Critical race theory is calling everything you want to control racist until you control it. It's really that simple. It is the idea that the organizing principle society is racism, created by white people, to benefit white people. And everything in society is organized to operate around that.

"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..

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.

You don't want to kind of get that full story because you almost can inevitably guess where that leads And i just never wanted to take a picture of. Are you getting closer to wanting to know i will I most likely would want to particularly now that i have my own son. You had a brother named sean. Who was fourteen years older than you and it seemed like he was a pretty prominent part of your upbringing. No i mean a world where i didn't really have a father raise me Sean took place for me your mom.

They changed my life. So you end up at hotchkiss which is in lakeville connecticut. Tell me about the differences you saw. I like to describe it as you know. Finally observing how the other half lived right. Yeah i got to go to school with rockefellers and fords and is my first View into what wealth was. I really didn't have any experience with that. Other than what i saw on television And i knew right away. I was ill prepared for it. I didn't know what a verb was when i was a freshman there And then only a short period of time to realize. I can compete with them just as well as i can. Compete with anyone else when you said that you saw what wealth was. What was your emotional reaction was like. Wow this is amazing. I wanna be a part of it or was it like isn't fair like what. What was the emotional sancha. Thanks i i thought immediately. I wanted to be a part of this Much in the same way that i went to school with the rockefellers fords. I wanted my last name. The means something. I had one goal in life at the time has get as wealthy possibles quickly as possible. I realized that there are only a couple ways to do it. Stony brook graduated three years And fortunately top of the class and had the opportunity to get a front office role in like i mean every ambition to be a wall street trader and retire young. Make all this money maker. Mom proud only to realize i hated it so you got to wall street. You hated it from day. One as a time employees hated they won. You continue doing it because we thought it was your way out good job painted. By what other jobs did you have growing up. oh man Clean toilets as my first job at a summer camp in new jersey. The boys club in new york. Actually when i was fifteen sixteen i was a camp counselor the following summer an enduring university. I started my first internship. Lehman brothers in the back office operations in jersey city and halfway through that summer found my way into the front office in new york. And then i just had trading internships ever since and the crash of two thousand eight kind saved you because well you tell me but is that one of the reasons why you decide to go to business. Schools knew what was interesting So i left morgan in january. Two thousand eight actually leave. I got fired right and this is before the recession hit. I believe it was like september october of that year. Well at the time. My manager. And i only had one manager and i was his only report About four or five months prior he was let go So i was just meandering around and kind of looking for that mentorship. They couldn't provide it at the time. And i remember it being so devastating because it was about a week or two. Before i was hearing back from stanford i hadn't received a bonus at all my wife and i had just bought an apartment in queens and we're renovating it right. There is kind of one. The two weeks of extreme anxiety angst and fortunately i was able to get in stanford You know is able to get my bonus and everything all worked up. Remember receiving word from stanford. Yeah oh yeah one hundred percent in his early morning. You know derek bolton who is the head of admissions and he calls every student that gets admitted Personally and gets on the phone. And i wasn't expecting this at all. I'm thinking i'm having a conversation for about a minute minute and a half with him as if he were the jp morgan managing director. And i'm like what's going to happen. Like am i gonna get the bonus or not in a minute and a half indirect bolton's like tristen. You do know this is derek. And at that moment i let out a. he'd scream sigh of relief and just appreciated the blessing moment that people who are accepted get calls. I knew it was a thing..

And now that they have a deal with. dr course. that's right it will be imprint too. Yeah yeah absolutely. Yeah so.

I mean that you know. These people have never read a comic in their lives but they hop on amazon prime. 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 toya once. Said the only reason a story has a happy ending is 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 characters to build them out a bit 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 he ever get. We're very comfortable. That at a friend suggests that we that we do Gemma's version admit 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. Were were sent. You see it from a totally different perspective than That's gonna be a lot of fun. Are you working on anything now..

"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.

But it's a premium price and someone who's really got stones as a developer or a hotelier hotel ever or or some you know experience in the resort business if the only unknown was that it's forty miles up a mountain. He could deal with that. But there's a law known for the thought. It was only twenty seven miles from the twenty seven miles from twenty six. Twenty seven twenty miles from the gas challenges. Although he's having you know we love driving stretch of road but to drive it backwards and forward to work every day. Get to drive it right in a controllable environment and then factor in winter. When snowed in. And i've been going for twenty five years. Remember the fires came and then the floods came and then the road was closed three year. A new can't get there. Yeah how do you control that you can get from the back into would cosa tunnel's closed. I mean let's not forget. The kress was closed for eighteen months up until about a year ago. Oh yeah around right. Yeah so so those restrictions. I think make it challenging. It ended up and now the fantasy was their reality. Wasn't so much there but i think it's an opportunity for somebody. I heard those rumblings coupla months ago. I spoke to freddie at this little price in my mind and then he gave me a price wasn't little times like three hundred percent house. He said we're gonna work because for me i wouldn't want to lose the charm of what it already have wrecked yet at the price point where it's kind of pan out and to keep the charm but renovate it to where it's like you know really where you wanna run a restaurant that would be more expensive than raising know bulldozing the whole thing and building something new right.

Nine seven it's on the list just haven't found one yet maybe. Gt three would be good. The solitary hero says The air cooled nine eleven seem small. The newest ones seem huge. Is the nine nine seven the perfect size and do the larger nine eleven's shrink on one with familiarity. Well yes and no maybe possibly yes for me. Nine nine six i would say would be the perfect one.

"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 Jay Bird Watching
"In jose cantata are among the very few names that have actually signed ahead of trevor bauer So craig with that You're fully on board with taiwan walker coming back. Does jacob rizzi intrigue you a little bit. Because there was the suggestion. I think it was wilner but this out there. And i know worked for sports anymore. But he's obviously still pretty well connected will clear expects that they do google after Harder than walker but if he does not come toronto. That's when they have taiwan walker lined up combat. So where do you fall on that continuum in terms of where or who would you like to have back Walker or would you rather than go for the thing. I like about walker as he clearly has already clubhouse. I'm not even arguing with new the fact that you see him in task hernandez bantering back and forth on twitter over stupid things and he's completely engaged with jay station online. When whether it's just random computer goofing around or is ridiculous meals that he has like. He's got sushi every frigging nighters but anyway so that being said i am comfortable and i don't think it's even a risk at this point. Is this figuring out money on getting walker to come back and then after that. I'm sorry to say. I think in paxton over owner is the. There's something about jake tourism. That just doesn't make me very comfortable. I really don't know how to explain it because on paper a great pitcher but just watching him pitch for the raise and the twins. I'm like when's this gonna fall off. Just kinda felt like there was something that that big piece. That would get me excited. Ask somebody with his staff. Wasn't there because in all reality. He falls into that ballpark as far as if you were going to compare him to a pitching great. He's more of like tom. Glavin right than a randy. Johnson or a greg. Maddux three that. He's finding a way to get people out rather than just having the ross stuff to able to get people out. And that's why at at the moment i would be more inclined to spend money on the stuff in walker or taste. I know what you need actually create by saying that about busy because whenever he with the raised a few times Face with the twins it always felt like why aren't we hitting scott like he's not spectacular but he's also not terrible very in the middle of the road. You'd be perfect number. Three in my mind added. You really hyped up time on walker glassy episodes You see fully on board with him coming back. You have walked. yeah. I think he should be the number one Pick right now for the blue jays in terms of available free agents. And i say that over bauer in terms of affordability not talent. I just think it's it's an easier. Grab and that's no disrespect to walker at all but you know the how the market is leveled. Our i just think that.
"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.

"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 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 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. They but you'd get the put for free for free. Hardcopy cloud, hardcover copy of the book ship at you anywhere in the world just pay a few dollars shipping and handling and we got two hundred dollars in bonuses. So I things is I know a lot of people especially who follow your stuff. Love listening to audio books. They'll have listening, right? So we decided we're gonna include a copy of the audio book for free. So that's we're throwing that in versa. Second thing. Talking about niches. We have seven tests in this book that I teach you how to go through and identified the twenty five most lucrative niche markets for two thousand nineteen that pass all seven of those tests, you get access to that link that resource immediately.
