"It is a place of reflection and reverence that I humbly think has been ignored. Outside the mansion's Gates, young can supporters say he's shown up for black Virginia's. He's pushed for more funding for historically black colleges and launched a new partnership with the mostly black city of Petersburg. He announced the project last month. Whether it's increased access to healthcare facilities, increased opportunities for mobility, expanded education options. You all spoke and we listened. But Don Scott, the top Democrat in Virginia's House of delegates isn't buying it. If it's a mostly white conservative audience, he'll try to raise white grievance towards black people. When he's with black audiences, he'll say, we're going to teach all of the history. Still, youngkin is a coveted speaker for GOP candidates across the country, this fall. That's fueled speculation that he may have his eyes on a new home. The White House, for NPR news, I'm Ben pavia, and Richmond. While inflation is still running hot in much of the economy, gas prices are falling fast. Sarah Gonzalez with her planet money podcast recently tried to break down the price of gas sent by scent to figure out why it acts so strangely. Okay, gas is going for just under $4 a gallon right now. That's the national average. So let's call it a clean $4. Severn bornstein at UC Berkeley's energy institute says one thing has the biggest impact on gas prices. Crude oil, which is the raw ingredient that makes up our gasoline. Right now, a barrel of crude oil is going for about a $100. Well, let's say if a barrel of crude oil is a $100, $2 and 40 cents of the price of the gasoline is paying for the crude oil. So if you could put raw crude oil into your car, you'd only pay about $2 and 40 cents at the pump. But you can't. Well, yeah. Right, okay. So now we have to refine the crude, turn it into gasoline. And if you've ever wondered what refining is, it is basically boiling oil and collecting the vapor. Doing that, boring scene says, adds about 65 cents to our gallon of gas right now. And that's all the costs of the refinery equipment and labor, the profit they make and so forth. So 65 cents for refining, plus $2 and 40 cents for the raw crude oil. We are $3 and 5 cents into our $4 gallon. Then we start adding taxes. 18.4 cents is the federal gas tax, and that has been the federal gas tax since 1993. It hasn't changed. The federal gas tax goes to things like highway maintenance. So we are at $3 and 23 cents and four tenths of a penny, now the state taxes. State taxes vary enormously, but average in the United States about 30 cents a gallon. So we're at like $3, 50 cents ish. Right. But we still haven't delivered the gasoline to the gas stations, and we still haven't paid to operate the gas stations. This is the final step, and these numbers are harder to pin down, bornstein says. It depends a lot on where a gas station is in the middle of a city or the middle of nowhere. Land costs are different and labor costs are different, but typically that's going to add another 20 to 50 cents a gallon. Which brings us to at most $4 and three cents, and four tenths of a cent. So that is our $4 gallon, which is lower than a few months ago, right? And we know why it's lower. Basically, for most of the pandemic, no one was driving, and the cost of crude oil went down to $0 and at one point negative dollars. Oil and gas companies were like, oh, at $0, it is not worth it to look for new oil or refine it. Yeah. The industry more or less stop drilling. Ryan Kellogg is an economist at the University of Chicago. Then he says, two things happened. A bunch of people basically decided the pandemic was over, started driving again, and much of the world stopped taking Russian oil. Demand was up and supply was down, refineries couldn't keep up. Refineries at their maximum capacity. Prices went through the roof. And there is a saying that the solution to high gas prices is high gas prices because it makes companies look for more oil and refine more. And this happened, when oil and gas prices hit record highs, companies found ways to refine more. And they decided to start drilling again. But Kellogg says that takes time. You lay off a bunch of rig crews in 2020, now it's 2022. It's not like those people are just sitting around waiting for you to call them. It's taken a while to get back to the pre-pandemic oil supply, but we're getting there, which is partly why prices have dropped. Also, people stopped driving over high gas prices

I mentioned Adam kinzinger, some of these other folks up in D.C. who say, oh, we're really good for Republicans, but man, they're doing all the beating of the Democrats. Now, you've got sort of a similar situation on a local basis, right? Oh, yeah. Yeah. I think about the term wolf in sheep's clothing. And you've heard of rhinos, there's a guy that I'm running against, he's a supervisor in Louisa county, and there's a letter floating out there from a highly decorated Vietnam veteran who also served in this senator dick black and he's done some research and some other people have done some research and they found out that my opponent ran for Republican in the West Virginia House of delegates in 1982. And then he betrayed the Republican Party at a time when the Democrats were pushing the socialist pro abortion agenda. He left the Republican Party and joined that group and he ran at the Democrat in 82 with Walter Mondale and that crowd and then he ran the Democrat in 84 and then he moved to Virginia into this district where I'm running to be the state Senate and ran against one of the most conservative members of the House delegates Frank hargrove and Hanover county, who's a very beloved member of the House of delegates and against governor Allen who was on the ballot and he basically was on the ballot with Clinton. So he supported the Clinton and never seen the guy I mentioned the word Trump support Trump, anything else. He was supposed to be, but I'll tell you what, he's getting money. And so we've got to figure that out because people don't know this. There are

John McGuire Talks About Hosting an Event to Support Pres. Trump

"Your support for former president Trump and this event that you are throwing and you're inviting everybody to come to it. Yes, you know, if you're sick and tired of government overreach, I hope you'll come out tomorrow. He's going to go down in history as having done more and four years for the American people than any president ever did in 8 years. And it's kind of funny, but true, but in the Virginia House of delegates in 2019, I had a Republican tell me I better not put a Trump flag on my truck or I'll lose because he was afraid, so I put two Trump flags on my truck and I drove around for 6 months and I had the second biggest win in Virginia. So I'm a big Trump supporter and they've treated him worse than any president ever and you mentioned earlier the double standard. There's two systems. There's the Democrat law and the Republican law. Can you talk about the 33,000 emails? You talk about the laptop and everything else that they're just covering up and then they're going to go down there and raid is exactly what it is. It's a rate. So we're going to protest that. We're going to support Trump and it will be tomorrow, Saturday 13 August, one to 3 p.m.. It will be at the food line in mannequin savage, which is gutzman county, Virginia. We live right down the road. But it will be 30 broad street road and we're telling people to wear your Trump gear, bring your Trump flags, bring your American flags, we'll have some special guest speakers there and everybody else.

Statewide the Virginia, lieutenant governors raised Virginia governors race with junkin, the Seattle city attorneys race.

He says, oh, there's thousands of ballots we're still defined. He's pulling his best Tony Soprano. Frank Underwood impression possible trying to declare a state of emergency to go find ballots. Republicans had momentum. We won everything you could possibly have asked for and then some. Republicans were riding high and they weren't riding high because voters showed up in record numbers and said, hey, you know, mister junkin, you know what we need? We need electric charging vehicle stations. You know what we need mister junkin? We need to go spend $1.2 trillion that we don't have. No. Mom's and dad showed up and they voted for Republicans in the first time in a decade because they sought was happening in their schools. Rural parts of Virginia showed up in record numbers at a higher percentage clip than they even did support Donald Trump and Republicans started to build this coalition. That was pro family and also anti leftist. That ran up against the power structures of the Central Intelligence Agency, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the abuse within.

I want to go to 56 and 57 in order, let's play cut 56 a little bit about the Virginia election results play cut 56. This is not going to go Republican. And this is a state that has not had a statewide Republican since 2009 about McDonald's governor at the Senate level at the gubernatorial level. The state was bright blue. Right. Yesterday. And now that's a next January state is going to be almost entirely in control of Republicans. And that's, you know, that's a bloodbath. And a state that Democrats are dominated, dominated for the past decade. And Republicans have taken control of the Virginia House of delegates 51 49 that no one saw coming. Cut 57, John Carl from ABC says this is a sonic boom of a wake-up call for Democrats, but they won't heed the wake-up call instead, you have Pelosi and Schumer say, oh, this is why we need to go spend these trillions of dollars we don't have on programs that are unpopular. Honestly, Democrats, I hope you guys try to implement CRT in every single school district across the country, not because it's good for the country, super damaging, but voters hate it so much that it's the greatest political gift to conservatives you could imagine. Play cut 57. George, this is a sonic boom of a wake-up call for Democrats. Biden won Virginia by ten points just a year ago. He won New Jersey by 16 points. And the big factor is the one you mentioned, Republicans vastly outperformed in the suburbs. That is precisely where the battle for control of Congress will be waged next year in the midterm election. And so all across the country, you are seeing this trend.

"But what we've actually been doing is working in the heavily populated Democrat areas or what they call in the soft Democrat areas and the independent areas. And believe it or not, you know, we're getting at least one sign on every street and elected areas because we realize that, you know, we don't go in as, hey, I'm a Republican run, and we go in and say, hey, you know, we get to know them. We try to talk about the issues. And then we tell them, here's where we stand. Here's what we're trying to do to help your community in our community and the people in Newport News in the 94th district. And getting a lot of good receptions. So we kind of done it the opposite. We're not trying to we're not spending a lot of time pushing out Republicans because we know that they're going to go vote. We just, you know, here in the next week or so, we'll make sure that they do go vote. We've actually been really trying to hit the other areas. And one of the things that's happened is a lot of the areas we go to, they say you're the first person that's ever come here. Nobody ever comes here. Nobody ever talks to us. You know, yet many of them still go vote, but they're like, nobody ever talks to us. And so we gain votes just because we showed up and talked to him. Let's talk about some of those issues that you're talking about. I think one of the ones it doesn't matter who's running for House delegates or if you're running for governor and lieutenant governor attorney general it's the topic to George education. It's about the issues now. Governor mcauliffe, you know, during his debate, made a little bit of a gaffe saying that parents should not be involved in their education. I have a little bit of a take on that, but I'd like to hear yours. What do you think about parental involvement in an individual child's education? I mean, I think it's about most important. I mean, like I said as a Christian and a minister, I mean, we go back to the word of God that talks about our children. They're inheritance. They're heritage. You know, it's our job to train them up. It's our job to teach them. And we as parents, you know, really have forgotten that. Kind of what this has done is brought things back into the light and it's actually been a good thing because this brought parents back into the lives of their children, realizing what their children were learning or should I say not learning, especially in Newport News public school systems. And so education has always been a parental right. It's the job of the parent to educate. Unfortunately, many, many parents, some because they want to others because of necessity with two income households or single parents. You know, have given the public school the complete rights to raise their children. And now they're seeing the products of that for some who are older and they're seeing what's happening even in kindergartens now and things are being taught. And it's open a lot of parents eyes and a lot of parents are getting back to the truth that, you know, these are my children. It's my responsibility, too, to ensure that they are learning what they're supposed to be learning. I think the COVID-19 environment sort of instigated a little bit of that too over the last year. Parents have had to try to figure out using technology, how to get their kids educated, and some parents, maybe you didn't have the luxury of what you and I are communicating on right now..

"Welcome aboard. It is episode 96 of the JR have show. It's election season. And so it's very important that we talk to the people who are running for office. All 100 seats to the House of delegates are up for election. And in this era of sound bites, it's so hard to really get and have a good conversation with someone who's running for the House. I mean, you might be able to go to a dinner or something and have a chance to talk to them for 5 minutes or so. But we're really lucky today to sit and have an honest, long half hour conversation with an individual who's running for the House and delegates. Russ Harper in the 94th district in Newport News is challenging democratic incumbent Shelley simons for this seat. And he really goes into the issues that are facing Virginia today. The things that they're concerned about, things like education and school choice, right to life, constitutional freedoms.

Why States Are Sending Transgender Athletes to the Sidelines

"Katie barnes can you tell me a little bit about becky pepper jackson. Becky is an eleven year old girl. Who loves to run with her family. Favorite sport cross country. And the reason why i love it so much is because my whole family have always done it most nights especially in the summer they go out and run a mile together in through the rolling hills of the west virginia countryside. You remember the first time you ever ran for a long time Running with my mom when she was on the stroller. When i was in the stroller now troy and becky's just like every other kid except she's transgender heading into sixth grades. The first time she'd be able to run cross country for her school. She really wanted to join the team. But west virginia passed a law. That would have made it impossible for her to do so. A bill moving through the west virginia house would place new restrictions on transgender student. Athletes kabila supporters believe transgender athletes. Have an unfair advantage over non transgender athletes and so her mom and becky sued in order to get the right for her to run cross country with her peers. This is all stemming from a transgender student here in harrison county that wanted to run on her middle school cross country team. The american civil liberties union filed a lawsuit on her behalf. Mbeki's the only young transgender person who is faced with this issue. It's a sippy is poised to ban transgender athletes from competing in women's sports in schools and universities florida. Girls are gonna play girls sports in boys. You're going to play voice sports. That's what we're doing at least twenty four states at least twenty five states at least twenty-six states have now introduced similar. Bill's over sixty bills targeting trans youth. Specifically

Key arrests from the Washington, DC riot so far

"He's got the latest today. Michael Welcome back to the show. Thank you so much for having me mark. We're seeing dozens that have been charged already. In the days since a mob of Trump supporters storm the U. S Capitol and disrupted the certification of the 2020 presidential election results Now to be clear some of those folks that were there that broke into the capital Did themselves harm like they were wearing their badges for the place that they're employed by and once their employers found out about it, they fired those folks. But the Justice Department officials are also saying they've been able to with the help of the American people. Nab some of the people that are responsible for breaking in. In fact, three of the highest profile accused rioters from last week siege have been arrested in charge like Jake of Anthony. Chance, Lee, You probably don't know the name or the AK. He goes by Jake and jelly. This is the guy who they were calling on some level. The guy who made the list that had makeup and horns and of some form of for blanket on him or something. They're saying he's the Cuban on shaman. That's what he calls himself and as the Cuban on shaman he has been arrested for breaking into the capital, in fact, technically turned himself into the FBI on their office on Thursday after the whole riots went down on Wednesday afternoon. So he turned himself in. He is now facing charges. The guy who's responsible for carrying around Nancy Pelosi's lectern in the capital has been arrested in his facing charges. Adam Christian Johnson eyes also gonna be facing charges here and Richard Barnett. That name may not sound familiar, but you've seen his boots. He was the guy who was sitting in Nancy Pelosi's desk with his feet up on her desk are allegedly stole a piece of mail from her desk to prove that it was him. That was there. He was arrested on Friday in Arkansas and is scheduled to appear in federal court tomorrow and will ultimately be extradited to Washington, D. C and they're not the only ones. I mean, you've got Derrick Evans, who I don't necessarily think this was a smart move but videoed himself breaking into the capital, saying we're in. We're in Derrick Evans is in. So he referred to himself in third person posted it all on his social media posts, and here's the problem. He was a lawmaker in West Virginia's house of delegates. So when he did that, and was brought up on charges federal charges for breaking in, he had to resign from West Virginia's house of delegates on Saturday for doing that, and then, Lastly, Lonnie Kaufman, I don't know how much we're gonna hear about this because He's the guy that 70 year old from Alabama who allegedly brought guns and 11 Mason jar Molotov cocktails to the perp protest in his pickup truck. Now, from what we're hearing, none of those were used, but they were dangerously close. The vehicle is parked dangerously close to the capital. So what kind of charges will be brought for him? We're not sure. But we do remember how shocking it was that there was a truck that was found with Molotov cocktails and weapons so There will be some element of charges there. And that's just the starting point now Mark because we've got 17 cases, according to federal prosecutors that will be making their way into federal District Court with names attached to them, alleging serious high penalty crimes like violent entry and assaulting federal officers. Then you've got another 40 cases in the District of Columbia Superior Court on lesser charges like Curfew violations and non violent gun crimes that are also going to go through and this is just the starting point. They believe there's going to be more to come. The Cuban on Shaymen should face

Commissioner Brendan Carter is here to talk about big tech censorship and 8 15 Karen Worse stirs here. Executive director for Reed's across America more on that in just a moment. I'm Vince colonies with Mary Walter. Good morning to you joining us now to talk about that vent. Ryan Mannion. She's the author of the Knock at the Door. Three Gold Star Families Minded by grief and purpose, Ryan. Thank you for joining us. That you're the president of the Travis Manion Foundation. Travis, your brother is buried in Arlington National Cemetery. So I would assume that something like the Reese across America, Reese across America has so much meaning for your family. So what was your reaction when you heard that it was being canceled because of Cove. It Well, we were shocked. I heard about it. Not last night, but the night before through social media, And you know, through the tribal commanding foundation. We work with thousands of gold star families and you know they were there. Their messages were blowing up and we were just really surprised. I couldn't believe that this decision. Honestly had been made. I was very vocal and saying, Listen, I understand the need for being safe following guidelines making sure that we're being safe or socially distancing, but The idea that we couldn't figure this out. And there wasn't even a thought to say. Hey, how can we make this work? I think that was what was most upsetting to may. So what was going on behind the scenes after you found out that reads across America had been canceled for this reason. Do you know families who were trying to get this reverse that we certainly were bringing it up yesterday morning. I know there's some conversation about this. What were you hearing from? Gold Star families? Absolutely. I mean, I I will say I am thrilled that the secretary of the Army reverse this decision. I don't think it came without incredible pressure. Um, I know on my hand I worked tirelessly for You know, 24 hours with other gold star families and other supporters. We had a congressional letter going that was being put together with bipartisan support to overturn the ruling Gold Star. Family members were just in engaging the secretary of the Army Arlington National Cemetery. So it was a big campaign to make sure that The voices were heard of families of the fallen and they understood. Don't think I can explain how meaningful is to know and I participate almost every year in it, but to know that someone's walking up to my brother's grave, placing a wreath there. Looking at his name and speaking his name. There's something so powerful about that, especially during the holiday season, and the fact that that was being ripped away from all these families was just devastating to Mae. It's interesting. You mentioned your foundation, The Travis Manion Foundation. I want to ask about that. But it was something you said you said that you vowed to lay every wreath yourself if you have to do this year. And I think what would have happened and I think that the military saw this coming was that people were going to show up and because we're allowed to lay your own wreaths at graves if you wanted to. So so this side, this edict of you can't do it through an organization made no sense at all. But I think they kind of saw the writing on the wall that people were going to show up in droves to write what they saw as a wrong so they might as well have had it organized Absolutely, you know, they basically what they were saying was that if you held the family passes, your loved one was buried there. You could come on to the cemetery and have your room read flowers, whatever. And you know, and I'm thinking in my head. Okay, well, for those who can't be there, I'm gonna figure it out. I'll put reached in my car and I'll drive back and forth until it's all done and and I think again that was overwhelming sentiment. Of all of these families. So at the end of the day, no matter what, Reese across America was going to take place in some form or fashion. I should get recognized. I'm interested to see what that fashion isn't what we will be talking this'll morning more with the executive director at 8 15 across America, But what what I'm wondering about is normally they have thousands of people do this, I imagine The flurry of attention that this program just received may result in many more volunteers. I'm hoping actually deciding that they'd like to be a part of it. I do worry, though, that they may restrict this down T narrow a group of people even know it's still going on. So I'm still I still remain concerned at this hour that there may they may not be as open as we like them to be on that much acreage at Arlington National Cemetery. Right. You know, one of the things we talked through, and I emailed back and forth with Karen last night and said, Listen, Travis Manning Foundation is here. Whatever you need, however, we can support and what this looks like for this year. What my first thought was. This typically takes place on one day. It's one day were thousands of people converged. We've got five weeks until Christmas. So we have Essentially 45 days, we could break up in shifts and have a few 100. People come every day for the next 45 days. I mean, there are ways that you can do this that it gets done and that everybody that wants to participate can participate. It just takes a little creative thinking, and that was my That was my whole thing. Listen, my brother and the men and women that lie at Arlington National Cemetery. They didn't take the easy way out in anything that they did..

Washington, DC - Virginia House approves sweeping package of police reforms

"Virginia's House of delegates has now approved a sweeping package of police reform bills. Democrats say they'll make it easier to rein in officers who abuse their authority. But Republicans say they'll hamstring police and make their jobs more dangerous. The legislation includes bands on the use of choke holds and no knock search warrants requirements for police officers to intervene to stop the use of excessive force by another officer and expanded grounds for decertifying officers. The special legislative session, which began last month, was called by Governor Ralph Northam to address the economic impacts of the pandemic and to consider proposed police and criminal justice reforms.

"That would have made it easier to sue police officers who abuse their authority. Has been voted down in Virginia, Ending qualified immunity for the police is one of the main police reform proposals getting attention nationwide. But it appears it won't pass during Virginia Special legislative session after a House committee voted it down. A Senate committee did the same thing. Last week, Delegate J. Jones supported it. This is an important measure to provide citizens their day in court. I think we can all agree that if one of our family members or friends with ourselves in that position you your day in court as well. The measure would effectively make it easier to sue police because qualified immunity often shields officers from misconduct Lawsuits. Neck

The thing is myself Mark Wes. US will and to a lesser extent. Commenter are all habitual criminals threat. We began a series of crimes while living in Virginia that began approximately nineteen ninety eight for some US and continued until two thousand eight when we moved to Texas suffice to say our behavior during that period was not in line with our state's name sick Shameful why we removed really yes. He says the beginning of our state of Virginia. The act of fornication also known as boning before marriage has been considered a class four misdemeanor punishable by a fine of up the two hundred fifty dollars per occurrence and hope it makes a little bit more sense now. Why we've kept our crimes from you guys because if the state find out I could as much as seven hundred fifty dollars in which we all know that I don't have? Yeah here's my allowance. But what is what is oral sex. Count as that's bad much. Actual Virginia Virginia was not a big fan of sodomy. Wait eighteen so I didn't have a ton of actual sex in Virginia.

Amanda Litman, Executive Director of "Run For Something" discusses the importance of down ballot races

"The Mandolin. Welcome to the PODCAST. I am so glad to be here. Thanks for having me so I read something really interesting last night I was reading through twitter. Of course only at night. That's what I do and there's a thread pincher twitter feed that caught my interest. You said something to the effect that you were talking talking to people and people have said to you about this year's upcoming election. They're just kind of focused. Their resources are energy and their time on trump and getting trump out of office. A what's what's wrong with that view view. Well I think it's It's it's wrong. I think it misses the bigger picture of what's at stake this year. Beating trump is important at. It's it's obviously a high priority it. We can't dismiss the importance of winning the White House both on a policy level and on a save American democracy level and it's not enough It can't be our priority as Democrats to the at the expense of everything else and what I've been hearing especially from donors this year not as much from volunteers which is great but especially from donors this year is that their money their efforts their energy is going towards things that stop trump. Yeah and that means that there are huge swaths of this ecosystem of this work being done that are under funded and under resourced and aren't going to be done in the way that they need to at a time when we have a chance to make huge progress especially on state and local government awry in. You know you're not the first person who runs an ORG that I've heard that from right that going into the general election. I think this happens a lot. You know every four years people start focusing especially early donors their their resources into the general election and that just kind of misses the point really important point so I just want to point something out about the power of down ballot races this so was it day before yesterday the Equal Rights Amendment was ratified in Virginia. And I think one of your alums run for something along. Jennifer carrol. foy Is a delegate in Virginia that she was a part of that process. Not just a part of it John was leading the charge on this and she is. I think she's incredible. We've been working with Jensen's she. I ran twenty seventeen I think people forget about her first election. You know it was twenty seventeen Virginia House of delegates. It was the first first big race after twenty. Sixteen she was running in a primary against a candidate who had run before and people wrote her off. They didn't think she could win. She was a black woman running in northern Virginia They didn't feel like it was possible for someone like her to take office. Not only did she win. She won her primary by fourteen votes like week or two after having given birth premature twins. Wow she is hard core. And you'll we were with her during that primary and then into the general when she flipped flip to see in the Virginia House of delegates. Red To blue She helped pass Medicaid expansion in Virginia in two thousand eighteen to ensure that more kids had healthcare just like her baby's I did and then when we met with her a little bit later after twenty eighteen. I guess she was like I want to take on the way and we said great. Let's do it so so. She did a bus tour across the state. She's been working really hard to ensure that there are the votes for it. She campaigned really hard to make sure that the Democrats are able to flip the Virginia House in Twenty nineteen gene and then she was the lead sponsor of the bill just earlier this week. Making Virginia the final state to actually finally ratified the equal rights amendment. It's so amazing. See not what is possible when you elect a Democrats that's amazing. I actually didn't know the depth of her story. That is amazing because I just did an episode on the IRA that was was a century in the making and the fact that run for something was behind a candidate who did all of that. I think that's amazing. In that in itself is a commercial for why we need to focus on these races. It's really remarkable. What happens when you elect the Democrats to offices where they can actually make a difference? You know one of the things. I find so fascinating as people. Tell me you know. My biggest goal is insert issue here. That's why I'm putting all my efforts towards winning the White House towards a House district like do you not see where the power comes from if basically every issue you care about the true levers of power happen in state and local government so whether its reproductive health or criminal L. Justice reform or voting rights or climate change or lgbt equality. Really any issue pretty much makes progress or gets defended at the state and local level. So another one of your alumni isn't a Tamie Sawyer in Memphis. I'm actually from Memphis. I grew up there so I interviewed her a few times. She's another powerhouse. I loved loved him. You saw her. She's in the city council. Right now ran for mayor another person who is going to make a big big changes in local politics in Memphis. Yes yeah. She's amazing we were so proud to be a part of her campaign and I know even though she lost that race. She's not done so I'm excited to see what she does next. Yeah so the thing is. Is that one party already. Does understand this. And that's the Republican Party. They understood this for over a decade that the power lies in these local races. They do focus on the Journal election. Obviously the White House in in governorships and stuff like that but they don't think that any rates is too small like from the school board to election. Birlik you've mentioned. Do you think that Democrats are finally catching up into between to that to that strategy. I getting closer. I think the deals you see is doing amazing work. I think the National Democratic Redistricting Committee is an incredible partner And I think it's not enough and I think it's not local enough even with all the work being done on state legislative races the best example. I've got here. Do you remember that New York Times article. I think it was maybe earlier or this week or last week. Time is a flat circle. That was talking about the textbooks in Texas. I California right right and was explaining. How like in California? It's sort of a broad ed more nuanced look at history versus Texas textbooks which are very dismissive of African American history in the United States and have Berries Pacific viewpoint around the second amendment. Things like that. The one thing. That article didn't get into that I think is worth pointing out is that that is an outcome. That is an intentional goal of the Republican Party. The the Republican Party invested millions winning the Texas State Board of Education which helped dictates that curriculum. In fact in some points in the process the Texas the State Board of EDUCATION GETS LAKE LINE ITEM veto power over these textbooks That's why Republicans controlled it. That's why Republicans spent money and invested did efforts to win it and what that does is teach Texas teenagers. If specific viewpoint of history breeding them to be more conservative voters It is both with a short term and long term impact of this work there. Republicans have understood. They have figured it to fuck out and important is because they see the longer picture and I hate to complement the Republican Looking Party. It's a bad party. Lease the elected officials in it are bad for the most part but their donors figured it out. They figured out early. They've been doing this for decades twenty thirty forty years So we have a lot to do to make up for that loss. Time am and there aren't too many groups who do the work locally the way that we do. I wish there were more so yeah no. You're absolutely right. You're as I was thinking the exact same thing that you just said that they are thinking about generations ahead. Children are reading these text books. They know exactly only whether it is intentional. Strategic it is long-term thinking it is understanding that the crazy person you elect to a city council today could be the crazy person a letter into a member of Congress tomorrow but that they've been crazy member of city council sort of gives them credentials. It's a breeding ground. So it's not just now policy policy. It's not just politics. It's the entire cultural impact in echo chamber that they have created to give themselves sustainable power and ultimately that's what run for something is all about is building being sustainable power for Democrats progressives because if we don't win these grass roots offices these local school boards water boards and community college boards. The rest of it falls house apart because it's not on a solid foundation. So let's talk about money where the money goes because this is another thing. They figured out that we have it. And I'm Kinda pissed about this one. So the coke brothers right. They've poured millions and millions into these down Belarus's right no racist too small for them. You know they'll put lots of money into a school board. If it means something but Democrats on the other hand you can and tell me. Maybe I'm wrong about this. Maybe this criticisms wrong. But you know we've got billionaires running in the primary running what appear to be vanity campaigns spending hundreds of millions of dollars Ads when if they were reinvest that in down ballot races. Maybe we get somewhere yeah. I've no disagreement here You know I hey. I have a very strong belief that if you are a billionaire or a KNOB billionaire it is your money to do with what you wish. If you think that's the best way to achieve your goals as running for president let go forth respectfully disagree. I don't think it's a good way to achieve your goal but I do think it's a symbol of how the Democratic Party has has sort of idolized allies. The presidency is the solution to our problems. You know that we have to billionaires running for president and not enough of them funding local offices like could you ask for a better metaphor it just. It drives me

How You Talk to People Matters: Marketing Segmentation and Personalization with Brennan Dunn of RightMessage

"Just today I have the distinct privilege of chatting with brandon the founder founder of right message and the creator of several courses. We'll we'll dive into that a little bit. W Freelancing Masse convert kit both of which I have taken in the past i. I'm really excited to talk to Brennan today. Because not only is he building. This amazing company called right message which I believe holds the keys to some some of the future of how content marketing will work for the copy blogger world and the world at large actually on top of it Brennan's in my opinion a certified genius that he's really smart one of the smartest guys I know and I always appreciate when I get a chance to talk to him so Brennan. Welcome to the show today. Well Daryl thank you for that. I wouldn't go as far as genius but I do. I do Gig out on the stuff which which is all about is to ask you what it feels like to be the smartest guy in the room. Because I feel like most most of the time. You're the smartest guy in the room they sit in. I've I've sat under under teachings and workshops that you've done in the past the four and I'm always amazed at the dedication. You have to the work that you do and the dedication location to understanding how we can communicate with people in different ways so before we dive into the right message and personalization segmentation which. I'm really really excited to do On a little bit of a tactical level tell me a little bit by the background and how you got to this point because I think it's really easy for a lot of people in the copy blogger audience to identify with where you've been how you got here and why this is important to you all right so I'm going to go fifteen years back in time. My so I was. I was just getting out of college and the very first kind of entrepreneurial thing that I did was I started a real estate lead Gen company with a friend of mine and what we did was we bought adspend on Google ad words back when you could actually afford stuff for like refinancing first time homebuyer and stuff like that so we ran these big big ad campaigns for our clients and what we did was we had a bunch of small clients. That would be buying leads from US individually so they were sick of the lending tree kind of shared lead model. They wanted exclusive brandon delete so people who saw their company names to other photo and stuff and what we did is we just ran these nationwide campaigns and then I would personalise landing page dynamically using a bunch of really crappy. PHP to show this person's photo their company logo stuff about like. Hey Refinance your Norfolk Virginia. House or whatever and that was kind of my first venture if you will into you customization or persons ation so basically somebody from a qualified area shows up on this one landing page in what changed in real time based on and you know the the person we matched them up with so that was kind of the. In retrospect that's where it all started but from there the mortgage bubble burst so it was out of that company and you know the later to thousands and then I started an agency doing just web APP development for people. My background is software are so we built web APPs and websites and stuff for people and then in twenty eleven. I started my first software. Company called plan scope which was a project management commit tool for freelancers. Did that realize very quickly. It's very hard to sell software online so I explore the whole content onto marketing thing and realized few people were searching for like freelance project management software but a lot of people are typing into Google. How do I get clients or how to raise raise my rates or had our raider proposal so just shared everything? I learned during the agency stuff for the plants. Go plug thinking. People read these articles from Google. And then Senate preplanned scope that Kinda SORTA worked but it really did turn in mostly into building a great email us to people so I quickly realized that a lot of people wanted more content and unless software. So I started doing courses on freelancing and that became w freelancing which we've done conferences around the world. We've done you know podcast. Fifty thousand plus plus listed the moment and that's kind of where I got started seriously with segmentation and personalization so I realized you know designers have different needs than developers even though they kind of all need clients they only to rape proposals. They Wanna see people like them. They want to see how people like them. Have benefited from you. Know certain courses or whatever else so heavily invested time Into building out a lot of custom code to personalize w freelancing depending on what sage businesses that have already bought our yard and our email list of. So don't show up Forbes Forbes instead show the thing you have yet things like that so that was kind of the origin story if you will of what became right message which was basically a reaction to people saying. Hey the thing you're doing is pretty cool but I'm a marketer. I'm not a coder. I want it but I don't WanNa Hire Kotor. Can you help so about about two years ago. Now I partnered with my friend. Shy started this company. And that's what we've been doing ever since all right. So I think it'd be important to define a couple of things here personalization personalization segmentation. Because I think that the wide ranging a wide ranging scope of what that means specifically because you could say yep I you know. I'm going to turn this podcast broadcast off. I know all about segmentation personalization. I do tagging in convert kit or I do tagging in my email service provider. Tell me a little bit like define that a little a bit and what exactly you mean by personalization and segmentation okay. So what. I want to talk about personal physician. I do not mean putting somebody's first name at any male. I think a lot of people think that that's what they're doing by personalizing their emails. They're saying you know. Hey Darryl at the beginning of an email Likewise I think a lot of people are I know. I don't think because I've done a lot of deep serving. Having a lot of people are very most people are doing segmentation around what people have bought so your customer. You bought this. You bought that but beyond beyond that in terms of who somebody actually is how they identify and what it is they need from you. Few are doing anything around that I mean some are with link sugars and stuff like that but for the most part people are doing as much as they should with being able to say. I have stuff to offer and I have people who need this stuff and if I can find out a bit about who they are in what they're looking for. I can better position what I've got to make more sense to them. So that's all personalization is in a nutshell we've been doing it since the dawn of civilization with whether we're trying to convince somebody to marry us or sell somebody something we kind. I'm naturally read between the lines and figure out all right. So how's Daryl acting what I know about him. What if any background and photo I have? And how can I better explain what I've got to make more sense to to I'm speaking. So that's all personalization is and when we talk about it on an online context. It's basically we saying. How do we get away from static one-size-fits-all emails and sales pages and kind of do that? Same thing we would do a one on one with somebody but owed Fighting that kind of middle ground between one-size-fits-all and highly personal highly relevant messaging. I guess
