Editing in Isolation
"Welcome back to another episode of this week in Photo I. Am your host Frederik van Johnson today. Lee Herbert is on the show. He's a final cut pro expert who has been using the absence like the early days of the software I think when it yet cert- up with a crank or something. Now Lee is the expert. He's talking all over the world these days. Virtually we're GONNA talk about how his business has changed as an editor that's Kinda stuck sheltering in place like the rest of us Lee Herbert Welcome showman how you doing. Much. I'm much like the rest of the will of surviving this year. So yeah, we we're getting. We're we're we're based in Melbourne. So we are now in I think we twelve or thirteen time has no relevance anymore of of lockdown here. So Yeah, it's It is what it is. It is what? gives us the the Reader's Digest. Story the first resume paragraph of WHO Lee Herbert is. Yeah, the first line, which ironically as an editor I, struggle to keep things brief when I'm talking. which. Because as an editor, obviously your main job is to make sure that you tell your story in the most short and succinct way. But when I'm telling marine. Story. But. So a little bit about me I have had many over the years but I worked in the apple wheels for ten years of a favorite Tom was that as a final per China. But at the same time, I also did a lot of theatre and TV and things like that and so I sort of ended up wanting to do a lot more production work. So I left Apple. Back in two thousand, thirteen I think two, thousand, thirty, two, thousand, fourteen, and started mining production company I. Still focused a favorite on training really enjoy the training side of things but yes oh, you know thankfully, we've been going from strength strength and so been doing. Mostly corporate videos for large and medium and sometimes small corporate clients my passion Israeli documentaries because I. Love. I love telling people stories in learning people's stories and Yes. BUYS. That's that's the the high level view of what I do and why do it? That's cool and you love this stuff I mean you you've been editing on I mean obviously as evidenced by posters on the wall behind you, you are a fan of apple products? And you have not working. We're apple a for a while since I've known you've been contracting on an offer. Those guys, right. Yeah it's. Yes on an. been doing doing stuff for them. Luckily I get to do stuff for up dump stuff cerny done stuff for a lot of stuff in the medical field. So we worked visor with books for GlaxoSmithKline. Quite a few local companies here as well. Obviously was the big stuff. But yes I've been doing a lot of corporate and I really. It's funny. The corporate side of things I think photography might get this quite a lot as well is that I get quite a lot of friends of mine who are in the field but they work more in in narrative do soap operas they do movies and things like that and they say to me Oh you know I'd hate to do corporate stuff because you sort of a confined and be. You know you might not have. A particularly exciting product to talk about and I was like, yeah. But that's like that's the really cool thing for me is I love the idea of having to look at a widget and go how can I make this widget coup? How can I find the story and helped tell the widget story so that you know the people can get it like I was just having a virtual meeting with a client earlier this week in you know she was saying that they want to build a relationship with the production company because I don't just want to talk about the speeds and feeds of what they sell they WanNa talk about the benefits they want to talk about you know. got these cool buttons but here's why does cool buttons are going to make your life better and here's why you should buy it. So I really like that aspect of. Doing corporate work yeah, yeah, this whole world though you know as you as you look at just sort of the shifting of where things are right now, you know like the title of this, the stream slash recording is editing an isolation and as you and I were talking about offline last week I think it was there has been some positive you know obviously. You know the whole thing is negative. There's no way to spin it as positive but there are some cracks in the clouds and that are revealing new revenue streams that you didn't have prior to the whole pandemic. He talked about that a little bit of how things have shifted from Lee. Herbert hopping on a plane first-class to go to a gig versus. Lebron up skype in firing of invoices. What does it look like? It's definitely Dif- Liam. been quite different from that. So I'll given. So obviously like I had when when everything sort of started going crazy I had at least five to ten jobs that were either put on hold canceled, and obviously I'm not going to get flourine outs to the USO Asia wherever it is GonNa fly me out to to shoot stuff for them but the interesting converse of that is. Interestingly enough events because my my company we do we do a few events. We got a couple of in the middle of the year and then a couple at the end of the year. But like regular ones, men bits and bobs coming but we didn't really do a lot of events and funnily enough a lot of the work that's coming from lately is from virtual conferences. So I've had quite a few corporate clients who they've got staff members who are presenting it at virtual conferences, and thankfully they have realized very quickly that just doing it on a Webcam is not a good look for the company. I think we've all kind of like one of my biggest concerns when when the whole lockdown thing started is if you watch the news just about everyone that they were interviewing on the news, which is in the terrible lighting situation with you know they they elect either under the nose looking straight up they nose as what will up somewhere and you got people in the background working with their underwear it was. Dogs and cats living together complete my him and I was looking at that going. Oh, my goodness I. Really Hope People don't get used to it and go. Okay. Well, this is just how you know. You're not going to have good lighting. You're not going to have good camera. You're not gonNa have good microphone and we just going to be eastern that's going to be fine. I was like I'm out of work. This is awful. But thankfully, what's happened is a lot of my clients have looked gaunt. Yeah. You know we could do better. So there's been a favorite of consulting but I've done. So locally here in Melbourne between lockdowns, I worked with quite a few clients who realize that they were going to be working from home lot. Warn I helped them get even if it was just bit a webcams or just. A little you know like, for example, a lot of them when they could get them in stock. This thing called the Algata cam link between you and me there's tons of these for twenty bucks on Amazon that you can get instead of big fancy expensive ones. which allow you to connect. Dias Laura Ramirez camera into your computer used as Webcam as I am with my ach three now.
Rebecca Hart: new solo mother, small business owner
"So I own a yarn store in cary North Carolina our Surrey's Lip I've owned the store for a little over eight years now, and I have a seven month old girl Miriam. Who is now sleeping in the store in the little makeshift bedroom for her? Yeah how does how does that work? So you just bring her in with you and you do have pretty normal stores now or how how does that work not quite and were playing around with the hours right now. But obviously because of Covid we're doing appointment only we're about to shift that, but typically I'm here. Five or six days a week. At, least like ten till three sometimes I do work after the. War It really depends on what's going on store and her schedule Times. She wakes up earlier or later. So, I do have a little bit of flexibility to cove it. I don't know if that's good or bad but. But yeah it's it's been. It's been interesting. So she just comes in naps there are hangs out with you while you're. Here early enough. So she can be down for her I. NAP. Anywhere between nine and ten, usually she goes down at and that's where I usually am able to get a good chunk of work done for a couple of hours whether have customers in or I'm doing work on my computer. So yes, she is fantastic a taking early nap and I really take advantage of that. Afterwards it's really hit or miss whether she's able to play in her little play yard independently, which is not for log or I throw or on my back, which is a new thing I've been doing and we're her or. I have in my lap and I try to take with her relapse. So tell us about warm and fuzzy yarn like why where did the idea for this business come to be and I assume that you must have been the crafty sister growing up if this? Maybe, take take our listeners through the journey of like how you made the choice with your career. Take really big and kind of risky stuff and like kind of with that thought process was like. And just kind of the bravery while I mean it's hard to to your own horn, but it was a very brave stop so. Tau Tell a little bit about that yet. So I had been working at a corporate job before for eight years, and now it's hard to believe that have actually been at the store now longer than the CIA which is amazing. But I was doing business eggs of doing. So a spreadsheet work during a computer all day long. Part of me liked what I was doing another part like hated just corporate of aspect of edge and I was just I felt like I hit a wall and just was brainstorming things to do and I kept coming back to yarn because that was always something like after work I remember driving to a yarn store in picking up yard and it was it was the highlight of my day and join know what exactly when it came into my head. I took a couple business trips down to Arlington, and nearby in Alexandria is a wonderful store. Named Fiber Space and they had just tons and tons of hand yard and each time I went. I, couple of hundred dollars on yard, which is pretty easy to do and I remember just feeling that that type of really was not available in the area or very, very limited. So I thought about that in at some point, I just. Wondered about how feasible it would be so I took a business class at night after work and handed amazing adviser helped me write a business plan feasibility studies in talked a lot. My friends were niggers and shares actually I was more of a crocheter when I started I got obsessed into knitting, which is more popular. Now, most of my customers and little by little, it somehow didn't seem impossible I needed to get my elsie license I needed to get. The finest space in have fire check, and it was just one thing after another and about a year after I started researching was opening my doors. and. So you sell. Tell us mean for those of us who are not yarn connoisseurs the hand I'd yarn is like the high end of the market right for people who are very particular about their sort of knitting. Yeah I mean there's hand died and there's also just a small scale production so. Pretty much all of my suppliers they're either one or two percents show or it's one of my brands that I love everything is sourced in a us from the actual wool the sheep event, it's died and a spun everything is done in the Uso just a lot of very very small-scale partners and it just makes it special. That's kind of exciting that the sheep are American citizens to.
Xbox Series X Hands-On Preview Round-Up
"Xbox series x hands on previews are up as of this morning. As you all know xbox, they stand out a bunch of xbox series exodus to media professionals They've gotten their hands on they've been playing over the weekend in the last week and they're previews are finally available. So I've assembled basically the avengers of video games writers for this guy got folks from. got. Folks from Gamespot from venture be and I'm going to go through some of the right people have to say some of the things you had to say about xbox series I'm going to start off with Ryan McCaffrey at is and who writes this First, a word on the console itself it is hefty but in a good way when you hold, it feels like premium five, hundred dollar thing for whatever. That's worth when you turn it on the box, the same startup chime the xbox one family of consoles do in a I'm a bit disappointed in that. Honestly I. Get the consistency. It's a sound though it is a nice sound but you want that new you know. You want the news I Will Ryan McCaffrey saying here I get the consistency but I liked new sound while I'm speaking subjectively I think the series x also looks very nice in its article orientation. It looks bold in assertive indoor entertainment centre with the concave green-tinted vent perforations on the top adding a really nice visual appeal. I can't say the same when it's laying on its side, it looks more like a fireplace log. More importantly, this thing is quiet it's almost inaudible when it when it's idol and read debt-reduction to, for instance, is still pretty quiet much more. So than the xbox one X, which gets noticeably louder under full load. Thank God targets me. So soaked that gets me so to especially because this last weekend I've been, I still Greg Miller playstation four pro from the office along with the TV office so I can get that. You Four K. Experience and that thing is loud dude everything sounds like a lawnmower I didn't realize that you my base ps four got loud I. Didn't know that ps four pros got that loud. It's Wild Man I. The thing that I'm most excited about with these new causes coming up is hoping that there's a chance that they're quieter and I love that at least so far it is a good thing to hear. In clear though with The p the PS four pro that he's using the studio he's using that one at the studio because he got loud and he switched it out for one that he had. Okay. So that one is louder than some PS force can be. Four on right now. Yeah. It's my. Rose K. to us oh, is running right now. I love you call your vacuum Uso, your Roomba. That's a really good name for it and actually while we're on this topic like how it looks with Ryan McAfee's right up here folks. No I'm roommates with Michael Higham from gamespot Michael Higham one of the folks who had an xbox series x so I can give the scoop that looks great like vertically it is hefty it does feel it is pretty heavy like it is like a hefty piece of technology mom but anytime I've gone into the living room that thing that has been virtually silent and like yeah, the thing looks like the top with the green accents there looks really nice. I can't imagine that thing on its side because like. Ryan McCaffrey references here. Right. Like on the side. It would look really awkward like that's kind of my take on it. I don't know why anyone would have to have that on the side of Saif Mike space right like I get. In a in a situation where it's like the only have so much room. Height for mine yeah. which is the thing that sucks but it's also this. Thing like I. I'm struggling to think about where I'm going to put mine because I also it's GonNa. Look ridiculous donal but article I just think it's going to stand out and just be weird. So we'll see. Yeah, I'm scared with both this in the PS five I how they look if for people who are GonNa get both because the PS five and all the different. Comparisons. And mockup scene of that thing seems huge. Like seems abnormally big. Like stylish and sleek, and like has a cool feature. Is thing going for it but it seems big and so like trying to figure out how that is going to fit in your entertainment center next to a series x right at least in the same entertainment centre as a series I think it's it's going to be a challenge for some people because those two things are very different designs, very different boxes. Good Luck on that folks,
Coronavirus cases rise as Europe begins to see second wave
"Europe's covid nineteen cases are spiking. Here's how four different countries are trying to stop a second wave by Melissa. A resurgence in covid nineteen cases as gripped countries across Europe leaving politicians grappling without a curb. The spread of the virus governments are now strengthening regulations around mask wearing limiting the number of people that can gather in public spaces and honing in on areas with particularly high numbers of cases. This week Europe experienced a record high number of new Corona virus cases reaching seventy one, thousand, three, hundred, sixty, five on September twenty first according to the European Center for Disease Prevention and control more than half of European countries have reported a greater than ten percent increase in the past two weeks. Hans clued the World Health Organization's Regional Director for Europe said at a briefing. Even countries that had largely avoided the first corona virus wave such as the Czech Republic are now seeing surges stricter regulations to try and curb the spread of the virus could remain in place for the entire winter in the United Kingdom, for example, where case rates are doubling by the week prime. Minister Boris Johnson announced new restrictions yesterday that could last six months warning that the country is at a perilous turning point. Many. Of the new restrictions however look different to those imposed at the beginning of the pandemic rather than implementing uniform nationwide regulations. Many countries are now opting for more localized approaches. Why are governments in Europe locking down by region. Countries are wary of nationwide lockdowns that would have crippling impacts on their economies. Local restrictions allow governments to curb the spread of the virus while keeping parts of the country and the economy open. But restrictions are also different this time because the nature of the pandemic itself has changed new infection clusters appear to be linked to younger people who are less likely to die of the virus. The result is that this latest surge of cases has so far been less deadly than the first back in March and less burdensome to healthcare services. Even if the number of cases are high, the impact in terms of hospitalization and deaths is very different compared to March says Dr Jacobo Mendiola Ross, the Director and coordinator of the committee responding to Corona Virus in Catalonia. Rather than calling for stay at home owners, many new restrictions, target bars, restaurants, or other public venues that young people may be more likely to frequent. But the new restrictions could change if older people began falling ill and greater numbers already, there has been a significant increase in the number of older people testing positive for the virus in France and Spain of the past two weeks leading to upticks in hospital admissions rising case numbers threatened to overrun hospitals and healthcare services if not managed carefully. We are not in the situation we were in March yet says, Dominic Costa Yulia, a member of the French Academy of Science and the Vice Dean of research for the Faculty of Medicine at the Sorbonne University. Here, how four European countries are responding to the recent surge of Corona? Virus. Spain. Spain has been facing a resurgence of covid nineteen cases since July and now has the highest infection rate in Europe. Over the past two weeks one, hundred, twenty, two, thousand, new covid nineteen cases have been reported with close to a third of cases occurring in Madrid the country's capital. The total number of confirmed cases now stands at more than six, hundred, forty, thousand and hospitals are reaching their maximum capacity. On, September Eighteenth eastbound de as a USO. The president of the Madrid region announced a partial lockdown of the thirty seven most affected parts of the region which came into effect on Monday the measures which affect close to eight hundred, fifty, thousand people many of whom live in the poorest parts of the city require individuals to provide justification for trips out of their neighborhoods and has limited the number of people allowed in restaurants or retail establishments. The News of the lockdown sparked protests in Madrid where hundreds gathered on. September twentieth the groups that organized. The protests said in a statement that the government has done little to protect vulnerable people in the city and have instead opted for stigmatisation exclusion and territorial discrimination. France. On September twelve French health authorities reported ten, thousand, five, hundred, sixty, one new cases the highest number since the pandemic began in March since then daily cases have risen to more than thirteen thousand, the cumulative number of covid nineteen cases is now at four, hundred, fifty, three, thousand, seven, hundred, sixty, three, and continues to rise. It has the second highest number of total cases in. Europe after Spain. The government has delegated the task of implementing new regulations to regional authorities. Currently, the outbreaks appeared to be occurring in certain locations and not in others and a nationwide lockdown would have unnecessary economic repercussions Prime Minister Jean Castex has said. In Paris, Marseille and Bordeaux. All major hot spots for the virus authorities have implemented local measures to curb the spread and Bordeaux and Marseille visits to care homes have been reduced. Dancing has been banned at bars, weddings, and local companies have been asked to make their employees work from home if possible in Marseille and Paris, the sale and consumption of alcohol on the streets after eight PM as been banned. Wearing a face mask and public is now mandatory across Paris and many of its surrounding areas riot police units, and gendarmes have been deployed to enforce these measures. However

Lexington, Prague and Life inside the US Open bubble
"Tennis is back and it is back courtesy of to tournaments in Lexington and Prague. which have taken place over the last week that meant that Katherine Wichita was presenting tennis on television once more Matt's round of applause for Katherine. How good was she? Splendid. You've made me do around of applause well, holding microphone in one hand is difficult but Katherine. Presenting, tabby look very, very easy as she does. Did you do it. Yeah I really did I mean total shock to the system I had to wear non elasticated wastes I had to. Get up before nine am and. Work. That's D Work I mean a lot of that work was watching tennis and talking about it, which is no hardship expertise violins out for me, but it did take. A couple of days of adjustment and I did I did parise my tally wardrobe and veer towards the items that did have elasticated waste say no longer in the suitcase, which now is buying up yet it's been the Kobe. Pack the. Case. To take to St Louis Park. Containing my my tally jvm. Isaac. is any impact through week Stockley Park is where the video assistant referee job isn't it for the football? Yes I've had a va or seminar at Stockley Park. I've you know from? The the BBC. SNOOKA, coverage is coming out of the an adjacent studio at the time. So I was I was mingling with Ken, Doherty and Stephen Hendry all week. So blockbuste-. TENNIS PUNDITS CATHERINE was presenting Amazon prime videos coverage of Lexington We will talk about that. We'll talk about Prague, we're GONNA be talking about the USO and people that are playing people that are not playing other pullouts this week Rossi GonNa talk to Dan Evans. The British number one on life in the bubble he arrived over the weekend. A chat with him last night. So we'll hear from him about what it's like over there. 'cause we can't go this year, which is going to be a bit weird but. At least it looks like it is going ahead from a sports playing tennis playing perspective. At least we'll be something for everybody to watch. But the the event itself in. Lexington am I right in thinking that that was Put. Together in about a month's yeah I believe four weeks. Was the time line. Say, John Saunders, the tournament director over there they had some from Octagon, the management company and they do or they haven't passed hosted a challenger event. So they do have some experience of hosting tournaments but it a very very. legit respect, low level and they they three together this this tool level event four weeks notice. which. ADDS the eyes of the tennis world's on it. The top seed Tennis Club which. Is positioned adjacent to retirement home and with a fairly main road running across the back of the center court. Along which there were. Removals, vans and cement mixes and pickup trucks. Interrupting, interrupting the days tennis frequently. And it was all delightfully quaint and so apt somehow because tennis is more humble. Now upon its return in tennis players are having to be more humble and so it felt kind of really perfect that status his return I know we had Palermo last week in. Pro Pro concurrently, which is a more established tour van but to meet just felt really perfect that it was as as humbling as it was a setting. And even more perfect. He had kind of tennis's biggest superstars at the moment Serena Williams, coca golf and Venus Williams who emerged as they. See Pistol once again,

A Unique Brand-Building Moment In Time For Aesop
"Of a confession to kick golf. I am a bit of a fan of the high quality sites, just kind of like the smell of feel just like it, but I do have a bit of trouble justifying the extra expense. This is buying the stock standard stuff as a result is another confession. I'm one of those people that needs the good stuff from the hotels. In my job I've been travelling quite often staying nice hotels, and if I've got nice quality soaps and Shampoos on the guy that nickname, just another contrition. But of course, the moment I'm not traveling my supplies dwindling, and so on the weekend my wife comes on with a special treat, which is an assault hand wash, and I'm a fan designed big fan now. The ICE help stores already a super cool great design. It's great quality product, but my wife was telling me what happened issues in the store. The really encouraging you to wash your hands a lot because of course with these USO. It's about washing your hands and keeping claim. And as a result of that, of course everytime she's washing hands. She's getting another smell hands from the great fragrance out of the soaps. And so then I stopped, think well. This is an opportunity. I think if you're a luxury soap brand, because if you think about it when you walk into these shopping malls a lot of times you've got to get. You got to sanitize your hands right there. Usually often spray you with that really antiseptic smelling sanitizer. And, it's just not that Nice. It doesn't smell that Nice, but you need to do that to get into the malls or to get into the shops. But if I was ice out, what I'd be doing is offering a bit of a membership cod, which gives you unlimited handwashing installed so I come into the shopping mall. I get that horrible antiseptic, smelling sanitizer my hands now I'm in the stole then I can go straight to the store and with a membership card, which I've paid fifty bucks, or whatever it is, I can come in and wash my hands with quality. Nice smelling. Nice and phony, eisold. And of course, what that does is a couple of things. It gets people into the store. It gets me trying your product. It creates a bit of a buzz and winced a great story, and the reality is on probably gonNA end up becoming a fan of your product, and ultimately of course buying more stuff, so I reckon if I was I saw I'd be launching the on the hand, wash, membership, Card or something, something along those lines, and could work for a number of different quality soap brains as well, and of course you could also maybe offer it for free to you know the security personnel. WILL THE CLEANING PERSONNEL? Irs Baked so I reckon Roy now at this time when we're all obsessed about washing hands. If I had a high quality product, I'd be realizing that this is a unique brand building. And I saw. If you're going to create one of those cogs for, USA Malaysia let me know because I want to buy one every time I walk into those shopping malls. Way Is an isotope store. I guarantee ongoing new store for my free hand wash. and a free smell, and by the way hats off to ice up. I think it's a great brand. Love the what I said of they store Michael. O'Keefe folks over there at. Thinking, doing a great job well already,
My favourite tennis match
"We'RE GOING TO BE KICKING OFF. A new series and looking at some of a favor owed time tennis. Matches will also be catchy on the tennis news as well a little bit catch on with the virtual Madrid Open. That's just happened Andy. Bari Packard a virtual school as well as the news. The tennis is actually starting up again in some parts of the world in Germany. But before we get into that Kim how you doing. How is how is lockdown? Treating much the same as last week H. O. By fairly fast actually despite the lack of store which is really weird. I think I've kind of just go used to it now but having said that I did cheat in worship Madrid. I didn't won't should awful. I have to say it was. Radi my cup of tea just kind of saying it on a playstation today. What is g thing? Yeah it was a bit of kind of a completely new scenario new situation and I think it's kind of recognizes that living in these times they can open up new opportunities and of course you know this is one of them in the tennis world and I thought it was kind of really interesting to say I think in terms of what I liked. I absolutely loved the place. Be BUYING INTO IT. And procreating like the war codes Up there that the herbs to the controller I really loved that I'd like pretending to warm up thumbs and I really liked the way that kind of the players go invested in it and we're kind of really enthusiastic about getting creative and and kind of showing it off on on social media See I think that was kind of one of the things I I really liked. I saw I think it was Belinda. Bench really went. Allow it like a tennis gear. As I said could walk up the stairs a yeah just thought it was great to see getting really enthusiastic about it. 'cause we've not seen them on a TV. We're not seeing the you know what she pilots. Whatever as fans over the last few months it's just almost kind of great great to see them again really. Yeah I thought that was. That was good like the best saying the players saying the engage with the wall. I thought bench probably owned that one. I just like the little bits in the corner. We can just see their faces as they're playing. You just want to see their homes in the pack right to see what what. They've gone like their bookshelves or like. I just find it really interesting is like through the Keyhole. But he the past and that is really hyping. The stands framed in the background. Well potentially coming up in this focus on his lovely shorts but no yeah I. I didn't really like actually watching this. Nsa Watch just liked having the players kind of interacting having a bit of a laugh so that was nice to see the thing. This format would. I didn't think I'd want to see this every week. I think it would get a bit repetitive. After a while but I think it was a good kind of one off thing and obviously Andy Murray one that we should give him credit for that because he's now won the tournament on three different surfaces. If you can cool the virtual sphere surface adolphus. The Andy has donated his prize. Money half is going to the NHS and half is Gordon to the players Relief Fund. So it's obviously for Good Kohl's and Kiki burdens won the women's event as well and I think she was actually due to defend. Muhtar to say she has succeeded into that are mixed in our love. I love that idea. She's she's the non virtual virtual back to back very innovative. Double D for a champion. But yeah I think yes kind of great to see I guess. Play his Getting involved I think one of the things that I think they could have done. Better way of is the had this common tree over the top of the of the players. Now I I was kind of the point where I think it's more insightful. And more interesting if you just let the play is very commentary because Y- They are tennis players that professionals at the end of the day you'll be ready. I think what bringing up level is kind of almost kind of getting them to kind of talk about the tactics or you know that sort of that sort of level that sort of layer that. Yeah well my sick on a Royal Corps And it's like if I was doing this show in real life. I would choose to go here because of X. Y. And Said Yeah. It could be more of an educational thing as well I think what I did. I cheat and they lost connection because I was watching on light-years addicts correct show. It was just having to could LE- sort of chats while they were waiting for everything to ten on again. Did you see the I think Diego Schwarzer was best. Play at Deborrah. The savvy FIDO's but due to a weak WIFI CONNECTION. Debry a sorry. Schwartzman had to concede walkway. So I mean I love that idea. The like I think that's going to be one of the VAD. The walkover reasons happens to the best of our good today that like even top tennis players have poor Wi fi and all safely on. La has had a bit of a Jake because he said that Rafa could play because he'd like injured his back reaching for his game controller. Which and everyone believes here. I think I mean I think we believed him as well. As we've always believed tweeted about be cowed they gig for Geria- saw and I thought this this off to the best of the fortunately that was not the case. Rafeh was able to play. But we'll just very gullible but yeah if they're going to do this again like I think it could cost you on. But just every now and again maybe they do in other Walden on like Wimbledon. I different surfaces. I assume this playstation game has all the different surfaces they do girl scout one. Couldn't they maybe federal workup? That yeah that I think it could work. I think it could coexist when the tools get back up and running. I wonder if it's a sort of you know in the in the grounds of the events and you have fans can go line up for like an autograph from players and I wonder whether you could be like. There's a stand somewhere grandson for example. Oh face off against some. I player playing tennis against them. Virtually Sake I could see that happening. I know there are a few comments. The game was almost up to like up to scratch And you know whether it's the improvements to be made with with the game and you know I think I think potentially peop- governing bodies like the ATP liked the W. H. E. A. Maybe they should be looking at partnering with Game's about to really kind of Mak- licensed game like fever. Because I think you know I think this is as you said. This is very new is almost kind of this was a test and you know. I think there is appetite for it but I think there's almost kind of a lot can be done on that so a product side of it. Yeah for sure. I'm sure that's an avenue. They could possibly see going for. It's an yeah I like the idea that you could maybe have a bit of a play on it while you are an event. Perhaps if during a rain delay or something and even on Joe we actually have some real tennis. That's happened this weekend in Germany. It's kind of the first actual players of setback on cool so they've done a little exhibition featuring Dustin Brown and seven other players including randomly the British benign. Yon Shouldn't ski. Who I think is based in Germany. Anyway so yeah. That's been happening this weekend. We'll see JEB. So you fall head of other countries. Getting back to normalcy. So they've been out to do this. Little event Neko blends at the Base Tennis Academy. It's GonNa oversee how necessary health and safety measures in place. So they've obviously not touching hands at the net. They're going to touch rockets instead. There's no ballboys fans line judges. They're obviously doing it. Very watered down version is not for any points or or anything. It's not count I guess. Prize money's involved. So it's I guess aimed at lower ranked players to to kind of keep them earning something during this time and I think it's only for players based within about ninety minutes of the event so it's overseas a very limited
Why Negative Prices Exist and What They Can Teach Us
"Last week? The price of the May twenty twenty West Texas intermediate crude oil futures contract known as WTI fell to as low as negative thirty seven dollars per contract that means the holder who was long oil was willing to pay to exit the contract. Cnbc markets reporter. Pippa Stevens wrote on Monday for the first time on record west Texas intermediate the US oil benchmark plunged below zero and into negative territory before Monday. Many thought this was impossible. Maybe just maybe it could drop to zero effectively erasing. All value but negative territory seemed unimaginable. Not least because it's hard even to wrap one's mind around it pay someone to take your oil in this episode. We're going to see why oil prices went negative. We'll also look at other examples of negative prices and why they exist and what we can learn from them. The WTI futures contract has a physical settlement which whoever holds the contract when it expires receives a barrel of oil the contract settles in Cushing Oklahoma. That's where that of oil is delivered if he owned the contract. That's where you're going to get your oil or at least arrange for somebody to store it for you. Us crude inventories are near an all time record high. In cushing Oklahoma. Seventy percent of the storage capacity was four as a mid April and a Reuters. Article suggested that most of the available space already leased out. There's nowhere to put that oil. That is being received as part of the future contract settlement. Now the May oil futures contract has since expired and now the June oil futures contract is the front month contract that will expire in the third week of May. Yesterday the June contract fell twenty five percent just under thirteen dollars. They United States oil. Etf USO fell fifteen percent. It has lost eighty three percent year to date leveraged exchange traded funds tied to oil have shut down. They lost all the money products by wisdom tree. Ubs and velocity shares which is owned by Janice. Jim Cramer said there are times in life where people know that there's an instrument that is faulty and they can shoot against that instrument and bury these people there is this financial problem people who are buying the USO that United States oil energy T.F. Bay our financial people. So if you're a real person or you're a large contractor a large player they can wipe out the USO in. I think that's been what's going on. It's not a conspiracy. It's a reality when you have an organization that can't take delivery. Well you should crushed that organization every time and that's what probably happened. Who are these people that are getting crushed that own USO? Well some of them are retail investors. But most are institutional investors John Highland. He's now retired but he was the former investment officer of the United States Commodity Fund which manages USO. He pointed out that eighty percent of USOC shares are held by non retail investors hedge funds include energy trading desk and other professional players the purpose of this ETF was to allow investors to get exposure to the front month contract of oil at the end of twenty nine thousand nine. It had one point. Two billion dollars under management and the vast majority of its investment at the end of December was in the February wti crude oil futures contract that expired in January every month this ETF would sell that contract right before it expired. And then by the next contract in order to make money it needed to sell that contract for a higher price than what it paid for it right now when you look at the price of West Texas intermediate crude futures contract or is a steep premium as you go further out
US Crude Oil Prices Go Negative As Demand Disappears
"Oil prices are in freefall lockdowns across the world have dealt a huge blow to demand the US benchmark for June delivery plunged forty three percent today down to eleven dollars and fifty seven cents a barrel. That's a twenty one year low and it comes just a day after some contracts fell below zero for the first time in History Brent crude the global benchmark followed suit Brench for June. Delivery dropped twenty four percent to nineteen dollars and thirty three cents a barrel joining me now to explain as Wall Street Journal Markets Reporter Amorth Ram Kumar. So amorth put this in context for us. What are the economic implications here? The energy sector crisis has massive implications for everyday Americans in the world economy just here in the US. The energy sector has become a huge industry. And it's very important geopolitically and it employs so many people so the prospect of bankruptcies and mergers and acquisitions for some of these beleaguered companies is really staggering. We're seeing the focus of even stock market investors kind of shift now from the corona virus temporarily at least to this existential threat facing a critical industry. People think that oil demand and fuelled demand will go back up once measures to stop the spread of the krona virus or with did but for now people can't consume fuel and that's really driving this chaos. People say it's really an oil crisis turned upside down. So many Americans remember previous oil price spikes causing inflation eroding consumer spending now gas prices are cheap but no one can take advantage of it and that could really fuel a lot of chaos in the energy sector and when you start talking about widespread bankruptcies and things like that. That has the possibility of Stan spreading into banks which have learned heavily to these companies in recent years. Are we seeing this begin to impact? Us oil production at this point. What's happening there? Many producers are trying to curtail production but the measures are to. It'll to wait in North America in the. Us and Canada. Many companies have been forced to shut in productive wells. So when you think about that. That's pretty staggering. These wells that function normally and at certain prices are economic. But now the numbers. Just don't make sense. So companies are being forced to shut in that production and so that's lowering supply. But it's already to wait. The world is simply out of storage in many cases for its excess oil and a price war between Saudi Arabia and Russia that was resolved recent. We really made this all worse so for a few weeks that we supply was increasing as demand was crumbling. And that's made it all just really chaotic. You also took a closer look at how. This is impacting retail investors. What did you find retail investors trying to take advantage of the crude price slump and bank on a rebound have piled into risky? Etf's like the US oil fund which trades under the ticker USO. Hundreds of millions of dollars have flowed into that fund in recent days. And that's very risky. Because is tied to some very complicated oil market structures that make its price go down. When their differences in futures contracts basically the fund is collapsing towards zero and people are trying to buy it counting on a rebound but because of how the fund is structured. That might never materialized and say that's causing huge losses for regular people who are buying funds that they really shouldn't be or they might out fully understand that's again making us all worse kind of the repercussions are really now going beyond just the energy industry and that's something people are very worried about.
Explorers & Contenders: Annette Kellerman
"Meet the one and only a net. Kellerman a net. Marie Sara Kellerman was born in eighteen. Eighty six in Merrillville Australia. A suburb of Sydney. Her father was an Australian violinist and her mother was a French pianist and music teacher. As a child Annette's legs weren't strong enough to support her so she wore metal braces as a form of physical therapy and conditioning. And that's parents took her to a local pool. She later described that experience. Saying only a cripple could understand the intense joy I experienced after I learned. I go swimming anywhere anytime. The swimming really did help. Strengthen a nets legs. She was a natural in the water and she had a flair for the dramatic throughout her life and that would combine her sport with feeder to entertain the public by the time. She was around fifteen years old. She was winning races in setting speed records. She was also performing diving exhibitions and swimming in twice. Daily shows with fish at an aquarium her skill and ability to entertain set a net part and she further made a name for herself as a fashion icon at that point in time. Victorian societal norms were strict. When it came to swimming tire women were supposed to Don pantaloons and a loose dress so as not to show their figures a net found that overly burdensome and created a new kind of beating costume hers left her arms exposed and was very tight warlike one piece bathing suits today if they extended down as shorts or pants and that was actually arrested for indecency while swimming on each during a Uso trip to Massachusetts in one thousand nine hundred seven volynets spent much of her life making varied contributions to fashion entertainment and society at large. These achievements stemmed from her incredible talent at her sport among other feats and that set the world record for the Fastest Mile. Swam and help the swim records for a number of major rivers around the world after moving from Australia to England. She swam a daily circuit from town to town along the coast in preparation for an attempt to swim across the English Channel. She eventually did try and fail to swim across the body of water though she made it three quarters of the way despite that failure a net kept on swimming and winning races. She swam in a seven mile race through Paris in front of five hundred thousand spectators and tied with another woman to sixteen men after. You're up a net headed across the Atlantic to the US stateside annette focused more on the performance part of rear. She wowed audiences by stunt swimming and high diving. She also allowed many with physical appearance. A Harvard professor deemed a Net. The perfect woman because her measurements were so similar to those of the Venus Diallo. Naturally this proclamation helped draw in even larger crowds. Those who couldn't make it to a live show. We're in luck. A net took her talents to Hollywood at the height of the silent movie era. She appeared in multiple films though most are now considered lost. Because there's no known footage still in existence. Most of her movies had plots connected to water and she often played a mermaid notably and that was the first major actress to appear. Fully Nude onscreen annette continued swimming and performing until the nineteen forties. She credited the sport with changing her life in nineteen eighteen. She said but for swimming. I might have been hobbling about on crutches today instead of skating. Dancing and indulging in twenty five mile constitutional in addition to making my regular livelihood as a moving picture mermaid or flirting with toto. The funny fish through the walls of the glass tank at the New York hippodrome later in life a net became an author speaker and owned a health food store in Long Beach California. She continued to swim till nearly the end of her life. In nineteen seventy a net and her husband who had been her manager moved back to Australia. A net died in nineteen seventy five. She was eighty nine years old. Annette Kellerman popularized her sport and buck norms for her gender paving the path for future women swimmers success. She was honored by the International Swimming Hall of fame and she has a star on the Hollywood walk of
Revisiting the Archive: Shirley Willer
"And at that time was considered criminal. Thanked I remember being picked up by the front of my shirt back and forth by a policeman because I was on the streets at eleven o'clock in a head on slacks women's slacks and sports shirt policemen policemen. I was walking down the street trying to find a gay bar that I'd heard of women on and women's slacks but obviously made us Taylor as possible trailer clothing. Means what Brooks present. Now that I'm not talking about a man I'm talking about a woman's I had massive muscles here Made rebuild the top here. They costs fortune. I think cost me all one hundred twenty dollars to have tailored the policemen say anything that would he was hitting you too and he called me. Names Dan Pervert you acquire Uso me and so forth and you couldn't call the police. Could you didn't call. The police was a policeman but in fact I finally did find the bar and I'm not sure but what might still be. There was a seven seas where this the first bar you went to. So you got you got slapped around the first time you're on your way salmon and we're doing bar stupid question here. Was that frightening and was frightened. I was angry. Why were you had no right to do that to me? And that's been my attitude on. I might have done right you. How did you find the bars? How did you know about this all started out as most people do thinking I was the only one then? I realized there had to be more out. There wouldn't be any kind of books and it wouldn't be any definition but of course I didn't know how to war ended always Cormon came back. These nurses Miller came back in the navy and the army and then of course when they were working in the hospital we met each other and most of them were pretty flaming Queens. When you say these guys were flaming. Can you describe for me? What what that means. They will call it being extremely swish. The mannerisms were very limp-wristed. Even at work they would emphasize terminent characteristics. Thank goodness city. Hospital was simply didn't seem to pay much attention to it. They did the right to do the job right. That's all that matters at that time. Big Events in Chicago with the Halloween balls era gun Huge ballrooms one on the north side. When southside every Halloween all bars were off and everybody went in cost and all of us would get Tuxedos and over all the women and dressing are bushiest silos and we all go to balls The air gun was on the north side of Chan. Southside these particular big events where again run by the Mafia and We'd hired them scenes. You see and get a police escort through the crowds in order to get inside and one year gay people one year that people could be gay and it was the only visible sign that they're literally were thousands and thousands of gay people in the city. Where was the first time you went to this? And the nineteen forties was short short. We have to gotTA service because I remember. They dressed me how address you enter. Tuxedo and tied my and put makeup on me. I never worn makeup in my life wore dresses. When did you become aware that there was any kind of organized? There wasn't much unorganized organized movement The Oni organized group that I could find out about was one which was more literary and this is already by nineteen fifty early nineteen fifties and ten so what happened during the during the nineteen four. Then it was pretty much on our own volition that we would so many young women that were being thrown out of their homes so we started our own little informal groups and we take in all the kids. I take it out in the street and we would he pushing them to stop trying to hide it. be themselves. I believe that you should stand up becomes dangerous for most people. It's always dangerous for anyone who doesn't have any money in the bank. We weren't many of them endangered. Losing their jobs depend on the job. They would take no majority of wouldn't take jobs where they were endangered. They would go for the Dirty jobs rough jobs running elevator. I remember one in particular very bright girl but the only governor she could get was running an elevator because she wouldn't wear threats so are we didn't call ourselves any particular group.
"A Medically Induced Economic Coma"
"So the Wyatt matters team like everyone else is home and it's hard things are scary. I don't know about you but I've been having endless video chats with my friends and family and aside from drinking wine while showing off completed puzzles or homemade bread. We're mostly talking about two topics health and the economy we bounce back and forth what starts as a question about how someone's feeling turns into an update about who lost their job. These conversations are happening everywhere. Nobody wants to get sick. Nobody wants to lose their job. And it can feel like it's one or the other as people deal with these worries. Some politicians and business leaders have called for a return to work in order to save the economy even at the expense of lives. It just keeps coming up and so we decided. Hey let's pick up the phone and ask two of our fellows to help us understand the problem. One an expert on health and the other an expert on the economy. Just a heads up that this episode is going to have a different style than our other shows. It's essentially two conversations without most of our usual music and narration and possess. Don't worry though we'll be back to our regular format and non corona virus programming for a season to premiere in two weeks. But for now I'm Gabrielle. Sierra and this is why it matters today saving the economy and saving lives. Do we have to choose okay? First Tomboy key senior fellow for Global Health at the council. He's getting a lot of these calls so hopefully he's not tired of answering Tom. Blakey how are you? I'm okay grappling with the shutdown. Like everyone else. Yeah what is your work from home situation? She asks while sitting in her closet so he answers while sitting in my in my bedroom where we have three small kids. So you know. That's a challenge and we live in the city of DC so there is no great backyard for them to run around in so they bounce around the house. More or less like excited molecules at this so we have officially made it to April. Felt like we would never get here. Longest MARCH ON RECORD. I believe is the expert opinion. Do you think April is going to be worse than March April in the United States will definitely be worse than March? That's because by and large it takes about three weeks for people to start showing clinical symptoms so starting to get physically ill from having contracted the virus. It spreads as everyone knows at this point exponentially with a lot of cases occurring among people who have unreported infections. So I wanna ask you about something that I keep seeing people arguing about on social media even though I'm trying to avoid some of this stuff pretty pretty hard but do you feel like we have to choose between saving the economy and saving lives. No I think saving lives or more specifically keeping people from getting infected is really the only way to save the economy. The reality of this is is that we are not going practically to be able to go back to work until we get this back under control so the best economic policy. We have is health policy. At this moment we can have a bad. Economic impact of this pandemic with good policies will still end up there or we could have a much worse. Economic impact of these with bad health policies plus all lives lost. And I choose the former. But I've heard people say that if we don't spend money saving the economy. Many more lives could be lost in the long run due to recession. So do recessions kill people? They do recessions. Do Kill people. There have been a number of studies that looked at the great recession. We saw health impacts deeply for men and racial and ethnic minorities and it ranged from a lot of our Diseases of despair that exists out there already in terms of suicide or alcohol or substance abuse traffic fatalities safe harm declining fertility. You name it. You see that in recessions and we just saw a dozen years ago so we're going to see that again but again. The option here is not preventing recession by allowing this virus. Free Rein to run rampant. It's we want this to be a shorter recession or we want this to be a deeper and longer recession so the idea is to focus sort of on the immediate and the short term and that will help naturally the long-term absolutely know China's starting head back to work South Korea which had its first case the same day the United States head. Its first case is back to work. You know we can do this. We got off to an awfully slow start but it can be done in the sooner we can do it. The better for us both from an economic and health perspective. So I've read that half. The national stockpile of ventilators has already been sent out. Which sounds really scary. So if we want to stimulate the economy and fight the pandemic at the same time. I don't really understand why we can't put more people to work making masks the protective gear the ventilator is the things we need so we can but we need to mandate this. They're going to be still supply chain issues about. Can we make all the components? Can we get all that but you know we can manage that? What is difficult to manage is to be doing this in April instead of doing it in January February. You've in early March. So what choices has the US made in situations like this in the past? Are there any past success stories? We can emulate USO in the past in World War Two and in the Korean War. We granted the executive branch broad authority to regulate industry so that we could ramp up supplies that are needed for the nation's offense. We are in that kind of moment now. The president is talking about doing that this week. On a limited basis. And that's great and I'm glad for it and we should but we are awfully late for this wave but here's one thing. I do emphasize unfortunately. Is that even when we get this under control? This isn't going away. This is just the first wave of this now. If we can manage to get ahead of it we can do what some other nations have done which is have good surveillance and testing and really minimize the effect of future waves. But until there's a vaccine are really effective therapeutic set can reduce people from getting sick from this. We're going to keep seeing waves at this point. There're more than a million cases globally. It's a virus said isn't going to go away. There's signs that it's going to go away with weather so ramping up production is good for those second ways. I'd just wish we had done it earlier. So is good for this wave two. So has the timeline on a vaccine. Become any clear so it's a year and a year and a half away. That's what we're looking at. The other thing to know about the vaccine is once we have it. We still have to make it in the kind of volumes that can address people's needs you know how do we do that? But even once back scene becomes available. We'll take a little time for everyone to get it so I shouldn't be pending all my hopes to that vaccine Not In the short term in the long term. I'm a believer in human innovation. What I do think you need for that to have. Its effect is realistic and honest. Assessment of the challenges we face in the urgency in addressing them. But when you have that I fundamentally believe in us to have that innovation to address that we just need to mobilize it sooner than we have been. What does the endgame of this pandemic look like to you? The medium-term and people should be honest about this. So I'm going to try to be in. This podcast is that you know even in countries that have done well with this. They're still seeing cases. They get cases from people returning from abroad with infections like sparks. You know you need to control before they set off at wildfire. That's going to be the reality for a year or two years with this virus that we will have that risk so it. This is not going to immediately go back to the way it was. That's the medium-term this the long term is there only really to either. We develop a vaccine or at least sixty percent of the population needs to become immune the challenge with the latter route. Is it will come at a great human cost so I would like to bet on the former.

5 Boys and a Baby on the Way With Ariel Tyson
"Thank you so much for being here aerial. I'm just so excited to talk to you about Motherhood in life. Yeah thank you so much We actually moved to Montana a little over six years ago. Now a were from the southeast part of the USO very different a lot warmer or sure a lot warmer. We came here with two kids. And I was Thirty weeks pregnant with my third and since then we are going on. I guess four Montana kids and they are all boys so far but we do not know what number six is and I am doing about twelve weeks. So that's been fine. We started home schooling while here Montana. That's a whole other thing that we have Taken on along with me working. I work from home and yeah love that this'll be my fourth home birth and My first two were hospital births in North Carolina and then all of the Montana babies will be home births. Yeah how fun so I would love to ask you since you have five boys. Did you ever feel like you had like a little grieving when you didn't have girl? Yeah for sure and that is a question. I actually get a lot from people on instagram. That are too ashamed to say it. Themselves rate So I'll get little messages like I know I shouldn't feel this way and I can't talk to my friends about it because they would tell me. Just get over it and be happy for healthy baby but there is that Desire for that relationship with a daughter. both my husband and I have that and so we just have that desire so any time that I don't have one of my I wonder if it'll even be possible for us So yeah I think I. I definitely talk a lot about that on my instagram because I feel for families that have all of the same gender that get the comments when they might already be grieving and so I think it's extra a painful situation so someone who has all girls that might be really desiring for a boy and someone who has always too so yeah I definitely feel that and I think it's something that we need to be aware of and that it's okay to have a little bit of grieving and to go through that so because it's not even a question that you love your babies like of course serving a love your baby. Of course you're going to be excited about that me like you know the ad like shun you because you weren't a girl it's of course you carried that baby you gave life. You would die for that unlike you love themselves but there is that you know. I have a friend who just found out. She's pregnant with her fourth son and they were. She carried this one different and she was just totally thought. It was going to be girl and they found out it was a boy and she's like same like I feel bad like obviously I know I'm GonNa love my kid but she's like I want to be done having kids if I know I'm just going to keep having boys but if there's a chance of having a girl I wanNA keep trying yes like. I don't know yeah. Yeah I think I get even more defensive of the baby I think even more so just because we get so many comments from strangers but I yeah I can. I can definitely see how people feel that way. There's so many people who have extreme her mom over and they don't know how to express it and then there's some of us who are just. Hey you know this is hard but we're GONNA get through it but yeah exactly like your friend. It's just that kind of moment of I wonder if we can even have another another gender or not. Yeah but yeah so far like we have not try. Try in quote tried for a girl. We've been we've for our first pregnancy not for any gender you know. Everyone's like oh you're going to try for Mike. Well I mean we have babies. And they're great but we don't try for specific gender but yeah it would be awesome here. I wonder how true like any of that is because I've also heard like there's certain things you can do but ultimately it's not really in your control unless you're doing right. I have found that you can pre select the gender and stuff like that right my husband as one of four boys and he has one sister so we totally expected that. Yeah it definitely comes from them. My aunt uncle five boys and two girls so you never know

Tom I in Manhattan's famed Cafe Society Downtown and then in Hollywood there she was discovered by an MGM talent scout who promptly signed her to a long term contract.

She was relegated to musical scenes that had no connection with the plot and consequently could easily be cut from reels earmarked for distribution in the south. She did over star in a couple of all black movies. Stormy weather in nineteen forty three and cabinet in the sky.

We're going to turn on the faucet and the flow for she podcasts live <hes>. I'm going to be there. I've inviting our thousand thousand plus members of podcast. How great is that for the podcast. Atlanta group the pot atlanta group because <hes> it's right around the corner from where they're at right yeah so many times every year here for all these conferences that we talked about.

Oh my gosh means more speakers more sessions and i think we can definitely do it yeah so i it's. It's going to be a great that what you see right now on. The website is just the minimum of what they're planning right now. I know other sponsor in fact. I've talked to some sponsors at podcasts movement. They were hoping that they could get in there. Still some slots is there available but it's it's going to be a tremendous show builds off the success of a podcast and of course podcast. The one of the founders of this chris christie. Yes is is helping jessica with she. Podcast live so sure this may sound a little incestuous all these event organizers want each other to succeed a hundred percent and they're helping each other <hes> yeah because <hes> katie katie chris's wife yeah so so they are related. The last name sounds familiar. Yeah that's just one of the keynote speakers yeah and you you hit on something that i've discovered early on in the podcasting space. The podcasting casting world is that i i think i don't know if you would subscribe to this but i found that that environment is different than a lot of other business industries that there's there's lot more collaboration <hes> and partnership and synergy. I mean you know in some cases. You are kind of competing for mind share and you know advertising dollars and so forth but it's not as cut throat right but not really here's the thing podcasting is growing five years ago. The domestic adspend and the podcasting space was less awesome. One hundred million. I think is about ninety million two thousand fourteen last year two thousand eighteen. It was over a quarter of a billion. It's been growing over fifty percent year over year. The last few years the truth is rich. The pie is growing larger than we can. All cut our piece yeah so the best way to serve as many people as possible is through collaboration collaboration oftentimes. You've probably heard this rich. I know i've said it many times. Podcasts atlanta is i don't do that but i know someone who does. Let me introduce you all right so we're all like focusing in our areas of expertise while helping others and and that's what i love about the podcast industry. It's been growing faster <music> than you'd really those of us that are serving the industry can keep up with and that's why so many more people come in. We've got more conferences. We have more podcast us. It's just it's growing and growing. We still have lots of room to grow. There's many ways to make money off a podcast as just one again. We looked last year. There was a a little over a quarter of a billion spent in domestic podcast advertising terrestrial radio rich. You probably know this i was i was in that space yeah. We we can tell we can tell this is chris. Casinos gives it away. Just a casa repeats. You know for those just tuning in sorry little. Let's start over again. That's a little inside baseball here but that's twelve billion a year so there's still lots of room for podcasting just in the u._s. and it's growing even faster outside the u._s. u._s._o. Yeah everyone works together to serve as many people as possible okay so <hes> in our final remaining minutes here. What's interesting again with the she podcast live event happening here is that the advertisers sponsors that they've lined up. I mean some of the well known ones obviously lipson <hes> bus out and so forth himalayas but have you heard of pot it. That's you know i have actually i know a brass right. I forget forget. The godfather part it is a is a new you company and we'll be launching soon. They're based here in atlanta and <hes> yeah. I've got something working with them on the side so it's nice to see that the they're exhibiting here. I think they're gonna do their launch at yet another podcasting conference not she podcast live. There's so much stuff going on. There's going to be a conference right before she podcast live up in the the the northeast region of <hes> of the united states but yeah potted <hes> they're producing service to help guests connect with host and of course i show people out to find the best shows and how lower the exactly right and how to deliver the best interview possible so it was just a natural collaboration and of course bbb the godfather atlanta they reached out to me. Don't upset the godfather <hes> okay so last topic <hes>. Let's let's talk about <hes> <hes> outlets of <hes> publication about the industry so let's hit it three real quick so these are services is that are some have been around for a while some renewed in the marketplace <hes> that are offering. You know what's what's happening. What's new in the podcast world so <hes> what do you know about these brands so oh pod news on it. Yeah i love these guys. They came out a couple of years ago. I probably the longest original standards. <hes> james kremlin probably pronouncing announcing his last name incorrectly forgive me. You're in new zealand. You're probably not james but <hes> it's an awesome newsletter. You can subscribe you get get the email every day around. I think it's around seven thirty because i'm usually walking my daughter to the bus. Stop all right. L. comes in and takes three minutes read serie but they really keep their pulse on the industry of podcasting and they do some investigative journalism. Yeah here's trust me people their scandals happening all the time i he goes in looks in and and really cut uncovers the truth of what's happened. We've put in a word can create some scandal or some purposes channel the bucket atlanta so pod news. That's news dot net podcast business journal <hes>. That's a really cool publication like that a lot yeah. I'm less familiar with that. Tell us is what you think of. I <hes> i think is the editor they were there in just as an attendee and promoting their <hes> their journal but <hes> they didn't necessarily have <hes> i see it an exhibitor booth there but they're one of the newer players not the newest but probably i'm thinking about a year give or take they launched and <hes> we were proud and honored to be a <hes> <unk> a press release on their platform for a new initiative that we will talk off air but or newly another podcast but it's called actually the <hes> podcast world a tour so <hes> we were pretty honored to be <hes> in that publication when they when we announced our tour and <hes> so that was featured but what i like about podcasts is a the daily <hes> edition comes out and kind of you know. What's the the movers the shakers what's happening. The new trends <hes> in podcasting. They have some editorial writers. There's and so forth some great content and it's fairly brief like you mentioned with pod <hes> news you can kind of get the gist of it and if you want to do a deeper dive you can certainly <hes> you know <hes> <hes> jump into that <hes> let's finish with the <hes> more recent entry into the space <hes> so the podcast movement guys have gotten into the space search of <hes> a publication which they've released now on a regular basis called <hes> pod pod mo m. o. v. yeah the the pod manav pod movement abbreviation yeah <hes> so have you subscribe to that or if you check that out yet or <hes> there early into the space they kind of just announce it gives me they just release it. I think like a week or so before the before their event <hes> yeah yeah they did. They did and honestly anyone the one who wants to be top of mind <hes> it's good to have a podcast but it's also good to get people's inbox in a way that people open it and read it and that's what's great about these these new these things yeah 'cause up something else. Podcast movement is they've got a brand new conference coming in l._a. Podcast mubin evolutions yeah. Are you going to that around. I i am not i am <hes>. There's not a lot about it on the website. Let's jared has shared some things with me about the direction they're going with it and that's going to be interesting to see how the plays out and <hes> so pretty much <hes> on that topic from there <hes> daily publication to their annual event to their new event.

"Why do we have the best intentions and then not for through on them. Essentially why we procrastinating this has come up for me taking taking over the last weeks at last couple of weeks so i thought it would be a good time to share my journey and the lessons i learnt throughout that this situation in both me procrastinate for a number of weeks on something that i could have done very simply. Let me explain. I save clients face to face at a pilates cheery in south melbourne and they're running a spring challenge because it's just gone on spring a few days who garden and they said to me. Would i like to put some of my brushes in sri bags that they were giving to the clients for all this brain challenge and i thought excellent that's great so they asked me two weeks ago about getting the purchase organized and i hadn't i needed needed to create them from scratch <hes> to make sure it was contextualized full days clients and i remember going onto mm to vistaprint and a few other websites and having a little bit of a look at some brushes and then all of a sudden thought to hunt boskin all set this aside and hopefully it magically against done now of course i left it and left it and then go to message sage two weeks later thing. Have you got the brushes ready. We wanna pack them tomorrow and straightaway of just thought all nor what have i done had two weeks to get this done. A could've easily had it sorted wakes and of left at right up until the last minute. They wanted the next morning <hes> on the wednesday. I take all day on a wednesday and in the evening as well so i had no time i'm on wednesday so i had to wake up thursday morning before work and jump onto a software program i'm cody campbell and create at my own version and then cooled off this works and they said that they would put them on the spot etc so eventually. I sorted allen's <hes> but i'm really wanted to bring this up on the point. Caution have talk about it is because there was so many months issues around that the issue wasn't you know leaving something until the last minute it was the mindset around it and and <hes> hopefully as things can help you out because i'm sure with all done this before left something until the last minute but does all ways a raisin and this is what i say to my clients and whenever i'm trying to help people understand others more effectively we all have a raise raise them behind why we do certain things and i spoke about this previous episode about understanding other people in insane other the people's point of view and the reason why we do things is because we have an underlying belief. Oh mindsets about that end. You may may not understand why doing things that they are and you're probably doing them as well. Sofa sofa made that was three lessons that stand out with this particular situation number one was recognizing when you self sabotage him and this was a classic example. I just let myself procrastinate because i was trying to hold myself back or hold myself small because i knew that if i potentially if i got the versions out to everyone than i would have you know more clients except trump fear i guess was <hes> coming up and that sort of maybe self sabotage so when you you think about if you'll procrastinating on a certain thing and you're not getting it done just have to think about is a fiat and are you trying to hold yourself back on purpose. So is there a little bit of self sabotage at carrying the next lesson island was take time is never the issue. It's the story telling yourself about time for me. I made up a whole story that hundred a time to get these brushes down. It's going to take too long. It's a lot of effort to do <hes> so i'll just leave it until i get time now. Now of course what happened was when i had to do it. I got it done. I woke up a full work. I had out work all sorted on a program within. I would say probably forty five minutes and then by the time i made the coles <hes> to say about getting them printed olaf. It took me about about an hour and then simply going to the store to get it printed. Was maybe another twenty minutes. So all of a sudden something that i conceived in my mind was going to take me a really long time and a lot of effort actually took me an hour and twenty minutes wish i could have easily found wake cigar and i definitely do have an hour and twenty minutes on certainly not that busy where i do not have the time time again it was. I just found it so fascinating. Now looking back on that situation was i. I couldn't believe how much i kept telling myself at the time time. I don't have time to do this. It's going to take too long. It's going to be too much effort and then yeah when to wake up and just get it. Donna just didn't i didn't have a story about that. I just have to get this done and it's amazing. When we over sudden do have that pressure that we can actually get it done so that was another. One of my lessons is learning that time is not the issue. It's the story worry with helen u._s._o. About how much time we have along with that story is all the mental drama that we have the balance that we realize afterwards that there is actually no drama. It's just open created a now hedge so question. I like to oss myself which i i should have asked myself at the time but i didn't now looking back. That would have been great. Question is what this look like. If it were easy so when i got us to do those brochures and realize i didn't have anything for that those specific clients. I should've asked myself self the question okay. I need to get this done. What would it look like if it were easy and then i could have said to myself okay of the program. I've got some artwork. <hes> i know what i want to say. Excellent august block an hour out in my calendar and play around with it too much because we is something like a creative thing like that you can get so busy procrastinating on all the busy stuff that doesn't actually get you anywhere so changing phones and pictures and all that sort of thing where we feel like what being productive but not really it's just a very <hes> tricky way for our brain's <unk> catches out on not <hes> so back to that question. What would it look away easy. If i have got myself into that and then i could've gone and created that on the program credit into a p._d._f. Gone and got it printed that would have removed all the mental drama in my ahead and also lead time issue so if you guys if you're having any situations like this which i know some of you will be is just simply getting rid of the drama in your head and getting rid of the time issue because you not. It's yes that that's not the issue at all and just asking yourself. Will what would this be locked away easy. You know we always try and make things a lot harder than what we actually are and then of course if they had what do we do put them in the two hot <unk> set it aside for later but in the meantime we stress about got it that whole time just like i was the two full weeks. I was thinking about every day. I just go get braces on owner. It's too hot <unk> tomorrow and so it's it's like i've been living not stress for two weeks. When if i had the way i wouldn't have had that problem so when you're in situations like that it's just recognizing. What story are you talking about yourself. Particularly about time f fits <hes> when it comes to getting things done and also a new belief that i have started to adopt which is so far in working really well is is on the kind of person he gets things done at the first opportunity imagine saying that to yourself on the kana pass in get things done at the first opportunity and this could be anything. Does anyone procrastinate on during the dishes the laundry three. I don't know what other chores are there. Where you procrastinate on matinee feature said to yourself well. I am the contests and get things things done at the first opportunity and then you just do it and remove the mental drama and then all of a sudden what stopped is you stressing about it afterwards that you haven't go down a new still need to get it done so i lent this <hes> from my previous coach sandler brown and it was certainly very helpful and i know you can feel myself procrastinating on things i more tiny things like just generally household stuff <hes> it works really well and old son to snap out of it and <hes> just get it done straightaway but of course something like these brushes it just brought up so many other underlying issues underlying beliefs beliefs which is why i wanted to chachi guys about it so that you could learn something from it through because out brain likes to convince us of some pretty pretty interesting things my brain in this situation definitely want to stay six and wanted to stay in my comfort soaring so do it kind of kept me from. I guess branching out because if i if i have created them when i set out was is going to wake subaru when i told myself i was going to so at that first opportunity and if i have all the evidence and what if it didn't pay off off what if it was a foul what if my effort was wasted and the some times tends to happen with offices that will worried about putting in the effort because we're worried that it might be wasted and so therefore if we leave things until the last last minute then we can kind of an excuse and a bit of an out that way it doesn't work out. We can say oh well. I mean it would've gone better if i had done it a few weeks ago and if i have more time but i just run out of time so i kind of had to do what i could does this sound familiar at all when you're back in high school studying for exams or doing an assignment. Did anyone leave. You've studying for exams until the last minute cramming as we like to collate now again if you don't do while on the that exam you've you've got it out and you've got a really good excuse because you said he self all will. I would have done better if i didn't have to cram but i had to cram because iran at a time because of course so many other things to do again. We know that that's just downwind being really sneaky out brain <hes> china anna lawless into a false sense of reality when really the reality is you do have the time you just making a drama out of it and therefore you're perceiving that you don't have enough time so again out. Brian likes to keep us nice and safe and and also out identified as safe as well so that was something that came up for me when i was really thinking about what happened is i've got this identity wendy that i've got potential and i've been told that ever since i was in high school without i've got potential so it's almost like for myself in situations holding back effort because if i put in the full effort and i don't succeed then all of a sudden. I don't have potential well well in my mind. I don't so i hold myself back a little bit than my identity of having potential can be true <hes> so so if this resonates with you if you feel you're a person that's gonna potential but never put dinner full effort you sorta. Hold yourself back back just very sneakily. Not you know not consciously and again it's to protect your identity and and so this is more about being <hes> just self aware that this is happening in this is what our brain is doing. Because of course you can overcome it and i know you're by <hes> talking about these lessons from why went in a situation that it can help other people because until you have to put itself out there. It's sometimes these issues. Don't really come up until you'll put in that situation so does have i think about <hes> what you'll identity is and how you're trying to protect it. The loss lesson that i learned and so the first one was about recognizing self sabotage second one was the fact that time is not really the issue. It's the story we're telling us what was about time and the third one was self. Trust now. This is a really interesting one <hes> because this is what i was talking about at the start of the episode when i said following through without plans so we create these plans and then all of a sudden something comes up with tied we don't have time whatever else ities and we dark forward through without penn plans now each time that happens we lose a little bit of trust without selves so you could imagine if you've got a friend and you organized to catch up with them and they keep canceling on you at the loss minute and this is maybe happened five times. Would you trust that.

Neither <hes> never if I ever use language as strong you will never see me need as follows I in this I fono nothing and I'm I'm be rich. I'm to the point now. People only hit me on D._M.. London's don't got my number Lawan and that that's a fact but <hes> I tell I say things. I'm I'm very vocal person. I express myself but I also let a lot of my actions. Do talking for me. Yeah like you do something on my <hes>. I'm observing uh-huh okay. I won't say nothing but non do some next year back to you or if you asked me to do something happens gonNA walk or not show up. This is a simple. It's like I do let a lot of my actions speak but I also have no problem with. I have a good balance day. I'm I'm one for telling somebody I-IN show for you. which is important? I am one for telling somebody you ain't when somebody tells you that they're not my friend because I I have no. That's not true people that say that my a friend. They don't have a legitimate reason as to why I'm not confronting exactly so they're cowards so with that balloon says closures no. That's that's coward is because if I've never done anything to you and you having we're supposed that'd be friends and I did something hurts your feelings then you need to come to me and tell me do not hold that shit in have a temper tantrum. That's not how it's GonNa work so this cowardly to me but if I really like I've told this girl that I want. I've known her since elementary school right since third grade. She did something to me. I explained to her washy did that in Washington Associates Lane right now and I idea I was like we not friends like that no more so with that being said I felt like you did this thing and and I didn't like it express that to you before you took it as a grain of fucking saw you an associate thanks Fran and I think that's okay because it prevents me from from getting hurt so so if I feel this way and I feel like you're doing something to me and if we can talk about it and gets conclusion on it great if you continue to shake your an associate thank you friend. There's many friends in general so I have a lot of friends I don't Oh I don't use that word like I say like Oh yeah like I may say loose every once in a while but like for me to Sam good friends with somebody's very rare when I mean have a lot of friends I have five friend sure five core friends yeah yeah see no now core puts yeah specificity of course the word friend for a lot of people do that person is my friend a lot and I blow none. I knew him from such as I give you when you asked me. I'll give you a specific where I noticed yeah. I do you use our friend loosely as not just admitted that I use it loosely sometimes but you use it for every is my friend from back home from from here. That's my friend from work like you say that lie do it's that words just funny to me. They it just a friend in general is funny to me because like clearly not everybody is your friend now but <hes> there's a lot of Loma folks I noticed that living associate lane and they know who they know but whole walk around her saying yeah. That's my associate is just a casual words. This is why love the black slain. This is why I love New York specifically. If I truly truly truly truly fuck with you but that's my son. That's my son stamp for yes engine. That's my son Son Guy Right there then. If there's a dude it's not really if do you don't likely fuck him like that like that's that's an associate. I really close to him so you just fucking. I'm really fucking like that. They'll be the female surgeon that our some some dues uses like I don't. I don't <hes> but that's the thing it's <hes> it's genderless I mean I wouldn't I wouldn't aggressively say home fuck you. That's that's all I've seen type of person. That's equivalent of that like fuck with something like that like but when a do when right when a do from New York here is that they're like Oh damn he really oh so he like. I'm like he and he not even friends. He in U._S._O._C. Like saying fuck. Would you like that meaning a you have something less. I'm listen when I saw if you approach me about somebody like that. It can be one of two things usually just means like all right. I'm not and I use them for certain things hourly fucking like that so he is associate okay so he just the person you know gear something like that then. If you come up to me and below you know such rolling slow for like I don't like him. I'll fuck bending fundamentally. I don't like that bigger. Why can't you say he not you know he I in New York Slang was built like that cannot speak like an adult yes I can now? I think we like Oh. You know. Those are dentistry fucking bitch but people from New York do it. That's why I said I love New York to. Everything's like time rebel. You still talk about uh-huh. Oh Fuck that I've heard you guys had that conversation but it sounds so fucking sarcastic that is like Oh. Do you like N._F._l.. Like okay are you fucking with him or are you guys not fucking with each other all like. Is it a year nate. It's like I have no like the because I don't use our friend so often. It's like if somebody asked me about something. I'm Italy not enough friends anymore. It's like we just don't speak. We just like I heard from ending like I don't know like Oh maybe because a lot of the friendships I've had in the past or like <hes> are people that have like brought into the the comfort of my home like if I bring you into my personal circle and introduce you to my family and stuff that like I value that friendship people that I'm associates. I really don't really you know unless I when I mean associates like in the sense that we see one another one. We're out your personalities but you know I still consider you a friend now. Bring you around because I respect you. We just don't talk frequently but a person that is he is my associates people down bring around my family like you can't meet you can't me my boyfriend.

They stopped talking together yeah. I don't go to everybody's events. I'll stop helping out a stop. 'cause I built a lot of ship for other people and it wasn't reciprocated so I like. I'm like I don't fuck you like McDonald's cool but we in cool I mean you just have to. I feel like any relationship that you have whether it'd be a friendship are actual relationship. Boundaries needs to be set. You need to know you need to now. What makes your spouse upset and your spouse needs to know what makes you upset? They need to know which are pet peeves are like you don't like the fact that I cut you off. You don't like the fact that you can't get your point out. Those are things that go yeah <hes> over time but over time since we've been together almost two years I've Kinda got into guiding the gist of you know okay. Maybe I shouldn't cut him off his point and maybe you shouldn't yeah you've you've brought down your voice. When we're talking especially public show I'm just allowed person and public you allow you found a way to adjust yourself so as time goes on when you guys grow? You'll you'll learn how to edge.
