Alabama can afford people not coming to games. Lsu could afford people not come into games because of their T. deals and BCS MONEY. So the trying to figure this out if you're running a university and you're going to say we want our football team to come back. When can you come back? When when can you provide the safeguards? Let's say you're saying to the parents of these players. How do I know they're they're safe is?

They didn't do close Federal Express company that I consider to be the single best barometer for worldwide trade missed its top and bottom line numbers, citing worldwide trade something it's surely won't get better. Brexit goes hard and the China talks fail. So I'm not save a whole move up on the past few days, which took a pause today. It's justified their ports that makes sense imports. That do we know the markets. Still cares. Passionate federal serve stays on. Hold which I expect to be the case when the fed makes a statement tomorrow. And again, a breakdown in the. Chinese trade talks is a real possibility. And that does frighten the bulls. I think they stay frightened or something happens. We know that today's whisper story about Chinese and changes was demonstrable negative for almost all stocks across the board. But the bottom line as long as we don't have to fight the fed, and we have some hope of a deal with China. I guess market more about a leap of taste, not a leap of faith.

"This is the first in which I Helen Zeman deliver a present down languages chimney is that's not creepy. Coming up in today's show is a heartwarming festive story, but the full that need to chat with you about money awkward. It's radio Tokyo's annual fundraiser during which you listeners count become supporters of this collective podcast own snacks exclusive gifts from challenge coins and keyrings to life advice from the memory palace and audio production help from criminal and radio diaries, great gifts. But the greatest gift of all is the knowledge that banks to you all of our shows can keep afloat. None of us are operating with huge budgets all pretty streamlined operations. For instance, illusionist is essentially a team of one your money goes straight to making more of the shows that you like it's not all about cash, though, another way to support the show is to recommend it to a friend that too. Two is enormously helpful, but if you can afford to throw a bit of money at this show and the rest of the radio collective to radio. Tokyo dot FM. Also, if you are in on this, I'm Francisco pay attention. Now, the illusion is returning to SF sketch vest in two thousand nineteen with an all new live show, you some Francisco with the first people to see this year's live show. And again, you will be the first to see the new one, which is a piece of work. I'm very excited about most trying to do something different. The live stuff and challenging cylinder of eductaion. -ment? The show is seven thirty pm on Friday, the twentieth of January and the Bravo fitted and tickets on sale now linked them at the allusion dot org on with the show. To be honest. These letters have been coming in as long as I lived in that Chelsea apartment, and even before that the gentleman that live before us had been getting the letters only about four or five, and then they told me that the guys before them had been getting the letters. This is Jim glob he and his husband Dylan Parker were living in an apartment on west twenty second street in Manhattan and every year these letters would arrive that addressed to center and not by accident the letters with clearly intended to be delivered to that apartment. It's this particular address even the apartment number apartment over seven. So it's like very very specific which is strange, but it didn't register as strange for the first few years if you're on the getting four or five letters to Santa you'd be like, I'm not thinking about this either. But then in two thousand ten the letters had come in one by one at the beginning as they normally do. But then. Twenty four coming week and more thirty forty. Fifty in the weeks leading up to Christmas twenty ten Jim Dillon received almost four hundred letters to dissenter. Attention must be paid. You were getting so many letters that you can't ignore it. And it had started to weigh on us what to do with this. The letter writers weren't asking for new iphones or a racehorse or spac are made of diamonds. Most of it is basic stuff like people who just need a coat or socks or basic things like shirts, and sweat, pants and pajamas and. It seems like there are a lot of moms who right in for their kids, obviously. But a lot of them are just trying to make ends meet and with a little help from someone else. They could provide basic needs. That's probably the biggest theme I've seen across the board. So then at that point I was on a mission. I was absolutely committed. Dedicated one hundred percent obligated to get these letters filled. Why do you think you felt such an obligation to respond to the letters? Well, it may have taken some therapy to get through that answer. I mean, I grew up really poor. And I'm in the fortunate position where I'm not anymore. You know, I read these letters, and I saw a lot of myself as a kid, and I felt I had an obligation to them because of that. And maybe because of my circumstances that I saw a lot of myself in them. And so. I if there was anything I could do to give back then it was to try to get those letters filled perhaps to be honest at the time. The Helen was like, I was a robot. I was just like get them build. So Jim and Dylan's sat about trying to respond to older requests in the letters. But they couldn't do it all by themselves doing I thrown a Christmas party who's like a holiday party bunch of our friends came. Of course, it was the height of men. So it was a nineteen sixties party. Specifically the year nineteen sixty two. Oh, it was so classic because it was like, you know, truly was right out of a movie like everybody is dressed up in the sixties playing classic Christmas music. You know, the whole apartments done up in the in the sixties. It's like Christmas. It's really fun. Everyone's having a blast. And then in that party. I'm like running around passing the letters. And everybody's like what is this? What's going on? Remember reading them with everybody and people are sort of passing their rounds or like what is going on here. Everybody was so overwhelmed by it. They were so over on by the story. They were overwhelmed by the actual letters and everybody did agreed to take a letter, and they would fulfil it the party guests couldn't handle all the letters. So Jim sought out more help is I was going into buildings in friends buildings and friends companies, and I was like bringing the stack letters, and I was like I remember going to like all the Broadway offices like the advertising agencies and all that like marketing companies and all the. Ticketing companies going door to door because they were friends, and I was like, please take a letter take a letter. And there was even a point where I think it was like a week before Christmas. I started to get really panicky because they still have so many letters left. That I was on the street, and I was asking strangers on the street, take letters. And that's when Dylan was I okay? This has gone too far.

"Experience, and how to make more of it how to build moral power to take collective action. Which at this point is the only thing we really have time for as an organization conceivable future throws house parties. Why has that been your choice response? I've been Clement organizer for years and years, and I always felt that the movement lacked heart, and it lacked some sort of connection to the human stakes, but the place where I was feeling this the most was in this questioning with myself about what's going to parents in what capacity how if when cetera. And so it was an entry point during second feminism. There was a trend in women's movement called consciousness-raising parties, and they were quite similar to what we do now. And it was just get people together put him in a room help from feel safe and see what happens right? Give people space to connect with each other to explore the breadth and the depth of their feelings on a certain topic. Try to do it in the most supportive way possible and see what emerges, but at the end of the day, whether I have a baby or not or whether high of six babies r zero babies or whether Josephine does like that nothing. I mean, nothing about the world is going to change profoundly. Based on that decision alone. Right. The things that profoundly changed systems are collectives of people either political or social or some combination economic pushing levers that need to be pushed on and so when we say that the point of this space is to help people come to terms with what that means. That's exactly what we mean. We don't have a horse in the race about whether people have children or not right? That is for us an opening to talk about what this means and how we can tackle the problems and tackle the issues. So at these house parties, people gather exchange ideas, and then they're invited to record the reflections for conceivable future to archive on its website. My name is Jim Dillon. Twenty seven years old. I really do what to have kids. I don't think I will have kids. They're kind of two big sort of ugly problems with having kids. Given the climate crisis in one is just that when you have a kid, you are contributing another engine for producing carbon into a world that has way too many of those already been there's also the problem that you don't want to think about your kid having to you know, bear witness to all the problems from you know. Natural devastation. Social problems and rest scarcity, and yeah, it sucks. It does suck. Despite mulling these questions over for the past four years. Josephine is undecided on whether she and her partner will have kids the window in which we can make meaningful action before we've broken the carbon budget is basically the same size as my reproductive window. Like, it never gets easier to think around while at the same time that like if I did have a kid that would be like the most energy-intensive demanding period of of parenting to have a toddler while this like the whole thing is like to complicate like to overwhelming and too heavy sometimes. So for me, I mean, I'm I'm lingering this sort of indecisive place. Environmental scientist Earl Ellis prefers to look towards the future optimistically..

"Who ensure that patients interbank the volume it maintains a safe zone? And when I mean by that is too much hydration is not good, obviously, that's not going to decongest a patient. Asian two months to two little is not good as well. So by maintaining interview volume will we can do is then we can therapeutically health that patient and decongest decongest them. You know, some interesting data just came out editions that I interact with all the time the question, No upon patient, discharge are these patients, really adequate adequately. Or ideally be congestion and invariably. The question comes back. No. And it's not by any fault or or lack of of goals or administrative therapies in the hospital bills. Just this balancing act that clinicians. The current situation is in the USA diabetics, so reprieve guided guided diabetic. Therapy will protect the interesting volume and be able to maintain and sustain in pursue more quickly a decongestion to this patient population. Which again is is enormous. And you know, we believe because of the simplicity of the system in the ease of use is certainly would be amenable to to be a frontline therapy. So how is this approach resonating with the with clinicians? It's it's really a been wholeheartedly endorse in Thomas as I said directs have been invented in nineteen sixty two you look at the continuum of care until really the far are right. There's some other very invasive measures. But you know, nothing is curative. And you know, we named it reprieve cardiovascular because these patients need a break. And and we believe that we're developing therapy. That can absolutely be controllable in affording them decongestion. We've worked very closely with key opinion leaders. Professor Pio product hausky who was past chair of the European society of cardiology heart. Failure guidelines committee has done extensive work with us semester. Fact he at present a day late breaking trial abstract at the ESE h f meeting in Vienna. This past may, and he as well as a cohort of very. A seasoned in berry, cutting edge heart theory, cardiologists continue to do a lot of work and the and not the encircling. We'll share that the before the year is out. We should be back odium. With the clinicians presenting further evidence in our development, and you know, heading to the mission of helping these patients. Excellent. Well, it's a couple of stories of there and. No, you're going to be busy at to TC T at least telling the the renal guards story or you're gonna be introducing reprieve there as well. Yeah. And depending on what light you hold my card in it'll show you to not. I'm just kidding. But but now we're rental guard focused at the at TC t-. But certainly, you know, it's such a broad meeting. What such a on compensating agenda there there? I would be remiss in saying that there certainly will be heart failure conversations occurring there there as well. But you know, it's it's a it's a great back to back, and, you know, our business our company in a world or a small stealth like organization, and the folks that I work alongside we were a lot of hats, and and you know, may seem drain, but you know, I was I was in Nashville breaking down the booth on Monday night and all the end San Diego putting off the booth on Friday morning. It's just it's a hands on Asian and go back to our introductory statements. I mean, some people thrive in some people crumble, and you know, if the you know to be successful in today's day and age is a star. Yup. And to raise capital you have to you got to be flexible. You gotta be focused in new gotta you've got a really do more with less. The thing. I will best of luck at TC gem in thanks for joining us in the podcast, Tom.

"But not to do too many number on that. But you know, again, I think there's a a number of data points that. That they're strong similarity both end strategy as well as technology. Interesting. And finally, your president CEO of a both renal garden and reprieve. How do you manage the two companies at the same time or the two efforts at the Santana, you how do you view this organization how they work together to you make sure both deep on track is it has challenging as as it might appear. Not you know, not necessarily. I mean, it's it's it's you know, had it's been a a dual role really since the day. I got here and heart failure. As I said, Tom was was number one. The list understand how are proprietary technology could transfer over end liver really formidable benefits to the heart failure patients that they've not received previous. And so it's it's it's a titles names things. I don't get mixed up in that. It's just know priority businesses that we out really directed. A majority of overlap in terms of our employee base. You know, part of what we've done in in. Developing launching reprieve, obviously with Dr Howard Levin's addition to be our chief medical officer and Howard being a heart failure cardiologists by trade is is set a a key asset we've made some also some he hires in Europe and terms of both commercially driving the rental guard business as well as clinically bribing the reprieve cardiovascular business, so you know, the businesses are separate in terms of focus. But again, I go back to the Helmand fluid management platform. And also if you look at how those businesses businesses are intertwined were very fortunate time to do the clinical work that we are right now with reprieve cardiovascular in Europe, all under our currency seamark all on our current label. So as you take a look and understand reprieve. You know it. Yes, it's a startup. And were were, you know, moving vigorously to develop a very innovative therapy to provide controllable. Decongestions therapy for patients, but we've been afforded a real a real benefit in the sense that it's all under current regulatory label in Europe as well as from a manufacturing scale standpoint, you know, with twenty thousand patients on the renal guard side, you can imagine the manufacturing expertise as well. As a safety profile about side of the business that relates directly transferable to. Developing and then iterating on the harshly or technology. So Jim what is the current situation? Now are these patients handled in how will reprieve improve on it gets on the Achille to compensated heart failure population is massive in a market opportunity exceeds certainly has a billion at the end of the at least a couple billion dollars in really in terms of the of therapy care a right now or the spectrum of care, you know, patients are admitted whether it be chronic or acute and then the goal is decongestion in really the only means of decongestion right now, come in a frontline therapy mode is direct therapy. And and direct therapy has simply given to the patient. And and basically makes the patient Pete and by urine production trying to decongest that patient, and and decreasing vascular volume. Dire. Dire. Arctic therapy was invented nineteen sixty two so to think of it as as anything being cutting edge. It it's helpful. It's useful. By the way. A lot of great things were graded nineteen sixty two. I won't I won't go down that road. But. Take a look at the aftermath of care and so patients the frequent flyers. They're in the hospital five six seven eight times a year be decongested and diuretics again are can be effective. But it's there's a lot of variability and unpredictability based on dotion dosage in timing. And if the patient is going to be is going to react. And and and and the deacon Justice some extent, and it was really cautioned, and and is very conservative in dosing diorite because they certainly don't want the patient to become dehydrated because you know, bad things happen in terms of dehydration, hypertension, and eventually end organ and renal renal failure or renal harm can occur. So the vision with reprieve is that our expertise in fluid management. You know, we can ensure we're developing system with diagnostic sensors integrated..
"jim dillon" Discussed on MedTech Talk Podcast
"So this is a long list of intriguing interest. But as a as a as a startup or as a business, obviously, having finite resources, you have to focus, and you have to prioritize and as as renal guard as I said Neo now having done twenty thousand cases, worldwide, you know, really the top of the list in terms of other applications was heart failure, and specifically the acutally compensated heart failure patient population. And so we had fast forwarded and invested quite a bit at time effort and resources over the last year in that area and made the strategic decision to launch just last week's heart failure society of America meeting, reprieve, Craiova asker, and what that does is it allows each. Businesses to focus on each of the therapies, certainly they commonality is the fluid management platform, but both technologies in certainly the reprieve guided on tyrod therapy, it's going to iterative very quickly. And and so we can I can speak more in detail to that in a couple of minutes, but it really made sense from a focus standpoint and made sense to divide the businesses from a call point standpoint their different in in really, Leslie, it affords investors a choice. And so the most recent seven race seven million. Both businesses are benefactors of that. And it a timing is terrific. And we really confident that you know, we've secured the funds to execute. You know, our our next credible. Milestones. So did the the the technology that reprieve is centered around that it just come from internal RND. Or was it something that you you in licensing? And if you could tell us a bit more about at Debbie, it'd be great. Yes. So you know, one of the initial steps we took a while ago. Was we took the off the shelf commercially available Rena guard system in Europe and rather than fluid balance because within the cath lab, and reducing contrast induced or frothy, it's critically important that we fluid balance, and and we do that in real time with matched hydration. And that recipe is one that we've been able to show demonstrate dramatic reductions in contrast induced frothy. So if you if you then go over to the heart failure side, you know, the Achille compensated heart failure patient. With massive fluid overload they account for ninety percent of of hospital admissions in the numbers are staggering in terms of both admissions hospital missions readmissions mortality, these patients need to be decongested. And so in theory, what we I embarked on was that what if we could design a system or make changes to the existing system that would put us in a position of the congesting or creating a net negative situation. So rather than fluid balanced, Tom, we can essentially give back less than the patient puts out interesting, and you had a. A new well was going into the round a bit more. You had a new investor come in abdomen as a lead investor that seven million. How did that come together you'd you'd work there previously as well to that relationship? Bring them into help bring them in his in investor. He I really enjoyed by years at abbey med leading US sales. And you know, certainly my familiarity in relationship with their executive team in Mike Minogue. You know was able to provide a forum where we could have some heart Dr discussions in. And you know, they they're wildly successful. I haven't they are, you know, Mike Minogue in his team of done. A just an amazing job since he got there in two thousand four of building that business, and they continue to be on a trajectory that second non so, you know, they're highly innovative highly successful, cardiac business heart failure business, and they actually further data. They do have definitely some interest and some research in in their technology, also reducing contrast induced property, you know, so there's a number of similarities in parallels. And you know, we're we're really thrilled that the F it having them have made the investment and MBA strategic partner. And if they invested in startups before they have, you know, I believe that the in terms of public disclosure. It's not a long list. I think they're frankly been very selective they've been focused on not only internal are in developmental projects. They've been focused on expanding their commercial footprint. I believe they just launched in in Japan over the last six or eight or nine months, but they've made some very select investments and what I mean by that is probably a good I could count on maybe not on both hands..

We certainly have plans to so we have made steady steadfast progress in our US pivotal trial. And you know, I'd like to be in a position in future quarters to talk more specifically about where we're at. But certainly the the goal in the end the vision for Reno guard is to be commercially available here in the US. We've learned a heck of a lot and really the unequipped action in Europe is most commonly assist state socio with physicians using it as a stated in tavern procedures a high risk of PCI's as well as CTO's and that obviously translates well over to market opportunity in anticipation. Early adoption once we have US presence rather. And prior to your joining the company had had raised fourteen and a half million for for a series where you you part of that financing at all or did you do come into a company that was that flush with cash, and you don't have to do the the farmers. Not answer your first question. I was not part of the fourteen raise. And and frankly, you know, we're we're we're a private company. So, but I'd like to thank him probably I'm safe in and stating the assumption that most startups not flush with cash. Before you have the more, you spend and. I think it's I can't can't really dig into or share much more of the details. But. But yeah, we we we, you know, companies are challenged with really sustaining an influx of capital, and and the role that I have the, you know, it's it's a daily activity. You know, we're very very fortunate to just close a around a seven million incredibly excited about having Abby Maviya strategic partner. And and we definitely have some really important milestones. In strategies earmarks with that the most recent seven million around. I wanna talk about that moment. Just so what was the what were the origin of the technologies of renal guard solutions where did that come from? It's it really happy to detail that in Reno Gary was the brainchild of Dr Howard Levin, and and his team at Carinthia, the background doctor Levin. He he not only invited him any not only sits as Archie medical. Officer of a doctor Levin is a heart failure cardiologist by trade. And years ago. He ran the vad unit Tripler assistive ice unit at Columbia in New York City in about twenty years ago. He and gentlemen by the Mark L fan. Started a technology incubator, Paul Kariya and Carinthia. City-based and they they are fantasy store with n specifically. Howard Levin is really a a a real rare. Find what I mean by that time is he's not only a brilliant goal clinician. But he's also an incredibly passionate entrepreneur. And you know, his is drive in his street smarts in his, you know, just kind of clinical insights in my opinion rival a lot of the folks who had worked with them. Whether it be Dr Simpson, or whether it be, you know, folks, I work with a heart technology. It really is a rare find so Carinthia gave birth to renovate. They actually actually developed hardy as well, which we know is a Herridge exit and acquired by by Medtronic. But Howard really was the was the inventor putting it on the map and. And within his role if she'd medical officer, you know, it's a he's a daily asset to the business president going forward. Right. It's a great pedigree. Let's get into the news of the day. The the fun Lee round raise you mentioned earlier. Now that's actually four a new company, reprieve, cardiovascular, correct? It's actually both businesses are the benefactor of the raise. So, you know, our our platform really in a nutshell is focused on on cardio renal syndrome. You know, it's focused on on both organs, and by definition cardio renal syndrome, you know, one one dysfunction with one Oregon can affect the other in. And so the path that Reno guard was on was obviously trying to decrease contrast induced in the frothy to afford safer, cardiac care, and and so there's a myriad of applications for fluid management, and they stemmed from you know, trying to think about the surgical application. There's really high incidence of acute kidney injury in cardiac surgery and other search obligations clinicians out talked to us about you know, what about the the theme of care pubic area in college..

"String of opportunities. So how difficult was the transition from from sales to business development is is it a different skill set to take some adjustment, you know, and not necessarily. I mean, I, you know, if you think about the businesses I've been in whether they'd been primarily startup or larger parent companies, I mean at the end of the day, you can stroke my title away, and really all carrying the bag. You know, being a sales guy at heart and business development that entailed a host of of you know, activities and and and focal points on one was certainly the integration of the perk. Los businessman had bought Burke, lows to be the cornerstone of their device franchise and out at had been really farm entity in this really there. I, you know, putting a toe in the water significant one terms of acquisition of. Six hundred and eighty four million dollars. But you know, really developing core of that corner show cornerstone franchise, and so it had some truisms in terms of what you think about business development, but it was also about strategic development in the integration of new that new cornerstone business and understanding how to leverage that proprietary technology within the existing portfolio, Abbott. Let's bring things up to up to today you joined a renal guard solutions last year as presidency. Oh, this is your first stint is as presidency you. That's that's correct. Corrective had been fortunate to have a host of commercial leadership opportunities on you know, it really. Led to meeting. The folks the investors as well as the chairman of the board, Alex Martin and in a second nine, and again, I've been real lucky to be in some businesses working with some incredibly talented entrepreneurs and clinicians, and you know, the opportunity we have in front of us. I think is second anon-. So it really worked out. Well, let's Saint Jude where I had the Mercer responsibilities in strategic business at all my responsibilities. And you know, again, it's it's a part of my DNA think is is the buying those startups in and I really enjoy the challenging I think in the startup environment is one that is not getting any easier. But I think, you know, Tom, regardless of title, if find folks, you work with folks, your folks reports you and your report to them that in either they thrive and flourish or it's just not the environ. And and you find out pretty darn quick. Which side of the fence you're going to be on. So tell us a bit about renal guard solutions, what was it about this opportunity that that convince you that this was the spot where you wanted to to assume the CEO and president rule get renal guard head had been developing the technology for quite a while technology platform, I should say is really about fluid management and technology is was solely focused on the reduction of contrast induced acute kidney injury, and you know, with the volume of interventions in certainly the increase in the frequency and importance of detainees avowals tavern tabby procedures the increase in chronic total ACLU's. I mean the world of interventional cardiologists in the cath lab. Buying certainly continue to spike in new therapies continue to the drive procedures that frankly us more. Contrast, more complex cases and so-. Contrast is toxic to the kidney, it sits talks to the NEF. Ron, and it's a significant problem in one that really there's really no clear cut solution to that problem. So you know, it was Donahue was the proverbial clinical unmet need and Reynold guard had done quite a bit of clockwork. Matter of fact, we just crusted over threshold or a milestone of twenty thousand cases since they received CE Mark of which in a really important part of that is it's not only a huge number and speaks to clinical adoption commercially. But really the important part of that is that eighteen hundred of those patients were done within clinical studies. And you know, at the end of the day, you're only as good as your data. And you know, we're not approved in the US. However, we've had significant uptick in clinical adoption in Europe. And it was my looking. That data as well. As talking to the people both the employee's leadership team the board and the chairman that it quickly became apparent that this was a a real potential win. And you know, it was obviously in a space that I had long history of. So it has exceeded my expectations, and and that incredibly pleased that working along side, some very talented passionate people..

But, you know, they're the foundation in my opinion. You know, it really starts and stops with people, and it starts and stops with those folks being able to foster and build a winning culture that is going to be, you know, be one of perseverance as well as sustain. You didn't stay with the acquiring companies very long. It seemed was that ever something you considered staying with larger company or did you prefer life in a in a smaller one? Well, I mean, you know, the the track record speaks for itself in terms of my preference. But I did I did stay on for example at per close. The, you know, again had another opportunity work very closely with Dr Simpson and and got in on the ground floor, and we ended up having a very highly successful exit the abbot in I believe it was two thousand after really putting together a streak in a series of significant milestones and this down with Abbott in a great company, Greg culture, and in a sirloin state in touch with a host of folks up there in outer park, Illinois, but you know, went into business development and of within strategic business development had the opportunity to do a variety of things with in my career that it hadn't done, but at the end of the. The day. You know, really what I enjoy is kind of grassroots startup environment. Where you know, you're you're developing understanding the proverbial clinical unmet need. There's a host of in a virgin market opportunities out there still within cardiovascular medicine, and through the course of building in developing silver businesses that you outlined whether it be the I R heart tanker per close have been very fortunate to develop a network of of just really talented, incredibly passionate conditions as well as entrepreneurs and.

And we always like to start off with a with a bit of of history. As to our guest found their way into the the med tech industry. So when you were attending Fairfield university was was med tech part of your plan. Now, you know sales was I'll refrain from using the joke that Fairfield was the best seven years of my life down that however, you know, large large family section four four our sales so snow under that I think it's in the DNA. But actually was a was an economics major and they're poor. Parents. Yeah. Well, you know, six family of sexy typically take care of one or two younger siblings. So you know that namic, but you know, really wanted to get into med device. One of my older brothers was in med device, and in kind of stepwise fashion lined up what needed to do in terms of getting there, you know, the traditional office equipment path, but, you know, Israel, real fortunate over thirty years to go to break into operating room sales with Dave all which is a CR VAR division, surgical division for CR Vard. And then even more fortunate was able to go to work for Dr John Simpson in nineteen Ninety-one and not assuming you know, who he is. That sounds like you do. But certainly is a one of the foremost the pioneering interventional cardiologists slash entrepreneurs. You know in. In our industry. Ask residents huger so became part of the early DVI team back in nineteen Ninety-one and really over the next close to you know, thirty years, then in mainly the cardiac area, Ben device, and and mainly within startups a couple of resurrections here and there, but really? I really enjoyed and flourished in the in the world of startups, and you had a pretty good streak going there. You'll DVI HD perk. Lows of Innis, you had a number of companies you a part of that would ultimately be acquired. So that must have been a nice a nice run had gone. Yeah. It certainly was. And and you know, there's there's there's highlights and lowlights frankly of of each of those opportunities, you know, you'd think so. It takes persistence, and thanks, you know, some luck in your side. But I guess is you look as kind of the commonality the bottom line. That's true to all. Just you know, they were just fantastic people and fantastic cultures and reflect back, and and it's not necessarily the the upside of the money you made the options you convert it and yada yada ya.

"jim dillon" Discussed on Championship Drive
"The philosophical discussion of the value of a conference championship which you Alabama seem to answer last year. That matter Dame would not all that valuable. So. You know, I I, I don't know. I mean, you know, Washington is going to need somebody in the conference to to step forward and play better. You know, Stanford's got issues. At the line of scrimmage, Oregon, I don't really. I don't have a great amount of faith in Oregon, and I don't have a great amount of faith in the entire south. So you don't like the buffs Ivan. Well, we were discussing that yesterday. Got got a play somebody. So to answer your question, No, at this moment, maybe they'd beat the Brask in that a good win. No. That is. It's sad that that made me laugh. What you guys love all this scenario talk though in early October about before? Yeah. Out of these teams will be in the mix by the time we get there, no, they're going to be. There's going to be some something happened. There always is November's the month that really sorta throws a wrench into everything. But to me, the scenario that would be just would throw everybody in the mid west into complete chaos is if for the third straight year, the big ten champion somehow does not get into the playoff. That would be fun when Notre Dame did. Yeah, let's say for the third straight year, the the big ten champ is left out in Notre Dame does get in. Yeah, thank Jim Dillon. I'll be happy camper. Yeah, you could no stain would be rising off his off his pate. Washington does have to go to Oregon on October thirteenth next week in Oregon has this week off.
