When she won her first oscar for best supporting actress for fences and twenty seventeen. She became the first black person to win the so so-called triple crown of acting a competitive advantage emmy and tony award because of this in how omnipresent she's been over the last decade including her turn in the blockbuster period piece the help and as the shady complicated lawyer least keating in the long running series how to get away with murder. It might be easy to forget that. She has more than paid her dues to get where she's at. Now she graduated from juilliard in nineteen ninety-three and bounce between theater and screen throughout the rest of that decade by the early offs. She'd become a reliable supporting actor. Popping up in steven soderbergh movies like solaris and playing rations on the mom rule or the urban professional. She spoken candidly about how being dark skinned. Black woman has impacted her career like in this interview. She did with tina brown in twenty eighteen. I have a career that's probably comparable to meryl streep julianne moore. Let's sigourney weaver. They all came out of jail. They came out of juilliard. They came on nyu. They had the same path as me and yet i am nowhere near them. Not as far as money not as far as job opportunities. Nowhere close to

And i loved the when i began the interview. And i asked him why he wrote it. Or why this subject interested him and how he was feeling down and he wanted sunny days again. I love away. yeah i think. A lot of people can relate to that. I think a lot of people benefited from these shows and their commitment to diversity. Representation inclusion it. I just saw the cutest thing.

"Because finally enough combining two of those documentaries. I used to work at blockbuster. Music which was Raw it wasn't rentals but they had listening center and you could ask for us to open any cd in the whole store. And we you listen to it before you bought it and so that was super fun and we had the same shelves as the regular blockbuster. Where like you know Staff picks like. I put so much thought into my staff. God what was on what. I need to change them all the time but i would love to know i would love a playlist. A suzy staff picks from that era. And what you're listening to. Please please give some of the bangers on your list. Well i mean he. Then you'd put all this thought into it. Like i went through a big billy joel phase. At that time. That was. When i i really fell in love with him and like harry connick junior and stuff but then you put all this thought in and you put the cd up and be like susie pick and then some other staff member would like swap it out for like homo erotica or i like genuinely mad about it loves earlier but like that to me is what i miss about retail in general is like when you can go to a record store or you could go to a video store. Whatever and ask people who really love music or movies or whatever and say like what. Do you recommend could like help you find treasures because that really and community. Same thing about that blockbuster why that was good. Yeah and now it's susie. It's not just hard. It's damn near impossible. Because if you even try to google what's the best mascara year you're gonna get because i mean i say that because i worked at a beauty supply store and i would i would like i loved to like spend the time to really make sure that that customer was going home with something that was perfect for them and blah blah blah. And now if i was just like google what's the best this it's get. You're getting like an ad. I'm getting like glamour magazines. Like what they've paid to tell me is and i'm like no no. No i want the person who knows the info and like the one on one. What we really missing is the connection can go to a store. Do you think it would still be like that. Like if you go to a makeup store not. I don't think it is. It depends on what what the store is. Because it used to be like that nordstrom. And i used to work at nordstrom to and then i i watched it as a customer change and then i went a bit ago it was always before an event that you and i did and i got my makeup done and i remember that yeah member and then i was so mad and so awful and then she was telling me the whole time. About how nordstrom is terrible and How now they're like. They care more about the sales goals and like that..

The results amounted to a blockbuster quarter for coin base eclipsing its performance for the entire previous year and quote. Let me repeat that last line. Their first quarter of this year was better than all of last year. Also let me point out those margins profit of eight hundred million dollars on one point. Eight billion in revenue that's amazing they had trading volume of three hundred and thirty five billion dollars. So there you go as long. As crypto is hot they can make bank easily and they have fifty six million users which is a lot but when you consider that they believe everyone will be into crypto someday.

Just this neighborhood here that you can't have outdoor cats. Good good is right because mine died. Six jesus five or six maybe not sick. Maybe maybe four or five. Maybe that we have to ask my mom. My childhood memories says six but really it was not it was like probably like four still. They just never came back. And we know it was coyotes. Because that's what happens. When you live in wildwood they are gonna have your cat eaten by a coyote. Because they like those. that's good. It is even without coyotes. It's dangerous out there for a little kitties. keep them inside guy. Lovely around okay. I watched The bill last blockbuster did you watch it. Oh no not yet. It's real cute all good. You know what's funny is the reason. Why didn't we didn't watch. It is because i thought we had already talked about it on our show. But i i don't know i was like. Oh maybe i already know. The story which is weird. I have no idea you know what we did. Talk about like how they were rent. You come experience like a nine experience. Watch a movie overnight. I remember that yes. Well the documentary which is on net flicks. The irony of course is that is really funny right. Net flicks is telling the story about how they ruined blockbuster and what i loved about. It was that this isn't oregon and the woman that runs. The store is like just as hero of she just loves her job and she's just really committed to it and creating this community which i think is why it's the last one left because they still make a profit you know. People are our pilgrimage of going on pilgrimage. To now i think even before that that she they weren't just coming in for videos they were coming in for the all connection. I see yeah even that she did something to create okay so she owned the blockbuster while it was still like a blockbuster and not in ironic blockbuster it's still is a franchise. It's no different. And it's the last one and they just renewed her for two more years but like oh my god. It's just her yeah. I can't say that she owns. I mean they should just like blockbuster for christ's sake real like just give it to her. What are you still taking money from this woman for because she is so nice and she like has to go to. Target unlike tuesday's one of the new releases come out and buy copies to walk poster. My god it's adorable. And she liked bai's candy from costco and stuff and just real special.

"I'm here with cat sandbars insider who wrote a blockbuster expose Last week that is having repercussions this week about david dobric and the influence our world and i wanna talk through all of it. I welcome as the much for having me whenever i talk about influence or a youtube person. I feel like i keep saying the same thing where there's a rochard test. Which is there's a big part of our audience who will know who we're talking about an equally significant portion of audience. Who doesn't know who we're talking about. So let's set the stage briefly. Who who is david dobric. And why is he important. David break is one of the biggest names on youtube. He started his comedy career on vine back in around twenty teen and so his short form comedy is what made him really popular Over the past couple of years on youtube he's become one of the most widely followed widely talked about creators and his perception is that he's extremely beloved. He's well known for having a large friend group that he films doing a lot of comedic stunts in improv style skits and he uploads four minute twenty second blogs that have been wildly successful both from a social media standpoint as well as a monetary standpoint. You're my vague. Sense of him is that he's a goofy guy who enjoys having fun. I've seen a lot of videos of him showing off things. He's bought with the money that he's made being a youtube star like a crazy mansion. That has a funny dispenser. That what i think soda comes out of it or something. That and that's my sense of him So he's got this posse of people vlog squad which i had not heard of until this week so i feel very old. So tell us what you wrote about last week. And why it's important so over the past few months Former members of the log squad. Friend groups that david talked about in his blogs have come forward to talk about experiences that have been less than positive One of the former members described it as being like a colt Another former member said he was sexually assaulted by one of the

Marvel's 'Black Widow' will debut on Disney+ and theaters at the same time

"This was not what movie theaters had in mind for summer blockbuster season so what are you going to do and linda. Lot of lives but an done room from my past. Perhaps the biggest box office departure of the pandemic so far disney has decided to release black widow in theaters and on its disney plus app at the same time we finished business before we go further. I should say disney the parent company of abc. But the reason this is really a huge deal is not a movie streaming. We've seen that elsewhere is not that you'd have to pay thirty bucks for it. We saw that with moulana some other films but this is a marvel movie in july. Marvel is one of the most profitable studios on the planet right now. If black widow can sell half as many tickets as a vendors endgame. We talked about a billion dollars. Disney pushed the release back last year because of the pandemic so this move now either means a disney does not think people are coming to theaters in the same way in the foreseeable future or be it streaming platform has become so important. It's willing to tick off some movie theaters. Because that's the big question in the movie world right now. We'll movie theaters matter going forward

How do I get started with SEO?

"Let's get started with a bit of search engine optimization wanna one the whole point of seo is to make it easy. I search engines primarily. Google most dominant search engine to find you and your website when i say website. I'm talking about all the pages on your site all the blog posts now if new to your market for a new in your business. Most people aren't going to search and find you by name not a household name yet but you want people to find you. Buy the keywords search for so for example. let's say you're yoga instructor. You won't find your website when they type things like yoga poses for a bad back or yoga for beginners. Every industry has popular the most frequently searched keywords in your marketplace. Let's go with yoga example. In the yoga world there are the top one hundred key words that people type into google searching for things related to yoga. Wanna make sure. Europe's i shows up when anybody searches for these key words and you wanna make sure you show up as highest possible in the google rankings. They say the top three positions on the first page are gold really Most of all the traffic go to those first three rankings. But you're just getting started. Your job really is tried to at least get on the first page. Okay so what is step number. One is separate. One is a unique keyword research tool. There's a lot of keyword research tools out there. let me start with a free one. There's google keyword planner. They keep changing the name. But if you just google google keyword tool you'll find it and this one's free. It's a little bit complicated. The you is so fantastic so if you have a budget for it. I recommend to tools that you can use your choose either one One is a truce. That's a h. R. e. f. s. The other one is surp- stan. We've used both of these tools for keyword planning Both work just as good as each other is just a matter of preference of what you like. These are paid tools and you pay monthly to get access to it. I believe services is a little bit less expensive than h refs so budget may surf sets the way to go now. What are these tools. Do with these tools. Allow you to find out how much traffic every keyword gets also allows you to know which key words you should be looking for in your market. So of the yoga instruction market. I can write yoga classes. And i can see all the key. Words that relate to that market i can also see what keywords am i ranking four for my website and even more importantly i could see what keywords do my competitors rank for so your first step in getting started with. Seo is a list of your top. One hundred keywords. You want to go after. What are the hundred keywords that you want to show up on the first page when somebody searches for those you can literally just write them down in google sheet one hundred key words okay and then once you have the hundred words can now work on trying to get visibility on all of them so you can't do a hundred in one shot so we break it up into ten every week so in ten weeks you'll be done with this project so now you know the keywords are looking for what do you need to do well obviously you're not gonna just magically show up for these key words you need to have content on your website that match these keywords mentioned these keywords that go into depth and keywords so this is a really good way for you to start planning your content. Your block Even the pages on your website that describe your features in your services so one place to start is to go on your website and look at all the pages you have start with your pages and see which pages can you rank for these keywords. You can mention these keywords on those pages that make sense that actually is congruent reader would read that on the page and say okay that makes sense not just forced they used blockbuster's what block was have you published you may have not included these keywords. That you can. This is literally changing the copy on your site to reflect these key words and of course you need to make sure it makes sense. That actually is a good fit. Was very sophisticated. And if you try to force it in what's called keyword stuffing you're going to get slapped on google and it's going to be a detrimental effect on your site ranking so don't try to force it if it makes sense do it. If it doesn't don't have done that take a look at the keywords that you have on your list. What are some blog posts that you can right around these Keywords these could be your next block pussy publish in the next week to three. You get the point now what we just did modifying our pages and blog posts is called on site. Seo and it's kind of the first step you need to do but now you can go into. What's called the metadata you be able to help. Google find your pages with these key words so what we'd like to do and what we like to recommend is every page every blog posts. You should be trying to go for one keyword for that page your blog post. That's the focus. You're really trying to achieve mastery over that key word on a page or block

Microsoft is planning to bring additional bethesda games to its xbox game pass subscription service within days said xbox head phil spencer so xbox game pass which has been gaining in popularity will likely get a boost. Out of this I checked it has about eighteen million pain members that they pay ten dollars a month or more for the service. For instance you can also get it for fifteen dollars if you include xbox live which if you play online multiplayer games you need that anyway and the thing with game pass to is. They haven't just been showing off like games. They've also tried to do a lot of microsoft gains day and date so you can actually buy the game or you can try it out on game pass and i wouldn't be surprised if we see that in a similar way with bethesda where we see a lot of their games available maybe day and date on xbox game pass so

Post-Pandemic Cities Might Actually Want Airbnb Around

"Has been a roller coaster year for a lot of businesses. Few more nausea inducing than airbnb. The company saw an eighty percent drop in business. Last spring is the pandemic hit. It laid off a quarter of its employees raised. Two billion dollars in private funding hurried the heck up and introduced online experiences like virtual cooking classes to try to make any money at all but by december airbnb had recovered enough for a blockbuster. Ipo and a profitable third quarter now. The companies facing the return of its core business plus. It's pre existing challenges like being blamed for housing shortages and new ones like whether to house rioters planning to storm the us capitol. Brian jesse is the ceo of airbnb in the wake of the january. Six insurrection in washington. Dc thought occurred to us and the thought was. Where are these people staying. And the next thought occurred us weight. People are gonna come back to dc and we said we're going to cancel all reservations for the weekend gration dc. That i think we learned the lesson a longtime ago that we have to take more responsibility because our product is in the real world and that's led to us having agreements with more than thousand cities around the world. I want to ask you about that. Actually because that is been that was sort of the other bubbling thing with airbnb. Is this relationship with cities and weather. Airbnb is partly to blame for the lack of affordable rentals as you sort of prepare for that part of the business to come back in force. How view rethought your relationships with cities and housing. I think kobe allowed everyone to take a breather. Think we got a bit of a reset and the relationship with some cities city started approaching us. Some actually said they wanted to get more demand because they said we have major budget shortfalls. Now we have major tourism shortfalls. So you think it's the kind of reset where cities were like. Oh we need you as opposed to you erin. Pnb have to do more to deal with the question of how things play. maybe not. They need us but they say oh. Maybe we can work together. I feel very optimistic about our ability. Have great relationships to cities. And i think the other thing that's going to happen travel. People aren't just going to travel the same fifty cities anymore. And that has had a way of redistributing travel to more communities because primarily. A lot of the conflicts are too many people one place at the same time. You've also said that you think this idea of digital nomads could be big people booking longer term stays do you think that could improve relationships with cities and neighborhoods too because people are not coming and going so quickly. Yeah i mean. I think the other trend is our businesses becoming less transient monthly. Rentals is one of the fastest growing parts of our business. But but i think the other shift is stays are going to be longer. And i think there's going to be this blurring of the line between traveling and living. It means that people a lot of people saying that they don't live anyone place anymore or they used to be. You live on place and you go one or two nights for a business meeting and like one or two weeks vacation now a world where you work from home means the world you can work from any home and so i think you're seeing people where i think i think three day weekends. We'll be every weekend for a lot of people. i think. Some people will take five day weekends. I think significantly more people will live in a different house over the summer than the house. They currently live in where they use in the same house. I think it'd be very normal for people to go to a different house for the summer. I mean it just makes by the way total sense. Why one would do that. And if you could say well how do they ford it where they can rent their house and they're gone so you can net it out. So these are things are going to happen but you're going to also have people. They're just purely nomadic. Maybe not people families but retirees and an empty nesters or you know young people single people people who like can move. I mean i always had a dream of like what. If i could go to like you know a different city every month in live there. This would be super interesting. Think about all the people you would meet all the connections you'd have By the way in this new world you can still stay connected. All the people used to know. So i think this is where travelers going. Travelling living blurring together

Why Leaders Need to Get Better at Changing Their Minds with Adam Grant

"Guest. Today is adam grant. Adam is an organizational psychologist and a ted speaker who helps people find meaning and motivation at work. He's a bestselling author and he's also the host of worklife a great podcast. You should check out in his new book. Think again adam challenges us to slow down and stop doing an executing all the time and actually spend time thinking thinking about our business where it's going what problems we have to solve. Why is it that we have such a temptation to just stay on that treadmill of producing an executing and we never stop and make the time to think one is that whip rewarded for what we deliver right and it's sometimes hard to connect the dots between cardi. I've got a bunch of new ideas or a fresh perspective and and what that actually means for my small business. I think the the second thing is we get rewarded for doing things. The same way over and over again that gives us excellence of execution. It helps us build productive routines and then we get really comfortable in our best practices. And i think the danger of that of course is that we don't look around ask if there are better practices and i think what a lot of us end up doing. Is we think too. Much like preachers and prosecutors. When we're in the mindset of preachers were convinced. Where right when we're thinking like prosecutors were proving people who are challenging us wrong and that means we stop thinking flexibly and sometimes we fall into the trap of foolish consistency and we see this happen all the time with huge companies right. I don't think that that berry or blockbuster kodak or sears. Had any problem with doing right. They were great at executing. The problem was they were executing the things that made them great in the past and they missed out obviously on a bunch of digital disruption. Some of which was brought from the outside. But if you look at a kodak they actually pioneered digital imaging and then they said no. Our business model is selling film. Obviously that didn't work out very well for them. and i see the same dynamics. In small businesses pretty regularly where people are unwilling to rethink their strategies their products services on some of their practices that have driven their success in the past. And and that means sometimes we get trapped instability where we should be embracing change. I love the kodak example. Because in hindsight we can all see how they actually could have become instagram me. They were the market leader in photography. And had they been thinking this way. They could have shifted that and caused that revolution. Knowing what you know what you studied that goes into this book. Think again if you could go back and be a consultant into the executive team at kodak at that time what do you imagine they would have been saying that was keeping them entrenched in. And what would you tell them about how they were thinking and the opportunity that they would miss if they didn't change the way they fought that such an interesting question. Well i would have. I mean it would have been great to introduce them to the future of the internet. Talk to them about how we were. All going to be posting selfies. One day but i think long before that where i would have started would have been to talk to them a little bit about the fat cat syndrome right where we tend to rest on our laurels and get complacent when things are going really well. And that's the perfect time to shake things up because we have the resources and slack capacity to do it. And then i think the next thing that i probably would've done is i would have encouraged them to stop preaching that they were right. Stop prosecuting me for being wrong and instead think a little bit more like scientists daniel one of my all time favorite experiments was done recently with small business owners in italy. So they're all pre revenue. They're taking a three to four month. Crash course in hottest start and run a business. They all get the exact same training and education. What they don't know is that half of them have been randomly assigned just to think like scientists in the way that they build and run their businesses. They're told your strategies just theory. Go do customer interviews to develop some specific hypotheses and then when you launch her first product or service. That's just an experiment to test your hypotheses and it turns out that group that's just encouraged to think like scientists over the next year they bring in on average more than forty times the revenue of the control group which is a stunning effect. Right and the major reason why they're so successful when they think scientists is that there are more than twice as likely to pivot they. They run their their first product. Launch or service launch and. it doesn't work and instead of doubling down. They say you know what i guess. I learned that my theory was wrong. Or hypotheses. didn't work in this market or a need to rethink my minimum viable product. And i would have encouraged kodak to do the same thing. I would've said okay. You all are great scientists when it comes to figuring out how to process film and build a camera. Why don't you apply that same. Ab testing that you normally do with products to your strategy to the kinds of products that you create to how you run your company and let's just let's try the digital camera. You have the technology what's going to happen if we roll it out instead of waiting for a couple dozen get rolled out first and then saying lips. It's too late. What are the hallmarks of thinking like a scientist that we don't see when you're thinking like prosecutor or a preacher who i don't think you have to own a microscope or telescope writer even a lab coat thinking like a scientist to may just means you favor humility over pride and curiosity over conviction. That means you know what you don't now and you're excited to discover things that might actually teach you a fresh perspective or you know an area of expertise that you don't currently have access to and one of the things that scientists do best at least good scientists right sometimes. Even scientists don't think like scientists but good scientists is is somebody who says i'm knocking to let my ideas become my identity right. I'm not going to start to define myself as as the kind of person who only leads a certain way. Or i won't define us is the kind of business that only does one thing and i think that flexibility is is a huge part of what allows the scientific thinking mindset to allow small business owners to continue adapting and not only responding to change the world but actually creating

"Blockbuster, and we're back with Al Giddings and it's September, nineteen ninety five and it turns out these dives to titanic or taking place in the middle of a unusually strong hurricane season on one occasion, it was so rough. that when we were. Recovered when the crane picked us up out of the water, the submarine with swinging. and. The pendulum was such that we slammed into the side of the Keldysh. Oh, well, and broke a bunch of things hanging down and lights broken off often whatever dangerous stuff. That was a very, very bad moment I mean if if somehow it Broke. The Crane? Or something really any marina, just go into the end of the ocean. So the next. Is probably a spooky dive. Dive after that real I, mean you gotta check is looking out a little. You know four inch Porthole, you have no idea what's going on. In a case like that. When things go wrong, how do you control your? Adrenalin. I've. A, tendency to. Get. Perhaps. A bit. More. Quiet.

So you can't let your emotions sort of run to the forefront and run away with a moment. I. Mean Logic and and. You know careful consideration has called for. When you were aboard the Keldysh a plane flew in some developed film that you guys had shot, and this was the first footage that you've seen of of what you've been capturing. Of Titanic. But what was that like seeing all of that for the first time? Well. You can well imagine extremely rewarding. Considering the effort, the investment, all the players, and on and on. What made it even more amazing. Is here we are over titanic. An airplane shows up about one hundred feet off the water. And everyone runs up to the outer deck and? And there's lots of signals and carrying on. About a small rubber, boat is launched and on the second or third, pass? The plane drops a package into the sea. I. Mean. Big Splash. How can anything survive it? Was the question. What all was in that it wasn't just filled canister wasn't film roles. It was all the film. Wow. Develop online where her work print uh-huh anyway. So.

"I'm series Creator Matt Schrader Hey, I'm the sound designer Peter Bobby, and this is our creator chat about episode eight. You just heard from blockbuster the story of James Cameron. During production, we called this the underwater episode and sound design in this one is just superb. I it's a big one because we opened up the season with the submarine with the dive, but that was just the first three or four minutes of the episode and that was it. But now we come back and I have this timetable of the whole show alternate episodes and I always saw episode as this is a big red blob because it's so complicated. We're in the submarine for you know, twenty five minutes and it's a lot of work to make it interesting and to make it claustrophobic right? Because we're plunging twelve and a half thousand feet. Yep. Three point eight kilometers an into the middle of the contain Atlantic Ocean, right and we wanted to. Put everyone in the submarine as much as we could on a podcast format, there's obviously the sound of kind of underwater sound but also there in submarine, lots of lots of things are happening. You've got the submarine you've got the engines you've got the ventilation system. Yuga buttons, beeps all the crash. A lot of things are happening in there and you know dialogue ends a piling on itself in moments of panic and when you say dialogue piling. On itself. You're talking about it act the way that if you're in a very small space, you'll actually feel you know the sound waves will do something differently. 'cause they're bouncing off of of everything that's so close around you. Yeah. It's kind of like you know when you get in a car and it sounds slightly different now while some arenas worse because it barely has any soft material, it's basic I'll metal up. So just becomes the psych. Resonant Chamber and you just keep on hearing your own reflections and it just keeps on building up on you and it's very intimidating psychologically, and one of the things I found most interesting about these dives was how grueling the whole experience was really wore them down twenty five days at sea. A dozen dives with these state of the art cameras that are designed just for this. So obviously, there's a lot of maintenance and staying on top of those and the lights that they build for this and Snoop Dogg there about remote operated vehicle that they have on tether James Actually kept a diary of this and something referenced. By Journalists Paula Paryski for wired magazine in one, thousand, nine, hundred eight, and it was fascinating among his observations from his dives. He said there are no icebergs at this time is September on the way down James Concerned about the Lai towers holding up and Russian pilot Anatoly you heard in the episode is counting down the distance to the ocean floor as they get near, they bought them out at twelve, thousand, five, hundred, eighty feet below level and they really have trouble finding titanic. This new sonar system they installed isn't working. So they have to rely on the old technology, old nineteen sixties technology and then this quote from James. Anatoly parks us on the bottom I look out my port, which is small and candid slightly to the side and six feet ahead. There's a big steel wall with rivets on it I know it's not the whole because it's got a jagged edge on the walls just plunged their into the bottom I don't even have time to react because we're drifting sideways and we're about to hit it. and. Then he writes I go from not seeing it not seeing it not seeing it to seeing a wall of rivets too pure adrenaline being out of control and slamming down it's it's so much adrenaline and to be able to do it you know just sonically right nothing nothing nothing slam it. It's a really. Cool audio experience that we were able to create right there that that moment of nothing too huge boom Al getting's you heard in the episode made many of those guys with James and he he recounts these bonus interview for this episode. I. Went Up to Northern California to visit him at his house and He showed me some of the housing systems that they built, which still are extremely impressive. The most rugged pieces of this you know soldered metal you'll ever see built to in case cameras at that depth and these things were he let me pick trying to pick up one of these. Camera housings and even without the camera in it, it's just insanely heavy. So I'll talk about the unusually strong hurricane season made this. You know made the ocean currents much less predictable and recounted his fear of getting stuck or worse crashing into the jagged metal wreckage and and puncturing the sub. Thankfully, that's not what happened because they were. Pretty. In a different situation than we are nowadays because they were shooting on film yeah. Obviously film is still used in cinema. But they as they were diving didn't know one hundred percent what they were getting. So it wasn't until when towards the end of their whole adventure that they started getting back the film, the footage that was developed at it what a surreal thing to to be on your own you know there's nothing else anywhere around you the middle of the ocean and have this plane appear from nowhere and and make a drop of a cargo package and and there's actually video this which we are putting on some of our social media channels you could follow blockbuster pod on facebook instagram twitter, but there's video. Of. The plane making the drop and these things you know them starting to to pull out the film for this and you're right now getting said that when he saw the film footage was better than he expected and he knew it was it was good in the first place he was underwater cinematographer. So he was confident in what he'd captured, but it was even better than that and all these shots inside of the ship that hadn't been seen by anyone in eighty three years at that point, and you can understand why they ended up partying with the Russians drinking vodka music and It was fun to teach. Ross. Some. Action. So he could also party in our podcast that was fun but yeah, I think that story. Wise. It's really interesting because James comes away with this enormous sense of responsibility for this project right? Because he's really in the perfect position where the studio was willing to give him money for all this film and he ends up making this hybrid, a romance which he hasn't done before. If you look at at all the movies that he's done, but he fuses it with his passion for science storytelling, right? So he has this hybrid project, which is, I think for the first time, he might have literally just felt this fire like this is the big one and probably that's why pushed the project into becoming one one of the biggest movies of aid and it was his. Potential and you can also see how you could screw something like that up.

It was a little bit difficult to confirm how much of that is actually true, but it sure seems to be and shows a little bit of that kind of James Cameron Spirit and that leadership that's starting to come together and this early training I guess that James had from Roger was something that molded James into who he eventually became, and you'll learn in the following episodes who he really became. That'll do it for us For for all of us here, Fernando Royal. Last grain thank. You Peter Bobby. Let's thank you match.

Essentially people start turning against you. Also start making more enemies you you become aggressive. He put his own money his own wealth his relationship with his friends family. Right even with this wife on the line He was all in right. He was all in and he knew at that point. He saw that what he was creating. That was worth it. That vision was starting to take shape of something material and he knew he just had to push through it just the best possible version that he could have made at that point and I mean.

We're doing in podcast. Now that means you know I've always thought it's improving by one percent every time you know each time. Just just get a little bit better and then that one percent you know compounds if you know anything about how the math of that works and it's you know after two months of one percent every day you know. The podcast is is two hundred percent. Then you know it's twice as good as what it was when it was first written on paper and now we've made it even better and then if we're doing something to eight months you know like we. I think didn't about nine months for season. One of blockbuster You know that's a thousand percent ten times better than we originally had it And you know in some key. Filmmakers cases goes on for years of just trying to punch it up a little bit by bit by bit and their aim is really just to try to reach something. That's unattainable that idea of perfection. Oh Yeah and you know you go until it's perfect. If it can be a little bit better yeah take that take that every time it every time you know yeah. How many times did we nudged dialogue around? Well we never stop this and yeah. I think we were still doing that. We never stop doing that. We're nudging nudging all the time until we have you know scenes that we really love sees it make you feel yeah that make us feel and we hope that makes our audience. Feel too right and with the guiding principle of like. Let's just get this one percent better and sometimes you look out and it's ten percent better and you think wow we really. We really found it here but But just I if every move you make will improve it a little bit. You're eventually going to get there. But our challenges really in fixing everything that we noticed that can be improved. And it's about making those moments powerful making it matter and at the same time giving it a feeling of perfect where you come away with creative product.

"Now back to the episode. And you know when we first started out filming interviews for score that the documentary the feature documentary you know. I didn't know anyone who is a film composer. Of course you know the first question. Everybody and their agent has when you email them or you call them. They say who else is participating and no one wants to be in it if nobody else is is Is in it yet. And so there's always this question of like. How do you get that that I kind of critical mass to be able to actually say oh we have you know? Abcd that are all part of this and then that hopefully makes it a lot easier because people trust okay. If they're in it then this must be this must be legit. It was extraordinarily difficult to get the first interviews because our answer was no one yet but we hope to get you know such and such and then we have this laundry list of composers that we were hoping to get access to Who are way too busy to to sit down with US based on just some cold call to their offices and we had some people refuse it. I I remember one composer Who who shall not be named now but a very very famous composer who James noon Howard. No no it's not him But someone who Who got back. We have to cut this out. It was someone who just said. I'm just not that interested. How do you overcome that? That's where this action comes in our plan on score whiskey interview all of the people at the edge of this industry. I so we would start with the agents and managers and executives who could comment on film music history and evolution and hopefully lead us to one or two. You know real composers that we could interview after that and that strategy worked. We shot over Fifty interviews and all and it ended up being more than we needed and almost everyone made it into the final film but it was that action plan. That was the key to the whole documentary and it led us to this realization. That everyone who had doubted us Along the way. And you always think when you hear that there's always the the self-doubt of you know in my nuts for trying to do this because people are literally telling me no because I just don't want to and you know how do you rebound from that and And then at the end of this it's so satisfying if you're able to kind of power your way through that And will your way to to an end product and now a lot of these people. We had reached out to a really impressed that we'd pull it all off and we ended up inviting many of them to To the premiere screening also including some that we never actually ended up interviewing But they were then very supportive which was which was great so with blockbuster season one you know. We approached several podcasts networks. And it's a different relationship with you know a scripted. Podcast thing and it's a very new thing too so I don't know that there's necessarily a you know one right way to do this. But we approach several people early on We'd never made podcast before a scripted. Podcast and we knew we could probably figure it out but we need the right partners. Who believed in US and We approached several of the major podcast. Network's all of them had some issue with our style of storytelling. Or you know certain certain things that we were doing in a way that they were unfamiliar with You know if you think of podcasts. A lot of people still think of it as something that you you know record you talking about movies in your garage or true crime story or something along. Those lines and most companies have unscripted departments and then they have fiction departments and we were not fiction but also we weren't really documentary either. This wasn't us interviewing people about Steven. Spielberg this was US. Doing all of the research to be able to put together a story and tell it in kind of the most immersive inorganic way that we could. We could again that bio-pic model but none of these podcasts. Networks really knew how to do this one executive. I remember at a major network said to us. We just weren't feeling the format of the show we do. We don't think it'll work. You know so here. We are several months into developing the story of Steven Spielberg and George Lucas. That we really like we find so kind of magical an inspirational and all of the people in this industry are saying it's a bad idea. Actually I just want to point out that we were much further than developing the story. Yeah I think we actually were like in like heavy in post production. So you know just pulled off this like you know. It is mini series but is pretty big as far as production post production goes and. It's very time consuming. So we'll put all of this money into it all of those resources all this work hours and then what we're hearing is like well you know we don't understand what this format as you know. What does the narrative pod how you know does the Mollard so different so you need like? We don't know what to do with this. We don't know how it's GONNA fit into our existing slate and things like this and that's pretty much the moment that comes right before the.

"I mean he was creating visual effects. No existing company could even do and sound effects and sound effects right but like he was especially hands on with the VIZ effects. I mean he was getting everyone how we're going to have this robotic arm cameras going to be on this is going to glide to the miniatures and ever and it was madness. I mean he had these ideas of how he would shoot star wars with the special effects. Nobody's ever done it before and no doubt about it. It's in books. Its history its point here was at the forefront of the revolution of visual effects. And the only way he knew how to west to set up his own operation to prove that method filmmaking actually works company is called industrial light and magic and they are basically the gold standard for special effects companies. That's right. There are great examples of interpreter ships throughout history of these concepts at play Where someone wanted to change things the way things were done in order to make better bigger you name it. But they needed to change the process to get a slightly different product out of it and changing the process is a very difficult thing especially when you're working in teams of people write. These inventions took years to catch on because they didn't have the complementary roles of our help them grow right right. So you know example. Edison's light bulb. Edison is responsible for you know the first commercially viable lightbulb. And this kind of new model of this is doing mentioned. It was met with criticism. It was people thought it was a stupid gimmick. It's terraces oil lamp. You know why this is ridiculous. You have a little filament involved. And you know what's wrong with the oil lamp and it took years before that idea caught on And the reason was the idea itself wasn't good enough to revolutionize it had to come with other things. Yeah and something that I'm as a sound person much more close to is the telephone itself. I mean in a way. The telephone was the kind of beginning of of sound transmission in a way as we know it. And so Alexander Graham Bell patented it in eighteen seventy six. He went out trying to sell his invention but everybody laughed him out like they did not understand why you would wanna do that. And this company called Western Union. They said it was too complex for an average person to us and that it wasn't a tool but a quote unquote toy. We're going to keep doing telegraphs. They said great love it. So let's do telegraphs right. And so he went to the biggest to the big boys in the big boys said absolutely now so Bellefield but instead of being the end of his story right the end of the story of the telephone He started his own company with the financial support of his father in law and a friend Thomas Sanders who was a leather merchant and who actually had experienced in one thing. That bell wasn't the best which was managing a small business right so he partnered up with someone who complemented what bell did in a way that would make this endeavor the telephone more feasible and so together. They scaled this operation up. They began leasing out telephones which they service themselves to right. Because you're essentially giving this device to people they can operated but sometimes they break and everything so they also service them and it course. It took years but eventually bell telephone company and the technology went onto really revolutionized communication over the next century. As we know it. Oh yeah and it not only became a revolution of its own but everything that we do nowadays whether it's the cell phone you're holding right or the Internet using there's a very high chance it's running over regular phone lines. I mean it became the backbone of our civilization communication. Everything that we're using right now during you know these. These corona virus has been enabled as a result of this of this partnership of two people And so just looking at the big picture. Bells idea was amazing. And he had a passion for this. He knew what he was doing in eighteen. Seventy six but that wasn't good enough because he didn't have the partners. He didn't have the support that he needed to make this a an actual feasible product. Right this Guy Thomas Sanders. Correct a leather merchant correct. So He's the Guy who knew how to run a business and passion became action. A Vision became an executed reality and that brings us to the next stage from any enterpreneurs. Yes using the haters to your advantage. The the second challenge here because once you get in to actually creating something you're going to be challenged..

Some of the the ingredients that go into the recipe of of kind of building a small business. And he's from Poland. Yes yes I am from Poland any but really the approach for every single project every single movie every single story I tell is to approach it as interpreter as a business venture and to manage it with that mindset in what I do there's always an aspect A goal of making exciting fun. You can hear that in blockbuster when George. Lucas is holding the phone while John Williams is playing the star wars thing and we traveled through the phone line to Steven Spielberg listening on the other end But the other aspect is just trying to support the story. Tell tell with sound and sometimes there won't be narration or dialogue and we start drawing places events or feelings with sound but we try to build those pieces in a way. That's not confusing or disorienting. It might be the way someone walks right because we walk in different ways when we're excited or how George. Fumbles with paper and pen when he's coming up with the names of all the characters of Star Wars and so we hear those hesitations in the pencil right those little things but they're never undermining.

"Is Ryan Talbert, one of the composers of blockbusters original music, and this match Schrader creator and narrator of blockbuster. Each week. We are discussing a little piece of the creative process of making each episode. End today, talking about a topic that's close to my heart incredible original score from Ryan Tabart, and Benjamin Botkin and Ryan is here, and Ryan when we met, making score film music documentary you came on as composer of that film. And I remember you saying, oh, great. So I have to write music to follow up the greatest hits of Hants immer. What did you think when I asked you, if you'd score a series Williams, that has to be one of maybe one of the most timid timid eating things that projects composer can agree to? Yeah. I mean, the best, I guess, at the end of the day, I just figured. Well, you know, I can only do my best, a very musical episode. And one of the things about John Williams music, specifically is there's so many themes and motifs that are layered, a lot of character themes, a lot of that was something that we talked about early on kind of having a motif driven approach theme driven approach, where each character had a theme for me, just started with understanding their story understanding a little bit about their personalities you know, just had said down with Pia. No. And I tried to, I guess, walk in the shoes of the characters or get into their personalities the George Lucas theme. I wanted to go with something that felt something that almost has child light since fantasy in a way. But, but also guest element of sophistication, Ella tons. I just start with humming something in my head. If it's easy to home than soon that will be easy to orchestrate and sound good with the orchestra, you are one of the two composers, who created the musical heartbeat here and Benjamin. Botkin. The other composer, really helped tap into the John Williams sound for me. It's a feeling there's almost certain bounciness to the orchestration. There's a softer touch to certain things as opposed to going full rock and roll with the. Orchestra every musician fills like they're doing something important. They get to have their voice on certain moments rather than just kind of blending in the whole time. That's really interesting. Yeah, yeah, I in the creates a certain feeling it feels like every musician is playing something apart that feels important for them and important to the whole peace, Benjamin's based in Nashville, you're based here in Los Angeles. What was the working relationship like it was very back and forth? It requires a lot of work to get that kind of sound. And he would I would send stuff his way he would change a few things around, then he would send it back. I would change a few things around. Yeah. Until two it sounded like something that suited the project in sounded convincing composer of blockbuster. Thanks for sitting down to chat. Thank you. No problem.

"And you actually can hear some of that stuff in the podcast a lot of is just from sound effects, libraries, and and a lot of it was recorded for this podcast where we were like, okay. This is what we're going to do. I actually think actually one of my favorite sounds that. I recorded that's in the series. I was gonna ask you this next. You know, which one I think so well, I don't wanna spoil that because I'm going to probably say shitty. I'm actually curious we're going to cut this out. But what do you think it was was it the moon, the stargazing sound, oh, the vortex vortex reverse the one of my favorite sounds actually that I recorded accidentally once although not accidentally because I knew they happen in as a kid. I've heard them is. If you go. Oh. At an airport about a mile under maybe less than a mile half a mile under the flight path, the landing path of an airplane about a minute after the plane passes over your head and. You hear the air vortex? The wave of air crashing back at each other which was before pushed away by the airplane and just creates this really interesting. Sound which would not expect after seven four seven because it's so tender, and that's something we used in the stargazing scene. And it's something that reported in seeing the the meteor shower I recorded this last year, I spent an entire day eating out burger in the car. Yeah. On Tari airport just microphone on the roof.

"Bobby the sound designer and editor of blockbuster, and I match raider creator and narrator of the series and welcome to this behind the scenes conversation. Peter we're here again about this episode. You just heard maybe are our most intense episode yet and each week, we're discussing a little piece of the creative process. And I'm here in the studio of Peter, Bobby. It's where all of this sound design and mixing or a lot of at least happened that emergency room scene at the end of the episode. We just heard I remember we were sitting right here in your studio at one point back back in the fall and going through the episodes early on might have been the table reads, and your eyes lit up, and you said, let's do all sound design. Let's do a montage here. Well, we knew that Ryan Ben are going to provide us with incredible score. From the beginning. We've worked with Ryan before on actually score the film music documentary. So. Where I was the mixer, and you know, we we knew that they're going to provide some terrific material. So I kind of felt immediately from the start that that scene, and there were certain scenes that it would be great not to have any music on them. But instead established that there is actually some kind of sound language to the entire series and very early on. When I think when we were actually doing the table reads, I was in the studio while everyone was reading, and I was just taking notes to myself like this is a nice moment for music, and this is a nice moment for sound design. Yeah. To actually, and that's what we we've achieved because we tried to have what at least one segment one section where it was just driven by sound. Right. Can you talk about how you were able to collect all of these sounds because we have one hundred eighty tracks. That were we were using the one thing that it's base. It's surprising because we thought going into it. We knew it's going to be big. But as a podcast like I didn't expect. To go to to attract count equal to like, a I dunno. Indie feature. You know what? Indie features will have they'll have like two hundred tracks or so of audio on a final makes. And here we are doing a podcast at has so many tracks, and we're like, well, we kind of need them. It's an overkill it's like we really need because we've got a lot of categories. We've got all the dialogue all the loop groups, although although archival stuff, we've got all the design elements all the fully all the background. So it was like a lot of material and that just together makes one one big one big podcast. I hope how much of that was were materials. You were sounds. You were able to find somewhere versus sounds that were recorded because obviously all the dialogue is things that we did a lot of the Sound's. Also, though are sounds that you or I or someone else recorded at some point. Yeah. I mean as a sound person, I wherever I go. I always go with my microphones are kind of my right? And and like microphone is always. With me. So it's like I have my own library, which I've been creating over the years of working in the film industry of everything all the way from insects and Malibu two wins in the Grand Canyon..

And I matched writer creator of the series. Welcome to this third installment of our behind the scenes conversations. And we're now at the halfway point of this six part series. And we hope you're enjoying the story as it's beginning to get a little more intense. And max this episode starts off with Steven Spielberg and Martin Scorsese riding around New York to look at people lining up for jaws, and it was one of those cool moments. You almost don't believe really happened. But at the same time Spielberg was just getting his first taste of fame. How did you try to embody the inner excitement of the young Spielberg? Well, I feel like no matter who you are you can relate to Spielberg in some way, it's cool because Spielberg is not a fictional character. He's a real person with real emotions Spielberg was a guy who always exuded passion. And even when he was young and inexperienced. And I was an am the same way, you know, the early troubles on jaws. Really absolutely devastated him. And he wasn't sure he'd ever work again. You know, the scene where he's driving around New York looking at the lines in the theaters for jaws. I wanted to embody the joy of that moment for Stephen and the the high that he was writing at the time. And of course, we get to see the start of Stephen success with John Williams too. And in this episode. He wins the Oscar, and then Stephen, of course, ambitious as he is wants to get right back into his next movie and make music essential part of it. Yeah. How cool is it that, you know, you John Williams music? He feels like is such a great part of why that movie was successful. And so on jaws, right? You know, he credits John for saving that film. And he never had any idea that John would wanna do something. Like, the the to note jaws theme, which is super ambitious and kind of very risky and it worked so. Well that Stephen wanted his music to be part of. Story for close encounters of the third kind and we hear during that spotting session or they're trying to find the, you know, the five notes this time that became the female of that of that movie. And it's a really cool moment because these are events that actually happened in the they really did go through hundreds of different combinations of notes together to find the perfect combination. And and and that's that's awesome. And speaking of of aliens toward the end of this episode. There's a scene where Stevens crew is stargazing. And they're pretty sure they see a real UFO in the sky. Yeah. Oh, we don't know it, you know, that's was that real that's real life blending with fantasy. We'll never know if that was something that was really out there or not. But it's cool that it's cool to think that that inspired Stephen in a way, and that that had an impact on on making his movies and one of those weird coincidences too. You know because it scared the crew a little bit because there was this thing hovering, and it's documented in a great book by Ray Morton about the making of that movie close encounters, but he said that it it was determined to be a satellite, but to satellite just hover there. It's it's a little odd and made weirder by the fact that NASA started taking an interest in in Stevens film after that too. Right. Right. Was was that was that a government scheme just to make good movies? Was that who does Stephen could be an alien. And and that would explain why his movies are so good will never know. Lastly max. We enter the final three episodes of this series. You're pretty good friends with Ray chase who plays George Lucas in this series, and we recorded you guys together. So we could kind of tap into that friendship and artistic report that Stephen and George had for each other. What did you feel like that brought to this story? I think it's really important for everyone to have a friend like that. And especially in the entertainment industry where there are no guarantees that you'll be successful. And you know, there's very little security right on the odds are always again, you when you do have a failure. It's really important to have someone to talk to and to lean on and to lift you back up and let you know that that's that's not the end of your career. And this is a story of the friendship between Stephen and George and how they support each other. Even through some of the worst film productions that really got out of hand and studios wanted to pull the plug on. And it was this. Tip that inspired them to keep going. And and Stephen and George both believed in the idea of a blockbuster film model right with your Matic and mythological elements that would. Sort of appeal to massive audiences and that was brand new at the time. And it might not have happened. If not for their good friendship. So I think that's so important. Really?
