"A bit of a mission to get to, but you get amazing views out and you can see the snow on the rheumatoid ranges to the north. You can see all of the harbor and then you can see out south towards the coast as well. It's very much a bush walk on the white app. So really kind of peaceful, beautiful, getting up there. Bush work meaning there is not an established trail. There is a trail. It's just through the bush. Okay. Yeah. Yeah. There's a really good network of walking trails through the city. Okay. But it's not paved or anything. Excellent. One thing that makes you laugh and say only and Wellington. This really weird art and Wellington sometimes. Okay. And so we had this one that was on top of the city gallery, in civic square, and it was this hand with an eyeball on it. And it was on top of the building and looking down at everybody, just for months. It was very weird. Okay. But then I think the canceled fire works was a good one. It was just like, we want to have fireworks for molding new year, but there's a whale and the harbor. So we cut. That is unusual. That is different. Yeah. Excellent. And if you had to well actually one more. So you've moved away from Wellington, the thing you missed most about Wellington. Besides the people and the Friends, is what? I missed the food. I was a good flat white at a cheese God. Excellent. And if you had to summarize Wellington in just three words, what three words would use? Wendy, foodie and outdoorsy. Excellent. Our guest began has been Kate from Kate abroad dot com and Kate if we wanted to send people to your best post on Wellington, where are we going to send them? I recently wrote a post about the lane ways in Wellington. It's the way that Wellington similar to Melbourne and Australia and lots of different laneway precincts in the city where you can see street art, get some great food, so I definitely recommend checking that one out. And when you say lane ways, I'm hearing alleys. Small spaces in between blocks. Yes, actually. No, it did. You speak a similar language, but occasionally we run in other things. Okay. Yeah. Got it. Excellent. We'll put a link to that in the show notes. And keep thanks so much for coming on amateur traveler and sharing with us your love for Wellington. Thanks so much for having me, Chris.

"Yes, you can kind of tour around this Thornton fear, arrow valley fair, new town. Is a really fun one. And these tend to be on the weekends. I'm guessing? Yes. Okay. So they'll be on a Saturday or Sunday in summer that spread out around the summer. So just depending when you're there. Thornton and new channel, the two biggest Thornton tends to be December and newtown in the new year change bed. Okay. And then Cuba dupa, which is the keyword street, first of all. It's been a bit less of a thing through COVID years, obviously. Right. But they shut down the street for the day. And you get lots of live performers. There's usually a couple of stages that will have local bands performing and all of the restaurants and cafes along Cuba street will sit up in a stall in front of the spot and make street food for the day. And it did get canceled in 2022, but they're planning to have it in the end of March in 2023. So we shall see. Yeah. So yeah, that's a lot of fun. Excellent. Anything else we need to cover in terms of neighborhoods, things to do side trips. So I've covered off our valley, Cuba street area, cube street has night markets every weekend as well, which can be quite good. It's mostly food tracks. There's also so they're kind of waterfront area has to papa. It has a theater oriental bay in all of that. I think through the food is a huge part of Wellington that's worth maybe talking about a little bit more because it's really kind of a culinary capital of New Zealand. So there's Wellington on our plate, which is the big foodie event of the year. But there's also some really top restaurants in the city. So the two I would mention there is here Kai. So that is by manik physio, who was on she was on Gordon Ramsay's show recently, actually. Okay. As a top New Zealand chef who does a lot of Maori and Polynesian cooking styles in her restaurant. So she's got a restaurant in the mount cook suburb of Wellington, which is very difficult to get into, but amazing if you can. Okay. So if you're planning a trip away in advance, that's worth looking into. Lots of native ingredients. Things like that, lots of seafood. Just really interesting, amazing food. And then Rita in our valley, which is just in this little house in the suburb tucked away, you wouldn't know it was there. But does incredible food is more European influences there..

"That's a really good option. So you can do it as kind of a two or three day trip to do the whole thing. Okay. Or just jump on parts of it as you go. And do people are there normal places that people stay in the trip? I see that there's planning guides and things for that, but are there places that you would recommend along the route? Not personally. Okay. I haven't done the whole thing. I've just done sections of it around the hat. So yeah, I think not anywhere I could personally recommend this, sorry. That's all right. If you are heading to white it up, though, would recommend an Airbnb in Martin brough. There's a lot of sort of holiday homes of wellingtonians out there that get rented out as they're being based at a quite nice. Okay. Got it. Any other side trips we want to talk to or anything else we want to do while we're out in this area. So in that area I think winery tour is the Stonehenge stargazing set probably the main thing. But I would also recommend a side trip to the company coast. That's on a train line from Wellington, so that's super convenient. You can jump on at Wellington station and jump on and off at any point as you go. So a couple of things to do out there. You can take the ferry over to kapiti island. It is kind of privately chartered so you have to book away in advance. But it's a nature and scientific reserve. So they do, I believe they have kiwis out there now. And kiwi, the bird not kiwi, the people who grew up in New Zealand. Yes, and not kiwi the fruit. And I keep it the fruit. Yeah. Yeah. Gave me the small bits. You could see out there. You can kind of do a glamping thing overnight on kapiti island. Which is quite nice. There's whale watching tours in that area, although I would say with whale watching and Wellington. Sometimes they just come into the harbor. Yeah. So you might be walking around Wellington waterfront and see a huge crowd of people and they're all trying to take photos of a whale and the harbor. A few years back, we had to cancel some new year fireworks because there was a whale and the harbor and nobody knew how it would react. Yeah, so you can do where you're watching tours, a couple of coasts where there's a walkway that's been put in a recent years, which is called the Pikachu. Every time you say something and I think I've got to Google this and put it in the show notes. I just have to laugh at some of the Maori words because of that one I may have you mailed to me. Okay. Yeah, that's fine. Yeah, so that's a ten K track from high academic to put it all away. It is really cool. It's on the side of the cliff, basically, and I've got suspension bridges, and then all of that so you get beautiful views out to the islands. Really popular thing to do on a nice day. It looks beautiful. It is, it's really nice. If you get a windy day, this is speech and bridges. It could be a bit of a throw ride. I could well imagine. There's lots of good food that's popping up in the company coast as well. Okay. So there's salt and wood collective, which is doing sort of American barbecue, which is different to kiwi valve here. So when you say American barbecue, we've got at least 5 different styles that I know of..

"Will you've been teasing us a bit with weta and with Peter Jackson and Lord of the Rings. Yes. Are you going to keep teasing me or are you going to talk about where we can see more about that? Yeah, so a couple of places for that. You can actually do Lord of the Rings to us from Wellington without take you to a lot of the different places where they were shooting the show in the city. So I did one of those myself when I was younger. I have a brother who's a huge Lord of the Rings fan and you can go on the side of mount Vic. There's a spot where they take the photos with the hobbits of running in the Woods and you can get the giant perspective and see how the films were shot to make the hell that's looked a little and the other characters look much taller and then I'll be speaking a bit more about the tangy little pinnacles is one of the famous sites for more of the rings and it's kind of a day trip from Wellington definitely worth going to and there's a few other things around there. But the real destination for it is where to workshop. So that is on the mirror Peninsula, one of the suburbs of Wellington. And on the drive there, you'll see this giant Wally wood sign. In the hills. I don't remember that. Okay. Yeah. Bit of a knock off of Hollywood. Okay. But one of the latest looks like it's big blowed away. It's very odd theme for Wellington. Yeah, so you can go to where to workshop and do a tour of the as the best way to see it and they show you a lot of the actual props and things from the movies that I've done. So they've done a lot of the rings they've done ever tap. I've done quite a few others since then as well. And they have things like the masks that the orcs wore and you can see how they did the makeup and all of those different things. So they do kind of adult tours and more kids tours that have sort of painting and things like that involved as well..

"And it's about kind of 20 to 30 minutes to the summit from oriental bay and you get beautiful views all across the bay. Got it. And this is the mountain that was named after Queen Vick. Yes. So it's a Victoria. I'm not Victoria. Yep. And it's part of a bigger skyline walkway that connects the whole city. So you can walk from that Victoria all the way to the south coast or up into the hills by the eastern suburbs. Okay. So doing a bigger chunk of that walk as the great option if you've got a few days there and want to go for a longer hike. Got it. And so in oriental bay, you've got to have fish and chips on the beach. If you're there at dinnertime. Okay. So my favorite place to go is the chipotle on Marjorie bank street. And you get your fish and chips and new newspaper or your paper box and take it down and eat it by the beach or there's also some really cute sheds in oriental bay that you can climb on top of great place to get a photo. Very bright primary colors. Painted up there with the little boats in the background. Okay. Yeah, that's kind of the closest beach area to the city. But from there, you're really close also to papa, which is the national museum in absolutely worse spending half a day, or even a full day at. Yes. Yeah, all of the other museums and Wellington are taken skip those go to papa, take your time there. The scale of our war exhibit that was designed by Peter Jackson and where to workshop the team behind her and Lord of the Rings and things is incredible. You've got these mess of scale models. And it's about Gallipoli, which is the main battle World War I that New Zealand soldiers were involved in. So for those who are not familiar, Gallipoli being a Peninsula in turkey and a place where the amateur traveler turkey trip will be going in September, so if you happen to have some friends from one of the anzac countries, they might appreciate that. Very significant Australians in New Zealanders. Right, exactly. And that's in KPop. Yes, so the exhibit isn't a papa. Is that new then a new exhibit? No, so it's been there for about two years now and I believe it's continuing through to 2025. Got it. Hope that would count as news. It's been there since I was in te papa. Got it. Well, and I recall that that was a good museum for an introduction into the local Maori culture as well. Absolutely. So there's a lot there on the history of New Zealand and right from when the Maldives arrived to New Zealand through their history and then when the European settlers arrived, the Maori land was New Zealand land wars and the history since then including the treaty of waitangi between the Maori and the Europeans in New Zealand. So great way to get introduced to that. You can see things like a moldy walker, which is the canoes that they arrived in New Zealand in hundreds of years ago..

"So definitely come in that period and you'll be able to make the most of swimming, kayaking, a lot of the hikes, some of the man accessible in the middle of winter just because of river levels mad things like that. So for any of that, have between Christmas and Easter as ideal. Well, and you see that it's not as good. I wouldn't say the weather there gets bad, though. In the sense of like cold and snowy or things like that, I think I was there in June and it was some rain, but that was about it. Yes. It's node once, in my 6 years of wellness. And it was the lightest know you've ever seen. I think we got the bureau of meteorology people out to say yes, that was actually, it wasn't just a bit of hail. We all got very excited about it. Excellent. And so we were oriental bay. We're having our brunch. Yeah. So from oriental bay after brunch, you can hire kayaks and kayak around the harbor. So you can do that either from queens wharf, which is just off lampton key, or from oriental bay and go back and forth between the two or further around the headland from oriental bay. And they're set up that if I can leave the kayak if I do a one way and get back and all that. You can between oriental bay in Queens wharf. Okay. That not if you go further afield. Got it. There's also bikes that you can hire these croc bikes that have taken off. They kind of look like tuk tuks, except there's nobody driver yet. So it gets a bit chaotic when you get groups of teenagers on them, but a bit of fan to kind of go around the base. So when I say the base, the Wellington coastline goes for about 50 kilometers from queens wharf in the central city, right around to a fellow bay on the south coast, and that faces overcook straight to the south island. So you can run bike walk in each section of that. And it also runs north to the hat, which is an extension of Wellington in the hat river valley, but that section from the city to the hat is not really walkable. Okay. Well, and you said croc bikes and that is an expression that I didn't know at all. We would call them bicycle series. So unlike a pedicab, there's no one in the there's no back. There's no one in the back and somebody in the front, but you're sitting next to each other in two or four people and then peddling to go where you want. Yeah, I've never heard that expression. Yeah, I don't know. It's just what I've seen them called exactly the same thing. Crocodile bikes are a new one to me. Excellent, so we've got our croc bike. We were biking around the harbor and then where are we going to or what are we doing next? So one of the things that everyone does recommend and Wellington is climbing mount bag. So Wellington is very hilly. If you want to walk anywhere that's further than two blocks back from the water, you'll be climbing hills. So you get very fat low like that. So mountain Vic is the most accessible hill to climb. It's not really a mountain that's just called that..

"And I got my bags back on the road. I'm heading out there and I'm ready to go look at real good in my passport oh no. Amateur traveler episode 797. Today the amateur traveler talks about breweries and bays wineries and whales, hikes and hobbits as we go to Wellington, New Zealand. But maybe not maybe not to the day welcome to the amateur travel arm your host Chris Christensen, let's talk about Wellington. I'd like to welcome to the show Kate from Keita broad dot com who's come to talk to us about Wellington New Zealand. Kate, welcome to the show. Thanks, Chris. And Kate, what is your connection with Wellington? So I lived in Wellington for 6 years until very recently. First move there is a brand new university student and ended up living and working there for 6 years. And your originally from New Zealand as we established before we started recording. Yes, I am. So I'm from Hamilton, which is about 6 hours drive north of Wellington. And so I moved to Wellington from Hamilton at 17. Excellent. Excellent. And why should someone go to Wellington, New Zealand? So Wellington, the capital city of New Zealand, but highly underrated. It's got the nickname now of coolest little capital and it really is because you've got so much outdoorsy things that you can do there at space around the Wellington harbor, but also you've got mountains, around lots of hikes, things like that. But it's got also a bit of a hipster reputation, which you definitely find if you go for a walk down Cuba street, but that means there's a real strong foodie culture and based around the arts as well. It's the home Peter Jackson, of Lord of the Rings. It's lots of Lord of the Rings and scenes around Wellington that you can go and visit and you can also see the workshop world there, movie magic is made. Excellent. And what kind of itinerary are you going to recommend for us? Well, so I'd recommend that if you're spending about a week in Wellington, you base yourself around a suburb or an area for the first few days and then venture out of the city for some short trips. So one of my favorite areas in Wellington is our valley. It's very much got that kind of hipster vibe. You'll find things like an old video store there. There's a great walk at the pole hill reserve where you can get spectacular views of the city better than mountain vac, which is recommended in a lot of tourist guidebooks..

Dan did i not use it. Call the mike norval which he's begging for you because you just cut a couple of els out of off of his record but it's mike l. Not the most impressive thing that anyone did with els this week and you see after fresno state fresno state Hasn't been this good since the days of Moustachioed pat hill. That guy that is a bad man. Pat hill beats ucla. I think everybody was saying chip. Kelly was back beats. Ucla and then the fresno state twitter account puts up the hollywood sign with only the else good banter. There's a lot of good panter. West virginia had exit sandman and michigan. State did the thing where they took a turn the upside down which. I don't like normalizing. This is not okay not okay. it's not okay. Someone did that to me in atlanta and others are. We gonna have a problem i said. Hey good game and they turn the upside down that someone just going with the middle finger like this you. It's so disrespectful. Why don't we offer this. Are we going to have a problem. Is something i haven't heard since march schleyer spin it at you when you got into a twitter spat with him and then ran away. Yes which is very intimidating. Which is why. I just replicate it.

I i was very intimidating when he said we're going to have a problem here so now anytime i get new and almost confrontation just say that because i realized how disheartened i was doing it now.

Times is in college and yet no one talks about that. It's amazing on a field of world. Class athletes that includes tyreek hill. Okay includes patrick mahomes. That guy stands out. He's the best athletes on that fields using that master. Not to stand down now. Way is surprising dimsdale. He is the reason. He's playing quarterback and the reason confused bill polian is because he is more athletic. Could then anyone on the field and we are making a move ever ever so quickly. I guess i would say given the feet. Were talking about one kyle. Murray is doing where we're forgetting about the size. And how your hands size. And all that stuff and i does not seem that we're headed toward an an evolution in time where we're going to arrive at every team's best athlete is going to be the quarterback in tampa right. You'll still be there. I love that we can say. He's not an athlete while at forty four. He's doing athlete things that we've never seen before god said flatly. Go ahead dan. I defy you to say he won't be doing it at fifty and i was scared to say a. How could you doubt the man at this point. I mean honestly. Because he's sasha baron cohen's a you have him like you have him at fifty. Sasha baron cohen is actually a little bit older he's fifty but there are all sorts of fifty year olds out there. That can't be doing what tom brady is doing. I can't believe that i'm still here talking about this. And is and it's not going to. It's not going to let up. No and here's the other thing grog at least through the first two games of this season looks like rock as prime. I mean he looks fantastic. It's amazing this is a different gronk than we saw last season. I mean i will say it again. Because i really do feel like. We underestimated the fact that the tampa bay bucks won the championship with an antonio brown. Who didn't look like the antonio brown that they got antonio brown was the best receiver in this league. Stu gods wasn't that long ago but then everything that happened with him made last year thing. That didn't fit on top of everything else. That brady has done was brady. The only public person on antonio brown's side during all of that was he the only one that antonio brown can look at it and say well. That guy never left my side when i was dealing with things and then what do they do yesterday. Because mike evans only had three catches in the first game they because it's atlanta right and they know he's eight now in atlanta's broken. He got him a couple. Just got a couple at forty four years old. Hey mike here. A couple of touchdowns here are tidies as they call them in a really annoying fash. There are a couple of guys i feel bad for. I have no idea what happened. The scotty miller. And i have no idea what's going on with cameron rates. That used to be go-to guy. I mean that's like the seventh guy. He throws dude our looks at now and oj howard. He picked wisely you. Can we stop talking. About whether or not sean payton has fixed. Jameis winston lazic. Are we just going to do this. Every are we gonna do it every week. We're going to go back and forth. You guys were arguing that the quarterback for the bucks was blind. Got an eye surgery. Nobody in the league knew it. Nobody nobody in the you guys were arguing after week. One that he had gone from blind to being able to see and from thirty interceptions two five touchdowns in a game because he had some sort of ice. Now dan week. To what are we doing. Week to pit. Carolina panthers for real. Yeah wow they do that to janus mighty good team. They got there and the ambiguous carolina area. Also maybe sean payton not a quarterback whisperer after all. We're going to change that from week to we. Hotseat item is the best quarterback coach in the history of the nfl last week. One game. that'll do it. He's only got two receptions. I mean brady has to those was ready to schedule appointment. Get lake last week if that had been thing. Do you realize you guys realize what a great spokesman for jameis winston would have been. He could have. He would've corner this market on on fixing your eyesight. If he could have just replicated week one every week for the rest of his life as opposed to being jameis winston week to meena had that one called she said and these are the things that are always confusing to me. Because i thought that was surprising. Result to me that sat there saints. Whatever it was minus. Three and a half. And i'm like well you got i mean. Look at look at the saints. It sam darnold but they had their secondary out or two of their corners. Where out and and we don't pay attention to that stuff well. Gamblers do obviously gamblers. Good one so good gamblers. We are not paying attention to that. I on the other and we'll turn on the game. And i'm like i picked the over. Wait a minute. Why is it four hundred miles per hour winds and snow. That'll happen to be regularly. Put this on the poll gear at lebatardshow. Do you often turn on your television after gambling on team and her surprised by the wind and snow committing condition. It's something we should be looking for sure. I am admitting on the front end scientific. I could probably use slightly more information than i have. But i feel like most people listening to this would've said you know what i got the saints in that game. I got the saints against carolina. I will take them on the money line. I will take them in my survivor pool. There was a stretch. It was last season where there were three consecutive games in cleveland. I think we all.

"So we come back from multiple callbacks, 'cause we were like, there's no way. Things don't work out like this for us. But it just did. And so casting was really, really fun. And everyone ended up just being local to Wellington. Because like you guys are saying there's so much talent outside of Atlanta. And LA and New York. There's so much talent in those places for sure. But the best roles at least for our film were right here. So. Yeah, exactly. And sometimes that works even better because again, like you're saying you got to have sort of a family on set because if you don't have that relationship that you're having fun, you know, because I think it should be about having fun being professional, but if you're not having fun, I mean, then it's not, you know, the production value is not there either. Long amounts of hours with each other. And very hot conditions. So we'll talk about weather, right? So when we were following it, I thought you would talk about hot conditions. There's always something that happens on the set. There's always a setback there's always something, so maybe you can, you know, most people talk about, you know, oh yeah, we had this, we had that, but you girls had something bigger, maybe you can tell us about that. Yes, because what's so funny, I'll tell you is that we had all the typical things like our grip truck got stuck in the sand, our ice cream truck broke down. And we rarely ever talk about those challenges because they are all, you know, I guess overshadowed by the fact that this film is about no rain and on day 12 of production we had to stop everything because a hurricane for hurricane that category four hurricane. It was headed towards Wilmington. And not moving. And he was coming right towards our city. So we had to stop on day 12 with an 18 day shoot and everyone evacuated to places like Charlotte or Atlanta. And we were stuck outside of our town for two weeks. I didn't know what we were going to come to when we came back. Because when Lincoln essentially became an island, it flooded everywhere. We weren't sure if our locations were going to be okay. And not even just for our films, but because those people who came our family do, and we didn't want their businesses to damage. There was a lot and I was also going out of the country during that time. So amazing Hannah, somehow put the Tetris of our crew to schedule back together and everyone was able to come back two months later to film. But then it was 44°. Okay. So one question about that, I mean, so when you have something like that, I said back. It's very hard on your motivation. It's very hard because now you're like, what am I going to do? And it takes a toll, especially if you're an artist, you're trying to create something that's meaningful, and now you have a big setback. How do you bounce back from that emotionally? You know, just say, you know, I just keep doing it. Keep doing it. Besides that you have the responsibility of finishing, but just more in the sense of like a personal, you know, no. The question. Hold on, but you think that's okay. Like, how did we do that? I think part of it is just we have invested so much already. And I think we could say just ourselves invested, but then when we look at our crew and our cast and all the people that contributed to this crowdfunding campaign and shared our film like when we are doing our campaign, it's like it didn't feel like it was our movie and felt like it was our communities movie. And so it had to, we had to finish it. We had to keep on going, even though we were tired, because not only us but so many people aboard their heart and soul into making this happen. And it just, it just wasn't really an option to be like, well, you know, we tried our best. And we had a lot, I mean, a hurricane was big, but we also hit some equally challenging things during that production after production before production. Just a lot of lifestyle, hard stuff in between. And so it's kind of like, I don't know. We just kind of had, I think also 'cause we're a partnership. So when one person is tired, the other person can lift them up and vice versa. Megan, what do you think? Yeah, the thing I was thinking of is a lot of times those setbacks I think we used as motivation to be like, this will not stop us. And it almost made us get more fire. Every once in a while it gets to you. And I think that that's when it's okay to call up your friend or like I got to just call it Hannah. And sometimes we're like, I can't do it today. Like today I take a break from the movie. Because maybe these are a can be at least a nonstop thing you're working on. You can really get burnt out on it. And the thing we didn't want to do is get so tired that we made a wrong decision. Out of just because we felt fired. So the process of making the movie took longer than I think some do, but a lot of that is in part because we allowed ourselves to take a breath if we needed it. Yeah, that's extremely important. I mean, you pretty much said it like you have to step back and do something fun, relax and then come back to it, right? I mean, that was guilty. I feel guilty. Exactly. Well, I mean, I was going to ask you about what your advice for filmmakers was, but I can not set out, but let me make sure that's where it doesn't have another question. And then I'll ask my final question that you girls go with just show the trader one more time do a little plug for Amazon Prime because I know that it's on Amazon Prime and then go from there. I'll check well also if we have any questions on our site. It was exploring your social media. And I was interested because you put it on your Facebook our hopes, raise autism awareness, brand jobs to our community, provide opportunities for women to live if you want it to elaborate on those. Yeah. I think it was really cool. We were able to pay our crew and we were really proud of that. It wasn't a huge amount. But we were also able to give them an interest in the film. So once the film makes money, our hope is that it does because we don't have investors. It is our crew and our cast and we can give that money back to them. In 2018 when we filmed our town was in a really big world for any filmmaking happening in the area. And it kept everyone energized. I think it kept. It gave people opportunities for roles they hadn't begun before. And now they've moved on to studio productions in our doing those roles. So I think got that goal and yes, number one is to raise autism awareness and acceptance in this film to get people talking about it. And to just promote the message that there is no such thing as normal. And we are here to accept each other but also ourselves. And then finally, from when it in film, you know, one of the reasons we set out to even write female characters is because we are actors first. And we auditioned for a lot of roles that were very grateful to audition for their typically very small and they could be like dumb blond or quirky white dress and we're like, ah, women are so much more than that. And so our hope is that people can see two female characters interacting that just have a family relationship and the complexities that come behind that. So those are our hopes. Thanks for reading those. I clearly asked about them. That's awesome with those goals that you have for this film. I was just amazing. Yeah, and I think that's important. That's very important to have goals. I mean, other than that, I think you have given great advice throughout the whole talk right now, which is really what we want to do. And I think you couldn't have said it better that, you know, you're doing this for yourself. Obviously, but also people get opportunities because they do a project. You know, like not a lot of times, you know, people are just doing something in the last 6 because something there's always someone watching, right? I always say that. There's always someone looking at your staff and then seeing what's out there and it's great that you're actors or maybe someone got a production somewhere out of that. And I think that's the most rewarding experience that you can get as a filmmaker to really see somebody in your film, making it as well. So we're going to do a little plug. How do we find your film? So I'll put it on the comments after the link, but yeah, so you can find drought on Amazon Prime. This week actually we're running a special where you can rent for 4.99 and purchase for 9.99. But then at the end of this week, you'll go back up to its normal price. You should just buy it then, right? You know? Yeah. And if you like it, it would mean so much if you guys rated it and murdered you. I'm an honest review. You know, that's really important to us. So yeah, it was on prem. Okay. All right. So this is I promise this is the last question, okay? So this is just if you were to tell yourself before you even started this project. One thing that you would have done differently, maybe just or you would have told yourself before you got this project going like that, maybe yeah, we could have gotten different at different ways. You know, like, oh, sorry, Meg's. You know, you go first. I was thinking you have sex. Okay. I feel like everything was supposed to happen the way it was. So I wouldn't change anything because had learned so much. The learning curve on this project was huge because every single role that Megan and I stepped into was new. But I will say if I could go back and tell myself something that I'll continue to tell myself for the next projects that we do, I really struggled on set and only Megan really knows this. As a director, because I felt like I was completely under qualified, which I was and still am. But I felt like I needed to know everything. Especially technical stuff, which I was not familiar with at all. And so I really got in my head when I was in director mode that I just was so inadequate and it made it was just really unhealthy. Unhealthy thoughts, you know, of like, I'm not good enough or like, no one's gonna listen to me, all that stuff. It's such a waste of time. And so what, maybe I don't know all the answers, but that's why you have a team. So I think I would go back and tell myself just chill. Just trust your gut. You know that other people are working just as hard, you don't have to know the answers, and that's why you have all these great people with you. So yeah, I think that's maybe something that I go back and tell myself. Intel others, you don't have to know everything, just take it one step at a time. That's perfect. Yeah. You know, it's going to sound cheesy. It's mine. It's about the same. I would think in my modes though if I don't know something, I try to learn everything I can about it. And sometimes you just don't have the capacity. I don't need to know everything that the gaffer is doing. As I do more or sound or the first AC or DIT, you know, I wanted to know everyone was doing. I think that comes from a good place. And I think what Hannah's talking about comes from a place of wanting to be a good team, team member. But being a good team member is sometimes releasing responsibility and letting people do what they're there to do. And as we do more projects or as you can do more projects out there, you'll learn more and more each time. And you'll feel, I think more like you have more knowledge of everything going on. It's okay if you don't. That's perfect. I think that's perfect by this way. I mean, pretty much what we've been saying and we're gonna keep saying it and we're gonna try to do this little segment as much as we can find filmmakers that are doing great things in this area and outside this area because I think we're all connected anyway. So maybe one, maybe one day we'll get to work in a project together, and definitely. Ladies, we wish are the best and the best of luck on your future and it looks like it's gonna be a pretty good one. I mean, you have a great movie that I think is going to inspire not only filmmakers, but just anyone looking to just be creative.

Happy anniversary, Animal Crossing!
"This day one year ago. The nintendo switch game animal. Crossing new horizons launched when we were all hunkered down at home trying to keep ourselves and family safe amid the pandemic we had this digital island oasis where we could fish build plante and simply enjoy our surroundings without worry joining us now to talk about. The anniversary of animal crossing is first time. Guest felicia wellington rebel and engagement editor with usa. Today who has written a very delightful piece exploring nine other cozy nintendo switch games for fans of new horizons felicia. Thanks so much for being here. It's great to have you. Thank you for having me so when i play new horizons. I didn't really know a lot about animal crossing. I knew bits here. And there. But i really didn't play much before this. How familiar were you with animal. Crossing before you started new horizons. I guess i'm not so different. I mean i was pretty familiar. Played new leaf that was for three d. s. Forget when that came out maybe like twenty eleven twelve and pocket camp. I was really can't probably because it was on ios. And i get engaged with it a little bit more often than like up either held or you know a conflict playing a console game and i knew it existed before that and i'd heard amazing things and the characters are in other games but i think this is the first time even outside of pocket camp that i just really like all the things. Let's all things here. I you know the thing that that struck me. When i was first playing new horizons last year was just it felt so peaceful and it felt nice to just concentrate on really simple things like i need to find another type of fruit to grow in my island or oh i need to build a new room in my house or oh and need to find something i need to build this or find this fish and it just felt so simple and compared with what we were dealing with in real life it was just so nice to get away What did you enjoy. Most about playing new horizons. Definitely all of those things. I think it the game releasing at the same time that everything shut down and i'm in a state that was one of the first Completely shut down New jersey and so it really was just. It was like a place to visit. It was a social outlet Because you can buy friends to your island etcetera but you're also just interacting there were all these new interactions in the game that yeah going on a year. You're just like you already said that twice today. My island villager. But in the beginning it was all very brand new. You're still inviting people. The goals were still fresh. It was kind of. Like what do i want my island to look like and i just couldn't get enough and i still enjoy a lot of those same things as the new releases. Come out. I really do like i know that. Not everyone is pleased with some of their choices but the very fact that it's just constant new materials over the span of not just this past year but i think they've got stuff plan for the next couple of years. I think that's amazing. And i know it's not too different from previous games. I'll take a very much been a thing to look forward to In a world where we don't have a whole lot of things we can go out and experience and so being able to go into this digital world and really look forward to some of those goals are really kind of grind away at something. Adorable has been been a lot of fun. Yeah that was one thing i love to is meeting the neighbors you know and be able to socially interact with people because it's hard when you're guaranteed you can't really see anybody in person and that was like a nice little kind of weird thing where you know you just got to meet your neighbors and hang out and talk and stuff and it was such a simple thing but it was just really great to yeah. I absolutely love it. I know that some of the same functionality and previous games where like you could find out like their favorite drink and music is isn't quite in this game yet but in the beginning i didn't care it was just like who's moving to my island because you know some of those first ones you don't have a choice And then you're traveling from ireland. Define the person that you want or even just like looking up who you might wanna. Is this person still in the game. Who were the new characters. I don't know there was just a lot of i. I'm gonna call it collection. Finding you know where it's just like. Ooh all these new opportunities. What are what are the possibilities. Which ones do i want with my aesthetic. I don't know there's a lot of fun in that almost like childlike wonder. That's there yeah absolutely. So let's talk about your piece. You mentioned nine switch games. The player should consider if they love animal crossing if we had narrowed down to three. Which would you choose bellboy. Fine giving getting to nine okay fair. There were a lot of games on there. And they're all kind of open world. So i can see why you might just want some top choices. So let's see well. Ledge legends zelda is like a forever recommendation. So i'll pick three others. That one counts though. It's like your bonus always recommended any game in that franchise that whole series So well last campfire. I think is one of my favorite games on the list. No no no offense to all the others are all great but there is something about that game. It's a little haunting but Not in a bad way but oh kind of like. Wow like a very emotional game but i just i'm so drawn to it. I really enjoyed playing it. The puzzles I don't know everything about that. Game just really drew me in and another emotional one was Spirit fair. I think that when a lot of people recommend mount one it was really good. I'm happy check that one out. At first i was like. I'm gonna cry when i play that i'm good. I've done enough crying. But it really is just a great game and i'm really. I'm really thrilled. That i tried that one. I almost passed on it. And then i should say star valley which is great. But i'm gonna say little would as the third choice and here's why you can't really go wrong with you either one. They're pretty similar like very similar and they're probably both the most similar to animal crossing. But when i pick up the switch i tend to feel drawn to littlewood a little bit more. Sorry starting valley. I just i just open it way. More than i do start started valley little would so that will be the recommendation simply because at that because ultimately when i pick it up what do i go to play the most. If that's it then that's one. I should recommend okay. I'm going to have to try little would on the switch at. It's like super indy. I think it was just one guy who i think. He had a kickstarter for it and finally got it published. And i don't know. I really i really like it

I and Being christian being spiritual at the same time And so yeah it was. it was through here that That i i had it Gosh that would have been way back in two thousand eighteen. I think july august. And how long have we been doing show by we've shed a lot of biblical moments on. It's not a surprise to me that they might be studying your trips to wait on. Wellington dotting the alex. You're the possible for church. Made up mostly of lgbt on people who've been rejected from mainstream churches yes so Mcc has been around in brisbane for forty five years And you know we've been cold at the church For gay people We've been cold especially during the eighties and nineties. The the church that has aids We have an aids quilt by sydney congregation in brisbane congregation. And for a while we were the only people who would do funerals for people who died of aids in nineteen eighty s and ninety s And we lost about one third of all of pastas globally. hiv aids. Yes so we're very much a church run by the people. It's called dumb. If you're a church history node like me then Congregational model of church. Which means that the church decides the pasta is the church decides what direction even what beliefs the church has is very much a grassroots organization. And it's not so much sort of top heavy pasta decides everything Organizations is much more much more grassroots than that overall. Unfortunately in australia the landscape spiritually is very very tough for gay people. I think melbourne is probably the most a gay affirming city in terms of church. Wise there are just many many more gay affirming congregations. When i say affirming it means you don't just have to sit at the back and we'll take your money but don't you think that you can get married or anything else. It's people know we will do your marriage. We will Support your relationships we. We're not trying to secretly ten. You straight we don't think you're going to hell. And we fully welcome you. So there's many of those In melbourne including mcc melbourne including several anglican churches several uniting churches in sydney. This probably about five or six in brisbane. There's just three out of hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of churches. And it's it's sad because you know in america despite america being a much more conservative place in indianapolis the city that i studied in to be a pasta. There are something like thirty five. Well affirming churches
President-elect Joe Biden declares "clear victory" and calls for unity
"After a cliffhanger vote count, Mr Biden is projected to have won the states of Pennsylvania and Nevada, taking him over the crucial threshold of 270 electoral college votes. President elect up to the stage a few hours ago to officially declare victory in front of a crowd in his hometown of Wellington, Delaware. The people of this nation have spoken. They've delivered us a clear victory. A convincing victory. Victory. For we, the people Way one with the most votes ever cast from presidential ticket in the nation. Joe Biden has said he wants to restore the soul of the United States and Americans needed to stop treating their political opponents as enemies call for unity was echoed by the vice president elect Kamila Harris. You chose hope. And unity, decency, Science and, yes, truth you chose Joe Biden as the next president. And Joe is a healer, a uniter, a tested and steady hand. One person who knows Joe Biden well as Amy Pope. She worked alongside him for a number of years. In her former role, is US deputy Homeland security adviser to President Obama. She's now an associate fellow at the think tank Chatham house and she joins me now. Amy, What kind of President Will Joe Biden B? How will he differ from the last Democratic party President Barack Obama. Joe Biden is really a kind of Washington expert, Hey, has a long history in the Senate. He knows many, many, many of the key political influencers and legislators in Washington and he's the kind of person who just has gotten to know them and build relationships with them on And for that reason, I think he's coming in at the right time in terms of trying to build relationships across the island and get something done. Do you think that he really is going to be able T turn that to his advantage? It just seems that there's so much animosity in US politics right now. I think it's going to be tough. And I think even for someone like Mitch McConnell, with whom who's the Senate majority leader with whom the president elect has a strong relationship, there will be pressures on him not to find common ground and not to cooperate. But on the flip side, there are a lot of Americans who are looking for Congress and the president to work together. Who are looking for some level of functioning capacity within Washington. They'll feel that pressure to it's hard to see how this will play out, and it'll depend frankly, about what the voters were saying to their members. Amy, I'm going to bring my guests in
NZ election: why voters chose 'health over wealth'
"Into mania in. New Zealand. Tonight. New Zealand has shown the Labor Party, its greatest support and at least fifty years. End For that. I only had two simple words. Thank you. Well that was prime, minister? I done this she celebrating her emphatic election victory last weekend. Now the significance of the Labor Party landslide. It's not just that it's seen as a reward for her decisive response to the COVID crisis. It means New Zealand now has its first single-party government in decades. So what does the mandate main for new? Zealand's economic landscape as it faces its worst recession in nearly a century. We'll deliver a progressive transformation across the ditch. What happens if New Zealand does not sort ad its economic challenges quickly. trans-tasman cousins could I become fouled state? All of the heart, which is executive director of the new. Zealand initiative and Josie. PAGARINI is the executive director of the Council for International Development both a based in Wellington all of Josie welcome to. Radio National. Hello Tom. JC How do you account for Cinderella Dunes emphatic victory. Well, I mean you've got to say the popularity is genuine people lover. She's like a superstar she goes into to shopping malls and gets mobbed but I think you'd say you'd have to say to that that election campaign was incredibly disciplined Labor wanted a covid election. They wanted election that was about who stopped US getting sick not who's going to get us back to work and they succeeded in getting that they also wanted election that was focused not on labor, not particularly on policy, but almost entirely on just cinder. So if you the completely unscientific focus. Group in the Texas, you'd ask a taxi driver who you voting for, and let's say I'm voting for just under the all of a juicy. He reflects the Conventional Wisdom Abacha in Dorado and that her aggressive handling off covered and not to mention her response to the mass shooting of Muslims in in Christchurch earlier last year the gun control measures she put in place all that explains Justin, Dryden's remarkable political popularity. She's also received widespread global price for being a stateswoman who's kept New Zealand you nodded even in the face of multiple crises, your not fanned. Why? Well. First of all, I would agree with our choice just as remarkably popular and. This scenes from her election campaign were quite telling wherever she turned up. They were hundreds of people around her celebrating her. My experience with taxi drivers though is a bit different, maybe different taxi companies are us. Last The last few times I had known taxi drivers They complained that their businesses stoned at the city's undying out that we are not recovering properly from the crisis. That business is simply not what it used to be an typically detect Texas. Of course when I'm flying from Wellington to Auckland, and have to get to the CD and you can see the traffic in the city, the city looks kind of dead. We've got a massive challenge ahead on the economy in these eland, and that's why I haven't really seen much from the government in general plans of how to revive the economy and how to get us out of they have effectively beaten the virus now twice. But they haven't actually given us any clear indication how they're going to lift us out of this because the protections for public debts for unemployment. From monetary policy, they actually scare me when you look at them many New Zealand business figures share all of skepticism is fair Point Jersey. Yes, it is because the election really did focus on cousin who it was absolutely about who stopped US getting sick and so it was actually really hard to get any coherent debate about what is the plan B if we don't get a vaccine next year, what is the retail kind? So it was all very vague that staff and. You're right. All of you got different taxi companies to me to probably but another thing I heard in Texas a lot was all well if it's between wealth and health, I'm GonNa pick health and just send a picked health. Well, of course, you know we know that that's a false dichotomy it's not health or wealth. If you country is unable to trade and you borders closed long-term, then you're not going to raise the revenue to be able to have decent hospitals. You're not going to get your school buildings. Renovated and so on, and you're not going to be getting elective surgery and people are actually going to get unhealthy. So but it was no one wanted to hear that town that was the thing. No one wanted to hear a debate about next year they just wanted to know that. Anti Cinde was gonNA look after and that was it. Yes we'll enjoys does mentioned the vaccine just interested in like most western leaders frankly, she's pretty policy on the likelihood of a vaccine in coming months but the question here is what if a readily available vaccine if it ever happens what if it's a long way off I mean for how long all of our the present measures sustainable I mean, how long can you zeal and cut itself off from the outside world? Well I think that is actually a political question not an economic run from an economic perspective I. Think it would be desirable to New Zealand to the words more quickly but can do the safely. We can still have proper border to ensure that when we opened up to the word again, we do this without importing the virus. But I think the government sticks to the precautionary principle at the moment, and that's a political decision because the public doesn't want the government do anything outspent opinion polls before election showing that more than seventy percent of New Zealanders what actually like to keep the borders Morris close and these are people who probably don't have any immediate travel plans or maybe don't have any family abroad. Heavily business to do abroad, and so for them life is quite pleasant as long as they also keep their jobson New Zealand's, and so they would rather electric continue the status quo until that vaccine arrive. So it is difficult for the government to go against this when the public is. So strongly in favor of just keeping the border shut as they are but at some stage will just have to a because some the economic consequences of this some prolonged isolation are going to be enormous Jesse is point. Absolutely, you could not get a discussion out during the election campaign about elimination versus suppression of the virus, and so it was it was almost impossible to talk about the plan. B. If the vaccine doesn't turn up which let's face it, it's unlikely tuneup and be available next year so. Realistically the from left or the right of the political spectrum. It was really hard to talk about how long do our border stay closed, and those of us myself included who were trying to say, you know look closing the borders as a six month policy not a two year policy. He can't possibly maintain a closed border and keep trade going even though we can still export milk powder and so on. But the ability for our businesses to connect with the world and so on for us to travel is just not feasible but whenever I said that I would get attacked on twitter and everywhere for being the head of a capitalist difficult. So you could not get a good debate going about this even though the w eight show for example was saying, Hey, you know strict lockdowns and we've had very strict lockdowns for lockdowns are not the best approach if you're doing a cost benefit analysis on either health or economic growth.
Arlie Hochschild with Krista Tippett

You'll understand this I grew up in Oklahoma and kind of went far far far far far away and And that's become more important to me in these recent years that you know that he and and then our studios in Minneapolis has been for a long time and. I've thought across the years about how the show might have been served by being on one of the coasts and. And in these last few years since two thousand sixteen. I'm I'm so glad we're in the middle of the country you know. It's Really important in life giving. So. Good Yeah So, you were the child of a Foreign Service officer. So you sound like you grew up all over the world. Well. Yes to to some degree. Yeah. Starting at age twelve. Yeah it was pivotal. Father was ambassador us. Ambassador to New Zealand.

And then New Zealand Wellington New Zealand. The university. there Victoria University so in New Zealand and then my folks were in Ghana and I spent a summer. Ana But by then I was in college and then they weren't Tunisia and I. Actually spent five months a doing a study on the emancipation of Tunisia and girls so. These French questionnaires. Second Year of Grad School at Berkeley. So. yes. So I was very. Fortunate, really to get to experience all that. Yeah. Yeah was there a religious or spiritual background to your childhood in your family or in those places? Yeah. Yeah. I would say there there was And So. Are we starting your going? Yeah. All right okay. yeah my parents were very religious, unitarian? And So religious in the sense of it being a very important thing to go to church on Sunday and. My brother and I would. Kind of. Wrestle with each other and tickle. In the back seat of her whole sudden Hudson in Silver Spring Maryland and And Go. Drive to all souls UNITARIAN church in Washington DC very important to my father especially and I didn't feel particularly religious. At that point and. But if I look back on it what. the influence of that was is that. There's An important part of one's self to express and to learn to develop and that. For. UNITARIAN inside the message I took away is that it's very big world and we have to learn to. get to know and. Empathize with. People in radically different cultures and that that's a good thing to live in a big world. I think by the time I was. Sixteen. I had that message, but I felt something missing. And I got interested in quakers who? Be Much. More. Okay Gang. So what are we going to do about it? You know view terriers were very talky. Talkers talk talk of the thinkers looked like they were kind of. interesting. They were doers, and so I would say. That that. Connection for me. when I was in high school very informal I didn't become a former quaker anything. But It led me to volunteer on weekends when I was in high school At something we called Neighbourhood House on tenth and L.. Street. was in the middle of the. the back area of Washington
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart: Janissary Music
"I'm Naomi Moon Welcome to classics for. Kids. Let's start this show off with a bang. You. Know how? When a certain kind of music catches on whether it's rap or jazz or Latino suddenly you hear it all over well, all over Europe in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries you would have heard Turkish flavored music like this marked by Ludwik von Beethoven. A very reasonable question would be if Beethoven was German, what was he doing writing Turkish music? The Sultan who ruled Turkey used to have a very select group of guards called Jan Aseries, actually, jams areas, what the Turkish term for new army sounded like to European ears like most armies. The Janice series had a band and since this was a Turkish army, the Janice every band used Turkish instruments like bass drums, triangles, and cymbals when the Sultan of Turkey since January, bands to Europe people went nuts over the exotic sound of those instruments hey, couldn't get enough of Turkish. Music. European composers knowing what their audiences wanted to hear started writing. Turkish. Sounding pieces and even set some of those pieces in Turkey This is the overture to Mozart's opera the abduction from the Seraglio. Seraglio. Was the Turkish Sultan's palace a palace which he kept US sizable Harem of wives. Plural. Very poor. Mozart wasn't the only composer to set an opera in Turkey German composer. Carl Maria. Von Vaber did to and he even gave his opera a Turkish name. Abu Hassan. And Turkish sounds crept into orchestra music too. For Instance Haydn's symphony number one. Kendrick. Since people associated the sound of drums, triangles and cymbals with Turkish army bands that Haydn symphony came to be known as the Military Symphony. The best symbols in the world are still made by the same family that made them in Haydn's day the Zil jains, the name zillion is Turkish for symbol maker a Turkish Sultan gave it to the first symbol maker in the family almost four centuries ago today zillions live in Massachusetts where they make the symbols you here in rock bands and symphony orchestras. That's from Wellington's victory by Beethoven. After. The FAD for January music died down the cymbals bass drums and triangles didn't go back to Turkey those instruments. Oh, their place in today's orchestras and bands to the eighteenth century European craze for Turkish music of all the composer's latched onto the sound of the January band I think Beethoven did it best? My favorite bit of January music is tucked into the middle of the last movement of Beethoven's Ninth Symphony. That Sound is a controversy soon, the lowest pitched woodwind instrument there is it's acting almost like a bass drum. Back when January music was popular, you could buy a piano equipped with a special. January pedal by thumping down on it, you could accompany yourself with your own personal triangle and drums percussion section. Unfortunately today, those pianos are only found in museums when both amodio Mozart composed his Turkish Rondo he managed to get the piano to imitate Janice drums even without a special pedal. That's Mozart's Turkish Rondo. Now that you know about the Turkish part to find out what a Rondo is, join me next time for classics for kids.

Is It a Good Time to Start a Marketing Agency
"Welcome to another episode of Marketing School I'm Eric Su and I'm Neil Patel and today we're gonNA. Talk about if it's a good time to start a marketing agency so right now just to give context for everyone we're in the middle of covert, and we are in the middle of riots and protests right now the united. States at least so you have a lot going on, so neil I'll go to you I. Do you think it's a good time? Why or why not? So whether? It's a bad economy? Good economy, a recession, or there's things that you. You can't control. It's life i. do believe overtime things do go back to normal. You know specifically I'm talking about things I it. Where eventually go away so I believe anytime is a good time to start a business. As long as you think you can provide value critic product, critic, good service, you know even though there's a lot of people who aren't spending money. There always is other people who are spending money. Can you get to make an you generate sales to neal's point? There's people that are doing really well right now. There's people that have been. been absolutely crushed. The people that are doing well right now are spending while I'll give you an example. You know if you're running a of streaming business right now. You're probably doing better right now. If you're doing online education, you're probably doing better right now. Depending on what you sell, if you're P, you're probably doing better right now. So all that to say is at a time where the biggest agencies in the World Command, the largest budgets, big contracts, and all that a lot of people that are working with these large agencies they don't necessarily want to. To! Pay those dollars anymore. They want an opportunity to work with smaller shops. And this is your opportunity to to prove yourself, and if you're willing to craft a really good offer and get your foot in the door where you're not necessarily going to charge a lot of money up front, but you're GonNa get all these. You know smaller deals with larger companies. When you know, they can pay a lot later. You establish that relationship you take advantage of the Times right now, 'cause. They're also looking to shop for a deal. So you know, here's your chance. and. You Know Eric I know you deal with a lot of agencies in your agency accelerated permanent. Lot of them are starting up right now in trying to grow. What are you seeing? Are People doing well right now or they struggling right now and mentioned that there's always people spending money, but what of the results people are getting right now? Okay, so that's what I was amazed all these people. People that are willing to pay for the agency accelerator program right now looking. They're looking to grow because our businesses are thriving, so we had this one individual. He's based in the UK and they focused on smaller businesses side five clients last week. They just make a couple of tweaks. Another growing faster and then there's people that are looking to to that are looking to make a change in. In their business, because one person was focused on hospitality, and that's been totally decimated, but he's changing his business model right now and all of a sudden he's. He's getting more clients so I would say the people that were working with right now is it's maybe not the best apples is because these are people that are doing well. That are investing in this. So that's the caveat I say but. But they are looking to be aggressive, and they are looking to grow, and they do see a lot of people reaching out to them for different various services that that they have I. Think again. Going back to the point is during a downturn right now. I think it's a perfect time to start a business. It's a perfect time to learn and make mistakes where it's not going to be. A big issue. If you make these mistakes, put it that way so. Now for the people because they're probably are people that you've seen. I don't know as many agencies as you, but you've probably seen. People also drop in revenue due to Kobe I know we have and we lost clients lost a lot of stuff that wouldn't have happened if covid wasn't around, you know even though people are losing revenue right now. How are you seeing agency? Survive right now in. What are you seeing them due to grow right now this environment. Yeah, so they're changing up their offering, so for example anybody that has an events type of agency. They've switched over the virtual, and it's not the same original revenue that they had before because live events. You make a lot more because they cost a lot more, but at least they can recover some revenue and name of the game with businesses to survive. They need to survive and need to be able to hold through this and you know they'll be good to go other people I can tell you some are. Are pivoting into product services like a lower tier. Maybe it's not the original pricing been finding a lot of people are actually taking them up on it, so I think this really applies for business across the board I. Think if you are adaptable and you can make changes quickly. You don't just sit there I think you're going to be fine at the end of the day, but if you complain about it and you blame people I near. You're out there. Doing stupid things than you're GONNA be in trouble. And then, if you yourself were to credit agency right now, and you didn't have your brand your traffic. What would you do to get going and generate your first client if not your first three clients? Yeah. I mean I've done this before us. I'll go right back to that in a second, but I do want to say to everyone. There's a tool out there called startup runway dot io, so depending on what size your at right now if you have a couple employs a couple contractors I. I do think it's really important freedom map out a three scenarios, so if you are able to remain flat suit money revenue drops, or if you dropped twenty five percent, and if you draw fifty percent, it's GonNa. Show you how many months of runway you have left, and that runway is basically going to guide you and that's going to help. Spur you tack Shen or spirit you into action so to your question Neil. If I were starting out today and turn it back over to you. I know Brad. Nobody knows why I'm back in the day. When I first started, I was worthy attention was so I knew a lot of people were hanging on on asking Seo. Questions I think to saturated now, but now the question have to ask yourself is where all these people hanging out now. If I know my target market is hanging out on link, okay, can I make link did reach out to these people Lincoln. If they're hanging out on, you know in other areas like facebook groups. That I'M GONNA go over there, so I'm going to. To Go to where the attention is, I am going to be posting content at the same time. What happens is even right now with Lincoln. When people engage with me, I look at all the titles that engaged with me, and sometimes my team has access Wellington dill. Look at the titles as well and they'll be okay. This guy looks I might want to work with. I'm going to add him and I'm going to engage with him, and then that way you end up building relationship, and that's a really good way to build your client list so. Go any final words will turn over to you. What would you do I? Would go pick a niche I would then go and go to crunch base with for all the funded companies within the niche had a breakdown everything that they're doing wrong and tell them how they can fix it and breakdown step-by-step in hopes that some of them hire me because they could just in theory, they're venture funded. They needed to get results faster. So why wouldn't they pay me?

A short usually high pitched sound as from a horn or an electronic device that serves as a signal or warning next is beeper all you young kids today. Probably don't know to beeper is its a noun from nineteen seventy and they synonym is pager. Well does that help not particularly unless we go to the word the word pager. But we're not GONNA do that today but specifically one that beeps oh a specifically a pager that beeps next. We have the word beer. Many people's favourite word ever probably maybe it is a noun from before the twelfth century. It is an old word number one. An alcoholic beverage usually made from malted cereal grain as barley flavoured with hops any brewed by slow fermentation. I'm not a big beer fan. I like the sweeter things as I think mentioned before but I especially don't like hops. It's the bitterness is the thing that does not sit well with my taste. Buds and my brain number two a carbonated non alcoholic or a fermented slightly alcoholic beverage with flavoring from roots or other plant parts as in Beer. No Birch Beer. I mixed up the words and then I think related to that would be root beer which I love. Because it's sweet. Now we have number three fermented mash and number four a drink of beer so this is middle. English from the word bear or beer with only one e from the old English. Be Your which is b. e. r. and it is akin to the old. High German Beer B. I. O. R. Which means beer next is a fun one beer and skittles. It is three separate words just like it sounds Noun from eighteen fifty-five a situation agreeable ease as in won't be all beer and skittles. It does not tell me but I really really really want to look at the etymology of this because beer and skittles don't typically go together in my brain so I want to know why that happened. How did this become a thing a phrase beer and skittles but I might have to start using that next? Is Beer belly? Two Words Noun from eighteen twenty nine we have the synonym pot belly and then beer bellied with a hyphen. Is An adjective? Next is beer goggles. Two words now from nineteen eighty-seven the effects of alcohol thought of metaphorically as a pair of goggles that alter a person's perceptions especially by making other others appear more attractive than they actually are. I think many many people have fun fun stories of having beer goggles. And not being fully aware of what's going on next is beer pong noun from nineteen seventy-two a game in which a set of beer containing cups is placed at two ends of a table and in which a player scores by bouncing or tossing a ping pong ball into an opponent's cup from which the opponent then has to drink a beer. I love that. There is a very standard sterile definition of beer pong which is all about just getting drunk wasted in a very fun way. I I mentioned. I'm not a beer fan but I played beer pong. I was willing to drink a little bit. Just because I love games I'd Love Ping Pong and the idea of just trying to throw a ping pong ball into a cup is just a fun challenge And so I have played that once or twice and I thought I had something else but I don't know I also think it's funny that this has become such a normal thing not only. Is it in the dictionary? But there's there are APPA games for beer pong and it's it's just become a very big thing around America and probably the world too. It's not this thing that only college kids play all right next. We have beer e adjective from seventeen sixty four and. I just think it's funny that there are extra forms beer and Berry Est. That beer is beer beer even though that beer is pretty berry but that beer over there. It's the bureau August number one affected or caused by beer as in berry voices number two smelling or tasting of beer as in Berry Tavern. Next we have bee's knees B. E. Apostrophe S. second word knees Noun from one thousand nine hundred eighty one a highly admired person or thing and a synonym is. Cat's meow something that. Is You know if you if you were not using those phrases back in the day or if you're not familiar with them having that synonym isn't really going to help you. But that's what they are a highly admired person or thing and last for this episode and this might know it does not go onto the next page. It is be sting's B. E. S. T. I N. G. S. and it looks like it could also be spelled with a b a okay. This is a noun from before the twelfth century and it says the colostrum especially of a cow. So it's not be sting's it's bee stings interesting and this is reminded me of the we came across this word the one with the BA spelling. And I said Oh it looks and sounds like be stings. But it's not but then I said it was And I can't find it that's okay. The etymology says this is from bee sting. B. E. S. t. y. n. g. e. from old English by Sting B. Y. And then the word sting from be oast which means beatings akin to the old high German. Be oast which is bee stings. What is the colostrum of cow or especially of a cow? I don't know we'll get to that in the seas so my favorite word from this episode has got to be beer and skittles. Which again is a situation of agreeable es thank you very much for listening Maybe I should tell you another podcast. I'm listening to just because I like giving them more exposure if it's something that people haven't heard and I don't remember where I left off so I'm going to just say star talk radio with Neil degrasse Tyson. Go listen go learn something. This has been Spencer dispensing information into your brain. Thank you and goodbye..

"It goes back to the fact that Wellington is not a star culture. So that goes back to who we hire. If someone needs to be a star, they're not going to be a good fit here. So I think that's number one that we have a law. Of people who are humble in love investing. And we want to continue to create a culture were a new person is twenty five years old can challenge. Someone who's been here for thirty to forty years. And that's something we strive toward. So we don't have a star culture. That's probably number one number two again. It's back to the partnership economics. And how the profits are allocated by the managing partners in that trust that will be very fair in that process. I think also reduces that conflict. How in the world you spend your day because I'm thinking, okay. There's a month of year that's going to go to figuring compensation. There's another three months, you're that might be interviewing people maybe a little bit less these days and you're managing overseeing team managing substantial amount of assets. And I imagine as one of the three managing partners. Also, all kinds of firm issues that come up. So what do you do with the twenty nine hours of your day that you're working so first of all being Amanda partner and being a portfolio manager? Requires a lot of organizational skills. So that's one of the skills. I have is that I guess one of my super skills is being very organized. The other thing about being an investor and being imagined partner is that I have very low turnover. So my turnover in my portfolios tends to be fifteen to thirty percent. So I'm not trading every day, and that's been very consistent throughout my career. So what I need to do for my clients on the healthcare side is making sure that I am reading a lot. I have dedicated times or I'm reading and thinking and putting mosaics together and working with the team rely heavily on the healthcare team. We have a number of people who are coming up the curve and taking on more responsibility. So that's a critical part of my job. And I would say seventy five percent of my job is healthcare. And twenty five percent is being a managing partner firm levels firm issues. But like you said it different times of the year. There's very little managing partner things that I have to do in. In times of the year. There's more and so you have to be disciplined and organized. And you know, I'm going to be working a lot over the next couple of months, and that's okay. That's okay. So you have to make sure you're still doing your day job. And in the thing about it is I love both parts of the job. So it makes it easy to do. Both willington for a long time has managed active assets under the vanguard brand. How do you think about the active passive debate? If you listen to vanguard, and what their philosophy is there, not a passive company. Their philosophy is to be a low cost both on the active side and the passive side. And there's a place for both passive, Anna place for active. I think there's a place for active if you can generate alpha, so when we think about Wellington like it's much more competitive, we need to be able to over an investment cycle deliver alpha for client. So that's how I think about it for us. Like, how can we be successful as being an active manager and not in the passive world one? How can we.
