Hercule Poirot - Agatha Christie's brilliant Belgian sleuth - is back on the big screen in A Haunting in Venice. To celebrate his return, we'll hear three old time radio adventures of Poirot starring Harold Huber as the detective. We'll hear "Death in the Golden Gate" (originally aired on Mutual on May 17, 1945), "The Adventure of the Money Mad Ghoul" (originally aired on Mutual on September 13, 1945) and the series' audition episode "The Case of the Roving Corpse."
On Saturday, September 14th, 1957 The Grand Ole Opry signed on from WSM and the Ryman Auditorium. WSM is a fifty-thousand-watt clear channel station located in Nashville, Tennessee. Founded by the National Life and Accident Insurance Company, the station's call sign stands for We Shield Millions. WSM first signed on October 5th, 1925. The next month on November 28th, The WSM Barn Dance took to the air for the first time. On December 10th, 1927, the program's host, "Judge" George D. Hay referred to the show for the first time, as The Grand Ole Opry. The Opry began running coast-to-coast on Saturday evenings in 1939. The show moved to the Ryman Auditorium in 1943. As it developed in importance, so did the city of Nashville, which became America's country music capital. By 1954, WSM was considered the outstanding music station in the country. That October 2nd a teenage Elvis Presley would have his only Opry performance. ___________ Meet The Press grew out of a partnership between Martha Rountree and Lawrence Spivak. Rountree, a freelance writer, broke into radio in the late 1930s. She created the panel show Leave It to the Girls in 1945, before teaming with American Mercury editor Lawrence Spivak, to produce a radio show promoting his magazine. Spivak would be the permanent panelist representing the press. They would invite top newsmakers to be put on the spot, “without preparation or oratory,” and thus “find out what they stand for.” The show debuted on October 5th, 1945 over Mutual Broadcasting. Meet the Press was soon making its own headlines. The panelists purposely pitted two editors known for their opposition to the guest's viewpoint, with one middle-of-the-road type, and Spivak. In 1947 while still airing over Mutual, a TV version began airing on NBC. The radio version aired over Mutual for five years before going off the air and moving to NBC in May of 1952. On September 15th, 1957 the guest was Archbishop Makarios of Cyprus. The discussion regarded Cyprus' quest for independence. The population was made up of both Greeks and Turkish Cypriots and had been under British rule since 1878. Greeks wanted British removal and a union with Greece. The Archbishop was one of the loudest voices in this quest. Makarios, who was in favor of bombing attacks that had occurred against government offices in 1955, was exiled in 1956, and by 1957 most leaders in the National Organization Of Cypriot Fighters' had been killed or captured. So, they turned to organizing school children riots, and killing the families of police and military personnel. The rebellion continued throughout 1958, even after Makarios had abandoned his initial demands. They finally ended in February 1959 when agreement was reached for Cyprus to become an independent republic. The radio version of Meet The Press aired until July 27th, 1986. The TV version is still being seen.

Nonprofit leaders, how are you setting up your new leaders for success? What strategies do you have in place to ensure they come into the organization strong? And arguably more importantly, how are you ensuring your new leaders keep a good momentum without burning out? In today's episode, we have two very special guests, Ivan Gilreath and Deena Terry. Ivan and Deena work together as the CEO and CFO of the Boys and Girls Club of Greater Scottsdale. They give us their “secrets” for a successful CEO-CFO working relationship and how their dynamic works day in and day out in the organization. They also discuss nonprofit trends and why it's important to run a nonprofit like a business. Plus, Ivan tells us exactly how he set Deena up for success when she came on as the CFO after what felt like a revolving door of CFOs before his time as CEO at the organization. Now, Ivan and Deena have been working together as a team for over two years, so their dynamic is still going strong, and their nonprofit is reaping the benefits of it. About Ivan and Deena Ivan, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Scottsdale (BGCS) CEO, has two decades of corporate executive experience including success in strategic planning, growth, and community engagement. He served for 10 years as President and CEO of Boys & Girls Clubs of The Midlands. Prior to that, he spent five years as President of ING's Employee Benefits Division and 20 years in Mutual of Omaha's Group Insurance Division. Deena, the BGCS CFO, has worked in partnership with Ivan for two years. She has a wealth of nonprofit experience, and has spent her entire career in a number of different nonprofit organizations. Between the two of them, they have seen it all. Read the podcast transcript here. Episode Summary In today's episode, you'll learn the importance of a good working CEO-CFO relationship and how to set your new leaders up for success. Changes in the nonprofit sector (9:00) How nonprofit funding has changed (13:20) Consequences of not having diversified funding (18:40) Using technology to further fundraising (20:05) Making data-informed decisions (21:45) The dynamics of a CEO-CFO working relationship (23:05) Setting your CFO for success (26:50) Nonprofit leadership trends (30:35) Why it's important to run a nonprofit like a business (34:05) Teasers “We've become programmatically, even a better organization because during the pandemic we had to figure out different ways to deliver our programming than what we used to do before the pandemic.” “Just because we're called nonprofits doesn't mean that we should have $0 left over at the end of the year. We should not be spending every single dollar that comes in the door.” “You really can't do any aspect of this job correctly without good data.” “It's so important when organizations are thinking about bringing a CFO on or bringing another leader on to really ask themselves, ‘Okay, do we have the capacity to set them up for success.'” “Nonprofits are held to the same standards as for profits today.” “Being a good businessman also makes you a good steward because you're not just taking that money for granted and throwing it at whatever you're thinking about.” Huge thank you to our sponsor!

Keep going brother!Show NotesQuotes...“Life with my parents and the other family members was natural and pleasant. Mutual support happened spontaneously and guaranteed the survival of people as well as of material and spiritual values. Until a few years ago, those bonds were so strong in the rural culture that they safeguarded ideals. The willingness to make sacrifices for others, to be able to wait for a reward, the devotion to work; for me, these are everlasting values. The joy of working together and sharing what was being produced turned work into a joyful liturgy, not a punishment. We all knew what was being done in the fields, in the garden, in the pastures, at home; planting, cultivating, raising children and helping parents. There was no wealth, but we were happy. And it makes me think: having enough is itself a form of wealth.” -Brunello Cucinelli, Italian billionaireReferences...Apache Junction, ArizonaMLB Wild Card StandingsHaboobRMIT Episode #43: Troy Blanchard-"Choose Your Own Adventure"RMIT Episode #121: Daphne and Troy Blanchard-"Uh oh...Mom and Dad are Receiving Inspiration""The Imperfect Harvest" by Vern Stanfill"The Challenge to Become" by Elder Dallin H.

This is a conversation about Andaiye who was born 81 years ago today on September 11th 1942. For this discussion we speak with Alissa Trotz, who like Andaiye was born in Guyana. Alissa teaches in Women and Gender Studies and Caribbean Studies at the University of Toronto. For the last 15 years she has edited In the Diaspora, a weekly newspaper column in a Guyanese daily newspaper, the Stabroek News. Alissa has worked with Red Thread, the women's organization co-founded by Andaiye, for over two and a half decades. She is the editor of the book we discuss today, The Point is to Change the World: Selected Writings of Andaiye published by Pluto Press. The book also has a recently translated Portuguese version, published by Edition Funilaria in Brazil. Andaiye was one of the Caribbean's most important political voices. She was a radical activist, thinker, and comrade of Walter Rodney. Through essays, speeches, letters and journal entries, Andaiye's thinking on the intersections of gender, race, class and power are profoundly articulated, Caribbean histories emerge, and stories from a life lived at the barricades are revealed. We learn about the early years of the Working People's Alliance, the meaning and impact of the murder of Walter Rodney and the fall of the Grenada Revolution. Throughout, we bear witness to Andaiye's acute understanding of politics rooted in communities and the daily lives of so-called ordinary people. We discuss various writings from this collection. Touching on concepts like negation and self-negation, self-criticism as a political method, Andaiye's concept of the conspiracy of mutual caring, some of her reflections on her time with Walter Rodney in the Working People's Alliance, and a good deal discussing Andaiye's thought around the importance of autonomy in organizing. There are also some discussions of the importance of cross-racial organizing in a context like Guyana with a working class politically divided along racial lines. Alissa shares with us reflections on the work of Red Thread, in which again she and Andaiye both organized. We touch on work around wages for housework, social reproduction and care, and how Andaiye organized around many different issues from violence against women and children to her own battle with cancer.

And Another Thing With Dave, by Dave Smith #AATWD In this episode, part 2 in an 8 part series with Courtney, Lets Just Think, Uncle Leo, and RJ Strange, from the Stereo app. Summary: A nine-year-old child was shot and killed by the police in front of their parents and sibling. The child had grabbed a pocket knife and was threatening a 12-year-old. The incident raises questions about the police's ability to handle the situation without resorting to lethal force. Facts: A family called the police when their nine-year-old child grabbed a pocket knife and threatened their 12-year-old sibling. The police arrived at the scene and shot the nine-year-old in front of the parents and sibling. The incident highlights concerns about a grown-ass man not being able to disarm a nine-year-old without using a gun. The absence of non-lethal options like net guns, as seen in Japan, is criticized, suggesting the need for alternative methods of restraint. The lack of training for police officers in disarming individuals is questioned. The commentator mentions a show called Mutual of Omaha Wild Kingdom, where tranquilizing and capturing animals with net guns was depicted. The commentator suggests that basic techniques like grabbing the knife-wielding wrist and taking the person down should be part of police training.

Rough and tough Hard-boiled detectives grab a lot of attention, but who would have a better insight on the nature of human evil than “a man who does next to nothing but hear men's real sins”?Where could you find a more “soft-boiled” character than the parish priest. Mutual brought The Adventures of Father Brown to the air in 1945. Father Brown was the antithesis of the more celebrated soft-boiled detective, Sherlock Holmes. Where Holmes was a master of deduction, Father Brown relied on intuition based on his familiarity on men's souls.The Eye of Apollo: Susie has fallen under the spell of a charismatic leader of a sect, when his wife dies, Father Brown intervenes.

The world of art and artists provides the backdrop for our four old time radio mysteries. First, Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce are Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson hunt for a stolen painting in "The Girl with the Gazelle" from The New Adventures of Sherlock Holmes (originally aired on Mutual on March 25, 1946). Next, an artist's sketch leads to a new adventure for Rocky Jordan in "Portrait of Rocky" (originally aired on CBS on April 3, 1949). Edmond O'Brien is on the case of a $250,000 art gallery heist in "The Missing Masterpiece" from Yours Truly, Johnny Dollar (originally aired on CBS on March 28, 1950). And finally, a forged painting leads to a new case for Mr. and Mrs. North in "Collector's Item" (AFRS rebroadcast from February 9, 1954).
Compromise is often touted as an important part of a good relationship, but it is never necessary. You can find a solution or make a decision without either person giving anything up, and this applies in many, many relationships, not just couples.Read more ›
Welcome back to Mutual Presents. This week, we're reintroducing our Tuesday Terror feature from the classic days of the Mutual Broadcasting System, and this time the incredibly eclectic anthology series- The Mysterious Traveler! This series ran on Mutual from December 1943 until about September of 1952. This tremendously popular radio show was truly an all around favorite for any mystery lover of the time. It was the brainchild and magnum opus of golden age writing greats Robert Arthur and David Kogan. The series was nominated for the coveted Edgar award for "Best Radio Drama" in 1949, 1951 and finally garnered a hands down win in 1953. The only show to have more nominations was CBS powerhouse Suspense. The Mysterious Traveler scripts totaled nearly 400 with only about 70 surviving today! Of those seventy we begin our voyage with the Traveler with "The House of Death" and "The Good Die Young"! Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

The Long Nineteenth CenturyThe long nineteenth century really began in 1789 with the French Revolution and ending with World War One. This phrase was coined by the British historian Eric Hogsbawm to describe a series of events that made speaking of 1789 to 1914 make more sense historically speaking than 1800 to 1900. He categorized this long nineteenth century into three connected but distinct eras: the Age of Revolution from 1789 to 1848, the Age of Capital from 1848 to 1875, and the Age of Empire from 1875 to 1914. Hogsbawm was a committed Communist throughout most of his life, and so, he sees History in terms of the Marxist lens of power struggles. In the midst of this time period, there were certainly struggles. The Enlightenment ideals came to a head with the French Revolution's cries of Liberty, Equality, and Fraternity. The absolute monarchies and conservatism were being challenged and the revolution was willing to use violence, if necessary, to change the dynamic of power and secure liberal values for the common man. At the time, there were three classes in society, known as estates: the first estate was the clergy, the second estate was the nobility, and the third estate were the commoners. And, of course, the king enjoyed absolute power over the whole polity. Once this hierarchical structure was deposed and democracy was awoken, the revolutionary spirit spread throughout Europe. By 1848, only Russia and Britain remained largely untouched, in terms of the monarchy. The Industrial Revolution was in full swing by the middle of the long nineteenth century. Factories were rising up throughout the United States and Europe. These factories often had horrific conditions, but they led to the concentration of wealth among the owners and operators of private enterprises. The tycoons of various enterprises became obscenely wealthy, but with the overturning of the feudal system, the common man was finding it difficult to earn a decent wage. The conditions in factories and mills led to men in their mid-thirties retiring because they were physically no longer able to work. Child labor was common. The work week consisted of six days and the work day was sometimes sixteen hours long. In some factories, tired workers would endure burns, cuts, scrapes, lost fingers, hair getting caught in machinery, or even death. Admittedly the imperial system exported European culture and organizational strategies and structures to locales throughout the world. However, the subjection to hard labor, low pay, and widespread corruption made it hard for locals to see colonization as a good thing. Especially in Africa, the lines drawn on maps by the Europeans created conflict between various tribes which up to that point were at relative peace with one another. The long nineteenth century undoubtedly led to the world in which we now find ourselves. The progress of man in terms of technology, communication, and global interconnection was epoch-defining. However, as we can see from the 20th Century, the abandoning of conservatism, traditional morality, solidarity among people, and Neitzche's “death of God” led to death, genocide, destruction, and a refusal to recognize the dignity fo the human person that the world had never seen on such a large scale. The same Communism that rose to prominence in the long nineteenth century and promised utopia ultimately was the direct cause of the negative effects and human death in the twentieth century. In the nineteenth century, Communism was on the rise, social change was rapidly reordering Europe, industrialization was in full swing and capitalism was becoming the dominant economic system. The working man was mistreated egregiously in many places and communism became more and more appealing. It also should not be forgotten that the aristocracy stood to gain the most from the new capitalist systems. Workers were unambiguously exploited and impoverished. Rerum NovarumIt is in this context, in 1891, that Pope Leo XIII wrote and released Rerum Novarum on Capital and Labor. This letter is the first of his social encyclicals and begins the development of what is now called Catholic Social Teaching (CST). CST is nothing other than an application of perennial Church teaching to the modern developments of capitalism, liberalism, socialism, materialism, and the like. So, CST is not new, but the world's ideologies and systems are. How does the Church speak truth to the world and ensure that people are being approached with true dignity? This is what CST aims to do. It is not a social justice warrior ideology. It is not an endorsement of capitalism or communism.The three major themes of Rerum Novarum are:* The balancing of labor and capital* The common good and * The role of the statePope Leo XIII also recognized the special status of the poor in social issues and especially God's love, compassion, and favor for the poor. This would later be called the preferential option for the poor. Balancing Labor and CapitalPope Leo XIII says early on in the document that:“It is no easy matter to define the relative rights and mutual duties of the rich and of the poor, of capital and of labor. And the danger lies in this, that crafty agitators are intent on making use of these differences of opinion to pervert men's judgments and to stir up the people to revolt (RN, 2).”In this, the Pope is acknowledging why workers are upset. They are being mistreated. He does not deny the good that the capitalist system can bring, but throughout Rerum Novarum he offers a helpful and important critique. He is likewise wary of liberalism and socialism. Without denying the reality of the world around him, the Pope is able to offer a balanced take on the situation. This is why Rerum Novarum continues to be so important throughout the ensuing 132 years. The good distinctions the Pope is making are timeless!Speaking of these rights and duties and offering a critique of the Marxist view of class struggle, the Pope says:“The great mistake made in regard to the matter now under consideration is to take up with the notion that class is naturally hostile to class, and that the wealthy and the working men are intended by nature to live in mutual conflict. So irrational and so false is this view that the direct contrary is the truth. Just as the symmetry of the human frame is the result of the suitable arrangement of the different parts of the body, so in a State is it ordained by nature that these two classes should dwell in harmony and agreement, so as to maintain the balance of the body politic. Each needs the other: capital cannot do without labor, nor labor without capital. Mutual agreement results in the beauty of good order, while perpetual conflict necessarily produces confusion and savage barbarity. Now, in preventing such strife as this, and in uprooting it, the efficacy of Christian institutions is marvellous and manifold. First of all, there is no intermediary more powerful than religion (whereof the Church is the interpreter and guardian) in drawing the rich and the working class together, by reminding each of its duties to the other, and especially of the obligations of justice (RN, 19).”Workers have duties towards their employers, the Pope says. They are to perform their work conscientiously which they have freely agreed to undertake. They should not settle issues with violence nor should they damage the property of their employer. Further they are “to have nothing to do with men of evil principles, who work upon the people with artful promises of great results, and excite foolish hopes which usually end in useless regrets and grievous loss (RN, 20).”On the other hand, employers have duties as well. They should respect the dignity of their workers. There is a contract between employer and worker; they are not indentured servants, nor should they be seen as a factor in production. The employer needs to remember that working for a living is an honorable thing. They are not to overtax their workers by giving them work that is beyond their physical or mental capability. Employers must not defraud their employees into reducing their wages or create undue pressure. He says, “To defraud any one of wages that are his due is a great crime which cries to the avenging anger of Heaven (RN, 20).”One of the most important items that Pope Leo writes about is the idea of what we now call a “living wage.” He says: “Let the working man and the employer make free agreements, and in particular let them agree freely as to the wages; nevertheless, there underlies a dictate of natural justice more imperious and ancient than any bargain between man and man, namely, that wages ought not to be insufficient to support a frugal and well-behaved wage-earner. If through necessity or fear of a worse evil the workman accept harder conditions because an employer or contractor will afford him no better, he is made the victim of force and injustice (RN, 45).”These free agreements duly honor the dignity of man and also lead to the flourishing of the worker, the employer, and the State. So, the Pope argues, the State should ensure that the interests of the working class are “carefully watched over” because it will be a benefit to the whole community that “being housed, clothed, and bodily fit, they may find their life less hard and more endurable (RN, 34).”The Common GoodLet us now briefly examine the second main theme: the common good. In a critique of socialism, the Pope says that people have a right to private ownership. However, this right must be balanced against the notion of the common good. He says:“The chief and most excellent rule for the right use of money is one the heathen philosophers hinted at, but which the Church has traced out clearly, and has not only made known to men's minds, but has impressed upon their lives. It rests on the principle that it is one thing to have a right to the possession of money and another to have a right to use money as one wills. Private ownership, as we have seen, is the natural right of man, and to exercise that right, especially as members of society, is not only lawful, but absolutely necessary (RN, 22).”He goes on to say, though, that:“Whoever has received from the divine bounty a large share of temporal blessings, whether they be external and material, or gifts of the mind, has received them for the purpose of using them for the perfecting of his own nature, and, at the same time, that he may employ them, as the steward of God's providence, for the benefit of others (RN, 22).”So, there is nothing wrong with having material wealth. But these gifts need to be used well and properly ordered for the good of all, in common. The Pope makes this point explicitly when he says, “all citizens, without exception, can and ought to contribute to that common good in which individuals share so advantageously to themselves… (RN, 34).” There must, of course, be a special concern in weighing the good of all in society towards the poor and marginalized, precisely because they are powerless, in many concerns, to advocate for themselves. The Role of the StateThe role of the state is the third main theme. And it is fairly simple. The State exists to ensure the wellbeing for all in society, that the common good is served. And the state must support individuals and families to grow and develop. He writes:“Hereby, then, it lies in the power of a ruler to benefit every class in the State, and amongst the rest to promote to the utmost the interests of the poor; and this in virtue of his office, and without being open to suspicion of undue interference - since it is the province of the commonwealth to serve the common good. And the more that is done for the benefit of the working classes by the general laws of the country, the less need will there be to seek for special means to relieve them (RN, 32).”Besides ensuring the dignity of the human person, this advice is so practical. If workers are benefited from the outset, then the needs of special programs will be lessened and perhaps eliminated. Can you imagine, for example, a society which takes the needs of the lower and middle classes seriously in a preemptive sense rather than pouring money into social welfare programs that address needs after the fact? What would need to change in society for this to be a reality? It is something which I think current and future generations must contend with. And, frankly, the Catholic Church is the only institution which can lead the way, as we always have. The balance needed, especially in our broad and globalized society, comes from the life-giving saving Gospel of Jesus Christ instantiated through the principles of solidarity and subsidiarity.The State should not subsume the place of individuals and families. It should be at the service of them and no more. As the Pope says,“We have said that the State must not absorb the individual or the family; both should be allowed free and untrammelled action so far as is consistent with the common good and the interest of others (RN, 35).”Human beings have dignity and worth, and the human family is the fundamental cell of society. If the State overwhelms this reality then society falls apart. If you are interested in more of an analysis on this, please go listen to my episode on Solidarity and Subsidiarity. In Rerum Novarum, the Pope teaches clearly that an important key to human dignity is the availability of fulfilling work, with pay and working conditions that show care and concern for the needs of the worker. Further, families have tangible needs and communities need to benefit from private enterprise. ConclusionI have not even scratched the surface of the masterpiece that is Rerum Novarum by Pope Leo XIII. I highly recommend giving the whole thing a read through, especially if you are engaged in private enterprise, government work, or are a worker or employer. So, what I'm saying, really, is that everyone should read this document! If you would like a walk through the seven main themes of Catholic Social Teaching, please go listen to the episode entitled: “Does Jesus Want us to be Social Justice Warriors?” Admittedly, the title is a bit clickbaity but I basically just explain the broad movements of Catholic Social Teaching.

Singer-songwriters Diane Gentile and Alejandro Escovedo seemingly could not be more different. Gentile grew up as one of eight siblings in Flushing, Queens, and every morsel of her oozes New York City in a manner that evokes memories of the famed all-female band The Runaways. While Gentile cut her teeth in the music business as a club booker in the Lower East Side of Manhattan, Escovedo—the son of a Mexican immigrant who grew up in Texas—was living the life of a classic, nomadic troubadour. Yet, there were always connections. Mutual friends, moments where they occupied the same spaces. Eventually, they would meet and form a kinship. Together, Gentile and Escovedo joined me on a recent episode of The Load Out music podcast to discuss a new collaboration.
Welcome to Mutual Friends Podcast! Mutual Friends is like putting your group chat in a podcast form - we start with some chit chat about pop culture or anything we find remotely interesting in our lives and then dive into topics like reading our old diary entries, trying to think of the most nostalgic thing possible, or reading embarrassing stories for our own enjoyment. In today's episode we are bringing it WAY back by listing some nostalgic movies, toys, snacks, and even YouTubers that are sure to crack open a crevice of your brain you forgot existed.
I had the pleasure of meeting Kelly at a speaking event earlier this year that our Mutual friend and podcast guest Adam Jablin created. Kelly and I connected at the Hero Project and got to chatting about sobriety, business, life, relationships, success/failure and many other topics. We stayed in touch since and have had some amazing conversations that we upbeat, positive and very helpful to me. He sent me his book and what a powerful message of overcoming tragedy and turning it into triumph. A consummate professional, business owner, father, fitness junkie and more Kelly has overcome a challenging childhood that would have killed most people.Surrounded by poverty, physical and emotional abuse, violence and more he took charge of his life and wouldn't be stopped. All of that intensity nearly ruined everything until 4.5 years ago when he put down the bottle, the drugs and started over. He never hit a typical rock bottom but on NYE he was done with the lifestyle and hasn't looked back. I was fortunate enough to be on Kellys podcast which is set to air later this year but he was recently in town and we had the opportunity to wake up the sun, jump on the podcast, workout and barrel down in the Ice Barrel. We covered a lot of topics of being unapologetic and direct to how you are feeling, believing people when they sho you who they are and giving the benefit of the doubt sometimes to a fault. Kelly approaches life with intensity, tenacity and believes his worst day sober is better than his best day partying. He spends his time coaching others and giving back to society. If you are looking for a solid conversation, a kick in the ass or have any questions for Kelly don't hesitate to reach out on instagram @kelly.siegel.71 check out his phenomenal life story with the Harder than Life - book/podcast or visit www.harderthanlife.com & YouTube. Have a most triumphant day and remember he's not here to fit in.
Dividends are a crucial part of why whole life insurance is such an ideal asset for conducting an Infinite Banking Concept (IBC) strategy. But because dividends are not guaranteed is the life insurance contract, it raises the question: can we rely on life insurance dividends in a bad economy? Join us as we explore the inner workings of life insurance dividends, how it relates to the current economy, and why we don't think you have to be afraid. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6ONu2ZroHeQ Tune in as Bruce explores the factors at play, and find out how to navigate uncertainty while maximizing returns. How Are Life Insurance Dividends Calculated?Understanding the Dividend RateThe Dividend is Chasing the Death BenefitAre Life Insurance Dividends a Return of Premium?The Relationship Between the Treasury and Life Insurance DividendsCan You Still Get Life Insurance Dividends in a Bad Economy?Book A Strategy Call How Are Life Insurance Dividends Calculated? While all mutual companies calculate their dividends in different ways, and the calculations are proprietary, the components of those calculations are all the same. Essentially, life insurance companies have income and expenses. Expenses for a life insurance company include payroll, death claims (the most significant expense), and other overhead costs. The income is all based on products sold. The companies then invest that income. Mutual companies have a reputation for investing very conservatively, as well as having significant liquid reserves. A significant portion of the investments are made up of bonds and real estate. Insurance companies also make a profit on policy loans to their policyholders. When there is a profit, those profits are then distributed to policyholders. The insurance companies typically declare the rate for the coming year in December, based on all this information: expenses, profits, etc. Understanding the Dividend Rate Here's where things can get confusing. Just because a company declares a 5% dividend rate does not mean that each and every policyholder is getting a 5% increase in their cash value. The dividend rate is a gross number and is actually applied differently across policies. Factors that may contribute to your actual dividend include: Any fees from your policy Policy costs and expenses Existing policy loans Age of your policy In some cases, policies may even earn more than the declared dividend. There are many factors that contribute to this because the “goal” of every policy is endowment, which causes the dividend to “chase” the death benefit. The Dividend is Chasing the Death Benefit [9:10] “The dividend is actually chasing the death benefit, and the cash value is always chasing the death benefit. What do we mean by chasing? Whenever you take out a policy, let's say you put $50,000 in the first year… it's going toward the base policy. And the base policy is the foundation or the rock of the policy. It's the true insurance portion of the policy. Some of it goes to a term rider, and the term rider is there so we do not MEC the policy. And the last part is the paid-up additions rider. And those three cause a relatively high death benefit versus the $50,000.” The policy is set to endow at age 121. This is the point when the cash value is equal to the death benefit, and you will receive the full death benefit if you're still living. Over the course of your lifetime, you're watching your cash value chase this endowment. Meanwhile, the death benefit is also increasing because of PUAs. What this means is that your cash value and the death benefit of your policy are going to grow differently. Your policy has to have the growth momentum to actually reach this endowment. A 5-year-old has 116 years to accumulate enough money to reach endowment, while a 50-year-old only has 71 years. They might even get more than the declared dividend in order for the policy to keep up.

Our special guest, Ricki Lynne, the visionary behind Warrior Women's International, joins Christopher and Jamie to shed light on the merits of cultivating a relationship free from dominance. Throughout the conversation, we delve into the common dynamics where men tend to exert control, while women seek safety and assertiveness in their partnerships, and vice versa. The key to making any relationship thrive lies in the foundations of honesty, trust, respect, and open communication between partners. It's a shared effort that calls for compromise and dedication from both individuals involved. We break down the importance of creating an environment where power is not imbalanced. Mutual respect fosters an atmosphere where partners feel secure in expressing their independence and making decisions without fear of retribution or retaliation. Decision-making becomes a joint venture, strengthening the bond between couples. Join us as we navigate the complexities of modern relationships and learn valuable insights from Ricki Lynne's wealth of experience. Discover how embracing cooperation and understanding can lead to the kind of connection that stands the test of time. Whether you're in a relationship or seeking one, this episode offers indispensable guidance on finding the equilibrium for a truly fulfilling partnership.
When Bill Gargan was fired from Martin Kane he planned to star in a Broadway rendition of Doctor Knock. In late September of 1951, Gargan signed a one-million-dollar contract that made him the exclusive property of NBC for the next five years. The deal required him to participate in a minimum of four guest spots on radio and TV each year. At the same time, Gargan was invited by Frank Folsom of RCA to accompany him to Rome to meet the Pope. Along the way, Gargan went to Paris to appear in the October 7th, 1951 episode of The Big Show. He participated in a sketch involving a poker game with George Sanders, Fernand Gravey, and Meredith Willson. Two weeks after his Big Show appearance, William Gargan was starring in a new series for NBC. Launched as part of NBC's year-long Silver Jubilee, Barrie Crane, Confidential Investigator, first aired over NBC from New York on Wednesday October 3rd, 1951 at 10PM eastern time. Bill Gargan debuted as the detective opposite Mr. President on ABC, Frank Edwards on Mutual, and boxing on CBS. The show was directed by the just-heard Himan Brown. By 1952 Brown had been involved in radio for decades. The Barrie was inspired by the nickname of William Gargan's oldest son, then twenty-two. The title of the show was soon changed to Barrie Craig, Confidential Investigator. Episode three was called “The Judge and The Champ.” In conjunction with NBC's twenty-fifth anniversary, the network launched a series of both Radio and TV offerings highlighting the growth of NBC's technology, talent, infrastructure and advertising success. Block-sharing advertising was in full-effect. The network sold commercial time spots, rather than full shows and called it “Operation Tandem.” Gargan was back on The Big Show the next March 16th, 1952 to celebrate St. Patrick's Day with Tallulah Bankhead and good friend and fellow Catholic, Fred Allen. Now with transcription wide-spread, Barrie Craig could be heard on different days each week, based on the region. Listeners would also hear different commercials, depending on what local affiliate they were tuning into. These could also be a mix of local and national ad spots. Blocked-sharing was being used by the other networks. ABC touted theirs as 'The Pyramid Plan,' CBS as The Power Plan, and Mutual called their's MBS Plus. In a further refinement of MBS Plus, Mutual introduced an exclusive package of MGM programming for 1952. Both The Adventures of Harry Lime, and The Black Museum aired as part of this deal. For more information, tune into Breaking Walls episode 141. Launched with their tandem plan, NBC provided a "pay as you sell" opportunity for local affiliates. Local sponsors could pick from one-hundred-nineteen one-minute spots. The goal was to accommodate sponsors without a long contract. Craig occupied an office on the third floor of the Mercantile Building on Manhattan's Madison Avenue. Barrie Craig's writers included Frank Kane, Louis Vittes, John Roeburt, and Ernest Kinoy. William Gargan was supported by some of the finest east coast voice talents of the era. This included Santos Ortega, Elspeth Eric, Arlene Blackburn, Barbara Weeks, Joan Alexander, Parker Fennelly, Arnold Moss, Luis Van Rooten, and Herb Ellis. NBC announcers included Don Pardo and Ed King with John Daly as spokesperson for 1952 Pontiac spots and Carl Caruso for Bromo-Seltzer spots.
Magicians may be able to fool an audience, but they can't fool these old time radio detectives. We'll hear four mysteries involving illusions, prestidigitation, and sleight of hand along with murder. First, a real-life magician is the inspiration for Blackstone, The Magic Detective and the mystery of "The Icy Touch" (originally aired on Mutual on December 5, 1948). Then, mystery writer and amateur sleuth Barton Drake finds murder at a magic show in Mystery is My Hobby. Philo Vance hunts for the killer of a magician in "The Magic Murder Case" and a competition between magicians turns deadly in "The Case of the Magic Rope" on Nick Carter, Master Detective (originally aired on Mutual on March 21, 1948).
