The margins aren't there for sustainable business. Usually and so we thirty percent margins for thirty dollars bucks whereas a typical hager company will have like seventy to ninety percent margins for the same price for one bottle.

Self-Objectification and Becoming More Than a Body With Dr. Lindsay Kite
"You mentioned a couple of times self objectification and so for those people who haven't read your book can't please go read it but for them for those. Who haven't could you describe what you mean by self objectifications. Everyone's on the same page. Yeah so self objectification we feel like is really the missing piece of the puzzle in these body image conversations that people have been having for the last twenty years or so self objectification is the practice of envisioning your body from the outside. You're really just monitoring it for how it looks imagining how it appears to other people even when you're by yourself so part of women's mental energy is consistently dedicated to monitoring how we appear and then we view an evaluate and value ourselves outweigh to yuli from an outsider's perspective so self objectification. It takes this holistic sense of self where you are in your body. Of course you're visible person. With an appearance that matters to other and their perception has an impact on you but it makes that the only focus and it splits us from ourselves so it takes us from inside. Our bodies is our home as carefree kids without awareness of how other people see us without that self judgment really seeping in and preventing us from really living our fullest lives and being home in our bodies and it splits us so that we are then watching our bodies from the outside making sure they look right that were closed in the right ways wearing the right things and this splits identities into from a whole person to the person who is really fixated on appearance. Where part of your mental energy is just sapped. It's distracted your physical energy also distracted when you're adjusting your clothes. All the time when he tried to sit in the most flattering position or walking away. That you know you're keeping your gut sucked any of your up. So the double chin isn't showing this self objectification is what keeps us. Trapped in our bodies as prisoners instead of our bodies as our homes
Bitcoin OG Explains How to Keep an Open Mind
"Our guys bang bang. I've got eric here with be doing. The sir makes me on for sure. let's just jump right into. I think was probably one of the most interesting things that you've been spending time on since last time we had you on the podcast which is shaped shift has essentially transformed itself. You've completely ripped out all the centralized infrastructure and you really turned into this new model Where it's an interface to all these decentralized protocols just like what exactly does that entail wide you do it and how's it going so far. Yeah so for. Most of our history shapeshifts was essentially an exchange or we would take one coin from one person in send a different coin from us trade with us and it was non-custodial and that we didn't hold any balance but we were essentially an intermediary to each trade and in twenty eighteen. That's what got us all caught up in all of the financial regulation in which we had to impose. Kyc and I would call highly unethical surveillance on people which we've been fundamentally opposed to So we've been searching for a way out of that you know we can't break laws but i also don't want to spy on people and i don't wanna be a branch of the government surveillance apparatus to how do you have you square that and the way we square. It is by integrating decentralized protocols now so we no longer are an intermediary in any way we do not trade with customers We are no longer a financial institution and that means that we do not need to. Kyc people it means that we do not need to act like a bank and we can let users trade directly against these decentralized protocols in a really really cool way so we've completed that transition now and as of april fifteenth tax day. Ironically we are fully fully out of that mess
Why the Internet Is a Luxury
"Hi emily irony. How many people in the us don't have access to the internet so this is actually a surprisingly hard question to answer. The fcc says that they think it's around twenty million people so that's about seven percent of the population you kind of think of the size of the population of new york state or Florida but some groups say that it's much higher maybe even double the amount. It's a lot of people so it might be new york and florida don't have the internet. Might be new york and florida which is big so before we get into politics are involved here. I think it's important talk about some of the bigger factors and internet access and those two biggest ones are geography and income. Can you explain why geography and income affect whether people have internet or not. Yeah so. I think the way that i think about this is sort of that. Broadband internet isn't access problem. But it's also in affordability problem so we talk a lot about the access problem which is sort of the geography part here rate the. Us is a very very big country. And how do you get internet to every right. Which is why they're a gazillion congressional hearings on rural broadband. Right like everybody has heard about this because there are just as you said. Us a big country. There are mountains in the middle all sorts of challenges to getting people. The internet part to here is the one that we don't talk about. Which is the affordability problem. So basically even if an internet line runs by my house. If i don't have sixty dollars to pay for that i don't have access to the internet so it really is a two part problem
Kevin Durant's Incredible Game 5
"Welcome to an emergency so low. Post hoop collected podcasts. Where i think. I just blacked out for three hours and i'm not even sure what happened but kevin durant played one of the greatest games. A human being has ever played in any individual sport. Ever and with james harden not moving and kyrie irving not available and the bucks ahead by sixteen points or something like that. That's found a way to win. And i just we just had to do a podcast about because the game was that crazy. That good windy Are you coming down from an adrenalin. Hi how you doing you would just you had to do this. And you know we didn't get to sometimes we're at games together like this and we can in together. That isn't the case. But obviously we're going to do it like this slimming thing where you watched games on your computer on a delay. Did you stick with your delay or did you. Did you rush forward because you wanted to see how this how this was. Turning out. The handy thing about about that about close games is that it's easy to catch up at the end because there are so many stoppages time out so by the last five minutes of the game i was caught up and i just i mean we can read the stat line forty nine points. Seventeen rebounds ten assists three steals two blacks sixteen of twenty three from the field. Thirteen sixteen from the life like that's not even real and windy. I didn't even know that it was like allowed to play the entirety of an nba game. Anymore i couldn't believe that he'd never came out of the game. I kept waiting. You usually get the take about with forty five seconds left in the second quarter steal them omitted of respite. He kevin durant played the entire game.
Shima Baradaran Baughman of the University of Utah on the Police Myth
"The movement for black lives as forces societal reckoning about the relationship between police and disaffected communities and has given tracks into removing police funding nationwide. The literature is focused on critiquing the mistrust of police among communities of color due to abuse and marginalization with remedies including police training to encourage treating people with dignity policing literature fails to fully address a core 'cause police mistrust for people of color in the poor to address. The symptoms of policing failure requires consideration of the purpose of function police. Indeed a core problem is a misunderstanding of policing. That i call the police. The police myth is a twofold belief that our primary function of police crime control and that police all crimes. Regularity reliance on the police. Smith may provide societal comfort but as made it difficult to address basic policing failure without understanding. What police actually do and their relationship with crime is impossible to reimagine policing the police crime in large part contribute to the distrust between police and community color creating a cycle where people refused to report to police and police fail to solve crimes. American policing costs hundred fifteen billion per year. It is worth evaluating. This number in terms of the public service received as solving serious crimes only constitutes a tiny fraction of police function. my research demonstrates that police only solve serious felony crimes about twenty percent of the time while the police defunding movement is gaining support. Critics claim that is highly impractical and that reducing policing would increase crime but if police are neither allocating a large portion of their time to addressing crime nor solving most major crimes would defunding police actually increase crime. If this is the moment to consider police reform a meaningful dismantling of the police myth could be part of the solution

Just it activates the different parts of my day and kinda like sets the tone for what the day for what that part of my day is looking for. You know whether. It's energy whether it's ease and i was reading on the harvard an insane because you know how smile is linked to memory. That's why you ever walked by someone and smell the cologne. And it makes you think someone like someone else's yes and you'd be like oh like you like. Wow that's crazy that that made me transports who would completely different time. Something was worse than we take the time to break down the sit and how it smells on somebody else. Never mind sorry. I'm sorry. let me get 'cause. I walked past the woman the day smell like white diamonds and thought about that. Oh mean hateful. Last principal ms mold. I had lightly. I got so mad.

But those but those orders take a direct route to the limbic system. Which has the amid dylan. The hippocampus and this is the region that relates to emotion and memory.

Which is why i feel so heavily connected to these sense and they play such a big part of my day in how i want my data feel and just think that that's so cool and i always wondered if people ever really take the time to create those relationships with sense to of control how they want their data field.

She put them on the cotton ball.

And i personally feel that the ward shows are better this way because there's a lot more creativity put into it. It's not just the artist standing on a stage during the same. Oh to step like they actually had to create a scene of vision an almost like old school music videos. They have budgets because they didn't have to use that budget for the stage. You know like just a lot that was able to be allocated differently. And i think it was to our advantage because the creativity this year has been amazing to see all the apps. You know now even the even The tv shows like seeing how you know on zoom like how they they have to create this new structure now with everyone's in their fucking living room you know. So i don't know i. I think the most exciting part is seeing how people pivot when they don't have access to their usual day-to-day resources Very well said dustin. I think one of the best things come out of this year was cocktails queens fox. All enjoy them. Shot out to my friend claudia jordan. She is the host of a panel. Talk show that she created on fox all she has her own show on their card out loud with claudia jordan but she also has a show called cocktails with queens. That comes on monday. Nights is claudia. Jordan selena johnson. Another friend of mine. Who's a great person. lisa array and vivica a fox in the four of them sit up and literally taught cash shit about what they want. Yes and they have some great guests on there and just hearing their perspectives is really really interesting. So south to the cocktails or queens on fox. Because i have really been known to shit at lisa right went off from arthur brat. Going on there. But you know that's family business. You gotta stay up shit and also shuttled to angelique. She announced a new show on Fox all is well card established with angelie interview based series..

"What's funny is i spoke to The woman. I call my oracle this. So i was talking to her about all my plans for next year and she was like. That's great and it was kinda of cool because she was like you know what's funny is we try to control so many things where we decide like next year. This this this this this she was like that's fine and beautiful and you should have that intention set but leave things a little more open. You know sometimes for god to kind of work magic and and as things are moving and shifting in your life just leave room for those changes to have space and grace you know what i mean and so that it's not me trying to be so controlling the hand of fate so Because i was telling her like the different things. I wanna do in different places and even where i was moving to And you know and she said okay but what if it's not this country and that country. How would you feel and i was like yeah. Let me not be so rigid. Because you know that's how you set yourself up for disappointment to girls right. Yes it is it. But i did appreciate what she was saying. You know 'cause sometimes you can try to be so controlling of things and it's nice to just leave things more open to what the because we don't even know what imagine if i had said are moving to such such country in twenty twenty and then this came You know that would have thwarted. Everything and i would have been so hurt and disappointed. So i get what she means about just leaving enough room for grace so i have an idea of what i want. Twenty twenty one to feel like which includes me moving and just kinda like pivoting in some more Land family personal life being developed a little bit more pouring energy into those new chapters. That i think you know Need my attention But we'll see how the year fields because who knows how we see this come in so i'm also open to whatever god has in store for me how about you. Justin ross I feel just like. I do every year around this time. I'm just trying my best to be my best. I had some really mad shit lined up for this year. That ask like like you know and things will continue to. they will take place. It just wasn't just wasn't possible for them to happen. Literally this year So they will happen. And so i still have those beautiful beautiful things to look forward to and who knows what new opportunities will come my way or that i'll encounter along the way so i'm just renting remaining optimistic hopeful and try my best to be prepared and you know as equipped as i can be to you know just rise up to whatever my challenge is and i mean the good kind of challenge is not the bad guy so yeah that's should i'm on doug like you know i just wanna be Continue to remain authentically. Dustin while refining myself to like i said rise up to certain challenges and tasks and That's just what i'm on. I'm just trying not to cuss. Nobody out Trying to you know always have on clean socks. You know a few things that. I've been devoting my time to but definitely miss my family My parents are a little bit older. So i've been kind of staying away from them because i do live in filthy as new york and i just don't want to mix there Yes i have traveled. You know shot to crystal. Because she's going to let you let me in that house but still steal you know and That's it a scientist. I really wish i could be more specific. Kinda feel like i'm talking in circles. But i don't know i can't so but i'm just excited. I had some great things plan like out. You know what fuck it. I'll spill the beans on one thing. So one thing that i was going to do this year was i was going to do a stand up comedy tour okay. We had like cities picked event. News picked all that shit and we did not announce it but on the flip side number one. I feel like. I can write a better forty-five minutes set now number two. I have so much more material to us and be inspired by when i do take the stage in that way number three. That may not even look like a traditional stand up routine anymore. It may have evolved into some sort of one man show or there may be other performance elements. That have materialized at this point so sometimes you have to hit pause but when you press play again is even better than it was intended to be first so has kind of the lands. I'm looking at you know. And that's just one thing that i was really looking forward to this year. I love being on stage connecting with people. No i love to laugh and nothing brings me more joy than making other people laugh so it was like a natural fit for me to alex. Radio we just been cooking and working hard. So i'm just i'm looking forward to next year and i'm damn sure looking forward to twenty twenty two thank you so you both hit like on the head. I just needed to know if you were the tight because the to whether you the type to really plan ahead. Their manner like all right well. I'm going to do this from this quarter or whatever or do you just kind of I'm the type of person rather my what my processes. I like to just take in as much information as possible and kind of figure out. How wanna move from there as opposed to appropriate planning. It's not necessarily the best. But i just always liked to have information whether i wanna use that are not so when i do get in certain spaces. It's hard for me to share my thoughts and opinions without it being. It's hard for me to leave with opinion and just leave it like it's like letting go with something like whenever we work projects like editing a movie or something having to trim the fat like if you have to get a music video down four minutes and i'm sitting up here at four minutes and five seconds. It's gonna take me days to figure out like why what's going to be important about cutting these five seconds. If you know my vision. I feel like have extended these five seconds. It's just very hard for me to plan certain things because i just feel like always to have information so it was great this year. Everybody had to stop like everybody that plan and everybody that needs something Not necessarily for me period but like you know needs to meet something like weather from the world or for themselves like everybody just kind of had to reset. Nobody was in this mode of well..

I did not realize how much of a dark funky s cloud that trump administration had over me until saturday when those election results got called in favor of joe biden and madam vice president-elect kamala harris and and i just i hadn't felt that way in a long time it was good to see that some people made the right decision to vote on the right side of things as opposed to voting for continued hatred continued. Mistreatment end just a lack of humanity. If felt good to see that it was still some good left in the world so doing doing real good how you doing. I'm wondering what's going to happen though.

He's being cairn terrier karen. Oh they said he'd be. He just looked like a carey. He's actually built like a career but he's being a care in asking to speak to the manager at the polling locations. You know doing all the things that are typical care would do get your ass out. You lost biden. Harris thank you. Oh no. i'm so low number right now. I don't know what was going to happen. He plays be crazy yourself. You you know. I just like dustin made a lot of very good point and i should be feeling real good because of the election. I'm just trying to feel good about today.

"Just as you can appreciate sculpture with your eyes or a work of music with your ears. A work of perfume brings together a collection of elements to create art for your nose. Composers are going to use it accord or they're going to put notes together form a cord and you're constantly mixing these materials to get complete work of music. What exactly the statement perfume. There are some perfumes the market that have eleven or twelve secretaries and there are some perfumes in the market. That have twenty thirty forty fifty. The number of raw materials has tended to fall and one of the reasons. Is that synthetics gives you a control over the medium. Here's the thing. When you hear the word synthetic people start to get a little which makes sense it makes it sound like you're spraying toxic chemicals all over yourself so you can smell like a pretty flower. But the truth is there's a way more nuance to the idea of synthetic versus natural. And it's way more about marketing than safety first of all. There is no natural material in perfume. Okay let's get that straight right out of the gate. I mean this is dumb. People say oh that has rose absolute jasmine and vetiver. And that's all it has and it's all natural You know what all of these materials have been treated with chemicals. 'cause ridiculous there's never been natural materials you don't take something from some meant leaf and then put it in a bottle. Getting any sent from a raw material. Takes a good deal of chemistry. Even the most simple elements require some amount of processing now in rose if you extract a rose and get essence and you extract it with the oldest technology that we use which just esteem. Okay you've got about thousand molecules of those thousand molecules. Only about thirty actually smell none of the other smell so take those thirty. We'll actually if you take the thirty. Only about fifteen of them released smell of roads. And so now. You're down to fifteen and from fifteen. You really can go down to ten eight seven by extracting the center rose from thousands of molecules to just around a dozen means. There's fewer ingredients that can cause allergic and there's fewer elements to test so if something does cause a problem it's way easier to figure out the cause rather than following an industrial process to extract these molecules from natural roses sint companies can simply create these exact same chemical compound synthetically in a safer and more environmentally conscious. Way You can construct a beautiful rose out of four or five materials. But you don't actually have to destroy all these rose bushes and use all this fertilizer and all these chemicals and it really is a more efficient lower carbon way of creating these cemeteries.

"The creative team wanted to have an ocean smell so with this ocean smell. We had gotten in touch with some perfumers and had them give us different samples when we brought him over to the creative team and had them sampling. These will find out that none of them really worked from a trade perspective so we're scratching our heads saying well. What are we going to do in order to get something that creative likes incredible? Buy into in this case we went out and bought some new cotton socks one over the Pacific Ocean and we dropped the sock into the ocean and just saturated it there for a little bit. We then took that. Put it into a plastic bag and we sent it to perfume or that. We're using and had that perfumer recreate that sent. When they sent us back the samples the first reaction from creative was they loved it. It was great. It was exactly what they're looking for until that experience. I never realized that the different ocean waters had a different smell. Depending upon where you were when perfumer find the right mix of ingredients to create that perfect smell the craft and care of the teams behind Disney parks are able to create something magical. One of the exciting parts of my job is after we finish an attraction. And you have the gas going through experiencing it for the first time is standing right outside listening to the reaction seeing their reactions on the hard work that you've done over the past couple of years soaring over California. The people that were leaving the attraction would make comments on the different sense that they smell wild area experiencing the right and the majority of them were running back over getting in line to experience the attraction again so when I go into the Disney theme parks and I hear the guest reactions to the experience of a new attraction that we have opened a look at it and say okay. All of this was worth at everything that we went through prior was worth it. I mean to get that smile on the guests face is just. It's amazing I mean it's one of my most enjoyable parts of the job.

"Yeah friends come a little closer to the fire that's right I make my cereal the old fashioned way billable with grain binding agents and sugar and I stir them up in a bowl and I kept them over this in this kill and that's how I make my cereal my name is Justin mcelroy I'm cereal enthusiasts Oh you don't you don't for Jerem? CEO of the same kiln I mean amateur mistake I get it but I'm Dan bear and I am a true story blacksmith and make this boom the bowl the kitchen table kitchen the milk and you make the milk yourself don't ask too complicated series levers and pulleys involves fire this is the empty bowl it's a meditative podcast about Syria which sounds like a joke but it's is not we make a podcast that is designed to be a a relaxing calming experience That just happened to be about the best food I think best food around in town that's where I'm at I don't WanNa roughly feathers the like pizza but cereals the best for me eighty you think it'd be tough this long pizza biweekly God quad weekly let's let's not spending more time Extolling the virtues of cereal right down to the nitty gritty and I am I'm not blue about these I t's stories we've got coming out of high in fact you might say about this first three stories I'm very excited I mean in some sense of the word everything we're gonNA talk about evolves blueberries I don't know why that sort of the hit vary in terms of the cereal market right now but I'm all for it because when it's done right it's really right but basically these first three stories come from the same source which was a twitter follower named Devon who I'm very thankful to for a sort of sharing can insider glimpse at some cereals that do not have their box art developed yet but very much exists as cereals in both name concept and execution but the first is something we sort of knew about obviously we all remember a couple weeks back when we were talking about Eggo cereal and how the brand said on twitter that if they get ten thousand retweets they would bring back cereal and I remember we we try to recall them on their bluff saying that you kind of know how long it takes to make a new serial so it's very unlikely that their decision to do this is actually contingent on anything we do right right it's not a it's not up to us but I sort of like to think that we swayed it because by the time that we mentioned it already been like several days after they tweeted it but it was it was lingering very purgatory four thousand retweets but days after we talked about it on the show which has shot up over ten thousand so it's either we made it happen win or they faked it so either way I think we Where the winning party here they kind of threw us for a loop in that there's no word yet that the actual maple cereals coming back but we do have photo evidenced now the blueberry eggo cereal that is coming soon from Kellogg's I love that flip mask and because they combine the blueberry and Sergi flavors in With the Harrow piece I think that is going to be a g annual delight yeah I mean obviously we're all we're all missing waffle crisp it's left that griddle hole in my heart and so that's why I'm a little bit confused this isn't tapu a little bit worried just because the Cap'n crunch blueberry pancake cereal wasn't all that in terms of you know the maple leanness so going into this one with a little bit of trepidation I I would very much like for you to continue well this on obviously can almost entirely can be attributed to you for returning but blueberry muffin toasters formerly known as Blueberry Muffin tops We had a rumor that they were coming back we had like a shot of the image or the Sarah a shot of the logo but now we have an actual photo of the cereal which not is looks exactly like it used to so it seems they heard the cries of us again and again on this show and they made it happen I This is a thrill for me I I'm a died the wall Blueberry Muffin tops fan so thrilled to have it to have it back it is a is a lovely lovely area that I I am so excited to have back on on store shelves the quote that the contribute to you on the box if I see you've put in a A bit of Blueberry Muffin tops more into the supposed here a video of the bag station pass that we did at our our our blueberry Muffin tops event that we held on that one packs Boston what are the odds we can make something like that happen again by sheer force of will I think they probably learn their lesson from the spent the first time which is to say too much too much money but people are still talking about it here we are years later it's true let's let's let's keep going another more berry more vary return return four fairy so this one's probably the least interesting but coming from the same source we also know that mixed berry filled mini wheats are returning this was something that ah first appeared as touches fruit in the Middle Mixed Berry mini wheats which is just a whole hassle to say so glad that they brought back the same you know probably generics blend of strawberries blueberries raspberries that we normally see in mixed berry confections and you know sort of putting that little dollop inside the defrosted mini wheats I can't say that I'm terribly excited for this because I know it's just GonNa be really dry but I mean if that's your that do the texture with the Phil shredded many weight I find that doesn't really do anything just because they don't put enough of it in there okay I'll be obvious I'm not surprised that they didn't sort of Turkey base it to the brim with actual jelly but you know how actually crunchy and like hey it is beat shredded wheat brick that it's very much like finding you know the the blueberry needle in the haystack right we've got this is not I like this this is adjacent this for this final story cereal adjacent yeah like I was saying earlier obviously it's been a little bit center latest episode but when we were first going to record this there was like nothing happening in the real world and then the day or two after all this blueberry news came up but I was sorta strange find things that were serial Jason and I still think this warrants inclusion just because I have it in my fridge right now actually waiting to try but board and farms introducing three New County Fair inspired milks. Obviously we've tackled some cereal Jason things like Pompton hurts but I think milk is pretty much fair game yes right but especially when the the flavor of these milks are respectively cotton candy blueberry cobbler and Banana Taffy milks banana taffy is such a wild swing like what a big a big vulgar call the aching they're with that what you could've done elephant ear milk yeah like just as sweet sentiment Kinda deal Oh back they think that'd be cool it's just a wild swing that this survey and it's such a strange leap to make I think we talk a lot about how like the cereal industry is struggling to keep pace with like new consumer audiences but Milkman the early seems to be having an identity crisis this but After I I tweeted about these the company reach out to me about mailing me some sort of a a cooled container they were very very specific about the fact that someone it should be there to receive the milk's before they went to a lot of pressure yeah but I mean they're in my fridge right now and it's just a matter of what specific serials should I pair each of these with to make you know the perfect cocktail thoughts on that You know I think like the first thing that sprung to my mind is like wheaties and Banana Taffy like that to me sounds like really that sounds very good or like maybe like cotton candy with kicks like that might be nice yeah it's gotTa be something subtle really yeah that you absolutely Eh but I was gonNA say Blueberry Cobbler and Golden Grams almost a done deal my book Oh boy oh boy that would be delicious wow I will be honest with you I have held off on reading your view of this first area because I am so excited about it an I I am so hopeful that it delivers in the big bowl flavor department so just to preface we've gotten a lot of what seasonal limited edition cheerios do you have like a complete track record of trying most if not all of them county honest I told actually this is just a specific flavor that we've talked about this underrepresented in the world that I would love to see more more progress on I think it's that isn't my main the main appeal for me yes you draw out the lead here a little bit more we've had strawberry cheerios great pumpkin spice cheerios probably the best pumpkin spice cereal peach cheerios for all right and then most recently the blueberry cheerios which I think you know obviously there ahead of their time and these are the blueberry series are going to have a heck of a time catching up but none of those does compared to in my opinion these latest one's toasted coconut cheerios. Something that I heard about I saw the boxer ahead a sort of a beach umbrella in it and I after having tried toasted coconut choose already I have to say this is this is a top contender for the year in my book wow I didn't expect that even the biggest coconut person like almond joy mound but they really nail it here in that it's not the the boring like Baker's coconut or tropical coconut that you see in like your Special K's and your other addition varieties that sliver these little chocolate chunks of coconut in there right now they really do the honey nut cheerios approach here of just glazing on a very like macaroni coconut forever it's just enough understated toy prop up that that cheerios boat base and really makes thing that's much more minimalistic yet effective than pretty much anything else that's being put out in a series game right now wow that is huge praise is it is there anything texture textually the his changed for this I know sometimes with some of the Cheerios we've seen like a little bit of like extra extra crunch on there is there any textual component on this or is it just a coconut flavor now it's basically like you so you have your plain cheerios which are super dry in place when you have your chocolate peanut butter cheerios that are all powdered up dusted up but these are like the honey nut cheerios and that their love it sticky you know a little bit it was a thin veneer on top of it but it's nothing that you would notice an industrial mental sense definitely.

"That only lasted twenty four months, and then we had an amazing, resurgence since the bottoming in March of two thousand nine and so since the vision fund are backing entrepreneurs that have global ambitions on a very big scale and because for long term, oriented investors, we could be patient to ride out any of those near-term economic cycles. And because we have the balance sheet, we can support continued investment in our companies to gain additional competitive advantage when other companies, particularly incumbents may be constrained, in a different way than our investments, and I experienced that firsthand shutter fly when the financial crisis hit, we went from growing the one percent in two thousand and seven down. To fourteen percent in eight and sixteen percent Onen. But we had cash on the balance sheet, we were free cash flow positive. We were still growing where many, consumer companies were negative growth and instead of pulling back, I just got the team to focus more, and we continue to invest and then in two thousand and ten we re exceleron to thirty eight percent growth and far outpaced the competition, and we never looked backwards. And so from that experience should we hit a economic speed bomb. I think our portfolio companies and the entrepeneurship that we have the pleasure, partnering with, and we'll be in an advantage state against the competition. At about the portfolio that always for me from the outside, as you said about the show. I'm probably one of the world's biggest Ventian nuts. And we see much about so thanking knees, I would love to kind of stall from the toll today. We've seen a variety of different. Softbank deals zero on the high end to wangle slightly smaller end. Kyle jeff. How do you think about for the construction, stay with soft bind? It's a great question. And if you go back and look at mosses history of investing, he caught the PC in the software wave in the beginning of his career, and the formation of soft Bank, which was really software Bank, when it first started he then saw the adoption of the internet than it was broadband, and mobility and today it's the convergence of artificial intelligence machine. Learning data science and the merger between human and machine. And so we're writing these very large technological shifts that aren't going to happen over one or two years, but they're going to happen over decades. And when you paint that picture and you think about that. It is a vision, what we're trying to achieve is to give freedom level capital connections and counsel to portfolio companies to allow them to scale on a global basis, and to invest in Aren, D, And technological differentiation on a massive scale. And so it's really exciting and we have the flexibility and fun to do early stage, mid stage, late stage to do cry to do public to do by Nardi investments to do majority investments, but our sweet spot is meaningful. Size minority investments in mid to late stage companies, and that cuts across many different industries from biotech to grow botox to consumer to real estate to logistics to fintech to enterprise software to infrastructure across the globe. And so that flexibility allows us to be patient. Look for those truly rare and unique companies that are led by mazing management teams. And to be able to spend the time doing the diligence to get conviction around invest. These Jeff, but I invest one to three million pounds say you invest slightly larger amounts. I'm sure diligence processes. This the diligence process like this extraordinarily infamy compared to say earlier station, vestments often, we see being made in the knees. I think it does differ considerably from early stage investment when you're doing a seed or series a investment here really thinking about two or three things. One is what is the Tam or dreadful market for this product or service. Second, do I believe that this novel approach is different enough and simplistic enough that people are willing to take out their credit card or their checkbook into pay for the service? And do I believe that this entrepreneur and her co founders are the right team to go prosecute against that idea where when you're doing late stage? It looks more like the type of diligence traditional private equity firm would do. We're mapping out the entire value chain of an industry. We're understanding where the economic rents are were meeting with both the incumbents in the startups and understanding where we think the leverage point. Points are or meeting with the entire management team that competition industry experts..

"This is the twenty minute with me. Harry Stubbings at age Stubbings nineteen. Ninety-six with two on Instagram but straightens day because I think this is simply one of the best shows we've ever done. It was such a joy for me.

And so with that, I'm so thrilled to welcome fin bonds partner first round capsule, one of the most prestigious unsuccessful early stage funds of the last decade with a portfolio including the lice of Uber square Worby Parker hotel tonight, goats, patient ping atrium and many, many more incredible companies as thin. In his own words. He learned the business of startups helping grow and one from fifteen million dollars to two hundred and twenty five million dollars in revenue as creative director for footwear and started his own fitness video game company producing yourself fitness, the first game of its kind for XBox PlayStation two.

"Them. How do you think about decentralized teams from ineffectiveness in a massive perspective? Yeah, I generally think decentralized teams won't work. I think in the very, very early days of any platform they can work and it's because there is not that much competition and a lot of we need to build out his infrastructure and you have a small number of engineers they can communicate with each other to get those things done over time. What happens is you get more and more sophisticated operators, you have a more and more complex projects that require more and more integration and communication. And so I think you see a recentralization of teams, and so there's no substitute for fifteen or twenty or thirty people physically being in same space. Face all the time. If I sort of play that forward a little bit, even more, I think potentially contrarian view here. Even more is that I think this will actually recentralize back in Silicon Valley. And the reason is that at a certain scale, what's it going from three people to twenty five people, two hundred people to five hundred people. Once you start hitting real global scale on these things, how you go about building accompanying how you go about building an organization. Let's say organization because some of these things may not even be companies how you thinking about building organizations that are affected and can scale and have global impact is tribal knowledge and tribal knowledge really sits in the heads of the people who've done it before and the vast majority of those people are in Silicon Valley. And so I don't think it's an accident that if you look back at the last thirty years, you know with PC's software internet one, oh, social share economy, transportation as a service. And now self-driving that all of those ways have their epicenter in Silicon Valley. Of course, there are some some notable exceptions like Amazon, but buying large that centralization as happened repeatedly in Silicon Valley. And I think it's because this tribal knowledge of how you build organizations that can scale. Isn't the heads of a lot of people here. So what I would expect will happen is actually over time crypto companies will actually recentralize in large part to Silicon Valley. In terms of practicalities, obviously, a lot of these, the decentralization, engineering wise is g to coast and just an inability to scale at coast numbers wise. How do you think about the practical side of affordably scaling engineering teams and how that kind of loosen other mulcahy's? Yeah, it's, it's a great question. I think in general, the bay area is much more expensive than most of the rest of the world, but your best engineers are ordering magnitude more effective than your average engineer. And so very small number of people who can start these things off and then build teams around them. We'll still agree that value. I think a lot of those juniors are still here, and so as long as you can get five to ten of those really, really good people in one place, even if you have to pay them twenty five percent or fifty percent more. Let's say often it's worth the cost. And so I think that pattern will play out until the cost of having those engineers is commensurate with the value that they create. And so if engine in the bay area cost literally five to ten x more than they do in Berlin. Let's say, I think you'll continue to see that happen. Hopefully doesn't get to that. Hopefully we're able to address these issues, but I think we actually have some runway to go put another way. I think there are these network effects in Silicon Valley that will keep people here will make them significantly more effective and network affects take long longtime to degrade. You look at companies like EBay or pay pal. I mean, they actually just get stronger and stronger over time, but it's pretty amazing to look at home net with sex work, and they're real network affects in Silicon Valley that will keep pulling people in that doesn't mean it lasts forever, but I think we're not eating reclose actually, this thing collapsing, I mean, I'm having so much on. I'm just like a twenty minute VC with absolute slight. This terrible main clearly, but I do have into the far around. So as I say statement, and then you give me your immediate, how does that sound? Okay..
