Well, I'm selling it to mostly the high school teams, and really what I'm selling is, you know that parents can see their kids and media coverage. Great. What are you selling? It took him a minute and goes, Well, I'm selling the fact that parents are spending money to be have their kids on a football team. They want to see their kids names in the newspaper.

    Memorable Quotes from the Episode:


    [00:42:51] "So I think everything needs to start on the business side first, so ideally, that's very clear for everybody where the business with a five year plan, if you will, for the business is so that anything else is a strategy to support that plan, right? Otherwise, it's kind of just wishful thinking. If if you want to go to Mars from a Data perspective, how can you create models for the company to be able to do that? But then if the company doesn't want to get there, then it's pointless. So that's why it's you need a business to take that first step."

Great Community building podcast

The host has a very solid voice for podcasting and deftly manages an open data science community to answer questions from all aspects of the field. There are multiple types of casts he hosts and I would recommend starting with his office hours episodes to see him at his best.
