"Am reborn. For all those years of running from anything resembling religion in all the scientific training that tells me to doubt anything outside of the prescribed confidence limits, I find myself defined these days more by what I can not see than by what I can. As I wander into the pre dawn dark of an autumn wood. I feel the presence of things beyond flesh, bone, and blood. My being expands to fit the limitlessness of the wild whirl. My sense is flush to full, in my heart beat quickens. With the knowledge that I am not alone. Thank you. I also have sparrow envy, the field guide to birds and lesser beasts, which also contains poems that are better collected in your book of poetry. I mean, I have a couple. Is there anything I wrote down a couple that I would be interested in reading? But I wonder if there's anything just flowing out of what we just talked about that feels like you'd want to read? You know, if I have a joy poem, it's love for a song. Yeah, I've got that one on here. Okay. Why don't you read that? Love for a song. Love is barter. Love is bits of affection traded for pieces of adoration. It is desired doled out on the whip poor will summer wanting. It is our craving for the meadow larks ringing song, our longing for springs, greening, from our sun, starved spirits, down to our bare toed roots. We seek the winding path and wander until we find the sweet spots. Black water cypress swamp, tall grass Prairie sweep, the place where moonlight glancing off of tide slicked stones makes us weep. We want the wild soul and a shadow dwelling wood thrush, heaps it on us in self harmonizing sonata. We revel in wild flowers bloom, marvel in the migratory sojourns of birds, dodging, falling, stars. Sink yourself deep in the dizzying dance of pollen drunk bees. Find hope in the relieved canopies. Of the tallest trees. Wind and water, storm, and surf. They can move us to other ends. Therein is the turn on. It's the honey sweet seduction. Nature asks only that we notice. A sunrise here, a sunset there, the surge that overwhelming inexplicable thing in a swallows joyous flight, where the dawning of new light that melds heart and head into sensual soul, in that moment of truly seeing. That is love. Oh, thank you so much, drew. This is so beautiful and I'm just really glad you're in the world. I'm glad to have. I'd heard of you, but to really steep in this was just such a joy and kind of a bomb in this moment. And I'm so excited to put this out into the world. So thank you for what you do. Well, Christa, thank you so much for giving the world these conversations and hope and joy and illumination. And that's critical now. So thank you so much for having me. I'm grateful. I'm sorry that we weren't able to do this at the festival kind of in person, but hopefully we will both get to be a little bit more migratory again one day. And perhaps we'll find ourselves perhaps our paths will cross. I'll look forward to that. Yeah, me too..

"I get from one point to the next in that trajectory of legacy from parents and Jim Crow to me and integration and moving to where we are now is a family and as a people as a country even if I can't find joy, it's going to be hard for me to make it. To that next justice point. Right. So it's important in as hard as it is to say to find it. Sometimes it's in a song. You know, my grandmother sometimes would just sing and that was her joy. Or just home, you know? Yeah. How does that run sound in your backyard? Oh gosh, you know, one of their songs is this teakettle song is to get a tea kettle tea kettle pee. And it's one of the first songs that you hear in the morning, but wren sing all your long. But what I know now is that as the days get sort of incrementally longer, their songs get stronger. And both of them will sing and this is mid January. Sometime in March, just a couple of months away, whom we're marking a year really from when backyards became sort of our bastions of quarantine that those wrens will begin to build nests. And they'll begin this cycle of making more of themselves. And in that, there's some hope. There's some, there's some joy, there is some inspiration for looking forward. And that, to me, is what a little brown bird singing two kettle tea kettle tea kettle tea. That's what it brings. I mean, because that's their audacious birds, they're small, but they are, they're some of the loudest birds out there. And they're inquisitive. There's no crevice crack or cranny in the backyard that they don't know about. Okay. I'm gonna look for them. Do they come to Minnesota? You know, yeah, occasionally, the climate change, unfortunately, has kind of expanded the world of some birds, including Carolina wrens. And so they will, their range is expanding north, but then when there are harsh winters, they're pushed back. So I think there are some Carolina rinds in portions of Minnesota now, but just a decade or two ago they probably were not. It would have been something that birders may have been clamoring over to see, but I'm willing to bet you that Carolina rens find their way into the north. I just want to ask you a couple more questions. And then do some reading. So obviously we're not going to have time to talk about this, but in your memoir, you mentioned this evolution you underwent in your late 20s from your transition from being a wine drinking cheese eating ecologist to being a beer swilling venison chewing wildlife biologist. And I just thought maybe as we wind up, I like to talk. And in some ways you've been exploring this all along, but your evolution as a human being and as a scientist. And there was some intriguing things I saw you saying along these lines. For example, more and more, I find myself taking the hard data and wrapping it in genuine caring. Or this time is teaching me to extend the philosophies of science to life. I just wonder if you'd like to draw you out on those. On that. Evolution. What are you thinking of? Yeah. Well, evolution, again, it's a trajectory, right? With no, with no endpoint and perfection. So for me, it's just sort of all about having taking the experiences of the past and adapting using them to adapt to what is now and maybe what's to come. So, you know, when I went from sort of this, you know, from one place of being. The guy who didn't necessarily want people, I didn't want to have to address the questions of race and bias and prejudice and things that I had experienced, but I wanted people to just see me as a scientist. I just, you know, and this was before social media and people could just, you know, look you up and there you are. And I began to realize that as especially as I was writing and I was thinking about questions of identity that understanding who it is that you are. Is part of your evolution. That you begin to look inward to understand why you why you feel the way you do about this thing or that thing. And then things like ancestry become important to you, and in thinking about the nest from which the egg from which you had, the nest from which you fledged. All of that is a part of everyone's evolution. And so my own evolution, you know, that goes from straddling time between the ramshackle and the ranch. To being a college professor to being this person now is all of that, again, is this sort of hoarded cash of experiences that have led me to be able to hopefully survive these plagues. And that's the importance of evolution. You can't predict what obstacles are going to be ahead of you and pre evolve to them. Okay. That's so good to think about that way, yeah. Well, you hope that there's enough flexibility and resilience. You talked about that earlier that there's enough somehow built in to you that you can bounce.

"And that's sort of where we are, but you got to handle the bear and hope that a tree doesn't fall on your head or a boulder doesn't crush you. So, you know, when I wrote that essay in that essay was really, it sort of this compilation of as much as I keep a journal, and I think of these things as plagues again, I go back to my grandmother because she, man, she used to always talk about the end of the world. And that stuck with me, and my kid brain, you know, I was imagining frogs and locusts. In all of that stuff. But she never told me about this. So in some ways, I wonder what she would say, but then I tracked back to ancestors again and certainly they thought had to think of chattel slavery as a plague, and how do you get through that? Yeah. For my parents. How did they get through Jim Crow? How do people who are abused to get through the day and tough times, not knowing whether where the blows will come from. So I try to I'm trying. It's a practice, right? And I'm trying to tread carefully trying to get through it as best I can and it's not always easy because this just seems like an uphill hike in mud. Yeah. You know, one of the themes that's come through in a lot of conversations I've had. In the last couple of years, actually, is the relationship that it almost feels countercultural and almost a dubious to talk about, but the relationship between justice and joy. And the importance of knowing what you love, in order to have the resilience and the in order to be able to walk to, to know what you need to fight and what needs to be rebuilt and remade and. Obviously you take joy in being an ornithologist and you've also said and you actually say you know as a scientist, this is almost not a scientific statement that you hear joy in birdsong. So I wonder if I wonder, I feel like you shine a very distinct light on this notion. Of justice and joy. And I just wonder what you how you might reflect on that. Well, I do think that joy in part is the justice we give ourselves. And for me, you know, the songs of birds are important and they signal the beginning of the day and the end of it and what birds are doing in their lives and carrying on. But I think joy must be something you try to have joy is something that no one can take from you. Yeah. That it's something that you can hoard and you can hold in your heart in a way and you can protect that joy in a way that when all of those things on this rough trod trail around you are threatening you. That you at some quiet moment can pull that joy out and experience it. And even if it's just for a moment, you know, that's the bird flying through the yard. That's the cardinal. That's the song. That's the memory of something good. That you say, you know what? And my grandmother used to sing this song, you know? You know, the world didn't give it the world can't take it away. And so in that sort of in that sense of joy, that. Justice is, you know, it's a long time coming for many of us, but how do you sustain again. Until you get it? Until you are. To you, you are in that place, and I believe for me, I have to find those moments daily, and again, it's a struggle sometimes. You know, it's a struggle sometimes to. Endure all of this stuff. And to say, ah, there it is. You know, as you said, as you said, that bird, look at that. Yeah. Look at that. And I've had those days where it's just nothing is going right. And then it seems like there's more coming that's going to go wrong. And there's a wren, this pair of rinds in the backyard that I know are probably sort of the resident wrens and I watched them bring off a brood this past spring when I was sitting there in the adirondack chair. And I wonder about those wrens and how they are. But in that moment of that little brown bird that's always so inquisitive that sings reliably in that moment that I'm thinking about that wren, I'm not thinking about anything else. That's joy. And so sometimes I think we have to we have to learn to recognize the joy that the world didn't give us and that the world can't take away in the midst of the world taking away what it can. So justice is. I don't think, I don't think justices a destination, I think it's a journey. And an understanding that there are things for me that were better than my parents had, but that we all have to work to get to that next place on the path. And so that's to me, Chris to sort of how I link the two that the only way.

"There's some joy, there is some inspiration for looking forward. And that to me is what, you know, a little brown bird singing a few kettle tea kettle tea kettle T, that's what it brings. I mean, because that's their audacious birds, they're small, but they're some of the loudest birds out there. And they're inquisitive. There's no crevice crack or cranny in the backyard that they don't know about. Okay. I'm gonna look for them. I do love there are many, there have been many mission statements and in what you've been saying. I liked this thing you wrote, which has a lot of theological religious imagery, but as you've made that your own, you said doing good things for and revering nature are just acts. There is righteousness in conserving things, staving off extinction and simply admiring the song of a bird. In my moments of confession in front of strangers talking about my love of something greater than any of us, I become a freer me, I am reborn. Yeah, you know, as much as I ran from my grandmother's first Sunday God, you know, I worship every bird that I see and wildness is a wayward weed, but it's also worthy of adoration and worship, so each time I see in those things that are flying or that are wild and free, I see a bit of me in that. And then that whole creation story my grandmother used to tell me about, I become a part of that. And I get to evolve through it. So my grandmother never mentioned that word evolve, but no. Part of what she taught me gave me the strength to do it. I feel like you were touching on what feels to me like just one of the strangest things about us as creatures that just becoming fully ourselves is the work of a lifetime. Oh, that's it. That is. That's the practice. That's the practice, but it seems, it is. I just think it's profoundly strange. And interesting. I agree. You know, it's, again, you can go back and you can think about what you thought your life or life or the world would be like. And you get taught the lesson of the profoundly strange, right? Things that you could not have imagined that were improbable. And you're living in them. And then you hopefully get through them. And you're on the other side somehow. And you can't quite figure out how you did it. But then there was some joy that you held on to somehow. Yeah. And there you are.

"I'm Krista tippett and this is on being. Today, experiencing the world and life in our time through the ornithologist, hunter conservationist and poets, eyes and ears of drew lanham. He's the author of the celebrated book, the home place, memoirs of a colored man's love affair with nature. He wrote a beautiful piece called elegy and three plagues. In 2020. And it was interesting to read that even you, you spend your time in the natural world, attending to the natural world, loving the natural world. But it was still even a new experience for you, and it was an experience a lot of people had. That all of the travel you'd been doing or the wild excursions you'd been doing were you were sent instead into your backyard. Your backyard lawn and your adirondack chair. And that also was an experience of discovery. Yeah, and still is in many ways. You know, quarantine and being sort of sentenced to home in a way is, I mean, it's different for so many of us, but for me, it was, it was sudden stop. Because I was approaching my migratory period when, you know, that part of the year when following the birds. And sitting back there in the backyard for four weeks for months and just watching the seasons come and go in the birds with them. It's sort of like the leftovers that get better. Up to a point. You know, they're not, we don't appreciate them when we first cook them. And then we're like, oh wow, that soup is really good two days later. So the backyard became that, and there are these birds, things like rose breasted gross beaks that I was hearing from my Friends and seeing on social media that they were having them in their backyard and I haven't gotten any rose breasted grosbeaks yet, but then suddenly there they were one morning and they were sticking around for longer than I remember them or longer than I had been at home to see them before. Yeah. And it made me realize just how much on the go I had been, but also just what these birds were doing, that these were birds that had come from Central America, and many of them had come through the Caribbean, and now they were with me and then I was going to send some of those birds to Vermont and New Hampshire and Minnesota, and that there was no way for anyone to prove because these birds weren't marked that birds that I was seeing one week weren't the birds that they were seeing the next week, and so I began to imagine sort of that connecting, but sitting by my plastic pond full of little fish and frogs. And sometimes with a beverage was, you know, that was sort of a daily saving grace in a way. They're even used the word pilgrimage of pilgrimage to your backyard. I think you say, you say some things that feel so helpful to me about the importance and the beauty and the goodness of learning about the common birds. And yeah, I mean, this imagination you have, I don't have to be an ornithologist to kind of take that in, right? To think about how you say to think about how important your backyard can be for birds that it can be critical space for them to grab food that they lift off for far away places and your backyard has been a place that fueled that and that you witness this rest and refueling and respite in their creaturely existence. I feel like something that any of us can pick up. Well, yeah, I mean, if you're, if you're fortunate to, I mean, I took backyard for granted, right? And those of us who got to go to the backyard were lucky, right? We were the fortunate, yeah. Yeah, and but then in seeing those gross beaks that were exotic, I was watching those gross beaks in Iraq with my cardinals, my grandmother's red birds that, I mean, who can ignore that? Who can ignore a red bird? So in thinking about those cardinals, I can remember seeing, yeah, there would be 8 or a dozen rose breasted gross beaks back there, but then there were 8 or ten cardinals. And I began to know some of these cardinals by crest character or a female that appeared just a little redder than another female or even behavior or where they liked to perch, or watching a cardinal. Watching a red bird as the sun would go down on a day, the end of the day that still had a little bit of chill in it. And watching a bird sit in the last shafts of sunlight, watching the setting sun, blazed through that bird. To me, gave me this appreciation again for the things that we often pass by that cardinals is common as they might be for some of us common is a word that sort of dismisses sometimes what we should be paying attention to. Yeah. I feel like I have a first part of me that really wants to make this confession to you, which is something I've thought so much about in my life that I didn't have family. Like you did that taught me the names of birds or the really that paid attention to them. And I also, in my backyard, I don't know, and maybe I see some of those cardinals here in Minnesota that you saw in your yard. You're right. It's a resting. And I tend to think red bird, like your grandmother. And I've always wondered, I feel ashamed of this that I don't know the names. And I also think I've kind of felt like it's too late to start. So I will just appreciate them. I don't know. Do you have any advice for me on that? I have no idea how many people are like this or if this is my problem. Well, it's not a problem. There's no shame in not knowing the name of a bird. If it's a red bird to you, it's a red bird to you. Yeah, at some point, as a scientist, it's important for me to be able to identify birds by accepted common names in Latin names and those things, but then I revert frequently to.

"I'm Krista tippett, up next, my unedited conversation with ornithologist and poet drew lanham. There is, as always, a shorter produced version of this wherever you found this podcast. It's great to meet you. Thank you so much for doing this. Thank you for having me, Christa, really appreciate it. It's good to be here. We're there. Or wherever we are. Whatever place means right now. Do you have your do you have the home place? And sparrow envy with you? I do. I do. Okay, okay. 'cause I think I have some things marked that I might ask you to read at the end. Okay. But I'm also happy for you to pull something out if you feel if you feel called. Spontaneously, and also, you know, to yeah, so I think, yeah, so absolutely feel free if you just feel like you want to read something as we're going that illustrate something we're talking about in conversation, but also know that when we get to the end, I want to just have you read some pieces of your writing as well. Sounds good. Okay. Zach, are we good from your end? Let me go to settings, right? Okay. Let's see here. Setting system, sound, output is road. And input is road. Okay. Great. Well, here we are. Is it true that you're in a writing shed? Yeah, well, yeah, that's what I play it off as a little shit called the thicket. It was originally a storage house, and I converted it out of necessity for hoarding stuff that I want to surround me and also to have a little escape pod. So that's where I am today. Yeah, I'm actually. I would say out of necessity, but what feels like more out of despair. Building. A writing, what I'm calling a writing retreat in my backyard. I don't actually want it. I mean, I actually want to think and write back there rather than because in my house, I do the zoom and I do work. And yeah, especially since here we are with all these months of being in this one place. So yeah, so I'm jealous, I'm jealous. That you already have you. Well, Christa, I mean, it came together really out of despair in many ways because I was, you know, my story is one of really sort of searching for space constantly because as a child I really didn't have it, I sort of always shared it. I didn't have my own room. I shared my grandmother's bedroom and the bed for a good while until I got bigger and then so this place is, it's the in a way in that Thoreau's Walden was really not very far from. His mother's home and this is the side yard, it's not the backyard, only because I couldn't get it in the backyard. But so it sits like this appendix of a building on the side of the house, but it's important when I don't get out here, I miss it. So yeah, I understand. I can empathize with that desire of despair. Yeah. I want to read what I think are the first lines of the home place, the introduction. You wrote, let me just actually have a typed it out, but I just want to read it from the book. That's not special. I am a man in love with nature. I am an eco addict, consuming everything that the outdoors offers in all its in its all you can sense seasonal buffet. I'm a wildling born of forests and fields and more comfortable on unpaved back roads and winding Woodland paths than in any place where concrete asphalt and crowds prevail. You write also in that somewhere in that same passage, why does my blood run wild that's a question you've asked. I just want to ask as we start like how far back and can you even feel it in your body? Does that question and your sense of being this way go? Wow, probably to, I don't know, four or 5 years old maybe? That point in time when I was given some freedom allowed to wander a little bit beyond my parents, I view or my grandmothers, I view so. I would think maybe then, but certainly by 6. Because by 6, I was in head start and that kind of thing. And out. And sort of wandering around the yard at least and not long after that had my first bicycle. So I think back to those times with my grandmother and if I was still sleeping in the bed with her, then it would have been 5 or 6 years old. That places me at her place and so when it places me there, I'm thinking of her throwing out handfuls of grits to what she calls snowbirds that we know is junko's and but sparrows and all these other things. Or her talking about owls being bad omen when they were calling around the house. So most of my life I've thought about things beyond four walls and what was in the Woods or what was roaming in the darkness that I couldn't see, so it's been, it's been a long time. You call your grandmother, your mama? My math. Right? And yet, you kind of, it sounds like you kind of grew up both in your home, your parents home. And called the ranch and my math is house, the ramshackle, and you kind of straddled these physical and symbolic worlds that both imprinted you. Yeah, I'm an age creature, I guess that kind of straddled a lot of worlds it seems, but that was the arrangement my grandmother, my grandfather died, and in 61, and I was born in 65 and when I was born and named Joseph, I was sort of my grandfather's namesake, his middle name was Samuel, my middle name is drew, but my grandmother asked for me. So I was with her for about half of my life up until I was 15. So I slept over there every night. I usually and she kept me until it was until I was a school age, and so that imprint was very, very strong. Just sort of her coming of age in the 20s and 30s and 40s met that I sort of grew up with a very different sensibility. She never called a refrigerator a refrigerator. It was an icebox. And so I grew up with that language too. In Oklahoma. There you go. I mean, so we never lose that. Yeah. You know, it's not a gas station is a filling station. Yeah. You know, all those things really informed me there. So that was a big imprint, but then when, again, I was able to roam, I would walk over to my parents house, the ranch, which, back then, it seemed like it was miles away, but really it's only about a quarter of a mile. At most, and that was, that was a modern place, both of my parents were school teachers. And my siblings were over there, and some of my toys were there, not many, but some of them were over there, and so that was the other half of my existence was at the ranch, so yeah, I was straddling two worlds. And edgefield county, South Carolina, where you were your home. Place where you grew up. I wonder if you would just describe it to me ecologically, which is how you, it feels to me you describe places. I will say I was really intrigued that even when you talked about there's a place you talk about, the political boundaries drawn by human hands, a vegetable county. Give it the appearance on maps of a cartoonish chicken's head. So even then you were making bird analogies. Well, it's an odd place. It's a beautiful place, ecologically, and as edge field is on the edge of the Piedmont or at least portions of it in the upper or inner coastal plain, many different places meet. So there's this sandy ridge, and portions of in southeastern portions of the county that grow the best peaches in the world, Georgia can call itself the peach state, but its mistaken. Glad we've corrected that. Well, South Carolina and specifically on that ridge, the peaches grow, especially sweet, but then where I grew up in up near colliers community, which is sort of smack dab in the middle of the most pied mine of the.

"Edge creature. First of all, by growing up between the homes of his parents and his grandmother who he called mamatha, a quarter mile in distance, but worlds apart in edgefield county, South Carolina. Today, drew lanham lives in Seneca, South Carolina, and is a professor at Clemson university. I brought his voice and perspective north to be part of the 2021 great northern festival in on beings hometown of the twin cities. But we recorded from our respective homes during pandemic lockdown. While here we are, is it true that you're in a writing shed? Yeah, well, yeah, that's what I play it off as it's a little shed called the thicket. It was originally a storage house, and I converted it out of necessity for hoarding stuff that I want to surround me and also to have a little escape pod. So that's where I am today. My story is one of really sort of searching for space constantly because as a child I really didn't have it. I sort of always shared it. I didn't have my own room. I shared my grandmother's bedroom and the bed for a good while until I got bigger and then so this place is, it's the in a way in that Thoreau's Walden was really not very far from. His mother's home and this is the side yard, it's not the backyard, only because I couldn't get it in the backyard. And so it sits like this appendix of a building on the side of the house, but it's important when I don't get out here, I miss it. I want to read what I think are the first lines of the home place, the introduction. You wrote, I am a man in love with nature. I am an eco addict, consuming everything that the outdoors offers in its all you can sense seasonal buffet. I'm a wildling born of forests and fields and more comfortable on unpaved backroads and winding Woodland paths than in any place where concrete asphalt and crowds prevail. You're right also somewhere in the same passage. Why does my blood run wild that's a question you've asked. I just want to ask as we start like how far back and can you even feel it in your body? Does that question and your sense of being this way go? Wow, probably to, I don't know, four or 5 years old, maybe. That point in time when I was given some freedom allowed to wander a little bit beyond my parents I view or my grandmothers, I view so I would think maybe then, but certainly by 6. Because by 6, I was in head start and that kind of thing. And out. And sort of wandering around the yard at least and not long after that had my first bicycle. So I think back to those times with my grandmother and I'm thinking of her throwing out handfuls of grits to what she calls snowbirds that we know is junko's and but sparrows and all these other things. Or her talking about owls being bad omen when they were calling around the house. So most of my life I've thought about things beyond four walls and what was in the Woods or what was roaming in the darkness that I couldn't see, so it's been, it's been a long time. You know, I still think so interesting as I'm talking to you that is becoming clear to me that was just all the way through. I mean, I tried to read as much as I could and there's so much that you bring together in your imagination and your experience and your wisdom that comes together in your life and in your body. That our culture doesn't always bring together. At least overtly. So I mean, one place to kind of dive into that would be the different kinds of influences that you've talked about that form you and that you impart as a teacher, although Leopold and Marvin Gaye, Rachel Carson and Martin Luther King Jr.. Well, Christa, I mean, for me, imagination is kind of this frontier that never ends. I mean, if you're lucky, you get to always walk toward this horizon that's constantly moving away from you. So imagining my life and living and reimagining really the past think about those people who have influenced me. Certainly, out of Leopold is, is among them because I remember picking up his book a sand county almanac and my brother's room. And my brother's room was a place that you ventured into at great peril. Oh, okay. This is a book from 1949. Yeah, from 1949 and I happened to see it on his desk and it had and there were these birds. These geese on the cover. And so I picked up this book and I just sort of flipped through it. I may have even stolen it for a day or two. And fell in love with the words. I fell in love with the illustrations that were there that were just these sketches. And some of that language stuck because I was living some of what he had written in terms of our family living off the land and seeing my father work so very hard to make a life for us. My mother and my father make a life for us off the land, so Leopold stuck there in a way that that wasn't evident to me really until lots of years later. Here's one way you just kind of summarize some of his admonitions that you kept with you to be one of those who can not live without wild things. Keep all the parts, listen to the mountain and preserve the integrity stability and beauty of the biotic community. That says it all, right? Yeah, it's amazing. You know, that if you can sort of hoard experiences, which I think is part of what I do, along with books and other things, but if you can hoard experiences out there, then for me, that informs who I am. So seeing my father burn a piece of land to keep it productive or being out with him when he was cutting a tree and thinking about Leopold's good oak, and thinking about the annual rings in that tree as history and not just how the tree grew, then it helps me understand and sort of refined my place in the past, but also now, and hopefully my students, I asked them to write their own stories about the land their own good oak stories, sort of their own histories, and where they sit in the Pantheon. Yeah. You know, I want to keep going on all of this, but I realized I wanted to ask you also. What was the first bird you fell in love with? We need to kind of, we need to anchor this conversation in that love of yours as well. You know, I go back to those snowbirds to those juncos that would flock in frost and snow. And I would imagine that frost was snow sometimes because I wanted it so badly, but those little gray and white birds that my grandmother was throwing grits to in the sparrows that were out there. So I write in the book about this sorrowful tale of this Christmas tale of a BB gun and a chipping sparrow. And so that, that made a great.

"A good friend of mine, Kevin McGuire became the chief revenue officer at Hulu. When Hulu was just getting off the ground, yeah. Yeah, 2008 when they started a little bit before that but 2008 is when they started hiring a sales team. Remember, there's like 5 of us in a small little conference room a salespeople were like, what are we going to sell? How are we going to sell this? And we were able to build a pretty significant business in a short amount of time. And then from Hulu, I always call this my internship, but 6 of us from Hulu went over to Shazam. If you remember Shazam, the app on your phone and when a song was playing, you can click it, hold it up to the song and then it would tell you what song it was and then you could instantly purchase it, purchase it from iTunes. And we were going to turn that into a media research platform because you could record commercials and you could do some really interesting day partying research. I have to be honest with you glennon and you're gonna be like no way. I'd still be there if things worked out better than they did. We had some really interesting things going before they decided to go in a different direction and then ultimately sell that cell to Apple. But after that internship, which lasted a little over a year, I was fortunate enough to land at Facebook and here I am almost 6 years later. So I'm sure people are going to ask or they may be I'll ask for them. So did you did Mark Zuckerberg interview you or have you met him and you know what's he like or Sheryl Sandberg? What about that? I personally have not had the opportunity to meet Mark Zuckerberg or Sheryl Sandberg. You know, they both have been into Detroit where I live now multiple times. But you know, logistics when those type of executives show up is pretty strong. So I had fortunately have not been had the opportunity. But. The advertising world, as you know, because you live it is actually smaller than people think. And it even gets smaller when you're in a specific town, which I was in Detroit at that point. Right. You know, it's ten plus years, so I knew a lot of the people and they saw where Shazam was going and was fortunate enough to be able to just come over to Facebook. I was on the national business for quite a long time and then as we saw the opportunity with the dealer business, I was fortunate enough to help play a role and get that team going. So let's talk about that team. Where is that team? Is it a remote team? Is it with you in Detroit? Well, it's remote now, obviously, but the majority of the team, I think 95% of the team is in Austin, Texas. Alfred and I are here in Detroit. We used to have another girl, Amanda, here in Detroit, but her husband got transferred to Austin, which worked out perfectly. So she's in Austin. So it's just Alfred and I guess you can consider remote except our Detroit office has about 30 people because remember General Motors Ford and Stellantis are all are all headquartered here in Detroit. So we have teams that cover those OEMs. So Austin and Detroit is where our team is right. How many people do you report to you in terms of a team?.

"To another episode of you're in charge with Glenn cash. Today we are joined by bob lanham head of automotive retail for Facebook. That's right. Facebook. So I want to jump right in, bob. We'll talk about your story in a minute, but I got a question because it's always really intrigued me. In all of your experience, you've been with Facebook for a while and automotive dealerships or any business. What's the biggest either misconception of how to leverage Facebook for advertising purposes or what are some of the biggest mistakes that people are making using Facebook? So either way you want to go. I think the biggest perception that I tend to hear is that there's this perception you need a PhD to be able to understand how to execute Facebook or more importantly what its purpose is. I just think from the beginning it was, it was sold very complicated, right? It's this whole entire platform, you got to have this optimization knowledge and auction knowledge and so on and so forth. And at the end of the day, what we tell dealers is the same strategies you've been running since probably the existence of the dealership are the same strategies that you can run on Facebook, which is a branding strategy, which is an inventory strategy, which is a CRM strategy, right? All these strategies can be done. So when I try what I've been trying to do the past couple of years is just uncomplicated and simplify because it truly is a simple platform. Okay, so now that we got that marketing stuff out of the way. I want to dive into you, because I know, as I said, we are chatting before the podcast we were talking about. I'm sure everybody in their mother wants to pick your brain about marketing and that's all fun. But I want to ask you a couple questions that always intrigue me from the time that I met you was. So how did you end up at Facebook?.

"I didn't start out even playing music until I was sixteen. I had a older brother younger sister that both in the music. Yeah, I wanted to do Sports and so naturally one who ended up in the world music but home, so yeah 16 I started playing guitar really fell in love with it ended up going on studying music at Missouri Western. Okay, and so just had a real passion for music and got a job through the animals give and guitar lessons and then worked in doing part-time sales and from there just you know did a little bit of everything. Yeah and eventually was working forty hours a week telling and part in part. It's Parts. I'm driving a long time. I tell people wanted to do is play the guitar and make music and then now dead. I don't have a whole lot of time to conclude that because yeah busy running a business but my stage we're right here inside of Atlanta music right. Now. This is a new ignition. Yes. Okay. And when do you guys utilize the space? This basically actually started it about probably two weeks before we had to shut down and the idea of going to the right page. So the idea with it was that we were going to do group lessons and things like that. And so like everybody we've had to make adjustments and off on the fly. But while we were sit down and at least they have a project to complete employees to you know, build saves the wall. They went in the lighting and the speaker system and everything and give you time to do that. Yeah, we have that time to get in here sir. We got the to complete it turned out really nice and because so many of our friends that are off. Performing musicians, they don't have any replay right. So we just sort of inviting a musician and every Friday we close at 6, and we have them come in a liquid or six live streaming through our Facebook page. So it was just a nice thing. We could utilize the space. We didn't get to have Rock camping here. That's a big enough room that we can fit at least a handful of people do on the like the 15 to 20 that we were hoping. No. No, usually yeah, basically we'll get to and it's here. Yeah. Yeah, let's here. We are home to utilize it also for doing group from distant learning less. Yes. So one of my employees he studied to be a band director of he plays multiple instruments really well and and he enjoys instructing. So we're in the process of figuring out all the details like the kids who aren't going to be doing school. And this year cuz they're on all we want to try to do that humor. I think mine. So without a band and being able to do that in school. I think you touched me off. Yeah, I hope so. Yeah, and I'm like, yeah give those kids the opportunity to keep making music when they're at home. So yeah, I mean, it's a what a time to do it, right? We're not run around and we're not doing group things. How many other things are in the schoolyard group things, right? And so now I think it's it's awesome. So let's take a little break down of all first of all where we're at address. 2401 North Belt Highway you passive many a times. Yes. Most people I use ice cream shop. We have you guys three. Yeah. We're just north of that on the opposite side of the Bell right across backwards flooring right Anchorage has been there a long time too. So Facebook page. Yes, ma'am. Play the music play the music that usually good age slanted music.com or website. You and on the website. We're able to order things online as well right now. He's actually constructing a new site. So it'll be much better websites So currently as of this week There's not abide on there, but people can at least see what I have in stock could call it can cause yes, so, yeah, we did the curbside pickup all that while we were shut down. So people utilize the site, but hopefully it goes so. I mean, I figure it out. Yeah, I appreciate that. What is the phone number phone number is 816-233-5142. Awesome. Are you ready for your first which first with the early evening at 3? If you could wish for people to know something about this business and what you what you need them to know before they got here you can go when you wish they need before they walked in the door off if this qualifies as an answer, I people seem to be surprised when they find out the different things that we offer. Okay. So I guess I'm a timer city of what we do here. Yes, a lot of times people think of us as a guitar store or just like guitar and drums and but beyond that when you the lessons really rent band instruments, okay, we have a really good sized rental program for being an orchestra gotcha. So that's a big part of business and then audio and video systems. We install those for churches and schools. So you tear the surprise ya know that I get. No, it's good dog. Other than this, how are you telling people about those things? Is that is what website rebuild this for? Is that what how else are you pushing those things out there Thursday? I mean some of it we do a lot of that through our website Facebook page. We we do direct mailers also. Okay, we've done different things. We're home email directly into the churches that will come in and do a pre-assessment fix any kind of buzzing noises or just do it one hour free service, And so yeah most of the time it's Bill. He knows something about audio Yeah, he goes to church there and he'll take care of it. Right? I mean that's people appreciate that cuz they'll kind of money to do those things right but for you to come in there and help them figure out what they need for their free for an hour. I think that's awesome. Yeah. Yeah it just builds up relationship dead. They realize what we have to offer and that we're capable. So yeah, it works out. Well the second which is I mean you didn't build this we probably take us with us. But if there was a place you could move to ideally here there was a different place or there's something else you can do to this building what time you wish physically you can do to make your business better. I wish we have more space really really. Okay. Yeah, I wish the venue space was bigger. Yeah, I mean this is really nice. But I think there's lots of room to stand and we seem a little bit cramped with our storage like I mentioned our band and Orchestra rental program. I've already had to take over one of our lesson rooms with Charles in a 4 available is and cellos gotcha. So I think the biggest thing I'm real happy with where we are on the Belt Highway happy with the.
