    Transcript Jason:
    [0:23] Welcome to the Jason and Scot show this is episode 285 being recorded on Thursday January 20th 2022 that’s a heck of a lot of 2012’s.
    I’m your host Jason retailgeek Goldberg and as usual I’m here with your Cohoes Sky Wingo.
    Scot:
    [0:41] Hey Jason and welcome back Jason Scott chaussures Jason is kind of a shame we neither of us were able to make it in our F but,
    one of the things I don’t miss is every year that I’ve gone to in our f for the last three times I’ve went I’ve had trouble getting there or been stuck there so I think
    then our F should use this opportunity to move that show out of January and maybe look at something like March or something if they’re going to be in New York.
    Jason:
    [1:09] Or to the like Bahamas or something.
    Scot:
    [1:12] Yeah even better yeah let’s make it a destination of it.
    Jason:
    [1:17] You know you have my vote I’m not sure you have a majority of votes see you if you have mine that would be awesome.
    Scot:
    [1:24] Yeah just watching and it seemed like some folks went and then they had a lot of cancellations so seemed like it was in kind of one of those weird.
    Hybrid states were if you went and then,
    person you are going to go see present canceled you sat there in a room with people watching a zoom so that’s number Super satisfying but I do think it seemed like some folks you and I know got together and had some dinners and had fund so hopefully that was that was good for everyone.
    Jason:
    [1:50] Yeah I had a little bit of foam oh I think you know some people I would have liked to see you know I saw you know social media of them getting together and whatnot and.
    It’s just super bad luck I have a feeling if this show was a month later it would be a lot less controversial that traveled to.
    Scot:
    [2:09] Yeah and what did you want to talk about this week.
    Jason:
    [2:14] Well you know if we had gone to NRF one of the things that I always like to do it in our f is kind of check in with a lot of our co-workers in the industry and kind of you know get a consensus,
    about how the year ended up for everyone and what they thought the big issues were going to be for 20 21.
    So since we didn’t get to do that at shop at NRF I thought maybe we could do it on this podcast for our listeners.
    Scot:
    [2:42] Yeah that sounds good and then I know you always put together a little for your clients kind of the summary deck and I know that’s hard for our podcast listeners so do you have a way to solve that.
    Jason:
    [2:55] Yeah so what I thought I would do I put together like a 36 slide deck completely full of numbers and what I thought I would do is describe all of the graphs on the podcast.
    Scot:
    [3:09] Sounds good that sounds good and it’s going to be a we’ll go through it and intricate detail data point by day.
    Jason:
    [3:14] Yeah because the one complaint I get about the show is that it’s not hard enough to listen to.
    Scot:
    [3:18] That’s that’s from your mom.
    Jason:
    [3:22] So that probably i

    [0:23] Welcome to the Jason and Scot show
    this is episode 283 being recorded on Tuesday sept December twenty first twenty Twenty-One I’m your host Jason retailgeek Goldberg and as usual I’m here with your co-host Scot Wingo.
    Scot:
    [0:39] Hey Jason and welcome back Jason Scott show listeners Jason how are the holidays treating you so far.
    Jason:
    [0:46] They are treating me really well it’s been super interesting what’s going on in our industry and getting ready to take the family to California to see my mom and brother.
    Scot:
    [0:59] Very fun California versus Chicago seems like a smart smart choice this time.
    Jason:
    [1:04] Yes early and my relationship with my wife we agreed that we would visit her Michigan in-laws and Thanksgiving and my California relatives in December seems weather prudent if nothing else.
    Scot:
    [1:16] Yeah smart I like your
    like you’re negotiating strategies so we are recording this here live on December 21st so we are in the very last tail end of holiday 21
    and Jason you had some some interesting data that you had parse through that I thought we could start with it’s going to be largely kind of the November data but it’s kind of the best data we have,
    until we get into January and see how the holiday played out and then we’ll do a quick
    checkpoint on what you’re hearing from clients and then I think both of us wanted to kind of share our big stories for retail and e-commerce for 2021
    so why don’t you kick us off with some data.
    Jason:
    [1:57] That sounds amazing so yeah so the data we are talking about is the US Department of Commerce data we get a an update every month so you know last week we got the,
    the update that includes November and in general November sales were up
    sixteen percent from November of twenty twenty so I always coach people that we should look at year-over-year not month over month so pretty healthy growth in 2021 from 2020
    if you look at year-to-date so January through November
    we are up about 18% from 2020 and if you look at e-commerce we were up about 12 percent from November of 2020 so I you know I always
    put this data out on social media and I got a ton of,
    interesting responses this year on that data everyone’s like
    hey Jason why are you comparing to November of 2020 like we’re in the mi

    [0:16] Hey Jason and welcome back Jason Scott show listeners.

    Scot:
    [0:15] Hey Jason and welcome back Jason Scott show listeners Jason is a fellow Gadget addict one of our favorite brands that we love from
    consumer perspective is Anchor and then we also spend a lot of time here on the show talking about anchor because it’s a very interesting brand that is one of the few that we call kind of
    digitally native Amazon born so today on the show we are very excited to welcome
    Eric villines he is the head of Global Communications at anchor and is based out of Sunny Seattle Eric welcome to the show.
    Eric:
    [0:50] Thanks for having me we’ve also been having about two months of rain so we’re living up to our our cliche.
    Jason:
    [0:59] That for the last two months that might have sounded bad but being here in Chicago I have a feeling that rain is about to start looking pretty good to me.
    Eric:
    [1:07] Yeah means known cold and wind.
    Jason:
    [1:09] Exactly all of the above although it’s been pretty mild so far.
    Eric before we jump into all the anchor discussions we always like to get sort of a brief background about our guests and maybe you could tell us what your role is an anchor.
    Eric:
    [1:25] Sure so I run Global Communications at anchor Innovations which is essentially a fancy way of saying public relations.
    Which in time it’s sort of corporate Communications you could be crisis Corporate social responsibility and then obviously the most exciting part of what I do which would be product PR dealing with the media on reviews and,
    I’m getting the word out of on the cool gadgets we.
    Jason:
    [1:51] That’s awesome so does that mean you have one of everything.
    Eric:
    [1:55] I have two of everything.
    It’s a funny story I’ve worked in consumer electronics for a long time and I remember Steven Yang who hired me personally for the role,
    I remember I was in China and I said I want to make sure that I’ve got budget to give everyone on my team,
    you know one of the products and he giggled and I’m absolutely serious,
    we all have to you know live it and breathe it and love it and know the good and the bad aspects of all of our products because we’re talking with the media all the time so I kind of.
    I’m kind of insistent that everyone on my team has the products and then the other part is we all we can never run out of battery that’s like that’s like a major faux pas here,
    if I ever hear the words even coming out of my own mouth that my phone is almost out of juice that’s super bad as a charging company.
    Jason:
    [2:45] That does seem off brand I am I have a little bit of a fetish for your products and the thing I’ve noticed is every time I have a family gathering I get completely cleaned out.
