Packers QB Aaron Rodgers: 'I don't think there's any reason why I wouldn't be back'
"You know, Aaron Rodgers said what Aaron Rodgers said on Sunday after his NFC championship lost. 31 to 26. Second consecutive year that the Packers go home. Aaron Rodgers is basically said that you know, there's so much uncertainty and you know, people turn that into whether or not he thinks he's going to still be a green Bay Packer. Whether or not he's gonna move on. There were rumors about him looking to get a contract boosts knowing that he's gonna be M v p Then he spoke to Pat McAfee. And this is what Aaron Rodgers had to say. Don't feel like I said anything that I hadn't said before. It was just it was more a realization. I think that ultimately my future is not necessarily in my control. Now, obviously, after the season that I had and Don't think that there's any reason why wouldn't be back. But there's not many absolutes as you guys know in this business. So to make an absolute statement about something that is not an absolute just I didn't do it, You know, And I guess that's why I went kind of kind of nuts. Okay. At least he said it. That's why I went kind of nuts. All right, well, look, let's see what happens over the next several months. Whether or not he gets that pay increase. This is going to be a never ending story. For the Green Bay Packers. I don't think this will be a situation that moves into Brett Farve. I want to retire. I want to stay territory. But this is this is going to be interesting because Jordan love is still sitting there. You drafted him. You selected him. You probably didn't expect Alan Rogers toe to come out and do what he's done. And now you've got a choice. You got to say Hey, do We swallow a loss here with the selection of love. You can't go back in time and get Aaron Rodgers a weapon. You have to admit that you made a wrong decision. You jumped the gun and getting his successor. And then even after that, you can't get equal value for what you have for love already. And then eventually you have to still look for a quarterback. This is a long story. Not going to get solved in a week, not several months. Let's see what

Opinion: NFC Dominated by Old Guard
"A great quarterback matchup. In both e A F C and NFC championship game. It kind of goes in line with what we've seen so far this season. I think the NFC has been dominated by the old guard. I mean, old guard disrespectful, but Tom Brady's been around for y Seasons event. Drew Brees vet. Air Rogers fete. We're talking about guys who have been through it all. In the NFL guys who have seen it all done. It all competed at the absolute highest level. Each and every week each and every season for the last decade plus That's not what we had in the A F. C playoffs. Think back to the last round. The divisional round. The average age for the quarterback was 37 in the NFC. It was 24 the A. F. C. This is a really good blend A really good mix of then versus now. This is a really good mix between The old Guard who has the rings has the accolades and the new guard that's trying to acquire those things. How many Super Bowls will Patrick Mahomes go to? How many championships will Josh Allen? Get too in his career. We're trying to find out more homes have the chance to get to his second. Josh Allen has a chance to get to his first. I think it's a really interesting juxtaposition with where we are in both conferences because in the A F C It could send used to get younger and younger. If you look at The number one overall pick. It's in the A F. C. If you look at the number two overall pick, possibly getting Justin Fields, also in the A F. C. I mean, we're talking about Baker may feel impact trauma homes and Josh Alan and to Shawn Watson. Forever, Lord, possibly Justin Fields. I might even be forgetting somebody off the top of my head. But you understand the point. That's not what we have in the NFC, So I expected us to be at this point where it was gonna be that old guard. Versus the new guard. Think, regardless of whatever Super Bowl matchup we get. It's a fantastic story line. Think about it if it's the home's going up against Brady And you have the greatest quarterback of all time in his 10th and a guy who I think is as talented as any quarterback we've ever seen. And that's Patrick Holmes. If it's Josh Allen You've got a fan base, The starved for Super Bowl start for this kind of notoriety. They've got one of the young kids, one of the young guns and Josh Allen. He's played at an incredible level.
Reboot Your Brain and Boost Your Productivity
"Well. It's twenty twenty one but chances are that you are in the same boat as you were in twenty twenty still stuck at your house still waiting for the current pandemic to slow slowdown as it's devastating communities around the country at least now. There's a glimmer of hope as vaccine. Rollouts move forward. We've given advice in the show before about how to work sweat play and just exist at home during the lockdown without going insane but this episode will be more holistic. We're going to be sharing advice and tips about how to maintain your sanity stay productive and stay healthy while we all stick this out. Maybe you even have some new year's resolutions along these lines that we can help you realize later in the show. We're going to have some recommendations for specific gear. That can help you find peace of mind. But first let's talk about some practical lifestyle tweaks that can get you there. So alan you have this interesting title of service editor and here it wired that means that you edit oliver coverage that we tag as reader service which is usually like stories that you help people navigate their lives in the digital era. So you are our expert in this Topic so please tell us what are some of the ways that you found that you can pass along to help people focus. So you're in trouble. If i am your expert but that said one of the best tips. One of the first tips. That i give to anybody. When they're trying to get things done is to find the best time of day for you to be productive. Find your best working hours. So there are a lot of people who get up early by nature of their job and they're really not a morning person. They're more productive in the afternoon so they're just kind of muddling along and struggling in the morning. Don't force yourself to do that. Like give it a good try right to try and get up early and get stuff done. But like i work best in the middle of the night when the sun is down i am just power through work so in the morning i will just work on emails. And i'll drink a lotta coffee and just kinda struggle through until the sun starts to wane closer to the horizon and then suddenly get a burst of energy and i start getting things done. So if you're one of those kinds of people definitely try to find a way to make the time of day. That's best for you the time that you do the most work I would also tell people to set little rituals for yourself little things kind of get your brain in the head space that okay. Now is the time that i'm going to transition from doing something or something else to getting stuff done. I have a book that i am supposed to be writing. And it's going. It's not a surly going well but it's going and i like to brew a cup of tea before my writing sessions because there's there's something about the steam rising from the cop and it's all pretty and it's floating through the air and everything it just kind of chills me out and puts me in the head space of okay now. It's time to right now. It's time to be creative now. It's time to float like steam off of the water like it's time to get busy so those little rituals help out a lot alan before we go onto your next steps. Tell us what your book is about. The book is a productivity book about productivity. It's a book. Productivity advice for people for whom traditional productivity advise Doesn't always work so. Yeah the story. I like to tell is. There are a lot of people for whom. I used to work with a guy who would block off every tuesday as no meeting tuesdays. And if somebody including his boss or our boss's boss would try to schedule him for a meeting on tuesdays he'd reply and say no tuesday's is my no meeting day. I'm focusing on work. He could get away with that I don't think i could have gotten away with that. And i think there are a lot of people they would hear that tip and be like. I can't do that. My boss would have my head if i did that. If that's you then. Hopefully this book will help you. I'm not going to tell you how to get away with no meeting day of just going to tell you how to work around it so you can still get stuff done right right. That's a great point. A lot of the tips. We here make the assumption that you have ultimate control of your schedule when in reality and a lot of work places You don't have as much control over things you have to go with the flow and respond to your bosses needs. Okay so what are some of your other say breaks. What are some of the other tips. Alex breaks take breaks. It seems counterintuitive. Right because i i have given given. I gave a seminar about this at the times where i used to work and people were like. What do you mean taking breaks makes you more productive. And i'm gonna listen if you have ever struggled to work for hours. Upon hours upon hours straight you'll understand that at the start like when you really find your flow and you're really into it. You really productive but by the end of that work session. You're tired you're dragging your barely progressing if you had taken a break to recharge earlier before you feel like you would rather do anything but what you're doing now. You could come back recharged and ready to go back to that. Highpoint so by all means take breaks. It actually does help you be more productive in the long run and also i just tell people take naps like. I'm a huge advocate of the workday nap if i vanish on slack guys probably should assume i'm napping and and i mean but then the thing is i. I'll take an app. i'll just like does offer like an hour or something and then come back. And i'll power through and people be like alan. You're working really late. And that's exactly what i want you to think but really i just took a nap for two hours. I'm working late and that's also be my book by the way. So i wish i had the i wish i had that superpower and the ability to just fall asleep in the middle of the day. I just i can't do it. Yeah it's it's tough. it is so lauren. I know that. I know that you have a pretty good tip that relates to calendering and sleep hours. Why don't you tell us about it. Okay so i really hate to be this person and every so often you'll see a cacophony of voices on twitter who are actively fighting against this tip saying you don't need to wake up early to be productive but my my thing is i. I liked wake up early early in the morning has been a great time for me to take care of personal administrative stuff or talk to people. I need to talk to you in different time zones or try to get exercise out of the way or even maybe to journal little bit or just. Write down some stuff that i've been thinking about. That's not related to being technology journalist. i like that because then it's not hanging over my head. The rest of the day is i have to focus on other other work tasks i was going to say more onerous work tasks working for wired is not onerous caveat to data to point is that just may not work for some people so for example. If you have small kids you may have childcare responsibilities in the mornings that make this impossible but then my advice would be just to carve out that time night. Carve out an hour for yourself to do this Something that just gets you sort of out of the flow in such way that when you do have to be in the workflow you can focus more fully on

Hispanic Business at PepsiCo with Esperanza Teasdale
"Let's talk about the professional path and You are now the vp gm of the hispanic business unit for pepsico. What was your path to get there. Yeah i am studied engineering for college. So i was math and science person in high school and my physics teacher mr adrian nouvelle who actually was so important to my life that he came to my wedding by way and kind of steered me into the space helped me with College application letters recommendation. And so i studied engineering before. You're so i've been in a manufacturing environment for awhile. Bump steel toed shoes uniform union arment. And that's really where i started my career At the same time my company was so gracious that They paid for my mba. So i went to Uconn in stamford connecticut to take classes at night and really got more exposed to concepts of business management marketing research and just really loved it and so then when i asked for a new gig they said finance or sales and unlike okay sales and sales and all i need to go into marketing because marketing guides what we're doing in sales and i think they could do a better job and so i was lucky that my General manager at the time created a job and that was that was the beginning of my marketing career. So very classically trained at unilever and then pepsi around marketing from like you know the analysts all the way through up till now you know a vp gm. Which i'm really proud and excited about and And yeah i feel like i'm in a really great role. Right can make a big impact on the careers of our of our folks drive to mercy inclusion and drive the business results faster than general market because the population is growing so quick so and There's just so many things that are benefiting from being in this role that That i'm really grateful about. But that's kind of the the journey really. It was not linear at all Did not start off wanting to and marketing that side of my brain and that analytical process orientation i think does just a market yeah i think increasing edge to a home maybe ten years ago when you made the original switch i think today it's much more analytically rigorous than it has been in the past But yeah no. That's that's phenomenal. And i've had a few folks on the show. That have transitioned from engineer to sales marketing. And it's it's funny the way you went through that transition in how you described it because a few of them have described it similarly meaning they. They went from engineering the sales and then they realized my words not yours. How bad marketing screws it up. And they need to go help marketing. Try to figure that out because it it comes down to the sales folks at some level whether their marketing is getting it right or not so. It's an interesting learning curve and A pathway that. I've heard before. So what would what drove what drove the creation of the hispanic business unit. And how are you guys thinking about like measuring success. That's a that's a big scene seemingly to me as an outsider like it seems like a big big thing like a big shift in how you're organized. Yeah this was created. I believe in twenty eighteen by out. Carrie who at the time was still pepsi. Co when of are really incredible leaders kirk. Tanner who's our ceo and My current boss. Greg lyons our cmo and they just really realize that you know the hispanic Business is untapped potential and if we have a fixed mindset about it and we're not going to capture that growth and So what's the do different because in the past. Yeah we had a multicultural team. That definitely had A role but didn't necessarily have ownership and so the do different had to be to create an organization that was dedicated to this and have the right resources. And that's what they did and And it's been pretty successful. Ever since the the key measures to the other question you had really is around. Hey can we help grow faster with hispanic consumer than the general market. Can we help build equity with this fan of consumer and And those are some key metrics we look at and so far. We've we've been We've been pretty pretty successful doing that.

And maybe To Hall of Famers here with Alan in the homes, that whore that I mean, sir, I mean, I don't even want to say that. Certainly there's going to be one. But but that's that Z quite a thing to say this early in their careers, but also with what you've seen, at least from the homes and definitely this year with Alan, You know if Mahomes goes on and wins a second Super Bowl in two years for sure, Mahomes, I think we're already getting close to he's on questionably going to go, but it's been so few years drastic happens.

Should You Offer Your Nanny A Raise When You Have Another Child?
"Did you. You offer your nannies a raise. When a second kid came into the picture yes and no i see yes because at least Especially back then when our second kid came into the picture fairly soon after her nanny had started with us. I was pregnant with him when she came so she kinda knew she was signing for kids. We did yearly raises in those days. And when i say because at some point we hit kind of a little bit of a ceiling where we just started adding other things like increased bonuses and increase vacation time at cetera. I wouldn't say we added specifically because of the second kid but we did increase Compensation anyway and i will say that you know just like for a parent sometimes. It's helpful for a caregiver to have the toddler out of the house for part of it so they can focus on the other kid especially if they're going to be doing some housework duties as well so back then. When annabelle was three in cameron was one that was probably one of the hardest parts of her job. Say harder than it is now especially because for the most part all three go to school for a significant portion of the day. But i had alan in preschool at age three even if it was just for four or five hours that really broke up the de for time that she would just have with a newborn time in part. When that new warriner one-year-old even would be napping so just took the load off a little bit so sometimes it doesn't you know it's not an either or plus particularly in non cova times preschools had have benefits to something to consider. That might make things easier for your caregiver. If you're adding more than one can. Yeah i mean. I would say like in general with any. I mean you employ in your work worker at home as well. i mean. anytime someone's job responsibilities increase substantially than than raise would probably be appropriate in our case we had always wound up in a cycle. We are hiring new people. Like as i was pregnant with the next baby so it was like. Yeah i like you the they were signing on in negotiating with that in mind knowing the number of children that would be involved in the job and then currently we actually are any wanted to trim hours a little bit over the past year. And that's that's been fine. Because michael and i are both working at home right now. I'm not travelling anywhere. And so and we'll we'll see how that all pans out when when the pandemic is over people travel again but but for now it's it's been okay
Interview With Dr. Stephen Porges
"Welcome to dr podcast today. I am very excited. I am privileged to welcome to the program A gentleman who has eye doctor porges. Are you there. i'm here yeah. I want to gush about you for a second because i am a giant fan of your work and the observations that you brought to light. I thought it was time we took your material to the public. Which i know is going to be a little bit of a task because it's very physiological and very technical but this is the future. Are we off line. No we're on. We're on the rock. I know it sounds like i'm not talking. Okay then go ahead and gosh yes. Dr borjas develop. Something called the polly vega theory. And it is that may not be a term that is immediately apparent what it means everybody. But he basically has shown how a part of our central nervous system that has been ignored for longtime or at least marginalized. Maybe at the core of understanding. How i describe this. How are emotional. Landscapes work I i came to work. Dr portas through alan shore. I may humble disciple of his work and his his work informed. Everything i do and he is backed by the Will be on in a couple of episodes to talk to you about his work But he has been able to show you know how the emotional landscape is built how the self is built and how this is a a. We've missed the fact that this is a bodily based experience and that the auto onomic nervous system sort of breaks accelerator of our system has been marginalized in our understanding of this thing. We call motions and feelings. Is that a good way to sort of bring it start actually going if you don't mind me dancing in spring it I actually Realized i finally realized that you were trained as an internist. And what i would say is to start this. I would say that. What i do is really the interface between internal medicine and psychiatry. Yes so You should find yourself feeling very much at home. With the linkage of the on a nommik nervous system to behavioral mental health disorders will and it. Maybe that's why you ended up in addiction medicine too. Because that's a similar crossroad You know it's it's very much you know medical. There's a lot of medical stuff going on. It's there's neurobiology that's completely out of whack there's interpersonal there's dynamic issues psychiatric issues but ultimately it is about the body and the body's relation to the brain and that is something that i think has been when people talk for instance talk. I'm getting off topic completely right away here but whenever hear people talking about you know Computers or artificial intelligence. I think wait a minute. Humans have this all other thing that they're embedded in that informed so much of what they're experiencing maybe it's all of what they're experiencing but it also informs what they're thinking how they remember things and how they process information. It's why there's things like intuition and why we have insights those actually our bodies creating those those sorts of moments. I suspect well. We are biological. I mean that's what we are and whatever we do whether it's art or music or social interactions. It's really based on our biology. And this tends to be you know marginalized this importance and as you've already realized that we live in a world that is very i'll use the term cognitive centric or cle biased. It's being the same thing that this little part of the brain that deals with our awareness and our alertness in our consciousness is the major role of our brain and it's not really To help our body run and the way. Our body is functioning also feedback and provides porto's of accessibility to different mental competencies.

There was a nice community laid up until testing week that we talked about back in episode three. I think this year and the thing i loved about that was it was community oriented. They didn't have to ask permission. They didn't have to you. Know get canonical approval to do this. It was just a bunch of people who decided. Let's get together and get some testing of four before it's released organized it for all of the flavors and it really helps a lot more. People were had more eyeballs on on twenty four

"Of things and In addition to youtube. I think i mentioned earlier. In the year. We got a disney plus subscription. Yeah yes. I have been watching a lot of science fiction and the way i end my day. Now as i get my tablet and i stay in bed and either watch film a couple of episodes of something and so far. I've worked my way through the entire marvel film catalog and the first season if the mandalorian and all of star trek discovery i've re watched altered carbon both seasons. I'm really worth what you again. Oh i love dealt carbon. I thought he was great. Board of now zone down. The first season in particular was really good. But i i really. I really like po. And he makes it for me. And then i'm i'm most of the way through agents of shield Yes we've just been watching that then you could always radio. I was very not like i expected it to be a toll. I thought it would be like a big soul forced and like all this trade try and make a series in making the film. But he's not like that. No it's it's very good very good characters and one of the characters says the same as my daughter. So that's nice. This is true. So i'm i'm out to season three and so far i've enjoyed all three seasons and i like the wild west. Give anything anyway. They sort of watching star trek Some friends of ours. Dave and yannick have a podcast t. l. gray hot. I was a stall bowls thing. That's right yes some is serenity bike i have now been on that podcast. Three times Which has been good because it caused me to. Actually go and watch some episodes and pay close attention to things in order to then like do a review of of those episodes so i've i've been moonlighting in fact. I think the latest episode. I was on with them and is out next week or something. Excellent so alan. What have you been doing with your time. I've been decluttering. I've been getting rid of things. I found it very therapeutic to catalog stuff. I think i need anymore. Hold on is the decluttering. Or is it the cataloging this therapeutic here. Yes so. I've been cataloguing some things that i don't think i need anymore but also checking on some things that have been busted like i had a st keisha. We call it for the nintendo sixty four. Dr visa sixty four in sat in a drawer for years literally because the power supply pulped and i opened the power supply and fuse blown because some other component blown and i didn't really want to go down set debugging pow supply. 'cause i'm not that expertise and someone on twitter pointed out that there's a company in hong kong who sell replacement. How supplies for this ten year old device fifteen year old device And so i ordered a power supply. So i'm probably going to sell this on ebay because now now it works and i've tested and he does still work. Now that i've gone new pow supply for it so fixing up a thing that's been signed the drool no actually get any value from that thing until now and it turns out that with a bit so I might get a bit of money for having kept in a draw for fifteen years. But yeah so i've been the the cataloging stuff on finding fascinating as well as a spreadsheet older things that i've been putting on ebay How much you know. I sold it for when it sold. What the paypal fees were how much the ebay fees were kind of stuff. So i can see you know. Have i made any money from these things. And how much of a made wall kind of price point is worth putting something on on ebay. And i've been trying to get hold of. Packaging is low cost but well packaged. and yeah. it's just been just quite enjoyable to sit with some some tape memberships and some bubble wrap and with Wrap something up and down to the post office and see the same woman who always takes my postles again yet again with some wall stuff. Yeah it's just. I found it very therapeutic knowing that there's now gaps in my house where the wills junk or stuff is good because this clearing stuff out please. The mind as well yeah. We've actually been having periodic clear as i'm sure. Any parents will attest to things last that long. When you've got us more child they they need to be refreshed and replaced and actually some of the. It's amazing some of the baby clothes that we bought hold quite a lot of value I mean they're not super fancy what we got but there's certain brands which people really go after they cost a bit more than you might get from the high street shop and therefore if people can get very slightly cheaper than full price they will plus they because the kids on in them for that long last there no walking. And you're not going outside. Yeah so they're not going to get like scuffed up and ruin we've sold you would believe it's new if if we lied about it awesome. The other thing i've been doing is listening to audio books. I remember the. I've got an audible subscription and no they don't sponsor this procast and unlike every other and i decided to take some time away from listening to podcasts. And actually listen. Listen to a book

"This ability you have to communicate with animals. Sounds extraordinary. The picture of the bear in your waiting room in the office is so interesting because I've seen a another shot of you. Right hugging the bear right next to bear hugging here and the bears head is almost larger than your entire body. And you do this thing with a marshmallow with the bear. What what tell me what what you do. I prefer marsh now on my mouth and the bear takes it out between my lips and tastes it are they. I can't explain it all. And they they they just read your luck a book and they know they spot fear if they if they sense fair then you you have to be very careful but if they sense there's no fear there then it just sit back like you and I are doing and we just have a little go out. Did you develop a way to deal with animals? Or do you think you'll always had. Oh I think in the womb. I had my folks love Al's deeply. Just Kinda my life. Somebody told me that you were at a zoo. And they said don't be don't be were. Don't be offended the animals. This animal never comes out. I think it was a giraffe. Oh it was. It was in DA at Columbus Zoo. Big Huge territory for this giraffe and he was an farthest corner. Wahab way way back there and he said don't he he won't come over even for food. Evil come over. Don't do well. I can't help but I have to talk to the animals so I should come on. Come on sweetie come on over come over. And he just looked Kamala. He came from that corner all the way across and put his head over the fence and let me pet. I was just mind boggled. I want to get back in there with I. Stay with you. What are you supposed is? How do you do it? I I think they sense a lack of fear my primary thing but also tremendous love German. I love animals more than most of the thoughtless over exception of a couple. That's another story. You're good relator to people as well. Have you learned anything about relating to animals that you apply to relating to people? Do you think I mean with the hub? Realize if you meet somebody for the first time like I've been the whole time we've been sitting here this nice engineer. I've been hitting on him while I'm talking just that same basic joke.

"When I I read your writing I wish prize at how much I admired it because I didn't know of you as a writer and the new book of short stories is amazingly good. Oh you read that. Thanks my God. It's so good. The usual you used language to get inside my head and surprise me and keep me amused and interested to get me deeper into the people and you don't use language to show off which I really admire. You could be poetic if you wanted to. But you you you're more plainspoken and and I really loved that. That's the stuff that I just naturally ended up gravitating to you know. I remember We were asked to buy books at a quote Unquote Book Fair and I looked at these titles that they had on car table after card table in high school or junior high school and I had never heard of any of these books. There were by writers. Never heard of the head titles. I'd never heard it and I finally said what is this. A scam you guys. Who Know We'd like we'd like to read we promote reading and it turned out that these books were specifically written for high schoolers. Why you'd never heard so the stories were simplistic. They weren't very so instead. I read in cold blood by Truman capote. That's a book. I got and it scared the living daylights out of me and from from a very early age on I wanted to read about the way things actually worked. And perhaps the way things actually. That's exactly the way I approach to reading. As a kid I was eleven years old and a friend of the family said to. Do you like to read and I said Yeah I really enjoyed you. Know what are you what did you would it be read lately? I said I just read. What MAKES SAMMY RUN? All my law at eleven even read it now. She's she had this stunned look on her face and then she said well. Of course that's over your head and I thought no. It is not shows you how people really behave. It's not the granddaddy of them. All that experience. When somebody has read enough of a book there was a book that was going around and the first line used the word crap in it all that David Copperfield. Kinda crap and none of us had ever seen a book in our library. Dead anything remotely like a swear word and so all of a sudden everybody wants to know what was catcher in the Rye reading catcher in the Ryan at red to lead to nine stories and and also to to be empowered but to discover it yourself I would say that to discover it yourself with the help of a good librarian. Who realizes you're hanging around you might WanNa you might want to like be if they'd like if you if you enjoyed reading airport by Leah by Arthur Hailey you might enjoy reading Armageddon by Leon Yours and so off begins kind of like guide to think when you were young. Would I'd give up on thirty or forty pages if I wasn't really into it. I still have a tendency to I when I was young. I loved reading anything that seems like it came from real life because I really wanted to understand how things got the way they were so we had a living room. That had been decorated. I guess by somebody who bought books by the yard as opposed to the color. They were red leather bound. Haw But they happen to be the congressional record so I opened up a book and lay on the floor and read the congressional record from the. I guess it was from the nineteen forties. And I couldn't get over it. These people would say the distinguished member from Idaho and and they'd insult each other in the most elite classical terms and I thought well this is fascist like a play dialogue and I loved it. There was that there were those type of books that I pretend to have read for a long time. You know when I finally read Moby Dick. Oh I loved Moby Dick. I pretended to have read moby. Dick for an awful long time like that with the Russians off the Hijaz I read. I read worn piece. I pretend to have read Rascal Mikhalkov Book. I would always get up to the reverend's sermon in moby. Dick and I couldn't get this like goes on for seventy pages. I couldn't get past that I couldn't get pass it and I was out Was out with some some friends at whatnot and a friend of one of the guys to sit I'm reading moby Dick You could never read Moby Dick. No you can and he said if you could just get past that reverend servants really does take. Everybody had that I'd pass it. I understand why it's now one of the greatest books now. Here's the thing when I read book of Short Stories. I think you're one of your obsessions crept out without typewriters typewriter. Yeah I mean the the chapters begin with the picture of a different typewriter. What how did you develop this obsession with? How how do you? How many times? How many typewriters you have at home in at home? I'll probably have fifteen scattered about the house but down at the office. I have like a hundred and twenty or something like that. I rest my case. I WHAT IS THE GOTTA? I gotTA start getting rid of them because my kids have said. We're not going to bury you with these things that you'd better start getting them away There is a story that is in that collection that is literally how I got my first typewriter. A friend of mine was a year ahead of me in school and when he went off to college he gave me his high school typewriter. Which was a piece of junk? It was like a knockoff. Nineteen seventies version of a very very very cheaply made horribly constructed typewriter. You could type on and I had it for a couple of years when I was in a I was working in. Cleveland is an actor and I needed to get it fixed and clear was at the Great Lakes Shakespeare Festival I was at the Cleveland. Play or no legendarily. So at the Cleveland Play House. Yeah that was. The Cleveland. Play House was the bitter rival of the best and vice versa. Thing and it was falling apart and the carriage would slide. In when I returned it would not line up properly. There was all sorts of problems with it so I took it to this old German guide. Detroit Avenue Business Machines on the west side of Cleveland. And he was at a shop that was just jammed with every kind of like thousand key adding machines and what have you and he was also servicing by that time printers copy machines or whatnot and he said what can I do for your young man. I said I need to have this typewriter service so let me see the machine. It had leather at case and I opened it up and threw his hands up and says I will not touch this machine album not I will not touch it. He said well I said why is your job to repair business. He says yes. I re- I work on machines. Not On toys. And this is a toy. And he lectured me for the better part in twenty minutes. About what a true typewriter isn't I walked out of there with a Hermes two thousand typewriter that he gave me five dollars off For Trade and for my junk type or any told. I'm just going to throw this away said okay. Fine but that Hermes two thousand typewriter which that particular typewriter got lost over the course about ten years and ten moves as since been replaced by. Well you know one hundred nineteen machines how I understand the story leading to own. You're asking why Y- probing deeper Allen. I mean I understand owning a typewriter because the guy gets turned onto it. But how did you wind up with? You have an obsession with typewriter. I do how did you get that? You can change the world with a typewriter now. You can't change our world two of the pen and paper. If your handwriting is legible enough mine is not. There is something about the order that a a good typewriter puts the words in the the. The margins are equal typefaces crisp. You can make mistakes but go back over it and what you come out of at. The end of a piece of paper is as unique. A creation as any oil painting watercolor photograph negative. Did you write your your book of Short Stories? On a typewriter I began. I wrote about first five pages of one draft of the story on a typewriter because I didn't have my laptop with me at the tunnel. It'd be mad. Dissed in order to do it on a typer but I type every day. I sent a letter to somebody. Leave a memo. Put out notes. I I I send a lot of letters on typewriters because there is something about the purity of the words in your head and the sound of the percussion of the of the keys hitting the paper. And I can't go back enough again to say the uniqueness of let me tell you story I was at nor ephrons house. We were good friends. We work together and nor was one of the Great. Inspirations and She had up on the wall of just in the in the hallway. She had a letter and I leaned in. It was a framed letter so did not get a letter from the letterhead was No Coward and it was a typewritten letter from a Goldeneye his place down in Down Jamaica Right. His his his winter home in Jamaica and it said An all it was whereas a letter to somebody thanking them for a very witty lunch. A lovely a lovely afternoon at their house and there was a little kind of joke at it was obviously shared between Dole cowered in the end a hostess and it was assigned Knoll and I looked at that and I thought no coward type that at his house in Jamaica named Golden Eye. And now it's sixty years later it's hanging on a friend of mine's wall. Nobody throws away a typewritten. So type or a typewritten letter kind of has its own signature and you can picture that person's hands hitting the keys is at the end the force of your finger on the keys impacts the depth of. Here's here's the thing when you type with a typewriter. You are not applying ink onto paper. You're stamping into the fiber of the papers. If I always type out dear Alan alda which by the way I will send you a letter. I can't wait that those are the. Da Our space a. l. a. and Space A. L. A. Space are not on the surface of the paper. They are inside the fabric of the paper and that alone to me. It turns it into a form of a graphic art. It's not just an never mind.

"I'm older and this is clear and vivid conversations about connecting and communicating if it's possible to turn compassion into a muddy economic commodity. But if you can make a movie about compassionate understanding and have it be so glamorous because it's a movie that you paid to see that you want to emulate what that is low then there you actually have created a purpose for a movie beyond the Holding up the mirror to to human nature. I I met Tom. Hanks on a plane decades ago and I ran into him a couple of times at award shows and we even made a picture together bridge of spies. But I never really got to know Tom until he came into our studio in Manhattan and we talked about some of his eclectic interests like finding meaning in pop entertainment communicating with children. And of course typewriters. I said he was elected right. Come on in and enjoy the ECLECTIC world of Tom. Hanks it's it's a really Nice Day in the neighborhood Tom. This is so great. Did you read here target? I'm Kinda I'm Kinda pinching myself when you did You did a TV movie. This was long before the green show. you did a TV movie. Who's called the Glasshouse yes It was shot in prison right. I'm still haunted by the final image in which you're the innocent man and you come. There's mayhem that's going on and you are shot dead On the other side of the wrongly chosen door and it was a long shot of just you hunched over with all the backstory behind it. Now that's the thing that you're in. What a date myself. But I say I'm in junior college or high school and I'm watching on. Tv AND TV movies. Were not supposed to be that. Poignant in those days you had the occasional Bryan Song you played Carol chessmen the Us More about mine and I'm not suspending your IMDB. I'm just going on pure pure memory. And I I remember. I was always on the lookout for For something other than the standard fare of television. Because I'm from the generation that knew what time it was by. What was on you know and love of life was over time for you? Go to school and the every now and again. There was one that ninety minute. Television movie came out. There was kind of an art form to it and and Steven Spielberg may dual. That was the move came out during that time there was Bryan Song. Of course that was about With James Caan says as a Brian Picolo football all the guys at school or talked about the next day but the Glass House and a few other few things would come along and I just thought well that's not that's not like an episode of Mannix. That's not like that's not like the high chaparral. This is something. What do you think it is? What how and you made a career doing this of doing stories that appeal to a popular audience. WanNa be entertained and yet had meaning have a layer of meaning the trick to it would so how you go about well. I've been lucky to be able to do that many times to you. Well you kind of like in a lot of ways. You set the standard for like. I don't know well the green show you would do because I know you started writing them. You started directing them as well came one of the you became one of the powerbrokers there on the green show. Of course we're talk about 'em apostrophe a green. I heard that somebody on the show called the green show work and had to put on those olive drab uniform. Nobody ever mentioned that to me. Maybe it was like ever but And you do things like set set. Set a half hour in real time. What happened in that? Was this show. A road was with the Doctor. Who was our adviser and then there was one from the perspective of the patient who couldn't talk because he had a tracheotomy and all the whole thing was from his Hispanic. Yes you guys really loved it when we could tell the story in an unusual way. I remember and this this is Tom. Hang podcast. And I'm talking to Alan All. I remember the first couple of seasons of that. Show it would. There were times where they tried to have kooky episodes. Boxing matches what traditional things instead until writers got used to the idea that we wanted a little more substance they would give us standard servers comedies. Yeah wacky visitors from higher higher you know you play a trick. Gone visiting colonel or something like that and then you guy seemed like was I thought there was a palace coup here amongst everybody that you ended up doing us. A real substance particularly look look what the subject matter was the Korean War right. Well that that we wanted to make sure that I wanted to make sure before we did this. Show that we would not shrink from showing how how bad wargin be there. Was I think to you had the surreptitious comment on Vietnam at show that we did not have anywhere else in popular culture per prickly not on a on a network show? Korea was substituting for what we had just been through not that long before in less than ten years with Vietnam War ended so we had In Mash we had We had you doctors presenting a humanistic portrait of how mad the whole thing and some people say that we contributed to the end of the war. And I never thought so. But I've heard you say in an interview that you felt for instance Philadelphia did help the movement toward accepting AIDS as something. We needed to work on did you. Did I get that wrong to? Do you think it's possible to do I? I was answering a question at some point and it was it was what. What do you think you're going to accomplish with this movie? Philadelphia was a movie that cost X. Millions of dollars and needed to make that money back. Mitt had to compete in the marketplace. That's what I'm asking you how you go about well. The the my answer to that question was says. Look if it's possible to turn compassion into a muddy economic commodity but if you can make a movie about compassion understanding and have it be so glamorous because it's a movie that you paid to see that you want to emulate what that is well then there you actually have created a purpose for a movie beyond the Holding up the mirror to to human nature but boy there so many movies. That are the opposite of compassion. And that's fun you know. I grew up watching movies like the seven faces of Dr Lau and Jason and the ARGONAUTS and You Know Doris Day movies you know. Please don't eat the daisies and by and large. I was usually entertained by almost all movies. I remember seeing a movie called. I swayed the name of it was duel at. Diablo was a western Dennis. Weaver and I think Sidney Poitier in it and those were those. Were the movies that we were used to seeing this type of those type of commerce that even our parents had you know John Wayne Moves I remember going to see McClintock or Chisholm with my dad and my dad was receiving two hours of entertainment. Just like he had been receiving since he was not in the thirties and forties and fifties. It was the thing to do and spend your time then By by the time I became discerning viewer I was looking for something that I could recognize myself. I that where I could see. I've seen that. I feel like that guy. I've seen that in in my community or I've had those same sort of questions about what life is like and so a Not I would just say I ended up growing up watching movies about grownup people going through grownups things and that was what I ended up. I was always attracted to though the those particular kind of human elements of as opposed to. We gotta get these forty guns through Apache Pass..

"Make sure that as marketers were thinking through because technology can be fun and some of these. His parents can be exciting. Make sure you've got that use case really defined use case of what you're trying to solve for and that it's solving a problem for the customer not that you want to throw some technology at it right right right well if you were in front of a bunch of marketers which you will be when this airs. What should marketers be doing? Or considering when they're trying to understand how to improve their customer experience where would you tell them the starter or think about and I think customer experience is going to change much over the next ten years in. How at a if you if you dream about like Gosh you know when when when you're sick are going to be delivering your medicines and when you go to a grocery store you're going to gauge the human or a machine and you know the world's going to change a the ten year so that's equal parts exciting sometimes overwhelming and so when I talk about with with marketers is there's five things you can do to future proof yourself and future-proof the the business right now and that first one is focused on on customer experience him make sure they're you're you're on the customer data so the first thing I would advise mortars orders to do is really understand your analytic maturity and I say that as a as a marketer at SAS and we provide industry-leading analytics? I'm constantly looking at my. I my teams analytic maturity. Do we have all the data first party third party data that we need. Do we know her. Data is that we broken down those data silos and then is the team empowered and trained. I'm to be able to really gain insights from data and apply it so really look at Jane Olympic maturity. The second recommendation I would have is is start small and find some wins and really celebrate. Those wins wins because this is the road to customer experience success. It's a journey. Until you gotta find those those short-term wins and and talked about the Chapada example we actually ended up that started as a pilot. That's now business as usual and our CEO highlighted that on main stage at one of our flagship conferences just last month and so what celebration really got to enjoy that success us. The third thing I'd say is be a customer experience champion within your organization and I do believe that customer experience is a whole company sport but marketers have a really uniquely positioned to move this forward and so be that champion but really think through champion of the customer experience the Voice of the customer and and as a marketer you have access to that data And if your moral compasses pointed towards what's right for the customer you're in a good place right. The fourth thing I would say is. Bill does cross divisional bridges. You can't do this alone. You need to have those partners just just like with GDP are. I made better friends with the legal and it team but all of us in an organization needs to be working on customer experience so team up with sales with with I certainly once again legal finance hr every group has their own view of customer experience. And if you can go at it as a group you're going to be more successful and then the last thing I'd say a Cliche we talk about embracing change. I think you need to instigate change when it comes to customer experience because if you're not if you're not disrupting yourself you're not disrupting your company. Your customers will and so. They have a different expectation. And if you're not you're not changing to meet that. Then then they're going to choose to do business elsewhere. I Love I love the instigate gate changed. Not just driving. Make it happen Last question for you. What do you think the future customer experience looks like? I know we talked about ten. Years is hard to predict anything. So I'm asking you potentially the thing. This hardest thing to do but where do you think it's going to end up. I mentioned we did this. Research study with Daniel Newman of future research. And we did that because we wanted to charter our own course but also help our customers and so the research really came up with Some bold predictions along the way on topics like how wearables are going to be much more embedded into our our day to day. Even envisions a world. Where you can buy with your is is because of the way wearables can be so imagine how much that changes for for those of us on the retail marketing side? Right I think something. We really didn't talk about it. All was blockchain and the impact blockchain is going to have even more broadly. The research imagined a future where maybe we can end fake news. Because we've got blockchain looking at where does the source of data coming from so. I think that par or is is really fascinating. I do believe that we are going to see augmented reality. And virtual reality be much more part of our day to day lives and and we see that with our kids with folkman go right but but I think retailers are in front of this this trend. You think of Laurie Al.. WHO's got APPs to help you? Choose the right lipstick and that struggles real meaningful in Utah has something where you're able to see what the close look like on you. I Kee- can bring the store to your home. I think we as marketers need to find ways to help our customers experience experience our technology in a more immersive way a little bit.

"It is who makes it ultimately. Let me me by it right now. They won't let the by it and thereby buttons Google's going to have their buy buttons so I think that's the future of search. It'll be much much more intelligent but also more useful we're going we see more. No click results Google. But that's a good thing when you have a no quick results like what's the weather today three years ago. You want to know what the weather was you google. What's the weather Raleigh? And then you had to click into like CBS News and you had to click today only and then it would tell you after you wash the video. Now you Google just tells you so. I think we're going to see more and more of that because it's useful and then from from there you'll do more searches because that's ultimately what we want so future of search. They'll just be more waste search. I don't think we've always putting devices in our houses route for us to search not to. They're putting devices sir houses not because they just want to give us another way to play music they want us to do more searches so landscape. A search will change the way we're going to do search change and things will get from search will change. You may be able to say okay. Google what's What's the price of laundry detergent and Google? Say It's going to be at your door in two hours so ultimately I think that's where they wanna go. Well thank you for coming on the show. Today it's great to be here.
