America's days are done and it fed into the notion that at that time the soviet union was gonna replace america's the world's dominant power and so surely united states turn that around with especially with the election in nineteen eighty of ronald reagan where he rebuilt the american military.

After that we had one war so we completely reversed that vietnam syndrome and it only took us. Well it took us maybe ten or fifteen years to do

Former Producer and Program Director at WJOX, Pat Smith, Reminisces About the Show's Infancy
"Pat is The program director. W j. o. x. and of course he He's part of the global system trouble. I'm as i've assisted. Pd in co host. Because our good friend ryan heins program. I i'm always thinking. I had but i apologize but i'm always trying to to do things that i'm not supposed to be doing but it's really good to have you those days. I wanna i wanna go back. Because i ended up moving to a station where you. I think you were an intern But it wasn't too long after that that that you became a producer on the program. And i'm gonna let you kind of tell the story of how all of that ended up to where we are. Now oh wow Kind of a cliff. Notes version Basically like you said you're at another radio station. I think your contract had had come up and and you had Looked elsewhere and i happened to be at a news. Talk station which the sports talk. Show followed rush limbaugh's program and all the sudden you showed up Along with bob walked me at the radio station on that On that fateful I think it was a friday night after had done a show and then Just so happens. You guys came on the air on monday. I happened to be at the right place at the right time. And i was finishing up school at uab. And and you know you. And i developed a quick relationship and and decided from that point in time to kind of try to take the show to the next level and a few years later were able to get syndicated throughout the state of alabama and then mayor obviously sirius xm and then ultimately espn and where you are today at the sec network so just very blessed to be part of it from day one. I want to go back to that moment. Where we were on the affiliate in we are on the station in birmingham. And and you really started thinking You know bigger picture. I i was. I was at the time doing local television. I was still riding a newspaper on. So i i wasn't that the forward thinking but You thought to show could go beyond that area and what was so interesting about it. Is that once. it did There were a lot of people that that thought. Your idea was was insane. Now you're right You know it's so hard and difficult to tell people about this. Because i remember paul when the fax machine became you know a prevalent thing and offices and i never forget when we started getting stuff backs to us like before you came to the radio station because typically you would either be at the newspaper finishing up a column ridgetop by tv station. Then he committed the radio show and people around the south east would be faxing us newspaper articles because we didn't have internet internet was not invented yet. And so it was fascinating for us to be able to to get information from outside of the state of alabama and so that kind of up some different topics that we could do on the show and the one that started thinking. Well you know what you know. People outside of birmingham. We're on a five. Thousand watt am radio station and more people need to hear this program because we're inundated by voicemails and people you know would communicate with us anyway. They could until it's how much they love the show and more and more of the show and so at the time was able to go to to management and and pitch the idea of potentially getting on a few stations in the state of alabama. And that just kind of steamrolled and for many many years we kept adding stations and at one point we had. I believe in the mid thirties before we got on sirius. Xm so it was just a it was a great time in radio and we were very fortunate to have the people that believed in us. Just like you believed in the idea. So it will. And i'm gonna come back to some of the early stories but but i think for i want you to comment on this. I'll never forget. I was in pasadena We're actually newport together for the rose bowl national championship game between alabama and texas. And because i think a an illness in your family with I think your wife's mother or something you weren't able to make the trip and called me out there and you told me that You had gotten a call from somebody at sirius. Xm and i really. I thought you were kidding Because they wanted to run the show as a regular in an in an afternoon time slot in. And i want you to go back to that moment because there was a buzz around our Our crew at the time. And we you know. We have a fairly big crew now because of television and radio. I don't know if even matches the number of people that you had working with that particular moment in time. Because they were they were producers. They were Exa- they were assistant producer. They're dedicated phone. Screeners that That had their own contracts. But i did but i mean would you would. You agree That was the moment that things really started to change. No there's no question about that. And i'm glad that you wanted me to tell about this out of the story because i thought you were going to publicly remained me again for putting you outside the rose bowl at a outside party music. Play okay No no i was. I got i gotta call the blue Someone that are not you know. Never heard of before and they just said you know we'd love to show We want to talk to you about this show going. You know. Nationwide siriusxm You guys be interested in that. And i are you kidding me absolutely and then i remember calling you in pasadena and said you'll never believe this phone call and of course a lot of times like you would whether i'd call you and say hey. We got this coach on today or we got this happening today or whatever the case may be you know you a would you know i can picture you rolling your eyes going. Yeah whatever you know but then it finally sunk in it. You know. Once i told you exactly the full conversation and i think at that point in time you realized that we had we had a bigger entity on our hands than we thought. We did back then
Emerging Opportunities and Exciting Business Lessons with John-Paul Iwuoha
"Now. We are talking about africa. I wanna know john paul. Why why do we need to keep africa on our radar very interesting question. So one one thing that keeps me. Loyal to entrepreneurs on fire is the quality of stories and experiences of ultra preneurs. Who've made it that's one big reason. Why listen and. I'm also sure that's why many people listen to the show but interesting is what being on entrepreneur means that you're able to live in the now and also prepare for future so it's almost impossible to think about the future and nothing about and here's why when you look at the population of the world. Africa correctly has the youngest population of people. Right now sixty percents of people on the continent of the age of twenty five. So this is more or less looking at china. Before china became china up to date china more or less the second biggest economy in the world the factory of the world and all of that so you can imagine that people who saw china. The china became china. Actually the ones who got in on the meat of the game. So that's exactly what africa represents but more importantly there have been events in the past couple of years that have put africa in the centerpiece. The very most the most recent one which is very interesting is covid now all the time most companies have built their supply chains around china and south east asia but then when it hits it was obvious that supply chains with very vulnerable. And if you're going to diversify your supply chain. It's impossible not to look at africa if you're looking at affordable label if you look at them. The truck symmetry of the continental either north america or europe. And what are the means. Most countries on the continent either speak english or french and these are more or less global line. Which is you're going to penetrate any of the big markets and. It's really now happening. Because what the chinese are doing is the chinese. Market is starting to specialize in advanced high-tech stuff. I most of those low cost production that brought business the whole of storing from america. When are beginning to see going to places like vietnam. Bangladesh and other countries in southeast asia. But then you cannot forgo a population of one point three billion people which is what africa presents and what we're seeing is some companies setup accretions within the african continent places like rwanda at the opium ghana senegal. And what they're doing is they are preparing. These guys are digging for the future and one interesting. That's happened in the last four years in america. Is the people in africa. So in america when you think about africa the image that comes to mind is charity and philanthropy. Africa needs. Needs help and help and help. So the approach of the americans this time and even europe has been to help africa give africa aid. Give them all of that. What the chinese are doing is they're coming with more or less trade and business and things. What africa needs really because you have this population of very young people enterprising people. I mentioned that sixty percent of the world's uncle beats at arable. Land is in africa so in most parts of the world with maxed out the land space. Yes we're doing. We're using technology and other means to increase the yield on the land. But when we're talking about virgin space. Federal land arable land. Most of it is still in africa. Still cultivated and we're looking at a global population that is set to double back at least by the time we reach two hundred fifty or more according to the un and if we do not keep pace with globe with population growth would amount of food were producing then the world is going to be faced with serious threat of hunger so these are just a few examples of why africa needs to be on your rita. Yes so thinking about now. It's great but you're thinking about the future you need to remember that even before could hit five of the top. The top ten fastest growing economies in the world when africa. These are not really things. We've seen the mainstream media. Why i'm happy that chain. Is that the approach of the chinese in africa. Doo controversial is a big difference. This guy's coming here boots on the ground and they're dealing with the market. The previous relationship with africa has been to deal with africa's governments give african governments money for age and they develop africa unfulfilled years. It's never happened instead. It's helped enhance corruption. A sense of entitlement and dependency so most of the problems never get so because that's free money free money fluent in from europe money flowing in from north america so what people like us exist to do is to show that the people we should be voting. For with our money is the entrepreneur's they're the ones who have the incentive and the motivation to really solve africa's problems and guess what's global money starting to call me and i'm sure many ago minova listeners. On on on entrepreneur no stripe the big global player in in payments strike just acquired an african company. Niger company for two hundred million dollars. That's a major exit and it's stories like this that are starting to prove that africa is not a charity case. Africa is opportunity. The programs are trying to solve through eight. Actually need to be solved through entrepreneurship and the process. We create more jobs more wealth and greeted big happier world john. Let's talk about what you see as the most interesting opportunities that exist right now. I mean you talked about a lot of opportunities. I love how you really are hammering home. The fact that entrepreneurship is what is going to turn africa around and really bring that continents into the as we move forward into twenty twenty one and beyond but specifically what are the one or two most interesting and fascinating opportunities in the business world that you're seeing right now. The first interesting one is more or less. I talked about it earlier. In terms of africa's potential to produce food because right now we're looking for the next food basket of the world and one interesting that africa offers is the or what's we've we now know as superfoods so for example there's a grain that's grown in west africa. It's a green code for new now. This green is so rich in cultural significance for example when the tombs of ancient in jim ships are more or less opel excavated amongst other materials. Like honey. and things like that four new for new f- who is one of the greens that it that the ancient egyptians actually put in the the pyramids in the borough chambers of dead feroz. That's tell you how important it was back. Then this is like one of the longest growth one of the greens has been grown the longest in history almost five thousand years now. The reason why new is important is when you look at the american market and european market more or less developed world and you see how important health and wellness is this all about eighteen. Organic food. Gluten free food and things like that you announced that to see if like for new is actually superfood but in africa is grown by people in africa eating by people that i start to see what america has done with them a green assira like we know what which is more or less breakfast zero before quinoa became like a blockbuster serial in america it had the same profile as phone. You in south america. So what we're beginning to see. Is they celebrate to ship in. New york is named spear pm. He's now taken for neo his packaged.

You know to distribute this kind of food and new just one. I know listeners may be familiar with moringa which is another superfood. it grows in the wild in africa. We really take you for granted over yet. But then we've sent entrepreneurs coming here and repackage it into something that selling like a lot because it resonates resonates with the health and wellness movements the big trend going on in the

We have this is a very broad region of ten countries of different size from giants like Indonesia to minnows, , like Brunei to have been diverse reactions, , but broadly speaking I think there's a lot of frustration with the trump administration the way it's being on the one hand increasingly unilateral and unpredictable. . But on the other hand, , there's this fear of US abandonment if you like in a long-term leaving the region to. . Gemini so I think we have to understand. . It's a complex picture, , right? ? So the US has to treaty allies in southeast, , Asia Thailand, , and the Philippines and they've been amongst the countries that are most China friendly and most frustrated with the US government in recent years be while we see a former. . FO- like Vietnam there's being one of the most receptive of the US approach to. . Try and run the loss years. . So it's quite complicated I. . Think the real risk here is that the US government and to a lesser extent that I'm camera believes that it's more assertive stance on China is appreciated in the region and I think that's really not necessarily the case because at the end of the day like Australia. . But most South East Asian countries China is that biggest. . Partner, , as well as being geographic neighbor is that you're reading to Huang given the Vietnam of course has been just mentioned is a Cold War Foe of united, states , but in in the face of verizon charts getting closer to Washington. .

The anxiety about China's and China's might <hes> end as you mentioned, , they've gone through A. . Competition to window call when they have still vivid memories of that. . So <hes> in overall I think they they do have anxiety. . There is a pronounced anxiety about the intensifying great-power competition that might. . Lead to similar way of asking them to choose sides like was in the Cold War but I think all of them want to keep both China and us in the region a engaged. . Also not too. .

A little bit of competition is good for them but took much competition can be nervous. . Let's bring it to Indonesia Ben. . There's your name subject at the end of last year Indonesia and China had a face off over the ownership of the Natuna islands which are in the southernmost part of the area of the South China Sea claimed by China. . Where does Jakarta stand on China? ? Now it's an, , it's an interesting question <hes> building a wall who was just talking about because we look at Indonesia's president. . Jerko with widow known as Jacoby, , I've just written the first English biography of him the plug in that. . He he is an economy I president. . He is someone who is above all interested in creating more jobs, , getting more investment into Indonesia, , and especially during a time of covid nineteen when the economy's really collapsed and Jacoby is a transactional leaders that he wants those who are bringing the most money with fewer conditions and right now that is China Chinese state-owned companies. . Chinese. . Private companies like qualify as well. . On, , the other hand of course, Jacoby , has to be seen to be defending Indonesia's sovereignty and we have had these clashes over fishing rights. . I have access to certain waters that you mentioned. . So I think when those of come to head, , Jacoby has made a symbolic stance. . He's gone out to the tune of see visited the islands gone onto ability ship a symbolic declaration. . He's going to defend Indonesia's sovereignty but by in laws you trying to stay away from these. . Geopolitical issues to play down the tensions with China said of the economic relationship can keep developing. So . it's a really difficult balance and I think there's also a shift that's potentially happening in Indonesia. . So the old guard if you like in the Foreign Ministry and the government in the military, , they really view above all other things strategic autonomy on non-alignment as being the key for Indonesia. So . don't get into any alliances don't get too close to any one power but. There . isn't new of God if you like coming through increasing, , you think Indonesia needs to be a bit more active about engaging with potentially the US Australia, , the Europeans Japanese to try and balance out the region. . But for now are really think with Jacoby in the hot seat it's the economy I put the geopolitics aside at the end of the day that's a positive for China, , but it's not an open and shut case because the had been long been tensions. Between . Indonesia and China. . So Jacoby like a lot of other leaders in the region, , we'll have to find this delicate balance, , but it's getting harder and harder and Huong Vietnam your nation. . Let's talk about that. . It's been pushing back against Chinese expansion in the South China Sea, , which threatens Vietnam oil drilling and fisheries, , and of course, , it's had an ongoing dispute about water flows in me congresses where China has built dams stream at tell us more about Vietnam position on China. . Is Getting nece position on on current China is also a frustrated I. . Think at Phnom has gone grew proably among all in countries have had the longest history of interaction with China and most cases where it was trying to defend its own national sovereignty and resist China's expansionist tendencies. . So it's been ingrained in Vietnamese National Psyche I would say current us of China Sea conflict to end disputes are only. . One of the examples of that, , but it is similarly with others opposition countries, , which is it's harder and harder to seek more peaceful avenues of dispute because it is a strategy in the South China Sea is among others was to include the direct dialogue with China but that is not really much come to help <hes> these days with Chinese expansion expansionist tendencies. . Now, you , mentioned also on which is very important. . Aspect in the relationship. . Phnom is at any of the lower mccown and China, , is a deal a top of the upper and it's projects of a building dams and not only in China, , but a call goes invest in dance in now Cambodia Yaman and Thailand that blocks blocks the water flow blocks were flow of the river, , which is very important for agricultural conditions in. .

Security threat to the food safety and food security of the region. . So it is quite a leverage that China can have on the lower <unk> countries including at Phnom follow question to Ben Bland. . Given what you said earlier about the relatively nuanced in measured response of south. . East. . Asia towards the United. States . if you like trying to ride two horses simultaneously. . What happens if China's rise continues on, , abide it and seeks to dominate the region and America as the acting regional hegemony on goes to great lengths to stop China from dominating is where do you think? ? Will be of Southeast Asia then it's it's really hard to say how things go election coming up in the US very soon, , I think that could have a big impact on how how things go in the. . Trump and pretty anti-china. . There's really a difference in degree rather than just shooting Washington goes to great lengths to stop China what they. . In, , that scenario. . All I think I think we're probably not GONNA get to a situation where South East Asian countries have to choose one side of such. . But what they will have to do is face an increasing number of difficult small choices about what technology they use in their mobile networks about what military exercises that willing to do about what investment projects say yes or no To so life will get tougher and tougher for the region, , but I don't think at the end of the day. . Any of the countries will be willing to join an alliance either with the US or with China. . So they're going to keep trying to find the space in the gaps in between to try and exploit competition for the best interest if you're looking at. . The longer term picture I think there's ways the big affair of the US just turning back inwards and the ultimately that the trump presidency. . The rise of trump is probably a symptom of the issues in the US which are gonNA lead to a turning inwards and maturing of the US as a power being less influential pretension in Asia and the rest of the world. . So, , it may not be a question of China in the US coming to a head but the US rhetoric increasing the US pretend you withdrawing from the region

I think I think the on all of us to share like more solutions rather than just you know poising. kind of like fight questions or rhetorical questions that people also feel to meet up in Boston role, especially mainstream media although we may see you. Mentioned my dad's DAB at is do. Connect and target those who? Know no decision makers and My Mom sees spots. On the TV like Allen Wow. EASTBOUND is is on the TV. Okay, so de perception is different. The mall senior. Ride I had a friend the day. WHO works a lot with government and hey, hey told me about immediately. City sent through from from the government to like who should say the stuff the campaign. They're working together and he was like man. You wouldn't believe like it's mainly newspapers and TV. That's who these guys are rating like if you're if you're like, you grew up knowing what you know and that's why so many of these companies will be sponsoring a football team because the person who sixty five, who's the global head of brand marketing has grown up with all his whole life by spoil, something like that and have as sports didn't exist when he was a kid in the fifties, the sixties. You know the similar with my with my parents as well you know that will vote in the sixty s like that with games game simply win thing that existed that, so they much more likely to be inclined to follow these football league or something like that, too, so we just don't. Don't have those opportunities available to us any right. Like I had a great chat. We thumb talent manager management. You manage to mega influences here in Australia and she was saying the same thing to like one day. One of talent Brang her. There will always on the I, was on the morning news and she's like college. You get you get more in a day than that more radiation does doesn't amount, but admit so much that person that they are used channel. It made them legitimate. Might them real and and even like I had my mom, she sent me an article yesterday about about sports and I was like. Allow these articles truly mainstream because she's saying. She shared it with me right. Into the same experience and I believe even Rotas and. Even Bloomberg! They've just hired some gaming people to write on. A Bloomberg came out. Yesterday it came on. The high. The gaming journalists to join team talk more about. The spots, so you see that happening even cross. SPN going full on Renault it Valerien. Eh, YEAH ESPN! Fantastic! Joe Brought compared to. Many of these sports organizations that have tried sports media. Oh exhibit tried to get into that, and and failed miserably but I think as peon seems to be doing a fantastic job, so what's? Like like what's what's Day. I look like the fallon now with this the regional marketing job teiken. How like how many weeks are you into it? is probably my my. Week that requests started on. or on. April and. I'm like connecting that allowed brands that also. Came from a brand new. And also the media people generally as well as conducting mainsteam mainstream media to chair about. General and also by Abbas. That's a lot of opportunity still. Leading East he's a big thing, right? What as many people who had yet a spectrum? So, that's why we need to connect with them. even just distract when I was talking about mainstream media. You got readjust coming in even the Bloomberg and Guardian has on eastbound vertical now so it's getting really big hopes to say. And we went in for a Stralia and I'm trying to also in Southeast Asia and we have a few eastbound generalists go in mainstream media, already and game s yeah, and just want to check. Copper having spots tournaments now seen. Down Right and the night with your colleagues, so we can do something in Australia. Yeah the show, yeah. I've definitely seen some like that. Because even you know I think it was the example from KPMG. What are they? What do they have a couple? A couple thousand stuff in Australia like a maintenance more than Simonet sports tournaments have as a Holland's people playing in them. Yeah, I think like I definitely wanted to touch on what you said before. As well as very important, there's a lot of. There's a lot of disrespect think from as Bolton influence people towards traditional media in a way. Have this golden nugget. We've got these meeting. That's growing you. GUYS ARE GONNA. Be Dead Soon. You suck, but without realizing that like yeah, you can cheat on them all you want, but they've gone thousands of employees chaining hundreds of millions of dollars that will always context, and also they have their executives have forties experience in the industry. Industry for a raisin like not every executives aid because I've stepped people in the back. Backlash happens in the movies like there are a lot of good people at work that, too. So maybe there are some things that once you can connect with them. They can open doors for you. And that's the point of you know I may talking paper like Ben Parsons and and with Christian Austin at KPMG and Andrew Walton. Mentor, who has a sports textile that sixteen years? It was a startup, but you know well. This is because they can open doors like Andrew Woke me straight into baseball baseball called him and said injury. We want to do something in east bullets gaming. Who Did we talk to? He said well Chris is the guy you know you need you need these kind of prospected people in the industry to open those doors the same way that you own not. You're not going to accept some random person linked except they peach. They said the same way that Domino's is not just going to accept some random. Twenty eight year old kid like may just messaging out of the blue, because it'd be like who the hell you like. We spend millions of dollars a year to these agency.

Make the sale and you need to understand the timings of when they get solved and and the batches and what they care about. You know similar. Similar take kids more about logos cool CFC has more about a long term relationship still take kids more about sponsoring grassroots and increasing the perception of their brand with coal say as more about philanthropic efforts and things like that like you know, it's all of these things that these companies understand that we died, and that's why it's awesome to say Lacombe like over in the UK with Excel. They die took the previous CEO of Finnick previous. co-ceo for. The marketing director at it s across like that's perfect, because imagine how many contacts that added ESCO I comes with a very much likely very likely knows senior directors at Nike. He very likely knows the REBAC senior directors. You obviously knows at it s and then working with that it s. he's always see friends with people in the as France paypal in soccer. He's friends with people in football, so he knows all these his of people as well that.
