Fresh update on "brendan" discussed on This Week
"Of TJ banks and Marshalls target Kohl's Macy's raw star so before we get to some of the specifics Brendan, how is the American consumer holding up? I think the after that is so, so what you've seen so far is you've seen pretty steady even sometimes robust overall spending, but if you break that down what you're seeing is a consumer that has increasingly under a lot of stress. And what that is causing is a situation where people are being forced to spend a lot more on essentials, foods, fuel, things like that. And that's leaving a lot less money left over for discretionary goods. And that's emerged as a big problem for Walmart target. Pretty much all retailers, and I think that with the earnings reports coming out the next week and also after that, we should get a lot more insight into how these companies think the consumer will hold up. The rest of the year will get more about the back to school shopping season and probably get their kind of the retailers first predictions about the holiday rush at the end of the year. We're already up to that. Yeah, we're already there. I mean, of course, for a lot of these retailers, they've been planning for that since February, literally. But it's increasingly upon us last year that holiday season started pretty early because of all the supply change disruptions. People were out shopping earlier than usual. And we'll see what happens this year. I think the question boils down to whether retail spending is going to end up being a lot weaker after two very strong years during the pandemic. Okay. We're still buying stuff, but it's just the stuff that's lower margin. I mean, I have to buy groceries. I got to eat. But maybe I'm not going to spend by a TV or something like that. Yeah, that's exactly right. So if you look at that through the prism of Walmart target, what that means is that people are spending a lot more on groceries, which those companies make less money off of. They make more money from general merchandise sales, like clothing, electronics, home goods. And they're selling a lot less of those more profitable items. And a lot more of the low margin items. And so if you take a company like Walmart, they actually, they're actually doing fine from a revenue perspective. They actually raised their revenue forecast a little bit less month. But since they're selling more of their less profitable stuff, their groceries, it's really hurting profit and it's also causing them to mark down a lot of items, which further erodes their profit margins. But that's not to say that they're cutting all prices. I think what they're doing is basically reducing the price any place they can. But in some categories, the sales just aren't there until they're having to cut prices. Okay, well, that leads me to the next question. As far as the inventories are the inventories of these places bloated? Yes. Very much so. Okay, so why wouldn't they automatically have to discount then, right? Well, that's what they're doing to a certain extent. And the mystery is that we don't know exactly what their inventories are made up of. But if you imagine the inventories as being a little bit overweighted towards discretionary goods, they thought they could sell earlier this year. That's what they're having to mark down more and more aggressively. And we're talking about clothing. We're talking about kitchen appliances. We're talking about patio furniture. All that stuff that people were stocking up on during the pandemic. You know, the retailers knew that spending was going to tail off on those categories. But what they miss judged is just how fast that would happen. But what they're not doing is they're not discounting the essential goods that people are increasingly using their paychecks to buy. Do these places, they have their own credit cards, and the reason I ask, does that tell us much about how much debt is being racked up by their customers, whether they're paying off those credit card balances? Yes, a lot of them do targets got its own credit card, a lot of the department stores have their own credit cards, the HomeGoods stores. And I think what you're seeing there is that spending has been very strong and savings had been going up a lot during the pandemic in large part because of the government stimulus programs and also because people were not going out as much. I think what you're seeing now is that people are increasingly kind of blowing through those savings, they've got less of a cushion and that's really starting to eat into what they're able to actually spend at stores and sort of causing this overhang on

"A sign this week that historically high inflation may be cooling off the latest consumer price index came in lower than expected at 8 and a half percent, but the latest earnings reports from the biggest consumer names tell a more complicated story. Their prices are going up a lot, but their volumes are going down. That's Bloomberg, big box retail reporter, Brendan case. What? I think you're starting to see there is just the kind of demand destruction from rising prices. A sign of stagflation, the case says is showing up in earnings from PepsiCo, Clorox, Conagra Brands, and Kraft Heinz, companies that could hardly keep up with demand during the pandemic. He says executives aren't pushing the panic button about slower growth, at least not right away. The decline in the unit volumes is not really serious enough yet for companies to start saying, wow, this is going to be a big problem for us. You could start seeing that next year. But Kay says companies are betting the economy will settle down and more of that consumer demand will return. From the Bloomberg newsroom, I'm Nathan Hager on WTO.

Brendan O'Neill's Advice for Getting Involved With Issues That Matter
"About the average person that the taxpayer, the citizen, the person that listens to the brand and O'Neill show? Do you give them advice? Because for me, it's the same thing every single day, I say, get involved politically. It's sexy to be a senator. It's sexy to be a president. The thing that really matters is to do what my wife did last week, where she handed in her application to run for the board of the local community center. That's where politics really, you know, to use that Catholic phrase of subsidiarity. It is all local. What advice do you give to people who are fed up don't have a podcast but want to help? Yeah, I agree. I think getting involved at any level is always a very good thing to do. And one thing I've been inspired by over the past year is the parents revolted in America where you have all these parents groups or individual parents going to PTA meetings and school meetings and saying, look, stop teaching our kids about critical race theory. Stop indoctrinating our children into transgender ideology or identity politics. We don't want it. And I think that parental pushback has been a model in some ways of how ordinary people can get involved in these kinds of issues and can make a real difference. I think one of the problems in the UK is that there were so much pushback from the chattering classes against Brexit that people thought, well, you know, we voted for change and it looks like it's not going to happen, and it took 6 years for it to actually happen. So people started to lose faith, but I think over the past few months, as we've come out of lockdown, as we've rediscovered normal life and as we've seen war erupted in Europe in a terrible, terrible way, I've heard lots of people having discussions about the need to be more serious about our nation's life and our community life. And I think people should try to do that in any way they can, including by getting involved at any level of influence and that they can do. And that's really, really important.
Brendan O'Neill: What We Need Is Skepticism, Not Cynicism
"The issue we have here is you can distrust things, but that means you need more critical thought, not less critical thought. Exactly right. And the way I see the problem is that what we need is skepticism, what we currently have is cynicism, and they are very different things. Is a very healthy worldview. I think we should be skeptical about all sorts of truths and orthodoxies. We should be skeptical about the idea that climate change is spells the end of the world, for example. We should be skeptical about the idea that the only way to deal with a global pandemic is to lock down ordinary people. We should always be skeptical of experts and we should ask questions of them, and we should say, listen, you need to justify this course of action because it's having a severe consequence for my life. But that's very different to being cynical and conspiratorial because skepticism is the enlightenment was fueled by skepticism by this questioning of authority, whereas cynicism is basically you shrug your shoulders, you say they're all evil, they're all wicked, everything they say is a lie, I will never trust anything in the newspapers again. And I'm just going to build my own view of how this world has come about and what are the real forces deciding what I can do in my life. So when you cross that line from being skeptical of authority towards being cynical of everything that you are told and every report in every newspaper, then I think in your, I think you're entering a dangerous territory where you actually open yourself up to new theories that are far crazier than anything that's coming even from our government.
Spiked Online's Brendan O'Neill on the State of Affairs in the UK
"He's Brendan O'Neal. He's with the superb platform spiked online dot com. Welcome back Brandon to America first. Yeah. Hi, Seth. It's a pleasure to be here always. So I could just talk about that one post on Instagram for the next hour. You're in the UK, you're fighting the good fight. Will you tell us clearly you're seeing this on your side of the pond? Here in America, it's the quote unquote conservatives, and it's weird. It's a lot of anonymous accounts. People who don't put their name to their social media account who are saying, people like gawker, whose dad actually escaped from a communist prison, he is somehow pro the global world order and controlled opposition. It looks like it's bad over there as well, Brendan, share, share with us the state of affairs. Oh, it's very bad here too. And I really do think, as I said in that post, I really do think that the pandemic has fried some people's brains. It's driven them completely mad. Now, on one level, I kind of understand, you know, lots of strange things happened during the lockdown, the lockdown itself was strange. Here in the UK, we had three or four lockdowns, was very severe, a complete suspension of civil liberties, and also the media wasn't always forthcoming with the truth and with all the facts in various different situations. We know, for example, that the lab leak theory was quite consciously suppressed. We know that there are certain things you are not allowed to say on social media or you risk being banned. We know that you could be thrown off social media and even arrested by the police for organizing a protest. So we've just been through a period in which people feel like they've been bullied and beaten up and lied

"Got here on your husband. So I actually have a liars idea for you. Oh, what? What you do is when you know the order he calls in the order, call the florist, go in, the friend of them and be like, here's my dilemma. Can you make me something completely different completely better, more to my tastes and deliberate? And then when my husband's like, it's different this year, be like, oh my God, I'm obsessed with it. I love this one. It's so cool that it's different this year. It'd be so crazy if I got a different one every year. Next year, do the same thing. Go into this place and be like, I want something new. And get in his head, start the pattern, take control of your own flowers. Way easier than just going to him directly. I mean, why not apply for a job at this floor? Then you can just intercept the call and just do your own and you're probably getting an employee discount. He's probably giving his credit card number over the phone, suddenly you're buying a bunch of things for yourself online. You could also have Photoshop and article that accuses hit the flower ship that he like of being racist. Unless he's a racist. Oh yeah. Well, then he's going to be doubling down. Whatever your husband does it like. They hate tools. This place hates tools. And then he'll have to go to a new place. This is an episode of home improvement. Welcome, look, you've gotten the exact little bit of medicine you needed. I think that this is going to solve all of your problems between you and your husband. Like Brendan was saying, I think it is time to open your relationship. Just open it wide open. Try it. You can be open to maybe you've got an your eye on the florist. And, you know, you got those nimble fingers, you know? I always smells of tulips and carnations. I think that's a good opportunity for both of you. Okay, Brendan, we did a perfect job. I feel great. And I've been in a hat, this entire time, which is so comforting. You look great. It's given me all a new, you know, new confidence that I'm gonna be able to march forward in the new year with I'll be able to pair this with my tunic, I'm basically just building a little treasure chest to take to the beach. Or to Palm Springs. What a brunch. Or to brunch or to brunch at in Palm Springs. Who's to say? I've had a wonderful time with you here. Thank you so much for being here. So great to chat, good to catch up, proud of you, happy for you. Thank you. Thank you for saying that. And listener, it's now time for you to find something to do for the next 7 days until the next episode comes out. I hope that you're not completely adrift without me. But if you are, you can always dial in an old episode. You can try to find where I live. You can do whatever you want. That's your life, and you've.

"I'm looking at a leg crusade box. I'm going to open it up and see what's happening inside here. What if it was an actual angry? I would be so mad. I would be very. I would be driving to your house with money to pay for it. Okay, we've got some tissue paper. Okay, now we're gonna. This is way more valuable than Microsoft. It's a beautiful, beautiful, blue hat. Kind of a women's hat. I'm gonna put this on. It's a sun hat. You can wear that to the beach. You could wear it to an Easter party. If you ever go to Cabo, you just go that thing on, protect the old skin. Tell me about this. That had seen many lives. But I feel like I'm going to tell you something. I have worn it before. This is not a new item. Okay. It feels broken in. I'm wearing it currently. Yeah, do you know Louis fertile? Of course. We love Louis. At one point, I had sort of like a calf hand brunch. And he wore it. And I've been trying to give it back to him for like three years. And every time he comes over to my house, and I'm like, what about your hat? He leaves without it because he doesn't want it. So this is a really originally Lewis hat. Oh yeah, that's Louis hat. Okay, interesting Lewis was on the podcast very early on. He gave me some board games. So in a way, he's now given me a hat. Well, I think I gave you a hat. Well, I think it smashes your eyes to the court to decide. I have blue eyes. It's gonna bring him out. Yeah, this is kind of a Robin's egg, blue hat. Okay, so you have to use it to lunch. Brunch. Yeah, I was gonna say lunch doesn't make a ton of sense for. And everyone wears a calf tan? Yeah, just something flowy doesn't have to be technically a caftan. People can wear a dress just of what did you wear a cafta? I would hope. Yes, of course, yeah. To my own, of course. Actually buy a captain and then I altered it to make it a little bit shorter and a little bit sluttier. Oh, interesting. So to knee level, above either a little bit above any level. Yeah. Now, on this very podcast, I've received what was presented as a caftan, but I'm pretty sure as a tunic. But you know, it's about hits about mid thigh. So is that kind of what you were dealing with that feels like a beach cover up? You know, like a woman would wear like with the hat that you're wearing like over her swimsuit. She walks down to the beach. But a beach cover up. There's got to be a better word for a beach cover up than a beach cover up. Huh. I think it's called a cover up. Just to cover up? Yeah. Certainly they're not calling them that in Paris. Well, there's no beach in Paris. Well, let's talk about the South of France. You know, down there, they're not saying cover ups. They're calling them. God only knows what. You know, in the pandemic, I took 9 months of French lessons every week twice a week with French speakers and I can't remember a goddamn thing. That can't possibly be true. Let's hear something you've learned. Now I won't do it. Two topel Brendon. Bridger. Brandon. Come live with me. And now did you have to pick a French name like you do in middle school? No, they did just call me Brendan. But I had three great teachers. There's a great place in silverlake. It's called cuckoo. It's on hyperion, highly recommend. Well, but you've just said that you'd learned nothing. Yeah, but it's something it's a must all you have to keep doing it, you know, right. And when you were taking the class, what was the endgame for you? Did you like at the end of this I'm going to go to France for a few months and make my way through the streets? I had this dream that I would become fluent enough that I could get an acting job on a French language show and flee America. This was the most delusional thing I've ever heard. You remember the pandemic? It was like the height of the Trump presidency and I was just ready to go. I was like, your brain was fried. Am I acting career was going really well at the time? And I was like, why couldn't I just learn French and just get out of here? I even at one point called my managers and was like, if you see, if you know any French agents, I'd love to talk to them. And they were like, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. I never knew anything about it. Because they knew that I wasn't well at the time. As far as I can tell, you didn't learn enough French to wash dishes. Let alone be the star of French television show. I think task is a play. That means I need a plate. Okay, well maybe you could do like half a dishwashing job then. The problem with my French lessons is that I always did this type of accent, and they were like, no, you don't have to do that. I actually disagree. I think you kind of do have to take on some level of character for people to buy into you speaking another language. Because the tonally, it doesn't make like an American accent tone. Doesn't make sense for a French tone. So I think taking on whatever you were just doing holding a cigarette with a scarf around. That's fine. When I went to Paris, I didn't speak any French. This was like three or four years ago. And I would find myself ordering stuff and just being like, I would like a coffee. Like I was making fun of them. But I was really just trying to be more understood. Well, speaking English, by trying to speak, like, they speak English. That is mortified. Yeah, it should be arrested. We were in Paris a few years ago, and we were at a restaurant. We entered a restaurant slash bar and asked my boyfriend to ask, could we see a menu? And this extremely rude drunk French woman called from across the restaurant and then you want to see a menu. And we just turned around and walked out, both just humiliated by this one. By the end of my 6 or 7 day in Paris, I was terrified to even go into a restaurant. Because I was traveling alone, kind of finding myself. And I've been marked by enough waiters or had my eyes rolled at me enough times that I was like, you know, I'm just going to do Postmates. How long are you there for? I was there for two weeks. Okay. And were you in just Paris? I was in Europe from Paris, London, Berlin, Tuscany, realm, Budapest can. That's a lot of traveling to do alone. Yeah, I mean, I had friends in different cities and stuff and overlapped with different friends who were traveling. But I was like in the middle of a nervous breakdown and just wanted escaping once again. All right, it's always this escape to Europe with you. Eventually it's going to hold. You feel like the third time it's going to really stick and you're going to be somewhere in Europe. A lot of Americans just go there and never come back. They become an expat.

The Delightfully Deranged Ms. Pak-Man Is Back With “Ms. Pak-Man: Breakout!”
"May be in the waning days of summer. But they're still plenty to do and as we do most fridays. We are getting some recommendations for arts and culture events. This weekend brendan kiley. Covers arts and culture for the seattle times. Brendan welcome back. Hi thanks so much for having great to have you okay. Your first pick is for a campy lounge show we like camps and we like lounge so tell us more about this right so it's called. Mrs pacman breakout. It's at the west hall of the century ballroom on capitol hill and it runs Thursday through sunday and The character is based on the iconic eighties video game character. Miss pacman by this fantastic comedy actor. Scott shoemaker who anthropomorphized her But made her sort of a bitter and angry trainwreck. Oh that's hilarious brennan. I used to ride miss pacman for like forty five minutes on a single quarter. I'm giving myself away there. But i want i which she can't be a train wreck. She's miss pacman. Well i'm impressed by your video. Game skills But yeah the ideas that she peaks in the eighties and has been cratering ever since and now. She's trying to resuscitate her career as a lounge act. But she's a mess you know she sings. She dances sometimes begrudgingly. But what she really wants to do. Is tell us confessional stories about her divorce in her pill problems her affairs her wreckage and there is a dose of schadenfreude in there which makes it feel like a bit of a guilty pleasure but his entertaining is that is. There's something else going on here. Who was all about cruelty and making fun of her. The show wouldn't work You know there's something relatable about her and her frustration with the world. I think if you ever feel like your life has been one long blooper reel or people aren't taking you seriously as you like. You have a friend in miss pacman.

It's a part of it and it's unconscious so idea. I don't know if it was purposeful but i can't say that it's not a part of it at all because it happens too far too often especially on reality television for me to say that you know that had nothing to do with it i do like i said on tuesday think the situations are vastly different. Like i think. Just send you as way more hurt by chris and saw future with chris. I don't think. Natasha saw future with brendan at all. And so i think she wanted to try and talk yourself into it. She wanted to but boy. Have i done that. Talk myself into a relationship wasted years before meets absolutely. But so i think that maybe that's another reason like people like even joe on the show which i know like sense has been like i didn't realize natasha's number one fan but on the show. He said you knew what it was so like. He didn't know all the things that brendan was saying to natasha. Shore but like from the outside looking in at the time everyone was like. We're not that surprised like we all knew she was going to come down. We all knew that she was going to choose him right away. We all knew he was going to say yes like.

"It take to succeed. Well i'm not the first person to say the number one first thing we have to happen to achieve anything is desire. We have to want less brown. You say you have to be hungry. You know you have to be hungry to succeed. You have to have a deep desire to move the needle of your life forward. You have to have a desire for a dream for a mission for a cause for something that you believe in that is pulling you forward because you care about it so much and let people say it will burn. I don't care about anything. I'm like is there. Is there a worst place to be in life when you just have desire for nothing. I mean that isn't that ultimately where we fall into suffering or or depression or loneliness where we fallen into the negative lights of the world that they're starker shades of experience of life. And it's not by accident. We all feel like people who say have no desire brandon. As if they're a victim can you believe it. It's like they act like it's it's the fault of the world.

Author Brendan Leonard on the Love-Hate Relationship Many Have With Fitness
"So brennan. I think the title of your book. I hate running and you can't. You might give a lot of people pause especially because the a and hate is a heart so kind of breakdown that dichotomy. That paradox for us. Yeah Actually made that t-shirt to sell Because i thought this really captures my my feeling about this. Like i hated economic like it. You know like. When i'm done with it i love it. I love having done at love being runner but like most of the time. It's really. I don't know if you to have this problem but i'm self employed so when i wake up on wednesday go okay. I get run today and I think about. Maybe i should run rate when i get out of bed. You know or right after breakfast and then it's like three o'clock and i'm like really need to run today and sometimes it's like five thirty and finally get out the door so i put it off because i apparently don't enjoy it enough To to actually. Just go do it. And i think i had this feeling that my relationship with running with like the love hate was common to a lot of people in calm and i still only met a few people who don't know i just love it in there. I think professional athletes so knowing running partners what they are yes. She's so happy to be out here. She's talking about me right. So it's i. I felt like there was maybe a market for that sort of idea and also won like people to know that it's okay to not like exercise seato. It's like no one likes it real. I mean some of us. Some people do. But like i feel like. It's just a game of tricking yourself into thinking you like something in order to maintain fitness. You know no matter what you do So running that's my relationship with it too. I think one of the chapters talk about The difference between liking something in loving it do like use the metaphor of having children. You know. I don't personally know this. But i know that people do not like their children one hundred percent of the time they do they do love them still even dislike them so i feel like running is the same thing only. I probably hate it a lot. More than people hate their kids.

Yeah in. But i did finally break down like One of those law my spurt right here. And that last week so niceness. Let's roll back to a time. Well before tiktok. What's your earliest inception memory of childhood. I think it's me in my backyard with my dad in my seeing. What the airplane or something like that in explaining deal was or something along. Those lines is very little kid hero. Bits would be. Where did you grow up in southern california adventure. it's sort of Yeah okay nice. Oh so cal. Seeing planes yeah. It's it's funny how you think about those memories. I had one recently reappeared in my head and it was my parents on the side of the the house that go to like a little bit concrete to fix up like a gap between the way the board. And i don't know why but i being in kindergarten and i'd been putting shapes into like plato or something like that i was like. Oh this has the same texture is that and so i went and got these wouldn't paces of something and just put all the shapes in the concrete but i remember that because my parents was Angry it's the angriest episode in that age. So that's my favorite been raised 'cause like those emotional moments by bear angry. That's for sure you know growing up. What did you think you're gonna be when you're a kid. I pretty basic soft be honestly from long time. I thought maybe like a lawyer or a. I really liked this idea of being a psychologist. But i did have his uncle who worked in advertise in i style. It was the coolest thing on the planet and to me to me with like. Oh you might working. Hollywood and so i always sort of like looked up to him and what he's doing but it never registered. Oh i could do that as a career. Because i just had no concept of by but yeah i definitely didn't meeting wasn't fame but i didn't think advertising huma what he did in appetizing zero out director credit director. He was he was a critic director. He's a pretty big deal. He did like wieden. Kennedy in like heyday. Hey it the air jordan denying. He's he did. A bunch of like air jordan spots. was really iconic. Bono's air jordan. He i'm pretty sure he will come. Charles for really. I'm not a role model that at did upon big campaigns and Was he won an emmy for his work. He was pretty young. Pretty high up there when when you think back about that period of time and there's always like a lesson there whether it's from an uncle grandparent apparent some sort of lesson that you re really sort of defines part of your personality when you get on later in life and you realize this in hindsight often for me noticing it. I'm basically during my father. But then you also realize okay. This is a nice trait to someone. Have even though you grimace at the fact that only god. I'm like my dad. I'm just like my dad. May was always the this hard work ethic and i saw that indirectly because i'll be sitting in his factory. Print smell the smell of freshly printed pipe. Stuff like that so that was sort of the thing for may enhance autocad. It was hot work. Do you have anything like that growing up. Yeah i'm definitely it's funny. I've seen hang hardworking. Parents were sort to be late. Do your best in like they would never get an angry. That get disappoint you know so you you sort of always wanted to put forth as much energy as possible into something that you're really trying to accomplish so i think i think way level grid up them a bit and then for my uncle which unions more way later in life. When i talked to advertise get advice from him. He was almost more like work incredibly hard. Who's almost more life to anybody. Anybody can do this job. They're doing you know. Sort of breaking down as facade. You serve build up in your mind overall. I i can't do it. Go by you know do your best. Don't worry about it like nobody knows what they're doing. This is all like shake the sideline don't dress it up egypt's you can do just as well as the next guy well. Do you think that will that particular thing. From yong-chol the hard work is very tangible. One that you could put a line through and and distinguish it but when you hear your uncle knowing what he did in advertising sign something like that did mostly build your confidence or the just make you re. Did you have a sort of rationalization or an awareness built from that point onwards that. Yeah actually i can do that. And you believe that moving forward compatible. I also be revised sort of. There's always attornal struggle. Where like when i get down. I don't believe it in michael. Try aunt.
"brendan" Discussed on Agency Ahead by Traject
"Today. I'm really excited. Talking to one of my favorite people. Brennan suffered brendan is created. This really cool kind of ongoing education center called. Seo for the rest of us. He has a podcast. He's all about helping people you know. Create great content that does rank for search We're gonna talk about search. Thank you for joining me brendan. Yeah thanks so much for having me. I really appreciate and be fun. Also i'm i love chatting with you online. We had a few times before. I'll dive right in today. We're gonna talk about in ten. And it's something i know you think a lot about just high level. How do you. Kind of approach modern Intent when it comes to creating content. Yeah so my background is as an educator. Because at eighteen years old i was alive. The for some reason decided. I was allowed to decide what i want to do with my life and i decided to be a teacher and then did that for ten years so a lot of my teaching and thinking about seo is not just like what is right. But like how do i teach this so search intent very often is talked about in a way that is certainly intentive a user is informational navigational transactional or commercial right. They want one of those four things. And i don't think that's wrong but i started to feel like that's not helpful because it doesn't actually inform what you do right if it's like well this is an informational search. Okay so i just put information. And that's how i rank like probably don't like if it's a navigation search from googling like how to get somewhere sure like maybe a long form blog posts like this isn't the day like if you're one of the olds like me you remember like printing out mapquest and stuff like that was the thing. But we don't need that like an informational. Post is not gonna work there or if you google something and a lot of people are buying stuff. It's a lot of products like they probably don't want long blog post however it just tells you what goes there and not the how or as marketers what the heck to put on the page. So i did some homework. And i was like where did you know i want to know before i like. Poo poo something on twitter. And give my hot take where this come from. And i dug and duggan you know you have to the the link chasing in stuff is just like this person cited this person who said that this person crap. It's back to the first person you end up with thirty tabs. What i found was our model in twenty twenty one for search intent comes from me two thousand seven blog post from rand fish skin not wrong. He's brilliant because what he said in two thousand seven for context in two thousand seven. That was the year that like leave britney alone and chocolate rain popular out through so we can have. Yeah you just happened to the real way back machine and like but he's not wrong. It's brilliant because he's still correct right. That is still part of the intent. But i thought to myself part of seo for the rest of us. How do we make this more accessible. How do we give people something they can. Actually use will all right. We have to figure out if something is commercial or transactional or whatever like. I can't really help you if you're trying to drive somewhere like that's not what i'm doing in my marketing. That might be part of it if you're like a local business or something but for me the really like the informational or the transactional commercial came down. Like what the heck do we put on. The page is introduced to a really cool model for copyrighting by my buddy joel key from business casual copywriting. He also runs case. Study buddy now. That came from eugene schwartz in his book breakthrough advertising the kind of walks. It just walks through like levels of awareness. Now it's meant for ads right depending on what level of product or service awareness there at what they're searching. You can kind of figure out what needs to go on the page. What do they need to move. Not to the next step nazi-like book damn o or whatever but like just to the next piece of the puzzle and that's been really really helpful if you if you want. I can kind of get into a little bit of that one thing. I'm really interested for his is. There's a lot of kind of maybe. It's the controversy but but people talk about the idea of on the one hand you have. Seo's who just tried to mimic what the top ten pieces of content are that rank on page one. And doing exactly that in. That's how you're going rank and then there are other folks who say we'll just do better by you don't know if that's necessarily going to become visible for what you're trying to rank for. So what do you say to those people in how they approach creating content for you know. Can we trust google that they're actually going to surface the right content. So this is like i said something. I remember saying something the other day of like. I'm pretty sure that the quality of the top ten like the reading the top ten results quality of content is not a ranking factor anymore. It's i just. I i was reading stuff. And maybe it's because i was reading about marketing things. Half of them were unintelligible. There was no narrative to take you through you could tell each of the sections was based on like a people also ask or whatever and it was just like literally like imagine you know. You're you think you're sitting down like a ten course meal and somebody they're just throwing random food at you the whole time like here's your salad and now here's desert and then there here's a pizza and then like a piece of chicken and you're like what the there's nothing that makes this flow. There's no s- craft of writing here. It might as well be written by a robot pains me because these are humans that are spending their lives doing this. And they think they're doing a good job because they got the traffic and the conversions and blah blah blah. I think first of all. I empathize at the human writers. Who are writing these things like that must suck for you to write to just spew out this stuff all day and be on on the content marketer writer and that's what i do commodity kind of content so i would love for it to be better to encourage people to do better work. We can elevate the craft of writing that would be

Because i feel like a lot of us don't really know a lot about agriculture. And it's a really good way to learn so brendan. How are you man. Doom birdie good. Thanks for having me awesome dude. We're really glad that you're here. So tell us about your show for sure. So i started my show back in april twenty. Eighteen seven running it for almost three years now and it kind of started as a project for a couple of friends of niger's to kind of mess around with We were all seniors in high school when we were doing clubs. And we're learning law in our agriculture classes and we just had a lot of information second our heads because we were doing speaking teams and we were. You know we're officer so we were really involved than leadership that kind of stuff so we required to know a ton about agriculture so we could teach others about and that kind of overloaded. Our brains a bit so you know since our parents retired listening to his rant about basically started podcast as a way of just you know sitting around the table just talking about issues and over time that evolved the moved off in went to college. I went to community college. So i stayed in my hometown and i just started interviewing farmers and other industry professionals around the area and i started to notice that the issue that i was addressing in the podcast wasn't really being answered by podcast. I wanted to be a way of teaching people who don't really know much about the About agriculture more about you know where their food comes from and just wasn't really happening as most you know reaching just just farm so far by farmers for farmers which is great but wasn't really my ideal audience. So i right around the time. We're all shutdown started happening. I decided to you know. I was on a at that time. I was on a four or five months. Break from my podcast. I almost considered quitting. It bows like nothing else. Going on school shutdown. I might as well take this time to start working on the project again. And so i reach out ready atlantis koran if you other platforms start connecting with people who didn't know anything about agriculture. But we're really interested in had some good questions asked are bringing them on the show. Instead became you know more of a conversation between somebody who knows about the industry and some who has questions about it so i can answer their questions and do that kind of dynamic and it's been really really successful ever since that's awesome so is it considered. Would it be considered like almost unusual for somebody really young like i would consider young. I'm thirty. I would still consider you relatively young into agriculture. Like to the point where you'll start to show for it. Oh absolutely senior in high school. I don't.

"And welcome back everyone. We've got a very special episode for you today. And we have a guest. I would like to welcome to the podcast. Professor at brendan crop. Plea welcome brendan very much for having me really excited to to chabert reflected promised today wonderful so obviously the first thing that we need to know about you in our listeners will be eager to know as you said we're gonna be talking about reflection but if you could tell us a little bit about your background in education and research and specifically how you came to explore the theory and practice of reflection okay Some my first foray into education I was fortunate enough to take some alley paid lecturer hours on a strong college. Which is now part of colleague. Moy and i always say to my colleagues in haiti. The actually it's the best education. I ever had as an academic because you're working with a very different type of individual as a learner. You you find out about yourself in in those situations more so than what you'd give yourself credit for in terms of knowledge of the subject area etc that you think is going to get you through as a as a educator absolutely appreciate that. Your knowledge of the subject barrier is is very Minor compared to understanding the individuals that you're working with so spent some time working in efi to start off with and then as fortunate enough to be offered the opportunity to do a phd in the area ralph professional development within sports psychology which is the area those trading professionally at the time and part of this part of the research about really understanding how professionals develop the knowledge that they need in order to operate effectively so the phd married up with my professional trained as a sport psychologist but also what was experiencing just mentioned in in fee as an educator as a very near for its very naive educator and so i started to explore the role of reflective practices a process of experiential learning as a process of helping us to understand how we join different types of knowledge such as content of the subject area knowledge of individuals knowledge of ethics knowledge of context etc rejoin all of that knowledge together to give an understanding of how we operate. Now we make decisions and how we perform us as educators and so warm white Research into reflective practice was really started in the area of sport soon translated into all the other areas that i was operating at that time as an educator as a as a sports person as a trainee sports psychologist and Yet really became a formal part. Only foretells research in also. What else doing so. I'm thinking now about my own kind development as a teacher myself. Now you've been talking about being a very naive edgy. Back to my pg in the heady days of two thousand and four and everybody was talking about being reflective practitioner. But actually when i think back the kind of. It's no exaggeration to say that the reflection after lesson consisted of a template with a massive box that just said so how did it go then whereas now will use a research informed kind of really structured reflective model. Things have moved on really fast particularly in the last couple of years. So can you give us an insight into kind of why we've done that. What does the research tell us about the impact on teachers of doing this really structured formalized reflection. Yeah not a problem that just before the benefits. There's something really interesting here in a thing. The way in which in reflective practices introduced during our training whether that be during the pga or whether it be a training to be a sport next scientist or sports psychologist all however is introduced in any profession..

"Brendan we were talking about risks of those who visit the property who has what kind of experience has a lot to do with what kind of attitude they have going in I've always tried to prepare sort of mentally mentally gird my loins I guess what I'm going on to the property and it it seems to have worked but for for a lot of people what happens there doesn't stay there it follows them home I wonder if any of you or your team have experience that good question I I haven't so for for what it's worth I haven't had anything thankfully follow me home yes I have I haven't experienced that in four years my team on the other hand several members of the team who had pretty extreme incidence of high strangeness that they call it that have followed them home some more disturbing than others and and it sucks it's hard to predict and it's in it's even harder to to anticipate what to expect not only when you're on the property but I guess when you leave the property and may have something I can't follow you but I I I've never had that experience myself and I'm thankful for it the term skinwalker course it goes along with native American history sort of the umbrella term that that the Utes have used to describe the what goes on at the property to explain it I'm an umbrella term that of lumps of variety of different phenomena that happen on the property together I wonder if yeah I know you have delved into the history of the property I wonder how much interaction you've had with the tribe and whether or not they've verified to you that that is in fact what they believe yeah very very good question we've had a number of native American elders out to the property yeah I mentioned earlier that we've we've tried to approach the property with the degree of reverence and that includes respect for the neighboring tribes in for the history of the area and and we've we've really works to forge I think a a stronger relationship of trust and respect I have to give credit to Jim Morris who is really headed up those efforts of the community he's he's raised millions of dollars for native American charity scholarship fund you name it and he he really is a dork why so many of the tribal leaders and and if the skinwalker aspect of this is just as real to them as driving down the street if the US it's it's an interesting part of their their lord their heritage and it's something that we're we're aware of and it's something that is difficult to wrap one's mind around if you're not from that from that culture that background but it's it's definitely a a key part of the the history that runs through this property in fact that the mesa as we call it that that runs the expanse of the property from east to west has been referred to and skinwalker rich and that's really from what I was told and through our research that was really how the property who's who's gonna given its name or its identity and and this is definitely a steeped in in not a lot of a lot of Lauren history going back to the eighteen hundreds especially with the tribes and some of the contention I know you've done a lot of work digging into records about previous owners we know that that you know that's a story that's told in our book about the the ranch family that I called the Gorman's that they had dramatic experiences for the twenty months that they live there and beyond but the previous owner said nana we never saw any of that stuff what what do you make of that and I don't know that there are limits on no yeah not a bunch of bunk so one of the things that that that I'm quite proud of is that we've been able to pull together and archival history of the ranch and the surrounding area and I'll tell you there are reports of the go back to the the original homesteaders back to the nineteen thirty of you know bizarre cattle mutilations that were brought to the attention of law enforcement even back into the thirties we have reports from the early nineteen eighties the date directly to the to the the previous owners the Myers that did have the property before the measurements and this is before this property was really on the on the radar or really reported to be a at center of interest at least so I I need I have a hard time with the criticism that people often are quick to to give regarding you know the the Shermans and Bigelow and that you know that all of this was was brought on brought on by them that it was all a figment of their imagination soar or was a product of of their occupation on the property where there are a you know whatever was going on when in fact we have I mean we're talking numerous accounts in a very credible accounts of the individuals who both lived on the property and have family members that worked on the property that that had strange encounters that's that's frankly defy explanation and are consistent with what we are seeing to this day explain that yeah I mean two hundred plus years it it's not something that Bob Bigelow or the military created or you for that matter you know that the gab the big criticism of of Bigelow and I will admit going into this question that he's a friend of mine that has allowed me to be a fly on the wall regarding the ranch for a long time to one degree or another about the criticism that he plays his cards pretty close to the vest I it's true he's always done that but you know during the needs era I think you wanted to a real low profile because there is an interactive quality to what goes on out there as you just described people who trespass or come on to the property not only put themselves at risk but also could gum up the works or whatever research you might be doing so as you have done with your security they tried to do that as well and try to keep it on the down low when the bass program was underway the D. I. A. study for those three years of course they had another reason for secrecy imposed on them by a government agency but you know obviously you have been able to turn that around and are ready to tell what you know which is really refreshing I'm just trying to yeah I I well I want to take a more collaborative transparent approach and a big part of that George's work we're opening the ranch up for a live feed tomorrow read it in Newsweek just were kind enough to help facilitate it with our team and Eric bard and our team out there his his his made it possible to engage people and in a way that I don't think would have ever been imagine they're considered in the past many people are going to be able to actually tune in and pull up a live feed and be able to witness from any number of different angles what we see on an hour to an hour minute to minute basis out there and some of it may be boring it but you never know what may pop up on the feet we we've we've learned that and so I that is part of this new age of collaboration and and wanting to demonstrate our openness and and really are sincere desire to discover what is really going on out there I mean I I've wanted to engage the public interest to have them participate in a very tangible way in in our journey so I'm I'm excited I hope people I hope people participate I think it doesn't cost anything it's it's it's offered I believe free but anyhow it's it's been exciting yeah in the exciting part of what we're doing well I know I'll be watching and will post the link on coast to coast at the appropriate time and then Tuesday night the TV show debuts and that also is part of your effort to increase the transparency what goes on there but imagine again you know when you increase the profile of the property you know it's an invitation to trespasser isn't interlopers vandals I mean that happened a lot when the when the book came out of the hunt for the skinwalker all kinds of people descended on the property taking sneaking onto it ripping off the gates and fences and taking souvenirs and have a little of your parties and as you know it cut creates a lot of problems four yeah people are very disrespectful and it's it's sad because I don't think that people realize that we really are engaged in a serious investigation I mean this is a scientific research project in in order to maintain the integrity of that project and we have to we have to have a secure site and you are violating that security compromises the nature of what we're trying to record it compromises the data and I don't think people take that into consideration I and it's it's really unfortunate but my hope is that people in the future will be respectful and and a big part of agreeing to this show was is really my effort to engage the public and I want people to see behind the scenes I want them to have really a look into the ranch and into exactly what we are doing in order to to really discover the truth to to really discover the secret of skinwalker ranch share with me sort of the arrival of the TV crew because again we're talking about balancing risks versus rewards when you bring people on you put them at risk to some degree and I'm sure at least some of them were aware of what kind of risks there were others might have been totally of dismissive of the whole thing right yeah that is that is true I I would say that the majority if not all of the crew that came in from LA were were very vocal skeptics I think they they thought that it was that it was all a bunch of baloney but they were out with the job and they were there to to document what was happening but we required everyone to sign NDAs and also liability agreements technology in that set there was the danger involved six people have been hurt that there that there is unexplained phenomenon they have to acknowledge that and going in and we we require that of anyone who enters the property as part of the investigation whether they be a vendor or contractor or someone involved in this case if you're going out with the crew and die I I would dare say that the crew that came out and were there for months that mobilized on site with our team I think I would be surprised if you if if there was one of them that left skeptical for at least without scratching their heads and saying well they admitting honestly that they have witnessed things that they simply cannot describe or in some cases really explain away doctor Taylor you know Travis Taylor who we brought on to really engage and challenge the team and really elevate this from being an observational science exercise to something I think a little bit more aggressive your doctor Taylor came on at the skeptic I think he he thought that we were all pretty silly and even show me evidence I think he keeps he really wasn't willing to concede that there was something truly unexplained or extraordinary going on and so on and so he yelled as has been reported he left also scratching his head and we'll be bringing him back in fact he's now he's now a key member of the team along with the doctor Jim Sigala who have really been advising Eric barred so interesting times it was a tendency I think with the ranch of new eye witnesses people come to the property they may be skeptical at first and then they have an experience and they're not no longer skeptical but they are skeptical of what other people saw you know critical of I'll I know I had I saw something but I don't believe the other stuff it's just I guess Uman nature comes with the territory sure well it is now your name is out there yeah go.

"Brendan. I was trying to say that without banned in Indonesia. Yes. Maybe somewhere I actually is somewhere to stay. You've just ended that. I was planning to do it. If I can help it I in Jakarta. That off. AM? Thank you very much yet. Let's jump onto mine topic. And it's one that you defies a great one. And it is cool. It. Remembering air pets at Tabet memorials for pets that die. Is that is that you want to feel all responsible. Yes. I thought that Deng we've several tonnes. I've lost seventy weeks. We've touched on the very special and privileged position that we have in euthanasia, and we've talked about the dynamics of euthanasia, and particularly how those dynamics logistics might be different for many of our exotic pets. And there's a good amount of very useful resources. Now available about Tom. What is the most humane way to go about that process? But I thought it might be an opportunity for us to touch on. What happens afterwards Brendan? And and so I think that particularly, you know, many of the things that were that we will be about to talk about. Out, you know, the play apply equally. Whether we're talking about exotic pits or more traditional pets. But I do find my experiences that I probably him. I'm very of several factors which means that I end up dealing with more frequently with them Meigs, Eric pits. And the first one is that is that whole thing about exotic pet medicine that that we often end up seeing them at a more critical juncture in their illness where it may be the more likely to not necessarily survive. So and many of the species that we get to do with Hever much shorter lifespan than out dogs and cats, and so we've got wonderful Quant to have rats who would dealing with these types of issues once every eighteen months or two years, and they love their at so much that they get another one. And then we get to see them again. So I do feel that there are some special characteristics of of memorials of of. What we do after an animal pasta. Why that might be applicable for exotic avian pits? Absolutely. And I think the important point. They amac is that we shouldn't be prejudging. Nice clients, regardless of pay is. Mytalk Matt these autism. David includes a mouse, for instance, or or or or a little rat and some of these animals that Bittu and nurses technicians who had dealing with infrequently. My thing too is only and you should never side that anyway, it's only mass hurts on the rat hearts lake any peak and does point offering the options of what we're gonna talk about shortly after the animal is died to the client because airtime layer at arts, the amass and year, I great titled in that if anything it's the opposite. The compared to dogs and cats they the owners is unusual pets or even more attached to the short lived species. And then them you'd never think of compared with compared with some of the other Spacey's there's lots of different options. And I think that's what you wanted to chat about all the different. Options and things people have done with their pits after they've died, and and head deal with at prices with them in so pilot healing price with me in the right direction. Always gonna first of all talk about language. I think that a think just a little bit of forethought about the woods that we use make a huge difference in these situations of Lawson so attests wanted to I know that many years ago one of the stuff that we had would often talk about the disposal of the the remains of of a pet. And I think that's a classic example of a word that has an implication that that we don't want to pass on these lots of I think often side to the stuff that these events the youth Anais urine memorial what we're going to do. With the young the reminds afterwards, they they moments of truth, Brendan the amongst the most emotional times in people's lives. I'm they have committed a huge part of the loss to this relationship with the animal, and and the decision to not go any further ought to have them die is hugely emotional Vinton. And there are very many moments of truth and using the appropriate language at the time. I think is a sensible thing to do a dual wise one of the things that I think always trying make sure we do is talk to people very early about post-mortems and across seas. I often find that in the very emotional state in the immediate time after an animal pasta, white people. Not in a space to make a decision about that stuff. Very well. But I know, and I literally will say this to people I know that after reflection and several weeks down the track. Many people regret not having a deeper understanding of why those events happened and often like retain to my ratty friends. They they often have more than one of those animals. And so having a great handle on once happened to lead to the death of an animal is a very very important emotional tool. I think not just an important clinical tool. Yes. And we did cover a rate would cover the prices up to the Houston. I Asia in the Houston is your prices in on a previous podcast, which was number thirty six euthanasia of unusual pets where we talk about trying to help the client through the actual use the Niger prices and the formalities of complete in the the consent forms, etcetera and the payments and all that sort of stuff. So we wind Tom, and it's extremely important all that information. But referrallist nece to decide studies seeks for mice to that. Nothing. Mike of we will concentrate on dealing with the disposal as she tried to put it up of the pet and hair. We look after the animal after after we at passed away. And what options we give the clients and other any tips and tricks surprised? It's probably poor poor sign. It had a do deal with it. And some of the some of that quite quickey methods of of of remembering the pets as well mind that that some type of really really I was gonna say enjoy. But really appreciate for with the the key message. We try I suppose the cutting to the chase. There's three broad groups of things that people can can do with with the remains of their pant. The first one is sort of a traditional burial in the this has been a topic. That's been on the Hon in the news lately. And particularly one of the prominent television news writers has might a bit of a online discussion about this. And I'll talk about that in a minute. The second one is cremation and most of us. Bitten hospitals will have a service cremation service that we can use. It actually has been L. The the wonderful people that we use have really built up the the pot of the the market where they I'll looking at Tom birds and small mammals, and where initially they were a little bit. I suppose it's out of the ordinary, and they they didn't know what to do there. Now, very very helpful for us, and very helpful for the the the the crimes who are searching for that sort of result afterwards. And then there's a group of
