Targeting Demographics in Podcasting With Jay Green
"Targeting demographics in podcasting can get a bit tricky. Data can tell you who is in the digital household you're targeting but not necessarily in that household is listening. I wrote about this in my article. Can you target podcast listeners. By demographic which all lincoln the description. I spoke with jay green cadence. Thirteen a division of odyssey. I worked with j. A few times was working at barometric claratyne metaphor. He get the gist. We got a chance to speak about demographics and how podcasting is new avenues to use them. What you don with cadence thirteen has been really cool. Like you guys have been one of the first people that i've worked with to really focus on demographic targeting and interesting ways so demographic targeting is the mindset that we're looking for the individual right or looking for the household or taken the information instead of focusing on what show there at we're gonna instead focus on who is accessing it Which is a neat way to target when you guys use that. Is that how you focus every campaign or is it an additive thing for specific campaigns at that. That's a great question. You know kind of backing up a little bit the mediums. Come off it's evolved in so many different ways One of the big pieces. As i know you wrote about it today dynamic insertion and what it can bring to the table there. This is kind of the next evolution of that You have your direct responsibility. Performance players they want to be part of the episodic you have brands. Who want to be able to your brands. Who want to run across series and networks. This is that next iteration. So i don't wanna say it's the go-to because they really isn't one go to Y pigeonhole yourself that way but what this does allow for. It allows for extensions of campaigns and allows for larger budgets allows for tickets. Created a synergy if you will so if you have client x. who's buying episodically in they're buying and shows that are geared towards female eighteen to thirty four. You can pick those select shows and have your host reads and Have your personal endorsements any personal experiences and now what you can do also as you can target take that target. Say okay i also wanna create this This campaign that is demo targeted to females eighteen to thirty four. And i'm just going to run across the
The Music of World Showcase in EPCOT
"If i say the music of epcot what's the first song that comes to mind. Probably something from future world and as we covered extensively back on show six nine six ten future world has background scores and attraction and so show themes that not only. I think resonate with us but are enjoyed by us beyond just our time in the parks. They are on our playlists and in our ears when we drive run exercise. I'm obviously like reaching and assuming those last two or whether we're just relaxing at home but why which is my favorite word. And i think it's probably because so. Many of these songs were created by disney for disney they are original themes built around the theme using the time-tested recipe of what makes disney music so memorable but for the other half of the world. Showcase much of the music is not only traditional but helps to set the stage and represents the culture of the participating nation. And these aren't songs. I think that we would normally associate with a theme park experience. Either that is like if we're talking about walt disney world But some of my favorite songs. That dizzy songs are found in many of these background. Loops of not just future world. But some of these world showcase pavilions and they always seem to bring a smile to my face as they hear them. Whenever or wherever i am and i said on the intro to the epcot show that that the music is very much a melting pot of so many cultures ideas ideals technology and different flavors. And it's a place that you can hear music that is as diverse as the pavilions and cultures and speaking of diverse. I want to continue our musical journey from future world to world showcase once again with friends who helped kick off this musical odyssey so i'd like to welcome back to the show. Lisa denote glasner from the castle. Run and core memory candles dot com to be back. Jason connect from here with the magic and the after our show on the facebooks. Hello it's good to be back with you guys and the one and only zac brown from the one and only the zac brown show. Everybody excited to be here. So i am excited for this. And i'm curious to one because i want to see if hopefully we can beat or not break record long. Our future world discussion was. But i think and i'm curious because we don't talk about this ahead of time how this may differ. Because i think again so many of those future world songs and themes are ones that we can mention by name. Papillon came up again. I think exactly you know if it was a drinking game and papillon was your word. You're in some serious trouble but so much of world showcases different because one. We can't pronounce many of the names the songs they don't necessarily roll off the tongue and they're not one that we might necessarily know by name but we know in terms of how they make us feel and they are there are some pavilions that have themes or some that. Just have background music that we enjoy very quickly. When and they'll round in the same order. When you think of world showcase when you think of world showcase music what is the first song idea pavilion. Thought that comes into your mind for me. I remember when we sat down to do or when was sitting down to prep for the future world. Show i joked that. I've never felt so prepared and so unprepared at the same time for a topic because it was like it was a topic. That's just sort of ingrained in my soul but at the same time i didn't know quite how i was going to articulate it and This show said hold by juice because like the rest of disney right is supposed to sort of insulate you from the rest of the world and i think the unique thing about showcases that it has the opposite job. It's supposed to transport you into the rest of the world. And so while you know so much of the music throughout disneyworld otherwise as supposed to sort of encapsulate you and bring you into this place. You know. the imaginary kind of didn't do their job right right if they did. If that's the result of in world showcase because the point of showcases to make you feel like you're not in central florida. It's supposed to make you feel like you're traveling around the world. As you're walking around world showcase so i don't know if i have a quick good answer to like what song first comes to mind. it i mean i could say something. Easy like golden dream of course. Which is you know sure. We'll talk about that more But now i think it's it's like background stuff. Like le vian rose and like the stuff that green and like that. The the the music that i just associate. Because i'm here. So much with walking around world showcase but at the same time you know like you said in the intro. It's not necessarily music that you're supposed to associate with a theme park. Don't you have a green sleeve. The greens leave story to which will have to get to. Because i remembered crossing the bridge an international gateway with you and i said isn't the screen sleeves using it yet and then you told me a story from your childhood is i am. I am right. I mean who doesn't have a green sleeve story like there's a green sleeve story and i want to don't jump ahead of ourselves but that really from my childhood i whistle. Inslee leaves all the time and it makes my mother crazy. Maybe i was just hoping it was from your childhood. Okay i i mean to answer the question. What's the first song pavilion jumps to mind. It's gotta be mexico and it's got to be the three cobb heroes right like that's got to be no actually. It's not that i think. The the for me world showcase had an anthem and no it can't be eliminations but it had an anthem. It would be basically the soundtrack to impress his france. Of course which. I am super excited about francine far away i know he s- t and wonderful. We'll get there For me it's kind of an unfair answer. I think about the international gateway. It's kind of this. Great little collaboration of everything that you're going to experience it's kind of the coming attractions. You know like lisa said you've got le vian rose and you've got a little bit of music piping in from like the china pavilion and everything just kind of blends and it just sets the overall tone and of prepares you for the pallet. That is in front of you whether it be musical or food you kind of preps you and gets you in the mindset that is world showcase and for me you know if i was to close my eyes and just say world showcases a couple of songs that jumped right to the top but one of them and this is actually a great way for us to begin. I think is. There is a world showcase background loop and being disney enthusiasts that you are. I'm pretty sure. It exists on your iphone or ipod your spotify playlist because this is one of the ones that i think people do have an play when their home or even in their cars or when they're working or walking or just relaxing and while you might not necessarily know the names of the songs if you were to listen through it and serbia following along this. This item list of the music yelich like. Yes inca dance by cousteau. That's my favorite song. Although you wouldn't walk into sam goody's not that there's a sam goodies but go with me here. You wouldn't walk in goodies and say i need incan dance on forty five guys have that. But i love the world showcase loop that you can hear on both entrances to where you could. We'll talk about some of the changes that came about relatively recently but those are some of the songs that i hear that like the future world entrance mentally

"Let's talk about ubisoft recent financial results where they revealed they're going to be moving away more alliance on aaa releases and instead look more closely at free to play games and it's back catalogue to make money. I'm gonna read over some quotes here. plans for fiscal twenty. Twenty two. which will go from this april two april or through march twenty twenty two includes three trivia a game releases so i guess we can speculate a little bit on what we think those might be But in the future you have doesn't want aaa games to the focus of its business model quote. We said for a number of years. That are normal template is to come with either three or four aaa games. So we'll stick to that plan for fiscal twenty twenty two twenty twenty two but we see that. We are progressively continuously moving from a model. That used to be only focused on aaa releases to a model or you have a combination of strong releases from aaa and strong back catalogue dynamics but also complementing our program of new releases with three to play and other premium experiences you wanted to specify the company had a number of aaa titles in the pipeline otherwise like six ramos quarantine skull and bones. They actually mentioned skull and bones as republic. The prince of persia says the time remake and roller champions. No mention of yongan evil to on the call. There was not a single mention of their battle. Royale higher scape. Finally you besides financial indicate. The games like mario puts reds far. Cry five the crew to anno eighteen hundred older. Just dance games and assess discreet. Odyssey are still doing meaningful numbers. How rock band still makes a lot of money.

India Turns Off the Internet
"Imagine a huge news event. Maybe the protests in the street after george floyd staff your first instinct is to pull out your phone and look for more information but you can't. That's what was happening in delhi. I asked for not what it was like to try to find out more about the former protests after republic day depending on where in the were specifically in parts of the city where writing broke out you would not have been able to access internet on your cell phone which is how most people in the country access the intimate yard. So when you got people's internet on their cell phones use sort of leave them with not many other ways to find out what's happening. I was struck by a statement from the ministry of home affairs saying that turning off the internet was and i'm quoting here in the interest of maintaining public safety and averting public emergency. But what were they trying to prevent. The government's were always be one to prevent rumors from spreading. We want to prevent fake news. We want to turn off the internet to control the situation. That's the government's were and on the other hand. The people for whom the internet is docked off saying that this is done so that we can't get information we can't collaborate in like what's up groups. We can't access twitter. We got access youtube or we. We don't have any alleged ways to find out what's happening around us and it will be homs anybody who's trying to come together and protest. It's not just about turning off the internet in those specific places that you mentioned where there were riots or where there were a lot of farmers gathering but it was also blocking specific content. I'm thinking specifically about some twitter accounts that were blocked ones. That mentioned the farmers multiple journalists. What happened so a lot of us. Woke up on tuesday morning and yet i am and realize that a bunch of accounts and at that time. It wasn't possible to know how many there were. Some very prominent recounts one of which belonged to the caravan. Which is an investigative journalism magazine that frequently right stories sort of whole powerful people in corporations to account. I've heard it compared to the new yorker of india. People say yes. It's sort of the only magazine in india that does that kind of journalism so one of the accounts that you couldn't access from india anymore. On was the caravans account. There were other accounts of the really belong to people who were very vocally critical of the government really and the notice that you got on twitter when you tried breakfast and you'll these accounts was this account has been withheld in india in response to a legal demand and everybody would the caravans down the stone and all these guys were down for about six hours. If you're listening to this in the us it may seem almost incomprehensible that in a democracy the government could just turn off the internet but in india. There's a law on the books from the british colonial era that allows the government to do just that to tell the providers to shut things down. And that's not all there's another law more recent that lets the government block some internet content like those twitter accounts and this is a controversial law. That sort of gives the government power to ask these platforms to take off any content that they deem is a threat to national security. Our national integrity. It's really broad terms like that because it could be applied to any pain really and one of the most controversial things about this law. Is that a platform. Who is the noticed. using this law is not allowed to disclose the not so we try ask twitter. Hey like wanted to odyssey. And they said we can show you because we would be loss so not only. This is a lot of allows the government do take off things on the internet it also mandates the people who receive the order to like not what the actual odyssey's platforms like twitter are caught between the government and the huge number of users in india. Who are key to growing their business. Twitter i took the magazines a countdown than six hours later. Put it back up deciding not to comply with the government's order. This is a very large bucket. They have serious business interests. They have bought in a substantial amount of money to sort of bring all these millions and billions of indians online. And you know hopefully he their services but also they are increasingly faced with the government that is just becoming more and more authoritative than finding that they have to sort of do the line and do this. Balancing act between how they operate in the. Us how they operate. Cure with local laws. That may not live up to like freedom of speech and human rights standards in the us.
A Father's Fight
"Spastic paraplegia fifty or spg. Fifty is a neurodegenerative disorder that progresses slowly from infancy patients experienced developmental delays specificity and paralysis in the lower and upper limbs and microcephaly among other symptoms. It's an autosomal recessive disorder. Which means that. The child inherits the disease causing genetic mutation from both parents. I'm joined today by terry. Pure volek s whose son. Michael was diagnosed. This ultra rare condition. Terry and his wife georgia founded the organization cure. Pg fifty in order to find gene therapy treatment for michael and all other children affected by this disease. He will tell us his family's story and give us an update on how research is going for his son. Welcome terry thank you so much for being here. We really appreciate being able to share your journey with you. So can you tell us about your family's journey with this disease. So on december seventeen two thousand seventeen michael. Our youngest son was born. It was pretty much uneventful. We went to the hospital mill the night. My wife said her you know her. Water broke our third child so we were prepared. We got there. The midwife is there and michael came out in pretty much like an hour and a half. We were home within three hours so it was. It was very quick. It was completely uneventful and he was a perfect little kid he was you know he was quiet. He was the perfect child. Around six months of age we noticed that he wasn't raising his hands and he wasn't following the milestones are other children. Were following in. My wife said know. Something's up so he brought him to the doctor in the noticed that his head was starting to fall off. The charter wasn't growing as expected. And he he had something called low muscle tone to that kind of fell into the odyssey of finding out what was wrong with him. And i think it's important to note here especially for any parents that have gone through this themselves. How agonizing this step can be especially when it turns out that it's this sort of rare disease. I imagine there were all kinds of tests and all kinds of doctors. Who were just telling you that. They didn't know what it was. And how heartbreaking. That can be for parents obviously are. I thought you know what he has. Low muscle tone as you know. It looks like he's head is smaller but don't worry about it. He'll he'll catch up. And then you know that kind of lasted three months and then we were like okay. Will he still not progressing therapies and he is improving but you know his head still isn't growing. What's going on so then we went to sick. It's hospital in toronto. And we went to infectious disease. Because i was traveling at the time to latin america and he thought maybe he adds zeka so we went down the path of siyavizy ca testing. And all the other infectious diseases. What you didn't have any of them obviously and then we moved into neurology. Team did an ira. And they found that they they saw few. You know things that were not normal but nothing major. And that's when they started doing you know the panel testing which came back all negative and then finally let. We were very lucky that they did the genetic testing and then on april second of of twenty nine thousand nine. He was diagnosed with this. You know terrible disease. And how did you find doctors that were able to tell you more information about this disease. We were really lucky. That won't april second. We were told to go home. Love michael that there was nothing really the can do for him that he will most likely be completely paralyzed with limited brain function and As parents we were absolutely devastated by drove home that night. And i honestly i don't remember how even got home. Allie member his crying on the street in the car. But we found a family 'cause we're hearing the paper. I don't know what happened. I think i lost it but denied the emailed us what the disease was in the diagnosis and we found a family that had spg forty seven out of boston and call them up that night in a panic and the as she walked us through the disease and and who are the specialists and they took care of us for the next two weeks while we mourned this significance piece of our lives. It was almost like a while. It is like a piece of our soul was taken away from us. That's a really amazingly lucky to be able to find a family and have them be so willing to help you out especially in those early days will not just not the lucky that there are. She already going in the path of gene therapy. So not only do they tell us what the disease prognosis was. But they were telling us what they were doing for their disease and for their gene therapy program and spg. Forty-seven is part of a protein complex called ap four and under that ap four there's four genes their ap for eight before and one s one g one and be one in ours was the same essence. We all have the same disease so we were very fortunate. Karachi went on that path and and and kind of guided us for the next two weeks on what we should be doing and we took it on and did it ourselves from
Bowser's Fury Preview
"Mario three d world with the expansion. Our friend joe scribbles over in the uk was able to get some hands on with it ryan. I know you're a big fan of super. Mario three d world. What did you think of joe's preview. I didn't read it. Because i don't want to be spoiled because i'm very excited for this. No it's okay. We'll do it now. It's it's. I'm super excited for this. I'm not necessarily in media blackout. I've seen what i needed to see. I read a little bit about the length of this Sort of bonus campaign. I'm all in like. I don't need anymore to need anymore. Arm twisting this is basically a brand new three d. Mario mini game Or small smaller size game coming to switch very soon. And i can't wait i'll i will hundred percent the main campaign in this game again in multi-player I love game so much. And the boundaries. Fury stuff looks amazing. Didn't read the preview. So i don't want to be spoiled but now my friends could spoil me while i'm stuck here in this chair being forced to listen. I can tell you everything. That's an bits wide though. It's a jovan an awesome job if you listeners viewers if you haven't watched it watches His preview does a really nice job at breaking down the two parts of the game. You know he says it's basically two games in one you get. The classic slightly sped up right more more Side scrolling oriented games. Like mario odyssey three d. exploration game but like this kind of fast for player game and then this completely separate mode. He was only able to get limited time with you. Know a probably everybody's curious about houses fury but he said it's it's really interesting because it's it uses the three d world engine but then a kind of more world set up like odyssey so when you watch preview you can see. It sometimes doesn't quite look as good as odyssey but in general it still looks really impactful because it has all these cool weather effects and it's just really really need to see the styles of the two games mixed like that but the thing that i thought was really interesting is that he He confirmed that. The browser appearance is like the blood moon. Zelda in that it's like a world event that happens and when bowser is there he'll he'll attack you and his attacks can open areas or destroy blocks otherwise you wouldn't be able to get into so it's like it's a scary event but it's also welcome event and so the thing he wasn't able to do is to actually do the battle with presumably. That's what you build up to and that's how you end the level. It's really cool looking. There are so. I don't know how much you want to be. I think he said that you can get him to go away by picking up one of the collectibles called the cat shine and he said there were a lot of similarities and call backs to mario sunshine but no no flood or anything like that and there's an item you can pick up and then do gigantic tax battle with bowser area. Yes you collect. Shines basically like in sunshine which is a different from obviously three d world in the way it set up but yeah it is. It is very curious right like that. You can get a mini mario adventure in it like it almost makes it feel like maybe at one point and they were thinking about doing this. This cap thing as odyssey deal sea level or something like that. Yeah it's I can't wait to play. Unfortunately you know my number one player partner my daughter. We used to play this together. She now lives in japan but luckily the came has multiplayer. So that's right. I mean online online. It does have online from from what i saw. Sort of on social media It seems to work pretty well. I'm i'm i'm very into that concept. I think you're totally honest. Something it it does feel kinda curious that there's this brand new side mode because nintendo didn't need to do this you know like a lot of their Ports have from the you era have been a lot more straightforward. They've added some stuff here and there into like pick men and obviously we got an additional stuff in I guess what was it in. Mario kart today add battle mode eventually on. Yeah we got additions on the switch for sure. Yeah this this game is fantastic on its own and it doesn't feel short on content at all so i'm super happy. They decided to add even more. Like i said one hundred percent of the last one. I'll do it all over again. But i was not expecting anything new here to get. That is really cool. Bonus for fans. Like but i think you're right like the. I wonder when when and where the development of this mode was sort of adjacent to like. Was this an odyssey thing. Was this three d world. Dlc or additional stuff that they were planning until they saw you know the we you kind of tapered off in terms of sales but either way. I'm glad it's here now. It's neat yeah and you know just as a guiding
The Power of Decentralized Marketing
"Of the centralized marketing gone are the days of critical thinking and freedom of speech. Those who don't comply with the mainstream narrative are d. monetize d platform and often labeled mentally. Ill it's time to leave the centralized marketing land of Facebook twitter youtube and all the other platforms and join decentralized networks. That welcome people who are bold enough to question everything. I joined twitter and facebook game. Twenty seven. I mean those were fun times because nobody really what we were doing. Social media marketing was a new term and the vast majority of people and businesses including major league corporations had no clue what to do with these platforms. I remember the first. At s-. I ran on facebook. I mean back then. Ads were approved instantly and costs. Were ridiculously low. Like in the good old days of email marketing everybody on facebook was clicking on your ass to find out more about this new feature along with whatever you were offering early internet marketers. Were mostly running ads for free e books. You can download from a website you were sent to. It was simple and straightforward marketing approach. That worked seamlessly then greed kick in and what used to be a peaceful place together with loved ones and like minded people turned into an ugly spot. That reminds us of certain behaviors and character's humanity rather knock made acquaintance with so here. We are today as more and more people awaken to the luge of this three d game which is designed so perfectly that a tricks even our most advanced spiritual teachers into believing it's trip for those of us who decided to go all in and up our level of consciousness in order to play this game to our utmost capabilities. We're now faced with incredible challenges. Those who think they can control this amazingly designed game by enslaving the entire planet when most likely encounter some cataclysmic surprises that being said. Let's leave the spiritual playfield for moments and discuss a few tangible marketing solutions to assist your transition from centralized to decentralized marketing networks. And i like to talk to you about the new marketing disruptor which is blockchain so library odyssey minds float p- research. None of these brands and companies are a household name remember two decades ago the same for facebook twitter and youtube the blockchain technology that underpins bitcoin therion coin and all the other cryptocurrencies is already changing the way we do marketing and promote our businesses the biggest difference between the centralized social networks and the decentralized blockchain based attorney tiv- that i just mentioned is that these companies reword users for using their product instead of gathering questionable personal data and selling them to third party corporations and even government entities. Now if you wanna find out more about library minds and flow for example. I highly suggest you listen to my other podcasts. And also check out the my blocks on strengthened business dot com especially the one aware i Wrote and i talked about minds adds that episode is called. Why bother with blockchain social ads. And you might want to hop over to strengthen business dot com and going to that block. Because i shared some a screenshots with you as to how i set up these ads on mines Although there are in the early stages of the platforms per se aren't sophisticated as aloud words any especially facebook but still a lot that he can do. Okay so here are some of the podcast episodes. That are highly suggest. You check out First one is where to go win. Centralized social media kicks off their platform. The next one as i already mentioned why bother with blockchain social ads and another one would be humans or machines. Whom do you create your content for so if you've been listening to strengthen business podcast simply search for these episodes the one with the centralized social media where to go with the kick you off their platforms was the episode that are recorded before this now a lot of my clients and also people that i talk to come to me and say okay. What now especially professionals medical professionals who have different opinion than big pharma. They'll like okay. How i wasted my entire life Or mine tire to last week. All the laws of decade posting on youtube and facebook and now that they banned me were the platform. me what do i do i mean. Have i literally wasted my time. And here's something that. I want to highlight an. I want to suggest That you do and first of all Something very critical in terms of thinking and mindset so first of all your time invested into f. a. m. g. is not wasted so in the past two to three decades f. a. m. g. with Fans for facebook. Amazon apple microsoft and google had a blast they seemingly appear out of nowhere. I mean that's what the majority's purposely deceived to believe and slowly but surely they gained control over our behaviors are thoughts are interest and social interactions. Now to this day. I recall the article written by robert booth with the title. Facebook reviews new speed experiment to control emotions. It was published in the guardian. On june thirtieth. Two thousand fourteen. I repeat facebook. Reviews newsfeed experiment to control emotions. If you're interested in that go to the guardian. It's on june thirtieth twenty fourteen. Very good article. You might wanna read it now. The offensive strengthened business. That was more than six years ago cake. Twenty fourteen now. What do you think happened in the meantime so knowing all these highly unpleasant and disturbing facts about facebook and all the other companies. Why do you think. I still suggest that you haven't wasted your time on social media. Look i've been running ads on the face of ecosystem since two thousand eleven. I educated hundreds of students in my life courses and workshops on how to run profitable ads on facebook instagram and messenger. I created their academy. Where i taught students how to opt game so that they can get the most for their buck went advertising on the social platforms. Now don't you think that. I learn quite a few things about targeting copywriting design call to action network interoperability and so forth that i can immediately apply to block chain advertising. You bet i can. Actually it makes things super easy as these platforms are still in the early stages. While facebook's advertising product is a behemoth in terms of complexity structure and data points compared to these platforms so facebook compared to minds as i mean. It's it's still a joke. Or if you take a p- researches which is a decentralized search engine keywords taking compared to google ad words or google ads. I mean early stages. There's so much that you can take away from everything that you learned on these platforms and apply to the blockchain. Now for you specifically this means the following if you have run ads on any of these platform. I don't care whether that's facebook. I don't care whether that's lengthen pinterest. Snap tiktok whatever you this if you have done. Follow management on twitter or instagram. If you have worked on improving your copywriting skills if you have learnt to shoot and edit videos an audience say for example for youtube if you have engaged in any kind of social media marketing and david these you most definitely can take all that knowledge and apply it one to one to the decentralized marketing networks based on blockchain technology. Remember their technology changes that is there is no one entity controlling whatever it is that you're saying you're putting up now. The only thing. I'd encourage you to do is to stay humble. Be open to learning new things. And more importantly to be willing to engage in marketing activities that are created for humans. Not some stupid machines. And they're all greats like in the early days everybody's setup their pages and all these. Seo thing for google please write for humans create content for humans
Lessons I Learned by Growing Fast in 2020
"I want to start this episode by saying this is not about me beating on my chest and saying look at me. Look at our company. We grew this much. I'm actually going to be quite vulnerable and share a lot of some mishaps that happened in the year because of this growth and just for context we start. Women are nj. Yesterday we will be in business for seven years come april so it almost took nearly six years to hit this crazy rapid growth. So we're definitely not an overnight success. We've been trying to prepare for this for some time. And i want to share with you. How it all worked out in twenty twenty now up to this point before twenty twenty. We had steady growth. So it's very predictable. About how many resources we need in terms of customer support or developers or if we need to spend more money on advertising all that was kind of predictable but the will be a time in your business. Will you'll have drastic growth. Because of an event for us it was covert but it could be something different for your business. Forbes might mention you in an article and that will give you incredible traffic a random influence or celebrity might use your product or buy your product and mentioned it on social. This is actually more common than you think. A big brand or big business with the following might use your product and mentioned on their blog. This has happened to us before as well. So you might have these spikes that lead to tremendous growth for a period of time so these events. The spikes are unpredictable. You know in this is going to happen. So how can you prepare. Well you can prepare to some extent so one lesson. I learned something that really prepared us. Was that inner business. We create an called standard operating procedures as oh peace and this basically is documenting every single task that we do in our business. We're really really anal about this. I know this sounds really really strict but to the point where we have a procedure for answering emails on support for publishing podcasts episodes. We have a procedure. Every single thing in our business and the reason why we do this is though that if we ever hire somebody training that person to do a task is not going to be super super hard actually self study. They can do it on their own. It also allows other people on the team to pick up a task if they need to help out by just following the sap. So i highly recommend that you start creating standard operating procedures for every little task in your business and you can start with department like support. There are tons of questions that get repeated day in and day out how to receive my password. Can i get a refund. fund policy. do accept american express. All these questions get asked over and over for many businesses and you can create standard replies. Now they don't have to apply word for word. Whoever uses sap but the point is is that they have a source of truth somewhere where they can go now. What does that have to do with growth. If you have an explosion of growth and all of a sudden you have all these support tickets in your queue. And you're like whoa. I don't have enough agents. In fact on the one was answering all support tickets. We'll you can do is one odyssey. You can put a job posts are hiring but you still need to train them. You still need some onboard and it's going to take a couple of weeks but in the meantime you can ask the rest of your team members to jump in or you can get a freelancer really quickly to answer. At least the s o p questions that are in your cue immediately that alleviates a lot of the stress and the problem of long time through support so. Soap's huge huge thing to help us. One thing that we were not prepared for was how quickly we had to hire in two thousand twenty. We hired eleven new full time. Hires some of these hires were repeat. Hires meaning that we hired for this position before the customer support agents so that was pretty easy to do because we had a job post to go. We knew exactly where posted we had a whole system for application and interviewing but some hires were brand new brand new positions. That was a brand new job post. So one of these didn't do that. We should have done was right out the job descriptions for the next positions you wanna hire so. We had a list of positions that okay. These the next hires who wanna make these new positions. We wanna fill. We had that in place but we didn't take it step further and have those job. Descriptions really fleshed out understand exactly who we're looking for and what we want them to do because what happened is that oh man. We need this person. This person this person to meet this growth and to really capitalize on this opportunity of all. This traffic is coming our way so we had to spend a lot of time on saying okay. We need to really flush a who you're looking for so we can find the right candidates who can make the right hire quickly so if i had into it again i would definitely a have those job descriptions already even though you're not hiring now it's good to have them in a bank in your google drive so when it's time to hire you have to hire you can easily post that job description. All set to go.
Where to Go When Centralized Social Media Kicks You Off Their Platform
"It's hearty magin. You not being exposed to rack plea or indirectly to the shenanigans that are currently going on across all the major centralize social media networks. There isn't an individual or industry considered immune any longer. If you raise your voice and share an opinion that doesn't coincide with the mainstream narrative you're doomed to being blocked banned the monetize or deep platform amongst the first to come under the gunfire of the technocrats were independent journalist followed by doctors and medical professionals who share alternative view. Today even a farmer can be banned simply because he raises a supply chain issue. That might lead to serious problems in this tributing food. As this topic is often considered quote unquote sensitive. It can lead to censorship. Look we've certainly come a long way. What started out. As a supposedly genuine social experiment has absolutely nothing to do with social and human generosity anymore before i share a few alternative decentralized blockchain social platforms that you can move to in case you get the monetize and be platform from big tech. I highly suggest you use these networks even if you haven't been banned from youtube facebook twitter and all those other platforms. Some of these platforms have already consolidated their presence by onboarding major players from across industries and ecosystems. You might be surprised that video views on one of these blockchain based networks. I'll just mention a few seconds have become incredibly close to numbers used to seeing on youtube. Now okay so here. We go blockchain based decentralized alternatives to centralized social media as start with the first one. it's A proper youtube will turn it if and it's called a library and also odyssey so there two platforms but the main tack is on library for those of you who are tech developers or more tech savvy so it spelled. Lb so library can find library dot tv and the other one is odyssey spelled o. d. y. s. e. so if you're missing your favorite journalist or content creator that was banned from youtube due to his or her non-mainstream spin on current events. That i'm pretty sure you find this person on library and the respectively the cool thing about this blockchain based decentralized network is the fact that you can upload your videos to library i and use this source to redistribute to other channels including e too so for those of you who have video content and haven't been the platform to andy monetize from youtube. You can also choose another route. You can go to a library. So blockchain a loaded up on library and from there go library. I used to source code to basically redistribute to. Youtube is absolutely possible. Okay so that's the first network a library and odyssey the second one is a mine's mine's is a blockchain based decentralized social media platform that hasn't gained proper traction yet although they have a pretty neat product similar to facebook very similar to the facebook ecosystem. Actually you can create your own channel access your news feed and use discovery to find trending topics or content based on specific hashtags. Just like you would on instagram. For the more you can join groups that cover topics of interest to you or build your own group of like minded individuals more importantly you can use your minds token which is the native cryptocurrency to run ads across the platform now. The ads are super easy to set up. And they actually remind me of facebook's early apparat are backing twenty eleven. I've talked about mind several times on this podcast also written block posts about it and i highly suggest especially those of you who love to run facebook ads to check out the advertising. A product that a mindset delivers on their blockchain network. And i've written a blog post about also did the recording. It's cold why bother with blockchain social ads. Now if you're on your desktop or your pad you might want to check that out. Because i've also shared some screengrabs as to how i've set up the add on minds also with kind of settings i use so that might be of interest to you if you are interested in running ads on the block chain. It's really really easy okay. Number three is

Talking about my girl taylor. Swift sold her music catalog to what's his name scooter braun. Oh yeah and then complains. After bob dylan sold his music library for three hundred million dollars. That's right And by the way He sold is popularly. Seventy eight which is another one of those amazing miracles. The bob dylan still around still kicking. Well did you hear what he said about this jerry region. But here's what's going to happen you me. We'll be watching You know football game. We're watching wednesday night football thursday night football tuesday night. Football game mini mini games That around these days and there's gonna be a commercial for flow or he'll be commercial for you name it Gimme gimme some tv for apple apple. Lot of apple commercials. That's a good one apple amazon target. And it'll be Some of my friend is blowing in the wind blowing in the wind or something blue. What's blue some blue jet blue. And they'll be tangled up in blue. You'll go what bob dylan. His stuff is going to be of vera readily available companies to put in tv commercials. Because bob dylan sold out. It's bob dylan's if you don't like it if you think you know that he's Not that kind of guy that he wouldn't ever seventy-nine by the way he sold out. He took the money. God bless him his family's gonna why he needs the money but his family is going to be fabulously wealthy for generations but companies like target nap bullen and whatever flow what is flow sell insurance. Press gress yes i defense. They're going to be able to play. Dylan's pay whatever the going rate is and they could play it and you'll hear it all over the place just like you here. You know the rolling stones in some cases or taylor swift and other artists who was amazing. When i read the story it was about some of the other artists of fleetwood. Mac sold theirs for like. I get the number here here. It is eighty million dollars they sold. It wasn't even the whole catalog eighty million dollars. Fleetwood mac and dillon skate. Like columbine could probably name more wallflower songs and he can bog way. Bob dole i. It's right over my head. I have no idea i look. I'm surprised he got three hundred million. Based on the fact that that ship has sailed a long time ago dylan receives a lump sum between two hundred and four hundred I'm not sure what the what. The stevie nicks sold their publishing catalog for eighty million dollars. The dylan portfolio six hundred songs while other bands who have sold their catalogs sold. You know taking the money. Blondie barry manilow and the estates of john lennon and kurt cobaine. I believe john lennon the beatles. Paul mccartney bought them for like a ridiculous amount of money Like eight hundred million. Paul mccartney owns well. Didn't jackson by michael jackson and then mccray jackson and a falling out story there. But there's only one to look up jerry. Three hundred million eighty million two hundred to four hundred million. What did what did brian. Wilson's father sell the beach boys catalogue for another against the wishes without the kids. Even knowing and i think he sold it for like seventy dollars and a coke or something new never spoke to his father again obviously but if the beach boys is the one you would want because of the catchy jingles. Yeah that's true point and that the father sold it for nothing. He had no idea what he had. And what the value of wasn't a guy goes. Hey i'm gonna dig deep here. I'll give you five hundred dollars. Whereas i sold and brian wilson was never the same after it happened. It's a good point. But i think dylan's got a lot of those you know catch even though they you know might be whatever. The revolutionary songs at times they are a change in blowing in the wind and songs like that which will which will fit nicely in commercials. And we'll be sick of them all with and i'm sure he had control over it and limited the exposure but i guarantee you. He sold the rights to some two songs to some commercials. I assume right Yeah i guess. So i mean i don't blame me if you're gonna die soon and you wanna take care of you. Offspring kids grandkids. You say. What the hell. What do i care if not be capitalizing on all the different changes that are going on in the music industry. I bet it's like a five person team that he has controlling the catalog right. Like it's a he. He owns time. Bob no one said a need the money for anything the the couple couple of years ago. Long before covid were dylan on went on tour and performed at three hundred nights in a year three hundred nights in one year deal and he was like seventy five and i don't know anyone that went to see him. He wasn't playing the big rooms anymore but he's just addicted to performing and singing his songs and i must have just an insane amount of money already. I mean just. But it's like what bob cousy sold all his Collectibles always memorabilia. He said what do i need it for. This is going to pay for my grandkids education. And can you blame him for that. I wouldn't. I'm a big lira. Guy when it comes to rock and roll. If you consider dylan rock and roll and dylan for what i again. He's not my bag particularly. I don't have any bob dylan on my phone. But his his lyrics. If back on my i always think that you know if you get ten best lyrics of all time. You don't need a whether they know which way the wind blows is one of the great lines right and i'm with you. I'm a lear. Emma word man to and i love you know singing along to whatever tangled up in blue and he. He won the nobel prize for whatever writing. Poetry didn't show up for the award. You know. I believe. I believe greta thune. Berg was second so she'd go toward for him but no he won the nobel prize.

Another Mysterious Monolith Suddenly Appears — This Time In Romania
"Just thought it was safe. Remember talking about that Noblest about monolith That was in You know the hinterlands utah well and it suddenly disappeared. Well another one has suddenly appeared. This time in romania just in case you're keeping track of the ever revolving monolith as it seems to be making. Its way around the world. Is that the same one. Eight fifty now thirteen ten. Kfi thirteen ten kfi. Gay dot com northern colorado's voice mornings with gail via the collision specialist studios. Yep less than two weeks after authority stumbled literally across that mysterious metal object standing freely in the utah desert kind of looked like a giant and just days after disappeared while a similar monolith has been reported nearly halfway around the world. Oh those aliens pissy. Aren't they where in. The world is the monolith residents in the romanian city and for you of romanian descent. I apologize if i mangle. The city's name but residents in the romanian city of piatra nipped said they have found another odd item. That could have been ripped from the set of two thousand one. A space odyssey local newspaper reported by npr reports that the monolith like the one discovered in. I believe it was southeastern. Utah is about ten to twelve feet. Tall apparently composed entirely of a dimly reflective metal. It was reportedly found that standing on a plateau near archaeological site overlooking the city journal. Fm local radio station there recorded video the purported revealing an eye aching sheen and looped markings among its are along at surface. Now apparently not the same one so here enter. Andrei cal cal. Bolivia mayor of piatra neom. Well he appears to be taking the news in stride saying there's no reason to panic for those who think there is still life in the universe this according to a translation of a facebook post that he posted after the discovery surfaced on friday according to this translation by the independent he went on to say my guess is is that some alien cheeky and terrible. Teenagers left home with their parents. Ufo and started planting metal monoliths around the world. i and utah and then at piatra nipped. I am honored that they chose our city now. The monolith in utah disappeared less than a ten days. After officers from the state's department of public safety for spotted authorities profess their utter confusion at its presence. In utah's country. They were no less confused by its sudden disappearance overnight on friday poof just like that and adventure. Photographer said that. He spotted for men dismantling of so. It wasn't alien. Maybe they were masquerading as human spot photographer. Saying he's spotted for men dismantling the structure this according to the new york times and all that was left of the structure on saturday morning. And you can fire up google earth and see. This was a triangular metal piece that used to be on top and a whole where the base of the tower stood this according to the salt lake. Tribune hey it gives us something other to talk about then the craziness going on. Well i suppose it would fall into that category but all of the bad craziness going on throughout twenty twenty now. The bureau of land management. Utah denied moving the structure. Well and as for that. Those so mysterious monolith in romania kabylia's said he had no answers himself but that he wouldn't be all that upset. If the found mystery happened to attract tourists to city adding beyond the conspiracy theories. That can be tempting. I'd like to see this randomness as further proof that our city is special for the earthlings. And maybe not only for them as the monolith mystery deepens
The Long Legacy Of The Arecibo Telescope
"So let's step back for a minute edit and get a better sense of how the telescope has been used over the years. Tell me about what it does. What kind of projects it's worked on. So one of the really neat things about the The observatory that's very versatile. Scientific instrument most telescopes radio. Telescopes don't have the ability to send out light. They only capture late at the observatory. We can send and capture late when an asteroid coming by. We're pretty much a flashlight that we turn on we send out to. It comes back right. We can tell you how far these objects are down to a meters unbelievable add narrate and we care about where these asteroids are going to be because what if one day this thing comes around and gets too close to earth if we can let people know this is going to happen next year we can actually prepare for it like dinosaurs. They didn't have a space program so they can get to prepare for anything. That's true we do have that on the dinosaurs. We don't have much. But we have out of cbo and we have the direct understanding of asteroids because i also think just from an outsider's perspective like this telescope does really play a role in our cultural imagination. It contributes to our sense of off. You know about the universe. Like i think i remember in the seventies it was used to deliberately beam a message into space. You know like hey. We're here like i mean it really has like not only these scientific contributions but these cultural contributions it's like an it's an inspirational place. You know oh yeah. I love marvel. I'm love marvel comics. And things like that and i was watching. Although i'm a little old doesn't matter. I was watching a cartoon about the avengers and the avengers were flying off to the odyssey observatory to save it. Who was that still in the cartoon. Oh my gosh so yes it really is you know. It's not like one of those fields of science or scientific tools that really stays in academia right. It provides a broader context for understanding. The universe for non-academic says well which i think is is really special and important. It's like bench because of its versatility. It gets to be part of not only applied science but just part of typical day to day life. You may not see it. But it's there in cultural context. It's there you know saving your life making sure this asteroid is not coming towards you. It's really cool so it sounds like at this. Recent damage has big implications in terms of slowing down a lot of research. What kind of research are we going to be missing out on right now with it down well for personal perspective. I actually had some observing runs. We're gonna come up in late. September through october where we were going to be studying mars with radar this year mars was going to be the closest it was going to be and also observable from the osce observatory until the year twenty sixty seven so it. This year was literally a once in a lifetime. Opportunity to observe mars with other. See all twenty twenty twenty twenty worst year ever. Yeah okay so the damage that happened. This year isn't the first hurdle for the observatory right hurricane. Maria damaged the observatory twenty. Seventeen you you were working there right like. Tell me about that experience. Su twenty seven one hurricane. Maria came by not only was. I was still working at. The observatory actually stayed at the observatory. That's where i went for shelter so i got to see the winds combined and the damage For me one of the things that like hit me the most or make me realize the damage the most after the hurricane when we went outside. And when you look across the telescope and it's in the middle of a beautiful rain-forest greenery everywhere and that day after the hurricane when we went outside there's there is no green left it just nothing just brown. Everything was brown. The trees were dead. You see all the way down to the soil. It was impactful in the sense of. Wow this is the damage of the hurricane. Awesome packed full as a puerto rican. Who's used to seeing their island. Be beautiful and green selling costs high. Like that's gone all gone in day. That's tough that you know it starts being Quite a bit less about the science at that point. Oh very quickly. I mean after the hurricane when there was no utilities at all on the island we still had a couple of generators so people from of see what would drive up. We pump water for them and they leave with a bunch of water the to drink water. Well so okay. Let's let's let's talk a little bit about the funding struggles right because there have been ongoing funding struggles for the telescope. Break that down a little bit for me yes. The telescope which is owned by the national science foundation has had some funding struggles in that the budget that is used to operate. It has been going down. And it's gone down from anywhere from about fourteen mil per year with the expected current contract. They could go all the way down to two million gotcha into and so what will that mean for for the telescope and the people that work on it. So as there is diminishing funds going there They'll be less available time for people to go explore go observe pulsars and find the first evidence for gravitational waves which won the telescope a nobel prize in physics and nineteen seventy-three. It's
Mysterious monolith discovered in Utah desert
"A mysterious object resembling the free standing plank sculptures of the late minimalist artist. Joan mccracken or the alien monoliths in stanley kubrick's sci-fi classic.

Mysterious monolith discovered in Utah desert
"Monolithic structure that was discovered in utah in a cave. But like it's not natural looking. It's like a black kind of like ten foot obelisk or something like that. I don't know if that's big enough to be novelist. But monolith a monolith right so sorry. Yeah i don't know. What did you think it's aliens. You think it's aliens. I mean that's the question right. Who put it there. Yeah because there's no no one's claimed it it dropped. They said like there's no signs of it was dropped. It just appeared You know. I'm going go aliens on this one. It sounds gnarly. I mean the article Heavily references two thousand one space odyssey. Which is where i get the word monolith from because that's like what's all about and so they're like. Oh maybe it's a fans. I think they filmed that in the utah desert. And they're kind of saying like oh. Some artists did an installation like it looks artistic more than like anything else They thought like oh nassar put it. They're like bounce satellite signals author. But it's kind of like lowered into some rocks and stuff which would be interfere so it's not quite ideal for that. So i think the leading theory in the article was like like an artistic installation or something. Yeah
"odyssey" Discussed on The Official Adventures in Odyssey Podcast
"It's old. Ancient Technology today's standards and It also got very expensive. So I was looking for a replacement for the ISDN lines. So I switched over to Ip L. and have become. Such a fan of that. I started telling all my voice over friends about it and We've built quite a quite a nice sized community around Ip detail and terms of the things that could do townsend if I'm not mistaken. Wasn't that we use when we're on the cruise. Yeah. That's right. Exactly. So it allows me I can work over Wi fi from pretty much anywhere. I voiced the promos for live with Kelly and Ryan every day from home, and so I was able to do my work daily from the cruise ship which was. Not Nuts I had done remotely from from my daughter's house up in the bay area my son's house in Denver, but I'd never tried it from a cruise ship before and it worked brilliantly. That's fantastic. So when the world kind of changed a bit in the spring of Twenty Twenty and we had to start recording episodes remotely. I WanNa know from all of you what was your reaction of learning that? Well, we would be recording these episodes in your homes that are coming to the studio. was there any executive relief excitement? Questions what was the feeling? I was. Well, I was excited to but I You know I've been operating out of my studio for so long that I kind of missed the sessions because I get to see my friends and when I'm recording at home, which is all the time you never see anybody hear voices from other people and an even with this system You know we have a chance to talk to each other informally but you never there's nothing like A. Personal meeting and I miss that the whole businesses changed that way. No kidding I knew about IP detail to I. Don't. I maybe I didn't tell you about it talents and maybe somebody else did but I've been excited about it for a long time too. So I just think it was great that we can keep the momentum not that I don't miss everybody but it was great to be able to still work. Yeah well I yeah I was excited about about it for simply from the fact that I had been using it for a number of years already and had told you guys about it and suggested that if you're ever in a pinch and you need to record somebody remotely like this, it really works well and so the opportunity when it went into a arose at the beginning of the year with the whole pandemic. Thrilled, I mean really excited to be able to try getting all four actors online at the same time and being able to hear each other and interact with each other was huge. Yeah. So Andre, you're right I. mean because I work from home also and it's great because it's super super-efficient real convenient..

"Didn't work out that way I mean what happened and what did we do instead? Well what did happen Bob I mean yeah. Anybody noticed. Global Pandemic and cove. It has interrupted our plans. Right. But we know that the Lord knew this was happening way before we did and we are riding that wave. Yes. Yes we're disappointed. Yes we are so say that our girl convention was postponed and we're prayerful that this year in July nicknamed twenty twenty one that we will be able to have it. I'll be it a year late. No. Celebrate that quarter of a century milestone and what was going to happen. There was the whole exciting. We were going to have a preview or a rollout I guess you'd say. The Adventures in Odyssey Program called badges of honor that episode and we were all so excited about it and I think we were going to have perhaps some characters coming and just really exciting information about the adventures in Odyssey Club. And we had to what? Changed, whatever you WANNA call it and I think you guys did a great job because what we did instead was even virtual rollout virtual red carpet. So to speak of the episode and the girls in, American heritage girls were able to tune in one evening for the premiere. It enjoy hearing their own story in the adventures in Odyssey, cast and crew. Well, that's cool. So how familiar were you with adventures in? Odyssey before we approached you about doing episode did your girls grow up on the show? Though you Betcha my girls but my son is well, they have three daughters and in the sun and so are four kids I hope this doesn't offend anyone but this was part of our chores. Kids who are doing this cleaning their rooms in the you know the Saturday chores because that's when it was on at our local radio station they would listen to adventures in Odyssey and we were probably some of your very first listeners we've been listening since mid eighties. Now, how cool is it that my grandkids are listening to a Oh so again it's One of those awesome God things where he's so good to us, and here we are big fans and then you even wrote for sewed about our heartthrob, which is American heritage girls. So me yes, we are very familiar matter of fact, our favorite episodes was always if it involves with Sam, because the kids loved ice cream and all they cared about was that. And then when we were on the show of it was very cool because we visited focus on the family and we got to see the wonderful would have been just an. What do we call it experience I. Guess You'd say. Over in the welcome center. Exactly. Yes and that was so cool for my youngest daughter who started American heritage girls four she said here's. Here's the ice cream shop Ms. where's Mr Whittaker? She remembered everything it was awesome. Fun is one of the great sadness is I feel this summer is that we don't have guests coming and going the with that. They normally do because it does always such a pleasure kinda wander over there on my lunch hour usually go on a Friday afternoon and just watch the families enjoying wandering around wit's end. It's great. So was there a particular? Episode Patty that that you remember of finally that you heard over and over again it's funny back in the days cassettes a lot of us parents can remember our kids having a favorite episode that they love so much. They'd rewind the tape right away rather than listen to the other side I was there in episode like that that that stood out there. There was and it's so funny you mentioned Bob, the cassette tape that's exactly what it was. You know you'd pop that in and that would be on your drive because at the time we lived in very ten hours away from our hometown. So we would listen to that to the the one that they really loved was this. I think it was about a small town. It was sort of like a competition is the best small town. You remember that one that one they love that one and I'm not really quite sure why they loved it so much. But I'm sure ice cream was involved to it. Would set at some point. So they talked about that a lot. Album fifty, the small town. Yeah. For us it was Sunday morning scramble I remember those. Always seem to be playing at bedtime. Just, give me a little hot way over and over again I just want to be in Hawaii. Elderly Good Yeah. So describe the reaction of your people in your organization when they found out that Odyssey would be spotlighting age G. Oh. My goodness. So much excitement. You know prior to our episode, you had done one for trail life. Trail life is our brother organization and so many of our families are involved in both trail life an American heritage girls. So what would be the common request after they sell the trail I tap a said well American heritage girls going to have an episode. So they were so excited to met little sister was able to be featured as well and what a blessing, but you know. So many of our people have been fans of adventures in Odyssey and even as girls I mean a lot of our leaders listened to it growing up. So it truly is a legacy and they were excited to be part of that legacy so. To provide ideas for the episode or how did that Interaction Work Between Adventures? Ahe. Yes, we did a matter of fact, my girl development, our program impact director worked very closely with the team at adventures in. Sharing our handbook with which hit a lot of our badges which led to, of course the. Right and then also talking a little bit about what our programs like what are girls are like, and then your team even visited a troop on one of their very high cool high adventure horseback riding zip-lining events and really got to what Adhd was all about and I think they encapsulated our essence so well in the in the episode is it was awesome when you heard the final product was the one part of the story that really resonated with your experience with the with the actual HD troops. Absolutely you know the competition that can occur sometimes between girls right and there was a competition between how many badges wanting could earn and sort of looking jealously at the are they called the Marc's I believe their names were and and sort of wishing I had that many badges that happens sometimes in awards day but all in all what we need to. Encourage our girls is that you know what you're accomplishments do not define you and that was your theme and I loved it I. Also Love that you talk about the girls being daughters of the king and that their identity is not an what their performances but we're their hearts are in that same exact message that we share with girls in American heritage girls. Of course Kathy Cannon wrote that episode and I thought she did a really great job with it. Yeah and you mentioned the badges in you know as a a former. Cub Scout, myself badges are pretty important and in the episode Badges Ivana. And Zoe set out to earn all of them in a week. Okay. So that's that's probably not realistic. So have you the badges actually work for HD. Well, there is no way. Olivia. So he could ever do that because it's a three, hundred, twenty edge for. American heritage girls. They would have to be super hero HD upbeat but really the badges are not about a community because it was so important when we were starting this new program that the girls not only remember what they did to earn that they edge, but actually could teach another how to do that skill. So it's not just about getting all this done and you know I gotta get the Bitch. Now let's just go out in a boat and no are you learning enough to be able to teach someone else how to do that, and that's why it takes time and you know what? Honestly what we encourage our girls to do in their troops to earn about three to five badges year. You're so much more in American heritage girls than badges. The highest honor is the Stars and Stripes Award. So what does girl need to do to earn that badge? Well, that is for our Patriot level girls which are the high school level. Ninth through twelfth grade and it's really a difficult a difficult award, a matter of fact, in.

And within those few minutes we were down in the basement adventures in Odyssey Studio, and he handed me a script, apparently I was set to play coach Kramden. Thomas We've played basketball against each other and I know your kids are athletes. So were you inspired by any of your coaches? And maybe your kids coaches when you got into this role. Well, you know it's it's. It's radio drama, so you need to emotes, you need to project personality and I was told that the coach Kramden needed to be a pretty energetic coach. 'cause I I don't know exactly how old Camilla is on the show, but her and her friends and the soccer team I had to get them motivated I knew what my role was. The funny thing is Thomas. When you get invited to do it like you did actually, my first experience was very similar to that. You don't get a lot of context, do you? I mean you kind of say okay? Here's essentially how you need to read these couple of lines. Did you think. About this character I'd episode. Well.

Sammy and her daughter Sienna guys. Thanks for being with US Iraqi. Avoid when Giordano. I love the sound of that. Welcome yeah so you've got to let us know. How did you get involved with listening to adventures in Odyssey? So it's a few years ago. We stopped in her friend's house. They had some CDs from some of the old adventures. Not as the episodes they gave them to us so we started listening to them and then we finally found the adventure club and we joined will thank you for being part of the club. Now we understand that your missionaries tell us about how you found your way to Italy and what you do there. Anthony and I were studying in seminary and we were called to church planting and we were just asking God where he wanted us to go. And we went on a backpacking trip of Europe and we are standing in line to get into the Coliseum and in front of us was a group with campus crusade. They were sharing with us about a ministry. They were planting two hundred eighty thousand university students. We started looking into it and got opened the doors within a year and a half. And so we've been involved here now for fifteen years. It's been an amazing adventure of church planting with university students. And then also we have a House Church Network and outdoor wilderness program. So the wow okay you worry about the Wilderness Program. Because you know we're from Colorado so we we love those wilderness experiences. Talk talk more about that. Basically in the beginning of my journey of fate God used that to draw me to himself used a novel. Gentlemen taking me out outdoor adventures. So since we've been here we've always used that as a tool. We're surrounded by the Alps. It is ridiculously beautiful place. It's one of those kind of things that talion don't necessarily expect you would take from the mountains. Then connect that with with spiritual things and even even worship in that environment. So we've been doing that now. By God's grace for about ten years in dozens of people who were curious about spiritual things become followers and then disciples and then in leaders. Well I Nikki was born and raised in Colorado so we have a big connection to Colorado. And that's not the only Colorado connection you guys have because you've visited us here at focus on the family so tell us about that so when we got there we all wanted to go into the ice cream shop your fully deliciousness. We went on the slide. We did that thing around twenty times. That's what makes me dizzy. The Abedin because all right yeah. I'm not sure I want to go down the slide twenty times after having the wooden Sunday no might be a good thing. I don't know yield the best after I did that. But it was still awesome. We've been all over the world with club members who are the only members in their country. And that's the case with you in Italy just surprised we thought there might be more in. Liba. We are grateful for you and I was wondering what part of the country you're living in that we're in Turin. Which if you think of Milan where up north of Milan kind of where I guess. Where THE BOOT? Kinda come up towards the left will there is so much amazing history in Italy including Biblical history. What are some of the cities and landmarks that you visited in your time there that you thought this is really special? Well I mean in terms of the cultural pieces absolutely Rome Florence Venice but even terrain like the city that we've been living in now has a really rich cultural piece dating back to the time of the Roman so we've been able to experience a lot here if you go a little bit outside of here. We've actually been to Greece a number of times and Essel Naika Sula Pie. We've been there. It's not actually far away. Who actually been to. Israel went for our anniversary a year before last. There's so much here it's often you live here you go. There's another building that's dating back to. You know like the the Twelfth Century or or before Christ is going is just normal. There's another one. It sounds amazing in the Odyssey. We don't go back for thirty two years I think So not quite the history but still a strong history. Sounds like your family knows a lot about Odyssey. So how has the program impacted your life specifically and especially if we could hear from? It'd be CNN. Sammy any particular episode. That made you think or Help strengthen your faith in God probably Snow Day though. Just one of their favorites. We've at least listened to it. Twenty Times still makes you missed. We laugh at it like crazy. Well where we live. There's not exactly that much snow so we can't ever do it so he just pretend that we are there. What are some other things that might surprise our listeners? About Italy especially Samuel CNN your listeners. Probably know pizza and Spaghetti. Those kinds of foods really any surprising foods or different cultural experiences that that you want to share with our listeners. Okay so every conversation. You haven't within Italian always comes back to food so like you're talking about Jesus and then someone says well let's go back to the Passover. Oh how that bread would have tasted so good. Don't you think so? Well we're excited that you guys are part of the club and we are so relieved to know that you are doing well because you know when we see the the list it says Italy one but we don't see one now we see you.

Famous for three waterways. The Atlantic Ocean on one side and the Pacific Ocean on the other and a manmade waterway. That runs through the middle. I've got it and I've been there before then through the door and arrived not far from the most famous canal in the world. Let's talk to gay the only club member in the country Panama. It's so exciting for me to be back in Panama because I took a cruise through the Panama Canal. `Bout five years ago so gay. Thank you for joining us on the PODCAST terror unhappy to be here. Tell us a little bit about what you're doing in Panama. My family moved here twenty two years ago when we had three little kids and so we decided that we would move for two years and well here. We are twenty two years later. That's amazing so What was it like raising your kids in Panama and did they listen to ventures and Odyssey growing up we to Odyssey The whole time they were growing up. I WANNA keep them connected with their American background. And also you know spiritually I think you need to be able to listen to what touches your heart. I love how you said. You know stories that touch your heart because that's really I think what the writers and the actors tried to bring to Odyssey do any episodes stand out that sort of maybe changed your thinking or had an impact on your family. My daughters are all in their twenties. And now we'll have conversations and someone will remember a line from an episode years ago. They'll remember Bob field in the field and Babu's in the booth and yeah and all of us know what that means because we were all together listening at the same time so your program was part of our family from my children's entire childhood and growing up into being teenagers even so you're part of the family. Obviously your daughters are older now and you still get the adventures Nazi club. So how have you been blessed by the club? I now have grandchildren. And that's the reason. I'm a member of the adventures. Odyssey club is so that my grandsons can listen. You've been in Panama for a number of years and as we've traveled the world we've been asking all of our Odyssey friends. What something about their country that we might not know or might surprise our adventures? Not as he listeners. Well the seasons are exactly opposite. We're right now smack DAB in the middle of summertime. We really only have two seasons. It's either wet or dry another thing that is really interesting about Panama especially the area where we live. We're at the opposite end of the country From where you went through the canal we're close to the Costa Rican border. Okay forty five minutes away and up in the mountainous areas there grow some of the best coffee in the world. So I wanted to find out. How did you get introduced to adventures? Not as you said you started listening. Your kids were young. Did you know about the show before then I had just By happenstance men listening today Christian radio station in the US. And I happen to bond The program and heard it and I thought you know my kids would really like that and your membership in the club is helping us to keep a adventures in Odyssey around for awhile and we are so grateful for that gay and so grateful for the chance to get to know you a little bit you know. Sometimes we see that we have one member in Panama. We don't know who that is a now we do. Yeah I actually. I'm surprised there aren't more people Who are listening to Odyssey here in either English or in Spanish and maybe they don't know what's available I. I think I'm going to have to to take a proactive step and see if I can find some people and let them know how they can be listening how their kids could be listening. Well we definitely appreciate our odyssey ambassadors Like you around the world so that would be great to to share Odyssey and again just so cool to talk with you.

A lot of episodes lake aac I'd say would bring comfort especially the arc res when George Barclay starts in the ministry and I just Kinda could sympathize besides a bit with another several other ferrets. I had but I think I need another moment to think because there's only eight hundred and something of them so you know now I mean while you're thinking I do have to ask you this. I understand that there are thirteen. Hundred volcanoes on Chile and a lot of them are active volcanoes. Do actually conceivable from here and he's active. There was a warning day. That's simple Cannell. Okay Yeah I can see some smoke a little bit too and you get volcano. Warnings is to let you know when when when they're kinda volatile it's always activity. Chile has a culture on earthquakes volcanoes. So people get very relaxing this if an earthquake gums and everybody's talking is a big deal about killing people arsia store. I can't remember who was but the super banners quake something like that when you jingles to allay Now that was called the fifth house on the left like that one little.

Erica like at school since our school is almost completely different. What surprises you when you hear about American schools? Well this doesn't have to do so much school uh-huh but I wondered how the kids can go. What's in the everyday by like a ice cream now? Have you seen God odd use adventures in Odyssey in your lives like how has it. Maybe John You closer to God or maybe some kind of insight or encouragement that you've gotten from the show Ev- interestingly it's really encouraging for us because it shows how people can live out biblical principles in everyday life like two days ago. We listen to the episode opposite. Is it day that talks about friendship necessarily handy. When you're navigating cross cultural friendships and that sort of stuff have you been able to introduce Odyssey to any any of your friends at school in English English as a as a parent that we abbreviated adventures in Odyssey?

"By this point Jesse. I think I've heard just about all the adventures and Odyssey episodes but I have to admit that I've never heard sounds of life before I hadn't heard it either. You know it definitely felt like Odyssey but also didn't feel like Odyssey or we had a chance to talk with writer. Paul mccusker back in Nineteen ninety-two. He was producer of adventure ventures modesty and also the writer of sounds of life. Let's hear about the creation of this unique drum Hey Paul Merry Christmas. Merry Christmas guys. Good to see you as always and we're glad you're in studio with US pleasure so listen Paul sounds of life came out in nineteen. Eighteen ninety two which was after Odyssey was already in production. Where did the idea come from to do? A drama specifically for the focus broadcast well adventures in Odyssey. If everybody remember is is part of the Audio Department at Focus on the family and so Family portraits the other. Things we had done came out of that department and Dave and I were working on Odyssey. Of course I think we were three years into it and we had heard that Some other guys in the department not Odyssey. They were beginning to work on an audio drama for the broadcast. We were intrigued because we kind of thought of ourselves as the audio drama guys but it was fair enough somebody else was playing with some ideas and that was good. Well then we begin to hear rumors that Things weren't going very well. They were working on this thing and it wasn't coming together they they weren't quite fixed on what it was gonNA be And how they were handling it so They asked David Nye to engage and saw. I remember having a meeting meeting with that team trying to discern what it was they were after and what came up was the sort of sounds of life. We thought is an audio drama. It would make sense that we're gonNA basis thing around sounds somehow and then chronicle the life of family beginning with Say the birth of a child all the way through and that sort of thing so these were the ideas that were being thrown around and So Dave and I said well if you want us to engage will you you know will jump into it but We're probably going to have to make it our own We're GONNA have to figure out how to do it and I remember In hindsight site that they gave us what they had written in of that original script I think we only kept maybe four lines of one scene because because it was a good scene it was actually the scene where the David the little boy comes in for his birthday and they tell him if he comes in before nine o'clock then he the fourth birthday. I remember Johnny so we kept that but I think the rest of it we started from Scratch Lau so what we did then in starting thing from scratch was Come up with a rather than scenes. We came up with sounds and I've got a whole list of the kinds of sounds that we thought would be quintessential for most people in their lives. Everything from toy horns. I've got a carnival. I've got fire crackling summer. Camp Sounds The sound of the Father Hammering Everything was attached to a sound and then that sound took us into quintessential life experiences. We thought I'm not only sounds like the writing process a little bit different but adventures not as episodes our listeners know are recorded in southern California. That's where the actors live makes sense to go to them but it sounds like this one might have been recorded in Colorado. It was actually. That was different. It's funny it sounds of life and looking back on. It was experiment on a lot of levels So Odyssey fans might recognize that with a a show we did call peace on Earth we had written. It is had written that with Dave Arnold. We went through all these sound ideas right of what would be. The quintessential sound year. At Christmas. Sounds of life was the same thing except based around a family family. So the other part of the experiments since focus on the family had moved to Colorado was can we record in Colorado What kind of base of talent we have here It would be handy to have a base of talent in Colorado since we were going out to burbank all the time and I remember we did some auditions. We had to set up a proper recording facility here in Colorado so that we could record them and at least at the level of sound of listeners would be used to from Odyssey so we did all of that here so is unusual on a lot of respects not only in terms of how it was created but also the way we put it altogether including the talent now so obviously took the writing upon yourself after somebody else get a shot of how is writing this drama different different from what you would do to create adventures episode. Well for me as a writer it was. It was in continuity with the kind of writing that I did before four Odyssey when I was writing dramas for churches and doing sketch based stuff and And this was what sounds of life was going to be if it was going to be a a sequence of quintessential moments in the life of a family as best as we could do in the amount of time we had I was going to get those snippets and just try to capture these moments so that they would go one after the other so for me. It didn't have the flow of an Odyssey episode with the traditional. It'll beginning middle and end right. This was more of a a hodgepodge that had an emotional through line to it in terms hopefully coming to a dramatic conclusion inclusion. But the way we did it was different from Odyssey Novi senior right right well something that was similar odyssey where some of the voices that were in the program Longtime Odyssey listeners. Probably Recognize Bob. Husson Chuck Bolt these voices in their Joe Colorado former Voice of Oscar was in there too and of course Dave Arnold Son Landon who voice cousins scrub in cody? Carper was in the program too. So would there be any other voices that our listeners would be recognized. Well it's funny because some of them They might recognize as secondary or voices in the background and Odyssey episodes because we recorded using Focus on the family employees. We did some auditions locally. And so There were two brothers FISK brothers who came in to do a couple of the roles and a handful of others from the staff. And I'm actually looking is. We're sitting here. I'm looking at pieces of paper with names and phone numbers of of all these people who are at least worked at focus on the family at one time or another and would've showed up an odyssey episodes background voices yes I recognized your voice in the the opening scene. You were delivering really forgotten about that. I could hear myself in the back room to go. This is why don't act shouldn't be ever. But what's Philip glossman something nefarious going on with his birth. I got emotional when I was listening to when HP London and of course passengers HP. London passed away just a little over a year ago with the Lord now but when I worked plugged in was Was My boss for a number of years and he actually married my wife in me so to hear him officiating. That wedding brought to you by is it was real. Flashback for me was sound of life for me well and it's very sweet. I have A note from from him in my files saying Hi Paul. It was fun doing radio again. Thanks for including me and it was lovely to hear his voice again. So did you direct the actors any differently because again. Maybe they weren't at the maybe professional quality that the actors from from Hollywood and Burbank are in the studio. How how did the recording go? well as I recall it was much the same as as we would We're just trying to get the lines. Yeah I think there might be a degree of coaxing that you have to do to To try to get the line readings that you want at the level that you want them and of course Some of it especially being land and Arnold Dave Arnold Son Yeah Dave was always involved in those anytime. We had landed in David's usually nearby. Especially if you listen. You'll hear the bouncing in the bed scene which I believe Dave recorded at home with land and bouncing on the bed so Dave was very important to how this whole thing came together. And it's interesting because when you get good people who know what they're doing and even if they're an experienced I was listening to the show again thinking that we got really good performances all in all I mean sometimes you can listen and hear something in the tone that tells you it's not a very experienced actor. They pulled somebody you you know a secretary from somewhere to do but I would say all in all the performances held up in this after hearing all these years. Well Yeah. This program has not aired in years years And like you said you look back with hindsight. Is there anything else that was maybe special and personal to you and you listen to it again. Well personal for me is that I. I didn't have kids when I wrote it. In fact I would have been early thirties so to write scenes like the hospital scene and even the birth. I've seen in fact I noticed one little thing that I would have done differently in the writing and that is The overuse of names. They actually call their son. I'm David quite a bit and I know we did that to help identify. WHO's talking because it is audio drama but at the same time I'm aware that I actually? It rarely ever used my son's name. I call him son. I'm we have certain nicknames are certain things we might use but to actually call him by his name. Is this unusual for me. And I think if I were to write it over again bringing what I know now to the script and to the life span now them Twice that age almost It was interesting to me that there are some things I might change subtly but I was also surprised at at how little I would change because somehow maybe through the guidance of collective input from people like Dr Dobson an end of variety of people who have lived out. Some of these things We got it I think we. We got the gist of it right. Yeah Yeah we'll greet you always great great to have the multi-talented mccusker in studio with us. Thanks for joining.
