"Which is maybe out there for all of you to see. And i've only just joined the dots after all this time. But looking at the golf to stafford upgrade and it's an upgrade i'm gonna goff apologised. I like golf but look out an upgrade no doubt about it start to drill down more and realize that jared goff likes turning the ball over field. Yates he's got much. Yes the second most turnovers in the nfl. Since seventy behind jason's winston and that is a high bar deed right to that in most other generations would be a clear winner. They're gonna get out protection. That be protecting the bull more that the productivity the deeper mcvay. I'm just a little bit worried about the receive a cool that ease. That mcveigh's genius. I get it and not sure compared to others the deep waters in the playoffs. If there's enough strength in that. But i am with you. I'm with you on the ramps. All right number three. Which rookie quarterback is going to have the best season and took it fantasy terms. None of that. I'm talking the best season where we look back. And think okay. They were the number one rookie quarterback. Who's it going to be. Yeah i think you have to. I'll be prudent to answer trevor lawrence for a couple of reasons. He's one of two. They're guaranteed to start the other. Being back wilson beyond that as promising as we think freelance could be if he gets the starting job or builds could be if he gets the starting job. Or your imac joan for that answer for that matter. It'd be get the starting job. Trevor lawrence was the undisputed. Don't think twice about it. Lock it in right away. Number one overall pick perhaps the best prospects of banja la. The offensive line is expensive. It's not great for the thing. That's good enough. It's got two good running backs and as you mentioned with la viscous you know. They've got a pretty capable group of wide receivers. So i think that This offense is enough pieces in place. They got his gaping hole tight. End that i believe in travelers that divisions go little bit easier as well so that shedules going a little bit easier while depending i guess on on how the cult's mix up there the quarterback situation phil rivers comeback team. That start campaign starts right here. Out of interest is a great point. You make about mack. Jones and trailer. Who do you think we'll see. I out of those two. I it will see train lance and i the reason why i sound so uncertain is well because i don't know the answer to that right and this reminds me of a conversation. I was having with a coach on a team. That has a possible quarterback decision to make. If you said i see you guys on tv talking about what we were going to start this player versus the other and yet i'm in the building every day and i don't even know who's gonna start and by what week the rookie will take over right while you guys have the conversation every day you you forecast with percentages and things like that and the reality is we have no idea that wilson trevor lawrence we know about everywhere else. I think it's very much. Tvd i think we could have. One of those rookies as russell. Wilson arise where he takes the job over before the preseason is done and then we could see others where the team says. I don't care if it's a close race. We're going to start with the veteran because it's easier to begin the season with the veteran and remove him than it is to start the season with the rookie. Have him struggle. And feel the pressure to turn it to the veteran It's a great point. It's a great point and we could second guess so. We like just like the russell wilson. Throw there that season because what the hell happens about flynn do. We know where matfield is is. Is he still on a roster is he okay. Matt plan is not under roster anymore. But he's extremely wealthy He wins right. Yeah i mean. I mean we're talking. I think it was eighteen million dollars for three years plus other money he had made right. He's very wealthy now so He he is with the old expression. The person who laughs last laughs best. Yes indeed him and mike let chocolate all the way to the bank. All right question number four more likely to be mvp. Aaron rogge's or that prescott with aaron rodgers. Because i do believe that. Oftentimes we look towards team success as we will down our mvp candidate. You did a blind resume last season and i understand. There's a lot going on with him right now. And i'm separating that from what we're talking about at this moment if you a blind resume. There was a case to shawn watson and his impressive of a statistical season as anybody last year right and he did not come close to the mvp conversation because the team went four and twelve. I think the packers are better team than the cowboys. I don't think that's much of a tape. That's true of a more of a statement of fact slash belief so. I think that aaron rodgers is a better chance of repeating than dak prescott has of winning. I ever. Mvp d think because of all the commotion around rogers and the hype and and the room among garing. The a lot of people are sleeping on the pakistan. Strange kind of way. It's interesting question. Because i think the roster is better than people Feel like it actually is. And i think that when when aaron rodgers was going through whatever you wanna call it this past off season frustration discontent etc. Everybody knew The ultimately it was easier to take the side of the player that it was the team. i will say this. I know there are thing errands upset about. He's voiced his frustration. You made it very clear during that. Press conference A little over a week ago however it is also worth noting that there's no better situation for aaron rodgers to be in then in green bay where they have a loaded roster that is very much ready to compete again this year for much of the nfc championship but a super bowl. Yeah did you ever think that was a realistic chance failed. He was gonna leave this off season. Absolutely he talked about it several times himself. I have liro doubt in my mind. There is a realistic chance. He could have left. I truly believe that talked about retirement. Planning somewhere else ran. A cobb confirmed it. You name it. It's been confirmed so it ended up. Okay for the packers but anybody who wanted to downplay. This i think is just ignoring the realities And is it loss john saloon..

"Never shot a frame of action, the outdoors that are just brilliant philosophers that I can lean on now. And I don't want our magazine to look like anyone else is. And so, I have to go to these different spots on the internet. I'm also part of a thing called, the Psychedelic Clubhouse, which is really funny. It's like in San Francisco, who's doing a ton of research on psilocybin, which is really okay. Really cool. So sick. I think there's value in it. I do think there's value in clubhouse. It's just like home. I don't know. I feel like it's going to die out and the reason I feel like it's going to die out is because it's a social media but it's not a social media, right? Like it provides a lot of the same value that podcasts do in a sense that you can learn a lot of actually useful things from it. And you get to listen to experts and you get the kind of know people a little more but at the same time there's like you just said, like people are kind of trying to use it for their own benefit and it's very social media feels dirty almost to me and I'm like, I just I can't there's there's a lot of Bitcoin nft stuff on there. Yeah, which I think we're going to offer our first issue. We've never put it online. I think we're going to actually offer it as a with an nft certificate. What is an nft? What locate? So I don't know what an FTM I don't. I haven't looked it up. What does that mean? SpongeBob token but basically what it is like when your kid you go get a if you're me and your weirdo you're a Mets fan, you go get a ball song by Bill. Buckner read the ball. Go ask me his leg. Yeah. And what you get is a certificate of authenticity, of says, this is actually signed by Bill Buckner, right? And so, you know how long that certificate and the ball have more value than just the ball, right? Yeah. So an nft is basically a certificate that says that you own the original copy. Got it. And so what we would do is say, look, here's 194, it's the first issue back of mountain Gazette. And here, we're actually thinking about doing the, Adobe InDesign file and being like, here it is. You have it that person could in theory. Put 194 over the internet, I don't care, but we would actually sell the ownership of that first issue digitally to someone who would then own an nft. That would say that, like, hey, I own this movie, like owning an original piece of art vs are so interesting. I know I'm not that interested but I will say, my sister-in-law has made like a fuck ton of money off of Dogecoin. So, like, dude, I made some money recently to Adam X has made more money than not to put his shit out there, but he's made more money than me..

"Like only reason actually, you know what, man? No one says, like my username sex. They're like my krogi, a mountain Gazette verb cabin fuck. Like when people say that totally. Oh, dude, when people come in my life, people come in my life, sometimes people are like, oh, you meant for the Epic Pass. But Epic Pass loves fucking. They're the reason that you have a job, bro. Like somebody emailed me and I'm like first of all like you're emailing me about a meme that was on Instagram could just log. Right. Like it's it's insane but like I don't know. I own it. I like doing it once a week because I'm and I told one of this I can do it and I'm getting the free engagement. It's right there. It's so fucken easy and like I'm twenty-six. I'm allowed to make memes and be an idiot on the internet, you know. Like if Warner does it at fucking seventy-five or however Old Warner is like it's different, right? Like it's a different it's inauthentic to a point like this is my generation at Buscemi meme. Hello fellow kids or whatever but yeah, exactly. I don't know. Like I just I also think that, you know, I'm thirty-five like I'm not I'll never hate on a medium ever. I think mediums are really cool. I think there's many counts that absolutely crushed. But then there's also memes the out there that like our creative agencies and they're basically making their money off of stealing other people's content. And like, that's like any medium, you know, like, if something was yeah, this interview and putting it out as like they did a quick intro, it's like, okay, now Adams can interview Mike, you know, you'd be like, dude, I put a lot of work into that so yeah. Yeah. I'm pretty, I'm pretty fine. Like with me and stay like some make me laugh. I think Jackson Hole meme forest makes me laugh the most and that kind of good post. I also think that it's only for the month other than Moon cork, which I love like, I do feel like it's mostly like angsty single guys. Posting this is a lot of angsty single guys, I think. And dude, I don't like warm cork is different like they trigger a lot of people like those girls trigger land, but that's the other thing too is like, you know, kind of food is Ash, it's funny. You know, the truth to do the kill and they're like they're hosting a cast for us now. Like starting in June I think. But perhaps may like they're the best. Like it's it's they know what they're doing. They have an audience and I think that's why memes are funny, right? Like if I was to go and make a meme about snowboarding, I think it would be an authentic and dumb but I can make memes about gear. I can make memes about Vail because it's like the shit that I'm doing on a day-to-day basis and like I'm sitting in this stupid lift line that dog..

"Through a party with you and Jeff and rooster and and again like I'm not trying to throw like Redman and Method Man at Red Rocks party. Like I want to fight a great Brewery where we can actually let our subscribers. A lot of whom are an industry. A lot of whom are not in the industry, have a chance to get together and hang out. And I don't know, I just want to bring the community together cuz I think that's the one thing is everyone's pretty long, so that's one way, it'll change for sure. And then the biggest one is that I finally get to send people on assignment. You know. Like yeah one's been doing these stories from at home and you know like I'm looking forward to see. I've been talking to Gina Danza who did the macro photos the desert while Jean on Instagram. Like she yeah she's like I want to go back. Out of here I want to travel and so I've been like you know, hunting down tourism board's to get her out of her apartment to go on assignment. You know as soon as it's safe for her to travel internationally like I'd love for her to be doing that for us. And you know, everyone's perspective so far the magazine has been from their home. So I'm really looking forward to letting people get out into the world and and do stuff. I mean, I wash on assignment. I want to go places too. I've been flown. Like I was flying literally, once or twice a month, like, for the podcast last year, but back up until last year and now, like I haven't flown in a year. It's, it's terrible. Like, I want to go places like I, I just flew to Florida and write for, for our grundens, she cabin. Yeah, we went to England. Oh, and I will say, like, dude, Florida, like, most people are masked, like all the people you would expect massive have masks on and all the people who I've been told are the Dead. Is risk for covid-19 like nah. They're like in bars partying. Yeah. Like it's like, I don't know. They would have been in college. Like what? 1958? Nineteen sixty. And they're just like, founding so hard and you're like, okay, whatever, man personal responsibility I guess, is there at this point? Yeah. Right. Like, that's at this point in the pandemic, I think we are to the point where you can allow people make some decisions on their own, right? You want to be dumb. You can go be dumb on your like, that's allowed as long as the proper people get vaccinated right? Like as long as everybody who wants a vaccination, can get one. Then I don't give a shitt gif whoever's face you want, you know, like it really. It's like, it's to that point. I, I am pretty excited for our younger contributors to see the, the everyone's found the roar next Roaring Twenties through their eyes. Oh, yeah. I think it's going to be fun. I think we're going to get some really great stories out of that. I also think what's cool is that people have a new appreciation. For pretty mundane things. Like, for me, like, yeah, I really liked being on the Atlantic ocean sounds so stupid. But like, when I went to an outdoor bar, there weren't a lot of people there. I grabbed a beer, just thought there was like, wow, the Atlantic like up until like, a couple of weeks ago. This was like impossible to get to unless I drove from California and that's pretty, I don't know. That's a cool look at the world and maybe people won't be like doing those bigger, fastest, strongest, like, bullshit articles that were also sick of and they'll be like, hey job. Application Trail is dope, but also the Appalachian. Mountains are cool and the Adirondacks are cool. And the greens are. Yeah, I did talk about..

"Ski areas like both great terrain parks but you know very different countries but they want to have the same past experience. Small ski areas are like the Corner Bistro that's been like locally run and has like maybe three great issues maybe too much on their menu and their quirky, and you have an opportunity to experience something there that you might not be able experience at a larger Place. Less intimidating. Thing and so four people that are learning how to ski. I always tell them like, you know, it was good enough for Warren Miller to stop up on Donner Summit, you know, it's good enough for you to stop up on Donner Summit and try Soda Springs or Palm sugar bowl or somewhere else. But I I'll bring it back to what's happening on my side of the industry is that, you know, there are giant conglomerates and medium right now that seem to own every magazine. And we just learned with powder and bike, shutting down, that sometimes conglomerates aren't very good. These efficiencies don't necessarily work sales person. Who knows if I was, you know, ski lingo might not necessarily be able to go in, sell, stand up, paddle, boards or skateboarding, you know, like we all have individual cultures in these thoughts and I think that, you know, for me like it was very flattering to get multiple offers to sell Mountain Gazette and verb cabin but dead. I'm really happy like, you know, and I think there's some small ski areas where like they're really happy, you know, they're running. Like it doesn't mean they're killing it, but it doesn't mean they're dying either. I think we liked America. We've sort of come to this like conclusion that we have to sell everything. Everything you're saying. We have to buy scale, scale scale scale. Everything has to be a banner year every year like we all. Yeah, he's got to be rich, make it. Yeah I mean truth be told like Mountain Gazette is in a place that I could stop making videos tomorrow and can make two issues per year, hang out my son, all the time, and just makes you feel uncomfortable..

"You look at that dude's show notes, it's insane life, dude, has like paragraphs and paragraphs and paragraphs. And if you look at like, I don't know, mine for example, it's like, hey guys, this is 151 cool, thanks Fischer, skis sponsored Blah Blah Blah by wage Like that. It's It's Different Strokes for different folks but like I think that a lot even just aligning Yourself by sponsoring Steward show shows the value in bringing on people that really need like they're specialized no man. Well you know like unlike you or Kaufman or Powell like or Mark like when we got to Stuart, Stuart never had a sponsor before and I was like, hey man, like I want you to just keep doing what you're doing. I think the only things I've ever like stored and I work on is a dream. And most of the time I'm like, hey did when you, like I've already told like, when you get the new issue, just tell people how you feel about it. If you think it sucks, you could say, hey, subscribe, because let's see if they can do better, you know? Like I said, it's all good. But, you know, I'm super pumped to be a part of that and where we can, we are a small company. But yeah. Supporting me. I mean, dude we've taken out one print ad ourselves and it was in a student-created Sierra newspaper, sick that, you know, young kids are mammoths and these kids from Truckee created and we took out. Yeah, I took out a half-page in it and that's spent seven hundred bucks and then took them as they made a profit on it. And so this school newspaper, what do they want to do with their profits? They wanted to buy pit vipers so I link them with Spencer over a pit viper like you know and so I don't know man life. I really it's not it is marketing but it's not like marketing and I'm using are quotes and that. Yeah I I want to support that I like, you know, and I want to support the things that I like, I think, you know, again, with Stewart's podcast. Like he like he had that great chat with Rusty Gregory and I was home..

"It's just a cool story and as far as the mountain Gazette goes like, I want to make it for the people who subscribe to our magazine, like we aren't going to, we both had for for offers to sell it already crazy. Yeah, it is crazy. It's very flattering. It's cool. Makes me just believe in what we're doing. I've met with a few investors, but right now mainly mean, we're we're debt-free and profitable, ten months into this experiment and you know with Jason Leventhal as a pseudo adviser and he tells me all the time dude, what you're doing is fucking amazing and he's like nobody reads anymore that's what she tells me that nobody reads anymore but you're getting people to to read. I don't think that's so accurate but we did take a play on that and Shane McFalls. Designed a special sticker for all of our subscribers. An owl, it looks dead. He's holding a joint, I think. And he has the magazine and it just says I read. It's like the perfect laptops. Change the fucking genius. He's such a talented artist and I'm really stoked. I haven't, we haven't met worked together since our ski the East me had film days, way back when. But the angle is to you know, make the next one. Like I just told you like we're already talking about 196. I'm super pleased with the voices that we have coming in the magazine. I mean are the best you know. Jake who shot our cover is never been published before. You know like a huge to me. Literally like was uploading as high res images from a army base in Alaska where he was quarantining before he could go out and fight fires in Alaska and you're like yeah this is sick..

"The customers who were subscribing and wanted the first issue, and we didn't have anything for him, but whatever I was like, look that's all the more reason why you're in a good spot to subscribe. So we people subscribing November of last year, I've never seen a copy of mountain Gazette and so we ordered some extras. So that, you know, for the people who subscribe between now the magazine will arrive at our house next week and will start shipping them out immediately. So you should see it in the next like two or three weeks. You know if you subscribe like from now until 196 and the fall off which actually like there's a story in there that you and I were sort of a part of Twitter about the bullshit New Jersey rule about how long Can't do a wheelie in the street know. Yeah. What the fuc. Yeah, we got something with that and I think we're actually bringing the Rough Riders into it, so that's sick. Yeah. So you may rest in peace to frequent Lake George vacationer. Earl Simmons AKA DMX who just passed away a couple of weekends ago but, you know, I, I don't know. You said something interesting where you're like, something that sits on a back here toilet, when you take a shit like, dude, I don't know. I have not wanted to put someone's life wage or hips work on the back of toilet. And so that's why, that's why our format is bigger. That's why our paper quality is higher. It's why we invest it in a subscription costs, a lot. Like we just help people like when they ask, why is it so expensive? We say no, it's actually like appropriately price. We're paying our contributors, a fair wage repairing, our photographers, a fair wage. We're shipping it to you and biodegradable packaging. You know, you can literally put the dirt bags, whatever you can literally eggplant or packaging in your backyard and recycle the cardboard and call it a day off. Like it's awesome. Like our packaging is actually worm food, which is pretty cool. So and then was awesome. As if you get tired of your magazine you want to recycle it start a fire..

Fire there fires that you can have some real like someone's have control over but yeah we have a we put a controlled burn on the cover of our magazine. And I have quickly found that as either made people extremely stoked to fight fire or extremely upset for people who have been through fires. Wow, yeah. I I run a magazine. I'm part of this independent print Revival. That seems to be happening which is really cool. Cool thing to be a part of. Yeah. Can I can I ask you why? Why do you think it's happening? What is different about? Cuz I think certain magazines are doing a good job at this and I think some like our kind of just hanging on for dear life. What's what's different about Mountain Garage? Know what? Because I think it works like, it's it's very weird. Like I I am definitely of the camp that thinks useless print is dead and I think that's kind of the key part is like there's there's Space for bad print anymore. And I think what you guys are doing is really cool and there's something that attracts people to it..

"I rarely go into it. So you're lucky. Greg because you asked i wanna know well. I grew up If you when. I was young. I i had a sensitivity. Nice still kind of do. And i don't talk about it a lot but to like energy and spirits right and ghost and stuff so growing up. I saw a lot of weird stuff and the family. That i came on my fam- the family that i came from my family and my family has always been very open about paranormal topics. So i grew up without being say without my parents. No that's not real. They said okay. If you saw that you know tell me what you saw type of thing you know and so you know i grew up. I became a teenager. You know and then. I had some more weird experiences you know. One of the weirdest ones is And i don't talk about this much either I had friends who ditch school. And i didn't go. I went to class. And then all the sudden i just started freaking out and i found out i felt weird and then i find out later. that all of them had been caught by the police. So i don't know if i get some sort of sense about that but it was. It was really weird. So i chalked that up to another weird experience. And then as i became older more and you know went through high school. I started to get into conspiracies more and As i exit high school. I really started to from conspiracies. I started to delve into ufo information. And what would happen. Is i would start spending my evenings outside sky watching and several times united zeolite here and there but nothing but none of my experiences. I'm going to warn you greg. None of them are very exciting. They're just little subtle things. That happened that i've added together over the years and just said okay. That's interesting so. I guess my biggest ufo are you a p or just an anomalous exciting was. I was the backyard With my sister one night and I notice a strange light blinking. And i said hey. Take a look at this. You know we start looking at it. And i don't know what possessed me but i said. Hey light a ufo can you change colors you know do green and we look at the light and it looks like it's struggling but it does blink green okay man interesting so i said. Let me ask you this light. I'm just asking in who knows if it worked or not. Can you is red or blue easier for you. And then boom red and blue. And then so. I said well if you're you know if you're actually you if you're not a drone or anything just you know fly across the sky. Show me something. You show me something to prove that. It's not a drone in that. I'm communicating the flies right across the sky so true or false if if it was a ufo. I don't know. But i did see some strange anomalous object. That changes colors. Seem to react to me and i do have a witness. Wow wow that's so interesting. I think that the the key thing and and i do want to ask about the ufo verses uap. In hillary. hillary clinton caused us. Because i just had a guest that went into this whole thing about hillary being on Who's at jimmy. kimmel show. It'd being like no. It's it's now you. Apm energy change the narrative and all that stuff Well actually you have any do you by any credence with calling it. You f. overseas. Uap what are your thoughts. This is my personal discussed this also with other ufo researchers to because it's a it's kind of a topic that you it uso uap researchers argue about and to meet ufo's ufo's are to find flying objects That is to name the object and the unidentified aerial phenomenon ombrella everything. I feel like What they are trying to do too is because ufo's are so the word. Ufo has a lot of stigma attached to it. You you say ufo and then all of a sudden someone's like oh. Will you believe in this and that tinfoil hat. But i believe with the changing of the terminology to uap as well that does help and assist The scientific research and there is government research into these topics as well. And i think the usage of that term helps for these scientific and these government papers for. That's not for us that's more for you. Know the people in the government. The people in the military that are researching this who. That's kind of my thought process for all those you know suit wearing folks that look at this stuff. Yeah do you think the clintons What do you think the clinton connection to all this as you know. I honestly wish. I could answer that. But i don't know i really don't know so you don't think there is a and that's fine too. I mean look. You've talked to enough people that makes me think that if you aren't certain about it that maybe there is less of a klenge odeon agenda which people think is just something in general in these topics specifically with realms to the child abuse and all that stuff but but that's interesting uh so the clintons haven't come up as much in that field here not not nothing. I've haven't really like. I can't. I'm trying to go through my brain. I'm like as i've i read anything. Where their names come up in. Not not to my knowledge or not yet area. Where i'm in do you do you buy into.

How can I find companies to sponsor my podcast?
"Hi, Chris this is rod from Omaha. And I've been listening to this show for over a year. Thanks for the helpful content. Planning to start a podcast and I want to do it seriously but maybe not professionally, but I want to plan well, then do everything I can to recruit inactive audience that will be attractive to sponsors. But what do I need to know in? How do I find those sponsors do I find them in advance or only after the audiences more established fact? Rogge what's up? Thank you so much for listening. Thanks for the question and I am excited about your podcast. Really glad to know that you're planning to take it seriously. You know not everything has to be professionally as you said, but to take it seriously, I think that is admirable. So let's talk a bit about sponsorship. Your question specifically is, what do you need to know? How do you find the sponsors? Do you find them in advance or later? So on that last point if it's important to have sponsors When the show launches most likely, you'll need to partner with a podcast network or distributor who will license and distribute your show. Now, this is changing by the month because I realized the follow up question is okay who are those people? Where do I find them while it's changing by the month? It's a very fast moving industry but a few well-known podcast networks at the moment include wondering Pushkin Industries, and cadence thirteen where side-hustle school has hosted. Now, in recent times, streaming services like spotify have also gotten in the game by producing and distributing their own podcast as well. Now, I just named a few of the bigger ones there, but there's also a lot of others as well. Assuming. You aren't going through a company like that, which is kind of like working with a traditional publisher for your book like there are pros and cons to it. So assuming you're not doing that, then you'll really need to focus more on building up your subscriber base before sponsors will be interested. And then once audience established. That's when you want to start looking for the sponsors a great place to start. Once you have a good number of downloads let's say five to ten thousand per episode more is Mid Roll. She can look at mid roll dot com they produce podcast of their own, but also sell ads on a commission basis for lots of other podcasts and as the other companies I mentioned mid roll is not the only option. So when you search fine podcast sponsors in Google or wherever you might find several other networks that do the same thing. Now lastly, in addition to those networks because let's say you're starting off and podcast is going well but you don't have really big numbers while you can still approach brands directly if there's companies that might be a good fit or you can invite them to approach you directly. So how do you do that? Well on your podcast website which you should have a website by the way include a prominent page called sponsor INFO or sponsor this podcast something like that. And I think if you don't have a ton of downloads, this is a good entry point because you can try to sell some other unique characteristic about your podcast. For example, it might be a small tight knit community that isn't ever going to have a huge listenership in terms of just the raw numbers, but this community is very loyal and it's in need of services that a sponsor could provide. So I've known a lot of smaller podcasters who have had. The same sponsor is often for years who have just really believed in in the podcast and they have kind of forced this good relationship between. The company, the PODCAST, her and the audience, and all without going through a network, which, of course, by nature and network is a middleman and there's commission involved and all that kind of stuff. So if you different options there, but I think overall whatever you do. The most important thing is building an audience like focus always on your audience focus on what can I do to create a great podcast? What can I do to provide valuable helpful content because that is the foundation for any relationship whether you're trying to work with a network trying to get your ad sold by distributor or trying to connect sponsors directly focused on your audience.
The Value of Employee Engagement (part 4) with Nathan Rogge
"I'm delighted to welcome. Nathan Ruggie the President and CEO of the Bank of Southern California where he's worked since two thousand six last year Nathan was recognized as a most admired. Ceo by the San Diego Business Journal and under his leadership. The Bank was honored as one of the city's best places to work. Welcome Nathan and thanks for being here today. Tell us a little bit about the Bank of Southern California and your work culture. They're a little background on. The bank was started under a different name out in a rural portion of San Diego in really tiny little organization. I always like to tell people that that bank got in trouble with the regulators before it was sexy to get in trouble with the regulators before the recession. And we've really spent a lot of time taking that little rural banking transforming it into what we aspire to be which is a regional. Bank focused on small and medium-sized businesses in southern California. You've got a lot of competition. What what distinguishes you from similar banks in the area. That's a great point. In fact southern California fifth sixth largest economy in the world there are literally an infinite amount of financial institutions and or competition out. There we do. I think that by being extremely focused on that small to medium size business client a client. Who really needs a relationship with the bank and is is an important aspect in a we focus on really experienced bankers in the market that we serve. And maybe our little knitter way. We hope to differentiate ourselves as we'd like to move fast incompetently so we spent a lot of time on that. That's that's who we are because there are there are like I said an infinite amount of choices for clients. Well I I love those. Two distinguishing characteristics relational agile that as a small businessman myself. That would be wonderful. Because I don't have that in my regionally so I haven't found yet I know you're very aspirational. And where you WANNA go. Every time I come out and we measure engagement you have more employees. Because you've acquired it seems like additional banks in all of this growth. You're involved with Nathan. Why pause if you will and have this focus on employee engagement and measure it. Let's go back to that comment about growth. You know the tiny little bank that I started with was about thirty. Six million dollars in total assets that means loans and the offsetting deposits. We have if you look backwards. We've doubled the size of the bank about every three years now. Obviously going from thirty six million to seventy two million dollars is a lot easier feet than going from five hundred million to a billion but the concept is still the same witches repeating that process of providing an amazing experience for your clients and doing it with what we believe. Important component isn't a highly engaged employees group. Now when you're growing like that you do have this interesting dynamic. Which is you're looking organically to grow and we do that very well but then we do an acquisition about one everyone to two years and so that means bringing on an entire group of people who didn't necessarily sign up to work for you. Yeah and so. Come in with highly engaged workforce to start out and also be able to explain to those new employees that are coming on board who we are what we aspire to be as very important and so the engagement component of this for those employees is really one of the biggest concerns and. I also think the one of the reasons why we're so successful a lot of people that leaders that feel that they're focused on employee. Engagement are actually very focused on employee satisfaction. And we see. The two is completely different. Employee satisfaction being an attitude employee. Engagement being a behavior. But how do you see as a leader? Is this just about making employees happy or is this something else might perception? And maybe this is a little selfish is going back to those clients that I want to serve. In the hyper competitive environment is the only way to provide an amazing customer. Experience is to do it with empowered and engaged employees. And so to your point. This isn't so much about satisfaction. I mean I hope that everyone is is satisfied but more importantly I'm really concerned about. Do the understand how they fit into the organization. Y. What they do every day is so important to the overall cause of providing a great customer experience to those small medium sized businesses. And you know it's interesting Nathan because the the research bears that out one study correlated employee engagement at point eight five with customer engagement. That is it's almost a one to one relationship. If if you could increase employee engagement by ten percent than would make sense. The customer engagement would go up by eight and a half percent but the customer experience is what develops that emotional connection with a company. We talk about creating emotional velcro between an employee and employer. But you're also in the business of creating emotional velcro between the bank and the customer. I think the challenge in banking or finance and a lot of businesses might have this his. Most people don't wake up in the morning and decide that they want. It changed their bank. In fact I can think of about a million things I'd rather do rather than change. My Bank is on the business owner. So once you're at that spot one year trying to figure out who do I want to have that relationship on go forward and how do I make sure that I'm working with the right company and I think those engaged employees show that they are the right people to be working with? I also think on the other hand that once you come to bank with us there is very little chance that you're going to leave now once again. I can't one hundred percent guarantee that on a transactional I don't know real estate loans but when it comes to the true relationship of where my deposits are maybe where my line of credit is things where I need to be working with the bank on a daily basis. That's where we think we shine and that's by the way where we think. Those engaged employees are so important so when when we measure engagement like we do with you. Year over year there's always a group of employees that fall into the category of either actively disengaged or somewhat disengaged what is the danger of those employees in your mind. Why is it so important to know how many they are and where they are? I think identification does help to the the recognition of understanding that you do have these people in the organization. And and at least in generalities where they're located. My particular concern is when they are a customer facing. Yeah just understanding that that will translate into a poor customer experience. And that's GonNa Affect our bottom line. I think one of the other challenges particularly early on was understanding that some of those most disengaged employees were also some key positions and had been at the bank for a while and I think that was definitely an eye opener and to your point. That's a challenge. You know these aren't people that you just walk in you know it's not a good fit. Have a nice day. Yes you know systemic to the organization so obviously very happy with where our numbers have gone. But I think It's that original identification or acknowledgment. Hey we all have a problem. We think we've got it figured out. There's a lot of work to be done and I think that's paid off. I understanding that it exists and then getting it out in the open talking to the staff on a very regular basis about how important engagement is to us in how we view it and then letting them see how particularly how the surveys are used to their benefit.

Joe Biden argues Republicans would work with him
"Are very, very, very favorite. Bob Ceska show. I'm Stephanie Miller at six liberal podcast network. You, you said that you wondered why Joe Biden thinks Republicans will behave after Trump leaves office again, I've said over and over I like kill Biden, I will vote blue no matter who but I yeah, I just it really is. Like he's running in a different time, even people from the Obama administration were like what is he talking about, like Mitch McConnell was always an obstruction? Jerk. Right. I mean, well, how does he suddenly think like oh, they're all going to play nice with uncle Joe, right? Yeah. It's good. God. I am really, really conflicted when it comes to Joe Biden Biya's again, I'm not endorsing anybody at this point. I'm not I'm only really only half following the democratic primaries this point, but the fact is that I'm concerned because I think he's on his way to being the nominee. But I don't know if he's up to it because I'm saying that because I think he I don't know. He's on some sort of legacy tour. What does that he's doing, but he doesn't seem to have eat, not putting any elbow grease behind light, but I grew with you. And I get it. I mean, I you know, I think someone said it's make America decent again is kind of what he's in. I understand this Daljit for that for just some kind of normality in normalcy, excuse me, and. You know, indecency again, but yeah, he, I hate to say it, but he does seem a little not just old. You know what I mean? Because that's eight just I know, but just like you're right from a different era, like where Dick Cheney's decent guy, and Mike. Pence is a good guy in these guys will all work with me after Trump's gone. I'm like, no this. It's not just Trump. As you say anymore, as you say all the time, it's Trumpism look all the way down from McConnell to gates in Jordan are buncha Smirke. You know, we just over entitled frat guys, aren't they? Yeah. Yeah. Well, obviously, Joe Biden, forgets eight years of the Barack Obama administration, which is odd because he was part of that administration. I mean the centerpiece of it. And the fact is that Mike God the Republicans were relentless with Barack Obama. Despite the fact that Rogge Obama, basically had zero scandals during his presidency. The Endo indictment foods zero people going to jail zero people being investigated. And but nevertheless, they went after him for God, everything from the fact that he put puts gherkins in exile to the fact that he wore a tan suit. I know about the all sorts of things onto onto Barack Obama and it failed every single time until you think part of the key thing about Mitch McConnell. Joe Biden knows if anybody had a front row seat for the Mitch McConnell, was the one that, you know, C blocked them from saying anything that the American people about Russian interference and is now presently refusing to put forward, any bills to prevent rush.

"What Rogge drying waived extradition in February. We're here is that news conference while we respect the court's decision. We are disappointed by the length of the sentence. We ask for forty years. What I can say is the defendant I took upon himself to commit violence. He then decided that he would solicit someone to kill a federal agent, and then he assaulted and inmates. So this is an individual had a pattern. This was not isolated to the initial conduct. And obviously anybody. Who is threatening or taking any action against our folks, we take extremely seriously. Choice office. We s percents a forty years the sentence. The defendant receive was only sixteen so we are disappointed in the sentence. It is notable though that the defendant also received forty five years of supervised release, which will have very stringent conditions. Menendez significant we're very fortunate here that there was not an actual bomb. And so the efforts here were outstanding in helping us identify the defendant here in ultima, Ian, holding them to account. I think it's a fair and just. I think it's. Incredibly well thought out. I think it's only a year above what probation recommended the fact that that the court didn't accept the government's case at face value. Dramatic and significant. This is this is a terrific result. This gives him his life back, and if the government had its way he would not have a life of.

"I can never be ungrateful about it. Because there was so long Rogge's felt like I had so many things to say and no one wanted to hear them. So I just felt like I was bellowing out into the night. We've you know. No, even an echo coming back at me. So to feel like your as a writer to feel like people are reading you is wonderful, so people come speaking to me all coming up say something nice about the book is lovely. There are moments when I worry about being moments when it's really caught me off guard, and I worry about I want to disappoint people. That's the thing. So that makes it sound like make myself sound incredibly magnanimous. But as in you want to be on good form for people who are being so generous with you and. That sometimes does take you by surprise. I was out dancing a couple of weeks ago, basically altered state. Hi on life. And and I was you know, it was like three in the morning, and I was doing the site mad dogs with my best friends had this really hold. We can we really excited about going out. And just like acting like maniacs. And the girl came over and started being really intense like speaking really intensely to me about this huge heartbreak that she had. And I just felt I didn't mind tool. I was so grateful that she wants to let connected me and chat with me. But I just wasn't. I wasn't in the right head space to serve hers. I would like to. So like that that just worries me because I just want to point people is interesting that because it's almost like, it's from the Burke. But also, I think social media has made people believe people more accessible than they are. Yeah. But also, you know, all of this is my own making. I. Make myself, very visible. I shall things about my life. Not so much anymore. But I have done for a very long time. So I think that I didn't know I think you don't I remember saying to Brian Gordon once otas, it does it frustrate you that everyone thinks that they know you and she said, well, they do they do me. And I think you can't like endlessly put yourself out there and Dimond people's time. And be like, no me. No me. This is my story. These in my thoughts these in my friends. This is my taste in things. This is my opinion. And then when someone tries to make that conversation rather than transmission go, suddenly, I'm sorry. You have to respect my received. Don't know who I am. I just don't you? Don't you're not allowed access to me. I just think that's really shitty attitude. It's it's it's it's it's just a big chain. Yes. I just about. Chain. And also it won't be forever. It's just a moment in time of my life right now. Yeah, I'm just acclimatizing to is such an interesting one as well with. I remember years ago with YouTube culture and how suddenly these teenagers would just like have no private anymore, and it was like lots of owed school journalists. When I will they don't deserve privacy. They felt they did. And so I see I think they deserve. It more actually because they didn't know what they were in for the whole point is when I decided short a memoir about wanted people to read it. Yeah. I know so I've been on social media sharing things about private life and writing columns about report life since I was like twenty two like I knew if it went, well, what would becoming so it's not like this is all my own make. Yeah. And this is not what I wanted. I never wanted to be a professional personality. And actually, that's the thing that has been the worst. Part of the last year last year. But in terms of the the people reading the book, and therefore like feeling feeling like they know me or whatever in the same way that ID with everyone's memoirs who I've read and enjoyed that was always the goal. So now throw wobbly about it. Yeah. And it's nice that people feel they do. Yes. Lovely. I mean on the flip side of that as well. As something I'm fascinated with in terms of the romantic side of things as well. How how does that work now?.

A dog that they miss from the past once lost and and the deep and abiding love for that dog because dogs. There's so many things. So many shiny things that we chase in this world. And we forget the wonderful beautiful simple things around us. Until they're gone. And then we realize those illusory shiny things that we've been chasing. They do not satisfy us. They do not complete us. They're not make us whole, and they are not wholesome. That what matters most. I don't think there's anything that's important in this world that wasn't in this world one hundred years ago. Or two hundred years ago. The love and loyalty of adult. The deep and abiding love of your family. Deep and abiding committed friendships. Satisfaction at hard work having accomplished a goal. I think that what has happened is that the tools to help us accomplish more have become accomplishments in themselves. And so we try to we we we we seek. Fulfillment in the tools. These are just tools social media technology phones. Computers, even automobiles they're just tools. They're just a tool to transport us or to communicate. They're never the end in and of themselves.
