"Everyone Jimbo Han in show Michael Harrison is frequent guests with jamming with me and Philadelphia DOM Giordano sitting in for Jim bohannon The editor and publisher of talkers magazine among other things but he has a wide scope of interests that sort of platform through talk radio into all kinds of things and we're near the end of the year at least any shows I'll be doing for Jim So Michael's witness tonight to talk about some of the biggest stories that filled her through in most talked about people and talk radio But beyond that the major trends and transitions that may be taking place now headed into the future Michael welcome back to the Jim bohannon show Oh it's great to be with you Tom Thank you for having me on And I was thinking as you were talking that one of the wonderful things about talk radio and especially for guys like you and me and Jim who've been in it for a very long time and are still on the leading edge but have great roots in its heritage Is that talk radio offers its participants and its listeners the opportunity to talk about everything Because everything's connected And one of the things with inexperienced talk show hosts is when you're on three hours a day four hours a day 5 days a week You start to weird thin if you don't have a lot of life experience and interests beyond just the talking points of the day Exactly And people from the outside they may hear a few hosts who are centered in just politics politics politics every decimal and symbol But for a long time you've talked about other aspects of this but let's first start with the biggest stories through talk radio then talk about some of the things that are coming up at the end of this year I would say the passing of Rush Limbaugh is probably the biggest story but what do you say this year Well it's certainly the number one story is COVID And it was the number one story last year And it might be the number one story next year And COVID is an era It's not just a year It's not just a story It's an era that we're living through and we have no idea how long it's going to go But once I remember people asking me how long do you think this pandemic is going to last And I said three months four months at the most couldn't imagine that it would rip through our society and our times like a tornado And just change everything I mean so many changes and it became politicized So it had a double whammy on the radio as a story The other story obviously is the aftermath of the election The new Biden administration and the economy during the age of the pandemic So the economy has been a gigantic stories matter of fact this week the economy is being talked about even more than COVID The whole mansion thing and the build back better vote or non vote crazy stuff And then of course there's just the partisan politics January 6 That and the investigation And Donald Trump looms over the year as a major political figure even though he's out of office Haven't seen that in a presidency not in my lifetime where the outgoing president remained like the leader of the opposition and I guess Stevenson was that way in the 50s but hardly hardly like Trump And so it's been a very very interesting time for politics for the health situation And the technology that has come out of the pandemic really is catapulting us into the future Well talk show host though at least the ones I talk with that I like they're looking for and I know I'm looking for and I know in your role you're looking to for stories that are not just COVID every day or Trump or related to that that break through are there any things that have any legs or are they We just have to keep scouring for these interesting things that I mean I did a thing Michael recently on national monuments here on the bohannon show The last time I was on not this week about who our national monuments too and people I got more emails on that because they were trying to get some of the lesser ones in the top ten of who we put monuments up to Stuff like that just intrigues me the flow and where does it go What have you found this year And you do a show the rap each week in which you take a look at the big issues of the week But we're looking for these things that just engage all of us and this community of talk radio not just the talking point stuff Yeah in other words the crime and the violence the race relations the immigration issue of the climate change How social media is destroying our minds We have no security no privacy and then of course there's China and Russia and North Korea How is that China China I like talking about though for the reason is I think talk radio is one of the forces that gets it how severe of a challenge China is and you don't hear that in the rest of the media often enough I think you're right You don't hear it often enough But I think that's changing I think that over the past three years that we've been tracking this remember I tracked the subjects the way billboard magazine tracks the record hits That's right And China is definitely in the forefront now because people are worried about what China is going to mean to their economics their personal per strings they're worried about what China means to the privacy issue because of their surveillance They're worried about the militarism of China that still is a problem although we're entering an era where cyber war will replace military war I think that that's one of the major changes that we have to get used to happening I mean it's like we don't think that way We still think in terms of bombing and soldiers shooting each other and we've certainly seen enough of that in the Middle East But the fact of the matter is in terms of our relationship with China it's all about artificial intelligence It's all about cyber war It's all about the Internet And spying And controlling things Because if you control artificial intelligence and you control the digital era well you can have a whole army that's coming against you suddenly going to complete this right without a doubt And that brings me to one of your interests and what you do every day and your own personal interest involves technologies social media moving forward What's some of the major trends at the end of the year you see bleeding into 2022 or beyond I think that the James Webb.

I think you've got a whole lot of credentials there that i definitely can't touch and that's okay. I don't wanna be a financial financial guru for anybody but One of the things. I didn't read out. Is you say that the secret year longevity is asking questions at other other advisers. don't ask. Can you tell the listeners. A little bit about how you figured out what those questions are and what they might be. You know i. It's a great question that i don't think it's necessarily that. I know the questions that aren't asked. It's more that. I feel like i listen better and it's not about me. It's about them. And there's one designation that i used to tell people that i have. I used to do seminars years ago. You know i was a talk. Show host in a certified financial planner a cfp and a d a d and they'd go what's the ad i said. Well that's a dad of a six year old and learned more about communications from her than in any conference or anywhere industry publications ever and she's the one who opened my eyes really to understanding. The question is necessarily the question. There are so many different layers. And you know. I may hear what you are saying but it may not be what you're really asking so i tend to just sort of repeat back what i think i heard and then we sort of go from there I also think in our industry specifically I think our industry has done it wrong. A lot when it comes to either training advisors or educating consumers When it comes to training the advisor to many advisors look at their clients as cash cows. You know they come on in. Oh boy how. Much of a commission can i make much revenue. Am i going to generate. And that's you know that's really not why they're coming to us. They're coming to us for guidance. For help for council and you know my business model is more about counseling and getting paid a fee for doing that than it is about selling products and i think therein lies also an underlying problem. We have in our industry that too many consumers don't trust us don't like the way that we communicate and you know it it speaks to You know a third of my clients are suddenly single women. Because i don't talk to them. In the usual financial jargon or like are male dominated industry does to women. You can't do that. There's no connection. So i think it's really important for us to figure out how to have proper communications out a listen well and then once you start listening then you can start to find the questions that as i say so. Many of my other peers do not ask..

Is pushing officials in Montgomery County to allow indoor dining to resume now that other jurisdictions air loosening restrictions. Marshall, Western with the restaurant Association of Maryland, says restaurants are part of the solution. Not the problem.

"To endure dining may feel like a financial necessity for many restaurant workers and owners. The public safety concerns remain. A CDC study from mid September found that adults who tested positive for covert 19 whereabout twice is likely to have dined at a restaurant in those who tested negative. Study did not. I should note say whether those respondents were more likely to have dined indoors here with me to discuss. All of this is Kush. Boucha Food and Wine magazines, restaurant editor Thanks for being here. Cushman. Thanks for having me and we also have Carlos, Free US food editor for the Miami Herald, either Carlos Hey, Matt. So we were just talking about Florida, Carlos. So, as we noted, Florida governor descent is now allowing restaurants and bars to operate at full capacity. How was this announcement received Carlos? Pretty much with a lot of shock from restaurant owners. It's AH, announcement came down. It was signed after 4 P.m. on a Friday of couple hours before the Miami Heat were to play in a playoff game. And three hours later, Theo Nerva of Miami based restaurant chain walked into one of his 24 restaurants and saw people standing shoulder to shoulder and his his in his words. Said it was scary. Wow. Was this related to the heat playing the Lakers that the governor wanted to make sure that bars were will take advantage of people coming in tow? Watch the games? I don't know This was that this when they're playing the Celtics and I actually restaurants, a couple guys, including a manager, who spoke to me off the record said, You know, we're getting this news three hours before this huge game where people are, you know are potentially going. Want to go out. And all of a sudden we have these the's no rules. And there was a search. Yeah. I was gonna say there's a stretch of about 30 hours from when Miami dates said that it had some ideas about adjusting those rules. They had to ask the state of Florida toe less to have less than 100% capacity. So in those 30 hours, restaurants weren't sure what to do. And there was confusion. The road, South Florida Are there any safety protocols that the governor is implementing as he moves the restaurants to full capacity? I mean, he says that safety measures remain in place, whatever those were before, But he also said that he was he was stopping municipalities from finding for not wearing masks. But all sense he's saying that any mask rules have no teeth anymore, although Miami Dade County so that they do intend Broward County to said that they do intend on on still writing tickets, and you know whenever the emergency order is Sending those finds out, but it seems like such a It's taken the teeth out of that. What was what was once Ah law. Yeah. Cushman. This is very different from New York. How is indoor dining being rolled out in New York City? Is a few more rules. Thankfully, I think it's still a pretty dangerous prospect. But you know, 25% capacities at least 6 ft. Between tables, no seats at the bar. You know restaurants close of midnight, each vac systems and the air purifiers need to be upgraded. And they're doing temperature checks and recording contacted Go, actually, for diners of that the city's contact tracers and get in touch with people if they need to. What are you hearing from restaurant workers in New York about starting back up? Are they happy to be back a work and working more hours or they freaked out about the safety situation. Yeah. I think most of them are more freaked out than anything else. You know? Ultimately, a lot of the diners are have incredible sense of entitlement is actually the reports. I'm hearing the most that you know, they get really angry when you ask them to wear masks. When they get up to go to the bathroom, you know, use anything like that. They're not being very well. I mean, obviously being is ah, very questionable in terrible system, in my opinion, But it is the current system in people are being less than ever when he should be tipping, you know, 30%, at least for people taking, you know, risks with their lives to serve you this like Margarita? You are that week times they're writing like terrible yelp reviews I've heard completes from servers where you know customers have threatened to call the cops before on the restaurant. They're, you know, lashing and their face like when they're asked to do anything, you know, hearing things like all we can't wait for you guys to, like, Shut down in, like, six months because of thes rules. So I've been out to get a couple of times, but I've only sat outside are are you Are you personally comfortable returning to endure dining? Are you going to go eat inside? Not at all, like 100%, No. Which is it's crazy. You know, my job very much depends on restaurants. It's centered on restaurants on. I'm not comfortable whatsoever. I just don't think I can, you know, consciously risk someone else's life. If I'm even willing to risk my own, which I'm also not I don't know why people are pretending this pandemic is over. It's far from you know, you're still seeing the number of cases rise even in New York City, which has taken AH lot of precautions. Andi cases are continuing, you know again to search right now, so What about you? Carlos? Are you comfortable? Go need inside in Miami right now. I haven't dined inside of restaurant in six months and I don't have plans to do it at any tension. You've been eating outside and how How's that going I'm doing. I'm doing mostly takeout. Mostly, I've been I've been ordering from a lot of different places trying to stay on top of what different restaurants are doing what they're pivoting to try to stay. Relevant to stay in business. But you know, I'm not. I think they they don't want to put people at risk and and I don't want to put myself at risk. And do you agree with Krishna that we need to be tipping? Mohr, You have a recommendation on how much we should be tipping servers. Yeah, I mean, like you said Cushman's right. Tipping is the worst system that we have for paying people. And I mean, I think if you're not paying, ifyou're not tipping 25% on anything, especially now. I think you're doing a disservice to the people who are putting themselves in danger for you. We have to take a quick break, but we'll have more on the return of endure dining in just a moment. This is the take away way. Want you to be part of the takeaways.

"That as part of their language arts curriculum. So there are a whole host of different ways. Her in events can kind of feed into your other subjects on your other disciplines in your home school but I think one current events are a critical part of your day. Definitely morning time is a wonderful place for them into before you kind of pick a resource. There are so many resources out there that make it easy for Fremont's. Definitely. Just kind of think about your family what your kids are interested in what what kind of time you have right or you busy? Are you pressed for time? Do you have the time to the kind of sit around and read a lengthy article from the Atlantic another news magazine and then and then and then pick your source? Yeah. Okay. So this was the home school current events quickstart guide from Silverdale Press, and we're gonNA link to this in the show notes and just to let you guys know it has like some more of the reasons that Jill talked about today why study current events the steps forgetting started? Five engaging questions to ask while you're studying current events and then the resources that Jill told us about just a few minutes ago plus more because there are ten resources in total. So you're going to want to go download that Jill. Let me ask you one last question before we kind of wrap it up. If you if you're sitting in the morning time situation and you have multiple age kids, you've got kind of your whole family there in a wide spread of ages. How do you tackle some of these difficult current event conversations with your kids in an age appropriate way? Do you have any guidelines? Yeah that's a good question. I do have a few things to think about. You know it's always it's never easy for parents to talk to their kids about sensitive topics that and of course you know I do. I do scan the newspaper. There's a really sensitive topic. I'M NOT GONNA set it out for my kids to kind of flip through that day if there's something disturbing on the front cover, but you know it's They. Even, if you're watching CNN ten or clicking on the BBC, sensitive topics will inevitably come up. But again, this is a great in your home school day. It's better to talk about it here than your kids kind of Hash it out for themselves elsewhere. But studying current events with different ages. So sensitive events I would first of all, you know I would just the first thing I would tell parents to use their wisdom and pray about it. Right. If if there is something that comes up in your and your child has some really difficult questions that's always a good first step and another to by have is too. When you're studying current events and there's a sensitive topic or disturbing topic or unpleasant topic, you know the fact. Is You know unpleasantness than inappropriateness stems from the fact that we live in a fallen world. So always start. West. Scripture. Nothing there is nothing new under the Sun Right. Every topic that you could imagine that is you know disturbing to us today. is in the Bible somewhere I would venture to guess that's maybe that's me. That's a pretty broad statement, but it is. You know it's a great time to kind of learn about human nature to understand that this is a lot of the things that we're seeing kind of our consequences of the fall. So those are my first two suggestions might third suggestion is to really kind of if there is a sensitive topic that comes up and. You WanNa talk about it with your with your with your kid. One thing you could do is you know. Read an article about it If it's really sensitive center kit, you're younger kids to the other room to color with crayons or something but one thing that I have. Kind of been suggesting to parents whenever something whenever there is something kind of disturbing in the news to know parable article with me classic text that addresses the topic. So if it's something like you know racism eat talk. Talk about the current event read the article. Also. One thing that you could do to make it a little less disturbing is to kind of an even if you wanted to include your little kids here, pair it with classic like. The Narrative A. The narrative of the life of Frederick Douglas, for example or John F, Kennedy's nineteen, sixty three address to Congress on a civil rights bill that he was about to propose it's I, forget the name of the address, but it's a something like bat is a. Pairing kind of an article with a classic taxed on the subject may be one way to kind of help your kids to on think about an issue without necessarily engaging in their the really disturbing stuff Okay. So you know I mean I wish I could think of a great way to kind of avoid sensitive topics but the fact is that they'll probably come up and it's important that we as parents we we do have a plan for dealing with them that we think a little bit about how we're gonNA handle them before. But always you know cray about it start with scripture and try to pair your articles. With some classic classic texts to give give your students broader context for maybe understanding them Oh awesome. Some really, really great.

Where did you go for this one? Oh man that was a lot. I think that was six cities L. A. L. A. Philly New Orleans. Oh my God. Where did I go? I mean you literally can't remember yeah I it was like four to five cities. I guess my first question is I think a lot of fans of yours. WanNa know like how do you end up as a staff dog for at a food magazine like whenever someone asked me about this is I'm the worst possible personnel asked because it's purely luck and circumstance stance and my only goal and still the only like hey just don't get fired and spend closing up on your six and I still get asked to come back every day and there were definitely moments early on we're Alex pollick grocer artificial photo department critic Blake. I'M GONNA kill Lau a huge mistake so you start off as an intern turn years ago yeah. That's my freshman year of college. I just wanted to do something with my life and not just go home for the summer to California and you know Oh bummer and my parents house so I wanted to find an internship and I've always had a fascination with the magazine world apply too much internships. Nobody got got back to me in like a week. Before summer started. I saw a posting for esquire magazine to be a fashion closet intern. Oh and I was like that sounds cool. That sounds way out of my reach. I am hugely under qualified for that but I'M GONNA shoot my shot and Michael Steph. who was the fashion assistant at the time got back to me? He's like when can you come in based on what oh it. Did you have background. It was the most underqualified letter ever. It was basically hey. Here's my resume. I was a lifeguard in high school. I was a high school tutor and I intern at the State House in Massachusetts in politics nothing related to magazines but I really love menswear and here's like my favorite menswear blogs and here's my favorite brands brand's. I like fashion. I can work hard and he got back to me. Can I just say that. I am a lot of times when I talked to young people who are just out of college in their writing you you know letters to inquire about a job and they read like they're written by a law firm. I'm always like learning be yourself. Be passionate sort of expose yourself so to speak but that's what's GonNa grab some somebody's attention one hundred. I think the way I showed her. The letter wasn't like the formerly hi my name's dogs home. Hey My name's Alex. I'm really excited about this. I know him not meant for this Gig but I will do whatever it takes gap and so forth and they took a chance on me and that kind of was my segue into the New York City magazine publishing world and it turns out having square on your resume. Just opens opens up a lot of doors but it was great. It was just my eighteen years old. I didn't get paid but I got to see how magazines work I've got to be on fashion shoots Justin Timberlake Lake and Ryan Gosling and wow poll like hold fourteen thousand dollar jackets and look it Nick Sullivan whose whose the editor in chief at the time Grainger David David David grange just like talk shop and like this is amazing. This is legendary and that made me really WANNA stick with it yeah very recall okay so internship at esquire. How then does that lead you to be a so after that? I was convinced that I wanted to stay in publishing. Look fashion. menswear ended up at Nylon guys Juku for a little bit complex four pins so I was very very much in that circuit as an intern just doing minimal intern work but after a couple of years I was just like this is not really what's my angle here. I don't WANNA be stylus. I don't WanNa be a fashion writer. The idea of being a photographer and fashion was just you know. I didn't even sit down. That's not going to happen so after this is my third yes approaching my third year of college. I A Internet a bunch of or apply uh-huh bunch of other internships again. Nobody got back to me. Despite actually this I'm being off and having a lot of magazines in Monroe oster I applied to like yeah a a couple of mags won't be noted but they're they're. They're okay. They just get back. I mean I saw a posting for bone apetite photo internship and I was like I know nothing nothing about food. I like pictures. I took photo classes in high school and college. So how active a photographer were you at this point. It's like I'm not active. I don't know I took a lot of fissures in high school. I had my own flicker account. I you were you were you were definitely interested. We're sitting at least and I took pictures of the school paper and stuff like that. I I was a you know an avid hobbyist as major so do you did you come in an interview like what God you the job ultimately so I went in again. It's always like a last minute. Call in showed up from Boston and I met with Jake. Ramoser are former photo assistant and he he gave me a talk. Hey so turn yeah. It looks like you've worked a lot of magazines. you have zero photo experience and you have zero food experience so you're pretty underqualified but honestly the only person here that's interviewed. That's worked at large publications so we're GonNa go with you. So that was basically it was it was Bazeley. Hey you're you've worked at reputable places so we'll hire yeah. I do think that's interesting interesting career wise like over the years. I've worked at James Beard Foundation in Time Out New York and the food's severe than G. Q. Got more fashion thing that came back to food. I was a sports writer in college like it is you can move around and I think one thing that editors employers look for is that you do have experience in in a particular field and that you know how to get stuff done that you know under you understand what the industry requires but within that sort of industry you can shoot food. You can shoot you know people. You can do all these things. You don't have to be in one lane. One hundred percent I think at the time I was taking some classes and I was also I was studying NPR print journalism at the time and I remember talking about that with Jake and he was like Oh. This is a plus because you kind of understand writing thing and photography on some level so we'll run with this so he didn't internship summer internship a year or so later. We ended up hiring you as a foot assistant no so I did this summer internship and I was like this is way better than working fashion. Everyone's so much nicer yeah yeah. It was a great time and I was like in order for me to WANNA stay in this world I can see I need to shift from fashion to food media so then I went back to Boston awesome for my senior year and as as I left Alex pollock the photodetectors times like hey we love your great. Just reach out when you're when you're graduating we can like. Maybe you keep you keep you happy. Come back so I would always send emails and I say hey just graduated like three months three or four months. I would love to come talk about a photo editor assistant role. Did you in the interim year. Were you working on shooting things. Decrease your portfolio to share with Alex to say hey I just want. I've been shooting a lot. Take a look at my stuff. Yes so thankfully because of my time I she went over to Boston magazine for my senior of college and I ended up being digital intern which basically means I was just doing every anything and everything for the website correct the king yeah yeah I remember being so proud and like twenty years old on my I've got years of intern experience. I haven't been paid for any of them but you we know I've seen some stuff like that really was my my pride enjoy worked a lot of places and they harden managed digital intern and they also gave me bill do photo take pictures and do have my own bylines socially once a lot of times when you get your foot in the door somewhere are the the brand or the magazine wherever they need people to do stuff go. You can go okay but we'll trust you. There's something trustworthy about you. Then people are all right. Go give this a shot. You'd have a DVD will keep doing it. I must really thankful that it was a web internship versus print because obviously no one's GonNa give any Interna print byline whereas it's much lower risk to teachers hey make something for lab and if it's really good we'll Polish and if not we won't publish in no one will ever or care about low budget so it was just gave me a lot more freedom and they knew that I worked at the food magazine before okay so you know how to take pictures of food. You were photo intern turn. I'm like yeah I guess I mean I. I saw Marcus Nelson. Do you like an overhead shot of something by a window so I can do that. How hard can it be yeah so I mean I I? I did it and they would. It was really cool. I mean they sent me there. Okay so we'll just have you do restaurants so they would send me like once a week in shoot for four restaurants a week and just shoot it for their website so who was giving you guidance about photos style at that point what kind of shots they wanted from the restaurants. It's nobody else really. They just assumed you knew what you were doing. The funny thing is I applied to Boston magazine to be a photo inter. I WANNA continue that path that track of being working for requirements it's but they they didn't want but then the digital department got back to me. I didn't really have communication with the magazine so it was just kind of me and our digital editor who just send me. I was like Oh this. Let's get this close enough to bone advocate and some overhead shots off light and like keep doing this and I would just bike around Boston Jason and go to a bunch of restaurants that are digital restaurant editor Chris Hughes covered and yeah it was it was really good training. It's really good training. I looking back it was really great just being able to go in and practice and shoot restaurants for relatively low risk and have that be an internship set eh great base so then I shot all these restaurants and as shooting what's in all this stuff to Alex pollick. I'm like hey portfolio.

I can go to Lansdowne street. I can go to the more classy places, but yet for some reason people have this incredible frustration is how do I find the right person and people are playing these games? And I think especially when you get to a place where if you want a serious relationship, and you're going out and all your meeting people that are sort of in the game mode. I it can be tough.
