TakeawaysJK Lloyd, President and founder of Eruptr, estimated that 20% of hospitals in 2011 had used search engine marketing at all. Relative to other industries, hospitals have been slower to jump into digital advertising.Digital advertising grew 12.2% in 2020 and continues to grow, with ad spending projected to surpass the 200 billion mark in the upcoming year.Healthcare and pharma still only represent a small portion of the media mix across industries. In 2021, these segments represented just 7.2% of the display advertising pie and 6.4 % in 2021. While this statistic only accounts for display (as opposed to search and programmatic — still a relatively small piece of the pie.Digital advertising may not be as effective as marketers think. Almost half of all internet traffic is generated by bots, with one-third of advertising dollars wasted on ad click fraud. Global businesses are expected to lose $44 billion to ad fraud by 2022.Apple is making updates that limit marketers targeting capabilities by giving users more control over their preferences.Several large advertisers have made deep cuts in their digital ad budget — including Procter & Gamble (cut $200M), JPMorgan Chase (slashed ad reach by 99%) — and seen little or no measurable impact on their business. The multi-billion-dollar questionWith bot traffic and fraudulent activity inflating our metrics, marketers must ask themselves what they can do to reduce digital advertising waste.We need to recognize technology's limitations and adjust our strategies accordingly. For example, it's easy to overestimate a platform's targeting capabilities.Keep in mind where digital advertising should fit into your program's overall media mix, and get specific about the channel you use. For example, if the goal is awareness, video will probably deliver better results than display.If you are running an awareness campaign, however, question why you're running an awareness campaign in the first place. There are way too many campaigns where awareness is the goal and impressions are the KPI.Even Peloton started with product marketing advertising and then moved into brand advertising, video, and CTV. Evaluate your metricsImpressions and reach are not adequate measurements for campaign success because users often do not choose whether or not they see an ad. Similarly, impressions do not indicate any targeting accuracy. You could have a high number of impressions amongst a completely wrong audience.To effectively drive behavior change, our metrics need to reflect behavior change. Site visit rate, the ratio of page visits to ad impressions, can be a quality measure for consumer behavior change. Although this number may be lower than the engagement rate, it gives you a better view of consumer action resulting from your campaign.Ad platform monetization models are based on clicks, which includes accidental clicks. Accidental clicks may inflate metrics to make the campaign appear more successful than it was, ultimately driving more revenue for the ad platform.Retargeting can motivate consumer action, but it doesn't necessarily help marketers attribute consumer action to a campaign.For example, you may be served an ad for soft pretzels based on your interest in soft pretzels. After seeing the ad, if you buy a soft pretzel, the sale may be attributed to the campaign rather than your unrelated love for pretzels.This HBR article calls out the issue of correlation vs. causation and where marketers need to sharpen their skill sets.Driving consumer action requires marketers to understand consumer psychology, behavioral science, analytics, statistics, and more.By hiring experts in each of these domains and documenting learning objectives for your team, marketing leaders can bolster their team's capacity to deliver results.

What Podcasting Can Learn From Apple TV+

Streaming services like Apple TV+ are changing how television and movie content are created, consumed, and classified as successful or not. Changes an agile medium like podcasting can learn from. I've been watching a lot of Apple TV+ recently. And as I am wont to do, I'm relating a lot of what I see to podcasters like you and me. Specifically, I think there are four key lessons Apple TV+ can teach podcasters and podcasting in general. 1. Make a manageable amount of bets. You don't have to always have something new. You can instead learn a new genre, go deep in that genre, and then do it all over again.  Podcasters with a network get the most benefit here. But some of this lesson may be useful for single-show podcasters planning out new episodes. 2. Invest for the audience you have. You probably can't afford to drop $200M on a show that only gets a 37% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.  Call that a flop if you like. But it's a flop that seven million people really enjoy. Seven million people who want more shows just like that, please and thank you. 3. Implement diversification of creativity. Apple TV+ doesn't need every show to be a hit with their entire subscriber base, so they embrace and fund a wide swath of creativity.  Where else can you create content that serves a subset of your audience? Or a new audience? A new audience who can become a consumer of your podcast? 4. Play up and to your strengths. Content aside, the shows Apple TV+ makes are stunning to watch. Very on-brand for Apple. Podcasters like you who can consistently hit a quality note again and again with every episode or new show you make will, eventually, become known for that, building a loyal following over time. ----- Boostagram Corner Thanks to ReverendErik for the Paypal boost.

On today's Locked On Giants podcast, host Ben Kaspick answers questions from listeners about the San Francisco Giants' upcoming offseason. Ben discusses how the Giants have four openings in their starting rotation, and that will be their top priority. Kevin Gausman seems at least somewhat likely to return, given there is seemingly strong mutual interest. The Giants have had success revitalizing the careers of several starters, including Gausman, Drew Smyly, Anthony DeSclafani, and Alex Wood. All four were brought in on one-year deals, and hit the market in line for much bigger paydays following their time with the Giants. That should help the Giants sign more pitchers coming off down years, as they've established themselves as an extremely attractive destination. On the offensive side, Ben expects the Giants to re-sign Brandon Belt, who has been among the very best hitters in baseball since the start of the 2020 season. If Belt departs, that would leave a huge hole in the lineup, although the Giants could figure out first base with some combination of LaMonte Wade Jr., Tommy La Stella, Darin Ruf, and Wilmer Flores. Keep in mind, however, that there's likely to be a universal DH in baseball next year, so the Giants will have an additional offensive spot in the lineup to fill every day. That could create a better opportunity for younger players like Joey Bart. Signing other offensive players, even big fish at the top of the market, remains a distinct possibility as well. The Giants have only about $40M committed for 2022, after being near $200M in annual payroll not long ago. Watch Daily on YouTube http://bit.ly/LOGYouTube Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors!

[Episode theme]In this episode, we talk about the latest Marvel blockbuster, “Shang-Chi: legend of the ten rings.” At the time of publishing, Shang-Chi has become the first pandemic film to gross over $200M at the box office. We dive deep into what we love and appreciate about this film — the various styles of fight scenes, Tony Leung, care paid to language and dialect. And where we find the movie to be falling short — the ambiguity of Taluo, the tired narratives when it comes to womanhood, motherhood, and a woman's role in the marriage. [Timecode]1:19 — Guest intro and first impressions 8:00 — How Marvel creates an “anti-hero” the audience loves (Wenwu) 15: 00 — Are the Chinese dialogue and dialects in this film legit?26: 24 — The references of Wuxia style in this film, and a smart appropriating of Chinese fantasy elements  32: 21 — Awkwafina is the first female Asian character whose main use is to be a getaway driver (we dig) 34: 11 — Is the story of Taluo holding up under scrutiny? What are the weaknesses of world-building in this film, when compared with “Black Panther”? Do we need this type of ambiguity in geography and history? Do we need an Asian “Wakanda”? 49: 00 — Marvel commoditized the identity movement of Asian Americans but did not dig deep into their stories in this film 51: 20 — The movie's polite but ultimately inadequate nod to feminism 56: 16 — Are we tired of the same old narrative of a woman sacrificing herself for a relationship 59: 00 — As a part of the Chinese audience, how should we understand cultural creations that belong to Chinese Americans? [Guest introduction] Frankie: Chinese American illustrator  Kao: Host of the podcast “Overcooked” https://overcooked.typlog.io/ [Audio editor]Joshua Odgen-Davis[Be our sponsor]Please consider supporting us on Patreon (in USD, suitable for listeners who live in the U.S.): https://www.patreon.com/loudmurmurs. Please consider supporting us on Patreon (in RMB):https://afdian.net/p/e0a54e82ebd111e9bd2d52540025c377【Links & resources】越烤越糊https://overcooked.typlog.io/清醒梦播客救母那集https://hekukaixin.com/2021/05/22/%e6%b8%85%e9%86%92%e6%a2%a6-e18%ef%bd%9c%e4%b8%ad%e5%9b%bd%e6%96%87%e5%8c%96%e7%9a%84%e6%95%91%e6%af%8d%e4%bc%a0%e8%af%b4/【Business collab】Please reach out to us at loudmurmursfm@gmail.com for any business inquiries. 【Listen to LMM】Find Loud Murmurs in the iTunes podcast store, Google Play, Spotify, and wherever you listen to podcasts (e.g. Pocket Casts, Overcast)!

Episode #444:  How to Crush Your Fears True Success and Growth is created outside your comfort zone.   I love this statement because it reminds me to focus on the opportunities that are presented to me whenever a challenge or fear is put in my path.  I have experienced time and time again the success and fulfillment that has come into my life by facing my fears and “leaning into what I fear most”. There has never been a better time to learn and act on this principle than now. Our business, social, and economic environment is placing many fears in our path and I believe we can use this as an opportunity to Learn more about Ourselves, Grow our Success, and Create an Amazing Life of Fulfillment and Prosperity. But it will require some Bold, Courageous, and Intentional Actions on our part. I hope this message might inspire you to do just that… The Time I Walked Away from $250k. There have been many times that I have had to face my fears in difficult situations and life events. However, I can think of one that really pushed me to a new level.   I was twenty-nine years old and had built a successful sales team for a leading online stock education company.  I was doing very well financially and had built a team consistently generating me over $250k per year.  More importantly, I was married and had 5 kids at the time. I had built a relationship with an individual that owned a small events company doing about $20M per year in revenue with about 20 employees. This individual had presented me with the opportunity to walk away from my “cush” “job” and become the CEO of his company.  I'm not sure what he saw in me, and I certainly did not feel qualified for the position.  But I was faced with the challenge or opportunity to walk away from an already built $250k per year to earn a commission (only on profit) of helping him to grow his company.   I saw the potential, but it was a thought that literally terrified me.  I had worked very hard to create the level of success I had created (from the ground up) and knew that it would require some serious “heavy lifting” to jump ship and move to the next level with this offer.  I spent many long, stressful, and thoughtful days considering the offer. I knew that I wanted to go to the next level.  The opportunity appeared to be sound, but I would give up a solid (bird in the hand) income for an upside that was not guaranteed in any way.  To say I was scared to make the move would be an understatement.  But ultimately, I chose to make the move and I have never looked back.  In hindsight, that move is what gave me an incredible amount of experience, success, relationships, and life skills.  It was a bumpy ride (which we can cover at another time), but we were able to grow the company to over $200M in net collected revenue with over 300 employees in 5 short years.  This was a perfect example of leaning into my Fear in order to Grow and Create Success. What do you Fear Most? The question I have for you is, “What is it that you fear right now in your professional life?”  Is there an opportunity that you have been considering or presented with?  Is there a skill that you have put off learning or developing? Is there a personal passion that you have wanted to start building a business around?  Are there investing opportunities that you don't feel qualified to start learning and doing?  Maybe you have some current challenges or problems in your life or business that you simply don't feel qualified to deal with. Maybe you have a relationship or a family matter that you can't seem to get up the courage to start working on. Regardless of what the fear is that is present in your life, I can promise you that your “Greatest Accomplishments”…Your Best Life…is waiting just beyond that challenge or fear. See, I believe that your Fear is there for a reason that will benefit you.  Maybe it's your gut telling you that you need to address it. Maybe it's your subconscious mind identifying to you an area that you can learn and grow from. Don't get me wrong, I believe that fears can be real (in life and especially in our minds), but I also believe most FEAR is something we create to avoid problems in our lives…simply put it is “false events appearing real.”  Maybe another way to look at FEAR is to see it as an opportunity, or a Highlighted area for Growth rather than a red flag to run away from. Either way, you were meant to do great things and can only accomplish your best life by addressing the roadblocks holding you back from Greatness. Why Should you START with Fear? What can we hope to gain from facing our fears and How do we actually start Crushing those fears?… Here are just a few (of many) reasons to Face Your Fears: Gateway to Results- facing your fears can give you valuable experience that you can use to grow, build, and learn strategies to execute at a higher level in the future. Remember that even failure carries with it knowledge that will improve your skills moving forward. Personal Growth- the fastest way to grow is to stretch yourself.  This will most certainly happen when you face your fears.  You learn new ways to accomplish your goals, and you are forced to adapt to a new environment. Increased Fulfillment- personal growth is one of the most important ways to feel a greater amount of fulfillment and passion in your life.  Truly living only happens when we are growing personally and professionally.  Facing your fears is an amazing way to do this. Build Confidence & Belief- As we face our fears, we build confidence and belief in our own abilities to handle life and the amount of uncertainty we have in life.  The experience that comes from dealing with fear creates new beliefs that we can handle any situation in life, and this will create more confidence in our ability to stop dealing with even greater challenges in the future. I can go on and on about the positive benefits that come with facing your fears.  I also know that there can be difficult, emotional, and negative experiences that come with facing our fears.  Rejection, Failure, and Setbacks can also come with facing your fears, but remember this… Anything that you can Learn from a Situation can be turned into a Positive if you just Make the Decision that it will help you Grow and do better in the Future. How to Start Crushing Your Fear? Let's talk about how you can start Crushing Your Fears and some ideas I have for helping you Take Action… I've learned all kinds of ways to deal with fear, challenges and struggles in my life.  I wrote down a few of the Empowering Thoughts, Techniques, and Disciplines that I have learned and used over the years, and here are a few of the best ideas I can give you: Say Yes, then Figure it Out- Most every 7-Figure mentor that I know has adopted the idea that they will act on opportunity and figure it out along the way.  You don't need to know everything to take action. Good is Good Enough- Taking action on your dreams, desires and opportunities is good enough.  Don't wait for confidence to tackle your fears.  Confidence comes after you push through your fears. Focus Your Energy- When you are leaning into fear, you must create space to focus your time, energy, and talent so you can develop the skills needed to handle the challenge.  Don't multitask when facing your fears. Surrounding yourself with Positive- Facing fears can be scary, but you can build up your confidence, belief, and abilities by surrounding yourself with others that have already faced similar fears.  They can help you benefit from belief transference, positive influence, and support along the way. Eliminate Distractions- The best way to deal with your fears is to block out some time and hit them head on. Don't allow distractions, easy ways out, and others to distract you from your objective and focus on conquering your fears. Do Less Not More- The key to handling your fears is not to take everything on all at once.  Don't feel you need to do it all.  Just simply take the first step.  Most times, the answers, details, and solutions come along the way.  The path to dealing with your fears will most of the time reveal the solutions you are looking for along the way. Ultimately, there is no magic pill or easy way to get through facing your fears. You are the only one equipped to handle your fears.  You are the only that can face them.  But, if you will remember and adopt the idea that “Everything happens for a reason and that reason is there to Benefit me”, then your perspective will drive your experience.  True or not, that will empower you to create an experience of growth and learning rather than failure, disappointment, and struggle. WARNING:  Don't Let This Happen! I have a thought that came to me, and it is a simple (but serious) word of caution or warning. Sometimes we fail to recognize that the opportunity or situation “already present in our life” is what we fear dealing with the most.  As a result, we (as entrepreneurs, investors, or just humans) use new opportunities as excuses to “Not deal with Fear we currently have”.  Let me give you an example.  So many times, I have seen entrepreneurs or individuals chase shiny objects (new opportunities) in order to find a “way out” of working hard and dealing with the struggles they may be currently facing. You cannot move from opportunity to opportunity thinking you are “operating outside your comfort zone” or facing new challenges, when you are truthful just avoiding finding solutions to your current situation.  Learn to face your fears regardless of where they are present in your life. You Can Do It!! I know we all have greatness inside of us.  I know that we are given challenges for a reason and that reason is to grow and develop the best versions of ourselves.  This is not a destination driven objective.  It is a path-based journey. We learn, grow, and develop along the way for our entire lives. When you fall in love with the process…the path…then you release your need for the end result.  When you stop fixating on the result, you can start to really enjoy the process more.   You are on a path that rewards the person willing to Lean into their Fears with the Benefit of Prosperity, Personal Growth, and Happiness.  By avoiding your fears you are left with disappointment, regret, and failure.  After all, you will miss 100% of the shots you don't take. You will Benefit from 100% of the shots you take (regardless of scoring points) if you Learn something from every shot. Wayne Dyer said that as we all look back on the Tapestry of our Lives we will gain a better perspective and the Meaning and Purpose of our Challenges become more clear.

On today's Locked On Giants podcast, host Ben Kaspick answers listeners' questions about the state of the San Francisco Giants. Among the questions asked and answered are: Do you think Kris Bryant will ultimately re-sign with the Giants? Is he worth a $200M+ contract? With lots of one-year deals, some with options and others without them, how much roster turnover do you think we'll have next season? Specifically which players do you think will come back? Which players do you think may choose to sign elsewhere? Do you see Johnny Cueto making the fourth starter spot and Alex Wood taking the long relief spot for the playoffs? Seems like there is one spot available for Jay Jackson, Jose Quintana, Sammy Long and Cueto with Logan Webb, Kevin Gausman, Anthony DeSclafani, Alex Wood, Jake McGee, Tyler Rogers Jarlin García, Dominic Leone, Tony Watson Zack Littell, José Álvarez, Camilo Doval seeming like locks. Rank the following from most likely to least likely as to the way Joey Bart ultimately departs from the San Francisco Giants organization: a. Release/DFA'd b. Free agency (major league, minor league, other league, i.e. KBO) c. Trade of any form d. Retirement from baseball Does Steven Duggar beat out Alex Dickerson for a postseason spot?

Nothing lights me up more than a meaty conversation with a successful entrepreneur. I just bagged the elephant (You can thank me later.) Godard Abel is one of the most successful SaaS entrepreneurs you'll meet. And G2 is his Unicorn baby. After wrapping his studies at Stanford MBA and MIT Engineering, Godard was Co-Founder & CEO of BigMachines, a pioneer of the Configure, Price, Quote software category. He scaled the business from scratch to $50M revenues & 300 people, before its acquisition by Oracle. As CEO of SteelBrick, the leading Quote-to-Cash software platform, he built the team from 5 to 200 people, before its acquisition by Salesforce. And currently, Godard is Co-Founder & CEO of G2, which makes B2B tech buying easy by connecting buyers to vendors. It's “Yelp for Business Software & Services” with 1 million customer reviews & real-time ratings. 5 million tech buyers visit each month. And he's onto something big… G2 has raised over $200M from top investors: Accel, Chicago Ventures, Emergence, High Alpha, Hyde Park Venture Partners, IVP, Permira, Pritzker Group Venture Capital, Salesforce Ventures, HubSpot Ventures. I was curious to understand how Godard makes it look so easy (It's not.) He attributes not some… but ALL… of his success to “hiring & nurturing incredible people.” In this 20-minute conversation, he reveals step-by-step how to build your Unicorn team.

Kathleen opens the show drinking a Natty Daddy Lemonade Seltzer, which she doesn't like because she enjoys a beer FAR more than seltzers ;-) She discusses the current state of her St. Louis Cardinals and Lewis Black's terrible Baltimore Orioles, and the sheer awesomeness of Tony LaRussa as a coach and GM. Kathleen then talks about her Fantasy Football league, and her repeat move to draft Tom Brady as her starting quarterback. TERMITE SHOUTOUTS: Kathleen gives thanks to the Termites who leave notes at shows and send mail to her PO Box. She begins by thanking Termite Cheryl from Oregon for the Baby Shoe Madigan Christmas ornament and “Calm Down Karen” t-shirt, and Termite sisters Steph & Jen from Edmonton who sent a box of Canadian fun that Kathleen samples as part of her junk food tasting session. “GOOD BAD FOOD”: In her quest for new and delicious not-so-nutritious junk food AND in continuing her search for the best Ranch, Kathleen samples a few Canadian treats from Termite sisters Steph & Jen, beginning with Hawkins Cheezies, which is one of her all-time favorite snacks. She then tastes President's Choice Cheesy Garlic Bread rippled chips, which are a little too “garlicky” for her preference. She finishes her tasting with Keg Steakhouse Ranch dressing, which she LOVES and rates in her top 3 of all Ranches tasted so far.UPDATE ON KATHLEEN'S QUEEN'S COURT: Kathleen provides an update on the Queens, reporting that Queen Stevie Nicks has recorded a duet with Elton John called “Stolen Car” as part of his “Lockdown Sessions” album. Queen Tanya has canceled the remainder of her 2021 Tour dates, stating that she needs to concentrate on rehabilitating her hip after her recent surgery. ELIZABETH HOLMES JURY SELECTION UNDERWAY: In continuing with her updates on the Elizabeth Holmes' Theranos trial, Kathleen provides an update on how the jury selection process is going leading up to the commencement of the trial. QAnon SHAMAN PLEA DEAL: Kathleen laughs while reading an update on the infamous “QAnon Shaman” Jacob Chansley, who was originally charged with six federal crimes pertaining to the US Capitol insurrection. He plead guilty to one of the most serious charges and could face a maximum of 20 years in prison, though his lack of a criminal record means he'll likely receive much less. As part of the plea agreement, Chansley agreed to pay $2,000 in restitution for damage to the Capitol and could also face a fine of up to $250,000.BEYONCE'S BLOOD DIAMOND: Kathleen reads an article surrounding the controversy surrounding Beyoncé and Jay-Z after she made history posing alongside a rare art piece from the late, great artist Jean-Michel Basquiat as the first Black woman to wear an iconic Tiffany & Co. Yellow Diamond. After critics bashed the Beyonce for wearing a ‘blood diamond,' a source stated that “Beyonce is aware of the criticism and is disappointed and angry that she wasn't made aware of questions about its history.” In an effort to pivot the narrative, she appears to be focused on promoting the $2,064,600 that Tiffany has pledged toward internship and scholarship programs for historically Black colleges and universities.BRITNEY'S CONSERVATORSHIP ENDS: Kathleen is thrilled to read that after months of following the #FreeBritney movement, her conservatorship with her father has finally ended. Father Jamie Spears has served as conservator of his daughter's estate since it was established in 2009 and recently stated in a court filing that he intends to step down as conservator. Kathleen applauds the efforts of “the children” who have supported Britney, and encourages them to celebrate ☺ABBA'S GREATEST COMEBACK: As is the case with many music lovers, Kathleen LOVES ABBA's music and is absolutely thrilled to read an article announcing that nearly four decades after disbanding and vowing never to get back together, the Swedish superstars are making a musical comeback with a new album and a London show featuring their performances captured by digital avatars. The group, all in their seventies, described how they were photographed in leotards to create the avatars for a new show called “ABBA Voyage” which will play at a theatre being built close to the presentation venue in east London's Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. The show will feature 22 songs, mostly the group's classic hits, and last 90 mins. Kathleen CANNOT wait to buy tickets….WENDY'S UPGRADES FRENCH FRIES: Kathleen agrees that fast-food French fries need to be upgraded, and still hasn't gotten over McDonald's move to change its iconic fry recipe back in 1992. She's excited to hear that Wendy's has announced that the chain is upgrading its French fries in mid-September 2021, keeping more skin on the potato in order to “drive more flavor.” Stay tuned for a tasting from Mama T, Termites.WALLY THE WALRUS GETS HIS OWN BOAT: Kathleen laughs out loud reading an article out of Ireland where a massive Arctic walrus whom locals refer to as “Wally” was first spotted in March. Since then, he has traveled over 2,485 miles and has been spotted in France, Spain, and across the U.K. According to the Irish Whale and Dolphin Group (IWDG), due to his colossal weight, Wally has been sinking one or two boats in every harbor he enters when he attempts to climb on watercraft anytime he gets tired from swimming. In an effort to offer assistance, the Irish have built Wally his own pontoon boat which will remain in a harbor in West Cork. NAZI ARTIFACTS FOUND STASHED IN GERMAN HOUSE: Kathleen reads an article detailing a cache of Nazi artifacts that have been found in the wall of a German house. Found by a schoolteacher, the trove was most likely hidden as U.S. troops took the city of Hagen in April 1945.STONEHENGE IS INDESTRUCTIBLE: Kathleen is fascinated with history and can't believe the results of a recent scientific analysis from a piece of England's Stonehenge monument. The core sample is helping experts better understand the makeup of the mysterious prehistoric structure, and how the stone's geochemical composition may have made it uniquely well-equipped to stand the test of time. The structure is made from 99.7 percent quartz crystals making the stones are practically indestructible, according to a new study published in the journal Plos One.100-YEAR-OLD NAZI ON TRIAL FOR HATE CRIMES: Kathleen believes in karma and consequence, and reiterates these sentiments when reading an article about a 100-year-old former guard at the Sachsenhausen Nazi concentration camp near Berlin. The guard will face trial this Fall, 76 years after the end of the Second World War.ITALIAN VILLAS FOR A EURO: Kathleen reads an article about Italy's ongoing clearance sale of €1 houses that have been historically centered around rural areas. However, a town in Rome's Latium region has joined the efforts with stricter parameters for those applying to purchase including timelines to complete any renovations and preference going to those who wish to reside in the area on a longer-term basis. THE RICHEST WOMEN IN THE WORLD: Kathleen is fascinated reading an article listing Forbes' richest women in the world, and by what means they attained their wealth. The group founded their wealth in everything from construction to technology, including the inventor of the Bumble dating app (which causes Kathleen to laugh when telling the story of her friend Ron White's “Bumble fumble.”) She is particularly excited to discuss the philanthropic endeavors of the women who currently holds the status of the world's wealthiest female: Françoise Bettencourt Meyers of the L'Oreal brand, who was raised as a strict Catholic and has pledged over €200M to restore Notre Dame cathedral in Paris after it was damaged in a horrible fire in 2019. Kathleen loves the city of Paris and tells listeners about her high school French exchange trip when she spent 6 weeks in the French countryside smoking cigarettes with her friend Marie Paul. THE LONGEST EMBRACE: Kathleen closes the Pubcast with a story of true love, reading an article from China where archaeologists have discovered two ancient skeletons holding each other with their arms wrapped around the other's waist and the woman pressed up against the man's shoulders. In studying the remains, historians feel that the remains likely belonged to a man and woman from the Northern Wei period – 1,500 years ago, when Buddhism was heightening. WHAT TO WATCH THIS WEEK: Kathleen recommends watching the ABBA documentary “When All Is Said And Done” “The White Lotus” with Connie Britton on HBO Max, and “The Defeated” on Netflix.

Can art and happiness coexist? Is great art only forged through pain? And is suffering integral to creativity?These are just a few of the many questions explored in today's colorful excavation of David Choe's fascinating soul.I suspect many of you are already well familiar with this human and his art. Perhaps you watched his VICE special, Thumbs Up. You've seen him alongside the late Anthony Bourdain in Parts Unknown or the recent documentary Roadrunner. He's also appeared on Howard Stern, Joe Rogan, and David Chang's podcast.But for those unfamiliar, David is an extraordinarily unique and talented street artist, fine artist, performance artist, and muralist. He's also a musician, journalist, writer, producer, fellow podcast host, a self-proclaimed liar, thief, altruistic narcissist, vagabond, and recovering sex and gambling addict. In other words, he's a highly flawed human—just like the rest of us.Most of the conversations that swirl around David tend to revolve around his wealth (he took stock instead of cash for murals he painted on the walls of Facebook that would later enrich him to the tune of $200M) and the countless wild yarns he spins about his many well-documented adventures, escapades, and public scandals.Today we travel beyond the David of yore to meet a very different man. An artist and human who has grappled with his demons and emerged more complete. Grounded. And grateful.What interests me most about David has nothing to do with his wealth, fame or copious talent. Instead it's his honesty—a rare and raw vulnerability that is both sweet and endearing. A reflection of his devotion to self-growth, the David of today is refreshingly open about his journey and failures. The result is a deeply empathetic, sensitive, caring, and thoughtful man in search of personal truth and connection—all of which is writ large and beautifully captured in his latest utterly unique creation, The Choe Show on FX.Today's conversation centers on mental health, childhood trauma, and the many perils of addiction. It's about identity, sobriety, creativity, and more broadly, the journey to self-acceptance and self-love.David is one of the few brave individuals who can shine a flashlight on the darkest places of his soul—a rare authenticity that somehow gives everyone else the green light to do the same.To read more click here. You can also watch listen to our exchange on YouTube. And as always, the podcast streams wild and free on Apple Podcasts and Spotify.Note: If this is your first rendezvous with David, this is not one for the kiddo's ears. Explicits are dropped. You have been forewarned.I adore this conversation. It's nothing short of magical, and I hope you find it helpful especially if you're one of the many who are struggling or suffering right now.Peace + Plants,Listen, Watch & SubscribeApple Podcasts | YouTube | Spotify | Stitcher | Google PodcastsThanks to this week's sponsors:Athletic Greens: 75 whole food sourced ingredients designed to optimize 5 key areas of health, Athletic Greens is the delicious daily habit that sets you up for a healthy future.
