  2. Jenny & Paul Sell Out: EPISODE 29: BOOK CLUB & COFFEE TAWK

    This is the first edition of the Sellout's Book Club. But, unlike Oprah, we're not endorsing anyone or anything (that would make us real sellouts), just discussing a book that we both read: So Good They Can't Ignore You, by Cal Newport. It requires lots of coffee.

    With so many new, independent publishing platforms out there, from YouTube to podcasting, blogging to tumblr, why are people still so consumed with the standards of old media?

    When we set out to find an expert on the subject of traveling salesmen, we were surprised to find one who lives just up the road from us here in Chicago. Ron Solberg is the author of the highly recommended, foremost guide, The Whizbangs of Oohs and Aahs, which offers up hundreds of stories, anecdotes, quotes, thumbnail biographies, and even a play he wrote, based on a salesman’s diary found in the Newberry Library archives.

    The son of a Fuller Brush Man, Solberg worked in traveling sales for years, then moved on to marketing and advertising. These days, he’s a social studies and history teacher. Ron very graciously lent us a good deal of his time and expertise, and shared many stories about the history of traveling sales and the characters therein.
