"That some people were attending. some people. were on nine this semester. Maybe maybe attending excuses worked out for you guys. Yeah i mean it's it's a new way to adapting also in business on bets. That's what you learn in the business. You have to adapt to direct for global team especially in our school. I don't know the exact number. But i think we have nothing on seventy different nationalities and so. You have to adapt to of international teams. Also all around the world and of this online offline what we have knowledge cove. It's would experienced drivers. It's really teaching you how to be flexible with business. And your connections and how to connect so. This is very nice teams with countries because we learned that as dona podcast go because we we're speaking to men well in barcelona so yeah same thing same thing. Yeah so what has been the driving force behind your desire to build your own business and well. Yes so generally. I always had the idea of coming up with something and having the freedom to do whatever i want. This was obviously hearts grew up in germany. The i was thinking. That's you can just make company if it's like a multimillion dollar company so you to to actually build a company lost money Resources everything with always seem impossible than when i started traveling and getting to know people who started their own. Businesses are even from wherever they wanted to think of. Kedah can't be that hearts to actually start your own business and then come into geneva business school we have. We have causes that basically teach you over the course of twelve weeks how to start a business from the creation of the idea to actually the end getting investors et cetera et cetera. So this made me realize how easy it is and this is just motivated. New so much to say okay. I like this product. Or i like something. That's creative business of its so they actually gave you classes on how to raise capital to launch a business. Yes this was fight pot of one of the classes. Yes so it's a very interesting. You can approach. Different ways. Can for example protests. What's what is the problem. We'll have in my life right now and then you feel the new to solve this problem and you see two other people have the same problem and then you make a business out of. It's so they show you just how easy it can be to to come up with an idea and developed this over a course of weeks to an actual final launch interesting. Wow that's that really just kind of funnels in what you need to do. Instead of spending years and years on just doing the basics they really get colleges. Yeah exactly go to one college for another college for another. So this is very. I didn't know that thing manuel that. I really appreciate you saying because i know how important this has been. An ngo is life is the networking totally business. Also the good thing under squid for example dead. You can talk to people because they into industry doesn't matter in which industry to go to. One teacher is in dire. At least one of the professors is in one of these today to try to bring to networking events etc and the most important part of a business is to network. This is just how it is definitely doing your networking. You're doing it all in barcelona. Then our online had this also changed snow of cornell quite bits that the first networking we did from school generally i did was obviously based in barcelona And through linked maybe but no if that everything online there will conferences and meets upset cetera. Online and people from all over the world could attend so then you start working with people all over the world's also because it makes you realize that you can just actually went people all over the world. I don't need to have my colleague sitting right next to me as the other side of the wells and we just have a zoo meeting for example and not getting focusing a bit more because with my business via based in barcelona so my networking is mainly sedona. But we also want to expand so. That's yeah. I'm trying to try to network lights and like podcast like this is a chance. For example. we had a guest from the geneva business school before she was the one who put together the would not class but the program course is inappropriate program for sixteen. There were sixteen. Yeah mark program. It's brilliant in every once in a while. We she sends us. A linked to one of the online class are not online classes online discussions. And they've been very interesting very informative right but why don't you go with your question. Okay so how did you come up with the idea to get involved in your current business and tell us a little bit about that okay. So the current business called ara. It's a silent. Disco will had fun company for one. Pseudo know what it is. It's basically headphones. Who have one transmitter. Who transmits music so music saw so for example have a. Dj will place on music and everyone best headphones listens to this kind of music. So this is for sutton events like music. Events seems at the beginning of the awkward. Because you think with headphones not able to speak et cetera. But it's actually a very fun experience and two can use it for viral tees off of use cases so we can do music events with it. We can do yoga meditation and we actually getting developed in some environmental programs as well So this is jenny interesting What's what did i skip null to extend no. You actually usually answered a perfectly. We had a question in between there. And so i'm gonna ask you based on her answer. Yeah is what exactly do you do every day to build that business so we. We started doing Renters in advance. So we go south one hundred headphones and be started doing events befits organized events for people to buy a ticket in the tend to we have a dj and the also interesting fact. That's what i forgot before is that you have three different channels so for example. Dj of house music. And then we have you can make a switch on the headphone and you can listen to a different types of music. I would compare the like in the car. You have a radio station and imagine you just have three radio station that you can switch between them so every car can choose whatever radio station. Listen to and this is basically the headphones Everyone can switch between the three stations and listen to the music they like so everyone basically dances together with the music look alike and then you can obviously go further and stu yoga lavigne's What we want to do so this is what the contents be developing right now. What people liked what people want to do. So yeah there's a lot coming and another step is than the setting parts that we actually want to distribute this all over the world basically. That's a really great concept. I was gonna ask you that question. Seems like what you're doing has an as international appeal more opportunities..
Gov. DeSantis Sidesteps Biden, Announces Florida Will Purchase Monoclonal Antibody Treatment Doses Directly
"Last week. We highlighted how joe biden decided to try and prevents the distribution of monoclonal. Antibodies going to florida. Joe biden basically said that he wants florida's senior citizens to die. And you're on your own even if you're vaccinated. Even though half the people the monoclonal antibody treatment centers were vaccinated. Joe biden wanted nothing to actually help people in florida so a republican a press. Release writing republican and. We have plenty of those. Like the governor of arkansas who smirks on television and says oh yeah. Joe biden has called the back they would just allow the order from joe biden to throughout the federal government doesn't want monoclonal antibodies. I'll write a letter. What does ron descent to stu. Rhonda santa's calls up the manufacturer of the monoclonal antibody treatment center. I'm going to buy from you directly. I don't care what the federal government says. We are going to get the monoclonal. Antibodies for our people. I don't if i'm breaking the law from the federal government. I don't care. My people need the monoclonal. Antibodies that was rhonda santa's willing to defy federal statute to actually give his people what they need. That's called courage. Prudence creativity and
Rocking at the Rose Bowl: UCLA Upsets LSU
"Bruce you had a a i would say you know even better than front row seat for one of the more Eventful results from saturday. You were the sideline reporter for lsu ucla. You've been telling us for months that. Ucla was gonna be this much improved physical team. I was very skeptical. I think most people were skeptical though. That's exactly what they went and did to. Lsu what was it like. There are at the rose bowl. Stu my ears are still ringing from last night It was a really fun atmosphere. I know a lot of people. Don't last week notice. There's so many empty seats at the rose bowl when they played hawaii and they kind of just kind of smirk at at the vibe around the rose bowl and the place was Was basically packed and there was a bunch of lsu fans but it wasn't. I won't point. I thought it was gonna be fifty. Fifty was probably seventy five. Twenty five or so Ucla but it was really good energy in the building. I thought from our meetings. We went to practice on friday. Just a lotta confidence about what they they feel like. They have become at ucla and chip. Kelly told us we gotta remember the for context when he first got there they had sixty three players go through spring. They had one hundred fifteen this year and the the first year at fifty seven scholarship guys may be seven. Scholarship offense alignment now. They're well over eighty scholarship guys. It's just it built to this. And so i think like you. Lsu it was really interesting. Tommy moffitt is lsu strength coach. And he's been at lsu for a long time but before that he was at tennessee. He's been around some big big time programs and he said he was while they are a really good-looking football team watching them. More mob
What is Prolonged Fasting?
"Does the prolonged fast and prolonged fasting for me. Anything over twenty four hours. The next thing is what are the benefits or prolonged fasting and there are greatly different. Compared to intermediate fasten. There are a lot more a lot more extended now. Doing the intermediate fasten. You obviously get weight loss. I mean we all know that you get in weight loss bud during the prolonged fast and you get a lot more benefits of weight loss which is obviously a hey. You didn't haven't been eating eaten for three days. You probably will lose more weight like that. So that's one of the benefits going to lose more weight. But i wanna talk more about better more important benefits in my teen when you go for that. And it's more of the health benefits that's m. self production increases. Not gonna touch too much into that. But it's really really cool stuff A hormone of growth will be elevated as well. Obviously because you fast and and the great part or went hormonal. Growth is elevated. And when you get in their key tones with the fast in your going to have the muscle sparing effect meaning you. Stu can work out and you still can be saved during at least seventy two hours fast when you go further you have potentially possibility at least from the studies that i've seen start getting breaking down the proteins from your muscle tissues and things like that so i i recommend to do extended fast divisive thirty six to seventy two hours. My personal opinion. You get the best bang for the
Wet Notes 8-30-21
"This is wet notes here on scuba shack radio for monday august thirtieth two thousand and twenty one. Well we have certainly had our fill of extreme weather lately just last week here. In connecticut we face the challenges of tropical storm on re just barely below hurricane strength and at the last minute it shifted east and we avoided the brunt of the wind rhode island wasn't as fortunate and now we have item a cat for hurricane hit louisiana. Extreme weather is now the norm. The news keeps getting worse. Recently there was a study published by nicholas bars from the potsdam institute for climate impact research and that was that the gulfstream could be varying towards irreversible collapse. Now the gulf stream is part of the atlantic meridional overturning circulation or a. m. Oc this circulation takes warm salty. Water from the tropics moves in north and then takes the cold water south. The study finds that the circulation is at its weakest in one thousand years. So what happens if the gulfstream collapses that will dictate extreme cold for parts of north america and europe. Is the collapse imminent well. That's not an easy question. Answer it could be decades away but as we have seen things are happening a lot faster when it comes to climate change not only will the disruption of the gulfstream resort in colder north american temperatures. It is predicted that there will be a rise in sea level disruption of the monsoon patterns and impacts on the amazon rainforest. An aunt arctic ice sheets. The study concluded that is that this is all a result of human endorse induced climate. Change in may of this year. I talked about a project out on lake. Tahoe called cleanup lake. That project had an ambitious goal of cleaning over seventy two miles of the mountain lake. So i thought i would give it a quick update on how the work is progressing. Now these numbers come from the cleanup delake website. Cleanup delete dot org as earlier this month. Team of divers has removed an amazing eight thousand. One hundred and twenty two pounds of trash were three hundred and three thousand six hundred eighty four kilograms and covered about twenty two miles or thirty four kilometers of coastline. There update indicated that they have completed seventy four dives over twenty seven days of diving. The diver's consumed two hundred and eighty six cylinders of air. Today there have been eighty one volunteers who have delivered two thousand six hundred and eleven volunteer hours. Now i'm not sure if they're on pace to meet their objectives but that's not always the measure success. The amount of continuing effort is what really counts. Keep up the good work guys. The annual boston sea rovers clinic for this year is just one month away. The two thousand twenty clinic happened just a couple of weeks. Before the corona corona virus lockdowns took effect. We really didn't know how serious things were then. Now as we continue to emerge from the pandemic the show may just have the distinction of being the last face to face. Scuba show in the world before the pandemic and the first face-to-face scuba show in the world post pandemic monty. And i were at the last meeting. And everything's proceeding for the october. First and second show the show will follow state and local mandates and as the days pass by. We are all hoping that the show will go off his plan. This year shows moved from the traditional march date to october as a result of the pandemic that you'd be a great time to enjoy some early fall weather in new england. It'd be great to get together and diving is certainly a social sport. Do you miss dive training magazine. I sure do. I think i've re reread all the back issues. We have a good shop at least three times. So what's happening with the publication. Well i reached out to catherine castle garcia the editor to find out the latest catherine informed me that they hope to be publishing again in the fourth quarter of two thousand and twenty one. Now that's some good news. The fourth quarter is not that far away. And i'm certainly looking forward to dive training magazine hitting the streets and finally here on wet notes. I wanted to give you an update on the situation with dutch springs. If you remember last time. I reported that the property owned by stu jill school had been sold to trammell crow texas developer. Who's planning to build a large warehouse facility on the property. The initial word was that dutch would shut down after the season while a lot has happened in the last couple of weeks i there was a petition that garnered over three thousand supporters to keep the place open and as we know petitions can only go so far then there was support from patty professional association of diving instructors patty due to white paper outlining the economic benefits dutch brings provides as a diving venue. Patty estimates that because dutch exists. It helps to generate three point. Four billion annual retail sales in the northeast they tag the economic benefit to bethlehem at thirty four point five million as for tax revenue. The paper indicates that about ninety. Eight point nine million is generated for state and local taxes and northeast and about two point one million for bethlehem in addition to patty support. The lehigh valley planning commission has called the proposal of disaster for the quality of life in the lehigh valley while it seems that there a great deal of opposition to maybe very little that can be done to stop the effort. One positive. I that i did see. Was that trammell. Crow was indiscretions with local officials to offload the fifty off lou to fifty acre quarry for community use. Just how would you get to acquire if they build the warehouses. I don't know while the saga is far from over. I would expect that we won't see. Dutch brings open for the twenty twenty two dive season but his al michaels once said. Do you believe in miracles. Well that's it for this edition of wet notes. Here on scuba shot radio for august thirtieth two thousand and twenty one

What to Do When You Can't Find God
"Several years ago i read a book by a j swoboda called the dusty ones in it. He shares a story about his from high school whose name was stew. Stew met jesus through his friendship with jay and they quickly became zealous. An excited together. They read the bible. They prayed in front of lockers. And stu felt close to god in those days will soon. Aj lost touch after graduation as often happens in about ten years later they reconnected and that was when aj learned that statue no longer called himself a christian because once he went off to college he stopped feeling the presence of now. I'm not here to debate the reality of stews relationship with god or the validity of his conversion or even the role of feelings as they mix with our faith. But what i do wanna talk about. Is this experience. That many friends of jesus either have gone through are going through or will go through and that is the experience of the loss of the felt presence of god. The truth is we won't always feel god's presence. I know some believers who say they've never really felt god's presence. I don't want that to be true but it is true. The good news is this is nothing new. For generations and generations christians have wandered through the wilderness have walked through. The valley of the shadow have navigated life in the midst of difficulty loss and seemingly impossible circumstances. If you are walking through your own wilderness right now. You are not alone even if you feel alone. Saint john of the cross called his experience of not feeling god's presence a dark night of the soul martin. Luther called it. The scandal of god's hidden nece and barbara brown taylor in her book learning to walk in the dark. She says no. One chooses the dark knight. The dark night descends.
Coinbase Lists on NASDAQ
"It's ten o'clock at night. You know some people. I know it's a little bit light but it's coined by celestino it. So i one on jump on and have a little bit of a look. Yeah a little bit of As willing to total there for those you don't Coined by stu haven't go to sell button. Which is actually quite funny in australia and advanced group company. Billions of dollars. They nail on the nasdaq. But i don't have a cell button in australia. So he can boy and a lotta people getting bitcoin. If that was their first app. And i think it's a scam. 'cause you know he can blow. You can't sell anyway anyway. So yeah the bts coin base. We've come a long way. I guess back in the days. Anyone like look forward to that we achieved. I guess it's just assad effect of the company's maturing in the spice being even more comfortable with the companies we've always said that guests coined by the probably one of the most important definitely because they do things throughout why you think about even cracking her.

The Powerful Potential of AI in Agriculture - with Poornima Parameswaran
"So we can hop right in and talk about this kind of core business problem of kind of soil quality and understanding that informs today. Maybe you could talk about the business value there and how and why it's done because i think it's new for a lot of the listeners. Shar dan Today when people typically think about farming and farmers they think about another person farming and think about the crops. Everything that's above ground. Nobody really things or considers the land the soil on which the crops are grown. That's really not in your visual when you think about farming and yet you know. The state of the world is such that if we continue to farm the waiver farming soil and land today remember not just farming proxima farming crops and soil and land. There's only sixty cycles left of cropping left on the land on earth today so that essentially another way of saying it as over two thirds of the land. Today is completely degraded berry degraded to the point where we're not. We're not going to be able to meet our demands for food. Fiber fuel remembers largest. Food is also fiber. So that's really the biggest problem were faced with as a planet it's not just for our startup is for everyone out. That's the biggest problem. How do you cheated. Grove wood fiber and fuel with the resources that we have today while continuing to meet the demands of our growing populations. And that's really where the soil piece comes in. Is you look at everything. That's being done today to farm. There's so much fertilizer that goes into farming rape there are some of the stats out. There are staggering. There's two hundred million tons of fertilizer that are being used today or farming but growing our coroner are even almonds grapes. You know anything that you'd think of this food game from mando is treated with fertilizer at some point and we don't need all that for license plans do need all of that fertilizer back. I'd say over a third to half of that. Fertilizer is not taken up by plants. It's run off into waters so it causes water pollution it causes air degradation goes back to the atmosphere and it causes. Soil degradation right. And so there's this whole concept of overuse that's resulting in seoul declaration. There is also the area where crops have diseases to plans. Have diseases stu and one of the number one tools that armor is really have in their toolkit to fight. Diseases are pesticides. Nobody here about pesticides all the time for farming and typically people think of it in a negative connotation. Oh it's killing bees. It's killing butterfly on bright and it's causing social degradation but farmers really do need it like. It is a key tool joke if diseases if we can help them better understand. What's in their soils. That can place these fertilizers and pesticides in the right acres for the right indications that the right risk mitigation scenarios bats really where data in intelligence content. What is that land telling you. What is that soil telling you before you go into front that crop. That's really where did on intelligence about soil is so critical today and it's so exciting like all. The technologies are sciences. Where technology is today. That's where we are at that next like we are at the frontier where we can bring. All of. this is in this technology today together to be able to unlock the power of soil to be able to provide this intelligence to our farmers so that they can make better decisions. Not tomorrow but today
European Union Pushes for 'Digital Sovereignty'
"Like many other governments. The european union passed a massive coronavirus recovery package setting aside trillions of dollars to get the economy back up and running on the other side of the pandemic but also included in what is extensively a covert relief. Plan is a more than one hundred and fifty billion dollar pledge to bolster the technological independence one of the plans. Big goals is for europe to make up about twenty percent of global chip sales by twenty thirty. Which would be double their current market. Share it's all part of the blocks broader ambition of catching up to countries like the us and china when it comes to technology for more on this we turn to our reporters do. Hey stu thanks for being here. Thanks for having me okay. So why is the eu making this pledge. Now what's been going on in the tech sector that europe feels. It needs to address one of the things that the pandemic really showed was how dependent european technology is and other parts of the world especially for things like computer chips. So there's a global chip shortage right now and one of the reasons that there's been an unexpected surge for things that require computer chips so we're talking about laptops and tablets is part phones for for people who are doing remote work and schooling. But another thing that you might not think about requiring a lot chips cars cars now required dozens of chips for things like controlling the engine transmission. Backup cameras infotainment systems stuff like that and europe has a huge car industry. Yet you're thinking we're thinking companies like mercedes and bmw. Volkswagen and some of these companies has had to have to cut production and even furlough workers idol factories because the bill the cars. Because there aren't enough chipped going round in this world so the idea behind this is to have the european semiconductor companies have greater presence in the world so that these car companies don't have to go to places like the united states and asia by chips rate and i think when we think of the major global players in tack we think of the us we think of trying to and others we don't necessarily think of the e us tech scene. So what does the industry look like. They're now and how likely is push to work. As far as semiconductors are concerned the us and asia really dominate the sector. So you think of big companies like intel and does samsung. Tsmc there either in the us or asia. So you're trying to play catch up right now so you're does have a couple of big semiconductor companies like annex p. and am allen. The netherlands infineon in germany. But they are sort of in niches of the semiconductor industry. They focus on things like making the machines that make chips for instance or for specialized chips cars or industrial uses. They don't have the big chips that go into data centers or laptops or smartphones. Like the us or asia dies. So that's what they're trying to do. They're trying to really spur. This hub homegrown industry. But there's not a lot to start with and the learning curve for developing these really tough technology that requires really expensive manufacturing facilities. It's really steep and it's a nine years. That's a short amount of time to try to become a bigger player in the global chip industry right nine years till bat. Twenty thirty goal. They set for themselves. So why do they see this. As such a big priority. One of the stakes for the eu. One of the things That they realize was that volkswagen for instance they had to furlough workers idol factories because they couldn't get enough chips and they had to get those chips from other parts of the world. So this is a really really big deal for their economy. If some of their biggest industries can't operate because they're reliant in other regions. That's a huge problem for them. And that's that's been a story of their tech sector. In general for the past several years steel is the eu the only government taking steps like this or are we seeing similar action from others. The eu is not alone. And that's going to make its attempt to catch up and the chip industry even tougher one country. That's poured a lot of resources into advancing. Its domestic chip industry china. They set up. These huge government finds sometimes worth tens of billions of dollars in an attempt to catch up with places like the us and taiwan. Now the us in response they recently. The congress recently passed its own legislation to sponsor projects to spur the us chip industry. And each of these projects might be worth billions of dollars. They might get billions of dollars in tax taxpayer aid or financial incentives to build facilities in america to try to stay ahead of places like china. So that's going to be a really tough thing for europe to do is first of all the competing against two very well funded region and china and the us plus they're starting from from a smaller base and that's a couple of countries working to build up sort of technological independence. What does it mean that. So many governments are focused on that. What kind of impact could that have right now. We're talking about the potential decoupling of the tech sector. So there's been tariffs and expert controls between the us and china basically for something like chip industry is really important for a couple of reasons. One is military. The most advanced fighter jets and tanks and drones require really sophisticated chips. Artificial intelligence requires skated chip. So the wars of the future going to be determined could be determined by semiconductors on top of that there is a economic independence. If you're an apple samsung you need the most advanced chips to build your best laptops and smartphones. So we're talking hundreds of billions of dollars at stake here. If countries can't trade technology with with each other we're gonna see slower development of things like electronics. So we're talking billions of dollars at stake and possibly slower development if people have countries aren't willing to share technology with each other.

I just love about people in search. There doesn't seem to be. Maybe there's a degree in it but i very infrequently talked to someone who has such a thing my friend. Derek clarke failed. Who from dri who also been a podcast. Guest runs another search firm. She's an ordained. Rabbi every search leader seems to have this kind of wacky wildly diverse backgrounds. So how did your professional path leader to search. Please don't leave out. How cedar performance visit scrape up. Dick place for the start and especially i love. Dr and i agree similar to her and said lord is so many people in search we. You know it's it's things that line us up for this work even though we have no idea and then all of the sudden one day it's the only thing that we can do and so funny thing. It's actually a funny thing. Because i don't i mean maybe there are lots of other professional You know sort of professional career paths. That are like that. But this one seems uniquely wacky in that way definitely definitely and i think it's people think about what their superpowers might superpower. I rarely the smartest person in room. Sometimes the most interesting but what. My superpower is figuring out who the smartest in who are the most interesting people aren't any room and then introducing them to each other and just so you just shared my bio. I've had the chance to be in so many different types of organizations then community based work and national work in global work and in different parts of the organizations mostly in development but also on the program side in operations i. I'm social worker by training as you said i've got this theater background. Which is an interesting and so when it gets down to it. I love talking to people. I loved networking. I love having genuine and authentic relationships and seeing how i can be a resource folks and i was extremely extremely lucky and fortunate when i was at you at nsf usa to have Onondaga as my leader. When i was there and he was a believer. Not you know him. Joan of stu. He believed in creating ten percent of everyone on his team's time to carve out for them to do other work something.

And i liked going out and talking to people and letting them get to know unicef usa and in so. I was having a great time doing that. But it wasn't. My core job is really a fundraiser. And it was just threw a perfect stroke of fate that i was introduced to katy baton. Who's the founder of partners and she talked to me about what her vision was the work that clay was doing. She talked to me about her values and just as she talked to me about. I had no idea what an enormous sector the search field is and how many variations exist of nonprofit search professionals. But i i just decided that this is what i needed to do
Bill Barnwell Breaks Down NFL Quarterback Moves
"So bill. We gave you do the math a whole month away from this podcast before our dependency bio chemically kicked back in so i just hope the last four weeks have been everything that you personally needed. Pablo got on many vacations. I turned around my life after six months of just staying watching football now. Bill barn wells weekly column on. Espn plus and he hosts the bill. Barnwell show podcast realistically. I have done something that few human beings have accomplished. I managed to get one pack of moments from nba. top shot. yeah. We share that same addiction. You are far deeper into the game than me. I realized over the weekend. I just want there to be an nfl top shot. Because i feel like that's going to happen right. It has to. i mean. Imagine the things you could do. You could send somebody that colts fake punt from years ago or or if you wanted to try some of your friends. Perhaps you could send the russell wilson interception from the nfl top shot to a certain person with the initials m used to host the show. Yeah just randomly picking in that example in those initials absolutely but bill. We dragged you back here. Speaking of a certain quarterback who threw a certain interception emotionally terrorized ours. Because this is an especially dramatic. Nfl offseason. they're all these big name. Quarterbacks who want out of these relationships that seemed from a distance at least pretty broken and russell wilson and the seahawks. I need to ask you about that. I because i know russ isn't feeling respected by head coach. Pete carroll reporting. I know that carol wants to revoke all of his cooking privileges. We've heard now. Russell wilson like storming out of meetings which is kind of funny to imagine like door very lightly slamming so this particular soap opera. What is all of it. Feel like to you much ado about nothing really. I mean i just i. Just don't buy russell wilson drama. I go back to his contract. Negotiations this is the same player in the same agent. Who wants imply that he would leave football in the middle of these negotiations entering the final year of his deal to try professional baseball. Where russell wilson once for the iraqis and the organization he hit to twenty eight in the low minors before returning to college football. It was not a realistic threat. But if that way does he want the seahawks to give him more helpful on the offensive line which has been sort of the crux of his public complaints. Yeah i do believe that. And i think that the seahawks could benefit from giving him more help. They relied on russell wilson to run his way out of sacks and free pressures from unblock players which has worked for that stretch buddies also taken a ton of hits cuss russell. Wilson plays the way he plays. He is going to take a ton of sacks regardless of how good his protection is the best way honestly pablo to get him. Hitless frequently would be to run the ball more. Which is the exact thing. Russell wilson was trying to get the seahawks do lasso last offseason. So there is something here but i very much doubt that leads to a trade. My favorite thing about this new cycle i think is that russell wilson has relayed via his wrapped. Adam schefter that he is not demanding a trade but if he were there are these four specific teams that he'd like to go to the bears. The cowboys the saints. The raiders does any of that make sense to you know not at all i mean the classic russell wilson tropez that ciara was going to pick teams him in new york in los angeles which this is the opposite that list even the teams he chose are so strange. Maybe you'd argue that. He chose teams with great offensive. Lions triumph of the seahawks. But the trade doesn't really add up the same. Stu have agreed offensive line. But they're like sixty five million dollars over the salary cap. The cowboys have a great line. Whenever everyone's healthy but they also have back prescott. that's not gonna work either the bears. I don't understand. They don't have a great line or any cap space. That one makes no sense to me on either. Level the raiders. Maybe are the most interesting and plausible candidate of the bunch with a great line and some cap space to work with. But when i think about jon. Gruden as raiders coach. He wants quarterbacks to do exactly what jon gruden wants on every single play. I don't think any if it really adds up to meaningful trae dialogue. I don't think there's going to be a conversation between the seahawks and another team about trying to make a trade for russell wilson work but this is twenty twenty one anything is possible
How Being Yourself Makes You a Better Leader with author Minter Dial
"I want. say congrats on your latest book. You lead how being yourself makes you a better leader. What was the motivation for this book. So just like in the same idea. Be yourself how do you do that. And how much of you should you bring into work. We talk about authenticity transparency. But is it about being radically transparent. Radically empathic and radically you totally you. So that was the question. Mark ahead in my mind as i launched intas but actually i started writing this book in two thousand and fourteen and at the time i wanted to be like the book of my life like everything full out work personal and everything in between and it took me a long time to Stu and come up with this line which is hopefully to change the way we lead a not just in business but ourselves because in the end of the day. If there's is huge lack of engagement oversee the previously to books haven't exactly figure that out and then to understand how we can bring more of ourselves feel engaged fulfilled and up bullshitting ourselves at work. Which hopefully has knock on effective leading everybody else to want to be with you. Yeah i mean. Starting in two dozen fourteen. Roughly six years was their their moment where it accelerated for. You does seem like a long time. But i know other books. People have written not you but other people could take ten years fifteen years sometimes so. I'm just curious if there is an unlock moment for you. Well it's great. You know like those more academic papers need lottery such things like that. No this was the actually. The thing that happened here was sort of blocking moments Blocking tackle i had. I went off to croatia. At thirty thousand words. I was like all excited came back wife about it. I've really got a big slug of all of us. Had something happened. And i had actually three big loud bazooka moment blocking me or changing the course of my direction which included a call from the television station. Pbs saying hey mental. Your story so great. Let's put on television and clearly. That wasn't part of what i was thinking and and i'm busy doing something else. Meaning internet this actually takes preference so i then put on hold when off that one and then a friend of mine killed himself and that kind of took on another path and then so i've had these different things that have happened anyway. I would say that the walk. In kensington park with a friend of mine who had been published kogan page was the catalyst to getting contact with them and they said awesome. Great idea really. Love it and next thing you know. I had a publisher and that happened of course before the old pandemic started. We'll let's get into started down this path. And i stopped you apologised for the rabbit hole but i wanna to talk about what you mean by you lead. You talked about authenticity radically being yourself. Tell us a little bit more about what you mean by. You lied so i. I generally feel that everybody has leadership potential and but a lot of times. You sort of like won't take away the responsibility and this listen to orders. And i feel like if there's such disengagement at work something is not happening so the of initial premise. Is you lead you and you need to be master of you. Which essentially means at its heart getting to know who you are and what matters to you and so often we go through life. Allan where we're doing what we're supposed to do getting the title on the business card getting extrinsic ideas doing following in my father's footsteps or not as man whatever and we're not actually in touch with ourselves and this is a particular challenge when you're successful often mail. You just think that this is the thing and so the one. I'm trying to really griffin to is to be in check with who we are as an individual and then once we have that established we get rid of some of the chips in the shoulders. Were more cognizant when we're being emotional and irascible and disagreeable and and potentially more vulnerable and then we can definitely model a behavior that the rest of the team might follow through with got it and i mean those sound like great things to do like just a better know myself to be more aware of my own tics and talks. Yeah why is this important for leaders. Do you think well on one hand. My feeling is that leadership is still wonky. If not a terribly wrong and the other hand i think that is much as some people want to be authentic. It's they're not sure what they're being authentic about and why they're doing it so very quickly you can be put off the course you can be doing something because you think it's good to do because it's like there's the narrative being sustainable development is great. Let's do it but there's no real hook anchor back into who you are as we end up doing so many things because it's good to do. Oh that sounds like a really smart idea let's do that and by justifying rationalizing all these smart ideas. We actually ended up frustrating ourselves. Because we're going to not get to want to get too so i feel like the issue is. We've all been to university a lot of us or you know educated and were reading even if you haven't gone university it's fine but with intellectual curiosity we we kind of think we know ourselves because we have that arrogance may be pretension says i want of course i know myself. I'm fifty six allen. God dammit you crack question me on who i am but i think we have this sort of absolute ability gloss over the details. I'm an executive powerful. And i'm excited. I'm confident on curious. I'd fine but that kind of describes everybody at some level to sort of leggings generic concepts that you want to project but who are you deeply inside and if you're excited about sustainable development can you not attach it to something that's more relevant to you for example or hopefully i'll have one day grandkids. Well i'd like for them to live in an environment where okay well. That's at least a more personal hook as opposed to the intellectual size that it was going to help our customers think that we're better people.
Johnny Depp is 'radioactive' says Hollywood bigwig
"Johnny depp There were some great details in that story in the hollywood reporter about how radioactive he is. And we've talked about some of them before the five million dollars spent making sure the ashes of hunter s. thompson were exploding over a canyon somewhere. Thirty thousand dollars a month in wind bills. He has to regret the cannon thing i mean. He's at some point. He's gonna know if he doesn't yet he's but the thing that we were laughing about during the local hour is johnny depp. The details are amazing. In this story one of them is the bodyguards plural who would have to wipe the drugs off of his face in order to get him to a scene of some sort where they just have to brush drugs office but one of the things that was told in that story is that he was just merely needing an earpiece because he wasn't bothering to remember his lines. And that's where we're headed. Mike i'm sorry to tell mike and billy this now but still got if you haven't seen enough of the sort of lazy entitlement of stugatz who can't hear and the jokes are coming out slower because he needs to help through his ears on some of this stuff. It's going to only get worse. That's not going to get better. There is no better from there. Even with hungary less lazy seeing dollars in his eyes to god's perfect time to set on his own right.

"Our featured guest stu massive gil. He's the host of the finding direction podcast and it's tied. Yes for the twenty four hour challenge stupid you give the challenged everyone listening today absolutely so the challenge that we're gonna give today is is helping you go from being a communicator to a connector and you can use this challenge in your business life you can use it in your day to day life you can use it in your dating relationships in an area you want but the twenty four challenge twenty. Our challenge is going to be when you are having a common. When you're having a conversation with someone i want you to challenge yourself to find a common ground of interest with that person.

That's going to serve you the rest of your life because that's a skill. You really need to know how to do. In order to be more extroverted. Yeah and jv. If i could share one thing there as well as that. What's really interesting when you find this. Common ground of interest with people is what you want to begin to understand that as you go into a conversation with someone as you're communicating with anybody every human just the way. Their brain is hardwired. They have invisible walls up and it's because they've had conversations interactions in their life and when they when they start a conversation with anybody there unconsciously asking themselves to trust this person. Do i feel safe around them. Do i want to interact with them. And they're keeping their walls up there looking over that wall at you and asking those questions unconsciously and when you find that common ground of interest that's truly when you bring those walls down and that's that's really the only way that you create connection is by bringing those walls down so that's right that's why it's so important to find that common ground of interest. I love that. And i wanna take a moment just for you to tell you how much i love you how much i appreciate you and how much i'm proud of you because you showed up today and it's not really about jv or stu it's about you. It's about you taking another step. For turning that purpose into impact into money into the profit you want and the financial freedom and ultimately into making a difference that gives you deep fulfillment and.
The Mindfulness of Music and the Sound of the Soul
"This week i the honor of hearing stewart foo cts. Play the ukulele. He's teaching a course called ukulele then where he teaches you to find yours then through this beautiful simple instrument come. Let's dive distorts head and hear how his fingers help him get out of his mind. Hello stuart welcome. It's such a joy to be speaking with you today. Because i have to say as i heard your music i had to just find out what's going on inside when you play thank you. I'm trying to figure out what's going on inside two. Or maybe i should say really curious about continuing to watch what's going on inside you play the lali like i've never seen anyone play the ukulele before and i saw you mary with a sensibility. That is investigating your own internal process and it was clear that music is a big part of your spiritual journey in. It always has been even before the journey became or for became more consciously aware of it. Can you take back to the beginning. Can you tell us a little bit about this journey shore. I should say before we begin. I do a lot. Especially after. I've been teaching for four days straight but To give it to a straight as in on kidding as possible. I'll say that it began for me. My earliest memory in life and i've tried to remember further back but my earliest memory is sitting in my living room. My father comes home and My father was an amateur classical guitarist. But i always say it was an amateur an amatori. The one who loves. And i remember watching him come home from work after very stressful long day of working in the film industry in new york city and he came home and i remember thinking. Where did dad go. He seemed like the air had been taken out of him. You just was a little deflated. And he wasn't his usual playful upbeat self but he would sit down after eating dinner. Sit down with his guitar and he would play one chord and he would just who he was back. Smile is back and he would then begin to play A piece in my guitar is tucked away in a case far over there but he would play a piece of music. It's famous spanish ballot. I demonstrated on a ukulele but the point of the story is that i became fascinated with the guitar in the music in general because early experience of seeing the healing benefits on my father and i saw right away and that made a deep impression on me. That music is something. That's rejuvenating something that we can turn to for wellness and to To make ourselves whole again when we feel disconnected from ourselves and he taught me shortly. After that i might have been six years old i would sit in his lap and he taught me how to push down the string against the fret board. This is a ukulele not a guitar but in right away. I remember like it was this morning. The feeling of the vibrations going through my finger into my wrist into my elbow down on the floor through my sheet and it was really blissful really felt good remember laughing hysterically so he taught me how to count up the frets and he patiently taught me how to play this malady and we would eventually play together. He would play the right hand. Just play this piece of music together and after those experiences i started to get really curious about because always loved nature. I would take that same guitar into the woods. When he was at work. i would You come home and take the guitar into the wilderness. And i had no knowledge of what playing the guitar was or even interest in. What's now playing a song. Was i never heard of any musicians. Related knew about my dad.
Creating water out of thin air in the Navajo Nation
"This week. We're talking about how technology can help us. Death to climate change. The west is in a drought. That's only getting worse. And drought is an even bigger problem in places that have uneven access to water to start with in the navajo nation in the southwestern u. s. many homes have no running water at all. The tribe is working with the startup source. Which makes hydro panels powered panels that pull water vapor from the air and condense it into clean drinking water and so is president of the cameron chapter in the navajo nation. Where one family got source panels. The summer. he described the water. They make when. I was a child when we went out hunting. Small game My grandfather when the storm went through new would have craters in the ascent stone. The hell water. So we stu been over and drink the water craters in pure rainwater when i first tasted that water at this flashback to that part of my memory. So that's what the water tastes like really clean pure water by it came from the rain. Wow and is it the one family in cameron. That has them right now right now. Yeah people that don't have running water. Some of them have to drive now or and a half one way to town to get drinking water. People want waters not expensive. Sheriff you have access to the store around the corner. Yes but for us in reality. Is that going to the town of flagstaff. You're spending maybe fifty dollars on gas and other things when you go by water in town a case of water water actually caused a new round. Sixty eighty bucks you know. How often do people have to go like he. Can you estimate how much a month that might cost. And how much somebody is this. One household is saving with hydro panels. Would they would go probably three days out of the week to get water but we also have voting that still rely on their livestock cattle horses. So they're running almost Daily to haul water right more. Broadly when you look at bringing infrastructure to cameron and the navajo nation hydra panels but also like renewable energy new electric grids. Do you feel hopeful that you know. The reservation has a chance to maybe create a new vision of energy and water. That isn't so destructive one. The things about the climate change also is that we get more sunlight now and i think the tribe itself has a lot of interest in renewable energy and energy developed in our community and cameron could be sold to california and surrounding states. At the same time we also would like a smaller scale of solar energy to homestead. Are off the grid that way. We don't have to run more wires on our land which is such an eyesore to me. There's a price you pay you know. And and the price is now gonna be coming out of your pocket but are you willing to sacrifice the beauty of the land to get power. I mean do you think that could become a model for the rest of the country and other parts of world. I always tell people that are interested in in trying. Something new in cameron were willing to try it. Here be the i if it works here work anywhere

Forget Barrel-Aged Whiskey: This Company Whips Up Instant Aged Spirits in the Lab
"This is a little test. If you're a fan of craft of things that require years of patients to pay off, say a Christmas tree farm, a newly designed luxury car or an eighty year. Old Scotch time is a worthwhile investment to you on the other hand. If speed matters more to you than craft, you may see years invested in, say those Christmas trees as so much wasted time. It's much faster to make an artificial tree after all and you can still hang lights on them but what if you could have convenience and craft at the same time? Seems impossible doesn't well, not anymore at least for one particular beverage, scientific innovation has come to whiskey. There's nothing about whisky that's new. The date of its invention is a little fuzzy but historians say may have existed as long ago as fourteen hundred ad or maybe even further back than that today, the longer it ages the more expensive it is and two connoisseurs typically the better it tastes but not to the founders of silicon. Valley's bespoke in spirits, Stu Aaron, and Martin. JANACEK say they've come up with a laboratory process for making whisky and only a few days if they took my made quiz being the second group, they call the years it takes to age say mark antiquated and wasteful. bespoke spirits doesn't call itself a distillery. Rather the company is Spirits Tech Company intended to help other distillers, grocery chains and celebrities create custom spirits that can move like lightning from lab to store shelves. The name speaks to its intent bespoke means custom-made. The startup uses the lab to bring the barrel to the spirits rather than the other way around in other words, it's using material science massive amounts of data analysis to. Create spirits according to Forbes rather than putting spirits into oak barrels. The company places selected tiny pieces of wood in precise combinations in a kettle with spirits in char- heat and churn or apply again with scientific precision to mimic the aging process much much faster. The company claims they can create seventeen thousand different flavor combinations in three to five days. Most whisky is aged in barrels for about five years according to CNN. So far spoken has made whisky Tequila Rum and brandy mostly for other companies but they also do sell spirits to consumer specifically a line of different whiskies from classic Bourbons to one made with Ron Whiskey of course, the biggest obstacle, any food or drink made in a lab faces scepticism about and quality when it comes to that question bespoke in his taken home about two dozen awards from spirits tasting events since they launched early this year, that's the social proof. They think they need to grow the rest of the business, not just custom blending new products behind the scenes, but also helping distilleries rescue batches of expired beer or spirits from distributors that aren't quite right which seems. To be a good foundation for a promising business, still it's hard to grow a whole new category of anything without enough money. Early, this month, the small business one, two point six, million dollars in seed funding from hall of fame, Baseball Star Derek jeter, and Silicon Valley scientists TJ Rodgers purists may turn up their noses at spoken in America. Popular rival maker's mark is not only one of the oldest whiskey brands. Its history is at selling point founder bill. Samuel senior bought a distillery in Loretto Kentucky in nineteen, fifty three but that distillery began making whisky as far back as the early eighteen hundreds. Maker's marks message today is still it's one bottle at a time every time. And an oppression bit of copy anticipating the changes coming to the Industry today they also say it's been a widely held belief around here that character isn't made by machine. Ouch. Regardless of an expected war between purists and innovators, the time may turn out to be just right for bespoke in the pandemic is spiking demand for spirits but trade wars are making them more expensive to import according to CNN. And when you can't import easily making new spirits here, bottles that can get to the shelf in the blink of an eye could fill a growing demand. and to that investors like, Derek. JETER may well say, cheers.

"stu" Discussed on Breakfast Leadership
"We alluded to this a little bit before or is taking advantage of what's available to us today with digital marketing and social media One thing that I see some people are starting waiting to do but not as much as I thought there would be. is the aspect of video and utilizing video to reach those individuals. So you know what are some of the suggestions you have for people to Against stand out in and get in front of that person and get that meeting you want. I mean video. Video is video really interesting tool. Isn't it There's there's one one company in particular that I'm I'm really impressed with vineyard. Although I know there are others coming up vidartes allows you to record video right on the spot and embedded in your at well. I should put air quotes around in bed. But it in it you embedded into into the email that you're sending so I think that's actually pretty nice if you're going to thank someone or if you're going to say hey actually. Hey on a check in. We haven't spoken in a while. That was probably not the best message to put up. I've got value for women smoking while and you know I wanted to let you know about these things that have come up or or I was at. I don't know I was was I was attending a seminar that that I know you weren't because I was there and there's some really interesting things I wanNA share with you about that I there you end up you end up humanizing yourself now. We're talking right now. And I have a have a green screen background on where we're talking on zoom and so and that sort of formalizes everything but But you can with some of these. I think actually the most valuable things you can put into video are your your humanity and your authenticity intensity. So it doesn't have to really be a fancy not studio in the background and fancy light and so forth. It's just you being human and showing your face and you know I mean it always makes so much the difference when when I found anyway when you when you meet people face to face I whenever beat them you might be talking on the phone doing business. You could be doing it for years but if you meet in person it just has a big impact it back then and I think that's also kind of impact that That video can have as well yet found. Handed it to be helpful in in connecting with people Even conferences for example. I've gone to more than my fair share of those in the last two years but I find the conferences that went really well and I had a great time at and learned a lot and she was able to share a lot where those that. I had connect act with individuals before the conference and even a good colleague of mine I'm based out of Toronto Collier. My we've known each other for almost three years now and we've never met yet. We keep missing each other at conferences. But we've actually talked on the phone and I've been on on my podcasts. I'm going on hers tomorrow. And there's an event coming up next month's in Toronto and I know we're both going to be there so basically I'm gonNA say. Meet me by a Room B twelve and it just in hopefully make it happen because we've tried to meet up and it's so funny where someone that's around the corner from me. We've never met but I meet people that are in San Diego or London or Australia all the stuff I run into them three or four times a year and like what is but but in can I again those people when they get a personalized message. and they see the the visual of things. It's GonNa get their attention. They're going to pause for a moment and you're going to have more of their attention. Then if they're listening to of recorded voice mail or reading an email email or a letter because they might be vacuous something else. If they're actually watching a video and high Stewart's Michael here just wanted to say hello and thank you again for doing what you did and I love that you know cartoon the sat me. It's IT'S NOT GONNA put my office but it's in my living room now. Well that yeah. That's that's showing you. Hopefully he or she spouses okay with being in the living depending on what you drew but at the end of the day. It's all those things things were again. It's well as personalized things that in this day of access to everything and we can pretty much order anything we what in the world but if you get something that is unique and one of a kind type of thing. Those tend to stand out a little bit if it's personalized gift. That is truly personal. People remember that and they'll chair. Yeah yeah they do they do And God there's so many really interesting ways to give gifts I actually did. You know I'm talking about my my books but I talked to a lot a lot of authors actually for for my research for this forget the meeting and how to get a meeting with anyone one of one of my favorite sources as John Ruslan and John wrote the Book Gift Allah Jay and he's a master at giving gifts and and he showed me some of the ways that he uses knifes. Pardon me knife sets for example. Must my voice here prefer second A knife set so it he he has these beautiful set. A beautiful set of cut co knives. They're really nice nice and he'll send it to someone with with the knife block. I don't know what that's called butcherblock. I'm not sure what it is but But the block that contains the nights. Now you only get they get the the block and they get the first knife so they can put it in the kitchen and put the knife in and and then every week a new knife in the set arrives and the knives are engraved and they're they're wrapped really beautifully and before too long the spouse or the partner of the person that John's trying to reach starts asking when you going to do business with this person because it's such a unappreciated item. In the home. What's really interesting is? He's not just it's not just influencing the target of his campaign but he's influencing someone who has a great influence her the spouse or partner. That's a big deal that makes a. That's that is a great impact on decisions about things. Like why are you gonNa meet this person. You're GONNA DO Business. I love the way this person thinks. That's pretty cool. You do need to find that you you really need to think about influencing the people around influencing the influencers I should. I should say but the people around the person that you're trying to reach so you mentioned assistance a moment ago. You know I'm GonNa Bring it back to the cartoons for a moment when we send one one of those One of the big cartoon prints there it starts with a with a contact with the with the executive assistant and it's It's let's say say either rap or if I'm using it use it myself so if I'm using alcohol the the assistant I and say hi. My name is STU hynick. I wanted the Wall Street. Journal cartoonists honest and unsettling imprint of one of my cartoons in his spot. Your boss and by that time. There's usually saying really. Wow Okay so would you mind if I send. I Uni Mail with the details. Snow cautious by email address since they send the Nima with the details. And then if you wouldn't mind also get back to you with the Fedex tracking information. As soon as I have have a great. That sounds good. You send a car out. Maybe even even ahead of time to the assistant thanking generally her usually her for For their help so by by the time the big board has arrived it's actually touches and it's involved an influence here which is really really important to to the outcomes of these these campaigns. Yeah and that assistant immediately goes to the boss like you said like you know the spouse. It's the same thing it's like. I've been working with stew for well while he's a great great person. He's done a lot of great things so you need to talk with them and anybody. That has a good assistant. They're going to listen to that assistant. I know I know I did. Because while she scared me but and more ways than one but it was one of those things this where it was the point where delegation you know one of the things I talk about burnout and and things like that and I was horrible at delegation now the pendulum has swung long now. Anything lands on my desk ago. Who besides me can work on this but in that they accused me of that? Because it's true but anyway with with information that I receive I will hand it to the assistant and I'll say take a look at this. See if there's an Gotcha. See if there's anything that I should really really pay attention to. And she was awesome at that. We're still yeah. You might look at this section because she could see things that I wouldn't necessarily see just in the business of my day so the assistance and the spouses are crucial. So if you can influence them it's an it's almost like having the Golden Ticket Ear Inn Because unless it's just a complete mismatch what you're offering what they're there but if you're going to this effort to send all of all this information and try to reach this person you obviously have done your homework and you know this is somebody that I would like to work with. Because of whatever product or service that you have that would the beaten official to them or their organization absolutely It really makes so much difference you in in the actually in in my first book how to get a meeting with anyone. I devoted a chapter to assistance. Because I think they're absolutely. I know there are absolutely critical to the outcomes of these contact marketing campaigns. And just your success. You know if they're not on your side if they're on their bosses side but if they're not also on your side you're not gonna get anywhere. And so in in that one chapter I described them as as the VP of access or or or talent scouts. Either away. That's really how should they should be treated. You GotTa impress them before you ever get to the person you're trying to reach and and even even is your reaching out and connecting with the person you want to reach. What a great point Michael that you were? You're saying you would give the your assistant. These some of these pitches or materials and say take a look and see what the Gotcha if there are Gotcha. What's what's the gist of this? And something you know my priorities you know we're trying to do. Is this something we should be looking at inches. Also good as saying. Are you sure you want to put that in there That might come back to haunt you like okay. I won't poke the bear today. Let me do it tomorrow please. So I know in the book you wrap everything up with the perfect contact campaign now what I guess. What a high level suggestion where maybe let me your face it this way? What are some common mistake ceased? See People still make even after your first book that The probably prompted you to write the next book on this with some things that that you see. People Continue to to stumble on that really limits their impact as far as reaching those key people. They want to see reach well. I wouldn't say that wrote the the second book because people were making mistakes from the first People been doing amazing things and they did amazing things after the book and he took things that they took from the book and made them really really work well for them so there were great stories about how that how that came about and I would say actually the real motivation for the second second book was a lot a lot of a lot. More success stories were reporting in about using contact marketing. But I think you know one of one of those mistakes really leads me to a small part an element of the new contact marketing model which is using still using outreach methods but also adding digital persistence track to it so using remarketing ads throughout the process so before contact attack during contact and throughout the sales cycle maybe even throughout retention so just ongoing..

How much does that cost? And like are you really asking him how much is watch? It's pretty indelicate of you, whatever I wasn't words came out that clearly, by the way. And, of course, is ludicrous that not tell them how much of the wash cost of course. Now, do you have any other embarrassing Danja known better George when I came back to the broadcast table. Double-fisted gin and tonics. It is what it is stories for, for days like we literally, I could come back and do like a weekly with you guys. And just like we do stories for the next two years. I well, let's do that, for those of you who don't know. And why would you know I have an hour and a half drive home? And I have spent many of those drive homes talking to Sodano for the entire time. Like next thing I know I'm in my driveway. My wife wave me in for dinner, and I'm still on the folk would sit on. Oh, we've had, like ninety minute to our epic conversations.

Like, what makes you believe that we and he was arguing with me, like, say, come on are you crazy, like how much more four would it be? Nobody watches the game for the announcers.

"So we could broadcast from there and parties events and all that stuff because the real estate guy, I said, go out and just get like some shed in Fort Lauderdale, a place you know, care about, and we'll sell sponsorships and will tear it apart. And it doesn't matter if the house still is if it's still standing wants the week is over because it's such a dub. So I told them go out and get a dump static. I told them that like a Tuesday morning ones day morning, twenty four hours later, he said, I got your house, and I said, wow. That's awesome. That was quick. He said, I'm real estate guy. Of course, I got your house. He said, check the contracts there on your desk in your office. So I wanted to the office, and there was a contract for four days of the for Saatchi mansion. I'm not gonna say the exact amount, but I'm gonna tell you it was north of a million dollars. Yeah, yeah. He's not lying, by the way, he lamenting. And all these a bunch of famous, people showed up to the party manning showed up, very early to the party George, yes, I was the first one they're standing there dead. And I were doing a red carpet show and ally was there before we got there, though, guy. So he was just standing there looking clueless. Like that's because that's what he li- looks like. But if you remember, George nNcholas was also there and I begged him and he did it spoke to my wife for fifteen minutes. On the phone. Yeah. I also adrift with Tom Cruise Katie Holmes that, that was. Yeah. Because we ended up standing it causes so much that we rented the house out to the Redskins so they can have their party there. George. I'd be walking around that house like I was staying in the house and walked down the hallway to brush my teeth in the morning, and it was there was it was weird. Right. It was weird. It was weird, but it was a great story to tell now you know what I'm saying.

"Did stay did you just mash him up to God? I think we nailed it. We need more this hang on, George. Give me more of Stu God, I like more magenta. Magenta your name should be star. Calling me jinx, please. All right, George. Let's talk about magenta in what he was like as a boss, was he ever your boss. When did you go way back time for a brief amount of time? I wanna say. I mean it wasn't even a year before a bigger company ended up buying the radio station that Stu gods. Look, he deserves all the credit in the world because he put together something that I don't think anyone thought could ever have worked. Okay because plenty of people tried before him. So on the front end I want to actually give him credit. I'll out of this part of that's fine for real deserves because there were a lot of people that tried to create a basically the station, the station in Miami. That was like the equivalent to WFAN, for example is the original station was five sixty two QA, and there was a bunch of upstarts that tried, and never they fell by the wayside, or just didn't couldn't make it work financially or whatever. And stugatz as credit put together a dream team and he overpaid for it, and he bankrupted the poor guy station. But nonetheless, he made such a powerful station lineup. And, and just you know partnerships with the different teams that he created all that too. The point where a big radio company wanted to buy it, and they did and we survived because of it. So despite Stu gods being magenta the Lakers who backed into who may we'll probably back into Jimmy Butler, or eventually, Anthony Davis or someone like that Stu guts in, Stu gods in fashion backed into a big company buying the radio station as he was bankrupting, the guy who actually originated the radios, Dan. Now, Georgia's right like George is also a programmer. He was a program director for wwl yet. So he nine months for that. But I did put together a lineup. Well, hang on hang on. Speaking that lineup Georgia, I'm proud of you. You said to put together a dream lineup were you part of that lineup was you called yourself, part of the dream line, if you or your we had Sodano said Rosenberg boob Joe Rosamund Lebowitz, art? I mean, that's we had people who tell us, that's that's as good as any national lineup that's out there at the time and he's not lying. There were. People that said that. And then yeah. And then we you know as guys left, then we still had the core. You know that he like Joe rose, eventually left because he couldn't deal with stugatz. And the guy who he bankrupted. And then we, it ended up being the core of me. Again he left because the dolphins laughed and he wanted to fall in the dolphins. Is that right? But he also got any almost like literally almost punch out the guy you bankrupted. Yeah. Like fifty times over so the problem with the bankruptcy not to get defensive here because everything Georgia, saying Jackson, if you remember George, I told our owner to go out and get a house for Super Bowl week..

"Right. The one we like to make fun of here in LA is a couple years ago. Remember, they signed contagious, caldwell-pope, right? So contagious caldwell-pope is represented by clutch sports, which is the agency, LeBron James is represented by. So this is what I knew for sure. Lebron was coming, okay? The year before LeBron. Get you. They signed Davis caldwell-pope to a one year eighteen million dollar deal. That's not even the kicker yet. Okay. Wouldn't Pelinka starts talking about contagious, caldwell-pope and the signing with the Los Angeles Lakers. He starts quoting a bible scripture, okay? And I believe he said, it's the book of Genesis, which it even wasn't even the white book okay that he was referring to which is very much into with what you would do in that situation. Screw that part up. But I love the Old Testament. I mean you're in my wheelhouse right now with the dust George, I know exactly. So he said, he goes, it's like when contagious was on the market, and he wanted to be a Laker an paraphrasing some here. It's like Munna from heaven, and I was like can cave is called blow. Pope is mono- from heaven. Like, are you serious? He's like he's never made an all NBA team. There have been an all star. He's never even sniffed an all star games. He's from heaven like that point, I'm like could Todd? This is just more meat. You know what I mean? Like, and that's that's right there, where I said to me, he's got a little, Stu guts in them, the more you tell me about the link of the moral of I mean, again, if they were doing a remake of the movie twins, Schwarzenegger, and devito, UN Pelinka could do a version of that IB the ugly twin though. Right. You'd be the smarmy just like mean-spirited ugly. Twin and he'd be the good looking one because he looks like Rob Lowe great. God ropley. It's a perfect day to write. Pelinka. Oh my God. You Lincoln you all the way around this way, Pelinka, and you're that way. This way like that way. But Lincoln every the love of God this guy, so it's always something. And then the other day he said this thing, only I'm Asuka who covers the Lakers for. Yes, bien dot com. Asked rob Pelinka after they went from eleven to four in the lottery. What did he bring for good luck if anything to the lottery? So Pelinka instead of just answering the question, you know, like David Griffin had that little trinket, or whatever that he brought that had some sort of significant. So he goes into this long diatribe, and it's hard to like rip him for it. But it's like really is necessary. Like he says, I had asked my son who is eleven. What should I bring to the draft lottery for good luck son? He said dad just bring some optimism. He said the world needs more optimism. It's like come on, man. Not only you invoking your eleven year old son. But now you're just sitting here like you're, you're just hamming it up. Like, we don't need this. Okay. You could have just said your eleven year old son said, dad, you don't need anything. Because you're good to go. Don't even know like do we know eleven year old son actually said that should we vet that. Like that's kind of the place. We are with rob again. We all tell little white lies. But this guy tells them every day, he's you, I could tell you that his eleven year old son did not say anything close to that. Okay. Listen. I speaks like that guy. Was it none? That's why I'm telling you that there's no way his eleven year olds hunt said to absorb Pelinka at I'm proud of them. And I start to like a more and more with each passing story. He took liberties with his own words. This guy is my man. I mean he's literally like a cross between you and Confucius. Yes, I love. I listen, you might not be your Pelinka, but he's my Pelinka again. Lincoln you around. That's for sure. Wet, right. Past Confucius, because you don't know who that is.

Donald Trump today is the day that I love I love Donald Trump being the president is states because no one else would have the balls to do this. He came out and said, okay. So new own help us out of the border. You don't think it's a problem? But everybody else in America seems to think it's a problem. But you don't fact you got your sanctuary cities. So I tell you what we're gonna do. We got all these people that you just say release into America what we're going to do. Instead is we're going to transport them to your sanctuary city. And we'll just drop them off in your city. Good luck with that. Yeah. I'm interested in this. Because it's I heard it's a radical proposal this. He's out of control. You know, first they said, it was something that was floated and that was bad enough. But now the president's really really considering it. And I just want someone to ask what is the negative? Tell you explain to me what the negative is the only one I've heard is going to cost more which doesn't make any sense to me at all because they're sanctuary cities around every border in America. So you can just go to a close one. You don't have to go to San Francisco could be option. I hope it is an option. See that's the thing. It's like this is being treated as a troll right by the president United States. He's trolling them. And the trolling part as you pointed out the fact I'm gonna I'm gonna I'm going to up the ante.

Exactly eight maybe it's so fundamental to their belief that the real reason we don't wanna legal immigrants here is because race we're racists. Like, maybe that's what they actually believe. I've always thought that was just a dumb political tactic. Maybe that's what they actually believe. Because if you think the only reason we want people here don't want people, here's because we don't like Mexicans. Well, then you're an idiot. We were happy to bring legal Mexican immigrants into this country. Happy to do it. The the question here is whether we can take care of people who are illegal. So if you are saying that it's bad. It's a punishment essentially for these cities to get these legal immigrants. You are admitting foundational part of our argument. And if it's not true. Well, then you're gonna be happy. It's not a punishment. So you're not worried on the city side. How about for the immigrants is it bad for the immigrants? Will you? Tell us all the time that the sanctuary cities are the only people treating them fairly you tell us that the cities that are sanctuary cities are welcoming with open arms. These people are treating them better than the other places. So shouldn't it be if we're going to be nice to illegal immigrants are people claim trying to claim asylum that we should bring them to the cities that you identify as the only places they could be treated fairly in the United States. Yes, he's in that good for immigrants. Yes. So now, he found it's good for cities. And it's good for the immigrants. What about the border towns themselves, the border towns that are not sanctuary cities? What about the cities that they're going to these illegal immigrants or asylum seekers are going to now that are not sanctuary cities? The people who do want to enforce our immigration laws and are instead forced to take thousands and thousands of illegal. Grits that they are welcoming to them. It's not fair to them. And it's not fair to the immigrants either the undocumented immigrants because these are dangerous cities for them because they're not welcome. Like, they are with open arms in places like San Francisco in Los Angeles, and New York, and and even Austin, Texas e-e-e-e-no your ear. You got open arms. You're saying come here. What is the point of of saying, you're a sanctuary city because you're saying open arms? Hey, this is the place if you're looking for sanctuary nobody ever, you know, as Burrell didn't run into the house of The Hunchback, you know, because she's like a want some soda. Does anybody have any soda in here? No, she cried sanctuary. You can't touch me. You can't take me out of here. You can't do anything. I'm safe here. That's why. Why you have a sanctuary city your safe there every place, it's not a sanctuary city. It's very unsafe. And as we've learned nobody wants to feel unsafe. That's us safe zone for you. So we don't wanna just let them come over to places that are not save exactly. The feelings are an important part of this. Yes. And again, like, I think this can come off as a troll. But in reality don't know, if it is like, these these cities are saying, we have the resources to deal with these people we had the we we have the open arms that we haven't tight people who will accept illegal. You guys don't we're better than you. We've decided to violate federal loan to signal. Our on this issue. We should reward that behavior. I agree with you one hundred ten percent. And the only thing in the article initially, and since the only thing they can come up those two one is it's going to cost more. We don't have. Hey, it's the right thing to do. That's not put a price on the right thing to do what you do have to put as I would argue in many other cases as what you that. Congress has the power of the person there has to be money associated with these types of things, you can't just create money. You can't just print money to do this. Right. So the government doesn't care that. I do there are so many to how dare you this. What will it cost us? Not see again, you're just trolling. The proposal. I say, let's take them up on their offer. Sure, I understand that. But like they're so I'm listening to the way. I don't want to just troll in a minute. I'm going to tell you how I want this actually executed. I don't wanna just troll. I seared. Sincerely, want this to happen. I with you. Really good. I know what this program, I believe if they say there's no money for buses. I believe this audience will raise the money to bust these people to sanctuary city. Thought like, okay. Well, they're on a bus. That'll be on the bus a little bit longer will be more associated cost. I guess but first of all they're close by keep talking about San Francisco that would take a long time. But Glenn, according to at least ABC news, they're not they're flying people to these cities. They're taking their in planes at seven thousand dollars an hour that they're flying people to the cities, and they're like, well, if they have to fly them a little bit longer. It will cost more flying them. How is that? Even. Like, they're going to Indiana. They can get on a greyhound bus and go to Indiana where they're supposed to be set. And that's my thing is that rate hound bus Icee. We just get some yellow school. Whatever point though, is that the the idea that we can't hold them in our facilities, which by the way, Republicans have asked for additional facility rejected by Democrats, very Morton. Remember, so have you you have to put them somewhere inside the United States. Why would you not give them to the people who say they want them? Exactly. Right. Good. Exactly. Right. And you can do it by the way their border towns. There are places all across the border that are sanctuary cities. You don't have to go to San Francisco tomorrow, Alaska. Bring them to the closest certainly money overflights with us free Chit now. May I tell you how I would like to see this unfold. I love to hear. I will do that in one minute..

"I I actually do agree with you, which is that. What I I understand. There are times over the the years where the fans of a particular sport. Or if you take your team will get mad at me and say, you're not talking enough about my sport. Or I'll talk enough about my team. And my feeling is always been what difference does that make to anyone else? So I don't really worry about the future of golf, except that I think I do worry about the feature of and I because I think that there are people who take it ridiculously seriously, it is it is like a religious experience. But there aren't enough of us. And so I think that the sport the best thing that could happen to the sport in this country would be for to expand to more casual fans, there are very few players who bring a lot of casual Fame's to the television. Or or the golf course for that matter. Tiger Woods being overwhelmingly the first of. Those and then a little tiny bit of a few others. I think the sport is not as stuffy as its reputation, right? But I think it's reputation sort of supersedes it's reality and nothing could make something seem less stuffy than putting Stu gods in the gallery, and it letting you run about. He outside of that. All right. That is that is very well said it very gentle and kind of you agree to you said earlier, you can't really articulate what the game means to you. What is a vet means to you? And I have trouble as well. Because it was as you just said, and I've said this often, it was a religious experience in my house growing up. It just was it was just it was that it was the one week of the year. My dad got us both me and my brother into golf. It's all wondering, I it was a totally religious experience TV's on Thursday Friday, Saturday.

"Com. I wish I could leave this review anonymously. But people know, it's me, but I'll be honest, Stu was perfect. I don't have a single criticism for the guy. How could I dare to criticise a hot take master? Not only were his takes significantly hotter than anyone on the show. Including myself, but you also somehow found a way to go. I every time which having been on around the horn, dozens of times, I don't think has ever been accomplished. Typically, you go around the horn, and it rotates since the name it was really more like around the stugatz. Which would be a good show. I said at the end of the show I wanted to have him back. I wasn't joking. I meant it. He makes the show better. Just like he makes literally everything he does better. All right. Thank you. May know, I think reality nail that. Like, he nailed exactly what it is that it was going to say, by the way. Check out the meantime show, featuring her dog plenty it's a laboratory and friends a podcast network.

Quarterback from Missouri has a fifteen percent chance of being a good quarterback in the NFL. And he's probably gonna go in the first round of fifteen percent chance fifteen. Yes. Fifteen percent percents. Okay. Do you? Listen to her podcast. Now, you are a mother, I let's go to Sarah Spain. What what it Sarah sarahspain have to say about my performance. This is going to be wordy. Right. We a lot of words you're gonna blast me Sarah, Spain sarahspain, what did she have to say about my performance on around the horn, Stu gods on around the horn, a dream realized a life spent in pursuit of a goal that finally came true. Of course, it was April Fools, and it meant absolutely nothing in the show was completely off the rails and Woody paid scored about as well as I would have in second grade with rudimentary understanding of numbers points, and how games work, but that being said, I think stugatz was a champion in all the ways that stugatz is interrupted people. He didn't realize when he was being muted and continued to talk and didn't know none of us could hear him. So that when he became unneeded in yelled out. I said that we all had to inform them the commercial breaks than we know couldn't hear it because he was muted in the end. He got destroyed by his good pal. Woody who he tried to pay off the commercial break via van mo- with the old okeydoke sending Meena to the FaceTime instead of him despite him feeling like he was cruising to victory. You can't win under I try, and I really think that Stu gods was made for the show assuming that he can get his fiery hot takes into more bite size pieces that he can follow directions. Do hard work and prep study the topics. Engage responsibly and respectably with the other who am I kidding all the things I've named art things. That's that's can't do know. This is this is not a good fit for him, a wild horse cannot be tamed and stugatz needs to live and run free at stupidity. And the Dan lebatardshow was stugatz with the occasional appearance in an ill fitting suit on highly questionable. But I love you, Stu, and if you ever asked me in person if I think you should do out around the horn again. No, I absolutely going to say to your face that that the answer is. Yes. And I miss you every day. Oh, this the gods are strong in that one Sarah. I love you too. Thank you for making me feel right at home, and I will be back and I am coming to that title. Okay.

"No, I sold or any one of the panelists the way you the care that you expressed to retain, you know, it was like it was watching it was like watching Dan do HQ with his dad where he's just very patient, very respectful. And I I gotta tell you. I enjoyed them getting sappy here for a second. I told Dan it was so nice to see Tony kinda Connell. What he paid and help what he out in a tricky spot because I was saying I'd be intimidated by that entire studio and the buttons and all that stuff. And it was just nice to see Tony it, really. Well, thank you for this. This is why I'm here. I thought making TV thousand episodes ago, you know, years ago. I say to people, you know, and I'll say this to you as you appear more and more. I'm trying to make you forget you're on TV right, which may be tough because the camera loves you. And you love the Cameron. I'm not sure who loves each other more Stewart, but I'm gonna miss you. Guys. Forget you're on TV. I'm trying to get to a real moment. I'm trying to get through an authentic moment. This is how I've grown into a host. Maybe this is possibly because it's the only way I know how to live my life. You know? I mean, so I'm trying to make you forget your TV. I'm trying to go for relatable moments predictable moments. This is a little bit too much TV one to one maybe. But this is this is the secret sauce for me, you know, and and it's been thirty six hundred sixty episodes still I mean, that's an absurd number. How can a human continue to do that every single day? Well, here's how I do it. It's become it's become not my TV show. But it's become a pulse in my body. You know, it's part of who. I am. So I knew exactly what what he was going through. I knew how he wanted to play host fair day. But I knew. How frightening. It is to be host for day. Three cameras seven people in your ear. Now you've got to. Read seven tornado name, Stu gods on the show to try to take over the show. I mean, what are you? You know, we know what that is. And I knew I wanted him to to be proud of the work. He can do I wanted you wanted to be proud of the work you're gonna put out and this was a big opportunity for you. And and every time we go on it's a big opportunity for all of us. So it's being to TV show. And it's now, you know, I want to make a real moment for all of us. And how did I come to that part of it? Then actually, I know Dan in I different a lot of ways, and we're similar in a lot of ways he's trying to make the most awkward moment at all times radio television. Well, I'm trying to make the most real moment at all times and all television. And I think that's that's what maybe you got a glimpse of and you'll get more that you will. But I will tell you with all that said about us in our radio show, and Dan, and I'm happy to hear that you said, you got it from Dan because I tell people all the time, the end's, probably if not the kindest soul, I have ever met and probably the kinds of soul. I have in my entire life outside of. You know, my wife, and I'm only saying that because she's in the house. But he is he is just a kind soul. And so yes, we're always going for that. But Dan also knows he just knows me. So well, so we knows the topics and certain days where he has to just kinda not pushed so far. And and I think that's important. That's that's an important ingredient of making not just a radio show, but any show work. It's just knowing the cast around you, and knowing you know, if they're in a good mood bad mood. About TV. Let's join the squad lie. Join it for me. The most the word that comes back to and this is through having lived, you know, especially hard the last couple of years. We lost a son in delivery.

"You know? Well, and I think that's the problem is was very tight. He's a very serious across guy. The game was a blowout. And we needed someone to unleash the Stu got. So I'm not actually putting this on you. But I want to see the tape bird fly out of the cage. The next time you're in the booth for one of these McCloskey, and I'm proud of you for going, no tie. That was how I knew it was the true you in the booth, but we need to find a way to unlock the lacrosse takes. Because I know that they were there was the middle of a blowout. So I'm sure you wanted to rip somebody for a lack of effort or one of the coaches for not getting the team ready enough. And they just needed to draw out of you better. That was my disappointment. I know, and I appreciate your honesty. So let's say you give me an aid is the lacrosse analysts. Maybe downgrade me to let let's get. Let's let's agree on a total. Great here. Would you say a five or six because you didn't get the the stugatz that you wanted is that fair I still say six and a half like. I got the experience. Don't get me wrong. It's just that. I also know you guys like you said we did weekend. Observations. The other are Sunday morning radio show for a long time. So I got used to very specific brand of Stu gods. And I want the lacrosse world to meet that guy. They met the former lacrosse players to guys. I want them to meet the Sunday morning degenerates to God's try to listen to me before I get to Chris Qatar. Okay before I get to him. I I have a slate of games in front of me. And it just want to see these are the options. I have from ESPN you. I'm very excited, and I'm gonna do whatever I'm going to respond to them right now with whatever game you're calling. Okay. I have Notre Dame at Duke. That's an option. I have ruckers at John Hopkins. I have Cornell at Syracuse Virginia Duke, I assume you're doing the Notre Dame games. I also have Carolina at Notre Dame April twentieth. As an option to me, are you doing any of those games? Are you interested in doing any of those games? I interested in doing those games. I was told actually right after the Notre Dame Maryland game. Then I called we're going to have you. Back. We're really excited going to send you some options. And then they never followed up. So I'm not quite sure I didn't take that. But I'm gonna put you back off your success here. And I'm gonna certain through with circle the Notre Dame Carolina game mostly because I have such bad experiences with the Notre Dame Duke games and the amount of times Duke sent my friend's home in the NCAA tournament. Right. No way. It'd be able to be objective for that game. So North Carolina going to have to be the one. So let's say let's just pencil in right now with me, it's always pencilling and Mike you know, that let's pencil in of the bigger racer, by the way North Carolina at Notre Dame noon start four twenty four twenty. That's a great day for a while. How about that? I have that will strong at. So when a big it here is I come up to south band. You're gonna show me. The rope show me around the campus.
