    S08E11 - Brad Englert

    Today's episode is with Brad Englert. Brad wrote a very good and easy to digest business book called Spheres of Influence based on his experience being one of the top CIOs in the country. So we spend a lot of time going over some of the things that make hiring and being hired better for both the employees as well as the employer. There are a lot of his personal war stories in the book that we didn't get to, but we covered a great deal here. So with that, here is Brad Englert.

    S08E10 - Brett Johnson, FBI's #1 most wanted

    S08E10 - Brett Johnson, FBI's #1 most wanted

    FBI's former #1 most wanted, Brett Johnson joined me today. This was one of my favorite episodes for many reasons. I think people spend too much time avoiding the criminal element when there is so much to be gained by talking to them. We only got to a little less than half of what I wanted to discuss with him but you can tell this is a bit of a roller coaster, talking about his background and his life leading him into a life of crime and eventually prison. This was as much a therapy session as it was an interview. So we'll have to have him back at some point because I don't want to arbitrarily end a conversation when there is so much left to discuss. But for now, please enjoy this trip to the other side, with Brett Johnson.

    S08E09 - Justin Follin and David Greenspan Ph.D

    Today I'm with Justin Follin and Doctor David Greenspan. We dig into high-performance psychology as it relates both to people on sports teams but also largely we focus on business. We walk through their techniques to do group surveys, 360 reviews, TILT analysis and so much more. We also dug into my serious distaste for project managers... well not all of them. With that, please enjoy this fun conversation with Justin Follin and David Greenspan.

    S08E08 - Chris Gerritz and Ian Perry

    S08E08 - Chris Gerritz and Ian Perry

    Today was a fun conversation with Ian Perry and Chris Gerritz. We took on the task of doing an in-person version of Thinkers and Drinkers. During the interview we drank 3 ciders, one beer and a bottle and a half of whiskey - so we took the task seriously. We discussed the format for their group, why it works, the rules but we also decided to take on two topics as a test. We first discussed if the Internet is inherently "good" and then we took on abortion. It was a complicated and interesting discussion that I think we handled well while inebriated. And don't worry, I got them an Uber home after. So with that, say a prayer for our livers and please enjoy this drunken adventure with Ian Perry and Chris Gerritz.
