"bmw" Discussed on The Business of Esports
"That blew my mind over 7 years, so you hate seeing a sponsor that's new to the space or relatively new to the space that's backing out. But I don't think it speaks towards eSports because even with video games on the decline, we had Jake Phillips from stream hatchet on the show a couple of weeks ago suggesting that eSports viewership was the only thing that was maintaining course or speed, even though viewership on Twitch overall was down to around pre-pandemic levels. So I wouldn't blame eSports here. I think I would just blame the timing. But I'm curious Lindsay if you disagree. I think that you're definitely right about timing. I do also feel like we're entering a pretty big shift period for eSports versus gaming at large. I think BMW probably has a better opportunity in gaming at large than it might have with specific teams. And this isn't a fully fleshed out dot, but just advertising mechanisms are getting better in game advertising is getting better advertising these people who play racing games is getting better. There's all kinds of newer things that weren't necessarily even like pre-pandemic or just a year ago where I think that people may start to shift their advertising dollars towards because people are spending fewer and fewer advertising dollars. And that does concern me for the future of professional eSports and those kinds of sponsorships and partnerships. Like I said, that's not a fully fleshed out that and that's more of a 2023 trend to look out for kind of thing. I don't know how exactly what I think about BMW specifically in this sponsorship pulling out. But yeah, I don't know, Paula be curious to know what you think.

"News for 25% off. You sort of had a request there or maybe I made it into a request for the supply chain. I want to come back to green steel because that's something we've been talking a bit about. It seems like automakers can be the sort of thin edge of the wedge in catalyzing a green steel industry. They can help show that there's demand and that it's a viable approach. Do you have anything you'd like to share on the challenges? Because BMW has made some aggressive announcements, a very positive on trying to create a market for green steel and the automotive sector as have a few other automakers. Anything you want to comment on the journey on trying to get more green steel into cars? I mean, we try to put that into the contracts and we try to get the material as best as we can, but it's, I mean, those are long-term investments. So it might also take time and we are kind of dependent on the decarbonization of these industries. We can try to invest there in terms of paying maybe a little more per ton of steel. We can give an incentive by signaling that's what we are interested in, but still we are kind of dependent on what is happening in these sectors. So I think we need to work very closely together also with suppliers. That's why we are also investing in some future technologies where we think that is important for decarbonization. I think it's only possible by means of cooperation. We talked a lot about all these different areas that you're tackling. And I want to ask a question about factors are clearly shaping the way BMW mex cars. And the way you design cars and the way you do purchasing. Do they at some point start to influence where you make cars, not just the car you make, but where you locate a plant. Do the sustainability factors around, say, a decarbonized grid or access to clean green produced batteries nearby. Do they start to affect where you make the car? Or does that still get overwhelmed by decisions around tariffs or labor costs and those sorts of things? So localization strategies is a very complex issue and there are like a hundred things that you consider, but definitely sustainability is one aspect that we look into and that aspect is getting more important also in terms of getting independent from certain supplier countries and also of having a secure supply coming into your plans that is kind of diversified and not only dependent on one or two countries. So I think reducing this dependency is one of the big issues and that goes hand in hand usually with sustainability. So you're in a we could talk about many of these individual areas for quite a long time and we could have a whole conversation just about green steel or leather replacements or bioplastics and things. But we're going to run out of time. So I want to ask you sort of two closing questions. And one of them is around where we are on this journey. So if the journey towards a fully circular economy car is step ten on a ladder, where are we now? And where is BMW on that ladder? So I think you need to differentiate whether you're talking about CO2. I think there are very far on our way of decarbonizing and we also know how to do it. So I think there will be maybe a 7 or 8 because the way is clear. I think for circular, it's much more difficult because we depend on the material flow going into our cars. So we need the quality of the steel of the secondary still that we can put in our course that we can be sure that it meets our quality criteria. And we also need to have the quantity and have an assurance that we get that quantity. And that's actually the biggest issue when it comes to circular, we can decide a circular car design a circular car right now and we can also build it right now, but we can't put it in series because the material is just up there. And I think there we need a much more stable material flow. We need better sorting technologies at the moment, a car and air conditioner, a fridge, everything is put into one shredder. And what comes out of this redder is not a very clean material and as long as we have that kind of sorting technologies, it's going to be very hard to reach higher secondary material quotas for an industry that has the highest standards in terms of quality. So what goes out of our cars actually ends up in the cement and in the building industry? So it's going to be a steal for the building sector for the construction so that stone cycling. So when you want to close the loop in your own industry, we need a much better sorting technology. So we're further along on the CO2 journey, but some of the stuff around getting Second Life materials back into the vehicle is further back. A few rungs further down the ladder. Yes. So the last question I wanted to ask is just if there was one thing on this topic, you've been working on this for many, many years, and that perspective, those many years give you a different perspective. Is there one thing you'd think everyone should watch in the year ahead where you think it's going to, we're going to see a big movement or just one thing you think people should watch around circular economy. I don't think that there's one thing. I think what we see is that the movement is kind of everywhere. And it's very hard to predict where the change is going to be very fast in the next year, just to give you a story from our company that I actually experience in my everyday life is our continue. Which was extremely meat dominated. Some years ago, and now there's like out of four meals that you get there every day, three out of them usually or vegetarian. And it's not that it's a crazy chef that thinks we need to eat vegetarian, but the cues at the vegetarian lines are much, much longer actually. And that's something that has changed only two years. And it didn't come from above where anybody telling us to eat differently. So I think watch out for the change in your communities and what's going on there and keep your eyes open. I think you're going to see things that you would not have thought about. Well, thank you irina for a fascinating discussion we've covered everything from biodiversity and leather alternatives to green steel, part supply, managing this transition from an automaker perspective is challenging, but it's great to see groups stepping.

"Colin mccarrick, head of advanced transport at BNF, interviews IRENA fagge, head of climate strategy and circular economy at BMW group. They discuss what it takes to design a circular economy vehicle. IRENA is engaged with setting the strategic road map for making BMW's products sustainable. And she looks at how to reduce CO2, resource consumption, and biodiversity loss among other things. In Colin and IRENA's discussion today, they focus on several aspects of the automotive supply chain from green steel to high quality artificial leather, as well as localization of manufacturing and the associated emissions. As a reminder, BNF does not provide investment or strategy advice and we have a more complete disclaimer at the end of the show, and if you want to find out more about the NES summits head to about B and EF dot com forward slash summit, and also for those who are interested to hear more about how transportation is changing. Our next show will focus on NES electric vehicle outlook. And now let's listen to Collins conversation with IRENA from BMW. Hello everyone, and thank you to Iran for joining us on this. Thank you so much. So we hear a lot about electric vehicle adoption, but we all know that sustainability is more than just switching out the drive train. And so in your role at BMW, is there a kind of big three or big 5 set of things you think about beyond the drivetrain when we talk about a sustainable vehicle or a circular economy vehicle. So to be clear, the first thing you do obviously is to change the drive train. But when you change the drive train, this means that emissions go from your scope street downstream. So from the use phase, they go to your supply chain. So the emissions in the supply chain actually increase because of the hive CO2 footprint of the battery. So it becomes much more important to decarbonize your supply chain. It's the largest port that remains when you have an electric vehicle that means you look into what can you do with together with your supplier. You ask your supplier to use green energy, for example, that's the easiest part of it. Usually in countries where you have green energy, you put that in the contract and actually we have a new criteria for choosing a supplier based on CO2, for example. So they know that it's important to us when we look into to choose which supplier that we choose also on the criteria of CO2. You change gray heat to green heat, that's the next thing you do, and then it comes into processes like producing steel, try to get green steel. We try to get a steel made with hydrogen, for example. And then it gets more complicated and complex when it comes to going circular to introducing new materials into the car, for example, bio based materials and there you have a range of possibilities, for example, when you want to get rid of leather, which we already decided to do we are also looking into leather free options for BMW, and those options obviously should be much more attractive than a conventional plastic leather. So it should be an alternative that is Firebase that has an attractive appeal. There you can look into dozens of different materials just for leather. So imagine all the materials that you have in a car and you try to substitute them with other materials bio based materials. Then you need a totally new research into these materials and into how you can actually apply these materials. One of the things as you go through that list that I'm struck by is just how many new kind of fast moving things you have to be on top of, right? If we look back and the history of the automobile, yes there are these adjacent industries, but the touch points are relatively straightforward and now it feels like the boundary conditions of what you have to draw a circle around or a box around and say, I have to worry about this. That's gone way, way up, both in complexity and in sheer scope. How do you approach that in your group specifically and then just generally from an automobile industry perspective? So in my group, what we actually do is we set the goals for the company why it goes. And then these company-wide goals are translated into cars specific goals. So like every product line gets a CO2 target for the supply chain that they need to abide by. And then the product line together with purchasing, they look into what kind of materials can they buy in order to fulfill this target? How much hydrogen still do they need to buy? What do they do with the battery? How many secondary materials they need to use in order to reach that CO2 target. So it's actually an optimization task between engineering and purchasing in order to fulfill these targets. And what we also see at the moment is the secondary material targets actually, I mean, they buy into the CO2 target at the same time, but I think you need both because for some materials, it's just also important not only to look into CO2, but to go beyond to reduce your footprint also in terms of mining the less mining you need the battery dis, right? So even if it's not only for the CO2 footprint, you try to reduce your overall ecological footprint. When you set up the team that needs to deliver that, again, I think back to auto purchasing departments in the past, you didn't really have to understand how steel was made to buy a part. Do you have to change the sort of the people and the composition of the team in order to do this well now? Absolutely. So for example, we have a new team in purchasing right now that it only takes care of sustainability. They're looking to CO2. They look into all the ESG criteria, so they look into toxicity of materials. They look into social aspects of the supply chain. They look into biodiversity. So it's extremely broad, the knowledge that you need, and it's a totally different knowledge that usually someone who's in the purchasing department would have. Yeah, I imagine that attracts a very different group as well. So when you then think about all these different suppliers, so we've sort of expanded the scope of what you care about and have to think about and have to consider in the purchasing. Automakers have had typically very good visibility of their tier one suppliers. And maybe tier two, and then a little bit beyond there, it gets kind of fuzzier. But what you're talking about now is really trying to decarbonize all the way up the supply chain in some cases to the mine head for raw materials, how do you ensure that you have that visibility in those processes to say, look, it can't just be a black box above one of our suppliers. So how do you ensure that you have that visibility up the supply chain? Usually make a list of materials that you consider to be the most problematic ones. And those you try to control yourself directly. So either its own bias directly or we try to go there at least ourselves directly and look into what the minus really doing. It's basically categorized in terms of how dangerous that material is and how much do you really need to look into it yourself because otherwise you can't rely on it. Safely.

You're going to design my podcast room, my sounder. Yeah, it sounds like a good trip to me. I'm down for that for sure. All right, so some more car news. So PMW unveiled their XM concept. It's their first stand-alone M car since the M1. It's a hybrid SUV. It's their top of the line. Full size, like it's a big SUV and I don't know what's going on with BMW, but they just continue to beat their vehicles for the ugly stick. And I just don't understand why. Who's designing it? The big grill, the big buck tooth grill. That was coming out. Like it's been out for a few years now. People have spoken up about it. I mean, maybe I'm wrong. Maybe it's translating to sales. Maybe this is a question for Alistair at Edmunds like pull the sales data and say, what's going on? I don't see how. Certainly, everyone that drives the cars are saying, it's still on par to BMW. They perform great. The M4 is because you can't see the growth from the driver's seat. Yeah. And I don't know. This SUV is just, I don't know, for me, it's just out of control. The design of this thing is, I don't know, it's too over the top. It's got a lot of silliness to it. And I thought we'd tried this at one point when we started doing the really, really sharp edges on cars. And I think we kind of figured out we always kind of like the beautiful curves of some of the 60s European cars and I always felt like when the Alfa Romeo. I forgot the letter now I can't believe the letter the 8 the little two door coupe front engine you know it wasn't the best performing car. But just a curvy fenders and beautiful lines to it and it's beautiful. Even the fisker karma, like when the fisker came out had haunches onto the C 8, the Al thank you, Chris. 8 C they did the four, right? The four C was the little one, and I had some curves on it, but I thought the 8 C was gorgeous. You mean the little herb. So the four C was the little one. And the 8 C was bigger, but not that much bigger. And that's just how he's had some really pretty lines to it. And then Cadillac came out with like this CTS-V. And it had some very, very sharp lines, especially the two door coupe. It had kind of a beautiful big kind of like a B two bomber, I think I'm fine. This is the B two bomber. And the other fighter, very kind of angular, sharp edges. And then we kind of think if you see one of those vehicles, you know exactly what it is. I mean, I think it's a beautiful little car. It's a quirky looking car, but it's a badass car. It is. And the wagon, by the way, that generation CTS-V wagon. In wagon form, it's more of a timeless design. It's very cool. It's gonna end up in museums as a design piece. On the Peterson. But anyway, BMW is pushing the envelope, if you will, on the design of this XM, but, of course, you start reading about it. And you're like, oh, it's a V8. Probably a V8 turbo with hybrid technology. 740 horsepower 738 pound feet of torque. Up to about 30 miles on electric only. In EV mode, which again is kind of below the threshold that I would like. I think like 50 miles is kind of the sweet spot. It just, I don't know, it just 50 miles like we've had this discussion with Adam as well. And so Adam drives the Lincoln aviator hybrid. And it'll do like 19 or 20 or 21 miles, something like that. What's the point? Well, the point is it shifts on and off. So the overall improvement in MPG is shared with that battery. But his thought was like, yeah, but when I'm staying and when I'm at the house in locking out and it's only, you know, it's like it's not quite there to do the trip there and back, you know, on the 19 miles it needs about 40 50 would be nice because it's about a 30 mile round trip. But he's been trying it out. He's been plugging in the thing every night. He's been going home and what he's settled in. He plugs it in. He gets his 20 miles range. And then he's was looking at what it does to the overall fuel economy, or the overall range and fuel economy of the vehicle as he's driving and commuting. And it does help. It does help. What he did was he was plugging it into the normal one ten outlet, because that's what was convenient. And Lynette has a Tesla in the garage. And then I think we ended up finding he found an adapter plug. It's like an 18 inch long, you know, pigtail plug. It plugs into the Tesla charger and then it plugs into his car. It makes the Tesla charger. The universal two 40 plug that you'd find in a shopping mall or.

Ev's that will go longer than six hundred kilometers. That's three hundred seventy miles or the publication says that drivers will rely on the charging infrastructure rather than having a big battery according to inside while nearly four hundred miles of range is a solid estimate for any heavy produced today at the top end of the market. Interesting the bmw is they've got no intention of striving for more which car writes the bmw. I full project leader. David sarafina severi. Sania in bmw. So obviously he's allowed to speak to the media he's given this interview. He says they won't be doing anything. Like targeting a range of more than three hundred and seventy miles. Six hundred case he said and i quote one. Thousand kilometers of range is not a target. We have without fully electric cars. We are aiming for six hundred kilometers of driving range for fully electric cars and one hundred kilometers without plugging hybrids in everyday driving. For example we don't think a range of six hundred kilometers. We'll be suitable for a bmw. I three as an urban car but when it comes to the bmw x. or i four. We think around six hundred kilometers is a very customer friendly solution and quite interesting isn't it. It's not old debate over if we have enough charges and if the car's charged quick enough and a lot of new. Bmw's coming out at charging it. You know one. Twenty-one fifty two hundred kilowatt charging speed if we have enough inch infrastructure now yes. Electricity is everywhere but high-voltage stuff isn't everywhere but if we have enough infrastructure why do you want to carry around battery. Aka white aka expense aka resources. Why carry that around when you just going twenty miles to work and back every day and yet you wanna battery big enough and the khun charge fast enough to allow you to road trip comfortably. So it's not an inconvenience and already say where. Bmw coming from with this. I'm surprised if it is that corporate policy that they will hang the hats on. I'm surprised he was allowed to say that.

"We know that's bullshit right. This whole thing is a a sieve cash distribution vehicle trying to get the money to the players right. That's that's all. Yeah that's what they're trying to do and and they got some great action this week along the way which is like all we can ask for his fan so it's hard to sit here and really critique it after a great great you know day that we had and i'm in the final the tour championship format. I think i love it. It's a problem at all. yeah. I'm like it's yeah it's like there should be. My my argument would be if you wanna make the regular season more than truly make it feel like the playoffs. Then give the guys make these three weeks one. Big and there's there's a cut so so next year is what memphis memphis and then bmw in wilmington and then tour championship. And so you do you do it with a cut but you do it with you. Seat it based on the regular season and and and you make the regular season means something going back to roms comments. Now he's like. hey. I don't think it's right that somebody can parachute in play really well two out of three weeks in the playoffs and win this thing which you can argue other way of that but you can kind of get a kind of do the best of both worlds. If you said all right your number one coming in the fedex cup playoffs. After the regular season you strengthen wyndham like if a guy is on the edge or there's a close close race there then you guys actually vying for seeding going into the playoffs instead of just wiping the slate totally clean.

"The tournament. This weekend at gives valley the bmw championship. But before we get to tyler and then we must give you eli all right so my i guess loan bat but it's there's a couple of them with it the player. I'm betting on this weekend this week. We're a maccarone jimmy. Mcilroy over about rivers plus twenty five hundred back oi top ten. Well that's each way to rivers and rory top ten at plus two hundred look at the way he's played over the last twelve rounds he's third degreen third in ball striking fourth in off the sea. The approach could be a little better just outside the top twenty obviously around the green putting especially putting below the top forty where he ranks right now. So that's concerning but again putting out really metric you will carry over week to week. You've finished a little bit over the weekend. At the northern trust shooting seventy and a sixty six. So i i hope that he bounces back a little bit just with the putter and again. If if he's bombs away at this golf course joe worked out at least two catan. Keep things within the top ten so mcelroy for me outright and top ten okay so rory mcilroy eli on the roaring train. James mazzola was on the show yesterday. He also likes rory spoiler alert. I probably royal little villa. Give you my golf. That's momentarily but we gotta find out here. What let's let's hold cannon tyler here rick vicks ready to come on big trucks.

I wouldn't be able to vic pop on here. Tell us what you like. This weekend at the bmw copello. Thank you for the great intro there. Nick and i got six guys that i hit with some outright s- I i took bryson. You can get them at plus two thousand right now that rivers. Call me a sucker but again. He had a volatile week last week. But this is going to be a bombers course. He's i in driving distance. Person strokes games off the tee he. He's just too good to pass up at these odds so grab. I grabbed him at twenty. Two to one. I still recommend grabbing him. A twenty two one there and then brooks tepco twenty five to one right now. He has six top six finishes over his last twelve starts. He's always there when the big dogs play and his metrics fit perfectly for this course as well so those are the guys on the upper side. And then i got four longshots where you guys scotty shuffler. Plus three thousand russell henley plus sixty five hundred walking neiman plus six thousand and jason coke racket plus eight thousand out of that group. I love neiman. This week i.

Typically come from like that fifty or lower range and you know even female being inflated you know he has all the talent in the world. I guess talent of any of those guys in the top of the market so i you know as long as i'm gonna go. I'm not gonna jump in anywhere but we're looking for you. Know maybe some guys maxine our range of if you know hall keys you can win. A golf tournament does not the for. That's the only thing he's never went on tour but he's the same kinda guy see now and some both sukkur. He's as long as his earned super. Well if you're giving me some slow From so green. It's going to help with his putting if anything is possible. Pocket he winning a non far is possible. I can see behind my race. I always you know. Don't check the box because he's never ability to win. Okay he's the guy that i'll have a little bit slow even just a top center and you wanna go down a little further down the word cameron. Golly you're gonna get him at a top pricing plus three hundred plus you hundred not probably to win. But a long shot to be able to compete. He was right there You know i'd be in on the monday finish. Plays absolutely terrible. so he's got completely forgotten. We didn't get any shot. But he's got about twenty bet and who could sneak in there must about quite well enough to win But the guy wants from exposure to a couple more questions here at the great james mazzola on twitter at j. j. d. of the four profit. Podcast acosta's cody decker. You better you bet that q. L. on a tuesday jayme as what about some head to head matchups. You're eyeing for this weekend at the bmw. Yeah you know. I think we're last week. I was a little bit of a wait and see on gross. And i i just don't think he's into it. What monday round. He completely gave up and he looked like he didn't wanna be there. He's fifteen fifteen to seventeen going into the going into this week. Which is pretty far back without a win at the it's really compete for the final phase cup championship. So i'm just a full on. Bros it just so happens. He's not two thousand. I mentioned prior embracing glory. So you're probably not anywhere from my name is look at teams muslim thirty guys. I really do like those through this week and bros just seem to have that. I don't give heck and going on anymore. So he's been it's not a major right so we're gonna do the full on brucie and the other guy i just. I really don't understand what what is. His name is like right now. Is dustin johnson missing. The cut last week lost jobs approach. off the tee which is insane. Future t- and then around the greens. He did his drivers so that account or a little bit off the team but he was three when he hits the through this as far most the field so has missed. Tubas last three cuts including a three open. This guy just seems like he's just ready for this season to get over with how that season and start fresh next year. So i'm going to be fading him with a couple of guys and i loved and zander and work our very consistent golfers. So yeah that's what we like to see In those term to head guys who have that high floor against egypt who you know. Clearly we saw. We saw the floor last week missing to cut.

"Jecklin hide. A lot of these golfers were this year like destiny. Make sense like max homeless thirtieth like what was the last he played good at the genesis. Do you think he got the full five hundred points when the team with cancer just two fifty split split it. I think you should split it actually. I think that's fair. Yeah do do they do that or they. I think they got. I mean he's got a thousand points the full five hundred. That's that's kind of a little shaky. But i mean look at this do nazon. Eighteenth like a good man. He's playing fine females. And i now look at it fucking patrick kelly with steak win at twenty three hundred boo. I want him to flame out this weekend. Well next week. I'll come beautiful. Mind how i read you. The fax cup playoffs Manifesto next week. It's it's evolved actually by like a different angle shot. That i didn't like i can't fix that this year. We'll talk about next thing. We'll save when i start randomly. How terrible this format is to champion about big joke. it is. That's how they weren't but until then let's up about the bmw case valley golf club so so the northern trust that was alternating between boston. New york city. Now's gonna go over to memphis permanently. This one though is still going to rotate around the country. The bmw typically have been kind of mid western focus like its allies chicago clubs gotha colorado couple times. I think a couple of michigan maybe. And then they've gone around the maryland area too and this one's in maryland outside baltimore and owings mills at kay's valley golf clubs so it opened in nineteen ninety-one. It's a tom fazio. And it's it's strange like for years. Like the only fazio golf courses on the pga tour were the corrales went to canada and quail hollow and tozzi like he's made like courses. Yeah brazilian courses but only to a now this year. This'll be the sixth time. We've gone on five zero design. Like i know if you like like he must've just weasel his way in after all these one offs of events that got canceled. The canadian cancel all. Why don't you come down to the palmetto. All the cj cup of can't go to can't go to korea shadow creek by the way both of those courses fucking awesome. They're awesome because the kasumigaseki very of this and then actually this year. Cj cubs go to another fazio in las vegas so he just cleaning up so this will be the sixth time this year. They were played at a fazio. So listen like like foss a lot of designs. it's got its ups and downs ups. I i mean case. Valley is just an immaculate condition. I mean it. Seems like all the private tom fazio courses that they plan the pga tour. They're great like shadow creek. I mean just luxurious like great pristine conditions quayle house the same way kasumigaseki that was in grave condition and caves valleys. No exception and it's got six hundred members. They all got deep pockets. It's bent grass. Greens bent grass fairways. Lush ri- gra ryegrass rough. The greens grow pretty fast. They're pretty undulated to like. This is going to be an all world like playing surface for these guys so so question about that. I think the one difference though is some of the land like one of the crista fasel is. He tends to take a piece property where there shouldn't be a golf course and i guys it turns it into it so like like shower chris example. That's a desert wasteland. A turn into this like you know..

Sarah Turney of 'Voices for Justice' on Ethics in True Crime Podcasting
"It was groups gathering to watch people burned at the stake during the salem witch trials or millions of people watching making a murderer on net flicks. We're drawn to these stories and everyone has their own reasons. Why maybe it's pure curiosity. Maybe you want to learn something from these experiences. You can avoid them yourself. Maybe one help or maybe you just how big this genre is and want to cash in. I'm not saying. I think it's right or ethical but this is and has been our reality for centuries we may think we've evolved past it but we really haven't now believe it or not. I really don't care about your intentions in this space because after trying to bet trying my best to convert people away from the dark side if you will. I learned the intentions are not something i can change if you can hear my story if you can see other families of victims on the internet begging for help and you don't care that something inside of you that i will not be able to change today but the thing with intentions is you may feel like they're this deep dark secret inside of you but they will come to the surface so no matter your intentions with true crime content. You you make just remember that a good deal of your audience will most likely see right through your work to those intentions in. My advice is to respect your audience by being honest with them. Are you doing tour for a show. Just you can buy a new car awesome. Let your audience know that. I bet most of them will be thrilled for you. What they will be thrilled about is if you say that you're in this to help the victims and the families but then you only help yourself and before you know it. You're on instagram with your new. Bmw they're gonna see right through that now. A great way to avoid all this headache is to actually just have good intentions with your work. That doesn't mean you have to work yourself to the bone and donate every dollar to charity. That's not what i'm saying. What i'm saying is that if you don't have good intentions in this space be ready for a lot of people to call you out on

"That topic our podcast very high level. So i think they're day wanna go into in a similar direct. Yeah definitely it's for us. It's a maya zone and and we wanna keep getting better and go one step further even some eighty ep vague sites. It avai excites able comes next too much. I think it's something that almost any brand oversee your competitors are going. Be so keenum. What you're dying but if anyone listening. I think it's something any brand can. can take landings from the fact that you guys have created something fictional from scratch and redefined branded content in the price. I think we've seen the value of brandi content increase in our industry especially the last couple of years and that going from like no long form series. Two people are to be a little bit more creative with that. Making this takes it to the next level. So i'd love to see more runs exploring that definitely up to completely agree aviv. There and then talk more. Generally as suppose about the future of stories have input brands and inside to this of i think for evil agree in social media. We've seen a lot of debate around storytelling. And how you tell stories because of the limitations of having to get the attention really fast and i to get the point across i guess in the podcast space. It's completely different. Because you can build a world more and take that more traditional reu i mean what do you think is going to be. The future storytelling for brands. And now it's quite big. Question believed the huge potential in audio storytelling. And then i think the next era will to include the the audience interactivity. And of course we've been watching snatch yeah sounds just saying and we've been talking about shaping your own kind of story young not quite there yet. Think voice definitely issues thing for for the proconsul future for bmw as a brand. Actually we have a quite long history of storytelling so He made movies. And the i don't know everything and We clearly continuing this past and exploring new innovative formats such as an audio voice games. I think if you you just have to exploit the possibilities of each channel what is possible and really understand The target will on channel. And what really brings added value and storytelling is.
"bmw" Discussed on Social Minds - Social Media Marketing Answered
"We'll speaking about going. On revenue metrics and finding value in time spent with bronze working futurists to predict the future of mobility and the untucked potential audio bay. Storytelling obviously bmw. As brands. begun for over one hundred years and it would have been easy very much for you know. This comes in content to finish to focus on the past and the style. Everything you've done Over that time why was it so important to focus on the future and look ahead and create not just of predict division but gray new vision. Yeah that's a good an important question actually so our ceo for example. He said that nap upcoming ten years. The automotive industry will change more than in the past one hundred years so there's a lot going on electrification to the digitisation automation just to name a few topics. So this is exciting and yes future optimistic brand. We love to look ahead and Bmw has a great heritage of course and it should be considered an on it. We learned a lot that i think in those days. It's more important to focus on the future and what lies ahead. Trust play into that. Because i've found listening to this podcast gave me a great deal of trust in the front. That bmw knows where things that go in. I guess on consumer point of view. It's that trust in the brand. That has the answers that you don't actually have the question in a way so cool about it this that we don't say actual products because even bmw. Nobody has accrue what's for sure what's going on in this distant future. But of course their assumptions and we've been working together closely with experts from the bmw site. And they just gave some input about the future of mobility for example the permanent availability of some sort of mobility and. That's what you also have end. The story of justice thinks about getting into a car It is and all she goes and she knows how to deviate from the stop because super intuitive and oggi's taught somehow phones the way into the story but it's not like subtle. Now i love. I love listening to you. Describe it in that much detail. Because the i mentioned the attention to detail it's got into. It is really really special when you m of reason. Justified little elements like that like it's so easy to use itself speaks back to how to bmw products. Aw this like these tiny little value moments where the audience is out. She getting out of it and that the brand is getting out of it. But what i'm getting at here. Is these metrics. I guess you'd call them on directly measurable One of the reasons. Why i think a lot of friends struggled for awhile with podcasting in general and especially with a unique fictional format like this. That doesn't talk about the products constantly and then not by inclined to make something that's not going to make the money in a way that they can see straight away so i'm interested to know when you guys were putting hip novelist together. In your opinion what was the goal of what. What do you think the main. Kpi of a branded. Podcast should be. i personally. Think that Brands should focus on the target group. And what really brings added value to them in the right time the right situation.
