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 if you read the Ad? I don't think is GonNa work that good. But if you let me freak out a little bit like I do for Dow or open a Chris Cores Wider Zen desk or maintain whatever it is sand ask you know we always have a great experience with those advertisers nats. We'd excetera what what is your best practice for? The advertisers with the host read ads. So on or don't have that funding. Look I. Think it's If you if we can get you to have fun, we prefer it right at. But at the end of the day, you've got to think about it a couple of different ways. Number One, a host read ad is always going to beat an ad that somebody else writes and inserts into your show hundred percent of the time. That's why as we get more dynamic insertion, you'll see bigger premiums for the host read now when you're doing a host read Does it matter if you believe in the product, we know that it doesn't hurt. It's not always a straight line though correlating from your passion to the performance and Bill Burr is like the great case study for that because he can do an ad where he is insulting salting the advertiser, the whole time and it will work fantastically well. We know that I listened to bill. I gotTA. Look. The exception that's exceptional. Right. But I've seen people put their heart and soul out for a commercial. Nope and then you've got somebody that's insulting them or totally apathetic and it works great. But I here's what I think the common denominator. It's your relationship with the audience. If they know that you are somebody who has character that says I don't say things that I don't mean and that gets you don't have to spell that out in the ad for the audience to know that they know that intuitively and that does cause. So so went like we've got hundreds of millions of dollars of performance data in house from all these different brands and. Thousands of PODCASTS, and what we see is there's an influence factor that nobody publishes that every show has it's purely based on the trust and engagement they have with their audience and the ad will be a beneficiary of that to the extent that you have already established it with your audience but does it help if you go the extra mile? Of course, we'd like longer ads we want passionate ads we want ads that are interesting. All of that helps but none of it matters the on Ernest. Who is the best raiders of the PODCAST? Who Do you think like just give me top five six right off the top of your head people who just they just and they do a good job advertisers come back. To the unknown host because like it's the long tail, the ones that'll do like an eight minute commercial. But. Let me tell you something that works does the more you tell? 'em -solutely. That's a little over the top. That's a little over. Who Do you? Who does a good job read Nancy the. These, are you find distasteful Marco I do them in my show? CHEF. A lots of brands I think we might have somebody like to read most who you like to read most. I think my favorite one to read right now is probably Lynn owed because use them their hosts, a web host and I use them for for my server hosting and they basically let me free form it and loved A. Simple stuff like they violet inventory they always pay on time. They're really easy to work with and Maisy people and I love winnowed legitimately. That's why like I sought them out because Jason like you were saying like I want to be able to use almost everything that I'm doing a sponsor reading and that way I can actually say legitimately I use this I like this this is what it's good at. And People Trust me for that because they know that I have standards about that. And I'm like sometimes I'll I'll read a an advertisement I don't use, but then I won't say I use it so. Be Like I love vape pens. These. Day I got offered sponsorship for e cigarettes. I was like I don't smoke like not just holding your hand when you're at the poker table, would will literally said to me will pay all your by ends for every tournament. You WanNa play at the world. Series. POCO you want to play one, hundred, thousand, a quarter million whatever we just want you eat cigarette hat e cigarette thing is a lot of money and they said whatever you win in the tournament. It's yours as well. Fuck that I'm not smoking e cigarettes is terrible. That's GONNA come out to kill people no fun anyway in that like. Walmart one but coors light we I like she liked cores light. It's like my favorites. So, I crack open a crisp whereas other hilarious that coors light. Even, you'd recognize his podcasting and I was like I'll drink a course lied on air because I'll drink. Of course lied after I'm off bucket up to me would, of course like right now cracking down Carolina Chris Coors light and then they're like Oh del what about cancel culture and using Dan. And we'll wrap up on this and I appreciate you guys giving the hour. Dan You have people like Ben Shapiro, who is like this brainiac Harvard kid who sometimes says something stupid. He might have some very old world views and like doesn't like transgender people or. An. Basically could be a religious person who doesn't believe in brief marital sex whatever. And then you have this huge contingent of people now who are saying, Hey. If I don't like what you say and I'm not saying I. Mean Listen I am one hundred percent in support of trans people people should be able to be whatever gender they want. They should make love to her they want or not be a sexual rock on my position. I could not disagree more with Ben Shapiro's. You have to taunt transpeople it's low. It's disgusting. Trans. People get murdered in the streets. So like literally few Ben Shapiro for Dunking on Trans people who are just marginalized and hurt and endanger their whole lives in a camp. Easy to go through that experience my heart goes out to them put that aside. People have tried to cancel Ben Shapiro for his feelings on you know as as a very devout religious person his feelings on premarital sex, etc etc. homosexuality or how he feels about transpeople. What do you think of this and your agency? So how do you how on Earth do you deal with? Whether it's You know bench appear on one side or maybe on the other side you have you know Joe Rogan having Alex. Jones. On who you know said, the people from Sandy Hook, was a false flag and that those children though those poor parents whose children were murdered, that was done for political reasons. It was like the fake Space Mundi how do you deal with this and how do you mitigate it and is this an acute now in Pakistan? It's getting a lot more difficult when you have opinion driven content right and I think we're seeing the studies the country is more polarized than it's ever been people are less proud of being American. You know we're we're the United States and we've never been less united in in our thinking everything seems to become a political issue right whatever it. Is the world got sick. It's it's Democrats versus Republicans somehow right and and so this is something I'm very very focused on actually launching a podcast called Oxford Road presents the divided states of media because brands don't know what to do..

"It's even worse than the head because you have to do all your business on their platform as well. And podcast and doesn't have that right now and it never has. Apple has has been the the directory of choice and apple still has the largest APP to consume podcast but they have really been fairly benevolent in their in their ruling of podcasts. They really take a very light hand to it and have really embraced and empower the opening semester they really could. So. This one company having this massive share hasn't really been a problem for us, and then everybody who's not apples is all kind of working in the same eagles them for the most part, and then the difference is that spotify did what a few other companies have tried to do before and have would met with mixed success, which is to kind of create a walled garden of podcasts that tries to become the default way people listen. To podcasts and that normally wouldn't go very far. But the difference here is that with a combination of spotify's immense existing market share people listening to music using their APPs and also immense amount of money they've put into it. spotify has been able to not only acquire a pretty big chunk of market share pretty quickly. But although it's not as big as as most people think it is, but it is still a substantial market share. But also, they've been able to now really put a pretty big push of buying exclusive content for spotify right and this is where it becomes tricky because if you're just trying to get listeners then everyone still playing on basically the same footing everyone still you know there have been a couple of premium services before that had occlusive content, but they weren't. They didn't go very far. So for the most part, you know an APP like over Catholic, my it can. It can compete pretty easily as well as any other APP. That's like overwhelming. There's hundreds of podcasts out there and we could all basically play the same catalogue of content and so it's so it's the wonderful ecosystem of all this creativity and all these wonderful tools and different apps for different preferences It's with a few exceptions, very privacy respective very. Creative friendly. It puts a lot of control it creators hands. Yes. The Creator gets decide. Hey, I have this rss feed you can use it under these rules and if you break those rules, I can restrict your access to it. When we get back was quick break Dan I want to take your temperature on what you think. The Joe Rogan spotify deal is, and if that is going to become an ongoing trying to what it means for the business of the open source open platform world podcasting we get back on this week start up. Alright would send pro online from Pitney Bowes. You can simply print postage stamps and shipping labels even working remotely. Let's face it. A lot of us are doing for as low.

"It's this week in startups and I'm really excited about today's podcast because. I've got two of the smartest people in podcasting and one of the makes the greatest podcasting APP in my opinion his Marco Arment and he created the overcast. PODCASTING APPS which if you don't use or pay for and you're a power podcast user you don't know what you're missing. It's literally like every innovative feature that you see every other podcasting. APP. was in overcast six months ago. It's basically the roadmap for every other APP. Welcome to the program for the First Time Marco. Thank. You very much nice to be here and thanks for that. Amazingly awesome introduction. Hope I can live up to it. Well, I mean I just you know when I look at a product. I think the thing that can you look back on after investing in two hundred companies when when you see great product, it's undeniable and I know you worked on Tumbler as well what was your role at Tumbler I don't remember but I know you did very well. And you and you major contributor to that correct yeah. I. Was basically like David's employees the whole time as he was starting at. So I was the lead programmer I was doing a lot of the back end stuff a lot of the server stuff and it was basically just David for awhile and then we eventually heard more people. Yeah and that was another one of those transcendent products where you just looked at it and you're like, wow. The the amount of craft and nuance in the product and when I saw, you know and no offense to spotify podcast, which is fine or. Apples podcasting APPS grade. There's a lot of great apps out there but what's really I think unique about overcast as you made it for power users, correct me if I'm wrong because you can make lists of your podcast, you can put them into subgroups. You can change the speed of each podcast. You can do the speed based on each podcasts or if you're listening to me or Ben Shapiro, you wouldn't put it on more than one acts. But if you're listening to somebody had talks, you know like Sam Harris. Sam. Harris needs a one point six and then you also have the smart speed button work chops out the blank spots instead of audio doing nat. Then you have the sleep timer which can end at the end of the podcasts or there's I mean, the feature list is just so brilliant about the start of why you created overcast. One. Because like I'm a nerd I'm a podcast center. I'm a programmer I wanted to do it my way, and because that's what nerds do. I made an APP that was like my ideal podcast APP but also I wanted to make a stake in the ground that at the time, the trims, all restarting and overcast been running. It's been out since two thousand fourteen and the trend was already very clear then that there would be efforts to slowly lockdown podcasting into walled gardens and I wanted to really make sure that I could put a stake in the ground and make. The podcast client ecosystem, even more diverse than our was to make it harder because if the if the ecosystem is really diverse among a whole bunch of different APPS, they're all just using the open rss based ecosystem that no APP is going to have an easy time coming in there and locking that down and so that's part of why I decided not only. Am I gonNA make my preferred APP but I'm GonNa make it try to have a wide appeal and make it free up front which at the time almost none of the other third party APPS for. Free. Make Free Front and figure out some other way to make money down the road which I went through a bunch of stuff and eventually did. And there's a pro version and I think the pro-abortion lets you turn off ads if you to and. More back on by the way. Thank you because I want to see who's advertising because I'm just curious. It's like an it's a discovery thing if people will pay and we did some experimenting in paying for this podcast and it was great. We got some really target users I was like I want to actually see the ads because I'm curious who's investing in their podcast. Also on the program today is Dan Grainger and he runs a firm called Oxford road. Now, if your civilian podcast listening, you may not know what that is but Dan co-hosted this week in marketing, which was a podcast I started when I started guessing our twenty eleven virtually shut down to just to focus on this one because I couldn't find enough great hosts and couldn't manage all these big personalities are welcome to the podcast Dan explained to people at Oxford Rodas. So, we're an AD agency. I think the unique thing about us is we got in very early to the podcast space pre cereal. And we've worked with some of the best brands, one of the things we were able to take advantage of was the renaissance that was happening in audio at the same time as the renaissance that was happening with D. to see brands. So we were very early with companies like dollar Shave Club legalzoom. You know companies that that. Now we all know but at the time, what they were doing seemed very novel. So we were able to Kinda ride both waves at the same time in business very fast there was able to serve both of those constituencies and to great effect, and so we've been able to expand it's not just podcast, but that is our signature dish. And we're really an audio first agency. Okay and so brought both of these gentlemen on the podcast one from the standard side and the consumer and went from the business side in terms of advertising talk about the State of podcasting in twenty twenty as many of you know started this podcast. Under a different name Calcutta's cast twelve years ago I think in eleven years ago. For this one, we've done over thousand episodes but I think it's a good time to pause because there's been a lot of activity I want to start with the big seismic event which Marco you alluded to, which was, hey, this was built on open standards by a friend of ours Dave. Winer. Who led are s really simple syndication is that right and then he added an attachment the ability in your rss feed to at an attachment that was the key moment that enabled pockets in crack Marco Yep. And ever since then it's grown and nobody has been able to strangle it or control it. So just like the web, just like blogs which actually blocks has been Kinda deprecated. We'll get into that but the web and email, and of course, podcasting have exploded all on this open standard market. When you saw the announcement, that Joe Rogan had has your show I believe license not bought for what looks like manner fifty, one, hundred, million dollars for some number of years I don't think all the details are out. You were like F. This iming on twitter was your quote. Explain why that is so problematic to you and to the industry. The main thing is the podcasting has has gotten to where it is and is as great and awesome as it is for all the reasons anybody who's ever heard of RSS Chard familiar with you know it's it's this wonderful open ecosystem with a wide variety of producers and consuming APPs and this great ecosystem that isn't controlled by a single entity for the most part apple's kind of an asterisk in certain ways. But for the most part, it's not really controlled by an individual entity and you can compare it to something like Youtube, where if you WANNA make video that matters at all today. It has to be on youtube basically, and so that you have this one company is one platform controlling the by far the majority of this really important medium and you look at doing stuff on the web, and if you do stuff on the web, you are really beholden to facebook for traffic and you really beholden to Google for like for inbound search, and each had these these couple of massive companies that control a massive part of of Your Business and and looking at because Youtube..
Innovative Solutions for a Happy, Healthy, Connected Workplace
"Lot of people have perceptions about what funding the workplaces some of you may have been traumatized by creepy team building stuff. It's not that it's really really not so. I think you'll be surprised and pleased that there's there's alternatives to that and establish fun as a process. Ask Not an event and that was one of my moments years ago when I was doing this in the workplace. We'll we'll talk a little bit about that. that God wouldn't it be better if you took those euphoric but fleeting feelings that you get from an event once or twice a year and break those up consistently throughout the course of the year wouldn't that yield better revette better results and in fact it did and that's that's how we really got started with this model and then finally teach you how to easy effective affordable programming again. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised tries so let's get into it so the agenda terms you will not recognize that's because we made them up. The first is easy. We're going to talk a little bit about the evolution of fun the work place the why and the Roi So so why is fun your competitive advantage thankfully. There's a lot of people out there today. A lot of brilliant mind Sean Acre Simon Sinek Tony Shay others who have done a lot of the the research and have the experience about the Y. Fund and we're going to talk about that it. It's usually frames frames up a conversation about the health too but know that our expertise really GonNa talk about today is how to successfully implement fund or place place so after we do the the the evolution of wine or why the laws of fun in these are the things that we learned over the course of a more than a decade of delivering of funding workplace in every conceivable vertical market that you could imagine any is companies doesn't matter these laws or universal truth. I WANNA call them our our standard within any application and then the shared experience agreeance and this is where the model really gets different. We talk about what's fun for you. Your culture your environment not inflicted fun on on you as some people may have experienced in the past and then how to develop your creative inventory. This is literally how to put it together and create brief but organic in fun activities in the workplace that really will get you moving on your way to establishing a culture of funded happiness at work and then finally finely design activate and sustain so you know it's all words and talk unless you actually make the commitment to do it and put it on the calendar even make it happen so that's the agenda. Let's let's get started so the first peers the Lucien end of the why are are alive fun at work. I'm going to spend a little bit of time just credentialing if you will so what makes us the experts and you know why is this information meaningful and what I want you to take away in this piece of it is that this is all based on practice and experience right so it's not a theoretical this is based on practice and experience it all started many many years ago at a company. United Electric Supply or there for many years and they had a work hard play hard ethic act before culture was even a term that was used in business but work hard play hard ethic ethic and I just naturally gravitated towards the play hard. I already knew how to work hard so but my my hunters suspicion was that that was was this companies competitive advantage that play and fun. I'm led to all these wonderful results. This company had on high productivity high retention high profitability on paper. They shouldn't have even been in business because there's a lot bigger competitors that could take them out from a pricing standpoint but wonderful customer service great place still is today but we formed the circuit club and many of you may be on on committees at at work trying to fund plan fun activities in the workplace or engagement committees culture committees so we had the circuit club we met every two weeks ten people and we learned a lot through that process but I started to see that it wasn't just appropriate to have fun after work work while we did those events in Annual Holiday Party and summer picnic as many of you made may still do what I noticed over the period of years as they became Louis and less popular as people's demands for the personal time just became more and more evidence. There was less attendance at at those events so I thought Jeez. Let's plan things brief but consistently throughout the course of the year and we did in that model really seemed to work so my fascination continued. You'd I started to research fun workplace and this guy came up so if anybody can guess who that is and you can type it in Dan. I'll give you send you two dollar bill or a book or something. I don't know but that is Dr Paul McGee and he's one of the foremost authorities is on fun and humor laughter and very well published and just really awesome guide. He happened to live in my home town or when house research in it. I thought what the heck this guy's from my neighborhood so we met and you know he he really thought that this theory theory I had about starting a company called the fun department to to change the model of of traditional team building you know was was a good one but he he said be prepared for a long haul. there's a lot of nonbelievers out there and then before. I got started. I thought wow jeeze. Maybe I should get some professional help. Somebody who really cleaners deliver fun so I got this guy so Dave Raymond is the guy who who created the best mascot of all all time he lived as the philly fanatic for many many years and it was a friend of mine and I thought Jeeze if anybody knows how to have fun at stave so God together with Dave and and we created this this company fun department back in five did this team building events for many many years until today and we still do lots of team building events and then wrote a book documented or process. We wanted to teach people this model in process that you're GONNA learn today so we started a training consulting part of the business and then we got out into the product business in two thousand seventeen actually shipping subscription a services as of boxes of fun and then finally in very proud to be partners with delivering happiness twenty eighteen we started a partnership with the age age and if anybody knows that company born out of Tony Shays experience with ZAPPA's starting a company based on culture the happiness and fun and taking a very tradition no boring business online shoes and making it mega successful so one of many examples of companies today that are disruptors in the marketplace that are starting with culture starting with happiness happiness and fun and and building a company from there so much like the experience at United Electric where nothing fancy or glamorous about electric electrical supplies allies but they had this amazing culture that was based on funded happiness at work so that's enough credentialing sorry if it seemed like a commercial just wanted to give you a little history and background and and why you know why it's important to recognize that this again is based on practice and experience so the more data and we're going to again talk about the how to but I I want to cover the why because most conversations about funded happiness happiness at work. Somebody's gotTa be convinced. It's leader you know. CEO CFO somebody's gotta say Jeez. Why do we WANNA do this. What makes it important so this. Is You just one statistic and it's one of my favorites because it says eighty one percent of employees not this is not from leaders. It's not for management. eighty-one birth sign of employees in companies denoted as great in fortunes one hundred best companies to work for say they work in a fun workplace. Environment Arment so that's significant because from an employee standpoint fun has the highest correlation of any other thing that makes up a the culture and what people think denotes a great company so it's important to know that from your employees perspective that fun ranks very vary hi it's sixty to seventy percent correlation to a great company so important to notice if you're GONNA start with culture why not start with you know with fun

I will just say on this beautiful beautiful Christmas day that I am skeptical of the. The apple did a bad thing articles. Apple does do a bad thing. Sometimes they do some real stupid stuff.

The last thing that I saw was that there's no evidence of that. For hot garbage fire on all fronts beyond what apple denies happening Appleseed. Som denials that are on a different level than denials. They've had in the past. It sounds like Bloomberg has been pretty pretty quiet about it. That was that was weird.

"I wonder about the face. I d stuff only because I there is the the, the trepidation, I feel like we gotta give it to apple that Apple's going to do the right thing here. But you know, that means they need to get a orientation, agnostic touch or face idea work and convinced that they've sold. They gotta have like there's no way they're going. Say, please hold your ipad upright in order to unlock it like there's no way that that would be so bad. I believe the second generation face ID with orientation. I know system will come to all of the line all the product. So the too expensive iphones will get it and the ipad pros will get it. It may be tied to the CPU, right? Like the whatever. But like I believe that they would be madness to ship his product. I will. I was gonna say, eat my hat and have a hat, and I don't wanna eat anyway. So I will be extremely surprised to see that because I feel like you don't need to do that. You don't need face idea the ipad yet. You could do another revision with small bells in a home button, so you could still find a way to do it. One of the defining characteristics of the ipad pro is the keyboard. The first product that Apple's build on IRS that apple keyboard for and keyboards are fundamentally horizontal. So this is back to my complaints about the ipad in general. I know sometimes people use ipads and portrait vertical. I use them that way too, but I mostly use them in horizontal and I think it's actually a little silly that the ipad is not fundamentally horizontal that the apple logo when you started up at the apple logo on the back are not horizontal that their vertical. I think that's the primary orientation of an ipad pro because of among other things that keyboard. And because of the way that multitasking built where it's all adding things on the sides that is, you can multitask in in in vertical. It's not great. So of course like like they need to go the other direction like they, they need, they need face idea to work both orientations for this thing for sure. But like also any idea that portrait is dominant on the ipad pro. I think it's a mistake. I think it's the wrong approach to that product. I'm show you seeing the whole like potential concern and trepidation about way the small keyboards gonna fit like it looks like the small connect as maybe moved, maybe this, it looks like it's going to be portrait, which I just don't buy any of that. I think there's still a smart connector on the side, and I saw somebody I think maybe even Marco Arment suggests that I wonder if that other item that's down by the dock connector is something like a pencil attachment. Maybe I don't think that that's right. But yeah, I, I understand. I don't know, but that that makes more sense to me than that's the smart key. Keyboard connector in in a really weird place where every smart keyboard has to cover the entire back of the ipad for it to work unless and here's the big unless unless apple blows us away by doing a full on laptop style shell too attached to the ipad pro where you could like holding put in your lap untilt it and all of those things. That's what I want. Wouldn't that be something? Wouldn't that be something? Wouldn't that be wonderful? We'll talk about that and that that would be a thing. The loss thing, no new ipad mini specifically cold out for those of you that think that they might be one?.

"And my second choice would be automated manual. And my distant third choice would be a torque converter automatic, and my incredibly disinformed choice would be cvt. You know, it's funny. You bring that up a little bit of a spoiler alert. I did not by anything, don't worry, but I am getting a car in a couple of weeks that will be the next Casey on cars. But I'm actually currently in a different car which is a cvt equipped car. And I have to say, I don't actively like it, but I don't actively dislike it either simulating an automatic as one of those. No, it's not. So if I take off from a stop and let's say, I'm at one third throttle the car will just sit at two thousand rpm until I decided to stop accelerating. It's the most peculiar feeling in the world. It almost feels like a market is going to be deeply offended by this. It almost feels like a halfway between a a gasoline car in an electric car because there doesn't seem to be any division of gears. There's no there. It's just it's just power. Now in this particular car, it's not a lot of power and I don't want to disclose much more than that, but it's just power that's fairly consistent if not an overabundance of it until you stop and it's a very, very, very odd sensation. I agree with you. I would certainly never choose to have a cvt car. And I, I wouldn't say I like it, but a lot of people I know especially early on when they were new deeply disliked these. And I think perhaps because it doesn't even bother trying to simulate gears, I don't find it actively bothersome, but I don't particularly enjoy it either. It's very, very, very peculiar. Most of them do simulate years now because they've learned through bitter experience that people don't like it like the promise of cvt that you can run the engine of the most efficient speed all the time. But people hate that in terms of like, it just sounds like it's droning and it doesn't feel right. So most of the geez you can buy today, are they simulate all the stupidity automatics like. Even though they totally don't have to doing. It's like the fake engine noise and Argos Oldham five. It is a simulation that makes the the less efficient and worse than it could possibly be to make the experience subjectively more pleasing to people who expect that. Maybe eventually those people get old and die and people get used to it. But honestly, electric is the way out of this. If you want something, it doesn't have gears and stuff like that doesn't have multiple gear ratios that it shifts through get an electric and the droning. I guess if you have a powerful engine with enough noise isolation, you can pretend you're driving in like a bad electric, but I don't. I feel like the cvt is a transitional form that has no place in my life ever. Thanks to our sponsors this week, hover betterment and squarespace, and we will see you next week. Now the show is over.

Gadget Lab Podcast: The New MacBook Pro
"It's also a great computer like a little while I loved that escape. If the only reason the only things I hated about it were that I did have keyboard problems with it. I had a bunch of like stuck keys and weird popping and everything. And so I did keep problems with it. And the two ports were really annoying on trips like when when I travel I, she podcasting or charged monop- top and only having to porch was pretty limiting. But other than that, I love that computer. It was great, and that's why I ordered a thirteen inch of the new one, but I wanted I wanted the ports, but like I think the reason they call it pro is I think more be, you know, because it visually resembled the other. Thirteen inch pro just fine also, I think because they wanted to help justify the cost increase because it really was to map book air, but they increase the cost so much. I felt like they, you know, that was my guess at why did it. But ultimately, if I was in charge of this product line of naming his product line, I wouldn't want any responsibility because they would fire me immediately. But if I was in charge of naming this product line and I, I guess I'd be fired from that too. But. They would call epoch wanted map escape. But I think I would say the MAC book, air brand is too strong to throw away when this generation soft being sold. I think something should always be called a map air because it's such a good name and it has such brand equity among consumers. So what I would say is renamed the the twelve inch macbook macbook air with next generation, say, this is the new macbook air. It's the twelve inch macbook renamed the map book escape to simply MAC book. I could see that. I mean there is some sense to that, especially if they get a twelve inch macbook down to nine ninety nine, which I kind of think it might be their plan. Let us know what I'm arguing. I'm saying, bring the bring the escape, bring thirteen inch down and call it the MAC book. Right? And because right now you have this conflict of the lowest end product is also the smallest and lightest, right? But that requires such trade offs that a lot of the low end buyers aren't willing to make that it that shouldn't be the lowest end product right. It should be the low end product should be to hit a price point not to hit a size, right? And so that's why the the escape should be the low end product. It should be called the MAC book. The MAC book air should be that little twelve inch, super thin one. And then macbook pro is the higher price, higher power and the thirteen inch macbook escape. All the thirteen inch. Current macbook pros are an apple themselves emphasize this when they introduced them only at like two sheets of paper heavier than a MAC book air. Let's say it's, they are technically.
