Lobbying can have an outsized influence on which bills get passed and, sometimes more importantly, which ones do not. But many people don't know what lobbyists actually do. In this week's episode, Amy Bresnen and Steve Bresnen of Bresnen Associates explain to Todd Smith and Jody Sanders how their careers combine legislation, public policy, and advocacy in ways that most people don't consider. They share experiences both passing and preventing bills, and how lobbyists can help shape legislation to make sure that laws don't have bad results or unintended consequences. They also discuss the incredible workload involved in monitoring legislative bills during a session and how they interact with clients, legislators, and legislative staff during that process.Love the show?

Mark Mirchandani is back this week with cohost Bukola Ayodele. We’re talking with Eric Schmidt and Bruno Aziza about all the awesome new analytics, data, and AI launches from last week’s Google Cloud Next conference. Our guests start the show outlining the challenges clients face when storing, organizing, and analyzing data in the cloud. These needs have inspired Google solutions that focus on simplifying data management for customers. Next announcements like BigQuery Omni, which helps customers achieve full data visibility with cross-cloud analytics, and DataPlex, which facilitates data management at scale, will change the way companies think about their data. BigQuery integration with AppSheets and the new Cloud Looker LookML let customers build once and access from anywhere. The new Looker and Tableau integration revolutionizes the use of the semantic model in Tableau, allowing things like company-established data governance and the Looker Blocks ecosystem to pull into Tableau analysis. New Looker Blocks specifically targeted to the healthcare industry were also introduced at Next. We talk about the ML announcements including Vertex AI Workbench, a fully-managed service used for data exploration aimed at simplifying the workloads of data engineers. Serverless Spark on Google Cloud shares these goals by making performance tuning, scaling, infrastructure provisioning, and other tasks fully-managed. The new PostgreSQL interface for Spanner lets clients use tools already developed in PostgreSQL while leveraging the global scaling and other benefits of Spanner. Bruno and Eric share some favorite customer stories as we wrap up this week’s episode. Albertson’s, Renault, and others have interesting data journeys on Google Cloud and our listeners can learn more in the YouTube series hosted by Bruno.

There's an old adage that every entrepreneur claims that they coined but that Jeff Bezos, he of space, is widely credited as saying first: "Your brand is what people say about you when you're not in the room." What do people say about your podcast when you're not in the room? What do they tell friends about your podcast and how, if you aren't in that proverbial room, can you have any influence over what they say? By creating an experience. Brand, at its core, is just that: the promise of an experience that becomes synonymous with a company, person, product, service or place. Or a piece of media. Just like your podcast. As podcasters, we become focussed consistently on our content. And rightly so: without great content we have nothing. But too often we create superb content and assume that's enough and that because we have put blood, sweat and tears into that content, people should come listen and if they don't, it's them that's the problem. The hard truth, though, is that there's so much great content in the world right now that people can choose from and for us to shine and become the choice of content for our prospects, they have to know about us and feel like they're a part of what we do. That can sound really odd to a podcaster like you or me because we know our content is great and we know that we don't have lots of time to put into anything else except our content. But in order to thrive as a podcaster, you have to focus on experience. Consider any of your favourite movie, TV or literary franchises. They always have apathetic and passionate sides to their fandom. Many people consume content that they love yet don't feel strongly enough about that "world" to vocalise their opinions but some, like the Star Wars or MCU fanbases, are often vocal about their love or hate of a certain decision, storyline, character or product delivered by their beloved franchises. That passion is borne from brand: the promise of an experience and that passion overspills into noise which, in turn, attracts new fans or activates less vocal fans in becoming vocal. Once a brand reaches that level, it unlocks new "powers". Advocacy becomes natural and word-of-mouth becomes a huge factor in new people discovering what that brand has to offer. The more a brand delivers on its experiential promise, the more that flywheel spins and the bigger the brand grows. You see it often in the startup world where, suddenly, a new app or platform springs into the mass market from seemingly nowhere but actually, that platform has gone through the early adopter phase (where it ironed out its brand and product/market fit) through to the curious user stage (where more curious users buy-in, but don't identify as early adopters) and beyond to the establishment and scaling stages (which is where many of us first discover a new brand). Could we do the same for our podcast? Could we, over time, devise and refine a brand promise that targets our niche audience so specifically that we build advocacy and growth through simply doing what we promised to do? Of course! But producing content isn't enough. We have to be focussed on our brand but perhaps even more keenly, focussed on the experience that we want our brand to deliver for the long term. What do we want people to say about our brand when we aren't in the room? The challenge with brand-building is that you have to be so personally aligned to your brand that living it and embodying it doesn't feel forced - it has to feel natural and certainly not like a "job". A great example of this is how we run https://www.captivate.fm (Captivate), our podcast hosting and growth platform. Our brand experience is designed to be one that educates, supports and innovates and leads for our podcasters in a really inclusive way. If you look at the reviews that Captivate has or the reasons...

Everyone can make a difference in the life of someone living with this disease by urging elected officials in Washington DC to pass pending legislation that would directly help this community. Today, we're going to be talking about advocacy and why it's so important to alleviate patient burden through robust public policies that recognize both the financial toxicity of treating breast cancer and the systemic hurdles patients must pass through to access their care. Here today to share her personal story is Stephanie Walker. Stephanie is a registered nurse with close to 40 years of clinical practice experience with the last 15 years working in hospice and end of life care, when she received her MBC diagnosis in 2015. After health issues caused her to leave her work in 2018, she was faced with stark financial realities that MBC patients often encounter. Through it all, Stephanie learned to be her best advocate and is passionate about teaching other men and women with MBC how to do that too. Stephanie, welcome to the show.

As a total greenie in the IEP/504/educational advocacy realm, I was a bit surprised at the emotions that kept pounding in my heart. It was all familiar—the feeling of being a clueless parent in a new terrain as professionals used terms and procedures they assumed I understood. And of course, that familiar friend called grief. It was all there in my first ever eligibility meeting. But unlike the early days of the NICU when I had similar emotions, this time I was compassionate and understanding with myself. I now know there are learning curves with every new stage, and I will come out on top. In this episode, I speak to these emotions that came, as well as the happy ending to my first go at educational advocacy.

To kick off the series officially, we talk to past committee chairs, Robyn Lana and Dr. Lynn Brinckmeyer as they share institutional history on where the committee came from, why it exists, and how members can find what they need to advocate and collaborate in their programs.

I'm honored to share this special episode of the Mother's Quest Podcast. Thank you for showing up to this important conversation about two mothers and their quest for peace and reconciliation in Palestine and Israel. Thank you for choosing to press play. If ever there was a year demanding us to "show up" this has been one. From COVID to floods and fires and refugee crises...our consciousness has had a lot to hold. It can be all too easy to shut down. To throw up our hands. And to say "what can I do?" That question "what can I do?" is one I asked myself during the crisis that unfolded in Palestine and Israel In May of 2021. For days, watching the horrifying headlines, I felt powerless. Then several truths came to me and an intention to find a path to action which I shared in a FB post, like sending a wish to the universe. The very next day, the “guides” I was looking for appeared. In a conversation with my mother, I learned about the Parents Circle, an incredible organization of Palestinians and Israelis who have lost children or family members in the conflict, and instead of turning to revenge, come together to work toward peace and reconciliation. Soon after, I found myself recording a conversation with Layla Alsheikh, a Palestinian mother originally born in Jordan, who lost her son Qussay at the age of 6 months old. And Robi Damelin, an Israeli mother, originally from South Africa, who lost her adult son David while he was serving in the army. Although today's topic is especially heavy - one of loss and tremendous grief, Layla and Robi share their narratives with us for a specific purpose - to help us understand their experience and to support their efforts in bringing Palestinian and Israeli mothers in particular together to work toward change. Inspired by all they shared with me, the week after we recorded, I began to raise money toward a fund to help them bring together bereaved Palestinian and Israeli mothers of the Parents Circle. Along the way, I've been moved by so many mothers who have already contributed. Mothers like Jena Schwartz, who dedicates this episode with a beautiful poem she shares at the end of this conversation. Jena was the first to donate and her powerful words are an invitation to you to say “yes” to this cause. To date we have raised $5,000, half of the $10,000 goal I set. And we have more to go. Though the height of the crisis in May has receded from the headlines, violence continues in many forms, and the path for peace and reconciliation is needed more than ever. I ask you to listen with an open heart, to follow the links in the show notes to learn more, to contribute in any amount meaningful to you, and to amplify the voices of Layla, Robi and others like them, mothers closest to this conflict. They are a key to any path forward. In this episode we talk about: The experiences of two mothers Robi and Layla - one Israeli and one Palestianian - who lost children in the conflict and turned their grief into a quest for peace and reconciliation. The tremendous power of listening to bereaved mothers' stories. How Robi and Layla each got involved with The Parent's Circle, an organization of Palestinian and Israelis that brings bereaved parents and family members together in solidarity. How you can help support the Parent Circle and promote peace and reconciliation among Israeli and Palestinian families. The importance of not importing the conflict into our own countriesWhy we shouldn't position ourselves as Pro-Palestinian or Pro-Israeli but Pro- Peace. How Robi and Layla sustain themselves and find continued hope, even in their loss. Opportunities to get involved and how we can specifically support the mothers of the Parents Circle to come together. Poet Jena Schwartz' powerful poem “The Undefended Heart” and an invitation to contribute. This episode's challenge: Both Layla and Robi challenge us to join them in fighting for peace instead of violence in the following ways: Contribute to the fund to help them bring together Palestinian and Israeli mothers Invite representatives of the Parents Circles to your groups, synagogues, churches, mosques and organizations to share their story. Follow the work of the Parents Circle and participate in their educational and awareness-building opportunities About Layla: Layla Alsheikh was born and raised in Jordan. She had a peaceful and normal upbringing and graduated with a degree in accounting and business management. She eventually met her husband in Jordan 1999 and moved to Bethlehem, where her husband lived for the wedding. However, a few years later tragedy struck her life. In 2002, her 6 months old son, Qussay, became ill and Israeli soldiers prevented Layla from taking him to the hospital for more than five hours. Qussay soon died from the lack of timely treatment. Layla joined the Parents Circle in 2016. Following her son's death, she never thought of revenge, but rather has devoted her time and energy to ensuring a better, more peaceful future for her children. About Robi: Robi Damelin was originally from South Africa and came to Israel in 1967. She originally came to Israel as a volunteer after the “Six Day War”. Her real plan was to live in the states but after spending time in Israel she developed a love-hate relationship with the place. She eventually got married and had two kids here. Unfortunately, Robi's son, David, was killed by a Palestinian sniper in 2002 while guarding a checkpoint near a settlement during his army reserve service. She speaks to Israelis, Palestinians, and audiences all over the world to demand that reconciliation be a part of any peace agreement. Robi was named a 2015 Woman of Impact by Women in the World. Follow Robi: Website Twitter About the Parents Circle The Parents Circle – Families Forum is a joint Israeli-Palestinian organization made up of more than 600 bereaved families. Their common bond is that they have lost a close family member to the conflict. But instead of choosing revenge, they have chosen a path of reconciliation. American Friends of the Parents Circle – Families Forum shares the human side of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict with the American public in order to foster a peace and reconciliation process. The Parents Circle Policies: We work towards an end to violence and towards achieving an accepted political agreement. The members of the Parents Circle oppose the Occupation and believe that it is possible to end the conflict. They wish to influence the public and in turn, decision makers, to choose reconciliation and the path of peace over violence and war. Our goal is to create a framework of reconciliation between Israelis and Palestinians to support any political peace agreement. To prevent further bereavement and to avoid the use of bereavement for further violence and retribution.

As a mother herself, "The Undefended Heart" emerged as a prayer of sorts out of her own yearning for peace in the face of so much injustice and suffering in Israel/Palestine.

Special thanks to Shehla Sa Ni, Kris Zarnoch, Jen Fornal, and Bear Beat Productions for their help and care in editing this episode “Swirling in a sea of uncertainty My voice, tenuously found over the last few years, silent again I don't know enough, I tell myself But deep down, feel this to be untrue In the quiet of my late-night scrolling, searching for answers I never find, instead I reveal some truths within. We are all deeply connected The harm to one mother and her child is harm to every mother and every child, regardless of our differences A history of oppression and casting out can never justify more of the same Extremism in any form becomes a cancer Silence and doing nothing is a choice. A choice I cannot make. So I will remember I am not alone There are guides all around me And ways to make an impact that will reveal themselves If I just take the first step.” Julie Neale FB Post May 17, 2021
