Podcast Critic and Creator Wil Williams Shares Her Origin Story
"Hello and welcome to a bonus episode of inside podcasting the show in which creators discuss their craft. I'm your host Sky Pillsbury. A few weeks ago I posted a post show episode in which my podcast friend, Ariel Nissim flat, and I discussed my interview with podcast critic and Creator. Will Williams during that episode, I revealed that due to technical mishap will and I actually recorded twice the interview with will, that I, shared with you a few weeks ago was our second recording. Today's episode is the first eleven or so minutes of our original discussion which I was able to salvage despite the technical mishap. So today, I'm releasing it for all of us here I. Hope you enjoy it. Will Williams. Welcome to the show I am so happy to have you with me today. I have been. Thank you for having Oh. Absolutely. I. Have Been Intrigued by you ever since I came across your posts on twitter you're one of the first people I came across where I don't remember what you were saying, but it was surely opinionated and. Could. It could have even been. You know a useful rant. I'm not really sure but I immediately knew this is someone that I want to pay attention to this is someone that I wanNA follow. So. For me to get a chance to just dive into who you really are because of course, at this point I have had the chance to meet you in person and we have had. Interactions they're still so much. I don't know and I have a lot of questions. So I read somewhere that you started listening to. Night. Vale and Lime Town that that might have been your first introduction to podcast. Is that right? So that was my first introduction to fiction podcasts by I was one of those people where I was listening to podcasts in a more general sense before I pods were even a thing I was downloading them on my desktop computers and listening whenever I could back in those early days of I tunes but Lime Town and Night Vale were definitely my biggest introductions to fiction, which then launched me into writing. So when you're listening to the other podcast prior to that, what happened that was different when you listen to night villain lime town that led you to feel like Oh maybe I wanNA play a role in this. In Twenty twelve, twenty thirteen. There were a bunch of fiction podcast being made and because I guess I kind of raised myself on traditional nonfiction podcasting things like radio lab and grammar girl and writing excuses when fiction podcast starting to make stir I was unfortunately in the camp where I thought that they were going to be good that they would be kind of. Poorly, produced or poorly written or kind of tacky. So I just didn't latch onto them, which is so embarrassing to see now. When I listened to night neil well, that's fascinating to me because of course. so closely to the genre. Yeah. When I heard Night Vale, it was kind of more of the same kind of thought of it as the exception to the rule, and I think part of that is because I was so set on this idea that you know all fiction podcasts kind of sounded like basically like a prairie home companion in my head that's what I was comparing it to and I liked that night failed did something so different in. So weird I mean this was again like. Twelve thirteen twenty thirteen, and back then lgbt representation, which is something that I think a lot of people fiction space take a little bit for granted now, not that we couldn't still be better, but we really had so little of that in an accessible fiction format and the main relationship in that podcast is between two men and later would go on to have trans characters and it felt really revolutionary to me and growing up in Arizona and specifically being in Phoenix for most of my life I. Latched onto. The weird desert setting usually the desserts here are basically exactly as bizarre feel feel feels like a documentary sometimes. I thought of it. Yeah. As like the exception to the rule I liked it but I didn't think it would be into more efficient podcasts but when lime town came around and my friend introduced me to it. I mean, it sounded incredible and I was working in my college radio station. At the time I had tried my hand out a little bit of production. So I knew how much went into it and it just sounded so good. They loved the writing and I've always been one four character study is and that's basically what town is like there is the mystery to it, but it's mostly vignettes of these fascinating characters and he just fell in love and then from there I just kind of dove headfirst into all the fiction I could find, and now here I am. So, you were at college at the time right were you what were you studying? Did you have parallel paths going like I'm interested in radio and I'm working at the college radio station but I- majoring in something completely different. Something completely different. I. My Undergrad degree is in English education. I was very bent on being teacher. I just worked at the college radio station for fun basically, and then you Kinda fell in love with and the more I fell in love with audio the more I fell in love with working at the station. And then I did my semester of student teaching. I graduated I worked as a substitute teacher for two months. End then hated it never been You hate it why? I loved teaching proper is loved being with the students but honestly I think that I was. I got way too emotionally involved in all of my students and to to this day. I still think back on students during that semester student teaching and wonder if they're okay

Phase 1 Renovations Begin On Boston City Hall Plaza
"Boston City Hall Plaza is getting a major makeover. The city broke ground on a $70 million renovation project Easy. Suzanne Sausage has more. This is the people's process. And if it's the people's Plaza mayor Wall says that means everyone. Khun, Go there. We heard from thousands of Bostonians. They told us that they want this place to be a place where the whole community gather. The renovations include a new civic building on Congress Street with a public bathroom and city counselor Ed Flynn says, With this month being the 30th anniversary of the D A. It's the perfect time to make sure the plaza is accessible to people with disabilities. Time like the present to do something to make changes that should have been done a long time ago. The renovations are expected to be done within two years. Suzanne Saz Vale W. B Z Boston's news
Collaborating to Cure Dementia
"Many of us will have to deal with dementia at some point in our lives whether as a patient or caregiver this terrible range of conditions affects five to eight percent of the sixty and older population at any given time. According to the World Health Organization the Dementia Consortium of Private Charity Partnership that Charles River joined last year is one of the organizations leading promising research on dementia treatments in order to discuss this condition and the research to treat it. I am joined by Sarah Almond Associate Director of integrated biology. Welcome Sarah Hi. Can you explain the purpose and organization of the DEMENTIA CONSORTIUM DEMENTIA Is SETUP BOY A? K. or outside research she k. Is a charity that focuses on. Alzheimer's disease it brings together. Active research is Pharma partners. Sarah's including Chelsea River in order to bring forward novel treatments dementia including outlines disease outside reset she. Kabc this research is invited to come forward with ideas for novel targets in Europe. Degeneration Your Inflammation Way. Them work with them to put together. What packages the funded by the partners? Anti Kate to prosecute he's talk and hopefully lead to novel treatments for Dementia. What do you think of the way? They've set up their organization. I think this is a great way to stop the organization because it brings together such a broad range of experience From academic researchers may have spent years really understanding the biology of targets to pharmaceutical companies. That know how to bring targets three two treatments actually effective in the clinic and also is a CRI where we have a broad range of so biology and chemistry capability so we cannot provide the word packages also have extremely experienced. Research is catchy. Help develop the molecules to treat these young coupled with the charitable input of the Vale Uk. He Project managed but also do so much to bring forward research in this area. Yeah absolutely cut covering all the bases. So what is Charles Rivers role in this group? You mentioned a little bit and you go into a little more detail. Charleston is WANNA to Communist with capabilities and drug discovery expertise. We provide strategic input into plans to de risk these targets and how to generate tool molecule suitable testing the hypothesis. We went with Alzheimer's Research K. And the principal investigator to proposals together. That income dreams that executed by then the appeal and US working closely together. They may do the basics. Hogging island allergy and we bring medicinal chemistry or HD CAPABILITIES. That actually will enable us to find a joke against that tailgate. We meet with the foul partners to finalize plans. And then once funded. We actually execute the work. Okay awesome I understand that a couple of research projects from the consortium have already been green lit Can you explain those proposals? She'll you're correct to Russia in progress of the two targets. One is fine as the Scott appears to link to Tau Accumulation ear inflammation. We aren't sure whether we need to be selective over a closely related kind as the. Pi is looking at whether ACHSAF. You've reduced this target. That doesn't indeed impact Taufel are. They should be China in Vivo. Mostly of onto molecule and vacation and which is a specific type of dementia or Alzheimer's. Or is that just a general Assignments towel face but particularly Alzheimer's disease at the eventual Gulf one is to the impact of the tour the killer produce on time phosphorylation. In an in Vivo model than the second project is two gene mutation I l s from tempo dementia the courses of pathogenic Rene to be produced. And we're aiming to block the expo this RNA. By targeting his with the protein takes out the Chris into the cell. When this new mix and Rene is exploited toxic repeat protein produced which then up today so responses and Kohl's neurodegenerative disease so the talk if allegations. This is actually already fairly strong. So we'll focus on producing told molecule capable of testing the hypothesis drug ability in Viva. And this is quite interesting that uses Zebra Fish Assay which is as a Pi Out Annika's scrap. The compounds can reduce the interaction between the protein. And the mutant. Aren a over So vice projects Charles River going to rub in Asia screen and then performed medicinal chemistry. Touchy try and get the molecules to kind of test with the viable targets. So how exactly is the consortium supporting this work on on these two proposals? So the consortium consists of Pharma Partners K. And they weren't. She formed kind of equal partners within that and they provide funding the project so they've also provided their expertise in kind of defining the key risks that we need to address in our plans and also technically hurt entice for example as I was research to see progress against small Stein's out payroll Consult here as a whole. I understand our work on dementia has increased substantially over the last year or. So is this because of a higher demand for treatment or is it more promising research avenues. Or is it both. I think by This been advances in understanding of neurons. Lemay tion in particular so this is triggered research projects. But also there's a shift away from the amyloid focused approaches for outside disease due to a lack of clinical success but equally dementia is still highly prevalent in and loss of US. Know people that'd be personally affected by this August. Just it's very hard Eric Tree but not one which people are going to give them. What is the importance of collaboration for researching these neurological diseases? They understand that. Probably the REAL STRENGTH OF THE CONSORTIUM. I think just touches found that there are Kiama nays area The SIS for those lost focus hasn't been successful in the clinic so it's clear that novel therapeutic approaches and needed and this takes time so rarely. We need different people to work together. Different functions work together so farmer actually reduce what they do in house and choose to those complex in return. Viva studies take years to fully establish in Zeros and so when academic academia follow charities and see arose all have complementary skill sets the they they research can be three to benefit the patient in the minimum time possible. Is it also a matter of the fact that CNN diseases are so complicated? And there's so many different factors going into the Mike. No one can be an expert in enough of the different areas of research to really do absolves ex exactly not. Yeah you know. And and so just by the nature of scientific institution you may get more time to focus on specific disease mechanisms. That PHARMACEUTICAL COMPANY. Just doesn't have the kind of time to dedicate starved to really building that level understanding but they may have a much broader range of complex models. That can actually help advance. This yet come has been unfortunately so we can you tell me about the psychiatry consortium which I guess is kind of an offshoot of the dementia consortium. Yeah it's it's basically has the same structures dimensions. Timonen is formed in consultation with a K. Who a kind of had a stake in his on. Psychiatry example schizophrenia or autism and this is obscene medicines discovery cats who are not for profit and are there the cats ponant which was set innovate UK to support innovation and use by UK business? So the psychiatry console is one of the indicates which is accelerating drug discovery and psychiatric
Trump asserts his power as 'total' to reopen country
"Of the World Health Organization says he thinks president trump is supportive of the agency despite the president's claim the administration's looking to withhold funding as it looks for fault in the timeline of the handling of the pandemic this comes as the agency warns now is the time for vigilance as countries look for exit strategies from lockdown measures as you know the United States is actually the largest contributor to W. H. H. O. O. and and I I have have met met president president trump trump a a number number of of times times before before starting starting from from twenty twenty seventeen seventeen and and recently recently where where we had a cool conversation two weeks ago and what I know is that he's supportive and I hope but the funding to W. H. O. will will continue and the relationship we have is is a very good and the we hope that this will continue but by no means does that mean that it's all over now is the time for vigilance now is the time to double down now is the time to be very very careful and that does not mean the country's cannot begin to create an exit strategy it doesn't mean that countries shouldn't be actively planning to do that but as the director general said there are them in in that sense there are there are things that need to be done you can't replace locked down with nothing you must replace locked down with a very deeply educated commission is empowered and engaged community we are going to have to change our behaviors for the foreseeable future residents from says along Vale is planned gradually reopen economy this week even as some states form their own coalitions to not plan that when asked about governors having the authority president trump said the following our specific other issues a stay at home the president not much because not many businesses he's the president of the United States the authority is total and that's what's gonna be the first governors now we have a couple of bands of excuse me just give me a call did you receive our you have a couple of bands of of the democratic governors but they will agree to it they will have the authority of the president of the United States having to do with the subject we're talking about is total Connecticut governor Ned Lamont pulling no punches in calling out the president's claim I heard that present going to throw verbal hand grenades and died two weeks ago we told your brother and myself I want a mandatory quarantine your actual policy area and we call them up and talk them down we got something a lot more reasonable doubt two weeks later once a mandatory opening up of everything I just think you like system run down these rabbit holes you're right the governor is going to make the determination of what's best for their state we care deeply about the health and safety of our citizens and we're gonna get our economy going in our program thoughtful way now he's got the bully pulpit but we're the ones that have to enforce everybody knows that the governor's where the rubber meets the road I think every governor knows what it takes to get it done just like you said when I'm on a mandatory quarantine York city we had to say Mr president there are a hundred twenty roads not to mention ferries railroads in and out there's no way to do that and he didn't do it how do you courtesy of CNN president trump's claim that he could force governor's hands comes after he left it to them to make decisions about stayed home restrictions and worked as a back up to the states responses

The Ghost of Eva York
"Continuing the investigation into the paranormal metaphysical world. Last week. I interviewed internationally known Psychic Medium Sharon our week before a psychic and clairvoyant. From right here in Ashland Oregon. These people talk to people who are deceased and on the other side of the Vale so to speak so I thought it only appropriate today so talk about a haunted hospital. In the state of Oregon. The Oregon State Hospital took two years to build and was completed. Eighteen eighty three and opened as the Oregon State insane asylum but by eighteen. Ninety one it house. Four hundred seventy eight male and two hundred twelve female patients and two additional ways were constructed to accommodate the influx at the time the most common cause of insanity was in temperance masturbation religious paranoia by nine thousand nine hundred. According to hospital documents over five thousand patients had been admitted census opening while two additional women's wards and four new. Men's wards were added to the main building miles of tunnels connecting that more being constructed beneath a narrow gauge railroad was established that allowed the hospital transport patients between buildings without the public observing as note the state capital and associated. Buildings also have a tunnel system to this day but they have never been connected to the State Hospital by one thousand nine hundred seventy five with the opening of the dommage and eastern Oregon state hospitals and patient. Transfers to these facilities the residency had been lower significantly and the superintendent allow shooting of the movie. One flew over the CUCKOO's nest entirely inside Oregon State Mental Hospital known to only a few a small law in the basement that contain thousands of copper urns filled with the cremated remains of inmates. It was Oregonian newspaper that I brought the room of forgotten souls to light in October. Two thousand three and two thousand six newspaper won the Pulitzer Prize for the story. While Oregon State legislators debated what to do with the airlines between nineteen thirteen in one? Thousand Nine hundred. Seventy one over five thousand. Inmates were cremated quite a problem. In two thousand five hospital records were found indicating that in eighteen eighty nine inmate. Either York was found in a bathtub. Dead even was thirty six year old. Marion County woman.

According to old newspaper clipping from the era she was an epileptic confined to the hospitals asylum era epileptic ward five years before her death in those days malady like depression. Alcoholism was viewed as Kintu Insanity. Eva died between two and three. Pm on Tuesday Past Day in the epileptic ward while left unattended in a tub. She had a seizure died from it.

Internationally known Psychic and Medium Sharon Bauer
"Welcome Sharon and thank you for taking the time out of your busy schedule to thank you kid. I really appreciate this opportunity to share with you as well as your listeners. The parts of my book that I think are really important to be revealed. That's great and I have to start off by saying I really enjoyed your book. And it's divided into eight sections and for the listener so they have a sense. This book is just uplifting at really fun to read. But it's easy Torri because his she's Sharon. You got a divided into eight parts. So I'm just GONNA go through this briefly part one. I have so much to say. I hardly know where to begin. Part two releasing all beliefs part three truth always prevails are four if love was the only factor those in the afterlife would remain with us here or would remain here with us. Heart six our beloved pets which is really interesting part. Seven hate part eight. If I I felt the presence of a pure acids that comes from debut in though so young and it's it's just a great book on many of the stories deal with the spirit that has a message for a loved one and you often refer to the ceases being on the other side of Vail before. Really get into the book. I wonder if you would describe the process. What you go through or how the spirit comes to you and also if you could describe this veil that you mentioned I'm actually get there are two veils. I call them the veil of forgetfulness. The first male is between the pre existence and our existence existence here on this earth. Playing the Second Vale is available between the Earth and are moving forward into the Paradise or heaven or to the next Ram the veil is a thin membrane. And the reason why call it? Forgetfulness is because as we pass through we forget our previous existence and and the members there however when we pass through the second veil the veil that separates at the time of death are conscious soul Christ consciousness. That of the experiences that we've had here does go with us to the other side. The consciousness of the brain being and the physical body that guys with the physical Wadi Show. We're taking with US those memories and those experiences with us. When repass the veil I started experiencing this when I was a very young girl? My father was a logger and he was killed his catt turned over on Magnon Cala Oregon and showed that was my first experience with death There's a feeling of abandonment. Masa that goes with this feeling and so- questioning a wandering inquiries you know my Irish five and my baby sister died. I was six when my second father passed. And so I kind of have grown up with this questioning as to wear. Bu Go you know so that was really important. Part of my life this unknown and wanting to know an and having the desire to shake out and find okay. That's I got something here. That is kind of the preface for part. Three truth always prevails. I'd like to read this because it talks a little bit. I guess of you where you're like. You just mentioned you're kind of coming from this. So this is this is As I mentioned the prophets part three. It's the importance of truth. Resides on both sides of the Vale. Truth has a certain ring to it. Speaks to everyone. In fact most of US recognize truth in our gut. If you pause with what is being said and noticed a deep feeling residing within you will experience truth the feeling of peace or adult troublesome spoken statement will penetrate. You're very being. It brings a knowing of aura awareness. There is a spirit in each of US helping us to unerringly determined truth from falsehood my truth. That would be you why truth. I haven't knowing I speak with those in the afterlife. I think that's a tremendous statement and one of the things that struck out to me about. This book is through so many of the of the stories about readings and meeting people and spirits is serious about this because I think for so many people. They say I'll come on but reading the different stories. A lot of people were skeptics. And I wanted to ask you about that. What what is your experience meeting somebody. Who is I? Guess you would say on non believer. Actually I welcome that because most of the time that is orchestrated by a loved one on the other side that is wanting to make connection with this person. That doesn't believe and so when that happens in I'm there and that their loved ones shows up then I'm able to bring through the information that's pertinent to them. The message that needed to come through comes through for them and with being able to experience what I have. Experience IS CONFIRMATION INVALIDATION. Which is why mediums do. What they do is to bring through the validation the confirmation that life is eternal and only the individual having their personal experience with a loved one from the other side something that the medium would have no awareness of but could bring that through bearing witness to that family member that their loved one still continues to exist in the end the another rep and. I know that there's a story in your kind of to that effect of somebody who ask you what do you do? I was at Aquarius at that time. And and visiting with threatened Scott there and Anna lady came in and and She entered It was a old relationship. Soy excused myself and Fred wanted to show him his store because they hadn't seen it before so I went over to speak to Scott remembering that I had left my drink in my room. That a year readings to not I'm They take such pride in their store. I thought I need to run back and get this so as I went back and push the door open. I realized they were there and so I said Oh I'm so sorry I didn't mean to interrupt you and her husband looked at me. Fred introduced me as a medium psychic medium and he looked at me and he said so. What do you do? And so I said for instance your grandfather's here you standing right behind you. And he no. I said your father's here he goes. No my father still alive and I said well then at your grandfather so he did correct me but he said he raised you so that gave me the impression that this was your father now. He's also indicating to that. You stole a car when you were young boy and his wife looked at him and said. I didn't know you never told me that. And so the man just looks at me and I said an he saying. That was your grandmother's car. You never went to jail because your grandfather said he could take care of this and they knew he could. He's also shown me a pistol and he used the word pistol not gun so this was something pretty important to him that he had given to you so I was able to as a medium a mediator between both worlds to be able to ring through information. That wasn't that I didn't know that I still learning myself. And at the very end he looked at me. And you said that's true. He did raise me and just a week ago. I was cleaning my grandfather's pistol in thinking of him and I looked at him and said. So that's what I do and that's great and that's one of the stories in here and that's what's so enjoyable about it is. There's a Dacian to these stories. There's a sense as I read. There's a sense of truth in that. This is coming out you know. Can't that's interesting that you say that because as I give readings the people sometimes they'll say well I don't know that are. I'm not sure about that. I have to tell them that. I believe those on the other side of the Vale. They speak their truth. Those on the other side have to speak their truth and then later on somebody will call me. You're there right knee. Mail me and say you're right. Sharon. I didn't remember it at the time but later on I got to thinking about it. And what they brought through was true and so there's a ring of truth to both sides of the
Miz and Mrs: Season 2 Episode 2 Review

They swore they were never going to do this again. NOPE and here they are a year later doing it again and and we also learned that they're getting a new addition aside from the new baby in that misses mom and her very creepy collection are moving in with miseries when they go back to La.

Ms Cannot do math. Yeah it wasn't very good at math. He's not good at the math. So we go to Rental House One and has a lot of potential has a really nice yard yard. It's okay on the inside. Maurice really likes it. Mrs Just SORTA MIC. This is house hunters Mrs Edition by the Way Russia House to is all true. Oh sweet it's super modern. Very nice everything. They could want more except for the fact that it's way overpriced and to have pets vets In the house. It's it's extra money in it.

He's like I'll bet in company guy he'll he'll make that that sacrifice but he's not going to tell his wife the to make that sacrifice. Oh He's filming US knickers commercial so we see the the last of the house getting packed up. They take one more selfie in front of the House and the Mrs off to film his his snickers commercial we see him sneak his golf clubs in the garage than he acts like. He's leaving ways from Arista. Go back inside. He gets out of his car runs into the garage. Grabs the golf clubs throws them in the car and then they leave the fact that he didn't get caught on that because they have cameras everywhere. Where is hysterical So then we we land in la where it's Maurice Farben Marjo. Oh Monroe the baby and the menagerie of pets. Yeah so we go to the house. They're walking walking around the house where I was like. Oh it's so nice and misses mom breaks out one of her dolls and shows it to Monroe and Monroe is like very scared of the dull shoes. Carring poor little thing. She was terrified of the doll. It's like all Imerese is like I like our. We'll talk about it later. He's like no no we will. You're not getting that thing near my kid. NOPE NOPE so we've been Marie taking monroe out. I stroll I think going down to the park. And they bump literally into another parent. WHO's walking her son up the hill And they start talking about the area and schools and everything comes comes up. There's a preschool waiting list. Because we're they are is a very exclusive area some of the best schools in the country. And you have to fight to get your kid into into preschool. Never mind the regular schools. Reese didn't realize this and the waiting lists in. Some cases are for years long. That is not an exaggeration that is legit Gitte which I knew about shit like that. So the fact that she didn't and I did is terrifying. So Reese freaks out. She calls Ms and he's like. Don't don't don't rush into anything. Don't do anything. They have a bad connection they get disconnected. And she's like all right. Well I'm going to start calling around schools. I'm doing my research and see what I have have to do to get monroe into a preschool and these preschools. They're not you not your average preschool. They teach your children diction and and thought and Mandarin and all kinds of interesting things that I didn't realize preschools compete. But here we go like like diction I'll say this. They try to teach kids in preschool Spanish. Now I'm like I think teaching them another language at an early age is definitely beneficial. Because it's easier when you're younger I think versus when you're harder when you're older at least I know they're trying to teach my nephew like how to count in Spanish. So that's great. That's Awesome I. I wish I wish they did that for us. Because I'm no one. I had to take languages in school. I was offloaded. New Eh. Wasn't the best. Yeah it was not always do numbers and some works with beyond that was like I don't I don't remember honestly but I just know if they had taught taught us like French or Spanish in school. That would awesome like preschool. I've been awesome. But anyway we cut to Maurice Calling all the schools and they let her know most of the schools are like you're too late. The witless is too long. One lady hangs up on her and she's like okay all right so I'm gonNA or do what I have to do to get monroe into a school so she engages a Mandarin instructor to come to the House to teach monroe how to speak speak Mandarin Chinese. The child is one But she still learn to word through the and they're very excited about it over verbs Meritas like she speaks English. She speaks French and now she's going to speak Mandarin and she's one she's a shoo in. So there's that and then there's MS who has arrived at Pebble Beach. She's checking with every his his group which are all the Fox sports hosts talking all about it and then and then ms ms he was so in the home. Free right like he was so in. Clear Maurice's Nice distracted with schools. She's not going to be paying attention. All he had to do was keep his mouth shut. which apparently the fans cannot do to save their souls soup and what does he do? He calls his father and he tells his father that he's going to be playing at Pebble beach on Fox sports sports on live television and he tells his dad all the details. But there's one detail he said don't tell Murray's so we cut back to Los James Louis Moreau Joe has her frog legs. EMORY's is like no. You're not putting those nasty things in my fridge. And then she gets a phone call. It's George and he asked Marie what channel MS is GonNa be on because he's at Pebble beach and he can't find it on TV. EMORY says like no. He's filming stickers commercial. George like no he's going to be on live. TV playing at Pebble Beach. And she's like what and so she starts flipping through the channels right to find him and of course she finds him and there is a pebble beach playing golf. And Mario's like I don't see any snickers I love March. Oh I missed Marjo so much. The submarine being the good wife that she is ready to unload on him. You know he's on the seventh hole. She calls him. He hangs up on her and she sees him him hang up on her Marcio. Marcio has the best line ever. which is he's dead and he doesn't even know it yet? Yeah you're like. He sowed it 'cause when he hung up on her. Okay you're

The resort industry usually trends with the economy. Here at the base of the steamboats Christie Peak Express. Lift Duke says that means resorts have to do more. I think everyone in the ski industry is always looking for ways to make their workplace the best workplace steamboat has increased base wages to twelve dollars and fifty cents an hour about a buck. Fifty above Colorado's minimum wage wage seasonal workers. Stay on for nine to eleven months. You benefits like health insurance and paid time off and parental.

The the administrative people are out there doing those jobs just to fill in. And when that doesn't cut it she says resorts cut down on services like reducing restaurant on ours enclosing particular runs. You're leaving money on the table. They don't WanNa do that. But they're forced to another wrinkle. In Industries labor market resorts have traditionally nations depended on foreign workers in the US on J. One visas but it trump administration executive order placing restrictions on that program. Means that pool of employees has also been reduced. David Bird says it's not just a problem across the rockies. What I hear a lot from ski area owners and operators and it's true grew from large resorts down to small resorts? We're not feeling close to all the jobs that we have better available and if you do land one of those jobs you'll still get the season pass but ski resorts now know that alone.

I strongly suggest you do one. I recommend you do it and keep it in the place. You always see like Walt Disney said if you can dream it you can do it and I know that you can do it this.

You see a having working sixty plus hours a week no job for like ten years while Coke. I would be up at five. Am and on. Long days. I will be working from five. Am To ten PM while at GE.

Well that was me. I wanted something different and that was my sign that I needed a change. The moment you being excited on your daily career live that issue. Cue that you need to give it.

That was solely focused on root canal treatment after putting twenty plus years of school dental school and so much effort. He should disturb what he desired.

Are you like me who loves to plan everything to the team? As much of a type A. Personality that I am. I didn't have this secret formula. I didn't have it in my plans. I just knew we had to make a change because we weren't happy where our careers were heading. Have you ever felt this way? You're not happy with your day to day job. You have dedicated nights and weekends and ask yourself. What else can you be doing? Well don't worry you're not alone. That was me. I was so loyal to the companies. I work for that. I lost myself the string about ever since I was a little girl. I've been wanting to own my business. I didn't know what that would be. I just knew I wanted to be my own C. E. O. I knew I had to get trained and gain experience. Learn how to be cultural and need a business. This was the reason I decided to work for big corporations. I also knew I loved to help others grow. This just comes very natural to me. I love to meet and connect with people that motivate me and make me smile so tell me there's a correct their aesthetic that they find you and makes you smile is helping people. Businesses are creating solutions. Why does that skill that has been embedding? You any come so natural building relationships that last has been my trademark so much that I even have it in my email signature since two thousand one and it became clear after leaving corporate America that perhaps my soul searching all along was my calling and my purpose in life. Please don't think I have it all figured out. I don't but I'm sure enjoying the ride. One question I want you to answer as we dive deeper in this subject is what were your aspirations at six years old. What was six-year-old you. What was it that you wanted to do so badly?

Does that happen to you that you have a skill that comes like a natural superpower that everyone is cheering? You on to do it. Well my friend that sign the day I left corporate world. I felt something was missing. It wasn't a title Era Sales Manager for Latin America Regional Manager for Hispanic accounts or the travel miles or the feeling of hitting my sales target. It wasn't that at all. It was the relationships I built and the Times I was helping and training my team. That is what in my DNA and what makes me so happy is when I'm helping others grow.

#41 - How To Make Learning More Effective
"So Aaron shared with me how he took one hundred of their top. GM's for a two day Leadership Development Summit that address topics topics and issues that were of interest to his team. They also have several Ellen de portals where they offered articles videos podcasts which Aaron told me also includes this one to supplement the training session the challenges having now though is how to make sure these new insights are applied and not lost when in these leaders returned to the hectic pace of their everyday work and more importantly. How can you keep them engaged in wanting to learn even more when Aaron aren't asked me this question. I asked if I could share his story because it's a question I've been asked many times over the years when giving keynotes corporate trainings in fact it's one of the reasons one of my leadership keynotes deals with how leaders can shift from simply training employees to creating a continuous learning environment in their workplace so I know there's as many of you out there who are also dealing with this issue as well so what I'd like to do is share with you. Some simple steps that you can take right now that will help make the new the skills and insights. You learn stick to start off. Let me give you a little context to help frame these steps in their book made to stick chip and Dan Heath present. This idea that a sticky idea is something that's understood. It's remembered and it changes something now while their book was about how how to make what you communicate stick with your audience. I think we can all agree that when we learn new skills or insights we wanted to be something that's understood that that we remember it and that it ends up changing the way we work continuing with chip and Dan's book they describe how they are six principles behind what makes an idea sticky eighty and these six principles are simplicity unexpectedness concreteness credibility emotions and stories now while they say you don't necessarily need all six principals to make your message stick. I want to offer you three steps. You can take that will employ the six principles again if we go back to the problem. Erin shared one which other leaders have also asked me about the challenge we face when it comes comes to training or going to a conference to learn new insights to improve the way we lead is why were there we could see the value of these approaches but but soon after we returned to our workplaces these new insights often fade away as we return to the routines of our day to day work lies so the first step you need take is one that. I often get my audiences to do at the end of my talks and that is to identify one simple change. You'll make based on what what you've just learned now. This one thing you choose has to contain two characteristics. I it has to be something. You can start doing now. With these this and second it has to be something that's personally meaningful. The reason stems from the work of two different researchers Stafford behavioral scientists scientists. BJ Fog who found that the key to changing behavior is taking small steps and Harvard Professor Teresa Mobley who was the second guest to appear on on this podcast who found in her research that making progress on personally meaningful goals leads to enduring success and happiness on the job in other words. You want to focus on applying a new behavior or skill. You've learned on something that matters to you you so that this becomes something that you don't have to do but it's something you want to do and this that lines up with the sticky principle support of simplicity as we're focusing on one specific thing that we can do right now that will improve our work in personally meaningful fashion this also ties into the emotion principle because as chip and Dan right this sticky principle is driven by answering the question of what's in it for me me which you've already answered by this exercise of picking that one simple change you want to make thanks to what you've learned so now that you have this one simple behavior or skill in mine the obvious question becomes. How do you make sure you apply it every day. Well that's the next step and for for this. We're going to use the example of very successful person and one of my favorite comedians Jerry Seinfeld well. Let's start the insanity now. It doesn't matter whether you like it or not as this has nothing to do with his sense of humor but more to do with what he's identified as being the key to his success comedian Brad Isaac Isic once as Seinfeld for tips on what he could do to improve his success at comedy and Seinfeld told him that what he needed to do was to commit to writing every everyday because writing jokes every day would help him hone his craft. Now what's the Real Jim in the story is what Seinfeld told Isaac as being how he pushes himself to write every day especially when he doesn't want to basically what Seinfeld does is. He gets a wall calendar that shows every every day of the year and every day that he writes he puts a red X. in the box for that day once he's done that for a couple of days he's created a chain of XS on this calendar and as Seinfeld told Isaac you like seeing that chain especially when you get a few weeks under your belt. Your only job is to not break the chain now the reason why this is a great strategy for anyone to us is because it embraces braces something that I'm sure you've all heard and read about gamification as Seinfeld says himself he transformed the task of writing into would game where his only job is to not break the chain now. You don't need to get a three hundred sixty five day wall counter for your office us but what you need to do is get a notebook that you use a journal to just write a quick note of what you did to practice this new behavior or skill the reason why is because you need to be able to visually see this chain growing which is critical for this to work because this allows allows you to shift from focusing on how well you apply this new behavior or skill on a given day to the process of applying it regularly elite and consistently towards making it a habit going back to the principles of making things stick you can see that this step ties into the principle of of concrete nece as you can see visually for yourself how you've applied this new behavior or skill on a given day and also links to the principle of credibility because as you re back how you apply this new behavior or skill and not qualifying how good are bad you were at it you can. I can see how this new behavior or skill can be used successfully everyday and hopefully also noticing some positive benefits growing along on with and this leads to my last step that will help make those new behaviors and skills you've learned stick and this one revolves around one of the points. I share my keynote talk on how the shift from training people to continuously improving talent and that is you need to treat learning as shared experience now to help illustrate rate the value of this step. I WANNA share a story about one of the leaders. I wrote about in my book Leadership Vertigo. Billy Taylor was the plant manager for the Goodyear Vale Plant. When he joined the plant? It was one of the most poorly performing appliances goodyear and was at risk of being closed within two. Oh Years Taylor transformed it into one of the top performing manufacturing plants a good year and was promoted to an executive role at goodyear while there are many things Taylor did to achieve this outcome. There's one I wanNA share in the context of making our learning stick and that is how he put up information boards throughout the plant that identified which manufacturing team was working on a given product line and the level of output. They were creating now the reason he did this was was not simply to hold the different production teams accountable for their productivity but so that's different teams could learn from one another about what they were doing to improve their performance performance. In fact Taylor facilitated this cross learning between teams by putting up other boards throughout the plant that showcase projects is employs initiated improve the plants productivity and cost effectiveness as a result of the lessons. They learned from one another working on the plant floor. Now remember remember that the first step I told you about was to pick that one behavior or skill that you've learned that you WanNa make stick because you not only know no you can make this a part of your leadership tool kit but also because you know it's going to have a meaningful impact on how you perform your job well well. The wonderful thing of identifying this at the start of this process is that it allows you to not only attain some early wins but you also now have something something of value to share with other leaders in your organization in terms of how they can apply this behavior or skill to improve their leadership and conversely when when they share with you how they apply other behaviors and skills to the way they lead you gain better insights on how you yourself can apply these other behaviors and skills to continue learning and growing the key point. I want you to take note of is that learning can't exist in a vacuum or silo but as I pointed out in the first step it needs to be connected both to why you do what you do and how you go about getting things done in your everyday the day work and again going back to chip and Dan's principles of stickiness we can see how this step clearly ties into that principle of stories in how we're sharing sharing our stories our experiences with learning to improve ourselves but it also ties into the principle of unexpectedness because in en- sharing your lessons learned you stand to gain both new insights into how to build on what you're currently doing as well as where you can start next in that process of applying applying what you've learned
Mark Randolph talks about turning a No into a Yes
"Everybody Buddy welcome to episode three twenty five of the ask. Garry show and I'm very excited about this episode. Let's go right into it. I know a lot of people watching livestream across all the platforms but it's GonNa be Lincoln today. As we continue testing out Lincoln live linked in. Please put in your phone numbers. If you have a question for for my distinguished guest here today Markham and allow you to introduce yourself in a second. new book is out. Obviously I'm really excited about talking about Netflix and his career but I want to get into a bunch of questions because even the first three or four minutes of just hanging with him before we went live. I think the energy is going to be really good which which is exciting to me from a content standpoint so mark. Why don't you introduce yourself and tell everybody a little bit about your origin. Story sounds good. Gary so Marc Randolph co-founder co-founder for CEO net flicks and now soon to be author. which is kind of adding something totally new to my mix for you origin story well? I'm I'm sixty one so I'm still working out with. My origin story is what were you born. I was born just over there in Chappaqua up so I'm a New York boy. He's so for the first half of my life and so. What kind of kid were you so? I was a kid who anytime I wanted to do something. My parents said go for it. That's I I come home and go dad. I'm going to caving in rather than being like what are you. What are you nuts. I get the fantastic. That sounds really cool. That's really neat. It was really neat. Where where were you in the only child you have siblings. I'm the oldest of three okay so right off the bat. Even you know it's funny you hear that a lot more from third child's else perspective so even as the oldest. Your parents had gave you some room. I think for third child. It's like what's what's your name. I know knows it was is really great. It all other thing I do reflect back on. What was it about how I grew up that maybe gave me? Some of the things I have and one is that it was also a family. We're no is always something to get around. It was like not something that you took no and walked and left from the standpoint of if your parents said no oh they appreciated you trying to figure it out a little bit 'cause my mom was like that a little bit yeah and also them kind of recognizing that whenever barrier came up it wasn't like we give up and walk away okay it. It was always being said there's amazing. Go right into this a little bit later this. I was graduating from college okay and I wanted to get a job as a advertising EXAC back. Okay I was really into yet anyway. I applied for this job at. NWEA air no longer here but firm Yup and it was one of those jobs which only usually usually goes to MBA's yup is an undergraduate so as long shot thing and those like I don't know a thousand people applying and I got the first round and then the second round they bring it in York and and I got the second round in the third round they bring you back and I got down to the point where there's only four people applying for this job and it was like Holy Shit and I went in in an interview with everybody whole day and didn't get it and went slinging backup to upstate New York college and going well screw it. I'm I'm not going to up so I wrote these long emails to our letters letters letters to everybody and basically was saying like all right. I'll try again. What what could I do better. What should I learn. What do you want to see and then the guy goes. Come on down and brings me up and offered me the job and the crazy thing is that no one was given the job none of the four of us interesting that this was a job which was about turning a no into Oh yes and so they said no to everybody and waited to see who would not take no for an answer really absolutely. That's amazing that a crazy crazy thing thing. I love it so that really is probably the best articulation of how I grew up interesting so you took that job kind of actually notice how I kind of the way you tell us what I'm like. He didn't take the fucking job I did and I took it even crazier job. which was there was the guy? I've ever told history before. There was a guy in Memphis. Tennessee owned a big cotton company sold it in the family of two hundred years made a gazillion dollars and was basically driving around throwing money out the window basically feels like today you're go he'd he bought these properties and I'm kind of an outdoorsy guy. They have always been into like your story was caves. Yes absolutely WHOA. This guy had bought a ski shop. He'd bought a place out veil and he was looking for someone to tie them altogether and he goes. You'RE GONNA. You're going to run this kind of this big CO marketing business. Did you know that family friends that someone like that. That would give you that at bat at that. Young of an age. There was some other variable relationships. You're you're drag me down. These complicated stories but you're pro so there's an organization that I apologize business where I wanNA bring value to the audience mark. Here's why the reason I'm probing is because I have a very good sense of my audience and ironically. I'm pretty good at this other than the fact. I love to interrupt all the time. I'm because I'm just because I already know what the answers are and because I'm usually on a time crunch so they actually the audience gets mad at me. 'cause I interrupt everyone on the flip side. I've an incredible sense about what stories could bring value. I promise you mark let me tell you one thing about this audience. This is not the today show like what's amazing about. This audience is thirty. Four people bull arbitrary number just heard that story and literally in the next twenty four hours are going to reply to a no and one was gonna get yes and you and I literally right now. Just change the course of somebody's life and that's what gets me high. It's it's unbelievable and by the way don't worry about the interrupting. I mean if you just said like pass the roles and the thought I was talk about the story cool. How'd you get them. So when I was fourteen they packed my parents pack up to Wyoming to do this. backpacking trip in the mountains uh-huh and it turns holidays again which one of your parents was super outdoorsy. If either my dad my dad grew up in Austria so he kind of just if you've gone so and then I loved this program and it was a personal teaches leadership using a wilderness as a setting and I was a student there for three or four summers and then I ended up teaching there as a leader and then eventually got to the point is leading leading the whole courses so a lot of responsibility young that was my college summer job and so this Julian Jay Hohenberger the third the guy with the Cotton Company at one of the things he did when he was throwing the money the window was. I'm GonNa take a course he. He went out to Wyoming. He did this course you taught it. I did not he was so in Namur d- by the course and instructors that when he heard from my through through someone else that I was of course leader there he goes. I want that guy. You know what's so funny. I to this day still have that in me. You show me a kid a guy or a gal who flips sneakers cells blow. POPS does cards like I believe in that Shit Genetic Markers for entrepreneurship I do not it's candy the arbitrage everyone almost everyone. I meet like you says the same thing. It's going in and buying it for ten cents in the next day you go to school for a buck and if you show me people not that it's why. I love people that sell weed who sought like if you tell me that you sold we'd from a bad neighborhood obviously a normally but not always and and you sold nickel bags. I already am interested in you because it means literally arbitrage dime bags. Somebody who's never smoked weed telling the story Free College. I always thought my friend Bob use would have been a good entrepreneur because he had the discipline and the grind to go down to the nickel bag bag level that takes a real fucking commitment and so- arbitrage anyway absolutely right. It's it's the vision to go knocking. It's seeing an opportunity. It's seeing a pressure differential hundred and that happens for kids who are six when it's candy. It happens for people in their twenty six or forty six when they see oh man taxis suck. I'M GONNA do hundred thousand percent. It's that's why it's a marker for that is someone who sees things really matched of course with all these other things. Of course you've seen which is what happened your kid out of school. You're twenty two and you're now running this conglomerate of different businesses and then even worse. I did this job percents and this company better the company that one of the properties was in in the ghost town resort in outside of Vale and the manager did your left and they go and I go I want that job and so they moved me out and now you're this twenty-three-year-old knows nothing and he's running this place which a sixty employees and as he's huge cash flow issues and a restaurant bar and and I'm going down. I'm doing the marketing and the advertising and it was like cashflow one. Oh one it was management one. Oh one it was thrown into this super deep pool and going to swim. You don't know how you're sitting. You're quiet because I'm like. Oh my God we grew up the same way. I'm the byproduct of the same thing in a liquor store. Yeah it was a small base of four five and six employees and then I grew it but by the time I was twenty five years old. I had managed people. I'd paid all my bills with my cat own cash flow. You know credit no credit line. I forget about fucking raising capital. No credit line the first business I built from three to sixty million dollars hours year in fucking eight years had no credit. That's awesome because then you don't see credit as a crutch. You see it's a thing that you is what you know now how to use that the US it's awesome and even if you're trained in it when I raised money for empathy. I didn't spend it as well when when that's exactly right it is something that could save you overspend your business and that is a very very strict teacher so I mean did that cool. Thanks yeah some stuff did that then. It got probably the the job which influenced me the most is. I got this weird job. Quick quick question. I struggle with Sir Twenty three and you're in in this resort town right. Yes resort town SORTA. It's halfway between Vail and steamboat which means the middle of nowhere but it's close to both and you're twenty three twenty three and you've got this kind of cool big job. How did you balance your personal life and your professional life at that point in your life because I've actually I'm not going to lead lead the question. What did you do. How how much did you date. How much fun were you having how much fun where you having a great thing it. Was it was a really good lesson. I had a lot of fun and So don't get me wrong. Because everyone was working. There was twenty three going go ahead and so and and it was the Alpha of the twenty three and that was leverage. That was the bad part though was that these guys it was on the banks of the Colorado River so they'd all go. Hey we're all going rafting going. I've gotTa do you know inventory. I gotta how to pay these responsibilities and it kind of really was painful. So I got a lot of funds. I'm not bemoaning it but there was this realization that there's a different level level of responsibility that I had but I did meet my wife there and so amazing did come out of come out of that go ahead all right so the come come back east and got this how old must've been only twenty four quick twenty-five two years in Colorado two and a half years okay keep going so come back and get this crazy job basically as gopher to the CEO of Music Publishing Company. I think my title was like a I chief of staff or something looking at all. These guys is like literally my so far. I just want everybody who's listening to you right now. I'm sorry mark I'm taking episode over listening. I just I don't know if you've been listening but I think I could see some of you in the room putting the pieces together my core so my advice is to do and like manage and like like actually make and sell it and then or and or if you want to be somebody go work as an Admin a gopher chief of staff for somebody. That's extremely at a very high level each shit. It is basically what I'm saying. Basically is what I'm saying and I'm just GonNa make it simple here so far. What I've heard from mark is the first two things didn't his career was jumped in full throttle. Sacrifice is what he was saying couldn't have as much fun dealt with all that was practical and then and then have the humility. Let's say one more time for all the people out there that love being a CEO had the humility to go from being the lead dog of something like that in that ecosystem going and being a gopher a chief of staff of whatever about the here and I just want to remind all of you this all lead for him to be the CO founder and CEO of Netflix so it's such a I'm so glad you called a little time out on that one because that that is the the piece of advice I give to every single person who goes.

PBA DOT com slash B W daily the UH from wondering I'm David Brown and this is business wars daily on this Tuesday September tenth hot out there well well if you're a skier no matter whether you're sweating and turning up the air conditioner as you listen to this. It's time to think about buying your ski pass. That's because the ski industry he has been consolidating over the last few years. Colorado giants Vail Resorts and Altarum Mountain Company has been doing two things each has been buying up resorts across the country country and abroad and they've been creating huge season pass programs the give pass holders access to the mountains they own as well as to partner resorts all over the globe globe as the two fierce rivals focus on selling more and more season passes daily lift ticket prices get ever more jaw-dropping last season season daily passes to vail or beaver creek another high end. Colorado resort broke two hundred dollars for the first time making those to Vail owned resorts the most expensive in the US. That's a hefty fee especially. If you want to bring the kids why so pricey will impart the strategies to force you to make the comparison and determined that a pass is far more economical than buying daily lift tickets why spend two hundred nine dollars to ski for a Single Day at Vale when you could good spent about a thousand dollars to ski all winter whether you're in Vermont or Utah even Japan for people who are sure they want to ski at least a few days this it's winter a pass from one company or the other can save you a bunch of money. Veils epoch pass is good at sixty nine different resorts the icon which Altera Tehrik created just last year will get you into forty one resorts from Colorado steamboat to the icons newest European Destination Zermatt in Switzerland. It's not easy to give a head to head comparison on prices because the potential combinations are dizzying. Do you want ski in only one state while there's a price for that. I want unlimited skiing including over holidays everywhere. That's different current prices unveils season passes range from about four hundred dollars for local resorts to nine hundred sixty nine dollars to ski anywhere including new resorts in Japan and Australia. Alturas cost around five hundred dollars for local resort pass say Colorado's winter park to just over a thousand bucks for access to all forty. One destinations and there are discounts for veterans teran's in children and for people who can skip the most popular holiday times. If you're shopping get actress spreadsheets depending on how much you ski either pass could save you megabucks compared to a single day lift ticket but you knew this was coming. There's a catch to get these discounts. You have to be a planner owner low prices and before Thanksgiving that's because a few years ago the rivals parent companies realized it would be smart to book revenue while Violets still warm out there rather than waiting for unpredictable Mother Nature to deliver customers early season pass revenue wooden just smooth out the bumpy nature of the ski a business it would give each company predictable revenue stream and for Vail boost share prices just like subscription businesses everywhere of course if you're an individualist. They're still bumper stickers on old vehicles in the Colorado rockies that say F- Vale you can still find an independent independent mountain or to those family mountains whether in Colorado or any other mountain state or often more down to earth not to mention cheaper than the glitzy resorts.

"Dollar bills when night Vale annexed, our city Josephine and her demons came to live here in the other world, and they're just as happy as ever. There's also savannah Hernandez who used to live in red Mesa. She heard about our fledgling city from a low flying helicopter and thought it sounded like a great place to hide from US tax collectors. So last year she moved to desert bluffs, and now she's married to Jessie Prichard and they've had four kids, Agnes. H two, our Monde age four and twins, Yolanda and Leon ages, fourteen and seventeen respectively. Some people even came to desert bluffs as refugees of the blood space war like Olen, Hayward, shantelle, James and coach a small, but dense neutron or from the horse head nebula. I even know of one person, Ryan Nichols who didn't know desert bluffs existed or how he got here. He told me he used to live in a place called Alabama. Alibi. Alabama. Alabama. He was in his fraternity house at school, and when he walked out the front door thinking he was going to go join his friends at a party. He walked straight into this desert and the door behind him was gone Ryan's first few months here we're tough. He missed his friends and family, but everyone here in desert bluffs convinced him that we were all his friends and family. Now, just look at our smiles. We shouted as we surrounded him. That's the kind of warmth and kindness. Only a true small town can give. And of course there is that new man. He came into town today, who is he? What does he want from us? Why his perfect and beautiful smile. Why his perfect and beautiful teeth teeth like a Stein way? He says he is at the Allah gised well, we have all been theologists at one point or another in our lives. But why now? Why here and just what does he plan to do with all those religious textbooks in that house, he's renting over by little Rick salad stand. Anyone can make a salad at little Rix. Anyone. Well, as far as this new citizen, my rhetorical questions are simple ones to answer. His name is Charles. He's originally from cactus part and spent the last few years living in pine cliff doing a study on why everyone who lives there is a ghost Charles said. He simply wanted to live in desert bluffs. He said this desert other world is the most feel logically interesting place in the US after pine cliff a town where everyone is a ghost is pretty hard to beat interest wise. He said, Charles is forty one years old and wants to settle down, become a teacher and raise a family. Charles is a welcome addition to desert bluffs. He's someone I'd really love to keep my eyes on. So to speak. Right now at city hall mayor, Lauren Mallard is announcing her plans to build a public library in desert bluffs cheese, talking about the joy of learning and the comfort of books. People seem quite happy about our new mayor and her ideas to improve this town, a large gathering of smiling. People have amassed in downtown to hear about mayor mallards budget for this new project. Libraries certainly are helpful, municipal resources..

"Yeah. It's just shining mirror at us. I talked about the show Bosch near an Amazon fire, and now I get Bosh ads. Whenever I go on Facebook, I'm not. I've never watched it I've looked at. Yeah, because it's always that cassette is the commercials always forced on you down Amazon because they're like, plays. Watch this show. After I got married on Facebook, I started to, I got married and your life, but also Facebook what you change your relationship status to married. I started getting a lot of ads for baby stuff, and then I was researching short play that I was reading about locations of abortion clinics, and I stopped getting ads for baby stuff. So the best way to get rid if you're getting a lot of baby step adds just googling where your nearest abortion clinic is also maybe try googling grad school, and they will go trying to get rid of those baby pro life. Heck well, and that's just that's just a further of the societal, like no one's ever satisfied. Like once you're dating someone, they're like, when are you getting married when you're married, you're having a baby. No one's ever like, well, you've done all these things. When are you going to die? Exactly. Talking expert coffins. Right. The state lawyers, you know, I'm seeing ads for that. Al Pacino Kevorkian movie that was on HBO few years ago. I bet. And this is me hypothesize in over here that elderly people on Facebook probably get adds to prepay their funerals because that's the thing that people do now. So there's definitely funeral homes that are like advertising to the elderly on Facebook being like prepaid that funeral save your children, that burden you nearly have seen the ones I've seen the ones about like funeral insurance, does that mean they could die? I'm not gonna die. I am good. I am good. I, but not today we all are. I don't think today outlive us all. I'm sorry. That was terrible. Let's let's hope I'm like, no, I do that for you. I hope that you die in the middle of everyone surrounded. Surrounded by many knives, right? It's like, I don't want you to outlive us all because that'd be sad for you. But you know, you got just I hope that you die somewhere in the middle of all your friends. Let's just say, let's just say I can run pretty fast. So if there's ever a bear tack, you can count on me to try and live. I just have to outrun you people awful the barrel, say that trees having its period. And then when the bear looks at the tree, I'll be gone. I'll be gone. I know that you, you're not gonna get plan, not gonna get me sheer trickery. So some other poignant issues that night Vale might this episode might bring up is the election for the council seats that are up and how a certain member of your family is gonna get kidnapped and take into the caves, you know? And I don't know. I mean it that's pretty much. Bobby, you know, but seeing as though our president is a mobster looking at the the, how elections work in knightdale was like, is that even preferable to our elections where you know, just looking for a new system. Again, out of the box thinking we're talking about it in the last episode, I'm willing to try something new because apparently what we got isn't working. We're not yielding great results. Again, I keep listening to to this through the ears of Steve. It's hard not to filter things through the character of playing on the show for for five years and like. This episode I was like, boy, Steve feels a really great responsibility to his family and to do good in the world. If he is the one who really understands what's going on, if that's true, and all of this is happening like that is a huge burden to bear. Like you're, you're in a town where they're going to beat up someone in your family to make sure everybody votes the right way, which is like a fun joke and play on on elections and just being kidnapped corruption beat up. Well, somebody's get worked over. There get worked over a little bit. A little light work is being done, but you'll never. If you don't Volk, you'll never see them again. So who knows what that capacity me? Exactly. I this, it's a really like it such a dark. It's so funny how the humor comes from the darkest time line of any possible part of living in town, how the elections work. Why in last episode, white big Rico's pizzas the only pizza place in town, the woman who the distribution center where burnt burnt down and it was totally an accident. Please call me insurance person please call. Yeah, that's yeah, Leonhard. Yeah, good. Only in she'll do anything for her paper, you know? So yeah, we get the football preview the false fall preview, which is an I. I try to one of the first digs at desert bluffs. Right. And about how a above against all we have to beat desert buffs. 'cause they're. I guess. Yeah. And is also the first time that you d think that they said that it was a navy scorpion so we got like a mascot? Yeah. And I don't think we've mentioned the before. You know how people are with their sports supports malls. So super excited to talk to Jeffrey about this when we get him on the phone because he is our local resident person who knows about sports ball. We just as always says, if you can't tell who's writing it, if it's about sports, it's definitely Jeffrey. That's reading it. When we're both on the road, listen city will find time to sit and talk about sports with one another because in that context where the only ones where the only to care. So like we'll just go have our conversation in private. We don't get Erin mckeown on the road. Yeah, feel about face fall. Third, third PF there's not a lot of buzz sports, enthusiasm among the night fell touring cast. And fortunately. Sports, just fine. But like I don't know all that stats. You know, I don't know all the stuff in most of the plays. I don't know what's going on. I just know that guy ran with that thing over there and that's good. You know, Alec horse racing. Well, you are of a of a question nobility, paintcare. Can we talk about what just happened in San Diego, backstage. Loveline we went down a rabbit hole of a couple of. I think it was like me. I forgot about the you're there and. My wife, Jennifer, and I think mouse there as well. And Meg was looking up like she wasn't even like looking for. She was just like, this is how this is how the horse that Hal is. Here's like everybody was a horse and it was right, but it wasn't even like she had to look it up. She already knew it was like she had them like bookmarked or something. She was like, this is you, this is you. They were. I think Jennifer's with the best one. It was like the spirit of your wife. How like just on a horse in a screen. I think John's us John's is pretty good too dispersions course pick was pretty spot on just like his hair. We can. We start a segment on the show called megs. Horse picks where you share. This Parisian is the the Carolina cotton tail who exhibits these qualities dispersion was a Belgian worm blood. First of all that Lori burn. I need have the right name. Yeah, with a with a kind of spooky swoopy main soupy side, bang, Maine. Glorious sight. Bang, yes, yes, he does good ole disparate. I don't know. We were talking about sports. That's how it was like, how did we get here to this? How did the ask myself that question a lot get here, horses are sports horses are the sport that I most into just the triple crown. It's like an spring. Early spring, watched some horses on TV. I went to the Belmont Stakes when I was a kid. My uncle took me what about the derby? I never been to the derby that's on my bucket list, but we'll see if that ends up happening. I want to wear a hat on a drink a mint julep. I wanna yell at a horse and then maybe get to petted if it wins. I think you could do all of those things individually in a day, but like never all at once except for the derby. Yeah, like you could probably yell at a horse and have a mint julep horse. Right. Well, if you yell at you have to pet it. I, I don't think you can yell. Then pit it, it's for sure. Gonna bite you. I'm more going for it than at it caring for I. It needs to be go drive by feel divorces and start screaming at them. I need to be rooting them on. You can do it eat that grass. Yourselves. So I thought it was really funny in regards to the portal that led the Teranda don's Ono the pterodactyls out when people looked in it, they were playing handball or something. They aged like the just the part that they looked in like, so their head and shoulders age two, thousands of years. So their body was still normal, but like their head. Was that of yours also? Would it be like dust or would it still like, you know, like liquid squishy or was the shrunken head? You know what I mean? Like thoughtful? Yeah. Like Indiana Jones in the last crusade or like Beetlejuice? Well, that's trunk in head. I think.

The consequences plus changes about the night Vale daily journal controversy at rate on canyon and our annual high school football preview, and do we have our work cut out for us and I'm going to do the thing where I remind us to tell the audience who we are.

So our episode starts out with ceased announcing that there was a really noisy glowing portal that happened at the PTA meeting and some Teranda don's came out, but we later find out they're not Taran don's their pterodactyls, which just bubble the p. did you know that so toretta I did. Is it really. I did no research. I was. I was reading along in by tonight, fell script book volume one, mostly void, partially stars. Oh, I don't to have that. If you don't have that same thing, I will send it to you that you know of many as I was about to say, I don't have that. I literally looked up at my bookcase. It is directly in front of me who can't read. It's me. Are we allowed to curse on this podcast? I would say that there's a couple of them that you shouldn't say just in life and those are the ones that you should stay on the show like the f. word now, I think the efforts probably okay if you say that in life. Okay, good. Make you just blew my fucking mind because it didn't even occur to me. I've been listening to these. I plan on continuing to listen, but I'm like, why not go look at the scrip l. yeah, Jim about it. I've to sitting in the other room with all the words that it just in case. I'd like need to remember. Or something. Disgusted with myself. We're smarter than this how I actually was in the same boat myself until I was reading emails from fans. And one of the was like, I went through my script book and I was like. There's a fan that thanks for that. I could look through g mail account and find out your name and give you a really touching shot right now, but I'm not gonna do that. So you are touching shoutout. Thank you for directing us to the script books seriously fan, you know, who are yeah, into sales pitch the script books right now because why not to really nice grip books that are out if you there paperback, they're available through Harper perennial, there's mostly void partially stars and the great glowing coils of the universe which are episodes of volume. One vying to, I don't know how many episodes contains, but it's a lot of them and it's my first published writing work since I was in the Jewish experiment Beck in nineteen ninety four and Philadelphia, very exciting reason enough to own those books you really and that and that newspaper from ninety four. If you can find it literary sailings of how Lublin of newspapers the nightmare, daily journal. That was a really good segue. Thank you thing that I just wrecked. Let me by talking about it. Yeah. So are the journal write like they have the platinum premium ads and why can't you read my notes? All writers. Oh, and all the writers were laid off and they have the right euro new story section, which got struck me as very Huffington Post. I was like, oh, they're just throwing a little shade at our friends at the Huffington Post is write your own news story, which is, hey, isn't it is that just does as well. They have people submit are. Now there's a lot of the newspapers that online. Now, there's no such thing as a newspaper where they do submissions. So snooze news paper, what is newspaper. There's so much in this episode about journalism and how money influences journalism and how it's leading to the failing of the press. But Leonhard just presses. Right on. We touched on this a little bit last week about how there are certain parts of lists of this realization that make me cringe because they're so relevant. And this is the one is like, oh, the rise of the citizen journalist, and that idea that where we get our news now in in the world is just from whoever whatever aunt post something I might be where we get it or the idea of confirmation bias and all the terrible things that that come with just sort of the wild west of online media. The way it exists right now and seeing that just reminds me as I listen to the show, and especially in this episode of this is this will be terrible place to live. You are in constant fear and under constant threat. You don't know where. Any of the information is coming from or whether it's accurate, you're under watchful eye? Yes, yes. And you're constantly being watched so modern day America. Yeah. Yeah.

"Yeah yeah you know yeah so jaya what do you love about the office god will i think that it's ridiculous to say it's funny that's like i you know that's such a subjective thing but i think that at its best it really just you know brought up all these little everyday things that you don't realize how ridiculous they are and then once you see it as you realize how funny and ridiculous they are and i think that's what initially made me love it so much is is seeing these things that you would normally think is very mundane or very just annoying and and just like the deep absurdity of them i love that about it do think you're allowed to critique something that you love absolutely critique things all the time great i mean i don't think you would critique something if you don't at least have some sort of connection to whether it'd be good or bad yeah giant do you think you can critique something that you love yeah absolutely you know i think that was actually a conclusion that it took me a long time to realize i think i for a long time was very uncomfortable whenever somebody came after something that i loved 'cause i didn't wanna have to i didn't wanna have to justify my love for something against someone else's critiques but i think similarly i learned that right you know if if something if you're going to care about something it's your responsibility to to think about it and know everything about it and know what other people about it and just because i love something and someone else doesn't or someone else's obsessed with something that i don't understand doesn't mean i can't acknowledge that or appreciate that or learn about why they love it the way they do and why that's different for me i think that yeah i think that's important for all art i know we're closing this out but thomson's it's what brought us here i have to ask do you think giant should be burned at the stake i at an enterprise person do not endorse the burning of anyone at the stage highly highly illegal has been legal for about three hundred years so i meant that as as like a witch reference he yeah so yeah yeah or joan of arc whoever whoever you joe but no no you shouldn't be burnt at the stake your lovely woman you're awesome thinking actually i wanted to ask like a sub question please guys like sushi both of you sushi next time i'm in new york i'm gonna hit you up dylan if you wanna get some sushi we better all get together okay so we're going to get to sounds great this has been wonderful i just have to ask it's the title of the show i'm one hundred percent sure i know the answer but this show is called conversations with people who hate me giant d you hate tom not at all and tom do you hate jaya nah fuck with you jeez where he we're getting it i wanted to keep you guys i know what we felt in suspense so tom thank you so much thank you so much i guess i will see both on the internet all right good bye tom if you'd like to be a guest on this show and take your own online conversation and move it off line please visit www dot conversations with people who hate me dot com for more information conversations with people who hate me as a production of knightdale presents vincent cascione is the sound engineer and mixer christie grespin is the executive producer the theme song is these dark times by caged animals the logo was designed by rob wilson and this podcast was created for duced and hosted by me dylan merrin special thanks to adam see so emily muller and our publicist megan larson will be releasing episodes every other week so i'll see you in two weeks with a brand new conversation until then remember there's a

"Of you know and maybe i didn't do this well enough in my piece but i i was very disappointed to find myself feeling this way because i didn't wanna feel anything but complete unobstructed love for the office and then i found that a lot of my feelings were a little more a little more complicated and i wanted to express that but also that you know i don't think that keeps me from appreciating it i think it's always worth it to to look at the art and the things that we love and think about why we love them and do we love them in spite of something do we love them because of something so as someone who is a decade younger when i first started watching it realizing the ways i've changed and the real realizing the ways that i now react to the show differently than i did a decade ago so tom no hearing why wrote this i want to kind of bring up a point you made in your tweet which is the idea of political correctness so political correct yeah all right so tom i don't wanna put words in your mouth but i think it's fair to say you're not a fan fair to say no i'm not a fan of political correctness what do you think the problem with political correctness is too much i know i'm supposed to word that a little bit better fancier but i think people sometimes forget that we have a first amendment and it really does what you say or think whatever you want just because someone doesn't agree with you it doesn't make them were you wrong i personally am not offended by a lot of shit like if i don't know if you if i was like of a different race and you called me a racial slur it might bother me a little bit but at the end of the day that you saying that to me shows me that that what you're saying is a reflection about how you feel about yourself so i just try to live my life and i guess that collides with other people's lives i e this phone conversation that we're having right now so tom you brought up the first amendment i didn't and it's funny you know the way i kind of see this podcast is i feel like this podcast is like the continuation of the first amendment it's like yes you are free to say whatever you want yeah but here's how you can listen to someone who has affected by it you know what i mean so these are like the footnotes of the first amendment these aren't the footnotes of the first amendment fuck with us i always think you know because i agree i think there's a lot about the first amendment that people forget you know yeah you're allowed to say whatever you want and people are allowed to criticize you for it or disagree with you or whatever but i always wonder that it's like yes you can say whatever you want but why are you then choosing to say that specific thing and i'm also a writer so i think about that a lot understandably so yeah so so tom i think the best way to put it is that i it's like it's not just the footnotes to the first amendment it's like the first amendment god bless it it exists and this is what comes after you know yes the after now the aftermath of the i write a lot of the article was about how the office makes light of workplace abuse tom have you experienced workplace abuse i'm a former marine and i don't think i've ever worked anywhere around a female ever in my life giant have you experienced workplace abuse i have and i think you know tom it sounds like the places we've worked have been relatively different i definitely have worked around a lot of women but i think a lot of a lot of the abuse i've gotten has never been anything so outright.

"Hey i'm dillon merrin and welcome back to conversations with people who hate me the show where i take negative online conversations and moved them from comment sections and inboxes two phone calls sometimes i have one on one conversations with people who have written negative things to or about me on the internet and other times i connect to strangers who have engaged in their own online negative today i'll be connecting people my first guest is john who wrote an essay about the american television show the office specifically questioning if the show holds up by today's standards the essay was tweeted out and in response man named tom replied you should be burned at the stake for disrespecting the office also stop being pussy pc is for non selfaware pussies okay so i i'll talk one on one to then i'll talk one on one to tom and then i'll connect the two of them to each other let's get started hi giant are you how are you i'm good so your a writer i am a writer tell me when that started it's it's been around for a long time writing got it i really started realizing that this is what i wanted to do as a career toward the end of college but at this point i've been doing it for about a decade so you write very publicly online yes i do and sometimes things right online viral yes they do so you recently wrote a piece critiquing the television show the office yes i did what made you write that piece so the piece was essentially looking back at the office from where we stand in twenty eighteen and seeing how it feels so i revisited it and sort of to my horror and disappointment found that i had a really hard time finding it as funny as i did when i i watched it and a lot of what the office deals with is very bad boss this boss who says a lot of racist sexist things and thinks they're funny and traumatizes his employees and how does that look and how does that feel at a moment where we're all talking about workplace harassment and sexual harassment and you know these things that have very real consequences have you ever been criticized for being too politically correct i'm asking this as someone who has always been being politically you know it's funny i think that i think i very much used to be the person that would do the criticizing a really in a way in what context i think i was very namrd with being the cool girl for a long time but i think i also was fed the idea that being politically correct was that you were just doing this to score brownie points with some unknown entity rather than for the direct betterment of yourself in the people around you so you know i very much understand where that where that reticence to the idea of political correctness comes from but since i i've embraced being the social justice warrior and being that person i have certainly been accused of being too politically correct on things right do you still love the office i i don't think i will be able to give up the office i think that there are a lot of things in it that i really love i think it might be a while before i sit down and watch it all again but i you know i still think that there are so many good performances in the office i think there are so many good jokes in the office i by no means one everyone to just completely wash their hands of it and think that this was well it's holy bad and we can just never talk about it again i just think it's always useful to to look at the art that we love and think about why we love it and what are some difficult things in it you know you're still allowed to love it was just going to ask do you think that by criticizing critiquing piece of art a television show movie a book that you're taking away from it no i don't think that critiquing something means you.

"Hey there as usual welcome to night vale is on hiatus for the month of july before bursting back in august with new episodes plus a run at the edinburgh fringe festival i'm very excited about during this month off we are doing something we're calling the summer of night fail presents every friday during this july we will be celebrating and sampling some of the other amazing work being done on the night vale presents network obviously we are known for our fiction podcasting but in this first part of our summer of night failed percent celebration we are looking at some of our nonfiction work first off we're going to start with a short excerpt from a podcast i made last year called i only listened to the mountain goats it is a show in which i sit down with one of my artistic heroes john dr neil singer and songwriter of the band the mountain goats and talk about his songs about art and about whatever the hell we wanted to talk about you don't have to know anything about my work or even his work it's not just for fans of the mountain goats it's a long form experiment in what it means to be a fan to be an artist and as many of us are to be both at once volker named at one of their best podcasts of the year saying that it is quote a sensational and spirited idea surpassed only by the wonder of its execution here is a bit of our conversation from the episode discussing john song the mess inside that gives i think some sense of how these conversations wandered through topics in ways i really enjoyed today we're gonna be talking about the mess inside john mess inside go is in g on it i'm trying to we were doing it on the last happy now your life tour which was the to idea with khaki king and it's one of the ones that i remember very vividly the last night of tour webster hall it being really good that night i don't know that we played it much since right you have some songs where you have a night where you have a definitive version you go yeah i don't know whether as a doing anymore with moonavar goldsboro done it since but there was in austin also on that tour like meriva goals were was done that was that was it it so so he's one of a couple of we talked about this that that it's visiting a theme i've been worrying about what is it suits two thousand so really not for that long four or five years at this point i've been sort of chewing on couples that that who are unhealthy together right but this one it's a lot more nuanced because they're not you know having some drinks but they're not alcoholics necessarily they're not they're not in peril they are trying to recapture something that is lost and i feel like that is actually a big theme in my writing since then that prior to that the way i would look at it and i hate to put it this way because you know if you will young to hear that there's some stuff that it helps to have a couple more years more rings around your trunk when you're right but loss is a thing that grows bigger as you have more lose and as as the distance between the things you lost and you gross greater right it's like the broader the distance the more there is say about it really especially when if you get to a point where you lost something and then you can't remember what it was because it was so long ago and in this one it's it's a it's a sad song about people who are taking geographical they're going here and they're trying to fix something that is reparable broken and the speaker knows that he knows he knows well he's doing it which i think is really sad like that's what makes it said it's is a little sad if you'll say well we'll take vacation in that will fix our marriage right but it sadder if both people know it's not gonna work you know and that's the case was is one of the darker realizations of that one of that concept that i think i have done.

Meg to mention all the live shows and all the all the things. So yeah, so we're going back. We're talking. We're going to be talking with some people who are involved in the welcome tonight, fell world. On this episode. We're going to hear from the voice of night Vale. See so Baldwin.

And we'll be talking about the different episodes of the show, our personal reactions to them as well as the global reactions to that. Can I jump in for a second and say what I love about the show that we're doing even though it's the first episode of like the first five minutes of it, this is what's about it for all of unite Ville fans out there who have not been able to come to con- where we've done a panel of who have never got the see us in person or gotten to sort of learn a little bit about what's going on behind the curtain of the show. I think it's really cool that you get three people who've been involved in the show for a very long time, sort of walking you through it and not only sort of talking about what happened, but giving you some insight and, and we'll be answering your questions on occasion as well. So this is this is really for all of you out there who are fans of the show to give you another layer of of knightdale, maybe answer some questions you had or raise some new ones. If we're doing our job. Agreed.
