Welcome back to PART 2 of our SWV “It's About Time” journey. In this episode, Angie (@poetrysoul3) and Steffi (@inn_mho) break down the era! In our Era Breakdown episodes, we touch on so many topics like career context, controversies/scandals of the era, marketing, music videos, live performances, album stats, and the album & era's ultimate impact and legacy. For this episode, we discuss SWV's faulty contract and (yet again) how one particular member was more or less pushed as the lead of the group which caused major tension within SWV. We also talk about Michael Jackson's generosity, the confusing chaos of SWV's music videos, and two of our favorite live performances. And as per usual, we end the episode reflecting on the ultimate impact that the SWV's' “It's About Time” had in music and the girl group pantheon. Again, this is part 2 of the conversation! So make sure you listen to part 1 where we discussed the album track by track. We hope you enjoyed our SWV “It's About Time” journey! Album Info: It's About Time is the debut studio album by American female R&B trio SWV. It was released by RCA Records on October 27, 1992, in the United States. It earned 11 Billboard Music Award nominations and became the 16th best-selling album of 1993 in the United States, with 2,100,000 copies sold according to Nielsen SoundScan. It also earned SWV a nomination for Best New Artist at the 36th Grammy Awards. In 1996, It's About Time was certified 3× platinum, for shipping over 3,000,000 albums in the US alone. The album spawned five hit singles with "I'm So into You", "Downtown", "Weak", a remixed version of "Right Here/Human Nature" (the latter two reached number one on the R&B singles chart, with "Weak" being their biggest and only number-one pop hit), and "You're Always on My Mind" (shortened to "Always on My Mind" for single release). A remixed version of "Anything" appeared on the soundtrack of the film Above the Rim in 1994 and was released as the final single from It's About Time.*Email us for show notes: divadailiespod@gmail.com*Twitter & Instagram: @divadailiespod*YouTube: Diva Dailies PodcastSTEFFI'S SOCIAL MEDIA:*Twitter & Instagram: @inn_mho*YouTube: innmyhumbleopinionANGIE'S SOCIAL MEDIA:*Twitter: @poetrysoul3*YouTube: Sleepy Nerd ProductionsTIME STAMPS:- Housekeeping (01:00)- Listener Feedback: (02:45) Era Breakdown (07:06)- Pop Corn & Pop Stars (07:44)- Spill the Technicolor Tea (11:39)- But We Need the Audience to Buy the Album (32:01)- Video Killed the Radio Star (37:33)- The Mic Is On (47:03)- Show Me the Receipts (51:27)- Impact/ Closing Thoughts (54:47)- Preview Next Week's Episode (57:27)

Trail running can be intimidating to lots of people. What if you get lost, break your ankle, or see a snake? I'm not sure that you're safer running in the city with weirdos and speeding BMWs, but I think it's pretty normal to be intimidated by trail running if you've never done it before. Anne (Wheatly) George is on the Run to the Top today to help us out. Anne has challenged herself with some of the toughest trails in the country. She has run Rim to Rim to Rim of the Grand Canyon twice, including one trip all by herself. She's run the iconic Nepali coastline in Hawaii solo, trekked her way to Everest base camp and run/hiked her way up half dome in Yosemite twice to name a few of her adventures.  When she isn't adventuring, she enjoys ultra trail racing. Anne has completed the Tunnel Hill 100 miler in 16 hours with a second place finish. She also earned second at the Bear 100 and took First place overall at Badwater Cape Fear 50. In this episode we talk about: the misconceptions about trail running, how to stay safe and get better at it, and how to train and fuel your next adventure If you've ever wanted to try trail running or if you already love it and want to get inspired, this is the show for you.

From Russia to Sweden and the United States, there's a growing network of White nationalist groups that stretches around the world. The reporting team at Verified: The Next Threat investigates how these militant groups are helping each other create propaganda, recruit new members and share paramilitary skills. We start with a group called the Russian Imperial Movement, or RIM. Its members are taking up arms in Russia's war against Ukraine, which they say is a battle in a much larger “holy war” for White power. Newsy senior investigative reporter Mark Greenblatt interviews a leader of the group who says RIM's goal is to unite White nationalists around the world. The group even runs training camps where White supremacists from around the world can learn paramilitary tactics. Russia's White nationalists are making connections with extremists in the United States. Greenblatt talks with a neo-Nazi named Matt Heimbach, who was a major promoter of the deadly 2017 Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, Virginia. Soon after Charlottesville, Heimbach invited members of RIM to the U.S. and connected them to his network of American White power extremists. We end with a visit by Greenblatt to the State Department in Washington, where he interviews two top counterterrorism officials. They say they're aware of the growing international network of White supremacists, but explain that White power groups are now forming political parties, which makes it more difficult for the agency to use its most powerful counterterrorism tools.

Pete McBride is an award-winning photographer and filmmaker whose work is regularly featured by National Geographic, Smithsonian, The Nature Conservancy, and other renowned institutions. His most recent book is titled “Seeing Silence: The Beauty of the World's Most Quiet Places,” and it features photographs and stories from more than two decades of his adventures on all seven continents. “Seeing Silence” uses stunning imagery and engaging storytelling to highlight the importance of places free of man-made noise, it and educates the reader on how quickly silence is disappearing from the world. - For more than twenty years, Pete has been using his skills as a storyteller to inspire action on a wide variety of conservation issues. He has highlighted the multitude of threats facing the Grand Canyon in both his documentary "Into the Grand Canyon" and his book "Grand Canyon: Between River and Rim." He's also documented the West's ongoing water crisis by focusing on the myriad of challenges affecting the Colorado River basin–making the important but sometimes confusing topic of water in the West accessible to a broader audience. And now, with "Seeing Silence," he's turned his focus to noise pollution and natural sounds, and I personally learned a lot from the book and this conversation. - This is Pete's second appearance on the podcast, so if you'd like to learn more about his personal backstory and adventures in the Grand Canyon, you can find a link to that conversation in the episode notes. In this conversation, we go deep into Pete's new obsession with silence and natural sounds, and why noise pollution is such a critical conservation issue. We started out talking about Pete's expedition to South Georgia Island back in March of 2020 and how he had to make a hasty escape from the island when Covid descended on the world. We talk about his experience during Covid, and how the pandemic shifted his interests from the visual to the auditory. We discuss how artificial noise affects wildlife, why Pete feels a responsibility not to share specific wilderness locations on social media, how Pete's family keeps him grounded, the larger purpose that drives his professional work, his recent photography work in Lake Powell, and we also included some sounds that Pete recorded during his South Georgia Island expedition. - It was great to chat with Pete again, and I'd encourage you to check out "Seeing Silence"– it's an excellent book. And be sure the check out the episode notes for a complete list of all the topics we discussed and links to everything. Thanks to Pete for taking the time, and thanks to you for listening.

We open with this really angry coach, that always brilliant Robert Patrick, and again he's in on this and he he knows what a kind of film he's in. He screaming, scimming Blue Eyes. Yeah, absolutely, he doesn't look much older here and we're what six years on, seven years on from judge mcday? Yeah, absolutely screaming at his team and stand his quarterback and it's proper heart attack behavior, this, isn't it? Yeah, did you catch the song in the background? Oh God, no, I was. It was the next but I was blew me. Was Really, really annoyed it the next. The song was the kids aren't all right by the offspring from that American album which I've got CD somewhere behind. Meeting in the car tomorrow and I got CD player again. I'M gonna throw it in the car. It September one. It's high was eleventh in the US and the UK, Sixty nine in Australia, nice and forty three in Belgium's alter a pub, fifty wiland there. I don't know what then that is. It went gold in the UK, Platinum in Italy and the USAF. So we did alright. It's done, all right. They were they were big, weren't they? They were really big at that point. I went to see them, I want to say in two thousand, a couple of days after my birthday, so like the next year. Um, and there were great, fantastic and it's Colin Robinson. Fella. Um Again, listeners, if you want to see Colin Robinson walking all over the laptop, my notes, yeah, then you're gonna need to making techniques. Yeah, yeah, so they were. They were huge chill children at the time and a great zone. Yeah, there were a green deal of time. Yeah, yeah, arguably better anyway. So what's the what? What's the next song? That that got you going? As soon as I heard the REF coming in, I'm like what they're doing? I see right, yeah, we'll come to that. Yeah, we will come to that. Yeah, that fucked with me. You know what I'm talking about? Yeah, yeah, yeah, and he's approached by this unseen character. He's like, what do you want? And we fade out. That night there's a meeting of staff. There's no money for Ms Brummel. Miss Brummels just about million years old, the Blair which, no money for her computers, no money for Mr Take's trip to NYC. Now, Mr Take, the actor that played Mr Tate, we have seen in a number of things, but on this podcast he was the opposing COP chief two, Brian Cox's COP chief. Yeah, yeah, Johnny chimpo brilliant in this as well. And again. I know I mentioned every time the bad guy in masters of illusion. Oh God, yeah, yeah, yeah, I forgot about that. Actually, yeah, that's who's WHO's the WHO's the good guy? WHO's the good magician in that? Scott Bacula, is it? Is it a master of illusion? I'm making that. Yeah, as long as it's no masters universe. That's no, that's a very but the bad guy, that's skeletor it's friend. Yeah, anyway. Um, and they can't get this money. He wants stay to New York and Mrs Olsen wants to do a mute Zical, but there's no money, because I'm sure the football team will get get their kit. Yeah, and she's like they will get whatever town. You've seen what it's like on a Friday night here. Principal Drake, maybe new with by the way, you know who she is. Big Fan of cheers Lilith. Yeah, brilliant, Foxy Ist. fucking this, by the way. Yeah, appeal, complained and no, does it for me, mate, does it? Does it for me? Your Scotty, she's got to do it for you and she's my hands are tied. So No, guys and dolls. Use last year's set from our town. Now a couple of things. Guys and dolls. It was a nineteen fifty Broadway show by Frank Losser. It won the Tony that year and got a film version in nineteen in Frank soon after Marlon Brando and Gene Simmons, not the sticking out yeah, sticking out face makeup love gun one. Obviously, the famous song that we all know from it, of course, is guys and dolls were just a bunch of crazy guys and dolls. It's not. It's an episode of the Simpsons, but you get the idea. Just the joke here is, by the way, using the set from our town. Our town famously doesn't have a set, and kind of budge the joke, you know. Yeah, I liked that. I liked it. Yeah, it's good, isn't it? Yeah, and there's a lot of kind of there's a lot of funny little bits in this. I think this is probably going to be quite a long episode because I think we both love this, didn't we? Yeah, I think it's aged brilliantly well, except for some of the CG which will come to they're leaving. She says she's forgot her keys and she needs to go back into the darkened school because all the lights are off and you can't put lights back on. Apparently. Oh yeah, that's that's a rule. Yeah, she figured she she goes into her office, gets the keys and coach Willis Robert Patrick's there. He won't let it leave without a pencil. It's like, you look really pretty and I really want to borrow a pencil. Yeah, okay, and do you know what, here's your pencil. Why don't you and your pens are going to sleep it off. And what does he do? Text through her hand. Plunges it right through her hand. I looked this up. Good, I'm glad you did, because, well, just to see if I was looking at and since we're people, put pencils through hands. The only thing I can find recently, because there was an an eight year old in California's hospitalized after a billy stabbed a pencil through his knee. She that's that's just the idea of broken knees and ship is no good. I would not be a good mob enforce I couldn't find any. What all I found was bloody assholes doing magic tricks on Youtube, and I stand by this. It's not magic if you could edit a video. Yeah, to Piss off. Yeah, you need to see it in the flash if you did bud upon but what I thought was, and again for the video, this works like there's bones there, there's like there's a is there a? Yeah, yeah, there's Ale. Yeah, all right, fucking Jesus God. Yeah, alright, in the hands and fenails. And it's a good effect though, this putty hand. I liked it. She needs him in the plums and runs for it. Finds the door chained. Where is the door? The doors chained out of nowhere, and you kind of like, I don't know how's that happened, and we can kind of guess in a moment or two. She knocks coach the ground and escapes the set of scissors once again, finds that she's keyless. She's fucking useless. She makes it out and locks coaching, losing the scissors. Ms Olsen picks them up and stabs at the death of them. Is fucking slow motion. What's wrong with the face thing, Pretty Graham? Yeah, now this massive long opening scene. You had an issue with the music. Yes, what's the crack? I just there's bad enough for we're trying to get pink floyd to put music on streaming media and stuff like that. They can. They completely take a cracking song like breaking the wall and just ref it and just and get other people to sing. Don't they like it? Leave it alone. It's a perfect piece of music. Yet, Hey, class of ninety nine, leave that song along, that song on your class of night in night. John. I'm looking at it because I didn't write it down. So what's the point? Short term, American alternate rock Super Group, Super Group bunny ears, inverted commas right, consisting of members of notable rock bands. Okay, and there's a couple of notable rock bands here and some ship Lane Staley of Alice in change, I don't know, Tom Morrello, raged against some machine. You know him, Stephen Perkins, Anthony to his mates from Jay's addiction, Martin Lynn, noble novel, from the Novel Porno for Pyros, I don't know, and Matt Serlick, from one of Rachel's favorite bands, matchbox twenty. Water load of fucking bollocks they are. And that is it. They got together for that, just giving rap. Yeah, and in fact it's so good, such a good song, John. I'm gonnaice to get some facts about it. Another brick and all. Part two is the one that we know of the three parts, written as a protest song against corporate punishment, which was out ard in state schools in the UK, nine six and private schools in which explains so much of what is wrong with our current government. Yeah, it was number one in deep breath, Australia, Canada, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Israel, New Zealand, Norway, Portugals said it again, Sweden, Switzerland, UK, USA, and sold four million copies worldwide. Not Too Shabby. That's that's physical copies. Yeah, well, yeah, yeah, would have all been physical copies, but none of this streaming bollocks here. Mate. So it was three part of composition by Pink Floyd from nineties, seventy nine, and it was classed as a rock opera. Yeah, I love that. Have you? Have you seen another brick in the what have you seen? Is it another brick in the world the film? Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, horrifying stuff. It really was going to back in the day. I love that. Scary, scary Shite. A little bit of background on this school, by the way. Harrington high not real. Herrington as a town also not real. Filmed in western Lockhart, Texas, which is known as the barbecue capital of Texas, which I assume that's the next town along from Cowboyville and ship larger county. Probably definitely come at me, Texans, because you wear those healed boots, don't you either, Go Ching, Ching Ching everywhere you walk, sports pose, Tottingham Hotspurs. Yeah, but I like the fact that it's not a real place. Yep, right, this bit we go through here with with the kids. You kind of meet them all and you get their names, which is brilliant if you're doing a podcast about this, because he gets it right down who they are. Number one is Zeke Josh Hartnett and written in his Mustang, and I'm fucking wrong. I know it's not a Mustang. Now I've written it down, but nice one, pacy, I mean Casey Elijah. Would he gets rammed at this post ball's first Danny. Yeah, it's kind of like Shit. That is pretty nasty. testical trauma is a great name for a band. Is when testicles are hurt by force, the cover gets torn or shattered and blood can leak into the scrotum until it becomes tense, which can lead to infection. God, just don't keep seeing it. Stop saying testical trauma. This Delilah, my least favorite character this whole yes, yes, Georgana bet brewster, right, good looking lassie, which is on about these stay Lorder lips take seventy two hours to apply. Could not find anything state Lawder Lips, by the way. However, I did find out State Lawder was found in New York City by the woman of the same name. She was the only female to feature in the twenty most influential business geniuses of the twentieth century, as published by Time magazine. What. Yeah, so everybody else? That's amazing. Probably trump was in that. I assumed so. And she she was a sister. In the fast few days, didn't she state Lauder fucking else, she did Jordans in front of all my bowels. Of all you're paying friends, and that's the thing, John, nothing about paying. But you know she was the sister because, as we noticed, all about firmly ward, firmly, this leaders a Zi family and respect. Get my pub stand is the quarterback that we saw before and Delilah's boyfriend. Yeah, stokely clear devalt go, kind of bit bit goth kids. You know, like really low budget out of the fact of the craft. Yes, yeah, I always forget her name and listeners are screaming boys in water boys. She isn't water boy. Yeah, and that Nicholas Cage Um port of call, you know, the Fred Lieutenant bad lieutenant potkole rotten, absolute piece of ship, that film. Anyway. Elijah Wood was the first person, apparently, to cross Niagara Falls by rope as part of an adrenaline challenge. Went. Don't ask. Josh Hartnett turned down the following rolls. whoever. This kid's brilliant spider man, Super Man and Batman. Do you know what he didn't turn down, though? A film about a haircutting competition in Keith Lee, West Yorkshire. I think it's called blow dry or blow job or something. Seriously, yeah, Alan Rickman's Dad Jesus because, yeah, yeah, when we do a Yorkshire Month we'll do that. Cleared about is named after the last volume in author Lawrence de Moles, the Alexandria Quartet novels. I don't know what they are. I didn't look into them, I was busy looking at the other books. Jordana Brewster, the faculty was the first film yet know what facts, but sorry, mate. Yeah, we've got to get that, we've got to get right. And then there's this new kid, Mary Beth something, something, something's got about seven hundred names and she yeah, yeah, God, and a new kid. I've got a clue. KLEX Klan Sense Zeke, selling fake ID of the brother from that seventies show. Yeah, yeah, I was. I was looking up by misdemeanors or possession of fake ideas in America, Da up to one year's jail term, summary Probation, community service and or money toor finds up to you a thousand dollars. They'll put you in prison for fucking out, won't they? Because it's a business loving, loving. I smoked cigarettes and then everything, just sitting there smoking, just getting it on. So I'll double checked this as well, because I was unsure to this. Remember that you used to be able to smoke around about hospitals, and then he stopped all that. Yes, apparently it was the same in schools. Adults could smoke in around schools and then my support portion of the districts prohibited it from the short of phased out from sixte Al Right. Well, it was the same sort of idea, because I was. I was always wondered that. I was like, I don't actually they smoke rear schools, but apparently not. You could. You could smoke in our school staff room when I was a kid. I think it's just must be the American ones, because it just comes. So you can't smoke. You text many guns in as you want. Yeah, yeah, you have to, you can. Need to protect us over the smokers. I'm gonna Kill Cancer, I'm gonna Kill Cancer, I'm going to shoot it in the fucking face. And basically all the kids in the background are absolute pricks, all fighting, arguing, these lasses, crashing the car. And we learned that Zeke is selling this stuff. He's throwing in this drug, isn't he? Inside? Yeah, Scat, he calls it, which makes anything else any other name other than like ship. Yeah, go on, anything else. But they were in Blue Biros. In fact, I'm waving at the screen now, a green one and a black one, blue one big crystal, which I'm using to keep track of. The hanks introduced nine and in two thousand and six they sold their hundred billion. One Jesus crazy that the best selling pen in the world and the Manhattan Museum of Modern Art has made it a permanent fixture because this fuck all else going on. And I guess there are six types of point with eighteen coors. There you go. And, as I say, Black Green, I think that might be. That's a purple one. It's not a blue one anyway. But using all my wife's good pens, kicking off right in the faculty room, there's this teacher, Harry Ah and you we're gonna me all the teachers as we go on, all the faculty, and I'll kind of cover them when we cover them, but Harry was one that I was particularly interesting. Did you recognize this guy? Is that? Is that the guy with the Gender Big Fat Guy? Yeah, so it was. I felt it was a film critic when he well, yeah, kind of. Yeah, Harry Knowles, he's called. So he was. He was in the Austin Film Critic Association and you go and kicked it for sexual harassment and correct. Yeah, absolutely. Yeah, AIn'tick. Cool news was his website and yeah, he got he got kicked out for assault, sexually assaulting Jasmine Baker in two thousand at the Alamo drafthouse in Austin. Apparently he was also very easily bought by studios for reviews around about the timing of this. So I can't help thinking he might have been given this role, not speaking role, for that to bump up. Yeah, absolutely, if I don't think you needed it, and it's a lot of fun. Yeah, it was. Then a couple of things and it was like he's an alien in Phantom menace as well. Apparently, apparently he's talking the nurse. The nurse is sick, Salmahayak war. Yeah, I love the way you looked into the living room there and make sure Kirsty wasn't hearing you talk about Salmahayak. So, yeah, the she says because she's full of full of cold, and if you're sick, why don't you take take a day off? It's just I'm saving all my sick days for when I feel better. We've all been there. That's a good show. So she's trying to quiet. She's doing a ship job. Sick days. John, would you believe in America, in the in in jobs and work in America, the average for an American worker in the private sector is seven six days a year, just seven, which is astonishing. It starts in the first year at seven and it builds up, which is astonishing, astonishing, astonishing, and the reason that is so astonishing is I get I get six months paid, six months unpaid, and I've only been in my job. When you're going to use all that tomorrow. So all that, we kind of meet all these staff, I like the science teacher who's basically trying to chat up sell Ma hi, ex nurse, isn't it? And then he's a line is. Well, I might as well put a penny in my eye, which is this brilliant kind of foreshadowing of what's going to happen to again. Oh, he was John John Stewart of the whatever the American things called that. I don't think I'll watch a lot of we didn't really get it over it, did we? No, did you? Did you catching the NEMES character? Yes, but it's later on. Go for it, and I was asking. All right, yes, yes, I did. Yes, so he is. She's a nurse, Harper, you put me on the spot here, Lad Edward. All right, Edward, Edward Furlong, Edward like that, Edward Furlong. Yeah, that Edward for a long who's been clean for four years, by the way. That's enough factor throwing. But I just read Edward for long has been has been clean for the last four years. Okay, result, yeah, exactly, but jild actor going wrong, and that's actor actor inverted. Commas so, Ms Olsen comes in looking less dowdy. Her and coach are drinking all the water in the class. We've got MS Burke, Fam Ka Jansen. We only we only looked at two weeks ago and she's very different in this, isn't she nervous? Dowdy, nobody, confident. No, talking about Robinson crusoe and she said what was crusoe most afraid of? And he says callous is she said, well, no, it was the isolation. Robinson crusoe is obviously everybody's favorite dilute injuice book by Daniel don't call me Willem Dafoe from sevent and a castaway that spends twenty eight years on a remote island without a volleyball called Wilson. Well, that means cry at least seventeen for that ball. He's rude, he's a smart ass. They claim that. You know, Stan tells Delilah that that he's quitting the team and she's worried he's throwing away his chance at a scholarship. But also she's more worried that she's head cheerleader. He's the quarterback and them's the rules. You can't break, break the rules of high school. DICKHEAD. Yeah, he's a load of things as well, that boy. He's been in launce. I didn't recognize him out of a thing it was. I'm sure he was in a wheezer video. Al Right, okay, well, what him and Fonzie? A little respect? I'm sure it was that. A little respect, all right, okay, Alright, oh, he's maybe it's maybe, maybe he's in that, that loser film. You know that they did spurt bag for maybe that with the guy that fucked the pie and the lassie that got the rose petals on the tits, Dana Kroyd. Thanks to Joshin Amanda Wilson for in forming me that the FBS, who are the governing body of schools colleges, allows eighty five scholarships each year for sports. Sorry, for football it's not many, not many, so thanks very much for that. That's how I would have got my education. Yeah, yeah, but we don't need no education. Mr Take Daniel von Bergen. As we said, super troopers really boring history lesson drinking boost from this Cup, isn't he? Yeah, and stand Correctis as you want to be. On chapter five, Mary Beth approaches Stokes Lee at break. She's Reading Double Star by Robert Heinlan. Robert Heinland was a sci Fi writer. He wrote starship troopers. Previous episode won four Hugo Awards for double stance, starship troopers, stranger in strange land, which is the only one of his I've read, and the moon is a harsh mistress, and then I get that one by the rest or just Martin is reel. Okay. Delilah comes along and basically says don't, don't hang around with stokes lead because she's wearing different shades of black and calls her a violent lesbian, so which stokes stokes storms off. Basically she's a piece of ship. She goes from being a piece of ship to being a piece of ship to then not being a character. Yes, you're pointless, absolutely pointless. Casey's eating lunch alone on the bleachers and finds this insect pod's approached by the coach Um and he says, have you ever considered trying out? He says I don't think a person should run unless he's being chastede. It's a great line. And then there is for shadowing. He's not happy about running. He doesn't think anyone should run, but he's quite happy to walk to fucking more door. He really has it. Walks at pistol, he walks at Pacy, I mean Casey. He does like Harold from neighbors in the science class. Casey approaches Mr Edward Furlong with the pod. Well Stokes, he tells Mary, but she's not gay. She just doesn't like people and that's her way of keeping because in apparently people didn't want to anger out anybody. This pod look like fucking Cocuna out of pokemon. What's going on there? Furlong suggests it could be a new species. And then they spill a bit of water on it and it comes back to life. Put it in this aquarium and it grows these tendrils. Done it and as he's about to kind of put his finger and it reproduces and when he gets his finger near it, this massive teeth, like C G I teeth, didn't look great and bit him at the pool. STANTELL's coaches quitting. A coach who has gone from basically up fucking here. At the start of the movie he's just like well, you know, you're just gonna do what you're gonna do. I can't I can't do anything about that. You're telling me this the day before, you know, this the day of my daughter's wedding. And Yeah, he just basically lets him get on with it and stand saves Casey from usher in the locker room. Yeah, exactly. I mean I think he's maybe in a couple of other films as as she got like twenty kids or something. I'm sure that's the thing I heard once. I didn't do any looking into rusher. I've done all my looking into everybody else, but yeah, I'm sure I think you've got about twenty kids. Jesus here must be he was ushered. He goes into he heads into the shower. I noticed he'd got some soap on a rope. It's kind of kind of it. I haven't seen soap in the rope for ages still widely available, but in two thousand and nine the Catholic Church stopped companies selling soap on a rope or, as it was known, as pope on a rope, because Holy Father only wants his facing under age genitals. I mean might not be true. Are you liking these Catholic Church jokes? Listeners for you? Are we getting canceled? Yeah, we might be. When he's in the shower, here comes Mrs Brummel with like a Meltie face, a face like one of the aliens out of they live, and she's just going they want everyone. I can't breathe, I can't breathe. And he grabs her like, hugs her, and scalp comes away in his hand just it slops all the folio. Fantastic. Olsen explains she has cancer, because cancer makes your scalp come away from your head. And at Zeke's car he's selling this vhs of Nev Campbell and Jennifer Love Hewittt fully frontal naked. Now, of course, me being me, I had to have a little bit of a look to find out what that could be. The only thing Nev Campbell and Jennifer love Hewett have been in together. It's part of five. No Fall Front. No Fall Front, only party of five. Certainly not in the first two series I watched there wasn't. He didn't feel front of Nive Campbell. And was it world things? No, Denise Richards. You got to see her. She did for them to everybody was getting to see that. Absolutely money well spent. Ye, Delilah and Casey are in the Faculty Lounge Looking for Goss for the school paper. He says you could be a cool human when you're not being a grade a bitch. Okay, and she's like are you hitting on me? Not, everyone's fucking hitting on your doll, Olsen and the coach. They come back. Casey and Delilah locked themselves in the cupboard. Brummel died because she was too old. Almost the full faculty have now been commuted. I just thought it's so good. Here's nurse Harper. She's still sick, so we know that something wrong with her. They grab her, knock at the ground and spit this bug into her. He was like in the cupboard. The kids find brummels corps and then burst out. Not Robert Patrick and this stunt double. It was blatantly Robert Patrick. Then up to the ground and this old lady stunt double up to the ground. They're running away. Casey slips over and Delilah keeps on running because obviously she's she can be pretty cool when she's not being a grade a coward. So that night the cops, case and his parents are looking for the body. Now, did you spot this nineties power suit the dad was where? Casey's Dad was wearing shoulder pads like him? Okay, I think I think he thought he was in swingers. I think he thought he was in swing but no, deditly not. They go in with the cops and they find resuscitation Annie in the closet, this thing that I've never had to use because I don't think we ever did this at school. Don't know if you do. I think we did it in first in but yeah, never, never in school. Yeah, resuscitation Annie, developed by Norwegian toymaker Asmund lateral and Peter Safer. Good, yeah, and absolutely freaky looking fucking thing. They explain that that they also hurt the nurse and said no, we didn't. She's epileptic and she suffers from Grand Maus. Grand Maus are seizures the last only a matter of minutes but can be so severe they cause a victim to harm themselves during today they're known as tonic clonic seizures, which I think sounds like something you clean your asshole out with. I know it as an im a, actually stealing off me. What about cleaning your asshole out as well? Okay, the parents take him home after drake has taken this cop into the office and he comes out like subtly changed a hunt of a wink, as if, yeah, Alien Wink. They get him home. They said no phone, no int ripping out this physical mode. Yeah, musical music. So it is getting blast and she's got the porno under the bed, the Hump, the phone, Humph, and it was boobs magazine, not a real magazine, but just got a lot of Ms Bok A. You. Yeah, but then he's got a print, and then he's got to retaining print. Yeah, I never seen that, my laef. No, I had no idea. And then for some reason he does something and he's got this walking like what was that about? Like this walking Meccanno animal thing didn't make any sense. And then he jumps out the window. He spots the faculty as and then slips off this fucking Verandam thing and his dad calls him in, but the faculty aren't there. You know, his dad was still holding NIMBIMBS, was he? Yeah, he was. Then we see the kind of the blind coming down and it's the outline of one of the teachers, isn't it one of the faculty? or so they're going to get mom and dad the next day as they drop him off, as dad drops him off at school, Dad and culture talking, Delilah Grabs Casey. She's got glasses on and her hair tied up. Yeah, and commit a call. Exactly who she's hardly Martin landow in, that mission, impossible TV show, and he's again a reference for fucking nobody. that. Yeah, we know. Sunday morning, sixties TV in the faculty lines. are going through all this water and not drinking coffee anymore and your man's off the booze. Maybe that's what I maybe that's I've stopped drinking booze because I'm an alien. I will be doing a lot more fucking better stuff with my time than this fucking you know you've been probing left, Rinde, center. Stan tells stokes that he's quit. The team explains that he got an a on biology instead of a d because of his winning arm, because he had a good arm. Stokes, he's been watching him, following, following him, and he says I want to be a D student. I deserve that D I love the D is not quite what he says. Mr Take says he wants to live in history of the family. UH, stands like, is this going to be on the test? And it's just this line of this isn't the test. Brilliant, fantastic character. There's a cure. Kids waiting for Ers here exam in a class and the police are helping. So it's all starting to look a little bit shady. Now zeke spots that there's a couple who were scrapping previously. The LAD's chill to fuck. She's like shouting at him, screaming at him. Do you know how his lad was? I remember his face and like I know that guy was in their scream movies. Hang what was a parody of it, a scary movie. Get a movie. He was a boyfriend in the first one that shot her. What these two boys are back for some scat. They want all he's got and he gives them a load, but they keep asking. They're blating the aliens. Yeah, have you got any more in your car? Have you got any more at home? So he keeps put some in his pocket. Ms Burke's now dressed like she's going to a fucking cocktail party right. She plays three characters in this. She played he's the Mousey one. She plays shouty, Screamy, fucking nutty teacher here as the alien. She calls him a diculous excuse for a little boy and storms off. Yep Um when he tries to offer a chocolate flavored laxatives, which is the last thing I need, and some Cherry Johnny's. Yeah, magnums, weren't he there were. Yeah, so I'll look this up because I thought Magnum was to do with the size it, but no, it's it's I think that Americans think Magnum's apparently the size, but it's the same lengths and standards. circumferences are normal journey. So I don't really understand why either go or is that magnums, because it's pretty much the same size as standard johnny bags. I tend to always put magnums on my p I. Robert Homden. Yeah, if you wanted John You could indeed by twenty more Cherry Johnny's five pounds. THIRD FROM CONDOM OUTLET DOT COM. How do we know there are more cherries? May I am not buying Johnny from Condom Outlet Dot Com. Nope. Casey explains to Stokes Lee what's going on and she said it sounds like pod people from the body snatches. Body snatches are rip off from the Puppet Masters, from Robert Heinlein. Which one is your body snatchers film, John Leland? Okay, yeah, I think that was the scariest. The dog with the person's face was just freaking yeah, yeah, yeah, just the end, the fact that it's kind of like fuck, yeah, yeah, he just points at her. screeture noises horrific, don't I mean, I'm sure I will watch it again at some point, but I saw that probably as a teenager, scared the shit that. I prefer the fifties one. Yeah, where at the end he looks in the he looks in the wagon and it's these prop pods. I love that and that's that's so cute. Writer. Today standards, it was, even though it was the subject was quite horrephic. It was quite quite felt quite hormly in the it. This, this bit ripped my fucking knitting. By the way, Casey explains he thinks film directors are aliens setting us up for a proper invasion. Spielberg's Et and son and felds get shorty, I'm sorry, I mean men in black, and I'm kind of like yeah, okay, I get it. That Robert Rodriguez. He's kind of going, I'm a director, I'm talking about film directors. Give me a fucking dump truck full of cash to make more of these. No, don't totally tot when he was seen, the whole gang head to science class to see the creature is now gone. Casey explains his theory on Aliens. Zeke and Mary Beth head to this the labs oars, which is the next room across which is where he gets his stuff for SCAT, and they're about to snug to garbagees medication, which I know that song very, very well. Off Two point oh to the garbage album of the same year. It's not a single. I thought it was number one in the UK and Iceland album but nowhere else. That's a great album. It's their teacher comes in and yeah, John Stewart comes in, but not before Zeke's come in trying to make a tweat of himself, pretending like or whatever. They've heard, and Casey explains that you think that that the that they're aliens. He attacks them Zeke's rips off this fucking this blade yellow teen things, slices off his fingers, which looks great for a second and then you see the fingers crawling across the floor. Ray Harry housings crying, and then they smash him in the eye with the with the I've written, shot penning shot nail, which basically melts his face. Yes, and again it's back to what he says. I might as well stick a penny in my eye or yeah, it was coming. This is a bit of Stokes, he said. Isn't this a bit where someone says, let's get out here and stand, let's get out of here. Casey grabs the weak Acuna thing and they had for the car. Everyone's acting calm and weird and scary as they kind of head out. Yeah, they get out of dodge in the car. There's nothing on the radio and like a police roadblock, isn't there? That they speed away from. was just leading shimming show. It was a little bit like show white beetle. They get to his place. He's got an apothecary in the garage like something he's turning fucking leading a gold or something, an episode of friends. He's rich and a prick and he's been grinding up caffeine pills for I took a lot of pro plus in college. I think everybody did. Forward when it we're coffee, just for that extra kick, that's right. Yeah, just because you've done a full out of college and you're going out that night. Yeah, there isn't any touch things is an energies just wasn't red from you. If you were lucky, you got Lucas aid sport, because it's ISOTONIC. We find out that he owns a gun, which is basically Chekhov's gun maybe, and he cuts a bit off the pod and puts it in with Oscar, that wait mace. It takes over the poor thing and he wrings its neck. He could to play three blind maze, lay down and wait again, which is monthy python reference for nobody. He cuts it open to find that it's a dried out the little mouse, and he empties a penn of scat onto this rest in this pod that melts like salt on a slug. stokesly explains you've got to get the master and that will free everyone else, because school kids are fucking geniuses. Yes, they're basically figuring out that the alien people are emotionless, the puppets. It's a puppet master. They argue amongst one another. Any one of them could be an alien. Zeke solution is for them to snort a Byro. So there's obviously homost the other thing, yes, one like that scene. It's not a homage. It's fucking robbed, robbed off this thing, isn't it? Yeah, I went to school with and I do put by rows up his nose. He lays tarmac for a living now, so really just old it. Casey takes it and starts giggling, because caffeine bills do that. Oh No, it's great cackle. As little radio flyer stand grabs the gun and threatened Zeke, who takes it and stand does the same stokes. He says I'm not putting up that on my nose. Zeke says aliens are taking over. Weigh it up. It's quite a good lie actually. Delilah and Marybeth in the last two, and they won't do it. Mary Beth claims to BE ALLERGIC TO ASPIRIN. There's no aspirin in that. She does it, tips her head back and snorts. Delilah doesn't, and we get to see her with all these crawley things which look good. Casey grabs the gun but won't shoot her. stokesly does missus, and Delilah basically smashes up this drugloud throwing herself about. She's forgotten out to walk, and then she jumps in the waiting school learning car being driven by Mr Tate. What's going on? It's like as if there have been the speaking teachers. Hi've mimed, of course. So they head back to the school, which is Friday Night Lights. It's huge crowd at the game, with the Fart Rock version of another brick in the walls. Back as far as the team goes, they're called the Hornets. A spot. They were called the Hornets. There's only one or Charlotte Hornets. Charlotte Hornets, yeah, yeah, that's good to basketball. Hornets are the largest of the wasps and massive fucking assholes. The Asian giant Hornet stings cause thirty to fifty deaths annually in Japan. Would, yeah, would you believe it? And of course all American football teams have got stupid names. So, John, with that in mind, I want you to tell me if the next seven ones that I mentioned are a football team or a ship ball team? All right, football team if it's real, shipball team if it's not. Didn't really figure out the title, so you know whatever. Number one, the Minnesota Golfers. A. The Minnesota Golfers. Oh, it's a team. A. Number two, the Maryland terrapins, not sty. So it's a real football team. Yes, correct, it's a real football team. Number three, the Chicago outfits. Shut correct, it's not real. I made that one up. Number four, the wake forest demon deacons, real fucking writers, one of their shirts. Number five, the Kingston Cong's. Oh God, not made. That's a good name. Get out getting glace. Get that team made. Number six, the Martha's vineyard seamen. You're right, Rad number seven, the South Carolina Game Cocks. It is. Yeah, the job about. And so when this is going on it's funnish to where you're talking about Hornets. I've I've picked up a wee think about bees, because we're saying killed the queen and everybody go back to normal. So I just for some reason looked out to queen bees and seeing what would happened to be killed a queen. Okay, so that's what I got. So, unfortunately, queenless Corny cannot survive or for a sustained paid and absolutely queen bee effects of behavior working the worker bees. They's become aggressive. Worker bees may continue to lay eggs, but because there's no queeny finalizing, they're all drones instead of workers. All Right, knew that, you scientists, obviously, but that's that sounds pretty cool, man. Well, look, no, cool, don't. Don't kill Queen Bees. Don't, don't. You don't kill any bees place. All through the game the team are putting bugs in the ears of the other team and the tackle. It's good. This better, like Robert Patrick's doing. Amazing facial word, brilliant and yeah, yeah, fantastic stuff, like Henry clearing the water boy whenever. Yeah, in the gym. Principal Drake's here, by the way, Principal Drake, that the first person approached me. Principal Drake, did you see? This was Gillian Anderson. Oh, good, yes, yeah, yeah, again, would have been a great choice. Yeah, I think they tire up because they're certain that she's the she's the queen in this badminton net. She needs to snort the thing that she's not going to do it. So she woke some Zeke shoots are between the eyes. Yeah, just that. Nowhere. BLAMO as cases about to stab her. She comes back to life and Mary Beth throws the whole case of spun. Yes, yes, I'm melting, melting world. What the world? Good affection? There's a lot of it Israel. Where was you? Throw? Well, why? Now he knows. He's seen the end of the film. Games over in the town's heading home. Stand heads out to get the coach because there's certain now it's going to be him. Stokes. He grabs, grabs him and snugs him before he goes because she doesn't want him to die. Having not done that. Outside in the rain, coaching, the players have got their mouths open, tendrils out to the rain. Looks Great. It's like a lightning strike and you see like the alien behind yeah, and that still looks amazing. It's a really good gift as well, so I'll have to do that when I'm posting about it. Stands back at the door. They throw him a Biro wonder and he empties it away. It's beautiful. There's no pain, no fear. Se Open the door. Zeke threatens him through the door with a gun. Mum, he explains that he's got Schumer left in his car on the land and that's the stuff out of sky. Rim stiff. They head out him and Casey threw through the lot full of school busses. I was going, look at all those school busses, loads school busses there. We haven't seen a school bus in something for ages and ages and ages. By the way, remember we used to see loads of loads of them in films and it's been a while since. Yeah, yeah, I think the last probably we've seen it was in a trip. Yeah, I think so. Bigger score bus manufacturer in the US is the R E V group. They earned two point four billion revenue per year. It's astonishing. It's amazing. You can, you can, fucking you can get a contract doing anything in America. Really can. Oh, I missed this, but you can reattach fingers a maximum twelve hours after they have been slashed off. Throw that in UM cases. The Decoy was a coach and the team, because he can run, that's and he gets caught on the bus wagons by Delilah and as the team start coming through the windows, he escapes out through this. Not only can he run, but he can also fucking jump. You can jump. I thought I was watching again. I thought home coming, as Zeke said, his car and he grabs the shaiser or whatever we're calling it. Miss what's her face? Comes back now, Ms Burke, and again she's still dressed in this gear and everything. Um, she said, I don't want Cherry condoms, but I do want something cherry flavored, and you're like wow, and I think they've kind of got around this by explaining earlier on in a throwaway comment, that he's had to stay back a year, like eighteen or nineteen. Makes Sense. He jumps in the car and she jumps in the back and as he peels away she's trying to worm his ear. He throws his seatbelt on and rams this bus. She is flying out the window. Now what doesn't happen when you fly out a window, John? You don't lose your hand, you don't get get capapitated. You don't get copapitated. That's right. Yeah, but she does. And another rep off of the thing. Very much so. Yeah, and it looks like fucking garbage because they don't have her talking or anything. They just have this. They don't even have her looking at him. The photograph of her face, isn't it? Photograph of the face going along, not even moving eyes, and just as she kind of finds the rest of the body, he's like, fuck this, I am out here. It was obviously that unimpressed with the effect. Exactly in the gym, Mary Beth and Stokes, they are talking in I know you're proud of being the outsider, but aren't you tired of being something you're not? I know I am. And then she gets all wavy arms and sucking licorice whips, because it turns out she's the massive squids. It turns out this huge fucking squid thing. She chases stokes Lee and the just arrived Casey into the pool. And she jumps into this pool and she's she's sacking super swimmer, like old Phelps, isn't she? The Queen Drags stokes the under the water, but Casey throws a rope and saves her. In the Locker Room, Z comes in, stokes. He calls out to him, but Mary Beth also calls out to him as Human Mary Beth, naked with the Nipples, naked with, yeah, with Photoshop Nipples, out answer me this. Why are you naked? It's q good he takes stokes as his side, but it turns out stokes he's got squid snogs it does. He locks her in this equipment cage. Casey's made to take some more of the fucking Skank by Zeke, who then gets thrown across the locker room and knocked out. Mary best calling after Casey, explaining her world was endless oceans till it dried up and she escaped. She wanted to make her very much like home, part of the same one feeling. One Mass Mary Beth becomes a true form and chases him into the gym. Now I love this because he sets this bleacher to retract and a great strategy and then nearly gets fucking caught himself. But it just so happens that he's a really strong athletic nerdy, so he kind of runs out just as it gets caught U he stabs her in the eye and she spits jazz written Jizz Tadpoles here in his face, which is who practical effics. YEA, they fall out. As she dies. He heads over at stokely she's alive, with some dead ones next to her, and we got one last jump scare. Zeke smashes on the batting cage. Do we really need that? Do we really need it? One month later? One month later, and just just because we're doing fucking show not tell. So we do tell, not show. In this we've got news reporter going. It's a month or since the and give you away. Zeke's on the team. Uh, and fucking we miss fucking Burke's watching from the bleach. Did he lay up that factual quickly? Yeah, what the fuck? And he's said and he gets put out that cigarette and get back on the team like that is surely that would surely get you fucking kids. Yeah, these reporters are doing a new story. Stokesle and scatter and stand a winching. It turns out Casey and Delilah a thing as well. And he is Time magazine Man of the year. I think. Sure have changed, haven't they? No, no, no, no, no, no, it's a bad old wasts song and nw to do. Yeah, man, time, man of the year night in ninety nine, John Jeff Bezos. What for? Taking Daddy's money? Probably, yeah, bad year. Yeah, bad indeed. What else have you got? That's that? Let's say that your neck and main left branch center. I was deleting them left her Queen B thing at the India. Oh, I'm sorry, mate, we need to get a bit better at this night at least. No, it's nous. Were just doing a thing. The facts are a harsh mistress. Oh No, I've got one thing, John, I've got one thing. Hang on, hang on, the car. Oh, yes, so you did. We both of the car. Sure as H Nineteen Seventy pointy act here, nice sexy machine and absolutely astonished. John, you didn't have the gun. I think we've covered a gun. It's not like you do not have the good one. We have, but it's a cult detective special. Yes, but there, there it is. I'm putting it on there, and it's only because I remember seeing that gun. So smashing Um Asian giant Hornet. We have done sick days.

No, there was horseplay written on the shower wall. No, horseplay. Horseplay is defined as rough, boisterous play. Horses rough and boisterous. I don't get that. No, that's a weird one. A couple of facts from the back of the making of the film, released Christmas Day night in the US, grossed forty point three million domestic and sixty three million worldwide, from a budget of just fifteen. Mel Zeke is the only character not to get infected throughout the film. Oh Yeah, Tommy Hill figure provided clothing for the film in exchange for the cast to feature in an advert. That's a good one. Well, they're all good ones, aren't they? If you don't know them. We've got outtown. We've got Jillian Anderson. Oh, the tattooed girl, Mary Beth Askeworth, the office is, is Robert Rodriguez Sister, Jessica Alba, was considered for Delilah, but she was too good an actor. I added that last bit. Sherylyn Fenn was Rodriguez first choice to play burke in a while. Yeah, and that is usher's dew film. Right. There you go that that ushered him into star in other films. How do you think we got on Gordo? Oh, little bit higher, seventy six. Yeah, bad, because we always as I was going through my facts in my head and like he's got this, he's got this he's got this.

On today's special 4th of July episode, Jason kicks things off with a few thoughts on blockbuster trade that saw the Utah Jazz send big man Rudy Gobert to the Minnesota Timberwolves. Folks around the NBA insist that the Jazz 'won' the trade since they got 4 first round picks in the deal, but J-Mac argues that Minnesota deserves credit for pushing all in in hopes of cracking the top-4 of the Western Conference; the T'Wolves should be one of the top teams in the West during the regular season, and given the franchise's history of mediocrity, any type of postseason run should be viewed as a home run. Moreover, have you seen what the Jazz roster looks like these days? Gross. They're more likely to trade Donovan Mitchell and start tanking their way to the bottom than they are to make the playoffs next season. Later, actor/singer Leon swings by to discuss why some cast members on the set of the hoops classic ‘Above the Rim' were jealous of his wardrobe, what it was like playing pickup with Michael Jordan back in college, how Kevin Durant's trade demand out of Brooklyn could impact the rest of the NBA moving forward, why it was such a big mistake for Durant to leave the Golden State Warriors, how Jordan's Bulls would have fared against the Durant-Steph Curry Warriors, and much more!

Lars Magnus Ericsson was working for the Swedish government that made telegraph equipment in the 1870s when he started a little telegraph repair shop in 1976. That was the same year the telephone was invented. After fixing other people's telegraphs and then telephones he started a company making his own telephone equipment. He started making his own equipment and by the 1890s was shipping gear to the UK. As the roaring 20s came, they sold stock to buy other companies and expanded quickly. Early mobile devices used radios to connect mobile phones to wired phone networks and following projects like ALOHANET in the 1970s they expanded to digitize communications, allowing for sending early forms of text messages, the way people might have sent those telegraphs when old Lars was still alive and kicking. At the time, the Swedish state-owned Televerket Radio was dabbling in this space and partnered with Ericsson to take first those messages then as email became a thing, email, to people wirelessly using the 400 to 450 MHz range in Europe and 900 MHz in the US. That standard went to the OSI and became a 1G wireless packet switching network we call Mobitex. Mike Lazaridis was born in Istanbul and moved to Canada in 1966 when he was five, attending the University of Waterloo in 1979. He dropped out of school to take a contract with General Motors to build a networked computer display in 1984. He took out a loan from his parents, got a grant from the Canadian government, and recruited another electrical engineering student, Doug Fregin from the University of Windsor, who designed the first circuit boards. to join him starting a company they called Research in Motion. Mike Barnstijn joined them and they were off to do research.  After a few years doing research projects, they managed to build up a dozen employees and a million in revenues. They became the first Mobitex provider in America and by 1991 shipped the first Mobitex device. They brought in James Balsillie as co-CEO, to handle corporate finance and business development in 1992, a partnership between co-CEOs that would prove fruitful for 20 years.  Some of those work-for-hire projects they'd done involved reading bar codes so they started with point-of-sale, enabling mobile payments and by 1993 shipped RIMGate, a gateway for Mobitex. Then a Mobitex point-of-sale terminal and finally with the establishment of the PCMCIA standard, a  PCMCIP Mobitex modem they called Freedom. Two-way paging had already become a thing and they were ready to venture out of PoS systems. So  in 1995, they took a $5 million investment to develop the RIM 900 OEM radio modem. They also developed a pager they called the Inter@ctive Pager 900 that was capable of  two-way messaging the next year. Then they went public on the Toronto Stock Exchange in 1997. The next year, they sold a licensing deal to IBM for the 900 for $10M dollars. That IBM mark of approval is always a sign that a company is ready to play in an enterprise market. And enterprises increasingly wanted to keep executives just a quick two-way page away. But everyone knew there was a technology convergence on the way. They worked with Ericsson to further the technology and over the next few years competed with SkyTel in the interactive pager market. Enter The Blackberry They knew there was something new coming. Just as the founders know something is coming in Quantum Computing and run a fund for that now. They hired a marketing firm called Lexicon Branding to come up with a name and after they saw the keys on the now-iconic keyboard, the marketing firm suggested BlackBerry. They'd done the research and development and they thought they had a product that was special. So they released the first BlackBerry 850 in Munich in 1999. But those were still using radio networks and more specifically the DataTAC network. The age of mobility was imminent, although we didn't call it that yet. Handspring and Palm each went public in 2000.  In 2000, Research In Motion brought its first cellular phone product in the BlackBerry 957, with push email and internet capability. But then came the dot com bubble. Some thought the Internet might have been a fad and in fact might disappear. But instead the world was actually ready for that mobile convergence. Part of that was developing a great operating system for the time when they released the BlackBerry OS the year before. And in 2000 the BlackBerry was named Product of the Year by InfoWorld.  The new devices took the market by storm and shattered the previous personal information manager market, with shares of that Palm company dropping by over 90% and Palm OS being setup as it's own corporation within a couple of years. People were increasingly glued to their email. While the BlackBerry could do web browsing and faxing over the internet, it was really the integrated email access, phone, and text messaging platform that companies like General Magic had been working on as far back as the early 1990s. The Rise of the BlackBerry The BlackBerry was finally the breakthrough mobile product everyone had been expecting and waiting for. Enterprise-level security, integration with business email like Microsoft's Exchange Server, a QWERTY keyboard that most had grown accustomed to, the option to use a stylus, and a simple menu made the product an instant smash success. And by instant we mean after five years of research and development and a massive financial investment. The Palm owned the PDA market. But the VII cost $599 and the BlackBerry cost $399 at the time (which was far less than the $675 Inter@ctive Pager had cost in the 1990s). The Palm also let us know when we had new messages using the emerging concept of push notifications. 2000 had seen the second version of the BlackBerry OS and their AOL Mobile Communicator had helped them spread the message that the wealthy could have access to their data any time. But by 2001 other carriers were signing on to support devices and BlackBerry was selling bigger and bigger contracts. 5,000 devices, 50,000 devices, 100,000 devices. And a company called Kasten Chase stepped in to develop a secure wireless interface to the Defense Messaging System in the US, which opened up another potential two million people in the defense industry They expanded the service to cover more and more geographies in 2001 and revenues doubled, jumping to 164,000 subscribers by the end of the year. That's when they added wireless downloads so could access all those MIME attachments in email and display them. Finally, reading PDFs on a phone with the help of GoAmerica Communications! And somehow they won a patent for the idea that a single email address could be used on both a mobile device and a desktop. I guess the patent office didn't understand why IMAP  was invented by Mark Crispin at Stanford in the 80s, or why Exchange allowed multiple devices access to the same mailbox. They kept inking contracts with other companies. AT&T added the BlackBerry in 2002 in the era of GSM. The 5810 was the first truly convergent BlackBerry that offered email and a phone in one device with seamless SMS communications. It shipped in the US and the 5820 in Europe and Cingular Wireless jumped on board in the US and Deutsche Telekom in Germany, as well as Vivendi in France, Telecom Italia in Italy, etc. The devices had inched back up to around $500 with service fees ranging from $40 to $100 plus pretty limited data plans. The Tree came out that year but while it was cool and provided a familiar interface to the legions of Palm users, it was clunky and had less options for securing communications. The NSA signed on and by the end of the year they were a truly global operation, raking in revenues of nearly $300 million.  The Buying Torndado They added web-based application in 2003, as well as network printing. They moved to a Java-based interface and added the 6500 series, adding a walkie-talkie function. But that 6200 series at around $200 turned out to be huge. This is when they went into that thing a lot of companies do - they started suing companies like Good and Handspring for infringing on patents they probably never should have been awarded. They eventually lost the cases and paid out tens of millions of dollars in damages. More importantly they took their eyes off innovating, a common mistake in the history of computing companies. Yet there were innovations. They released Blackberry Enterprise Server in 2004 then bolted on connectors to Exchange, Lotus Domino, and allowed for interfacing with XML-based APIs in popular enterprise toolchains of the day. They also later added support for GroupWise. That was one of the last solutions that worked with symmetric key cryptography I can remember using and initially required the devices be cradled to get the necessary keys to secure communications, which then worked over Triple-DES, common at the time. One thing we never liked was that messages did end up living at Research in Motion, even if encrypted at the time. This is one aspect that future types of push communications would resolve. And Microsoft Exchange's ActiveSync.  By 2005 there were CVEs filed for BlackBerry Enterprise Server, racking up 17 in the six years that product shipped up to 5.0 in 2010 before becoming BES 10 and much later Blackberry Enterprise Mobility Management, a cross-platform mobile device management solution. Those BES 4 and 5 support contracts, or T-Support, could cost hundreds of dollars per incident. Microsoft had Windows Mobile clients out that integrated pretty seamlessly with Exchange. But people loved their Blackberries. Other device manufacturers experimented with different modes of interactivity. Microsoft made APIs for pens and keyboards that flipped open. BlackBerry added a trackball in 2006, that was always kind of clunky. Nokia, Ericsson, Motorola, and others were experimenting with new ways to navigate devices, but people were used to menus and even styluses. And they seemed to prefer a look and feel that seemed like what they used for the menuing control systems on HVAC controls, video games, and even the iPod.  The Eye Of The Storm A new paradigm was on the way. Apple's iPhone was released in 2007 and Google's Android OS in 2008. By then the BlackBerry Pearl was shipping and it was clear which devices were better. No one saw the two biggest threats coming. Apple was a consumer company. They were slow to add ActiveSync policies, which many thought would be the corporate answer to mobile management as group policies in Active Directory had become for desktops. Apple  and Google were slow to take the market, as BlackBerry continued to dominate the smartphone industry well into 2010, especially once then-president Barack Obama strong-armed the NSA into allowing him to use a special version of the BlackBerry 8830 World Edition for official communiques. Other world leaders followed suit, as did the leaders of global companies that had previously been luddites when it came to constantly being online. Even Eric Schmidt, then chairman of google loved his Crackberry in 2013, 5 years after the arrival of Android. Looking back, we can see a steady rise in iPhone sales up to the iPhone 4, released in 2010. Many still said they loved the keyboard on their BlackBerries. Organizations had built BES into their networks and had policies dating back to NIST STIGs. Research in Motion owned the enterprise and held over half the US market and a fifth of the global market. That peaked in 2011. BlackBerry put mobility on the map. But companies like AirWatch, founded in 2003 and  MobileIron, founded in 2007, had risen to take a cross-platform approach to the device management aspect of mobile devices. We call them Unified Endpoint Protection products today and companies could suddenly support BlackBerry, Windows Mobile, and iPhones from a single console. Over 50 million Blackberries were being sold a year and the stock was soaring at over $230 a share.  Today, they hold no market share and their stock performance shows it. Even though they've pivoted to more of a device management company, given their decades of experience working with some of the biggest and most secure companies and governments in the world. The Fall Of The BlackBerry The iPhone was beautiful. It had amazing graphics and a full touch screen. It was the very symbol of innovation. The rising tide of the App Store also made it a developers playground (no pun intended). It was more expensive than the Blackberry, but while they didn't cater to the enterprise, they wedged their way in there with first executives and then anyone. Initially because of ActiveSync, which had come along in 1996 mostly to support Windows Mobile, but by Exchange Server 2003 SP 2 could do almost anything Outlook could do - provided software developers like Apple could make the clients work. So by 2011, Exchange clients could automatically locate a server based on an email address (or more to the point based on DNS records for the domain) and work just as webmail, which was open in almost every IIS implementation that worked with Exchange. And Office365 was released in 2011, paving the way to move from on-prem Exchange to what we now call “the cloud.” And Google Mail had been around for 7 years by then and people were putting it on the BlackBerry as well, blending home and office accounts on the same devices at times. In fact, Google licensed Exchange ActiveSync, or EAS in 2009 so support for Gmail was showing up on a variety of devices. BlackBerry had everything companies wanted. But people slowly moved to that new iPhone. Or Androids when decent models of phones started shipping with the OS on them. BlackBerry stuck by that keyboard, even though it was clear that people wanted full touchscreens. The BlackBerry Bold came out in 2009. BlackBerry had not just doubled down with the keyboard instead of full touchscreen, but they tripled down on it. They had released the Storm in 2008 and then the Storm in 2009 but they just had a different kind of customer. Albeit one that was slowly starting to retire. This is the hard thing about being in the buying tornado. We're so busy transacting that we can't think ahead to staying in the eye that we don't see how the world is changing outside of it.  As we saw with companies like Amdahl and Control Data, when we only focus on big customers and ignore the mass market we leave room for entrants in our industries who have more mass appeal. Since the rise of the independent software market following the IBM anti-trust cases, app developers have been a bellwether of successful platforms. And the iPhone revenue split was appealing to say the least.  Sales fell off fast. By 2012, the BlackBerry represented less than 6 percent of smartphones sold and by the start of 2013 that number dropped in half, falling to less than 1 percent in 2014. That's when the White House tested replacements for the Blackberry. There was a small bump in sales when they finally released a product that had competitive specs to the iPhone, but it was shortly lived. The Crackberry craze was officially over.  BlackBerry shot into the mainstream and brought the smartphone with them. They made the devices secure and work seamlessly in corporate environments and for those who could pay money to run BES or BIS. They proved the market and then got stuck in the Innovator's Dilemna. They became all about features that big customers wanted and needed. And so they missed the personal part of personal computing. Apple, as they did with the PC and then graphical user interfaces saw a successful technology and made people salivate over it. They saw how Windows had built a better sandbox for developers and built the best app delivery mechanism the world has seen to date. Google followed suit and managed to take a much larger piece of the market with more competitive pricing.  There is so much we didn't discuss, like the short-lived Playbook tablet from BlackBerry. Or the Priv. Because for the most part, they a device management solution today. The founders are long gone, investing in the next wave of technology: Quantum Computing. The new face of BlackBerry is chasing device management, following adjacencies into security and dabbling in IoT for healthcare and finance. Big ticket types of buys that include red teaming to automotive management to XDR. Maybe their future is in the convergence of post-quantum security, or maybe we'll see their $5.5B market cap get tasty enough for one of those billionaires who really, really, really wants their chicklet keyboard back. Who knows but part of the fun of this is it's a living history.
