A highlight from Mallory Millet (Encore)
"Welcome to the Eric Metaxas Show with your host, Eric Metaxas. Hey there, sports fans. I like to have fun on this program, and usually it involves friends of mine talking about fun stuff. For example, my friend Mallory Millett. Mallory Millett, Dana Herr. First of all, welcome back to the program. Thank you. Usually when you're on the program, we're talking about all this political stuff because I met you through our mutual friend Ann Coulter, and you're very active politically. So you're the director of the David Horowitz Freedom Center, blah, blah, blah. We're not going to talk about any of that. The last time we had dinner, you started telling me truly amazing stories of your encounters with huge celebrities in the show business world. So before we get into how you know one giant name after the other and your experiences with them, Mallory, how did you get involved in show business to begin with? Because now I think of you mainly as a political activist, but how did you get involved? Well, I was in the Rochester Theater Guild in Rochester, Minnesota, briefly, before I then went to live in the Philippines. Why did you live in the Philippines? Well, this was my first marriage, which has been annulled, and this is the father of my child. He was made president of 3M Asia at the tender age of 29, and we were sent suddenly over to the Far East. And I found myself living in Manila, so I joined the Manila Theater Guild, which was a group of people who had survived the Santo Tomas prison camp in World War II. They got together in the camp and decided if they did a little theater group in the camp, they might all survive because they have something that's occupying them. So they were a fantastic group of people, and once the war was over, they situated themselves in the Army -Navy Club on Manila Bay right there, in this gorgeous, big Army -Navy, very Somerset Maugham kind of setting. And they did this fantastic theater, absolutely wonderful. I had a ball working with these people. So I produced for them, I produced the Fantasticks in Southeast Asia, which was a big hit. Not many people can say that. I produced the Fantasticks in Southeast Asia.

"One of them had an assault rifle, one of them had a revolver. And they hit the guard on the head and knocked him down, take his side arm, and they accosted the teller. And that typical words of encouragement, if you scream, bitch, I'll kill you, open the door, that type of stuff. You know, that kind of gets your attention. So the ladies all, you know, nervous stuff. She's all tense and shaking and crying and stuff. And she's, you know, saying, don't hurt me, don't hurt me. So she takes the key and she sticks it into the door knob to unlock the teller island. She was also carrying a teller bag. So when she sticks a key into the teller into the lock, she's so nervous that she breaks the key off inside the lock. That's a lot of nerve to break off one of those keys. That's not an easy thing to do. No, it's not. I mean, you have to admit that took a lot of pressure, okay? Well, you know what? At this point, if I was investigating this robbery, I'd be looking for somebody named Murphy because every time they come out rob, Murphy's law steps in. Well, thank God because if they were actually good at what they were doing, at least up to this point, probably more people might have been killed. They might have got more money, which would embolden them more. But on the other hand, they're getting so they don't seem that they're quite that good at it yet, but as we know with most criminals, right? That's the problem. They might get desperate things are gonna get a little bit worse. Yeah. Well, you know what, though, your comments are spot on because we were thinking the same thing. It was not quite the gang who couldn't shoot straight because God knows it fired a bunch. You know, but, you know, we could tell that they were kind of amateurish at bank robbing. Okay, our armored truck Robbie, because so far, you know, it was like, wow, what the hell, you know? So anyway, so there's teller, this woman basically off and she's crying, she don't kill me, don't kill me, you know? So they threaten her a bit, you know, saying, you bitch, you know, blah, blah, blah, you know, type of stuff. So, you know, they took the guards gun and they took the woman's little killer bag. It was one of those little, you know, not a huge bag, but it was the size of a Manila folder. You know, that type of stuff.

Our journeys are somewhat different, but we can always learn these lessons. We were rescued. It took years. It took years before things were completely resolved. And we came out, and we were preserved. And our children were preserved. And I grew because I was in the dark.

"I know one other assignment that you worked on. It's very different from these other stories. We're talking about is. The is the war on drugs in the philippines. Tell me a little bit about how you came to cover that like you. So you spent your time in the in cambodia. And then you back to the philippines. Back to the philippines during the time of the detector administration A felt very strongly about the need to be there at the time to document what was going on in the changes that was going on in my country When detail was elected in the philippines he began this campaign to end drugs and a big part of that campaign was killing. Drug users and drug pushers And being very hard line about it and so thousands of people died in this ongoing bloody war on drugs so i was getting assigned to do these stories about the war on drugs in the philippines. You know it's a very intense story in that it. It's a lot of death and violence. So i did that story in two parts because while i was getting assigned to cover that story i would notice that every time we would photograph in these crime scenes. There are all these people coming around the dead body the neighbors would be looking and then after the body would be collected. After the media had gone these people would then return to their homes and i was always curious about how life continued amidst all this death and violence so i was looking at how tenderness and love continue in spaces like that and contested spaces like that and how people live normal lives and celebrate birthdays. And you know do karaoke after after having seen something like that happened to your neighbor. How has your own. Personal experience informed that kind of work. I think for me The overarching theme. Now of my stories are the stories that i worked the longest on at least has been about safe-space making You know in a in a lot of ways. My story about communities living amidst the drug wire was about how people navigating that particular environment we're trying to create safe spaces amidst their own communities when their communities were under attack The story that i did with none i was about how she was creating a safe space for me and also creating safe space for my family circling back to my background and my childhood growing up and having experienced drama. I began to understood what the process of safe-space making met and understanding that in the lack of these formal structures of support. Often women are creating those structures for support for themselves. So i think that that's been sort of a through line and all of my stories and all of the stories that at least i feel closest to is that Yeah how are people keeping each other safe okay. Can you describe the trauma that you experienced. Young person assaulted when i was fourteen And so that shook me a lot and you know whatever. The status quo was just moved like just completely was destroyed for me. the status quo in the sense of like your sense of security. What i believe to be true. What you know like the rules of what kept me safe just changed And i think a lot of the work that i do now in a lotta ways. What i'm curious about has to do with what. I'm trying to process as well in the world so i never leave a story without having really learned something new both about these other people but also about my own experiences. You know every time when you're working really hard on a story you get these sort of these moments where you just find someone who's incredible grace and who's incredible resilience in who's incredible way of processing the situation that you're trying to document just really reveal so much about humanity to you and i think that that's just what keeps me going in the work in. What keeps me interested in these stories. Because i'm always learning something you and i'm always finding things that are. I think are very surprising. Areas morales. Thank you very much thanks.

Who's Adopting AI for Chat and Customer Support? - with Abinash Tripathy of Helpshift
"So nash. I want to catch up with you here on the topic of who is adopting when it comes to artificial intelligence for chat. That's your world. It's wild you've been in there for what nine years now. Two thousand eleven or something like that. So you've seen a lot evolve you know when you think about who is really picking up on this who's starting to layer on top of their their serve chat conversations in a fruitful way. Who who do you see those early adopters or anything. They have in common with her industry size. Whatever a very good question. So i if you think about automation the effort in trying to get automation going in an enterprise. The biggest auto identity comes from people that are having high volumes of interactions. So you say when you find that as high volume deductions that are specific. Industries were customer service has very high volume of interactions and it's difficult visible in two ways. One is just they just have high volume second. Is the number of agency employees in contact center right. So if you think of industries that basically have the highest number of agence dealing with customer service. Those happen to be beat. Ac- industries anything that has to do with you know retail banking utilities telecom gaming which is where we got our start right because think about gaming for the second we gotta start in gaming because they are like any of the largest social media networks in the world they have hundreds of millions of people blaming online every month right so the monthly active users in gaming environment is massive. It's as biggest telecom and the volume is proportional to play the game. But i really think about the game. People wonder why gaming such big customer service. 'cause great games are just like casinos or retail outlets people play a game but to the game is a store and the store is usually selling stuff right that people buy an anytime people buy stuff that are all kinds of issues that can happen. The game itself may have issues. That are game blaze. She was that a fraud issues. This bullying issues all kinds of seeing the gaming world so we are starting gaming simply because gaming is a very digitally focused digital first world for them. The phone is a foreign concept. They don't want to have a phone based on people calling them on. The phones added costs so much money to serve a phone call so they want everything to be digital first until we dominate the gaming industry. Whether it is the largest games in the world that i can rattle off my mouth all of them of our help shifts right so that's where we got her start and now what we're seeing is. Lauded the bbc industries like to be dealt hospitality travel telecom deck banking at all. You know they have the dynamics but some of don those tend to be very traditional banking and banking does not have a digital first approach. Though i would argue both covid. Everybody's evaluating take time. What what their strategy is. Because you know if you noticed in observed when kobe what really happened. I wanted to lead this to you. Dan is that most of these. Contact centers. Operate with agents in manila manila down. And these workers that work in contact centers don't have internet cut home. Didn't even have computers. They had to come through physical facilities in manila Phone calls they couldn't even be online right so phone. Contact centers were shown hard immediately following all the lockdowns around the world. Right so my bank. For example chase dick would be when there was no way they could serve any of my phone calls right Goes if you had to do banking good luck that idea to wait for many days. Get through the phone contacts so everybody. Every large to a vertical is starting to think about how do better leverage digital and specifically in digital self service capabilities and so if you now that down subsurface capabilities broken up in gulick automation technology in lots or informational self service. So that's what i think. It's what we're doing is so interesting. Got it so just to touch on where you started. This kind of explanation was that you began in gaming because it's so digitally native and it's so averse to the phone right if you're a seventeen year old or a twenty seven year old in you're in the middle of a game. Yeah you're you're not gonna call a company you know that's something your mom would do. You're just going to chat or you're gonna put in an email ticket or whatever the case be so. That's a digitally native space. You mentioned retail. Do you see sort of basically for for retailers in terms of adopting a and chat from your perception looking out of the market whereas their trash and where whereas they're real buyers for this stuff is just a function of how big the retailer is or is it a function of both how big they are and their relative amount of revenue from e commerce. Because i would imagine that that would be indicative of their digital savvy on some level what are the factors that make a retailer more hot to trot more likely to actually be doing the kind of work that you guys do with other vendors or whatever i think do dynamics blame the bill segment. One is look at the gross margins of redel even e commerce businesses like amazon right. The gross margins are single digit vegetables single digit percent. Maybe even one percent right and with those kinds of gross margins yearly want the most effective customer service model right not that you want the cheapest most effective customer service model. And so it's it's there's a lotta margin pressure in the retail business. That's driving the shift digital but more importantly post covid. What has happened is if you look at the large format retailers like walmart for example for the first time what they've seen are completely changed sort of forced behavioral change in in the shopping process. Right so walmart now if you look at what's going on it's all like curbside delivery and cook's at pickup right so you can you can order ahead to a digital service like apple. A website like walmart dot com or target dot com and you can then scheduled to go pick up the products in the store during the walk into the store and walking the aisles. Thanks to the holiday shopping models changed. I would say that whole delivery. Big up curbside pickup. Even the food industry were observing this right. So all the restaurants like whether it's mcdonald's or at all like doubling down on the on the apps for ordering because it's all about pickup and got means you have to be able to order you don't want people calling the call center order. You would rather have a digital app where they can do that and so a lot of things can go wrong in that you know that whole process you order your orders delay and you need to talk to somebody deal time. messaging Becomes the perfect way to solve that and having people call a call center. Wait on the phone for twenty minutes back agent to those. The dynamics are mostly margin pressure and this changed sort of behavior of you know orbiting big our pickups or

Mysterious monolith appears in Newnan
"Move on finely chelsea at the manila. Just tell us out. The art world has reacted to the appearance of this enormous metal block in the utah test at first. The world responded in a sort of excited and generous way. So i think this thing appeared. It was spotted by a helicopter. That was being some environmentalists. These guys were counting bighorn. Sheep in the utah desert and spotted this. I think it's about twelve foot. High shiny metal monolith there amongst the red rocks and for a while. It was exciting. Because i think there was. There was some intimation that might be a an unknown work. By the great scope to joan mccracken. He created his planks in his columns. These great shiny minimalist objects. Which have this have a mystical power to stand in front of them. They sort of reflect you but you kind of lose yourself in them and so everybody was very excited about that quite quickly. he's gallery said we're actually no. It's not by him. He's got rivets on he'd never vs rivets and things like this and then they sort of all these sorts of other events these other molesters appearing in the art will very bored very quickly.

Interview With Shawn Van Dyke
"John thanks for taking the time to come and chat with us today. How's it. How's it going on doing great man. Thanks for having me. will you give us. I read your bio on your website. But will you give me in the audience of big picture of your background and kind of have to where you are now in. kind of. Give us the backstory. Yeah sir so by education and training or by just sending a lot of tuition money to the university of tennessee. I eventually ended up with a couple of engineering degrees. So i started my career in construction even though that might offend some people when this always used to be an engineer i make fun of engineers used to be one but i got a degree in civil engineering and then a master's in structural engineering and then went out and did the engineering thing for several years and then realized i don't really know how to build anything and i wanted to get out on the job site so transition from i'd say transition from engineering into construction. I really got laid off from the engineering firm. Heart was working for In went and joined project management team for large commercial contractor that. Put me out on large commercial sites Building all sorts of seven are really really like that Did that for a few years than my way. Up working for some architects and then for real estate developer Doing construction management so. I ended up traveling around the country building commercial real estate projects. You know big stores in the out lot developing out lots and all of that kind of stuff in that for several years. And by this time i was married had five kids now so the second kid was on the way my wife was like. I'm glad you're enjoying your job but You gotta stick around mean. I was on the road three or four days a week wherever the projects were so. That was my first business. Started back in. Two thousand five was a construction management and real estate development company. I'm here in knoxville tennessee. So as doing that work here locally then two thousand eight hit and banks were not lending money to real estate developers anymore So i transitioned from there and started a remodeling in general contracting business People these days called a pivot. I didn't realize pivoting at the time. I just time. I had four kids. Three four came back them So put the tool belt on and started a small construction company. Built it up from there and then one of my subcontractors might trim and melwork subcontractor young guy. We went to church together. His business was blowing up because he got into the high end. Trim and melwork work Market here in our area and typical difficult construction business owner great craftsmen horrible business person and he approached me one day and said man. Your i like the way that you run your construction business and everything's always organized I wanna talk to you about how to run a better business. So we met up for lunch and was talking to him about that and giving them some tips and tricks. And and i didn't know he was interviewing me at the time he said. Okay well i think. I need to hire somebody to run my construction business. Much mill work company and He's an acid yeah. I think you should do that. Because you're a horrible business person but you're an awesome. You're awesome craftsmen in great with the guys out in the field and the work was just unbelievable and he just said okay. I want you to do it. And so i thought i was like i got my own thing going on. I'm okay and he's a great salesman and he's like listen. You have a small construction company is gonna take you twenty years to get where you want to be. I'm already in those projects as a subcontractor we've landed some really high end stuff but this business that we just acquired meaning that the projects coming up he said it's gonna put me out of business doing these projects because i don't know what i'm doing and He he so he said I want you to come and run the business. And i thought i bluff bluffing okay. The only way. I'm going to run your business that you let me run the business. You run the field our on the business. But i'm i'm in charge of the business side of it. And he said no problem and he literally pulled out of manila folder with the entire business and it just random paper. Here's the business slid across the table and said you run it and went home talked to my wife and said this is a crazy idea. This is really stupid but my friends gonna suffer and he was right. It was an opportunity to get on some really into high level projects high end projects that i'd already always been wanting to do in such kind of step back and said all right. Maybe we should do this and So bit the bullet went on went. Joined that team as a as the chief operating officer and at the time we had six guys out in the field in within eighteen months we were at twenty two guys in. He was in debt and not making any money. And we kinda turn that around and and that wasn't all me. We had great team a great owner. That had a really good vision and i was just the execute and putting systems in place. Oh did that for about four years and then got another crazy idea saying. Hey what i've done with my businesses and now with this treadmill work business. I think i see the problem here. Within an industry. I can help a lot more business. Owners with systems. All i know construction. It's all i've ever done so after about four years of being the executive there. I left that that job and started writing books and and speaking at industry events and now it's four years later and i've been doing coaching and consulting work strictly for construction business owners since those back in twenty sixteen. So yeah right up for years. We've been doing this Before we move on but are you recommending to your kids. They go to college. You spend a lotta time in college. You said a master's in engineering of some type so talk about that for a second. Are you gonna man. You're gonna make mom hears this. He's gonna get offended. And it. Every time i say but m. i. encouraging my kids to go to college no not specifically i'm encouraging my kids to develop skills in areas that interest them and figuring out how they can make money at it now. Some of those things that some of my kids are interested in now will require them to go to college. But especially as we're seeing in twenty twenty man colleges change. They're still the same tuition rate but they're not allowing you to go on campus and all of the other things that higher said that here's where value is. Now they're saying nope can't come to campus. We're going to do all virtually. So i think the whole world has changed so but to answer your question. No i don't encourage my kids to go to 'cause. I don't discourage them from going to college. The i feel like it's my job as a parent when you're out on your own which i got four boys in a baby girl. I say baby girl. she's five. She's always going to be my baby girl. The boys they're on their own at eighteen. You better figure out how you're gonna make money at eighteen and if that means you're going to college then you know what i took me. I was on the five year plan to get my undergraduate now. Four year plan right but i worked the entire time and paid for most of my most of my college through work. They can do the same thing so And it looked statistically it takes most people at least six years to get an undergraduate degree and only forty percent of incoming freshman even graduate with a degree at all. So yeah do. I encourage them to go that path. Only if it interests them. Only only if that's that's where their future light. Hey you know. One of my kids wants to be a doctor yet. You probably better go to college. I have several of them that are interested in computer stuff in graphic design and other things and got my fourteen year old son this year to start working for a contractor and over the summer and he came home with more money and more cash in his pocket. And said yeah. That's what happens when you go work. And that's what happened with skill so
Fire devastates world's largest sand island
"Gladys boo knows firsthand. the devastation climate change is already visiting on the world. The twenty five year old has vivid memories of kale island a tiny islet in the solomon islands archipelago where she used to swim and barbecue on the white sand beaches. It's also where her grandparents used to live decades back but kale island no longer exists. It was declared lost in two thousand sixteen after it fully submerged beneath the water a victim of rising sea levels. She worries more of her home. In the south pacific could share the same fate if global temperatures continue to rise at the same pace and just decades. My country's map has changed drastically. She says boo and others who have personally experienced the worst effects of climate change took center stage at a two week. Summit for youth climate activists. The virtual event was organized out of frustration at the postponement of the twenty twenty united nations climate. Change conference also called cop. Twenty six meeting between nations called mock cop twenty six. The summit was attended by more than three hundred fifty delegates from one hundred eighteen countries and included speeches from activists and stakeholders from around the world including the uk government minister in charge of the original cop twenty six in a year dominated by pandemic related disruptions. The mockup to six may be one of the largest international meetings focused on climate change. Even if it lacked official status but another goal of the event was to elevate the voices of those most affected by climate. Change it's a conscious decision. Based on consensus among youth activists that people in the developing world and other marginalized voters are not being represented in the climate movement which has largely focused on activists from developed nations. Be a greta tune. Berg's fridays for future or extinction rebellion which was established in the uk. The climate movement has been often inaccessible and is generally dominated by middle class. White people in the global north says a mercedes rodriguez richer to an activist from the uk student climate network. We can't stand up to this challenge without listening to the people whose voices matter the most in an attempt to be more inclusive. The virtual conference says granted more delegates. To what organizers call most affected people in areas or mapa including the philippines and bangladesh these countries and others were granted five delegates as opposed to three from most developed nations. Giving them more speaking time. More than seventy percent of the delegates represented at the summit or from developing countries. Having more delegates also gave these countries more representation and say in the wording of the final statement from mockup twenty six many behind. Mock cop twenty six. See this as a first step toward changing the emphasis of the youth climate movement. Several studies have shown that a warming planet will disproportionately affect developing countries more than developed nations however mainstream climate movements of faced criticism for not being inclusive of the most vulnerable nations earlier. This year. vanessa. Nakata a ugandan. Climate activist was cropped out of a photo in which she posed with four activists from europe including gratitude berg.
