record. We finished the record and bears will turns it down. As does Warner Brothers whose distributing bearsville. And it takes 6 months to find somebody to take the record. They shopping around everybody and everybody says, what is this? A spoof of Bruce Springsteen and finally they find a small subsidiary area of Epic Records called Cleveland international. And they have one act on the label. Ian hunter is the only act they have on the label. Great guy, a great player. I should call him for a collab. You were the first person I ever heard talk about the revolution in the way music is consumed. Maybe it's far back as the late 70s, to how it is today. If you look back at the things that allowed you to understand what was possible, were there any forks in the road where it went either a different way than you thought it was going to go or had a potential to do something better than it did. I put out a thing called no world order. They came out in the late 80s, and it came out in a number of different formats. And it was the first example if you had the right device of actual interactive music, music that you as a listener could get some control over. I came up with the concept through a number of things. But it was not driven at first by the technology. It was driven by the realization that, first of all, music is ultimately going to be repeated. The music is too limited a language that for us to be completely original all the time. So it's just bound to be repeated. The audience no longer is attached to a particular form of and there were two phenomenon that caused me to realize that. One was, Frankie goes to Hollywood, relax. It didn't happen in this country. It never became like the giant hit in this country that it was, for instance, in England. But suddenly, innovation had moved back to England and Europe and stuff. It's particular point in the mid to late 80s. And they released a new version of relax like every two weeks. A new remix of relax every two weeks, and everyone they released would go to the top of the charts. And I suddenly realized now the audience is accepting the mutability of music that it doesn't have to be this way in that sacred and you know it can't be any other way. Now that we realize this, how can we accelerate this process? How can we actually define it and make tools to do it and put them in people's hands? And that's when I came up with the idea of an album that didn't have a specific running order. And that was no world order. I required a certain technology for it to be ultimately realized, but also it could be realized in non interactive technologies, but in a number of ways. But I wrote the songs and with a certain discipline. There had to be a clean break every four to 8 bars, or maybe every two bars, but there had to be clean breaks in the music everywhere, you know. So there was not a lot of songs with like syncopation with a lot of beats, you know, a lot of it's got lots of down beats and stuff like that. And then essentially record like you usually would, but in the compositional part, you make sure you've got these brakes. Then come up with the technology by which you can string them together in real time. And found Philip CDI had just come out and the technology was in it to enable to do that. So I got together with a programmer that I was working with and we came up with the no world order concept. The whole engine that ran it that allowed people to essentially go in and specify how they'd like to experience the music. And even like stop and loop on one piece of the music and change the parameters and that one piece of music. So say, I never did understand what the words were there. Let's take out some of the instruments. And so it allowed you to experience it in that way. It allowed you to utilize it or filter it so that let's say you want to use it for your aerobics. You said it so it never goes below a certain tempo. So you ask me about a fork in the road. Yes. After I did this, I got approached by a Time Warner cable network, which was doing an interactive TV experiment on Orlando, Florida, and a neighborhood, but they had fiber optic to the curb and the entire optic neighborhood, which is not unusual anymore, but in those days big deal in the neighborhood had a prototype set top box that was supposed to be interactive box. And since they were still prototyping the box, everyone got an SGI indigo computer. And if you're not into computer graphs you may not know what that is, but it's about the size of a carry on suitcase. And they're trying to figure out, okay, what kind of services do people want? Pre Internet. This is pre Internet. No, people don't have Internet in their homes yet. So they figure, okay, we'll develop a pizza pie out application. You know, you can go on your television, pick out your toppings, you know, and a piece of be delivered with your topping. But they had reasonable query. What kind of interactive music services would people like in their homes? So they hired me to come up with a prototype so that they could make it part of this experiment. So we came up with an outline for an impossible technological solution for it. But of course, you can't do it unless you got some music on servers. So we went to what was then the 5 majors. So we set up meaningful special products, divisions of the labels. And we went in and say, we're just experimenting here. We want to see what kind of demand there is. So what you got to do is you got to put some music that people would be interested in. Some name artists or something artists of some kind and put their music on a server so that we can connect to it and deliver it to this particular audience, this experimental audience. Not a single label would hear of it. They say no, we don't. Don't talk about this. Two years later, napster. Later. So I had gone in with the hope that somehow the labels would see the light and ease everything into this. New area instead of it just collapsing into chaos, which is essentially what is done and are only now figuring out how do we recover from this. What is the role of the record label now in all of this? Given that artists can do everything themselves. The thing that surprised me about the streaming revolution when it happened. I was really excited about it. And I just imagine as a real fanatical fan of music and going to a record store every day and walking around the record stores and just wanting to hear everything, the idea of living in the record store, where everything was always available on demand when you want it. Seemed like just the greatest thing that could ever happen. And I thought I would want a DJ all day and what I've come to learn now that it's here is that actually I really like being DJ too. And I spend much more time listening to curated music than picking what I want to listen to. I like the surprise of what comes next. You already know what you want to listen to. Yeah. So things that you didn't know were there that you didn't know you wanted to listen to, you know? And yeah, those are the things that I try and find if I'm doing any research for where to move my own music. Well, thank you for doing this. Oh, well done. Okay. Cool.

"Power of it would love to hear what that means to you and as you started as you said with a product and division it was really storytelling. That catapulted morning. Bro can you take us into that. Yeah you know my thought around. This is austin and i both went to an undergrad business program at michigan and i would say most people. In the undergrad business program were were fighting for kind of the same. Three categories really two categories of jobs investment banking management consulting. I think is a function of that. Most people focused on attaining the skills that made the most sense for those jobs. So things like no financial analysis accounting operations. And you know don't get me wrong. Those are really important things. Those are skills that any business professional should have proficiency in but was always interesting to me. Is that the skill whether you want to call it. Sales or communication or storytelling. It wasn't talked about a lot. There was one class that everyone took. That was a joke for most people in business communications. And you know the reason. I i tweeted about that was just in reflecting on kind of the biggest things that i think. Most founders are entrepreneurs leverage in order to propel their business forward. I think storytelling has to be in kind of the top. Three of the number one yet. It's not people aren't incentivized to really get great storytelling In college and when i posted about that i was kind of just referring to verbal storytelling but i think it actually is more broad than that. It's verbal storytelling. it's written storytelling and it's visual storytelling. And i think we've seen examples of great creators or experts in those different areas. Bill massive audience is on the internet because people are realizing on the internet and not necessarily in school. How important those things are and look at. The number of newsletter led businesses. That have emerged over the last. Let's even call twelve to eighteen months. There are a number of choices when thinking about the plot of your story on paper. It could look similar to a lot of other value. Props that are out there. What would you say was the plot twist of morning brew that could take it from the product. You rolled out with you. Hope to see this business grow. I think the plot twist was a few the first one was when we identified very early on that the content was not just for college students but it was for everyone. If i was alex who is really doing his friends and they're doing it for other colleagues or just people in the business school but when we went to our internships or job. He realized that this wasn't just for college students. Those professionals as well. That was a big moment where the market went from college. Kids which is a nice market but not that big not that valuable. Be totally honest. Do everyone and we'd ceo's of big companies reading we had investigating analysts and is that was the first thing who was the first big ceo that you saw subscribe. There was the ceo of time warner cable. Who ended up in the morning brew early on he was. I'd say the first bit curson who we didn't know signed up and we found out signed up we used to every night goes to the list. Secret signed up. I think the second thing was alex night both new the tone invoice. We wanted to hit on in every single newsletter. We know we couldn't do that. We know that we knew that we the vision but we couldn't execute it on every single day every single sentence that every single newsletter we could do it for small chunks. A sentence of paragraph may be the single newsletter but not three hundred sixty five days a year and when we found writers who could write in the tone we wanted it written that was the second inflection point aha moment whatever was okay now we can focus in the business really early on negro alex sales even because we had some content people. That was the second really big moment where we knew the audience and then we do the contact it hit and the third was sales it was. Can we get brands to advertise in morning brew. Can we continue the champion. This idea of creating native advertising right renew banners weren't gonna. We're gonna bill of big business off the back of banner ads in the newsletter. So once those three hit the audience.

Like come. Hell yeah another great question so we thought we identified and this was one of the other alarm bells wanted to pursue kind of like the arsenic poisoning so one of the things that we thought we discovered through one after she dropped that army. I hired a private investigator. Private investigators thought they identify the gentleman and as it turned out this gentleman had a phd inorganic chemistry. And that's when. I got scared to go to. This guy would have the wherewithal to either create this or develop some type of concoction to try to poison me. Well that turned out to be a dead end because it turned out to be the phone number turned out to be attached to A woman A stay at home. Mum also in our in our neighborhood and there are some other things that i that i lay out the we. We never figured out but so it.

She did it even though she was under a court order to maintain the integrity of the device and she also wiped four or five computers clean and only turned over fourteen emails to us my speculation when she had the opportunity to cheat was when her father passed away she also got involved with an institution has a program for terminally ill cancer patients. That may not have family or family. Need a break and you've got volunteers. Go and sit with those patients. Well she was legitimately involved program. I met the social workers at the director of it. We went to fundraisers for it. But as i look back now again clarity. This priceless she. A of her volunteering took place at night. She'd be she begun at night. It come to me at eight or eight thirty and she would say well. They have another patient dying. Do you mind if i go and it without patient. Of course i'm like no no no no i. I applaud it at the time. I plotted the compassion. She had as the result. The death of her father which i still believed rocked her pretty hard that i settled. Drive you there. I'll pick you up. Because i don't like parking deck. I don't think it's safe at night. And she said well. I'll i'll call. I'll just call security. So she got on many nights from eight thirty till six six thirty seven o'clock and she would tell me nobody. Nobody relieved me patiently. I thought they were gonna die sooner. And and of course i bought it. I bought it. So i don't wanna give everything away because this book and congrats on me. First time published author. Where is your like. What does she think about it.

"Being inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. You know, I sit here and I've had two years work on this speech. Because so I I can't screw this one up right as well. Um, but you know, they cut it down and I and I do think about how do you How do you put it into Eight minutes could speech. You know everything that you just capsize that you talked about the people that helped more who you are, and then you know, then you go out there and you're going that The pay the field and you're battling. You know the word come back and run on top and all the people that were so you know, a part of that, not just the people that do that you were in there battling with but To support people, the family and everything else. So I'm gonna try and do it in a manner which will be a little unique because a lot of times people have had 15 20 minute speeches where you can kind of go chronologically. You know when you try to cut it down to eight minutes, which are given us in eight minutes state speech should do this year. Um, I think you just kind of I'm gonna take a little different approach than that. Well, you know, I'm glad they cut it down to eight minutes because I think there's so many people that have to speak right and used to be. There are people like Steve Young's dad that basically took the situation hostage and like spoke forever, and it's just it's too long. It's too long. I can't do it. You're better off eight minutes short. Get to the point and move. That's more memorable than going on. But I will also tell you that it's also a burden that you've had two years to have to write this, right? Yeah, that just sits on your mind like you need to just do it like you want a little time to think about it. Process it get to all the people that you want to thank, but too long is not good. I remember Jim Harbaugh asked me to speak to the University of Michigan football team a couple months on the bench. Bill every night. Every night. I thought about what I want to say, and my message would change and I'm like, I just got to go talk to this team already. That's got to get this done because that moment was was as meaningful to me. It's something like this is to you where you get to go talk and you want him to be just perfect and it will be great, and I'm glad that they did, because it would be hard last year to talk about celebration. Of this nature when the country was in such turmoil, right? I mean, just do with everything that was going on. So they did it right by postpone it for another year, and I think now I think would be an opportunity to Just have the right perspective. You know, it seems like we're kind of on the other side of this pandemic. Things are still starting to open up again. Suddenly we can't relax. I understand all that, But you're starting to see some degree of normality coming back, so it'll be nice to be able to then get to be a little reflective. And what's also interesting to me as we reflect on your life and your career in your book. Heart and steal. Written with Michael Holly is the fact that you have now been at CBS just about as long as you coached in Pittsburgh. So there is some 14 or 15 year old football fan out there that never saw you coach a game but has seen you On CBS, which is hard for me to process because I still I look at you as this coach. I look at you as that guy, but some of these young fans of today I have never seen you in that role. Is that odd to you to think that you've now been on TV? Almost as long as you are the head coach of the Steelers. I mean, this will be my 15th year at CBS and I coach 15 years and in Pittsburgh, so The CBS has been so great honestly with Sean McManus, David Berson and The platforms had to work with JB. The entire time and grew Marie entire time. I mean, it's been, you know, and now we got made. Phil stepped down since into the studio. It's really been.

Um, so much respect to the game and try to give the viewpoint of you know what we see on the outside, as you well know, doing what you do. There's a lot more It goes on the on the inside of those walls. Uh, and then what we see on the outside, So, um, But you know, it really is. You sit back and just think. Wow. This is my 15th year of doing this, like you said. They're people. Some people come up. They say, aren't you that Time Warner cable guy? Oh, yeah. Yeah, I used to be used to be a coach to you know, so it's uh so it It is funny because you're right. There's a lot of people never see me, coach. And is there any way you mentioned the book that there have been owners who have called you? How many owners I'm curious how many owners have called reach out? Try to get you to come back to coach.

But But you know, the more and and she was so supportive and say, Listen, if you want to do it like that and get it. I always get around that front, right? It was right on December, people would start making enquiries. You know you interested, you know, and people like Oh, well. You know, and the more I talk through it, I go. I feel like in here in the city. I got some normality. And I always wanted that normality and I Never got to the point where I was really even that serious Then it got just, you know, then I just start saying No, I'm really not that interested because I didn't want you know, I I had this new life transition to this new was still trying to get better at T V and Yeah, I had an off season. I'm making man. Had an off season. Now we can travel. We start doing some trap. We start going to Italy Start point to Israel. The My wife has family. It's in Israel. So I said, you know, There is this is things I could never do before, so I was doing things. I never had an opportunity to do before and I was enjoying it. I was enjoying in normality of having a job during the football season. Going out last season came It was just whatever you want to do, and I said, I've never had that option before. So I didn't need to go back to do what I did before. Like I said, I didn't invalidate anything. But certainly when that Hall of fame came, it certainly put an exclamation point on my career. Could we ever get to a point where you've done enough of that? Traveling enough of the balancing enough of the enjoyment and relaxation to wear one day you could ever go back to coaching ever again, Bill? I don't know if I ever get back to coach and I I still.

"Stars from the NASDAQ Marketsite in Times Square. I'm Jennie Urman, and our guest today is David Gandler. He is the co founder and CEO Koo Bo TV. Nice to see you. Thank you for having me so Fu Bo TV life streaming TV. Tell me a little bit about what you guys do so very simply Phobos, a sports first cable replacement product, we essentially lead in with our sports programming. We have about 40 sports networks and our basic television package, and then people stay for the entertainment. So it's still it's still cable television Still cable television television But this is O. T T, which is over the top. Can you just for a moment? Just educate anyone who doesn't already know what a teacher over over the top? It is very simple. It's just Internet television. We stream over the public Internet. On Gui provide a very different experience, and you would get through your setup box. That is the major difference, and we continue to innovate on that viewing experience Providing people with the differentiated, you know, recommendations, tension. And you know, we we provide them with features sets that allow them to really enhance that that viewing experience. So you're no stranger to cable on broadcast. You spent quite a bit of time as I understand in sales, and that's what you tell me about your background before you started. Yes, 00. I've been in media. My whole life started at a very small station. In San Antonio. W was K v D, a San Antonio's a Telemundo station, part of the NBC Universal Station Group. On From there, I went on the Time Warner cable media sales not too far from here and 51st Street. The Paramount building where I sold advertising against 40 plus cable nets, including regional Sports networks and New York one news. From there went onto a scripts Networks Interactive, which is the parent company of Food Network. Initially TV on then my just got bored, and that's when I thought about entering the startup game. Okay. You beat me to it. I want I want to know. When was it? How was it that you said that you said yourself, All right. I'm going to start my own thing. So e mean It's really It's really different for everybody for me. I enjoyed my career. I'm very passionate about media. I think it's a fantastic space. Andrea Issue that I approached in my business was always from a very creative perspective on you know, obviously, as companies grow and get larger, there's more process I less opportunities to really deviate from from what is expected. Despite the fact that you may have a better idea, or you may have a better way to execute, you know, on a certain process, and so for me was really about okay. I think I could do a lot more on. Um I had a great career. I love scripts. Networks is one of the best places I've ever worked. That that there was a point time where I realized that I could do more, and I wanted to impact the world. And so for me, it was an opportunity to just take all that experience that I had. And demonstrate that I actually understood how to do it in a different way. That could be back to take you to look at your resume. It looks like there was a little bit of overlap like we're working on this and you'd already started the business while you still had a full time job. Is that right? Short of yet talk a little bit about how you exited from your full time job and then transition. So this whole time. It's a good question. So I was actually I consider myself very lucky Aziz. You know most startups fail very small percentage of startups actually succeed. Startup that I worked at joined at an early stage was called Trauma Fever, which was acquired by Warner Brothers in 2000 and 14 on October 31st. So as we were going through the diligence process, and they were selling the company They're the same questions kept coming up. How do you get to a million subscribers? How do you How do you build a global business? And at that time I had decided that okay, You know what I assume is this is going to be acquired. I'm gonna start my own business, and I'm gonna take in a very different direction. And so, yes, we register the company. All these things were happening and on the back end But realistically, I had waited until you know the company was acquired before we actually launched Fu Bo. So just to give you time line October 31st 2014 that company was acquired. In November. 7th 2000 and 14. I had started building Fu Bo to then launch it very quickly on January 8th of 2015, So it's very smooth, Quick transition. It's moving quick, and so, um, I imagine there are moments where when you in those early days when you were like, shoot, you know, it's just like you wake up and you're just kind of figuring things out on the fly. Um, what did you do to kind of You know, figure things out. Did you have people you could drawn? You obviously had a lot of industry knowledge. But there there might have been a lot You didn't know? Because your company Yeah, so so You know, I always tell entrepreneurs once folks that are just starting out. You know, my job is really three things. It's thinking about the strategic direction. Of the business that I'm Managing the second thing I think about is the people. How do I hire the right people? Usually you're looking for people that compliment your skill set. So I might be less risk averse than most. So I have a very strong CFO. Sort of to keep me uh, you know. Under control to some degree on But third thing is financing, right. You need to finance the business. So those air kind of the three things that for me or most important s, So if you have the right people with you, you can focus on the strategy and you can focus on raising money, which, obviously, for most businesses, Is a 24 hour, seven day a week job. Uh, just looking back on. It hasn't been that long. But, you know, looking back at the early days. Um, what do you know? Now? What advice would you give yourself? Yeah, knowing what you know now, So you know for me, I thought that I could actually do what I wanted to do within a larger company. I thought that I could get people to change. And it's not people. It's the culture. It's just these air, very large businesses that tens of 1000 employees, so it's not. It's very difficult to impact the people around you. So I think if I was to give myself advice today, I would say be more aggressive. If you have Good feeling about something. On. Do you have in the past successfully been able to manage your tasks or the job you were in? You should go for it. I mean, you have absolutely nothing to lose and everything to gain. Well, you know, I always tell people if you if you feel like there's something you need to do, you should definitely do it because there's a moment in time. Where once you miss that it's Chances. Are you probably for that particular product or idea you may have sort of missed the window. His timing is also critical people. Sometimes you hear these stories about too early To wait. And if you feel the urge, and you think something is missing in that marketplace, chances are somebody else out. There is probably also thinking about it, so you really need to sort of take advantage of that. Really inspiring. Okay, we're gonna have to break real quick. Here. This'll is business Rock stars from the NASDAQ Marketsite in Times Square. We'll have more with our guests. David Gandler, the co founder and CEO of Fu Bo TV.

"Hello, My friends. Welcome to the Dennis Prager show. It's already Thursday. A phenomenon has occurred that I cannot explain. Time seems to have flown with greater rapidity during the lockdown than a normal times. Somewhat by allying the notion that time flies when you're having a good time. I don't understand that I fully acknowledge it. All of a sudden I wake up and it's Thursday. And yet another week has gone. Uh, So they impeach the president. Yesterday in the House. I wonder how many Americans actually even listened or watched? I would love to know if we have any members. What the left is done to impeachment that is done to everything else that is ruined. That it is now meaningless. It is truly meaningless. Well, it is simply a Democratic party's way of Expressing its petulant anger. That's all if needless to say, if Republicans acted in this way. The country would be in major hysteria and crisis induced by the media. Right, Uh, Very to dark time. My dear friends, and I don't want you to despair because that's very unhelpful. You should be concerned. This is every reason to be concerned. But what did I say? The the other week. If you only fight when you think you'll win, you won't win, Then that's the way it works. Now to say you'll fight. Means to take over the capital the way they have figured out that he induced The insurrection. No insurrection took place. It is just the mother lie of the left. But I am you are living through the rule. That anything repeated enough, including men give birth. Is accepted as truth. That's right. Have you ever heard anything is hateful. Has men give birth? Mm. Oh, it's really up there. Like you to hear a congresswoman. From ST Louis, a newly elected Congress woman. On. This is Cori Bush. In Congress yesterday. Madam Speaker, ST Louis and I rise in support of the article of impeachment against Donald J. Trump. If we fail to remove a white supremacist president who incited a white supremacist insurrection, it's communities like Missouri's first district that suffer the most. 117. Congress must understand that we have a mandate to legislate in defense of black lives. The first step in that process is to root out white supremacy, starting with impeaching the white supremacist in chief. Thank you, and I yield back I'm from New York was history, sir. That was that some applause that I actually heard. The white supremacist in chief. Anything can be said. Do you understand? This woman did not have a voice in her. You know, I think it might be going a little too far. We really don't have any data to support the argument that he is a white supremacist. Let alone the white supremacist in chief. The question really arises when, when a white supremacist does show up. Will there be any vocabulary left? The answer, of course, is no. Also, however, she did believe it's worth playing. Receiving. Believe Wade in Hale's here receded to leave Gentle lady from Michigan. His klehb the gentleman from Michigan's recognized for 30 seconds. Thank you, madam chair in Michigan's 13. We probably speak truth to power, even in the face of a racist and chief. Those who incited an attack on the People's house do not get to talk about healing and unity. They have torn this country apart. They have stopped the fire and then handed the gasoline to Donald Trump. Dr King once said. True priest is not merely the absence of tension. It is in the presence of justice. Today, we must embody those words. We must understand that peace must be centered in truth in action. We cannot sit Madam Chair said I'd only by after a violent attempted coup and allow lies and hate to continue. Today we stand up for our constituents. Continue to be harmed, right? That's their approaches to reserve the gentlewoman Today, Fine has expired. Donald Trump that gentlewoman's time is expected. The gentleman from New York the If there's ever a gentle woman, it is receded to leave. I know it's I know the person has to say it, but there is someone of a joke. Attempted coup insurrection. The only cool in which people stopped to take cell fees. Yeah. I mean, it was disgusting and stupid. It wasn't an attempted coup. It's just being used like the rights that fires I've said to you since it happened. The Mounties used the Reichstag fire within a month of being In office and 1933. And then they had the enabling act, which enabled them to shut down all the Communists of the country Justice they're shutting down the conservatives of the country. Differences, of course. Well In terms of tactics. There's no difference of it's the tactics that I am. I am drawing a parallel to Not the concentration camps, death camps and the like, which are unique to the Mounties. And which didn't occur for years. This is 1933 a month into their election. Now what are they going to have an impeachment? This is not clear to me. Will there be an impeachment after he is out of office? How do you impeach a president who isn't president? It shows you it's all emotional. Their Children, then There's a list of companies that say they are cutting off the president. PJ Media has Reported on this Amazon, one of the biggest companies in the world on by the richest man in the world, will also owns The Washington Post cut off donations to Republicans who fought election fraud.

"When we met grant goings a few months ago he was holding a copy of the local newspaper and he was so proud of the story on the front page. It was about this new kind of municipal uber system in his town. So for like a Buck Fifty. You can call come pick you up. Take you to where you're going. We're super excited. Grandpa is a total wonderful civics nerd and for the past fifteen years. He's been the city manager of Wilson North Carolina. The city of Wilson has a population of about fifty thousand people. It's downtown is full of these giant old brick warehouses that used to be filled with tobacco. But now there's a microbrewery barbecue restaurants. This city has managed to transform itself into a manufacturing town they attracted bridgestone tyres and Merck pharmaceuticals but they were starting to worry about keeping those businesses because by the time grant got to Wilson in the mid two thousands. The city had a problem. It's Internet. They're hearing from businesses that the Internet not so great and maybe worse they were also hearing from the little league parents facilities would go down frequently and so someone will be halfway through registry the kid there would be some type of breaking service. They'd have to start. All over again. Crashed Little League registration in two thousand and five. I mean come on in other parts of the country. People were discovering nickelback online. Wire with no problem. The Internet could be so much better so grand goings called a meeting with the local Internet provider. Time Warner Cable and the local telephone company and then we sat down and we basically had a few Ask so number one was. We asked them to heavily. Invest in upgrading. The system we. We'd sort of felt like we knew that answer no interest. Yeah the answer was no time Warner cable. Now Charter didn't agree to an interview for this story but you can understand their answer. They're like. Why would the existing company invest a ton of money? Just to wind up with the same customers. They already have. It's a questionable business decision at best. But that's okay no problem. Gran had prepared option number to partner with us. What if Wilson pays to build the top of the line Internet infrastructure fiber optic cables? Then Time Warner could offer their service over these super fast lines town had built. The answer to that question was where the second largest cable provider in the country. Why would we partner with you? Which only left option number three? The city would do it alone. Grant told Time Warner fine. We'RE GOING TO BUILD. And run our own fiber optic network and that's when the laughing started and they very quickly exited after that they literally laughed at you in your office absolutely. Yes and have admitted that did that like light. A fire for you did for me. That's the day that you said it's on it's hello and welcome to planet money. Kenny Malone and I'm Wilson Fair no relation to the city of Wilson and not only would time Warner cable laugh in the city of Wilson's face. They would actively fight to stop the city from building. Faster Internet it is a fight that has now spread to dozens of other states. We started reporting the story before the pandemic. But it's more relevant than ever because this is a big part of the reason that it's very hard to move to little towns around the country and make a living working remotely

"So what are the guiding principles of creativity is that some of you very best ideas. Come out of sheer frustration products like honest tea or cliff bar olders dyson these all came about because their founders couldn't find the beverages or energy bars or shoes or or vacuum cleaners that they wanted so they invented them but in the case of Tristan Walker. I think it's safe to say that he didn't just start from a place of mild frustration. He actually started from a place of being fed up even angry because for most of his life he had felt completely league ignored totally overlooked whenever he walked into the shaving. I'll drugstore virtually all the big shaving brands were making products that worked well on men with relatively straight hair but tristen couldn't find a high quality razor that worked on his curly facial hair without leaving razor bumps olivarez neck Kajol line and he knew that like him many African American men were dealing with the exact same problem so he decided to design bevill a shaving system with a simple single blade razor that was easy on his face and he wanted everything about the product to look and feel great not like the dusty boxes of shaving products for African American men that we seem to be on the bottom shelves at the drugstore and his ambition to build a black owned and led consumer Marand as big as Johnson Johnson or proctor and gamble but of course when I tried to raise money from all those VC firms on sand hill road in Silicon Valley and he got a lot of knows but eventually he was able to launch his company with a razor some shaving cream but of oil and brush and over the past five years his brand has grown to include more than thirty specialized hair and beauty products for men and women which are now sold and lots of big retailers lers across the country a few weeks ago. Tristan sat down to tell me how he did it in front of a live audience at the Lincoln Theater in Washington. DC tristen Walker Central. I'll take it so let's start. Let's start at the beginning. Tell me about about out your childhood knew you grew up in Queens where I like to describe. It is a bit of the Rosa grew from concrete story. I grew up in Queens New York projects. It's Welfare Bouts of homelessness that sort of stuff right and I realized very early at one goal in life and as as wealthy as possible as quickly as possible Salaam. I realized three ways to do it. I was to be an actor athlete that didn't work second second was to work on Wall Street that didn't work in the last entrepreneurship and then thank goodness. I came to that realization. We were a little boy. A A your dad died. He was killed killed and you grew up with an older brother and your mom. What did your mom do yet for work so oh my mom worked three jobs mainly New York City Housing Authority Administrative Assistant? She spent some time working for Time Warner Cable and she did some retail all at the same time within seven days. I don't know how she did it. She did it. Thank goodness for her. It was not easy but she persevered and as a result of I think her perseverance good fortune beam I graduate college in my family and she she really in what what do you remember about like your neighborhood growing up as a kid I mean would did you do. Did you add in do much because I couldn't do much like my father was killed. When I was three years old? I don't remember too much about him other than the fact that he was killed when I was three years old which is a little bit telling to Kinda type of environment that I did grow up in so you know I lived probably the first six seven years of my life live in Jamaica Queens New York forty projects in the time I turned around seven years old. We moved to flushing Queens. Another project can development and it was much of the same right. My mother was like you're going to be the one you're not gonNa go through this stuff very disciplined. Stay home. Get Your studies and you're not going outside. When I snuck snuck outside? She caught me. I got in a lot of trouble but that was really kind of my life right. Get to school get home. Do you work repeat and you know that discipline actually Kinda got me to wearing them. Now school easy for you has a kid yeah. I was a good student because the discipline that was inspired me I always excelled right. I tended to be at least up until high school anyway at or near the top of my class you know and I kinda slow down when I say that stuff because by the time I got to high school. I realized I didn't even know what a verb was right. I wouldn't do this entire time. All the way up until my high school years doing really really well at the top of my class not even knowing what verb now and that sort of thing was as a teenager you ended up going to this really elite private boarding school hotchkiss in Connecticut the way I like to describe posh kisses is the first time I got to see how the other half lived. I went to school literally rockefellers Ford's right and I learned a couple of things first name mattered to being wealthy wasn't same as being rich and the last and probably the most important was I can compete with each and every one of them while while while I didn't know Oh what a verb was I learned and by the end of my four years they're you know on a roll like that. Sort of thing you know is then absolutely just wonderful experience for me but transformative in a little bit different from how I grew up was it was the transition for you when you got there because you were like fourteen years old. I've been living away from home since I was thirteen fourteen years old and were the first few months at hard for you. academically we get to the school and I realize I don't even have a computer and you know all of my other classmates had computers that sort of thing and I went to leave as the English professor who is my adviser at the time and I remember he took me to this basement. We're all used textbooks are and then he was old compaq like Presidio L. Computer that we had the like hall out and take it to my room so academically. It was very tough because I wasn't equipped with the tools to compete but over the years accelerating so you fish you go to Stony Brook University New York to study economics.
