How Republicans Could Lose the Missouri Senate Seat

"Eric Erickson. Undermine big radio guy on news nation with our pal Leland last night, cut number 18. Eric, because you just have such a unique understanding of Republican politics, I want to get you on this. The Senate race in Missouri largely seen as a primary race between the attorney general there and the former governor there who had resigned in disgrace. His name's Eric brightons. Hugh Hewitt about his prominent of a Republican radio host as there is, president company excluded talk to president Trump earlier today about Brighton's take a listen. It's an endorse Eric greitens. That's a nightmare, mister president. We'll lose that seat. But that's Hugh Hewitt's opinion, not yours. Well, that's an interesting opinion. That's true. He's right now leading by quite a bit. I know, but we'll lose the seat. We will lose this. Okay. No people feel that. The president doesn't seem convinced, but it brings up this issue. How worried should Republicans be when they've got these great opportunities like the Latino poll that president Trump comes in and endorses primary candidates who have no chance of winning in the general? There's real worry. You've got Eric Schmidt near Greg and the battle of lyrics commented on now by Eric. And Schmidt is the attorney general. He's doing fairly well in the polls. Great and does well with the base because he's perceived to be victimized. He was hounded out of office while he was governor. But that's a problem because he Missouri does have a very independent minded base of voters headed into the general election. Eric is right. Look, I got nothing against right and except he melted down on this show and I asked him very straightforward questions. Eric crichton was about to be impeached because of his treatment of a woman in his basement who he found gag and according to her engagement unconscious intimate activity. He was wrongly prosecuted, I believe, by a craze left wing democratic prosecutor in St. Louis. But he just it's a disaster in a campaign. I know this stuff. I've been doing this a lot longer than almost anyone. If brightens at the nominee, in fact, Democrats will try and get right into be the nominee. I don't know who's gonna win. They're about 700 people on that. Eric Schmidt is tied with Eric greitens right now in the most reputable poll, but Billy long might get Donald Trump's endorsement. There are a couple other Congress people who are running. I'm just telling you Eric crichton's take a seat off the table. Democrats are going to control the Senate. They control the Senate. They can put anyone they want on the Supreme Court.

Why the Virginia Governors Race Is the Prelude to the Midterms

"News. Now Leland, the reason I wanted to talk to you is because I need to know how you are covering the Virginia governor's race. I'm spending a lot of time on it. I'm a Virginia voter. I've already voted for Gwen young and but I think it has a national significance. I think it's in very important bellwether of what's going on. What are you doing about the Virginia governor's race? Are you covering it closely? Everything we possibly can and it's fascinating and you brought this up is just yesterday we were talking about coming to Virginia to do the show in Virginia before election night and then on election night because it is so critical and you think about what's happening in Virginia, which was a Biden plus ten state and now is a toss up essentially between young and Terry mcauliffe and you have to turn the call off admitting what a problem Joe Biden's agenda is for him in Virginia. And then you think about what happened in 2009 when you had then president Obama, vice President Biden, and you had a Republican win the Virginia governor's race. What that sort of foreshadowed for the midterms I had a guy on, you know very well here, which is Larry sabado from the Virginia center of politics. And he said, for all the talk about the 2022 midterms, really what we need to be focused on is a 2021 midterm that occurs November 2nd in

Up to 15,000 Americans Remain in Afghanistan After Taliban Takeover

"Your credential foreign correspondent leland. And i want to dial in on the fifteen thousand americans stranded in kabul and throughout the country. What would you be doing right now. If any of these foreign deployments the united states had bugged out without notice and left you catastrophically high and dry. What would you actually do. Well depends on where you are in afghanistan because the taliban controls everything minus a couple of hundred yards around the airport and what. We're hearing so much from afghanistan. Right now is that it's all well and good that the us controls the airport but a lot of the planes are leaving half full or a third full because people can't get into kabul and then into the airport and you think about afghanistan being the size of texas. So yes if you were at one of the foreign news bureaus inside kabul and you were able to get the airport. You get to the airport and you get out. Though that there's a number of other reporters everything who believe that they have ways to get to the airport and get out and or reporting from inside the perimeter if you will but still able to report if you're in the countryside of afghanistan in one of these fifteen thousand americans who's who's out there whether you are mich- arear contractor or whatever you were you a really in harm's way in a effectively the only thing protecting six thousand american soldiers on the ground and kabul the fifteen thousand americans around afghanistan is the goodwill of the taliban and those are those are some lousy people to have to rely on

This is the basis of this story is a unit and it's actually going back to nineteen sixty nine and south vietnam where a a unit goes missing another unit is sent to investigate and they come up the compound.

And let's see where i can go from there and originally it was supposed to be a A zombie story. But i started looking at the The fiction and the movies. That scared me the most and it was always some type of demonic possession. And i was like well you know if i enjoy that i think other people will enjoy a too so the really were came about.

The way they talk is really me. And my friends just conversations we had things we thought were funny or terrified us. You know the things. We were ashamed to admit that we were afraid of talking amongst ourselves we would never admit in public but those are the things that you'll find in the book well and really what's also interesting. Is that it come across a person who has certain skills that could help them out talk about her a little bit and how she kind of plays into story. So i'm not really spoiling anything you find out A lot of her story in the first chapter but So my wife and her family were living in vietnam during the war and You know they were displaced and hearing her story. was terrifying in and of itself. I wanted to have a character on the front line with the military guys. That wasn't a military character who had their own hopes dreams essentially shattered by collateral damage. Essentially and i think that just added another horror element to the story. But you know some of the other stuff I might spoil the story if i give it away. So however she's she's not vietnamese. Her family are hiding And keeping a secret in vietnam well you know. Her story is being displaced also humanizes. The story in crowns in more. And that's so important because you have to relate to what's going on because it's an unusual circumstance. Obviously when you were writing. That was part of what you wanted to do right. Yeah and the main character brandon. He kind of acts as a standard for all someone the non-military americans i guess who had read the book You know he's not skilled. He's he's very much a yes man sent by the cia to quote unquote. Keep keep the enlisted men in line So the thoughts that he has Being inexperienced and being thrown in with a very specialized inexperienced unit. I think that i think that also humanizes it in allows readers to comfortably step in to the book. You know following a character who doesn't know when they themselves don't know the specifics of military tactics..

"Well hello everyone and welcome to another podcast from frames magazine my name is scott olsen and today i have an absolute thrill we are talking with doug hill. Doug is a corporate photographer. A fine art photographer. His work has been all over the place. It's in magazines books. Catalogues it's at the j. Paul getty museum the library of congress the museum of photographic arts in huntington library. You know of course for his work at frames a very active member of the community. Doug welcome how's everything out in los angeles today. Thank you very much scott. It's a pleasure to be here today. It's probably seventy five degrees and sunny but we're on stay at home orders though. I'm stuck in the office at the moment. Oh th that's a shame because seventy five degrees and sunny out in los angeles. That's a photographer's dream. That's what everybody hopes for. You could get that beautiful light out there does. There is so much that. I wanna talk to you about your photography there. There's so much about this. That i find really impressive and enlightening but i got to begin at the beginning i i really wanna know. How in the world did you get from being you know the seven year old with instamatic up to a world class corporate and fine art photographer. I got started. I got my first series camera niagara matt and the reason that i got it was that i was going out with someone who was very interested in pursuing an acting career. And the well. Here's a perfect opportunity. I'll have a model someone that i can work with them. And start to figure out how the camera work then actually worked out pretty well straight off the bat and i had access to actors and actresses drew agents and producers and folks like that so i began doing head shots and i did that for several years but after awhile i began to burn out on. I certainly loved working with people but there was something about the process of shooting. That was kind of growing stale. So i started looking around for other things that i could do with a camera. I had been interested as a kid in architecture. Thought i might even become an architect at one point except that there was way too much math involved and I i got a four by five. Large format camera and began shooting buildings that interested me but didn't know what to do next with it so i started calling all of the architectural photographers. The serious ones in the area Maybe a dozen people. It was before the the field had really burgeoned. I call them all Asking if they need assistance most of them alike. We said no including julius schulman said nad on the internet system Recommended a guy named leeland lee who had been his assistant for a number of years especially through the period when julius was at the height of his powers and he said you talked to leland and i have confidence that that that may work out. I called leyland. Leland was gracious enough to say sure. Come on by. I showed him some of my work. He said well. This isn't very good Which was but i thought. Okay i'll i'll plough on. But he said you know what. I can use an assistant and you're welcome to to start doing that. If it interests you so it did very much. And i learned an incredible amount from him working with him in the first year that i got to know him and i started to pick up clients and found that i really enjoyed the work. I enjoyed working at a much. Slower pace It was hard work physical work. There's a lot more lighting. The cameras were larger and heavier. It required an attention to detail that i discovered i. I really enjoyed so. I stuck with architecture photography for many years at the same time. It's doing some fine art. I had gone to ucla and studied there. And and also cal arts. So i i was sort of on these two tracks one being the commercial architectural work and the other being fine art.

What happened To Jack Ma

"Development between chinese companies in the. Us is only part of the larger tech story in china. Late in two thousand twenty. China joined the us in europe in a global big tech reckoning when it released series of proposals to rein in the chinese fintech sector new rules on how online leaders could operate and the government increased scrutiny on players like ten cents at jd dot com in an effort to curb anti competitive behaviour. Then china effectively blocked would become the largest ipo ever. A public listing. The chinese fintech aunt group shortly thereafter china's markets regulator opened antitrust probe into e commerce giant alibaba aunt groups largest shareholder and one of the most valuable tech firms in the world amid all this chinese officials had met jack. Ma co founder of ant group and co founder and former chairman of alibaba. He's still one of companies largest shareholders. He's china's biggest business. Celebrity enriches tech tycoon. He's regarded globally as a symbol of china's success up until recently he was a pretty visible character. Even starring as a judge on a popular reality show. But jack ma hasn't been seen publicly two months. We're all starting to wonder where he's gone back in october. A financial forum in shanghai mom spoke out against chinese regulators claiming they're conservative approach hindering innovation. He envisions a different financial system for china. Global onlookers are growing more and more concerned at the chinese communist party would rather those visions remain unrealised. Here's becky quick. joining us. Right now is leeland. Miller china beige book international. Ceo and leland. Obviously it's just speculation at this point but it does come after. Some clearly heightened tensions between jack ma alibaba and chinese regulators. Yeah i mean the question right now is whether jack is is managing a very low profile for his own good or whether he's been brought in a dark room in his having new terms of alibaba dictate to him. A nobody knows nobody will know until till the government comes out with a statement I think right now you know. Jack is sort of muttering himself. Oops and it's oops on some of the things he's done in recent months in terms of antagonizing government regulators but this is something that the alibaba ecosystem has been something that has been antagonizing state banks and the state run financial system for years and years. So it's it's not altogether surprising that he's he's become under more pressure right now and he has a target on his back now that he's been completely vulnerable. You're not talking about the retail side of alibaba. You're talking about the financial side what they've been doing. And why don't you explain that a little bit to people why it's such a threat to the chinese banking system. This is a point that That i've made years ago when alibaba. Cbs's guest commentator for the alibaba ipo in two thousand fourteen and everyone was talking about spectacular. This company is and it's true. It's spectacular innovative companies. But the is alibaba's not one company. It's actually two companies It is a retail firm. Which is a chinese national champion. I think that's what people think of when eight when they think of alibaba most of the time. But it's also a giant financial firm and it has been innovating behind the scenes of chinese finance for years whether it's on my mutual funds whether it's e payments these are systems that have been beating the tar out of the state banking system. Alibaba for yle was allowed through you. It's it's mutual fund to to offer these very very high rates where the state banking system couldn't and over time china beige book. You can see that. There's been migration deposit flight from the state banks over the alibaba system. So jack has got an enormous number of people who really dislike him inside the chinese banking system and this is a problem that happens in beijing step in and they'd regulate the alibaba are force them to bring the rates down but this has been a tension not for months but for years. So so this is this. Is jack finding himself. Boehner and having lot of enemies on the inside leland. Just in terms of of what that means for the chinese population. I mean it's it's a good thing. It's it's helped so many people in china who wouldn't have been able to get loans otherwise wouldn't have been able to do some of those things so i have a hard time thinking that that in itself has been the biggest problem or why the communist party might down on him But you know some of the things that he said very recently have been incredibly antagonistic. Just in terms of things you're not allowed to say in china that he said right in one rule is you don't antagonize the chinese communist party and expect good things to happen but but look wall. What alibaba has been doing been innovative. It's been good for chinese consumers and households and the chinese economy keep in mind the vested interests that are affected by this. You have these technocrats. Bureaucrats have the bankers who have watched their their fiefdom less and less important over time. and so even. If this is good for china writ large. This is a real question. Mark to where the banking system falls in this new world order now. If jack had his way he was sweep the banking system aside and replace it so it may be good for china. But it's not good for a lot of party. People who are in the top of the power chain which means that jack better tread carefully at this point. It's raised a lot of questions about what this means for international companies trying to do business in china whether they be tech companies or something else but we also have at the same time the nyse announcing that it is not going to move forward with its plans to deliver those three. Chinese companies says it did this after having discussions with regulators. But you've got to think it's it's got more to do with who's going to be in the oval office come january twentieth a biden administration versus a trump administration. What what does the setup for just in terms of the us relationship with china. Yeah look i don't think biden particularly wants to touch this issue so he's keeping his hands off it but this is really about inattention by the trump team. I mean they put a rule in place and they sort of went off and pay no attention. You know certain certain agencies like treasury behind the scenes hoping to weaken this. And and that's what they did and so if you don't if you put out a bunch of rules and then you don't fall through on them. You're going to have a lot of questions over how they should be interpreted and at this point. They're so little clarity on what the administration was asking for. And what the executive orders called for and and what executive orders in the pipeline. That these That nyse in and a bunch of other financial entities basically said. We don't understand what's going on here and we're not going to implement them and they got soft backing behind the scenes from treasury not to implement them and so here you are. Everything is sort of falling apart in terms of some of these latest trump moves in the last days of the trump administration. Bring them back to what investors might be looking for. Is this a situation. Where manufacturing companies anybody. Who's making things that they're selling Either from china or to china. How is this going to play out. You have any ideas. I think that the biden administration has come in with severe restraints in terms of what they can do. They want to use political chits. They have on domestic issues. They they know that biden has had years and years and years of being called week on china when he was vice president. And so they're not gonna be able to do any heavy lifting on the china side particularly in the early days. So i think that from this standpoint biden wants to sort of he won't be able to pointing back he doesn't want to do a whole lot. And so you know you're going to be on a glide path at least until he gets both staff in you know three to six months from now but in terms of investment with china. This really has to play out. The chinese are certainly gonna come in and try to have a honeymoon. Period with a biden administration promising kinds of climate goodies. The question is who are going. To policymakers. That are gonna be in charge of china policy for for for the biden administration. And are they going to have authority within his realm in order to push back congress for certainly be at their backs but but this is some this issues. These china issues. That i think biden would like to ignore for as long as possible in his first six months. There are a lot of china hawks in congress. That would probably make that pretty difficult to ask. What what should we be watching. What are the key points or the key events. A lot of it has to whether whether cova continues to to suck all the oxygen out of the room you know code will be will be issue number one. But you're right on congress you're gonna you know you have some very fire. Republicans you also some fire. Democrats who who are who are who are quite animated on the china issue. There's a bipartisan agreement. Right now that china needs to be dealt with rather rather tough fashion. So i think that you're going to have a lot of pressure from congress. Which is why i think biden wants to have nothing to do with it. He's gonna let some a lot of some of the trump stuff glide he's gonna want to avoid the issue as much as possible. It's going to become harder and harder. As the beijing olympics comes into sight year and a half from now There is going to be a lot of push both domestically internationally to boycott the olympics A year plus from now and this is going to become extremely hot topic not yet but later this year and so i think he's got a pass for at least a few months but later this year. I think it's going to get a lot lot lot tougher on the environment on china again. I can't believe the olympics in beijing are only a year and a half or so away. A leland it's good to talk to you. We will see him

Do you do you get any information that parts of tracks in advance or is it a case of you turn up at the street? The finished he's here the track to play them I would say ninety five percent of the time I don't know what I'm working on until I walk in the door. Orillia. Anything in advance So I don't know I don't even know the genre necessarily I it could be country could be funk it could be you know jazz it could be anything and that was really the. The fascinating part because I, never really thought I was going to be a studio musician. You know I I was in college studying to be a dealer a technical, maybe a medical illustrator. And my real aptitude was science in art and I always played music and I was figured out what play music but I didn't anticipate that I would actually have a career at it So. Once we started with James, and never really been in a studio before in all of a sudden I was doing four sessions day. You know six days a week and and we we're basically teaching ourselves how to be studio musicians on the job. But over the course of the years every once in a while like somebody might send something say maybe check this out and see what you think. Nowadays it's more difficult because so many people have home studios that when they're getting ready to do. The record they spent a year making their demos and then you'll suddenly here it sounds like a Finnish record already where like with James He would sit and play Guitar Jackson would play Guitar Piano and we would figure all our parts out people sit around now trying to figure them all up.

"Bit about you. The person behind the work in the behind the strategy on the business one of my favorite questions. I ask you know. Is there an experience of your past that defines or makes up who you are today so I think the easy answer would be to say like the company that helped co found? But I'll pass on that one. I'll actually go back to something a long time ago. I think I was in second grade. My teacher is named miscued. Vicky and I remember we were drying in class and the class twenty kids and stuff and it was something for Thanksgiving. I think we're joined place MATS FOR OUR FAMILY. Thanksgiving and I was drying a scene of these children's native American sitting at a table. Eating there's four isn't clouds and there was a sunset and the sunlight was hitting the clouds turning them. You know like a combination of orange and red and stuff and sort of romantic setting that second grader. Could draws good and I remember Miss Bixby. Picking up my artwork. I was so completely confused why she did that. And walking into the back of the room and showing it to what was our teacher and I was so confused why they were talking over this thing that drone and looking at me and pointing at me I actually thought I was in trouble or something and I later. I later came to learn that that was the first moment when not my parents had recognized my artistic ability and what ended up happening was the school ended up. Creating a special class essentially was just me with teacher than art teacher that they brought in to work with me on art and stuff like that and for some reason. That's always stuck with me because I think that was the first time that I really felt that I was talented at something in that somebody recognized that talent the end. It's always stuck with me like I still. I still remember the clouds and stuff and I so remember what the classroom look like and stuff. I think everybody has had or should have one of those moments where they feel like. They've been plucked out for having something or doing something special because other people have taken notice and want to help you with that. So it's one of those things that I think from a very early stage in my life getting a lot of confidence that I had something exciting ahead of me. I love the moment in the in the detail. That you you you you can almost see little leland sitting there in the classroom as you described. It will now that we're talking about your younger self. What advice would you give your younger self? Maybe NOT SECOND GRADE. But maybe if you're just starting your career again what would you do different or what would you say how man pardon me is like well? I'm very happy with how my career has progressed. Where I am and stuff so on one hand nothing but on the other hand trillions of the question. I think the thing that because of who I am. I love absorbing information and I love knowledge and I love learning and I love kind of building my brain as if it was a by stepped right instead. What I've learned over a period of time is that that's important and that should always be a lifelong thing. But when you over invest in your brain and you underinvested building relationships in a network around you your brain at a certain point in your life doesn't matter anymore no matter how much knowledge you have doesn't matter because you don't have networks to activate that knowledge so the advice that would have to my younger self is invest in building relationships in a network as much as you invested building. Your brain will on a personal note. Are there Brands or companies or causes the youth. Feel you follow or you think other people should be taking notice A. I don't really pay attention to my industry much to be honest with you. There certainly are brands and companies. Doing amazing stuff out there. No question but I and more fascinated by things that happened away from our industry and taking those learnings and those experiences and those references and drawing upon them when I'm trying to crack probably within my industry. That's what I get really excited about like. I'm I'm deeply fascinated with a more scholarly study of Greek mythology right now and the city of Athens from government and cultural standpoint. And I'm finding so much in those studies. That are fueling what I'm doing my professional life much more. So than if I were reading a trade obligation or case studies or anything like that the Example may have heard people say that before but not to that degree you know they. They may say well you know. I remember somebody early on in the in the podcast. You know working for a CPT company said you know really paying attention to entertainment brands. I thought yeah Outside category thinking what's with moving people to consume over and over on entertainment platform if you will but I've never. I don't think I've seen somebody take it to that level of going back in time and studying other civilizations or other other structures if you will so that's fascinating thanks for sharing that and it's not even that like in my career. I spent ten years deeply fascinated by systems dynamics and that has informed a lot a lot of how I think about designing departments designing businesses. Now that's fascinating will last question for you a little bit closer to marketing than the city of Athens. It just curious your top of mind. What do you feel like is either the largest opportunity or the biggest threat that's facing marketers today? The biggest threat is the diminishment of creativity. I think creativity is in many ways under attack. Because it's not measurable and if all marketers both client side and otherwise continue to move towards only things that are measurable we will exist in a world of just optimization and be stuck in paths and never be able to evolve out of them. There's a lot of people believe that when they find success you have to keep measuring it to optimize against it but what that doesn't do is it doesn't help you realize whether you've found success on small mountain or a big mountain and if you can get to the top of that success are you. Is that really? The tallest mountain you can be standing on and creativity is one of those things which helps you find the biggest and there needs to be much more emphasis not on the -sarily just disproving that performance marketing is filled with flaws transparency issues and trust issues and stuff though. I think that is an important realization that everybody needs to have but there needs to be more emphasis on the positive meaning putting into creativity and understanding of. How do you measure like? There's one thing that I'm a fascinated with right now. I have no idea where it's going. But there's a thing in mass called indirect proof the idea of proving something by proving disproving the contrarian or showing that the contrary the contradictory or that proof is false. I don't fully understand what I'm sort of learning about it right now. But what's interesting to me about it? Is that creativity is is very difficult to measure no question. I tend to think of creativity as a bit of a black hole in the sense that you know it's there and it's happening enormous impact on everything around it. But you can't see it so what you do is you measure everything around it to understand if the where the black holes are in a way. I think that's kind of the same thing with creativity. Tried to directly measure creativity the way you directly measure sales or you directly measure media efficiency. You'RE GONNA fail because it doesn't work that way and so. Is there a different approach to measuring creativity? That isn't the same paradigm that we've applied to measuring other direct things and so this idea of mathematics have an indirect proof is a way of measuring something or maybe not even measuring something proving the validity of something by without directly proving. And so. That's something that I've only recently begun my investigation just to try to understand how that works but there needs to be a very concerted effort to understanding the impact of the Roi of creativity in organizations and in a way that is unique to creativity as opposed to taking the metrics of sales which is transactional and applying that to creativity which is not transactional and saying did creativity have an Roi. Because it's not just about marketing. It's really about entrepreneurs it's really about value-creation it's really about innovation. It's really about building entrepreneurial resilient creative cultures which is whatever. Ceo Wants Right now so. I think if you unlock that measurement or that way of validating creativity. It's not just about did the campaign worker not or is bringing in creative smart strategic creative professional's enhancing our bottom line. It's really about much much more than that and so I think that's an opportunity that I wish. More people in the marketing industry would agree agree.

"Today. On the show I talked to Leland. Mosh Meyer. Leland's bend the chief creative officer of Shabani since two thousand sixteen in two thousand nineteen. His role is expanded to be the chief creative and strategy officer. He's a World Economic Forum Young Global Leader and also the CO founder and former CO chief officer at Collins renowned design firm on the show today Leland and I take on what he's doing. Giovanni and this unbelievable creative organization that he's not leading at the company. You talk about some recent campaign work as well as just the LAS affi on design and business and the intersection between those two things. You don't WanNa miss this episode with Leland the Sinon Leland. Welcome to the show. Thank you for having me. Yeah we've had dinner together. We've Kinda got to know each other through a webinar experience. I'm excited to have you on the podcast. Finally so one of the things. I thought we could just start with. Is I know you went to school at UNC? But we've never talked about where you're from. Where are you from? Yeah I wish I had a good story behind this. But it's pretty straightforward I was born in Knoxville Tennessee and grew up in a small town called Alfa Reta Georgia Okay okay but a southern kid to start your roots before moving to the big city. Yes very proud to be center. There you go I can sense it. Just a tiny tiniest bit in your voice not much. But it's it's there it's that Southern SOUTHERN GENTLEMAN EDGE. That makes me happy. I never have had a very strong southern accent. Both my parents also grew up in the south and Virginia and Mississippi and Arkansas. They don't have strong accents either so whenever I tell people. I'm from the south. They are very abused. Most people think I'm California at a lot of people think Europe which is always strange to hear. But I'm like I actually wish I had a very southern accent but alas my my life did not go that way. It's funny it's funny. There's there's another guy that's been on this show. I believe he's also from Knoxville Jay Livingston you guys both live in New York now. He's the CMO at all. My Gosh just went out of my head was at Bark and bark box and now he is at the famous hamburger chain. Why can think of the name of it shake shack shake shack yes? He's the simos check so to Knoxville. Guys KNOXVILLE's work way up in the world. Yeah exactly exactly so well. Let's talk about your career. Where'd you get your start in? What was the path to becoming chief creative officer Shabani so coming out of college I actually freelanced in design for a while for maybe about a year or two and then ended up getting a job at midsize ad agency in North Carolina called the Kenny where I had intern during college. I didn't have a portfolio like an advertising portfolio. So they wouldn't hire me as a creative but I was also really fascinated with the strategy side of the creative communications world and so I ended up taking a job as a strategist for a few years. Moved up the ranks. There then decided that while advertising was a lot of fun I really enjoyed. It learned a lot about the business of creativity. I really missed design and wanted to get back into that. And so through. A series of fortunate events ended up meeting a gentleman named Brian Collins and he and I just immediately clicked with each other and decided to start a new design firm with each other and so we were both co founders of the design from Collins in New York City and I had done that or almost a decade when Shabani called me and while Shabani was a much lesser known smaller company. At the time I was really fascinated by the opportunity I saw there which was not so much just to go and be the first chief creative officer of Shibani but to apply design to organizational transformation because Shabani had huge ambitions. They were at the time. Mainly just selling Greek yogurt and a lot of people didn't even know how to pronounce the name of all the Kobani so I was really fascinated with that idea and I'd also come to a point in my career where I didn't WanNa sing the songs that other people wrote. I wanted to write the music myself. I wanted to really be able to own a whole brand soup to nuts and so the Shabani opportunity offered that and it was a really exciting unique opportunity that I jumped on that training and was excited to see where it took me. You jumped on the train and and you made it into a flying jet. I think you've built one of the most successful internal agencies. I think in the world. I don't think that's a stretch. I think that's real and I'd love to just hear like where'd you start? How did you do that? And why is it effective for you while I thank you I? You know I'll I'll probably coach on the very first thing that I did was when I was trying to understand the business situation of the company. I started realizing like Oh. This is not only stuff that I've done for a lot of other companies but this is also familiar to my own experience creating my own design firm and I always approached it. Not as how do I build an internal agency but how do I transform Shabani into a creatively driven culture and so a big part of it was telling some of the people that I adopted some project manager so production designers that it was going to get a lot worse before it got better? And that was it. It's probably not the most motivating thing in the world. But I think everyone needed to really understand that. Change requires going through periods of destruction periods of learning periods of being unknown and stuff and so really setting the table early on that if we were going to truly become one of not just the best in-house creative capabilities but one of the best creative capabilities in the country. We were going to have to go through a lot of growing pains so that was the very thing I did because I knew that from my own experience. Starting my design firm there was a lot of startup struggles and startup costs associated with it. The other thing that I did was because a manufacturing culture is different than a creative culture. I had to do a lot of translating and luckily I was working with some really fantastic people that I had recruited like Wami Taylor offered me Smith who were instrumental in helping me communicate. How building a creative capability was different than just building another department. So there's a lot of high tides a lot of conversations. A lot of explanation about why payment terms could it be the same for production companies when we worked with them as it was for other vendors that company work with why salary bands were different recruited professionals than they were for other market professionals? Why we needed so much headcount to do something. That on paper seemed so simple. This was all just stuff that the organization just didn't understand because it didn't have experienced building this type of stuff. There were luckily some people in the HR Department who had worked in organizations that had created capabilities before so pathetic to it and stuff so the next step as it sounds like it was about building alliances through trust building and education things like that and then after that it was a typical startup journey. You try to find your what is typically called product markets that. But you try to do that within an existing organization. What's the most important work that we can be doing? What's the most impactful work we can be doing? How do we track it? How do we prioritize it followed by? How do we also not just service where the company is right now? But how do we also start to build the future of where this company can go and so along part of the process while we were building team while we were figuring out process was trying to build the future of Shabani while also servicing where the company was at that moment so a lot of people don't understand this but while we were building the plane we were not just flying a plane? We are trying to fly planes? The future of Shabani in the present day of Shibani and again luckily because we're able to set expectations early. Because we're able to kind of put on paper what the journey was going to look like. People understood why they were working extra long. They understood why they were difficulty. They understood why a process that we put in place on. Monday was all of a sudden up ended on Wednesday completely. New Process. Put is just a lot of learning exploration and experimentation and then the last thing L. Sanderson Bingo could say about this but the last thing I'll say is this from day one. We did not want.

"We help I am I have done some Leland Cyprus trees in the yard and in this to make it short and sweet the the the them well that made all the trees one of them is started turning brown and and so I'd like to know what is the cause of that now this could be one of two things there was a drought that occurred like in the fall of last year and a lot of them just became really stressed with the drought so hopefully if we just take the easy route and think that that may be it there's not anything you can do a lot of them will green back up we've kind of Walter and I've kind of noticed this pattern over the last few months so that could be but if you really want to get down in there and check for US radium tanker that is something that is quite common in Leland Cyprus as well what you want to do you see the canker damage if you skin back the bark with a pocket knife you'll be able to kind of see that closer to the where the the branch the limb meets the tree so that might be something you want to look carefully into as well because once the cake is infecting the tree there's not a whole lot you can do at that point you can cut out some of the limbs on the drive back you know to slow it maybe but there's just no fungicide there's no nothing that you can do so is that something you want a little more carefully into that might be good a one of them and is started see in that and maybe I'd heard about that before the the the canker thing that you mentioned and but in a cut a couple limbs all and the one tree and you know that that helped it and it's it's not that way but one of the other trees is just about completely brown so probably needs to be cut down yeah yeah that will probably not bounce back unfortunately once an evergreen is gone like that so yeah it it sounds to me maybe it's just a drought so I would kind of maybe just you know make sure it stays evenly water throughout these cold months and just hope that it's going to bounce back a little bit and for anybody that's looking to plant Leland Cyprus they're so popular of course is like a privacy a screening you know tree as well as just shallowly routed you got a water deeply so yeah I think you might be okay Mike all right thank you great thank you have a good weekend you enjoy stay warm four oh four eight seven two zero seven fifty so visit Walter Reeves dot com if you want to know more about what's really in canker looks like so many of us want to do anything we can to protect our Leland Cyprus they're so important of course you don't want to cut him down because they're gonna take a long time to come back if you have to plant new ones and using them as a privacy had so speaking a Walter Walters wondering that's something that we know our friend does and he wants to learn about the world around him so recently had a conversation with Walter about something he wanted to share with us wondering Walters.

"Common sense Leland Conway on newsradio wait forty WHAS gives you just decide to go with like the creepy weird news of the day we got a guy that killed in eight is girlfriend and another guy that sun bathing in his backyard a body falls out of this guy get the text we are sure what the story was behind this fella deciding to go for all of they all flights in in the land in the land expires one cold flight right there yeah no doubt so how did he fall out I mean when when the landing gear open maybe he froze to death inside of it or something and then landing gear opened and well I open or closed I think at that altitude you can of your head you'll be dead there's no yeah you know they're out there feet yeah yeah you're not in that category so he was probably yeah he was probably dead and then when the landing gear open he just fell out yes and very cold sure yeah yeah that's because the grisly scene there it really kinda is a pure lan in your backyard just sunbathing wow boys sons beautiful today for the week I've heard of other things falling out of airplane yeah but not like sometimes it's right yeah meteorites and stuff fall from the sky but that would be that would ruin my day I got if I if a body just fell out of the sky and landed right next we had that would that ruin my day so is your first thought is word accorded to come from you know don't you don't see the plane up there you just yet all from the sky crap Superman lost his battle hers it's just anyway not funny guy died but still anyway weird news today so I'll let's get back to it maybe find some more normal okay so we'll do crack thanks Paul guy killed need his girlfriend and then that all kinds of weird stuff going on I we got to pull up right now on Twitter I actually have two poles and they're both still running there was a story out of Israel yesterday that scientists have figured out a way to possibly choose the gender of your child before they're born what so they could does this leave you go I want a boy the kid I guess do some kind of genetic rigmarole with it and it be a girl or a boy or you so the question that I asked on Twitter was would what would if you could choose would you now hello now do you think that do you think it's another yes absolutely this is this is in the mall okay you're you're not you're not stopping shop you're not going down the aisle picking a baby I need some yoga pants new shoes then we'll have a girl and a boy both of the twins now I know that's coming right you know that that's coming like to medic engineering of our it's Gatica is here but I do it's here yeah have you seen that movie no no I have got to get the I want to give away too much but the plot line is all the all the rich people's babies are engineered and the poor people become into a permanent underclass because there less than perfect there's a poor kid who wants to be an astronaut but you can't because they have a caste system in the future you know only the perfect smart rich kids get to be the astronauts on this poor kid is always wanting to be an astronaut so he faked it he fake being a smart kid he had to change the color of his eyes and all this kind of stuff and it's at the story it's it's very dystopian that's coming that's what's coming I mean they're going to be able to genetically engineer a lot of the health problems out of our bodies and we're gonna be able to pick the color of the eyes the color of the hair and tone of the scan and the sax and probably some of the personality traits and all those things that it does make it ethical well the question then is is it's still human right but what right element of you what element of humanity is played by chance a ton or or or in my opinion I would say a lot well in my opinion god creates us any creates us all with the plan which is why you know people that believe like I do tend to be against abortion because I believe that once the child is conceived there's now a plan for that child's life per god and when humans intervene in that so what happens if we intervene we change the entire make up of the human being and god had a plan for but now we've altered its personality and we've altered everything that makes it who it is you will have blemishes and and flaws and those flaws and blemishes can make or break us but they're part of our character yeah they make us who we are yeah the things we have to overcome our insecurities those things we have to overcome those things is part of what builds who we are it's all part of I think god's plan challenges that we face all that kind of stuff so I don't know I it's far as gender though I guess some of this I guess I'm gonna go with your point of view on this I mean it depends on how early they're able to make the alteration I guess I mean it's really just a matter of do the I I don't exactly know how all that process happens what causes it to be a boy verses the girl but I tend to lean towards chance only let let me ask you this let's say the doctor comes to you you're expecting a kid and they say you have serious health issues with this child there is going to be an issue and less you have to go in and make changes yourself change the genetic code of your child interfering with the gods plan mentality that you're thinking about would you go ahead and leave it to chance leave it to god's plan yeah that's tough all right well low but a personal story here I was born with the major physical challenges which were overcome but there was a high chance when I was born that I would not be a normal healthy person I ended up being a normal healthy person in my parents and I believe that that was because of god's intervention but I was born with him major physical challenges that you know most people are born with those physical challenges do not go on to be the grub normal healthy so again her that's why we think it was a miracle that being said had a few could have avoided those things would you yeah I mean that that's a hard call I mean I here's the way I look at it you can go down that road along way right like you can say well we weren't meant to have brain surgery right because until we have the technology we couldn't do that and take a tumor out of a brain you would just have to die and yet we do now have it and we consider that to be part of god's is a Christian you would consider that to be part of god's plan that we as intelligent human beings develop these things and that god can use Matt modern medicine to be part of the healing process if you believe the way I believe you can believe that god brought uses modern medicine to be part of the healing process so could you apply that there if you say this child's gonna have cancer but we can alter this gene and they're only gonna live three years but we can alter this change will be perfectly healthy could that also be part of god's plan that that's modern medicine that allows for the healing of that child or participates in the healing of that's all right being born at this time in life where there is technology to be able to cure something like that so you could go on to live a life part of part of god's plan but then we get down to the word this is great this is an interesting conversation now you dig down a little bit farther you like I when we start talking about personality traits we're not talking about we're not talking about physical to I'm sure there's a lot of people to disagree with someone I'm saying here too because we're all gonna have thoughts on this but Hey email me Leona WHAS are calmer Texas five a two to three oh six five six five I would think that like to me I was sort of draw the line of personality traits and perhaps what we go to gender right it's like that that's that's all part of who you are and I know that so is the physical thing but you know me being born with a set of physical challenges that were over com and completely eliminated is part of who I am and part of my character in so and part of my page part of my parents are too because having to walk through that so it's that's part of their character so it's like however that diagnosis is dealt with is not the same as changing somebody's personalities that that makes sense personality and gender it is that's the diff the basic definition of who you are right now I think we're here's the things that happened to you and how those help develop now then you know point to that is that when you're choosing a child's gender I feel like that's more of a luxury you know there there's you know there's a life or death on the line you're just deciding that you want to have a boy or a girl you want to paint the walls pink or blue that's kind of a you know something that you can make that decision if you have the money you have the resources but when you're doing something like curing cancer in a kid or helping sure they they are born healthy and can live a successful life then your your morality in the ways of thinking goes in a completely different direction now it's more of survival and love and care for your child that it is for just purely of what gender and what you want them to be yeah I think I think you did a good a nice job of delineating the difference between the two ones a luxury and one is the essence of whether the person will arrive and that is where I would bring in from a moral standpoint I would be like well god has provided us with this technology now that we can make these changes now what I don't agree with is that if we're in a situation where a child is gonna have physical challenges and there's not anything we can do about it that there is a growing trend of people I will let's just off it so that it doesn't have to deal with that no I don't like the rule to make you come into the planet and have to deal with that I'm like no no no again that's part of you know I mean there but for the grace of god go why so I you know I don't know I that that's where that's where I think it it kind of gets a little bit if you can do anything to help help but if you can't then it's it is.
