Retro 1980s with Calico Kids Author Todd Downing-Ep.15

Jason is blown away by the period-specific intro theme, then he and Chris revisit the 1980s, including music, dyed hair, rugby shirts, and very short shorts. Jason describes how Possums in Australia are more likable and cuter than their American counterparts. Chris takes Jason through a gauntlet of the 1980s (music, sports, nuclear proliferation, movies) with a quiz. The two then interview Author Todd Downing about his early 1980s period piece, Calico Kids. Todd shares his typical writing and audiobook development processes and his inspiration to create a Spotify playlist of deep tracks from the early 1980s that goes with the book. Todd does some myth-busting about publishing, and the three then dive into their shared experiences from their teenage years.

Increasing Life with Christy Turlington-Pt.2, Ep.29

Chris, Jason, and Christy pick up where they left off and somehow transition from race inequities in maternal care to noir movies in Nordic countries.  Christy describes the good news of how the current Presidential administration is approaching maternal healthcare and takes on a myth to debunk before describing Every Mother Counts' "special sauce."  Then the three talk about coming out of the pandemic and some of the good things that come with them, including Christy going to a baseball game to see Chris's favorite team, the San Francisco Giants. Chris and Jason catch up after the interview, befuddled by the realization that Maternal health was such a problem in the first place. Then the two rant about the problems with guns in America and gambling in Australia. Chris shares some Good News and the two discuss the next episode with Doug Keene.   MealPass inquiries, please contact Jason Graham-Nye at [email protected] ...

Courageous Marketing with Former Jordan Brand’s Tom Kelley-Ep.21

Jason & Chris catch up on the state of the pandemic in Australia and America before diving into a quiz on some of the most successful marketing and advertising campaigns. Tom Kelley talks about how the powerful Nike ad campaigns that were developed during his time at Nike and Weiden + Kennedy started with staying on mission by listening to the “voice of the athlete,” which is democratized by another element of the mission “if you have a body then you are an athlete.” Chris asks Tom what it takes to make decisions that are bold and brave and potentially not in the short-term business interests of a large, for-profit company. Tom takes the concept further to describe the importance of courage in expressing a perspective for anyone. He also reminds us that this has been a part of Nike’s DNA since the early days with the outspoken Steve Prefontaine. Tom talks about the importance of culture in an organization, where he thinks it comes from, and names three things that help make a culture worth being in. Jason, Chris, & Tom discuss some of the marketing field changes over the last 10 years as direct marketing principles that have worked their way into traditional marketing are the tension of considering the consumers you serve with consumers being nodes of information and the importance of considering how you earn your way into the conversation.  Tom discusses his time managing the Jordan Brand for Nike, including the challenge of being the steward for an already elite brand and taking it somewhere new. Tom then wraps with the next chapter in his career, starting his own firm. Quiz soundtrack, Giulia's Chase, © 2020 by ...
