H. I. #65: Operation Zeus

00:00:01   telling people who don't care about this [TS]

00:00:03   podcast i used to do in the one time I [TS]

00:00:04   got a quiz question right [TS]

00:00:07   great i want to start with a listener my [TS]

00:00:11   00 bold move [TS]

00:00:15   bold move you're gonna open up with that [TS]

00:00:16   huh okay all right go for it and we've [TS]

00:00:19   already agreed this was not allowed to [TS]

00:00:21   be kept from the show haven't yeah sort [TS]

00:00:23   of sort of sort of sediment in formal [TS]

00:00:25   and informal agreement that it will be [TS]

00:00:28   cut from the show because you spent a [TS]

00:00:29   good 30 minutes searching for it but go [TS]

00:00:31   ahead go ahead [TS]

00:00:32   are you ready dear brady and cgpgrey i [TS]

00:00:35   am a sheriff's deputy in the US and I [TS]

00:00:36   spend a lot of time in the squad car to [TS]

00:00:39   keep saying i listen to the podcast on [TS]

00:00:41   my fine now he says he has two stories [TS]

00:00:44   about unique circumstances where he's [TS]

00:00:45   listened to the podcast [TS]

00:00:47   the first one is good but i'm going to [TS]

00:00:49   go straight to the second one because [TS]

00:00:50   the second one is great [TS]

00:00:52   last night I had arrested a person and [TS]

00:00:54   was taking him to jail normally ask them [TS]

00:00:56   what radio station they want to listen [TS]

00:00:58   to because I'm a nice guy [TS]

00:01:00   this individual was particularly road [TS]

00:01:02   and belligerent so i put on what I [TS]

00:01:03   wanted to listen to [TS]

00:01:05   I can officially confirm that a person [TS]

00:01:06   was put into handcuffs and forced to [TS]

00:01:08   listen to Brady's complained about the [TS]

00:01:10   Apple watch for a good half hour against [TS]

00:01:12   their wheel so there you go [TS]

00:01:19   handcuffed in the back of the squad car [TS]

00:01:21   forced to listen to me rant about Apple [TS]

00:01:23   watches for half an hour [TS]

00:01:25   I think that person should get a [TS]

00:01:26   discount on their jail with him for at [TS]

00:01:28   time served [TS]

00:01:29   oh my god oh my god the the fact that it [TS]

00:01:33   is you complaining about the Apple watch [TS]

00:01:35   makes that perfect right like trying to [TS]

00:01:37   think of a random segments that that a [TS]

00:01:39   random person could probably care system [TS]

00:01:41   for every pretty complains of epic Apple [TS]

00:01:44   watch [TS]

00:01:45   that's amazing absolutely everything i [TS]

00:01:49   could just imagine going all right I'm [TS]

00:01:51   sorry officer [TS]

00:01:52   I'll never do it again I confess what do [TS]

00:01:55   you want to know what are you pointing [TS]

00:01:56   that I'm going to turn everybody in [TS]

00:01:57   their gastric that that is a fantastic [TS]

00:02:02   listener email and we can say that is a [TS]

00:02:06   segment with keeping isn't it I promise [TS]

00:02:08   you won't be coming but like I said I I [TS]

00:02:10   i keep them if they're interesting and [TS]

00:02:12   that was that was that was a really [TS]

00:02:13   good 1i like that so we have not spoken [TS]

00:02:15   for many many moons now and you're one [TS]

00:02:19   over the world having adventures what [TS]

00:02:22   one moon [TS]

00:02:22   yeah exactly one month not many moons [TS]

00:02:24   one moon it doesn't have quite the same [TS]

00:02:26   impact if I say we have not spoken for [TS]

00:02:28   one moon [TS]

00:02:28   yeah I know but these slanders I [TS]

00:02:30   understand that I understand that it [TS]

00:02:32   doesn't have the same impact within it [TS]

00:02:33   is also wildly wrong [TS]

00:02:35   someday someday Brady we may actually [TS]

00:02:38   take a break from the podcast for many [TS]

00:02:39   many moons but that day was not this day [TS]

00:02:42   we haven't spoken in exactly one moon so [TS]

00:02:44   so no hyperbole here you don't need to [TS]

00:02:45   make it sound like it's been a long time [TS]

00:02:46   but we have not spoken for many earth [TS]

00:02:49   rotations that doesn't have the same [TS]

00:02:51   poetry to it though as many moons now [TS]

00:02:53   what now you're mad during my case I [TS]

00:02:55   gotta give you a hard time radio i got [TS]

00:02:57   to give you Heart era say I didn't even [TS]

00:02:59   know what it's I mean we haven't got a [TS]

00:03:02   whole lot to talk about from the last [TS]

00:03:03   episode because the last episode was the [TS]

00:03:05   quiz and this you want to tell people [TS]

00:03:06   again how great you were forgetting that [TS]

00:03:08   jeff john question right I do think [TS]

00:03:10   about it from time to time and it makes [TS]

00:03:12   me smile i will i will remember that [TS]

00:03:14   moment for the whole rest of my life [TS]

00:03:16   that was that will be the best pub quiz [TS]

00:03:19   moment I ever have was kidding that [TS]

00:03:21   cricketer question right well it was a [TS]

00:03:23   great move by it now for new elements [TS]

00:03:26   have been named on the periodic table [TS]

00:03:27   gray also we spoke about this awhile ago [TS]

00:03:30   and we were throwing out some names and [TS]

00:03:35   so yes yes [TS]

00:03:36   do you remember what we threw out I [TS]

00:03:38   actually can I can't remember exactly [TS]

00:03:40   although one of them i got one of them [TS]

00:03:42   was right because you know I i I'm not [TS]

00:03:44   be in the know when it comes to the [TS]

00:03:45   periodic table in case you don't know [TS]

00:03:47   ya know you've got you've got insider [TS]

00:03:49   information there i only remember we [TS]

00:03:51   discussed the possibility of of fine [TS]

00:03:54   medium and I think we just remember we [TS]

00:03:57   discussed that because people complained [TS]

00:03:59   that we had brought it up once before [TS]

00:04:00   two years ago on the podcast people like [TS]

00:04:02   now you've been to think twice it's a [TS]

00:04:04   duplicate content no good thumbs down [TS]

00:04:06   remember people complaining that we had [TS]

00:04:09   mentioned finding him twice and that is [TS]

00:04:11   all that I can I can remember I tell you [TS]

00:04:13   I if that person doesn't like hearing [TS]

00:04:15   the same story for me twice they [TS]

00:04:16   definitely would not like being married [TS]

00:04:17   to me [TS]

00:04:18   but i can tell you we did talk about the [TS]

00:04:21   possibility that one would be named [TS]

00:04:22   after Japan [TS]

00:04:24   oh that's right yes yes we did the [TS]

00:04:26   podium or something was that was that [TS]

00:04:27   was well they ended up going for nihon [TS]

00:04:30   IAM meconium this is a hundred and [TS]

00:04:32   thirteen we also discussed Moscow and [TS]

00:04:35   that has happened we have Moscow viam [TS]

00:04:37   that's good i like the sound of that [TS]

00:04:39   415 and then we've been here we get a [TS]

00:04:42   bit more freestar 417 we have 10 asain [TS]

00:04:47   Tennessee because this is a halogen [TS]

00:04:49   obviously obviously goes down that [TS]

00:04:51   column with chlorine and all these other [TS]

00:04:54   halogens and therefore has to end with a [TS]

00:04:56   newly and Tennessee is marking the [TS]

00:04:58   Oakridge facility [TS]

00:05:00   hmm where a lot where a lot of work is [TS]

00:05:01   done i think i think i can get used to [TS]

00:05:04   that one tennis scene then we have an [TS]

00:05:06   even more exotic one we have organ ehsan [TS]

00:05:09   but ok with 400 on a time with ugliness [TS]

00:05:14   on for well its got the o/n ending [TS]

00:05:16   because this is on the insensitive [TS]

00:05:18   column with the noble gases and it's [TS]

00:05:22   named after a person who's involved with [TS]

00:05:25   although the Russian science [TS]

00:05:27   what's-his-name professor Yuri [TS]

00:05:30   organization who are who i will also [TS]

00:05:33   point out is still alive and it's very [TS]

00:05:34   unusual for an element to be named after [TS]

00:05:36   someone still alive [TS]

00:05:37   it's only happened once before [TS]

00:05:39   officially so this is us this is a [TS]

00:05:41   second time [TS]

00:05:42   who was the ones before meanwhile I've [TS]

00:05:45   glen seaborg that you take away all my [TS]

00:05:47   good photo for future quizzes here but [TS]

00:05:49   anyway here we go now i will quickly [TS]

00:05:53   point out these names are not a hundred [TS]

00:05:55   percent official we have a consultation [TS]

00:05:56   period now movie but and in a previous [TS]

00:05:59   consultation period a symbol has been [TS]

00:06:01   changed but never a name so i think [TS]

00:06:03   we're pretty good for the names barring [TS]

00:06:05   some kind of catastrophe [TS]

00:06:07   mm well that's very interesting very [TS]

00:06:10   interesting i like i like the new names [TS]

00:06:11   overall i think that i think they sound [TS]

00:06:13   good and yeah let's get some more names [TS]

00:06:15   on that periodic table can you remember [TS]

00:06:17   them can you repeat them to me haha [TS]

00:06:19   quick immediately got because I just I I [TS]

00:06:23   messed up the first one the first time [TS]

00:06:24   so it's in my brain wrong it's the [TS]

00:06:26   podium now it's not Honea meconium ok so [TS]

00:06:31   the money [TS]

00:06:31   misko viam tennis seen yes and ask Lou [TS]

00:06:37   ronit ron paschal or electron that's [TS]

00:06:41   what the last 10 but no but that would [TS]

00:06:43   have been awesome and it's also an [TS]

00:06:44   excellent article for the episode but [TS]

00:06:46   the fit the question i have is i mean [TS]

00:06:49   one of your claims to fame gray is your [TS]

00:06:51   memorization of the periodic table are [TS]

00:06:54   you gonna update this party trick [TS]

00:06:56   are you gonna learn these new element [TS]

00:06:57   names or are you just going to be frozen [TS]

00:06:59   in time as kind of the high school [TS]

00:07:02   University guy who remember the periodic [TS]

00:07:04   table back then but hasn't updated his [TS]

00:07:06   knowledge i'm gonna be frozen in time [TS]

00:07:08   because i never updated it for I think [TS]

00:07:10   it was wherever the heck it was at the [TS]

00:07:13   time I never updated it there was one I [TS]

00:07:14   knew that I was supposed to and I never [TS]

00:07:16   added it's out now I'm not I'm there's [TS]

00:07:18   not a party trick that I renew and it's [TS]

00:07:20   a party trick that I get wrong [TS]

00:07:21   the older and older I get and the [TS]

00:07:23   further and further I get from the [TS]

00:07:24   person who used to have that memorized [TS]

00:07:26   so now i will not be updating a my [TS]

00:07:28   repertoire [TS]

00:07:28   ok can you give me the correct name of [TS]

00:07:30   the last 1i I was gonna be in my head is [TS]

00:07:32   Oscar it drawn forever unless you tell [TS]

00:07:34   me I'll get next song honest on which [TS]

00:07:37   i'm not a big fan of ours and then we're [TS]

00:07:39   going to respect where Russian business [TS]

00:07:41   sounds a bit like a made-up planet named [TS]

00:07:44   okay yeah yeah I know the organisms are [TS]

00:07:47   coming [TS]

00:07:47   that sounds a bit like made a plan that [TS]

00:07:49   name to me I mean I'm not in love the [TS]

00:07:50   Tennessee neither if I'm honest but I [TS]

00:07:52   out i might learn to live with that but [TS]

00:07:54   anyway but who am I to say until I've [TS]

00:07:57   until i synthesized as an element on my [TS]

00:08:00   own I guess I'm just gonna have to live [TS]

00:08:01   with what other people decided names get [TS]

00:08:03   to it i look forward to [TS]

00:08:05   radium Audrey mhmm lutetium if they're [TS]

00:08:08   going to name an element after me would [TS]

00:08:09   it be Brady amor her rhenium I like [TS]

00:08:11   Brady mhmm i like radium yeah was it [TS]

00:08:14   with you that time we're in the car that [TS]

00:08:15   time I had some discussion about if you [TS]

00:08:17   could have anything named after you what [TS]

00:08:18   what would it be [TS]

00:08:19   I don't like besides a penguin of course [TS]

00:08:21   right what would be the most awesome [TS]

00:08:24   thing to have named after you [TS]

00:08:25   you know if you were quite egotistical [TS]

00:08:27   or just or even if you weren't just if [TS]

00:08:29   something was going to be named after [TS]

00:08:30   you what would be a cool thing to have [TS]

00:08:32   would you like that's an interesting [TS]

00:08:34   question posing for the moment that [TS]

00:08:36   you're a total narcissist because yep [TS]

00:08:39   the thing that pops into my head [TS]

00:08:40   immediately is our way that the most [TS]

00:08:41   amazing thing would be to have an entire [TS]

00:08:43   your Galaxy named after you but if [TS]

00:08:46   you're a narcissist while in theory [TS]

00:08:49   that's great people just don't come [TS]

00:08:50   across that very often people don't [TS]

00:08:52   don't mention galaxies and discussion [TS]

00:08:54   very often [TS]

00:08:55   now what you would actually want to [TS]

00:08:56   something that people are going to come [TS]

00:08:57   across a lot like yeah you get one of [TS]

00:09:00   the continents renamed after you [TS]

00:09:02   what about the moon and paper like at [TS]

00:09:04   night people sitting on a bench looking [TS]

00:09:05   for the sky guy look at the Brady isn't [TS]

00:09:08   it gorgeous tonight level when it's a [TS]

00:09:10   full Brady if you can't get a named [TS]

00:09:13   after you at least carve your name with [TS]

00:09:14   the evil lazer on on the surface of the [TS]

00:09:16   Moon that's what you could do just write [TS]

00:09:18   your name on there that'd be perfect [TS]

00:09:19   the highest mountain in the world would [TS]

00:09:21   be quite good too of course here we go [TS]

00:09:23   you can rename Everest after Brady wow I [TS]

00:09:26   mean at least I've seen a George Everest [TS]

00:09:29   never even saw the mountain right of [TS]

00:09:30   course everybody knows that that's a [TS]

00:09:32   famous piece of information that [TS]

00:09:33   everybody knows no he never even saw the [TS]

00:09:35   mountain he didn't and it was pronounced [TS]

00:09:38   evaced even wrists really yeah well one [TS]

00:09:40   of the reasons he didn't want to be [TS]

00:09:42   named after him as he thought people [TS]

00:09:43   would struggle with the pronunciation [TS]

00:09:45   and so it has come to pass and so it is [TS]

00:09:48   and so it is anyway I don't even know [TS]

00:09:52   why which why we took our kids elements [TS]

00:09:54   i didn't even know why i was talking [TS]

00:09:55   about having the net the moon named [TS]

00:09:56   after me but I remember I imagine you [TS]

00:09:59   would just want some model of iphone or [TS]

00:10:01   something like you know if you seen the [TS]

00:10:03   new iphone gray what about a program a [TS]

00:10:05   programming language grey would be great [TS]

00:10:07   name for a programming language [TS]

00:10:08   yeah but I'm not the total narcissist so [TS]

00:10:10   I'm happy to just have it be my name [TS]

00:10:13   yeah we're just pretending we're not i [TS]

00:10:15   don't actually want the moon named after [TS]

00:10:17   me is I'm not really sure are you sure [TS]

00:10:19   that you don't really want the moon [TS]

00:10:21   named after you because I think you [TS]

00:10:22   might take it [TS]

00:10:23   I think you might take it was offered to [TS]

00:10:25   you on a plate in fact the longer this [TS]

00:10:27   conversation goes on the more i feel [TS]

00:10:29   like i'm fairly certain we've actually [TS]

00:10:31   revisited this exact point somewhere in [TS]

00:10:34   the past on the podcast about naming the [TS]

00:10:36   moon after you [TS]

00:10:37   it's all right that's outrageous that's [TS]

00:10:40   outrageous and are and how dare you [TS]

00:10:43   suggest people go to changed or more [TS]

00:10:46   exactly yeah I i I'm quite happy with [TS]

00:10:50   the Marines current knife [TS]

00:10:51   ok good luck with everything that i love [TS]

00:10:54   i love you are implicit approval or [TS]

00:10:58   disapproval of everything in the whole [TS]

00:10:59   universe when this comes along it's like [TS]

00:11:01   I don't know the moon [TS]

00:11:02   yeah I give that a thumbs up these [TS]

00:11:04   element name maybe I don't write so [TS]

00:11:06   everybody is petitioning you cried about [TS]

00:11:08   what do you think about this we call [TS]

00:11:10   this object to chair how do you feel [TS]

00:11:12   about that sir brady and you go [TS]

00:11:14   mmmm yes chair is a good name for this [TS]

00:11:16   object yes good waving them by next next [TS]

00:11:20   oh this thing what is this this is a [TS]

00:11:22   mouse and yes that is a good name for [TS]

00:11:24   this creature was good right next next [TS]

00:11:26   and that's what you like to do all day [TS]

00:11:27   but then very occasionally someone will [TS]

00:11:29   bring something before me like copyright [TS]

00:11:31   infringement and i'll be know exactly i [TS]

00:11:33   I'm exercising my veto on that one and [TS]

00:11:37   we have renaming it LOL i love this it's [TS]

00:11:40   like everything is coming together in [TS]

00:11:41   this moment i guess like I'm getting a [TS]

00:11:43   little window into your conception of [TS]

00:11:45   yourself [TS]

00:11:46   his opponent look at this is why break [TS]

00:11:47   like the name things but be careful [TS]

00:11:50   because because you and I laughs and [TS]

00:11:51   that we go along with this check but [TS]

00:11:53   there is a small number of people who [TS]

00:11:54   listen to the podcast who then think [TS]

00:11:56   like I seriously I'm serious [TS]

00:11:58   and yeah like you do like you do there's [TS]

00:12:00   a small number of people who listen to [TS]

00:12:01   the podcast you listen to the podcast [TS]

00:12:03   and you're going to be listening to me [TS]

00:12:05   saying this right now later and thinking [TS]

00:12:06   you know he has a point as an excellent [TS]

00:12:08   point [TS]

00:12:09   okay speaking of pretentious and pompous [TS]

00:12:12   names huh [TS]

00:12:13   let's talk about this check list of [TS]

00:12:15   yours that you posted to Twitter quite a [TS]

00:12:17   while back where you gave people an [TS]

00:12:19   insight into what you call all your [TS]

00:12:20   projects and they have a night and they [TS]

00:12:23   have all these names like the blazing [TS]

00:12:25   phoenix and Apollo and the andromeda [TS]

00:12:28   strain not i have never seen a more [TS]

00:12:30   self-important ridiculous list of names [TS]

00:12:34   for mundane work than the names before [TS]

00:12:37   your projects naming project is fun [TS]

00:12:42   living project is totally fun [TS]

00:12:44   tell me some of the projects on your [TS]

00:12:45   list at the moment and be honest ok ya [TS]

00:12:47   up mia let me pull up flip list i'll [TS]

00:12:50   tell you what like my current ones are [TS]

00:12:51   because of our listeners who don't who [TS]

00:12:53   are not aware of what Brady is talking [TS]

00:12:55   about [TS]

00:12:56   i posted a while back a screenshot of my [TS]

00:12:59   to-do list when I was trying to grind [TS]

00:13:01   through a few things before this very [TS]

00:13:04   long months of travel that oman and so I [TS]

00:13:07   posted it did seem it seems to get under [TS]

00:13:10   Brady skin because i like to use code [TS]

00:13:12   names for the various projects that i [TS]

00:13:14   work on in my system and at the time on [TS]

00:13:17   that list I think I had something that's [TS]

00:13:19   right i had like project Gemini was on [TS]

00:13:21   that list and project Gemini was the [TS]

00:13:23   video that I I last put out which was [TS]

00:13:25   the the you are two twin brain [TS]

00:13:28   phenomenon video and so I think like a [TS]

00:13:30   project Gemini that's an excellent code [TS]

00:13:32   name for that video okay alright looking [TS]

00:13:34   at my list right now usually I have at [TS]

00:13:36   least three of these things I just this [TS]

00:13:38   morning cancelled one called Project [TS]

00:13:41   narcissus which was something i was [TS]

00:13:43   going to do but i decided it was no good [TS]

00:13:45   but i still have two active projects one [TS]

00:13:48   is called Project pinion and the other [TS]

00:13:49   one is called Project skyward [TS]

00:13:51   so those are those are the two that are [TS]

00:13:52   still actively in development first [TS]

00:13:54   things first [TS]

00:13:55   why do you have to give these things [TS]

00:13:56   code names ok first code names are fun [TS]

00:14:00   our code name is not fun breeding yeah [TS]

00:14:01   they're fun yeah you can see the totally [TS]

00:14:03   fun and secondly i do actually have a [TS]

00:14:07   reason that i use code names for a bunch [TS]

00:14:10   of the projects that i work on because [TS]

00:14:11   you're weird and paranoid [TS]

00:14:13   no we're okay and were paranoid [TS]

00:14:16   I don't even understand how paranoid [TS]

00:14:18   fits into this howdy how are you [TS]

00:14:19   envisioning me being paranoid given my [TS]

00:14:21   project code names [TS]

00:14:22   well I think you're white paper going to [TS]

00:14:23   find out what you're working on and you [TS]

00:14:25   give them code names so that people [TS]

00:14:27   can't find out what you're working on [TS]

00:14:29   because someone's gonna jump out from [TS]

00:14:31   behind a pillar and smack you over the [TS]

00:14:33   head and hack your phone and take all [TS]

00:14:35   your ideas [TS]

00:14:36   okay well first of all I don't think [TS]

00:14:37   that's an unreasonable concern that had [TS]

00:14:39   someone is taking ideas to dry [TS]

00:14:42   I think that's that falls under the [TS]

00:14:44   category of not paranoid when you are [TS]

00:14:46   YouTube creator so yeah I have to keep [TS]

00:14:48   project secret obviously obviously they [TS]

00:14:50   need to be kept secret because the hand [TS]

00:14:52   because the hamburger was waitin around [TS]

00:14:53   the corner and he's like knots trying to [TS]

00:14:55   steal your videos and you never know you [TS]

00:14:58   never know opening get no not paranoid [TS]

00:15:02   totally reasonable and then the second [TS]

00:15:05   thing is i have a a practical reason for [TS]

00:15:08   using code names which is [TS]

00:15:10   i'm working on a video there's two ways [TS]

00:15:11   i'm tracking what's occurring I have a [TS]

00:15:16   huge template in OmniFocus you know it's [TS]

00:15:19   like 80 items long at this point which [TS]

00:15:21   is all of the steps to move a video from [TS]

00:15:24   beginning to end and then i also have a [TS]

00:15:27   series of dropbox folders and files that [TS]

00:15:31   are related to that project and some of [TS]

00:15:33   those files and folders need to be [TS]

00:15:35   shared with other people and so what I [TS]

00:15:37   used to run into was this problem of I [TS]

00:15:40   used to just call my projects the title [TS]

00:15:43   that I was thinking the video was going [TS]

00:15:45   to be so I would have called something [TS]

00:15:47   like the last 10 project you are to [TS]

00:15:49   raipur project humans need not apply a [TS]

00:15:52   project whatever right but the problem [TS]

00:15:53   there is that since I spent a long time [TS]

00:15:55   on these things over a period of a long [TS]

00:15:57   time I almost always end up changing the [TS]

00:15:59   title right like the original title that [TS]

00:16:01   i'm thinking of ends ends up not being [TS]

00:16:03   the final title and so in my whole [TS]

00:16:05   system every time I would change the [TS]

00:16:07   title it would mean having to change all [TS]

00:16:10   of the references to that in my [TS]

00:16:11   OmniFocus project template system and [TS]

00:16:14   much more of a problem is that meant [TS]

00:16:16   that all of the files that i was using [TS]

00:16:18   in dropbox that were related to this if [TS]

00:16:20   they had a title like you are too dot md [TS]

00:16:24   as the text file that i'm working on if [TS]

00:16:26   i change that title in the file it [TS]

00:16:28   breaks everybody that that file is [TS]

00:16:30   shared with and so if i send something [TS]

00:16:32   off to an expert and then it comes back [TS]

00:16:35   like they want to go review it later if [TS]

00:16:38   i change the title in the meantime then [TS]

00:16:39   that link is going to be broken [TS]

00:16:41   they're not going to be able to see it [TS]

00:16:42   so this way if I just name it gemini dot [TS]

00:16:45   md instead of actually naming it the [TS]

00:16:47   title i have in my mind like oh I know [TS]

00:16:49   what this is Gemini is just the project [TS]

00:16:50   that i'm working on for this video i can [TS]

00:16:52   share out that file and everything stays [TS]

00:16:54   the same so I don't have to keep [TS]

00:16:55   changing it around so i have a very [TS]

00:16:58   practical reason for doing this and also [TS]

00:17:00   it's fun [TS]

00:17:01   so there you go Brady totally reasonable [TS]

00:17:04   care i'm sorry I asked now so basically [TS]

00:17:06   in basically I could I could have [TS]

00:17:10   answered this question without asking [TS]

00:17:11   you the actual answer to the question is [TS]

00:17:13   why does gray have pompous code names [TS]

00:17:15   for his projects is a combination of two [TS]

00:17:17   things [TS]

00:17:18   his paranoia and his overly convoluted [TS]

00:17:21   computer system here uses to work on the [TS]

00:17:23   it's not overly convoluted it's entirely [TS]

00:17:25   appropriate to the task at hand [TS]

00:17:27   ok ok now it's just snow yeah it's so [TS]

00:17:31   frustrating for the last thing in the [TS]

00:17:33   world that i want to have is an overly [TS]

00:17:34   convoluted system i want to have an [TS]

00:17:36   appropriate system and that's exactly [TS]

00:17:37   what i have [TS]

00:17:38   end of argument this episode is brought [TS]

00:17:41   to you in part by hover hover is the [TS]

00:17:43   best way to buy and manage domain names [TS]

00:17:47   it's what I use to manage a huge number [TS]

00:17:49   of domain names that i have i really [TS]

00:17:51   like them and if i can get the domain [TS]

00:17:53   name through them I always will [TS]

00:17:55   when you have a great idea for your blog [TS]

00:17:58   or store or startup you need to get a [TS]

00:18:01   great domain name for it and hover is [TS]

00:18:04   the easiest fastest way to do it when [TS]

00:18:06   you think of a domain that you want you [TS]

00:18:08   can get it through her just so fast [TS]

00:18:10   their website is clean and simple and [TS]

00:18:13   clear of course you might be thinking [TS]

00:18:15   well what business doesn't want things [TS]

00:18:17   to be clean and simple and clear most [TS]

00:18:19   domain registrar's don't want it they [TS]

00:18:21   want things to be complicated they want [TS]

00:18:23   to sign you up for stuff that you don't [TS]

00:18:25   want they want to make it incredibly [TS]

00:18:27   difficult to cancel anything however [TS]

00:18:28   just isn't like that at all which is why [TS]

00:18:31   i prefer them you can get over 400 [TS]

00:18:34   different domain extensions from Homer [TS]

00:18:36   including the classics like calm and [TS]

00:18:38   dotnet and going all the way to the [TS]

00:18:41   really weird ones like dot horse i'm not [TS]

00:18:43   really sure why you would want done [TS]

00:18:45   horse but I'm sure somebody hearing me [TS]

00:18:46   now just realized that that is the [TS]

00:18:48   perfect domain suffix for one of their [TS]

00:18:50   projects if you need a hand with [TS]

00:18:52   anything hovers awesome support team is [TS]

00:18:57   an actual person will pick up the phone [TS]

00:18:59   and answer whatever questions you have [TS]

00:19:03   that you want to make go grab the domain [TS]

00:19:06   at hover dot-com and when you go there [TS]

00:19:09   use the promo code quizmaster all one [TS]

00:19:13   word [TS]

00:19:34   iphone SE is that true [TS]

00:19:36   your soul [TS]

00:19:36   mrs. in this particular case are correct [TS]

00:19:40   how did you find that out was that [TS]

00:19:41   through operation Zeus had how were you [TS]

00:19:46   able to obtain this information I [TS]

00:19:49   subcontracted out the Hamburglar to spy [TS]

00:19:51   on it was going on like yeah there you [TS]

00:19:56   go i have got ya sa isn't that's what [TS]

00:19:59   it's called [TS]

00:19:59   yes I never know what to call it because [TS]

00:20:01   people it's like a five but it's not [TS]

00:20:02   five and all that stuff [TS]

00:20:04   it's a small 1i just got the SE yeah so [TS]

00:20:07   I'm i am incredibly curious as always [TS]

00:20:10   with these things about how do you feel [TS]

00:20:12   about it and keep in mind that as you [TS]

00:20:14   are talking about your Apple products [TS]

00:20:16   there may very well be someone in the [TS]

00:20:18   back of a police car right now who is [TS]

00:20:21   listening to this conversation [TS]

00:20:22   first of all let me say to that person [TS]

00:20:24   in the back of the police car what are [TS]

00:20:26   you doing with your life you got to get [TS]

00:20:27   things in order [TS]

00:20:28   come on you're better than that look at [TS]

00:20:32   that was like the words that was the [TS]

00:20:34   worst pep talk ever for some criminal [TS]

00:20:36   wasn't like what about whatever is what [TS]

00:20:38   do you say to someone who's like you [TS]

00:20:40   know in that situation maybe like we [TS]

00:20:43   have immediately jumped into the Brady [TS]

00:20:45   solves all of the problems in the world [TS]

00:20:46   section of the podcast for very has just [TS]

00:20:48   regret addressed are criminals and posed [TS]

00:20:51   the question i'm sure they have never [TS]

00:20:52   heard what are you doing with your life [TS]

00:20:54   guys after tennis around everything was [TS]

00:20:58   going wrong and then one time I was in [TS]

00:20:59   the back of this place Karen he played [TS]

00:21:01   some podcast and some australian guy [TS]

00:21:03   just said he just asked me what I was [TS]

00:21:05   doing and suddenly I thought what am i [TS]

00:21:07   doing [TS]

00:21:08   yeah when from then on you know yeah and [TS]

00:21:11   from there I moved off and you don't go [TS]

00:21:12   into cancer research and here i am now [TS]

00:21:14   accepting my Nobel Prize the whole [TS]

00:21:17   because of breathing at my phone so well [TS]

00:21:21   you did warn me and I did feel the first [TS]

00:21:23   sort of few minutes when i got up i was [TS]

00:21:26   a bit freaked out by how big and crowded [TS]

00:21:28   the icons felt and I feel a bit like a [TS]

00:21:30   bit fisher-price you know I felt a bit [TS]

00:21:32   childish you on the bigger screen the [TS]

00:21:35   icons to lay out more nicely written but [TS]

00:21:38   I got used to very quickly and i have to [TS]

00:21:40   say i am pleased all the things I was [TS]

00:21:44   concerned about like size of screen for [TS]

00:21:47   viewing things [TS]

00:21:49   have proven to not bother me in the [TS]

00:21:51   slightest and I i really like slipping [TS]

00:21:55   the smaller phone into my pocket I like [TS]

00:21:56   the feeling of walking out the front [TS]

00:21:57   door and just sipping a nice small phone [TS]

00:21:59   into my jeans that sounds really sounds [TS]

00:22:02   really inappropriate but that's better [TS]

00:22:05   anyway there you go make of that what [TS]

00:22:07   you know and i think it didn't sound [TS]

00:22:09   inappropriate at all until you drew [TS]

00:22:11   attention to how inappropriate is hiding [TS]

00:22:13   it was and now and now we're sorry I'm [TS]

00:22:17   sorry I'm sorry people of the internet [TS]

00:22:19   and I like the size and I don't know if [TS]

00:22:22   this is coincidental because I didn't [TS]

00:22:25   like you know setup controls and do it [TS]

00:22:27   scientifically like probably someone [TS]

00:22:29   that you would have but I have noticed I [TS]

00:22:31   i have got a lot less pain in the back [TS]

00:22:34   of my hand [TS]

00:22:34   interesting i was convinced I was having [TS]

00:22:37   pain in my hand that was jutsu I [TS]

00:22:39   actually thought it was due to maybe my [TS]

00:22:40   mouse or my wacom tablet or something I [TS]

00:22:43   don't know but since getting the new [TS]

00:22:45   phone i have not had that problem so I'm [TS]

00:22:48   claiming it is because I'm not [TS]

00:22:50   stretching around my phone and having [TS]

00:22:51   all the problems that i was having with [TS]

00:22:52   the the larger screen so I'm saying [TS]

00:22:55   win-win smaller phone good stuff i am [TS]

00:22:58   noticing my battery runs out a little [TS]

00:23:01   more quickly than I would like but I had [TS]

00:23:02   that problem with the bigger final two [TS]

00:23:04   so i just think i use my phone too much [TS]

00:23:06   and don't charge it often enough so i'm [TS]

00:23:08   not blaming small phone for that i am [TS]

00:23:10   saying small phone for the wind [TS]

00:23:13   smartphone for the win excellent [TS]

00:23:15   excellent i was the idea that use a bit [TS]

00:23:17   of young people jog in there you know [TS]

00:23:19   there you go hey cool kids are you guys [TS]

00:23:22   up to [TS]

00:23:24   did I do that inappropriately know that [TS]

00:23:25   was perfectly fine again if if you had [TS]

00:23:27   just drawn no attention to it you would [TS]

00:23:29   have been fine you would have been able [TS]

00:23:30   to slide right by our no no I think I [TS]

00:23:33   think you're awkward pause do enough [TS]

00:23:35   attention to it i am very glad to hear [TS]

00:23:41   that you like your new phone at that was [TS]

00:23:43   thinking some of our private [TS]

00:23:45   conversations I was encouraging you to [TS]

00:23:46   get it and you had said to me several [TS]

00:23:47   times that you were convinced that [TS]

00:23:48   you're bigger phone was giving you some [TS]

00:23:50   hand strain using it and of all of the [TS]

00:23:54   people i know you were probably the one [TS]

00:23:56   who was complaining most about the new [TS]

00:23:59   now what is it two years old iphone 6 [TS]

00:24:01   sighs phone [TS]

00:24:02   like you just never seemed happy with it [TS]

00:24:04   at all right from the beginning so I'm [TS]

00:24:07   I'm really happy that you have [TS]

00:24:08   downgraded to the smaller size like I [TS]

00:24:12   have no not downgraded its not [TS]

00:24:15   downgraded I've downsized you downsize [TS]

00:24:18   you downsides to the smaller firm [TS]

00:24:21   downgraded I'm terribly sorry I didn't [TS]

00:24:24   mean to I didn't mean to express it like [TS]

00:24:25   that I mean technically it is a slower [TS]

00:24:27   phone it has you know a few things that [TS]

00:24:29   are technically worse than the six but [TS]

00:24:32   i'm imagining that you didn't even [TS]

00:24:34   notice what any of those things were and [TS]

00:24:36   so you're perfectly fine and i will feel [TS]

00:24:37   no need to point them out to you right [TS]

00:24:40   are you still happy with the smaller [TS]

00:24:41   fine since you made that downsize [TS]

00:24:43   downgrade down whatever down find [TS]

00:24:46   ticking down phone i like that down [TS]

00:24:48   phones though is the verb here [TS]

00:24:49   oh yeah I know I still totally love it [TS]

00:24:51   and the thing that has been interesting [TS]

00:24:54   to me is I wanted to know how it would [TS]

00:24:56   hold up on a very intensive travel [TS]

00:24:59   period when a much more likely to be [TS]

00:25:01   using the phone quite intensely and I [TS]

00:25:04   got a battery case for it for this trip [TS]

00:25:07   but I would have done that with any size [TS]

00:25:09   phone that i've had i've always felt [TS]

00:25:11   that as soon as you use the phone a [TS]

00:25:13   little bit intensely you cannot count on [TS]

00:25:15   the battery to make it through an entire [TS]

00:25:17   day no matter what you're doing so i am [TS]

00:25:20   actually extra loving the small phone [TS]

00:25:22   precisely because i have a battery case [TS]

00:25:24   on it now and it's like well if I had a [TS]

00:25:26   bigger phone and had the battery case i [TS]

00:25:28   would just be so aware of this thing in [TS]

00:25:29   my pocket all the time but the little [TS]

00:25:31   phone with a little battery cases like [TS]

00:25:33   this is perfect like I'm guaranteed to [TS]

00:25:35   be able to make it to the end of the day [TS]

00:25:37   no matter what I do no matter how [TS]

00:25:39   intensely am using the phone to do [TS]

00:25:41   driving directions and mac map lookups [TS]

00:25:43   and ordering goobers and all this kind [TS]

00:25:44   of stuff so i have to say i am totally [TS]

00:25:48   in love with the little phone and now [TS]

00:25:50   doubly so on intensive travel periods [TS]

00:25:54   like to be able to have the smaller [TS]

00:25:55   device is just so much so much bigger of [TS]

00:25:58   a win than having a slightly larger [TS]

00:26:00   device so I'm really happy about it and [TS]

00:26:04   I hope that people like you [TS]

00:26:06   the people like me keep buying this [TS]

00:26:07   little phone and so that they update it [TS]

00:26:09   sooner than they otherwise would like [TS]

00:26:11   that's my big hope so because i'm going [TS]

00:26:14   to promote to everybody everybody out [TS]

00:26:15   there going [TS]

00:26:16   by the smaller phone so we can get a [TS]

00:26:18   better smaller phone sooner that's a [TS]

00:26:19   that's what I'm hoping for [TS]

00:26:21   hmm i wonder what the sales figures a [TS]

00:26:22   lot i'd love to know i would like to [TS]

00:26:25   know what to tell us if we ask nicely [TS]

00:26:26   i'll send an email to Tim yeah she [TS]

00:26:29   listened to the podcast we love to know [TS]

00:26:31   the sales numbers of course it does [TS]

00:26:33   of course he does he's code Tim good [TS]

00:26:34   point good point that how that works [TS]

00:26:37   everybody who listen to the podcast is [TS]

00:26:39   named him and then also everyone who is [TS]

00:26:41   named him by definition also listen to [TS]

00:26:43   the podcast yeah that's how that works [TS]

00:26:45   there i say no floor that luxury right [TS]

00:26:46   perfect nailed it [TS]

00:26:48   speaking of phones i have installed a [TS]

00:26:52   new app onto my find that being snapchat [TS]

00:26:55   ok I saw you [TS]

00:26:57   this is this is now where i will i will [TS]

00:26:58   sound like the old and out of touch [TS]

00:26:59   person going through for the win [TS]

00:27:02   uh I saw you installing the snapchat [TS]

00:27:06   onto your phone and then talking about [TS]

00:27:08   your snapchatting and I saw this on [TS]

00:27:11   Twitter and it was one of those moments [TS]

00:27:13   where I was just thinking I know nothing [TS]

00:27:15   about this i have no ability to [TS]

00:27:16   understand what's going on I don't [TS]

00:27:17   understand the snapchat and i would like [TS]

00:27:21   you to explain the snapchat to me Brady [TS]

00:27:23   because everybody seems to be talking [TS]

00:27:24   about it everywhere I go I see ghosts [TS]

00:27:26   and people discussing the snapchat and [TS]

00:27:28   asking if I'm on snapchat which I'm not [TS]

00:27:30   well great let me let me tell you this [TS]

00:27:31   if not knowing about snapchat makes you [TS]

00:27:35   feel old [TS]

00:27:36   installing snapshot on your phone will [TS]

00:27:38   make you feel even colder [TS]

00:27:40   ok is it not like installing other apps [TS]

00:27:43   is that not how that well no no the [TS]

00:27:45   actual installation is ok but once you [TS]

00:27:47   open that I swear I have never felt more [TS]

00:27:50   out of touch with technology and the [TS]

00:27:52   youth of today and when I tried to [TS]

00:27:54   understand how to work snatcher [TS]

00:27:56   I honestly felt like a bear or and get a [TS]

00:27:59   brick trying to make like I was just [TS]

00:28:02   like I was scraping the screen and [TS]

00:28:04   shaking my phone it is pressing all [TS]

00:28:06   these icons that I had no idea what they [TS]

00:28:09   meant those symbols i didn't even know [TS]

00:28:10   existed [TS]

00:28:12   I felt like an alien had given me the [TS]

00:28:14   finest in here go ahead make a call and [TS]

00:28:16   I was like I can't even unlock this [TS]

00:28:18   thing with the device for the first time [TS]

00:28:22   in my life I was going on to like Google [TS]

00:28:24   and YouTube and putting in search terms [TS]

00:28:26   like how to snapchat [TS]

00:28:28   what I had no idea it was unbelievable [TS]

00:28:36   it was built it was actually two [TS]

00:28:38   pressing it was depressing anyway that [TS]

00:28:43   little piece of information right there [TS]

00:28:44   right going to google and type of how do [TS]

00:28:46   i do the snapchat it's like it's just [TS]

00:28:49   you just know that you have lost before [TS]

00:28:52   you have even begun [TS]

00:28:54   it's like when you doing it's just over [TS]

00:28:56   haha I was one step from going to a [TS]

00:29:00   bookshop and trying to buy like a [TS]

00:29:01   dummy's guide or something so what I'm [TS]

00:29:03   hearing here is that you might not be [TS]

00:29:05   the best person to explain the snapchat [TS]

00:29:07   to me [TS]

00:29:07   well no I didn't give up either existed [TS]

00:29:11   ok and i don't i don't know many people [TS]

00:29:13   who use that despite the fact it's huge [TS]

00:29:15   and more people use it and Twitter and [TS]

00:29:17   all that which is why I thought I need [TS]

00:29:18   to have a look at this thing I don't [TS]

00:29:20   know many people who use the only person [TS]

00:29:21   who's there is a good friend destiny of [TS]

00:29:23   smartereveryday Fame who is only loves [TS]

00:29:26   it and use it all the time and he's a [TS]

00:29:27   real disciple of snapchat I had figured [TS]

00:29:31   out how to use it before I contacted him [TS]

00:29:32   because I couldn't contact him and just [TS]

00:29:34   say like you know what does that blue [TS]

00:29:35   button main so I i I'd kind of learn to [TS]

00:29:38   use it and then I contacted him and he [TS]

00:29:40   gave me a little pep talk and told me [TS]

00:29:42   why it was great and I am I am now using [TS]

00:29:45   it i've been using it for two weeks [TS]

00:29:47   maybe i'm not exactly sure who i am [TS]

00:29:50   called Brady Haran all one word on [TS]

00:29:52   snapchat if you want to go and hang with [TS]

00:29:53   me and if I ever in and you never know [TS]

00:29:58   you might see all sorts of embarrassing [TS]

00:29:59   things as I accidentally take photos at [TS]

00:30:01   my nostrils and things like that but I [TS]

00:30:04   now I now i'm using it so i can comment [TS]

00:30:05   on what i think about it before you go [TS]

00:30:07   any further because I think you might [TS]

00:30:10   not realize how literally nothing I [TS]

00:30:12   understand about snapchat I don't even [TS]

00:30:15   know is this a messaging service like [TS]

00:30:17   Twitter or is it like like a private [TS]

00:30:20   messaging service like I message or is [TS]

00:30:22   it like a facebook i known i know [TS]

00:30:24   nothing [TS]

00:30:25   please explain i would say it is a [TS]

00:30:28   combination of I message and twitter i [TS]

00:30:31   would say it emerges it's somewhere [TS]

00:30:34   between those two [TS]

00:30:36   ok I'm it's really hard to explain a lot [TS]

00:30:38   from scratches and it's like saying you [TS]

00:30:39   know what is blue but it's quite hot [TS]

00:30:42   but using Twitter and and I messages as [TS]

00:30:44   a reference points are probably not a [TS]

00:30:46   bad not bad way to go [TS]

00:30:48   so they're kind of multiple ways to use [TS]

00:30:51   it ok at like there are multiple ways to [TS]

00:30:53   use Twitter so you get you can have like [TS]

00:30:54   a public before we come on to like the [TS]

00:30:56   actual messages in the content let's [TS]

00:30:58   just talk about the delivery of the [TS]

00:31:00   content and when it comes to the [TS]

00:31:02   delivery of the content they seem to be [TS]

00:31:04   these two main ways you can sort of [TS]

00:31:06   create a publicly visible stream that's [TS]

00:31:09   called your story and you could put [TS]

00:31:11   things on that through the day like I [TS]

00:31:13   look I woke up this morning and here's [TS]

00:31:14   my bacon and eggs and i took the dog for [TS]

00:31:16   a walk and here's a cute picture of [TS]

00:31:18   audrey and now i'm doing some work and [TS]

00:31:20   now i'm feeding the chickens and anyone [TS]

00:31:23   can go and look at this story if they [TS]

00:31:25   sort of have added you and you know [TS]

00:31:27   subscribe to whatever you want to call [TS]

00:31:28   it ok so people can follow you like on [TS]

00:31:31   Twitter and follower public stream of [TS]

00:31:32   things that you're posting ok yes oh yes [TS]

00:31:35   so you could go to snapchat and say I [TS]

00:31:37   don't want anything to do with strangers [TS]

00:31:38   but I want them to be able to see what [TS]

00:31:40   i'm doing and you could just post things [TS]

00:31:42   all day to your story [TS]

00:31:43   Lou and I do that I'll talk about talk [TS]

00:31:45   about that again in a minute so I have [TS]

00:31:47   got a story through the day that people [TS]

00:31:48   can watch and they can see that [TS]

00:31:50   literally can't see me you know walking [TS]

00:31:52   the dogs and all the different things I [TS]

00:31:54   do in one of my incredibly exciting days [TS]

00:31:56   or maybe it's more interesting fun you [TS]

00:31:58   know blowing stuff up with Neil in the [TS]

00:32:00   chemistry lab okay but question [TS]

00:32:02   these are photos that you are then [TS]

00:32:03   posting this is not this is not like a [TS]

00:32:05   periscope live broadcast or can you do [TS]

00:32:08   that i have no idea i don't know about [TS]

00:32:09   any live component but they are photos [TS]

00:32:11   and video [TS]

00:32:12   okay great I'll concentrate on the [TS]

00:32:13   content at the moment i'll just continue [TS]

00:32:15   on with the delivery because the other [TS]

00:32:18   way that things are delivered are like [TS]

00:32:20   personal messages direct messages and [TS]

00:32:24   these can lead to an individual they [TS]

00:32:27   could I could just send a picture to [TS]

00:32:28   gray of of me in the shower saying hey [TS]

00:32:31   great i'm in the shower man what are you [TS]

00:32:32   up to [TS]

00:32:33   and and you will receive that personally [TS]

00:32:35   and click on a button and up pops the [TS]

00:32:36   picture from Brady great or i could send [TS]

00:32:38   it to five or six people or i could send [TS]

00:32:41   it to everyone i'm friends with I could [TS]

00:32:43   send it to hundreds and hundreds of [TS]

00:32:44   people or i could send it to any person [TS]

00:32:46   who's username I have and when if they [TS]

00:32:49   click on it and click on my name up will [TS]

00:32:50   pop up the message blue and that same [TS]

00:32:53   that seems to be in many ways that [TS]

00:32:55   bigger use of it it's rather than sort [TS]

00:32:57   of these big public streams like Twitter [TS]

00:33:00   it seems to more be small circles of [TS]

00:33:03   friends or personal conversations that [TS]

00:33:05   seems to be a big use snapchat that to [TS]

00:33:08   me from my very little knowledge seems [TS]

00:33:11   to be the strength is this more personal [TS]

00:33:13   interaction which is fantastic it's not [TS]

00:33:15   really what I'm looking for in a social [TS]

00:33:18   media thing especially one that none of [TS]

00:33:19   my friends use I'm obviously looking for [TS]

00:33:22   more something where I can talk to [TS]

00:33:23   people who have an interest in what I'm [TS]

00:33:25   doing but i do but i do like interacting [TS]

00:33:27   with people who watch my videos so it [TS]

00:33:30   has more good to me than it would to you [TS]

00:33:32   anyway here we come into some problems [TS]

00:33:34   with that for me and i will come to the [TS]

00:33:37   content in a minute but let me just talk [TS]

00:33:38   about this problem and I've been [TS]

00:33:40   consulting with my good friend justin [TS]

00:33:41   about it because at first there's this [TS]

00:33:44   setting that says you only receive these [TS]

00:33:46   personal snaps from people your friends [TS]

00:33:49   with and obviously I'm friends with very [TS]

00:33:51   few people so I received very few of [TS]

00:33:53   these personal snaps basically only from [TS]

00:33:55   destin and one or two other people and [TS]

00:33:58   it was recommended to me by destiny no [TS]

00:34:00   man change that so everyone can snap you [TS]

00:34:02   he said do it that everyone do it and [TS]

00:34:05   like you know tell them something to [TS]

00:34:06   snap your destiny actually went on to [TS]

00:34:08   his snapchat everyone send picture Brady [TS]

00:34:10   a picture of your dog and so I did and [TS]

00:34:16   let me say it was really good fun [TS]

00:34:18   everyone was sending me pictures of [TS]

00:34:20   their dog or everyone was sending [TS]

00:34:22   messages going to operate it's so great [TS]

00:34:23   you're on snapchat and I was getting all [TS]

00:34:25   these personal messages and I really [TS]

00:34:26   liked it for a day or two it that was [TS]

00:34:28   really nice but what happens then is [TS]

00:34:30   after that after that has happened and [TS]

00:34:32   people have no reason to contact you [TS]

00:34:34   directly [TS]

00:34:35   you're just on their big long list now [TS]

00:34:37   and every time they do something but now [TS]

00:34:38   like see a leaf on the ground or ate [TS]

00:34:43   spaghetti for breakfast now take a [TS]

00:34:45   picture and now snap it to everyone on [TS]

00:34:46   the list and i'm on that list and i'm on [TS]

00:34:49   lots of people's lists so suddenly I'm [TS]

00:34:51   getting I'm I see all these names coming [TS]

00:34:53   up you've got snaps from bill and Sandy [TS]

00:34:56   and Superman 101 and cgpgrey and you're [TS]

00:34:59   clicking through them and some of them a [TS]

00:35:01   personal and aimed at you which is nice [TS]

00:35:03   you know [TS]

00:35:03   hey Brady how you doing i really enjoyed [TS]

00:35:05   the latest hello Internet [TS]

00:35:07   here's a picture of me listening to [TS]

00:35:08   hello internet on top [TS]

00:35:09   kilimanjaro that's really nice but in [TS]

00:35:12   dispersed with all that there are people [TS]

00:35:13   who would just basically spammers who [TS]

00:35:16   just want to tell everyone in the world [TS]

00:35:17   everything and that's fine but i can't i [TS]

00:35:20   can't be doing with that because there [TS]

00:35:21   are too many of them so what I started [TS]

00:35:23   doing was I started just blocking those [TS]

00:35:25   people if they were like persistent but [TS]

00:35:28   i would allow other people to continue [TS]

00:35:30   stepping in case they wanted to say [TS]

00:35:31   something to me who but that but then [TS]

00:35:33   those people were blocking we're getting [TS]

00:35:35   blocked from my snapchat story my public [TS]

00:35:37   fade so they were contacted me on [TS]

00:35:39   Twitter going Brody have you come off [TS]

00:35:41   snapchat I can't see you [TS]

00:35:42   ok as i see i see what's happening i was [TS]

00:35:45   that I was being honest I was saying [TS]

00:35:46   look sorry i think i must have blocked [TS]

00:35:47   because you were just sending me snaps [TS]

00:35:49   that when aimed at me and you're [TS]

00:35:50   clogging me up and they were like I'm [TS]

00:35:52   sorry I won't do that anymore can you [TS]

00:35:53   unblock me so I can see your public fade [TS]

00:35:55   again I don't quite know if there's a [TS]

00:35:57   solution to this I don't know about or [TS]

00:35:58   what to do but so for me this is one of [TS]

00:36:00   the reasons why i like twitter is [TS]

00:36:02   because the the broadcasting following [TS]

00:36:05   relationship is asymmetrical that you [TS]

00:36:08   can follow me who I don't follow them [TS]

00:36:10   which is which is what I want on my [TS]

00:36:14   Twitter experience what I want out of a [TS]

00:36:16   social network but it sounds like [TS]

00:36:17   snapchat is more on the Facebook and [TS]

00:36:20   following is a mutual thing at 2pm agree [TS]

00:36:24   to follow each other it can be no no [TS]

00:36:26   because I don't follow anyone okay [TS]

00:36:28   I've allowed people who don't follow me [TS]

00:36:29   to get access to me by sending snaps [TS]

00:36:31   that may have to stop at some point or I [TS]

00:36:34   may have to just open the door [TS]

00:36:35   occasionally like say today I'm [TS]

00:36:36   accepting snaps because i want to see [TS]

00:36:38   your pictures of a cloud but but then [TS]

00:36:40   the next day i shut off again I don't I [TS]

00:36:42   don't I haven't figured out how to use [TS]

00:36:44   it yet i do like the personal [TS]

00:36:46   interaction because i like that more [TS]

00:36:47   than you and I do quite like hearing [TS]

00:36:49   from people directly in a bit of [TS]

00:36:51   personal contact but I don't like I [TS]

00:36:53   can't handle too much of it so I haven't [TS]

00:36:55   quite figured out how to use it even [TS]

00:36:56   breathe he has limits and a few more [TS]

00:36:58   negative things i'll say is I find that [TS]

00:37:00   I don't like the design very much it [TS]

00:37:02   does seem too [TS]

00:37:04   Childish the logo with that ghosts are i [TS]

00:37:06   think is just god-awful and my but i [TS]

00:37:11   don't know maybe it's passed some [TS]

00:37:12   Marilyn point where people it's so bad [TS]

00:37:14   it's good and bad an hour [TS]

00:37:16   I don't like the design i don't like how [TS]

00:37:17   it looks it doesn't feel very cool to me [TS]

00:37:19   but maybe that's just a personal [TS]

00:37:21   sensibility and then the young people [TS]

00:37:23   obviously lover let me say some positive [TS]

00:37:25   things though what I do like about it is [TS]

00:37:27   I like that it's very visual because [TS]

00:37:30   it's only photos and video [TS]

00:37:31   most of the time and you can do things [TS]

00:37:34   to it like you can you can add emojis [TS]

00:37:36   all over or you can give your finger and [TS]

00:37:38   draw pictures and you can add text and I [TS]

00:37:40   actually really like the creative side [TS]

00:37:43   of it it actually is giving me a [TS]

00:37:45   creative outlet I feel like I don't have [TS]

00:37:47   anywhere else particularly to be funny [TS]

00:37:50   I mean I don't have I don't have people [TS]

00:37:53   find it particularly funny but i find [TS]

00:37:54   myself hilarious video I quite enjoy [TS]

00:37:58   being able to like make a joke or from [TS]

00:38:00   time to time and i think snapchat is [TS]

00:38:02   really good for that and I'm really [TS]

00:38:03   enjoying taking a picture of making a [TS]

00:38:05   video and making a corny dad joke or [TS]

00:38:08   making a pan or drawing a funny picture [TS]

00:38:10   or using an emoticon in a funny way so [TS]

00:38:13   I'm quite enjoying the ability to [TS]

00:38:15   express that side of myself which [TS]

00:38:17   doesn't work so well in Twitter and I [TS]

00:38:19   like that it's all done very visually i [TS]

00:38:21   am finding it more than just a [TS]

00:38:23   distraction i'm finding it quite [TS]

00:38:25   engaging in that respect and I am liking [TS]

00:38:27   some of the interaction I have with [TS]

00:38:29   people who do it back to me and we'll [TS]

00:38:31   send me a funny picture at the or you [TS]

00:38:33   know a picture of them watching a video [TS]

00:38:34   or reacting to what I do [TS]

00:38:36   so overall so far i'm sticking with it [TS]

00:38:39   because I'm liking it but it does make [TS]

00:38:41   me feel old and it's not why would make [TS]

00:38:45   if I was making my perfect social media [TS]

00:38:47   and my recommendation is you stay away [TS]

00:38:49   from that you stay far far away because [TS]

00:38:51   there's nothing in this that you would [TS]

00:38:53   like but it's funny you mention that [TS]

00:38:55   because while we were typing I literally [TS]

00:38:56   opened up that shared task manager [TS]

00:38:59   between myself and my assistant and like [TS]

00:39:01   make gray a snapchat ? I hear it's big [TS]

00:39:04   with the kids these days right like task [TS]

00:39:06   like is this the thing that I'm here to [TS]

00:39:07   do but so you are saying that no I [TS]

00:39:10   should not have nothing to gain here I [TS]

00:39:12   think you only gain if you're willing to [TS]

00:39:14   give [TS]

00:39:15   and I don't think you are someone who [TS]

00:39:17   wants to give what snapchat once I think [TS]

00:39:20   you have to sort of give yourself a [TS]

00:39:22   little bit more than you would be [TS]

00:39:23   comfortable with i already give so much [TS]

00:39:25   of myself to the people reading you [TS]

00:39:27   don't give a lot of yourself but i don't [TS]

00:39:29   i don't think it's for you but if you go [TS]

00:39:31   on I'd be over the moon because i think [TS]

00:39:33   it would be really funny and maybe you [TS]

00:39:35   know and and you're a funny guy so maybe [TS]

00:39:38   you could express your sort of your bro [TS]

00:39:40   right here making some quite interesting [TS]

00:39:43   ways i would love to see how you did it [TS]

00:39:45   well the other thing about snapchat of [TS]

00:39:46   course which i haven't pointed out that [TS]

00:39:48   everyone knows is that they don't last [TS]

00:39:50   very long obviously these things fade [TS]

00:39:52   can be looked at once and they fade away [TS]

00:39:54   after a day if they don't get looked at [TS]

00:39:56   no they're also very fleeting and [TS]

00:39:58   therefore it is a hungry based and I [TS]

00:40:01   don't think you could feed this based [TS]

00:40:03   either because if you if you've got one [TS]

00:40:05   of these snapchat stories and only shows [TS]

00:40:06   your last 24 hours of snaps and then [TS]

00:40:09   they'll fade away so in this you're [TS]

00:40:10   willing to sort of sustained and and [TS]

00:40:12   feed on a daily basis it kind of doesn't [TS]

00:40:15   serve quite such a good purpose so [TS]

00:40:17   that's another that's another strike [TS]

00:40:19   against it for for you in particular [TS]

00:40:21   so if i sign up to snapchat and i said i [TS]

00:40:23   want to see all the funny stuff that [TS]

00:40:24   Brady's been up to I only get to see the [TS]

00:40:25   last 24 hours of funny stuff that you [TS]

00:40:27   been up to [TS]

00:40:28   that's right yeah that's right you can't [TS]

00:40:29   you can't go back over you know and see [TS]

00:40:31   that classic joke I made three weeks ago [TS]

00:40:33   or even two or three days ago that's [TS]

00:40:35   already gone you're stuck with what I've [TS]

00:40:36   done which is which is a strength of it [TS]

00:40:38   as well but is a weakness so make of [TS]

00:40:43   that what you will [TS]

00:40:44   that's it that's that's a really [TS]

00:40:45   interesting feature because it i can see [TS]

00:40:47   what they're going for with that because [TS]

00:40:50   Twitter does have the problem of oh [TS]

00:40:53   you're making an off-the-cuff remark but [TS]

00:40:55   is there until the end of time [TS]

00:40:57   right like you just you just happen to [TS]

00:40:58   say something but then that sentence is [TS]

00:41:00   permanently archived forever [TS]

00:41:01   yeah so I can see what they're going for [TS]

00:41:03   with snapchat is to make it feel like it [TS]

00:41:05   is more immediate but that's to me seems [TS]

00:41:08   like it's the worst of both worlds [TS]

00:41:09   because i'm sure someone somewhere is [TS]

00:41:13   archiving all of this stuff anyway so [TS]

00:41:16   you have the feeling of temporariness [TS]

00:41:18   but there's still got to be permanent [TS]

00:41:21   records [TS]

00:41:21   oh yeah at everything and also [TS]

00:41:23   everything gets screencapped like if you [TS]

00:41:25   do and you actually know if people have [TS]

00:41:27   screencapped what you did there are [TS]

00:41:28   steps on that [TS]

00:41:29   there's a symbol for everything so few [TS]

00:41:30   yeah if you may accidentally make some [TS]

00:41:31   incredibly racist comment and you've got [TS]

00:41:34   a huge following my there's going to be [TS]

00:41:36   screencaps firing all over the world so [TS]

00:41:38   don't you have it's not like you can say [TS]

00:41:40   all what I didn't mean that deleted and [TS]

00:41:42   pretend it never happened it happened [TS]

00:41:44   there really cements in my head this is [TS]

00:41:46   not even the worst of both worlds but [TS]

00:41:49   then if it if there's a feeling of [TS]

00:41:51   temporariness that temporariness is just [TS]

00:41:55   a lie [TS]

00:41:56   it encourages you to just do dumber [TS]

00:41:57   stuff in public yes maybe is exactly [TS]

00:41:59   what snapchat once right baby thats [TS]

00:42:01   exactly there go that is that the other [TS]

00:42:04   thing about snapchat is it does it is [TS]

00:42:06   people doing dumb things [TS]

00:42:08   it is incredibly vacuous and it is quite [TS]

00:42:12   yeah it does so the nurse's personality [TS]

00:42:14   to it is you know there's no arms legs [TS]

00:42:16   because also you you know you have to [TS]

00:42:19   film the thing or do the thing [TS]

00:42:20   immediately you can't sort of craft [TS]

00:42:22   something over weeks and weeks and [TS]

00:42:23   release on snapchat is very immediate [TS]

00:42:25   which is nice and it gives us insight [TS]

00:42:27   into people and you see into their lives [TS]

00:42:30   and I quite like that you know i love [TS]

00:42:31   watching Destin feed the chickens or [TS]

00:42:34   drive to work and you know I feel like [TS]

00:42:36   you know he's my mate and I feel closer [TS]

00:42:37   to him when I'm when I'm seeing him do [TS]

00:42:39   these things you know we can't talk on [TS]

00:42:41   the phone every day and I like that so [TS]

00:42:42   for this sort of one-on-one friendships [TS]

00:42:44   sort of thing it's it's nice because I [TS]

00:42:46   sort of see what he's up to every day [TS]

00:42:47   and he can see what i'm up to every day [TS]

00:42:49   but for sort of that wider audience [TS]

00:42:52   thing which professionally is something [TS]

00:42:54   you and I have an interesting as well [TS]

00:42:56   whoo it's less useful and less part of [TS]

00:42:58   your sort of professional modus operandi [TS]

00:43:01   is to allow people into your life em in [TS]

00:43:04   which case is brilliant look if you if [TS]

00:43:06   you're very dependent on that sort of [TS]

00:43:08   personal relationship where everyone [TS]

00:43:09   feels like their absolute best make em [TS]

00:43:12   then it works really well and that [TS]

00:43:14   transient nature of two also sort of [TS]

00:43:16   forces people's had you know you know [TS]

00:43:18   they can't trick you they have to feed [TS]

00:43:20   you every day and give you the stuff [TS]

00:43:22   every day so it works for what it wants [TS]

00:43:24   to do but I can't see how that would [TS]

00:43:26   work VA this has been very enlightening [TS]

00:43:28   Brady this is this is very interesting [TS]

00:43:30   is that I feel like like with you and I [TS]

00:43:35   anybody who make their living on the [TS]

00:43:37   internet you have to have some kind of [TS]

00:43:39   awareness of what's coming over the her [TS]

00:43:42   Eisen and snapchat was one of those [TS]

00:43:44   things where it it cross the threshold [TS]

00:43:46   where I realized I can no longer ignore [TS]

00:43:48   whatever this thing is it's been on my [TS]

00:43:50   mind that I have to at some point at [TS]

00:43:53   least talk to somebody about what [TS]

00:43:54   snapchat is again making a living on the [TS]

00:43:57   internet you you have a professional [TS]

00:43:58   responsibility to be aware of these [TS]

00:44:00   things at the very least and so the [TS]

00:44:02   longer you're talking about snapchat the [TS]

00:44:04   less it sounds like there is anything [TS]

00:44:06   here for me though I still might end up [TS]

00:44:09   just making an account just so i can i [TS]

00:44:11   can look at it of course directly myself [TS]

00:44:13   and kind of play around with it it's [TS]

00:44:14   interesting to hear about it and i think [TS]

00:44:17   i can see why it's gotten so popular i'm [TS]

00:44:19   sure everyone screaming as well look at [TS]

00:44:21   that podcast player saying that he's [TS]

00:44:23   missing out some of the most important [TS]

00:44:25   things of course what i will do is you [TS]

00:44:27   can't download your own snaps and [TS]

00:44:29   stories onto your phone to keep him [TS]

00:44:30   permanently for yourself [TS]

00:44:32   so what I'll do is I'll get one of my [TS]

00:44:34   stories that i've downloaded one of my [TS]

00:44:37   24-hour sequences and i will somehow [TS]

00:44:41   make that available for the hello [TS]

00:44:45   Internet listeners in the show notes and [TS]

00:44:46   they can go and have a look at one of my [TS]

00:44:48   24 hours look like just so they can see [TS]

00:44:49   what snapchat actually looks like i'm [TS]

00:44:51   talking about and and you as well great [TS]

00:44:53   yeah but I be very curious to see that [TS]

00:44:55   maybe you can do a series of screengrabs [TS]

00:44:57   or something i can i can put them all up [TS]

00:44:58   as an image gallery somewhere i know you [TS]

00:45:00   can put it as a whole video you could [TS]

00:45:01   sit and watch it for you know one minute [TS]

00:45:03   only ever long it lasts you can watch [TS]

00:45:05   the day so I'll figure out how to do it [TS]

00:45:07   I'll get off my phone and give it to you [TS]

00:45:08   and so if you don't want to download the [TS]

00:45:10   app and you want to see what a snapchat [TS]

00:45:12   story looks like hopefully we will [TS]

00:45:15   enable that if i can make the at work [TS]

00:45:17   provided you have working and 44 the [TS]

00:45:21   percentage of our listeners who are like [TS]

00:45:23   what is this snapchat yeah you and I [TS]

00:45:26   probably the only two people were [TS]

00:45:28   talking about like it's this strange [TS]

00:45:30   except everyone is actually on snapchat [TS]

00:45:31   the moment we'll be listening [TS]

00:45:33   yeah it was it that was essentially what [TS]

00:45:35   was just going through my mind is what [TS]

00:45:37   percentage of the listener base is not [TS]

00:45:39   already on snapchat it might be just you [TS]

00:45:41   and me if you're like me you might be a [TS]

00:45:43   little put off when you listen to a [TS]

00:45:45   podcast that sounds like it's been [TS]

00:45:46   recorded in someone's echoey bathroom [TS]

00:45:49   but forgive me for this sponsorship [TS]

00:45:51   great because i am literally in my [TS]

00:45:53   bathroom as i speak is the tap and I'm [TS]

00:45:58   here because I want to talk to you about [TS]

00:46:00   today sponsor [TS]

00:46:01   harrods.com Harry's offers high-quality [TS]

00:46:04   razors and blades for a fraction of the [TS]

00:46:06   price of the big razor brands go to [TS]

00:46:09   Harry's dot-com and use the promo code [TS]

00:46:11   hi2 save five dollars of your first [TS]

00:46:15   purchase now I've got not one but two [TS]

00:46:18   Harry says that say a perk of them being [TS]

00:46:21   a sponsor of the show and i'm looking at [TS]

00:46:23   them now he's not picking it up i'll [TS]

00:46:25   just take my hand against the sink in [TS]

00:46:27   case you don't believe me [TS]

00:46:28   although why would you not believe me of [TS]

00:46:30   course you believe me I'm holding it now [TS]

00:46:31   I've got the silver Winston blade really [TS]

00:46:34   nice really nice hand feel but also kind [TS]

00:46:37   of heavy it feels sturdy it feels [TS]

00:46:39   expensive which it's not [TS]

00:46:40   see I like my products a bit sleeker and [TS]

00:46:42   classier than the somewhat over design [TS]

00:46:45   products that some of the other [TS]

00:46:46   companies make and this really fits the [TS]

00:46:48   bill [TS]

00:46:49   it actually looks like it was made to be [TS]

00:46:50   in this bathroom and another thing I [TS]

00:46:52   like about Harry's is the packaging [TS]

00:46:55   normally I throw packaging away but you [TS]

00:46:56   can't throw the hairies packaging oh [TS]

00:46:58   it's so nice here we go [TS]

00:47:01   got a cute little logo all this stuff [TS]

00:47:03   comes in great little boxes not all that [TS]

00:47:05   silly blister packs and colorful silly [TS]

00:47:08   stuff but the other brands use you feel [TS]

00:47:10   that you're buying something really nice [TS]

00:47:12   now I've also got here my spare blades [TS]

00:47:16   let me do a blade change so you can [TS]

00:47:18   experience the sound of a blade change [TS]

00:47:21   now these blades are just easy to use [TS]

00:47:25   their really good Harry's make their own [TS]

00:47:27   blades from a factory in Germany it was [TS]

00:47:30   actually blade factory there like so [TS]

00:47:32   much they bought the factory and that [TS]

00:47:34   means you can get these high-quality [TS]

00:47:35   blades at factory direct prices now the [TS]

00:47:38   starter set for fifty dollars you can [TS]

00:47:40   get a handle mooster izing shave cream [TS]

00:47:43   or gel i have the shave cream here that [TS]

00:47:46   nothing's going to make much noise for [TS]

00:47:48   you but give a little squeeze but oops [TS]

00:47:52   don't point to shave cream at your [TS]

00:47:55   microphone on your chest when you're [TS]

00:47:56   doing this smells really nice too does [TS]

00:47:59   the job [TS]

00:48:00   but you might prefer the gel I'm a cream [TS]

00:48:02   man myself [TS]

00:48:03   so anyway that starter set as I was [TS]

00:48:04   saying handle cream or gel plus 3 razor [TS]

00:48:08   blades and then when you need more [TS]

00:48:10   blades they're about two dollars h or [TS]

00:48:12   less depending on how many you order and [TS]

00:48:14   you can do all this online gets [TS]

00:48:16   delivered straight to your door [TS]

00:48:17   I was actually just looking at the harry [TS]

00:48:18   side a couple of minutes ago at the [TS]

00:48:19   moment as i speak they're doing a [TS]

00:48:21   limited-edition status set with a new [TS]

00:48:23   handle which isn't silver like mine but [TS]

00:48:26   it's really cool matte black it's [TS]

00:48:28   actually really cool looking i mention [TS]

00:48:30   sort of one growing with like I don't [TS]

00:48:32   think would fit in my bathroom now I [TS]

00:48:34   have a little kind of chrome and stuff [TS]

00:48:36   like that so I think there's silver [TS]

00:48:37   handle is still the way to go for me but [TS]

00:48:39   I think a lot of you would like that [TS]

00:48:40   black one [TS]

00:48:41   I'm not sure how much available for so [TS]

00:48:43   maybe go check it out so anyway I guess [TS]

00:48:45   everybody out here go to Harry's dot-com [TS]

00:48:48   and use the promo code a chai and that [TS]

00:48:51   gives you five dollars off your first [TS]

00:50:05   beat up already and was covered in [TS]

00:50:06   scratches and dents and I really [TS]

00:50:07   struggled to find any mark that I had [TS]

00:50:09   left [TS]

00:50:10   but I thought maybe that one there's [TS]

00:50:11   mine but there was more damage than I [TS]

00:50:13   could have ever done [TS]

00:50:14   Lou ok so i was thinking are you know [TS]

00:50:17   I'm not gonna get done over here so i [TS]

00:50:18   started taking lots of pictures of their [TS]

00:50:20   car like their bumper just show it was [TS]

00:50:21   already really badly damaged and as I [TS]

00:50:24   was doing that the woman whose [TS]

00:50:25   characters came up to me and said why [TS]

00:50:27   you taking photos of my car and I was [TS]

00:50:29   how's the house that are sorry i [TS]

00:50:31   actually just reversed into it and see [TS]

00:50:33   that little tiny mark there that that's [TS]

00:50:35   me amongst the amongst the sort of [TS]

00:50:37   forests of other damage who she was [TS]

00:50:39   great she described her shoulders and [TS]

00:50:41   said oh don't worry about it's nothing [TS]

00:50:43   but then she said I guess my husband [TS]

00:50:45   might be worried so i'll take a number [TS]

00:50:47   just in case and I thought great i know [TS]

00:50:49   what's gonna happen oh yeah if you [TS]

00:50:51   should just hit and run Brady should [TS]

00:50:52   have just hit and run [TS]

00:50:54   well hang on we're coming to that so [TS]

00:50:56   anyway I spent a few days wondering if i [TS]

00:50:59   was going to get a call and i never did [TS]

00:51:01   obviously that was sensible and thought [TS]

00:51:03   well it's fine but funnily enough a few [TS]

00:51:05   days later I was sitting on a bench [TS]

00:51:08   having a sandwich and in front of me [TS]

00:51:10   someone else was reversing trying to get [TS]

00:51:12   into a car space and they banged into a [TS]

00:51:14   car and there were three or four other [TS]

00:51:16   people that saw it happen and this guy [TS]

00:51:18   in the car looked at what he done from [TS]

00:51:20   in the car with his a wife or partner [TS]

00:51:22   looked at what he'd done and then [TS]

00:51:24   thought to hell with this and went [TS]

00:51:27   speeding off so i took daddy's [TS]

00:51:30   license-plate and I wrote it down oh and [TS]

00:51:33   a rope around know and I left on the car [TS]

00:51:35   saying if you're wondering where that [TS]

00:51:37   dent on your car came from it was this [TS]

00:51:39   car was a you know [TS]

00:51:41   aldi whatever and this is the license [TS]

00:51:42   plate and here's my name and here's my [TS]

00:51:44   number in case you need to find out what [TS]

00:51:46   happened because I thought did I do the [TS]

00:51:48   right thing that felt like the right [TS]

00:51:49   thing to do [TS]

00:51:49   you're a rat Brady you're being a rat [TS]

00:51:51   right there well I don't know I'm open [TS]

00:51:55   to that criticism [TS]

00:51:56   I'm open to that was I being a wrap did [TS]

00:51:58   I do the right thing or the wrong thing [TS]

00:51:59   right now [TS]

00:52:00   first of all first prism reason that I [TS]

00:52:03   cannot quite pleased the image of you [TS]

00:52:05   sitting on a bench eating a sandwich [TS]

00:52:08   swinging your feet looking around in the [TS]

00:52:10   park whoever it strikes again is very [TS]

00:52:12   funny little Brady's just sitting here [TS]

00:52:15   doing whatever and then suddenly example [TS]

00:52:17   in this situation in the middle of this [TS]

00:52:20   crime scene [TS]

00:52:21   it was like an episode of the wire yeah [TS]

00:52:24   but meanwhile before you were just [TS]

00:52:25   watching a butterfly or whatever you [TS]

00:52:27   continue to do the right thing or the [TS]

00:52:33   wrong thing [TS]

00:52:34   use the conflicted like the former [TS]

00:52:36   teacher in me wants to say oh right you [TS]

00:52:38   did the right thing Brady right you did [TS]

00:52:40   the right thing is that was that was [TS]

00:52:41   good of you to do but the me in me it [TS]

00:52:46   feels like never get involved with [TS]

00:52:48   anything right I get that I get that [TS]

00:52:50   right that's like just doing the quick [TS]

00:52:53   like risk/reward mental calculation and [TS]

00:52:55   here like what is the best possible [TS]

00:52:57   outcome what is the worst possible [TS]

00:52:59   outcome that the few times in my life [TS]

00:53:02   where I have ever gotten involved in [TS]

00:53:04   things like this even though you're [TS]

00:53:06   being a good Samaritan I always feel [TS]

00:53:08   afterward like I just wish I hadn't said [TS]

00:53:09   anything right i just wish i had never [TS]

00:53:11   gotten involved in this like it was just [TS]

00:53:12   not worth it or you just you get dragged [TS]

00:53:15   into other people's hullabaloos and [TS]

00:53:17   she's like oh god this is this is a huge [TS]

00:53:19   hassle so yeah I would never say like oh [TS]

00:53:22   you did the wrong thing right me saying [TS]

00:53:25   you were rat [TS]

00:53:26   I feel like that's that's just a joke [TS]

00:53:27   yeah but you actually are being a [TS]

00:53:29   responsible citizen but they're totally [TS]

00:53:31   is a feeling of just like in my mind of [TS]

00:53:33   just not getting involved in this kind [TS]

00:53:35   of stuff on the unless you absolutely [TS]

00:53:37   have to but I'm not the least bit [TS]

00:53:40   surprised that you did butBut how are [TS]

00:53:42   you feeling about this situation [TS]

00:53:44   well let me tell you what happened next [TS]

00:53:46   and and you will realize what you are [TS]

00:53:47   both wrong and right day so that night I [TS]

00:53:51   got a fine calm and mr. and I called [TS]

00:53:55   back and this does hold this really old [TS]

00:53:57   man answer the phone and I said are [TS]

00:54:00   returning a call because some message [TS]

00:54:18   be possible Republican might not really [TS]

00:54:21   that's the part that might just be in [TS]

00:54:23   your mind that so surprised [TS]

00:54:25   Brady name the moon after me Harriet [TS]

00:54:27   yeah okay [TS]

00:54:29   I was being praised quite a lot me and [TS]

00:54:32   then this old lady gets on the phone and [TS]

00:54:34   you could only describe her as like the [TS]

00:54:36   clich├ęd sweetest granny sounding lady [TS]

00:54:39   I've ever heard [TS]

00:54:40   who and she told me she told me how they [TS]

00:54:42   just got the cut had been saving for [TS]

00:54:44   years and it was a new car that got in [TS]

00:54:46   two days before and they were so proud [TS]

00:54:48   of it was there it was their pride and [TS]

00:54:50   joy and it was a very new car because [TS]

00:54:52   the people around at the time so that's [TS]

00:54:54   a bread you can they can obviously tell [TS]

00:54:55   by the license plate and how shiny it [TS]

00:54:57   was and this lady was like we've been [TS]

00:54:59   saving for years and was so proud of it [TS]

00:55:01   and we were so upset when we came back [TS]

00:55:02   and I had a dent on only like the second [TS]

00:55:04   day we had and then we saw your note and [TS]

00:55:07   we're so grateful I was like are you [TS]

00:55:10   couldn't have written this better not [TS]

00:55:11   only have I been a good samaritan but I [TS]

00:55:13   mean it could submit and to like a sweet [TS]

00:55:14   old granny with her brand-new car so I [TS]

00:55:17   was feeling pretty good about myself I [TS]

00:55:18   was like oh that's worked out well i had [TS]

00:55:21   a car and I get off scot-free [TS]

00:55:23   haha and it's like something out of [TS]

00:55:27   granite [TS]

00:55:28   so anyway so then she was like we're [TS]

00:55:30   gonna give your details to the insurance [TS]

00:55:32   company who and then a few days later [TS]

00:55:35   I'm i gotta miss Cole are so and so from [TS]

00:55:38   insurance company we understand you [TS]

00:55:40   witnessed an incident would like to get [TS]

00:55:42   all your details and suddenly on the are [TS]

00:55:44   no I'm i am i right now I'm getting [TS]

00:55:47   drawn into like a thing [TS]

00:55:48   yep am I gonna have to give like [TS]

00:55:50   statements here like help how's this [TS]

00:55:52   gonna go have a fun afternoon down at [TS]

00:55:54   the precinct [TS]

00:55:54   yep they're going to force me to listen [TS]

00:55:58   to our however into the episodes in a [TS]

00:56:00   Cell already so anyway and I didn't [TS]

00:56:03   return that call because I think the [TS]

00:56:04   onus is on the insurance company to call [TS]

00:56:06   me back if they want to speak to me they [TS]

00:56:08   haven't gotten me yet so it isn't to be [TS]

00:56:10   continued [TS]

00:56:11   I don't know whether or not you know I'm [TS]

00:56:13   going to get my day in court is going to [TS]

00:56:15   be like you know 12 Angry Men and all [TS]

00:56:17   that sort of stuff or whether or not [TS]

00:56:19   it's just gonna dissipate men at first I [TS]

00:56:22   felt really good about it like a den a [TS]

00:56:24   good thing [TS]

00:56:25   now i'm thinking am I going to get into [TS]

00:56:27   some kind of bureaucratic pain in the [TS]

00:56:29   backside which aisle which you know [TS]

00:56:30   fair enough if I have to do I have to do [TS]

00:56:32   it but what else happens like just my [TS]

00:56:35   name and address go on some statement [TS]

00:56:37   that then goes to the guy who hit the [TS]

00:56:38   car and is he gonna have my details and [TS]

00:56:41   is he gonna think [TS]

00:56:42   rat is gonna send a couple of guys [TS]

00:56:44   around with a crowbar and say you know [TS]

00:56:46   look what you've done you've got me in [TS]

00:56:47   trouble [TS]

00:56:48   what if he's like some criminal on the [TS]

00:56:50   run and the reason he drove away is [TS]

00:56:52   because he's in some monkeys in some [TS]

00:56:53   gang and now everyone else in the game's [TS]

00:56:55   gonna be on to me because I had his [TS]

00:56:56   parole revoked or something like I'm [TS]

00:56:58   totally with you on this one right I'm [TS]

00:57:00   not only i'm not even going to be making [TS]

00:57:02   fun of you at this moment for having [TS]

00:57:03   some kind of crazy thought because it [TS]

00:57:05   seems totally plausible to me that this [TS]

00:57:08   minor incident ends in a breaking bad [TS]

00:57:11   kind of scenario of course your mind but [TS]

00:57:14   this is I'm checking around and you're [TS]

00:57:16   just like this is completely how you [TS]

00:57:18   think this team is totally reasonable to [TS]

00:57:21   me [TS]

00:57:21   i I'm like yeah yeah no idea this it is [TS]

00:57:24   it is it is not unreasonable that [TS]

00:57:27   there's a probability that you get [TS]

00:57:28   involved in some kind of criminal [TS]

00:57:29   element and end up being threatened and [TS]

00:57:32   then have to do a favor for a guy and [TS]

00:57:34   then five years later you know you're [TS]

00:57:37   involved like deeply deeply in the [TS]

00:57:39   underworld all because you tried to help [TS]

00:57:40   an old lady once i know you find the [TS]

00:57:42   word paranoid very emotive what is this [TS]

00:57:45   word for you where you you're able to [TS]

00:57:46   control these thoughts like it's not [TS]

00:57:48   conjuring right I'm not pulling a dragon [TS]

00:57:50   out of a hat here and saying oh you [TS]

00:57:52   might get attacked by a dragon now it's [TS]

00:57:54   just a simple possibility of you don't [TS]

00:57:56   know anything about the other guy in his [TS]

00:57:58   car [TS]

00:57:59   you know it you don't know anything [TS]

00:58:00   about these people yet you're up so the [TS]

00:58:02   possibility that they're involved like [TS]

00:58:03   oh you know the guy is a member of the [TS]

00:58:05   Yakuza right it's like you don't know [TS]

00:58:07   you don't know maybe and so it's [TS]

00:58:09   plausible [TS]

00:58:10   it's not likely but it's it's not [TS]

00:58:12   unlikely that they're you know so yeah [TS]

00:58:16   I'm a little concerned for you can wake [TS]

00:58:17   up with a horse's head tomorrow morning [TS]

00:58:19   yeah maybe that's going to be follow-up [TS]

00:58:20   on the next show [TS]

00:58:21   yeah forgot that you have seen the [TS]

00:58:23   Godfather I haven't seen the Godfather [TS]

00:58:25   but I do I'm aware of that right that's [TS]

00:58:27   one of the things you can't possibly not [TS]

00:58:28   be where away one of these days i will [TS]

00:58:30   see the Godfather but i already know [TS]

00:58:31   about the horse's head Godfather maybe [TS]

00:58:33   it's a good grade maybe after we do our [TS]

00:58:35   chick flick slumber party with him [TS]

00:58:37   followed up with a godfather Islam [TS]

00:58:38   fucking nice little shift in tone yeah [TS]

00:59:02   Internet [TS]

00:59:02   I've been flying and traveling a lot and [TS]

00:59:04   I particularly find that audio books are [TS]

00:59:06   really nice when you are traveling on [TS]

00:59:09   your own [TS]

00:59:10   there's a lot of in-between time where [TS]

00:59:12   you can't really sit down you are in [TS]

00:59:14   transit from one location to another you [TS]

00:59:17   can't really do anything but you need to [TS]

00:59:20   be looking around and paying attention [TS]

00:59:21   to stuff and I think audiobooks are just [TS]

00:59:24   perfect for that environment now if [TS]

00:59:27   you're traveling to America this summer [TS]

00:59:29   like I am i can recommend to you [TS]

00:59:34   with fictional books i don't really like [TS]

00:59:36   to discuss what they are about i think [TS]

00:59:38   it's much better if you just start [TS]

00:59:40   listening to the book without the [TS]

00:59:42   background and just let it explain to [TS]

00:59:45   you what it is and so i'll just say if [TS]

00:59:47   you've read any of neil gaiman stuff [TS]

00:59:50   before you know probably what you're [TS]

00:59:52   getting into and if you've never read a [TS]

00:59:54   book by him before he's a great author [TS]

00:59:56   and this is a good place to start [TS]

01:00:52   the civilized world is la that is where [TS]

01:00:56   i am at this current moment it's part of [TS]

01:00:57   your part of a big road trip you're [TS]

01:00:59   doing your previously in san francisco [TS]

01:01:01   and before that you're over on the east [TS]

01:01:03   coast time in there's so much going on [TS]

01:01:11   that you were there for you sneak into [TS]

01:01:13   WWDC the Apple developers conference but [TS]

01:01:16   you were also there for you there for [TS]

01:01:19   real Akon which is that than to get [TS]

01:01:21   together for the orthopod cousin the [TS]

01:01:24   relay Network which you are part of what [TS]

01:01:25   was the best thing about your san [TS]

01:01:27   francisco trip the one best thing the [TS]

01:01:29   highlight the thing that you still [TS]

01:01:31   remember in two weeks without still [TS]

01:01:33   remember two weeks from now [TS]

01:01:35   well I know you don't tend to remember [TS]

01:01:36   things are very loved that is totally [TS]

01:01:38   true that is totally true and a great [TS]

01:01:40   lawyer you'll be a wholly human within [TS]

01:01:42   four weeks second within the year I'll [TS]

01:01:44   be like practically a new human four [TS]

01:01:46   weeks is a little bit of a short time [TS]

01:01:47   horizon banega is this trip has been a [TS]

01:01:50   crazy trip and it's been it's been hard [TS]

01:01:52   for me to even remember all the things [TS]

01:01:53   that I've been doing but I think perhaps [TS]

01:01:55   the most unexpected stroke interesting [TS]

01:01:58   thing of the trip was that yes i did [TS]

01:02:00   sneak into the actual WWDC where I had [TS]

01:02:04   absolutely no right to be happy you [TS]

01:02:07   think someone else's ticket and that was [TS]

01:02:10   that was a really interesting experience [TS]

01:02:12   to be able to see that [TS]

01:02:13   like the apple conference that you [TS]

01:02:14   always hear about on the outside i was [TS]

01:02:16   able to see it from the inside and sit [TS]

01:02:20   on developer sessions where again I had [TS]

01:02:22   no reason or right to be there but it [TS]

01:02:24   was just that was really interesting and [TS]

01:02:26   unexpected thing that kind of happened [TS]

01:02:28   at the absolute last moment that's going [TS]

01:02:30   to be quite an interesting memory that's [TS]

01:02:31   laid down that i will have for quite a [TS]

01:02:33   long time [TS]

01:02:34   well bearing in mind that your lawyer is [TS]

01:02:37   not present you know how did you get [TS]

01:02:39   into WWE say how did you sneak in [TS]

01:02:41   i'm not i'm not exactly sure that can [TS]

01:02:43   feel hot the show how can happen without [TS]

01:02:44   getting parties unnamed in trouble on [TS]

01:02:47   that 1i but I could take it I know maybe [TS]

01:02:51   you know somebody else's identification [TS]

01:02:53   fell on the floor and maybe I picked up [TS]

01:02:56   maybe that's what happens [TS]

01:02:57   well I'm the last person you should tell [TS]

01:02:59   graduate because you know what a rat I [TS]

01:03:00   am [TS]

01:03:01   yeah i know you are told that right [TS]

01:03:02   you'll be you'll be emailing Tim [TS]

01:03:04   straightaway like listen I just wanted [TS]

01:03:06   to report an incident i'll just leave a [TS]

01:03:08   little piece of paper and his windscreen [TS]

01:03:09   wiper saying look I don't want to you [TS]

01:03:12   know get too involved but you might want [TS]

01:03:13   to look into the cgpgrey character right [TS]

01:03:15   but then was WWDC that fairy tale that [TS]

01:03:21   you dreamed it would be [TS]

01:03:22   the navona of apple products you know [TS]

01:03:25   they don't they don't have the actual [TS]

01:03:26   apple products out there it's a big [TS]

01:03:27   conference it's a big conference is what [TS]

01:03:29   it is and it was not so much people that [TS]

01:03:31   look just like you I imagine [TS]

01:03:33   oh my god i never blend in more than i [TS]

01:03:36   did at WWDC yeah it was it was fantastic [TS]

01:03:38   like no need for camouflage here right I [TS]

01:03:41   think I think I think that perhaps there [TS]

01:03:45   is no conference I could go to where I [TS]

01:03:49   would be more of an anonymous human [TS]

01:03:51   being then WWDC it's like and I think [TS]

01:03:55   nobody will notice me for anything it [TS]

01:03:57   was it was it was just like perfect [TS]

01:04:00   perfect anonymity at WWDC wearing every [TS]

01:04:03   against one picture I was not wearing a [TS]

01:04:05   reputed Scott was anyone else wearing [TS]

01:04:07   what did you see any hello Internet [TS]

01:04:09   shirts they're actually didn't see any [TS]

01:04:10   hello internet stuff although it did see [TS]

01:04:12   a couple CGP grey shirts there but I [TS]

01:04:15   didn't say I didn't see any hello [TS]

01:04:16   Internet ones I Brady there were no [TS]

01:04:17   reunion swamp n rice wrap shirts are [TS]

01:04:21   sure it's visible [TS]

01:04:22   well i know that there was a mighty [TS]

01:04:24   blacks temptation in the keynote [TS]

01:04:25   oh yeah how do you know that [TS]

01:04:26   because I saw her photo someone wearing [TS]

01:04:28   1i did you I missed that i missed that [TS]

01:04:30   say my operation Zeus has contacts [TS]

01:04:33   everywhere I know everything that's [TS]

01:04:35   going on his operation Zeus a good name [TS]

01:04:37   for a spy program that seems like a [TS]

01:04:39   terrible code name for a spy program you [TS]

01:04:41   need a sneaky name right it needs to be [TS]

01:04:42   like operation slytherin or something [TS]

01:04:44   like that's a better name for a spy [TS]

01:04:45   program [TS]

01:04:46   ok I'll come back to that I want to [TS]

01:04:48   think of a better than this relay Conway [TS]

01:04:52   you where all the podcasts got together [TS]

01:04:54   and you hung out with people and also i [TS]

01:04:55   got to make people who listen to the [TS]

01:04:57   podcast [TS]

01:04:58   did you enjoy making strangest the thing [TS]

01:05:00   that I always need to preface this with [TS]

01:05:01   is with meeting strangers i have much [TS]

01:05:03   better meeting strangers when I am [TS]

01:05:05   prepared to meet strangers and so this [TS]

01:05:08   was one of those things where I knew I [TS]

01:05:11   was gonna go to an event and the bigger [TS]

01:05:14   scale of it I also knew like I'm going [TS]

01:05:16   to be in san francisco for a week I'm [TS]

01:05:18   going to be hanging out in and around [TS]

01:05:20   the kind of WWDC crowd which is probably [TS]

01:05:24   much more likely to recognize me then [TS]

01:05:26   like a random sampling the population [TS]

01:05:28   which turned out to be totally true and [TS]

01:05:30   so being aware of that in advance I [TS]

01:05:33   could kind of mentally prepare for that [TS]

01:05:35   and that's the whole week I felt a bit [TS]

01:05:37   like I felt a bit like I was on duty in [TS]

01:05:40   a sense I was available for people to [TS]

01:05:42   come up and say hi in a bunch of [TS]

01:05:43   situations i was even I I felt like my [TS]

01:05:45   unofficial name tag was I was wearing my [TS]

01:05:48   CGP grey hoodie and so yeah when people [TS]

01:05:51   came up and they said hello and because [TS]

01:05:53   i was prepared for it was it was totally [TS]

01:05:55   fine like i am sure I am ready to say hi [TS]

01:05:57   to people and under those circumstances [TS]

01:05:59   i can i can be i think i can come off as [TS]

01:06:02   a regular normal person to interact with [TS]

01:06:05   so it was good because it was prepared [TS]

01:06:07   but if I had been recognized and come up [TS]

01:06:10   to that many times just in a normal week [TS]

01:06:13   in London I would not be taking very [TS]

01:06:14   well with that like if they would not go [TS]

01:06:16   as smoothly if people just randomly came [TS]

01:06:18   up to me on the street and said hello in [TS]

01:06:19   moments when I was not expecting it [TS]

01:06:22   it would be a sign you're doing [TS]

01:06:23   awesomely well yeah yeah but then if you [TS]

01:06:25   like to well right and like I need to [TS]

01:06:27   pull back on my youtube career I [TS]

01:06:29   honestly think if people started [TS]

01:06:30   recognizing me as frequently as they did [TS]

01:06:32   in that week I would make fewer videos [TS]

01:06:34   and podcasts like immediately records [TS]

01:06:35   like I have to pull back i have to pull [TS]

01:06:37   back this is not the life [TS]

01:06:38   I want to live I'm not a vlogger it [TS]

01:06:40   looks and sounds like it was quite good [TS]

01:06:42   fun time now [TS]

01:06:44   San Francisco is you know you'll see [TS]

01:06:46   your sexy your second spiritual city [TS]

01:06:48   till after London you've made it clear [TS]

01:06:50   that if London gets wiped off the face [TS]

01:06:52   of the earth in San Francisco's you back [TS]

01:06:54   out well how'd you find a week in San [TS]

01:06:56   Francisco [TS]

01:06:56   well I'm not exactly sure i phrase it [TS]

01:06:58   that way but I i will say that i kept [TS]

01:07:02   thinking about how whatever was a couple [TS]

01:07:04   podcast ago we were discussing cities [TS]

01:07:06   and how cities go when how is san [TS]

01:07:08   francisco would be on my list of [TS]

01:07:09   possible places to live in the united [TS]

01:07:10   states where I to move back to the [TS]

01:07:12   United States but I kept thinking about [TS]

01:07:15   those words those words of mine I felt [TS]

01:07:17   like they were haunting me for the [TS]

01:07:18   entire time I was in San Francisco [TS]

01:07:20   because I don't know how to say this in [TS]

01:07:22   a nice way but i have never come across [TS]

01:07:25   a higher density of just random crazy [TS]

01:07:32   street people anywhere in the world then [TS]

01:07:36   in San Francisco like San Francisco is [TS]

01:07:39   where crazy people are professional [TS]

01:07:43   about their crazy it was absolutely [TS]

01:07:45   unbelievable to me i don't know if [TS]

01:07:48   you've seen this when you were there but [TS]

01:07:50   the amount of crazy people on the [TS]

01:07:52   streets was a was a constant topic of [TS]

01:07:55   conversation among everybody there [TS]

01:07:57   because if you left the hotel and walked [TS]

01:08:00   in any direction it honestly felt like [TS]

01:08:02   it was the walking dead in some places [TS]

01:08:04   like you you would turn down a street [TS]

01:08:06   and you would feel like you were in some [TS]

01:08:08   kind of post-apocalyptic wasteland with [TS]

01:08:10   zombies wandering around it was striking [TS]

01:08:13   it was really striking and very [TS]

01:08:15   unexpected in a way have you seen that [TS]

01:08:18   at all when you're there or you would [TS]

01:08:19   you really like in a different part of [TS]

01:08:20   the city [TS]

01:08:21   well I mean I'm and the ivory Berkeley [TS]

01:08:23   which also has its share of it's got [TS]

01:08:25   quite a hippie sort of eccentric [TS]

01:08:26   reputation but over the city and so far [TS]

01:08:30   i do go [TS]

01:08:31   what about us see bit of a button and I [TS]

01:08:34   realized that it has it does have a [TS]

01:08:36   quite interesting you know more [TS]

01:08:37   alternative population and also attracts [TS]

01:08:39   a lot of people who have been down on [TS]

01:08:42   their luck faith for some reason a lot [TS]

01:08:44   of those people tend to flock to San [TS]

01:08:45   Francisco [TS]

01:08:46   I don't know why maybe because the [TS]

01:08:47   climate's not as good as it is [TS]

01:08:49   further south but that seems to be a [TS]

01:08:51   real mecca for people who were sort of [TS]

01:08:53   you know looking for a new start but [TS]

01:08:56   maybe I'm just a bit more immune to it [TS]

01:08:59   like what are some of the things you saw [TS]

01:09:00   that stuck with you i mean here's the [TS]

01:09:02   thing i had this feeling of I live in [TS]

01:09:05   London a city that is not a stranger to [TS]

01:09:08   crazy people on the street and I had [TS]

01:09:11   just two weeks before going to san [TS]

01:09:13   francisco i had spent some time in New [TS]

01:09:14   York which is the city that I spent some [TS]

01:09:16   time in growing up and have been too [TS]

01:09:19   frequently and there again you see you [TS]

01:09:21   know like homeless people on the streets [TS]

01:09:22   and just like lunatics and anybody who [TS]

01:09:24   lives in a city at anybody who lives in [TS]

01:09:27   the city you develop this kind of crazy [TS]

01:09:29   radar we're here walking down the street [TS]

01:09:31   and you learn to identify people coming [TS]

01:09:33   in the other direction that you just you [TS]

01:09:37   identify them in your vision and you [TS]

01:09:38   feel like I'm gonna walk as far away [TS]

01:09:40   from this person as I can while still [TS]

01:09:42   being on the same side walk together [TS]

01:09:44   right like you just give this person [TS]

01:09:45   some space and I always imagine that if [TS]

01:09:48   you were flying a drone overhead in a [TS]

01:09:50   city like New York or any city in the [TS]

01:09:52   world you could very easily use like a [TS]

01:09:54   computer algorithm to identify the [TS]

01:09:56   crazies because they they would have [TS]

01:09:57   like this little periphery around them [TS]

01:09:59   like an extra space where people just [TS]

01:10:01   don't go in in the same way that I [TS]

01:10:03   imagine flying a drone above a police [TS]

01:10:05   car on the highway is going to be [TS]

01:10:07   surrounded by a bubble of people going [TS]

01:10:08   exactly but not faster than the speed [TS]

01:10:10   limit right boys outside the visual [TS]

01:10:12   range of that police officer everybody's [TS]

01:10:14   going faster [TS]

01:10:15   yeah I have this like I'm aware of crazy [TS]

01:10:17   people but in San Francisco the density [TS]

01:10:20   was so high it was startling [TS]

01:10:24   so one morning I went out for a walk I [TS]

01:10:25   just sort of went out and has you do [TS]

01:10:27   like I'm just going for a walk mr. like [TS]

01:10:29   collecting my thoughts and I wasn't [TS]

01:10:30   paying any attention i'm just walking [TS]

01:10:31   down some streets randomly and at one [TS]

01:10:34   point I suddenly realized like oh I [TS]

01:10:35   don't know where I am but I've just [TS]

01:10:37   gotten into like a terrible part of town [TS]

01:10:39   and i looked around and i did the actual [TS]

01:10:42   count of there were 25 people in my [TS]

01:10:47   field Division and every single one of [TS]

01:10:50   those 25 people my brain was recognizing [TS]

01:10:52   as a threat like this person is a [TS]

01:10:54   potential threat this person is a [TS]

01:10:55   potential threat this person is a [TS]

01:10:56   percent potential threat this is just [TS]

01:10:58   not my experience even in the worst [TS]

01:11:00   parts of London that you end up on a [TS]

01:11:02   street that real [TS]

01:11:03   really felt like the city had just [TS]

01:11:05   officially decided we are abandoning [TS]

01:11:07   this street like we're just we're just [TS]

01:11:10   leaving it to the zombies right they can [TS]

01:11:11   just have it we're not even going to go [TS]

01:11:13   down there I just kept finding myself to [TS]

01:11:16   this ridiculous amount like mentally [TS]

01:11:19   sizing up if I could take a guy on the [TS]

01:11:22   street like if it came to that because [TS]

01:11:23   you just like crazy people walking up [TS]

01:11:25   and like okay could I take this guy in a [TS]

01:11:27   fight if an absolutely came to it like [TS]

01:11:28   he looks like a lunatic many passes by [TS]

01:11:31   like here comes up somebody else's like [TS]

01:11:32   okay what about this guy like you know [TS]

01:11:33   what's what's the situation here [TS]

01:11:35   it was just very very startling and and [TS]

01:11:38   surprising and I mean apparently talking [TS]

01:11:41   to some of the locals i happen to be [TS]

01:11:42   staying in literally the worst part of [TS]

01:11:44   san francisco so I was at like ground [TS]

01:11:47   zero for this sort of thing but it was [TS]

01:11:49   yeah it was just really striking and [TS]

01:11:52   surprising and there were just so many [TS]

01:11:53   things that I saw that like I cannot [TS]

01:11:55   believe I am seeing this like I can't [TS]

01:11:57   believe that this is America [TS]

01:11:59   I want an example the most eggs the most [TS]

01:12:01   extreme example was on the the [TS]

01:12:02   second-to-last day was I was just again [TS]

01:12:05   just walking out to get some supplies [TS]

01:12:07   and walking down the street I saw [TS]

01:12:09   someone just basically step into the [TS]

01:12:13   road drop their pants and take it the [TS]

01:12:15   middle of the street like not not [TS]

01:12:18   against the street corner anything right [TS]

01:12:20   it's not like you know not any kind of [TS]

01:12:23   human privacy just like I know you know [TS]

01:12:25   where i should I in the street right [TS]

01:12:26   that's what I do this like oh ok well [TS]

01:12:28   that's interesting to be like adopt an [TS]

01:12:31   appropriate position besides the fact [TS]

01:12:33   that it's great like they didn't just [TS]

01:12:34   like stay standing up to that you know [TS]

01:12:36   how they like they just drop their pants [TS]

01:12:37   and squat right and I go okay right well [TS]

01:12:40   you know that's the thing that's a thing [TS]

01:12:42   to say thankyou san francisco that's [TS]

01:12:43   lovely [TS]

01:12:44   and that would have been a good snapchat [TS]

01:12:45   ok so the other the other small thing [TS]

01:12:52   which was just just like a thing that I [TS]

01:12:54   was aware of but ok well people here [TS]

01:12:57   homeless people seem to enjoy sleeping [TS]

01:13:00   across the sidewalk right not against a [TS]

01:13:04   wall or anything but just just kind of [TS]

01:13:07   laying down in the middle of the [TS]

01:13:08   sidewalk in absolutely everybody's way [TS]

01:13:10   and then this is where they're going to [TS]

01:13:11   sleep and this is like oh not just one [TS]

01:13:13   person this is a bunch of people and [TS]

01:13:15   that kind of thing is like okay [TS]

01:13:16   your kind of extra crazy to be doing [TS]

01:13:18   this right like if you're obviously not [TS]

01:13:20   in a good situation but then also [TS]

01:13:22   deciding you're going to sleep in a [TS]

01:13:23   place where if you moved three feet in [TS]

01:13:27   one direction you would be less likely [TS]

01:13:29   to be stepped on but you're feeling is [TS]

01:13:30   like at the hell with it right I'm just [TS]

01:13:32   gonna sleep here in the middle like oh [TS]

01:13:33   ok well this is a frequent occurrence is [TS]

01:13:37   diverting around someone who's just [TS]

01:13:38   sleeping in the middle of the street and [TS]

01:13:41   for the entirety of my trip I kept [TS]

01:13:43   thinking something about this is just [TS]

01:13:47   different than other places i have been [TS]

01:13:50   and when I finally pinned down on is [TS]

01:13:53   realizing okay well you walk around in a [TS]

01:13:55   city and write you often smell you're in [TS]

01:13:59   wherever you're walking it's like okay [TS]

01:14:01   well this is like not a nice area [TS]

01:14:03   because it smells like pee right but the [TS]

01:14:05   number of places in san francisco where [TS]

01:14:07   I was walking around and it didn't smell [TS]

01:14:08   like pee it smells like death where the [TS]

01:14:11   feeling was I don't even know what is [TS]

01:14:13   occurring here but dear god i don't want [TS]

01:14:15   to know what's occurring here was so [TS]

01:14:17   many places i don't know it was just [TS]

01:14:19   what it just it was so striking and such [TS]

01:14:23   a weird experience especially [TS]

01:14:26   considering that like a number of times [TS]

01:14:29   when i was walking from the hotel to [TS]

01:14:30   some other place like where was i [TS]

01:14:32   walking too i was walking to the [TS]

01:14:34   interior of an ultra modern [TS]

01:14:35   air-conditioned brand new office of a [TS]

01:14:38   multimillion-dollar tech company that [TS]

01:14:41   was the super weird experience of this [TS]

01:14:43   this kind of out on the streets it is [TS]

01:14:46   the Living Dead and then inside it is a [TS]

01:14:49   look at where magic company building the [TS]

01:14:51   future [TS]

01:14:52   it was just strange how many of these [TS]

01:14:54   offices i was bc i would be standing [TS]

01:14:56   outside of and feel like man I can't [TS]

01:14:59   wait to get inside and be safe and then [TS]

01:15:01   on the inside it was like oh we live in [TS]

01:15:02   the year 3000 here it was very very [TS]

01:15:05   strange it was very weird [TS]

01:15:06   there are a lot of places in san [TS]

01:15:07   francisco that are the smell like way or [TS]

01:15:10   wait [TS]

01:15:10   yeah but I it but i found myself praying [TS]

01:15:13   for the weed smell like homeboy wishes [TS]

01:15:16   just smelling like weed here right that [TS]

01:15:18   would that would be a tremendous relief [TS]

01:15:21   that would be a tremendous relief i [TS]

01:15:23   think in the San Francisco seems to be [TS]

01:15:24   specializing in venture capital and tech [TS]

01:15:26   companies but it also seems to be [TS]

01:15:28   specializing [TS]

01:15:29   in just like a kind of aggressive [TS]

01:15:33   craziness and i keep saying craziness as [TS]

01:15:36   opposed to just homelessness because [TS]

01:15:38   while obviously a large number of these [TS]

01:15:40   people were homeless the thing i said [TS]

01:15:42   before about how like you identify in [TS]

01:15:44   your mind people is being threats [TS]

01:15:46   it's like you're the monkey in the [TS]

01:15:47   beginning of lawnmower man it's like [TS]

01:15:48   threat threat threat righties you see [TS]

01:15:50   them on the streets so many people who [TS]

01:15:52   like obviously where people going [TS]

01:15:54   somewhere and who had some job to get to [TS]

01:15:56   we're still setting off this little [TS]

01:15:58   internal trigger in my mind I was like [TS]

01:16:00   okay san francisco you specialize in [TS]

01:16:02   craziness in a way that is deeply [TS]

01:16:05   unexpected to me [TS]

01:16:07   well i'm in part of that maybe means [TS]

01:16:09   when you're in san francisco you need to [TS]

01:16:11   recalibrate your crater but also it [TS]

01:16:15   probably just have more crazy people [TS]

01:16:17   you're definitely right because the [TS]

01:16:18   number of actual physical altercations [TS]

01:16:20   that I got into 10 in my time there and [TS]

01:16:23   the number that i was prepared for was [TS]

01:16:24   probably in the low hundreds it's turned [TS]

01:16:29   up a little bit high [TS]

01:16:30   I mean it was I really did at one point [TS]

01:16:31   I found myself again like an idiot going [TS]

01:16:33   for this early-morning walk and I was [TS]

01:16:35   like oh what a lovely parked in a min [TS]

01:16:36   and then suddenly I kind of again like [TS]

01:16:38   reassess the situation of everyone [TS]

01:16:40   around me and I felt myself thinking [TS]

01:16:41   like I wish I had a knife right now it's [TS]

01:16:43   like I would feel way better if I had a [TS]

01:16:44   knife you know stuffed into the back of [TS]

01:16:46   my jeans at this moment so yes my [TS]

01:16:48   craydar might have been turned up a [TS]

01:16:51   little high but yes the the number was [TS]

01:16:54   was still quite alarming and I don't [TS]

01:16:57   know it's one of those things this is [TS]

01:16:58   again we can we could get into the [TS]

01:17:00   radian great ride to solve all the [TS]

01:17:02   problems of the world section of the [TS]

01:17:03   podcast but i also just found myself [TS]

01:17:06   constantly thinking about how this is [TS]

01:17:09   such a difficult problem to try to solve [TS]

01:17:13   and thinking about like you know if i [TS]

01:17:15   was suddenly the mayor of San Francisco [TS]

01:17:17   tomorrow like what could you practically [TS]

01:17:19   try to do to make this better and it's [TS]

01:17:23   very difficult to think of all around [TS]

01:17:28   politically feasible solutions to [TS]

01:17:31   something like this like it's just it's [TS]

01:17:33   just not an easy thing to think about is [TS]

01:17:34   your overall impression of San Francisco [TS]

01:17:36   moved because last time it Katie East I [TS]

01:17:39   got the impression that if you were [TS]

01:17:40   gonna live in London San Francisco would [TS]

01:17:42   be an option [TS]

01:17:43   we do you still feel that way but has it [TS]

01:17:45   changed your view of the city in terms [TS]

01:17:46   of desirability or is it just a sort of [TS]

01:17:49   you know colored a little bit that's an [TS]

01:17:51   interesting question to ask because I [TS]

01:17:53   feel both ways about this that this city [TS]

01:17:57   itself in terms of a place to walk [TS]

01:18:01   around and a physical place that is a [TS]

01:18:05   city i find myself liking much much much [TS]

01:18:09   less then I was thinking that I might [TS]

01:18:12   and I had been in San Francisco before [TS]

01:18:14   but this was years ago and very very [TS]

01:18:16   briefly like I had not spent to a [TS]

01:18:18   serious amount of time in San Francisco [TS]

01:18:20   so that the city i found like annoying [TS]

01:18:24   in a bunch of ways to get at least in no [TS]

01:18:26   small part because it's just like well I [TS]

01:18:28   don't like that it's so hot I don't like [TS]

01:18:29   that it's so hilly I don't like that my [TS]

01:18:31   threat radar is being set off so [TS]

01:18:33   constantly like these are a bunch of [TS]

01:18:34   things that I don't like about the city [TS]

01:18:36   but i can just double down on the thing [TS]

01:18:40   that I was saying is attractive about [TS]

01:18:42   San Francisco is that I think there is [TS]

01:18:45   perhaps nowhere in the world that has a [TS]

01:18:48   higher density of interesting people [TS]

01:18:51   working on interesting problems and that [TS]

01:18:54   is the attractive part of the city to me [TS]

01:18:56   and I feel like I really got to [TS]

01:18:58   experience a full week of this in my [TS]

01:19:02   travels of every day all day was meeting [TS]

01:19:06   with and talking to various people who [TS]

01:19:09   are working on various projects all of [TS]

01:19:11   which are interesting and people are [TS]

01:19:13   working very hard on solving challenging [TS]

01:19:16   technical problems and I think like like [TS]

01:19:19   that is the attractiveness of the city [TS]

01:19:23   is just this high density of smart [TS]

01:19:26   interesting people solving interesting [TS]

01:19:28   problems so i still find that a very [TS]

01:19:32   attractive thing but now I just feel [TS]

01:19:34   like oh it's really unfortunate that [TS]

01:19:36   it's in san francisco over here like hey [TS]

01:19:38   why doesn't everybody just can we just [TS]

01:19:39   relocate everybody to New York maybe we [TS]

01:19:41   could do that maybe that would be better [TS]

01:19:43   the other thing that's worth talking [TS]

01:19:44   about then and it's worth talking about [TS]

01:19:46   now because as we're recording it hasn't [TS]

01:19:49   happened yet really but it will have [TS]

01:19:51   happened by the time this is released [TS]

01:19:52   i'm guessing is your at VidCon [TS]

01:19:55   I'm sure seems like something i didn't [TS]

01:19:57   think you'd ever go to but there you go [TS]

01:19:58   you're there how you feeling about that [TS]

01:20:00   what's going on it [TS]

01:20:02   yes yes why you're nothing i'm laughing [TS]

01:20:06   because even I find it funny that i'm at [TS]

01:20:07   VidCon because it feels to me like why [TS]

01:20:10   am I at VidCon why am I here because [TS]

01:20:12   you're a sellout [TS]

01:20:13   well I mean I the funny thing is and [TS]

01:20:18   this is one of it again like we will [TS]

01:20:19   have to see what happens but i am at [TS]

01:20:21   VidCon in the most unofficial capacity [TS]

01:20:24   ever like I'm not doing any [TS]

01:20:26   presentations I'm not doing any panels [TS]

01:20:29   on that I'm not doing anything [TS]

01:20:30   yeah yeah I bet you to do you think [TS]

01:20:32   you're not I bet you get dragged into a [TS]

01:20:34   couple we would you want to put some [TS]

01:20:35   money on the table right now because I [TS]

01:20:37   will be willing to bet you anything that [TS]

01:20:39   I don't do any panels while I'm here [TS]

01:20:41   how much do you wanna bet Brady hundred [TS]

01:20:43   bucks you want to bet a hundred bucks [TS]

01:20:44   okay i'll bet you a hundred bucks so I [TS]

01:20:46   have to say it again I'm not doing any [TS]

01:20:47   presentations I'm not doing any panels [TS]

01:20:49   while I'm here yeah I feel almost like i [TS]

01:20:52   am at VidCon as a tourist like i am here [TS]

01:20:57   because this event is such a huge item [TS]

01:21:01   on the calendar of everyone who who [TS]

01:21:04   works at YouTube and I've never been and [TS]

01:21:07   when I was planning what was going to [TS]

01:21:10   happen this summer the fact that WWDC [TS]

01:21:14   and relay con were happening so close to [TS]

01:21:18   when VidCon was happening and I so hate [TS]

01:21:24   travel that I like to try to group [TS]

01:21:25   everything in big blocks that it almost [TS]

01:21:28   seemed crazy to me not to try to go down [TS]

01:21:31   to VidCon since it would be right after [TS]

01:21:33   because like I'm never gonna fly out to [TS]

01:21:35   California just for this kind of thing [TS]

01:21:37   probably but if i can combine two events [TS]

01:21:40   then suddenly my brain likes it way [TS]

01:21:41   better so i did get a ticket to VidCon [TS]

01:21:45   and i am down here now and I am [TS]

01:21:48   interested to see what this thing is [TS]

01:21:52   really like but the funny thing is just [TS]

01:21:54   before we recorded this podcast i went [TS]

01:21:58   right when it opens to get my tickets my [TS]

01:22:01   I could go through my registration thing [TS]

01:22:03   because I didn't want to get stuck in [TS]

01:22:05   like an enormous line with tons of [TS]

01:22:06   people just as with the WWDC where I [TS]

01:22:08   said like okay [TS]

01:22:08   Here I am just an anonymous person right [TS]

01:22:11   i just i totally blend in no one's gonna [TS]

01:22:12   notice me even registering for the [TS]

01:22:14   ticket straight away at the VidCon like [TS]

01:22:17   oh god I am so not the median person at [TS]

01:22:20   VidCon right like looking around in the [TS]

01:22:22   room it's like okay there's already 500 [TS]

01:22:24   people here waiting to get tickets and [TS]

01:22:26   the median human is a fourteen-year-old [TS]

01:22:29   girl and I just I feel like way out of [TS]

01:22:33   place on this line getting my ticket for [TS]

01:22:35   VidCon so that that is least my one [TS]

01:22:37   little initial experience with what is [TS]

01:22:39   like so far [TS]

01:22:40   mara well I look forward to a more full [TS]

01:22:43   briefing when the time comes [TS]

01:22:45   are you feeling like dread or I feeling [TS]

01:22:48   like an excitement or what would be the [TS]

01:22:50   which is winning this sort of arm [TS]

01:22:51   wrestle between your kind of curiosity [TS]

01:22:53   in your fear as with all these things [TS]

01:22:56   like my feeling is interest right [TS]

01:22:58   interest is this human emotion that [TS]

01:23:00   exists sometimes for some topics and [TS]

01:23:03   this is this is my feeling now is I am [TS]

01:23:05   interested to see what this is like i [TS]

01:23:08   have seen videos of it on youtube I have [TS]

01:23:11   heard many people talk about it but i [TS]

01:23:13   have had no first-hand experience of it [TS]

01:23:15   so i am interested to see how it goes [TS]

01:23:19   but i have no fear or dread because i [TS]

01:23:22   have no responsibilities while I'm here [TS]

01:23:24   I'm just a tourist i'm not doing [TS]

01:23:26   anything except collecting your hundred [TS]

01:23:28   dollars at a later point in time [TS]
