The Lost Episode
Show Flow1- intro 2- Last Week show - Kiss the ground3- Big story of the day - 4- Meetings and events industry -4- Update on One for the Ages- 5- Update on P4A podcast - market research option-6- Show and tell (one or two things-- something you are watching, reading listening to, doing ) Notes: (number is associated with segment- mm= Mike McAllen/GG= Geraldine Gatehouse)2) MM Kiss the ground - The message is too simple, The good (soil health) versus (chemical) bad farmer is not the best way to get the chemical dependent farms onboard.No mention of how these shifting needs public investment for the technical resources to adapt and shift. COWS --After looking at all of the available evidence on holistic grazing, and claims made by the likes of the movie, 'grass-fed livestock are not a climate solution'. Grazing livestock are net contributors to the climate problem, as are all livestock. Rising animal production and consumption, whatever the farming system and animal type, is causing damaging greenhouse gas release and contributing to changes in land use. Ultimately, if high consuming individuals and countries want to do something positive for the climate, maintaining their current consumption levels but simply switching to grass-fed beef is not a solution. Eating less meat, of all types, is.Good news- Governor Newsom announced an executive order to elevate the importance of stewardship of our lands to secure our future. It is great Governor’s focus on climate solutions for agriculture and our natural resources at large. We cannot address the state’s profound wildfire risks without addressing the conservation and management of our forests, grasslands, and farmlands. Nor can we address our pandemic-induced recession without addressing the resilience of California’s food and farming systems.3. GG Big story - for me, Goldman Sachs: A democratic sweep would mean faster economic recovery. Contrary to what the president is saying, GS says that polls suggest a blue wave in which Democrats take control of Washington, and they in turn would upgrade their forecasts. Taxes may go up but Biden is promising a bonanza of government spending that, couple with extremely low-interest rates, would likely speed up the economy.I just watched Biden in his Florida Town Hall )- the WH declined the invitation - and it was refreshing to hear whole sentences, sensible responses, and a caring approach. It gave me a bit of heart. Unfortunately, I saw headlines about it being a bit of a setup, so need to look more into that.GG - Awful quote of the day: Senator Mike Lee - Democracy isn’t the objective. Liberty, peace and prosperity are. We want the human condition to flourish. Rank democracy can thwart that.3 MM In a few days, more people in Trump’s orbit tested positive for coronavirus than in all of Taiwanhttps://www.msn.com/en-us/news/world/in-a-few-days-more-people-in-trump-s-orbit-tested-positive-for-coronavirus-than-in-all-of-taiwan/ar-BB19LxxU?utm_source=nextdraft&utm_medium=emailMore than a dozen White House officials have recently tested positive for the novel coronavirus, including some who are among the at least nine guests and two journalists who tested positive after they attended Amy Coney Barrett’s Sept. 26 Supreme Court nomination event in the Rose Garden. Trump announced his positive test early Friday, and was admitted to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center later that day. He returned Monday to the White House, where he removed his mask, despite doctors saying he was still contagious. Meanwhile, Taiwan — the self-ruled island home to 23 million people — reported just eight new cases in the past week.4. GG I’m waiting to work on the transcripts for the four episodes I’ve done and have two more in the works which I’m scheduled to finish up the week after next. The two subjects are on loneliness and brain health.5) MM P4A - Market Research Option- Topics and revenue (with Geraldine) -----Moving the first client to dynamic ad and promos. Moving MeetingsPodcast.com and Donald Don't Grab that pussy to test. Currently using Libsyn which the meetings podcast has been with since 2006. ---Opened ThePodcastguys.com to help mostly local podcasters. 6. GG Talking to Strangers in a Pandemic Meet Cart maven Emily Hope Dobkin, founder of a company called Betterish, brings people together by having them share their stories in online sessions. Emily Hope Dobkin is the creator of the “Meet Cart,” an actual cart that Dobkin once wheeled around Denver as a prop at the pop-up events and hands-on workshops that she presented at festivals and other events and venues. A one-time arts educator, last year Dobkin founded a company called Betterish, which brings diverse groups of strangers together to share their stories. “Everyone you meet,” she says, “has something valuable to teach us.”The pandemic put a halt to Dobkin’s mobile cart, but not to her efforts to connect strangers. “Amidst the pandemic, though we are finding new ways to connect with friends and family,” Dobkin said, “we’re not able to connect to new, fresh faces.” That matters, because research shows that our interactions with strangers create what sociologists call “fleeting intimacy,” and that people often are more open about their inner selves with strangers than they are with their friends and families.https://www.pcma.org/betterish-share-stories-covid-19-networking/?utm_source=pardot&utm_medium=newsletter&utm_campaign=careercenter&utm_term=organic6. GG I plan on getting chicks by the end of this month. Next week is a busy one and I need to get all the stuff sorted for the little tikes. I’ve had hens before but not chicks since I was a little tike so I am excited about that. They’ll need to live in my spare bedroom as they need warmth. I’ve signed up for a how to care for your chicks webinar. Bit concerned about the dogs’ reaction but I think they’ll get used to them.6. GG I have a prolific vine that is giving me loads of passionfruit and never was quite sure what to do with them, until now. They are a bit offputting to look at - a bit testicle-like, but they are scrumptious if you squeeze the juice from the seeds and use that to make vodka cocktails. And they are delicious with plain yogurt and honey; the fruit is a tad tart so the honey just takes that edge off. Do you still have your bees, by the way, Mike? (yes he does) 6. MM Good news-https://www.cnn.com/2020/10/05/weather/us-lightning-strike-deaths-trnd/index.html?utm_source=nextdraft&utm_medium=emailI know here in California the lightening complex has started some horrible fires- My family and I rode it out camping in my rooftop tent. In a year of increasingly bleak headlines, here's one uplifting piece of news: The US is on track to experience the fewest recorded deaths from lightning strikes in a single year.
