Should the US Federal Reserve Buy Bitcoin?
"Why the us needs. Bitcoin elon musk and other. Vip's have endorsed it. Here's why the federal reserve should seriously consider btc for its balance sheet. The united states will adopt bitcoin as a reserve asset. Why because it is unequivocally in strategic interest to do so. The question is not if this will happen but when whether it happens within twelve months to years five years or ten years will have major implications for us positioning for decades failure to embrace bitcoin sooner rather than later will damage strategic interests and benefit rivals. Adopting at first by examining how the us and other countries manage their reserve assets. Today we can already see the logic for this transition to occur golden empire today the us hold two hundred sixty one. Million troy ounces. Eight thousand one hundred and thirty-three metric tons of gold or about four hundred and seventy five billion worth this makes the us the largest holder of gold in the world by a wide margin with over two times the amount of the next largest holder germany. Historically there was a very good reason for the us to own gold the us dollar was pegged to its value yet. The us broke with the gold standard in nineteen seventy-one ushering in the fiat currency age that has existed ever since. So why exactly the. Us and other countries continue to own all this gold here. Some of the reasons provided directly from central bankers themselves. Gold is the defacto safe haven asset. It is an insurance policy against any major economic. Monetary or geopolitical shifts given gold's ample liquidity and universal appeal countries can easily liquidate it for other assets in turbulent times. Gold is both independent of any given country's economic or monetary policies while also having a fixed supply on earth with relatively stable supply growth making it an ideal hedge against both monetary inflation and fluctuations in other reserve assets. Gold is viewed as nobody's liability. It cannot be frozen in a bank account or defaulted on when frictions between countries arise combined these reasons with the cultural importance of gold and it's uncontroversial to say that having more golden everyone else is a very good thing. Fort knox two point. Oh bitcoin similarities. To gold are well-documented. Earning it the appropriate nickname of digital gold yet. Bitcoin shares many similarities with cluding scarcity. Stable supply inflation fungibility durability. It also makes major improvements over golden some key areas when gold is in high demand. Minors are incentivized to dig up more of it increasing its supply. Bitcoin supply does not change in the face of demand making it less inflationary and more predictable far easier and cheaper to verify the authenticity of bitcoin. Gold bitcoin is much easier to transfer than gold and cost much. Less to store securely. Bitcoin is easily divided whereas gold is not for these reasons a rapidly increasing number of people companies and institutional investors agree that having more bitcoin than everyone else is a very good thing today. This includes the world's richest man highly conservative long-term thinking asset managers industry-leading companies and the most prominent macro investors in the
Renters Rights And the Mortgage Forebearance extension
"So we have had unprecedented moves over the last year to protect renters and borrowers from facing eviction for renters and foreclosure innovation for borrowers in mortgages and the clock had reached midnight on those programs and there are changes for both borrowers and renner's and there's been so much confusion about this. I want to talk about renters. So as a runner. You don't have automatic protection. You have rights that can prevent innovation but only if you exercise those rights. The rights only extend to people who can demonstrate the have suffered financial harm because of corona virus and. We really have been split as a country. They're tens of millions of people who've suffered extreme hardship with job and the rest and then san tens of millions others of others who actually are in better financial shape almost a year out from the onset of corona virus in the united states than they were before so it is a really story for renters. You have a form you have to fill out that we have a link to it. Clark dot com where you verify the economic hardship you've had you must go to your court dates if your landlord goes after you anyway and the courts are usually doing things by zoom or some other online means. But if you don't appear your landlord even in the midst of eviction moratorium will still be granted relief by the court and you will in fact be evicted. So it's up to you to do the paperwork. Proactively send the paperwork to your land or the landlord pretends to ignore it and files for dispossessed. Ry eviction on you. You must go through the process of protecting yourself in court and also make sure that you keep notes when you notified your landlord the form you provided them. You also provide to the court to assert your rights. The meek do not remain in their apartments. You must stand up for yourself. In the case of homeowners there are more protections because with renner's once the moratorium lifts which is likely this spring that will with at that point. You in theory. You're supposed to pay all your back rent now. That's not realistic right. If you've been unemployed or underemployed for a year but the landlords will be free at that point to move forward with an eviction before moratoriums lift in your financial situation does start to stabilize. I said when not if you want to approach her landlord and see if you can work out a payment plan with them to start working on the back rent otherwise all the eviction moratorium did was buy you time but you still facing ultimate eviction for people that are mortgage borrowers now. That process has split. People who have fha mortgages now have a better blanket of protections then people who have loans that are underwritten behind the curtain by fannie mae or freddie mac. Most people's loans are in fact underwritten by fannie mae or freddie mac the Foreclosure moratorium has been extended ninety more days. Four people with fannie. Mae freddie mac if you are in some kind of forbearance you get ninety days added to that if you need it beyond what was originally a maximum twelve months in the case of fha borrowers you now have protection till early summer till june thirty in order to then work out a new payment arrangement the fha because it is a direct federal agency loan the fha will have fairly standardized procedures. Matt point on what your workout will be how you will eventually make good on the money that you did not pay over the last year in the case of fannie mae and freddie mac there will be a number of different ways that lenders deal with you. They have some Latitude in how they work out. Payment plans with you. The likeliest course that will work for most people is the miss months or full year or so of mortgage payments will be added onto the back of your loan as an additional Months or year or a little more year loan that is for many people going to be the best arrangement but again you cannot be passive. You must be active here and you just don't stop paying and when the moratoriums over you just don't say okay. Everything's gonna be great. You're the one who's got to be active with your lender on coming up with a workout arrangement. What they do in commercial real estate all the time with commercial mortgages are workouts and you will be doing Work out of your mortgage where it works for you and the lender.
What If Scenario Reality Checks
"You guys were living through a nether meaning like yet another historical event. You guys seeing that me more. Somebody's like i'm getting a little tired of living through historical events. Anyway it is snowmageddon or whatever you wanna call it in texas right now. I'm not sick. i'm all of a sudden sniffling as i do this. I'm just letting you guys know that it is my goal to like. I'm going to record the ad within the podcast and all that just. Because i'm a little nervous. I haven't heard from her to say she's not available but i'm a little bit nervous about You know there are so many people around where i live. Who do not have any power right now and so just in case. My podcast editor is not available We'll see how i do all this anyway. But yeah so we're in another historical event right now. We are living through the coldest they keep calling it like the coldest winter event in a generation. I don't know i don't know anyway. It's crazy let's people. Were that are without power. Here in texas Because we're just not prepared for this kind of stuff like this is just like it does not make financial sense for our cities to have and maintain at like snowplows. And there's a instagram. Or that i was that i've been following and she's minnesota and somebody who's like. How do y'all pipes not freeze like ours. Do because that's the big thing we're worried about. Its zoning like everything has to be insulated to a point where it won't freeze because they're used to that and i guess that's not i think here i don't know anyway. It's just a little bit crazy right now so everybody's home and then not even doing virtual school because of all the power outages and all that kind of stuff. Anyway my point is what a lovely opportunity. We've all had over the last twelve months to experience so many. What if scenarios which then gives us real reality checks about the things that we've kept for years thinking what if what if the worst happened. What if such and such happened. Because here's the thing for a lot of people like me. That's part of the reason why we have clutter issues is we can think of all. The what ifs. Sometimes i really have issues with other people in my life. Maybe people who. I live with my family or whatever who. I'm also this way in good ways to like. I think through all the ways that this could go and what could happen so this is what i need to do. Nail in order to be ready and prepared for that and in so many ways in life that is a great quality. I mean really like in so many different ways. It's like. I think through like you need to study this and you need to study this because this is coming and then the anyway. Whatever it's my project brain is great and a lot of ways. But here's where it gets out of control when i would keep stuff in my house. That was making life harder to live. That was making my house out of control because it was more stuff than i could personally handle. It was above my personal clutter threshold and because of that. I have to really be cautious and conscience conscious whatever of You know when my what if scenarios my desire to be prepared crosses the line okay and actually become something that hurts my family more than it helps my family. Okay so this is a great opportunity. We have lived through a lot of difficult scenarios and the last year things that might have been one of those well. This could happen things that were going through our head when we kept so. It's an opportunity to go through and go through your house. Now here's the thing to my goal. Is that these podcasts. Never be like super time sensitive so early. This cold snap. Where texas is colder than alaska is not going to last forever right now but really i mean it's not like it's it's you know it's going to be back above freezing on friday so great but looking back. I think it's really important for the us who have. What if for the future scenarios to go wait a minute and if we find ourselves spiraling in that direction of all the things that could happen in the future instead to go. Wait a minute. Let me be realistic about this thing that i'm thinking i should stay. Should save just in case. I'm desperate let me think about time when i was desperate. Did i use this item. Did i have it in my house. And did i use it or would i have actually used this in that situation. So she's kind of a good reality check for us

What makes Melbourne's outbreak hot or not?
"So melvin is still kind of grappling with a bit of a hotel quarantine outbreak. Hassan we've seen these holiday inn. Classic continued to grow some close contacts have tested positive to covid. There's been exposure sites are added added to the list. This rapidly growing list and while this is happening people in melbourne. Obviously watching it really closely but so people in other states. Because we've seen that. When an outbreak occurs in recent months people wanna act really quickly states when actually quickly cape the spread from spreading as much as possible and so perhaps bought is going to be throwing up again or they might be increased restrictions in melbourne. And sorry can we talk about what it takes for somewhere to be declared hotspot what goes into that decision. It's a really interesting question and clearly. It's something that we haven't clarified. Throughout the course of the pandemic in the last twelve months it's been very confusing and difficult for people to work out when we should declare hotspot if we go back to first principles the key issue here when we declare hotspot is that we're making the coal the visit an increased risk of someone being infected in a particular area. And that if they travel to another area they're going to put that area at risk so the interesting thing the maze of last twelve. It's been real indicated the people's understanding or willingness to tolerate uncertain t and the willingness to tolerate risk. And we've seen how that has been different between the states and we've also seen that evolve even within states where a state would have pulled the trigger on a particular intervention six months ago. But now they're being a little bit more nuanced in response to these the situation so we constantly learning and it's going to be an interesting thing to say what happens this time around the toll months into this pandemic in australia. It seems like the cases coming through now in sort of drips and drabs yesterday. The chief medical officer professor paul. Kelly said that he was absolutely confident. That the infection was a single event going back to the holiday inn hotel. They'll close context though are starting to test positive. Is that something you're expecting to happen or were you hoping that it could just be contained to the immediate staff and residents of the holiday inn. Look i think you always hope that it can be contains at that level but always you always have to have the expectation that it's going to spread beyond that initial chain of transmission and that is why we worked so hard to identify contexts and quarantine them and we identify context context. So we're we're working really hard to put a ring fence around the virus and to halt any chains of transmission so in some ways cases that have been identified. Today have its. Its positive that they were predicted. And that they were in quarantine and so really. It's going to be the next few days that are crucial for us to be able to identify whether we're ahead of the virus or we have to play a little bit more touch
Why Inner Work is THE Missing Link to Your Health with Dr. Mary Pardee
"Mary. Welcome back to the podcast. Thank you good to be back for folks. That didn't hear our first conversation Will be linking to all that in the show notes. We did a really good interview with you. That a lot of people really appreciate it. Which was if you do a modern day. Physical if you're gonna go through a modern day. Physical what are the additional test and also. What are the optimal numbers that you want to be hitting when it comes to vitamin d or like a mega three. Two mega six ratio. Telomeres like you basically walked people through a modern day. Physical is pretty in depth. I think it was like a two hour interview. People really loved it and so they can check that out on the show notes. That was a really fun. One this one is going to be a little bit different. We have a whole host of topics we want to get into. Vaccines wanna hear your perspective as a functional medicine and naturopathic doctor. We're gonna chat about gut health and a few other topics to To come up so. I'm excited to get into it before we jump on the topic of vaccines. I want to ask you where in la. You live in los angeles. I live in los angeles And it's been california's been one of the most strict sort of lockdowns. Although now things are starting to ease backup. You couldn't even do outdoor dining before but now that's kind of easing up a little bit. How has the last year. Like twenty twenty. How is that for you from like a social interactions standpoint. You at least as far as i know you live alone at the moment. Danso for you. And i'm asking you because i know that in addition of functional medicine naturally the medicine. You're super into this whole aspect of mental health and i think that mental health has been one of the things that we have not balanced out the repercussions of strict strict. Strict lockdowns love california. But that's definitely been one of the places how has been the last house twenty twenty for you from a social standpoint and mental health standpoint. Yeah i think this is a great topic. I was talking to omid our mutual friend. Dr omid naim. Yep and he's been on the podcast as well but just yesterday. We had this conversation and we were talking about how you know. We've had a lot of deaths from covid and that's something that we need to focus on for sure but i think that there is a little bit of an exchange that's happening were not realizing the impact of mental health and the deaths. That are gonna come from that aspect of it so we were talking about. relapses of addiction. That are happening right now. Right and we're seeing people relapse at much higher rates because of social isolation most probably they don't have people to reach out to they don't have places to go in person and have that contact And so i think it is something that we're not really looking at as closely as we should be for me. Personally it's been. It was a tough year for sure. living by yourself not being married you know being single in an apartment by yourself without roommates a whole different thing and for me. Personally i had a small group of friends. Rise that i'm going to see these people still And i think that you have to do something like that for your mental health. If you don't have family that are local or you don't have a significant other or a roommate that you live with. You have to kind of make your family And so that's how i went about it and I don't know how. I would have done it differently because i think if you do full solitude isolation and that can be really scary for somebody totally. Was there anything that you tapped into any new rituals or things that you were doing that you hadn't really done as much of in the past. Yeah absolutely it was a big year of Tapping into my spirituality. They the last twelve months. I did more like soul searching and digging than i've ever done in my life And i've heard that being a common theme for other people to really figuring out like what is important to me Was a big was a big part of twenty twenty There's a lot of time to do that. There's a lot of quiet time There wasn't as much travel for me. Either so i was kind of grounded in l. a. and have the time to do that soul-searching but yeah getting in touch with spirituality and figuring out like what is true authentic self. Like what do i want for myself was Was really significant for me this past
Cathie Wood Making Stock Picking Popular
"So tracy here's something that i never thought i would see again so i i started following markets in the late nineties The dot com era and something that i never thought i would see again in my career after that ended was the superstar fund manager. Okay why is that. Well the actually totally true. What i mean is more the superstar stock picker because of course back. In the old days there are a lot of like star stock stock pickers fund managers. You know Peter lynch comes to mind some of the other tech investors back then but these days with et fs with online brokerages that make it really easy for individuals to buy stocks on their own. It really sort of seemed to me like that era had gone bright so i suppose there was this idea that the time of stock picking has come and gone and that if you want to make returns in the market you should just poor all your money into something like an s. and p. five hundred. Etf like a vs tax or something like that and just stick with it and don't bother trying to outperform the market because over a longer period of time. Even the best stock pickers had eventually underperformed. Right i think this mantra of don't try to pick stocks. A if you try to pick stocks. You're probably going to underperform the index and be if you come across a mutual fund or a fund manager. Who's good at picking stocks. Oh it's probably just luck it's not going to last too. You know even if even if there is someone who can beat the market. How are you going to know whether it's actually worth putting your money with them until like this idea that everyone should just index Trying to beat the market is kind of a lose lose proposition. It's really been drilled into people's heads. And i think like you know for years. They're really we just haven't had a sort of another new peter lynch or buffet. There's star quantum maybe some bond fund managers who are known but the idea of like someone who is just really associated with a great track record of picking individual stocks.

Probably in that ballpark as well So i don't know that this drop was entirely isolated to tesla but certainly tussle moved a little bit further perhaps related to the supply of semiconductor. So let's move into that topic For whatever reason. I've had i don't know fifty to one hundred people. Ask me about this over the last two days whether that's in the youtube comments or on twitter or on patriae on a lot of people for some reason seem to be incredibly interested in this in the last forty eight hours even though this has been something that's been discussed in the automotive industry since back in mid december And tesla has already talked about it a little too so we'll go through tussles comments. I'm here as well. So essentially what's going on. I'll go into some links here in a second. But what's going on here is that there is the semiconductor supply shortage which is a factor of multiple different things that factored into it so primarily what has been driving it is two things the pandemic and then the rise in some areas of consumer electronics. So the work from home movement during the pandemic has caused increase supply for things like laptops and stuff like that. That people are upgrading for working from home. The five g cycle with phones has caused an increase from what i gather in semiconductor needs and then the next generation consoles with the xbox one whatever it's called now and the bs five launching those things have worked together to create more more demand in the consumer electronics base and then in the automotive space because of the shutdowns that were experienced in the first half twenty twenty the a lot of automakers cut their orders or their contracts with semiconductor suppliers to help get through that period of time. So what that is caused. Is those autumn those suppliers to necessarily want to cut production. And things like that. They worked through Their safety stocks. So let's let's get into you some comments here from Chipmakers the first one. That i wanna look here. This is from microchip technology. So this is from a couple of weeks backer. Just not only one week back. But they kind of talk about how they got into the situation that they're in In terms of semiconductor in the automotive supply chain so they're talking about how their customers generally pulled back very hard. During the pandemic there was no backlog visibility in this environment. They had no choice to down inventories and safety stock to protect themselves from what looked like severe economic contraction and they saw similar similar actions from their suppliers that worked that they were together for Actually producing their semiconductors so they said during his time no one in the industry was adding capacity. Obviously given the uncertainty about win things would recover And that uncertainty extended significantly as the bottom of market as well so one of the things that they talk about here. That will come back. A little bit later is that they're offering this microchip. Preferred supply program called bs to offer the prioritized capacity to companies. That are willing to work with them. To order. twelve months of continuous non cancelable non reschedule will supply So they're not guaranteeing capacity for that but they're prioritizing people that are willing to make those longer term commitments and because if we rewind it back to the for salvatore nineteen because other because a lot of other because a lot of automakers were uncertain about their demand they were unwilling to give a lot of certainty to these two suppliers. So that's kind of brought the semiconductor situation into where it is today and they're trying to work through this now and that's impacting. A lot of different automakers couple other quotes here just from people in the industry so this one is from continental Major supplier in the space. They're talking about lead. Times for semiconductors saying what with lead times of six to nine months. The semiconductor industry has not been able to scale it fast enough to meet this unexpected growth. In automotive demand which really is a return to previous levels not necessarily new growth than they continue saying quote the bottlenecks from the semiconductor industry expected to continue well into twenty twenty one causing major disruptions and continentals production. So that gives us a bit of a timeline in terms of how this issue looks. We don't necessarily have a scale from that. Then let's move into one of their quote here. This is from Tmc one of the obviously major manufacturers. I think they do like seventy percent of some semiconductors or something like that so specific to their automotive customers They continued to decrease demand for cms t s emcees semiconductors in third quarter of two thousand nineteen. The chipmaker only began to see southern recovery automotive orders in the fourth quarter. Their ceo said earnings call earlier this month
Giving to Create a Legacy
"When we talk about legacy planning. We're talking about you. Typically for our clients that are independent. they're financially independent. Maybe reach the financial transcendent stage. They're talking about giving the talking about making significant gifts to family or to charity. And that's what i mean by legacy doing something to provide for others. that goes well beyond beyond our lifetime. Okay so if i am making a gift some to someone My child or in my case You know i've got a couple of grandkids. Now and i wanna give a gift to grandchild. Is that taxable to the person receiving the gift in other words. Am i going to be setting my grandchild up to have to pay taxes and not necessarily know just like if you give them a birthday present their taxed on that that gift and if you're giving them significant let's they're not necessarily taxed on that on that gift so that's a simple answer. Okay all right. Well i i know that if uncle sam head his way he might wanna show up at birthday parties and start taxing gasoline difficulty. Just just saying the attitude. He's got right now anyway. What about the person making the gift. I is there any ramifications for me if i'm if i'm gonna give a large gift like that that that's where this guy gets a little complex so possibly if the gift is large enough and i and i just want to briefly give some some basic tax concepts and some rules around that not to more people but tax planning is part of financial so we need to talk about it. The basics earned income meaning wages taxable as regular income and so his income from investments like dividends and interest. I think most of our listeners know that. And if you sell an asset that you've owned for longer than twelve months for for a gain you you've realized a long term capital gain and that gain is taxed at capital gains rates which can be lower than tax rates on on regular income. That's just the basics for larger estates and here. I'm talking about very large estates currently in excess of a million. I'm sorry eleven million. Five hundred and eighty thousand dollars for an individual and twenty three million one hundred and sixty thousand for a married couple for states in gifts in excess of that amount of the federal government is going to taxed tax the giver at forty percent well for large estates. The tax could be very significant in here. I think this is really a transfer tax not necessarily tax only a death because you're making very very large gifts that exceeds those limits. Eleven eleven million five hundred and twenty three million one hundred sixty thousand. Those are also taxed to the to the person giving not to the receiver of those assets and then another. There's another level of tax at least in seventeen states plus the district of columbia. They're going to also levy a transfer tax estate tax for example in massachusetts we haven't attacked exemption of a million dollars per person and thereafter estates are taxed at point eight percent all the way up to point all the way up to sixteen percent. Taxes can be part of the conversation and and the and the planning so back to gifting. The federal tax law says an individual can gift fifteen thousand dollars to an individual per year. You can give to your grandchild. Fifteen thousand dollars in your wife can give to your grandchild thousand dollars oak. We call this. The annual exclusion anything in excess of fifteen thousand dollars is counted against your federal lifetime. Exemption which is it which we just described that eleven million five hundred and eight thousand dollars and that so it's counted against your lifetime exemption and attacks form that discloses that gift is required if it's if it's a gift of fifteen thousand dollars or less there's no tax form if there's a gift in excess of fifteen thousand dollars per person per year calendar year then there's a form that needs to be sent to the irs. That doesn't necessarily attacks do you. And your wife give gift your daughter. Thirty thousand dollars in a calendar year. No tax forms required. But if you give her forty thousand dollars you'll need to file a gift tax form disclosing a ten thousand dollar taxable gift. Now your lifetime. Exemption is reduced by ten thousand dollars. There's no tax do over. But now you've your lifetime transfer exemption amount is is a little bit less okay a little bit more detail than you might want but it's an important nation. Yeah that's perfect. Because i think that's a huge in planning for people that can afford it. Peter i'll be honest. I'm not in this category yet right. i'm not gonna. i'm not worried about going over that thirty thousand dollars a year gift. My children or my grandchildren but there are a lot of people out there that are right and they need to know this information. They need to know that can give them an annual basis. They just need to subtracted from the total mountain and play by the rules. Because you know you don't want to get yourself in trouble for sure. I think it's important. I also just from a tax law perspective. We don't we don't know what tax laws will be in the future cert. There's certainly not static in there definitely subject to change so under under the current law the lifetime exemption amount is scheduled to reduce back to the two thousand and seventeen exemption of five million dollars per person. And that's adjusted for inflation and that starts in twenty twenty six so under current law that that lifetime exemption amount goes is reduced from almost twelve million dollars down to almost six million dollars with y when you consider inflation. What happens to those people that have already. You don't reach that that mark. Maybe they've given away eleven million and then it goes back to five million per person are they are the grandfathered in i'm using air quotes there. The grandfather dinners. They're going to be any issue with that. Oh you ask a great question. And the the irs. They have determined that. There's not going to be a clawback. So yes they can make the gift now. It will always be exempt said. It's good so again. There's there's much needed information for those people that are in this situation. There's a time limit right. I mean there's there's kind of a ticking clock on on getting those gifts to somebody before it sunsets back to a much lesser amount. So the great information
What's happening at the protests in Myanmar?
"Maybe we should just start with where we are today so we're recording this uk. Time on tuesday morning. We're about a week out from the code. What's your understanding of. The current situation is on the first of february army took over arrested. The president's in the de facto head of government on succi said that they were acting within the emergency provisions of the constitution. They said that they would hand back. Power after holding elections within a year's time since then protests have been growing every day. They've spread around the country in several different towns and cities over the past forty eight hours. We've seen massive protests in the biggest city former capital. Rangoon may be hundreds of thousands of people on the streets yesterday yesterday evening. The government put out new regulations. And this morning. They also blocked major intersections and bridges as well in the city so the protests i think have become smaller but they have continued at in naypyidaw the capital. We're getting the first reports that someone may have been killed in altercations between protesters and the security forces. So it's a very very fluid time. We don't know what momentum the protests have they seen bay determined people seem incredibly energized in their desire to oppose takeover by the military. But we don't know what's going to happen because this is an army after all that's crushed many uprisings and demonstrations in the past. So we'll come onto what might come next In a bed. But what's your best understanding of why now so the ostensible reason that's been given is unhappiness about the elections but the elections were in november. So why february. So the elections were in early november around the same week as a. Us elections the commander in chief. The head of the army who turned sixty five. This year is meant to retire. I think he had thought that he might have a chance of of becoming the president after the elections. I think he had hoped that the pro army party the union solidarity and development party usdp would do reasonably well as well as many ethnic minority parties. Were contesting the elections as well when they didn't do well when the nfl the party amongst says suci a landslide. Victory the army. I said they would recognize and respect. The results but in december came increasing allegations from the us dp side of massive electoral fraud. And the army commander in chief and others in the army latched onto that and demanded an investigation that call for an investigation was rejected by the union election commission and that led in january two demands by the army that there'd be a special session of parliament to discuss these allegations that was also rejected by the speaker of the lower house of parliament that was followed by ultimatum and parliament the new parliament the newly elected parliament was meant to sit on the first february and the ultimatum was the weekend before the ultimatum past attempts back and forth reaching compromise that failed in the army seized power just on the on the eve of parliament sitting and the promise now is of new elections within the next twelve months so what reason is that i think that the outcome would be any different unless the elections themselves setup in such ways to guarantee a different outcome given what happened in november given the result would elections at any point in the next twelve months produce a different results. It's very difficult to say that they would. I mean the analogy won a landslide. I think with the army takeover. If anything else has g is more popular than ever strength of feeling against other militaries very high. I think the the pro army party would do even worse if elections were held today or unit. In years time. I think a couple of different sort of possibilities. I mean one is that you know. Assess has now been charged with illegal. Possession of walkie talkies communications equipment. That carries i think maximum prison sentence of three years. One thing would be that they would keep her under house arrest for this period through the next elections which is what they did back in. The army did back in twenty ten when elections were held than the other. Possibility is that they would disband the analogy. The other might be that they hold fresh elections and count on the d. says gee boycotting those elections. They're different possibilities. There's also the possibility that they might try to change the electoral system from first past post system to a proportional representation system in which case smaller parties including the ethnic minority parties. Might do better than they might think that they would have a better chance because the army has an automatic hold on twenty five percent of the seats so they actually just need allied parties to to win twenty five percent up to choose the president and a new government

Dissecting Webflow With Digital Marketing Specialist Lachlan Kirkwood
"So this episode armed joined by kirkwood luck is a digital marketing specialists based knee may in brisbane and much like may as background working across tech startups and digital agencies. He's responsible for utilizing the latest digital marketing strategies to enhance conversion outcomes. Luck also runs. Click truro platform to help digital marketers. Connect with jobs they love. I love the idea of that because there is much quake out there but it's not always loved doing so i love that idea lachlan. Welcome to the episode. Thank you very exotic jumping boom crite. Sorry laughlin has the company web flow. And we're gonna pull apart web flow from the outside from a market his point of view we look at what we love what we hate what we're curious about. We don't understand what we think to better and we're going to see if we can work basically web flow from the outside what marketing is doing it. Also a little bit about the that whole space about web design and non code and everything behind that and that movement so lachlan for those people playing along at high. Can you tell us a little bit about web. Fly before we dig into it. Yeah absolutely so. We're pretty ubiquitous right now in the tech industry. It's pretty much interrupting the whole no code. Move it on over the past couple of years and it really has been in the past twelve months that no codes taken. The wolves stolman essentially. What occurred is just tools that allow you to build products without having to actually see kurt itself. So it's almost like visual programming and this certainly being tools out there for years. Things like wordpress that it'd been able to do that full people but the tools a getting won't powerful these days or you can create user accounts and just like dynamic content across websites and being around for a very very long time. Actually it's been through many iterations. I think it was in two thousand and nine found. Start working on it. But the reason. I guess it's gotten so big is because the whole creator right now is booming especially throughout covert wherever almost starting to explore what it could be to build their own businesses and people without technical experience. More in pal emba build anything in the space of a couple of weeks and the other big reason is that the tackles better so you can scale things much better on no code these days much easier to design things with custody. Assess without even having to know how to write. Css and two boys strengths. That's what they specialize in the most. And the reason i chose web flows. Because i'm actually contracting for a company called bubble and they one of the other leaders in the no code base is actually one of our competitors is that i for years have worshipped his marketing strategy. I think what they're doing is absolutely fantastic. So i always take inspiration from one day doing and try to add a little fight onto it if bobble great so this space that i love when something like no code is invented because like you said it already existed my people already using. He said wordpress. Maybe they had weeks or squarespace. And you know he wasn't given a name and then marketers and advertising and branding type people were always brilliant at taking something and then it already existed to a certain degree and then creating a little definition around creating a movement was wet flow. Did you say they jumped onto the nike. Instead of position cells around that or would you think will instrumental of really pushing the whole non code movement hit by the found. That bubble actually didn't prefer or didn't like the cut because they thought it was like another blockchain kind of hardwood before using so they prefer visual program because that is descriptive. As to what it is way floor didn't coined the term. I think the community just started giving it that night because they wanted names for like who they would not software developers but there will so people who can build software so what you call them so they just started calling himself. No code is and where floor really saw about as an offer changes to kinda mold that identity within the industry and they started using that pretty commonly throughout debris raining. They'll using i know they have no code. Which is like yield conference the no code space which the first people to coin so yeah definitely been writing that way and trying to push that as much as they can now and even a problem. Now we're really starting to embrace the whole code movement and use that within content that we share. So let's let's get a little bit into that besides just heads completely around it so people who in one sense no code is in the fact that they they built a website on wakes card but actually the designer of code starts to feel to me like somebody who has an appreciation of code all the need for bespoke but doesn't actually code the base back end. Because when i look at web flood look at their interface. It's a bit more complex. It's not it's not week there is card. You can just go in there and you can adjust by the pixel you can change something from sixteen pixels. Seventeen pixels you can. Actually edit the actual definitions is not just drag and drop is that. Is that how carter defines themselves. It's it's more than just not cutting with no card. That's almost like a simple version. This is much more. It's a bit like being vegan. Not just about not eating animal products. It's about the movement of veganism. No code is basically the vegan so the coding world further point. Do they then shout about. I don't like vikings yes. Yes and yes absolutely on the avid note of myself. And the reason. I contract bob because i was using bubble for year and eventually ended up just out the founders and often producing more full them so i guess i fit quite nicely into the digital market out. My background in tech sought ups. I can read some strings of code. But i definitely can't write anything. Hdl's probably the furtherest. My knowledge goes to. But i certainly have an appreciation for it. I know how important it is and yet there is definitely staple learning cove to tools like web particularly bubble because bubble. You're actually writing logic. You just don't see the java script that you're writing it just visually for you. But it certainly does take quite a bit on the senate and the one of the reasons that i love web blow it so much and i'm happy to dive into the sun is just the amount of content created around education for even just like on boarding people to that product is phenomenal. I think that's one of the reasons why eighty so while you let's trump strains that so what i always do. My first love of marketing was seo. That's the first discipline i got gotten. So my depot position is eight sticker dominion and have a look and look at it and kind of guys. Sixty three thousand referring domains. Thirty five million back lanes but whatever that's worth but five hundred and ten thousand six hundred eighty seven organic monthly traffic. So i'm looking at. Nih risk worth one point six million dollars worth of sea traffic right so good start but to your point you know that half a million organic keywords. That comes from amazing content and that content that goes beyond sort of someone searching for no code web design till this is about understanding the pain points of a persona and giving first and then sort of building from matt can you. You've obviously looked more at the may what what do you feel like. They content strategy is for this particular persona so it wasn't a casa Previously in haas about the found is all web flow and when they initially started a business the actual personas that they created and it was two of them that they just laser focused on. That was all. They focused on building for and the main one was a an existing software. Developer knows how to write code. He knows how sorry they know. How to build custom websites or prox- but they just want a streamline that time so they might be a freelance that might have an agency and they can only just. I'd sell that time for money. And you know the time it takes to build a custom. Product is just much longer than it is to build it on web play with have existing templates or you can just drag and drop elements so that was one of the main problems that we're going to solve the thing you'll notice on that blog is suddenly post a low content around like the industry but then may educational content. Is things like a series where they actually educate those uses. All those personas on how to better themselves. So they've got like a blog series for building Agency oil building a website with good. Seo or even if you're building a costume e stole just how to build that still but how did you first customers how to build your attention with customers how to create a u x so that way you know your conversion rate increases so they really want that cost us to succeed and i think that's why we're succeed so
Jayne Warrilow on How to Bridge the Gap from ME to WE
"Jane warrilow back on dose of leadership on the show. Thank you really really excited to be here again. Early guess. I don't know if you remember that but you were. When the show was in its infancy. You came on. Yeah i did. Well i remember talking about you starting podcast before you even got storms. Yeah it'll landau when we met our long ago. That was ages ago. So i think he's you know i think it's nearly a decade. Didn't seem possible. A decade was just a kid then now knowledgeable and mature all have all the answers. Of course he life grandma s right your grandma now. Oh gosh that makes you feel. I feel like i should get my nicotine needles. Well you always you were a fun guest because you you were talking. I remember that conversation. Because it was. I would say that was at the beginning of the show. We were talking here in the prerecording. About how both of our leadership journeys have of changed over. The years have become a holistic. And i remember i was just kind of. I think this show is has done that for me. At least it. Gave me some alignment and clarity around that. And i remember having you on the show and having this really interesting engaging conversation about that about resonance about spiritual the spiritual side of leadership in so important in connecting with so i attribute that conversation a pushing me along that path leadership has become a holistic right. I mean it's changed quite a bit. How much is it in that decade that we've known each other. How much is your leadership journey changed. Would you think just in the decade. You know what i mean. yeah. I do I would say it's changed massively and probably in the last twelve months it's accelerated would accelerate so much i mean what was the big change. Well i think in some ways we You know with the onset of the pandemic and twenty twenty. I think that It almost pierce the illusion of business. I feel and i and in many ways. I think there were a number of trends that were already there but a lot of people would just getting on with business as usual so you know. Change is one of those things that you know. I humans. we don't often choose change of our own accord and so if you've been do the thing about leadership is it's very different at different stages of career and you know if you've done something at some point in your career that has worked for you. It's really hard to let that go. And then start to bring in something innovative or something new or something more holistic say and so you know this. A lot of resistance still to change You know particularly for a lot of people are at the senior level of organizations in. Have a lot of responsibility now. When covy came along there was no denying. We were in a zucca environment. You know is volatile on certain issues. Complexity some big use and the an everybody this uncertainty rose to the top. And oh you know. Some leaders were really struggling with how to remain confident and composed and do their work at when they were faced with unprecedented levels of uncertainty. And nobody knew what the future hells. So how do you continue to do your work when it looks like the market and the economy around you is collapsing everything that we took for granted like you know. Maybe we were growing at the time when it started and we just assume that growth curve would continue while everything changed and so suddenly everybody was confronted with issues that you know. Some leaders have been dealing with for many years. We're aware of and that just accelerated the changes needed to happen. So i think the last twelve months have been pivotal. Am i think this is gonna continue throughout the twentieth decade.
From wild idea to COVID vaccine meet the mRNA pioneer who could win a Nobel
"Renew and november. When the first cases started the pop up and wuhan china their description of the virus there description of how easily it was transmitted between families once. We heard that we knew that. This virus had the potential to be a bad actor at that moment in time we said. How are we going to get the sequence for this virus and we started calling our friends and china. We called our friends at the cdc trying to get the sequence of this virus the minute that was published. We started to make our vaccines back on. I think it was january twelfth. We started making the first aren a vaccine that day. It has all happened. Unfathomably fast has an at twelve months later and the pfizer and maduna vaccines have made their way through large clinical trials with good results into syringes and now already into millions of arms. But this quite a back story here. We thought that it would be useful in a pandemic. We thought it would be influenza pandemic but you back in two thousand and five. When we made the initial observation we knew that aren a had a great potential therapeutics. Who with his collaborator catala career. How is a good bit to win a nobel prize for the science driving. Mri vaccines. he's one of my guests on science fiction today. What's been lost in the fast pace race to develop covid nineteen vaccine. This past year is a hidden story of dogged. Pursuit of a nollie scientific idea over decades often in the face of skeptics and nice ideas we went through pharmaceuticals venture capitalists. All other people. it said. Hey we have a great new invention here. And they weren't interested. They said now aren as too hard to work with. We don't think it'll ever work and they just weren't interested now with a pandemic bang with suddenly counting on mri vaccines lock eyes and medina's to help save us. But before this pandemic this brand new technology of marigny vaccines had never been approved for use in humans before. It's incredible isn't it. The heddon even made it to the stage of large scale clinical trials in humans. I don't think anybody could have predicted. Just how effective these vaccines were. And i still get chills. When i remember the moment when that announcement was made a few months ago biologist onto fox is future fellow and associate professor at the university of western australia. It has proved the nice as wrong. I mean given that fifty percent effective is the baa that the world health organization would've liked to say as the minimum to be getting ninety. Five percent is just astounding really hardly any vaccines have that level of efficacy. Cullen pat and professor of pharmaceutical biology at monash pharmaceutical sciences. He's team is working on two different. Mri vaccines for covid. Nineteen in collaboration with the doughy institute in melbourne change from the point of view the future of emo toy syrupy and we haven't had a vaccine working against corona virus. Before i could understand the science. And i could see how theoretically it might work. But i just couldn't see how we could actually make enough to be the billions of doses needed for the world. And that's still looking doc- rod it's entirely contingent on just to pharmaceutical companies meeting. The world's entire supply demands including ours here in australia. Will you receive the pfizer vaccine together just before christmas. We did the vaccine driven by your discovery. Can you describe what that moment was like figuring. My family always yells at me. Because i'm not excited enough. And they're right for man who co owns the intellectual property licenses to medina and i dream osman humble kind of guy. We were incredibly excited. When we saw the results of the phase three trial that are vaccine. Worked and of a safe and had ninety. Five percent efficacy. I'm already moved on to the next thing the next back scene. The next gene therapy you. I'm incredibly excited. That this vaccine is working that it's gonna make a dent in this pandemic many think that there's a nobel prize in chemistry waiting in the wings for you and dr katie. Rico what do you make of that. So people tell the too modest. And i really don't do things for prizes or recognition or anything else.
The most important 4-letter word in this economy: jobs
"Begin with the most important four letter word in this economy it is of course j o b s jobs about which we got the january report this morning so seventeen days into a new administration thirty six days into a new year three hundred and thirty five ish days into the pandemic economy counting as we are from mid march last year. This is where things stand. Yes we added forty nine thousand jobs last month and yes. The unemployment rate is down to six point three percent but we are still nearly ten million jobs underwater from where we started and also yes. I know that was a lot of numbers. But as i believe we've mentioned a time or two and as marketplace's mitchell hartman is about to remind us numbers can tell you. Think you're too but wearing economy stance. There are a lot of numbers in monthly jobs. Report it's kind of dizzying. So i asked each of the economists. I shoot the jobs data over with today to pick just one indicator that shows where the economy is eleven months into the pandemic one number that slams you between the eyes twelve and a half million. That's kurt long. Chief economist at the national association of federally insured credit unions. And he's referring to the total number of jobs where in the whole since the pandemic hit in the jobs report. That's ten million however if we had not been going through what we've been going through the past. Nearly twelve months the economy would have kept growing and long reckons. It would have added another two and a half million jobs. Jobs needed to keep up with population growth for new high school and college. Grads immigrants new parents returning to work and a half million jobs. That's an enormous deficit of course and at the pace we're going is just not nearly fast enough to eat into that and now the number. That slams elise gould at the economic policy institute between the is three point. Nine million jobs down.

Welcome rarities Actor to it these days. It's a lifestyle business that you want to get into anything cup. Lack of time it is. It isn't in ninth the fact you you know you eat sleep twenty four hours or so you go to bed at night thinking in still today at the. That's been in this my life. There is not one and go. That goes by that. I don't read something about fishing. Watch something about fishing. Talk to somebody about dishing. It happens all the time. Not a day goes by where some aspect of it is in touch in my life. A part of my life in My closest friends are pretty much involved in fishing industry. Right closest friends. Are that sparks your question for me. L. and that's you know i'm kinda way way beginning of this journey. I've got a small family run company but it's in the hunting outdoor space. And you know. My boys are being raised growing up when we work right. We have stuff to do. There's it's a small family run business. it's not you know. Dad goes to work at nine. And we're we're done at five and let's go do x and y but my question is long term for me. My dad took me fishing law. And now i go hunting and now. My boys are in a hunting company being raised. How did you see kind of the transition of with raising these kids. In the company in fending fishing industry they stayed on and continued to fish and still thrive as that was our was that a positive experience for them. Oh yes yeah. Yeah for a number of now. There's some of them that was not. I'll use my to poison example. My oldest son george in here in heat you shared with the. I'll give you my first experience with it. needs he. He was raised in the business. He worked in. It works wade through until they went off to college in it but he was interested in fishing gets his passion in his case. Was things that move fast snowmobiles motorbikes four wheelers dirt bikes. This is what he loved to do. Sounds like we'd get along pretty. Well do troy and the other hand off from the time. He was a little tiny kid. You could see the seat of he would be back in front of our h- house here a day and night catching frogs and just running up and down the bank catching he'd loved it from the time he was four or five years old internet. Never change he absolutely left. And i just think again. God created all slightly different with different interests and is a good thing. You had one boy in the garage tinker on motors and going faster and you had another guy you couldn't keep at the house. He was taking his fishing pole and he was to the water at four and five. Yeah in in in you and your the answer. Paracha half have respect know. I respect that. They have to be their own person in in in seek out for thinks the all that you know that those different interest levels impacted their right as they were growing up in reading some cases to to what they're doing today you know again my son toys into it in a lot of different areas of my oldest son and interestingly he he he liked even as a kid. You're living on the edge. He here you love the excitement of the snowmobile races today. He he'd get so pumped on yet in today. He's he's the paramedic he's a wilderness paramedic in he's fighting fires -fornia loves the game. You're whites. He likes ribbon on the edge to me. I like living on the salary to belated contentment. That's what i really like. And you know. I follow troy on social media and that that guy is always out doing something. And he's. he's an incredible fisherman. I mean it's it's yet it just anything anywhere any way any loves digging around in offbeat places for a coupla. He's got he's got pack whereas in no matter where he goes scurrying rats. He sees the body of water anywhere. Anything they could hold the fish he just drives up insider road. And rodney goes spacious anywhere anywhere crapping around the country with him because spent he's spent some time out west and i know he's fish some areas where i've been and it's just kinda cool to see that and i do want to ask you a question about that. Everybody has some of those favorite moments. What it was like a favorite moment for you fishing with your kids that you can recall the years ago with troy. I'll give you a. I'll give you my my oldest son that never got turned onto it and here's winter. Mistakes that make made with the there was a series the best tournament series. Starting in minnesota zillion years ago it was called the northstar bash turned into and when he was about four years old. I took an pre fishing. Mary and i got a cabin on the lake. And i took him pre fishing for that tournament with me and he had snoopy rag. You had snoopy rag. And they had to wait spinner baits. Then you know it was cool. We're up in the morning out.

It's something from we'll get more moves out to have been great you you you hold in iraq ruled colin. He looks at me. it looks at the rad. He throws looked at me again. I got the message. You burn me out so bad. And so i think there's a balance there were so you know. My dad took me steelhead fishing. And i've i've got quite a few steelhead to my name. And if anybody out there knows steelhead there they can be finicky and tricky fish to catch i. I mean the passion for catching them is kinda gone. I've i've i've been out steelhead fishing and i've seen this in the hunting industry where you know you get some guys. That are pretty. Some prowess in are pretty successful. They take their sixteen seventeen year. Old son out. He shoots a world calibre elk and ten years later. He's he's not in elk cutting he's into fishing or snowmobiling or something else does. Ruggles images of the other side of that story would try. What are the experiences a for a number of years we as a family.

My mouth says big big pig. Pike some version of chicken for must be done gun with tubes. Big rubber bates. It's it's a jig gonna jk. There's a better way for all kinds of fish all the time anywhere. Get a one sti- family of bates natural leaders acted under the heading up a chick but she was a piece of red or some kind would addressing the guy if might wait if may wait. Four ounces for watering might be a one sixty four for crappie a purple mylar. Jig will work pretty good for steelhead. But i i'm preferential to to top water. Dry fly stuff. I like to see that fish commit. Come out of the water. That's just i. I did enough. You know wet. Fly fishing. That i patrick knows. We've gone on some high mountain lakes. And i just. I really liked to fool that fish to come up all the way out of the water. He's any kind of fishing for musky. Your small mop mop secure rare occasions. Pike tap water breaks. Those are fun if you wanna be consistent year round. Yeah you gotta you gotta get beneath the surface of the water. Yeah my biggest hike. Was i had a fifty three inch. Pike and this thing was was monstrous and it was lake. Naturally larry larry dahlberg and he was filming. But we're reading and got in fake cockney kakatua water are you talk about a memorable experience with that and You know where he's been everywhere to do everything. Yeah yeah you know. He's still thought at their daddy issues. Deck it was unbelievable scene and fifty three inch this. We figured it was mid thirty pounds. You know thirty five thirty eight pounds something again. Maybe it was. It was jackie gigantic for bike. That was half water. Fish birds played beat of ball. That would be. That would be a lot of fun. I now i'm like. Wow that sounds like a blast. But i wanted to change gears just a little bit One of the things that have admired you for years is that you're not afraid to talk about your faith and i think that that's very important thing and you know i want to see if he can share just a little bit about your spiritual journey and how god is played a big role in your life after the two most important parts of my life. The next year shared all all the time. It's fishing in my unity. Go hand in hand every day. Day is just part of my life. I integrated what we do with the television shows. You know the the impact that it it a try to kind of quickly for you until the time. I was thirty five years old. You know i was a person. It was not an atheist store. Nick knight that nasdaq. I probably would have favored more upper eighty s. And i don't believe anybody that spends any amount of time in the outdoors anywhere can be an atheist. I think that's an impossibility. But i had no really. I was obsessed. And i guess that's the only word i could use obsessed with fisher twenty four seven. That was all that and you know. It gets all in our businesses. Were building at that point in time and At thirty five started giving turkey in my heart to Right to spirit a guy who was just tugging in my heart. I met people that that Turned her life over to the lord. Lord that were hard party hard-drinking people that i knew a hard partier. You know when they were like a different person you night and day and he started to talk to me about about jesus guy stuff i never heard of before the enemy sound comes with a lot of people you gotta understand nothing really new number and then i started the search knowing there's life got you got your busse heart who's much of his life in in one day turned us away lord has given us percents and i says well i i can't do it myself i need help i need your direction. I'm just saying guidance. Any made a confession of faith. Like they're nice and his life and then for about two years you know i wandered around back. Studied the word guide. The bible began challenged thing to me to get through a through know little things like could this really be real. You know like so many people. It's this bible. Could this stuff really. But this this thing is is there a guide the foundation guiding coke. Jesus was the foundation. Is this thing that he really is is. He says he is to be comfortable recently. Said he did from beginning to end. Yeah you know. And i started looking at this stuff. You know one day it got out of my head arc. It was never less years. All i can say is if you truly search is real. He's there you care some words to be. It's a real experience. You know the the point he's got to get out of your head in it. You have become a part of my everyday life. I'm not ashamed for the dash. That's it openly. That's who lamb. And i can only share the experience that i hear. And how would i life. My family My outlook on business. Now look on life right back by relationship with my wife and the older. I get a clearer easier. It is for me out to be more appreciative of of my lord grayson so al. I've got a question. It's a immuno high positive this way in a as starting my own business in the outdoor industry and then walking in faith in how how has that affected you know business decisions and just in a living in the limelight and and outwardly expressing. Your faith is there. You know ever moments of doubt. I mean 'cause i in today's society and day and age is definitely not something that's widely accepted. Are you saying in here by some subject back. But what would you buy. S- i mean as far as just running a business and then walking in faith. I if you look at the marketing partners that i have every single one of a from boat motor rag reels lures lying a wreck. Chronics are the top right at the top of their field in their individual categories. Everyone of and we've been with them for many many many years. Some of them almost my entire career. And i've said in corporate boardrooms all over the country. Go going all over television space over television network and contract saying that we re mega conglomerate and never have. I had one of say anything about my confession of faith and that show it all. Most of them have said they appreciated it and go forward and one of the reasons for that is an and some of them are not people but they businesspeople and the bottom line. Is i self stuff for. That's what i still stuff on. I do my job or am i would absolutely. That's why they don't you know so it's it's a only one. Major major challenge would network. It was who was with a network and and jerry jones johnson. They want forgot about guy that that was the words that they came back came back and they said that it's interesting the way they did notification we played on this network for a number of years and this particular year correct when just the way it always hits in five weeks into the show and it was a wednesday afternoon when it got where got i got contacted by the president of networking. And he said it's gonna pull the show because you're religious stance on it. We don't believe it's we. We went network anymore. This was on a wednesday. We get i managed. They did this going to pull it if we did we. Did we read it. Every i reiterate that we think energy i get contract signed with a bunch of sponsors and i had to deliver the numbers in so we get at that show and euronet weekend in the entire re edited version. And we continue our attorneys. Said you know you've been with. They want to take the court. You can't beat it you got. You ran for five weeks already. You did this for years. They never get it. They can't do for this thing and and they talked iran in in my wife. Laura his wife's no we'll go to thorough. They don't want you. i don't i don't want to be there. they want. They want us to be pulled what they want. They wanted to be this what we did back to show to them. We make the changes in our last of the contract for the television season. We sent them with bill. They said the bill hearing on pitching to us and we sent them the bill. Bill them back or the editing changes. We have to make sent it back. I never heard from them. That i didn't pay for the network in europe. Charge them back for all of the pain and misery went back bent. So it's no legal. Nobody called us back. Matt a single thing the legal. Nobody their legal. Nobody never heard from him since well. I'm really glad that you guys you know you. Un ron have have always been good about you. Know talking to people about your faith and it's been a centerpiece of the show and one of the parts of the show. The actually look forward to a bunch is the very end when you go through whatever god lays on your heart and i really just want to say. Thank you for doing that because we need to be able to talk about these things and i. It seems like culture is trying to move in a direction where they don't want you to talk about stuff that might offend somebody. But it's like you know these are things that we should all be talking about. You know if that's part of your life that's an integral piece. You should be able to talk about it. And there's one one thought i have on that. Patrick is to speak to have speech to have thought. You risk being offensive. Right to someone. And i mean if we're just gonna walk around muzzled and mass and never have a conversation about anything i mean. I'm into big game hunting that that can be offensive. Catching fish can be offensive. So we have to push back. We have to go. They'll run over here if you don't get you know and i'm a big thing an immediate business all my life. I'm a big believer a freedom of expression freedom of speech. Even if i don't with it so am i even. If i don't agree with it you still have a right to share. I understand and i respect it. And i think that's something that people need to remember. Is that just because somebody says something. You don't like doesn't mean you have to agree with them. You can just choose not to listen to that person anymore. I mean there's there's stuff that's put out all all the time that i don't listen to and i don't want to be associated with because i don't agree with what their stance is and you know there's plenty of stuff that i do love to watch and listen to that. I do agree with people that disagree whether you should catch fish on spawning beds are not right in an argument about that or you can easily selena when you can easily get there. But but again. I i like i said i. I respect our our freedom speeches. An expression is an important thing. I've been in the media business my life all my life and in people have a right this year that i have i a right. The like to tune into a cheddar offer. Do whatever i want with it not read it. I can exercise my own decisions. I'm not gonna go in there in equality sponsors sponsor them. Because you're doing this dead. I never do. And i think that's something that needs to be heard and i'm glad that somebody i'm sure a few people here it on this podcast but what you said is very true. We don't need you know this. Cancel culture of of things that you know. Ripples need to be able to share and people need to be adults about it and mature enough to handle it and choose what they want to listen to what they don't. I mean that's it's it's really part of the backbone of what what our country was supposed to be about and Were anyway i do to change gears. Just a little A guy that's been really influential in my life on fishing is pat o'grady. I met pat. Oh man that's probably been twelve thirteen years ago. And he was getting his company started. And i jumped in and helped him out with. Pk lures and here. He had told stories about you coming out to wyoming and doing some fishing. I remember reading. In the law. ally wisdom books About seminole and a few things. So i just wondered if you could share a little bit about coming out to wyoming. Western space are so different than northern or ride scary. Yo it's a whole different world and you mentioned to you mentioned alluded earlier when they get used to is. Never any wind ever ending win in. I mean if you go if you're going to fish you better better get used to win. Better not bothering you. The rick the vote right the handle nbc and being a safe piece the piece of equipment. They handle wind in it. I don't know if you guys ever go through three straight days in a row word you calm day never. I don't think lever happen. I go to archery shoots. And i have people say well. I'm not shooting in the wind and they start playing. Oh the winds blow. And i said well you come to wyoming. If you don't shoot or hunt in the wind just don't go hunting joke. Defeat w. t where we go to the code is as an example. You look at the weather report the night before they they say the win the window. We from fifteen to twenty five. It means it's going to be forty plus asu. It'd be forty dollars. Plus that's what you're going to get the truth. Well you talk about seminar. That is one of the windiest places. I think in the lower forty eight. I mean the the wind speeds on that reservoir are ridiculous. But i'll tell you the fishing is phenomenal. How many winter they put around it. Yeah they put a lot of wind turbines that sucker for good reasons but those western reservoirs growth big fish. Hey we're trying to keep that a secret. Al off carp fish is amazing and even some very. I'm a small mountain. i love smart fishing. The small mouth world small mouth. Fishing is as popular as it's become the tournament organizations. That have the come up north and since two small fishing and a great lakes and now they're coming everywhere yet yet you know you get to experience it in tournaments Love it the small mouth. Fishery that exists. West of the mississippi river is still some of the most unexplored smart fishing in north america systems. I can't you're innocent. At west of the river or to western states many of those reservoirs got phenomenal phenomenal. Nominal bishop i. I liked to tell the story. I've told a couple of times there's a. there's a river in oregon. I won't give the name but an all out to you. We drift boat floated at one day. And i hooked sixty small mouth in a day and i got tired of jagan forum. So i put on a mouse pattern. I tied and i caught. You know half a dozen small. He's on a mouse pattern. Just throw it right against the bank and start stripping out and they'd at that river this drift boat only so motorboats in that that can be a lot of fun i mean those are their sparkling out there and some of the some of the bigger systems pick the missouri river as an example for four. You've got set at saf. You've gotta wacky a. These are massive bodies of water massive massive systems and their in in in in there. I mean the small muppet. Nobody hears coast that they won't see an angler in your role year for small. Nobody'll be their four. Pack four pack is one of the most remote fisheries. I've ever been to. And i'll tell you what they're there have got to be miles and miles of shoreline that never get fished and i mean there's massive massive in their own up in way up at that even at the dry air dry air too short that is about what forty i think. That's forty miles long. And then you've got that main arms like one hundred and sixty miles long. There's very few accesses. Oh yeah you know you're right. I remember we had a pw heat from the tournament. They're in what we we got the attention that anisimov parsons weighed in. It was kabaya. They rent way when came to brought the smart in with his bad fish. So we could wait and it was like a six three or six or this. Was that smaller. That miniature scale in your macro swarm are up in san francisco. I couldn't pull about about have to lead. Somebody's somebody structures. Just drive in his crazy ton of them in there. That's an incredible says. I said there there miles up. It is the most untouched massive untouched mama. Fishing attack. the guy goes through not to mention some of the. There's one night and forget. That warned that they bleed. I think they believe their next record. Birsh sure commander there. I can't remember to saturday with no gather some wells. Old anti yeah. There's some fantastic fisheries out here. And i know just in wyoming alone. I mean you've got a number of really good reservoirs for walleye and you know a couple for small mouth that are really significant and a whole bunch that are good for trout of various species. And of course he got flaming gorge with those humongous lake trout. And that's and that's an incredible fishery to we touched on earlier smarter and they've they've kinda taken a dive the they they think that the Burbot that made their way there. Somehow somebody moved burbot down there into that drainage from apparently around this area and They just haven't they haven't done as well they they were doing really well in the early two thousands. I used to go down there with my dad and we'd catch some up to four four and a half pounds and now it's pretty hard to find them. They're still there. They're just not in the quantity that they used to be environmentally. Then yep There's something to be said for that. You know when i grew up steelhead fishing. You'd spend a lot of hours and when you finally hook into one of those thirty forty inch fish. I mean they they take you for a ride for a while but you can fish for two three four days before you even catch one hook one hook up you go small fishing and have those fisher so dang aggressive are fun. It's fun so that's one of the beauty of them. Yeah there's a there's a little reservoir here in wyoming that kicks out you around five pound fish. Pretty regularly And i i went there with a buddy of mine one time and we are fishing. Top water thing between josh. And i we we both got probably fish apiece just fishing little poppers on the surface in it was just a lot of fun and then that thing that you talked about al that happens in wyoming happened in the wind blowing really really hard to get off their old of the gun the boat for your life. Get your your jacket on. Got what. I'll tell you that much we got wet but so what's what's next. What's in the future. What's what's you know. What do you plan on. what's coming up. What are we. Should we be watching for and getting a little long into or the age also slowing down. A little bit i mean jimmy wego muskie fishing me for four hours. I ain't gonna go in our barrett fats or two pound rubber. Big thing can happen. You're only as old as you act. Al see you know strongest kid. My body doesn't want my five. You don't want to receive that. There are things that are wearing down a little think. That's wisdom speaking to abandon. No too so. I i have to pick pick and choose a little bit a little bit more but i still loved the game. I mean know as long as i can contribute that this sport in a positive way. I'm gonna do it. i'm not gonna. i'm not going to quit. I'm not gonna retire up. Going to crack back. And i mean by cutting that i wanna do more fun fishing on the shows. Jimmy jeremy that the staff and other people we work with. I'd like to see troy get a little more involved with this stuff. These guys you pick up the ball and run every night for long enough to fund fish a little bit more by that go do some things and places a lot of bodies of water that i'd like to play around a little bit now for two hundred and a lot of people don't understand that you know when you're going fishing for the weekend without a camera crew that that can be quite pleasurable when you're going filming for an episode that can be you know when you gotta redo takes a redo when you just wanna go explore to make it happen you gotta make. It's working people don't they. They sit in their living rooms and watch that and go. Oh well they were just they. Turn the camera on and went and had a fun time. There's a lot of hours behind the scenes when the cameras work was in. And then there's a year no it's addressing a lot of times a lacking half and on hot fight fetched but then when you dress the show after that. That's when you get the underwater cameras stuff out to fit. That fit the scene where the fisher coming in in to get the right drum shots environment. Those those all add to the editing and make it a little more exciting the music tracks that that go with it. you know. Music is so subtle in you know a lot of shows don't use music because you have to pay Their cost us thirty thousand dollars a year to use a music so yeah bachelor of music track because their royalties and alma my companies right in this is our very first go. My dad and i went she putting this last fall. We hired a cameraman and we took him. And i'm learning very quickly of the shortcomings of we didn't get you know. Be roll. Shot here and this extra shot here and you know getting that underwater shot or that overhead shot that you need in. It's you know it's really hard now to recreate and get those extra shots that we need to produce the film that i wanna purdue so make a real exciting piece you back. That'd be rollers goals man just putting the actual the actual easiest park. It is actually catching deficient getting their artist on films that easy. Then you've everything else is putting it together. It's all better than that anything. Sweetening the more things you have to compliment. Show the better. It becomes the up on where we're struggling. We're stretching it as as as as we can stay but it's fun man fun. It is a lifestyle worth living. Believe me i if you if you could do it. And you find a way to get your niche in their buck doing it your sizzle lifestyle business for a lot of people if you if money is your motivation and you want to get rich. Don't come fishing industry and here's a lifestyle some of us. I mean you could make a good comfortable but if money is silicon valley and they live in that world out there if you want to be able to go out and enjoy the great outdoors and have a comfortable lifestyle. Fishing industry in hunting industry. Got a better choice. you will never regret. it couldn't couldn't goodness it better myself. I have one more question and this is a really important question.

And how do you like it. Prepared real simple for me. I had a free nights ago again. It's just brought up perch beer batter perch sounds pretty good to me.

God bless you and You know be safe on your travels this year and i look forward to watch and more of the winter media so i appreciate it very pretty opportunities guys everybody habitation. Thanks a lot. So i think we should keep rolling for a minute. We'll wrap this show up and do you have to tell a story about al. I'm really glad he came on the show. In my first and only time that i've al was i cast in twenty eleven and i was working on my laptop and i was up in the las vegas convention center and i was sitting on the side. Which is a huge building enormous. I'm sitting out and kind of of the way trying to find a quiet place. I get wifi and do some work for pat gradient. Pk lure so. I'm working on it. And i see this guy. Come out the come off the stairs. I see that it's outlander. And i'm like oh man that's that's all inter i wanna go say. Hi and say thank you. And so i get up and start to head that way and i kid you not. It was like a stampede. The ground shook. You know the sky got dark. There's all these people just came from every direction and kind of cut me off and you know it was like okay. you know. These guys are more important than me. These our sponsors. You know these are guys that have a vested interest in talking to al. And so i'm like i'll just wait here for a minute. I'm sure clear out. It didn't clear out. The mass massive people just got bigger and bigger and bigger and then that mass move down to where all the booths were. And i was like well. There goes my chance. Shake his hand and say thanks But w quicker next time patrick. Yes but now. He's got to spend an hour talking with him and he's he's a wonderful guy and he's made an impact on my life that you i can only just tell you guys that it meant a lot to me today to be able to talk to him when i was younger. My mom passed away. When i was fourteen and after my mom passed away one of my things that it was kind of an outlet for me was fishing just to get away clear my head get away from life and my dad. I remember one saturday. He took me down to cabela's in sidney nebraska which is about a hundred miles from cheyenne. So he went to sydney. Bought some fishing gear but we also went and we found that they had a rack of in fishman. Vhs tapes and books and so we picked up those things and brought it home. And i mean. I was in those things. Like you wouldn't believe you know on those rough winners of shan that i keep talking about you know with the wind. Cystic crappie fishing. That was there. And i don't mean the fish you know we we would watch those videos. And we'd get amped up for that next trip to the gorge to catch small mouth or that trip that we had that next year where. We just clobbered the ele- perch walleye at poison. So you know those kind of things really mean a lot to me and just al and just the way is just how he has so much. Fun has so much joy around fishing. It's just so inspiring to me and so having him on was a big deal. You know for me today so it was great but i learned that and positively right. Vate faith and fishing is what he said. But you if if you're not having fun in this industry and he really did hit the nail on the head. Yes it's it's nice to be able to get to a point. You could make a living at it. But if you wanna make money go to silicone valley go go go create the next app or whatever the next thing is you make money and live that lifestyle but you know he touched on it. He's been in the industry for longer than about anybody and he still working i. It's it's crazy. He's seventy six years old and he's still going and just definitely an inspiration to a lotta people and one of the things.

"All right. So i wanted to share with you something that my wife. Carrie ann i did the first At the beginning of the new year. And that's We sat down and we reviewed everything that both of us were subscribed to and we sorta did a purge and a respectful and together. We said you know what kind of content do we love. What do we want to learn This year what should we stop consuming. What should we start consuming and we did this very thoughtful very proactively over the course of about an hour and the high here for me is. I think it's important to be very very careful. Whose ideas that you let into your brain you know. We only have so much brain shelf space and we only have so much. Time to consume books podcasts Whatever the case you tubes whatever we like to consume and so being very thoughtful about what we put into our brain is actually a very important thing and i think there we put some shit in our head. That can hurt us pretty badly. You know if you're a longtime listener you know Have no love for the hustle stars. And i think they've done more damage to entrepreneurs and marketers than any recent group in history For a simple example you. I've heard hustle porn star. Say hustles the most important word the english language. Well i've also heard hustle porn star. Say no one ever worked himself to death well in japan they have a word for it. It's called karoshi and it translates into death by overwork. So nonstop hustling for twenty. Five years is probably not what you want to do. In addition even worse maybe is. You can hustle all you want but there's a difference between hard work and smart work hamsters hustle in their wheels to and they don't get anywhere. So what's your hustling about matters. And if you're a regular listener you know that i believe that Legends become known for a niche. That they own. So if you're hustling to design your own category that's one thing. If you're hustling trying to compete with an entrenched category king. You're gonna be in for a world of pain and yet millions and millions of business people still consume the stupidities of these hustle porn stars every day and the marketing and entrepreneur. World is stuffed with stupid ideas. Here's another example that drives me nuts minimum viable product. Why is this a good idea. Who the fuck said we. The first thing we deliver to the world should be something called a minimum viable product. It should be called a product. You fucking think is legendary and awesome and you wanna share with the whole world nother just dumb dumb dumb.

"San Diego chargers this is no. Moved away. We'll like. I'm facing a similar crisis because the Indians are probably gonNA change their name. The redskins are are the Washington football team? Is probably going to be the Cleveland spiders at some point, which was their original name from the eighteen hundreds interesting her ray. Co Eight League. Well, you'll have saying that one day. One day. We'll talk I'm curious about your mindset because I know it's like. Well, in your in your new book, twelve months to one million, I know that's one of the chapters. Dedicate is the mindset and it sounds like obviously starting up from scratch anywhere you you gotta have a good mindset. So you obviously have a great one. You're human though so you're again valleys in your ebbs and flows I'm imagining. But what are some principles that you can live by day to day week to week to keep your head on straight with that pack if I if I could just pass one on, it'd be the longer term. You can think the better decisions you'll make. because. There's so many of us are in this after like, what is the immediate result going to be? But the longer you can think the better your results will be even in the short term. Give one of my mentors last week and were about ready to get to launch the single the capital's incubator, which is where we're going to be investing in advising a group of brands that come follow our process. And the person said to me. You'RE GONNA WANNA do like a really big launch out of the gate name again. FIVE MILLION DOLLARS And they said, but you need to find a way to sell this in a way that gets better over time and doesn't require you to the exact same thing that you did this time again next. That completely may be changed the approach of okay. If I want to be selling this five years from now, ten years from now, how I need to sell this now, because one was stacking the deck for really big launch right now but no long-term momentum but another would require me to go really small right now. But played me a better position five to ten years from now. And so there was a little bit an ego pill that I needed to swallow in order to make the decision of how am I going to promote this in a way that will be growing five years from now. On. All my cards in here and then have nothing to be doing the exact same thing five years from now. So if you can think about five ten years from now and do those things now you will get even better results even in the short. So that's that's. The one thing that I wish I could pass on every entrepreneur. How do you A.? It's interesting. Said this. We interviewed Steven Kotler the other week. Flow resurgent totally butters long company name but he was he said something about how when you envision yourself years I think it's passed like two or three years he started disassociate with that being you. So you Kinda. You almost like the goals are someone else's goals the further out in the future that you set them. So it's sometimes harder for people to stay with their goals and actually pumped up. It's like weight loss you want WanNa. Go lose one hundred pounds or whatever. In the three year plan, are there any things? that. You would do to stay on course or motivates yourself for someone else for? Vision light that yes. So you brought up weight losses, the example So I I worry about one eighty right now at the end of a bulk I, WANNA come down about one sixty and I was telling somebody I realize now that I don't have to lose twenty pounds I have to maintain one sixty.
