"Hey everybody welcome to overdo as a podcast about the books you've been meaning to read. My name is craig andrew.

We talked about jules verne on episode one forty nine back in december fifteen gearing up to read the last fifty shades book to Can't imagine that shaded our perception of that book at all andrew Talked about around the world in eighty days for that episode so we have some biographical information in there that we probably won't repeat in this episode. But i will say that Jules verne was born in eighteen. Twenty eight nineteen five. He is one of the most translated novelists in the world. I think agatha christie still has beat. He was potent playwright. He was a lawyer and stockbroker. He did a whole bunch of traveling which we've talked about Your tone of voice is like i know we are. We just talked about this but it was like five years ago. So we'll see you can be a little more expansive well. Let's expand about the fact that he is one of the fathers of science fiction. He's a precursor to h. g. wells. He had this idea of writing. Roma delessio loss. Novels of science and his books were many of them were included in like a. You know a series called les voyage extraordinaire and he would mix up like modern or contemporaneous. Science facts that he liked learning and researching and he'd put them into adventure novels. You might you know. We're talking about around the world in eighty days you're talking about twenty thousand leagues under the sea Many of his novels appeared in installments in magazine by pierre jewel hetzel and i went back and listen to. I was still very interested and still interested in my research today about a novel that verne wrote called paris in the twentieth century which predicted the nineteen sixties and like the technology in the nineteen sixties with cars and Fax machines and that madman the app basically and hetzel was like yoga too wild.

Let's just get started with what you and i both just witnessed at augusta national golf club and utterly dominant performance by dustin johnson. What did you make of that record. Performance i like many others thought Oh boy on sunday. Because he's got such a record holding affinity four zero lead in majors and then when he started out so shakily at in contrast mardi. What did on on saturday in the third round. Which is brilliant. Start i think all of us who were in broadcasting or the few who were there are many are watching on television thought. Here we go again and he. I sent a text dottie pepper. Who is just been a wonderful addition to our broadcast. I think and when when Dustin hit his tee shot on six. Which is a whole. I i get to broadcast. He was six feet away and dotting said before he struck the pud. This might be a defining moment in his final round at he can right this ship here and then in his press conference emperors. He said not shots was the Putt on twelve. I on sex rather and it settled him down and then he was rock solid any finished with a flourish and he deserved the win My gosh at twenty under par seemed appropriate in twenty twenty didn't but all honoring accolades go to me. It's risky deserved. And i love his interview with amanda bali on this i just. I didn't see it until i got home that night and i was struck by his allowing us inside a bit. That's aside dustin johnson that i don't think the public has ever seen before so all in all good week. Kudos for the augusta national for being able to pull it off on kudos to espn cbs. For being able to pull it off. You noted there that johnson had never closed when he held a fifty four hole lead. What do you think that victory proved about him and to him. I think it proved that. He's one of the best golfers in the world is. We needed proof. He's been number. One is number one this year but he was number one in twenty seventeen. But this was a validation of his status in golf And i don't think. I think people would have still been doubters about who wasn't what he was and what what what he was made up. I think it was really really. Somebody's at a coronation. I guess in a way. I don't think the as king wyche aspiration. So you and i were two of the fortunate people that got to be there. Yeah and got to be immersed in a very unique and unprecedented masters tournament for those who didn't get to stand on the grounds. What did it look like to you. Weird empty because i know all the guys who participated in a tournament to a person i think may referred to the absence of patrons We noticed that the people who are lucky enough to attend and many found their place in the lineup that allows them to come back and forth forever and never never and those tickets are very precious and people realize that but those people make the tournament isaac. I've said many times. I was so lucky to be seventeen in eighty six. When jack sank the putt. I have in my life now. Obviously effort lard matter roars. You get you get a hundred thousand bryant denny stadium in tuscaloosa and they can make a little noise and you can ninety three thousand at lsu and they can make even louder. His game especially when properly fuels. Yeah tuned up on that jack daniels. Those those folks get it done marty. They hate it when we grab a grab lsu game and put it on three thirty in the afternoon because we cut into their drinking a bunch of pirates man. They're ready to take the booty. Oh yeah you know. I love doing games there. I loved dead loving and same thing with all be sec schools. But i mean. I just think the absence of people on the grounds with so overwhelmingly noticeable. And i think all of us who were lucky enough to be on the air tried. What's the what's the point was established little. Okay let it go. We don't have to say it over and over and over and over. There's nobody here you could see. There was nobody there and you could sense it. And i think it it didn't diminish from what was what was accomplished there because what was accomplished. I don't know who you know well. I don't want integrate any other people who put on gulf tournaments but i think augusta national fat be forget this year but year puts on. It's the best organized a golf tournament in the world. I believe and to have done it in the face of a pandemic and to have successfully gotten from a to b z and grounded. Champion was magnificent. But i certainly hope in april we will be able to have people back in the stands. It's an unknown right now but we can hope for that completely agree you know one thousand nine hundred six. I wanna can't go through a checklist of the amazing verne. Lundquist calls in a moment. But first let's talk tiger in two thousand nineteen. I've never witnessed anything like that in my career of covering Collegiate and professional sporting events. It was speaking of coronations I think that's an an applicable term for what we saw for tiger. How would you describe what you saw from him. In april two thousand nineteen at augusta incredible because it came out of nowhere. I will obviously not add nowhere. Taggart never comes out of nowhere. But i was certainly among those who When he was in the lowest of lows because his own personal actions and because of the back surgeries so he had some physical and emotional things that with which he had cope. And i i know. He had a successful twenty eighteen finish. But this was the masters. And i just didn't see that coming at all and then i think excellence is awareness. His knowledge of that golf course.
How to Prevent Problems in Your Business Before They Happen
"Super committed to your success online. We've worked with them to a special offer just remarking school listeners. All you have to do is go to dream host dot com slash marking school to learn more and get your website online today. Welcome to another episode of Marketing School I'm Eric Su and I'm Neil Patel and today we are going to talk about how to prevent problems in your business before they happen. So in the early days of business, correct me if I'm wrong Neil I think for most people it's you're finding that you are constantly putting out fires you're dealing with the important and urgent. Now, the problem with that cycle is that more fires will pop up and just continue putting. them out and you never get to solve what is actually urgent or not urgent but important, and these are the long-term foundational things that will help the business and a couple episodes going and the odd turn it over to you knew you were actually just mentioning something about the number one way to scale your marketing. So I think that actually applies here is while they want to kind of go over that again. Yes. So we talked about the number one. Way To scale your marketing we broke down a lot of is process oriented as you're doing things that worked out really well create processes from sin. The way anyone can take him over and continuing going forward with it and scale it up for the things that don't work well document. Why didn't it work hypothesis numbers data backing everything up so that way people know hey, for all the towns that are working event, you'll have a ton of processes that people. Can take over and continue scallop for the stuff that's not working. When they're try new experiments, they can use the data on. Hey, why did this thing work in the past? Would we learn from that as for the stuff that worked? Hey, what were the processes what worked on that and how we can we apply those to these new towns were considering going after? Yes I'm GonNa get specific with these processes so if you are looking for every single companies have Operating System. Once you have a couple of employs you need to be thinking about can I be using traction, which is the entrepreneurs operating system or can be scaling up which is a when you're when you're falling traction. Make sure you by the right traction book. There's two of them don't buy the wrong one. I've had too many people that worked with by the wrong. Oh Yeah. So that's a good point. Gino Wakeman is the author of of this traction. And Scaling Up is from Verne Harnish, who is the founder of Yo entrepreneurs organization, and there's a lot of these different types of operating systems. But these are just two books that I've read but these will teach you how to set a cadence for your company each week. So week, let's say your leadership team you get together you talk about a scorecard that you're going through a real quick. You're talking about you know different rocks or objectives and key results that. You may have set and you are then going to spend a lot of time solving issues, right so maybe sixty minutes of the time, it's ninety minute meeting is ideas identified, discuss and solve, and you can do that. Once to get certain size, you might grow pass this Eos operating system and start to move scaling up or you might create your own version of it right now, the whole idea here is that yarn effect talking about these long term issues And putting a solution in place so you can actually solve that problem and not let it happen again I think in these books as while they also will give you a cadence for what is your quarterly planning every ninety days you do a quarterly planning, what is your annual planning look like as well? Also, there's a book called the three Hag way. So that's a three year planning. Okay, and then you have a be hag which was attended twenty five year. Outlook Right. So you have all these. Right and I think it's also really important. Every quarter what you're trying to do is you ask yourself, Hey, guys, what should we start doing? What should we stop doing and what should we keep doing right? So you have all of these systems in place denise point processes important process will help you scale. You have all these systems in place where hopefully anybody can run the business. Right? Let's say to see you maybe quits leaves whatever or get sick or whatever. You can just plug someone and you're good to go. Right you WANNA make your business defensible and that's what a real businesses otherwise at the end of date once the true business value. There Neil and another thing that you can end up doing to prevent problems I learned this from watching a lot of interviews online and funny enough walking the interviews is kind of similar to the advice that I got from watching Egon must and Elon Musk ended up saying look there's so many CEO's over the years business concepts principles haven't really changed too much. So there's a lot of books on tape of all these successful CEOS from like the IBM CEO to muster whatever it may be people talking about that airs mistakes they made read from, learn them and try to avoid the mistakes that they break down because he's concepts and principles are very similar. and. The moment that you start making the same ones that other people used to make you're going to not succeed really right. But if you avoid making mistakes that other great people have made before you, you're much more likely to succeed because although be left to the stuff that you should be doing. That's a really good point I think learning from CEO interviews or even joining peer groups like you know entrepreneurs organization or wipe yo or visages a lot of these different peer groups that are out there I know for me when I was about twenty seven when I took over single grain, there's a lot that I didn't know and you don't know what you don't know and. These people will guide you because they've been there before you know they'll talk about things that you would have never

Continents on our way to twenty five thousand and it's been great as we've lost our twenty fifth anniversary just to see that it's been a great support group for because we are one of the loneliest professions and we have one of the highest rates of depression. You know it's a serious issue not dear friend commit suicide two years ago in Manila. Philippines. Tried to address those kind of issues super excited that he there, and then today my company scaling up we're couple hundred partners, six continents working with twenty, five hundred clients in any one day, and we now have an ambitious plan. We're literally finishing it up here to take a major sponsor in partnership with Harvard to take that to what we're going to call twenty thousand scale ups like Goldman's ten thousand small business initiative and we think we have the potential partner like Goldman's got BAPS and we have Harvard. Now. We're just looking for the Goldman and we think we know who it is. That's going to help us take that to ten x size of our company. So it's all we've done for thirty eight years as help. Echo what with the with the was the original attention was that originally supposed to be like an entrepreneur support group just let's get a bunch together and just talk about the struggles and the winds in. was that the intention of the beginning? Well, it started as the Association of. Entrepreneurs while I was in college. It was a place for collegiate entrepreneurs back in the early eighties. If you think about it, it wasn't cool to be an entrepreneur most parents of students who wanted to have their own business said look, what are you going to grow up and get a real job? You know do a doctor lawyer accountant so it wasn't cool until Steve Jobs came along and I had the opportunity fortuitous opportunity and that's a story to host the first public speech by Steve when he got fired from apple and I had at that event and Bonaventure Hotel and L. A. Young Michael Dell sitting there with Steve and Mark Cuban's when I first met him and Kevin Harrington who went on to be the infomercial king and Neil Baltar California closets at about almost. Twelve hundred other young entrepreneurs in the audience, and we threw a party that evening for these ace, one, hundred winners, and literally Steve was standing in the corner by himself. and Joe Ed Marlo came over and asked him out on the dance floor which was good. But I realized that there needed to be an organization for this group of lonely people at the top and so it was that night that the idea for what was White Yale Young Entrepreneurs Organization we were all under thirty at the time was birth we then I turned thirty. So we raise the age of thirty five I turned. Thirty five, we raise the age to forty, and then we decided to get rid of the Y. and today is just with with no age range. So that's a quick little brief part of history. Cool with e Oh there is like a minimum threshold. Your Business has to be at accepted into its. I'm curious what the what the thinking behind that is why why there needs to be a minimum for an entrepreneur to be accepted. Well, it's you know seventy six percent of the businesses in the United States it those percentages all pretty much in other parts of the world seventy, six percent of those companies, the entrepreneurs, the only employees Yeah. I would suggest some of those companies.

That's what that me trips, our friends old friends. They've been sponsors in previous quarters or months whatever I don't know what cadence but multiple times before and I think a lot of y'all are probably going down the SEO rabbit hole because of us and because of drifts sponsoring this show. So they're back their sponsors again for a little while yes, and their tool is amazing. We use it constantly to figure out what keywords to rank for to see where we're ranking for certain keywords to find low hanging fruit that we can optimize our keywords to find. Things to keywords to advertise to we use it for so much stuff like we've done in the past we're gonNA share little tips and tricks throughout this sponsorship of ways that we've used H. refs. So look forward to that like that. Yeah. Yeah. So there there's a little bait there. Just. You gotta come back each episode for a while. Now you're gonNA, learn something new around Seo from us or the people have come onto our show because ironically the best people that do seo. US. Tariffs you. Know lies around that but they've got the seven dollars. Yes. Seven days and they're gonNA hook you up. It's so worth it. Yeah. Try it out. So go to a H. R.. E.. F. S. dot com again that is a H. R. E. F. S. DOT COM and it's a seventy seven dollar trial tried out we use them we love them. We're happy to have him as sponsors because we're in there all the time. So you H and Let's go talk to Verne Harnish. Right, we're live finally burn how you doing my friend. Good very well, Joe considering all this craziness, right? Well, even I mean it's craziness but I know you have a new approach turnout a new approach to feel like it's like an iteration of the approach you've been telling folks about a long time and scaling up all of your talks and whatnot. So I think it's I know you're you're approaching it in the right way because I knew you approach to very early on in this pandemic lockdown crisis whether of their term you want be. Yeah. We hit hard that first weekend of March kind of put out our five sees the what companies need to do to kind of make their way through the crisis and I think as you're alluding to the Book Scaling Up. But a lot of folks have had a chance to really scale up we've had actually a great four months. Others have had to scale down. But. As you know, we all have to continue to be scaling forward and that's the only way there is no going back. So we've been out there working with companies on Zaka to do that and I think the key word. Margaret Heffernan used it as a very for speaker back in April a was. This is the time to be ambitious. So I really should have answer your question. How am I doing? Being ambitious this is the time and you know it's a mindset. The research is clear if you see the glass half full or half empty those who see it half full literally are much more successful whatever it is that they're trying to achieve. So and the good news is it's not half full or half empty it's three quarters full. So. If you look at last year's global GDP eighty, eight trillion if it drops globally by twenty five percent that would be a great depression, it would drop into sixty six trillion but to put that in perspective at still twice what the global economy was in the year two thousand. Wow and so we're twice the size even if we dropped twenty five percent. So my view is if you can't find the million, the billion out of ad, it's the constraints really between your ears. And that's what we're trying to address out in the marketplace. We'll to love that and it it just. Yeah that perspective I haven't heard that said like that actually and and if you can't kind of dip in even if you need to scale down a little bit, you're going forward because you're kind of pivoting the times you're you're going with the flow and the principles still ring true from scaling up. I know there's modifications to those which we can talk about what the what the four P.'s right so. Let's go. You know this this Thursday, we're hosting Richard Branson talk about somebody's had you know the ups and downs this summer of having to declare his airline bankrupt yet he's doing one of the biggest deals and space history. With Rolls Royce we've got the CO founder of airbnb nate's coming on and look they. They lost a billion dollars worth of revenue yet or continue and and we have Samir mortals. We have a woman who's got a chain restaurants they've been devastated yet. She launched a new brand. In this crisis, we have a woman with a chain of hotels and a guy with movie theaters, but he was able to buy. His competitor essentially out of bankruptcy for a fraction of what it would have cost. So he actually has about fifty percent more locations, and because he had a good balance eighty was able to really set himself up for when this comes back look few months isn't going to change human. You know hundreds of years and hundreds of thousands of years of human behavior. So even in the most devastated industries, this is a time really to be ambitious it is well, let's let's let's go back just a little bit just to get laid the lay the foundation for the listeners of who you are your story, the Gotcha I, know you founded many. Big. Organizations that a lot of entrepreneurs know about. So take us back a little bit and let's let's then we'll get into the scaling forward well, I grew up around entrepreneurs and my dad and his buddies at at on the Titan Missile Program at Martin Marietta spout launched a very successful company called higher electronics was a rocket ship and then in the. seventy-three recession because a customer ODEM about a half, a million dollars and couldn't which was a lot of cash flow in the in the late sixties they were out of business overnight, and so it really was a riches to rags story and my dad and I become became janitors then applied repair for local sears catalog store and we began to rebuild. So what I do today is very purpose driven because I saw how really devastated my dad he turned drinking and it was it was really tough on the family as well. So you know out of all that I helped kind of build a company in college and then launched what today is the entrepreneurs organization were fourteen thousand members worldwide on..

"So. The first thing you want to do is look at what we have to do to be three to five times better than the competition and bachelor starting point, and to get there, you've gotta get four decisions right He's got to nail the people strategy execution and cash, and I wish business was that neatly organized, but it's helpful to put it in those four buckets because at the end of the day scaling anything is about making better decisions and so it's the sum total of the decisions you make good and bad every hour every day every year the determined whether you're you've got the edge. This is an intro in Intro intro. Flow chart that with your four. Hey. Welcome back to the UN podcast. Hey, we're back. We are back. This is an amazing episode with. Sort of another legend we've been getting a lot of legends lately and we are blessed to be blessed with legends. Yes. On this podcast this blessed podcast. My Gosh. Yeah. No. This is a fun conversation and it was with a man. By the name of Verne Harnish yes who's written some very iconic books in our space. The basically actually yeah. The to to mastering the Rockefeller Habits and then you have scaling up and we talk about each one is used in different phases. So we'll break that down I, think in the interview a little bit. Vern is definitely a legend. Yeah. I think you and I, we saw him speak I think trafficking version summit maybe four, four, three or four years ago I remember we saw him on stage. We gotta get this guy on the show. I wanted things he was sitting in the audience watching an interview this guy, and here we are three or four years. Later we have Verne Harnish on the show. Yeah. It's really cool going back even further I was working with my partner at the time mean Shah and remember he was obsessing over scaling up and it was always that book on his desk and I was like what is breaking book like it looks like a textbook like it's hard covered 'cause we have it on the desk in front of us right now, and if you open it up, it looks kind of like textbook has all these like color coded sheeps and. Like, models to fill in and in image was telling me is like at this is like put your big boy pants on basically if you want to grow a business, this is who you learn from and this is your textbook. Yeah. Yeah. So I mean in this episode, we're actually going to talk about some of the core concepts from scaling up but we're also to talk about the implications right now in this sort of post covid world by. Post Kovic. Visit World Yeah. So you know how how do things look a little bit different through some of these scaling up processes in the current environment we're in. That's just like one of the topics we talked to what's in its modeled from. Yeah. The scaling up process which a lot of people are familiar with A. But if you're not, it makes a lot of sense to it's it's basically long short is like if you want to scale up in these times right now or you just want to scale down and become more profitable. That too, and he gives you the four steps to do that, and then also give some very actionable tactical advice on how to connect with influencers luxury brands, how to actually get to get past the gatekeepers of the people that are higher. The companies could partner with some big names. Diane those are actually sweet hacks. Yeah. Influence or kind of just getting like basically become their friends. Yeah and then you know we talk a lot about the dream one hundred concept. He's got a similar concept that that you and I we talked about way back when we saw speak because he spoke about this topic and it actually became sort of a framework for how we continually get bigger and bigger name guests. There's like this whole like full coming full circle element to this where like the way we get guests on our show is essentially what he's teaching this show but we learned this from him three or four years ago learned from the legend. That's crazy. So Verne Harnish, she gotta you gotTa definitely listen to what he says. CHECKOUT SCALING UP? Dot Com that's his website. He gives away so many free resources on their videos. There's actually a video like breakdown pretty much like another version of what he can does here, we just go down rabbit holes of course..

If you were hanging around outside of Wrigley Field the day before a playoff game in a normal year, the neighborhood would be buzzing trucks delivering food and beer to the ballpark. Street vendors hawking souvenirs. And hundreds of fans creating an electric atmosphere. But in 2020 not so much, it's obviously wait quieter. It's It's definitely weird with her mask on 54 year old Chicago and Colleen getting sitting with friends at a table space far apart from the others. In the beer garden at Bernie's across the street from Wrigley, Watching the Cubs play the crosstown rival white socks over the final weekend of the season. It's definitely different is definitely weird. But the diehards are out and we love the sport. It's only a few diehard fans that air in this place, which would normally be packed shoulder to shoulder 42 year old Cubs fan Paul Schmitz doesn't mind. This the first time we've seen the game together this year, Schmitz is watching with his friend Steve Nick, who's a Sox fan? Yeah, I mean, it's it does not being able to go to games. But it's nice being able to just go on an outdoor area like this, and it's been really refreshing. After you know, for five months and nothing White Sox fans and Cubs fans rarely see eye to eye on many here in Chicago are thrilled that both teams are in the playoffs. That's only happened twice before, in 2008 and Way way back in 1906. But the White Sox beat the Cubs in the World Series in a normal season. Lifelong Sox fans, even Daven would take his family to a few games that he'd often watch others with friends at a bar and while that is now possible on a limited basis, Yeah, Verne is taking in the strangely wonderful season from his couch with a cold beer in his hand. I can't think better distraction, especially in a town like Chicago That certainly is bruised from 2020 for a bunch of different reasons. Rivals for more than a century, Davern says. Having both the Cubs and the White Sox in the playoffs gives the entire city something to cheer about a family party. Should involve some kind of a Disagreement about the Cubs in the socks and it's it's It's the greatest Chicago discussion and I think it's accidentally uniting in some ways, and in the year like 2020 or everything. Is this so Divisive, Of course, the dream matchup Here's for the Cubs and the socks to play each other in the World Series. As unlikely as that may be. The cruel joke of 2020 is That no matter who wins in the playoffs, the World Series will be in a neutral ballpark in Texas, and fans won't be there. David Shaper. NPR NEWS

No No. The one that's delivered in the car where Wilson is getting slapped around by the tentacles, the tentacled squid baby I believe. He's listed as alien son. Wait wait. You're not pulling my leg I'm hundred percent serious. But. Sizing, does it make sense? Well, it burnt traders listed as alien son. So I'm trying to wrap my head around what other character was an alien son in that movie and that's the only one that jumps to mind. This.

"verne" Discussed on The Wade Keller Pro Wrestling Podcast
"Net. And he He and I discussed Monday night raw. And also what? We'll be talking about today on interview Thursday here on W. Towards life test the death of Verne Ganja at age eighty nine and we are I'm excited to be able to talk about what Verne Ganja meant to me. As a wrestling fan again as I did on Tuesday and what he meant to professional wrestling with two people who had a chance to follow his career closely in different roles and the first person could bring on is Mick car she worked for Verne. Ganja as part of the Awa in Las Vegas on the ESPN tapings. Mika former pro wrestling torch columnist a frequent guest here at torch live cast on Nick. Welcome back to the life cast. Thank you way too good to be here. I. It's great to have you on. Thank you for taking time to be on today's show. I'm really glad that we could put together. Show a talking about Vern Ganja and I know you have a lot to say about them. I want to introduce our second guest in. That is Sod Buster Kenny Jay. Who WORKED FOR GANJA FOR SO many years? Kenya's this you are you there. Yeah I'm Wayne Kenny. Thinks he's doing. I'm doing great. Thank you for taking time away from busting sod to join us here on the show to appreciate it absolutely. Well I talked about what Vernon to me on Tuesday so I'm not going to repeat it today. The first wrestling show I ever went to was Verne's retirement so I came in as a fan at the end of Verne. Ghana's reign as a full time wrestler. I watched them on. Tv for years. But the first show. I got Lau was may of Nineteen eighty-one retirement match seventy thousand plus sold out crowd against Nick Balk Winkle and of course you know he made a few coming out of retirement matches but Kenny you obviously knew vern as a wrestler as an employee and as a friend. I'd love for you I to talk a little bit about your background with Ganja and how you I met him and how. You ended up on television as a wrestler. Well you know I I used the wrestling Chicago Milwaukee then with the army and then they came out of the army and and as sixty two then came back down to Minneapolis. And then I got the duress. Lula Douala car promoter and then that's how you got started and then pretty soon verne was there. You know you know we're in a great Great Wrestler and he loved wrestling. And you know he was a great great promoter so I I can't take anything away from the guy and I I really really. I'm going to miss. When is the last time that you had a chance to talk to earn? Well we we did a deal here at the place here in the on Chicago Avenue. Forty six to the Beatles and when they redid the wrassling movie jazz and Warren was there. This is probably Five years ago or so you know what I was in real good shape and I got to talk to him. I other shake his hand and do more wonderful wonderful thing I ever did. And also you know.
Difference Between a Maker and an Engineer in the Maker Movement
"Been this series of articles by a fellow who we've talked about on the show before Michael Mola's Hugh who's thankfully been around for quite a while and has not walked away like so many others have because they didn't get rich quick or something But he he's sticking to it and he's been writing a series of articles about the maker movement since make media went kind of bankrupt. They've re the make media folks have reinvented themselves into nonprofit and from what we hear Dale dougherty the guy who He didn't actually started. He started with The fellows O'Reilly Timaru Riley and Tim O'Reilly said ticket. And he got up and left and made his own little thing and and he and from what we hear. He has taken his own money and purchased from the holders. The people that owned the the properties to everything To get at the content and the titles and the names and things so supposedly Dale dougherty. Now Kinda owns it and what we hear. He's looking at making it into a nonprofit which sounds good. I think that might be the better way to go. And we'll talk about why in a second but mister you has kind of featured What's been happening to this? I'm using my finger. Air Quotes Maker Movement One thing about Mr use articles that he's never really stated explicitly and we would like to is the distinct and explicit difference between a maker and an engineer. So let's make something clear. People have been making things for quite a while. We've had the wheel for a while. Now it's just a few years. I didn't get invented when make make magazine came out. You know the fact. We've had these people. These strange beings go by the handle engineer for quite a while. Now but what's the difference between an engineer and a maker and there is a difference. I mean you can be an engineer and a maker of course sure but we believe that. There is an explicit distinction. That makes a person a maker versus engineer. And that's a person who's making something just for the sake of making it. They're not making it to meet a specific objective for some external pressure. Thing like you got to make this. They're not they're not. There's no gold. There's no necessarily a contract or a thing that has to be fixed because nobody really needs a life-size animated giraffe that they can drive around make refer cool and nobody really needs a giant statue with flames coming out of who knows what orphans. You really don't have. Don't give them any ideas. And if we look at the roots of the even the maker Faire and make media they themselves went to the artists from the burning men community and brought them in along with the folks who were the. What do you call them again? The the Jules Verne fanatics that water steam pulse team. And they do things just for the sake doing for the fun of it for the art of it for their motion of it and and we believe that defines a maker. That's what makes them maker and there's some differences in that in that light because now a maker does not necessarily mean they're an engineer. They could be an artist. Could be musician. They could just be a ten year old kid. Who's not sure what? What are your she wants to be or do that. But it sounds like fun to make this thing. That could be fun. It would be cool water. Some of the more impressive things you see more. Technically complex things you see are being made by people who are in their day jobs engineers and some of the ten year old kids grow up to become engineers because they were inspired by it in their in their youth. But but yeah. I think you're right in the. The central motivation is different now. Going to a university and interviewing some engineering. Phd's about the maker Movement. Is that kind of problematic? Because are they makers well? Yeah they're makers doing things for the fun of it. Some of them are the market. They've they've got their their budgets. They have to meet. They've got their students that got to teach the their goal directed there. I mean they could be makers they monto sit back and develop something fun. That's well within the realm of reality for them but that's not that's not their career. They're not making a career as a quote maker. Very few people do right. And as such what has to question if the whole idea of a maker movement makes sense for a financial endeavor probably not Does the maker Movement make sense as the basis for stem Maybe to get the initial interest. Yeah it's motivating that would be great but as the foundation for Stem I. I don't I don't think so. I think traditional education environments are essential for stem. You still have to learn the basics you still have to have the foundations all right and to be an engineer. You still have to know details that most makers just don't want to sweat sure but you can you can when you're trying to get kids motivated to learn stuff showing them you know some application of it that that interests them. Yes is much much more important. Oh Yeah Oh sure I mean I. It's it's in my opinion. It's a lot more fun than shooting at Aliens on screen sure area. But but I mean I I I show my kids. You know something that they're interested in. They're interested in building. Somebody I say okay well. Here's here's you know how you start but then you need your math. You Gotta learn this math in order to do this process. You know all right. So there's some motivation to learn some math skills that ordinarily most young folks say. Why do I need this? Yeah well you need it. In order to make the bullet go further right exactly. The Little Arrow go further at that. Get that piece to fit better. Whatever and this was never made clear by Mr you in any of his articles each simply kind of like most of the make media related kind of stuff just kind of glossed over the fact that there is a big difference between Disciplined Foundation Engineering and shoot from the hip having fun maker. Let solder it together and see if it works. It doesn't make is not synonymous with open source. No I don't agree with that Open source has a strong engineering foundation. All Open source came came from the software world. I mean I remember the early. Pdp Lebanon's they. The deck people sat here. It's open source that you could play with it and do whatever you want with it. But in the end we want in right and a lot of that is happening in this commune. This word. Yeah we do see that So it's not automatically you know. Open source equals maker. No I don't agree with that But there is overlap. Yeah definite overlap But that doesn't equate open source does not equate to the maker.

An Introduction to the Industrial Revolution
"We're going to look at the consequences of this revolution first and then you'll see how important it is to understand first of all. Here's a definition of the industrial revolution. It's the use of steam engines to produce power instead of the ways going back thousands of years wind water and muscle and the second definition of the industrial revolution is it's the rapid social change that flows from that introductory machine in other words. The steam engine is quite literal definition of the industrial revolution but what were the consequences consequences of using the steam engine instead of wind water and muscle rapid social change was the answer the industrial revolution's chief product product was a world in constant change mainly in the areas of transportation and communications think about it this way at the beginning of the nineteenth century that is the eighteen hundreds the army of Napoleon did not move faster really then the armies of Julius Caesar Two thousand years earlier so in terms of transportation you couldn't get from Point A. Point B. Any faster Mr in one thousand nine hundred then you could in say five hundred. BC however by the end of the eighteen hundreds it was possible to go around the world in eighty days which was of course the title of Jules Verne's famous novel and you could send Semaphore. I four messages in a flash from one continent to another so that gives you a sense of the rapid changes in technology to just use one example news in eighteen hundred was very slow and very selective. It was only available to the rich in order to buy a newspaper. You had to have enough money to buy a newspaper which was certainly not cheap and news production production was quite slow and in fact the the whole concept of news did not exist until the industrial revolution brought it into existence in order to have news. You have to have change in society but if people were living in eighteen hundred you're pretty much the way they lived in say five hundred they would not be expecting to read much in a newspaper. Even if they could afford one they couldn't afford one but they didn't even have the concept of news. News requires a society that changes and the society never really changed changed not for the common people that's why when we study history we tend to study kings and generals and statesmen and what they do because at the level of the common people there's not much historical change to talk about so there was no concept of news news but by the eighteen thirty s and eighteen forties thanks to the industrial revolution which started in England news production began to increase and also thanks to the Industrial Revolution Printing presses were produced which were so advanced that they could produce a newspaper for only a penny and for example in eighteen thirty two. You have the first Penny newspaper The New York Sun in the United States of America now that was going to revolutionize politics because for the first time relatively poor people could afford to buy a newspaper for only a penny and once they could read the news once they purchase it. They could read it and once they could read it. They knew what was going on and then it became a factor in politics. newspaper editors would have to pay attention to the opinions of the poor whereas before the poor never had an opinion because they could not know what was going on and in the nineteenth century in Europe and America newspaper Editors Editors Editors were the political kingmakers who could select candidates and mobilize people to support them so the industrial revolution created the technology that gave people a reason to look for news and the means to look for the news because of the relatively cheap cost of the printing press and the ability to turn out a newspaper for just a penny any so this is one way in which the industrial revolution was going to revolutionize society in the next podcast. We're going to be looking at the first country to experience an industrial revolution.
An Interview with Space Historian, Rod Pyle
"Here with our next guest rod pile space historian he's worked with NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory and the Johnson Space Center and as written a lot as well he was written for PBS and well you also can involve with Deep Space Nine and Battlestar Galactica say if engine interesting stuff thanks for being with us thanks for having me and it's you know some people would call me a diverse career background person other people would call me a dilettante but yeah I'll check whatever well you can choose how you decide so let's start with what you did and have done for NASA so I had it kind of worked around the edges of that off and on back in that the ninety is mostly doing television production so occasionally we'd cross over into what NASA was doing but I was the car the employee of theirs but then about two thousand nine I got hired to write this really interesting program they wanted an executive training program the partnership between NASA and this group called the copper toward other York so I got together with the guy from IBM and we wrote up this training program and did that for a couple years I was great fun because if you're gonna talk you gonna give people lectures about how great space age was having a standard five behind with the profits but it's cool the gastric salute that was really fun and then finally the on time about two thousand twelve I guess two thousand thirteen I started working for Jeff horse migratory Pasadena on as needed basis writing books and articles for them and that that was really cool because now you're sitting there talking with the guys they call this stuff happens so this guy worked on many relator arm the rover and this guy over here worked on some kind of inflatable antenna system for CubeSats they're just brilliant really dedicated people that are so passionate excited about what they do and of course that that translates into you if you're listening to open hopefully the writing he's on a little bit about Mars making contact and also the blueprint for a battle star Margaret your contact was a cooperative they're both coffee table books in the sense Mars make contact was I'd written two books before the kind of looked over the Mars missions from mostly the American perspective somewhat from the Russian perspectives albeit perspective but they didn't have the kind of like we did so there's much more of an American story there and then as we got about twenty fifteen twenty sixteen won the publishers I work with said you know we really like to look at everybody's projects so that means the United States and Europe and Japan's made the Tampa and and India actually succeeded with their very first try a couple years ago and they want to do a picture book of it so I thought well this is great and actually got paid to do so I got to go hang out the archive your post laboratory and a few other places in big draw the old photos and interview the folks that worked on so forth so it's just really fun kind of a broad look at that basically everything that's happened since about nineteen sixty four four I think all the NSS what's that actual spaces ID at the group the oldest prose base human spaceflight group out there it was actually founded as a wage to organizations that merge one of them was founded by Werner von Braun the father the Saturn five back in nineteen seventy is and then the other group sub group was formed by a guy got to the office of the guiding Jerry o'neill was big the space colonies use a visionary at Princeton so those two groups merged a few years later and form the society so it's just a huge pros based advocacy group they have some political action they do I edit a magazine called ad astra which is a nice splashy quarterly periodical and then we got your the conventions and education programs in stem programs and so forth that you just really good good group of people I listened to I don't know who's a podcast of some broadcast of some kind that you were involved in and it was I learned a lot from it and you talked about whether it would make more sense next to go to the moon again or to try to go to Mars can you talk about the the risk reward present kinds of each of those so this is the longest you want to start a food fight one of the space advocacy groups just an argument going up moreover Mars or vice versa and it's been going on for a long time we've been talking about going to the moon sense Jules Verne wrote about it the eighteen hundreds with talk about going to Mars at least since the nineteen forties one or one about brown started writing seriously about it really before that with the various other visionaries and the question always been you know which ones cheaper wall so we did the moon in the nineteen sixties with their power projects so we know that that's doable and I would say it's behind us but we kind of picked the low hanging fruit there so the question now is what limited budgets and limited frankly attention span with both the public and Congress which one do you pick well Mars program is a very ambitious goal would be very inspiring for people but it could be anywhere from hundreds of billions to by some estimates as much as a trillion dollars and it's a long trip you know by the time you go out do you think there and come back it could be a year and a half two years and we just don't yet quite know enough about the effects of extended space flight on people both in terms of no gravity and also the radiation out there I'm kind of understand it but we need to know more about how to mediate it now to keep her from damaging people so the moon just makes an awful lot of sense in terms of something that's cheaper ball there's a lot of science rewards there there's a lot of training and work we could do towards getting to Mars and probably most importantly as it turns out recently discovered that in the last decade there's a lot of frozen water water on the south for the modem the ice and where you got water you can melt that make rockets you'll need make readable aired you can make drinking water you can go all kinds of stuff there's also metal and glass and some other elements on the moon that are very useful so for every bit of that you find there and can use their or used to go beyond to Mars let's say that's a whole bunch of stuff you don't have to watch in the space so you can use smaller rockets you save money at all just gets much much much easier so for my money the moon the next logical step and plus the the reward of going to Mars is more strictly scientific not so much commercial writing like did there's a possibility at least in a distant fantasy to manufacture on the moon maybe it will be cheaper somehow and you just kick the stuff back to earth and you can have a an earth the type of crowded and dying because of so much industry on a you can have all the industry up there I mean is that a crazy crazy I'm think of a thing or is that at least something you could end that might be a reason to go to the moon well I think that's what the settlement discussion comes and that's one of the things the national space society is very focused on so that you know it's not a fantasy it's doable it's workable we know that we've got everything in place with today's technology if we just get off our behind the bill what separates those founder of Amazon is so keen about he formed a rocket company actually before you on must did the SpaceX based Basil's former tropical blue origin back in two thousand and gives express purpose was to move heavy manufacturing off over do it in space or is not going to hurt anybody allow the plant to heal you go back to it you know like state if you well and give people options to live and work awesome first because there's a lot more resources even the local solar system then there is honor if you just have to go out and get up so this pretty compelling financial argument here and as you know as well as I do when there's a profit to be made suddenly things start moving a lot faster so I think that or on the cusp of right now so wouldn't it be my got would say be prohibitively expensive to manufacture stuff on the moon but that's not the case it doesn't have to be the case the thing is is to make getting there for the first few dozen times less expensive than what we're doing it with the Saturn five back in the nineteen sixties it cost a bundle you know in today's dollars the proper Graham would have been about a hundred and fifty billion under sixty billion she so that was expensive for six landings but nowadays when you have you on must flying as rockets for in some cases virtually a bird or or less than the other commercial providers are in there already cheaper than it was the nineteen sixties and their reusable they fly back to home base robotic we all by themselves and landed the refuelling be used again and Bayless is doing something very similar and other companies trying to get in on the act now you're reducing costs down by be be a factor of ten or alternately a hundred when you start reaching those numbers suddenly going out and doing stuff on the moon it's very affordable makes a lot of sense on the other side of that is once you're there you got these manufactories going your commoditized the stuff they put a price on it so whether it's U. S. government or private industry restore be international sector that matter saying al all by that gallon of liquid oxygen for this many dollars space credit or whatever we call them at that point now you've got a really calm me out there it becomes very much like how the free market works on earth and again but there's money to be made people will go so you in fact have kind of a gold rush out there so it's really not as far fetched as one might think this other minerals out there that it would make it worth any chances oil on the moon the if you gotta have you gonna have I you have animals sorry all rights are you got of the dinosaurs you got to have plant matter all right right sorry sorry to be down there what no but there is there is healing and three which is a form helium that can be very useful for fusion we're still struggling to get to work but if you can get yours no work at what times work a lot of money only now going up there get that stuff you're gonna make a bundle so yeah very

"Do in the world of sports what your who's your favorite composer Mendelssohn, but I've got a shortlist divorce Mendelssohn. I heard some pianist was on an interview for Graham, and he was asked to list his favorites. And he said your life is not full if you don't leave a little room for ruckman, and I love that phrase. And and we we enjoy his music to Verne Lundquist a man of a man of many passions. You know, his voice from some of the most seminal moments in the history of support. His new book is play by play calling the wildest games in sports from SEC football to college basketball, the masters more. I have to say the masters and more the more includes NSL and apparently an Pezzo for strings who. Thank you, very. Thank you. Mike was pleasure.

"verne" Discussed on Only A Game
"Wallich Verne Lundquist new book is play by play calling the wildest games in sports. All hell will break loose. That's what university of Maryland. President Wallace low told the board of regents about what would happen if football coach DJ Durkan was reinstated. And that's where we're going to start this week on three stories, you should know. I'm joined by the Boston Globe and prince yadi and the Wall Street Journal's Jason gay welcome back to both of you. I Garrett thank you. So I was totally sucked into the Maryland house appropriations committee meeting this week. That's a sentence. I never thought I'd say just a recap Maryland linemen, Jordan McNair died of heatstroke last spring investigations found instances of what I'm going to describe as abusive treatment of players the head coach was briefly reinstated. Then fired and the university president is retiring, but won't really say why. But what that university president will say to lawmakers under oath is that a university chancellor ignored his recommendation to fire coach DJ. Durkan and overstepped by bringing the coach back, and it might be totally silly of me. But I have this hope that this whole thing puts those who would put winning football games over the health and safety of players on notice. Jason I know you're gonna tell me I'm being far too optimistic. So go ahead. You might be being far too optimistic. This is yet another example of the sort of win at all costs culture, which is pervasive in college sports, and you look at a program like Maryland joined the big ten head full years ago with big plans on improving and growing its footprint in the world of football hasn't panned out that way, but you when you see the kind of conflict that was happening at the national level between the board between the president. You realize the stakes that are involved in how warped the system has become. I have a note in front of me that says Maryland is playing Ohio State this weekend smiley face smiley face. So that's two programs that have. I've been embroiled in scandal over the past year and wall a player didn't die on coach urban Meyer's watch which I think is an important distinction. He was fairly clearly involved in protecting an assistant coach who was credibly accused of domestic violence. He's going to be on the sideline this weekend. And I think that can pretty much be boiled down to the fact that urban Meyer has like a seventy nine and nine record and TJ Dirk. And I think was eleven and fifteen right. So no, I don't think that this is Representative of some shift in college at rice where everyone's going to try to do the right thing. Now, you know, every time something awful like this happens. I always find myself thinking, this is the tipping point. This is the moment. And I am always disappointed nor you're up the deadline passed for Steelers running back Leon.

"There's ever been a more interesting handoff than than what we're doing on this program. We've thank Verne for being here and equally the to welcome Chris Fowler to our studio, Chris. Those stories are pure gold. So I can't follow those stories, but I do appreciate sharing the room with you with them in the same. Thank you very much. And it's, I am. As I am a fan of Verne's an equal fan of yours. I fed callous times the the time I spent with you on game day was a memory that it was. It was harrowing time, but it was a memory that will forever be etched in my in my memory Bank is one of the greatest in crazy, feel welcome because he brought to the show. I brought you a gift because throughout the years in the south, mostly we've took our show to the south. We were shower with thoughtful gifts, usually had some local importance. Kentucky was the most spittle or three bottles of bourbon on one visit in one hotel room, which was hard to top, but Auburn used to give us beautiful baked goods. They said the holiday. So this is from the Upper West side. It's heavy see cookie in their ways about half a pound, but it comes from a famous Baker, that's all the guidebooks and all the tourists come any work and they line up down the block. Don't ask me why. And my wife did not lineup, Jennifer knows the secret second bakery, which is the same. Place around the corner with. There's never aligned that the guidebooks don't have. So those are pretty sinful. Our chocolate walnut chocolate peanut butter might be one oatmeal in there. If you're not for the faint of heart, if you don't wanna go all in, but I hope you enjoy. Thank you very much. I really appreciate. That's what a wonderful, not bourbon, but it's it's, it's, I will never forget. I was. I was at Kentucky one day talking to you on game, then you told me about the bourbon. I said they barely. They brought me water, but went from the school one from the ethnic department and one for the football team. I wasn't argue with the crossover. There's a million things I wanna talk to you about. But if we mentioned game day and you host twenty five years, I, I mean that had to be as Verne's ride through through college football and golf that had to be one of the all-time journeys for anyone's career. I think that a lot of best things in life and best things in your professional life also are. Accidents and game day was an accident. I never went to SPN, tend to studio show certainly know it not a pre game college football show because there wasn't one that existed. When I first got ESPN, we sort of built it brick by brick, a group of people. Certainly Mr. Corso being cook in the early years, very prominent Craig.
