Hasbro vs Mattel - Boy Toy | 2
Itâ€™s the 1960s and Hasbro is struggling. The pencil manufacturer turned toymaker hasnâ€™t had a major success since Mr. Potato Head hit the shelves in 1952, and itâ€™s starting to lose money. If the company doesnâ€™t act fast, itâ€™ll be headed for bankruptcy in no time. Mattelâ€™s â€œaccessories sold separatelyâ€ approach to Barbie has revolutionized the industry. Now Hasbroâ€™s toymakers hope to replicate her success with a doll of their ownâ€”for boys. But first, theyâ€™ll have to get the green light from CEO Merrill Hassenfeld, who has one iron-clad rule about new toys: no dolls. Meanwhile, Mattelâ€™s about to roll out a hot new boy-themed toy of its own that will cement the companyâ€™s status as the worldâ€™s top toymaker.You can find new episodes of Business Wars, completely ad-free, only on Stitcher Premium.

Tim Heidecker with Hayden Pedigo
The brilliant composer and two-time Talkhouse Podcast guest William Basinski recently dropped me an intriguing email. He wrote of a â€œvery talented young friend, a fine guitarist from Amarilloâ€ who has â€œa great story.â€ If Billy recommends an artist, I look into them; the more I learned about this guitarist from Amarillo, TX â€” Hayden Pedigo â€” the more fascinated I became. A born and raised Amarilloan, Hayden is an ambient acoustic guitarist and soundscape composer who's written music dedicated to the landscape and beauty of his hometown. Changing artistic lanes late last year, Hayden undertook a satirical project inspired by Harmony Korine that was composed of a series of bizarre, Tim and Eric-esque fake campaign videos. When the vids went viral, he decided to run for City Council in Amarillo in earnest, and is now a leading contender with a real shot at being elected. With his gonzo comedic approach and dual life in music, we thought that a convo between Hayden and Tim Heidecker â€” who's fresh off the release of Us â€” would make for a quite a show. Talkhouse pals Nick Dawson (EIC, Film) and Josh Modell (Executive Editor, Music) join me to introduce this politically-minded conversation between two great weirdos.
