So we had to chat about what it all means and Dr Lex Brown James is back with us to join the conversation. Dr lex is an Amazon bestselling author of these are my is this is my nose. This is my vulva. These are my toes and is a licensed marriage and family therapist in a certifies sexuality educator supervisor. When not in therapy she contracts with organizations regarding reproductive justice and accessible comprehensive. In Anti Oppressive Sexuality Education. Dr Lexin I, chatted about the stereotypes that are often invoked in commentary about black. Women's sexuality. The. Importance of agency in sexual liberation. How. Respectability politics are used to shame black women and how we can unpack our own shame around sexuality to encourage healthier attitude towards sexuality for our children. If anything resumes with you all join this episode. Please share with us on social media using the HASHTAG. TB In session. Here's our conversation. Thank you so much for joining us again today Dr Legs. Thank you for having back I. Love it here. We, are always happy to have you back. I really use you slide into my deals like, Hey, you know we talk about this. You created the perfect platform. So, tell me likes what was your initial reaction to the visuals as well as audio. In my chest, my reactions were. Still. Got It. That's what I thought initially like I could drop down get back up and I didn't out nor did I di- I was really proud of myself. Out of that. And it was so free nervous. The nineties Misao Josiah, I, grew up in Atlanta I grew up in college park. So here in Franks key on the radio was normal and regular everyone was like look at this homage homage and that was unexpected and then all the commentary and it's all based on this over sexualization of women and I was like, okay let's see the skull but everybody only defaulted to the over sexualization of the black woman based on this. Stereotype. The stereotype is the idea that. Lack, women typically our class figured lighter skin and with some tape of nine kinky hair, the the the Mulatto type woman is sexually overt and think a Karma Jones right. So Carmen in that movie would be the idea of a jazz about but people forget the conversation where. Black women and their relation also centralized as mammy. So fat dark skinned black women who have kinky hair who are considered not necessarily sexual, right? Because they're not the Jacksonville and yet they reproduce and take care of children. They are the form other four People Gov as the Welfare Queen, they're having tax they're producing but certainly seen as very sexual, and then there's also the Sapphire and the Sapphire is comes from and Andy rate in it's considered that kind of ball buster type woman who is like all well, you can't handle me and. Attitudinal and maybe like a clair huxtable, I will tell you when we will be together in this way and then there's the superwoman. So the Black Superwoman, this idea that women can make a dollar out of fifteen cents, take your communities in their children and their partners and their job and every. Old In an amazing and they're never exhausted or tired always pleasant attitude and the considered asexual right because there are so strong and they don't even need sex and nobody's willing to really them because they don't need have this. Physical pleasure or satisfaction lives. All of these other stereotypes? The only one that people went to focus on was the jets as I pigeonholing. So what do you think that is do you think that people aren't even aware of all these other stereotypes? Be Aware but I don't think that their sexuality is as amped up and I think that a black woman in charge of her own sexual pleasure is scary for some folks. We have a lot of shame I was personally told as a child to call maybe China pocketbook Zionist, governor. Yeah You keep your pocketbook close and you keep it off the floor. Right those are the two things you learned and I was like. That's interesting. Why would it ever be on the floor but the idea that if you had his own sexual pleasure, your type of Ho, your some type of one time and. over-centralised homequote not wifey material right and so I don't think the other ones get as much play because they are somewhat more acceptable.
DNC Announces Convention Speakers, Speculation On Biden's VP Pick Intensifies
"Of scheduled speakers at next week's Democratic National Convention is out, and it's being parsed for clues as to who's still in the running to be Joe Biden's running mate. He's expected to make that announcement any day now. Meanwhile, President Trump is floating the idea of accepting the Republican nomination later this month on Sacred ground. The Gettysburg Battlefield. NPR national political correspondent Mara Liasson is watching it all. And Mara. You know, some names in the running to be Biden's running mate are scheduled to speak, but not in the VP slot, you know, and I'm just wondering if that's a fool's errand to try to make that meaningful, You know? What do you think about that? And who do you think at this point is thumb Where are may be the most likely candidates. I think the most likely candidates are still that same handful of women, you know, Joe Biden said. He's going to take a woman whether it's Kamala Harris, Susan Rice, Gretchen Whitmer, Karen Bass. Those are the people who have been on the list for quite some time. And and, of course, Gretchen Whitmer is the only white female on that short list. But I think the list has remained the same. Sounds like he's about to make his decision because the vetting committee has pretty much disbanded on DH. It could be as early as today that we find out So what do you think for everybody who's sitting home, you know, got all the names and the lists on whiteboards and, you know, trying to, you know, look at those tea leaves. And should we be looking at the List of speakers. Oh, I think that that that is actually fool's errand, but it's fun and it's going to be over very soon. It could be over today, so go ahead. But I still think you know that of all my conversations with Democrats all signs Seemed to point to Kamala Harris. But with the caveat that Joe Biden hasn't decided, and he often takes his time deciding well, 100 prominent black men signed a letter. Hoping they could make him decide that it would be a black woman because they said to him, you will lose the election. If you don't choose a black woman as a running mate, and this was entertainers, pastors, business leaders, athletes. I'm wondering more. If you think that Biden really needed that public pressure, it would seem in this moment in time. That's the choice. He'd want. Make one of these in class. That's what I think. I think that letter was really aimed. And Gretchen Whitmer. She's the only white person on that list. Everyone else is a person of color or black woman. So I don't think he needed that kind of public pressure. But it does show you that of all the people on the list. There is a backlash brewing to at least one of them in that's Gretchen Whitmer. You haven't seen the same kind of opposition public opposition to Kamala Harris, for instance. Oh, by the way, you're saying Elizabeth Warren is not in the running and I don't think so. Yeah, No, I don't think so, although she's a thought leader in the party, and she certainly has influenced a tremendous amount of his agenda. Of the Democratic National Convention will be all online this year. Wouldn't does that mean for the post convention bounce that the candidates look for Hillary Clinton got well, first of all, who knows Because nobody's ever run a presidential campaign in a pandemic. But most people I talked to assume that the post convention bounce will be very small thiss year for both candidates because they're not having the kind of big Excitement filled crowded conventions like we have in the past that being said the Democrats have had a lot longer time to plan for a virtual convention than the Republicans because they've been scaling. There's back for months. And the big question is, are they about to produce the best four night television show ever seen in history? Or will it kind of be ho hum? Well, and they will be competing in that arena with a president who is obviously trying to make the best television show. What do you make of that tweet that he may accept the Republican Nomination for president from the Gettysburg Battlefield or the White House. Both locations likely to violate ethics rules or just some people's moral sense of what's right to politicize. But you know, this is a president that gave an interview to Fox News inside the Lincoln Memorial, gave an interview at Normandy. What do you think happens here? Will certainly Trump isn't worried about offending people sense of what's right or wrong or any kind of norm. Now there are legal questions. Ethical questions about what kind of federal property you can make a convention nominating speech, your acceptance speech on and I'm sure the White House lawyers will be figuring that out. Is there some part of Gettysburg that he could be on? Without violating ethics rules. It's certainly a lot easier for the president to set this up at the White House, but he's clearly looking for the kind of dramatic backdrop not unlike Mount Rushmore that would give his campaign a boost. Quick thought from you, Mara on the fact that it's been primary season. It's primary day today for six states. The focuses on Minnesota, where the Denver Democrat, the representative Ilhan Omar, Is facing a tough challenge. Other progressive candidates have done very well this primary season. What will you be looking for here, right. She's the only member of the squad left with the primary. The four young progressive women of color and she has a really stiff challenge from an attorney named Anton Melton, Mo. He's getting a lot of money. There's been a certain amount of unhappiness with her. They've been attacks on her first for allegedly making anti Semitic statements. We know that the other members of the squad have not had primary challenges. Rashida to leave beat hers back very handily. So that's what we're watching today for the Democrats. Well, how does he do? Right and very briefly. The unemployed have now gone over a week. Without that additional money from the federal government. The president signed those actions and directives to address this. White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow says the money will go out in two weeks. But he doesn't have The power of the purse. Congress does and they're gone. They're out of session. I think everyone's taking a big political risk here for the president to sign these executive orders and then have people not get a bigger unemployment check or still face eviction. I think that that he will be responsible for that and then members of Congress, including the Democrats, they are allowing people to go without thes unemployment checks, which, by the way, have kept the economy going in large part On Then they have stopped negotiating. Good. Not good. Not good. Yeah. NPR national political correspond. Mara Liasson. Thank you. Thank you.
Beyoncé Releases "Black Is King" Visual Album on Disney+
"Has to start with Beyonce. Indeed, I've seen a few minutes of her new visual album is called Black Is King. She released it yesterday on Disney Plus It's a 90 minute film manned the whole idea, I guess is it's her re imagination of the Lion King. And what she says is that her hope is that it shifts the global perception of the word black, which has always meant inspiration and love and strength and beauty to me. But black is king means Black is regal and rich in history, in purpose and in language. The Part that I've seen so far. I mean, it is absolutely breathtakingly beautiful. It is. I don't know is it was shot. Use it. I don't tell you I have inside is just music. And is there anyone else in? It isn't just heard. There's no no, no, no, no. There's all kinds of people in. It was this pre pandemic that she had made this I was here on that either. Sure, if it was pre Pim friend pandemic, she said it began in her backyard and then went on from there. But this is a major production. Okay, Blue Ivy is in it. And apparently one of the twins is for a minute. I don't know. Okay. The fashion wardrobe from her longtime wardrobe curator, Zarina Acres is the one who Has done all of this work there a thing. There's also a ah Valentino ho couture leopard jumpsuit. There are the The hairstyles are unbelievable. How about the bedazzled eyebrow jewelry? Yes. And she also wears a pair of glasses that are all pearls. I don't think you're supposed to see through them, but they're all pearls it not just the rim. The entirety. Of course. Why? Why would you need to see anything? I I I can't imagine how long it took to do this. The few songs I heard were good. Um, but The song's almost seem Superfluous because it's it's the I don't know where this wass it looks like it's Africa. Maybe it was because they have a lot of African culture in it. But
Big tech CEOs testify before Congress
"So, this hearing just going to say it, it was six hours of chaos. So. So many things like individual moments of pure chaos happened this hearing. But because every member of Congress was only given five minutes to ask the questions in and they moved on, no one could process the moments of cash. So here are some things that happened during this hearing. Jeff. bezos just started eating nuts on his call. That was just a thing that you started snacking for the first ninety minutes. It appears that basis had tech issues was operating in some kind of delay. So we didn't hear from him. They just answer any questions and they'd take a ten minute break Jeff. bezos could fix his computer. Amazing. Jim Jordan, who McKenna pointed out. On the show last week is always sort of chaos element. Try to talk over several members of Congress got yelled to put his mass back on floated. Just elaborate conspiracy theories. was when I say was chaos I. Don't know if there's any other way to describe it. I. Think that led a lot of people to think the hearing itself didn't accomplish its goals, but I think in many ways it did. But Kennedy you WanNa Kinda go through what the committee was trying to accomplish the themes they were pointed at in. How hearing played out, right. So okay. First off. Harkening back to last week I mentioned Jim. Jordan's mountain dew obsession. Definitely drink a handful those throughout the hearing I took notes in screen shots. So, I, called it. But regardless of their pores soda choices, there were a lot of lawmakers who definitely did their homework and I think that was really apparent throughout the entire hearing and when I look at. The picture that they tried to paint I think that became really clear in chairman Sicily's opening statements. So this is the guy who liked. And spearheaded the entire investigation from the beginning, and in those opening statements, he pointed out that yeah Apple Amazon Google facebook. There are different in a lot of ways and they exhibit anticompetitive behaviors potentially allegedly and a lot of different ways. But what they tried to pull together and was a story, and it's really hard to tell a story and five minute fragments. But what happened yesterday was Sicily. Ni, and a lot of the Democrats on the Committee wanted to point out that these companies they become bottlenecks for distribution whether that's information or just like APP stores marketplace's they control what gets distributed in how what was really key to the investigation was how? How they survey competitors. If you have so much control dominance over a market or a specific part of the tech industry, you have a lot of insight into your competitors and you can do a lot of dangerous things with that, and then lastly, after that dominance has gained, it's how they abuse it. Right? How they abuse it to make harder for small businesses in competitors and I think that's exactly what Cellini pointed out in the beginning and I think they did a poor job that storytelling throughout the process. But I think that's also our job. Right is to pull that evidence together and tell that story for them in a way that isn't like. Yes, no yelling at CEOS and like stopping them and I think by getting that in the evidentiary record doing all this questioning, I think they really did achieve their goal in the end. Yeah. I mean, I think the thing that happened sort of next to the hearing was that they released a bunch of documents from these one point, three, million documents of clutch. Over the past year, they released pretty targeted selection documents for every company showing some of this stuff, Casey, I wrote a story about. facebook. INSTAGRAM. My I'm going to frame this email or mark Zuckerberg. Literally one sentence, no period. The Andrew says I need to figure out. I'M GONNA buy instagram like I would love to just be in a place were sending that email like super casually like I got this thing to figure out and it's not like am I gonNa buy the model of the car. It's like instagram. I've been thinking of the text messages where so and so says that Mark Zuckerberg's didn't go destroy mode on instagram ever since they got that up. Case she this to Kevin and right that text was. Yes. Well, it was Kevin. System was talking to an investor and Kevin said to the investor. If we don't sell well, mark, go into destroy mode on us and the investor side probably. Of course, stray casual. So there's just a lot of documents and I think one of the functions of hearing was to get those documents into the official congressional record to make the CEO's account for them. That did not seem very successful to me. Is like a takeaway people should have from this hearing, right? No. I think a lot of people that go into these hearings are expecting like these big Gotcha moments and expecting like a lot of news and all this stuff. But it really, it wasn't oversight hearing. You know it wasn't. They didn't come. They came at this like in a report last earlier this week that they came out at as investigators. They didn't come at it to make a big show horse and pony show out of it, and yet I think the CEO's didn't. The record well enough to the extent that they could have. But there was definitely, I was expecting them to do a lot less evasion and I expected a lot less room probation with the documents, but it's just the process of a Congressional hearing. It's. It's hard to do that in a congressional hearing. But if you put those documents out there, you get the CEO's on the record a little bit who does excite this excites the FTC. J, and that's who can take this next and then it's also congress. You know they can't break up a tech company, but they can regulate going forward and it's those three key themes that I pointed out earlier that they could regulate. You know what I mean. They could legislate to forbid companies from surveying competitors and things like that, and that's where this goes. So the format of the hearing, every member and five minute chunks, it seemed very clear that the Democrats had some sort of coordinated evidentiary strategy, they would start and. And they would say, I, want to read this email to you. What did you mean by this email and then Jeff bezos would say something like I have. No idea is on works. I. Was real pattern that developed was basis really not doing or claiming he definitely knows claiming not really no way Wayne is under the thing they did or they would ask sooner Pichai about the very granular add deal google made by an ad product, and soon I, would say I'll get back to you, which is basically all responses. So the Democrats seemed like they were coordinated to move through their documents. The Republicans seem to be doing something else that also seem coordinated intentional, but what was their focus because that seemed clear split my takeaway from Jim Jordan who? We got into earlier, he he was interviewing. As if they were all Jack Dorsey. And as we talked about like, yeah, he invited Jack Dorsey to testify, but he doesn't sit on the antidote subcommittees. Anything. He says, it just doesn't matter. So it sounded to me as if he prepared questions Jack Dorsey and then it was like, oh, he's not coming I'll ask Tim Cook the same questions. Another completely crazy moment that happened just seen by and five minute chunks is that. Represented Sensenbrenner from Wisconsin Dear Sweet Wisconsin. Definitely. Asked Mark Zuckerberg why the Donald Junior was banned from twitter and mark. Zuckerberg was happening on twitter facebook and there was just like a moment of confused silence, and then he tried to move on and that just sort of floated by in the river of chaos to tell you how much chaos there was kneeling. When you started to tell that story, I thought you were going to tell the story about when Jim Jordan asked him cook if the famous one, thousand, nine, hundred, four, Apple Super Bowl, AD was actually about twenty twenty cancel culture, which is another thing that really happened. I think that's out of context. He didn't ask him. He said clearly, this is. That's definitely what Steve Jobs was thinking IBM is canceled culture and Apple's going to break it with hammer and Jeff. Bezos said that social media is a nuance destruction machine and all this crazy stuff from that. It was a wild will that that particular question when Jim Jordan asked, do you support the cancel culture mov, you could see the CEOS like. 'cause they went in order. He asks them all in order. So First Tim Cook just like basically muttered nothing. Here's like I don't. I support speech whatever. The iphone a keyboard like that was his answer. Sooner per child also, just like muttered, right? He's like Google has always supported free expression Zuckerberg like saw the opportunity and took it and the forces of liberalism I rising I, and then basis was like I cannot. I cannot do in like went for it, and that was just totally insane moment. But it also seems like the Republicans were intentional to try to create their own moments where they were yelling at CEOS about bias on platforms is obviously something cover a. At. You were paying a lot of attention that case you're paying a lot of attention to it. Do you think that was effective in creating because you know there's like a parallel conservative Universe Jim? Jordan was on Tucker. Carlson. Last night like was that effective or d think that the CEO's were able to sort of tamp down on interesting the Tucker Carlson pointed out that Google and other companies are all big donors to Jim Jordan another folks. So that is a weird side, but I think it was actually besides the moment where they mixed up twitter with facebook I. Think this was much more effective off. Off Topic yelling about technology than we usually see like are genuinely issues that like they are upset about that, they could point to largely around like cove nineteen misinformation and they could at least like pick those topics and stick to them rather than kind of asking vague questions about like, why is my phone listening to me? Well, they're definitely asked questions about why are my campaign emails getting filtered by G mail? Yes. I should. I should mention that they have really and they have all of these cases where they ask about extremely specific one off incidents that anyone who has used social media knows happens constantly. And, then turn them into a sinister pattern. But I think they managed to come off as sounding more like they understood what they were talking about the unusual. I think that was a real theme of the hearing, Casey. What did you think of this sort of bias side show that occurred? Well, I mean the the idea that conservative voices are being suppressed is foundational to the conservative movement and is behind the rise of conservative talk radio. It was behind the rise of Fox News. Now that social media exists, we have seen it in this new form, but it is sort of being presented as extra, sinister and worthy of. Some sort of legislative intervention what frustrates me about it is that much more than newspapers or or cable news like Mark Zuckerberg Dorsey. These people benefit hugely from having all possible voices on their platform. None of them is incentivized to drive conservatives off their platform. What they are incentivized to do is have rules that make the place safe and welcoming. So that people want to hang out there and so to the extent that there are issues on the platform, they've largely come because these platforms have rules. And you know you would think that a bunch of free marketeers would realize that the alternative to the system that they're so mad about would be creating a new system, but they don't seem at all interested in doing that. So I just sort of dismissed all of them as charlatans I actually thought it was interesting that the opposite track came up, which was the Stop Hey for profit campaign I kind of wasn't expecting that. The representative Raskin I believe asked facebook. Basically, why aren't you kicking more hate speech off. I forget who else asked like look is the point that you're so big. You don't care about advertiser boycotts I. Mean, you know it will here. Here is a fact that the number one complaint that facebook gets from its users, the thing that users. About. FACEBOOK is that it removes too much content and so if you're running the place, you do have to take these complaints seriously in a way. Right? It might not be you know that you shadow band conservative whatever that even means on social network in twenty twenty. But the fact that you're removing content is really upsetting people. So you can't dismiss that idea entirely, but I still don't feel like we're having that intellectually honest conversation about it. So this was definitely I feel like you can connect the you control distribution. We're GONNA show the abuses of power narrative. We got other. Democrats. With the you control distribution. You're banning conservatives right like I. Think what's Sensenbrenner Again, cups and conservatives are consumers to is that people don't realize that like fifty percent of the population in many ways. But facebook has like famous conservatives working its highest levels Kevin. We last week, we're talking about Kevin Roose keeps sharing the list. List of the most engaged content from crowd tangle. It's all conservative content, and that's so problematic for facebook that they're. They're pushing back with other metrics and graphs of their own, making the facts just aren't there, but it doesn't seem to be convincing. Brett Kevin is being asked to recuse himself from facebook case because he's like best friends with facebook I, AP I wrote a column almost two years ago. Now, arguing that conservatives were trying to redefine. Any conservative identified person having any unwanted outcome on a social network, right? So bias is your name was higher than mine in search results. Bias is used suggested that I follow a Democrat and not a Republican right, and if you take action on your policies that apply to everyone against me a conservative that is biased against conservatives, right. So and by the way I have to say this has been hugely successful because we've talked about it. How many minutes now and the longer that these discussions. Discussions. Go on. They just sort of refi people's minds. The idea that there really is a vast conspiracy to silence conservative speech because he's networks are so big millions of conservatives are having experiences like this every day, and now there is an ideology that is basically a religion for them to attach to, which is although Silicon Valley liberals are out to get. Reason I wanted to talk about the conservative side show, which in many ways was a circus is it feels like the notion that we should be punitive to the companies or mad at the company's. Bipartisan, right we were. We were not looking at a hearing where the Democrats were on the attack. Republicans are saying we love. Apple. We're looking at hearing where they were. Everyone was mad. There are a couple of exceptions to that. There were a couple of I think sensenbrenner and a few other folks were like look we want to be clear. Big is not bad. We just WANNA make sure we're not punishing you for your success, but you were like almost entirely, right? Yeah. I. Mean I. think that's it's important to. To capture that mood like Jeff Bezos Mark Zuckerberg, Tim, Cook soon. Darpa, try they usually get to finish whatever sentence they start saying. Right. They're not used to being interrupted. Their thoughts are usually like you know they get to live in complete sentences and people take them seriously here in five in intervals, they were interrupted almost every time they started speaking to be told that they were wrong that they were filibuster at one point Sicily said stop thinking is for the questions. We can just assume they're all good questions. They. Were getting yelled at and they're going yell that about a variety of things that were pretty specific. So you kind of in your kind of structure here. The first one was controlling distribution. What did you hear as a hearing went on the indicated to that? The committee had a case here? I think the apple's APP store is one thing you know charging thirty percent cuts on certain things is just controlling an APP store. It's the same thing with Amazon's marketplace. They can inherently in control what gets placed and what gets sold and you know if they want to play with search results on Amazon, they can do that, and then on facebook and Google, it's not just like products and software that's information. And it could be information when it's like Google. Google. Stealing yelps, texture views right in putting those in its little info boxes in search queries in facebook if facebook is just like an. Mation, distribution platform and. It can decide Algorithm Mickley. Knowingly. What people get to see this bution was very keen to the committee's hearing yesterday and they pointed out different aspects in which you know each company exhibited that kind of behavior. So the one that will you bring up apple? We wrote about this, say there's much emails. Apples document production is just one hundred and thirty pages of unrelated emails and whatever order see it's like scan through it. So there's a lot of little stories in there. There's one about right to repair and apple realizing it needed to repair. By watching PR people operate by reading their emails journalists. Very entertaining. They're like we had a break like here's our strategy. Here's we're GONNA. That's all in there. You can look at it, but there's a lot about the APP store itself and how they're going to use the mechanics of the APP store to control their platform, and it started at the beginning like the first emails in this production from twenty, ten there. From Phil, Schiller Steve Jobs saying, are we GONNA? Let Amazon Sell Books in the kindle store. Store, it felt like I saw an Amazon ad was hard to watch this hard to watch this ad where a person's reading a book on an iphone in the kindle APP in the pick up an android phone keep reading. He's like literally like it was hard to watch like Schiller's at home like pain what a customer is having an experience that good it really just. Heart and so he's like it was hard to watch. You fours Steve Jobs. They're like we gotta shut it down jobs is the bookstore will be the only bookstore on the APP. Store. That's the way it's going to be everyone's gotta used to it. We know that restricting payments will hurt other things, but that's what we're doing and they started there in two thousand ten and they pulled it out, and then that ladders up into everything that we've seen with, hey, ladders up into the analysis group showing up to. Apple, can pay them to say that there's independent study has revealed. Everybody has a thirty percent cut. It has landed up into Tim Cook, forwarding. He gets a letters from developers that are in this direction. It's like apples breaking my heart and he just like Ford's it. Tim, Cook forwards that email to filter credit eighty, just as thoughts like amazing like they are constantly thinking about the APP store as a mechanism of control for the platform in the leverage and other deals. So the other one was apple is this Amazon one which I have very mixed feelings on saying that this is bad or legal I'm curious for all of your thoughts famously. Did, not have the prime video APP on the Apple TV and all these other places apple, Amazon came to a deal. There's an entire presentation in this production like the slide deck of how the deal is going to work. Apple got to be the preferred seller of its own product. So third parties cancel. Apple. Products, Amazon pages, they got. They have a custom by flow. They've custom product pages, all the stuff in return. Amazon got a lower commission on the APP store and gets to Selatan products which no. No like you can rent a movie from the Amazon APP on the Apple TV, no one else gets to it in one world. This is just pure platform collision, right? Apple cut VIP deal for big companies because it wanted something and you could say this is legal in another world. It's like this is how deals work apple something valuable. Amazon s something valuable and they came to a conclusion wherever made more money and quite frankly the consumer experience platform has got better. How do you read that? Casey? That is good and fair analysis of it. I. Think I did read slightly more scandalous. Tones into it in part because apple would never acknowledge that some developers are more important to it than others even though if you assume that that's true, I think maybe one of the things that's frustrating about it is there is no transparency accountability around which developers get sweetheart deals is that once you hit a certain threshold of revenue will cut your price. Why couldn't they extend that deal to everyone right? Or is it just if we withhold something that seems particularly valuable, we can eventually drag you to the table. Table, which is sort of what seems like happened here. I think in all cases, what I'm always looking for is the accountability, right like and some sense of of equitable treatment of developers and I understand the guys are always going to get the best treatment, but it can that be publicly visible. Can it be acknowledged and there'd be routes for others to achieve that same level of success and treatment, and that I'll just seems missing here. Did you buy Tim Co? He said it twice. It was obviously A. Glimmer, of sympathy for all four CEOS. There is a lot of reporting that they had spent months preparing for this hearing like being grilled there, they'd hire outside law firms. They. Practiced they all clearly had soundbites memorized in none of them. Got To say him because it kept getting interrupted. Tim Cook had this one where he is like if we're the gatekeepers, the gates are open wider than ever. We've gone from five hundred. APPS to one point seven, he said like. A whole speech. and. The thing is there's fierce competition for developers. They don't like our store can do for android the windows. For xbox and PS. Four. Which I was like the idea that adobe is going to be like we don't want to be on the IPAD. Here's PS. Four Photoshop is insanity to me. I'm going to build a spreadsheet. APP. For the five. That's how frustrated with Tim Cook. To that ring. True to you I. Mean, there's no, it does not ring true. There is a, there is a duopoly. In the United States when it comes to smartphones, iphones have majority share in the United States and you can't say, well, you know there's there's a rogue fork of android in Malaysia that you could go develop for if you really wanted to and have that come across as a credible argument to Americans. Right it is. Natural for any monopolist to spend most of its time, arguing that it is much smaller and much less consequential as as you think it is and they're essentially always asking you to ignore what is in front of your face, which is that they are the giant. They are in control. What they say goes, and it doesn't matter which small businesses get hurt along the. The. Way I would point out that the contact and we're gonNA talk about earnings eventually. But the context for that is apple had its biggest third quarter ever this month, their revenues went up eleven percent year over year, they're making obviously making billions of dollars in their services revenue, which is a lot of the narrative around the APP stores increasing that services line. Also went up. I think it was thirteen billion. So you're right. They're very big in their earnings the day after the hearing did nothing. To reduce that impression. I want to switch to Amazon a little bit McKenna. You really focused Amazon was basis first time up there. They came at him a lot about marketplace. How did you think that went I think it went pretty good. I. Think. John Paul specifically was just like killer her questions with breakout star. Yeah. She was just like killer and she's the representative for. SEATTLE. So this is where Amazon is right. So she just like killed it and. And I think there were a couple of instances in the documents and in questioning yesterday that really pulled important things out there was like testimony from one bookseller who was like, yeah. We just can't sell a category of books and we don't know why Amazon doesn't let us do that just like testimony like that or even when it comes to like acquisitions, the ring acquisition especially, I wrote about that today through the documents and how. They said, this is for market position. This is a for technology, your talent or anything. We just bought this and that's something that base said again, yesterday he was just very clear. It's like, yeah, we do buy things market position, which is like so insane just here like the richest person in the world. But like, yeah, we're buying market position. It's just what happens. That's another one I have mixed feelings right, and by the way, people should read McKenna story because those documents have just a very funny breakdown like the pros and cons of buying. Buying ring in many of the cons like what if this turns into nest, which if you're just the verge cast listeners like it's just like the Keyword Bingo, but it's fine to say, we're buying market position like this isn't the best product out there, but it's the category of video. doorbells is not huge, right? So to by the the market leader in video doorbells is maybe the most rational use of the money. What is the problem that you think the committee was trying to show an address sense of we're just going to market position. Pointing out, they can just do whatever they want and how casual it is, and there really isn't. It's really funny to read an email like that, and we could buy it or we could just copy it or are. We could just watch. You know that was one of the emails that base from someone. Those are just three options you know and it's like just pick and choose you know. Pointed out like a lot. Just that email itself really pointed out just how easy it is for them. They used a lot of that time history to talk about copycat behaviors and to talk about just like you know buying up competitors and it just seeing that all in one little e mail having to do with the ring was like really i. think it was really kind of I opening and especially like useful for the committee. So Amazon got hit a lot for the data collection side of it of copying competitors. bezos did not seem to have great answers there. Right. So that's the. The thing they got in trouble with this. There is that Wall Street. Journal article from like April where employees were literally like, yeah. We dip into data and we use that to guide our own private label products and everybody was like Whoa and Amazon basins. Yesterday said, well, we do have a policy that bans that but giant pointed out yesterday. It's like, okay. So what's your enforcement look like you can have the policy, but like if you don't enforce it, then it's like meaningless. And then yesterday I. Think Paul was like, can you give me a yes or no answer? Do you dip into data and he's like I can't I can't give you. Yes or no, and we're just like we're looking into it. The story had anonymous sources. So that isn't very helpful to us. You know what I mean. So that was one of the main things and that Wall Street Journal article and I think it's the same kind of examples in the committee's documents. They point out specific examples like car trunk, organizers of all things. It's like weird little products like Amazon's like this is a little hot. Maybe we should do that. So I, I think. I, think they made a good case yesterday. Yesterday on that. Yeah. I mean bezos brought up that Wall Street Journal, Article himself twice, and he was like, well, your policy against it. But I can't guarantee never happened. Then there is a strange just didn't come across clear I. Think I know what the committee was trying to get at their like US aggregate seller data when there's only three sellers and then only to sellers? Yes, I. Think what they're getting at is when you're down to the aggregate data of two companies, you heard effectively looking at individual data. What is the problem? They're like the I get what you're doing. You're just reducing the denominator to get to one, but like it, why is that particular problem? Right? Well, none of these. Dipping into individual seller data and looking at aggregate data. That's not a legal. There is no law. This is all voluntary of Amazon. So they have a voluntary policy where like we can't do individual seller data, but they say nothing against aggregate and aggregate what you're getting at eight. Here you is. Does the same thing if it's just like some goofy little product they. They bring up pop stock. It's all the time before pop tops in a moment. Right? There's only like one pop. So company like you know pop soggy, it was kind of an innovative product. It's like well, if there's only two of them and use the aggregate data, you you you have everything you need to know you know about that product line looking aggregate. If that's what you decide to qualify as do you as you're looking through the other Amazon documents and other stuff. So anything jump out at you is something the committee was trying to prove or get at. The questioning seemed very focused on. Like are you using the state at a copy products? Are you buying things? You shouldn't buy. There's one question which I did not understand why came up about DMC. Take downs on twitch and Jeff as just had this look of panic in his eyes. He's like I don't know man I bought Wedge because my kids want to. Do something like that was like the side show stuff, but the real focus here, it just seemed like it was definitely in the marketplace, right? Amazon, everyone came at Amazon for the marketplace. That's what everybody knows him as like they have all these little sides. They got rain. They got Alexa Alexa was one thing too. That was kind of interesting. It's like. Are you buying things like ring to put Alexa into and dislike expand your like Titan Ism as like an Internet Internet connected home. Thing and make that more closed off and walled gardening. That was one thing. But no, it was just focusing on how much power they have to kind of change. What happens in the marketplace to kind of decide what companies in what products are able to come up on the first page of results. You know that's also something that they dug into Google and in something that one of those like themes that kind of ties everything together. We should say they all spend a lot of time talking about counterfeit goods, and why is it Amazon removed? Fake stuff from the platform and how much is it profiting off of you know selling pick rolexes? Is it surprising? The whole foods didn't show up at all they're. Like that is a really massive thing. Amazon owns that. Is it moving into a huge new product category? I think whole foods is not an online marketplace, which was the title of the hearing, not that that restricted anybody from doing anything except that, one of the things Amazon says is we have lots of competition from offline marketplaces, right? Brought up kroger a lot I mean, this is the case he's point. They all made. It seem like they were beset at any moment. They could be crushed by the likes of stop and Shop Right? Like I think the point though was really on the. Digital. Experience Consumers have and like I, don't know Ho-. Foods fits. Into that narrative, especially, because it is itself not dominant like they bought it because you needed to grow in their. Good at that at my question for you on the Amazon stuff was when you think about, we talk about two thirty a lot right like you and I in particular spent a lot time to thirty, which regulates with the platform can do with content. There's not really an equivalent of two thirty for goods on store. Right like there's some case is out there saying like you're liable for what what happens on your online store page, but Amazon doesn't have that like second order of like Messi nece around it that twitter and facebook to with two thirty, I. Mean, it gets invoked a lot for marketplace's, but it's way messier. Well, I just wanted to like this question at counterfeits question about ranking the store like they are even more free than any twitter is to to sort tweets algorithm. Algorithm clear to modern like it just their store. Do you think that they're like that Algorithm transparency? Your wire things ranked. Did you catch a sense that that's where the regulation is GonNa go. So much of the conversation around Amazon really felt like it was individuals sellers being wronged for reasons of Amazon being unresponsive or stealing. It's data. So I don't know it didn't. It didn't seem like a really big focus of the hearing, but it is a huge deal. Yeah. The, digital marketplace frame of this, which is where we have talked to. Cellini. That's where he's going right like facebook and Google very digital. They have like they don't do physical goods. Really. Apple is the APP store. It's all digital goods. Amazon is the one where it's. Front to a lot of physical things, and that is the only place where I can see this regulation needing to make some sort of like major meaningful distinction in I. Didn't see it in the hearing, but I was curious of you caught a glimmer of it. I'm not positive that they have to make a huge distinction there like depending on what they come up with because. So much of this is about their companies and whatever product they produced. The issue is more or less whether or not they're being surveilled and unfairly by targeted and crushed by that data surveillance. All right. We have gone for forty minutes. We should take a quick break. I said I wasn't going to go by company and it happens. So we should come back and talk with facebook Ango. We'll be right back. This is advertiser content.

A concept is nothing new Sir Thomas more. I introduced the theory five hundred years ago. But we keep looking for that community identity stability of aldous Huxley's Utopia and not finding it Americans are the unhappiest they've been in decades, and we're increasingly lonely whereas in a utopia. Everyone belongs to everyone else. In nineteen forty-three, the psychologist Abraham. maslow's developed a theory of Utopia. One that allows total self determination in basic terms. maslow's theory says that in Utopia, we decide for ourselves, what we need and how we're GONNA get it in Huxley's Utopia citizens always get what they want and don't want what they can't get.

But digs into what is really going on underneath the surface, and that's what the weeds is all about I. Matthew Yglesias. Weeds podcast here on the box meeting podcast network. This is podcast for people who really want to understand the policy debates and policy issues that shaping our world. We've seen now more than ever like how relevant policy is to our actual lives, but so much in the news isn't focused on really understanding and explaining detail way if that sounds good to you, join us for the weeds, every Tuesday and Friday to find out what's going on why matters and what we can do about it. You could download the weeds on apple spotify or wherever else you get your podcasts. Tracy. When it comes to facebook I turn to you. FACEBOOK is patience consumer of startups as what we've learned. Yeah. But you said something to me yesterday was interesting, which is everyone else's problems are forward looking and it feels like facebook's problems are actually in the past break for people explain what you mean. Yeah. So when Congress is looking at any trust with respect to these four companies for three of them, it's It's sort of about the marketplaces that their operating right now with facebook, the question is much more about should we have allowed it to buy serum? Should we have allowed it to buy WHATSAPP and most of the antitrust conversation that was around facebook yesterday was all about that. What did Mark Zuckerberg know about Instagram, and when did he know it? We wrote a story based on some documents that the house released yesterday. In which facebook has clearly identified instagram as a competitor. In at least some ways and wants to go after it and knock it off the table, and so that's kind of where the focuses their facebook and Burke did get a lot of other questions yesterday, but it tended to be much more about content moderation and things that don't have a lot to do with antitrust. So there was weird section where they asked the face. Face Research APP in the novel, Vpn? Any kind of got lost well, explain what happened and I'm curious reactions. Yeah. So facebook has a bunch of nifty tech tools to figure out what's trending which APPs or the kids using, and so that can essentially have an early warning system if it needs to consider acquiring something or more likely in these days, go out clone it. and. So Zuckerberg was asked about the way that the company uses these systems and if they are anti competitive I, think you know traditional antitrust law probably would not say copying an APP feature is anti competitive, but could lobby written in the future about it shirt I. Think the one that caught me was I mean, this is what I'm. McKenna's points from earlier is like one of the themes here is, are you so dominant that you can collect data that's unfair and then use that to crush or killer competitors, and definitely bought the Inaba VPN to do it. That's true. Now, when I've asked executives at facebook about this, what they'll say is they don't get surprised anymore. When you have three point, one billion people using your apps around the world. You know what links they're sharing, you know what they're talking about. And so you're not going to need some kind of specialized tool to know that WHATSAPP is really taking off. Right. So they would argue that, yes, these tools were useful to them, but you know at their scale, they know what's popular now, which doesn't really seem like addresses, the problem is reached. The fact that we're so big that we're all knowing is maybe not the defense that they sometimes presented as so here's what I didn't get. I thought, Zuckerberg I want to the instagram. What's about who's issues, but on the facebook research front, the data front, they him about this APP facebook research, which you were giving to teens. They were deploying with an enterprise certificate that story broke apple revoke the certificate, and all of facebook's internal APPs went dark, and this is a scandal story after story about it, they went on for two days. So I can I, don't recall that APP? Just how he you know, he remembers the day that all facebook's internal APPS went down and people couldn't go to the cafeteria. I would agree I found that answer. Extremely, ed? Persuasive. that. Do you think that was like actually strategic for him to be like, I, don't know and then come back later and correct the record I do remember when that happened I. Mean. I really don't know I mean also you know during a six hour hearing, it's also possible that you just you get flustered or you miss here something or or something because. Yeah. As as you say, I'm sure he remembers the day that apple turned off their internal APPS I mean. Honestly. Seems like an opportunity to talk about apple's market power, and the fact that you know a day of work canceled at facebook because apple got mad. But I think most of the CEO's didn't go into yesterday a wanted to pick fights with each other. It was kind of sad that they didn't. I was Kinda hoping that Tim Cook take a shot at soccer burger. Point that the other two APP platforms I was expecting it. It was there. It was. There was all there. So cellini ended and he ended the whole meeting with closing statement. He said, some of these companies didn't get broken out. They all need to get regulated in the off too much power that some of them I. don't these breaking up apple. What sort of break. Right like. The division get sent into the corner thing about what it's done. Right. Does should spin out the finder team I've always wanted to. A clean is always that they want to. They want the APP store to be separate from the IPHONE. Basically, that's the thing I always hear. Can't break I. Think you can write some strong regulations but not playing you're on store, right. But like Elizabeth Warren's point was it's cleaner if it's two companies, but it's still a gigantic remedy that I don't think there's a lot of like like consumer or public opinion is going to walk into an Apple Cup I think you'll radio at marketplace. It seems very clear that we says some of them she broken up he is talking about facebook. I have a twenty percent conference level. He might be talking with Google and Youtube as well. But if he's going to say some of the need to get broken up like it's facebook, did you hear anything yesterday that supported that conclusion or Saudi stocks I? MEAN HE I don't remember which Republican it was, but he was like the Obama FTC looked at this and they said it was minding love. Obama. Right. Like. Why would we go back in time to relook at I? Mean, there is a belief and I mean. Somebody who thinks there could be a lot of benefit in instagram and WHATSAPP being different companies from facebook. And the reason you ask. So many questions about that acquisition as you're making the case that it never should have been approved in the first place, and so now you need to remedy it. So that was actually like the entire thrust of the argument against facebook yesterday. I think, you could probably make just as good a case that Amazon after spin out aws, but lawmakers chose not to make that case. Yeah. I think that also gets into. Politics of the acquisition of the time. To his credit is like nobody knew instagram would actually be a success like we made it a success. It didn't happen by itself. I, don't know if the lawmakers. By award, these guys said, but I don't know that he actually made that case very persuasively. and. Who knows I mean? That's like anything could have happened. Right? Cram could've stayed independent and rapidly grown and overtaken facebook like that's something that could have happened. It could have kind settled into a middle zone like snapchat or twitter seems more likely to me although I think probably would have been bigger than those two but. You're never going to know I mean it is true that facebook gave Mike and Kevin it instagram enormous resources. A lot of the reasons why Mike and Kevin sold was because running tiny startup that's blowing up is absolutely exhausting Mike. Krieger. was dragging his laptop all around San. Francisco. Because the servers were melting at all times of the day whenever Justin Bieber. Posted like the site stopped working and they really we need help. Finding a person who can quickly fix this? So we don't have to like that is the reason that they were entertaining these offers and wanted to sell it. So that is also thing that happened. Do you think that that same kind of argument or approach can apply to what's up? What's up basically did not come up yesterday and all the focus on Instagram, but that's the other one, right? Yeah, and we know weirdly a lot less about that acquisition I. Think it's because people in America just have so much less love for what's APP generally. That, it's never seemed as important. What happened to WHATSAPP as what happens to instagram even though WHATSAPP, is used, you know way more, it probably has way more engagement even than instagram does so I don't know why that didn't come up as often. We know there was a competitive bidding war for that as well. Goule. Wanted it as well. You know Mark Zuckerberg made them an offer, they can't refuse. Do you think everyday Google's we should've spent more money on what's whatsapp like this could have been solved. Should have, but Google has been placed under an ancient curse that prevents them from ever making the right decision about any social product. So it was doomed never to happen. It's fun looking through the documents and watching them casually say they should buy facebook dot com. Yeah, that. Point. That is how they talk like the window into these executives just casually being like we should just this thing or maybe not, or we should just copied ourselves and kill it before it gets any traction like it's repeated over and over again last facebook question. This one is like harder to parse because I. There's a chance, it's October is just joking around but. But. He's in many of these emails. He's like the thing about startups, as you can always buy them, which I think the committee thinks is a smoking gun, right? Like facebook's entire plan is to buy the competition to get the data from wherever they get it to say, oh, man, this apps popping, we just buy it and kill it before it competes with us. I. Think he actually said at one point. That's a joke. Yes, he did and I believe that you know it was two thousand, twelve, right? He was probably still in his mid twenties. At that point, the company was a lot smaller like people were joking around like there's more loose talk when companies are younger and I do think. It was it was part of that. I think the more interesting question becomes. Let's say facebook is telling the truth about everything. Let's say they thought it was going to be a successful acquisition, but they never knew it was gonna big as it became today and they invested in it and it got super big. Okay. Well, now, it's as big as it is. Should they be allowed to keep? Keep it or should they be forced to spend it out and if you're GONNA force them to spin it out. What's the argument that you'RE GONNA. Make about why one question that I have a lot is clearly the referral they're gonNa make, and it seems like if you don't have some other reason, we've heard hints that there's some other reason, the FTC scrutinize this that will eventually be revealed. But what you're saying is the antitrust standard at the time, the Consumer Hartman stand, which is still our standard. Says, you have to prove prices will go up both products for free. You're screwed. Right? There's nothing to review because you're not gonNA prove prove that free products are gonNA get more expensive. I think it's pretty unfair if you change the standard and you go back in time and say you missed that standard. So I think there has to be something else there. Well, what was the standard by which at and T. was broken up? Right? Like presumably at and T. didn't used to be that big, and then it just got really big and then they broke it up at least. That's the thumbnail understanding I have of that break-up. Well, yeah. But then reformed itself. Right. But because of lax antitrust regulation, right? Like it wasn't a naturally occurring phenomenon that all those APPS got back to the other or was that just sort of like inattention to capitalism It's like in the seventies and eighties. This is Tim moves book the cursive bigness in the seventies and eighties Robert Bork I can't talk about Robert on this podcast. Are we doing this right now. Robert was very influential judge Appellate Judge Federal Appellate? Judge. And basically moved the antitrust law to the consumer harm standard as part of a movement called and economics. A whole thing Robert. Bork. Mostly famous because he was not appointed. He was nominated Supreme Court by Reagan but they leaked video tape rental history, and then he didn't get nominated and that is where the expression getting bork's comes from. This is all true Netflix's still has to abide by videotape data privacy act is a whole. This is all true when facebook and Netflix had some partners, Nansen? Partnership. To. Automatically share your net flicks, watch history to facebook. They're like pending the change of this law which we are working on Robert Bork. He haunts us all. I'm sorry, I can't believe this much. Yeah I. think that's just like the law changed in the in the seventies and eighties, the standard change. The conversation right now is a very much about changing it back months and months ago, pre pandemic, we had an economist from I. Think it was Nyu Thomas Philippon came on the show, and he was like look you have this natural ab test going on in the world where the European Union when it formed was like, how do we get an economy like America's? So, we'll just take their competition policies pretty good, and at the same time we changed consumer harm standard. So everything you're seeing the EU is basically our old competition antitrust standard in. You can see how active they are in everything. Here's a new consumer welfare standard. Whether you believe, this is actually a functional Ab test given. The state of both governments is up for debate, but that was his point I thought. It was spare can say.

Friday. In fact, just over half an hour's time is hunger on aged to Steve joins us now with a look at what's in store for the opposition. After these latest move, Steve Well, Obviously, it's a big blow to the opposition if they have 12 of their candidates and potentially even more to be disqualified because, according to the government here, they do not necessarily meet the qualifications of supporting the basic law as well as the new national security law. So it is a blow. I mean, it is one of the biggest disqualifications. It is the biggest disqualification of candidates. Because four years ago in 2016 6 candidates were disqualified and I'll let you decide of the merit on those disqualifications in this slice of Hong Kong on edge, too. I honestly feel that at the end of the day at the moment, we're on like an airplane with a lot of turbulence. Everybody's holding on waiting for the plane to land. But in most cases the plane land safely or waiting for it to crash or waiting for it to crash, But I honestly feel that this airplane is not going to crash because China needs Hong Kong.

Pan Democrat lawmakers have been accused of using disruptive and filibustering tactics while fostering anti China sentiment playing cards similar to those the U. S government put out in Iraq during the second Gulf War. I've circulated here, singling out the faces of pro democracy advocates, including the human rights lawyer, Albert Ho, the ace of hearts, There will be a lot of scaring tactics.

But neither did I predict that. Oh, I will be arrested tomorrow. No, we live under Chinese rule. So anything everything that happened. It would not surprise us, because that's the way they behave to their own people. But we will stay and fight. I don't think I'm going to leave. Even though I know I'm facing imminent risk being put in jail because you know if I become scared All the other people were also more become u know where is scared that then the whole community to be stifled.

Mark Tucker - Top Takeaway from Alexa Live 2020
"One German please I. Think I know what it's going to be but go ahead? Alexa conversations now I've just okay. I, wish so desert some data. So Alexa conversations a whole other thing. Yeah, we'll have. Six on my list, sorry. Number one is quick links and asked him task. Links so like we said before. You can start a skill by just saying the invocation name, or now an I. And launch it or you can go right into a specific intent by giving it more detail. That's exactly what quick links are quick links launches the APP. You can use that today. No additional work needed for anything. You just construct a url that you include what your skill ideas and it's got slashed launch on the end, and you can post that wherever you can have it in your. Social media you can have an L.. Yup your help documentation on your website wherever you want somebody to launch your skill from then just include that link and what happens is when you click on the link than it redirects you to a an intermediate page now if you if you're not logged onto your Amazon account, that's that's associated with. Alexa and you're GONNA get a log on Amazon. dialogue, so you can enter your user ID and Password, but then on this page it gives you a little header at the top that shows you. The name of the skill is skill icon. It's rating a little information about it, and then it finds the. Device devices that are connected that you own associated with that account and you've got a button for each one of those or Or Button to send a notification to all of your Alexa, devices and so you just have one of those buttons and next thing you know that devices talking to you saying. Do you WANNA start? This experience the specific skill on on this device, and it starts to run in your off just as if you were to have said Alexa open whatever your skill rotation name is. Yeah. I actually think this is a humongous deal for at the whole Alexa ecosystem. This would have been my number one to if I was power ranking him because I think that we've heard so much discussion around discover ability end. Just this dilemma that you know. How do you ever remember the invocation for ten twenty thirty? This idea where you're going to have this ever increasing amount, you don't have the skew more fic- interface like you have with you know the mobile web and you have your APPs and all that. So you don't have these reminders of what APP means what all this? You gotta just remember it and I think this is massive for two reasons. The first is the ability for marketers to. Effectively cross-channel market their skill I think is just a total game changer from a marketing standpoint. Because now you can think of Ho campaigns that the whole purpose is to grow the. Skill user base insight. You have a social media campaign. You have digital marketing. Google's Google ads banner images are websites I can just see this becoming something where you know this is something we'll see a lot of where you get people to enable the skill I. think that's the big thing. Because again it goes back to what you were just saying about number two being the referrals if it is something where it is kind of like it's a system. That's really largely dependent on what you've already enabled, but you can't necessarily remember it, but you know you have that movie skill that you enabled. Enabled through the you know you have the fandango skill or whatever that might be but you know it's slipping your mind of how you invoke that, so then you can use this generic term and say hey launched my movie skill in. It's like okay. I know that that's Fandango in the reason that you were even enabling that in the first place was because of this really effective marketing campaign so I think that this is a massive development for the third party ecosystem because I think now. It solves a major problem where it's like. How do you get people to a get signed up so that you can open the skill without having to enable it and then be i. think it gives them the opportunity. If this whole referral network kind of becomes something where it's dependent on these suggested kind of. You know affiliated searches. At No, I. I think you say there's a lot. In there that just rings true. Because how do you get somebody in the skill? For the very first time, right, you might run an ad campaign. That's got a great graphic. You know. Maybe it's Kung, Fu, panda, and you've got the new country panda skill, and you just say Alexa Open comes panda. seems simple enough but sometimes people just want tap it's there's that extra security of just tap this thing and I follow through the steps, and Oh, now I'm here. You know it's. There are multiple steps. Could you do your one to happen and you might have to log in, and you have the tap which device you want to go to, and then you start getting the the voice interaction. But, for for new users especially that are new to this idea of skills and want to be out there. Hand held a little bit more. It's kind of scary just to say something and. See if it works or not but to build a third USTA. Tapping people are used to touching a button I can't even see. This is something that occurred to me is now. What if I were to take? One of the quick links and Dan saved at as an idea on my mobile phone so I'm I'm already in there and I got some sort of an APP and I just wanted to tap that. And then also it's It's going to allow me to open that up on another device so. It's There's lots of different things that you can do with that so I just love the idea of quick links and lots of different things going on

Use us to Spread Your Gospel - Luke 1:14
"Luke Chapter One verses one through four inasmuch as many have undertaken to compile a narrative of the things that have been accomplished among us, just as those who, from the beginning, were eyewitnesses and ministers of the word have delivered them to us. It seemed good to me also having followed all things closely for some time past to write an orderly account for you most excellent theophilus the you may have certainty concerning the things you have been taught. These are the words that Luke writes to open up his Gospel and there's so much here just to unpack. Think through as we get a glimpse into who is what Luke's purposes? Who He's writing, too, but the big picture I want to. Let lead us to pray. Today is luke. Realizing that, he has seen and heard things that he cannot keep to himself. He's saying other people have. told me things have shared things with me. I've talked with eye-witnesses and ministers of the word people who have walked with Jesus people who have seen Jesus do different things and I am undertaking. What turns into twenty four chapters of writing to let us Theophilus No, who Jesus is? What Jesus taught in how Jesus can change your life, I we have this whole book. That is obviously a huge benefit to us. Today has been for followers of Jesus for non-christians for that matter to learn about Jesus throughout centuries, but it was written in the very beginning for one person for Theophilus did the awfulness might know the truth about who Jesus says what Jesus Taught, and how just died on the cross, so that repentance and forgiveness in sensory proclaimed in all nations will get to that in Luke Chapter Twenty Four. But based on this introduction I just want to encourage you. Even as do the same thing in my own mind. Like, think about someone. In Your Life. Who needs to know who Jesus says? Who needs to know what Jesus taught? Who needs to know what Jesus did on the Cross? And, think through okay. Luke sat down. He wrote. A, whole letter as a Gospel account a story of Jesus. So what Mike God be calling you to do. For that person in your mind. Who needs to know about Jesus? Maybe maybe this sitting down writing a letter email her may be actually a handwritten letter to them. Maybe it's calling them. Maybe it's taking them to eight socially distanced lunch or something along those lines. Whatever it might be. Let's just pray that God would use our lives as we know, and have seen the truth about Jesus and his word to make it known to people like the awfulness around us God. We praise you. Not just for who Jesus is and what Jesus done for us. But we praise you for the people. Who have introduced us to Jesus? Thank you for Luke Ho God thank you for him riding this book? Thank you for. Parents! Or grandparents or friends or neighbors or pastors, Church leaders or church members followers of Jesus, who pointed each of us to who Jesus is and what Jesus Taught, and how'd you just died on the cross for our sins that we might have attornal life in him, and we pray that you would use us in the same way in others lives like this week. Oh God. We pray for the people on our minds and our hearts right now. Even as I'm thinking faces and names and. Trust others are. People who. Know you God we pray that you would use our lives our relationships with them. The opportunities you've given us to share about who Jesus is what you just saw what Jesus has done with them. They might have eternal life God gives us. Grace Greenwich Boldness maybe even to sit down. Write a letter. sent an email. Send a taxed even just to say hey, can we get together and talk? God We pray for these people that are on our minds right now that you would bring them to the knowledge of Jesus. Please Oh God use US toward that end and God we would be remiss if we didn't pray at the same time for people. We don't know people who know Christian knows right now. Think about unreached people groups today the rind below Ch- people who live in that Balochistan region at the. Southeastern edge of Pakistan and Iran and Afghanistan and the. Million of them almost exactly one million, no known followers of Jesus among the rind below Ch- God. Please please. Send laborers to make the good news of Jesus known among the below CH- in Pakistan, specifically the rind tribe please Oh God through this for Your glory among them that like Theophilus Day might hear and see who Jesus is. What Jesus has done and experience. We pray your salvation. God help us to make this good news known the Gospel known to people right around us and far from us. We pray in Jesus name.

I took an hour getting ready for you and you look beautiful even without. Is An accomplishment for sure you're very soon. Are you wearing an apple? Watch? I am wearing Apple Watch. It's like I've been living my life with my Apple Watch lately. Okay, let's talk about this because I just got the Apple Watch and I don't know it was kind of mean to be. Yesterday told me that I like I didn't do enough. vibe to me. I'm just I'm not one hundred percent. Sure about it. You know what I watch is extremely judgmental like sometimes if I don't get to my workout till later in the day by like eleven am, it'll be like hello. You should have been moving more by now. I'm like WHOA. Like calm down like that's just so you're right is a very judgmental watch. It's a very cute. No it's I tried to make a cute. I bought a couple of bands and they just don't look right. You know so, it's not A. It's not a flattering watch. It's very functional. Though I have it has grown on me, and I'd like closing the ring every day. You feel good about yourself and you close the rain yet. You feel like you've accomplished something I. Think it's good, I wish it had a feature. Get an APP that tells you how much water you've had to drink. Yes, I wish it had that kind of feature because I'm definitely missing, but I mean I like the fact that you have to stand up. I mean you're. You're very active. I'm very active so I think even still it's telling me to get up and move around. Whatever Saddam sit at the desk and try to get a lot of stuff done, and you don't realize you're not moving but i. just kind of wish. It was cuter then I saw air. MEZ MAKES ONE and it's still not cute. It's very expensive. I know it's like. Is it really worth it to get two thousand dollars band and it's not even attractive. I mean that's the problem. I think they really need to fix that problem. Yeah, I agree. I even tried to put like a cute bracelet next to it to like you. Pump it up a little bit. It just didn't work as a work, doesn't I'm sorry to hide it from view. If I'm doing anything where I have to be seen exactly all right, so tell everyone a little bit. Who for people that don't know you what your background is sort of like the judy story? Okay, so on the clinical and forensic neuropsychologist and you might have seen me on the TV. Show the doctors. Doctors were Co host I I became acquainted with you and your husband when you guys interviewed me for my bookstop self sabotage, I'm married. It's been oh my gosh. We got married in two thousand fifteen, so we've been married for more than five years. My husband is a physician to just like your husband and so right now in the middle of the Kobe pandemic. He's definitely so so busy and the hospital swamped. But you know we both live in Los Angeles and his family is literally ten minutes away. My sister just moved a mile away from me. She is a professional poker player. And now she lives a mile away from me. So now we're trying to get my parents who live in Arcadia which is obviously aren't there from where we are. We're in the South Bay. We're hoping to get them to get closer. Closer us by the way that is so funny to me, because people always comment about Terry about how he's a plastic surgeon, and how his brother was the lead singer of quiet riot, so as there was a rock star, and he's a surgeon. I love the dichotomy of the fact that you're a neuropsychologist, said neuro psychiatrist, saying that right narrow psychologists. Yeah, you're neuro-psychologist and your sisters are professional poker player. I know she is totally. The black sheep of the family liked, but doing so well for. An, exciting career, and actually both of us are using psychology our careers. She's just using street psychology. You know what I mean because dot is such a big part of playing poker. That's so injuries. So what is she to I'm assuming she usually travels around and does. Tournaments and whatnot. How what is she doing now? She's in Vegas right now because we're in the middle of the world series of poker, which is like a huge event every year that is held in Vegas obviously right now because Kobe. They've had to make all kinds of. Changes and so actually they're all playing online salt. Be there in person to play online for to be legal, so she's still having over Vegas over there right now. Playing Poker, but yeah generally travels the world. She plays poker. She actually does a lot of commentary to so she hosts her grams about poker on channels like ESPN and it's Super Fun to get to see her living in her element. Wow, that is very cool. Yeah, it's a crazy. Crazy life like literally whenever I go to Vegas. People are following around 'cause. She's really famous poker player and people are just following US around asking for photographs, people are like staring at us when we're at the buffet, trying to just have a nice dinner so it's funny, because my sister is literally legendary in the poker industry. She's actually ranked number three of all female poker players in the world right now. Okay? What's her name Maria Ho? I have to go look up now. That's crazy. I don't know anything about poker. Driver Pete He goes to Vegas a lot and he was telling me he was there actually a couple of weeks ago and how crazy it is right now. I guess the casinos are still open. Wow. But a lot of the Strip is not open and you have to wear mask. In there, but You're still have a smoking section. So how does that work I? Don't know how that works because then, aren't you taking off your mass? Just smoke? I mean it's such a weird. I mean I don't think they really know what to do. Because obviously, this is unprecedented, and no one knows what's working. What's not and people want the economy to still be functioning to some level, but you know in Los Angeles. Obviously all the card rooms are closed, but I Have Never Seen Vegas closed in my life like when Vegas close down. Even partially you know something's wrong right like nothing now. Dad It's crazy. We love a I. Love Vacationing Vegas I love seeing the show and getting awesome dinners. ANSI VEGAS AND I don't even know when we're all going to feel comfortable doing things like that now. Have you traveled at all? I? Haven't no I have been very good to basically stay in one place. Do all my work in my patient work on zoom. and rarely rarely. Do I really go out and interact with the world? Only for chores and necessities and stuff like that, but we miss. We miss traveling so much and you know. We actually had a really good experience a couple years ago on a cruise. We're like Oh, we didn't think rely cruises, but we love cruises now and lay out. We went on a really good Royal Caribbean cruise, and now I'm just like. When are we ever going to get to do that again like? I! Don't know the only one thing I could say about the cruise industry, because my parents were always really into cruising, and we went a few times when we were in high school. I think Terry's not a boat guy. You know he gets seasick. So that's how his things probably not mark cards, but it's such a huge industry, but my only thing is is. Is that it will come back, but I actually think that maybe this whole pandemic is going to be good for the cruise industry in the long run because I, think always they.

Don't @ Me: This CS:GO Player Faked His Own Death
"Sunday. June, fourteenth at twitter account with the handle. Handle CS rough, tweeted out quote, rip me Ho. He was a good kid. It really sucks. What happened and quote the person he was talking about was his friend who goes by the name Mi-ho a see us go player with a long history applying playing on ESPN now. If you guys aren't Cisco, heads, ESPN is basically a platform that for a price gives you access to better servers in a more robust anti cheat system. Also has its own amateur league system. Where you in a five stack can sign up to play organized. Go well rubs. Tweet was pretty low key in me. Ho is by no means well known in the go seen. This news quickly spiraled out of control. Because the reality is me, Ho wasn't dead Yep me Ho faked his death, but why he did. It is a little more complicated than it seems, and we'll get to that in just a second I promise now I've deemed back and forth with rough and to be clear. He did not know this news fake when he originally tweeted, he legitimately thought his friend had died and was told this news by. By people he trusted eventually. The news caught the attention of Oso. Dank on top of having a fantastic handle works a support staff for rank s for Ese a and if you guys didn't know, rank s is basically as highest level of competition, a ton of pros past and present got their start there and I actually talked. Dank was sad to hear the news about me. Hope passing especially because he just talked two hours before he got the news, and then around two thirty is when I saw the first tweet from his teammate Ashley from his friend, or whatever it was saying that he died. Was You know in a car accident etcetera? So I'm shocked him on twitter and ask them like you know. What like you know what happened in like? I'm sorry you're that etc and told me that his. Cousin said he got hit by a drunk driver in the in any died. So that's all I had to go on. So I made that tweet of mine, just 'cause. It sucks to see people you know. Pass away in the community, and it's like you know it's. Never a thing to see soon after that people notice that me, Ho was playing ceus. Go on, ESPN A and well. Yeah, he wasn't dead and once Oh. Dang found fat out. He tweeted out that he was disappointed. Such news was played for laughs. Now here's where the why he did. It comes back into play, and it is a little confusing. After people found out that me wasn't debt and was playing ESPN. League matches with his friends multiple East sports news outlets broke above the situation and the article state that me Ho allegedly faked his death in order to get a thirty day. Ban on his. Account and they attributed this fact to him, but that's not true, and here's why first off after the story blew up me. Ho tweeted out that he didn't do it to get around the thirty day ban, but because him and his friends thought it would be funny on top of that. That's not how the sea community guidelines work. Basically me, hope is given the thirty day ban for threatening another player while competing in rank. Rank s qualifier match. This was his fourth banned for threatening another player in his eighth GSA band since two thousand seventeen, and it was this latest thirty day offense that also Dang was talking to me Ho about hours before he died, he reached out to me through discord, and like asking me about the ban, and like asked me about multiple things like I'm not like I'm not gonNA. Sit there and argue with somebody like. I didn't really talk much more after that I just I told them like why he was and what he said. And what you know, the reason is now. If you banned ESPN qualifier, you are still allowed to compete at the league with the team that you signed up with and I know that sounds confusing, but basically why does it this way comes down to a matter of scheduling? It only applies really severe. Bans like Dan Abrasion you can't play league batches, but with like community conduct violations where like you get banned from a Pug or saints on a platform like we still allow us to play league matches or does because. There would there would be a lot of scheduling problems if if that wasn't allowed so the idea that me faked his own death in order to get around thirty day, ban on his account makes no sense because under Ese community guidelines me, hope was still allowed to play an as league, which is exactly what he did, which ultimately how he got caught, and now we've ended up here. Okay, so we've gone this far, and we haven't heard from me. Ho yet well DMZ him. Asking how this all started UAE, he decided to fake his own death, and basically he told me that he was peer pressured into it by A. Teammate, and yeah, he apparently signed to Valentim, called trillium, and he's making racks so good for him I guess now according to Oso Dank he doesn't think me. Hosts going to get another fan because this happened on twitter and had nothing to do with the sea, so as me, weights out his latest band, continuing to play CS, Goer Valor and it's safe to say that this story is pretty

Have Man United Improved Under Solskjaer?
"Craig and frank with US Craig. What happens to you and I said? Well first and foremost. Why it can play in the chat league, because the Court of Arbitration for sport overwhelmed ruling. Now you go! We went into the intricacies and say. Think well I don't think anybody's really interested in the factors that can play. So, annual. Mean Franken segments. I'm no bottle. Convenient if you like no right I. I thought. Were good for the point. You know we know. Got The call. But he started so sloppily and I was. I was really impressed. Foster fifteen twenty minutes walk. Ralph has say that with what he's working with with the budget with the place called the way the press. They really pasta, and they were good for the lead. Listen to to Sucker Punch of two or three minutes reunited with some quality. We saw Paul Pogba Leon needing a kick up these box me sleeping possession a couple of times I've got caught for one of the goals. I thought I thought they kept plugging up to know a strong that the star. The strong finish all be inactive down. To ten men with the head injury to two young Williams wasn't ideal, but it couldn't defend the call now. And so therefore, we were not deserving island thing of taking all three points at home this. Is Craig mentioned once. You've got those two goals united. Franco well that's done and dusted united going to go on and win this game. Yeah True I. Think it was the end of the story and. Was quite unfortunately for Saas on, because seeing the the hard work, they made no and the they went through to maybe try to get at least. Withdraw off time. They were two, two, two, two, one at halftime and I think when mentioned decided to finally play the should that they were better than the saints for the second half same problem. Still Sloppy and at the end of the day you know. You always have the risks to to see the. Getting goal, and then seeing you getting outside the stadium withdraw and these up very unfortunately, because we didn't got injured the play ten against eleven the last. Let's say seven eight minutes and kick, but you have to be strong. You have to your more experience. You WanNA reach the chimpanzee next season. You shouldn't consider goal on the corner. Kick if you want to if you want. Everybody thinks that's going to deserve to be in the chimpanzee. That's really two points relaxed stupidly from from Manchester United at the of the game. Done seems to be a law. People recently have gone tidal wave of all souls Lavin. And whilst they have. IMPROVED THERE'S NO DOUBT ABOUT The Bar was extremely low. There's an argument to be, said the F. as hotter manager, they might have already knew Detroit for and be in possession of trying to chase teams down. Let let me just give you some facts off. The back of the the lockdown. Enough talked this. They've only had one team. That's not in the bottom half of the league, and that Sheffield United today interest and start from. Leslie the Skykomish who's on the feed calms tonight with Jim Bergman. He said we must remember. Prior to this game. Points return and Premier League history on Chop without the fifty four points behind Liverpool. Last year, they finished two points behind the league champions. Manchester City some point out to me Ho this is a superb progression under only gonNa Solska, and as I said, some of the footballs been better, but we must, we must remember the V. could have been in the top four nil dawn with that scored hide behind the manager in charge, not setting fair four points behind Liverpool and scrambling around to get results against teams in the bottom half. The League that that's that's not opinion. That's fact you've got Kim credit for what he's done over the last few months early, Craig. But in a league season is over a few months that don't don't think the twitter crowed. A league season he's been in there. Before Christmas the year before you had the January transfer window at the summer transfer window. His second year in the job. We're talking about a full season. They are fifty four points of the league leaders. That's more than they. We're off Manchester City when the championship last season and I repeat the second points return and their premier league history to this before the game tonight. Tell me why it's a reason to be separate cited above Manchester. United I would be concerned that with him at the helm right with the hail golsby be able to negate the amount of points next seasonal decision after that. That does worry I would have United Fund not coming up here. All this is the greatest thing ever look at the results forgetting looking league table. Look at five bucks look at previous seasons. This is the worst they've been. In the last Chris Seasons in terms of the gap, even before source was the job marina wasn't that far behind on goal wasn't as far behind. That's factual.

Okay semi stories very read. Yeah okay good yeah during the day you want you to do Steve or no shit on the fans but who the Hell Am. I GonNa Shit on offense fine. They're fucking driving in the middle of a blizzard. fucking pay Steve Salaries shut the fuck up. Jesus I'm allowed to shed on them. Not Steve Steve Gets a little arrogant. Sometimes you know that like he you know that can make some fingers and you'll be sitting there fucking producing shitty. Howie Carr show again begging on fucking how sure I think he's got a lot of heat there? That's that's what I hear Steve With the wife. Oh Cathy Carr ooh tough tough customer. So when I I was going to leave or not leave they try to bring me into that world and she was like we'll flight on marijuana. Are you gonNA write books. We want you to part of the network and I was like I am forty forty five I am not not. AM radio like I'm doing that And then she got mad and she sent me some random text. Like where. You're going back to you I anyway thanks for some like what the what is is going on here. I understand people fucking crazy. I you know I don't get it but Steve could go back and do like how we cars syndicated show New England in afternoon afternoons all over. AM stations. He's in like you know if you drive up today this afternoon. You'll hear them all over Maine. You won't lose the whole time. I am not much better than than Steve I started listening to Howie Carr in ninety eight. I know everything anything about it the I I never really big nerd. Steven's point is Stephen Go back and do the midday show that syndicate. If you want to we can fucking shut his mouth and not be arrogant or main C- to run for office you keep saying now. I don't think that's going to happen. Steve's not going anywhere I think he's okay right now. He's doing a good job. We Love Steve. That's so that was his only request quest for you. That was his only request. Okay you have any questions as a minivan hosts do you WanNa talk about before getting some other stuff. The floors plenty of time to talk. I'M GONNA lead silence into by the way that'll that'll be great. I can put that in for the week in review. I think I'm more I I like a little more A. D. C.. With I like the week in review by like you with a co host to sort of talking about. I like that. I'm trying to do both. I'm trying to figure figure out and bring some people in. We're GONNA do Mayo and Ned stark next because I had kinda some magic on Mike and the benefit of the fence kind of hurt your stole your whole thing. Well he told me stolen actually did steal a kind of he stole it. Yeah I think we can still do what we're doing a different platform. It's a little bit shorter. Mike Criticism Azuma. Mike and the fans is it's too long. Two hours on youtube is a long time but you also listen to it. Just jump around no. I don't mind I don't mind that I mind when it gets boring. I even with that. It gets very monologue e and I think that depends on who he has on. Mike should start. The show should do a monologue for five or six minutes sort of set. The stage is what's been going the last week or to talk about this this and this with this guy this guy this guy then bring them on and then open he should then be moderator like feels like he needs to fill the space. That's the issue so so he'll just keep talking. Yeah but you know that's up that everybody there has basically been on enough now. It's comfort on them to start talking a lot of you know. I've tonight's going to be Greg because I think tonight is GonNa can be a fucking train. They're going to be loaded. which will be good? That should be stupid. That should be wild up there. I think we should expect a good tight is probably going to be all choppy and weird and that'll be good but yeah. I got a lot of people yesterday or last couple of days. tweeting saying you know Mike. The big knock Mike is he has no initiative Acerbity says he needs. He's be pushed. I think that's true. But what am I supposed to do about why is that. My wasn't cometh upon me. Mike is he is played with strengths. He's also like you know blind. Now let me that is but like I think it's hard for him I think he's also incredibly Lack self confidence that that is as big as roadblock and he's just give story about it just like you know I think he's always wants to ask first and then do it. Just go do something. Don't you know go go find something to do you even horrible. It's jail make fun of it does Matter Bank. That's that's his bets his biggest his biggest well roebuck right now not to push back but early on he did show some initiative in you told him as a bad move he he tried to get t shirts made without approval and you did shit on him about that when you you know you talk talking but confidence is built over time that's why there's nothing to do with the show I don't care about it I don't I don't care about the merchandise for the show I'm just saying pretty very consistent about that like I literally don't care if people buy something you don't just giving you an example of initiative out on on air initiative though I reached out to him I care about that'd be like saying he he fucking works at subway or something what happened to that as a little bit of a stupid fucking stupid what's that reached out to him after one of the portnoy beatings where he's like you know nobody nobody ever said that I I never said I was talented like Mike go in there and say I am talented those games he does go whoa is me though too though and that's when I get I do get annoyed at that words like okay with stop sucking lip. You're not going to win. That way. My God he's gone from blindside pods two major market radio in essence. Have a little confidence that if you stuck stuck around this long you must be good in some way true. Although if I wanted to fire tomorrow begun like he would not even exist anymore. Where would he be fuck with higher him? He would be back on squarespace now. He's doing fine sooner wonderful job so so CBS Gayle King. whose host the morning show with? I've got rid of Charlie rose. After raping people did an interview with Lisa Leslie. Why I don't know I don't even know to? She doesn't play Basketball March music fifty. No because she's friends with Kobe and they came together and Kobe was really working to make the WNBA great that go not pretending to the WNBA WNBA matters to anybody. We preparing me. Bryant right now brings in people. I guess here about Kobe. So Lisa Leslie Because the interview with her And then CBS wisely because they want saw the fuck things up to the only thing. That's interesting about Lisa Leslie the interview that's GonNa get any cliques as Kobe Bryant. There's nothing else in that interview. Click nothing I don't even know off all right. What was it? What else would you even talk to her about? She taught when with what was it like. When when you got drafted what was he cares? Nobody nobody even knows who she is. Nobody cares so they play the clip in which Gayle King asked where the clip. Yeah I got. I just play that I met. I do have it will take a saying I can tell you. Take more than a second good. It's been said that. His legacy is complicated because of sexual assault charge which was dismissed in two thousand three two thousand and four. Is it complicated for you as a woman as a WNBA player. It's not complicated for me at all. Even if there's a few times we've been club at the same time Kobe's not the Kinda guy never been like you know. Go get that girl are tower or senator. This is isn't he. He was never like that. I just never see have ever seen him. Being the kind of person that would be. Hold on I mean certainly in history you know. No one's ever I said I didn't know this guy rape people was like this. They're always like no. I knew he was a rapist. He was always.

He messaged me Something along message very nice message. So did st pick the title of the show. Yeah okay I figured he did so. Steve usually picks title of this. I actually have no oh hand in that which is fine he did. He doesn't he likes to do. I don't think it matters. I mean do you think matters you click on the no no nor to why so he called this one frank. KOMO's it was revenge yesterday right Geno till Nick semi message in these basically he was just like. Hey I just want you to know like I am not in this revenge. I just want to tell the story and I feel bad for the victims and I think people should be held accountable. And that's why I'm doing it so I just WanNa get that out there that you know 'cause that's an I'm throwing Steve under the bus. But it's my show and and so I should have thought Kona opens up. He was really honest. He was excellent. Excellent so today's show be Frank Koehn as revenge partout okay. That's all right so I just want to get out there for him. Because he was on the I took a lot of guts that come on and say stuff he knew a lot of and listen to it. They did And so yeah so no big deal and you be.

The only go so far so I find it interesting that that that story. We'll see but I think it's gone. I'll think anybody's GONNA investing now go anywhere anywhere. Every team in Major League Baseball owns their cities. And it's pretty clear. Nothing's on the level. They're trampling everything down everywhere interest. Well I suppose so. Let's say that you know I don't know I'm trying to pick who Susan was promised. Red Sox Perogie Betts. Betts is gone zander. BOGART's seems like a very very nice guys will interview with Spring Training couple years ago. Literally like I think it gave my mom. Cancer is so boring. Oh my I'm serious about that. The doctor mentioned that too was a potential side effect for pancreatic rather cancer. You know. Obviously there's smoking which my mom did a long time ago. She stopped and then he's she said listening to player. Interviews in Fort. Myers can actually I think Benintendi over the edge. Yes yeah that's probably true. Actually my Dad's my dad's yeah. I think those are back to back days by the way one point. I think you're trying to say the Red Sox hate people with cancer. They hey people with cancer and they actively try and stop people who are trying to raise money for and they would like people to be orphans. They would like people to be orphans. Yeah I suppose they would. I am an orphan. That's that's true. Are you with a half orphan. But I haven't seen my dad since nineteen eighty two so who can blame them. Guy had some vision he had. He got the hell allowing went to New Jersey. So you have a whole new family. I don't know I think he had a general. You talked about this when you talked about your mom's thing try to steal my act. You pretend you're mom's cancer which is fine no big deal. It's a real. That's a real fan fan. I I made sure that she dropped dead very quickly to show your oil. Your mom is not much of a fighter. How long she asked thirty thirty days? Oh my God just tap right now. My Mom sixteen months. She was pretty far advanced. She went on stage four. Yeah but my mom didn't go to the doctor she didn't believe in. And then you go to the doctor you die. That was her thought process. There were lots of she was right she was right. So yeah no kidding. But that is true. Like my mom's general physician this Guy Dr Taylor in reading my mom had kept playing a little stomach pain and he thought that sounds unusual. Say took it actually took an x Ray. If he hadn't taken that x ray the same thing with the happened your to my mom that happened to a belay Barbara the correct name. Yeah about that memory. Oh look at that. I'm talking about so we. We go to the pay credit cancer ward all the time in it. Yeah this guy you know because the average stage four diagnosis. What is an likes five months or something I if I like? The median is between two win. Three okay dropping. Dead in a month is not unusual for everyone like my mom there. People who like eight days like you get diagnosed like your mom. Your mom could've gone two weeks later. Verse she had her first Chemo treatment and that was it after her first ever gets aim mostly they gave her she did. She did go. Oh through Even though she went through one round chemotherapy went through run. One couple days later was Thanksgiving and she didn't eat right. That was that was that was it. Yeah I look at guys like Alex. TREBEK's act that is not the norm that he's continuing to work. It's almost a year and he's that sick now. My mom a year in my mom got diagnosed. It just happened a couple of days ago. She got diagnosed yesterday so but like a year in she was pretty good like she went to Ireland that summer. She was great but when it gets bad it gets long way back designer. BOGART's He's boring is what you're saying Zander BOGART's beat the shit out of his girlfriend. which I don't think he would do? Seems like a very nice guy they would cover that hat. It's under the rug. You know what I'm saying like the media zinc we don't even cover that because there's a rule of major league baseball well have a disciplinary action. Oh Stephen ignored it. But you know but you know like when it's this one in I have to say the stories a little confusing do have to dig a little bit. So they're kind of like. Oh Yeah we're taking almost like Lucia. Though yeah he tapered lose basically on twitter tapering music. He was a kid he made a mistake. You WanNa stay. They had a history and he's an asshole and and they're going to bring them in and I'm I have to admit I'm stunned. I'm stunned that nobody because it's an easy. It's an easy fight. Just crops was on last night blasting them for Caraba Baba was. Oh Yeah I didn't hear these warih's of tweets on twitter series of tweets out the Red Sox he was. He was telling someone to take a look at that interview that you did yesterday. That's right I listen to a bunch of radio yesterday to in the only person that said anything was big Jim. He's the only one that I like him but he didn't fucking mentioned our shows name. Amy knows no he didn't know it's fucking radioactive. The guy loves our show. Yeah I think if you had the chance he would even do like impressions on our show. Yeah I do believe that like you. So into the show that he would even I think he has the ability to do impression. I could see him doing like a a again. It's like silly but just say there was this B. movie actor right and he wound up being elected. The president added states right in present for eight years in the glorified figure pins in one of the COMEDIANS. I could see Jim. Murray trying to impression like that. But here's the thing I don't even blame him for the it's gotta be terrified. One mention and Bob will show up there and he'll take them down because he's a rational fear but my point is so. I think you're right but like Jim Murray. And it's not his fault but he's thinking because he's probably untold this. If I say Kirkman Berkman Hanson. podcast shows name on the radio. This is going to happen. Look at what happened at Iheart. They just got rid of what a thousand people they have morning shows that they got rid of half of it but that's a huge successful show though but he doesn't matter authority their third member talkie saying. Hey you know Kirkman. My favorite personality drew. I mean he would just say hey I know no he was on Kirkman. The Hans podcast like that's that I'm not that dangerous I could see the mindset of being terrified dangerous. Who am I missing while we were on the right side of this fight absolutely now? I'm doing it purely Shirley out of hatred spite but it doesn't matter of all the great things that history had done for. Have that audio by the way if you want it. We'll get Aaron. But but yeah I mean. I wasn't surprised I did. Enjoy those speaking of corrobos. That was a good right hook from Nardini blind. Mike Portnoy didn't take her. She count he just the easiest punching bag. There is Yes she I mean you heard that girl right. Yeah I was I wrong know. Jesus Christ as a Sega Man. It's like well all right way leads no shit So we'll see what happens like it was more tickets than St Peralto fucking loser Sir. emmys amateurs a nice guy and everything so I guess I give crops credit. He's on the show at these people. The show's hugely successful. Why it is but it is for crops is even saying I don't really want I'm here? Why the hell is he well? I think there's a Garin austen connection there really. They'd have a strong relationship but I mean if it was charity. Didn't want him there. He wouldn't be on the show. I think that's a bit of an act Komo. I've never I've done that. Show I don't know three or four times. I've never understood Steve Crawlspace purpose on earth. Even use pod. Yes I think he does that. The girl produces I think I guess he used to when they were doing it from. PBS TRY DID IT. The first time and I think he was producing it there. I think that's right. Yeah I was a section ten guy really on goalie way. Oh Yeah I listened to probably first hundred episode baseball talk. Yeah it was Wayne's of the Red Sox in baseball talk back then. I tuned out in football season because I thought football talk was boring. I wanted to hear baseball talk and now I hate these people. I could Never Watch baseball game again at gone full circle. I don't think you're alone. I think a lot of them in the face. I think a lot of people pull especially this off season between Cora between this Mukhi stuff and and you know. We'll see what this story but I think people are just in the fact that the Games fucking boring who is wealthier both easier than John Henry. Baseball's an owner. He's gotTA BE NOT FI. I would think for sure. And they can't afford how it's ridiculous best player that they had. Maybe since and maybe even back to ski or Ted Williams that good you got sucked into baseball talk. Though who D- does he calls. Algae talks do it. That's true well listen. I haven't heard much from Brandon Walker this week. It's been quiet it's weird. It's almost like the bar so people have divorced. KFC tweet about the show. This morning so I was getting. That was the Walker interview or podcast with him was. That was my favorite one good. I was hoping to helping you. Tell me what your favorite was top. Dan I don't care I don't I don't care at all. I don't believe you going right from here to the show familiar WASCO.

"You know it's funny. I've been making fun of this impeachment from the beginning because the Russia thing blew up in their face and they tried obstruction of justice that blue in the end they finally. Oh we'll take phone call in here. Four lines from this phone call will make a scandal of work. Isn't anyone believe me. I don't understand but but you know just to be serious for a moment. It really is wrong. They have made themselves laughingstock but that makes our house of Representatives laughingstock and they've made impeachment a laughingstock and means or government has no gravitas. It means all this rhetoric That they use has no meaning where the things I've complained about. It is the way they take trump out of context. I mean this is really important. Victor Davis Hanson. wrote a really good book about this the case for trunk but they say that trump is mean but how many for how many years they've been calling US names James Racist and sexist and evil all the stuff they say trump is vaulted is vulgar. But who gave us this culture of vulgarity. Who gave us like rap culture and the you know filth everywhere and the foul language that people use even in the workplace You know it wasn't trump. That trump is the product of that. He's he's an end result ULTA that he's not the one created is the left. It's the left to create now. They say oh. He's lowered the tone of government. You can make that argument no question about it. But trump is Hitler you know. Impeaching trump is slavery so impeaching. You know they've lowered the tone of government by doing this so incredibly and trump really is giving it to them and I think I think people are going to start to hear him. Here's let's take cut.

This is Ross filter from from Idaho. Who Basically Channel Michael Knowles in his speech on impeachment heavy and verbal debate? I choose to use my time to enumerate in detail every high crime and misdemeanor committed by the President United States. I will do so now so you just stood there for thirty seconds and said absolutely holy nothing because the president has not committed any crimes and he really has not committed any crimes. I mean He. They haven't they didn't withhold aid from Ukraine. You know when Ukraine I annexed Crimea. Bush put sanctions on them. And then Obama took them off and sent the reset button. The same Bush Bush overreacted and when Putin then realized he could invade Ukraine invaded Ukraine Obama. What did the Obama set and he sent them like coloring books? I mean he's send them anything you know. He's symptom little. Spongebob Tie clip so he didn't send them anything with trump. It was trump was sent them the league delay they needed to fight the Russians Russians missiles and and sniper rifles and he didn't withhold the aid you've got held up the the budget office as it got held up on for normal reasons he. He mentioned that they should investigate by that. was probably you know that was his big mouth. He says much going over the line. They're teaching and for that. No aid was held up. Quid pro quo. They said quid pro quo. And then when that didn't go with their Focus Group. They changed the bribery when they couldn't make that case they changed it to something and then something else. It's an embarrassment. It is new bathroom. They're wrapping chain but they don't know it yet they don't know it because they have created. This may be Pelosi knows it but I think most of the Democrats are living in a fantasy world old. Were they get patted on the shoulder for their participation in the government as participation trophy for being in government from the press and and then and then the press which who thinks they're still living in the world where they were the information we got. They think they're still living in the pre internet world where the daily wire doesn't exist and we're all the other right wing voices don't don't exist with facts come out whether they like it or not. They can't understand why the polls are going. Trump's way polls trump's approval rating is going up support for impeachment is going down and they can't get it. Here's Chuck Chuck Todd and Andrew Mitchell the worst-affected here they are on. NBC Yeah because there's no difference now between NBC and MSNBC Ziesel one big liberal place where they you know as long as they can keep Harvey Weinstein from being investigated and protect Bill Clinton. They're happy they can't understand what's going on here. They you're discussing it hilariously. This is the world that we have. You know there's a factual debate and then there's the political reality and as this this is it. I mean it's bizarre to think that he's getting cheers on Battle Creek Michigan on the same night is literally getting impeached on the floor of the House. It is bizarre but historians will make more sense of it than we can right now all right. Andrew Mitchell are chuck mentioning that polling the polling continuing to show. Nothing has really fundamentally changed. So we'll actually impeachment change anything we don't know because she'll be totally honest. Women would've thought that over all of these weeks wchs and the testimony and the arguments on the other side that something would have shifted but the poll numbers that we have tonight. That came out this just this evening are exactly identical antica to the same polling. We had October within the margin of error. At this point. This is going to play out across America throughout this election because it's going to be decided by the election you know. It's a long time before the election and this may not cost the Democrats as much as it should cost them because it's such a long time. I'm in trump can make mistakes and he does make mistakes. But but you know if you remember the last vote had come right after the cavanaugh debacle for the Democrats. I think we we would have held the house I think. Republicans would have held house So it's still a long time but I think this does do more to the Democrats than they can think. I love also Chuck Todd and Andrew Understand why people aren't sold on this complete Bunkum but I love the explanation of political commentator. Michael smerconish recorders. is talking about this. He's got it all figured out. I'm most interested to see whether the result of today and tonight is a momentum shift. I have to believe I believe that there were more is on the proceedings that have just ended than at any other point in this process. But here's the question that needs to be answered. Why has public support for impeachment? Mint actually declined as the hearings have played theirselves goes up and his approval is up but with regard to the decline you can look at the Marquette Study of Wisconsin and most critical state probably of all fifty in the election. The Gallup survey that came out today my own theory is that most Americans many Americans in the end because it got so damn nasty just decided to chalk this up to partisan bickering pinnacle of partisanship. You ask Maggie. What's the headline of the future? That would be mine. I don't think at this was born of partisanship. I think this was born of his conduct. And frankly the underlying facts are pretty straightforward in the end but in but it was very hard for people who you're working for a living and raising kids and so forth to follow all the names and the places and the dates. Funny Little people with your funny little jobs couldn't possibly absolutely understand the complexities that Michael smerconish or whatever. His name is understands. You just can't get you know who's the one person who I think actually understands who who actually understands the atmosphere of this going on. I think it's Donald Trump and I'll talk about that in just a second but you know what we are not going to break away today. So last Cleveland show of Before Christmas and we WanNa keep as many view as on the tether before you plunge into the vast empty darkness of the Cleveland Holiday But but it's all the.

Her Rachel Baid sent out this picture of them all celebrating and laughing in high with with a tweet that said Mary impeach nece Mary beaches and the sheep sheep when everybody said Oh little. Washington Post is just basically an anti-trump vehicle where democracy dies of boredom she pulls it down and she says we'll everybody miss understood it to mean exactly what obviously meant is very very solemn Is Impeachment now Pelosi. This is unbelievable Pelosi. Sat Not not hand the rules of impeachment over to the Senate because she wants to be able to negotiate with the Senate over the rules which he has no right to the Senate can make its own rules. That's that just like the the the house may these incredibly unfair rules where the president couldn't a call any witnesses or the only all the witnesses they said he could go and so she wants to hold hold this up and and on top of this? She gave a press conference today when they ask for Shit. I'm not taking any more questions on impeachment. This is this solemn emergency the feet of the House of feet in the nation Western civilization is at stake. It's all we'll my. Gosh it's A. It's such a terrible terrible thing But we're not talking about. I mean send it over to the Senate because it's better political. I mean who do. They think they're fully I. I have now spoken personally to three separate people who said I was never trumper album voting for him now because this is absurd. That's a lot of people for one person to know who say the stuff and I haven't talked to that many people so it's pretty pretty wild. What I think they're doing i? I just think it is amazing so this this whole process was it was embarrassing. Let's let's begin with The Pelosi her opening opening statement. I mean these are the just remember. These are the same people who when George W Bush was trying to win the war on terror I I supported them then deserted him said Oh you know this this nationalism. This patriotism these flag pins all all stinks of Hitler at it. Larry and and insanity. Here's Nancy Pelosi's opening statements this morning and every morning when we come together members rise and pledge allegiance into the flag every day all across America children in school members of the military officials and those civically the engaged. Also pledge allegiance to the flag. Let us recall what that pledge says. I pledge allegiance agents to the flag of the United States of America and to the Republic to the Republic for which it stands one nation under God indivisible with liberty and justice for all the republic for which it stands is what we are here to talk about today a republic if we can keep it. We gathered today under the Dome of this Temple of Democracy to exercise wanted one of the most solemn powers that this body can take the impeachment of the president of the United States. Jesse goes in to the pledge of allegiance. I mean she actually says is it on the unbelievable and then and what I love is the press taking her seriously on an MSNBC Andrea Mitchell. Chris Matthews discussing discussing this the NC Pelosi is a woman of a person of primary colors. You see if she's not wearing white. She's wearing bright colors She's certainly always well. Appointed appointed beautifully beautifully arrayed. If you will. She's wearing black. Today is a symbolic expression of how Somberly they were taking this sacramental shark remotely and and you can talk about the politics of it. It's no question Chin that Nancy Pelosi came to this reluctantly. Oh what a bunch of crap. It's unbelievable that they can say Sacramento Sacramento. I think maybe it's his corrupt the Sacramento. I think that's that's what he was trying to say it's Sacramento. It's the mass. It was like it was like taking the body and blood of Christ was that that's how seriously they took it. Let's listen to some of the rhetoric that that came down on the floor. I mean it is. It's amazing to me when I say they don't know how much we don't care. They don't understand how little we care about this if they are actually sitting there thinking that anybody besides the most virulent MSNBC watcher assume they're going at Sacramento. They were really solemn. I was really I really believe I saw. That's nuts but let's go to the house talk about some of the rhetoric that we heard. Jackie Spire Is from California and and you have to say when you remember that Schiff and Pelosi both from California jerrold Nadler is from New York. It's a reason why we need the Electoral College. It keeps thus it reminds us of why we wanNA keep the electoral college because of everything. We're California New York. Everything would be these people. I mean really. It really is that. These people have left their districts that are littered with homeless people. That are littered with drugs. I've had people crapping on the sidewalks in front of people that are starting some of their did. Some of these places are starting to think about making Making laws where on your private property after leave a place for homeless people there policies caused you look at the rest of the country which is coming back to life as trump brings jobs back to America. There's just no question that he's done that when you look at that and you just think like this dream world. They're living in. They have to sell it at this incredible the high rate because otherwise people going to look at them blinking and saying wait. This is about a phone call to Ukraine. Is that what we're talking about. Here's Jackie spire from in California. My father fled Nazi Germany for America because he saw what happened when a despot became untethered he he fled because he believed in democracy and the rule of law and the right to vote so donald trump is Hitler except they never. I wonder why they never impeached Hitler. I'm just trying to think about all that. Because he was Hitler. Zik Impeach because he'll kill you because he shut shut down the congress he basically took over He became the dictator of the country. And they keep saying this is happening with trump. Except it's somehow it just never happens. Somehow we never disobeys a quarter. Somehow he never passes a law that limits our freedom of speech rather the opposite. Somehow we never comes and carries the Jackie Speier spear away. I mean what. We're where's the Hitler The that that you can attack like that and get away with it. There is money. Just the president of the United States. You know he's he's allowed L. mouthpiece obstreperous he's not always nice. All those things are true but other than that. He's doing a terrific job and he is just an American president sick. Another one Premila J. Paul from Washington without that we are no longer a democracy. We are a monarchy or a dictatorship and so today to uphold my oath to Constitution and country. I will vote to impeach Donald J trump. You know this is really interesting thing because she says without impeachment were if we don't impeach him we're in a monarchy or dictatorship and obviously until the impeach him. We were obviously in a dictatorship and a monarchy. So we've we've all been saved and who that was close. I was really I was really missing my democracy where our votes counted. And they didn't overturn them for no reason whatsoever but now that we now we've been saved you know they're not turning the impeachment over to the Senate then don't WanNa have a trial because they don't want to be humiliated by actual witnesses witnesses. Who might debunk everything? They've said but we're living in but it is what it does remind me of the fact that the Republicans before trump put some steel in their for spine during the Obama Administration Republicans announced that they were never going to impeach Obama. They were never going to impeach Obama. Basically set him free free to do whatever he wanted to do that. Republican Party is gone now and it's gone because of Donald Trump that Republican party the dithered about Immigration the Republican Party. That said go will never impeach Obama because they were afraid they were afraid of the press. They're afraid of being called racist that's why that's why. They said they would never do it. They were afraid of being called racist by the press that party. That Trimble's at the site of Chuck Todd is gone. That party is gone because Donald Trump in his mean way in his obstreperous obstreperous way in his loud mouth way has put the press back on their heels where he belongs and of course just for over the top rhetoric. Let's not forget the always reliable Hakeem Kim Jeffries from New York again. There are some who cynically argue that. The impeachment of this president will further divide an already fractured union in. But there is a difference between division and clarification slavery once divided the nation but emancipator rose up to clarify that. All men are created equally. Thank you so much game because this was like slavery until this moment home and this was until they had this impeachment. This was like slavery I mean it really was it was just. It was kind of you know the people were working without pay you know. They're out in the fields being. Yeah I mean it really until this moment when they did this thing that they're not sending to the Senate because it's such an emergency and they won't even talk. They won't even answer questions about because it's so historic get so historically historical so historically historical that is historic how historic it is and yet they can't be bothered to answer questions about it because it's it's too I don't know why they because nothing because it's nonsense. I guess that's it but I just I just wanted to be fair. I just want to be fair before right. Move on to talk about some of the other things that were said and especially to talk about the press. I just want to be fair. There was a little it was a little over overreach on the right as well L.. Here's Barry Louder Milk from Georgia before you take this historic vote today one week before Christmas. Want you to keep this in mind. When Jesus was falsely accused of treason pontius pilot gave? Jesus the opportunity to face his accusers. During this trial Pontius pilot afforded more rights to the Jesus than the Democrats have afforded this president and this process i. I'm willing to concede that trump is trump is Hitler. But I'm willing to concede he's not Jesus. Yeah so we had a little little bit. These guys are just so full of themselves. It's unbelievable let me talk about something that actually works as opposed to our Congress quip toothbrushes. Che's these toothbrushes and electric toothbrushes. My dentist and the dentist assistant told me that electric toothbrushes were the way to go and quip is the toothbrush. You can take with you because it's sleek it doesn't it comes with battery.

All over San Francisco and And she went to the House to lead the impeachment of the president.
