Don't Try To Be Great
"In his book. Based on a commencement speech he gave at Dartmouth College in twenty eleven. Charles Wheel tells a story about how he was once a guest on a news program hosted by Chicago journalist Phil Ponts now the show is filmed live. So of course if you mess up or say something you regret there are no do overs. They're only hundreds of thousands of pairs of eyes watching. You do whatever it is you did or say whatever it is you said polished or not just before airtime Charles the writer recalls how. He was feeling right before. He said he was nervous. Self-conscious in hoping to impress in that very moment fill. The host leaned over with just thirty seconds to live and said these words. Charles never forgot. Don't try to be great. Just be solid. The book is called ten and a half things. No commencement speaker has ever said and in it. Charles Leland writes this. That simple advice had a profound effect. Because I knew I could be solid. That was within my control. I could just talk about what I know. I could answer questions candidly. I could have a fun and interesting conversation with other guests. I might have some fun. Equips I might not. Phil's advice was liberating because it removed the pressure to deliver what I wasn't certain I could deliver and it made me better at doing what I knew I could again. The book is called ten and a half things. No commencement speaker has ever said and don't try to be great. Is thing ten and a half like many of you? I've been thinking a lot about this class of twenty twenty both like I said the high school graduates college graduates to in addition to all of the end of year events. This graduating classes either missing out on her having to modify because of the pandemic the truth remains they're still graduating. They are moving into the world of grownups and the expectations in this world can be while extreme to say the very least. This world is filled with people who are trying to be great in the same way. I hope doing the next great thing is a kind of phrase for graduates to hold onto. I think Philpott he gave to Charles. Leland seems like a relief as well. Don't try to be great. Just be solid. It's not the message we usually hear after all the phrase is greatest of all time not solid est of all time or does that even mean to be solid years ago. I listened to an interview with author Philly Anderson who by the way is also a real life dear friend of ours here. North Carolina but in the interview Phil shared about his thirty year. Friendship with author and priest Brennan Manning in that interview Phil says this about Brennan Guy who's famous for what he has to say yet. What I remember most about him was how he sat and listened. He touched my life with his kindness. To fill. Brennan was solid. Another story comes to mind about Brennan himself one that he told his book souvenirs of solitude and it was about how years ago after a difficult phone call he had. He left his home. He was distracted and he had an appointment. That day. To give a talk to the inmates of Trenton State prison when he stood up there in front of the inmates he had been distracted. Like I said right before. He got up there so without stopping to think about his surroundings. His first words of greeting to the inmates were well. It's nice to see so many of you here when I read that statement. I tip my head back and laughed out loud all by myself mainly though I recognized how Brennan responded to his own words he wrote. I'm frequently not inform on top or in control. This is part of my poverty. As a human being and self acceptance without self concern simply expresses a reality he writes an impoverished spirit prevents the poor man from becoming a tyrant to himself. Brand was not anxious shocked or even much concerned about this misstep in front of the inmates. Instead he had a light heart about it if he had been trying to be great that day. This mistake would have crushed him instead. He showed up solid which meant there was room to make a mistake and to move on without crumbling. We try to great. We risk becoming a tyrant to ourselves when things don't go the way planned one final quote and then I'll be done Dallas. Willard writes about the misunderstood phrase that we find in the Bible about dying to self he says in this is a quote when we see people dominated by their lust for glory or insisting that there will be done we will be in a position where we can be very firm in not cooperating with them even if their loved ones when we live in the shepherd sufficiency and died to ourselves. We become the most firmly established people in the world. That quote is from his book. Life Without lack the most firmly established people in the world so class of twenty twenty. Don't try to be great. Just be solid. Be Solid in the way you live in your house until the next phase begins in the way you hang out with your family your choice to laugh instead of roll your eyes in the way you choose to listen to your younger siblings. Who will miss you more than they can possibly say. Or put into words be solid with how you enter into your next experience not like a tourist who watches from behind a camera lund's and insists all of your usual comforts are close at hand and not like an expert who thinks she's supposed to know everything as best you can enter into your new situation ready to be fully present and engaged when you can and free to withdraw when it's necessary be solid enough to be boring if you're trying to be great you might not notice the people and the margins your neighbors who are working twice as hard for half as much. If you're trying to be great you might be tempted to bend the truth to get ahead. So just be solid honest simple and you

"We always appreciate hearing from you. Today we're excited to talk to Leland Jones. About what supplement he uses and how they've changed his life Leland. Thank you so much for joining us today to talk about this super important subject. These ravin me and I appreciate it of course so supplements are something that I think. A lot of people are skeptical toward so. Why does our body needs supplements or does our needs supplements in addition to the food that we already eat now? That's good and I can see why a lot of people are feeling that way and to be honest. I felt that way myself. So before Doe Tara. I had a different career and so what I did is I went to like one of those big stores that you can buy things in bulk and I actually brought the supplements and I put them on my desk. Because I felt like if I had him on my desk I could remind myself to take more often and I co worker. Who showed me about the pros and cons of these different supplements and so that I learned was one our soil's that we're currently using to grow our crops are not nutrient dense like they used to be and the other thing is. We're supposed to be eating like we're supposed to be eating healthier than we are. I'm sure there's no shock dating it's like your plate of food for dinner is supposed to be like a rainbow of colors of different vegetables and unfortunately that is not the way we are eating as much as we should so yeah. We need to be taking supplements one because people like me aren't eating healthy and to the food isn't doesn't have the nutrients that they once did. And then the other aspect is. We need those supplements to replenish our body of Fill in the gaps of all the things we are missing so yeah I would say it's very much important and that is so interesting and you're definitely not alone. I know for myself. My plate never looks like a rainbow so there definitely are gaps. That I'm sure most people have that need to be filled. So you mentioned other supplements that you taking before you were introduced to Tara. Are All supplements created equal? Not at all not in. I was actually really. I don't know if the word is shocked but I was really discouraged when I learned that all these supplements like you like a lot of people are wasting a lot of money and so not all supplements are the same and does tearing and we all know this like tears. Mission is to be pure like everything's one hundred percent pure may have supplements that are also infused with essential oils. It is the perfect combination. And so the only thing I love about the Tara's that I don't just have to tell you about their supplements like once you take you can feel the difference to them and I've taken like I said I've taken supplements from companies. I guess other brands and I never did feel a difference but I thought what I was. Doing was being proactive with my health and it turns out a lot of those supplements taking did nothing to had no had no real significant benefit to my body and so with Doe Tara. Yeah it's it's a huge difference and with that so you talked about not being able to feel a difference. What Canada vitamin do for your body when you found one that is working for you. What is the difference that you see? There's a couple of things one I feel during the day. I have an increase in energy so I feel like that's their like that increase but also like mental capacity. I feel like I have more clarity of thought like I don't feel like I'm like I don't know if the word is like fog but you know how sometimes you sometimes I feel like I. I've woken up but I'm still half asleep in the whole day that way and then when it's time to go to bed I'm like wide awake and so I feel like a multivitamin is helped me with that when I'm awake during the day. I don't have that fog in my brain and I have more of the clarity and the other thing that I like about it is I like having an increase in my quality of sleep so I like when I go to bed at night. I feel like I'm sleeping better. I like during the day I feel like I'm more awake more alert. I have more energy. So that's those are the benefits. I enjoy those are definitely benefits that I think everyone would like to have in their life a little bit more energy better sleep and I just feeling like your body is working the way that it should. I think that's incredible so Leland. Can you walk us through? What supplements Tara has that? You've utilized in your life. Oh it's kind of a long list. That's okay so my wife. My wife was the one that introduced me to essential oils. And then after I started using essential oils I had this belief in Tara and so when I stumbled upon the lifelong vitality three different. You know the three different bottles. That's what I started taking and so the three different ones so that's your micro plex the EMC. So that's your Vitamins and Minerals Your Z. Omegas of that's Exit Omega. That's the other one. And then the healthy are S. That helps you on a cellular level. So those were the three. I started taking and to be honest. I'm not trying to contradict myself but the first couple of I was taking them. I just Kinda felt the same like I didn't like my wife was like really hyping it up and I was like you know I kinda just feel the same here and it wasn't until I didn't take him for a day is when I felt the big difference. The other time I felt a huge difference is we had gone on a family vacation. And we're at an amusement park and we're you know how that is you're standing by your cooking in the Sun. You're spending tons of money. Your kids are yelling at you right and I had brought the lifelong vitality but I had forgotten to take them. The first two days are numbered taking it the third day. 'cause we went to this amusement park for four days so on the third day. I remember taking a n feeling such a huge difference in those different areas of feeling more clarity and feeling like I had an increase in energy and things like that so those were the three that I started taking and then I was introduced. A couple of other ones like So Deep Blue Rub. That's a that's the oil deep. Blue Oil is rob. Is is amazing. Use probably daily but then does tear came out with a pill form so it's the Deep Blue Polythene on complex. And just so you know. I had a practice that word times in the mirror. Like I haven't even. I can read that where let alone pronounce it off. So that's another one that I use a lot and then like right now. I'm picturing Mike pillowcase. In the kitchen so I use the lifelong vitality deep blue ocean terrorism. I you tear after every meal usually just one one pill but if I eat like I'm not trying to admit anything here but like I like I like being five. Ako waffles for breakfast like that doesn't even faze me and my wife is like you eat like you're like like a little kid that ran away from home and so. I do a bunch of junk food and so if I eat five. Ako Awful Sushi. I happen to. I'll I'll take more terrorism. Now take anywhere from one to three terrorism's so usually if I feel like I feel like I can add like that heavy weight in my stomach like I shouldn't have eaten that many offals. That's when I know I should take more than one or two times. And so that's another one. I take all the time another one. I love is DDR prime. And I don't know if it's my favorite but it's up there. Ddr prime they make it in a soft Gel and they also have an oil. And I know you know that but I just like to repeat a twenty but I take that one and that one I feel amazing with and then once in a while I by the might owe to the Max and I use it to the Max is really interesting to me so even though I eat a ton of junk food and I admit that I actually don't drink caffeine because have seen has a weird effect on me like if I drink caffeine like right now. It's like Kinda morning time you know early at early morning or I'm sorry late morning if I drink caffeine there's a chance I'll be awake until like three or four in the morning. It's like I think some people would enjoy something like that. I hate it and the other thing it does to me. It makes me jittery and it creates all kinds of like panic in my mind of like also I'll lay in bed. I'm sorry this is a tangent but I'll lay in bed and I'll worry about like identity theft and my couch so I can't i. I avoid caffeine as best. I Cam O- minute to the Max is totally different on my system. So I don't get jittery I. It does not keep me up late at night or anything crazy like that but it definitely does give me this sense that it's helping sustain my energy level throughout the day and I and I and I do it for that so anyway. Sorry that's a long answer but those are for the most part the ones I currently take. I think that was a great answer. I think it was very comprehensive which is super helpful. My final question for you Leland is what would you say to someone who is maybe teetering on the fence of whether or not to start introducing supplements into their life. Oh sure I mean my quick answer would be listen. It's got a money back guarantee so I'm talking about the lifelong vitality passing so is three different. So just try it. You have nothing to lose many. If you don't like it you don't you don't get the result you think you. Should you send the bottles back and get your money back? So there's not like nothing crazy that's going to happen that you're GONNA lose all this money or anything and the other thing is you just need to try it out. Everybody's body is different. Your reaction like I don't think everyone has the same reaction to caffeine. Otherwise we'd live in a really weird society so we don't we all react differently to certain things so you WanNa try these supplements and then see how your body reacts. And if it's in a positive way which I'm very confident it will be. You'll be grateful that you're using them and then you'll continue to use them so me personally. I WANNA make sure every month I have like on talent and terrorism and then I kinda cycled through different ones like right now. I'm doing the dual capsule tumor Joe Or they're called Soft Gel but then I also do like the deep blue and the you name it. I am bound to the Max so anti Prime. So he went. I Yeah I would highly recommend you. Just try it and I think you would have wonderful benefits and there's no loss of financial to it either.

These ravin me and I appreciate it of course so supplements are something that I think. A lot of people are skeptical toward so. Why does our body needs supplements or does our needs supplements in addition to the food that we already eat now? That's good and I can see why a lot of people are feeling that way and to be honest. I felt that way myself. So before Doe Tara. I had a different career and so what I did is I went to like one of those big stores that you can buy things in bulk and I actually brought the supplements and I put them on my desk. Because I felt like if I had him on my desk I could remind myself to take more often and I co worker. Who showed me about the pros and cons of these different supplements and so that I learned was one our soil's that we're currently using to grow our crops are not nutrient dense like they used to be and the other thing is. We're supposed to be eating like we're supposed to be eating healthier than we are. I'm sure there's no shock dating it's like your plate of food for dinner is supposed to be like a rainbow of colors of different vegetables and unfortunately that is not the way we are eating as much as we should so yeah. We need to be taking supplements one because people like me aren't eating healthy and to the food isn't doesn't have the nutrients that they once did. And then the other aspect is. We need those supplements to replenish our body of Fill in the gaps of all the things we are missing so yeah I would say it's very much important and that is so interesting and you're definitely not alone. I know for myself. My plate never looks like a rainbow so there definitely are gaps. That I'm sure most people have that need to be filled. So you mentioned other supplements that you taking before you were introduced to Tara. Are All supplements created equal? Not at all not in. I was actually really. I don't know if the word is shocked but I was really discouraged when I learned that all these supplements like you like a lot of people are wasting a lot of money and so not all supplements are the same and does tearing and we all know this like tears. Mission is to be pure like everything's one hundred percent pure may have supplements that are also infused with essential oils. It is the perfect combination. And so the only thing I love about the Tara's that I don't just have to tell you about their supplements like once you take you can feel the difference to them and I've taken like I said I've taken supplements from companies. I guess other brands and I never did feel a difference but I thought what I was. Doing was being proactive with my health and it turns out a lot of those supplements taking did nothing to had no had no real significant benefit to my body and so with Doe Tara. Yeah it's it's a huge difference and with that so you talked about not being able to feel a difference. What Canada vitamin do for your body when you found one that is working for you. What is the difference that you see? There's a couple of things one I feel during the day. I have an increase in energy so I feel like that's their like that increase but also like mental capacity. I feel like I have more clarity of thought like I don't feel like I'm like I don't know if the word is like fog but you know how sometimes you sometimes I feel like I. I've woken up but I'm still half asleep in the whole day that way and then when it's time to go to bed I'm like wide awake and so I feel like a multivitamin is helped me with that when I'm awake during the day. I don't have that fog in my brain and I have more of the clarity and the other thing that I like about it is I like having an increase in my quality of sleep so I like when I go to bed at night. I feel like I'm sleeping better. I like during the day I feel like I'm more awake more alert. I have more energy. So that's those are the benefits. I enjoy those are definitely benefits that I think everyone would like to have in their life a little bit more energy better sleep and I just feeling like your body is working the way that it should. I think that's incredible so Leland. Can you walk us through? What supplements Tara has that? You've utilized in your life. Oh it's kind of a long list. That's okay so my wife. My wife was the one that introduced me to essential oils. And then after I started using essential oils I had this belief in Tara and so when I stumbled upon the lifelong vitality three different. You know the three different bottles. That's what I started taking and so the three different ones so that's your micro plex the EMC. So that's your Vitamins and Minerals Your Z. Omegas of that's Exit Omega. That's the other one. And then the healthy are S. That helps you on a cellular level. So those were the three. I started taking and to be honest. I'm not trying to contradict myself but the first couple of I was taking them. I just Kinda felt the same like I didn't like my wife was like really hyping it up and I was like you know I kinda just feel the same here and it wasn't until I didn't take him for a day is when I felt the big difference. The other time I felt a huge difference is we had gone on a family vacation. And we're at an amusement park and we're you know how that is you're standing by your cooking in the Sun. You're spending tons of money. Your kids are yelling at you right and I had brought the lifelong vitality but I had forgotten to take them. The first two days are numbered taking it the third day. 'cause we went to this amusement park for four days so on the third day. I remember taking a n feeling such a huge difference in those different areas of feeling more clarity and feeling like I had an increase in energy and things like that so those were the three that I started taking and then I was introduced. A couple of other ones like So Deep Blue Rub. That's a that's the oil deep. Blue Oil is rob. Is is amazing. Use probably daily but then does tear came out with a pill form so it's the Deep Blue Polythene on complex. And just so you know. I had a practice that word times in the mirror. Like I haven't even. I can read that where let alone pronounce it off. So that's another one that I use a lot and then like right now. I'm picturing Mike pillowcase. In the kitchen so I use the lifelong vitality deep blue ocean terrorism. I you tear after every meal usually just one one pill but if I eat like I'm not trying to admit anything here but like I like I like being five. Ako waffles for breakfast like that doesn't even faze me and my wife is like you eat like you're like like a little kid that ran away from home and so. I do a bunch of junk food and so if I eat five. Ako Awful Sushi. I happen to. I'll I'll take more terrorism. Now take anywhere from one to three terrorism's so usually if I feel like I feel like I can add like that heavy weight in my stomach like I shouldn't have eaten that many offals. That's when I know I should take more than one or two times. And so that's another one. I take all the time another one. I love is DDR prime. And I don't know if it's my favorite but it's up there. Ddr prime they make it in a soft Gel and they also have an oil. And I know you know that but I just like to repeat a twenty but I take that one and that one I feel amazing with and then once in a while I by the might owe to the Max and I use it to the Max is really interesting to me so even though I eat a ton of junk food and I admit that I actually don't drink caffeine because have seen has a weird effect on me like if I drink caffeine like right now. It's like Kinda morning time you know early at early morning or I'm sorry late morning if I drink caffeine there's a chance I'll be awake until like three or four in the morning. It's like I think some people would enjoy something like that. I hate it and the other thing it does to me. It makes me jittery and it creates all kinds of like panic in my mind of like also I'll lay in bed. I'm sorry this is a tangent but I'll lay in bed and I'll worry about like identity theft and my couch so I can't i. I avoid caffeine as best. I Cam O- minute to the Max is totally different on my system. So I don't get jittery I. It does not keep me up late at night or anything crazy like that but it definitely does give me this sense that it's helping sustain my energy level throughout the day and I and I and I do it for that
"leland" Discussed on Marketing Today with Alan Hart
"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.

"leland" Discussed on Marketing Today with Alan Hart
"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.

Eadweard Muybridge, the Man Who Captured Time
"Edward Mobridge was born in eighteen thirty and kingston upon teams in England. His birth name was Edward Muggeridge but as he marched through the circumstances dances life he would change his name many times. Such a thing was pretty uncommon in the eighteen hundreds but he was pretty uncommon man. His hometown town was the historical site of coronations where the early British kings were crowned and ceremony and the earliest of. These monarchs were Saxons and perhaps inspired by that the young man would change his name to Mobridge and adopt the old spelling of his first name. Edward The vowel heavy spelling E. A. D. w. e. a. a- are D-. It looks like eat weird but sounds like Edward seeking adventure. He left for America at the age of twenty two telling his grandmother that if he didn't succeed and the lofty goals he had for his own life. He'd never retired. He arrived in New York with a bunch of extra bells and his name and little else he. He worked there for a bit but was thirsty for more. So he left for California soon after it was eighteen fifty-five during the gold rush when scores of people headed west to mind for the valuable metal. He sought his fortune through other means. Though he opened a bookstore in San Francisco the city was growing in the people had money need to spend by most accounts he was mild mannered and his business was pretty successful in the bustling city in eighteen. Sixty he made plans to head back to Europe for. We're a visit and to do some business. But he missed the boat so instead he booked passage on a Coniston goggin across the American continent to head head back east and from there he would sail to his native England. Kind of still go. aggies were the common covered wagon that you see all of the images of westward travel. It was was a fateful trip and the first time that a horse would fundamentally alter his life. These wagons were pulled by horses. The one carrying Mobridge was pulled by a team of six six mustangs but somewhere in Texas the horses pulling his wagon broke loose and started off leaving the wagon cascading on a high narrow trail above Iraqi fall. The driver couldn't get control and the WAGGON tumbled loaded with passengers and their belongings thinking quickly as the accident that was unfolding. Edward tried to cut an escape hole in the wagons cover but in the commotion he was thrown from the vehicle and hit his head on a rock. During the fall he recovered from the head injury in Arkansas. For three months though he had no recollection of the accident. One of the other passengers had to tell oh him what had happened. In addition to some memory problems he now saw everything in a disorienting. Double Vision Edward also displayed definite personality. Finality changes it was a brain injury. And as you might guess these can have a great impact on a person in his case. The injuries came with aggressive episodes. Grandiose thinking and general unusual behavior the people who had known him before noticed a distinct difference in his personality. After recuperating more New York he headed back to England where he stayed for several years when he returned to America in eighteen sixty seven. He considered himself photographer having learned a lot about the new art form and he had acquired some very nice equipment which he had brought with him. It was still a developing art. In fact the I photograph in history was made in France just four years before Edward was even born. By the time he was working eighteen sixties. The technology was still very limited mid and far from the powerful cameras that we carry in our pockets every day. Edwards equipment filled an entire horse cart in addition to the new career as a photographer he also sported an enormous beard and he called himself by a host of new names including Helius. This was not not the same old Edward. His photography made an impact on the world. He had a definite fascination with stopping time. Just a few years after a man named Matthew Brady Changed America by photographing not just the people of the civil war. But the battle scenes and carnage mobridge was documenting in beautiful detail. Some of America's because most amazing and mysterious natural sites. If you've never been to Yosemite Valley you still probably heard about it's staggering beauty. This led to it being being among the first of the land to be designated as national parks but before it welcomed hordes of tourists to gaze at its beauty weighbridge made some of the first and certainly some of the best photographs of the amazing land. Some of them are so amazing. They look like epic landscape paintings soon. Everyone wanted a piece of Edward. Helius Komo Abridge the same year. He came back to America. The Secretary of State William seward negotiated a deal to buy Alaska Lasca from the Russian Empire. But for years this was called seward's icebox or seward's folly because most people thought it was a costly mistake to buy the enormous swath of northern land in an effort to convince people of its value. The government hired Mobridge to join an expedition travel with his immense. It's photo equipment and a darkroom and photograph the Land Resources and native people of the territory. They are some of the most important documents we have of that time time period still today but it was back in California that his fame truly solidified and it was largely. Thanks to a man who would give his name to Stanford University his name was Leland Stanford and he had a problem he was a robber Baron and oh this was a problem for a lot of other people. This wasn't a problem as so called robber. Baron he like several other industrialised of the late eighteen. Hundreds was rich and powerful but he had gotten that way through some pretty shady and morally questionable ways used political influence and connections to get rich not to mention taking advantage of many less fortunate people he had been the governor head of the railroad a Horse Breeder and he owned what was at the time the largest winery in the world on his gigantic estate. He raised eight hundred racehorses. Feeding these horses alone wasn't expensive task in order to do so. He also operated a a sixty acre carrot farm just for food so you may ask yourself what does a guy like this. Have to worry about Mr Muggeridge. I I have a problem. That's not my name. Mr Mobridge have rows riot again. I have gone long again call me. He Leo's Leo's that's right heels as in the ancient Greek personification of the sun being okay. Okay Helius so I have this theory and it's more than a hunch but I just can't prove it and I may or may not have bet money on it so I I need an answer. So how can he LEO's help. Well he'll ios this concerned horses. You see I believe when a horse runs at some point in its stride dried all four of its speed are above the ground so at some point the horse has touching absolutely nothing yet still moving forward but it happened so quickly that I can't be certain. Do you understand yeah. He Leo's digs that. You want me to prove it with Pictures Helius. I'd like that very much which it's going to cost you. Some money got plenty. Don't worry. Coup crackle added now it was actually a pretty common disagreement of the time and Leland with his stable full of horses and pockets. Full of cash was in a unique position to solve it he just needed. Someone like mobridge invest best craziest and most creative photographer in the public eye to solve technical issues when a horse ran. was there ever a moment when all four of its feet were off of the ground many people believed it could not possibly be true. The first tries to capture the airborne image. Each were failures. It was impossible with the cameras of the day to catch the fast horse. At just the right time the beast was just a blur so they went back to the drawing board. The project was derailed by mobridge being the defendant in a murder case which is another story entirely but once that was over they got back to work. More bridge hung white sheets up along the race track. And whiten the track itself with chalk powder this would reflect any an all light which he knew would help. The camera. Camera capture a clear image of the fast horse next. He designed a camera with quick shutter speed. It may have been the first of its kind as most cameras needed a long Exposure to whatever was being photographed people would have to sit still early photographs. So that they didn't show up as a blur that would not work with a galloping horse.

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.

I try not to buy overpriced stadium food you ever go to to Indianapolis to watch the Pacers or the colts or go to Cincinnati to watch the Bengals or something. And you're going to pay big dollars for stadium food, which is it's not that great. You wanna have dinner before the game after the game? That's one thing. I I just I don't buy stadium food if I can help it. But it is a little scary. Some of the some of the findings ESPN had with these hundred different venues, and they had pictures online with moldy bun and bugs is. Yeah. View eat much stadium food day. Now, not really you have to have a hotdog at the ballpark though. I mean, well, I mean you can have just as much trouble with the hot dog. I guess I will do a hotdog maybe occasionally, but it's. I don't know. Even even that. I try not to I'll do one hot dog. Just something about the way. They tasted a baseball game. I'm not sure what it is. It's it is the atmosphere. Bowling alley. Burger.

"Common sense. Leland Conway on News Radio. Eight forty W H A S. Because you got a lot of time. Joe Elliott Infor Leland, NewsRadio eight forty W H A S. So we thought we were kind of on the road to solving Kentucky's pension problem, or at least taken a major step, but Kentucky's supreme court yesterday said not so fast. On a procedural problem. The court has essentially overturned that unanimously yesterday, and we are back to square one. My go-to guy on pensions has been Representative Jerry Miller he is a long time longtime experience in the financial industry. He's been watching this. And I think it's fair to say that most people who have looked at Kentucky's pension system say we have been underfunded, and we've got some we've got some major problems. So I wanted to get Representative Miller on the line here and and get his reaction to what the court did yesterday. But more importantly talk about what we do next. And he is on our line to talk about this this morning. Representative Miller always appreciate catching up with you. Thanks very much for giving us some time this morning. So what were your what was your reaction yesterday? When you saw the unanimous decision by the Kentucky supreme court. Well, Joe I will say this in I I'll thanks for having me on is the theme song for Leland Conway about it all going to hell on your dime. Rings true. When I heard that. It's what we're what we're dealing with is. We're still on the road. Right. We got a major bump on the road to Saban this issue, but we're going to have to back up a little bit and start over. I it's not a law. You're not going to comment on the supreme court. But. But we've got a big problem and we've got to solve it. Well, I mean, very, frankly, I think that's where we really need to go because we can cry or spilt milk all day. But look the court has done what they have done and the clock is still ticking. Here brother, we got. We have a problem that he's only going to get worse every day and responsible people grownups in the room. We're going to have to find a way to fix it. Well, it's funny. You should say that that grownups in rogue? Yeah. It reminds me of going over to my daughter's house and seeing my granddaughter's room, and realizing that she's not responsible enough to clean up her own room. So somebody's gotta do it for. And that's what we're facing right here is the people that that got us in the mess are perpetuating it. They're celebrating the fact that that they throw a roadblock, but. It's just one of those things you've got to overcome in life. It's interesting. I in terms of one of our members said that a teacher told them. In November that yeah, we we remembered in November. But we remembered created a mess and who's been trying to fix it. And that's why the that had no impact on the election. Virtually no impact there might have been one or two races. But by nothing zero zip NADA. Well, as one of things I talked about a little earlier this morning is they really did not have the impact. Now having said that I mean, I know there were some nervous legislatures about that. Because I mean, the the backlash was so strong, but it really didn't materialize on election day. Do you anticipate because of that is are we going to take stronger steps more decisive steps to try to solve this pension problem? The next time around. Well, good question. I obviously it is the burning question today. I mean, we have options of we could we could just go back and pass one fifty one the Kentucky associated with school. Superintendents had had a proposal back during the session that it was pretty good. I mean, we go back and look at parts of that to bring forward could go back to Senate Bill one which was really what was the intended goal. And then when it when it couldn't pass the Senate because the Senate didn't think the house would pass it that how come we wound up doing the new for that has been used in Kentucky. Legislators legislators for sixty years. So that's why why we did that. But it's an option. We may go back this be one equity. There are some people in my caucus wanna go all the way back to the governor's proposal of Faulk Tober seventeen. But. But. It's too early to tell. Something you can't fix this with just funding. So let's let's let's lay some some building blocks here because there are people. I had somebody asked me yesterday. He doesn't he doesn't have a state job doesn't have a state pension. He says why should I really care about this? You should care about it. Because we're going to have less and less money to do other things, right because more and more. This money is going to go to pay off the obligation which we have signed with all of these folks who have pensions coming to them. They sign a contract with the state, and we are obligated to pay that off. But because that that shares going to get bigger and bigger it's going to give us less and lex flexibile flexibility to to meet the other obligations that we have to pay. Absolutely. I it's it's ironic that you look at we had a tax reform Bill that we through cigarette taxes and other things we wound up generating about three hundred and eighty million dollars last session in the current biennium to address education and pensions and not a single House Democrat, not one voted for it. So they're clearly they made the mess. They're not responsible enough to clean it up. And and the adults in the room. We're going to have to do it. So tell me how bad the problem is. Can you put this into sort of shirt's sleeve English for people who don't really have a sense of this? If we do nothing what happens how how bad is this and how urgent is it. How important is it that we we solve this crisis yesterday? Well, we have forty three billion dollars with a B, which is in unfunded, pension liability. That's close to ten thousand dollars for every man woman and child of Kentucky, and like any debt if if you've got you've got to service the debt, and if it's a growing debt, it's gonna take more and more more of your of your revenues, which means less and less and less for classroom education for medica-, medical care, Medicaid, less up for everything else. Government does. Now reineck thing about this. Joe I and I know the supreme court says, oh, this only applies to this Bill and not anything else. But there's some huge implications. Here we passed before I got in the house in twenty twelve a mess Bill and then in two thousand fifteen I was there we passed a heroin Bill their people sitting in jail now due to those two bills, and they will pass using the same process, and I suspect there are some plaintiff's attorneys out there that are licking their chops on this deal because they can look at that and say, well if that was unconstitutional. Did you use the same process and? Beyond that, there's a. This has thirty million their house Bill three sixty two with another Bill that was what we refer to as we gutted one Bill replaced the language, and it was to soften the blow with the pension cost on cities counties and school systems as a result of the problems, we're facing, and this means thirty million dollars, the Louisville metro annually twelve million JC PS and so. Effectively three sixty two is null and void as well. I I think we all can we will consider three sixty two null and void. So we're going to have to deal with that issue again. Wow. You look at the at the ripple effects of all this. And. It does it does make me crazy. I have to say, and I said this a little earlier that you know, we check bills we we've done this on the federal government for years. I mean, you won't recognize the the original intent of the Bill by the time it passes. And I mean, I get that. That's just the way that's the way it goes. I'd like to see more transparency. But I mean, that's kind of out of my above my pay. Let me let me address that. Please L fell one fifty one was two hundred and ninety one pages and they're complaining. Oh, we didn't get a chance to read the Bill. Well, two hundred ninety two hundred eighty nine of the two hundred ninety one pages the same as Senate Bill one which was introduced weeks before. And if they're not going to read it when they have weeks, I understand. Ludicrous. I did we why did we essentially attach it to or use a water treatment Bill to get the thing passed? Well, it was it was you could've used any Bill leadership. Just chose that Bill because it was sponsored by my friend. Senator Joe Bowen who is head of the for the last five six years has been the main driver of pension reform. And I think they wanted his wanted his name on it. And. So it was kind of an accident that that that Bill happened to be a wastewater Bill because it was the only Bill the house had with Boeing's name on it. That was we were able to use. So again, it was a decision of leadership, and we can second guess, but nonetheless, understand okay? Things here. And I will let you go. You've been generous with your time. And I appreciate it. What about the folks Andy Bashir in some others who say you guys are this is either the sky is not falling. We have put steps into place if we just stick with the plan. We're going to be fine. Well, the plan. What's the implication of that is or the basis for a statement? Like that is if you you just find funding just find funding, and you can't fix this problem with just funding is study after study shows that in in terms of the teachers pension only fifteen percent of the unfunded liability of almost twenty billion dollars of the teachers pension plan is related to under-funding about state. And so. While you say, yeah, we can fund it. But underfunding hasn't been the problem. It's a structural issue. And we have to fix the structure of the retirement systems. Really? It's it. It is a math issue is not. I mean, we're going to be obligated more and more people as time goes on. And and those costs are just going to continue to go up. So I mean, we we simply have to address that. It's really not a it's not a right or left issue. It's really more of a math issue. Isn't it? The funniest and say that I I had a math teacher one time. That said mathematics is a cruel cold thing said, it's when compounding is can work against share or can work for you. And if you don't manage your business, well, it's gonna work against you. Because when you dig that whole it starts getting deeper, and this gets the every day, no matter how much we turn up the music and pretend that it's that it's okay or that it's going to be okay. I mean, the the numbers are relentless here. They just they don't lie. So so I guess the jackpot question here is I'm going to ask you a question that obviously, you can't know the answer to right now. But where do we go next? We're we're we're going back into session next month. What happens next? I know. There's a lot of people with a lot of different a lot of different ideas, as you just mentioned in terms of where we go. Are we going to get a sort of a unified front and get and get something done here in this legislative session? Well, that's what's being discussed now. And. I'm not in all the conversations. But again, it's it's what do we do? Is we go back to one fifty one week go a little bit further back to Senate Bill one? Do we do we adopt the superintendent Bill for the teachers which had good elements in it? But but wouldn't like it any better than they liked it? And then like. One fifty one or do you do something else? And so that's that's what's going on. Because whatever we do. We're gonna have to keep in mind that this house Bill three sixty two that softens the blow on cities counties and school boards is affected. Is affected because it was passed in the same session after. The pension. Dell was passed. So. I don't see how anyone including the supreme court's could say it doesn't affect that. Bill. Just thinking about this. I mean, if you're a resident of Jefferson County, I mean, obviously, we this is a state issue. But if you're a resident of Jefferson County with the with the issues we've had. Yeah. Then it becomes it's it's double double imperative that we get something. We we get something done here at C. It's a thirty billion dollar issue for for Louisville metro twelve million dollars for J CPS, you think of the hundreds and thousands of people sitting in jails because of heroin Bill of twenty fifteen the mess Bill of twenty twelve right? Think of if if UK professor got six hundred thousand dollars because he lost his job. What are these people that are sitting in jail gonna get if an innovative lawyer comes along and shoes on their behalf? It's they've opened Pandora's box. That's the that's kind of where we are right now in the lawyers can deal with that. But I've gotta deal with pensions. And that's what I'm focusing on. Well, I think that's the I think that's the key question. Here is what do we do next?.

"A big sponsorship would be great. It'd be because we help animals all over Kentucky and in Indiana in disasters. And it's just a really good place. I think I mean in in to see what we're trying to put together it's going to be like a complex, and we do have the first three hundred thousand dollar donation, and then I do wanna starting next year for ten for five years. Eclipse Bank is done a fifty thousand dollar pledge. Oh, cool. I mean, we're we're just coming along. So yeah, that's awesome. I have to tell you something. I can't disappoint a nine year old girl got a phone call or an Email woman met me at the office. My daughter wants to meet you my daughter wants to meet you heard it on the Leland Conway show about the earth fund. And this Don year old child did a bake sale raised two hundred dollars, and it's because of you, and she came they drove in from Lexington. And I met her in so Eva, you're an amazing child in Lenny's Fant Tiffin tastic mother teaching. So I mean, obviously, it's because of great parents who have child with a great heart. That's what that's about. We we need more compassion out there in teaching children about this type of thing. So you guys obviously take in animals that have been severely abused. And you have we've got several victory stories. I know le- Leland the dog was actually a great victory story. What's happening right now. Several in the hospital. I'll tell you about one one one this dog he looked like seriously everyone thought it was a bear a bear cub in the middle of the road. It was he was in horrendous shape, and we named him Balu after the jungle Andaluz seriously when someone got to him he he collapsed, and he L show you the picture in a minute. He was almost delay. You know when we got him. Yeah. And he looked dead. Mange every single thing you can imagine and Balu still looks a little rough because of the major sarcastic. But he is standing he is walking. He is wagging. His tail was sixty two pounds with a body skill of too. So you can imagine how thin he is. He's a new Newfoundland. So. He's got a lot to grow. He may be stunted from the lack of nutritious left him in the road. He had not been cared for for ever. He was mad at feces urine as bad as you can get seriously his eyes were fixed. He was checking out his spirit was broken and day by day. We're seeing light. I mean, he gets excited. He played with a toy. It's just magical magical, and I love what you do. Well, we love what we do to in a in a very I feel like I feel like God created animals to be man's companion. And so there's just something wells up inside of me when I hear about people that are cruel or bad to them because they're they are there. There's a special connection. I love all animals, but there is a special connection between canine. Yeah. And homo sapiens. There is a special connection. And I think it's it's because we've been breeding them to be our companion for so long. And they depend on us. I think there. Yeah. I feel the same way. I mean, they. And many of them are just pure love. And I think many of them are old souls. You know, you can just tell ROY told my wife the other day. I was like I think God created dogs to remind us of unconditional love that whole concept. I would agree with that. When I come home at night. It doesn't matter. How much I've generated a lot of hate mail at? I hate Leila. Dot com. My dogs think it's the greatest thing in the world. When I walk into just love that it is amazing in it. And we have the capacity to help so many. And I might add we don't we don't being a nonprofit. We don't talk about Canada candidates. But the time to vote is now in your show goes all over please check to to the people standing where they stand on animal views, I cannot stress this enough because in these role counties some of them not all of them because I'm not gonna talk, you know, I'm not talking about one individual. But some of these people that are in office. Now, some are the reason why we can't move any further on lost protect animals and animal laws and children's law children in the homes of these animals being abused.

"On NewsRadio eight forty w wage a s. Common sense. Leland Conway on NewsRadio. Eight forty W H A S. Because you got a lot of time. Yeah. So the. The latest accusation against Brett Cavin is the fact that he apparently through ice on somebody at a bar fight in like nineteen eighty five. Yeah. There we go. That's his new theme song whenever if he gets confirmed when when he walks in. Instead of here come the judge it should just be ice ice. Baby. Wasn't he getting rid of ice though? What the Democrats want say? And get rid of the is he was abolishing ice one night. You're CNN yesterday. Miss that show that Brett cavenaugh through ice in someone's face during a bar fight when he was in college. Do you feel that that is in any way disqualifying for someone that's into the supreme court? I love CNN. I they're just cute now. Bless their hearts. They're just cute. Now, it's it's a door. Do you feel like this any way? Did of course, he's talking to the Hawaiian Senator. I can't what's her name Donohoe know what what is her name? That's the guy who played the ukulele, right? What's what's the owner? Oh, okay. Look it up. Okay. Anyway, he's talking to her. And of course, she's basically taken the position she's been kind of the face of the opposition here. Besides Feinstein where she's kind of taken the position that he's guilty. No matter what doesn't matter. It's over. Okay. So so so CNN is asking do you think throwing? I mean, you think about this. Are there any things you did when you were Ono Harouna? Okay. Did it are there any things you did in college or high school that you have people knew it now, and they actually held it against you thirty some odd years later. You know what I mean? I can't think of anything actually your hand. If you oh my God. I mean, look, I've already told this story. So there was the time. We duct tape the guy to the butt end of a horse statue. Okay, Emilio that probably that probably would disqualify me from serving on the supreme court. I think maybe. Anyway, so CNN let me just start this over again because CNN that show that Brett cavenaugh through ice in someone's face during a bar fight when he was in college. Do you feel that that is in any way disqualifying for someone to sit in the supreme court? No. This is why we need an investigation because there are a lot of allegations. And the reports really are about.

"I mean Leland Leland. Totally right on this one. So you're already voted for Leland William. Got anything. No. I mean, I just the whole cavenaugh. They find sign all the congress just need to die. But I mean, that's just me. Mitch's domination. What have you got with. Well, mine comes to me an fortunately. It's one of those unnamed type situations. I can't name the perpetrator or perpetrators actually, but but it's a setup of the situation that really, Chris is the Sallee Asst thing you can do as human beings. So horri- happened, right? North Carolina gets ransacked flooded all that good stuff. So bunch of people were activated national guard and pulled from their homes and went to help out with people. While the story comes to light. When one comes home, Lewis Ocampo gets back home. He's a, he's a military medic from helping out other people that have been, you know, victimized by this this storm, and he gets home around Charlotte, and he lives in Charlotte and is house had been robbed, ransacked and robbed. So what I really got out of it and I started thinking about is it's it's the looters. It's these. Assholes that take advantage at people when they're at their worst lowest and most vulnerable the like that's when you were at your scummy us when you take advantage of people that have no way of taking care of themselves at that point. Like they can't take care of their pocket. They're already under stress and then you're like, you know what? And it's not there stealing lifesaving subsidies. They're not like I'm gonna go rob for bread. I'm gonna go rob for water milk. I'm gonna go, see if this guy in his house has diapers from. No, it's like literally. Okay. I need that TV frigging power. Like you're not leaving me, you're not just dealing your. There's such a difference to me between still in in this moment, taking advantage of people at their weakest. I don't know. I just I don't know why it made me irate irritated. I was just rigging so frustrated by this whole concept of I'm just gonna take everything. You know what? It always happens to the people hasn't. They're trying to help. And you know, of course, when it comes to military service, especially if you're going to national guard, you have no choice. It's not like you can say, I'm calling in sick, you know, but it's just it's just such a dick move, and it's just to me it find it to be the as scummy as thing you can do. I don't know why I just people are people are out doing something, you know, self sacrifice and doing something for other people and making themselves vulnerable. And then these, these, these free thin. You know, breaking dick ads, take advantage of it. Well, you know, I think in history, the first thing like recorded as in looting was Rome. You know when. Empires would fall or especially when Rome was under scenes. The the first time I believe he was four, twenty AD the the common people. You know, the poor people of Rome took advantage and looted all the rich people. I mean their own people. I mean, they're under siege, and they're eventually all gotta die anyway. But they go ahead and steal from all the rich. They take all the riches. So I think that's the first recording history. I don't think they did it in Egypt during, you know, the pyramid times. They were just slaughtered, may start it all over again. But yeah, I mean, looting is technically it's not new. No, I wasn't interested at this moment. I was like, I don't know if I know we've caught out looters before, but just straight up like, hey, scumbags that these salaries possible thing in the world. I'm gonna. I'm gonna try. I'm gonna drink Tom that well. Jern what you got going at your britches. Swollen going to say Durham university's philosophy journal. So a student enter that, you know, Durham university has been fired, or I trans phobic comments after he tweeted that women don't have penises. So Angelos I'm not going to try and pronounce his last name but Angelo's with with sacked from his post. Just three days afterwards, running a tweet gamed transphobic fellow students. Now why Angeles from Cyprus, and he faced disciplinary action last month. After all, he really did. It was re tweeted an article by the spectre on his Twitter, you know, titled, but reach week, is it a crime to say that women don't have penises?.
