Behind the Bastards

There’s a reason the History Channel has produced hundreds of documentaries about Hitler but only a few about Dwight D. Eisenhower. Bad guys (and gals) are eternally fascinating. Behind the Bastards dives in past the Cliffs Notes of the worst humans in history and exposes the bizarre realities of their lives. Listeners will learn about the young adult novels that helped Hitler form his monstrous ideology, the founder of Blackwater’s insane quest to build his own Air Force, the bizarre lives of the sons and daughters of dictators and Saddam Hussein’s side career as a trashy romance novelist.

In 1980, cocaine was captivating and corrupting Miami. The carcass, they just peeled everybody, it was out. Setting an aspiring private investigator on a collision course with corruption and multiple murders. The detective agency would turn out to be a front for a drug pilot. Would Claime did it all for the CIA? I'm Lauren Bright-Pacheco. Join me for murder in Miami. Check my walking into the devil's den. Listen to murder in Miami on the I Heart Radio app, Apple Podcasts, or wherever you get your podcasts. On the new podcast, The Turning, Room of Mirrors. We look beneath the delicate veneer of American ballet and the culture formed by its most influential figure, George Balanjee. He used to say, what are you looking at, dear? You can't see you, only I can see you. What you're doing is larger than yourself, almost like a religion. Like, he was a god. Listen to The Turning, Room of Mirrors on the I Heart Radio app, Apple Podcasts, or wherever you get your podcasts. In 1968, five black girls repicked up by police after running away from a reform school in Mount Meg's Alabama. I'm writer and reporter Josie Defi Rice. And in a new podcast, I investigate the abuse that thousands of black children suffered at the Alabama Industrial School for Negro Children and how those five girls changed everything. Listen to unreformed on the I Heart Radio app, Apple Podcasts, or wherever you get your podcasts. Oi! It's Boston Robert, opening up another episode of the Andrew Titeboard Kissed. Wow, that was incredible. I think I'm going to try my American accent now. I hope that's not offensive to anybody. I'm Robert Evans. This is the first and only Boston-based podcast. Oh, that was so bad. It's more like behind the masters. I'm like crying. Like Massachusetts. And somehow keeps getting worse. Yeah. I thought that was pretty good. I thought that was pretty good. I would be more offended if I actually liked Boston, which I don't. So, oh my god, it's so bad that I started to beat my whole faces right and I've teared up. No, you see, a lot of the times we ignore the Reddit when we disagree with it. But today, the subreddit's filled with Bostonians saying my accent is perfect. So, I have decided to take that as a mandate to continue speaking in a Boston accent. Well, everybody, this is behind the bastards. It's a podcast. Bad people. Tell you all about it. Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. I have a Jamie Loftus text that says, butch Jack Tommy. They're on their way. They're Deadpool DVDs at you. Like throwing stars if you do not stop the Boston accent. Well, you know, Jamie is not really from Boston because she's from, she's from, she's from Hualvod. And we don't. She's not brought in. Bracked in. Yeah, we don't consider that baston where I'm from. Which is, I don't know the parts of Boston. Look, this joke was always going to run into the limitation of me not knowing anything about Boston. Yeah. The Liberty Bell. I'm from the Liberty Bell. So, yeah, that's as Boston as it gets. Oh my God. They're really shitty basketball team. I've heard that about Boston from Bostonians. Yeah. Anyway, this is, this is behind the bastards. We are, we are heading into, viewing into part three of our, our epic podcast on Andrew Tate that I, I and all of you were cruelly forced to make because he suddenly, very suddenly became extremely relevant. And all of, all of this, all of our accents, all of our crosstalk is an attempt to distract ourselves from the fact that we unfortunately have to learn a lot more about Andrew Tate. And, and Sophie, and I know I'm about to force a terrible, terrible quantity of Andrew Tate videos. Oh yeah, Ian Tere, hi Ian Johnson, our editor. Hey Ian. Sweet Prince. Kickboxing champion of the world. I'm just mentally preparing myself for a bunch of horrific Andrew Tate TikTok videos. So, let's do it. Not to mention one half of the DJ group Gladiator with our very own DJ, Daniel. We have the full Gladiator on staff, which is my favorite thing to brag about. Yeah, all of these things, all of these things are true. And what's all these things? Are true. And what's also true is that I have watched hours of Andrew Tate, the people who live with me have been miserable because while I'm cleaning the house, I've just been putting on his eight hour long videos where he tells people how to, how to hustle. Mike and Dolan says, yeah, I have broken my brain and now it's time for everyone else to suffer, which could be the tagline of this show, honestly. So, yeah, let's, let's, let's roll into it. What? Don't do that to people. Where are headphones? So be all of our money comes from doing your two- Where headphones? I am wearing headphones now. No, when you're listening to eight hours of Andrew Tate. No, see, I mean, the whole reason this podcast works and the whole reason that I enjoy doing it is getting to make other people miserable after making myself miserable. So, if I were just hiding all of the Andrew Tate and experiencing it solo, I wouldn't as joy it as much as like, when one of my friends comes home from a long day of like teaching children at a public school and sees Andrew Tate talking about child labor on the screen of my TV and that's just the thing that assaults them as they attempt to de-stress from their day. I think that's beautiful, Sophie. I guess I know who I owe apologies to on your behalf. Oh, everyone. Everyone, Sophie. So, let's get back into it. When we left off, Andrew interest intates webcam sex business, which was essentially just sex trafficking, had taken off. They had started making a lot of money and they had been forced to flee the United Kingdom after committing a series of sex crimes. So, they are in Romania now. Andrew Tate will, and he's pretty open about this, because after this point, he starts to get a lot more active on social media, particularly Instagram. And when he's doing these kind of like videos with his fans where he talks about how he got rich and how to get rich, he'll talk about why he moved to Romania. And his explanation is, there's sex crime laws are a lot looser there. It's a lot harder to get prosecuted because the government is more corrupt. And while I'm not a rapist, I wanted to go to a place with more freedom to commit sex crimes, which is something a rapist would say. And it's in fact something a rapist did say. So, it was never particularly good at hiding it. And spoilers, it may prove to be a bad idea to taunt the government of the country that you've moved to by calling them corrupt and saying they don't prosecute sex crimes. Because Romania does actually have serious problems with sex trafficking, but it turns out a great way to get a government to get a problem seriously is to taunt them and say that they don't care about that problem when you become incredibly famous for committing crimes. Uh, yeah. It's gonna be good. Not to be advised. But that's a few years in the future because for quite a while, this happens, he moves around 2015 or so. And for years, he's very successful there. And he's Instagramming as he starts to buy these super cars as he starts hitting the wealth level that he can fly in private jets. He's putting all of these videos out. He's engaging in stunts designed to draw attention like promising to pay fans $10,000 if they show him a good night out partying. Oh, no. The catch was that. So, as just to be clear, all this money is from the website that him and his brother are running, right? That's where it starts coming in from. As we'll get into, to be honest, I'm not going to be able to give anyone a cohesive answer is to actually where all his money comes from because he is a criminal. But we know a lot is coming in from the can business at this point. Enough that he's like, yeah, promising to pay people $10,000 if they show him a good night out partying. And the catch is he's gonna like Instagram beating them up if they don't show him a good time. One fan took him up on this and the video's been scrubbed from the internet. But the end of it, Tates like I had a bad time. Now you have to fight me. And this dude clearly doesn't want to fight him. And is at one point like, here, I have to take my watch off. And so, like Andrew looks away. And then he just bolts and runs. It's like a beat from a fucking Judd Apatow Boopy. That's amazing. And it works incredibly well on Andrew Tate because he is, we're about to get into some of the smarter stuff he did. But he's not nearly as smart as he thinks he is. So, that's fun. 2014, I think, it's the year that the Tate Brothers actually became millionaires. I found a compilation of Instagram footage from that time and a YouTube channel called The Tate Pill. Oh, I know. That's incredible. Oh, yeah. That's amazing. Let me breathe in your sorrow, Sophie. That fuels me. No, no, no, no, no, no. I missed the Boston accent. I did. Yeah, see? That was the plan all along. Get you to miss the Boston. This Instagram footage of his first years in millionaires, all shots of him driving expensive supercars of the Brothers' Party, of piles of cash inside of vehicles, and there's a lot of videos of piles of cash, of women cleaning for him. He's also really obsessed with showing servants cleaning up for him while he does his videos. But Tate's overall image, the way he presents himself, is quite different at this point. In one shot, we see him with a bunch of young women outside of a hotel or something. He's got a full head of hair, and he's wearing like a pink polo shirt and shorts. He looks like a frat brother, which is not the look that he goes for. He's kind of going for more of like a sex criminal James Bond, which also you might just call regular James Bond, if he went shirtless more often, and his kind of modern shit. But he's definitely just kind of, he's kind of basic still at this point. Yeah, which I found kind of interesting. And another shot from this compilation of photos and footage, which I, again, I took from a channel called The Tate Pill. We see a young woman with Tate's girl written across her chest in Sharpie. Later on, there's a woman with Tate's written on her as like a tattoo. This is a thing that you should keep in mind because it's going to be relevant later. And Sophie, I put a picture in there of the lady with Tate's girl written right in between your text. I was hoping it would have showed to Ian, but he... No, no, no, no, let him see. Let him, let him take this in. All right, I'm ready. Yeah, yeah, you got that Ian. You feeling good? Ian, I was hoping he wouldn't make me show this to you. Oh, okay. Yeah. Yeah, no, that feels bad. But okay, let's keep going. Yeah, it's good stuff. You don't say. Oh no. Yeah. This whole thing is just giving me like, damn Blasarian vibes. I feel like he like saw a bunch of damn Blasarian videos on the internet and was like, I want that. And then he just started doing it. Are you familiar with damn Blasarian? Oh, yes, yes. Damn Blasarian who was like this big right wing muscle gun influencer until he was present at that mass shooting in Vegas and ran away rather than rendering aid to any of the injured people. Yeah, that guy. Damn Blasarian. Great guy. Yeah, I mean, I think the difference is that Tate would never have had a problem with running away from a mass shooting because a big part of his brand is you should only look out for yourself and fuck everybody else. So he would not have had trouble handling that situation. Now, that video compilation of Tate and his brother when they first become millionaires is like thousands of video compilations of the Tate's that literally internet. And watching those compilations because he's been de-platformed so much is basically the only way to consume a lot of Tate's content. And if you want to consume a lot of Tate content for some reason. He's been de-platformed for most places. We actually just lost a video where you're going to play in here. So the easiest way to find old episodes of Tate's speech, your various interviews is compilation videos like the one I found of pictures of him when he was first got his millions. That's something to keep in mind because it's going to be more relevant later. It's evidence of the kind of strategy that he actually used to get as famous as he is. But first, we need to get into more of his backstory. So in 2016, Mr. Tate became a contestant on Big Brother, the UK reality show. Well, I guess the UK version of Big Brother, right? I think there's a bunch of versions of it. I don't know. I've never watched Big Brother. But he was on the UK version of it. And I don't understand the rules of the show. But he came in as an other housemate, which means he had to get voted to housemate status or some shit. He had to basically like socially engineer his way to being able to stay on the show. And so he made a big deal about being a strategizer and how he had this like elaborate strategic plan to get on the house. But before whatever plan that was came to fruition, footage leaked of him whipping a woman. Oh my God. Yeah. I mean, this is one of those ones that I'm a little like unsure of because I've seen the footage and like it's unpleasant. He claims that it is was a consensual, kinky sex act. And so does the woman that he was whipping. And just based on the video, that might be true of this specific video. Again, we know he's been physically abusive. There's a lot of evidence of that. We know that he's committed right. This specific video may actually have been a kink thing, which is why I'm not playing it because I just I don't think that kind of thing should be played. So instead, let's watch a little clip of Andrew Tate on Big Brother. I think that's going to give people a little bit better of a context of this guy and how he was presenting himself in 2016. So if you have just put the link into the chat. Yeah, we're going to this will be a good time for everybody. And much more pleasant than that video, regardless of what the truth is of the video. You take some 29 years old and I'm a four times kickboxing world champion. I see myself at smarter than average. I was a chess champion from a very young age from age of three. My biggest tool is that I'm not afraid of anything. I have don't need the money. I don't want to be faint. I don't want any of that. So I'm going to be the most emotionally controlled person in the house. His big brother, time is up. Andrew, confirm the character trait. You have all chosen and targeted and explain your reasons. We chose insects because we're assuming the person who describes themselves as sexies and idiot. No, no, no. No. No, no. Because people are getting a lot of sex here. They're closed with... You can tell if someone sex you have a tonight. We're chosen because it be an easy choice. So that's Andrew Tate. He's not so farble. Yeah, I mean, you see what he's kind of going for there is like, I'm the most emotionally controlled. You can't like affect me. Yeah, he's doing kind of a version of the thing he's going to be doing. But obviously he gets kicked off the show very quickly. I think he's on it for literally like a week. Now, the claim is that he's kicked off the show because this video of him whipping this woman gets leaked out, right? And that's why they kick him off. There's debate about this within the big brother fandom. I went through the big brother fandom, Wiki, because I wanted to see. How are the... How are the bro stands responding to Andrew Tate? How do they feel about him? And they note this, quote, Andrew himself in many other fans, believe that is an incorrect reason as to why he was ejected. Andrew believes he was removed as a result after unaired altercations with other housemates. Got very heated and due to Andrew's fighting background, Big Brother feared violent repercussions due to this and ejected him from the house. And it's interesting that he would admit that because he's basically saying they thought I was too violent and dangerous and didn't want me to hurt somebody and get the show at trouble so they kicked me off. Which I actually think might be possible. I am not going to be able to see Andrew's face. I'm not going to be possible. I am going to say Andrew may not be incorrect there. Because if I'm Big Brother and I see the way this guy interacts with people and his background, I might be like, we may want to get this motherfucker off the show. He seems like a violent psychopath. Yeah. I guess. I don't know. Yeah. It's also very likely that they just saw that sketchy video and we're like, we don't need this. We don't need this. Big Brother doesn't need this PR. Yeah. Before he went on the show, was he already kind of starting to become famous a little bit or was this kind of like a jumping off point for bigger fame? I certainly wouldn't call him famous. He was a semi-prominent within the UK. A semi-prominent fighting sport star. He done a little bit of MMA too. And he was a semi-prominent. He had like, I think in the tens of thousands, maybe even like a couple of hundred thousand followers on Instagram. So he's not a nobody, but he's not a celebrity. He's the level of celebrity that you pick to be on a Big Brother show. Right. Yeah. Now, as with so many claims about this guy, obviously, I'm not going to say that the Big Brother Wiki, fandom Wiki is a great source, but I did read through it and I think it's worth reading to you the biography that the Big Brother fandom Wiki gives for Tate because I believe it's accurate to the kind of stuff that Tate bragged about in his Big Brother appearance. I read it. Here's his biography. Andrew is a member of Mensa. See, that's the same red flag as the Iowa writers workshop, which I was fucking right about. Thank you, everybody, who mentioned the message. Yeah, people did. That is a bread mother fucking flag. Folks who are not on the social media should note that people pointed out the Iowa writers workshop was apparently started by the CIA, which is very funny in terms of Sophie being right about it being shady. Although I will say Robert Blyh does not seem to have taken to the CIA's propaganda line. That you know about. I guess we'll say whatever feel about that however you want. There's a number of Mensa. That is more of a red flag than the CIA writing program. I'm just going to say that right now. Oh, God. Text Jamie about this. Does Jamie know that Andrew Tate was in Mensa? I will text her right now. I'm going to continue Andrew's bio from the Big Brother Wiki. Andrew is a four-time world kickboxing champion. His brother who Andrew claims is his only true friend trades him. What a sad sentence. Andrew believes that a man should be able to sleep with as many women as he wants, but that does not apply to women. So that's basically what you'd expect from Mr. Tate, right? Yeah, it sounds like a perfect encapsulation. Yeah. Andrew Tate. What an incredible guy. So the year after his Big Brother failure, Donald Trump, you guys might have heard of this, becomes president of the United States. Yeah. And suddenly, you got fascists in the streets. You got the alt-right suddenly being a term and everybody is lexicon. And you've got this galaxy of right wing and explicitly fascist media influencers just blowing the fuck up on social media. Andrew and Tristan saw this happening and they were like, this is how we get huge, right? This is a perfect place for us to just kind of nest like one of those wasps that lays their eggs in your eyes. And then burst out. So they decide to be the wasps in, let's say Alex Jones's eye. They start to experiment. Social media posts, bragging about their luxurious lifestyle had helped. But that kind of stuff is a dime a dozen. Now, Andrew is unfortunately not a dumb man. And so he observed the success of guys like Mike Cernovich, Alex Jones, Paul Joseph Watson. And he recognized that they were all using variations of the same tactic. They would post something deliberately in flammatory on social media or on their own shows that have some sort of guests like David Ike talk about lizard people or they would go on this rant or they just do something super racist. And that would generate outrage. And all of these liberal and centrist and left wing journalists would cover the horrifying thing that they'd said on social media, which would elevate their profile and give them free advertising. What platforms are they using at this time? He is using primarily Instagram and he's going to get increasingly big on TikTok. He's one of these, the right wing influencers who's probably best at TikTok. He also though he puts stuff on YouTube for until he gets banned from YouTube. He has like a long kind of video blog podcast. And that's kind of where he's starting. It's very interesting. The similarities to like Steve Bannon using that video game and just messing with the stuff. I was literally just thinking about that. Yeah. And he's, this is very conscious, right? Like he's, he's, and this is, this is where Andrew Tate is smart, right? Because intelligence is, is not a broad concept. It's a narrow thing. And he's very intelligent when it comes to how to build a right wing brand online. He watches what everyone is doing and he takes the stuff that works best. And he's going to become very good at this. But you know who's even better at this? The, the, the, the products and services that sponsor this podcast. They, they have you should see their right wing Instagram page. It is offensive. What? You say that, but most of our ads are programmatic and we have no idea what they are. So that could possibly be very accurate. I'm excited, I'm excited for the gold company to come back. Everybody. Yeah. Buy some motherfucking gold. Hola, hola. It's your girl, cheekies. And I'm back with brand new episodes of my podcasts, cheekies and chill and dear cheekies. Last season, I shared so many intimate stories with you guys and had conversations with some of my favorite people. This season, we're picking up right where we left off. We'll talk about everything from spirituality, relationships, women's health, and so much more. And guess what? The cheekies is also back. I'll be answering even more of your questions. And honestly guys, I cannot wait. As you can not the pierdas, new momentum, the cheekies and chill and dear cheekies as part of the mycultura podcast network available on the iHeartRadio app, Apple Podcasts or wherever you get your podcasts. This is the Pikes and Massacre, returned to Pike County. New details into what was uncovered at the gruesome crime scenes in Pike County. Accused murder, George Wagner faces a judge and jury. There's a lot of stake here for Pulse Island. On the one side of the prosecution is overseeing the most expensive, most complex trial in the history of Ohio. And on the other hand, the defense is trying to save a guy's life. His mother and youngest brother are set to testify against him. They're going to have to put the finger on him because it takes plea deal. An angel at two is contingent upon them testifying truthfully. Will he face the death penalty or will he walk free? No Wagner family DNA was found in a crime scene. More more words. This case is about to blow wide open. Listen to the Pikes and Massacre season four. Trials begin on the iHeartRadio app, Apple Podcasts or wherever you get your podcasts. In 1980, cocaine was captivating and corrupting Miami. Miami had become the murder capital of the United States. I were making millions of dollars. I like categorize it as a wall, wall, wall, wall. Unleashing a wave of violence. My God, I took that walk into the devil's stand. The car tails, they just peeled everybody. It was hell. They start pulling out pictures of clay, Williams body taken out in the Everglades. A world orbiting around a mysterious man with a controversial claim. This drug pilot by name of Lamar Chester, he never ran anything but grass until I turned over that load of coke to him on the island. Chester could claim he did it all for this CIA. Pulling many into a sprawling federal investigation. So clay wasn't the only person who was murdered? I don't know, not by a long shot. I'm Lauren Brad Piceco, join me for murder in Miami. Listen to murder in Miami. I heart radio out, Apple podcasts or wherever you get your podcasts. We are back. Sophie's letting us know that Jamie Loftus, who did a podcast on Mensa, just got the news that Andrew Tate is a men's site. Sophie tracks. How did she respond? All caps, LOL. No way. Beautiful, beautiful, perfect reply. Happy to have, have supplied her with this information. Yeah, so Andrew starts upping his, his appearances on social media. He starts integrating himself into this right wing ecosystem, throwing out offensive shit and just kind of using that to build this profile to get him invites to be on other people's shows. And I'm going to quote from the guardian here to talk about his rise to prominence. In September of 2017, he was criticized by mental health charities for saying depression isn't real. The next month, he waited in on me too, saying women should bear some responsibility for being raped. A view he has since repeated and which, among other incidents, led to him being barred from Twitter. The backlash one Tate work and boosted his profile. He appeared on Info Wars, the podcast of conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, was pictured with far right YouTuber Paul Joseph Watson, and met Donald Trump Jr. at Trump Tower, posting on Facebook afterwards. The Tate family support Trump fully, MAGA. Cool. In 2009. The night death from hell, you got Alex. He's, he's, he's done it on junior. He's checking all the asshole boxes. Yeah, he's, he's, he's tick-tick-toed his way through the very worst people in our society. In 2019, police were called after Tate showed up at the house of Mike Stuckberry. A journalist who had been critical about him online. Days after Yaksley Linden, that's Tommy Robinson, who he didn't episode on, did the same thing. The incident caused Stuckberry's wife to suffer a panic attack and played a role in them leaving the UK for Germany. So both that's gross physical intermordation of a guy who's criticized him, but also he's just doing the same thing, Tommy Robinson dead. So you can see at this point, he's not a figure in his own right yet. When you are copying Tommy fucking Robinson. You have not yet ascended, right? That is one of the satire right-wing grifters to be following in the footsteps of. So he's working on it, but he hasn't yet blown his way kind of out of the pack. All of this controversy, all of these appearances on right-wing talk shows and podcasts, did successfully elevate Tate's profile. And he started funneling his new fans towards his new business, one with a wider appeal than webcam prostitution. He began offering a series of classes to his followers. Initially, this was sleazy pickup artist, shit, classes on how to get women. The market for that is very crowded, though. Here's how Tate attempted to set himself apart from the pickup artist community, from the promotional material I found for his now-to-funct PhD program. Some fuck up. What? Yeah, yeah. It stands for something gross. I forgot. But I'm going to read you the ad copy that he wrote for this fucking thing. Andrew Tate is world champion kickboxer who owns and operates strip clubs and webcam studios. With over 75 girls working for him, he has created a system that allows you to get girls quickly, easily, and without spending money. Unlike other pickup artists who have the odd girl here and there, Tate has top quality, that's in caps. Women living with him and making him money full-time. This makes him more qualified than any other coach on the internet. Do you want to learn how to get the odd girl from a pickup artist or learn how to build an army of women who are so loyal to you that they allow you to have as many girls as you want? More importantly, he has a foolproof system for retaining women, having them do as you say, and respecting you without taking up or wasting large amounts of your time. As Tate said, I don't want to tin unless she does everything I say. It's obedience and loyalty that turns me on more than looks. Whether you're looking to get girls, simply have your girlfriend obey every command and be fiercely loyal or learn how to live with three or four girlfriends at once as Tate does. This is the course for you. So do we go, guys? So do we think Hitch was his favorite movie? So I don't think you're allowed to make references to Hitch. Nobody's seen Hitch. You and have you seen Hitch with Will Smith? The allergic reaction. Oh, that was, you know, bringing back. Yeah. Yeah. That entire thing was disgusting, Robert. Thank you for sharing. Oh, yeah, it was you. When I found that, I just, that was, I did a little chef's kiss, like I was, like I was cooking up some spaghetti. It was good. It was good. Now, a big part of Tate's branding, and this is the same thing. When you're an influencer, right, if you're trying to build like a, a cultishly loyal following, you have to use cult techniques. And that means creating words that were not in use before you started using them, and or at least repurposing words in ways that other people don't use them and getting your fans to talk that way. And one of the things, you know, Tate, Tate, note, knew this and Tate also, he had paid attention to guys, you know, again, think back to our other cult leaders. We've got guys like Keith Reineri, who was called Vanguard. We've got Elrond Hubbard, who was the Commodore. I forget what Reineri Irhard went by, but, but we just did his episodes. And for Tate, the kind of name that he had his fans call him is Top G. And you will see this in a shitload of Zoomer TikTok videos. I want to play first a video for you of him talking to his brother about what Top G means. And this is from the Tate pill YouTube channel, which all is the only YouTube channel that I visit. Yeah, Top G and Tate pill, all those names make me want to cry. It's good stuff, Sylvie. Here's the clip. Oh, gee, everyone says Top G, kids are now wearing T-shirts for Top G on it. I want to be a Top G. I want to be the Top G. You basically trademarked it. So what do you mean by Top G? Top G is an individual who is capable in all realms, as my father said. Sheer Indifitability, an unmatched perspicacity, made him a feared opponent in all realms of humanity. When you are Top G, you are dangerous at everything. That's why I'm Top G. If they were to say to you, you have to go on a racetrack and race Tate in C-class. You have to go in the boxing ring and fight Tate. You have to go to big Tate in C-class. You have to go try and get a girl in Tate's also trying to get a girl in C-class. Sheer doesn't matter what the competition is. As soon as they say my name, they're going to be like, oh, fuck. My unmatched perspicacity, my ability to perceive, my sheer indifitability, the fact that I never get tired. You add all this together. I am a feared opponent in me realm of human endeavor. Even things I don't yet know how to do. You do not want to compete with me in those things. That is why I am... So, first off, it feels like he wasn't as good at Chesa C. because his dad had to kick him out of a contest for crying too much. Just do keep that in mind as he makes these claims. Now, I don't believe that Andrew Tate is a competition race car driver because he has never done that. And also, by the way, again, because he makes claims like this, I went to race car Twitter to see what they said about him. Yeah, what's the vibe? What's the vibe? He sucks, right? He sucks. They had a lot of weird... There were a lot of... You run into people making these weird niche criticisms about his supercars and how they're not the right kind of supercars to buy. What makes it a fucking supercar? I do... It's a word... It's an expensive car that goes fast. Okay. And if you're a supercar nerd and disagree, you can go to hell because I enjoyed reading and found it like enlightening, reading the chess and the kickboxing subreddits. The supercar people are insufferable. Even the ones that don't like Andrew Tate. So I do love that that's Robert's line. Yeah, that's where he draws the line. It's like the supercars just really were too much. Because they were like, well, no, you want this supercar, not that one. I would never... And I was like, you don't... None of you own supercars. I'm sorry. I don't... You, you people, I don't believe. Oh, God. I can just imagine these supercars fuckers like Tinder profiles. They're so horrible. Their car is there. You know the car is in the picture. Yeah, I am, I am. I, I simply don't care what you have to say about his supercars. But what I do care about is the fact that as silly as that all is, the top G shit worked. And as evidence for this, I, I have just sent another link to the chat. This is a protest in Athens, Greece, where what appears to be visually several thousand adult men and a number of men who are boys marching through the streets of Athens. And I want, Sophie, I want you to just play what they're chanting. Oh, yeah. This was after, this was right after his arrest. Yeah, I know what this is. I'm sad. We got deep, we got deep, we got deep, we got deep, we got deep, we got deep. And that is my... It's not a, I'll say this, that's not like a tiny flash mob. There's a lot of people. There's a lot of people. There is a, there is a distressing number of men in the street. There's a distressing number of men in the streets. That's in Greece. Just, just, just, just, it is not great. So this works very well. Tate was very successful. And again, we've already covered the degree to which he's exaggerating and outright, lying about his competence, but he's successful at pushing a persona of himself as hyper competent and irresistible to women. As we've already covered, a lot of what he says is objectively untrue. His kickboxing record was cooked, his businesses are mostly cheap scams or outright criminal lender prices. We'll get into that more in a second. But it's worth digging into first the reality behind the Indru Tate method of picking up women. In the wake of Tate's arrest, a brave 19-year-old Romanian woman named Daria Gusha, reached out to Buzzfeed. She told them and provided evidence that in 2020, when she was 16, Andru Tate slid into her deems on Instagram with a message that read, Romanian girl strawberry emoji, which I think is a sex thing, the strawberry emoji. I don't know. I, I, I don't know what you kids use. There's a strawberry emoji. All right, carry on. On the gram, yes, Sophie. Jeez. Get with the kids. Get with the times. When Tate messaged her, her Instagram bio had the name of her fancy private school. And she told Buzzfeed that a number of other girls in her class had been messaged by Tate around the same time in the same way. So it seems like he was looking for basically just like filtering his responses from girls in this private school who were like 16 and then messaging a bunch of them at once. Daria did not respond, but her friends, some of her friends did, and Tate complimented them telling them how beautiful they were. He bragged about his wealth and he offered to take them to expensive restaurants. After a short back and forth, he would every time try to meet up with the girls, be like, hey, we should meet up right now. Where are you? I'll come pick you up. We can go out and eat. And I'm going to quote from Buzzfeed next. None of her friends went ahead with meeting with him, she said. And once Tate realized they weren't going to, he started to insult them. The second that girl stopped replying to him, he starts getting a bit verbally abusive, calling them ugly and stuff like that. Just to get the reaction out of them and keep engaging with them, Gusa said. And that's, I think, useful to go over because that's normal shitty guy on the internet stuff. That is, there's a billion guys doing that. There's nothing special about him. He doesn't have some sort of secret. He's not irresistible. He's just doing the same thing that like, there's like, there's a whole bunch of Twitter accounts that like semi-professionally post like screen grabs of guys sliding into women's DMs, all around the world doing that exact thing. Like there's nothing about his method that is special or rare. He just practices it exclusively on children. And you know, what he's doing is he's, I'm sure shot gunning out these requests to so many people that statistically just like with like a, you know, a nightier... Exactly. It's like one of those like email scams, right? Some number of people are going to like respond. It'll work on some number of people and that's all he cares about, right? Yeah. And I do think that's important because when it comes to actual pickup artistry or whatever you want to call it, Andrew Tate is no different than every other frustrated adult male piece of shit looking to flirt with little kids. Yeah, you're not special mother fucker. Just like every other creep. Yeah, exactly. He is just like every other creep behind the curtain. Now, none of this though is public during the rise of Andrew Tate's social media profile or his main online business, which would become Hustler's University. That's what he calls this like series of classes and training programs that he starts to launch. And it's the kind of thing like he is undeniably good at getting people. And it's mostly the people who mostly believe this image he's crafted are children, right? They are also children. They're male children. All of his victims, the women that he, the girls that he's flirting with are mostly children or extremely young adults. And the people without foreign brains, who can't do critical thinking or make like a big decision. Yeah, exactly. And the people he's trying to get money from are like boys from like, I'm going to say age 12 to 20. And yeah, that's who this shit works on. Now, I found an eight hour class from Hustler's University up on YouTube, which is just part one of his, his class that he was offering. I have a new watcher here on the house. I sure did. I sure did. There are, you can find a lot of these have been uploaded since his arrest. And there's like a hundred of them. Were you like doing like so many hours of this shit? Were you doing house chores and then passing this? I'm sweeping, I'm cleaning, you know, I'm standing, standing naked, doing planks on my, in my living room floor, normal stuff. Not your living room floor. Oh, yeah, that's the only place I do it. So, yeah, I felt like I had to watch through these because Tate claims at the start that these do contain his entire understanding of business and how to make money. I figured watching it would give me some insight into the soul of the man himself. And boy, howdy, did it ever. Oh, God. So we're going to go into that in a little bit. But first, you know what we're going to go into. Oh, oh, oh, is it an ad break? Is it an ad break? It sure is an ad break. It's some products, some services, the ad product and service. We're going to go into that. I'm going to do my hustle before we introduce you all to hustlers university. Oh, Robert, that was despicable. Yeah, well, welcome to the potty pal. Hola, hola. It's your girl, cheekies. And I'm back with brand new episodes of my podcasts, cheekies and chill and dear cheekies. Last season, I shared so many intimate stories with you guys and had conversations with some of my favorite people. This season, we're picking up right where we left off. We'll talk about everything from spirituality, relationships, women's health, and so much more. And guess what? Dear cheekies is also back. Seguiré contestando todo a tus preguntas. I'll be answering even more of your questions. And honestly, guys, I cannot wait. Así que no te pierdas, en un momento, de chiquis and chill and dear cheekies, as part of the My Cultura Podcast Network, available on the iHeartRadio app, Apple Podcasts, or wherever you get your podcasts. This is the Pikes and Massacre Return to Pike County. New details into what was uncovered at the gruesome crime scenes in Pike County. Accused murder, George Wagner faces a judge and jury. There's a lot of stake here for Pulse Eyes. On the one side of the prosecution is overseeing the most expensive, most complex trial in the history of Ohio. And on the other hand, the defense is trying to save a guy's life. His mother and youngest brother are set to testify against him. They're going to have to put the finger on him, because Jake's plea deal, in Angela 2, is contingent upon them testifying truthfully. Will he face the death penalty or will he walk free? No Wagner family DNA was found in a crime scene. More more words. This case is about to blow wide open. Listen to the Pikes and Massacre season 4, trials begin on the iHeartRadio app, Apple Podcasts, or wherever you get your podcasts. In 1980, cocaine was captivating and corrupting Miami. Miami had become the murder capital of the United States. I were making millions of dollars. I would categorize it as a wall, wall, wall, wall. Unleashing a wave of violence. My God, I took that walking into the devil's den. The carcels, they just peeled everybody. It was hell. They start pulling out pictures of clay, Williams' body, taken out in the Everglades. A world orbiting around a mysterious man with a controversial claim. This drug pilot by name of Lamora Chester, he never ran anything but grass until I turned over that load of coke to him on the island. Chester would claim he did it all for this CIA. Pulling many into a sprawling federal investigation. So, clay wasn't the only person who was murdered? I don't know, not by a long shot. I'm Lauren Bright-Piceco, join me for murder in Miami. Listen to murder in Miami on the iHeartRadio app, Apple Podcasts, or wherever you get your podcasts. We are back. Back, so. Back again. Hustler's University starts out pretty boring. He gives his definition of a business, which is a thing that money goes into. That's the only thing a business is. Thanks for explaining that, Andrew. I have no idea before. Thank you, Andrew. Well, it's interesting because since a business is only something money goes into, if you are putting money into startup costs, if you're putting money into R&D, if you're paying for things like PR, that is all the waste of time, right? Because that's spending money. A business only takes money in. Now, you may be saying, well, you have to spend money to make money. That's like a thing everybody knows about business. That's just the way that it works, right? Andrew says no. And in order to explain what a fool you are, he gives an example of a good business that he had an idea for. And this first example of a good business is starting a website to sell make-up online. Now, he says he's adamant that like, you don't need to have any make-up. You don't need to have a product. All you do is you make a website selling make-up. And then you wait for a bunch of people to buy the make-up. And then you figure out where to get make-up with the money that they've spent on make-up that you didn't have before, and then you send it to them. Sounds like that's genius brain level business stuff. Start a fraudulent make-up business. And then buy make-up once you start getting money. I don't think that that would work, in part because there's a lot of make-up that's a real company out there that people can buy for. There's a lot of other options. So you actually get make-up. I'm curious. So yeah, and I'm sure a lot of people have that question. How are you supposed to actually get cash flow started without investing, without having something to make people want to buy your make-up? And Tate has an answer for you. And that answer is child labor. So I'm going to play a clip from you. And as an aside, during this clip, when you hear him tell someone to wipe down his whiteboard, it's some random cam worker in his home. It's a young woman who lives with him that he has doing minor chores in the background. This is the thing that he does in all of his videos. Family and friends are actually the best staff you can possibly get. Now people say don't mix friends with business, don't mix family with business. Can you clean my board? Sit here and wipe it. Please. Don't mix friends with business. Don't mix friends with business, don't mix family with business. That's a lie. So the reason people say this is because people are dickheads and they can't get along with anyone. They can't get along with anybody long enough to make any money. But I guarantee you have family members right this second who can make you money. I guarantee you you have a 15-year-old niece, nephew, cousin, brother, whoever. Who knows more about computers than you do. I guarantee there's a 15-year-old out there with nothing better to do. Who knows more about Photoshop than you do right now. His stupid ass needs a job. So you can start a company right now. Yeah, so that's seems good, right? That's a solid business idea. Have young relatives and trick them into working for you. Absolutely genius. Andrew, you are the finest business mind of our generation. Now, he follows this up with his next incredible piece of corporate advice, which I think might be of interest to some prosecutors in Romania. And I'm going to have Sophie play that one next. Don't get legal before you get rich. This is super important. We're talking about hustling here. I'm telling you the hacks to becoming rich. Do not get legal before you are rich. You can fix your legal bullshit when you've already made money. It's the shame I've deleted my race to my beautiful makeup diagram. But it's very similar to what we were saying earlier. I know so many people registered for VAT. Registered with the tax man. Already haven't accounted and haven't made any money yet. I and most of my companies will make a million dollars before I'll even consider fucking around with the tax form, talking to an accountant or registering any fucking companies. All that shit is on the later base until you have proved the viability of your company. And you have money coming in. When you're rich and you have money in the bank, then worry about that stuff. Do not waste your time, energy, and money doing all that legal crap before you know anything about whether your business is going to work or not. He's telling people you're trying. That's a crime. It's kind of like a business advice. It's a time sink. If every time I had to start a company or an idea, I had to go register a company getting the account and do tax forms, do VAT forms. What a waste of time. I've started maybe 100 companies in my life. 20 of them made money. You tell me 80 times I would have had to fuck around. Don't do that. I know so many people who have a company legally but don't have a company in reality because it exists as a legal entity but it does not provide cash. A company provides cash. If you're a street drug dealer, you own a company. Much more than the guy with all the legal entities which ain't making money. Do not wear hustlers here. It's the hustlers university. Do not confuse this. Money in. What's the lessons I've been teaching you? Money in. Where's the money in? Pointing at the empty white. What are you saying? It's only God. There's nothing written on it. There's nothing. Oh my God. Oh. Yeah. So because people, this is an audio medium. He is like pointing and circling things on an empty whiteboard because he's forgotten that he had one of his cam workers erase everything on it. Obviously, this is terrible advice in part because if you start a business that doesn't make a profit and you did not do any of the legal things you needed to do, there's a good chance that at some point the taxman will come and say, hey, you didn't do all this shit you needed to do. And we know that, you know, now you owe us a shitload of money. And because your business failed, you owe even more because you broke a bunch of laws. That's one thing that is concerning about the advice that he's giving. Although anyone who's going to start companies using the Android Tate advice probably deserves to be in trouble with the IRS or whoever. So I'm not going to complain too much about it. But also, I kind of hope someone in Romania is aware of these videos because I suspect Android Tate did not dot the eyes across the T's necessary to make all of his shady businesses legal in that country. He was operating casinos and strip clubs in the country once he got rich, like actual ones, not just cam ones. So I kind of think there's a decent chance he will wind up getting extra charges as a result of not legally operating any of his businesses. Fun thing to brag about, Andrew. So the next point he makes in this video of really just irreplaceable financial advice is use what you've got. And this is where Andrew actually gives us some context on how he started his cam business and why. But first, we get a little bit more child labor advocacy. I just gave you the example of the 15 year old cousin who can make websites, now you're on a website company. Or your 15 year old cousin who can do, I don't know, fucking who knows what he can do. He can mow lawns every 15 year old can mow lawns. Now you have a lawn mowing business. Bang. Tell his stupid ass to go deliver some flyers. Drive him around your car, place him two pack, chill out in your car, text some bitches, drive it five miles an hour, let him drop off all the leaflets, and then let him mow all the lawns. You collect all the money and just pay him a percentage. Bang. You now own a lawn mowing company. Congratulations. Use what you got. I made a lot of money with webcam girls. If you're watching this, you don't know that webcam girls. You can go to, you see girls on there on webcam, getting naked, talking to dudes, taking money. That made me millions and millions of dollars. I came up with that idea by sticking to this principle. Use what you've got. So right now, if you're sitting there, what are you saying? Oh wait. You have a car on a lease. You have physical strength. I'll say you're a strong guy. When I was making my list, I was writing everything down. I was like, well, I've got six girlfriends. Six girlfriends. Okay. How can girls make me money? Strip club, but that takes money to set up. Remember, costs... Again. I do nothing on the way forward. I cannot get money in a strip club without a club. So I looked at all the costs for a strip club and realized it's too expensive before I could get money in. It's too big of a risk. Remember? It's too much risk. I could lose three, four, and a grand. Can't risk that. How can I get money in? How can I get money in for having hot girls without spending money out? So my first idea was strip club. But I looked at all the costs. I was like, okay, so why do men spend money on girls in strip club? Because the girls are beautiful. They get to look at the girls, see some titties. How can I do that without the club? Well, the internet. If I put them on the internet, it's cheap. This is literally how I thought. I stuck to my business principles. I was like, hey, it's cheap. Start looking up, down, discover the webcam websites. All right, so I've already got the girls. I've already got a laptop. I've already got the internet. Bang! The day I had the webcam idea, the same day I was making money. I didn't spend any money. But I was making new money. Because I refused to allow myself to spend. Now I started making new money in with the webcam. Because I knew I had the internet. I knew I had laptops. I knew I had girls. Use what you've got. Look around you. What people do you have? Does your old mother need a new job? Maybe she's at home and she's... Oh my God. Maybe she'll mail it. Does your old mother... Do you have cousins, nieces, nephews? Do you have a girlfriend who has nothing to do? Use what you have. The most upsetting thing about all of this is like, you can see how like this people can fall for this or like how people can be susceptible to this. Because obviously he's taking it to a sick, disgusting extreme. But like at the core of it, that does make sense on some level. If you have a bunch of old baseball cards or whatever, you can start selling them at school and make a little extra money. But like he's taking it to such an extreme level of exploitation and illegality that it's like insane. But I could see how someone who is maybe not as savvy or is really gullible could be influenced or fall for this kind of stuff. And that's what makes people like this so fucking dangerous. Yeah, and what's going on here, there's two things going on here, right? And this is always the case with him. It's the case with like the thing the brags the lies he makes about his background. It's true. He's pretty good at chess. It's true. His dad was very good at chess. It's true that he was a decent kickboxer. And then he kind of uses that core of truth and then wraps a bunch of lies around it in order to make this persona. It is true that a lot of people with small businesses use their families for free labor, right? There's like laws in the United States where kids normally there's a lot of restrictions on how they can work. Unless it's like a family owned business, right? If you like own a computer store, you can have your 16 year old work it and they're not subject to all of the restrictions that like 7-11 would be if they tried to hire a 16 year old, right? Like there's some differences there. I'm not saying by the way that that's good or bad. I'm just that's the way that it works. This is pretty normalized. What he is saying is like taking that idea and saying, no, no, no. What you should be doing is getting all of these people who are emotionally invested in you and love you and using them as free labor to make yourself rich, right? Exactly. And what he's doing there is he's taking the logic of a multi level marketing company. All of these like AVE-ON kind of bullshit companies where they or these different like essential oil companies that we've talked about for years on the show where like all rely on, hey, your friends need this make up, your friends need these supplements, your friends need this shitty low quality leggings. And you can make a lot of money getting them to sell and getting them in your up line and you know that that's one of the things that's ruined like the social internet. Facebook has become a place where like people you knew 15 years ago get in touch pretending to be your friend and then try to get you to like become a do-terra representative or some shit. He's using this logic because he knows that it works. But instead of the thing that is obviously shady and that people have kind of more defenses built up around which is like, hey, try to get your family to like buy into this business. What he's saying is like, no, no, get him to work for you, you know, offer them like a share of profits or something to which obviously, you know, and he goes into later to tell about how you can fuck them over on that. But he's taking this thing that has been a part of American grift culture for forever and he's twisting it in a way that is I think kind of it is it is new and this is part of like the thing that he does that's intelligent, but it's also just very transparently awful and evil. Yeah, very predatory towards extremely predatory and speaking of extremely predatory, I want to I want to dig into the business genius of Andrew Tate here because it is worth going into kind of the inevitable sort of conclusions you have to make based stuff of what he's saying. So the example that he's given that 15 year old kid has no reason to give you the money that he's making mowing lawns right because he's doing all of the work to advertise and actually mo you only get your percentage he doesn't mention earlier like one of your assets is being strong. And this is true of the cam girls too. His only actual advice boils down to various forms of robbery and this is particularly clear when he starts talking about the profit making potential of Uber which is already exploitative. Andrew Tate, I'm going to play this next clip to you. This is him talking about how to use Uber in your own business to make money via child labor. Rent a car. Find a way to rent a car with unlimited mileage per month. Tell him he's going to do 10 hours of Uber a day to train how to drive. Lie to his ass and say that you in the Uber app you can track and make sure he ain't breaking the speed limits so he drives safe. Put his ass on Uber pay for his gas and give him half the money and keep half for yourself. Bang done. Set him up get him ready. This is shit I didn't plan I'm just telling you things off the top of my head because this is how I think as a hustler I don't I don't need to sit and think I just know there's money and I find a way to get the money. That's how I am. So right now you've got cousins out there who aren't driving Uber you can convince them to drive Uber well then why don't they do it without you easy you can talk some shit. Make some shit up. Hey if you got a new book out no I'll set it all up for you because it's complicated and there's some tax on hand of the tax. Don't pay no tax just lie. Blah blah blah get him an Uber get him in cars bang bang bang. So he just assumes everyone around him is stupid and we're stupid and trusting he assumes that like hey your cousins probably trust you lie in order to rob them. So like make them work for you for basically nothing and steal the money they may he suggested making money off of women he's sex trafficking old mother was thrown around. And your normal children. Yeah those are his business out don't forget the makeup company that does not sell makeup. The finest capitalistic mind of a generation maybe she's born with it maybe it doesn't exist. It's not actually makeup. It's so funny that like people talk about how smart this guy is and like how he's changed. He's changed he changed might we'll get into like why people talk about him changing their lives and all this shit. But like at the end of the day what he's offering here is like hey Rob your friends and family it's the same MLM thing but he does he has and this is this is I think. Credit seems like a weird way to say it but it is needful to acknowledge this is an innovation the way in which he is he is telling people to rob their friends and family in order to try to get rich and it won't work for them. Most of them it this obviously I think this is what Tate does he has his brother work for him and his cousins work for him. If you are the right kind of psychopath you can make money this way it's just that even of the people who are interested in hustlers university. Most of them are not that kind of psychopath and so they're not going to be successful or they're just not a smart enough psychopath. Robert did you say how much people were paying for this class. So these were it it changed over time. At first it was like a per class thing eventually it's going to change to a monthly fee and and obviously actual sales figures you're never going to get. But Tate makes like in the millions of dollars. Of this. Yeah. Off of the version one and he iterates quickly by 2021 he ditched the like courses and picking up women and running can businesses to focus on this new venture like this thing that he does because this is. Like the early version of hustlers university this is the thing that works really well and so he decides being intelligent in a very specific way he decides he's going to spin this into the main business that he's going to do and he he opts to in 2021. Re-launch hustlers university as hustlers university 2.0 and we're going to get into that and it's like what a wonderful innovative title. It's so infuriating because it's like kind of brilliant like the timing of it because like 2020 2021 a lot of people are out of work or have more free time at their. Ready to hustle make make some extra cash on the side and he's just like praying on that it's also like time. It's time away specifically I want to just emphasize on that a lot of kids are home alone a lot of kids are are doing remote learning school. Have access to whether that be a computer or an iPad or some kind of digital device and our home alone without supervision and you know the the algorithms have brought them to and you take. And and he got him and he's he's got him and he's he's offering them the other than that's happening here to you know they're we we're talking around this they're at home. They're lonely because of the pandemic there they're lonely also the cost of living is skyrocketing right and people especially in the UK is less the case in the US but in the UK where's a lot of his fans. There's like a financial crisis hitting right like things have not been great for the last year to change over over in the United Kingdom which is why it's so easy to to buy things with British pounds right now sorry all it just is at the moment. And and so Tate is recognizing that like there's a lot of young kids who are starting to come into the economy and realizing how hard it is to just tread water and so they're desperate for anything that will give them a hope of getting out of the fucking con game that is life under capitalism and that's that's what fucking Tate is is taking advantage of is these kids who are looking for a hack to get out of of the trap. And yeah we're going to talk about what he does next and how well it fucking works and spoilers will have an appearance from Alex Jones in part for the final part of this glorious series but first Ian Sophie you all got stuff to plugs is. Ian what do you have to plug anything yeah Ian I would say just you know check out internet hate machine it's one of the other more like internet hate machine sorry that's not right.
