"They just went. They went down this path without any kind of Understanding comprehension or care for what the catastrophic results would be. And we've gotten lie after lie for the president on down and the rest of us are going to end up paying the price. You know monitor what it looks like to me. It reminds me of poker players who they put their money down to start and they decide. They're just going to play the hand out no matter what else they see going on and when everybody else's folded they're still playing their hand out they wind up losing. And that's what i think happened. Here biden thought that he could be the hero he could be the one of the four presidents that would shut it down would always be you know that he shut it down. If there was some complications he would take the heat for it but he never recognized how exponentially the problems became before they started to withdraw and we have a massive lands down. That's a really good point. governor you know as you know better than anybody when you are in a position of authority when you are a leader Part of the job description is being able to adjust as situations change and this president did not do that. Think of this to which i know is going to resonate with folks in new york metropolitan area after nine eleven. Which is that this administration and this president honestly believed that the withdrawal from afghanistan would be a huge pr win as we went into the twentieth anniversary of nine eleven. And that's why they stuck to the august thirty first date that's why they continue to stick to it as totally arbitrary. The taliban basically said okay. Your guys are going to get out by the end of august. They thought this was going to be a huge win for them. And look at it. Turns out the exact opposite and our safety and security is really on the line now more than ever most crowley thank you so much for your input to the american people and we pray for our country and we pray that things work out better than what's going on right now and and have a nice weekend.

The Left Can't Stay Away From Donald Trump
"I saw a really interesting article that i wanted to share because it really kind of hits it all of the major issues in america. Today particularly in politics i sorted appeared in the hill was written by monica. Crowley president trump lift off a seven months ago but the pathologically obsessed left. Just can't quit him. Every left wing meteorology. Let's ceaselessly talks about and curses him like it's august two thousand eighteen get their six year. Long wild-eyed anti-trump mania has in many ways only made him stronger witness the most recent filings by his save america pack and the federal election commission showing trump raised an eye popping eighty two million dollars in the first half of two thousand and twenty one and has over a hundred million dollars cash on hand with which to influence the two thousand and twenty two midterm elections. No other former president has ever inspired and controlled that kind of political fundraising juggernaut. Additionally trump has been holding key meetings a batty's future described by his former chief of staff mark meadows as making plans to move forward in a real way with president trump as the head of the ticket rod on q. Of course lift as commentators came out in force climbing the baden administration investigators and prosecutors a boxing trump in and that. He's influences on the wine but as he's massey fundraising dominant poll numbers and huge crowds at rallies indicate this is wildly off the mark and another transparent attempt to wish trump away. You'd think by now they would have learned. That is a fool's errand but they haven't and one of the favorite wise to try to diminishing dismiss him is to ignore his achievements which they will never concede make him.

What Inspired Obama's 2009 Beer Summit?
"Will see over the course of this episode but i know that all of us think the beer summit is this sort of like sneaky really important moment in the obama presidency. I'm glad we're finally getting to it. kelly where do you start with the sort of incident itself crowley and gates on this doorstep. The neighbors calling the cops. What else do you feel like is important to know about that moment. And then we'll get to the obama white house invitation. Well henry louis gates. It said that he was returning from a major tip. He had just got back into the country from china. So i can imagine. He is jet lagged. He is weary and he has a lost or misplaced his keys so he's trying to get into his home And has has has his driver help him to try to break into his own house And in that process neighbor sees. What's going on. Look suspicious to her so she called the cops and when the cops show up. I think henry louis gates was a bit miffed. If you will that someone would be questioning him about breaking into his own home. I'm sure he said. Do you know who i am harvard for. I'm sure that was part of the exchange But it's also sort of interesting. Because henry louis gates junior also walks with the came. He has a physical disability. And so the idea that he would be breaking into a home himself just did not make sense. And i'm sure a cursory look into the home could also showed you pictures of himself in the house in which he lived. There were a lot of clues contact clones. That would have told you that maybe this is all a misunderstanding but before it could get to that place it escalated and here. We have the beer

Kelly he's gonna be helping us. She's in for the summer. And i had the opportunity to read your book and it's well written and through it. All it's peppered with statistics about minor league major league the evangeline league which was really interesting to me. Because i didn't realize our background here. How important minor league baseball was in this part of the world. One of the reasons for writing the book was to keep alive. The legacy of the crowley millers the ballpark that they played in that still here. In fact it's looking better than ever and The storied past of the evangeline which was established in one thousand nine hundred eighty four and lasted until nineteen fifty seven.

Who’s the Preferred Match-up for Boston in the First Round of the Playoffs?
"What team is a better matchup for the Bruins. Maybe in terms of itself cuz I mean, let's be, let's be candid. You know, lead into this at either match is going to be tough, right? Either one of these ones, you're like, all right? Well, that's what it is, right. Is it thing though? Like, so I feel like the looming thing with capitals is that, you know, any team is going to play them is going to give the shit kicked out of them. But yes, you know, they're finishing their big team. They've got Tom Wilson, they've got Hathaway, they've got Dylan Char, all these, all these big guys, but I think you look at how you best exploit a team like that. It's easier than 14. Like the Bruins, what their strengths to land punches against a team like the capitals on the ice in terms of you know, the X's and O's and it is the Penguins. Now, Penguins may not be nearly as big but you look at just the way the Capitals defense is, you look at how Scholl they are on defense, how the Bruins right now especially up front, all of a sudden have all this speed in their line-up. I mean they've God Top six is the top six even though Richie Crowley coiler the physical track and wine, those guys can move, you know, really Sean Crowley is, you know, a very good skater and events or fourth line. Now. It might depend on the match of, you know, do you want to roll out debrusk and kacchan? The 4th Line? Or is that one we go with Lazar with Frederick and Wagner so that, that can change a little bit in terms of the max but you look at the, the, the defense of the capitals have. I mean, the Bruins average close to three, three point six goals per game, against the capitals. The only team that scored more goals against against Atlantic division. Foes our East Division, foes was the same Choice which makes sense, not surprising, but the fact that, yeah, the fact that, you know, Washington who has a slow defense who do not really have to lead goalies in that, which, I mean, I think the biggest equalizer for how much the cap wasn't given the Bruins trouble of these has been because of brain. Hopefully now you've got vanicek and samsonov two guys who don't really ski all that money. Trade. I just look at the matchups and what the Bruins are going to go up against. Yeah, you're going to get knocked around quite a bit but it's

Crowley's interested in know this crowley. The what was very interesting about man is that he was just this very unspectacular looking guy just very average kinda guy but he had this incredible charisma and way of using his words. That would just walk people's minds into believing it and i was like.

Its bill on like this potentially rusty little the machine at of and then they polish this machine presented as the spectacle Slide surrounded such so like there. Is this like cheap vibe to crowley the you get in circus as such baugh is presented as they said mazing spectacle pure extravaganza of school. Everything like dirty gritty side and also just wonderful beautiful side. And i thought well there's already. Some delays now is i to take that on static because it's cool and combine that with the alistair crowley at mishmash over time crowley just continued to evolve. But that's where he came from anyway. That's amazing and i love the fire but that was also. We've the background in. The history of of wrestling is oversee. A lot was in the show. Grounds that you've been black hole and stuff like that.

How to Use Clubhouse with Monique Howard
"Coward. Welcome to the voice by podcast. Hi thank you brett fridge. Finding me here yeah. I'm excited have you. So i've noticed that you have been very active on clubhouse. I'm looking forward to getting your perspective on it but before we get into that. Why don't you tell the listeners. A little bit about you and your role in the voice industry great so i am the ceo and founder of smart goals. And what we do. Is we create voice apps in the tech space specifically geared toward helping the supporting kids with social emotional learning conversations skills. So we've been doing that. We actually got into it around right before the pandemic on a small team of women got together on very focused. And we're really intentional. When we create those apps because we think about things like fine motor skills. We think about things like reciprocal communication and we think about things like building vocabulary. So it really really intention. We create the apps. That's amazing it's like voice tech- for good yes. Yes yes yes. So we are really excited about it. we partner with schools as well as non profits to kind of get those Apps within the to to the kids who have been need them the most and the one thing that we find that they're fun right. They don't really know that they're learning. So i was really really fun and then it also gives something different from just looking at a screen all day of pink playing a computer game so the people that we partner with a really excited about goes apps created. Yeah what time to launch it is. Everyone is remote learning from home. Now they're looking for tools precisely like what you're offering exactly in the big thing about it. Is that his exposure for us. We understand that yes. Most people have a device on. But they're only using it the weather or directions or to order something and so this exposes the kids to something different especially for those in underserved community who may not have a device at home it gives them extra exposure to understand it. Hey this is something that i can do. Which has led us to start creating courses or classes for young kids so that not only they're exposed to it but also learn how to create apps of their own great all right so i'm really glad to have that background. I'm sure there's you've piqued the interest of a lot of listeners. Who are probably going to check out some articles which will get into it at the end. We'll give give everybody to see. Ta that they can go and check it out today. We're talking about clubhouse. I would say we're clubhouse friends. We've been at a lot of room together. We spoke together on which has been great because we didn't really have any interaction before that maybe a couple of times twitter or something like that but We hadn't had a chance to formally so this is extending it further. We're at the podcast together. I would say someone in the voice industry. Why don't you start out by telling us a little bit about when you joined and what your first experiences were on the on the network so i joined in november. Maybe kind of late november noel. Silver is actually invited me so she myself and another friend of ours. We actually met at the conference in new jersey. The first voice conference there. So that's where we met and we kept in touch on Motive exactly And so that's where we met. She invited myself. And another lady denise to the platform my initial experience was that it was a great place for really rich conversation. So i can just bounce from room to room here with people are saying and joining i likes. I really really enjoy the fact that i can either be just a listener and just soak all the information or i can actually be involved in the conversation and i think that's the point that we miss a lot in that when we're listening you we love podcast but we would love to acts that person who's leading the podcasts or the host to just ask one question so that was the big thing for me and besides not having to get on video all the time so it's always a great bonus but my first day was like a twenty four hour marathon twenty four hours twelve or twelve hour marathon just really feeling the full of a voice what clubhouse actually causes people to feel and But then i kind of sell the into. Where the niche did i wanted to actually start participating in which was tech. I'm still around businesses startups. And so those were the main room said i really gravitated to so it. Sounds like you started out mostly as a listener but you've become increasingly more active. And i think you're you're hosting rooms now. So what did you talk about what your evolution was like. Why you sort of moved to where you are today and how you're using it today. Yes so that was one of our goals would know out in these night got onto. The platform is to educate bis small businesses about voice So obviously we had to get acclimated to the environment. What was going on. But we quickly schedule rome every friday at two central to just have it introduction to 'em where we saw amazon alexa right just as most people know about that missile. We hosted those roads every friday little small sided with a small group than it grew a little bit larger. We don't have large I would say has gotten large over time. But it's not like hundreds and hundreds of people but we often get a lot of people who kinda combat time after time
The Mystery Of Houska Castle
"The most famous legend about host castle says it was built over a gateway to hell if that's true. Unfortunately there's no way to prove it. The question of whether a fiery afterlife exists is better left to theologians and philosophers but host gay isn't the only place that allegedly hides a portal to the underworld take for example. The stole cemetery. Otherwise known as america's most evil graveyard. It's a burial plot in remote. Kansas on the surface it's a bleak creepy looking necropolis. But according to legend it's much more just beyond the graveyard an abandoned church looms over the headstones and grassy walkways. Perhaps at one time it was elegant and beautiful but any hints of its old majesty have long since faded away by the nineteen nineties all that remained or a few crumbling brick walls without a roof. The church is significant because it supposedly sits atop a gateway to hell local legends says that in eighteen fifty lucifer himself emerged from the underworld afterward. Rumors suggested satan would rise in the graveyard twice a year. Once at midnight on the spring equinox and again on halloween and for decades locals apparently gathered for parties to watch the devils entrance only to be disappointed year after year when he never showed but while there may not be any satanic sightings inexplicable events have happened around stole cemetery in. It's church for example even though it doesn't have a roof the house of worship is said to always stay dry. Even when it rains people have reported seeing floating lights shadowy figures that vanish into nothing in rings of flame that appear out of nowhere these fires hovering the air. Even though there's no visible fuel source to keep them let you may be tempted to visit stole and see these phenomena for yourself if so you're out of luck rowdy. Crowds in supernatural enthusiasts. Repeatedly caused property damage forcing the owners to close the cemetery to the public in two thousand and two. The property managers demolished the church. It wasn't structurally sound and as far as we can tell. This destruction didn't unleash any demons upon the world which suggests the stories were just add stories but stole cemetery isn't the only alleged portal to the underworld in sunny southern california the la suburb of pasadena secret that surprisingly dark. The aptly named devil's gate dam was constructed in nineteen twenty two control flood waters coming down from the san gabriel mountains. The structure was named after a nearby odd-looking rock formation that vaguely resembles a horned devil face but before the dam was even built dark myths and legends suggested this stony shapes weren't the only demonic influence in the region in the nineteen forties. A man named jack. Parsons became convinced. That the devil's gate dam held other worldly power today. Corson's is famous for being one of the founders of the jet propulsion laboratory but he was also an occultist who belonged to alastair crawley's mystical secret society or does temporally orientalists. If you're interested we've covered croly and order tempe oriented extensively in our show secret societies but for our purposes. Here all you need to know is crowley was an extremely controversial occultist and magician once labelled the wickedest man in the world and he allegedly referred to the devil's gate dam as one of the seven gates of hell giving cronies association with the area. It comes as no surprise that parsons is said to have performed magic rituals at the devil's gate but some believe persons may have opened a portal to another dimension or to the afterlife itself. This sounds difficult to believe. But there's evidence to suggest that something strange was happening in around the dam in nineteen fifty-six a thirteen year old boy and an year old girl both went missing while biking through the area.
The President's picture
"Now back on election night in two thousand eight. I was sitting on the couch watching the news. My career in photojournalism at morphed into a career shooting weddings. Not because. I really wanted that because it paid money. Such is life and so there. I was sitting on that couch. Not working the most historical election night of my life. The crowd is reaching a million in grant park. The anchor said in washington. Tens of thousands of people are gathered at the white house. Some tv journalist explained breathlessly. And i couldn't take it anymore. I looked at the clock. It was eleven. I gotta go. I said to man where she replied. No i gotta go make a picture of something and so a jumped into my car and sped down a sleepy military road. And then i loved myself. Where would i find a parking spot near the white house. Isn't it funny. How logistics can be such a buzzkill aloft. Again you idiot. Forget the white house. Go to the lincoln. Martin luther king marian anderson. I have a dream. I figured there'd be thousands of people just like the white house was a ton of the twenty. Six as i walked up at tv crew was walking away. Nothing to see here. My fellow agenda said to me. Helpfully barack obama's speech from bronco was coming through the radio. My fellow citizens. I stand here today humbled by the task before us. Grateful for the trust. You've bestowed mind-mindful of the sacrifices borne by our ancestors. I felt lanka wounded into a candid camera prank twenty-six very quiet people who gathered around a single transistor radio in the steady drizzle. Not even a mile from where tens of thousands of people were screaming. Their heads off. It was around midnight and was very dark in the rain was fogging things up on my camera. But i'm made some pictures because that's what we journalists do the next morning at six. Am i emailed gone you at the new york times. I think. I wrote something like election night. Lincoln memorial twenty six people in rain in the subject filled to get his attention. Five minutes later. My phone rang. i chuckled. The photo ran the size of a stamp on the op-ed page of the times. The next day better than nothing. I thought then some woman named connie email me i say some woman comically because i didn't know her at the time she has since become a dear friend but back in two thousand and eight two days. After the election of barack obama. She was just columnist. I didn't know saying she wanted to write a story about my picture and she was on deadline so i called her back and some guy named sherritt answered the phone detecting trend here. Connie really needs to talk to you but she's just getting out show. Just hang on a few moments. She'll be here so i talked to share it for five minutes chatting about the election and everything and having no idea i was talking to a united states senator email. My sister woman named connie schultz interview today connie schultz. I love her. She's on msnbc all the time you dingo and connie wrote beautiful column. Everyone was excited for me. The grainy photo of the twenty-six folks in the dark and the rain that i shot for no publication in particular was suddenly gaining traction. My neighbor republican joe crowley loved it. He asked me if he could give some to his colleagues. I made copies. Joe gave them to members of the congressional black caucus he also brought one to the white house event and gave it to the president and that photo got framed and hung outside the president's study for eight years and that's where this story should end except that in two thousand sixteen after donald trump was elected. The new president-elect was invited for white house to by president. Obama and my old friend pete souza took a photo of that man. Sizing up the president's study. Will you see in. The photo is his orange hair as he pokes his head in and his hands on the wall right next to my framed photo. Pete's picture is awesome and that's where this story ends except for today because i've been getting e mail after e mail from people who've gotten their hands on president obama's memoir and in his memoir. He says that my photograph the slightly boring one of twenty six people standing in the rain is his favorite photo from his election night. His what president obama rights. But i worry the my memories of that night night so much else has happened these past twelve years a shady by the images that i've seen the footage of our family walking across the stage the photographs the crowds and lights and magnificent backdrops as beautiful as they are. They don't always match the lived experience in fact my favorite photograph from that nice isn't a drum park toll rather it's the one i received later as a gift. The photograph the lincoln memorial taken. As i was giving my speech. It shows a small gathering of people on the stairs that's is obscured by the dot is behind them. The giant figure shining brightly. Here face craggy is is slightly downcast. They're listening to the radio. I am told quietly contemplating who we are as people. And the ark of this thing. We call

Like i am. The world's biggest group you know. I've made way too many mistakes in my life. And you know too embarrassed to talk about most of We hide a lot from our offense because we're frayed that the other people may not want to hear it or resonate with it and we ended up tripping over our past man. And i'll tell you if you the and i'm not saying gotta put all your stuff out. You don't need to do that but i just did. A facebook live video literally before we jumped on about this topic.

Just go to movie or watch a movie you know. I wanna learn from everyday people that are struggling having financial relationship..
Dennis Crowley Co-founder of Foursquare and Creator of Marsbot
"You have four square. It's has this consumer heritage you've been using it from and From an enterprise standpoint for several years and then you went ahead and launched an alexa skill and google assistant up You said you didn't really get much traction from it now. Do you think you didn't get much traction from it because there's just a big discovery problem because consumers don't wanna use this because it was a It's designed initially as a mobile solution. Most people are using alexa and google assistant or at least alexa. google systems. More split like in home as opposed to on the road. What did you attribute to that like. Not being an appropriate channel for you to be pushing out foursquare functionality. Good question you know. We built it because we we experiment with every platform. That's out there and a big part of the foursquare labs the rnd group is. I want us to build for every platform because it enables us to have an informed opinion about what is good or not good. What works what doesn't work with that right so even if we something nobody uses it i can still win for us. We built for that. We understand it. We did it. You know now we can speak intelligently about it going back to the voice skills like when we were building this in the end parse out the the actual command to fire up to four foursquare skill like. Hey hey hey alexa ask foursquare to tell me the best restaurants he's village. It's just not something that real people are gonna do and you know. Visually look at the data for what people use these voices for in their homes. It's like you know what's the weather today. What time is it. Set alarm for your mac and cheese that i'm cooking In a place a music like it's not these complicated queries and so we tried it in an opinion about. And we kinda just shelved it right. Because i didn't think that was like the just wasn't wasn't worth throwing a lot of resources behind now if you'd would The default solution. I'm one of these platforms where they could have said Invoked the voice assistant of choice. And just ask the question without saying ask foursquare. Do you think that that would have made a big difference. I think it would have made some distant difference but also like you know planning where to go might not be the task you do in your living room in so it might be not the most appropriate thing to ask one of these things that sits on your like you know living room table in a when you talk about siri in having serious decibel on your phone or your airpods. Like you say he hit. Hey siri now. Just kind of cool. I think that as my theory goes off at more meaningful But i think we got We got some signals from apple early on that there was no intention to really like in its to to say. Hey i ask a question About a map past that over to forswear in so you would still have that mouthful of a sentence like a siri as where to do this thing which is just it. Just doesn't roll off the tongue Do that have you played with syria shortcuts at all a little a little bit but not not enough to fully comment on it. You have to install shortcuts though right as a user to to enable them at the very least so you could create a shortcut for four square and then basically publishing and then users could enable it or users can actually enable their own shortcuts for certain types of features at least two open apps we did. We played played with this. I mean probably a year ago it feels like forever. It'd be about the right team. we were. We were frustrated with the amount of hoops at the user to jump through to enable it. and it's like real arc de this early will do it but
interview With Dennis Crowley Co-founder of Foursquare and Creator of Marsbot
"Okay. Dennis crowley welcome to the voice. Podcast thanks for the beer. Yeah it's really good to see you again so we were just talking before we got on the bike in the video here that we met very briefly. I think we talked for about ten minutes after voice. Camp by beta works. Which i believe was june of twenty seventeen hundred times ago. Who has a lot of things happened since then and that was fun. I mean yeah. Companies like jovan came out of that. So there's a lot of listeners to my podcast very familiar with jovo and egg voice. I think was there as They're doing really well in the in the custom assistant space rag culture so that was a really Really good event. Very early on is reputed. We're starting to build custom assistance. And you're on stage. I don't remember exactly what your Your comments and prognostications were. But i'm sure they came true. I think we were talking about Voice skills at the time. I think i let alexa was opened to you. Know building your own voice skills. And i think we were. We force for likes learning with like. Should we make something there or not. Yeah and you'd never did correct. We did we made something for actually made something for google. Whatever google on google home google. Now whatever it's called sugarless assistant yet but we we. We launched them but we never really promoted it. I don't think. I even know it still works to be honest. We saw very williams at with that stuff as it's tough because you really have to say a mouthful just to get the thing to work like. Hey google assistant foursquare this. That's just not what normal people do. You know. That's really interesting So actually why don't we. I think most of the people who are listening are probably familiar with foursquare. But why don't we talk a little bit about your journey with foursquare what that does how that lets you up to the assistant. We'll talk about that. And then obviously. We want to spend a lot of time on mars. Because i think that's a really interesting solution. But for the people who aren't up to speed on the foursquare journey you know what you're what you're quick summary about how you got to where you are because you know a tremendously important company in many ways At least from my perspective And you know really at the at the onset of the bubble revolution in particular. And now we're in voice and you're doing something else in the space so i think it's really interesting. How you're jumping these technology curves. Yeah i mean we've been doing foursquare for for twelve years now and so forth. What has been a lot of different things in those twelve years kind of typical startup journey of trying a little bit of everything until you really figure it out but started as a consumer app Back in two thousand nine audience maybe fifty sixty million users which still wasn't enough In terms of you know running a at canal a product radio ads in the product. And so that's really when we started to understand that the destiny of the company was becoming more of an enterprise providing tools and technology to develop partners providing data a building advertising marketing solutions in robust analytics around types of people have been to what types of places You know really a lot of the things that he saw the consumer equitable to spin those into very valuable Tools and technologies for for others to use and company has has been doing really well since we've really figured out how that business works really changed the company to better serve those opportunities. Yes it was really a social connectivity app. I would say in the beginning. And it's moved into that data location business. Yeah you're you're you're working with enterprises. I will say that i still use the foursquare out. Yes why there's tons of people still use the apps and i think that consumer dna still runs very strongly. The company which i think gives us A unique perspective. When we're building had of these enterprise tools like normally think of enterprise stuff is like oh it's just software for companies but like we approach it as As as you would if you were building it for for end users and i think that allows us to be more thoughtful like more clever with it more playful with it sometimes And you know he was still a team here that works on the consumer apps. Like my my job now is run the the rnd team here which just makes weird stuff with the tools and technology in the most of that we are stuff is meant to be used by end users. Just people that are walking around was was phones or airpods. Whatever
Building a Start-ups CX Is a Creative Endeavor
"Chad. How are things today? Steve is great today looking forward to a conversation with our guests feels like a another guest that has a background is really relevant in twenty-twenty and we get to explore a company similar to our last guest doordash but in a slightly different Arena off doordash, you're right. It's it's going to be a really interesting conversation as you alluded to Our Guest today is calling Crowley. He's the vice president of customer experience at freshly and they are in the food Tech space and and really kind of the most in their own category. There are Weekly subscription service that delivers fresh gluten-free healthy Chef prepared meals in these meals are fully cooked. So all people dead. Do is reheat and eat. So when you think of it as you alluded to on the Continuum of Home Delivery, it's it's between doordash and our friend and and last episodes gas Anastasia story back and change their idea of of fully cooked meals delivered from restaurants. And then on the other side is something like Blue Apron which delivers you the ingredients and then you cook it and colon has had an interesting path to Fred. He's actually a published playwright and he started his career in the world of National Security working for think tanks in Washington DC and then he transitioned a customer experience working for e-commerce ticket company called ticket Network before moving to Freshly and he's been in freshly for just about five years now and I'm excited to talk to him because he's built their customer experience and support team from basically scratched and not having over 220 people and along the way he's the complete infrastructure of the customer experience including all of the structures of the procedures and and really the culture such ad. As we get into this conversation with calling. What are you looking forward to learning from him? I'm looking forward to learning from his creativity, you know, Colin having his background as a playwright you think about our previous guest we've got a DJ a jazz musician right? One of our guests had a background in Theology, and and today we have someone with a theater background, so I'm really interested in learning about the process that I went through that must have been a very creative process and building the CX infrastructure at freshly. Yeah. Absolutely. There's going to be a lot to talk about he's got so much to share about how he approached building this infrastructure. So let's go ahead and let's get started. Welcome Colin. Thank you so much for joining us today. Thanks is great to be here. Yeah, man, we're looking forward to this conversation. So it would be great if we could start out by maybe just having you tell us a bit about your background and what brought you to Freshly. Sure. Yeah, I kind of came into the customer experience space through a backdoor route. You may say initially studied history and political science and school and then I focused on what school security studies Worth US National Security. So it's going to have my my life working for a think tank or something like that cuz I like writing and researching and so forth. So I was down in Washington DC area and then ended up moving back up to the New England area because I'm from Massachusetts originally and moved up to help some family and I kind of divorced myself from any of the world of think tanks and so forth. So I ended up getting a job at the commotion take a network. Would you like one of the major competitors to Stubhub in the event entertainment in the event ticketing space and they were looking for someone who would come in and essentially do an analysis of their customer support infrastructure commend changes that would put it more in line with industry best practices. And the reason the CEO chose me was because I had the the communication background and I also had experience with The theater World cuz I'm also produced playwright. So I was just in the throes of getting one of my Works produced and really kind of co-producing that so he liked the the the blend of the Arts and the operational Logistics aspect of things off. So we kind of took a chance on me. So to speak and I stepped into this role and really dug deep down and learned my way through the industry and started to build up a team there especially in a customer support team and taking Network that ended up being about 14 people at its height and that dealt with certain higher-end clientele and I did that for about six years and also dabbled in some product management and things of that nature but was there too I moved to Freshly five years ago. So soon after the company was founded and we moved our headquarters to New York City and we just got in our series a and there was there's one other person in Customer Support who's staying with us as our senior training manager, but there was just one person there answering phone calls web chats emails Etc. And I was basically tasked with building up the customer support infrastructure from the ground up and Thursday. Really intrigued with the company and the product and just the excitement of being able to be a part of a company at that very very early stage. So I spent my first year and half so really until late 2016 just building the infrastructure of the team so high and hiring great people and creating a performance evaluation system and creating policies and creating tracking mechanisms for everything from customer satisfaction to customer issues and a training system and basically everything that you need for an organization to run smoothly. And then since then we really taken off we're home starting from 2017. We went from New York to open up a separate contact center out in Arizona and then we moved from Arizona to add some people in Maryland. And then Maryland we moved to add some people abroad So currently we have about two hundred twenty people in our customer support organization across five locations three in the US and two separate offices in the Philippines the little detours here and there we did some experiments and some other locations like wage. Africa and India so now I spend most of my time focused on some more overarching strategic issues and a lot spent in the technology space. So RPA and Ai and things of that nature.

But thankfully, the storm took a course slightly east of Lake Charles and Delta was a Category two Still strong, but not a category four like Laura and like Charles was already in a world of trouble from that earlier hurricane Hundreds of houses had blue tarps on their rooftops where the earlier storm had blown away pieces of the house.

How to Use Crystals & EOs Together
"I'm here with Haley Crowley who's the founder of whimsy and wellness? Haley. Believes in making wellness, simple, lighthearted and fun four years ago. She began making these really beautiful essential oil labels as a way to distract yourself from wondering when she would get pregnant again, armed with a silhouette cameo machine and a roll of vinyl. Haley sold the first whimsey and wellness products out of a tiny oetzi shop since. then. She's grown into a full family business with three kiddos running circles around her desk. Haley, on a mission to help people use crystals and essential oils in their every day life and make it fun in the process. Haley. Welcome to the show or so glad you're here. Thank you so much for having me I. Love Envisioning Your Kids just certainly on your on your desk because I have to myself. Just today we were packing up, you know mailers, sit out and just chilling out, help me stuff envelopes and it's fun to have a family business and it's also very chaotic. So I imagine you use some oils now and then to keep it calm. Yeah that's exactly right I. mean they're helping with like air quotes helping it really. Twenty Times longer but it's good they feel so important. Yes. Well. You said that you started making your beautiful pretty labels to distract yourself from wondering when you wouldn't get pregnant again is that part of your story tell me more about that yeah. So I started using oils actually as a way to like sent Christmas gifts like the that I was making I wanted to find a natural way to sent them, and so that's what started. Me With oils and then fast forward a couple of years. It was after our second miscarriage and I was like, I need something to do. I was in between jobs at the time and so I was like I'm GonNa. Just start this little at seaside thing to give me something to do and maybe bring a little bit of income like on the side for our family. And after a couple of months because we were one of the first essential accessory shops, it just took off and it just kept growing and growing and I kept working and it kept growing was that that was in two, thousand sixteen. So. Been Four Years Yeah and my husband now works fulltime with me and it's just getting more than I ever imagined. That's awesome. Well, this is not the topic of our interview today I want to get to crystals and oils soon, but I couldn't help it just pick up on the fact that you were using your side hustle a little bit as a therapy. You know let me need to distract myself I need to do something I just relate to that so much when I became a mom I really struggled with postpartum depression and doesn't that transition into parenthood was like a huge shock for me and along can of worms and long story we won't. Get into. But when I started, it was partly the reason besides from just sheer financial need that I started my business and it made me feel so much better. It made me feel like I'm pouring myself into something. It's mine. It's an outlet gifts. Me Gets me talking to other people it just really saved me away. So just related to that that aspect for she absolutely, and just what you said, I talk about that too like I felt like Lynsey wellness gave me purpose kind of like what you said like it gives me purpose and at the time I didn't think I was GONNA. Feel that until you know I, had a baby or babies but. With us it's crazy. It's almost the opposite, but it says such similar feelings. It's really interesting. It's funny. How per I? Mean we I think we are capable of having multiple purposes in one lifetime and even. More than one at the same time and sometimes that's what I need. I need more than one thing happening or I go crazy. So. Yes. Well, how did you start using crystals and essential oils together? Yes. So after I had seen wellness, we started with bottles and labels and. I was looking at product. I don't know what I was looking at but somehow I stumbled across these premade perfume blends and I saw on them. They had the roller top instead of it being like glass or stainless steel. It was made out of a gemstone a crystal and I was like, that's so cool like I want that for my customers who I know don't want to buy the perfume, they put their own oils in it. So I searched and searched and searched for so long five or six months to find a supplier. For these to offer them and it was so hard to find one without a little hole in it because all the stones at that size were spacey right and so I finally found a supplier and was hand making those on my couch watching TV at nighttime and everybody loved them. So I went to Tucson is the world's largest gem and mineral show that they hold once a year. I went there in search of a supplier that could make these for me because I couldn't do it myself anymore. And I didn't find that. But instead, I saw these giant piles of tiny crystals. And I was like those would fit inside of a roller bottle right and I had seen other people do that again in their own blends house like I wonder if people would like that as an option to and so I had no idea if people were actually going to like it but I was like well, I have to get something while I'm here I came all the way here. So I bought them and carried them in my carry on backpack and got stopped at security. But I think they're used to it because the gem show, but it was just so funny I'm like anyway. When? Oil Convention you know all TSA agents are like Oh yeah. There must be another oil convention that's. Smelt. Exactly yeah. They're used to it with the crystal show and so anyway fast forward to now everybody really loved that and just along the way I started of course learning more and more about crystals and just kind of doing my own research I feel like when I started this, there wasn't a ton of research like information out there about using oils and crystals together. So I felt like I just kind of research from a Bunch of different places in kind of put together my own I own research, my

I assumed to date Sfar more prostitutes than there were back. No, no way no I. Don't think so because it was more or less legal. We're happened in White Chapel. That's where the Jackie Cooper happen. Why Chapel was. A dingy ass like. You call it a ghetto. You could call it literally. It was a bunch of different ethnic had ethnicities, but. The fact that like it was just like poverty stricken and the only way you can make money was made a run, a bar or to like be a hooker shit. And that's why you know when they talk. About Jack The ripper is probably very easily readable that like all these feel ready ready to go ready to fuck, and they cut them all up and five seconds ready to go ready to. The ripper handedly stop prostitution. So! Obviously, you know at the time. You've talked about the time then late eighteenth century. Lost syphilis and sex diseases. So he contacted a sex disease from fucking a hooker or was it. And a see, I didn't really say it is even in the documentary. It's just a sex disease or like an estimate house like you could have just been an STI. STI STD's. We've changed it because it's an infection or sorry, not meant syphilis. We says thing when you.

There's always driving me nuts. It's like everyone gets a UTI. Urinary tract infection. That's there, but that's super common, and it could have been. Something is little, is the. No, but I think it was like syphilis was so run branded at the eighteenth century of people's fucking crazy. You know what I mean so. I, just thought he might have had syphilis, and it'd be fuxing. Be passing it because he fought the law of people. In his life so to spread, that will be fucked up A. I don't know maybe like fucking the clap or something right? You know what I mean because I think syphilis, I think he would have been affected healthwise like pretty quickly. It kills you like pretty fucking quick. I'm not. GonNa I don't know I'm not. I'm not an expert on syphilis. So maybe it was blew off which is? I don't know how this happened. Now. They found out, or would you say maybe it was blue off you? Know what that is! So after contracting the sex's from the hooker weird. I wonder how they do this or they're like in the shower remained. Else to go on his. He was kicked out from the private school. He was attending, so it was a private school. Yeah, they'd probably like inspect the boys. Show me Your Gut's. Swapped, get into fucking. Obviously, you shave them. You had sex. Back to our fish, we'll get into him, but he was like at a private boy school, and he would look in joy when the nuns would beat him and shit like that so like are you know makes sense? Maybe but so we started playing chess becoming a great player. He's actually really good. At Chess, league tournaments and ship. It is Kinda shows that he did have intelligence like in to be able to be very good chess. You have to be pretty fucking smart. You know what move is going to be next honest and. beat me.

Though Ones of last time I've ever heard anyone name Alastair. I. Don't know one person. I feel like I might have heard that name somewhere, but I don't personally know anybody.

Effects On Coronavirus On People With Disabilities
"The crown of lockdown police say the whole word the coronavirus lockdown and the virus itself present special challenges for people with various kinds of disabilities it may also present some new opportunities such as greater acceptance of working or studying from home but depending on the kind of disability someone has shopping transportation unemployment the ability to get needed healthcare workers to come into your home lots of different things require navigating corona world in new ways with us now to talk about his work and to take calls with your experiences from anyone with any kind of disability is Victor Crowley C. commissioner of the New York City mayor's office for people with disabilities commissioner of police you thanks so much for coming on today welcome to WNYC thank you Brian it's a pleasure to be here would you like to introduce yourself to our listeners a little bit first before we get into people's lives and the issues because I see you've described yourself as a person with a self disclosed disability so would you say how you describe that and then basically what your mission is as commissioner of the people with disabilities office sure I am a person with a disability I am in a wheelchair I was injured in a mountain bicycle accident when I was twenty two years old and it absolutely turn my life around I was a plumber before I was injured and trying to navigate that world and trying to figure out what's next in my life going back to school realizing that education was the key to moving forward to employment was it was important to me and I accepted the disabled world the first through adaptive sports of competing in the Paralympic Games in nineteen ninety eight in Nagano Japan and then eventually working my way through nonprofit organizations and and landing a job with the parts department and eventually is the commissioner of the mayor's office with people with disabilities yeah in twenty twelve so what is our office do you our office is around to ensure that everything the city has to offer is equal to people with disabilities so for looking after our streetscape to ensure that it's acceptable for people disabilities we're looking at our parks department our cultural institutions to ensure that people with disabilities are represented not only in visiting the places but also adds August so we want to make sure that everything the city offers is acceptable to people with disabilities so listeners we'd like to invite anyone with any kind of disability to call in to talk to Victor Crowley C. commissioner of the mayor's office for people with disabilities especially about ways the coronavirus era is changing things for you that's the topic for this call in or anything you think public policy should address in that respect six four six four three five seventy to eighty six four six four three five seventy to eighty help us report this story how was the corona virus you know changing things for you or someone you know with any kind of disability and what could the commissioner's office for people with disabilities stand to know about your experience that may help them have the best city government response six four six four three five seventy to eighty six four six four three five seventy to eighty if you want to talk about yourself or someone you know will help us report the story commissioner office said you might want to talk about how people with disabilities lives are going to change after call of it including how society has changed with work from home and study from home distance learning what are you thinking about those changes in terms of challenges or maybe even opportunities absolutely challenges across the board and all of them but this this certainly presents a unique opportunity to change the way that employment education recreation and health care costs are delivered so if we talk about accommodations in the workplace and as we move forward in diving into what the future of work is going to look like we have to insure that it's acceptable and they have those accommodation for people disabilities it can be anything from a screen reader to changing a person's schedule and the list goes on and what we heard in the past is that we can't work from home because it's it's not doable but since the coronavirus come came and is with us right now everybody's working from home and understanding that it is a possibility is certainly a bright spot for people disability because we've been doing this for so long we've asked for these accommodations and have not necessarily receive that now we are concerned about the us add that second we started a program called NYC at work it's a public private partnership to ensure that we employ people with disabilities now the opportunity is that we can go online we can work but not everyone has access to some of these effective communication devices or computers or cell phones and all that because people disabilities within poverty so we really need to be able to employ people so they can get the resources they need so they can prosper in work remote education we've certainly seen this change department of education has gone from a school based model now to virtually online and a matter of a matter of days and making sure that we provide the effective equipment for people with disabilities disabilities such as iPads and then making sure that our systems are accessible making sure that the E. learning platforms are accessible to people for kids with disabilities I think that that is really important meaning that you can read TD asset they have captioning and that my wife is a physical therapist and right now she is working from home providing physical therapy to some of those kids that actually need it and what is telehealth look like and telehealth is if we hear of everything that happened during the corona virus this is changing the landscape of that but we need access to that equipment to ensure that happens as well but as recreation from whole look like other departments of parks and recreation is put together a video encouraging people to work out if you have a disability and what types of exercise programs you can have this long with the New York road runners club and Achilles track club I mean these are things that are based here in New York and we want to keep people of state active so technology can certainly drive this but being employed as an important part of it Sam in Inglewood you're on W. NYC with Victor Crowley C. from the New York City mayor's office for people with disabilities hi Sam hi thank you so I mean New Jersey I used to work for twenty five plus years in New York City so my question is kind of a a global one we fought very hard here in New Jersey to make sure that the at those are intellectually disabled on the severe and many of whom were ours are in larger facilities the so called developmental centers got tested for covert nineteen as well as all the staff it seems to me and to us looking trying to find data from other states and cities that are those who were disabled particularly particularly severe and are are sitting ducks in a lot of different ways we think the state cared in New Jersey but we still have to push it very very hard to get our folks properly taken care of so I'm just wondering what what if anything you might have to say about how we as a society protect those who were severely disabled particularly intellectually but in other ways too in the in Europe coke at nineteen I'm so glad you brought this up Sam because there's so much focus on nursing homes in particular we know what's been happening there and it's hot horrific but there are other kinds of group living situations that involve people with particular needs and that presumably would also make them vulnerable so commissioner how about that yes very it's it's a big concern and people with disabilities were concerned about this as soon as Copeland had now I've gotten calls from advocates say we to make sure that healthcare but held home health care workers and personal care attendants are essential workers we need to make sure that they're protected and that was a balance at first because we needed to make sure that the front line workers at the hospital had all the protective equipment that they needed to add once we were solid with them we were able to secure a protective equipment for people with disabilities and we were able to take them delivered them to our service providers you therefore sent into healthcare workers and people with disabilities and making sure that that happens because the reality is if health care workers come into a home and get a person with a disability second they flood the hospitals that's a problem so we want to see that so once we were able to you secure protective equipment such as masks and gloves we we've delivered over a hundred thousand of them already and we're continuing to keep a list of that but we don't do this in a bubble right we like to think we know everything but the important part is to be really kidnapped what the disabled community we hold a weekly call so I understand what the concerns are with the community and we have hundreds of people on those calls because we give them updates will will we bring in people from other agencies to talk about the issues that are happening so everyone stays informed along with our website me and make sure the website has all the content on there and it's not just about a website that has information you have to make sure that that the information is accessible to the PDF's of the video to social media all of that is a constant reminder of acceptability because people with disabilities have different needs so it's delivering equipment to the people that need it and it's also making sure that the the way that we deliver things are accessible Gardner in Manhattan you're on W. NYC with commissioner Causey hi Gardner hi there Brian great to be on the call of the you guys are doing the show the segment thanks so I have to read them grow which is the neurological disorder that leads to a lot of like motor and vocal tics as we call them the most well known stereotype is people cursing uncontrollably which actually only about ten percent of people actually do with threats and I'm just curious because you know Mike that currently is a pretty loud throat clearing sniffing which any normal time you know there's a lot of anxiety and other people so I'm not taking the subway or anything right now but I just wonder what the city can be doing to acknowledge disabilities like that they're not as identifiable in public but the keeper could do with a lot of you know hostility which I've been saying basically my whole life in a place like New York you probably need to call in to radio shows more because you haven't done it once during this call but I but but I get it commissioner if you're yeah your point is that if your tech is a lot of throat clearing and people are gonna think you have the virus and you're gonna get stigmatized everywhere you go right oh yeah oh yeah and I felt that my whole life with you know point flu it's just people being worried worried about you know being second there's there's no amount of cover my mouth if you do that you know can can quell the you know the hostility of the negative person unfortunately yeah and you raise the consciousness of people just by saying that commissioner anything to add to that briefly

"Alister Crowley. Now there's been a lot said about this guy. While he was alive and still after his death countless people have demonized him making him out to be some kind of insane madman was even labeled as a wickedest man in the world by the English press. He really didn't help any matters concerning his reputation either because he referred to himself as the great beasts six six six deepak elliptic antichrist's from the book of revelation in the Bible. This may just raise eyebrows in modern times. But during Crowley's age this was pretty much. I guess social suicide in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries basically ninety percent of people were either conservative or at least some kind of dominate denomination. I mean of Christians. Croly in his day was probably was essentially a modern rock star born back. In Victorian Times he was a nonconformist in a sea of conformity who relished an attack in the world views of the masses. But you'd be that. Some very valid reasons led him down this supposedly dark path just like anything. Religion can be used for both good or evil and basically anything between early in life. Curly suffered heavily from the oppressive religious dogma zealots which was the the which was the inspiration for his lifelong war against Christianity. This end his dealings with esoteric. Traditions would even lead many to calling him a satanist which after a lot of research turned out to be kind of ridiculous only people who don't really know him more. Steffi was into believe that kind of stuff he didn't even believe in any of that kind of stuff in the Christian context but it is very true that from his own point of view he saw religion is evil. Sorry let me clarify the Christian religion however I do understand why some people would call him a satanist but the whole thing reminds me of one of my favorite quotes by the Great Carl. Young thinking is difficult. That's why most people judge Elster Crowley would dedicate his wife to the study of the colts though he was also an extremely talented poet. An expert chess player and a legendary mountain climber. In fact there's a lot about the man's life that makes him extremely interesting. When I starting the research for this episode I thought he was just basically a pampered. Initially never worked a day in his life but croly actually suffered a lot of hardship and overcame insane. Odds on many occasions croly was known to be pretty hard to deal with. He never claimed to be good and indeed never really even wanted to be he would be the first to admit it in Crowley's worldview. He embraced good just as much as bad as long as it was quote strong to put it in his own words though he could also be very cruel but never for no reason curly was also very generous and kind those he admired or considered friends taking care of people and spending vast amounts of money to help them though usually not directly. He had a personal code against lending money to people. His legendary cruelty comes from the stories of his enemies for the most part of press and whatnot or other occultist or people who crossed him or at least perceived threats crossing him. There's no doubt he could be pretty. Petty and Croly was indeed capable of extremely horrible acts. He could make casually with no remorse whatsoever. Which when seen out of context makes him look like I guess pretty vile and the Gutter press had a field day in dragging his name through the mud throughout his entire lifespan. So it's no wonder that the mainstream everything has a pretty dark view of Alister Crowley but what about the man behind the public image or trade to the masses? What made someone with a genius. Level intellect like him believe in magic and dedicate his life to the colts is a lot of people. Don't really know about him. In this way. More questions than answers. Croly was also an author and even a spider and were one in his pursuit of higher knowledge and spiritual enlightenment. He would treble across basically entire world. You had a lot of money so there is no limit on what you do or where could go well for the most part justness early life. He went broke later in life in his world. Travels he'd learned the core tenets of Buddhism and become a master of Yoga like a weird version of it in fact the man would become an expert in Hinduism to among many other ancient religions. This guy's brain was really really big alister. Crowley never did anything half ass committing himself to all he did with an intense passion rarely seen in human beings. There really is no denying. The man was an incredibly gifted genius from an objective point of view. He was way way ahead of time and larger than life. I mean he could do some pretty ridiculous things. That at first seem unbelievable. I mean croly could beat people at chess with his back turned to them. You even close his eyes during it. Just visualize the board in his imagination and played with perfect accuracy. How crazy is that? It's it's pretty obvious that a lot of people who've covered Alister Crowley have taken the old saying. Never let the truth get in the White House. Go never let the truth. Get in the way of good story to heart if you watch videos on Youtube about him. There's often stereotypical creepy music in the background and many other ridiculous liberties taking with presenting his life story. So much to the point that I found most of it At least the mainstream stuff to be unreliable basically turning solely to literature in an attempt to get a clear picture of so. Let's do our best to take an objective and unbiased. Look at the man behind the myth and discover just to Alastair Crowley. What's I'm your host Tim Hacker and thanks for listening to cryptic chronicles.
