The Most Common CRO Blind Spots
"Someone approaches conversion rate optimization their first instinct is to do what the first instinct to syrup off everyone else. Okay see things that they think work. They think everyone else's smarter than them and so they take these ideas. No doubt looks interesting. They hear about a blogger. Doing something like oh. That's interesting and then or this this worked for this other store our competitor and they they take that and they run with it and it doesn't work for them and they're like line and this work well. There are a lot of reasons why it might not have worked. Main thing is that you didn't think about what really worked for you right. You didn't go back to first principles and think about the customers. That are coming into your store. I think it's a huge problem. So you it's it's shiny toy syndrome. It's the grass is always greener. So i go outside. And i see. Oh well this across the street. This other store has this way cooler side than me. And i perceive them as being more successful reality i have no idea what their businesses like it all but i just perceive them as being more successful for whatever reason and i say all right well then i just attribute that to whatever thing i notice unlike yeah and thus we have some shiny toy syndrome action happening and i think that is where people get in trouble yeah. I think that's right like what ends up happening. I had this conversation with a client a few months ago where they were like our biggest competitor is doing this. We should do this. I'm like well. How do you know that they're doing it right. And they were just like just like shocked. And what do you think they're conversations were internally that led them to this decision and then the response to that was they. Didn't yeah exactly right. What you don't realize is that everyone is a group of smart people on a zoom call trying to figure it out in the dark like everyone else. Yes we're all in a cave with a candle and maybe there's eight people with candles. They might do slightly better but we still. It's such a young industry and it evolves so quickly that i literally. I don't think anybody knows what they're doing. No one knows what they're doing right. What i'm doing to go back to as we're firestone at a series. I think he's still has a series. This is called now right. And that's wildly popular because it gives you clarity and safety and a sense of strategy for cheap right like you can. Just go and look at this without works okay. Great and a lot of it actually does work because the problem with conversion rate optimization is that in many ways it's like getting to just basic first principles getting some best practices in place getting something that's familiar for customers and that makes sense to people right but then when it comes to doing something that's more like custom tailored to the specific needs of your customers. Everybody just like. I do what they don't know what to do with it. And that's where i come in So what should people be doing instead. So we've established that like the shiny toy syndrome. The grass is always greener. that is problematic. And you're just kind of when you're doing that you are. You're blindly throwing stuff against the wall which there could be. You're gonna get success some of the time but we need a. We need a framework. We need a better approach here. So how should i be approaching it and then we'll get into the most common pitfalls or missed opportunities. Yeah i'll tell of an anecdote that i like to tell my clients especially when they first come in the door if you ran a physical store right assuming those still exist. I don't even know but if you ran a physical store people come in right and there's some about a foot traffic and you. The owner of that store are behind the counter. And you can observe right or you can talk to them. And so the problem is twofold number one. You can't. you aren't observing them and the second is that you can't talk to them necessarily can be like hey. Do you have any questions. And what happens in that. Process of observation conversation in a physical store is that you understand the customer's needs a little bit. Better you may not close the first few sales but eventually understand. Oh people are coming in for this. I should be making a couple changes to the store. Changing the way that i'm marketing myself or putting the this stuff over here or whatever it is right and so there's something that's observable that you can see right now. How do you take that process and apply to e commerce. Well i think that you can actually look at what customers are doing and ask them. What motivates them. I don't think that's difficult the problem that when you're stuck behind a computer all day and your as nerdy as i am you. It's not your default to go out and talk to customers. It's not your default to go out and observe what customers are doing. And when you try to do that you're stuck in an application like google analytics which is bad so the process of understanding what customers say and what customers do is a little bit more slippery and difficult but no less essential right. So how do you go about doing that. Well a lot of the tech industry has figured this out and it's using a lot of unsexy terms like research analytics and data right. I like these things. I'm getting excited. I like these things. Because that's why i get up in the morning i get up to research customers right and you may not. You may be if you're listening to this in your store owner. You're probably waking up to ship product to customers grow. The store grow the business. You might be thinking about stuff. If if i'm lucky and you're my client and i think that for me like the fundamental answer is that you need to go out and understand what your customers are doing. And you need to be a little bit more proactive about it. And it doesn't come naturally in retail as an industry right because normally the people come to you and you can just look at them and that's the research. The research already just happened because people were shopping with you and you understood what made them really light up and buy your stuff and you got that feedback on a daily basis but really all you're getting feedback as people complaining about that where their order is and occasionally anecdotes from your friends about the products. That's like your research process. And maybe if you're lucky you go in and look at g. nathan. Conversion rate is bad today. That's it but nick. I'm my best customer. I know what they want. I don't don don don right. I know what i want in my world view has quickly been wildly warped by being so close to everything. Yes the business owner. Yeah exactly like you are. Actually it gives me no pleasure to report that you are maybe the worst example of a customer. The storm okay. You're yeah and once we accept when you're starting out and you have no customers like you don't have a choice but like at some point you have to move beyond that and then that's where you start you need to start figuring out your customer and you're right online. It is so impersonal divorce that it gets strange. And so you need to go through and do the customer research talked to your customers on the phone. Oh my gosh. Pick up the phone call and try and uncover okay. How do they see themselves. Why do they buy and then also do it at a larger scale through customer surveys and what they have heard you say that i love and because i have found exactly the same thing to be true. Is you do a customer survey and often you could find that like that one magic phrase that suddenly becomes the headline on the website. And that's the thing that really increases conversion rate

He never ever won a baseball game as a pitcher in the major leagues. He never winning game for the dodgers didn't pitch. La never won a game in brooklyn. But here's the thing. He had two worlds championships and built many many winters as a manager. and i wanna talk about perseverance. Because he took any job he could get to stay with the dodgers. A lot of people would have been cut when he was released. A lot of people would have been cut away from their wa- employer. He took five. I mean five. Low paid solitary year jobs as a dodgers scout from sixty to sixty five then. He was hired to manage in the minor leagues in polka telo. Idaho then for a minor league team in logan utah where he won four titles there he had say and garvey and lopes and yeager players who had helped him become a really successful manager but he was a company man guys and refused to work for any other team but the dodgers and then they finally gave him job the managerial job in seventy six seventy six i. I saw this guy. The first time i was a kid is twenty two years old and miami whereas working and he was so emotional about it it was the most important thing is life so this guy is a study in perseverance and how much he loved what he did seventy three years one industry one company one and there's no other place he'd rather be in. La there's no place he'd either or as you'd rather be than the dodgers tommy. Lasorda was a guy who loved what he did. I said this earlier today A latino people had the words caught a song. Japanese people have the word crooked. All the same thing. It's heart if it were ever. He did he did with heart. He had some ups he had some downs. He had some flaws always lead with his heart. And that is thing on. Never forget roy. Firestone is with us and for people who don't know. Roy had a long careers at tv sportscaster. Of course many people know you roy from espn and all the years. He hosted up close so one of the best interview shows of of all time in my opinion. Thank you and in roy. I was thinking that with tommy. You really had to work at it where you really had to get in there with your toolbox and extract. Something out of it wasn't tommy kind of the opposite. Was he the one where where if you if you ask them. One thing you just wound him up and let him go. I tell you quick funny story. I one time asked about players of his that would get hyper ventilated or dehydrated before getting started. Burt hooton pitch for the dodgers. And says you know something right. We have one guy on our team that gets so de hyphen. before beginning. they have to feed them fluids in his arm What's that word intravenously. I said yeah. That's right time. Because yeah they gotta put an iud. His that was tommy. Tommy was always you know. He's sinatra's friend. And i had many events with tommy for fundraisers and stuff and one night i gotta do an event with frank sinatra and tommy lasorda. It was truly one of the most thrilling moments in my life and he made it happen and that was when he did that. Ultra slim fast thing for a while when he says you were tra slimfast but that was about it was over quickly but you know i i think about tommy today i just think about. He was the greatest friend baseball ever. Had i mean again he may have been derided by some of his critics or opponents and he took it really seriously wasn't an act he he hated to lose you. I think you probably play it or talked about the kingman moment. Paul olden by the way was the guy who asked the question. He was the announcer. many angels. at at what point but and of course there was so many other anecdotes and you could see it on clips on youtube but the thing about it is. He always always believed what he was saying. It wasn't really an act. People say oh yeah. He waits for the camera shirt but it was real. It was authentic. it wasn't made up. And he had a he. He lived his life complete opposite way as the guy proceeded. Walter walter olson was kinda somewhat dour series and quiet never said anything.

Betty Ford's Healing Legacy: A Conversation with Susan Ford Bales
"Today, we're joined by Susan Ford Welcome. Susan. You are aid author, photo journalist. The youngest of four children to President and Mrs Ford. We are appropriately here at the Betty Ford Center, where you're also on the board of trustees of the Hazel Betty. Ford Foundation. Your mother's legacy. was as a breast cancer survivor and advocate, and as a woman in recovery, and as an advocate for being a woman in recovery. How has the legacy of your mother? Affected your role here at the Betty, Ford? Center. Wow Her shoes were really big to fill your So when she stepped down from the board and I became chairman. I. Think it was harder than living in the White House actually because. We mother and I come from two different parts of recovery. She is a patient and the family member. So we have very different opinions of things than and what's important to us One of the things that she made me do, which was extremely painful with sit on every city every single committee. And participate on my witness finance. Finance. But I learned it. Sure. And so I feel like she did a great job of preparing me to be chairman. So it's it's just we come at it from a different angle in a different perspective family and children's services is extremely important to me because that's how I was affected by this disease. Did you come to the the role of being the chair here at Betty? Ford, did you come to that reluctantly? No because I had been on the board for cheese, probably fifteen years I'm it had just been a long process Mother was gracious and allowed me to raise my children before I came on the board because I was pregnant when the. Betty. Ford. Center open. So. I don't think I came on the board until my youngest was first grade or second grade, and so she gave me some time to get my children raised in at least in school because it required several days travel and all of that in childcare and all the complications that we go through to participate in something like that. Let's go back a little bit and talk about the history of the Betty, Ford Center there's a lot of people who think that when your mother found her own recovery in the late seventy s, she went to the Betty Ford Center. It wasn't even here now was, how did the Betty Ford Center come to be. Johnson from Eisenhower Medical Center decided that. They wanted to have a treatment and it had been in the plan at Eisenhower for some time, they wanted to have an alcoholic treatment center on the campus. and. So Leonard firestone mother's dear, friend was also on the board of Eisenhower. And so Johnson Leonard. Kinda. Tag. Team. Durham. and. She was really in a recovery about four years. But she agreed and I and I thought that was a very courageous step to be so early recovery. So she came to all of us children and she said. When I'm long gone. You're the ones that are going to have to live with the fact that your mother had A. Drug and alcohol treatment. Centre, named after you. How do you feel about that? Wow, and we also we don't care. I mean. It's what a great Lexi you know. She was one of the first to step out and and share her story So once we got past that it was just a matter of mother and Leonard Raising the money. To get this place started and of course. Way? Back, then in the early nineteen, Eighty S. The Hazel and foundation played a role also in the birthplace. Can you share just a little bit about that? Well, mother spent quite a bit a time when to Hazelton, because Hazelton had done it. So well, they were probably the leaders in the in the sense that they had been around the longest And it was successful There's lots of treatment centers that haven't been successful. Some other went back and spent probably close to a week there visiting with counselors visiting with a staff talking, how do you do this? What did you do? Right? What did you do on? Why? What makes Hazelton successful because we basically wanted to copy what they had done, but in a different location sure who would have ever imagined decades later. The two organizations would come together and I WANNA to come back to that in just a minute. But First Susan I want to address an issue that. Always bothers me and then set the the Betty Ford. Center is seen as a place for. The rich and famous for the exclusive for those who can pay out of pocket. But that's not at all what's happening here is no and less than one percent of the patients here are what we would think of as celebrities. Yes. We've had some celebrities, but so was Hazelton I mean. So as other places everybody needs treatment, it doesn't matter what you do that determines you need treatment. So, and they don't get treated any different than. My Mother didn't get treated any different Long Beach. The women, she shared a room with. So it's the same.
Iowa St AD sees football games with 30,000 fans
"Meanwhile Michael and ask about the Iowa state athletic director who's telling cyclones fans that the football home games will be played at no more than fifty percent capacity down there Jack Trice stadium unless there's some kind of change in the state local health guidelines what's interesting that means no more than thirty thousand fans will be at the game at this point I think they were did twenty two thousand season tickets yeah and and I wish you a nice following the the bill to competitive team down there but H. bombs down there or what the score is actually pushing this state bustles down there John yeah I don't know if that's a huge structure I will speak to to start their you know because thirty thousand will get reckoned go a ton over that in their budgets right it's the first step but it's not like you get fifty thousand she in tickets sold there and there are you reducing them you measured twenty two thousand to thirty thousand a little bit different I DO picnic ERP I don't think they're doing anything that and they've already taken a pay cut with the cultures and trying to reduce costs and that everybody knows at this juncture probably that their in store for something like that go again the question is do you want to put it in for heart vascular do you there's there's no no real option I decked to doing that right now through the golfers there's no real set idea maybe making that I noticed that right now you can you can just wait and see how this thing plays out the first one that they tend to do something like that if you have featured a measure to social distancing and they have hundreds of thousands she still uses a little bit different for them but all the schools are trying to figure out different ways that to do it now you can go about doing it and it is the the golfers will fall in line I'm sure all of that but that's that's what you get into a major revenue crunchers that unavoidable budget cuts in your athletic department and the last one ironic lesson when it comes to football program because that is the most upset for that so you can make the most money she try to preserve as much as you can your football program but boy you know acting governor golf team last week right there with the get the the Firestone tracking everything else in their defense something's going on already they can't they they can't get past which was already in place so it's it's it's gonna be difficult more difficult for some schools and
Military Role Widens in Pandemic Response
"Do you see the military on a path to contain the outbreak in its ranks well sort of two parts of this one is what are they doing to protect their own personnel and they're I think they're they're they're doing it immediately good job I mean they have the enormous advantage that they have a younger healthier population as we know the Firestone you know tends to target less healthy older people it gives them an advantage shows the outbreak of the Roosevelt that got out of control but again you know we got one one sailor die and I think at this point so twenty percent that is the main factor biting if there was a huge challenge here for everybody I think they are they're doing okay on that and learning as they go the big challenge for me is using the defense production act and DOT's unique talent when it comes to production distribution and logistics the bill but we need to build in there I don't think our federal government has done what he could do it nationally on P. P. and now on the critical shortages existing supplies we get to that testing regime just about everybody says we need without build more stuff than we not responded I think that the federal government was fast enough to meet that responsibility let's talk about what that stuff is personal protective equipment you alluded to there and of course there's test kits there are ventilators which have been in short supply in some places but it's interesting when we asked the secretary asked for a few weeks ago about that about you know mobilizing defense industries in particular he said that's not really that's not really our job it's not really that kind of industry this is a presidential authority that he would use on other kinds of industries but not necessarily something that defense department would concern itself with yeah mark and I've had that conversation a number of times and and I well I I disagree with him the following sentences initial matter yes this is supposed to be FEMA and HHS that are taking the lead but just like with the field hospital the gun bill which would done largely by the army corps of engineers DHS and FEMA made the request into your T. took the lead because they have the capability and that is my strong belief is that the defense department of the department of like three hundred million dollars and procurement a year nobody in the federal government comes close they are the ones with the skill set to tell manufacturers we need ten million swaps we're gonna we're gonna figure out a way to make you build them we need a million caskets same thing so I think the DOD both in terms of logistics and production should be much better used by the federal government we get a dusting capacity we let's talk about testing capacity for the military before I let you go because we just heard that they are about a quarter of the level that they want to be by the end of may they want sixty thousand tests per day just for the military what's holding that up well the same thing and that was a big part of the argument I had with the secretary was okay yeah forget about the country for the moment DOT said two million employees helpless contractors that they depend on still protesting capacity for them and I think the fact that they're not there even in that critical he shows you the lack of a capacity that

You may have noticed that we borrowed our podcast. Name can talk from this hilarious. Talented and complex Jewish woman. Can we talk? Was Jones signature. Tagline sometime. She's it as a punchline. Sometimes it was a setup. It was an invitation to her audience. A signal that she was about to confide in them. Here's Joan on the show in the early. Nineteen Eighty S. I would not cheat. I would not cheek Maine because nobody asked me but I not because I think why we talk. I think my husband's spooner man okay. Which is very hard to save. I feel very close to you. I especially if you can. We talk was also Jones way of calling attention to her flaws and other people's her way of saying let's stop pretending and tell the truth here. Can we talk? Let me tell you something. The reason I have nothing happy the way I'm blessed is because I'm getting older at least seven very drop because Oh oh you don't know what it's like to get older too. You know what it's like to go in the morning to take facial mask and realize you're not wearing what so. Why did we borrow her? Tigon FOR OUR PODCAST. When we started the show Joan had recently died and we were all steeped in the debate about her role and her complicated legacy as brilliant and hilarious. But also crass and sometimes cruel. We love that. She had so many dimensions and that she believed in telling the truth about women's lives and expanding the range of models. We see all things we knew we wanted to do to. We also liked that. Can we talk was an invitation to our audience to join us in this project of storytelling and with that.

And it was make up your own lines and get your own scenes going and everybody wanted to be the star second city and everybody wants to get their stuff and so it wasn't like being gracious. It was like I got a better idea I wanted. It was very competitive and that was great too. I learnt in second city. You have to talk up and I learnt the freedom of you. Think it's funny try it. Don't wait don't think about it. I still do that if freed me. It taught me to be tough. It taught me to fight. If you thought you're Si was good you went into four four and a taught me co with your instinct. Only do what you truly think is going to be funny. It changed my life and then you you came back to New York Nissan. You learn so much from second cities are how had your comic persona change came.

"Dan You talked about. How if it's only been a year? Sometimes a team will say. Let's give this guy a chance to turn things around. But it's been a couple of years in in Detroit with Matt Patricia. Why do you think that team came out before black Monday? And said we're going to hang onto him despite the fact that he's one In two seasons as many games as Jim Caldwell one in a single season before he was fired in Detroit I think the key is bob coined the GM right he comes from New England. He gets rid of Caldwell he goes and six out Patricia who knows from New England and he has sold ownership on. We can build this thing. Long-term here's what Martha firestone foreign said about her decision to bring back both former patriots quote. We expect to be a playoff contender. We expect to play meaningful games in December as she's referring bring to next season when she brings him back whatever he's told them about here are signs that it can work. They've bought whether they're correct or not. I think you know the former New England crew. That's running the Detroit. Lions has convinced Detroit Lions Ownership. Here's why this can work here. We're sorry it hasn't worked right away but two years isn't long enough. Give us another chance. And we'll see how much does the GM matter when we're looking at these teams in trying to evaluate whether or not they're going to move on from their head coach well matters a lot. It commensurate a couple of different ways one. How tied together are they did the GM hire the coach? And right now when when Quinn goes Detroit cold wells already there. You figure we'll cold well. It's not going to last because Quinn's GonNa WanNa bring in his own Guy Lo and behold that happen happen so if you are the guy that the GM hired that might help you if you are the guy that GM hired but it's going poorly and you're the the first guy the GM hired then. Recent history has shown us that you are the one in trouble and the GM is not there are coaches out. There that will tell you that. GM sits in the owner's box. He talks to the owner all game. He's the voice he hears while the coaches are down there on the field losing and it's pretty easy for the GM that kind of position himself. Like hey this isn't my fault. Let's make a change and try it another either way. I do think there are situations where you see more and more around the league where it goes in the other direction where. The coach kind of picks up in San Francisco. John Lynch came because Kyle Shanahan wanted wanted him in Buffalo Brandon. Beane came because Sean McDermott wanted him so I like that. Formula Teens are using now or they get the coach. I coach brings in mm somebody. He knows he can believe in. They understand the salary cap in the same way and can do all that administrative stuff together. I think that's that's a formula that looks like it's working in a few spots.
Henry Ford's Rubber Utopia
"It all started in in nineteen twenty five. Henry Ford was having lunch and his Dearborn Michigan Mansion with his good friend business partner entire magnate Harvey firestone Harvey. RV and Ford had been friends and partners since Ford started building cars decades earlier. So yeah just remember like he invented the model t which I like cheap car and basically he brought the car to the mass. Exactly Mr Firestone had begun ranting this time primarily focused on the impending rubber cartel that had been proposing England by one Winston Churchill. I am not a crooked. You know that payments de Yeah with a cigar and he's like on this day I I am not a crook and it will live in infamy. Yep that's him. The purpose of also the was Churchill. The king no the purpose of the rubber cartel was to limit the export of rubber in order to not overextend national resources. In case there was another World World War One thousand nine hundred eighty five probably a good idea but harvey firestone didn't like that idea. He believed that rubber prices were going to spike in the US as a result and therefore negatively affect firestone tires. Not some things never change Harvey firestone was not alone in this fear even even presidential candidate. FDR feared the effects of a rubber tariff. Remember was viewed. As the automotive industry's chokepoint seen as even more crucial than oil it's crazy. The the automotive industry relied on vulcanized rubber for literally everything from tires to hoses gaskets. A price increase of any kind could sink the young business so there there was a legitimate fear of turtles. Pain passing seems somewhat reasonable. Also it's it's it's kind of like okay here newsflash guys. If you're listening to this this might lose some you know in. I believe in climate change. And it's SORTA like yeah making some changes like you know not dumping tons of poisons into rivers and stuff might be more expensive for some people but in the at the end of the day. It's good not to have poisoned rivers and it's also probably good to have like rubber to defeat the Nazis. Yeah Germany was totally destroyed and they were afraid of something all of Europe. Yeah they're afraid of something like that happening again because those wounds had not been healed all and Churchill was just saying like hey fellers hello. Hello how does he talk. Talk like this is how are we talk again elegant. Listen listen fellows. That women's of all are still fresh insulting. I say that maybe we just save some of US supplies in case of fruit bikes out to again rubber. Blow Hurrah. Yes that's always saying always saying. Hey guys the whole world was just at war four. I think it might happen again. Maybe we should just like chill and be ready and these guys are like a money so harvey firestone was fed up with living in constant fear of their so he decided the best course of action would be to grow his own rubber smart. This wasn't the first time he had some some crazy idea. In fact Harvey tried to declare economic independence from the UK and fly rubber under the American flag. A few years earlier but that was truly the ramblings of a madman who doesn't seem to understand that you can't just not claim another country's resources by saying this cheaper so I'm just going to say it's it's American now although now that I think back on it that's kind of how we did a lot of stuff so yeah but harvey actually had a plan. He decided that he was going to start his own plantation in Liberia where the conditions were almost perfect for growing rubber trees by keeping the production in house he could avoid all the access fees associated with importation from other countries. Henry Ford had also tried growing his own rubber a year earlier. In one thousand nine hundred eighty four he had purchased this large quantities of land in the Florida everglades only to eventually do nothing with them. It was cheaper for four to import. The rubber. The idea of dramatic price is increase was still only speculation. But Still Harvey's plans had peaked and reports interests and after the lunch meeting was over. He requested that it's personal aide aide Leopold would find out where the best place to grow rubber Leopold come over here boy. Where's the best place to go? Rob A AH go find out how Liberia was the obvious choice. Harvey firestone discovered. It had the perfect climate when he put his plantation there but unfortunately Henry Ford word was very very very racist and he would not dare step foot in such an uncivilised and African society so they came to the conclusion. I mean that the rubber should be grown where it originated in the Amazon. So rubber comes from both vines and trees and you let it grow and then when you chop it you squeeze the vines and Latex Literal Latex comes out trees yeah so it's a liquid and then they they put out onto like big flat drying areas than when it dries. You can pull it up like a sheet of Latex and then you take a bunch of latex yeah stack stack into bales. And then that's what gets shipped out to like Volkan Ization plants and stuff like that. So these plantations are really only concerned with drawing the vines and extracting latex from okay okay and Liberia had the per client. But what about the Amazon Amazon also. Very clearly great. Climate only problem. It's a lot harder harder to get into the rainforest than it is in Africa. Got You throughout the nineteenth century. The Amazon River Basin supplied all of the world's rubber and made up forty percent of Brazil's exports sports at the height of the rubber boom in the second half of the nineteenth century but the Amazon's rubber room quickly turned to bus as plantations in Asia and England. Were able to go. Rubber and much denser populations and much more efficiently in Amazon many natural species that are not present in other countries limit the growth of trees so but organizing united plantations and other countries the efficiency was greatly increased. Henry had another incentive to go to South America besides his racism in End Theodore Roosevelt's book through the Brazilian wilderness. He accounts his experiences traveling through the Amazonian rainforests. One of his most significant observations is that many fast-flowing rivers could provide an almost perfect power source for any industry bold enough to be born there. He claimed that the right kind of senators such his enterprising businessmen of foresight coolness and suggest city who would be willing to put migrants to work for an advantage that would be mutually beneficial will give rise to a a great industrial civilization money. If anyone thought they could fill that description it was Henry Ford art now. Henry Ford did not really make cars. Henry Ford thought that he made men the maker. Men's like me. This builder of meant the cars they produced produced were simply a byproduct of his training. He was praised as a sociologist manufacturer. If anyone could reshape the native Brazilians into prosperous factory workers it was Henry Ford. They don't want to be or so he thought they don't want that.
And then you shake the can
"We'll get oh boy dave. How many beers have you tried so far just this here well? You know I haven't been any festival so that's really you know dampen now what I've done but I'd say between the daily beer reviews.

I probably do about five hundred a year. But of course I can drink mobile and you come on now. How would say that I drink a couple of two three hundred a year? Maybe this year maybe a little ahead of the curve because of been to a few extra festivals but yeah seems to be average here for me. I'm not so sure what it is this year but I'm looking at archive in terms of beers that that I have and divided it by the years I have been archiving beers and so on average per year three hundred and forty nine as wow calculator for that is like yeah brought in the math. He's he's got the slide one ounce officer true true but a lot aren't confessed to the vast majority of the beers that I have are probably probably less than four ounces on average. I view spews yeah. There's the power of the drain. Spit takes probably on average two to three thousand every year. That's if between industry tastings beers. There's that get sent to us. sometimes you know more than once yeah the Armadillo beer not going to happen not gonNA make the show more years. Here's the great American Beer Festival. I mean you're going to drink a few hundred. Yes definitely when we've been to things like that that have you know probably fifteen hundred beers alone. You know at that that we're probably hammered down but I don't know. Would you say that tasting more beers actually do you like that better or would you rather just have like a hundred really good beers. You know every year I'd like to do both both is that you had to go. We have three hundred good beers through the bad ones to know the good good ones that you'd like to stay exactly right. I mean there's beers you.

Inside Donald Sterling's Clippers Era
"Grew up in los angeles in the eighties and i remember watching clipper games on t._v.'s a kid. The games themselves weren't weren't really anything to talk about. I mean the team almost never won and yet the voice of the clippers ralph lawler. Somehow made me care well. That was my job and part of the craft. I just felt that was my job to find a way to keep people interested did in a game. That very often wasn't very interesting because we had a lot of those lottie years. That weren't very interesting but there's always a story to tell if fifteen win season there's some young player or players that you've got a story to tell about them that that humanizes them. That makes people likes them makes people root for them. How rookie was a master at making the clippers likable no matter how much they lost honestly think a lot of fans tuned in for ralph more than the basketball because god knows there was no one at the actual arena except for penny marshall and billy crystal. How did you become a clipper fan because no one was a clipper. They asked me to play. They said listen. We only get four guys tonight. Can you still dribble sports arena. Yeah i had tickets for awhile and we they were great but there was no challenge you know and then a friend of mine calls it's come on. Do you want to go see the clippers play as a all right. There was nobody there. I mean it was a triple double meant. There were three couples. Uh at every level the clippers screamed not showtime but that didn't seem to bother donald sterling or at least it didn't seem to register register. He got a lot of negative press but it was attention. People knew his name and he liked that. That's kind of all. He really wanted to be the center center of attention. That's why he started throwing his party's. They were fabulous donald and shelly sterling's infamous white parties so called because i guess we're expected to come wearing white. Everybody came in white except for donald who got to wear black. L. is just fabulous. It was just a big white party. The biggest white party took place at the end of summer as a way to kick off the basketball season. We'd have the players there. They'd get up on stage and a lot of the fans and a lot of ticket holders. Were there down in the white. Show intel tell don casey attended the party's when he was a coach for the clippers westie cups like this high so you can't drink too much wine little hotdog sticks in a multi-million ekberg. His bailable white party is notorious after uh-huh one time with my wife i i was never allowed to go again. It wasn't quite my style anyway but was so seedy an oily about it is he'd have forgive me but it's true he'd have like grade c actors and actresses. The hangers on the people wanted to get back in show business but he'd also mingle mingle with people who were stars. Billy crystal was one any hired more than just impersonators. There were some lovely ladies walking turnaround. Donald called them hostesses. He had them at every party. He threw he'd actually advertised for them in the paper looking for california model types but they were glorified. Call girls there to look good and entertain. The male guests and shelley had to smile and endure it another public humiliation at the hands for husband too much one. The shelly said maybe not enough. There was always a photographer roadster. He had to have a private photographer for everything everything he did. Give a hand to america where he were walking around him. His voice was talking. He was like yes fabulous. This the mirror quentin richardson was drafted by the clippers in the first round of the two thousand draft he was from chicago played college ball there and then declared for the draft after his sophomore year he was barely twenty years old when he landed in los angeles inexperienced his first donald sterling party. We know we were there whereas the is is his guest athletes but then you had i guess you would say his friends and his normal guest is like you know definitely not the same type hyper looking crowd is we are and so for us. We will kind of standing there and just check everything out and it's like you know. This is for a lot out of us the first time this is the first preseason team type owners meaning or house or any of that. We've ever been to have been involved in so i'm i'm dislike. I'm be respectful say will serve because then i'm over here may want it all and we wanted with player los angeles. This was the best part of the party for donald sterling showing off his players. Don't need have the individual players. Stand up and tell why they love l._a. One of his favorite questions and so you'd have all these guys standing ended up you know danny manning and charles smithson yom mark jackson and stand up and say why they i love l._a. And there's a lot of beautiful girls aren't there and i'm you hong. Come on please. I remember four wilt chamberlain who was getting up there and he was almost at the end of his life and he looked very rail thin to me but he says what what am i doing here. I see you you tell me he goes. I don't even know this guy. It was almost heartbreaking. I was just like okay. I'm ready for somebody to make the first move so soon as somebody else leave. I'm gone like i just don't want to be the first one to leave but from out of here he would hold your hand and just would not let go was it was really really uncomfortable. I mean all my god you. He just wanted to someplace else. The thing is as awkward as these parties were. Donald never seemed happier. He got to be the bell of his own ball and for a few hours a captive audience had to at least pretend to think it was really cool that he owned the worst human basketball because in real life no one was donald sterling so donald found ways to manufacture that for himself to force the conversation to the fact that he he owned the clippers whoever happened to walk up he would ask him advice about the team he would go to the airport after a game and the baggage handlers i would say donald sterling over to me and said. Do you think we should trae. Danny manning you talk to the waiter to restaurant talked to usher at the games is famous. This thing is what i think of my coach just as likely he'd be listening to a cabdriver as he would be to a general manager a scout in bach loud he would call me sometimes was late at night. You know i'm roy firestone. You know everybody. You've watched all these interviews. Tell me about larry brown and why he should be the coach of our team. It's ten hindu eleven at night. It's the owner of the clippers. I'm not a basketball coach analysts. He goes roy. Your opinion matters you know he called billy crystal said. What do you think of larry brown. If you say i should hire him. I'm hiring them. Billy crystal must've told him to hire larry brown because he did and it was a good higher in one thousand nine hundred and again in nineteen ninety-three brown actually led the clippers to the playoffs for the first time since before donald on the team but then

It's just would be slighty. I do get chicken salad on a croissant, which I know you have a bit about croissants. I do. It's very difficult to eat. Yeah. Because the croissant is basically an edible lending mean. It's like it's like eating a cloud of breads. No, it's not it's not a solid. No. No. Yes, I can attest to you. Now from your bread. What do you want for your break? Just to let you went up. Do you want to Rome stay in a solid warm with roles? Okay. In the New Orleans different brands. You don't even deserve to go beyond a role.
