Fresh update on "walker" discussed on NPR's Story of the Day
"The killing of a black man by police a week ago during an attempted traffic stop in Akron, Ohio has led to renewed protests over the weekend. They're in response to body camera footage released by police. Matt Richmond with idea stream public media is covering the story for us. He's in Cleveland. Now before we begin, we should warn you footage is disturbing and we're going to be discussing details of it. Matt, this shooting happened one week ago today, walk us through what happened. So first, 60 is the number of gunshot wounds that were found on the body of Jalen walker. That's according to the initial count from the medical examiner. He was killed by police after he fled in his car when officers were trying to make a stop for unspecified equipment violations and maybe a traffic violation. Eventually walker slowed down his vehicle and jumped out and ran, and after a couple of the aid officers who opened fire tried to use stun guns on him, they started shooting when they said or they reportedly said that they saw him make some action that was threatening. And it's not clear how many shots were fired, but officials say that the number that's out there right now about 90 is not far off. Now the body cam footage was released yesterday. What does it show? So the first thing that it showed is that as Jalen walker drove his car onto the freeway, there's what appears to be a muzzle flash from his car officer says that that was a gunshot. And that changed the nature of the pursuit. And then you also saw the officers as walker tried to run, tried to use the stun guns, and then there was just a crescendo of gunfire. And it's important to note that walker was unarmed at the time that he was shot, officers found an unloaded gun inside of his car. Now you've been reporting from Akron how people have been responding to the shooting. Walker's family and members of the local community are calling for accountability for police, but also for peace as daily demonstrations continue. The lead attorney for walker's family said the most troubling fact was the amount of firepower used, and the fact that you couldn't see what the threatening action was on the video that Lisa shared. Protests grew yesterday after they've been going on for several days. Yesterday's were organized by the local chapter of the NAACP. And the local activist group. And there were several hundred people who were downtown outside of city hall, and they have remained peaceful so far. Okay, now Matt, what happens now? The 8 officers who fired the shots are placed on paid administrative leave. Akron's police chief, Stephen millet, had this to say about what's expected, what sort of answers are now needed from the officers themselves. When they make that most critical decision to point their firearm at another human being and pull the trigger, they've got to be ready to explain why they did what they did. They need to be able to articulate what specific threats they were facing, and that goes for every round that goes down the barrel of their gun. So this will be the first test for some reforms that have been passed in acrid recently. Matt Richmond with idea stream public media math thanks a lot. Thank you.

How Does the Filibuster Work in the Senate?
"So I want to start with the filibuster. I have a general understanding of the filibuster, but can you explain to the audience exactly what the filibuster is in a nuance surrounding that? Sure. And my knowledge of this in my experience comes from I worked for 15 years in the U.S. Senate and that's where this issue is located. And it has to do with the feature of how the Senate considers legislation. The founders of our country designed the two houses of Congress to be different, the house has only short two year terms, the Senate has 6 year terms. And there's various differences. But they design them differently and to approach legislation differently because when they're each doing their own thing and then they have to agree on one piece of legislation for the whole country, it's more likely to be better legislation and it's more likely to be bipartisan. So in the Senate, they have a rule that requires before the Senate can vote on a bill, they have to vote to end debate on the bill.

I believe in broad daylight. Where's the protest? Where's the crying and screaming and burning down the community over the death of the innocent young woman? Who was pushing her baby in a stroller? Oh, yeah, Elliot don't matter. Oh, I forgot. It wasn't police officers. And he wasn't a thug. And she wasn't a thug. But this kid supposedly got pulled over at 1230 a.m..

Akron Police Officers Fatally Shoot Jayland Walker
"But let's start with this shooting that happened in Akron, Ohio, you guys probably haven't heard of it yet, but you will hear of it soon because it's involved in a black man and white police officers. And celebrities are coming out. And I call them celebrities. They really not worth a hill of beans. But for whatever reason they're considered to be celebrities because they push this agenda that America is a racist place and black people should be afraid of white people every day they wake up in the morning, especially white police officers. Young man, Jalen walker. Keep that name in your mind. Jaylen walker, the fake black man, Sean king, who he's a white man. He's not a black man. I don't know why black people are giving him any credence of credit and him talking on black issues is absolutely as anonymity when they bash every other white person, but they don't bash on king just 'cause he got an edge up in a taper fade. Don't make you a black man. Now, I want to reach you what he said, and then we're going to read the facts surrounding this case. I'm going to reach you what he said, read the facts. And I don't know how on God's green earth, Sean king has been sued. In some form of a class action lawsuit, because all he do is peddle lies to create controversy and hatred in our country against police, literally I could argue that Sean king is literally getting black men murdered almost every other weekend by police officers.

"Around this beautiful house. Soon noticed, as we were walking around, there were lots of hours. And so we got in the car to drive back to this field from langdon and suicide. I know Alan was not okay. I'm just, but I didn't know that he was no mythologist as well. Because he told they had written this book about hours. And then we sort of put two and two together. And realize that our Ghana was the Alan government. And he wasn't a normal father. In fact, he knows a very little amount, but. I don't think he did from that time on. We were good friends, because we just got on well together. And then from them, I obviously heard about Alan's books and we started reading them. And have never stopped since. Yeah, he's always very interesting about the forms of friendships. He doesn't tend to form franchises with other writers, but he put him in a particle physicist or an archeologist or a historian. He's very interesting. Should we have the first clip? Can we hear the first? We've got some clips to see now. I should just say from two sources. One is from the book itself some readings from the book by Robert Pao. The actor who was at Manchester grammar school with Alan and indeed matches the gram school is the book is dedicated to MGS. And also some clips of Alan speaking to Liz his daughter who's here this evening. Shall we have the first clip of a bit from the novel? Joe let go of the post. He flung himself against the sour into the coat onto the vial beneath. And the man opened his arms to let him in, but did not hold him. Joe roared. He yelled, he wretched. Then he pushed himself away and crawled to the opposite seal and sat. His wrists on his knees, shaking. His head drooped. It was a hurl of thrombo a winter, said the man. A lumpa hummock of night. Nothing more. Joe could not speak. But summer is nearly come. Joe lifted his head. Chaco. Treacle. Walker. Treacle walker, I have in this land. What sort of a name is that? I heal. He. Made better. All things save jealousy. Which none can. He opened his bag and took out a bone. It was a shin. Narrow, old, hollow, yellow, crazed with black lines, polished, and holes cut in, and has slit at one end. What's that? Said Joe. I made it from a man that sang. Can I ever see? Treacle walker passed the bone to Joe. He held it and felt it shape. What's it for? Jekyll walker took back the bone, put his mouth to the slit, his fingers on the holes, closed his eyes and played. The chimney filled with two. It was a tune with wings, trampling things, tightened strings, buggers and bogles and brags on their feet. The man in the oak, sickness and fever that set in long-lasting sleep the whole great world with the sweetness of sound, the bone did play. Joe sapp and did not speak. The chimney was silent. It is a way for him to sing now. Said treacle walker. Can I ever go? Treacle walker passed the bone across the fire basket. What must I do? Hold, and breathe. Joe put the bone to his lips. Like this. He blew. The notes came, pure. The call of a cuckoo. Across the valley, a cuckoo answered. Did you hear that? Cuckoo. Erica, let me throw this to you. Can you give us a sort of a pricy of the book? I mean, tell us, tell us what we're just we know there's a boy and we know there's a man. What else do we need to know? You don't want to know too much. I don't think it's true. If you haven't read it, there's a boy. There's a man, there's a correspondence between worlds. What I feel about Allen's work is that he shows us that the connection between this world and the other world is right in front of us. If we choose to look, if we choose to step into it. And the two worlds are like a palimpsest. Existing on top of one another. And it's the story of a boy discovering how he can exist inside time and outside of time and how the objects that are all around him connect him to magic. That's what I would say about this book. I have to say that's a pretty brilliant person. Sorry. That doesn't make you want to read the book. I think nothing will. I'm interested in the objects that sort of string through the book. I mean, we'll come on to we'll come on to the bodies a bit later on. But right from the beginning that there are objects. There's the bone of a sheep and treacle walker has a bag that was bob about the name treacle walker in the middle. All of these objects, as you could see that Alan was fingering various the Dober, which is a marble. These are real objects. As an archeologist, I mean, is that something that sort of you respond to? Absolutely. And that flute you've just heard about really exists. It dates to the Bronze Age and it is made of human bone. This is a piece of research that was done by colleagues of ours recently and it was found in a burial. And archeologists have spent a long time working out how to read time through the layers that build up with a cake and we go back through those lenses through time. But that's not how time comes at us. Time comes at us, it erupts out of those layers and objects come to us and touch us from different times. And so what I love about the objects in this book is that that's what they're doing. They come out of all sorts of different times. The child's time, time, long past, who knows time in the future. And they are the points of connection that create these moments of encounter, where time is loosened and you feel its presence with you. So the flute, the marble, the donkey stone, which for people who don't know what it is, it's a byproduct of the cement industry that kept housewives busy to polish their doorstep and show that they were good industrious women who looked after the threshold now in Alan's hands. Something completely other because of course his house is resonant with these objects that are hidden under the threshold the half and in the chimney that are about keeping your house safe from things that should not enter. And the care you show to the house is part of how you keep things out or let things in and show your care for a place. So the materials, the objects are about the things that one must do to care for the places that one lives in. And we are just that momentary inhabitants of them. There are other people who have come before and will come after..

And you know i had my last Kind of purchase of those things. And i just got incredibly frustrated and i started asking the question. Why hasn't this been solved for folks. And i remember speaking to an old retired consumer packaged goods executive. Ask him that same question and he said something. A bit facetiously. Ace attrition guliga photos of black men hundred hundred fifty years ago. None of them had razor on their faces. And i thought i was like Let me look into this. I remember going to flicker and entering generic search terms like black men and nineteen twenties harlem renaissance. I went through twelve hundred photos. I didn't not find one photo of elected about space and at that point i said wow. There's something going on here. Why is this the case. They all shaved their all cleanly even right but we can't use multi raises and they didn't exist back then. So what are they use. And that sent me down. This path. Really understanding You know developing away that everyone used to shave which is in our opinion. The best way to shake. Isn't it interesting like you're basically going back to the basics which is just a single rate. That's it simple as that And away i think about it right now is In twenty thirty years is gonna be a lot more curly-haired folks in this country. What are they going to be using. You are also the founder of code twenty forty which is a nonprofit. it's an organization that helps people of color get internships at silicon valley startups. And you work with laura Wiedeman powers who's the ceo. Tell me a little bit about that. So so i laura Was a classmate of mine and business school one of the most impressive folks that i know in co twenty forty man was really founded To ensure that more folks don't make the same mistake. I did realizing that. Silicon valley exists too late. I realized that. When i was twenty four had i realized the potential valley when i was fourteen. Sixteen eighteen Perhaps my career trajectory of be markedly different right now. Why is it called twenty forty. Who's in twenty forty. That's when the majority minority flip happens. Where folks that color start to become the majority of this country. I wanna talk about like what the current state of the world. Silicon valley world is So google has close to fifty thousand employees. One percent of the technology workers black same at facebook one percent and by the way right now blacks are thirteen to fifteen percent of. Why is this number so low. So there's i think there's a couple of ways to kind of unpack that question. I think i. They're still implicit bias in the interview process. You know our co- twenty forty fellows. We have a ninety plus percent fulltime off rate. These stellar engineers. And i remember like one of our first. Few summers nude have fellows go and interview for full-time positions and a lot of them weren't getting offer. Some a lot of the larger technology companies and we started to wonder why and we started to realize that a lot of those fellows were suffering in the interview process with the whiteboard interviews So you're asked Kind of engineering kind of problem or logic kind of question you have to go to the whiteboard in kinda right out your your thinking around how you answer it. None of these kids were exposed to that kind of interviewing co twenty forty. We try and think about things that can help. Kind of mitigate that implicit bias not only companies but also the help students get around that as well. I wanna talk about queens. Yeah let's do it do it. How did it influence you. What's special about queens. Yeah well. I think it's also important to really understand kind of where. I grew up in queens. So i was born in south jamaica queens Forty projects Six years old. Move the flushing queens. Latimer projects. Newest latimer So he helps Thomas edison film of the light bulb in one of the kind of earliest like black scientists really really stellar stellar stellar man So a lot of my upbringing was in the projects right. I think that's important context as well right. It taught me a lot about grit resilience and how important it was. Do good taught me the importance of loyalty courage. Right what are some you know all these big words but like bring it down from ten thousand feet. What life was like daily without with a mom. Who's working at time warner cable. I mean look. I mean i know what it's like to take a food stamp and buy your food store right. I know what it's like.

And they're you know they're reading my book which is so fun you know so yeah can't say enough good things about michael. Are there more stories to tell is with these myths and legends or his double walker a pretty much one show. Oh we could. We could keep going easily easily. There's always more to tell. I think it was. Neil gaiman who i who i adore. Yeah once said the only reason story has a happy ending as because it stops being told but we're dealing potentially with with ferries who have been around long before men and potentially long after man. Yeah there's a lot of stories to be told there so many myths that we reference in double walker that i that i desperately wanted to explore further So yeah. I don't know it would be neat to to revisit Some of these myths in in characters to build them out of it more. but for now. We're we're we hope that everyone feels like they had a full meal with double walker in that if that is the only version of this that you ever get. We're very comfortable. That at a friend suggests that we that we do gemma's version of to tell the same story but from her perspective it'd be it'd be really be something. Yeah i like when when people do that.

"All right as we continue with our friend herschel walker. Let's talk about herschel. Walker a potential united states. Senator told me that you're giving it serious consideration. Where are you in this process. And and what do you think will be the determining factor for you to get into this crazy. I i know you've been in the octagon so you know what a battle is and your warrior your whole career. What would it take for herschel walker to jump in that race. Well you know i. It just takes that my family you know. They're they're They're putting together as well. Because it's not just about me. And that's why i keep telling people people to style like tomorrow decide right here. That's the guy. I got decide at my own time because i said this is bigger than just plan football. This is bigger than plan Getting into the octagon. This is the united states senate seat that can change the world know it can change georgia. It can change a lot of things so it's not something i got. I need to take lightly. I need to take it very very seriously. And that's what i've been doing and people may not understand that. But they don't understand herschel walker guys if you don't understand her to walk it has nothing you can do to me. They're got to deter me from my mission and my mission his and make the right decision for the state of georgia. Make the right decision for this. United states of america. Because i love this country. I love the state of georgia. I love this country stands for. we're country law and order wisconsin. They have borders. And i'm like that's what i that's what i know. And then you know. I love our military base every three weeks. I love the united states military right now. I think what we're doing. This country is not right to them. Let me ask you this. Because i think this is determinative in in so many different ways. If you if you've heard what stacey. Abrams and raphael warnock in jim. I'm sorry joe biden has said you know jim. Crow two point zero. Meanwhile the state of delaware has the most restrictive voting laws in the country compared to georgia. Which has some of the most accessible how they hurt that state with that narrative. Well they just continue to use that word jim crow. You know like i say. I'll say an element. You mentioned jim crow racism. Ah you're racist nobody can say anything. Let's get away from that. But i think people have to be on as i said. I love the lord. Jesus i love my god but you gotta speak the truth. The truth is we have a problem going on with something. That's going on country. Our leaders don't seem to want to respect what the constitution is united states that stands for and one of the things i was looking at. I say the ultimate office is you're supposed to defend the constitution. Foreign and domestic. That's the tate. Well i hear that. They want to change the constitution but the constitution is bigger than that. No part of whether you're republican or democrat should have the right to change the constitution. I wanted to explore this further with you. I like the idea that you're doing it your way and i know you that if you get in. I know you well enough and a long enough. That if you're in you're in to win that. I do know herschel walker. We love having you back. Your dear friend. Think the world you would love to see. Iran would support your candidacy in a heartbeat.

I'm just thrilled to be here with you. Talking to the whole hey house audience yeah. It's amazing like so. I'd love for you just to get started by kind of talent. Everyone your background because now you're kind of one of the most famous people on the internet you bell so many people change their lives and change their business in the great thing about you is. You're really about changing their lives. More than their business but helping with the business really helps with their life as well. That's true yes so it's been a crazy ride. It's hard to believe that. I even have a book out. It's just crazy. Is when i started at when i started as a stay at home dad. My wife supporting a family We had very very little money to go around. I had made any money or held a job or or done anything professionally for about five or six years at that point i had for when i first left. The corporate world ran away from the corporate world. I was not successful there when i left. I had my son was a year old and In in i was home. Take care of the baby and my wife is supporting a family and soon enough. We had our our daughter as well. So that's taken care of a couple of babies and at some point As we were really desperate we were desperate for money. And i know a lot of people watching us. You'll want to grow your message. Get your message out there. Get your book out there. Get your business built to make a big positive impact in the world And that's where. I'm at right now but back then. It was just about money.

I had no letters after my name wasn't a stockbroker wasn't a registered investment advisor commodity trading advisor. Or anything like that. The only thing i had was that studied the market quite a bit And so i started publishing about the a free newsletter about the stock market..
"walker" Discussed on Jay Bird Watching
"Like the ways world's mersal and stuff like that that's right in all seriousness. I it to me. I think walker should be the number one. Pick here of the litter I tend to disagree about paxton. It's not that. I don't like them as a pitcher. It's just the injury worries me. A little bit oto as shown that he has that ability on depending on the price tag. I might be a little bit more confident with you. In terms of injury history with him Depending on how long he wants that contract for if he's looking for three in the blue jays are offering him to. I say me in the middle given to an option. Maybe a mutual option. Or we'll see what happens. But yeah i just think it. Stop pussyfooting around just walker and let's let's solidify this rotation because it's in desperate need of doing so is and you know. Let another thought. I had when they got matt's is if anything that is the opposite of that instability rotation where at signing taiwan walker or jacob Add stability to your tation walker. Had his injury problems or is he is not ozias. Stayed healthy for the most part. And in the reason why i brought up wilner In his thoughts on that is because last year the blue days off offroad rizzi a pretty decent contract. Did i think it was just shy of fifty million so that interest has gone away there have been reports that they have been recently connected with jay. Goede So i i think they're still players there if they don't get it in my mind. I think that's where nigger walker but to your point out. You could be gone at time. There may be. There's a team that knows they're out on a busy or paxton is like okay. That walker stiller grabbed him before the blue jays. Do or anybody else. So it's gonna be interesting to see how they fill this out guys. It really is on any final thoughts on bauer or any of those days. We talked about gonna pull topic out of nowhere on you guys know. We have the agenda listening listening chatter going on twitter right now so that that biggest note i think they are gonna miss out on walker. They don't strike. I really think as far as that market that we were just talking about outside of our easy consistent die with the highest upside still..
"walker" Discussed on The Wedding Street Podcast
"It, you know, so yeah. Yep. Yep. Yeah sums it up perfectly in a forest. You mentioned that you did some weddings. Obviously. I'm a wedding photographer Money Trade and we called the wedding Street podcast. So yeah, tell me a little bit about your experience. I would say I have a lot of experience it was so I did do a few weddings. The first one was just a friend's wedding, but then I did a couple of others but to be honest, I mean no no offense for it wasn't for me. So again, I kind of like to be free completely and when you do a wedding, you're not you're you're doing what they want, you know, I think to an extent but then the more you do the more you find your own little strange thing and once you get known for your style too, then they're coming to you for that style. So who do I bet if you went back and say for example you come and help me do a wedding now you should log. In like a street photography mode probably you do things completely different now to initially cuz I started off more traditional in order mean and actually didn't know what street for. It was. So yeah, that was my hand at all. So never again, you know, you know, especially I've been asked a couple of times, you know as a second shooter. Yeah. Yeah. I might need as long as I you know, I it would be I noticed that with weddings that it is becoming more of a, you know, a market out there for the non-traditional you need some of those of course, then you know, there's some photographers that specialize in more of the candidates, you know moments where you're really dealing with unique scenes wage. Yeah. Yeah, that's ninety percent of the day for me is that yeah. I do enjoy some of the portraits, you know where you get creative and you can lead in lines and light and shadows and wage. No, but but that that that's literally 15 20 minutes over the day. Yeah, so just a little blend. Yeah. Yeah. So is there anything you'd like to ask myself for Rob? I don't know. I tell you exactly yeah, we love that question. So yeah Rob r u from Ireland. Is that right? Yeah. Yeah from the west coast of variety pack Heard It In The Voice after you could detect some well you should hear from the West Coast. I was at West Coast. Yeah. So the first time I ever tried I never traveled until after University home and I did hit up Ireland and I did hit the West I like the West a lot more than the Dublin. I was in Galway. Yes. I went to the Cliffs of Moher. Of course. It was like a you know a tourist trip, but I'm glad for it reminds me a little bit of where I'm from too. I'm from Oregon, which is very green to yeah, and you don't have a similar types of beaches, you know, you don't go there really to sunbathe their wage. Shouldn't I guess the rock we always said in like at home. If Ireland had the weather that you'd get in Spain or whatever. It would rival any of the best beaches telling everyone would be living there too. So I yeah, yeah. Yeah, let's move to Ireland where exactly are you from there? I'm from Wales. Okay. It's probably one of the most unknown countries around. I mean, I know I haven't been yeah, I'm mostly one of the small countries in the United Kingdom where the smallest only three million people so famous for things like rugby and and singing. Yeah, but yeah, I live in I actually live in England now, which is literally yeah. I'm I'm still only one hour away from from home. So it's the same but different. Yeah, do you know by chance? Charest magic? I'm not going to pronounce it in because I'm going to make a mess, right? Yeah. I don't think anyone tries you seen his card if after dark. Yeah, of course. Yeah, so that's that's not too far away from home. What's the capital city near you want me to get where you from? Its? That's what it's like after dark when the lights go out for all the vampires come out and things get a little bit crazier than yeah. I absolutely loved up. I love speaking of which have you got a favorite book? Yeah, I do have I have a lot of books. Unfortunately. I'm always gone. So they're just sitting in a chest the book that I probably looked at. The most is suffering of right just because there's so many good photos in there and you know, obviously but I think most people would notice that there's some inspiration of Alex Webb in my work. But yeah. Yeah, so I love his work, you know, the Americans Everyone likes that one. Yeah, Frank Frank. Yeah. I mean the people that influenced me the most I would say are people like Alex Webb. I do like Richard Tauber quite a bit. Kudelka have a few of his books home. Yeah, I do like Martin Peres book The the one at the beach. You know what I'm talking about. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. I have I have about six of his books off. I'm trying to think of the name Last Resort. Yeah, I like that but quite a bit, you know American color. Both of them constantly Narrows down there might Library keeps growing just having well I would say is having the time to read them. I have no excuse right now. Yeah exactly. I've got two publications of our shop magazines desk and I've only got home actually. What I should mention is is wunderland from from Jason Eskenazi. Oh, yeah. Yeah, what's great? Okay, I don't hydraulic. I mean it I think he's pointing it but it's sold out and yeah, it's amazing book and then he also other books that I have that I like go out to And then I do like Tony ray-jones. Yeah before I went I went to the Mountain Park foundation and they did a Tony regione. Yeah. Yeah amazing his work and what got me was how the hell do you just come across some of these things? You know, cuz some of them are in fact most remote places you can imagine. I mean these food is passed away so early and he still had so much great work so sad so danny-boy how long getting on with our list of questions that we wanted to ask. I'm good, dude. I'm good. If I think we've covered quite a lot. Yeah only I think I think that's been absolutely amazing. Yeah. I think the fact that we've been speaking for over an hour is testimony to how well the the interview way. It went went fast. And yeah, mine has been honestly it's been amazing listening to you cuz I was planning some trips before obviously the crazy very birth. Some I really like as I said, you're you're just an encyclopedia of I can't go there because Forrest give it a sixth I try to be honest. But yeah, it's but I try to find the positive side because again when you asked me if I favorite City, you know pretty much every city. I've been to I found things that I liked that make it unique. Yeah that's important life's not be reading more interesting than others, but I think most yeah naturally City. I've been to I'm glad I went to yeah, like I'm envious took such a great log. Thank you. Yeah, but ya know Rob, I'm more than happy for his mom happy. I'm good. I think we've covered a lot. Yeah did indeed. Yeah. Thank you, really a lot for your time. No, it's not easy to get up so early in the morning on a Saturday. You know what it's usually not hard for me, but this whole shutdown I'm not getting up as early as I usually do just because yeah, you know, there's people dead. Outside during the shutdown but yeah, they don't get out as early now because days and you know, my whole Sleeping schedules kind of out of whack though. Yeah. It's like when you're on holiday if you're used to getting up nice and early, but it slowly slips in our every two days. So yeah, absolutely great. Fantastic. Yeah. It's been an absolute pleasure for us. Thank you very much. Same thank you for choosing off if you've enjoyed the subscribe to the podcast..
"walker" Discussed on The Wedding Street Podcast
"No. No, I'm I'm like, I love to try the food while I'm exploring and stuff like that but myself and Dan refrain from that while we're in we're we done telling you all Delhi. Oh, yeah, well I've every time I've been I've gotten food poisoning in some sort. Sometimes it's been worse than others. But I've never gotten food poisoning in my life anywhere else even growing up but for whatever reason Choice when I'm in India, it's always been around a month. So it's been a while. But every time I get sick, you know, I did well, yeah, I spend too bad. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah, it's tough to just to get out there and shoot when you're when you have food poisoning cuz you have no energy. Have you got any funny stories from your travels? I'm sure I mean Millions off. Yeah now that I mean most people want to know like if anything bad happened because I am going to a lot of places. So when I when I really got focused on the project and knew what I wanted to do. I wanted to hit a variety of major cities and I wanted to hit all major regions including the ones that are not as visited partly because they're dangerous dead. So I I hit every major city like in Central America a lot in Africa. So a lot of places were before I go to a city I usually research it somewhat and I also checked the Magnum baptized. Okay, so I can kind of just mainly for inspiration but just to see it but you know some cities even though they're big important cities. They just don't have a lot of Photography and the photography they do have is centered around negativity like, you know political unrest or yeah or or you know disease and poverty. So that was something I wanted to photograph not negativity but make sure that I photograph those cities in the same way. I'm photographing other cities just like the daily life finding interest there, you know connection now, so when I go to these places because I'm trying to photograph from the same way. I had to take a lot of risks. So, you know things did happen. I was in Midian Columbia Pablo Escobar Go by trade it was it was amazing Bella there. I think it's called Community thirteen, but now you know, they've cleaned up the city a lot since Escobar but it's still of course has met his areas and the Favela because it's so Steep and and big they've put in escalators all the way down. There's like seven escalators down the hill so people can get to and from work so that became a tourist attraction cuz it's a unique thing and then there's also graffiti by the escalators, but if you go off, you know and and doing exploration, it's still a fabella and it's still controlled by gangs. So I was exploring I wanted to go to the top there was these four guys that look like they took a gang and they kind of tried to Corner me, but I was I was noticing it as it happened because I was at the top and I had noticed these guys earlier they were on a roof washing over and when I was up Thursday, I saw two of them come up the stairs and I thought that was weird and one was stayed and sat on the stair and the other guy went across the road and I could see that they kept looking at me. So then I acted like I didn't notice and I was going to walk to the next set of stairs. But when I got there there was one guy at the top of those stairs. So I I decided to go back because I I didn't really know where the orders went and I was just going to go down the stairs like nothing happened just walked by him and I thought if they were going to do anything, they'd probably do it somewhere on the stairs where there's no people around so I walked down stairs in the stairs along and I'm about halfway or not even halfway and I look back and they're both coming down two of them scale not cool. I'm walking down and then about three fourths of the way. I see the fourth guy and he starts to come up the stairs. And so I'm taking this is too obvious. So I knew there was a construction site close by so I I just planned on acting normal and tell them about two stairs from the next guy and then I'd hopped the railing and Run and Jump and get the construction site. So I was about two steps from them and I hopped the rail and as I have to reality try to grab me he got my arm, but I was already running so he couldn't get me home and so I got away and then I was as I was I was down at the construction site cuz I had to run downhill and I was as I was walking away, I looked back up and they were all staring at me from the roof wage. So I don't know exactly what their aim was. Maybe they were mad that I was in their territory taking pictures or they wanted to rob me who know wow. Wow, they want to stay on and off with that. No, I didn't. You know what? I I didn't know. I did say a whole lot to them. I think that's just them off, but I'm glad that you're way off. Ideal, yeah. Yeah, there's been quite a few things. I mean, I got to be honest. My most trouble has been with like I've gotten in trouble with security at a few place is just for taking photos. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. I was in Accra Ghana for a while, which I really liked a lot and I love the people there and it was great for photography too. But they have a lot of security guards there and I they always want to Power Trip it seems like I think because the locals don't take them serious because they're they're they're not police, you know, but I feel like it so they they like to try to put them a tourist just to see me walking around with taking photos like not at their what they're guarding but they all tell me you can't take phone off here, but not even 5% of the time when I just you know, I'm I'm somewhat friendly, but at the same time I'm pretty I'm confident. So I tell them that. Yeah, I can, you know dead. And usually they back off cuz my reaction isn't I think they expect me to be scared as a terrorist, but there was one time I was at a public Square. It's like the biggest main Square there. I think it's called star Square in in Accra and there was some event they're big events. And so I was taking some photos but they had some security guards there and wage and it's another long story. I won't get too into it, but that the guy was like come with me into their office and I said no way. I mean the last thing I want to do a job in a, you know, a private area where they probably just take my camera. So we got a little argument cuz he tried to take my camera after that and then he called over like four of the security guard one of them actually told him to leave me alone and let me go because I'm not doing anything wrong which made the other guy even more mad. And so they finally Four of them grabbed me like two on my shoulders two of my arms and then the fifth guy started yanking my camera, but I have a wrist strap,.
"walker" Discussed on The Wedding Street Podcast
"So on no aching Dom's never heard of him delayed onset muscle soreness Navigator off a Ka. Hey Google what is a training session for? You know, it is it's been up hazard have been a bit lapse in Scotland. I came back. I've trained three for some time. Five times a week, but the day it is gone a bit. So should we say? Yeah, but it's okay to do that around this time. Yeah. No, I agree hibernated. I need to store some fat for the windows. Not a bother these days not a bother and you can just lose it again after Christmas exactly. You've got time to get into your Speedos, but you smell it have to get a new new PIN. I think I was haunted by them one year we were in Italy we were restaurant and sat at this table and it had a seating area which was slightly raised and a guy walks off the beach and onto this slightly raised seating area and his crotch area shall we say was basically a face height and he white pair of budgies is on and I just turned my head to the left cheek was yeah, I think we'll stop there. So yeah, but you smokers are not my thing at all. You need some socks stuff down underneath I remember going to Belgium on a rugby tour and routines or ish. We went to the Aquapark obviously all excited. And yeah, we went to jump in like what time you come with shorts. Oh my so we had to purchase from the shop. Like you can imagine 25 Ribeyes all going into around Iraq operation of shall we bother nobody song this for the correct further crack? It has to be done. Yeah. So what what is the training session for you? Now it is how you doing weights. Are you doing cardio off a little bit of CrossFit a couple of times a week in the CrossFit child and I'm doing a bit in the garage. So today I was a bit of running a bit of skiing a bit of bike big some babies and then I was going wage three rounds and I gave up after 2 still not bad. You did all of that today you did a bit of running and yeah 800-meter run 25 calories in the ski r25 wage. Calories on the bike 25 calories on the boobies. I was going to see friends. I did two very good. Very good. It's something right. Yeah, definitely man. We were supposed to change the weekend, but I had a mega training session. Yeah, I did the Ironman Switzerland Spike route. It is an absolute killer how long it take 4 hours. I didn't do the full I did the well, I did one round of it full and a bit more because we've got to do two rooms at the circuit for the full for the full 180 kilometres. I did 120 kilometers or something like that. And that's without this room on the Run. That's what the swimmer in the room. Yeah. So that's only half of it done without swimming the Run. Yeah. I averaged out a just below 30 kilometers down like that's not even at all the beans all the time, you know? Yeah, but I reckon the best I could pull out of that course would be 32 33 kilometers an hour over that correct. What time is pretty pretty decent though? It's pretty decent. But yeah, I'm not too sure. I'm not going to win the Olympics as I always say no, I'm registered for it. But I'm seriously considering canceling a relay. Yeah. Yeah, don't do it will know. The reason I did is because I couldn't get a ticket for next year anywhere else apart from there. Right? But that was before I knew that money I earn monetarily was canceled. So all of my plans have changed now. Anyways next year. I'm doing two halves instead of one. Then I'm pushing the full 220 22 so long, you know what I mean? I might just cancel it and and get my money back. I know I won't be able to get all of my money back but definitely better better than a full loss during the center or you want me to pop in and smash it few months. That would be quite cool. Actually. It wouldn't be quite cool. It died after an hour. I think it's red. Good effort. Yeah. Yep. Yep. Yep. Yep. I've been playing cameras what you've been off. And a couple of small weddings again. I have another one next week. I did a bit of street photography in Bristol. I actually saw your new Street Landing Page Danny Boy, very very nice impressive stuff that was done out of boredom now, but a spare time obviously so something I was going to do for a while. But yeah, it's good. You're fairly on the ball with the marketing on it, you know, you call the right keywords and and all of the right places. I know it's not it's not your first rodeo. Nice. Yeah. So we going to mention as well the wedding Street podcast. Did indeed. Yeah. Yeah. I know. It's quite quite special that done Morris wedding photographer mentioned the wedding Street, And also we had to mention on feed posts the top fifteen wedding photography podcast ice. I didn't see anything on feed posts, but on feed spot off. Some things that I guess that's the same thing, but we were not even bottom. Anybody. We were number twelve or something like that. We made it we made it. Yeah as I saying I went down to Bristol I went to the Martin Parr Foundation. Oh, right. Okay, which is he basically has he's a famous street photographer anyway in the UK. So he he talks in his foundation every so often obviously with covideo is a bit of a social distance in it was also done on Zoom, but I was lucky enough to get a a ticket for Don mccullin off. Oh, very nice. Yeah was he doesn't like to be known as a war photographer cuz he was did street photography. He did. He does a lot of landscape photography as well wage. But yeah, I guess she is famous for the war photography. I guess. It's just because of the the doom and the Gloom side of it, you know, yes, so I'd say he's dead. Getting some pretty crazy and traumatizing things throughout his career to do his he was insane the stories just you've got to be wired up a certain way to actually, you know to deal with the things. He's actually seeing, you know, I bet I mean, well he was he was photographing wars in the sixties seventies eighties. Yeah, like the Vietnam War and and the troubles in Northern Ireland. I think he's very famous for yeah, quite a few all over really but yes, the things you've seen and documented and yeah, I think I've got a couple of his books, but I bought another one and he signed it for me are very nice. Very nice. Did he have any interesting stories or were they all like a bit thousand depressing? Well, they weren't they are obviously sad, but I guess taking photos of of these things to put it out there and show the world what actually is going on. Even if he was kind of saying he's kind of fail. He he sees it as a failure because he hasn't changed. Anything Wars are still going on. Yeah, which and then the flip side I guess the argument is but yeah, if you hadn't taken these images people would be super unaware of them if you know what I mean? Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. So yeah, it's it's a facade. But yeah, one of the stories he actually got shot in the cameras what instant gone on my gun film camera. He was basically working with one side of the army, of course. Yeah. Yeah, the commander told him not to go on this certain Expedition. He was just intrigued so he he went along even though the commander warned him don't go. So basically, I think they were use this kind of like Canon for that to fish out where the where the.
"walker" Discussed on KNBR The Sports Leader
"Walker well a little bit of a hundred he was going to go away to get your heads up away and you just pop it out over the art of playing when I hit you know you're in after the letter and I hated to dead center field goal blocked out pretty good but there was no way on god's green earth balls going out all yeah your your thought your thought at that point is what maybe double those so you're you're running hard yeah I'm definitely right in the heart I will alert backing down on anything and not you know who yeah it was kind of funny because you know I touched home plate and the ID card just floated around the bases that have some blatant no point in the family in the stands and then high five everybody a lot of stuff and I don't know this this call came over me when I sit on the bench for a minute and chili Davis who is you know one of my mentors was sitting right next to me and I'll look at Chile Argo he drove me next time up if you go to jail you that would make that bad I walked all played Bill Clinton has warmed up but I'm trying to halfway on the way to the ground it's funny what what did he end up doing with that patch and it's not a bad it was high and tight but it was it was definitely a a message that you would make the you know I remember watching that highlighted so many times I almost feel like when that when that first pitch curveball did come into it you probably as you said work expecting a curve ball you stepped out of the box and kinda had a sheepish look on your face and atop your head to the side what what were you thinking about in that moment believe it or not I was actually having a conversation with the capture I'm glad you picked up on both of them termination would be kept out of step out notes on a kind of had a big smile on my face in the picture looks up at me and he goes do you happen that might go wrong we curve balls you know and and I'll get back in there and look at that later what I'm gonna whacked the did that moment change anything for you right away because it was as if you I mean you would quickly proving yourself to the team and and to the world even though you had just arrived so for me personally it was it was the fact that you know I love this game so much and it's it's a very special game me but also at the same time the letter and at what level you're playing that you know when you step up in your face the big boys then you're able to succeed against the people that are on the next level it's a it's a definite sense of accomplishment then the you know for me personally I mean it it just it everything had come pretty quickly you know I mean you need I was in the Olympics you know literally less than a year earlier I was in college but and in the year earlier I was in A. ball in the year earlier now medically come in off no longer all right you guys made some strides that year as a team for short it kind of set up the following year in nineteen eighty seven which was a team that went to the postseason in your words what was the key to the shift of the organization at that time thank you you know al Rosen whose account manager at Roger Craig was our manager you know they were not happy with kind of the status quo this project has lost a hundred games in nineteen eighty five and it was it was not happy times in the bay area and and so Roger now gave of myself and Robbie Thompson was shot as rookies to to shore up the yeah right so do you feel which we did and you know the separatist good I've had a winning record nineteen eighty six and then in the nineteen eighty seven they want to build on that and they want to make the blouse and go from there and you know Alan and Roger both hold me that Hey look you need take fifteen and let's let's go and I'm like you got that I'm more I'm on board with this and so that's how we we went about it all that eighty seven season you started the all star game at first base what did that mean to you that was that was a pretty unbelievable moment my life you know I come from like I said college Margaret P. year of a one W. or not a broken elbow and you know so I had surgery in the offseason really did a lot of work during the off season to try to get back to being in I guess we'll see who will Clark was in the past and it it paid off I mean it really paid off his the yeah I had a great first half and then they will make the all star team and and for me personally that was like that of the crowning people that a local law hard work was worth it a month later August tenth nineteen eighty seven does that date ring a bell for you not really okay I remember listening to the game it with a a transistor radio under my pillow I used to do that at night when my parents I'd found out now they they knew I was awake but I thought that they thought I was asleep and I would listen to the ends of your games you guys are down five to four candy Maldonado leads off the bottom of the ninth with a solo yeah yeah you stride to the plate and on a two one patch there it goes what what how how do you put that night into words what were you what were you thinking and feeling you know we went into the game again faster than it was it was you know really really the center part of the thing because I mean we're trying to make a playoff push right there and we lose the by run that brought in a government gave me and the media at Lee candy model in the mall now goes to the three current account against they've made since although he pitches and won the hit the ball out of you know the ball park there in in candlestick tied the ball game off it and I'm like oh my goodness that was that was a dramatic if they come you know I'm the next guy up so you know all right I remember the first cases were a little off breaking balls in the third pitch which was about two feet off the plate look at all those clothes right by there Greg the R. and I know I can jump up and down the ballot box in you know you're not supposed to show up an umpire and he was looking at me to better get at auction so I knew that the next pitch was gonna be called distract the matter where it was thought are the super aggressive and the next which happen to be a fastball off not only what we can it was it was one of those and you hit it with a no doubter and now you know it one of going into the upper deck at candlestick pattern a white box the first time in my life and I think I was going to mad from the to call but it was the first time in my life I really the home run and a walk down the line about section and click on one and so I noticed that about that highlight it because that was not that was not your normal way to you know to look at all right yeah no I was I was I was not that guy you know Matt Williams and I both you know we were the guys that you know put our head down and and took off running and then we were trying not to you know show the other team and not just one of those things where I think part of that because love mad at the two oh call them you know because my hand into it now I gotta be like super aggressive could you got called back to just try all right there it is that's just a piece of the

"walker" Discussed on WTMJ 620
"Walker look the usual way to start the show is I come up with the topic I give you my reaction to call in and we react and and we we discuss it wanted to something a little bit differently today given the fact that this is a Saint Patrick's day like no other we're being told that gosh we have to change our lifestyle at least in the short run dramatically and my question is a simple one hello how are you doing I mean how how are you doing with all this let's start with Alitalia WTMJ good afternoon yeah hi I just called in I kind of just under one by a work search thing they shut the restaurant down the gold medal collect unemployment and then when they do file now if you're not union then you have to do a word search for five six times a week police believe this should be weighed them pearly and because they tell you to stay home with your family the governor was just on you know you want to stay home so but yet you got your work searching long find work before you get your next unemployment check I don't know if they overlook this or what but it just seems to me it needs to be brought up yeah and and and thanks to god I don't necessarily disagree have to think through that but yeah I mean typically you have to collect unemployment you have to be actively looking for work at this point in time for example if you're a waiter or your server in a restaurant in St the reason you're out of work right now is because all the restaurants are closed thank I think you make a valid point have to think it through but but yeah this particular matter for at least a short term issues I I I would agree if your industry is effectively being shut down and that's what we are doing when it comes to bars and restaurants I think you need to have a little bit of flexibility no disagreement there eight five five six one six one six one eight if he acted it mortgage talking text line how you doing Connie in portage county on WTMJ hello hello so I wash my hands all the time not quite a bit so I haven't really done anything different I went to portage to Walmart yesterday yeah I think they're out of paper and some people would but the parking lot was full tractor supply the parking lot was full it doesn't seem like anybody doing too much I'm going to place your order right now and but I listen to this morning I have never I've never had before and my daughter was with me and we were so impressed with that man you should be proud of what we've got now thank you and everything the last time he did not mention unemployment and I think you're right that should be covered yeah I mean I absolutely right it did see this with this reminds me and and I understand there are some of my Republican friends who are reluctant to get on board with it this belt whatever you wanna call it stimulus bailout emergency aid package that they have and I think there's times where I I understand for example the theory you know we we don't want government mandates on businesses and things like that that might stay forever but at the same time when you are faced with extraordinary circumstances for example back in two thousand eight when we had the the big you know the bank collapse well a lot of people were thrown out of work unemployment typically lasts six months back then right well there are a lot of states and the federal government it ordered it extended a lot of states okay we're we're not going to limit the six month with a limited to a year in some cases like eighteen months and I supported a lot of those initiatives because you were looking at extraordinary times this is an extraordinary situation and we need collectively to get people through it how are you handling this instructor Richard in Cedarburg which triggered the lead him J. Richard Richard there okay let's try a Pete Pete you're on WTMJ good afternoon hi there it's on the school bus driver in the Madison area typically work fifty to sixty hours a week and back went to zero real quick on Friday night my company told us we're going back in early April but I I just don't believe that because of the the gravity of the crisis so I don't fault them at all but it's very unknown so I'm I'm looking for some other options maybe driving for Amazon but not sure what to do right go ahead it's scary flick I have bills to pay like we all do but I recognize that you're bigger than me and a lot of us are in the situation so I applied for unemployment but I I'm assuming the unemployment office overwhelmed by their biggest day in history in applications so my other concern is that this morning I went to my church like I always do in the past you came in and that the government told us we cannot have a service and I'm concerned long term about our first amendment rights the right to public assembly and the rights privileges for shifting pilot yeah I think you know it and what what we're seeing hopefully a lot of this stuff ease is a short term thing in the state of of emergency and I guess I'm I'm thinking my guess is a lot of a lot of the restrictions we have are going to be reassessed within the next week or two for exactly that those purposes how can you order the church's closed down you know what is the long standing impact to the economy if you order restaurants essentially closed how many of those restaurants are we gonna lose all those things so I I'm I'm hoping this is a short term thing to try to you know get us over the immediate problem and thanks for calling and I am sympathetic by the way it you know to the school bus drivers I I got I got an email or phone call from somebody yesterday who was he was a school bus driver but he was he he drove for one of the bus companies you know like a wheel where they get you where you we take people at trips you know and of course that that entire market hit his dried up a little bit later on we're gonna talk about the airlines in the airline industry is just absolutely been devastated and it's not just the government travel ban stopping flights from Europe or things like that it's the fact that you know Americans are collectively we're cancelling flights right and left so you know you see the major airlines United and delta and southwest all cutting back flights and capacity I mean they're they're good essentially park three hundred four hundred of their planes and this what does this mean it means pilots get laid off it means that people you know working in the airlines end up getting laid off it has a huge impact on that industry plus then you've got all the impact on the travel industry I've been following stuff going on was Vegas you've got some of the major hotels that are being closed number one because of safety issues but number two because nobody's coming anymore let's talk to David in Waukesha David you're on WTMJ hi good afternoon just some background on how you are yeah I'm here hello go ahead okay regardless of background background background out of sixty something professional highly educated I've got assets in the stock market the good people who could be dramatically affected by this virus and I'm okay and I think the reason I am okay is because I'm a sixty something year old I've seen stuff I've been through stuff I understand that time happens and then things change so my recommendation for those who don't have the seasoning of years is can you ride it out and it'll all work out right yeah well I mean that that and that's in me thanks I mean that's that's kind of the attitude I I think you have to take which is you know don't panic and and life does in fact go on I mean that that's just kind of the reality I I was out and about today and I mean I I I went to to my bank to deposit some money so I went to the bank and I I ended up actually I even actually went into the bank because there's lots of people in the drive thru so was quicker to go in there the people at the bank I went to said no they don't have plans to close the lobby but there was this there was a separation it wasn't like there was a bunch of of people there there were a number of businesses that were operating we're watching my nephew today my wife is watching my nephew because my brother who's a lawyer downtown he had to go and he was he was working on I mean we're getting on with our lives I think the question is we just have to be we have to be smart about it which does not mean that it's it's not frustrating and it doesn't mean that in the short term that there's not going to be various issues okay let's go to some of the text lines because my question was how are you doing let's see don't panic Jeff this is great advice but will people heeded my whole people he did hi I mean I hope so Jeff I work as a cashier at a grocery store we are open for business what my concern is is how we are protected I'm hoping but I'm very concerned about my health and the health of my coworkers it was interesting when I was in the grocery store the other day I noticed that the cashiers they they all had those latex gloves on which I thought we was a good idea and maybe even after this coronavirus thing goes I think that's probably a good idea that that that just keep in mind we talk about restaurants if they stay open to one carry out orders that means they are open and workers cannot file for unemployment they won't need a full staff for that two cooks in a manager so they won't be working with those people can't collect on deployment or qualify for government help yeah my guess is in those cases the servers would be laid off Jeff this is market is head of the household trying to provide for my family that that's hard enough as it is now at the stress of this and it's a little hard to handle and no sports to take my mind off of things it drives you crazy well yeah it is it is definitely an adjustment there's no question about it I've had this stack of books on my coffee table that I've been wanting to get to well now the next week or two hopefully he's gonna get it be an opportunity for me to really jump in there Jeff personal life it's okay however I work in retail and that's been horrible people it's not our fault please treat us like people yeah that's that would be the thing if you're from if you're standing in line at the grocery store you're frustrated because there's no point of paper by the way I'm gonna send a tweet out about that because there is no there's no shortage of toilet paper there there's not a big story in the Wall Street journal New York times yesterday there's no there is no reason and god's green earth to hoard toilet paper there's no shortage the only problem is that the because the demand has been so great what happens is the stuff gets delivered to the store to get put on the shelf and then people just again going to the sporting moment and they buy five times more than they need and then the shelves get happy and it takes a day or two to get them re stocked with the next truck but there's no shortage of toilet paper you don't need to be buying all this stuff truck rates Jeff I'm doing okay I'm very fortunate to drive a truck we're still doing fine when we slow down then the economy is in trouble you know it's Citrix actresses so we're so we're doing you know we're doing fine all these things I think that's kind of that's kind of the attitude I'm hoping that if we all if we all you know take take a deep breath do what people are instructing us to do be smart about this I am hoping that this too will pass in a short period of time Jeff I'm upset there are a limited people affected by this people with kids my co workers without kids haven't been affected in any way why our office is still open well I think offices are still open because I you know the we don't want to completely and totally shut down this country Jeff I'm hurting I'm emotional bowl and emotional with fear and anxiety I'm an uber driver unfortunately it's my full time job I don't know who to pick up yeah and and my guess is there's a lot of people that aren't going out that is an industry is getting hit hard but we're going to do this from time to time over the course of the next week or two I'm coming up after the break I want to focus on some specific things that happened yesterday are happening today but.
"walker" Discussed on Launch Life with Jeff Walker
"A little like why you bother with that just want to make a bunch of money but there's lots of different reasons to do a launch and that will impact your strategy launch life jeff walker okay the killed or has looked over august which means it is officially launched season. I've got my launch masterclass class coming up next month september so it means full-on preparation mode for this. I do this every year about this time so coming up. We're about six weeks out. Now was a launch masterclass and i'll do it is four considering. Maybe even five live training sessions over order. I don't know about ten days or something like that and i'm going to walk you through how to do a launch of course using my product launch formula and full transparency consi here this launch masterclasses actually my launch for product launch formula because at the end of the free lunch masterclass then i'll open up my a yearly class for product launch formula so it's all very very exciting. I'm getting deep into the planning now and i basically walking through my home process. I could say eat eat my own cooking. I eat my own food. Sometimes people say eat your own dog food and so that means i'm looking at you know the process formula that we take people through is we look at first of all. What do you want from your watch. What outcome what's your goal and might sound a little like why you abide with that. I just want to make a bunch of money but there's lots of different reasons to do a launch and that will impact your strategy for instance. Some people might be more more interested in the list built. Some people might be more interested in having the greatest impact rich in the largest number of people. Some people wouldn't want to make more sales at a lower price. Some people want to make you just want to maximize dallas which might mean selling at a higher price so there's lots of different possible possible goals or outcomes that one launch that's one thing that you start off with and then we move into assets like what are your assets. What do you have what in terms of list in terms of following in terms of partners in terms of context in terms of media in terms of product in terms of bonuses in certain scratches the surface. There's lots of different assets. You can bring to the table and you want to look at their complete list of asset based launches.
"walker" Discussed on Launch Life with Jeff Walker
"Dug deep into the research and tried to figure why were these people all point back to the same reason, they were choosing bad markets choosing markets that had no chance of succeeding in the first place. You're listening to the launch life with Jeff Walker. Here's Jeff AM here with Ryan Leveque in Ryan, we've long-term friends for many years, and so Ryan's got a new book, and I always liked to tell people bought my friends books, and as a really cool book. In fact, he's got like one of the top blurbs on here. Right. They're really smart stuff. And so obviously, I I want you to get the book visas an awesome book. And but what the book is about is picking your business. Your either your next business or your first business, and this is some people struggle with. I I started with I sorta decided I was going to start a business and then took me like eighteen months to figure out what market and what product. And so this book is about helping people choose. Yeah. Their business. And so you have a lot of experience choosing business you're in twenty three markets. And so what what were some of the hard fought lessons. Where they all successful. Now, you know. So it's first of all thanks so much for you know, for for being like this. Yeah. So if you I I wrote a book a couple of years ago, it's called ask. And in the book, I shared a methodology I used to enter twenty three different niches twenty two different markets, and it involves using a series of questions, but what they didn't teach in the book is how I chose those markets in the first place. And and the reason why I wrote this book is because I found that people were using the ask Matt that they were asking questions to understand their audience, and yet some people were still failing, and I dug deep into the research and tried to why are these people failing all pointing back to the same reason, they were choosing bad markets choosing markets that had no chance of succeeding in the first place, and as a metaphor using the book and you'll appreciate this. It's like tossing your raft in a river starting a business like tossing. You're wrapped in a river. You expect your river is gonna take you to where you wanna go. Right. The freedom. The impact the the income that you're gonna wanna make you can spend all your time picking the perfect raff. You can hire the best crew you can buy the most expensive equipment. You can paddle eighteen hours a day. But if that raft is facing the wrong direction. You're paddling upstream. You never get to where you wanna go. Or if you put your raft in a river that has no water in it or a river. That's too treacherous that to whitewater, and it's too you're gonna be swallowed up. You're never gonna get there. So what I found is that people were making the mistake of choosing the wrong river. And this is this. This is what this book is all about. So what we did is we looked at twenty markets. We went to looked at all the markets that my successful clients went into and the clients that failed, and it was really inspired by the work of Jim Collins, you've done you've read Jim concept. Right. So built Alaska to great. So Jim Collins is is known for studying the most iconic companies in the world and looking at what separates those that were successful from those that failed along the way we did the same thing. And what we found was that. There was something that we suffer called the five market must have five things that every single one of the successful markets that we went into that our clients went into check these boxes and every single failure was missing one of these five. Thanks. You're gonna tell. You. Cliffhanger. Stay tuned for the next thing. We'll give it right now, actually. So so five things I'll give them to you right now. These are things that you if you're listening to this right now your position right these because they're important. So the first thing we discovered is you wanna be an evergreen market. What that means is a market that was relevant ten years ago. It's going to be relevant ten years from now. A lot of people lost a lot of money in markets like bitcoin. Fidget spinners. I lost money in the scrabble. Tile, jewelry market. It was a fad that lasted about five minutes, and then it fell off a cliff. And so you wanna be in a market. That's evergreen markets like a dog training markets like playing guitar, which is something you and John super into markets like or could care one of our businesses. So that's the first thing. Now, it's not enough to be an evergreen market. You also want to be in what's called an enthusiast market. Not enthusiast market is in contrast to a problem solution market problem solution market is a market where every sale you generate you have to get a new customer. So examples would be things like flood removal, if you get your home gets flooded you solve that problem. You never wanna think about it ever again. Right versus easiest market is. Like playing the guitar caring for your orchid, even the market the you of entrepreneurs, that's an enthusiast market people. Like, I've been in your market for a decade, and I'm still buying courses and books and training and everything like that. You know? So so it's the second one third one is it's not enough to be an an evergreen enthusiasts. One's important. You need to solve an urgent problem in the context of that enthusiast market now at that means is this. If you're in the dog market, you can't just go selling doggie, mugs or doggy Christmas, ornaments, you gotta find what's the burning ten thousand dollar problem that people need to solve in that market. And so. A typical example is if you get a new puppy the puppy starts peeing on the run, right. The dog pees on the rug pees on the carpet pees on the soap if he's on there. That's a problem that makes you say Honey, we got to solve this now. Right. You know? So that's an example of of an urgent problem. So that's number three number four is future problems. You wanna find a market where when you solve that first problem? Whether it's helping the dog potty training, the puppy, the success leads to a new problem that they don't yet have. We'll take this example, right here the market that use our first problem that business owners have is what business do I start? Then it's how do I know what to sell and then it's I'm selling stuff. But I'm doing all the work myself. How do I hire a team? So every level of success leads to a future problem that you can then solve and become that trusted adviser flights. That's number four fifth. One is p WM's players with money. Big mistake. A lot of people make is they try to sell to markets with people that have no money if you can't put a roof over your head. You can't with food on the table. Our people ever going to buy your thing. So PWS what does that mean players with money? It means not selling to billionaires or Decca millionaires. What you're looking for is a market where people spend a disproportionate amount of their income in that area of their life. So golf is the quintessential example, right? The amount of money people spend on golf clubs and golf equipment and golf lessons and go vacations and trips and everything like that. So you want an evergreen market and enthusiast market and urgent problem that you solve immediately future problems that you can solve down the road and a market that is filled with players with money. Those are the five market must out school. And so there's going to be a link down below talking about that a minute. But I I've got a question for you. What are the big mistakes? People make. Yeah. There's there there couple right? And so the whole premise of the book is the conventional wisdom out there is all about starting with what? So what should I create what should I build? What should I sell? The reality is the first question that you want to ask is who who should you serve who's that market? That's restart. So it starts with that. But there are two specific mistakes. I don't want wanna talk about the first has to do with market size. Right. So people tend to go into markets that are either way too big or too small big markets like throwing your raft in the middle of the ocean. You're going to get swallowed up whole small markets like tossing your boat in a a dry riverbed or a little stream that has. No, there's no momentum. There's no current propelling you forward. Wow. That is video that. Exactly. Yeah. There it is. You know? So yeah, this is real live television. This is happening right now. So so that's a personal sake. And so what we did is we analyzed every single the mar- every single one of the markets that we went into. What we looked at is. We use Google trends. Google trends is a free tool that anybody can use its trends dot Google dot com. And we analyze the keyword search volume and every single market. We looked at our winters. We looked at our failures. And here's what we found found that every single one of our winning markets. The search volume all fit within this very narrow keyword, man. So told us exactly how big of a market to go into now. One of the things I share in the book. It was something that we debated literally for months, like do we reveal what the keywords are? And our most successful businesses or do we keep it secret? We decided to reveal what those keywords are. And I teach you how to compare your keyword against those benchmark keywords. So you can see if you're either too big too small, right? And that's fine. Too big. And it's too broad a market. You're not going to be able to speak to them and their language too small, and obviously, yeah. Yeah. So that's that's the first mistake. So there's what we call a market size sweet spot you want to be right in that sweet spot. But that's the first dimension second dimension has competition. Now, the biggest mistakes they hear people with competitions is usually one of the fall either someone has a great idea. And then they get all excited about it. They go online, they do some searching, and they say crap somebody's already doing it. And then they close the book on the idea. And then they turn it away more. They say this great idea they go online and nobody's doing it. And they're like we're going to be rancher. We're gonna hear religions great. The reality is both of those are problematic situations and one of my mentors. Tommy said, you know, Ryan pioneers, get shot settlers, get rich. What that means is you don't want to be the first market. You wanna find a market specifically where other people already succeeding in spite of themselves. But that means is they're demonstrating to make money and yet they're making like five or six mistakes. If you just fixed one of those things you're going to be great. So how do you know if people are making money while the most reliable way to do that is to see who's spending money on advertising online because if someone's spending money consistently on advertising chances are they're making money on return? So what we did is again, we analyze all the markets, and we found that there's a competition sweet spot just the right amount of advertising not too little. So you don't wanna market that has no advertisers. Because that's the tells you that there's no market, but you also don't want to be a market that has too, many advertisers. So we found exactly what that sweet spot is. And in the book, I show you how to research your market to see the amount of competition and see if your market is in that sweet spot. And if it isn't if you should niche down or niche up to get inside that sweet spot cool. So the book is available got link down below of. And so that link TQ just today only. This is late.
