"Whole new type of bold in a Honda SUV, see your local Honda dealer. It's two 40 about 3.6 million Americans will turn 40 this year. However, 40 looks a lot different these days are reported by the non nonpartisan think tank new America shows those born between 1981 and 1996 earned 20% less than the baby boomers did. They also have fewer assets than gen xers in the at the same age. So what's going on? Journalists Mark elwood joined WTO's Mark Lewis to explain this phenomenon. Essentially, what's happened to them is they are hitting that crisis in midlife and they don't have the assets that the previous generations had to indulge when their panicking. So they're having to panic in a whole new way. They graduated into a recession so they didn't do so well early on in their careers and they're reaping the rewards now or rather not reaping the rewards. What is different in terms of how they're reacting at this age? What aren't they doing compared to those who are older? Well, I think when you picture a midlife crisis, I think you time walk back to the 60s. You think about Don Draper and you imagine a white middle class man having an affair on buying a car, right? These people, they don't get a tattoo as an axe rebellion. They might remove one because almost the majority of millennials have a tattoo. They don't have the money to buy a car, but they're going to go on a vacation, a hiking vacation, try and test themselves physically instead of splurging on a little compensation in car form. Is this panic time for them? Good question. I think they are feeling pressures like everyone in middle age. But the issue is that they're more than ever the sandwich generation. They had kids later, their parents are getting older. And so their panicking because they're poorer and there are more drains on their resources. So I think anyone would panic in most circumstances. Makes you wonder what this possibly means down the road when they're looking at retirement? Is there also a challenge with their nest eggs? Oh, totally. And again, if everyone's assets, you look at all the data around millennials, they are behind previous generations in terms of any assets they've accrued. We talk about getting onto the housing ladder. That's much harder for them. And there's a big cohort of these people who are going to end up in retirement much less plush off than we assume they would be even the white collar ones. Journalist Mark elwood, coming up, rob wood forecast the details on a historic NBA All-Star Game. Consumers flex some muscle with their January spending. I'm

"don draper" Discussed on Effectively Wild: A FanGraphs Baseball Podcast
"Position players in the game today. You need some facts to back it up. Since 2019, in the second best position player in baseball, according to fan graphs, with 20.1 F war. Don Draper saying fangraphs isn't done him a Cardinals fan. Yeah. Famous like a weird what's up with that, I guess. He lives in LA. Yeah, he's an actor, he reads lines that do not reflect his personal beliefs that's what acting is, I suppose. I assume it was a paid gig and that just fandom of Trey Turner. Anyway, what about your guys in this class if you have any? Is there anyone who you think might be a better value than the consensus? Or I guess the opposite, someone you're wary of, but someone who, if you're investing your funny free agent hypothetical dollars, you would be eyeing more so than you would be eyeing other players who were perhaps in a comparable class. Well, if any team wants to sign me to actually allocate their real money, as GM to be clear, team if you're listening, hit me up. No entry level positions. Yes. Okay, I'll give you three guys who I think could return better value and one who I think is being overrated by the broader community of people doing this. And then tell me which minor league free agents you would say. So I really, really, really like Taylor Rogers relative to the consensus. Taylor Rogers has been a really good reliever for a number of years. Hillary Rogers was not even a battery for this year. He had a lousy September, just like an absolutely gobsmacking that allows you September for the brewers. But I mean, people think he was bad on the Padres. He was not that of the Padres. He ran a three 33 babbitt and a 60% left on base rate, both of which are just now. Wildly bad. And despite that, had two 34 5th, I guess that's not despite that. But if you strip that out, he was really good. He was really good last year. It was really good in 2020. Like he was really good in 2019. He was really good in 2018. He just seems like an obvious, nice reliever, bulk up the back into your bullpen, just easily. And I don't know, people think that, you know, he gave up some home runs, so he's bad now. It doesn't make that much sense to me. So I've seen that people think he's a borderline top 50 free agent. That's wild to me. If you can sign him for that kind of money, just do it. One that I'm not going to harp on too long, 'cause I've already talked about it a little bit is Tyler Anderson. I think he's good. And if he would take one of these discounted deals, you should sign him to that because I think he's actually great now. He does this take all the tylers and Taylor's. He does ten Clements. I'll put them on angels, just for your guys maximum enjoy that. So Tyler Anderson throws not just two different fastballs, but from two wildly different arm slots. So against lefties, he's like a side arming sinker cutter flick slider guy. And then against righties, he's more over the top. And he actually throws his cutter from the same session as his fastball to both sides. So if he's throwing his sinker, he throws it like 5 feet off the ground. And if he's throwing his forcing, he throws it at 6 feet off the ground. And he mirrors his cutter to that. And that's really cool. He started doing it last year and has really leaned into it this year. And I think that actually makes him a lot better than he was before because he's now just two different pictures and, you know, he's the platoon maximizing type against lefties. The low arm slot sinker slider, and then he's the platoon neutral guy against righties. The kind of high arm slot, four seam change up type. And that's really cool. I guess it's more cutter than change up, but he's got a bunch of pitches is the point. And his ability to kind of mix and match those. I think it's really valuable and not easy to pick out from the numbers. Teams will pick this out, obviously. They're no dummies. But I think that his particular mix of pitches is very useful. I think I said slider when I talk about him and met cutter, but the point remains like the way that he changes his pitches to opposite handed batters. I think makes him play up relative to what you'd look at from his stuff, and he was really good this year. So I would try to get him. Lastly, for people I think will kind of outperform is Brandon nimmo. And maybe I'm just low on the nimmo contract. I've hired in the crowd and I'm higher than most people I've seen, but he's an above average defensive center Fielder with a career on base percentage that is just absolutely outrageous. He's 30. He's not super old. He just had a 5 four season and it didn't look flukey, right? Like he ran up three 17 babbit if it wasn't anything outrageous. He's just really, really good, and he's really good in a way that looks sustainable. He has enough power that you can't just try to throw things by him. He doesn't swing and miss a lot. He takes a ton of walks and sprints to first base afterwards. He's not like a an albatross on the bases. There's just a lot to like there. And it's hard to get players like that who can play a credible center field

"So I was enthralled and just to give you some background, I went to like my small local theater. This is a theater that is like going to have both tar and one piece red, which is an anime movie. I don't get their programming. But it was filled with pre teens. And the preteen boys were having a blast. Their parents not so much, but I was just like, why is this theater so packed? I've never seen a theater like this pack before. So I was just like, oh yeah, maybe The Rock gets its demo. Maybe The Rock is just like, let's do a lot of slow motion shots and me beating up hawkman for two hours because I'm speaking to my audience. So that is my answer. That is the most generous reading of meeting a movie where it is that I've ever heard in my entire life. I do want to look like, is this real rock bullshit though? Because in a way, he's kind of cultivated this image as America's ripped dad. And he's clearly trying to do something different, but he can't quite get out of his own shadow sometimes. Yeah, I feel like he's trying to do Don Draper if he had superpowers. You know, sort of like withering and kind of mean, but also so obviously better than everyone. You kind of have to accept his greatness and I think an
Impact Theory with Tom Bilyeu
"don draper" Discussed on Impact Theory with Tom Bilyeu
"A writer and the only reason that I stepped in front of the camera was one I wanted to impact people's lives, positively obviously. And then two, I want to build the next Disney. So I want to build a brand that is bigger than me. When we started, we were like, what do we call this thing? Everybody was like, Bill you studios all day long. The show should be called the Tom bili show, and I was like, fuck that. No one is going to tattoo Tom Billy on themselves. Other than my wife, who strangely wants to, and I absolutely refuse. But I knew that they could feel a sense of ownership over impact theory. So all of that to say, I can damage my own brand by saying things to not feel like a coward. So now I'm in this sort of doubly complex thing of I'm only in front of the camera to positively impact people's lives. The more that I can be almost transparent in that interaction and just give them something that they can own that will give them the ideas. They need the ideas. They don't need me. And so I'm like, God, like, am I just going to trip myself up by going up, but because I know that all of this is for nought, if I don't feel good about who I am, if I don't feel that I've contributed in a meaningful way, if I don't feel that I've done something honorable, is probably the word I would use with my life. And so that feeling. That's why, you know, one of the big questions I had reading your book is how much of this is just inescapable that we're all like if you fail to be courageous, you will suffer, no matter what the world thinks, they could all be like, maybe they you get celebrated for being the biggest here in the world. But inside you know it wasn't you, like the Don Draper effect, if you watch mad men where he like took a hero's identity and so people are constantly like, you know, thank you for your service and he knows that he was a total coward. And ah, just like that's so gnarly and I just can not. This is where that stoic idea of sometimes it's like, hey, are you speaking up about current events or it's like, hey, suddenly you've witnessed some calamity and you're the only person who can speak up about it. So there's a certain amount of randomness to it. They call this a moral luck. Were you of age born in this country when they were deciding who was going to land at Normandy? You and I were not. So that wasn't an opportunity for us to be courageous. And or were you there when the police were brutalizing someone and you had the courage to take out your camera and film it despite their threatening to arrest you if you continue? So there's a certain amount of luck. And if you want to call it luck in the kind of destiny that is chosen for us. But then there's also the sort of little moments of are you living up to what you believe in? Are you using the assets that you have to be the person that you know you want to be? And I think it is important, right? What good is success if you have to send to yourself, right? So you have the next Disney, but you knew you had to compromise on all the things that were important to you to get there. What good is your victory? Yeah. The Bible talks about the man who gained the whole world, but loses his soul. And I think that's sadly very common. And I think this is particularly common in politics in business in the creative fields where to make your way up through the system you have to show that you're not a threat. You have to show you're not a threat. Yeah, so okay, in the beginning of the pandemic, there was a captain, I forgetting his first name, but as captain Crozier, he's like the head of the USS Theodore Roosevelt. And it pulls into New York harbor. There's a COVID outbreak on the ship. And she doesn't feel like people are taking it seriously, that the people inside the navy are taking it seriously. And so he has a moral and he has a moral quandary. Do I continue to do I just follow my orders and let the people I'm entrusted with leading suffer as a result or do I take more desperate measures that will involve repercussions for me professionally and speak up about it and he speaks up about it. I think he sees a reporter. I forget the specifics, but he ends up basically losing his job as the jobs he wanted his whole life to be the captain of an aircraft carrier, and he loses his job over what he believed was the right thing. But I think it's important to zoom back and go, you don't like people like, oh, this is reckless, let's say or something. You don't become the captain of an aircraft carrier. If you're not a pretty good rule follower, right? Think of all the years he had to spend in the navy, following the rules, putting in his time, not being disruptive, not being like for the entrepreneurs have a different career trajectory than most almost any other profession, right? Where you're an outsider who starts their own thing. So from the beginning there was courage. But what about Tim Cook, right? People are like, Tim Cook's not as courageous and groundbreaking as Steve Jobs. Well, if he was, do you think you would have lasted very long at Apple? That doesn't work. So there's different career paths for different people, but the question is, when you find yourself in that situation, due to the courageous thing or the when it really matters, right? And I think the sad truth is a lot of times we don't.

"Money, it only matters to the people who are receiving it. Yeah, that's still a TBD in my mind. But yeah. I don't think it matters. The lifespan of the whole thing certainly is expanded beyond any reasonable comparison. But anyway, Mike WAN is going to have a press conference on Wednesday. He's going to have seen Phil Mickelson show up on Monday and say probably a whole lot of nothing. And he will Mike WAN will also be asked, what are you going to do in the future about this? Because you are one of the stakeholders and the PGA Tour clearly can only do so much. The majors matter, you're the first one to discuss it. What are you going to do? That's honestly more of an interesting presser to me this week than Phil Mickelson's. Interesting. I just want to see, I want to see the proxy wars here, Sean. We've got Jay and Greg sure, but they're never going to meet up. We're going to see Rory and Phil in the same locker room. We could see them in the same tea time. Who knows? Holy. There's no way. They put grace and Murray next to Kevin na in the locker room already. The USGA would not put Bryson with Brooks last year, even when they had an out because of the last three U.S. open champions. They had a chance to do it and they didn't do it. There's no way they would do that. Here's what's weird. Rory McIlroy went to Dustin Johnson's wedding. You know? Yeah? Now these dudes are on a very different side of a growing divide. And I know Justin Thomas got a lot of well deserved praise for what he said about how, you know, he's not writing off people because they took the money. He's not saying that they're bad dudes. Whatever. But at a certain point, this is going to change the dynamic a whole lot. And I guess a certain point is maybe right. DJ's DJ has made Rory's life a lot harder. In the temporary, Rory's Rory's not making DJs any harder. It's kind of a one way street where the friendship there has to change slightly because the work relationship changed greatly. Yeah. Well, I mean, I think in the dream scenario, and maybe this is how DJ is in all his relationships. You know, it's that Don Draper line from mad men where DJs don't even think about you. Think about you at all. Yeah. And that's the best case scenario. But there's got to be some twinge of jealousy when you see fans ringing the 18th green like they did for Rory. So I don't know if that changes anything in any meaningful way for the PGA Tour. It doesn't change the dollar values on the table for guys that are going to keep signing with Liv golf, but it sure did more for the PGA Tour's image than anything, including Jay monahan's appearance on the CBS broadcast, which I thought was okay, I guess, and didn't necessarily. What did Jay say?.

"It's wonderful that people are curious and it's wonderful that we're having these conversations and then I also feel pressure to get it right and to be able to articulate it and to be able to have a finite answer like a finish line answer where I just don't feel that way, you know? Like I feel I feel like I already am at the finish line and have been for a long time and I think that's confusing when we've just started the conversation. It's like we're kind of not quite there yet if that makes sense. No, absolutely and it makes sense also to want to have instructions and to want to have totally. I mean we have it all makes sense a 100% because you know we've been since the moment we're brought into this dimension. We are given instructions. Okay, great. You came out and you got to do this and you got to do that and these are the steps you got to make to function in society, but when you start realizing that all these systems and structures are really just to put you in a lane so you don't look to the side or within. When you start taking all those things away and start removing all these instructions, it's like, wait, where is the structure? And it's like the structure is that there is none. And then you're just like, it floating blob of love trying to figure it out. Also, I mean, I guess the thing is is like, yes, I feel like a floating blob of love. I also feel like a physical body. Like I like my body, you know? For maybe the first time in my life. I love that. I'm feeling like, because I think that's the other thing. It's like, then, in order to conceptualize this, it's like, don't even think of me as a but you know, it's all like it has to stay great, 'cause it's like, well, don't even think of me as a body, then that means I have to leave my body behind, which means I can't like my body. And I honestly, I do push ups every day so that I can flex and feel good about it. So are you gonna tell me I can't fucking take constant pictures of myself flexing in the bathroom mirror because no thank you. I'm not ready to give that up. I love this. I love this. Also, I don't know if it happened to you, but once I started to reclaim what femininity and masculinity were for me and just said F you to everything that was expected of me, that's when I started to really really be like, oh wow, yeah, I have, I have a gorgeous body. I have all these things that in the beginning I was very like, I don't want to show it off because it's like, oh, it's expected of this and now I'm just like, I don't know, like I love this vessel that I have because I'm reclaiming these features for me. I'm not trying to fit into what society wants. No, I want this for me and I'm like loving this for me. And then now I just feel sexy and sensual and masculine and feminine and all of the things that I want. I don't know if that resonates with you too. Oh, a 100%. I mean, and I've talked about this a little bit on the podcast, so I'm so sorry to listeners, but a couple months ago I posted this photo on Instagram where like, this is actually a big turning point for me to sort of in the general understanding of this. I posted this photograph where you could kind of see cleavage, like not very much, but a little bit. And I have like, I have big boobs. I have like a D size chest, which I have felt pretty weird about for a long time because like I remember one time I was at a pool party, which is a thing that you do when you live in Los Angeles and you're an adult, not something I ever did outside of childhood when I lived in Chicago. That makes sense. I was at a pool party and I was trying to tell one of my friends at the time, we were literally no longer Friends, but I was trying to tell one of my friends at the time, like, I feel like, I feel like Don Draper in a Joan body, and she said to me, she was like, I mean, I was in a bathing suit when I said this. And she said, oh, so you're like comparing yourself to the two hottest people on the planet, which was kind of a dick thing to say because what I was trying to do was convey that I know that you might have certain expectations of me based on the fact based on how I look in a bathing suit. I don't really wear sporty volleyball lesbian triangle bikini tops. I have to wear an underwire and like some support because boobs are huge. And that makes me feel weird because it's like it makes me feel weird because of you because you're around. So I was trying to confide like don't like, don't be confused. I'm still an ad executive that is a bad person. Anyway, I posted this picture on Instagram and some folks commented on the cleavage and started calling me mommy. What if which made me feel insane? Oh my God. Because I was like, oh my God, these are and it's also fine to be a mommy, but I don't really feel like a mommy. I think I said, I feel like a daddy. And then people were saying, actually, just FYI, you're a mommy. And I wanted to punch myself in the face. I deleted it..

There was a random owl that doesn't play into it doesn't play into the rest of the commercial at all. Well, that's what man, which meat is. Horrifying. Wow. And then a witch, at the end of the commercial, there is a woman who's says that basically says she's a witch. Man, man, witch. It's which. It's a pun off of which, I get it now. Yeah, but this fucking bizarre, this is some hippy dippy 70s bullshit wags.

Well, she's closer, but you both overshot it again, 1970 on the dot. Damn. Started the decade. I was gonna say 69, then I was like, did they even have commercials then? I don't even know. Don Draper wrote this commercial. Oh yeah. The man with commercial. And then you know, and then you know he played it with the witch lady in the commercial. They played it just to kind of get extra bonus pay. So this commercial aired during the Nixon administration. How odd does that feel? It's crazy. Tricky dick was our president.

"Marketing? They're constant need for consolidation. I think there is the what's happened for decades, if not a hundred years that's been going on in the agency space. And then I think there's what is happening more now. So what I think believe has happened from before my time is agencies were gobbled up for scale and size because back in the Don Draper errors, that's what really won, but you're able to go and say, we have the biggest creative department. We buy the most TV, which gives us the greatest buying power. And frankly, there's a lot of big companies that that's still what they do. They just buy for scale. But really what's happening now and what our focus has been has been buying and putting together companies for scope and really why we're doing that is because of the CMOs needs. The CMO today, their needs are very different than they were 20, 30 years ago when the marketing universe was small. You had print and you had TV. And you had a few other mediums. Well, look at today. You got Justin our world in the intro, you named 12 things that we do, but all those things are around performance marketing. But there still is, you have performance marketing. That's how you grow, but you have an agency or somebody to help you with your Shopify site or your ecommerce store and have somebody to help you with the web design. There's so many different aspects. So I think why it was done in the past was scale, but what we're focused on is really being able to help CMOs grow their business and bring all those things that help grow together into one area for them to kind of streamline it and also bring efficiencies too. So when marketers are looking for an agency, I think that there's two schools of thought. I want a small agency that's going to pay close attention to me, be very hands on. I'm going to work with the founders. I'm going to get sort of the elite level talent within the agency to focus on my account because there is no one else that's there. Or I'm going to go to a large agency that has all of the resources. I'm going to get a dedicated account manager that's going to do the legwork, but also the strategy from the higher ups and that could help me across multiple verticals as I expand. Obviously, you've gone down sort of the second road, but help me understand the balance between working with big agencies and small agencies. You have an interesting pendulum that swings, right? Of when to use the specialty shops versus when things are all in. When we first started 5 being kind of a true specialty shop, sometimes we would get customers who would come to us and they wanted the specialty. And sometimes they would actually end up going to somebody else as a smaller business who did everything. So let's look at it from the life cycle of the client's business. I think that's the important side. So you have a small business. It doesn't really have a marketing team. Whether they are a fast D to C with huge VC behind them or any VC by them or they're just an entrepreneur run business, typically at the beginning, they're either stitching together as somebody who can do it all through a consultant or they're looking for a small shop that does it all. What ends up happening then is these companies take on this BC dollars and they hire their first marketers. And then those first marketers typically look for the experts in each one of those categories. And then you kind of get to where the company grows up late stage or becomes much bigger. And then their marketing programs are just so sophisticated and complex that they can't hire enough staff in order to do that and how so then they end up kind of swinging back to somebody who can do it all. So it's kind of the beginning when you're small, it varies. I've seen people want the all in and people want especially. Then you get to the middle stage where they want the experts because they built their marketing team and that's how they're growing. They have their growth marketers. But then they get to the bigger stages and it becomes too much to manage when you have this large enterprise to manage so many different firms. So talk to me about the rationale for agencies want to consolidate and build their business through acquisition. I understand that pretend the idea is that you are basically bringing in different verticals to offer services. You're basically aggregating boutique agency offerings. For other brands, you mentioned that they're trying to build scale, but what is the outcome? Are you building an agency, not new specifically, but for agencies who are starting to go through scale is the goal to grow bigger to get acquired by an even bigger agency or is it that you spin off enough capital to go public? I don't really understand with agencies what the endgame is as opposed to you look at D to C brands. There's a big public market for that. There's private equity firms that buy them. Talk to me about the outcome is for agencies that start to go through this acquisition phase for growth. Yeah, I mean, there's three outcomes. They're pretty similar to what you just said. So you have agencies that will get gobbled up by the biggest strategic that are out there. That happens a lot. You have agencies like elite SEM. We were private independent now to know from 2004 when we created to 2017 when we became a platform company for a private equity firm where now with a second private equity firm. And then the third is that you can go public, which agencies have and most of them are part of these big holding companies, but more and more you're going to see tech enabled agencies like ourselves with that as an option. It maybe wasn't as an option before unless you're one of these big conglomerates, but those are typically the three ways that you grow. So founders have to make that choice. They want to be part of something that's a behemoth. Do they want to be, which is what we chose is that we want to challenge the norm. We're not going to go get gobbled up by somebody. We're going to put together some really smart people and build something to challenge the Giants. There's two questions that I want to ask you. You could pick whichever one you wanted, but it's basically what's the impact of agency consolidation for the people that work at the agencies and for the people that work with the agencies. So let's start with the people that work for the agencies. I'm going to boutique agency and this is just kind of how agency life works. Somebody comes along and gobbles up the agency that I'm working for. What should I expect? Am I going to be laid off? Am I going to be put together with a big group? Is everything going to stay the same as it always ever was? What happens to people working for an agency when we go through this consolidation phase? Not really speak for us. We're a growing business that's growing 30 some plus percent organically every year. And every company that we've ever bought is growing organically. So for us, we've never done a layoff or anything in any of the 5 acquisitions that we've done. We're all working on clients. We're all working on things and it's a growth story. What I try to tell the companies that we've acquired is look at our culture, look at our history, like that's part of it. And what we're trying to champion is two things. Our employee experience and our client experience with every acquisition that we do. So in the employee experience that I look at people and say, hey, look, you work for a specialty shop, which is great. And guess what? You have a career path that you can keep charging towards. In that specialty because we're buying that specialty for a reason. But now you're also part of a bigger company that if your choice of your career path is that you want to diversify your experience, but we have a programs internally that allow internal transfers for people to move and learn other capabilities, including what we call client strategy, which are people that sit at the middle of the client experience. So when we work with a client across all these things to help the client navigate all of those and that's kind of the segue to the second reason why we do these acquisitions is there is synergies between these channels. So paid search. Let's think about paid search and it's yes, it's keywords. Well, if you think about the keywords and what people are raising their hand for for wanting that product, well now we can take the learnings from paid surge and look over at whether it's email or look at some of the addressable things and say, all right, well, people are searching for these different types of things, and this is what their demographics are. We can bring that over to addressable and vice versa and bring that over. So we can learn from these different channels in order to help our clients grow more. So that's kind of the advantage to the client is that instead of multiple people or companies trying to speak to each other about results and what's going on, it's one team with one leader and.

"And then as a dad now, you're not, you're not Don Draper. You got to show up for all this stuff. And it's like two o'clock on a Tuesday. I'm self employed. So I have flexibility over my schedule, but what about the guy who does go to an office every day and is expected to work from? I mean, how are you feeling when you look, I can't leave my job yet? Yeah. The guy who can't go to any of that. I mean, that's why Don Draper became Don Draper because he started getting those emails, and he just was like, I'm going to go the other way. He created this hero expectations that he will ever show for anything. He literally left his daughter's birth 6% also. I know amazing human beings who were raised by fathers like that. We get that we get the emails, bloomies and preschool, but I think we probably get three to 5 a day from preschool now. They're not informational. It's just him doing finger paintings. It's super cute. But I get it. At some point. Yeah, it's going that way. I just think I also think there's room for for every Instagram dad that's doing like some really cute dance moment thing, which is good. I think that exposes a good role. It's good to see it's good modeling. I also think it's okay to admit some of the mess ups, you know. You said something about skateboarding. We moved to Minneapolis. I put my kid in a helmet, and I missed the boardwalk in California, so I put him on the front of a skateboard. Something I've never done before. He was one and a half years old. Right. And we went out and it was like, I mean, we definitely in the same moment went off a crack in the sidewalk and just both went down really, really hard. And he used the shit out of our helmets, right? Kids fine, I was fine, no crying, and I looked over in a neighbor saw me and she goes, she was very nice. She goes, are you guys okay? I was like, yeah, and the kid actually fine. And I just remember being like, that looked outrageously terrible. And I think there's something that okay about admitting mistakes and fuck ups because there was a good intention behind it. Maybe I was trying to adventure more than I was ready for. But it's like, that can be funny. That can be daddy. And I think that don't tell mom. And don't tell mom, that vibe, right? We tried something. I screwed up. We're gonna keep a secret. Yeah, yeah. That's a good practice. It is a model. There's a crack in your helmet. We're shopping. We're going shopping for a new helmet. But mom will find out. Yeah. There was no concussion. I think. But anyway, the idea of trading notes on things that didn't work and things that did work. No one's really getting an a plus on this thing. We're just kind of stumbling through it. And you know what? I'm gonna end this by a shout out to the moms because I know, I mean, obviously, I don't know Goldie, but obviously we know Julie's incredible wisdom and intuition and abilities. And leadership qualities have been really helpful and April. Listen, man, the reason I can be kind of more chill in my role is because. 5% of the work is being taken off my plate. So and brogan is here in Los Angeles. Well, Goldie is at home right now. I'm here with a newborn and I'm at the table. Well, I told you this. That woman. You're like, I'm gonna go to hey babe. I know I got like a brand new newborn, but he roll on his calling and I gotta break bread with school next. Yeah. Like and I have to like squash the beef, plus there's these ads I gotta read, it makes no sense. And I told you this, I told you this because we face time with Adam skull next, so she's a new fan of his, but she's a fan of yours and she pressed go on the idea because she does. She spent a lot of time with you guys on walks, getting ready to deliver this baby and so it's cool. So shout out to all the moms. The big daddy space possible to make any margins possible. And at the same time, you know? Keep telling positive dad stories, man. Yeah. I think if there's another little kernel in there, it's that it's important to make sure that within the very limited spectrum of time that you have that you do carve out a little bit of time to nourish yourself in whatever that is. So for you right now, it's this dramatic sort of stroke of coming out here, but on some level, like you're being nourished by this experience. This is very broken for you to be here. Goldie knows, like, oh, I need to let broken do this because when he comes back, he'll be a better and more present dad. That's an extreme example of something I think you could practice on the daily, whether it's Adam, you getting the opportunity to go jump in the ocean a couple of times a week or whatever it is. You've got to be able to hold on to that and not become completely consumed by the experience because if you do, then you'll start to get resentful and that compounded by the fatigue and the sleep deprivation and all of that is going to get expressed in unhealthy way. Fitness is key. You know, you can not let go of the fitness strand in my opinion. For me, it's been very key because being, again, I keep saying this, but it is true. An older dad. And so, like, I'm looking, I'm looking at chasing down this kid who comes with mothers very athletic and I need to be able to be present. So I look at it as part of my job as a dad to stay fit. I think it's true. And it also helps you process the stress and all the sleeplessness and all the other kind of nasty thoughts that want to creep into your head. So as we all know, being people who care about exercise and love doing it, just because it's fun. That was also as we know a very important byproduct. So I think yes, the first month, take your time, whatever, but find it. You gotta find the margin for that. And make sure that you're providing that opportunity for your partner. So we were joking broken as your birthday next week. You're like, well, yeah, it's canceled because you're here, right? So what are you going to do, go back and so I said, what you should do, what you should ask for for your birthday is the opportunity to provide Goldie with like a spa day. You know? I mean, this is like, oh, what are the dads need? It's like, well, you know, any woman whose mom is listening to this is gonna be like, are you fucking kidding? She's already flipped us off 6 times. No, for sure..
Dual Threat with Ryen Russillo
"don draper" Discussed on Dual Threat with Ryen Russillo
"Find somebody who's down to hang out with a guy that actually has a family. Where it's not a Don Draper situation, unless you look like I'm gonna be fine. So there's, yeah, you get some stuff, but I would try to figure out the first part of this first. Any thoughts Kyle? Not too many, not too many thoughts. I will say I am a child to divorce so it's not the 50s anymore, dude, you can get divorced if things aren't working out and they're like, obviously, you're writing a podcast about it. You're definitely thinking about it, which means you're probably thinking about it every day, which means it probably makes your day pretty shitty. And I think that's one of the grounds for divorce is when all of your days are shitty. But yeah, it's not the 50s anymore. You could totally do that. And I guess I just kind of have more of a question. I would hope you'd accept to follow up here. He said that she's basically asexual, so I did a little Google search wound up on WebMD. So asexuality is actually kind of a muddy water situation. It seems like you can say the word and it's it could be a sexual orientation or it could just be the absence of sexual feeling. So it's just like, I guess I'm wondering because the first thing I was going to say is did you have a conversation about it? It sounds like he did, where he was just like, listen, this is somebody that bothers me. I've noticed we're not having sex. So that hard awkward part is out of the way. So he did that. I guess is it something where it's just not going to happen right now? Like updated somebody who's like, had like a tough sexual password. It's like sex. Sex was like a bargaining chip or whatever. They just have weird feelings about sex, but it sounds like this is like simpler as like I just don't have any sexual attraction to you. So have you actually come to the conclusion that this is just never going to happen for you and maybe not that she would be into taking some sort of pills or chemical reaction things. But have you already come to the conclusion where it's just like, this is how I feel. Not like, yeah, I don't know why I haven't been feeling it lately. Have you really done the hard conversations if you're talking? I guess they must have if they're talking about maybe going on dates and stuff. I guess, yeah, this is fucking tough. It feels like all of this is, you're right, wow, wait, Kyle. You just dropped the divorce bomb on us all? What? Because it's like it seems like that's one of those classic things like, yeah, so if she doesn't have any sexual attraction to her, it doesn't mean she doesn't care if you're spending your time with someone else and like enjoying like inside jokes with someone else and I don't know, like you're still like, it's gonna be really hard to balance that coming home to then with kids and then also you have to spend time with her because you still like her as a person. You just can never get to the sexual thing that you guys both used to have. So it's like, I don't know. It seems like one of those things where she's gonna say, yeah, it's fine. And then it's not gonna be fine. And then your life's gonna suck for other reasons too. So I don't know. I think sex is a big part of a marriage. I think you should get divorced. Kyle, just not mincing words. I'm not ready to offer up any more on this because I think there's a large part of the audience. It's like you two idiots should shut up about this. We never talk about any of this stuff, but that's part of the segment. I mean, and honestly, it's not like this guy is like a lot of people who's like, yeah, I've been thinking about this a lot. Like he's had the tough conversations. He knows what she feels about. He's not like, I'm wondering what she's going to say about this. She told him the stuff that you'd never expect to be told. Which means they must have been at least a couple conversations in. So like he's done. But this stuff happens. You know, you're right, you're totally right, but I just think it's always important to remind yourself that, you know what, there are all sorts of relationships that have all these we're all hear about a divorce. I'm like, what? And then a buddy will tell me about something else. I'm like, what's going on? And you're always kind of like, I can't believe that's crazy. And then you start to realize that it's crazy when it isn't crazy, right? The crazy ones. I was like, no, I'm totally totally neutral. Everything I'm just, you know, very content, just a nice, easy, slow, stroll through the park for the next 30, 40 years. Kids are good, and get a good schools. You know, no college loans. You know, and you're like, oh, so that normalcy is actually the most odd, the odd thing of all these different relationships. But I would just emphasize one more time. Don't feel bad about you wanting to feel better about your situation, whatever that solution is. Reminder check out the Bill Simmons in-house and my self and be a preview podcast two parter all 30 teams over unders our finals picks awards picks as well. That's in the Bill.
Impact Theory with Tom Bilyeu
"don draper" Discussed on Impact Theory with Tom Bilyeu
"But I knew that they could feel a sense of ownership over impact theory. So all of that to say, I can damage my own brand. Sure. By saying things to not feel like a coward. So now I'm in this like sort of doubly complex thing of I'm only in front of the camera to positively impact people's lives. The more that I can be almost transparent in that interaction and just give them something that they can own that will give them the ideas they need the ideas. They don't need me. And so I'm like, God, like, am I just going to trip myself up by going up but because I know that all of this is for not, if I don't feel good about who I am, if I don't feel that I've contributed in a meaningful way, if I don't feel that I've done something honorable is probably the word I would use with my life. And so that feeling. That's why, you know, one of the big questions I read in your book is how much of this is just inescapable that we're all like if you fail to be courageous, you will suffer, no matter what the world thinks, they could all be like, maybe they you get celebrated for being the biggest here in the world. But inside you know it wasn't you like the Don Draper effect if you watch mad men where he took a hero's identity and so people are constantly like, you know, thank you for your service, and he knows that he was a total coward. And just like, that's so gnarly, and I just can not. When this is, this is where that stoke idea of sometimes it's like, hey, are you speaking up about current events or it's like, hey, suddenly you've witnessed some calamity and you're the only person who can speak up about it. So there's a certain amount of randomness to it, they call this moral luck..

"A long time to It's just a lot harder to hide. I i would ask anybody this. That's like even asking themselves questions that released the emailer. If you think it is kind of running your day then you know maybe it'll a win yourself off a little bit. You is getting in the way of your work then. That's a problem if you don't think it's getting in the way we work. I'm sure this is. You're stoned all timeless newest. Hey i do this. I worked with computers. I'm at home all the time. I more efficient. It doesn't matter. I'm not telling you wrong. I'm not telling you you're wrong but it's up to every person to decide if you've been asking these questions it's like that episode of madman don. Draper says he goes the minute you have to ask. If you have a drinking problem you have a drinking problem right. And so i think if this is something where you are like on. Hey i didn't do this. I didn't come through with this sort of blew this off on and on and on and you're twenty seven then you know whatever but these are these. Are you kind of have to go through some shit. But i don't even know what guys saying. I you know i don't i don't know that it's it's dire. I think he's just sort of in the middle here. But if he wants to be seth rogan. He just needs to get higher chocolate. I i think seth rogan's funny not because he smokes weed. And if you think that's why it's funny then you're probably wrong. This guy struck a nerve right there. No i mean. I listened to it like a lot of comedians podcasting and not a lot of them. But there's a couple that i listened to and they're just like You know like yeah had coke problem. But i wouldn't go on stage coke because like comedy was important to me and like it threw me off but like you should like if you're funny. It sounds like you're funny like you should focus on being funny without Added things in there. So if like if you're you aren't sometimes how it's but some have an essential question about whether or not it's it's going to help me do better. It's probably not. You should focus on being better like regularly. The other thing don draper could ask themselves like if you're chicken brown water at nine. Am at work. That might be more of an issue. Yeah never asked that question. I just saw the episode. Don draper goes they they win. The cleo remember they get hammered because they don't think they have to meet people from life cereal than people from lifestyle. Cereal show up get hammered at the commercial awards advertisement awards. Then they have to go back to the office. He pitches life. Cereal should face. That was the other kids tagline cure for the common everything and then he goes out again with roger joan. He goes home with the brunette and then he wakes up to bats calling him saying you're two hours late you haven't picked up the kids and he's like whatever it saturday she's like it's sunday rolls over and it's the waitress from a diner. He missed a day and went to bed on a friday. Woke up on a sunday with a different person than he went to bed with on friday and missed in entire day. That is a lot.

They might actually have to change how they function on. tv shows. You had this really interesting i think. Important point about how the anti hero character that we have seen all over television for the last two decades particularly characters like you know madman's don draper and sopranos tony soprano and all of these breaking bad dudes.

BrainStuff Classics: Does 'Power Dressing' Actually Work?
"Brain stuff learn bomb here with a classic episode from our archives and from former host Christian savior this. This one was inspired by a book. Christian ran across about how to dress for success. It got him wondering can power dressing really make a difference socially or psychologically below their brain stuff. I'm Christian Sager and I've got a question for you. Do I look powerful. Well I I know you can't see me right now but I feel powerful. Some people even think that what you wear can produce this kind of confidence and who doesn't want to feel good about themselves. So what is this power dressing? And does it actually work well to answer that question? We have to take a trip to the smooth nineteen seventies when a guy named John Malloy came out with a series of books about dressing for success. He prescribed a uniform of sorts for both men and women. That would help them. Achieve Greatness in business professions for men Malloy recommended conservative business attire. That was high quality and fit well essentially a business suit in dark hue with a modest white shirt and a tie. Think Don Draper for women. He adapted this uniform. To include a skirted suit and a soft blouse with floppy or bowed. Neck pieces think Margaret Thatcher in order to achieve the kind of authority of the Iron Lady Malloy recommended. Women do two things. Don't look like a secretary and don't look too sexy. You couldn't wear waistcoats or contour jackets. Because they drew attention to the bust. Scarves were popular because they drew attention to the face and away from the breasts and floral prints and feminine colors like Salmon. Pink were out. But you didn't want to look to masculine either. Hence the skirt instead of trousers. This was the birth of power dressing and by the nineteen eighties. It became the way enterprising. Women learned to manage or limit the potential sexuality of their bodies and leave all that gross girl stuff like cooties at home but as they entered the corporate workforce in ever greater numbers. Some women wanted to modify this uniform while maintaining their professional appearance. One alternative model for breaking out of these fashion limitations was Princess Diana with her more glamorous outfits others were on TV and shows like dynasty designing women and Moonlighting enter broad shoulder pads wide lapels and a wider range of textures colors and accessories. Cut to the present day now. Most of these fashion fads have come and gone but you can still see their influence on politicians. For Example Take Hillary Clinton or Donald trump many of the tenets of power dressing are still employed. Today we just don't call it that anymore. But a twenty fifteen study reexamined the principles behind power dressing. It found that putting on formal clothing does indeed make us feel powerful and even makes us think differently. The authors of this study tested student participants in a series of experiments by rating their outfits and taking cognitive tests when the students switched out of sweat pants and into the kind of clothing. They thought they should wear to a job interview. The tests showed their cognitive processing became more abstract broader and holistic the authors. Also say that how often you actually wear. Formal clothes doesn't matter regardless of when you wear. These uniforms have become a symbol of power. There have been other studies into how clothing affects our cognition to for instance. When people wear white doctors coats

How Ad Exec Nancy Reyes Became Undeniable
"I was going to ask you if this was the office. Where you do don draper style presentations or really just in an office office. There's no don draper in here. It struck me as I was walking over here from thirty rock where I work both how near we are Long Island City and how far you've come from where you grew up. Your Dad drove a taxi. Your mom worked as a housekeeper. What did you learn from them about work? Work Ethic work hard all the time and then you see the rewards of that hard work on the hours of a taxi driver. Are you know whenever there's demand and I remember my mom would never say no to cleaning a house so there was some days where she would clean three houses in the same day. Three to four houses in the same day which is just an enormous amount of cleaning. I did learn that everything feels better when you earn it that that is to me the the the best immigrant lesson and that has carried me my entire life is. I want to know that I earned it and if I put the hard work in then I can say this is mine. If heard you say that you retrospectively realize you never had the time or space to think about what you wanted to be when you grew up. What were you thinking about instead? Food money will we have food today? how much money do we have? How many more bottles doing to collect to be able to buy groceries? How many more grocery bags can I on my on my arms to carry them home because we didn't have money for a taxi? It was always short term stuff very very short term stuff and I suppose there was some benefit in that in that I felt like I was always solving a problem. That's a that's a skill. That's a skill always. There was always something to overcome and there was always a solution to that but yeah I do feel badly that I didn't. I don't remember times when I said when I grow up. I WANNA be an astronaut or I want to be a lawyer. I WANNA be a doctor. It was. How do I get to tomorrow when you look back? Were there signs that you would be a natural what you do now. No I don't know I hopeful. I don't think so. I think the one thing I knew I would be good at and I feel slightly guilty about it. Now is being incredibly articulate? I remember growing up and I grew up in a time where assimilation was valued which is very different than the time we are. Now where bringing your whole self whatever that is the most important thing so assimilation was about. How do you blend into everybody else in to do that? I DIDN'T WANNA speak Spanish. I didn't want to have an accent. Not a Hispanic accent. Not a long island city accent. Not a New York accent. It was like how articulate. Can I be so? I knew that whatever it was that I was GONNA do. I was going to be really good at speaking. Really good at presenting. Did that message. Come from your parents or from somewhere else. It didn't come from my parents because I remember hurting my mom's feelings a number of times when I said speak English. This is America. I must have picked that up from somewhere. I mean I think I was five. I remember where I was when I said that to her for the first time she was barking orders at me to do something probably my chores. Nothing nothing harmful and I just had had it Not necessarily with the chores just with I imagined with this. Why do I speak Spanish here but speak English someplace else? Why do I not know enough English? This is America. Get Your Act together. I had that kind of In patients with it which I of course feel terrible about it now but I was five different time where your parents from my mother is from El Salvador and my father was Puerto Rican. Study the Puerto Rican seems to take over your narrative in the little that I could find online. That's probably a New York thing fifth grade you struggling to prep. Which is this program that prepares kids from communities like yours that they will be leveled up academically with other kids. There must have been someone who said this very smart. Do you remember who that person was the principal? I remember a principal. His name was Philip. As emo I remember thinking his name was so grand. You Know Phillip as Emily and I remember. I was putting away books in our library. I say that with air quotes. It was like a shelf tiny shelf of Tattered books and he came over to me and he said I hear you're very smart and I think that carried me for ages six. Somebody noticed. Somebody saw that scrape the way someone like that can change. A Kid's life was one sentence I remember obsessing over that sentence and every single word in that sentence and so if you heard it it meant somebody else said it. So somebody else thought. I WAS SMART. So people were noticing. Somebody noticed. Somebody talked about it. Were you hearing that no no? I can't quite remember hearing any of that stuff at home. I I remember that I started in kindergarten. I didn't go to preschool. That was just not a notion for our family or even our community and somehow I I could understand. I spoke English but my parents both spoke only Spanish and I asked my mom at some point. How did I go to kindergarten? If I didn't speak English. And she said well we used to put you in front of the television to watch sesame street so I remember thinking my God. I must have learned all that. I know this language watching. Tv and watching Sesame Street. I think that was far as I could remember. Conversations about education or intelligence home was about working. It was about chores. We are coming up on a very special anniversary. Our one hundredth episode. And so we WANNA hear from you send us a voice memo to Ola at Latina to Latina Dot com telling us what the podcast has meant to you. When you've kept going a time you've persevered. We want to hear it all so then for high school through prep for prep. You end up going to a prep school in the upper west side culture shock. What specifically do you remember? What stood out to you? So many things stood out none of them commuted or they took the cross town bus and I thought my gosh what a privileged to take across town bus. I thought that must be a rich person thing. They went skiing lots of ski trips. They all had country houses. What is a country house and they all went every weekend to a country house or they went to the Hamptons. Every time there was a break from school there was a vacation. It's one of the complicated things about making these leaps which is even when you have the programs like prep for prep that are making the academic differential and the resource differential in many cases. There still is an emotional and cultural thing. That's already happening in your teens. Right like even if you don't have the upheaval of moving between worlds those years our heart and they are harder when you're also trying to understand things like why some people have those things in some people don't and who you are in a world in which you are from the get position does outsider. It's so true I think the Times I think about it now. I feel like they're two sides to it. That were not addressed that if programs like this are going to continue and they are very successful. I've said many times I oh my entire life to prep. I really do think it saved my life but if we're really GONNA see long-term growth in an impact from programs like that two sides to address. One is the sociological impact for the person of color entering those private schools. What should I expect? How do I answer questions about? Do you have a country house do you. Do you ski every weekend. It seems simple to say. I don't have that on. I don't ski. I would skip. But that's not what you say when you're thirteen or fourteen When I remember feeling I don't look like anybody here so I felt ugly. I don't have anything that these people have so I felt not worth it and I felt that in many occasions I was probably robbing a spot of somebody else that they didn't better than I did. But then the other side of that is who told those kids about me. Who told them I was coming told them why I deserved to be there. Who told them that? I had earned it and that conversation was never had those guys so as much as maybe in my teens. I felt like I didn't like anybody there. I didn't like the school. Now I know will why would they? Why would they treated me any differently? They didn't know no one spoke to them about it.
Top 10 Performers of the 2010s
"Actually I am kind of I write poetry Snow Book Secret Notebook or your poet. Yeah that's great but you like to hear what sure sure it doesn't really Ryan though. Okay kind of like him better when they don't me to all right so we've heard your number ten. We've heard my number six Adam driver. Who's your number nine performer? The decade? Okay boy this hurts me because it wasn't too long ago I was asking if this was the best actress of the twenty tens and I still think she's in the conversation but Elizabeth Moss. When I sat down to do this list fell down to number nine okay and I think for me. It's it's partly again. I'm backing into the list here. It's partly because her strongest work was on television. I don't know if it's fair. We're a film show so I'M GONNA hold that. It's not fair okay. It probably isn't yet to discount the handmaiden and madman but you're right if you include those. Then how is she? Not One of the performance of the Dick and Jane campion's crime series top of the lake. Yeah so so you know those three works alone in her work in them specifically I mean madman. I made the argument. She's as crucial to that series. Almost as crucial. Let's say Don Draper. She was the lead in in Top of the lake in the lead the handmaid's tale but I look back at the big screen to and The one I love I think great in. I know you love the film more than Me Adam but the collaboration with Alex. Ross Perry's Ben. My favorite thing about those including are probably hurt toured force performance of the last. Ten years is in her smile. I think just from last year and then yeah squeezing in that great supporting part in US last year as well getting to show her comic chops I had to keep her on this list but when I started comparing her to the filmography we're going to get to higher up. Yeah I couldn't put up there at the very top. Yes same process with me. Though she slipped a little further I did begin by ranking top ten actresses top ten actors then figured out how to merge them and go made the cut. I Have Elizabeth Moss in my six through ten actresses but did not make my top ten overall. My number ten is an actress. And this is one where you could accuse me Josh of maybe looking ahead a little too much but I think the foundation of great work in this decade is also there. She is the only other one that woman I'm about to mention. She's the only other one with driver who feels to me like locks. We could already pencil them in for when we're doing this list in ten years okay. We're GONNA look back on the twenty twenties and go. Of course. This was the decade of Adam driver and of Sir Sha Ronin the three great performances come in Brooklyn in Lady Bird and of course last year in Greta. Gerwig 's little women and there's two great films there for me all time great films frankly in Lady Bird and little women. I'm less high on Brooklyn though I like Brooklyn quite a bit and I really do think. It's a wonderful performance from her. She also appears of course in Wes. Anderson's Grand Budapest hotel and I really liked her in Joe. Wright's Hannah for me. Ronin is the insistent innocent. There is some naievety about her. As you look at those performances Brooklyn ladybird little women but really just a lack of experience. There's the census. She still has a lot to learn about herself and about the world and relationships. She's going to make mistakes. She's GonNa make a fool of herself but that's because she's always going to put herself on the line there is a determination and there's a voracious nece to Ronin characters that I find really appealing. I was looking back at my notes from our review of Lady Bird and I mentioned the way she just kind of burns with this intensity and this focus. It's almost like she's from another planet in the way she talks and the way she studying the people she's engaging with there is this provocation that is inherent to the lady bird character where she's just so eager to expand her knowledge her base of knowledge. It seems like that's what she's after in every encounter in life and maybe more than anything. Josh the reason why I wanted to make sure I fit. Ronin on this list is I just want to continue to put out into the universe. This idea that I did see floating around social media after a recent Hollywood reporter with Ronin and Greta Gerwig where they talk about future collaborations with each other. And there's a great question by the interviewer posed to Gerwig about working with Ronan and differences in working with her now versus lady bird and I thought Gerg's answer was really instructive. She says it's the benefit of working with someone you've worked with before. I felt like in some ways I had conceived lady bird before I knew she was playing it and I'd written drafts of little women before I knew she was playing it but I don't know any other way to say it. Except she was an author of Lady Bird but even more so she was an author of little women. I felt like she knew exactly what we were making the whole time as a filmmaker as much as an actor she really became a second director for me. It was like an extension of every thought. I had she'd walk out in another step. I think honestly the closest I've had to it is writing. With Noah Noah Baumbach who is her partner. But that's fitting of. Gerwig I think in her personality that she so generous in giving Ronin all that credit as an artistic collaborator but I think it speaks to the intelligence and again that voracious nece that comes through in her character's it's probably embedded within ronin herself. That made her such a good collaborator with Gerwig. And the key line from this is Gerwig saying I'm interested to see what movie we make when searches in her fifties. And I'm in my sixties. WoN'T THAT BE INTERESTING? And I'm thinking that's great but I want to see the movie that you make together when searches in her thirties when searches in her forties. I can't wait until the fifties I would be perfectly content of those to just continue to make movies together until the end of time. So Sir Sharon did just sneak onto my list ten. Hey I like your band with Jona rubies. Len Fans knew awesome.

I'm super excited to share all about my book. The millennial whisper are which has it published about eight weeks ago. Maybe a little bit more. We've sold about thirty five thousand copies and i feel like it's just now starting to really take off and you know one of the main drivers behind the book itself was what i call my passion disorder and it was about four years ago. Oh that was sitting next to my brother and i was passionately talking about something and he turns to me and he goes chris. Has anyone ever told you you have a passion disorder order and i turned back door <unk>. Is that a good thing or a bad thing. He said it's a good thing you gotta embrace that and as you look at kind of all of our passions evolve with life and why i wrote this book is around my newfound passion which hit me about two and a half years ago which is idea eddie of how do we bring more empathy and connection into our worlds and why not start with organizations in which we end up spending nine hours a day day the other thing that i encourage to anyone that i work with as i say life needs to be a ruthless pursuit of passions and i think one of the things that you'll find with my book. The millennial whisper is it really is around. How can we as leaders better bring this next generation along but also allow them to tap into their passions now the book itself <hes> it's been great because we are bestseller and we'll be in every single airport in june and it's just now starting to take off. It's been translated into spanish and portuguese and other languages but you know the main thing around and the book itself of what i wanna make sure comes through is i want to change the workplace with this book and the one of the key metrics that i changed within myself which i'm very upfront with all my people about is growing up in that agency i played all the different roles and i was about three years ago kind of the don draper flying all over the globe wining and dining and and on the outside i looked great but on the inside i was struggling because i had lost sight of what where my roots were and <hes> so you know my book actually starts with how i change one key metric for myself and that was my metric of success and and i went from changing that metric my success metric used to be beating my brothers the game of life and it evolved to very much much evolve to how can i have the most impact on others in a day and to judge on a daily basis versus a quarterly or yearly basis and so that's how i started the book and if you actually break it down there eight key chapters that really walk through the elements of <hes> <hes>. How can we be better leaders for this next generation and you can see on the cover here all of the negatives that i feel like that they've been served left. It's been a massive disservice to this generation and you know if you actually go into google you can see that auto populated you put an millennials are and you quickly see all of these negatives and it was funny so when i first started talking about this idea of the book it was an executive retreat in north georgia with the average about fifty five years old. You're sitting around the fire air and i introduced myself. I said you know i don't know what i'd do. I used to be kind of head of business development. I was the social media guy and now i'm more of the servant leader you're with a group of thirty millennials beneath me that i'm leading and coaching and i've kind of turned into the millennial whisper and i went on and shared shared my story and sat down at the fire and tommy breedlove who is leading. This whole trip turned to me egos. You'd better write that book like what book he goes. The millennia whisper and i said all right well i'm very a._d._d. I don't know how to write a book. Here's like let me let me help you with a few resources sources etc and that was about eighteen months ago and one of the big things that i started talking about around the fire. Was that that same group said so. What are some of the things you do like. How do you manage this next generation. I started talking about some of the tactics that i do and they go. Oh you do what and a lot of those ideas are in my book and the way that i wrote the book is that you know we talk about. It's all based with data but we then talk about stories from small business all the way to large business and everything in between and then we have tactical takeaways and one of the big things isn't i start are off. Many pieces of this book is that google is one of the best resources to look at all of the negative things that are being said about millennials and yeah it is millennials are entitled needy. Killing cats is one of the ones that comes up and these are the most search for items that are coming up automatically on twitter and if you just go to gifting you look at the gifts. I think this is a good example of how this generation is perceived and one thing that i talk a lot of people about is we've got to stop using millennials a synonym inexperience and instead start adapting our ways to actually not not only accommodate this generation but to bring or corporations and companies along to be better corporations and companies and one of my favorite quotes from a friend avenue point and he said millennials aren't the problem they just expose the problem and so a lot of these aspects of the book is <music>. Some people will come to me and say. I think that this is just a book about leadership. Let's say as it is in essence percents in its core it is about leadership and it's about a generation that seventy one million strong that is a huge generation. We're talking about right now. In the marketplace thirty seven year olds all the way down to twenty three year olds that is a vast population of of people and if you think about some of the contributing factors into what makes these this generation different than ones before there's no better at our place to look then their college career. If you look at the millennials they had beepers. I remember i mean i'm right on the cost so i'm thirty eight right and so if you look at my college i didn't even have facebook until the day the year after i graduated from college allege hide a beeper if that at my senior year of college you juxtapose that to the younger millennials that were given basically an iphone with snapchat snapchat on it at age thirteen. That's a huge difference in the generations. One thing i said out in the book is that as we look at this generation we've got breaking get into two different generations one older millennials which i call the oregon trail millennials because you know what i'm talking about you have actually played played oregon trail at some point in your upbringing and that the younger millennials i call them snapchat millennials because they're given up phone with <hes> at thirteen and they have conversed mostly within their social circles via snapchat so one that thing variable that makes them very different is technology acknowledging the other one is when the recession either them or their parents so the older millennials were actually in the workplace by the time the recession hit so they were forced to learn new ways to adapt and be entrepreneurial the younger millennials saw their parents lose their jobs so what that's actually he created is a generation that is looking more for security and more for a place to hang their hat and an increased emphasis emphasis on purpose which will talk a little bit more about so one thing is break them into to the other thing to consider is that regardless of what generation russian urine regardless of your an extra boomer a millennial or agenda z. We can attest to this idea of what i call the pinterest station dacian of generation and not always generation. It's affecting all of us and there's no better place to turn than the first day of school every year and on the first day of school goal you look at your feeds and it's pictures like this right abigail first day of kindergarten the teacher's name these perfectsmiles cure the the hairs absolutely perfect and it's exhausting. It's absolutely exhausting and not only that but i also use the example on my daughter's fourth birthday. This is a few years ago. It was the night before ten thirty we we got the kids down wrapped presents and my wife if gave me her phone with append pinterest picture of this saran wrap contraption that wrapped around their door the war with over one hundred balloons as she opened the door. It would all come in and i say now three balloons. This is exhausting testing. We can keep leaving living our lives this way and one thing that i encourage all of my employees that work with me is you gotta stop comparing your insides other people's outsides because this is the case and stop putting yourself under such ridiculous pressure and we'll talk a little bit more about what that means but a lot of my book is really about how do you keep millennials fired up and if you look at what they're looking for from their organizations it's not ah different than previous generations in terms of the first thing they're looking for. They're looking for money and benefits so make sure that you don't lose sight of that the other thing that they're looking for for as a positive work culture flexibility and opportunities for continuous learning this is according to the deloitte millennials survey last year and so you look at things like positive work our culture. The last thing we need to be doing is going and buying a bunch of ping pong tables in kegs because our culture sucks instead. We should work work on the core of that culture and that's why in the back of my book i say throw away the kegs of ping pong tables and the participation trophies in the trash because culture really starts with good leadership so one other thing that i talk about is that i had turned me and say chris. I've got a fulltime. Barista got got a cereal bar but my people still aren't happy and i said yeah because the problems exist at the core and if you look at culture you look at what makes that the wait is. It's really a byproduct of great leadership. Great cultures are byproduct of great leadership and you look at what this generation is looking for within their leaders. It's inspirational operational leadership autonomy transparency and constant feedback so the first one is a really interesting one right inspirational leadership. A lot of leaders think they're inspirational on. If you ask bob who leads let's say thirty millennials a bob. Are you inspirational bottles at yeah they light up and anytime i talked to them you know i'm super br inspirational then you ask to people on bob's team. Hey is bob inspirational. Their first question is bob gonna find out as bob's not gonna find out okay no he's not inspirational ease the opposite of inspirational and that's also i have created the millennial leadership assessment which actually actually assesses from a three hundred sixty view some of these key leadership qualities that this next generation is looking for another one that i think think is important to talk about his autonomy transparency and i talked about autonomy within structure which basically means this generation a a lot of us. I know i can attest to this hate. Being micromanage and so- autonomy is really important piece but also this need for transparency and i think people people automatically think that transparency just means that they either need to cry in front of their people or they have to show all of their financial results and what transparency he really is reflected of is this need for connection and one of the contentious things i say in the book is that everyone should follow their people on social media so when it comes monday you can actually ashley connect with people hey meg. That concert looked epoch like well.
'Game of Thrones,' 'Veep,' 'Big Bang,' seek final Emmy nods
"Off the headline is game of thrones Veep two shows that have dominated at the Emmys are both going away in the same year conventional wisdom has told us that well game of thrones is the front runner for the outstanding drama and the Veep the front runner for the outstanding comedy ME but people as you know spoiler alert did not like that final season the game of thrones the great being over the finality particular came right before voting actually began so the question is did that impact things and on the comedy side there also is a sense that maybe there is so much political fatigue that people may have been a little tired of the themes that V. sort of swam in even though it was a strong finale if I do say so myself but that's left both categories potentially open to spoilers but Joe what do you think is the TV academy too predictable and ultimately will fall into line with the shows that everyone's predicting will life be front runners you know Mike I will defer to you on most things any related or spot anybody else other than myself I am not in any expert however I will say I do think at least in the nominations I'll be shocked if game of thrones doesn't get a whole bunch of nominations that cast his beloved and the cast is not to be held responsible for the writers I think is going to be a disconnect between Twitter and TV critics verses academy members who mostly still think it's a great show now whether or not they wind come September is another question there yeah you know there could be a whole bunch of surprises but in terms of either show not getting a whole crap town of nominations I think it's highly unlikely that we will see plenty of game of thrones and Veep nominations now here's a prediction that you can back me up on and no matter what happens on Emmy nomination morning there will be plenty of disappointments and part of that's just because we do live in this era of peak TV but there's still only seven slots for drama and comedy and that leaves not a lot of room for new comers or for shows that haven't been nominated in the past now you and I've talked a lot about why not just expanded to ten but makes total sense right I think it's a no brainer at this point there's enough great television programming that if the Oscars can certainly stretch it out to ten nominations as a potential there's no reason you can't have that on the TV side as well where there's so many outlets making TV and so many great TV shows being produced at the same time I also feel like an egg we've talked about this over the years like you and I privately it's ridiculous that the TV academy doesn't bring back an old category which is best new show the fact is you know TV is a continuing medium and we have shows that continue to get nominated year after year and that's fine a lot of shows produce great work every year they should be nominated about I feel like one way to recognize the fact the TV's also involving medium that continues to create new things every year is to do a best in show category and maybe even some best new debut performers there are lots of different ways that the TV academy could find ways to recognize things and honor some of its best even if all these award categories on ultimately end up on TV yeah the the problem that the TV academy faces now is the fact that TV has splintered so much that two comedies look like dramas dramas look like comedies you've got talk shows some of which are are variety shows some of which focus on single topics you could like splinter a lot of these categories but they'd academy fears of category proliferation and what that means and and you don't want to for our show as a result so they run into a lot of these issues and and even when it comes to expanding categories to more nominees then suddenly they have to offer more tickets to more nominated up people and that certainly may pull back from the the amount of money that they make as well there's still a business yeah the academy of even though it's a nonprofit they still need to make your money as well in order to stay in business so a lot of issues that are hard to solve but ones that we're continuing to talk about as awards continue to be perhaps even more important to these different outlets those money problem nothing that intense around set read his things of Netflix and Jeff Bezos at Amazon could get together over weekend and pull out their wallets he would change comes loose interest and fund all those you know maybe there needs to be a secondary venue where people can can attend watches I look as I don't know but those sorts of issues seem to be secondary to the fact that TV ought to do a better job honoring its own in mall I am a long known and loud and noisy skeptic of enemies and the imports in which the town puts on them because I feel like at the work really should be validation up and the amazing paycheck as don draper walks once said that's what the money is for if you're going to be involved in the enemies and you're gonna make a big deal anyway then you might as well have those categories reflect the breath of the amazing error of television we're looking for right now well get ready now the nominations are coming out phase two of campaigning is just about to begin

Anchor Entertainment Rundown
Claire Foy Says She Was Never Actually Given That Back Pay She Was Reportedly Promised for 'The Crown'
"It's recess, and I did end up seeing mission, impossible fall out this weekend and I can confidently tell you that I did not understand a single thing that happened except that Henry Cavill grew a mustache to try to trick us into forgetting that he was superman, but I'll never forget and they'll never forgive speaking of hiding behind your facial hair. It's time for the news or as I like to call it your recess from the real news. Here we go. A new cooking show is coming to net flix called the curious creations of Cristine McConnell. It was inspired by the Instagram of McConnell who makes weird creepy pastries, and then post pictures of them. We are in the middle of a trend where apps turn into cooking shows nailed it was inspired by Pinterest. This new show was inspired by Instagram, and I think now it's time for a baking show inspired by Tinder where two opposing teams bake an extravagant cake and then take pictures of the cake on a hike. So people know that the cake is outdoorsy and adventurous and then take a picture of the cake with a dog so that the cake seems playful and nurturing, and then add a picture of the cake at a bar so that at some level you're warned that this cake is not looking for a serious relationship that cake is sending a pretty strong message with that bar picture. Don't let the dog picture fool you. It is a trap tenure barris, the creator of blackish and right. Her of girls trip is leaving ABC studios to accept a potential nine figure deal with net flicks. This is just the latest installment in net flicks poaching creator from another network. It just happened earlier this year with shonda rhimes on a separate note. I had to count what nine figures meant on my fingers. And then once I did, I had to Google how much money there is in the world because I was worried that Netflix had maybe used it all buying shows that haven't been written yet Claire Foy who played the Queen in the Netflix series. The Queen was promised backpay after the news broke that she was paid less than her male co star this despite the fact that she was playing the actual Queen from the title now clear for says she has not gotten paid yet, which is very good evidence for my theory that Netflix has used all of the money. This could cause wides. Spread chaos, but don't panic. Money is over. So let's just decide on a new currency right now, my vote is for gently used hair ties or half empty tubes of chat stick either way. I am a millionaire now, the Chilean adventures of Sabrina are coming this fall. It's the reboot of Sabrina. The teenage, witch starring Kieran Shipka who was so ice cold sassy as Sally and madman that I was almost like, whoa, Sally take it easy on your dad, Don Draper. Yes. He brings suffering to literally everyone around him, but you're mean, girl, I roll is going to make him wish he'd never conned his way out of that horror house and even better news. The series will drop on Netflix right before Halloween. Is it just me or do you also suddenly yearn for the holidays? Right smack dab in the middle of summer. Do you feel it too? What are you doing right now? Should we throw on some costumes rosta Turkey and watch? It's a wonderful life. Oh, yeah. And just. One more quick thing over the weekend, Nick Jonas, former Disney star and member of the Jonas brothers, a pop group that was basically Hanson except that they all had Brown hair and didn't want anyone having sex before marriage got engaged to good, Joe pra actress, former Miss World. One of the biggest celebrities in India and friend of Meghan Markle's who wore the sickest purple hat to her wedding. These two got engaged after dating for two months. So I just wanted to give you a heads up that the rapid celebrity engagement is here to stay and I couldn't be more thrilled getting to know each other is for normal people when it comes to my famous is I want couples and I want them immediately. Do you hear me celebrities? You'll get a fiancee, you get a fiance, and just when it seems like you should be going on your third date, boom, you get a fiancee, here's how I want my celebrity relationships to go. Oh, hey, I just met you and this is crazy, but here's my number. So let's get married. It's a perfectly legitimate plan. What it lacks enforce. I'd it makes up for in. Ooh, they did what take care guys. I'm Olympia heroin, and I will catch you next time until then recess adjourned.
