In the Waiting

"I do believe that waiting is a season in of itself because it can be a time period it can be Whether that be a short time period or a longtime period. And i think that we can be an awaiting season even when we're going through a completely different season as well Something can be going on our lives where that's happening fast. But then we're also waiting on something that we've been praying about are looking towards for a long time And i think that. I mean i truly believe that. A lot of people are always in a waiting period of something whether it be Do something applicable to their lives or something that's applicable to society. So i think that we can always learn from what we can do at that time as flavors and as individuals waiting seems to be the theme. Doesn't it this year. Yes hellish year. Called twenty twenty. It seems to be the the were. Were waiting on. Figure out what this thing is. Yep waiting on the curb. Waiting on the second way were waiting on a vaccine corned year waiting until our state meets the requirements and we will gather again. We're waiting on when we can get back. Church were waiting on and everybody keeps on christmas. Were on this week. Just are ready for christmas right. I mean we were just way behind satan. Okay it'll be over by the time this episode airs. But thank goodness then. We're on a fasttrack tickers. Yes my wife actually said down. Chris talked me yesterday about Like her for her. It's a it's a. It's attention in our marriage. Like you can't decorate until november 'til 'til thanksgiving is over. Let's have turkey and she's like. But i'm grateful for christmas so let's is a win win. Yeah let's have the decorations during thanksgiving and slowly over the years. He is a beautifully manipulative. Person comes in this one idea. He so sanctified other ways but this is sinful of her over here he literally moved the day one day earlier will last year we decorated. I think i would like to call that strategic strategic right but she goes last year we decorate on on this day and she moved at one day earlier. Yes said this year this year and so we were having our conversation. This was yesterday and she goes. So i'm gonna decorate on november. Sixth and i went out on like five minutes ago. We were decorating the day after thanksgiving. How did we get here. It is here you agreed to it. That's all senior. Don't think i agree to it. I think you connived and and out strategized me on that one but we will. We'll be decorate eaten so it will be decorating when this airs. Maybe mega damore or something anyways hilarious but the waiting is a is a is a is very strategic thing in the life of a believer. I d i do not think it was an accident that when jesus died on the cross and was resurrected on sunday there was no instructions for saturday. that's good is wait while i want you to wait we do anticipate And really that's a big thing We wander but our in our wandering we're waiting on the day In which we will see the lamb of god face to face in which we will step foot into heaven a place that was formerly something.

Invisible marketing with Jeff Lotman

"Great Gun and welcome to the future podcast. Today's guest is the founder and CEO of Brand Licensing Agency global icons. Now, you may be asking yourself what exactly is that? And Russ assured you're not alone as he puts it they operate in an incredibly misunderstood field that no one knows about except we see every day. Remember Flintstones, vitamins. You. Don't think hanna-barbera actually created those do. Yeah totally neither did I. In, this episode he and Chris Talk About the world of invisible marketing pairing brands with products that you wouldn't think necessarily go together. BMW Strollers Porsches Sunglasses. Forever Twenty One and the US Postal Service. It is a super interesting field that I had no idea existed but after hearing about it seems so obvious and brilliant. Please, enjoy our conversation with Jeff Lyman. Okay. So my my audience might be familiar with this idea. It's called a mash up it's when to artists or maybe through a DJ or mixer puts things together two genres that don't belong like rap and country The most famous examples I can think of as an artist whose name is danger mouse he took Jay z's black album and the Beatles white album and put them together and created magic between I. I think if I understand what you do correctly jeff that it's kind of like what you do you take two things that we love and you smash them together and it's just wonderful thing and most. Of US are completely oblivious to this happening you write about this in your book called invisible marketing now do I have this Jeff? No I think that's a really interesting way of looking at it and I've never ended describe like that. But I think you're right. I mean that's exactly what we do. We really put a manufacturer together with the brand usually have someone that wants to create a product and he's trying to break into the market and they're trying to figure out the best way of doing it, and of course, they could call it jeff or they call it Lamborghini including the their name WanNa, compare to my name what goes up dramatically. Okay. So this is fascinating because this is a world that we all kind of are somewhat subconsciously aware but until we learn about what Jeff does, then it becomes very clear what's happening. So Jeff for people who don't know who you are, can you introduce yourself and let let us all know kind of what it is that you do. Short. So my name is Jeff Lottman. I'm the CEO Global Icons, which is a company that I started almost twenty years ago and were a brand licensing agency and we work in a field that is incredibly misunderstood and no one knows about it. It's really crazy when you. When you tell people what you do, you only have to give them an example for them to understand it because otherwise they won't get. It's very frustrating at times apart parts. Well, it's interesting because I have imagined that you probably don't have as much competition because not that many people understand what it is is that true or now? It's also really s could feel there's not really many people that work in the brand licensing company in our world probably are. Ten fifteen agencies is probably no more than four or five or six of any real size. It's a great business i. mean it's been around really got in. Thirty years ago when really hit his stride compared to entertainment licensing like you know, Mickey Mouse on t shirts have been around. Since the early twenties. Right, so I guess a lot of people don't understand is like a company like Disney makes a lot of their money, maybe most of it through merchandising and licensing and building products based on entertainment Ip, and some some reference or some examples that you gave on different podcasts that are heard you talk about, which will help you understand truly what we're talking about is flintstones vitamins. The flintstones hanna-barbera did not make those vitamins the BMW stroller a BMW. BMW. Did Not make that stroller and then one that I can think of I think is Porsche Sunglasses? Maybe they did make it but it's licensing. Right. So it's a licensing, the brand equity that somebody has built up and moving into different product categories right. Exactly. I also called rarified air because let's face it. What is a brand a brand by you buying something and says a lot about how you feel you WanNa feel. So when you're going to buy apple the great, let's face it apple has built a business not about making the best computers but really telling people that when you use their computers, you're more creative you're more clever. You're you're on. Tran-. You're on edge or Microsoft, is always about we're GONNA make the best computers in our numbers in our ram is this and this and Mac never really sold that I mean they talk about benefits but it's really more about what it does for you and how it releases your freedom and because of that people look at it very differently and that's why there's so much passion for apple compared to Microsoft.

The Suicide Squad Spinoff Peacemaker, Starring John Cena, Ordered to Series at HBO Max

"Let's talk about the this TV series those announced they a suicide squad spinoff Chris Talks about it Yes. It's called peacemaker and it's going to star John Cena who is in the film peacemaker and the show is going to either be a follow up or Prequel, we don't know. But we do know that that James Gunn who is directing the suicide squad wrote all the eight episodes of the upcoming series and he's going to direct some of them as well and it will be on. HBO. Max, who was also handling the Batman spinoff series about the Gotham police. Force. Okay you mentioned this could be a prequel. This could be a sequel like what we know. Well, the officials log line says it's a it is going to explore the characters origins which. Sure sounds like it's a prequel but James Gunn is being. Cagey on twitter DOT COM. So we don't really know I personally think he's just trying to save face 'cause the suicide squad doesn't come out until next year and he doesn't WanNa be like, yes. This character definitely dies in my movie you won't get to see for a few months but. I guess we'll see. What do we know about this character? He is. Some he is started as a master of weapons and also he's quote a man who believes in peace at all costs no matter how many people he has to kill and quote. So he's like I guess he's like ultraviolent Captain America. Unfamiliar with, peacemaker as a character. Is it strange that they're announcing a SPINOFF TV show before this movie comes out I mean, not really I mean they did the same thing with with the Batman thing and I, really think they're trying to build up. This world they have you know marvel has been. Raining supreme all these years and marvel has a bunch of Disney plus shows coming out and you know brothers. Let's we need to get in on this action as well.

"Again, in just I can't stress this enough mutually disaster relief is doing excellent work almost all of the work that they have done goes unappreciated in unnoticed, and you know, with a platform of of the sort that you guys have it would be really great if you could use their funding and donation pages there are some really humble people there, some of the most genuine fantastic down to earth comrades that I've ever met. They inspire me every fucking day. They're beautiful people, and they're going to continue to do this work, and they're going to continue to need funding and support for doing that work because as we've said multiple times on this interview already global climate change is here, and the catastrophes that it will wreak are already having havoc on the world. I mean, the the California wildfires are. Just another example of the kind of catastrophes that we are going to continue to see as our climate disintegrates around us and people who are responding to that using a model of of mutual aid. And I think that that model needs to continue to spread. So we can send you the links to their fundraisers into their donation page, and you can put in the show notes. That'd be great. Yeah. I would love to put those in the show notes, and I will put them in the show notes, and they are in the shit's great. If I could. Thanks, Jill for supporting Australia. Thanks, David thinks to y'all for having us on. And Cosby run a podcast called truckload oppression. Maybe interested to check out through. We'll through all these links in the description. Yeah.

"So I'm going to end on one last thing. That's almost throw y'all just had an election, and it's still going. And so, you know to channel Matt Kristen it's all really about the spectacle. Right. So how did the election play out there? I know that you know, it's very contested. You're dealing with a state that has a lot of traditionally a lot of issues having a good easy elections. And then on top of that you're doing it a region that was just decimated by a weather disaster. Was there any issue involving the election in the affected areas of the hurricane? I'm going to defer to our political along here. Ryan Ray on this. Yeah. Let's walk out. His speak. Speaking of disasters right there. Actually in bay county. Where of some of the most intense damage was seen there is some controversy over ballots emails which actually rules, but you know, that's against the that's against the law. It seems like basically any irregularities of where sort of incidental. Okay. Didn't have any systematic impact on the elections. I think a lot of us here thought that this might be the one hobby thought that injury Gillam in his relatively progressive campaign. Probably the most left oriented campaign for state wide office that will be seen in the contemporary period. Was right going to beat. It was going to prevail, and maybe even a pull the pull COPA Nelson Senator Bill Nelson along with them over the finish line. Oh god. Fucking. Rick Scott is a true ghoul. Actual an actual vampire. Fucking red skull with a little a little peach putty pulled over a space. Oh my God. That's perfect. That's perfect description of him. Yeah. I know literally looks like rid school. Before he was famously called that boy in the National Enquirer that kind of land because it rings true if I could locally we had a left birdie crat oriented of city commission candidate that was successful nicer in that campaign. We sort of both up survive your skill over. How will the the overall it's get bullets, but Jeffey met Lil was just elected. He city Commissioner on a pretty unapologetic lefty. Basis. So we're happy about the generally. Of course, are very terrible politics just continued to be really bad here at the state level. It will congrats on your local is you and I don't know observing from afar. I it does look like Florida might soon. Hopefully with the recent enfranchisement ballot initiative, it might tip tip over from from being the bad state to being the I guess kind of okay state. So so good luck on that for you guys in the elections to come. And I think that's that's basically all I have to say, I mean, all the work that you guys are doing sounds great. And you know, you you've had really interesting things to say to. Kind of put it in context of the work that you all you all do in the USA. Is there any final words that you would like to say? Oh, sure. Yeah..

"I kind of touched on it before. Because I think that it's it bears. But I think that it bears reiterating global climate change is not something that is a future event. It's something that is happening right now. It is something that is intimately tied to the collapse of capitalism in the rise of fascism. And if we do not take that Syria. If we do not see that as an epoch shifting event. If we do not see it as the potential collapse of human civilization, which is what it is. Then we could potentially wave goodbye to the future. Either our future our children's future or our children's children's future. And I'm not willing to do that. So I think that I think that more than anything this series of events has led a fire lit a fire under my ass to really take serious the cause of anti fascism and the cause of global climate change into recognize the interconnectedness and the overlap and the intersection of these things, and I think that what ends up happening when we have these decentralized networks that are able to respond timeously is that they can be equipped with the tools with the desires and with the ability to confront a multi. Suited of different threats, whether they are threats of fascist uprising, whether they are threats of continued climate catastrophes, whether they are threats of economic collapse when we come together, and we build these decentralized networks they don't happen in a vacuum. They don't happen in a void. It's not something that just comes together, and then is sort of disassembled leader in in sort of dissipates. Instead, we are trying to be very intentional about building strut strong bonds in an actual relationships that go beyond just, hey, you're my comrade or your my comrade, but hey, you're my friend, and I love you and I cherish you. And I want to look out for you. And be there for you. And I'm gonna have your back, and I know you're going to have my back, and I think that it doesn't it's not said enough on the left. But like, you know, the reason why we're gonna win is because be fucking care about each other. And we love one another, and I think that that is such an important lesson that we've kind of taken away Earl at least that I've taken away is that. That love is is something that needs to be nurtured in that it's something that is going to need to turn into a fucking vicious fire to fight back. Yeah. And we've just speaking specifically about our chapter we've had members who they come to the meetings. But maybe not the most active members in our chapter who have like slowly taken charge. They made their own connections there amongst themselves to make runs to some of these communities. They've made their own contacts in those communities that they're communicating with regularly to find out what supplies they need to like for the first month. It was it's been super hot and rainy. And now it's starting to get deigned cold outside to where if you have if you don't have the ability to stay warm, it could potentially be dangerous. So, you know, there we've just seen a lot of empowerment and growth in our members who have really taken charge and started leading the way that's been that's been really amazing. As well. As just building coalition with a lot of these other groups that may or may not taken seriously prior to seeing us in action coming this hurricane relief. We've had. Members of Planned Parenthood, the poor people's campaign, the Florida people's advocacy centre, and I go on and on who we have built real ties with now that we'll be working with in the future on this project on many others down the line. That's all. So well said, and so I mean, I'm sure that for me hearing it in. I'm sure for all of you that must feel so precarious, but also powering to to be able to put some of these things these ideas into actual real world practice, whether it be just moving law logs or delivering pizza. I mean, putting putting the ideas behind it into the world feels good man..

"In the wake of something like a climate catastrophe induced hurricane, and so, you know, I I think it holds a lot of I it really brings to light the the the fallacy of looking to people in authority to act us the looking to the state to protect us or to look into our landlords to to have our back. They're not going to save us. We have to save each other. We have to look out. For one another. And that's again, what this whole disaster relief response has been all about since day one. Oh, yeah. Let me do just one more point. And then I want to bring all these threads of relief through solidarity together. Because I do want to talk about the perhaps the most sensational thing that you sent me is that you mentioned that there were some hate groups also doing disaster relief in the area, you mentioned league of the south as well as some vigilante patrolling groups, like the oath keepers, and you know, various looters will be shot signs. Can you can you talk about that kind of dark relief? That's going on on the other side of of the other side of the horseshoe. Yeah. Exactly. Yes. The exact other side of the horseshoe where we're both doing doing solidarity. Just one is good in one is dark solidarity. Yeah. So we heard multiple reports of Lia the south being in the area. I think even someone who is in our initial disaster-relief chat had somehow gotten tied into their their communication line and had seen their planning to come to head. We're planning to come to the area and look out for other white people. We were fortunate enough to never run into them in in addition to that in Mexico beach as things tear rated and before the national guard, actually forcibly removed, everyone from Mexico beach. There. There was a vigilante group that was riding around at night and percenters. Yeah. And essentially just looking for anyone who they find suspicious. They're just trigger-happy ASO's with guns who are looking, you know, it's like this is their dream, right? It's like right Oculus thickness right around and shoot poor people, right and people of color dominantly. I think another big thing to hit on here again is like on the horseshoe. Other side of the coin kind of conversation. The the whole thing is that fascism. Creeps by aping imperilling things that the left does really well right in trying to incorporate them into its project. Right. And this is why we're seeing a an upper uptick in far, right and reactionary and fascist and proto fascist groups utilizing this method of responding to disasters because they see holy shit, actually works at actually meets people where they're at it starts conversations. It gets engaged in community. And so people see that our enemy sees that. And they say, okay, great. We take that we can use that in order to further our fascist agenda. And I think that it's really crucial that we recognize win. Those things are happening MS it's going to be crucial as I mentioned earlier about about on the custom in border patrol. It's going to be crucial that we recognize again. And again, and again that these things are intersectional. If these things are happening simultaneously, the the rise of fascism is directly linked to the collapse of capitalism, and the destruction of our social ecology through global climate change. Yeah. And I think it's telling that one of the main ways that comes out is, you know, in this kind of grotesque parody of aid. The natural sponsor for them is more like a punishment and trying to keep people out in afraid rather than, you know, the the addition domination the said of the aid and solidarity. So let's segue then into the aid and solidarity something, that's you know, basically the end. Every one of these questions is come to this idea of disaster socialism, and that in organizing, the responses disaster it allowed you to put some the ideals and organizing principles of your various groups in front of real people, and and use them in a very physical real world way. And so now imagine me doing the anime guy pointing at the butterfly Meam is this practice. Well, I mean it right wing policies that we've seen that state and federal level make these disasters much ways. If you think that I..

"The ability for actual working class people to get their hands on desperately needed supplies, which is where we came in. And we're trying to actually put people in touch with either networks organizations or more specifically trying to just simply put supplies into people's hands. So that they could go home and. Give water to their children or to put food on the table for their families at one point. I was in blunts town with like fifty hot pizzas that have been donated by a good friend of ours who is running for city commission here in Tallahassee, and I was I just I drove down to the poorest neighborhood that I knew oven blunts town. Just started handing these pizzas out to families. And a cop pulled up on me ask for pizza, and then proceeded to tell me that I was making a big mistake by handing these hot pieces out to the folks in this community because all they were doing all they were doing was sitting around at their houses waiting for people to to hand them things that they needed on that I should my time in my pizza would be better spent given to the relief workers in the linemen and the law enforcement officers downtown, so it's just little things like this perspectives. Like this that perpetuate that type of thing. And meanwhile, the public in any small towns are all working together we saw people cleaning out their refrigerators rest. Cleaning out their refrigerators coming to the center of town and cooking over fires and on grills and just handing the food out for free. You know, because it was going to go bad anyways. So that's the word to be the real deficit of state aid comes in. It's the most vulnerable communities are either Illinois eligible to receive it or are reluctant to seek it. Yeah. So it sounds like what you're really seeing is that the we're there was state aid. It was you know, being used either explicitly four in tandem with flexing of state muzzle. Terms of sorting out who in who is not worthy of the pizzas of community. Just one of the thing that I wanted to add on the initial relief work that we were doing just besides like loading, trucks and trucks full of everyday goods that people are going to need to to say healthy and safe was through the Florida people's advocacy centre. We got plugged in with an organization that was focusing on providing relief. For two undocumented folks in a small town in Quincy, which is in Gadsden county. Just kind of north west to Tallahassee and we went over there. We were giving supplies. They started to trust us. They, you know, it's pretty amazing because a lot of these areas there, it's very conservative and on any other day. They would have an issue with anyone calling themselves. Socialist they welcoming us with open arms. We actually able to go to some of these people's houses who are undocumented and where migrant workers and help them put tarps on their roofs and things like this, which we're like soot which was so important in the days just after the storm because it didn't it actually didn't rain for about a week after the storm passed so we had a little bit of time to help some of those people really protect their homes and their livelihoods so in the it's now about a month out after the storm. It sounds like some of the initial work that you're doing is, you know, a little kind of like bailing out of boat of just doing what you can where you can to help things out has. This coalesced into more, you know, organized work to kind of target more effort at at certain places or you still kind of going around in spot buy spot do giving aid where you can. Yeah. As I mentioned earlier, the universalist unitarian church is where folks in mutual with mutual aid is actually for doing organizing in Panama City, Panama City is far to the west of us about two and a half hours west of where we're sitting right now, it's that region is still ravaged it still looks just tragic I drove a comrade up there last week..

"To donate hot meals, and we just drove around and look for communities that needed rather than going to some of these large organizations in enhancing the supplies off to them. We just. Yeah. We we just took it took it in direct action way. And really just try to give the the supplies put the supplies in the people's hands that needed it. What were the deficiencies of state and federal response that you saw and were you able to kind of actively step into to replace any of these things, even if you work of going around, and and trying to address things in kind of a as you saw them basis. Yeah. Absolutely. So FEMA was pretty much newer to be found the police. I I saw police standing around with their hands in their pockets more often than I saw police actually doing anything, which is to be expected to a large degree. You know, there were arbitrary like lane blockages from authorities who were explaining why they were cutting off certain roads. And I think probably most grievously while we were out in alpha Florida the customers in border. Troll were consolidating and hoarding supplies in a localized region and making it so that anybody who wanted to get badly desperately needed supplies had to go through a security checkpoint. And they were justifying this around fears of looting or liberating the supplies that were already stolen from people. In kind of the this whole idea of disaster. Capitalism is very much wrapped up in a much larger resurgence from the far right in from reactionary forces on these things don't happen in a vacuum. Right and rhetoric around Muslims or around imigrants or around, you know, Nexans as is entirely designed towards consolidating state power, and what ends up happening in these disasters owns is that when that power is consolidated it restricts..

"The storm's going to be studied for years because of how quickly it developed. It really did happen in the matter of like three days or less, and there was a little bit of misinformation on where the storm is going to go. And so a lot of folks in Tallahassee evacuated. Our chapter is made up largely of undergrads and graduate students. So a lot of those folks have left town. We're all kind of just like worrying about our safety, and what we needed to do to get ready for the storm where it not for Pearson and his network of different organizations that removed Leising hours before the storm hit in the power went down. He plugged us in and got us set up with a ton of different amazing organizations. That was kind of what initially sparked our interest in like, hey, we have the manpower. Let's like start putting. Together, a network and see what the can do to help out. And then it just kind of took off from there as people are reaching out to us asking where they could donate organizations like the socialist Rifle Association, the Florida people's advocacy centre, the poor people's campaign all jumped on we had people local elected officials and people running for office here in Tallahassee that were jumping into the group chat and finding ways that they could get involved. So it's really amazing to have it. Yes. A kind of a part of that that that confluence of forces all coming together is really what made this work. Well, that's awesome to hear. And and we'll get into this a little more later. But I mean, that's that. Does sound great that what you have is this organization that through the order that it has is able to kind of jump in and seamlessly graft onto all these other groups working at the same time, and you know, just having the ability to mobilize people quickly around. You know need is one of the strongest features of having a responsive of a well working responsible organization. It really really was solitaire. Yeah. I also do want to shout out all the other chapters. I came although I do want to say that space coast DSP has an unfair advantage for having the coolest regional name for a DSL chapter. Yeah. And the best logo. I'm sure it does. I can just imagine the DSP space patch that they that. I'm sure that they have. So let's talk about the aftermath. Then what exactly did you guys mobilized to do? What were the what were some of the actions? Like were you expanding effort? You know, what did you find work the best or was the most efficient use of your your labor, and you know, what kind of didn't work out the best. Yeah. So I'm actually from Tallahassee. So I had a pretty good knowledge of the surrounding communities the south and south west of here just having spent a ton of time and a lot of these places that are completely decimated. So I immediately reached out to folks in towns like blunts town Bristol. Yeah. Places like fourteen Joe. And for the first couple of days is really hard to get in contact with any of these people because no one relief aid workers were not actually able to access a lot of these towns because the primary when people think of like rural north Florida, they might think of like farmland, but for the most part, it's actually lumber. So it's these pine pine forests all along all along the road. So when a big storm like this comes through this trees tip over really really easily. Yeah. You got sandy soil. Yeah. And they have they have really tiny root systems, and they grow really quick. So they just all tip over, and it was very hard to get in and out. But within a few days, we spent the first first few days just kind of going around Tallahassee in a truck with a ton of supplies gasoline. Deodorant toothbrushes, we even contacted a couple of local restaurants. A pizza shop that was willing.

So can you introduce yourselves and tell us your positions in the Tallahassee DS at my name's Cosby Hayes, and I'm the co chair of the Tallahassee DS right Riddick communications for the chapter and help organize fundraising for my name's Pearson. Bowl. I'm a number of the Tallahassee assay member of the libertarian socialist caucus member of mutually disaster relief. Yeah. So let's start off by talking a little bit about the storm itself. Can you kind of describe what it looked like on the ground there? And what the immediate aftermath was in terms of destruction, and what you were dealing with in a community basis. Yes. So Tallahassee was largely unscathed by the storm. We had a lot of down trees. And most of the city was without power for several days. That's not unusual in this area. The storm really of any significant size comes through you experience those types of things, but the communities just to the west and south of us were hit extremely hard. And it's incredible. It looks like nothing that I've ever seen before complete forest tipped over houses. Just obliterated. These folks lost everything. Yeah. And you you said that the city were the the worst of the storm hit Mexico's beaches, basically, not there anymore. Yes. A Mexican beaches completely destroyed. I think it was like one house that had been built for the times that had that had survived other than that. It was a complete loss. They've actually evacuated everyone from Mexico beach in they're slowly letting people come back to assess their property damages and things like that. But the town itself is is no longer considered a town and is a complete loss. I think I saw the picture of the you know, that one house that remained and just everything around it. It's just a field of of desiccated. Boards and stuff. Mexico beach is largely kind of like a not a resort town. But an area where many people own second homes and go there today -cation into enjoy the beach. However, there are many poor families that live there in the towns around Mexico beach are widely impoverished these people did not have anything before the storm and after an event like this. They're left with nothing in many times, not even given the resources on how to start to rebuild yet. So I I'm assuming that after a town like that is destroyed most of the people who don't take and holds homes just kind of abandoned the area and whoever's left there is kind of left to deal with the complete void of infrastructure. Yeah. And unfortunately, the folks who have the have the have the means and did on second homes down there. They're the first ones to apply for, you know, those FEMA grants, and the people who really need them in some of these smaller communities that are less affluent aren't always giving the resources to apply for this types of things. And you know, it's. If you don't know where to start you're not going to start. And so it's not gonna come for a lot of wealthy, folks. It was let's lead insurance other. But thousands of people lost literally every day. Could you tell me a little bit about what kind of advanced preparation will kind of organizational work, Tallahassee DSL was doing to get ready for this kind of thing. All to be totally honest. A lot of the Tallahassee DASA response was very spontaneous. But mutually disaster-relief, which is the organism action that I do organizing worth do organizing with is this is their this is their thing. They were involved when hurricane Michael came through and hurricane Irma. Hurricane Maria that went to Puerto Rico multiple times installed solar. And so win the hurricane Michael rolled through mutually disaster-relief. Folks were ready and willing to participate in to help in the aid of folks in affected communities there..

It's producer Chris back with one more interview from activists around the country today, we head down to Tallahassee Florida where in the spirit of giving. We'll be talking to members of the Tallahassee DJ about their work, providing disaster aid in the wake of hurricane Michael back in October. We telling us all about how work with socialist groups like DS can help provide aid and disasters like this as well. As explain their idea of disaster socialism, which I found quite interesting. We'll be talking a lot about things like solidarity and practice. So if you like using those words online, this might be an interesting one for you as always open to hearing more activist stories to discuss, and you can DM me at say what again on Twitter with suggestions for things I should follow up on. But this is honestly probably the last one of these will get to this year. So enjoy. Shovelling off up to your room to game with scraps from the thanksgiving meal, and while you do please enjoy this interview. The week of October tenth hurricane Michael made landfall on the Florida panhandle is the third most intense hurricane to make landfall in the United States in the second only in sustained wind speed to Hurricane Andrew in nineteen Ninety-two like, oh cause severe damage to communities throughout the region with destruction particularly intense around the city of Mexico Beach, Florida at least forty five deaths have been attributed the storm in an estimated fourteen point five eight billion dollars in damages. The aftermath of the storm with state and federal disaster services lacking many community groups stepped in to provide disaster relief today, I'm talking to the Tallahassee DASA who organized a range of actions to assist various disenfranchised communities in recovery. Where state help was just not adequate they reach out to us first to inform us of their work and try to broadcast the regions need for aid. But also to explain a new kind of experience for the group has much as disaster. Capitalism might be a thing we covered it on episode.

"Entrepreneurs, business owners professionals who seek excellence, bringing them business classroom to you. It's the business builders show. Here's Marty wolf. Welcome to the business builders show with Martin wolf the show for entrepreneurs, business owners and business leaders. I Marty wolf your host for the business builders show along with my executive producer, DC Taylor. We will be your guides on this learning journey. Let me tell you my super objective in being with you today. I want to lose iast ethically share stories and information to inspire leaders so they can inspire of theirs. I'm proud to let you know we record the business builders show in the studios of ninety four, three FM the talker, which is part of bold gold media. And we are in Scranton Pennsylvania. The business builders show is distributed by c. suite radio. You can find our show and many other great shows at c. dash sweet radio dot com. Various podcast is a part of the c. suite radio network for more top business podcasts, visit c. Desk, sweet radio dot com. My special guest with me today is Chris Westfall. Hi, Chris. How are you sir? Doing great Marty, how are you? I'm doing fantastic. I've been looking forward to this conversation. We're going to be talking about your book on ounce that in a second, let me do kind of a formal introduction. Chris Westfall he is an internationally recognized business coach who regularly works with fortune one hundred companies as well as high growth businesses. Chris has appeared on c. n. n. ABC news and NBC TV in his writing has shown up in Forbes entrepreneur, success and other publications. Chris has customers like Cisco Hewlett Packard, Salesforce. The navy seals and many more. Here's something really interesting. Everything's been interesting up till then, but here's even more interesting. Chris Westfall has coached business billers onto shark tank dragons den in Canada and sharp. Shark tank Australia, and he's written a great book. The title of that book is leadership. Language to subtitle is using authentic communication to drive results. Chris again, welcome to the business builders show. Thank you, Marty, it's a pleasure to be here. Okay, so fundamental question, but it's always an important one. Who are you trying to help? What's this book? Again, leadership languages, the title. Maybe you needed help yourself. Maybe that's part of it or maybe you're experiencing something with clients so me, who do you who do you want to help with the book? Well, I think books always come from the author's experience, and certainly that's where this book started, but the objective is to reach out to two types of people. One actual leaders, people who are owners, entrepreneurs executives who have responsibilities for a team for an entire organization in many cases. And then the second group is aspirational leaders. Folks who may be aren't in the c. suite or haven't launched their business yet, but they know that it's on the agenda and it's something that they they want from themselves. So for for folks who look at their career, their life and look at business and say, I want to build something that's not here yet. That's that's really who this book is four. Interesting. I'm going to use a phrase. I'm going to mention a phrase that you mentioned throughout the book. I saw it as a theme now that's me saying that not you folks. You've said you said several times throughout the book you are never more than one thought away from innovation. Let me repeat that folks. You are never more than one thought away from innovation. So I want you to keep that in your head folks as you're listening to Chris talk because that kind of catch me kept me on the edge of my seat. Okay. So we have actual leaders who are doing big companies, small companies, everyone in in between and those who want to be leaders. You also. Kind of make a differentiation. I guess I'm going to ask it this way. So you talk about clients, but you also say clients can also be, you know, folks who you may be leading in the boy scout group. It could be someone it could be your own family. So is that true to or your thinking in terms of defining clients? Is that also part of your thought process when you wrote the book? Well, when you think about clients or another way, in other way to define client will be to say customer, and for me a customer isn't someone that you sell something to a customer is someone that you serve, and that's
