"Very significant story. I agree completely. So on that note, Dan, you recently spent time with bear's legend Steve mcmichael and some of his closest friends and family members. First, can you just paint a picture of the scene for us? Where exactly were you and what was going on? So I was in his home in suburban Chicago where his wife misty mcmichael has set him up to hopefully live out the rest of his days. The doctors told her that they really would like to have him in an assisted living situation from then on, but she wouldn't have it. She said, no, I want to bring him home and I want to be his caretaker as much as I can be. She has help from some nurses who come quite frequently. He set up in his own bedroom and there's a lot of medical equipment in the room. He's got a medical bed special bed. On the wall over his bed is a big cross, and then next to that. Is a great kind of an artist rendition of him when he was a player. And it's based off of a photograph of him and it kind of reminds you everything that he was and there's a stark contrast between everything he was in that photo and everything he is now that ALS is obviously taking a toll on his body and his physical condition. Steve was always very lively with his jokes and just talking to folks in jail. The day that I saw him, there were a number of people kind of some in and out, but among them were some of his former teammates, including Dan Hampton, who is almost like a brother to him, you know, they were line mates on the bears, the great bears teams in the 1980s, and you know, they kind of talk about old times and relive the past as old teammates always do. You run them down and tell them. You tackles them. What is wrong with the 13? 25. Losing the game. The great thing about that situation and that environment is that despite the suffering that he's going through, which is significant, he really lifts up the other people around him. No one would want to be in the situation that he's in. He's got a very uplifting attitude, a positive outlook and, you know, he smiles and he laughs, and it wouldn't be easy for a lot of people in the same position that he's in to be as upbeat as he is. Well, let's come back to present day steeping Michael a little later because for now Dan, I want to remind the clock for a minute and talk about the Steven Michael that's in that picture beside his bed that you mentioned. Can you take us back to the 1980s and remind us what kind of player Steve mcmichael was? Well, first of all, he was part of arguably the greatest defense that ever existed and really one of the pillars of the greatest defense that ever existed is kind of junkyard dog defense that literally barked at opponents. They were legendary. He read it beautifully. They were just a ferocious unit. Dan Hampton, Richard dent Mike Singletary. All of them are Hall of Famers with the exception of mcmichael. He was a really good pass rusher. Like 95 career sacks, which ranks high on the all time sack list among defensive tackles and also was a very stout run player. Out of a shotgun formation here's the snap to Chris Chandler. Looks downfield. Hit from behind. Steve mcmichael. A guy who kind of always did his job to the point that others were able to kind of freelance a little bit and do things that enable them to make splash plays. I'll tell you what he's probably the most underrated player in the NFC, if not, if not the NFL, he was so overshadowed by Hampton and Singletary. You know, I don't think he ever got the glory that he deserved to tell you what the guy comes and he fights every game. So really, he was an outstanding player that probably never was given a credit that he deserved. And toss about some of the things that gave him such a colorful personality. Well, you know, he was a Texas guy. He grew up in freer Texas where they sometimes hunted rattlesnake and he liked to have a good time. He was the type of guy who could throw back The Crown royal and get after a little bit off the field as well as Anne. It's funny, Steve mcmichael is a guy who has like this dual personality. He's nuts off the field, but on the field he's very, very straight ahead, very meticulous, does not make mistakes a very disciplined ballplayer. He was initially drafted by the New England Patriots, but he did not fit in there and they caught him. And ended up coming to Chicago and, you know, just found a bunch of like minded people. He never had his personality suppressed in Chicago. Ended up being a big celebrity in terms of doing television work as well. And he did some things that were pretty crazy on TV. Do you know me? I play for the Chicago Bears too. Every game since 1981 in these freezing winners. So you know I've done my duty. Why is it only getting noticed when I hit some newscaster with shaving cream or a whisky bottle? And Dan, can you explain Steve mcmichael's pretty unusual nickname as well? Yeah, well, he's got two nicknames. One is called Mongo, who is his Mongo anyway. Well, my goal in exactly a who is more of a what? Which is after the character that Alex caris played in blazing saddles. Of course, Hall of Fame defensive tackle himself. And the character Mongo is famous for punching a horse in the mouth and knocking him out. Hey, you can't park that animal over there. It's illegal. Just kind of this crazy guy that Steve mcmichael certainly persona 5. And then his other nickname was Ming the merciless, you know, after the character from the science fiction show that was just, you know, had no mercy for anyone that he came up against. After the earthquake, some tidal waves they won't be quite the human beings you'll remember. They'll be more tractable. Easier for you to rule. And the name of Ming. You know, he certainly had some of that in him too. I love that people looked at Steve mcmichael and were like, that guy looks like he could knock out a horse. And he definitely could, you know, one of the strongest players of his era without a doubt. You know, I knew him back when he was playing. And was once with him in a weight room and saw him put 500 pounds on a bench press bar in most guys when they bench press, especially a lot of weight, they'll put their hands kind of far out a little bit, which actually shortens the distance that you have to go up and down. He put his hands kind of close together. It almost a close grip bench press. And it was just tremendously powerful. Well, day and after Steve mcmichael's pro football career wrapped up. And I'm actually not sure how many people know this about him. He ended up making a transition to another very high profile form of entertainment. I guess you could say, can you talk a little about him becoming a pro wrestler and what his career was like? If anyone was born to be a pro wrestler with Steve mcmichael. He picks him up. Knocks his head right off. You know, he had ponytail down to his rear end and he just fit the part perfectly. This is a championship place to showcase championship athletes. You know, his ex-wife Deborah was kind of a foil who was in a lot of plots that they wrote where other wrestlers were attracted to her and he was fighting down the wrestlers and then she dumped him and went with another wrestler. And now he's watched once his wife, look at the cold steering giver. Yeah, and he's got that look like he believed the difference happening to him. I can't believe it's happening. And life actually ended up imitating art because they did end up getting a divorce and she ended up marrying Stone Cold Steve Austin. So that was pretty funny. I guess I wasn't funny to them, but maybe funny to the people who are watching pro wrestling. He was one of the four horsemen for a long time. Partner with Rick flair and RNA Anderson, but it was a nice little career running ahead for about four or 5 years. What else has he done in his post football days? Well, he's been one of these guys who's been a professional X bear, really, and he's made a living off of being this great bear. He's done some media work. He has a restaurant called Mongo mcmichaels. At one point, he ran for the mayor of a suburban town in Chicago called romeoville did not win. And he's also been a member of a band with some of his bears teammates, including Dan Hampton and Otis Wilson, called the Chicago 6. And he was quite a singer. So he always kind of had a good amount to do as a former bear. Sure sounds like it. Well, walk us through when and how Steve mcmichael got this diagnosis that changed his life. You know, I spent some time with him in the summer of 2020 and, you know, I noticed that he had lost a lot of weight, really didn't think much of it. He said at the time he was having problems because he had some neck issues that were kind of causing him problems with his grip and his fingers. And nobody really thought anything of it. They thought it was all related to the fact that he hit his head against other people for a living for many years. He ended up going to a few different places to find out what was going on and every place he went. Came back with what we think it might be ALS. It's a disease that attacks the nerve cells that are responsible for muscle control. It takes away your ability to move all of your body parts, eventually it takes away your ability to speak to swallow, ultimately it even kind of suppresses your breathing. There is no definitive test that says you have ALS, but more and more symptoms kept showing that that's what he did in fact have. You know, he couldn't open a bottle. After a while he was having a hard time driving. So it became pretty clear in that fall that that's what was going on. Because I'm not going to be out in the public anymore. I'm not going to be playing in the Chicago 6 anymore. I'm not going to be on the ESPN radio anymore. He announced that he had ALS in April of 2021. And the public's response was overwhelming and heartwarming. There were several fundraisers for him. There was a GoFundMe page. The ALS is very expensive. Proposition. And he did not have the means to pay for everything that he needed to pay for and insurance does not step in on that either. Mcmichael has been overwhelmed by the outpouring of compassion he's felt during this fight and he couldn't financially do it without the benefit of both the NFL and the bears. There.

"Second trial starts today in the 2020 murder of ahmaud Arbery a black man Three white men have already been sentenced to life in prison by the state of Georgia for chasing Arbery down in their pickup trucks and killing him as he ran through their neighborhood just outside of Brunswick Jury selection begins today in a federal hate crimes trial that will center on whether the killing was racially motivated NPR's Debbie Elliott joins us now hi Debbie Good morning Good morning So first tell us how this hate crimes case differs from the state trial last year that ended in murder convictions Well in this trial father and son Greg and Travis mcmichael and their neighbor William roddy Bryan are facing federal charges that they violated Arbery's civil rights and that they target hit targeted him specifically because of his race because he was black The state murder conviction last year did not address motive whatsoever This case will center on it So what kind of evidence are we expecting to come out during the trial Well investigators have said that they will testify that they found evidence of racial animus on the defendant's cell phone messages and social media posts for instance Travis mcmichael allegedly used racial slurs He linked black people to criminal behavior anti supported a vigilante like response to that Bobby Henderson is a civil rights activist in Brunswick who I spoke with And he told me that he thinks all of that needs to come to the surface here The determining factor as to why they gave chase to was that he was black It was their motivation Why felt he was not supposed to be in the neighborhood in the first place And it's important that people understand that those things were the motivation So that they can begin to really interrogate their own biases Henderson and others see this hate crimes trial as part of the larger racial reckoning that's been going on in the country Since 2020 when Arbery was killed George Floyd was killed and Breonna Taylor was killed So last week it appeared that the mcmichaels were willing to plead guilty and admit that they targeted Arbery because he was black What happened Well they had said they'd reached a plea agreement with federal prosecutors but the judge in this case rejected that deal It included a provision that would have asked the state that the mcmichaels spend 30 years in federal custody before they finished out their live sentence in a Georgia prison Arbery's family was very upset about that and objected in a hearing saying it was not fair to give their sons murderers the option of better conditions in federal prison So the mcmichaels ended up sticking with their not guilty pleas That should complicate jury selection that starts today because the question is whether potential jurors will be affected knowing that these men had already been willing to admit racial motivation before the trial Yeah Arbery's killers are going to spend their life in jail no matter what happens in this federal case right So let's talk about why this federal hate crimes case just is seen as so important You know I put this question to former Massachusetts governor deval Patrick He's a former head of the civil rights division at the Justice Department Historically he says federal prosecutors would have sought a conviction on hate crimes like this as sort of a backstop a way to seek justice whether or not stayed in local prosecutors went after such crimes Today Patrick says it's more about taking a national stand against racist behavior In the most egregious examples even if there has been a conviction in a state court there's a national interest in there being federal consequences And I think this is one of those cases We should also note that two years ago the state of Georgia did not have a state hate crimes law that would have applied here at the public outcry over Arbery's murder changed that NPR's Debbie Elliott thank you for your reporting You're welcome This is NPR.

"Courtroom the three white men charged in the death of ahmaud Arbery were found guilty of murder After deliberating for about ten hours the nearly all white jury found Greg mcmichael his son Travis mcmichael and their neighbor William roddy Bryan guilty of nearly all the criminal counts they faced Civil rights attorney and former prosecutor Charles colman junior is here to talk more about it Welcome back to the program So glad to be here Thank you for having me Is this a case where people could see the verdict coming meaning what do we know about how the prosecutors laid things out that brought us to this point Well I don't think that we can ever see a verdict coming I don't want us to take for granted any verdict because everyone is always going to see some things differently And so the fact that they arrived at this verdict together was a testament to how clearly the prosecution was able to lay out their case to walk the jury through the charges one by one for east defendant and to connect each of the defendant's actions to the specific things that they were charged for and allow the jury to make a very pinpointed very clear decision which is what we saw and why we have the verdict that we do To get into the detail of that you have Greg mcmichael Travis mcmichael and roddy Bryan their neighbor who actually filmed this killing Can you talk about what their defense was that in a way has been rejected by the jury It was heavily on self defense That was the idea the idea was that this was something that they did out of fear for their lives For mister Brian the argument that his attorney attempted to advance was his client didn't have knowledge that the mcmichaels intended to do whatever it was that they intended to do But that his client should not have been held accountable because his role overall was minimal The jury did not buy either of those things I suspect with respect to the mcmichaels the provocation was just so great that it's very difficult to overcome it with a claim of self defense In the case of mister Bryan they did not convict him on the murder with malice basically They convicted William Ronny Bryant of what's called felony murder So what I see when I look at this verdict tells me that the jury was very careful to look at the specific charges and wanted to make sure that they got it right So the jury rejected the idea that their actions that day were somehow self defense and now I understand that the three still face federal hate crime charges So how does this set up that next case Well it's just up the basics I think this notion of a citizen's arrest which is also what the mcmichaels attempted to advance as part of their initial decision of defense before they switched gears Mid trial All of those things have been blown out of the water I think that we are likely going to hear during the federal civil rights prosecution of this case a greater deal around race I believe there was some conversation about the Internet search history of mister mister Bryan the use of the racial epithets as well as I think the presence of confederate flag on I believe the mcmichael's truck All of those are types of things that will add substance to some of the other elements of this crime but it remains to be seen what's going to happen once this interesting into the federal courts How do you think about this case in terms of its victim What does this moment mean to you as someone who watches these things closely Well I think if you're very important moment for about Aubrey I think it's important moment for his family and loved ones I do hope that they receive some sense of closure but in the larger scale of things it still is one that should cause concern And the reason why it should cause concern is because as that verdict was right today there were legions of Americans who held their breath We as a country can not rest until that feeling of needing to hold our breath to ensure that the justice system works as it is supposed to no longer exist And so it's important that we do not conflate the notion of justice for the accountability Justice unfortunately for our arbor he's out of reach because he's no longer with us and can never be made whole But accountability is what we saw today in that courtroom And I submit that that's a good first step That civil rights attorney and former prosecutor Charles Coleman thank you for your time Thank you so much.

"Welcome to the martech podcast. Today we're going to talk about advertising mechanics across new media channels. But before we get to today's interview, we're going to kick off the show with a marketing minute, where we invite a friend of the martech podcast to help us answer listener questions in 60 seconds or less. Here for today's marketing minute is John chance, who's the founder and president at duct tape marketing consultant and he's also the host of the duct tape marketing podcast. Where John interviews authors, experts and thought leaders who share business and marketing tips, tactics and resources for small businesses. And the duct tape marketing podcast is also a fellow member of the HubSpot podcast network. And John has been kind enough to answer a question from G two meta, who is the director of Marta and client success at intelligence bank and G two asks what automations have organizations implemented in their middle and back office teams to better serve their end users. All right, here's John's answer. You know, automation can be a great way to create a better backend office experience and serve your customers your end users better. Obviously, the most basic things like a CRM, like a help desk. Those kinds of tools certainly make the communication make the record keeping of communicating even easier. But I find that one of the best tools to automate is to also create a hub so that your project management, your help desk, your CRM, or all talking through a hub, the hub that we use that I find is really powerful for this is slack. Slack keeps us out of email so that we're not firing back and forth as we try to serve clients, but it also has so many integrations now that allow us to keep conversations separate and keep everybody on the same page, really for as much time as we need, we can keep those threads going. Thanks, John. If you're interested in hearing more of John Gantz on the duct tape marketing podcast or any of the other great hosts from the HubSpot podcast network, you can go to HubSpot dot com slash podcast network. All right, on with today's interview.

So far this week Anna and I have talked about how the OTT industry is surviving the cookie less era. And yesterday we talked about which publishers are winning in the OTT competition. Today we're going to wrap up our conversation talking about whether streaming games are the new advertising gait. But before we hear from today's guest, I'd like to take a moment to thank blue shift for sponsoring this interview. We all know that marketing and the technology that supports it is rapidly evolving. Last year it was GDPR. This year it's third party cookies, and who knows how the landscape is going to change next year. The fact is, traditional marketing platforms are struggling to keep pace with the needs of today's marketers because they're built to focus on channel execution and not a 360° view of customer behaviors. And that's why you need blue shifts, smart hubs, CDP. You see blue shift both improves customer engagement and drives meaningful results by unifying your customers data so you can deliver relevant and personalized omnichannel experiences to the prospects and customers that matter the most. So if you're ready to drive better customer engagement increased loyalty, our friends at blue shift have created a guide to successful CDP RFPs that will help you make the right martech decision for your business.

All right, here's the last part of my conversation with Anna mcmichaels, the partnership director of vlog box. And welcome back to the mar tech podcast. At Benjamin, nice to talk to you again. Pleasure to have you back on the show and wrap up our conversation here. So far this week we talked about how the OTT and CTV industry is able to survive the cookie less era because there's so much granular contextual targeting. People could target specific channels specific shows, and that there is this sort of phenomenon of publishers moving from being creators on things like YouTube into CTV and there's a sense of acquisition possibilities that we're seeing, the creators really get gobbled up by larger competitions. And so that's why they're winning in this space. We talked about my favorite creator blippy, who my kids love, getting acquired by moon bug for, you know, a $100 million or something ridiculous like that. There's also a new phenomenon happening in this OTT space, which is advertising and streaming games talk to me a little bit about what's happening in the streaming game space. So I guess number one news right now that Netflix is about to launch their first game that has already planned to be impaired in their platform. So that's kind of a big thing because I've been reading a lot about this and I had a feeling that Netflix really don't see their competitor of other streaming services, but they're looking at some of the companies that they have higher user engagement. And it's not necessarily entertainment. It's mostly gaming. Like it was just look at a couple of those big CTV platforms. So Amazon and Apple TV, they have about 1722% of game in apps. Out of all of the apps that they have 1722% is gaming. So I think it tell us something. And then Roku, they have 2% gaming apps, but the second place of usage for Roku is actually gaming. So it's highly engaging content. It's highly engaging and entertaining product that people in and towards do. And since it's very popular, it's highly engaging, of course, it's open a huge gate for advertisers to use. Okay, so there's a new opportunity, but there's also large new players coming into this space. You know, I don't think advertising in games is necessarily a new phenomenon, is it? It's not, but specifically on CTV, it's a little bit different because they have highly engaged and kind of like easy games to play because you played it on the remote. Okay, so basically what we're talking about here is the idea of playing essentially iTunes games on the larger TV. So the apple has their arcade, you're playing with the remote, you're not playing like on a PS3. It's a different type of fidelity in a different type of experience. So talk to me about why Netflix is getting into this space. And what's the opportunity for advertisers to take advantage? So speaking of opportunities, generally across the board, really gaming, tend to be more ad supported. So that's always been there. So I think that's why it's really placed for advertising. And then when it comes to the TV, and we're talking about ads on TV, those ask going to have better placements and really high quality. So it will look a lot better on the bigger screen. So it seems like this is a departure from Netflix's normal business model, which is they're a SaaS model. You're paying a reoccurring fee a monthly fee to be able to get access to the content Netflix generally hasn't put advertising in any of their content. Why are they doing it in the gaming space? I think the reason why they do it in a game in space is because they made a huge shift with a House of Cards that was like their biggest shift of the company of their content strategy. And this is just the second step for them to be different to be first. We can provide.

"The closing arguments today wrapped up kind of what stuck out with you What was a message to jurors Prosecutor Linda Dana koski delivered a very forceful rebuttal Some of the strongest language that she's really used talking about the credibility of some of the witnesses from the defense especially Travis mcmichael himself making the point that Travis mcmichael has changed his story from day one None of the mcmichaels or roddy Bryan used words like you know we were trying to effectuate a citizen's arrest that day in their first statements to police now that's not legally required They have formed a very compelling legal argument since acting rashly on the day in question I understand too there were some moments that really especially got to ahmaud Arbery's mother Yeah I think this mother more than a mods mother but she did in fact leave the courtroom during defense attorney Laura hopes statement yesterday She said basically over and over again that Ahmad Arbery was in fact committing burglary on the occasions that he had stopped by the House under construction and satilla shores And as she's describing that she sort of chooses to describe a mods long legs and long dirty toenails And it was a moment that like I said I think more than just a mod's mother heard and sort of felt was a line too far Any idea of the effect of those closing arguments when you think about situations like that and then you think about what the prosecution said today do you think any of that is mind changing see if you were a juror I think that for whoever wanted to hear a sympathetic argument for the mcmichaels and roddy Bryan That was there That was displayed So if anyone finds those defendants stories to be credible I mean we will see we'll see some acquittals potentially There is a lot of talk that especially for William roddy Bryan that murder charge may be hard to stick on Because of you know if you believe him he was late to the scene so to speak he did not know as he claims that the mcmichaels were armed and that he would even be part of this in the way that he was Your sense of what the feeling is in Brunswick if one or all of the defendants is acquitted That's a good question I don't think we've heard much from the family members about how would you feel if roddy Bryan were to get off and maybe the Michaels didn't What I know is that the prosecutor's argument in this case has been that all three elements from all three of the defendants were necessary in order to get to the place where ahmaud Arbery got shot What that means is that without roddy Bryant's truck sort of blocking the path and some say forcing ahmaud Arbery into a ditch off of the road without that he wouldn't have turned back around and headed in the direction where Travis mcmichael and his father were on Outside of the courtroom Melissa in Brunswick what was the mood today as those arguments wrapped up and the case went to the jury I think the mood today was very quiet I think there's a sense that everything that has been done and everything that could have been brought up has been brought up and you know we asked Arbery's family about did they feel like the prosecutor did her best work today And they felt confident that we're going to have a guilty verdict We shall see We shall W a belisa Hagen in Brunswick for us Lisa thank you so much for the update Thanks Jim And an update now on the traffic.

"Content creators leaning towards that model as well. Time to take a one minute break to hear from our sponsor HubSpot. The holiday season is upon us and it's time to think about what matters most in life. Real connections. And your personal life is probably means spending and hopefully enjoying some extra time with your spouse, kids, Friends, extended family, and at work, it's also a great time to think about making connections. Sure, it's not all Turkey and stuffing around the office, but there's always room for connections with your customers your team and of course your martech stack. And that's why the HubSpot CRM is ready to connect the dots for your business. And just like how I'm always tinkering with my recipe for mashed potatoes, HubSpot is always adding new ingredients for marketers, like their forecasting tool that gives a bird's eye view of your entire pipeline or their custom report builder that connects and converts your data into real-time reporting. If you're ready to learn how the HubSpot CRM platform can connect the dots for your business, go to HubSpot dot com. All right, here's the rest of today's interview. So it's interesting to me. I was shocked and honestly, my wife and I have looked up blippi's net worth and it's in the tens of millions of dollars, which just as incredible for a guy that was on YouTube making silly little videos for kids. But I'm like, oh, blip is really blowing up. He's on Amazon now. What are those relationships look like for creators to get on some of the streaming services? How hard is that? How are they compensated? How does that whole relationship work? So for example, I know players like blippy dipping acquired by moonwalk entertainment, so now they kind of take care of all of that promotion. But if we are talking about smaller YouTubers, it's really, really easy to get in because even local what they offer, you really can just go on the Roku platform and create your own channel by yourself. Of course, it's going to be kind of like a constructor easy, really simple model, nothing special, but if you're going to use a developer team, maybe third party companies who can help you to develop your channel, you'll have a lot better success was the type of channel that you have. But it's very easy to get an especially now. Even our company at this point, we create and channels for YouTubers and it's been very successful, launching them and they have all sorts of opportunities of acquiring new audience and monetizing their audience on CTV. Wait, blippy got acquired moon bug bought blippy in his content? And coca Mellon and all sorts of things that you see on the website. They essentially like a big TV aggregator. First off, everyone that's listening were all in the wrong industry. If you're not creating kids videos on YouTube, you're doing something wrong because apparently you can make millions and millions of dollars go through an acquisition and somebody else does all the work for you. That's who's winning in CTV. It's the blippy of the world. And here, you know, you and me are sitting in an office sweating over a laptop. Something's wrong with the world here that the creators are able to have these type of experience. And obviously I'm kidding and I'm partially a creator myself, but how is it possible for someone to become a creator and distribute their content? So easily and is this really who's winning or are there larger enterprises that are basically finding talent and cultivating it or is it the creators that are just becoming big and then getting bought? I think it's really interested market, of course, very competitive. Of course, big companies get bored by bigger CTV names. But generally, if you kind of got the direction to go and see to me, you will be winning because you essentially work in a whole new ecosystem that is still growing. And if you look at the growth, yes, audience is big. It's not as big as YouTube where we have 20 billion active users versus connected TV is about 200 million. So yes, it's not as huge of a presence, but it keeps growing. And if you're looking at new generation and in millennials, or Gen Z, no one is going to be purchasing cable anymore. Everyone's going to watch it on TV. And it just get very popular in OTT. I mean, the connectivity is still accessible through your phones. So it's definitely a big system to consider. I can not believe that I just Googled moon bug acquires blip and read that moon bug acquired blippy and CoComelon for a $120 million. I am banging my head on the table. I can't believe we're sitting here working when people are making like how many figures is that? 9 figures to make kids shows. That's who's winning the CCTV OTT game here, everybody. It's the creators that are cultivating audiences that are selling and being acquired. That said, in terms of the marketing perspective, who are some of the companies that are doing well, not necessarily in monetizing in CCTV, selling their own advertising, but who's taking advantage of the media and doing a nice job growing their business on the backs of some of these creators. I would say anyone who works on the programmatic side because it's purely programmatic right now. So old big programmatic companies exchanges that are connected to me. Definitely take advantage of that. So the programmatic advertisers are not only plugging in in the digital space where they're able to do sort of display and social media retargeting, but they're also able to take advantage of the OTT TV targeting as well getting in front of those blip type audiences. Oh my God, blippy got a $100 million for kids content. And that wraps up this episode of the martech podcast.

"Going to talk about advertising mechanics across new media channels. But before we get to today's interview, we're going to kick off the show with a marketing minute, where we invite a friend of the martech podcast to help us answer listener questions in 60 seconds or less. Here for today's marketing minute is John chance, who's the founder and president at duct tape marketing consultant and he's also the host of the duct tape marketing podcast. Where John interviews authors, experts and thought leaders who share business and marketing tips, tactics and resources for small businesses. And the duct tape marketing podcast is also a fellow member of the HubSpot podcast network. And John has been kind enough to answer a question from G two meta, who is the director of Marta and client success at intelligence bank and G two asks what automations have organizations implemented in their middle and back office teams to better serve their end users. All right, here's John's answer. You know, automation can be a great way to create a better backend office experience and serve your customers your end users better. Obviously, the most basic things like a CRM, like a help desk. Those kinds of tools certainly make the communication make the record keeping of communicating even easier. But I find that one of the best tools to automate is to also create a hub so that your project management, your help desk, your CRM, or all talking through a hub, the hub that we use that I find is really powerful for this is slack. Slack keeps us out of email so that we're not firing back and forth as we try to serve clients, but it also has so many integrations now that allow us to keep conversations separate and keep everybody on the same page, really for as much time as we need, we can keep those threads going. Thanks, John.

Yesterday, Anna and I talked about how the OTT and CTV industries are surviving in the cookie less era. And today we're going to continue the conversation talking about which publishers are winning the OTT competition. But before we hear from today's guest, I'd like to take a moment to thank blue shift for sponsoring this interview. We all know that marketing and the technology that supports it is rapidly evolving. Last year it was GDPR. This year its third party cookies, and who knows how the landscape is going to change next year. The fact is, traditional marketing platforms are struggling to keep pace with the needs of today's marketers because they're built to focus on channel execution and not a 360° view of customer behaviors. And that's why you need blue shifts, smart hub CDP. You see blue shift both improves customer engagement and drives meaningful results by unifying your customers data so you can deliver relevant and personalized omnichannel experiences to the prospects and customers that matter the most.

All right, here's the second part of my conversation with Anna mcmichael, the partnership's director at vlog box. And I welcome back to the mar tech podcast. Thank you. Excited to have you back and to continue our conversation. For anybody that didn't listen yesterday, Anna and I started off talking about what is happening in terms of targeting in the video advertising space, the OTT and CTV spaces, and my takeaway from that conversation is the video advertising industry, which is kind of replicating what has been done in traditional TV advertising might actually not be as impacted by the decrease in third party cookies because there is so much granular contextual targeting, really what I'm saying is you don't just have to follow your consumers around every show. They're watching. You could actually get really granular by targeting people based on what channels they're watching and specifically what shows their interested in. So even though we're not retargeting consumers, you could still reach very targeted consumers with this methodology. That said, Anna, I want to talk to you a little bit about an update in what's actually happening in OTT today. You know, who's winning the OTT competition? What are some of the brands publishers and media partners that are really taking advantage of this space? Yeah, I think there is really, really many players who are trying to get into the space and when I talk about this, the first thing to come to mind is a lot of YouTubers that essentially has a lot of media inventory and they just approach into CTV space. And a lot of them already have their content and on svod model or avod and they really take advantage of the space. So I would say it really, the publishers who are winning this game is those who understand that CTV and OTT is truly a new ecosystem for them. And the ecosystem has so many opportunities for growth and is still going to be growing and evolving with ecommerce implementation and things like that. So really companies who understand that it's time to consider and have their content and promote their content on CTV is definitely going to win that game. And are you familiar with the video star blippy? Of course. Okay. You say, of course, I've had children for 5 years. Blippy was new to me. Everything that I had heard was keep your kids off YouTube because if they're watching YouTube, you're always like three clicks away from Hitler. Yeah. You could be watching a video with Elmo, and then there's all sorts of content that is not healthy for children. And so we downloaded the YouTube kids app in the first video that came up was blippy and for anybody that doesn't have kids blippy is an X military officer. I think he was in the army or the navy turned kids video star. He walks around with orange suspenders a blue shirt and an orange hat and big glasses, and he tores all sorts of kids events and parks and things that kids are interested in. And he's just a goofy kind of wild guy. And my first reaction, nothing personal blip. Was this guy? Looks like the modern day peewee Herman. Moral of the story, I have learned that blippy is harmless and wonderfully entertaining for children and we found blippy on YouTube, but now we know that blippy is on Amazon and all sorts of other streaming channels. So is this the model that you're talking about where there are the creator communities on the youtubes of the world or whatever channels are sort of digitally native, starting to move towards a more traditional television model? That was actually who I was talking about. And blip is a perfect example because you're right. A lot of kids content is definitely a three clicks away from Hitler and personally from my kids, when I give him a YouTube, I really don't want to do that because it's the phone. He can click to different shows and who knows what he's watching in another three minutes where on the TV, you can kind of regulate it and has better quality. It's on the big screen. And that's definitely, I think it's better experience and I see a lot of kids.

I'm excited to have you as my guest excited to talk about what is a growing channel in not only advertising, but really in the way that we consume content. You're on the forefront of the video, CTV OTT, all sorts of different ways to talk about how we consume media and content. Let's start off with kind of a broad advertising question in general, not just with our Facebook or Google or display ads. We're seeing the sort of demise of cookie and tracking affect all media channels was the impact of going cookie list having the video space. This is something that everyone is a little bit concerned about and thinking there are ways, you know, workarounds. And as far as everyone knows, so by 2022, we're no longer going to be supporting third party cookies. So that's put us into the situation where we really have to think about how publishers are going to be moving forward. When it comes to advertising, it has a lot of huddles. I put it that way. So we really need to put I'd say more effort into the quality and targeting and how we can scale it and really focus on the basic aspects of buying and selling inventory. So really, we are at the point where we're really close to 2022 and this is something that we really have to think about. What are we going to do with forward? Not only in CTV space, but specifically in whole digital space. Yeah, I mean, it seems like the value of first party data must be skyrocketing because the distribution of third party data is essentially, I don't know if it's getting completely destroyed, but obviously it's going to be harder to find data sources without cookies. Talk to me about the use of the third party data how important.
