"Blake. Bombed gardner is a freelance journalist from naperville illinois just outside of chicago. He's trying to get established in the journalism industry but faces mobility issues due to living with cerebral palsy. Welcome to the podcast blake. Thanks michael happy to be here. Yeah i'll i'm having heavy on the podcast so so first of all. Tell me a little about yourself. Where'd you grow up and How'd you end up getting interested in sports journalism. Well i've been a sports all my life and grew up in naperville so unfortunately early left left talent as much as i would like to a group of sports fan and obviously you'll could play because of because miserable palsy. So you'll just try to get involved in any way that can. I grew up to be kinda encyclopedia of sorts growing up. And that's how. I got acceptance. You know much by peers growing up in school innocent. So you're the the writing acumen kinda came later in high school and stuff like that and wanted to try to pursue journalism as a as a college major but my background in sports and my passion for it has run deep. Since i was young. And just trying to learn. You'll every fact. Savior stat. That i can and just kind of tried to soak all that so-called so tell me about the freelance gig will what sports are you covering now is the lead prep for naple son. Which is the local paper here. For off periods from march two thousand. Ten until let's call it March of two thousand and nineteen was Football boys basketball and baseball. So i was in effect doing what a staffer would be doing covering those. Those three beats you'll features. Gamers notebooks all area packages. You any recruiting stuff you know. If we had a certain certain athlete commit to commit to a school would do stuff on that so just basically doing what a staff writer would be doing. Just without title that goes with it in the cash comes with view approached us reached out to us talking about being a man with cerebral palsy. Trying to find a job in the journalism industry. Did you encounter any difficulties in doing your freelance job. I guess the only difficulty was or would be like for example football. You'll you got some reporters who could you watch from the sidelines. I can't do that one. I can't stand for long periods of time to far the bigger issue is being able to grip something in my left hand and obviously being able to to write with right hand so i football. I'd have to be up in the press box. Computer keeps my own. Stats with an excel spreadsheet. Keep a play by play an steno notebook and then obviously you're not being able to drive so i'd have to look enough you my mother's kind of saint so she would be able to drop me off at your whatever high school i'd be covering a gay matt and obviously picking me up then you'll with the pay per bidding sunday wednesday. Friday paper deadline wasn't as big of an issue. So i'd be able to file once. I got back home and then just file with my editor and then it would go online and probably late friday early saturday morning and then it would run for brit on something as far as the deadline issue. Goes you know you were say a staff reporter. Do you think that you'd be able to find ways to adapt so that you be able to meet deadlines. I think it would depend on. If if it was y'all we talk seven day week paper. We talk in your six days a week three days. I think that number one would depend. Beware you covering something. And how far of a distance do you have to go because again. I'm not somebody who who would go to like mcdonald's or starbucks your to file on a pitch to use your wifi so i've never really done that so i think it would just depend on the type of publication writing for and where where you're covering something in relation to where you live. I think that's probably the biggest the biggest impediment that i've encountered just from a standpoint of applying for fulltime work with papers. Because you're the sun was kind of a nice set up because you're only dealing with six school. So like the daily herald in arlington heights. Illinois you could be dealing with twenty or twenty five schools with dupage county. And i could never do that so. The son was a good setup just because of the limited number of schools and they're all relatively close by the some of the challenges. You mentioned you know such as going to the mcdonalds or whatever the file. I mean you know there are adaptations to that. You know you can. You can get a sort of a mobile wireless thing that you can set up. You could sit in your car or you could find a space where you could write something up and file in a shared some of your clips with us and i was looking at your your stuff on medium. I mean you're really good feature writer. Do you have a real sense of how to tell a story. And engaging story you know he had a number of interviews some sports people talking about you know the challenges they faced. I can't remember which one it was. It was about a A pitcher from creighton. Who went on and talked about a big league game. That was his first big league games. And that's a real human sports type feature that you know then. I thought you did really well. Yeah mcnicol shortstop maple central grad. Which is where. I went to school. Full disclosure that he. He played baseball three years at creighton and got drafted in thrown by the royals in two thousand and sixteen made his major league debut with the royals in may of two thousand and one thousand nine. Yeah i and also you had some stories up there about your experiences. I guess you you were pursuing job at espn in their stats department. Concerned told me about that experience. You'll couple years before that of this kind of full around twitter and peter vesey started. Follow me at twitter. So then i started engaging with pam kinda explaining your my story my journey. What i'm trying to do. Would you be willing to to look at somebody stuff. And then the all august of two thousand eighteen after a previous interview with the spn. Two phone interviews. It didn't go particularly well in terms of making the next step and really no fault of my own or at least i didn't think there was any fault on my own. So he said why. Don't you put your story out there. You'll we could put on facebook twitter. He was writing on patriotic at that point doing some work on his own so he was gonna try to help me get it out there. No so we did that august. Two thousand nine hundred got got some nice nice feedback back. Although the only person i really heard from wanted to actually meet with me was mark boyle the radio play voice of the pacers and he and i met in chicago in october before bowls. Pacers preseason game. The festival would six months. We did a follow up the wwl two thousand nineteen by bringing caught wind of it. And then he forwarded onto norby williamson. Who's a it'll bigwig executives peon and then you'll that eventually led to meet talking with a recruiter. Espn by the name of stacey williamson and then we. We got the point where i went out to bristol interview with. Espn for today's april third and fourth two thousand eighteen for job in their stats and information group and you know unfortunately a couple of weeks later found out that i was making it to the next step in that process but i made a strong enough impression with the giro up that i met with on the second day of an interview. And we've kept in touch. And i ended up applying for and interviewing for their production. Assistance program called. Espn next at a couple of interviews in march of this year and then found out in. May that i wasn't making it the next step that process which would have been an in person interview out bristol but obviously with covid nineteen that process. I'm sure got put on. Hold on that. You're what happened with that. So you kind of kept in touch with her the jar up. So we're still you'll let door. I don't think it's completely closed. But she's she's one of the few advocates that i have and i don't have a lot of them so you know trying to keep that door open as best. I can

interview With Father Gregory Boyle of Homeboy Industries
"Hey everyone. Welcome to how. I built this resilience edition from npr on these episodes. We talk with entrepreneurs and change makers how they're meeting today's challenges with new strategies and ideas and today we're going to hear from father gregory boyle. He's the founder of homeboy industries. Father greg founded homeboy industries after years of serving as a jesuit priest and later as a pastor at dolores mission church in east. La forty saw the devastating effects of gang related violence on his community after operating for over thirty years. Homeboy industries has become one of the largest gang intervention rehabilitation and re entry programs in the world. About fifteen thousand folks year walk through our doors trying to reimagine their lives. We were begun in nineteen eight. Just end my paris. Which was the poorest in the city but had had the highest concentration of gang activity. We had eight gangs at war with each other and i started to bury kids. I buried my two hundred and eighty third last week. Not all from that community. Obviously but i know a lot of gang members. So i get asked and and so we just started. Things started to school than we started the jobs program trying to find felony friendly employers then that was not so forthcoming so we started businesses. A bakery was the first in ninety two and now we have nine social enterprises but also a program of healing you know. Sluggers tattoo removal. There's therapy case management classes. It's an amazing series of programs. And as you mentioned i mean things like tattoo removal or just helping people kind of reenter society after being gangs or being incarcerated obviously while it's changing many employers still reluctant to hire people with felony records and in response to that you create your own businesses aside from the bakery which is probably the best known because it has locations in los angeles tummy a little bit more about some of the other social enterprises that homeboy industries has launched so at our headquarters. We have homeboy bakery homegirl. Cafe and homeboy homegirl marchandise. And then we have the restaurant at the airport a city hall. We have homeboy diner. The only place to get food at city hall. We have a thing called homeboy grocery where we sell chips salsa and guacamole and a variety of grocery stores boy recycling which is recycling. You waste which quite an extensive of business and growing amboise silkscreen and embroidery. That's been around for twenty seven years. Lap boesky nine in there so That's a lot. that's a lot. I was telling you earlier before we went live that i saw you profile and sixty minutes in. I think in the late eighties early nineties and i grew up in in los angeles. You're such a legendary figure there. I'm you've been awarded the california peace prize. And i mean you're a priest at the end of the day like your priest you do. Mass obviously socially distant for people who are incarcerated. But you're also an entrepreneur. Did you consider yourself as an entrepreneur when you founded this organization. Do you think of yourself that way. Now why board would never sign on the notion that i know anything about business so i don't really see it that way but we're always responding if tattoos had become a an obstacle in gang members. One of them off. We started that even in terms of our businesses. They were kind of haphazard you. There was no business plan. There was an abandoned bakery across the street from our school. Our parochial school in a movie producer. Ray stark after the unrest in ninety two wanted to help and i said well okay. I don't know by this bakery. It has ovens they don't work. You could fix them. We could put hairnets on enemy rival gang members. Well that was the entirety of my business plan. So i think i think everything else kind of operated in the same way. There was a couple from the parish who wanted to start rodriguez silk screening. And i said well. Don't start homeboys screening in. So that's how that was born so you know it wasn't like go some big master plan and it was all kind of accidental. You know we have a thing called the global homeboy network. Which is you know. Three hundred programs in the country outside kind of modeled on methodology. You know they all want to start a social enterprise and they all want to do food. Which i always say don't but you know because food is hard. Yeah restaurants are really hard sex in us to a bakery cafe and it's hard to talk people out of this. But i was tell do silk screening. That's recession proof. Everybody wants a shirt their family reunion or they're five k. race. And they'll go with you even if it's more expensive because it's kind of the. Paul newman feel good. You know it's like yeah. It's cost more but it helps employees
A New Way To Respond To Old Problems
"Another way that you can make a day better if it's not going to good. Are Actually, you don't even have to wait for it not to go good some of these things if we would do them on a regular basis, we wouldn't experience as many bad days and have to fight them off how about doing something new that will keep your life from being stale and stagnant because nothing has changed for the last twenty five years. I'M GONNA. If you don't like change well, get ready for. Boring. And then. If, we stop learning and growing were breathing but not truly alive. Joyce Meyer said. Oliver Wendell Holmes said a mind stretch by new experience can never go back to its old dimensions. Now, I believe that learning. Can actually add a little exciting element. To our life every day maybe the biggest thing we need to learn is a new way to respond to old problems. So here's a little story for you. Once upon a time complained or father that her life was miserable and she just didn't know how she was going to make it. She said I'm tired of fighting struggling all the time. It just seems after one problem is solved. Another one comes right on top of our father who was a chef took her into the kitchen and filled three pots with. Water placed each one of them on a high fire wants a three pots began to boil. He placed potatoes in one pot eggs in the second pot and ground coffee beans in the third pot it then let them sit and boyle without saying a word, his daughter, the daughter Moan and Groan complain and she was impatient wondering what was he doing after twenty minutes? He turned off the burners It took out the potatoes. Put them in a bowl full the eggs out, put them in a bowl. Then he ladles some of the coffee out into a cup turn into her and ask his daughter. What do you see? She's potatoes, eggs, and coffee look closer. He said touched the potatoes touched the eggs, SIP the coffee. So she did in noted that the potatoes. were. Soft. Go take an egg and break it and after pulling off the shelves she observed that it was hard. He Nice go to sip the coffee and it brought a smile. The rich aroma brought a smile to her face. Father what does this mean? What are you trying to teach me? He then explained that the potatoes, the eggs and the coffee at each face the same adversity, the boiling water however. Each one reacted differently the potatoes went in strong and hard and came out soft and weak the egg one in fragile with a thin outer shell protecting its liquid interior. But when it was put in the boiling water, it came out hard. However, the coffee beans were unique after they were exposed to the boiling water they change the water and created something new. So when you have. Problems and you know we do have problems and. I'm well aware that some of you have some serious problems going on in your life right now. and. If you're not in this building, surely many watching TV I've gone through. Terribly difficult times in my life, but we have to be so careful that our problems don't make us. We can win be where we don't just start having a give up attitude. and. Then we also want to make sure they don't make hard and harsh. Leave us with a bitter attitude. What we WANNA do we have problems is let God use them to change us and then let us change the world around us because of what God has

Columbia Sportswear's Gert Boyle Faced Down Sexism and Ageism
"Boyle. Grew. Columbia sportswear into a downfield powerhouse is the third Nar five-part series on the origin stories of iconic companies. We originally aired this episode about boils legacy after she died last. November, let's listen back. She was one tough mother and proud of it. Gert Boyle, the ninety five year old Chairman of Columbia Sportswear died earlier this month since then accolades poured in for boil, she was a formidable funny icon of the outdoor apparel world notorious for her resilience and her toughness qualities that empowered her to guide Columbia from near bankruptcy in the early seventies to what the New York. Times. Now calls the largest outerwear brand in the United States, a three billion dollar business. Gert Boyle was born gertrude lamb from in Germany in one, thousand, nine, hundred, twenty, four, when she was thirteen, the family fled Nazi Germany moving to Portland Oregon there her father lamb from bought the Rosenfeld hat company worried about antisemitism. He changed the name to the Columbia hat company. Columbia evolved from hats to outdoor year including a fishing vest that Gert than a homemaker raising three kids designed. Gertz husband Neil Boyle eventually became CEO of the family business. But in nineteen seventy, the forty seven year, old leader suffered a fatal heart attack. Suddenly Gert found herself at the helm of an eight. Hundred Thousand Dollar Company. She had no idea how Neil had run it nor how she and her son twenty, one year old, Timothy would manage. As CEO of Columbia Gert frequently encountered sexism, but she always had an acerbic comeback as the new. York Times reported Gert recalled that a businessman upon learning. She was the president exclaimed, but you're a woman her answer. You know I noticed that when I got up this morning. Still, the combination of rampant sexism in her inexperience almost killed the company by Nineteen seventy-one. Gert. Agreed to entertain an offer to purchase it. But when the buyer a man offered, only fourteen hundred dollars she custom out and slammed the door in his face wrote Doug Schnitt span who profiled her for outside magazine. Gert said for fourteen hundred dollars. I would just as soon run this business into the ground myself that encounter galvanized Gruden Tim with a combination of unconventional strategies including being the first to use the waterproof fabric. GORTEX. They saved Colombia and set it on its growth path while all of their outdoor industry rivals including the north face in Patagonia. Marketed their wares to elite climbers and adventurers girding in Tim, we're happy to sell their products. Products at department stores at lower prices that strategy shocked the young industry and it worked so too did the Marketing Campaign Gert? Boyle is best known for the one that featured her as just what she was. One tough mother that campaign which ran from nineteen, eighty, four to two, thousand, five depicted gert down to earth mob oil. Now, take no nonsense mother who didn't suffer fools gladly, and who would allow nothing less than perfection A. A string of TV ads showed Gert using her son Tim as a product Tester to prove that they're outerwear was both warm and waterproof. In the first. She had tim dressed in Columbia's famous three layer system. Walk through a car wash. Her favorite one was one in which she drove a Zamboni on a hockey rink. Right over her long suffering son dressed in Columbia gear. Of course, he was lying the ice breathing through a straw. Straw apprentice out of the same era for the boundary peak parker quoted the Middle Aged Gert, saying I've got hot flashes to keep me warm. You'll need something that zips mob boils tough. Mother ads are credited with transforming a little known business into a household name inside the company. Her wit was also on display. She summed up her guidance for other leaders. This way early to bed early to rise work like hell and advertise. She might have added and work like hell. Until the day you die, she made it to the office on her ninety fifth birthday in March and was still having business discussions shortly before her death on November third according to outsides Schmidt's Pon. Gert Boyle will be remembered for many things among them, her belief which she shared often with younger women that a woman could do anything and also her conviction that older workers are assets in the workplace. Indeed, in her nineties, she wrote perhaps my presence in the office offers a message that managers liked to put older workers out to pasture. Out. To lunch.
Winston Churchill statue sealed in steel ahead of protests
"Let's go to London now Frank where we've seen statues of some prominent figures from British history at the heart of the protest there yeah this is actually familiar I think to many Americans a slave trader who made me a lot of money in that business his statue was torn down in Bristol last weekend and then that's a city on the coast and then Churchill statue in parliament square was defaced where someone spray painted he was a racist what happened yesterday is a bunch of for white nationalists football hooligans and even some people who just generally offended by this these attacks on historical figures they surged into parliament square right you know in front of big band police have boxed up Churchill to sort of protect him and by the time with the mayor said and and even black lives matter's organizations you're said don't go to London for this this is going to end up with a lot of battles between white and black people but some anti racism protesters came anyway and so you had this protest and counter protest how did it play out yeah it was fascinating to watch the police penned in the far right of folks around the statues and they started throwing bottles and started punching police some of them clearly came here for a fight there were clashes between a white far right demonstrators and black anti racism protesters in Trafalgar Square I also ran across some black men who had face coverings and they were doing some hit run attacks on white protesters about the timing of the Waterloo station the train station there was some violence there and police actually had to seal it off in the end at least six people went to the hospital they were over a hundred arrests and see the other thing is this is all a bit surreal because we still supposed to be doing social distancing so you would have people wearing face masks punching each other so the whole thing was was restored yeah quite a scene up Frank did everyone come to London yesterday just looking for a fight no I mean a lot of people were peaceful and that one of the striking images was a black anti racist protester actually carrying one of the white protesters who'd been beaten and it was a sizeable center when I was talking to people who said you know if we're going to remove statues there needs to be a democratic discussion about this they can't just be torn down and a medical at Westminster bridge is names Andy Boyle he works in construction and he had come to monitor the protest he's white and this is what he said little available site dot this Congress and it's over by the strong rate on I will admit it still as racism today albeit it's getting better but it still isn't there yet I believe it should get there owner or French officials taking any action in response to what's going on the streets there yes they are well yesterday it ended rather chaotically because the police wouldn't let the protesters marched through the city that kept them pinned into the plaster at the break so we did see scenes of you know tear gas being fired but otherwise it was peaceful the government appears to be listening this week the interior minister Christophe Castaner he banned chokehold but the police have also come out they're angry they're say they're being stigmatized by a few bad apples and they have accused the interior minister of betraying them
Brewing with Fire: Carillon Brewing Company
"We also of course had to talk about the brewery itself which as I mentioned at its heart is one giant fire. This multi story brick fireplace essentially takes up one entire side of the Carillon brewing building in full view of the rest of the restaurant. Now if you're having trouble imagining that you're gonNA want to check out some of the pictures we put up on our website at the feast podcast Dot Org to appreciate an full. But if you haven't had a chance to check them out yet imagine a giant multistorey brick fireplace with a giant fire at the bottom level and yet another fire going on up top now. Needless to say this giant fireplace needs constant attention. A fire essentially has to be going at all times to keep the operational and well. It's a fulltime job so this is kind of crazy but we basically we opened up in August of two thousand fourteen As part of just a bigger living history exhibit for the larger part of Carolina's horrible parks. We had not talked about the eighteen fifties Dayton other areas of the park. So that was one of the reasons. Why chose the team fifty to replicate here in the brewery and the other reason was that we hadn't told the story of German immigration and Dayton. It's kind of a changing city in the eighteen fifties. We had new transportation routes that were opening up the Miami Erie Canal which runs right through. Caroline Historica Parker would have run through there when it was active was at its height by the fifties in Dayton In the later fifties the railroad finally came into town. So you start to see industrialization coming into this region Prior to that beer was being gruden has been done thousand years but beer wasn't being made on a commercial scale in the city of Dayton Until the eighteen fifties prior to that most of the beer is being home the housewife just a chore like any other and a essentially as safer source of hydration than the drinking water was often as a source of nutrition categorically Sosa Nutrition and the finished products is actually a fairly sterile product. Once it's produced that actually nothing really wants to live in it that's going to harm said so severe is important but by the eighteen fifties you start to see these purpose built industrial commercial brewing setups. coming up and so we replicated this building off of those early gravity fed. Industrial Brewers So what we're standing in is our brew house right now which relocated giant three tiered brick fireplace that. Actually it's not just one single heat source that has four different fire boxes free of which he parts of the brewing process one of which is a wood fired oven that we do our spangler and sour dough bread baking and about three or four days a week so dan is up there right now trying to get the fire going so we can go upstairs law. Show you everything. Here gets fermented in American White Oak barrels a little unique compared to a modern brewery which is using stainless steel and our pre. Kettles are copper. In Ohio by company called The Sun. So we had to have commissioned. You have three kettles up here kind of breaking down. The brewing process where essentially heating up water taking malted grain screens that have been sprouted and then dried trying to get the starches in the enzyme generated that can break down starch into sugar. By the malting process. We take those grains mill them in a stone mill here on site Bring them up to the top of the fireplace and we take our hot water. Mix It with the grains steep them for about an hour break those starches inside the grains this complex sugars down into simple sugars and then we'll translate into a third kettle which is directly heated by fire. That will be our boil pedal so once we start boiling. The words is liquid. That will become beer. That sugary liquid from the grain We add hops to it For most recipes we can add other ingredients like in our case coriander AOL that has coriander seed and Chili pepper. we do a squash. Butternut squash added to it so it can do a lot of different things in the boyle in terms of getting flavor into the beer. Of course boiling is what you're safely drink in water once we're done with that will cool the liquid down through a big cooling coil and then we'll ultimately end up in our barrels or or liberal. So it's a big process but we have these three giant copper kettle ones. One hundred gallons are Mash Tun. Excuse me is not directly heated but it is surrounded by so it's insulated so it can uphold that heat during the mash brought us and then our boil. Kettles his wealth can ask questions. You mentioned that it's handling rain. Who GETS THE QUARTERBACK? So that's a little bit in the beginning for the first about three years. We did have a mill that it's kind of funny it was a it was a steel roller mill which is a little bit more modern but housed in a kind of a historic looking setup and that was hand cranked so we actually were hanged cranking one hundred fifty pounds of grain every day for brewing process. That's like an intern. Yes exactly so volunteers. So there's three of us they get paid to do this full-time and we have about twelve men and women who actually come in and help us grew so those on tears are awesome and they help us do a lot of that kind of grunt work but we have since installed a stone mill in here with a little bit more appropriate to the eighteen fifties however that stone mill was designed to be hand cranked. We handmade the gears actually our presidency. Oh built that. He's a pretty skilled. Woodworker and with the gearing ratio. We found that the momentum of those large stones would actually kept the crank arm flailing on its own for about fifteen minutes so a little bit unsafe to you so right now we have a stone mill. That's unfortunately powered by electricity. It's kind of a mishmash so every once in a while we have to kind of put a little bit more modern twist on things just to keep things a little bit safer. But we'll hall up about anywhere between one hundred and a hundred and fifty pounds for per batch and we're a two barrel system so we we make about all things said and done about forty five gallons at finish beer of one batch so and I mean as far as your your other ingredients I mean hops obviously classic ingredient. Where are you sourcing Your House? So we get them from all over unfortunately still moat. The majority of hops are used for the brewing industry in America on the West Coast. So you're Valley Lamb valley places like that over in Oregon Washington and just interested you know from the nineteenth century. Perspective brewers who were working in Ohio Dayton in eighteen fifty would. They've been getting hops from Ohio. Where having from Wisconsin or west coast right so they were growing hops in Ohio for sure so in the eighteen fifties. It was kind of the opposite from now. We'll get them from. The West does in the fifties New York. State UPSTATE NEW YORK. Kind of in the cooper sound area was one of the biggest hop growing region for America Wisconsin but eating sixties with a huge hop growing regions. Ohio state have a significant hop culture? Well brewers would have been getting locally if they could but you also like you talked about earlier with the industrialization of brewing because of those transportation routes he could get hops from all over the place. A lot of brewers were importing hops from Europe from Germany and England. So can apprised tops. Like Hallertau in east can buildings Kim from overseas and so they would ship them and they would bring him in to those transportation route so they could get them smaller. So I mean there's still a little is brought to a certain extent. And then you know your your coriander seed and then you mentioned butternut squash. She kind of what brought you to those ingredients for the historical inspired. Imagine yet definitely so we spent about a year doing research prior to this facility being open just to figure out what we should be brewing. How To brew it? What equipment we needed but we need to build all those things and so we were talking about the year eighteen fifty here which is kind of the very beginning of industrialization for brewing in Dayton. We also have one foot in that early industrial style which would have been a little bit beers that were more used to today or credit more. Commercial Beers. Don't have all those crazy ingredients in them and then one flight back in the eighteen thirties housewife brewing methods. So we find a lot of these recipes. Coriander Ale came from A receipt book Recipe Book from the Eighteen Thirties so it was published in Cincinnati Ohio and it was basically a manual for how to raise a family. Todd receives proper seats for the Husband Minute Housewife Cincinnati. There's a chapter of the book of Brewing Essential part of raising a family and at that time in the eighteen thirties and found listed under the brewery section. Another way to make Ale so there wasn't even a name for it but it just described taking a Bushel of grain and a certain amount of water. Heating it up boiling it to a color which is kind of a funny Whatever that means so that's going to buffer interpretation with that meant back and then a culture coriander seed in Canada Seemed like exotic ingredients. And I think a lot of people think on the frontier wherever people just didn't have anything but then by the eighteen thirties they had the canal system so they could bring in pretty much anything. They want to get so coriander would have been available. They would have been growing slot tro in the and their gardens as well so they could have collected their own grain or seed so Chili Pepper capsicum Chili peppers. So they were bringing those eventually growing them too. So I imagine veterans Washer be something similar like right exactly or or even in the middle of winter. If you didn't have enough grain on hand sometimes these pumpkins. Soi shells even potato or beat. Beer would be dale here as well In January those representative of Beers that you were doing when you run out of grain so you're searching for other starchy from animal sources. And if you had grown wash harvested in the fall you keeping you root cellar and you can take it out and cut up in
Practicing Mindful Compassion
"In the series. What we've really been doing is breaking down the definition of mindfulness meditation? So mindfulness the way we practice of here at sacred show West at least aced is defined as to be present without judgment and with compassion. And so in this third installment installment of the series were spending the evening talking about compassion and interestingly I have found myself talking about compassionate feels like all month so it feels Dell's timely and I'm very excited to get to share with you guys tonight this practice so this piece compassion pieces such an interesting component it. Because I feel like it's very much a piece of the practice and equally so it's a piece of the outcome of the practice so a lot of times they talk about. Mindfulness as a bird with two wings one of the wings is the mindful the present the wakefulness fullness. And the other wing is the harmfulness. It's the sense that were opening up to a greater sense of connection engagement agenent involvement with ourselves and with the world and so the standard definition of compassion is to have the ability. Need to be with someone's pain that's the definition of compassionate has nothing to do with fixing it has nothing to do with helping it is just the ability to be with someone's pain even if that someone is ourselves but recently I heard a definition of compassion that really really really struck me and this definition came from Gregory Boyle who's a Jesuit priest out in la And the founder of homeboy industries. Which is the nonprofit that works with gang member rehabilitation and so he was talking about his work in the world and his views on compassion in the way he defined? It was to say that it's to be an awe of what somebody has to carry rather than to stand in judgment of how how they carry it to be in awe of what somebody has to carry rather than to stand in judgment of how they carry yet get and now what I know from about a decade of compassion practices is that it always no matter where you go and in who you study with it always has to start with yourself period which I think is the hardest place because we desperately I really want to run out and help other people but we really don't think we deserve it right in a general way. We really don't think we deserve it and we have to to start with ourselves because if we can embody that sense of compassion internally there's no way we can really healthily and fully share for it externally so now we have to direct that same definition to ourselves to be in awe of what we carry rather than stand in judgment of how we carry it. That's a big one I think and so we started this practice in a really really really simple way which is to say at the end of every meditation you do in some form or fashion. You silently silently say to yourself great job and maybe that sounds so silly but this is truly one of the ways. We begin to practice just compassionate towards ourselves. Because I know I'm not the only one who hears the bell rang at the end of twenty minutes and think I thought the whole time I fell asleep. I wrote a grocery list. I practice the argument. I'M GONNA have with my husband later. I did something other than meditate for twenty twenty minutes and the bell rang announce over and I lost my chance. May and the work is to catch that that dialogue and go uh-huh did you sit down for twenty minutes. Did you stay. You're calling it meditation because the practice is simply to be present here and not judge yourself so this is where we also start to feel this. Very cyclical you know. I'm teaching in this in. This linear way tonight. We're talking about presents we're talking about non judgment. We're talking about compassion as if we could really separate them out into three distinct pieces when really. It's just a circle right. It's just a circle because I start to judge myself because what did I do. Do I left the present moment right Ari. I'm creating a future argument with my partner. That hasn't happened yet and is definitely not happening in this moment. So catch it and I say that's okay good job you caught it compassion. I come back to presence here I am again. I'm supposed to be meditating. Feel the BRA. Aw fill the breath and when I don't feel the breath I can't feel the breath I think something else and I'm like oh so bad at this non judgement got it doing a good job try again. And here's our circle just over and over and over again

Merger Monday, Bloomberg's Bid, Holiday Movie Recs
"Good morning everybody. Welcome to Squawk box here on. CNBC we are live from the Nasdaq market site. In Times Square becky quick along with Joe Kernan and Andrew. Ross sorkin first step on this morning's pod a couple of updates on stories we've had our eyes on or IRS's on if you get your squawk through ear buds instead of on a screen. Remember in October when French luxury conglomerate. LVMH made a bid for New York's iconic jeweler tiffany. Well they up the bed the very shiny prize a big deal. This morning of the world's largest luxury goods company has now confirmed his reached a deal to buy tiffany. This has been quite at some time in the making the price tag this time. One hundred thirty five dollars per share in cash sixteen point two billion dollars total the largest ever in the luxury sector the boards both companies approving that deal yesterday afternoon and the transaction expected to close in the middle of next year will mark the end of Tiffany's one hundred eighty two year history as a standalone brand and a little blue box isn't changing but it does reflect the changes to remain independent amid increasing consolidation across retail and adding tiffany's Eddie Murphy to the portfolio will strengthen. LVMH's position forcing watches jewelry. The group acquired Gary and back in two thousand eleven eleven like Lvmh t LVMH T- LVMH. What if I would pay? How much would that cost the figure out to add a t not to do you think they should? I think they should add T. You think it's that important. Is that valuable important as those ugly back and look but what is amazing is that they did get him up. I mean this one hundred thirty five dollar price tag came up from one hundred twenty dollars recall when when this when when they first went after him and the question I think we threw out. There was whether they'd get one hundred thirty five bucks one hundred at forty. They didn't push back if you go back. And Look at tiffany stock even two or three years ago where it was relative to where it is today so I I mean the interesting stuff therefore therefore baby gifts like a little spoon. Yes in general. I don't know it's like super retail. I think Chinese people love in China. It's big and Chinese on these sorts of come here it's really be in the United States. Just me personally. I you know when you go to forty seventh street. I'm sure not. I mean I would rather go down there. forty-two the haggle. Well just don't pay absolute top dollar for for stuff that everybody else has and another deal. We've been following following Charles Schwab effort to buy. Td Ameritrade as of this morning. That's done to Charles. Schwab Corporation is going to be acquiring. Td Ameritrade this is a story. We we first reported last week. Td Ameritrade is now naming Stephen Boyle as the interim president president and CEO suspending their CEO. Search because obviously this will be taken care of with with this deal. Charles Schwab is offering issue is going to be issuing one point eight three seven shares for every td ameritrade share. That's out there We'll continue to keep an eye on says Charles Schwab saying that. Toronto Dominion Bank's going to be holding about thirteen percent of a stake in the combined company. You could see right now. Charles Schwab shares which ran up last week on. This news are right now down by about twenty two cents to forty seven ninety eight so maintaining basically the gains that they had seen last week on this when it was first announced. Td Ameritrade shares at this point indicated by about two point three percent. That's a gain of a dollar thirteen to forty nine twenty six again after they saw gains last week as well. Charles Schwab saying that they see this deal being fifteen to twenty percent of creative give to the adjusted earnings per share in the third year in the third year of this deal Schwab right. It's going to be called Schwab. This sounds sounds like a fun thing though analysts have looked at this and said because they both have very strong trading platforms. That you won't see as much of the accretion in terms at the probably both the Charles Schwab and td Ameritrade plan trading trading platforms operating. Because they don't overlap. There's some things the. TD AMERITRADE has like options for insurance little bit stronger. Charles Schwab has a lot of things like People who will talk to you and guide you through these things because of that the probably see some analysts analysts speculating around forty percent in terms of the accretion that they can kind of combine and put these together with those both platforms need to advertise separately swap box. Random House expected to be where you will see some of the. Oh no no no I got a double double down on both platforms. They say anything. But I close with this point break- fees and I don't know I. I have not seen that to me though the two issues. That will be interesting a break-up fee whether you interesting because you think out trust issue not so much on the consumer side but potentially For for all of the investment advisers out there really I mean I think collectively collectively they have like sixty seventy percent. Would you say this is that works serious antics three so they are two things there. There may be a look. Get that and so you you care about that issue. The other issue would be about deposits that that used to stay at. Td Bank so td Ameritrade used to run all their deposits. It's into Toronto. Dominion Inter Dominion. That was actually a huge fee generator for TV bank. And so once. If you take those out I assume Schwab is going to keep those Deposits in their own bank effectively. What that does to? TD LONG-TERM SO. These are some of the questions that I think at least in baking world. They're they're probably so but I don't know I'm GONNA. We'll look great deal. That's good news for holiday. Travelers gas prices down this quarter of the lumber survey the national average falling four cents cents to two dollars and sixty six cents per gallon drop is likely due to an increase in supply now that several refinery repair projects have been completed. Also a word of warning warning triple as saying Wednesday is the worst day of this holiday week to travel with trips taking as much as four times long four times two hundred percent longer due to congestion I in some weather issues. That could be a little more difficult Wednesday out of on the East Coast here starting in Colorado and coming across do you. ooh The minivan. Yes sir. What about it? Is there a a hybrid model that you can buy make hybrid models. That'll make a cool or no. Let's give it up for just wondering why you haven't truck Tesla. Yeah that's what I was saying. Why why aren't you? Just springing brings for something electric because you need a minivan supplements. There's no electric minivans or there's no My mic one. Now they're not cheap anymore. Ah Minivans by themselves this is unlike so like so many of you. That don't walk the walk when you talk about other stuff. The vacuum cleaner in the minivan is more important than

Marne Levine From D.C. to Silicon Valley
"Of our favorite things to do on this podcast pick the brain of people whose careers have really taken some unique turns and who tackled big jobs which brings us is to mark. Levin who is currently the vice president of Global Partnerships Business and corporate development at facebook previously serving as chief operating officer at Instagram and before that was in the Obama administration straight as chief of staff of the National Economic Council and Special Assistant to the president for economic policy. We can keep going back but we only have so much time Marnie. Thank you so much for doing this. Well thank you for having me. Those titles are mouthfuls. I started. I took some notes on paper. I've got just lines that that make sure I get those right but took an entire sheet. Almost it's great to be here in the Great State of Texas or we're glad you're here visiting from the Great Silicon Valley which will cover here a little bit but your career began in the great city the city of Washington DC at the Treasury Department. So how did you get started in policy in government actually think my career began in Cleveland Ohio. Which is where I was raised raised growing up I was always really interested in politics and policy and then my senior year of high school I got a job working for it was an internship working for the county commissioner. This woman named Mary Boyle who is a real fireball and that's it's really where I learned about. The role that government could play in people's lives and I was hooked immediately and my job there was to new research different proposals and to help work on casework and provide access to different kinds of get that people access to different kinds of social services that they needed which was great they also had me working on a solid Waste Management Plan. I got really into that as does so much so that I was nicknamed. Trash Queen Levin those a fortunate said of rhyming right exactly so that was the that was I think the kickoff to the career that sort of where I got the so-called bug for politics and policy and so oh then after college I moved to Washington. DC AND I ended up getting a job at the Treasury Department. This was before the Internet so so I didn't really fully understand or appreciate what the Treasury Department did but I knew that I wanted to have an impact on people's lives lives and I thought that you know government was the best road to be able to do that and that policy was kind of the best vehicle Kohl for doing that and so working at the Treasury Department where we could work on low cost basic banking accounts financial privacy things like that. I thought we could help help improve people's lives and was a great start in Holly. You spent a long career. Government is well I did I did yes thank you for pointing uh-huh and so did Hollywood you kind of have a similar experience to that in your desires yeah and you know I had a little bit of a similar experience. It was slightly later later for me where I really had not been exposed to politics. Policy is a kid that significantly other than what you just read in the news and and and learn in school and then when I was in college I interned in Congress and that kind of bug is what really turned me on to and got me into policy work as well yeah and you were you legislative affairs right I did I did policy work and then I ended up doing legislative affairs at the end because I had worked in Congress so once she working Congress they figure you know how to how to deal with members of Congress. At the Treasury Department. I started in the chief of staff office but then I would see people running up and down the hallway all day running back and forth back and forth back and forth and I would hear the click clack of heels on the on the marble floor and I thought what are they all doing and then I realized that it was negotiations with Congress and so I thought that's where I wanna be like that's where the action is working on working from the Treasury Department with people in Congress on different kinds of legislation and so that's eventually where I moved to yeah yeah it was fun because I had worked on Congress and worked on legislation that I then had to go into the administration and implement seeing both sides of in writing it and then implementing it was really interesting and not a lot of people I think have that experience of actually writing it and then having to go put it in action and figuring out what we did well and what you didn't do so well when you wrote a piece of legislation different skills knowledge and a different level of detail yeah yeah so then in two thousand eight after you're spending some time in the Treasury Department he joined the Obama Transition Team from the Bush administration Bamut Ministration and wrote about the the kind of exciting being difficult decision to take a position that really was going to suck away a lot of your time. How did you balance that in your life. Well I had worked in the Clinton administration in and I was in my twenties then and I knew how all consuming it was so I was in a very different place in my life. When Obama was elected I was married worried. I had a three year old child and then I had I had just had a baby and so I was really interested in serving and and I was very grateful to even be given being given the opportunity to serve and I wanted to play some small role in helping to address the great recession and the financial crisis that was going on so I had a conversation with my husband. He said we'll make it work work and I thought I was but what happened was pretty interesting for me. One morning I had to go into the White House late because I had to take my then three year old son to the doctors and we were driving home from the doctor's appointment and he and he said where are you taking me and and I said well. I'm going to drop you at school. You're okay and then I'm going to go to work and he said. Did you know that Matthew's mother drops him at school every morning and I said well. I don't know that Matthew's mother does that every morning but I try to take you when I can now there was at the White House. There's the seven thirty. AM senior senior staff meeting and then there's the eight fifteen am meeting which is the extended senior staff and that was the meeting. I was supposed to go to but that conflicted with taking my son to school unless I took them really early in the morning and so Monday morning rolls around after we'd had this conversation and he marches into our bathroom threw him and he says he says to me and my husband so who's taking me to school today looking straight at me no pressure and I said well. Daddy's GonNa take you to school school and he said do you remember our conference on Friday when I told you that. Matthew's mother takes him to school every morning and I I said I do remember. That husband looked at me and he said well what are you gonNA do. I said you know I think I'm going to need to take him to school in the morning. So it's interesting who your teachers are in life and in this case it was and what he was saying is. I need you in the morning and not in the evenings. which is what? I thought I he needed me dinner any we needed me for bedtime but he really wanted me first thing in the morning and so I march into work that day and I told one of my colleagues that he would would be attending the meeting he was thrilled and I started taking my son to school and when I think what I learned through all of that is I could make it work but but this was much more about quality over quantity of time together and that I really needed to listen to the feedback that my kids and my husband we're giving me about what they needed. Specifically and once I was dialed into that I was able to kind of make it all work I got into the White House. I would get there every morning at about nine fifteen in the morning which is late for ready late but the world's still turned into L. worked out Yup so Marnie after your timing government then went out to Silicon Valley and I'm curious how you found that transition. There are two very different worlds. They're different and and then there are also similarities so let's start with some of the differences. The obvious ones were the dress code I went from suits to hoodies and that was a real transient wearing jeans to work in that was that was definitely but I've now adjusted and I would say there was a difference in language to in in the government we would always say I'm going to write a memo advice. Good memo oh right away and it facebook. There would be something that would look like a memo but we would call it. A plan and there was in Washington. There was a lot of talk about fail failure legislation that had failed or didn't pass and in Silicon Valley. There was lots of discussion about pivoting okay right so there we're differences there were there are lots of differences in that regard and I would say the glaring difference was that in Washington there is a love of paper and big binders full of paper and in Silicon Valley. There's not a lot of paper around I personally brought my love of paper with me to use Silicon Valley and get teased mercilessly for it but I I would say that the similarities are as follows there are I feel like in government is a collection of best and brightest and it is a collection of people who are very mission focused and focused on doing good in the world and bringing about change and I think that in Silicon Valley there's a lot of that as well a collection of really smart people who are mission driven ribbon and trying to do good in the world affect people's lives and positive ways. I think the things that I brought with me from Washington war for you know being able to peer around corners and identify risks. That's a skill that one develops in Washington and also when you're trying to get something being done in a vast government is that you need to have process and you need to bring all stakeholders to the table and have conversations and be able to synthesize emphasized that to come up with the best policy recommendations in Silicon Valley things move pretty quickly and in scaling organizations what you WanNa do is apply just enough process so that you can get the best of thought from everybody but not so much process that you really slow everything down and I think I brought some of those skills from Washington continue to facebook when I started there in two thousand ten you obviously very senior woman in silicon in valley and you and your friend and colleague Sheryl Sandberg have really been a promoter of women in the C. Suite Talk to me about that issue and why you're you're passionate about it and what you encourage other women to do and how how to how to think about their roles well I think for me. It's all about connection community among women from the earliest days. I've always really enjoyed getting together with women and I just I've I draw strength from that and I've seen what happens with other women when they are connected. When I was in business school early on there there was a woman in my section we all didn't really know each other very well and she had just gotten engaged in so I suggested hey why don't we all get together and come over to my apartment and will toast Christine but at the same time you know we'll get together and talk about things and get to know each other and what was so interesting we made up at that the point I think less than twenty percent of the of the class of our group and when we when we came into the classroom the next morning there were a a lot more women who were speaking up a lot more women who were building off of each other's comments and they felt more confident as though I think that was one of the Times where I really saw or how that connection and feeling of community could be empowering for other people and then things like my book club where we actually would read the book and discuss it would also became kind of my leaning circle that Cheryl started the lean in circles and that's really about relying on one another connecting acting sharing and helping each other make important decisions in in one's
"boyle" Discussed on The Robert John Boyle Show
"We have now that are socially acceptable. It's a you know stimulants suppressant so alcohol and Weller kind of drugs like caffeine. It's screens. It's sugar you know all the junk food that we crave grave so all these things like the glass of wine that we give ourselves when we come home at night or like watching the extra show on net flex all these are like little light socially acceptable addictions fictions but they add up and that's one of the first things. I try to tell people be aware of all that stuff. Bring aware that's actually for the first time practicing self awareness in your life of just this give up one of those things or spend less time doing it and see how it affects the rest of your life. See how you feel to me. The the the goal of developing self awareness practice is to get in touch with how do I feel about anything. Does that make me feel good or bad is at an something. I need to give up permanently or just once. It's in a while. Is it seasonal so you start developing this awareness about across all aspects of your life so so it's it's not about perfectly perfect customizing your life but it's start bringing awareness to know how to cope with all different types of circumstances that are going to go on your life like. I feel like I'm much less reactive now because that was an experiment I I've done as trying to pay attention to when I just had a snap reaction to anything and that helped me understand like Oh. Oh Wow it's because I didn't eat properly. I didn't get enough sleep or I've done too much work today and it's time to call it quits even now a lot of times when I feel all by brain is overactive at some point during the day. I actually take a nap now because I'm tired because I've learned the taking a power nap. I actually use the APP brain dot. FM solicit to some nature sounds for fifteen minutes puts me into a nice deeper state really quickly just to like settle my mind back down and they wake up so refreshed and like okay now we can get get back to doing something instead of where a lot of us are locked in this loop for like eight ten twelve hours a day like. I gotTa keep doing more more more but the quality of what you're doing. It just keeps climbing it with every hour. You keep trying to force yourself to do something. Tell me you know you brought up the fact that we use things like sugar and caffeine net flicks to kind of numb ourselves think about things for the person who's listening. That's like why should I go on this self-awareness journey. I want to watch Netflix like like why do I want to remove these things from my life. Talk to them about what the benefits of going on this journey our before we go into the details of how to do it yeah so I think there's is a lot of people who like I'm perfectly happy right now like totally like have no idea like sometimes I can be around people and I can totally like communicate with their inner voice me like you got some stuff going on right now. You don't know about yet because you haven't brought some awareness but there's obvious trauma pain or unhappiness happening here and a lot of us. Don't want to deal with it. That's why we have all these knowing habits around or why we consume so much. We put up this facade of like look at me. I got the big house. I got married at. The two kids are going to this fancy school. See I did everything everybody said would make me successful so thus I must be happy but deep down inside the like crap. I don't like any of this. I don't even know why I'm doing this. I'm miserable but I can't let anybody know that right. So that's Kinda like a conversation. You need to have with yourself a like. Are you really living living every single moment of your day every single life in the way that you would like and a lot of times people like well you know. I got to pay the bills. You know. How people depending on me I think respectfully respectfully. I think you're kind of using that as an excuse. I'm not saying Shirk your responsibilities never but you can have a more on his conversation with yourself about how you WanNa go about doing doing at so. I think that's something you know if you I think we all know that we know like if we're having a little too much of if anything's become a chronic habit like you're watching a few too many netflix episodes or having too much alcohol. You're you know you're having that extra helping of ice cream like like I'm bringing awareness to you like that. I want you to pick one of those things over the next week and ask yourself. Am I doing this because it's enjoyable to me or am I doing it because I don't know what else to do with myself and I wold myself into thinking that this is what's calming me down. I I love that question you ask because I when when I started over the past summer I've been thinking about a lot of the things that I do like all the sugar that I consume on all the shows that I watch and just asking myself the question that you just ask I am. I doing this because I enjoy doing this. Because what else would I rather do. Or what else would I be doing for the person who's let me just quickly back up you. We'll really understand is like trying to pick one of those things. Give up sugar for like thirty days about Netflix are watching TV video for thirty days or give alcohol for thirty days as give up social media for thirty days. What will happen is you will then find yourself like when I I gave up television. I found myself suffer the first couple of days grabbing for the remote and I was like Oh my gosh. I'm like like Pavlov's dogs like I'm like like oh I couldn't believe like my instinctual reaction and it just made me realize gosh. I kind of have an addiction here. I got a break this so that's the first moment that this is really important. I don't believe there's anybody in modern society in a more in America that doesn't have an addiction. We all have something now and we need to face it and deal with it. It's not okay okay like well. Everybody has one that should not be a good enough standard for you anymore. You should say I want to conquer this. I want to be in control of my life so do one of those quick experiment went to see you start to feel for yourself what it means to feel like an addiction like that withdrawal being like. I really want this but I I'm doing this challenge. That's what you need to have that conversation with yourself like oh my gosh. There's actually a chemical addiction it that's part of best to and it's just a habit addiction and that's what I want you to bring awareness to wall so tell me once someone does that challenge and they start to feel the withdrawal symptoms. How do they make sure that they don't start judging themselves for having these addictions like like helping yeah about that. Somebody has read my article what is suffering and by the way if you just type in self awareness to Google you can find this people. This is so important I was talking about this with somebody today because a lot of times when we start developing a practice of self awareness we actually are judging ourselves and and we easily slip into this pattern of self judgment that is not at all what I'm advocating here. Let me describe self-awareness. It's kind of like you're watching yourself. You're like having an outer body experience. You're watching yourself at different points in the day and your behavior as if you were somebody else and you're seeing behavior and then there was a result and then you see this behavior for time and time again you see the same result and what you're doing is not judging yourself saying that that behavior behavior is bad or good. You're just asking yourself. Do I like that result or would I like to change the result. If I say I want to change the result that means I'm going to have to change that behavior so we take all the self judgment out of this so for example if you're sitting there saying like I wanted to do this thing but I don't have enough money but all of a sudden you'd say to yourself like but I do go out a lot and maybe I could like cut out drinking for thirty days and see much money. I could save that is kind of not. Oh judging yourself your thing. I'd like to shift the money. I've been spending a lot on drinking and move it over to creating a travel budget because that's the reward I want. That's the result I want. The result and I'm currently getting is having a lot of short-term bomb but I'm getting a Lotta hangovers and I see my bank account depleting and I'm really not actually always having a great time. I don't even remember what did the night before. Sometimes you just saying it's not about judging yourself as saying you can keep doing that and say like actually I'm having this is a period. I'm going through for an out as it's fun to me. Go for it okay but if you say you want to do this other thing you know think about it so it's really just observing the consequences of your actions with out judging yourself that self awareness and the question that keeps coming to mind for me is. I don't know I when I think about what we're saying. I think about someone who's listening to this. That's just like I don't WanNa do all that work. You know like the drinking in the watching. The Net flicks lakes in sugar addiction. Those are the things that help people numb the feelings they may be feeling from other areas of their life the problem that they're having with their relationship and whatnot talk to me about again really just drive home the point about why it's important to do this work the hardest work you will ever do in your life as working on yourself because it comes comes from with that the most important work you could ever do in your life. It's working on yourself but we have constructed society particularly our economic system. That helps helps us avoid this so that way. We don't even have to deal with us so we most of us are avoiding something. We are all of a winning. Something and it's about really to to me. I am working on a book now. Call the only work left and the only work left is facing the thing that you've been avoiding and it seems so painful on hard but one thing I've I learned the more you can actually face those things. It's really not that big a deal in the short term. It's just a moment in your life. You can get on it and get over. It and it's very liberating because what I would say the big reward on the other side is when you are trapped in this world of avoidance and you're trapped with all these socially acceptable addictions when you are explicitly unaware and living in the land of not being self aware at all. You're giving away all your power. You're allowing other people to constantly manipulate you in control you and tell hey how to live your life. If you're a person who wants to live a life of attention live.

"Support the success of the business awesome so it sounds like you're working a lot with people so talk to us a little bit about how that relationship will start will accompany reach out to you and say hey. We'd like you to coach one of our executives. tell us a little bit more about that process sure so so it may begin in a number of different ways as you suggest. Robert it may be that an organization has a particular leader that they want coaching for the leader may have a a new mandate a new scope or new geography or a different set of stakeholders and the premises they may have been successful with a group of stakeholders in the past. They may now have a different group of stakeholders where there are different agendas priorities personalities and how does that leader best navigate gate what it is. They're trying to achieve in the context that everybody has a different set of deliverables and you. You may not necessarily be aligned with what I need. So how do I influence you and get you to a point where we have a common ground and we're solving for the same kind in a problem so that might be one other organizations May. WanNa go through a transformation of change. They may be going through emanate tippety or growing growing organically and want a different set of leadership skills. How do they cultivate those leadership skills to best position that organization through the merger acquisition and as well to create a different LO- different culture so for example a firm may have had a steady state as Z. Grow through an acquisition. If the intent is to create a growth mindset within the culture what type of leadership skills are required for Roth mindset that would be different from how they've been operating historically so going from perhaps a process due diligent type of culture her to more of an innovative creative entrepreneurial culture which does require unique set of leadership skills different from how the organization as function previously obviously all right perfect. Thank you for that background and then one last question on this. Tell me a little bit about what it actually looks like when you're working with someone is at your meeting on a biweekly basis. A weekly basis are communicating via skype email like what is that coaching process really look like so great question it probably takes it's all those forms it is by weekly also just in time coaching so if a client is going before their board of directors or presenting to their CEO they may want to do a a dry run around the type of presentation the caliber of the presentation the content to make sure strategic enough high level enough and and so in addition to the formalized biweekly meetings we may meet in between and yes it's all those it may be texting skype there for certainly in person an and they also have meetings with their executive at times human resources talent management some of their stakeholders so that way everybody has a vested interest in having that employees or senior leader be successful perfect. Thank you for that so where I'd like to go next is no. We're here to talk about the Forbes article where I found out about you. Tell me a little bit about how you started writing for Forbes and what that process was like in why you wanted to start art putting content out from my point of view. Forbes is a very distinguished media vehicle and speaks to a wide audience a very seasoned accomplish leaders at as well as leaders who may be identified as high potentials emerging leaders and aspired to be part of the Forbes community so I thought it was good Benue for me to speak to some of the various leadership opportunities and challenges that come my way and and I would have a attentive audience so as I submitted my article a number of years ago I continued to do so and write for Forbes use probably anywhere between three or four times a year as other different publications in addition to Forbes. That sounds good so let's talk about the article on the article's title for everyone. Listening is why entitlement is the number one leadership derailed or you know I'm sure you allow these concepts generated in your mind through your experiences working with management and executives but from your perspective respect tell me why you wanted to write this article and why you specifically wanted to talk about entitlement of course so why I wanted to write about it and why I wanted to talk talk about it is that if you take a cross section of any leadership group any employee group and the statistics true within the population at large there are Dr individuals who are entitled and if we look at the definition of entitlement it does mean that that individuals feel they are deserving something usually really special extraordinary and believe that they are a cut above other people and whether it's their talent whether it's sports parts whether it's our technical expertise and when leadership as entitled it doesn't number of things one it. Does this act derailed because it puts you a card from other people. It doesn't allow you to necessarily collaborate effectively because you you are likely coming across as self-motivated or self interest which isn't about speaking to the collective win or the team team win as well. You are entitled. There's a sense of privileged. Perhaps you present as being indulged dodged in or just being better better smarter quicker more strategic knowing more and it is off putting to a your peers or your colleagues who feel they are equally smart where sometimes may be actually smarter but certainly have according to view and weigh hinch and want to weigh in and they don't feel they have the opportunity because they are clips or circumvented by that entitled leader. Okay and then can you talk talk about some of the situations that this type of behavior will lead to within an organization. You know you talked about entitled employees feeling like they're deserving deserving of something. It's harder for them to collaborate talking me about some of the situations that you've dealt with where this actually leads to a situation negative situation in an organization sure so all leaders and particularly the more senior you are in the organization. All leaders are encouraged have a point of view and a voice and it is why they we are at the table so the more senior you are the less reliant you are on your technical expertise in the more you are on those influencing an impact skills so hello an organization does foster employees and leaders to weigh in and contribute when though you show up at at the table and you believe you are the smartest person in the room that in itself is truly a red flag and because what it does is it then causes others to feel that they are marginalized so if in my practice the leader is entitled they will show up as arrogant and they will show up in some ways feeling that they are privileged or special and they they may do a number of things that are off quitting so they may try to buy for their executives attention by by asking for more time by asking for putting their hand up for a special project wanting to lobby in a more challenging or more forthright way for their own cause and when they do that at the beginning they may be very smooth mood they may be very polished and savvy and others may not see it but with time it becomes apparent that there are really aspirational and self interested in a highly narcissistic manner okay and then talk to me a little bit about that because a lot a lot of the qualities that you're describing sound like qualities of you know someone who's like a go getter. Someone who is ambitious talking me about the difference between someone one who has a a a solid level of ambition and wants to excel in an organization versus someone who's really entitled in thinks that they're entitled to Special Opportunities -Tunities and to accelerate organization is fantastic question so if your ambitious and aspirational absolutely those are qualities that that we seek out in leaders and senior leaders because it is about wanting to make a difference it is about wine to add value and for those who are aspirational `rational you think about. How can I increase my scope. How can I have a more complex mandate because this is how I am challenged. This is how I the. Mb measured on the metrics around how I do impact that's different than a narcissist leader who is about wanting to show off after trophies about hey look at me and their favorite reflection is their own reflection in the mirror that says look everybody. I'm so great and and you owe all of you might team others in the organization only for my smarts for my ability to allow allow you to shine verses leaders who are aspirational and or not narcissistic are interested in helping profile and create visibility for others so my clients who are aspirational look have very much a yes a need to win with. They do it around around coaching and developing others because they are great exporters of talent. They want other people to basically be a reflection collection of them were relative to their own achievements and they position and for greatness versus entitled leaders look at in terms of anyone who surround him is fortunate or Laki just by being near them and that's why others are successful so aspirational leaders who are ambitious want to seek out opportunities to profile there directs their peers because they're proud of that because they feel that they are a contributor to their success as opposed to created. Their success says that makes a lot sense. ASPIRATIONAL leaders want to lift people up around them but don't feel like just because people are around that those people are now better for being around them and where I want to go next I wanNA talk about this difference between aspirational leaders in entitled leaders in the context of win. something goes wrong when a project goes bad in there and now people are pointing fingers and blaming others talking about the difference about how those two leaders would take that kind of situation. I love this question and you're making me smile. So in terms of the difference wins an aspiration leader was something goes wrong what they usually do is they'll step back and reflect the pull the team in and say let's step back and go through the steps that we took. Did we socialize our idea. Did we do due due diligence. Did we speak in advance to all the key stakeholders to ensure that we've considered all the data points that we have alignment that that we have them on board before we execute and where was the missing gap. What are the lessons learned. How do we retrace some of our steps on. What do we do differently differently going forward to ensure that we minimize the consequences or the implications for the next time around. That's very different than in entitled leader who spends time externalizing lane they are masters at pointing their fingers at this went wrong because because so-and-so wasn't fully on board because I didn't have enough of the right resources because my budget was pulled because this team player didn't show up and so they are they excel at not being accountable at not taking ownership for are the problems when they go wrong and instead look externally and when you are entitled you're arrogant and when you are arrogant you have very little or minimal self-awareness minimal insights into the role you've played and also very little little tolerance to look inside yourself so typically what happens with an aspirational leader is that when they are given feedback act aspirational leader whose well-balanced will step back have a leadership maturity to an entitled leader.

"Welcome back to make positively louder? I'm your host. Robert John Boyle and you just heard Miss Sunshine by Ben Kenney recently featured on my other podcast fade for those of you who are longtime time listeners of make positively louder. You know that almost every single episode involves me reaching out to people and getting voice messages and then answering the question of of what's the best thing to happen to you in the past week and what I'm doing now is I'm keeping that same format but I wanna make the questions a little bit more interesting a little bit more nuanced and I want focus on some of the concepts that I've been picking up from Gary v someone who's made a really big impact on my life in terms of showing me things that I need to learn emotional. No intelligence things that I need to learn in one of those things is feeling like you have nothing to prove for myself. I feel like I have things to prove to my my dancer friends that I can become a really great dancer. I feel like I have things to prove to my college friends that I can be successful in the voice I industry. I feel like I have things to prove to my parents and my extended relatives that can be successful and for me. It's not that I don't want to be successful at. I don't WanNa have the obligation or the feeling or the need like I'm trying to prove anything to anyone else because I feel like when you have something to prove. It makes you impatient. You WanNa get there faster so that you can say I told you so and also what I've learned from speaking to people. Is that even when you end up doing that thing when you end up proving that person wrong it. It doesn't feel as good as you think. It's going to feel because at the end of the day you were doing it for them not new and so once you achieve it and you prove them wrong. You really have nothing left for yourself and you feel a little bit empty. You feel like your time has been wasted and this is a message that you know something that I'm learning something that I want my audience to learn in really inculcate along with me. What I've realized is that even though I'm a good communicator a lot of people aren't going to get it just from me and the thought is what am I bring other people on other people who believe in this concept and could speak to it and hopefully one of the voice messages that you're about to hear kind of click in your her head in in engage you to start doing something that can kind of unwind the thought patterns of feeling like you have something to prove. I'm going to introduce every single person that we're going to be listening listening to and I hope you can derive some value from at least one of the voice message that you're about to hear. Let's jump right in first up is at Jemma the creative co on instagram. She's going to teach us how to prove less implant more.

"That's very different than in entitled leader who spends time externalizing blame. They are masters add pointing their fingers at this went wrong because so and so wasn't fully on board because I didn't have enough for the right resources because my budget was pulled because this team player can show up and so they are they excel at not being accountable at not taking ownership floor war the problems when they go wrong and instead look externally good morning good afternoon good night night. My name is Robert John Boyle. I'm the host of the RJB audio experience in this episode is about entitlement when I first started getting into Gary Vain Chuck's content. One quote really stood out to me and that is entitlement is poison. This is something that Gary Talks about religiously. He talks about it all the time time and much more frequently in the past two years specifically and what it forced me to do was to look inward. I am someone who comes from a wealthy community. I am someone someone who is an only child. I am someone who feels that he is talented very ambitious but also has a good deal of entitlement that comes along with all of that and I resolved at some point this past summer to start working to unwind that to start eliminating entitlement from my mindset over the course up several years so what I decided to do was just do some google searching. I started looking up content. I started reading articles reading the previews of books books. seen what people were posting on social media about this concept and that is how I came across a Forbes article written by our guest Cindy Waller Cindy Cindy Waller wrote an article called why entitlement is a leadership derail or and I really connected with the article and made a lot of sense I saw a lot of myself in it and I wanted to have her on the podcast we could talk about entitlement and how people who feel like they are entitled can start to unwind that and eliminate laminate that from their mindset so that's exactly what this is going to be. We're going to talk about what Cindy does. We're GONNA talk about why she wrote the article. We're going to talk about the article but most importantly shortly we're going to talk about a few of the concepts that Cindy recommends to people who feel like they are entitled about how exactly they can go about strategizing and using tactics tactics to unwind that and become better listeners for example better collaborators to become less arrogant the kind of things that can really derail relationships ups and personal and professional success so that's what this episode is. I hope you enjoy it and Cindy. Why don't we start by you. Just telling the audience what it is that you do. I'm a leadership development consultant. I've been in.

I think these are all exciting <hes> vehicles in the area of and <hes> technology alsi for sure and in turn up in terms of you know the leadership. That's required excites me because these are our leaders who do have a compelling vision. See the world in a very different way <hes> they are changing agency are entrepreneurial will enter highly passionate about <hes> impact that they can have on the world and making the world a better place from a first world all to developing countries so when i work with those leaders <hes> they are very <unk> engaging because they have an intense commitment it to raising the bar or very excited about what they can do when they were able to be creative and think out of the box very good and i think <hes> it's gonna take a lot of aspirational leaders to get us to that point where we are in a world of driverless cars goods not just about the technology has also bow dealing with government regulation and dealing with you know <hes> you know society's taboos around getting into a car without a driver so <hes> i think it's going to be a very interesting decade <hes> to watch that unfold one question that i'd like to ask is let's see how oh wow i it just kind of disappeared from my mind. I know what it is. <hes> your we talked before <hes> we started this interview about. Some of the content plays that you're you're thinking about making your own career. Could you talk to me about the next two to three years. What new things that you're trying to do with your own coaching business. What new technologies and modalities you're interested in for sure so my point of view the further reach the wider reach the greater reach that i have the better because is i think very few of us understand what great leadership is about for some people they come by it naturally and it is intuitive and they excel it were others if they are fortunate to have had a good mentor a great leader than they can learn learn bias militias or more formally by the coaching that they received but if you think about how we advance within our own career all of us start off as individual contributors if you do a good job if you are process oriented if you deliver on time within budget then then you will be rewarded and then you move up the ranks and then suddenly you're a people manager so very few people managers the jurors have had training on how to be a people manager now they need to figure out how to motivate people what drives them and if you have up a team of anywhere from four to six six to eight individuals then you need to understand that not everybody is motivated by the same thing and and so by being able to reach a wider audience through different social media from my point of view would help you leaders new leaders <hes> soon to be leaders. <hes> who are people managers really acquire skills more more quickly more efficiently and likely have less misteps in their career and ultimately allow the organization to <hes> have better returns increase their profit margins because that's what the motivation is of not all most organizations and <hes> i really want to be able to to spread that message wider in specifically the point about people managers understanding that the people that they manage are all motivated by different things. Some people want money. Some people want more work life balance some people one more of a challenge and you really have to have those individual conversations to understand what it is that each person wants so you you know if someone is interested in connecting with you are learning more about you. Where could they find you. Wear on social media <hes> personal websites just like a plug a little bit about where people can find you on the internet so they can access. If they search my name they can find me on my website which is cindy waller dot com <hes> <hes> as well they can find me on my twitter handle at cindy waller <hes> and if they're interested in some of the thought leadership as you mentioned the very beginning robert robert of this podcast they can find me <hes> as a frequent writer on forbes huffington post ceo magazine <hes> and many other publications and access some of my thoughts as well <hes> i post regularly linked in and it could access <hes> some of my thinking in perspective.

Tell me more about that. I i heard you say this. What do you think about this. It's just a really really easy way to start turning on the active listening part of your brain and show people that you're actually interested in what they had to say and not just waiting for them to finish that you can add your own two cents on whatever it is that you're talking about anyway time for me to plug some of the other things that i do if you are interested that in me and my content please check me out on linked in go search robert john boyle.

The know what you're about to hear a voice message from Maya Angelou, she's going to be talking about her single free my mind, the first single off her latest EP emotions. The song is all about a cluttered mind in specifically the emotions in life events that lead to a cluttered mine. That's when my is going to be talking about in this voice message. Thanks for being here. Thanks for being a part of fade in the Robert John Boyle show. So I have the free my mind record in sensually. I just wanted to create a song where I can simply express myself. Everybody I feel like has gone through a period of time, where like their mind is being cluttered in his like he just want to be free from at all is like too much too much on the mind to where like, you know, you just want to declutter in so like, that's where free my mind come from. It's just like battling with mental health in depression, anxiety, things like that. It's like it's a constant battle with the mind, you know, in this song in particular, it is it has a lot of pain in from the beginning of the song to the end. Like, when I was writing the song, and I, I heard the beat of that those homes that you hear in the beginning this. That's all I had MS mama was so cluttered is just like I couldn't even think of the words to go with the song, but I knew I was going to call the song free my mind. And it took me about a month to complete the song because my mind was so cluttered, but it was just like one of the most unissons that I've ever written just coming from a personal place of being hurt in this just trying to figure out self in, you know, going through the pressures of, you know, dealing with substances to make you feel okay in just different things like that is, is what I talk about in the song and just wanting to be free from all of that this whole imperial. Yeah. Like this is very emotional song. I feel like a lot of people can relate to it. Very personal personal track. And is the is the first joint awful. My EP motions on any motions in itself is, is a very emotional project.

"Yeah. Welcome back to the robber. John Boyle show in a special episode coming back from the archives in episode of voice. I haven't done an episode of voice in a very long time on kind of changing the format a little bit. Just because I need something to do on Wednesday, you know, wanna make the podcast every single day. And this is an opportunity for me to share a different part of my life around gets talked about as much with you all. So basically the format as I'm going to be sharing two to three news items from the voice, I industry to things that I think are really relevant to things that I think are very important and the just getting give my two cents. My perspective on what's going on in this industry and also given update on some of the skills that I'm building and some of the things I'm trying to make happen within this industry myself. So let's get going. We're gonna start with Google's integration with ways. So obviously, you have Google maps you have ways. I did not know that Google owned ways Google actually. Weighs twenty thirteen in, even though these two apps are navigation competitors. They're owned by the same company obviously go maps has had Google assistant integration for awhile, but very recently Google added, Google assistant integration, two ways. So what does that mean means that anything that you can do with ways with your thumbs? You can now do the Google assistant with your voice. You can report traffic, you can ask for traffic. You can, you know, set your destination you can ask for coffee shops near you. You can even integrate with Spotify to through the ways app play music in your car while you're driving. And this is all very exciting because one of the things that I'm most passionate about is the demise of texting and driving because of the voice, I industry, you know, so many people have gotten into car accident so many people have died or been injured because someone was checking their Email checking taxed looking through social media or China change the music on their phone. And so they had to look away from the r-. Owed look at their device in bad things happen. What's amazing about this voice integration though, is now you can say, hey Google. What's my Email Google? Check my reminders. Hey google. Enter this address. Hey Google open. Spotify play the song. Hey Google Google Google. Never have to look away from the road to make something happen when you're driving in that is really really important talking and driving is going to save so many so many lives in this Google assistant integration with ways is going to bring that capability to a lot of people because ways is a very, very, very popular Apso. This is a new very exciting development that I wanted to share. Next is Alexa conversations. This is something that Amazon billed at their remarks conference last week and basically, it's a new development framework for developers. So for those of you that don't know let me just give you a very, very, very basic idea of a developer of an Alexa skill has to do, obviously, you have to input prompts Alexa, will say something to a user, what would you like to do today than the user has to respond to that prompt? I wanna go bolting and then at the end in the voice app, there has to be intense and actions that will allow the user to do that thing that they want to do. And so the developer has to do all three of those things handle, the prompts the utterances from the users and then the intense on the other side to make the action into a reality. What Alexa conversations does is it simplifies the middle instead of the developer having to figure out because unlike a mobile app, which just has. Buttons that people can press with voice hap-, a user could literally say anything in response to a prop a prompt, especially an open ended, prompts, developers have to be very, very diligent in making sure that every type of utterance that use could respond is accounted force that the boys app doesn't break. What Alexa conversations does is it uses machine learning neural networks, all those things you read about in articles to simplify this process for the developers? They have to write less lines of code us. Less training data and develop skills in less time. Basically, does that middle part for them so that the developer can just worry about the prompts. And what happens after the user response to a prompt in the way that they want to. So what's really interesting to me about Alexa conversations is not only reduced amount of time, but the way the Amazon trying to use it because Amazon Alexa conversations rather is also going to increase. Discover ability think about what's going to happen, when someone a couple goes to Alexa and says, okay we. Wanna go out for the night, which means that we need an Uber to get to where we're gonna go. We wanna make dessert dinner reservations. We wanna make movie recommendations. And maybe wanna tell our friends about what we're doing all in one conversation with Alexa. So currently if you wanted to make that happen, you would really have to go to four separate voice apps or skills to really make that happen. You'd have to open. You'd have to open something like open table. You'd have to open something like fandango. And then you have to open some type of social media voice app. What Alexa wants to do is to really reduce that to one conversation with Alexa, where you don't even know what skill you're interacting with? So, hey Alexa, we want to go out, okay? What's the address of the place, you're going to I'll get you an Uber? That's a conversation and the conversation continues. Okay. Where would you like to eat, we'd like to eat at so-and-so restaurant? Okay. I met a reservation for you. Let's get your movie tickets now on and on. And on the conversation until all of the action items are complete. Needed. This is the type of flow in seamless conversation that Amazon is trying to create with Alexa, which in my opinion is, is actually really not good for developers, because if I'm open table, if I'm Ben dangle, my app might be used without the user, even knowing it. There's no brand recognition brand awareness, or brand, loyalty being developed in these conversations until that's something that I think developers really need to think about pretty deeply when they think about are we going to build our stills with Alexa conversations? This is a framework that is not really available yet. Developers can apply to become a part of it. But this is going to be a very slow rollout because Amazon wants to understand if developers, like it, if it's going to catch on. And if this is something that they're going to put money behind going into the future. In other news, I'm unveiling my own Alexa, scale called make positively louder hopefully within the next week if not in the next two weeks. The skills already in the skill store, but currently you can't shuffle the entire collection of voice messages that I can provide you have to say election next every single time, which is pretty annoying. So basically, in the new version, I figured out how to make it so that someone can just shuffle the entire collection. I also allow people to search for certain audio by category. Family gratitude health work, etc. That's really exciting. Basically the way the skill works as you say Alexa, make positively louder and then you can either choose the shuffle the entire collection or choose one of the specific collections. And then basically what I'm going to be working on this week is really trying to make sure that, you know, people can say next previous star over pause resume, and everything works, making sure that everything is in queued properly, which is a whole is a whole. Mess at the moment. But I'm getting there, slowly and also added in a bunch of audio so that you don't just hear Alexa, talking the whole time, but there's actually voice messages from myself, giving you directions. Because I found from my own experience that the skills to I like to interact with the most have human voice, and you don't actually hear Alexa, that often. So that's what I'm working on right now. Hopefully will be done developing that within the next week. And then over the weekend, I can submit to the skill story, and everything is good. It'll be in the it'll be in the skill store for people to download so hopefully by this time next week, I can tell you that is available and you can submit some be back to me. So that's what I'm working on right now. Hey guys, thank you so much for listening. If you are someone who is interested in voice voice. I technology Alexa, Google Serey Bixby, all of these things.

Welcome back to the Robert John Boyle show in another episode of fade, today, we welcome to poppy a Toronto based music artists who's going to be talking about his first ever acoustic single beneath her heart. I hope you enjoy. Hey guys, she poppy here. So beneath their heart was just like very new types onto me was an acoustic Kanazawa, and I'd never really tried that before I was more used to either chop arm, be even a little bit of EDM here and there, but I was always really into singing, I always really enjoyed playing the piano, and I kinda just wanted to try that John music. I wrote it about a year and a half ago when I was going into my first year university, and I guess it was a huge change for me and, you know, a little bit writing about like some shaky does. But yeah, just it was. You know it's about someone. It's about someone you love and. I wrote the song, and you can kinda just read your own meaning into the words if you like I like to leave the song, for inter retations of what the viewer really sees what they hear because one person here is might be different from another and I like to leave that up to the person who's listening to it to decide, you know what the main essence of the song is and what it means to them, but very fun. According, this type of music, I saw a good response. And a lot of people told me to keep going with this type of music. So for the summer, I'm mainly looking at doing summer songs, acoustic songs just kind of vibe because if it's the season. Well, but comes temper, some of the, you know, more dark emo-, maybe rob kinda shit. We'll come back and that's basically it. So he'll be guys. Enjoy the song, go stream heart.

Those are related this short voice message but a really interesting one he's going to be talking about the song obviously the process of creating the song, he's also going to give us a metaphor for why he thinks to music is like the universe in my songs are like rooms. So definitely stay tuned for that enjoy. This is the ball bay talking about his song cheese, steak special. Hey, what's going on this day talk a little bit about my new song? She steak special produced by my guy, pal Patrick Feliciano. So this all kind of came about, while working on really several times, it was like a little pack that we were kinda get into and everything was produced by patchy. And we were kind of all over the place. And when this song came on, we, we understood like what we needed to do. It was it became clear is one of those things where you're not always compare music to the universe. Right. Where it's ever growing, and expanding there's no limits. There's no up now. Let the right. There's no rules. It's just wide open space, but songs always compared songs to specific rooms. Right. So if you step into a room and there's open heart surgery going on that may not be the room where you wanna yell kicking screaming flip shit over. But if you step into a room where there is trampolines all over the place. You know that, that might be room where you can kinda show off. Yeah. Yeah. Acrobatic skills, and prowls and stuff like that. So we Patrick gave me this beat it became clear to me, like, all right. This is a space for me to really let loose and really let go, and I kind of took that q to just be as loud as proud as arrogant is possibly could. And I did my best to kinda creatively connected to things that I understood things that were mostly media in my space and things that are truthfully. Love and believe in, in really it all comes down to community, the city that I stay, you know, obviously our signature salads and everything like that.

"Yeah. Hello. Hello. Hello, happy Saturday in welcome to another episode of voice on the Robert John Boyle show today, we are talking about Spotify new ad product of Spotify is slowly going to start releasing ads on the platform for people who have the microphone enabled in the bottom right corner. Basically, what will happen is while you're listening to music at a certain point you may receive an ad on either for Spotify original podcast or for a playlist created by brands that are working with Spotify in the way, it works is it's basic radio ad, which at the end allows you the option to interface with the assistant on Spotify platform in say play now to then play the podcast or the playlist which has been advertised to you. I think is really interesting, and I wanted to bring some people onto get their thoughts and their perspective on this issue. So I decided to get Alexandra Kirkland, she's a partnership manager at Jetson, which is a voice first calmer. Platform platform, and Scott Westwater who is the co founder, leave voice strategist of pragmatic digital. You're going to be hearing from Alexandra in Scott. And then I'm going to leave my own two cents for you. Let's jump right in regarding the voice ads through now on Spotify. I think that they will be perceived by consumers in various ways. So my opinion the ones who enjoy new experiences, of course, are going to think it's cool in those are usually resistant to new technology interactions will push back. I that's just the spectrum of consumer behavior in relation to a new advertising channel. But I think over time people will get used to it and start to adopt it so with that said, I think that this will drive voice, adoption and brand engagement overall. And I do believe that the more and more that we enable. Able consumers to interact using voice. It's gonna help us push his revolution. Of course, as we learn how this new interaction is received. We will shape the experience to be more favorable and personalized for the consumer. Do you think there will be some initial curiosity and use of Spotify ad format? Nearly think about it. It's not much of a departure from the thirty second or sixty second radio commercial. We're all familiar with tree can respond to the call to action at the very end launches something beyond that. It's not very different the thing that most people forget is interactive ad formats have been around for a while now certain cable boxes allow you to have an enhanced commercial experience NEW GUINEA requests, more information from apple also tried to create interactive ad format called I add that was offensively minneap contain within their mobile banner ads. It was around for about six years, but was shut down in two thousand sixteen due to lack of interest from advertisers. So right now, we're bit obsessed with how advertising are going to play out in voice our ad formats evolve. What is and isn't an ad and finally who gets paid for that ad that Alexa, Google home gives you most of us are still thinking of advertising in the context of what was not what will be possible as Ed formats get worked out by various media, companies advertisers. We better serve to invest time in capital in creating voice experiences. The provide valuable and useful information around their product or service insure your answering your audience's questions not pushing product as you build trust over time, you can build and couponing free trials and purchase direct within that experience. I think the future of advertising look vastly different from the current model. Hyper personalization and recommendations based on location and powered by will become commonplace. Think others like you purchase this, but on steroids in this new world path to purchase becomes friction Lewis and. Way. More one to one. Alexandra Scott, thank you both for taking the time to submit and sharing your perspectives. With me I'd like to build off of what each of them said. I the personalization bit from Alexandra. I think personalization is key in this kind of format because we don't wanna feel like these ads are interrupting us or taking time away. From us us only that they are providing value, for instance, I really should only be receiving recommendations for podcast or playlists based on data like people who listen to the Joe, but in podcast also listened to this people who like to listen to John belly on also listened to this. Spotify has all the data on what I'm listening to. I really should only be recommended and give it adds based on things that I may be interested in watching. It's actually kind of an extension of what? Spotify already does there's already so much recommendation within the platform. Now spotify's in a sense saving me time by explain to me with thirty second radio ad why? I may be interested in a certain thing. And then giving me the opportunity to play immediately while I'm listening to other things. I also really liked what Scott said how this will eventually evolve from thirty second radio ad to something much more interactive and much more personalized of something that I could definitely foresee is more of a conversation a natural conversation with the assistant. Hey, you're listening to Jon Bellion. Are you interested in other artists? Yes, here or some other artists that I found would you like to listen. Yes. It could get much more complicated than that the adoption of the combination of the personalization with the ability to interface with an assistant to the assistant can get a sense of whether I even want to be sold to at that moment. What's really amazing about that is I may be a mind state where I don't wanna be interrupted. But actually, maybe in a mind state where I'm bored, and I would actually like the assistant to give me something to satiate my desire to be entertained. You know? So those are some of the I have about this. If you are interested in joining the conversation, I'd love for you to hit me up on Twitter at Robert J Boyle underscore at Robert J Boyle underscore and just tell me what you thought tell me what you thought of Alexander's response. Scott's response. My response. What do you think about all of these things all of these ideas that we presented with love to hear from you? All right. Thank you so much for listening. Please enjoy the rest of your Saturday, and you will speak again tomorrow. Case.

"Friends says we. Giant. Podcast. What's good happy? Friday. Welcome to the robber John Boyle show in another episode of fade today on the show, we have perk. He's going to be talking about his single hear me out. And what I love about this show is that we get to really understand some of the detail. Some of the nuances underneath the song in the process of how it was made. Specifically in this voice message perk is going to be talking about how he was able to channel some of the energy from one of his pass relationships and use that as a leering in the course, and he's going to give us some insight into what it actually means. And how it's related to one of the relationships. He had in the past. We also get to understand how bricky who is featured on this song how perk in bricky were able to link up and get on the song and how that's related to the way he wants to give back to the city of New Orleans. So a lot of really interesting content in this four minute voice message. Let's jump right in and I hope. Hope you enjoy. Where do I start making the song himmy out by Burkey? Featuring me that song was originally supposed to be a song that was supposed to be from second album. And I was making home and to be honest with you it wasn't supposed to be as fast. Supposed to be real slow. I wanted to go with a real Rb vibe real slow down, you know, nice rby type feel and the words opposed to be thinking about the past me reminisce in on those post to be that was supposed to be the main course, and I had a had to channel you know, I had the channels into some past events. So I challenged into next girlfriend of mine that I you know, I really have feelings for and really really admired at the time. And I remember myself reminiscent over those times, and I just wanted to bring that feeling alive again for those who might have felt like that at this time. I kinda even throw a little head out there of who it might be. So she know exactly who I'm talking to. And that was in a time. When I said a thing I can't sleep. I'm up at one twelve one twelve is actually a reference to her birthday. So she was born January twelfth. And that's when that's that's the the signal. Let are no hate. I song was about you. And so making that song I finally got down to a man, I I made I made the track, and I had I was listening to it. And I had did the course and everything I knocked everything down. And I was thinking I was like, you know, I I need to not be so selfish. And maybe like Senate song to somebody who could use it. 'cause I really wanna help my city out. You know, I feel like if it's just me making great music, and there's no attention on the city. There's just attention on meat, but I want attention to come towards the city of New Orleans. And not so much just me. So in order for me to do that. I'm really good producer. I'm really good engineer. So I need to be able to help people who who who are really good. You know, what I'm saying bring that same attention to them and make sure that people like their music as well. And then it also helped me out too because bricky has a lot of followers. She has a strong fan base. A lot of people really jump off a whip break, you say man, bricky said, I'm doing this. Then people she you can guarantee a larger number of people going to do it too. So that was really doping because she helped me out in a way to get people to like kind of pay attention to me, and I have made us song called birds in the sky off my first album substance may that song, and I heard her rapping to it over Instagram like the little the tail end of it. She started rapid to it. And I was like a she really riding. She you know, she Bob into it. And you know, it was a boss Phil so say, you know, what let me speed this. Song up bows it out. You know what I'm saying? And like Senator bricky, and I sent the tour when I sent it tour immediately. You know, she just immediately was like, I like it. I love it. You know what I'm saying? I'm coming through. I'm going to do it. You know, when when you bailable I'm like, I'm in the studio right now when you leave I'm like probably gonna leave some time around eight o'clock, nine o'clock tonight. She was like all right. A MoMA way. She come there. She not get out. It was a rat from there. I think I had one more thing to do when she when I sent the tour. I mixed it in everything right there on the spot. And then I sent it tour, and she was saying that she wanted me to edited a little bit more clean it up. Just a little bit more at cleaned it up for just a little bit more said the back tour. She says she liked it. It was perfect. And we went from it. We went from there man and ever since then, you know, people just been vob into it. You know, they'd been liking it. We've been getting a good feedback. We did jazz festival woolens. You know, they man is just going good. So yeah, that's the store. Say.

"Sometimes we have to folds time. Have what is not a good thing? Okay, grabby host. How are we do? They'll just see. Right. There's this holiday shin right now, there's connotation with old people where this big hole scared of big brother situation where of global Alexa, electoral does listening. Well, I'm sure your that a lot of what you say about that. So a few things come to mind. You know, I think we as humans will trade convenience for privacy or trade privacy for being excuse me. So a lot of people are really concerned with people listening. Alexa, listening to you while you're having your conversations and whatnot. And that's a real worry. Alexa, Google apple, you know. They can hear what's happening. That's how it works. It has to always be listening. So that when you say the white word, it'll do things my retort is always that. You're not really thinking about the the the how Vance the skills are gonna be and how well gonna be able to help you with your day. So for instance, I wake up I say, hey, Alexa, low I need to do today tells you all your reminders, Alexa, calling while you're brushing your teeth. Hey, alexa. Call me, my Lewer realized that your truth brush, your out of toothpicks less. Choose goes a lesson. I need something for breakfast breakfast shows up while you're getting. Uber. Like all of these things that saves us time that you have to use your thumbs to do like, I think that level of convenience is so underrated people tell me, I'm never gonna get in Alexa. It's kind of like when people say, I'm never gonna text or I'm not gonna use GPS because I don't want apple Google to know where I am those kinds of things. However, there are people in the world who don't have smartphones. I think are gonna be people in the world. Just don't get Alexa, Google, you know, I think are going to be people who as technology continues to advance just decide that I'm good. And that's fine. That's do you. There are people who still call the phones types. But like you're telling me if I'm using my phone for ways and ordering through reads like an Amazon prime inaugural location. We got over that one pretty quick like the same privacy. Didn't it's happening right now. I don't want them listening to me. But they know where you are in before in twenty ten nine eight seven having a conversation about is. Okay. The apple Google nowhere. I animal we don't really care about that as much now. Well, that's an interesting aspect of voice. I feel I could sit here with you for an hour. Yeah. Like, we get down keep flaw of society continued to fan of profession events tours general, and I think yours is really important to tell because a lot of young people. That's like that's my target audience. I want you'll understand that they can do anything. They want to do they need to be strategic. And then this thing about it. But they can really do whatever they want to do. And that's why we're talking about like extra pressures environmental pressures yet. That's why you're actually quite processes because you're you're young and people that like your age think the way that you do and that's the whole point. We're just trying to get people to think, you're right. I think a lot of if I could leave for young, let's list athlete. We're talking to young people 'cause I think super important if I could the young people with anything it's like twenty to thirty is an amazing time to try things if you don't know what you want to. Be. I think there's a lot of pressure that parents and just older people in general put on young twenty to thirty year olds. Like, oh, what are you doing with your life? Have you figured it out yet like well career path or you on. And I think that's the wrong mindset. If you really think that you're gonna live for a long time, which I think most of us are, you know? As long as nothing bad happens. Most of us are gonna live for pretty long time. And so twenty to thirty two seems like the best time to try things to do lots of jobs ticket vantage of your time to try anything's possible in don't let your aunt Hussein. Oh, why don't you know what you're doing with your life yet? Vince, you that you shouldn't try that thing. I love the. I just sat down with someone who designed watches for living has ever huge.

"Somebody is always watching now. I want you to understand the following. Somebody is always watching. Now, there is no interaction that you're having ever again that is just between you and that person. And let me tell you why I want you to think this way though, that may be true, right? Because it becomes he said she said though, that may be true. If you switch and live, the mindset that I've been living for the last seven years, I really believe that a lot of good things will happen for you. If you believe that every single thing that you do is on the record. You'll be stunned by how your behavioral changes, if you actually believe that every single thing you do is actually being documented is actually going to be recorded is actually being watched a miraculous thing happens you change your behavior. Not that you go from being a dick to being phenomenal. It just an I'm telling you cause I've been living in for the last decade. You just start sliding every so often a little bit towards a better place. And it's. Starts changing your behavior. And what happens is you start? Having momentum of positivity. There are a lot of thoughts that I have when I listen to this clip, but I'm going to keep them to only the two main ones that stick out number one. I think this is actually much more real impractical than Gary. Let's on when you think about what our future could potentially look like with cameras being implanted into almost every artifice in our society and people walking around with smart glasses or recording their lives. It's actually much more real than we might think that all of our actions are in some way being documented based on all of the technology that we have around us. And the fact that the internet is now here in conjunction with this technology means is there's absolutely nowhere to hide in that people are going to be watching it every single step. So I actually think that this idea that everything you doing is being documented or watched actually much more real and practical than people may like to think number two. And this is the important part is. It's more about the mindset, and what happens when you actually believe this and then start to change your behavior. If you actually think that everything is being documented than you realize that you now are accountable for every single action. You take you now may have to answer for every single thing that you do. And if you keep that ever present in your mind, it changes your behavior because you want to be able to defend or at least a polled or be proud of whatever ends up being documented later. It's about leaving a legacy. This is a really really interesting idea one that I had not really explored fully it's kind of similar to what happens when you're in a restroom. You know, I'm sure a lot of men listening to this will agree that when you're in a restroom by yourself a lot of times, you'll just leave without washing your hands. But if someone else's bear, there's now an incentive or more of a push to wash your hands and do the decent thing. It's really interesting. What happens when you allow that to spread to all of your behavior? Do we start doing the right thing that they would be proud of? We know that everything is being documented. I don't know a lot of really interesting ideas to throw out here just wanted to make sure that you all heard this. So that you can think about this yourself if you have any thoughts or ideas or surveys that you'd like to share with me definitely hit me up on Twitter at Robert J Boyle underscore of love to hear what you have to say. All right. Enjoy the rest of your day. And thanks for listening.
