When It Comes to Business, Ignore the Real World
"Reworked book with a look at the essay entitled ignore the real world this goes into that common trope that new ideas are bound to fail or that these things may work for a company like base camp but would never work for company x. and as always i'm joined by base camp co-founders and the authors of rework david meyer hanson. Welcome thank you and jason freed. Welcome sean. I've noticed in a lot of these essays. Start with something along the lines of you always hear someone has said xyz and in this case the quote you use is that idea would never work in the real world is still something that that you find pretty prevalent yet. But that's the that's the standard rebuttal. I still is or or or there's a variation of it which is like that would never work for us. That would never work in our company and so that would never work in. The real world is kind of a catchall for all those variations on that rebuttal. But yeah we still hear that. I think what's interesting is that One of the things we heard up until a year ago is that remote work would never work here or there or everywhere. Feel like dr seuss thing there. But what's nice is that that myth was busted obviously know during difficult circumstances but everyone had it was forced to basically work remotely and it it works. Now it's hard in some ways and some people didn't do quite right and there's all their challenges that come up and there's isolation's all that stuff but at least like the real world in that case was forced to reckon with a situation that what were the real world had to give for second people had to try something new it worked so i think anytime you can bust a myth or sort of for someone to try. Something they believe is impossible is a good is a good time was a good moment. And that's what we just had happened of the past year or so. I think the other
Comedian and Author Evan Sayet Discusses Supremacy and How It Characterizes 'Woke' Culture
"You wrote. A book called the woke supremacy. We've talked about it on this program before. Why is it a supremacy like talk about that idea. I mean let's let's define what a supremacist movement is and what it isn't supremacist. Movement is not one in which somebody has mis gendered plastic toy potato. That's just not a supremacist. Movement supremacist movement is not one in which they found a roaring in a seventy year. Old children's book of a hardworking asian. Man that happens you've been drawn somewhat. Cartoonish -ly eric johnson withdrawn cartoonish lee to a. You know i gotta tell you. This is how fast culture moves the last time you on. We were talking about this stuff and it's already like like late years. In the past. Dr seuss was singled out now. Dr seuss was a leftist. Basically but he was singled out as the cannibal as the wo- culture cancelled culture. Eats its own for a couple of cartoons. He in one thousand nine hundred thirty. He drew a chinese man. Who by the way. If you were in chinatown because the books about mulberry street in one thousand nine hundred thirty the chinese man would have actually looked like that so it wasn't like he was making fun and project. He was running the way they are. But but that's how fast culture moves at that happened that gets cancelled. We move onto the next thing the next thing the next thing and then suddenly here we are. It's insane speed. it is indeed but that's the way it is a totalitarian authoritarian. I e supremacist movement. Right so what is the definition of supremacist movement. It is it is this. It is one in which the members of that movement seek to create a society and then a world but first a society in which all the rights privileges protections opportunities that society belong only to those who possessed a certain traits. All others and eric spelled out the capital low all others are not only to be denied these things but it is a moral imperative to the supremacist. That's society's resources be used to fully disempower forever. Silence and do permanently erased the memory of the existence of all the others so do the woke believed that all rights like right to freedom of speech at long old-age owes who possess the print trail. This we know

Every mondays dogs and influenza who somebody who's influenced you in your leadership who maybe we wouldn't consider all maybe wouldn't automatically think who's somebody who's had not influence on you want an automatically thinking boy.

He ran his own company which was heavy construction up in the seattle area Dams bridges tunnels. I mean big time stuff and he said yep life is a little bit like this book.

"In ten minutes or less no fluff no nonsense prepared to be captivated fascinated and elevated to a different plateau without further ado. Here's your house this dre. You are listening to dreyer's point of view. I am hostess. Tria where the next few minutes talking to you about dr seuss. Episode was actually recorded. A while back. I'm just now putting it out for some reason. So hopefully you'll listen to till the end. It's not nolde subject but it was an interesting one. It was brought up a while back. You as it as a distraction from the insurrection. So am i. what what. What is the deal with dr seuss. We all grew up with it. What's what's the fascination. Most of us grew up reading those books cat in the hat. Green eggs and ham so apparently after months of discussion from researchers they found that two percent of all the characters in the books are of color and the teachers and specialist decided to stop production on six of the book. So six of the books are cancelled from dr seuss and it won't be chosen at read across america day anymore on march second now mike after all these years. I don't know why everybody's trying to get politically correct. Just this past year so i wanted to talk about the six books that are cancelled once offensive to one may not be offensive to others but he has other books. You don't have to read those six here okay. The first one is if i ran the zoo that one offends asians and africans this boy talks about the helpers who all wear their is at a slant shows african men who looked like caricatures and mentions the african island of eureka. Now keep in mind when these books are written decades ago so everything i guess was more acceptable now. Everything is questionable. And to think that i saw it on mulberry street. That book describes a chinese character colored yellow eating bowls of rice and wearing a cone hat. The original version said china man who eats with sticks and it was later changed to chinese man and they removed the color and pigtail third book. That was canceled nick. Elegance pool pronounce correctly about a boy who goes fishing and is told it's too small and he imagines different fish that may come to the pool from the ocean. The offensive part is in you at people or eskimo fish from on hudson bay the next book on beyond zebra features a character called newseum nazim of brassinne who rides a camel like creature called a spicy were spazzy under novum pronouncing that correctly scrambled eggs super as people in very coats that represent. Intuit's innuendo or eskimos. The cats quiz is a book of questions. That has a yellow figure. And a hat asks. How do you have to be japanese now. i guess i would find that one offensive. I haven't read all these books. I really just kind of skimmed it over but those are the six that she are cancelled. Ironically dr seuss spoke against racism and anti-semitism during world war two although he depict japanese with exaggerated racial.

"It's that exact same scenario so we have a long way to go. What you're saying. But i actually feel like in a lot of ways. Were taking a bit of a step backwards because of social media in this kind of stuff. I think that's the other big element in all of this and that so i mean when i look at it i don't i'm not i don't see it has been canceled at all. How many books are there right. Yeah exactly and for me. It's okay there are some that at the time that they will listen Like the book that. I showed you this person who who wrote it. I don't know maybe ali nineteenth century. It's just and this isn't exactly and that's why i brought up the example of my friend. It's context it's context and if my world is this big and in my world. This is what i'm told. That's all i know and only until i have you know this happens or that happens and that has embiid's other people in my world and i start to see. Oh actually my world is not what i thought it was and and we all need that. Gosh that's our human beings just how we are and that we make mistakes and we grow from that so i. I don't see what's happening with. These books cancelled culture with dr seuss at all. I think it's an opportunity It's a it's a learning moment and it's an opportunity for teachers to to pick up the books and have a discussion an us children now what they think about these things. Because how else do we find out what he used. A and sometimes i'll views can be wrong. Sometimes of us can be by is sometimes they can be you know this big. Because that's all you know. So i think i think secreted opportunity to to have those discussions for me having.

"In various countries around the world. Most of it is not directors entity the children's basis themselves a now. Why am i saying this. I'm saying that there are so many dangers to categorizing at a certain point in their lives and making them a green angle. And that's all he ever going to be but people change. People can become blue circles now and multicolored diamonds. And i. i know from having lived through a Having lived through the transition been in the face of total racism that it takes time for for people to recognize that bay themselves. The our cells are have been racist in in different. Wade's i and and win that when the language in when the images win the programming is so subtle and so pervasive. It's hard to to listen to your own sense of humanity and decide for yourself. What do i think. And what do i feel. Am i appreciate my friend. Who sat there that night and told me that because she was telling me what she felt. It had nothing to do with what you've been told so. I think that where we i. The world is crucial. And if anything you know the when i watched black lives matter. Erupting it was it was. It was heartbreaking. Many many holes knowing that I was in south africa at the time. And knowing that although we've come so far in south africa is still so much of that. That happens i guess. Can i interject. I'm going to take both of you said here in kind of create a bit of a hypothetical situation. So your friends. Let's say your friend had twitter. When she was a kid right like kids nowadays to and at the time when she was a kid she was taught these racists things so she then posted on twitter she then grows up. Meets you in realizes. Oh shit i was being taught racist things. I'm not that person anymore. I've now become a better person. And then goes out in desert job but then what happens in. This is what i think. We're out of this cancel. Culture has gone awry is your friend could be doing a job now and those tweets that she did when she was a kid completely ignorant of anything will then come back to haunt her and i know with even with dr seuss. A lot of people are saying well. They counseled the books not cash tag council culture. I would say if that wasn't a thing going on right now. You know the books might not have been cancelled and in your both of your scenarios where people save something or your friend afterward but You know where people are being canceled for something. They say when they're younger it's that same. It's that exact same scenario so we have a long way to go. What you're saying. But i actually feel like in a lot of ways. Were taking a bit of a step backwards because of social media in this kind of stuff. That's the other big element in all of this. And that. So i mean when i look at it i don't i'm not i don't see it has been cancelled at all. How many books are there. Yeah exactly and for me. It's okay there are some does at the time that they will listen Like the book that. I showed you this person who who wrote it. A nineteenth century. It's just and this isn't exactly and that's why i brought up the example of my friend. Its context it's context and if my world is this big and in my world. This is what i'm told. That's all i know. And only until i have you know this happens or that happens and that has embiid's other people in my world and i start to see. Oh actually my world is not what i thought it was and and we all need that. Gosh that's our human beings just how we are and that we make mistakes and we grow from that so i.

I think it's an opportunity It's it's a learning moment and it's an opportunity for teachers to to pick up the books and have a discussion an us children now what they think about these things. Because how else do we find out what he used user and sometimes of views can be wrong. Sometimes of us can be by is sometimes they can be you know this big. Because that's all you know. So i think i think secreted opportunity to to have those discussions for me having There are racism exists in the world. I it exists and is something that we have to respond to and it is our responsibility to do. So and so i feel that when these moments are there to respond to have the discussions to make the changes That's sign that. I'm gonna choose house just going to say definitely a moment to stand the opportunity to stop listening to people especially for people like myself of nyla we will be the first to admit where incredibly even may not even realize that were incredibly privileged just by being white males united site when it comes to an opportunity to lead on most it more importantly i think listening to people is this kind of nightman is when not conversation goes down A to actually listen to people often. We always can not such a week of dialogue about chessel sausages.

Everyone knows someone. The naval by not just as the web says well we did have kind of the the rest will I would be tightly. Fine with us which i thought that was not on. Devil's advocate just say you know the Is all about because just said it does effect will impact most of those in some way otherwise. We wouldn't have this conversation today.

Yeah i mean. I i think it makes sense. Obviously he was writing for at the time. And you know now if something like that were being right. And i think you would make sense that people would be offended by it and i think it would be justifiably so at the flip side of that. I do see why somebody might for the purpose of especially nowadays people are so kind of Being from the us obviously you have certain groups over there. That are very tip stoking arguments and creating conflict so i potentially could see certain people over there creating stuff like this for the purpose of grading conflict but that would be a specific purpose very different than i see dr seuss's intent which is to entertain kids with plenty stories kind of stuff. So yeah yeah the. I'm glad to hear the most people were reasonably reasonable in their response. Sixty four percents. I'm gonna just quickly chinanet before. Because i think you reference in about off seatbelts No longer being around And about garnered that people purposely kind of create in this kind of atmosphere of counseling.

Bush really you know we always put out each linkage full night. Whatever pose a few questions some public to get a knife. Got a little bit after sections on this topic. Of course Is surrounding the recent consolation will removal of six doctors use titles so we started with a really easy kind of questionable.

Because i really wanted to split opening point just to see what was said. Just get a non site right. What do you think so a few of the initial replies suda was i generally agree with the council of anything a superior dos Ondon another fasten. Yes but it's not council coach. I know council the books. That wasn't a twitter mob frosting at the mouth about these books but the company dollars license to the books decided to not print or sell any Books they are fully with narrow is to not do this song kanda ping on back on a guy to when What your initial thoughts are not pretty lie site Opening question which wells d agree with the consolation removal of six dr zeus title. Say i'm going to approach this with From from two angles one as an artist and the other as a person who's worked in schools and with children and to have been the books so from an office perspective. I know for myself that there are certain There's a book that i actually created. Twenty years ago. I wrote a children's story and stated it and when i come back to it I saw to share. Its reading it in at school. This elements that. I changed when i read the story when i created it. It was a creation story. And there's something in there about god created the world. When i read the story at all i changed it. Nobody said to me that. I wasn't allowed to read that story. I changed it based on who. I was reading it. I changed the looking at my audience. Knowing i okay. I want my audience to engage with the story from the point that i had written it to the point that i was not a teacher. In all these different schools my view had changed and my view on my own spiritual practice changed my own. I'm going to share it with chilton. I'm working with all right. So did you feel that you. Did you feel that you personally to make those revisions and those like up. -tations to to to include more more than children is enough. I basically changed it in such a way that it was more secular that the language in it became more relatable to more children and didn't exclude any of the children that i was working would not said to me that i had to do that. Mean i could take it any story into. We even really bad ones but it was my own decision even though a special because it was something i had created. I felt that i had a greater responsibility to to it and again thinking of other all sorts of things whenever we shot to fan yesterday. Who actually got me into. The spoken would open mic wild new talking about how in sometimes you read something and then after feeling where that how that flowed through the just sharing it and being with an audience. We both realized that we we do very similar things. We be goal. That can be changed things because audience said that didn't work and i didn't like that. It's just something josh. And that comes from the interaction that comes from it being in the world so now taking that to the books and the decision to pull those titles. That's a decision made by those who are taking responsibility for it when i saw it. My first response to that was. I didn't see as cancel culture. I saw it as As as them seeing where we are in the world where where where the world was when those books came on and where we are in the world now and the responsibility to all the children especially children who are the least hud. And so i felt okay. I i'm okay with that sorry So i'm going to play devil's advocate here. Just a little bit on the subject so when you did your book you made changes based upon where you were at the time you raise audience based on that reaction. You make the changes. But it's your book to make changes to so dr seuss is deceased. And it wasn't so wasn't dr. Seuss making changes to the book. Based upon reactions it was and it wasn't making changes to the book. It was literally saying nobody can ever read this book again unless they already have a copy of this so it's kind of a little different situation. It's it's this takes me to a Huckleberry finn so a few years back. They went to change huckleberry finn the text of huckleberry finn because it uses the n. Word quite often which was a common word when it was written down. It's relevant to the story and so some schools and stuff being pulled it completely from the shelves so kids couldn't read huckleberry finn and a group basically said well. Let's just rewrite huckleberry finn and take out anything that might be offensive. But then it's a different story and so i guess that's other people making a decision about a book that's not theirs so it's kind of a comparison. 'cause i'm changing stuff iro. Yeah it's me making the change but this other people saying this is i'm dead and now people generations from now are changing what i wrote and i and i think that it's still. It's still a step in the right direction. Meaning it's it. It can allow a discussion to be had. It's not to say that those books vanish picked on they. They they're they exist. And maybe it's.

As you tweeted representative he said as americans suffer and demand Relief and systemic change republicans across the country of united to suppress the boat. It's disgusting. We must pass the john.

They are just absolutely trying to stop. Cut the amount of people that can vote right cutting rolling voting to try to get away with vote by mail. Trying i mean i. I can't even keep up with all the techniques right georgia. They thought well you know that. Sunday voting where black people how souls to the polls that lets them vote.

He knew all the who girls and boys would wake brighton early. They'd rush for their toys and then whole the noise show the noise. Doi's noise noise. That's one thing. He hated the noise. Noise noise noise. Then the who's young and old would sit down to a feast. And they feast on they feast and they feast. Feast feast feast. They would feast on who pudding and rare who rose beast which was something that grinch couldn't stand in the least and then they do something he liked. Leashed all every who down in whoville. The tall and this mall would stand close together with christmas bells ringing. They'd stand hand in hand and who's would start singing. They'd sing sing sing. sing sing.

Then he loaded some bags and symbols empty sacks on a ramshackle sleigh and he hitched up old. Max then the grinch said got up and the slaves started down toward the homes.

And we started accumulating homemade and keepsake type ornaments. Each year we get a metal ornament with our family portrait on it so in eighteen years will literally have a tree called memory lane but these handmade and photo ornaments. Don't necessarily go with the aesthetic vision. I have each year. We have our ornaments stored in bins by color.

Needles deep green on top and silvery white below. This tree is more cone shaped so it would fit well in a smaller room or tucked in a tight corner.

Even if the tree gets dry so you won't be left with a lot of clean up if you forget to water it for a day or two. They often have slightly crooked trunks. Which can be a plus.

Needles result in a more texture is christmas tree and it's also a popular choice for read this the writers especially love a white pine for a minimalist christmas tree. Look they're flexible.

I have literally no idea myron what to expect from college basketball. At all this season in terms of the virus in terms of what's happening on the floor. All i really know right now. Is that both duke. And arizona announced yesterday that they are postponing their opening games. Because of covid and tennessee's rick. Barnes got diagnosed with corona virus. So let's just begin with tip off tomorrow. What's this all going to look like. Why i think that's the million dollar question college basketball a lot like college football. Most of the games are scheduled to be played obviously cove. It was a challenge for college football. I think for college basketball. That'd be magnified by about ten because you have more than three hundred team that are going to try to kick this season off. So i think everybody's just crossing their fingers and hoping for the best and not knowing what the head is on the theme of the three hundred teams. All kind of spinning. This roulette wheel is a lot to process. What are the protocols. Like the health protocols teams employers going to try to abide by this season. I think that's another important question and it's difficult to answer in that. There are so many different protocols by state by county depending on what's conference iran. I mean you're talking to thirty two different conferences. I'll give you an example. The american athletic conference. They're going to test three days per week during the season can't do a consecutive days. That's what ended up like guidelines. Recommend however at temple abide by the city of philadelphia's protocols which say they have to test seven days before competition every single day so you have even within conferences different rules and regulations. I've talked to athletic directors and california who are telling me that they still have to submit plans to their local authorities to get approval to compete this season. Forget host the team. Forget any of the other details just to be able to get back on the floor so you got see a lot of chaos unfold in the coming months so you are very clearly a healthcare reporter on top of being a college basketball reporter so myron explained to me what is happening in these. Pseudo bubbles where regular season games are gonna take place. One of them is an eleven day. Event starts tomorrow called bubble ville. Which has real dr seuss fives from what i can tell. What exactly is bubble ville. Well we're gonna find out but it's basically a bunch of teams all in one side of the megan sun in connecticut. Where the idea is you have everybody. At one location. There will be testing measures. Extreme testing measures with the goal being the kind of emulate. What you saw with the nba bobble on a on a somewhat smaller scale. They don't have the two hundred million dollars that the nba spent. Two resources are different. But i think their attempt is to mimic that. And when you're there there will be security in these hotels making sure that people are following protocols and then there will be specific places that you can and can't go. The challenge is going to be. Can you do that for dozens and dozens of teams and make sure that everybody's following the rules we saw the nba and the resources they put into that. It's a different different level. I think with college basketball in an attempt to pull this off for the next couple of weeks there are certainly some challenges attached to that. And there's already issues at bubble ville right. I mean the news baylor and some other schools have already pulled out of this tournament. Florida kobe issues. They pull out Baylor scott drew head coach. Their test positive announces that yesterday they pull out and then arizona state which was scheduled to play. Baylor in bubble veal. Says you know what we're not comfortable so you already have teams that have been moving things around an idea that i think we'll see throughout the season. How can you play college basketball with three hundred plus teams unless there is some sort of pseudo bubble environment

"To try to pay for this since it traces. The evolution of these arabic formula told me nothing so sometimes google searches don't work people. Sometimes you just have to <hes> you know facebook. Let's see i don't remember i swear swearing by ally so here we go <hes> <hes> <hes> so this is where here let me see at that title and that's the way that that okay so you can't swear by all about eve soul anybody who swears karatas being wrong as well because by saying i swear to god i swear to allah whatever at the end of that oath of office which is tradition so i just want you uber religious people to understand that there's nothing wrong with distinct lewis councilwoman swearing in on the dr seuss book i mean and in her message pitched toward her children is exceptionally well. I mean i it is good that she ever a single mother who was raised by a single mother is doing something to her. Children gordon can be proud of so. Why are we always try to knock everything someone does or god. God don't like it. That's not the way jesus do not not the way that's not the way we always done it this way. So how can how can start to being tradition. We don't being traditions well apparently so and that's the thing that you all have to <hes> come to grips wit kristen elite. I'm gonna keep saying it that way because i really do not like people who tell me that i'm going to hell because i curse or i'm going to hell because <hes> you know i didn't pray seven times a day. That's muslim elite kristen elite jewish elite pagan elite. I don't care what religion you are but when you start telling me that my lifestyle what i'm doing is wrong then you're wrong because guess what is my life. Some people choose to go to hell some some people choose to live their whole life well and and and and and and helping other than they choose to go to heaven you know i mean they actions in health them choose to go to heaven. I don't want to upset anyone here but also don't want people to think that it's okay to just judge someone based off of one incident. This woman may be one of the best councilwoman this county has ever seen. She may be the worse. I can't predict the future. I couldn't anti but this action right here shows me that her care for her family outweighs what people think of her now remember back in the day a obama had got a first elected and people were speculating that he was going to <hes> <hes> swear his oath of office on a koran and then when he used abraham lincoln's old old bible people were shocked <hes> so how you saw conspiracy theory that said it was hollowed out and he did the real ultimate office and his office whitaker on it will so so much stuff going on with obama. I mean that do couldn't fricken eat ice cream without some. I report on it but that's another story for another day way out. You got to check this story out. You can hit de radio page day reposted it. You can also have him to the washington post. Though i know you guys don't let the washington post because you know this liberal newspaper. I don't care if it's a liberal newspaper or a conservative newspaper. I don't i don't i don't care if they got stories that other places don't have avenue want to read it so if it is slanted towards one side of the other i don't care. I just want to read the story. You know destroy right here. It gives you a little bit of an tale in detail regarding you know <hes> who took an ultimate blake says at president john quincy adams took the oath of office on a volume of law and eighteen eighteen twenty five to a roosevelt in the bible fourth ulta off of the night no one and more recently represented representative rashida tele bead democrat from michigan one and i two muslim women's elected to congress us thomas jefferson iran so whatever is as it's a silly thing to argue about people we have so much more important things in the world to worry about but you.

You'll go instead of a bible. When she took her oath of office her five-year-old son liam seven year old daughter bella held a book when she was sworn in on august the thirteenth so this is the reasoning why she did this so oh her mother right <hes> was a single mother as well as she worked in a coal mine and so she would tell her things you know tell us stories. Tell her to be a good. She can do whatever she wanted to do. You know give her empowering messages to make her believe believed she could do what she wanted to end his world so she chose to use a book that she thought would inspire her child that she read when she was pregnant two thousand twelve oh the places you'll go so it's the same method mother gave her is in his dr seuss book that she wanted to give to her door so we have that now.
