Kamala Harris, in Guatemala, Discusses Plan to Deter Migrants
"Is in Guatemala today. If the start of her trip is any sign yesterday, Air Force to had to turn back after take off for a safety check. The assignment is going to be a challenge. Mrs Harris first foreign trip Mission, President Joe Biden gave her find ways to reduce migration to the US by improving conditions in Central America. One of the big challenges in the region is how ineffective governments there have been at solving the simple, grinding problems of daily life in their countries. Speaking from Guatemala City today, Harris said she and Guatemalan President Alejandro Geometry talked about a key issue Corruption on the issue of corruption. Uh, the conversation that I had with President Janet Today was very Frank. And very candid, and I think this is a quality that he and I appreciate in each other. Following all of this is Adrianna Beltran with the watchdog group, The Washington office on Latin America. She said Harris is right to focus on corruption. And unfortunately, over the last several years, what you've seen across the region, including Guatemala has been a backlash against anti corruption, anti impunity efforts and increasingly actions by corrupt elites to undermine democracy and the rule of law. So as long as we're on the subject, explain in simple terms how corruption actually reduces the impact of USA to Central America. When we talk about corruption in Guatemala in Central America, we're not talking about a few bad apples, a few corrupt government officials that accept bribes But what we're talking about is systems that have been put in place where corrupt elites and in the case of Guatemala, increasingly tied to criminal groups have taken hold the government institutions And have used their positions of power to enrich themselves by embezzling millions of public funds at the expense of the majority of the population.

"Let me ask you a little bit by strategy cried. So are you an employee strategy Are you a founder and owner. Yes the way we have. We have four partners at the moment.

Beat each other up beating each other up our ideas up together and that's good because we trust each other but we have different starting points right. Different perspectives on the same problem. Okay so one question. I think the people struggle with is is what actually is strategy. And you've got right there in the name and you are an expert in strategy strategy consultant. So can we talk about strategy for me. Because i think people struggle with trying to pin it down define what it is. I think if you can't explain what it is. Whatever your domain then you don't know enough about it so a strategy for me is desperately simple. It's from a latin. Were from a greek word which means generalship. So it's the organization of people resources over time to achieve and calm and we work with the way we work with companies is to try and make that a simple in as practical as operational as we can so typically we will start off not what the mission vision objective statements. We'll start off. We have a mapping process which we've developed over the last five years we help them to talk about the roots of their complete who they are where they came from a wide.

Getting Ghosted and Rejected
"Talk about rejection because it's been my observation from a lot of different personal conversations. I've been privileged to have From my friends who trust me with their deepest darkest secrets to complete strangers. Who for some reason. Open up their deepest darkest secrets to me. Like in an uber driver or in a i know meeting just getting to know somebody.

I think really honored and and Fortunate for people to be so frank with me be very vulnerable with me and i know how much these encounters these everything from like your deepest truest love to like a one night stand to like just attempting to talk to somebody else and getting rejected like how much of a scar. That can leave or how much that can like. Change your entire outlook on life for yourself and it can be really tough to talk about publicly or even to just even like your friend or a person to say out loud. It's really personal.

The Trials of the Infamous Defense Attorney Frank Carson
"A sixty four year old attorney is making his way slowly up the concrete steps of the courthouse in modesto california. His body is wracked with pain. His heavy shoulders are hunched forward over the cane. He carries in his right hand from his left hand swings. A cracked black leather satchel stopped with his legal files. He's here at eight thirty on a monday morning. In june two thousand nineteen to do the unpopular work of defending the wrongly accused the thoroughly guilty and clients at every point in between he's made this trip thousands of times in better days. He swaggered the flamboyant terror of cops and prosecutors and judges. I haven't had any qualms about going after law enforcement for lying. If they fudge once they fudge it's open season. This is frank carson the most combative and controversial criminal defense lawyer in stanislas county. His kidneys are failing. His sciatic nerve is aflame and his morning. Vicadin hasn't kicked in the effort to get up. The steps makes him wince but he hates to give any satisfaction to his enemies. He has many for decades. He's defeated his law enforcement. Adversaries in court and raged against them in unapologetically venomous. He names names in a central valley legal community where the cast of characters is small and the memories. long really soon. Gershon your person. You know what it can't be any more personal to the guy that i'm representing and even if i had a doubt about my client's innocence by the time we started the trial usually by the end of it. I was absolutely convinced. I've had attorneys of god wrestler. Soul summer did now and he said. Oh frank you should seen me it was carson asked. I told them off and all that that isn't the point. The point is to win as he shuffles between courtrooms cops watch impasse and a chill seems to enter their mood to the law enforcement establishment. The man with the cane and the black leather satchel is something more malevolent than a clever lawyer. Who pushes boundaries. This is why carson will eventually make his way to the

"Make sure that it is changed. Editorially to reflect the fact that the liability shield only applies to speech of third parties. And make sure that we also make it so that you don't get this liability shield if you are an intermediary that is fully knowledgeable about what is going on illegally or unlawfully on your platform and you could intervene against it and it wouldn't cost you that much and you refuse to do so over and over and over again at that point. I'd say they don't get that liability shield at all. There aren't a lot of issues in dc today in which there's a lot of bipartisan support and yet reforming or limiting section to thirty one of these things that oddly i wouldn't say unites democrats and republicans but it is a thing you hear from from both sides though of course the conservative or republican case for limiting section to thirty is different from from yours. So i'm curious. How your critiques of section thirty differ from those of say donald trump or josh hawley to politicians. That have been very vocal in their criticism for on sections thirty. And you think there's any space for bipartisan reform of to thirty or the site just coming at it from such different perspectives. That this is just going to become yet another political football in our ongoing political national nightmare. Well the the bipartisanship on this issue has been has been alarming in many ways. As as i guess. Maybe maybe that's just where we live nowadays that we should get really nervous every time we see republicans and democrats agreeing on something but but another way of saying it is. They don't actually agree on this right. As you've already indicated the reforms or the changes the repeal that you see the conservatives warning are completely different from what most people want most democrats and others are concerned about. They're concerned about different parts of section two thirty and it really makes all the difference it is absolutely baffling to me that anyone should take seriously trump or holly position on sections thirty because it's so completely gets the first amendment backwards against to thirty backwards. It gets everything wrong. And i don't just mean that. As a matter of opinion. I mean as a matter of doctrine in fact they just get everything wrong on trump's part it's probably because he literally doesn't understand any of it on some of my colleagues part it's cynicism right He knows better. He knows that you couldn't do what he's asking what he's asking for which is effectively to let the government dictate what's a platform can and can't do right. You've got people who are trying to say. Hey if i want to. Spew white supremacist content. You can't stop me right. That's ridiculous especially if you've got a government official who wants to make you do that. That's that's essentially. A a government official wanting twitter to become his private propaganda channel. So that has nothing to do with the people who are engaged in actual concerns for harms that are perpetrated online and so i think it's actually really unfortunate that we even want to call that bipartisan. You know appeals reform. Because they're really not coming in the same place but you know to be against fair. There are some conservatives some republicans who are wanting reform on the parts of section. Two thirty that some democrats want to. But i guess. I just want to. You know sort of split off that whole category of people who want to take away not really section thirties protections but the first amendment's protections because the piece of sections youth or they take aim at is actually a redundant piece by which i mean section to thirty says that you have basically the right not to be sued if you take down material because if you find it to be offensive or illegal. Or what have you you as an intermediary have the right to take a bunch of stuff down that is great that that's in section two thirty but it's also the first amendment affectively says because Facebook and twitter and google and all the rest of them their private companies private entities. Which means they have the right to refuse to carry speech. They just they had their own powers of of not speaking. Not being compelled to speak. So it's it's totally fine. That section two thirty. But that's not why that's not why they have this power so anybody who wants to say. I want to hack away at that. Part of section thirty is really. Say i want to declare war in the first amendment and i think that is not even a legitimate starting point. I think we should just shove and say that doesn't count as actual serious section to thirty reform but at least with a lot of things to disagree about which is the other part of it which is what can we say about companies. Not in terms of forcing them to keep steph up but what are we say about. Companies refused to take things down and not only refused to take things down but will pocket the prophets from not taking them down right so that you've got a coordinated online harassment campaigns on social media platform and not only. Does the platform do nothing. They're actually taking money from it right. Because they get more clicks more eyeballs more out dollars. That's a problem. That's what i would suggest. Is the real heart of the problem maryanne. Thank you so much for joining us. And thanks for in this wonderful paper for the series. I urge all of our listeners.

Very good First of all, I, just to say I'm very proud of the Hawks for Mississippi State big win here for Arkansas fans here in Arkansas. And Sedgley. About to ask you what are your predictions for the Arkansas game and what are your predictions for the Arkansas season like certain Cali-? Thank you. Right, now, I would probably lean a little more towards Auburn because I think. I think they've a lot of good players I mean there there. There's a lot of. Smoke coming out of that program right now. So I'll be interested to see GUS Malzahn. Can. Calm everyone down before Saturday but I do think this game is going to be pretty close Shared Mars anything to do with it. I just think Arkansas has a lot of momentum auburn is. I think it's psyche has been shattered a little bit because of what happened in Athens. Let's get some more calls here and Johnny is up next. Hey, Johnny you're on the air go right ahead. Hello. Paul Hey, Johnny. Johnny we are doing really well here. Hope you are. Well. I'm hanging in there like a bite and sale and congratulations big into house congratulations to Arkansas a good job. You know I was my two things that I want to ask you about and. Number. One you know. A lot of times on your station and and around the country. they're always talking about great running backs. And I I, you know her show. And girly and and bowl. Why is Dairy Kendrick? So never mentioned in those in those conversations. You know it's an interesting question because you know he won the heisman. He has been a spectacular star in the NFL but I think. He does not get mentioned because she was part of such a great team that I think there's a perception that he was good because of the the component around him. However when you watch him in the NFL that shouldn't negate that theory but I just think from college standpoint. He was just part of the system where they every year they turned out another big time running back. Well one other thing I've got a I've got a lane kiffin story. Okay. Courtesy of our friend William Barger better known as redfish. Sure. He. Redfish told me that he said you know say been in practice. He would come over to the offensive problems. Tell them what you play. And more than one time. My would run something different were they could score a touchdown. and. The US speaking of lane. It is my perception. That I think. I don't know why make fires. Lying. But I think. That fiery. Call us a national championship. Well I agree with the second part the reason why he fired him. Was He. Just simply felt like lane had checked out. He had called a very good game against believe it was Washington in the in the semifinals and laying he may be better now but if the time just wasn't the most mature guy in the world and. Say. Say. Someone very close to save in. Very close described. This way that lane was like that sixteen year old son that. you just would not trust with the car keys. I catch. By community I appreciate you love your show and Rolls Johnny. Thank you and I I. Agree I think Nick Sabin Linda National. Championship getaway right there. But you know he did it based on principle and he also I think wanted to prove that he could win one without lane. Any nearly did, but he did not, that's the problem. Let's check out Jane. Jane Lou I'm sorry. Yes. Hello Jane get him Howard I'm well. I have a question regarding the Auburn Georgia game blast last Saturday. They tell smoke Monday out for targeting in the first quarter. But the camera continued to be on him on the sideline for the rest of that house. Do you not have to leave the field and go to the Locker Room when that happened I? Believe that is a new rule. That they put in place this year that you do not have to leave. I don't understand I mean I frankly think if you get kicked out of the game, you probably ought to go but that is a new rule. Well, that happened during the Alabama game and he left the field yeah. The rule went into effect before the season. We'll culture I. I mean I. Don't know what I'd have to defer to somebody else on I remember when it came out. But at the time did not pay much attention to it but I'm pretty sure that is that has just gone into effect. Well when they tell still account of For. The same thing on the Georgia he wants to seal. I think if you get kicked out of the game, you probably have no business being out there but that is just my opinion but that's why he was still there. Well, thank you Jan. great to hear from. You go to Jane from Jane to cheerleader IT'S A. Whole. It's fine for taking my call. Definitely Ladies Day on the show. Good afternoon. We're missing a few of the ladies on the show listen. regarding Ole Miss, and Alabama. And having Seen Alabama and Texas A&M Game that first.

Well we've got it all covered for you after the Games on Saturday the coach doering. Rohan. Dari everything that happened right here. Todd is up next in Georgia. Good afternoon. Hey Mr. mom how you doing today sir, we're doing. Well thank you. Thanks for taking my call. Again I really appreciated just a couple quick points. One one question actually I don't know. If. It's so much known as far as you know, everyone's protocol throughout the Sec? But. If a player. Or a group of players you know actually gets or they're tested positive for cozied and they're put into some type of quarantine situation. Is that player I guess depending on the symptoms allowed to still work out and you know, do you know like daily workout routines were they're just not safe remedy? You know being in bed. Chicken, soup, and watching, TV No if you if you're an isolation in believed to be. Contagious, you are not going to. Be permitted to to work out now. The only thing I don't know the answer to if. If you just simply asymptomatic and perhaps if not. Tested positive meaning that you are sidelined as a matter of contact tracing need to double check that. But there's no way you're going to let somebody who is contagious around anyone right but I'm saying like individually can make you know no well. I. Hate to answer something I don't really know the answer to. But I have heard enough doctors talk about the re the required protocol and. My my best answer would be No, I don't think. I. Don't think it's possible. Right? Just one more thing that it's far as Alabama's running game concern. Do you think it boiled down to more of a philosophy these days where you know they're they're doing what the defense gives them you know with regard to you know having open receivers and of course, the RPO game to where it's like. All right. Well, you know a situation where once they're ahead and then you know they're just trying to run a run the clock out you know they get into more of a of a running mode but the would you think it's it's The lack of of what we're saying as far as just the grinded out pounded. Down their running game is just more of the offensive philosophy nowadays. Yeah I think. So also when you have a really good passing quarterback and you have. Three or four receivers are all world you probably wanted to utilize them. Hey thanks for the call. Appreciate it. Let's check in with David who is in Alabama. Hey. David. We we're doing great. Managed honor talked to the best sports host of the country. Thank you so. Just a couple of takeaways from the first two weeks of the season I wanted to see if you might agree with me Nays Auburn Kent Run the ball. To Stop, the run. Arkansas and a whole lot better than we thought they were going to be. And to who? Yeah I was trying to remember who that guy was last year who we all spend so much time talking about the Mac Jones is. I kept hearing in in August that he was looking great and practice but you know it's another thing to see it in a game and he has been spectacular. Right now this week. With the weather coming in. To get, we'll go more towards the run or stay with the PATS. You tell me if the wind is blowing and you're having torrents of rain I would not. Even. against a bad defense, I wouldn't risk the ball too much in the air on anything but but fairly short passes. Right. I say Gee Russia's for two hundred and fifty yards. Expect to show back I. Don't mean to show back up again but I mean he just He's one of the better. Ones the three or four best running backs in the country and. His name hardly ever. Gets. mentioned.

"The weirdest baseball season in history started last night. The Twenty Twenty Major League baseball season debuted with a clash between the Washington nationals in the New York Yankees, nationals park in the country's capital was packed with. Virtual fans, that's right, the fans you may have seen on TV. Were just images manufactured for the cameras by Fox Sports? In reality, the teams play to an empty stadium because of covid nineteen. This season teams will play only sixty games down from the typical one hundred sixty two right now. There's no intention to have many live fans at any of them just TV cameras. We won't get into the debate about why Fox decided to manifest virtual fans complete with recorded sounds of cheering applause, and the like the TV audience know. Today, we're interested in one of those things that like baseball. Itself has always seemed timeless the stadium hotdog. Too, many of us me included a hot dog goes with the baseball game. The way hot fudge goes with vanilla ice cream. They just belong together, but not this year. Needless to say virtual fans don't order francs with mustard and onions, nor do they reach out and snack a beer from a wandering vendor that's leaving entire industry, high and dry stadium vendors are out of work. That's giving Ballpark Franks the nation's number one. One brand of hot dogs and opportunity to look philanthropic, while also promoting their dogs to fans, watching Games on the small screen on Wednesday, which not coincidentally was national hotdog, day Ballpark Franks and it is donating one hundred thousand dollars to unemployed stadium vendors through a baseball charity in campaign. They're calling frank it forward. They're also asking fans to tweet their favorite baseball memories along with the Frank. It forward Hashtag of course. For every tweet that fans post ballpark will donate an extra dollar up to fifty thousand dollars within a day. Fans had begun complying. Some tweets were clearly planted by Tyson foods. ballpark Franks owner to get the Frankfurt Frenzy on fast forward, but some were genuinely sweet like a tweet from Ban Molly, Heidrick, she finally recalled attending the thousand fifteen world series game with her dad, telling her for the entire five hours that she would be Zombie the next day at school. She said she almost caught a foul ball and yes, she couldn't stay awake in math class. Her HASHTAG, no regrets. The promotion gives a sheen of sweetness and philanthropy to the ballpark francs, which happens to be America's biggest seller of the process. Meet parent. Tyson foods of course is struggling with its image these days between having covert outbreaks at many of its meat, processing plants, and being under investigation by the Justice, Department for alleged poultry price-fixing, but on a summer night. We need to dwell on the bigger picture. Maybe. What's worth spending time on? Is The marketing rivalry between BALLPARK Franks in America's second largest brand Oscar Mayer that brand owned by Kraft, was revived three years ago when its parent put ten million dollars into removing chemicals like nitrates nitrites from its dogs, the attempt to cater to the clean eating tastes of millennials. It helped nowadays craft hines has been doing well selling its enormous variety of grocery store staples to our newly stay at home nation, but how will it compete at the? No, Fan Ballpark. Hopefully not with a repeat of its attempt from twenty nineteen, a hotdog ice cream sandwich. It was made with. Get this candied hotdog, bits, hotdogs, sweet, cream, spicy, dijon, Gelato, and a cookie Bun, according to writer Michael Clare and a Major League baseball publication called cut four last August. Clare's take on what was clearly a desperate attempt to get the upper hand in the Weiner wars. This hot dog mustard ice cream. Monstrosity needs to return to whatever hell it came from. So. Far Oscar Mayer hasn't made any announcements that one this year may be given covid nineteen craft hines got a little more sensitive about the queasiness factor when it comes to the economics of the Frankfurter fight between Tyson and craft Heinz. The ballpark matters in two thousand sixteen Americans spent twenty million dollars buying hotdogs at ball games, so says the national hot dog and Sausage Council. Council apparently, that's the last time they gathered this debt. So the biggest question this year will be. Will fans watching at home still by hotdogs, or will they just eat? Whatever happens to be for? Dinner served on a real plate, not in a little cardboard dog holding. If that happens, the frank forward campaign is unlikely to give much of an advantage to Ballpark, Franks and hopefully. WHO's out of work? hotdog vendors have already found a way to turn their talents to something more lucrative. And perhaps less greasy.

We're all kind of just beginning to live and has such an interesting awesome perspective about it so anyway. Thank you so much for joining us. Rebecca give us a picture of what it looked like for you day in the life before. All this started okay. A day in the life is just real similar to too many their son goes to school. You know we live ten minutes away from where we work. We get into the market. We go to starbucks probably a little too much and Just normal normal stuff. It's just a little more compact here and that we walked. We don't have cars and and it's really easy. Simple life now is talk about when you realize this was gonna be deal and this was going to affect all of life in January so we had just gotten back from our Christmas break. We were offered two weeks. We had some events planned at the school where I work and all of a sudden people were pulling out. Nobody wanted to come to a high and of course we knew about Karenna virus but I was thinking it was not that big of a deal. We went on break for Chinese New Year. And at that point we had no idea that we would not be going back to January seventeenth last day. Anybody went to school or to work and it was the next day that we learned warranty has come in transportation's being shut down. You GotTa stay in Your House. Because this is very very serious. So what did that feel like to you when you heard the news because you had no precedent for this prior? This is unique. You know where you were you stock in what was Wuhan doing that. Maybe was unusual. What will Hamas do any what we were doing? We're a little bit different because we speak the language but don't read it and so we couldn't keep up with all the news. We were told to stay home but we didn't have to and so we didn't so we would get out and walk to Walmart and most shops were closed anyway because Chinese New Year so it wasn't really that unusual but when day we went to the store and the shelves were bare and every line was open and twenty people deep and. We thought something's going on here. This is very weird. And what do people know that we don't know so? We grabbed a few extra things and then a day or so later. Got a little more connected and translated some messages. Oh okay people do that. In three days from ban the city was going to be shut down so we did stock up and not terribly because my husband had to keep reminding me. God's cared for you all along he's not gonNa make your life depend on what you can hold in your basket right now. So don't go there. Don't let fear you know scarcity take on your life right now so we but in a reasonable way and you've got community there. What does that look like just with friends and relationships? And how has that changed for you? It's changed a lot. We have a great community here because at the school that I work. There's about a hundred foreigners or so including you have families and kids. Most most of us are from the states during the first couple of weeks match of our community. I had left returnees New Year. Everybody goes on vacation. We didn't because a billion other people do so a lot of people were gone. And we're used to that. But eventually people started evacuating and we knew from the get-go that we didn't want to evacuate that we wanted to stay because this is our home and so that community dwindled down to five plus kids five adults plus if you extra people that are in our extended community will call him about eight of US foreigners that live in this complex where I live and so we have a new community. Okay so now. Let's talk about the day to day. Now how long have you been in lockdown? So we've been in quarantine and that's when the city shut down everything that started January twenty third. We've been in lock down locked into our apartment complex since February seventeen. Wow okay. How big is your complex? Just give us a picture of that. Like what is that. Look like for you. It's good really huge. Is Probably Ten thousand people that live in this complex and it spans city block. So it's a it's a big space. I mean we're in a thirty three story building. We live on the twenty fifth floor. So there's a lot of people here people on top people. Three generations often living in one apartment so their space to roam in our complex between the buildings. And that's been helpful because we are not physically locked in our building. Wow Okay let's talk about just You have a son and so you've been home schooling and let's talk about what that's been like. You've been doing that for a little while now. You guys have teaching in your in your family. So that's probably a little helpful. Homeschooling my nightmare. I'm not kidding okay. So my husband is a professional teacher. He helps other teachers teach. He's been doing this seventeen years. I can tell you. This has been the most challenging part all of quarantine. You keep me at my house. You can limit my food. I'm fine but break the student homemade guns each word very difficult. It's just a different ballgame a This hope if you're a parent you're doing his. Give yourself some grace because the first two weeks were very very difficult. I don't know what I'm doing but my husband he does and it was very difficult. After that point I think must send resigned to the fact that teachers not coming here anytime soon. And he's not gonNA be able to go back to school so we better make this work. We did and we learned to say win. And I've told the teachers like last week. I was doing one lesson. He didn't understand it not understand on the Mike. We're done and a rotor message and I said we have. We have met our limit. I can't do this. You know. And they understand because nobody asked for this and this is a whole different ballgame. And we're not. I'm not a trained teacher. I don't know how to do classroom management on child so so talk about now I mean. Are you all getting more? Freedom is this is opening up a little bit. What does it look like now? Yeah they've actually given us a date so they get a date. They publicized it in the national papers and April. Eighth is the day that the city of Wuhan will open a couple of weeks ago essential personnel. Were going back to work. So there's traffic on the streets now. We still cannot leave but some people have been gradually getting released in getting special passes to go. Let's talk about your perspective because a lot of us came across a facebook post you wrote and it kind of gave. Here's the good things and it gave us all a little bit of hope. Is You know it felt like we were headed to `isolation? Let's talk about that perspective. And just what has that been like to fight for that with this much time having gone by and to really see the good you know. My husband challenged me to write that post about the good and I'm glad he did. We have been fine through this process. Because we've got our faith and I can not imagine not having these to hang in the middle of all this okay but it's much easier to report the locks on the doors and things like that and so when he challenged me write down all the good that's going on. It was a little bit of shock but once I sat down. I'm telling you I had to edit that post. Because there was so much more wanted to write we were forced just like American and the rest were. We were forced into this pause. Retold the stay in largely forced to stay in and it just may time Kinda standstill. And so that's been the most wonderful thing is knowing what even if I wanted to keep up the hectic pace at I used to. I can't and so it's made me cherish this man sitting across from me and my kid the rim just cherish them. We linger over breakfast. We read over reckless a look at him in the eyes of learning game the other day with them because I have time I didn't ask for this time and I would really prefer to be working because I'm just wired like I am not a homebody but I'm a homebody now because I have to be and God has blessed time not like it's perfect all the time because it sure is not but it is good because we just caught up in the busy of life. I've missed so much around me. My goodness nature. I could talk a long time about the good that I'm really very thankful that this has been forced on me because I appreciate live so much more. Let's talk about what the scariest part was for you like. When were you thinking to yourself? I want to get out. I I want to get back to the states like did that. Ever Cross your mind. And what brought that on the locks the locks on the doors they slowly putting them on a few buildings and then a few more in and they locked gates a lot. I would lose my mind at the thought of just being locked in my building. It's a small apartment. I mean we you know Asian quarters or not large. We'll just say that's when I thought I would lose it and I had a moment of crisis of I can do all things through Christ and at first. This is not this is not. I can't do this but I did. And it just. It's just a big big moment of crisis. Big Moment of fear. Yeah it did not last though because he was seized with Danny semi straight guy did. And we've done it and we've done it well because the virus really started there and there was so little known. Were you afraid of getting it? Were you afraid your son would get it. Was there ever that stage of fear. No not really. I mean it's not out to get you in. It's not a death sentence. We've got trusted friends. I'm not a medical professional. Not GonNa dispensed advice what we have trusted friends who are people who are way smarter than that. We talked to understand how the virus spreads were healthy. And we're smart with what we do and we do stay in. We don't get in the Public. So the virus really never was a concern. And although I don't know anybody personally who has had it here. I know of of others and I've heard so many recovery aces they get it. And then they take care of themselves and they isolate- isolated key so it doesn't get around but frankly no the viruses.

"To do it because as you know they're fans of his work the companies has a headquarters in new york so some of those reps came to forty acres we what guys to a couple of different ideas and they basically connected house with their production team over in italy right because it's common is based on italy yeah so talk guys they said yeah so we've never put the face of a human on our most games like actual person so it was kinda dope about that is that that particular project saw that the first time and we'll a human being being the face almo skin and it just happened to be the face of a black wow i thought that was kinda dope so yeah it is s. actually oh so it turned into more than just a note what almost game where the turn into like a really cool design piece said that almost kind of crazes own history onto itself it complements the film very well and it is a moment in time so that was a pretty fun project as adrian mitch i have the notebook it's still in the plastic because when he came oats limited edition i was like let me go ahead and get it like a collector's item because i don't know how much longer it'll be on sale what the demand cam will be like let me just get one so i haven't so i do have it i just haven't actually used it but to know that all those little tidbits are in their sticker there's and you know the joint agassi and all that stuff i'm gonna open it up i'm in check it out check it out next time maybe i'll take it before you get assigned all hey because it should be uh i think yours is numbered right yeah i think it's number yeah the first couple of thousand i think they ran like five thousand but i think the first two or three thousand one number so if you're in down you should just bring it you're gonna get a sign that make it better right that's why you gotta open got it got it do you know if there's plans to do like anymore of these in in spikes film series i'm sure i guess because you know i guess the thirty year is like a mouse on for almost anything in life right yeah i remember thirty and that was kinda fun but i guess i don't know what's the next film that's coming up on his thirtieth because i know eighty six he did she's gotta have it that'll be dealt but that's already happened that thirtieth anniversary has already happened all right let's let's so yeah eighty eight so it seems that the next thirty the of spike joint and maybe coming up is going to be probably mobile blue and then at some point you're gonna hit malcolm x. i'm thinking he's waiting for like his big thing yeah to do that maybe i don't know you know here's the thing i can tell you what spike is thinking because only right 'cause yeah you know he's just one of those brainiac kind of people i think the next one that come that's coming up with probably be mo better blues oh yeah it was great because i remember i i remember about i think thirtieth anniversary happen this year like in may or june or something because there was a block party about it yes i think the next one coming up because spike movie like every year in the nineties yeah he was a full while he was on a road between the late nineties late eighties to the nineties he was every year man that guy was cranking them out yep he had a new movie every year it was mo better blues jungle fever malcolm x. when it creek lynn glenn was on ninety four i remember that curriculum great rafer clockers girl six o'clock which girl six is really underrated i is because it is i think as well when i love the print soundtrack lasts a really underrated like spike joint is girl six get on the bus to i really enjoyed get on the bus for the girls get on the bus was excellent man yeah he did he got game in ninety eight summer sam was not enough yeah he was crying out bamboozle was two thousand wow man yeah he put him out man look if i mean you know i know some people on account of critique him on some of these latest work yeah yeah hey man you know he's giving a coach a lot so for that we gotta be grateful i mean with him right you probably wouldn't have you know cosby copying him school days creating different world not sure with which indirectly allowed a lot of us to more or less be influenced go to school you know and and spike spike went to morehouse i went to morehouse so i can't say anything bad it's it's in the code i can't i can't speak killed again i can't say can't say anything bad about spike that's that's the guest to code so catholic secret society that you just don't know who went to mourn talk to they say it and then when he said you just know it right that's true that's very true are certainly gotten i've gotten access to places that i know i shouldn't have gotten access to just by ending up finding out oh he wants more does glass glass all three like oh it's all water whatever so you never know works it works so we you look at the design field today and of course you're working not only in corporate america with what you're doing IBM but also just even this doc grassroots i don't want to call it protest art but like even like the art that you're like with spike and everything what do you think is like the most important skill that a designer needs to have these days doesn't that's that to be like a technical skill or anything but when you really think across both of those like that's a big range uh-huh what what skill do you think designer needs to possess i would sit on a fundamental level just understanding you know basically out in grits right if you just want to say just sure fundamentals right outside of that i was at work ethic because there are a lot of very talented people who did never show up right there good it could be like the best designer best photographer best producer doesn't matter whatever creative that may be they can be like top notches naturally talent but being just talented is just not enough right you just can't just rely on that because regardless of your talent the one thing clients would not tolerate his tardiness of light work because they're spending money and when somebody finally money me and they won't be on time or they wanna explanation of why something is not gonna shit when you say it was not going to write but just outrageous not having a work ethic ads just don't think that's gonna work because you know you know thinking about like the design field now there are a lot of different types of groups of people entering right he's pretty diverse as ever been because you know technically for like the last okay is this a hundred years wanna look at it like that is predominantly white mill driven you know feel it is more and more people moving into it you know steph definitely more black people and a lot of people from the far east a moving into a definitely if you're talking about people from korea from china their people from japan like you know these guys are coming into the field and then what they're bringing a work ethic that most americans don't have yet right because you know these guys are just taught nick culturally get things done or do things better than you possibly can do the go way beyond like you know your own capabilities life like really stretch yourself because they're not just representing themselves they are representing the whole country and in some cases like you know places i s VA this and places like korea is sending kids to learn everything he can from the school of his arts and brain and now it's back to the country right and it paying for that so you got us coming into this field competing against that right so you compete against you know individuals who've been sponsored by entire countries and whose work ethic is like note has no failure you gotta get it done that's just the way gotta be and you probably didn't want a bunch of talented people so yeah phil i you know having a work ethic is vitally important man you know if you gotta stay up late get something donald get up early or you know get do whatever face to get the job done sometimes you gotta cheat you just is what it is yeah belongs to get the job done i don't consider that cheating is called i got the job done you know so yeah work ethic israel man and you know is different from one person to the next everybody have different modes of operation different ways of working you know but definitely having that were they i feel like any designer nowadays have to have that because i say is right because some of our design talent or design skill set as be real is going to get automated machine is going to be able to design apps in a few minutes just as it because as patterns right some he got like you know they can actually take good photography or create really beautiful photography literally out of pixels of a person who don't even exist yeah oh deep fakes yeah yeah man so you got this AI thing that's not just automating just taxi drivers and like people delivering whatever with drones or whatever but it's this sense of automation is coming to the creative field as well and i just feel like having a great compelling idea is not going to be enough you're gonna have to have a work ethic that basically show people that you you bring value yeah i mean even as funny you mentioned that about the AI like they've even been putting little drips and drabs of it in photoshop yeah like photoshop has this content aware fill i've used that so many times basically will like say you've got an image that you wanna put on like a along landscape kind of thing if the image takes up maybe i don't know seventy eighty percent of that you can inverse select the other thirty and do content aware fill and photoshop will look at the pixels in the main image and fill in the rest and sometimes it is seem like if he is a single color it can be seamless yeah i've seen it like continue brick walls brancheau trees it's donning with us it used to like us like the magic lasso to clones dan all that stuff pain to get detail now it's like a couple of gesture swipes boom got all of that so yeah i just think you know a is real and it's here i do think this about AI right like everybody's talking about with these jobs but if he does automate if a becomes a problem when it comes to automation i think the one thing that's going to curve it is well when you kill a job killing tax payer so i think municipalities may get involved with it because you know why accompany me oughta meet a lot of their workforce and this isn't the new automation was round even doing industrial h but if you automate a full factory or in the case of some of these white collar jobs or whatever job that is like even mcdonalds you know that's one person now nat paying taxes and you don't pay taxes to your local municipalities schools can get funded your rose can get build bridges can't get repair you can't employees you know fireman's or policemen's or whomever or EMS so that i just feel like society is gonna check a whole lot of automation because at the end of the day people say gotta live and people still gotta provide and and see these guys make money you can't make money off of bought the company pay for that what do you think kinda helps fuel your ambitions as a forty two year old man i will say at this point was fueling my ambition this is my son you know i i think he's giving me a whole another reason to just be on this planet right like you know i love living by so really the motivating reason to light wants to healthy want to see him graduate see him going to become a father himself or if you don't want to become a father this thrives human being right like you know whatever he decided he wanted to be kinda like whoever he wanted love wherever he wants to whatever you want in life i don't care like i'm just going to be i just wanna see him be him right and you know i know for me that's like my newest motivator right so just want to make a better future for kids like him hopefully you know using design we can solve some problems right i don't know we can off racism but maybe solve systemic racism i mean we can solve a lot of things around creating jobs for these kids because certain jobs probably won't be there by the time they're my age right or just of age so yeah man that's that's motivating thing now is like happen the future for young generations that's it he used to be i want to get all their wars wanna do these campaigns billy's absolutely that stuff is cool but you know that's not legacy right that's cool but it's not really going to impact society in my opinion so i'll failure you know using my talent to make a better future for young people and he definitely on designers i think that's like my next my next venture my next adventure he does a creative they're reminds me of interview i did i think this was like near the end of twenty seventeen or so but it was with john jennings whose author illustrator he did the he did the graphic novel of kindred from octavia butler okay in key also is doing now currently parable of the sower but she is a new dad as well and he talked about it as like embarking on the most important design project he's ever been a part of yeah like how do you design an experience for human being it's like the system of decisions that you know it the way that he talked about it just like blew my mind but yeah it's true 'cause you know how do you okay in case in point right like if how do you educate a young black child in twenty nineteen post obama era right 'cause you don't want them learning everything from like indoctrination that we had to deal with like taken up pledging allegiance to using sandia national anthem that never had you in mind all we till i.

"Abia and he introduces us to charlie in there you go wow i respect the charlie come on the show i don't know if he got back to me or not i got a double check my records about small group that was designing web pages for those guys but i can get into the groups i'm like well i'm gonna leave you know i stayed up for five years initially but i left to go work for a dot com call out lip and to your point all the things just mentioned in terms of cascade style sheets and designed with tables and whatever you know this is obviously long before any kind of response web was even thought of you know we we're doing things in dream weaver writing chopping things up mainly we were doing that yeah we were doing that lots of slices and yeah leaving notes so if another designer picked up they could go right from where you stopped building the days real thought he was signed on and so like you you also held were agencies in atlanta i'm like i mentioned twenty two squared you shock there you've just some work with courtney counts over GTM yeah low cordy him yeah yeah i i used to love that love GTO man with those guys around which is cool dudes man courtney kimball carl darius sean i i do all those guys those guys was just islamic DTM was really really cool yeah it really was i now it's like a juice shop i think yeah they broke it up man i mean they had a good rhino on those guys like what like fifteen years and years yeah that's a long time to be an independent design independent marketing agency firm working on accounts like truth and doing stuff from mountain to like those guys with innovative man he also they did more than just you know market NPR they also held events you know he would do a concert they would do the guerrilla marketing stuff to guerrilla marketing out invested in like you know a pair aligned with wheat bread life with a few green okay some of the earliest shirts audits appear one the spell show so now those guys man is fine i just feel like you know what's going on with agencies right now they are those guys are already doing that back then he was just being more than just a ad agency these guys having lifestyle you know multiple avenues but you know sometimes you could be ahead of time and sometimes you can just be behind you know just very rare that people can be right on time at a time and he's really really really deep even at work i worked on with those guys and creative was very cool workman and even now you know you're in you're in brooklyn like what is it like there now for you as a designer and how was it different from when you were in atlanta well you know i've been in new york nine eleven years and i truthfully say that you know why atlanta created me i did a dig a chance to learn a lot about you know agencies here in new york right like you know i mean before i came to new york i worked at benaroya holders uneven twenty two square so that was definitely you know major ad agency's but the sea so what the the ad like coach or advertising coaches started the genesis here in new york to work and thrive in the agency here it is fan experience but i will say that the things that i learned here is that new york is the place where like it won't get in the way of what you wanna do is like i cool you want betas go right ahead we're not gonna stop you but unless you don't we not actually gonna pay no attention either so being here you're going to run across a lot of different types of people run across a lot of like really good talented people and really bullshit creatives and sometimes you can't tell the difference between the two right because his new york everybody's his kidney grinding hustle right you know a little bit more guarded when it comes down to like you know engaging like a creative team right as very tribal in most instances so yeah i've learned that you know being creative here you catch a tee pretty quickly you definitely gonna understand how things work fairly quickly could things move quake sometimes the turnaround can be very harsh you know they you know sometime ah in most cases agency they account here like certain groups of hebron the creative department of this guy like they was here today and gone by the end of the day because yeah they got word that the loss account right so you know they need to change quickly here man the one thing i was kinda shocked though is how are behind new york agency were world is when it comes down to like technology like i'm failing new york eighties really just kinda catching up because i love it you know it's weird if you start looking at new york agencies almost like hip hop right like he'll pop started here advertising started here pop went somewhere else and became some different advertising the same thing and went to minnesota became fallon went out to LA became TB we a day went to boston and became mullen no you know it it became something different different parts of the country right yeah but it actually moving to different parts of the country it had to innovate and i feel like a lot of your agencies more or less state more or less the same because legacy mentality kalaheo right like hip hop in really evolve in new york until maybe like if you start thinking my light dame dash in hove doing thing with you know rock nation i mean rockefeller records or even daily was doing late nineties right but for the most hip hop in new york was more or less the boom bob right and i feel like now hip hop is inspired by a lot of southern rap so the same thing with agencies as being inspired a lot of other agencies that historically from new york so yeah i'm just kinda surprised how far behind a lot of the cultural aids he's here or even just the general marketing kind of lagging behind he was still in the traditional manner of producing campaigns TV print and radio and now he's trying to incubate technology and look at design thinking and incorporate that into their workflows and looking how to create products as opposed to just you know sell them house for other clients or really becoming more like a lifestyle you can see as opposed as you know old school madison at agency so that's the one thing i've noticed here he's lies eleven years how you know things have changed drastically these last five years but initially yeah advertising it was still pretty far hi my opinion very late to adapt to the web yeah when did you start doing design work with spike lee oh wow so that's a good question is what twenty nineteen ironically a month before i started working at IBM that's the weird thing right like you know as i see these things in my life sometimes it just kinda happened out of the blue and is always like having light twos or threes lately too big two or three major things happen all at once in time so me taking the job at IBM you know i started doing some things with spike unfortunately is because of some things i posted on instagram due to the untimely death of eric garner i'll put up this image of his prompt pitcher what seemed to be his prom pitcher and i gave it this poster is almost like cuban propaganda posted look yeah to kinda remind people that hey this is a human being right so the goal was to more or less react to what was going on in the world in a digital manner so normally i would want to paint something like kinda create like a handcraft the piece but unfortunately with technology especially in social media things move really really quick yeah oh i found it immensely eric i gave it like this really cool poster is treatment with the his foreground being in black the background being in blue in the lettering is like in yet owing white and also calls for the NYPD new york police department here right so i just kinda create his this graphic that basically i can't breathe just really you know just reminding people of who this person is and what happened so long story short i posted online you know literally the date find out what happened with eric garner on youtube which was kind of weird to see somebody die online right posted online you know occasionally i just be tagging people you know because you tax people you really don't painting attention i could never find that i mean i got like wet time five hundred dollars i don't even trip about that but that's what it was mhm so long story short like a day or two later i get this weird reply from spike lee my hell up this real spike lee he asked me a it's a spike like i don't know who he is could i re post this on my instagram i'm like sure okay and he he sure he took damage he repulsed it in and that kind of began our relationship doing work together he wanted me he found i was from atlanta then we just started creating like a bunch of cool imagery unfortunately around late tamir rice mike brown a you know easier orden you know a bunch of other you know fortunately a lot of people who was killed at the hands of police brutality the kind of began that whole series that i call suspicious prism and that we basically took a lot of those poster is looking tree the imagery and create a memorial at forty acres and in that term into us just doing other work together so you know working on stuff fourche iraq or even working on you know movie posters for michael jackson in his block parties yeah just more or less been rocking with him for five years because of the one thing that happened on instagram yeah and i've seen the ones that you have in the series i i know the eric garner when you spoke about is one with michael brown there's one with john crawford and i think that i mentioned this again before we were regarding the last time i was in new york in may me and a friend went to the restaurant that's right next to forty acres and we'll move the malays i was off i saw and it was like i know the image from software so yeah you even worked on a on a custom most skin was spike right yeah yeah i saw that we get it just you know spike hitting you randomly via tex-mex call uh-huh and he got his idea i wonder if you like so can you design a mole skin and i'm like well you know just going back with jerry told me like yeah can design a most gadgets guy get the specs yes designing the most games like designing a book so it's not super hard yeah he yeah we long story short with that project spike was coming up on the thirtieth anniversary of he's gotta have it and this is back in two thousand sixteen 'cause the movie matt eighty six so yeah he wanted to design a most candidates celebrated the movie but also pay homage to his mom that's why you probably take the most candidates in future aka pink record i was his mom's favorite color okay okay yeah so you know when that movie came out you know you know his mom had passed away eighteen years prior to that so i don't know fully why he wanted to make paint but obviously it was in memory in remembers his mom but the goal of that most gain was to kind of remind people of well this is spike is if you have opened another that's why i say you should take it out the plastic UCLA his all the different movies that he produces he has it has like a credit inside of the most games almost like a in credit as i would want to treat the most game like when you open it up you see this beautiful amazon nola he mars co two iconic you know kansas on a film and you get like the credits of all the people who have made the film and where he all his his joint tiger fee right which is all the different fans at the time it hit you know basic created but also you get some stickers mars and nola and appease please baby please phrase so it's kinda cool right okay as well as this is this is where it gets kind of funding so most wanted.

"This week's interview i'm talking with artists and creative director adrian franks let's start the show all right so tell us you are and what you do you do marie my name is adrian franks currently i'm a US creative director at IBM interactive experiences the division of ibm that mostly deal with of creating design and digital experiences for different types of clients in house agency potter consultancy so this is one thing i do but you know that's kind of like my bruce wayne job but my batman job will be that you know i'm out here in east eight design streets basically creating experiences anything from like film posters designs and tyler graphics to like you know app designs that more or less connect brown and diverse creatives to clients in the form of a marketplace culpepper so yeah you know and cadad- so i think that's like the big time to have right besides being a designing a creative and i'm a dead animal husband okay to nicole and garvey smile signs ni nice so i wanna get more into into all of that i i wanna start off just more about the work that you're doing at an IBM can you kind of walk me through what a normal day is like for you are you sure so if you think about IBM historically news the company has been around a hundred years right i mean you know these guys have the created things such as like the security system that we currently all use shout equifax i guess all the way till i some of the semiconductor ed was using a lot of the you know computers that we use you know ten years ago right but now they're more of a software company so these guys are really all about shing like cognitive different types of light AI differently like everything like enterprise design and different types of digital and technical services uh-huh to division i'm a part which is part of GPS global business services i xe where more like a group of designers you x. researchers of creatives and strategists and production guys who more or less help a lot of what we call it a partners and at various types of GPS leads to engage bryant almost in the same form as a as a agency but instead of us like you know approaching these guys are like campaign that will you know more or less sell a product or service these were there they have helped more or less business transformed from the business perspective using digital and using like strategy so a guy like me would more or less t. mobile strategist or you x. person or another young designer and we would more or less have a partner to reinvent help a client rian event whatever type of digital transformation looking for anything from like redesigning apps or creating like an enterprise approach for some of their services or products all we down to like these guys reimagined what their business can be from a digital perspective so yeah a lot of times i might be sketched i might be like oh keynote on my actually prototype like an example of something that can work for like a kiosk example like i helped redesign kiosks at a jet blue is one of my projects so yeah we do a lot of different things that are more you know business oriented and not necessarily campaign but sometimes we may do some marketing work too but it's rowsley digital transformation using what we call design thinking and experiencing design and what attracted you to IBM i know you said they're doing a lot of or they've done a lot of the things in the past but what specifically made you want to lend your talent to them oddly enough i never imagined myself being IBM to be honest i went to see oof advertising design right i want to be creative director so i pursued that flight you know obviously the first fifteen eighteen years of my career but a friend of mine who we more or less kind of you know you know connected through freelance work here in the tri-state area out in new jersey she based siklie took a job at ibm and you know from my understanding you know her spill was like well IBM's reinvesting bringing in more designers again they can't stop using designers from a long time ago you know the last time they actually had designers working with the company was like charles eames and elliott no as any in light you know paul rand who -ironically create a logo so that was like the last time big blue you know that's the nickname IBM actually use designers but being dead now more of a software company less hardware we know that design thinking and design leaders designed type talent kamal it's helped drive hottest software can be used to experience point of view so to really make this you know long story pretty short these guys really need more talent that knew how to tell stories right at the end of the day they can tell a story it can be visual they could give it some kind of context can grind on exit strategy or more or less you know selling experience or client as opposed to hear the take that you're going to buy here's how to use technology in terms of targeting users so that's how i ended up there because you know they need it more nine talent and yes he kinda gave me offer can refuse and i'm like well at least try and see what happened in i've been there now at least five years nice what's been the the biggest challenge for you so far with what you're doing i will say the biggest challenge is that well you know IBM is one hundred year old company like i mentioned so a lot of times they deal with other companies as more or less like them right so that you know some of the clientele would be like these big insurance companies government agencies do you know companies have been around a long time and if you know anything about like you know big companies like that you know those guys very slow to change so convince these companies that you know if you don't disrupt yourself while some smaller nimble more agile companies come right along and potentially disrupt anti-business now you can be one or two things you can either jump in front of that change or disruption or you can potentially acquired that company but you know sometimes incompetence like that it just kind of swallowed up into the current company the big company and nothing really changes right so that's always not the best strategy as well so the biggest issues that i've noticed being big blue is that it is trying to get convince ali's bigger companies you know why they should change and housing ads bottom line is going to give them like some type of return investment and this idea that you know by changing a bunch of things now invested in like new technologies and news designed systems and new design practices is going to save you money in the long term and even sometimes the immediate short term but yes sometimes that can be challenging sleeping with like CMO's CMO's of this there for a short period of time in the onto the next job 'cause they won't technology to work now and trying to take analogy a minute that just kind of you know work properly yeah i mean not even working properly but also just like get the adoption rate up you know trek correct keno again people companies a full of people and people you know overall people say like change what people don't like change you're apprehensive to change right yeah i know designers we always trying to change the way that people do a reinvent something right and you know we run up against that wall of people who's at verse to what we're trying to create so yeah you know is ultimately dealing with clients dealing with you know people don't wanna change and i get it does sometimes changing something on the climb here means that somebody got lose some money somebody's gotta invest in this and i lose money here i don't look great if i don't look great the get fired in AP family to take care of so you know it's a it's a domino effect of a lot of things that we sometimes don't understand that you know changes changes a client saying notice something is on you know a bunch of things that we have to consider like other variables or whatever so that's the big thing now you mentioned design thinking how do you generally end up approaching projects at IBM in the i x division is kind of a similar process everything more or less yes you know sometimes clients meena always buy into the idea of using design thing it's a framework to change a business or assess like you know how do we engage the user base or whatever but what we try to do is adapted so is not so cumbersome right because you know design thinking as a framework is pretty massive is scalable oh and his it can be pretty big but i think a lot of times we're we've now have learned to break it apart and used parts of design thinking specifically solve a problem for a company at that moment 'cause sometimes accompanies not trying to transform themselves they just need a saw one small problem right and maybe design thinking what we know it i've used citing parts of design thinking it can solve specific problems once you saw that problem what usually happens is a climate allies will oh being and i saw this problem it's attached to this other problem which is tasked to more problems which is attached to five of the problems which now maybe everything this approach and maybe used the full gamut of like design thinking but a lot of times you just kinda have to get the conversation going and just saw that one small problem i yeah so that's how more or less obscene designed thinking being used big blue and of course you know big blue is now like the company that invented it you know anybody who's a designer like a product designer some type of you know industrial designer they've been using like this the methodologies of design thinking for like ever and i know audio and like i think the the business school at stanford was like the the two most recent entities that basically made design thinking kind of popular and then on you know IBM will adapted that framework and made it his own and now before IBM i know you've worked at a number of different ad agencies either as director as a creative director work the digital all status greg world grew up global hugh your homework twenty two square down here in atlanta yeah i i won't go into each one of those but when you look back at that agency time like what really stands out to you during that time well i can truly say what agency versus what we call in design consultancy agency do get at the reason why people do things right because at the end of the day where narrative driven creatures so agencies a they do a great job at telling the story i think consultancies do a good job at trying to solve a business problem right now if you can have a place that can more or less due to both then you know now you got what you call it a you know a creative unicorn and i think what i've tried to become his that person who understands like how to tell a good story as well as hot historic insolvable problem so the things i've learned that the agency is that i've learned how to really tell a good compelling creative story and what i've learned at you know at a working at places like a censure and even like digitize and even like you know obviously here IBM is that a story and put it in the form of like like a user store and use the story they're going to need to solve a problem is in you know triggers and with things that ultimately can be solved for like a user and put it in the story form is like it's a beautiful thing so i just think thank you know having being in both of those worlds i've seen how those two methods of replying together can be very powerful thing now let's switch gears here a little bit because i really wanna learn more about your background and certainly what what has brought you to where you are now where did you grow up arrays atlanta georgia all right baby grady baby was design and art and everything kind of like a big part of your growing up our say being a just a artistic being a part of a big part of my growing up right like my parents they allowed me to more or less kind of conway right like it was my dad kind of figured that i was kinda gonna be like artists and it was my mom who really supported that right so she's the one that basic lee give me a lot of classes as a kid enrolled me i like a lot of like screen printing classes drawing classes you know like the atlanta college announced take this path of being a creative in artists at a very young age the age of eight right so growing up in atlanta i will say that the one thing that academy creativity kinda sticky for me and just kind of find was the music scene so design as a coach i wouldn't say was big in atlanta but it was definitely present and unfortunately most of the time it was people who didn't like me he was more people either you know mostly white right so if you want it to be more of a designer than you would have to kind of venture into that world but if he just wanted just full on just creative fluid individual i you know atlanta was always plays that you know a lot of creative black people just excellent black excellence type by people would just be their rice i got a lot of creativity manages being in the city of atlanta so going to things like the malcolm x. festival as a kid checking out things in the west and looking at my grandparent's within attains definitely checking out phone jazz cafe when i was in college oh man yeah that's bad right and it was the name of that i've showed at the hip hop show american rap makers you know watching all those different things as a kid you know really few my creativity and drawing from comic books like that was kinda cool but again that's a create a side but the design side yeah i kind of have to victory into you know uncharted water so you know go on to like the hellenic college are learning screen printing and understanding who was dealers ram in paul ran milton glaser and louis feely and even meeting like black designers like charlie palmer and his wife at the time there taylor you know that was a.
"franks" Discussed on Rock N Roll Archaeology
"You know franks political philosophy i've heard the term constitutional fundamentalist i is that is that a fair assessment and and what what do you think that meant i mean we we know frank testified in front of congress during the pm marcy hearings did a fabulous job and and then try to help get you know the youth to actually pay attention to what's going on in use their franchise to to make a difference whether it did or not we we can debate that so to two part question is is what does konta constitutional fundamentalist what did that mean to frank and to what do you think he would think of today's political situation i'm gonna let joe go go go there don't don't go me there well yeah don't take me there because i'm not the person to talk about that subject i think that what if i get you to take your pants off oh i see where this is going now sudden i'm part of the party yeah promises making oh my god you know i've pound me to bro so i think the first part of your question and i'm i definitely don't have my father's political mind and i cannot speak eloquently as he certainly always did but my sense of you know what it was like growing up in our household and certainly when he was talking about running for president and frank zappa for president i mean those moments he he he was always taping c span we had to install giant satellite dish on the back when they were big giant hugh and and this was such a big deal and it was only for frank to be able to record so that he was not missing out on what what was happening politically right so so we could tune into all the different revenge jellicoe christian channels as well as you know any news network it was such a big deal to him and gal to answering the question but i'm just gonna set the climate for how i'm answering the question so you know frank at one point larry flint asked him to be his running mate and so early on you know when you're a kid i was like nine and this was the nine or ten this is the franks got shorter hair and he looks sort of respectable eight was kind of getting into this different elderly statesman political guy you know he's still making tons of music but you know at home you know with reagan as the president and you know he wrote so many songs that you know going living through the nixon era you know you could see how his music reflected his politics and the point he was trying to get across or just really kind of highlighting the hypocrisy of things and certainly what was you know the things were happening that were just devastating you know like have you listened to trouble every day you know that's such a shows you what he cared about very early on how he used music to talk about you know events but which which i believe was about the watts riot yeah so you know here here we have this this guy who's i think looking at the constitution and saying leg they didn't fuck that up they got that pretty good you know so for him he's like don't don't fuck with something that isn't broken right you know and the liberties that people were taking the assumptions and when you look at it from evangelical christian point of view in serving organized religion into thing or supreme court justice antonin scalia at the time who hauls himself constitutional fundamentalist you know there's i think that's what he's really rallying against is the excesses of the interpretations that were causing some to keep themselves in power instead of moving the country forward yeah i mean i grew up thinking that we were you know very democratic family right middle of the road right i mean we were my personal values i'm definitely more democratic than than you know.
