Fresh update on "david brown" discussed on Our Body Politic
"Social workers hard. To the job of law enforcement, And so I realized we had to do two things. We had to arrest bad people those who hurt innocent people, But we also had to deal with those quality of life issues that cause decay and communities in the first place. During my time in law enforcement, I worked with some of the most professional Some of the most courageous men and women of all colors doing my time there, but we do know especially and I think the death of George Floyd Has really put a spotlight on what's wrong in policing and it should be because we want to get it right. You know what happened to George Florid was brutal. It was senseless and it was murder and the persons responsible should be an are being held accountable. But I also want to make it clear that no great society can't exist without law enforcement, you know, with someone who has walked and talked with people in Central Florida in Orlando, it's interesting people who live in the most vulnerable communities and the most crime ridden communities. Say they don't want us to defund the police. They want to see more police because they know if funds were taken away. Then they feel like resource is will be taken away from their communities. They just want police officers that treat them with dignity and respect. Officers who are well trained and professional. We all should want that. You know, I love to quote the words of former Dallas police Chief David Brown. He's now the commissioner in Chicago. But, he says Every time there is a societal failure. We call the police to solve it. Not enough mental health counseling available. Give it to the police, not enough drug addiction treatment. Funds available. Let the police handle it. Schools fail Call the police. They'll take care of it. You know, When did we start calling the police when a middle schooler won't sit down in her seat or won't give up her phone, And so it's not about taking resource is away from the police. But it's about being serious about funding those programs that are dressed quality of life issues that cause decay and communities in the first place. And so just wrapping up as you are thinking about. What impact you want to leave behind? What kind of a man in America do you want to see Emerge from? You know these turbulent years that we're in right now? I grew up in Florida. I am the youngest of seven Children. My mother was a maid and my father was a janitor. I watched my parents worked hard every day. But when it was time to vote, they would dress up and head to the polls knowing that their vote mattered, just like the richest family in town. I cannot remember a time they did not vote. I look at my own life and because of the hard work they did for me and for our family, my siblings We've been able to do some amazing things. I feel a direct responsibility and obligation to make sure that every boy and girl who looks like me and those who don't look like me that they have a chance to live The American dream just as I have Representative Deming. Thank you so very much for joining us. Thank you so much. That was Congresswoman Val Demings, Democratic representative for Florida's 10th district. Coming up later this hour. It doesn't necessarily mean it increase opportunities for those who actually win the awards. You know Halle Berry very famously, even recently. You know, this was the year. I think.

"Enough to remember the newton which was really the first tablet of sorts right but it was it was ahead of its day wasn't certainly was and this was at a time when you may recall steve. Jobs had been pushed out of apple because of a board room confrontation so this was in the period. When jobs was sort of in the wilderness apple came up with a wide range of devices. They had an apple camera once upon a time. You know this. We're talking about the nineteen nineties here. A lot of people loved the idea of the newton because it sort of pointed. Its way to the obvious future that there would be a kind of device where you could keep track of everything but he kind of over promised. Anyway steve jobs gets brought back into apple in the late nineties and he sees all of these products all across a range of of consumer electronics. That apple is now sort of dabbling in and what he does before anything else before the ipad long before the iphone he knocks away. Everything that apple's been working on during those years. When he was in exile he went. Is it down to four things. And they're all basically max and what he does. He reestablishes apple as a computer company. And this gets to another lesson. That i think comes out and that is you can't do a whole lot of stuff well especially if you're chasing after number one at the time it was all about apple versus pc right. I mean that was it leads to the computer space if apple wanted to win that in a needed to if it really wanted to grow in a sustainable way it had to get rid of all the stuff that was taken away from its focus and so that was one of the controversial things that steve jobs did but what that allowed him to do four or five years later is come out with this device. That didn't seem so revolutionary at the time there have been other. Mp three players but that ally pod started something that shoot we're still experiencing it today in this podcast. It's funny. I was talking to someone the other day. I where do you think they. They got the the word podcast from they didn't know. Is that ipod. You know. I i have one of the original ipod with the disc that physically moved in circles at home and it was really just a an incredibly elegant little device but none of us knew at the time that it would really set the stage for the iphone and all that would come. I bet you can get five hundred bucks for that on ebay. Maybe maybe i. I have to keep my wife and throwing it out but but no i. It is what's extraordinary as we often lose a lot of the complexity of these stories. Right i mean we just we tell the apple story as if it was inevitable and we forget to stumbles and and i think this is part of it. So informative about the business wars Some of the companies that appear in the book have been profiled in the business whereas podcast but a lot of them are new for fans of the show who are already familiar with some of these stories. What's different about the book. Well it's it's certainly w- what you're gonna hear for instance we've done Apple on our program. But we haven't really explored for instance. Steve jobs in the iphone in particular. Because that's a battle into itself with research in motion There's another we talked about ford versus chevrolet. But there's an exceptionally interesting story about mary. Barra who led the rebirth of general motors. And when she ends up at general motors It's not enough for her to say. Yeah we want to be competitive. We want to be competitive..

You probably didn't have blockbusters. Did you have blocked jason lately. Yeah okay well so there you go. So everyone kind of connects to these major brands. Right and in fact a lot of us feel very think about how you have apple people windows people. I mean we invest a lot of our identity into these brands. Will that i think is what business wars is all about. We're sort of looking at these battles between these titans. A lot of these brands that have become household names. And we're looking at it from the inside out so sometimes you get a sense of how. The ceo or the entrepreneur started up a business because they wanted to get rich or they just wanted to get someone's attention sometimes. It's because they want to beat the other guy you know. They think they can do computers better. You think about the steve jobs story for example is those kinds of stories and when we started to go deeper and started to do some the early research on the program we realized. Wow it's calm surprising that this hasn't been mind more. You think about the recent movie. What is it the movie about. Ford and ferrari in a way. That's a kind of business where unto itself and it's so cinematic and there are these larger than life characters behind the scenes and those are the kind of characters we try to bring out in business wars usually at six episodes over the course of about three weeks or so with two episodes coming out every week and each of them has about thirty minutes long and at the end of these six episodes quite often will spend another thirty minutes doing an in depth interview with someone perhaps someone who wrote the book on this particular business war or maybe someone who knows a lot about the industry that kind of thing. That's what business was is all about. How did you come to host one of the most popular business. Podcasts wasn't an idea that hernan lopez the founder of came with or was it. Something you suggested it was it was actually not neither a. We didn't know each other he used to work for. You probably heard of the fox networks. I think there's a famous australian behind some of that famous. Yeah well he used to work for the international arm of that and he saw what was happening with podcasts. Several years ago and so he'd come up with this idea. Well i used to be the host of a program on public radio here in the states. it's called marketplace. Still on the air and it's a national public radio style program and it's heard across the country and i was based in l. a. And while there. I made a lot of great friends and rub shoulders with a lot of really terrific producers and one of those producers ended up at wondering in la. And i had since moved from los angeles to austin texas which is why more met now. And one day. I get this call. And it's from one of the former producers at marketplace and she says. Hey i'm working over wondering what's wondering whether it's a script podcast platform and my boss. I told him about you because he has this idea for business wars. Would you be interested in talking with him about it. He got on the line and he said i'll send you over a script and maybe we can just <hes>. Just wanna hear you talk. And so we started talking and he said well. If you'd like it we'd love for you to do it. And it all happened very quickly. And i didn't really know what i was getting myself into. I figured maybe this will be a three or four shows and so now here it is about to two years at a couple of months into it later and <hes>. We now have gosh. I don't even know how many episodes out there now but a lot

"Welcome to David Brown's commencement speech at the University of Texas Austin in two thousand, seventeen in David Z. former chief of the Dallas Police Department. I am so humbled to be here to address you. I have a quick story in the aftermath of the tragedy in Dallas that President Fend vicious referred to there was an outpouring of appreciation and support for law enforcement that poured into the city of Dallas to police headquarters through letters from well-wishers. My staff was inundated going through the letters and trying to read as many as they could one particular morning I came into the office and my assistant Miss Ramos was reading a letter from the boxes of letters that had come through one at a time. This particular letter had University of Texas posts on it and she was crying as she was reading it. I walked in saw her crying. And asked what was wrong Emili chief you've got to read this letter just like that back. I grabbed the letter walk into my office, closed the door and started reading the letter. The letter starts you may not remember me but my name is lance and we were on a Greyhound bus, our freshman year heading to Austin I immediately remembered lance the letter went onto recount our conversation on that bus ride here in Austin from Dallas he talked about are talking and laughing and joking becoming friends by the way Lance's white, and if you haven't noticed I'm black at the end of his letter lands asked this question to me why did you decide to sit next to me? You could've sat. And I sit back in my chair I didn't cry by my allergies were acting up. I thought about why I sat next to Lance I grew up in a poor inner city Dallas neighborhood? Lance grew up and he similar situation in a different states on the bus I noticed he didn't have anything to eat every generation of my family brought me down to the Greyhound bus station with a sack of lunch I sat next Lance intentionally we talked and we talked I could tell he was hungry I could tell you didn't have any money I noticed poor when I see it because I was poor in yes. I did hi, my sack lunch from Lance I did but eventually I offered them part of my sack lunch we ate and we became friends after we arrived on campus of Ut Austin with thousands of students he was on the other side of campus and I was on the other side of campus and we never saw each other again until he writes this letter, he asked why did you sit next to me?

"And this happens all the time in business. One example I mean with the blockbuster, for example, blockbuster hit become such an incredible. that. They couldn't believe that it was possible for some upstart to come out of the blue and do things better than they could. It was that basic they just couldn't imagine that some upstart could come out and distribute DVD's wasn't streaming. It was about sending you dvd's in the mail. They couldn't believe that would be a better business model than the brick and mortar stores that they had all over the world. It was just inconceivable to these folks, and then once that model took off, blockbuster scrambled to try to replicate it and figured well, if these guys can do it goodness, we can do the same. We'll just copy their website. It was the weakest kind of response, but it was very much driven by a sense of we can do no wrong and that is. Consistent, you find it in almost every business war you have someone who is the reigning champion and they just don't see the rival coming and by the time they do it's too late and when they're scrambling to try to catch up, they have to really kind of reinvent themselves and if they don't reinvent themselves, they often die they often fall by the wayside. So. Yeah. I. Mean you start to see little patterns like that that come out but that's I think what makes in general these clashes of Titans so interesting is that you can sort of see it coming. You can see it coming where's it going to happen all? No. It really is about people needing to get out of their own way and the human instinct drive people either positively or negatively. Oh. Yeah. When you refers to these titans of business I, mean some of the business was covered a businesses that go back more than one. Hundred? Years. And we say them now with these huge businesses. But what I find interesting is that in many cases, they speak businesses have gone through like the market later and then almost been overtaken and then come back in recent decades later again, I think that was really fascinating how it's all about the people who's in charge of the right time making those gut fuel decisions to get the. Business back to its former glory I think you're right about that and I think part of what's telling about that is often you have to bring in people who are completely fresh who feel like they owned this business that used to be the champion and is now struggling they have to sort of own it and they become a kind of quite often a personification of that business. There are some classic examples. I. Mean if you think of Steve. Jobs or Elon Musk or any of the greats that's where it's the most vivid. But in almost every instance of what you're describing there I mean you could talk about Mattel or you could talk about Coca Cola, you talk about any number of giants you could say, well, that's what happens. Somebody fresh had to come in there and say, Hey, this isn't right. We used to be on top and now we're going to think like the underdog. And SORTA start with, a fresh perspective in realizing that. Oh, you can't take any of that stuff. You can't take the past for granted. You can't take your past success as any kind of indication of future performances they say, never for listeners that are looking to produce to earn podcast..

"From wondering, I'm David Brown. And this is business. In our new six part series USFL versus NFL we drop in on a time before the National Football League was a seventy five billion dollar juggernaut back when it own not just Sunday afternoons but Sunday nights and Monday night and Thursday nights. This was a time before the lead performer at the Super Bowl halftime show is deemed international news before Tom Brady and Pat, Mahomes and Odell Beckham were household names. Back to a brief span in the early to mid nineteen eighties. When an upstart spring league, the USFL came along and tried to spike football on the NFL's own turf. It started a high stakes competition that involved stealing players taking over market and desperately trying to change the face and feel of America's most popular sport. This is episode one birth of league. Now here in twenty nineteen it's hard to imagine a rival entity causing the NFL, much stress. As of this moment to new football leagues, the XFL and the alliance of American football are planning launches within the next year. The NFL is responding like a lion with a flea landing atop its main even with its issues. The NFL is the biggest show on the planet and untouchable sports. Monolith. August seven nine thousand nine hundred sixty one it's a steamy day in New Orleans and local businessman. David Dixon is pissed. He slams down the phone. He can't believe what he's just heard from the NFL's treasurer the league's chosen Minneapolis as the location for its next team, Minneapolis. This has to be a joke. Clinches his fists, but feeling frustration familiar by now, though Dixon is just thirty seven. He spent the past decade trying to land an NFL franchise in his hometown of New Orleans to Dixit a football team takes a city from the minor leagues to the majors. It means. You don't merely exist on the map, you're a destination. And he was a sure New Orleans would be next Dixon walks into his kitchen whereas wife notices, he's clenching his jaw bad news. They rejected us again. I really don't know how much more this. I can take. Well, there'll always be another chance Willer will there. There Dixon's frustration morphs into anger, and that anger morphs into rebellion. He loves the NFL. But does he really need the NFL? You know, the only reason football is known as a fall sport because Rutgers and Princeton played the first ever game in the fall. Do you know that those teams had played in the spring football? Probably be a spring sport. Don't you think? So why not a spring football d why wouldn't that work? Mary has no answer two years later in the spring of nineteen sixty three Dixon finally takes action. He flies to LA Hoya California to visit the house of Paul Brown. The legendary Cleveland Browns founder and former head coach after nearly two decades. He's recently been fired by the franchise. He created Dixon knows. There's no love loss between Brown the NFL.
