Multiple Publishers Apparently Considering Raising Game Prices on PS5 and Xbox Series X

"Other. Arkansas my favorite topic public publisher, other other publishers are considering raising their game prices for PS five in xbox series x this Chris Ring at Games. Biz other game. Publishers are considering raising their prices of games for the PS five expertise x says games. Research firm ID, G. Consulting. It follows the news that NBA case when he won which you talked about yesterday we priced at seventy dollars on the next gen consoles ten more ten dollars more expensive than it is on the current devices speaking with games. Industry Dot Biz I G president and CEO. Yoshiko Ozaki, says that game pricing has remained flat since two thousand five whereas TV and movie pricing has increased significantly. The last time, but next GEN launch software pricing went up was in two, thousand, five and two thousand six, when it went from forty, nine, ninety, nine, fifty, nine, ninety, nine, and these are US dollars at the start, the Xbox, three sixty and the three generation. He says during that time, the cost in prices and other affiliated verticals have gone up and quote. Asaki says that next Gen consoles. Next Gen. Console game production costs have increased by two hundred percent. Have increased by two hundred percent to three hundred percent, depending on the IP studio and Genre, but the prices have remained at fifty, nine, ninety nine, meanwhile cinema ticket prices have have risen thirty nine percent netflix subscription costs have gone up one hundred percent in cable TV. Packages have risen one hundred and five percent. Even with the increases to sixty, nine, ninety, nine for an action that price increase from two thousand and five to two, thousand, twenty, twenty Nexgen is only up seventeen percent far lower than than the other comparisons while the cost of developing in publishing have gone up and pricing and other entertainment verticals have also gone up substantially next. Gen Software pricing not reflected these increases fifty. Fifty nine, ninety, nine to sixty, nine, ninety nine does not even cover cover. These other costs increases completely, but does move it more in the proper direction. He continues quote. IDC works with all major game. Publishers in our channel checks in our channel checks indicate that other publishers are also exploring moving their next Gen pricing up on certain franchises for the same reasons outlined above. Every. Not every game should garner the sixty nine ninety nine dollars price point on Nexgen, but flagships flagship triple as as NBA Two K. Merit this pricing more than others and quote.

U.S. Unemployment Rate Fell to 11.1% in June

"The president wasted no time heading to the cameras to the record jobs gain in June. There's not been anything like this record setting shattering all expectations, our economy is roaring back. It's coming back extremely strong. These are all historic numbers. A record never had a number like that an all time high think of that that's the largest increase in the history of our country. That's a tremendous number a phenomenal number so these are numbers that are not numbers. Of, the presidents would have. This has been a tremendous success. We've done an incredible job we've done a historic thing likes of which nobody has ever seen before in my opinion. Donald? Trump got to use all the superlatives today talking about the job number, but it's important to look deeper into those numbers. CNBC points out one big contributor to the decline in the jobless rate was those returning to work from temporary layoffs? This comes as a new report from the Congressional Budget Office that says the unemployment rate is expected to stay above pre pandemic levels through. Through the end of twenty thirty worth US more, we welcome to the broadcast policeman senior economics reporter with our sister network CNBC. In an old friend of Mine Steve. Great to see you. Thank you for being with us. I mean it kind of was humor listening to the president as I said us all the superlatives, because there's a big piece of context here these are. These are jobs in many cases that people were not working at. As opposed to the creation of new jobs. These aren't jobs created and what the president has missing. There is the historic job losses that happened just a couple of months ago. That were multiples of the jobs that have been brought back in fact alley. I think the best way to think about this. As it was really a bittersweet number, the president was right. It was several times. It was just about double the expectation for point million. It was indeed a record, but let's just do the math. We've lost twenty two million jobs since the corona virus hit the US economy. We brought back seven. Seven and a half million, so everybody can do the math at home. That's fourteen and a half. Million jobs still not return. We brought back about a third. It's a bit quicker, but the other bittersweet part about this thing Ali is that with these renewed shutdowns? You have two things going on. You could have businesses that have shut down and won't we open now? Because of these new infections, but you have businesses that didn't even close before because those places were not affected by the virus, and those workers unfortunately could join the ranks of the unemployed. Let's talk about the more important thing that people like you. And I think about, and that is structurally what has happened to the job market? How much has been destroyed? That won't come back when we return to some version of normal the the the the congressional. Budget Office talks about not getting back to these particularly low unemployment rates that we were at before coronavirus until twenty thirty. That seems uniquely pessimistic, a lot of people talking about two to three to four years. How what does that look like long term return to normal? The best forecast I've seen have been my two or three years. I think that the CBO is extremely pessimistic. But we're looking for Ali is something that economists are now calling scarring in other words we've we had a lot of people. Go on temporarily. A lot will come back, but for some of these places the business may not be there anymore. The job may not be there anymore. On the plus side, there may be new jobs if people continue to get more stuff online rather than in retail stores, but. But some of those retail stores they may never reopened some of the restaurants. They can't survive at fifty percent capacity until we go back to one hundred percents of there's going to be scarring the economy. The extent of which I think the CBO may be too pessimistic, but the idea that we're going back to the way. It was a couple months ago. In short, order is almost certainly to optimistic. Stevens. I know it's something you think about it. Because I know you talked about it a lot of CNBC. How do you reconcile the record stock market performance? We're in very strong territory of Martian popped into earth and looked at the stock market. They'd say all our problems are over. Well it's something that you know. If I had another eyebrow I'd raise that up, but and if I could raise them higher than my forehead. I would do that, too. It's a curious thing to watch. There is an awful lot of the liquidity from the Federal Reserve. In the system. Interest rates are very low. If you're looking to have a return on your money, you can't do it in the charter market. You've gotta go into stocks I think that's one thing. I think there's a belief among some among many investors right now that the economy will return something normal in short order in a six month or one year timeframe. So I think those two things kind of combine the other thing Ali is if you look certain stocks have done very well and pushed up these indices, but some of the stocks and some of the industries that we've been talking about. Have not done well ahead of not come back, so so the market is correctly I. think discounting that and this changed economy that we're gonNA half example with the airline. Airline, so it is curious to watch this market think that things are going to get better as quickly as I think. The market's a little bit optimistic when it comes to discounting the uncertainty of this virus, and as you know Ali, the Fed has been all over this idea saying, wait a second. We don't know if this thing's GonNa come back and I think they've been proven right on that score.

More states halt reopenings as COVID-19 cases surge

More states halt reopenings as COVID-19 cases surge

"When the first corona virus cases appeared in Chicago back in January they bore the same genetic signatures as a germ that emerged in China weeks before. But HIS EGON Oser an infectious disease specialist at northwestern examined the genetic structure of virus samples from local patients. He noticed something different. A change in the virus was appearing again and again this mutation associated with the outbreaks in Europe and new. York City eventually took over Chicago by May. It was found ninety five percent of all the genomes that he sequenced. At a glance, the mutation seem trivial about thirteen hundred amino acids, service building blocks for a protein on the surface of the virus in the mutant virus, the genetic instructions for just one of those amino acids number six fourteen switched in the new variant from a D. which is shorthand for. Asset to a G, which is short for Lycene. But the location of that mutation was significant because the switch occurred in the part of the genome that codes for the all important spike protein. The spike protein is the protruding structure that gives the corona virus. It's crown like profile, which also gives its name the crown virus, and allows it to enter human cells the way a burglar picks lock. And Its ubiquity at this point is undeniable of the approximately fifty thousand genomes of the virus that researchers worldwide have uploaded into a shared database about seventy percent carry the new mutation, which is officially designated as D, Six fourteen g, but known more familiarly to the scientists on the front lines of this fight by one letter. G. G. Hasn't just dominated the outbreak in Chicago. It has taken over the world and now scientists are racing to figure out what it means. And how to stop it to of Our Star Science Writers Sarah Kaplan Join. Reported at least four lab experiments suggest that this mutation makes the virus significantly more infectious, although none of that work has yet been pure reviewed, another unpublished study led by federal scientists at Los Alamos National Laboratory asserts that patients with the g variant actually have more virus in their bodies, making them more likely to spread it to others. The mutation does not. Does Not appear to make people sicker, but a growing number of scientists worry that it is making the virus more contagious. The scramble to unravel this mutation mystery embodies the challenges of science during the coronavirus pandemic with millions of people infected in thousands dying every day around the world, researchers strike a high stakes balance between getting information out quickly. And making sure that is right. The burglary analogy is when I found very helpful, because it really helps conceptualize what this virus is doing to our bodies, Joel likes to say that the coronavirus can be thought of as an extremely destructive burglar, unable to live or reproduce on its own. It breaks into human cells in coops, biological machinery to make thousands of copies of itself that leaves a trail of damaged tissue and triggers an immune system response that for some people for many people can be fatal, the so-called side kind store. This replication process is messy, even though it has a proofreading mechanism for copying its own genome, the coronavirus frequently makes mistakes. Those are the mutations. The vast majority of mutations have no effect at all on the behavior of the virus. But? Few genetic mutations could be more significant than the ones that affect the spike protein. That is the viruses lock pick the most powerful tool against us. The protein attached to a receptor on respiratory cells, called as to which opens the cell and let's the virus slip inside. The more effective despite protein, the more easily the virus can break into the bodies of its hosts, even when the original variant of the virus emerged in Wuhan China. It was obvious that the spike protein was already quite effective. But, it could have been even better. The spike protein for the coronavirus has two parts that don't always hold together well when you look at it under a microscope in the version of the virus that rose in China the outer part, which the virus needs to attach to a human receptor, frequently broke off equipped with this faulty lock pick. The virus had a harder time invading Ho cells. Studying both variations of the gene, using a proxy virus, in a Petri dish of human cells heireann show a virologist at scripts. Research found that viruses with the g variant had more spike proteins in the outer parts of those proteins were less likely to break off. In that research. The virus was ten times more infectious with that mutation. The good news is this. The mutation does not seem to lead to worse outcomes for patients, nor does it alter the viruses response to antibodies from patients who had the D variant? Suggesting again? This is great news that vaccines being developed based on the original version of the virus will be effective against the war infectious European strain. Identifying, emerging mutations allows researchers to track their spread, knowing what genes affect how the virus transmits enables public health officials to tailor their efforts to contain it wants therapeutics vaccines are distributed on a large scale. Having a baseline understanding of the genome will help pinpoint when drug-resistance inevitably starts to evolve. None of this unfortunately is a magic bullet, but experts say that understanding how the virus works will help respond better. Still, it's a race against time. And Right now. The virus is winning. And, that's the big idea. Here are three other headlines that should be on your radar. This Tuesday number one. US deaths are approaching one, hundred, twenty, five thousand. We expect to pass that number today and the total number of confirmed cases, here's top two and a half million amid worsening outbreaks in Florida, Texas and Arizona that are straining hospital capacity to the Limit Jacksonville, the largest city in Florida and the host to the Republican National Convention in late. August announced that masks will now be mandatory in public and indoor locations. Vice President Pence plans to go ahead with plan travel this week to Florida and Arizona, even though cases are spiking, but Arizona Saul another record, high and hospitalizations days after trump visited the state for a raucous indoor rally where almost no one more mask. Florida's Rolling Seven Day. Average has risen by one hundred percent since week ago. Trump's former FDA commissioner Scott gottlieb warned last night. Night that the surging number of cases could result in nearly half our country infected with the virus by the end of the year and overall deaths are likely to return to more than one thousand per day. He predicts in fact, the number two at the CDC, told the Journal of the American Medical Association yesterday that the US. has quote way too much virus to be. Be Able to contain it anymore and shoe cat said that we're no longer in a position like New Zealand or Singapore. South Korea, where new case can be rapidly identified, and all the context traced and people are isolated or sick and people who are exposed or quarantined, and that's how you keep things under control. She said instead. We have way too much virus across the country. Country for that right now. She described herself as very discouraged and added. This is really the beginning I think there was a lot of wishful thinking around the country that hey, it's summer. Everything's GonNa be fine, but she added that she seemed quote a lot of worrisome factors over the last week or so and added quote. We are not even beginning to be over this. And, we're seeing that on the front lines. Los Angeles County health officials have issued a dire warning in the last twelve hours that conditions are rapidly deteriorating in the nation's most populous county as the virus spreads quickly, officials are warning that both public and private hospitals in the city of angels may soon be overwhelmed leading to triage. One factor that's alarming leaders in southern California. Is that corona virus patients are crossing the US Mexico border to seek medical care. Now, a lot of Americans seeking treatment. But the head of California's Emergency Medical Services Authority describes the stream of patients crossing the border back and forth as quote pouring gasoline on the fire. Arizona Governor Doug Ducey pushed back his plans to reopen public schools and has banned gatherings of more than fifty people. He also has closed down bars, nightclubs, movie, theaters and water parks. All of which he recently reopened as we discussed last week warning residents that we can no longer be under any illusion that the viruses going away on its own other hard hit states, including Tennessee and Georgia have put in place new stay at home. Orders extended them. There are so many unsettling stories just popping up across the country that it's hard to keep up more than two hundred people in West. Virginia were advised yesterday to quarantine after possibly being exposed to the virus will working out at a gym. New Jersey. Governor Phil Murphy says plans to allow indoor dining or are going to be postponed indefinitely while New York Governor Andrew, Cuomo says his administration is reconsidering whether indoor dining can restart safely. New York City next week, which was going to happen as part of its phase three now this is a big blow for restaurant owners in the tristate region who've been preparing to reopen by hiring staff that they'd laid off and restocking their inventory as they teeter on the precipice of bankruptcy, a lot of that food may now need to be thrown away and Broadway's main theaters all said yesterday that they're going to remain shuttered until at least January and probably longer.

Laverne Cox: Fighting for Trans Lives

"I want to start with your Time magazine cover if that's okay into dozen fourteen year on the cover of time and the headline, said the transgender tipping point. Wow, I wanNA to know if you knew that that's what the headline was going to be. And what your reaction was, it was a cover. Try so I wasn't. One hundred percent sure I be on the cover. They told me it stem news item happened. That was really big that I would be bumped from the cover so I didn't know that the cover. What's happening until I? Think the night before that was happening for sure. I didn't know what the headline would be. The first time I saw the cover, a friend of mine named Precious Davis. Who's a brilliant activist and human beings? She's in Chicago. She texted me a photo of the cover and then it was. The editor of time premiered on like think morning America. One of the morning shows that morning. And then it was and I think that certainly changed my wow, so, what was your reaction to the transgender tipping point part of it? You know it's I, don't it's hard for me to separate my reaction in two thousand fourteen from the subsequent sort of reaction. That community has had to that title. There was so much. Criticism. From my community of that title, and the suggestion of that tipping point and criticism of the way the article was written, and who was excluded in there was a lot of that. I like about my community, and what I appreciate about activists who are on the ground doing the work is that in their honesty they keep us accountable. They keep us pushing to go further to be more inclusive to think differently and harder about who is being left out and what? We're not talking about so it's hard for me to separate my reaction. Of the tipping point moment from. The criticism and the critical interrogation of that moment my engine Mitchell, it's we did a panel for variety magazine. A year ago about Trans Representation in the media. For Trans Actors, and she what she said, is that that moment in two thousand fourteen, with kind of all about Laverne is the way she framed it. And then she said Post Post because we're probably impose moment, even though poses still in the air. It's about all of us. Jin, Richards contended, and I like that because I think it was always my goal, that was very clear in two thousand, fourteen at that moment was not about me and man it was about. About a community that was part was about all the activist who worked for years to create space for me to have that moment on the cover of Time magazine, and so now that is coming to fruition that more of our voices are being elevated and more perspectives and It's taken a lot of pressure me I feel a lot of pressure in two thousand fourteen I gotta tell you reflecting on that moment is. Do you remember the criticism more than the celebration? Of both, they covered with revealed on my birthday, so my birthday now is not only my birthday. Anniversary of me being on the cover of Time magazine, which is pretty dope and I decided that year I said to myself. If I'm going to be on the cover of time, magazine, chiappa Party and so. I wasn't going to be on the cover. If I was bump for any reason I was like well, they could just be a birthday party, and so I had a party that year and Time magazine mistake were so generous that they gave us tons of copies of the magazine and my boyfriend at the time had posters made of the of the magazine as opposed to of my Time magazine, covering my apartment, and I went to my mom, and then we gave one. Away for charity, so we had a party and it was indeed celebration there were tons of Trans People at the Party and some people from orange, new black with the party, and so I have fond memories of the celebration of the moment as well but I think both can exist all about both end that I can be in the celebration, the neck, and also critically effect on the moment

Sue Bird on the WNBA's Plan for the 2020 Season

"I Su. High has gone. It's good, so sued the players voted. The WNBA is officially kicking off the two thousand twenty season in late July at IMG Academy in Bradenton Florida. How are you feeling about all this about basketball? Being played in two thousand twenty, you know I'm not gonNA lie. It's kind of mixed emotions. You know I think when it comes to just simply playing basketball lesson. That's an easy answer. There's something about it that will give us. A sense of purpose we love to play. It'll be able to do great things for the WB and this bubble, but then obviously with what's going on whether it's you know health and safety pandemic wise whether it's social justice wise just a lot to kind of process through. I do plan on going so that's not. That's not really what I'm trying to announce anything like that, but it's still like as the date approaches. You know it's still a lot going on I, think everybody said. Your VP of your union. What were some of the Union's biggest concerns? Guys came to an agreement on this. I mean first and foremost is definitely the health part of it all you know the safety part of it all and just kind of going through. You know what the protocol is GonNa. Be An he the frustrating part and it's nobody's fault. Is that because cove nineteen is obviously new? There's not tons information on it because we're trying to get this season going in. At the time it felt like in a you know three or four week period. We're trying to make all these decisions. A lot of doctors just didn't have concrete answers, so the frustrating part was wanting to hear just like exact answers, and really not getting them just being able to be told what kind of they hope things to be in what they plan for so again. It just brings a little bit anxiety, but I think now that we. We are getting closer. That is one thing that that got handled after that it was the money I'm not gonNA lie. You know when you pull to the table for negotiations. You never know what's going to happen, but luckily at the end of the day it took us a second to get there, but at the end of the day we got one hundred percent of our money, even though we're playing a little less in terms of games, but That was that was a good thing as well and then the third thing was the social justice aspect. WNBA is eighty percent black women. You know we're kind of at the intersection of so many things, and we need our league to stand for something and to support us, so those were kind of like the As you mentioned it's so hard to make these decisions when you're working with such imperfect information, especially scientifically, right? What was that like for you personally making that call? I don't know if there's going to be a great analogy, but because I've had so many surgeries and I've had to do. A lot with. Doctors and getting opinions, I've actually I've come to understand that. We've viewed doctors in this light of knowing everything and I've actually in my own way. I've come to understand that they they know a lot, and hopefully you know you have doctors. Luckily I do around you that you can trust, but there's a there's a limit to that. You know when they cut you open to perform surgery. There's always a percentage you know always a chance that it's not gonNA. Work out exactly how you want so for. For me I. Just tried to actually put myself back in that mindset like okay. They're giving us as much as they can. But there's obviously uncontrollables is well. I mean honestly the State of Florida.

Debt Is Never the Answer with Dave Ramsey

"My twenties, I believed what a lot of people believe. The borrow money to make money. I got a degree in finance and the power of leverage and the simplistic formula that if you borrow at one interest rate by percent, four percent, and you reinvested, and you make ten or twelve percent that you're making the spread. That is simplistic, primitive wrong, but I believe that lots of people quote that to me on twitter. to show how ignorant I am that I just don't understand the power of leverage, but I do understand the power of leverage and. Four million dollars worth of real estate until I was twenty four and twenty five years old, and I bought it right so I had a net worth of a million dollars, which means only owed three million on the four million and make a couple of hundred thousand dollars a year flip in properties and doing things, but leverage is a two edged sword, and people never talk about the other edge of it. They always. It only works when it works. Marring money only works when it works. And so, what happened to us was we went broke because the bank called her notes, and we didn't have any liquid. We didn't mean money. We weren't laid on the notes. They just panicked. hysteria tax climate that we were in the presidential climate that we were in and called. You know, look around. Song is ninety short-term notes for flips, and they call them, so we spent two and a half years losing everything we own well in that process I had a an existential crisis. And everything that I believed evidently was wrong. Yeah, and so I went through this whole thing of my intellect, being crushed and questioning and as a Christian I was met God on the way up I got to know him on the way down, and so I started studying biblical finance, and I found the borrowers slave to the lender, and I found one hundred percent of the references in the Bible to dead or negative. And so as a believer that puts a challenge against your finance degree. Yeah, no kidding and you go okay. Somebody's wrong and somebody's right because they're two polar opposites, and you can't just say well, you know sometimes. It's not sometimes in the Bible. And it's all the time in the finance classroom. That's right that you borrow, and so I had to really took me why at first I was in a position and that I just bought it based on my faith. Okay, I don't borrow money. God said. Don't borrow money on. Borrow money period. And then over time I've started understand the intellectual reasons for that the mathematical reasons for that and so I don't borrow money by basically when you borrow money, you increase risk. and. When business people say zero. Five hundred thousand dollars to buy this piece of equipment. They do not. Ascertain risk. They say I can borrows money at six percent and I can put the piece of equipment to work and I can make twelve or fourteen percent on my money, but that's only if everything goes perfectly as it did in your head, and it never goes perfectly business about ninety percent of my ideas that I think are brilliant that I bring to the market. It suck. And borrow on them. It destroys. My life doesn't work, but I think this is a pretty everyone sees you as the guy on the cover of the book cutting up the credit card and the guy that's yell at people for taking car payments, but we don't always address the topic of debt for business. What you're saying is that the same principles apply to how you run your business as how you and your personal absolutely, and if you to look at it through the faith lands, you can't find it in scripture if you WANNA look at it through an intellectual Lens. Let's actually do real math in a real business case. Okay, if you get a finance degree and you get licensed. Licensed in securities like I have been, and you've been in that world. We know in that world that we do not compare a high risk. Mutual Fund apples to apples with a low risk mutual fund. There is a measure of risk mathematically. It's the height of the valley, the height of mountain if you graph it if you see the waves graph in your mind right now, the ones that are straight up straight down have a higher Beta. A Beta is a mathematical statistical measure of risk Okay, and so we know that you can take the bait drop it under the line, meaning an inverse mathematical formula and being complicated here, but the point is, you can intellectually look at this. So when you add risk when you adjust for risk, you can compare these two mutual funds apples to apples. By putting the Beta, underline yeah, inverse relationship, so you're adding risk into your math formula so that you can accurately look at the situation. Most people ninety eight percent of the business cases that entree leaders have brought to me and supposedly sophisticated people who criticize me on blocks. They do not have any measure of risk in their formula. They're not saying what happens if this happens, what happens if there's a move in the marketplace what happens if a customer doesn't pay me, what happens if it doesn't sell like? I think it's going to sell, and it can be something as simple as that guy borrowing ninety thousand dollars to buy a dump truck. And it's GonNa work out I'm GONNA saw him on a whole lot of stuff dump truck. We can't get loads. Fuel prices go up insurance prices. Go Up. He has wreck here about any of those things, and so he says I'm GonNa make money by borrowing money, but there's no mathematical measure of risk in that formula, and when you insert risk into your leverage formula, the benefits of Leverage go away. They dissipate. So turns out. We can mathematically prove that God was right. socking. I mean that's what it comes down to so present this. A bunch of MBA's at Vanderbilt spoke to him. Ba Group over there and they were looking at me like German shepherds Oh. That's what I was GONNA say. Lou because nowhere in academia. Does anybody talk about this?

"Hello, hello, welcome to dose of leadership so happy you're tuning in. Man. What a crazy week! It's been for me I feel like I've been out of touch with those of leadership I've been so busy with family one of my daughters. Unexpectedly, move up to Detroit so to deal with that. Then, I started flying again I actually started flying into. Believe this. Flu Can re second at the beginning of twenty twenty. And then I went on my first trip last week mid June. I'm recording this. On June twenty fifth. was a week ago I went to Inchon. China in Beijing or Inchon South Korea, and in Beijing China and then back to Dallas. Do you believe that? An implant again tomorrow ahead in the Paris of the world seemingly is coming back to normal. But it still feels weird out there I tell you it just does not seem the same. Even when I was in John, it seemed like World War Z. almost there was nobody the airport. Didn't have any passengers on the plane we were picking up. Cargo of all. Things didn't stay the night in China. Because we can't I wouldn't want to. Because of the Cova deal. But it was just weird, but it was good on one hand, but still a stark reminder of of how different things are and. It's a little uneasy and I'll be honest with you. Leadership has been attested and challenged. In the. Early. I really do think this is trying times for everybody but This is a great opportunity for leadership, and hopefully this show Dosa leadership is a great resource for you a free resource for you in your leadership journey. Where authentically we deal with leadership topics, and how all how helping you to become a better leader? That's what it's all about and I know I certainly been tested over the last two weeks. And I'm just like you and it's glad to be back in the saddle and giving you a great episode another great conversation. With Alon Hunkin 's Alana's. Spelled L. A. L., A. N., the French pronunciation, but demand. What a great guest! I really connected with him! We've been trying to get him on the show for quite some time. Even looking back to February and March and and we finally got it done. By about three or four weeks ago when I recorded this conversation and I'm excited to bring this to you this week. He's just a one of the great ones I really. Do. You think so? He's a sought after keynote speaker facilitators coach. He is a leadership expert. He's leadership junkie. It's right in. To the dose of leadership tribe. And he wrote a great book in fact, if I could write a book if I can wake up and morning, said Richard You could write any type of book that want. I think I would write. Like he did and cracking the leadership code. It's really good. It's about three secrets to building strong leaders. And he got. He has a lot of science behind e discovering the brain science behind leading people. He's got a lot of great real life leadership stories in the book and at the end of the day. The book is a practical leadership toolkit to become a better leader. That's what it's all about just like. This show is something that you can put in your arsenal in your tool kit and become a better leader. And I like what he uses to. In the tool kit as you know as with me, I got the four CS Alon has the three CS in to him. It's all about connection, communication and collaboration I love that I absolutely love that. So we deep dive into that in this conversation and we we also what I love about him. He's the first guest that I've had a near that. That references Frederick? And I do that a lot in my keynotes, and so I cannot stand Frederick. Winds Will Taylor and The idea of scientific management theory that came about, and they dusted revolution and I. Still reason why I don't like him is because of the way that he viewed people. He viewed workers as cogs in a machine and He's a mechanical engineer by trade. And he looked at these things, and anyway it Frederick was a Taylor in my opinion has created this. Cultural Rift that still is with us today, even though it's been debunked for the past sixty years that the type of scientific management theory doesn't work in the dynamic environments that we're dealing with today, it works in certain situations, but not overall and the mindset and the concepts that were brought forth from Frederick. Wendell Taylor are still we're dealing with them today in all the organizations particularly large organizations. And leadership is the solution the type of ship we talk about here on those leadership and Alon. Gets a one hundred percent, and so we deep dive into that. You're really gonNA. Enjoy that. My highly encourage you to go get his book. Cracking the leadership code again if I. Could write a book. It would be one like this it's it's that good

The role of a leader in removing anxiety.

Hacking Your Leadership

05:01 min | Last week

The role of a leader in removing anxiety.

"On Instagram at hacking your leadership and leave us review on itunes. Or for this week's episode I WanNa talk about leadership anxiety. Not, anxiety, from a diagnosis standpoint, rather a philosophical one. Virtually, no one can say they've never felt anxious. Anxiety is simply a realization that a person has free will. Because with free will comes the ability to make decisions that either get us closer to where we WANNA. Go or take us further away from where we WANNA go. We all know someone who seems to self sabotage. These people subconsciously eliminate their options because the very existence of options is too much to handle. If you only have one option, the anxiety of potentially making a wrong decision goes away. I once read that really great parents understand a core paradox of parenting that you are one hundred percent responsible for how your children turn out, and that you accomplish this by teaching them that they are one hundred percent responsible for how they turn out. And I really believe this applies to leadership to great leaders. Hold themselves one hundred percent responsible for the outcomes of their teams, while simultaneously feeling no responsibility for the choices made by their people. And I know what you're thinking. Really a great leader as someone who feels no responsibility for the choices made by their people absolutely, but you can't just take that second part by itself. It goes hand in hand with the first part, which is holding themselves one hundred percent responsible for the outcomes of their team. So think about what this means and why these people really feel any anxiety in their roles as leaders. I what does it mean to micromanage someone and mighty some leaders micromanage? Micromanaging leader is simply someone who tries to control every aspect of the job of someone reporting to them. These leaders incredibly high anxiety, many of them absolutely take one hundred percent responsibility for the outcomes of their teams, which is good, but they also take one hundred percent responsibility for the choices made by their people, and the surest way to reduce the anxiety that comes along with that is to make those decisions for their people, hence the micromanaging. Employees were micromanaged aren't typically happier engaged, but they also don't feel any anxiety over making the wrong decision because they don't really get to make any decision. The actions of their leader freeze them from any anxiety, but they're also deprived from any sort of growth or development. Conversely there are leaders were about as far from micromanaging. It gets they other people to take projects and run with them to feel empowered to feel trusted, and this works really well when things work well when the outcomes are good, but their lack of involvement in the choices made by their people allows them to feel no responsibility for the outcomes of their teams, these are the leaders that allow people to fail and then blame them for the failures. have. You ever seen a team in a corporate environment. Go from superstar status to virtually imploding in a very short period of time. Accolades and opportunities for everyone on the team riding high on fantastic outcomes, and then suddenly complete disengagement and high turnover. Look to the leadership. They undoubtedly allow their people to take the fall for a poor result rather than owning that outcome themselves. So how does the leader do both? How does the leader take one hundred percent responsibility for the outcomes of their team while simultaneously feeling no responsibility for the choices made by their people. It starts an acknowledgement of how people are motivated to make good choices. It isn't done with techniques exercises. It happens when leader show personal risk and vulnerability. The best way to know if you can trust, someone is to trust them, but nothing is as empowering was free to employees than the knowledge that they have the freedom to grow and to fail without significant personal risk to themselves. That you as their leader have decided to take on that responsibility for them, because the anxiety that comes with that responsibility can limit their potential. The feeling that they are responsible for the outcomes of the team is constraining, and it usually leads to a lack of risk-taking, no matter how thoughtful or planned, it might be. But when employees feel the freedom of being able to make their own choices combined with the knowledge that their leader is shouldering the responsibility of the outcome, the vast majority of employees earn it in their actions. They inherently fill the void left by you, taking the responsibility of the outcomes with an enormous sense of responsibility to you, their leader and a desire not to let you down. That's who people are. That's what people do when you're action. Show them their trusted. They earned the trust. You've already given them. Now here's where the anxiety part comes in think about the last time you thought responsible for a business outcome, a number on a scorecard, an important metric for increasing profitability. Think about what he felt like. Feel it for a minute. Now, think of the last time he felt responsible to another person to a relationship the last time he didn't WanNa, let a person down because you valued their opinion of you. How did that feel? Different right. The first one feels out of your hands like you're at the mercy of forces beyond your control, while still responsible for them, the second feels totally within your control, still a deep feeling of responsibility but one that leaves you knowing what you have to do. It might still be hard. You're in control of it. If your leader, people try to stop thinking of yourself as someone whose job it is to own the decisions of your people and instead focus on making sure your people are acutely aware of the freedom. They have to make their own decisions. The real growth that takes place, both in that employees as well as in your relationship with them happens in the moments when they fail, and they see you

Social Justice

"Should our nonprofit take a stand on social justice issues. If we think it might alienate some donors. Oh topical questions Mad We can tell what's on people's minds and I'm glad that this is on people's minds because it's a really important question. I have an opinion and if you're gonNA guess what my opinion is, which is. Absolutely. So so there's tons of research, and and before we get too far. This is ab absolutely. Bring in a guest expert because this is the kind of lead to. This is the kind of thing where people who know way more about this than we do. But, but there's there's a ton of research out there and people in the nonprofit sector, probably more likely to believe it than people in the corporate sector are that. When you take a stand on social issues, you bring the people that are interested in what you've got to say much closer to you and the people that were never interested in you to begin with are not going to have their minds changed by you taking a stand on a particular social issue. I can talk about my time at three. Square I think I've probably told this story on the podcast before to. We got a handwritten note. A check for I think twenty five dollars on it and the handwritten note said. Here's twenty five dollars. I would like you to use this money to feed American citizens only. Hell I remember that we talked about. It's been two years. We talked about like that right, and and we had no hesitation at the food bank like I. You know I looked at it. I knew what I wanted to do I brought it to the executive or the CEO. I said Hey. This is what we got. This is what I WANNA do. And the blessing was absolutely. That's what you should ride. There was not even any discussion internally about. Let's not hurt her feelings, so we drafted a letter, which said that much your donation. However, we cannot restrict donations specifically to people who are American citizens, and that's it and we returned it back to her with that little note. There's a one hundred percent chance. She never gave another donation to the food bank again, but that was twenty five bucks right, so it was absolutely wasn't a really hard. We weren't selling our morals for a significantly amount at large amount of money was just a very well. And you and I both know that amount of money shouldn't matter. I know within a matter, but like we don't know this reader talks about alienating some or this. You know this person says they're alienating some donors. We don't know what size donors were talking about, but I still. That doesn't make a difference in my opinion. I just think. I would I would say my push pushback to that would be that. What donors are you alienating by? Not taking a stand because there's been a whole I I've been following all these sort of private facebook groups that have nonprofit professionals in groups with you know nonprofit executive directors all over the country that are talking about this and I would say if I were just roughly speaking. Ninety percent of people right now are putting out some statement because a it's so intertwined in every mission out their rates. Social Justice issues are at the core of those I think the key is making sure that it is. Not done in a sloppy manner or a an obligatory manner I. I don't know about you. Andy, but I've seen so many statements that come out that feel like people are doing it to check the box. Instead of actually it's core values. It's the way they work and I. Think People can see through that so I do think you have to be careful about that as an organization, so, but it comes back to your fundamental values. Your mission your how you? who you serve a to me, it feels it just feels like a even if it's a donor on the line like what about the donors who are waiting to see what you say? I think you gotta look at it from both lenses absolutely I mean and you have you make a good point about like especially right now. There's a lot of every corporate PR. Department has put out some sort of statement it says either black lives, matter or something close enough to that that they don't feel like they're actually going to put their foot in anything. They don't mean to put their foot in and and you can tell just by the way they're written whether or not they mean. Whether or not, it's like. I. Read Someplace recently that that saying we need to do better is about the same as hopes and prayers for gun violence like it, it just something that comes out of your mouth, and it means you have absolutely no intention of doing something about it. So when we talk about know in the nonprofit sector. Your your integrity is all you have, and you realize that your people are going to give to you because believe in your mission one hundred percent of the time and some of the other things, so there's there's other studies that are just recent. That are so interesting because they're tangential to this, not the same thing, but it's like if if you find out that there's a charity for that serves cats in a charity. This serves dogs and you're a dog person. You've always been a dog person. You give the dog person charity, and then you read a study or read something in the newspaper that says. The dog charity is. Seventy five percent effective and the cat charities ninety five percent effective. It doesn't matter your dog person. You're still giving to the dog charity, which means that the purpose that caused the reason that you're a nonprofit is always going to be much more important than the individual activities that you undertake and provided. You're not terrible now that you're not coming down on the wrong side of this thing. And if you if you do come down the wrong side of it out, you get what you deserve

Dressing your child gender neutral

"This week we have a message from listener Allie and Allie wrote twist, and she said in reference to you and Rilo. She said I like how you always dress Rilo in cute, but mostly gender-neutral close. Maybe an episode on that and other parenting choices would be interesting. Yes, I thought I would just talk about my choices of how to parent like. Laura! Laura's because very my not the expert but I. Do you are aware of an expert more of an expert than? I. Genuinely. Don't even think that's true. I have the viewpoint that I am one hundred percent the best mom in the whole world for Rilo. And Not for any other child, so I can tell you how I parent Rilo, but I very much believe that everybody is the best parent for their own particular child and nobody else's child. That is something I. believe so strongly, so I can give you my take. It might not at all apply to you, and also it might not even it might not apply. Apply to my hopeful-. Hopefully, I have more children or a child. At least it might not apply to my second child. It may not apply to Rilo. In two years three years I have no idea but going into it I very much was like we chose the name Rilo when we didn't know if it was a boy or girl wanted to gender neutral name. I tried to kind of dress. Him Gender Neutral I. Give Him toys of all sorts. And then you just see what they're. You know I really try to not. Be Conscious not to push. Gender specific stereotypical things on him. But I fully support it whatever he's interested in, so I bought him like baby dolls and his kitchen, which I guess, unfortunately are things associated with women, and he has his cars in his trained in his truck like stuff and I'd say he likes both right now he is fully fully into like trains and trucks and cars, and then and so we buy more. More of those books and he'll like. Tell us what books he wants. He'll look on the back of his books and point to other books. He wants because he sees the pictures of other books, but like the other day he said I want this book. And it was like a book of a Princess so I'm going to get a firm. You know so right. Much, take that stance I'm not gonNA like I'm not like dressing my little boy, and like to to for like that would feel like performance. Likely asks for two unless Yasser Tutu exactly so. Like! Whether we have a boy, a girl or boy next whenever whenever that is I hope I'll use. His hammy downs and I don't know I kinda just try to dress him. Gender Neutral I. Guess would be the Word I. keep his hair long. He's got his little bond I don't think about it all that much, but like before. Da Grana we were in a little kid store, and he pointed to a shirt had lake just like trucks and cars all over it, and it was not something that I would ever picked out for him myself, but he's like. Do. You want this shirt and it's his favorite shirt and he goes in his journey grabs it so sometimes you try your hardest. It's been interesting because you try not to push these gender things, but sometimes kids kids are like into certain machines or In his case, he really loves cars and trucks. Not just like what he's in do it's not my passions, not nick's half in. But like my nightmare nightmares, having a child, and then being really into sports. They chose sports I would support them. Exactly I wouldn't know how to navigate it, but you don't have like deep thoughts on the issue other than I'm consciously choosing not to push the. Words you will never hear come out of my mouth. are that's for a girl, or that's for a boy? Like those are words they would never cross my lips or like he wears pink pants and I got him like I was looking for a Sippy Cup. At whole foods for him. When I was ordering my online groceries and I was like sippy cups for kids, one they had was like bright pink with red. Pink Flower Ping Carts and I was like great, perfect cue, cute for a kid, Q. Boy girl, and I bought it for him I'm not like. Like you know like I'm definitely socially conditioned to be like. Oh, they have a girl one, but I like very quickly after like. Check my own bias against that and say like He. I am going to buy him. This Pink Cup with pink hearts, and like that will be my son's next cup. You know that he carried with him. Everywhere are little. cousin Henry who is going to be a ring bearer for our wedding. He loves pink and Purple They are his favorite colors. And when we were picking out all the stuff for them to wear for the wedding he really really wanted a pink flower. Give him a pink flower and we. You will one day Angela one. Day But the point is. He loves PINK AND PURPLE AND WE don't make a big deal that we just we get him pink and purple stuff.

Court ruled that the trump administration had acted unlawfully when it tried to rescind DACA, the deferred action for childhood arrivals program designed to protect people known as dreamers. From a moral standpoint, this is a tremendously gratifying decision. Dreamers about the most sympathetic people you could imagine, and the fact that the trump administration sought their deportation was again from a moral standpoint horrendous. That, said the supreme. Court's decision was itself surprising on the law. The decision was written by chief. Justice John Roberts who is ordinarily a staunch conservative. And as the fact that it was a five to four decision shows, there were grounds that a conservative justice like Roberts could have used. Had He wanted to decide that? What Barack Obama put in place namely the DACA program Donald Trump could remove indeed. Roberts typically has a rather expensive conception of executive power, and although we can know with one hundred percents certainty I would say ninety nine percent probability that several years ago Roberts was one of the justices who voted to strike down an Obama program that was similar to Dhaka aimed at parents. So what was going on here? Why did chief justice? John Roberts choose to leave his conservative. And join the Liberals to keep Daca in place. Sometimes when Roberts issues, apparently liberal decision, it's clear that what he's doing is trying to preserve the appearance of legitimacy of the Supreme Court. Voiding scenario where the public would think of the justices as basically partisan. Roberts understands that the public knows that the Supreme Court justices have different ideologies. What he doesn't want is for the public to think that the justices vote based on the party of the person who appointed that. That may explain Roberts's vote not to entirely strike down obamacare. The affordable care act some years ago. In the case. However Roberts's motivation seems to have been somewhat different. What seems to be motivating, Roberts is a kind of disrespect for the Donald Trump administration's unwillingness to cross. It's t's dots is and follow the rule of law when it comes to issuing important governmental decisions. We saw this a year ago when Roberts also provided the decisive fifth vote to reverse the trump administration's plan to put a citizenship question on the twenty twenty census. Census in that case, as in the DACA case Roberts relied on a law called the administrative precede. ACT, which is the law that gives a federal courts, the authority to oversee and review decisions of administrative bodies in order to determine whether they complied with the procedures that the law demands in particular. The Administrative Procedure Act requires that the government give clear honest and. Justify and reasons for why it's doing what it's doing. And both the census case and the DACA case. Roberts ruled that the government had failed to provide those justifications in essence. Roberts was saying taking the action in question was within the General Authority of the executive branch, but the executive branch didn't do a good enough job of explaining why it did what it did. This kind of judicial supervision of governmental action is crucial to preserving the rule of law, and it's pretty clear that John Roberts no longer trusts the trump administration to do that to be sure at the beginning of the trump administration roberts was willing to give trump the benefit of the doubt. He after all wrote the opinion in the trump against Hawaii case, the one involving the Muslim travel ban in which he upheld the presence authority to issue the version of the travel ban that was in play the time. What seems to have happened subsequently is that has Roberts has gotten a closer and closer look at trump's disrespect for the courts and his disrespect for the rule of law. He's decided to take on the role of defending judiciary defending the rule of law, and if making trump comply. And it may not be a relevant. That Roberts, also had to spend a good chunk of his January sitting in the Senate, listening to the impeachment managers condemnation of Donald, trump, precisely for his disrespect for the rule of law, so if you're wondering whether John Roberts has suddenly become a liberal. Take it from me. He has not I expect more conservative decisions from him possibly even this week or next but John. Roberts has taken up the responsibility of the judiciary to keep an eye on this president. And for that I think everybody liberal or Conservative should be profoundly grateful.

Family Planning

"Dr Marcus okay cool, so our our topic today is family planning, and I know we've had at least one episode in the past about birth control, but this is really like a broader topic about how to approach family planning more generally like the decision making process at how many kids to have when to be birth control. How how the decision about being on birth control gets made so I actually wanted to start off with the issue of how the decision to go on birth control gets made because I was always taught coming from a more centrist Orthodox perspective that before you birth control. You have to ask a Shyla. To sort of have this like Consultation with your rabbi, and like get permission to go on birth control so rabbi Linzer What what are some lucky considerations behind that like? Why is that sort of popular conception right? A lot of misconceptions so family planning is really the question of view right? There's amidst flat to have children and There's debate. How many is the two boys or and a girl? We will to boy and a girl. And then there's an idea to have even more after you have a boy and a girl so in a certain level. It makes sense that there would be a healthy question which is if you want to frame it in terms can. I postponed doing this? Mitzvah how many kids my supposed to have and but you know it is worth saying that these are very recent questions because the whole concept of family planning you know only became really possible. Once there was the pill once it was highly effective. Means of birth control other than that for that people tried i. I mean there were early forms of the condiments so on, but the re the real ability to more precisely control. How many kids are going to happen when you're going to have them really is a very recent phenomenon. Is that not true now? It's one hundred percent tro and I was sort of stuck as we were thinking about doing this. I was thinking back so I got married. I don't know thirty six years ago long time ago over. and. And you know good religious couple. When I got married, we went to that person who's going to be on my side of condition. We asked him if we could use birth control. And he said he asked me give us like a hitter for year years I don't remember, and then we supposed to come back and ask again and. I by the time that year was over, it had hit me that it was so ridiculous that we were asking somebody else. If we should be having kids way and now thirty six years later and I think a lot has changed about this. The idea that somebody else would be able to have the. AUTHORITY TO OUR GAB or like to try to get into your head under sound like where you guys are at, and whether or not appropriate. If you'd have kids is is a little bit mind boggling to be and I'm just where the come like. Why do people feel that? They had to ask like where did that even come from his idea that you had? Had to ask you like I, mean I'm not a historian, so I don't know how exactly evolved, but I will say if you moved from a time when the idea was your, you naturally have kids, and you have as many kids as you're naturally going to produce, and you know the camera says that it's anybody who does not involve themselves in poor view. Procreation is if they took a life. Because you know, it's preventing life from coming into the world, so because a lot of weight that's put on that, and then you realize. Oh, my Gosh Now! I have the ability to control it so I think that naturally leads to a sense of like. Wait a minute. Is this permissible or now? So it was an area helicopter started to change the same way like I've changed and raised. A whole bunch of questions raised a whole bunch of West. Yes, exactly that accept the new reality coming Iraq. Like pushing hard to to address these questions, except I'll tell you what why I think this is a weirder thing is because. It almost was the ideas like. Are we allowed to have sex without having a baby? Right like that was the question. Young couples were asking exactly like. They weren't having sex before they were married. least theoretically, they weren't having sex, and but now is it. Is it okay for us to have sex, but not have obeyed right, so it's really a question about sex. It's not a question of prue SORTA. That's exactly what's happening. I don't know if that's initially why the question was asked you know. I have a

He says the agreement with CMS will help. The facility maintained and expanded services going forward now that all of our visits that we have a with our our patients are are able to be reimbursed, fully reimbursed now and so those the hospitals will receive that additional revenue, and then we take that revenue investment back into to.

I think Toy Story four feels unnecessary and be as good, and I don't think it'll bomb, but I don't think it will do amazing Allen. I dunno why? Because Tim, Allen's out here like, you know, really getting pop in for like all right in middle America. So maybe they'll go see it. I will fully be pushing small children out of the way to that.

Which is really what we're seeing why ills single bit by bit. But I guess it's really it's about whether what the reaction will be from congress and other politicians like will they finally separate. Well, they begin to separate. I think we'll see some people bail on Trump on the right because you can only lie to yourself. So. Much you can only act stupa so long 'til you start looking stupid. Right. But isn't there safety in numbers though? I feel like if there's going to be a bail out is going to be everybody dipping at once. Yeah. Well, I mean, I think one version has been all the people who retired at last year who didn't want to go through terms who bailed that way. Yeah.

I think a lot of the world is designed to distract us from two facts one. We're all gonna die. A no we've been trying to avoid thing. Species for thousands of years, we have religion and rituals and myths to do that for us. But then the other thing that I don't think we acknowledged as much as that. We don't like to realize that we're one person out of seven billion people on this earth them like that's only getting worse and people you know, that that when you realize that makes you feel less important, and I think that's a big part of the drive towards social media. And like that whole the idea that that's not true and trying to believe in a world where that's not true has replaced. A lot of the community stuff that used to help us feel transcend like just being individual lonely humans in the past. Right. So do you believe that online communities have siphoned away from like physical in person communities? Yeah. I think I think they have an I think the what they've replaced those physical impact. Dozen communities with has been not as effective or grad. If you or I mean, people just report being lonelier now than they've ever been in the past. So I never used to believe that report just because I feel like social life is so. No winning. That was a coincidence drink. I hope it was a coincidence. Police Drake don't do this. But I think that I always kind of was skeptical of those because I'm like, okay..

"Of people dead body. Oh. Latif in it. I saw someone, but listen with a discount like scratching my neck, a jagged incisors that was railroaded. How could you say? No, okay. Yeah. But they're going down the show is over it's curtains. Alright super producer, Nick stump had a kind of a big broad sweeping one that I really liked that. I wanted to have him come in and talk about Nick, are you there? I am. Hey, how's everybody doing first of all eight how you wow? Wow. Somebody comes to life. Suddenly thank you so much on his back before. This me we're in the air. Yes. How art thou? Great. You know? Okay. Okay. Well, I'll let you talk. So new year. Have you may be news? You're and you as well two thousand nine thousand nine keen believe it camp. It's my stalemated. So nick. Yeah. What what is your prediction for the year two thousand nineteen so yeah, as you said, this is sort of broad sweeping in and indefensible and a lot of ways. But I in defensible is predicting people's deaths. Differently. Indefensible I think I think in two thousand nine hundred you're going to see us sort of cultural shift back in the direction of their needing to be something that could be described as adults in the room, the return of the adult the return of the adult because I think we're like we've been in the age of any asshole for a long time, or is like anybody can do anything, you know, anybody can like, you know, have a podcast and pretend to know what they're talking about. Hey. No. But you know, what I mean? And I think Donald Trump is maybe the presidency of Donald Trump is perhaps the culmination of that Lord of the flies world that we've constructed for our selves in the last little while. And then the wheels are so fully off at this point that I think you're gonna see people craving a returning of the wheels. So that, you know, I just think like both in let's say, art and media culture, you're gonna see sort of like don't bother me unless you really good at it kind of come back. Okay. And then what would that look like, well, I just think like there's just so much. You know, there's so much content all over the place that I think people are just going to it's going to naturally. Just start having fat, trimming, right? Netflix in Paul will no longer be the top trending entertainer on. Yeah. You know? I think things like that. I mean, and you're starting to see rumblings of this already like there's this documentary on Netflix the American mean, which is like. You know, what are we do? Why are we all trying to be famous all the time? Like, do you really wanna spend your life doing that? Just I just think there's going to be like a and the fact that there's just the amounts of content like podcasting is sort of approaching per capita net. Flicks. Are you? No, no, no. Because you guys are good. I mean, that's in personam bias. So but think yes, I think club fat trimming is in order because there's just so much of everything and in so in media in entertainment culture that that will manifest itself, and they're just being less stuff. Like the little things will start to fall away and winners will emerge to the bar will be lifted this year in a way the bar. I think we'll go back up. Yes. I think the barriers of entry for everything have been lowered in a in a way that's cool because it it democratises things in a good way. So, but it's right now, we're in sort of peak. Everybody's doing everything. And I think it's gonna wash out a little say you saying I need to get my scams in now. So I'm saying. The doors bang tank. Scam. You right. I'm have to innovate and that's what good scammers do. Then. Like, you know in politics. I think you are going to the next whoever the next round of people getting elected are in twenty twenty. And you know is going to be somebody..

Oh, they pick you up from a parking lot. Well, I think that's processing center, basically for people who enter it. This is actually land episode is based on a real that Alanna episode is so accurate because then I was watching it. I was like, oh, my God someone who went to Drake's houses in this writer's room and knows this so specific because you go to this abandoned parking lot this time, it was a toys R us was abandoned parking. Because there. Yeah. But at the time, they weren't out of business. You get processed, basically. So you fill out this like India and this paperwork, you show your ID. They make sure you're fucking them. I guess NDA's. What happens in the house? Yeah. Yeah. So then you get like so you don't just get on the bus.

"And I like there were saying that we we we tend to think that like the more stress you put yourself under the earlier you die. But a lot of times. It's the more you work. The more engaged you are and get thrown to live. You have a reason to live like you just keep going, basically. And I feel like someone like Trump is just constantly, you know, he eats conflict for breakfast. And so he just shit for. Yeah. He's pieces of shit like us for breakfast. Yes. And he just you know, it's going to be hard to get that ticker to stop. Yeah. Okay. So I don't know, man. And it what do you got? This year. I think potentially a waste are we waiting on this. No, we can start hop right into debt. Okay. Thinking maybe Alex Jones might go from loneliness go pass away just not being able to from loneliness too deadly. But you mean like he might just die from a broken heart or just like 'cause no one's fighting with him. And he doesn't have any like platforms him against McGuinness. We're way look like they're about to put out HUD, single. I think Guinness might also a ride of some sort because he is really fucking around out here. So you think so some death on the on the railway went to be some alt-right leaders who who they have Have no no reason reason. faith reason to live rather. Yeah. And then that would be really bad if they did. Because then I feel like, you know, you get these conspiracies, and you get their followers rising up. Right. And maybe those conspiracies are true. Okay. Wow. It for yourself. I news predicting this. Maybe what who else you got going under? I have Jimmy Carter Jimmy Carter, but we could see Jimmy glad years ago. I know you do say that. But he, you know, he's looking he's probably the most, you know, he look Steelers delicate. Oh when people talk about you. They're not already right? Right. Those are goals. Don't let me that old.

I'm gonna go with Keith Richards because he just quit drinking, and I feel like she has been sustained by a delicate balance of like cocaine and alcohol and women equilibrium and young women. And now it's going to throw the balance off. Well, you know, it's gonna be he's gonna be living. Good for a little while just like win. Dave Chapelle killed Rick James. You know what I mean? And there will be that's what happened. Manati? Yeah. So there will be some lull. And then eventually he'll start trying to party like you used to. And that's what's gonna get him. Oh, right. I think Cosby or Jared one of our soldiers. Yeah. Jerry Fogel, one of our sex offenders whose imprison because they are not popular there. Yeah. Why think Cosby my I don't know he's old? So I could see that Jared's been he's been rocking. Bill Cosby petty, though, people don't like to just die. You know what I mean? Like, I see I see Bill trying to ride out his sentence. Like all get out. I could be two hundred eighty. Yeah. Novels. I'll get out. What are you trying to say? Oh, I can't live to eighty okay? Just cross his arms. And so we like makes an appeal.

John Schneider will emerge from the ashes like a Phoenix right in. Reclaim his throne. As Papa oh, really? I have. Well. Yeah. Yeah. That's what I'm going to say. Okay. I have a feeling he's going to do really really extreme job of trying to rehabilitate his image to try and come back, but it's going to fail. But I feel like I don't know.

We'll come on. You know, we got a double down. I got I have some that'll probably have the secret service knocking on my door. Okay. Yeah. I mean, I do think that he's becoming more and more unhinged. We now know that part of his being unhinged is Adderall fueled. And he's been doing it for like twenty years now. So I think he's probably that's not sustainable. Now's lack of sleep. And you know, snorting of Adderall is problematic for one sanity. Yeah. So the this, you know, all the stuff we're like man, this guy is really losing it starting to I don't know come together. And then also the pressure of, you know, just listen to the people around him the people around him are like the he's not built for this even Nixon was completely. Early guarded by an armada of lawyers and Trump is under lawyer. He does not have good representation who as the president of the United States. I think one of them actually might be was his name. Larry h Parker. Who is that? Larry X Parker. Got me two point one. Guy, and he would like had like the little phone. He's like, I'm Larry Parker. And I'll fight for you symbols. Like all the TV lawyer has got to Kobe. Myers park. Jacob been Ronnie. Yes here in LA Cellino in Barnes. This is super team bending images calls everyone on television. I'm predicting this. I guess it's kind of political is about Trump like I'm predicting more senior moments from trout, I think his brain is really just going left, and I'm predicting more moments where he doesn't remember Melania's behind him. And maybe he pays on himself this year. You know what I mean with Ellen? Yeah, they try to blame it on. The rain is pit like a full on senior moment. Like, oh, it just rained on your dick. Yeah. Right. Not the same people with incontinence. But these are just predictions. Also, I think along sort of what you're thinking, Jack. I think he'll have some kind of medical issue that he may use to rationalize or justify resigning. Oh, yeah. So you can have like a heroes out. He's like NAMA. You know, the doctor said like I'm not very this right now. So I'm gonna have to have my handed over. Yeah. But he's so just focused on always being the strongest that I wonder like can he admit to himself that he's not invincible? I think he knows. He's like I'm going to say this to save my ass or something like that. I don't know. But then he might face an indictment either way. I don't know again, these are just wild takes. Yes. But I think I just feel it just mathematically with what we know about his diet and things like at at some point. We will see that. He is not in good health. I don't maybe people. Along though old they sustain they sustain. I've got one evil as aunt who like hit my grandmother over the head with a hammer like this. She is still alive. She has to be in her nineties going strong. Don't you talk to her? Yes. My goodness. Trump. My live might have those McCain years, then became mom is still alive. It twenty nineteen. Yeah. Yeah. She is. She is. That's my prediction. She got at twenty twenty. Got another year. Let there you go. We do have a deaths section that we want to cover. Okay. Tighten. But McCain's mom would not be the hottest of takes. I guess. I don't think she's going to die. I'm saying she's going to live through. Oh, yes. Okay. Yes. I mean have we what was the last president? We had who died in office that wasn't like an assassination was that like McKinley or some shit the guy who seated the office to teddy Roosevelt. I think that that was like the late eighteen hundreds early nineteen hundreds. So like, but but I do I do think we'll FDR. Oh, right. But yeah, Jimmy Carter. He kinda died. You know? Shane Warne tje, Warren Harding. He died. William Henry Harrison Zachary Taylor of the presents who died in office. Okay. And then assassinations are Lincoln Garfield McKinley and Kennedy. Realize girls? You like wait what happened to him? With some bed, which Kennedy. Jamie Kennedy from MTV who's now FOX like I read this study about how people who retire early end up dying earlier..

"I hope it has enduring impact in a different way. Well, it certainly left liberals being interested in the courts will be fine, but I really hope this keeps people fired up about electoral politics like we can't rely on the supreme court to be the one arm of government that does are bidding whether liberal or conservative, you need vibrant electoral democracy. You need legislatures acting, and I really hope that at the state level at the local level, the city level and at the at the federal level that people are engaged about that issue and and and use those institutions to move forward. Because I think those are the institutions that were designed to respond to the popular will. The courts are very going to be very hard to move its acting in by voting and by being incredibly active citizens and pushing for for legislation that you want. That's gonna make. Biggest difference. The court is has become by bec- because the other two institutions of government, the other two arms of government have withered. So when are so so bad and how they carry out their business it, the court has become overly powerful into having Democrats pick recognize electoral politics matter and vote and vote and vote in vote. That seems to me, I hope is an outcome of this, although I think what you're saying it makes great sense. But the danger is that they ties to presidential election. We saw it with President Trump where people had all kinds of reservations about him, but said, well, he's going to name the springboard Justice now, name too, so that that is more important than any other possible issue insurance. The presidency answer, basically a job where you do one thing for certain voters, which I think it's your your point Dante democratic in terms of having a robust system with all of its component parts that respond to different speeds in different ways to the will of. I guess I just wanna add one. More dope for we leave behind the this particular narrative, which is just that it's Kevin confirm than Christine. Blocking Ford is going to have turned her life completely upside down. You know, from a lot from my sense of her today in a lot of ways like changed it revocable in a way that is not what she wanted all and it will be for not. I mean, that is not her fault. It is not her shame. It's the countries, but I, I'm gonna find that just really, really hard, but it's not for not me. I mean, she did her duty as a citizen. She did her duty as somebody who's who's victim and she will be a, she may not have wanted it, but it was, you know, sometimes responsibility falls on you and you have to act and she acted in the honorable right way. And she will be, I think, rightly praised certainly on the left for the next generation for having done that. And while that may not be the same satisfaction as having actually stock. Opt Kevin o. from becoming a Justice. If he's not stopped from becoming a Justice, it does not in any way negate or or or diminish what she did and she and nor to diminish the impact that this may have on people in the same way that Anita hill failed to stop the Clarence Thomas for being confirmed as the spring court Justice but changed America. And I think it's possible that Ford will change American ways that we can't measure yet and not in the way that she hoped to change it. But in some other way that that it's hard for us to know. But she moved to people. She was credible. She was important and she spoke truth to power, and that's all you can ask someone to do. Hope you're right and Anita hill did say the other day that she does not regret having come forward, and I hope that will be true for Blasi for it as well. I just feel like she is not a person who wanted this notoriety. She wanted to be a professional. She wanted to be she wanted to life. She had it sounds like she had a good life and now she is world famous for one terrible thing that happened her what she was fifteen, and it's going to be just really hard. I think maybe I'm over identifying with her, but I just really feel for her. So let's leave it. There were taping on Thursday evening. Looks like there's going to be a vote in the judiciary committee on Friday as as we tape. That's the plan..

"If that happens, do you guys think that that will be an electoral catastrophe for Republicans? Do you think this is a thing which would cause Democrats to come out and and be just absolutely outrageous turn out even more than they would or do you think as I think is possible that this this whole episode is going to really motivate a lot of Republicans to come out and vote who maybe weren't even planning to, regardless of whether he gets confirmed, I think even confirmed they will come out and vote or maybe it won't matter at all. I think he should firms. I think that re- that democratic women women in general, who we've been I heard from today who just broke into tears at line because of the way is connected to their own frustration in not being heard and listened to in various ways about their own sexual assaults or very close to it. I think that if this gets framed in a confirmation as Republicans not listening to women. Then this becomes a motivational motivation for the lose. If you believe politics is if people are animated by grievance, Republicans will have gotten what they wanted, which is the confirmation of of having and and a control of court. That won't be a reason to turn out, but, but he's confirmed those who didn't want to happen. We'll be we'll be angry and watch it. Now, Emily, what do you think will happen with the court? If Cavanaugh is on John Roberts is so concerned with the court's legitimacy and the the notion that Cavanaugh would be joining that court having pass through on the narrowest of margins in the most contentious. If ways with so much question about his own credibility, his truthfulness and the possibility he is actually a sex criminal. What will the court be like? It's so bizarre to me that someone who made that incredibly emotional reason tation. Well, then put on a black role. And you know March along as court Justice, but that's what will happen. I mean, we saw it happen with Clarence Thomas. Once you're in your chambers, people call you Mr Justice or whatever it is. People calls report justices. There will be complaints galore from critics of the conservative wing of the court when they make any five to four rulings, conservative versus liberals involving issues that relate to women and they will do it anyway because they will have the power to do it. That's what will happen. I can't believe that John Roberts is going to stay his hand in any significant way because you know now breath Cavanaugh has the same kind of, you know, cloud hanging over him that Clarence Thomas to join. You're really good on history on perspective. Do you feel like this cabinet episode regardless of how it turns out is going to be poisoned in the soil of American politics for generations to come. Or do you think it will be forgotten in a way that. These things you know that that once seemed Douglas Ginsburg wants him important a for just one seem important. And now no one cares aid for this was a kind of a special case because he turned out to have one, huge ethical issues. I think I think this plus Merrick, garland create this was Arlen plus trolls court creates on the liberal side kind of. Long term programmatic or in the legal community of the kind we've seen on the Republican side, you know, going back to the Warren court. I mean, if it's if you believe that Republicans have always cared more about the supreme court is voting issue and Democrats and have turned that into a systematic structural protein for trying to reverse the leftward move the port. I think that happens on the. I think that I think the same thing starts to happen more already happening, but but happens on the left. And I think because it has this gender aspect and this and it's not just gender, it's not just like women's issues. The conversations I've had here including now with my wife who was outed herself in her own here is experiencing with an assault. You cannot get any any hotter and to the core. Or of someone's identity and rage than this, and whether you personally experienced it for or come close to it. It's about the strongest feeling you can get get to. So I think it will have enduring of an enduring impact..

"Create IPE indelible, but not necessarily broad memories and then regular people in their memories. It just doesn't that may and the campus yet John to that end. I thought the most astonishing moment in Dr Ford's testimony was that description of the laughter the uproarious laughter between the two, that kind of thing, which would stick. It would just like remain in the memory was so strong because it you, you can just, you can just feel how she felt that moment in and that these this particular detail with stay with you and would be so hard to shake and so sticky in your brain. It was that that was the most powerful moment of the day for me. One of the things Deborah Ramirez said, which was that cavenaugh when he like pulled his pants down, exposed himself, laughed at her, which is, of course completely at odds with the image. He's tried to make paint himself as being this, you know, sensitive advocate of women. There's only one of the most motive for line really unless you'd think that Dr Ford has a long is a long game where she's just been waiting to bring him down. And this moment the play, which I think is preposterous only only he has a motive to lie about it. She does not really. She's not make any money, it's not gonna. It's ruined her life. It's an isolated or light. So that's one big issue. And the other thing that I thought was so telling about the afternoon is that actually the Republicans did not at all engage with Dr Blasi Ford's testimony they it was as though she hadn't even been there, they didn't press him on anything that g mentioned. They just allowed him the conversation in the afternoon from Republicans perspective. Just Kavanagh's on our protecting his honor. He. He was speaking righteously for himself and he'd been characters as needed by democratic plot. There was no sort of substantive engagement with the actual allegations that she made in her incredibly persuasive testimony to that effect. That seems that seems to me maybe because I'm totally wrong. But that seems obvious to me because if you gauge with her testimony as we've seen throughout the week, leading up to this gauge by a male set Republican Senator is very easily characterized as doubting whether this ever happens with women in general, what? What? What? What standing up for his character allows them to say she was telling I found her credible, but then shifts the nature of the question to his carry his. Characters has nation his being dragged through this process. I think if they engaged with with Dr ward too much, they risked running into for lack of a better phrase and the need a Hillbrow. Well, that's true. But of course, the character assassination is coming about because she made this accusation and so can't right. I mean, politically speaking what you said makes total sense. But logically the beginning, it doesn't make. Just dealing with the politics, not and I am not the logic. No. I mean this and. And this is why the lack of closing argument really hurts me, which is nice for the purposes of logic, someone to take everything we'd heard from both sides and tied together with a unified field theory so that this can be, you know, understood with the narrative arc based on the fact that we're. Uncovered today. I, at this point assume that he is going to be confirmed. I think it's very likely they will be a party line vote on Friday morning where they will vote for him out of committee and that it will go to the floor. And I think there will not be enough to stop Collins and Murkowski from voting for him. I just don't think they can withstand the pressure that's going to come from the base after Kavanagh's exceptionally forceful performance and the pressure that will come from Trump on this. If that is the case, Emily, you can disagree about whether you think it's going to happen. I refuse to give up on calms Murkowski. There is just like a betrayal of women that will be unfolding if they do that. I mean, maybe they can come up with them principled way to explain it, but I don't know what it could possibly be. And so I just can't. I can't accept that yet. Although I completely see why you think it's like..

"Yeah, and he was at Yale and all the drinking is totally mixed into that. Julie sweat neck. The third accusers come forward also missing. You know, the FBI investigation that did not happen that one would presumably want if this was really about finding the truth and about clearing your name. I mean, I think that was those were the questions that Cavanaugh just like danced around. It was not convincing about today, and then there's the missing Mark. Judge the the friend who would presumably back up cavenaugh, but it's so toxic because of his own drinking, which is really flagrantly on the record that he the Republicans can't let him into the room. It's only by leaving out all of those people and factors that we can narrow this down this choice. Character assassination this about character assassination that Lindsey Graham wanted to be upset. I just say one quick thing about judge that this occurred to me which is having made it sound like, well, just friend, but you know, wasn't it severally as best friend, but but. Dr forty, put them in the same room like she didn't. I mean, she obviously didn't make up one thing about testimony that was so powerful. Whatever happened. This is not who came in at the eleventh hour because she's a democratic operative. No one can create a detailed narrative that just making it up. Right? And so she put porting having on the same room like why pick those two people. I mean. Making that connection and connecting him to the guy who wrote the book about how drunk he rise, that that that isn't incredible kind of piece of information that kinda wasn't wrestled with by his response about judge in which make it all the more important to have had him there to speak for himself, right? And also the fact that that calendar, which which Cavanaugh was so indignant about an insistent about indicated there was on July first, a party at which judge and Cavanaugh, and the other people that that doctor named were had were at a party at a different place. And so there there's there's so much in her story that that speaks to truth or or or is or is kind of confirmed by other vague ancillary evidence. I mean, you know, we'll obviously never know, but but judge judges absence was extrordinary and and the way. I thought Democrats were very inefficient and ineffective at making big deal about his absence. And you know the Senate Ken force him to come testify, they chose not to because the majority wouldn't want it, but it's it's pretty amazing. The judge has been allowed to skate on this ridiculous statement that he made about the morning, David. I wonder what you think about this. I mean, I think the weakest part of Blasi Ford, not not what she presented, but just like in trying to judge this is that there isn't someone else who were members being at that party. Doesn't mean it didn't happen no reason that it would have been memorable for the other people. There was thirty six years ago, but we don't have the, you know, firsthand corroborating witness. And you know if there was like, if you're gonna try to in a principled way, say I don't think there's enough evidence here to vote against Cavanaugh. I think that's your most principles like helping hand, but didn't I assume you guys have done the same exercise. Is that I've done, which is to think back like, all right, what was I like it fifteen. I think of episodes when I was fifteen and you can think you can call to mind the things that were most amazing difficult or shocking, but almost everything else is just a mass, like it's a sort of sense memory of something that happened there. Something that happened there, but you don't. You couldn't with any accuracy CEO what happened on this date or with these people? It's only there a few very specific things that you could call to mind which were particularly traumatic or particularly exciting. And so the chances that anybody else would remember that party that event, like how anyone got there, what happened if Dr Ford never said anything about it is nil. No one would remember that. So it's not at all surprising that nobody remembers that I know about the way the brain science works, which Emily brought up, you know, a week ago, but then we had a doctor on the show explaining that, you know, when you have a moment of trauma..

"For us, didn't use that as an excuse for him. He's refused to admit that that could be a possibility. And so we're left with this picture of that. He's presented himself in which you know to me his veracity is just like it's just at odds with all these other pieces of information. Yeah, the it was very defensive in and riddle about the question of drinking, and it just seems to be clear from both his friends and also the yearbook page and and his friend judge that that he was obviously more than he's letting on. The second thing is the political attack. Bring up the Clintons I think let let your Republican questioners do all that you. I thought it went. You know, when he talked about his daughter praying for Dr Ford and he talked about what this had done, his reputation, his family. I thought that was the most emotionally powerful. Why get into all the partisan stuff. Let's let the politicians do that. They're gonna do it. Why do you? Why is that helpful to your brief. Especially because then it costs doubt on how you're possibly going to be fair and impartial judge when you get to the bench and you have liberal causes and plaintiffs than Democrats in front of you just but I think he was playing for his audience was two sets of people. One was the president who he did not want the president to yank his nomination. I think he was weak and and so he was very much playing to the president. And then I think he was playing to the men on that committee in a very canny way. I thought it was an incredibly effective performance for those two audiences for the men. He he and for Trump it was his indignation, his denial, his aggressiveness about it, his aggressiveness towards the questioning with something which which we know Trump response to in the Trump respects admires and that that kind of concede territory attitude is is very Trumpian in his very sympathetic to it. And in terms of the the. The sender's himselves. I think they also saw themselves in cabinet and saw the sense like, oh my God, I could be subject to this and look at. He's standing up for his honor in the way that I would stand up for my honor. I think they were the white male Republican senators were very, very strongly identifying with him in that is exactly why they took back. The questioning midway through is like they suddenly recognize I wanna be associated with this guy. I don't need to. I don't need to protect myself any more in the way I did in the morning, but I don't wanna be on record asking any questions about this. I don't want a computer Dr buzzy for like they suddenly they realize like, you know what this guy is going places I wanna be with him. I wanna get on the side of it, and it was the basis going to like it. I totally agree. And then of course the play is that you force doesn't constantly simmer Cousy and I guess Jeff flake if he's still in play you force there. Hands. You make them vote for you because the other forty eight centers plus President Trump are still behind you. That's the play and I was prized, but I think they're totally right about it. I think the play was most exactly articulated by Lindsey, Graham, you know, part of this when it's done is who gets to define the argument who do what the question is. It's going to be decided before the vote. And if you can define that territory, you know you frame the question you win and Lindsey, Graham basically said for any Republicans, thinking about voting against him will be vote for characters assignation. So it's trying to shift it from, do you believe Dr Ford to? Are you okay doing this to him and for cavenaugh sorry for Macau skin Collins. The extra power of that there is it doesn't matter for corker and flake. They're leaving, but base voters in their states are getting a cue from Graham and saying, this is the choice that the Senator is making. And so it's increasing the pain threshold for them from Republicans who see things the way Graham totally right about Lindsey, Graham reframing. And of course what it leaves out of the picture. We're all the people and elements that were missing today. So Deborah Ramirez wasn't there the second woman who accused him of sexual misconduct when she was?.
