All right. 844 542 42. There was an interesting column by Peter Funt. I guess he's the son of Alan Funt. He writes for The Wall Street Journal occasionally, and it says he's still the host of candid camera. I don't know where that's running, but he had a good one this week, which I think about sometimes, which is, you know, with all the choices we have, like we were just mentioning Amazon Prime and Netflix and whatever else And he he says that in 1961 Newton minnow became the chairman of the FCC Federal Communications Commission. He's the one who said TV was a vast wasteland. The three most watched television programs were Westerns, Wagon, Train Bonanza and Gunsmoke. Each week I both shows were seen by roughly one in three Americans. One in three Americans Wasteland or not. It was part of a sweeping shared experience. When I looked at Nielsen's top 10 list of the most viewed Syriza of 2020, I was surprised discovered that I'd only watch three and two of them were NFL football. Well, for me, it would be those two.

He noticed that when he put the it was on radio. He knows when he put the on air. He would get these soldiers to come in and interview them, and they'd be lively and Hilarious, and then the on air light would come on, and he would say okay now we're going to do the interview and they would clam up and become really uncomfortable, so he stopped using the on Air Light, which was the birth of candid camera.

Business and an expert in strategies to reduce unnecessary work and streamline processes her organization. You're going to want to dig into it. It's called white space at work. And she provides amazing consulting and training for organizations and individuals who want to improve workplace efficiency and create healthy rhythms for their workers. And a fun fact for those of you. That are old enough to remember the television. Show candid camera. Well she's the daughter of Alan funt. Who hosted the show Juliet? It's amazing to a chance to interview you today. Welcome to the show leadership podcast. Thank you so much fun to be here. Well aiming I loved our time with you we got to know each other. I guess there's been a couple years ago at the Global Leadership Summit and you're talk One of the high points of the summits in so thank you for your contribution. Thank you thank you. I'm sorry I wasn't there this year with you. Was it a blast? We missed you. This year really was we had A. We had a great time and We've got we've got to get you back again. Yes well twenty one if not before. That's when I'M SLADE. Well last year. What people may not know is that they invited you. How what what was it like? Two days before as a fill-in thirty six. I mean you wrote a new talk and and crushed it thanks. Let's do this. Let's start out and I'd like to hear a little bit about your personal journey. And how you conceived of the White Space Concept. Can you tell us how you came up with this idea? Yeah it had an interesting mixture of origins. There was a little business and a little personal spiritual saw kind of give you all three recipe ingredients and tell you how they kind of blended together so the business context was that I was coaching a lot of executives who are busy and overloaded during this time which was about twelve thirteen years ago when really the white space term was coined and we would constantly talk about literally the white spaces on their day runner or their planner at the time because it was the white the presence of that white that actually became a precursor to the most efficient effective in creative days in their week and so that was kind of recipe ingredient. Number one was literally looking for white. On People's calendars another ingredient was kind of a spiritual part of my life when I getting a little bit more involved in my Judaic roots which had been very very secular when I was a child and I was keeping up fairly observant where I started reading authors. Who were talking about Saturday? And the Sabbath has being this castle and time and it was this period of the week where there was this unscheduled open beautiful fluid time. That had no assignment and that experience that visceral experience of having the sabbath or the. Shabas BE OFF. Duty became the first visceral component of white space. And then everything kind of came together. When I became a mom and I had these three boys none of whom ever slept ever and so I would lay with my children every single night while he would fall asleep and I had this forced what I would later. Come to understand was white space time when I be trapped in a dark bedroom doing nothing but holding. Somebody's hand and waiting for them to fall asleep. And suddenly I noticed that unlike any other experience that I'd had that my brain was lit with creative ideas and business solutions and introspection and strategy and I would dash out of that room every night looking for a pencil because the forced experience of having open time had unlocked. Something in me that I hadn't experienced before and so these different elements started coming together to build the idea that there needed to be a missing ingredient. Reinserted back into work into life. Which was this white space time which we define as a strategic pause taken between activities so it is any moment of time that has no assignment that can then be utilized for strategy or creativity or recuperation or introspection or all of the thoughtful activities. That we don't have time to do because we're busy deleting away in our inbox or rushing from task to task. So I love the phrase strategic pause between activities and I am like very personally excited about this interview because I just recently. Juliet hired and started working with a performance psychologist to kind of increase by productivity. Because my responsibilities have been kind of increasing at a rapid pace even faster than Faster than my ability to grow into it. So interestingly enough one of the very first place he started was recognizing. I didn't have much recovery time and so instead of trying to cram more in he's actually trying to create more space. Where there's where. I'm not doing things that will help me to be more productive. So sounds like you're part of it absolutely and any physical analogy probably plays well with you but any Olympia knows. The critical element of recovery is part of training or muscular building or improving skills in any sport and so they build in recovery time. But we don't tend to do that in work or with our minds or in our own stamina outside of the realm of prepping for the Olympics. But it's exactly the same and and I agree completely with your coach. Yes and the the reflection time matters and I wanted to look at the Y. This problem first and then kind of get into the how but I think probably everyone listening knows what it feels like to be overloaded with too much going on in our organizations. I WanNa Start Juliet with talking about why. This is such a big problem. Why do you think so? Many people feel helpless about overcoming. The business there's so many different reasons I just. My brain froze up with seven things. I wanted to say at the same time. But the so first of all people tend to have a personalization of the problem of business so deep down inside we all kind of feel like if we could just do something differently on an individual basis that we wouldn't feel this crushing sense of constant business and overload so we tend to have self blame sort of us into this mentality where we think if we could just find the right podcast if we could just find the right filing system there must be something about our will our discipline or something about us that is really uniquely dragging down but when we studied the phenomenon of professional overload. We actually found that there were twenty seven different things that made people overloaded and very few of them had a sense of individual responsibility. They were things. Like the season of an industry or the economy or the quarterly stockholders shareholders call in public companies. Things that had completely nothing to do with an individual failing in the Olympics of productivity. But that's how people perceive it Most corporations get overloaded for a number of different reasons corporations or organizations complexity is very very seductive and so we get more and more and more complex and the more complex we get the more systems and processes and meetings and metrics become dependent part of our life and complexity is kind of drawing US along but there are many reasons social. Conformity plays a big part which we could unpack. If you like the intrusions of technology we could probably spend the entire time talking about so. It's a stew of forces that are weighted against us at against us as individuals who simply want to find a way of working that feels sane and humane and meaningful. So I do want to dive into some of those things that you brought up and get real really practical and specific. I really WANNA highlight. Why this is a problem you You've done a lot of research in found some kind of alarming statistics. This one is haunting to me so my organization Julia. We have about seven hundred and fifty.

"Stopped coming who's the better Tipper? Carrie Kahn, NPR news Havana. And in addition, we are now hearing Exxon Mobil has filed a lawsuit against the Cuban government under the same law over a refinery and other assets. You're listening to all things considered from NPR news. If you've ever signed up for anything online, you've probably taken a capture test and automated test to distinguish humans from machines. Click on all the images that contain a stop sign. Check the boxes that show cats. But as Jacob Goldstein from our planet money podcast reports the designers of the tests have a problem machines are getting so smart that they'll soon be better than humans at passing the tests. The most popular version of the I am not a robot test is made by Google called recapture and the engineer who runs Google's recaptured team is named Aaron Mellon fund one day a few years ago. He was telling his boss about all the things his team was trying to do to stay ahead of the machines. But eventually Mellon fund just had to break it to her pretty soon. The body will be able to solve any challenge. And I mentioned to her that in the next three to five years. The current challenges are no longer going to be working we need to move to a new system. And so she turned to me and just ask me why? Aren't you doing that? So he did Mellon Fontenay team started building a new kind of recapture where there is no test at all not even one of those boxes you check. That says I am not a robot Google released. This new version last year sites are still in the process of switching over in. The new version there is just a little notice at the bottom of the page. If you don't see that, you don't even know recaptures analyzing you to decide if you're a human the way it works is recaptured does the analysis and sends a score back to the website. That score is the probability that you're a human. Then it's up to the website. What to do? Maybe they make you lugging again, if you're submitting a comment or review, maybe they send it to moderation. And now there's a big question here that Google hasn't really answered publicly without the test. How was Google estimating the probability that you are human? I asked Aaron Mellon font that Google engineer. The reason we don't say too much is that we do have adversaries trying to beat us at all times. We do say publicly that we adapt to a particular site and behavior for that site. In other words for each site that installs this new version of recapture Google's computers analysts Pacific behavior for that site. It might include how users move the mouse or scroll down the page, and then every time a user comes to that site machine. Say is this user doing what a person normally does on this site, or are they acting weird? So the tests works differently for every site just because you can get a good score. And what website if you're an attacker doesn't mean that you can get a good score on all the websites. We also know that in older versions of recapture. Google used information about whether a user had visited Google sites. And was logged into a Google account is Google still using that information in the new recapture. I would say it matters a lot less a lot less than what than it used to. Okay. Okay. Our goal is that it doesn't matter. That's your endgame. Right. You're not there yet. But you're getting there. Well, I've already said too much a few days after I talked with Alan funt. I spoke with a Google spokesman. And he was able to tell me that it's still matters in recapture whether or not a user has an active Google account. But he said recaptured does not use any information about what the user does on.

"There was like a magnet, and I would run into the living room to see what they were. Laughing at you. And with our I was watching, you know, a stand up comic on TV. I'd watch a stand up comic on TV. And he would be talking and the best comparison is is if it wasn't English to me because as a four year old you have no reference. Yeah. My mother-in-law. Yeah. Yeah. Says I don't even know what the fuck mother-in-law is. But you know, you knew the guy was funny because he was saying that a certain way, right? I got the idea was cadence and everything and I remember sitting on the floor and looking back on my parents were hysterical. And my dad would be wiping his is to be crying, whatever somebody was saying the first inclination of how to achieve this. And it seemed to be with all my neurosis about staying clean and not touching things. This was a comfortable place to be bathed in the sound of laughter. And I remember one Sunday night, maybe five six years old. I sat there and they were watching candid camera. Yeah. Alan Alan funt, who was at a reassuring kind of doc. Type in my mind. You familiar old Jew? Yes. But he explained to me, and I've never had that before he explained to me what he was going to do. And we said here's what we're going to do. Here's what I'm gonna do. Yeah. Yeah. This is a fake office here, and we have hired a young lady to answer phone, and I told her as the boss under no one certain terms. You cannot miss a phone call you have to you know, my whole life, and my whole business is predicated on getting these phone calls. You must get the phone call. So she we know that there's a woman hired to answer the phone. He shows me that there's a rope attached to the desk, and that rope goes through a wall into another room where every time the phone rings. And she goes to reach for it. They're gonna pull the rope. And the whole desk is going to slide across the room away from her. Yeah. So now, this is the first I understand this English. It's not in the form of a joke. Right. Hold me. Exactly. What he has said as a five year old. I understand that anticipation bubbles inside of me. I mean, it's like when you're hiding behind the couch waiting for. Part. And I look back at my parents, and we're all waiting and waiting and the woman sits down and the phone rings. And she goes to reach for it. They pulled the rope. And it goes and her jaw drops. And I was hysteric. You remember that? I do first time at the first time. I it's exactly like, yeah. And it was the first time I laughed, and my parents, my parents would probably in their twenties and thirties time, they were laughing in the three of us were laughing. And I said, oh my God. This is the best feeling, you know, as an adult. I realize that when you can have that kind of deep laughter. There's a endorphin raise. It was an amazing now I never had the idea that I just wanted to try to redo that. So again, no understanding of the concept of this guy has a television show. This guy has an audience know, this guy's getting paid. I just tried to reclaim that for the rest of my life. And the way I reclaim that. You know, and I I have since been diagnosed with. Severe ADHD and other issues and part of the issues that have diagnosed I don't think of the repercussions. I don't think ahead. I just I'm really impulsive. So I would sometimes at school and places in the moment do something in in my mind. You know, whenever gets quiet in the room. I'm going to scream, but I, you know, and that's just ridiculous. It's I don't know that it's even funny. I didn't have a friend in the world to say watch this as soon as it gets quiet of great. So I would just, you know, the room would be quiet, and I go. And everybody would look at me and the teacher would just stop. And I would be laughing hysterically alone alone. You're that kid. Well, it wasn't. I not the class clown..

I'm so it was ten minutes a hell and then finally. I finished and I walked off to nothing, and what I found out is this sound that I heard was just somebody walking by setting up. I had gone short. I had no idea. But it was hell and every night was that hellish at the end of the first week. They said miss Ross would like to speak to you. And I thought oh my God, I'm being released. This is going to be the best night of my life. I've never wanted to be fired so much, and I went into a room, and she said to me how I just wanna tell you. 'cause gene saw you on Merv Griffin. You one of the funniest guys I've ever seen. Can you stay with us for another two weeks? Okay. And every night. I went you know, it's like playing a crucial. I've never played a crucial.

I wouldn't I didn't want to be seen by anybody attending the hotel. I didn't wanna talk. I was so embarrassed I thought it was the end of my career. Wow. And you had had how much stand up experienced before that like real stand up experience. Oh, I don't think I had been on stage. One hundred times the Alan funt, by the way. There was no more unlikely. When calm a comedian. But there's no more unlikely character purveyor of comedy than Alan funt. And that's what worked for him. You know, just like most can you picture the candid camera thing? But let me tell you something do, you know, the cameras started on radio, right? No. That's how it started so sense. But that's Esther. So Alan funt came from radio, and he's very dry. He's not you wouldn't see him or think that he's a funny guy. But that's what worked because he approached everybody as the every man and his voice and his and his delivery was the every man. So you believe that you were getting a call from the company you believed he Willman Charlie McCarthy, I think the ventriloquist what's at Bergen in. Yeah. He started on the radio to a ventriloquist time to be alive. Yeah. Weird times. All right. It's easier. So people don't see your lips move wanna know about this a little more Dan Ross in a second..

"Dysfunctional family. My my family, and they were very supportive and kind of you know, in the fifties. I was born in the fifties in the fifties. You know, you're either insane or you're not. So I wasn't insane. They weren't going to have me locked up. I did need help. But I don't think that was identified at that time. So they allowed my craziness. You know, in my craziness was well, I learned comedy my parents, loved comedy, and they watch stand up comedy. I remember hearing laughter, and I was always drawn to whatever room. They laughed it. What do we laughing at? And whether they were watching if they're watching a stand up comic as three year old. I didn't understand. I had no point of reference. You know, he'd be talking about your mother-in-law. Right. I don't know what a fucking mother-in-law is. It's not funny. The first thing I remember. And this is what informed me but didn't educate me. I saw Alan funt. Do I was sitting my parents doing candid camera? Yeah. And Alan funt explained to me a very rudimentary way. Way and everybody at home. It was Sunday night. He explained to me we're going to pretend that we have an office this desk here. I got a rope on the desk. The rope goes through the wall, and I have a phone on the desk. We're going to hire young ladies who think that the receptionist and they're going to be told I'm gonna pretend I'm the boss. You must answer the phone. You could never not miss the call every time they reach for the phone somebody on the other room is gonna pull the rope in the desk is going to go away. So I remember being as a little kid. I had that anticipation of surprise. I went, and I looked at my parents, and we're all waiting, and it kind of included us and the the first lady goes and the phone rings and the he pulls the desk away, and I see her face in horror, and Aw, and I almost choked. I my heart dropped, and it was the funniest thing. I ever saw in my life. My parents were laughing and that was where switch went off. I went okay.

"This sunny Sunday while somewhere in church. Others rallied for love and equality with the bible teaches law in general. So I think that overall message is more important than anything else. Organizers of Sunday's rally say instead of reacting with hate in their hearts, they use compassion to support the LGBTQ community. Welcome has been pretty quiet about most hot button issues. So to see people come out and bright colors and big beautiful fines. Narragansett town council president Susan Sicily Bonanno, that's the sister of congressman David Sicily, apparently is dropping her bid for re election. Cellini bananas sent a letter to local media outlets and officials on Friday with the notification of her decision. She was pulled over as you recall by Warwick police officer back in August for suspicion of driving under the influence while the police department was being filmed were the AFC show live PD, but she wasn't arrested the decision received a lot of criticism for alleged preferential treatment as you'll recall, but the police department claimed that the officer didn't even know who it was stopping. But the sister of the congressman not running for re election to this local post analysts are weighing in on this pro fun group that has decided apparently to cancel some television ads. This broke from eyewitness news over the weekend and Kim colonie. Has more fundamental change the Rhode Island affiliate of the Republican governors association is pulling their TV ads for Allan Fung. That's a bad sign. It means they believe that he is in a very tough position to win this election. This news political analyst, Jill Fleming, says it's not uncommon for national groups to make changes to where they spend their money, especially in the closing weeks of the campaign. Fleming says top Republicans have likely been monitoring polls that show Fung trailing democratic incumbent Gina Raimondo. The timing though, he says is tough for fun. Well, the last two weeks voters really stopped paying attention the election and most of the polls I've seen the governor's race has undecided. Vote around ten percent now usual was still enough that swing the election. Meanwhile, the democratic governors association has allocated twice as much money to support Raimondo roughly two million dollars. Well, the governor's own campaign has already spent roughly five and a half million about four times more than Fung, which means if the idea is pulling out the ads are going to be dwarfed by the democratic governors association. And the Raimondo ads which is not a good sign. Alan funt Fung's campaign spokesman Andrew Augusta's told eyewitness news in a statement, quote when running against the governor who has raised millions of dollars from out of state donors to pay for false negative advertising. You are always happy to get support from groups that want to tell the truth and expose her disastrous record, adding we're very appreciative of how they've set us up for success. And now it's our job to punch this over the finish line and the head of Rhode Island forward tells us they're still evaluating whether they will return to the. Airwaves before election day. A spokesman for governor Raimondo's campaign tells us the Republicans change in strategy will not change her focus on job training and economic development not going to change the focus on advertising on television. Either the bombardment continues. In fact, the democratic governors association is poured two million dollars into the election. Trying to get the incumbent reelected and Raimondo herself has spent what to date five and a half million bucks in that range. So that's a lot of scuttle a man's been arrested for a deadly DUI accident in providence in his Eric Halpern from I witness.

Do John Kuna is the anchor, what, would you, do one of. The highest rated newsmagazine franchises in recent. Years, during his thirty five year tenure at ABC, news he's reported extensively on of. Different programs different platforms and served as an anchor for primetime and today for some reason. He joins me here in the rich Steven show John how are you I'm good thank? You for having me on in fact we're about to start filming another what would you do scenario us, we thank you well what can you, give us a hint of what you're about to start filming. Well I can, tell you where nail salon 'cause you're in West Palm. Beach right yes So we're? Going to have. Somebody, stealing a ring at a nail salon and wondering well anyone say anything of? Course, and so is the victim but what. Will people say or do you, will? Anyone Well they stay quiet will they will they sound the alarm this is just one of them we're doing another one. In the same place today we've been really busy. I mean there's, so much happening in. This country, so much material to work these days when you witness the divisiveness is going on in this country we took credit touch upon all kinds of. Issues and, tonight we're we're taking on politics I mean what do you do if you see a man with a make America then have kicked out of the. Restaurant simply because he's wearing that hat? And conversely what if he's wearing? A t shirt that says he's anti Trump and. The manager tries to kick him out because he doesn't? Agree with his politics what will people do watching this now where were these this, specific, thing this was, the one, that really caught my eye, the Trump stuff where what city did you do those We were in Jersey in the city that we purposely. Picked that has It's like fifty Democrats we didn't want to go to any one community that was home one, time the other and I, gotta tell you I mean people there were some agreed with the manager for kicking out the guy with. The Makah hat Impeach forty five. Shirt but by, and large a lot of. Folks stood up. And walked out in protest not. Against the management for not allowing this man to express his feelings violating his freedom of? Expression they they were more angry about, that then then Jim taking us down on politics that's pretty interesting we're talking to John, from ABC's what would you, do your question John over the years since you've been doing this show has anybody compared to talent fund Well you know that was a? Great show right without a doubt We we take it, a step beyond that of course I mean now kind of cameras a lot of fun and we now and then we'll we'll. Do? Some fun scenarios to because they can't all be so serious right. But, I like, to think that we really. Are? Having an impact Especially right now because not a day. Goes by when you don't see some. Vital video, because all, these issues all these, things happened in the past racism bullying happened but now we have the ability to capture them everyone's gotta Kimmo video cameras are. These. Phones and also for media has a lot to do with with Spreading these videos throughout the country and the world Onto that the, fact that politics are now get tweeting. And say whatever they feel they want to, say it's, almost as if it gives Americans permission you know. Emboldens them to say whatever they want to, say because, if the president is tweeting about this for, example then why can't I write the president tweets You Bring up the Alan funt. Calls all I get calls all the time from folks any John I. Had what would you do moment? Today where were? You I thought you were going to come out, Omaha, Portland We traveled with? The show to we like to take just in, Kentucky Because geography matters. In the way people respond yeah I think we need to come to you definitely need to, come to south Florida because there's some things that. You can do here and I got a great idea for a show I'm. Sure every time people run into you. That, they must pitch you idea so I figured I should. Do to okay. Tommy I I let me put, a disclaimer on it, I love dogs I don't have anything in stocks but. In south Florida we have a tremendous problem of people taking dogs everywhere they go from. A restaurant inside to a Costco. Or Publix or whatever store it is and this is not service animals they call them. Compassionate animals or they just take their pets in. At for some reason all these businesses don't have a problem with it What we just. Did that one two weeks ago a service dog in a restaurant and somebody complaining that. You might not be a service. Dog and you'll hear both sides reacting so we've done it and we put a car. Hot car what will people say if they see I've and a very, hot day for example but there was the very one you mentioned the service dogs are real issue not only it sons but. All kinds of service animals I'm playing restaurants no doubt it. We're talking to John can Yoenis from ABC, what what would you do and when he walks out when you walk out that's. Why I think a balanced fund because a. Lot of times you walk out you kind of sneak up on people and, then oh my God, and obviously you know this show. Is doing great, because more and. More people instantly know who you are Yeah well it seems that way right, they we've been doing it for twelve years so, that has a. Lot of, with it, and again I think right now is very sensitive to a lot of these issues They there there's a sense of relief when I come out thank God it wasn't real right but I gotta tell you sometimes people are. In. Tears, there were so emotionally caught? Up in that moment the show restores your, faith in people just when we think we're. All going, to hell in a hand basket with all the divisiveness in this country You know along comes a. Hero and. It happens in every one of our scenarios who. Does something. Beautiful eloquent for a, stranger and it reminds us that by March you people. Are good yeah and and that's very important and. That's why after we hang up I. Want you to go to the president's office there at ABC and tell them show should be on year round I said. Right after we hang up I think, you should go walk into the president of ABC's office and tell them that you want to show on year round Going to be a lot of work Yeah What you're, doing you're actually doing a great service and especially like the things that you're doing tonight with the maga- hat and impeach forty five. Shirt that's what people are talking about, today and there are people to get, offended and there are people that stand up for other. People and as you said, it it definitely restores a lot of beliefs and people because there are people that stand up for other people and in most, situations you wouldn't think that what they do and that's, what, what what would you do comes out and just, shows and I think that's so. Important What's happening this weekend in Washington the, white supremacists hard to your.
