It's Baton Rouge: Out to Lunch
The One Constant is Change

It's Baton Rouge: Out to Lunch

Play Episode Listen Later Nov 30, 2022 28:30


The one constant in business (and in life), is change. Like most platitudes, this one also is true. You might not think things as already established and mundane as breakfast cereal or everyday signage need to change. But they do. Companies that are able to adapt to change, even if they've been around a long time - or start ups that can come up with a better way to deliver an old favorite - are the businesses that survive and thrive. Let's kick off the conversation by talking about something as ubiquitous and seemingly plebeian as signage, with Steve Perrett.  Steve is President of Letterman's, a longtime locally owned company that started out in the 1940s as a print shop specializing in blueprints for architects and contractors - back when you actually had to walk into the store to pick up your prints. Today, Letterman's has become the state's largest, privately owned full-service reprographics company, offering signage and graphics printing, technical document printing, and professional document management. Letterman's still does blueprints, but it also does those large-format prints you see wrapping  buses and the exteriors of public buildings, as well as wayfinding signage, including ADA-compliant Way Finding signs. Steve's dad, Charles Perret, bought the company in the 1980s from its original founders, Mr. and Mrs. Carl Letterman. Today, Steve and his brother Chuck help their dad run the business and have expanded its footprint beyond Baton Rouge, to New Orleans, and Lake Charles. Steve (technically,  "Dr. Steve" actually) has been with the company since the 1990s. Among his several degrees from LSU are and MBA and a doctorate in human resource management. From Signs to Cereal Moving on to something seemingly even more unremarkable than signs: breakfast cereal! Does the world really need a new cereal? Because the one constant is changes, yes we do. Rich Simmerman is CEO and co-founder of Ceres Plant Protein Cereal, a startup that has created a breakfast cereal for people who subscribe to plant-based lifestyles. The cereal has 20 grams of plant-based protein and no sugar! It's made from naturally grown ingredients free of herbicides and chemicals. Its low-carb, diabetic friendly, keto friendly, vegan, plant based and - get this - it tastes good. Rich grew up like a lot of American kids – eating a lot of highly processed breakfast cereal loaded with sugar. He was overweight and unmotivated and wanted better for the next generations of kids, so he teamed up with his friend Branson Morgan and in the first 12 months since launching, won local pitch competitions and are scaling up manufacturing and distribution. Rich is a recent graduate of Loyola University and is currently working on a MBA at Tulane.  Out to Lunch is recorded live over lunch at Mansurs on the Boulevard.

We conclude #Noirvember 2022 with a look at Billy Wilder's Sunset Blvd. Released in 1950, the film tells the story of Joe Gillis (William Holden), a screenwriter who meets a faded star of yesteryear, Norma Desmond (Gloria Swanson). Gillis becomes a kept man while helping to fuel Norma's Desmond's delusion that she's returning to the silver screen in a lavish production of Salome.Agatha Luz (Cinemaspection) and Philip Marinello (The Substance Podcast) join Mike to discuss one of the best films ever made.

It's Baton Rouge: Out to Lunch

This is an encore presentation of Stephanie Riegel's conversation with fast food impresario Ted Kergan. We decided to unearth this episode and run it again because Mr. Kergan is one fascinating guy. In 2018 when we recorded this conversation, Ted was the largest franchisee of Sonic drive in restaurants in the state of Louisiana. He owned 58 Sonic locations in the central and southern part of the state. When you think about how much can go wrong day-to-day in any single workplace - especially in a fast food restaurant where people unexpectedly don't show up for shifts, machinery breaks, and, by the very nature of the business, customers demand immediate service and almost always know exactly what the product is supposed to taste like - owning 57 of these establishments sounds like an impossible task. Well, how about owning 150? That's the total number of Sonic restaurants Ted developed in his more than 40 year career. Ted Kergan is originally from Detroit. When he made his way down South, Ted was in Alexandria in 1977 when his brother talked him into joining him in the fast food biz and began his career as a managing partner in a Sonic restaurant. Ted eventually became a partner in the operation with his brother, the late Gary Kergan, who was murdered in 1984. Anyone who has been around Baton Rouge for a number of years know that Ted played a key role in solving the high profile crime and bringing Gary's killers to justice, though not until nearly 30 years had passed. His tale of detective tenacity became a book, My Brother's Keeper, which Ted helped write along with Chris Russo Blackwood. While pursuing justice in this case and in the process "consuming a fortune" tracing his brother's killers from New Orleans' French Quarter across the country to Las Vegas, Ted was growing his company. Ted Kergan and his Sonic empire have been recognized as one of the top franchise outlets in the country. You'll see why we pulled this show out of the archives: it's frank look into the life and business of one of Louisiana s most successful businessmen. This conversation was recorded live over lunch at Mansurs on the Boulevard in Baton Rouge. See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Derek and Maria Broaddus were excited to move in with their 3 children after the renovations were complete. But everything changed when Derek checked the mail at their new home and found a white card shaped envelope with thick handwriting addressed to “the new owner.” Inside, the envelope contained a letter signed by “The Watcher” and the Broaddus family's dream home quickly became a nightmare.

Sportsman's Paradise

It's Baton Rouge: Out to Lunch

Louisiana is known as a "sportsmen's paradise" because of the abundant fish and game that make for good hunting and fishing. And that's created something of a culture – one, admittedly shared by many states in the south and the west—that loves to hunt and fish. All sports require organization. And specialty equipment. Football, for example, is arranged by leagues - from high school through the NFL - and requires pads and helmets. Tennis is typically centered on clubs, and requires balls and racquets. Hunting and fishing trips are most often arranged informally by friends, and require rifles, rods and reels. Stephanie's guests on Out to Lunch today are involved with updating the organization of hunting and fishing trips, and the sale of equipment required for hunting. Namely, firearms. Laurie Lipsey Aaronson is President and CEO of Lipsey's, the Baton Rouge-based company that has grown to become the largest firearms distributor to licensed firearms retailers in the country. Lipsey's was founded in the early 1950s as a wholesale hunting and fishing distributor named S&S Sporting Goods. Laurie's father, Richard Lipsey, changed the name when he and members of his family acquired the business in the 1970s and began to expand it. Today, Lipsey's leads the firearms industry in the collaboration and distribution of exclusive firearms. Lipsey's also sells silencers, short barrel rifles and accessories. Laurie - who by the way was one of our first ever guests on Out to Lunch Baton Rouge - grew up learning the business from her dad and became chairwoman and CEO in 1993. She also leads another family business, Haspel, which created the original seersucker suit in New Orleans in 1909 and now offers a vibrant collection of men's clothing and accessories that Laurie has helped expand and diversify.  Logan Meaux is founder and CEO of Mallard Bay, a platform for sportsmen looking to book hunting and fishing trips with reputable charters anywhere in the U.S. The platform is like an Airbnb for sportsmen seeking accommodations with real-time availability, secure payments, quality assurance, and help with arranging lodging and meals along with their guided hunts. Logan is a recent LSU graduate, who was inspired to create the platform after having a particularly difficult time booking a hunting trip for his dad's birthday. Logan got together with two friends, both then students at LSU, Joel Moreau and Wyatt Mallet, to create the company. They then put together a team of business and computer science students and alumni to help with development. They launched in early 2022. In the short time since then, Mallard Bay has won a pitch competition, attracted local and national publicity and have their platform up and running and attracting users nationwide. This is all pretty impressive for a first gig right out of college, but then Logan comes by it naturally. His dad is Chris Meaux, founder of Lousiana's extraordinarily successful startup, Waitr, currently known as ASAP. Out to Lunch is recorded live over lunch at Mansurs on the Boulevard.

Our educational systems, from pre school through the graduate level, are in a constant process of evolution and, in many ways improvement, as pedagogy becomes more sophisticated and curricula become more specialized in response to an ever more complex world. And yet, in some ways we're not at all keeping up and our schools and universities are falling short of how they need to be preparing students to succeed in the 21st century. But those gaps can also create opportunities for entrepreneurs and others to step in and help address unmet needs.    Joshua Anderson is founder of Accelerant Education, a Baton Rouge-based company that develops software specifically designed to help high school students learn computer science and computer programming.

Three days after they closed on the house, their nightmare began. ‘The Watcher' would send them disturbing and threatening letters.  This is an excerpt from one of the letters received: 657 Boulevard is anxious for you to move in. It has been years and years since the young blood ruled the hallways of the house. Have you found all of the secrets it holds yet? Will the young blood play in the basement? Or are they too afraid to go down there alone. I would [be] very afraid if I were them. It is far away from the rest of the house. If you were upstairs you would never hear them scream. Will they sleep in the attic? Or will you all sleep on the second floor? Who has the bedrooms facing the street? I'll know as soon as you move in. It will help me to know who is in which bedroom. Then I can plan better. Join us for this episode of the True Crime Society Podcast as we discuss the true story behind ‘The Watcher'.

It's SPOOOOKY season, y'all! I've been saving this one up for our Halloween episode, and Mogab was thoroughly creeped out so job well done! It was June of 2014, and Derek and Maria Broaddus were living the American dream: they had just closed on their dream home at 657 Boulevard in Westfield, New Jersey for $1.4 million. They loved everything about this house, and couldn't wait to move in with their 3 young kids. But their dream became their nightmare when anonymous, threatening letters started showing up at the house, signed by someone calling themselves "The Watcher." The Watcher said it was their job - nay, their OBSESSION - to watch 657 Boulevard, just as their father did before them, and their grandfather before that. The Watcher referred to their kids as "young blood" and asked if they'd discovered what was hidden in the walls. And there was nothing the Broadduses could do to stop the letters from coming.

It's Baton Rouge: Out to Lunch

As many of our systems and institutions change these days, they challenge our long-held assumptions and make us rethink the way we do just about everything - even simple things like buying dish soap or sneakers. If you think there's nothing you don't know about online shopping by now, let me you clue you in on the next level, courtesy of Maryclaire Manard. Maryclaire is founder of Cluey Consumer, an online platform that enables internet and IRL shoppers to practice conscious consumerism by providing them with easy, accessible data that measures a company's impact on people, politics, and the planet. The platform is free, and lets users create customized platforms that include the values they prioritize and the brands they currently use. Cluey then lets a user know if their brands are misaligned with their own values, which, in theory could cause them to change their buying patterns, which, in turn, could force companies to change their behavior. Maryclaire launched Cluey in the summer of 2020, in the middle of the pandemic. Before that she graduated from Vanderbilt and spent much of the past decade working in media- and consulting. With the current generation's focus on ethically-produced and green, sustainable products, and businesses' awareness of the need to respond to market demands and be good corporate citizens, Cluey Consumer is the right tool at the right time. Out to Lunch is recorded live over lunch at Mansurs on the Boulevard. You can find photos from this show by Erik Otts at itsbatonrouge.laSee omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

The university is a place of learning, where scholars do research and impart their wisdom to students through lectures and courses. But with all those smart people walking around, sometimes great ideas emerge from the ivory towers of academia that are quite unrelated to one's field of study or area of expertise. And, like all happy accidents, sometimes those are the best ideas. Take, for example, the current experience of Professor Manos Chatzopoulos.   Manos is Assistant Professor of Physics and Astronomy at LSU. Like a lot of folks on the LSU campus, Professor Chatzopoulos got fed up trying to find a parking space. Where you and I might curse in frustration or even pray for a parking spot before we're late for our appointment, we're not astrophysicists who specialize in supercomputer simulations of supernovae and massive stellar evolution. Manos is. So what did he do? He came up with a parking app. Park Zen uses smart crowdsourcing to track and connect users with available parking in their vicinity— right down to the spot. It's like a Waze for parking. Manos is working on marketing Park Zen to organizations with heavy traffic and parking needs, like college campuses and shopping malls.  Manos is not only making life easier for his colleagues and students on the car-crowded LSU campus, he's also getting noticed in the entrepreneurial community. The Park Zen app took first place in the 2022 Baton Rouge Entrepreneur Week Pitch competition, which earned Manos $100,000. David Price is the creator of another driving-related invention: The Safety Pouch. The Safety Pouch is a high-visibility wallet that a driver can use to present their identification to police officers during traffic stops. The brilliance of the bright orange pouch is that it's easy for a driver in a traffic stop to grab off the sun visor, snap it on the open car window and keep their hands in plain sight. David brought the pouches to market during the ascendancy of the Black Lives Matter movement. The Safety Pouch is aimed at demonstrating cooperation and cutting down on dangerous, sometimes deadly, misunderstandings. Entrepreneurially, it was the right idea at the right time and it took off. In the fall of 2021, David successfully pitched Walmart on his product, which ordered 15,000 pouches and now sell it in 400 stores - while David was still a college student at Loyola!

Last week, a prominent chef was killed after being hit by a truck near Cleveland High School in Portland. Sarah Pliner was riding her bike on Powell Boulevard, a state-owned road with no bike lanes. In response to the fatality, Oregon Department of Transportation Director Kris Strickler issued a statement yesterday.“Powell Boulevard (U.S. 26) was originally established and designed as a highway to move freight and people through Portland quickly and efficiently,” he said. “Recent incidents on Powell, including a tragic death on Oct. 4, are evidence that this road cannot, and should not, function as a traditional highway anymore.”While some roads in the city remain under state control, others, like 82nd Avenue, are now under city ownership. Advocates have called for a similar transfer to take place on Powell Boulevard. We learn more about road safety from Chris Warner, the director of the Portland Bureau of Transportation. A community forum will be held on Oct. 20 at 6 p.m. at Cleveland High School. Representatives from PBOT, ODOT Portland Public Schools and TriMet will be there, according to ODOT.

As a homeless teenager writing college essays in her rusty Toyota Corolla, Emi Nietfeld was convinced that the Ivy League was the only escape from her dysfunctional childhood. But upward mobility required crafting the perfect resilience narrative. She had to prove that she was an “overcomer,” made stronger by all that she had endured. The truth was more complicated. Emi's mom was a charming hoarder who had her put on antipsychotics but believed in her daughter's brilliance—unlike the Minnesotan foster family who banned her “pornographic” art history flash cards (of Michelangelo's David). Emi's other parent vanished shortly after coming out as trans, a situation few understood in the mid-2000s. Her own past was filled with secrets: mental health struggles, Adderall addiction, and the unbecoming desperation of a teenager fending for herself. And though Emi would go on to graduate from Harvard and become a software engineer at Google, she found that success didn't necessarily mean safety. In this episode, Jess and Jess have a very honest conversation with Emi about what it actually means to overcome- and our obsession with "resilience porn" as a culture. As per usual, the conversation gets a little uncomfortable, as Jess B confronts her own reality: She makes a living sharing about her resilience. The bottom line is that we have to hold space for the complexity in all things- that is something everyone can agree on.Meet Emi:Emi Nietfeld is the author of Acceptance, a memoir from Penguin Press.

Allow me to welcome you to the neighborhood.” Derek and Maria Broaddus couldn't have been more excited to move into their dream house at 657 Boulevard in the well-to-do town of Westfield, New Jersey. But as the couple was preparing to settle into the $1.3-million house with their three children, they received this disturbing note in the mail. Signed only “The Watcher,” the letter had no return address. But whoever wrote it seemed to have been watching the Broadduses carefully.Before the family purchased “The Watcher House” in 2014, the Broadduses was a fairly average suburban family. Maria Broaddus had grown up in Westfield, New Jersey, just blocks away from the house at 657 Boulevard. On the other hand, Derek Broaddus had grown up in Maine in a working-class family. But from his humble beginnings, he had worked his way up to a position as a senior vice-president at a Manhattan insurance company.One night in June 2014, Derek Broaddus had just finished an evening of painting at his new home in Westfield, New Jersey, when he went outside to check the mail. A white, card-shaped envelope was addressed in thick, clunky handwriting to “The New Owner,” and the typed note inside began warmly:Dearest new neighbor at 657 Boulevard, Allow me to welcome you to the neighborhood.“Welcome to Murder By Nature, where we discuss True Crime, Mystery disappearances, and unsolved cases!

It's Baton Rouge: Out to Lunch

In today's hyper-competitive economy, even if you're a sharp business person you need a lot of tools to run a business - from everyday people-management HR skills to social media marketing, and that's not even touching the nuts and bolts of your business itself. To keep up and stay competitive, local business people are turning to specialized sources for help. Jody Mitchell is CEO of Directed Analytics, a Baton Rouge-based company focused on helping businesses with a range of services designed to generate ideas, develop systematic approaches, and come up with scalable solutions to help an organization succeed. Specifically, the firm uses technology and data to come up with new processes, procedures, and ways to measure productivity and performance in areas like accounting, workforce, IT, digital marketing and cybersecurity.
