Trump's golf club press conference was a social distancing disaster
"Tonight Donald Trump is at his golf club in Bedminster New Jersey. We know that because the press was summoned for a press conference. That turned out to be a campaign rally of sorts in front of a crowd of assembled members of his golf club. Some of them just off the golf course many of them had a wine glass enhance some of them brought their kids many were not wearing masks. The president was played into the room door recording of hail to the chief. Again, it was less a news conference than it was a list of grievances a dizzying slew of demonstrably false claims including his latest version of how well he says the nation is doing while in the grip of a pandemic. It's going to disappear in the United States more than eighty percent of. Jurisdictions report declining cases were doing very well you don't hear that too often from the media but doing very well
Drug Companies Face Lawsuits From Opioid Crisis As They Respond To The Pandemic
"This week, Johnson and Johnson announced a $1 billion deal with the federal government to develop a new Corona virus vaccine. It's one of many drug companies on the front lines of the covert 19 response, but many of these same firms are facing an avalanche of lawsuits for their role in the opioid epidemic. NPR addiction correspondent Brian Man has been following this and joins us now. Hi bran. Hi, Stacy. Somewhere in this seems like kind of a complicated moment for the drug industry in two very different stories playing out, But first tell us where things stand with the opioid lawsuits. Yeah, eso covered 19 basically shut down the court system nationally for months, but now that log jam is breaking loose and thousands of these civil and criminal cases they're grinding forward again. Big federal trial against pharmacy chains involved in the opiate epidemic just got the green light in Ohio. And next month, a lawsuit against two drugmakers Endo and Mallinckrodt goes to a jury trial in Tennessee. I spoke with Gerard Stranz, one of the lead attorneys representing local governments. In that case, they're demanding billions of dollars in compensation from these companies. Justice delayed is justice denied, and they know that when they sit in front of a jury of the community members would have to explain their conduct. There is no explanation and they're going to have to answer for what they've done. Remember, the federal government says 1/4 1,000,000 Americans have died after taking these opioid medications, and the drug industry is still scrambling to cope with the legal and financial fallout from that. Is there a risk that that opioid look, lawsuits could destabilize or maybe even bankrupt drug companies? I mean this at a time when they are really needed to respond to the pandemic. You know, people are talking a lot about this. Some drug companies have already filed for bankruptcy because of opioids and other firm Mallinckrodt said this week they may file for Chapter 11. So there is concern that holding these companies accountable for the addiction epidemic could disrupt their ability to make these important medical products. Rebecca half a G studies opioid litigation for the Rand Corporation and the University of Michigan. All of these companies have other products as well as opioids that are used for medically necessary purposes. So the goal is not necessarily to put these pharmacies thes manufacturers these distributors out of business altogether, and that would actually be bad for public health and or the health care industry. So one thing I'm hearing Stacy's. As these court cases all move forward. There's new pressure to reach some kind of national opioids settlement that would end all this uncertainty for the drug industry. I mean, obviously, the opioid lawsuits have been a huge black eye for the drug industry. Do you think the pandemic will give them a chance to repair some of the damage to their reputations? I think that is part of the story. Right now. Johnson and Johnson is a good example. Last year Oklahoma one A half $1,000,000,000 decision against the company of the state's attorney general described Johnson and Johnson as a drug kingpin organization for its role making and selling opioids. It's terrible PR. Now the company's casting itself really differently is a public health champion. Of course, a lot of state and local governments say not so fast. They want billions of dollars from these companies before they put the opioid crisis
Virus aid talks on brink of collapse, sides 'very far apart'
"Trouble administration negotiators back on Capitol Hill for last Ege talks on vital covert 19 rescue money, Democratic leaders summoned them for another try with the negotiators. Teetering on the brink of collapse. Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer is accusing the White House and Republicans of not being serious about it. This is a flood economically and health wise of biblical proportion, and a Republican friends are looking like they just want to fix a leaky forces. That's what's the difference here. There are really needs. American knows they have really needs. The public is on our side, but they would seem not to be willing to go in a direction that would meet those needs. White House Chief of staff Mark Meadows said substantial issues still need to be settled amount of time that we're willing to invest both personally and with our staff. Um It needs to be a 24 hour seven day a week kind of commitment until we get this done and and the president is checking in. Literally on hourly basis.

State of Play Reactions
"And hello everyone. My name is Jonathan Bush and this podcast beyond episode six, hundred and sixty one. In episode I am starting as I. Prepare a treat thing for my dog because he's angry that I'm recording this show I'm joined this week by Brian All. He can. He can. He can bark for me. He can you Andros joined by Max Scoville. You should get him xbox controller shape squeaky toys so that he can be a playstation show disrupting commodore dog form. That's a good idea. Now, what do you think of this contaminant and then he bites up? Obviously, he's mad that I haven't given them that tree yet. So I'm going to send it his way. Of, course, we are going to be talking all about the state of play which just wrapped up as a recording the show. Unfortunately, Lucy O'Brien can't be with us because her Internet has decided why? Why were today? That's unnecessary? So she's figuring that out. But of course, if you're wondering where regular scheduled episode is already happened, so you can go back and listen to that either on youtube or your favorite podcast services. It's all there But yeah, we want to do a second episode to break down this state of play and we have a full wrap up all of the video screen shots, all that stuff on Nigerian. You can check out a full breakdown of it. I don't think we'll be going. By game during this, but this, what state of play, of course did come with the expectations that there would not be any major first party announcements there would not be any. Hardware or business related announcement. So assumingly here about any I pretty acquisitions or anything like that, I is basically going to be focused on ps four PS VR and some third party indie updates when it comes to ps five. So with that. All in mind as the expectations were set, just sort of a general down feel Brian. I'll start with you. How did you feel about the show overall? It. I guess like a a C. I would seem like a six out of ten or I, guess, that would be a not not a is like a seven, right? So. Six ten I D. Letters. Yeah, maximum. He looks better idea. Let's do states if that's if that's the state of play was a state, it would be a solid. New Hampshire which I don't really have any strong feelings about I don't particularly dislike it, but it doesn't really get me excited. Nobody's like want to go to New Hampshire and I go hell. Let's go to new. Hampshire, right just it was fine like I feel like they were good in terms of getting expectations on the right level. But at the same time like you know they were like it's going to be forty plus minutes and I was like. Well, it's searcher was but. You know. What it was fine it. It's all right. What else are we GonNa do in Twenty Twenty Watch. The News. Yeah I mean I'm trying to think what other states that would be similar to in like most of it, I'm not really interested in visiting, but it had some. Could be. Cool. Yeah, it's yeah. I. Guess I, Guess, that's a good way of putting. It is I. I'll never never turn these things down, but it is. It does feel a little weird that it was. It was just sort of a kind of a few small things. Some slightly bigger things glued together. But nothing really like. Holy Crap that that was huge, but I think the key thing is these been. So sort of inconsistent. If like if they if these were first announced, was it like last year around e three? If somebody had done these on a on a regular cycle, like kind of like Nintendo directs, are I feel like we'd be more accustomed to like what to expect, but the fact that this is this is coming along especially when we're so hungry for PS five news, it's just a little bit like it's even even when they're completely preparing us. It's still a little hard not to be like a little bit underwhelmed. Just like well, I wanted more. Than intended Iraq's have sort of pivoted recently with the their announcement of those like new mini rex doing, and so I think even even the cadence of what these things used to be is now going away and so that's I don't I don't know I feel that like it's cool to get like kind of information drops like this, but on the flip side like I'd. Rather. I'd rather they charge of the laser beam in blasts it when it's when it's big and strong, right? Yeah. It's. It's a weird thing because you know a I think it was maybe a month or two ago. They did almost like a state of play on the playstation blog of ten big upcoming indie Games for PS Horn ps five and I wonder like why wasn't that a state of play presentation Max to your point like the identity of what this is? This year state of play has been the. The last of US and goes to Sushi my showcases and last year was the first one where they focused so much on ps VR that people got very upset that it wasn't focused enough on ps four. So they pivoted in the second one. Had you know F F seven remake finally coming back in a big monster hunter, a ice born DLC showcase. Mike. Big Games that people wanted to see and it has been this uneven inconsistent thing that I don't really know what the identity of it is. and. So going into this presentation, the expectations are set, but

David Archer previews the Atlanta Falcons
"The Atlanta Falcons will do so with a former Falcons quarterback. Now he is their longtime color analysts on the radio network for Atlanta. And that is David Archer. David Hope all is. Well. Thanks for doing this. When we look at the Falcons, they made a big offseason acquisition getting Todd Gurley We don't know where the health is of Todd Gurley. What do you expect at a Todd Gurley coming over from l. A to Atlanta for this upcoming season? Well, be honest with you. I think we're expecting a lot of early and mainly in the Red zone. If you look at Todd Gurley's numbers, even with with so called quote unquote down near Around 900 yards rushing, still had 12 touchdowns. All 12 of those touchdowns came in the red Zone, and I think that Atlanta if they could find a way to run the football down close Help three up the talented weapons that Ryan has on the perimeter. Now, listen, you have a little bit more of a potent attack a little bit more looking a little bit more like what? You looked like a 16 when Avante Freeman and Tevin Coleman. We're carrying the ball down there close and created that problem in the run game. Atlanta has not had that over the last couple of seasons. I think that's where they expect Todd Gurley to make his main hey is down there in the red Zone. With the way that you probably have to manage his reps as a running back the rest of the running back room. Is there something that jumps out to you? Yeah, I think it's a good group. Really Do I think that when you look at Brian, Ill in the way, Brian Gillis Kamani together that Hawkins drafted a couple of years ago, Brian Handsome solid moments a year ago. Quadri Allyson. Kid at Pittsburgh rookie from a year ago. Uh, kind of woke himself. A little bit of a roll is a short yardage guy. Â£225 Goal line Guy, four touchdowns. Hopefully, you know, Smith can come back. He was injured in the game a year ago. I believe against the Rams in which he was trying to pick up a Blitzer, which he shouldn't be here should be doing, but he is an outstanding receiver out of the backfield. And a good change of pace back at the back, So they get to three young guys that I think you could lean on. And like you said, Take some of that. Load off. Assad, Girl. Let's get to the next down. And when we do so, we take a look at Matt Ryan and Julio Jones. The two big names in that organization. Do you still believe that this team could be a play off team once again with Matt Ryan and Julio Jones? I do, but it's you know, obviously, it's about you know your supporting cast and you do some things on the other side of the ball, and I'm sure there's a question you've got to worry about the defense's side the football, But there there's a little area in the offensive line. The left guard has been a little bit leaky, right guard's been a little bit leaky because of some injuries and things that they could shore up that into your part of the offensive line. Ryan's Like most classic quarterbacks climb in the pocket. They got to be able to give him that opportunity. Do so if you get into your pressure and accurate from problems, one game will help in that regard, but Yeah. Julio Jones, 16 seconds, 1300 yard seasons. Matt Ryan, nine consecutive 4000 yard seasons. I don't see the one those guys backing off. When you talk about that offensive line to follow up on that I'm a big fan of Matt Hennessy. Being a temple grad, really smart football player puts in a lot of work. Is he going to make an immediate impact in your number one? Yeah, There's always a question that he's certainly in the mix to be the starting guard. There's no question about that. I think that there's ah lot excitement around when he brings the table and and obviously the heir apparent, Alex Mack, probably its center. So Alex back in a little bit longer to still have a good football any But I need to put some guys around him that Khun taken, it could be in there and we had German Brown and James Carpenter guys that could not stay on the field. There was some solid moments from those two big veteran players, but they did not stay on the field and consistency. In the interior specialist that left guard spotted Kennedy ultimately will probably win that job and be the starter that guard let's get to the next down. All right, David Archer. When they flip the switch here and go to the other side of the ball defensively, it was an up and down year for the defense, but it seemed like they did finish in a better spot than what they did earlier on in the season. You could probably say that for the entire team with the Atlanta Falcons this division. Is loaded with offensive talent. You know what the Saints are. Now you have Tom Brady and the division with Tampa Bay, and I'll be curious to see what Teddy Bridgewater does with the Panthers. What's your read on the Falcons defense entering 2020 Well, it's an uncertain situation obviously went on God. Dante Fowler, Dad's pressure off the edge contact. McKinley realized what they thought they had when they drafted him a couple of years and the number one spot picked up Charles Haley, who, ironically, was in the same draft. And raided a route the same attack McKinley are Charles Harris. I'm sorry. Charles. Charles Charles Haley. Right way. I'd like to have the guy that was rushing the pastor there for both the Cowboys in the 40 Niners. That would be great, but Harris. He does have some raw talent there. Can't he realize that I'm the Falcon Tutelage will have to wait and see Grady dear. It's an emerging star in the tackle position and Marlon Davidson, Vienna and an interesting ad, a guy that has the versatility to play inside. Maybe in past situations and also play the perimeter as a 34 defensive didn't run down situations. The answer at all Burn second round draft pick of the fact that they think they've upgraded their defensive line. It'll have to be upgraded because you get extremely young secondary. Probably gonna have a rookie a corner starting your nickels, a second year guy in your other corners of third year, guys, So there's a lot of young players on the perimeter need to get some pass rush speed up the thought process for the quarterback. Let's get to the final down. Alright. I'm surprised that Dan Quinn is Bacca's the head football coach for the Lancer Falcons. What does he have to do this year to keep his job and Is that seats the warm because, like I said, I was surprised that they brought him back for this year. It is warm. I think that it's fortunate they brought him back because of the current situation with the pandemic and the uncertainties, so some continuity certainly has played into Atlanta Falcons off season. I think they've had a solid offseason, much as you can, with the limitations. They're attached to this year, So I think that it was good in retrospect that, uh, Mr Black decided to keep Dan Quint on, but I think he's got there. They've got a bit pushed for a playoff spot. I think they've got to be. They can't come out of the box one in seven. It's got to be a team. It's in the hunt of the entire way. As you said, it's going to be outstanding division with outstanding quarterback play, but they have to be in the hunt to be a part of the postseason play. If they do that. And I think the fans will be a little bit of stab on the wound for the fans. But if you get out to a slow start, it would not surprise me. If if Mr Blank made some kind of decision mid season on coach Boy and I think, coach when is the right guy for the job Now it's put up or shut up. He scored a touchdown will go for two here Oscar. One more question This team was 11 5 We all know the deal they were in the Super Bowl blew the 28 23 lead. The next year, they did go 10 and six, the last two years. It's seven and nine. If you had to identify the biggest reason why this team has regressed, and I know they've had some injuries to but overall if it's not the health of the team, what's the biggest thing that you look at? Why this team wasn't able to recreate that magic from 2016 and 2017? I think their inconsistency ball on both sides of the football in conversion, down situations and in the red zone. I think Atlanta's done a great job of moving the ball from 20 to 20 But when they get in the red zone, they bogged down and settle for too many threes. And I think in turn the defense's side of the football. What about 22 23 scoring defense coming up 25 points a game. They've got to find a way to get more stops in the red zone. That's probably the answer that you could probably get from all teams struggled and not made the playoff teams, but I certainly think That that's identifiable with the Falcons over the last couple years, the inability down deep in the red Zone both on offensive defense, Julio Jones, he's Ah Hall of Fame player. We all know that one of the better wide receivers in the league He's only had one year of double digit touchdowns, going back to 2012 when he had 10 TUC maybe 10 touchdowns in his fortunes this year. Well, I think he's certainly capable of it. But you got an outstanding receiver on the other side of Calvin Ridley, who's realized his abilities down in the red Zone Pretty close. I think Aidan hearse is going to be a seamless transition from Austin Hooper tight end spot So there are a lot of weapons from that Ryan to get the football too. Don't forget Todd Gurley and how good he is at the back catching the football as well. So I I would say no, I think he's going to be 89 touchdowns. I don't think he goes double digits, but I think there's a lot of guys around him. They're going to score touchdowns. Look for guys somewhere between 13 14 guys catch touchdown passes issue. Say that we appreciate it. Thanks so much. You be well, my
The Evils of Election Incompetence
"There are lots of problems with elections in America but one problem a less scrutinized problem is that Democrats are unwilling to fundamentally reform system that really needs reformation because this is seen as doing president trump's bidding. Yes. Of course, Democrats are very much interested in expanding the franchise and voter access being a top issue. But when it comes to competently counting ballots and putting machines in place that can accommodate everyone who wants to vote. There's less of an incentive to get it right especially in places without a strong Republican countervailing force. Congressman nearly elect. Torres. WAS WNYC's Brian Lehrer show and while he said that waiting six weeks was unacceptable his words he framed his concerns about voting delays and because thousands of mail in ballots were thrown outs disenfranchisement I think to gently here was Torres look I am concerned about. You know the administration election during covid nineteen, but the president has no. Credibility. And I worry that some of the hyperbolic rhetoric about the integrity of New York City's elections. Up plays into the hands of Donald from WHO would love nothing more than to de legitimize vote by mail. There is a difference between administering an election imperfectly. As we did here in new. York. City in rigging election the reasonable evidence of rigging election fraud. This is the first time New York City has undertaken universal by mail. which is a massive undertaking. And whenever you're experimenting with something new. There's bound to be growing pains growing pains. Well, we're not that generous with Georgia and we shouldn't be and we shouldn't be that generous with New York just because trump is exaggerating the risks of mail in voting doesn't mean there aren't lots of problems with mail in voting maybe the and many of them are by his design look at what he's doing with the postmaster general. Let me say that but. The flaws of mail in voting or regular person voting are not about stealing an election but that doesn't mean that they're not about voters not being heard. Let me make this analogy. So there was this huge explosion in Beirut and the death toll right now is over one hundred fifty. Now at first thoughts went to terrorism and if it were to have been terrorism that would be a huge worry, it doesn't seem to. Be The case that the explosion was because of terrorism it wasn't evil. It was just incompetent but those one hundred and fifty plus people are just as dead no matter. The cause the area is just as leveled incompetence isn't as easily Vilnai's as evil doing but in a way that makes it seem like a less urgent problem to tackle. But I'm here to tell you it's not or elections or shambles because there's little. Incentive to get them working correctly by the people who are in office because those are the very people who the shambolic system in the long run works out for in new. York's case it's the very long run. We can't wait until there's a crisis on a presidential election data. Realize there is already a crisis going on as we speak
Pikmin 3 Deluxe and Our Nintendo Backlogs
"My Name Is Casey Fritos I'm your host, and this week I am joined by Brian Tahoe. Hi Everyone Seth macy. And Logan. Plants. And I just wanted to mention that Logan Plant has now been working as production assistant for the last year. So thank you so much for everything that you've done for us. We super appreciate it and we welcome you on the show this week. It's been an awesome year of NBC. Got This GIG last August starting my senior year of College McMahon. Twenty. It's GONNA be year. It's going to be the best year for me. At prediction was was very untrue, but I've loved working on NBC. Well, we did get to do a thing that we do everybody who's worked with gene for year, which is broken your house in spray painted the logo on your shirt. So yeah. Yeah, got. Bad. It's still drying right here. Comfortable. I Apologize. But Hey guys so much for joining me this week. Let's start off by talking about the big news, which actually Nintendo finally decided to reveal something before recorded. So I'm very grateful for that thanking Intendo, but we finally known antennas next scheduled release. It will be picked three deluxe out on Astra with. For Fifty, nine, ninety, nine. No. Yeah. Yeah. Okay. So You Brian, we're your pigment fan I look pick. Yeah, you. excited. Yeah, yes. Yes. Yes. I, am I'm all for. Every last great. We you exclusive game to no longer be that and to be brought to a platform where millions more people can enjoy it. And I've picked threes really fun. It's really good game. What I'm a little annoyed about with this is that. They. D listed the version. Basically, the exact moment that they announced this version and the version was on was selling for twenty dollars. So. That's kind of A. Weird situation. 'cause like. They're. They're basically telling their fans like if. If you have access to switch, this is where you'll have to play this game because you won't be able to get this anywhere else for cheaper. And also that the it's it's three times the price. Now, they're adding stuff to it, which obviously, we'll get into a, but yet my gut reaction was gay pigment three, and then also boo to the price of then also, you're totally going to pay that price, get pigment three under switch. So yeah, you're totally right. The an I also wanted to mention that we're bringing up the kind of skis tactic of taking it off the we shop. You. Guys noticed that all of the the vouchers that people bought I think it was, it was one hundred dollars for for two vouchers, one voucher per game, and they expired on July thirty first, which is right. Before they made this announcement I know at least one person in our podcast forums on facebook mentioned that they actually called Nintendo customer service and asked for the. Vouchers to get an extension and they granted him the extension by another year. It is now too late to do that. Ari. Or maybe not maybe if you have expired vouchers sitting around, you can call customer service and have them I'm so sorry, Nintendo customer service workers. You guys get a flux of collars because of this, but hey, it's worth a shot right especially if you haven't used them yet. But that was kind of embarrassed about this whole thing to like you mentioned, the vouchers are to one hundred bucks, which means if you buy, you know sixty bucks a sixty dollar game you're saving. Ten Bucks per game, which is a great deal. But you. They stopped selling them like a year ago. Yesterday, basically, two days ago, and with the expiration, you could put them towards stuff that was available for preorder. But because Pittman three wasn't available for preorder. You couldn't put it towards that Nintendo has been pretty quiet about. Announcing Twenty Twenty lineup arrested twenty twenty WANNA and so. You didn't really have anywhere to put that money and then. They retire those vouchers in three days. Later, there were like Pittman three and so A. Libertarian Carriers I. Wish I'd have panned out a little bit better. Yeah not crazy about I will. I would have been more forgiving if they announced it like the day, the vouchers expired because then at least people would be like I, have to spend it on this. Now, I mean, it still would have been a little bit questionable, but not nearly as various as this was i. don't Know Logan Seth? Did you guys by those doctors? No, I. Didn't I thought. It was I would just spend the extra ten bucks. I'm not really a digital player I mostly get physical stuff, but I thought another weird thing about it is like a third of the Games. You could get with voucher dollars. You weren't even saving anything on a bunch of the options. So that was another kind of weird part about the voucher system. I was just never onboard with the whole thing. You. No I didn't buy the batches. I. Actually Forgot

"So Megan Post a picture herself with a shirtless machine gun, Kelly. And she captains it. Achingly beautiful boy. My heart is yours, So that's what she puts up. And then Brian Austin Green goes. Oh, yeah, he posts up. Oh, there it is there achingly beautiful boy. My heart is yours. Apparently, the two of them just stand around taking mirror pictures of themselves, you know? Well, they're both beautiful. People think that has a tendency to play a role, and, you know Yes. So all right. What is what? As David Silver Dio So David Silver a k a. Brian Austin green. Ah, he responded by posting pictures of their three sons. Along with his older son from a previous relationship and captured it achingly beautiful boys. My heart is your hearse.

Mom just read wrote that she's been making out for hours with this boy that she met. Great. Thanks, Mom. Yeah. Thanks, Mama. Wait. We can't wait to hang out with machine gun, Kelly.
Evan Kuo: AMPL - the Controversial Digital Currency With an Elastic Supply
"I began our journey there. But just to set the context like to introduce to your audience. Audience. What ampoules are? So the foundation is called ampleforth foundation and we have a protocol called ampleforth protocol, but the ample amp pl is actually a token. It is a non collateralized cryptocurrency like bitcoin with an important twist, its supply elastic, and what this means is on a daily basis. The token in protocol will automatically increase or decrease the quantity of tokens held in user wallets based on twenty four hour weighted volume price. Let's the mission of influence. So what was the thing that drove you to start this? What needs? Did you see it flipping? So the mission of ampleforth this to become an essential building block of an alternative financial ecosystem, and really I think what's interesting is how we came to this realization that we've been needed a building block or how we even decided that that would be an interesting thing to produce and just kind of going back to the beginning of the journey with me and brandon like I said were thinking very deeply about why bitcoin was designed the way it was because it was so obviously difficult to scale and. Two things, kind of emerged from that thought process number one, it was designed to counteract a sovereign monopoly and that was very different than our minds from say a free market monopoly. So say, for example, you're not happy with how Google or facebook function you, and I are free to go and create a search engine to our liking or a social network to our liking and compete on the open market. Now, they have a lot of advantages being incumbent, but nobody would tell us You cannot compete with Google, you cannot innovate upon facebook we're free to try. But. In the case of money, it's not the case, right? So historically, people have tried to create their own currencies like even liberty dollar meeting their own coins started used them in circulation in been stopped by the government, and that's the difference between a sovereign monopoly, and if market monopoly and one thing that struck us is that the bitcoin protocol great lengths to counteract the sovereign monopoly in being censorship persistent. Made huge concessions along the way. For this reason we think that if if the service that you're producing doesn't really require that level of censorship resistance, you might be handicapping yourself a great deal in attempting to say create a better search engine on a smart contract programming platform because of scale and usability limitations, and so on and so forth. How would you say the bitcoin protocol has restricted itself and basically you said earlier that you think it's not scalable. What's behind? That can go a little bit into technical detail. What exact you thing is not scalable. I think as a layer one blockchain. It has a limited in TPS right and as the ledger gets bigger and bigger, you run into all sorts of congestion issues and you let's say comparing to something like visa, it can't hear handle nearly as many transactions per second, and again, this is thinking back to our interpretation of the original paper title, appeared appeared digital cash, and of course, our naive understanding of money at the time was that caches that which I use. Use to purchase coffee. There's something different about how bitcoin is designed rate, but I also want to just move forward to the next point of realization that we came to, which is really important and the bitcoin protocol succeeded in articulating scarcity in a purely digital context, right. So unlike golden natural commodities, which naturally scarce by the physical limitations of the world, the bitcoin protocol was able to define scarcely using just an algorithm and that's very unique in the digital world like. Many things are scarce, digital world somebody takes a photo, it gets replicated. You can't really undo that you can't say that this is the only instance of that digital photo. So that was a really big idea and the takeaway for me. Brandon was that the the most salient opportunity to apply this sort of technology is money, and then what happened was we began to wonder about what was wrong with money rates. We saw that bitcoin has succeeded in creating a censorship resistant fix apply acid that's analogous to a digital gold. But what was even wrong with gold? Is there anything wrong? Wrong with gold and you know we really recruited a very helpful and we're super grateful for this team of investors. In advisors. You pentire capital true ventures, founder collective, even Brian Armstrong and folks from the Hoover Institute at Stamford, which is,

"Welcome back to the show. Okay so Monday morning. I get back on the phone with Brian Colon in from every song and he says hey so I went into our database. I looked at our Christmas playlist. We have eleven versions of. We wish you a merry Christmas in our database and Brian. Deane's is not among them. What yeah it was really weird on the Friday. He was like I recognize the song and on Monday. He was like. I don't know I guess I made a mistake because it's not there and I'm trying to think of possible reasons why that would happen. And he said that like one of the possibilities is maybe it is in our database is just not coming up in my searches you know. Is there the possibility that something happened with our systems? Something rogue happened and somebody uploaded a song and they got the artists the song title and some other things wrong in the Meta data entry. Sure it's just the whole cascading series of errors that would have to happen to kind of put a Phantom Song in there and get all the data wrong and then just to have ripped it off of Youtube in the first place which is something that we don't do the chances of that happening. It's kind of like a comet hitting a comet over your house right. So that's you know or or you know getting attacked by a shark and Grizzly bear the same day like it's you know it's not impossible and I can't sit here and say that it's impossible but I mean it really. I wrack my brain to think how it would be possible. So what's the other possibility? Well he also said like maybe it was never in our database at all. Maybe someone at a Kroger hacked into their their system and we're playing it off a CD. No but that's said that was as likely to bear attack. Yeah if you're going to hack into your corporate. I like his ability to rate probabilities. Millions according to horrific. If you're going to lake hack into like like when you have read every time had a retail job where it was like canned music and somebody like figure out how to get there and music on it wasn't to play like more seasonal hits like it was to play music that humans light. Listen I am so tired of this demon Martin Standard what. I really wanted to hack into from youtube players. You Merry Christmas so every song. Brian had like one last theory about what might have happened. Which at the time. I found very convincing. Which is then he just had like. Imagine yourself in brine shoes right. At the moment he walked into Kroger. You're in a grocery store a busy time of year. There's a lot of people. There's a lot of noise you know you're hearing bits and pieces. Maybe especially over the store speakers. Which sometimes aren't the best and you know stuff in the challenging environment. If you asked me to put money on it I would say you know this. It was probably a case of the song being this hurt in the store. It's difficult for me to say that I make music myself and it's difficult to say because you you know. If you'd asked me that question I would be one part of Barris. The one point. Maybe a little bit annoyed that you would ask the question in the first place. So he's saying it's like your clients mistake. Yeah what he's saying is like if you're in a circumstance where it's loud where your kids distracting. You like it's possible to miss hear your song and like sure. It's possible that Song Brian is lying to me and like I can't see their database and I have no idea whether he's telling the truth but like what's more likely. Is it more likely that ever song went on Youtube found a version of? We wish you. Merry Christmas. Like twenty-five views ripped it in violation of copyright law. Put it on their playlist to play and Kroger as all over the country and then Brian Deane just happened to walk into one as it was playing or is it more likely that he just misheard. The song like people miss here songs all the time also ever song. Brian told us that there is a version of. We wish you merry Christmas in their system. That does sound a lot like Brian. Deane's and he thinks that that is the likely hope bread. I don't know dude. I still just have a hard time imagining that. A musician would not recognize a song they recorded. I mean if it was an instrumental cover. It would make some sense to me but there was one thing that was nagging at me. Which is like do you remember how? I Talk to Allah. Brian's bandmates yeah one of them. This guy's AC. I asked him directly like. Do you think that Brian just could have misheard? His own song. Anzac was like honestly. Brian has one of the best ears of anybody that I've ever met. His ear is UNCANNY I can't imagine that he would be wrong. Brian like is the person who sends me clips of raised theme from Star Wars next to the emperor's themed show how they're how they're how similar and predicted the end of the Star Wars Movie. At least a little bit Based only on the musical themes from the first doors yes the soundtrack and and business on the recurring. Musical motifs came up with spoilers for the movie. Yeah what a lunatic insane so I just wanted to test Brian's ear like was he actually as good as that claimed he was. Now what you need to know about Brian. Is that beyond just star wars. He's like scores in general. Okay so I. I called up musician Brian and told him whatever song. Brian had told me that they couldn't find a song in the database and at first he was like really questioning himself. Do you think I'm crazy? I'm starting to think I'm crazy. And maybe all I mean a piano version with some drums and a base of We wish you merry Christmas may be sound similar. We aren't sure if you're crazy and we WANNA find out okay. So we have come up with a game that tests. How good you are at recognizing music. Oh Jeez and it will help us understand why you think that it was your song that you heard in the storm. Okay okay since I know that you are John Williams Fan and since Zach specifically mentioned your ability to pick out star wars music. I am going to play some star wars or not star wars music for you. Tell me if if it if it is from star wars or not we go. This is track number one star wars not stores..

"Okay. Yeah this her hip differently right now. See You remember that we? We spoke to a former employee of the install radio network on background. Told me like the company was so desperate for Christmas music that the idea that they would go to Youtube and Grab Bryan. Song was like not insane to them. Brian from ever song did actually confirm the first part of that theory. Which is they are slammed. Every holiday season but also. He told me that this season just keeps getting longer. I remember a study that we read That was testing number Christmas songs and of testing the appetite public appetite for for the very songs that we're talking about the most familiar. Christmas songs and what came back was people you know. Sixty to seventy percent in in in that range of the people in the survey were saying. You can't start early enough you know. It was a little bit of a surprise for us but it's so people will say one thing I think. Think and say well. It's kind of a trope Christmas music. I here in it but deep down inside. They like hearing a little Christmas music and in October. Apparently so if people like to hear the songs around October like how early do you have to start thinking about Christmas? Season programming like what to Wednesday July? That's a whole process. It's it's it's like we we mobilized for war in around August. Yeah so I was starting to feel like I was on the right track and I asked every Song Brian. Hey can I play you musician? Brian's we wish you every Christmas and when I did ever Brian was like Oh yeah I recognize that he recognizes yes. I believe that was part of our Christmas. Mix that we put together I WANNA I WANNA say. The song was probably used within the last two years or so. He said that he was pretty confident that he'd heard this before because they listen to their holiday playlist in the office over the holidays. They eat their own dog food. Yeah basically that's like how Matt Lever was like wanted and one this argument but was like we should have in the bathrooms Gimblett. We should have not premium but free spotify because we should have the experience of listening to ads because listeners. Listen to ads which was like the most. I don't think I've ever disagreed. Philosophically with Matt harder the net decision and every time. I go to the bathroom makes me. But it's idiots mentality don't WANNA go into it. Got New big fight with madly R- about that you did or yeah really. I was like I thought I was crazy. I got into a big fight with him where it's basically like. I don't understand what you're doing this. You're making this a less pleasant place to work while you do that so I felt and he was like in his response was like you. Yelling at me is making this less pleasant place to work. And that's probably right and first of all this is on slack. So I'm not yelling at you very strongly you have a very you have like when you're yelling over dykes. It's very odd yelling slack voice but but I thought that I could move him in any direction but he is so certain that this is a great thing that he's doing the worst is spotify now runs. Ads For reply all Someti- oh so I get to be pooping and hear my own voice it rules. It's like a nightmare from him so bad anyway. They played Christmas including Brian. Deane Song So. I asked Brian from ever Sung. How they got their hands on it. How would ever song end up with programming song like that? I guess I would say I would ask your listeners. If they uploaded the song to Maybe the CD baby You have deals with a number of smaller companies. I don't think that he did. He told me that the only place he really put it up as Youtube. Is that a thing where ever song or in store audio network will look for songs on Youtube. If that was the you know I I don't. I don't believe that we've ever just onto YouTube Now so I would. I would say that I did. They have any CD's made I think they burned their own CDs like they actually just had a town like one of those CD burning towers on their computers and just burned it that way. Yeah that's interesting. I mean I have to look but I can tell you You know just by the way that we work It would have to come through. An aggregate or a hundred percent of our music comes from those aggregate is so Ryan was basically like these aggregated that we work with have just massive massive music libraries. And so it'd be stupidly labor for them to go hunting for new Christmas songs on Youtube. That weren't even in the format that they need them to be into play in the store. It's easier for us to to be provided with a file. That's you know in a in what they call a Kodak compression technology that you're ready to go Sort a little bit of a mystery. Then yeah he was out of town when this when I had this first conversation with him but he said look. I'm going to go back to our office. Check in our database. And then I'll be able to tell you exactly how we got this song so this first interview was on a Friday and he told me to call him back on Monday. And at this point I am super stoked because I'm like we're going to figure out how this song ended up in Kroger after the break. Brian.

"So the first and most obvious thing that I wanted to look into was that Brian said the only place on the Internet he put the song was on Youtube. But he's just one of four members of the band that recorded it so one of those people could have you know published somewhere or given it to someone who worked at the. Macon Kroger so I wanted to like get in touch with his bandmates and I got in touch with this guy. John Who Played Guitar. Played Bass on it. Can you think of any reason why it would be there? I can only attributed to someone's impeccable taste but you weren't like sending you weren't like secretly uploading this to spotify or or sending executives or anything I have. I have a CD tower. That I can. And I think I made about fifty copies gave them out to six or eight people. And that's it and I don't know that I gave it anybody who lives in making and then there was Johnson. Zach Hazak. Yes this is Alex Goldman. How're you doing? And he was like no wasn't me? I did not pass it onto anyone. In fact I was a couple years old lots going on. I'd almost forgotten that we done the project me on this so there was one last possibility. Which is this guy named Miguel? Who played drums on the track but he didn't even remember ever according it in the first place so. I'm pretty sure it wasn't him who leaked it to kroger right okay. So if Brian and his bandmates didn't know how the song ended up at the Kroger. Maybe the people that work at that Kroger might have some idea so I decided to give them a call department. They help you yes. We call the floral department because our belief was that it wouldn't be so busy and they would have a moment's talk. Ooh I like that. Yeah do you know where the music that the that is played over the speakers at Kroger comes from? Oh No I do not. I mean I'm assuming they have their own radio station they use. I mean I really don't then. She transferred me to the customer service desk at her store and they were like. I have no idea where the music comes from is piped in from somewhere so I was like well. It's probably piped in from like Kroger corporate so I decided to call the National Kroger Customer Service Line and they were also like we have no idea. Honestly I'm not sure that they get Pandora. Sure they suffer there. I'm not really sure about it. He didn't know the answer. I started sending emails to people at Kroger Corporate. In the meantime I was just calling Kroger. Employees like all across the country. Just trying to get a sense of how music in the store even works just like would it be possible for some rogue employees to like grab the Oxford and plug in their iphone? There's really no way to do that. Unless you're using the The like the intercom own kind of music. That plays all the time in the store. Yes so there. There's no way for me to adjust like the station. I I can just volume and that's got it also. Pj if you really want to curb employees. Just ask him about the Christmas music you you think of the worst Christmas Music. You've never heard that's like can you give me some examples? Santa Claus and every song it wasn't it wasn't like the song you know. Listen to you. It's the bad cover version by someone you've never heard of. One woman said that one time she was in the store and she heard five different versions of Jingle Bells back toback. Oh can you imagine? It's so painful. Yes there's a lot of room for like jazz. Improvisation and that's either no. You can't really make it your own. Also it was a total long shot but while I had him on the phone I played them Bryan Song to see if they recognized it. Sis familiar to you at all it. Very welcome plate over the holiday but I but then there's this one woman who worked at a kroger in Colorado. Does this ring a bell.

"On? This one is much more confounding because the more I worked on it like the less certain I became the answer and I basically come out the other side believing two contradictory things simultaneously which is absolutely painful for my very linear brain which is incapable of abstraction of any kind. Okay so my hope is if I tell you the story you might be able to help me come closer to understanding where the truth lies okay. I can't promise I will like insightful. Fighting the truth but I'm excited to see if Ivan. Pinon think of this less as a super tech support more as a philosophical journey on the nature of truth all right do you WanNa do you WanNa wear like professor. Jackie tweet out. I was actually thinking about a tiny I was actually thinking in. The tradition of the classic Philosophers Wear Toga and one of those rings of like of like leaves that they wear around their years. Okay what's the story so we heard from a listener named Brian? Deane who got in touch with us just after Christmas. He lives in Savannah Georgia. He works for Gulfstream. The company that makes the airplanes. Hey Brian can you hear me good? How are you and this story actually started a few years ago when Brian got a new piano. Extremely excited about having this piano and to celebrate that I had a couple of friends who play the saxophone and the drums and bass and recording equipment. I said let's do Christmas album Just through the joy of having piano So we recorded a Christmas album in my living room as wholesome friend activity. I know right so that was back in two thousand sixteen and he uploaded it to Youtube. He burned a couple copies for family and friends and he basically forgot about it and then this past Christmas is driving back from a family visits Chicago when his daughter has to p so they stop in. Macon Georgia says about three hours from their house at a kroger because and I didn't realize this brand is like the grocery stores the best place to go back from because no one's ever in the bathrooms love of grocery store bathroom so they get out of the car. They hustle into the grocery store and sort of like midway down the aisle. He stops and looks up. I was in the frozen food department. And they're playing Christmas music. This is December thirty first. He stands there staring at the speaker above him. Because it's playing a version of we wish you a merry Christmas with a piano. Part feels very familiar. The first thought that went through my mind was oh. I thought I made up that piano. Lick on we. You Merry Christmas but I must have stolen it or heard it from somewhere because here it is playing and then as I listened a little more. Oh my God I didn't steal the slick this is me. Brian is convinced that the version that he heard a kroger is the exact one that he made in his living room. So here. And what's going through your mind when you hear yourself on the a speakers at the Kroger. I mean just complete disbelief. Just shock absolute shock but by that point. I had made it to the bathroom so there was literally another guy in there and I couldn't contain myself. You know and bathroom medicate law number one. It was like and I got. I got to say something. This is crazy but I did this in my living room so funny. I think he actually sets up to like well. That's that's cool man. How can this possibly happen that one? I'd be playing there and to literally be there to hear it. It was. It was a bizarre experience so he is hearing his own version of we wish. Merry Christmas and a kroger but he didn't publish it or sell it to Kroger Corporate. Anything like that no okay. Do you want to hear it right here? We go the other thing. You should know that this is number thirty seven of this song on Youtube and at least five of those views are looking at it in preparation for this kind of a jazzy version yet. He's a jazz. I was wondering how you recognize. It was his but I feel like it is actually distinct. Recognize that right okay. So it's like the grocery store is either pirating music off of Youtube or one of his friends stole the music and sold it to the grocery store. I have no idea but right. After he used the bathroom. He rushed over to the customer service desk and it was like what's going on here and they were friendly but just kind of came up with a lean over and yelled to someone else. How do we play music? And they said Oh something like I had to Muzak And I kind of I kind of got the feeling These people. I'm not sure if I'm going to be able to push this with them. What I want it to be. Is that ninety nine percent of the time they just use like some paid for you know legitimate music licensing thing that this one time just like somebody at Kroger just heard this and they loved it so much that they needed to hear it in the store I used to do you know the Mannheim Steamroller Christmas now Mannheim. Steamroller is like a prog rock Christmas stuff. And it's that sounds bad and worse than you can possibly and I used to I. I used to work at a convenience store where they played the the Mannheim Steamroller Christmas album from November to January and it was the worst adventure where they played like this one cassette tape that I swear to God only head Monster Mash and attack of the killer tomatoes both good songs the first two thousand times shore so he asked me to answer two questions for him. The first one obviously is like how did the song get there and the second was like if this song is being piped into Kroger's all over the country he should get the money. Are they do any money and how much they're definitely do some money. You Take People's music and play it right so that was my mission okay..

We're seeing education but also just seeing it in life in general is that there are issues with being able to read somebody's body language and really understand what they're saying when you communicating digitally when you're in a space with somebody your brain unconsciously subconsciously read so many cues about what their intent is and how they're thinking what they're saying to put context to what's going on and that's really hard to To See in a zoom conference. There's a big emotional toll that comes from that because our brains are working in overdrive with the sub-conscious reading and trying to figure out what's going on and so we're we're we're we're struggling with that and there's an emotional toll that can come from connecting online and we have to recognize the bed.

"brian" Discussed on The Moment with Brian Koppelman
"Hey is the moment I'm Brian complimented thanks for listening today's guest is you not in some crazy Meta sense but you are today's guests because I asked on here and on twitter for your questions and the response some of your questions surprise me some didn't surprise me there was a good deal of I'd say similar concern expressed a lot of it had to do with some kind of insecurity about whether you should be tried to do this kind of work creative work or not and I'm GonNa give you my best answer to each of these questions as I can get to you need to know that I don't necessarily hold myself out as having definitive answers these questions and some of them are quite difficult to answer with any authority for anyone especially the Russian I got many times which is how do I know if I'm good enough and the reason that that question is so hard to answer and why it's so prevalent is the same in it's because it's a foundational primal early life question and question that has as much to do with the way you were raised the way you grew up the way your parents express love didn't express love as it is is about whether you're really a good enough artist so there are there are things one can look at metrics one can look at it can view an indication of whether your impulses toward this artistic life seemed to have a chance to hey some kind of dividends to you but I don't believe that's at the heart of the question at the heart of the question is the desire for some outside force to tell you not only are you good enough is your work good enough you essentially are good enough that you don't have to a change that you don't have to run the fastest store that you don't have to learn to walk the fast stored who read the fastest but dead in fact what you are made of is worthy of Love Sport Protection respect all that stuff and so if you're somebody who asks that question frequently about the work you're doing and I want to separate it out right because yes it's a very legitimate question to say hey I wrote this short story I've sent it out about twenty times it got rejected Twenty Times Hey Mrs Editor Ms Editor Mr editor mix editor hey is this story essential really fucked up or Ken this story be fixed that's quite a different question from am I good enough am I crazy and I want us to be clear about which question we're asking and I want us to be clear about why where asking that question and and one of the questions you can find an answer for kind of easily or in a kind of straightforward manner and often the answer that one we don't know yet the easy one right is if you wanna quit because or if you want to try to sell the things you can on to me the the question was do I still get something out of doing the creative work if I still get something out of doing the creative work that I'm gonNA keep doing the creative work and I'm and as long as the creative work is making me feel more alive during the day not less alive during the day as long as the creative work is inspiring me as long as it's making me seem kind or those that I love because I'm engaged in something that matters to me then the more I'm going to do it and that was magnitude before we sold I gripped if instead it is pulling you down then I would look at it but I wouldn't look at it from a standpoint of has the thing sold yet or I wouldn't let that be the definitive thing and whether you continue you or you don't continue continue as long as the work is fulfilling continue as long as when you get up in the morning that's the thing you WanNa do now that doesn't mean it's easy to do that doesn't mean you're never dealing with a sense of feeling either blocked or stopped somehow what I'm talking about when you look at it overall is it additive to your existence or is it taking something away from her existence and if you can answer sleet it's additive than I you know I think keep going because I don't really understand how to give advice in the opposite direction I don't really I in the purpose of giving advice in the opposite direction and I'm not surprised this is the most frequently asked question I've said many times that the line between being has successful artists in delusional very thin and that line when I say it is true but there is a little bit of glibness to it because it it subtracts the pain of not knowing so I I understand that there is a pain of not knowing I understand there's a fear attached with not knowing but that's the terrain we're in the terrain of creating stuff for the terrain of making stuff the terrain of changing things by definition were in scary terrain and I choose to embrace it aw and yet easy from my perch on a certain level because I've had success at it and because I've had rewards people also I'd be lying if I didn't say that the fact that people respond to the work didn't matter to me it does it makes it easier in the fallow periods to know that on the other side is the very real possibility of an audience because I had one before so that in the times when it wasn't going so well commercially I didn't really ask myself whether I was a person who could tell these stories do this that had been proven to me already that said in the beginning that was the case and I just knew I had to do it and so that's the answer to sort of the most frequently asked question and think it's a very deep question and I understand it and now let's move on to a couple of other questions and maybe will circle maybe circle back so what's the next question I want to answer okay it's related Jacqueline said this quote of yours is so powerful to me in the quote is blocked people become toxic they become toxic themselves into the people around them and the person wrote in says I recognize so many my own family members in this quote people who could have had bruin creative lives and instead became toxic how void the same fate and get unblocked we're living in among these people has led me to believe that create a fulfilled life is not for me I specially struggle with this because I benefited from my parents stable career choices Sinoe college and yet I see how they denied their own dreams and desires for mine never became fulfilled people yeah well me too uh not the they didn't become fulfilled people my parents both of them in their own way were and are fulfilled my mom passed away my dad's still thriving but I definitely also had college paid for the people who were responsible I've often talked about the fact that one of the reasons I was able to dream and live a life that was beyond life of just trying to take care of me and mine was because I didn't know college debt I had family that there was a safety net there for me I college paid for an I could figure out how I wanna live but the question of how to get through the block for me as complicated as it is as disturbing it is and you know I was blocked writer until I was thirty this is my foundational story and it's true Until I found a way through so painful to be blocked by felt that toxicity thing happening and I didn't want to be toxic to those that I loved and I did straightforward things I I wrote down what I wanted to be doing how I wanted to feel and I knew that was doing something creative I couldn't do it and I read the book the artist's way Julia Cameron I started doing morning pages everyday three longhand pages every morning and doing the morning ages something happened and reading her book and doing the exercises and I would say her book and Stephen Fields Book the war of art and I pressed field on the podcast I those tools are just they work if you do it if you do the way if you read the book can you do the exercises you will be presented with the opportunity to get past this block and to create the work that you WanNa Create I can't say that strongly enough the power of three longhand pages every morning it tips your unconscious tips your subject watches out onto the page it could you pass the perfectionism it gets you past the guilt which you here in your letter guilt but he in your even if your family tells you they want you to responsible the truth is they did all this work so that you can try to soar parents terrified side of their children not being able to survive so their fear is GonNa make them look at you askew if you are trying something different in that but that's fear don't let that don't catch that fear it's contagious don't catch it and just do a little bit of work every day into this this idea one page today for years three hundred and sixty five pages even one page day for a year minus Sundays or Saturdays is over three hundred pages so and that's three screen plays where that's a novel you don't have to carve a giant chunk of time or you have to do is produce a little bit of work every day and then you'll find yourself living a life that feels a bit more.

"Perfect. I know. Thank your lawn. Listeners. This is Brian, I am out and we're getting married in three hundred seventy five days seventy five. It's just constant March. The countdown continue it does seems to faster and faster every week. Welcome to Brian Mel get married. This is the podcast where we Brian Mel talk to you about our wedding planning and some things we found out along the way, one thing rest, you is, we are not certified wedding planners in any way, not even close. We probably don't even know anything more than you do, but we have been doing our research, and we hope that through our experiences and us answering any questions that you might have the you learn a little bit about planning your wedding. Whether you're just going to be like we're loping I mean, we're not dealing with this definitely is some pros and cons to all things, I think, on this week's episode of Brian Mel get married. We are covering wedding registries who this is where I get stuff. Yes, you did. This is where people give me stuff. Yes, or us. But yes. And really fancy like three hundred dollar nights sent. I mean you can register for it, but somebody supposed to buy that really fancy three hundred dollar knife set. So what's the deal with wedding registries? Why did that start? Why is that a thing? Why do I get to put my name on a list and have people? Get me stuff. Well originally really had nothing to do with you. It would have to do with me. Oh. Actually, wait, wait. No, no. Are you sir? I'm pretty sure like we're going to start talking about, like wedding dowries and stuff. Right. Still technically to do well, yes, dowries go back, but they still technically to do with the bride because it was, essentially you and your family. Hang my family for me. How much? Twelve dollars seventy five cents the same amount. It was willing to spend on my college being invited to the wedding. Usually it would include, you know, land animals treks of land, money or other forms of historical wealth. Historical. Well, sure. Yeah. Basically, interestingly enough the first week four dollars. The first recorded dowry was exchanged in three thousand BC. Okay. That's that's all well and good. But how do we go from me getting huge tracts of land to people getting maker? Yeah. You gotta fast forward on this because as time went on things changed as marriage change. What marriage mentioned evolved. Yes. Inserted marriage well through Elvis presence in such changed. If you go into like the renaissance, for example, marriage, chests were thing, these chests held all of the bright future wife goods right up there with huge tracts of land, which she would then take to her groom's house. It was sort of an early form of a hope chest. So, you know, unmarried women would collect things that they would need to embark on married, life linens, things like that. This is kept them in there. They did on us until they were married. I just have a chest of linens towels and sheets. And Dell's heats. And things like that. Guess nothing more I could possibly need other than just clean sheets. And tells I have always found that entire thing to be very weird in very strange. But the thing is, is that as a for a hope chest, you really talk to your mom, my mom, they would know what that is. That was a thing when our parents were growing up that this is what they did like they had hoped Chester. This is my mom, I who is her cedar chess thing that she still has that would've exactly been it. That cedar chests would have been that what they used for that. My mom had one as while it got destroyed in a flood, however many, many years ago, it was just smell weird. But yes that is what the dress was in and things like that. That's yeah. That was essentially, what that was women had these chests. So we moved from there from there, too. Eleven key basket. Ooh. This sounds like it just got a little kinky, everybody drafts their keys in a bowl, and then you just take a key later on. No, this is not wife. Swap. Oh. This is an American thing. This was solely. An American thing American brides would be gifted other key basket, which would give her keys to unlock doors, chests, cupboards, and things in her new home. You can get into your house. Exactly it symbolized her new status. This is what that did this symbolize status lady of the house. Cube

"How? So yes, but don't feel bad just inviting people to the party, a part of that, and enjoying them or having them come in. Say Hello to you and enjoy your presence. Joy the festivities. Yes, they can enjoy your party. They can enjoy that part of it, but they don't necessarily need to be there for the entire thing. They may not be that close. This is a great thing for co workers. Those are the people that are like the satellites. So it's not like the moon. The moon's, always there moons kinds of moon and the earth rock-hard satellites come and go. Their orbits can sometimes be ellipses therefore, they're further away, sometimes closer. Sometimes they crashed into space debris in fall, plummeting to the earth, or Corinne, outerspace. Never to be heard or seen from again. I think that happens quite a bit. So make sure you don't invite satellites to heading. It's okay to have them come to the reception. Yes. By losing it here. Yeah. It's really stop. This is not working as far as like an allergy, you started out strongly, super strong super super strong on the money on. And then it kind of doubts. Yeah. Drifted off. You tried to keep it going. I think you forgot what started on those minisatellites that the bigger satellites spit out in space. Those are the Kwaidan ses, you don't want them there at all. Maybe you do. I don't think I've learned anything from anything. You said haven't no. Sorry. At this point, I'm going to have space analogies, and cut it out jokes the entire time. We're referring to, I guess, list, different strokes for different folks for not going to get very far on this. Why do I have the bad feeling that it's just going to be a Honey invite whoever you want? I got a list of like seven dudes I met down at the biker bar last weekend at the bike to a biker bar. Was there for this today, part go to bed? And yep. Sure. Yeah.

"Hey, this is Brian Dunkel of the unadulterated BS podcast. And it's time to listen to our show. Wait. I can't say that. No. So this is what podcast is this, that I'm doing this ad on the wedding. So you're telling me I can't say. None of that. I can't say any of that on this show. Well. Sorry. Anyway. Listen to the NFL three two Bs podcast on the dark ravine dot com and you can hear exactly what I said. I'm assuming it was all bleeped out, probably. Hello, everybody. That's not how you start. Cream. Cotin and the Hugh Grant stub Q watch your mom elite in your dreams Iraq, our on brew. Golsen two weekends dancing Jammie pants deal. The. Of our listeners. I'm Brian, I am out and getting married. Three hundred eighty one days. Perfect. Steve. Intern. I know it's true. The clouds with you. With you think you're. Perfect for me tonight. We're going to touch on the topic of guess guess lists. This is ready to start striking people down. Tell them that they don't get to come to my wedding. You do except for I don't be rude, but we're going to start taking out like. A donation box pretty soon. Donations are fun before we get really started into guest list. That's what it is guest list. Let's talk about a little bit about this podcast as you said, we're getting married in how many days now, three hundred eighty one so not enough times dwindling quickly. But anyway, this podcast is about us giving. You are lessons learned in a few tips on the various aspects of planning, our wedding, and hopefully, it can be helpful for you and your wedding. Problem. Listened to the fuck. Swarmed by mosquitoes. And as a result, smell was itching furiously very. So yes, lists knows don't invite the mosquito. Yes. Keep them -squitoes far far away. Do invite the bug control specialists. Yes. No to the mosquitos such candles. And I mean the bad way and not good say, not Zeka. All right. Enlighten us a little bit on the guest list supposed to do. And we're like what we're more than a year out still. And I'm thinking about who gets to come. Well, yes, because, well, you have to. Because who gets to calm is going to determine how much food you need much food, UNITA's is going to determine how much you're going to spend on food, so on and so forth. The size of the room already, as well as we talked about location on the most recent addition to the spot guest right on that. Right. Which will? No, you're right. Okay. The other thing is, is that people like to assume that, who you should invite. So you've got. You and your fiancee, wanting to come up with people that you want to have their both of you are going to have people that are close to you that you want invited. Then you have to explain that out even further, and you have your parents on both sides, and in some situations, you may have a split family where there's now suddenly. Four sides set of people, then you have the people who just think that they should be invited. Those are always fun people. So it can get very out of hand very quickly. So I found some articles tips for simplifying in helping you with your guest list. Yes. Invite only people whose names begin with litters eight through the no not quite that way. So. You wanted to come up with the main list or a masterless this master list should include everyone. You think you should invite? Okay. So you're talking about family

This is why you came to the podcast. You don't wanna hear people get buried. You wanna hear a marriage dissolve before. Time. We also have plans interview guests things like deejays cake bakers all these different things until we get up to the point of our actual wedding at which point, we've already decided we're gonna find some time to set aside and do a final podcast after we've actually been married. Yes. If we decided what the entire like, like, how that's gonna work. Nope. Nope. We haven't gotten there we've just we've just decided that there will actually be sometimes that aside at some point, which means weirdly, all of our recording equipment has to go to the wedding with us on this.

Four hundred eight days. How many weeks is that it's going to be there? Well, there's fifty two. Take sixty weeks. So at most sixty sixty one podcast for you to listen to coming up in the future all around our wedding, and hopefully yours. Yep. Sorry. The so the seeds of romance for the people out. There are romances already budding blossoming. There's could just be beginning. Just be happy young couples listening to dismiss on really old. But yeah. Forgetting there. So that's what you have to look forward to for the next sixty weeks. I'm Brian Mel get married. So remember, check us out on the dark Wien dot com. We haven't come up with an ending the show.
