This is our executive producer. Caitlin Kelleher I heard somebody describe it as like a never ending ticker tape of gloomy numbers and that really resonated for me. It's like the magnitude and the scale of the numbers is really hard to hold in your mind. And then when he comes to the restaurant industry specifically the numbers there are huge and they're really bleak. I saw one industry survey that said eight million restaurant.

Kelleher we had Angelil last last time. So she also She had a fight last week. She did of course controversial split decision. Brian you took the controversy out of it.

No this is obviously second straight performance bonus you it was month forty five so I know I don't know if you have any questions on that but it seemed like Casey's been talking about a line a lot of fighters are they like. We had Sarah Kaufman so she wanted fighters to fight on a highway class. Closer like Phelan there at one hundred and forty five pounds this time man. They made a big difference.

I felt like great energy and also just more pop in my my shots and obviously that showed but like I really felt that in the cage. Now we're GONNA get the question. The Sigma Pizza. How's life with you? Know we talked about a little bit of a Brian. Pt's hairs looking pretty. It's defying gravity today to shake. What's when we had. It's not happening. Pizza had to stick to stick to the trend of ground. See Hair on the ace. Okay House with you. It's existing. There is There Casey. But of course this is not our podcast. This is your all's podcast. I know there's a lot of people doing this now but we were first. We're answering fan questions. I see a lot of sites now taking this format but we are the original so you can go on the twitter Hashtag aside. You've gone question the comment section. Casey's man in the Youtube comments because we we get a lot of fun youtube comments. You can throw up on the screen. So Casey I know we have a lot of questions for an og member crystal crew. Let's get it done now. Let me see if the Guy Anything. Good comments right now. It's something silly is king into one animal at will. Which would it be and why Brian in World War animals is a reality? I don't know if you read Anamar at all man. It was an awesome book series. Growing kids could turn to animals and there were all sorts of hijinks. Who Have you? But anyway I digress. Everyone comments x is going to know what that is. If you could turn into one animal at will what would it be and why tiger? That's all right. I mean. Come on you gotTa know this answer. This can't be anything but a tiger. That's my spirit animal right. There argues represent pizza sales. Did you ever read animals at all? No I was more of an outdoorsy kid. Playing Games get in fights. And if you're could be any animal or it'd be dog Reggie because he takes all the attention away from everyone eats almost food and he based his lawyers down get scratched all day and you know you can lose his shit on. You told me once and everyone's like what's wrong with me. Sherman's here goes here again. Reggie is like scratch gets fed. That's who wanted to be he has. He's like Lord. Mookie is the lawyer for royalty. That's who I'd be my dog Reggie. He's beautiful deal and he's got better hair than me. I was GONNA say. Is You have the same haircut. Is Reggie very similar? Book is is a lot more manicured Casey way. I'm would you be like being like raccoons I WANNA BE? I WANNA be a little trash panda. I was assuming that you were just going to say panda. No I mean I liked pandas. Santa's are good but I like trespassing. Does your wedding was panda. Thieves for the next wedding. Have a raccoon themed wedding. This is controversial. Had Still Panda. Their trash man doesn't like I. I enjoy enjoy raccoons resourcefulness. I mean I left a couple weeks ago. I left a bag of dog food and our back patio. And so Benjamin. Koons came and went crazy in it. My dog going crazy and I came back there and I saw one coon like looking at me. That looked over there. Were six of them looking at me. Like Oh my God. They're an army so Yeah Trash Panda of the teamwork. They love pizza. And on the clause. They're vicious yeah I can. You really saw him. I'd probably go the SLOP. They're just. They're bigger and they're strong and they tariff. Have you ever seen a west law terrifying? Are we talking Skunk APE category here? Yeah like that like they're terrifying if you go look up a picture of like a sloth getting out of like a pond there it's A. It's a nightmarish creature. It's like a it's a it's a creature from your nightmares so I'd probably go with one of those supposed to get sleep for twenty hours a day anyway. Good question is king otherwise. Here's a question from last episode Brian if you could turn your arm into been ice cream cannon on the ice cream what flavor would you wanted to shoot out and keep in mind off a continuous stream of ice cream. Like soft serve. It's like one scoop shot at says. Shooting one scoop out off like A. It's like a it's like a sure can okay. I was thinking cookie dough good answer. See Brian like these guys had terrible answers. That's a good answer. I was GonNa you last week but I didn't want to commit to. I don't Wanna I knew there are a bunch of flavors but could was top option. If you get a little something to chew on. Brian knows see. Brian's a smart man. Brian Roy just went personnel. Because of the allergens the allergens don't want to kill the world. Ultra about don't think about that. Those people don't exist in this world this fantasy world vise screen and dairy people like what the hell man shootout some some almond milk ice cream. My my girlfriend how come it can't be Vegan. I'm like there's no vegans in this fantasy world lady I I like the United again. There's some good Vegan ice cream. I'm just saying I'm not being delicious. Monotonous World Anyway. Took the cows out of business trying to take all the cows jobs come on Molly Youtube comments with Algebra in sterling and court Santa can books for UC to fifty. What are your thoughts? That Al hasn't got a title shot and do you think it's yawn versus MMA race for the belt and July. What's happening so Brian? This is your wake class thirty five. We're GONNA to use this as a way to just Aska generic question. What do you make of this one hundred thirty five title to right now now? That Henderson who has quote unquote retired? Yeah I'm curious what the negotiations are life Algebra and those guys like what you know. How much say do they have as far as? Can we make this fight? A title fight whatnot. Dana White said peons the guy. He's whoever he's GonNa fight which I thought it was. Mariah's I guess that would be the title fight I don't know man. I I feel like Henry might be playing a little game right now. I think you might be coming back sooner than we believe. Which would kinda mix up things again and and and make those guys have to wait a little bit longer. I think right. Now it's like Algebra and San Hagan. Yon Mariah's like whoever has the most devastating victory that stands out. The most is going to be the next guy. I feel the only thing that's gonNA prevent any traction as Yang can get into the country or like but if that's what violence for that and then of course Donald crews out there. Frank editors out there Josie album still out there. He was post to fight for the title. That's week before he fell out and replace Domico. Pc You're one of the biggest proponents of Peter. Yon What do you make of what's happening in the hundred five division right now? It was speak into? Peters people am on Monday I believe and they were saying all the all. The matchmaker meetings were happening on Tuesday so three days ago and so I'm sure it's all oriented out. John had a feeling that he him on. Maurois would be for an vacant toil book. Broin joins and did not read. An article joined the weeks. I and Henry might back with us. And that's what I think. Someone is think his manager said summer and its code said. He's retired so two people close to him said two different things. So who knows? Now that sounds to me like we never thought he was retired. Let's be honest so I mean you feel as though even if he was to step away for six months whoever is the champion is GonNa need to be verified by. He said he would always beaten all the great one thirty four years now and he is the measuring stick anyway boredom or do you see it the same way as the tournament. Those Fargo is the winners for for for the vacant toil. If Henry's not around and then maybe if Henry is around they still play it out like that in the winter for tannery instead. You Know Brian what you make of The News of Henry announcing his retirement Did you believe him at first or this? This is a what is it a negotiation tactic. Yeah I lean more towards negotiations. I feel like he's just getting into that position where he can make more money. You know feeding the guys that he just beat. He's got his whole stick going. It's taken off you know. And he's GonNa get he's GonNa get his best deal and his most money now with the pay per view whatever and so. I was Kinda surprised at it. I think he's playing a little bit of something you know. I know his coaches saying one thing. Then you hear something else. That's kind of probably just stirring the pot making but the UFC's going to have to make a move pretty quick. They can't wait too long to either put in some kind of interim title or a fake untitled for one of those match up so I think we'll probably hear something sooner than later about whether it's coming back or not until you sit when I go to. There's a big opportunity for US lawyers to leave all the international forwarders in the rankings. Felder told you right. Speak to us about it. And he was saying like he was looking at his position he was coming off that Khokar laws. Well he was like saying get active. Now we can keep fighting while these international borders can't get in the CAN. Make some big headway. Are you thinking about that to you? Brian Look I mean you can jump pretty rapidly here if you if you stay active at the moment yeah act- activities the whole thing like I'm trying to stay as active as possible because you know a quick win streak and you never know who you get. You might get a big opportunity. Maybe you surpass a couple of guys and maybe someone can't step in and fight because they're out of the country. Maybe you're that guy so I'm definitely looking at like that. It's weird though. Because they already booked Al Joe and San Hagan and they booked it for a non title fight so they already made that decision so curious where they're gonNA go. Who Do you pick out? Four four San Hagan Yang. Roy's Damn you'll forget you know. As far as.

Bailouts might not be popular, but there is no Plan B for a pandemic

"Stocks have come crashing down because of the corona virus the Dow is now thirty five percent lower than its record high last month it's no wonder companies all over the country are saying they need a bailout Congress is preparing to spend hundreds of billions of dollars to help them but not everyone thinks that's a good idea as NPR's Jim zarroli reports just in a matter of days the bottom fell out of the U. S. airline industry here's Nicholas Calio of the trade group airlines for America on CNBC today I've never seen anything like it no one has the speed and degradation of the business has been just mind boggling and it's not just airlines under siege cruise ships restaurants even native American casinos have seen their revenue fall off a cliff and they're lining up for help president trump says these companies aren't to blame for what's happened and he's made clear he's ready to assist them we're also looking to help companies such as the airline industry within the airline industry and we'll be doing that for Republicans who bitterly opposed the Obama administration's auto bailout the idea of extending federal largesse to companies hurt by this epidemic is hard to swallow here's Nebraska senator Ben Sasse this week if you're an industry with a good lobbying team you're told the line up to the door of the treasury department and get the line because bailout after bailout is probably in the offing and former U. N. ambassador Nikki Haley dislikes the idea of an airline bailouts so much that she resigned from Boeing's board yesterday opposition notwithstanding Congress is plowing ahead with the rescue bill Republicans in the Senate have proposed a one hundred and fifty billion dollar plan for distressed companies there would be a separate pot of money for airlines and air cargo companies says Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell we're not talking about a taxpayer funded solutions for companies that made mistakes we're talking about loans for their part Democrats want conditions attached to any rescue money like promises not to cut jobs and they want more of it to go to fund unemployment insurance for the hundreds of thousands of people getting laid off however the money is distributed the rescue poses big problems says Jeff Myron director of economic studies at the Cato Institute this is just gonna end up being a big transfer to those industries that are politically well connected and can paint a case that makes it look as though they were especially hard hit by the by the epidemic Myron says once Congress starts handing out money where does it stop why not rescue universities or even sports teams they've been hurt by the virus to Dennis Kelleher is president of the Wall Street reform group better markets he says a lot of companies have been badly managed in recent years and may not deserve to be saved they borrowed too heavily for example and often the money went not to their employees but to fund share buybacks that just made their stockholders wealthier taxpayers should only have to provide aid to companies that are vital to the United States and only companies that otherwise act in a responsible manner Kelleher points out that the big Wall Street bailout of two thousand eight proved to be especially on popular with the public with lasting political a fax and he says the onus is on Congress to do a better job this

I had met her at a video store when a new video store and she was there on. I thought about well. She gave me her assistance number. So I'M GONNA I'm GONNA contact her. Maybe have around the podcast or something. Why don't you still have a podcast? Oh I don't I still am. I did it I did about twenty five episodes and then I decided to stop because I I just wasn't sure what it was doing for me. I enjoyed the experience of it like I would get a a little mood boost after I enjoyed it but I at that time. I wasn't sure that it was the best use of my time as I tried to figure out which direction to go my career and so now you decided to take power in your own hands. Make your own youtube video. Did you start that after you moved out here to or when you lived in New York? I believe I put one video? I'm about here. Yeah so you're you're trying to before. Are you trying to form a community of fellow collaborators? Sure I'd like to I there's not a lot out there for small youtubers. It's there's the youtube space but you need ten thousand subscribers to even walk in the door so it's it's really a challenge You know I've imagined wouldn't it be cool if I set up a Youtube? Collaboration SPACE FOR SMALL YOUTUBERS. But like maybe maybe one day the user but I just want to develop my own World. I because you put that out. I mean that's why this whole this whole experience right now is happening because you put it up on twitter. Any Youtube People WanNA collaborate Do you have favorite youtubers? That media tries to reach out to and say. Hey let's let's let's make videos together or anything. Yeah I've reached out to a few quite a few and it hasn't worked out but I actually am collaborating with a friend of mine that I used to live with the New York in a week and I'm excited about that. Good the AD. She has a very large channel. So I'm excited Each year will not each year this year. We're not doing it but in two thousand twenty one so I co- organized a film festival and it's so exciting because I mean all kinds of people coming in from all these different all over the world. People come in from Switzerland and woman from Argentina woman from Kuwait People from all over the place and When most exciting thing for me like I love being bridge. I love being connector between people so this person needs this. This person has a craving for liquorice. This personal vieria has licorice. This person over here needs someone who who I Dunno so's things in his personal here knows how to SOS thing. Oh okay let's let's bartered. Let's let's bring that together so having this film festival so cool. Is there a lot of these? These filmmakers and a lot of these collaborators are starting to collaborate with each other. Now they're starting to like work on stuff with each other. There's an interview I was doing with these guys who are animators. And they had to do their own voices because they didn't know anyone who is a voice over artist and over here was a guy who's voice over artist who wanted to voice overs for animation. I said Okay you guys I WANNA watch you. Could you know exchange information right now? And they exchanged information and then they ended up working with each other and there was the coolest thing. I get such a kick out of seeing that So I think a lot of times. There's this idea of. Does this vibe that were competing against all these phantoms. Although all these unknown people out there were we have to just force our way through. We've got to compete. It's US versus them. And Oh there's lack of abundance and all this stuff all these kinds of like these. These limited minded believes that have just been kind of recycled.

"No I really don't I don't base my work on other Artists at all like that. Maybe that would be if I were focused on it and I wanted to try to improve upon my drawing skills but it's really just a hobby so I just do sort of what comes to me. So have you. Have you always just been an artist? Just wanted to create stuff I never really thought I was good at art had this art teacher in sixth grade and he was really funny and everybody likes him and I liked I liked him more than all my other teachers but I wasn't sure that he likes me back like I wasn't his favorite. I was just kind of quiet and when I was a kid I actually had a brother that died and I drew this portrait of my brother after he died. And it was a moment that the archer started coming around and giving me individualized attention and really working with me to develop my skill and he ended up choosing that portrait to go on display at a museum in China. So it's fantastic. Yeah didn't swear you'd want to draw more it. Yeah it made me feel like I had something so so. It's always sort of been sort of a special hobby you know like it's always felt very precious. It's intriguing sometimes. It just takes one person to just go to see that spark inside of us into adds some sticks on the plane. Yeah yeah that's the way to put it kind of other interests you have I don't really do outside of work and try to develop this channel. I mean a recent video. I posted as I a fitness challenge. I'm trying to to everything I do. Is just an investment in both in raising my self esteem. So I'm trying to just do things that make me more. Functional human has an an innocent fortunate because it sounds a bit selfish. Like I'd love to be able to be more devoted to my family or my friends. 'cause I mean I have a lot of love to give and and such but I know that right now I just have to focus on my self esteem. So it's what I'm doing and I'm hoping to create a more functional system so I suppose there in a sense would be one of the ideal things that you'd like to have is to a point where you're you're just come to wherever you're at you have a great self esteem and you don't have anxiety that possibly via an ideal type of situation and I don't think my anxiety is ever going anywhere. It's something I've had since I was a kid. I remember walking around the halls in school and like I was so stressed out all the time. That like I would have to consciously home-ice shoulders down because I wouldn't even know how tight I felt like just any time like I. I came back to to like getting out of every time I got out of my head I would realize I was so like hunched over and so But my anxieties not going anywhere but I just WanNa do what I'm doing in my art but in real life so create a world where I Comfortable safe happy and and have that be my life so tell me more. You mentioned something earlier about the secretary's school. What was called Secretary Scorpio? You had a special word for it. that well thirty signs that are between. Lake that are on. So if you're at the end of Scorpio in the beginning of Sagittarius. You're on the cusp. Each cusp has a different name. So the cusp of the revolution That's the one that I share and it I'd honestly I couldn't really give you a ton of information on it. It just everything I read feels completely accurate. View like wouldn't have you read so far that you feel that you see with elegantly have to pull it up to okay. I'll say this. I really do that because I think ever. Since I was a little kid I've I've constantly trained to choose the path that is not. I guess opposites you know go swimming upstream against constant chosen the path that is not a revolution has kind of been like a thing of of my heart in other words like starting a new a new thing and not just kind of following the sheep not following the Monday So this is actually. This appeals a lot to me with this idea. Do you think you're a free spirit. Yeah I've done it my way I I can definitely see him craft in my life the way that I wanted to be and And it's great because the more that you do that the more that I found myself doing it more I found my my world circumstances falling in line with it. I'm a big.

"Printed. Titanium part located under the pylon. Connecting jet engines to the wings of the plane since then a number of. Engines have fallen off. No, wait a minute. Seven forty seven. The number of such parts has steadily increased for instance, Boeing already has sixty thousand three D printed parts used in its aircraft, which is still relatively a small number considering that a Boeing seven forty seven consists of six million parts, both manufacturers, however agree that three d printing technology provides them with entirely new benefits and opportunities such as manufacturing complex components that would not be possible with conventional production methods. Now, I think of three D printing as those little printers that you can buy from mono, price and other places that use plastic, but three D printing is also something that they can do with titanium and other steel things and metals, and whatever that's probably term for it is additive manufacturing. There you go AM baby. That's the future. Not not a I am got into a m PM. Yes. All right. Thank you Chris for sending link to that. Now. This is significant Southwest Airlines is one of those airlines that was just a doing things extremely different in the aviation world many many years ago, and it was led by a gentleman named herb Kelleher he founded the airline and he died yesterday at age eighty seven and that was when was this article a couple of days a couple days ago? And but he he lived a nice long life eighty seven years old. And this is an article that was published quite some time ago. I think it was early was in the nineties or the two thou- early two thousands anyway to Ninety-one, thank you. And there's also an accompanying video from Utah. Bob that someone sent us as well that I believe actually it was the euro that sent in the sixty minutes interview, Southwest's herb, Kelleher, very interesting and informative video that you should all watch because you can kind of get a feel a taste of this guy's personality, which I think was a huge factor in the success of this airline and many many airlines out there today use Southwest's model as a model for their business plan for operating low cost carriers, and anyway, he he was quite the man very funny guy, and we're going to really miss him. But we're really going to, you know, bask in all of the wonderful things that he brought to our industry for time for a long time to come. Hurt Keller was really the one of the founders of low cost airlines southwest isn't necessarily that any longer. But when they started who can believe the legacy that they turned into the legacy carry that. They are also if it weren't for herb Kelleher southwest and the arguments that took place between southwest and braniff continental us an would not be as big an airport as it is. And they also talked about a. Right amendment and all of that. Yeah. Field. And he was really just just did things differently at a time when everyone was kind of doing things the same way. Right. Yes. That that interview from sixty minutes is you know, has a lot of interesting information regarding that, and they kind of focused I guess during that time America West and southwest were really butting heads for the the right to basically dominate Phoenix sky harbor and the America West CEO was not very happy about Southwest's their their efforts there. Yeah. Herb Kelleher also brought hot pants to the flight attendants of south west if you'll remember that was one of their selling points, quite a while when they first started I'm not trying to be even sexist and everything, but it's really true. Yeah. In fact, again, watch that video you'll see exactly what Mike is talking about there. Things have changed quite a bit since the the nineties and. But anyway, so we're gonna miss herb rest in peace, sir..

Not just to Mark not not just because they deserve. It. We make heroes out of people because that's how we point to the behaviors that we want to encourage motivate inspire 'cause imitation of. I'm reading a book called one summer nineteen twenty seven by Bill Bryson and Bryson takes the nineteen twenty s the summer of nineteen twenty seven and all the interesting things that happened kind of puts them in the context of the fascinating year. But in the build up to nineteen twenty seven there is an extensive discussion of aviation. And in World War, Two aviation begins to forgive the pun liftoff takeoff.

So you could fly over them. And you'd immediately know how many troops do they have prior to that from the beginning of time. The only thing you could use or scouts and spies. And then the biggest advancement was in in optical amplification the early days of of the banana killer. But what would you know, really strategic generals would hide their troops? So that you wouldn't know how many they have or they would stretch their troops to give you the impression that they were much larger one of the things that that the southerners did the rebels in in civil war was make loud noises, sorta like Jericho in the bible make loud noises to give off the impression that they were larger in number than they were in hopes of frightening.

And how were they assembled is the right flank three times the size of the left lane. Will let me make sure I I moved my troops in preparation. And then eventually they started using these as delivery mechanisms for items that could for for weapons that could kill the early days of the bomb was simply a wine bottle with filled with gasoline and an ignition device, but it wasn't terribly effective. And it certainly wasn't very accurate and it was hand tossed. There was a hand held bomb called a flash at that would be used. But again, it could be as much as a half mile off. But World War One show that it could be a useful form of war. And that led to great advancements by World War Two. Not only was it a useful way to kill a lot of people with a minimal loss of life on urine. It was an exponential. It was a multiplier of force based on your numbers. You no longer had to have a bigger army. You could make a difference, and you could sink ships as well. But then the planes. Themselves became the combatants. And that's where we get the red baron. And that's where we get the the feats of daring do is these men with go up and these dog fights in the air. And then from there we began to understand that air travel could shrink the world.

The big state so. But he turned that in to an amazing company. Let alone and amazing airline. He assured in low cost airlines low cost airfares now that was their moniker for many many years, and they were the low cost care not anymore. They are there's a lot of people that are very competitive with them. But their prices are still much more than maybe a lot of other airlines, but they're still they have other competitors. They're right up there with them on price. But the company. Has never lost money. Never and a company that when we you wanna get into a debate about labor, and management and unions and all of that. All of your arguments. Get blown out of the water when you take a look at Southwest Airlines because of the fact that they have a union and the management and the labor. Oh, they get their squabbles. And all that, but they get along terrific. Management supports labor labor supports management. They are. Highly paid as a result. That's why they get along. So well but Keller he was in the studio. Why don't we take some calls? I said, okay. We had somebody called. I forget what the question was. The I think it was the why is it that you give out a number for people when they check in.

"I'm guy Roz and on today's show. How an eccentric Texas lawyer turned a crazy idea into Southwest Airlines. Now one of the biggest airlines in world. Could you could you start by introducing yourself, Mr. Keller registered herb, if you would her, please. Okay. Herb I can you just say your full name. This is herb Kelleher and your best known as the founder of Southwest Airlines. Great. How how old are you? Now. Eighty five. Okay. Great perfect. Okay. We are very excited. Talk to you about your story. I'm just going to jump in here for like to mention that before we really started our interview I had some time to just Chit chat with her. And I learned some interesting things about him like like what he eats for breakfast. Normally for breakfast. I have choose crackers and what he likes to drink while Turkey bourbon. And that he's been a smoker for pretty much his entire life. I just enjoy the magical mystical aroma and site of smoke. So how soon after you wake up? Do you have a cigarette? Well, it's a nanosecond tobacco king. With your crackers. Even before by cheese crackers for the story of how herb launched Southwest Airlines yet to go back about fifty years nineteen sixty six to be exact herb was a young lawyer. He's living in San Antonio, Texas, where he had started his own law firm, helping clients to start companies and one day one of herbs clients guy named rollin king calls him up. And he says he I heard about this airline called Pacific southwest at flies only in California. And I have an idea. Let's let's me for a drink rollin came to me with the idea of setting up a similar operation in Texas. And how soon after he sort of floated this idea to use saying? Yep. Let's do it. Let's start a company. It was a very short period of time. Maybe you know, like a minute. That fast. No it was longer than that. I was just joking, but within a very short days within days within days. Well, I I was very skeptical. But then I did some research and discovered that PSA was very successful in California that Texas supplied all the requisites for an intrastate airline because it was a big state that had large metropolitan areas far enough apart to justify flying. And so Houston, Dallas and San Antonio will the obvious first targets because they were the three largest cities in Texas. What did you know about airlines at the time? Well, I knew nothing about airlines, which I think made me imminently qualified to start one. Because what we tried to do it south west was get away from the traditional way that airlines had done business. So I started with the tabula Rasa blank slate. And I think that was very helpful. So at this point in how old are you, by the way at that point in your life? I was. Thirty five thirty five. Okay. So you had a family. Yes. Right for children for children. And you you've got this successful often by late was he was the airline industry profitable at that time. No. It was not notably profitable. As a matter of fact, Warren Buffett reportedly joked about it at one time and said if a capitalist had shot down the right brothers that Kitty Hawk in nineteen zero three the economy would probably be better off. And so it didn't have very great returns. It was constantly in difficulty. So why did you even think that this was a plausible idea? Well, I think it was the allure of doing something different doing something. That was exciting. I really always have had a great deal of curiosity. And then I thought to myself, well, you know, most the adults in the United States of America haven't been able to fly because of the cost. Barrier is too expensive is too expensive. They just thought it was business people long expensive counts. And so what I'm saying is that in terms of market analysis. There was a huge untapped market for flying out there..

"Kate's Kibble dot com. The funniest people I ever met that was not a comedian. Although he kind of himself one in a sense. He was brilliant. CEO? Herb Kelleher dubbed the eccentric, founder of Southwest Airlines. It was amazing how he came up with the idea for Southwest Airlines. Then of course, he really he did he revolutionized commercial flying and aviation, and he he did something for the passengers he made it more fun. He made it more affordable. There's no question about that. And as somebody who had a talk show twice in the Dallas Fort Worth area because that's where south west hub was I had a chance to meet him. And we had some great conversations. And he told me he listened to my radio show, whether he did or not he said that and we had a conversation about politics in sports business everything wrapped up in between. But he had some really. Busy funny comments that I wanted to scribble down immediately soon they left his lips because he was known to be that way. He he had a quick tongue with so interesting is he he was the lawyer, and he left his sperm can start south west in the sixties and the whole idea because he no he knew from flying was to have low cost transportation between a couple of cities where he had travelled Houston. Dallas and San Antonio the big. Cities where that we're located in Texas. So then. There were other competitors. Like Continental Airlines, they didn't want that southwest airline in the sky. So there was even a temporary restraining order at one point. He fought the van and he never charged anything in legal fees. He went all the way to the supreme court of Texas. They ruled in favor of south west the companies known for cheap fares lack of seating assignments. All coach cabins started flying in nineteen seventy one and really did revolutionize air travel. He really did. And he had that funny wit and the he treated people. Well, he was known for treating people who were firm. So so well that they wanted to continue to work for him. So he was the executive chair from March nineteen seventy eight until may of two thousand eight and as president and CEO from eighty one through two thousand and one. So isn't that interesting? I mean, he was so beloved he held the chairman emeritus title when you know when he died, and which was the other day. So at the age of eighty seven he dies on Thursday after the holiday and in his wake he leaves all kinds of stories a legacy. There is no question about it. He brought as American Airlines CEO Doug, Parker said freedom of. Traveled hundreds and hundreds of millions of people, and he was unmatched in his style. The way he took care of customers and shareholders the people that work for met whole whole thing. And one of the things he talked about that he enjoyed about life, by the way, which had nothing to do with running. The airlines. I heard an interview with with him where he talked about wild Turkey bourbon. And he said that he smoked most of his life and stop no matter what and he like cheese crackers for breakfast. Somewhere. Upstairs. There is a bourbon with his name on it. But God rest, so what a revolutionary guy, and what he did for so many people, especially the people who worked for him, and then especially the people who were able to afford to fly because of him huge. Herb Kelleher Kelleher founder of Southwest Airlines dead at the age of eighty seven. No truth to the rumor that Nancy Pelosi wanting to be speaker of the house was dead upon arrival did not happen. However, there were a lot of Democrats that jumped off the Pelosi train so fifteen in the end, fifteen Democrats. Initially this huge rebellion about Pelosi being speaker again with the Democrats taking over the majority in the house. But the house formerly elected her Thursday to lead the new congress. The vote was two hundred twenty one ninety two over congressman Kevin McCarthy who is now a minority leader. So Democrats gained forty seats in November elections, and that gave them their biggest electoral games in four decades and followed eight years where they were in the minority. So now, they have that commanding edge in one of the chambers of congress. We get our math. We understand it them Pelosi. Seventy eight years old. People were criticizing that fresh face that whole thing the whole idea is she used one on one meetings. She promised assignments and priorities and lobbying and all that kind of stuff, and she also promised you wouldn't serve more than four additional years and speaker. So that's it. These are her for years, and she's out the president said he looks forward to working with Nancy Pelosi as speaker of the house he made that gesture earlier in the day on Thursday after that happened when he was speaking at the White House. So how about that? It's interesting with the opposition, Ohio Republican congressman John fainter. If you remember was elected speaker in twenty fifteen was twenty five Republicans voting for other candidates that was pretty much the high water, Mark. Of any speakers own party all the way back to World War One. But it says that they're certainly people can jump off. And that's exactly what happened to her with some people who did not back her. But now it's history we move on. And we see what happens with this whole wall deal, and whether or not we're going to get government in action again, and we're going to see it's going to be a couple of weeks of. Nope. Nope. Try again. Nope. Nope. Nope. And I really do think that's what we're going to see. It's not surprising. Because the president said, listen, I I said I wanted this wall. This is what we need. He compared with the day to the Vatican. Vatican has a giant wall. They're fine. All these other countries have a wall. I mean a little stretch on the Vatican thing. But whatever. This shutdown without the border deal is is is gonna change or not listen, I have some friends on the hill. I've talked to them. It doesn't seem like anyone's budging. This is not a fantasy whatever you're hearing anytime during the day listening to get any talk radio or anything on the tube anywhere, anything you're reading pretty true. It doesn't take a genius to figure this out. This is the buzz in the backyard. If you in fact, have a government job, no matter what you're hearing is this concerning, right? Because you're maybe you're waiting for a paycheck. Not everybody's in that situation. But there are certainly people who are in that situation that you did have a Republican Senator the Republican Senator from Colorado Cory Gardner, who is really going to face a tough reelection in twenty twenty. Let's face it. But. He's since congressman reopened the doors to the federal government, even without that deal on the whole border wall thing, he's the first Senate Republican to call for an end to the partial shutdown even without a deal on the demand for the five Bill to fund the border wall. He says I think we should pass a continuing resolution, but there's not a CR there's no crtv found. They don't exist. They fell on the floor and someone swept them up who was getting paid. Because there's no continuing resolution. I don't see I don't see it anytime soon at all. This means weeks. It means could we go through. I dunno. Could we go through January? Four do does the government opened in a few weeks? Remember, the Senate passed a stopgap measure to keep the government open until February eighth and kept funding for the border fencing because they didn't say wall fencing flat at the twenty eighteen level. So that's not flying. I would say anybody who is planning any kind of a trip where they were going to check out one of the national parks year at luck. You need to reschedule that luckily in a sense, this is happening in the winter, which is always one this goes on because we're talking about funding and budgets, and of course, that's one that's going to happen. But there's not a lot of vacations like those nice weather vacations where people traditionally I'll say traditionally because that's not true all the way cross the board. Visit some of the national parks that have had to be shut down. Because that for one is one of the things that has happened in the midst of all this. There is a big push to see who is going to run on the democratic side against Trump when he runs in twenty twenty and that campaigns Ardy underway for.

Business rule: Treat your employees well and they will treat your customers well

"Business radio, talk with Craig, MC, voi-, Craig. You've given us some great insights. One of the most important ones I want to go back to even before you. You hit us with these four principles that are in the. Doc was to focus on the employee's first and I can't tell you how many times I've quoted herb Kelleher on how important it is that if you take care of the employs a tear care, the passengers on south west airlines, and if the passengers are happy, they fly again, that makes all the stakeholders and stockholders happy. It starts with employs you hire good people. You make them happy. They wanna come to work. They wanna take care of customers and it's more than just their job at something they're fulfilled in some great takeaways so far, you know, start with the brand purpose. Know who your audience is, your customers, your employees and the community people that aren't necessarily customer, but we'll talk about you and what's the approach used to reach the audience in the fourth principle was, what channels are you using to connect with the audience? All right. Give us one or two more. Before we end up here. You've got great content, and if this doesn't entice people to say, I want more and we'll find out in just a few minutes how they can get more of you not just your book, but give us another one. Or two of these nuggets. So we've spoken about the the employees being many important, and I'll fifth principle that we work with is about what is it that you offer as a brand? What is it? You offer that any different than anyone else in the marketplace and how do you expect to attract the right consumers and the best customers on those? So the best employees, if you don't have an offer, that's compelling indifference, you competition, right. So you know, employee experiences is absolutely paramount on the best people will go to work for the best brands and the best friends are the ones that are identifying who the right fit is for those, though their own brand, who's the right people to work for for that brand. I'm wanted his, they value so that they can offer them an experience. That means they never wanna leave unless the same, whether you're a customer or you're an employee, how. Do you make it feel like this is such a good fit for me? I don't really ever want to go anywhere else. I love it. All right. Number six. Well, number six is a huge topic, and that's roundabout the topic of what we call advantage. But really, it's about understanding how you can use insights in order to drive value to create competitive advantage. So you know, we live in now way you can collect that much dates about somebody. It's unreal. Yes, so so we have so much so much dates, trillions of gigabytes dates for about people, but yet none of that really matters unless you can use it effectively and turn into insulin value. Right, right. But if you get the right, if you get it right, you can really, really stunned down. You can really make a customer feel like you understand them Beck's anyone else. It takes away the hassle because you you just know what they want and you make sure that you make it easy for them to get what they need
