If you're waiting for the supply chain to return to normal, stop immediately.  This is the new abnormal.  And our experts say it's going to stay this way for a while.  The problem is worldwide and can be found in factories, on cargo ships and inside ports and trucks.  And often, it's not that the goods aren't available.  In fact, warehouses all across the country are full.  There just aren't enough workers to move those goods.  And as if that's not bad enough, everything is now wrapped in a shroud of inflation.  And through it all, consumers have still been spending like crazy, so ultimately the problem could be… us.  In this episode of Y'all-itics, the Jasons are joined by supply chain and logistics experts who discuss how long this will last, how much worse it might get and the government policies that could fix it.  As it turns out, Texas could actually benefit in the long run.   Guests Professor Margaret Kidd, University of Houston/Supply Chain & Logistics Technology Aaron Armistead, Regional Vice President/NFI Industries

It's no doubt that we are living in volatile times. Today's guest goes as far as to call it ‘The New Abnormal!' But one thing remains, we need leaders to step up and lead even in these ambiguous times in an open and vulnerable way. Larry Robertson is an innovation advisor recognized for helping people discover value at the nexus of leadership, entrepreneurship (entrepreneurial thinking), and creativity.  He's a popular columnist with Inc.

Let's dive right in and learn from Larry how we as leaders need to face the music in uncertain times.  On this episode: What is an innovation advisor? How to help organizations marry leadership, entrepreneurship and creativity Leaders don't always have to know the answer, but they DO have to learn to be open and vulnerable as well as creative Leaders need to be good at navigating and mitigating risk - Don't back off of your responsibility when you get to the top How to lead within a ‘new abnormal' - we can't lead the same we always have, we need to ‘face the music'  An interesting look at the commonality of leaders' thoughts when they're anonymous Find out the biggest thing holding leaders back and making employees leave and what we need to do differently Key Takeaways: Leadership, entrepreneurship, and creativity  Making a 360 assessment of leadership We need to learn to lead in V.U.C.A.

Today, we're joined by Molly Jong-Fast, host of The New Abnormal podcast and Editor at Large at The Daily Beast. We start with her story on Gabby Petito which shook up the Internet this week, as she examined the coverage, the investigation, and the popularity of the case. Then, Joe and Alex ask Molly about the inter-party fight between Mitch McConnell and Donald Trump, which has the potential to spill into the primaries and maybe even provoke a nasty fight in the Senate. How can the GOP manage to win general elections when they have to move to the extreme right to win a primary? Finally, the discussion shifts to Texas, where Beto O'Rourke has reportedly decided to challenge Gov. Greg Abbott in the 2022 election for Governor. Could he actually unseat the Governor? Is Texas -- for real this time -- a place where Democrats could make some gains? Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

Michael Bender, the author of Frankly, We Did Win This Election says on the latest episode of The New Abnormal that the Hitler incident was just one shocking example of people in Trump's orbit belatedly coming to realize how dangerous the president was.The next guest, former Trump attorney Michael Cohen, says he's feeling pretty let down by the offerings in the latest string of Trump books.“Most of these people don't have information firsthand,” he says. “They're getting it from somebody else. And a lot of it is the same reconstituted bullshit that we've heard before, but just by somebody else.”However, he adds: “I think that the books are still important. I think it's just another example of how this orange crusted bloviated asshole took advantage of this country, especially the Justice Department.”Cohen cautions people to take a look at who is trying to mend their tarnished reputations through the books now that the Trump years are over, saying: “I think it's very disingenuous when they come out afterward and it's, you know, through a book.” Finally, Peter Sagal host of NPR's Wait Wait Don't Tell Me joins the crew to "call-in" with a hot take. tIf you haven't heard, every single week The New Abnormal does a special bonus episode for Beast Inside, the Daily Beast's membership program. where Sometimes we interview Senators like Cory Booker or the folks who explain our world in media like Jim Acosta or Soledad O'Brien.

But no one knows image rehabilitation better than Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner—in fact, they've been doing it for years, Sohmer says. “‘Sources close to Jared and Ivanka say' was the most used phrase in print of the Trump administration,” he adds.
