July Mailbag with Jason Moser
"The. Multiple answers I'm out Southwick and I'm joined, is always by broke camp. Personal Finance expert here at the Motley Fool. Hey, BRO, well! Hello Alison. It's the July mailbag where we answer your questions and this month it's with the help of multiple analyst Jason Moser. Should you buy a house now? What is modern portfolio theory and also here Jason's thoughts on a lot of stocks all that and more on this week's episode of Molly fully answers. Jason thanks coming back. you know I mean i. told you you invite me. I'M GONNA. Be here every single time. Thanks for having me back. I mean we appreciate it because we know you're a busy man, and so we do appreciate that you carve out time for us in our little show, don't. Always always make time for those important people in my life rule number one make time for allison and Bro I love. It sounds like a good one to me. Everybody wins. All right well, I guess we should just get into it, so the first question comes from Darren I've subscribed to the full for over a year and I'm really pleased with the service. I would like to know your thoughts about my holdings in Shop Affi- I've bought several times over the last three years, and it's now over thirty five percent of my portfolio and I. Don't know if I should continue holding or trimmed down. What would you advise a good problem to have I was gonna say that exact same thing? That's a good problem have? In a very glad, you have subscribed to our services in your really pleased. That's that's what we aim to to do. We aim to please help you make money and so yeah. This is one of those situations that we will find ourselves in from time to time as investors. A nice problem to have but something you do need to address at some point because it is going to be a little bit different for everybody. In so coming from the perspective of I, also own shop, a Fi stock in it's it's a wonderful investment. It certainly is taking up a bigger. Part of my portfolio a not at thirty five percent where you are. I think for me. It really does boil down to. That sleeping at night test in other words, you need to be able to go to sleep at night without worrying about this kind of stuff, and if you feel like shop, a Fi represents too much. Of your portfolio if you feel like you're overly allocated their, then, you may need to consider pulling it back a little, but now I mean it's. It's I think it's always important. Note you know. It's a big difference between building up a position buying a position to make this size to make this type of allocation in your portfolio. It's another thing entirely to have position grow into beat into becoming that size i. mean that that is that is in a little bit of a different dynamic there, so people all the different ways, some sometimes folks will, they will just sort of looking at it from the house money, concept or you. You just sell enough shares to recoup your initial investment, and then you let the rest of it go. Some people are perfectly fine with thirty five percent. Some people are not. They want a pair back so i. do think you need to kind of figure out what helps you sleep at night I do think that shop by a great business. I think the biggest risk in only shop, if I right now is valuation, just because it's dominating, it's space, but it's not making any money yet, and it's probably going to be a little while until they do so that valuation risk is there, but ultimately yeah I think determine. Where you feel most comfortable with it, and if you feel like you need to put a little bit of that money off the table, and he thirty five percents a lot, certainly very understandable. If they've said something you need to do if you do decide to pair it back a little bit. You've made multiple purchases, so you can identify the shares to sell to manage the tax consequence if this isn't a brokerage account and not an IRA. All right next question comes from Steven. If you are forced into unemployment, you are paying federal income taxes on unemployment payments are not contributing to social security nor to Medicare. How does this affect your future calculation of social security benefits and can one contribute to the social security fund during unemployment to mitigate any adverse effects on benefits, it is a little bit adding insult to injury, but you do owe federal income taxes on your unemployment benefits, and if your state charges has a state income tax, you probably have to pay state tax on that, although there are a handful of states that exempt unemployment benefits, so that's good news. And by the way you, you could have taxes withheld from your unemployment benefits you file. This form called form w four V. if you want, they withhold ten percent, or you can do quarterly estimated payments if you wanNA avoid that big tax bill at the end of the year, but if you're strapped for cash is probably just better to get the money now worried about your taxes later Eh. Stephen notes out. You do not pay payroll taxes. Those are the things that go into social security and Medicare so. So. It could result in a lower social security benefit, however, keep in mind that social security is based on your thirty five highest earning years, so if you enter the workforce at say twenty two and you work until you're mid to late sixties. That's more than forty years where the working so hopefully. If you miss out, if this year is not so good somewhere among those other forty, five or so years, you've had thirty five really good year so that this year won't be that big of a deal. So it probably will be okay. And then to address the last question. Unfortunately, no, you cannot make voluntary contributions to social security. There is at least one academic working paper out there. That suggested that people could buy into social security by like extra credits as opposed to contributing to your 401k, but so far that has not been passed by Congress I had an ex. Question comes from Sam. I heard to stocks discussed on another full podcast. When I read articles about them, it mentions they are thinly traded. I have two questions one I'm sure my position would still be quite small so I think I'd still be able to get in and out, but are there other things I should think about when it's a thinly traded stock and question number two. Is there a certain amount of? Daily volume you like to look for when considering a stock foreign investment. What volume do you want to see to not be? Quote thinly traded stock. Yes very good question in thinly traded stock just refers to the either the amount of shares or the dollar volume of shares that would trade on any given. Market Day and so. The. Thinly traded stock. The the problem is that you may not necessarily able to buy and or sell at the prices. You necessarily think you might be able to in other words when you look at a stock's price and you're looking through the. What what's going on throughout the day on the market, you'll see that did ask spread, which is essentially the bid. Ask spread is it's what someone's willing to pay for the stock versus what someone is asking to be paid for the stock? Because you know you have a buyer and a seller on on in every transaction they're. Normally most cases, these business business bread is very tiny, the couple of pennies maybe for most stocks because they're. They're heavily traded right there. There are plenty of dollar volume. But there are a lot of smaller companies small caps in particular in in you know a micro cap, specifically that don't necessarily meet these kinds of thresholds, and so you definitely have to be aware of that now I'll go back in time just a little bit, too. When we were running the service here at the fool called million dollar portfolios Roman Romani portfolio that we help manage members, and it was never really a problem, but we did have a condition in there. We were always looking for at least ten million dollars in average. Trading volume total daily volume now understand I'm not saying the number of shares saying the amount of money so basically shares times price, but we're always looking for at least ten million dollars. That wasn't set in stone it. It was an idea for us. It wasn't ever really a problem because we had a very diversified portfolio with a number of different types of companies, but when you're looking for smaller companies, you would've just keep that in mind that did ask. Spread is is something that just because it says the stock is twenty dollars. That doesn't necessarily mean you'll pay twenty dollars if there is a a big spread there between the bid, and the ask in so I think whenever you're considering stocks that have any lighter trading volume or thinly traded stock. Just be sure to use limit orders. Limit Orders of let us stipulate the price that you are willing to pay for or that you're willing to. To accept a if you're selling a limit, order is just a really good way to protect yourself from any unwanted surprise thinly traded stocks. You might not always necessarily get them when you want them, so you might have to lead that limited are in there for a little while, but but a limit order is a great way to protect you from any unwanted surprises. Next question comes from Randall. I'm in my late thirties now, but earlier in my life. I was very very bad with my money. Collection Calls Welfare and bankruptcy or not strangers to me. I've been at the bottom then I met the love of my life, and she convinced me to turn things around ten, and a half years later and I have done a complete one eighty, I took control of our finances rebuilt my credit and started investing and listening to all you find folks all. I opened it investing account with the goal of saving and building enough a down payment on a home. I'm happy to say we've now reached that goal. I recently sold at a profit because I didn't want that. Money tied up in the market. If we are close to needing it for a house, but now that we're here, I'm not sure what to do. We currently rent a basement apartment and our neighbors general living situation are less than ideal to put it mildly. So, we're champing at the bit to jump into the housing market that being said the experts have been calling for a drop in the housing market for a while, and that was before the pandemic hit now I'm worried that if we buy right away a year or two or three from now, interest rates will spike, and we could be put in a difficult situation. I live near Toronto. Canada or the housing market is already highly inflated in relation to the rest of the country should I be worried? While Randall first of all congrats on turning your financial life around love hearing success stories like that so good job on that. So I'll start with my standard answer with the rent versus buy decision, and that is just pull up spreadsheet and compare the all in cost of renting, including what you could earn on the money that use for down payment versus the all in cost of buying including the opportunity cost of putting down payment as opposed to having invested as well as insurance and taxes and maintenance, and all that stuff and project, where you might be in five to ten years based on various scenarios on what happens to stocks, if you. Rent an invest the down payment versus what happens to? What you'd look like depending on where home prices go. Generally speaking. If mortgage rates go up, that could way down on real estate prices we did see mortgage rates. Go Up for a bit a few years ago, but the housing market did find, but you could certainly envision a scenario where rates went much much higher, making houses, much less affordable and prices would have to adjust. But I don't expect that to happen anytime soon. I think we're. GonNa have low rates for awhile, but beyond that I don't know I've given up trying to predict where interest rates are going or even paying attention to people who try to predict where interest rates are going, so who knows? That said since you live in Canada. I thought I'd check. In where rates are these days and I and I got a brief reminder that things are actually different in Canada so I did a little bit of research. And then realize I had reach out to someone who knows, I reached out to Canadian Motley fool analysts Jim Gillies, and he had some thoughts so first of all just for you non-canadians out there. It is really different so in America. We get this thirty year mortgage than we have the same payment for thirty years. It's fixed. They don't have that in Canada. What's the most common is a twenty five year? But only the first few years or fixed. And then adjusts so in that context you can understand why Randall is worried about interest rates going up because over the next depending on which alone he gets the most popular is a five year fixed, and then you basically have to go get a new loan probably. So that put that in context, a little more, but also Toronto, really is crazy expensive. Vs from the end of last year that put it as the most overvalued real estate market in the world behind Munich. As Jim pointed out in our call here in the US we had our housing peak in two, thousand, six, two, thousand seven, and then we had what he called a reset, which is basically prices came down significantly candidate and have that slight downturn at home prices, but then they just kept on going up, so it really is different there, so when Jim explain all this to me, the difference in mortgages and the difference in home prices. Frankly he was inclined to say to this guy. You Might WanNa rent for while more and see what happens, but he also had the good advice of okay. What if you buy in prices? Come Down Fifteen percent twenty percent. What if they come down to a point where he upside down? You owe more than the home is worth. Are you okay with that? If. You're okay with that. Maybe it's okay to do that. But it certainly sounds like dicey situation than if someone were telling me like I'm thinking of do this in Dubuque Iowa or something like that. couple of other differences. In case you're curious about Canada in the US. Your mortgage is portable in Canada south. You Buy A. Get the five year mortgage, but then move get to take the mortgage with you for the next house and interest is not tax deductible. US Look at you, Robert, broke? Camp Can Canadian real estate experts there you go. Next! Question comes from Chris. I was on twitter the other day and saw that one of your contributors Brian Feroldi tweeted that he doesn't believe in a long list of technical trading terms and then modern portfolio theory. Can you help me understand what not believing an MP? T with mean this? He believed that diversification doesn't reduce risk. Also every financial adviser I've ever talked to his preached empty, so I would love to hear the counterargument. Jason you're not Brian for all the. Question I am not Brian for all the do get the talk of Brian Pretty good bit though. I I must admit I. Don't know what he said here in regard to modern portfolio theory and all of these technical trading arms. But I think I can take a guess. Generally speaking I agree with them, and I think you could sit there and look up the portfolio theory in you know read about it as much as you want. Just go to google modern portfolio theory, and you can dig right in there, but in a nutshell ultimately, what modern portfolio theory is the intention behind it? It's meant to reduce risk while maximizing returns. It assumes that investors don't like risk. They prefer less risky portfolios to riskier ones in order to achieve a certain level of return so right there. I kind of kind of lost me right there because I don't believe that every ever investors risk averse I think some investors have a very. Healthy, appetite for risk, and frankly I would say I got a pretty high tolerance for risk when it comes to investing, made it just because of what I do for a living but I. You know to me I like having that trade off least unhappy. Happy to take some risks there. If I feel like that upside, it's going to be potentially worth. So with modern portfolio theory, it introduces a lot of fancy math in the form of variances and correlations in order to come up with this. Quantifiable, investing strategy that ultimately helps reduce risk while allowing the investor to achieve. Certain returns in. Maybe it works for some not I'm not dismissing it personally I. Don't use it, I don't personally subscribe to it I. Don't need it. I think honestly for us. In a really believe it's extends to to most people in our full universe is that is individual investors I think a more meaningful way to reduce risk. is to just extend your timeline like invest longer. So like Tom Gardner said a number of years back when we were. Working on Motley, fool one basically take your take the time line that you think you want to own any individual stocks you buy shares of starbucks and I plan on owning it for you know five years. Okay, we'll just double it. Cloning it for ten in all of a sudden right there. You've given yourself more time. Time is one of the big advantages we have is individual investors. Money managers don't have that advantage, Wall Street done generally handed abandoned, either, but if you can be patient and just invest in good businesses. That risk really starts to come down over time. There are plenty of studies out there. That show that risk comes down the longer you hold onto those stocks, which into me, just renders modern portfolio, theory, more or less not useful mean on things, not useful for everybody, but it's not useful for me and based on Chris. Question It sounds like a agree with what Brian was saying there. We think I'll add to. That is I agree that risk is really not that much of a consideration if you are saving for retirement. But once you are in retirement man, and just say like you know what the market's not I'm going to extend my time highs in ten years. Because you need to spend money in that situation, I think diversification is important. It's important to have assets that don't always move the same direction at the same time. For some fools. That's just as simple as keeping any money need the next five years in cash, so you're right out any ups and downs, and that can be fine. But I. do think it makes sense to have. A mix of investment so that right now, technology stocks are doing very well, and we hope that continues to do well, but we remember was that happened in two thousand from two thousand to two, and there were down for quite a while anyone who retired in one, thousand, nine, hundred nine, or so it was very happy to have some small caps value maybe a. A little international, some reits to ride out the storm Yeah I think we talk about that often like recognizing where you are as an investor in life, are you in the grow your wealth stage, or are you in the protector stage, because they are two very different strategies, and we're all hopefully going to be in both of them at one point or another right? I personally and still on the grow your wealth stage I. Think we all probably are, but you will at some point get to where you need to focus on protecting the wealth that you've made so that you can then have that money to spend, and that definitely will dictate your investment strategy things that you're invested in and whatnot. Generally speaking I do like the idea for people who are just risk averse and have this notion that investing is just too risky. I mean the fact of the matter is not investing as far away greater risk like not investing. You will never grow your money if you don't the best, so if if if risk is a problem, I think generally speaking. Along the lines of diversification idea that that bros. talking about him, he just invest in invest in SNP index fund is something that just follows the progress and p. you know you're going to be participating in and if you look at that over the over the stretch of time, their five ten twenty thirty years, I mean that trend does go one way. It, but clearly the older you get, the more you need to start focusing on protecting your wealth, and that will change the way you view things. Right next question comes from Alex from Alexandria if I buy Muny bonds from another state in my IRA. Is it still taxable and Alexander with who we have a bond on and we do have a bunch. I know Alex up super excited about having a bunch on in Alexandria to I can't believe I haven't been there. It's like two miles from my house, but we still haven't been oh i. know because there's a global pandemic going on and we. saw. Alyx if we buy me bonds from another state in my IRA is still taxable. Bro, help him out or her or so Muny Barnes. People Invest Immunity bonds because they're free of federal taxes and in many cases. If you're buying bonds issued by the place you live, they might be free of state and local taxes, so that can be doubly triply tax free. That's why people buy 'em. There are some times, however that if you own immune, abound outside of an IRA. Pay Taxes and this surprises some people. There's something called the minimum tax. If you buy immunity bond at a discount, and then it matures at par. If you buy a distress, Muny bond for like you put an eight thousand dollars, and you sell it later for ten thousand dollars as a capital gain. You'll be taxed on that. So, there are some times when you would pay taxes on media. Now, Alex is asking what if it's an IRA? Do I have to worry about paying tax interest. If it comes from another state and the answer is no, you won't have to worry about that. The only thing I would say is. Generally speaking immune bond already has built in tax advantages, so you wouldn't keep it in an IRA, unless there's the example of the stuff I was saying previously like for. It's one of those exceptions when him UNIBOND would result in taxes than you might WanNa keep it an IRA, but generally speaking. If you're going to buy Muny Bond, keep it out of an IRA. Next question comes from Boone. I just did my first. Roth conversion and looked at that old account for the first time in. There was the expected dividend producing fund I remembered, but there was a stock chesapeake energy that I had completely forgotten about since I purchased the stock in two thousand, six fifteen. It's down way down like eight point five percent off the purchase price. What should I do with it now? It's in a tax deferred accounts so I. Don't think the loss is realized until I. Start to pull money out of the account and that might not. Not Be for fifteen years current value of all my shares will be about one percent of the value of the account after the conversion. Do I sell in the very little value? I had left and depend on E. Trade to keep up with lost for me or should I hold on based on the slim chance. The stock will be worth more in the next ten years. Oil Stocks do act unusually on occasion, only oil stocks. Stock everything else makes that usually. Chesapeake has been really. Interesting Story to follow and frankly. I don't I. Don't know that I would look at it today. As a business that I'd WANNA own so typically if I. You know I think it was yet idea. Didn't sound like a position are actively building united investment didn't work out. I mean that that happens to all of us. We don't get them all right. We have a philosophy here at the full. A lot of do we like to? Water flowers and pull the weeds, and that's just a nice way of saying. Add to our winners in to get rid of losers in. This I think is more than likely slated to continue being a loser I mean. Chesapeake has lost a lot of value. In it does sound like based on when you purchased this, these is absolutely busted I mean. There there are all sorts of reasons to sell one of them is if you thesis busted and the reason why you invest in the company is is no longer the case, and I would he probably is the case with Chesapeake so to me like you know, you could sit there and let it go, but but what's the goal trying to get back to even, or are you trying to get back a couple of bucks for me a lot of times? I'll I'll take a little opportunity here and there to just go ahead and pull those weeds sell it. Be Done with it. In even though it's just unique out a little bit value there, you can still take that money and do something more productive with it. So. Yeah T to me. I can't tell you to buy or sell obviously, but I can certainly understand. Selling in this case, but I you know. As as oil and natural gas energy can can turn around. This is going to be one that has a lot of headwinds in in. You might be waiting a very long time to to get any of this money back. I point out here that I it seems that maybe boone has a slight misunderstanding of how taxes in aries work because he talked about realizing the loss when he takes the money out and trade keeping track of the loss for him, it sounds to me that he thinks that he can write the loss off whence he takes the money out. That may not be the case, but just to be clear. One of the great benefits of an IRA is you don't pay taxes on the gains, interest and dividends from year to year. But. One of the drawbacks is. You can't take a capital loss on that as well so there's really no no way to benefit on your tax return from this loss. Next question comes from Benjamin. You recommend seeing a fee. Only financial adviser for check in every so often I know there is the Garrett planning network and others to help find an advisor. But what questions do you ask? And what answers do you listen for when trying to find one that is worth his or her one hundred fifty to two hundred fifty per hour. So I would say start first with asking yourself some questions. What are you looking for? You could go for the whole launch. Lada where someone is managing your money analyzing retirement plan helping new save and a five twenty nine. Maybe even doing your taxes with some financial planners do help with the state planning, or are you looking for something more targeted? You just want advice about am I saving enough for retirement, or are you close to retirement? You're like I just WanNa make sure that I'm doing right when terms like choosing my Medicare plan and claiming social security at the right time, so first of all just be very clear of what you're looking for. Then if it involves investments in any way, you WanNa, make sure that you find someone who is at least in the general same area philosophically and I say this, because many financial planners are hardcore index. And if you come to them as a motley fool, listener member with a lot of individual stocks. They may say okay. I'll give you some general asset allocation guidance, or they'll say I don't care if you like to pick. Stocks are not my advises, sell the stocks and go to index funds, so you want to make sure that if you're gonNA, ask for any sort of investment. Advice that you wanna find someone who's someone somewhat at least aligned for what you're looking for. Once, you've got that then. Just asked some of the typical stuff. You might expect so credentials certified financial planner. Are they a CPA either their personal financial specialist. How long they've been in the business. There are lots of people who. have not been in the business very long. Even though they're not young people, a lot of people choose financial planning as a second career, which I think is great, but just because someone may be look like they're in their forties or fifties. Sixties doesn't mean they've been in the business that long, and you WANNA. See if they've worked with someone like you right so if you have. Maybe. You have a large amount of wealth large income huge portfolio. You WanNa make sure that they have experienced with dealing with those issues, but on the flip side to if if you have, are you know middle income, decent size portfolio, but nothing too complicated. You don't WanNa. Go to someone who's used to dealing with someone who's wealthier partially because those people charge a lot more. You want to find someone who's kind of a little more lined up with what you're doing. Then make appointments with three folks. All of them will do get do free. Get acquainted means, and you're just looking for someone who you feel comfortable with. Since, you mentioned Garrett Big Fan of the Gary Planning Network and other is is not for the National Association of Personal Financial Advisers. But Garrett on their website has a how to choose an adviser section. Just Google attitude visor Garrett Planet Network has a great chapter from a dummies book that they wrote about how to choose adviser, and they have a good questionnaire that you can print out in US asking lots of good questions of financial planner. It's tough. Choosing a financial planner like my mom just went through that Bro! Is You know and she didn't really have a lot of options in Boise Idaho. Maybe two and one of them, she I never called her back, and never got back her, and the other one was just so busy just so busy, and just she just never. It's it can be rough. Finding a financial planner can be I. Think what we'll see is one of the consequences of this. Of the coronavirus pandemic. Just, like we are all used to working from home, many financial advisors and financial planners an now working from home. So in what they're doing is they're becoming licensed in more states. So, if you are more comfortable, working with someone over zoom remotely I think you don't have to stick with someone in your area. You can go beyond your locations, but you know some people don't feel comfortable that if if they're going to have someone managing their life savings, they want to be able to meet them in person. That's just a personal choice. All right next question comes from twitter. Is that right from sully what I hear? Okay? I just listened to the episode mentioning Your Weakness Two. Shopping carts and Tj, Maxx that me or you Jason. Accused me. Thoughts on the stock. If I had a war on Amazon, basket would be Costco TJ maxx Home Depot tractor supply. What would be your basket against online retail? That's funny. Well okay, listen I wouldn't have basket against online retail, because online retails where it's at. The whole idea. The whole idea behind the basket approaches to find a long term trend that you feel like the world is headed toward and so the war on cash basket, for example that was always one about people using cash war, traffic payments now with that said I get the spirit of the question some going to answer it because I do like some of these ideas. And I I would definitely include Costco in their in Home Depot's well. Home Depot gets a lot of my money. Doesn't, but they have a very loyal fan base of customers that just are happy to renew year in year out. So I love those membership models there, so costco and a Home Depot for sure you know I'm going to give a little shout at my wife Robin I. Know that she would approve of my adding target to the mixer. She hasn't been raving about targets APP and ordering on the APP the able to go to the store. Just pick it up right there I've talked with Ron Gross on more than one occasion about target and how this really has. Become a twenty first century resale right they're doing. They're doing everything online and in physical stores. What they call Alma Channel and then my fourth and I'm GONNA. Take this. You probably aren't expecting this when Alison. I'm GonNa Shock and all you. I'm ready. I'm ready Alta. We're going. Make up my I know my daughter's love. It ugly ugly Mug like this. What do I know about makeup? Tell you what. Get! A House with two daughters and a wife. That's what I know about make. There's a lot of it in an Ulta is a really really good business. They actually have a very nice diversified revenue stream. They've got the salon a`dynamic of the business which encourages people to go there they do have an online business. They have an augmented reality function there at where you can actually like. Try things on makeup to see how it looks. Mary Dillon just a phenomenal other adults of that's my fourth, their Ulta but they I appreciate the spirit of the question I like the idea I'm not saying this is the basket. I'm not tracking this basket in a not a not backing this basket, but in the spirit of the question if I had to develop. A basket, such as this one I think it'd go with those four. Yeah, I mean I guess you just have to think about what retail out there is something that you would still physically go to. Because the actual retail experience is being in the space is the experience and what you're there for? And I know I mean before Corona virus we I would go to target and just just couldn't believe how much money I had spent from walking through a few of the aisles. TJ Max is just a phenomenal business I mean what they've done through the years. Is really capitalized on the nature of the business, the advantage they have in that treasure hunt kind of nature like you go to TJ Max, maybe not necessarily looking for something, and then you end up finding a lot of things, and it can be a little bit lumping at times, but but generally speaking like management's a very good job of running that business, and they know how to exploit the advantage of experience. I think they're online game. Though I think they could probably get something going with online, and they just have not have not yet and so I. Haven't since Corona Virus for example. I haven't spent a single dollar there, but I continue to still shop at. Home Depot I. Think Yeah! We still shopping at home depot because we're doing. You know you gotta buy lumber somewhere. And I know my grandparents out in my my inlaws out in rural Virginia. They love tractor supply store, but that's not. That's not in where we live, but. Still New deck at the house there allison. I mean you, can you see? A big exposed beam behind me and some drywall work that needs to happen. Have lots of drywall work that needs to happen now though. Yeah Anyway get to that. All right next question comes from Matthew. I got married to my amazing wife nine days ago in a small Kobe nineteen wedding in our front yard after we postponed it from its original date in April all. It was definitely different, but still very special. My question is in relation to this wonderful event. My salary has been at a level that has allowed me to fund a roth. Ira I love the optionality of it, but after marrying my bad ass, wife are combined. Salaries are now over the limit that would allow me to fund the Roth. IRA does this affect occur immediately? Do I need to now open up a traditional. IRA and begin funding it or do I have until the end of the year. Matthew wants a Roth Bachelor party one last. Well Matthew I have bad news. When it comes to most things in taxes, your status and your age and things like that depends on where you are on the last day of the year, said if you're married on the last day of the year, you were considered married for the whole year. So that means if you contributed started contributing to a Roth IRA for twenty twenty. You need to call up your brokerage. Firm and re characterize that as a traditional. Now don't have any other traditional IRA, as it's very easy to do the back door, Ross which we've talked about before you can just google it or even when you call the brokerage, just say I want to do the backdoor. Roth and they'll tell you what to do. If, you have other traditional IRA as you can still do. It just becomes more complicated and you'll probably pay more taxes. So you, but you may not be totally out of luck and I should say that's only if you have a traditional IRA doesn't matter if your wife has traditional areas. One exception by the way of of what I just said. In terms of tax status and last day of the year is distributions from retirement accounts before it's age fifty nine and a half, you actually have to be age fifty nine and a half to avoid that ten percent early distribution penalty, unless some of the many exceptions that are out there exist. Right next question comes from Warren Warren Buffett. Maybe I don't know that's why I was thinking. He's asking about coq, so maybe maybe. Once James Opinion on coke. By? Or hold? Wants to now. I'd give buffet night give. Kiesel Warren of the same advice and I would say. For some I'm not buying it. Not Buying it I'm not holding it if I own it. I guess that means sell it. Even Atlanta Georgia person like you i. feel like it's almost sacrilege. I am pretty close to probably not being ever even invited back. But the facts are the facts. Okay, I mean you do have to look at the stock itself has been ain't bad stockton for the last five years. I mean I do understand why when you look at it what they do, I mean they have. Four hundred master brands, and less than fifty percent of them are the big global brands that are actually responsible for almost all of their revenue when I say almost only ninety eight percent, so it's a business. It's very reliant on on. You know a small portfolio of really successful grants. The problem is now. We've always talked about cocoa beans such a great distribution story and that's true. They've got a distribution network. It's just phenomenal, but the problem is now. They're what they're distributing is is being seen as not so good for you in so you're seeing them. Have it into to essentially pivot away from what you know brought them all of the success for all these years. Years in soda and that that's not going to change I. Mean you're always GonNa have people to drink soda? People are not to drinking as much soda going forward in the numbers of just kind of the kind of shown that through that through the quarters in the years of Coca, Cola and Pepsi Pepsi. Has the salty snacks division, which I've always been very. Impressed by I, mean I love a good Cheeto, and so I mean anytime you can throw a bag of those cheetos in my Patriot Amok GonNa, turn it their coq. Interrupting, but I think this is also very important point. You tried the Jalapeno White Cheddar crunchy cheetos. The White Shit or so. I've tried to Jalapeno ones but I've not seen the white Cheddar White Cheddar Jalapeno crunchy cheetos. Don't get the puffy. The poofy ones are not as good, but the crunchy white Cheddar Jalapeno Cheetahs. them by them. They're amazing. I have to back. Pain you. I'll get those next time. I promise I, mean Eh. One. crunchy wants the puffy ones, so that people won't you're not? You're not seeing poopie. Who using poofy Joe Copy? We'll be Coca doesn't have that dynamic of their business. They don't have that dynamic to their business, and they've suffered from that Pepsi's Pepsi's outperform coca-cola over the last several years. It's not safe. Pepsi or coke get it back. I'm sure they probably can. But what I am saying is I think there are a lot of better ideas out there, and so I wouldn't be putting new money into Coca Cola and frankly if I did own it. I probably would look at selling it and you know if you've got a beverage company, maybe own starbucks. It seems like the science coming out in support of coffee, right? It's coming and telling you that these sodas. They're gonNA. Make you fat. Coffee, it could extend your life. It could help you live longer. SMART Mexican looking this a starbucks as well is. That sounds like study from the copy roasters of America. Do! Something that Chris Hill sent me the other day. that. We sleep at night. I'm glad I've been drinking coffee as long as I have God knows what I would look like otherwise. You're a good looking man. Rick. good-looking next question comes from. A. I'm trying to save money for my kid's College. Fund while the five nine is a great option. I'm limited to investing in mutual funds, which means at best I'm going to get what the market gets assuming I do some sort of low cost index fund and I be a capital F. Fool investor have been doing much better than the market in the last three years of being a member of. Of Stock Advisor Enroll breakers, even during this pandemic mess by listening to every full podcast and following David and Tom's and yours and every one else's in the full universe. My portfolio of about one hundred stocks is up here today. Thirty percent to the market's down five percent as of day as of today weighed down by three sluggish five to nine plants that are also down five percent each. I feel like throwing away money by using the five to nine, and not being allowed to select my own great companies in which to invest. What's more, my understanding is that the five to nine does not count as an asset for the kid when applying for student aid, but the coverdale does. So I come to you with a simple question. Can I have my cake and eat it, too? What if I wanted to use the coverdell to buy individual stocks? Until the child is nearing college? At which point I then converted to a five to nine. This allows me to get better returns and avoid it being an asset for financial aid and get the favorable tax benefit. So, chose this question, because first of all Dune does a good job explaining the benefits of the coverdell over the five twenty nine, you can buy individual stocks. You can buy and sell them all day long. We recommend that, but you can. Whereas with the five twenty nine, you can only make two changes to the investments a year, and it's all mutual funds. So. That's you did a good job of explaining that. I will point out with the coverdell. It's gotta low contribution limit of only two thousand dollars a year, so for some people save more for college, but they can max out to cover it out, but then put the rest in a five twenty nine. One thing that doomed does not have quite right. Is The financial aid treatment the financial aid treatment? Coverdale's and five twenty nine is identical. They're treated as assets of the parent, not the kid that is favourable from a financial aid perspective. It's not negligible doesn't mean it doesn't have any effect on financial aid, but it's better than an asset that is owned. By the kid. He can. Transfer money from the Coverdell to the five twenty nine. If for some reason, he decides to do that, but you can't transfer it. The other way around so were convinced to try out the covered. You have money in a five twenty nine. You can't move it from the five twenty nine. To the coverdale. What other interesting thing that he pointed out is that he is doing very well with his investments, and he owns about one hundred stocks. We get this question a lot. Either on the show, or on the full live that we run every day for members of full services, and that is how many stocks should I own, and if I owned too many are not just owning index fund watering down my returns, but here's an example if someone owns a one hundred stocks is still crushing the market. Idol last question comes from Cameron thoughts on the valuation of Stone Co in light of the corona virus for a fragile country like Brazil. This could be the tipping point after so many other headwinds. But how does that affect stone? coz Business Jason I. Don't even know what Stone Co is. What is still business? Yes, don't Coz a payments company that's focused on Latin American markets in Brazil and particular in so I guess it could be. Draw you can draw a parallel to to a with square through pay pal at, but generally speaking I mean it's payments. Company focused on Latin America. Primarily Brazil. Is the big money making market kind of like Marco Libra, they're. In I, I, it's a it's. A NEAT opportunity, gained a lot of headline recently, when and it was, it was seen that Berkshire hathaway. Warren Buffett's company Berkshire hathaway taken a five percent position in the company, which is pretty considerable i. Think in the near term. You have to acknowledge the fact that. They're gonNA, be some real headwinds in in Brazil particularly because of the pandemic I mean. The flip side of that is role in same boat kind of in that regard. The entire world is dealing with it, so it's not specifically you know it's. It's not particular to one economy or one country some. To get hit harder than others I, do feel like Brazil. Be at a place where they can recover from this given You know some of the other businesses in the area. I mean that that that I think is. Who knows ultimately how? That's GONNA shake, but generally speaking. I think the move away from cash towards cashless. Transactions in and financial software that's not stopping if anything, this hastens that which which is what I think, Cameron's talking about there and for a company like stone. Co, neither are other companies in the space pags bureau in roquetas libra to but you know moving money around is a big big market opportunity, and there's nothing that says they won't be able to expand well beyond the Latin American markets, too, so I I'd say cautiously optimistic I mean I

Is It Rolling, Bob? Talking Dylan: James Shapiro
"And so going back to think twice you were talking about about more about the writing. Yeah and it's something that I didn't know enough about until I was invited onto your program. But what are the things that interest me about? Shakespeare is the fact that you know. He wrote thirty six so plays that we know of and almost none of them may be. The tempest may be midsummer. Night's dream are his original story but for the most part Shakespeare was not interested in creating a new story. He looked around at the stories others had told whether they were Italian. Novellas or English plays or history's any thought I understand what's slightly off for not really fulfilled in this version older version and he did what architects call a gut renovation. He kept the frame and he just cleared out the inside and made it is. Oh so when Dylan writes. Don't think twice. He knows Paul Clayton Song. Who's going to buy you ribbons? When I'm gone? He worked with Klay knew who sadly killed himself in in one thousand nine hundred sixty seven. Eight toward together collaborated a little bit and I'm sure that there is kind of cross pollination if you will between Clayton Song. And and don't think twice and dillon with a little techy from what. I've learned about that you know he said I steal the word a or the word so whether we're done you know Ed is a good question. Although he was a little defensive even steal those words but he is reaching into a tradition a tradition that goes further back than Clayton to. What I learned was an African American Song that circulated in Virginia. Who's GonNa Bring you chickens? So what we're talking about. Our traditions and Shakespeare comes out of traditions. Really in very similar ways. To how Dylan does and plagiarism is. A useless category the only useful category. Can you take something old and make it speak to the moment? In a way that makes people feel connected to that song ways. Nobody has ever felt connected to it in dealing did that for me. I think I'm right in saying and correct me. If I'm not the Sean Wilentz I think wrote a book called Bob Dylan and America. And he I believe explored this notion and said you know what it's Alchemy. What he's doing is he's taking base matters and is creating something new out of it that shines and I thought that was really damage. It is in trouble. Lens is A friend and a very smart guy and I think he wrote brilliantly about about Dylan. Christopher ricks did as well They're just a people recognize. That is work rises to the level of seriousness. And it is how chemical it is a transformation but for me. It's really the lack of thoughtfulness beyond the magic of the transformation and the thoughtfulness I suppose has to do with. I see what's not there. That's a hard thing to to grasp and Shakespeare was really good at it. Didn't create the story of Hamlet. He didn't create the story King. Lear those were all plays bouncing around in the stage. You probably acted in a spear holder when he was young. He's onstage they could. God I can write this great Soliloquy at this point or I could tweak it in this way. And maybe it's not occurring Bob Dylan in a cerebral way. But it's occurring to him in a way that lets them know. Yeah I. I know the folk he sang exists but that song is dead on arrival. Something has to be done to reanimated and I suppose it's as much Raising the data's alchemy. And where do you think Dylan? Shakespeare intersect particularly? I think oddly even though four hundred years or so separates their birth. They both products of a similar education system. You know it's it's remarkable if you listened to to Dylan's account of education in his Nobel lecture in two thousand Seventeen. He talks a lot of doubt grammar. School you know. He learned things in Grammar School. The devices techniques secret mysteries whatever. He's talking about. He talks about gullivers travel. Dickins Don Quixote all these stories and of course we know he had a great teacher in school. Who taught him the poetry John Donovan? The poetry plays of Shakespeare so shakespeare learn what he learned in Grammar School. I mean this is a Western tradition that span than in now and both of them sat there probably frustrated probably demise racing as they were exposed to this stuff and taking it all in and a decade later or or ten years later figuring out how to turn this into into gold if you will and I mean that both literally and figuratively because you have to make money as an artist or like pulled claim you can end up desperate and suicidal and both of them figured out how to do that. And if you think you know as a thought experiment Dylan or Shakespeare Been Born twenty years earlier or twenty years later whatever genius they had could not have been fully rely so yes. They were both remarkable artists but they had great luck in being born at what they recognize. Both of them were pivotal moments in in their culture in the arts in the possibilities that were now available to young

"So that's why you get these squares like why do you think you get Amy Klobuchar people? All these people are like. Hey it's like you're these people have never done a line of cocaine and just like they're fucking losers and that's why you get all these squares because there's nothing to dig up now that authenticity is the most important thing people go. Yup I used to do fucking blow rapper. Here's the thing it was with. Trump trump is such unique case. He's an amazing communicator. Transfixed he speaks is almost hypnotic. He was well known to us. He was known to us for years and years later. Yeah as a successful person. Yeah we can not forget. He had the highest ratings of anyone in television. Yeah everybody loved him and he was known as a celebrity so he gets a kind of a pass are strangers without that track record that we know good point going to be able to utilize that same type of thing. I don't know remains to be seen interesting. Like if you're running because you've got to remember. Most people go through the system that catches run for president. Trump's existed without Arnold Schwarzenegger. Yes but he couldn't have existed without reality. Tv and social media which are the two biggest cultural landscape shifts. That I've seen in my life. Meaning that reality TV made certain things okay. You know it's fake and manipulated but you still enjoy it still enjoying something. He knows. Fake scripted manipulated. There's a there's something very interesting about that. Something very strange knowing that these housewives they're all got drunk and apply them with alcohol and they them into table and they feed them all this stuff. You know that it's very manufacturer but you still enjoy it and also. The News has started to echo popular shows so news on CNN. Oh It's Michael Bay movie or percents same way that trump's Prentice used to build tension with these. Yes the news now does that. So it's what Infotainment entertainment I mean. There was a book that Neil Postman years ago called amusing ourselves to death. Forget somebody told me about it recently like it really does Kinda you start to look where to trump. Come from me like he came from a world where you know you know and then you look at like a lot of these reality shows like survivor where it's like. Let's put people on an island and see if they survive barbaric. You know. I mean you know what they do on Bravo and a lot of these shows like get a bunch of rich people together and they're like someone will go bankrupt. Somebody's hospital hanging himself and let's put the cameras. There's also happens after as well so not only. Is it chicken and egg the kind of person who signs up speak humiliated on? You already have a wonky sample then being on camera that does to you because it was a coarsening of the culture through reality. Tv started really with the OJ. Simpson trial that then became part of reality. Tv ECORSE near the culture. A hardening of it empathy started to drain. People didn't care anymore. As long as it was fun and interesting and entertaining they'd watch and then I think and this is show that I loved and was hosted by what are very good friends. Joe Rogan. Yeah I think also watching fear factor where people were like. Oh I'll just yeah I'll drink some blood later. That's when we saw how far people were willing to go and social media. What's amazing about social media? Is THAT PEOPLE. And especially twitter people of the Dunk. People love somebody getting the better somebody else you know. People wrecking somebody. That's wrecked capulets. And that's what wins a twitter argument. That's right that's right not the facts. That's right so then trump the clapback so trump. Harnessing that was kind of amazing. Where he's like. I don't have to be right. I don't have facts. I can just shut it down by saying you're a nasty woman or any. Brian did it brilliantly. Yeah and anything. This is something that comes from the roast anything that it is impossible to refute or song. You're a nasty woman. No I'm not like it's it's the kind of thing where when I used to do. Comedy about gender wants someone calls you crazy the arguments over because anything you say after that is going to sound crazy correct is they've just framed it and the more fat you've saying. I'm not crazy last but I I wonder if after going through this people are going to be like. We don't need to be entertained. Every moment of the day or our brains are wired addicts. You know our brain is wired for dopamine dopamine. Our adrenals are probably just get fucking shot. And we're going to go but it's like if this does collapse a healthcare system or near collapse it in this is very tough and very traumatic. I think people are going to start saying we don't want a fun president anymore. Yeah I want to. I Want Obama. We WanNA cerebral hail yeah Scurvy ASS not to say nothing of their political opinions. Just there the aesthetic like I want somebody who treats this professionally enacts professionally. I want a guy who when they get the pandemic. Yeah it's not fun and Games. Yeah because nobody anticipates a DEMOC- but people do we don't depend DEMOC team and it's called that as called it for four years but it's like trump's like what's the rally or people cheering his name. He's like what's the fun in that. Yeah and it was fun and silently preparing for passage. You know funny I WanNa have fun. You can't germs. You can't see them what we do in. I want people chanting my name. I want to say we're GONNA put Hillary in jail on your podcast. You mentioned that I get all my news from your podcast. Yeah Rachel Maddow very very smart and about Bill Gates. There was a ted talk. That is very bone chilling. Yeah Four years ago. He said we need to stop worrying about war. A PHYSICAL WAR. Yes bioterrorism DEMOC. Typically people started accusing him of being like a orchestrating. Which is now if you're a smart guy who tries to help you you 'cause well suspiciously our way that we all have to start realizing and this is uncomfortable. Large percentages of the American public or schizophrenic. I mean this is John Genuinely true. I mean they're they're no longer able to be treated like rational beings because they're not as what it is they're sick so we're all in fighter flight mode. I went to the grocery store first of all I would do the grocery store yesterday. People weren't even using carts they with their bare hands holding loaves of bread toilet paper. I'm like you're not GONNA GET GERMS. You'RE GONNA have to put it on the air belts like my mother's a schizophrenic. She's in a mental institution. I know all about mental illness. And it's like what America's like now's like if I went to her mental institution. I'm like what do you guys think about free? Trade? How do we feel about it? It's like no there so there's a lot of people that are done and it's it's been a thirty forty year died of bad food and booze and pills in pickled ourselves on and also. The water was about so many things that there are genuine conspiracies. There are genuine. Our media is just trying to get us to click on thing so at this point. You can't even you feel bad for them. You're just like they've been bit. They're feral that's why I say like. Oh they're feral bit. They've been bid. It's not bad at this. Not even their fault. It's their the walking dead and just sitting at home trying to eating sugar cereal. I'm just trying to figure out who did it. Did Gates do it student loans? They'll get ya. I mean they really sneak up on you. They really do refinancing them with Ernest. Could Save you money or lower your monthly payment and it only takes two minutes which I think we all have that kind of time right now all of a sudden I've got two minutes lying around If you're paying the same rate you were when you graduated..
"dillon" Discussed on Good For You
"Yeah so those we will not be So you have kind of the perfect storm of like the economy's in the toilet and now also we've told people that you can also be a criminal like like there's people in Philly right now that are like should I be a criminal. Think they're out of it but they got fired from Gold's gym or whatever laid off and they're like should I just start moving. Wait on the street like show. Maybe I'll steal a car literally. There's people philly gone. Maybe I'll steal a car and the only hope you have against burglarized. Is You hope. The potential burglar is a Germaphobe. WanNa get close. Yes take your wallet. That's all you have so it's GonNa cat. Probably the only reason. I think they're doing this. I am this is obviously based on nothing but my I'm making an inference here. I think the states won't help from the federal government. Yes I think they want. Maybe martial law. I think they want the military. I think they don't think they can do it estates so I think the way to do that are ministration has left this two states correct so do think we should remind people just real quick that is why it took comedian so long to officially canceled their dates is because unless it's a state of emergency we theoretically are not allowed to cancel. We've signed something. It says that if it's not a state of emergency or an act of God you don't get your money back correct so when the administration didn't say it was like this is fine. This is so bad. We're going to get over it last week. That's why we couldn't cancel our date so I think they wanNA federal response and I think that the way to do that is to either make things worse or give things that they're gonNA get. Yes yes yes. Ya 'cause there's no reason let's say Philly was doing that. So they want anarchists that in well. Why the hell would they announce yet that they're doing it? Yep even if you were going to do that just tell cops you don't tell everyone impacted odds name. Would you put that out into the media? It might be the only way to get people to stay in their homes. It might be. I think that's part of it but I also think part of it is like whether they want to set an actual anarchy or they want the perception that it's coming. Yeah they want people to be okay with greater interventions and greater like. They want people to be like okay. Listen if you're going to let criminals run around fuck it. I'm GONNA bring the tanks in Yup bring everybody in so you've got boots on the ground in New York which was quarantine. I know corner after us. It just officially got it today. It was an hour ago so the shelter in place order came down about an hour ago in New York City. You know you know a real quick back story of how I got back to. La We were talking. It was clear that I was GONNA cancel the show in Detroit or whatever I get in the bathroom like you know what I'm GonNa just get on my flight tomorrow. I was in New York. I was at a a lovely hotel and I was like. Let me just stay here and not panic and be driven by fear? I'll just fly out tomorrow. I got a text from you going. New York's going to go under quarantine sometimes heard I was in the IT. Did really you know it was shutting down? We're GONNA start. Yeah I out of the put my clothes on BUCK ASS. Wet Dry my body Got into the car Went to the airport without a ticket right. I showed them to the ticket counter. And said I would like a ticket please like an orphan in the fucking twenty raise like may I with the little stick in a ticket guitar case of your clubs. I go to the airport. I was so afraid and the flight. Once aeroplane wow coming back from Vancouver before this happened. I mean when was that it was like maybe a month ago so coming back from New York. This been a week ago. Yeah it was so weird First of all no one was talking to each other. There's no like hey business or pleasure. No one would speak to each other. People have scarves people. Everyone unanimously was wiping down there seat like Jersey Bros. Look you'll home. And you need Clark's Wipe. It was like wow everyone. The flight attendants didn't even speak to us. You know how the normally like micromanaging. You gotTA show that you can't have that in front of you. People were lean back. They wouldn't even talk to us. It was so eerie. And just a captain didn't speak at all really in speaking of wow. It was surreal. It was quiet. It was uncomfortable. There was no excuse me. Pardon me like everyone was just avoiding each other elbow going on a cruise next week and I'm wondering wondering how that's going to be because I do. I don't WanNa change my life. You know what I mean I really WanNa just. I'm going to cause him out and I'm very excited. I've saved red. Yeah it's just a fun time to kind of be alone with myself and I hate. I stole a bunch of Masks from cedars-sinai. I'm selling them on the street by the way. God bless America. People are stealing masks from the hospital selling them in that good. It's called capitalism. Yeah God bless this administration for antagonizing China. The place that makes that makes all the medical supplies. I'm on my friends who are comedians. I gotTa tell them I gotta be like you know. You're the guy that's tells the masks. I don't WanNa tell but I'm like you're the guy after nine eleven that shows up and has a family fund that you take your the guy that was pulling gold teeth out of the nine eleven just embrace it kidding knew it and yet but it's it's I've not been on a plane. It's terrifying on the way to New York. There were thirty people on my jet on the way back on the way back it was full and no one was speaking to each other service any water. No nothing they didn't even look the. I couldn't even get a flight attendant. Look at me. I had my bag at my feet so they don't even put up hard. They didn't tell me to put my seat up at the end. I was lying down till we landed. No-one Kinda cool. You experienced that like I almost want. I want to experience it anarchy. Yeah I feel like left out. I mean I felt sorry for the flight attendants I was just like. Oh you guys have it. I feel very bad for them. You know I have people that I know that. Our nurses doctors first responders New York. And they're all telling me the situation is worsening by the hour. They're running out of supplies. Some of them are contracting this Some of them are noticing. There's call outs people not showing up to work. Because they don't want to get it that I mean I mean we've talked about but now doctors can cross borders. Yes so doctors. At places that doesn't Duh Duh Duh Duh Duh did it did. It doesn't have a lot of cases can go to place can combine which allows unprecedented. That's amazing and you have friends that are in New York. I have friends that are new. I mean I grew up in New York whole life up island. I lived in New York City for just under a decade uh-huh so I you know my whole life. My world is in New York in terms of like now. It's an la friends and stuff but like family friends all in New York City. You Know I. I think it came from fashion week. That a bunch of people in Milan fashion week got it in Italy and brought it to New York and the way to La. Is this. Dr Calabasas wrote because administration's not putting information out so doctors writing facebook posts saying? Here's what we're seeing you know. I don't really have time go on. Cnn and explained this job. Because I'm busy. Sort of playing whack a mole with Roman lives and this guy in Calabasas Said that the doctor said that it came from a family that went to on vacation in Italy and they want an Italian ski trip. So it's like rich people bringing it back and killing poor. Yeah Wow. Isn't that great? I heard that it's possible. It's been circulating for months here and that people are actually. It's being you know people getting sick getting over it. People building in a potentially some level of immunity to it You know you know who knows. A lot of people are saying. I was sick three weeks ago when I asked I but I never. Here's the thing like I diagnosed with strap. I remember that. So they were like they were like you did the tests. I did the test strap but then I'm also reading that like some of the players of Utah. Jazz got diagnosed with stress right and they had a co-infection with this. I'm like maybe I had that I don't know cert- but then some of the symptoms were people like I couldn't walk. I'm like well. I didn't have that people dizzy and I couldn't walk. I'm like yeah like I was so weak. I'm like I felt like shit so you don't know but but you can get a test eventually down the road at see if you ever had it because if you had it your body antibodies and then what might be working taking those antibodies and putting right now is not the time to show up to see their signing. It'd be like bodies. Do I like having my antibody test my blood? I think I've already beaten this. I think I've already beaten. I think thank you so cycle for helping me. Yeah I so. I'm going to just not do that. And wait and but eventually when things calmed down. I might go back in. Be like just out of curiosity was I have this. Yeah I'm really I'm trying to stay in a lot of this is. This is a lot of your territory. Doesn't a lot of this comes from the mistreatment and abuse of animals hundred percent in these kids? That's exactly where people always think. I'm betcha crazy and I always say like abusing animals is bad for humans is about brains. It's bad for our analogy. It's bad for children's development when riot zoos and they see animals being abused and confined. That is how children learn. Turn aligns exactly to treat those that are voiceless and less powerful than them. So yeah it fucks up our kids. And then we get sociopaths. Running the world but also exotic animal trafficking is huge huge and most people that do it also traffic human beings. There's no one just trafficking jaguars it's also guns. And there's nobody. Who's like we're stopping Pangolin ended? They'll do the hall. Those teachers are in the same. They run the short fucking pangolins Razi. So these wet markets that are horrific. There was a great. It was the sixty minutes piece sixty minutes at a good one on it. And they're still fifty of them. In New York there's area near copy slows down. They were cool like I. There were cool in the sense. You could walk by you. See like live octopus and stuff down in Chinatown now. I think that's over. I actually think Chinatown in New York. City is going to you know. Sadly it's they're gonNA have their. They are going to have a long hard road back out because not only those markets probably..

She lives in Minnesota with her daughters and is the owner of the small independent bookstore. Birchbark books my pleasure to have her here. Louise Welcome thank you so much. It's my pleasure. Tehran I'm delighted to be here into Louise. I really appreciate when our authors teach us about our own history and sometimes that history includes troubling times until this book takes us right to the heart of what termination the threat of termination losing the ability to say that we are a sovereign nation. Your characters take us to this moment in so I'm set the scene for us a little on just how much it's impacted not only the characters in the book but of course your own tribal nation. What would you like to say about termination? Well first of all I. I BELIEVE. Termination was a long time in preparation. You know when you look back through the history of what was happening just before you see that there was a big housing Bob. Postwar housing boom so termination came out of The the narrative of dispossession The government really wanted some very large stands of timber and those were on the cliff and the menominee reservations and they were among the first terminated. So there was five that were on the first light and turn on the Turtle Mountain Chippewa Band of Chippewa was one of them. So it didn't come out of nowhere. There had been some plans in the making and they got the perfect interface with two houses of Congress under Republican control and also the President Eisenhower Republicans so they had a sort of a clear shot termination at that point and the person who is the commissioner of Indian affairs at the time was a guy named Dillon s Myer and he had presided over the incarceration of Japanese American people. Right right during the war. So we have this Guy Dylan Myers. Who's all set up knowing exactly how to he? He was going to relocate everybody right that was the plan. That's that went hand in hand with relocation and then there's Arthur v Watkins who who was Passionately for termination. He had grown up on Allotment land that went into tax forfeiture and his family. Got It so he. He's the other person the main person and then Then there's the people who suddenly got this notice that your tribe is going to be terminated or emancipated. The word was you. Get your freedom. That's how it was couched. Those are the phrases. Did that make you feel it? Being compared to this that you are now mandated. You no longer have to be a native. It's it's so it's so it's so of all of our times I mean this is the language that is used when Dispossession is the real motive. flowed out some high-sounding kyw principled words and let people think I mean. They thought they were going to pull this over a native people right and not. My grandfather had an eighth grade government boarding school education but he got it immediately and he and I think most people did but the the the kind of shock is that this kind of rhetoric would come out with the expectation that native people would not even understand that there was nothing to emancipate that freedom meant freedom to lose all of their their land and their their treaty guaranteed privileges as long as the grass grows and the river. Shell slow you know that those words would be would be meaningless because Both houses of Congress had voted to abrogate treaties that have been established since the very beginning of this country
Talking Liberty With President & CEO Greg Maffei
"Greg thank you for being here today and I've been wanted us for a long time. So thank you for being on kindred cast and you seem like you were getting a little bit tired and exhausted just hearing all these titles and responsibilities but imbedded within all of us is superior shareholder returns along the way across the portfolio definitely. You're proud of I think. That's why stills getting to sit in the chair by reference that we met during your three sixty networks days a long time ago when I used to cover the bonds and ran that company which was in fiber company generally speaking like the old days but even with Microsoft. I remember when you made the investment in comcast in one thousand nine hundred seven which was a billion dollar investment in the cable business. You were sort of the first to bring the technology industry together with the media industry and the cable industry in that respect a very long time ago. When I was at Microsoft we were very interested. In what the cable industry was doing to build out high speed data build out the high speed Internet Bill Gates and I spent a bunch of time with a lot of people in the cable. Business including Brian Roberts comcast including John Malone thrilling. When I first met him back in ninety three we tried to sell them set top boxes. We tried to drive a lot of things. We were very instant what they were doing with at home. Which was the primary vehicle. Another one road runner which are the primary consortium vehicles to build up that high speed data and eventually Ryan Roberts is the one I said. Look if you want to help us. You should put money and all the cable companies but the only one who really stepped up and wanted our money. Initially we did a bunch more Brian. So then we ended up buying seven percent of comcast and I was on observer on the board so that was my first exposure to cable. Yeah it was a real catalyst. I remember for evaluation starting to rise again people's concerns being alleviated about what the future of cable could be seen as perpetual petrol theme right when you have these traditional media businesses that are always count out in the age of Technology and innovation disruption. And all of a sudden you have real endorsement and it sustains itself and brought Bannon's everything else obviously there are examples that went the other way like newspapers and other things you know. We were lucky twice or I've been lucky twice to catch the right cycle. We did very well in that comcast investment road at up on the growth of high speed data. And then really again when we did charter in two thousand thirteen sort of caught if not a bottom of near bottom on the industry's accelerated since yeah. Is that the way that you think about? Investing and think about buying companies is that you're somewhat countercyclical because obviously given your perch and your history in the industry you could have expertise in any number of areas. So how do you prioritize it? What do you think about? What drives your successes your approach? I wish we were that systematic or organized. Yeah you definitely have to have a thesis and oftentimes. It's gotTa be tacking against conventional wisdom because conventional wisdom gets valued to the Max. And if you're following along that's a really hard place to be. It may work for a while and it kind of momentum play but it's hard to sustain so finding things are out of favor is certainly a good place to start and doesn't mean it'll nestle get back into favor but it's a good place to look. I can also speak to. The other side doesn't matter how clever you were in emerging telecom in the early two thousands when I was running sixty when the capital goes away and when the trend blows up on you you're GONNA have a lot of problems all the emerging telecom companies. But when you think about the career and it is a unique path right. And obviously we'll get to the liberty part of your career now but when you think back at your evolution as an executive and as an investor what do you point to to be sort of like those key moments where you've got to be really good at your craft and obviously it's a humbling experience every single day. But how do you think back at your path and wise unique and differentiated versus others again? I'm not sure there's a systematic thing. I've tried to keep my doors open but I know I've also gone just incredibly lucky to be at Microsoft of the right time and place to move. When I was really from Dillon Reed over to CITICORP venture capital eventually get out to Seattle to get an John Malone and for him decide. I was the right person to come here where there was a lot of things that were available to fix. Initially we got some early wins and to have the perch so Microsoft needed my skill set at the time. They really didn't have it. Liberty could use my skill set but I could have end up someplace where a lot of smart people could have filled that role or I could have been someplace where your skill set wasn't necessarily so highly valued so there's a lot of selling yourself short by saying it's all lack. I look back at my business school class. A lot of smart men and women smarter than I am or accomplished who didn't necessarily ended up. Lisa metrics having same mobile success some degree. That's the luck of. Where do they end up? Where did I end up? What was needed at the time when we ended up at that spot right? Well let's talk about how you got the liberty then so Dr John Malone needed a CEO of liberty media. How did that come about? And what came to be where it was attractive to you? I'd known John. Since ninety three and he actually been on the board of three sixty networks investor and three six networks. I've lost all his money there. But he's still talk to me. He said I was good at generating tax losses in early two thousand five or mid two thousand five. I got a call from mutual friend of ours. Who said John Malone wants you to come liberty? Do you want to talk to and you. At Oracle the time Oracle. I only been three. I said sure like to talk to John. I mean I'd known him for twelve years. That Point Pete served on a board company Iran so I knew reasonably well. We'd actually talked about various ways we might work together so John Calls Me and says who could run liberty and I thought he was going to call about me. I said nothing comes right to mind. I think about some names so I called the mutual friend back and said well. He got me but he didn't want my name. He was asking for other names so and the friend said he wants to. He wants. He's just playing with you. Then he called back and said you know maybe you'll be the guy that's pretty funny. Well played so will happen so I joined in November of two thousand five as I there was. I think a bunch of relatively low hanging fruit of things to fix clean up and you know in any job. It's always get some early wins because it gives you credibility to make bigger bets. Yeah did you have a an understanding with John when he became? Ceo of how you both would divide the responsibilities already just all in it together. You were giving us a lot more credit than I think. The only thing I remember John Offer. Let me send something like the future is what you make it or something like that. It was a pretty open canvas and if you look nobody would have predicted enormous change when I joined in five today. What liberty looks like and nobody would predicted where we would go right now in the John. Ri- nobody but was there a mandate was there a vision or an objective or again with more of a two smart people getting together and try and make the right investments. Look I think John Appreciate? I'd come out of the technology side and had some familiarity with that in. Oh five if you WANNA look like a relatively. Technically strong person. Coming out of Microsoft helped compared to being traditional media players. I certainly wouldn't put myself up as a technology expert on a relative basis. That was helped. Yeah we'll plus you understood. I feel like capital structure and CFO like dynamics which would help with tax and shareholder value. And not just strategic deal making. When I was at Microsoft we did all these Put ones we were buying our stock back and we were selling against it and it was sort of a we knew we had big tailwind that we made up a bunch of money on this porn. And it's because it's in your own stock it's tax free. John loved that it was fascinated with that so Chinese doughy say the put warrant guy or something like that he was always happy because that's John Malone kind of play. Yeah well how do we think about liberty media because from the outside looking in just taking a eagle in the sky perspective for a second is unclear whether liberty media is a public private equity firm? That just happens to invest in media assets or Obscene Media Operating Company or to leveraged bet on the industry what is Liberty Media and hatchery benchmark or is it just a unique animal altogether book. I think you could say it's all three of those things in various times. It's malted when I first got here. We really owned very few assets in total on. Qvc was the only one we have any scale. We had a bunch of minority positions. And we've actually swapped for control or more influential positions. Barwane more positions over time. We'd like to think we try to do it. In this parts of the industry with our history as a company with John's vision John's expertise and contacts. We've had some insights into perhaps where we thought things would do. Better and where we thought we'd get worse and been able to trade our way out of those hopefully not inefficient or trade. Are we in to the good ones? And so that's been somewhat of a bet on the best parts of media. We'd like to think from where we could actually make progress. You'd love to be some of these places but you can't get in any smart way so it's not like it's an obvious bad to buy the stock but we've tried to promote the thing to a more operating assets being happy also being places where we have a influential position but on the right side of where the trends are

Who Joey Dee as today I could if I take WANNA WANNA mercy's candies at night if I walked by and take two over star bus I got on the scale the next day? I've gained the out right but I eat a steak and Lucifer compound right. So these are the things you learn by weighing yourself every day and you know just last week I was talking to somebody about sleep important couple years ago. I loved Joe Rogan. podcast you had on Steven Tyler made me realize how lazy were Ryan Towels. Seventy-three fucking doing and things that they were killing it. Yeah but he had a guy on that about sleep guy. Watch that sleep. I'll watch that. And that's part of our problem is when we get back at one that bullshitting days Tuesday through Sunday. You have five days radio. You're going to bed three. You get up at six or radio right that destroy. Yeah all many so many aspects. I saw this this thing. With Mick Jagger on networks L. A. L. La. I Love Your Stone Fan and the guy asked him do you. You upset that people mob you and come up to you and ask you for pictures. And he goes the top part right. Being a better friend to us is also partly out. I didn't know if I wanted to. Rogan one discipline call music. I'm the first time he calming GonNa go to the gym. Or what are you talking. We're on the road. Yeah Jan outlaws. Yeah we go we you WANNA roll to do drugs to get STD right and to fucking fuck people on the wrote to be healthy right. But he's amazing healthy and after a while I watched them I would avoid them started avoiding them for breakfast right because he would make we go to the gym and then go to eat. Let's let's go eat. Yeah I know what let's go to the jumper. He's he's eating eggs and I'd be on the Front Treadmill Ryan. He's he's walking around. Yeah like four times. I'm like I'm not doing this. He said to me he goes. He goes just cut out. CARBS and sugar go. Oh but he's right. Here's the thing he's always right. It's just to say to me cut out carbs sugar. It's a tough thing to do is why I like wait. Why right this is why I could go on the road and he honestly right? I love the hotel breakfast from I get. There's a couple of hope meals by points right and you should nice coffee and go back to bed like if you if you ask the guy for four org scrambled eggs with two pieces a week. Does you breakfast is two point right so you can eat heavy me for dinner. And that's why I like weight watchers right because not about carbs it also forces you if you want to work out and it has a meter and you can put your points in that this week at the Guy Forty eight workout points. My goal is sixty one but I'm fifty seven years old. Of course I and heavy weights I go I went. I went to a boxing class right. I didn't go to my Saturday classes. I didn't feel too good.

Atheist Experience with Matt Dillahunty & Don Baker
"Today's January twenty six two thousand nineteen. I'm your host Matt Dillon. Are you on some edzard. What's the deal joining me? This is John Baker. We are here in the sense to go. Then I know how you doing out there in the world. Yeah Yeah Yeah we are. We're live and You know stuff happens zip so after having by the way I'm GonNa talk some. ACA Business for funsies so after having solved our Toilet problem and then authorizing the board authorized the expense of nineteen thousand dollars words to replace the concrete sewer line that drains. It's been there for fifty six years or whatever and there's tree roots growing through it so it has to be done and that's just what it's going to be it comes out here. Runs runs out to the street. We're GONNA replace that. Everything's working after clearing it out Today it's not so it's a good thing that the port bodies still here however The repairs are we're gonNA be done Soon and then hopefully be working But that's a good point to remind people that you can become a patron and supporter of the Atheist Community of Authentic Pedro Dot com slash the atheist atheist experience. And that's the. That's the way we use your money. We should sell naming rights to that toilet we should. It's it's which ever apologised donates the most modern there you go it will become their throne and put their name on it. No it's it's all good but yeah I just got her this morning so yesterday we we were doing a series of adventures outings. The errands our a new board member and Events Coordinator and so we had done The Texas Renaissance Fair but yesterday we went to the Houston Museum of Natural Science And the planetarium originally it was just. We're going to the planetarium for the pink. Floyd show okay and I have some comments about that first of all these still do that. Yeah that was the thing back when I was a kid. Yeah it's actually the same thing is it. Oh my goodness so Thanks Aaron for organizing. This is and I'm glad we went and I enjoyed the show. But if I driven two and a half hours to Houston and two and a half hours back to see the forty you know listen to dark side of the moon and watch graphics that were originally done in like the ninety S. I might have been disappointed however as it turns out. Since there's nothing else there at the planetarium property theater you know and I want to go back and see like some space stuff but we did get to walk around That museum in Houston great stuff. There had a great time That would incredibly good dinosaur collection mhm they multiple t rexes and Other we we joked that we're going to spend all day looking at rocks because the fossils are essentially rocks walks. The rocks that the fossils are in Iraq's the gemstone collection is rocks pretty rocks the pottery and stuff that that's done by the Americans. No no no no. The taxidermy. Stuff was not rocks. But I decided that for fun we would say we went look rocks and stuffed animals malls because that's basically There was some good stuff. There is A Nice Egyptian exhibit. some cool stuff on you know evolution Asian in good dating and probably not as informative and educational as much as it is observational. But I out a really good time there Lots of stuff to see and I was exhausted by the time I got home. Lives her Sherwin so for the first time in eight is the dominant Demille Museum. We drove passive the Fine Arts Museum which caught my attention because Their advertisement is girl with a Pearl earring. The VERMEILLE vermeer not for me But also at the at that. Here's the museum they had Faberge display including a faberge egg a bunch of items that were created. It was a good day and so so While we just drove my truck and didn't use the van because there weren't that many people who showed up here and some people just met US there Yeah if for the people who who are in the Austin area or going to be in the area buildings open seven days a week roughly from eleven to nine or so. There's a number of events going on including various gaming gatherings and philosophical off discussions and then the hosts were recording countless shows now in addition to the experience and talk to them which was on earlier Friday nights is truth. Wanted but there was a problem with the Internet and so that that truth wanted is going to air immediately after this I believe on the same channel. Same as we've done for other things so if you missed ocoee or if you missed wanted on Friday you'll be able to watch it. The the official premiere of the recorded version of a live show immediately following. If you can't get enough atheism today and you should do right. Because there wasn't very I was here when they were recording. There wasn't all that much atheism on there. There was Interesting pay perhaps conspiracy theorist type stuff off and on and some good discussions. Yeah and Topaz imaginary friends. Okay yeah that you know Dan Had Eric Murphy theonest guest. And so that'd be airing right after this. In addition to the atheist experience. Talk here then truth. Wanted we also produce godless bitches. Parenting beyond belief Secular sexuality which Airs Live Live on Thursdays and Just way too much stuff for me to name but not too much stuff for you to watch because we're finally producing enough content so that it's is not just ooh call in and argue with the douchebag you know me being the Douchebag News twenty four hours a day every day I I would do this show every single day for three hours. My goodness Yeah so life man is his life. This is this is like a okay so anyway You have been doing this show longer than I have a calendar time by a couple of years. But you've gone far more episodes awesome. I have yeah but I haven't done as many episodes on failures and where where I come in with the topic all the time I I do try to do that. And today you have in other topic another topic is kind of a light topic today Last time I talked about God's anointed leaders And how the Bible sort of says you know every every leader is anointed by God and chosen by God and you better damn will obey them Today I have an editorial from the magazine Christianity Andy Today that came out December nineteenth and It's about the about the impeachment trial and such and I'm going to read read a couple of quotes from it and then read a couple of his responses and that'll be my topic today And as a reminder yeah The Atheist Community Boston is is nonpartisan nonpartisan and we're not endorsing any candidate or anything else but we can in fact talk about issues and we can talk about people's positions on issues and stuff like that. It's right so we're not telling you who to vote for absolutely absolutely not. Well we would like you to vote. Though I can not voting as a good thing I can take opposition to other people to participate in the system. especially if you're going to be one of the people who complains about the right. which would you everybody complains about? I I loved hearing from people complaining. They're like I don't voting's a waste of time and all I'm tired of voting for the lesser of two evils. Well if you even if you view it that way where there's two evils voting for the less of lesser of those two evils is by your own admission the better choice and and if by not voting the worst of the two evils gets elected or gets passed as legislation you basically implicitly supported and endorsed the greater of the two who evils by not on sending a message. Okay yes you are are sending a message and don't get me wrong apathetic. I used to be on it. I I was largely apolitical. I didn't care. I didn't think my vote Matt. Oh I live in you. Know in this place and it's going to go read or it's GonNa go blue depending on what my vote doesn't matter. There's lots of other reasons listens to vote and it's not. I think I think when people do that. Oh I'm vote. Why would I vote for the lesser of two evils I think that's a a gross oversample simplification perhaps misrepresentation but it. Lets me know that they're at least okay. And and actually I've seen people post that I'm not gonNa vote for the last two evils. Let the let the worst or the of the two evils have it and let this whole thing burned down and crumble. So that we can start over again attend because Yeah the the sausage making making isn't very pretty there. Yeah it's also an issue of like the perfect is the enemy of the good and if you expect the there's not a single candidate or probably not even a piece of legislation that I would remotely consider perfect If anything politics is the art of compromise and if nobody's particularly happy happy the argument is that you probably done pretty good but if if you're waiting for perfection if you have some kind of Utopian ideal yeah then you're GonNa find yourself constantly disappointed and sometimes you go with this just better or this is good enough and this gets the foot in the door to allow you know. Allow us to continue continue improving.
2020 Pro Football Hall of Fame Class
"Pro football hall of fame I introduce the class of twenty twenty their centennial class and I am pretty diverse group here going in so what Mike let's run through some of these yeah and and some of these are so these guys are before my time so before your time as well some guys we saw a play so let let let's have a couple of these first Paul tag Lee boots and he was the the commissioner who took over for Pete Rosell he was the bridge between Roselle and die and Roger Goodell who we have today certainly the took the baton did a lot of good things for the game for sure yeah I get that now I'm not surprised I guess that he got in considering E. took it to a different level with TV contracts made a lot of money for the game took it into a different era yeah he's one of those it's like why do not in already yeah comic Marvin Miller yeah baseball I was a little bit surprised by that one or is it some other ones Donnie shall and and cliff tires are both a little bit before my time I I read you know I know the teams of Donnie shell played on a wood heater he was for the Steelers teams that were just absolutely spectacular are you know click Harris was a cowboy enough said so those two guys get in our let's run through a couple other ones he Jim covert I remember him with the bears as an offense of linemen I don't remember Bobby Dylan who was a D. back for the Packers Austin Dillon Tate today they made the right call Jack I was a beast yeah okay and we we was on the the body Packers of assuming yeah I'll wait like even before that it was like ten years before the merger all really okay yeah see played like late fifties and into the sixties mid fifties yeah okay all right so don't reach sixties they'll go back a little bit at New York Jets tackle Winston hill not that familiar with him but lions defensive tackle out Alex Karras who was a great player and also went on to be an actor he was in blazing saddles which Mike if you haven't seen it is an all time classic a movie that would never get made today because it's incredibly politically incorrect and he was the father in Webster which one of your favorite TV shows yeah Webster Webster and Bobby don't fill but Alex Karras is also said suspended for an entire season for gambling on football did you know that yeah early sixties yeah I miss the season are Scott Chicago cardinals this it tells you how far back that goes tackle Duke Slater goes into the hall of fame Cleveland Browns wide receiver Max speedy bears defensive and and sprinkle near giants GM George young who I remember he was a he was a guy who was there during the Parcells run when Bella check was it a says that when they had an unbelievable group of assistance there and he drafted very well guys like Phil Simms some guys really under the radar at large Taylor helped really kind of build that team cell George young goes and we know bill Cowher a Jimmy Johnson they they got their surprises on TV this past weekend what do you think of Calar I don't I think ours I don't think he's all famous hourly there I think is like the on this list of qualified to talk about this from worry lines up with my viewing yeah I you know I know he won one he got to another any was there a long time it's a great story because he's he's a Pittsburgh guy grew up there you know all that good stuff but what what's she in for longevity you know I mean I don't know I'm a a are they considering like contributions as a broadcaster to that kid I mean he's not that good only has been doing it that long what is your is on an hour a week yeah exactly yes I know it not look exactly are the interesting thing is that they they're some the hall of fame centennial class was selected by a special Blue Ribbon panel which included hall of fame board selectors league historians hall of Famers and bill Belichick yeah so there were thirty eight finalists were chosen from a list of three hundred nominees over the past five months and the hall of fame class of twenty twenty comprised of modern era players will be selected in Miami beach on February first the day before the Superbowl so you're wondering like the word the wise all these you know older guys well the the guys you probably saw play we you know we'll be getting in that cell that was that's the way that that that check out but shall I do go back to die shell for a minute now and I'll get to the reason why you wanted to do this for for a couple reasons but he's the fifth member of that steel curtain team Joe Greene mean Joe green Jack Lambert Jack ham Mel blunt and now dot a shell goes in from that Pittsburgh team but I am we should probably place for people again which we will little back but one of the coolest things I I heard was the the audio conversation between Harold Carmichael and and David Baker who's the the president of the pro football hall of fame but Carmichael goes and he was at all decade nineteen seventy selection when he retired he held the league record with a reception and a hundred twenty seven consecutive games he had a touchdown reception on almost fourteen percent of his career touches that's awesome any finishes his career with really good numbers in any near where you know again it wasn't like it is today where they pass as much as they did but in a plane thirteen years and really that's a little bit misleading you really play twelve years that thirteen year with the cowboys only played two games but he had almost nine thousand yards seventy nine touchdowns averaged more than fifteen yards per catch he was a stud and from nineteen seventy three to nineteen eighty two no receiver had more receptions yards touchdowns are games played that's pretty awesome do you wonder why it took that long but it was great to see him get and I'll tell you the other guy I mention this before we took time out they get send that never played a down in the NFL yet maybe had more of an impact than any name that we just right off that's the sable what NFL films did for the National Football League what which Steve sable date with his dad add both local guys and of course if you you know NFL films right over there mount laurel what they did to promote the game of football in the sixties when it was no where near the number one sport the country I mean you had baseball you a boxing your college football all ahead of professional football what they did to highlight the game to shine a different spot like to be creative in an artistic with the way that you look at the game utilizing classical music slow motion yeah replays you different camera angles you name it what they did to change the way that people look at the game was nothing short of remarkable and a and it's a shame that it's happened posthumously Steve got to win the Elbe doctors father into the hall of fame at the times the was battling brain cancer but for him to get in I thought was flat out awesome yes not he yeah got it back everything's under the contributions that side you have still to this day yeah I mean he tell me somebody who is more deserving I'm telling you AP is deserving is anybody so the one that I and I know Jodie touched on this when I was coming and I was listening to him and he's dead on about this it's a real shame and I I don't know if it's gonna happen former night I I I really hope it does but it's a real shame that I Joe Klecko didn't get it again this year if if you're not familiar with me you know when you hear Dan Klecko on our air doing eagles post games and and like you work with during the football season a damn good friend of mine but Joe was a great player he's a local guy grew up in Chester went to temple but was a phenomenal player for the jets eat play from seventy to seventy seven to eighty eight and the first Jeez for five years of his career the sac wasn't even cactus that so and he was a guy who literally you could play everywhere he played the tackle he played nose tackle he played defensive end you could move asides yeah you can move in every single place on the football field and all the guy did was the lever and and it's unfortunate because nose tackles indeed tackles are gonna put up monster numbers think about you know a guy like Fletcher **** could have a big game but because he's at being occupied by two tacklers or maybe is not getting a sack he's just he's creating the pressure somebody else gets the sack that happens often times you know but it it but a lot of those years even look like I was playing end they can keep the sack is that in other words like for example I seventy eight he was a defense of an I. seven eighty he was a defense of an eighty one he was a defense of that then he moved more inside your starting in in eighty two eighty three and the rest of his career but I know Gary Myers of Jody had on earlier in his show was a guy who really pushed for kind of the way ray push for for a tiny the Donald you know in a domino kind of pushed we double push for Dawkins yet Dawkins yeah double push for doc hold on which bush for Dawkins Gary Myers push for collect but it's he didn't get a ton of votes in the US and and that's you know probably not a great sign but I hope at some point they come to their their senses and and Joe Klecko gets and but that was that was the one that kind of stood out to me I know you know drew Pearson went on his his harangue about not getting in but that was one that stood out so what what it since we're on this Mike let let's play the Carmichael again so this this is it the audio of the phone call David Baker calling Harold Carmichael and letting him know that after all these years because Carmichael's but after this for a long time after all these years he finally got it my great grandma and to hear that you're gonna have a bronze bust in canton Ohio hello all men you're going to be a member of the centennial class and we're we're gonna tell you and keep your legacy alive forever yeah or what you're talking okay thank you great that's pretty cool I mean I think that's a genuine reaction right there what you got from hell Carmichael and it's it's well deserved you know this isn't just some sympathy vote that this is a guy who deserve to be at and your was ahead of his time in terms of the size and was versatile what could catch a long ball was a great are you know fade end zone alley OOP I could go over the metal versatile could do almost anything and you know play the game at six foot eight we came out of southern a small school and went on to have some great years for short was very good the playoffs still had amazing career so happy

Yeah a lot has happened since then it has been wild ride indeed So before we get into to the heart of the matter edgeware and everything related to it. Let's get a bit of background. How did you first get involved in Crypto? Yeah Yeah it's an interesting for for me. I was a born and raised in Cincinnati. Ohio And so like didn't really have too much exposure to like general tech stuff wasn't born in and you know Silicon Valley or anything but actually read. I think the wired article on crowd and was kind of just really interested in how the coin or like this. This type of technology like was something that anyone could tap into obviously for different use cases and then got an internship in the Valley Tom. Tom Ended up getting in paid in Bitcoin or requested to be in Bitcoin. I wasn't like a big Gamer in high school and so like Mind A- now is GONNA be a radical moment for me So through college did some network research looking at different addresses and things like that through through a lab at Penn.. Starting a company with a co-founder Azru we built a company called source that was airbnb for Wi fi so sharing gambling. We wanted to use a year. See Twenty token in also Helped invest at the rough draft into like Kripa companies in this was during 2017 centrally. So kind of been all around but yeah that's that's the kind of story for me. And what is it that you found attractive and one that made you want to dedicate more time and built a company in a product. I was attracted basically to the coordination and allowing different actors. Who might not know each other at Trust my settings And so I think the use cases is that were really interesting to me less on the financial side but like you know creating some type of research coin to like help basically produce more public goods. It's so that kind of angle for me on. I think that's kind of naturally led into the work we do at common also creating new system like edgeware or creating interface or tools. That help help other people coordinate around things. One thing that we'd really like to do is yeah just continue forward yeah cool and so You Know Oh you then you withdrew you you guys co founded the Commonwealth Company together. So sort of the vision of Commonwealth company then cardinals. The tagline tagline. We're using now is basically used to organize your community. You know that kind of encompasses governance. So what is like community organizing. It's distributing token or just like Aligning all your stakeholders actually getting people to discuss issues or topics And then funding different things so covering that full gamut in building out a product Protocol suite that actually helps with any protocol to help help them make their community. Work Better Hopefully we can extend outside of Crypto or as crooked as the world everything will be organized coming off

Maybe maybe a hundred and thirty isn't that awesome was he on on their he he lon way you on the freeway you loved it and he said thanks for bringing me back to the glory days. He didn't feel like he he loved it. He loved the idea but then I saw him on it right. Okay yeah I mean I would just assume that that would cause. I mean he was just irreparable. Damage back a heart or kidney failure. Yes he had a little bit. Okay see that's it was worth it. You said it was worth the whole thing I mean. He was just risen around the grounds of the nursing home just the time of his life people. The people in charge of the facility got a little tight with me but I just said Hey. I'm Ron Burgundy yeah that was it yeah. That was your only. That was my only. What did they say.

It's called Spaghetti. Listen to that. It's just about more Spaghetti Spaghetti for people. We don't have to get into it. I actually I actually thought he'd the elderly more Spaghetti Yeah. I mean if they don't know if they necessarily really need more spaghetti. I feel like if you do it to for homeless. People though that's fantastic will maybe that's what would you maybe that's idea. After we take a little bit off the top yeah now do do you have grandparents. Yes and they must be awfully proud of what you've accomplished. Yeah my grandma is and what do they make of your your music. Sh- I mean she definitely if I played it for her. She wouldn't know it was mine music. Oh and she would probably be like. I don't want to hear this but she's proud so they they enjoy it. Talk or Donald Think so okay. Maybe some of them. There's there's probably a good you know maybe two that. I could play her that she would be fine with what I mean. What ah portion of fandom do you think you have in the elderly community. Oh Man I mean I could look at my analytics on twitter or instagram and I would be an interesting study. I look let's look right now. Let's look right now. Let's see how many octogenarians you have who consider themselves fans. Let's see who love have to get down to the beats so it's you can access yeah listening right now fifty five sixty four yeah. We got one percent. Okay okay sixty five plus. Guess what one percent so one percent. These are the real one percenters octogenarians love a little hill in DM while they're doing water aerobics at the pool. Yeah thanks so then thank you S. H. Rate Yeah. What do you think that means. SMH surely must help is what I always thought it meant. It means shake my head but oh okay schick. Why would you wanNA shake your headache SMA Komo. Am I right big time Smith Yeah. Let's talk about cholesterol medication. Okay lipitor good for controlling cholesterol levels or should people change their diets as well. I I I legally am not allowed to comment because the last time I did right. I got in trouble okay so I don't know the specifics of car to be able to to commonsense is put down the cheeseburger bigger. Yes or pick up the litter. Yes yeah. That's both some people need but Ludo knows I'm. I don't know what the right answer is Dr. If you're listening we're not doctored about molly you ever take that stuff and when I was younger should senior citizens take ecstasy now. MD coming don't think so. It's pretty rough on your system yeah but it's interesting. I wonder if you're one percenters. If they're just bragging the molly train all day long they they could be what do you think about this. I just thought of this idea so forgive me if it's not fleshed out about a DJ school for Senior Citizens would that be something you'd be interested in setting up just get a bunch of octogenarians in a room teach them about beat matching cross Asfandyar curve control. Get some loops going make some beats that honestly sounds like my own personal uploaded to soundcloud. Don't non interested not run run. Where did you learn those words. How do you know so much about. Dj Technique we'll Carolina. You don't know everything about me. Okay when I was doing Cable News in New York City in the the eighty s actually befriended grandmaster flash for a period of time and he showed me a couple of things on the ones and twos and it's nothing like like what Dylan can do here but but though flash I did put out a single around one thousand nine hundred eighty three called news funk two thousand quite serious serious. Can we hear I thought you'd never ask. Dj Dillon Francis Thank you didn't ask me. I don't even know Nick. Do you have news funk today in nick. You always have two thousand loaded up ready to go all right. Let's take okay. Let's take a ride here. It is from nine hundred thirty news one two thousand Bra Bra Bra Bra Yeah Perm's. The last three to blast to to say wow was that not that was interesting. It never made it on the radio you except for a couple of college she yeah yeah. I was called news funk two thousand yeah. It's not very newsy yeah. I think think it was anything like the two thousand I think we were trying to predict what the two thousand sound was gonna be like and wasn't that wasn't this very often guard of you but the drum machine was cool right. That's the best I wish you. Why are you laughing so much. It's maybe it's flattering it. Is I feel like I never want to play it again. No emotions good absolute there. You go that absolutely. Louis is the way to take that okay well. I feel like you guys are making fun of me. Whatever I have enough self esteem to know that Ron you can do whatever you in two thousand you took a Chanson. That's what life is all about exactly. You took an artistic and went. I'm not going to be made to feel no wow I went somewhere. It went directly. Thank you in fact that was one of the reviews of news funk two thousand it went. This song went somewhere it. Did this college. Newspapers said well it went somewhere. What were some of the other if you could name out very negative very okay very negative. I'm sorry let me ask you this. Do you meditate. I used to break and then while I was was when I was younger and then my dad made me wow okay which is really counterproductive to meditating right. Why would you make someone four school meditation so he's like son for the last time yeah you got it was it's six o'clock meditation time. Saturday exactly like I just got flashbacks Flashbacks Dylan for Christ's sake. Did you meditate. was that kind of the banter that was it wow so so. You never felt relax. It's no no the reason we had to meditate was we. It was so that we could watch TV. It was a trade off. It was a trade off medicine. How long was was the meditation. Periods posters like an hour an hour yeah lot of breathing exercise now. I'm on your side. Maybe fifteen minutes. My Dad's still wakes up every morning. Did you find it helped you so much or were you. Just it was too much. I'm as a little kid. Your mind is going exactly. I mean my mind is going Milem at right. Now I try to meditate every morning and I can't immediately. I started thinking about eight vile the movie eight Mile and how we have to save the people from the nuclear reactor Meltdown Three Mile Island. That's not what the movie was about though Gosh. I wish we could watch it right now to have this debate. It's not I guess we're GONNA have to agree to disagree. It's not what the movie's about though even well anyway when I meditate. That's those are the images the component important through my mind. It's like a carnival of horrors in my brain. No matter what I do that is depressing. So so what do you do now to relax ax your mind and in clear your head because I'm sure you have a hectic schedule. I take you know take naps or something like that and I I enjoy working. I'm very thankful handful. I you wake up and you just like boom. I've got a new beat a new rhythm a new a new song in my head. It's either that or like video ideas for. I like music videos. The visual expression of what you've already done yes gotcha but yeah it's like that or it's just sitting down in front of the computer and then kind of just just chipping away at whatever I imagine you travel a lot for your work. Yes how many how many dates a year are you on the road probably like a hundred and forty forty something hundred fifty something pretty extensive yeah lot of traveling a lot of traveling back to the elderly speaking of traveling and though I work with the elderly sometimes I do kind of resent the fact that they're able to get on a plane before me just because they're old a need special assistance. You know especially when I'm flying first class as I'm sure you do all the time. don't you think first class passengers and elderly people should be able to peacefully board an airplane at the same time and don't they I mean Ron has pushed me over when we've boarded a plant the same time I mean I'll help an old lady. Eighty put her bag in the overhead yes compartment but but I'm GONNA put my bag up. I you know it's understandable. I'll help the old bag of bones. Imagine you do do the same thing. I think I would put her bag. I not mine. Chivalry is not dead last time. We're GONNA play together. You kicked me in the back of the knees and said go faster. You're because you were so slow. Do you remember how I got all the passengers to chant hurry up Carolina Hurry Korea care. It was crazy. It was hilarious I would've I would've loved to see that I'm sorry to interrupt. I just the elderly. I have no idea what we're trying to do here. At this episode we have great guests with a fascinating career and you're just kind of like shoehorning this vague India about helping the elderly. I'm bringing my journalistic point of view and that's what people tune in for you know. There's at least six or seven shows where people just ask the same same old boring question. This is the Ron Burgundy podcast. The audience is paying top dollar for the show and they expect something more. We're not well. People get the show for free. It doesn't cost anything to download. Wait what that's a huge mistake. We should fix that immediately with you. Bring your journalistic point of view. You're also talking about hooking up corvette engines into the wheelchairs. Yes I am old people and I think you're you're suggesting giving molly to senior party. Dope just back me up here Dylan Ellen. I agree what you're saying. You're responsible and possibly a little. I think what you're saying is a real snooze. Okay and my new best friend Dillon Francis agrees. I mean honestly if I was an old person. I probably doing a bunch of molly. We here's the thing we have so much to learn from people who are older than us. I think we can all agree on that right yeah but it's also important to listen to young voices as well. You're young fellow your voice is valid and I want you to know that so Dylan Dylan. If you use your voice right now say whatever you want even if it's gibberish put on the spot really there there you go. That's it put on the spot on the spot. Really good nailed it right. It's important. That's important to say that and get that out of there. Yeah I would have said she yeah. I didn't want to offer you achieve. I I. I mean honestly what I said is not even I I mean it's probably on the same on par with with that gibberish because it didn't do anything no no no no no no that your words have power though I just I was was put on the spot. I thought it was pure. Poetry thank you. You could weave that into a song essentially being I liked it with a lower town to stay. Put on us by the details ability to deter other spot on the spot the spot her. You're asking the airplane. You're backing up the line. Eh that doesn't care line with your eight steamer drunks. No those are yours phoenix. They are mind but it's part of your job description description..
