00:01:11.260 –> 00:01:15.480
Brandon: He has not been arrested yet. Will he do who knows we don’t know

00:01:15.480 –> 00:01:20.920
Brandon: But we’ll be we’ll see I don’t like I said, I’m curious to see if he’s gonna get arrested or not

00:01:20.920 –> 00:01:22.920
Brandon: I think if he does it will

00:01:23.560 –> 00:01:31.080
Brandon: basically just I mean all it’s gonna do is is is I’ve been saying this from the beginning is if he does get

00:01:31.080 –> 00:01:36.920
Brandon: Arrested all it’s going to do is is just make his people. I mean care about him more

00:01:36.920 –> 00:01:39.320
Brandon: He wants to get walked out in handcuffs

00:01:39.320 –> 00:01:44.760
Brandon: He wants the I mean all this stuff already that we’ve seen the last couple of last couple of weeks

00:01:44.760 –> 00:01:48.420
Brandon: All it’s done is the last week or so. All it’s done is improve his poll numbers

00:01:48.420 –> 00:01:51.600
Brandon: I mean, he’s already headed to Santa’s in the polls now because of this

00:01:51.600 –> 00:01:54.480
Brandon: I mean he was ahead already, but now he’s even more ahead

00:01:54.480 –> 00:01:56.320
Brandon: I mean, I just think that you know

00:01:56.320 –> 00:02:01.300
Brandon: I mean if I just if he did if they if he walks them and he does the walk of shame

00:02:01.300 –> 00:02:05.400
Brandon: It’s just gonna it’s just gonna help his his numbers out even more man

00:02:05.400 –> 00:02:09.960
Brandon: I mean, I think this whole situation is just it’s just you know

00:02:09.960 –> 00:02:16.520
Brandon: It’s just gonna help and now the now that my wife has decided that during the middle of my life to crash it dropping the cat

00:02:16.520 –> 00:02:20.940
Brandon: All he doesn’t Oh God, he’s gonna step and he’s gonna crash the life. She’s not when we adopted him

00:02:20.940 –> 00:02:26.940
Brandon: We’re a big pet family. We rescue he is a he is our very he is very fat and overweight

00:02:26.940 –> 00:02:29.100
Brandon: We’ve got a couple of cats. You’ve got dogs cats

00:02:29.100 –> 00:02:34.020
Brandon: This is a bit he’s gonna go find a spot to hide because they’re not hide but lay some with the king of the house

00:02:34.020 –> 00:02:38.900
Brandon: You see this is why I can’t do a live stuff that happens. But oh look the likes went up now. Thank you, honey

00:02:38.900 –> 00:02:43.940
Brandon: My people I’ve already gotten two likes now in the stream because you see the cat help everybody loves cats

00:02:43.940 –> 00:02:46.020
Brandon: I mean that you can’t go wrong with a good cat

00:02:46.060 –> 00:02:51.040
Brandon: But like I said this week in the news, like I said Trump go like it says holding with Trump

00:02:51.040 –> 00:02:53.700
Brandon: He posted he was in the New York New York Post today

00:02:53.700 –> 00:03:00.780
Brandon: He posted a photo with with a bat saying that if I think they’re saying if he’s saying if something happens to him if he gets

00:03:00.780 –> 00:03:02.640
Brandon: Arrested they’re risking stuff. I just think this whole thing

00:03:02.640 –> 00:03:07.540
Brandon: I mean, I think they say even said a lot of a lot of news the stat the statute of limitations is over

00:03:07.540 –> 00:03:11.900
Brandon: It was I think it’s like four years and it’s been seven now. So or six

00:03:11.900 –> 00:03:16.700
Brandon: I don’t even think the statute of limitations can even be done anymore. I’m curious to see

00:03:16.700 –> 00:03:20.920
Brandon: What’s gonna happen with with that going forward?

00:03:20.920 –> 00:03:24.380
Brandon: I mean if he does get arrested which I don’t think he’s gonna do but if he does

00:03:24.380 –> 00:03:31.960
Brandon: Secret Service gonna have a I mean a real nightmare on the hands only because I mean to secure the president at a out of it

00:03:31.960 –> 00:03:38.260
Brandon: You know and a jail like that that’s gonna be I mean some tall order for the Secret Service. I seriously

00:03:38.460 –> 00:03:42.180
Brandon: I sure if they did they would have to shut them like a whole wing of

00:03:42.180 –> 00:03:47.580
Brandon: I mean of they’re gonna have to shut them like a whole wing of prisoners on my that because I mean what what what?

00:03:47.580 –> 00:03:52.300
Brandon: How are you gonna secure the the president? I just I just don’t see it happening

00:03:52.300 –> 00:03:55.140
Brandon: I just I can’t how are you gonna how are you gonna secure?

00:03:55.140 –> 00:03:55.700
Brandon: I mean

00:03:55.700 –> 00:04:00.300
Brandon: They’re gonna have to be he’s got to be in his own private little part of the jail or something like that if they even do

00:04:00.300 –> 00:04:01.940
Brandon: Indict him which I doubt they will

00:04:01.940 –> 00:04:07.300
Brandon: But I know people have been lining up at Mira Lago all week this week and support of him and good for them

00:04:07.300 –> 00:04:09.220
Brandon: I mean if that’s their guy that’s their candidate

00:04:09.220 –> 00:04:13.660
Brandon: But I just I mean, I mean the more they the more they they go after him

00:04:13.660 –> 00:04:15.840
Brandon: Just the more support he’s gonna get and the more

00:04:15.840 –> 00:04:18.660
Brandon: Popular he’s gonna get I mean the polls have shown it

00:04:18.660 –> 00:04:20.100
Brandon: so I just I mean

00:04:20.100 –> 00:04:24.740
Brandon: I think it’s really foolish if I think it’s foolish if they are trying to if they if if

00:04:24.740 –> 00:04:31.420
Brandon: New York is trying to bury him all this is gonna do is make him mutter. So I just think it’s really ridiculous

00:04:31.420 –> 00:04:35.200
Brandon: I think in the sense of these politicians have no idea what they’re doing

00:04:35.200 –> 00:04:39.360
Brandon: They think that they slander him all over the TV that people will just not fuck

00:04:39.360 –> 00:04:43.660
Brandon: He’s proven over and over and over again. That doesn’t matter throw whatever you want at me

00:04:43.660 –> 00:04:49.260
Brandon: I’m gonna be fine and he has been I mean he knows how to play the media better than the media knows

00:04:49.260 –> 00:04:52.780
Brandon: He’s proven it over and over again. I don’t care if you like him. I don’t care if you hate him

00:04:52.780 –> 00:04:56.980
Brandon: He knows what he’s doing when it comes to mandating the media. He’s done it

00:04:56.980 –> 00:05:03.500
Brandon: So well, you know the the the Democrats and all these people in Washington and all the news media think that he’s like any other

00:05:03.500 –> 00:05:07.100
Brandon: Politician you just put bad press out there and it’s gonna ruin his reputation

00:05:07.100 –> 00:05:11.300
Brandon: It just shows the more they throw at him the better his poll number gets

00:05:11.300 –> 00:05:17.560
Brandon: I mean, that’s just the way he is and they can’t do anything about it. They don’t like it. They’re scared

00:05:17.560 –> 00:05:20.260
Brandon: They’re scared of them. They’re trying everything they can to

00:05:20.260 –> 00:05:21.960
Brandon: You know

00:05:21.960 –> 00:05:26.600
Brandon: It’s a hurt him and it’s not doing anything because he’s he knows how to play the media

00:05:26.600 –> 00:05:30.080
Brandon: So but I noticed he’s been keeping everything on truth social

00:05:30.080 –> 00:05:35.860
Brandon: He has not he’s been very good about keeping everything on true social. He hasn’t been throwing anything on Twitter or anything like that

00:05:35.860 –> 00:05:39.080
Brandon: I think he’s using this to try to build his own his platform up because I know they said

00:05:39.080 –> 00:05:44.380
Brandon: True social as well. So a big spike in view in users and stuff like that over this whole thing

00:05:44.380 –> 00:05:48.780
Brandon: He’s he’s gonna use all this publicity to hype up his own stuff and there’s nothing wrong with that

00:05:48.780 –> 00:05:52.180
Brandon: I mean if they’re hey if they’re giving him all the free press, you know, he’s gonna take it

00:05:52.180 –> 00:05:56.480
Brandon: That’s the person he is and and you know what? I mean, I’m kind of good for you

00:05:56.480 –> 00:06:02.480
Brandon: He’s smart enough using it. Like I said people have been lining up at Murrah Haga all week waving flags and Trump supports

00:06:02.480 –> 00:06:08.300
Brandon: Oh, so I mean good, you know this whole thing. It’s just it’s so ridiculous and it’s not gonna change anything

00:06:08.300 –> 00:06:09.600
Brandon: He’s still gonna do I mean come on

00:06:09.600 –> 00:06:12.740
Brandon: He’s posted a picture of himself with a baseball pad today saying that

00:06:12.740 –> 00:06:17.760
Brandon: And and and you know that if something they arrest him that it’s just gonna make him do

00:06:17.760 –> 00:06:22.520
Brandon: I’m 110 percent the more they bash him the more he’s just gonna be more popular

00:06:22.520 –> 00:06:27.640
Brandon: By the way, speaking of things that are not popular Amazon laying off nine thousand more people

00:06:27.640 –> 00:06:31.580
Brandon: Those of you that don’t think we’re in a recession or don’t think that the economy is on its way downhill

00:06:31.580 –> 00:06:35.980
Brandon: Look at how many companies are still laying off and this has been a slow news week

00:06:35.980 –> 00:06:42.480
Brandon: And you’ve just been seeing tons of layoffs and stuff like that. It just shows you like I said seven thousand

00:06:42.480 –> 00:06:45.460
Brandon: I’m sorry nine thousand more work and some of those are from a twitch

00:06:45.460 –> 00:06:49.440
Brandon: We were from I guess Amazon owns a bunch of camera sites

00:06:49.560 –> 00:06:55.120
Brandon: They’re those are going those are getting taken down. There’s a bunch of stuff that’s happening

00:06:55.120 –> 00:06:58.920
Brandon: you know with with Amazon and they’re cutting back and all that and

00:06:58.920 –> 00:07:02.680
Brandon: Bezos is is really he’s obviously not there anymore

00:07:02.680 –> 00:07:07.960
Brandon: He’s more focused on the space stuff, but they’ve had to say they said like the I hate to say the Amazon

00:07:07.960 –> 00:07:10.760
Brandon: I mean Amazon, but I hate to say the Alexis and once anybody’s Alexis off

00:07:10.760 –> 00:07:16.040
Brandon: But well, they’ve had a cut back there because they say and they’re not getting a lot of people buying those kind of things

00:07:16.040 –> 00:07:18.040
Brandon: It hasn’t taken off. There’s no way to monetize it

00:07:18.520 –> 00:07:24.000
Brandon: They’ve been really really crazy with that stuff and it’s just not working out the way planned with all that

00:07:24.000 –> 00:07:27.760
Brandon: So I am is on having to having to lay off quite a few people

00:07:27.760 –> 00:07:34.020
Brandon: Obviously Biden, you know, he had his he vetoed that first his first veto that was in the news this week

00:07:34.020 –> 00:07:37.520
Brandon: Not really huge news nothing ever. He did veto his first bill

00:07:37.520 –> 00:07:40.820
Brandon: He if I didn’t have to veto any bills because he had you know

00:07:40.820 –> 00:07:43.400
Brandon: The they had the house and all that so the pie wasn’t much he had a veto

00:07:43.400 –> 00:07:46.160
Brandon: But he just vetoed his first bill the other day

00:07:46.160 –> 00:07:53.680
Brandon: So that was news a lot of a lot of people upset with him because he approved that that willow oil project in Alaska

00:07:53.680 –> 00:07:56.120
Brandon: He’s gonna allow drilling in Alaska

00:07:56.120 –> 00:08:00.940
Brandon: A lot of people are very upset about that that he’s drilling that he’s drilling in a lot really a

00:08:00.940 –> 00:08:05.680
Brandon: Environmentalist and stuff that are saying why are we drilling in Alaska? Why are we drilling in Alaska?

00:08:05.680 –> 00:08:09.920
Brandon: But you know, he’s he approved it and a lot of people really upset about it

00:08:09.920 –> 00:08:14.040
Brandon: I thought for sure people would be happy that he’s allowing some foreign enough form

00:08:14.040 –> 00:08:18.940
Brandon: But he’s allowing Alaska drilling and some of that but really upset about it and kind of surprised to me

00:08:18.940 –> 00:08:24.240
Brandon: You would think that with the cost of gas and stuff like that him allowing a drilling in Alaska

00:08:24.240 –> 00:08:29.000
Brandon: finally shut up a bunch of people but a lot of people were really upset about it and

00:08:29.000 –> 00:08:35.320
Brandon: You know, you know people want lower oil prices, but yet they don’t want worried about the environment. They don’t want people drilling

00:08:35.320 –> 00:08:37.940
Brandon: You can’t have it both ways either you

00:08:38.280 –> 00:08:44.560
Brandon: if you allow drilling and you get loyal prices or and you any up refinement or you

00:08:44.560 –> 00:08:47.160
Brandon: Want clean energy and you want higher gas prices?

00:08:47.160 –> 00:08:52.560
Brandon: I mean you got to take your pick the same people that are upset about high oil prices the same people that are upset about the

00:08:52.560 –> 00:08:53.960
Brandon: environment so

00:08:53.960 –> 00:08:59.020
Brandon: You know take your pick you want hey, you want oil prices or you want energy dependence take your pick

00:08:59.020 –> 00:09:03.960
Brandon: I mean you can’t have it both ways, but I think they’re the bigger the bigger story

00:09:03.960 –> 00:09:09.520
Brandon: I think especially with the government is the debt ceiling that’s coming up was when they said I knew that when they were saying they were

00:09:09.520 –> 00:09:11.920
Brandon: Gonna buy, you know, the Treasury said they were gonna do things to buy time

00:09:11.920 –> 00:09:16.800
Brandon: I knew it wasn’t I knew we were still gonna begin to a debt ceiling crisis eventually. It’s just common

00:09:16.800 –> 00:09:17.680
Brandon: They’ve been wait, you know

00:09:17.680 –> 00:09:22.200
Brandon: we’ve been waiting a long time for the I think this is only inevitable anybody that thought they were gonna have a

00:09:22.200 –> 00:09:27.180
Brandon: Resolution before I got very very close was naive come anything anytime

00:09:27.180 –> 00:09:32.140
Brandon: Any time the a they with the debt ceiling and the Republicans and Democrats are fighting back and forth

00:09:32.140 –> 00:09:37.820
Brandon: They’re gonna wait till the last minute to approve something and I knew it was gonna buy that it was always going with buying extra time

00:09:37.820 –> 00:09:43.140
Brandon: Extra months, but I know this is gonna come right down to the wire when the Treasury Department says hey

00:09:43.140 –> 00:09:48.260
Brandon: We can’t keep floating things along. You’re gonna have to do something with the debt ceiling and that’s exactly what’s gonna happen

00:09:48.260 –> 00:09:51.540
Brandon: It’s gonna come down to the wire. It happened during the the Obama administration

00:09:51.540 –> 00:09:55.060
Brandon: It happened during the Clinton administration having during Trump administration

00:09:55.060 –> 00:10:00.240
Brandon: But this is the first time that the Treasury stepped in and said hey, we’re not going to allow you guys to shut the government down

00:10:00.240 –> 00:10:04.760
Brandon: Again, we’re gonna keep this going till April and I guarantee you there’s gonna be a government shutdown in April watch

00:10:04.760 –> 00:10:08.860
Brandon: I’m almost guaranteed that you’re gonna have a federal government shutdown in it’s gonna happen

00:10:08.860 –> 00:10:15.160
Brandon: It’s it’s inevitable or the Treasury’s gonna somehow buy another month and it’s gonna go into math. It’s it’s inevitable

00:10:15.160 –> 00:10:19.480
Brandon: We’re going to have a government shutdown no matter how long the Treasury tries to buy us

00:10:19.480 –> 00:10:21.920
Brandon: We’re still gonna shut down because people can’t agree

00:10:21.920 –> 00:10:26.480
Brandon: I really and I said this on the live stream last week and I said on the podcast last week

00:10:26.480 –> 00:10:32.480
Brandon: The Republicans want cutbacks all for that but the problem is with the issues going on right now with the budget

00:10:32.480 –> 00:10:36.240
Brandon: You know cutbacks on jobs are gonna put us deeper into a recession

00:10:36.240 –> 00:10:40.960
Brandon: I really think that and I think government shut down and I think you know

00:10:40.960 –> 00:10:42.960
Brandon: Even if they shut down they reopen people get their back

00:10:42.960 –> 00:10:48.580
Brandon: But I really believe that if we do a you know, if do the cutbacks that that they want

00:10:48.580 –> 00:10:51.880
Brandon: I think it’s gonna put the cover of the country into a worse situation

00:10:51.880 –> 00:10:57.560
Brandon: It’s gonna be jobs that are gonna get lost and I mean I do agree with some of the some of the spending cutbacks and stuff

00:10:57.560 –> 00:11:02.100
Brandon: Like that I really do but the problem is the cutbacks are going to lead to exactly that

00:11:02.100 –> 00:11:03.720
Brandon: They’re gonna lead to job loss

00:11:03.720 –> 00:11:08.120
Brandon: We’re gonna put this country into a bigger hole and I hate to say it but that is the the truth

00:11:08.120 –> 00:11:13.120
Brandon: I think that at this point we need is raise the debt ceiling and you know, just just deal with it

00:11:13.120 –> 00:11:18.480
Brandon: I hate to say that but I think that’s the only solution especially with the economy in the situation. It’s in right now

00:11:18.480 –> 00:11:23.760
Brandon: I think the the whole cutting back is just gonna make I hate to say that I’m usually first one to say well

00:11:23.760 –> 00:11:24.680
Brandon: It’s balanced the budget

00:11:24.680 –> 00:11:29.940
Brandon: But at this point we have to raise the debt ceiling and deal with it because now it’s gonna put this country in a worse

00:11:29.940 –> 00:11:31.940
Brandon: hole with this whole

00:11:31.940 –> 00:11:38.120
Brandon: Debt crisis and this whole economy so we just need to bite the bullet raise the debt ceiling and move on to next year

00:11:38.120 –> 00:11:40.120
Brandon: That’s not gonna happen. It just there’s nothing

00:11:40.120 –> 00:11:45.120
Brandon: I mean, it’s just gonna cause more jobs just gonna make the country put the country into a worse already is with oh

00:11:45.240 –> 00:11:51.640
Brandon: Let’s see ton of news stories to go over. I would like to point out that the Sandy Hook

00:11:51.640 –> 00:11:57.080
Brandon: Grew got the the hand Sandy Hook people that have been going after Alex Jones for the judge approved the other day

00:11:57.080 –> 00:11:59.080
Brandon: They’re getting included with the bankruptcy

00:11:59.080 –> 00:12:01.860
Brandon: That one kind of shocked me a little bit for him

00:12:01.860 –> 00:12:05.160
Brandon: It’s a good thing because now when he pays his debts in the bankruptcy, it’ll go to a saint

00:12:05.160 –> 00:12:09.640
Brandon: He’ll be paying Sandy Hook as well. So I think this is maybe not what he wanted

00:12:09.640 –> 00:12:14.600
Brandon: He’s not gonna get out of it totally but he is gonna at least they’re gonna be included in the bankruptcy now

00:12:14.600 –> 00:12:18.380
Brandon: So at least he won’t he can pay when he pays his debt back. He’ll have to pay it

00:12:18.380 –> 00:12:21.920
Brandon: He’ll pay them with the debt. I don’t know if that was his plan or not

00:12:21.920 –> 00:12:25.960
Brandon: I think he wanted to get out of it all together, but that is just not gonna happen

00:12:25.960 –> 00:12:29.480
Brandon: They are going to say hook is going to be included in the bankruptcy

00:12:29.480 –> 00:12:35.080
Brandon: The they already approved it and he’s gonna get included with the bankruptcy now. So

00:12:35.080 –> 00:12:39.140
Brandon: Sandy hook they are gonna get their money. I don’t know how much of it they’re going to get

00:12:39.140 –> 00:12:43.680
Brandon: I don’t think they’re gonna get the whole billion that they want but they are gonna get included with the Alex Jones bankruptcy

00:12:43.680 –> 00:12:45.400
Brandon: Like I said, I don’t know if that’s he what he wanted or not

00:12:45.400 –> 00:12:51.860
Brandon: But that’s what the judge approved the other day. So we will like I said, we’ll see what happens speaking of schools

00:12:51.860 –> 00:12:57.280
Brandon: A lot of a lot of celebrities this week that are on Instagram. I don’t know if anybody follows them

00:12:57.280 –> 00:13:00.740
Brandon: I don’t follow a ton of celebrities on Instagram, but all of them were saying their kids were home

00:13:00.740 –> 00:13:07.240
Brandon: Jennifer love you and she does that that 911 show and I think it’s a I think it’s on ABC or NBC

00:13:07.240 –> 00:13:12.580
Brandon: I don’t know but she was saying the other day that her kids were home and a couple bunch of celebrities saying their kids are

00:13:12.580 –> 00:13:16.040
Brandon: Home, I think it was Megan Fox a bunch of those people that are that are on

00:13:16.040 –> 00:13:20.420
Brandon: That are on social media were saying that the kids were home because of the three-day strike

00:13:20.420 –> 00:13:25.020
Brandon: With all the schools in LA that one was kind of funny and not really in the strikes, you know

00:13:25.020 –> 00:13:29.020
Brandon: I mean every school should all the if you were anybody that lives in LA and you have kids

00:13:29.020 –> 00:13:33.760
Brandon: They were home celebrity or not. So I thought that was kind of fun. That was kind of a funny news story

00:13:33.760 –> 00:13:37.860
Brandon: Let’s see what else we have this week. It was kind of a slow news week. So I

00:13:37.860 –> 00:13:41.220
Brandon: Picked up what what things I thought were important

00:13:41.480 –> 00:13:47.100
Brandon: So 60 year in a row Finland is apparently the happiest country to live in a see Ron Paul

00:13:47.100 –> 00:13:52.720
Brandon: Rant Ron Paul apparently wants the New York DA in jail for what he’s doing to Trump

00:13:52.720 –> 00:13:58.260
Brandon: I thought that was an interesting thing. We saw Kim Jong-yong apparently has been simulating

00:13:58.260 –> 00:14:06.160
Brandon: Nuclear counter-attacks against the US and all that. He’s been running nuclear drills and all that. I thought that was interesting

00:14:06.200 –> 00:14:12.260
Brandon: Well, the other interesting story that came out especially since President Carter was was it you know

00:14:12.260 –> 00:14:18.340
Brandon: Everybody’s been in the news of his health issues over that but they’re apparently talking about how his reelection was sabotaged

00:14:18.340 –> 00:14:21.700
Brandon: by the four decades ago with that

00:14:21.700 –> 00:14:25.420
Brandon: The entire situation the hostage situation like that

00:14:25.420 –> 00:14:31.100
Brandon: They had said that took that went longer than that was supposed to because they wanted to run over into the elections

00:14:31.100 –> 00:14:33.100
Brandon: What caused him to lose the election?

00:14:33.100 –> 00:14:35.900
Brandon: Remember I again a little too young to remember that

00:14:36.720 –> 00:14:40.940
Brandon: You know, he was he was I mean I was alive then but I was small to remember it

00:14:40.940 –> 00:14:42.940
Brandon: But they were saying a lot of people

00:14:42.940 –> 00:14:49.220
Brandon: They were saying that they saying like football’s like for 40 years four decades later that that old that whole thing was done

00:14:49.220 –> 00:14:55.720
Brandon: And they wanted it to run into the elections and stuff. So that would sabotage his election very similar

00:14:55.720 –> 00:14:59.880
Brandon: You know very similar to what I believe with kovat, you know

00:14:59.880 –> 00:15:03.020
Brandon: I’m not saying the Democrats necessarily caused kovat

00:15:03.020 –> 00:15:09.620
Brandon: but I am saying that it definitely helped them get get by an elected because you know,

00:15:09.620 –> 00:15:15.960
Brandon: Yeah, I mean we all know the country dropped the ball with this whole situation with kovat whether you’re Democrat or Republican

00:15:15.960 –> 00:15:23.360
Brandon: They country dropped the ball with kovat and they’re saying that they wanted kovat to run past into the election

00:15:23.360 –> 00:15:28.320
Brandon: Biden get elected kind of the same way. They want hostage to run into the election so that it would hurt

00:15:28.320 –> 00:15:32.600
Brandon: Carter so that was a that was on the news today today

00:15:33.240 –> 00:15:37.240
Brandon: We have photos this week of Putin hanging out in Ukraine

00:15:37.240 –> 00:15:42.920
Brandon: Apparently he he when he was in Ukraine this week or over the last weekend this week

00:15:42.920 –> 00:15:48.740
Brandon: Apparently where they they have taken taken over he dropped in to hang out with the troops. That was in the news

00:15:48.740 –> 00:15:52.540
Brandon: They were talking about the electric school buses and everything going on with that

00:15:52.540 –> 00:15:58.480
Brandon: Saying how now they’re passed the bill and they’re trying to go trying to get my whole issue with the electric school buses is we?

00:15:58.480 –> 00:16:00.480
Brandon: have the ones that are propane and

00:16:01.680 –> 00:16:08.680
Brandon: The you know, I don’t understand why we’re I mean, I know we’re trying to find alternative ways of doing things

00:16:08.680 –> 00:16:13.300
Brandon: We have now all they’re doing, you know, let you know they want to do electric school buses

00:16:13.300 –> 00:16:18.640
Brandon: I just don’t understand but yet over the years. We’ve been trying to do the propane bus. So now they’re doing electric

00:16:18.640 –> 00:16:24.440
Brandon: So what are we doing? We doing electric we doing propane? What are we doing? What are we and why haven’t school buses evolved?

00:16:24.440 –> 00:16:30.460
Brandon: Okay, we’re still school buses still are how old we we don’t we I mean, it’s just ridiculous to me

00:16:30.460 –> 00:16:35.020
Brandon: Why don’t why are why is school first of all, there’s still no seat belts on us. They’re still yellow

00:16:35.020 –> 00:16:40.240
Brandon: It’s the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever seen why our school buses in this day and age still like

00:16:40.240 –> 00:16:42.520
Brandon: Outdate like it still makes like a yellow school bus

00:16:42.520 –> 00:16:47.460
Brandon: It’s still like outdated almost like like you have these big charter buses

00:16:47.460 –> 00:16:51.680
Brandon: Um that are so fuel efficient and all that kind of trips and all that

00:16:51.680 –> 00:16:55.540
Brandon: But yet we still have these these are so dated. I don’t I don’t get it

00:16:55.540 –> 00:16:59.040
Brandon: I don’t understand why has there not been a bus technology over all these decades

00:16:59.040 –> 00:17:04.100
Brandon: I just don’t get it. It’s something that was interesting about the other day. So we said well electric

00:17:04.100 –> 00:17:09.220
Brandon: They want to do this they want to do that but maybe why are we still why are school buses still the way they are?

00:17:09.220 –> 00:17:12.780
Brandon: Why are they still why have they changed? There’s still things they always were

00:17:12.780 –> 00:17:17.240
Brandon: I mean what I don’t deal saying is if it’s not bro, don’t fix it. But why the heck 23?

00:17:17.240 –> 00:17:21.760
Brandon: Why haven’t we updated school bus technology? We got cars that basically can drive themselves

00:17:21.760 –> 00:17:27.080
Brandon: But we can’t get all buses that you know that are I just don’t get it

00:17:27.080 –> 00:17:33.160
Brandon: And and the other thing is too about school bus is is I would be curious to see I know what it costs and how?

00:17:33.160 –> 00:17:35.080
Brandon: Long it takes to charge a Tesla

00:17:35.080 –> 00:17:39.080
Brandon: I’m wondering how long it would take to charge a big school bus like there’s no, you know

00:17:39.080 –> 00:17:41.740
Brandon: I’m waiting to see what and where are they gonna charge them?

00:17:41.740 –> 00:17:44.780
Brandon: I mean, I think I think you know, we can’t even get electric cars in the road now

00:17:44.780 –> 00:17:46.180
Brandon: We’re gonna get electric school buses

00:17:46.180 –> 00:17:51.000
Brandon: I just have quite big quite interest and I’m waiting to see what’s gonna happen with the alert with the school bus

00:17:51.000 –> 00:17:55.560
Brandon: I mean they’re saying they have funding set aside and all that for these school buses, but we’re

00:17:56.300 –> 00:18:00.700
Brandon: You know, we I mean get car thing rolled out yet. Now. We’re really worried about school buses

00:18:00.700 –> 00:18:05.360
Brandon: I’m waiting to see what’s gonna happen with that. Anybody knows more about that. Let me know cuz I’m really wondering why haven’t this?

00:18:05.360 –> 00:18:10.420
Brandon: Why is it school bus technology advanced? Like I said, we got electric cars, you know, we can now we’re doing school

00:18:10.420 –> 00:18:15.720
Brandon: I I don’t get it. The big push was propane. No, we that didn’t know a lot of people have propane buses now

00:18:15.720 –> 00:18:17.360
Brandon: We’re moving over to electric right away

00:18:17.360 –> 00:18:19.760
Brandon: So now you’re gonna have this propane thing

00:18:19.760 –> 00:18:20.040
Brandon: Hey

00:18:20.040 –> 00:18:24.760
Brandon: Unless the propane is gonna take over for diesel and then we’re gonna be on propane for a while while they try to get the electric

00:18:24.760 –> 00:18:32.180
Brandon: School bus see what the future of that is. Let me know what you think comments Philadelphia to pay nine million dollars to the joy

00:18:32.180 –> 00:18:37.980
Brandon: To the to the George Floyd protesters, you know, I have a they’re saying yeah, I don’t know

00:18:37.980 –> 00:18:43.960
Brandon: I have a mixed feelings about this personally. I don’t understand why we’re I mean people protest

00:18:43.960 –> 00:18:47.840
Brandon: I know, you know some of the protesters some of it some of it was peaceful

00:18:47.840 –> 00:18:52.200
Brandon: A lot of it was not people got hurt whatever and now we’re paying these I you know

00:18:52.200 –> 00:18:58.600
Brandon: This is what happens when lawyers get involved with everything. I don’t agree with it. I think it was really really stupid foolish

00:18:58.600 –> 00:19:05.120
Brandon: I mean, I’m not saying what happened to Floyd was right not saying that you know, whatever your feelings on that are whatever

00:19:05.120 –> 00:19:11.280
Brandon: But I mean the fact that people are now suing and winning and getting money being a protest and some of it was a violent protest

00:19:11.280 –> 00:19:15.860
Brandon: I don’t really agree with that at all. But you know, that’s again that’s what happens when you have lawyers, you know

00:19:15.860 –> 00:19:21.200
Brandon: That happens. I don’t mean to insult anybody that’s a lawyer, but that is kind of kind of what happens

00:19:21.520 –> 00:19:24.180
Brandon: So we have other news as well talking about

00:19:24.180 –> 00:19:30.560
Brandon: Apple Apple warning their employees that if they do not come back to the office by a certain date, they will be fired

Brandon: And if you’re going to the bare minimum to get Bob gonna get bare minimum reviews when it comes time to that next level

00:22:23.480 –> 00:22:29.620
Brandon: Okay, you never see hashtag work hard. You never see hashtag. Give it your all you never see any of that on Twitter

00:22:29.620 –> 00:22:36.620
Brandon: Okay, that’s that whole thing of you know, people want to do bare minimum and get with the next person. Okay?

00:22:36.620 –> 00:22:41.140
Brandon: This is that whole socialism communism thing that everybody talks about that. I don’t agree

00:22:41.140 –> 00:22:43.860
Brandon: I mean you get puppies paying you do the best job possible

00:22:43.860 –> 00:22:49.220
Brandon: You can’t you know, we all you know, you know P those people that put the extra and those people that do me

00:22:49.220 –> 00:22:55.340
Brandon: You know, sometimes I get it. I do get it. Sometimes it stinks the office politics, but I’m sorry if I’m getting paid job

00:22:55.340 –> 00:22:59.420
Brandon: I’m gonna do the best job possible that I mean that’s you know, that’s just the way it is

00:22:59.420 –> 00:23:04.060
Brandon: I mean, but but again, we have this whole thing in this country of you know work your wage work your wage

00:23:04.260 –> 00:23:09.100
Brandon: You know, and I don’t know I don’t agree with it at all. The big story for me is this whole crap with tick-tock

00:23:09.100 –> 00:23:14.260
Brandon: You know, I understand if I want to band and people saying Oh tick-tock tick-tock tick-tock tick-tock

00:23:14.260 –> 00:23:18.700
Brandon: But there are a lot of people I know tick-tock had really helped their business quite a bit

00:23:18.700 –> 00:23:23.260
Brandon: And I first of all, even if even if they mean I agree with them banning and search well

00:23:23.260 –> 00:23:28.360
Brandon: Nobody should be running tick-tock hunt on a company phone a federal device

00:23:28.360 –> 00:23:35.140
Brandon: If that phone is not your personal device, you should not be running tick-tock. Okay, that’s first of all

00:23:35.140 –> 00:23:39.100
Brandon: So I agree with banning tick-tock on federal like that and I agree with them banning it in

00:23:39.100 –> 00:23:42.280
Brandon: Buildings where they’re worried about security. I agree with all that

00:23:42.280 –> 00:23:47.660
Brandon: But there are a lot of people that tick-tock has helped their business out a lot during COVID

00:23:47.660 –> 00:23:53.100
Brandon: A lot of people that when the government got us down that they use tick-tock to become social

00:23:53.100 –> 00:23:56.360
Brandon: Influencers and make money that way I know a lot of people

00:23:56.900 –> 00:24:04.480
Brandon: That podcast that game that make make livings online that do need tick-tock as a tool to reach a younger demographic

00:24:04.480 –> 00:24:11.840
Brandon: So I don’t necessarily agree with with banning it because in my opinion and this is my whole reason about politics

00:24:11.840 –> 00:24:18.420
Brandon: They pick on things. I’m not saying that I’m not saying that tick-tock. What I am saying is

00:24:18.420 –> 00:24:20.000
Brandon: Facebook

00:24:20.000 –> 00:24:25.140
Brandon: Okay, take a device about anything you want to talk about. Okay, leave it on your desk

00:24:25.220 –> 00:24:26.880
Brandon: Talk about whatever you want to talk about

00:24:26.880 –> 00:24:32.500
Brandon: Okay, and then watch like later on in the day go start getting ads and I think you talked about Facebook does the same thing

00:24:32.500 –> 00:24:36.160
Brandon: Twitter does this okay snapchat. I think this okay

00:24:36.160 –> 00:24:41.600
Brandon: I I don’t the only difference is that tick-tock a jet Chinese company. Mmm. Do I

00:24:41.600 –> 00:24:44.540
Brandon: Agree with I first of all

00:24:44.540 –> 00:24:50.080
Brandon: I think I think tick-tock was in the right move of having to make it be in America and we check on their service

00:24:50.080 –> 00:24:51.840
Brandon: I do think that was a good idea

00:24:51.840 –> 00:24:55.780
Brandon: But you have companies like Facebook and Google and things like that that are in China

00:24:55.780 –> 00:25:02.560
Brandon: So are the Chinese spying on those servers, you know, see this is the tough situation in this country

00:25:02.560 –> 00:25:08.460
Brandon: Especially when it comes to computers and all that kind of stuff it we go after whatever the hot topic

00:25:08.460 –> 00:25:14.100
Brandon: Okay, but there are other things we should you know that that aren’t never talked about like I said about China

00:25:14.100 –> 00:25:19.240
Brandon: About you know, what about all the American companies that are they spying on those servers?

00:25:19.620 –> 00:25:25.940
Brandon: Microsoft has servers in China, you know, and what about Russia? What about Russia? We have services in Russia is Russia spying on

00:25:25.940 –> 00:25:33.180
Brandon: American company server. I mean these are things that you know right now you on tick-tock. Okay, which is fine. I get it

00:25:33.180 –> 00:25:33.720
Brandon: I’m not a big fan

00:25:33.720 –> 00:25:40.940
Brandon: But the problem is is there are other it along with this aren’t being and I think that’s a big issue that we really need

00:25:40.940 –> 00:25:44.940
Brandon: To worry about it. Okay. Yes, we need to worry about tick-tock worry about stuff

00:25:44.940 –> 00:25:49.340
Brandon: That’s related to tick-lock and stuff like we don’t talk about we don’t talk about we don’t I mean we did for a while

00:25:49.340 –> 00:25:54.300
Brandon: If you remember for a while there, you know Facebook was was had a you know had a being a couple years ago

00:25:54.300 –> 00:25:57.800
Brandon: He they were in front of Congress in the Senate that a couple at Google was in there

00:25:57.800 –> 00:26:00.160
Brandon: I think Apple cook had a testify in there

00:26:00.160 –> 00:26:05.340
Brandon: There was a lot of things going on in that time that no and but but lately it’s all been

00:26:05.340 –> 00:26:12.140
Brandon: Kind of swept in the rug for the other issue with a lot of this crap is that we we get so wrapped up

00:26:12.140 –> 00:26:18.580
Brandon: And worked up about that. We forget about issues that that that were an issue like Facebook Twitter

00:26:19.140 –> 00:26:24.500
Brandon: You know Facebook openly admits they take your data and they sell what if those data brokers are from China, you know

00:26:24.500 –> 00:26:28.740
Brandon: I mean that that’s the thing nobody’s talking about what if Facebook takes your data and sells a data broker in China

00:26:28.740 –> 00:26:36.200
Brandon: What if four square or MapQuest or I’m just used throwing out names but you know being data to these to these foreign companies

00:26:36.200 –> 00:26:40.740
Brandon: Or what if I what if Facebook sells your data to a company who then sells it to China?

00:26:40.740 –> 00:26:42.940
Brandon: So, I mean there’s a lot of things that we don’t talk about

00:26:42.940 –> 00:26:45.540
Brandon: I know I know we’re picking on tick-tock as a Chinese company

00:26:45.540 –> 00:26:51.100
Brandon: But there are other things that go on with data broker data broker gene that are a big issue

00:26:51.100 –> 00:26:55.220
Brandon: I know everybody’s worried about the things, you know influencing and all that kind of stuff

00:26:55.220 –> 00:27:01.280
Brandon: But but they can influence just as easily on Facebook or Twitter as they can on tick-tock or snapchat

00:27:01.280 –> 00:27:02.340
Brandon: So I don’t like I said

00:27:02.340 –> 00:27:04.680
Brandon: I’m anti the fact that we are

00:27:04.680 –> 00:27:09.740
Brandon: Constant worried about tick-tock when we have other issues and stuff to worry about

00:27:09.740 –> 00:27:15.040
Brandon: Data is a big issue and we don’t really talk about it because it is a bit then what pointed out to be

00:27:15.040 –> 00:27:20.260
Brandon: You know in front of companies and there is so much issues with data broker

00:27:20.260 –> 00:27:22.260
Brandon: We don’t I know we’re talking about a bigger

00:27:22.260 –> 00:27:29.080
Brandon: Conversation of people’s personal data is handled Amazon’s even guilty of this Amazon knows what you search for. They know to buy

00:27:29.080 –> 00:27:32.740
Brandon: They know all that stuff and and yet the data and move

00:27:32.740 –> 00:27:33.220
Brandon: Okay

00:27:33.220 –> 00:27:40.520
Brandon: So there are bigger issue data brokers Amazon purpose has bought companies or done things to better their own

00:27:40.840 –> 00:27:48.180
Brandon: Agendas when it comes to pushing they’ll push YouTube does it goes over, you know, all these other companies not just so

00:27:48.180 –> 00:27:51.540
Brandon: I think there’s a bigger discussion that needs to happen in all that data

00:27:51.540 –> 00:27:56.780
Brandon: Especially especially the location data from phones. Okay

00:27:56.780 –> 00:28:05.540
Brandon: Google how many times have been caught tracking people’s location data when their location data is off on their phone. That’s a big problem

00:28:05.660 –> 00:28:12.860
Brandon: Okay data. Okay, they’re they’re tracking people’s day there you literally turn GPS off on your phone so that Google can track you

00:28:12.860 –> 00:28:14.720
Brandon: But they’re still tracking you anyway, okay

00:28:14.720 –> 00:28:19.040
Brandon: That’s a serious problem and that that Google’s caught so many times doing

00:28:19.040 –> 00:28:22.600
Brandon: Samsung’s been caught doing it all the Android manufacturers

00:28:22.600 –> 00:28:26.640
Brandon: Okay with the way we handle with the way the data is handled with the way

00:28:26.640 –> 00:28:32.640
Brandon: Location data is handled the way all that stuff is handled and in this country. We seriously serious

00:28:32.640 –> 00:28:37.420
Brandon: We need we need these companies accountable for the stuff. They’re doing that’s tracking us

00:28:37.420 –> 00:28:42.440
Brandon: we need to hold these discount these companies accountable for what they’re the

00:28:42.440 –> 00:28:48.480
Brandon: There’s the data they’re keeping on us where they’re selling it who they’re selling it to

00:28:48.480 –> 00:28:52.020
Brandon: There’s a lot of stuff that goes on a lot of stuff behind the scenes

00:28:52.020 –> 00:28:58.100
Brandon: Nobody talks about that a really big issue in this it’s not it’s tick-tock is only being picked on Chinese, okay

00:28:58.100 –> 00:29:01.480
Brandon: Let’s talk about a company like Kaspersky. Okay, the

00:29:02.520 –> 00:29:05.340
Brandon: Antivirus company there are Russian owned company yet

00:29:05.340 –> 00:29:07.200
Brandon: They’re still allowed this other antivirus in America

00:29:07.200 –> 00:29:12.680
Brandon: Who knows what that antivirus software is doing on your machine what it’s sending back to Russia

00:29:12.680 –> 00:29:16.160
Brandon: Just some food for thought on that one. Okay, we’re not I don’t see anybody in

00:29:16.160 –> 00:29:21.900
Brandon: The Congress talking about you know talking about that or let’s talk about LiveJournal

00:29:21.900 –> 00:29:26.620
Brandon: I’m coming that’s owned by Russia hot servers are in Russia people go on there and blog all the time

00:29:26.620 –> 00:29:31.500
Brandon: Who knows what data LiveJournal is collecting on all okay? I mean then that’s a Russian company

00:29:31.500 –> 00:29:35.200
Brandon: Why aren’t we talking about that brushes? You know we’re not in such good relationship with Russia right now

00:29:35.200 –> 00:29:37.100
Brandon: Why isn’t anybody talking about that okay?

00:29:37.100 –> 00:29:42.140
Brandon: So there’s a lot of things that I personally have issues with that

00:29:42.140 –> 00:29:47.540
Brandon: We’re not talking about right, and you know it is a big problem and the fact that we are

00:29:47.540 –> 00:29:56.000
Brandon: Literally I mean letting companies like like Russian companies sell their same thing with like I said you know we’re all about tick-tock

00:29:56.000 –> 00:30:00.820
Brandon: What about all this other crap dressed so again folks kind of scary when you think about it kind of scary?

00:30:00.820 –> 00:30:03.520
Brandon: That’s what you can’t always trust which you can’t always try right?

00:30:03.520 –> 00:30:10.640
Brandon: I’m more worried about stuff like Kaspersky the name anything else and China look at China China problem panda antivirus, okay?

00:30:10.640 –> 00:30:15.600
Brandon: There’s another one and the antivirus. Why are they allowed there are Chinese antivirus, okay?

00:30:15.600 –> 00:30:19.760
Brandon: Why aren’t they on the list that aren’t allowed to sell such you? Why aren’t they block come on?

00:30:19.760 –> 00:30:23.700
Brandon: You’re selling software on their computer, and then you’re doing your banking and stuff who knows what data

00:30:23.700 –> 00:30:29.780
Brandon: They’re collecting and they’re from China. You know I mean it’s it’s not something, but that’s not being brought just tick-tock

00:30:29.780 –> 00:30:34.680
Brandon: We’re paying into they sell hundred you know millions of why aren’t they and why aren’t they under so just like I said

00:30:34.680 –> 00:30:37.680
Brandon: It’s not always just it’s a lot of thing a Huawei

00:30:37.680 –> 00:30:42.360
Brandon: Even why even why and I hate to bring something little yz yz camera buying

00:30:42.360 –> 00:30:45.120
Brandon: I mean that wasn’t it, but look at they they let it

00:30:45.120 –> 00:30:51.000
Brandon: They’ll give them no the shit now granted ring his own, but still why does why and I’m not saying them saying

00:30:51.000 –> 00:30:54.040
Brandon: Why are they allowed video? I know camera

00:30:54.040 –> 00:30:56.180
Brandon: That’s not right now a lot of people say how cool circuits

00:30:56.180 –> 00:31:03.160
Brandon: But those clerked system wanted remotely still half over the internet and a lot of times EBRs are on the internet

00:31:03.160 –> 00:31:05.280
Brandon: That have to record it so again

00:31:05.280 –> 00:31:11.100
Brandon: Just a lot of stuff you got to really think when you you know when you handle any of this anything when it comes to

00:31:11.100 –> 00:31:13.600
Brandon: Data brokered you know most electronics are made

00:31:13.600 –> 00:31:20.680
Brandon: Overseas I’m not saying tough on you get a lot of these these burner phones like that who knows what Chinese track you especially those

00:31:20.680 –> 00:31:25.520
Brandon: Cheap burner phone you don’t know who what kind of malware or something on there is scanning your stuff

00:31:25.520 –> 00:31:29.920
Brandon: So again stuff that you you know, I don’t want to scare anybody. I don’t want anybody not to sleep tonight

00:31:29.920 –> 00:31:34.000
Brandon: Oh, it’s just something I just think this whole thing with tick-tock is kind of smoking me

00:31:34.000 –> 00:31:38.380
Brandon: Because there are other things to worry about in this country that we’re and I just think that he as a country

00:31:38.380 –> 00:31:44.560
Brandon: Need to be a little more mindful of not all the other from other country the big name on my notes here

00:31:44.560 –> 00:31:49.040
Brandon: Before we end the show the Washington Post we all remember them again

00:31:49.040 –> 00:31:51.320
Brandon: I know a lot of their right or left leaning but stick with me

00:31:51.320 –> 00:31:55.400
Brandon: And obviously we all remember Bezos bought them a couple years ago. It’s occluded near Amazon

00:31:55.400 –> 00:31:57.920
Brandon: If you want to read I just wanna point out something to if you do want to read

00:31:57.920 –> 00:32:01.200
Brandon: The Washington Post you can get it for Bezos kind of bone with them

00:32:01.200 –> 00:32:03.560
Brandon: He bought them a bunch of years ago, but they’re saying the papers not

00:32:03.560 –> 00:32:06.520
Brandon: Not doing so well over the last year or two

00:32:06.520 –> 00:32:12.680
Brandon: They’re saying that they’re having some difficulties. They’ve had they’re gonna be doing layoffs just like other companies

00:32:12.680 –> 00:32:15.040
Brandon: I mean, that’s definitely what they’re saying

00:32:15.040 –> 00:32:20.480
Brandon: Is that they’re saying that the Washington Post is not be you know, the powerhouse that you’d bezos

00:32:20.480 –> 00:32:22.060
Brandon: They’re not having late breaking stories

00:32:22.060 –> 00:32:25.440
Brandon: They’re not getting any of that stuff that he do. So I thought that was kind of interesting

00:32:25.440 –> 00:32:29.880
Brandon: Washington Post been around a long time man, and it’s kind of shame

00:32:29.880 –> 00:32:31.740
Brandon: They’ve been around probably as long as the New York Times

00:32:31.740 –> 00:32:33.680
Brandon: But it’s a little shame to see that they’ve kind of fun

00:32:33.680 –> 00:32:37.860
Brandon: But I know they lean a little more a little more a little more to the left than to the right

00:32:37.860 –> 00:32:42.400
Brandon: But it’s a shame to see a company that’s been around for as long as they have struggling and I know a lot in general

00:32:42.400 –> 00:32:50.160
Brandon: I mean anybody I want to point this out to you that that is not just a newspaper industry the podcast industry anything ad-supported

00:32:50.560 –> 00:32:55.240
Brandon: Online right now is really struggling ever especially over the last year or two

00:32:55.240 –> 00:33:00.620
Brandon: Online advertising has become very tough thing any ad supported podcast any ads

00:33:00.620 –> 00:33:06.280
Brandon: Websites pay anything like that ad supported is getting incredibly hard anymore

00:33:06.280 –> 00:33:11.620
Brandon: I don’t know if it’s just because of the way the world is right now, but online advertising is getting it’s getting very tough

00:33:11.620 –> 00:33:16.720
Brandon: It’s getting very cutthroat. It’s getting very very hard to support anything on my ad base

00:33:16.720 –> 00:33:19.700
Brandon: I know even smaller friends of mine that have smaller businesses

00:33:19.700 –> 00:33:26.040
Brandon: They’re saying you know, the ads hard to get ad buys and stuff like that and you’re looking at small mom-and-pop operations

00:33:26.040 –> 00:33:30.240
Brandon: Now imagine you have something big like the Washington Post or you got hundreds probably

00:33:30.240 –> 00:33:33.920
Brandon: You know he’s working and you have to support all those salaries on ad buy, you know

00:33:33.920 –> 00:33:40.360
Brandon: If you’re a small websites and small podcasters to imagine how or small you try imagine how these big changing news lands trying

00:33:40.360 –> 00:33:44.020
Brandon: You know make money on monetization. It’s it’s not easy

00:33:44.020 –> 00:33:47.420
Brandon: Like I said, it’s not just I mean the bigger companies are gonna feel at first

00:33:48.080 –> 00:33:55.680
Brandon: Obviously because they’re bigger they got more overhead. Yeah, it’s it’s not just them. It’s also smaller companies too are struggling Spotify

00:33:55.680 –> 00:33:58.360
Brandon: They’re not getting the ad by people have found a numb

00:33:58.360 –> 00:34:02.780
Brandon: But they don’t need to spend your million dollar a year on newspaper

00:34:02.780 –> 00:34:07.600
Brandon: I think people are being much more for advertising. We’re going to recession people are advertising much

00:34:07.600 –> 00:34:12.480
Brandon: I mean an example really got pointed out some of the day when it came to advertising Cola

00:34:12.720 –> 00:34:19.980
Brandon: Found that they’re getting they got new their Twitter face the course of Super Bowl response halftime spot to ask

00:34:19.980 –> 00:34:22.720
Brandon: Well halftime and I think still is very bad

00:34:22.720 –> 00:34:29.200
Brandon: But with Pepsi Cola saying that when they ran their analytics, it was much more effective for them

00:34:29.200 –> 00:34:35.240
Brandon: They could target more of their niche market through Twitter and Facebook and online

00:34:35.240 –> 00:34:41.720
Brandon: advertising then they could with just blanket advertising getting the halftime and I thought that was interesting because

00:34:42.040 –> 00:34:44.040
Brandon: You know when you really think about

00:34:44.040 –> 00:34:50.040
Brandon: About stuff like that. Yeah. Okay, you’re buying a Super Bowl ad lots of you know

00:34:50.040 –> 00:34:52.920
Brandon: That’s the biggest you know most eyes you’re ever gonna have on you

00:34:52.920 –> 00:34:58.620
Brandon: But that might not be better watching you might not and I think Pepsi and a lot of other companies are realizing that now

00:34:58.620 –> 00:35:04.120
Brandon: And that’s why they’re saying that the ad buys is, you know, people are shying away from that big realizing

00:35:04.120 –> 00:35:09.980
Brandon: Okay, maybe it’s maybe I shouldn’t advertise at his big scale or a lot of you know, a lot of eyeballs

00:35:09.980 –> 00:35:16.220
Brandon: Maybe I should spend less money target, but like I said, they said the the New York the sorry the Washington Post along with you know

00:35:16.220 –> 00:35:21.240
Brandon: Struggling a little bit and and you know, we see it we saw and I think it’s gonna be a transition

00:35:21.240 –> 00:35:23.260
Brandon: Just like the New York Times had a difficult time

00:35:23.260 –> 00:35:29.620
Brandon: They did eventually but I think you’re the Washington watch the post them transitioning and scaling back and changing the way they delivered

00:35:29.620 –> 00:35:36.220
Brandon: I mean look they’ve they’ve gone to really more podcasting niche podcasting than they’ve ever done before to get advertisers

00:35:36.220 –> 00:35:40.760
Brandon: So I think it’s just a change of business a change where things are going but it’s anything with ad anything ads

00:35:40.760 –> 00:35:46.080
Brandon: That’s why a lot of websites and a lot of even podcasts of a subscription bay try to off

00:35:46.080 –> 00:35:52.080
Brandon: So, uh, like I said folks, I want to thank you for listening and we’ll see on the next episode. Thank you very much

00:35:52.080 –> 00:35:53.360
Brandon: Thank you so much.
