Qualcomms incoming CEO on what he really thinks about Apples M1 Macs
"Welcome cristiano. Thanks for joining us on the podcast today. Very happy to be here. Obviously you had some big personal news. You renamed the new. Ceo starting to stummer congrats on that wall. Thank you so much. Incredible privilege for me to be named seal. I'm very honored butter. Yeah we'd love to hear a little bit about What are your first priorities. Going to be as the incoming ceo. Weren't you begin. A lot of people. Ask me this question. Would i like about about this transition. We're doing a qualcomm. This is a story of continuity and it's about keeping qualcomm. You know technology. I company company continue to lead the pace of innovation but having said that We have been doing over the past few years really transforming the company into beyond mobile in oh always had a very strong in mobile business our core business also the licensing business but we started to grow into automotive starting to grow into analog with our ephron sorta grow into the beginning of that so the priorities will be continued to execute on this incredible opportunity. We have ahead of us. Which is five g which is also making telecommunications or communications in general no longer unique to the mobile space but across every other industry and really capitalized on that opportunity. Cristiano to that as you take on this role what are some of the biggest challenges facing qualcomm. Wh what keeps you up at night. The number one challenge we always said in. Our businesses is very unique. We have to reinvent ourselves every year. We have to win the flagship. You know over and over again every year so you know i think all of us qualcomm. It's about making sure hours was focused in driving technology roadmap to become complacent continued to drive the roma ford. And you know right now. If asked me what keeps me up at night right now is supply chain grads as having the semiconductor industry. I think it's the result of a lot of success in general about an acceleration of digital transformation across a number of industries. But this is causing a lot of stress as the supply ching was not prepared to deal with the growth. And but you know we're navigating a very happy to the position we have right now. When is the supply chain issue going to end like. Is this something that gets resolved. Pretty quickly or is it something. That's going to take a long time until like samsung and tsmc. Some of these other companies can build mark factories. No look if will get better at the end of this year we have line of sight and even our scale We're very fortunate very well position. And we have line of sight of this going to get result with entity or but you're correct Part of solving this problem is to a celebrates didn't build out more capacity and that is about building buildings in new clean rooms in new equipment. The way to think about that shara is When depend hits There was an assumption made in general across the industry that that the capacity for semiconductor. You know for if especially if there will be recession given pandemic mike you know was it was good in the reality. What we saw was the opposite the enterprise. Transformation of the home people buy new computers by new printers. New wi fi systems upgrading broadband companies had to connect their assets. So we saw celebration of. I'm not in digital transformation across the board Paper money disappear. That's people started digitize. You know everything payments Even a small business and we always said the mobile has been very resilient five g we said Into very beginning we state our five g numbers even the beginning of the pandemic said. If i've transition is still going it's important. We ended the year the high end so all those things happen for a capacity that was not put in play for growth. And i think we're just seeing you know the effects of of demand in supply. But the manda will catch up with Supply supplier vice versa towards the end of this calendar year one area. I'm really interested to hear about is the pc market You know obviously this is an area that had tons of demands over the past year for laptops and other devices report working from home call comes made a big push in putting your mobile chips in. pc's We saw apple. Come out with. Its m one powered max which proved to be extremely popular How is demand for those m one devices. Impacted your focus on pc chips. Hasn't your computers more and demands like what sort of impact has the m one had on akam pc. This days is one of my favorite topics. Conversations finger for discussion look rented and talk about the specific demand. For 'em one. This is a great opportunity to talk about the trend so the pc was being transformed and we always believe welcome that you know. They'll be conversions between mobile nbc and mobile became the bigger platform. They're more smartphones. Abc's to develop. Our eco-system is driven on the mobile side. And we believe in that convergence. That's where we started. You know several years ago. I think more than four years ago with microsoft on this journey of windows on snapdragon in now recently with starting to see snapdragon on chrome os in chromebooks then the pandemic hits and would have been hit. It change certain things forever. And i am super excited about this because like if you're talking to me from a pc right now. And i'm sure you are you. And roger. b. C became a communicator device. And as people make phone calls they started make a teams called zoom. Zoom became a verb in many languages in c. now is connected became a communicator device. Camera become really important. I'll do a multimedia became important. You doing you take a break. Watch netflix the future. With five g connected disease are going gonna watch Not only video but gonna play stream games with ex cloud an amazon luna luna or google stadia and all of that and then on top of it people. That had a workstation are home. They don't have a workstation to have their laptop but using five on demand computing. You'll get access to any application that you can run on the cloud computing platform of the cloud so the pc's completely transformed in apple switching to a m one with an arm instruction set just validated at transformation. Start moving developer as fast paced. So we're more convinced an ever. Conversions is going to happen b. C's going to be a great opportunity for expansion on snapdragon and it's that's one of the first things i did after being announced to co elect was to do the acquisition of nubia s. We believe there's an opportunity for us to lead into cpu performance as well as we start to think about this complete transitions of pc to associate. So let me let me ask gonna fall on that. Because i think we might have a new but one thought on this question about apple versus talk about the long-term opportunity but were you frustrated by the fact that you have been pushing snapdragon power laptops for a couple years now. That have really gained a lot. Traction while attention than apple comes in with the san juan and one powered mac guy huge buzz postal raving about these things whereas the other snapdragon laptops will ask. We have not really gone. The best to reviews was some frustration. That did you get to go back to your team coverage thick how you do this. I'm just curious your thoughts. On the the the different reactions that though snapdragon lockups had versus those and one. Max no no not at all i. Here's how answer this question roger. We knew that we started this journey. And this journey about a windows for example which is being running on x eighty six. You know Forever when needed to introduce arm extraction sets to windows and we work with microsoft and we knew that we're still building this journey as an example for example In this summer we're gonna now. We're celebrating that you know that next latest update for microsoft windows which announced support a sixty four. Bit emulation on orm in wish starting to see the very first time the enterprise ice laptops. Hp just launch commercial. Enterprise laptop with into snapdragon. So we're at the beginning of the ramp in the way we see the apple lounge. It's a great tailwind. Because what apple did by lounging does not only validated that transition but you know moved developer ecosystem the difficulty that you have when you try to introduce a new instruction set on the pc and this is not new to to apple. I think they've been to those that. That transition twice if you look at their history and then maybe have tried in the past trying to pass the longtime ago with a windows rt and and that really only works. When you're no longer have a second class you know a platform is just the great windows. Experience in every application is gonna run in. You're going to be able to keep everything you had a windows. Any wedded new coming from mobile platform in in. We believe we're now getting to the end of this journey in what what apple did which really help brother ecosystem. Apps apple helps microsoft basically create the resolve within developer system to start doing arm native apps going forward so my answer to a question is super. Please we're super excited invalidates. You know that bats. And i think that's going to happen Not only within. You know the apple wicca system but within windows as well as google and no question when we announced a new via acquisition if you look a press release was incredible as a parade of everybody to mobile nbc segment including microsoft in google in the saint press releasing. This is great. You know so. We're excited about that. Yeah i wanted to dive a little bit more into nubia You know you guys pay. I think one point four billion for this company started by former apple engineers. Basically you know why. Why do you need nubia okay. I'll you know i'll tell you. The story in this has a lot to do with the conversation we just had about. How welcome see some. The industry transitions in how we execute on them. So the story is if you remember back in tweet g. into feature phone days and the blackberry we knew as we brought four g and mobile broadband to the seller space. The will have to become computer. She's gonna have a broadband so you need to have a computer in your hand to make use of the broadband and you're going to have a prosser we're gonna run of have an application and In we knew at that point that you didn't have a high-performance processor for battery powered device we could not get that from the arm roadmap to so so we basically put together a cpu team and we build if you remember. Scorpion was very first. Gigahertz clock. cpu in a battery powered device After that crate in debt drove the absolutely majori of the smartphone platform across. You know that time you know indoor it was growing to other oh s.'s. At the time and clearly it was squawking was the forefront really creating a mobile computing platform with our own. Cpu

Anti-Asian Hate Crimes: Influencers, Activists Are Taking a Stand
"Month in honor of women's history month where featuring conversations with women and nonbinary leaders who are working to address the issues in their communities this week. We're speaking with amanda win. Amanda is the ceo and founder of rise a millennial driven social change incubator for citizen lawmaking because of her work passing legislation for sexual assault survivors. She was nominated for two thousand nine hundred nine nobel peace prize more recently amended has been working to mobilize a nationwide response to the surging attacks on asian americans. Since the beginning of the pandemic asian americans across the country have reported being targeted in three thousand hate incidents according to nypd data anti asian american hate crimes are up nineteen hundred percent in the last year and just weeks ago and eighty four year old. Thai american man was murdered in san francisco. A ninety one year old man was shoved to the ground and oakland's chinatown a sixty four year. Old vietnamese woman was assaulted in san jose and a filipino. American men was slashed in the face on a subway in new york city these assaults are happening during a pandemic where asian americans have disproportionately lost their jobs or had their businesses boycotted response to the recent attacks and the relative silence of bean stream media. Amanda posted a now viral video on instagram naming. The attacks and calling for media attention and public action. Amanda is here today to talk about this wave of violence. And what she's doing about it. Amanda thank you so much for joining us today. You for having me. I want to start with this viral video that you posted on february fifth. What led you to make that video saw. These videos of people being horrifically attacked in my community. I didn't see the mainstream media covering adding see anyone else talking about it. And so i thought to myself if no one's going to talk about it i'm going to use my voice and i'm gonna use my platform and ask people to help me get the word out and over night. Millions of people responded to it so three million people viewed it overnight and then in the following eleven point four million posts went up on tiktok response to it the next business day. The white house press corps asked the president if he has seen the video. Were you surprised by the reaction or were you like. No this makes total sense because nobody else is talking about this. I honestly was really surprised because this isn't the first time i talked about this issue before about race. General and every time that i had posted about race i have lost followers so when i turn on my camera that day to report that video i thought that i was going to lose more followers and i told myself you know it doesn't matter i am going to do this because it's the right thing to do and because people are literally dying to be heard right now. I want to talk to the larger race dynamics of these attacks but actually i wanted to ask why these attacks may be personal to you. You identify as asian american and have talked about your family's immigration story. And i was wondering if you might share some of that story and tell us a little bit about how it is affected your experience of these attacks and your response to them. Yeah of course. I'm so glad you asked that question because so many of these interviews. I've been doing of just been focused on the world. Terrible parts of it. I'm so proud to be hyphenated america and my experience it's been asian-american be means merican and my parents are from vietnam. They went into death to seek life and to reach these shores where they thought that they would find freedom in freedom for us has not only been you know the freedom to exist that persecution it also is the rest of the things that is afforded to us constitution including the right to petition the government and for me at least it's not only a privilege but our responsibility to keep pushing our country to be a more perfect union for me growing up as an asian american. I grew up in corona california. Where darn actually many asian-americans. I remember being one of the very few in elementary school middle school and even still in high school and comes with experience when you are really a minority and you look around and no one looks like you eat the same food that you do and then you grow up and then you see that all the things that you were made fun of for all of us and become really trendy when the communities appropriate at so. That's part of the immigrant. Unfortunate part of the asian american experience. Of course there's this perpetual foreigner stereotype. I think every single asian american has been asked the question. Where you from no really. Where are you from. And while that is and could sound like an innocent question at the heart of it at the root of a is idea that you don't belong and when you keep insinuating perpetuating this idea of uttering a whole group of people what you have are consequences that have resulted in. Lives being lost. Did you experience or did your family experience racism directly in the community or was it this. Pervasive or in addition is pervasive feeling around belonging. I mean it certainly is anxiety about being killed on the street. These attacks have happened. Have been two people doing everyday. Things like walking on the street or going grocery shopping. They one of the things that really stuck with me. In a scarring way was of twenty twenty. A man stabbed family in that stabbing. He stabbed two year old and a six year old because he thought that they were chinese burmese. And he on the record said that he thought they were spreading cova. So you know there's been a threat of people saying well. How do you know if these are really hate crimes. not only. are these con camera. They're also being fully admitted to buy the perpetrators
My Child Says No to Everything
"Son soon to be four years old has always been a bit emotional. He's our first born and we have a two year old daughter. however i've seen an increase in his emotions progressively over the last two years. And we have a new behavior that i am totally stumped by when my daughter was two months old. My husband's suffered a massive stroke and this event was a catalyst for a series of rough months with my son. He would have pretty major tantrums. Lots of crying and whining and lots and lots of no. This was all very understandable given the shakeup of a new baby and then dad being very sick my husband had a long tough recovery but after life start to settle back into our new quote normal. Post stroke we were able to work with our son on the tantrums and they seem less and less frequent however this no behavior continues and has gotten even worse over the last six to twelve months. Every single thing we ask him is no. It's time to go to school. No it's time to go outside. No it's time to go home. No it's time for a birthday party. No it's time for santa to come no. Sometimes it is as simple as an emphatic. No and sometimes this increases to more of a tantrum with crying and lots of no no. No every day starts with him saying no. I don't want to go to school usually with some crying. Drop off then when we pick him up. It's no. I want to stay with crying. On the way home. We have tried ignoring acknowledging redirecting talking about it but no matter what we have done it seems the no behavior continues. He even says no to getting presence in fact when it comes to giving my son anything new. He not only says no but adds that he wants to throw it in the trash. He's very adamant about not wanting it. I usually tell him. We don't throw presents or closing the trash but we can put the way you don't have to keep it once it's out of sight. He is sad and says no. I do want it any thoughts on how to best deal with this okay. I i'd like to give a little context and talk about the word. No and words like that. Our children us. What's going on here. What does this mean. and then i'll offer some suggestions for responding in a way that's helpful and maybe talk a little about what gets in our way as parents so i a little about the word. No this word is one that children realize very young has some aumf to it has some power to it. Because it's usually the first word they hear from us where we're stopping them correcting behavior even if we say it very very calmly. There's an edge to it. No they sense the power and that word when they become toddlers and have a developmental need to be more autonomous than they often. Latch onto this word. No as a way of asserting self asserting. Well i have a different point of view than you. This is me so it's very positive word in that sense of parents could see it that way. I know it's hard when it seems like our child is just defying or resisting us but it is an expressive powerful word. That children use even in situations. I remember magda gerber used to always say you offer your toddler an ice cream cone your toddlers reaching for it. And while they're reaching for it they're saying no they need to assert that will and disagreeing with us is one powerful way to do that so no is often more about a feeling for young children than it is a true command in this case it seems. This boy is definitely using no to express a feeling or feelings of overwhelm. I can't handle this right now. i'm not sure i'm feeling stock. I don't have control over this situation. We don't know exactly what he's saying. Although the fact that he has a two year old sister is certainly a big part of it and his father having a massive stroke. Yes there are very out of control feelings. That children have when their environment changes like that. When the dad that was always very able to take care of them and pick them up or whatever can't do those things necessarily and other family members are frazzled and upset all of that is going to feel like a big wall to a young child. It's going to be overwhelming. And that's okay. They can pass through this but not without some struggle and what. He's seems to be expressing in all these situations. Is that struggle. That emotional struggle. That is again much more about feeling flooded and overwhelmed about this than actually being decisive and commanding saying no. I've made this choice. And i don't want this. It's not coming from that reasonable
Kelly Loeffler sells stake in WNBA team after clashing with players over Black Lives Matter
"We have exciting news in the wnba. That kelly lafler has exited the building. Bob bub-bubba i feel like we should have celebration. Music will and even better a you. Part of that ownership new ownership group includes montgomery has an actual wnba player. And you know who has a podcast in who is a somebody who's been a real voice on issues equity all summer and beyond you know well into the past tradition in a history of ad. I think that's important because it means that the the voice of anti black lives matter is now being replaced by someone who can fully embody the spirit and direction of the wnba. I could not agree more and the power that the wnba has had. I mean we talk about when we talk about you know leading the movement. The black lives matter movement. We talk so often about the nfl or the nba. But really the wnba. And we've said this before. I mean they started this movement. Back in twenty fifteen in the sports world and You know they basically made raphael warnock. Who's now a us. Senator a player in this when they all wore those warnock shirts i think at that point he was voting. Nine percents Who pulling at nine voting. He was polling at nine percent And he wound up winning. And i think that the power that these women have in the way that they have used their platform for good and for inclusion and equity and making the world. A better place is something. That is such a tonic. To see it what we've gone through the past four years so i i'm thrilled to see it. I'm glad kelly law is out of the wnba. Imagine playing for someone who denies that your skin color that you as a human being matter. I mean she you know she tried to parse it a little bit more subtly than that she was talking about she would talk about the black lives matter organization as opposed to the concept of black lives mattering and i think she did that deliberately so that she could say things like i mean she said some really you know i i would say pretty crazy or just you know in such bad faith things such as that black lives matter doesn't want jesus in the church in you know that's just the tip of the iceberg and it just is so deeply offensive to people who are deeply committed attack but what i love about the wnba an and the way that they inserted themselves into those georgia senate races is that you now have a group of predominantly black women who are somewhat responsible for having a black vice president have to go into the senate to break a tie yet and that is i mean i just. I love the way that that is an expression of power but this is not over in georgia is already passing some legislation to make it more difficult to vote did particularly pinpoint Practices that black communities have used to get out the vote like souls to the polls closing the ability of pulse be open on sundays in the future and kelly law flir is not exiting from politics. She is actually spearheading some of those georgia movements to make voting more difficult for community of Communities of color. And so i you know this is. This is going to be interesting because it's you know this is not the credit should not be rolling here. This is still a very a live issue for georgia and for the rest of the
Obamacare would get a big (and quiet) overhaul in the Covid relief bill
"The covid nineteen relief bill. That passed the house on saturday and is now making its way through. The senate includes an expansion of the affordable care act health care legislation. It would be the first significant expansion of the aca also known as obamacare since it passed in two thousand ten white house correspondent marine groppy reports. This would primarily helped people in two ways. One is for the first time people who are making more than four times. The federal poverty level will become eligible for help paying their premiums so for example if a sixty four year old woman is making fifty thousand dollars. Right now she's not eligible for help but under the law for the next two years she could get subsidies that could make her premium dropped from about thirteen thousand dollars a year to just about five thousand dollars a year. Secondly people who make one hundred and fifty percent of the federal poverty line could get additional subsidy help they already qualify now but the extra help would allow them to buy plans without premiums that have much lower deductibles than what they can afford right. Now there's also incentives in the bill to For the twelve states that have not expanded medicaid under the aca to give them extra money in hopes that they will do so to cover people below poverty in their states who don't currently qualify for medicaid. These changes that are in. The bill are expected to stay in the question for whether they become law is whether the entire bill passes. It's not expect to get much. If any republican support. The democrats need to stay united in order to pass the legislation and get it to president biden's desk and these are provisions that he has promised he has supported and once in there and he's expected to sign the bill into law go relief plan which also includes fourteen hundred dollar checks too many americans and more could enter. Its final stretch on wednesday. Senators may begin. Twenty hours of debate on the measure. That's expected to come to a vote later in the week. Majority leader senator chuck schumer said tuesday. That democrats have sorted through disagreements and now have their eyes set on the deals. Final details senate. Democrats are committed to passing the american rescue plan to crush the virus. Recover our economy and deliver help to americans who need it the most. We're on track to send the american rescue plan to the president's desk before the expiration of the enhanced unemployment benefit which occurs on march fourteenth. I expect a hardy debate. I expect some late nights on the floor. The bill could become law as soon as next week
A seat at the table for workers
"Are going to begin with trade. And we're going to do that because it's been awhile since the policy parts of what we buy from and sell to other countries has been the story in trade as opposed to the tariff parts of that part of our economy that dominated the past couple of years and our way in is a three hundred and eight page document out from the white house. This week called fittingly enough. The twenty twenty one trade policy agenda of the united states. It is as i said three hundred pages long. So the t. l. The are here is the biden administration intends to us trade policy to advance racial equity to fight climate change and to take on what it calls. China's coercive and unfair economic trade practices the core theme of the thing though is a worker centric approach to trade workers. The white house says are going to have see table. Marketplace's refinish your is on the trade desk today in a nutshell biden's new priorities mean free. Trade for free trade sake is out the window. It is a big contrast the elite and this president of the economic policy institute pre trump both democrats and republicans for a couple of decades when place trade policies. That were definitely not worker. Centric i would say more corporate centric. She says former. President trump was able to harness latent resentment around jobs industries that were lost over the years. And that's clearly something. The biden administration has tuned in on how that translates into policy over the next four years. Rufus york says president of the national foreign trade council in practice it plays out in enforceable rules on forced labour clear protection of the right to organize and bargain collectively that those need to be elements serve of trade agreements but the biden administration won't be in any rush to enter any new trade agreements according to sharyn o'halloran professor of political economy at columbia university. She says biden will try to shore up us. Competitiveness i as a way to protect workers. They're focusing on by american and precising use of american products and procurements developing infrastructure and so forth but being worker. Centric does not mean being protectionist. Halloran says the use of tariffs is likely to be much more surgical and you can expect a lot of talk of working with allies trade issues. A very clear break with the recent past in new york.

Reed told the officer he had 2 to 3 drinks and was on the prescription drug Adderall. Do you believe the driver we're talking about here is Britt Reid. Was actually impaired and should not have been behind the wheel of a car. We don't have the toxicology back. I don't know what it is going to be. What I do know are the statements that he made to police the night of if you have 2 to 3 drinks, and then you get behind the wheel of a car, you are likely over the legal limit. Do you believe he should face charges for this? Absolutely absolutely. But we're gonna be advocating for the most serious charges in the most serious sentence that Britt Reid could receive.

The Personal Chef Chris Spear On What The Job Entails
"You tell us a bit more of what. These job consists of what's What's your role sure. There's a couple of different ways that people do the personal chef thing. I think most commonly a lot of personal chefs do the in-home weekly meal. Prep type things. But what. I really wanted to focus on giving people a restaurant experience in their home so i don't do any meal prep i don't have like recurring clients. I mean i definitely have repeat clients. But what i do. Is i build a customized menu preferences of my guests. So i send them a questionnaire. Find out what they like. And don't like any diet preferences. And then i show up with everything. I bring my china all the cooking pots and pans. All the food and i make everything for them there and then i go set the table and serve it to them and we do afford a six course meal and it's really similar to going out to a restaurant so and you said that this is something that you do customized in and as you have a null like repeat customer so it must be very. It's must be like a tough set up in business as well one of your Be bingoing ease always to look for you know for new customers one hundred percent. That's the biggest thing is this week. I'm good but next week. I'm still struggling. As of this point. Like i have to events and i probably need to get to more. And you know you're always hustling every single day just to get another dinner. And that is the exhausting part of it. It's not like. I have a set thing where i know. I'm cooking for three or four families every week. It's just the same as if you in a restaurant you don't know from one day to the next business is going to be like. And so you attended like culinary school traditional canary school while only on so you made a decision. I think in your career that union wanting to work at the restaurant betsy you work on Food service companies like decks. So so what made you take the decision. A couple of things. I think one culinary school is ridiculously expensive. I went to johnson wales. I got a four year bachelor's degree and came out with student loan debt remaining of either pay four hundred and four dollars a month for ten years. That was what i had left after already paying for some and you know i graduated ninety eight and when you got out what the market was looking like is at seven dollars an hour cooking jobs and i couldn't live on that but i found a job working in a retirement community and they were offering me eleven fifty an hour but i also got you know. Two weeks paid vacation medical benefits for a one k. All that stuff and it sounded great. So i definitely the finances were a big part of that but i also say just. I never really loved that restaurant. Experience the kitchen life though working till two in the morning just kind of i think a lot of the attitudes of the chefs working in restaurants. I applied for jobs out of culinary school in. Wisconsin turned off by the attitude of many of the hiring executive chefs. I just thought these guys sound alike jerks. And i don't really want to work for them

Beer Brands in Gaming with New Belgium Brewing's Patrick Morgan
"What is new Belgium's perspective on gaming? Why is this an area that the Brad wanted to pursue as a way to connect with customers? Yeah. So I think it's kind of a interesting holistic story about four years ago in the craft industry wage was a lot of waxing and waning of the market in general and so we're looking at different markets to be in at New Belgium. We in general have a very big gaming history have a wow raid group since vanilla. They play in The Brewery. We watch Red versus Blue in the all-staff. We have a land gaming like party room in the upstairs gaming has been this very big encompassing involvement within the brewery. We even have a semi-pro Halo player on staff and cosplayers that work in our in our bar or club. And so what came about was that in craft brewing we weren't even talking to ourselves and a market that we are actually playing in as individuals. And so what happened was like, why are we not talking to ourselves? Why are we not in the space of why isn't craft beer in the gaming and kind of pop culture like geekdom kind of Mark and so so we started to explore it and this was about four years ago. And it really kind of brought about a lot of fun with in the brewery kind of excitement of shown that like, oh like yeah, we're already here like we know how to talk to ourselves this totally works. And so very first thing right off the bat is we approached dreamhack cuz we want to play in that Esports competitive side of things and I think our very first partnership ever was four years ago was csgo open in Atlanta, Georgia. And from then on we just haven't stopped and it's exploded since that's really cool. And I think it's it's awesome to to see that. You know Brad's do we talk about sort of how Brands enter into gaming and so many of them started maybe like wait, we we are playing video games. Why aren't we trying to connect with this audience? And especially if you have more and more marketers entering these Major Brands, we're seeing the way that gaming Partnerships take form continue to evolve because they're people that are displayed on audience. And so they really understand how to reach them. How have you learned over the last four years? What are some lessons you've taken away that would help guide your strategy today. It's really interesting because faith in the gaming industry as it's I especially Esports. I feel like it's this wild west of things when new brands are coming in and we've gone the route of supporting dead. So when it comes to competitions and stuff, we've actually kind of stepped away from those things a little bit and we've gone to supporting smaller streamers smaller communities and even some e sports players and uplifting them in their communities by providing them with meetups and stuff like that. So so coming into this space very genuine or sukuk and uplifting communities and those players or streamers to to a legitimate level and believe in them and bring them to these places whether it's a package Pax West twitchcon, whatever an intern growing that also I hate to say the word clout. I think it's a ridiculous word, but like growing that off while but in a genuine way because we're truly growing a family within the gaming industry and not just going in and doing a logo graveyard

"I think look at. You mentioned those gaps If you checked another gap. I am sure if you check the media big tech hollywood And the pray you know the the press and all these other institutions would find an even bigger gap because they were uniformly against trump and used their powers to remember the new york. Times said nowhere objectivity While trump's around so i'm not sure what this knee means. I think that had trump spent his time in georgia. Not just say. I'm gonna do one rally before and then use two thirds of that rally to complain about how he'd been treated. I think he could've won georgia and then that would have put a different gloss on his exit Now we don't know. What are those policies at kim outlined in the utah. We don't know what's going to survive. And what what isn't he could have made a case. I think that Before the the the capital riots and everything that his was was a disruptive But a necessary disruptive one term presidency and set things up for For better down the future. But we don't know that yet because we don't know what joe biden's going to do what his legacy is gonna do all presidents Enter with optimism and so forth in some some leaf. Barry defeated so We need some historical perspective to see what's going to happen. It could look very different for years from now. Depending on how successful the administration is all right.

"You know that has an effect on jobs and income here. So trade to me was a big opportunity to casualty of populism. That trade is somehow a bad thing. When i don't know any country that is cut off from trade or so forth that is prospering. To the contrary it's the countries that are most open to trade where ordinary people prosper. The other issue. I wanted to bring up was immigration which probably trump's signature issue on the two thousand sixteen campaign trail and there. It seems to me that he ran up against the limits of presidential power I mean recall that last year there was a thirty five day government shutdown the longest in history and the issue there was that trump wanted billions of dollars for his wall on the us mexico border which did not end up getting and then he declared a national emergency Him to shift money around and we have some miles of new wall but we also have Most of the miles that have been built are replacing existing structures. And so kim. I wonder if the people who were immigration voters in twenty sixty. If if you know the people who that's what brought them to the trump camp if they feel for years later like there's been progress made or the issue's been solved i think they do. I think they know that the issue hasn't been salt and even those hardcore trump supporters. Who voted for him on this issue. Always kind of understood. I mean many of them maybe did believe in the wall but i think they understood that it was more metaphorical and that is. That's why i would argue having spoken to them. They would argue that it was successful because what they cared about was it trumpcare it And i think that this is this gets at times. I have not agreed with all of donald trump's even many donald trump's policies have to do with immigration and the border but one of the reasons donald trump was elected is because there were a significant number of americans who felt that adequate attention has simply not been paid And that this is how you end up with eleven million undocumented people in the country And you know which we have noted is not an ideal situation either now. We would argue the way you handle. That is yeah. You do need some sort of border security. You can't have a sovereign nation without borders But then you set up some kind of long term immigration Deal policy to allow people to come here to work legally or to go back home to be here on a short term visas. There are all kinds of really innovative ideas out there For one reason or another that never happened over the past four years i think in part of the trump administration did come in. I think floating ideas for some kind of a deal..

"I think that's true with donald trump. And i think for people who supported a lot of his policy agenda and the good things that he did These were always disappointing and a distraction from the real work and the worst thing about them is. Most of them were unnecessary. I mean you mentioned one thing about them attacking good people after. They've left the white house. Well sometimes there are bad people that leave the white house that you have to fire. And when i was in the bush white house there were some of those people they left but the the effort was to do it in a way that spared their feelings right not to humiliate them. It's very million to have to leave a white house job or big job or a cabinet office and so your goal was to make it as least embarrassing and painful as possible. Because you don't want them coming back you so trump created enemies that he didn't need didn't need to have by by doing a lot of that stuff and it's it's not a coincidence that in the end it was these trump supporters that did more damage to than anyone on the left wing. You know when they arrived at the capitol. I wanna be clear. I'm not saying that. Every trump supporter is an insurrectionist or white premises as Some democrats are trying to suggest. But those people who considered himself supporters they. They really did more harm than anyone else. And what flowed from all this volatility. Has i think it's true to say political failure. I mean the twenty two thousand eighteen election's republicans lost the suburbs a lost the house of representatives. And it's true that the the president's party often gets a drubbing in the mid terms then The idea of second trump term and then earlier this month. Kim republicans lost the senate after those two georgia runoffs which to me look like they were eminently. Winnable races lost because of these these post-election antics by the president and now that's going to enable democrats to start dismantling A lot of the stuff we talked about it in the first half of the show. Well i agree with you on georgia. I think the overall results from the two thousand twenty election or a little bit more mixed What was very clear. Is that while. There seemed to be a lot of americans who were tired as it were of The trump presidency And simply that the nonstop craziness of it. And i would just like to add agree with everything you and bill have said about the president and his reaction to things and how it often made it worse but i don't think you can talk about that in the craziness of the trump administration over trump era without mentioning the media Which you know just spiraled all of this up into craziness Or democrats house. Democrats in particular. And they're you know they're not investigations and impeachment and the nonstop. You know where. We the whole russia collusion hoax. Which you know. Saddle sat on top of this administration. The whole time There were two sides to the craziness. trump bears his responsibility but a lot of our institutions and his opponents. Do as well to now. A lot of americans decided they were tired of that That seemed to play into the president's defeat at the election electoral pulse at the same time. Nancy pelosi lost a lot of seats in the house and despite the fact that republicans had far more people up for reelection They had you know as many as a dozen seats at one. Point in the senate that were considered at risk They held the senate right up until those george races I think the president did his party no favours on the way out by focusing on the election results for as long as he did And really.

"Had died in february and four years later kim You know. The trump administration has confirmed not just a a replacement for him that shares his view of textual ism and originalism but also to additional justices Brooke cavanaugh and amy coney barrett who are going to put their prints on american law for a long time right and in doing so created for the first time in a long time a court that does not have a five four split but rather there are six three conservatives. it's going to change the entire dynamic of the court. Because john roberts achieve justice is no longer going to be that swing vote. He has in recent years cared very much about the reputation of his court and at times. People like us have criticize him to the extent. He's done that in that. We thought he has sacrificed good law. And some good moments in order to to try to to shelter the court as it were from headlines criticisms that. I think we could argue. He's going to get no matter what he does. But that's gonna change now. Probably not just in terms of the way the court rules but the cases it's willing to take on and hopefully it will be a little bit more about handling some of these longstanding issues for instance you have to do with the second amendment that it's shied from over the years i'm to other one other thing i would just point out about. All of these justices ann at a little chance to have a shout out to an early member of the trump administration. That was first general. Counsel don mcgann. He had a big role in of these initial appointments. And i remember talking to him. And in addition to to making sure he judges that were Textualist mentioned There was a huge emphasis on getting younger candidates. Ones that would indeed be on the courts for many decades to come but also ones that were experienced experts in administrative law And that rounds. Back to this whole argument we were talking about before about democrats tendencies to try to do everything through rulemaking rather than going through the legislature These judges guys like neil gorsuch have been Pretty skeptical of that particular things like the chevron doctrine which says you have to just give deference to administrative agencies and. I think that that could have any norma's impact in years to come on the size of the federal government and its powers so let's switch to the other side of the ledger. What went awry and It seems to me that some of the biggest failures of the past four years have been related to trump the person and his volatility And just thinking. Back the bombshell tweets the staff turnover and then kicking. Good people as they go out the door those off the cuff covid briefings Including that moment where. The president was musing about the medical possibilities of disinfectants. The strange courtship of kim jong hoon And then finally build the the post-election meltdown telling his fans that he wanted to landslide And then culminating in that riot at the capitol on january six. Yeah angry entirely brought. I mean look. He's a little like nixon. When people said nixon was paranoid enemies were after him. They were after him but he didn't. He didn't help himself by giving them the ammunition to go after them..

"Republican party norms which were ordered an updated. You might say by the necessities of the cold war as the cold. War has faded. You're seeing a regression to the mean in the republican party which trump is not the cause of but merely an example of and so the old republicanism. Which would stood for a much more modest foreign policy for limits on immigration gauging immigration. By the capacity to americanize the immigrants limited taxes a constitutional conservatism constitutional limits on the legislature. All of these things including tariffs and a more trade policy and a national economic policy driven by national interests. All of this is very traditional in the republican party. And what you're saying Despite the excited crowd is of and others is to me really. Not that threatening accepted is threatening to the The washington consensus both in domestic and foreign policy as it has existed for the past generation. At least yasha we have two very different conceptions of reality and of the american constitution both in america and on this panel and appropriately enough. You wrote a piece in two thousand. Nineteen republicans don't understand democrats. Democrats don't understand. Republicans talking about that perception gaps that makes both sides unable to empathize with each other. How do you reconcile the argument. That charles just made namely that republicans are resurrecting the original constitution against on principle assaults by progressives and arguments like the one that you made repeatedly over the past four years including in two thousand. Sixteen where you talked about the interlocking reasons why our confidence in the system is naive and ways that our system of checks and balances has relatively few resources to stop an authoritarian president from violating the constitution. So like the hard question. I'm asking you so important as i. How do you reconcile the completely different views. One of the charleston. You have articulated. And how would you bridge this gap for our viewers. Well look i think. I would distinguish between two very different things. I think by some high level of education going on him. So one is that undoubtedly democrats and republicans have trouble understanding each other some very interesting public opinion research by more in common in this but essentially showed that when you ask democrats what kind of believes republicans have you know they caricature they think republicans would hate immigrants That they don't think any racial discrimination in the country and so on actually most republicans have reggie positive attitudes towards immigrants Immigration system at puffy recognized that the ongoing forms of racial injustice at the other way round. We asked republicans. About what kind of us democrats have. you know. They would faint Supporters who make excuses for political violence than on proud to be american for example. Actually a huge majority of democrats proud to be american project. Things like antiques. Oh so there is definitely sort of mutual incomprehension going on that also exists mole philosophical level. So i don't disagree of childhood as different notions of constitution The drive each side that leads to certain misunderstandings. And disagreements i think one example of this was when senator mike said but in fact amount has not aiming to democracy. It's a republican. You can have different views about how helpful clever applying bet is but it was spotted by a lot of left leaning media as a senator Sort of open admitting but he's anti-democratic but he wants to destroy the actual system was something like bad though simply misunderstanding of what he had said at Example of of of that kind of clash between different readings of the constitution and different vocabulary leading to a little bit of hyperventilation. So i don't disagree with that exists now was very putting out folk is that as ad said what. Donald trump has been up to for glass for years in what he has been up to in these past weeks should be a crying affront to either the to conception of constitution whether you believe we live in a democracy public whether you saying that the anti-democratic of account majoritarian elements of the constitution. Like the senate a perfectly appropriate whether you think that's problematic. I've you should believe in the peaceful transfer of power. I have a way you should believe that it's very important not to undermine the trust the people have in the election system. I've away you should think that a sitting president should not say that those massive voter fraud by being able to offer any of evidence of for that feces. I've away you should say that. The president going on about how his opponent should be locked up committing crimes. In an unsubstantiated way is exactly the kind of behavior doomed Republics that had been attempted before foundation of ours and that the founding fathers was so worried about when they road not just the constitution but when we modeled a set of behaviors in a set of new orleans. They hoped would put us on a more stable pop so to yes. We have different notions of Operating with yes. That's a lot of mutual Incomprehension but to spin that into an excuse for the kind of behavior we have seen from the outgoing president of last week's takes a little bit of by david as someone who favors. gop senate oppose president trump. your perhaps uniquely well situated to help translate each side to the other so put us in the shoes of the seventy percent of republicans who believe that the election was rigged and also the republican senators. Who are supporting the president's claiming and then as you think about the way forward. I am always struck by how difficult it is to persuade people who disagree with you about policy at the same time. It is possible to have civil debates about the meaning of the constitution as we find every day at the constitution center host precisely debates between liberals and conservatives. Is that one way that both sides can debate productively basically not not just setting the policy disagreements aside and focusing on the constitutional disagreements or do you have other suggestions for productive discussion moving forward. Well it's it's frankly hard. It's as a practical basis on a mass scale. It's really hard you know through the big sort. We increasingly live around people of like mind as we live around. People of like mind reinforcer owned by season. We grow more extreme. We channel our interests into the media. That reinforces all of those trends. So you know the way. I've put it to people who i live in a precinct that went almost seventy percent for for trump. I think in the last in in two thousand sixteen. I lived in more rural precinct and it went seventy two percent for trump. My friends my neighbors. They support trump. And one thing that i say.

It's interesting that trump basically gave life to every criticism of me and Obama like everything they said about the Iran deal everything about Paris everything's, of Cuba, opening will they got to do whatever they wanted right and so so you know the trump presidency is the manifestation of by worst nightmare sense like think of your worst troll in life becomes the president states right and they're. Very Determined I. Mean Not all my trolls I. Think are determined. They're not fixated on me enough that they would want to just reverse everything I've gone from the color of my drapes to you know my hairstyle but because of trump's fixation on Obama as his white whale, he did want to reverse everything. So don't do stupid shit becomes. Let's see what is it again reversing it do stupid Shit as possible. Exactly. Max Out on the stupid shit and then also reverse the Iran deal because it has Obama's name on it and so on I agree with you. If you know I think I tweeted one time like one thing we have learned from this time have been the virtues of the Iran deal now that we're without it that was accomplishing a lot in. The region since since two thousand sixteen did you expect the deal to to really follow park has had some support on the right and I think at the very beginning of trump you might have thought he's got his eye focused on the southern border or these other things that he'd really run on an inspite of the Michael Flynn commitment to stamping out radical Islamic terrorism they. Maybe wouldn't do this take away the Iran deal. How did that evolve for you when you saw must really going down well so when when Flynn got ousted after fifteen days, there was about a year when McMaster was the national skirt advisor Mattis's at defense were they were clearly doing everything they could to save the Iran deal. They didn't want the risk of leaving which by the way was ironic because mattis is critical of the Rondo on came out it just shows you when you're. Actually empower, you might prefer to have an arms control agreement place. Yeah. So I actually thought there was a fighting chance of the thing could survive, but to trump, it was interesting how the Iran deal was. So central to just kind of their narrative about Obama and his foreign policy and his weakness in his coddling of quote unquote radical Islam. You could tell the trump wasn't going to give it up and then John Bolton became national skirt advisor. The thing is toast. Of. What's been interesting in watching it play out is the arguments that we made that they called dishonest at the time were essentially that it's either this deal or the Iranians advanced their program. If you leave the deal, you're going to strengthen the hardliners in Iran and you're going to risk war and. Literally all those all arguments that they said were so dishonest and said, I can constructed a totally fake echo chamber to make those arguments, but they've all happened. Iran is restarted its nuclear program. The hardliners are clearly in charge there..

"Money can be withdrawn tax free in the future because obviously governments are spending a of money to deal with this cova crisis and we don't know what taxes are going to be in the future but there seems to be a higher probability that taxes would need to increase the pay for all of this this year I'm just going to try to diversify my texts advantage accounts bit more and put some more money into the Roth side of. Things I'm also thinking differently about travel rewards. So if you've read my article articles, you know that I was building up a big stash of miles and points. So that the next time there's a big stock market crash I could use all of those Muslim points to travel while being fund was much cash into the down market is I could well, I didn't expect that the crash would come with a global pandemic, which means that we can't travel anyway. So that's been interesting. Because that sort of foiled my plan to use all this points. So I started getting a little bit worried about having huge balances in those programs because airlines are struggling at the moment hotels struggling credit card companies are likely struggling. So having a million points scattered across different programs was a bit risky for me at this stage. So I've actually started using some of this points to pay for groceries which I am surprised about myself, but the deal was too good to pass up. So I recently found out that, I can use my chase points to. Grocery bills off of my credit card statement and normally that's not really a great redemption. But since I have a chase Sapphire reserve card I was able to get one point five cents per point, which is a decent redemption. It's not amazing but it's decent and the fact that that's same card was giving me five points per dollar at grocery stores for the whole pandemic that. Means I was able to get seven point five percent off of my grocery bill, which was pretty much expense during the three months of lockdown. So it turned out to be a great deal. It's allowed me to get through some of my points and lower my point balances a bit more, and it's also saved us some money so that if the market does decrease again, we'll have. More cash to put into it. If you're interested in learning more about the card that is definitely been my Go-to card for the last three or four years ever since I came out I hopped onto soon as it came out and it was amazing for travel. But like I said, it's been great for groceries and stuff to during the pandemic. So if you're interested to learn more. About that.

Was it supposed a wasn't I didn't mean for it to get that that deep but but I think that's kind of how our our conversations. Leave Rabbit Hole Oh. Yeah and and hopefully tangents and hopefully episodes are not going to be a full hour. Long I'm going to follow the advice of the the great What I like to call indirect podcast mentor that I've had for the last six almost seven years, Mr Daniel J, Lewis L., and The perfectly of an episode is as long as it needs to be. That's right. So on that note. I think we're going to wrap it up won't go what if No good. No I. The. Internet still out some. So's my brain. I was trying to think of a way to. Have people weigh in on this bill thing oh? Yes. Maybe that would be a good First topic of you know, what? What are your guys thoughts on On submission and respect in a relationship. Yeah yellows do that. So here's here's a couple of things you can do as we shut this episode down. This felt really good i. just let me just say that it felt a little like. Didn't feel quite so natural. Conversation like there's something in me that link. Okay. Now I've got turn my radio voice when I put headphones on and microphones in front of my face funny thing is I'm much more comfortable that it's different like if we're just sitting on the couch having a deep conversation or laying in our bed before we go to sleep at night like it's just those are the moments where I wish we could do this like just put the headphones on in the microphone right there they think we. Did that and it doesn't work. Great sorry. But here's the thing The whole. The whole point of this show is not just for windy night or talk and and you know be goofy or whatever. Yes. That's a big part of it. Cat. You touch my headphone cord and I will eat you alive. She likes to chew on expensive. And that's what we have here. So here's the thing..

"But like I think we now would explain it because I mean, it was a lot like that but is more of a legalistic lake. There were rules that were to be followed based on biblical principles. made out has also military. So I think that that kind of had a little bit to play with it like it was very strict. I grew up in a very strict house like I mean not so strict where like I couldn't wear pants strict. You definitely wore pants I definitely wear pants. I meant. What attracted me to you is the fact that you didn't wear pants. Open. I'm kidding oh getting Others upon him. Gosh. No but it was it was a strict house. So I mean like we didn't have to wear dresses all the time. We didn't have to cover our heads how some women do like. It was like you said, is legalistic like we look down on people who who didn't go to church and I mean like that. That was. At the time I didn't know any different. You know that was just that was how we grew up. All I knew is that I wasn't allowed to wear makeup outside the house. I didn't. I wasn't allowed to do this. I wasn't allowed to listen to that kind of music I wasn't. You know there were a lot of things that I just I couldn't do because we went to church you know and. It was a lot I mean. I don't know Bash on my on my dad. My family that was non. Early. GROWING UP I saw lot of bill. In not not just my family but the families that we were around. Yeah I had One of my one of my friends growing up her dad was bill. And her mom. Thought that being submissive meant that she just had to listen to every single thing that her husband said and she had no opinion. She. She was not a person and I don't agree with that I feel like that is very demeaning that that post that you shared it's very demeaning toward women meaning that women only serve one function and that's either for you to get off for you to get fed or for your kids to be taken care of. And I. I don't agree with that. And that was I mean not saying that you did. Not Get a right hand that was that was. It was it was meant to be funny. And and generally the depot right. But the generally those those those questions are used in a humorous way. I don't want anybody to take offense to it. I mean here's the thing I don't see anything wrong with I mean, the Bible says to be submissive to your husband. But. What. What how I feel is you know what? I have no problem being submissive to you. But? For me to be submissive to you, there needs to be respect to give him back and that that did not pose to me as he was being respectful to his wife rain. So. It's just like. With anything if you don't give respect, you're not going to get it back and I think that maybe that's his problem. The he he's not getting any respect from his wife but you WANNA know why bill because you're not giving respect. You're not showing your wife that she is loved more than anything else. You're not showing her that that you know she is prized in your is above everybody else you're just expecting from her and. obviously, I feel that that's not right well, and part of the reason I brought it up because I was I remember I was going through Yahoo and looking for questions that we could be funny and. and..

Just as a forewarning, don't I listened to some crude stuff I'm a horrible human being and probably need to go see a priest and. Be Forgiven. Anyway.

They're friends and but they've decided you ruined asks for all other people. but they've? They decided. Really, probably last year the year before that, they wanted to sell the house that we live in right now right because there's just too much of a burden to have to pay and just giving taking care of the roof knees redone and things like that, and we seriously thought about buying it but it only has two bedrooms right now with two girls chew bedrooms would put us out of a bedroom. Because this, they're they're at the point where like you were saying they, they have different interests and. Different maturity levels, right. Well, that puts them at odds quite a bit..

I don't have any bad feelings about it I just I'm frustrated with myself because it's taken this long it's now April as we record this episode it's four months for me to go.

Come in the bathroom for ten minutes. They're fine. We we. Did. Know, we have lots and lots of attitude from the ten year old. She's quite spunky. Though I mean I mean I have to say that I'm obligated to say that I think it's it's in the parent code is in like a contract like the release forms. Spill See I think that's why see that's why we should have had kids at home. Well, I think that's why might have the last asking to be home. So so there's no contract there like we can treat these kids however we want. I don't know So yeah. Grace is ten now. Grace yes and not greasy. Gracie she'll probably always be my gracie.
