"This ability you have to communicate with animals. Sounds extraordinary. The picture of the bear in your waiting room in the office is so interesting because I've seen a another shot of you. Right hugging the bear right next to bear hugging here and the bears head is almost larger than your entire body. And you do this thing with a marshmallow with the bear. What what tell me what what you do. I prefer marsh now on my mouth and the bear takes it out between my lips and tastes it are they. I can't explain it all. And they they they just read your luck a book and they know they spot fear if they if they sense fair then you you have to be very careful but if they sense there's no fear there then it just sit back like you and I are doing and we just have a little go out. Did you develop a way to deal with animals? Or do you think you'll always had. Oh I think in the womb. I had my folks love Al's deeply. Just Kinda my life. Somebody told me that you were at a zoo. And they said don't be don't be were. Don't be offended the animals. This animal never comes out. I think it was a giraffe. Oh it was. It was in DA at Columbus Zoo. Big Huge territory for this giraffe and he was an farthest corner. Wahab way way back there and he said don't he he won't come over even for food. Evil come over. Don't do well. I can't help but I have to talk to the animals so I should come on. Come on sweetie come on over come over. And he just looked Kamala. He came from that corner all the way across and put his head over the fence and let me pet. I was just mind boggled. I want to get back in there with I. Stay with you. What are you supposed is? How do you do it? I I think they sense a lack of fear my primary thing but also tremendous love German. I love animals more than most of the thoughtless over exception of a couple. That's another story. You're good relator to people as well. Have you learned anything about relating to animals that you apply to relating to people? Do you think I mean with the hub? Realize if you meet somebody for the first time like I've been the whole time we've been sitting here this nice engineer. I've been hitting on him while I'm talking just that same basic joke. About how many times do you get with a class? I see it coming.

Post terms and conditions apply. This is clear embiid and now back to my conversation with Tom. Hanks Alright listen to this. Oh that's That's the typewriter APP. That's hanks writer produced an Abbey. Yeah that does typing thing and as you type you hear the sound of ood seductive about the sound of the typing. Thank you thanks writer. That's available on the on the APP store. Ha W rit. I knowing that so many people can pose on a laptop opera It really a a pattern iphone. What's missing there is the per customer service the sound? It's not tap tap tap so you have. I think there's a choice now at five or six typewriters each one a different typeface as though you have a collection of six typewriters you can you type with all ten fingers. Oh yeah yes like without looking. Oh Yeah it's it's sometimes you have to make sure not looking at it so it comes out you know of course if you if you're not above the home keys then you're then you're screwed. Do you remember taking typing class? I never took it. I wish I did. I written all my life with two fingers. Oh that's the worst way to type that there is a number one. It's slow down your estimation. Yeah Sorry Kid. Can we wrap this up? I need to go major. Have to look at the keys as you're doing it and you're going back and forth between what you're typing when you can touch type Which I learned how to do in high school to music to records to make you go more rhythmic. Yeah Because you weren't you only supposed to look at the the the paper not the keys. Ed The records got faster and faster every week. Oh that music would say okay and ready. Dent bump bump bump bump on a space S S S space D D D Spy. You know I'm beginning to understand why I never took that drive you nuts but you in it for five or six weeks and next thing you know you haven't done that and go a. w. k. 's space W K space l. m. e. space. You had to go like the problem is when they put on a Spike Jones record. Then then you got like an acid trip you know. It was like gibberish down with. This is so interesting I mean you. You must have some. When people collect things they get an intimate relationship with the things they collect. Now for instance when you if people have a collection of Stradivarius violins have to play them. Every once in a while to keep them in shape you have to type. When you do what happens with you. I have some typewriters. That are simply objects of art. They sit on a shelf and they're never use but the vast majority of my collection are working manual. Typewriters that I rotate into use so that they all get They all get used in the course of course special typewriters on nothing special about first edition kind of thing my got. I think the most valuable typewriter I have is an oddly enough and IBM selectric. That Leo DiCaprio used in the movie. Catch me if you and it's funny. I went I went to the I went to the prop master after we were done shooting the scene and I said I will give you twenty five dollars for that. Ibm selectric they said. Okay and he took twenty five dollars. We said you know you gotTa have it for free. I'M GONNA give this guy But it's not about who who typed. I have one typewriter. I think that was owned by Mickey Spelane. I can't prove that he wrote anything on it. But I there's a providence says Maki spelane on the typewriter but mama typewriters worth about sixty bucks you know tops and if I sign them they're worth about sixty two bucks tops fascinating obsession to me when you talk about the keys getting into the texture of the paper. There's something about that. That's not mechanical. There's a there's a human element to these machines that I think you see now. Think faster on a typewriter than I did with a pen in my hand or even on even on my lap. That's interesting you're nervous is on the keyboard helping you. I'd rather get going and stick with it then pause and go back and edit and delete. I show you saying in an interview villas movie. That's coming out now that I'm so interested in seeing I haven't had a chance to see it yet. Mister Rogers Beautiful Day in the neighborhood right so I show you say. Is this true that you felt you learn to listen. Better playing Fred Rogers Mariella. Who is the director? Yeah wonderful direct. He's the boss. We were talking about this very thing about Fred's the great power he had and also a defense mechanism to was to listen and not talk. Let the other person let who? You're talking to reveal themselves in the silence as well as from a single question because they have a tendency like for example for kids to meet a kid for the person and say how. How old are you? Do you go to school with Great Hugh in? What's your favorite subject? Do you have a lot of friends at school? Do you like baseball. We don't even give them a chance to answer the question. We just ask them and and Fred particularly with children would. He did this thing and it's kind like he wouldn't even ask them a question he would say.

"When I I read your writing I wish prize at how much I admired it because I didn't know of you as a writer and the new book of short stories is amazingly good. Oh you read that. Thanks my God. It's so good. The usual you used language to get inside my head and surprise me and keep me amused and interested to get me deeper into the people and you don't use language to show off which I really admire. You could be poetic if you wanted to. But you you you're more plainspoken and and I really loved that. That's the stuff that I just naturally ended up gravitating to you know. I remember We were asked to buy books at a quote Unquote Book Fair and I looked at these titles that they had on car table after card table in high school or junior high school and I had never heard of any of these books. There were by writers. Never heard of the head titles. I'd never heard it and I finally said what is this. A scam you guys. Who Know We'd like we'd like to read we promote reading and it turned out that these books were specifically written for high schoolers. Why you'd never heard so the stories were simplistic. They weren't very so instead. I read in cold blood by Truman capote. That's a book. I got and it scared the living daylights out of me and from from a very early age on I wanted to read about the way things actually worked. And perhaps the way things actually. That's exactly the way I approach to reading. As a kid I was eleven years old and a friend of the family said to. Do you like to read and I said Yeah I really enjoyed you. Know what are you what did you would it be read lately? I said I just read. What MAKES SAMMY RUN? All my law at eleven even read it now. She's she had this stunned look on her face and then she said well. Of course that's over your head and I thought no. It is not shows you how people really behave. It's not the granddaddy of them. All that experience. When somebody has read enough of a book there was a book that was going around and the first line used the word crap in it all that David Copperfield. Kinda crap and none of us had ever seen a book in our library. Dead anything remotely like a swear word and so all of a sudden everybody wants to know what was catcher in the Rye reading catcher in the Ryan at red to lead to nine stories and and also to to be empowered but to discover it yourself I would say that to discover it yourself with the help of a good librarian. Who realizes you're hanging around you might WanNa you might want to like be if they'd like if you if you enjoyed reading airport by Leah by Arthur Hailey you might enjoy reading Armageddon by Leon Yours and so off begins kind of like guide to think when you were young. Would I'd give up on thirty or forty pages if I wasn't really into it. I still have a tendency to I when I was young. I loved reading anything that seems like it came from real life because I really wanted to understand how things got the way they were so we had a living room. That had been decorated. I guess by somebody who bought books by the yard as opposed to the color. They were red leather bound. Haw But they happen to be the congressional record so I opened up a book and lay on the floor and read the congressional record from the. I guess it was from the nineteen forties. And I couldn't get over it. These people would say the distinguished member from Idaho and and they'd insult each other in the most elite classical terms and I thought well this is fascist like a play dialogue and I loved it. There was that there were those type of books that I pretend to have read for a long time. You know when I finally read Moby Dick. Oh I loved Moby Dick. I pretended to have read moby. Dick for an awful long time like that with the Russians off the Hijaz I read. I read worn piece. I pretend to have read Rascal Mikhalkov Book. I would always get up to the reverend's sermon in moby. Dick and I couldn't get this like goes on for seventy pages. I couldn't get past that I couldn't get pass it and I was out Was out with some some friends at whatnot and a friend of one of the guys to sit I'm reading moby Dick You could never read Moby Dick. No you can and he said if you could just get past that reverend servants really does take. Everybody had that I'd pass it. I understand why it's now one of the greatest books now. Here's the thing when I read book of Short Stories. I think you're one of your obsessions crept out without typewriters typewriter. Yeah I mean the the chapters begin with the picture of a different typewriter. What how did you develop this obsession with? How how do you? How many times? How many typewriters you have at home in at home? I'll probably have fifteen scattered about the house but down at the office. I have like a hundred and twenty or something like that. I rest my case. I WHAT IS THE GOTTA? I gotTA start getting rid of them because my kids have said. We're not going to bury you with these things that you'd better start getting them away There is a story that is in that collection that is literally how I got my first typewriter. A friend of mine was a year ahead of me in school and when he went off to college he gave me his high school typewriter. Which was a piece of junk? It was like a knockoff. Nineteen seventies version of a very very very cheaply made horribly constructed typewriter. You could type on and I had it for a couple of years when I was in a I was working in. Cleveland is an actor and I needed to get it fixed and clear was at the Great Lakes Shakespeare Festival I was at the Cleveland. Play or no legendarily. So at the Cleveland Play House. Yeah that was. The Cleveland. Play House was the bitter rival of the best and vice versa. Thing and it was falling apart and the carriage would slide. In when I returned it would not line up properly. There was all sorts of problems with it so I took it to this old German guide. Detroit Avenue Business Machines on the west side of Cleveland. And he was at a shop that was just jammed with every kind of like thousand key adding machines and what have you and he was also servicing by that time printers copy machines or whatnot and he said what can I do for your young man. I said I need to have this typewriter service so let me see the machine. It had leather at case and I opened it up and threw his hands up and says I will not touch this machine album not I will not touch it. He said well I said why is your job to repair business. He says yes. I re- I work on machines. Not On toys. And this is a toy. And he lectured me for the better part in twenty minutes. About what a true typewriter isn't I walked out of there with a Hermes two thousand typewriter that he gave me five dollars off For Trade and for my junk type or any told. I'm just going to throw this away said okay. Fine but that Hermes two thousand typewriter which that particular typewriter got lost over the course about ten years and ten moves as since been replaced by. Well you know one hundred nineteen machines how I understand the story leading to own. You're asking why Y- probing deeper Allen. I mean I understand owning a typewriter because the guy gets turned onto it. But how did you wind up with? You have an obsession with typewriter. I do how did you get that? You can change the world with a typewriter now. You can't change our world two of the pen and paper. If your handwriting is legible enough mine is not. There is something about the order that a a good typewriter puts the words in the the. The margins are equal typefaces crisp. You can make mistakes but go back over it and what you come out of at. The end of a piece of paper is as unique. A creation as any oil painting watercolor photograph negative. Did you write your your book of Short Stories? On a typewriter I began. I wrote about first five pages of one draft of the story on a typewriter because I didn't have my laptop with me at the tunnel. It'd be mad. Dissed in order to do it on a typer but I type every day. I sent a letter to somebody. Leave a memo. Put out notes. I I I send a lot of letters on typewriters because there is something about the purity of the words in your head and the sound of the percussion of the of the keys hitting the paper. And I can't go back enough again to say the uniqueness of let me tell you story I was at nor ephrons house. We were good friends. We work together and nor was one of the Great. Inspirations and She had up on the wall of just in the in the hallway. She had a letter and I leaned in. It was a framed letter so did not get a letter from the letterhead was No Coward and it was a typewritten letter from a Goldeneye his place down in Down Jamaica Right. His his his winter home in Jamaica and it said An all it was whereas a letter to somebody thanking them for a very witty lunch. A lovely a lovely afternoon at their house and there was a little kind of joke at it was obviously shared between Dole cowered in the end a hostess and it was assigned Knoll and I looked at that and I thought no coward type that at his house in Jamaica named Golden Eye. And now it's sixty years later it's hanging on a friend of mine's wall. Nobody throws away a typewritten. So type or a typewritten letter kind of has its own signature and you can picture that person's hands hitting the keys is at the end the force of your finger on the keys impacts the depth of. Here's here's the thing when you type with a typewriter. You are not applying ink onto paper. You're stamping into the fiber of the papers. If I always type out dear Alan alda which by the way I will send you a letter. I can't wait that those are the. Da Our space a. l. a. and Space A. L. A. Space are not on the surface of the paper. They are inside the fabric of the paper and that alone to me. It turns it into a form of a graphic art. It's not just an never mind. What idea might be communicated in their physically if you put it in a drawer? It'll last two thousand years..

"I'm older and this is clear and vivid conversations about connecting and communicating if it's possible to turn compassion into a muddy economic commodity. But if you can make a movie about compassionate understanding and have it be so glamorous because it's a movie that you paid to see that you want to emulate what that is low then there you actually have created a purpose for a movie beyond the Holding up the mirror to to human nature. I I met Tom. Hanks on a plane decades ago and I ran into him a couple of times at award shows and we even made a picture together bridge of spies. But I never really got to know Tom until he came into our studio in Manhattan and we talked about some of his eclectic interests like finding meaning in pop entertainment communicating with children. And of course typewriters. I said he was elected right. Come on in and enjoy the ECLECTIC world of Tom. Hanks it's it's a really Nice Day in the neighborhood Tom. This is so great. Did you read here target? I'm Kinda I'm Kinda pinching myself when you did You did a TV movie. This was long before the green show. you did a TV movie. Who's called the Glasshouse yes It was shot in prison right. I'm still haunted by the final image in which you're the innocent man and you come. There's mayhem that's going on and you are shot dead On the other side of the wrongly chosen door and it was a long shot of just you hunched over with all the backstory behind it. Now that's the thing that you're in. What a date myself. But I say I'm in junior college or high school and I'm watching on. Tv AND TV movies. Were not supposed to be that. Poignant in those days you had the occasional Bryan Song you played Carol chessmen the Us More about mine and I'm not suspending your IMDB. I'm just going on pure pure memory. And I I remember. I was always on the lookout for For something other than the standard fare of television. Because I'm from the generation that knew what time it was by. What was on you know and love of life was over time for you? Go to school and the every now and again. There was one that ninety minute. Television movie came out. There was kind of an art form to it and and Steven Spielberg may dual. That was the move came out during that time there was Bryan Song. Of course that was about With James Caan says as a Brian Picolo football all the guys at school or talked about the next day but the Glass House and a few other few things would come along and I just thought well that's not that's not like an episode of Mannix. That's not like that's not like the high chaparral. This is something. What do you think it is? What how and you made a career doing this of doing stories that appeal to a popular audience. WanNa be entertained and yet had meaning have a layer of meaning the trick to it would so how you go about well. I've been lucky to be able to do that many times to you. Well you kind of like in a lot of ways. You set the standard for like. I don't know well the green show you would do because I know you started writing them. You started directing them as well came one of the you became one of the powerbrokers there on the green show. Of course we're talk about 'em apostrophe a green. I heard that somebody on the show called the green show work and had to put on those olive drab uniform. Nobody ever mentioned that to me. Maybe it was like ever but And you do things like set set. Set a half hour in real time. What happened in that? Was this show. A road was with the Doctor. Who was our adviser and then there was one from the perspective of the patient who couldn't talk because he had a tracheotomy and all the whole thing was from his Hispanic. Yes you guys really loved it when we could tell the story in an unusual way. I remember and this this is Tom. Hang podcast. And I'm talking to Alan All. I remember the first couple of seasons of that. Show it would. There were times where they tried to have kooky episodes. Boxing matches what traditional things instead until writers got used to the idea that we wanted a little more substance they would give us standard servers comedies. Yeah wacky visitors from higher higher you know you play a trick. Gone visiting colonel or something like that and then you guy seemed like was I thought there was a palace coup here amongst everybody that you ended up doing us. A real substance particularly look look what the subject matter was the Korean War right. Well that that we wanted to make sure that I wanted to make sure before we did this. Show that we would not shrink from showing how how bad wargin be there. Was I think to you had the surreptitious comment on Vietnam at show that we did not have anywhere else in popular culture per prickly not on a on a network show? Korea was substituting for what we had just been through not that long before in less than ten years with Vietnam War ended so we had In Mash we had We had you doctors presenting a humanistic portrait of how mad the whole thing and some people say that we contributed to the end of the war. And I never thought so. But I've heard you say in an interview that you felt for instance Philadelphia did help the movement toward accepting AIDS as something. We needed to work on did you. Did I get that wrong to? Do you think it's possible to do I? I was answering a question at some point and it was it was what. What do you think you're going to accomplish with this movie? Philadelphia was a movie that cost X. Millions of dollars and needed to make that money back. Mitt had to compete in the marketplace. That's what I'm asking you how you go about well. The the my answer to that question was says. Look if it's possible to turn compassion into a muddy economic commodity but if you can make a movie about compassion understanding and have it be so glamorous because it's a movie that you paid to see that you want to emulate what that is well then there you actually have created a purpose for a movie beyond the Holding up the mirror to to human nature but boy there so many movies. That are the opposite of compassion. And that's fun you know. I grew up watching movies like the seven faces of Dr Lau and Jason and the ARGONAUTS and You Know Doris Day movies you know. Please don't eat the daisies and by and large. I was usually entertained by almost all movies. I remember seeing a movie called. I swayed the name of it was duel at. Diablo was a western Dennis. Weaver and I think Sidney Poitier in it and those were those. Were the movies that we were used to seeing this type of those type of commerce that even our parents had you know John Wayne Moves I remember going to see McClintock or Chisholm with my dad and my dad was receiving two hours of entertainment. Just like he had been receiving since he was not in the thirties and forties and fifties. It was the thing to do and spend your time then By by the time I became discerning viewer I was looking for something that I could recognize myself. I that where I could see. I've seen that. I feel like that guy. I've seen that in in my community or I've had those same sort of questions about what life is like and so a Not I would just say I ended up growing up watching movies about grownup people going through grownups things and that was what I ended up. I was always attracted to though the those particular kind of human elements of as opposed to. We gotta get these forty guns through Apache Pass..

"Make sure that as marketers were thinking through because technology can be fun and some of these. His parents can be exciting. Make sure you've got that use case really defined use case of what you're trying to solve for and that it's solving a problem for the customer not that you want to throw some technology at it right right right well if you were in front of a bunch of marketers which you will be when this airs. What should marketers be doing? Or considering when they're trying to understand how to improve their customer experience where would you tell them the starter or think about and I think customer experience is going to change much over the next ten years in. How at a if you if you dream about like Gosh you know when when when you're sick are going to be delivering your medicines and when you go to a grocery store you're going to gauge the human or a machine and you know the world's going to change a the ten year so that's equal parts exciting sometimes overwhelming and so when I talk about with with marketers is there's five things you can do to future proof yourself and future-proof the the business right now and that first one is focused on on customer experience him make sure they're you're you're on the customer data so the first thing I would advise mortars orders to do is really understand your analytic maturity and I say that as a as a marketer at SAS and we provide industry-leading analytics? I'm constantly looking at my. I my teams analytic maturity. Do we have all the data first party third party data that we need. Do we know her. Data is that we broken down those data silos and then is the team empowered and trained. I'm to be able to really gain insights from data and apply it so really look at Jane Olympic maturity. The second recommendation I would have is is start small and find some wins and really celebrate. Those wins wins because this is the road to customer experience success. It's a journey. Until you gotta find those those short-term wins and and talked about the Chapada example we actually ended up that started as a pilot. That's now business as usual and our CEO highlighted that on main stage at one of our flagship conferences just last month and so what celebration really got to enjoy that success us. The third thing I'd say is be a customer experience champion within your organization and I do believe that customer experience is a whole company sport but marketers have a really uniquely positioned to move this forward and so be that champion but really think through champion of the customer experience the Voice of the customer and and as a marketer you have access to that data And if your moral compasses pointed towards what's right for the customer you're in a good place right. The fourth thing I would say is. Bill does cross divisional bridges. You can't do this alone. You need to have those partners just just like with GDP are. I made better friends with the legal and it team but all of us in an organization needs to be working on customer experience so team up with sales with with I certainly once again legal finance hr every group has their own view of customer experience. And if you can go at it as a group you're going to be more successful and then the last thing I'd say a Cliche we talk about embracing change. I think you need to instigate change when it comes to customer experience because if you're not if you're not disrupting yourself you're not disrupting your company. Your customers will and so. They have a different expectation. And if you're not you're not changing to meet that. Then then they're going to choose to do business elsewhere. I Love I love the instigate gate changed. Not just driving. Make it happen Last question for you. What do you think the future customer experience looks like? I know we talked about ten. Years is hard to predict anything. So I'm asking you potentially the thing. This hardest thing to do but where do you think it's going to end up. I mentioned we did this. Research study with Daniel Newman of future research. And we did that because we wanted to charter our own course but also help our customers and so the research really came up with Some bold predictions along the way on topics like how wearables are going to be much more embedded into our our day to day. Even envisions a world. Where you can buy with your is is because of the way wearables can be so imagine how much that changes for for those of us on the retail marketing side? Right I think something. We really didn't talk about it. All was blockchain and the impact blockchain is going to have even more broadly. The research imagined a future where maybe we can end fake news. Because we've got blockchain looking at where does the source of data coming from so. I think that par or is is really fascinating. I do believe that we are going to see augmented reality. And virtual reality be much more part of our day to day lives and and we see that with our kids with folkman go right but but I think retailers are in front of this this trend. You think of Laurie Al.. WHO's got APPs to help you? Choose the right lipstick and that struggles real meaningful in Utah has something where you're able to see what the close look like on you. I Kee- can bring the store to your home. I think we as marketers need to find ways to help our customers experience experience our technology in a more immersive way a little bit.

"It is who makes it ultimately. Let me me by it right now. They won't let the by it and thereby buttons Google's going to have their buy buttons so I think that's the future of search. It'll be much much more intelligent but also more useful we're going we see more. No click results Google. But that's a good thing when you have a no quick results like what's the weather today three years ago. You want to know what the weather was you google. What's the weather Raleigh? And then you had to click into like CBS News and you had to click today only and then it would tell you after you wash the video. Now you Google just tells you so. I think we're going to see more and more of that because it's useful and then from from there you'll do more searches because that's ultimately what we want so future of search. They'll just be more waste search. I don't think we've always putting devices in our houses route for us to search not to. They're putting devices sir houses not because they just want to give us another way to play music they want us to do more searches so landscape. A search will change the way we're going to do search change and things will get from search will change. You may be able to say okay. Google what's What's the price of laundry detergent and Google? Say It's going to be at your door in two hours so ultimately I think that's where they wanna go. Well thank you for coming on the show. Today it's great to be here.
