'We come from the stars': Indigenous astronomy, astronauts, and star stories

"When you think about the night sky what constellations come to mind. Chances are they're rooted in western astronomy but indigenous. Astronomy and scientific knowledge have been here for millennia. It's just not taught in schools or considered important within universities. My next guest is working to change. That nielsen is mick ma. And he's a professor in the department of astronomy and astrophysics at the university of toronto. Helping welcome thank you for having me. So how would you describe the way. Astronomy is typically taught in university course university of toronto's famous having a an astronomy course fifteen hundred students in it in that course generally starts from the early greek and roman astronomy aristotle type of plato pythagoras and they will channel through european astronomy with newton and cabrera hey and yohannes kepler and galileo of course the modern enshrinement is just one linear path from the romans to essentially neil degrasse tyson and today scientists. It's very very centered in the european model. And how have you been incorporating indigenous knowledge in your courses. I've been trying to do that little bit here. And there are courses tend to be quite full of material so adding new materials always a challenge. But i always want to make sure students come in and the first thing they see is not there. Expect a constellation. I don't him see a bear with the tail lakers major. I want them to see the constellation view. I nor a constellation of the bear or a punish shining relation that please and to recognize that these constellations reflect landover on i for in toronto or in new magi or anywhere and what is indigenous astronomy. And how do you define it. How is it or how old. I define indigenous astronomy. As being the the knowledge of the peoples of the land so and since burnett Nation state of canada would find it as the astronomers of the people that were here before settlers in colonizers so strongly of the astronomy of first nations big cree on astronaut and so on across across rhode island and every nation has their own perspective of the night skydrone interpretation in knowledge of it and so these indigenous astronomers speak to connection to the land and and to the people and that knowledge has been here as long as the people have been here and so is there a star story that comes to mind for you that gives an understanding of indigenous astronomy. Great story was the story of noon on the seven bird hunters which is a story so close your eyes and you're looking morni- guy and you see what we call the less the big dipper. And if you're looking at the big dipper couple of hours before dawn in spring you're gonna see the big dipper pointing downwards so the four stars make up the bear kind of facing downwards detail is climbing higher in the sky the four stars of the big dipper in the bull our immune the bear and then pours. What would be the handle. The big dipper are at the bird hunters and you go on those three stars to another four to get the seven hunters and the story starts by while you have to get up early in the morning a couple of hours before dawn to this constellation when we observe it at that time in the morning and we observed every day we can see the constellation circle around the sky. The constellation circles around sky every night as well. So we see the two different timescales in play but if we start in the spring at that to ask for dumb the bowl. The big dipper the bears pointing downwards. And that's when the bears waking up from tiber nation and decides hungry needs to go gather food as the bear leaves. The cave i robin spies upon the bear grabs it's bone arrow and size to chase it from hunt and the story continues through the summer when muniz running across the land so the constellations kinda flat across the sky and the birger chasing it as we get towards fall newness getting tired and stands likes to fight back so the constellations on one side again. Some of the birds have fallen below the horizon and must track the hunt but immune you and stands back robin fires. It's era a striking the immune in the heart killing it. Blood gets everywhere. All of robinhood flies into the tree shakes off the blood separate one stain on his chest. The leaves are now allred as a result. Chickeny joins robin. And they begin a celebration to cook the cook. The bear and to celebrate the feast harvest as we approach winter the constellation as the bears on his back again and reflecting the spirit of the baron sky and waiting for spring to come as part of the next cycle. So we see lots of different kinds. We have knowledge of the year as a calendar have knowledge of ritual and ceremony and we have connection with nature. So it's not just a shawny story. It's it's part of. It's a story that people in story of how to be.

"Of congress's nine hundred billion dollar stimulus deal also still hangs in the balance last week president. Donald trump demanded that the virus relief package that had cleared. Both chambers of congress be revised. The package should include two thousand dollar checks to most americans. Instead of these six hundred dollar payments included in the current legislation and other items he considered wasteful and unnecessary should be cut. He said trump had still not signed the bill. As of this weekend allowing the lapse of a number of federal unemployment insurance programs that millions of americans have joined over the course of the pandemic more than fourteen million americans rely on the pandemic unemployment assistance or pandemic emergency unemployment compensation programs benefits in both of these programs expired saturday but would be renewed march in congress's virus relief plan despite the threat equities mostly held up strongly last week as traders still anticipate a near term resolution stimulus disputes either during the trump administration.

Still No Improvement for Patriots Against Impressive Bills

"What. I think of that game question. I just got done to tell you the truth and let you guys now. I only got through the defensive film. Before i did mass these night games like brutal. I'm getting too old for this stuff. It's it's tough for me to recover. So i just got done watching the offensive film pretty much. It pretty much hold true true. I just thought they got beaten all three phases of the game which highly unusual for team especially in a division. But i think. I think that's where the two teams are. I mean you look at the bills of the the the current the present and the future of the division right now and the patriots. Just aren't and i think i think the thing that look. I understand where the they are offensively. And they didn't quarterback play out of either the guys they ran the ball. Okay the offensive line play was just okay It wasn't as good as i thought upon closer inspection You know this is a team that offensively has a very small path to victory and they basically have to execute well and they have to make the most of all their opportunities and they just haven't been able to do that. Second half of the season including the opening possession when bird drops pass including a. I mean this is just where cam newton is i mean. Even that pass was late. The the sony did a great job of running the ball out and running the play fake. Because most of the time you get running backs who will pull up short or hurry up and they don't sucker in the defense. He suckered in the defense made a good run over to the right side. Threw it back to camp perfect. Then what does cam to he starts running. And then he pulls up and then he throws it was still a good throw. It was right there. Birsh caught it. But that's just like a little tiny thing where it's just those type of things just have built up in this offense where it just the execution level just there and then you look at the bills and you know look. Josh allen has improved a lot he has. I think some of it. You know tom. I don't know how you are but you know you. And i are sort of the same age. We're both were were old school. Fans were old school sort of sports guys. Where you know. My dad told me like if something's too good to be true. It usually is and for a guy like josh allen to go from fifty nine percent completion percentage to like sign percent in one year. That's just it's it's unheard of. It's unheard of what he's doing into me. Then i have in look. It might be true. He might be the exception to the rule that he has improved that much. And he's going to be a hall of fame quarterback. I mean that's very possible. I don't rule that out anymore because of what he's shown this year but to me. It's the combination of brian. Daboll step want digs all those weapons. You just look at the bills and everything they do on. Offense is easy for the patriots. Everything they do is hard. And now i think the most distressing thing in this game minutes been building for weeks. Is that the defense just is not. It's just not even close to being there the front seven. Just not good enough. You know chase winovich was a guy who we thought was he was going to need to start and be effective especially once a high tower was coming back and he's still just a sub package guy and in that just goes on and on for different guys who out there in a playing linebacker for the first time. He made a lot of bear. Stugotz made a lot of errors. He can't cover. He doesn't know how to play in space. He's good going forward. But that's about it like it's just you know they just. There's so many things wrong with this team right now and you need to look at the bills and so many things are right with that team. You're just like you know. I bet tom you're watching that game. And you probably got really depressed watching the building and the patriots. And i understand. It's hard not to feel that

Not trying to fit a football into a small window is really difficult. And i don't think cam has come all the way back from kovin that but cam. We're not going to see cam twenty fifteen. Never gonna come close to. That can still be a quarterback who starts in the nfl. Is he a quarterback who is going to be a backup quarterback.

Which Gets You Farther: Talent or Effort?

"In college was not enough of foundation. The what does that even mean to map. Newtonian physics onto your concept of achievement. Okay so i took the simplest of newton's ideas remember in high school when you learned that distance equals rate times time. Sure and then you had to solve just a countless number of problems like a car is going seventy five miles an hour. It's traveling for and the idea was always like you get two of these and then you have to figure out the third one. So if you know the distance and the rate you have to figure out the time cetera but just taking that simple idea that distance he goes rate times time. I was like you know. Metaphorically human achievement is like distance when you say that. Somebody's really accomplish. They've achieved a lot. We really do. They've moved from point. A. to point b. and b. is really far from point a. And so then. I thought okay if achievement is like distance rate is kind of skill. Let's take freakonomics. For example you have a skill and then you have to apply that skill. So that's the time. So if i multiply your skill as a freakonomics producer times the amount of energy you put into it. I will get how much you accomplish. So skill is standing for rate and application of skill is standing for time. Is that right. That's right so if you want to achieve skill and you got to spend a lotta time doing it so that was the first like oh. This is kind of newtonian. So let's go back to your high school. You know cars travelling sixty five miles an hour. It's going for two hours. How far does again remember that. A car can go faster or slower. So it's not like the car is always going sixty five. In fact i say that the skill that you have is not fixed that you acquire skill that your speed as it were your rate actually can change over your life were generally it changes in the positraction right. You get more skilled. But then you're suggesting there's a whole other dimension which is how you apply that skill to your route to produce the greatest distance or achievement. Yes yes so imagine. Stephen is a car. okay you can make all the sound effects that you want. Wasn't there a disney movie where it's all cars. But they're like anthropomorphized. They talk to each other thing. It's called cars. it's the called cars. Well there is a genus name. Okay so basically. You are car stephen and you're not a car that has always been travelling at the same speed. Your skill in what you do is higher than it used to be. We start off in your little slower but then you learn some things and you've got faster. Okay i don't like your car metaphor. i'm sorry. I like you like this idea law. I am having a hard time imagining myself as the car. It's a bridge too far as it were honestly. I'm still trying to get the feeling of my wheels. It feels weird to be on wheels and the other thing is when i think about a car as the skill or the rate i think of a car is something that is getting slower and deteriorating from the minute you drive it off the law. Oh that is true. It depreciates fifty percent when you drive it off a lot. Yes i want to think about a different kind of activity. So let's make it a pursue some kind of achievement or goal or vocation. Whatever that i or some other person is serious about okay. Let's consider that you are an aspiring scientists. So i you're in high school and you certainly can't make any independent scientific contributions because you're still in high school and you hardly know anything then you get to and your knowledge is probably more complex and deep then by the time you get to graduate. School probably are on the frontiers of knowledge in your discipline. And you know how to run experiments in you know how to analyze data so you have accumulated skill as a scientist and my point. Is that if you have reached a certain level of skill where you really have a at contributing something you have to apply that skill. It's a trivial insight. But if you for example. Go to your post doc and then your third year of your post doc you retire. I mean actually can think of a few people that they reach a certain high level skill and they actually stopped producing or they effectively retire. That actually has happened a lot. Not just in science but really in every domain okay. Let's take my favorite gritty person. Will smith one of the reasons why i admire. Him is not just that he has reached a certain skill level in his acting and his general creative pursuits but every year that passes does more stuff and my point with this equation is that if achievement is like distance travel. It's not just that you want to be somebody who is skilled. But you actually have to apply that. And if you're like a wall smith and every year you're still grows but every year you're actually producing more stuff that's great. This reminds me of you know that famous old paper. It was taxi driver. Researched failure and kammerer and babcock and lowenstein remember that paper. This was about earnings and basically these economists found that when taxi drivers were having a particularly good day for whatever reason yeah. It was like raining and everybody wanted a taxi. Exactly that usually what they would do is once. They hit their target income. They would stop for the day. Yeah they satisfy. They satisfy rather than maximise whereas the economist argued. No if you're making a great rate

"I started the your next dive segment here on scuba Shack Radio a year ago as a way to talk about some of the great places to dive today is the 10th installment of your next dive off and we're going to complete our adventures in the Cayman Islands with a visit to Cayman BRAC where we'll stay at the Cayman BRAC Beach Resort and dive with Reef divers. As a recap we talked about the Little Cayman Beach Resort in episode 19, and then we went to Sunset house on Grand Cayman in episode 32. So let's explore the third island. My experience with the Cayman BRAC Beach Resort is a little dated. We had a shop trip their way back in October of 2006. So I'm guessing things maybe a little different job after fourteen years, but I'm also guessing a lot is probably the same. The Cayman BRAC Beach Resort is part of the clearly came and dive resorts that include Little Cayman Beach Resort and Cobalt Coast Resort on Grand Cayman off. This Collective of resorts is owned and operated by the Tibbetts family a prominent family in the Caymans since the Seventeen hundreds. First off Cayman BRAC is a little easier to get to than Little Cayman the Charles Kuykendahl International Airport located on the western end of the island package is very close to the beach resort and it has a Runway that's big enough to land 737 Jets. There are many more options to get to the Brock than the small twin otters flying the linkage came in plus the runway has lights so you don't have to worry that much about getting getting dark and that was an adventure we faced last year when going a little Cayman As I mentioned the airport is very close to the resort and you get picked up by The Resort staff for a short ride over. Now the resort has had some major Renovations since we were there several years ago. It sustained some significant damage from a hurricane. And from what I've read. It had to be almost completely built and it was finally finished in 2015. Today they offer 40 rooms. They're building is a two-story structure with all Beach and pool views with all the amenities you expect as for your meals. You have several options for different meal plans. I'm always up for the all-inclusive meals. I like not having to think about going out and finding a place to eat. That's not everybody's cup of tea. But if you do get the are inclusive me off and you won't be disappointed. Let's talk about the diving first. You'll be diving with Reef divers. It's the same operators as on Little Cayman. They tout themselves relay diving. They handle all the heavy lifting. Reef divers operates for Newton dive boats of 42 to 46 feet my favorite dive boat. They'd have big sister little sister ocean sister and coral sister. There are about in seventy named dive sites around the island and many of them are clustered around the Western end making for some short boat rides. Some folks feel like the diving isn't as good on the Brock or Grand Cayman as it is on Little Cayman for me. All three are fantastic and I would certainly not pass up an opportunity to dive Kathy Brock. Because it has been a while since I was there I went back to my log book to see where we drove. We did eighteen Dives on that trip. Now one of the things they do is a morning run off over the Little Cayman where you get to do two Dives on Bloody Bay wall. So you do get a little taste of the Little Cayman. I logged bottom temperatures for all the Dives at 86° Fahrenheit and that was in October and we routinely had dies between fifty to sixty minutes. We were able to talk to Dives on the MV Captain Keith Tibbetts the signature wreck our night dive was at a site called Elkhorn forest. And then we went back the next morning to dive the site during the day. That was pretty cool to see the difference. There isn't any shore diving from the Brock Beach Resort. But if you get the package like we did a 2018 Dodge is a pretty good week. Reading through the log book brought back some great memories and makes me want to go back. Let's hope the Caymans open up again early next year. So that completes our thoughts are of the Cayman Islands here on scuba Shack radios your next

I mean how you can make money right from your own podcast with no minimum listenership. It's everything you need in one spot in one place simple at effect. So get yourself anchor make voice her. Midnight Patriot, nation welcome to NFL. Mid Nitrates it is you boy spartan here with the the ever ever pot and flaming premix A good to have you as D to ultra. Sports nerds. In specifically football cards. On the end on the. Patriot staff. Phoenix tonight decided that we were actually GonNa do kind of a deep dive into what is pissing us off most about NFL and. Most pro sports in general to be quite honest. But we're GONNA focus on the NFL in this particular case because. Both Phoenix, myself have. A long history of both fandom and and. Playing Sports, we have a unique appreciation of what it takes. More it doesn't and how it is devolved into the into this shit show that it is. Just, we're just GONNA go from there. So Phoenix you had you had some thoughts that you wanted to start with go ahead. Well specifically. I I have a major gripe with the NFL in general. Being more politicized. And the. Let's End Racism. Okay, I get my left. Black lives matter. No sorry. They do and I agree with the message just not the manor which is being delivered. We've said that before on the organization go ahead. Exactly. All of a sudden you know we have a organization. That's Through much. Yup You can't do this. You know we have this. AFOREMENTIONED SCAMMED EMMA GOING ON. You can't do this. You can't do this. Well Yeah you can't. Okay. And then we have the social unrest of the nation being thrown into. A sporting. Venues. that. For All intents purposes let's call it. What is it's an escape. It allows us the viewer. Fan. That three four hours. Sunday evening Monday night whatever that. It gives us that escape from eager live love get up go to work and deal with people you come home you deal with cranky wife and kids don't listen dog that Shit's in your shoes. You've taken that away. And now have made it. Well we got to get on board with this. Well, we're relevant to. We're a large. Organization we goner? A multitude of platforms. That we have viewership. There any given? Day that we have competition So now we're going to. Paint messages in the end. We're going to have. Athletes will we're going to kneel to show solidarity. I got a huge problem with that and for our listeners I'm sure you have your own platforms as well. The American flag comes I stand for Gore country you back your country everything else second berry period. That's my thought on that. That's the way it is. Unfortunately when. The NFL NBA MLB hockey underwater basket weaving has become politicized in what we have to show solidarity with this. I have a question. Are you showing solidarity four? Message. Or are you As the NFL did let's put. The name of a known fell one on a helmet. Let's. Let's praise this guy because shot back when a an. Amplifier point in accused rapists. Is someone with a warning active warrants? For Rape Yes. So here in my eternal gripe with this, that will probably go down in flames just like the rest of them. Why are we? In fact. Standing behind. Someone. WHO BREAKS THE LAW? WHO does walk. Yes. They didn't listen. They got shot in the back whatever. House we say. Extenuating circumstances came to be that this ended up how that was. We have to stand behind this person as a form of. Instead of. Waiting, for all the facts that come out be proven beyond a shadow of a doubt. And then move forward from there. Well. That's the real question. Isn't it is is you know? All we've seen is what has been allowed to be released. Okay I mean look I think in his thing I agree with everything you just said save one thing. Okay. I don't think demand deserve to be shot seven times point blank in the back now. Having said that. He has an active warrant for his arrest, what he should not have done to prevent that whole situation was to surrender. Get handcuffed and be taken into to engage whatever process there is. Okay, you don't fight cops in the street if you do. You mess with the bull, you get the horns. Okay. He's admitted he was armed. He's admitted he was going for a different arm- armament. Okay. And what do we expect the COPS to die? I don't think so you know I'm. In the eyes of them, that's probably what they're saying. Well. Preserved by life fuck yours. Well exactly. The COP Exactly and and my my attitude would be y is either one wrong as far as you know, one one has a duty to behave professionally the other has a duty to follow the law. Or face the consequences you know it would have saved him from getting shot in the back if he had stopped if he turned around if he'd Toronto. Surrendered Okay Understand that I understand the Warren has has since been vacated, but that's beside the point. When a COP's his I warrant for your arrest I mean you're supposed to do is say what am I being arrested for? Okay I'll go peacefully ears might whereas my lawyer yeah. Instead, of no fuck you fight you tooth and nail, and if get away up the war still there, but you don't have me. Right. Exactly. Exactly and you know I got I got I got a I. got a interject because you know. My personal opinion is if you probably agree Is this. Cancer of case. started. It may have it may have had other sources. Okay. But its primary. Protagonist, in growth factor was Colin. Kaepernick a few years ago and I don't say that in a flattering manner. Okay. I've said it before the my opinion that Colin Kaepernick is the biggest fraud on the planet as pertains to the NFL. At least Ryan leaves when he signed what Leash Langley, when he signed, he knew he was shit approved the wish she had any faded off politely into the sunset because he saw a gay. young just tell the story as I. Recall it and you you you feel free to chime in when you. When when you when you if I'm off base okay. A lot of people don't remember this but you and I as King's football and many things in life have a have a memory quite a bit longer than than your average goldfish. Okay? I remember watching the first incidents of Cabernet court on code kneeling and he wasn't fucking Neil. He had just had an argument with his with with the head coach and I don't think it was Kelly. It may have been horrible. But he had the yard, the head, the argument with Joe it was horrible wasn't horrible yet. So out of you probably saw the clip to you can't find it now because it's Youtube everywhere else. He had he had A. Verbal altercation with Harbhajan and I can only assume in what we were told. You know later was that harbaugh. told him. No you're not starting a colon Cabernet got very unprofessional and like the diva quarterback that he is. Turn Turnhill stomped over to the bench slammed his helmet down in plop disaster down on the bench now by sheer and toll coincidence. Anthem had just started. The anthem it just started when that HAP-. ACI. I know you remember this is I think you and I talked about this at the time that it happened because we were mocking him because when I weren't weren't quarterbacks when we played the game and we know what divas they are even princesses, they are this. If you remember and I know you do espn headlines a couple of days. Later words were that Colin Kaepernick was going to be fine. Substantially for multiple instances of unprofessional conduct conduct deleterious to the team. Leading up to the altercation with harbaugh that happened where he plops his ass on the bench you remember that ideas that. Dakhla and it was it was post practice I. Believe I want a That later that week that a reporter asked him. About the state of the fines and Based on his lip based on. Let's just call it what it was temper Tantrum. Okay. And that's when Cabernet sold all this bullshit about he was doing it in protest etcetera etcetera and he played the race card, which we all know the press eats up hook line and sinker and never ever questioned. Ever On. Me It came across and partner Jackie No, you're good. The the instance of which we are discussing out my first thought on that was yes it's a temper tantrum and I'm about to be busted for having a temper tantrum. So allow me to make up some juicy. To Garner more attention to the fact that. This is happening to be Gimme Gimme. GimMe and I lost my starting spot. Well, that's the that's the point I'm making. He played the race card to avoid fight. For on professional conduct and he was he was outright given a past. I don't think he ever actually even actually got find something that was overlooked too is that is that nick is not a person of color is really not us he is a multi-racial okay and part of that find that he was going to get for unprofessional conduct was calling somebody else on the field the N. Word back can't say here because quite frankly it's feds even and number two I don't WanNa get show you monetize but that said that was part of that that was part of the fine to be levied. The fine was vacated. Okay. Because he was successful, you successfully played the race card and got out. Okay and this whole shift started this snowball at that point. as we as we all know you know he was he was basically the the the face man for chip. Kelly's offense that you know while short term short term effective was absolutely not sustainable. Okay. We all know that. And you combine that with the fact that the guy had. Just over just under a shooting just over sixty percent for completion rate. Even in that offense at his best day, he was a mediocre quarterback surrounded by a bunch of very talented people. Okay. So now it has become the fact that you know this whole narrative has has escalated by people that that know nothing about the actual game because. Football is simple. It's not easy, but it's simple. Is. The ultimate meritocracy. Okay talent hard work equals success. Okay there's a lot of guys. We can probably point him out on the field you and I. There's a lot of guys that that. That just simply outworked their competition to get where they are I'll give you. I'll give you one prime example and right now they call him the goat Tom. De. Tom. Brady was drafted was I can remember he was drafted. He was I. Don't think he was Mr irrelevant. But he was real close. He was the very bottom. Yes. Six he was very close to the very end of end of the draft in and he is he outworked is is competition. Now granted drew bledsoe. If people can remember back set for was not a very good quarterback anyways. He was only borderline better than Ryan Leaf and he went down Tom Brady took over in the rest as they say district but. No? One ever questioned, Tom? Brady's work ethic in those dynasty years in in in New England. Okay. Because he outworked he, he worked his ass off. Yes he was talented. Yes. He's physically gifted but that plus hardwork dedication to his craft turned into in the in the the hardware for the hand so to speak. and. anyways back to my point about Cabernet. All, these people talking about how Catherine doesn't have a job because he's bad for business or half rights, they're only half rice. Now I posted this to the page I know you read you probably it is I. Think I read this week we went to this is from ESPN DOT COM itself. Okay. ESPN DOT. com. The actual date this was published as March twentieth two, thousand seventeen. By their staff writer Kevin Seaford. and. I am just going to read it. I'm. GonNa. I'M GONNA. Try to read the whole thing. I'm trying Doug only try to read the parts that are relevant. But those those listening. If you go to our face, a bitch facebook dot com slash midnight patriots. You'll be able to find this article and we shared it the title of it is calling Kabir Knicks based problem performance. Politics. Day It starts off real simple. So Don't over think why Colin Kaepernick is still a free age simply put years have passed since he was ineffective quarterback he's twenty nine years old has succeeded in an unsustainable scheme as part of a well populated group of former starters who also remain available at as this week began now getting that was march twenty, twenty, seventeen. So they were in free agents. Okay. Let's. Let's move on here. It's blamed Colin Kaepernick's unemployment on his protest is to misread the way NFL teams make personnel decisions. that. I don't think there's any more true statement on Earth. Do you I? MEAN THAT'S Yeah. So it goes on protests where does say at any type of business that if you have lackluster performance, did you are guaranteed two hundred million dollar job? Number One and two I was GONNA say there have been divas troublemakers in the NFL before? Okay and Kim's and? Lewis Terrell on. You know. List goes on and on. And let's not forget the NFL is the lead cut an outright banned ray rice running back from the Ravens for domestic violence. Okay. Before he was convicted. Suspended A. Peterson for disciplining his child. Yeah for banking hit saw. Yeah. Okay for spanking his own child. Okay. So now they put criminals names on their helmet. so by but I digress I digress let's get back to the article. Just to just to go just to go. Teams are swayed I by players potential or lack thereof to help them win protest or not kapernick would be under contract. Now, if he had demonstrable if he had played demonstrably better in recent years. Let's look closer at where capper nick is as a quarterback and why that has left him sitting in a group that also includes fellow free agents, Jay Cutler Josh mccown Ryan Fitzpatrick and Robert Griffin the third. Again keep in mind. This is from shelvin teachings of this is three years ago. Okay. But. It goes on to some of the reason I liked this 'cause this is based on facts not just you know a bunch of race baiting bullshit. Kapernick grid NFL success came as part of the San Francisco Forty niners read Options Skiing Twenty, twelve to twenty four. In those three years, he rushed for Fifteen, hundred, seventy, eight yards which okay. I will give credit that impressive gudgeon impressive number. For. More than any other quarterback with the exception of Rush Russell Wilson Cam Newton so let's just call it what it is. He was third rushing quarterback against. It breath. Okay. I will not fall the net. His. Success. He threw more than twice as many touchdown passes interceptions helped him compile eighth best time quarterback rating in the NFL seventy point to over that period. But even then capper nick was one of the lease most. Least Accurate quarterbacks is sixty point one completion percentage ranked twenty third in the NFL and has percentage of off target throws judged on video by espn stats and information ranked eighteen. So. Based on just the stats alone he was a middle of the pack quarterback middle of the pack. Does that mean that he's better than half the other guys absolutely does that mean that that you know the drama he brings? Outweighs his skills is still setting the money in the monetary investment probably. Okay I agree or disagree just on that statement there. I would agree that yeah, he's a middle of the road quarterback. He had some skill. At. That position. That offense. You're right. Would it work somewhere else probably not but that's Changing teams, you learned their offensive scheme you learn what they do best blend yourself into that and you become part of the team not a one man show. that. I, mean you'd have to agree that most had coaches that have half a brain would go sixty, four, sixty point one completion percentage. even if you're even if you're going to do A. A bootleg offense even if you're going to do a boot offense. Play I can. Still going to have to be better than sixty point one. Periods I mean just entered discussion. Quarter, you're talking college level quarterback. Even if you're on a naked, do either one side, you're still depending on receivers tied ends backs to be open at some point that you can actually say, Hey, he's opened easel bewitched of the two weevils need a cheese her who exactly exactly union able to identify and hit those targets or at least give your guys in a position to succeed you know. I'd like to. Bring to Light I. Not Very long after capital started his quest masqueraded by some of justice whatever you WANNA call it only because he got in my mind and correct me if I'm wrong, he got busted out period. That's just the way it is you through Tantrum he got his ass busted will now I gotta cover with this to cover that with this, and then all of a sudden we have one big lie that snowball into the entire solstice thing that's going on currently. You're. Going to look they had to go. He ended up in Washington. In front of US rest. Explaining his side of everything that goes on great. Denver Broncos of whom I am a fan. I it. Does not get into that because. Pirate about that right. That's ultimate digression. Go ahead, John. elway. It had in fact offer Catholic before your contract. said. Hey. COMPLA-. Can come down because it wasn't enough money. Wait a minute. Let's look at your stats a sixty sixty point something or other completion percentage. Yes. You had fifteen hundred yards rushing, which as we've discussed is pretty phenomenal quarterback save. Russell. Cam. Newton. Maybe rg three hundred healthy. That's stretching it buttle throw it in there. Anyway. I. Really. Wanted to see if capital could be plugged into that offense and sell. Well, that's the that's the real trick. Isn't it? I mean? End and let's be clear. He turned it down because the salary was too low, not the money. Or maybe remember correctly, he turned it down because John elway wanted to load the one at the loaded up with incentives and say, okay, you exceed this mark you get ex you this you get what we go to the playoffs and when you get Z. Experience Cetera so wasn't of excellent. Yeah. But exactly to perform at your very best as cut your in the NFL, they don't take ship nothing while the that's when the NFL stands for not for lofts. That and let's be honest. It was not only. Did he had he had to meet performance criteria he had to me behavior criteria, EXAC? elway and the broncos weren't going to stand for this s J. W. S. J. W. Crap. That he's pulling. So let's go back to the article real quick. It'll it'll. It'll really start driving the point home. Okay. So I believe he started kneeling rating was two fifteen. So. Article Goes On. The issues that we were just talking about the increasing. Or decreasing completion percentage decreasing accuracy except sets. Those issues intensified in Twenty fifteen and twenty sixteen amid forty nine ers. Coaching turmoil in talent drain since the start of the twenty fifth season Kapernick ranks get this. Last in the NFL thirty five all five passers in off target percentage is off target twenty, two point six percent of the time which when she is the least accurate quarterback in the. League. As of the twenty. Fifteen. It goes on. Is Complete. Complete is completion percentage ranks number thirty, two at fifty, nine point one. He was still one of the NFL's most productive Shink quarterbacks, ranking number four total yardage over all those years but it didn't mitigate his passing deterioration and this is in my mind. This is the absolute most important line in the yard or ear and an adult. There is no more important attribute for quarterback accuracy especially for a free agent who is shopping himself teams with various schemes. In, the long term a quarterbacks running ability is considered a complimentary skill and one that is story. Fade with age or because of injuries, scrambling ability and arms drank are secondary to whether you can hit the target. That analysis backed up by numbers essentially wreck stay shit out of this current narrative will Cohen Governor never draw. Back. Dinners. Any beds no sorry. Have a fucking job because he sucks. Sex At what he does also, there's a theory going around the going around that it was right about twenty, nine, hundred he met his I don't know if she's still has girlfriend whatever evidently these ideas about radical justice one I'd ever definitely his girlfriend is, is some sort of radical s j w as well, and he was too stupid to either a lever to the side or be not listen door and just agree to disagree on stuff but then again. Go ahead exactly what it is. Power Pussy with exactly exactly and you quite frankly I can't fault them for that because you know that's ninety percent of marriages happen. We'll just we'll just leave at this point. Is that right there? That's You were saying regarding his ability to suck. But it started then I mean he the guy the guy got lazy. He got loud. Through the race card to cover his shit then he couldn't back up his mouth with performance. You know do you your ears? Rocco's fat okay. Let's talk about just a second. Let's talk about Shannon Sharpe just for ten seconds or for a few seconds. Okay. Shannon Sharpe. Is An arrogant prick agree or disagree now When I hang on, hang on that said. Shannon Sharpe liked to run his mouth about a lot of stuff at a lot of different times also true. Yes. Yes. Shannon Sharpe never failed toback his mouth up with his physical actions on field. Also. True. Unless I'm Clinton mistake, it have you seen the. I know he's A. He's a beast. His and by that, I, mean his physique and his skill level we're just unprecedented but you know I do I think running your mouth there's unprofessional Mind that you buy then back it up on the field nut so much. I mean. Go ahead. If I if I remember correctly now, remember this because there is significant events happened in my life sixteen nineteen. broncos are in the midst of the run to Super Bowl thirty two. Tonight game. In Kansas City in Kansas. City. I can remember. Watching a few days later because of recovering from surgery on. Shannon. Sharpe was literally being drug halfway across the field for most of the game by his helmet because he was talking some serious Shit Oh. Yeah. I. Remember Correctly Dr Thomas. If. If I get an incorrect Thomas Yeah. So. So pissed off the guy, he knocking, Kane insane composure in his professionalism in the game. You got what? I think. Say He lit it up. He was like Yeah. That's ten to twelve for. The Gargantuan One, twenty, one, twenty, six, and what two touchdowns. Yeah he was a month. So. All of a sudden sanders our. Love the Guy I've actually met him. Helvin individual. Love Tall. But he can copious amounts of Shit Oh. Yeah. Oh yeah that that man can back his mouth up. Oh Yeah. We have an and. He. End Let's let's break that down from an NFL perspective. So I'm a personnel manager. Okay and I have Shannon Sharpe as a free agent. His name comes across the wire I go holy Fuck Ball sharps available, and I already know that a he's allowed mouth be he likes to talk shit and sees extremely opinionated man but D-. The Guy Backs should have on the field I picked up the phone. I pick up the phone and say Hello Mr Shannon. Trump's lawyer her agent. This is me at the I would like to pay your your plant, a lot of money obscene amount of money to come help us when football game sets. Ended up with the. Exactly for whatever he was with the Ravens what three years. Say but he wanted them for four super bowl with their to. The argument that Colin Kaepernick doesn't have a job because Hashtag grace is complete an utter bullshit. Bullshit and the the fact that Roger Goodell has bought into this Shit Hook Line and sinker is even worse. Okay. You would think that that to be the commissioner of of a National League or National Professional Sports League that race in what eight to ten billion dollars. A year in gross revenue. You have. You'd have to have an IQ above your shoe size. Goodell even that these people that that they're they're professing to support. Social Justice. Wise. He realized that the vast majority of them do not watch the Games couldn't tell you five players in the league and doesn't even know couldn't name five teams lot I mean. She probably I mean. Look at some of the fan base. Did Not tell you the difference three, four, three defense. Yeah don't try to get him to describe the Tampa to. Exactly or various offensive formation. You're the simultaneous simultaneous possession roll which you and I can quote by heart understand completely. Exactly. Our guys we've got another segment coming up right after this brief break. Stay tuned. Midnight Patriot nations spartan with a shameless plug for our new gear shop shop. Dot. MIDNIGHT PATRIOTS DOT COM. T shirts, hats, hoodies, mugs, phone cases, and just about everything else in between we got you covered whether you're looking to embrace your insomnia, show your patriotism or make a liberals headaches blowed. Really, Shop Dot Midnight Patriots, Dot Com, and now back to the show. You know that's that said. I made a prediction in in midnight moment the last night moment and I want to run around wanted to run that by. Not. Only understand that the business portion of the of the game, but also the game itself. So this is going to the business portion now. One. Of the things that you and I both know is that owners very rarely. SAY WHAT THEY THINK Or say or reveal their plans in advance. Okay. I've noticed that the owners have remained. Suspiciously quiet. About the social justice campaign that's currently going on I do disagree with that. I mean like I said, I think Jerry Jones is really the only one that's actually made any sort of statement and it wasn't a very long. I ever Jones ever quiet. What that's that's my point. And say instead of instead of. Me thinks he protests too much. Me think she says nothing for more sinister Okay so I wanted to run this by this is my theory. Okay. Now we've confirmed the the the Monday night compal atrocity from last night. US. Or Susani from two nights ago that. We've confirmed that the viewership was down approximately twenty nine percent. Across the board in that double header. So if we take the two games Monday and the overall ratings of of being down for Sunday you're talking an average of of a twenty percent downer. It's one fifth of the audience of the television audience told the NFL the PISS off. Okay. Considering the the significant financial investment ESPN has for for the right. To. Monday night football. Let's just let's just call that loss unsustainable. Okay. So I am going to ask you to engage your owner brain for just a minute. Okay. So We're GONNA fast forward to the week after the Super Bowl's okay where things are notably notably quite Rosalie quiet. The coaching carousel began and things like that since. Day. Except that, there's going to be a rumor. Going to be a rumor. That the NFL that the owners are considering locking out the players because they want to renegotiate the contracts. And this will come as a surprise to dumb asses in the AT ESPN released. They're going to feign surprise. Okay. And we're going to start hearing things like while the coaches are not gonNa make anymore are putting hiring decisions are the owners are going to. Put a hiring decisions on pause for just We're going to review a few things and Blah Blah Blah. While then we're going to get to Russia's started free agency. And we'RE GONNA. Find out and it's probably going to be one of the one of the What's The guy's name? Remember his name. One of the reporters Schefter Adam schefter because he always breaks up he's. Probably. GonNa be schefter becomes. We have confirmed reports, the owners who are going to lock out the players affected nine am tomorrow or whatever. Okay. Now what's going to end up happening is this. The overall I would say, the overall revenue is going to decline somewhere in the area of twenty percent across the before the Lee across the. Across the season. Okay. Now again does just a prediction it might be higher. I hope it's higher until they stop dish this personally but. This is what's going to happen. You're going to get a massive ratings ratings cut. Even in the Super Bowl. Which means revenue is going to be down roughly thirty percents. Okay. What they're gonNA say is this is an unprecedented drop in revenue and the the losses are unsustainable. They're going to have to renegotiate the contracts. The players are GONNA have to take less money and this time the the ownership is going to be able to show concrete. The because of the drop in television revenue in Jersey sales and everything else. That they're going to have to renegotiate the contract. They're going to vote on removing Goodell as the commission. You're actually they're gonNA, they're gonNA end up forcing him out but the way it's GonNa play out this players are to get locked out. There's going to be a review of the deal of the of the current Labor Labor Agreement. The new agreement is GONNA. Have a significantly lower. Revenue Pool total that that the players are going to get. And they're going to have conduct they're going to have enhanced conduct policy which include the jewel stand for the national anthem. You will not hiding locker room for it. And you're going to we're going to not endorse anyone as far as any sort of political failure, your ideology on the field, and if you do not only will your contract be terminated but you'll be you'll be on the breadline by your suspended for a year. Now maybe the suspended for year won't come to pass but. Engage your own our brain for just a second and then look at the strike years that came up and you tell me how how how. Or how far I'll fight on that. Will. Allow me to. Dive into this plan I mean. Here we go. I am an owner of a NFL team. Meaning I have had to. Put Out. Let's use an arbitrary figure five hundred million dollars cash right upfront. Chooses five hundred. Half a billion. Cool. I'm. Glad. Yeah. Five hundred million dollars up front in order to gain my team have somewhere to play. The voted on passed and approved by the NFL. As either an expansion team whatever then. To, Cherry pick the other teams around here so I can build my team. In hopes that a I get a return on investment. That said if I'm going to dump five, hundred, million dollars out. A team equipment place play contracts that are stretched for X. number of years. This mice guaranteed this much at a signing bonus this much. Not. including the money paid to the team from the NFL for reaching a wildcard round, a divisional round championship round, and ultimately the Super Bowl. There are incentives paid to the teams by the NFL for attaining postseason plum. Yeah So that said with everything that goes on here. Currently we're martyring. Convicted felons we are. Using the NFL. As a soapbox. As an owner. would. Say? Okay. I can understand. The Point I understand where you're coming from I understand yes. Shit doesn't like this doesn't need to happen. It does there's nothing I can physically do about it personally except point out to you that you're not them. You are a multimillionaire more working your way to that point because of your talent, your skill and your ability play the game price. You as a athlete. well-fed well trained. Best shape, your ever loving life you have a house bigger than anything you've ever grew up in, you've got cars for days all these other things but. You need to remember that you are entertainer You're not a politician. So, that said. When to go into your point? After the Super Bowl. Until they actually have one right. That two weeks later, when everything's died down in the in the winter sprayed is over and losers or duck griping and the coaches players have made their way to their respective all. Wherever. That may be they're probably their private castles. Yes don't don't live in a castle guarded by you know dogs bigger than. Most people's. Cars. Were we will probably see as you said. Well you know revenue was down. Because of viewership is down across the board anywhere between currently twenty twenty, two percent to encroaching upon thirty percent. For Games you know TV, rights merchandise sales are going to be down. People are actively boycotting across those media and they're actually making their voice known by not watching. All of a sudden if we were to take thirty two current teams. And we look at. All the owners in this how much money they have? Now if we were to take thirty percent of total investment apart. As a conglomerate figure. We're talking a loss of probably and I would strong. Guess. Somewhere in the neighborhood of anywhere between two and two point, five, billion dollars while even go you want all you can go one better I think since the economy has basically picked up I mean you gotta remember the day to ten billion was during the Obama Konami which was one of the worst economies history. Okay. So that said you gotta figure that now it's probably going to be between ten and twelve. So if you have a twenty percent revenue law, if you have a almost thirty percent, you're talking about three billion dollars. That's a three billion dollar loss. So even if even if you spread that across thirty two teams, you're talking about what? Three hundred, million dollar loss per franchised. and. So and a lot of the smaller market. Good. So again, as an owner with Joan, arbitrary figure of five, hundred, million dollars starting I just lost seventy five percent of your or yeah of my revenue that I put into have an NFL team. Well, exactly. Well Number One and number two what anybody thinks that now? Okay. We all understand the cats at the revenue sharing For Those of us that are initiated, understand understand the the the reason for revenue. Okay. That's that's a given. Okay. Even still a thirty percent cut to that revenue devastates small-market teams devastate. Okay that's. Cleveland Cleveland Cambe that's Detroit. Well, I think Detroit is a bit bigger, but I catch meaning. into. Jacksonville. Flow? Buffalo Alright. That unders. Anyway. They're too big but no I hear you here's here's here's the thing the smaller market teams are going to move may if this continues maybe on the verge of bankruptcy and and if you really don't think that the NFL owners will lock out the players to avoid that. I just think everybody's so naive that they shouldn't even be a football fan you can. Football I in my opinion, these played the players and Adele are cutting the owners throats and I don't think the owners appreciate it number one and number two I. Think the owners are more in touch with their demographic their fan base style people want to believe i. don't say that they like their fan base because obviously as the executive class billionaires general ended the tend to hate working people or at least have a disdain for them. Okay. But the point being is that it's unsustainable model for them to go forward to continue this crap. Of K, it's it's absolutely ludicrous. So I think about beat that horse to death did you have anything to add on just on that? Final thought regarding that as an owner is a businessman I yeah exactly. Exactly. His businesses to? Yes he owns the team but as a business owner, you're always looking to. CRUISER BOTTLE BLONDE Increase but also you know they've got, they've got a commitment. You know what I mean I mean the bottom line is there are associated with raising revenue to pay Patrick mahomes half a billion dollars over the next. Seven years. Of. The point the point is this is that there are costs associated developing that revenue and win the players behavior or when when the when the the players union in the League encourages behavior that is deleterious to to that mission. Then what are the owners supposed to do? Gordon exactly. They locked the doors take resigning before we open this and then players you're GONNA WE'RE GONNA have to do a big restructure here. Sorry. You know this is this is not you? Not You know you're not this side of the world you guys are on the upper echelon. Of money you have succeeded in. On yourself up by your bootstrap for lack of terminology, you have made it playing a game that you love passion for three enforce your point duty not only are they a privileged class? Okay. Let I verified this I verify this last night. I made a statement that that. The NFL, the people on the NFL minimum as in rookies that that you know what we're undrafted free agents, right that are somehow made the squad, which is more powerful MAZAFA. A No experience. Rookie. Signed as a free agent this year in the League makes a minimum of six hundred, thousand dollars. Six hundred, ten, thousand dollars I then went to the Department of Labor's website guess what the average household income for Americans is as twenty twenty. Sixty, one, thousand, three, hundred. Yes. They working person would take ten eleven years to make. They're making six months show and this is not this is not an insult. I'm only going to use the label for for effect. Hacks in the NFL make ten times. The average working family does and they dare fucking lecture us about what our values should be faulk them. Big F what. Exactly. With a with capitalize all letters with with several exclamation points at the end. So that said I. Underlined and and I tell us is never. That's that said, I I wanNA give credit where it's due also understand that you know. What did I just go off on the NFL to you know to to to the end up with surprise we'll tell you why because You know even in the worst of situations, even even in the darkest night, there are rays of sunshine out gather are rays of light and I want to heap praise on two particular players, and these are the only two players. That I'm aware of have done this if any of you out there. Needed to midnight Patriot nation are aware of more please let us know. So we can give them their just desserts in their props. I want to give particular a credit to a hundred in the way of of the of the Pittsburgh steelers. Mr Villanueva is a former army ranger That said he made a big splash stirred shit storm by doing the right thing. I'm not going to get into the to the criminal that that the that the steelers. We're trying to honor Norma GonNa try to justify it didn't happen there but. Mr Vienna wave. Did something very classy He caped over the criminals name and he chose to honor sergeant first class all when cash. Now I believe I'm saying that correctly cut me some slack by brute if I if I. A brutalized his name that is not the intention. To say how I believe it's spelled. But sergeant first, class all, when. Cash. who was killed in Afghanistan? And I I, WANNA. I WANNA take. The chance to really You know he preys on on Mr Villain away for for going against the grain and for honoring in a true fallen hero on instead of instead of the criminal. So. Well on on that. The next one and probably the biggest honors of the latest give to the Jaguars tight tyler effort. I think I'm saying his name correctly also I don't think it's effort at the. But again, please forgive me if I've Jaguars fans if wrecked his name to. That being said that were I for also You know went against the grain he chose to honor the life of David Dorn David Dorn for those of you that that don't know was retired police officer. I believe it was Saint Louis. He. police chief Sir about that. He was retired police chief and he. was acting on behalf of a friend to go and check is Friends Pawn Shop. And he was gunned down he was killed Doing doing that by a felon in possession of firearm each shot this this legitimate euro From behind in the back of the head, which was incredibly cowardly act. ADORNS widow. was featured at the Republican National Convention. So those be the she told the heart wrenching story and As much as I am I gotTa tell you broaden orphee side, but he loved me misty. I was just her story about David's life was very touching and the impact on her family were simply crush. So I wanNA other drove I drove home the point. Your choice exact life exactly as what makes you? Exactly you know people people come from from bad situations and rise to great heights in as far as I know. This is the only country in the world that that can happen. Where you can make what you want of your own life. Okay. The biggest prison that we have in this country, the prison in our own minds. So A. Big Praise to do Mr Bean away and Mr for will done. I still have the continue my. My boycott because of my standards but you gentlemen have shown that there is a a ray of light in darkness. So Phoenix where you have anything to add or have we beat this to death. By by Pres for. There are people in the NFL that are serving of. Respect for me for one. Not because of their wallet or their house or their cars. But they chose stand for the national anthem. As. SOMEONE WHO Leaves in their country. Leaves in the American dream all though little hard to attain sometimes. The anthem regardless of anybody's political stance. The gentleman across the nation. And the NFL NBA MLB. I stand with you guys choose to stand in honour your country. That is. The way it is your will said. Anybody else wants that is your choice. I. Respect your choice I don't like it but I do respect it. But I stand with the gentleman who chooses stanton honor the country, the greatest country on this earth. Gives them every opportunity to excel in anything that they choose to? Like professional football or professional athletics exactly. I think it. I think it's worth mentioning here. I know we said we beat the source of, but I wanNA bring up another topic to. Weird Midnight Patriots all of us. May disagree with with what someone says, but we would fight to our desk to protect their their right to say those words. That being said I think one of the other things that the public is piss pot tired of is the privileged wealthy assholes. Being able to have different sets of rules at their workplace than we do. In the Corporate World in William and most smaller companies you do not have. You do not have freedom of speech. Okay. You will be shown the door if you bring up politics religion, etc etc. Okay. With social justice causes or otherwise. They can show you the door. Okay and I don't think I don't think it's Ok these. Use Their their platform on the field or in any way while a uniform to promote their agenda. Okay. Now, I think you and I would agree with this if the NFL Players Association wants to get together and host either a live event or televised event. when they are not playing and they're out of uniform. And they want to tackle these issues donate money to causes give away money whatever I think that would be a perfectly acceptable display. That's fine. Okay. But I think the reason they don't is they know that the cause is a loser. Okay. They're not willing to risk their own money you know to they're not willing to put their money with their mouths are in order to have their protests but but you know somehow everybody else should just shut up and and honor was they're trying to do and I think that that is excellent. You know policy at its finest end. America's PISS POT tired of turning channel I. think that's a big factor as well. As your thoughts unfortunately mean here to. Drive your point. I could see. Getting together having one big party fundraiser l. have running toe board. Hey, you know we're raising all this money great or even several. Yeah Go. But the reason but the reason they're doing it on television is because they can reach a mass audience all at once. But. They haven't had. They had the NFL network. If. The shows a winner, they could sell it to their to their allies in the media. WHO's to say ESPN would cover it. You know for God's sake ESPN has the SP one of the worst ward Joe's ever. Okay and if they want to go up to that into a social justice show fine. Go right ahead or create when like it again. Fine. Or if you know even Amazon or Netflix wants to pick up something about you know the S J W 'cause in the NFL an interview players follow players around their charitable work while they advance these causes grace go ahead I mean I think what they'll find his a there's no interest in be nobody cares they approach it that way that we far less backlash in their their incomes would be far safer than if they continue down this path. the ratings would actually come back to a more normal. That's where I'm talking about I. Mean there are only cutting their own throats by doing it the way they're doing it that that's all I have to say. So that's a wrap for this midnight. Mama we we went really long hopefully provided you get some insights, maybe some food for thought. Ob Spartan in Im with Phoenix, and we're just reminding you one last time in forever.

"To do through our premium product is give you the -bility to play anything. You want any playlist but also not make it so that you have to choose something because you may just want to let Pandora takeover and it does quite a good job at it and you can just sit back and let it play. Yeah, it, you know, it's I, I'm somebody who has always. Spend more inclined to the like lemme tell you exactly what I want to hear now school of thought. But I remember when Pandora launched and everyone I knew sort of fell in love with it immediately precisely because they didn't have to do that. So I think it's going to be very interesting actually to watch how your services evolves over the next couple years as you sort of try to understand your marketplace a little bit and and and how their own maybe tastes are evolving. So so you guys recently reported your earnings and you did very well, you beat an investors expectations, and I wonder if you could talk a little bit about sort of where where you guys are stronger now, maybe in ways that people don't realize and where you're able to earn more revenue. Yeah, we, we did. We did exceed expectations which was nice to do. It's actually the third quarter in a row since I've joined that, we've been able to do that and our subscription business grew sixty seven percent year over year. So that was a clear winner in this quarter, but also our ad suppo-. Business was very strong. One of the things I think that maybe some people may misunderstand about Pandora's, they think about free services as just as a funnel for paid, and clearly that's part of what we do at Pandora. But actually the majority of our revenue seventy percent of our revenue is advertising and are ad supported products actually have better margins since subscription. It's a really good business for us. It's also, I think, increasingly, strategic and the reason I say that is if you think about where most music listening happened still today, it's still radio. It's not Pandora, it's not. I mean pen or is the largest of streaming. But radio still has a massive audience and it's still a very old technology amidst broadcasters personalization to it. There's no on-demand interactivity. The ads are all broadcast not personalized. That's right. For change. And if you want to migrate the hundreds of millions of people who listen to radio every week to streaming service, will you better be good ads because that's..

"I'm Casey Newton back after an unexpected week off, and I can't wait to tell you why my guest today is Roger Lynch CEO of Pandora. It's one of the most familiar names in music. And yet if you're like me, you might not have listened to Pandora in a while. Why is that? I wanted to talk to Roger about what he's been up to their. He took over as the CEO of Pandora last September after serving as the CEO of sling TV before that he worked at the dish network. This man loves his media, but I and speaking of media, you may have noticed that last week's episode of converge went missing, which I feel a responsibility to address as the host. So you know the way we do things here on converge is people agree to come on the show, and then we trust that they will honor their commitments as adults and last week, a couple of hours before the recording sash our guest who. Was the co, founder of a blockchain company called circle cancelled it when I say cancelled, did he call me? Did he send me an apology? Maybe an edible arrangement? No, yet as PR agency, send me an Email to say that he wasn't coming. So on one hand, I'm very disappointed by this because for the entire life of converge, all I wanted to do his bring y'all a blockchain episode and then Sean Neville of circle dashed those dreams. Now, at the same time, the rules of converge a very simple if you fail to show up for your schedule, appearance you forfeit, and that means Sean Neville. You've done something that many people believed would never happen, especially in our first season, you have lost a game of converge a show in which simply showing up all but guarantees victory. And so now until the end of time, you will sit at the bottom of the converge leaderboard with a sq. Score of zero, which will hopefully serve as a warning to all other guests who might consider cancelling on me at the last minute and yet to look at it from yet. Another perspective, perhaps to look at it from the bright side. That means that I am the winner of last week's game of converge huge. Congratulations to me. I have now won as many games of converged as anyone else in the history of this podcast. Andrew, I'm hoping you can play some celebration music underneath this part of the show. Maybe some fireworks people glowing. Those party buzzer things, but enough about that. We still have two games to play this season. Will anyone else lose? Actually, someone else does canceled on me today. So yes, someone did, but we're not going to talk about that right now. We're gonna talk about Roger Lynch and Pandora band, or it was one of the first streaming services I ever used, and it was amazing back in the day before I tunes even existed, you could fire up Pandora at your desktop at work and listen to a wide range of music that was personalized. To you, but then I came along and then Spotify came along in Pandora's started to lose listeners. So last year they brought in Roger in an effort to figure it all out. And as you'll hear in the episode, the business part of Pandora is still pretty strong, but how do you navigate a big company like this into the future? I think you'll be interested in Rogers answers, and it is now time to play converge..

"I'm going to have to check after we're done recording, but we always try to break a lot of news. It's not news is the information that I'm getting. All right. I'm going to keep trying. So, but, but that must be a milestone to get to the point where you are running these sort of active tests. Although if you're out in the real world, maybe being out on the streets of Las Vegas is a bigger milestone. I think it's a great milestone for network. And again, that's I want to make sure everyone knows that it's actives vehicles and it's amazing tech. So that's like their big milestone on their capabilities. And then in level five, we've, we've done a lot in in less than two years and we have over two hundred employees down in Palo Alto working through this. We've got cars, we're doing tests, you know, like I said, with Ingo mental, we're very excited with the progress of of that group. So what's the next step? Like what's the next big milestone? Where like when you hit that your bosses is gonna be really excited with you on this podcast? Yes, we'll check right. We got done the the other one just really comes to capabilities of the vehicle. And so you can imagine if you want a car driving itself, you have to. Slowly and surely evolve through that one would be think of it as lane guidance. Then you could think of car following these technologies exist today in other vehicles. I mean, you've seen the adaptive cruise control. There's there's lane following as well. So these are all pieces of capabilities that that we have been testing that we will continue to test and you'd want to start to do that on public roads and over time, you know, you're going to add additional functionality that you're gonna. Wanna test could be how you take turns to changing lanes, two intersections. These are all things that to me are are milestones that you know this, this team is working on, right? I think you're CEO has said that he expects that this service could be available in a in a broader capacity by twenty twenty one is that still target. Generally speaking, we want to be twenty twenty one and beyond is where we're targeting. I can't be exact on dates. I mean, even in the world of self driving, no one's actually cracked it yet. Right? Like we're still all looking at the problem. It hasn't been fully solved. And so that's that's the general line of sight. But it really depends on where the technology is, how much of it is a problem of not enough data has been collected versus a problem of we have to create actual technological breakthroughs. That's I don't think it's known yet. I think it's a little bit of both. So data doesn't hurt meaning. I think we should continue to collect and the more confidence that we have the more miles scenarios validations that people can do on the software, the better. And then I think in parallel, you want to continue to see improvements in technology both on the hardware and software side. And if you think about it, like if you're a driver, we talk about the modes of not the modes, like the components of self driving. You've perception, localization path, planning, motion, control, and all of these, you know we could. We could continue to see some improvements path plannings. A great example. If you or I taking a steering wheel of a car, there's a lot that we think about when we're driving. I'm already looking at the car in front of me. I'm sometimes in the rear view mirror looking at the cars behind, I'm thinking about the behaviors of the drivers around me. I'm all the time thinking about what's the optimal area for my car. Hell close. Should I be to the car in front of me to what's happening on the side, all of this stuff needs to be programmatic..

"My my belief is that when you no longer after as five million dollars to start a company anybody can raise their hand into hair themselves an entrepreneur and it used to be you know you had to be validated by the people with five million dollar checks to right and because it was gonna cost you that much to like build a server farm to your business now people just go to aws that's right and when it when it costs five million dollars to start company the capital markets have a lot more power in deciding who who found her is and who who won isn't and so i started to think about it i was like you know this isn't just about the fact that you're going to have lean startups and it's not just that five hundred thousand five million but innovation itself is about to become democratized and what we need to do is is embrace that trend play offense with respect to it and so that's why it was so important to start this with an and so i thought well if we were genderdiverse from day one we would operate as a gender diverse firm and not have to kind of retrofit it after the fact we don't talk about it that much publicly because we think that the best way to make a statement is just win and if we win and if other firms say you know how are we gonna compete with floodgate because likely a bus give task grab it she's going to walk into that place and she's going to look at those partners and say these are my kinda peeps and if you believe that there's going to be more diane greens if you believe that there's going to be more heather brunner's like at wbz engine and if you believe that innovations can be democratized i'd like to play offense and and just win and then that's i think how you get more women in the business is to say i don't think we can win without operating that way and so so that's that's what we try really hard to do and so far i think it's it's really been helpful in terms of how we valuate investments how we treat each other meetings how we just how we offer it as a firm yeah lots of nice hopeful note to end the interview round on but if you heard that noise that means it's time for the lightning round okay boy in the lightning round your job is answer as many questions as you can and sixty seconds you are allowed to pass but should you do so you will forfeit the question i should say it's relatively rare to pass on any of these questions okay let's put sixty seconds on the clock what is your favorite trait in an entrepreneur persistence vision i only ask for one but i will accept that answer hint water or lacroix in preferred flavor berry how many pitches do you get a week that i take meetings with or just come in to just come in about one hundred what's something that should definitely be on the block chain speed speed speed emme methamphetamines you care about virtual reality yes is a over hype under hype or appropriately hyped appropriately hyped you invested in weebelow and check why didn't you convince them to change their names something respectable because they worked is there the lascaux you finished on netflix kit thinking one last book you read oh gosh last good book you have five seconds left super forecasters if google duplex calls you do you think you should let it know that it's a by no time expire that answer doesn't count all right ten questions means ten points so we'll put ten more points on the board actually very good showing and they'll lightning round as well and now it's time for the wild card round the wild card round we reach into the convergence ron five thousand to play game generated by some of the world's most sophisticated algorithms earlier today we selected retro pitch and this will be the first time retro pitch has been played outside the verge cast where some of you may have heard me play that game with neil patel and paul miller as a tease to this very podcast now in retro pitch mike you will draw from a deck of cards to select an idea that is obvious only in.

"It's spam that is a real spanishlanguage spam i don't know why spammers are emailing me in spanish maybe they know that my accent is that good but what can i tell you so with that is now your turn to give me an email subject line suspicious activity in your account the body the message hi mark we've detected suspicious activity in your account comma and that it has the account someone else might be using your account click here to secure your accounts i mean that's very very authentic i guess the question is is it so pedestrian that you assumed i would just believe it was spam even though it was just easy fake spam for you to create but i'm gonna go with span this is no ma'am but sort of a trick question because how would you know and the point is on these messages were no longer seeing all of these ridiculous examples in high volume what we're seeing instead is things that boost the exact template from legitimate message just changing the destination of the link all right we'll fair enough while i can't believe it but we're still tied at one this game has proven to be one of the most difficult we've played in the history of converge and that brings us now to message number four free mark subject line going out of business scarves dot net the message scarves dot net is going out of business we're liquidating our entire inventory of scarves at a ridiculous clothes out price just five dollars per scarf that is up to eighty eight percent off this is no joke will judging by people on the radio can't tell but the infinity scarf you've been wearing for this interview i have to seem you are an aficionado of many types of scarves and probably a skype dot com frequent shopper.

"Advent of machine learning and looking at really big data and looking at it in a place where i think we can all agree there's we have a common enemy that we're interested in fighting so there what the issue is is saying each of these messages have something in common but it's difficult to find what it is let's let computers try to find these patterns across the broad broad feature space right what's interesting there is that it works really well when it works and it fails in very interesting in very different ways when it doesn't one of the biggest challenges with machine learning is you throw it explain ability people would come i've had frequent escalations from friends and families and other people around all these different companies where i've worked on this or they say why did you put this message in the spam folder or conversely why is this in the inbox and if you ask the machine learning all you find is that it was eleven hundred six units from the decision boundary and an end dimensional hyper cube or it's because the fourth word on the seventh line to have two miles and that's typically anomalous neither of which gives people any sort of comfort and never really you what to do after pause there 'cause like this is this issue is so much more broadly applicable than email you know like so explain abilities or the shorthand by which we refer to the ability of any algorithm to tell us why it made a decision that it made right yes and it's something you know that that you can see all over the virgin and in some of my writing about what rhythms are doing and man it's a problem because increasingly we're going to be relying on algorithms to do all sorts of things in our lives and i would love it if we could get to a point where we could will the algren the countable and say like hey i subscribe to that newsletter right why did that show up in my spam folder that's right and that's the challenge with pattern matching that's the challenge where we talk about artificial intelligence and our company has done some amazing fantastic things but there are many naive implementations of the systems that are dumber than a three year olds like they're really just doing crude pattern matching institute.

"And then the third vector that we look at is in product changes that we can make so for example one that's top of mind is if you're a subscriber to it's a free program but if you opt into the advanced protection program then the attachment semesters you receive in g mail go through a more thorough more deep antivirus and malware scanning and that's because that's another vector where people can fall victim and the ideas that by packaging these three groups together the secure access with security keys the third party access through through the oath white listening and application locked down and the third category which is the in product enhancements that we really are able to give you a much much stronger much more confident place to be right and in so doing deliver what we think is warranted if you're at that that upper echelon of risk or impact right so if you're if you're listening to this and you're a high profile person or your drunk this is something to look into and i will be looking into it more so to row wrap this up you started by saying everything we know about passwords is wrong like i i think a lot of people are enlisted us and say well like okay mark like what do i do so so can you give them maybe the two three sentences about what to do if they've been maybe a lack a little bit lax in their security up to this point i'm tempted to frame it like michael paulin with like you know eat food mostly greens actually make a lot of money they've done that i thought head and now i've set myself up even higher the advice would be if we scope into passwords but it really is is use a password manager distinct ones on every site and do it automatically all right very good that brings us to the end of the big idea around and it is now time to scoring mark let's talk about originality listen telling me everything i know about passers is wrong that came as something of a surprise because again it's a minute thought about a long time so i have to give you a solid seven originality because i feel he brought a lot to the table particularly for people presentation i appre.

"Group of people activists journalists politicians celebrities etc we created the advanced protection program and we have really three anchors to that product that make it so that you're really getting the best and the strongest protections that google can offer the first one ties back to something you said earlier which is multi factor authentication this one we go far beyond sending a code your telephone and actually require a physical device we call it a security key and it's just like the key to your house you either have it or you don't have it and when you put it into the computer either by plugging it into a usb port or we now have ones that are wireless that you can press a button or hold against the back of your phone it does to really interesting things one is that better than a password exchanging a very lengthy cryptographic key but even more importantly it changes the whole fishing dynamic with fishing if if your user familiar with it you probably are thinking you land on a website that looks like the log in page for your bank and their subtle differences there that if you're paying attention you might notice it's not maybe the url is wrong maybe the logos the old one maybe there's some you know broken english and the description but if you're not paying attention you just blindly go through into this to the user the person has to recognize is this the right site or not before typing in his or her password with the security key model we flip that around and essentially the website has to prove to the security key that it is the right one otherwise it can't get the passwords so there's no way for the user to make a mistake you can be drunk off your mind with your eyes closed not paying any attention and still it's the browsers talking securely to the device to the security key and that's where the exchanges taking place right so there's actually sort of a new category of people who might be interested in this product is drunk people we've should have included them as well so activists celebrities and yes those who are although it's hard to go out and buy security when you're drunk so maybe planted advance planning on having a big weekend.

"Exactly so i imagine you might have ideas about maybe a better way of approaching the password problem absolutely and there's a few different sequences for this or steps along the sequence for this the first is you know we google and many other companies have realized that these complexity rules really aren't helping anyone and in fact there counterintuitive so part of what people don't realize is wrong is that making a longer and longer more complicated password that's harder to remember leads you to be more likely to reuse it in every site and so making it arbitrarily complex actually works against your goals a second problem that we see there is people work sites work and you see this oftentimes with government sites and financial sites that they sign you out automats after just a few minutes with that leads to is that you're just blindly typing this thing in again and again and again on google we've actually taken the opposite approach once you sign in it's very rare we're gonna make you type the same password again on a single machine and so when you do so it should feel special it's a special moment it's something you should pay attention and notice what's happening that's interesting so if you're doing it all the time you're more likely to fall for one of these phishing scams exactly you kind of become blind to the the variations of that you could think as an example if a website asks you to scan in your birth certificate you would really stop and think about that but if they ask you to just type in this muscle memory eight letter password you're gonna do it again and again and so you don't notice these clues and the subtle variance that might be indicative of something bad going on right so you know i've i tend to pat myself on the back for using a password manager i have created a unique password for almost every single thing i've ever logged into by this point is that buying me any level of protection or do you still look at that now i still no way to get into your account that's absolutely helping that's a good thing and that's the third piece of advice that everyone gets wrong which is for well intentioned reasons twenty thirty years ago they said never write down your password and it is true that there are some threats that happen when you've got.
