"Tim. This this is one of those fun ones because over the weekend outriders has been has been blowing up. There's so much talk about when it comes out writers and so i pretty much condensed most of the outriders news into and outriders early impressions round up because a lot of sites don't have their final reviews out but so many sites do have they're either reviews progress. A few sites do have final reviews. And then there's also other things to talk about when it comes to outriders instill so story number. One is the outright review in progress roundup. Of course the game came out on. Was it thursday thursday friday. At the end of last week he came out a. I'm going to start off with ever hearing cova at screen. Ram who put up an article titled progress colon worth the time overall. Outriders is the word outriders is is worth the time. Investment so far it's by clumsiness and serve instability at launch. All the game has areas that needs to improve the core ideas and game player. Still incredibly strong making it easy to overlook whatever flaws are present. It's also an easy game to recommend for both solo players in groups of friends looking for a shooter dive into together and because of the world here mechanic anyone with any skill level can jump into outriders and have a great time with a handful of hours left to go in the main campaign. That doesn't appear likely to change then. We have giovanni cohen tonio at digital trends. Put an article titled out rhetoric review colon. Thrilling action makes up for a flat. Scifi story people can fly isn't being deceptive when it distances outriders from other games. But it's hard to blame anyone for drawing comparisons with needless life service. Dna baked into it. The game is won quite short of being a duck justice his protagonist torn between torn between a human and altered state. Outriders occupies a strange middle ground between old and new game design. Isn't they dented. Crisis that weakens the current experience.
Can Tampa Bay Win A Second Straight Super Bowl
"Well in just his first season with the team brady has already brought a title to tampa buccaneers controlled. Much of last night's thirty one to nine super bowl win and brady is poised to keep winning saying after the game quote. We're coming back. You know that we do know it. And i personally love it shared. And how do you feel about is brady. Started his second dynasty in tampa skip out of his tour to detail. And if you made me say yes to say no. There's a reason why no team had repeated and sixteen years because it's hard to do and you see. Injuries are big part of this. So because we saw what happened to chiefs offensive line. They lose basically three starters and they're not the same team that they took to the super bowl the previous year. They're not even the same super bowl that would that finish the afc championship game. So injuries player key role in And plus a lot of things have to go well the injuries during the course of the season. I don't believe the pandemic. I think we're getting more and more vaccines arm and President biden was talking about last night. Say i expect the pike house for super bowl fifty six. Hopefully that's the case. Where is so fi here. Oh you're be out. I thought i'd be right over luma and plus get if you think about it. They got shack bags. A free agent. Labonte david i believe. They bite price themselves out of contracts tampa although they might be willing to take less money to come back to people. It's with jack man. Considering that he was an undrafted free agent and leave any money on the table of. Aren't they david that might be something dominant. So leonard fournette and tonio brown gronk. I believe a couple of those guys you can get back on the cheap but skipped the only have thirty guys on the contract for next year. The next is a that is forty two in the nfl their fifty three man roster only thirty the contract So who comes. Who goes is so hard to repeat because the turnover is so great now what we know right now for the most part. All the coaches are coming back. Tob old didn't get a job by relent. We didn't get a job and so for what we can see right. Now get the coaching staff. We'll be back in full. There was some speculation. That bruce arians if they won this one would would see the the head coaching to talk balls and maybe either being the background or walk into the sunset. I think this was such a headache experience for him at his age. He'd say i gotta take another shot. Hey could you remember. Meal did that and he later regretted he came. Back out of retirement ended up coaching kansas city. Yeah because he felt he made a decision out of emotion. That was the wrong decision. So maybe a fist back a couple of months but it's hard to repeat. There's a reason why there have only been in an full of teams now in the last thirty years. That's ever done it because it's so hard to cobb was dated. We did it and the patriots did it.
A protected right? Free speech and social media
"President Trump was banned from Facebook and permanently banned from Twitter. For certain inciting language. We also watched his Amazon suspended the right wing social media platform parlor from its sight lawsuit ensued. It's pending. People are crying. First amendment has been violated. What are your rights are their First Amendment rights when it comes to Social Media and consortium media banned people for reasons that it feels are appropriate. Joining us to talk about this is very interesting is she was Eric Goldman. Who is a professor of LOT Santa Clara University School of Law in the Silicon Valley, his co director of the high tech Law Institute, and he is gonna explain it all to us. Hi, Professor Goldman. Thank you for joining me. My pleasure. Thanks for having me. I'm gonna start by asking you Is there a first Amendment right that a person has to use Twitter. The short answer is no. The First Amendment only applies to state actors entities of the government. Since Twitter is a private actor, private publisher. It's not covered by obligations that the government is So in and I just I wanna explain it this way. If I am saying things that are harmful or offensive, and I say to Twitter what you have to publish them, it doesn't create a First Amendment problem for Twitter. Meaning Twitter can't be forced to publish things that it doesn't believe are appropriate. Is that a fair way to look at? Yeah, that's 100% correct. In fact, if you look at the First Amendment guarantees the right to freedom of speech and freedom of the press, And so when Twitter is choosing to publish their party content, it's acting is a function of the press. So the First Amendment applies under that freedom of the press obligation Now, people there's something about it that Is driving everyone crazy because in this country, we believe we can say anything at any time. And who is it? Who are our Amazon? And who is Facebook? And who is Twitter to tell us what we should be hearing and not hearing. Explain to our listeners. Is this fair and I guess there's two questions. Is it fair? And what are the legalities of that? And what are the What are the ramifications of that? Yeah, it's the same question that we have with your own radio station that everyone's listen to. Right now. That's radio stations are obligated to provide air time to any listener who wants to call in. He just him screaming in terms of who calls in and then if someone's out of control, saying things that are inappropriate, you're going to cut the mic off and none of that. Whatever assume is a violation, their First Amendment rights, they would say. That we expect this radio station Tonto cater to its audience. So the entire premise of um WGN making sure that the broadcast continents fit for its listeners. It's identical to the thought process that we applied to places like Twitter or Amazon that they're going to publish what they think it's fit for their audience. I'm going to give out our phone numbers. I'm better. Some people have some questions for our professor here. 3129817 200 Let me play doubles advocate here and you look at the statistics on where people get news and this is so different than it used to be. When I was a kid. We was all the newspapers and and news on television, And now much of it is done on social media Getting news from The Internet and and things that are published online. How fair is it to have certain people be in charge of deciding what's harmful, inoffensive and what's not, and a lot of people are saying, you know, I hear all this horrible racist stuff that we, you know, on Twitter, but yet we are president can't be on Twitter. And what did he say? And what How is it that that was worse than what somebody else said? How is this fair? And how should we deal with this from a legal perspective going forward? Well, I think that people have very different views about what's fair. So I find that when we start shifting the evaluation metric there, um I think that we're probably not going to end up agreeing that a zoo community But just you went back to talking about how things were when you were kids. I don't know how far apart we are in aged, But when I was a kid in the mid 19 seventies, there was one local newspaper, and there were three television stations that could reach a community, right? WGN was one of them on and in those days, um even in when there was such Linda channels to reach a community there was a Supreme Court case called Miami Herald versus Tonio with the Supreme Court said You can't force that newspaper the only one that's catering to that local market to publish content that they don't want to publish that violates our freedom of the press. And so, it's said. That's true, even though that paper might have a local monopoly, even though there's only that one. We still don't think that that's permissible under the First Amendment. We're making incursion on their free speech rights. So you see why the conversation about fairness is so difficult because I want the right deal. Say whatever I want whenever I want. You said that earlier, um but but the reality is that we have to look at all the different competing interests when we think about Uh, who gets the right to say What toe Which audiences? Okay, so again, I'm just gonna go over this, because is there any obligation on the part of Twitter? Let's say to be fair, meaning if I said the same thing you said, and they cut me off and they didn't cut you off. Do I have a right to sue? Do I have a right to somehow have a legal argument that I'm not being treated fairly and I deserve to be treated fairly. It's a really great question, and I think it really gets at the heart of the challenges or bedeviling services like Facebook or Twitter. They really aspire to treat like cases equally. That if the Jackson birds, we say, said, by people in the same circumstance that they would apply the same rules to those that's an overwhelming challenge. It's actually not possible with the volume and scale that services like that engage in. It's simply not possible them toe always treat like cases equally, despite their best efforts, despite their intent. Um, but the reality is that because they're deciding what's safe for their audience, even if they make an arbitrary decision, one of which a content that was okay on day one from person A first would be a day two is cut off. That's their prerogative, and that's actually quite legally protected and their several layers legal protection. Provide Twitter Facebook, the ability to make those classifications sessions decisions, even though they're not going to get him all

Johann Sebastian Bach 3: What's a Concerto?
"Kids. Concerto comes from two Italian words with sort of meanings first concerto means in agreement or together like the word concert. You go to a concert to hear people playing together but the Italian word contract. Tari has to do with struggling. And a concerto also has to do with one or more solo instruments doing friendly battle in concert with a larger group. Italian COMPOSER GIUSEPPE. Torelli gets most of the credit for developing the instrumental concerto. In the late sixteen hundreds an Italian who lived a bit later on Tonio Vivaldi wrote Zillions of Concerto will actually only five hundred or so. But it seems like Zillions Vivaldi's most famous set of concertos named for the four seasons the earliest concertos were written for violins. But you can have a concerto for any instrument. Here's one that you'll have nipple Makoma road for trumpet. One for cello by front-seat high one for Tuba by Refund Williams who in the late twentieth century Scottish composer James Macmillan wrote a concerto called vinnie Emmanuel for percussionist. Evelyn Glenn you can also have a concerto with more than one Solo Instrument Wolfgang Gone Medina's Mozart wrote this one for flute and Harp Dmitri Shostakovich wrote a wonderful concerto for piano and trumpet the end of the peace sense just like music for a silent movie. Let's because when he was young Shostakovich had a job playing piano for silent movies in box day composers also wrote something called the Concerto Grosso which does not mean. A concerto with slimy stuff. Losing out of it grow is Italian for great. Instead of just one or two soloists. A Concerto Grosso has a whole group of soloists. A smaller group pitted against a larger group. George Frederic Handel. Who lived at the same time as Bach wrote quite a few Concerto Grossi? That's the official plural of Concerto Grosso. a lot of Bach's Brandenburg concertos fall into the Concerto Grosso category in the Brandenburg Concerto.

Were that emphatic. About Ending Symphony frontiers of Haydn wrote one of the quietest symphony finales ever. In Haydn's Farewell Symphony. The players leave the stage one by one at the end. There are only two violinists left. Here's a finale that Dmitri Shostakovich had some real fun with at the end of Shostakovich's piano concerto number one which is really a concerto for piano and trumpet. It sounds like the two instruments are in a race to the finish. Not all finale. Come at the very end of the peace when you go to a play.

Two of Mozart's four act opera. The marriage of Figaro at the beginning of this finale two characters the count and Countess who are married tweet other are having an argument then the Countess's maids is Emma joins into help. The Countess do battle with her husband. One of the wonderful things about this. Finale is that you can always tell who's fighting with whom characters who agree with each other saying together. The finale has gone from duet to people singing to a trio. Three people singing then the guy says Anna wants to marry shows up. He's the one who's marriage. The opera is about Figaro's it's now a quartet four singers and the argument is three against one. The count is the one grumbling while the other three gang up on him but wait. There's more the V to arrive making quintet of singers is someone on the counts side. Antonio the Gardener God. Figaro manages to explain away. What's bothering on Tonio. So he leaves but then three characters on the count side show up. And by the end of the Finale Mozart has taken what started out as a duet and turned it into a Septet seven singers four against three

"Going to talk about birds scooters which are the electric scooters or a type of scooter that has proliferated just about every major city. At least the United States all around the world I know in markets like Europe and I'm North America the middle the Middle East. They're all over the place You nor I have any real experience with a you know these these electric scooters doing nominal GonNa ride one of those silly. I have I tell you I. I have a lot of knowledge about them. But I've never been on one. And maybe that's GonNa Change soon. I think I think I'm due for a ride here but I I would bet if I had. I thought it was a betting person. I would bet that Ben is somebody that has used these if not just once or twice probably a lot. I hope I'm not giving anything away that he doesn't want but he's he lives sort of nearby. He does drive a vehicle so he might be too far to use. One of these but I would I just have a feeling that getting around town. He did live real close and that was no secret. He lived real close to this building in an old Ford Factory. As a matter of fact it's Kinda cool. He was homeless. I mean they made it into apartments. You know But but I know that you know he was real close to here and if you look outside our window right now from our office we're on the fourth floor and if you look outside I would bet anything that we would be able to spot just on the curbside probably a dozen electric electric scooters on the curb waiting for people to use in probably two or three in motion. You know people on them in bike lanes would yes. I would guess so. And even when it's raining you may even see a few in the roadway that have been washed down down which I have seen that before too window out here. Have you really washed downstream Yeah Yeah Torrential rain down here and then you know with all the hills and everything ends up being like milk. Small rivers running through downtown. If it rains it's A. It's a disaster practically if it rained the more than about an inch. And that's you know. Part of the problem with the scooters is exactly that the fact that they are relatively lightweight and just can be scattered about Willy Nilly. Oh I know we're gonNA talk about that because parking is an issue with these as well but Just for those. That don't know what we're talking about. It and I didn't didn't think that this is really going to be an issue until yesterday when we were talking off. Air About this This program in particular and I said well. We don't really need to describe them because everybody knows what these are right and you said probably not. Yeah most definitely. I mean they're in a lot of larger cities in the United States and around the world but there are plenty of places that do not have these scooters at least owned by these companies kind of dispersed everywhere as a mode of transportation. Yes sure you're in a city like Atlanta where there's close and we're bordering on seven million people now it's about six million I believe and And you're gonNA find a lot of something like this you go to Dallas go to Where was he recently? San Antonio uh-huh Tonio. Yeah San Antonio there you go to Miami you go to you know Los Angeles San Francisco. They're all over the place and some of the bigger cities In fact I've seen just even there's one brand of bird. We'll talk about many different brands but bird in particular. I think they're in something like a hundred and twenty different markets so it means I guess cities they call the markets but What we're talking about in particular here if you're not familiar is a A kick scooter. You know Kinda screwed that you stand up on. It's got a little deck in two small wheels Handlebar that is coming up off of a stem. You know straight stem in front of you. Normally you would put one foot on the deck and then kick like he went on a skateboard to get moving. Put your second foot up coast on right. These have have a wheel or a wheel motor motor in the wheel electric and drives these things and it actually is pretty efficient at moving along. Pretty good you would think that I would have a lot of difficulty here in Atlanta because of the terrain that I just mentioned it's very hilly here even in downtown but these really move people along pretty good you get up to speed pretty quick and I don't know what that speed it is. I want to say it's it's above ten miles per hour. It's probably closer to twelve or even fifteen. Maybe I would say between ten and fifty s somewhere on yeah again no personal experience on it yet. But I'm going to get there so I don't have personal experience on the scooter either but I do have experience being around them list. I don't ride On the beltline often but it is a nice little connector to get from one road to another sal hit it every now and then and the scooters are are outrageous now the beltline is a walking path. That is it's like wasn't an old railroad line. Here yeah they they do this with many old railroad lines across across the country. They turn them into by gas walking past recreational pattern. Tear the tracks off smooth it out. Put some pavement down and they've got some trees nearby a lot of businesses backup to the property so you can walk to and from businesses. That way I I don't know how many miles listen goes but it's big it's a long it's long Walking path that is accessible folded. Just about everybody downtown. They're always lengthening it. On either side you know they. This one here isn't is not continuously very long. It's like maybe two miles of the section. But they have a bunch of different sections throughout the city that they that you can link up with bike paths and sidewalks and there is one that is in Smyrna Georgia that goes it was all the way into Alabama's called the silver comet. Yes then in Alabama its name changes but it does keep going for a few more miles and Alabama Alabama Aniston. Maybe actually good ways in. Yeah that's that's the example of one of these trails. It's very long silver comet trail. Okay so yeah check into that all right well so i. I think a lot of people are familiar with that type of environment in a city. You know they've repurpose some of these These old train tracks are railroad the pathways that they left behind. Once the railroad has goner honor into no longer in use. But yeah we we find a lot of traffic on that area or on that That walking path they're formerly walking path now it's scooters bikes and all kinds of things early on you know you'd find these things on sidewalks. Well it was a little bit dangerous little iffy you know when you walk out of a business and you know scooter. That's running silently just zips pass ask you go in you know twelve fifteen miles an hour. It's a little bit frightening. Yeah because it happened. It happened often the report of Pedestrian Scooter Collisions And unfortunately there have been a lot of You Know Scooter car collisions. That have happened and will not to let the cat of the bag or anything but I mean there's been several deaths here in Atlanta alone That have led to Some some problems with With the city between the city and the scooter companies. So there's a lot to really talk about here. They're they're it's actually. It's not a bad solution for what they intended for. For the micro mobility I think is what they call it. It's like the last mile transportation is what they the virtue. I'm not one hundred percent. Sure that the the scooters are being used in that way I feel like the e bikes have gotten more of a grip on that type of situation they. They're definitely way more organized like they had the stations. Sion's where you put the pikes to charge whatnot. There's more of an infrastructure there whereas the scooters are just Kind of littered about so you're talking about the same thing only a bike form. Yup the electric city bike is one of them. And there's something called Joe. There's one called jump. I don't remember some of the other names of these. I've got a list of operators operators here in the city of Atlanta that include. You know the names and the number of units that they have but I don't have them broken down by a what type of device that they market into the in ear. So there's There's bird bows bolt. Gotcha jump lime. Lift spin wheels. All these are operating within the city limits of just Atlanta and you can multiply apply this by however many large city centers are nationwide and then also worldwide was. We said you know. Just one of those companies Bird I believe operates in something like one hundred twenty different markets or maybe. I'm thinking of lime. I can't remember which because we had some big news recently about lime Lime has just decided this month to pull out of Atlanta they're they're removing themselves from the Atlanta market because of some restrictions have been placed on them. Yeah San Antonio is another place. They're pulling out of which I found surprising because because I felt like they were everywhere in downtown San Antonio. Yeah but you know. Here's the confusing thing. Is that a lot of them. Look the same. These all have the general shape and appearance appearance of each other. They they might have a little bit of Different sticker package or different color combination. That they use you know red and black or purple Black Green and white or whatever it happens to be there all branded handed in a certain way. But maybe we're seeing you know Bird scooters and thinking they were lime scooters and it's easy to confuse very

One Direction's Liam Payne Threatens to Sue San Antonio Bar After Getting Into an Altercation With Bouncers
"Celebrities. were out of control over the Thanksgiving break so so many celebrities behaving badly like Liam Payne formerly of one direction. The twenty six year old was in San Antonio Tonio Texas with his teenage girlfriend and they were celebrating the Thanksgiving break on Friday by going out to this bar. Now we live in America. You and I both know the legal drinking age here is twenty one. His girlfriend was underage somehow. She got into the Bar Dr. They left the bar. I'm assuming though don't quote me on this. This is a total guess. I don't know the reason why. But I'm guessing he left me to have a smoke break. Tried to get back in and they would not let his girlfriend back in. Things got heated. He claims that the bouncers there's pushed him to the ground which maybe they thought it was reasonable force may be. He was being totally out of control. I I mean there was video that was leaked or that went a little viral and he seemed very agro like without literally say. Don't you know who I am. MHM that kind of Spiel and at the end of the day. I don't feel bad for loving it because it's not that serious okay. He he was just being dumb. He's still young even though he's twenty six and he's not a kid. I think as I said before in this podcast. If you've got a two in front of your age you can be as dumb as you want to. You can still have the excuse of being in your twenties. And it's not like he was drunk driving. It's not like he caused physical pain to anybody. So it's okay to like find this amusing and silly and sloppy and. I don't think anybody an apology. which he did not apologize A? He actually threatened to sue the bar which I loved. I heard he took that tweet down. He said he was going to sue but then removed that tweet tweet. INSTAGRAM's story story. Okay I don't I smell entitlement. That's what I smell definitely But that's not the worst thing ever no. It's not bouncers are well versed in how to protect themselves and how to do the right thing for each situation. They don't always get it one hundred percent percents right but I doubt we'll hear anything of this again. Yeah although a lot of people are now also questioning which I don't i. I don't think they would lie about this. They're questioning the age of his girlfriend. She claims to be nineteen but a lot of people think she's actually only eighteen. It doesn't make a difference either way like she's still legal. She's too young to be in the bar. The Bar you need to be twenty one is still legal to date him or have sex with him. Oh that's as long as she's over eighteen or even seventeen seventeen in some states depending on how old he is weird different laws in our country. It's not one umbrella umbrella number.

Did the Raiders contact Antonio Brown's agent before Brown apologized?
"Something i wanted to get to the bottom of was did the raiders in fact contact. Rosenhaus awesome tonio brown's agent. I've seen this kind of float around but i'm not sure that this is what happens i wanted to see if either of you know <hes> if he was contacted before we're antonio brown's apology on friday and told that the guaranteed money and his contract would be voided as it was at that point so at that point basically antonio only lebron's going in apologizing knowing that the thirty million is a hit is that something that we know was already told to him before the apology or i don't i think to <hes> the bottom line on that is that they didn't have to i mean he knows as well as anybody once they imposed that discipline. They have the right to go after it so i mean i think he's smart enough to know without having that conversation that that was what they were angling for. It was clear we talked about <hes> when we first saw these letters on wednesday basically all those letters. There's are is is a legal paper trail down the road to say here's what happened. We had we had these issues. We had to find him. This is what went on that's all. Those letters are for <hes> so i think rosenhaus kind of knew he probably explai- tube and there i'm positive on some level even though no it's illegal according to the rules of the n._f._l. Under the c._b._a. I'm positive that rosenhaus was talking to other teams and saying if this happens if the contract is voided if for run out what is the market and i'm sure he knew what it was and so like. Did he know those things. I don't. I'm sure he did was explicitly laid out by the raiders. I'm i'm not sure about how that worked but <hes> i'm sure he knew exactly what the situation was yeah so in other words. He knew the patriots were looking at him and that he could play there. Air instead of explicitly said i'm sure he knew what the market was. When you think of maybe this is like a wild theory and so. I got on tin foil hat. You're so picture that all of us but if <hes> excuse me antonio brown got to the raiders he was happy happy for a little while then started practicing with these guys right maybe gets the training camp and he's like what they're not going to be very good and then he's just decides besides you know what bleep this. I'm just going to act ugly. I'm gonna throw crap all over the walls until i'm just going to keep doing it. Even though you tell me to stop even though you tell me you know i'm gonna find you find me on posting on instagram like i'm going to now make it even bigger mess and then he knows that he enforce himself out because he knows that there's maybe a winner. That will be there for him. I think that it's not out of their own with possibility as i now take my tinfoil hat off and put my reporter reporter hat right back on that. This is something that could have happened because when it's five hours after somebody releases you that you are with defending super bowl champions. There's maybe somebody should look into that right. I mean i think i went once the further with my tin foil will happen i tweeted and it was more of a joke but <hes> as as everything in my life does it relates to seinfeld but there was there was an episode of seinfeld where the mets wanted to hire george costanza away from the yankees and they couldn't just hire him because it would be tampering and they wouldn't be able to go hire them away from team so they told him to do everything he could to get fired from the yankees. He started dragging the world series trophy around he was wearing babe ruth pants from the yankee museum. <hes> everything do get fired so that the mets would be able to hire him like in my mind. Bella check like a go create chaos out there. We need to bring you in. That's the only way we can get you and that's again a complete and total conspiracy. Uh but i like to think that it's true. Let's talk about some of the possible reaction and we can expect here from the raiders because i wanna in a hypothesize what derek carr might say about antonio brown's tweet of bumper cars meaning. He and his brother david had been doing some conversation about antonio brown. That's what i interpreted that tweet demean. I can't imagine it would mean anything else so cars generally very nice well-spoken guy in front of the media very even temperament. Do we expect any crazy reaction from him. Certainly not i mean he's a quarterback right and quarterbacks are always is going to be measured in what they say. Now i do sort of wish that we have been hearing directly from derek carr instead of through really an intermediary as his brother on n._f._l. Network right. I think especially because derek carr was in the locker room today and we were told as he came back in that he was not going to be talking and and that's fine. He certainly has that right and he's a quarterback. He speaks one time a week but i just think it would have been nice to hear directly from derek carr car <hes> since you know he had been nothing but supportive i totally respect dirk are not talking but i think that you know it just it just would have been nice to hear from the quarterback in that particular situation and he doesn't have to but he could've essentially descending out press releases. I mean through his approach. That's what he's doing in. They're not it's not it's not like they're being secretive about it. I think that's that's the one thing i'll say about this is like if it was just some secret that if it was some random person in the media and derek carr was feeding things to get it out there and not talking to the media locally but hey i'm gonna feed this to whoever you you know whatever national reporter and it's coming out saying oh source close to the team said like that would be a little bit different to me than in this case. It's basically his brother going on tv serving mrs mouthpiece and saying explicitly. I talked to derrick this morning. Here is what he said. I think they're being pretty open about it. It just it clearly rubbed antonio radio brown the wrong way and you know we saw the other day he unfolded the raiders and derek carr on instagram and then reformed the raiders but not car like that was pretty telling of where they are have a check dam sure he unveiled the raiders as well now he did. Yes yeah <hes> but you know. I think that was incredibly telling that when he did follow the raiders he did not re follow derek carr. You know i it was pretty clear that that relationship was was heading in the wrong way. Even though derek carr continued to say how close they were and how they've played well after field and here's the other thing it listen it's part of the job we understand but how many times jon gruden was asked how many times micmac was asked just how many times derek carr was asked about the distractions in about everything that's going on and how many times they basically said. You're inventing this you guys the media are inventing the story story. No no weren't by the way to the same thing to the readers out there to the fans out there like these things are not invented. There's a reason isn't that story. Lines are storylines. This was something that was going on and it was bubbling over all the time and it was distracting the team. It was bothering the team. It certainly had been an issue for a while and now it just has has reached that point where they couldn't deal with it anymore but i think it would absolutely not be surprising if it was something that tonio earlier brown was like i need to do this i need to get out and this is my way out and the other thing is it wasn't blown out of proportion either. That's the that's the phrase that like gets on my nerves a little bit. <hes> men like all these things you're saying. They were blown out of proportion. It's blown out of proportion. He's just a wide receivers blown out of proportion. Friggin von miller said that on on a conference call the other day no. It's not blown out of proportion when you're yelling at g._m. In practice right you're posting your fines on instagram. When you ask on instagram to be released win. You recorded your ahead coach with a stencil your head coach with the conversation. Put it on a two minute youtube video in a two party consent state. I don't really think any of these things are being blown out of proportion so i love what jonathan abram had to say on twitter and he put this out just about a little over an hour ago he says in today's world the worst drug there is called attention

My objective is to get things worked out between antonio and the raiders so he can fulfill phyllis contract and do what they brought him in to do.

That's what more can you describe what happened specifically specifically so we hear it from the horse's mouth during practice with mike mayock yesterday we'll i wasn't there and i'd rather let the internal final stuff. Stay internal. I know there's been a lot of speculation.

In my typical fashion hollered up there and said, this is going to be just like two thousand thirteen and I didn't know is going to be very very similar, but winning the game was just like two thousand thirteen. Started. I think I think it's just a resilient team. I don't have any problems doing it. I don't mean that like I'm just saying that we've been through a lot of games a lot of these veteran players have. But I think it's this team. They wanna close game of Seattle won a close game. The titans in London. We lost a close game in Denver. We went to Pittsburgh and found the way. So I don't think there's anything team believes we can't do. Now that doesn't mean we're always going to do it. But I think you know, it wasn't a very happy sideline for most of this game. But it wasn't a dejected sideline. Like here we go. Again, it wasn't bad where you know. It's hard to fight against that. When you're going forward twelve and five eleven and not winning these close games. So having had some experiences where we've overcame some things. Once some close games. Nobody was panicking. You know? Well, we scored with three and a half minutes left. And we got the blocking the back on the kickoff is it, isn't it? Glad to get it back and tied up. I didn't know two. Glad we did. And. Hageman effort Brannagh ball like those two rookie Bax hundred fifty yards rushing. And Tom possession was good third downs. We're good. Other than those two turnovers. You're played pretty damn good. We really went how we wanted to go. Keep those guys on the sideline and convert their house and scored scores much. We wanted to Gaza from a tough pass rush. If you're playing wherever you playing play, I'm here. It's even tougher 'cause you laid off the ball. It's loud. And then the receivers all stepped up with Keenan McCain out. Yeah. That's right. That's it right there. No Melvin Gordon for this game. They lost Keenan Allen. But they had Philip rivers and a fellow quarterback. Steve Young certainly appreciates the play of this veteran. Doc went up for the old guys Philip rivers and the charges down to scores in that building to that team. And they come out with a witty I'll get to the two point decision in a minute. But just if you can take me through down to scores in the fourth quarter with time really exhausted. By that drive before they got the ball back. How did the charges managed to pull this off Scott? It's a team that has gotten a lot better. I mean, the weapons that Philip has the defense that continues that difference in front is no joke. I mean in many ways people's the charges, they're eleven and one over the last twelve games who knew I mean, it's like this team has been put together over a little period of time and Anthony Atlanta's energize it kind of like Jim Harbaugh when he joined the forty Niners all the sudden team just Joe. And there's guys you don't come back like that in the NFL late in the season playoff, unless you are the real deal people don't just tricked their way through it. And so to me this is a very substantive team that now looks at maybe being AFC west champion possible and send the Kansas City Chiefs on the road. Yes, they do have some weapons, but they're down some weapons in this game. Keenan, Allen's out at the hip pointer. You're down to your third string running back and the throws. And I defer to you as a guy that had to make throws on the fourth down. Throws thrown them to Benjamin. I mean, how do you? How do you describe the throws he made that he had to make her the game's over? It's called anticipatory. Throwing in other words, you only the veterans only the best do this. And they know because they have to let it go ahead to come out early. And the receivers not tuck, can you tell their heads turning early. They know that that ball's coming as soon as they break, even though there's like inches between the defender, and to me that's just old pro throwing and you can't teach you you have to live it through you have to live through it. You have to learn nobody's. Natural at it. You have to just and that's what Philip rivers been doing for a long time. He just didn't have the players drew Brees. When he finally got a defense the Super Bowl. Phil burbs. Get some guys gets a defense. Maybe it's the Super Bowl Steve Young sportscenter with s p Patrick Mahomes held to just two hundred forty three yards. Two touchdowns for Casey his inability to pick up a first down in the closing minutes was ultimately costly for this chiefs team homes post game they have a good defense. And when you don't execute, and you get penalties and stuff like that they stalls out drives. And so we got some game scores. Whenever we needed to move the ball at the end, we didn't execute. And so. It's kind of recuperate and come back and try to win these next two games..

They're just they're not the wholesale kind of Milton Friedman style income share agreement. Yeah. The linked to services, right? So I think this concept is is popular with professional athletes entertainers because that's how people do business in agency in until you figure out what an agent is worth. But they're linked to really viable services. That agents are publishers provide similar amid it's not it's dissimilar from what the motives for colleges in colleges are about the average case in with some downside protection in.

And we're linking ISA like about terms to services that are also valuable out taking the services out of the out of context, then you're competing, just competing. Just sell money.

Or not at scale will this was your marketplace's solicitation, I I should have gone into early. I think competency is going to be getting people to website in parting giving you money, you gotta find you might as well sell everything at that point. So it whether it's if it security is replacements, or if it's products, or if it's something if you have to do all the work to get people retail people whose job is not buying your everyday, victim, institutional employees to your website. It's still hard to acquire that customer. You have to you have to make the most of that sell them everything possible. And I think crowdfunding itself as a competency as opposed to doubling down crowdfunding with just fry as is as we just crowdfunding is as or to own right? And I think somebody who narrowed that down maybe a giant is say market globally. That's a business that seems like really hard thing to me in the Tonio opinion. I know some people succeed what Elliott crowdfunding models. So you're saying that if someone is exceeded that building a kick starter for people as relates to college earth Raffray Remez, well, you'll create the entire platform for all types of is as it seems to me that actually beyond that that this.

If we added I essays because we don't have a way to back non corporate projects today, for example, like today kick-started product marketplace, but they have a lot of people coming to the site and checking things out, but I enjoy I guess generally. Saying if it's not backing things for entertainment or novelty than it's, you know, for financial return from knit names would turn you'd want to sell other investments, not just exposure to the future earnings people. Only of saying I agree with his, you know, crowdfunding like a little industry it's not off and it's all won't good. But in many ways, it's a hobby compared to the main financial markets in the world. So to be honest, like if you're really interested from financial perspective in investing in ISA's, look for Sony. I don't know like Blackstone or something have a forty accident under black rock to have a forty act fund that you can put money into like a mutual fund and that to me would be assigned that while there's is huge thank in.

When your insurance or you, and your local government would be really good for that industry would probably bring a different kind of pricing transparency in price in pricing discipline. Isn't there another area that was actually being exploited when Tony own I work in this thing together years ago is professional athletes? You know, there's a lot of classes of athletes who have to toil a longtime earning little to nothing the hopes of making it big, and you know, that could be on the tennis circuit or could be one of the big team sports replaying the minor leagues for a long time at cetera or just athletes that may be central to get endorsements. But there's a lot of time up front where this little to no income yet enormous amount of effort required in athletes can have a lot of upside downside in the careers based on injuries or what plays out or dozen ten. So that's a whole area that I know. In fact, me we for while we're working on a almost dedicated. Channel within upstart focused on athletes. We had suckled that were aspiring Olympic athletes cetera was also at the time out Tonio remembers that come to a fantastic's that was essentially like a stock market where you know, for athletes earnings in specifically professional football players is where they started. And they may well still be around for all I know. But you know, it was a little bit of the income share agreement applied to a professional athlete, and which had him, you know, a lot of the same challenges. But I think it just strengths are other use cases that have some high utility. In fact, I think there are a lot of athletes that have contracts they may not be in a in a fancy company, but just contracts that essentially allow them to hedge their future earnings in against injuries things like that insurance policies that known her time begin to have a shade of income sharing a to them in in. So I think there are actually some some precedents for it. That makes sense Savino is. Awesome ledge and thin. I wish I had invested in early.

"There is a a guy Tonio may remember his name who has a professional gambler. I think who had created some these contracts and gotten friends to sign them. So there was all sorts if you do enough internet searches by rich uncle was a company founded on the concept of of student loan. That you would pay back fraction of incomes. So there was some history of it. But nobody really put it all together brought it to market. Well, and you know, we nationally thought we could be the first to do that. And ultimately at least the the approach we took in the part of the market, we targeted just wasn't ready for what we wanted to do. Yeah. It is interesting. This is really the idea that that won't die right assert as as initially conceived. You David I think one of the reasons why you do this podcast is to point the dozens or even hundreds of people that have asked you over the years pointed to to somewhere, they can hear your story how you pursued it and with the opportunities are. But what what I'm curious about is is the upstart model as you initially conceived. It was right just ahead of its time. And if so what are sort of the bottlenecks or barriers that need to be removed bricks exist, the sort of consumer mainstream able while I think. A lot of the contracts behind it in how looking to whiteboard whether that when he makes sense in the price for you know, all that can be sorted out. I mean, generally speaking, creating liquidity where there's no liquidity is generally is a good thing. Right and the proper controls in oversight. Absolutely, no reason why transfer of wealth from your future to your present. It is something that couldn't add value to society in some ways. So so to me the basic construct is still sound and has a lot of potential. The question is where does it start where it makes sense to start in? I think, you know, Tony on his company or are onto it when you are either begin about to start college, you're in college in your choices really at that time take on significant student debt or take on an instrument that mitigates the risk that comes with student debt and with an income share agreements style funding of higher education. You know, I think there's really some value there. I think that that's a play. Where I don't feel like I'm actually betting against myself in some sense. I don't I don't feel like I'm being Hagan advantage of I feel like I'm going to get a college degree in. I'm not gonna have this for Nabet that's gonna crush me. And also with the money coming not from some wealthy individual. But from an institution who I also got my degree from feels a lot better to me feels like just invalid because it's coming from you know, a named university. They hopefully if they're doing it in a smart way, you know, your interests are aligned seditious a lot of reasons why that's a cleaner in safer starting point than what we did. Which was out out in the wild of the consumer marketplace with investors and individuals, you know, coming to the table together that matches to me much harder problem to solve. So we started a hard place. I think at with Tonio company, you're doing is a more realistic starting point in having said that you know, some for years from now, I don't know how many win. It's really well established as alternate to fund higher education. Of course, all other uses of any use cases or other potentials for that form financing. I think will become unlocked over time. But the regulation will be ready for it. People will have it. It'll won't sound as nutty as announced it in two thousand twelve and I think it will be viable former finance her certain unit types of use cases. And as I said in more quantity is good. So so I don't see any reason why it wouldn't be successful. More successful overtime. Thanks for saying that about Dave..

Eric in big, you may not know this, but the head of the income share agreement business. Vima faces alternative education. Accelerated learning providers general assembly was one of Dave's upstarts, so shenice Chowdhury your be mo- daughter start in essays as an upstart. Yeah. I should say there's been several upstarts that have done fairly phenomenal things. I was at Goldman Sachs conference last couple of weeks ago and was sort of a top one hundred entrepreneurs and one of the women aren't Trina speier who had been one of our early upstarts is the CEO or co founder of this apparel company called figs that was at this event. So she phenomenally successful company. She created in southern California with co founder, there's another woman Jill Burks who started a company called part fix, which is just a really super interesting kind of supply chain related company. There's a guy created a medical product off Google glass. So they're actually some awesome success stories in, you know, that's probably for me, the most rewarding part of all of it is is it actually whether whether we directly helped or not I cannot obviously answer that in wouldn't really try to claim that. But to me just to see that some of the people really did have some exceptional places. They landed after. After they were with us. What's it on the investing side, what type of data would people could have seen her or gotten that would made them more comfortable making invested decisions? Ibo we showed with, you know, not terribly dissimilar to linked in profile in terms of your school in your your work history. And you know, some sort of statement of who you are what you wanna do kind of a personal statement. But there there wasn't, you know, a along behind beyond that, it wasn't something realistic for people's for try to understand, you know, what this person was likely to earn. Whether this would be worth it, which is why Paul's model, I co founders model of essentially saying, look, we're gonna build a model that's gonna predict somebody's Satistics likely earnings over the next decade Mirghani use that along with the kind of hurdle rate to decide you know, how much money equates to what fraction of income. And so that was sort of one of the more interesting genius things that my co-founder. Had done and that at least made the experience for either the borrower or the investor far simpler because all we had to know as a here's the price. Are are you internet on both sides and about was I would say that was smart decision in in. I don't take personal credit for it. But not necessarily enough to win the day in the end.

Do they have similar fates today figure out or any anything that you guys took her was eight of other other people at the time that questions probably best answered by Tonio because he worked for one. I did Eric. I mean, I was there when Dave named income agreements incomes agreements. I think ab- upstart was leading the people in the eyes face space the time everybody's watching to see what upstart was doing. I think they tried to take what upstart did and make it a number of businesses. Try to take up started. Even since upstart not even concurrently. Contemporaneous solid obstructed in tried to mimic that. But what they could see from the outside was how hard it was for upstart to be doing it. You know, you can see the human capital in upstart in has turned into his release successful businesses leading platform without the constraints of having to work in income juryman. It's so people with maybe a lesser team or lesser focus had no hope of recreating upstart success in it while very it's very kind Tonio.

"Today with MacOS Tonio Di Sorrento of Email education at we're interviewing Dave Gerard of upstart guys. Welcome to the podcast great to be here. They assert a no that's upstart is absolutely crushing it in lending. We're here today to talk about is as perhaps you can give an introduction to what upstart is today. And then talk about how that ideas are all in how you initially pursued. What you went up start to be many years ago. Sure today upstart is a consumer lending platforms. So we make unsecured personal loans to individuals, and you know, very shortly other types of products as well, what is unique about us as we use fairly sophisticated statistical models machine learning type of models with create advanced use of alternative data to price credit, and we've built a lot of automation into the processes well. So it's taking very on a traditional business lending in applying very. Modern data science and computer science to the problem of originating credit, and that's what we look like today. Wooded you look like when you first set out to build up start I left Google in two thousand twelve to found star. And if back then was based on the notion of allowing somebody to access capital today by in effect, sharing some fraction of their earning. Potential from the future, it was really a a derivative or an alternative to alone as Tonio knows well, not ever entirely clear, at least at the time weather was alone or not from a legal perspective. But the idea generally that a lot of people that are most valuable asset is actually their future. Earning potential in that earning that potential is all locked up in bailable to them. So how could we create a market of sorts that would allow somebody to tap into future? Earning potential in cul some of that income for that was the fundamental notion of upstart new back in two thousand twelve in what inspire this idea initially what sort of philosophy. How did you get the idea? It was a new idea at summer. It was really an idea spawned just by conversations with people sort of in the post college years who were I just say forgoing entrepreneurial pass because of the presence of student debt making choices in their lives that you felt to me of optimal for the very real a challenge of servicing student debt that they had built up over the years, and whether there couldn't be a way to finance that dead in turn it way. I could go chance to take on more risk in startups and things like that in your twenties. That was kind of the original motivation was was sort of the transference from a traditional debt instrument into something that would provide more flexibility on behalf of the individual. When you first started up start. What was your initial use case you're focused on for is as in? Where did you see yourself going there? Yeah. I mean, we we definitely saw it as a as I said first of all I'd say. The class of people. We were interested in were entrepreneurs or potential entrepreneurs who are sort of post college in that age when a lot of people don't have a lot of other obligations in their lives, and they can take on risk, but a huge fraction, of course, have student data. Nats can be prohibitive for doing the kinds of things you might wanna do in your twenty. So that was sort of a sweet spot was people in that demographic who have entrepreneurial bent to their personality. But for financial reasons felt like it was a challenge in we also envisioned it as as a marketplace of sorts so the money was coming from us, but was coming from investors who are essentially where people who would put money toward this amount of money. You're collecting in would serve as a sort of a board of directors for you in terms of having a real self interest in helping you succeed and would be available to you. And so we thought of it we I remember saying is sort of like fifty percent Kickstarter fifty percent lending club. But really with marketplace where the money is coming from people with faces. Names that you could communicate with and what hap- some interest in helping you succeed. Did you ever think that instead of being instead of being maybe angel list for angels was under this around or big at this time of angels for people maybe being like sequoia terms of doing all the investing yourself?.

I'm going to teach people to buy a new thing if you were going to do the Kickstarter fry assays, and you were successful in getting enough investors there to fund all the ice as you should probably sell once you get those vessels than you should just sell them everything in the world, you should be selling everything, they're not just income share agreement interests, and in that's become your business debt, you know, his sourcing that capital if that makes sense in it, whereas if you're going to institutional investors that is they have their narrow band of what they'll look at. And you have to sell them, the if the make your thing the thing that they buy you have to internalize the complex. Any of that?

I think from the perspective of a person wanting to try something new who has a vision for for change in education or education technology, I think can make a lot of sense to build the thing you envision your way outside of colleges show that it works and get a little data then sell it into colleges or distributes through them as opposing to trying to start with colleges, and the reason for that is that nobody has any imagination.

They like an entrepreneur who wants to get into higher Ed in South Dakota, just do everything they can to model what they're doing outside of colleges and show them that this is what it looks like this is how it works so students interact with it.

Let's the latest with the same Tonio Spurs. Danny green was included along with Leonard in the trade to the raptors, but it turns out he had another thing in common with Kawhi. Green says he played with a groin tear last season. One that went undetected by Spurs medical staff, similar to Kuwait situation with his quad injury. So Stu is the Spurs mishandling of greens injury may be vindication for quite a little bit for what he went through last year. I don't know if Danny Green's injuries vindication so much because I think each of these situations with the player in team is different. In the case of Danny green, this was not a misdiagnosis. I think you had a situation where he suffers the groin injury in December, and he ends up playing with it for the entire year and this Spurs staff is only guilty of one thing and that is not actually going in and taking another am, or I of of the groin. Certainly was strain Danny played, but that's how players are there competitive. But I think for quiet was a little bit of a different situation. I mean, he, you know, he did rehab recover to a point where he was able to play nine games and then later found out it wasn't quite right, is injury had not healed. And then I think at that point he probably got a second opinion and then the rest is history. So I don't know, the Spurs staff is not guilty here. All right. I think each situation is different players are competitive. They wanna play, but some times things proceed in a way where you know the players playing things seem to be fine and maybe aggravated, but you don't go back and say, look, let's shut it down. You don't ever get to that point. In co is case. He decided to get the second. There seems to be some pressure and I'm not saying the Spurs are unique in this, but the Spurs of the team. We're talking about some crusher within organizations for. Guys to not go get second opinions. Danny green in this in this story that he tells on the podcasts talk mentioned his agent told him to go get a second opinion. Now I'm good. I'm gonna trust the Spurs and I and I just wonder if that's a fair pressure to put on players like you would, if a player wants to theoretically be spending his own money and go out there and say, let me have another doctor look at this as much down. John ajmadison stated wigs. Have insurance? No, I understand what you said. Okay, I, I get it see, but you still paid for doctors visits whether you have insurance or not? I get that. I'm saying there's an Ortho pod and there's a pro athlete you call that worth the pot. Hey, sir. Can I come in and see, I'm sure there's not going to be a charge. So when I pay out of your own pocket, my point is going outside of the team, not asking the team to do any work for you to go get a second opinion. I don't know why there seems to be pushed back from organizations to not want their guys to get as much information as possible want any outside influence on their players. They own the players. Bad situation of every guy went out for every injury and got an opinion from a document. It'd be chaos in the locker room in the training stuff isn't that? Maybe I'm confused and that exactly what you said the way you handled your body. Is that any any extra you got you sent to your own doctor outside of the Vikings Nicosia not going to be hard for you to believe. I care what the Vikings tall, right? I didn't care nothing about that. My body was the most important. I had a brother that played in pro sports. I was Atalaya state. I thought we have a hundred and twenty guys at practice. I saw guys getting hurt guys, eight minutes guys out for the year. This guy right here..

"Have no idea why there's been such a fracture in the relationship between leonard and ascending tonio spurs you gotta wonder has that relationship been completely destroyed will leonard has probably put his last game with san antonio spurs could be the kiss so here's the hypothetical if your the boston celtics and in no you get in kyrie irving back you know you get gordon hayward back the celtics have always been one of those teams that has been mindful of star jason they got irving last year they got hayward last year to have all these great asset let's have all these great young players will the boston celtics make a call the senate tonio and see what the asking price may be on one hundred yeah i may call boy i'll tell you this there's one guy who has shown you now in this postseason no questions asked no other way around it he's a flat out on touchable to me jason tatum has shown you he's flat out on touchable so if the senate tonio spurs cody and say look we're interested in making a move for leonard you give us tatum you give us brown and you give the rosier and a first round pick and we're cooking fund danny ainge saying thanks thanks thanks and i'll hanging up the phone now if we're talking jalen brown terry rosier i think for more intrigued i mean if you have a team next year that features kyrie irving gordon hayward jason tatum and co entered with al horford playing a five that team is the team that beat in fact i'm by take them over the golden state warriors next year because you've got the dynamic core that goals they can't handle you got leonard who could lockdown kevin durant you got tatum who could give you scoring you got hayward who can do it all i think that would be the team to beat in the nba absolutely that'd be an amazing team and goals space.
