My name is Austin Adams and thank you so much for listening today. On today's episode, we are going to dive deep into some wild situations. The first one being that the CIA has whistleblower come out and said that the CIA was actually paying off It's analysts to bury the findings that COVID was a lab leak, literally giving. Their own analysts, financial incentives to switch their opinions on whether or not that was the case. So we read about that, then we will discuss Russell Brand, who is in the news for some not so good things. Some reports coming out and accusations regarding some sexual assault allegations and potentially even worse, he was actually had his YouTube channel suspended or D demonetized today. So we'll discuss. That as a result. And then going a little bit deeper into that, we're going to look at the Mormon Church actually denouncing Tim Ballard. Tim Ballard being the once founder of Operation Underground Railroad. Also the person who is depicted in the movie, the Sound of Freedom, which we've talked about at length here before. So we'll look at what these allegations are, why they denounced him, and. Tim Ballard had a response to this that he did a video on this guy with his PRs is pretty, pretty wild stuff. So we'll look at that. After that, we'll look at a Texas church talking about churches Texas church, which is experimenting with AI generated services using chat GPT for worship sermon and original songs. That is one of the most dystopian things that I've ever heard. So, we'll discuss that. Now, again, as always, the longer you stay with me, the deeper we get. So, after that, we'll discuss the findings of the Mexican doctors who concluded after their tests were done on the alleged non human alien Corpses. So we have their findings on that. So if you don't know, we haven't talked about this yet here because we had a little bit of a layoff over the last couple of weeks for several reasons. But what happened was Mexico had a congressional hearing where there was two alleged alien bodies, which were shown at the congressional hearing. And they look every bit of ET that you could imagine. So what ended up happening is these Mexican doctors actually did a, some tests on these bodies and we'll see, I haven't read this yet, so we'll see what they actually found. And then, last but not least, this is a story that has been surfacing. Pretty consistently somewhat recently regarding, if you recall, Malaysia Air, I believe it was Malaysia Air 370. That was a airplane which had gotten lost, you know, we go all the way back to 2000 and, let's see. This was filmed in 2014, yeah, lost in 2014, I believe. Now there's some really big deep dives that some people did into this situation. And they came up with some pretty wild stuff. And we'll discuss it all. But first, I need you to head over to the substack Austin Adams dot substack calm, go ahead and get signed up.

And let's jump into it. The Adams archive. All right. The very first thing that we're going to discuss today is going to be that the CIA had a whistleblower come out and say that the CIA was paying off its own analysts to bury the findings that COVID was a lab leak from Wuhan. China. So let's read this article. It comes from the New York Post and it says, the Central Intelligence Agency offered to pay off analysts in order to bury their findings. That Covid most likely was from a lab in Wuhan China. A new whistleblower testimony to Congress alleges, and this goes on to say that a senior. Level CIA officer told house committee leaders that his agency tried to pay off six analysts who found that SARS COVID 2 likely originated in a Wuhan lab. And if they changed their position and said that this, the virus jumped from animals to humans, according to a letter sent Tuesday to CIA director, William Burns. Select committee on the coronavirus pandemic chairman, Brad one strap and. Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence Chairman Mike Turner requested all the documents, communications, and pay info from the CIA's COVID Discovery Team by September 26th. So they're actually going to be doing further investigation into this, thankfully, and that will be in just about a week's time. So we'll have to see what comes up from that. According to the whistleblower, at the end of its review, six of the seven members of the team believed the intelligence and science were sufficient to make a low confidence assessment that COVID 19 originated from a laboratory in Wuhan, China. The house. Panel chairman wrote. That's crazy. Six out of the seven people on this specific team believed that the virus came from a lab leak, and the CIA wanted to hush every one of them, and they tried to do so by incentivizing them, allegedly, With money. So now they're pulling all of those financial hearings. Now we actually have the document from Congress which says. Which is comes from the Honorable William J. Burns says to select to Director Burns to the Select Committee of the Coronavirus pandemic and the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence together. The committees have received new and concerning whistleblower testimony regarding the agency's investigation into the origins of COVID 19. A multi decade, senior level, current agency officer has come forward to provide information to the committees regarding the agency's analysis into the origins of COVID 19. According to the whistleblower, the agency assigned seven officers to a COVID discovery team. The team consisted of multidisciplinary and experienced officers with significant scientific expertise. According to the whistleblower, at the... End of its review, six of the seven members of the team believed that the intelligence and science were severe sufficient to make a low confidence assessment that COVID 19 originated from a laboratory in Wuhan, China. The seventh member of the team who also happened to be the most senior was the lone officer to believe that COVID 19 originated through zoonosis. The whistleblower further contends that to come to the eventual public contends that to come to the eventual public determination of uncertainty, the other six members were given a sufficient or significant monetary incentive to change their position. These allegations from a seemingly credible source requires the committees to conduct further oversight of how the CIA handled its internal investigations into the origins of COVID 19. To assist the committees, and again, this is What they actually wrote to Congress with their investigations. We request the following documents and information as soon as possible, but no later than September 26, 2023, all documents and communications regarding the establishment of all iterations of the COVID discovery teams. All documents and communications between or among the members of all iterations of the COVID discovery team regarding the origins of COVID 19 and all documents and communications between or among members of all iterations of the COVID discovery team and other employees or contractors of the agency regarding the origins of COVID 19all documents and communications between them or among members of all iterations. Including but not limited to the US Department of State, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the US Department of Health and Human Services to include the National Institutes of Health and the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and the US Department of Energy regarding the origins of Covid 19. And lastly, all documents and communications regarding the pay history to include the awarding of any type of financial or performance-based incentive financial bonuses to members of all iterations of the C Ovid 19 discovery team. The select subcommittee on the coronavirus pandemic is authorized to investigate the origins of the coronavirus pandemic, including but not limited to the federal government's funding of gain of function research and executive branch policies, deliberations, decisions, activities, and internal or external communications related to the COVID coronavirus pandemic. Whew, that's a mouthful. Further house rule. 11 Clause 2 and 1B grants committees of the House of Representatives with the authority to require by subpoena or otherwise the attendance and testimony of such witnesses in the production of such books, records, correspondence, memorandums, papers, and documents as it considers necessary should the required information not be produced in an expeditious or satisfactory manner. You should expect the committee or committees to use its additional tools and authorities to satisfy our legislative and oversight requirements. Thank you for your attention. And then signed by the chairman. Of the Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, Mike Turner, and the Chairman of Select Subcommittee on Coronavirus Pandemic, Brad Wenstrup. Curious who this Brad Wenstrup is. Anyways. The Honorable Raul Ruiz Ranking Member. Alright, so there's your, there's your document on that. Alright so. This goes on to say that in a separate letter the House Committee leaders, and I'll go ahead and just pull this up on the screen for you guys so you can actually. Look with me here. There we go. All right. So this also goes on to say, In a separate letter, In a separate letter, the House committee leaders identified former CIA chief operating officer, Andrew McCready, Mac, Macridis, as having played a central role in the COVID investigation, and asked him to sit for a transcribed interview. At CIA, we are committed to the highest level of standards of analytic rigor, integrity, and objectivity. Of course you are, just not when it comes to assassinating Kennedys. We do not pay an analyst to reach specific conclusions. Of course we wouldn't do that. The post, in a statement, we take these allegations extremely serious and are looking into them. We will keep our congressional oversight committees appropriately informed. Hmm. Interesting, interesting to see if there's anything more from this article that we should be discussing now to the comment section, which is really what matters, which says that if they are actively covering up evidence that COVID came from gain of function research that was weaponizing a virus, then I wonder what other part they might have in all of this. It seems as if we would want to know the truth of origin if we truly want to prevent similar future. outbreaks. That's a good point, right? Why would you want to cover up the origins of this? Why would you not want to get to the bottom of what happened to prevent it from happening again in the future, unless you or somebody, you know, or somebody who's giving you money. Had any take or partook in any of it, right? Why, why, if you, if you don't have any skin in the game, if you're not somebody who's going to be held liable, if you're not concerned about anything coming back to you as an organization, or maybe as the person who ordered these things to happen, why would you be doing this? That's weird. Huh. The next person said, remember when it was the political left that challenged questions and were skeptical of the various three lettered agencies yet now the left is in unquestioning lockstep when with its former arch enemies, pretty remarkable change in the last. generation. It is pretty crazy to like you go back to the 70s, you go back to the 80s, you go back to the 90s, right? The Democratic Party, the left was primarily the hippies, not the the suit and tie wearing grandfathers that we used to think were Republicans back in the day, right? You always that's always how it was pictured for a very long time, right? That that Republicans were these stiff old white men, and The cool people, the, the artists, the this, the that, the, you know, the people who were free thinkers were the people who were on the left, right? Those were the liberals. Those were the the, the Democrats. And, and it seems like we have shifted pretty, pretty significantly to where the left just wants to be completely in line with anything and everything that daddy government says that they should be in line with. And the right questions literally everything, right? For how long were we saying that there's alien evidence, alien evidence, alien evidence? And all of a sudden, the government comes out with alien evidence, and all of a sudden, we're all questioning it, right? Just because the government actually told us that. There was no winning scenario there. But, now that that information's coming out, and it's coming from the mouth of the government, and not other institutions, which we actually trust, we're questioning that too. Because, Everything the government does has an agenda or else they wouldn't be doing it because the government is just about siphoning money from the pool of tax money that they extorted from its people, right? So once you realize that, you have to realize that there's an agenda behind everything, right? The only way for you to be successful in politics, the only way for you to get into the positions that you want to is, well, maybe a already have hundreds of billions of dollars in the bank and self fund yourself and not have to take money from lobbyists, but maybe there's only been. A handful of people like that in recent history and by handful, I mean, maybe two or three and by recent history, I mean, since 1776, but but it's, it's pretty wild to see that, you know, the left is just so in line with everything the government says, so in line with mask mandates, so in line with you know, what, what the CIA is doing with, with everything and anything that comes out from the government. They're just immediately fall in line with it, right? All of that. They are the propaganda Enforcers is the liberal far left, right and and we have to say far left Although I I tend to believe that the left is far more radical in this ideologies than the right is Even if you go to like the far right, right, the far right, being the proud boy type people the, the QAnon conspiracy theorists on, on all of the the deep channels of 4chan, right? It's like when, in order to get to that level, you're probably looking at when it, when it comes to the liberal left, right? We're talking about what, what are the extreme ideologies of the liberal left? The extreme ideologies of the liberal left is that, oh, Any single moment prior to birth, a child should be able to be killed within the womb, right? There's, there's no, there's no conversation more than until it's born, right? That's a pretty radical idea. And I would say, let's say 30 percent of Democrats agree with that idea. Okay, there's one. All right, the secondary idea being that, you know, let's let's say socialism, like true capital, not capitalism, but socialism, that, you know, everybody and anybody should have their fair share of everything, regardless of work ethic, right? Equality of outcome, right? And you might look at it, maybe not straight socialism, but equality of outcome, right? They want the top 1 percent of people to pay the top, you know, 75 percent of taxes, right? Okay, that seems like somewhat of a radical ideology. They don't want people to be able to have Guns that's a that's a pretty radical ideology. Let's just say again for argument's sake that that's 30 percent 30 percent of the radical left Believes that we shouldn't be able to own any weapons at all any weapons at all Well in 30 percent might be generous. It's probably closer like 35 40 and again, I'm just throwing shit out there, but 35% And then you go into what's another radical idea? Oh, well, maybe that your children at the age of two to three years old, four years old should be able to determine their gender, even though they were born with the chromosomes that they were born with. Okay, that's a pretty radical ideology that your child should be able to choose its own gender when it can't choose its own lunch. Because it would choose candy every day. And that's maybe closer to 60 percent of the, let's say, the radical left, or the left in general, believes that. Okay? We can probably even take that further and further and further, looking at the different ideologies. But let's say 30 60 percent of the far left ideologies Trickle into the majority almost of what the left believes right now. We, we can go to the other side of things and say, what are the radical ideologies of the radical? Right. Right. Okay. Trump's been in president for the last, or has been president during Biden's entire term, and we're just waiting on him to raise his hand and say, it was me the whole time, guys. And rip off his mask like it's Scooby-Doo You know, that's like the radical, radical, right. QAnon people. Right. And obviously, you know, QAnon's been, been has some, some merit to some of its belief systems when it comes to the the child sex trafficking rings and things like that. There's obvious merit to that. But, but when we're talking about the fact that there's going to be Trump's. In charge of the real military and he, and I think we haven't heard much whispers of that over the last year or so, but for about the first year or two for, for Joe Biden's presidency, there was a serious group of small group of extremist conservatives, extremist conservatives who were thinking that Trump was going to come back and take over and be like, ha, it was me, right? I'm still president. And, and, you know, that's, that's pretty radical, but I would say maybe Four, three, 3%, maybe less than 3% of of people right now. Another radical ideology on the right might be what? I can't, it's hard to even think of any. I dunno that you shouldn't have drag shows in front of children Like what is, what is the radical rights belief systems that the government shouldn't you know, we didn't even get the freedom of speech when it comes to the left, right? Censorship. The, the, the right might think that there should be No. No. No censorship of speech, right? That's not even radical. So it's just hard to see. It's hard to see what is the what? And I'm open to the conversation. So send me a message. Let me know what is the radical ideas of the right. And maybe maybe we can start to have the percentage conversations I just had with the left, but it's so much easier. Okay, let's just go with abortion. Right abortion. Let's say every single person believes that there should be no ability to have any abortion. And that let's call that a A radical ideology within the right. Let's just say that just for argument's sake. What percentage of people do you think That are conservatives that hold that belief that just zero abortions for any reason whatsoever, regardless of age, regardless of circumstance, regardless of medical situations, maybe, maybe 10%, maybe 5%, I would think like Uh, and primarily made up of people who are highly religious and for religious reasons, not just ideological reasons. So it's just a weird conversation, right? The far left is far more of the left than the far right being part of the right, right? The percentages of those people are just so much lower than what we see. So the craziness... That the entire left is pretty crazy in their ideology because you get thrown out of the group if you don't agree with all of it. Right? So, anyways, there's your tangent on that. Where were we? I don't think it matters. Last comment says there was no lab leak, virus developed in Georgia and released worldwide through various means with various intensities. Not natural, not an accident, U. S. military operation under the auspices of the deep state. Hmm. That's an interesting one. Now, if you go back, I did a whole episode on the what is it called? The water in the water. What was it? That guy, Peter or something did a documentary about how he believed that it was some form of snake venom that was being released to people through the water systems, right? That was a pretty, that was a crazy, crazy idea. But there's a whole documentary on it. Let's see if I can remember what it was called. Let's go. COVID, Snake, Venom, Water, Documentary. And I did a whole podcast breaking this down. So, you can go back and listen to that. Watch the water. Watch the water. That's what it was. Hmm. Yeah, I believe that was, and this guy is the guy who did it. That he interviewed. This, what's the guy's name? Here he is. Pretty sure the guy's like a chiropractor or some shit. But that's a pretty crazy one that the water, the drinking water was being poisoned with snake venom. That was a, that was a pretty wild one, but, but interesting. And I believe if you go back and actually listen to it, there was, there was some interesting arguments within that. But anyways, maybe that's what they were discussing within that comment there. But wrapping that topic up, the CIA was apparently and allegedly, according to this whistleblower, Paying people not to say that it was a lab leak. And again, you have to ask yourself why. All right? In other news, Russell Brand has been accused of sexual assault. And as a result, his YouTube channel has been immediately demonetized without any actual trial, any hearing. Right? And this is somebody's income. So... YouTube blocks Russell Brand from making money from videos on his channel over sexual assault and rape allegations. Right? Something, something that's embedded in our law is innocent until proven guilty. Right? The guy from That 70s Show that Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis was just basically sticking up for in a letter. Was convicted of rape by two women convicted, right? We can demonetize his YouTube. Not sure he would have access to it anyways. But do you just get to as a company? D demonetized the platform people kill their income for allegations. Now, are you playing judge and jury? And how does that play into when somebody goes to court for these things? Right? If you're if you're saying that you believe this person is guilty and also who's making these decisions at YouTube and that. Different companies like this. Anyways, let's go ahead and read this article, which says YouTube has suspended advertisements on Russell Brand's channel in light of a slew of sexual assault and rape allegations made against the comedian as clips of his former wife, Katy Perry, have resurfaced the platform suspensions for violating its policy will still allow brand to. Upload videos, of course it will, it just won't give him money, but he will not profit from advertising. Meanwhile, footage has re emerged of the moment Brand ended his relationship with US singer Perrie by text message in 2011 following their 14 month marriage. Presenter Vanessa Feltz has also shared deeply offensive footage of Brand. Asking to sleep with her and her daughters. When she appeared on his chat show in 2006 and the late comedian, Sean Locke disclosed the reason he hated brand and the clip from the panel show eight out of 10 cats in 2014, explaining he had a fear for his he had a fear his daughters would bring home a man like brand one day. I don't see how that has any merit. Brand has vehemently denied the very serious criminal allegations and said his relationships were absolutely always consensual. So let's see if we can get maybe some of these videos. No, they're just going to send us to a big page of random stuff. All right. So it goes on to say a timeline key points. YouTube suspends monetization. Big brother co creator describes brand allegations as. depressing and BBC confirms removal of brands, content, brand episodes removed from C4 website. No evidence to suggest channel four bosses knew of brands alleged assaults and review into the timeline at BBC led to by director of editorial complaints. This was three hours ago. It says that who cares? That's a silly one. It says the allegations against Russell Brand over the weekend have got people examining the age of consent. Rightly so, that a 30 year old man would embark on a sexual relationship with a schoolgirl feels instinctively wrong to many of us. The woman in question, Alice, who has said that she now feels she was groomed by Brand, though he also denied all of the allegations, has called for consent law to be reviewed in light of her experience. The law enabled it, she told reporters. For the times Saturday night, it shouldn't be legal for a 16 year old to have a relationship with a man in their thirties. Now, most of us are comfortable with the idea that a 16 year old can consent to have sex with another 16 year old, that two teenagers can have a sexual relationship, but we start to feel iffy when there's an adult in the sexual relationship with a minor, as the gap age gap increases, so does our discontent or disquiet. That's not mere hand wringing or moralizing, and it's not about. Trying to deny young people their sexuality, it's because we understand implicitly, even when we can't articulate it, that an imbalance of power can affect consent. Okay, agreed. 16 year olds and 30 year olds shouldn't be having sex. Let's see this clip. Can I have it off with either you or your daughters, the answer's no, and I'm, no. It's terribly awkward when you're a guest on somebody else's show, particularly in a theatre which is full of great fans of, of the presenter, Russell Brand, so they all loved him, they were cheering him and egging him on, and I was in this unbelievably awkward position where you don't quite know what to do. Are you meant to pretend you think it's funny and laugh along? Are you meant to stand up and walk out in high dutch and, and, and look as if you're a spoilsport and a party pooper? You know, what are you supposed to do? But I know I was deeply offended then as I remain deeply offended now. Now that woman looked about in her 40s and not very attractive at the time. And now that's not to take away the seriousness of this clip, but I don't see that there being any merit to that of people just trying to smear him. Now, now something that's come out as a revolt result of this, you know, and something that there seems to be a lot of attention on Russell Brand right now, right now, Russell Brand speaking out consistently, consistently, consistently against the deep state against George Soros against the world economic forum. So To me, it would be no surprise that there's things coming back. Now, from 20, 30, 20 years ago, 10, 15, 20 years ago, that obviously have not been litigated. There's no, nothing going through the court system. So again, I'm not saying that I don't think a 30 year old and a 16 year old should have a sexual relationship. That's creepy. It's weird. It's gross. I, I don't know if I, you know, we just had the one side of that, but he seems to say that he. didn't do any of that. Now telling a woman in her 40s during a talk show, let me have a go at you or your daughters and she's 40 and maybe your daughter's 2025 or something like, okay, it's still nothing there. You know, I would love to see, you know, and here's a, here's a good quote that came from Reddit. That's pretty popular right now. It says, All start caring whether or not Russell Brand had some questionable sex a decade or two ago when the media starts caring what Bill Gates or Prince Andrew was doing on Epstein Island. Or when it starts naming the customers Ghislaine Maxwell was convicted of supplying trafficked minors to. Right. There seems to be a lot of emphasis, right? I'll start caring about Russell brand. When you start to show that you actually care about the victims, right? That's what this is saying here. Not, not, let's not diminish if there was some allegations. Cause I haven't read enough into them to say they weren't true or they were true or whatever. Let's just say, sure. There's allegations here, but what we know 100 percent besides the fact that Russell brand had, what seems like a still. Something that has not been convicted against him. And he still hasn't even gone to court for this. That doesn't seem like there's any charges. But there has been somebody who was supplying and trafficking hundreds, if not thousands, of underage women to Prince Andrew, to Bill Clinton, to Hollywood executives, to Hollywood elites, to... Everybody in power, and everybody knew about it. Oh, and also, so did the news companies who silenced the articles to come out. Right? Everybody knew about this, but nobody said anything. And still... They're protecting the lists today, you're going to tell me you're going to tell me that they raided Epstein's Island and found nothing of merit that they're releasing to the public about who was a part of this, how they did it, about what we're doing as a result of that, you're going to tell me they raided an entire island that was used specifically for track picking and found nothing, not a Bit of evidence, not a single strand of evidence that led them to convict somebody who was on that island doing those things. Bill Gates, like I said, Prince Andrew, Bill Clinton just person after person after person. And the list, you know, we've gone into that and the whole breakdown of the black list that came out or black book that came out from Epstein. So you can go back and listen to that to see who was all a part of it. But. It's pretty crazy. And, and so this article or this, this person posted and goes on to say that I'll care what about what one former US president is or isn't guilty of. When the media starts caring about what other former US presidents are or are not guilty of. And I'll care about a more powerful country invading a less powerful country when the media reports the conflict and its context in exactly the same tone. And with the degree, same degree of neutrality versus moral outrage as it uses when there's a more powerful country in question is the U S A. Until that day, the mainstream media and everyone who repeats its talking points on social media is not, but idle gossip and the sound of one hand clapping. Until the day I could not give less fucks about what mainstream media says any person did or didn't do, so... Well, that's not what it said. It says about who the mainstream media says any fucker fucked or didn't fuck. And so fuck the mainstream media. Let anyone... It fucks with tell them to fuck the fuck off. With its farce ial fuckery. Now, the top comment on this, and I don't disagree with this, is you are allowed to care about all of those things simultaneously. Right. I don't disagree with that. It definitely seems like you should, you know, If you care about people who are the victims, you should just care about them regardless, but it doesn't seem like it's obviously not the same level of situation here. Now, in light of these things coming up here, I'm actually going to skip. We'll maybe push off the Tim Ballard one to a different episode here, because we have a little bit more to go. And I have a little bit limited amount of time here. So the next one that we're going to move to is a Texas church experiments with. AI generated service and uses chat GPT for worship sermon and original songs to praise the Lord says the church said the experiment would be a one time event. And this comes from Fox news. Now, if this isn't the most dystopian thing you've ever heard of when it comes to religion, I don't know what it is. This is just So sci fi, weird, and cult y. It says, with artificial intelligence seemingly infiltrating every facet of our lives, one church decided to experiment with the technology for one of its services last week. The Violet Crown City Church, located in Austin, held an AI generated service on Sunday, describing the experiment as uncharted territory. Yeah, because you're starting a cult with... a robot at the head of it. This, and you're, you're, you're actually the, so here's a philosophical issue with this is that you're, you're taking the person who is, let's say the, the coding behind the AI and turning that into a deity, right? You're, you're giving it infinite amounts of power over people. When somebody gives their life to a God or a deity or a religion and says, I believe in you. I trust in you. I give you my life. I give you my faith. You know, faith is a faith is a. a tricky thing, right? Faith is, is now not always blind faith, but, but faith with with a little bit of suspicion is, is healthy, right? But faith, faith is a tricky thing. And if you give that faith to something who's, who's being, can be at any single point manipulated by man. Right? You're, you're giving religious potential. You're giving deity like power to something that is man itself, right? We cannot have man worshiping man. That's the problem that we saw with science during COVID science, right? It turned into a cult, right? There's no man who should be a deity and there's no artificial intelligence that should be a deity because what does that become other than the manifestation of the programming, right? Right? So this says. This Sunday, they said, we're entering somewhat uncharted territory by letting Chachibiti create the order of worship, prayers, sermon, liturgy, and even an original song from our 10 a. m. service, the church wrote on its official Facebook page. The purpose, the purpose is to invite us to consider the nature of truth and challenge our assumptions about what, what God can make sacred and inspired. The Church acknowledged such an experiment would be easy to write off, but encouraged its members to keep an open mind. Why not attend instead of an experience for yourself, the Church said, clarifying that this would be a one time experiment and not something we'll likely do again. Yeah, I hope not. The Church assanjed any worries that Skynet, a reference to the fictional AI, I'm not sure an AI can actually express the emotions of love and kindness and empathy, Chambers said. I think that we must practice love and express that. Not only feel it, but we must. Express it. Interesting. Now the comment on this was pretty sure God was not impressed with the vanity of that service. They wanted the creator of the entire universe to interact with a machine? It's like man saying, here, listen to this thing we created. God made man so he could interact and connect with man. Not so that man could make a machine and use it as his proxy. Yes. Agreed. Right, this is, if you think there is layers to reality, one of those layers being the higher, the higher reality, right, which is, let's call it heaven or we're, we're, we're God lives, right? And the layer that we're on being a lower dimension of reality, right? You cannot create, and you cannot, when, when somebody is creating a sermon, when somebody is writing a song, when somebody is deciding on what they do or do not want to talk about, If you believe in, in the faith of, of Christian, Christianity and religion, you believe that God is speaking through that person, right? God's not going to speak through an AI chatbot that was created by some Silicon Valley, woke, purple haired, ear ringed, Weirdo, right? Earrings like there's something wrong with earrings but it's all, you know, I, I pictured like 22 earrings on their head and gate big gauges. Right? But God's not going to speak through that person or at least through the coding that they wrote. I'm sorry. Right? So, so if you believe that that is of this reality that is of this realm and it's not going to be the real thing and all that opens up is a weird it. Alien based cult. Let's get into the good stuff. Alright, so the doctors, if you go back, the doctors in Mexico actually have come out and done testing on the alien bodies that were found in Peru. Now they claim that these were almost over a thousand years old when they were found and they were found in the ruins of I believe it wasn't wreckage, but they were just found and dug up by like archaeologists. So it says Mexican doctors have found no evidence of any assembly or manipulation of the skulls of the so called non human being remains that were presented to Mexico's Congress last week. Seemingly proven the remains were not human made. The scientists conducted a number of tests on the two specimens at the Neuer Clinic on Monday and live streamed the entire procedure. Wow, that's pretty cool. In the end, Jose Zels Benitez, the director of Health Sciences Research Institute and the secretary of the Mexican Navy offices, said the studies proved the alleged aliens belonged to a single skeleton and were not assembled with human objects. He also said his team found that one was alive, was intact, Was biological and was in gestation, pointing to large lumps inside the alleged E. T. 's abdomen, which suggested could be eggs. Whoa. I can affirm that these bodies have no relation to human beings, he previously claimed. The pair, which were allegedly unearthed in Cusco, Peru in 2017, have elongated heads with three fingers on each hand. Creepy. Super creepy. Especially when you look at the pictures of this MRI. Whoa, how are these pictures not out? That's crazy. Also, I do just want to say that nobody seems to give a fuck about the fact that they just showed alien corpses on live TV and then just did an autopsy on them with MRI machines and cat scans and came out with the results. I haven't seen a single person. I found this literally randomly on the New York Post. It says, but otherwise they appear humanoid in shape with two arms and two legs. Each my son. Said that they had strong light bones and no teeth, and had implants of ca, ca, ca, ca, cadmium and osmium, which is one of the scary, scariest elements on Earth. Also, one third of their d n A is unknown. He testified claiming that beings are not part of our terrestrial evolution. These specimens are not part of our evolutionary history on earth. They're not beings recovered from a U F O crash site. Instead, they were found in diatom. Minds and subc subsequently became fossilized, which is an algae. This is the first time it is presented in such a form. And I think there is a clear demonstration that we are dealing with non human specimens. They're not related to any other species in our world, but many have expressed skepticism about the discovery. For years, academics, archaeologists and scientists said that mummified remains, that UFO enthusiasts claim or aliens are generally just modified human bodies. And there's people looking at these pictures. There's picture after picture of these skulls. Oh my gosh. Could you imagine being in this room? How wild is that? The very first comment on this said, I am partly convinced they are not human and could be extraterrestrial. However, the DNA results will tell the tale. It should be easy to send a small sample of DNA to a reputable company. In fact, why not send one of the eggs as well? If it was alive at one time, that should be. The final proof of origin. Somebody else commented back to that person and said, is anyone going to believe anything coming from Mexico? Says they performed the same tests on Biden and got the same results. Oh, pretty crazy. All right. And last but not least on today's episode, we're going to dive into the Malaysia air three 70 conspiracy. This was posted eight days ago on conspiracy Reddit by additional underscore add 3796. And I've dabbled in this a little bit. I haven't read the whole thing, but it's pretty crazy. So this says, Hello, this is Ashton from Twitter, and I have been writing about the MH370 videos for the past month. They are real, leaked, military videos. I don't want you to believe me, I want to convince you with the facts. This isn't all of the facts, just some of the most compelling. The videos... Oldest Archive is a satellite stereoscopic video from the Regenik Dianon with an archive upload date of May 19th, 2024. The description reads, Received March 12th, 2014. Source, protected. Alright, let's go ahead and see and make sure that he doesn't have any prior posts on this that give us a... T. L. D. R. A little bit on his post. So this was, well, he replies a lot. Let's go to his posts. We're looking at an overview. All right. So the one that we had looked at was from eight days ago. Let's just see if he has any the real story of MH three 70 all pertinent evidence and theories. That was 70 or seven days ago. Facts and theories to help the investigation. And okay. So this Reddit looks like started eight days ago or 10 days ago. And it says proof the Northern coordinates are correct and facts. Hey guys, this is Ashton from Twitter. I've noticed a lot of things have gotten destroyed here. Let's see if he gives us a quick synopsis here. And he does not. So let's jump first to the one that he says is all evidence and theories. Okay. So, so my J the general consensus. Well, not general consensus because I haven't done a census, but the idea here is that the original story was, was wrong, that this is a conspiracy and that it didn't just evaporate into thin air or fall into the ocean as everybody thinks. So this says Ashton Twitterson here, many people ask for a comprehensive list. Of the evidence of the M H 370 video. So I delivered most people's immediate reaction will be that the MH 370 videos are stupid or impossible, but they line up with all the facts to date. Don't believe me or trust me, verify the evidence. The U S government made a huge mistake recording this event. There's no excuse they can use to deny it. If you want to destroy all credibility and world governments here is. Your unique opportunity. Each piece of evidence can be verified either visually in the video from works of the community or my own investigation research. If it's not on the list, I either haven't verified it or don't find it to be credibly linked to the investigation. At this time, I'm limited in images that can be used or I would add more. I only put links and sources when it's a contentious point. When the time comes, all those who contributed will be giving credit. Quick disclaimer, they said This is not Q Anon. This is not to distract from Trump or Biden. This is not an alien invasion. This is not a hoax, misinformation, or disinformation. There are ufology elements, but that does not mean it is the explanation. This is the power of the community used to tell the story of the greatest conspiracy of all time. Is this the greatest conspiracy of all time? Note, I don't want to talk to any mainstream media. They'll never tell the truth. I'll talk to any alternative media or Tucker Carlson, Bill Maher, Joe Rogan. If these three can be convinced, I believe the world can be. Interesting. All right, so let's see if we can start with the theories, because I feel like he could have written this better to give us a brief synopsis first. But essentially. Oh, so that's what that video was. Okay, so this is showing that the Malaysia Air 370 was being circled by three unidentified objects in this crazy weird orbs all surrounding it and rotating. I did see this video. And then there's a zap, which is a cold event in the thermal because this was being picked up by thermal imaging. The zap accurately illuminates the clouds in the background and the foreground. All right. So. Let's go through this full. Let's go through this full deep dive. All right. So let's just go back to the top here because now it's starting to make a little bit more sense to me. There's a video that was circulating, which was showing and I'll pull it up here for you guys. So you can watch it if you're on YouTube with me here or on rumble or on the sub stack. This is the web archived video. Okay. Now, again, this comes from 2014 back when this airliner went missing. And here's a video. That they're saying is credible evidence of the Malaysia air showing, and here's my cursor showing there's the orb. There's three orbs that fly right around it in a crazy, crazy quick way that has no, wow. And they're, they're surrounding it like almost in a symmetrical triangle, rotating back and forth and in sync. Almost completely in sync and then rotating and turning back around and all surrounding this airliner, the same airliner that went missing suddenly back in 2014 and they go faster and faster and faster and faster, see if, and then disappears, what completely disappears. So we need to verify obviously the legitimacy of this video, but a lot of people seem to think it's legit. That was crazy. Okay. So one more time at the point where it disappears, the rotating, rotating, rotating, rotating, and it's gone big flash. And the airliner is just completely gone after being surrounded by these three orbs. Now there's a second video that comes from this, and we'll see what this shows us. That was the one that I saw, I believe. It says capture airliners and UFOs, UAV. And here's the thermal imagery. Alright, so here's the aircraft flying. Now why is a UAV this close to this airliner is a better question with thermal imaging. There's an orb, one orb, two orbs. Rotating, rotating, and leaving a thermal trail behind them, which is interesting. Oh, they're perfectly circling when you see the trail around them. Whoa, that's so weird. Super weird. And let's see if it shows it disappearing. Whoa, and it's Gone, dude, if this is real, and this if this is Malaysia air and the whole time I remember this, this was like, this was as big as the Titanic submarine situation. Like all those, you know, the three billionaires, this was an entire airliner just gone, gone. And I believe there was some high profile people on this airliner. But yeah, They we were looking for this for days and days and days went by and days went by and it should have been out of fuel and maybe they they landed here and maybe they didn't and maybe we just haven't their transponder went off whatever it was if this is the airliner and this is real this is one of the craziest conspiracies ever okay Now I'm in. Now I'm in. Alright. So, we got the background now. Filmed in 2014 with technology from 2014. Spy satellite videos, presumed from USA 229 is the earliest archived source. Received March 12, 2014. 3D stereoscopic video, technically a third video, which means we need two satellites in close proximity and on the same orbital trajectory. Satellite perspective changes eight times as do the coordinates, with coordinates visible in six of them showing us the location and direction of travel, south and east. A thermal layer of MQ 1C Grey Eagle posted by Rejiknion received, I don't know what the hell that's supposed to be a name or something received June 5th of 2014. And cameras on the equipment are made. For filming these events, it says this the thermal layer on a specialized electro infrared camera on the MQ one secret Eagle matches the mission purpose for this S I B R S and S I G I N T tracking boats and planes, electronic signals, monitoring intelligence and battlefield awareness, alternate sources and higher quality exists that point to none of these users being the original source. Maybe we can see if these are the same exact videos and higher resolution, but this is two minutes long. So I wonder maybe it's, it looks slowed down a little bit. That's probably why it's two minutes. I want to see it disappear like that. Slow motion. Gone. Whoa, that's wild. Okay it's a speculation. The original source may have come from a private forum or left on the dark web to be found. Videos show coordinates in them that change, but not when the mouse moves. Videos show satellite designations presumed to be N r o l 22 due to seeing 93 and thus ruling out threes. Not sure what that's supposed to mean. Satellite vis video explained by remote terminal access mouse drift. Explained by a JPEG wheel track ball that does not have the click activated screen capture of terminal running at some resolution. 30 frames per second. Citrix remote terminal running at default on 24 frames per second. Okay, very technical. So they're trying to figure out where did this video come from because you see on the screen a mouse going back and forth on top of it over top of the video. So I think that's what they're trying to do here. Remotely navigating around a very large resolution video playing at. Eight frames per second, or is that six? Six frames per second. Okay, so they're just trying to figure out where did this video come from? Plane is making a left hand turn and descending consistent with a circle formation consistent with capabilities of a 777 to 200. Plane's altitude is low based on how close they are to the cumulus cloud formations. Okay, true. There's a heat signature near the center bottom half of the plane. Yes, also true. There's an exhaust smoke coming from the plane, which is likely too low for contrails. Three orbs approach. The plane seemingly not affected by gravity. Yeah, that's that's what I said. It was just moving. It didn't seem to follow Newton's laws. Like it's just moving around in a way that our aircraft absolutely could not. Does the orbs have cold trails that are in front of the orb leading the orb? Yes. Saw that. Speculation. Orbs may be changing the pressure of the atmosphere or absorbing energy from it. Orbs entered a lock formation and begin a pattern and change patterns. Wow, they really broke down this pattern this way the way that they were rotating. Very interesting. And the two of them almost intersect and then change their formation and then go perfectly in sync. Perfectly in sync. It says the orb's pattern encircles the plane over time. The orbs may not be visible to the human eye. Both cameras are infrared. Huh, interesting. A zap occurs as the orbs bend and move towards the plane. The zap is a cold event in the thermal, and the zap accurately illuminates the clouds in the background and the foreground. Huh. So was this at night? The plane completely disappears after the zap, including the plane's visible trail. The MQ 1C is cropped out of the satellite video, just out of view. The user closes the window after the plane disappears, indicating this was not recorded in real time. It requires knowledge of classified military systems. Person who recorded or leaked these videos is likely in prison. How would a hoaxer know? They would never find a plane. Why this is M H three 70. Okay. Good question. How do we know that this is the plane, right? Is this says that it's the only missing seven 77. There was no debris field found official flight path. Has it running out of gas? Because there's nowhere else for it to go and the official search searched everywhere along the final ping art and along the flight path even the Nicobar Islands area, right? So the perfectly along this flight path perfectly around the time that it was flying and it's the exact aircraft type says the thermal matches the exact silhouette of a 777. Okay, yep, which is overlaid at the top of this image here. The color tone matches that of Malaysia Airlines. And satellite coordinates put it on the flight path of MH370 around... 640 Nicobar Islands, which is the smoking gun. Note, this is the suspected location of the turn into the South Indian Ocean. It has an imagery around that. It says NROL 22, released in 2006, is presumed to be a relay satellite due to its molnia. Orbit and clear view of the satellite that took the video, the smoking gun USA two 29 at the right location. Time apparent angle with a sister debris satellite capable of taking stereoscopic video at six 40 UTC. So it's just verifying that there was something in this location at that time that could have taken this video and says propose of. Signal intelligence and space based infrared systems is to track airplanes like this. Interesting, it shows a Lockheed Martin space based infrared system. And then it says the U. S. military had to have tracked MH370. We've proven they had the satellites in the area. US military confirmed the provided data to the intelligence community to help solve the mystery of MH370 and the freedom of information act about the DSP detection of the impact of 370 was ignored. Goes on to show the flight path. The pilot says good night. MH370 at 5 19 UTC at 17 21. 521 UTC MH370 disappears from all civilian radar due to both 8S, B and A cars being shut off. Captain Blelly suggests whoever was in command of the aircraft had intentionally achieved this by disconnecting all four electronic Electrical generators and APU. The radar says the plane makes impossible altitude changes from 5, 000 feet to 55, 000 feet. The radar loses the plane, but tracks an object they believed to be the plane as the satellite system resets three minutes and a log on request happens around 1724 plane changes directions. When the plane gets over Penang, the copilot cell phone pings, huh? The last Malaysian. Radar in between 1815 and 1822, 200 miles West by Northwest of Penang. Hmm. Very interesting. So it's showing basically the flight logs and the the pings of information that was being sent out from it. It says the witness interesting. So it's showing her blog post, Catherine T. It says the reported facts, their timing, and their identified geometrical relative position provided by Miss T are coherent, providing confidence in her reporting. So let's see this blog post while that's loading. She says, I thought it was coming to land. I felt it was traveling slowly. The aircraft was probably flying in L2 between 2000 and 100, 000 feet, held same tack for five minutes. The aircraft had considerably descended. from the first or from the first second of observation until the accidental change of tack. I saw that what looked like black smoke behind the orange glow, which resembled a contrail, but black, but I couldn't see any fire flames or anything like that. I just saw a plane glowing orange. Whoa. This comes from chat GPT, which has gases in the atmosphere, particularly oxygen. Nitrogen can glow orange under influence of electromagnetic effects, ionization, and other electron or energetic processes. The Aurors are a prime example of a phenomenon. Interesting. Says the glowing plane did not have any navigation lights. Alright, as it moved behind the boat, I could see the shape very clearly, which was a passenger plane. Here is the blog post. Which, quite lengthy. But maybe we'll have to send that out in the sub stack. Hmm. Interesting. So this woman says that she saw Malaysia Air right around the time that it disappeared. And wrote a blog post about it. It says other pertinent information. It says, my impression of the hall was that it was monocolor. I assume light matte gray. I doubted my sanity at the time. The plane circles around the boat counterclockwise from the Southeast. Hmm. The silence is sinister was the last tweet. It says other pertinent information to fake passengers using stolen passports that changed their appearance. What one possible passenger who bypassed security. And an SOS at 243 intercepted and reported only in Chinese news, which is a plane attempting emergency landing. Trump leaked a similar satellite photo in 2019 of USA 224, which launched in 2011, same year as USA 229. And then it says debunking the suicide myth. Everyone stands up for him, including officials and his wife. 18, 000 flight hours. Coworkers loved him. So it's talking about the pilot. No indication of suicide intent in the flight path. Had a huge custom simulator. Not standard model. Zahari's flight simulator had been used to pilot two data points in the southern Indian Ocean. Or to plot. And route found on the simulator closely matches MH 150 route to Jeddah with a diversion at the end of the South Pole. He was rostered to fly MH 150, impossible to disconnect all four electrical generators. Flying over his hometown is silly. It was an emergency and people would kick down the door before they would get knocked out. Depressurization is slow. In most emergency scenarios, the plane is not going to last until it runs out of fuel. Now it's going on to debunk the fact that the actual of the debris, no debris found by the official search or above or below water. It says the debris found years later was not consistent with barnacle growth. Only the Flay Perrin was matched with a non unique serial number. One person claims to have found 10 plus pieces, which was featured and contested on a Netflix documentary. Oh, excuse me. No one is allowed to inspect it. Okay. So it's trying to debunk it addressing debunks of the videos. Clouds do move just slowly. So it's just going over some of the things that people are saying about that. Hmm. Interesting. Plane disappears. So it says teleportation. Plane disappears from space time instantly. Intermediate black hole event. Which was it being cold? A witness sees a possible red shifted glow or orange glow Using a plane because it's in open space, huh? Teleportation may be to hide the plane Family's phones were proven ringing on Chinese TV for days Impossible if underwater or in another dimension, huh? Traveling forward in time doesn't break causality But traveling backward in time does See time Dilation says the science wormholes have been shown to be theoretically possible by at least three scientific papers They all show that exotic material is not necessary One paper argues a thin shell could be used to safely transport an object outside of space time Description of an intermediate black hole is consistent with the zap we see in the videos And one paper discusses needing to remove unwanted particles from the area The orbs may have been super conductive the orbs could be cleaning the area in Deucing the mouth of the wormhole and or acting as the barrier for passage. And there's a real patent for a magnetic vortex wormhole generator. What the fuck? No way. Let's pull that one up. Patents. google. com. A patent number is. U. S. 20030197093A1, and I will include this in the sub stack as well, because now we need a sub stack on this one. So this invention, which is called Magnetic Vortex Wormhole Generator. What? This invention relates to a magnetic vortex generator, which has the ability to generate negative mass and a negative spring constant, which, according to Einstein's general theory of relativity, is required in order to create a stable wormhole between R space and hyperspace. Whaaaaat? Very interesting, above my scientific pay grade. But I will definitely be reading through this another time. And maybe I'll highlight some stuff for you when I throw it in the sub stack. Here's the article that came from the last day of Malaysia airline passengers with stolen passports. Okay, interesting. Could these be the aliens? Alright let's wrap this up here. It says Diego Garcia, 1, 700 military and 1, 500 civilian personnel. Space Force has 86, 000 total servicemen and women. Okay. Sighting of a passenger plane 50 miles north of the base flying low in the early morning. I wish he would have put this together better. Pilot had Diego Garcia in his simulator. Not open to commercial aircraft. Enough space for a 7 77. So wait, what is this? Diego Garcia? Is this supposed to be like a a military base or something? What is Diego Garcia? Diego Garcia Base. It's gotta be a military base. Diego Garcia is a British atoll in the Indian Ocean. It is an island of the British Indian Ocean Territory, an overseas territory of the United States Kingdom or the United Kingdom. It is a militarized atoll just south of the equator in the central Indian Ocean and the largest of 60 small islands. Huh. Okay. Interesting. Interesting. Because there was a theory that it landed there, I guess. Okay. Alright, moving on here. Not open to commercial aircraft, has enough space for a 777, has underground facilities with a black vault Freedom of Information Act showing it may be a CIA black site. Message from Philip Wood saying he had held captive with a picture of EXIF data, placing it at Diego Garcia. Tens of millions. To black construction for dredging and other activities. Lockheed Martin contract for upgrading power and water photos of Diego Garcia, Facebook that look like the crew seems like the new area 51 Strava heat map and the small boat Harbor outside of the yacht club seems very active. Do D reassessed privacy's policies for the troops after Strava revelations in 2018. Hmm. Theories and speculation. The reason to do this must be large enough to warrant the risk unlikely to be about money. Shadow war for control of this technology, 20 semiconductor scientists on board. Whoa. So saying that basically the reason that they would have done this was that there was 20 semiconductor scientists on board Malaysia air and they wanted to either remove them, kill them, whatever. Or transport them to this base. Says video suppressed to hide hyper advanced technology not known to the public. Interesting. Video suppressed to hide non human intelligence. Filming had intent. UAV is too slow to catch a 777 and US 229 is only in position for minutes. So the only reason it got filmed, they're saying, is because they wanted to see this, and then somebody leaked it. Primary narratives. Ones with the most evidence, and we're getting towards the end of this. Set the satellite computer to stick to IOR 30 minutes prior to takeoff to make the plane difficult to trace. Three fake passengers possibly in on the hijack. Pilots and crew may be in on it. Flight changed to the last minute. Same data of Diego. 1721 UTC event is electromagnetic jamming plane is flown to Penang as a waypoint and for flies directly towards the coordinates. U. S. military equipment is waiting to teleport the plane to Diego Garcia. Deals are made with the crew and passengers, countries of the passengers. Maldives sighting just north of Diego Garcia in the early morning, Philip Wood resists, where is he now, witness protection. Who is Philip Wood? Debris later thrown in the ocean. Crew lookalikes found on Facebook at Diego Garcia. Motive is control of the very technology we see in the video. And the last portion of this says, UFO emergency event. All right, it says 1721 event disconnects all four electrical generators and APU transponders similar to what an EMP or electromagnetic interference may do damage to the plane will cause it to ground quickly depressurization may be slow fire could have started lithium batteries could be a source of fuel or interest in the UFO angle copilot cell phone pings over Penang. Indicating calling for help. Next logical place to land is in the water. Other narratives, USO, UFO teleports the plane to another dimension or location. Ooh. And motive of the cover up is to hide non human intelligence and technology from the world. Whoa. Decoy plate theory. Second 777 used to spoof the pings and track trick in Marsat. This event was to gain control of patents for some nanochips related to the Rothschilds. What? This event was to gain control of patents for some nanochips related to the Rothschilds. Huh. UFO is saving the passengers from their own doom. UFO is attracted to the lithium batteries, or the governments are working with the NHI for shadowy purposes. Interesting. That is a crazy one. Crazy one. He says, submission statement, the MH370 videos are the largest verifiable conspiracy of all time. This has been a cover up by multiple nations and multiple individuals. This conspiracy has the potential to break the minds of many, as well as destroy confidence in world governments. And this came from the same individual who said, Thank you for contributing, supporting, and getting the message out. Wow. That's a... Crazy one, crazy one. That's one of my most favorite conspiracies that we've gone over. All right. Wonderful. I hope you got something out of that.

This is The Digital Story Podcast #905, July 25, 2023. Today's theme is "Why Take-and-Bake When You Can Eat Right Now?." I'm Derrick Story. Opening Monologue RAW files remind me of take-and-bake pizza. You have all the ingredients, but you don't get to eat a slice until you take it home, fire up the oven, and wait 40 minutes. Not exactly instant gratification. Jpegs, on the other hand, are piping hot and ready to go. No waiting. No baking. Seems like no contest. So why do so many of us torture ourselves with take-and-bake? I'll explain how to have your pizza and eat it too on this week's TDS Podcast. I hope you enjoy the show.

Welcome back to another episode of the Hybrid Ministry Show. As always, I am your host, Nick Clason, pumped and jacked, and thrilled and excited to be with you. Hey, welcome. You're in my office. Um, and in this episode we're gonna be doing something quite a bit different. What I'm gonna be doing is I'm gonna be giving a tutorial, um, from start to finish on how I edit a, uh, one of our teaching videos. So I've told you before we do talking head teaching style videos. So I'm gonna show you what I do in Adobe per, uh, Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Premiere Pro. Um, and maybe After Effects, it just depends, probably not. Um, and so I want to give you kind of a run through tutorial Crash course on how I do what I do, um, as well as just let this be a training kind of video that lives in perpetuity, um, on Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Premiere Pro. Nick Clason (00:57): So let's go ahead and let's dive in and get this thing started. I'm gonna be sharing with you my screen. I'm also going to be sharing, uh, my video, um, just like of me talking. If you're listening to this. Um, it may get a little technical and it may be a little bit hard to follow. So just know that the entire episode is on YouTube with a video tutorial. And so you may listen to this, um, but go back to YouTube for actual like reference of it. So without any further ado, let's dive in. Hey, before, actually, before we dive in, why don't you go, uh, check out YouTube, check out TikTok, check out Instagram, um, and link in the show notes for transcripts as well as a link to my 100% completely free ebook, how to Make a TikTok from Start to Finish. Now, without any further ado, let's dive in. Rending Your Video Nick Clason (01:48): All right, so what you're seeing here is, um, an Adobe Pro, um, file that I just edited. Um, I'm gonna start from scratch. So, um, we are in, uh, start the party week three. Um, I already got this thing started a little bit and so I'm gonna take you into my started project. Um, but if I hadn't, um, this is my original footage, uh, not that this is my original footage and these are my original audio files. Uh, just dropped those in. Um, I had two audio files cause we were using two microphone sources to get it going. Um, I ran those together and then I just rendered it out as a singular one, which is this one right here. So, um, that's basically where we are. And I think the only other thing I did was make like cuts, um, which I'll show you how I do all that stuff anyway, so, um, let's make sure this gets saved in the right spot. So we're gonna save it. Shared drive FC students. This is just my folder structure and my shared folder structure. Um, messages are in social media messages. The year, the number of the series, this is week three. And so we're just gonna call this stp. So start the party three, underscore two Nick Clason (03:12): Oh man. And all this stuff got lost. I think this might be from an old file that was stuck in there. Um, I'm gonna link it anyway though. So it's in Google Drive, shared drive. It looks like most of that stuff was in camp. See if I can search it in here. File enough. Wait, I need to do, I need to do these, so I need to do, um, I need to go here. All right, now let's try it. Do those. So I need to go to Google Drive, share, drive, trips, camp. Okay, I found a bunch of 'em and then those are downloads. So those are gonna be gone and that's okay. I don't need those cuz those are other things. This one right here is in my, a local file that I use, like personal stuff and I've been moving things around cause I just lost a bunch of data. So it's in here. It's in here. This admin social, not that one. Nick Clason (04:45): Uh, Nick Clason (04:45): There we go. Search. Okay, there's that. And then this Hex C is in this shared drive of marketing. Where is it? Marketing? Um, branding. No, it's in marketing. Where's the marketing folder? Why is it gone? Starts with an M. Nick Clason (05:28): Hmm. Nick Clason (05:30): That's okay. I don't think I need it. So offline, offline, offline, offline. Okay. All right, there we go. Sorry, sorry, sorry for that. So here, yeah, so I got this thing started. Nick Clason (05:44): In this video we're gonna talk about how you can get invited to every single party ever. Nick Clason (05:53): All right. So, um, that's that. And then I'm gonna take you over here to Photoshop, which is where, uh, I'm gonna get some fo some things going. Um, these are, this is a template. So I've used this before for other videos, so I kind of build out the template. So let me show you what I've done in the past. So this is my, um, bible verse template. And then this is my like anything else template, um, that I've been using for this series. So if you hit, uh, command minus, that'll zoom you out in Photoshop. Um, command Plus will zoom you in those things. Um, just help you see the things a little bit better. Uh, if I'm over here on the left hand side, I'm using the selection tool. Um, so I can select certain layers that are already created. Um, so I'm selecting this, uh, font right here or yeah, this right here. Uh, but I don't have that font right now. So what I actually need to do is I actually need to go install it. I have them all backed up. I'm just, I just switched to like a new computer and so that's why like nothing is in here. Um, fonts. Okay, so I'm gonna open my font book and I'm just gonna drop over here off screen. All these Gotham fonts that I need. Nick Clason (07:19): I think Hope did that work? I don't know. Let's search. Nope. Oh, there we go. Uh, keep both. I think that should, Nick Clason (07:36): Yeah, there we go. Now it's in there. Okay, so you'll see right here. Now they're all in there. So back over here. We're just gonna cancel cuz now it should read it. Yep. So if I'm over here on the left, I can grab the entire font. Like if I pick the top selection tool here, I can grab the entire font, uh, block thing and move it all the way around. If I go down here to text, I can edit the text. Um, and so I'm gonna have different verses and stuff like that. If I go over here, I can edit that text, right? But if I wanna move the whole thing, I can move the whole thing. Um, so back over here in Adobe Premiere Pro, I got this, it goes straight, start in, Nick Clason (08:14): Find out. Nick Clason (08:15): It goes straight on into the title sequence there. So I'm gonna take you here. Nick Clason (08:27): Nope, nobody ever likes to be the person left out. Nick Clason (08:35): All right, so let's see what we got. Nick Clason (08:37): One time I moved away from a church that I used to work. Nick Clason (08:40): So all these photos are old photos that I drummed up from before. So let's see where this video has us right now. This single Nick Clason (08:48): Fall, we went to a camp called Camp Tesa in Brixton and me and we called the retreat the Recharge. Nick Clason (08:56): All right, so in Adobe Premiere Pro, if you click the space bar, that's your keyboard shortcut for play. Uh, you can move this around here in the sequence, um, to go to different spots, um, on your keyboard. If you look at the J K L and I, it's sort of in the shape of uh, arrows. And so J K L I J is back, K is down, I is up Ellis forward. One of my favorite hacks for that is once you get it playing, you can click L and it'll make it go quicker. You can hit J and it'll make it go backwards. You can also hit the arrow button to go frame by frame. So right, left. Nick Clason (09:43): So that's how I go real slow. So that being said, if I wanna do any sort of overlay videos, which I'm going to like you see right here, I did these photos, I overlaid them. I also have presets that have them come in. Um, I'll tell you what I'll do, I'll drop the link. Um, I'll drop the link, but I'm first gonna make a note to myself so that I don't forget to do it. Um, but I'm gonna drop the link to the presets, um, in the show notes. So that's not the right thing I need to do. Oh five three Adobe. Uh, there it is new. This is just so I don't forget about you guys. Um, presets. So in Adobe Premiere Pro there's little, uh, motion presets that you can use. I use one, I use one pack. There's like 50 of 'em. Nick Clason (10:32): They look like this position in position out. Rotate out, rotate in scale and scale out. I use those pretty much all the time. And I'll often pair those with like a, an audio. So if you see right here as this one comes in, it's got a little audio down here on this audio track. So you got audio track one, audio track two, audio track three. You got video track one, video track two video track three. And you can do an unlimited amount up, uh, in video and an unlimited amount down in audio. So as I play it, this church, I got that little whoosh sound coming in. I didn't do that for the rest of them cause I didn't want it to be distracting. Our would come. So they're just coming in one by one as I'm explaining this story. So Nick Clason (11:09): Before I Nick Clason (11:10): Moved and then here this cut, I hit, uh, I cut it with the razor tool over here. Um, also shortcut keyboard, shortcut C, we'll switch it to the razor tool and then v we'll switch it back to this selection tool. Um, and so then once I click v I just drag the, the thing I wanna do position out, just drag it onto there, do other things and then it rotates out. Or not rotate but moves out. So back to editing. Uh, now that you've gotten all that little quick overview, let's edit the fall. Nick Clason (11:41): We went to a camp called Camp Temsa in Brooks and Indiana. Nick Clason (11:45): We, I'm gonna speed it up a little bit called the Nick Clason (11:47): Retreat, the recharge retreat. That's awesome. And so I leave that church, I'm going to another one that same weekend, not in the same place. And because I followed both my old church and my buddy's church on Instagram, I see that they're both on a retreat. That's interesting. Both that church and church are both on a retreat together, but on the same weekend. That's interesting. Wait, in Brooks, Indiana, hold on a minute. They're together. When I began to notice was that these two churches came together instead of calling it recharge retreat, they called it a lifeline retreat, something like that. I dunno, but I felt so left out there. I was sitting at home thinking that used to be me. I used to be the one there and now I'm home with my kids, with my new church man if I aren't there. And I felt incredibly about that. When it comes to a part, often feel like very cut and dry, very binary, right? Like there are insiders. Nick Clason (12:30): All right, I'm gonna cut that. I don't like what I said there. So I'm gonna see if I can cut around that Nick Clason (12:35): Often feel like very cut and dry to a party. Nick Clason (12:40): So I don't need that much space there. So when it comes to a party, so I hit C to cut it V to select it, and I'm just gonna hit the backspace button and now it's gone. I'm gonna drag this in so it's next to it Nick Clason (12:52): Like very cut. And often feel like Nick Clason (12:59): When it comes to a party can often feel like Nick Clason (13:03): Very cut and dry, very binary. Nick Clason (13:07): Let's see if I can get all that out of there. So I'm just gonna drag this over. So C to V, let's see how it plays Nick Clason (13:13): Often feel like, right, like there are insiders, Nick Clason (13:17): I'm just gonna do feels like there's insiders. So drag, drag, drag Nick Clason (13:21): Parts often feel like insiders and there are outsiders. Nick Clason (13:26): So like Nick Clason (13:27): Inside Nick Clason (13:28): I need to get this to zoom in. So what I'm doing, one of my cuts, I zoom in, zoom out, zoom in, zoom out. So if you see that, if you're watching on YouTube, this right here, um, I click on it up up here in the effects controls under motion. Um, I have my position and it's scaled at 1 28. So when I'm here, this is at one 10. So this cut here needs to go to 1 28. Just type that in, hit enter. And now I have those cuts Nick Clason (13:55): Insiders. And there are, Nick Clason (13:58): And that just took care of that cut right there. Now because I did all that, I got all this stuff back here that is cropped out, so I need to connect it. There you go. It's connected Nick Clason (14:14): Today. One of Jesus' friends, a guy named Matthew recorded this story out of the life of Jesus. Here's what it says. Nick Clason (14:23): All right, so now I'm gonna do a Bible verse. So I have this stored somewhere. I think it's in curriculum, Nick Clason (14:36): Yeah, for me. Uh, is that Darren's? That might be Darren's. I just need to figure out the verse reference. I'm gonna figure out the verse reference. I'm gonna go put it into Photoshop. So thank you. I got a new computer. So everything's brand new. Yeah, that's Darren. So I need to figure out mine. I think mine actually might be my own personal Google drive. So I'm gonna search start. Yeah, it's there. So start the party three there. It's um, Matthew nine 10 in the nlt. So I'm gonna go to bible gateway.com. I'm gonna switch it to nlt so that what I say version wise matches what is on screen. And now as I go back over here, one of Nick Clason (15:21): Jesus's friends, a guy named Matthew, recorded this story out of the life of Jesus. And here's what it says. It says later, Matthew invited Nick Clason (15:31): Jesus. Okay, so I'm gonna go here into Photoshop, click my text tool, uh, command a, highlights that all, command v paste it. I wanna make it, um, all caps like I had before. We're gonna keep it uniform as best I can remember. Um, I just changed it down to a hundred. Um, and then I'm in Matthew nine 10. So now I'm gonna hit command shift save. Um, and that saves the full Photoshop file. So then I'm here in my, uh, you know, social media messages 20 23, 0 6, 0 3. So in the oh three folder, this is message number three, I'm gonna click new folder, p s d. Um, and then I'm gonna save it as oh oh one verse so that I know that, um, file oh oh one is a verse save. So now it's saved as a Photoshop file. So this is why I like Adobe Premier Pro, um, because of its integration with Photoshop. Nick Clason (16:33): So back over here in my actual finder, I'm gonna navigate to the folder. I just saved that to p s d oh oh one verse. I'm gonna drag the entire file here into the project bin on this left hand side. Drop it in. And I have three, four options. I can merge all layers, merge layers, individual layers or sequence. I'm gonna do individual layers. Um, and now it'll drop this folder. And now I got every individual layer that I had in Photoshop. Now I'm not gonna use all of them, but I am gonna animate them. And I wanna show you what I did in previous videos. So if you go back to the first video in this series, um, it's gonna take a second to come in from uh, Google Drive downloading. But I'm gonna, I'm gonna look at what I did a for myself to remember how I animated everything, um, so that I can be consistent all the way across all these videos. Nick Clason (17:31): Um, I don't, you don't have to do that. I like to do that for every series. I like to have like the same animations, um, so that it has like uniform, same backing track, which um, out here I found this file, um, on motion array, uh, as song for the background. So I have this right here. This, uh, audio layer is my tech, my my speaking audio layer. This layer down here is my, uh, audio, um, backing track, all music. So anyway, um, oh you know what? This might not open in QuickTime because of yeah, cuz I'm already using QuickTime. You know what, it's on YouTube so let's go check it out. So we're gonna go to YouTube, um, cross Creeks, dude. And let's see videos. Here it is. Nick Clason (18:39): People seem so full of life and others seem, oh, celebrate the value of others. And Nick Clason (18:49): So as I scroll through here, I'm just scrubbing through to find the text. Here it is. So if you'll notice I made a cut and the verse, Nick Clason (19:06): Cause he said it in his own words, the Nick Clason (19:09): Thief. So the verse in this little banner thing with the hello summer, it's all already there. So what I'm gonna do is I'm gonna go to this Roberto Nixon. That's the, that's the background. Nick Clason (19:22): But let's, let's see. Remind myself what I did over here. I had rectangle two as like a backdrop to make it blacker. So go to rectangle two. So put those together. So right, this is uh, as the layers build up, bottom, top. Um, so there's my two backgrounds. If I just hold the mouse down, highlight them both, then I can move them both longer in the sequence. Um, so there's the background. Uh, let's see. This right here is titled rectangle one. So I'm gonna go back over here and grab a rectangle one, put it right there in line with it and drag it there to go the whole distance. Then I'm gonna get my verse reference Matthew nine 10, put it there. And then I'm missing that little hello summer icon that I made. So I'm gonna click on that and it's called Hello Color Official Colors. So go to Hello Color, pull that right here and boom. And it's covering up Matthew. So I'm just going to change the order there. Pull Hello, color, make Hello Color, be below Matthew. So there, okay, so now all my things are in. So right here on this today Nick Clason (20:48): One of Jesus's friends, a guy named Matthew. Nick Clason (20:52): Now I don't say it yet. So what I did was I held down shift and clicked them all to highlight them. I'm just gonna move it, what Nick Clason (20:59): Of this story out of the life of Jesus. And here's what it says. Nick Clason (21:03): So when I say, here's what it, I'm gonna go right here, where, here's what it says. So I hit c I got my razor tool, I cut the thing there, now I'm hitting V to go back to my selection tool and I'm just gonna highlight all these layers, bring 'em back over. So now it's there. So then I need to bring in the actual text, which I believe starts with later Matthew. So I'm gonna listen to it and line it up when it comes in. So Nick Clason (21:27): Here's what it says Nick Clason (21:29): Right there later, Matthew, boom, I'm gonna have that, um, position in, lemme go back and see what I did over here. Nick Clason (21:40): Let see, Nick Clason (21:41): It looks like it was a smooth transition and I just know that thief. Yeah, I just know that from experience of what these different ones look like. So I'm going over here position in smooth left. Okay, that came from a file. The sound came from a file over here under social media. Nope, nope, it came under my drive. Uh, social, this is my old church, Parkview. See if it's gonna, there it is. Sound effects. Uh, I've been transferring a lot of data, so it may not be all in here. Let's see if I can go, let's see if it's in actual Google Drive. So I'm gonna switch to my work profile, shared drive notes. It's in my drive. Passport, Nick Clason (22:49): Social. Nick Clason (22:56): It's called sfx. There it is. I'm gonna download that sucker. Um, so now it's in my downloads folder. I'm gonna take it out of there and I'm gonna bring it here so that's all in the same spot. And then I'm gonna make sure as I go into Adobe Premiere Pro, I'm gonna pull it from that same folder so that when it tries to open it later, it, it knows where it was. So I drop it in my thing. And now if I double tap on this sound, it's gonna pull it up here in this source tab up here at the top. Okay, so there's all these different, um, sounds ready. Like, so I'm just gonna find one that, like, that one sounds kinda weird. Nick Clason (23:50): That one's good. So I'm gonna take this, uh, bar down here and I'm gonna shrink it so that I can get a closer view of it. So if I hit I that starts, that stands for N and then if I toggle the bar right here, right past it and click o, then I can choose to grab either the video or the audio. I don't have a video so it's only audio. So I'm gonna drag the audio in here and I'm gonna line it up. And then what I like to do, again, I'm gonna drag this little bar so I can zoom in a little bit. I like to get it right, you see where it's just barely on the screen. I like to, I like to match my audio up there. So now this Nick Clason (24:26): Is later Nick Clason (24:28): Also, I'm gonna right click on this audio or control click or whatever. Two, two fingers click maybe. Um, and I'm gonna adjust the audio gain by 10. So it's a little louder. So let's see how it sounds. It says Nick Clason (24:43): Later, Nick Clason (24:44): Yeah, I'm also gonna drag this cuz it looks like it still needs a little more space to breathe later. Yeah. Okay, so that's Nick Clason (24:54): What it says. It says later, Matthew invited Jesus and his disciples to his home. Nick Clason (25:02): So this one right here, I'm clicking on this back over here into effects controls. That's at 1 28. So when this comes out, I'm gonna, when I'm done with the verse, I'm gonna cut it and I'm gonna cut it down to one 10. Remember I was talking back and forth between 1 28 and one 10. So Nick Clason (25:16): This reputable sinners that comes outta Matthew chapter nine verse 10. Nick Clason (25:22): So as I say that, I'm gonna cut right here. And then if I hit C for cut and if you hold down shift, it will cut everything in that uh, up above and and down below. So I'm gonna hit shift it, cut all my layers and I'm gonna go back to v the selection tool. I'm just gonna select them all. So now they're all gone. I clicked back on the actual video, I need to make that one 10. That was my transition. So 10 Nick Clason (25:54): Your tax collector Nick Clason (25:55): Back in and now we're rolling with guests be Nick Clason (25:57): Some of the most corrupt and frustrating people in the world. These aren't the kinda of people that anyone thought Jesus would be like sitting down sharing meal with. So here's what I wanna know. Nick Clason (26:10): So I want to comment. Um, we're gonna be playing this in our live room and I'm also gonna post it on YouTube. So I'm gonna put this comment below thing, right where I call for it. Nick Clason (26:18): Comment below or Nick Clason (26:22): So that was one 10. I just noticed this is one 10. This video here needs to be 1 28. Nick Clason (26:29): One thought Jesus would be like sitting down, sharing a meal with. So here's what I wanna know. Nick Clason (26:36): So I'm gonna cut here cuz I have it, I had it cascading before, but I'm making some adjustments so I need to make sure that I don't get myself outta order. I'm just gonna have to like 1 28, 1 10 all the way through and change it. So if I switch back to, if I do a one 10, I switch back to 1 20, 28. Then down the road where I have a one 10, it's gonna stay in my order. Come Nick Clason (26:58): In below. Or if you're watching this live in the room, uh, at the table around you, I want to ask you this question. Does it surprise you to know that Jesus shared a meal with people that are considered out? Nick Clason (27:11): Um, so I'm gonna put this question on the screen. Um, I'm gonna look back. I saw that I had another question on the screen thing. So this is Darren. Let's see how I got that question in there. Nick Clason (27:23): Question is just about following a set of rules. Talking about it like a party is Nick Clason (27:27): Sometimes. All right, so that is, uh, I know that just again from memory, I know that's babe new. So what I'm gonna do is I'm just gonna do file new, um, pixels is 1920 by 10 80. Resolution is 72 create. All right, I'm gonna command minus out. I'm gonna put a text in there. And then the question is, does it surprise you to know that Jesus spent time with these types of, of people or something like that? Command A highlights it all. I'm gonna change it to babe. New, um, babe, new bold. Um, color's gonna be white. I'm gonna right click on layer one, which is the text layer. I haven't, I must not change my settings yet. So I'm gonna go down to drop shadow and I wanna make it a black drop shadow. Give it a little angle here. So like, I usually like to go to the left at an angle. It's just personal preference. You can do whatever you want. Changing my size. If you see on, on the YouTube screen, I'm changing my size down, I'm changing my spread down. I like it a little bit more. Um, yeah, I'm gonna put my distance more right behind it. Nick Clason (28:46): There we go. Um, again, I'm just kind of doing that by eye and feel. But the more like black it goes in the background that I think the better it looks when it comes in. I'm going to highlight it. I'm gonna make it center aligned. I'm gonna drag this up to right underneath it. And then that way as I pull it down, you'll see right there I got those lines that are giving me, it's telling me's right in the middle, um, left and right and up and down. Okay, I got those lines telling me that I'm gonna delete this background here and then I'm gonna click command option shift w um, or file. That's the shortcut for file export. Export as. So command shift w I'm gonna switch it from JPEG to png. PNG gives it the transparent background. I'm gonna hit export and then I'm gonna go save it in that same folder. So share drive FC students social media messages. 2023. Um, start the party number three, I'm gonna put it in this PSD folder, but I'm gonna make a p and g folder, um, to not get 'em confused, I'm gonna take label it oh oh one question. Boom, put it in there and then back over here and premiere. I'm gonna do Pete, go into it. Uh, nope, wrong one, three psd uh, P and G question. I'm gonna drop it into my thing. I'm gonna drag it over here. So here's the question. Nick Clason (30:12): Come in below or if you're watching this live in the room, uh, at the table around you, I want to ask you this question. Nick Clason (30:19): Here's a question. So it's gonna come in, I'm gonna do positioning left and I'm gonna go down here and get that same sound effect. So it's uh, oh two five sfx. If you lose it in your bin there, you got this little search thing. So I just know the name of it is sfx. I click on it. I already got these bars from my in my out. I go my audio here, I drag it here and I'm just gonna make sure that that's all loaded up. I want it. Oh, I want it there. I'm gonna right click that. I'm gonna make that 10 again. Audio gain 10. Another way to do that if I want just the exact same one is I can go back over here to this one and if I hit option while it's highlighted and drag it, it should just duplicate that for me. I don't need that though, so I'm gonna delete it all. So back to my question Nick Clason (31:12): Table around you. I want to ask you this question. Does it surprise you to know that Jesus shared a meal with people that are considered O Nick Clason (31:22): All right, so I'm gonna rephrase that question so it matches. So does it surprise you to know that Jesus, um, how did I say it? Jesus shared a meal with people who are considered out. I'm going to get rid of the rest of that. All right, so now I'm gonna save it again. Again, this is one of my favorite features. I'm just gonna save it as replace and it should just change it. Look, it just changed it on my screen there. So because I updated it there in Photoshop and changed the file name, advise you to know Nick Clason (32:03): That Jesus shared a meal with people that are considered out in their ancient society. Why or why not? Take a minute. Nick Clason (32:12): So now that I have this, I'm actually gonna put a little countdown timer on the screen. So, um, in one of my folders here, I have a countdown timer. It's right here. It's called five Minutes Full Flat one. I just know the name of it. It's got an alpha channel on it. So it's right there. I'm going to, um, I only need the end of it cuz I'm not gonna do a full five minutes, right? So I hit C cut the rest of that and I'm gonna drag that over here. Um, I'm gonna pull a drop shadow on it. So I'm just gonna search in the effects here for Drop shadow, give it some definition. Didn't do much. I'm gonna go over here to effects controls. I'm gonna find drop shadow. I'm gonna move the opacity of the drop shadow from 50 to a hundred. I'm gonna change the distance. There we go. Now it's got some, some like at 40 back to effect controls. I'm gonna make it smaller. So I'm gonna hover over this 100 here for scale and just take it left and go down. And then I'm gonna go up here to this position. I'm just gonna drag it down right there. So now as I cue up the question, I'm gonna first find the end. This is where I end it, right here at this cut. So I'm gonna hit see. Nick Clason (33:28): So at the time of Jesus, there's a, so now what I'm gonna do is I am going to, this is the end. Okay? So when I queue up the question, why or why not? Nick Clason (33:41): Take a minute, Nick Clason (33:43): Uh, sir, I'm gonna cut it. I wonder if that is like past the end of the video or something. Let me see. Or is that hidden? Like what's going on here? Why is it not shown? I wonder if it's not like fully rendered or something. Hold on, let me find it. All right, now that I delete it, let's see if I can find it again over here. It's right here. It just looks like it's like loading it in. So it looks like it's just gonna take a little, a little, a little minute, a little minute to think I throw, I'm gonna drop it back in. Drop shadow, took all that off. Bye. Messing with it. I'm gonna change the distance to 40. It might just all need to like think. So I'm gonna hit file save as s STP 32. I'm gonna override it. Save. And I am going to, um, take a little break. I'll be right back. All right, so that didn't do crap. So I'm gonna open that sucker back up. Let's see if I can get it all right. That did it. So I just saved it and then I closed it and I opened it back up. We're good to go. So that's the end of my clip right there. Actually, it's a little bit long. So I'm gonna get to the end of my clip right there. Nick Clason (37:13): I'm going to click on the timer. I'm gonna make it a little smaller. I'm gonna pull it down and then I'm probably gonna animate its entrance. So Nick Clason (37:23): Surprise you to know that Jesus shared a meal with people that are considered out in their ancient society. Why or why not? Take a minute. Nick Clason (37:34): So I'm gonna put it right here where it starts, but that's only 10 seconds. And so what I'm actually gonna do is I'm going to lengthen the time. So I'm gonna grab all these right here and I'm gonna move them. And I want to give it closer to like 30 seconds. This is just like as a youth pastor is what I want to do. So I'm gonna pull this all the way down. I'm gonna pull this all the way down and then back that puts me at like a minute. So I want it at like 30. So like around, yeah, like around there. So that's where I want it to. And so what I'm gonna do here is I'm gonna, I hit, uh, see for the razor tool, I'm going to right click on this and I'm going to change the speed. So I'm gonna go, I was right click. I'm gonna go to, oh, I'm gonna go to speed and duration right here. And I'm gonna make it just 0.1. So it's super duper slow. So that's the video behind me as this question is sitting on screen. So it doesn't matter honestly what's happening behind me. Nick Clason (38:56): And then when that gets down to zero there, that's the end of it. I'm gonna pull. So I'm gonna zoom out so I can see all this. I'm gonna pull all these back in. So it's right next to it. Boom. Actually it needs to go there. I can drag that one to close the gap. And then I just need to animate the entrance. So I'm just gonna do motion in positioning smooth bottom of my countdown timer. Now I'm coming back over here. So Nick Clason (39:50): At the time of Jesus, there's a group of religious leaders, they're called the Pharisees. And they had a real problem with this dinner that we seen Jesus at. So it says when the Pharisees sum, Nick Clason (40:01): All right, so I need the verse for what I'm about to say. This is my show notes so I don't forget what it is. This is my Nick Clason (40:13): All right, so Matthew nine 11. So it's in this same thing here. It's just literally one verse later. So we're gonna copy this. I don't want to get that little A right there from Bible gateway all. So I'm in this tab here in Photoshop. I'm gonna go back to this tab. Not that one, not that one. Where is it? There's my verse. All right, hit the text command A to highlight command, V to copy. And then if I hit highlight at all and hit command shift and then the like p the period sign or like the, it looks like a greater than symbol, I can increase the size, um, slowly. So I'm gonna do that. I am going to change that from uh, Matthew nine 10 to Matthew nine 11 command shift S for save. Uh, oh oh two verse right there. And I'm drag that whole file back in. So get back over to it. Drag it in Nick Clason (41:13): Individual layers. Boom. Now here's the good news, which is a super cool, fun hack. Um, oh, that needs to be all the way this, this. So I'm hitting shift to highlight all these, all of these bad boys. Um, I'm, I'm replicating, right? I'm using the exact same thing. So I don't have to import all those. I'm just gonna hit option and drag them over here. And now I have this identical thing. I don't have to redo that. So now, now all I need is to get Matthew nine 11 right there, the new verse. And then I just need to animate in the text. So back over here, Jesus, Nick Clason (41:51): There's a group of religious leaders, they're called the Pharisees. And they had a real problem with this dinner that we seen Jesus at. So it says when the fa Nick Clason (42:02): So we're gonna do it right there and then we're gonna bring in. But when, Nick Clason (42:06): So it says when the fair Nick Clason (42:08): Right there, I'm gonna drag that to the end position in left. And then I need that sfx sounder. Click on here. Get that, bring it here, zoom in. I'm just hitting arrow over. That's where I want my sound effect to start. Um, I need to make that up to 10. All right, here we go. Nick Clason (42:33): So it says, when the Pharisees saw this, the fact that Jesus was there with the, the sinners and the outcast. And so why does your teacher eat with such stomach? Ask Jesus' disciples this question. You see the fares, you Jesus' disciples this question. Nick Clason (42:50): I think that's where I'm gonna end it. So remember, uh, see shifty boom back to V I can erase all those. So this was at 1 28. It'll come back to here at one 10. Nick Clason (43:07): Good question. You see the Pharisees were purposefully keeping others on the outside. They were judging them and questioning Jesus and his friends for not keeping them on the outside. Nick Clason (43:20): That is too long of a gap. I don't like that. So I'm going to cut right here, drag this and then make this 1 28. So now one sec. Nick Clason (43:28): Check out what Jesus said in response to them. I love it. He says, Nick Clason (43:32): All right, so we're doing another verse. I'm gonna assume it's the next verse. Yeah, actually it's 12 and 13, so I'm gonna get both of those. Oh, 12 through 13, copy paste. No that not copy. I must not have hit copy command C paste command v, I'm gonna make it a little smaller. Remember, command shift less than sign. I want this little a bad boy out of there space there. I'm gonna make, give a little more space to breathe cuz it is small. However, lemme make sure I don't how I read it. Nick Clason (44:27): Healthy people. So let me ask you, go and learn the meaning of this scripture. I want you to show mercy, not offer sacrifices for I have come to call, not those who think they are righteous, but those who know they are. Nick Clason (44:47): All right? So yeah, I did do the whole verse. So um, command shift s we're going to make it oh three verse back over here in premiere. I'm gonna clear that search so that I can find it. Verse three, we're making it individual layers. Boom. All right, so I need all of these backgrounds again option. So I'm gonna go here where it starts. Nick Clason (45:19): Check up. Oh Jesus. Nick Clason (45:21): So we're gonna make it right there. When I say check out, I just need Matthew nine. Oh did I not change it? Nope, I didn't change it. So I need to make it 12 through 13, just a little smaller. I'm gonna write it over. So now that same layer in Adobe Premiere Pro will be updated with the new text. So it's all that check out Nick Clason (45:51): What Jesus said in response to them. I love it. He says, Nick Clason (45:57): All right, so I need this verse, I need to put it right here, position in left. And then I need that sfx. Actually I'm not gonna get it that way. I'm gonna go here, highlight it option, drag it over. I make sure that I, whenever I do that, I always make sure sometimes it doesn't work but some. So I wanna make sure I didn't just move it but I actually copied it. So I wanna make sure they're both still there. They are. I'm gonna zoom in. I'm gonna get, when this starts coming in right there, that was already pretty close, but just a little over. Nick Clason (46:34): Healthy people don't need a doctor, sick people. So let me add, go and learn the meaning of this scripture. I want you to show mercy Nick Clason (46:44): Not so it's not long enough. So I'm gonna highlight all these and I'm gonna drag it. I Nick Clason (46:48): Offer sacrifices for, I have come to call, not those who think they are righteous, but those who know they are S, Nick Clason (46:56): That's where I'm gonna end it. I'm gonna shift, remember C, to get the razor tool, shift V, delete 'em all. And that gives me this new cut on my video timeline as well. So if that was 1 28, this can be one 10 as a zoom back out. No Nick Clason (47:15): They are, that comes from 99, 12 and 13. Nick Clason (47:19): I don't need that. So I'm gonna v cut that. See then V. Nick Clason (47:24): See Jesus came to care for those who needed him and most he came to show grace and love and mercy to the sinners, the tax collectors and anyone else who has ever been cast out of a girl. So what Nick Clason (47:44): That was a big gap. Nick Clason (47:46): So what does it look like to show mercy in today's world? Well for starters it's letting people know that they belong. That they can have a seat at your table. Nick Clason (47:59): So I like that quote. So I am going to um, it's letting people know that they belong. That they have a seat at your table. Just to make sure I got that quote right. Let's hear it again. Nick Clason (48:18): Well for starters it's letting people know that they belong. That they can have a seat at your table. You know, when you think about your life, right? Like I want you, Nick Clason (48:31): So I'm gonna do command option shift. W because I'm exporting, I'm not saving, I'm gonna make it a p and g. I am not saving the source files of these. I probably should but I'm not cuz I could recreate them pretty fast. And so it's just saving me a step cuz I would save it as a psd, then I would save it as a p and g as well. And that's just two steps. I'm just trying to cut that down. So I'm gonna have that come in there and then I need to drag into this gap right here. I want it positioning in left. Nick Clason (49:01): You know, when you think about your love, right? Like I want Nick Clason (49:06): You actually it's over here. Nick Clason (49:09): Well for Nick Clason (49:14): I get smaller, I got a pretty big starters. It's love. Yeah, there it as well. So I'm gonna pull that sfx sounder option. Yep. Nick Clason (49:39): It's letting people know that they, they belong, that they can have a seat at your table. You know when you think, Nick Clason (49:53): You know, when you think about your life, right? Like I want you to be honest, you probably hang out with people that you're most comfortable with. Your table might look like a table full of athletes or your table might be a table full of kids in theaters or your table might be a table full. Just kids in your neighborhood that you hang out with. Here's my questions. Since your table is often very similar, what if rather than having everybody with the same label sitting at all of your seats of your table, what have you chose to mix it up a little bit? You have one with this label, one with that label one with this label one. What would that look like? Like think about it. What if you chose to invite people? Nick Clason (50:48): So I'm just gonna add this here cause I felt like it was going a while without anything on the screen. Um, and I like that question. So I'm gonna make that oh oh three question and let's see where I start talking about it. A table Nick Clason (51:04): Full of athletes or your table might be a table full of kids in theater or your table might be a table full of just kids in your neighborhood that you hang out with. Here's my question. Since your table is often very similar, Nick Clason (51:17): What right there, what? So I'm gonna do position in left. I'm gonna go get this sounder again. Bring it right here. See those little arrows that gives me the indication that's lined up with my text up there. So I'm gonna let it go soon back in. Very similar. Nick Clason (51:35): What if rather than having everybody with the same label sitting at all of your seats of your team, what if you chose to mix it up a little bit? We have one with it. Nick Clason (51:46): I might actually move it. So I'm gonna hit that and then shift so I can move both of them over. Nick Clason (51:53): What if you chose to mix it up a little bit? We have one with this label, one with that. Like what? Nick Clason (51:59): I'm going faster now. Hitting L Nick Clason (52:11): Entertainment, Nick Clason (52:13): Is that the same thing? Nick Clason (52:17): Invest in different kinds of shows or, or forms of, uh, entertainment. Nick Clason (52:23): Yeah, I said that wrong. Nick Clason (52:27): Economic factors, what would it look? Sitting at all of your seats of your table, what have you chose to mix it up a little bit. We have one with this label, one with that label one with this label one. What would that look like? Like think about it. What if you chose to invite people who come from significantly different socioeconomic factors? What would it look like if you chose to invite people who are into different shows or forms of entertainment? You know, like kids who are maybe into anime or, or the Bachelorette or the Kardashians. What if you ask someone who is a gamer because you typically despise gamers and, and you're an athlete. Or maybe what if you're a Christian and you tend to avoid people who believe differently than you? What if you invited someone with a different faith system? Remember this, A party starter knows that everyone is invited. So how do you get invited? Nick Clason (53:30): Just gotta alternate these for the zoom back and forth on my cuts. Nick Clason (53:35): Be like Jesus, be the person willing to invite somebody new. Nick Clason (53:42): No, I don't mind alternating these now because I only got few . I'm at the finish line. People Nick Clason (53:51): Ain't a person willing to invite somebody new. See, we want this church and cross students to get student ministry. We're at a safe place. You can show up and just as you are, find yourself surrounded by people who want to make sure and know that you are invited. So I want you to ask this question again and around a little bit. Your camera. One person that I want to make sure feels in we're invited to the party with me. Nick Clason (54:11): Okay? I'm gonna add that. Who is one person who you want who command option shift, w, p and G oh four. Question back over here. Go find it. Nick Clason (54:38): Who's one person? The Nick Clason (54:40): I I'm gonna put it right here. I'm gonna get the sounder, bring it over. Nick Clason (54:52): Who's one per Nick Clason (54:54): Animated position in left, Nick Clason (54:57): Who's Nick Clason (54:58): One person that I want to make sure feels in or invited to the party with me this week? Nick Clason (55:06): So I gotta extend that sound. Um, I also want it to uh, so it's called exponential fade. That's where it like fades out slowly. So I drag it there on the end. And then we also have a here in the messages admin folder, YouTube button. Um, I have a subscribe thing where I can uh, just highlight our YouTube channel and anyone who's watching to subscribe. So I'm gonna drop it in towards the end. I'm gonna make it a little smaller and put it in the center middle Nick Clason (55:46): Into the party with me this week. Nick Clason (55:54): And I'm gonna match up the ending audio to go with that. And then that very end, I just need it to, I don't mind if it just stays on there. And I'm gonna drag this here. Command shift SSTP 32, we're resaving it. And now if I go up to sequence and I hit Command M Nick Clason (56:15): Or I just make sure I have the sequence, the blue box around it, this tripped me up one time. So bad file Export media. We're gonna change the location, so we're gonna put it in this folder here. New folder. Zero zero. Final start the party. Week three, save. Export entire source. There we go.

Our guest this week is Austin Federa. Austin is head of strategy and communications at Solana Foundation, responsible for setting the direction of the Solana Foundation and working with projects and developers building in the Solana ecosystem. Austin discusses Solana's pragmatic engineering culture and the need for developers to focus on building things that are truly only possible on Solana. He also highlights the Foundation's role in supporting infrastructure-level initiatives and turning R&D into stable, standardized solutions. Finally, he stresses the importance for founders to focus on revenue and business models during the bear market and to build outside of the United States.

Full Transcript:Brian Friel (00:00):Hey everyone, and welcome to the Zeitgeist, the show. We highlight the founders, developers, and designers who are pushing the Web3 space forward. I'm Brian Friel, developer relations at Phantom, and I'm super excited to introduce our guest, Austin Federa, the head of strategy and communications at the Solana Foundation. Austin, welcome to the show. Austin Federa (00:25):Hey, thanks for having me. Brian Friel (00:26):I'm super excited to talk to you today. As I was saying just before recording, I think this is the first time I'm recording someone who's actually a podcast pro, so I have a lot to learn from you. Thank you for making time. Austin, before we get into everything about Solana today, I'd love to just learn a little bit about you, how you got started at Solana. And I remember when I first joined Solana, you were the head of communications, and I think at the time there wasn't a clear split between labs and foundation. Since then, a lot has changed and maybe you could go in a little bit of that of how your role has evolved as well. Austin Federa (00:56):Yeah, definitely. So I originally joined in January of '21 out of Bison Trails. So Bison Trails was getting acquired by Coinbase to become Coinbase Cloud. I'd worked there for a little over a year running a bunch of the product marketing there and those sorts of things. And just with the transition over to Coinbase, it was like, oh, you don't want to go work for Coinbase, do you? And I was like, no, probably not. And so it was one of those things where it was somewhere in between one of the people who didn't make the cut and one of the people who they were like, you're just not going to be successful here. And I was like, that's a fairly accurate read. I got tons of great friends who are still working at Coinbase, but for me it just wasn't really the right spot. So I was talking to a bunch of L1s and L2s about coming over. (01:41):And so, one of the big things we'd done at Bison Trails is we had built out almost all of the world's Eth2 staking infrastructure. And I mean almost all the world's Bison Trails infrastructure ran solidly over 50% of the Eth2 network when the Beacon Chain launched, and still at that point in January of '21. Now this didn't matter from a decentralization standpoint because the Beacon Chain wasn't actually a thing. It was just a place you could stake. There wasn't actually user transactions or anything of value on it besides some Eth. But I was pretty heavily in the EVM world at that point. And so I was going around and talking to a bunch of different protocols. I was talking to a bunch of L2s and scaling solutions and these sorts of things, and I was talking to Polkadot as well and some of those type of other L1s. (02:25):And a friend of mine who I worked with back at Republic years ago, Ben Sparango was like, "Hey, what are you up to?" And I was like, "Ah, I'm kind of between stuff right now. I'm interviewing a bunch of places. I don't really feel super passionate about it. I was like, maybe I should leave crypto. I kind of like this industry a lot, but I don't know. We'll see." And he is like, "You should talk to Raj and Toly." I was like, "Of Solana?" He goes, "Yeah, yeah, I joined Solana a few months ago. It's great. You should come talk to us." And I was like, "I don't know, man. I worked with 20 different protocols when I was at Bison Trails and none of them were Solana. Solana was the weird thing that was hard to run and no one understood how to build software for it, but we supported it at Bison Trails because there was people who were trying to run infrastructure for it. (03:04):And he is like, "No, just come and talk to them." And we just finished up this big project with Masari, which was the state of Eth2 was basically the report that we just helped them write and put out. And I had a lot of questions and I thought the questions were just things that I was getting wrong. I thought it was me who was not understanding the model under which Eth2 was going to work. This is back at the time when you're going to have Parallax, execution shards on the network and all this sorts of thing. And I was like, I don't understand how DeFi is going to work here. The minute you break what now we call the global state, but the minute you start moving data into segregated places, that means the data has to be moved before it can interact. (03:45):And if there's one thing we all know about computer science, it's that copying is expensive and takes a lot of time. And so I got on the call with Anatoly, and I was just talking about Eth2 stuff and asking him some questions about what he thought about this stuff. And he's like, "Oh yeah, there's no composability in charting." And I was like, "You're the first person who's told me this. Tell me more." 'Cause I've been talking to a bunch of people who were talking about like, oh, well, it's just harder and it's like... He runs me through the whole thing about like Solana's, a single global state machine, really fast blockchain, what all these advantages were here. And all this stuff, for me, I was like, oh, this makes perfect sense. All of the things that I have been thinking and feeling about the undefined world of what the new state... Now I would sort of call it the cosmofication of Ethereum, what that process was like. (04:32):I wasn't an idiot and I wasn't just not smart enough to understand what folks were talking about. Folks just were talking ahead of the problems they'd solved. And this is not to say that we're never going to have composability uncharted ecosystems, but it took video game designers almost a decade to figure out how to program for multi-core processors. And that took a long time to figure. Out for me, this sort of decision to come and join the Solana Labs at that point was really practical. It was like, I don't know if this weird wacky idea is going to work, but I know I'm going to learn a hell of a lot here from these folks who are doing something very different than the rest of the industry. And the very different than the rest of the industry is usually where the cool stuff's happening. Brian Friel (05:15):I think that is the most perfect intro for this because it hits on so many themes. I want to dive in with you. Austin Federa (05:21):Great. Brian Friel (05:21):One theme that you kind of hit on right there, and this is before we even get into what you currently do as your role and everything, which we should definitely hit on, but I think that resonates pretty well with what Phantom saw originally. Because Phantom also coming from EVM background and the founders were all Zero X folks, seeing that, hey, there is this thing, it's maybe the redheaded stepchild of crypto right now, but these people who are marching into their own beat. This is like 2021, very early 2020 at this point. But basically what I would say it was a very non-consensus bet to do things differently and built out its own genuine kernel of developer ecosystem, which has just evolved into all this craziness today we can talk about. (06:00):But I think one of the key principles of that that I've noticed in my time in Solana is just the level of pragmatism and the reality of, Hey, these are problems today. We have users today, and how do we ship and iterate on these things and not talk about a problem that might be 10 years from now, which may or may not be solved, but actually addresses the problem today. And I think there's a lot that is going on in Solana about this across just all sorts of stuff. We should dive into all of that. Austin Federa (06:27):Oh yeah. Brian Friel (06:28):But I love that framing, and I'm curious, is that level of pragmatism... Who do you think that's set by? I feel like that's almost something an Anatoly thing, but is that an explicit choice that Solana Foundation or Solana Labs is choosing to bring into the ecosystem? Austin Federa (06:42):So one of the things I think is really important when you're looking at any software system is to look at philosophies that the people building it have. And a lot of the places you see that philosophy is in their background. And so if you look at Anatoly and Stephen Akridge and a bunch of the other early founders of the Solana project, their expertise was all in embedded systems. A bunch of these folks came from Qualcomm or very similar companies to Qualcomm, and they were trying to figure out how you could cram the best user experience possible on a flip phone or a proto smartphone onto a chip. And they had to do all these crazy low level optimizations to get this stuff to work. And Solana's not super, super low level, but one of the major things there was saying, we're going to combine the consensus layer with the virtual machine. (07:38):And that's not for some elegant principle of software architecture. That's because it's faster and yes, it's harder. And yes, there's a lot of other problems that come with that, but at the end of the day, the pragmatism comes from the background of folks who actually had to ship chips that companies were going to build software on that would interact in the real world and be the basis of all of this mobile revolution. And so there's other approaches that are very sort of come from the academic computing world where it's as long as we can define the perfect software system, in theory, the problem is just finding the execution place to do it on. And there are some chains that have been more successful than others with that. But I think at the end of the day, the thing Solana has going for it is this sort of ruthless pragmatism. It's a desire to build software in a way that doesn't let perfect [inaudible 00:08:33] of the good, but also keeps its values front and center. (08:36):And one of those major values is if you know you have to do the hard thing, do the hard thing first. And that is the thing I will routinely tell people internally is the only way you eat an elephant is one bite at a time. And that is kind of the way we go through all of this stuff. It's so easy to talk yourself into waterfall releases. It's so easy to talk yourself into, well, when this thing comes out, then this and this and this, and this can all come out and then we'll have this end state of this. And it's like you're making assumptions about what the blockchain industry's going to look like 18 months from now. I don't think any human is ever successfully predicted what the blockchain industry would look like six months from now, let alone three times that. So there's all this stuff about not working with entrenched assumptions, picking software architecture systems that feel like they're persistent. I would say that the software philosophy that Solana core engineering builds on is closer to brand philosophy than it is like technical philosophy. It's very interesting. Brian Friel (09:36):Yeah, I couldn't agree more. I mean, being [inaudible 00:09:39], I think we have a front seat to that too, as the ecosystem changes as the leadership basically, like you said, just takes the hard challenge first and says, this is something that we have to face. Let's tackle it now. Here's an open proposal, here's how we can do it. I'm looking back at what Solana was even just a year ago, one of the dev advocates on our team on it put out this tweet that said, "Things we didn't have a year ago on Solana Wallet's standard." Austin Federa (10:02):Oh, I love it. Brian Friel (10:03):Which is like looking at the state of other blockchains trying to be an ejected wallet there, it's a mess. Solana takes that hand on, makes a chain agnostic wallet standard for that version transactions, which like high level, massively refactoring how transactions can be done such that you can just access way more accounts on Solana DeFi doing multi hops exchange. Jupiter, the perfect example of that. Priority fees on the network, I mean elegant state level hotspot fee markets that don't impact the rest. Anyone else on Solana. Programmable NFTs, state compression, quick, stake weighted QoS. (10:37):I mean, not to mention Saga, new token programs. There's just so much going on right now. From where you sit, and maybe this can get into a little bit of the labs versus foundation discussion that we want to get into too, is how do all these ideas come to life mean? Some of these are community driven, like Metaplex having their own programmable NFTs. But a lot of these also are Solana engineers who are just on the front lines with their own proposals. Jordan Sexton has an idea he's doing it. How much of that is top down driven? How much of that is bottom up? And how much of this is a labs versus foundation? How do you see all this kind of how it plays out? Austin Federa (11:16):So before we even get to that, one of, I think the most interesting examples of pragmatism is how little work wallets have to do on Solana. This is super different. On Ethereum, the wallet has to build the transaction, that is a part of the thing. And on Solana, the DAPs have to build the transactions. Because the DAPs know more about what they're building than the wallet does. So why would the wallet build a transaction? The wallet's role is to verify that the transaction is what the DAP says it is, right? But it's those little tiny things where it's like how do we make it easier for people to build something like Phantom in six months as opposed to nine months? (11:55):And that's kind of one component that falls into that. But you were saying these sort of ideas about where do these things come from. A lot of it comes from best practices in other ecosystems about things people are talking about. I think one of the things that Ethereum is far ahead of Solana on is formal verification. And formal verification is not something that we came up with or claimed to have come up with. (12:20):It's like, oh, this is a really strong thing in another ecosystem that we should take and bring into this. Proof of history is just time division multiple access. It's TDMA, it's literally what 2G cell phone technology run on. But you've applied that to a blockchain with a leader schedule now and suddenly you have an incredibly fast blockchain. I think one of the best things to think about is Solana is full of out-of-the-box solutions to very conventional problems. And those out-of-the-box solutions will often come from engineers who are working on this stuff. They'll often come from engineers who are not working on this stuff. The number of suggestions that have come from someone's like, oh, I'm trying to build this thing, and someone like over lunch or over a Zoom on something else is like, what if you just do it this way instead? And they're like, okay. (13:08):And then they go down that... It's sort of this idea that there's not an intellectual purity test. You don't have to subscribe to a philosophy of how something should be built in order to have an idea here. P NFTs came entirely from community demand for them. That was a direct response to sort of a problem. The wallet standard is again, it's like it's really annoying that developers have to integrate calls for every wallet into their DAP. Wouldn't it be so much easier if there could just be one thing they could call and all the wallets in your Chrome Exchange could be like, hello, here I am. And that was an incredible easy turnkey thing that didn't require creating a whole separate product, a whole separate company to just connect wallets or adapt wallets if we should say it that way. And that's where these kind of things come from. (13:58):Now sometimes this leads to suboptimal user experiences too. I would say that we have three excellent explorers on Solana for what you want to do with that explorer. And you don't go to Solscan for the same things you go to Solana FM for and you don't go to the explorer.solana.com for the same things you go to those other ones for. And so there is sometimes this sort of fracturing that occurs because everyone has great ideas and they feel very comfortable building them before we've had a committee meeting or faculty meeting or something to decide what the right path forward is. As much as possible, the goal is to move fast and see what's adopted and the stuff that's adopted then gets tons of resources thrown behind it from the community. Brian Friel (14:48):Yeah, I do think that's incredibly refreshing though for crypto. I mean, especially an industry that's still... I think as a whole macro level iterating a lot. The meta is constantly changing. Some pattern that I've noticed is with P NFTs is a lot of times Solana will hit a new meta or figure out a new problem well before other ecosystems because of this rapid iteration and experimentation. And it's almost like, hey, Solana's figured it out. Let's take the learnings from there and tell everyone else and get up to speed on that. Austin Federa (15:16):Oh yeah. And tell everyone else we thought of it ourselves. That's also the other thing. And we see this all the time, not in a way that people are like, but all of the tricks that Monad is doing to try and speed up EVM, they're all the things that Solana did. Except they're trying to do it with an underlying architecture that it's a lot harder on because transactions on Solana have to specify their accounts, their instructions, their memory, their compute, before they get accepted and executed. So the work of transaction simulation on Solana is a lot more about just reading what the data says and being like, yes, these things say what they actually say they say, and then you can simulate balance changes and all that sort of stuff. But that is a very different problem than trying to stochastically model what an EVM transaction is going to do. (16:05):And if you're trying to do out of order processing of EVM transactions, I'm not going to say it can't work because a lot of people thought Token Ring was the only protocol that could possibly make the internet work. And the idea of just throwing packets randomly at a router and being good luck, well, that sounded insane, and that is exactly how the internet works. You just randomly throw packets at routers and most of them get there somehow. It's pretty astonishing. Like packet collision's super rare nowadays, even though everyone's just screaming at the top of their lungs constantly for bandwidth, and that's wild. (16:37):So who knows if the stuff will actually work on that side. But the cool thing I think that's going on in Solana is this lack of ideological purity around how something has to be done, and it's more of a purity around what the outcome has to be. There's so many analogies here, but the United States, we talk about equality of opportunity all the time, and that is actually a much harder thing to do than equality of outcome. And so I think with Solana, it's like if you focus on the outcome that you want and not the process by which you get there, you will find a better way to get there. Brian Friel (17:12):I love that. So from where you sit on the foundation side now head of strategy at Foundation, you mentioned that there's all these engineers, some at Solana, some not at Solana, who basically have these problems. They come up with pragmatic solutions. What's the role of the Solana Foundation on all of this? And is there any big bets in particular that you're excited about or you guys are making for this year on Solana? Austin Federa (17:36):Yeah, So the Foundation is a Swiss nonprofit foundation that exists to further the adoption and advancement of the Solana blockchain. And so this is the entity that gives grants. This is the entity that if you've ever sort of interacted with a granting apparatus, breakpoint, hacker houses, developer boot camps, those are all run out of the Solana Foundation. That's its role for being in the world. And so the initiatives that we are working on are really infrastructure level. They always have been, and I think they will continue to be throughout this year. So a great example of this are fee markets, like you mentioned, right? Local fee markets. That was technically shipped in September, but I would argue it practically wasn't shipped until December. And that was because there wasn't a method at that point for an RPC, for a wallet, a DAP, anything to hit up an RPC and say, how much do you think I should prioritize a fee if I really want to make sure this transaction gets through? (18:34):And without the ability to guesstimate, you don't have anything, right? That is not a functional, usable, shipped thing without developers actually being able to implement it. And that's kind of the difference I would describe between the work that gets done through let's just say Solana Labs and core engineering there and the work the Foundation's supporting. A lot of the work that core engineering does and a bunch of, obviously not all, there's core engineers all over the place, but a number of the core engineers are on Solana Labs' payroll. And those individuals, they're focused on the core engineering, right? (19:09):They're like, we shipped fee markets. We're good. At the Foundation, we're like, wait a minute, wait a minute. There's so much work to actually be done to turn this into a standard that every DAP and wallet can use without spending days writing custom code. And so I would say that's kind of the place that the Foundation comes in is it's not directing what work gets done, but it's sort of the process of taking stuff that feels like it's either R&D or it's super hot production engineering. And turning it into something that's more stable, that's more standardized, that's more universally understood, and doing that in a way that there's feedback collected from many people in the ecosystem, in addition to the whole granting apparatus. Brian Friel (19:47):So the developer relations team sits at the foundation level no longer at the labs level? Austin Federa (19:52):Yes, very much. You were saying earlier like, oh, these things maybe weren't as separate before they actually were just as separate. They were just very few people worked for Foundation. So because most of the work at that point was just sort of kick out as much as you can get out the door. There were folks at Foundation giving grants and stuff like that, but a lot of that sort of work that we do today, it wasn't necessary to do it yet because the thing didn't exist yet, at that stage. When I joined, there were 36 programs on the network that had daily transactions through them. Brian Friel (20:25):Wow. Austin Federa (20:26):Absolutely nothing. And now we're over like 1200 easily. And I just think that's such an interesting change to see over such a quick period of time. Brian Friel (20:35):Oh, for sure. It stood out to me too, that... I think I mentioned the earlier conversation too. It's like this kernel of genuine developer interest that basically no other blockchain ecosystem I think has outside of Ethereum where it's people who are very much specialized, Solana centric as Chase loves to say too in Glass, but really just thinking about what's only possible in Solana? How can I iterate on this and expand on this? That's super invigorating to be a part of, and that's my favorite part of the ecosystem, essentially. Yeah, Austin Federa (21:04):We love it. Brian Friel (21:05):On that note, there is this meme now, is recording this in April 2023 of only possible on Solana and these things that everything we talked about, this pragmatic engineering culture of basically what's the outcome, what's the end user experience that we really want, and finding ways to ship that. There's a lot going on right now. I mean, I think Saga is an awesome example of this. It's like, how could we take a phone that just is the most kick ass crypto experience you could possibly have on mobile, but there's all sorts of stuff. There's compressed NFTs and state compression, what that means, DPIN is this new thing. There's all existing, DeFi, just normal FTs payments infrastructure. What are you personally most excited about and are any key themes in the year ahead that you think people should look into now that really highlights the strengths of Solana? Austin Federa (21:52):So the decentralized physical infrastructure layer is a really interesting story for me personally. And I think there's so much that goes on with that that goes into that, whatever kind of language you want to use to describe that. I am just super excited about what that looks like. And for me personally, the stuff I'm most excited about on Solana is you really don't have a choice to build it anywhere else that you need a fast composable ecosystem that has the capacity to go up to tens of thousands of transactions per second for a base fee of $.000025 and that's rare. You really can't find that in a lot of other places or a lot of other applications. And so for me, that's like some of the coolest stuff on Solana. Now, in terms of what's coming this year, I think we're going to see Fire Dancer rolling out on testnet probably in Q4. (22:40):That's going to be really interesting to see how that performs when it's intermingled with the other clients on the network. So that's going to be very interesting. There's a ton of work being done to make custom contracts easier to deploy on Solana. This is a project called Interfaces. This is out of necessity. The Token 22, which is code name, it definitely won't be called that once it's released. Token 22 is this new token program coming to the network. And it brings all sorts of things like interest baresing tokens. You can charge fees to use contracts directly in the contract. (23:11):There's a lot of really interesting stuff that comes to it, but it adds a second token program to the network. And that second token program means you need to suddenly have a way that a wallet can instantly say, Hey, which program should I look at for this arbitrary piece of data on chain? And because of that, it means if you've built support for two, you can build support for 20,000. So there's little pieces like that that are coming, but I really think this is going to be another infrastructure year, but instead of it being base level infrastructure, it's going to be something closer to developer tooling. I'm not sure I would call Interface is developer tooling, but it's definitely usability tooling. That means it's easier to develop novel things for the Solana ecosystem. Brian Friel (23:55):Yeah, I see that as well. The conversation shift towards interfaces is really exciting too, because Solana's account model and program model has some implicit instruction in that where, okay, this is the canonical token program. Austin Federa (24:08):It's perfect. What are you talking about? Brian Friel (24:09):Yeah, it's perfect. What are you talking about? And I think that just leans even more into those pragmatic values kind of shipping. And that's like, Hey, if we do have these interfaces where all of a sudden any wallet can take any of these token programs, any NFT exchange you can list on, you can list your NFTs through them. Opening up that design space, a deeper infrastructure level, I think would be really exciting. Austin Federa (24:31):Yeah. This will support everything from if you are a... No offense, but if you're a super corporate NFT project and you want to make sure that you have certain protections or certain things or whatever, you might want to deploy your own version of an NFT contract. And right now it's really hard to do that. It's not hard to deploy the contract, it's hard to get the ecosystem on board with the contract you've deployed. Brian Friel (24:55):You have to knock on every door to get a custom integration. Austin Federa (24:59):And we're seeing this with compression, right? Compression is awesome. It's been picked up by a ton of wallets. There's not an NFT marketplace that supports it yet. Brian Friel (25:08):Not yet, but I have heard soon. So maybe, and by the time that this podcast is released. Austin Federa (25:13):Who's adding it? Brian Friel (25:14):I have heard Tensor. Austin Federa (25:15):Interesting. Brian Friel (25:16):As an alpha drop. Austin Federa (25:17):They've been making moves. Brian Friel (25:18):They're making moves, but I would not be surprised if Magic Eden and others would be following suit at some point. But if we can open up an interface, some sort of interface standard where we can get buy-in, do the hard work up front to get all these different companies to buy into some sort of interface together, it's going to unlock a lot of really cool potential on Solana. Austin Federa (25:38):Absolutely. Brian Friel (25:39):One other thing I want to ask too is, you mentioned a few things kind of implicitly there. One of my questions was going to be like there's all these exciting things happening where we should we be investing now to unlock all this. But I guess there's also... I've noticed on Solana, and particularly Solana Twitter, there's this part of what this pragmatic culture has attracted is a culture of doers and people who show up and they want to contribute and they want to lend their time. And a lot of developers who maybe not even be working in the Solana ecosystem who are just excited and passionate about it. If you could speak to those people, where do you think they should be focusing their time and energy? What is Solana most in need from external contributors at this time? Austin Federa (26:19):It's a really good question. I mean, the problem there is I don't think the advice that I would give external contributors is good advice for their project at this point. It's great advice for Solana. The advice for Solana, I'd say is keep building strong open source tooling and foundations so we can make it easier for new developers to get involved. Anything you build that fits into the Lego thesis super strong, please keep doing it. What I would actually give as advice for founders in this space right now is that we're probably in a bear for at least another 12 months, and it's going to be a climb out of this thing. And you should be spending time thinking about revenue. You should be spending time thinking about business models. Not a lot, not enough to go raise a massive series beyond, but enough that you're extending your runway by a few months that if you have to raise a bridge round, you can show, hey, actually we do have revenue. (27:23):Here's our revenue numbers. Give us a little bit of money. Because I think this is a really hard time in the capital markets. It's really easy to be like the bear is a great time for building. That's true. The bear is a great time for building. It's a terrible time for payroll though. And that's kind of something they just remember as you kind of go through the process. Now, what does Solana need? I mean, I'm going to tell you my vision of how Solana could not win. And the way Solana doesn't win is if these incremental small scaling solutions for EVM, that 400 transactions per second, you can do an EVM right now if you really try. Maybe we just don't come up with transaction heavy use cases that anyone truly wants for a while. And that's a situation where all this horsepower that's been brought to bear on something like Solana isn't actually needed for what things people want to build on blockchains. (28:20):Now, I don't think that's true, but that's the thing to think about. What Solana needs is for people to embrace only possible on Solana and to build more things that are truly only possible to be built on Solana. Because as much as I love NFT projects, very few of them are only possible on Solana. This is the great thing about XNFTs. Those are truly only possible in Solana right now. But let's see teams going out there and saying, okay, a 10,000 drop is cool. What if we do a million, 10 million, a hundred million? Yeah, they're going to be cheaper. Yeah, the dynamics are going to change. Something's going to change, right? But this is the thing that I think is so interesting about this space is everyone has internalized this financialization, Bitcoinification view of all crypto. Like, Bitcoin's value is scarcity, period, end of day. (29:20):That's great. Props to Bitcoin, nothing since Bitcoin is Bitcoin. Like Magic The Gathering is not worth less money every time they print a new trading card pack. The Pokemon company is not worth less money every time they sell a new Pikachu plush. There are models here that people just seem emotionally afraid to try. I think Clano is getting pretty close to this and they're doing some very cool stuff with how they're doing some collection expanding. On the NFT side though, I think people need to get away from the idea that their value proposition is scarcity and figure out ways to do like LVMH and Louis Vuitton have done where they have something that is still high end, that is still hard to get but is not fixed cap. And sort of see where that maybe heads from there. On the DeFi side, start building outside of the United States, translate your projects, websites into Vietnamese and Turkish. (30:18):Don't think your growth is going to come from the United States in the next year or two because the regulations here are really uncertain right now. And it's a bit of a tricky time for folks to be in the United States. But I went to Turkey and I went to Vietnam, and folks are using crypto, and they're using crypto because in Turkey it's significantly more stable than their actual native currency. And that's a crazy thing to be thinking about, but that's true. So let's embrace that. Let's actually think of this stuff and make sure that the work that's being done truly actually supports this kind of stuff. And I think that's kind of one of the most important things to think about from the perspective of a founder at this point. Brian Friel (30:57):Yeah, I think there's been a key theme here throughout this whole conversation of basically going back to first principles and thinking, what's the outcomes that we want? Originally, I think Solana's tagline, even blockchain at Nasdaq speed, we were promised flying cars. We got Twitter, we got the greatest JPEG trading engine in the world on Solana, but how can we continue to iterate on this and what are things we can only do on Solana? All those examples you brought up I think are awesome examples. I really appreciate that you guys are continuing to challenge the ecosystem and to push and to not be afraid to try new things, and that's where the unlocks happen. Austin Federa (31:30):Yeah, of course. I think that's incredibly important and powerful here. Brian Friel (31:34):Well, Austin, this has been an awesome conversation. Thank you so much. One closing question we ask all our guests. Keeping line with the last question of the things you're excited about is who is a builder that you admire in the Solana ecosystem? Austin Federa (31:48):I mean, there's so many, it's hard to pick one. There's the easy answers of Armani and those folks and Mango Max. And I think the truth is that the folks who are doing some of the most interesting work are the ones who are bug fixing, who are going in and saying, ah, I ran into this problem with this tool set that I've seen someone else build. Let me go spend a little time trying to fix this thing up. And I don't have anyone particular to name in that, but it's very easy to be like, holy shit, Armani and X NFTs. Wow. And it's like, that is incredibly important. You know what else is really important? The dude that went in and made RPCs 20% more efficient for certain types of calls. And I think those are equally important things, and I wish we did a little bit more celebrating of the maintenance work in addition to all of our celebrating of the true innovations only possible on Solana. Brian Friel (32:40):Mert is going to love that, that you said their call that out, so. Austin Federa (32:44):There we go. Brian Friel (32:44):Maybe we can put Mert, Triton, all those folks, everyone, all the infrastructure that does the unsexy blocking and tackling that maybe really is the true glass eating on Solana, all of those guys. Austin Federa (32:56):Totally. I mean, there's a bunch of devs that work in Mango that are actually part of core engineering now, and they just fix a bunch of stuff because they're just like, we were trying to build our next version of Mango and we kept running into these problems, so we just started fixing stuff. Brian Friel (33:10):No one knows it better than them. Yeah. Austin Federa (33:12):Exactly. So it's good. Brian Friel (33:13):That's amazing. Well, Austin, I'm really excited for the next year Solana, thank you so much for coming on the podcast. Austin Federa (33:20):Definitely. Thank you. This is fun.

Will gets Steven to read one of his fave mangas, a story that revolves around the lives of several young adults all living in or around the city of Tokyo. Many different lifestyles are shown but most of the time the story focuses on the concept of being a hikikomori (a reclusive individual who withdraws from society) and chooses to surround themselves in the comfort of all that is anime and otaku. Most of the characters experience intense feelings of depression and loneliness. You better believe this one is for adults only. Skip synopsis @ 3:47 Email: WeAppreciateManga@Gmail.com 108: Welcome to the NHK vol. 1 Chapters 1 to 5 Story by Tatsuhiko Takimoto Art by Kenji Oiwa Tatsuhiro Sato is a 22-year-old university drop out and hikikomori who believes in conspiracy theories and has been a social shut-in for 2 years. When a religious woman with a leaflet knocks on his door accompanied by a Mysterious young girl called Misaki Nakahara. Sato eventually goes for a job interview where he bumps into Misaki again and eventually Misaki choses Sato to help her with a personal social project for the purpose to stop him from being a hikikomori social shut in, she does this by having regular meetings and counselling sessions with Sato. Sato's neighbour is annoyingly playing anime music, Sato has enough and breaks into his neighbour's apartment to berate him only to find out to his surprise his neighbour is an old college acquaintance Kaoru Yamazaki who is now an otaku. During a project meeting and counselling session Sato lies to Misaki that he is a game programmer, to keep up with the lie he seeks the help of Kaoru and so they decide to make an erotic “Ero” dating simulator style videogame as Kaoru mentors him in the ways of otaku degeneracy. During his game research Sato goes shopping and an old high school friend named Hitomi Kashiwa spots him, they briefly have a conversation about drugs, social anxiety and being Hikikomori. Hitomi wishes to Sato again as she says farewell to him for now. Kaoru gives Sato some illegal and dangerous research to the point Kaoru becomes addicted to porn and is digressing into a pervert by taking pictures of cute school girls. Misaki comes out of nowhere and this snaps Sato out of it. Sato then gets a phone call from his mom, he lies to her about his job and a girlfriend, thus Sato seeks the help of Misaki and they decide to play the role of a couple, this gives them a chance to get to know each other. References: · Hikikomori Is the Japanese word for post-graduates who become socially reclusive shut-ins, like NEET (not employed, in education or training) or Hermits, the widespread growth of such people has become a worldwide phenomenon but has been for the most part well documented in Japan. It is possibly a response, albeit one in the form of a silent protest, to the stress and pressures of youth entering a society that lacks employment security or is extremely competitive when it comes to the workplace. · Moe and Lolita culture Has a large presence throughout ‘Welcome to the NHK'. Although the etymology behind the word “moe” is a slang word from the 90's that defines the aesthetic of a lot of Heisei era anime, to the point that it is often referred to by non-Japanese as “anime style” The idea behind it is to make characters as adorable and cute as aesthetically possible, so to appeal to emotions of love, care and sometimes to illicit a sort of parasocial relationship or paraphillia. This often results in characters or people looking younger than their supposed age and all anime itself to be mistaken for being aimed at and consumed by children. Basically a moe character is a young woman, “adorably cute, just a bit sexually appealing, and self-conscious but not yet cynical”. With maid-cafés being a prime example and manifestation of this. A genre of (or extension of this aesthetic) is the controversial Lolicon which depicts budding romances between children, even being sexual in nature. The consumption of such media being psychologically harmful is debatable and certainly illegal in parts of the world. · Gravure Models (Idols) Not to be confused with the word “Rotogravure”, these are swimsuit and underwear models, basically magazine glamour idols, softcore pornography. Regardless of what Will says, Gravure idols are not in any form sexualized children, although the sentiment around idolising schoolgirls and pornographic content about schoolgirls is a great concern within Japan, which leads us to… Laws regarding Age of Consent Within Japan is no longer granted to people aged 13, as of the upload date for this podcast it has instead risen to 16 and up, similar to Britain and South Korea. As has the statute of limitations reporting such crimes, which has also been raised by 5 more years, we will not discuss when this law passed or what is considered “Romeo and Juliet laws” which is laws wherever consent between 2 children and their parent's permission results in a different sentence, simply because we are not experts on this topic. Ultimately, we at ‘We Appreciate Manga' think that this is a good thing. We do not judge people by their culture but we do celebrate Japan's progressive stance towards bettering their own justice system. · 30GB of imagery Consisting of compressed JPEG files is between the worth of 15258 and 5755 images (removing the last digit of both figures calculates for raw uncompressed files) according to Western Digital. This does not sound like a lot in terms of data but for the standards of the time this amount of images would have taken over 50% of an average Drive, with the most expensive USB Drives only going as high as 16GB. · Lexotan Is one of many brand names for Bromazepam.

Zhanna: Hi Michael, I'm doing amazing. How are you? Michael: I'm doing pretty good. Thanks for asking. If you don't mind me asking right now, where are you located? Zhanna: Uh, I'm in northern California on the peninsula. Uhhuh, and um, foster City. Michael: Okay, nice, nice. Awesome. So let's dive into it. Tell us a little bit about your past, your present. How'd you get to where you are? . Zhanna: Sure. It's, uh, it's a long, it's a long story . Mm-hmm. , but I try to make it short. So I am I'm a board certified orthodontist, but I'm also a dental coach. That is my main focus on my passion, is my coaching practice where I help busy doctors create a thriving work and life balance so they can succeed, uh, without burning out and the way I got there.So I'm a doctor and a coach. I am actually something that's called a foreign trained dentist. So I was born and raised, not in the United States. I was born and raised in the Ukraine. Uh, a country that sadly many people know more about now with what's going on there. and, uh, so I grew up there.my father is a dentist, so I come from a family of doctors. and when I was about 15, you know, I decided to go to dental school. back home, it was actually in, in Moscow, in the Ukraine, but I've always had. Two passions. I've always wanted to study abroad. I don't even know why , we didn't even have internet back then in the nineties, but I've always wanted to study abroad and I always had passion for, behavioral psychology, motivation.What makes people successful? Midway through dental school in Russia, I decide to move to Europe. So I turned 18 and on my own I moved to Prague, Czech Republic. That's where I finished my dental school. Five years in in Charles University in Prague. moved back to Russia opened a general dentistry practice with my father, who still practices there.Worked there for about a year and decided that I wanted to move to the United States. So 13 years ago I moved to the us learned the language went back to dental school. Your listeners who are foreign trained dentists would understand this track. If you are trained in another country, uh, other than the US as a dentist, when you move here, you have to get recertified, meaning you have to go back to dental school for a shorter number of years.It was two years for me. I went to University of Pacific here in California in San Francisco. And after that I decided to specialize in Orthodon. So I went to the residency on the East coast in Philadelphia, temple, and became an orthodontist. And after that I decided, nah, it's too cold. Moving back, , moved across the country again and have been practicing in Northern California since, since I graduated.Okay, nice. That's a little bit how I became a dentist or orthodontist. And like I uh, mentioned to you, my passion has always been. , what makes successful people? Successful. I've always been, listening to tapes when I was like, since I was in my teens and early twenties, you know, classics, Dale Carnegie, Napoleon Hill, Martha Beck and Tawny Robbins, you know, mm-hmm.people like that. I've always had it in my, in my ears, that helped me reach to where I am in my career. and when I was practicing as an orthodontist in California, I was in a very busy practice. where I saw close to 100 patients a day. And as you can imagine, it's, you know, you have to manage your mind really well to be successful and still have that work-life balance.Mm-hmm. . And that's where I stumble across life coaching. Like it's becoming more knowing now what coaching is, but still people are like, Hmm, my coach, what is it exactly? So I discovered life coaching. I hired my coach. She really helped me. have that entrepreneurial mindset rather than an employee mindset where I was able to take control over, just my life balance really.And then I decided to get certified. I spent a year becoming certified as a life coach through, it's called the Life Coach School. There's different type of schools, but that's where I got certified in 2018. And Fast forward opened my coaching practice mostly because people around me noticed that something has shifted in me.Mm-hmm. and my colleagues start reaching out, like, how are you so chill? You saw so many patients today. So I started coaching my friends who were also dentists. And then, when the pandemic hit, I just decided to go, full speed into coaching and started my business. It's called ZK Coaching. And uh, that's has become my main focus and my main. Michael: And you still have your ortho, like your practice, your Zhanna: orthodontic practice? Yes. I'm still a board certified orthodontist. Correct. But most of my focus right now is in my coaching practice. Michael: Gotcha. Okay. So if you don't mind me asking, how many times do you practice clinically in Zhanna: like a month?It varies. It really varies depending on the demand. So it's really different month to month. Michael: Gotcha. Okay. So let's rewind a little bit. Why did you decide to become an orthodontist? Go that. . Zhanna: Yeah. Such a good question. Why did I decide it? Because I had a teacher in dental school who believed in me, that I could Uhhuh,Let's fit it this way. Orthodontics seemed interesting, seemed different, you know, in general dentistry, uh, or in dental school, you're not exposed very much to orthodontics. As a general dentist, you do pretty much all of the procedures except orthodon. like root canals, surgical extractions, things that endodontics, root canal specialists focus on you doing dental school, some of it.So you get experience, extraction of wisdom teeth for example, or difficult extractions, so-called surgical extractions. You do the, in dental school, that's what oral surgeons do. You probably don't place implants, although it depends on the dental school. So you kind of get exposed to different pediatric dentists, right?Working with kids. You do that in dental school, so, You get exposed to all of the specialists except for orthodontics, you don't really move teeth. as a dental student. And I just remember peeking, in an orthodontic, residency, program at my school at U O P and thinking, wow, this is so cool.You know, there, it's just you can move teeth. Like what is happening right now from one side to another? That seemed like so futuristic. And I was like, I don't know, it's so competitive. Like, should I, should I not? And you know, one of my instructor, you know, basically was a life coach . Kind of type thing and said, yeah, you totally should, you know, like that little train I thought I could.So I did. Yeah. I just decided that would be very interesting. And I was always also drawn into aesthetic and like complicated cases. And I also thought as a woman who Had envisioned a path of having a family. You know, in the future I thought that my work, work-life balance would be better with orthodontics versus, for example, surgery.Although I'm sure there's oral surgeons who have work-life balance. But that's how I thought about it at that time. So that's why I decided to go the, the route of orthodontics. Okay, Michael: nice. So then fast forward a little. and you decided to hire a coach. I mean, you've always been interested in like motivation, what makes successful people successful, like you said.Yeah. But where was the moment where you were like, I need something. This can't continue to happen like this? What? What was that like? Zhanna: Yeah. Let me see when it was, I think it was 2017, I think I was at the gym. I almost remember that. And I was running on the treadmill as many, many successful people, you know, work out to, not just be in shape, but like be in mental shape, right?Mm-hmm. . And I just remember running on the treadmill and thinking, I am still thinking about my patients. Like I am still constantly reliving all these cases and like, Like, I just want a break. . Mm-hmm. , I don't have this break. Right. And, you know, I'm the kind of person who listens to podcasts when I work out, not so much music.I think I was looking for something like efficiency, productivity, you know, I was always interested in, how, how to be like, Top organizer. Mm-hmm. . Um, and the podcast came out, the Life Coach School Podcast. So I started listening to her and I was just blown away by the principals that she was talking about, that had to do with mind management around life, really everything. when I decided to hire her. And things that I had learned completely changed the way I looked at. Work and my goals and my personal life and, just where I was heading and how I was thinking about it, that really helped me be 100% present at work when I was at work and not take it home.So I think that was kind of like a pivotal moment for me where I honestly just ended up hiring a life coach and I didn't look for it. It wasn't like a thing, at least for me that I knew about. But it was truly a pivotal moment in my life and career, obviously. Mm-hmm. since I became a life coach, that changed everything for me.Yeah, Michael: cuz that's super common, Jon, where like you're. , at night, you're thinking about work in the morning, you're thinking about work on your vacation, you're thinking about work. You know, it's just like life of an entrepreneur. So yeah. How did that change, especially when you're looking at goals, because if you, you're taking a flight right, to your vacation and you're like, you're thinking about new goals, you're, you're creative and you're like, oh man, I'm excited about this.Is that a good thing or a bad? Zhanna: I think it depends how you look at it, right? So if you're looking at it in a way that's disempowering you, that's probably not a good thing because whenever you take action from a negative emotion, you're not going to create a favorable outcome. Most of the time you really don't.So the way it, the live designed it actually, which is great because in order for you to hit your goals, you have to like what you're doing.

Mm-hmm. , it really is, meaning any lofty goals requires a lot of action over a prolonged period of time.In order to do that, there's only two ways. One is through self-discipline, which we all know. One, it's hard. Second of all you, that's how you get burned out, right? You take a lot, a lot of action, and you're like forcing yourself. Verse is way number two. is when you enjoy the process, and then it's a pool, right?You're pulling yourself towards your goal. So you may be thinking about it when your plane is taking off, but you're thinking about it in an inspiring and empowered way, and that will propel you to take more productive, massive action and feel good. Michael: Gotcha. So can you gimme an example then, like on how we can utilize this?So, I mean obviously a lot of us are like, I wanna have goals to like, you know, reach a million by the end of the year on collections or whatever. Right. Is that something like you would say, yeah, you should add that in your life, like goals coaching or is it more like be content with 800,000 and you have the freedom and.you know what I mean? Kind of thing like Zhanna: that. Yeah, yeah. I see what you're saying. Mm-hmm. , um, the way I approach it, and that's definitely a topic that I coach McClue a lot on, so I always tell them, especially when it comes to the revenue goals, the money goals, there is math and then there's drama. Math is simple. Drama is what I help you with as a life coach. Mm-hmm. , for example.
