  1. Become a Successful Maker Without Destroying Yourself (FS223)

    No matter what kind of business you’re thinking of starting, you have got to solve a REAL problem with a REAL solution.

    We tear apart this idea in depth with Dan and Tom from [Studio Neat], makers of fine, modern physical products.

    They’ve just launched a brand new (and very unique) [notebook on Kickstarter], and it hit it’s goal in just a few hours.

    So, naturally, we wanted to ask them about what they’ve learned about business in their several years creating successful products from scratch.

    Here’s three pieces of advice from them good for all of us, no matter the kind of business we’re running:

  2. Jon Favreau and Rick Wilson on bad bills and worse messaging

    The Affordable Care Act has polled poorly for years — but Republicans’ health bill is polling even worse.

    What does it mean for the GOP to have such an unpopular bill, and how can progressives take advantage of it? On this PULSE CHECK, you’ll hear from two experts in political messaging and strategy.

    First, Jon Favreau, who was the chief speechwriter for President Obama and is a cofounder of Crooked Media, a new liberal political media network, sits down with POLITICO’s Dan Diamond to talk about setting Affordable Care Act strategy, Republicans’ struggles to craft a health bill of their own, and how his views on media have changed since starting a media company. (Starts at the 1:50 mark.)

    Then after the break, Rick Wilson, a Republican strategist who helped attack the Affordable Care Act, explains why Obamacare’s pre-existing conditions protections are the “nuclear bomb” against critics of the law, why he’s no fan of Republicans’ current health care strategy, and how the GOP is risking the party’s political future by pushing a bad bill. (Starts at the 38:50 mark.)

  9. Blunt Force Truth The Myth of Male Privilege ­– and Other News – Episode 243 Play in new window | Download (Duration: 57:09 — 52.3MB)Subscribe: iTunes | Android | RSSOn this episode of Blunt Force Truth, Chuck Woolery and Mark Young cover the most popular subjects the left is attacking without evidence. They talk about fake news that’s being disseminated, as well as the real news that the mainstream media won’t report on because it contradicts the narrative to which they’re clinging.Some of those lines being force-fed to America is that women make less than men, and men (white men, especially) have “male privilege.” Mark breaks down the truth of the matter with statistics and logic. They confront reality vs. perception about how men and women are treated differently, and they explain how the myth fits into the left’s victimhood mentality.

  10. The One About Pens – Rands in Repose

    I’ve started a podcast.

    Each episode, I find a smart person somewhere on the planet, and we talk about The Important Thing. I suspect we’re going to wander a bit, but wandering is usually the best part.

    I’m just delighted to kick off the first episode1 with Tiff Arment where The Important Thing is pens2. In this first episode, we talk pen origin stories, we dive deep on fountain pens, and, uh, we talk video games, too.

    Enjoy it now or download for later. Here’s a handy feed that I’m submitting to all the things.

    Wow. There are a lot of moving parts in setting up a podcast. This is a beta release and I continue to tinker with all the things. Special thanks to Marco Arment for saving my ass no less than three times during this process. I’m working on getting The Important Thing feed posted to all the usual places. If you’d like to discuss this podcast, please join the #theimportantthing channel on the Rands Leadership Slack and let’s chat. ↩

    Tiff provided this amazing shot of the pens we discuss. ↩
