  1. It’s Audio! I talk to Virginia Sole-Smith about weight, kids & pandemic - ParentData

    Listen now (19 min) | I’m really, really excited to try this out with the caveat that I am not, shall we say, a “professional podcaster.” But: I have been dying to get Virginia Sole-Smith to come talk to me about weight, kids, dieting and the pandemic and when she agreed I thought it would be a fun opportunity to try an audio episode. I’ve pulled out a few highlights below in text, but seriously try listening! Virginia is great.

  3. Building a DTC Brand From the Ground Up | Tracey Wallace of Doris Sleep by The Empowered Marketer | An ecommerce marketing podcast • A podcast on Anchor

    Launching a new brand from scratch is incredibly challenging. No one knows who you are; no one knows the value of your products; and you have to acquire an entirely new audience of buyers. But it can be done, and done well. 

    We’ve all seen the digitally native vertical brands appear out of nowhere and dominate the market. But what does it look like when one of those brands is just getting started? Tracey Wallace has been in the ecommerce world for nearly a decade, but she’s a first-time founder. She launched Doris Sleep, an ethically-made pillow company, just last year while still working at her previous role at Big Commerce. But she had years of experience working at Naturally Curly, an early content and commerce haircare company, as well as Shoptiques, a YCombinator fashion company. 

    Despite that, Doris Sleep was a whole new ballgame. However, Tracey explains that the business was really in her blood.

    Director Rian Johnson on ‘The Last Jedi’ and working with Carrie Fisher on her last film

    The force is strong with this week’s guest! Writer and director of "Star Wars: The Last Jedi," Rian Johnson joins us in the studio to talk about making the blockbuster and putting himself in the head of characters like Luke Skywalker to write a compelling story.

    Rian Johnson first broke through as a writer and director with 2005’s "Brick." It’s kind of a Coen brothers inspired film starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt. The film is set in an Orange County suburb, and it’s sort of a neo-noir where most of the main characters are high school students. The tone of the film is eerie and dark, the dialogue is quick and snappy, and most important of all — it’s a great detective story.

    Before "Brick," he was an editor for the creepy cult film "May," released in 2002. Other writing and directing credits include the sci-fi thriller "Looper," and the heist film comedy "The Brothers Bloom." He also directed a few of the most memorable Breaking Bad episodes.

    When Rian sat down with Jesse they spoke extensively about "The Last Jedi." Including what it was like working with Carrie Fisher on her last film, how he received the offer to direct "The Last Jedi,"

    and why he thought it was important that "Star Wars" be funny.

    This segment will include some spoilers to the film, but honestly, if you haven’t seen "The Last Jedi" by now you are practically asking for spoilers. You have been warned!

    Ian Parton & Ninja of The Go! Team on their new album ‘Semicircle’

    Jesse talks with Ian Parton and Ninja of The Go! Team. They’re the band that made the Bullseye theme song —

    "Huddle Formation."

    Formed in the year 2000 in Brighton, England, the band’s basically the brainchild of Ian Parton. He recorded a lot of the band’s first record in his parent’s kitchen and released it as "Thunder, Lightning, Strike." A classic Go! Team track has a lot of influences: hip hop, marching band music, noise rock, 70s soul. A lot of the songs are sample based but they still sound live and fresh. One of Ian’s longest running collaborators is the MC Ninja, born Nkechi Ka Egenamba. She’s sung and rapped on every Go! Team record.

    Ian tells Jesse about his creative process, and what it was like writing the smash hit "Roudou Sanka" by Japanese pop group Momoiro Clover Z. Ninja discusses what it was like when she first heard The Go! Team, and how she brings the music to life on stage.

    The Go! Team will be touring this Spring, and their new album "Semicircle" will be released on January 19. For more information visit their website.

    The Outshot: Sylvester

    Finally, for this week’s Outshot: singer-songwriter Sylvester. Jesse tells us about the life of a disco, rhythm and blues, and soul singer with a fabulous stage presence. "Mighty Real" was Sylvester’s signature hit. The song was about

    authenticity. It’s hard to imagine him bringing anything but realness.
