    David Parker | A San Francisco Conservative: The Timeless Principles of Economics Are Essential To Preserve American Democracy

    David Parker | A San Francisco Conservative: The Timeless Principles of Economics Are Essential To Preserve American Democracy

    In his book, David Parker discusses both ends of the political spectrum and everything in between, and he reminds readers that the timeless principles of economics are essential to the preservation of American democracy.
    Parker went back to school at age 50 to gain a deeper understanding of these enduring ideas — and the missteps of nations that deviated from them — to write A San Francisco Conservative. Just as his first book, Income and Wealth, provided readers with a thought-provoking examination of the foundations on which this nation’s freedom rests, his latest book also serves as a message of reassurance and challenge to the conventional political thinking of the day.
    The issues Parker addresses are those he has focused on for more than half a century, throughout his 40-year career as a teacher in San Francisco public schools. In A San Francisco Conservative, he reminds readers that “crises” have affected the American economy numerous times over the nation’s history — but they pass.
    Parker provides well-researched support for his belief that economic opportunities always exist. He cautions that government leaders — especially those who identify themselves as progressives — are jeopardizing the very democracy that has produced prosperity.
    Themes covered in A San Francisco Conservative range from education to taxes and the political process itself. Parker challenges the widespread belief that a “conservative” (whether a resident of San Francisco or elsewhere) lacks empathy or a personal commitment to help those who are less fortunate. Government programs supported by many in today’s progressive movement to counter this misunderstanding merely increase the nation’s deficit in dangerous ways, Parker says.
    Parker began his career in education at the age of 24 and served students at San Francisco’s inner-city public elementary schools for four decades as a music teacher, followed by 10 years as a volunteer. While pursuing his career in education, Parker became a successful real estate investor. It was success in business that focused his writing, teaching and career as a professional musician. Parker spent 20 years as a member of the Berkeley Symphony Orchestra, then 20 years as leader of the Dave Parker Sextet, which twice headlined the San Francisco Fillmore Jazz Festival. His essays have been featured in The Economist, The Financial Times and prestigious law journals.
    Scheduled to coincide with the publication of David Parker’s playfully titled newest book, A San Francisco Conservative, a new podcast series sharing that title showcases Parker’s views on the proper role of government and how individuals can arrange for the principles of a free-market economy to work in their favor. As the podcast’s co-host, longtime journalist Tom Martin, has noted, “David Parker’s scholarly approach to the study of political economy provides much-needed historical context to important topics dominating the news, including the progressives’ call for dramatically increased government spending.”

    Dr. Tiffany Brandreth | Respectfully Disrupting The Industry by Re-igniting DEI

    Dr. Tiffany Brandreth | Respectfully Disrupting The Industry by Re-igniting DEI

    Dr. Tiffany Brandreth is affectionally referred to as either 'Dr. T' or 'Dr. B' by her clients. She is a leadership and organizational psychologist uniquely specializing in the intersection between Bias, Power, and Equity within Behavior, Process, Culture and Hierarchy.
    Her expertise with C-Suite teams was earned through “speaking truth to power” long before its concept was coined, examining their health through foundational principles in systems theory, human behavioral sciences, and positive psychology. This gained the breadth and depth of experience within the toughest arenas partnering, challenging, and elevating executive leadership teams where she uncovers “What is being left unsaid?” as the source where breakthroughs occur, greatness thrives, and change begins.
    Dr. B has been quietly yet powerfully shaping the DE&I field as one of the original pioneers since the late 1990s. Her vast experience leveraged from both internal and external leadership roles has kept her strategies, guidance, and approach rooted in reality as opposed to idealist theories impractical for the complexities and politics only understood from being on the ‘inside.’
    Clients are kept confidential due to the risk, liability, or implications that bias, oppression, and truth can bring, unless permission to disclose. Anonymity is never compromised which allows the right and real work to get accomplished.
    Quality over Quantity; Principle over Promotion; Truth over Preservation. These operating principles are why Tiffany’s reputation precedes her as a highly trusted, heavy weight disruptor yet with a delicate touch that inspires all to evolve. She is stepping out more visibly with urgency to help the industry re-think, re-educate and re-ignite DEI.

Fred Shaw Episode

Wow!!!!! What an interview!! I feel like I got a new understanding of what is happening in our country!!! Great interview!! I really enjoy your show!!

Ambivalent - but not too ambivalent

Assigning stars is very frustrating at times. I found some of the discussion worthy of 5 stars and some of it not worthy of one.
Just finished listening to Batya Ungar-Sargon, "Woke Media or Class Warfare." Ungar-Sargon did help me sort through tension in national news coverage. I have felt for quite awhile that something was amiss with national news coverage and how it doesn't reflect news and values outside of NY City or the West Coast. Also, her framing of how the Green New Deal and other perhaps well-meaning policies are not socially just or fair helped me understand a little more about how "wokism" really plays a part in the efforts of the Left. In her parting remarks she complains about "both sides" politicizing the Uvalde massacre. Really? I applaud Beto O'Rourke for confronting Gov. Abbott at the press conference in which Abbott and the Texas power players (Dan Patick, Ted Cruz, John Cornyn, Ken Paxton, state and local law enforcement - oh, and the NRA). stood before the parents and community members of slain children and proclaimed, "It could've been worse." You can claim that "both sides" made it political but we have YET to get the plain and unadulterated facts out about what happened. (You might recall that the story changed repeatedly over the first several days following the shooting. We won't know for sure what happened until AFTER the Nov. elections!) I really did not appreciate one bit that comment that equated the Abbott-GOP-NRA narrative (or cover up) and whatever the truth might be. "Both sides" just don't do some things equally.
One of the issues about your podcast that bothers me a lot is that one of your sponsors (at least of this episode) is MyPillow.com. I know you have to have sponsors. However, I will not be subscribing to your podcast until you lose this one. In my opinion, Mike Lindell has done terrible harm to this country and he should probably be in jail. He continues to do harm. He associates himself with the far-right conspiracy voices who have repeatedly called for Trump to be reinstated. His alliance with QAnon is well known. You claim to be on the "right side" of things. I understand that this might be rhetorical to some degree and that you personally can be described as center-right. However, by accepting MyPillow.com sponsorship IS to associate you and your podcast with one of the worst far-right conspiracy theorists who continue to call for the overthrow of our government.
As I write this I notice that Walmart (not exactly the astian of American values) has pulled MyPillow from its shelves. That probably won't get me going to Walmart anytime soon, but it does show that Walmart is starting to respond to reality.
I've listened to 3 of your podcasts and I've liked all three. So, keep up the good work and please shed yourself of awful sponsors.
