What About Your Friends?
"An Omni. Not to met in two thousand eleven. This is an talking about that night. We were set up by a friend, our friend dial Ola Padre a genius woman with a lot of foresight and the venue or rather the excuse for us to meet was A. Gossip girl television viewing gathering usually viewing party, but it was it was not a party, right? Like it was a bunch of people on the couch watching TV. Younger listeners won't know what this means, but you used to have to just watch TV when it was on. Like just imagine that TV was on at a specific time kids. So when certain shows like gossip girl became popular, they were just a part of the Zeitgeist because they were only so many things that person could be watching said felt like everyone was watching it. Plus Anna Nami. Naci both lived in DC where young and cable TV, the kind of Ecuador record in advance. If you WANNA to do was expensive and streaming didn't really exist yet it was a simpler time. This is on me not to. You know I was like, okay. I know that she's a feminist lady with like a fun sense of humor which. You know I was like that. That's such a very specific. You know kind of you know like kind of person I was like, yeah. We probably have the same length feminist hope bags probably you know like there's some like ven diagram like overlap there. So like very superficially that was one thing but like within the context of the Party itself, you know I was like everything. Was Fun. It was like yes dioz absolutely. Correct. I love how this lady dresses I love every joke she's telling I love her look I like her ideas I like the way she talks you know when you like imprint on someone that you like immediately like it's almost like they can't do anything wrong like everything is just charming to you and so I was very charmed. It was like that for both of them. They just clicked in that because of the tote bags but because for both of them, they were just in the same as of life and experiencing this phase in the same way. That really was a kind of unsettled kind of unhappy searching point of my life. I mean we were in Washington DC where our peers were pretty transient. Kind of place where a lot of people will go and work for a few years and then move on us included and I think we realized when we went to retrace our steps to write this book that we each had a very close friend who at the time we met was like either in the process of moving or we knew they were just about out the door and there was that feeling of unrooted this is that even a word we were not rooted. And we were really trying to figure out what the next phase of our adult life was going to be like, and so I, think that it really was profound to meet someone who I connected with. So deeply because it really felt like, I don't know it felt like almost like immediately being routed to someone as opposed to being routed to a place which I had not felt in the almost two years I lived in DC at that point.

So let's get ready and tune in very closely for this incredible conversation with the Amazing Light Watkins. Crutches. You're crushing man. We're just broke down over here. We're going in numbers. You I gotta get out of here. For some. Happen to be. A. Hurry up. Real quick. Back. We just puts it a fireman. You spend a you have to. Bear. Army leafs everything. Man here sharp come over here. Be Ready. So last time we talked you were doing when you're like I, think about you. Avatar like there's this cartoon, my son and I watch this for back in the day but there's his character named and he's Avatar and he's traveling from place to place you know. In the energy around learning, and then you move onto the next place you know you had your bag you was out there. You know and obviously things have changed. So first of all, how was that experience of traveling what is far to do that in that capacity in house have been the pivot being back home this kind of home spot here. With US and Callie. Yes. So I I went. In two thousand in May of two, thousand, eighteen, I got rid of all of my. Belongings that didn't fit in a carry on bag and I was in Santa Monica and a two bedroom apartment. I was forty five at the time so. At forty something years of stuff. Literally like baby albums had shoe boxes full of letters from you know twenty thirty years just being an adult. and. So. I sort of methodically got rid of everything and. All the memorabilia out and took photos of most of it. So I had it in the cloud. And I did it because I had A. I don't know I had. I don't know I. Think I feel like minimalism nomadic lifestyle was in the Zeitgeist at the time so I was getting this strong urge to. To have that experience, and so I just said Yes to it because I had been practising saying yes to stuff like that my you know my entire. Adult life. And I did it and so I started hopping around different cities who my carry on bag in backpack, and then I was like I can do better than this. and. Merged everything into a backpack. So got rid of the carry on. Bag. Onto that Dora the explorer. Yeah exactly and. Yes I've been doing that for the last couple of years and honestly man I have not missed having. A stability. And in fact, what I discover was that the true stability was inside right And so if you have that, you can be anywhere and you can be fine. And so when the pandemic hit. Obviously changed a lot of things because I was going international a lot. And I couldn't do that, and so I just kind of got an AIRBNB and grounded for a while but I'm still living out of my backpack. So I'm still living the lifestyle, but I'm just in one place for longer and then you know. So now what's interesting about it is that people are asking me. Do you miss being on the road all the time and I'm actually now I don't miss it at all I'm happy to be in one place because in the last couple years, I've literally been around the World Two or three times over and so you know It's nice to be able to kind of ground and focus on some projects. I got my podcast off the ground and got my third book turned in and all these other things that I was like asking for time to stop knowing that that's not a realistic ask but I was putting it out in the universe anyway and very low and behold. So is your fault times. Which is why? Twenty twenty because I know what I was.

You know look there was a whole. You know we have a whole three act structure now to do that's why I told you because I really wanted to to close that up for you guys closure. My Rooster did pass away unexpectedly, which is very sad. Thank you. But the girls are doing fine without him and now I wonder if they killed him but. I. Don't think that they did intrigue. who done it on many levels I like yeah, I got I got a lot of different channels going. used to play the SIMS and. Now, I have now I, have livestock. Stories onto my tickets. You are the mayor of chicken city I am gradually chicken town bitch. What are we think of? I keep seeing these things as like women who kill and like there's like About it, there's like TV shows. Who's who where are you seeing? This is your wife showing these to you know no, are you sure your wife is leaving Monica this. Leaving them on or like book open to a certain page no yeah. The book. Okay. So the poisoning book yes. The poisonous handbook. Book that she loved. Check. Their husbands. Who never see it coming? Yes. Women with two children who killed their husbands. Your husband wants more sneakers how Plants that might be around your house. Tell your husband. It's okay to chew on plants that are around the house. It's fine. It's No. I didn't say poison Barry I said boys in Berry. Implication that I'm just randomly chewing on plants. She's like, yeah sure. Go ahead. Go ahead. Dumb, husband the. Poisoning, your husband's don't don't. Look. What What. People think is true. You know to be false or vice versa. So this was inspired by a conversation I had with my friend that Completely unrelated to anything we've talked about so far the myth that milk is bad for you. Okay I don't think it's true. I drink milk. I like never get acne. So. anecdotally myth busted. That's those are the facts you drink milk every day every day. Kind of milk whole milk oh life. Cream top way what You do a half a half floating are. Comes it's like whole milk, but it comes with the cream on the top of it. Half based half-and-half where you. Straight out of a bucket on a no, it's like they haven't a whole foods and like. Yeah sounds rouse. It comes in a glass bottle Oh straus family creamery. 'cause I I like fatty acids, milk. That's what I'm saying. It's fucking because like in Japan the milk fat content over there is so much as a kid I grew up drinking like I feel like what tasted like half and half And like, and then I would come to like get my school lunch and it'd be like two percent and I'm like what the fuck is this watered down. To the point where like I hated even like the low fat milk that I would just get the two percent because it was closer to water and pound them shits like like it was water anyway. All that to say is okay I got my eye on this cream top now. It's drinking every day. How you? How'd you develop the like the habit like? Always. Drank milk when I was a kid and you know when you're in school every kid drinks milk that's what they give you for lunch right? So I would just drink those. Those were always like Kinda gross. They're like carton milk tastes like. Cardboard and it's two percent milk. So it's a little watery. But at home, we would just buy whole milk, which is actually only like three percent milk fat. It's not even that much more. Yeah, and then I liked that and I just always have likes you know like heavier creamier milk. So then like a few years ago. I think. I think my mom maybe founded or I found it but we found this milk that has like the cream top on it, and now that I'm loving it yeah because I think I drink around all the I'll drink three point eight percent fat or even four point two wait where do you find that though Japan like they have the? Carton Bro like this is like three point eight, four, point Oh, four, point two. You. WanNa fuck your heart up. Go ahead. We got it That would be when you drink. That was cereal. ooh, that sounds good. I grew up eating cereal with skim milk. We were like a big ask why would you even drink milk getting? Milk I know it's so bad. Now going back to that. It sucks I didn't. Pour water on it's just weird looking water. Yeah. Grey bluewater. Why? Why are we doing this? Why did you do this to me Oh man? Yeah. Know, you don't know what's here list post to be if you've been eating skim milk and that is what it has as like on the nutritional information. Gif, you just put a cup of Skim milk in here. It's like, why would I do that? Why don't you just tell me what it would be like if I just poured the cereal down the fucking.
Bring on the snack cake cereal
"Welcome to the Empty Bowl might name is Justin mcelroy and I am a serial enthusiast. My name is Dan Gilbert and I am a serial ethnographer in the sense that I know the cereal culture in the overall breakfast. Zeitgeist well enough to understand the impact of some of the stories we're about to talk about today. that's. So exciting we have so much going on this first news story Dan. I have to tell you. I'm thrilled over here over on this end. I mean it's huge. It's absolutely. Substantial. So. When you write about serial for five years I have inevitably you end up seeing some of the same things again and again, and one of the easiest things to do when you're reading about serial is to tell the world about the weirdly specific cereals that you've always wanted to see on shelves and for me Besides gingerbread toast crunch I think the second most idea of cereal I've ever had would be a little. OATMEAL, cream pies cereal, and now we must wait no more as Kellogg's has partnered with the snack brand to bring oatmeal cream pie cereal two shelves later this year. What's IT GONNA look like? So so from appearance alone, it doesn't necessarily look like the sort of sandwiched cream, an oatmeal cookie. Snack cake that you're familiar with It looks more like a brown oatmeal ring cereal, which is fine. I'm not really in this for appearances so much as the legacy of the snack taking question. You say, what did you say that the cream pie is your favorite little w product It's up there with cosmic Brownie alum that plastic chocolate on a on a cosmic Brownie I used to get star crunches a lot when I was a kid in my lunch bag but I don't like those so I don't know why I felt the need to tell you that but. You know it the for me. I'd say it's a three way tie between the oatmeal Cream Pie the double decker oatmeal cream pies. Distinct feast and the fudge around, which is essentially just a chocolate oatmeal cream by but overall I, think the oatmeal cream pies and amazing snack product. It's probably my go-to whenever I am Matt a gas station stopped long road trip. So I'm very very excited to see it come serial form. Especially, it's going to be a thin line to walk to get that exact flavor because as I, discovered recently. Raisins are in the battle of the bill cream pie. It's sink. Yes. Yes. Yes. Raisins in the OATMEAL cream. Pie. So that's why like you get that like is what gives it its distinct flavor is that there's raisins mixed into into the batter period into the better so. That will be a tricky flavor to to nail. Think I'm really hoping that mine is not the only mind that you've blown with this revelation right here because I did not know that at all I mean. meanwhile, I was just hoping that this is an actual oath based serial rather than some some sort of corn contraption because I think it'd be really an authentic otherwise but. I think my favorite thing about the story overall is how you just know that someone at Kellogg's saw post team up with hostess to drop the sort of twinkies, etcetera cereals, and immediately thought. Get Little Debbie on the horn. We're not going to stand for this sort of force that cooperation to happen. Yeah, it's funny that you mentioned cosmic brownies actually because when the story first broke before, it became official from Kellogg's themselves There was a youtube video of someone reviewing the little debbie cereal or oatmeal cream pies cereal before anyone knew about it and they were also reviewing cosmic Brownie cereal. It was weird because they had the box for Little Debbie oatmeal cream pies cereal but they didn't have any official box art for the cosmic brownies cereal and the stuff really kinda looked like the cocoa puffs Brownie crunch that rerelease not too long ago. So it's very uncertain. The legitimacy of this cosmic Brownie cereal because after the news officially dropped I reached OCTA Kellogg's my contact there and ask them about this and all I could tell me in the Vegas. Possible terms was that a cosmic brownies Syria was not releasing at this time. The seems like a tacit confirmation that cosmic Brownie Syria was at least considered whether it will actually be released or not or if it was scrapped entirely remains uncertain but the point remains that we're entering a brave new world of snack cakes, cereals and I'm all here for it.
Fall Guys Soars
"No but can we talk about fog is for a second oh? Yeah. Let's talk about folk is let's talk about because it's it's a good story almost unbelievable and and and dotty sports had a had a headline. This week saying fall fog is had sold two million copies on steam. And and at one point, I know because I was watching some of the streamers playing it. I think over the weekend like their servers crashed there was just there were so many people there were so much interest that they had not anticipated like I. Thought this was a joke to be honest when I first saw the game. I. Think I saw Kirstein Execute C. Street right and he has A. Reputation. For being a variety streamer, it doesn't stick to one game right and he'll often play a stupid quote unquote line. I don't mean. You know what I mean like silly games just because it produces a reaction from his audience or it's super hard or it has some mechanic that is frustrating. So he can rage like he'll play different stuff from the norm and I thought this is just excuse qc being exceed playing some silly little new game. I had honestly I had no idea up until I started digging into it. This is like. Serious brl ambition seriously long-term. Fortnight type of ambition. It seems so simple to me. You know I had also underestimated this game too. You know it had been on my radar obviously knew it was coming out. Because the studios? Reasonable reasonable things beforehand right. It's not like an indie studio in their first release. And Yeah I. Think There's three things here to point out one is. Never. Underestimate the power of two things like What is it called sack? Was it what is called sack boy on? What's the? PS, tired old but like did really well with the puppets. ignored. I met. Remember, remember the name of that game a little big planet. Yes. Yes. Yes. Never I like I learned this lesson time and time again with Viva Pinata and like never underestimate the power of little big planet styling wake it. Just it has a really broad audience appeal and you know like then pay per game just as genre is under indexed and typically does well that type of. To is I think in a lot of ways and again, I haven't played this game at I. Need to I'm behind the ball and a lot of ways I think this captures the magic of Rocket League from what I'm understanding like it's a very simple easy to explain sporting style concept, right? It's ring out right that. Recording plus here yeah, it's it's easy to get. The third thing I would say is just remember you know for people who were surprised like we are in an industry where quality matters like and you know, yes, lots of other things contributed success of a game. I. Think some are more successful, but we are also in industry where sometimes a game gets Zeitgeist, it gets the moment and. I think right now people are in the mood for something light and fun and social right and a Lotta people places. Now Light Fund single parents heavily social multiplayer game, and this ticks all the boxes right and why not you know and so do I think it's a very good game. Yes. Drink also just happened to get the gaming mentality in a moment when we wanted something like this. I think. So but the more exciting thing is what they do with it now because. In my mind, the big achievement is not selling two million. Copies or that is a huge achievement but many game sell millions of copies. I mean again, obviously many more games fail right. But lots of games console million copies. It's much harder to sustain and the real question here is, will these guys be able to sustain because that's the miracle that rocket coke off right? Rocket League took lightning in a bottle into an amazing competitive game that today is still. A very popular and even Marquee East Sport Right. You know. So I'm really curious to see how these guys built out from here, and that's part of why I WANNA look at this game very seriously because just because it simple does not mean it can't be competitive and serious, and in fact, many times simple is better if you have a clean gameplay system with deep emergent qualities that's preferred that's not a weakness right? So I'm very interested but have you I, mean, probably I'm commenting without having played it. So I'm a bit of loser. Have you played it have you tried it out I have played it. It's the kind of game like Look William I. Look at this knife, throw my hands up in the air and I go I don't get it I'm I sort of I can see the future when it comes to business in so many ways, but when it comes to like. Gassing if a game is going to be successful I decided I clearly but. That's out of my league that that's that's too much art involved. There's too much luck. There's too much orangey. That that I throw I throw sort of reason out the window and go I just don't get it right Can I. I know you have. Around successive aims. The, and I think it's reasonable framework to predict. Initial success of games. But like how do we know how long fog is is going to be around? Well you know. So so two things I think when it comes to quality of game and how it's received in the market just specifically the access of quality right I. Think it feels to me a little bit like rating and world of warcraft. Can let me explain what I mean. I'm liking. But occurs where you're going with this. It's like when you go to raid, there's lots of stuff you can do right. You can gear up, you can practice you can make sure you're with a group that you know like. That you know you're you're one of the few. You're like only one of two warlocks in the groups say a better chance of getting. You can do lot of things that like you can have game playing on Credit Mama the end of the day the gear drops or it doesn't know what I mean and and that's a bit when I feel like with game on. Quality is good developers eventually get hits just like if you rate enough, you eventually get your gear, but there is this unpredictable element to it, and so when I try to do in the book with the Omens Framework which I'm very proud of I really gets the best framework in the book is it doesn't. Omens. Doesn't really talk about quality the game it says take. That as agnostic, you just that subjective there's too much going on like you know you have to set that. Aside, it says water the business factors that determine the trajectory of the game right and those are now the books out I can talk about opportunities for cloning or competition monetization ecosystem network effects, switching costs, and you know I'll be honest. I don't see a game. Like fall guys taking many of those buckets, right because I think this game is relatively easy to clone Riley. Now that the genres out there can get knocked off pretty easily right it's not a free to play game right now you have to pay to buy it, and for this sort of panic accessible mode, I would have much preferred to see a micro transaction driven model. There's no ecosystem around it for competitive play or endorsement anything. There's a lot of celebrities instruments playing, but there's nothing like. Structure paid advertising sector to lock people end. So when this stops being the flavor does your people will migrate off. The network effects are partially there but not really there for this game because it's random matchmaking with outclassing is my understanding. So and switching costs, there's lots of stuff to unlock, but it doesn't fundamentally change the abilities of your player and the skills. This is maybe the game place where the game is the strongest because the skills you develop a relatively unique, you know what I mean. So that's a fast pass through the framework. But when I see is a game that doesn't. have.
Twitter Theory Says Composer Beethoven Was Black
"Beethoven <hes>? What because everybody? This is a tweet going around saying. Beethoven was black to debate now Beethoven. What that me I? I have no idea. I didn't even know that was the thing.

I'm a feminist bought the other day on twitter I saw somebody quite tweeting and mocking somebody else. For posting in a very tone-deaf way about fingernail Polish during a really dramatic news cycle when everyone else was focusing on something more important and I looked to that also judge the person, but then what it said did sound interesting, so I quickly clicked on. Did Not favourite the mocking because I had done that, so I want that piece of apostasy out there. Yeah, but you did think I wonder what she's done with her nail furnish it was it was something interesting about punish walk, possibly meet Nelson, but in that moment I thought I do want to see was the complaint that it was too fancy distracting fancy, or was it that it was like kind of crack not very well. No, it was about some kind of new methods of. It's like stickers for your nails that look like nail Polish so that. During lockdown. No, it was the twitter fade, and everyone else was commenting on the important things happening in somebody had posted about stick on nail, Polish and someone quote tweeted it going way to pick up on the ZEITGEIST.

HBO Max removes 'Gone With the Wind,' will add context
"Hbo Max there is a move hbo just launched, and it has a pretty impressive movie library, but one of its biggest movies has been removed from the library very quickly after its launch. Brat. Tell us about that. Yes, the Classic Gone With the wind has been taken out of the HBO Max Library for the time, being. Being after a plea from twelve years, slave writer John Ridley in the Los. Angeles Times I asked them to remove it and that's largely because even the gone with the wind is a Hollywood classic It's been you know in the Zeitgeist for the longest time you know, but it's always been criticized for its depiction of slavery It makes it seem like. Slaves were content in loyal to their owners. And it also had plenty of racial stereotypes, and because of that John Really thought that right now is releasing the best time for movie like that to Hbo Max in that. It should be taken off temporarily, but then brought back. With a discussion on it to provide some historical context, so that people understand that this is not an accurate picture of. The antebellum south before the civil war, and that this is not you know slavery as it is in the history books. In really himself says he doesn't believe in censorship, but he wanted this movie to be. Portrayed responsibly. For their part HBO Max, did take it down and they provided a statement. About the racist depictions, and how they were wrong van in the wrong now they actually borrowed some of the verbiage from a disclaimer that they put in front of some looney tunes that they released a home video because there are some classic animated shorts that have. Stereotypical depictions of people of other races, but they had. I think it was will be. Goldberg did like an Intro to explain it and say were presented them uncut because to. Not present them or present them edited would be to deny they ever existed, and so that's basically what needs to be done with gone with the wind, so I think he's a smart move. Obviously, some people are saying comparing this to like burning books are racing history, but obviously since they're going to bring it back at some point with historical context, that's not the case and people need to grow up. You can ask me anyways. To add that is not censorship. If it's a private company taking it out of their circulation, it's only censorship if it's the government, and this is only the free market doing its work as it's supposed to be so i. just think it's really funny when people pull out the. Censorship, when it's not in fact, falls under that umbrella of

Well in a similar fashion, researchers are turning to twitter for clues about the overall happiness of entire geographic communities. What they're finding is that regional variation in the use of common phrases produces predictions that always reflect the local state of well-being. But removing from their analyses, just three specific terms, good love and L. O. L. Greatly improves the accuracy of the methods. We living in a crazy Kobe nineteen era, and now more than ever will be using social media to adapt to a new normal land. Reach out to the friends and family that become meet face to face. Tokyo Judaica studies computational linguistics at the National University of Singapore but a woods aren't. Just to understand more, we as individuals stinking feed, they are also useful clues about the community we live in one of the simpler methods that many scientists used to parse the data involves correlating words with positive or negative emotions, but when those tallies are compared with phone surveys that assess regional wellbeing. Jessica says they don't paint an accurate picture of the local Zeitgeist to find out why jet got her colleague Yohannes Istat of Stanford University analyzed. tweets from around the United States, and they found that among the most frequently used terms on twitter are ll love and good, and the actually throw the analysis of in fact when we moved the three words alone be managed to improve upon the simple word, counting methods and obtain better, if not perfect estimates of happiness why the disconnect well, Jessica says one issue is in donate languages, really different beast than regular, spoken or language. We've adapted words from the English or capillary to mean things in different situations take for example L. O. L.. I've tweeted the word.

The Future of Restaurants During COVID-19
"But of all the places we like to gather now shutdown by this pandemic restaurants are also some of the hardest hit so today. We're going to talk to people in the industry. The chefs the restaurant tours to find out what they're trying to do to survive for them for us for everyone. I'm Dr Sanjay Gupta. Cnn's chief medical correspondent and this is corona virus fact versus fiction restaurants. Sort OF BOTTLE. The zeitgeist their community. And it's where people celebrate as not just about eating. That's David Chang. He's a chef and the founder of the momofuku group which has restaurants around the world. He's also the host of the Netflix show ugly delicious if food establishments were important. People wouldn't want it so badly. There's just somethin'. That is a connection to just being human besides tasting delicious foods. Chang calls restaurants quote cultural banks and worries about the erosion. This pandemic has had on all aspects of the dining experience. We literally take ninety percent of cash flowing. Give it back to everybody else. On top of trying to make delicious food and build organizations however small they might be no one gets in this business at least that. Iron Meyer so they can make a ton of money they do it because of the life and the positive impact you can have both on yourself and others around you and you that away that that. That's that's going to be pretty brutal closing. His restaurants in March was extremely difficult. He had to furlough around. Eight hundred workers in this week decided to close to of his restaurants reopening others. Maybe even harder. You have to reconfigure literally every decision of how you operate in a restaurant. It was hard enough to begin with. How do you taste food? How you order food. How do you sanitize now? How do you do contact with delivery? You even allowed transaction via credit cards anymore. So now you there's like all of these things now that are going to be expensive. Chang doesn't have the answers yet. But he thinks he knows what it's GonNa take. Define I just think that we're going to need some ingenuity and creativity to sort of align some mutual problems that we have in this country particularly in the food space and sort of reconfigure. How this whole works on his twitter feed. Chang has also been asking people to send him photos of reopened restaurants in cities like Taipei and Hong Kong. It's fascinating to look at them. Some of the photos show. Police Systems delivering coffee. Temperature checks at the door and customers. Even receiving full body disinfectant sprays. Don't worry with their clothes on too many. These measures may seem a little over the top. The common thread is we have to actually make impossible hap and that gives me optimism really genuinely does because these kinds of impossible tasks that sort of her. My brain are what I most attracted to. And we can't have anyone working off a different playbook everyone needs to be working the same playbook every restaurant every business in the absence of a so called restaurant playbook the National Restaurant Association which is a lobbying group is doing what it can to try and offer some guidelines for reopening obviously frequent hand washing some element of distancing some element of face covering certainly reduced interaction between the host. And the guest. That's Larry Lynch Senior Vice. President of Science and Industry at the National Restaurant Association Lynch said it's already begun. Restaurants are already testing out new methods. Everyone's looking visit different ways just this weekend. We saw one of the towns here in Florida. Closed down one of their street to the restaurant. Tours could pull the chairs out into the street. If you're used to going out as being a curated. Dining Experience Lynch describes the post pandemic world as sort of a safety focused obstacle. Course I would say what you're probably GonNa find is before you get there. You're going to look online and look what the instructions are in that particular restaurant what their expectations or. It may tell you to wait outside. May Ask you to place your order online. It may tell you that once you get outside. Send them attacks and let them know. You're outside wait once you're inside. You may wait a bit before the waiter or waitress actually comes up and greets you greeting maybe something as simple as confirming your order rather than taking your order. Once you die. You may find that your table is included as fasces. Wasn't it passed. It's going to be cleared all at once rather than sporadically during the dining experience. When you're dining probably won't see the manager come over to ask how your view was and whether or not you enjoyed yourself. Restaurants are going to have to tailor safety measures to suit their capabilities and it is possible. Not everyone can physically accommodate these recommendations for example Irene. Lee doesn't see her Boston. Restaurant may may hosting sin diners anytime soon. We're a small restaurant so we have about thirty six seats. Which means the possibility of socially distancing inside the building is basically none but Lee. Who was a finalist for this years? James Beard Rising Star Chef Award has still managed to find a silver lining. We are pretty much going to have to change our whole model which sounds scary but is also a really exciting opportunity. So how do we re imagine what a restaurant can be? Water restaurant can do what restaurant staff are capable of Lee in her employees are already starting to answer those questions. For example her restaurant may may is open for delivery and is also hosting virtual dumpling classes. The restaurant is delivering groceries to healthcare workers and selling pantry staples to the community like milk and eggs. The goal to help customers avoid the grocery store because I think supermarkets are going to feel unsafe for a lot of people for a long time and I just think like we have the ability to get almost any of those products probably at a better price at Mamie and so it would be kind of unconscionable to not try to use that to help keep people safer and to make their lives more. Convenient Lee is taking this time to rethink how a restaurant should operate. And she's hoping the industry is a whole does the same especially in the areas where it was struggling even before the pandemic. I think that this is a huge opportunity for us to keep talking about the biggest issue that our industry house which is Labor on the issue of jobs and low wages and like terrible workplace environments. That is always been the bane of this industry. I am hoping that the compensation model could be altered and cross training could become more prevalent. But that's the long term in the short term lease preoccupied with just keeping may may afloat even though she says. The survival of the restaurant isn't her biggest concern. If mamie doesn't exist in in five or ten years that's totally fine with me. I'm going to be really pissed off if there are no cool. Independently owned quirky restaurants to eat at like I cannot eat every day I refuse and so I think that for me. The question about Future is almost a little bit less important but for a lot of people in this industry is all we have one thing I've learned. Is that the restaurant. Industry is full of dedicated creative leaders and is someone who enjoys dining out. I'm optimistic. They're going to find ways to meet the challenges ahead and keep this important part of our culture alive. It's definitely GONNA be an uphill battle but I'm GonNa do what I can to support my favorite places with takeout orders and contributions to out of work employees. They could really use the help

John Doesn't Like Animal Crossing
"Animal. Crossing is a game that came out at the beginning of all this lockdown nonsense that we are taking seriously and is not nonsense whatsoever and where you inhabit human and the town of animals and you can catch fish you can you can. You can grow trees of Fruit. You can go into debt to a raccoon and tell everyone where to live because no one can make a decision except you. I think that's pretty accurate. And also you can fish in it which is Germane to the current conversation. Yeah and also takes place entirely in real time. Yeah it's real time based meeting. Every day is counted as a day in. Munster counted as months. This is a rudimentary explanation. The point being that tomorrow as April first and that means that's a new month and so a bunch of insects and a bunch of fish are going to go away because March has ended. Wait hold on which insects go away the Emperor Butterfly. I don't remember any of the other ones. I'm sorry okay. I think I've got that butterfly. I think I've got that butterfly on lock. Yeah what makes me a little sad as a animal crossing from just the Cultural Zeitgeist on twitter that I have been plugged into some Sasol started. They've been talking about animal. Crossing being this nice relaxing game or you can like kick your feet up. Catch a few fish trade in apron to a deer and get like a tracksuit and return. It's like this nice relaxing time and then all of a sudden yesterday everyone started freaking out because now a fish is gonna go away until December. Yes Oh nine months before you can catch the fish again unless you travel to. Someone who's island is in the Southern Hemisphere. That's an entire baby. John. It isn't entire baby. It's a long time and maybe this is the speaks to maybe a larger philosophical point about animal crossing. But I remember so the first animal crossing when it came out I was a crushingly into I played that game basically every day for like three years. Wow wait the one that came out on the Gamecube. Yeah I did basically everything in the original animal crossing. While was there even to do in the original animal crossing. You know amazingly pretty much exactly the same things there are to do in the new one. That's kind of interesting because the new one and seems like it's newer. It's newer I mean in the original animal crossing. You couldn't travel to other towns as easily. I guess really. It's largely the same except they end crafting but I did pretty much everything in that but when that came out I was a child and now as a fully fleshed man yes as a man of as a man of full flesh as an adult of thirty. I start to wonder now about animal crossing because I'm having significantly less fun and I think a lot of it has to do with like a fear of missing out like if I don't catch this fish I'm not going to be able to have suspicion for nine months Whereas when I was a child those things didn't enter. My mind is like things to be worried about. Yeah I think it's really interesting right now because I played I guess the one that was on the way. I think it was called city folk. And there's a similar thing in that game whereas as the months change different bugs different fish show up and disappear etcetera but now in the wake of this this corona virus landscape where like two months ago. I had diagnosed idea that this is where we would be an effort rooms talking over a voice only Internet p. And like practicing social distancing Texas almost heading toward a lockdown and whatnot so like in nine months what what. What's the world going to be like when I can catch the string fish again and I think maybe that has something to do with people's mania about this fish which by the way? Quick fish tip. I think you can only catch it at the top of a cliff so you need a ladder to get thank Ray The the string fish for those of you. Who Don't know and this is going to be completely useless to you. When this comes out but I can only be caught on the clifftop rivers so if you have an elevated platform or a plateau near the river on your quipped to Catch Yourself. String fish But I think that's something that's pretty interesting that's happening and this is true not only in as as Germane to animal crossing but his true pretty much for everybody is the number of things that we have to care about now is actually pretty significantly truncated. Because we've taken most social obligations out of the sphere of things that we actually need to worry about. So I think honestly if you looked at things I could worry about or could be doing before everything happened it numbered and maybe the low hundreds but now I think the things I have to worry about is maybe eight and one of those things is animal crossing so I worry about a lot more than I would otherwise. Yeah I mean. Remove me from the situation that we're currently in number one. I wouldn't own animal crossing. Yes same probably. Yeah I wouldn't have gone bought this game if I didn't no. I was going to be locked in my apartment for the unknowable future. I would have skipped it over for. I don't know another game Really I only purchased it because I knew what was coming. I was like Oh. This'll be a welcome distraction. But even though I was deeply in love with the original animal crossing and I played the one on the D. S. new leaf. Maybe yeah I think that what was called New Leaf But whatever the DS was I played that But other than that I have not purchased or cared about animal crossing since the release of whatever the second one was so I would not have purchased this game where we not in this situation so really I think without what's going on right now. Neither of US would be this invested in the lives of our animal villagers
Lo Bosworth: From Reality Star to CEO of Love Wellness
"Today. Lobos worth joins us on skimmed from the couch. She is the founder and CEO of Love Wellness. A Body Care Company. That's changing the conversation about self care for women. You may know her name from her time on reality TV shows including the hills and Laguna beach which we all watch. I certainly did but in the past decade low has also made a name for herself as an entrepreneur and a businesswoman. So we are very excited to have you with us. Welcome to skimmed from the couch. Thanks for having me you guys. We're going to start how he start all interviews with just give me a resume for us so for the past four years. I've been the founder and CEO of Love Wellness and two point. We make clean personal care products for women And we also create a lot of really empowering education for women About their bodies so that they know how to take care of their bodies better before that I was really heavily involved in the content creation space and I created a ton of wellness and food content. Just before that. I was actually a student at the French Culinary Institute right injury and we're going to talk about God. It was so good it had always been my dream to go to culinary school. I love cooking. I do love cooking and so a lot of content at the time was sort of centered on wellness nutrition and food before that I was a partner in a different tech startup that failed spectacularly. It was called revelry is irony really this yes so this was like twenty twelve which is when we started. Yeah yeah since you the scam. I remember twenty twelve and we had this idea that we wanted to put cute party supplies all too hard partying a box like a curated experience and it turns out that it's really hard to put thirty different products from different manufacturers into a box and ship it at a cost effective price. The boxes were enormous. I wanted to pivot. But my co-founder didn't anyway didn't workout. Before that I wrote a book that's when I was living in L. A. Still and then before that I was on the hills before that I was at Ucla. And before that I was on Laguna beach before that I was in high school. So that's it so when something that is not on your wikipedia linked in bio that. Maybe we didn't see on TV either that we should know about you. We actually just updated my wikipedia like two weeks ago because Rizzi are publicists was like have you ever updated your wikipedia like no. That sounds like a horrible thing to do for yourself. Right to go on your wikipedia read through it and then be like this is the crazy. I don't WanNa pull up. The old version was pretty cringe worthy. It like went into episode detail on my. How is this relevant off? Wow so when you google then so what do you think is something that is deeply misunderstood about you? I think for me and I have just started to talk to people about this with love wellness. I haven't really done too many interviews or spoken about this company at great length yet and I think for me sort of coming to terms with the transition between being somebody who was on television. And when you're on reality. Tv definitely put into a certain box right. And then if you are an influence or you're put into a certain box and so how do I sort of bridge the gap between living in that space and being taken seriously as an entrepreneur and the founder of business? That's doing really really well. So how do I reconcile that? And how do people that know me from a distance? Reconcile that so. I think that that's something that we sort of talk about often. And I think part of why I'm out doing interviews because I've been working so hard on this for the past four years and we we really feel like we're making a difference and so why wouldn't I want to share that story but it's definitely something that I feel like. I have to still overcome. You know what I mean. Yeah I think that makes sense. So let's get into that a little bit more because we want to talk about your journey from when people started to get to know you to obviously what you are doing today. I love wellness so to start out. I mean as you said you were a high school student and then everything else happened you everything change which is when I think back if someone had filmed my high school experience I would die. Yeah what was it like shoo? Be Not even a young adult like a k. The kid child Yes how old are you when you started well so it was my junior year when MTV I came to Laguna and they were interested in doing something and at that point we were a little unclear on what that was and then I believe if memory serves correct it was like the summer before senior year or senior year that they recorded that first season of Laguna beach and the show premiered my very first week that I was a college student and it was traumatic. It was right within Perez Hilton. Was starting to hop off and all of those blogs if you recall And all of a sudden we were on this show that had instant overnight success and social media didn't exist back then you know. They live because God but facebook was in its first European facebook. And so you know you're a kid you're on this show. You don't have any way to communicate with people in the way that you do now and so people got to know us as we were portrayed on television and yes we were children right and so we tried to do our best to not look stupid so obviously as a kid you look stupid. They were also trying to make you again. That was the of course point of reality. Tv is to make its nonsensically latest story. Yeah I know so as kids you know you have to get parental permission to be able to film. How did you convince your parents let you do this? My mom was not about it but my dad was like this is cool. What do you think like you were going to get out of it? My Dad is a really smart guy and I think from a career Opportunity Perspective. He sought from the very beginning. He was like you could really do something with this. And for years after the fact when people would come up to me in public. I would pretend that I wasn't me because I was so embarrassed. And he was like Lauren. You just have to own this. Why are you so reluctant to just own what you have done and try to use it to your advantage and your dad was saying. I think you could really do something with this. Who What did you think you were going to be when you grow up? Like what was what did he think this could be a platform to do. I wanted to be a doctor actually. I wanted to be a dermatologist or plastic surgeon and I love biology. I think medicine is so fascinating but I'm not great at math and so when I was at school I actually was like sort of on the pre med track but couldn't get through those terrifically difficult math classes. Which is disappointing. But I think it lends itself to my interest in in wellness and health and in general. So it's definitely still a passion of mine. All of that information is really sticky and my brain. It's the stuff that I think about all day long and I really care about. But it's when you get cast on television show and it changes your life sort of derails any plans that you had before looking back at the attention that all of you guys got and now looking at how many people are young in either college or their careers and are blasting themselves all over social media and sometimes that can be a good brand building decisions and sometimes you go into a job interview and I definitely look up of course their profile. And it's not Weiss. What advice do you have for people who are thinking about how to present themselves? I would just say to exercise caution more than anything else. I'm somebody that doesn't go onto instagram. It like wrestling with me to get me to post something on instagram. I don't WanNa do it? It's like when you have five dollars in your bank account. You don't WanNa look in your bank account so I have a very different relationship with social media than I think. A lot of people do of course when you post something and you get likes. It feels good like that experience. I don't think is different for anybody. But for me I think just because of the experience of being on a reality show and feeling so judged for doing something like that and feel like I always had so much more to offer. I'm always a little bit hesitant to put anything out into the universe from an emotional experience that something that you know. I'm still working through. Are you looking back that you agreed to do the show? Yeah it's really not in my personality do stuff like this. I never wanted to be somebody who was like unknown person. You know what I mean. It just sort of happened when Laguna Beach I started. We didn't even know what the show is going to be. We thought it was like you remember that. Show true life we do. We kinda thought it was gonNA be like that. Just a documentary style. Look at kids that lived in this part of the country and then we go away and it didn't go away did not never been away. And so it's just been me trying to figure out how to be satisfied with my life knowing that it'll never go away so obviously we're gonNA reach became. The hills became such a part of the Zeitgeist for this age group. And you're right hasn't gone away and we heard it is weird and the fact that you're like weird. It's really weird. Like I feel like I know you hear you had to develop your career and and essentially your public persona. Yeah after the show. Yeah walk us through your mental state. At this moment you're early. Twenty s at this point yes Early twenties so I guess it would have been like thousand ten right Thousand Eleven. Yes so blogs were just becoming a thing and they were like. It was still really early days on me. Song didn't exist yet. There is that one girl on Youtube. Who do the lady Gaga makeup videos? Michelle fan is like the only person who is influencing the time and so. I know that that age is all of us. Whatever I think for me. I've always loved writing. I've always loved expressing myself creatively and so I started to write. I had my own website for a period of time and just started to create content and actually had some kids that I went to Ucla with like writing articles. Moore's writing articles about stuff and from there. I wrote a book but truly I had no clue what I was doing at that point. I I suppose I didn't realize that what I was doing was actually laying the foundation for my future in terms of content creation. But at that point nobody could monetize their content. And so if you were doing it you're just doing it because you enjoyed it and I want to drill down on kind of what your motivations are at this point. Because was it this thing that I signed up for in highschool took on a life of its own and I now need to make money to a degree. It was about making money but remember at the time. Nobody who's blogging was earning any money. I couldn't see the clear Pathak. I think for me I wanted to have my own voice okay. I think that's what it was about right. I wanted to have some kind of platform where I could express myself and try to get outside of you know the space that I had been in for the past few years and I think that originally that was sort of the
How to monetize and tokenize data Insights from Ocean Protocol
"I'm very pleased to have Bruce Bruce Pond founder of ocean protocol. Bruce could you please give listeners a quick introduction on yourself. Yeah I got into the blockchain space about almost six years ago. So Trent mccown again myself we. We're kind of early to the space in getting excited about bitcoin and Then seeing how the tools bitcoin or the concepts of bitcoin could be applied into nonfinancial use cases like data before that essentially I was this building banks around the world for over a decade in Asia in North America as well as in Europe and that informed a lot of the way that I was thinking about how we could upbraid the financial system and Bitcoin was a strong inspiring on a factor for for us to for myself to jump away from building banks and move into building building infrastructure to unlock data. Brilliant Brilliant. So here at inch long we always ask all our speakers acres first question which is what is blockchain. And how does it work defense he giving a defining it. I given a lot of talks at at multiple levels of abstraction and the best way that I can think about blockchain is it's it's what we call a general purpose technology. There are only about votes thirty to thirty five general purpose technologies that have ever been discovered on earth by humanity and humankind. you start with things like fire higher agriculture domestication of animals. And you go all the way back into this century century before and that is electric occasion. It's the rail system in this decade. We're going to see things like a blockchain bioengineering these types of general stack -nology steady essentially infuse themselves across the entire world. And that's why I think particularly for this podcast. When it was originally geared towards the insurance industry your audience is much much broader because a blockchain is affecting more than just insurance? Because it's it's the holistic view. Just it is all around us whether it's in our devices are machines are cars in the street lighting. It's been integrated enjoying Chhaya world and so at the highest level. The way that I explained blockchain is one of those fancy new technologies that is going to change the world over the next thirty years At a more in depth technical level you could just say that it is a way for us to use technology where you don't need to trust in authority and I saw line interesting concept. I read about it yesterday and it was science in the enlightenment. took us away from believing in authority. The supreme extreme kind of knowledge of authority in when whether whether it was in Or the king. Or what have you. And it made us take a different methodology for understanding the world around us which was the scientific method which was criticism and understanding. This blockchain is taking us away from believing that we need a central intermediary to hold things of value for us like bank like a government or any other enterprise that holds for instance our data and blockchain allows for data to now be held in a way that there is no authority. You control your own data and for me that is probably the most powerful way for people to understand. Is that we question authority now. Now when it comes to holding things evaluators before in the scientific method this this whole trend over the last four or five hundred years is that we question authority for knowledge and so just Internet which came let's Thirty years ago to the general broad public allowed US access to information In a way that was never before possible now. Blockchain is going to allow us to get access to control our own assets in a way never before apostle I'm just not even going to go into the technical aspects. I absolutely love that definition in a clinician. Thank you so much for that. So we've we've had the pleasure of having Trent mcconaughey your your partner. CO-FOUNDER I'd ocean protocol here on blogs but for our listeners who are Aaron Familiar wiz Ocean Protocol. Could you please give us a quick introduction on it. Ocean protocol is the confluence of six years of working in the blockchain space. As I said. We're Kinda pioneers in years in space. Where in two thousand thirteen Trent mcconnachie and his wife Mash Mikan and he came up with the idea of Bitcoin? Is this really interesting. Global database that allows the people to have perfect knowledge about who controls what financial bitcoin right and we said well. This is one of the problems. In Intellectual Property Copyright who owns the copyright who owns the rights to control the distribution of for instance music or books or anything else of of value that is more of intellectual nature so we started a company in two thousand fourteen. Called a scribe to do exactly that to try to put intellectual property copyright trademarks. All these types of things on the Bitcoin blockchain now we we know. We found out pretty quick about eighteen months later that using bitcoin Bitcoin as the transport and storage medium for Meta data for copyrights was not a good idea. BITCOIN is meant to be essentially financial infrastructure actor digital cash and we realized that we needed other infrastructure and this is when all the other hybrid different blockchain started. Come out so a theory we were kind of in that same cohort There was other things Around such as the theory that we kind of gone into Zeitgeist and we created this called Big Jane Devi which was a database that was built on blockchain technology to store meditate. disolve exactly a problem. With a scribe and as we worked in big chain we did about fifty to two hundred industry proof of concepts we realized that. Where does this all lead and thinking taking the bird's eye view once again? We realized that UH who needs data with providence who needs control of their data it is the people either providing data And trying to sell it for the consumers because a is actually sucking up all the data we don't necessarily realize add the normal person just hanging out on the street but everybody viscerally feels else that Google Amazon facebook and a whole bunch of other of these online companies are sucking up the data to feed their Ai Algorithms and and the more sources where you can get data from and not just one source for instance the better your albums going to be and if you can ensure that you know the provenance the ownership the origin of data. Then you have something that can start to change the economic model. Aw for society when it comes to nonfinancial use cases such as intellectual property I just WanNa take segue and say that. In the mid nineties there was evaluation of all the land and all the intellectual property on earth came out about half half so land and was worth multiple trillions and intellectual property was worth about the similar thing. Going thing was we didn't have the proper kind of valuation method for intellectual the property nor did we have the infrastructure to track who owns what and with blockchain we finally have that we both have a financial infrastructure from global borderless payments micro payments as well and we have a global infrastructure to track ownership of intellectual property property and so we think that this is a defining moment for human society where the things that most people are now starting to do the service economy the knowledge economy. Amy is going to be valued in a way. That wasn't possible before and that in a nutshell is ocean. Protocol is trying to make that bridge between the current world. Where if you share something on the Internet it's gone? There's no value other than the knowledge that you can transmit and you have to find other ways to monetize and after ocean port goal which is where you have the providence of the data you have a means of exchanging value and money for that intellectual property and we can build build a new data economy that everybody on Earth can participate
In William Gibsons new novel, AI is actually the good guy
"In a new novel out this week by legendary side. Author William Gibson. The tech is good enough to decide for itself. The book is called Agency it's a sequel to Gibson's 2014 novel the peripheral in that Book Super Technologically Advanced Future Society has figured out how to create new alternate histories called stubs. Either for fun or to influence the timeline leading to their own present. Both books are are ultimately about control over your own destiny and in agency that applies even. If you're not humid. The character UNIS is an advanced. Ai That exists in our are present created by a San Francisco Tech Firm. I asked William Gibson how much of that tech might actually exist. I don't know how close we we are to that sort of artificial intelligence. I just try to pause it a naturalistic version of what what that might be like. If we had it and how we might how we might react to it but and I've been doing that one way or another saids Ed's nine thousand nine hundred ninety one I think one other kind of hopeful element of this is that although there are a lot of like nightmare scenarios far official continuance and bots and virtual assistance the one that you've event it invented assumes her own and essentially is at least in my reading so far in agent for good maybe despite her designers original intent what made you decide that an intelligence like this should it become self aware would would choose to act for humanity. Well for me it was more a matter of why not the opposite scenario. The narrow is clear shade. We used to becoming sky net. We're not used to it. It becoming the good guy. Actually there is some thought that the hot stuff will be hibbard human a I. You know that'll be the really smart one because it will be able to understand us. I mean I guess when you look at it that way. There's a great deal of empathy in this book that if you can understand the challenges of humanity in human way you'll want the best for it. Yes I think. That's let's there just because taking the temperature of the Zeitgeist. It seems to me that that was a ingredient that we could do a lot. More of there are a lot of threads in this book in some way some of it's pretty straightforward. But there's also a lot going on really cool who'll drown tech in Boston dynamics artificial intelligence and alternate timelines and I wonder what do you want people to take away from this this point I have have a yet discovered what it is. There may be something there. You mentioned amphitheater before there may be something about the importance Komo of empathy. I mean I seemed to be trying to tell myself something with a title and that the characters keep using agency in that that sense that we so seldom years it may. We're all perhaps feeling a relative lack of personal personal agency at this point. I was very influenced by that part of the EM forster's aspects of the novel in which he argued that a novelist who is in control of her characters is really doing the work mark. I know you're you're about to tour with this book and possibly in the process. Discover what it's about to you but what is next for you anything else. We should know about well now. One thing that's coming for me as that there's an Amazon series based on the peripheral has been green lit. That's going to be strange for me because one of those things are open ended so I don't know if the series as we'll ever get to agency but now I'm thinking I don't want to find myself in the physician my friend. George R R Martin Martin about himself in of not being able to a lot to be able to write the closing book because there was too much watch going on on streaming television I feel it'll be a fun experience that I really like the people. Yeah in theory you have created a universe in which there are potentially infinite numbers of seasons if every snub is is the season I know man that's true or not. That was one of the reasons that caused me initially to be very very reluctant to go to a multi universe structure. I've done everything I tried in the text books to limit that and you know not not go full forty ready volume multi-diverse which is thing right. It's on Republicans are actually all too much of one. And I think it'll be one more and that will be and then I'll try to figure out what science fiction would look like in the twenties twenties. Our new twenty s coming up
Microsoft taking a $1 billion shot at climate change
"We begin today with the state of the planet which is also the Corporate Zeitgeist of the moment. The fancy executive Shindig in the Swiss Alps known as Davos us is underway today and for the first time a survey of participants in the World Economic Forum Davos official title ranked Climate Change as. Is there top set of business concerns also last week Larry thanks. CEO of BLACKROCK. The world's largest asset manager told business leaders that the company would prioritize more sustainable ainable investing and then on Thursday Microsoft announced plans to become carbon negative by the year twenty thirty and is investing a billion dollars in carbon removing technologies. Microsoft said. It hopes that by twenty fifty it could remove as much carbon as it has generated in its entire forty four year history. Sorry Lucas Joba is the chief environmental officer at Microsoft. And he's here to talk about this plan. Lucas thanks for joining me. Thanks for having me on my. You've pledged to invest invest a billion dollars and also to sort of pivot efforts in the direction of removing carbon and technologies. That can create resilience to end sustainability. But also so literally remove carbon and I wonder what some of those technologies are. Have you identified investment opportunities already. Well I think first and foremost evolution is already already provided some of the most powerful removal technologies of all through processes like photosynthesis. So some of the work that will be investing in. We'll be in what's called nature based solutions through forestation reforestation soil carbon sequestration. But also we'll be looking at Negative emission technologies like direct air or capture carbon capture and storage bioenergy. And what we're really motivated to do is to ensure that the capital that we put out is as additional well as possible is it a venture fund like are you expecting to get financial returns in addition to technology that you can use. We don't expect to. That is not a requirement of the fund. We would never turn that down. I'm sure but we also don't expect to lose money. How do we know so how? Many companies are announcing sustainability initiatives than carbon-neutral initiatives. And it's getting hard to Parse who is doing what you know like. How do we know L. either in the business community or as consumers that? This isn't greenwashing. Well I think it requires diligence on the side of Stakeholders to actually spend a little time. You know understanding what companies are actually doing. I think it also requires a lot of work on the side of corporations to be as transparent and as literal as possible. So there's a reason that we're using the term carbon negative because we are saying is we are going to go below net zero on our overall carbon emissions and we can provide an accounting the thing for that we can provide transparency into the portfolio of payments that were making to remove carbon. I think the best we can do is just to be clear eyed and cold. Aw hearted accountants about this and hold up. Our balance sheets is worth of carbon to be inspected. Let's also talk about incentives. Is this becoming a move like this on some level for every business you know we've seen institutional investors blackrock say. It's going to require. Companies Staff Sustainability Stain ability plans jet blue is going carbon neutral inciting flight shaming as part of the reason. I wonder if some of this is becoming a business. Imperative imperative whether it's to get ahead of regulation or even public sentiment. Oh absolutely I think it's surprising That that businesses can operate today without meaningful incredible sustainability plans. And I do not think there is a significant future. Sure where were businesses will be able to succeed without having plans and being able to show meaningful progress. I think the black rock letter was. It was a nice example. But that's just one of an incredible number of market signals that are being sent from both consumers customers regulators employees more in the blog. Post announcing this you said climate needs to become the world's next moonshot the tech industry. That's a phrase that has bounced around the tech industry but also it's an an industry that has promised to solve big problems should the rest of the industry following this example. I think the rest of the industry needs to do what everybody he needs to do. which is to look at climate and sustainability as what is which is the largest issue the largest most complex challenge that our species has ever faced? If you're a technology company I believe that you should be bringing technology solutions to the market. That does not mean that technology solutions are the silver bullet. It just means that whatever you as an organization are good at. That's what you need to be bringing. And and the urgency has has never been greater and then how about hiring in your blog post you cite not just consumer demand but also employees demand and has this also away. Does this have the added benefit of helping you attract and retain talent for whom this isn't big concern. Most definitely I mean when you look at any poll. In the demographic traffic that will be entering the workforce you know today in the next five to ten years moving forward. This is the number one issue they care about. If you're a technology company like Microsoft is then you're probably motivated by solving big problems with scalable solutions and and if that's your Mo then you've got to have climate and sustainability squarely within your focus and your employees. The more that you do that the more and the better the employee employee base that you're going to be able to bring in. It's just going to be an expectation and rightfully so and then finally just from a business perspective. Oh you know we've seen Microsoft employees already sort of asked the company not to do business to help. Let's say improve. The efficiency of oil and gas companies Microsoft has a seven year deal with Chevron Iran. Is there some possibility that you know the aggressiveness in this arena will make for some awkward dance partners. I don't know about awkward. I think think that these are conversations that need to be had and we are committing as part of our overall announcement to include conversations about an partnerships on sustainability and carbon reduction removal with all of our enterprise customers and major suppliers market sector independent. I think that if you take a scientific or a scientist's view of the problem you leave a lot of the passion and politics politics out of it and you just focus on the job that needs to get done and if you believe Lake we do that. This problem is one. That's going to require solutions. Sion's from everybody from every organization than it would seem strange to be turning your back on any particular Sector or or customer That said you know of course these. These conversations aren't always easy aren't always straightforward. But I think that that is long as you. Just focus on the problem at hand that needs to be solved we. We've always appreciated the partnership model at Microsoft and I don't see that Changing going forward with with any of our of our existing or future customers. Lucas Topa is chief environmental officer at Microsoft. Thanks so much for talking with me. Thank thank you molly.

Ill-Fitting Intimates? After 2 Years of Research, CUUP Definitely Has Your Size.
"Set out to start cop with one thing that I think is really a special about the team is everyone. We've got this team of cross functional experts and everybody really came in with a kind of a neat curiosity around whatever it was That kind of lead them to the brand essentially cup. We wanted to set out because we couldn't find a Bra that women didn't have to compromise with meaning. You can find a Bra. Aw that maybe fits you. Although that's pretty limited on we'll go into that or you can find a Bra that might support you but it chances are it doesn't look good good and essentially you have to compromise between one of those things so we set out. How can we create a product that is you never have to? Compromise is between fit function and style but then also with looking at the current Zeitgeist of where we are from a brand perspective Tiv- and UNHU women want to identify as and how we want to identify in terms of our sensuality. And what we're looking for from an intimate brand so we just saw a really big opportunity from a product perspective from a building a community perspective and then like a brand position perspective as well. What's what's behind the that compromise that's existed for? I'm guessing a pretty long time. Wh Why is there a compromise in most into these products. This is a very interesting space in category. That has a lot of issues. I think some of our quite apparent to consumers and some are not. I think I think a lot of the brand positioning of some of the large market place. Incumbents is very apparent to customers and the consumers in terms of being out of sync with the current guys. I think there's some other issues that are not such as how bras designed and manufactured factored that have led to some real structural issues that will translate into a pretty underwhelming customer experience. And so for for us. It was trying to fix the thesis of what we wanted to do on. Paper sounds quite easy right. Great looking product. That works is supportive. Would've with a brand story. Well told executed well. Direct to consumer to executed is really hard and a lot of those issues. Do Emanate from the supply. Chain in how bras are designed and built. These are very complex to make there. Are there's multiple parts in ABROA- and you're solving for fit. Where are you really trying to solve for perfection right in terms of if you go to white t shirt it can be fit forgiving? You can have perfectly mold to your body. Where a bra you dealing with an infinite amount of body shapes and sizes and to really have a good customer experience and he's a fit really well? It'll look good and that's really hard to do. They're very technical technical. And so that was sort of the interesting thing to try to figure out how to unlock and it's very challenging to do so. We have forty sizes and we're kind of scratching the surface and I think that says everything versus shoes right just in terms of the dozens of the multitude of different body shapes and sizes is if you want a service. The market appropriately. You need to have a real breadth in sizes and that's hard and I think you see that in a lot of brands today Eh. especially new Lebron's but a lot of also the old incumbent brands have a real narrowness in sizing because it's hard to do and that leads to unfortunately Louis again a pretty underwhelming experience for customers when you can't find a Bra that looks good in your size. So it's Kintu shoes in terms of you need lots of sizes you just need infinitely more and on the there's also one of the things we saw to kind of unpack like style. Aesthetic in shaping trend as well and support is like. We're we're changing in terms of how we want our shape to be position changing in terms of close where there's a big kind of trend. That's maybe moving a little bit like norm core in some kind of industries and fashion but but also like in Bras like we're as women embracing our natural shape and feeling really great about that and that's kind of the uptick you've seen in the brawl at trend and it's something that the structural thing is abroad let over what's abrupt. Uh sorry so a Bra let is essentially a bra of a piece of fabric. That's a lot more technical than the traditional Braga Armitt Traditionally without under wire and it set to kind of minimize and really started a trend that was allowing to be shown underclothes and be kind of like an accessory three to your outfit versus something. That's just supportive and kind of hidden which was traditionally the Bra prior to that. So essentially. We're seeing this trend umbrella and women to embrace their natural shape and not be squeezed or pushed up and an essentially that. The BRA doesn't support over decoupled larger. Just functionally he doesn't work for women in those who who have bigger breasts so essentially Being able to create something that fits on that trend and allows to kind of embrace that natural shape actually supports work with something that we really cared about as

The Las Vegas shooting happened on the night of October first. Two thousand seventeen shooter opened fire on a crowd of concert. Concert goers one thing that I hadn't or that my memory hadn't quite gotten about that is I mean so. This was sort of the nightmare scenario for anyone who worries about guns N.. Just how readily accessible they are and how easy it is for somebody to build up an arsenal. Is that you you know. The person was shooting from a great distance. So it's very difficult to locate new shooting with automatic weapons into a crowd. So I mean just just the worst case scenario respect but I hadn't. I thought that they like kind of immediately. Figured out where he was in like came for him but they found him dead in his room an hour after the shooting like they hadn't gotten to him while he was still alive like I. I knew that I thought he had shot himself as they were storming his his room. Yeah it was an hour later like so. That's that's how powerful these weapons are that like. He was just off in the distance somewhere. Mr Nobody could figure out where it was coming from for an hour. And Yeah I remember the conspiracy. Theories were riot because I mean and it's also the perfect storm in that he we still don't have a motive right like we do. We know that he was wanting to do this. Just kid researched different locations where there was going to be a crowd. He had even rented hotel. Rooms like above lollapalooza above another concert in Chicago in Chicago and then also head Rented and stayed in a hotel room in Vegas Goose for a period but didn't carry out the attack and then just a eventually did. But he he had been googling terms from mid-september such as SWAT weapons ballistics chart three hundred eight Swat Las Vegas and do police use explosives so oh wow like. He was super premeditated. Who the fuck knows like what infected this guy's soul and made him just decide to do this but that makes it a perfect storm? For conspiracy theorist all the false flag. Shit that came out was I just really awful especially considering the amount of like fifty nine people were killed and hundreds were injured and so on the second of October and obviously this is an equivalent.

So it was just. They're bigger story. Is that this can happen at all But I mean it was a low position military targeting in some old guys g mail. It's not like yeah. Of course they can do that. The larger story the larger story is that we've we've lowered the discourse to the point that like candidates can just accept the aid of a foreign hostile power. Yeah but it's just like everybody's doing everything in their power to not look at that because they gotta both sides of the ship or its surprised that like you know not that the Media would be this honest. It'd be like Whoa the thing that we do happen to us right. Yeah yeah whole. Wow yeah that's been happening. That's right you'd like to do this shit all the time.

The music in there was really cool. I'm GONNA I think I'm gonNA listen to that. I'll be interested to see what this movie's Legacy is like twenty years down the line because it's there was such a backlash I think deserve deserve a backlash a little bit. That like some people are just way too into it and then people were like. Oh this movie like the main character. There's just a lot of Shit Shit that's whack about those. I think it also cap slates. How a lot of like white people were like taking in reality right? Yeah of all the movies you could have got behind your I love. What about fucking moonlight right? No no no no no. No Moonlight is dance dance dance happy. Dance Dance Yeah. I don't Wanna I'm your about what it's like to be all on to say that white people were living in La La land before the two thousand sixteen election might be too on the the nose. But I'm going to go ahead and say it doctor strange as my second movie I never even saw shit you I saw part of it on the plane just to see what's her face. Ace Be an Asian person rate Tilda Swinton Tilda Swinton the ancient one or something that you one they were like.

But I gotta rival arrival in the top five I get a dead pool. Is Up there. cabinet America's civil war which makes sense what was hell or high water. Is that anywhere. Where for you That was the bank heist one. Yeah I I watched it like that. It was fine him. I didn't I mean the fact that I even sat down down. Put the DVD in rape means that I was invested in seeing it right like any 'cause most of the time I don't go to the movies a lot I'll I just watched screeners. So that's when it gets very selective rate but I did watch that. 'cause my mom was I like it. Yeah Mike Okay well. y'All y'all take that to the Bank Moana is way up there for me Not We're not it's not zootopia level but it's you know define the Zeitgeist. Apparently that you remember when we started the show and I was like Manmohan is a big deal for these kids yeah. Where'd that go I think it's still there. I just think it's been you know frozen as if I was claiming Moana was the new frozen though because like all kids under the age of ten knew all the words Moana but turns out frozen is the new frozen Z.. Because I can't even say I know that frozen is let it go right. Can't off off instinctively say was the Milanez. Yeah you need a song. Yeah What would for you of these movies? Did you actually like person. Because I know we're saying that's number one for me for people were confused. That's what Google is serving us as a result. Yeah not our ranking rankings. I mean moonlight I think is actually. I'm GONNA GO LALA. Land at Phnom. Moonlight was incredible. I mean that's just yeah towering piece of Art Yeah I would probably go with finding Dory finding good finding dory and I mean it speaks speaks to the collective Amnesia of our culture thank you. That's exactly that and then of in second suicide squad right. Yo- Suicide Lewisite squad came out this year. Also Batman Versus Superman. What were they thinking? ooh What a run man from from the DC universe yeah What did the accountant was Ben? Affleck as Ben Affleck that movie completely disappeared so some movies that completely disappeared from the national consciousness I Jeanne sully didn't completely disappear stories. Still a big deal but like I feel like that nobody's quoting. Nobody's quoting sully. Nobody saying on the sully now but Yeah I would say the. The accountant is one of those movies that just completely disappeared the B F g the big fucking giant Jason born I forgot. There was a newborn move. Oh Yes star trek beyond the Nice Guy. Yeah Yeah there's a star trek movie and it was a flop I remember. People were like Chris Pine Star Trek Movie. Not that one Yeah there was a Chris Pine Star Trek movie that I think the third warcraft is one of those movies. I think we've talked about before arable was a big hit overseas overseas and nobody washed it here I at the time I was just starting to work Conde Nast and we did a like a like a junket for warcraft and there were some interactions between the cast members that were so there was something going on between those cast members. They didn't like each other. They didn't like each other or there were a lot of her. It was weird like it wasn't like anything else where people were just talking about their film. There was a lot out of passive aggressive energy. New can you got this stuff out only to be only to be revived on a podcast years later yeah There was a newborn movie that I think is completely disappeared from people's memory Sing completely. I remember the posters. Yeah that's that's the big one with kids not as what Sing Street. Sing Street is from the dude who made WANNA think. Okay maybe yeah yeah. Did you watch sausage party. No I did parchment. No I like the idea that. What wasn't there like something where you you? People only had access to the reality that their food was alive when they were high or something like that. I honestly the second I realized like it was just go weird adult thing with blame. Dick Jokes like all right. I'm going Mosey on out So I don't know those. Those are the movies of the year. Nothing really jumps out to me other than moonlight like nothing is like a lasting thing that people are going to be talking about decades from now maybe finding Dory finding doors at great great sequel I loved that I like that before I even had kids and then I just washed it with my son on recently and it was a blast. Okay in terms of kind of what people were searching. What was trending that year POKEMON Mongo pouring man to above donald trump in your face trump. I remember when like there were videos of people like running through send right heart on the strength of rumors creatures being there. You'll what the fuck are you doing. Yeah and then.

I took exactly one walk walk through a city with somebody. Who's doing the pokemon thing I was like? I can't I can't be friends with with people who are well. I think it's one of those things like we I think i. I think it's safe to say I can speak for you that we both don't really fuck with POK MON in that like we don't know anything about it. Yes I'd from maybe a couple of characters. And then they did. I didn't play the Gameboy game and like for those people who really who who fuck with the universe ray was fine but also like trying to give me outside right now you about that. How about that There were So then there was the election That I I'm just I. I like looking back at the Time magazine. Like where they were at with this. At the end of twenty six it was the quote October surprises that ultimately it came to dominate the story of the twenty sixteen election. Trump's came in the form of a leaked access. Hollywood tape and Hillary Clinton's came when the FBI Director James Comey went to Congress. Updating the status of the investigation and it never quite disappeared So I mean interesting..

She just looked like she had taken a different person's face and put it on. Yeah is just looks like a different person. I think it's I I think that's the issue right. Is like you take something like like celebrity culture. And how it's like hyper threading. Is Everything so yeah. It's a toxic equation. Outcomes will always be toxic right.

Nightmare alternate history so this is a kind of a dark year Dark couple years Ebola outbreak was this year. The Malaysian flight that disappeared appeared happen this year. We've talked on a past episode of TD's e but this is one of those stories that I think the the energy from the media was behind maintaining the mystery. They were like it's so mysterious like we never know like disappeared into thin air and we actually know what happened up into the plane There is an Atlantic kind of deep dive into it and they know where it crashed based on like You know debris that washed up on shore awesome like tide patterns. They have a rough idea of where crashed. They also know like where it was right before it would have run out of fuel and it was like over the south Indian Ocean And they also know what happened to the pilot Did it on purpose. I I mean we don't know why. Necessarily he was like going through some tough things at home. But he was a veteran pilot in his fifties and he had a flight simulator simulator at his home that he ran like thousands of flight simulations on and the one of the last ones he ran or the very last one was the exact flight path that they think the plane took before it crashed so he it was such a mystery to at the time. There were so many theories about what happened. But I think they're part of it to like it. I activated a weird part of people's imaginations. I think too like there was something something really interesting to people at the time. When they're like what really could have? Yeah and I think that's still like they're still like think that it just disappeared into thin on air. I mean there's been I blame lost. There's well there's lost but there's also been like a USA show where it's like. This flight disappeared in the eighties and then just landed edge and like other fucking movie from the eighties or something.

That whole movement became like mega twitter and Maggie Like the online trump hive. Well the yeah well. The Zoe Quinn thing happened in two thousand fourteen eighteen also. Oh it did.

"The end of a decade and actually look back on all. We've accomplished all we built on the precipice. Twenty ten mike. I'm twenty six and twenty any ten. Why this is like when you really look at all this? I'm like I have fully formed memories and attitudes on all of this stuff. This is actually a very big year for me. In twenty any ten is my last year working in politics. Okay and was the year that I had decided to completely start over moving with my mother and try and do something with comedy eighty So it's weird to think like Sorta back some of these stories some of them with my past life. Yeah this was When I was living in New York ORC for one year with my lovely wife and We've released a book through cracked. We released a bunch I think after hours has launched then or was just launching a lot of good times. Those guys released a book. What was it called You might be Zombie. Oh Right Yeah New York Times bestseller. Have that cross sign next to it on the best seller list sales with a dagger way. Were you who Anna. I was in college looking back social time. I guess maybe should we start with. I wear wife social media facebook. Update that you had. Yeah I can try and find one mine was great. I had a post from beginning of twenty ten. They said Oh. Thank God for being back to good standing at. Uc Davis that's right. I had a few months to good standing elite Davis guys. You know sometimes drugs take a hold of your mind and you start to failure classes but I guess what you can come back from comeback. A huge success in the entertainment industry like super producer. On a hosea. Assure Queen of Comedy Booking Queen of the podcast world I have one update was this is in November of twenty any ten right before the elections. And it says I've been in Nevada for five weeks you. This was to say that you made you made one of the time top ten stories of every or like top ten of everything. I can neither confirm nor deny talking about how will be extra cagey aged right. And I won't say anything which is saying something because you're usually super cagey. I'm yeah I'm Nicholas Cage Cagey Let me see see I had. I barely posted anything back then But I want to picture of me and my lovely wife in a what's a country. America America the United States. We're we were in lease Bong team team. Picture of the cracked team Aunt okay one thing. I tweeted AH posted on facebook back then. Our book made the Bestseller List. I realized calling me New York Times bestselling author Jack. O'Brien seems like a mouthful. He'll be able to read it right off my hat and belt buckle that was cracked belt buckle. I did not. I have a New York Times bestselling author Jack. O'Brien belt buckle. Wait really no. Oh I have another weird status update. This is Tom Morello's mom is D- Jiang on KPFK PF K ninety point seven months. Really tweet back the status updates on twitter really like that at this point further the for the for the gang F. B. All right. Well let's get into what was happening with the rest of the world. Yeah the we were oblivious to because we were doing our thing thing in the year two thousand ten there was an oil spill. You'll hear about this of Was it the Horizon Horizon Water Harass Great Phil autre horizon Great Film Os based on Your Life. Just a fan of the movie it was Walberg. Said if he was there he would have been able to kill file spill punch the fire he would punch the fire and save everybody one one of the most remarkable things so the way I went back through so we should just say up top. I did two thousand ten two thousand eleven. So I'll be taking you through the events of that year based on my cursory googling And one of the things that I notice so one of the ways that I went through was looking at times review like year in review. You from the end of two thousand ten like what. They thought was notable about the air and they covered the tea party like it was the wave like it. It was cut like this. The Raza Tea Party was there number two top ten stories of the year and they were like you know backing O.. Ate The we thought it was everything was going left but now things have changed the tea party. The a disparate collection of anti-big government activists and heartland conservatives. They do acknowledge that it has the backing of wealthy patrons Lake Charles and David Koch but they don't specify that it was fully astroturf by them. Am right cynical ploy. The Day Obama was being sworn in the coke brothers had a meeting of million and billionaires at a golf course where they were like. How are we going to take this motherfucker down while he's going to be bad for our fortunes That was not evident people back in two thousand ten. But there's a great book called dark money about like the whole movement and this was I mean it's really a conspiracy. They like had people at these. AH AT TEA party rallies with like signs that were written by Coke brothers and like the people with the same wording on the same signs and like the same misspellings which show up in different cities because they were downloading a file. Yeah mation on like weird takes to have flyer gats and flags yup. It's all a man that was such A. Oh this is so disheartening to I think this is when we The work that I was doing a lot of it was around obamacare and watching this weird ass movement of people dressed up as fucking old. Timey tea party for the Boston. Tea Party attorney should have borne out back dressing powder way just weird forty to fifty year old white dude. There was something really odd about doubted. Because anytime you spoke to somebody who was like a tea partier. It was someone who was probably not realizing that they hated that. The president was black right. And we're or maybe I Seduced by these big government themes I think essentially then you wake up your own right. I'm I'm just I'm a racist that's right and they figured that out by the year two thousand eighteen gene but Two Thousand Sixteen. I guess but yeah. So there's summary of the tea party movement ends with the sentence spurred on by some of the more influential clincial and telegenic personalities in the US like Sarah Palin and Glenn Beck the tea party may be here to stay can I. It wasn't a little aside in as a high school project. I went to one of those weird technology high schools where there was no no tests. You just do projects but one of the projects was that you basically put together a campaign and ran for president in your class on everyone. You built a party. You basically major own party like you you assign people like there. Was this press secretary. That was a person running the person who's GonNa be vice president and all that stuff and me and my group. We called ourselves the Boston and tea party. And this was in two thousand and so after that when they came out we were all like mothers who I do not want people thinking we are anyway but it was like this merch but it was. It was texting all my best friends who still friends with now being like Oh God and to think the well you know I guess the Coke Brothers all your data gratitude and here. Here's me sending out my regards. That's right to the coat brothers to make everything very dated. I'm GonNa read you. The top ten buzzwords Leno if you remember Zella Ios the horn that was being played in South Africa and Band top kill slash junk shot slash static kill slash top hat. What is that from? I don't fuck that. I think that was video game slang. But I'm guessing what Time magazine managed to just totally fuck it up. The I don't know what the fuck that yeah bedbugs. Big was that like the New York Book was getting cracking Austerity with Buzzword apparently because we were just throwing money at Wall Street Right Yes oh sorry you fucked up the economy. Do you want more fuel Joke Kill the Icelandic volcano. That's okay What's your did anchor? Babies was one of the buzzwords. Cool Mama Grizzlies Elise crack in it. Wasn't Mama grizzly something. Sarah Palin said I think so. Yeah Yeah released. The crack and fun sometimes wasn't released crack from. I think it was a movie that came out that year pirates. It wasn't pirates of the Caribbean. It was like Liam Neeson was it was it was. It was like right after Avatar. They made a big deal about the fact that it was three d. but it was like a a half ass clash of the titans clash of tighten. The cracking guy remain djawadi. The Dude who scored a game of thrones. It's scored that film. Oh Hell Yeah. There's all sorts of weird dated Shit that I can't believe happened that year.

Leno's the top ten late night jokes and because it's time Egland they're trying to make. Yeah they're they're trying to both sides it. They have a joke from Jay Leno. You know hard to believe. President Obama has now been in office for a year and it's incredible. He took something that was in terrible terrible shape and he brought it back from bringing disaster. The Republican Party weren't like the organism Republican Party racism. mm-hmm oh so because he's black and is president. The Republicans have woken up yet. Basically my life Jay Leno. Oh man got guys that was really like just looking back at a time when he was a major figure in the media like he seems the must out of place just like weird dated Wi fi like because this was when his feud with Conan was popping off so he was still in the news. Somehow what was it. CONAN team Coco Conan took his slot and then but Jay Leno didn't and then he got it back right because like Kuhnen just did it. I actually I'm not feeling this. No it was Conan head been promised the tonight show like the crown jewel of late night And he like that was his dream from the beginning but he had been promised at like in six years Leno would retire in the year. Two thousand ten and and then And then he took over the ratings. Were like not great middling because all TV ratings were middling at at the time and they were like we'd better higher Leno back so they brought in Leno to do a ten o'clock like tonight show ahead out of Conan and moved Conan back an hour and it was just like a really terrible he should have ever took in the t the tonight show. I just remember being like your humor is for that twelve thirty late night slot Conan. Yeah like Conan's humor is not for the old people who who are used to seeing Jay Leno right and you could tell the writing change to there's sort of like damn. I was so bummed when he went to TBS and just like basically did another late night show and now I think he's like with the podcast and like the show evolving but it just felt like it was like this same format that was kind of inhibiting to him but like he was so committed to it because he grew up on it. But he's like so fucking funny that like He. I feel like that platform only hold him in in his writing staff. That's fucking incredible. His podcast is good so check it out all right. We're GONNA take a quick break. We'll be back to wrap up two thousand ten and get into the year. Your two thousand eleven..

Party of ex-Chancellor Kurz wins Austrian election
"Welcome to the briefing we begin by turning our attention to Austria where former Chancellor Sebastian Courts as won a general election and in convincing fashion snap election was called following the collapse of the previous government made up of the People's Party of Mister Courts and the far-right Freedom Party hardy video had revealed the Freedom Party's openness to Russian influence. Peddling courts will now have to choose between shifting left or going back to his former allies in the far right party to form a new government for more on this. I'm joined by tests should covets. UK Correspondent for Austria Profile magazine Tessa. Thank you for joining us and and welcome back to the show Were you surprised at all. I don't buy this results. I think everyone was surprised because the opinion polls before forty elections showed a better resort for prognosis for the far-right what happened I think in the last weeks before the elections was that the far-right Freedom Parthiv got involved. There were some revelations about expense scandals around the leadership and former former head of the party has gone and that further dampen their the the results so a combination of the bitter video scandal from May with these new revelations just kicked him off the chances to return to government as the logical partner that for Christian for Sebastian quote what's so we will see now in long probably difficult coalition negotiations if he indeed will to the Green Party as coalition nations partner. I want to come back to that expensive scandal you mentioned but you are right. The Green Party did surge which is quite curious here sort of square in the middle the People's Party the Conservative Party is the Social Democrats as well which is quite curious. The Conservative Party gained a lot of ground far right lost ground obviously because of of that scandal but with the performance of the Greens does that put into question where the former chancellor is going to look for a new partner in in his coalition while he's definitely the successful populist he managed to gain votes though his previous coalition was failed completely in renewing Australia sort of fear contract with the people in the future so they just had to resign after eighteen months and still he comes out as the one who is the staple prime minister that people trust again to form another government so that's the first thing so the second thing is that the Zeitgeist has changed a little bit in the last two years so the last elections refund on a tough immigration stands after the refugee crisis resulted in strong anxieties in the population this time we're sort of in the middle of Friday's for future a frenzy people thinking about the climate catastrophe more than about the the consequences of immigration could try to push the immigration a topic in all conversations or interviews during during the election campaign but in fact the resides in the success of the green pod shows that the younger voters want something else than the constant immigration debate so they turn to the Green Party and a lot of people in the middle of the society also thought that they wanted some kind of the more open minded and more progressive stance on questions like immigration European Union and end climate and those people voted either green or for this small Liberal Party which was also quite successful. Do we have any indication of which way ah the former chancellor is leaning here for his Coalition Party as he say sort of it is a popular thing now more people are thinking about the climate obviously climate change rather more people voted voted green so he's quite young guy as well not only in age but in his political experience so may he be more curious to to shift left in in building and continuing to grow on his popularity he might and this is a big test now for him as a politician because he was very quickly quickly turning to become one of these right wing populace strongmen tough on immigration and constantly talking about political Islam. I am in how to sort of restrictor these influences in Australian in his Austrian homeland and artists sixty. You know the rhetoric from other other right wing politicians in Europe to now. He has the chance to move back to the middle and do a coalition with the Green Party ideologically. Lee I think this will be quite difficult for him because he has always said that he felt comfortable in the coalition with defy red because they shared a lot of his reform plans and also this anti immigration stance now we will see what he will do and it will be a a very big test also for the Green party because they are much more progressive much more welcoming to immigration much more open minded and in then Sebastian could so for them to go into coalition is quite dangerous too but it's now the moment where Australia has decided and where the Green Party ends passive quits mainly mainly those two have to decide if they want to prevent the fire to come back from into government or not and we will probably see this by the end of the year beginning of next year only the results so the next week will be quite interesting Tessa. Thank you so much for this just fits their

I don't know how much uh-huh cotton coffee is like one hundred thirty or something like that. Yeah Okay Got Caffeine expert here yeah so I mean so. What's I mean.

There's something odd about caffeinated yogurt in general to me. I don't know I think the I think it sounds convenient read. It doesn't get coffeenated version Iran. It's fucking really really bad. I mean it's like passable. You know what I mean like. I get it if you're like so fucking every Sirkin Wildlife Book and counts on Shit Fuck and drink soy lint that's absurd.

If you WANNA show people you really don't care about your child's future and then they have like hot sauce packets for men and women. There's a body version or depends on. If you WANNA thought it up you can make a little more thought or you can be in a little more generic sauce packet version then I it kind of started looking at what people are talking about in terms of this shitty costumes. There's a hot Mr Rogers. Is there any other type of Mr. That's true okay point taken that is basically like daisy duke shorts and red sweater and like in like a playmate caller with a tie with did he rock a tie. I don't know this is what they're calling it. I can't I in my mind. It just shows typical purpose also wearing high heels where like his whole thing was that he would sit down and take his sneakers off. Yeah well look comes. We'll probably take those off and then there's another one I thought that was a dress that had dollars printed on it and it just said tariff paint on the political cost. Do it must be but it's like a little cartoon like one of those things that like it has like a bag with elephants sitting on it and it's like the country right like all the tariff right.

So this is from a study from some place, called tick pick Britain now story, the Leonardo decaf story is not is not from it is just as headset rumor that's been around forever. Yes. But there's so that's what that's what fees into this story. Right. So tick pick they did a quote unquote study. I'm not sure how sound this is. But again, this is a segue podcasts all for who we make sound puns. Exactly. You're so anyway, what they did was. They said they serve survey two thousand ten people online via Amazon's mechanical Turk on. That is of the one thousand ten participants polled. The dude who was in a robot costume who beat people at chess, like back in the day. Oh, comecon. That's a great great booth mechanical Turk. Wow. Wow. So illiterate of history that people are just like dying. They're like, oh my God. This robot was kicked by. Fifty four percent of respondents or male forty five or female point four identified as non binary medicinally, fifty nine point two of the sample identified as millennials Twenty-eight were gen-x, ten were boomers and the remaining one percent were jen's e or the silent generation of the Senate generational older than Joe baby boomers be. And did you say gen Z has slept with Leo? No, no, no. People who actually although retirement. Okay. No. These are just respondents the thousand people. Yeah, I guess that's what they call the greatest generation is the silent. Silence. I didn't know that. I broke showed Ray. Ray version. So, yeah, these are the see there's some of the stats that they have now we're taking this entire fucking bowl of salt, but they said songs of satisfaction fifty percent over sponde- were satisfied with their sex life overall now, breaking it down by genre. Country. Music fans sixty six point three percent were satisfied with their sex the most satisfied lose sixty four percent. And they said at sixty sixteen minutes on average blues fans lasted the longest in bed jazz at sixty three point two. Sure. Get it give it up to muddy waters. Right. They say the another stat hip hop. Rap fans least likely to give oral sex did not true busy overly. I'm eating at all. Hometown buffet. Are you mixed though? Yeah. But that doesn't mean I can't like hip hop. I make sure oh no no. I'm, I'm hey, look eating aint cheating, what they say. If you're MC Chris, that's an MC. Chris album. Okay. I don't show. They say nearly. So a folk fans nearly one in four folk fans had cried during sex. Does that make sense? I don't want to jump to stereotypes, but I guess, like someone is so overcome. I'm hoping that's what it is. Because I've been in situations where people are like emotionally overcome or overwhelmed by orgasm folk song that give me a an example. Your. Yeah. Yeah. No pin and nothing nothing. I mean listen to music while you're having sex and that's the music. You're listening. Yeah.

Like, what is the cosmic Christ are, honestly, okay? I think actually maybe that Stangl wish be taken. Let's see what crime means in this context, and maybe that's what I'm trying to figure out because if it's like the music, I'm like, damn you were really feeling that whatever album, I don't have experienced with women crying. But they're always laughing when we have sex, I think that that's like cool to. Let's his you're playing the Dane cook album. Which is ironic. You call it harmful. If swallowed in pointing. Yeah..

"So without further ado here is the weekly zeitgeist. What is the is? Underrated something I've really gotten into recently as reading the print newspaper. This is we like are all consuming more news than ever like online. I like how organize information in a way that's a little like easier to know. What's important? What's not on the internet? Sometimes everything feels like an equally sized piece of information and the newspaper. It's like here's the front page. Like, here's the stupid show. You don't have to worry about edit. You also have the feeling of being done at some point which is. The internet where it's like, oh, you've read everything paper you can throw it away. Now, imagine scrolling to the bottom of Twitter one day. And you're like, wait. Yes. I've read everything right? Does the world. What a what print publications are you subscribing to I read the LA times the never heard of? And I get it this. I I really love because you know, I'm worried about it like piling up in my house and like tipping over to me up. And so I get it. Like, you would if you get it at your house. It's up the New Yorkers to any. Oh my God. So I get it to liver till like the cafe near my house. So I can like go get read it there. I feel like it's a new like trying to get like Bodega lifestyle. Yeah. Like living in New York. I didn't even know that was an option of you. I just asked. I was like is this. Okay, arlen. Yeah. Guess. They probably thought I was setting up some weird alibi. Right here where my newspaper gay can can you hold this photo right now. And also can't be point to the clock. Okay. Cool. Thanks. I probably never be back. You can keep all the newspapers. Yeah. No. I totally feel you on like the having the information organized for you. I subscribe to the Sunday New York Times and just having a front page to like read all those stories and feel like, okay? Those were the most important stories of that week to like people who are paying attention to the news is kind of a good good tool, and you get t- magazine. I go right to t- magazine. I love that. It weighs fifty exact. I don't know if there's anything that's not an ad. No. Yeah. Why what is t- magazine? I've only seen the cover of it. And just giant the binding is like like three dimensional thick. Yeah. Like when you pick up the Sunday Times. And it's so heavy that's all any match. Yeah. Mostly t magazine. What something people think is true, you know, to befalls I do show about a l a podcast about like LA news called LA podcast. And we talk a lot about housing and homelessness stuff that is like a huge deal. Now, a pretty much every major city now, and they're so many myths around that and the one that I think probably comes up the most is that it's really expensive to house homeless the alternative like the thing that's keeping homeless people from being housed is cost. When really what's super expensive? As what we do now, which is let people live on the street. So they go to the emergency room every day. They go in and out of jail batch is really really expensive. Right. It's cheaper to just provide homes for people. Yeah. That's all. And we have a lot of money available to actually tackle this problem. But we're kind of running into a lot of neighborhoods where people are having quite realized that this is actually a good solution to homeless. Innis, and they just see people like, you know, there've been town hall meetings where people are screaming down homeless people who've gotten back on their feet from like support housing bureau. We don't care about your story. Whatever they think there's like there's like a whole pushback in the city to where we have the money to do this. Actually, it's been it's all there. We just have to find the places to do it. And yet true like there's no harder place to try and recover. Whether you have mental illness or something else going on doing that on the street. Right. You know what I mean?.
William Friedkin: 'The Exorcist'
"Hi, I'm Seth Abramovitch senior writer at the Hollywood reporter. And I'd like to welcome you to it happened in Hollywood. It's a new podcast. I'll be hosting with the help of my good friend. Chip pope. Hi there. That's me. I'm chip I'm a TV writer and a pop culture enthusiasts in each episode. We're going to be taking a journey backwards and time and revisiting some of the wildest chapters in Hollywood history iconic films zeitgeist TV shows infamous lawbreakers and just the random weirdness that color the place. We call LA La Land. Yes. And we think that you'll find in Hollywood the more things change the more. They stay the same. And that's what this show is about on each episode. We're going to be going to a key figure in whatever topic recovering and interviewing them. And then after the fact Seth, and I will comment on those prerecorded interviews, so let's get right to it. Welcome to the first episode of Hollywood. All right. Let's do some scene setting its December nineteen seventy three Richard Nixon one month before told a room full of reporters in Orlando, Florida. I am not a crook. Well, I'm not a crook. And in movie theaters. Cross the nation. Robert Redford, Paul Newman were playing crooks in a blockbuster hit called the sting. Then this thirty eight year old wonder canned Billy freed Ken comes along riding high. Having just won the Oscar for the French connection in seventy two. I love that. He's thirty eight year old wonderboy because the industry in nineteen seventy three's run by nine year olds he's young blood at thirty eight. He is he's whippersnapper and -ticipant for his chosen follow picture to French connection is at a fever pitch. His choice was the exercise. I now this was a big budget adaptation of smash hit novel about a little girl who gets possessed by the devil. The film was plagued by infighting delays. It went way over budget. He acted kind of crazy firing people left. And right people thought there was a curse on it yet. There was supposedly occurs. And there was all kinds of reports that this thing is going to be disaster. But when it finally came out, it became the all-time record breaking movie from Warner Brothers at the box office and went on to become one of the most admired and imitated horror films of all time. It's interesting that you should mention the sting because that was just like nostalgic entertainment that took place in the thirties. Whereas the exorcist was very edgy movie. Very hard are a hard arm and pretty much almost an ex. I mean, this is like a cold bucket. A holy water in the face of a pew Besson. Girl. I mean, even the Hollywood reporter this very publications seemed genuinely shocked by it in its review, they called it, quote, an abomination, and quote, and they call it the wretched excess of the year, but at the same time, they also suggested that it may be the most frightening movie ever made and forty five years later, it's still pretty much lays claim to that title of scariest movie ever made this week's special guest. We have the man responsible for making it. That's right director, William freakin. What throw the talk to this guy? He was great. He was absolutely wonderful. I didn't know what to expect. I thought he might be lawf- the wall get some of the films. He's made forget his age eighty two. I didn't know what we were going to get. But he was such a nice guy was just a thrill to sit at the feet of a master filmmaker.
