Bride killed by suspected drunk driver shortly after wedding
"The family of a killed Carolina bride is urging drivers not to drink and drive. I'm Lisa dwyer. The mother of the bride had just unwound with a change of clothes and a glass of wine when the sounds of sirens gave the first impression that her daughter's wedding night had gone awry within minutes, Lisa Miller was riding with her new in laws to the South Carolina beach road where authorities say a woman driving under the influence at twice the speed limit slammed into the golf cart escorting the newlyweds from their wedding reception. Miller says it was like a bad movie. Like it's bad enough to get killed by a drunk driver, but you got killed on your wedding night in your wedding dress and plowed down. 34 year old Samantha Miller died Friday and folly beach South Carolina, her sister Mandy Jenkins said she can't forgive the drunk driver. Because she made a terrible mistake that has changed our lives in a lot of lives forever. And she urges others not to make the same mistake. So bringing awareness to what drunk driving can really do. We're a real, we're a real family from a.

"Because I love the world and the setting and the storytelling and gloomhaven so much, but I don't want to just skip it and go. That's a guy here and he's nice. But I did. I did the thing. I was like, yeah, there's a lady. She's kind of grumpy. Let's go kill some. Yeah, this is frost. This is crossover. It's like, you know, it's like I don't want to do that. Yes. Because I want to get into it more than that. Yes. But like you, even as a performer, I'm not going to read out a dense. It was pretty hard. A lot of text. And I feel like even the fonts on the cards are smaller than they were in clue payments, but more text on. And I could be imagining that. But it is like, oh gosh. Oh gosh. And again, it's adding to that load of you. Well, you know, you've got an orator, you are an oracle of rules. You are trying to play a board game. You're trying to make sure your friends are having a good time.

"Which I don't know whether it will, but at the moment I'm having aware of a time with it, like after we broached that, got through that barrier of not using the app. And we're now in the elysian fields of just killing monsters and having fun. It's sustains that quality for the entire time. This is a game that you split with your Friends and you will have a weekend game night for like the next year that will probably keep growing fun surprises at you. I took a by accident took a tiny peak at some of the new rule stickers because I just loosened the box basically. You're absolute scumbag. I saw them by accident. People like you should be locked up. But one of the things that I saw there, I won't tell you what it is, but it made me go like, you got little tiny chuckle, and it's like, yeah, that's what you want. That's what this game can be at that price point, but you need to know that you'll like it first. Yes. And going, yeah, draws the line is just fantastic for cutting away all of that admin. You just open the book and your scenario is ready. It's all about the decisions and your characters and that stuff. This is much more management heavy, but the depths. Are exciting. It's a murky jacuzzi that might just be incredible. It means it sounds like someone's like defecated in it or something. It sounds like a kind of metal band. I'm going to start it after this. It's like metal shoe gaze. Anyway, I think that there's a lot here to unpack quite literally 27 sheets. But I'm excited to really get into this. And I have to caveat again the podcast here of being like, these are early impressions. Very early. And I think that in the same way that the

"Oh, that's what my friend who played it thought it was. Maybe one of our Friends is wrong. Yeah, quite possibly. But I thought they were playing because they were like, but how do you work out? Which is slum which is fast. And then they laughed. I'm like, oh, it's literally whether it's you're going slow or going fast. Yeah. In terms of like, if you choose like the 13 or the 86, if you choose the 13, you're going fast. So you're going fast. So it's linked to that. Yes, no, it is. Yeah, basically it is, but you say it's like your turn. I'm going fast. Yeah, yeah, yeah. And then you use all the cards, not only have different initiative values, but you also have different abilities if you're going slow or if you're going fast. So if you're going fast, you're probably going to move around, do loads of damage if you're going slow, you'll sort of buff yourself and prep and you can build up time magic tokens that then you spend to just explode. Exactly. That's what the little tokens are. Tokens are what allows you to then decide I'm going to go fast and go and ruin a load of people in a room. But yeah, having an AP prone friend just sat there looking at a full fist of cards going like, oh my God. 'cause there's so many options. But you know, he's getting into the flow of things now and enjoying it. 100%. And that's it. And

"And then having to have them in certain positions. I think it locks you into what to do quicker. If you've got one player around the table being like, I need someone to be here in someone to be here. That changes the shape of what you can do. And reduces the other players like, oh my God, there's so many things I can do. What do I do? It's like you narrow their options almost for them. And I would say that like immediately the first proper mission in the game has some little AI true piece standing around, which I was immediately terrified of because there was a point in gloomhaven where it kind of hit a low of having a mission where you were trying to run rush through an area and there were lots of units fighting each other, which is a sort of very, this is a video game level. Yes. Like, get out of the city. And there's a big war around you. In reality, that resulted in an absolute ton of micromanagement. But actually at that point, I was really enjoying because I think at that stage I was just incredibly anxious and it was allowing me to basically do a spreadsheet what's that next to my brother in a way, which wasn't really healthy, but you know, whatever. Right. Not great game design, but it worked for me at the time. However, in this one, you have these units and they're not really units. They're basically just like they'll stand there and retaliate to attacks. And it means you don't have to run them. It's not adding overheads. It's not like a load on the CPU. Of your view, putting emphasis on that. And that was great because we had a thing at one point where the person playing the banner was like, oh, no, I can't do my thing. And then it looks at the card and I'm like, hang on a minute and then I was like, this is just that guy standing behind me, which means I can do this cool, spear that.

"Partially because of the fact that I just taught the game, set up the game and had this thing we've just talked about of scrambling around trying to find cards in the box and going, oh, just a minute, we'll have fun in a minute, once I've done all the bits. And then sat down to realize that my hand of cards was in fact two different ends of cars. And had a boy moment when I had to think about what I was going to do on my turn. As it turns out, it's not that fiddly. The framing of it of it being you are this split personality is a little bit overstretching. It would be, sure. The easiest way to describe it is it's like a fighting game where you change stances. Yes. So it's basically that you have two stances and you have moves at the end of the move, you shift stance. And then it means what you do is you finish with that hand of cards, you put it to one side, go pick up the other hand of cards and you swap out your miniature for another miniature in the same space that has a slightly different kind of that vibe. The final part seems like a bit of faff. But I guess you don't have to. Not that much faff. Okay. And you don't have to. It's just a bit of fun. He's a bit of fun. He's a bit fun. It's quite nice. Okay. And then effectively, you are quite limited in terms of what you're doing. Right. It has a lot of ranged attacks that are specific distance based. And lots of things where it's like, it's going to do everything to things that are too spaces away. Or everything that is one space away. And I found that quite exciting quite fun to play with because it meant a lot of it was

"And actually, the thing that was worrying me as well was like, I was sitting down to play this with two other people. And my initial thought on those first few scenarios with all the admin was like, is this just a two player game? Is this a two player game and no further? And I was worried I was like literally lying in bed going like, am I going to have to tell someone that they can't have to leave? Because I just can't be bothered doing all this admin for free player setups. And now I'm like, oh, I feel I can rest easy. I can have this third person in my group. We can play the game how we want to play. And I think you're right, because I played it a bunch of the original bunch to a specific two people and with three people it's too much admin. And also, you know, I think a crucial part of this is I feel like the level of complexity in a game, games like these is a bit too high for some people, but I have some friends who are just on the cusp of it, right? And I know that it's like, this game is probably a bit too fiddly for them. But if they can get their head around it, I know they're going to really get a lot out of it. And I have friends who don't play games much, but they really got into this. But they can't do that unless you are basically acting as the game master. Yeah. And you're the person who is knowing the answers to all the rules questions, moving the components around and all that stuff. And that's fine, but it does mean that as that player, the box manager and the game manager and probably crucially the host of the evening. Yes. You are carrying a lot. And sometimes it's the fact that the app, it's like getting a rice cooker. It means that you've got an element of the evening.

"Could get my head around to be honest, like the little things they had in jaws of the lime, which are like the tokens for the different things to tell you the order. But again, tell you the order of the units in terms of what all they're going to go into. But again, this is where we come back to, this game really, I haven't played with an app yet, because I know there is an official app coming in along, and there's going to be for the game. And I know that there's third party stuff that does it for you at the moment, which is what I'm using right now. Yeah. But it's just such an improvement. The quality of life changed from me playing gloomhaven without and with an app, huge. And I do find it very hard that there's not a mention of it in the manual at all that you can play with are you sure? Well, I didn't see it. Maybe I actually, you know what? I'm not saying that. I'm reversing that because I may have skimmed over it. Well, for me, it's like, you know, what it doesn't have is a giant page right at the front that's like play this game with an app. Because you should. The thing is is that for me, it's like, it's great. They have all these quality of life changes. But it is a one step forward to steps back for me a little bit. Where you have like step forward, loot is more interesting. That's not a quality of life, things, just a good thing. Luke is watching, it's not just going to be coins. Step back, now before every single mission you have to set up an individual loot deck. But with the app, it knows what's in the loot deck. It will pull things for you. You press the button. Yeah, and then it's like initiative, right? You have these sort of tokens that you have to organize before every combat. That's something that was in gloomhaven as well.

"In my calendar, and the fact that you have this thing where you're going to have seasons in this game, so it's going from like, at the moment, it starts off in summer and you get the sense that it's like, hang on a minute. This is easy mode. Like, I'd say about 70% of the cardboard in this box when you unpop it is just blue. It's like, this is a very icy game, and it's like, I get the impression that when it gets to the winter, things are gonna be really unpleasant. Yeah, it's like, it's like some in the flavor text somewhere. It's like the summers of in up in the north in frost. They're like, okay. The windshield are some of the worst winters you could ever imagine. I'm excited for that as well. But I was gonna say just something while we're on this concept of like mains and puddings, right? What if I told you there's sometimes puddings in the mains? Americans would feel comfortable with that, I know, but I'm not so sure like a French toast for breakfast this morning or all the gloves are off. But yeah, no, we had a mission where there was a sort of a surprise that happened within like in one of the rooms because you have this lovely system where you have this main scenario book that celebs scenario and when you accomplish certain goals, open certain doors, you get out a whole separate book and it will give you the next piece of the puzzle and tell you what to do. And I was worried that that was going to involve this sort of mid game setup that would be annoying. It tells you all the components you need at the top. Ahead of time, yeah. So you know what you're going to need to put on the map in the second half. But yeah, this second half had this lovely like extra little mini moment that was like, oh, there's like some of that meta game is trickling into the main game. You had a basketball mini game. We had the basketball menu. The game.

"The grain, yeah, the green filters on this are a little different, but I can handle that. That's fine. It expects a level of expertise, which is fine if you know what you're doing. Right. But the issue I think is that then when you are trying to cater for this such a broad number of people who are all experts at this point, a lot of people really know what they're doing with gloomhaven. I self included. Right. How do you do that without annoying people? And there are a lot of people out there who do get annoyed about the idea of using apps. And also, I think, on a purely like, you know, if you're making this game, I completely would understand like, do you really want to make a game that there's a chance 15 years from now, people can't play it. Yeah. Like, you're happy with that. And that's fine, yeah, that's all good. You will be able to play it. I don't see the reality in which you won't be. Like, the thing is, I'm glad that the stuff is there, right? Or whatever. I'm glad that the components are there for the people who want the components. Who want to have to do all the monster management thing with the virtual hands and somehow afraid of this game actually vanishing from the earth 50 years from now when I'm sure they'll want to crack it out again. But the thing is, is that with the app, I think the game maybe should recommend that you buy it with the app because those first two or three, as the person who owned the game and was teaching the game was trying to get people in, it was like, come on guys, I'm sure it's fun in here. Just come on down. All we have to do is manage all of these individual monsters HP and status effects and elements, and we will forget about them, but it's a promise. It's a really tight balance puzzle.

"At it, you don't really see those little spots. You don't really see those little tiny spots for stickers. But then you look closer and you see there's like loads of them. And they're everywhere. And they're in weird places as well. It's great. Oh my everywhere. Basically, right off the bat, if people were coming into this being like, what is this? Is this going to be a brand new experience? Is it going to be a sequel? It does feel quite secretly in many ways. And the fact that you get dumped straight into a much higher level of complexity straight away, which is actually really nice, because it doesn't feel like that. Oh, we need to go back to the start and go through the tutorial. You are just like jumping straight in. If you want to, to playing quite complicated characters and doing quite fun, complicated things. At the same time, the core of the game is really very, very much the same. Yes. You basically have these characters that allow you to play these cards, that lets you do one action from one card, another action from another. We're not going to big detail on this, because if you don't know, there's quite a lot of resources out there for getting a sense of what gloom haven is. But the mechanics of it are very, very similar. In fact, the manual is this unbelievably thick thing. Yes. Which 50 pages or something? It's silly. It's so dense and terrifying. It's like almost a centimeter thick. But actually, if you know how to play gloomhaven, you skim through it with quite alarming speed because there are areas of the manual, which I'll just clearly marks as being like, this is something we've changed. And to be honest, I don't know what it would be like going into frost even for the first time if you don't know how to play and trying to use that manual to learn the game because gosh.

"Anyway, I was remembering that story when I was punching this out because my hands were getting so dry. And I just thought, I've never done this much punch board before. My shoulders started hurting a bit from hunching over the table and punching and organizing. It was intense. It takes a long time. I started just setting up the box and then learning the game. And I said, learning the game, I already was skimmed through the manual and looked at the bits that were changes to gloomhaven because I know gloom haven't quite well in terms of the rules. And it took in total I think about four hours, four and a half hours, just to prep the box and refresh the rules. And it was enjoyable. In the box together was enjoyable, but that just gives you an idea of the scale of what is in this thing. Yes. It's like not content to just have like, I was thinking about so we should also maybe frame this with what our haven credentials are. Matt has obviously played a huge amount of base game haven. I've never even played base game haven except on the PC version. And I've played jaws of the lion. The little smaller box version. And I just think the thing that jumped out of me on opening frost haven was like, the little tiny map of the town that comes in in jaws of the lion is like, I can't really describe it. Like maybe like twice two postcards big. Maybe a little bit bigger than that. And then the map for frost haven is like the Game of Thrones board game. And it's something that is like almost entirely aesthetic as an object. Yeah. Or referential, it's not something that serves a fundamental gameplay purpose. You don't need it on the table all the time. But nevertheless, it takes up half my table. Right now. And that was, you know, with gloomhaven you had this big fallout map.

We're in the middle of nowhere in a strange, cold cave that we've specially found. Yeah, it's quite a cursed room. It's kind of this like squat attic room, and that was like, oh, don't worry, I'll sound prep this room just a touch. I'll make this real bad.

It's gray outside and we are going to be talking about frost haven. Yeah. So our review of this will come at some point, but obviously as you would expect, this is a gigantic chunky box. If you know anything about gloomhaven, it is this gigantic, heavy thing filled with cardboard that has all manner of different characters to unlock. All manner of different monsters to fight. All manner of different secrets in boxes. It's like a gigantic dungeon crawling adventure that might last you years. And we loved it. It's a fantastic game. Now, there's a sequel. They've done it again. A full fat sequel in an even bigger box that proves to, it looks like it's just going to do the same thing again. Yeah, pretty much. But just more of it, I think. This is like a little, it's like heavier, both in terms of my brain, bastion against it, and also like the box is absurdly heavy. Oh gosh, it's like a 36 pound box. It's the first game box I have actually like carried around the building. That I thought this is possibly the first time I thought this game might actually have serious accessibility issues, but surely because of the fact that I think some people wouldn't be able to carry this.

"So today i want to tell you a quick story from a that. I made about ten years ago. I was in the country of new zealand. Doing some travels for a few weeks. And i was sitting in a youth hostel looking for a flight to my next destination and struck up a conversation with a local man who happened to be in the room and we spoke for about twenty or thirty minutes. He gave me some good recommendations. On where i might like to go to eat for the rest of my time there. And what airlines. To us on the way out of town but the real interesting part that came up was about half an hour into the conversation his eyes got real big and he looked at me and he just said hey mate i just gotta tell you. Your english is amazing and this whole time. I guess he had thought that. I was from either china or japan and then i just had the most amazing sounding american accent when if you really just stop to think about it. The more obvious answer is just that. I am a person of asian descent who was born and raised in america. And that's why. I have such a convincing american accent and i don't tell the story to make fun of the man by any means but to highlight the way that we do this all the time out in the world and especially at the poker table. I can't even tell you how many times i've burned myself by showing up to a poker game and then immediately labeling someone as the whale or the action player or the player who bluffs too much or the player that i know i can definitely run over. I don't know how many times i've done this. And then gotten burned by them. Acting in playing in ways that went counter to the label. That i had i assign them as my first impression. And so the danger of first impressions and really locking into them is that we lose our ability to be flexible to stay aware of what's happening in our surroundings as things unfold and to change our strategies to change our approach based on what we're seeing one we get locked in we have a way of just ignoring all the new information coming in from our environment and that really handicaps us in our ability to play at our highest levels because in order to play at your highest level. What you're going to always need to do is be as present as you can be to. What's happening right now. Things changed throughout the course of a session. Maybe your first impression was right but after a series of events happening in the game it could be completely different because people get emotional and people have different reactions to different things happening in the game and so what. I want to leave you with. today's this. If you ever start to get locked into a certain impression of somebody oh. This player is too tight. This player is bluffing. Way too much and so. I'm definitely going to do this. It might be correct in this but you need to be open to the fact that you might need to change that. Read as time goes on. So don't lock in. Make sure that you stay open. Flexible to new feedback coming in from the environment. And that's how you're going to be able to stay on top of the waves of everything that's happening so that you can be the one who takes advantage of everybody's state as they are all right. That's all i got for today. Hope that helps. Keep that in your awareness. And i promise you will start to get much better results the longer your sessions go if you've been enjoying the content on this podcast and you want to connect with me outside of the show. You can find me on twitter. I write on there regularly more content about how to play poker at your highest levels each day. It's at jason. Be sue all right. That's all i got for today.

Were you afraid of putting your foot in your mouth like you didn't wanna say anything. I think i do that anyways. Like i think. That's my biggest problem in life. As i'm not good at first impression i don't and maybe everybody's job is like this. I don't know but like i don't go around like i don't like a lot of opportunities to like shake hands with with big bosses. I don't i don't do well in those situations. And then i don't like go around trying to get bosses attention and i don't like i don't do those things. I'm not good at the politics jobs or anything like let me good. Let me ask a question. What's worse making a bad first impression or no impression at all. And the reason i bring this up is mike situation. Is that if mike would have made kind of goofy first impression where it was something a little bit to the point where they go. Who is that guy or you. Basically were invisible that day. You're saying that's what you're saying like if you call like if you if you met them with your naked remember who member. We had a staff member who came into the studio jack black snake when those two were here intern. Jack black is forever to tom. Mcconnell one of our big bosses will always be known as the guy that came into the studio. He left the naked..
"one impressions" Discussed on Caught Offside
"If he's not the style of play will be will be. Maybe a little bit of a throwback but it might suit the personnel which is essentially. What rafael likes to do. I curious who's played more minutes in the last year Rich listener petrie. It's gotta be pedrick right. Oh qassam was doing it. Because didn't charleston get hurt for a little bit last year. Plus petrie was doing in the champions league. I don't not be gotta be petrie. I don't know but it's It's a lotta minutes. Yeah My other for good first impression. From the weekend tottenham. I i had mentioned this like it was just funny to me. I felt like the irony was laid on pretty thick. As the manager. Who once referred to tottenham as that harry kane team watched a hurricane luis tottenham defeat a manchester city side. That looked like they would've wanted to be the hurricane team. That was i think not lost on any time fancy. Were watching that a couple of things that made this first impression particularly interesting to me and i wonder if you thought this too when you saw their lineup when i saw tottenham starting eleven. I was like this. They know that the season starts today right. I mean they were just names out there that i just. i don't know i just wasn't a galley. Well well yeah you kinda ganga yet. Ten ganga i mean deli. I think only played fifteen games last season But you know devon sanchez. oliver skip stephen burdwan lucas. Mora like these are guys who were kind of in and out and you know all of their new set christian romero is is their new signing their big money signing defense but they went with david sanchez over narrow. I know he's coming off an injury and he did come on as a sub late but like they kinda just went with like a more. Don't know just. I looked at the lineup. I was like oh dear But they all played well like it was one of those games. Where usually there's someone that i can look at. It'd be like okay. Taught him one. But this guy we got gotta keep an eye on that. But like i don't know who i would even say. Everybody did their jobs and it was. It was a really impressive performance from them on. Isn't it interesting that they they played with the counter attacking style or it was a much better. One dan. josie marina was ever able to effect. Well not willing to say that yet. And i don't want to andrew come on come on jayjay you look. I don't want to please god. No i don't want to rehash this. But look tottenham tottenham score one hundred. Something goals like they had. They had games against southampton against manchester united. Where you know. They scored six five. So it's not unprecedented that you know they play well on the back. All right okay. Well done it before our anyway Skysports doing a little bit of an an analysis of what was different in terms of like counter attacking a team against manchester city but it was much more effective and it played much better football and more effective open on the counter-attack and they showed weird the forward players. The average starting position to the former players was under marino versus where was under nuno weekend and it was just more positive and i will pack it at that. I leave it at that. Of course more like they're going to be more positive so it doesn't surprise me but but we've seen them play well on the counter before. I'm not i'm not. I will not accept somebody saying we've never we haven't seen this because we have they have played well on the counter-attack before it's okay you can be smug about it all being small. I'm not being smart. I think nunu deserves a lot of credit. He said of course he does. He also seemed just from an optics view in the way he spoke after the game he seemed more kind of. I don't know i. When i think of noon hill from his time at wolves i see him. In jacket on the sideline and he looks kind of miserable bought. It's just kind of. He was more reserved. And this was london new. No he was wearing a little bomber jacket he cool. He looked who looked very cool. There's also something approaching. Maybe this is more more more time spent in england. He's more comfortable with the culture and the language but he seemed more What's the word charismatic. To in the way that he spoke so no deserves. He deserves a ton of credit because that team was set up perfectly and they played. They played for him. And look. i'm not please please please. I'm not trying to make this to be some kind of i wish josie. We're still here. That's not what i'm doing like they're like seeing deli out there. The way he was playing he ran eleven kilometers. I think it was the most of anybody over the weekend. That's not that's not the deli we know and like marino gave up on that guy. He can't play for me hugely sake. Huge mistake so yeah. This was the toxicity is gone. That was my big takeaway watching tottenham in this game. It's just like i don't know the you could just kinda like feel at the atmosphere and that place was as good as i think. I've ever seen it in that new stadium. That's another point. I wanted to bring up. Was that you know me. I prefer stadiums to be renovated more in like the you know. You've got this great historical thing now. Yes improve but don't build a new stadium. I because some of them are soulless. And we've seen that bought whatever they did with the the sound in that stadium when they started singing. Are you watching. Harry can like it was it was unbelievable and and there was attack. Oh towards the end. But i think mack not dart made on jack relish in the center the park where he went through him By the way. I i thought this week and there were a lot more beefy tacos than we've seen in the last maybe in the last few years more more left on them which weren't maybe picked up so much. Particularly at the end of that game tottenham or.
Dose of Leadership
The Importance of Successfully Introducing Yourself
"How to introduce yourself when you're brand in a branding leadership position or a brand new team or maybe you're a brand new project manager to certain project a lot of have been there and i've ever received a lot of over the years questions about this and they've answered them and i thought well this'll be episode because people seem to be concerned about it and i think i thought about those times i've been. I've been multiple times. And it's very stressful. It's when i think back because first impressions are crucial. And you don't want to be digging yourself out of whole from a bad first impression so you wanna make it as effective as possible in. I guess when we think about this there's multiple types of situations that you can be in. You probably have to handle them all a little bit differently. And as i was thinking about what i would talk about in this episode. I think i think about those times. Were even when i've coached a few clients when they've been brand new to position that there are certain situations that are different than others. For example i think the best situation to be in is if you become part of a brand new team or a brand new project that has that has never been formed before. I think you're a definite advantage when you're being one of the first one to join and create a legacy right and so that's when we think about team building and we think about leadership that's kind of the classical sense right 'cause now we we're all getting to know each other we're of going through this experience together. It's a great way to kind of do life together and share the ups and downs in the highs and lows. It's a great opportunity Particular when you've got a blank slate so that's one scenario. I think to me on the ideal scenario. The second one is an. I've had this happened a couple of times where you become the new member of an existing team or existing project. That's already good shape and they've been doing well. I think it's a good situation to be in. It is fraught with some risk though. Because you're the good thing going here you come late to the party essentially and you know how do you thread that needle without disrupting a good thing

"Belongs in a war zone. We were sitting in the lobby and It was such a scene. You know you'd see peter jennings and then you'd see christiane amanpour and really cool right. 'cause everybody's just like you know. I belong hair right. Tara sutton freelance. Journalists did not feel like she belonged in baghdad. When she got there in two thousand three at the start of the iraq war and then up popped marla like hi. I'm marla marla ruzicka in jeans and a long afghan style sheepskin best. She looked like a hippie. You know mean and she was skinny and her hair was kind of uncombed. And she's a bedraggled cute but bedraggled and just sort of like floating around like what are you doing here exactly the two women start talking and tara. The freelance journalist says she's they're writing an article about iraqi children in war and goes i was just in afghanistan. And there's a lot of traumatize people there. And i remember like we were laughing. A lot of traumatize people enough denison like not your thoughts were what a ding dong like. Who is this person. I mean the first impression of her was mystifying. Macos quil lawrence admit marla more than a year earlier in afghanistan when she'd inexplicably popped up at the beginning of that war. How did she even get here. I'm in most of us. Took a pretty arduous route. Either people came across land from pakistan or got on some of the early flights that flew into an abandoned airstrip north of the capital. How is she surviving here. Where all of us have trucked in a about little cash to try and get by. She's come here without a place to stay without a driver or a security detailer and she's already couch surfing at this point right. Yeah and she didn't act like the rest of us. She looked like the rest of us. She didn't fit and by the rest of us. He means the four kinds of people that usually show up at the beginning of conflict.

"one impressions" Discussed on The Spawn Chunks - A Minecraft Podcast
"Wanted to there was a village very close by and i spent the first few episodes trading my way up to diamond ghia before i even went caving and i had a foot june three pickaxe by that point that i could go caving with and get as many resources as possible because like i've said in when we've been talking about like the culpa rural color enroll ryan and everything like fortune. Three is now going to be the best way of getting hold of tons of resources in early game so i had a lot of fun doing that. I'm now working on designing. A tiny little hobbit hole should turn up in an episode soon Which is going to be like my home in the village. I've been drafting some stuff in creative using muslims leaves which are so good for making like the grass roof on a kind of that whole like an earth ship kind of build. I think there's so much better than grouse blocks or honestly if you're used to using to fine connected grouse where it kind of folds over the side of the block. Basically the same thing so really excited about being able to build a hole in that kind of style Last but not least. My patriots has also relaunched. We used to run on paper emcee Which is a fork of Another sort of serve jaw which is designed to optimize certain things about the code making it easier for multi player stuff. A paper hadn't released one point. Seventeen yet. But spigot had so i went to went to that compiled a new Server jar and it runs really. Well as far as i can tell I've heard a few people having a performance issues on a vanilla one point seventeen server but we had fifteen people online at once for the launch of this all exploring in different directions Because yeah they they. They work fast. It turns out they've already posted screen shots from the end and talk about polling locations on the never reflect they are. They are rushing the the The early game but Yeah i think it's it's apparently performed very well. As far as reports go from the service so far nobody's had any significant issues so crossing my fingers that continues nice. It's always interesting to see the different approach. You know to To multiplayer service when minecraft updates right like you've got i. I don't believe infinity cove is going to reset so there's going to be two servers on my and that are longtime servers and will be updated but not reset you know. And then you've got you know your stuff where you've got three essentially new worlds under your umbrella that have been that have been updated and We're using fabric on both of them. And i i don't i've not explored I i read into saw them available with spigot and and paper before but I i only. I think i just went to fabric because of the performance specifically for my computer. And maybe for other computers out there do you find. Do you find that spigot and paper were engineered to have it be an easier experience for the client. And do you do do patrons or people that want to play on a paper. mc or a spigot server. Do you have to have a special launcher or does that..

Product Creation and Consumer Expectations With Eternal CEO and Founder Reggie James
"You write a very good blog. Newsletter thing on substance called product lost. You have a a a a start up called eternal that's somewhere in in the ether in the process of You know going through the beta process and getting a lot of feedback. I guess do you have a a launch on the horizon like. When do you think you'll be out in in the public. Yeah i think this is something. I've been meditating on a lot. Like i think product is like a lot of false starts and you go through these cycles and like it took us three or four months to get to like an alpha tickets like another three or four months to get to like a private beta and then another like three months ago like a public beta in there were like. Oh jesus oh jesus and then like we have to pull back a lot and then took us another three or four months until late. You realize like all right. You're trying to just like let's say you get twenty five percent right on like the first thing. Then you're like all right. Let's see we got it to like forty percent right on. The next thing is like oem script so much but then you get fifty percent right and let you're trying to get some at least eighty percent right eighty percent like that's a be it can keep living without having to like get completely torn down so all that to say i refuse to say a day. Because are you a big believer in like first impressions really are super important. Like in life on product goes. Yeah i think. I think my answer is yes you know i think particularly for consumer one thing that really annoys me is when people tweet something like this is what roadblocks looked like at launch. And so don't ever think that your product is too early psych. Okay but that was two thousand six or whatever on like you know shitty web like that is not consumer expectation now like that's not how that works and so i really have a belief in first impressions. I also just have a believe in like building. Something that's beautiful. It's one thing to understand when things are going to be like rough around the edges. But it's another thing to produce something. That simply i don't know i think i looked at a lot of consumer products and i just don't think that they're any good at all and people are like. Oh it's lake. No that's like a psycho principle from the
Stripe valuation soars to $95bn after latest fundraising
"Kicking off with the weekend. The biggest by far was at stripe finally closed that enormous round of funding that we heard about a couple of months ago now the new investment and unnamed round of capital if you will is worth six hundred million at ninety five billion dollar valuation now my first impression was that surely surely this is the last time stripe raises before it goes public but then i remembered this is stripe so it may not be now. The browns near the top end of its previously reported. Seventy billion to one hundred billion dollar valuation range that bloomberg reported back in november. So we can presume. It was at least reasonably competitive at that price which is pretty crazy. The brown set stripe up to be worth of course more than one hundred billion when it does go public. The only other company that i can think of. That's private that is about to go public. That is worth a similar amount of money. In theory possibly is coin base out and stripe did release some growth metrics as part of its funding. News they are very very milk toast but here they are. It has more than fifty companies that process more than one billion dollars a piece on its platform and that it's quote enterprise in quote revenue is its largest and fastest growing revenue slice and the enterprise rev more than doubled last year. So that means the strub grew at least fifty percents in two thousand twenty but probably less than one hundred percent. If i'm doing the math correctly and by less than one hundred percent i'm presuming start didn't grow revenue by one hundred and seventy percent last year.

Oppo find x3 pro review
"Embargo for the for the find x three pro lifted this morning this is okposo latest and greatest opo and oneplus share parent company. Bb case so there will be some overlap in what we talk about We don't know a lot about the oneplus series but what we know about the finance three pro. I think will dovetail nicely into the rumors for the oneplus nine. So let's start with you. Miriam you have this phone. It's oboe is not a brand name and north america yet. But i think it's becoming a bit more ubiquitous in europe where alex is you've reviewed one pl- or oboe phones for years now and you're you're among the first people to bring kind of these. Chinese brand opal vivo. Walkway into the purview of us audiences. So when you take a look at the x three pro. What's your first impression. Is this a phone that was made for a worldwide audience or is this more a phone that was made for a chinese audience. That is them being sort of adapted for the west. I think we're at the point now. Where i wanna odd xiaomi to your last i think yeah okay. I think we're the point. Where really these global launches of these phones the me levin from shami recently of course the oppo phoenix three pro and financial three series our global phones through and through. And i think that that's very exciting to me. Now we get the short end of the stick in north america. You're in canada. I'm in the us. Because we still don't get full five g support for our weird bands. And that means that i hesitate to recommend this phone to folks live on the north american continent of this time. I haven't tested the oppo yet on five g. here i'm hoping that as qualcomm becomes more omnipresent not that it isn't already but i mean in terms of its Band support for five g. sub. Six that we get eventually to a point where even buying global phone will just work on some bands in us. Kind of like four g. Lt. foams do and in canada. So i think these phones feel like truly global phones to me. I think that the biggest challenge the biggest obstacle that existed in the pass with these two years ago three years ago. If you imported one was the software. Felt very chinese in the sense that it was. It's like it's hard to explain. But there's a certain flavor to chinese phones if you've ever used one that doesn't have google services on it and that's changed radically. I think caller west which is what apple runs which is an on top of android is even closer now to oxygen. Which is what one plus has which makes sense. Bbq groups same company but in the past. That wasn't always the case. And i think xiaomi's done a very good job as well as an improving it appears to be more you know more universal to the global markets to customers in different countries. So i really have no qualms with this phone i think. It's it's a solid all-round flagship. It brings to the table some things we've never seen before and it on top of that. You know short of the five g support from north. America is a truly global phone so alex. You're the only person among the four of us that uses this phone. Where in the markets intended give us your overview of how fits into the uk european market. And what your first impressions are so whether fit into the market. Whether hoping to the mock i think is in the gap. The is currently in the process of being vacated by wa so there is a a room for another major player in europe and the uk. And i think that's that's where they plan to slow us into already seeing that taking advantage of always current challenges in china whether the now the the number one manufacturer but yeah i think in terms of just the quality the phone. It's it builds on what we saw in the next two pro in little ways last year But the my money this is a little bit of a one. Step forward one step back. Sort of a situation They're all the things. I really enjoyed about the findings to pro- And it it just seemed to have every angle sort of covered in terms of photography and a big part of that is super zoom telephoto in it. Yeah oddly something that a lot of brands of moving away from this year with the exception of while way sometime maybe xiaomi That's something i really miss. Unfor- photography scented phone that seems like a big emission. Especially when you have this weird microscope thing which is fun to play around with but is not going to have anywhere near the practical value In terms like dealer photography assume would get you So that's one sort of disappointments. That i have with it Made worse by the fact that. I'm not a massive found. The microscope The other side air you. i know this is. This is a one. A one point of conflicts on this phone denialism massive out of the microscope. But just before we get to that. The other thing is Find extra prolapsed yet no wireless charging is kind of becoming a table. Stakes feature ever since apple introduced is Now we finally have that but the battery life is just null. Great unstaffed That's the problem right When you getting in the region of twelve to thirteen hours In its its fooling over after about three and a half hours screen on you know especially for me coming from pixel five and show. I've been spoiled a little bit by that phone but Yeah it's haunted. Described the boundary line for this thing is anything but just a big disappointment for me. I would agree with that in the week or so that i've used it especially coming from the galaxy s twenty one pixel five. This is a big battery. that just doesn't perform like a big battery but were still a month out from launch and miriam. I know you haven't spent a ton of time with it but what's your impression of. I wanna come back to the camera. Because i think the the cameras a sort of a question mark for me. Every time i've spoken to one. Plus they give me different answers for why they made the decisions they did around the load out but the phone. Form factor right. They made a big deal about this single piece of glass on the back and how they machine did and you know burned it in killing at seven hundred degrees and puts a magic spell on it to keep its shape and all that. What's your impression of the form of this device. It's really interesting. And i think it's something that a lot of people it's pretty arresting to somebody who's looking at it from the back for the first time. Yeah i love the design. I think it's really unique. A middle worried that you know. It's like form over function in some way. Because i mean at this price point. What's the price anyway. Do we know eleven hundred pounds or twelve hundred years this price. That's fine but i like so gonna be a thousand like it's about the same as the next to last year pros last year. But he's a little bit cheaper but yeah that over thousand dollar price point. I'm okay with the crazy. You know wizards type approach to making the thing with thousands of hours of manufacturing time. Whatever it might be. I think it looks really cool. I've got the kind of grayish color. One agree dark rate lack. I don't know what color that is. But it's looking at a mirror. The whole thing is one piece. It's very cool. My my thing is that i'm really happy. They added wireless charging. That was the thing that i wanted to make a final to pro my daily driver austere and it up with of course oneplus eight pro which is count like again you know the oneplus nine pro is going to be a dead ringer of this phone. So no surprise there like in many ways so the reason i couldn't do it because what trudging was missing. Now that's been remedied by battery life. I haven't tested yet. So i don't know but it might be a result of trying to run everything at one twenty hertz and quad hd. I feel that. If i have to compromise somewhere it's resolution usually my eight pro oneplus a prior run at ten eighty p right and probably run the oneplus nine pro and switched to it at ten pm. Pretty convinced. i'm going to switch to it so wait you're of all the phones that you've used including the galaxy s twenty one. You're still using the eight pro. Is your daily driver. Oh yeah no. Don't i don't want to switch to off and i have so many ops to reinstall and set up a one once a year thing and i have to pick wisely right last year. I decided that i was going to wait. For the pixel five and so i hung hoed with the pixel forty or whatever four acceler my pocket for a while and then i realized that the pixel five was giving giving me what i want and the four or five g was actually the better form but didn't have wireless charging in my opinion so then i went said. I need to make a decision. So i went eight pro and the reason for that is i want i want wanna pixel essentially but i wanna flagship right. So what's the closest you can get to that. You can't get a flagship from google anymore. Anyway i digress but back to the quickey unfortunately have just to go as soon but i feel that for me. What surprised me. The most is the telephone okay. I couldn't get numbers on this. Is it three x two x two x optical and switch to x optical with five x figs. Zoom whatever hybrid. That's hybrid probably looks okay at five x hybrid but probably know better than one hundred eight megapixel. That's trying to do five x kinda like the eleven right. Yeah these over the past It's just fine. I is is fine of five but go beyond five. It's a bit yeah. We had a paris copa. Like five x right. That was different from the oneplus. Eight pro which only had like three x telephoto. So i think the teleph- the the lack of the telephoto disappearing from almost everyone's phones except for you know an iphone doesn't really count because there's only two axe to me. Anything that's to excellence doesn't count. It has to be three more. And ideally it needs to have two of them like the s twenty one ultra or the. We p forty pro plus. Which was my darling camera phone last year. Despite the lack of gm's so you see. That's the reason. Part of the reason daniel that i went with the pro because i knew that if i needed a better camera just pull out a weiwei. P forty plus and carry that with me right and so so then. I guess the party question that i would ask is what would it take for the financial three pro to be your daily driver over the nine. The oneplus nine pro. Because they are so similar to things. And i want that i feel. Actually this might take away from this. Phone is that oppo is holding back for an ultra version. Yes that was my conspiracy theories. Well i feel like we're like because everybody's doing more than a pro. Now i feel that apple is exploring that ultra premium end. And he's gonna come out with a special edition of this phone. That will have a proper periscope telephoto. But what would make me switch would be more see right now. Could live with a two x telephoto. If it's any good. I don't know off to try it but i think for me. It's five g support simply. Because i'm on t. mobile in the us and it's actually beneficial in terms of network coverage for me it's not really beneficial terms of speed by re does give me slightly better performance in some fringe situations and that would be my big. My big request bought the other thing. That i'm interested intrigued. Bob because i haven't really had chance to tessies. Cameras yet. Is their choice of using the two identical fifty megapixel. I am seven six six sensors on the ultrawide and the main to get perfect color. Matching 'cause how's that worked out for you guys so interesting thing. That is the you in theory. That is what happens. But then you have the ai thing that's turned on. Which can you run. I'm not sure by default but if you use it You know it's very useful things in some situations but if you use it then you can get radically different looking switching between the two lenses if you don't have the tent on yet is obviously much closer as a parting thought. I have a feeling that while last year's apple finds pro would have been my choice for that time period of the year that first half of the year until the no twenty ultra came out. Which was my darling phone of the fall. But i switched to it because i was lazy. And of course he has twenty ultra. now is a pretty solid choice for photography. I think until until then until the eight pro last year the findings to pro choice other than wireless charging and five jeep but this year. I'm much more convinced that all want the oneplus nine pro. That's your segue as i'm leaving because for me. The one plus nine pro. F- i don't know all of the details yet but that hassle partnership has me intrigued and more importantly i know it's going to support all the bands properly in the us. And it's going to have wireless charging which i need and it's going to be a slightly smaller phone. I think this year which. I'm very happy about because the eight cross a freaking monster of a beast. It's too big for me over there. So i think the x three profiles held back to me somehow. Apple is i can know what apple can do and be group and this is very good by this. This aversion to telephoto in chinese phones right now xiaomi's doing it too is driving me nuts. I don't get it i want all of it. I don't care about microscope. it's cool. I don't care about a macro because an ultra wide can do macro like it is on this phone. It is on one plus pro phones
Trial of Derek Chauvin, charged in George Floyd's death, begins with jury selection
"Selection continues today in Minneapolis in the trial of Derek Children. Former police officer accused of killing George Floyd by kneeling on his neck defense attorney Eric Nelson asking a potential juror about his first impressions when he saw the video of Floyd's arrest. The jurors said he didn't think Floyd deserved to die but also said he would wait all evidence in the case. It's fair to say you've formed some opinions about the case. Yes, a bit again watching a video. Obviously you have an opinion when you watch it, and I tried to show that as best I could in the questionnaire. And I guess what I'm questioning is is that you understand that That's just one piece of potential evidence. In this case. Yes, absolutely.
Harry and Meghan detail royal struggles, from discussions of baby's skin tone to suicidal thoughts
"Oh what an interview. Harry and meghan shocked everyone last night during their explosive. Sit down with oprah winfrey and the royal family may never be the same again. I'm going to try not to yell like crazy. Because i've been screaming all morning ever since i watched this last night. There is so much to discuss. We head to begin our top royals. Melanie bromley to the show. As oh my gosh i. It's almost like we don't even know where to begin. So let's do this before we dive. And let's take a look at the top bombshells of the night who could be given a title and also concerns and conversations about how dark skinned might be when he's born. What here's a conversation with you. With harry about how dark your baby is going to be. Potentially and what that would mean or look like conversation. I'm never going to shy. But at the time the time it was oak ridge. I respect sharks. Can you tell us what the question was. I'm not comfortable with sharing. Is he taking your calls. Now is a lot of work through that. I feel really let down. Because he's been through something similar. I always love him. But there's a lot of the top. I just had that conversation with harry. I don't want to be alive anymore. Yeah it was like these. Are the thoughts. That i'm having in the middle of the night. That are very clear. And i'm scared because this is very real. Did you make kate cry now. So where did that come from. It was a really hard week of the wedding and she was upset about something but she owned it and she apologize and flowers and a note apologizing. There's this invisible. What's what's what's termed or referred to as the invisible contracts behind closed doors between the institution and the tabloids if you as a family member a willing to wine dine and give access to these reporters than you will get better press. I think there's a reason that these tabloids have holiday parties at the palace. Okay now before we get into everything. We need to lease comment. That this part. The palace has not commented on the interview. Okay lots of mixed feelings about this. Where do we start. Let's do this first impressions now first impression. My impression is that this is the most damaging interview that we've ever seen about the royal family if you thought diana's interview in nineteen thousand nine hundred was bad that was just the accusation or talking about infidelity. This is way bigger. Somebody just blew up the role side. Yes who would think oprah tyler. Perry could expose the monarchy. I thought she was ready. She was ready ready. This has been a two year plus experience for them and they finally got to tell their side of the story because as we heard she was silenced. She said she was silence. My was literally. I was just screaming at least with melissa heard it. I was like screaming. I just was in shock. I i thought she was gonna take off the gloves and do a fight but no no no. She had those gloves on. She was like. I don't know this phrase phrases that she dropped every bombshell that she possibly could have and it was one after another we kept saying like. That's the biggest. I mean we were just riveting. This is going to go down in history with all the other ones. I mean we're talking race. We talking family problems. Everything i was like. This is so good. Okay back to you how to do exactly the same. It was so shocking. Every single thing that came out of her mouth and you have to bear in mind. The royal family exists on this idea of mystery. We know a little bit about what's going on behind palace who we don't know everything. What meghan and harry yesterday to people who were in the inner sack who did is that exposed the lot they said. This is no fairytale. this is not what you've ever thought it was. This was awful. It was like being in a

Over The Dystopia
"More big fan of science fiction right and who's happened and science fiction has is not about the future. It's about the now through different lens. And i get very frustrated with a lot of distance stories. You know the stories that are bout was miserable. The end times it's going to be this So when i look at the world. I see a lot of problems. You see a lot of harshness. Souci lot of this union and and disorder in distress. And and i thought often about the fact we don't have community places to have real exchanges and i've insert myself into those into those conversations. You know where. I don't agree with what they're saying. But i try to find ways sometimes to to sort of say. Hey i here. You're saying book. Let's actually have a dialogue about. Let's let's find some commonality and so far. I've walked away generally unscathed you know. There's there's usually resistance what are you doing. Why bother me but if you approach it the right way you actually find. Maybe not agreement at the dinner. You haven't swayed somebody else over but you've actually found a place to have a conversation and maybe you're nodding your head a little bit about what they're saying and maybe they're actually nodding in return which we don't get otherwise we've lost so many of these and replace them with memes and news feeds and mistakenly think that those actually activate that commonality at first impression of his resume it can be assumed. He's a man driven by list of temporal accomplishments. Yet as he shares of who he is and as we take the chapters of his introduction. It's easy to see the humility that resides within him with the mind that but what's to come thinker. He not only ponders of the world in which we're living but imagines the world where walking into he recalls. Simple moment years ago when i work more directly and in comic books and and i would get invited to stores signings autograph sessions instead of things and i got invited to this one in west texas think it was west texas this texas definitely somewhere texas big place and and you know was all full of myself and went to the store and nobody showed. Nobody like nobody cared. That i was there so i sat there for hours. Stacks of whatever it was assigned except for this one. Kit showed up and young. He had a couple of stories and maybe illustrations he had done. And i had nothing else to do so i just talked to the kid. Most of the day gave him pointers joked with them. This that and the other thing didn't think twice about it. And i had a driver that day because it was so far away west texas. The driver was sitting there that whole time. And we got back in the car at the end of the day and the driver turned to me. And i wasn't thinking about any of this and he said that kid will never forget this day for the rest of his life and as a pretty talking about you know he was making the point the fact i had given that kid attention and encouraged his doing but i had an intended. It wasn't like i was leaning into it but sometimes it's those at those things that maybe are just small gestures. You don't even think about but they they can make a hopefully they do make an impotent and they add up over time as opposed to well. I'm gonna do this big thing and speak programs big. Whenever baby steps and commonality he suggests speaks of how small or large the wakes of even our smallest gestures can radiate asks us to not get so caught up in our own accomplishments disappointments that we don't take time to truly see those around us. Perhaps he is gently challenging us giving us reason to look over the walls of a plausible dystopia future and as he does he releases. Each of us sincerely consider the links that bind us. I think that there's an inherent need for connection. And you owe it to yourself to discover that and if you can do that on your own through introspection or finding a philosophy finding a faith some type of therapy. If that's what's necessary cracked the code on yourself at no matter what point or stage you on your life. Well i'm fifty. whatever. I'm i'm past the point of doing that or i'm twenty. I'll still figure it out on my own home. Take the time to figure it out. You owe it to yourself and it's okay to be selfish in that way being separate is not worth it. Yes he has achieved a degree of success yet. When he speaks of his priorities he mentions no quest for wealth even admits his work is secondary to what he feels most important simply. His role was a loving father as a caring husband as a good friend and as a contributing citizen to this world in which we share so it is as we take a pause to absorb the voice of today's stranger. Now friend dan. My we open our hearts minds and actions pass any barriers. That just might be of our own making back to dan. I would say ask the person next to you. What matters to the most because when you understand that about somebody else you see yourself more clearly and then you. You understand them better. I think if we understand that and the answer is honest if we listen we truly listen. Go beyond the go beyond. I can't understand that now. There are all these factors these burdens that we carry. And it's hard to think about the other and not just within yourself. And i think every one of us can find something relatable and that's what we should aspire to
Brands On Brands On Brands
What should I call my podcast?
"Today's topic is how to name your podcasts. Or how to name your show. We're focused on podcasting here. Because i know a lot of the listeners are in that space but it could work for anyone. That's creating a show out there and what's important. Today this is a solo show. We are diving deep on this topic. And what i want you guys to take away from. This is your podcast name or your show name his first impression. It's your first impression. Is the first impression your audience is going to get of your show. So i think they're going to hear that they're going to see when deciding if this show is for them. If the built is what they are looking for today it contributes to your find ability within podcast players within the show the places where shows are housed and also across the web. It determines your ability. Because if you're using the wrong words to describe your show and people don't know about your show then they're not gonna find us. We're gonna talk about that. And also your show name is one of the most important decisions you can make when getting started because it contributes to your identity. It's what you become known for. So don't take those decisions lightly. Listen up today as we dive into it. S all right. Let's get started by the way for my new listeners. Out there if you guys are interested in diving into your content and making more of it. Not just creating but repurposing i do wanna mention. I have a quick free resource for you is how to convert your one hour of content into one month of content for all the podcasters in content creators out. There have created a step by step guide. Just for you all about repurposing content. You can download it now. At my free resources page at brands on brands dot com slash resources. Go check that out all right. Let's get going so category and keywords where we're going to start you're talking about how to name your podcast. You always should be starting with the macro view of your category and your keywords so thinking about it this way if you wanna understand your category. It's really figuring out. Which box do you fall in and apple. Podcasts has a categorization for you. They've already done all the work to figure out. What are the main buckets of information that people tend to look for and they put them into boxes for you. Categories like business health finance. They're all there already and you pick which bucket you wanna play in because yes most of our shows can be put into multiple buckets. But when someone's actually looking for your content. If they were to go on a category search where would they start thinking about that and pick something and once you've picked that category decide okay within that. Is there a subcategory that would fall into like within business. My shows within marketing. That is a subcategory of business. There's many subcategories of business entrepreneurship is a big one for podcast. So there's a whole sub category of that but it all resides within business. so pick those subcategories. And why is this important for figuring out the name of your podcast because when you know where you are heading then you know how to get there right so if my category is marketing within business i now have to figure out. What are the words that i can use to describe my show that helped define it within this category. So think about it. As when you've isolated your subcategory say it was marketing for me. How do you fit into that space. What's your niche within that category as you've identified that you can build it into the name of your show as well so if your show is all about facebook ads within marketing you can use the word facebook ads in your title a wooded. Just call it. The facebook ads show. You can get more creative with that. And we'll talk about that later but the main keyword should be included somewhere in the title. And you can either have it as part of the main title or as the subtitle so for me. My show is called brands on brands. Right pretty vague. But at least you know. It's in the marketing category in that branding part of the market categories. I've slightly niche down. But if you go a step further. I've subtitled it not just brands on brands. It's brands on brands dash personal branding and content marketing. Why is that important. It's important because now if someone is specifically looking not for any kinda granny but for personal branding for branding. That builds their own self or they are the business. It's the business of them. Their name matters. They might type in the word. The keyword personal branding and guess what pops up to the top my show because i've listed in the title and also in the descriptions. That's what's important so you can't just throw out a vague name like john talks today or john. Talks live or john's news because that is not going to help people find you. You know maybe every monday you go live and you're like it's mondays with john. That's fine but no one's going to type in john. No one's gonna type in monday. No one's gonna find you because of that but if you call it mondays with john dash facebook ads and funnels now. You are helping the algorithm. You're helping these search tool tell the world what the show's about that matters to miss that. Step then you're not taking advantage of the functionality of searches bills into these tools. And not just the podcast tools all of the tools. The same thing works for google search when on your website these titles will carry over to the blogs that you create. That'll carry over to the youtube. Shows that you create or the outputs into videos and it all starts with the name of your show so have to get those keywords built into your your name. The second thing to help you guys go a little further. Because i know it's hard to pick a name like what i can still kind of vague just my name and facebook ads. Says that's not a very specific. Okay so let's get deeper the second thing you can do step. One was categories and keywords thinking about those things number two is figuring out what you stand for. And i'm going to call this your line in the sand. That's not the only one that calls this. But that's what we're gonna call today your line and so on and keywords and number two your line in the sand think about what you believe in that determines how you will own your corner. Your niche right. So for me. I started shows off by saying i believe the building a brand that matters today is the only way to thrive. I think your brand has to matter. You have to have some kind of connective tissues engaging experience you have to touch each person individually and say. Hey what is it that you need. How can i help you. That's how i think you build a brand one person at a time when experience at a time. That's my corner so for you you have to determine what is it that you believe in that. Is what your audience needs to succeed or to benefit from this show. What is your approach to telling these stories and to finding the next level for your audience
Casting Actors Cast
How to Make a Slate Great
"Know that slates are used in just about every audition situation. You can imagine voiceover self tape. Auditions live meetings live meetings on zoom and also in person soon. Hopefully we're going to get back to you coming into a room and actually auditioning with other people in the room. Wouldn't that be exciting. So when we talk about slating. I simply mean is when you introduce yourself when you introduce the material you are about to audition with you are asked to slate. Oftentimes it's just leading your name. Sometimes they ask you to slate your name and if you have an agent you would mention your agent many times. They'll ask you to slate your name the role you're auditioning for the project your auditioning for and your height so several different requests can be made in a slate but let's go back to the history of the slate just a little brief history not to bore you with this but i think it's just really fascinating and that is in the age of the silent movies. It was really important because the slate really became the way in which you coordinated the sound with the film in other words the film was shot separately and then the sound was recorded separately so they needed a way in which to synchronize the site the visual with the sound so they took a piece of slate and they put a little clapperboard under it now. I'm sure you've probably seen this right. But then they put the name of the scene and titled the scene so it could be seen on film but then they had this little clapper at the bottom of this piece of slate. And they used chock. Well that's why it's called a slate today so they would slap that act one scene one take one snap. So that's the history of the slate over the years. The slate now is used as a cataloging device. That means that we wanna make sure we've got the image of the actor connected with the actor's name so we don't wanna get that mixed up so that's all it is now. It's just a cataloging device. Now if we get a video submission and we have your slate there. We know that we're looking at the right persons audition so it's not that hard but you know what is that slate is really. I think important to understand what they're used for today and how they can affect your work. Well they're used for today. As i said like a cataloging device in voice over work. It's making sure that they have the person connected to the audition but also it's really interesting that the slate for film and television is also becoming a way in which we get a first impression about you. We get information about you before the actual audition you might be asking yourself. Why is that important. Well it's important only because that first impression can be very very valuable right. You can get a lot of information. Just think about when you're meeting somebody for the first time in person. Let's talk about before covid right and you're being introduced to somebody that you're looking forward to meeting high. I am and you're shaking a hand and it's really a moment in time in which you can establish your presence and make an impression on the person that you are meeting. That's what a slate can do today. Now there are a couple of rules about doing slates. And i want to go over a few of them in each of these different areas. First of all let's talk about voice over slates. I this question occasionally but i wanna make it really clear. Do not ever slate in character in other words. If you're doing an animated voice or a cartoon voice or you're doing a very out there kind of character voice. It is neither funny nor useful for us to hear you in character so please make sure that you don't slate in character. The second thing you want to
GM Has a New Logo
"Me set this up for everybody. General motors has a new logo. And it's similar to the old logo. It's still a square box. It has the letters g and m on it. it has 'em on it For those on youtube. Mr bruce's just throwing it up here on our screen we can see. It's it's it's it's it's a rebrand right so the debate going on in the motor one dot com universe is whether this is a good thing a bad thing ridiculous thing a terrible move a smart move. Let me give you a little bit. More background I don't really mind this. Rebrand that much but i also come from a marketing background. I had a marketing career. Long before i went time into journalism. So i i think maybe i get a slightly different viewpoint of the rebranding process and why companies tend to do it But john why don't you lead off because that's the reason you're here john is. John is the one that opposes my viewpoint and wait one second here. I get to play referee here. I get the. I'm calling the balls and strikes if someone starts taking too long. I get veto power. Because my thing is i have a completely different opinion. That both of you. That i will express at the end but comes up in. This discussion of re brands is that we've been seeing a lot of them a lot of the just in the past year i am going to share an image with you guys Is right now of three of them. What we say so. Volkswagen simplifies their emblem. Bmw's simplifies their Nissan simplifies their envelope. All of this has happened in the past year and there are other examples that i can pull up. There's maserati there is a mazda. Oh so this has kind of been bubbling up and then this. Gm one came up and chris in john in our motor one chat kind of started going at things and so i wanna give them the opportunity both to air their feelings about this badge and then when they're done i will come in at the end and give my opinion which is barely different from both pairs. So i'm gonna pop up an image of the gm badge. Actually i the they are going to tell you how they feel about the emmett. Mr neff i yield the floor to the distinguished gentleman. Here the image you popped up the gm the new gm logo Bruce was black and white. It's forgiving that is i would say the best version of the logo. Oh their degree. There's the gradient one which i think adds a level of ridiculousness to the logo so For those not viewing on youtube it is this new. Gm logo with a gradient. That goes from aquamarine blue into like the traditional jam. Blew into another blue All right so my views on this level. When i see it my first impression is that it is juvenile. That's the word. I used that chris and i were arguing over in our chat. I say juvenile. Because i think it looks like Like gm created an iphone app and this was the icon for it Or you know this is something a this looks like the The icon for new adobe software next to your photo shop and your illustrator It's trying to look Hi tack and and Not bleeding edge but more like you know. I'm part of the software revolution Which is true. That's happening in cars. Software and computing power is growing exponentially more important Let me take a note of that really quick. You said it's true. Sure sure that is granted and of course another reason that that the juvenile comes to mind as they went from two capital letters Which is proper grammar for It's an acronym general motors. You know and they went to to lower case letters so that has a juvenile edge to it to me This gradient is ridiculous and a first year. Art student would probably create that in photoshop And some people say like it's supposed to evoke a plug. And i guess i guess that's supposed to be negative space of the m and the underline of the m. Maybe i don't know. I i don't really see i don't get that as a strong message. from the logo. Now when i say it's bad. Like when i say it's bad like i don't think it's the worst thing in the world My perspective is that. If if i were if i were running the company. Or if i were an executive in the boardroom that day i would raise my hand and said we need to rethink this. This is not what we wanna do. that said i don't think logo bruins gm. I don't think. I don't th- i actually don't think logos and names of companies have that much power especially if your product is good. Your product is good. It can overcome a logo or or a bad name. And i say that having worked at a couple of websites that had ridiculous bad names and we're still successful because they were just good websites and people look past the name and just you know they thought of the brand of the site as as what the product is and the name took came on Took on a new meaning. And i think this logo could be the same way you know if gm succeeds in its easy. Revolution will probably look at the logo. with you know in a completely different way than we do today when gm's future plans are all promises and vaporware right now
