So that's big on the docket free. So what's going well. Aside from the book what's going wealthy lately aurora. We'll just really taking advantage of the coronavirus to lean into what really matters to me. I had to pivot so many people. After the coronavirus pandemic i had my last event february. Twenty twenty in some miguel de amd mexico and it was so much fun and it was so looking forward to the rest of the events. I had scheduled for twenty twenty twenty twenty one but that had to get canceled but the benefit of it is. I leaned a double leaned into helping people with their books. Which i love and also you know had a chance to go well. What really matters to me. A a reconnected with my family in british columbia and making more time for friends. So i don't know what changed with you but i think there is some value in going. You know what it's not all about making money and there's a lot more to life than that it was Looking back at it now obviously. There are inconveniences associated with it but but by and large. It's it if it was meant to hurt me or cause me harm ended up having the opposite effect. It's been it's the twenty twenty was one of the best years for for many of the same reasons you described there. Yeah i think that as a as a you know in north america won't speak for the rest of the world. We needed a wakeup call to go. Like hello are you really living the life meaning and purpose that you want. And that's one of the things that i love about helping people with their books. I'm curious if you find the same thing. Most people think the benefit of writing. A book is to have the book. My background's has coach. And so i find that there's so much value for people to discover the gold in their own personal story and to look at some of the worst incidents in their life and go. You know what that changed me in ways that really appreciate in value now. I hadn't really thought about that. But you know. I'm gonna stop hiding that story from the world and administer it be athetic real and this news at the speed of trust so when we are allowed to be real when we give ourselves permission to be real a lot. Good can come out of that. I agree wholeheartedly. And i would add that. One of the worst things you up to do. I think in this day and age with the what's available to you is is attempt to write your book by yourself a for If for no other reason than the fact that creativity requires more than what you would be true creativity because you have to meld the differences to to get the unique it comes out of it and so i always tell clients. You can read your book by yourself. But it's going to the. But i'm going to bring two angles you have thought of and i'm gonna see things phrase things in a way you would phrase them and from that. You're going to have a much more. Richie story to tell exactly. I think a lot of people get confused. And they believe in order for it to me their book that they have to actually be the one on the hebrew word typing every single word. But there's a different team people like you and i who are word wrangler. Who spent you know more than ten thousand hours. In more than a decade loving words carrying boat story structure understanding deeply. What makes a book page turner. And what makes it a. And that's what we bring to the table whereas the person who whose book it is they bring their thoughts their ideas their expertise their life experience. It is their book but most people make the mistake of thinking that they have to also be. You know the word wrangler and you can both bust that myth in fact you know. There's so many books that are written by ghostwriters. Don't know it. They don't realize that. Hillary clinton i'm sure doesn't right her books. I mean she. Knowledge is whole bunch of people in in the acknowledgement section. Doesn't put their name on the cover. Senator john mccain did David coggins ghost written gary. V admits his book ghost written so a lot of people because they don't know that ghostwriters or other people are involved in the team. They shoot themselves in the foot thinking that they need to do everything by themselves and therefore they end up staring at that page forever and their book never sees.

"What you think about. Israel made up imagined remembered reconstructed. It doesn't matter to the mind so the mind doesn't know the difference. That's right it is thinking it well. I'm not getting into the technical part of it. Because i don't feel certified in speaking about that. Let's just do a little disclaimer not technically qualified. Which will have about this in. Layman's champs yes. So i'm not a neuroscientist i'm not a neurologist. I'm not a doctor. I'm not medical. Doctor at brand cannot tell the difference between real not real fantasy made up memories. Ole at night is is that it thinking that it just knows that that what is there. I'm not even sure that it knows that it's thinking it okay. Because then it would have. Its own mind no. It's just doing it. So we have seventy thousand dollars a day. It's not like a little man in the moon sitting there in the mind and then say okay so let me think 'thus let me think that no thoughts come and go. That's okay but let's take our power break and choose thoughts to which our body our system will respond differently because the mind cannot distinguish if it is made up. Fantasized imagined terribly reconstructed or very well reconstructed. It doesn't know the difference. The body will respond so the biochemistry that we're experiencing that is an automatic response mechanism. Now we can use that for our own benefit though laboratories worldwide that are making experiments with that and it's measurable they can measure the stress hormone cortisol adrenaline and so forth and the other way around also endorphins documents. So we can use that for ourselves. Therefore uncertainty can be actually a great inspiration but only when the reptilian is not overly active and saying or signalling to us that. This is life threatening. This is horrible. there's nothing we can do. Hopelessness helplessness control. and then everything else shuts off. We cannot possibly think realistically rationally creatively. He's good question for disease. Is there a good way to quieten the reptilian brain in less than a minute. So i you're trying to compress a book that i don't even know fifty eight thousand words into three words. Well i'm gonna give you ten whiz. Just think of it the situation where ever the situation. You're in right now. Is it surely life threatening or does it just feel as if it was life threatening. I do believe that is a question we can ask ourselves that already. Probably most of the time. Based on my humbling experience will put things into perspective. Yeah i agree. And that is what i was looking for. I think that's one of your best lines is to just sit there and ask yourself. Is this really awful deaths. Now i know that in today's world where is this virus running and there's a lot of fia around having the ability to my people seek and and her families but at the end of the day were exposed to those things every minute..

No kidding I cut the i cut eight thousand words out of actually but now while i'm percolating the subplots two thousand more words have crept their way back in. It's really hard to write without the use of words. I've i've come to realize in books. If i could write without using words it would make a huge difference in the word counts of the book. so i that's my goal for my third book is try to find a way to write the book without words. Then i won't have to worry about cutting them. Yeah yeah maybe Maybe some narrative captions insert silent panel. Here you know gets gets more. Maybe if i if i have someone just draw what i have in mind To right then they just draw in the book and then i conducted be the book. It'll be a lot less words. Be pictures and send that back to your editor and say no problem five thousand. We're talking about cutting five thousand words because there's the pictures there you go got it got everything so it. Yeah and i'm i'm i'm percolating. The third book in the series. Now even though. I probably shouldn't be a contract to do it But i'm doing that too. That's that's in the note taking stage so so yeah Yeah i don't i'm not. I'm not that kind of the brighter dave. I haven't i really haven't thought of myself as a comic book writer as the sole means of my income and twenty years. Yeah no yeah. So the fact i did.

"Billion dollars nationally in in the creative economy we are greater than transportation. We are greater than agriculture. Honestly it's not that it has nothing to do with the money but it just has everything to do with the fact that it's a self fulfilling prophecy of people saying no one cares about this therefore no one cares about this. You have to tell people what they should care about and by like yes. I as an editor fully understand you have to deliver to an extent what people are asking for but you also have to deliver what people need and people need this piece. And so that's why. When i got a few knows you know responses i was not like well. It's published in Major publication or not publish it was published in a major publication. And if i can't medium is at my disposal for that and medium. I don't want to call it a glorify glorified blog because it's not what it is democratized publication. Yes you do not have the guarantee of fact checkers. And the guarantee of copy editors when you read something so you need to be careful when you read things on medium and you need to be careful about what writers you are reading. I will say that for my feature. This was fact checked. I link out as much as i possibly can to my sources and it was copy edited by a professional copy editor that i asked to engage with it so this was done really as if i were at a big publication that is not the case for everything read on medium but as you can see like major publications also published their things on medium to a wider audience because unlike regular magazines that are focused on a singular topic and therefore can go deep into that topic whether that's the new yorker and going into things that are deeply new york or whether that's forbes and going into things that are deeply. Finance medium has the flexibility to publish about anything in the world. And so i do find it to be a powerful platform. I also think it's powerful that they pay their writers. You know i can get paid off of the piece that i wrote based on how widely it's red so please support reunited. Yeah read it. Clap for it at the bottom. There's that little clapham emoji book market share it all impact like weather. I get compensated. Well or less well But yeah they put money behind their writers in their editors and so. That's why so. I do want to like it's similar to a blog in that you may not have editors looking over this content but it is dissimilar and that some of the content is and there are some advantages to that talk about the process of you sending your manuscript to Other news outlets when you do that what goes into sending it out. Are you sending a log line or like a brief summary of what it is and then the whole thing are you know of course with something thirty three minutes long. Are you trying to truncated or do you want to intrigue them in. Try and get them to read the whole thing as is evidenced on his podcast in any other interview. I've ever done in every other piece i've ever written. I am a very wordy person. It is the one skill in life. I aspire to get better at although i will say like for all its eight thousand words. The piece is actually very economic. Because i cover so many different. Facets let's and i divided it part by part so that you can read part one and take a break and then come back to part two and take another break or you can read it all the way through in terms of pitching it.

I can published a blog post once a month. But it's really epic epic blog posts that people share because they love it so much versus writing block post Every week and it doesn't have as much power. I also recommend that you do go really epic and really in on those hard to get keywords. The highly competitive keywords.

Jared Graybeal: Self-Care to Before You Burnout
"Start about how this all came together. I mean you've written this book about focusing on growth and best practices to help yourself come stay focused on growth of course but primarily focused on growth while at the same time avoiding mental burnout. Which right now. I think is a great thing to be talking about. Because a lot of people because of the covid nineteen pandemic just being stuck indoors a lot more partial quarantines uncertainty about going outside and being able to interact with other people are going through these cycles of sort of highs and lows and then hitting plateaus in terms of mental burnout. So let's start with that. How did you come up with the idea for the self help. Oh so basically. I was inspired about three years ago to lead a group at church that i used to attend In a pastor at the time win me to start a group around biblical leadership and entrepreneurship. And i started teaching. Something called taming. The line which is a four part series now decided. I wanted to write a book called taming the lion. The problem was i'm i would never consider myself to be a high level rider. I got average grades throughout like english class in literature in high school and college and so that just became like a self fulfilling prophecy of thinking that i'm not a good writer so with that being said i spent a year on trying to write this book and i guess you could say i got writer's block however one of my good friends a long time ago inspired me to start writing blogs which is much less of a responsibility than like writing a book And you don't have to think that you're a great writer to write a blog at three hundred words or five hundred words thousand works and so i started writing this blog just because of a regular cadence of writing one every month or two. It was called five ways to never stop growing in. This blog ended up being. Don't remember eight thousand words or something which is way longer than my normal blog In normally what i do is i'll write a blog and record it onto my podcast in like ten fifteen minutes this would have been like forty five minutes away too long for a typical structure and i thought about it. It was what. I thought to be a great blog but it was way too long and i thought you know i left a lot out. I could revisit this teaching expand on it may be true three times longer in publishing as a bump to get some experience publishing a book so that we could revisit the original idea. And that's what i did in so it was a lot easier to tackle the idea of writing a book whenever you already sort of created the manuscript as a blonde format way less of a commitment. And so that's what i did and i just revisited. Each thing and i created an intro and in altro whatever conclusion and pursue publishing agency in did all the steps to get where we are now. Yeah that's really cool. and so. How did you overcome sort of that initial imposter syndrome to begin with because you hit writer's block you're already convincing yourself going into it that you're not really a great writer and i know that the the blog helps and impart the podcast has been the same for me right. I kind of wanted to develop more content for myself. Now i'm an attorney fulltime. That's sort of my that is my full-time gig and so writing was more writing was not what i want so i thought to myself you know how. How can i get more content out and obviously you could. Do you know instagram. Or linked in stories or record yourself in post those videos as a sort of log series instead or something along. Those lines develop a youtube channel. There are multiple avenues in the blog. Was that for you but in your story there you talk about how that first year you hit a lot of writer's block. How did you overcome that and get yourself back on track. It's all by getting the reps in. I'm not a person that thinks. I'm particularly great at a lot of things but i do aspire to be and so i know the the practical approach to that is just to keep trying in the best way for me is to keep for example. If i wanted to write a book. I need to write a bunch of blogs. Because if i can't think through finishing this big hairy audacious goal. I can at least commit to a five hundred word blog from time to time and honestly from me. What helps me. Because i never thought myself and i still don't really consider myself to be a great writer but i know that i'm a relatively good teacher in speaker and so a lot of times when i'm inspired to speak on something naturally Why have to put an outline together. So i can speak on this topic in it ends up being a blog so i sort of immersed engineer that thought process of like why know that. I'm pretty good at speaking of teaching. What in order to get there. I need to write an outline. Let me ride outline for a teaching and then that thought process becomes way easier than like. I need to write a blog this month. Should i ride on. It's really more or less would want wanna teach on. And then how do i write an outline for that in building with you know the content necessary so for me. That's it. I just find a half on like how can i don't particularly like riding. But i love the outcome. I love to teach. I love to encourage empower others to live happier healthier lives and so in order to do that. You need you need content is the key. So that's how i approach it. Yeah and i like the way that you put that that you you know that that sort of a weakness for you but you do like the the dopamine that you get from the end result so you can have reverse engineered to how to make it work for yourself and that you like to talk and that got me to thinking when you were talking just now that in a lot of ways that's also another thing that you could do certainly is just record yourself with your phone for example and then take that recording and sort of transcribe it and clean it up and that's already done some of the writing for you really really cool interesting so without giving away your secret sauce because we do want people to go. Check out your book on amazon. Obviously that's part of the reason that you publish the begin. With of course but sorta at a high level without giving away the secret sauce. What can people expect from the book. And what types of best practices are you. Providing people s in the book has been described by multiple people that have left reviews and stuff That it's basically add to do this on how to be a better person and that's perfect for me now. Being unquote better person is totally relative. But again like in the broad general sense of the phrase. that's what i wanted it to be The book's title is the self help book six practical ways to never stop growing. I'm extremely practical person almost to a fault. So this book will give you A lot of thought provoking questions. But then it'll give you practical approaches to overcoming some of the obstacles in your lie and of course the six things confidence competence clarity commitment connections and character right and so i believe that in every season or chapter page of the book of life that you're living in you can grow in one of these areas if not more. It's not all right now. Committing to grow in. All of them is a again. Another big hairy audacious goal may be too big of a task to try to conquer away but even for me. Since i wrote the book picked it back up three or four times. Read through a specific right. If i'm going to be traveling. I'm going to revisit. The connections chapter in brush up on my skills with meeting people in all the creative ways to do that. If i'm having a hard time at work. And i think maybe my leadership ability is is we come to revisit the character thing say it mirrors in my team right and so the book has these steps In these different approaches based off of tried and true principles psychology in my personal experience In the again it's like is less than one hundred pages. You could sit down and read it in two hours. Because i wanted it to be a tool and not another task.

"Are looking for that it differentiates a product so any differentiate. The price to jervis jerk does so you're competing with your article. Which is what's eight thousand words or something or nah no not that abou- well two of them together is probably come to about twenty five hundred three thousand. You know what we're going to get so many more words in this podcast. thanks l. translate it put up. I can't compete with them. But i'm just going to transcribe it podcast. So they can they can read it anyway. Your competition are something that is Fits in tweet or a label with a starburst on it on the front of a of a product and and people will when they get back to the grocery store again instead of deliveries will pushing down the row and looking at the shelf. And they'll see this kind of flashing and climate-friendly there's nothing guiding back. There's there's thing that tells. People are hungry to understand it so andrew. My hope is that we can take an article like yours and we can Attach it to a qr code on those products. And okay. somebody sit down. And you're going to have to spend half an hour listening to roger an andrew in a podcast or twenty five minutes in reading his his His article and then you pass the test back shop right. Will that came up in california There was a ballot proposition. Awards almost ten years ago now proposition thirty seven and it was a labeling campaign ad it was too it was it was focused at anything. That was gino and they had to argue over. What percentage was what you meant. Gmo she label it and it lost but some of the questions that came up was wool. Legal what people want wanna know if their food came from fair trade where the was it union made were. Not where did it come from was the domestically harvest Was it a women. Minority owned business that heart young. And they actually. We're talking about a Were you have about ten different ngos and then is a climate. Plus i guess you wanna say climate minus but that sounds negative. So markers are gonna have an issue with that but it will have all of these different parameters. That people want food to have reflect. And i think that's seen at happened more and more but you could end up having a label of ten different qualities of that will forget about say what it is that it's can't beans will and what happened. As a result of the failed in california passed vermont and they ended up patient passing a national labelling wall but the way that works is that you have to go into something whole smart label and there's lots of information which includes whether or not it was made with genetic engineering but it's surreal effort with people. That are that curious. Yeah you get her outta be simpler ways. Yeah yeah and crisper gene. Editing is questionable. Whether that's even going to be included because it's not a transgender organism. Will and i think that as many good things people can point to a genetic engineering. There's examples there's been scientists in china. That's done some experimental things that everybody said. Why didn't think we'd be doing that. And so there is a there are issues in wrapping up. I really appreciate this conversation andrew. I'm looking forward to more stories from from you. If people wanna find where your work appears is there any any spot that they can can go. Look for our andrew porterfield articles because i think that they listened to this they get an idea of how comprehensive you are trying to put stories like this together but how can they find something that you've written right. I mean the genetic. I am building up trying to keep an archive of my stories on my linked in page. So if you look for me and it's it's andrew porterfield On linked in. I have a set of stories in there an adding to that a lot. I just set up a page on a a reporter page called Wreck you know from the old mutt racking a store the wreck dot dot org and you can find me there and i'll be building up there to And those are a little more comprehensive because If you look at genetic literacy project you'll find all gop stories And an entomologist today. You'll find me through research there too. But yeah the linked in i think is so far went under in paul Where i'm going to try a wear. I'm really building up archive where you can find me. I don't have a. I have a website. You are will go into technical well-meant we're going to be able to find you on firmer table talk actually. We're experimenting with clubhouse now too.

We're going to be doing those on wednesdays at noon on clubhouse and noone is pacific time to well andrew porter fan is been a pleasure talking to you are i admire your journey in an giang kind of following your lead trying to pursue these. These seem concert of questions. But i can't do it with a pin like I suppose you don't use a pin anymore either. Only when taking notes. Thanks for being farm to table talk..

Easy it is not lossless. And in fact i've been doing a little research. I used to know this stuff but it's been some years and Twisted mr is right.

The Most Impactful Marketing Article Neil & Eric Read for 2020
"Super committed to your success online. We've worked with them. To a special offer just remarking school listeners. All you have to do is go to dream. Host DOT COM slash marking school to learn more and get your website online today. Welcome to another episode of Marketing School. I'm Eric Su and I'm Neil Patel and today we're GonNa talk about the most impactful marketing article that needle and I have read for twenty twenty so I'll go first and Neil. You can feel free to chime in but one thing I read the other night. It's from this guy named J. J. A. Y. Couso Oh it's a C. U. N. Z. O. I think butchering the name again. I mentioned it to episodes ago if you Google Marketing. Show runners experience steph troms. You'll be able to find what I'm talking about and I think this is probably one of the most important things I've read in a while because you realize that everyone talks about especially. We talked about this on the PODCASTS. All the time we talk about Oh you have to produce content yet to produce content produce content but like you realize that there's just like this entire sea of garbage content and people are just producing CONTO CON. It's very transactional people are doing. Keyword research on Uber suggest whatever it is and it's just they're covering the answer right there but the problem is create transactional content. What happens is people? Come they get the answer and they leave. And that's it bounced that's it right whereas if you create an experience transactions the first part of the spectrum on the very far end of the spectrum as you take people on a journey right. It's about eight thousand words or so but it caused me to rethink everything we do right. It's okay how good are we? Driving an experience with our blogs with our podcast with the events that Neil and I do they're all at different ends of the spectrum like the products that I put together right or products that Neil does too. It's all about the experience. And if you don't create a good experience if you don't obsess over customer near contents do anything so in that post it was actually talking by making like a show that people love like marketing podcast. Which is funny. Because there's no mention of us and I'm like men may be were very transactional podcasts. I don't know but part of me thinks dot what we've been able to do with this is to be able to take people we've been able to build a community around it so the community is right before the journey right so it's literally you have a transactional of content. That's the first step. The second tier might be. You have an expert so I mentioned an expert might be like a sports analyst so I hear might be sports scores. The second one might be a sports analyst giving you the scores and that might give a little more authority there but then you cross over to building a community so at community example might be Neil night doing the growth accelerator group that we have right that is creating experience. That's creating a bond. That's very hard to duplicate anywhere else. And the beyond that. You're taking people on a journey so I really think everyone should read this at listening to this because it will reframe how you think about things and caused you to think twice about going out there and producing content for condensate. Because that's why a lot of stuff doesn't grow doesn't grow that quickly. It's because it's very ho-hum US neil yet. So my favorite article for the year so far and session at article two video but it's on marketing is Russell Brunson's Ot owes of your on Youtube search for Russell Brunson. Oto otiose stands for a one time offer and he breaks down no matter what kind of products service you're selling SASS product subscription ECOMMERCE. It doesn't matter you can make money through a upsell upon your checkout and you can have multiple works so well do you do it. Yeah and you guys already all know this so I'm not gonNA say hey you need add up saw because everyone already knows that but what he does. He breaks the copy. You should use. You don't have to be as aggressive as him. He breaks down the layout. You should use and what you need. A copy step-by-step and it just works and it's an easy way to make more money and it's not rocket science. I everyone can do it. It's super simple if you guys have a website your website because a chance. Are you trying to sell something? Or people subscribe something or generate a lead and his process teaches you the exact page to us to make more money from whatever type of business you have doing up cells right and people. Can I mean if you guys want to see examples of this you can go to click funnels DOT COM and Russell? Brunson actually has an active challenge called the one funnel away challenge and in there. You can basically WanNa buy his product You County. You can basically funnel him. That's a term that he uses to see how that one time offer works. So yeah I mean I think both contexts pieces
"eight thousand words" Discussed on KLBJ 590AM
"Book at six thousand to eight thousand words a day wow because this so it was so deeply ingrained in me it was so anxious to come out that it just came out like a rushing river even all of the story back in the eighties I owned a little video production company and yeah we did commercials and industrial tapes for companies and the dumping of VHS tapes and things like that but one day I'm in my office in the receptionist says there's some gentleman in the lobby who is just wandering around looking for someone to duplicate his VHS tape and I said well you know give it to one of our engineers and you know give it to Hank and see what it is and get give the guy a price was nice guy African American guy wandering all over the place just having a great all time it was Chuck Berry not a single things like that used to happen with me I was in Detroit with hall and Oates and Martha whatever her name was with one of the very first female VJ on and whatever it's called the music channel VH traf knows that so it's MTV MTV yeah on MTV with their so Martha and I danced and it it it's only the second time in this story that I get to dance and when I dance is totally abnormal so Tommy Mottola with that point was the most famous behind the scenes person in the music industry you're all hall and John Oates are sitting at a table with their jaws hanging open watching Martha and me dance and when I finally finished dancing I got into the elevator and who was the Stevie Wonder I log out from my room there was a phone call from prince's manager saying we have an emergency you have to be out here within the next six hours so I hopped a plane and went out to LA to take care of a principal regency so little things like that you have a tendency to happen they do I met Stevie Wonder in Los Angeles a couple years ago guy great guy just a very very decent person very decent very interested in women I brought him he called me or his people call me to audition me to be his publicist and of course the wonder's music is utterly fabulous who wouldn't want to be Stevie wonder's publicist and I brought an account executive with me she was female she was black and CV all CV could think of is peeling out her beauty feeling out her physical attributes and and he was quite overt about it so he wasn't interested in anything we might say about the list he was simply interested in how beautiful woman I brought with me might be that's amazing all these great artists and we've lost a lot of Whitney Houston that's another tragedy that is what a great singer but the problem was Clive Davis Clive Davis his manager Clive Davis's ahead of arrest records he was the head of CBS records only find your house shop one a bunch of other people like that he was a legend in the business he had a golden here absolutely golden and what if you signed with him George that was the end of your independence is an artist that was the end of your authenticity as an artist because Clive Davis model do you in his own image not in yours my task in the music industry if you came to me and wanted to be my client I told you if you expect me to fashion an artificial image for you artificial mask and tell you I'm gonna make you a star all get to a point where by best competitor in the next hour if you're going to work with me west recognized because not an exchange of plastic it is not an exchange of downloads it is not an exchange of money it is an exchange of human soul and when you were on stage remember that experience in high school what I was describing were on stage you were danced as if your property and the order that the energy of anywhere from seven hundred to seventy thousand people pours through you and goes to some god had inside of you and is utterly transformed and you are out of control you are not under your own control anymore something else is controlling you die if you will allow me to find that self that dance you onstage defines itself that when you sit down at two o'clock in the afternoon I need to write a lyric but no you cannot possibly write one and you don't really believe you've written any of the ones that really works you've ever written before and a four o'clock in the afternoon there's a lyric in front of you my job is to find the gods insight into the world that lyrics that danced you on stage if you're willing to sign up for that and give that to your audience give your lost soul your audience then I will work with you so I had a I'd approach that nobody else took in the music industry because everybody else talked about product no I'm sorry music is not a product music is a maverick change of human so they talk about markets no there are no such things as markets there are people that you are trying to reach they talk about branding no you do not sell some external thing clack on to the oldest artificially your selling the most passionate things the artist has nothing so passionate that in normal everyday life that ours can't even after so they only come alive onstage or in front of a blank piece of paper my job was of what I call the secular shame which is a strange phrase for a science person to use because it was to find that sold inside of you and show you how to share it with your audience want to throw a couple names that you before we go back to calls here did you ever meet Ray Charles no and that's a tremendous regret because he was a seminal influence but I had a client who put out all of the very very very high definition audio versions of all over Charles music by told how much I loved Ray Charles and he sent me over is complete DVD high definition collection I was so disappointed George but here was one of the greatest voices you've ever heard and the orchestral arrangements were all floppy violence he didn't he does stop the violence his voice got so much across but the violence brown him out which cheapens his music Elton John Neil Diamond the beach boys all pay their career to a fellow by the name Russ Regan digital rush we on the highway ran into each other he had been the head of United Artists records and he was having tremendous success with Perry white and with this girl and I helped put this call on the map and I helped put this on the map because why is this phone ringing if there are ghosts will turn to tell me it's time to plug some of my devices are mine if the Smith yes yes yes we know that live radio live radio yeah so at any rate I had been call I got a call one day from person I've worked with very closely I actually one of the two only two people that I ever had over to my apartment for thanksgiving dinner with my family and he said look I know that your son that your Mondays are sacred to you I know you go over every single campaign with every single one of your account executives but I'm telling you you have to be in my apartment tomorrow morning at ten o'clock when I get off the seaplane from fire island and he explained how he had been collecting uptempo electronic dance records for years and he took them I would take him out with him to fire island now the gay community kid away on fire island and tried to remain invisible but when my client recovery analysts are playing these records something happened and never happened before game and more comfortable dancing with each other in public and you know how when you're dancing when you had a couple of drinks or drugs or whatever you is yours but whatever it is a choice or high of choice and you are dancing to music that is absolutely loosely taking you over you were taking you were taken over by cells inside of you you do not know you go into an almost trance state for an hour or two and have those of the gods inside of you coming alive what did the guards inside of all of these gay men turn out to be you expect them to be swish you would expect them to be limp wristed you'd expect them to be feminine no they work how will Indians and fire chiefs pouring out of the cement the things with their dad to give them give them picture books on when they were three years old and four years old as symbols of masculinity chocolate French fries Sir hang out my office that come in every two weeks they spent two days going to the once we had the gay dance clubs for disco music they would come in and they will go to the closeness of the like pornographic paradise for them

I get all that together so by the time I sat down it was about two o'clock and I watched a show and it was the second one you know. It was a thirty minute show and I was like.

I was writing yesterday. I wasn't even necessarily working on the kitchen or anything like that. But that's our frustration is like I want credit for this stuff that I have done a specially in the beginning when it all feels so completely unnatural and you. Who are you know trying to make a dent in not having done what you needed to do? So it's that much more overwhelming. Both in how much there there is to do. Because you're digging out from maybe you know never having had a dishes routine and you're just getting started or whatever but also you know just really pushing passed all of those mental hang-ups that you have against doing it this way and really. Do I really have to do the dishes. Everything that I buy. Whatever all all those things make it such this huge looming thing like I have done something major and we want credit for it all right?

"That six women have accused CVS chairman and CEO, Leslie Moonves of sexual harassment. There also allegations that former CBS news, chairman and current sixty minutes. Executive producer, Jeff, Fager allowed harassment. As you heard there, the story is about much more than moon Bez. It's about CBS as a whole. It's about how major media companies are still having to reckon with the past about alleged harassment and abuse that happened in the past. And in some cases, not too long ago. These are issues that have to be addressed by CBS and by other media companies, and it's Phero who's been leading the way exposing some of the darkest secrets of these companies. His latest report about CBS also about the iconic newsmagazine sixty minutes. Pharaoh sources alleged executive producer, Jeff Fager, quote, enabled harassment and committed acts of sexual misconduct himself. Fager strongly denies allegations and says, it's coming from sources who have an ax to grind look for almost past year sparked by fares reporting and work by the New York Times, the metoo movement has been causing these stories to come to light, but just think about how long it's taken. To get to this point. Now, let's address these different stories as carefully as we can because fair stories about eight thousand words long. The conduct by Moonves who's been the boss at CBS for twenty years allegedly happened between the nineteen eighty s and the late two, thousands. Some of the women quoted are on the record. Then the story also talks about issues more broadly at CBS. What is indicating is that there's a systemic issue here. So let's talk with them about it fares joining me now for one of his first interviews about the report, I know you've been working on this for what eight months. There've been rumors about this for many months and then on Friday, six hours before your story came out, the hallowed reporter wrote about it. CBS stock plummeted, CBS issued a statement. I wonder what it's been like for you as the whole media world's been wondering what you're working on to be trying to to get your work done, carefully accurately, all everybody else's speculating about it. Well, I think you framed it correctly. Brian. It's, you know, noise and interference and. When you work on stories involving dozens and dozens and dozens of sources, it becomes almost inevitable when there so much riding on these important stories that I think really need to be heard that word leaks out. I mean, this happened in a number of the prominence stories that I've worked on over the past months, and that's okay. But I do think it's important for the public to distinguish between the secondary coverage of the story, which is often fraught with misinformation. And the story itself, which is the product of many meticulous months of investigation. You one pretty much every award in the journalism industry for your reporting on Harvey Weinstein, and I think we should try to distinguish between the different stories you've been doing when you write about moon Bez or Fager, you're not lumping them in with a predator like Weinstein are you of? Of course not an, I think anyone who reads these stories conceive very readily that were careful not to draw any speculative inferences here. This is about the concrete details of. These facts patterns and look in the case of Leslie Moonves. This is not to draw comparisons to anyone else, but certainly these are six women. And in several cases, they're talking about what they describe as serious sexual assault. Munoz says he made mistakes in the past, but he never used his power misused his power to punish women. If they rejected his advances, do have evidence to the contrary. Certainly the the women's stories suggest that these are encounters that went a lot farther than that comment allows for. I think it's striking though and perhaps reflective of the rapidly changing times that were in Bryan that Leslie moon vez does exhibit a fair amount of contrition in these responses. And I have to say that in all of our interactions with CBS and with Moonves, which were extensive. We give them a very broad window of commented on this and worked very closely with them. Mr. Moonves personally, to me was very, very gracious and seemed to take the claims very seriously..
