A Holistic Approach to Data Governance Through Self Reflection at Collibra
"Your host is tobias. Macy today interviewing stay in krisztian known stan about data governance in the enterprise. How khalib applies to lessons learned from their customers to their own business so stand. Can you start by introducing yourself. Yes of course. Thanks for having me over. Stan from libra one of the co founders of the company. That's two thousand eight. We've been doing this for about thirteen years now. And i've had a variety of roles in the company. I've been responsible for sales post sales partnerships. The whole nine yards the right. Now what i'm responsible for. And what i owned data office on the lake and on friday evenings recall that drinking our own champagne only mornings because eating and do you remember how you got involved in the area of data management. Yes i do and you're probably not going to believe it. But i i study doesn't mean you need like tropical engish but a colorblind so you can imagine me putting it was just one of the courses. We got there was sequel. And we've got this thick thick book of sequel the language and database. And i was thinking to myself who needs this. What is this mind you. This is nineteen ninety eight the year. Two thousand maybe something like that. I forget who needs to be money for such a book right so i was thinking as soon as i run through the scores of something that nobody will ever need. I'm going to sell the book. So that was the only textbook that ever sold the sequel book. So obviously i wasn't been bending to go into data management necessarily when i was in school but i went to a software company after my studies. Also did somebody ice. Obviously that they may be deeply comes back and then the company stints. I ended up at the university again but as a research engineer and then we were doing research into semantic slept startup semantics up to gatien's research slept with a database professor. So i worked there for about three years and there was really sucked into deep of the artist. She well when when did they go.
Unlocking the Power of Data Lineage in Your Platform
"Hostess tobias macy into today interviewing julian ladonna about lineage new standard for structuring meta data to enable interoperability across the ecosystem of data management tools. So julian can you start by introducing yourself. Hello i'm jillian. I guess. I've been working in the big data space for the past. Fourteen years studied at yahoo building platform on top of you and in a study contributing to open source project like the and that's how i joined the twitter data platform team. They are steady up at she parkway project and that led to contributing to the launch of the aba chiro project that you're on and morrison t i with the architect for the up a format. We work after that. I studied dedicated. Which i'm this show now and so you've actually been on the show. This is your third time now. So you were on to talk about your work with apache parque. And you're on with doug cutting. Who was the creator of astro. So that was a good conversation. And then you're also on talk about your work with marquez. Which is a natural transition to where you are now with. Data can which building on top of that platform so for folks who listened to the marquez episode. I don't know if you want to. Just give a quick recap about where that project has gone. And maybe what you're building on top of it with data again before we dig into open lineage. So you can from. When you build data platform it quickly becomes evident that she need an equivalent of service oriented architecture retro data pipelines like people consume data they produce data and by default israel egypt visibility. Where they did is coming from awards going and so we need to understand. We consume the data that we produce and how they impacted by the changes were may be doing and we understand where they did is coming from that. We're consuming how it's being maintained in deadwood right so that leads us to start the marcus project at we were so you building the data platform at work. That where's the need for. How do we understand in an organization where they are many teams that consumed produce data. How do they understand how they depend on each other. In our things change.

Federated Learning for All With Flower
"Your host is usual as tobias macy today interviewing daniel boy till about flour a framework for building federated learning systems. So daniel can you start by introducing yourself my nose daniel. I'm the founder of a hamburger. Best startup called adapt. And i'm one of the creators off to flower federated learning framework. And we call it and flower. The friendly federated learning framework. I got introduced a python. Yes absolutely so. I started doing python a bit more than ten years ago. Actually during my undergrad studies. And then i didn't use it for quite a bit. But then as you resurfaced on rediscovered it or to hold data. Science space within machine learning is pretty much based around python. So that's how i again got into it and started to learn properly and now we basically use it. Most of the things we do apart from some some educa- select a weapon like mobile applications. Where other languages are more suitable. We now use it for all of the machinery of beckoned systems and actually for some robotics cases to it before we get too deep into flowers specifically. I mentioned that it's a framework for building federated learning systems. So just wondering if you could just start by giving a bit of description about what that means. What federated learning is in the context of data science and l. So when we usually talk about machine learning the underlying assumption usually is that we have a single data sets sits in a single place so we can access the entire data said we can analyze the entire data set and we can basically read any example that is placed in the data set with federated learning. That's not the case anymore. I mean having a data said in a single location is pretty restrictive. So you have to collect all of the data. I which is not always possible sometimes not possible due to our example legal constraints. Sometimes it's not possible. Due to technical constraints the data is just to lower the rate at which the data's being generated as too large transmit. All that over the network

We spark cousin infrastructure provider for quite a few. But i'm pretty passionate about it. So i hope i have some interesting stories to share with your audience and do you remember how you first got. Involved in the area of data management. Yes so. i studied engineering. In france then went to the. Us stanford at the time machine learning was. Everyone's obsession. I remember the pretty popular machine. Learning class by andrew hang had one hundred thousand students registered but it was actually a separate class that interests me mining massive data sets at which was like my introduction to distributed computing and. I find that this area was a great mix of really software. Engineering problems algorithms architecture problems. And then i had the opportunity to join. Data breaks as a pretty early software engineer just out of college and that was an amazing experience. And that's how. I go all in that area. And so you mentioned that you had that experience of running spark at data bricks and now you're running it for other people in your company data mechanics. I'm wondering if you can start by giving a bit more of an overview about what it is that you're building their data mechanics and some of the story behind. What made you decide to set out on your own and run your own business to help provide this service to more people. Yeah of course. Sedate mechanics is a cloud. Native spark platform for data engineers. Our platform is deployed on kuban cluster. That we create and manage for our customers inside their cloud accounts so the contract with our users. Our users develops barcode. They submit it and then we take care of scaling infrastructure tuning the configurations collecting logs and making them available enough friendly user interface.

Pretty much across the board So most of your. Is it true that like all of your e. Commerce business is affiliate at this point. That's right at this point. All of our affiliate business comes through affiliate links and relationships primarily with amazon. It's no secret that most lifestyle publishers like us have a lot of Affiliate business that comes through amazon just creating and serving a boatload of content.

Big sites where they have real scale and traffic and for the most part Our users in readers there to transact and think about product and we have thousands and thousands of editorial articles that we do every single year that have shopping links in them. They might be through siblings again. It might be through amazon. It might be linked directly to macys dot com. The difference here is the shopping engine That we're going to be partnering with allows for readers very seamlessly transact on our site Checkout once they can check out for as many products as they like and then a bot will basically push the order directly to a retailer to fulfil the transaction and the consumer will get you know five or six different packages in the mail but the checkout experience will be will be super Kind of seamless and most importantly friction lewis. I think you know. The pandemic has accelerated a lot of things. You know even how we're having this podcast conversation right now We might be doing it in a different format. Had we not had you know quarantine but it's also accelerated Advertisers emphasis on performance and conversion with the work that we do for them so we do a lot of branded content a lot of upper funnel awareness building type work big beautiful storytelling influence your work videos. But it's harder with those kind of tactics to have. Readers actually have the opportunity to transact move down the funnel to purchase this this this opportunity that we're launching really really removes all those barriers no longer. Will there be seventy clicks away to a point of transaction. You'll be able to do it right from the content that we're creating and not our site to have to do it so i'm really optimistic about it. I think companies like goop were invented with the idea of content and commerce. Working really well together. And we're looking to kind of kick all of that up a notch and really service both our advertising partners through through this new econ experience but also you know maybe creates a new affiliate revenue streams as well.

Nintendo Switch Outsells the 3DS
"Switch has sold seventy nine point eighty seven million and that is hell of a lot and the nintendo switch light has almost surpassed the sales of the we. You just the light. Why oh man. Yeah that's a it's a big number it is. It's pretty incredible. Just just like think about the the roller coaster ride that nintendo has been on with insane success of the we the we and the insane crater of the we you not that again. We have to caveat. There's every time we say this financially. I still think that system was really fun. Rain like it was a financial disaster or at least a sales disaster and now this is like they're on top of the world. it's it's insane that trajectory. It's really really yeah. I think honestly. I don't think it's hyperbole leads to say that in japan console warsaw and no. It's the what was it so far this year. Ninety nine percent of all software sold in japan was for the switch right eighty and like hardware was and what is important to note he is that intendo always dominated the handheld sector in japan and that market has turned away from consoles quite a bit right and so in a way. It's a sad story right if the. Ps five dozen succeed in japan. That's a bummer. Because we might get fewer titles for that platform from japanese deaf students. Or maybe they'll they'll be serving more kind of like the western tastes but either way something could be lost but It's obviously really good for the switch. So i looked at the data Their nintendo still expecting to sell two point. Four million units in this fiscal year. Remember that fiscal year ends in march. It's not a calendar year. Which means the entire year for the intended would be twenty six point five million so that stacks up with how the we did back in its heyday. Like the i think the fourth year for the we was like something around twenty five million so the switch will be doing better than the we however in. This is the thing that i think. A lot of people are ignoring at the same time. Nintendo back then sold thirty one million. Dss right and so. We have these The hamilton the console lines are combined into one. And so it's not exactly the same scenario and so fewer pieces of hardware being sold in japan. I'm because we have one console race now but what it means like at the end of the year you know. I mean first of all at the end of the quarter. You'll be seeing the the switch. Probably clock in at eighty two million sold worldwide which means it is ahead of the psp which was a big success in japan. It's ahead of the gpa. Which was a big success. Everywhere in is right behind the xbox three sixty so the end of the year will probably see the switch ahead of the three sixty and the ps three. And i also wanted to mention that. New horizons is reached. Thirty one point eighteen million sold so it. It's very close behind the best selling game so far. Which is mario kart. Eight deluxe which is at thirty three point. Forty one million. Which i know we've talked about before because this is a week game. We don't crazy so we might actually see a made for switch game take over the first slot sometime. This year with a wonders never cease game specifically aid for the nintendo switch. And not the we i. We talked about the blessing. And the curse of mario kart eight selling so well because it's like nintendo has less incentive of cranking out. Mario kart nine right. Yeah but but but hopefully hopefully not hopefully they think they can do those numbers again with the marcotte nine with completely different tracks and all that i feel like i would have to write. I know horse. I'm sorry to bring this up on blue. But i i saw you talking about elegies mansion three has sold more than a lot of zelda games in the past. Yeah which is. I think that's really cool. I mean you just mentioned three again if you are. One of the one of the switch owners are listening to this. Podcast does not has not played it. You make a huge mistake. There's a reason ten nintendo boy that studio the last game is a huge step up from the original. Luigi is mentioned which was developed in house by nintendo and a huge step up over the the second game. So i think that's really cool that we're seeing this sort of success on you know mario's little brother and tall brother. Whatever he is. Basically the macy of mario felt. It's true and i. I've noticed that now really really cool. I am on those swift owners. Who has not played louise three so i think it's worth it. It's

"Not agent wbtv thickset really was a longest letter first of all year. Long lost cousin. He is pretty. We're from the same slot like sandwiches. He is taking something that you know. Just more of like a feeling and emotion experience and he's really putting it through the intellectual. I don't it's taking. I think a cultural judgment with a just a relationship judgment. Which is like if you don't if you're dating a girl that doesn't know not to wear cornrows for civil like that's she's as a liberal she. You're better than her and she's got to go. It's also you know you're you're talking about it. I get why because your intellectual lawyer. But you're talking about in such a sterile way. Intellectual property law curiosity. I light is a culture footbridge. The reason why we we as a culture of coined the term is. Because it's not that everything gets influenced. There's food someone. A large population moves into an area. The food influence as over you can take and give from other cultures. It's so much worse than that. W- the reason why people say cultural appropriation. Because you've literally took taken from black people and they've made fun of black. People made fun of their culture. Fun of just everything disparaging they've done and then when it something didn't let them claim elections go ahead. I'm a waiter drums and they made blues. Then they took they made rock and roll then. They took that away in them to contract. Let's be honest. The black people of credit so. I don't know it's different than kleenex or hoover or cue tips. You know what. I mean. What i i know what. He's saying he's yeah. No i know what he i think of. What he's saying is the struggle is. How are we the girlfriend in the corner. A girlfriend didn't have. You had a corner on girlfriend by the way what girlfriend. She didn't sell anything so why why advised that she break up with the guy wire advises the guy break up with her. Who did that. I did neil neil so why because because because as a liberal and a comedian. I'm superior and i'd better taste and i'm saying taste wise. That's a taste violation of its taste. I don't think anyone's gonna make a huge argument that even the adele thing was a tastes violation. You're just like it wasn't a it wasn't she didn't release an album by the way would sell through the roof a dell gym dance all adele record. Forget it it would be great. But there'd be like my pink floyd side of the mon look look for on the run. You can't you can't play it. I just think the problem is that like people are have been buffoon and make fun of and parodied. Four jews living their life. How they run to and that kind of that. Just feel like that hasn't been fully resolved because even now bloggers aware like their hair. Wrap wrapped go out and everyone kind of makes fun of it. Or it's a little ghetto. Having their hair up. I mean not if you're new york right. That's like this stand. You're in ohio. It'd be like what a mata hari over here. But now that white girls have weaves. Now there's like these hundred dollars satin weave. It just feels a little like it. Just it's it's going to happen. Everyone takes seals from each other. What's that quote steele's still everything. Just make it a little bit better fashion. But i think it's the i think it's just the kind of humiliation and it's just cultural. There's just the red yellow car and then there's just like if you should be able to sell somebody else's called you're right. Elvis is wrong. And bob marley and your kids bedroom is correct but and then the girlfriend. It's superior it's a. It's a cultural tone deafness that i love a lack of good by understanding of like you've got mail. Bianca neil have question was who'd to high level podcasters such yourself out of boy. Berg would be nice enough to ponder as you go through life deciding whether or not to pursue continue relationships. To what extent does the person's financial status determine these decisions are these judgments well informed by the strain By the financial strain the strain financial instability can put on the individual and the relationships or any other personal failing. You think might be more likely to inherit be inherent in the puts a fucking complicated. Are these judgments more. Informed by the strain. Financial instability can put on the individual in their relationships and or any personal failings. You'd think might be more likely to be in hereon in them. Okay obviously me personally. I'm rolling in. I literally hundreds of dollars in the bank since this is a relationship question. I ask that you. Please keep your answers. Sexy eighty hundred. We're gonna we're yeah but it's does. Would you date a broke ass. No absolutely not go on. Here's the thing. I don't need you to have tons of money. You need to be ambitious as fuck. I like ambition. I'm a drag as you envision was well i don't mean they're all you're trying to ambition until it then you realize that it's going to cut into your attention time and then what do you email now. No no. i'm out of my mind. I'm out again. I'm taking up these things out of whole cloth. No i'm writing fucking folktales over here about relationships. Where's fear padre rian bag. No i just. I i guess the thing is in my mind a broke us. Know brazil's. I've dated brooke as soon as i just feel like. There's a age range where you can eat a dude the just fun doing nothing chilin and you can. It's the relationship bond. The crux of it is really about how much fun we have. But that gets old. And i think after certain age you can't even if he's great there's tons of people you're like if i was younger i did but just i guess ambition wise. I just want you to be into doing something just so broke as dude at whatever maybe an older age i mean come on you know no because we have a good heart. You're brave fuck. That no so doesn't mean you. Can't you have to be rolling in dough but broke. No no no no because that means at some point like what are you doing you got. Were you having this like. I don't know where's the money. No i also i would also get. I'm fine getting pre-nup. I don't need your money. I would need to be like. Oh yeah that's right below like let's review the get the alimony revenge. Well yeah so. Let's just signed prenups. Couldn't agree more. I don't. That's why. I'm saying i don't have a woman sign a pre-nup when we match on dating app just to get it out of the way created just immediately. I sent i. What's your email. And then my lawyer sends her pre-nup and then you get it back and realize she lives in highland park. Not worth a thank you. That was a close one. I feel like a dude. Good data broke girl.

Now it's a fucking ego's the wrong word but it's kind of ego it feels. Yes if you live in a world where everything flatters your point of view which we all do now based on our website web traffic and whatever if you live in that world you think that the idea of a liberal president is so crazy no hell is like basketball teams that lose and at the last second and the and the The call is disputed in like they're still. I'm not talking about like the seventy two olympic basketball team. It's cheating i'm talking about like did derek fisher. Get the shot off in for the rest of time the fans of the other team. They didn't even win that game. It's like that but way worse. So they're already claiming mitch mcconnell when we started recording was saying he sent a president trump deserves to prosecute his election fraud cases can as far as he can't right but what he would have said what they what is it. Twenty years ago it was like no. It's silly we need to move on when you turn the page one hundred percent. I mean not literally twenty years ago. Twenty years ago said we do need to go. But let's say twenty five years twenty six years but like i remember when Trump was the twenty sixteen to twenty sixteen at remember Twenty sixteen so like the campaign stuff in everybody was interviewing people who were for donald trump. This is before he came president hand. They were interviewing a lot of white rural poor people who need welfare systems in place and who use welfare systems in place and Donald trump was running on the fact that he's gonna repeal obamacare and these people were saying that with obamacare their life saving medicine came down from seventy five dollars to fifteen dollars. And i think the only made i think they only made five hundred dollars or hundred a month. Yeah they're really poor from very poor county in like the south and they just ask them so if you repeal obamacare. You're going to have to pay for this out of pocket and can even be more than seventy five dollars and she was like i don't care it's i'm happy to pay more to have a and i was like your lady lean. You need this to live it before. It took one one of your monthly income and because a democrat gave it to you. You don't think that's when i was like yes. When when people are voting against their their interests a woman like that voting against her and her interest is tribal. she's voting very much in her interest. She wants to be. She wants her tribe to be on top. Yeah this is like whoa. It's it's basically it's like we're going back to the middle of the fucking or or yeah. We're going back to the middle ages. We're going not the stone age exactly but they couldn't a liberal couldn't pass. I was thinking today with the with covid. You liberals couldn't pass seatbelts now. They call them tyranny straps they would and they would go. I'm not wearing tyranny. Strap well let's wouldn't. I'm trying to think that wouldn't pass. Most environmental laws. Wouldn't pass most work work. Work work Not workman's comp. But we're anything liberals would not pass because they used to be able to get the working class voter with there was like a shit kicking wing of liberals that's gone place by with the unions unions and then once that was gone it's kind of like they don't have they can't they're not it's not that now. Republicans are shit kickers. Even though they're not good they're not but they are spiritually. Usually i'm serious. They don't have any taste. They'd mitch mcconnell. They'd none them drew all men's warehouse. And that's what i'm like if i'm if i'm a war if i'm a blue collar guy what i'm like if i see if my options are are Mitch mcconnell and chuck schumer items. Chuck schumer fuck out of here. Which is real regular or like okay. Or jim jefferies. Or adam. Schiff yes jordan. Jim jordan adam schiff. I like adam schiff. I took you're looking at uses fucking hair care products like he gets baguette their product from way from like they don't get their products at cvs. He's just he just like running like kinda regularly but he was a screenwriter. At one point really. Yeah yeah like. There's there's the offices in la. Yeah i mean he you know he's like he's actually a smart guy but the good guy but it's an easy to if you're a man pure white man he's a he's a beta cuck beta. Coug liddell's jim. Jordan is is arrest is a former wrestling coach. Well it's like they also. They also elected a former football coach.

You told me he was going to win a very specific way based on the people. You'd ask corrupt it's not even corrupt in a they're in it for the man 'cause plenty of states had trump winning and he did so. I don't think that they're always the wrong word in formula. It's astrology it's basically take. What three thousand project. Thirty thousand people make so. It's we just. I don't think it's that big of a deal. It's more like we have to stop. Putting so much steak on polling he's up in and as reclined. Boats said on a podcast. They feel bad how much they talked about the pulse on their shows. They're like i feel like it was misinformation yeah can be because oh well meaning like Hillary in the polls they were all wrong about hillary. That's what i'm saying. It's the same so it's like wants go. No different now. Why defending pollsters they. I four years john understand. Like why would you. Why do you want them to. I know you want them to be right. But it's like it's like one of those things where they ask a bunch of kittens. Who's going to win the super bowl like these the kittens puppy. Yeah the puppy bowl. I spoke to. The puppies is your. They're different these puppy. They're smart puppies. Is you trayvon trayvon. Because i own two granted okay shave on a low now the second question bianca. Why so the biggest.

Most in the history of america donald trump. he got more than reagan. He got more than obama. He got more than bush. Hillary himself he added ten percent. That's fucking the terrifying part of the whole thing that is. It's hardly chris. Rock had the a tweet about how he feels just like job. He feels like tom. Hanks the end of castaway. Yeah i just want to eat and then take a shower. See people who are saying. I don't feel like celebrating. But i kinda did not. I'm i'm better than him winning. But it's it's it's no bron obama salvation but it did feel like a relieve. We're we're not. Our windpipe is not being impressed. That's it's like we still have like week. It's like the thing where the guy off us but we still have to run. It's not. I don't feel like people are celebrating by the way. No one wants to be president. Still i don't and if you don't how do you think i feel proud. Whiteman now but like if you don't want to be present. what do you think. Because she's never going to get people in the middle or the or the right now but just legends deal with what it is. She is vice president right now. He is also in his in his acceptance speech. I was like usually yelled the whole times the first time he sounded competent. Hard data and this actually not a lot of floods with no consequences like go ahead and yeah you fucking crazy you eighty percent felt like i liked when he yelled better than when he was part of your celebration.

"Wanted to find out how the hell you got here whereas you come from macy I'm Canton Ohio, which is about an hour south cree. It's a small city about one hundred, thousand people. My mother was a teacher and my dad were Ben. Still Factory and had a bomb shop and then. I wanted to. When I was seventeen I got accepted USC and I came out to La I went actually the film school. But got a dad wasn't that interested in film added because I'm good with the pin I could write. Stories together and I got into screenwriting Aram while I was there alleged was hanging out with the music majors. And I joined the band started messing around. You know at all the clubs on the Strip the way speed. Iraq seas way back in the day. You know but the bag slots at the five o'clock slots like March were no one was not even the people that work there there yet would be on stage you know. One day during a Barium. It was like a six o'clock slot was still day out. Nobody was there except for Mike top players girlfriend in two other people in walks a guy by the name of Tom Caroline who was head of. At Greg Zapped time and he was actually there I don't know if he's hanging out already came to see someone else. But he come. Shall you pull me aside after show and asked me about to showcase for Atlantic records and then I did the show. Got My first record deal, and then I got pregnant and then the drop me I mean, you can't say that's why you're dropping someone. That's why drop because my I will never came out, and then like three years later I got signed to epic records and they put out my first album, which is on how like these that was good enough of micro. So did they effectively shelving record? We gave this was and I got pregnant and I was actually comments real because I was actually trying to keep it from him but he showed up at the studio where.

Exalt never it never came out but it's a good I still have the Are you able to release it or does it Lenox Hill own the rights to it and then you just can't do anything actually epic body. So when I got signed epic, they bought it from Atlantic so that Atlantic wouldn't put it out. This is what goes on behind seen literally nobody can put it out. Because I lived in Nashville for a long time and I worked in radio but a lot of my friends are musicians and songwriters that story isn't unique that happens all the time where someone will make this amazing record and then they shelve it and then nothing ever happens. It's a still born album and some put their heart and soul and their blood and guts into and nothing happens. It's the weirdest thing that happens the music industry but obviously It's bonkers at happens I read a story that you were doing the music thing you got signed than you got pregnant they effectively dropped. You were almost I'm gonNA. Go back home I'm gonNA stop doing this. Is that true again go back home I live with my mom when I guess Me But. I had to go back to my mom's. So how did you get signed again? Then it was whereas I was home I had actually since a my first record I had actually got married in had two other kids. I had three kids in four years.

Might take some way back in the day and you adult to this day. I. Have No idea how he got my number any called my house. My House and I got started publishing the then I got my radio. It was brady from God backs. That was proved that there's a God because none of it made sense. I was GONNA.

Yeah I signed up is pretty crazy but I had no idea what was going on because I was also used to failure. allergist brought like they're like we're going to give. It was thirty, five, thousand dollars. You know when you with your mom, you know twenty years ago. That was a ton of money. So I was like sure. Yes, I'll do whatever. I have. Huge record rows Judah go in allow. With everything you know I wasn't expecting any of what? What are your parents thinking at this time? Are they like I? Don't know my cats what was so open to because you know when you have a kid that's chasing some kind of wit dream you Kinda. You go through it with them. You know. It was so funny I got booked in a do my first big show in the stage was in Philly Wasn't that big show by you know beyond saying standards for Mayor Vic shells like a thousand people.

Your mom my mom need to go hang out and. Try to figure out what the Hell is we do. I feel like the big breakout record was on how life is is, is that right? Or was there a bigger one before this is my debut album I think it's a nine million records worldwide. Well, that was the first one that was allowed to be released by the record label I suppose. People loot under said they have these huge citing buzzed budgets and then they go sign all the bands they can afford. and. Then out those bands, they may be picked they can only afford promote for five. You get like fifty to a hundred bands that are just sitting there every year at least time. She's got a wait till your your time comes up you know. So I was just starting in radio. I, think that record came out and I do remember that that. I, try was the single coming out at least for our radio station which was a little small AAA station did one did the record label? No that was gonna be the commercial success that it was and was it your first single the first thing was actually do something that did pretty well On. Radio was.

Berry sometimes, they're not doing what you're looking back having matured and going through the I. Don't know the Weird World that is the music industry to realize why that was such a big hit or do you think it was a phenomenon in its own right? Now because if you ask me to dissect why people attached to that song can conti- America make something up but it wouldn't be I really never understood it and to this day I seen it in everybody's skill knows words and I still hear it. You know when I go to starbucks On our end sell, it's pretty wild. I have no idea. I really I. Wish I could explain it because then I could just do it again. Yeah..

Yes that strain that you had put you to sleep if you smoke this other, it won't and. We don't sort of codify marijuana's countries just here like if you get into it, then you know. I mean.

We're shooting Christmas as a dream I think we're going to make. I mean as a marijuana entrepreneur, you could get. Very rich could. Doing it to be broke. Records. No. Of course. Not It's it's a huge. Growth Market and Then I really think you know there's this What's what's? What's What's more like writer would for stigma? Putting the pressure on. There is stigma is a good word because there is a stigma around smoking weed, which I think is attached to its illegality games. They think it's illegal it's immoral but if it's not illegal than is immoral, it's plant. Has. been. It doesn't make you violent escape. Plans crazy. What's the? What's that Super Intellectual Word for stimulus? I don't know I don't know I can't read your mind. thinking. You don't want to. But I. I don't know figure it out right after we finished the interview. Right. But no. But what are you saying there is a stigma around smoking and you want to try to break that down. I think there's always going to be a stigma around. because. That's that's the legacy of it, but it's it's. It's really terrific. Player and as the sides to it is. Fascinating and and You know a growing and all that is just a proper craft and you know. So there's this stigma. UNDERGRAD. You know people just sit around and smoke, but there's IT drinks so much to it especially when you get into regular down in oils and cannabis and bill are you oh, you're selling oil and flowers eventually I'd. You know what? My mom I send my mom CD oil, CBD oil and and that helps out quite a bit. These smoke with your kids. I don't want to say. Can I get arrested? Oh there your children and your children are grown children are twenty, twenty, one and twenty, three at one. For the rest of. They're not supposed to. What actually what am I kids? Wait actually helps her asleep I mean if we if we think that it's fine, it's just the plant it's not immoral. Why would we not smoke with them I? Mean you would share a glass of wine with your grown children right or a beer with. The whole fantasy that twenty. Concerned Twenty Along. One hundred percent. But they're not. They're not. They're. Not Babies. Thirteen, old a different thing to do it with a twenty year old now like alike. So as way for me to just Kinda, make sure she doesn't get out of hand. So why don't you can't sleep?

Like now it's just you know it's almost cool to. Suffer from depression because everybody says that but I, think that's where it came from because I can just go through life you know looking miserable and crying and telling everybody you know how how bad you feel it just doesn't just doesn't work out for you. So I got learned to. you know do what I gotTa do in. And and keep it moving. Capable because you have to do, that would be hard.
