Tv i'm pretty sure he made reference to jet fuel now still bush knew he kept saying what hitter not being paid to fall. That was one of the things a little bit stiffly. This is the idea that you just have to accept that wrestlers when the not wrestling just walk around in wesley penalties also and you watch wrestling and someone like silence out and then when i the say you and your patents anyway. Just much more realistic. If you run out jeans and a t-shirt to straight talk. I'll be honest. I don't like to picture macho man. Randy savage not dress in cowboy hat with.

N.H.L. Fires Referee for Comment on Penalty Call
"Well the nhl has announced that. Tim peel has been fired immediately. He will never work. Nhl games now in the future. Colin campbell announced it this morning. By saying in part there is no justification for his comments no matter the contexts or its intention in the nhl will take any and all steps necessary to protect the integrity of our game. This is incredibly overzealous on part of the nhl. What do you think yes a little much. I mean i get why they're doing it because you just don't want to see. They have an agenda. Coming in like things are predetermined. I mean you. And i both know what he's saying. Is i want to keep the game from getting out of control. So we're setting the tone early. I mean that's that's what ref do but you're not supposed to acknowledge it and i think it's just they don't need to fire him though like you know. And maybe they could. They could quietly bring him back but it seemed like they were making him a scapegoat for this. I got a. I got an email from a friend of mine. Who's a referee. And i gave you the name. Because he's still rafts yup but here's what he said. I've officiated thousands of basketball games in my life. Tim peel said what every single official has thought. During a many times we just either keep it to ourselves or speak about it to our partner at halftime when it's only us in a room in a basketball game. Let's say the foul count is one side. Maybe it's six. Oh the calls were all one hundred percent correct and the foul count should be six. Oh if not more we can look up at the scoreboard and see the count and we also gear up from the coach. Who said he's had six called against his and none of four forum and if there's a break in the game wrestled get together. And if they're veteran officials yeah they will say they need to call one against the team with zero fouls the next time. That team comes anywhere close to committing a foul. That's the one that's going to get called if the files were six. Oh against them. There's no way we'd call that foul but here comes a whistle. Both coaches know. It's coming to and this guy. My friend is exactly right. Yeah i for the initial shock time gambling going on here further. Okay the rest being mic'ed up. There's a lot of players that we i know about the nba. They have players are miked. Up and coaches are miked up. There's somebody who they don't all go on the broadcast. I mean there is a feed where the unedited sound this. Somebody leaks it but mostly the only stuff that the the broadcast air has been sort of pre-approved somebody from the league. That's sitting there listening to it saying okay. We use that use this. This'll be good juicy and a years. Do you remember when the when the warriors were playing the rockets and steve kerr was there was a there was audio of steve. Kerr saying something about. Kevin durant like kevin needs v or aggressive or. I can't remember what he said but it was something like he needs to. He can't just take over there. You know whatever it was and it got through like we they aired it on the broadcast and then it became a thing game. Steve kerr got asked about it and stuff and he was rightly pretty upset. Because that's the exact kind of thing that you know the this whole thing of biking coaches and players up. It's based on trust. It's based on this idea that you know you're going to kind of protect me from something like that happening. Right of of in the moment and the emotions of the game coach yells at star player star player yells at so teammate. Whatever which is literally what happens in every single game if that gets taken out if that gets blown up that quote gets goes everywhere like then it becomes a problem for these coaches and players. And they're not gonna let themselves get mike up

Karpathy Talks Deep Learning, Elon Musk, FSD Beta, & Waymo Competition
"Our here and today we're going to be mostly talking about some takeaways from a recent interview of tesla's director of artificial intelligence. Enrique are happy on a podcast called the robot brains podcast which i willing to in the show notes. The whole conversation is about an hour and five minutes. I would highly recommend listening to all of it. I thought it was very approachable. And hopefully it helps set the stage for a conversation. We're going to have later this week. Quick look at the stock tesla today finished down one point two percent to six hundred and sixty two dollars sixteen cents not a bad day overall. Considering the nasdaq itself finished down. One point one percent are going into the carpet. The interview again great interview. I think it's super interesting in terms of timing right now because this is so current tesla's obviously working on the fasd beta right now. Andre did share some thoughts on that which we will get to you. I do wanna give a little bit of background though for people that aren't familiar with andres background so he has a history and education research again. A lot of notoriety in the field of artificial intelligence and specifically in deep learning. Because of his course at stanford about deep learning which was really the first of its kind and those lectures were also shared on youtube. Gained a ton of traction. There so andre was teaching that class at stanford got his phd. There after that he joined open. A i search scientist spent a couple of years there but at that point in his life he had been doing research for about a decade reading papers writing papers so he talks about that period of time in this interview and joining tesla saying quote. I was definitely getting a little bit restless. At that time i felt like these algorithms are extremely and can really move the needle on some very incredibly important problems in society. I wanted to take a more active role in doing that. So i was getting a bit restless. I was looking at different opportunities and say startups and things like that and then one thing that kind of happened on the side is because open at the time under the umbrella of ulan organizations few times we were interacting with people at tesla and i was kind of consulting a little. Bit for some of the problems and autopilot. I kind of realized that they were dealing with fundamentally a deep learning computer vision and this was the fundamental constraint to whether or not this product were work so i was kind of intrigued by that but it was just a few consulting opportunities here and there. I sorta spoke to the team. But at this time when i was getting really wrestles to apply this technology in the industry actually ilan reached out and asked me. Hey you've been sort of consulting for the team. Do you actually want to join and lead the computer vision team here and help get this car to drive. And so he taught me a very kind of correct time. When i was really getting restless and i feel like this is perfect and i think i can do this. I think i have the skill to contribute here. This is an incredibly impactful opportunity. And i love the company and of course i love yuan and everything that he's doing and so i would say that again was a moment stars align for me and i felt very strongly that this is the right thing to do at this time and quote so long quote there but i appreciated having that background. I've always kind of wondered if andres heart was really in the research realm and if you lon had kind of convinced him and pulled him away from that but that doesn't sound like the case from how hundred describes. He said that at that time when he made that decision to go to tesla he and his colleagues at opening i had joked around that he'd probably only make it about six months. And here we are four years later. I'm really happy about that. Because i think under just a perfect fit for this role. Not only does he have an incredible understanding of the technical challenges that tesla's facing but he also seems to have the right personality for it. He talked about working with yuan. Then also get into some of the technical stuff here in a second but he said quote. He's a double edged sword in terms of working with him because he wants the future yesterday and he will push people and he will inject a lot of energy and he wants to happen quickly. And you have to be of a certain. I think attitude to really tolerate that over long periods of time. But he's around some self with people who get energy out of that and also on the future to happen quicker. Those people really thrive at tesla. And so i happen to. Also i think be like that and so i don't personally mind it. I actually thrive on it and the energy of getting this to work faster and quote. I think this anecdote probably serves as a good reminder. That high turnover isn't necessarily a bad thing just by default you'll often see articles without a lot of data honestly being critical of tesla for having high turnover especially in management. But from the outside. It seems like they go through these cycles where they have a lot of turnover in short periods of time and then they find the person that's right for the role and also vice versa that the role is right for them and seems like those people tend to stick for a long long time better to have high turnover work through a number of different people and find the right person than to stick with the wrong person for too long anyway. The other salient point. That andre made about you on came about from a discussion on tussles hardware in the vertical integration. Andre said quote. I think to a large extent yulon sees ai as just a fundamental pillar of a lot of this technology and wants to invest in internal teams that develop a lot of this technology and co design. Everything tesla is definitely about vertical integration and squeezing a lot of juice from the benefits of that and quote. He continued on with that line of thought and mentioned co design. Three or four times. I think which is really one of the most important and special elements of tesla. This co design idea particularly how the organization is structured around that idea. Tesla's purpose built hardware chips for full self. Driving is obviously a great example of that structural batteries a great example of that before that you had super bottle than the octo valve the list just goes on and on and overtime continues to grow so pay very very close attention to that when andre says that you on sees a i as a fundamental pillar of a lot of their technologies we're still in the very early innings of that actually showing up in tesla's business are at so getting into some of his more technical comments than this is going to be a really long quote. I apologize for that. But i think it's a good primer. So he was asked. How would you describe deep learning to your parents. Andre says quote. Let's use a specific example. Because i think it's useful so let's talk about image recognition we have images images are made up to a computer of a large number of pixels and each pixel just tells you the brightness of the red green and blue channel at that point

Thank you thank you for having me. Yeah so a s- could have you on the show. Congratulations on the book. Thank you now a little bit about you before we get started here with the book You grew up in a small coastal town thing. It's cure north carolina and jerry. All the that always things with the that you say security hurly-burly you started writing it East carolina university and you now writer and teacher living in asheville With your husband for children. And so how does how does Being raised in a small town And the life that you're leading inform your writing and and particularly the book book of thorns. Yeah i loved growing up in in kerry beach. It was ideally in. Every way. And i think i do still have that small town Sensibility of family and neighborhood and community and that definitely informs my writing the year thornton. Honey is sort of unofficially set in asheville. I i don't name it as as asheville but Locals and folks who've been would certainly recognize some of the places and i think that just the sense of of community and family It really informs how i ride as as opposed to you know. I don't tend to set things in in big cities. Ashville is actually a pretty small town A really cool town but a pretty small one and so i. Yeah i definitely think that you know when. I'm when i'm crafting a story. I'm really thinking about the the characters and And how they how they function within their whole community are saw Emmy right Sort of about the mystery and wonder of life as you say and it's Contemporary fiction that focuses on these themes of second chances redemption and finding the beauty and the world around us. And i'm curious to what draws you to these things i think that on drawn to those particular themes of of second chances and redemption and learning how to see the the beauty in the around us because it's such a universal set of of themes. I think everyone is going through. You know that kind of thing. We're all making mistakes and hoping that we're given second chances. We're looking for forgiveness and very often in situations where we're called to forgive others And the the beauty in the world around us. I think sometimes we get so wrapped up in things that aren't going well or especially two thousand twenty the way we wish things were that we very often don't stop to take stock of of the things that that are wonderful and the the small beauties especially i think is is really what draws me is is the the small things that that make our live special. So what kind of teaching a year engaged in. Oh gosh i have. I think i have the best teaching job ever. I teach mostly creative writing and some literature to middle school and high school. Kids through a program called elevate life and art which is a home school enrichment program. So i have very small classes but I'm lucky enough to have classes filled with students who really want to learn to write and students really love to read. So it's the it's the best of all worlds. As far as a teacher is concerned really engage students. And who really love the subject. And and i feel really lucky. I've got some kids in my writing classes. That are just amazing. I feel like i'm i'm seeing. The you know the the the little middle school faces of people that will be on the shelves and in the future. Some some really wonderful talent and and i'm i'm happy to be part of their journey when when i started writing i was in that same age but You know typically in school. You don't really get that opportunity to to to write creatively in your classroom. So i'm i'm happy that they have that in and hoping that that it will keep those fires lit for them

The Psychology of Sales
"Most of the fear that we have around the idea of sales centers on one thing. And i'm sure you know what that is. It's rejection right as human beings. We are hard wired to avoid rejection. We wanna fit in. We wanna be accepted and it is evolutionary favorable for us to do so. But it's also not possible in business to attempt to sell your product or service without being rejected. Unfortunately i mean think about it. Just think about average conversion rates. That's the rate of people who buy from you. In comparison to the people who just come into contact with your product or service in the market like whatever that percentages and on average it varies from two point five percent for like cold online traffic or leads to maybe fifty percent. If you have a highly qualified highly highly qualified warm in person lead so that means at best like the best scenario. You are killing it. If you're rejected half the time you just can't avoid it but what i find is even deeper than that surface level evolutionary fear that rejection sort of brings up an us even deeper than that is the psychological meaning that we give it if someone rejects you. What does it mean about you. Ps this pauses intentionally long awkward to get you to think about it. Think about that. what do you make. It mean when somebody tells you know during a sales conversation a lot of people you make it mean something about you. You think. I'm bad. I did it wrong. They've rejected me. They hate me. I'm awful at this and we'll get into this more and part two of the conversation next week but have you ever thought that. Maybe they just didn't need what you're selling. Could it be as simple as that has nothing to do with you but regardless almost as a knee jerk reaction we make it mean something about us which is ultimately what leads us to fear sales and feel compelled to avoid putting ourselves in that situation as people. We don't typically love to receive feedback that tells us that we're awful or wrong or damaged in some way so the short answer is we avoid it. We avoid situations where we'll get it and this is a perfect segue into what to do about it. There's this really cool concept in psychology right now that basically amounts to psychological distance being able to create psychological distance. Between you the intentional thinking true real you and a set of thoughts or feelings so being able to create that distance between you and thought a set of thoughts and feelings that allows you to experience them. You're not trying. Avoid that to avoid them. But you don't get so hooked or tangled up in them. Let me give you an analogy. That might help make things a little bit more clear. Imagine you are in a swimming pool. And you're holding a beach ball and that beach ball represents all of the punitive and negative thoughts and just grows of verse of feelings that come up when you experience a rejection. Many times were motivated to stuff that ball away to get it out of our sight so we try to stuff it underwater. We wrestle with it. We push it down out of sight as hard as we can to no avail. It keeps bopping back to the surface and hitting us in the face over and over. Again avoidance doesn't work. But what if what if you just let go of the ball. Let it float their float around in the pool while you went about your business and had fun that beach ball of iggy thoughts emotions. It's still there. You're just not wrestling with it anymore. It's there you can see it. You're not avoiding it. But you're allowing it to exist a bit further away from you there. Some distance there. That's the idea was psychological distance. We still experience notice and are aware of our icky thoughts and feelings but we put distance between ourselves in them. We allow them to exist without wrestling them and getting caught up in them. We don't avoid them and then stuff them down only to have them hit us in the face by surprise or even worse control our behavior. So how do we do this. we do. We do this through language. If there's one thing. I wish people understood about how our minds work is how hard wired our minds are for language. Language is one of the things that sets our human being brain apart from the brains of nearly every other animal were special in that way but because we have the capacity for language we also have unique problems and issues that come up as a result of that skill or ability so the things that we hear from others and especially the things that we say to ourselves whether it's intentional or unintentional it shaped so many of our subsequent thoughts feelings and behaviors i wanna unpacked something. I just said the things we say to ourselves unintentionally or intentionally. We can have an intentional thought right now. I want you to think about a purple banana. I want you to think about summertime. I want you to think about an elephant. I want you to think about a honda civic. You can intentionally have those thoughts you can bring them up the unintentional thoughts. Those are the really tricky ones. And those are the ones that were kind of talking about here. That tend to happen to us in this beach. Ball of thoughts and emotions. They're the ones that are the running. Commentary the habitual ones the automatic ones that happen in situations especially emotionally charged ones there particularly damaging their they come up without us wanting them to. We didn't create them. We're not the one who thought them they just happen. That's just a thing. Our mind does as an artifact of having the ability to process and understand and create language so that means that our thoughts are incredibly powerful. The things we say to our selves through our thoughts are incredibly powerful
Poet grapples with coals legacy
"Arsia whale. Poetry is often inspired by nature te growing up. He wandered the hills of rural pennsylvania. It's still possible to do things like get lost in the woods here if you want to. It's still possible to find places where the night. Sky is completely unpolluted by artificial late but the region he's from is known more for coal than treason stars. And in his recent book of poems called toothsome ceelo grapples with this legacy. He says the economic benefits of coal mining came with a big cost for many miners like his grandfather. And great-grandfather both ended up succumbing to complications from work. It's called black lung. Disease urge the accumulation of coal sediment in the lungs strip mining has also scarred the earth and in the town of centralia a coal mine fire has burned underground for more than fifty years in his poetry.

A Look Back: Four years since one of West Virginia’s deadliest floods
"Pastor aaron trig has a lot of good things to say about reno west virginia where he used to live people were just happy and joyous and had a lot of expectation for the future. Renal is small about fifteen hundred people. Live there. It's got a school and grocery store and a couple of stoplights pastor. Aaron lived close to main street. I live right down the street from the baseball field in a one story house that backed up to a creek and before the flood happened. You can hear the baseball field just going crazy and the football field is especially football time. It was just wild. And i will take my dog and walked down there and watch the kids play and watch the cheerleaders and the flood is like the dividing line in right now how things were before june twenty sixteen and how they were after because everything changed. There was a really big rainstorm. Really heavy. a lot of water fell in just a few hours. And just so you can imagine this part of the country is the appalachian mountains. There's a lot of fog. Big gorges rivers and a lot of towns are built on the low ground in the valleys on the rivers. That's how is the creek runs through the middle of town. Pastor aaron was at home when the creek started rising and you can hear the water up in the mountains crash trees and the water started just gushing. And next thing you know. Is that our waste. It was evening very restless night. Triggs house was already underwater so he took shelter on the second floor of his neighbor's house. You can hear people screaming and hollering for help especially a lot of elderly people that we try to get some of them out. But we couldn't and you can hear them hollering for help and people screaming and hollering and the water gushing. It was a real wrestling snyder. Roll just no piece of law. I did a lot of praying that night. Rescuers got to trig boat in the morning in all at least twenty. Three people in west virginia died in the floods and since then a lot of people have left businesses closed. The town is struggling. And i think it's easy to look at a place like right now and think it's an outlier. A tiny town wiped out by an act of god. But that is not. What i see. Reno is not an outlier. It's a bellwether because one of the big problems in reno after the flood was that people didn't have the money to rebuild their homes and that is something that's getting more and more widespread as climate driven flooding gets

Azure and .NET with Labrina Loving
"We're gonna be talking dot net and the cloud and a very aware as we've regarding the so we're recording this nineteen of november twenty twenty. Don't that five is not very long. It's been out for about a week or two week. Old week-old excellent. I mean the have been the they release candidates but this is like the official as he is here so i'm likely going to end because obviously because of the time cast pop machine whibley. We're recording this in advance of time. So there's likely going to be time. Tony said hey. So when dot net call superseded by don't at five so please bear that in mind everyone who's listening we're regarding this couple months ahead of time but So festival before we talk about anything right. You've set yourself you've been in this this whole this industry for for almost twenty years right to vote for me. I'm you know. That's that's i mean for anyone. That's a long time right. That's that's a whole bunch of innovation that has happened since then like twenty years ago with talking about dot net was like an intranet based technology for inside of the business and now it runs a huge portion of the web. You've got as you. all suppose azure. I'm not sure how. What the official brennan nell right or wrong way okay. So we've got as your as you that that whole thing. And that's that's running dot net presumably or you can ruin your dot net thing on it and and we've gone from like i say we've gone from small web services to scaled micro services and video games and consoles all running dot net. You can never internet on fridge which is just blows my mind. I've gotta got a bunch of raspberry pies somewhere around here that are controlling my bet soon. I just bought a house. So we're excited about you. Know making our whole house smart enabled so i'm excited to start using dot net korir on a bunch of raspberry pies and the you know controlling controlling how long my stepdaughter gets to use the internet. So it's gonna be fun. It's brilliant is one of these technologies the just scales almost everywhere. Are you talked about the raspberry. Pi oko another respite. Pi four hundreds pien inside of a keyboard Is one big folk kit. And i've been using that to do sorts of crazy don net things of the past weekend. I'm teaching roberta. Who's not a developer code with it so it was like. Hey come on what i do. And he's just just the keyboard and while he came over before they Before the unfortuna- say over in the uk. We've had like a lockdown so nobody can go anywhere and so he came over a few days before that and we couldn't get a moment times we staying here for the duration so by the time you're listening to this. Hopefully he's going home. I thought to keep me busy. Teach him to wrestle. Code is totally all right. That's that's fun but then so if we're looking at almost twenty years in the industry what a in your opinion. Some of these innovations that have really changed the game. I mean we talked about chaperone being collaborative bringing everyone together. Dot net clearly has changed a whole bunch of stuff. Is it purely a microsoft thing you thinking or is it just a his aesthetic. I think for me. I i love tech but i also love the people in tack and i think for me. What's with what i've loved. That's change is sort of how we work together. So i remember when i first started in tak started a working for this We built the first installation of of of this insurance company allstate s- Their first online web presence So we built their i kind of web application and bad took hundreds and hundreds of people and it was all these very very very siloed teams. Right there is a huge team of leg database administrators. I have no idea what they did. There is a huge infrastructure team. And i have no idea i i mean i got a chance to like talk to some of them. But there's a huge infrastructure team. There is a huge Devops will be call them the the bill guys but the cuge build than a team and there was all these teams That came together to build this amazing web application but we were all really really really siloed. I felt like and It was such a very everything was so very very very specialized whereas you flash forward today and I feel like the development team and You know infrastructure engineers and Site reliability engineers while there there's different fancy titles for everyone but that teams like shrunk significantly and and and you know we all work really really well together. it's not kind of this like staunchy kind of separation of people it's it's a much more collaborative team. We work much closer together Because i think the tools and technologies have evolved in such a way that everyone can kind of sort of work together much better. So i think that part's been super super exciting. And because of that we were able to get you know it's it's more satisfying you can see applications getting released. You know all the time. I mean you get huge. Companies like netflix. They're releasing features like every day. So it's really exciting to see the pace and end the change of how like software and how technology evolves and then. I also think Just be the the amount of information and of you know how to get Involved in tak It's come to a place where i'm excited that so many people like you're talking about your brother. You're literally decision whom how to code and so literally you know a cup. After lockdown he can apply at microsoft and get a job at burnside. Apply to microsoft. So i i love this. I love this. I love because of i came from. I originally from chicago came from you. Know modest modest family and a lot of people around me or modest living. And so i really loved that technology has started to become a equalizer providing a lot more people opportunities To be able to code be able to change and thereby getting great jobs and then they're thereby kind of really changing their lives so it's not. I love seeing really kind of technology for all encoding for all This whole push for that. That's what's really got me like super excited about this industry now.

Kurt Angle Revisits 'WrestleMania Goes Hollywood' and the Thrill of Entertaining
"I'm curious in a segment like this because you've had some of the best matches wrestling history. But you've also had some really comedic home runs. You have a preference. I mean. obviously there's got to be shouldn't say obviously i don't know but there's gotta be a bunch of adrenaline in the middle of a match and you can feel that crowd but when you're doing an entertaining skit like this and you know it's hitting.

That's that's a sign of somebody that has talent
Fanne Foxe, ‘Argentine Firecracker’ at center of Washington, D.C. sex scandal, dies at 84
"Age, the name Fanny Fox means something. The one time stripper gained insane notoriety after she jumped into the tidal basin on an October night in 1974. She was in a gown the car she'd been in Had been pulled over by police and the man she was with made the story even bigger. He was Congressman Wilbur Mills, a Bible Belt politician who also led the powerful House Ways and Means Committee. That night, assured Fanny Fox his place in the annals of political scandals. And we've just learned today that Fox died recently at the age of 84. Let's learn more about her role in D. C History with Washington Post obituary editor Adam Bernstein. Hey, Adam, Thanks so much for being with us. And at this point, most people in Washington probably don't know anything about Fanny Fox, who was she It's a good question. Thank you so much for having me on well. The reason she was such a big name here is because of her involvement. As you said with Wilber Mills. He was the some have said the second most powerful man in Washington on Lee. We superseded by the president sort of it in the early 19 seventies, Wilbur Mills was chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, which controls a lot of money, and he had been in Congress for many decades. By that point, so he had this reputation of Um, accumulated reputation for food for power. And he also was from Arkansas, the Bible belt, and he had also cultivated this reputation as a as a workaholic. A grind. Um, a man of utter rectitude. And so what happened was, uh, you know, nothing would have been revealed of this affair, at least publicly. Except for this bizarre episode is you mentioned at the Washington the title based Mackenzie's senior The Jefferson Memorial. And on October 7 1950 74 He who? Wilbur Mills, who had been seeing Fanny Fox at her burlesque, Cole, You're in D. C. I was with her one night two in the morning and they get into this weird accident near the at the Tidal Basin. Basically, they're in a car without lights on the police. See them, They stopped him. And Fanny Fox. Or, you know, on impulse jumps out of the car and into the title base, And she starts you know, wrestling with the policeman who goes in after her. It's discovered that her face is all batter that Mills who were these Coke bottle glasses, His glasses are smashed. And is reeking of alcohol, and the TV crew happened to be nearby as well. So it's just perfect storm of of of politics and media, and this is right at the time of Watergate as well. So everybody was looking for the next scandal. So what ultimately happened to Wilbur Mills? Then what was the code on Fanny Fox? Good question. So Wilbur Mills survives. Oddly enough, the next election he goes, He goes back to Arkansas and sort of in this folksy manner tries to play it off. You know, his famous quote at the time is One should never drink champagne with a foreigner that that's the lesson he took away from him. And and you know, weirdly enough. He survived with his wife. She seems to back in publicly. But you know, right after winning the election and seemingly surviving by by a thread appears on her, appears with Fanny Fox again on stage in Boston, Fanny Fox and parlayed all the publicity into this lucrative career on the burlesque circuit. And he goes on stage. It's It's just terrible embarrassment captured on TV of all places again, and his career is them finished. He I think he resigns. He spends it goes into recovery. Disgraced from public office, but then spend the rest of his life. He lived a to least another 15 20 years, basically helping other recovering addicts like himself. Fanny Fox have Ah Less of Ah, a much harder time of it. She Prospers for a couple years winds up down in Florida. I couldn't find out that much about the family didn't want to cooperate, but I was able to look up various records. She she got a couple of all things degrees. Including one you know, in marine science of all. Wow. And but I couldn't figure out I couldn't figure out what she did with her time. Her lawyer didn't say your family wouldn't talk. Um I don't know. She had jobs or just How she struggled by and we will just have to live that mystery. Continue, Adam, because our time is up, though, clearly we could talk about this for a very long time. Thanks So much for being with us. Thanks. That's
Fixing The Problem Of Regulating Algorithms
"So nathan. tell me what's an algorithm algorithms can be thought of as a recipe. A series of steps often programmed into a computer that determine how machine behaves but the challenge as any cook often fines. Is that when you put them out into the world especially something of sufficient complexity. They often behave in ways. That are different from what we expect. Can you just take a minute to explain how that's problematic. And why why should we care. That algorithms are deciding which piece of content you see on facebook or which which video you're being recommended on. Youtube algorithms happen at all levels from exactly how the electrons go from one point to another on the internet to the much more high level things that we think about in our direct experience for example an algorithm determines what your email inbox decides is spam an on twitter decides which faces to show when it's displaying a photo and algorithms also and critically make decisions about what information to prioritize when showing us feeds on facebook on twitter when determining which adds we see which adds we don't and those are often some of the uses of algorithms that people worry about in society and policy circles. Youtube makes a recommendation system to help us find the videos. We like and suddenly were worrying about recommendations of extremism. Microsoft makes fun chattan that will have interesting conversations with you and now we're worrying about it learning racism and hatred so we find that although we have these simple building blocks of an algorithm that an engineer can imagine they often grow to be something larger than we might admit initially imagine i've written and others have written about the problem of algorithms on facebook favorite is ing or preferring content and posts that are emotional that are negatives that are divisive. There's been an argument. That that's one of the reasons why we have so much division and polarization in our societies that we are being fed more and or excitable an angry content because the algorithm tests and guesses that. That's what we're gonna wanna see or anyway. That's what's going to keep us online or keep us using facebook. Is it accurate. Is that how they work. We do live in a world where many of the systems that determined what we see. And to give our attention to our learning from our behavior our preferences and from the collective behavior of many others some of who are paying some of them have motivated coordinated campaigns to influence those our them's and they're adapting in real time and so because we've never really faced a situation like this at such scale. People have a lot of concerns about how those algorithms are behaving and what they're doing to society one of the fundamental challenges. I think scientists are still wrestling with. Is this challenge of influence. Typically if a car crashes because there's say a faulty drivetrain we can point to the engineering and say there's a problem with this system. With these adaptive systems they're reacting and learning and responding to human society and human behavior and we're still developing the scientific tools to understand what it means to have those feedback loops and in the meantime we have to live in a world where these things very real power
Australia is demanding tech giants pay for news. Google relented, Facebook didn’t
"A dispute between lawmakers and american tech giant's took a dramatic turn this week for months. The government has been debating a new media code that would force the likes of google and facebook to pay traditional news outlets win linking to their content. The code was approved on wednesday by australia's lower house of parliament and is expected to pass in the senate next week on the same day. Google announced a three year. Deal with news court. The rupert murdoch owned conglomerate that has a big presence in australia's broadcast market google's decision to pay up in line with the proposed legislation was seen as a move to placate lawmakers but facebook took a different approach. Australians waking up yesterday to see the news wouldn't have actually seen any news if they get their news from facebook because on that day facebook decided to block all news articles australia. Tom wainwright is our media. Editor facebook tried to ban just news websites. That was the intention but it eased some kind of machine learning method which didn't seem to go very well because as well as banning news sites they banned all kinds of other things charities the fire service health services a project for children with cancer and most of those were reasonably quickly corrected npr thames. The damage was done people outraged. Why exactly where people outraged well. People are outraged about fact that so many things have been blocked the whence pace to be blocked but people are saying that in the middle of a pandemic is obviously not a great time to be blocking legitimate news sites providing true information about things. You know what the state of current lockdown laws are or where to get your vaccine that kind of thing. Scott morrison the prime minister not surprisingly is capitalizing on this. The idea of shutting down the sort of sorts digest today as some sort of threat. We'll have a strategy is reactive at. He's keen to make this as much of an international question as he can and he's pointing out to other countries are considering these codes as well and and wrestling with the same dilemmas. So i think australia is hoping that other countries will take it side in this battle and so what did facebook say about. How did they explain itself. Facebook says the australia's position basically rests on a misunderstanding about the relationship between facebook and publishers. And they say the actually. When facebook publishes a link to an article is the publisher actually benefiting from that not facebook and so they think that they should be the ones who are required to pay publishers for linking to publish it stories in fact they say the australia last year they reckon that they generated more than five billion referrals to australia new sites which they say would be worth about four hundred million australian dollars and they say actually if publishes thing that somehow getting a deal from this they should just stop publishing their stories to facebook. They're not under any obligations. Have their stuff on that. But for its part. Google made a different decision. Well that's interesting google's done exactly the opposite you know the tech firms faced with this in some ways. Impossible demand know they were told to pay up or take their business elsewhere. Facebook decided it was probably less bad to shut down its news links than it was to set the precedence of coughing up. Google the opposite choice. And it's this week a deal with news coal. Which is rupert murdoch's news organization and smaller deals with of the news organizations the terms of which have been fully disclosed. But the gist seems to be that. They'll basically pay them lots of money and in return they'll be allowed to carry on listing their news articles. And what do you make of those different approaches to this threat of of the differing actions that google and facebook of taking on this i think really reflect the kinds of business that they're in for face but they say the news actually is quite a small part of what they do is less than four percent. They say of what you see on your news feed for google. I think search engine. That wasn't allowed to show links twenty news articles wouldn't be much of search engine and you can imagine people pretty quickly abandoning google and going to something else like say being which is owned by microsoft which has been a chilly diversities these australian reforms. So i think google just decided that it was too big a hit for it to take facebook decided to gamble and i think we'll see in the next few days whether this gamble pays

"I am so excited to be joined by two of my favorite comics. I haven't been able to see them in person for a longtime but here. We are joined together through wi fi. Laurie kilmartin and aaron jackson. Hello hey we have all not done a live show. I assume you've not done a live show through this whole thing because there has been none but you never know. Do you miss stand up or are you happy for the break. I definitely miss it. I have done one show. It was back in the pickup truck. Oh yeah arrive in shows. It was i mean any other time in my career. We would have called that a hell gig. I was excited to be there. It was like me judy goal. Of course we were like but the whole time we were like that was amazing. Oh my goodness that was flashing white. Laughter couldn't see people still amazing wound literally on the back of a pickup truck. Oh yeah on the bed of a pickup truck in front of a diner in queens and do they put like a stool up there with a bottled water. There was a mike stand. I don't know if there was still did you. How was your memory of your sach. I mean i was rusty. But i was like. It's your fault for coming to the first comedy show which began laureate. Do miss doing stand up or you. Happy for the break i do that. I've been to mean a all may stand up shows in my bedroom on. Yeah and i constantly have to worry that. I didn't lock the door and family members going to barge in asking nita jar or or whatever i had to drive out which is when you walk. You walk through. I was like what. Are you doing more devastating. When somebody put their car in reverse during show. So laurie aaron. We have a game for you. Sound good read excellent so as you know. Fully artists are the people who create the sounds. We hear in film and television. So this audio quizzes called foley moly play a movie sound effect and you are going to guess how the sound was actually made. But don't worry. This is multiple choice. So you'll have some thing to choose from and you're going to be competing against each other so we're going to go back and forth Starting with aaron okay. Okay all right. This is godzilla from nine thousand nine hundred fifty four. Well that was weird. That was a weird one. Okay how was that sound created was it created a breathing through a scuba divers mask be rubbing a leather gloves coated in pine tar resin against the strings of a double bass or see withholding coffee from a mother of four. Well i mean. I'm sure it's probably two of those definitely. Sounds like coffee with your. I don't remember. Hey so i am going to say the pine tar and the base absolutely. That is correct. Any answer that contains the word resin is the right answer was no other byzantine and the sound designers for the two thousand and fourteen version. Say the roar differently. They captured sounds at frequencies that humans can't hear and pitched them down in the studio so they sound like they're fine. This is for you lori. This army chant is from the second lord of the rings movie the two towers. What are we really hearing there. Is it a twenty five thousand spectators at a cricket match be the crowd at a special promotional lord of the rings inspired pro wrestling match or c sixty five hundred angry fans at comecon. Who just learned that. Ben affleck was cast as batman and or not audio from assume comedy show. I mean the most successful one. We agree that would be the most successful i. I'm going to pick a match. Yes yes that is correct. It was a peter. Jackson ran onto the field well. A cricket match was happening. i'm pro. He probably waited for breaking the action and taught the crowd the

I tell you this comic. The beauty of being five seven. I don't remember it might have been pat mcafee. Somebody told me that the thing about going to the top rope that you don't understand until you get up there is that you look at the top rope and you go. That's not that high. It doesn't look high. And then you get up to the top rope and you realize that you got to add about six feet because from your foot. Your foot is on the rope. So your whole height is added to where that top rope is. and that's where it gets high. You're only five seven so that's a lot easier than being seven feet tall. If you're on the right yeah. That's a good point because i've only like sat up there. I feel like. I jumped off the second rope once master that second row bret hart elbow so you never had to go right to the top. Well dude. you know what i'm actually doing. Not the leg. And what i'm actually doing is if i made a list and i feel like this is advice. Everybody whether you wanna do wrestling or not. But if i made a list of all the reasons. I shouldn't do wrestling which the majority of people all we do. Every day is make a list of why we're garbage. We're just like this sucks. This is bad. This is why. I can't do this blah and i've i've done i've been there. I've done that so much. You can like reverse engineer the list. So i think it was mark. Duplex the filmmaker and actor. Who i heard talking about this on my dax shepard's podcast and he said something about how restriction can breed creativity. So you know the laws brothers. Got their break. They were kind of saying no to agents because agents were kind like dictum around in l. a. And they were in austin and they just kind of made their own films got into sundance. Did everything themselves and they said because they had like a low budget because they couldn't do all these things it made them better writers. It made them more creative with the writing. I feel like with me and with wrestling or with anybody listening to this show you can. You can change okay so for example. So i'm older and smaller cool. I'm not going to be as athletic. But i can study storytelling which all the old people who have. Podcasts seem very angry that there isn't as much storytelling. So my great. I can do that. Because i'm a writer and i'm a comedian or i'm five seven. I'm afraid of heights okay. Well of jitsu for fifteen years. So i can study like all those old like japanese matches and i can like have more like hard hitting a shoot style. I'm divorced and have depression and all of these things great. I'm just going to be happy to be there. I hit rock bottom. I'm not going to be like why aren't they in this match wired there. I'm just going to be so goddamn happy You can always turn those negatives being afraid of heights. It's like great. I need to like bat russell. I can figure out how to put all my jujitsu like dude. There's so much that actually could make me stand out. Jose can't do you know the crazy flippy highspots that everyone's doing it's like well. Everyone's doing that or you tell people you're afraid of heights right you let the world know and then you go up to the top rope. I was thinking about this and you can see if somebody's really afraid or if they're acting like i mean you could tell if somebody is really having a moment that's when it really works so the idea that you your fear of heights you could just make it a thing you know. Yeah like mid match looking. Like i'm gonna go up to the second rope not being able to do it and the crowd's like then when i got up there though if i can make the crowd pop for the most basic of like yeah like mid rope elbow jobs that would be like. That's how you tell your story. You're the rudy of double ax handles i. It's forcing me to. And this also is why i realized how much i love it..

And that's such a big part of being a fan, especially at my age or anybody, who's in age, similar to me the reason we're as big of wrestling fans, as we are today is because of how big of fans we were when we were kids.

He will have a behind the scenes role. It was called one of the most or it was called the most lucrative contract in the history of wrestling commentary. I don't know if in the wrestling business, it's the greatest idea in the world to start to develop a reputation for giving out the best contracts everywhere. Chris Jericho goes he says that you know, eighty w is paying him. So well AWS is confessing about how much they're paying people JR press.

JR is he's going to be there for. Double or nothing and look. You want to get attention? You want to get attention from the mainstream as well as the wrestling world.

Are you Lee the best wrestling play by play guy of all time? Good old JR Jim Ross, you know, that is that is the guy that's going to bring you notoriety. When a mean comes out and it requires some wrestling commentary to be put behind it for alternate. Comedic affect good old JR is the voice that is used on those memes. That's because he goes beyond wrestling because the era that he got famous in the attitude era went beyond wrestling. I mean, the attitude era of WWE was south park level big. You know, it wasn't just for wrestling fans. At that point. You know, the questions start to arise in JR addressed this a little bit. He said one of the things motivating him was all the people on social media saying he didn't have it anymore. He's a little bit past his prime that he doesn't he doesn't agree with that. He believes he has lots to add to wrestling. And look, you know, I think that I think that he's right. It's gone. Be tough to say that people are not going to be happy to hear JR's voice on this wrestling product. I think what's important is a guy like Excalibur who's also on the broadcast team known as the voice of PWG..

Big weekend for reality of more than anything. You know? I'm all of my guys all of my Krugman this'll excited, but it's it's us. It's us last stand. And I and I truly believe that last they're using this is your last. This is the last time you're going to be in your fighting a Andrews from reality of wrestling. And you're obviously, I mean reality of wrestling is your baby, I guess if you're ever if you're going to have a last match anywhere. It should be at the place that you built in created in that you're kind of trying to use to to create the next generation of talent right up. Definitely. I mean, we we like to triple a professional wrestling. We're gonna be the biggest out there. That's doing it from this perspective trying to get young guys at the next level. Rex Andrews is one of those young guys who've been with me since he was seventeen years old. Move from dothan, Alabama, just totally pick of everything and mood. Houston, Texas, learning art of professional wrestling in he's a grown, man. Now, you know, he's made an OT giving me an ultimatum. He's I wrestle.

But you always just wanted to be the best reality wrestling in definitely give him props for that. That's going to be crazy pressure. Like, I'd be so worried that I would develop a reputation for myself the way you have and you'd have people moving from other parts of the country. Just today he get trained by you because I'd be I'd be worried that somebody shows up and they're like Booker.

I did upload to the YouTube channel for free a small section of last week state of wrestling segment, the debate between myself and Katie linen doll over Charlotte and Becky Lynch, and we'll get into Becky Lynch here on state of wrestling this week for sure because just something I observed about what was going on with Becky Lynn this week on smackdown. On. But we'll talk about it. We'll get there. She's not my number five story of the week. And you know, what we do on state of wrestling?

But this is a WWE company story for sure in anything that affects WWE is a company affects the wrestling industry, as we know it in two thousand eighteen so the XFL leads off this week state of wrestling. And honestly, you know, I think that there is room for the XFL here on not saying wrestling as a matter of fact, come February twenty twenty we're not even going to cover wrestling anymore.

"But it's also healthy that the New York Times and the Washington Post real journalism with real journalists with this mission and integrity of of getting things right and having newsrooms at really it's not just opinion with p. Whatever you can buy into the the fake news stuff. But I don't as far as like real real newsrooms. It's healthy that they're competing with each other. But it's, but they also are surviving and thriving because people most people know it, no it when they see it when there's an integrity in real journalism and not something that just at an agenda. That's mass an agenda mask by pretending to be news or something like that. So I just think people end up figuring it out. They figure out where people know what they're talking about. And they seem like they're, trustworthy, and that's where they spend their time. So it has a way of kind of working itself out do you ever? Or did you ever get to a place where the amount of work that you're doing and the amount of respect that you have for journalism because it kind of sounds like your passion is journalism before your passion is wrestling. Do you did you or do you ever get to this place where you are trying to prove to other people in your field that what you're doing has merit and isn't just some goofy wrestling newsletter thing that's a hobby. Oh, like in the journalism, exactly. Like outside of wrestling. Right. At a time. I did. I mean, there was definitely a time. When I felt like that was a battle worth fighting that that there there was such a thing as that. The wrestling industry itself was worthy of journalistic coverage that fell in between the sports page and the variety page, and so because newspapers didn't know how to cover it. And I understand it when you know, the Lucien of it. I mean, it was a con and journalists felt like if I try to get information. I'm going to be lied to. This is a sports circus. That is doesn't have any reason for us to cover it like a sport. But because of the con- aspect of it, which was wrestlers. Tending the fights were real and saying if you don't believe it will be. Yup. Come in the wrangled show, you real it is journalists just sort of said, okay? We don't care. So there weren't a lot of reasons to cover this t- weekend TV show that led to once a month live events, they didn't their journalism wasn't being done. But there was so much journalism to be done, especially as it went national got a national TV became a big money business, but even in the territory days there were stories to be told that weren't being told. And so yes, I mean, I fought that battle in the late eighties early nineties in real even in the two thousand during the the drug does the I don't say drug scandals but the epidemic of wrestlers who in the late nineties were dying in the two thousands and sometimes the late nineties. Because of issues going on in the wrestling industry that that felt like that was a flashing red light for real journalism in some mainstream publications picked up on it and did stories just like they did in the early nineties when McMahon went on trial for Sarah distribution. And I mean, I was there from speaking of wrestling journalism, or you know, Ken wrestling beat journalism. I was there in that courtroom from jury selection through closing arguments, and in covered that trial and the local New York reporters were coming to me after during every break in the trial or at the end of the day going. What does that mean was that credible?.

"And and hosting a weekly wrestling radio show on a fifty thousand watt all-sports station, the second of its kind in the country. I believe I think WFAN was first but K fan came second. And I was around journalism and journalists my journalism professor, my freshman year of college was an award-winning Vietnam. Reporter who who did tremendous work. I had a very idealistic pure version of what it meant to be a journalist and was surrounded by and immersed myself in it, and I knew from a very early age that I was more interested in being a journalist about something then involved in wrestling at any cost. I would be a journalist before I would be involved in wrestling as much as I was a huge wrestling fan as a kid and as much as it's been this huge part of my life. I think my course in life was going to be journalism, and it happened that I tied it to a hobby, and then found a niche and then succeeded so I didn't look to be involved in wrestling because I wanted to be friends with wrestlers or promoters. That's that's actually almost been a badge of honor from a very young idealistic mindset that I wouldn't look to wrestling as my social circle my social circle in France where people who didn't like wrestling, or if they did they were fans and not involved in the business. So I think to to the main answer your question is it actually was more disappointing to people in wrestling. And I felt bad about it at times where people thought I was their friend. I and journalists second icy and they felt betrayed Eddie. Gilbert felt betrayed by me at times. Mick Foley, expressly felt betrayed by me at times, Jim cornet. Sent me death threats and said horrible racist things about my mother on phone messages because he felt betrayed by me a Paul Heyman handled things with more class than than than that. But he he has felt betrayed. But Paul actually got gotta go credit because I mean, Paul always whether it was lip service because he knew what what buttons to push with me or not always said Wade, you you I consider you my friend, but you are journalists I and you should never let our friendship getting away. If you're doing what you think journalistically, you should do very few people approach me that joepat Esino the global wrestling federation SPN he felt, but but I never when I say they felt betrayed maybe disappointed or hurt or something's a better way to put it because I never made promises and broke my word. But I think they thought because they provided me information and access that I would not say when I thought wrestling show was bad that it was bad. Right.

But if you want to know a little bit of the history of that if you want to know. His perspective on survivor series. And and and everything going in listen to this interview. I think you're gonna love it the Turkey can wait. Wade Keller is right now on that same wrestling, then not Sam wrestling interview. And as previously stated this week here on not Sam wrestling, one of my favorite people to talk wrestling with Wade Keller is back for the first time in a while. What's going on, man? Not too much just kind of you know, in the midst of shifting to holiday weekend, and all the ERC I'm going to do on my holiday weekend, and how it's going to be a little different than normal wise. I never stopped working. But yeah, it's it's a different mindset this week after a crazy crazy week or two in in pro wrestling, it really is. And since it's thanksgiving week, and we're celebrating thanksgiving for all the North American fans here on the show this week. I thought this would be a good time to celebrate the fact that we're thankful for wrestling. That's what we're talking about. Right. Yes. Yeah. So survivor series went down on Sunday. First of all, what did you think about survivor series, not necessarily just as a pay per view in two thousand eighteen but almost from a historical context. Like, you know, I feel like survivor series is only starting to kind of get back to a place where it's considered one of the big five, I guess with money in the Bank included as well. 'cause for a while it kind of started to get pushed to the back end. But for a long time survivor series was one of the big pay per views of the year. How do you think this year added to that legacy or detracted from that legacy? Where do you think survivor series stands right now? And how do you think he compared to years past? Yeah, it's interesting because it was originally created to go to kind of snuff out Jim Crockett juniors attempt to to lunch stark cave. Nationally as a thanksgiving paper view. And so I it started as sort of like, well, we don't wanna give anything too big away. That's going to hurt how show attendance which is so weird because that's not their mentality now. Yeah. So we're just gonna throw a bunch of wrestlers and tag teams and package this event with wrestlemainia. So that cable companies who have limited paper declared his choose us instead of Jim Crockett. And it was you know, one of the big reasons kraken ended up selling Turner because it just it was devastating to not get in the paper you game the way that they wanted to. So when you look at the roots of survivor series at the take team idea wasn't created because they thought it would be this great idea that's going to draw a lot of paper Dubai's. It was what how can we create a paper that won't disrupt other storylines and get in the way of how show attendance, and what we have planned for other big events coming up and now, and then it went through a phase where because of that tradition. It was seen as a one of the big four. And then it went through a stretch where it was seen. As not all that important, the the elimination tag matches lost some of their their the novelty in luster and people knew okay? It's it's summer slammed rumble wrestlemainia, even king of the ring for awhile was kind of the summer event before money into main kind of made. It's it's Mark. I think they've done a good job..

"I also think that doing it at that moment was what had to be done because that was the best way that you can guarantee that dean Ambrose is going to get booed. The dean Ambrose is actually going to be a he'll we all love dean Ambrose, if he just turns he'll in a in a traditional way, you know. I don't think that it's going to hold up. You know, because I don't think people wanna boo dean Ambrose. So I think that doing it this way forces us to boom, you know? I really do. I just and. It's wrestling, man. It's wrestling, and that's what we're watching. So I thought it was brilliant. And I look forward to seeing what's next coming off of raw. It seemed like we were looking at a future of Seth Rollins versus dean Ambrose and Braun strowman versus drew McIntyre. Now, some people are talking about doing dean Ambrose Seth Rollins wrestlemainia match. But I feel like that match has to happen way before wrestlemainia. We're six months away from wrestlemainia and the turn has already happened. So I don't know how you wait to wrestlemainia. I almost feel like dean Ambrose versus Seth Rollins has to be the rivalry that leads us to wrestlemainia, and then maybe wrestlemainia is Braun strowman versus Seth Rollins would that universal title on the line. Maybe I don't know it remains to be seen. I think it leaves us in a very interesting spot. But I, you know, I think we all. While we can enjoy the interesting spot that we're in speculate about it. I think we have to also make sure that we take the time to send positive wishes to Roman reigns and primarily to his family because that's real life, man, that's real life and not something we can take for granted.

You know, it's coming to an agreement and come into a real business agreement. You know, I think a lot of people, whether it be music, whether it be professional wrestling acting, a lot of times they go out there and they absolutely just, you know, bastardize themselves as a product and they, you know the the give themselves for free and then the, you know, they don't expect compensation, then they wonder why people don't respect them. Well, that's because you don't respect yourself enough to go out there and and be treated with respect. So you know, I'm a, I'm a big proponent of guys, especially now with the the big boom in independent wrestling. You know, I want these guys to go out there. No, they're worth and you know, definitely demanded these companies better because you know these companies are making money. I always get this all the time. I, I did a rat the other day.

I'm like, bitch, I had a eighteen years grinding out in here and working for everyone and everything in the world. Yeah, I know. I actually it might expert. Yes, I am an expert. I'm an expert on independent wrestling. I'm an expert on on, you know, wrestling for for one of the bigger companies, men and I just I really want to get that message across man. There's independent guys out there, you know, hey, an independent companies run it like a company man running with a company of the future and know what your future holds and and put away that money on the side to lock down some of those guys to build your product. And and if you're not doing that, then you're not really running a company. You're just kind of playing wrestler, you know, you're not in the business. You're just in the game, right? Right. But you're also having a good time. Oh, is it thing? And I can't task time. I could tell that because first time I met you first time I interviewed you. You were not at WWE. No, you're miserable. Man. I was like, I don't know if we'll. Yeah, because I had to go down to the Scott off interview. I didn't know. Yeah, I was like, I don't think so. Does that cool guy? I'm going to stay out of his way. It's not. And then the second time I interviewed you was right after you'd gotten into WWE next to you and all that. And I was like this due to the man, what would changed the money? I think I think money wasn't right then. And then when you met me the second time, it was right. I was loaded and I was just like.

"wrestling" Discussed on Sam Roberts Wrestling Podcast
"Situation at least similar to the one that I'm in and that's not to brag that's to say like, I kind of get it. I don't. I try not to take it for granted, and I don't think that I do. And what I do want to do is be able to share that stuff with you and be able to be creative with that stuff. And you know if you if one hour and a half to two hour podcast a week isn't enough is to give you more content. Now from the beginning of this podcast, I made it a point to kind of be independent. You know, there have been offers to join various networks over the years that we've been doing the show the show's been pretty successful. So of course, people have certainly talked, and I've talked to a lug many different people. About networks in and sales forces and all this stuff. And to me, I felt like not Sam wrestling was the one place where I could speak directly to you. I could produce directly for you. It was the one spot where there was no boss. There was no sort of this show. Acts is a directive for this bigger company. Know this show is the whole thing, and this show is really show that I can give you guys access that maybe you normally wouldn't get. That's why we try to tackle it from a fan perspective. That's why we don't always. We don't get cynical very often on this show because there's nothing to be cynical about. It's about celebrating not only pro wrestling and sports entertainment, but celebrating the access that we have to it. And the ability that we now have to create content not only through access, but through. Digital distribution and technology. You know, I've got this amazing not Sam studio inside my house. I've got anybody can use the internet. Anybody can send and receive content. So why not take advantage of all that. And that's why I've always thought it was so important that not Sam wrestling, stay independent, not so much because we're against the system, man, nobody gonna shut us up. We're not following the popular point of view, but more just so that we can do the things that we wanna do. There's no alterior motive to anything to me. The relationship from me to you guys is what this show is all about, and that's why it's and that's all it's ever really been about. It's about talking to these superstars and when I talk or or people in and around the wrestling world, and when I talked to him, I do it from a perspective of of you guys. Have what? What as a fan, what am I curious about? And let's throw it to you unedited on anything and just end just give it to you guys that way when I do state of wrestling, it's, you know, we like to talk about shows after shows, you know the first thing that happens after summer as you start talking to your friends about summer slam the first thing. When you think about what happened this week in wrestling, you just kind of go for it. And that's what I try to make state of wrestling all about is just a conversation that I'm having with you guys about what's going on in wrestling right now and what my opinions are. So in an effort to maintain that relationship with you guys and in an effort to not only. Stay independent, but to be able to start unfolding the not Sam and the not Sam wrestling vision that I have in my head. I started looking around for spots to really expand content to really start expanding content and turn not Sam wrestling into more of a platform where I can I can create, I can bring on collaborators and we can create kind of a whole world dedicated to being fans of wrestling. And I talked to a lot of people. I talked to a lot of people outside wrestling inside wrestling, you know, had long conversations with Bruce Prichard. For example, he and I, from the beginning of him podcasting, he would talk to me about podcasting. I would talk to him about expanding this thing of podcasting and programming in general in everything. And then I talked to some of the good people over at patriotic because patriots something I've been aware of for a long time, but I didn't quite know if the podcast itself fit into the patriot model, and as I started exploring it, and as I started talking to some of the people at patriotic I.
