"Relationships yes and before we get to the relationships heart what i wanna talk to you about. You have worked with some very notable clients to really transform their lives accessible people Not sometimes when you have enormous amount of success obviously that comes from hard work. Majority of the time And you are. You know so focused in what you have to accomplish and and you have to be diligent szechuan that you completely forget about your personal relationships crimes whether you're already married maybe maybe didn't even have the time to really focus on meeting. Somebody end get married like there's a lot of success with people who are in their late twenties will never been married and don't have children and all of a sudden they haven't epiphany in wake up like oh my goodness oh my god. I'm almost fifty years old than i don't even have a family. I don't have kids. You know what am i gonna do now you know. How do i go about this because now wanna have kids. You have today so there's a whole dynamic around this right so you could be the most intelligent person in less accessible person. But that doesn't mean that you have the support and the knowledge you need in order to facilitate certain other aspects of your life. True doesn't mean that you're not capable is just know you've been asleep for a little while rates newest true. Wake that in and show you how. It's done the same way that somebody could be married for thirty years and you know. Maybe they've grown apart and they find themselves in this whole new realm as dating which is absolutely ridiculous these days in the end So how do you. How do you come from that old school mentality and try to step into this modern way of dedi. You're making negatives weight is in your meek you really making a good point because the whole new way digital dating is really kind of scary. There's a lot of how. Can i put this predators controls on some of these dating sites. Some of them are not there to really create a healthy long-term relationship there for other purposes. And if you really wanting to find someone that fits you and your personality and you're gonna establish a really healthy life together. You need something a lot more. Concrete more substantial. And here's where you come in. Tell us about this to. It's while it's all about perspective and experience in either. This is where i stay and help you find it. The right way You know there's certain rules that apply in some situations. Certain rules don't apply but as long as you follow suit with integrity and watch it Everything will line up and sometimes just the learning curve you know. Technology thing is really by design. It is by design. Wait you said there's just one really key word that holds true to every part of someone's life and that was integrity absolute with yourself and others and that is one of the hardest things to find because it's so easy to just fall off your word right. Yes but the people who choose to live by that if they really reap the benefits of with universe. Brace it really. That's that's a really powerful statement. Because i wanna just state it as well because this sometimes you really need to say things out loud in bring those to fruition just through statements alone but if you live by integrity you will reap the benefits. It's one of the biggest things i'd hear now from people in what's that people don't eat their word in so many areas. I'm losing just the sound a little bit. can you hear me. Okay there we go yes okay so Yeah a lot of people have an issue with word. People make promises they don't keep they dismiss their promises so easily you know and this is how people condition each other to trust or not trust in. That's why trust yes hard to find right. Yes it is very much so badly that's trust is one of the biggest obstacles for people and all it only comes from well. It comes from their Their mentality as we call it script in phone. We're a little child or locate week. we'd start. We inherited the script while they just decide. Because this happened that this is the way it is. It doesn't mean that is right way. yes exactly. Can we live by the script over and over and over again right. Yes right so And then if you take that into like they will relationship on tax our experiences dictate. How how our mind works in what. Our expectations are gonna be How much lack of trust we're gonna have because we've been disappointed over and over and over will been conditioned by this so now is to be disappointed. This is where it's so hard to trust right until somebody shows you a different way of thinking so somebody has to if you don't rip south reflect you're not gonna find this out you're not gonna step outside of your box to look further you're not gonna find out miki live your whole life late this that is so true. This is what i tried to do. I tried to you know. I people should things with me and i try opened the door for them to at least look. The hallway see went the how other things actually do exist. And why why the way you are and now. Let's try to undo all that because abc at happened and that condition view to think and feel this way. Why let's just say it happened like this. How would you be feeling. Today is a lot to it. Yeah there is a lot to it. But one of the things that i taught on is rebuilding trust and you do this very very well. And you bring it into the entire person's life in especially when it comes to relationships because oftentimes when we use the word relationship we think of that being just an immediate relationship is far as like dating or marriage but relationships extend to our parents. Our children are co workers people out in the community and so if there's an issue with trust in a relationship it applies to many people and often. We don't see that and this is why it's so necessary to do like what you're doing in rebuild the trust so that it's not a blanket viewpoint right and it's not is not something that happens like okay. I'm going to have trust tomorrow. It's time and.

"Front end l. It's a it's sort of like haskell but it compiles down into java script and it's like a heavy heavy type system so it's very it helps you in many ways to write very correct code. But what i found with that was that slowed me way down because so many things where it's like if i could just use javascript. It would be so fast and so easy. Like i was having to rebuild a bunch of stuff. There wasn't a huge library ecosystem in so i determined like i enjoyed my time in elm but it was also mistake for a first version of a product like he was way too way too heavy and i didn't know well. Maybe if i was more proficient in it would have been a better choice but for an mvp. Not not a good idea circumstances. So i basically focused a lot of my energy into kind of getting the front experience dialed in. I picked a library to use for the calendar interface and invested a ton of time into that and everything else in the back end was pretty pretty simple to start. It was like what are the key flows of people need to be able to. You need to be able to send a link to somebody showing interface. That person needs to be able to click. Click time slot and fill in their email address and click schedule. And then it needs to create creighton event. On google calendar i determine google calendar was like what probably eighty percent of people in my immediate reach using. So it's like focus on that one integration and that kind of end to end experience. And as soon as i could do that. I basically bob during this time while i was building the mvp was also having kind of in constant communication with customers. So i had a landing page up. I had kind of the value proposition of it. Thrown out there in the world and now the sort of talking publicly about this sharing it on twitter and kind of building up a list of people who were interested in so i was trying to have regular conversations with those folks to figure out. What do they really care about. What what would it take for them to get switched over and with as with most mvp kind of have to ship it and invite people in earlier than you're comfortable with. Which is definitely what. I what i push myself to do this time around. He said he focused on the ui aspect Was there anything that helps you build that faster to use anything like tailwind or any sort of you know libraries. They're re just doing it all custom. Yeah i'm a big big fan of tail end. I've been using tail in for a couple of years and to me. It just feels like by and large the most productive front environment. That i've ever worked with so i kind of i've always enjoyed co- going straight from like sketches in a notebook straight into the final medium in html. I don't usually enjoy going through. Sketch sigma because it just feels like. I'm putting a lot of effort into high fidelity designs Translate that into into something else and for me switching over to tailwind when i started playing with it a couple years ago it was really kind of an eye opening Eye opening experience and and also purchased tail in. Ui and my goal has been to like. I don't savvy. Hilda feel like a completely stock p- redesigned app. Like i wanted to have kind of a custom custom field with zone personality. But i've definitely harvested a lot out of telling you i especially for like things like form elements and the way you know kind of the the very native feeling way that that text inputs work and stuff like that So that's been a really helpful resource to just not have to reinvent all that stuff just kind of pull things out of their component library so from there you got your. Mvp got your core set of features. You're staying close to the market. You're talking to people. How did you progress the product from their mature in. And how did you build a road map and decide okay. This is the next most important thing to build after shipping. The mvp got got you know real world users using the product and soon as one of the nice things about this product as soon as people started using it it started like being shared with other people implicitly because at the bottom of every scheduling link says scheduling by savvy. Cal so sort of has this viral loop component building. That's how i heard about it. Yeah right it's it's after studying kind of how Other tools in this space have grown like that is they usually site that as the number one kind of growth lever for them and so kind of my. I feel like my my goal with with on the marketing front is to just provide enough like kindling for that fire and get you know. Do put my effort into getting more people using the product but ultimately like once you have kind of a critical mass the hope is that it will sort of have this kind of self spreading nature to it and let us sort of kicked into a certain degree. It's it's difficult to track exactly because attribution has never been harder in especially in a world where we're were increasingly becoming concerned about privacy digital privacy and not like being aggressively tracked and cookies and stuff so it's pretty difficult to track user journeys these days but now we have to fall back on qualitative data for that kind of asking people anecdotally. Like how'd you hear about us and stuff like that so So yeah so you know. Kind of the products started started off slowly inviting people from from the launch list. Who are interested in using it and basically tried to go through. That whole process was to make sure. I was still learning so as soon as it felt like learning slowing down. I knew it was time to invite more people and and so gradually made it through the list and by the time i hit was early september. I made that list. And i knew it was time to like Just kind of open it up to to the world and and let anyone who wants to come to the website. Sign up to do that and and that was good. Like i think one thing i did do was held off on like the big big splash launch for a couple of months after opening it up because there were definitely use cases that i hadn't thought of or just things that that surfaced as important features to build that obviously didn't make it into the mvp because not everything can and that was really helpful thing to do to not lake. Go try to present this thing to the world before i have like a nice solid base of users Already using the product and so we did like a did a product launch in january. And that's kind of really gave us a a solid Introduction to the world and a nice like base of mr. and. I think you know your mileage vary. Everyone's mileage varies with with product for a lot of products. It's not a great launching place for this when it happened to be. I think because it's sort of a sort of a horizontal tool sort of generic a lot of people can can use it and so it kind of fit well with the product on audience but it definitely served me well to kind of wait. Wait a couple of months after technically going public Before before launching it on there. So you're taking on county right. Tell tell me a little bit about that And how you wanted to. What what Gave you the drive to take on county Because i can't wait and honestly a little embarrassed. I haven't tried the tool yet now use county. I can't wait to go try it now will. So what what gave you that dr. Do it's interesting that something. I've observed about technology companies. Is you know they most of them start out as a kind of classic star up where you you build your mvp and you're really scrappy and you have a really small team building it. Maybe raise some funding in this case. I think county doesn't have a traditional venture capital right. And so you're kind of the the hot new cool kid on the block kind of upsetting the older guard of tools right and and so you kind of get your traction early and then you solidify whatever place you're going to the market you kind of you kind of achieve that. In the case of callan li they have sort of solidified a pretty a pretty solid.

"Around with the beam. The equipment overall tinkering with making the perfect after collecting dust in his notebook in the list of markets which he knew well he decided to venture forward to make a better calendar scheduling work tool based on his anxiety using this type of product and his desire to level up the status quo. This is the creation story of savvy cow just having a scheduling tool listeners. May be familiar with tools. like callan. lee is kind of the big the big behemoth this space. Basically it helps you be able to send a scheduling link to another person. That represents times that you're available to meet and then the other person can use interface to do select time and then puts a calendar invite on everyone's calender and maybe if you're like doing it over zoom it'll spin up a zoom meeting and attach that so that there's a place to meet. I've kind of been familiar with this this type of tool for a while. So i kind of mentioned this already but drip was. The company spent much of the last decade building and it was marketing automation software. And one of the first integrations that we built was basically Integration with callan lead. That allowed someone to send a scheduling link safer like a product komo or something and then when someone booked time it would send an event over to drip and put that on their profile and then you could trigger different automations based off with that so kind of automating that workflow around around scheduling and so. It's kind of familiar with this this type of tool. I've used it a bunch for customer interviews and Just meeting with with other partners and investors or whatever so it's sort of been floating around idea notebooks about lake. I an exercise that i regularly do when. I'm when i'm thinking about you know what what type of projects to be working on. I kind of keep these running lists of tools that have been in my tool chain that i kind of understand i understand that the market the type of people that use them and so this one had been in my notebook for awhile and basically i kind of recognize some interesting Interesting things dynamics around this type of product. The big ones being bad. I always had a ton of anxiety. When i was going to use a scheduling tool because as maker. I'm i care a lot about keeping my calendar pretty protected. You know so. If i'm going to send something that gives someone a window into when i'm available to meet. I'm always very hesitant. Like are they going to. Potentially you know. Drop a meeting right in the middle of my day and caused that to be an unproductive day. Or if i'm like trying to do a whole round of calls people send like i e mail out a link because this is going to completely rent my calendar and that's always it's sort of a. It's a difficult problem to solve. Because it's like you can only do so much if you're gonna if you're going to offer time to somebody they're going to pick a time and it's going to potentially be bad but i feel like can do a better job of making someone like me feel better about being able to send out a link and so that was kind of one problem. Second problem was that. There's this weird dance. That always happens where people feel hesitant to send them some people built really offended and you send a scheduling lean place. Oh you're putting the work on me you're gonna make me work with your system to find a time and so usually usually you find that like the person who's in the his more in the making the ask type of position you never gets to send a scheduling link and i get it like there's etiquette and there's kind of these like the art of making a a good ask of somebody in a way. That feels respectful. But i think i was like i feel like a product can do a better job of making this feel more collaborative so that it's not like i'm pushing work on your plate. It's just that here's a place for us to collaborate together to find time and so a couple of these like high level concepts floating around. Where i'm like i feel like i can. I can really invest some time and energy into this and actually do better like level at the status quo over what existing tools on the market are doing. Let's jump into the mvp. So tell me about the first version of savvy cal that you built how long it took to build and what sort of tools you use to bring it to life. I started working on it. In around march of twenty twenty. And then i think onboard my first customers in june or july so it was just a couple of months and that was one of my goals with this was to try to keep that. Keep that window of time as short as possible. I recently worked on some projects. Where took me about nine months to get something potentially usable and that was just. That was painfully long. I was not willing to do that this time around. So i ended up going with a framework that i hadn't. I've been working with for a couple of years. But i hadn't actually built like a full scale. Production product in. I'm the main product is written in elixir. And i spent a drip was a ruby on rails application monolith So pretty just writing a ton of ruby code for that. And i feel like to me. Understanding kind of how elixir came about as a language. It's sort of. I think it sort of came out of lake jobs. Abrahim who was on the rails core team and saw all the ways that like ruby on rails was good and also like how you had to constantly fight against the language and there are a lot of efficiency problems performance issues that you could work around you can always throw more money more hardware at it. But like i felt. I feel like elixir as kind of a response to that. So like taking the good parts of ruby and the nicest and applying them to a functional paradigm built on erling so it's just inherently more performance and built for like perelman high scale. And even though i don't necessarily need the high scale part of it like i'm very much in the camp of lake you don't need to prematurely optimize or pick things that can go google scale or something like that. It's still help that. Like i can still power savvy cal on one heroic dino right now and it handles any kind of currency i've thrown at it so far it sounds like a champ so i'm pretty happy with that choice. Okay with any. Mvp you gotta make certain decisions and trade-offs about okay. I'm going to accept this technical debt. Or i'm gonna cut this feature. Tell me about some of those decisions and trade offs. You had to make the savvy. Callan how you coped with them. So i i kind of i had tried to nail down. The scope is tight as i could. Because you know you're trying to get this out in a reasonable amount of time and not spend time on things where they're potentially don't matter right so so i've always been a believer that like an mvp should be. Ideally it should be still the kernel of a product that you can keep building on and not a throw away So that was one of my one of my goals was to make this a foundation for a product need to build on and not have to start over from scratch once. I validate that. It's that the market wants it And so you know. Picking begging technology like elixir. That i knew. I wanted to build on and then i determined like the big big areas of differentiation that i wanted to focus on i was making the interface. Fill more collaborative and more like a calendar and so i spent a lot of time kind of working on the front end piece of it. Actually just front end is is a lot of react. But it's actually a. It's actually a monolithic application. So i have the option to server side render pages where it's just like a basic form or something and then on on the pages where i needed to be more highly interactive than basically the entire pages just a reactive component. And so i kind of gave myself like this permission to not Not over engineer. Things for for the the purist solution I've made that mistake in the past. Where like the previous project before. This was a protocol level. And i wanted to build the whole.

"I don't think would have happened if he wasn't an openly gay coach The other stories that always strike with me jordan especially given all the politics around this is the stories of trans athletes. We tell so many stories of young trans athletes who are coming out and they just want play like else and there's a wadded. I think fair debate to be had out olympic level and professional levels when you're getting into meddling in physical advantages there. Certainly i think a lot to be said there but just the total issue of young trans people who are coming out in dealing with the struggle in the abuse sports as respite in a way to let free and let loose and be themselves and be other kids like. That's what they wanna do. And that's an issue. That of course has been around for many years but now personally covering it over the last year and a half. I've really become quite. You're going to have a lot of stuff to cover with title nine arguments and with all kinds of things. I mean from the emotional the cultural to the to the legal. It's going to be a very interesting ride as you continue to follow that That story now. You're on a microphone talking to me. And i'm on a microphone. What about podcasting. Yes so. I do host a podcast without sports every week. And it's it's a different kind of podcasts for me because it's podcast where i really like. You're doing now. What the guests have the floor Every week i interviewed sometimes last week. It was fallon. Fox is a retired out. Transgender mixed martial arts fighter. Who's dealt with a lot of prejudice discrimination in her career. That's a story. I'm so interested in finding out about a couple of weeks ago. I spoke with a former college volleyball player. Who's gay and now has his own. Only fans page not only fan. So he's kind of an amateur porn star if l. getting into that mindset really like white. How does this make you feel you feel liberated. So those are. The i mean there's such a wide array of cool people to talk about talk to and that's what i like to do with my with my with podcast and finally i still. I have the marks all over my arms pinch myself. Because i can't believe how lucky i've been lucky. I am even today talking to you and and meeting all these great people europe. A heck of a lot younger than i am. But you're still getting things to do and and discovering more and more opportunities to questions do you pinch yourself now.

"I walked in as a kid. You know fearful of teaching the wrong button and these guys were messing up all over the place and they were human beings. I think that's what surprised me. Yeah and i guess the business end of it is what surprised me the most because it is truly a business and if you look back at the brady incident for example why was that such a big deal yes. It was detestable for me to make a joke about to disparage his young kit of course but the station cared so much. Because tom brady was on our station. You know if. Tom brady was not a guest on the station a paid guest on the station. I don't think it would have been nearly as big of a deal from the station's perspective. So you know that. I mean i was pulled into the program director's office few times and pretty much every time it was based on something i said that potentially could upset sponsor. That's the key of it you know. It's not just people. Don't just get in trouble for saying controversial things. They want you to be controversial but they don't want you to be so controversial that then sponsor says something which makes it sometimes impossible to know. It's expected that's so true. I mean i of often given talks when people ask about controversial radio. People howard stern or or even delayed rush limbaugh and i say to the person running the radio station. That has rush limbaugh on his air. One color matters green not blue nut red but grains. So what are you doing now. What's the current. Alex reamer day like. Yeah so i just picked up a new position Working for entercom. My old company a digital job so writing sports for w. e. dot com and a few other northeast station sites. Which is exciting for me. Because it's like riding a bike. I've always been sports writing sports columns. It's a good rhythm. So that's what i'm doing for most of my days but i also have the deputy managing editor of out sports for the last year. Plus which is been an amazing experience telling the stories of these lgbtq athletes and it's really improved me as a journalist. You know over the last year and a half. I've done a lot of freelance writing. I've kinda Out a sports doing more cultural stories as well and some political stuff. And i think. I've i've really now fall in love with the craft of journalism. Even go back to when i started writing for. Dwi writing but again it was about. Let me just. I'm so passionate about getting my opinion out. There go column com com column whereas now as part of my rhythm and still love doing that but like the craft of journalism and telling a good story is something that i've really come to appreciate. Can you share with me and with the audience. One or two examples of some of the folks you've covered in the outskirts columns. We remember some of the bigger names in sports. Who take that first step. But i'm sure there are many that are unheralded. Tell us if you would anyone outskirts. Most of the stories. We tell our anonymous college in high school and recreational athletes. Because those are the people who are coming out every day in and they really make a difference visibility matters. I told the.

"Hear more about. I mean all the issues surrounding sports. The game is sometimes secondary as is jordan outside of patriots game. Statistically not many people are watching the games. that's just the truth. So such a large percentage of your audience that i guess back from people used to drive into work around here. They did not see last night. Celtics games so yes. There's a big play of course in a big moment. Yes we are sports people. We are going to talk about that. But oftentimes i found that. That wasn't the most interesting thing to talk about. Especially with gerry and kirk in the mornings before the show we would be just bantering around and we were talking about. Oh my god. I can't believe ballot. Check signs that linebacker like we would talk about actual stuff that we were wilson. Will this wire brought that up. Because i do not know currently listen to that particular radio station and the reason is will you not there but the reason is i don't find it interesting. I'm not really that concerned about the the halfback hole on the patriots for next year. It's not anything that's grabbing me. I'd like them battling. But i don't like them talking about minutia and i think a lot of people feel that way. What's interesting is that was so ninety. Eight five had a different approach. Where especially their flagship show. Felker and mass is so sports centric. But if you listen to that again. They're not breaking down the third line white. They're talking about big picture. Stuff brady verse. Spellcheck israeli glitzy storylines. That roy is pushing all the time. Now to so yeah. It's it's about and the other thing is to jordan is like back in the day. Athletes only spoke to the media in the locker room. That was the only platform or they could arrange an interview. So what were those interviews about those interviews or about the games now. They've social media. So what bron. James can tweet about the election. Eka tweet about voting rights. He can tweet about anything he wants. And there's so much content out there it just gets put in this machine in. Its plastered all over every headline and then you have a story so i think that is a big part of it too that athletes now are conspired off about anything in whatever they want so that's everything they say is news and on their own feeds. They're often talking about sports. They're talking about issues like a lot of us. Amid if you were a kid in the sixties as i was the the whole notion of anyone even thinking about the national anthem and not standing or not saluting or even thinking about the anthem. Just get it over with. Let's play the game. It's bizarre here's a question for you as a younger professional. What's the most surprising thing about the business when you get into it professionally. I mean something that you may have thought. Oh it's going to be like this and it's not like that or it is like that. That's a great question i always. I interned for ninety eight five in college so i was in that environment before. I actually did it so good. You're going nine for stay. Well i was one thing that was surprising to you. What surprised me in this goes back. A lot of years is here. I was listening to these guys. I worked at w. r. k. o. And it was a magic station. And i was listening to these amazing guys and what surprised me you mentioned this earlier was how Insecure a lot of them were and and his boss jock as they sounded in his cool as they were..

"Because that's what they did. We talked about everything on that morning. Show so that's what happened and brady had a weekly statement. The station which was their most valuable guests spot. It was spa. Every question was sponsored. that thing was a huge money maker and so he called in the following monday so about three or four days after the initial comments have been made and he reacted to it. The way that. I think any parents would have reacted to it. He was pretty upset and said. I don't know if i can continue to work with a radio station. Not insults my family and he hung up the phone. Essentially and from there i was sent home from the super bowl and then suspended and then was kind of in the dark for a while. They kept me on. But i was writing on online. I wasn't doing any on air work And it really seems like it would never end but then it did you know looking back six months later i was back on the air back in morning drive so i it's radio changes so quickly jordan and that was the lesson that as buddha sets few circumstances are forever and that i think that's a prevailing lesson i got in an era in which dr seuss is coming under attack and there are so many interesting peppy and these symbols. It's getting to the point where you know. You can't say anything almost without somebody being offended. What's your view overall. Alex somebody who's been through the wringer on this on the quote cancel culture. I know some people blow out proportion but yeah it does exist. People are losing their gigs. it definitely does. I have a couple of dots on this. I think my incident is separate from wad of what you're seeing now. Because it wasn't a stand i was taking. I was really just trying to make a joke and it was a stupid joke and it was a joke. I regret so i. I don't necessarily would put me in more of that. Like cancel culture category. you know. i wasn't trying to really make any sort of argument. I don't like it as someone who's spent his life in the public. I think that there needs to be more leniency. For things that people say on the air in on proof of it and you said renton when you're on the air for as many hours as radio people are on the air for you're going to get exposed and you're going to miss speak. I think there needs to be some more understanding of bats and in general. I just don't like this. The ugliness of we want blood and we want it now to me. The wine always gets drawn. We're public figures if we say something that is wildly out of bounds. Of course we should pay the price for that and of course we should be challenged on that to me. It gets out of bounds when you then have people coalesce in say. Let's try to get this person fired. Let's try to win his job and ruined his livelihood and it's almost a sport of it now and it's it's disgusting and you see this all the time i mean..

"Men and i felt i'm white. I'm assist man. But i'm gay and i have a bit of a different experience so i always felt like i was trying to bring a different perspective that a lot of our audience sat in heard and different voice that gets filtered out in the wad of the conventional sports media. Still so that's what it turned into. Yes they went further along my career and of course winding up as as i did at a boston station in your twenties is pretty unusual why we share certain things in common. I mean you in a sense you start out at the number one sport station at the time. There's a lot of pressure on you to perform and to to come through i would imagine toll. It was insane. I mean not. And i'm a very anxious person myself and i think that's another common denominator between a lot of radio guys People radio people. I think we all have certain things that we're dealing with because you basically are just sitting in a box talking into a microphone hours a day. It has to do something eventually to you right but yeah there was a lot of pressure to perform especially when i was doing the morning show and early on especially in my career. As you mentioned. I was so young i was twenty three when i first started with that so i always felt like every time i went on the air. I had something to prove. And i had to show that their promotion of me and the investment that they made me was worth it. So yeah i always felt like i had to make mark. Did the idea of doing a sleepy show never crossed my mind. I think that worked to a large extent in helped me to a large extent. But as i'm sure we'll discuss that also sometimes worked against me was kind to my detriment early on early on in my career. Jordan was really about finding that balance out. Do i balance this desire. To make an impact in be heard will also not just a total jackass in knossos. Staying true to myself and that's something that's challenging. When you are in front of the mike it is. It's interesting when i heard you on that. Very shall we say energized morning show. There was alex but then and we'll get into that kind of radio. That is still prevalent. But then i would hear you on your own show at night. Let's say or doing a weekend shift. Were you were soloing and you're in a different place. Then it was almost as if you had more command because you were the guy running the ship. Let's circle back to that morning. Show always felt you held your own under pretty tough battle conditions. Do you want to describe what that show is like conditions. Yes so i was in everybody. From the host the producers to the callers between the texters just took a swing at me. I tried to survive. Yeah i mean that was that was based you know i. I loved debating on the air and one thing that has always come easily to me was disagreeing with somebody over. The air was always comfortable..

The Value vs. Stress of Twitter, Pros and Cons of Remote Work, and Digital Minimalism A Discussion Show with Derrick Reimer

"Dare Kramer thank you for joining me on the show. Thanks for having me again. Yeah this is. I think this is going to be a fun today. Just kind of talk them through some interesting topics. I had a few in mind over the past couple of weeks and things have come up where I'm like. Yeah no I really want to discuss these with someone and and I don't know who to kind of bring on the show and then you and I were having dinner last night and I was like man we were. We got some good conversation topics. I figured we could jump on the Mike and Record a few these. Yeah I mean we both had a coupled fashions but we probably should brought our mics to agree. So one thing you kicked off with was just talking about is on a lot of our minds is like social media in general but twitter specifically specifically. Because that's kind of big in in our circles and the value versus the stress of it. Yeah I mean it's for me like my personal journey with it has been like thank. You know it's kind of the last the last remaining piece of social media that I really use these days like I've kind of given facebook. I technically have an instagram account. But I don't don't really use it and I'm not really like hooked on checking those things but twitter is is tricky wine. Now I think it is for a lot of people in the tech space because you know it's where a lot of our industry the news is coming from where a lot of the camaraderie among software developers and startup. People is happening. And there's not really to my knowledge other a platform like it. They're like Niche Communities in slack. And things like that but twitter is kind of the you know the public square for that and so it's it's always been. It's been a struggle automatic for the last few years I've been saying like you have given up all social media but I can't on twitter because that's where that's where like work stuff happens but I've just become so aware that for me the and I think it varies from person to person how they how they deal with it but for me. It's like twitter. Is always the default like I hit a rough spot on something I'm working on and what's my first inclination is is to go check. Twitter go get a dopamine hit and I'm just I'm kind of over it at this point. Yeah Yeah do you still have it on your phone. I took it off my phone which which has been good and I actually. I did another trick where I put all my apps in one folder. So now he just had like a blink blink desktop screen essentially own that also so like I keep email on there for example because I just want to. I want to be able to do email moberly. But I don't want it to be like something I- compulsively check if I have a break during my day and that's been a good a good way to to deter that when you put them all in one folder what is just make them hard to find. Yeah I mean it's just like I had muscle memory built like like I knew where to tap my thumb subconsciously to open email and now at lake adds friction to that. Yeah Yeah I do that with. I'm compulsive with email email and slack specifically the tiny seat slack. I don't do it with twitter or facebook and I've never really had that problem but it definitely I can see getting into that habit and I've tried to avoid it. I think the thing with twitter man is like I check twitter a couple times a week and and I think that's a pretty for me. That's pretty healthy balance. I might post to it more often a few months ago I was posting every day. And I kind of fell Philip that wagon. I'd like to do that again but yet. Yeah checking it. All the time is not healthy right. I mean that's that's kind of what you were saying. I say it doesn't feel good because you're going for the dopamine. Hit of like someone replying to you or a conversation or likes or re tweets. Yeah it's like it's like I don't know if I'm feeling particularly like just unsure about something I'm working on or just my business in general you know all these existential Many crises we have all the time in building startups. Then that's like a an easy place to turn. We're like I'm going to share some some a piece of work that I'm doing and it's going to have some marketing benefit. It's going to increase awareness about what I'm doing in hope people will spread it around. Maybe someone who knew. We'll discover my APP. You you know. So it's like I can justify that there's benefit to it and so then I'll share something and then it feels good to get people liking it engaging in commenting and by it's it's pretty hollow and it's pretty just it's a veneer that's providing like kind of a short term benefit but there's not really i. I don't think it's the healthiest way to engage with that. And then when you don't get the kind of response that you were hoping hoping for will then you feel bad and it's like why am I doing in the first place you know. This is not this is not a solid way to go and the struggle is that it's not just the social aspect like I know you got off facebook years ago and I think it was easier to justify because there was no work component. There is no way facebook was going to help you build or grow a company whereas twitter might and might I want to put in Italics and bold like might is really. It's like we know folks who have built kind of personal brands on twitter social media empires. I don't know of anyone who has built a SAS APP and the marketing was all twitter. Right it was like I view twitter as being this. It's really just the you can get small audience and you can get that first. Those first few customers are you can get the first people who are going to give good feedback. I mean it's part of just building kind of that that relationship the people but realistically I think once you have any type of product market fit and you're actually trying to build a scalable. Marketing approach like twitter. Is Not it right. If you're looking at purely as a utilitarian leterrier thing I there's definitely times in places to do it and be on it but it with all the negatives it does it does feel hard to justify to me. Yeah I mean it feels like a lot of twitter. I mean you can definitely come into it with a strategy of like. I know the Best Times a day post where I'm going to maximize engagement like kind of figured out some of those things for for myself and some of it you can kind of apply methodically other parts of it. It's like a lot of benefit that's come to me has been kind of serendipitous and I think that's where I have a little bit of fear that like if I were to give this thing up. I don't know what I'm giving up entirely you know like I don't I don't know what kind of random encounters interactions interactions. I might be missing out on. I think that's where the fear comes. It's like you know this could be the thing that catapults my nascent startup into a different realm if I were just they're engaging in the community on twitter and but the but in reality like I've become pretty convinced it's probably not a very good reason to to accept all the

"Ten week nights free she age yet joining us really appreciate Max Reimer filling in for me last week Wednesday Thursday Friday I binged though shows today as I was driving around for the day job and I absolutely fantastic content from Max really appreciate Brianne holding his hand to making sure that he stayed on the rails that's what I'm here for you know really appreciate that as well and of course keep Christiansen you guys should check out their podcast keeping maxim the world and keeping Max dot com was in on Thursday and I can always provides deep meaningful insights and actually want to touch back upon I this just occurred to me I didn't have an analyst for tonight but at some point tonight I want to touch back upon the conversation that they had on Thursday regarding a monumental and little reported decision that came out of the Supreme Court that has the potential Los shattering consequences I don't think that's an overstatement in terms of shattering president establishing a new president that if taken seriously basically means that we don't have the rule of law anymore in the United States of America which should come as no surprise these days because that's been the the tendency and the draft for quite sometime now six five one nine eight nine five eight five five the number to join us if you feel so inclined throughout the evening tonight brand taking those calls and producing the show so I want to spend some time talking about empathy empathy has there been quite a few calls for empathy as of late the left would like to claim a monopoly on empathy and compassion and common decency and feeling a motion sympathy they alone feel your pain they loan relate to the plight of the oppressed they alone understand the emotional stakes of any given situation in any given issue most especially right now and the current discourse the crisis at the southern border of the United States the border with Mexico as exemplified in the photo which you have no doubt seen at this point I know I have of the drowned father and mother or father and daughter I should correct myself who had crossed the Rio Grande unsuccessfully and ended up washed up on shore it is a graphic photo it is a heart tugging photo it elicits empathy and sympathy and sadness and a sense of of despair a certain kind and it should those are normal natural human reactions but we're told if you're conservative if you're somebody who you know forget about the the political ideological labels if you're somebody who thinks that BEA border ought to exist as such if you're somebody who thinks that immigration should have some kind of restriction at all and that the laws regarding who gets to come over into our country who gets across the border ought to be enforced vigorously and equitably another words they should be applied equally to all comers not just to a few not just to some they should be enforced as written if you believe that or anything remotely close to it you are on in prophetic you are apparently on move this imagery of a drowned father and daughter a year in human you're on feeling your I'm caring this is what you're meant to believe I want to spend some time in our first second tonight examining the the premise and the modus operandi I am the scheme to be quite Frank about it that is being employed here because very common on the left and those of us on the right to have become to a large degree desensitized to it desensitized to the point where we often do exhibit a certain degree of stoicism in the face of imagery which should properly react or or trigger some amount of emotional display because we're so used to the game that's being played but I think we need to spend some time actually addressing addressing the reaction that we have that we ought to have and how that reaction how are motions connect to our action because with the left is telling us the purpose that they're operating under is you should feel empathetic and because you feel empathetic therefore you should adopt their policy positions does that fly does that flow rationally and logically or even on motion only from any any sort of argument that's ever been articulated or is it just a rhetorical Blodgett that utilized to beat you over the head beat you into submission get you to shut up and move over in order to make room for their agenda I think you know where I stand on this let's look at a a couple of examples here of the way this has played out first of all regarding that particular photo from USA today in my grandfather and his twenty three month old daughter who drowned in the Rio Grande river in Mexico has written nude outrage the photo has over the immigration debate and spark debate over the graphic nature of the photo itself the image taken by journalist Julia did Duke our live Duke and showing Oscar Alberto Martinez Ramirez and his daughter ellaria deceased and face down in a muddy river bank has sparked visceral responses on social media and I would hope so it is a visceral image it is a tragic image it should properly if locomotion the question is what do we do with that emotion I want to dig into here later a of more recent report coming out at the Washington post several democratic members of the house made a stoned trip to el Paso and Clint Texas to immigration detention centers and claim to have discovered all sorts of horrific conditions I want to address this in more depth later as it relates to the point that I'm trying to make here in the first segment but suffice it to say the rhetoric is dialed up and then of course you have democratic candidate for president Pete to judge the south bend Indiana mayor during the second debate on Thursday according to the Daily wire he excoriated members of the Republican Party who claimed the mantle of Christianity but whose ideology and policies on border issues allegedly do not comport with such values and this is what he had to say is that the Republican Party likes to cloak itself in the language of religion now our party the Democrats doesn't talk as much about that largely for very good reason which is that we are committed to the separation of church and state and we stand for people of any religion and people of no religion but we should call up pucker seat when we see it and for a party that associates itself with Christianity the Republicans to say that it is okay to suggested that god would smile on the division of families at the hands of federal agents that god would condone putting children in cages has lost all claim to ever use religious language again there was people to judge in the second democratic presidential debate last week and this leads to the first point that I want to make regarding the emotional appeals of the left which is the in this case end this harkens back to my in my dream I mean if you will of the mirror universe where whatever you hear the left say the opposite in one form or another is typically true in this case but a judge accuses Republicans and conservatives of hypocrisy and in doing so demonstrates his own personally his whole Parker see and that of his party and that of the left because how here you particularly from the premise of Christianity and faith and belief in god after conservatives for not caring about children while at the same time openly and enthusiastically supporting the murder of the unborn indeed sometimes maybe even if they're a little bit bored you're okay with that I'm sorry Sir but you get in no way opportunity you get no allowance to speak on behalf of god and Christianity a morality and the children when you hold that position your talk about hypocrisy look in the mirror Sir and this is this is the first point I want to make regarding these emotional appeals is that the the the the first thing we should be asking ourselves is how is what we are being accused of true of the person who is making the accusation because it always is it always is when they call you a bigot they're a big to find out how ask yourself how when they call you a hypocrite find out how they're hypocrite because they always are you just got to dig a little bit got scratched just beneath the surface to find it and the use of these emotional appeals to to the extent that they're trying to utilize them to make you feel bad it's because here's the irony they're appealing to your motion because they know you have it right this is the great irony the calling somebody a bigot if you actually encountered a genuine bigot origin you and racist and your your approach to him is your will resist what why would he care no actually go check them out on you too the ones that haven't been deployed formed because they have an ascended to enough influence because they rarely ever do did these people care about being called racists the Richard Spencer is of the world is a call about the care about being called a bigot he embraces it he loves it he views it as hello he'll go on to justify his position to be like yeah but I believe that because X. Y. and Z. they'll give you an argument right the only people that type of accusation is effective against is people who aren't racist who aren't bigoted who actually care about the opposing values who care about tolerance and inclusion real tolerance and real inclusion who care about a society where people are judged according to the content of their character not the color of their skin take it efforts and embraced principles and pregnancies which are inherently anti racist it's only good people who get offended when you call their character into question bad people don't care and similarly when you make an emotional appeal on the level of you you see this photo of a deceased father and his daughter and you are you are you feeling in response to this photo if that were true then the attack wouldn't work if that were true then the attack would be absurd it would be absurd to try to shame somebody into feeling something if they legitimately didn't and so here's the question we need to explore accepting for the sake of argument that we all do have a proper empathetic emotional reaction to this imagery what's really going on here what what's the proper way to utilize into process that emotion and what is the left trying to achieve with their appeals six five one nine eight nine five eight five five closing argument minus water out since once the new stock eleven thirty one three five FM twenty Disney stock dot com we'd like you to like box the Twin Cities news talk dot com and.
