Regenerative Agriculture: Kelsey Scott Is a 125th-Generation Land Steward
"As farmers grapple with climate change many are turning to regenerative agriculture practices these techniques help store carbon in the soil and make the land more resilient to extreme weather.

"Com. I encourage everyone to read it. And just open your mind and realize that it's not all black and white that there are a lot of Shades of gray and that we need to. We need to learn how to talk to one another as human beings and stop with the narratives in the war of narratives. Yossi klein halevi. Thank you so much. This has been really eye-opening for me and it just just a pleasure to listen to you speak. Thank you so much enjoyed engaging with you. Thanks for the opportunity there. You go so a calm. Conversation with yossi klein halevi. We recorded that. On friday airing view today and as i said i didn't edit the conversation at all that's how it unfolded and if nothing else i hope it just spurs more questions or makes you say you know what i'd like to connect personally with people that are supposed supposed you know. I hate to use the word enemies but not necessarily my friends in ideology. I know some of us try it over here. With republicans doesn't always work so well but he's trying something very different. I mean you heard the situation too. So he lives in east jerusalem which is You know an area that is in question because some of the plans for two state solution call for east jerusalem to be part of palestine borders on the west bank. he's right. He said he concede that settlement. Where the israelis were coming into the neighborhood where palestinians lived for in some cases generations to try to put down more settlements any victim. That's what started this latest round of war. The latest rockets going back and forth and he even said look. You know. i'm not going to place all the blame. But i think you know for the most part. Israel's got this one in terms of their fault here But the the you know we're not talking about something like the united states that what's two hundred and forty five years old this week. We're talking about a the oldest most ancient part of the world where these peoples have been living for centuries for millennia and there is no right no wrong. Somebody in the chat room kept saying. Yeah but why are the juice trying to steal the land from gaza and to you all i say go back and listen like really. Listen to the conversation and maybe read up on history. Because i'll tell you. I'm not the most knowledgeable historian out there but even i know you can't say no. It's the jews. No it's the palestinians they were all there for thousands of years and what my guest was saying. Is we all have a right to be here so again. I didn't expect that this conversation would give us any answers But maybe open our minds a little more because what. He said that that really rang. True for me. Is it blows my mind. And i'm paraphrasing. Obviously that's these are my words not his that the american progressive community is so quick to defend hamas. Well or is he puts commas. That's how they say they're come. Us is not the palestinian people. They're the ones who've taken over that territory and you know what come off may roll gaza but it doesn't rule the west bank and that's what he was saying was his worry that if all of a sudden a two state solution comes in and the west bank those lands are given back to the palestinians does hamas come in and take over and those are the things we don't know but but to just give them free rein it's again it's not black or white there are all these different shades of gray and You know the love his the the thing that attracted me to his book. That made me wanna talk to this man. What's the premise of this book. He wrote letters to my palestinian neighbor. Who i don't know so. I'm looking at the website. It's letters to my neighbor dot com. And there's a section of reader responses and I'm just going to pick one at random and just know that they're not all as open minded and complementary so some here. Here's one from a right from somebody in morocco a response from a ube from morocco and it's Hold on caller. I'll get you in a second this letter and it's too long. I'm not gonna read the whole thing but it starts off by saying mr yossi klein alavi. I send you my warmest greetings at the very outset of my letter. I would like to express my deep appreciation gratefulness for the bravery and mental effort. It must've taken you to write each and every line of your letters. Your work is not only valuable. In the context it seeks to impart but also by virtue of the accuracy and honesty of its writing and it goes on here as a young person. The israeli palestinian conflict only initially caught my attention when the second intifada erupted the news of the victims of both sides. Replete with heartbreaking. Pictures were circulated everywhere during these times. I could never understand what exactly each side was fighting to achieve all possible. Motive struck me as meaningless or unsubstantiated throughout the years i not only sought to avoid taking a position on such matters but rather refused to try to understand what was going on in the first place. These events never meant anything to me. I only hope to never see those heartbreaking pictures again and it goes on..

"Me. Hope is is what's happening in the wider region. We used to say in israel that peace will happen from within outward and by by that we meant that first piece has to happen with the palestinians which is the inner core of the conflict and then israel will make peace with the arab world. Now we are speaking about peace happening from without inward i. Israel is finding its place in the wider region and then hopefully with our new arab allies will be able to start figuring out the security and economic components of of of of a of a successful palestinian state. And i think we can only achieve that if we work together with the gulf states with saudi arabia with egypt jordan and this is really flipping on its head. The old notion of how peace is going to happen and what we've seen. Is that for all kinds of reasons. Peace between israelis and palestinians is too difficult at this moment to achieve but we are seeing tremendous progress happening in the region. And that gives me a great deal of hope and I'm i'm in touch regularly with with people all over the region and and so that's something that i think. I can contribute long-term if only to help israelis feel less under siege and and more willing to take a chance on a palestinian state misses. Something also that's very important for For outsiders to understand about the israeli mindset which is what israelis feel unfairly condemned when we feel demonize when all the blame is placed on us. Even when we're trying to defend ourselves against a terrorist dictatorship then the israeli responses to turn even more rightward right to to to to to raise the walls to to circle the wagons. And that's a natural response. And it's especially the case in the jewish psyche for for historical reasons the way in which to get israelis to be receptive to the possibility of a two-state solution is not to boycott us. It's to embrace us. It's to it's to help. Israelis feel part of the middle east and then to challenges rates and. That's what i'm trying to do in this book and trying to challenge palestinians to to face the fact that the israelis are not an alien white colonialists invasion but an indigenous people a majority of whom come from jewish communities that never left the middle east that went from one part of the middle east and came and came to israel. We came from yemen and iraq and iran and morocco and egypt and and as well as poland and russia and my case america rank come from all over the world but a majority of the israeli population comes from families that either fled or were expelled from our countries from ancient jewish communities. So what i'm challenging. The palestinian reader of this book is to come to terms with the fact that we are not some alien transplant. But a rian digitized people and what. I'm challenging the israeli reader of this book is what's our vision of the future. Do we really see the status quo as sustainable another generation or two. What what what do we need to do to offer our palestinian neighbors. Some hope we are the stronger side here and even though we've been we've been under siege in the middle east. We've been alone in the middle east. We are still the stronger party toward the palestinians. so what's our responsibility here. And so what. I what i'm really trying to do is is make everyone a little bit uncomfortable and come to terms with the complexity of the conflict. I'm i it's so important to what you're doing this conversation that you're you've opened and having Is so important because we need to talk and we need to get the government out of the equation and let us talk human being to human being. I got one more question for you. That is just something that i a- curiosity for me. Gaza yes is bordered by israel on one side but it also has a border with with egypt and egypt maintains the blockade egypt doesn't let a palestinians flow in and out or goods and services. Right am i. Am i wrong on that absolutely but you see when you when you mentioned that inconvenient fact it complicates the narrative and a dozen serve the anti-israel purpose right and so that's ignored and and the question here is. Why does egypt as well as israel feel the need to to be blockading gaza. Be and it's not to punish the palestinians it's the keep iranian weapons out of the hands of kamaz. Wow now somehow that gets totally lost and this becomes some some fantasy play of of of evil of an evil. Israel gratuitously for no reason trying to suppress the palestinians. That's not what's happening here. And i believe we have to find a different way. This is a dead end we need. We need to start thinking of new solutions. But let's not simplistically judge one side or the other okay and i don't hold all respond palestinians responsible for cobas and And let's let's start humanizing this conversation. I believe you've you've started that. Let's continue it again. The book is a letters to my palestinian neighbor by yossi klein. Halevi again. you can buy it. You can get it on the kindle. You can get it in in now. Paperback form with with some of the letters that you've received back from people and you mentioned all these other countries where jews have settled from iran and iraq and yemen and jordan and on and on. And you've gotten letters from people. In all of those countries. Many of them are represented on the website. Letters to my neighbor dot.

"Yeah. that's very bad. News for riders. i. I'm sure it is for those who really want to take a look at it and it says this is temporary. I don't know why they lowered it. But i i took advantage of that. There's also a website letters to my neighbor dot com. Where you tell the story you share some you have the arabic download page you have And some of the letters and a way for readers to respond so it's english and arabic and english and arabic because the goal is to get this out to your arab neighbors so now all right yossi klein hell levy. I read some of the book. I read some of the responses. And they're all very heartfelt. Some are you know you don't know what you're talking about. This is my history. And here's where stands but others are encouraged by you wanting to open a dialogue. Now i also saw an interview with you in which you were asked so then why is it published in english. And why is it released here in the united states and you said something about reaching out to maybe young american jews. Well you know what. I'm not so young but i am. I am an american jew. Whose very conflicted over this and it hurts my heart. When i see the bombing going on and i i see the death and destruction and and i hate what israel is doing and i hate what hamas doing but i realized that the palestinians the people who are now living on gaza and in the west bank of the settlements are encroaching on them every day that their rights are being violated. And so i wanna know your story. I would like to know what i can tell to critics to. People who say israel is the evil empire. Why why israel should exist. Why why it deserves to exist in. Why the jews have a homeland there. So can you give us. I mean it's a big undertaking but can you give us the reader's digest version right. Well my my Twitter version of an answer is israel deserves to exist because it does exist and israel should not be the only country in the world that has to continually prove its right to exist that to me is a is a double standard that has very disturbing echoes in jewish history. Jews are used to being treated to a double standard and now the jewish state is being subjected to jewish to a double standard. And so let's there tends to be a conflation between opposition to certain israeli policies with with israel's right to exist and there's no other country in the world that i can think of that is subjected to the same treatment as israelis is where where we so easily go from condemning policies of that government to questioning whether the country itself has a right to exist. Now that's something that is in israeli. An i as as a jew will not will not debate. I will not defend my right to exist. The argument about whether israel should have come into existence or not with the legitimate debate up until may fourteenth nineteen forty eight. Which was the day that israel was declared a state. The moment israel came into existence it. It's legitimacy was based on the fact that it had joined the family of nations now the fact that israel defended itself from an invasion by seven our countries Who who attacked israel the day that it was born trying to destroy it the fact that israel has been an ongoing war to defend its legitimacy from the day of its existence. I has complicated our reality i. It has forced us into a position To to some some some of our policies are policies that i see as legitimate expressions of self defense others like expanding settlements I considered to be counterproductive up. But but this. This is a conflict that requires nuance. It requires a little bit of care on both sides To try to really understand what we're dealing with here and instead what we have our our strident slogans on that israel as apartheid. Israel is colonialism as well as ethnic cleansing you know. I live in a building. An i'm speaking to you now. From from my apartment in a building which is almost fifty percent arab-israeli fifty percent jewish israelis. When i step out of my home. I enter into an a hebrew arabic environment. This has nothing to do with apartheid now. This conflict is about many things and there's lots of justice in this conflict. There's lots of injustice that this existential conflict has generated but it is not apartheid. It is not ethnic cleansing. I the simplistic slogans. That are used to undermine. Israel's legitimacy are are just outrageous and it and it only makes peace all the more elusive because what it does is send a message to israelis that we are never going to be heard. We're going to be demonized. Were evil as you put it the evil and fire. Well you don't make peace with an apartheid racist colonialists state. You destroy it. That's what happened to rhodesia. That's what happened to south africa on nazi germany. Well israel dots. That certainly not the israel that i live in it is the fantasy israel of Of anti but it has very little resemblance to the real country that i live in the country that i live in is very complicated. And there's lots going on here that i want to see change but that's very different than saying that. This country has no right to exist that that that the goal is not to states but one big state in which jews are going to be reduced to a minority status again. We're not going back there. The jewish people smack going back to minority status in this country and and so the anti-zionist fantasy narratives of this conflict only only exacerbates tensions. Only forces israelis more deeply into a siege mentality. And you can't make peace from that place right and so now the question. The big question that seems to be changing over the years is how do we fix it. And the general consensus. I think among most people as a two state solution. You've said that's the only thing that will work but it won't work probably misquoting you. What did you mean by that or something similar to that. Well what. I what. I what i tried to say was that i dread a two state solution because i i. Frankly don't trust the palestinian leadership. I see what happened in gaza when israel withdrew from gaza. We got thousands of rockets on on An israeli towns along the border. And i'm very worried as are most israelis about what would happen if we withdrew from the west bank. Your listeners can see it. But i'm pointing now across the way to to the west bank. It's literally on the next hill. Now if we withdraw and a palestinian state is created on the next hill will that be a peaceful state ready to accept the legitimacy of israel in in these borders or will turn into another gaza will hamas takeover. So i'm very worried about a two state solution. Israel is a very small place you know. It's very hard for americans to imagine this but we live with an intimate geography. If we withdraw from the west bank israel will be eight miles wide. Wow eight nine. Zero point eight miles wide and so there really is a There's a deep fear that many of us have here. Most israelis have for toward a palestinian state. The only thing that i fear more than a two states situation is the absence of a two state solution. Because if we don't have a palestinian state eventually.

"You can purchase a painting either. Have a custom pet portrait done or one of my other paintings so many ways you can support the show and i hope you do but bottom line is i hope you'll listen today so after that program back in may with norman finkelstein i was i you know it. It hurt it hurt. It hurt both listening to what this man was saying because there was no daylight there in his mind to me. Anyway it seemed like you know a palestinians hamas good and. I'm sorry things aren't that black and white. They just are not. There are many different shades. And i hate to use the term shades of gray anymore after that awful series of books came out. But you know what i'm saying. Nothing is black and white. Nothing is so cut and dry. So i i went in search of somebody i could talk to. Who might be able to shed a more balanced light on. What's happening and sure enough. I came across an article about a book and the book is called letters to my palestinian neighbor. And it's written by manion. Yossi klein hell levy and the more i read about this man. The more impressed. I became. And i read some of the letters and some of the letters he got back and i thought this is somebody i want to talk to and i reached out to him. He lives in in israel and a few days. After i sent my first email. He responded very positively and he said. I'd love to know more about you. Who are you. what's your story. And so we had a little back and forth via email and he said i would love to do your show except he was traveling so we set a date and actually we recorded this on friday. And i'm telling you that because I want you to know that. Yes this is on tape. But i didn't edit one word from the moment it begins until the moment it ends. It was taped live and it airs in that manner And i want you to hear what he has to say. Because hopefully you'll learn as i did about the fact that you know you can't generalize life Want one analogy. I made in their rightly or wrongly. Was that for the four years. Trump was an office. I shudder to think that people around the world were considering all americans as as him that he spoke for all of us and we know he did not write as embarrassed as i was of him. I know that there are israelis. Who felt that. Way about netanyahu so the question is now that he's gone. Are the prospects going to be any better. There's a lot of a lot of stuff to get into so let's not wait any longer. I'm there'll be a few minutes on the other side. It goes fairly long. But i hope you'll be interested by it has high was an m. and so i'm going to share this with you and then on the other side should you care to weigh in. Perhaps you know you have a comment to make i will. If we've got time. Open the phone lines all right. But i'm not gonna wait any longer. Let's get right to it Through the magic of digital audio here we go yossi klein. Halevi is an american born israeli author and journalist who caught my attention last month when we were talking about the the problems over between israel and palestine and i sort of stepped in it a bit and i went searching for answers and i came across some writings about this book letters to my palestinian neighbor written by our guest yosi. Thank you so much for joining us. Today i'm really honored up on nicole delighted to be with you. Thanks for having now so you are. You're born in the united states. You're from brooklyn and in your twenties decided to move to israel because you were going home. It was without the reason behind the move very much so i it's not that i felt alienated from american home. I i love america. I was always deeply grateful for for everything that america gave to me. But i grew up with his deep sense of awareness that i was privileged to be living at a time when the jewish people was recreating itself in its in its ancient home and this is this was a dream that jews it carried for two thousand years of exile and it was fulfilled. Just before i was born i was i. I was part of the first generation that was born into the reality of a jewish state. And so i. I felt this sense of privilege and responsibility and i mean privilege. Not in the way. It's used today politically. In the discourse i mean in the old fashioned sense of i truly was privileged to be a part of jewish history at this moment when when the greatest dream of the jewish people was being fulfilled and what happened in israel was so important to me. Even as i was growing up in america i i followed the news closely and and i i felt that israel didn't only belong to jews who had nowhere else to run. Israel was not only a refuge. Israel belonged in some sense to the whole jewish people and even though i was privileged to be born in america and to live in in the most successful and safe and prosperous jewish diaspora in our history My my heart was there from from the very beginning. And and so eventually. I dragged my body over to the middle east and i've been living there for forty years so so this is your home. You are like. I said at the beginning an american born israeli now and you find yourself in the middle of well this ongoing conflict. It came to four last month because Hostilities grew once again between palestinians in gaza and the israeli government. And the i'll say right up front. There's no easy solution to this. If there were we wouldn't be in this boat You've obviously been living with this among this for all these years and you are journalist and an author. You right op-eds you. You're involved in in in this discussion and a few years back. You came out with a book that we're talking about now letters to my palestinian neighbor. Can you explain what the book is and why you decided to write. This book is is a series of ten extended letters to an anonymous palestinian neighbor literally on the next hill. From where unsticking to you. Now i live in a neighborhood in.

Israel Marks Memorial Day
"It's almost trite at this point to talk. About how little. American memorial day an american independence day mean to. I don't want to say to every american. That's certainly not true. But too many maybe most americans so for our listeners who fall into that camp and you haven't had a chance to experience yamoussoukro and johann smooth in israel. Can you paint a picture for us of what those two days are like. So one of the things that i learned when i moved to israel in the early nineteen eighties was that the sadness day on the israeli calendar was actually not your show on holocaust memorial day. It was almost koran. And y'all mush law has great solemnity but y'all must be car on it's an open an ongoing wounds and think of it this way. I'm show we mourn the consequences of powerlessness and on yellow show. We mourn the consequences of our re empowerment and the price that we've paid for national software and y'all mostly clear on is a collective day of mourning. Everyone knows someone. Everyone knows a family. Everyone knows a kid who didn't come back and everyone has stories that were all cowry. This is a nation of soldiers. It's a nation of parents of soldiers and the ultimate israeli.

The Hitler Haggadah with Jonnie Schnytzer
"Joined today by johnny schnitzer to talk about the hitler. Haga a nineteen forty-three judeo arabic haggadah. Which tells the story of the holocaust the second world war and the allied landing in north africa through the passover seder. Johnny schnitzer is a phd candidate at bar. Ilan university with a focus on medieval kabbalah. His dissertation is focused on the fourteenth century. Kabul list rabbi. Joseph ben shallow ashkenazi and johnny is also preparing a critical edition of ashkenazis. Commentary on sefer itsy raw. Johnny also edited an english edition of the etc. Which we're going to be talking about today. The hitler etc is such a fascinating text in many ways even just the title is jarring. And you might think how can you use. Hitler's name in the title of this traditional jewish text and it draws you in to a tremendous piece of moroccan jewish history that reworked the traditional passover story to tell us about the experience of north african jews in the holocaust. I hope you enjoyed our conversation. Where we're going to dive into this text and think about how it can broaden our understanding of the holocaust to include the middle east and north africa in that story and also where we think through the important relationship between jewish roots and holidays with history and historical memory. Thanks for tuning in high johnny. Welcome to the podcast. Thanks so much for joining us to talk about your book that you added. Thank you for inviting me. Lovely to be here. Absolute think this is such a fascinating text. Can you maybe tell us a little bit about it in other words like what is it that makes this different from all other hug adults. I think there are sort of two bombs that this text drops upon any re- debt guest that sort of feast there is on the hit laga and the first one of course is the title and this is what got me interested in this from the outset and that is this sort of sporadic this who has the chutzpah to do this at taking a jewish texts calling it the hit laga. That's the sort of bomb number one. Because you're not even sure what this is about. Who wrote this. But you know one thing you know that the author who is anonymous and we'll touch upon them in a moment takes to keywords. That every juneau's today every jew does not need to google almost haggadah writer passover passover eve where we read the haggadah we all come and we eat together and he takes haggadah and he connects to the other. Keyword that we all know about for a very separate horrific connotation. That's hitler and he puts it together. The first bomb is who has the chutzpah to perpetrate a text. And give it the title. Hit laga taking one of the most sacred texts and connecting it to one of the biggest mom's area if you like in jewish history and then you open the text and you realize that author has done something absolutely fascinating he is done with. The sages have asked us to do generation after generation and that is to see ourselves as if we left egypt red. It's to reenact. Redemptions to reenact. God saving the jewish people taking us out. And what does he do. He takes the structure of the storytelling bit of the haggadah. Right on passover. Eve we have the ceremony we have the blessings and then we reached the mortgage section the mugged section to section where we meant to mcgee. We meant to tell the story. That's what is about right. We tell story we tell the story of redemption. This also explains why passovers become right. This trend of everyone bringing own hug dot. Everyone bringing their own stories. Because it's all about bringing together different pieces of the puzzle. Creating this beautifully rich mosaic. So he takes the traditional structure of the haggadah which tells us about how we were taken out of egypt and it tells us about these different characters. Rabbinic figures leaving two thousand years ago. The told us to do this and told us to do that. And he takes out the content and fills it with a new content whereby he tells the story of the holocaust of world war two of the allied victory of the ex pows over nazi germany. And hitler and mussolini's italy he tells us the story of his generation rights yossi who has something to tell us in the traditional said. There's something about how. How would you meant to do something. All of a sudden becomes the speech of the dictator iosif stalin when we told them the haggadah that i god and not an angel. Not anyone else is going to take you. The jewish people out of egypt suddenly becomes. I shall the goal. I not level not the right none of none of the other vichy high commanding general's. I shall the goal which already tells us right. This is what's fascinating in the hitler etc and this is the second bomb if the first bomb is the title. We still don't know what it's about. The second bomb is when you discover that this was written by an anonymous jew living in robots morocco probably towards the end of nineteen forty-three as a result possibly inspired by operation torch. The allied operation led by the us on the shores of casablanca and algiers. And everything changes all of a sudden this jew living in morocco. Who's lived under a regime whether anti jewish laws jews around him have lost their jobs. Jews around you can't get a jewish education you become by night a second-grade citizen and so out author. It almost seems as if he's taking a text which it's time to write it when we don't yet know the ending. He doesn't yet know about the horrific six million who are being murdered. He doesn't know about concentration camps in poland. But he knows he wants to do something horrific any also is living in a time where his life has changed for some years and as a result of the allied victory he suddenly possibly is inspired and sees. I get the exodus. The story i meant to be telling i meant to take the passover haggadah until the story that i see and that's how the allies beat the excess power. And how in fact you know retelling the story of exodus mine new-fangled version. I think that the text itself is amazing in the ways in which it on. The one hand utilizes the story of passover very explicitly very specifically in when he talks. About how hitler. Enslaved the jews but also like you mentioned the way in which some of the characteristic aspects of the traditional aspects are transfigured and transformed new. Whether we're talking about the parable of the four sons the for children or the different rabbis plagues. What are some of the really interesting things that are happening in this text that really are utilizing the passover story itself and also the the characteristic aspects of the passover seder that people who read attritional seder would be familiar with but they give it new meaning in this context. If we take right this this idea of the four sons four daughters any jewish figure that we look at it and we want to understand. What is it the sort of a heart of their teachings you know. One of the tricks is to see if they wrote a commentary on the haggadah. What do they do with these. Four boys of for doors. What do they symbolize. And in the case of the hit da it takes us back in time to a sort of moroccan viewpoint of the the north african campaign. And so who is the wise son now. You know it's going to be an allied power. But you're not sure that england or is it america and you'll told the the wise son is england right. The royal air force acts cleverly. He's clearly impressed he he is probably the razzie stance radio. He knows about the bombings. He knows about montgomery and then we move onto the russia. The russia we know can only be one person. That's clearly hitler. Hitler the evil one. He knows that he's a know he. He's torturing the jewish people and yet it's interesting that if you read through the at that we're not quite sure what's going on in europe right off a thinks that there is a concentration camp in berlin so we're not yet show what's going on in the world and our author doesn't yet. Nobody knows that he clearly is evil that he's plotting against the jews there wearing yellow badges which also is interesting. Because we're not sure. If he's referring to the yellow badges of jews in europe or the yellow badges of jews in certain places in north africa and then who is the tam. The time is interesting. Because tom can both mean in hebrew complete simpleton the thomas america and then shane no. You're dillashaw and who doesn't know how to ask questions. The classic version says the fourth son is the son who doesn't know how to ask questions. The newfangled version is and mussalini. Who isn't with the avowed woods and this is very interesting because when i was speaking to holocaust survivors. Oh you know this. Sort of all degeneration and i spoke to people from algeria from tunisia morocco across the board there was a nickname from cellini mar. He was the donkey he was the s. This resonates with this passage whims lead author decides to change it. And say it's not. He doesn't ask question it's that we don't even wanna talk about

"If you are to your three-tier for whatever your dip into supply chain. The only thing that you can do is make sure that you listen to the final consumer because that's the only signal signal is being distorted through the supply chain. But if you always keep an eye on the fan of gruesome if you for example make your tier two to three. A automotive suppliers have favorite several dealership around the country and watched him and being dutch with him. And know how much sending off the product that your parts get get into because then you see a signal even before or at the same time to the orient gets the signal. So you are not. You're not overreacting up or down. And furthermore we sold in the many cases documented on the two thousand and eight two thousand nine financial crisis when we came out of people cut down so much. Did they miss the market. When it was going up. Sheriff phil so you don't overreact or down and that's how you can did with. It's no fun but you can deal with it right and that's again happening in the pandemic and people are wondering of course. How much vaccine do they wanna make much space in hospitals that they want to create everything of course. Of course this brings me to china bit. You've talked a lot about china and you say that they've really gotten their stuff together now as far as an oak yes. I'm the person their economies are up there there. There's companies are up and running. Yes i am not of course nobody who lives in a way in the west wants leaving in china it's it's repressive ridiculous regime and they of course now jailing journalists who reported the bo one disaster in about what happened with a pandemic but through unbelievably autocratic measures the extra close transportation clothes housing development across on one point. There are seven hundred. Fifty million chinese under quarantine basically are under house house. Now what happened is it's condemning. I know i know i sent. I don't believe the chinese media at all. But we have a center in china. And i talked to these people once a week once every other week and they are now going through restaurant. They're going to movie going through salka mitch's so it's not that there. We don't know if they're vaccine is really any good or not. That was the social distancing and the absolutely and up to now the unbelievable testing than trekking tracing now. Of course you live in china. You are always tracked always face strict. Your phone is on the time. So that's makes it a lot easier to find out the minute that you are testing positive. It's very easy to find out who else you are in contact with. And and all that so finding other clusters if they exist or warning people to stay on is relatively easy and they do. They still doing right. But as far as the companies the government gave a lot of tax breaks and especially. It's really interesting. We talked about the supply. Chain the government that going on distant supply chain when the pandemic started they give a lot of fame head to second and third their company to smaller companies Because they figured bills companies are in existence danger so they infect i can do it only in china they.

He is the director of the mit center for transportation and logistics and he is the author of a new book the new abnormal reshaping business and supply chain strategy beyond covid nineteen. Thank you so much for coming on the show. I think it's just a super relevant important thing. We have to explore right now. So i really appreciate that. Oh no problem. Thank you for having me no. Yeah so just to start out. I'm want to get to the real basics. And then i'm going to get quick story on you but let's just take it from square one. How do you define supply chain supply. Chain is a series of activities that take place from the earliest form of a of a product going through from from mining or culture basic name. Matilda come from the earth to a finished product to a series of supplier transportation carriers custom brokers what have you going through the world shipping and making and shipping chain. Did it gets to a retail store. Gets the consumer and extra early all the way back to responsibly. Getting rid of it. I like that. Yeah that's that is the final stage of everything isn't it. Yep now you are. One of the foremost supply chain experts in the world. How did you get their. Gimme the three minute life story to get to where you are when what to. You know that you've gathered from all of the all of your experiences you. You're from israel. You studied engineering. Which is you know. A lot of our listeners are engineers. So i mean you can totally. You're on their level. Give me the the the real quick version okay. So i studied civil engineering addicted. Israel came to mit and There i started studying operation research which is basically applied mathematics and did a lot of work in network theory originally. I applied it to Airborne transportat- planning and translates and people transportation. But that was pretty frustrating. Because i realized that nobody was applying what they thought were brilliant ideas zone government. Nobody was using it. So i i had an opportunity. I started working with trucking companies using basically at the same of course different application but the same mathematical principle and lo and behold it saves money and they started using it which was very satisfying from there. I moved to the customers of the tracking companies to the manufacturer to the retailer to the distributors and optimizing their operations in process. I started the five companies. were successful. i've company with successful result. The bigger companies only came back to not because i actually like teaching and research. But every time you're off started accompanied stone management when victim mighty all the companies were acquired by larger companies. Love that you're just like yeah you know. I started five companies and kept going back. That's just incredible. That mean like to start one company is. You must be very organized. You must be very. I would say that the secret is a very understanding wife which after five components still being understanding that you said it's one more company or me so there was but i sort it was. Do you have children. I have two children one grandchild. Yes wow yeah. And when i i'm not joking say this about my wife because i could have ruined my relationship with and i work like an idiot. I mean we're basically twenty four seven. You know because my wife the relationship going. I could have feminine life and my children. Don't take me for the big achievement. Absolutely so you've written several books all about the supply chain all about different aspects of supply chains to books. Were on a risk minute when the resilience but one was on a structure of supply. Chain was gold cluster. Why you can places like memphis place..

Three of My Favorite Books This Year... So Far
"Hey everybody who has been awesome. So we're getting closer closer to Halloween depending when you're listening to this, which Halloween was my favorite holiday for basically my entire life. I went trick or treating until I was twenty one years old. And those who are wake with Russell weren't you WANNA admission when you were nineteen and twenty and the answer is yes and yes, I dressed up as a Mormon missionary going door to door because I already have the cost you got free candy. It was awesome. the good old days. Anyway. I'll trick or treating Halloween love everything. In fact when my kids were born I was like this is the great thing world howling was amazing before it's even more amazing now and went trick or treating every single year until about three years ago three years ago was when I bought my Batman suit if you've seen. We lost expert secrets are Philip. Prizes to give away these Batman. At ironman suits I got my own custom fitted was so cool. And I was so excited because that is going to be Batman like legit Batman and I was in front suit and I was just so excited for it and remember it was long day at the office and got home as quick as I could and just trying to give your own the kids at wrestling practice wrestling practice and come back home and I'm getting more Reagan dinner. Kept. Race. Back. Yossi. Batman student, which is, it's like an hour long project to get that suit on I'm so excited feeding the kids battery stack to the office and also doorbell rings and go the door, and it's one of Ellie's friends and friends like, Hey, l. here my yeah wh, what are you doing here? Coming to trick Ellie has like. What? I triggered truth my kids. Runs over. Oh, by data out mcnew, you canton clutch like what am I? Triggered this is my my holiday. You can take my daughter trick or treating, and it only took off their friends she was gone and The boys got calls from their friends and we're going trick or treating and they took off. And I remember I was ache I wasn't ready for. I. Don't know it's like the kids leaving home only worse. I wasn't ready for it and I remember they were all gone and it was it was Aiden Nora? Tiny. She's to at the time. And so I didn't get my Batman suit on and they go to the car and. You got your suit on everything. Put it in a car seat. My time we got in the car she passed out. She was out cold as Aden in class we drove to this neighborhood ain't got out with started trick or treating and passed out in the car, and that was like the saddest thing my wife I missed Halloween. Comes to sitting down the kids are awesome. They have friends. For, it you know what I mean like false fake you're planning your kids are going GonNa. Leave the house someday and then Austin they just leave the preparation. Anyway. So how is my favorite holiday until that year and now? Holidays Fourth of July because I spend more money fourth of July, any human, and so because of that everybody comes to me and doing that to compensate for. For Kids. Anyway. That's how I really feel. I'm just joking anyway, that's those true story. This is the fourth of July is my new favorite holiday but. I'm always with Halloween and so as how gets closer I still get excited I'm not gonNA, love the lease falling into the seasons changing and Pumpkins and candy and like just all the things. So one of our family traditions every year for Halloween go to. Albion Idaho where there's this old college campus where an early nineteen hundreds a thriving college and nineteen. Twenty or something that went out of business. So it's been vacant for like one hundred years and a couple years back these family bought it and they renovated the whole thing in turn it into one of them, the dorms interns like a bed and breakfast, and then the rest of the turned to haunted houses like there's a Zombie House Claus and he's old creepy buildings from the early nineteen hundreds and anyway it's it's insane. So we go every year this year to to our friends Rachel Peterson her husband Paul and they came with us which was really fun so anyway. On the trip down Rachel says, what are your favorite books you're right now Evanston, asked me a question about books freeze 'cause I'm like. There's so many like I'm obsessed with books I have more books than I know and I buy 'em every day tons board and read most of the books I listen to audio by the physical book too because I like having physical books in. All sorts of turmoil. I sat there like a deer in headlights thinking and and I kept thinking thinking and I realized like right now and stuff because you know it is different seasons your life there's. Always, kind of things so. Anyway, I in a season my life actually cited for. I'm preparing not really a mentally thinking about my next book. I think I told you before my next book. I bought the domain bootstrap dot com books called bootstrapped, and it's going to be the final story how he did it. Because my other books have been how to books right like how to get traffic, how to build a funnel, how to copy things like that but it's not gonna be how this is the story of it. I've been obsessed like listening to books about companies and people telling their story about how they built a company and so. I've been listening to a lot of those lately just like understand how to write that way. How to tell stories that is different is different than how I've typically done things. So for me to be able to write this book to change my skill set and this hopefully is aside lesson for everyone like lot of times when we do the thing we wanna do to like. Do. We have to learn something completely different writing. If you business before you come into our world. Oh my gosh businesses, different online they we have to change how we think of meets same way for me to write six book like I learned how to write differently. and. Understand that respect that and paying attention to him trying to learn it so. Anyway. So been listening to audio books about companies about their stories come here how people tell their stories so my three books recommend hugh today are all books about people's companies And they're good for companies number one, they're fascinating books that were to really good. Storytellers the way they tell their story was fascinating where I was like sucked into the book and I couldn't stop. In fact to these books, I've listened to twice and one. Will probably listen to again I just finished that yesterday. So that's why I hadn't listened to it twice yet. Now's referee. I don't normally read things twice because I have so many books coming into both of two of the three books have already listened to twice, which is a testament how good of a story that they actually are. So without said in no particular order, I'll give you my three. Bucks Number One book. This one I'm nervous about because. It's like the dark side of Entrepreneurship Kate. You a lot of times you hear stories about who also built a company and it's like this positive thing and there's ups and downs and trials and tribulations but for the most part, it's like the positive experience, right?
Israel and the UAE: why now and whats next?
"Is the greatest advancements toward peace between Israel and the Arab world in the last twenty, six years and it marks the third formal peace between Israel and an Arab nation. The diplomatic, Reproche Mon to nounce between Israel and the United Arab, Emirates last week is not in and of itself quite as big a deal as its orchestrators wished to claim the two countries have never been to war with each other the official hostility to Israel such as it was usually sounded pretty phoned in done for foresake when other Arab governments let fly with the fire-breathing choruses of condemnation in Israel's direction. The were generally very much in the back row of the quoi royal mumbling vaguely along hoping to be noticed. Israel and the US you have. Long. Dealt pretty, easily with each other Israeli ministers have made official visits to the Emirates. There are plentiful commercial ties between the countries Israel had already been invited to exhibit at Expo Twenty Twenty in by the intelligence services of Israel, and the have also long cooperated. The first official Israeli visited to the after the deal was announced was Yossi Cohen, director, of Masa Truly historic moment not since the Israel Jordan peace treaty was signed more than twenty years ago has so much. Progress has been made towards peace in the. Middle, East? By United Jew of America's closest and most capable partners in the region something which said could not be done. This deal is a significant step towards building a more peaceful secure and prosperous middle. East US President Donald Trump is claiming credit for brokering this agreement but suggestions by his proxies and flunkies that this is somehow worthy of the Nobel peace prize he frantically desires. somewhat optimistic granted that President Trump's predescessor barrack Obama was just given. One is a sort of housewarming present but an exchange of ambassadors between Israel and the U. A is just not a seismic recalibration comparable with the peace reached between Egypt and Israel in Nineteen, seventy, eight or Israel and Jordan in nineteen, ninety, four, I say to the people of Israel and Jordan. Now. You must make this peace real. To, turn no man's land into every man's home. To take down the barbed wire to remove the deadly minds. To help the. wounds. Of War to heal. However via the normalization of Israeli, Emirati relations may not be big deal. It may portend things which are indeed it's the fact that it isn't a big deal which may be the really big deal here. Israel's only two previous such agreements with countries as referenced above were with Egypt and Jordan neighbors against whom they fought wars. They were extraordinary responses to extraordinary circumstances. The agreement with the UI founds a diplomatic relationship which seems more or less remarkable than say, a diplomatic relationship between Denmark and Malaysia Will Senegal and Peru. It could have a domino effect. There are already suggestions that some other Arab, states including. Bahrain and Morocco a coming around to the U. I-IT's way of thinking where Israel is concerned and from there, what else might be possible Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has already spoken of hope that the direct flights which will shortly link Israel and the could be allowed to cross the skies above. Saudi Arabia. The prospect of an Israeli embassy in Riyadh might not seem exactly likely just yes. But nor does it seem any longer like a completely demented fantasy? I've Alanine Adam first of all. In our opinion this action is incorrect wrong one hundred percents. And it is a betrayal of the Palestinian. People and the will of Muslims and the will of quotes. Villas in autumn on Amazon one. Zero. Two significant shifts underpinning this realignment one is that in recent years Israel and the Arab states have discovered something they agree on Iran which regard as some combination of nuisance menace and existential threat. The other is that Israel and the Arab states have discovered something that they no longer disagree on at least old that much Palestine, which the rest of the Arab world seems less and less keen on pretending to care about a much ballyhooed component of the Israel you deal was Israel's promised to suspend its plans to annex the West. Bank. But it is difficult to believe Israel was ever entirely serious about that. Indeed it sounds in the light of the agreement exactly like the kind of mad idea you float. So you can make a big thing of agreeing not to do it as part of a subsequent diplomatic negotiation. News of the Israel. You a deal was very much not greeted by widespread dancing and celebrate tree hooting of car hoons in Gaza and Ramallah. There have been from Palestinian sources grim mutterings about betrayal by their fellow Arabs. Unfortunately, nowadays, most of the Arab is looking after their own interests at the expense of the Palestinian course. The wretched reality is that it's nothing. So sinister, it is simply that Palestine is increasingly regarded in Arab capitals as yesterday's cause and as a baffling boring headache one of the hardiest diplomatic truisms is Lord Pompton Quip that nations have no permanent friends no permanent enemies just permanent interests right now to the UAE and other Arab states which may follow. Israel seems a much more interesting ally than

What you've created, my favorite voted in video game history, but also. You might notice you. Create one of the most not-so-subtle advertising tools. That is perfect for this game. Because every time I seen pictures of it I WANNA? Play it again, and I think for a lot of people who were just sort of like on the outside, looking in a video games in general like people who aren't just totally head down on stuff all the time. They're like wait what that's! That's a video game. Where do I play I play it? They're going to get that so Yeah, that's a very very smart. If you guys it's absolutely stunning game. A cool. Photo of his crazy because we were one of the first, you know infamous second son was one of the first. At least I know of modern games that have put like a like a photo mode in in that game. It was just like this cool idea to show off all the cool particles and lighting. That game was a while known for. But it was wasn't crafted as a personality around. It was the cool photo mode, and then over time over the last few years. You have these games that out and Spiderman my favorite of version of this where they like adds the flavor of their game to its photos like tied to the personality of that gain. On, the building tops, doing like little cell fees and Doing it with a phone. That was awesome made it. You need to spiderman so when we were like. Hey, what are we gonNA do for voter mood? To? Whatever the ghost photo mode. One, it's gotta be way better than our first one because. Our, follow up one and two. It's gotta be semantically. You know connected to the game, so we're like. Well motion in Wind I. Haven't we like? Make it less about a static image. You can do that, too, but have be about moving frame that I think is so beautiful about our game kind of spun out from there. I didn't think it was odd that you give the main character, a Selfie, stick and the iphone. His drone that goes along with. Little you know little out of place, but I thought butyl. Oh God you know it's been incredible thing to play around with, and you can do what Brian said. Every time I see more of it. It's one of those things where I've been playing every night. Still in, it's like Oh, no, I need to go jump back in the middle of the day. Because like Oh. That's a great spot I never thought. I could take a photo of I've been a particularly obsessed with going to bamboo strike locations and trying to get all the great photos. I cannot have those spot often. You know like perfectly placed at an edge or something. I sort of wondering. Because obviously this was built more with like the photo mode in mind as you development went on, because it's become so much bigger, what was world creation influenced at all by the photo mode, or were there any aspects of designing this game that were influenced by it because it is more like prevately used feature these days I guess than back when second came out. You know. A little secret you know we. We always knew we'd have a photo modem. We knew that this ambitious version of like I. said a second ago better and more dramatically connected. Owning, really work on it until pretty late, so you know we were so. Dedicated to the stories in crafting the world, so when it came to the beauty of the world. That add add everything that's in the game. I would have to imagine that that had the most iterating over anything, because it's one of the first things you do before you have the whole story articulated and put into the game. Certainly don't have cut scenes. You know it's like you're laying out terrain and at that like how does the island look and then it gets into the direction the feeling Cutting, trees down growing trees, making procedural tools like the world is the by far the most iterative on thing now. There was a point where we're like. This is how we make our game. Look good clearings. Big giant swath of like in forests, you know that you can see for miles. Off using color as like landmarks again, the Golden Forest, or read flower fields, and then, and then a you know, certainly that sort of made its way into some of our features of a photo, but the the world designed stuff. took the lead on on end photo mode. Okay, now that we've created this amazing awesome place. How do we utilize the photo mode in like critical photo that will. Take advantage of how great our team at did at creating a beautiful world. I think one of my favorite things about this game is the sort of balanced that it's constantly striking Between being sort of completely serene, and then the music swells up and swords or out, and they're slashing against each other. How hard was it to sort of get that that tone down because I could see. You know I think in in lesser hands I could be a very kind of dangerous. Push and pull, but I feel like you totally nailed that and I think that that's like some people when they look at an open world game want like nonstop jam-packed activities in in your team made the decision to pull back and let things breath every now and then How did all that come together? Well you know for me. It's the first game that I was certainly a visual director on, and so I I would I you learn something about yourself with everything you create, and for me I personally learned that I don't have a natural tendency to like create incredible. Violence, I just wasn't that was uneven. Favor Games, bloodborne like as absolutely my favorite game. Guide. You're on this show. This is gonNA be worthwhile and. About it anytime. But no, seriously like. That's my favorite game, but. When we were crafting the world would I navigated towards with Joanna. Who's environment our leader? This did this amazing a blog post recently on playstation bar. was the beauty of it was taking taking a moment to breathe in, and then I realized that some of my favorite games that are not. Show the classes certainly embraced the idea of atmosphere in a sense of this and you know I donate Fox's is is resonates. Conversations resonated with him as well so then then the conversation shifted into. Okay well. We definitely have it. We have a summer game. So you know without saying anything else as you say Amer game, you know you're going to be hitting things with a four-foot razor blade so. You know violence is GonNa come so we certainly work on that stuff. allied and we wanted to be great and gritty, and the you know like you really WanNa feel like you have contact when you have contact but the other stuff doesn't come as natural, and you have to actually work on that stuff to balance it out, you really do, and so that means like the idea is about creating Haiku, which was actually named idea You know really. Or believe it was taking a moment to. Allow the beauty to take hold, and not what I think is cool about the ICU that I hope people enjoy about it is is that they're not tied till like progression like you're not. You're not like intrinsically forced to go, do it? You know there's a sense of you have to have the wonder and curiosity desire to do it. It's not like game telling you go do this to reach next level certainly, a lot of that is tied to corporation auto out to have to consider that, but it is. It is a work philosophy to try to get that balance of that contrast It takes years to get right for sure. I really enjoyed the Haiku sections actually He was like you said. It's sort of provided like this. This relaxing breeder and I did like the you were able to select different things who essentially collate them into one kind of fresh Haiku each time. Yeah I I mean I did every single side quests in every single objective in this game, but I I really enjoyed those wow awesome. The accuser, some of my favorite ones to the cinematography. You know it was at the moment to like. You know certainly we call them breathing. Moments definitely say that studio, but it was kind of a moment. Regis Art Geek out a little bit like the people who do the cameras. Mottaki, they can place it in to get the right motion and you know, and then the writers have an opportunity to like. Give you give you a couple of cool options. Just the beauty kinda comes through which is which in the end has been a very positive thing for the experience. Yeah, the balance that Brian was. Speaking to how you were sort of describing how that all came together? I could imagine. It's a very fine line between making sure it's peaceful and calm in certain areas, but. It's still engaging for the player because you could always run the risk of it. Being something that the player doesn't want to engage with, but as Brian. Saying like finding those high coups feels like this wonderful moment of solace after I have assassinated an entire Cam Mongols. And need to reflect on Jin's life, but also just the world I, it's this really great balanced that a I think as Brian was sort of saying you always get in games, but it feels so refreshing to hear. And it's a huge part of our philosophy. How we treat. Treat the game. Whether it's a Haiku great example, he could probably keep talking about, but you know the music style music how the music comes on not having things like combat while you're doing, shrine climbs or anywhere near them so that we can let those be their own experience, and so are these, are we? Everything wanted these features that are not mainline missions. Our conversation is like about how much combat how much non-combat and what is the purpose and what are the? What's the feeling for its existence like what what is the emotional goal for for these features and these are conversations? We have a lot and sometimes triple times over we try. We don't like it. We try something else. Well and for me, what's really interesting is sort of the place that all of these features and the things you go on, have sort of in the context of sucker punches past work, because it is I've been such a huge fan of both cooper franchise and infamous. Stir a year and. You know you get increasingly larger, but often more urban. City expenses that you're exploring a lot. In both of those franchises to certain extent here you're out in the wild. There are of course settlements and encampments and things like that, but there is a there's a lot of stretches where it can just be the world around you that you're exploring and I was sort of wondering on a world design level. How do you? How do you balance? Making all of these locations unique to explore as well and interesting. Even though you know a lot of can just be more, the environment's like what are the challenges that come with that? Yeah, so one of our. Our Contractors Jeff He. He talks a lot about content density, and what is the correct density and I really am really thankful that he brought that conversation up to light so much because It's such a you know Thinking about if you're currently doing something, you're going across the world and run into something. How much further would you have to ride your horse before you might find the next thing, or can you see the next thing from where you currently are? How how dense is it and I really enjoyed that conversation? Because it let us think about what's the right philosophy for for our game and it it certainly it allows us to you know if we want to in one place, you just completed something, and you should be able to generally speaking, look around and find one more thing on horizon or see the shrine trying on top of the mountain. It influence our world design alive, because when we first had the game built for the I you know I'd say maybe two years. It was a lot of forest. It was a ton of trees and it was cool, but you always were felt like you were in this like. Tunnel beautiful, but really deforestation. which does a couple things one is? It is very cool, but. It makes it really hard to know where you are without a compass or many map. Something telling you kind of giving you that extra information that your brain is just really needing. So what we did is we started opening up fields and I definitely some shadow, the classes photos out and was like fields as as reference vm. Because it just feels so epic when you're going through field, but but you know the criticism it could be that it's boring or something like that, and and really have to embrace a philosophy that it won't be boring because there's beautiful music. There's five things now that you can see what you want to do next because you're in a field, there's more clearings and it created a Great beauty in the game, but also more opportunity to engage with that density and I I. Really I think that that was one of the conversations that was ongoing throughout the project, but we landed in a really. I think unique spot for. When when when you? When your team was the helping this game, you obviously weren't anticipating a significant portion of the world's population to be stuck indoors for months on end, but At one I mean there were obviously there. Are you know a lot of sort of like entertainment? Things that have come out during quarantined. That didn't really. Fair as well due to their. SORT, of like the way they were delivered or their subject material something that, but this is a game that I really more than ever appreciated as a guy who's in a two bedroom apartment really appreciated huge open fields and. Mountains in like sprawling rivers and seas and stuff like that but I think one of my favorite things about the big open fields is that there's always something? Or there is like a lone tree. And you're just sort of naturally drawn towards it, and I found that like that sort of like beautiful use of negative space to be like so powerful. In terms of like never felt to me like there's nothing ahead of you. This is boring. It always felt to me like this. Is this is this is like a sort of triumphant use of minimalism and and charging towards something. To reveal that there's like one loan item in the distance was so much more engaging tomato like at a mini map that had a hundred time trials, but Hamas other stuff like I. Found Myself uncovering the dog on the entire map which. I was I was like basically riding around in spirals like in that movie alto like I was trying to. Five is in half the time I was on foot to. It was really wonderful game to explore so I. WanNa ask you about that the. The the sort of the way exploration on unfolds in this game is something I. Really Really Love and I think a lot of open world games are going to take note of following the wind and talking to people and following Fox's two locations rather than just you know overtly stating the player. This is where you're GonNa go, or you go to. The map in this big thing opens up. All that come together. What was the push and pull on that to sort of find the right way to keep players in the no, but without making like overwhelming them with information. Yeah I'll talk about kind of our studio kind of struggles, but I also kind of throw in my own, maybe personal philosophy, too. So I. I judge Games my favorite game, especially them really harshly by. How does it feel if you're? You're actually not doing anything on the sticks. I would if you're just sitting there. Just sitting in the world, you're standing in the world. You're on your horse in the world like is there. Is there a what's the feeling and some of my favorite games by just sitting there? There's like things that go through your mind. Like why do we? What are you anticipating? That are stuck on the story or like. Where's that next objective like you're just what's going through your mind? because. That's when you're not doing anything. That's what you're thinking of next like. You're just taking in the beauty looking around our game I hope that translates into that sense of exploration and sense of curiosity like if you do stop for a second yearly, you're not already on kind of a train of thought it is more. One of curiosity is one of like. Hey, what? What do I want to do next? Oh, there's something over there. There's something of their. Oh, I wonder band before, so they're having gone to could check it out and I. think that the more information you were to have on your screen compasses many maps. It kinda answers those questions before you even have time to ask the question. It's just like the dots right there. Let's go do the DOT. It doesn't matter what the DOT is. It's just there's thing let's go do it, and so that that to me is is a really important part of what I think. The Games, Tries to do in the world, and and certainly we did not have the wind when we started on this project at all. In fact, what the wind was which is has got this cool story I'll say quick is. on the first direction slides on the you know we did. A presentation is like one of the first presentation out the way look and feel and everything moves was was one of them like a wind. We're going to double triple quadruple down on win, and you know there's a lot of attack that has to go into that. He got Capes moving I gala hair moving. You gotta get trees and Bushes, and especially for procedurally generated now artistically procedurally generated world. That's really tough. Two years later. Something like that. That became true and you've standing I'm standing in this world and we had other elements we were helped. Augmenting are kind of navigation and get around the world and I'm just like holy crap. The wind is amazing. It actually works at that time. It always like went from East West or West. East or something I can't remember always just directional and it's just. It's really good. And then we started having conversations like how going to get more stuff off the screen to stay in the is like beautiful world more and more because it's just. It's really stunning even years ago. And a one point I had this idea like. The Wind. It sounds kind of crazy and Adrian is like our longtime worked on has been sucker punch. Long Time. They tried a little quick prototype with me. We had like fifteen people play at were removed all the you I just to hey. Can you just just try to follow it and just and it sounds crazy, but follow in if you can get to that hot spring or that on. And it worked like the first prototype fourteen out of the fifteen people were able to easily get there so cool. Yeah and I. I was like Oh. Yeah, we have to do this. Question. Like. This is something that is going to be unique to the game and then an analyzing. Say on them about the wind because I can do it all day, but is it had like the matic ties to the island in historical kind of. Poetic, Tian's to you know. The Mongols came in as typhoon sweeps them all out to see and. You know we name the sword the sky storm after that you know him being a storm, a metaphorical storm on the island for for the island, rooting for the island, and then it was like about nature, and then the animals came along, and I, you know it just felt like a bunch of like one of these critical pieces you don't know exists, and then you find it, and you're like that fifth straight there and does and then nearly. Oh, I, think we have a good. I can see the puzzle now so. Cool, it was cool journey. Having having that comes away. It all it feels so true to the world that the team has created in those moments. Because you know, I'm I'm a completion is player like if you give me a list of a thousand things to go collect if you give me, you know like an infamous. Charge to go collect I. Collect all of them, but there's something that I think does speak so much to this world and end you wanting to be invested in that. It is really by pulling everything. Out of the screen that you're looking at and just letting you look at the world you get more familiar with it, and you start to learn more about Oh. Yeah, I've taken that pass before. That leads to that pillar of honor or there's that cemetery over there as you start to. Trek across the land. It really gets you invest in the world in a way that I think just having a list or a neon sign to tell you where to go would. Deliver it in the same way. Yeah, that's great. That's so. That's the goal so I'm glad you had that experience. And I it's one of those things you know that the open world I think speaks so well to what the team really accomplish with this game, but one of the things I was curious about wasn't and I know. We talked about this a little bit, but released, but since we can. Talk to the island as whole, but what was the? I? Guess the poll the. The back and forth poll of wanting to make sure you stay true to the spirit of this real world location, and honor the history and the people that are but also create a world that at the end of the day would be fun to run around or write a horse around in as a game. Yeah and it's a great topic, and it's kind of been the the struggle for and I would say struggle in a creative sense. It's the creative. From from from once, we actually knew we were making Susha and we started doing all this research, and and you learn so much about the island. Like the fact that at that time it was likely to be like ninety five percent covered in dense forest. Which again I told you we tried. We tried very dense forest in. It's just hard to ride a fun horse through tree. Trees it's. Pretty tough. Also, it's incredibly hilly. We went there just like it's just hill after hill after mountain after Mount After Mountain, also challenging to create a interesting layouts in combat spaces in so. So, we worked with our team in Japan. We're like hey, this is how we were planning on You know being inspired by the shape of the islands. It looks very similar to the actual shape, but here's some kind of Ford as we'd like to take or game reasons you know, make the game more fun to to roam around. The landscapes in have layouts that have. Have Cool puzzle climbing challenges, or what have you were interesting missions, and and they were totally for it you know. And they gave us feedback of maybe when we went too far and then they also they know is in a fun way. They gave us feedback of win. Hey, you could go further with us, and so that was. It was a lot of ultimately. We're super inspired by history, and what happened and then the general beauty of greater. The greater nature of Japan as a whole, it's definitely hugely inspiring to us but we also make in a game and a PR and original story and a lot of things that. Have to Challenge it, but work in tandem with it, so it's it's definitely been a challenge I'm in a good way and we learn so much. And I will say the last thing I'll say on that. Is that within Joyon on the environment? Our team myself in the constitution. We talk a lot about like realism. And You know like A. Maybe painted realism, or maybe, how can we do it like a slightly stylized version of that? And and and you know this is not even if you've ever been to Seattle only did infamous. It wasn't really a stone by stone. Kind of recreation. Roads aren't lined up exactly. It's sort of like if you blur your eyes, you're like Oh. Yeah, that's definitely definitely Seattle like it rains. A lot of people drink coffee. PUNK ROCK and grunge music. It's You know the things that are there the spacing? Like the things you would expect, but it's not the like. Let's put a magnifying glass over, and let's get it like perfectly accurate and we take that same philosophy here. We want to feel like that. This is plausibly. Dass what it could feel like. That's what if we could do smell through it. That would we would try to. Feeling into music, we're going for a as a is a is a main heart. Smell will actually be unlocked on the playstation six. Thirty I. Have Rumor, we have an today since three. Hey listeners.

The the combat in this game is awesome, and that's coming from somebody who to be completely transparent. Wasn't crazy about it. At first 'cause my immediate reaction was. There's no lock on. Think what do you mean? There's no lock on like you can't. You can't have a certified again without lock on and as as I grew to. Appreciate. The sort of dynamic happenstance of a dashing between those four stances and. Fighting different types of enemies. In synchronicity while switching and switching back and forth using my sub moves and everything I was like. This is one of my favorite combat systems interview ever But what what? How did how did that decision? Come to not have have lock on? was that was at a debate internally in the studio? Because that's to me, that's one of those things that people just expect from a video game and I found myself not even thinking about it after a few hours in. I. It's definitely debate right like it's A. It was heavily debated and talked about how you know. From all corners of the CEO there was not some like. I mean because it's a it's a standard. There is a standard anytime. You go against the standard. You need to prove it out and. I'm glad we tried something different than you know. As person bloodborne like my favorite game, I like games that allow you to really kind of hone in and focus, and and control that since a control comes, comes with locking, but and you know, and certainly as a samurais sense of control is a huge fantasy so Yeah, man. We talked about it a ton Maybe when it comes to combat, I would say it's in the top three conversations that we had over the entire course of the project while. But I have to give massive. Shout out to you know. One of the studio heads. You know I've found Sucker Punch Christopher. Men he's he's behind the core design, a lot of the combat and he he works out of the code for it, and there's another Guy Ted. Who is awesome designer? And he liked those two brains man. They worked together, and they figured out a way to create something that is first of all feels like you're hitting the person when you do hit them like it's a tandem as animation, so it's not like a hit box based. It's like these. This animation links up to this one. Is I very newbie? Animation Brain. And it's not just like the slash through thing right, and so they feel like you're hitting the person it feels. A goal is a gritty feeling, but it's also incredibly fast paced at times. You know as you get like five or six people around you you can be, you could be like. Changes. In planning, and when you're going to do the smoke bomb, go around the building and do another. Jump down from the top, you know. It's just like a it. Almost like a the style of it is is better with how the walk on. That's kind of the thing that we found over time especially when she became pro at it. And locking on actually with slow down, maybe in some ways and a sense of control will be got out of it instead was things like standoffs in duels, obviously assassinating somebody having that jump on, somebody gives you that, too, but we decided to really push that those moments or mythic abilities I think are. Usually will help take out people pretty quickly. The mythic abilities are interesting because I I think i. I I'm really glad that this game never really went like supernatural despite having the Word Ghost, in the title. There's. There's other there's an alternate version of this game. Were you guys just want preserved and people are summoning dragons and stuff like that. I appreciate that a lot of the crazy stuff that you got away with felt grounded even like the fire sort is ridiculous, but there's like. Oh there's there's sort of like a scientific explanation. Yeah. And then when you start doing some really intense stuff that feels deliberately over the top like dude, get terrified and they starts crawling away like. Is Watching people just straight up running around. Disappear and stuff like that. It's crazy like this is a i. mean even when we pitches his game. This was another heavily debated. Topic is going to be fantasy based or not, and obviously nate and I felt really strongly as well as many other people that we should not make it fantasy base in like high fantasy base because. It really those first of all there's. Several of those games out there already, and they do a wonderful job and I love neo I love sector, Oh, these games are awesome and they lean on that a little bit more as their unique. You know and so. Good. It's smart of us not to do that, but the reason why we didn't do the reason we did was because we were definitely were focusing a little bit more on the Human Story certainly one of the world to feel plausibly real. And you know if you like, I'll take the example. You just threw out there like having people fall in there, but get scared. Scoot away, man if you could just like, pull out a fucking dragon every five minutes. Scares them like I feel like a real challenge to overcome like and so you have to be constrained. So that when we do pull out something that's really incredible or scary or something like that that it actually has wait to it, you know and. I one of the things I do love about our game in might be some of my favorite content, actually mythic missions because. They. A build up the idea that people were legends like they talk about people in their connection to the island. The lightning one is a great example where you know, they burn the black sand, the sands black, which always like wire, the sands black back answer black, and it just bill out as they build up this legend of people that may have come before you, which is Kinda cool because? because. You're kind of building your own legend. To maybe one day, people talk about mythic stories of the ghost You know that humans can do maybe slightly crazy incredible in your living, example of that and people tell tall tales. I think that's cool. I love win. Jin would go around to the stories and people would be like. There's ghosts in the woods and he's like. No, there's not. Watching watching the people run away after a battle, though my favorite things in the game because it's it teeters on like on on like. Comedy, you would find in like vintage Kung Fu movies where somebody would come and kick. A bunch of Bass and one guy would be like away. Runaway ended every single time was I would let him run like maybe like hundreds of feet pull out my arrow. Cruel Man I know you you put it there. You know you gotta sit there, don't. If you give Brian the high ground. He will let them run as far as he wants to. I what I do love going back to the mythic tells them. You know maybe people one day telling the story of the Ghost I. I'm always sort of a sucker for. Stories that are about storytelling to a certain extent, because I do think you get so much of the human nature that we all deal with on a day to day basis of why we tell stories and everything and I I love that that permeates so much of this game, and not just in the quest, but on the on the ques- structure as a whole in this game I think is really unique, but it works really well. Because as Brian was saying earlier, you can go to a house in. Someone's saying Oh. There are nearby. Please help me or someone one of my favorite stories early on one of the side missions I found was. A woman send you to get food from the bandit that stole it from her. And then you bring the food back and she's like. Oh, thanks! I finally have food down. You're like. Wait a second. That wasn't yours to begin with. I just killed all those guys because you can't, there's. There's this. Stark sadness to a lot of the stories that I think really works in this game and I was just curious on like a total storytelling. Horrible 'cause there are moments of levity. You know like everything with Kennedy I think is so great, but how do you you know balance? I think this is a land and a group of people who are under siege. They're under attack by the suppressive force. At the same time. They are living their lives. There's this humanity going on the island. Hugs, what are some of the struggles that come up and try to tell those stories? Yeah, well first of all. When you started telling me, which story were, I was like racking my brain like which? It was so many. I I know it's crazy and I'm gonNA. Play through a bunch probably that I've played through in a long time, I play retail, but. You know It's balanced because you don't want it to be this like we did not want our game to be this like heavy thing that was constantly hitting you over the head with a that was just not what we wanted for this particular game. Think anybody really goes from bad particularly. I think they're always in goal, but but in it's hard, though because invasion and you wanna see desperation, and you WanNa see like these people have struggles. And frankly you know we want to. You know it's not always like dude. Go kill things, and so you WanNa hear you know people having. Their kids, or this or that like our parents like I. Don't know you just want to hear something that sounds like these people are struggling a little bit. But you know the when it comes to the writing and those stories, most of the stories do most of them do exist to try and reflect at the world has been in invaded, invaded place and. For people that are like these allies, and you engage with those those will get a little bit more in depth than traveling of their story, and for these little small one off encounters. Just say look even even the hasn't class is affected greatly by this and hopefully feel a sense of remorse for them or sadness for them, maybe a sense of duty that why you're doing this stuff, but as for the tone of it. I genuinely like a somber tone in general, I think Sambre is is not dark. Sombre is not grotesque. Sambas is just like a like A. Light sadness to things and I felt like that light sadness in a world that is so incredibly. Beautiful is kind of a nice. Balance and I think we look at it now that way and to some extent. That's a really good way putting now that now that you say that. It makes perfect sense because. You have all these incredible like you know. There's Fox's in this you know. Like. Rainstorms the beautiful trees and yellow leaves, but then you go, do these side quests on. You're like Oh. Wow, that was. Your family died and you can save them and you're like damn. That hit me hard that one. Particularly, there was one side quest for like now I know, too. Hard that one's talents so hard and You know there that one people on on the team who? Created that one, and then like you know as we get through the Polish face like Alan, somebody went through and added a bunch of extra work to that one for animation, and like kneeling down, and you know I you know in from liking that mission to really like connecting with more, and this is a small thing right like this is not a. Two hour long you know big big mission. It's very straightforward and simple cement to just reflects the tone of the world, a little bit and Alan Dow was one of the ones that, even though it's a small moment in your entire through I think improved a lot of the last course of the project I'm glad it exists. That's awesome. Yeah, I I, don't even know if I necessarily have a question about it, but I'm just curious to hear more about the the construction of the the site quests when it comes to the side tails when it comes to those the supporting cast that you get because I do I do think one of my favorite things. Throughout sucker punches, history has been that there is of course he usually a pretty great main character, but also this really great supporting cast as well, and you know going back to sign infamous now with ghost. I loved finding out more about Yuna and lady Moscow and just everyone at the pace that you want to in the world. And that balance I guess my question is because I. do think that's some of my favorite story. Telling him the Games in the game comes from those lines. How do you balance having this stuff? Be Optional I guess if you if a player just wants to go through the main story, but also encouraged people to want to keep going back and revisit these stories in these characters. Yeah Yeah! It's a question you know we From I is long as I can remember. I think I, think earliest pitches of the game we talked about. How we really wanted to create sort of this. Anthology of short stories. know these little little side branches off the main trunk. You know that you could. You'RE GONNA. You'RE GONNA get invited to them on the main truck main story. You'RE GONNA. Get invited them and maybe even once or twice in an engaged with them, but it's up to you hopefully, engaging enough for that story relates to you. It's up to you to kind of go. Finish out the rest of that branch, and we do a lot of stuff like we try to reward you for doing these things but I find that those things are They're good and I'm super glad. Glad reward you in different ways for playing these, but I find that the beauty of those those allies missions. If you will Masako. Norio characters is that they're just they're. They're far more developed in terms of like there are like what they need out of the world in their stories are interesting, and and they all have a different perspective on you and life, and you know in an what I what I think is kind of cool about creating a world like this is that you have to be okay with having content that exists. You're not forced to play. And you have to embrace that you have to because that. That is what makes it joyful when you go on your own ambition to go through it. It's not that you were told to go. Do it was in the Golden Path? And there were versions of the game earlier that a lot of these characters stories were more interconnected to Go Path. Through play, testing and feedback in her own kind of iteration process. We ended up where they are. Which I think is the right spot. which is you introduce them and then? Over your curiosity, we can push them push. You can go enjoy them your own Yossi, and there. Some of them are five or six missions long. And I think that's the right model, but it takes some iteration to get to that that that's spot for us. Even having late in the game the I think it's two missions for Eureka that pop up after you've revisited home. Just was such a such a Gut Punch. In the midst of as Jin, story is starting to come, full circle meant to have this exploration both more into him, but also into her life It's it was like as you were saying I, it felt so much more rewarding because I, saw it out that story within the. Yeah I think that that's A. It's not an easy philosophy to hold you now. as a director or as a contributor designer artist, because it means that somebody is going to get a bunch of people, not GonNa, play your mission bench people are not going to see your artwork, and and it's really hard to like talk about that because I want everyone to who worked on this game at Sakkara Punch to just like the super proud of it and love every moment that they cred tributed, too, but that's one where it's like. Yeah, but your thing is optional, and I can really bad, but it. In these cases it is for the for a greater feeling that. The people that will engage with it will probably tear out will probably love or be maybe even their favor mission of the game, even not the golden path I gave might be their favorite moment in the game nest. Because you, you let them engage it at their own will in. That's A. that's a hard philosophy to to. kind of stomach, but I think it's I. think it's a really healthy one for the type of game that ghost is. It absolutely plays into who I I think. My favorite thing about the game. Is that Me In the act of playing the game, so has to the game halfway in a presents all of these options, but I have to go exploring too, and I feel encouraged and want to explore and of my favorite times playing have just been putting a dot on the map letting the wind guy. A thousand kilometers, and if I if something stops me, stop if it doesn't I just keep going until something else. Interest me awesome. It's a calming experience which I don't often say I think about games at the moment. That's exactly how I played, too I would just put a marker somewhere completely random very far from me and just go there and see what I ran into along the what along the way with stories popped up which new characters I would meet, that would show me points of interest and stuff like that. and I think that that loop was really smart in terms of having sort of random gangs of bad guys. Patrolling the land and you'd run into them, and they'd have somebody kidnapped, and you'd rescue that person and that person would tell you another place to go. It felt like you're constantly pulling on these little threads. and I loved that so much was did that did that all take awhile to come together? Like outside of the wind is sort of the way the. The optional stuff and the sort of like randomize character you know excursions and stuff all interconnect. How how was it bringing all that stuff together to create the flow that you guys ended up with? The I I you both sound like you've played it exactly the way that I would recommend somebody to play, which is like hey, you know every now and then just throw down and go that direction and see what you find, and and if you don't find some great than go to your Golden, Pastora that's awesome, but try it, and because it's. In this is true for even when we're doing play testing that we did find that that was some of the ways that people would enjoy the game the most which is awesome. will you're talking about that? Like the ecosystem imbalance of people who tell you where stuff is in? How many patrols are there that stuff I'll tell you? We tweak that probably. Maybe until weeks before gold I think. Exactly the number on no top ahead, but is very late. We tweak those numbers because. because the sense of owning the curiosity, and like not having everything told you. was so important to the global feeling of enjoying just like exploring throughout the world, and as soon as you're told, were too much. Stuff is or too many things around your map. It becomes a different problem like you're kind of you either you either go into. Let's just go through the checklist which. Is Fine I think if you found them on your own but can be exhausting for some people because they're like Oh God. There's a ton of stuff to do, or it's kind of a turn off because you already know what it is, and you don't think of anything else over there, but they're actually might be if you if you actually went look, so we actually ramped down the people that the amount of people that would tell you where things were quite a bit. It used to be far more. part of the emergent processes I've almost everybody who talked to tell you. Something is, and it would put a thing on your map and We found that to be Super Smart System, and I'm so glad that we have it, but we put it in a very specific way in a very specific amount of things on the map total. Total that it would ever tell you about so that you still had your cool moment of like i. don't see anything over here on this. I'm going to head that way and finds things along the way now balance. It's really it's really tricky. Because again it goes up to that thing. I was talking about early. Enough loss of being okay with things being skipped and. That if you don't want to be so much that you don't have any information, that would be bad too right so it it is takes time to to work out, but the team did that. No, no a healthy fund way but I think even when you like clear. Mongol, Camp and Clears up a little bit. You still get a question mark. It's not even like yours, a hotel or something like that. And it's sort of it to me. It fell It felt like A. SORT, of natural to the universe that you guys were setting your game in this is this is like a long time ago. There is those no yelp. There's no google. So it seemed natural that you'd find a random person on the street and be like Oh. Thank you so much. There's this awesome restaurants. You should go check it out. Right I really doug. That I played a ton of the game in Kerr. Asala Mode Oh cool and that was. It was really it was really difficult for me. 'cause you made such beautiful game central? And I think it's I think it's. Beautiful in a different way in Curacao mode. But there was just something so special about about like heading into conflict or a story be or coming into a new environment. or it's all black and white, and there's that film green crackling, and a I read that you guys even did some stuff with the music to make it feel almost like it was coming through old speakers or something like that. Yeah, how how how how did how did you develop that? I I know. That's like obviously. It's something that you're studios. Really proud of especially since you've got endorsement from the family. It was a that was A. That was a I. I probably will put that in my top list of my entire career as like being apart process because. I mean it's just. It's just why just kind of a wild thing that you don't go into making video games because you expect to go through that process one day, yeah. which is probably why it's cool is that it's different. You know, but. The. We knew that we WANNA. Do Black and white mode I mean I think i. I don't remember when we first talked about it, but it was definitely really early Redo black and white vote, but again it got kind of pushed towards the end of the project, and then once things started to. You know you can sit in the world and you could be like. Oh, my goddess stunning! It's really a beautiful I feel I. Do feel like I'm. There's moments of this I feel like movie. It's coming. It's coming together. And, then we're like okay well. We definitely have that mode. Let's are planning for it. And an I got version of it in that was a very early version of it with a sliding team and Like what do we call this thing? and You Owe Samurai cinema or classic. Why can Wyatt our traditional La just things? You know cool cool names. And member WHO's I may was Brian Studio head. I don't remember somebody was like. When we see if we can call it, Chris Allen Mode. And I thought that was brilliant and I was like. Yes, can we? What was that process so I reached out to. One of the people that I think he deserves a special shout at his name as a relay Katami. He's on our Japanese producer. He's a helped us since the very almost since the very beginning, and he helps coordinate all of our feedback through Japan, and said Hey, you hey, who's now a dear friend of mine. I was like. Is this possible. Could you look this up? And he and the Japanese team reached out to their to their state across our state and worked out You know. They wanted to see video so I. Put together a video, and then I redid it like three times because enough. People on time video, but I was like Austin. Even Brian Our leauge rendering Guy Jasmine. He was not good. No. Though I kinda Redid it a couple of times and then eventually Is this. Is it I? I looked at so many movies measured the black and white. You know in our game. You know as you both played it. Daytime Times. There's indoor's whether there's rain. There's fog and so like you have to look at movies that have all of these things you can't just be like. Here's a movie. Here's a sample. It's the black. Man Like you gotTa. Look at all these because they exist in our game and it's a filter that'd be going over all of these and so I finally got to the point where I was, I had good black levels. White levels has cool noise. We sent them a video and and It took a little bit of time back and forth, but eventually we're like asses cooling reach an agreement. They were cool with it so. Yeah it was a it was a coup processing showed up. Is Mode teams all shit? It's called. Is it was pretty cool goal process. It has a dream come true. It's so awesome on a historical level. Because obviously you're seeing the game through its you know from the reveal trailer to now there's clearly a love and Joe Majd to the cinema and the storytelling that come in the John Mara, before it, and so to have that encapsulated as a mood that you can jump into starting to such a great I. Think like touchtone full circle thing as a fan of genres well. Also I mean the. The audio! From from like A. A gigantic Blue Tang Fan. It's it sounded like like RISI's sampling. VHS, tapes of sword slashes, and like there were moments. Paint that game and I was like I expect like method man rapid right now because. If anyone was intended, but that sort of got me on a very very like neural level I was like Oh my God like this is. This is quietly the best. Wu Tang game ever made since. The fighting gave. The quote somewhere I feel. That's. But. Our audio director Brad he that's all him he was like. I have an idea that guy's a wizard, so that usually meant something cool and he. It was like we have this special thing that we developed internally at Sony that replicates old processes from like you know fifty sixty s something like that radios and TV's and and And and he he kind of took that filtered it and figured out the right 'cause he was like. If you do too much over, you know, we wanted people to play lengthy amount of times and if they wanted to the Chrysanthemum. View too much, and it becomes incredibly fatiguing. Like, not watching move hours possibly thirty hours. You know so. You got a nice balance between that and something that you can you know Listen to over and over again? I- legitimated Curacao Mode for Poly Twenty five thirty hours and I think that I like maybe fifty sixty into the game. So how yeah! That's incredible. Yeah, along along with that and to me. It was surreal to play an open world game almost entirely in black and white. That was just I've never done anything like that before and. It was such a cool. It was such a cool experience. One of the challenges with eggs I would add is like since it's black and white. There's there's missions that use color as guiding, and so there are. There are a few missions of. It really struggles with, but for the most part we redesigned icons on the map so that it would work with answer, so you're not just looking at two icons ones. This color ones that color and we just changed the icon Lopate, but but yeah it, it's it's generally speaking. You can play through most of the game with it, which is just crazy. Yeah I think there was one mission where they're like find. The purple flowers was like Oh! I was to right back on, so that was good. Leads to so many great visual moments, and as you were saying I know we're running short on time I. don't want believe the too much, but I, genuinely really loved, and as pointing to earlier the the soundtrack and the way both game uses it. It comes in from quiet to loud, but also how the score changes both from the combat setting to the open world setting you know. Moments I would say not settings, but. That Jackson position as well as even on the side, the remixes that were coming out sort of in the lead up to the Games launch. There's so much great musicality and artistry. Bear that I think really. Elevate, so much of what's going on there on visual rebel to a works so well in tandem. You know there is no single discipline that contributes more to the game. The music like a known this case we have to composers, a team of people that obviously help implemented like their artistry is like. White just level things up so much like a scene without music in a scene with music. There's a world of difference in generally speaking I know it's not one contributor. There's quite a few people that make it happen. Processing and implementation, but it's insane. What music can do in for this game? It's it's. It's one of the best parts of the Game I. Think is the the the artistry behind the music in the soulful fullness in is is really I listened to it a lot. I love and then we tokens the glitch mob. Which is just? RIDICULOUSLY COOL! Yeah, it's an awesome combination i. do think as you were saying. It elevates so many great moments, but really. A drills home like the emotional undercurrent of everything that's going on in the game. Unfortunately. We're pretty much out of time. I think Brandon I could keep talking there so much. We love and really enjoyed about the experience and are continuing to enjoy. Time in this world, so Jason Thank you so much for taking time. We really appreciate it. SUPERFUND and thank thank you to your studio for. bookending this entire console generation with my favorite games. I I don't know if that was ever the plan, but the way that

A lot of the people that we've talked to recently on the podcast, brought up the issue of cryptosporidium What is your general censor or outbreaks of Crypto? On the uprise, are they. Are they becoming more frequent? I think it's more than it's being identified by our local doctors, offices and labs, and that kind of thing is just like we've seen an uptick in Legionella mafia outbreaks, and that being identified, and you know that's not always spread by a spa or splash pad, it can be spread by aged. AC systems are contaminated cruelly towers or anything, hot water systems that are contaminated where you got dead and plumbing, so yeah, there's an uptick but a Lotta Times as a deal at testing. It's kind of like covid nineteen. There's kind of that uptick, but it's also increase in testing. They're so. It's the same thing with some of these other organisms.

How to 10x Your Headline Success Rate
"To another episode of Marketing School. I'm Eric Su and I'm Neil Patel and today we're GonNa talk about how to ten x your headline success rate. So what was a quote from David? Ogilvy Neil I don't know what the quote in need of your dollar is spent on the headline there. You go so you gotta right good headlines. And by the way when we do these podcasts episodes. What will happen is myself. My team will put it a bunch of ideas and Neil later on his ideas as well. But the key thing as we're working on writing great headlines We think headlines that you're going to click and that's worked out well for us right but I think we want to give you some practical tips on what you can do with being consistent with your headline and one of the things. I love doing what it comes. The headline writing is I love making swipe files. What does that mean so facebook? I might find an ad that catches my attention. Al-samet in facebook you could actually save it and save it to collection minds called ads that. I like instagram. Save it adds that I like. I'm just screen shotting and I'm finding the things that stopped me in my tracks and what I'm trying to do there is. I'm trying to take the template of what they have. So maybe the headline is five simple ways to grow your instagram to a billion followers. Or something like that right. That's a template and then you can take that template modified to whatever you're offering but the whole idea here is you have a Swipe Library of ads or headlines that I've stopped in your tracks. And here's your trying to modify a template there and then you're trying to test these different headlines. That's an easy way to go about doing so. Eric when we started this podcast than the David Ogilvy s for you guys were listening and it's somewhat similar real numbers it at ten people read your headline but only two out of ten will read the rest of your content in other words if your headline is appealing. You're going to get way more people reading your content. Most people don't hence most people stop once. Read the headline. They don't continue going forward. The biggest thing that I like doing see most people wanting headlines I think of keywords when it comes to Seo or they think about Click Bay Alec evoking Yossi because vocal curiosity. I don't really consider that Click Bay. It's more so it gets people really engaged and hooked and it keeps the follow through so more people read your content or take action. We your landing page potential even buy from you so when I mean by evoking curiosity. Let's have an article on the benefits of green tea. I may end up putting like the seven benefits of green tea number. Six will shock. You and I'll put number six will shock you in parentheses right and I would only use that if number six is really amazing and most people don't know about it and it truly does benefit them because if it doesn't and it's not that great then you're just using click bait and I find out everything that I've done when it comes to. Evoking curiosity has generated the most amount of clicks and the most Monday engagement than anything else. The hardest part is figuring out where people are super curious that you know the one engaged in read cool so I'm going to add onto a swipe library. I was talking about earlier. So if you guys want some sites that you can go to look at as and create your Swipe Library in go to swipe dot. Co that includes a lot of long form sales letters old school stuff to facebook library. That's free to use you. Check out what's going on there at beats that's a d. At there's a free version of it or a free trial. I believe we can see from Google display ads and in Land Dash Book Dot Com. You can see different landing pages so you want to start building at Swipe Library right now and then to point you. WanNa be evoking. Curiosity depends on the space that you're especially to be people like numbers people proprietary case studies that you can share so just keep that in mind as well. The other thing that you want to do with your headlines to is when you ride them go to five or six people and try to get their attention one of the best strategies that I've seen someone do. This was John. Moreau and I'm probably butchering his last name. But what John used to do is go to group of drunk people and read off his headlines. The one that got their engagement and strike the conversation up and they wanted to continue talking. That's the one that he knew was a winner. It's a little bit out there to do that. Strategy is a little bit of work but it's a smart approach because if you're going into room people who don't want to pay attention to you and you can say something that grabs their attention. You're onto something

Male Bats Up Mating Odds With Mouth Morsels
"This is science Americans sixty seconds science. I'm Karen Hopkin sharing a meal is a standard first step in the mating rituals of many mammals, but Egypt fruit, bats take splitting an entree to a whole other level because males that allow females to take the food, right? Out of their mouths are repaid with reproductive rights and are more likely to sire offspring with their favorite female fruit finagler 's, that's according to a study in the journal current biology, a couple years back researchers noticed that in fruit bat colonies, some bats forage for food while. Other simply snatch it from the forager's mel's. Offices for expanding this Yossi avail of Tel Aviv university has studied these bets for years. Maybe the scroungers were relatives he says, or maybe they're just socially dominant bullies. We observe the mostly scroungers are females.

Sex food. I officers that we just you've Ellen his colleagues monitored, the interactions among bats in their colony for more than a year. And the check the paternity of the baby bets that were born what they found is that females were more likely to make babies with those males that provided free meals. But you've Bill says that the process is not strictly transactional. Sometimes they took a lot of footfalls civic individual of made with him. What's important is, is what we think is, is the bonds between the dome. So you this individual is the main provider of the female than the ability that they made. That means that offering free lunches, no guarantee for an Emmers male. But it does up his odds. And unlike human males that boys clearly learned that it's in their romantic interest to chew with their mouths open. Thanks for listening for scientific Americans sixty seconds science.

Well, apple already discontinued the nine devices, the iphone six s and success, plus the iphone SE the two thousand seventeen I had five and the original ipads, pro twelve point nine and nine point seven inches. The eight though, well, a lot of those are gone to the iphone six and six plus the ipad air to and just recently, the ipad mini four, but others abide like the apple TV for which apple now calls the apple TV HD the year old home pot, and of course still available. I pod touch six now the apple TV, in-home home pod run off shoots of IRS, not the proper version like the ipod touch does. So this probably less. To worry about their from compatibility point of view. But what if it's less about processor and more about screen size what if apple and developers are finding it more and more painful to keep supporting that old two thousand twelve year for inch display iphone five and I phone five a long on iphone five s and I s e been discontinued as well. But that I touch six again is still being sold, at least for now that could change though, maybe as soon as WBZ twenty nineteen and a few weeks, maybe later this year during the annual September iphone event share maybe never. But there have been some rumors so hit. Subscribe dragon breath that little Belga mostly. You don't miss any more videos, and then let's go over everything, I'm Renee Ritchie. And this is Victor, the original ipod touch launched a few months after the original iphone way back in September of two thousand and seven and for a few years, well, the ipod touch never quite matched. The feature set of the iphone it at least receive. Updates of its own up to an including the fourth generation in twenty ten which eilly got a camera, not just on the front, but on the back as well, then in two thousand eleven for the first time apple decided to skip, the year things got back on track in two thousand twelve though, because just after the iphone five went to a four inch display the ipod touch five followed and then promptly stayed there in stasis through twenty thirteen in the advent of sixty four bit and through twenty fourteen in the introduction of the big and bigger four point seven inch and five point five inch displays when the ipod touch did get up dated, again, in two thousand fifteen despite the iphone getting three D touch all the ipod touch Kat was new internals. Well, year-old internals by then the product goal, at least as I understood it at the time was similar to the iphone, S E, take a device a segment of the market loved, and modernize it so that they could keep on loving it for just a few more years, but then twenty sixteen and you'll camera systems came and went twenty seventeen in the compl-. Redesigned, full, oh, lead screened iphone ten even twenty and the even bigger. I phone tennis max very nearly four years. Have come and gone. The MAC book air has been updated. The MAC mini has been updated, even the twenty thirteen MAC, pro has been announced as getting an update and the ipod touch nothing not a zip zilch, the Walking Dead or mostly dead because there have been those rumors and anything with rumors has to be considered at least partially alive. Now, those rumors really only started to surface over the course of this last year back in January Macara claim they heard chatter about a new seventh generation ipod touch in and around CAS the lowest cost entry level device, and it always served as a gateway to the app store for anyone the least bit curious, but not at all committed apples ecosystem for kids who didn't need in parents who didn't want them to have a phone as a cheap music player or gaming device or as an inexpensive way for developers to have an extra device or two around. For testing, but as it's grown older, and increasingly outdated, many of those use cases of become less, and less tenable, also in January, Steve Smith tweeted that he found references to a new ipod ipod nine a want to be precise in IOS twelve point two, but one that's still wouldn't include either face, ide-, which, I guess, of course, but also not touch ID, which is a bit of a head scratcher given even the budget nine point seven inch ipad still has Taichi and Apple Pay because of it. I mean, unless keeping costs down really really really low is the absolute and only concern for this device, convenient yet, secure enough access damned now the current who are current, as in two thousand fifteen ipod touch is seven comma one, so why would skip eight comma one and go straight to nine comma one probably for the same reason. They skipped six one and went straight to seven comma, one a few years ago, they chose not to ship, whichever models would have come in twenty thirteen or twenty fourteen and again in two thousand sixteen or twenty seventeen and just like it caused a jump from an apple eight five.
