While Penn State fans wait to hear the outcome of a Board of Trustees meeting that's expected to confirm a contract extension for James Franklin this afternoon, there's still plenty to recap over the past week on the recruiting trail. The big news this week is the updated On300, which saw two Penn State commits, QB Drew Allar and RB Nick Singleton, earn a five-star rating. Hosts Greg Pickel and Ryan Snyder get into their rise, especially Allar, who has jumped from outside the top 15 at his position to the No. 1 quarterback in just 11 months. The list also includes top Penn State prospects like DE Dani Dennis-Sutton, LB Abdul Carter, RB Kaytron Allen, CB Cam Miller and Saf. KJ Winston, among others. Ryan and Greg get into some of the reasons they're ranked where they are. Ryan also feels as if future Penn State WR Kaden Saunders, who's down at No. 231 overall, needs to be someone On3 looks at closely when he participates in the Under Armour All-America game in January. The pair finish up the podcast discussing a few notable recruits who attended the game against Rutgers this past Saturday. Notable names include Saf. Dakaari Nelson, OL Sam Pendleton and LB Kamar Archie.

We're into the final stretch of the Penn State football season, and with that comes the early signing period in recruiting. With less than a month until the deadline, On3 recruiting insider Ryan Snyder joins host Thomas Frank Carr on the BWI Daily Edition to update the status of some final 2022 targets for the Nittany Lions.  They start with an update on four-star linebacker Jaishawn Barham, a 2022 prospect that Penn State fans have followed for quite some time. This week, Snyder has an update on the St. Francis Academy product that is the 149th player in the nation, according to On3. The ordinarily quiet Barham still isn't talking, but there is a new development in his recruiting.  The Nittany Lions are still interested in adding another tackle to the class of 2022 as well. Snyder says that after the commitment of Aamil Wagner to Notre Dame, the focus has shifted to a different player, but not the one that Penn State had pursued in the days around Wagener's commitment. T-Frank brings up the obvious issue of adding more players to this current class and asks how much getting a transfer lineman plays into the overall approach to the remaining scholarship spots Penn State is holding.  The last name to know this week is 2022 linebacker Moses Walker. The current Rutgers commit is someone that Snyder has learned more about in recent weeks and tells T-Frank what the updated situation is with the Erasmus Hall four-star defender.  With less than a month remaining, T-Frank asks Snyder how confident he is that Penn State can get the Class of 2022 to the finish line of the early signing period in December. Earlier this week on the recruiting podcast, Snyder noted that Kaytron Allen took an official visit to Florida State. He gives context to that again on the show.  After that, they move on to the Class of 2023 and some key names in that group. Snyder wrote an article recently about Life Christian Academy offensive lineman Joshua Miller, so he fills the audience in on what he learned. The four-start lineman at On3 opened up about just how close he was to committing early this month and to which school.  Another high-priority target in the class of 2023 will make an announcement early next month, and Snyder gives his impressions of what Rodney Gallagher will have to say at that time. The four-star two-sport athlete isn't expected to commit for several important reasons that Snyder highlights, but he does paint a good light for Penn State when it comes to the top-100 player in the class of 2023.  They wrap up the recruiting section of the show discussing the recruit list for the final home game of the 2021 season against Rutgers. Snyder notes that it won't be a list heavy with key names, but several players, including 2024 athlete Quinton Martin, are necessary to watch. He says he's gotten high praise for the Pittsburgh athlete from his sources and should be a name for Penn State fans to know.  Finally, Ryan Snyder's Best Bets returns with a 37-27 record. Here are the games for this week: VANDERBILT AT OLE MISS (-36.5)  VIRGINIA AT PITT (-14.5) UCLA (-3) AT USC SDSU (-10.5) AT UNLV RUTGERS AT PENN STATE (-17)  JOIN Blue White Illustrated: https://www.on3.com/teams/penn-state-nittany-lions/join/?plan=annual SUBSCRIBE to Blue White Illustrated on YouTube and enable alerts - new highlights and videos uploaded regularly: https://www.youtube.com/c/bluewhiteillustratedvideo?sub_confirmation Bookmark our homepage: https://www.on3.com/teams/penn-state-nittany-lions/ Subscribe to BWI Magazine and Newsletters: http://bluewhiteonline.com Download our podcasts: https://bluewhiteillustrated.podbean.com/ Like us on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/BlueWhiteIllustrated/ Follow us on Twitter https://twitter.com/PennStateOn3

Penn State football held their open practice yesterday, and senior editor Nate Bauer is back for his weekly chat to discuss what he saw and heard. He joins host Thomas Frank Carr to discuss what they saw from the players and what head coach James Franklin said after practice to the media.    They start with the issues along the offensive line that Penn State is dealing with this week. Three players, tackles Rasheed Walker, Caedan Wallace, and center Mike Miranda, were all absent from Wednesday night's open availability. Franklin said that they are among several players with a non-COVID flu. So who stepped in for them in practice, and how did they look? T-Frank and Bauer discuss.    Franklin delivered another new piece of information yesterday that freshman quarterback Christian Veilleux has overtaken Ta'Quan Roberson for the backup quarterback position in the past few weeks. Nate doesn't think the information is relevant to this weekend or the rest of the season, but T-Frank tries to put it into a context that matters going forward. He contends that it's a positive sign from a specific aspect that bodes well for Veilleux next season.    A reporter brought up Penn State facilities and program health on Wednesday night, so T-Frank and Bauer dig into the topic one more time. Franklin's latest comment piqued T-Frank's interest, so he asked Bauer to elaborate on what Franklin meant.    After a lengthy discussion about the program's trajectory and where it stands in college football, they switch gears and answer questions submitted by listeners on Twitter. The topics they discuss include:    Is there hope for improved quarterback play next season?  Is there a specific list of projects that Nate and T-Frank can identify to make Penn State a relevant football program?  How should fans feel about the 2021 season, given where it started, how it went, and where it's ending?  What goes wrong when Sean Clifford holds on to the ball?  Should Penn State be more aggressive in the transfer portal for receiver depth going forward? What improvements and strides have been made that fans don't see? Why is the nature of being a fan so torturous?    Finally, T-Frank wraps up the show with a quick preview of what he's seen of Rutgers on film and what their identity can tell him about how the game plays out. Only one facet of the Scarlet KNight's offensive attack interests him, and he says it might play a factor on Saturday. However, despite his best efforts, one key piece of information is missing to give an accurate projection.    JOIN Blue White Illustrated: https://www.on3.com/teams/penn-state-nittany-lions/join/?plan=annual SUBSCRIBE to Blue White Illustrated on YouTube and enable alerts - new highlights and videos uploaded regularly: https://www.youtube.com/c/bluewhiteillustratedvideo?sub_confirmation Bookmark our homepage: https://www.on3.com/teams/penn-state-nittany-lions/ Subscribe to BWI Magazine and Newsletters: http://bluewhiteonline.com Download our podcasts: https://bluewhiteillustrated.podbean.com/ Like us on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/BlueWhiteIllustrated/ Follow us on Twitter https://twitter.com/PennStateOn3

Penn State football hosts Rutgers for their final home game of the 2021 regular season on Saturday. To get you ready, Thomas Frank Carr, host of the BWI Daily Edition, brings on James Kratch of NJ.com to preview the game from the Scarlett Knights perspective.  They start with the well-known ties of former Penn State assistant coach Greg Schiano coming back to Penn State for the first time as a head coach. T-Frank asks Kratch about how Schiano handles those emotions and feelings this week as he prepares for the game.  After that, they start with the running game for Rutgers, which features an interesting statistic that T-Frank found this week. First, Kratch explains why so many players for the Scarlett Knights have touched the ball on offense. Then, they discuss how vital that facet of the game has been and just how inconsistent it's been.  A crucial part of the rushing attack is quarterback Noah Vedral, one of the more prolific rushing quarterbacks in the Big Ten. T-Frank asks how important Vedral is to that part of Rutgers' offense, and Krtach explains that it's a complicated situation.  Next, they move on to the passing attack. The Rutgers and Penn State offenses share one particular commonality, according to T-Frank. Kratch explains why Rutgers struggles to move the ball through the air and compensate for lack of quality pass protection.  From there, they move on to a large picture of the program so that Penn State fans have an idea of what Schiano is building in New Jersey. T-Frank asks how the team is using the transfer portal, ties to the state, and recruiting the east coast to battle the other titans of the division. Kratch tells him that Schiano is doing better than his predecessors in one key area but still lags in others.  From there, they move no to the defense and how they've performed this season. T-Frank has noticed on film how Schiano may want to play differently than he needs to win games. So he asks Kratch to fill him in on how the Scarlett Knight's leader is building the defense and what he wants their identity to be.  A prominent part of the Rutgers plan is to stop the run. T-Frank highlights nose tackle Julius Turner as a player that stood out to him and found out his story from Kratch. They also go over the injury situation at linebacker and how that might dictate a personnel switch this weekend.  Finally, they wrap up looking at the key elements that will determine the game on Saturday. Kratch also explains this game is a benchmark for Rutgers and its fans, outside of just a win that will make the team bowl eligible. T-Frank wraps up by asking for keys to the game.    JOIN Blue White Illustrated: https://www.on3.com/teams/penn-state-nittany-lions/join/?plan=annual SUBSCRIBE to Blue White Illustrated on YouTube and enable alerts - new highlights and videos uploaded regularly: https://www.youtube.com/c/bluewhiteillustratedvideo?sub_confirmation Bookmark our homepage: https://www.on3.com/teams/penn-state-nittany-lions/ Subscribe to BWI Magazine and Newsletters: http://bluewhiteonline.com Download our podcasts: https://bluewhiteillustrated.podbean.com/ Like us on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/BlueWhiteIllustrated/ Follow us on Twitter https://twitter.com/PennStateOn3

It's senior day on Saturday at Beaver Stadium for the Penn State football team. Typically this has been a time to celebrate outgoing classes and reflect on their accomplishments as they head on to the next chapter of their lives. But, is that the case anymore?  On the BWI Daily Edition, host Thomas Frank Carr looks at the senior class and precisely two members in it as to whether or not they should return for their extra year of eligibility. First, senior tackle PJ Mustipher exited in early October with a season-ending injury. Should he come back for one more season to put tape on film for NFL scouts? T-Frank weighs the pros and cons of Mustipher's upcoming decision. T-Frank spends the bulk of the first segment considering the future of signal-caller Sean Clifford. The fifth-year senior could come back for a future season, but does that do him any good for his NFL future? On the flip side, does Penn State want him back? Finally, would it be good for the team and fans to have Clifford under center in 2022? T-Frank looks at some key factors that would determine Clifford's success based on his performance this season and some stark contrasts in critical metrics. He also plays some comments from James Franklin about players that will directly impact that situation in the future.  Next, T-Frank checks in with basketball reporter Dave Eckert about the Penn State Hoops team and their upset loss on the road to UMass Monday night. He gets the scoop on what happened, why Penn State struggled, and what it means for the team going forward.  They also discuss the program as a whole under first-year coach Micah Shrewsberry and what casual fans need to know as the season ramps up at the Bryce Jordan Center.    JOIN Blue White Illustrated: https://www.on3.com/teams/penn-state-nittany-lions/join/?plan=annual SUBSCRIBE to Blue White Illustrated on YouTube and enable alerts - new highlights and videos uploaded regularly: https://www.youtube.com/c/bluewhiteillustratedvideo?sub_confirmation Bookmark our homepage: https://www.on3.com/teams/penn-state-nittany-lions/ Subscribe to BWI Magazine and Newsletters: http://bluewhiteonline.com Download our podcasts: https://bluewhiteillustrated.podbean.com/ Like us on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/BlueWhiteIllustrated/ Follow us on Twitter https://twitter.com/PennStateOn3

A packed Friday edition of the BWI Daily is now live. Host Thomas Frank Carr is joined not by Ryan Snyder this week but instead by his colleague, Blue-White Illustrated report Greg Pickel. T-Frank and Greg start the show by looking at a big surprise in the recruiting world from Thursday. Ohio four-star tackle Aamil Wagner picked not Kentucky or Penn State but instead Notre Dame. How did that come to be, and what does it mean for the Lions? Greg also shares his amazement at the fact that a surprise decision can still take place in 2021. From there, the pair dive into a conversation about the state of the Penn State offensive line moving forward. T-Frank notes that there are a few offensive tackle commits in the PSU Class of 2022 and the Lions seemingly want to add another still with how Ryan has been talking about Penn State's interest in Julian Armella. Does loading up at that spot make sense? T-Frank and Greg discuss the pros and cons. Next, key questions are asked: What is the timeline for ‘help' arriving on the offensive line? Who are some young guys on the offensive line that could make a move next season and become contributors if not starters? Transfers have to be part of the equation now too, right? Beyond the offensive line, what positions are the easiest to get in the transfer portal, and which should be prioritized? T-Frank and Greg answer them one by one while trying to assess how things could look in the future. The show then moves away from recruiting and into a College Football Playoff rankings discussion. Is it shocking that Penn State was not ranked by the committee for a second-straight week? Does it matter? And what issues do T-Frank and Greg have with the committee? T-Frank calls it a Because we said so” group and explains why. Finally, they end the week with Greg filling in for Ryan Snyder's Best Bets. You can see them below. The pair also goes in-depth on the Penn State-Michigan matchup. What must the Lions do to say in it? Why does Greg think the Wolverines could win by a touchdown? And, what are some key matchups to watch? It's all addressed in the final BWI Daily edition of the week.

Penn State football held open practice yesterday, and senior editor of Blue White Illustrated Nate Bauer joins the BWI Daily Edition to fill you in on what he saw. Host Thomas Frank Carr joins him to discuss their observations from open practice and what head coach James Franklin said after practice.    From his perspective, Bauer thought that one particular position group was sharp on Wednesday night, which has been the case for several weeks now. T-Frank focused on the offensive and defensive lines during the open period and came away with some distinct impressions. He noticed what they were working on and how offensive line coach Phil Trautwein was coaching his players.    Next, they have a lengthy discussion about the running game and the running backs for Penn State. After practice, James Franklin was very clear about what he's looking for to separate one runner from the rest. With that in mind, T-Frank has a clear picture of what he thinks should happen going forward with the reps at that position. Next, he and Bauer talk about the pros and cons of the run game and how one or two runs can change the picture dramatically.   After that, T-Frank introduces a new question segment on the show where he takes questions from fans submitted on Twitter. The topics include: -Was the succession of offensive coordinators over the last four years due to financial limitations, or were they decisions by Franklin?  -Does the Class of 2022 factor into whether or not James Franklin will leave Penn State this offseason?  -A question about the NFL Draft -Sean Clifford's ability to run against Michigan    Finally, they wrap up by previewing the game this Saturday. T-Frank brings up that both teams have a quality, veteran quarterback who doesn't make many mistakes. How will that affect how the opposing defenses call the game? Bauer and T-Frank then discuss how things could play out in a game that features two very different play styles. From an offensive perspective, Michigan has the very thing that Penn State is lacking from its running game. So how does Penn State combat that? T-Frank has an idea. He also gives his thoughts on the Michigan offensive system, how funky it is, and how the offensive line plays within it.    They wrap up the discussion by giving some predictions about the final score and how they think the game will play out.    JOIN Blue White Illustrated: https://www.on3.com/teams/penn-state-nittany-lions/join/?plan=annual SUBSCRIBE to Blue White Illustrated on YouTube and enable alerts - new highlights and videos uploaded regularly: https://www.youtube.com/c/bluewhiteillustratedvideo?sub_confirmation Bookmark our homepage: https://www.on3.com/teams/penn-state-nittany-lions/ Subscribe to BWI Magazine and Newsletters: http://bluewhiteonline.com Download our podcasts: https://bluewhiteillustrated.podbean.com/ Like us on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/BlueWhiteIllustrated/ Follow us on Twitter https://twitter.com/PennStateOn3

Penn State football faces Michigan in their second-to-last home game of the regular season on Saturday. So what do you know about the Wolverines? Clayton Sayfie of The Wolverine jones host Thomas Frank Carr to give an in-depth scouting report on Penn State's next opponent.  As always, they start on the offensive side of the ball, but unlike most shows, T-Frank begins up front with Jim Harbaugh. Facing a crossroads this offseason, Harbaugh made significant changes on that side of the ball, resulting in a much more effective offense in 2021. What did he change? Sayfie fills T-Frank in on the details and how they've changed the Michigan front.  They also go into how former Penn State assistant coach Josh Gattis' influenced the offense and blended the two philosophies. After that, they discuss some specific schemes that Penn State has struggled against historically and that Michigan has incorporated this season. Have they been effective? Sayfie gives an answer you might not expect.  Next, they talk about the stars of the Michigan offense, the running backs. Hassan Haskins and Blake Corum are two of the top-10 leading rushers in the Big Ten and have been dynamic this season. Yet after an injury, last week, will this duo be ready to go this weekend? Sayfie also describes the duo's playing style and how they work off of one another.  They shift their focus to the passing game, and T-Frank claims that quarterback Cade McNamara is the perfect quarterback for Jim Harbaugh. Does Sayfie agree? And what makes McNamara fit so well into the system?  That conversation evolves into the passing attack, which may be down several players this weekend, according to Sayfie. T-Frank then asks if this unit can be explosive enough to compliment the rest of the team.  After that, they shift to the defensive side of the ball to discuss the changes under new defensive coordinator Mike Macdonald. Macdonald was hired from the Baltimore Ravens this offseason and has changed the way the team plays dramatically. What are the most significant differences? Sayfie explains that the changes he has made have improved one unit drastically. At the same time, T-Frank gives his summation of that group.  Next, they discuss some of Macdonald's changes since the loss to Michigan State and how that might change things for the Wolverines this weekend.  Yet, the stars of the Michigan defense are along the defensive line. They talk about defensive ends David Ojabo and Aidan Hutchinson and just how good they have been this season. Sayfie also clues T-Frank into just how quickly Hutchinson has turned into an elite-level defender. His backstory is not what you'd think. After talking about the bookends of the defensive line, they discuss the rest of the front seven and how they complement those two players.  Finally, T-Frank asks Sayfie what matchups he thinks will decide the game.  JOIN Blue White Illustrated: https://www.on3.com/teams/penn-state-nittany-lions/join/?plan=annual SUBSCRIBE to Blue White Illustrated on YouTube and enable alerts - new highlights and videos uploaded regularly: https://www.youtube.com/c/bluewhiteillustratedvideo?sub_confirmation Bookmark our homepage: https://www.on3.com/teams/penn-state-nittany-lions/ Subscribe to BWI Magazine and Newsletters: http://bluewhiteonline.com Download our podcasts: https://bluewhiteillustrated.podbean.com/ Like us on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/BlueWhiteIllustrated/ Follow us on Twitter https://twitter.com/PennStateOn3

Over the past few years, dozens of star journalists at mainstream media outlets announced that they were quitting their jobs to launch their own ventures, usually on platforms like Substack. As a result, some have drastically increased their income, sometimes into the seven figures.  As more and more writers defected, I and others wondered how legacy media outlets would respond. Would they adapt their business models so that their writers could capture more of the value that they generate? Last week, The Atlantic announced that it's partnering with about a dozen writers to author standalone newsletters for the magazine. Though the partnership details are somewhat vague, they could provide a framework for how media outlets will compete with platforms like Substack moving forward. To discuss these moves, I sat down with communications consultant Jonathan Rick. We dove into The Atlantic's newsletter strategy and discussed whether it's effective enough to lure independent journalists back into the warm embrace of legacy media.

Penn State football faced Michigan on Saturday in one of the most anticipated home games of the season. After watching the film, looking up the data, and listening to experts, host Thomas Frank Carr has boiled the entire game down to just one key matchup.    He believes how left tackle Rasheed Walker, right tackle Caedan Wallace and quarterback Sean Clifford handle the pass rush of Michigan edge rushers Aidan Hutchinson and David Ojabo will determine the outcome of the game on Saturday.  The path to victory for Michigan is clear. First and foremost, they need to win enough one-on-one battles on the edge of the pocket to force quarterback Sean Clifford to make a critical mistake. If they can disrupt the Nittany Lions' passing attack with quick pressures and sacks, Penn State does not have an effective means of moving the football.  On the flip side, the path to victory is much messier for head coach James Franklin's squad. T-Frank plays clips from Franklin's weekly press conference to give listeners the head coach's perspective and then deciphers what he means after that. He also provides context to the matchup by describing the types of players that Wallace and Walker have succeeded against this season. Does that match the playing style of the Wolverines?   T-Frank also gives key pass rushing and pass protection stats to back up his theory. Then he discusses different ways to neutralize the duo from Ann Arbor.  The wildcard in all of these paths to success for Penn State will be the play of Clifford. Has his game changed since his injury? T-Frank digs into the numbers about Clifford outside of his passing to find a dramatic shift in his playing style.  Finally, he wraps up by giving an edge to one group or the other based on the evidence.  JOIN Blue White Illustrated: https://www.on3.com/teams/penn-state-nittany-lions/join/?plan=annual SUBSCRIBE to Blue White Illustrated on YouTube and enable alerts - new highlights and videos uploaded regularly: https://www.youtube.com/c/bluewhiteillustratedvideo?sub_confirmation Bookmark our homepage: https://www.on3.com/teams/penn-state-nittany-lions/ Subscribe to BWI Magazine and Newsletters: http://bluewhiteonline.com Download our podcasts: https://bluewhiteillustrated.podbean.com/ Like us on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/BlueWhiteIllustrated/ Follow us on Twitter https://twitter.com/PennStateOn3

Penn State got their sixth win of the season on Saturday to make the team bowl eligible. Yet inconsistencies on offense continue to be a problem, and the team still cannot run the football. It's causing some fans to question whether or not head coach James Franklin got the wrong guy in offensive line coach Phil Trautwein. Trautwein was hired in the winter of 2020 after Franklin decided not to renew the contract for then offensive line coach Matt Limegrover, who has been with the team for four seasons. Trautwein was brought in and regarded as an upgrade at the position as both a technical coach and a recruiter.   Thomas Frank Carr dives into Phil Tratuwein's resume before Penn State and finds that it's exceedingly short at his current position. He also looks at the situation that Tratuwein inherited both at Boston College and Penn State in 2020. Lastly, T-Frank tries to find a common link between all situations to form a conclusion on Tratuwein's coaching ability.   JOIN Blue White Illustrated: https://www.on3.com/teams/penn-state-nittany-lions/join/?plan=annual SUBSCRIBE to Blue White Illustrated on YouTube and enable alerts - new highlights and videos uploaded regularly: https://www.youtube.com/c/bluewhiteillustratedvideo?sub_confirmation Bookmark our homepage: https://www.on3.com/teams/penn-state-nittany-lions/ Subscribe to BWI Magazine and Newsletters: http://bluewhiteonline.com Download our podcasts: https://bluewhiteillustrated.podbean.com/ Like us on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/BlueWhiteIllustrated/ Follow us on Twitter https://twitter.com/PennStateOn3

Penn State football may have stalled out on the field, but are they still making headway in recruiting? On3 recruiting insider Ryan Snyder joins the BWI Daily Edition to talk about just where the Nittany Lions stand in several vital areas. A significant change to the show and Blue White Illustrated's recruiting coverage took place this week with our switch to On3, the newest recruiting site in high school and college sports. Host Thomas Frank Carr and Snyder talk about what you should expect from On3 and how they plan to take high school scouting and recruiting coverage to the next level. One of the most significant changes that On3 is planning to bring to the table is the amount of information and interactive data that fans can access through their recruiting database. Snyder breaks down how many ways you can view a player in terms of historical perspective, high school prestige, and even which coaches are recruiting him. They also cover how On3 is changing the way classes are ranked. The new system gives a real-time picture of where any given school projects to finish, not just where they rank at the moment. For example, On3 ranks Penn State differently in their overall team rankings than other sites. Snyder explains the difference and why he's been pushing for this type of ranking system for years now. Next, they get into Snyder's recruiting hot boards for the 2023 class. He explains what they are and why he's tracking recruits this way instead of a full list of all of the offers that Penn State has sent out. He goes through the offensive hot boards and picks out some interesting nuggets from each article that are available at https://www.on3.com/teams/penn-state-nittany-lions/. That conversation turns at the offensive line. T-Frank wants to know why Penn State has so many linemen in the Class of 2022. Is it simply that there were a larger number of good players available? Or is this offensive line coach Phil Trautwein aggressively going after upgrades in his position group to change the depth chart drastically? Snyder and T-Frank give their thoughts and how the 2022 class is affected by 2023. Snyder also says that he's seen the first evidence of the James Franklin rumors influencing recruiting this week. They wrap up the recruiting portion of the show by discussing a mailbag question from Ryan's Friday feature. Which positions are the hardest to recruit? Which positional groups are the hardest to scout? Ryan spoke to several recruiters to get their thoughts on the question, and T-Frank gives his thoughts on the scouting aspect of the question.

On Saturday, the Penn State Nittany Lions football team faces the Maryland Terrapins in a key game for both teams. The winner will climb to .500 in conference play, while the other will sink into the basement of the Big Ten East. What sort of practice did Penn State have last night? Host Thomas Frank Carr and senior editor Nate Bauer were both at practice last night and give their impression of the mood, and tenor of the team.  In fact, their differentiating views spark a debate about how Penn State should view the game coming up with Maryland, and how the three-game losing stream may, or may not play into that. They also briefly touch on backup Ta'Quan Roberson, who was at practice this week after after being described as limited last week. Then, they take questions from fans on Twitter about the team as they head into the final month of play. The questions include:  -Does Mike Yurcich have the players on the roster to execute the schemes and plays he wants? Or is there a difference between what he would call and what he is calling?  -Will Caziah Holmes see time at running back at any point during the season?  Then, T-Frank and Bauer delve into a relatively broad topic about team identity. What do you do when can't do what you want to do? How do you adjust? They bring the topic up to discuss both Penn State, who has struggled during the middle part of the season, and Maryland who has had their own unique problems, especially on defense.  From there they take that conversation and apply it directly to the game. How will those identity problems for both teams shape the way this game plays out? T-Frank finally offers a firm stance on what he thinks Penn State will be able to do offensively against a Maryland defense that struggles to stop the big play.  #PennState #NittanyLions JOIN Blue White Illustrated: https://www.on3.com/teams/penn-state-nittany-lions/join/?plan=annual SUBSCRIBE to Blue White Illustrated on YouTube and enable alerts - new highlights and videos uploaded regularly: https://www.youtube.com/c/bluewhiteillustratedvideo?sub_confirmation Bookmark our homepage: https://www.on3.com/teams/penn-state-nittany-lions/ Subscribe to BWI Magazine and Newsletters: http://bluewhiteonline.com Download our podcasts: https://bluewhiteillustrated.podbean.com/ Like us on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/BlueWhiteIllustrated/ Follow us on Twitter https://twitter.com/PennStateOn3

Yes, I listened to all 3 hours of this episode so you don't have to. However, there are so many fantastic nuggets, I still highly recommend it to any podcaster. We align on virtually everything, from his simple approach to gear, to handling guests and prepping for episodes. But like you, I was most curious on how Tim's brilliance had been applied to growing his show.  In some areas I was surprised, and I'll give you my overall conclusions at the end, but for now let's dig into the nitty gritty.  Here are the Tim Ferris Top Tactics for Podcast Growth…. Podcast interviews  Meaning you being a guest on other podcasts, which is foundational to the MicroFamous system. Tim's best advice here was to be explicit in sending people to your podcast. “If you don't, there's not an automatically high conversion rate.” It's easy to forget that, and end up plugging a book or a lead magnet. And there's nothing wrong with that.  But if your goal is to grow your podcast by giving interviews on other podcasts, don't send people to 5 other things. Send them to your podcast and make it clear that's the best way to connect with you.  Now, if you're really good at getting people off podcasts and into your email list, keep doing that.  Over the long haul, I believe an email subscriber is worth more than a podcast subscriber, because an email subscriber will get your podcast episode via email and have plenty of chances to subscribe to your podcast. So I think there are 2 lessons here. First is not to forget to send people to your podcast in the quest to give them a bunch of options to connect with you.  Second is to sprinkle in mentions of your podcast naturally into any conversations you have on other podcasts. So people know about your podcast even before you get to the end where you can give a call-to-action.  Email & Newsletters  This one surprised me a little, but as Tim put it, “They're only one link click away from the action you want them to take.”  So email is still incredibly powerful and if you have a podcast, make sure to incorporate your podcast into your email strategy. Tim obviously came into podcasting with a large and engaged email list he'd built up for years, which is a great advantage. But all of us have an email list of some kind, and it still remains one of the best ways to promote our podcast, so don't neglect it. Yes that means sending new episodes to your list, but it can also mean tactics like: - adding your podcast episodes into your initial follow up sequences - recording certain podcast episodes specifically for your email list or email follow up system - creating special short-run podcast series which can then be offered to your email list on top of your normal level of communication with your list.  Andre Chaperon and Digital Marketer are both good at this, where they offer a certain email series with a specific goal. Each email is numbered and has a set limit so people know exactly what to expect, and it's delivered on top of normal communication with their list. Now I'll interject that with all the inbox filtering going on, the more authentic and personal your emails are, the better. Dean Jackson and Andre Chaperon are my personal email heroes, and inside our agency we've nudged our clients in the direction of super personal, less branded emails.  Big Name Guests  Tim has a big caveat here, and I'll paraphrase: A no-name guest with good content will beat a mediocre celebrity guest every time. Which I completely agree with. We booked Grant Cardone on a client's podcast a couple years back. It was so bad the client called me afterward and said, “I don't even know if I can release that episode.” And it did nothing for his podcast in terms of podcast downloads. So as Tim pointed out, chasing big name guests can be

Join BW at On3I: https://www.on3.com/teams/penn-state-nittany-lions/join/?plan=annual Host of the BWI Daily Edition Thomas Frank Carr is joined by Emily Giambalvo of the Washington Post to discuss Penn State football's next opponent, the Maryland Terrapins. This weekend, Penn State and Maryland square off in College Park for a critical game between two teams at a crossroads deep into the season. Both are 5-3 and 2-3 in Big 10 play where injuries to key positions have played a major role. After discussing the season in broad terms they dive into the depth chart to get a better understanding of how quarterback Taulia Tagovailoa has performed so far this season. Giambalvo notes that while he's had some big moments, there have been some struggles with consistency for the second-year starter. T-Frank also asks if he's improved since the poor performance against Iowa where he threw three interceptions in the first half.   Tagovailoa hasn't had a lot of help recently due to a rash of injuries at the receiver position. Giambalvo fills T-Frank in on who has stepped up in the absence of Dontay Demus Jr. and Jeshaun Jones, both of whom are done for the season. Is it next man up? Or has Maryland shifted where they're throwing the ball with a void of experience on the boundary?  They then discuss the running game and how Mike Locksley's team has a similar problem to that of James Franklin's when it comes to consistently having a threat on the ground.  Next, they shift their focus to the defense and look at the defensive line. Giambalvo does not think that Maryland has been good at stopping the run but does that mean Penn State will be able to take advantage of that weakness? T-Frank asks about the depth at the defensive line and the ability to maintain their level of play throughout games.  Injuries have once again bitten the Terps, with several key players in the secondary missing large stretches of the season. How has that changed the way they defend? And what exactly does Maryland want their identity to be on defense? Giambalvo and T-Frank discuss the pros and cons of Maryland's defensive approach given their talent level and ability to play that particular style consistently.  They wrap up by looking at the major matchups that will decided the game and trying to determine which will be the most important in determining the outcome of the game. T-Frank wraps up by asking Emily what she's working on this week and what fans should look out for from her.  Join BWI: https://www.on3.com/teams/penn-state-nittany-lions/join/?plan=annual SUBSCRIBE to Blue White Illustrated on YouTube and enable alerts - new highlights and videos uploaded regularly: https://www.youtube.com/c/bluewhiteillustratedvideo?sub_confirmation Bookmark our homepage: http://bluewhiteillustrated.com/ Subscribe to BWI Magazine and Newsletters: http://bluewhiteonline.com Download our podcasts: https://bluewhiteillustrated.podbean.com/ Like us on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/BlueWhiteIllustrated/

Penn State faces Big 10 East foe Maryland on Saturday in College Park hoping to stop a three-game losing streak. Host of the BWI Daily Edition, and film analyst for Blue White Illustrated, Thomas Frank Carr brings his unique look at the Terrapins after watching several of their games on film this season. He points out just how similarly the two offenses are built and how they try to accomplish the same things through the same means. He also takes a look at the signal callers for each team and how they compare in those systems. From there he compares the running games, their output, and how each offensive line is built. The differences, according to T-Frank are on the defensive side of the ball. Penn State is better in several key areas. Maryland has a slightly different philosophy in how they want to play in the defensive secondary, which has hurt them at times this year. Finally he wraps up by judging the strengths and weaknesses of each team and how those might play out on the field this weekend.

Meet our guest, Dr. Brent Jackson, the Vice President/Chief Medical Officer at Mercy General Hospital, a Dignity Health Facility in Sacramento, California. Dr. Brent had been a Practicing General Surgeon for 15 years before moving to administrative roles. In this episode, I sit with Dr. Jackson and discuss the healthcare industry in regards to burnout, the importance of taking time to recharge outside work, as well as dynamics of teamwork, and defining quality metrics. Top Takeaways [00:20] With a positive mindset, it's amazing what people can accomplish when they put their minds to something. [01:45] Burnout is insidious, and the deeper you get in it, the more blind you get; this was the major reason behind Dr. Brent's move from clinical practice into an administrative role. [07:00] Losing the autonomy of private personal practice was one of the factors responsible for burnout. If you reflect and see that you've become your career, you're probably on your way to burnout. You need to take time away from your career and develop outside interests. [14:30] The definition of a team is a small group of individuals with a shared goal who have mutual trust and accountability. When you bring a team together, you need to focus on developing relationships with them and encouraging them to develop relationships with one another. Also, often allow for shared decision-making, then they have ownership of it. [16:53] Best 'Aha' moment: While taking time off work, Dr. Brent had realized he always wanted to do an MBA, and finally had time to do it. [23:35] Current changes in healthcare: Error prevention is becoming critical, with new high-reliability organizational principles and tools being implemented. [28:40] The healthcare industry needs to be more geared towards defining quality for the upcoming quality leaders. We need to spend more time finding good metrics for defining good quality. [32:25] Newsletters and giving awards to recognize efforts and inspire. [36:00] Best career advice: Listen more and ask more questions. [37:57] Personal habit for leadership success: When trying to solve a problem, it is important to ask 'who are the right people to pool together and what are the right questions to ask?' [39:25] Professional society recommendations; A.C.H.E and Becker's Healthcare Conference [41:23] A personal goal-setting process: It is important to identify your goal, what are the stories to get there and what is the timeline. [42:55] Book recommendation: "The Busy Leader's Handbook" by Quint Studer. [46:24] Dr. Brent's message to himself: To himself in the past "Don't become your career", and to his future self "Are you there? How do you like it where you are?" [48:46] Final advice from Dr. Brent: when you put a project together identify who will be impacted by it, and take their workflows into account to manage the impact. If you often have shared decision-making and engagement of the stakeholders, you will have organic adoption as opposed to resistance. Key Quotes: "Whether you think you can, or you think you can't, you're right" - Henry Ford "Work to live, don't live to work" "A team creates something that is greater than the sum of the individual components, whereas the work just creates the sum of the individual components" "That's the mark of good leadership; it's 'how many leaders can you produce?' " "When you have the drive and you get the recharge, you'll get it done" "If you don't know where you're going, you can't define the steps to get there" "'Some' is not a number and 'soon' is not a time" Connect: Find | Dr. Brent Jackson On LinkedIn --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/healthcarequalitycast/message

They examine the performance of the receivers as well.  Finally, they get into the running game issues and how Penn State once again did not run the ball well overall. They do point out some areas of improvement, as well as an interesting choice by offensive coordinator Mike Yurcich in his play-calling tendencies.  Next they switch to the defensive side of the ball and discuss the secondary. Does this unit need to be perfect for Penn State to win games? Is it reasonable to ask more of them? They discuss that along with who stood out, good and bad, on Saturday.   They give a good amount of attention to the defensive line, which had a bounce-back performance against Ohio State. Can they keep that up going forward? What about the linebackers? Can they gain some sort of consistency to help the overall play of the defense? They discuss that, and more, to end the show.  Check out On3: https://www.on3.com/teams/penn-state-nittany-lions/ SUBSCRIBE to Blue White Illustrated on YouTube and enable alerts - new highlights and videos uploaded regularly: https://www.youtube.com/c/bluewhiteillustratedvideo?sub_confirmation Bookmark our homepage: http://bluewhiteillustrated.com/ Subscribe to BWI Magazine and Newsletters: http://bluewhiteonline.com Download our podcasts: https://bluewhiteillustrated.podbean.com/ Like us on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/BlueWhiteIllustrated/

Despite an 0-2 skid in the middle of the Big 10 season, Penn State is still pushing strong on the recruiting trail for the Class of 2023. Rivals recruiting insider Ryan Snyder joins the BWI Daily Edition to log another FutureCast for the Class of 2023, the second in as many weeks.  Host Thomas Frank Carr takes a look Joshua Miller, the most recent player that Snyder has put a pick in for Penn State and tries to give Nittany Lion fans a glimmer of hope about the offense going forward. The two discuss the player and his situation heading into an announcement date of Nov. 2. Next they discuss the decommitment of Jordan Allen, a three-star cornerback prospect out of Louisiana. T-Frank asks Ryan for a quick breakdown of the timeline and what happened, but they spend most of their time focusing on what happens next for the Class of 2022 and how Penn State can use that particular scholarship. Ryan also gives T-Frank his thoughts on how much this turn of events stings for the Nittany Lions on a scale of one to five.  Next they take a look at the stretch run for Penn State recruiting and what sort of December and January that staff is in store for this winter. Snyder brings up a new name of a top offensive lineman prospect that has popped up on the Nittany Lions' radar in recent weeks as well.  Finally, T-Frank and Snyder discuss how James Franklin's response to the rumors this week has either calmed the fears, or left commits feeling uneasy about the future of Franklin at Penn State.  After wrapping up recruiting, they get into Ryan's best bets of the weekend. The games include:  North Carolina At Notre Dame (-4) Michigan (-4) At Michigan State Florida Vs. Georgia (-14) Kentucky At Miss State (Pick Em) Ole Miss At Auburn (-2) Texas At Baylor (-3) Penn State At Ohio State (-18.5) SUBSCRIBE to Blue White Illustrated on YouTube and enable alerts - new highlights and videos uploaded regularly: https://www.youtube.com/c/bluewhiteillustratedvideo?sub_confirmation Bookmark our homepage: http://bluewhiteillustrated.com/ Subscribe to BWI Magazine and Newsletters: http://bluewhiteonline.com Download our podcasts: https://bluewhiteillustrated.podbean.com/ Like us on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/BlueWhiteIllustrated/ Follow us on Twitter https://twitter.com/BWIonRivals

Penn State football is 0-2 over its last two game weeks and is now staring down a matchup with fifth-ranked Ohio State in Columbus on Saturday.  While you may have seen the lopsided scores that the Buckeyes have been piling up over the last several weeks, host Thomas Frank Carr takes you deeper into the Buckeyes depth chart with Bill Rabinowitz of the Columbus Dispatch.  Rabinowitz joins the BWI Daily Edition to give a closer look at Ohio State's offense, defense, and coaches as he tells you just how this season has gone for head coach Ryan Day's team.  They start on the offensive side of the ball with redshirt freshman quarterback CJ Stroud and take a look at his season to date. The young signal-caller had some bumps to start the season, but Rabinowitz explains why that was the case and what has happened since he sat against Akron early in the season.   From there T-Frank asks Rabinowitz if this is the most talented group of pass-catchers that Ohio State has had in recent memory. Does he think so? And what separates this group from the teams of the past?   After that, the pair moves on to talk about the Ohio State offensive line and how talented they are up front. A line shuffle this offseason created a unique group of players up front and Rabinowitz tells T-Frank what he thinks of their potential as a unit.   While discussing the running game, Rabinowitz compares freshman running back TreVeyon Henderson, not to a former Ohio State player at his position, but rather one that might surprise Penn State fans.   They then shift their focus to the defense and how it's changed since secondary coach Matt Barnes took over play-calling duties mid-season. There's one key area that Ohio State has improved according to Rabinowitz and he says it's helped a young group of defenders.    Speaking of that group, is there a player that can contend with Jahan Dotson? Rabinowitz gives his thoughts. What about up front? Is there another Joey Bosa or Nick Young on the way for the Buckeyes that the Nittany Lions have to deal with? The group along the defensive line is built differently than in the past according to Rabinowitz and he thinks their strengths lie in more than just one player.   Finally they wrap up by looking at the linebackers and then discussing if Penn State's offense can produce enough points to keep up with Ryan Day's squad.  SUBSCRIBE to Blue White Illustrated on YouTube and enable alerts - new highlights and videos uploaded regularly: https://www.youtube.com/c/bluewhiteillustratedvideo?sub_confirmation Bookmark our homepage: http://bluewhiteillustrated.com/ Subscribe to BWI Magazine and Newsletters: http://bluewhiteonline.com Download our podcasts: https://bluewhiteillustrated.podbean.com/ Like us on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/BlueWhiteIllustrated/ Follow us on Twitter https://twitter.com/BWIonRivals

Note: James Franklin clarified during his Tuesday press conference that he had changed agents during the summer and it was being released now. He also did not respond with "yes" or "no" when asked directly if he was committed to being the head coach at Penn State beyond 2021.    News broke last night that Penn State Head Coach James Franklin had hired mega-agent Jimmy Sexton so host of the BWI Daily Edition Thomas Frank Carr is joined by BWI Writer Dave Eckert to discuss the implications of the move. Does it mean that there's fire to the smoke of Franklin's name being mentioned in high-profile jobs around the country? Is there significance to the timing of that release? They give their thoughts and examine how Penn State fans should feel about that move.    After the loss to Illinois and a game with Ohio State looming, Dave and T-Frank take a look at the recent bowl projections and where Penn State may land in post-season play.   Next they take a look at the upcoming game against Ohio State and what the opening line of 17.5 points in the Buckeye's favor means for Penn State. Does Dave think that it's a fair line? What would change Dave's mind on Penn State's chances this upcoming weekend. T-Frank pushes back on the idea that Penn State is as bad as they showed last Saturday for several key reasons. They discuss the pros and cons of what Penn State should do on both sides of the ball as well.    Finally they take a quick look at winter sports including Micah Shrewsberry's media day press conference and Dave gives an update on the hockey team's progress early in the season.    SUBSCRIBE to Blue White Illustrated on YouTube and enable alerts - new highlights and videos uploaded regularly: https://www.youtube.com/c/bluewhiteillustratedvideo?sub_confirmation Bookmark our homepage: http://bluewhiteillustrated.com/ Subscribe to BWI Magazine and Newsletters: http://bluewhiteonline.com Download our podcasts: https://bluewhiteillustrated.podbean.com/ Like us on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/BlueWhiteIllustrated/ Follow us on Twitter https://twitter.com/BWIonRivals

Thomas Frank Carr, the host of the BWI Daily Edition, gives you some of his observations of Penn State's game plan and execution throughout the loss. He starts on the offensive side of the ball and looks at the team's apparent game plan of running the football early and often. Did they accomplish that? Why can't the Nittany Lions get movement on the ground? T-Frank takes a look at the players upfront and their performance in certain schemes versus others. He also offers some suggestions about changes up front that might help. Next, he takes a look at the defensive side of the ball and how the Nittany Lions are constructed upfront. The way Penn State has lost players on the defensive line, along with a lack of depth in some key areas, highlighted the team's inability to play in close, ugly games that rely on the ground game by both teams.

If I'm gonna fail, I'm gonna fail big. Let's just go on.”[00:00:29] Nathan:In this episode I talk to Kimberly Brooks. She is a fine artist. So, painting, she has all of her art in galleries, that whole world, which is super fascinating to me. She also plays in the creative world. Newsletters, podcasts, and interviews.She built the whole art editorial section of the Huffington Post. She built that to millions of readers. She's done all kinds of things in the design community from the early days. So, we riff on that; Mad Men-style ad agencies in the ‘80s and ‘90s.

How she sets up her sequences, and everything else, and things that people can learn from fine art, and apply to their email newsletters and sequences.So, it's a fun episode. We have to do a part two, because we filled up all the time we had, and I think I only got through half my questions.So, anyway, I'm going to get out of the way and dive in. So, here we go.Kimberly, welcome to the show.[00:01:37] Kimberly:Thank you for having me, Nathan.[00:01:39] Nathan:There's so many things I to talk about, because you come to the creator world from a different perspective than I do, though we both share a love for Photoshop.[00:01:50] Kimberly:Oh, yeah.[00:01:51] Nathan:We'll start with where we met. It was at Craft and Commerce, some number of years ago.I can't even think. Three years ago? Four?[00:02:01] Kimberly:I think it was three years ago, and it was such a random whim. I don't even know how I ended up finding it. I fell in rabbit hole. And then I came upon ConvertKit.I was actively looking for a better way to send art show announcements. Because I'm a painter, I'm an artist.I just felt after my previous experiences, I knew how important having a subscriber-based service was. I don't want to get too nerdy, but I didn't really like the competitor who shall remain unnamed. But, I found you guys, and I started getting the advertisement for the conference, and it was in Boise, Idaho.And so I thought, I'll just go. It was like a Ted conference for really creative nerdy people like me, but it was exactly what I was wanting. It was about marketing, which is really such a weird word because it's really about sharing, and I loved the title.I loved everything about it. I met some of the people that I'm really, really close with now. Then the next year it was canceled because of the pandemic, but it was amazing, and I met you, actually.[00:03:28] Nathan:And, and we had a really fun conversation. one thing that I want to talk about, for you is the intersection between fine art, right. And painting and that world. And then now you're also in this world of being a writer and a creator in the sense, right. You you've been a writer and creative for a long time, but, but it's, it's like a different world of the selling things to your audience.And. Earning money directly in that way. And so I want, like, I want to hear that as you like weave in and out of these two worlds and then just your experience there.[00:04:02] Kimberly:Yeah, it's interesting. I, when I was in elementary school, we had a really competitive game of tetherball constantly going on on the playground. And it was just sort of that pole with a ball attached to a rope we would, people would line up and we would get it, and it was, see how many times, and it was just sort of like, it was very intense and I always felt like being an artist.Being an art to me was it was the pole, you know? So like my pole is art is making art and everything about what I do. I write about it. I interview people about it. I interview other artists about their work. I make paintings 90% of the time in my studio. Like, it's all about art, you know? So that's like the beginning.So I do see myself sashaying between different worlds. And I think everybody kind of does that. And then as the bicycle of technology was being built to use kind of like a vague reference to like Steve jobs is, you know, what happens if you put a man on a bicycle and you know, like how fast can he, as the bicycle was kind of entering our world, I thought, what if you kind of mixed art with the bicycle?You know, what, what happens if you, you know, Make an artist's website. So I was like one of the first people I knew that made an artist's website. And I remember, it was, I had, was having lunch with my mentor. Who's, the late John Baldessari. He was a great, great, great artist. And, he's famous for, you know, he burned all this stuff and graduate school and then became a conceptual painter, you know, very, you know, Howard work in, you know, conceptual anyway.So I brought my laptop to this Mexican restaurant in Venice, and I said, I wanted to show you something. I made a website and our studios were really near each other. And he said, Oh, I, I don't know if I would do that. If I were you, I was like, why not? He said, because you're, you'll piss off the dealers, the galleries, the galleries, you shouldn't be selling directly.It's going to take away from what their job is. You know, when you hang a show and you have art in the gallery, the gallery is selling the artist and it's their job, you know, and artists are supposed to be kind of this, you know, semi mute, black turtleneck wearing, you know, mysterious, mystical ShawMan goddess.I call it goddess on the hill. Like you're not supposed to really get in the way of what your artists about. And so I thought, oh gosh, you know, this is, and I had put the paintings for a show was about to have. And so I started making, so my postcard for that show had the name of the show and it had the name of the website, cause no galleries had website.Then this is in like the two thousands, you know, this is a long time ago. And I remember meeting people when I handed them a postcard. If like I felt comfortable with them, I would like secretly write a password so that they could see the website,[00:07:20] Nathan:Oh was you were, you had the website, but it was[00:07:24] Kimberly:Yeah. So I password protected it. I password protected it because John Baldessari told me that it's probably not a good idea to have a website.This is again, no artists ad website.[00:07:35] Nathan:How did the galleries and the community[00:07:37] Kimberly:The galleries didn't have websites either. And the galleries, I remember. They started it. Like some of them had websites, but it was super janky. It was like sometimes most of the time they did an, and it was just sort of this mysterious world that 99.9, nine, 9% of the public didn't understand.Doesn't understand it's better now. And you'd have to be walking down the street or you'd have to know somebody who knows somebody, you know, it's, it was just a different world then.[00:08:08] Nathan:But did any of those negative things come about? Like, did anyone look down on you on it for having a website and for[00:08:14] Kimberly:No, no, no. Eventually I just said, screw it. And I took the password off.And, interestingly, I don't want to date myself, but I think I already have, but the at the time flash was very. sexy. And it was like, and so artists would have, if they did have website, firstly, they would be horribly designed and they would have like a flash animation of a curtain opening and a door.And it was very like CD rom mentality. Like, you know, it was pre-internet thinking, you know, anyway, like I said, the big nerd here.[00:08:48] Nathan:Flash was big until 2000, like the iPhone 2007.[00:08:52] Kimberly:Until Steve jobs killed it, just took a knife. He took a sword and he just, during a keynote, just, you know,[00:09:01] Nathan:Yeah. Oh, and the two biggest reasons were, that the bandwidth of the phones couldn't handle it. And then also the battery life on the phones couldn't handle it.[00:09:10] Kimberly:Wasn't there another reason there was another technical reason that had to do with plays well with others. I can't remember exactly what it was,[00:09:20] Nathan:Yeah. I mean, it was a restricted technology. Like it was owned Macromedia. And so probably that apple was trying to do to get to play. And Adobe was playing hardball and apple was probably like, okay,[00:09:31] Kimberly:Yeah,[00:09:32] Nathan:You know, we'll play this[00:09:33] Kimberly:Yeah. It was, was, it was, it was just the evolution of, you know, of Photoshop and Adobe products. And so I grew up with Adobe. I learned I was an early adopter, always, you know, I just sort of like analogy. Yeah.[00:09:49] Nathan:I want to dive into all kinds of things. I want to talk about, more in the financial world and the business of that and everything else. But back and maybe start earlier in your career.[00:10:01] Kimberly:Than elementary school.[00:10:04] Nathan:I guess we didn't go to elementary school a little bit after elementary school. What what did the early days of your career look like[00:10:12] Kimberly:I was a, you know, I'm a first, or I guess I'm a second generation American, so, and I'm Jewish. So of course I was supposed to be a doctor. So my, we used to get, you can be anything you want just as long as you're a surgeon first. So I got the makings of a woman's surgeon and, you know, it was just like, as a book that was a book that I received many times in my middle school years.And then, you know, it was like, that's great, you're so talented. But you know, you really, you know, after you get out of medical school, you can, it was just sort of what you did in my family. And, and my father he was a well-known surgeon and he became an, I don't want to say artist. He became a writer, so he's a well-known writer.And he started writing. So he kind of became an artist before my eyes, you know, so as I was getting out, as I was graduating college, he published his first bestselling. That was just, and I would like sit at the book, you know, when he gave a lecture at an art gallery, because it was called art and physics.His name is Leonard Shlain so I would like sell, watch him, sell the books, you know, like give a lecture and then I would check out and I would get, take people's cash and then give them a book, you know, at the end of the lecture. And he used to tell me, he used to say, honey, you have to be shameless.You have to be willing to just talk in front of four people. It doesn't matter. You just need to do it. If it's just, it was just a big, it did. It made an imprint on me because I was watching him grow out of his own discomfort zone, which I still struggle with of talking to people like instead of through your paintings or, you know, talking to an audience saying being on video, it took me six months to figure out how to be on video, but I'm getting ahead of it.So you asked me like my CR about my career. So I was an English major. I went to an English, major architecture, minor at UC Berkeley. And at the time that I was graduating, painting was considered dead. And I know that that for artists today, they don't quite appreciate that. But after abstract expressionism, there was sort of this mood in the art world that everything had been done and like, forget about figuration was the last thing people wanted to see, you know, and I wanted to paint people.So I just figured, okay, I'm going to just do that on my own, but I'm going to, I love reading. I love writing. So I became an English major and I was valedictorian of, of the UC Berkeley English department. And so my first job, I wanted to combine my love for art and literature. So my first job was.Design. So my, so I, was mentored by a gentleman named Walter Lander, who is the founder of landlord associates. And he was sort of the west coast, Milton Glaser, Milton Glaser from a design point of view, like he was, he just recently passed in the last five or so years, but he like did the, I love New York, you know, like he's this famous, famous graphic designer because the field of graphic design is, is relatively new.It's relatively, it's like a century old, you know, like th the serious field of it. And Walter was a pioneer in it. And he did, you know, my first job was like working cause I, cause I minored in architecture was, helping design the shell oil, gas station, you know,So I was doing like architecture design, and then he asked me to write speeches.And so they had, their company was kind of designed like a brain. So they had like a language division and they had like the design division, like they did the loose soon milk and they were so famous then such leaders. They had 1800 people in offices all over the world and it was like a big deal. And they had an office on a ferry boat.So that was my first job out of college. I was a speech writer for Walter and I was in the, I was in the word department. Like I think I designed, I helped name, a cigarette, you know, like was just a weird, but it was fascinating, you know? And it was meeting fascinating people. The grateful dead would like come over on the boat after it was, it was, it was a wild time at, in San Francisco in the late eighties, early nineties.Totally wild. So, So I was like, so all the designers are starting to learn Photoshop. So there was this thing called Photoshop because they were doing everything by hand, you know? And then I was like, oh, so I got Photoshop 1.0, you know, and then I had th there was no layers. So you had to do everything in alpha channels.And it's interesting just to be a big nerd. Cause you're a designer too, right? I mean that's yeah. Yeah. So if you can try to imagine there was Photoshop without layers, it meant that you had to do everything inside the masking tool that's built in that nobody really uses or knows about now called alpha channels.So I had to create everything using masks, but it was very oddly more similar to what you did with your Exacto knife and ruler, know, I still think one of the biggest, the saddest things about Photoshop. I mean, I think everybody should know it, but it has some feature bloat, but I think it kind of buries the power of alpha channels.And I think that if people knew how to use it, it would like, it's like a little thing to know that would hugely leap them out of the more artificial aspects of doing those filters on things.[00:16:00] Nathan:Right.[00:16:01] Kimberly:Anyway, like I you have to be careful with me because I can go into real. I can crawl real deep into these nerdy things.But anyway,[00:16:08] Nathan:Are there other things from those early days of, of the graphic design art agency, like that kind of world, that you still take with you today[00:16:19] Kimberly:Thousands of Gillian percent. One of them is the four DS that every project is discover, design develop, deploy. And I know I lost that. I also saw that, like, if you could name it, you could charge it.[00:16:32] Nathan:Is there a story behind that? If you could name it, you could charge for it.[00:16:35] Kimberly:You know, you'd see these hundreds of thousands of million dollar contracts going out to these major people. And I used to have to help write the proposals and I would see how they would divide they'd phase out, like a lot of designers. Again, I don't, I hope we're so not too off topic, but a lot of designers will not charge for discovery.You know what I mean? Because they haven't named it. They didn't name it They'd Just be like, oh, let me Research all about your company. And then you're going to pay me to give you some designs, and then I'll give you the designs and then hopefully they're smarter. Anyway, like I said, big, big topic.[00:17:10] Nathan:Yeah. But think there are a lot of people listening who are in the either freelance or agency space and they, provide services to newsletters or creators or they're growing their own on the side. And I think it's a really important point that, if you're if you're structuring your proposals and all your interactions with clients around the deliverable, then you're failing to talk about a substantial portion of the work And probably the part of the work that differentiates you from the other freelancers who are just like, oh, you need a logo. And they dive like right into Photoshop or whatever tool. Whereas if you're good at what you do, you're probably taking a step back and looking at the whole landscape and spending probably more than half of your time in that Research discovery and learning stage rather than the deliverable stage.[00:17:56] Kimberly:It's actually the most important time intensive stage of any project. And so not just design. I mean, I think you saw my Ted talk, the creative process in eight stages. And I think I talked about how as an artist, I don't want to give anybody whiplash, but like you, as an artist, you have, a period of time where it's like a rest in music where you don't, you're not making work.It doesn't look like you're doing anything on the outside, but that's the most important part. And it's when. Gathering, but you're doing it in a subconscious, like in many different ways when I'm, when I'm making a painting, I'm having to listen a lot, you know, you have to listen and look and just inhale before you can exhale.So anyway, that, but I mean, we could, I think, I think we could do a whole hour on Landour. Cause that was just a, such an interesting, you know? And, and I was actually, I was actually there, I dunno. Well, you're, you probably weren't born, but there was a, Coke released a new design and they, they, and Landour was the leader of this new design.And I was like in the boardroom, in my. In pantyhose. Cause that's what we that's what, like you had aware that it was very far, it was like mad men. It was like mad men where like everybody smoked and the women were gorgeous and the men would like have these glass offices on the side of the boat. And they would like go in and light up a cigarette and call London, you know, like they were like, or Japan and, and they had, it was just extreme, chic, crazy environment, very male dominated.And I was like, I'll often the lone woman in a room, you know, but anyway, that's a separate side conversation and they were introducing the new Coke and it was a flop. It was like, it was like, there was a backlash against the new design because it had like big fat. It was like, whereas the old Coke kind of has that Victorian, which they still use now that, that very Sarah fee or Nate almost like your create above your head, but more, you know, whereas.Where the new version they were doing was super kind of chunky. It was like new Coke, you know, anyway. But, it was a wild experience. I wrote an essay about it and I'll, I'll give it to you if you, if[00:20:35] Nathan:Yeah, we'll put it the Shona[00:20:36] Kimberly:Yeah,[00:20:38] Nathan:On time on that.[00:20:39] Kimberly:Yeah, no, the whole, here's the thing. I wanted to be an artist, and a lot of times I believe a lot of, and I believe there's a lot of people who have an artist inside them and a lot of times they will, work in a field that brings them near art decisions to make themselves feel better.That they're not being an actual artist. And I was one of those people.[00:21:08] Nathan:Okay. So how did that play out for you of your you're close to the design and that sort of[00:21:14] Kimberly:I was like, yeah, it was, I couldn't be closer. I was like, I was like in, I was behind the curtain of Oz doing the, with the, with the best people and everything. Again, this is so long ago, but, but I felt like technology at the time, again, Photoshop was just starting. There was no whatever. I was like, you know, I needed, I need a break.I need to like push the table over. So I quit. I moved to Paris to paint for a year. I played piano in bars at night. That was like a whole other wild. We could do a whole show on that, but, you know, then I was like, well, I can't, I'm not going to be able to make a living doing this. Like I was painting, I was sitting at the sore bone and I was like, I had this little gig in this bar, but it was a couple of Franks and I wasn't legal in Paris.And I just had this big because of my literature background I have does such a, you know, I love you. I was so somewhat of afraid.[00:22:11] Nathan:So how old were you when you[00:22:14] Kimberly:I was in my early twenties.[00:22:16] Nathan:Okay. When you, quit and said it's time to do painting.[00:22:20] Kimberly:Yeah. I was like, it wasn't a straight line. And that's another thing. Like most artists don't like some artists grow up and everybody goes, oh, you're so talented.Which by the way, like hate that expression. I must like tell people, like don't ever tell people they're talented. Say you have great raw material, you know, just say, you know, just like great mom material, but like, you have to like do it for eight hours a day in order to like express something. Great. And then, then we'll talk about talent, but in any case, so some people have parents that say, you're honey, you're so talented.I want to send you to art school. I want to spend a couple hundred grand and I'm going to send you to art school. Undergrad, let's say a good, let's say a typical artist, a college education is this amount. And then I want you to get an MFA from Yale or the best school and have that checked off. And then I want you to go get in galleries and be an artist there's 0.01% of artists have that route.They have parents that say, we support this. This is good. This is a good plan. I would say that's like a very rarefied small group. Cause you have to have, well, there's so many things that need to happen in order to have that setup. Most people, most artists, even artists that I know, like one of my good friends Enrique he was a PA getting his PhD in physics read my dad's book, art and physics and decided he wanted to be a painter[00:23:49] Nathan:Okay,[00:23:50] Kimberly:So like, there's a whole bunch of artists that were doctors that were lawyer, you know, that, that, that they, they were catching the train of you know, the I'm a good student, I'm a diligent worker and they, they, you get routed onto a track and then you're on that track. And then suddenly you wake up at at 30 or whatever, and you say, you know, I'm here and I'm super successful, but this isn't necessarily really how I want to be spending my time.You know? I mean, th this is the conversation, right? You know, how do you, how do you decide and what you can want changes in your life? You know, but if you know what you're pull, the tether poll is like, if you know what, your deep inner core desires. are And, you know, and you, you have, you're remotely in touch with that and you, you need to go, you need to go towards that light.You need to go towards that center then everything will radiate out from you afterwards.[00:24:58] Nathan:Was there a catalyst that pushed you, you know, you were thinking about it, you're feeling this, but what was the thing that made you go like, all right, I'm[00:25:06] Kimberly:Well, okay. Like I said, we don't have enough time to get into all of this, but there were, I made three huge dramatic, you know what? I don't know. Maybe it's a Monty Python movie, I don't know. But like when you push the table over and you throw all the plates and you break everything, like you just come, it's not a reboot, it's way more violent than that.Just kind of like you take the tablecloth out and you just say I'm out of here. You know, I think I did that three times before I got closer to. You know what it is. And one of them was moving to LA after moving to Paris, I moved to New York and then, then I moved to LA and I was like, okay, this time is going to be it I'm being artist.Like, and you know, it's a couple of years later, it's after Paris. Like, you know, cause you have to get, you have to, I had to make money. You know, I had to make a, I had to have a job. And so I had to kind of like do, do design work and stuff like that. So when I moved to LA, my first, I went to a Mac conference, like it was like 60 booths.It was so small, like Mac was seen a teeny little thing and, and Microsoft was the big thing windows and,[00:26:18] Nathan:Yeah.[00:26:19] Kimberly:And I made a business cards and I said, it said artist. And then when I, I walked, went to this conference and I was practically like often the only woman, you know, and I would say, yeah, I'm an artist.And I know. And so the first job I got was making the first CD rom for apple computer that they said distributed to every single apple. So they distributed over 2 million copies worldwide, and my name was on it. And that kind of, that was a huge breakthrough because suddenly I was being offered insane jobs.And next thing you know, I was anyway, like, I don't want to dwell on this because we haven't talked about newsletters yet.[00:27:01] Nathan:That is okay. that is okay. So you just made a leap from, I went to this conference to,[00:27:08] Kimberly:Yeah, by the way speaking, we started with going to a conference.Yeah.[00:27:12] Nathan:A big deal. We are we talking about that as well, but this leap from going to the conference to your work, being on the CD,[00:27:19] Kimberly:Well, so they were, it was like, again, I was on the bleeding edge. I could not explain to my father Who would come down and visit me. In the warehouse. I, it was, it was an artist and a coder who, but they had both met in art school and they brought me on to be the creative director.And it was like, it was almost no money at first. And then it became like a bigger thing and apple, the more that apple saw it, the more they were like, wow, this is really good. so then the next conference I went to was in San Francisco was Macworld and my art was everywhere, everywhere, and I got job offers from Imagineering. They wanted me to design why the Disney, they wanted to be the head. Of Warner music was doing a new interactive division and digital don't digital.I can't remember the names, but it was very, it was a very heady time. It was very, it was very fun. I felt like, wow, I found this place that has it's the intersection of art design, narrative and technology. And it was exactly where I want it to be. And that was just, that was sort of, and I set up an easel in my office, I had a lot of people working for me and it was just, it got very, it got very fancy, you know, and I, and I took a lot of, I took a lot of like what I knew at Landour to attach in this before email this before the internet.[00:28:45] Nathan:You're talking early nineties at this point,[00:28:48] Kimberly:Yeah. Like you no, like a mid yeah. Mid nineties, you know, 96, maybe. So, yeah. So I took a lot of my, knowledge that I gleaned from working at land or like the discover design develop, deploy to whip these engineers and designers into shape, you know? And anyway, I was still stalking what I really wanted to do, you know?[00:29:10] Nathan:Okay. So tell me more about the difference between what you wanted to do and what you were doing, because you just described your art being on everything.[00:29:17] Kimberly:No, no, no, actually, honestly, honestly like I would listen to like Liz fairs, exile in Guyville, as I drove downtown by the toy factory in downtown Los Angeles back and forth, like every day, like at these, I was a big album listener.And when I was designing, I would listen to full albums and I was just like, wow, this is it. I am so excited and energized and everything. then I started studying painting again. So I started so like I had taken a hiatus. And then I got into the, Otis, which is the art school here, You know, when you get professional, when you become a professional in anything, even being an artist, there's a, single-minded rigor focus and clarity. one brings their whole self to what they're doing, you know? And if you know that if If you've been successful in anything else or anything like that, you can, if you bring that to your art, there's literally nothing that can stop.You. You become a wire cutter. It's like, you're going to munch through like, I, you know, really understanding, painting in the deepest way possible. Like I was thinking if I can understand alpha channels, I can figure out how to tone a canvas. You know, just like I just, because painting is a technology, honestly.I took everything in my being to it. And that was like a third moment. Like that was like another moment I skipped some moments, but there was like where I was knocking at the door, knocking at the door. And then I knew that in my art would become the, that I had when I started painting in full force.Like not just having it in my office, but saying this is what I'm going to do. And I'm going to do it as so ferociously, like stand back, everybody, nothing is going to get in my way.[00:31:13] Nathan:So you were painting, I mean, you had is this like painting a few hours a week, a few hours a day, and then you dove into doing that, just like.[00:31:22] Kimberly:This is like 40 hours. I mean, I basically gave myself an assignment and my assignment was I was going to paint a hundred new. Because that's the hardest thing to do as a body. Cause you have to deal with the translucency of skin. And I could literally talk about painting all day, but you have to deal with light form and shadow and thinking in three dimensions and it creates it's.I don't want to knock marketing and technology and the stuff that you do, but painting is that most people do, but painting is a true, like you have to really, it's a very intellectual as well as mindful and spiritual, but it's a very, it's a very deep, deep, deep way to approach the world. And when you become a painter or you actually like listen to the little voice inside you that says that they want to learn this.It's a skill, it's a skill. And when you do that, your brain expands and your world expands and you see things differently. So it's a very transformative thing and it takes years. It takes years and years. So my assignment was I'm going to paint a hundred nudes and, and if I have like 10 good ones, I can have a show.[00:32:41] Nathan:So I want to tie that to maybe the experience that other creators listening would have, or anyone who's on the fence about getting started. Right. It might not be painting that they're trying to do, but they've had these fits and starts of like, I'm going to, learn to code, start a podcast, start a newsletter, any of these things, you know, learning to play an instrument, whatever it is.And then like start and it goes, maybe it goes well for a week or a month, or like what, what advice would you[00:33:11] Kimberly:Isn't there, isn't there like a guru isn't there like a guru in the subject that calls it, the. Who's that guy. Do you know what I'm talking about? Yeah. Somebody told me that, cause I was saying this to somebody and they were like, oh yeah, that's somebody's Seth, Godin's the dip. But yes. You know, when I was younger and all through all through my, you know, middle school and high school and college, I played piano quite seriously.I was a classical pianist and whenever I would learn a difficult piece, I would play it over and over and over again. And I would have to, like, I would start to suck. I would get better, but then I would start to suck and I'd have to walk away and then come back at it the next day before I would be able to play it perfectly.Like, I mean, you know,[00:34:01] Nathan:Yeah.[00:34:04] Kimberly:Learning an instrument actually teaches you this better than anything, because if you make a painting at first and it sucks, you can be easily thwarted, like a, you know, a drawing or whatever. But, but in order to like worry the bone of like how to get that legato, right. And that Greek piano concerto or something like you got to just sort of do it again and again, and again and again, you know, like it's, the fundamental way to learn is you, you imitate, assimilate, and then you can improvise.So you have to like, you play these pieces. And so with anything, you're going to be thwarted in the beginning many times and you can't give up, you have to say, okay, well, I don't care if it even sucks. I don't care if I'm going to fail. If I'm gonna fail, I'm gonna fail big. Like I'm[00:34:52] Nathan:Right[00:34:52] Kimberly:Go all out.Let's just go on.[00:34:54] Nathan:But that specific assignment that you gave yourself of painting 100 nudes, do you think that an assignment like that is a good way to go as a creator of saying this is the commitment that I'm going to make, I'm going to get to a hundred podcast episodes or I'm going to, I don't know, write a hundred blog posts, and then I can decide if this is something I actually want to pursue.[00:35:13] Kimberly:Absolutely. I think that when you make a commitment like that, to devote your energy into building a body of work of any kind in any media, you, your life will change everything. You are going to gain skills that involve every facet of that media. So like, if you're a podcaster and let's say you record in iMovie you're going to learn iMovie or whatever they, whatever they edit podcasts.In And, and I think if, you know, if Leonardo DaVinci were alive today, trusts me. He would know Photoshop He would know he would be all over this stuff, you know, he would love, he would love it in this nether world space, because there's, I'm, I'm going off topic a little bit because there's a little bit of a prejudice in the art world where people were thinking they were resisting the newer technological versions of artwork.But back to process, what you were saying is that if you do something in a committed way and you basically measure it and say, I'm going to do it until I get to this point, I think a hundred might be excessive, but you're going to get the hang of it.[00:36:28] Nathan:Yeah[00:36:28] Kimberly:I mean, I haven't mixed feelings though, about blogging cause I started a blog again, when I was, really getting into.Consuming. I mean, consuming isn't the right word. When I was throwing my entire body into the art world, one of the things that I did to expand my own knowledge was to write about other artists. And I think that's also something that's super unspoken, especially in the art world, because a lot of artists are just saying Me me me I want attention.I want to get people to focus on my show and my work, and I want a gallery and I want this and that. And I think one of the most important, aspects of breaking through to any next level of anything is generosity. Generosity of your attention to other people who are doing the same thing. And that for me, that general, I mean, I didn't think of this.This is red, this is a in retrospect, but at the time when I look back on it, I was airlifting artists that nobody had heard of and writing about them along with other big art, you know? And so I had a successful weekly column where I was keeping a blog again, this was before social media and that's how, and then the Huffington post came along and then I started publishing it, the, having a post.And that's how I said, I was asked by Arianna Huffington to be the, to found an art section. And so I was like, I was perfectly positioned because I was, I was a big nerd. I had had these other experiences. I was a full-on painter. I was having shows galleries the whole thing. And then she was building this incredible Site to celebrate bloggers. And I was one of the bloggers So I had to build an audience from zero to 10 million people within two years. I didn't have to that's what happened.[00:38:26] Nathan:Right.I have so many things that I want to ask about in this, one thing that I want to highlight that you talked about is as you're doing the painting, there's the side of it, of, Research where you're researching other painters, learning from them and all that. Most people keep that Research to themselves, right?That is not a public thing that happens. And I think a lot of the most successful creators that I see are the ones who do that recent. And, and share their notes and share that and work in public and do the interviews and all of that that you were doing. because it does a couple things. One people follow you, not only for your own work, but then also for your notes on other people.And then too, it's incredible for meeting people. Like when you do a profile, either if they're a, say an upcoming artist or someone who's established either way, they're going to be like, when you, you know, when you send them an email, they'll like respond and be interested and engaged. And, you know, I mean, that's a reason that I do this podcast is so that I can meet and hang out with people that I want to more aboutIt's amazing for network.[00:39:30] Kimberly:Yes. I think you're exactly spot on. This is no different than what I did with artists, this, except for I wasn't involving video, I was writing about it and interviewing them. You're right. You're absolutely right. I also think that you can get too carried away with that though. Like you have to be careful, you have to make sure that you're, you know, I can become easily like Clydesdale the horse.I'm like, well, that's another month and I have to do another,[00:39:57] Nathan:It becomes more important than the art, which was the[00:40:00] Kimberly:Well, yeah,[00:40:01] Nathan:It feels more time than[00:40:02] Kimberly:Yeah, yeah. Like, so eventually I had to leave, because it was just sort of eclipsing. It became so much bigger than everything else I was doing that I had to like go, okay, this isn't, you know, I've got a show coming up. I can't devote all this time and energy. And then of course, social media kind of made it all really different.[00:40:24] Nathan:Like in what way?[00:40:25] Kimberly:Well, because not only we could, you know, writing a really thoughtful piece about an artist and looking at their work and, you know, relating it with art history. And I also found that if I could relate it to like a contemporary event, like there was this one painter who painted battle scenes and we were just going to war with Iraq, I think, anyway, we were going to war somewhere.You know, it was a horrible time, but like, I would talk about going, you know, this contemporary news event. And I would link it with the artist who was painting these battle scenes. And then seeing that it went, go.[00:41:04] Nathan:Right.[00:41:04] Kimberly:Was another, that was another big learning lesson is like, if you put a number in a headline, like 10 things, you, you should tell, you know, 10 rules for your kids and screens, you know, then people would read that more.So I could see the analytics of what people clicked on. You know, that was like a interesting learning experience. But when social media happened, then suddenly you also had to tweet it. You had to post it on Facebook and then you had to tweet about it and then it just got to be social media. here's my take, if I could just say one thing, because I want to get it out there.I think social media is great for first impressions so that when people see you for the first time they're going to go that person's like a real artist or they're a real whatever, and they're legit. And they don't just have like three things that they've said about the subject. They've actually like, I trust that they've done some deep things.Like me painting a hundred nudes, you know, like this person knows how to paint.So I think social media, it's just so easy to get carried away. I hope one day it goes away. Is that terrible to say? I think emails should be everything. It should just go away.[00:42:14] Nathan:I don't think it's terrible to say at all. You have something in your Ted talk. you talked about like the compulsion to paint being taken away by your smartphone and these distractions, And I'd love for you to talk about that because I think there's so many things of like, if I'm on Twitter or checking my email, or even interacting with the ConvertKit team 2,700 times a day, you know, it makes it so much harder as a creator.And so I like, I just want to hear more of your experience there.[00:42:45] Kimberly:Well, I mean, in order to even get into my zone mentally to paint, I have to like have at least 90 minutes where I haven't spoken with anybody. Like I just need to kind of like clear it. Like I need to, I mean, I can be in it and I've got all these, you know, because people everybody's different. Some people like beginnings, some people like middles, other people's like ends.So you have to get in touch with which person you are, you know? So I, I love middles and beginning. I actually like all of them, but like, I'm better at certain things. So whenever I go into the studio, I have to start in paintings that are in the middle, that many going on at once. so you have to get in touch with like what time of day you're best at.And I always begin things at the end of the day when I'm already like nice and a well-oiled machine, well-oiled creating Machine.I never begin things in the morning. I always begin. at the end of the day, I never begin paintings in the morning. I was beginning, you know, I mean, I, I'm not, I know I'm not answering your question.Your question is, compartmentalizing your time to protect it away from social media. I teach a master class and I teach a Masterclass with artists who are building their first body of work, or they, they want to build a body of work in the masterclass.I make them take an oath an Instagram oath Instagram is it's so draining psychologically, emotionally, mentally, and the effort that you put into it that you really have to like commit and, and, and artists feel pressure to post their progress and post once a day and stuff like that.And the truth is, that algorithm, the algorithm is so fraught right now because you really only see the last 20 people that you liked more often than not. And you're not, it it's just, it's not healthy. It's not healthy for a visual artist Because you'll be on it. You check it like a diabetic checking their insulin level.It's just like, oh, did it get enough? Likes all that. It's like, Ugh. So I use, later to post once a week because I don't really want to deal with it. So I'll do like four months at a time. But if like I have a museum show opening up on Saturday, so I have to make a post this week. And so that that's like in my brain, oh God, I got to make a post this week.And when my book was coming out, like that's a whole other topic about promote, you know, how to tell people and that a book is coming out. yeah. So I just kind of look at it like, you know, kind of like a creative sinkhole,[00:45:15] Nathan:Yeah. And so it[00:45:15] Kimberly:So it[00:45:15] Nathan:Makes sense to avoid it. I think we hear that advice from a lot of talented creators and it's easy to be like, yeah. Yeah. But I can, I'm the person who can sit down and write with a moment's notice, you know? And then you you get totally stuck on writer's block or whatever thing, because you're like, you actually didn't create that space.And, like you talked about in the Ted talk of that time to like daydream and to actually be there, present with yourself and your thoughts.[00:45:42] Kimberly:Yeah, it's true. I mean, there's this thing in neuroscience called empathetic mirroring. Do you know about[00:45:48] Nathan:I don't know.[00:45:49] Kimberly:It's this, it's like when you see somebody, for example, write on a chalkboard, the neurons in your brain, I'm not going to say this. Right? So if a neuroscientist says I'm like slightly wrong, but like, it, it, it has this effect where you feel like you're doing it, you know, like, and it's, that's why people love to watch people write things.That's why a chalkboard is an excellent device for, I actually have a chalkboard in my office because I started to. Take videos of me make with my talking points of me writing it on a chalkboard, because even though it's considered like, you know, yesteryear technology, it actually helps people receive the information better to see it written[00:46:34] Nathan:Rather than being next[00:46:36] Kimberly:Rather than just show a PowerPoint slide.Yeah. And so this, the act of seeing it rhythm, but so if, if you think about the power of empathetic mirroring, that's going on in your brain, when you look at something happening, think about how much it can pollute your brain. If you're watching a stream of all these things happening in your Instagram feed or your Facebook feed, it's like dangerous.Like you have to be protective of what is going inside your mind. It's that they say like garbage in, garbage out, you know,[00:47:04] Nathan:I want to hear about you getting into the world of, of like teaching classes and that side of it, and then you have a book as well. There's a lot.[00:47:12] Kimberly:Oh yes. So I have this book,[00:47:15] Nathan:There[00:47:15] Kimberly:So, you know, around a decade into, you know, being a serious painter, I started to feel bad from the fumes because painting isn't really taught the way other things are taught. Painting is sort of like, there's, there's been this somewhat mystical, you know, here's a bunch of art supplies go to the art store and then let's see what you come up with.And then the, the, the classes tend to be more about critiques, about what you've done versus about,[00:47:45] Nathan:How do something.[00:47:46] Kimberly:About the, the true, true granular house, you know, the, how, like the basics, like things that you should know. And, so I started to get sick and I happened to be the arts editor at the time of the Huffington post.And I reached out to, and blogging was a very interesting, it was around 2004 or five, I think. Maybe, maybe it was a little bit later, but it was an interesting time because other people were thinking what I was thinking and I could see it in search for it. Whereas I couldn't, I couldn't have done that a decade earlier.And so I would reach out to leaders in the field, scientists, whatnot, to write about this topic of safety, you know, like that. And, but then when I read and I had, by the way, been consuming, Disneyland books, everything about painting, and I just saw this huge gaping hole of knowledge of how. Communicated. So I started writing this book all about painting and the book that I ended up publishing with Chronicle books is just one small piece of it because it was kind of too big.It was like James Joyce's Ulysses, you know, it was like a tone. It was like a Magnum Opus. and it's one of the key things that people don't realize is that you don't need to use solvent's P many people believe that you need to have like an open can of turpentine or some kind of solvent to dip your brush and defend the oil paint.So it's like super basic and most people when they go to the art store, and this is just my short, my short, skinny on the book. As most people, when they go to the art store, it would be like only buying canned or prepackaged. They don't know what's in it, you know, they don't know like that you don't need all those things.Like, but if you were like learning how to cook, you would know the difference between a garlic and a shallot and when to use canola oil or olive oil extra-virgin, you know, so I wanted to create, to start a book called the Y that was like Strunk and White's elements of style, but for oil paintings. So that's like the famous book that most writers use and just sort of shows you.And it's funny, actually, it's like a great book. So I wrote that book and that's called the new oil painting and it's published by Chronicle and it came out in June and it's like staying at the top, like five books of oil painting, which is great, you know? So I'm very excited about that. But in any way, in that journey of writing the book, the book, the book deal I got was two years ago.It was like a while ago. And so Susan. Did that I thought, you know, I would be a fool to not have a class that went with the book. So to the summer of 2019, I had, I had like four solo exhibitions in a row and I thought, okay, I'm going to devote six months and I'm going to record videos and I'm going to do that.You know? So I created this class that I wish that I had, and it was way bigger than the book. It was like everything I've ever thought about oil painting and that's called oil painting, fluency and flow. And, so yeah, so I launched a class, so the classes are out there[00:50:52] Nathan:Are the classes something that, you know, you're teaching in an online course? Are you there in person or through a partnership with.[00:50:58] Kimberly:So once I, once I learned about. That you can oil paint anywhere like you, Nathan tomorrow could decide, you know what? I w I've got an artist in me. I want to, I want to learn how to paint and you could set it up next year, you know, like in a little side table next to your computer, and there would be no fumes, no nothing.And it's much better for the environment it's not made out of plastic. It's like, you know, you could do it. So I wanted to get the word out. And, so my first class is, and so I was started teaching at major institutions. So the Anderson ranch in Colorado and the Otis where I actually took lessons, I taught there.And then, I just thought to myself, you know, this is highly inefficient because I have to like schlep over there and go there for, you know, hours at a time. And I could reach so many more people if I recorded. Instruction. And so I made these recordings, that's a hybrid of recordings and live sessions and critiques.And I have, you know, I have about 78 students right now. They're from all over the world and it's like the boast enriching wonderful, fabulous thing I've ever done[00:52:08] Nathan:Yeah.[00:52:09] Kimberly:To being an artist, you know,[00:52:11] Nathan:And so how does that interact with the newsletter that you have?[00:52:14] Kimberly:Well, I mean, so all of my experience, just as an artist has taught me that you, your value that you bring to any situation is the people that you can tell about what you do. It's like a tree falls in the forest. Nobody knows you're having a show. You know, you can't just rely on your art dealer.And the The dynamic has changed where. People don't have one, rarely do people have one gallery that represents them. And then they've got a bunch of satellite galleries. So you kind of have to be a little bit more entrepreneurial as an artist. And so you need to gather an email list. And so I stopped blogging and instead I have a newsletter because I want, you know, and I I have a narrative of stories that I tell about creativity about, about like I'll crawl deeply inside the making of a single painting of mine, or maybe another one.And I, and each email I send out, I spend a lot of time on, and it's like a work of art by itself because it's, again, it may be a different thing. a newsletter may be slightly different than a blog, but it's still words and image and it's just how. It's like another work of art, it's another work of art.And I love, using ConvertKit. I mean, I really, really do I tell people about it. I tell people about it all the time, because I think it's, it's the first software I've encountered that, allows you to very easily create a sequence. And, you know, you can I tell people, I say like, if you want to think about it, you could unspool Tolstoy's war and peace.If you wanted, like you could, every week you could give like a little section and you can start at the beginning and it takes the pressure off needing to constantly have every email be a first impression. So you can really get, let people to get, to know you in a much deeper, more personal way, because you create a sequence of letters to them that[00:54:23] Nathan:Right[00:54:24] Kimberly:Over time.[00:54:24] Nathan:Well, I think that's a really important point about starting at the beginning, because when you're sending these one-off emails to your newsletter, you don't know where people are joining. Some people for years and other people that is the very first thing. And so every time I find myself adding these caveats are like, Hey, if you're new here, you know, any of those things and with a, an email sequence, you know, the automated series, it starts at the beginning every time and it works people through it.And so I've had that. I've had so much fun creating those because you can chip away at them. Like I have one that I'm kind of writing now on, I guess it's on personal finance, you know? And it's just things that I wish that I had known as like, Moderately successful creator. Like, Hey, you're now earning a full-time living, what what's next?And so I can just write about that when I feel like it and add to this, that's now like 10 or 12 emails long.[00:55:20] Kimberly:And what's your frequent.[00:55:22] Nathan:That one I said to every week, but if I don't write for it, everyone just kind of pulls up at the end and weights, you know, for the next email. So it's 10 emails And then I add to it. And so like last week I didn't add a new one. And so now there's like a hundred people that are all the way at the end and they didn't get an email last week,[00:55:41] Kimberly:Yeah, no, I have that situation. I have a two year sequence[00:55:45] Nathan:Oh, wow.[00:55:45] Kimberly:I mean, I know like I sound, I probably seem super extroverted and voluble and everything like that, but like, I, I, it's very difficult for me to sell. It's very, it's very not. It's not cool for an artist to be. So like, I mean, it's just hard.It's also just hard for me. It's my personality. Like I even posting on Instagram is like a stressful thing for me. It's like, did I get everything that, you know, like I just, it's just not, I'm not one of those people that just casually throw stuff out there. I just, I'm very thoughtful and I want it, you know, it to be meaningful.And, but anyway, I was having trouble announcing that a workshop was over. Like serious trouble. Like I would put it off and I'd say, I can't do it. I can't press the send button. Like I just, even though you have the schedule feature on the broadcast, I was like, I can't do it. I can't do it. And you know, I, I can't remember the name of the marketing guru who was, have the five day sequence or, you know, basically a launch sequence is a series of emails where you first email is all about it.The second email might address one's reservations about it. The third Emile email might be testimonials. And then the fourth and fifth email are like last chance to get it. Like that to me is like, I would rather have needle eyes surgery than do that, you know, so I built it in, so I basically have the sequence where every quarter there's a launch sequence.Is that crazy[00:57:13] Nathan:No, it's fantastic[00:57:14] Kimberly:Because then, so, so that way, like I can just set it and forget it, like back to the Crock-Pot thinking like, you know, like, you know, just set it and forget it. You're going to sign up. You're going to get an announcement for a walk shop, a workshop a couple months after you've gotten to know me.[00:57:30] Nathan:Do you think that, well actually I guess really quick, the thing that I love about that is you can be completely immersed in your painting, right? And there you are selling a workshop and you're like, you don't, you have to think about it or know about it. Cause you did that work once and now you've finished a whole day of, of painting.Start something new at the end of the day. Cause that's the way that you roll. And then also you can say like finish up and check those sales and check that engagement. See, oh, people.[00:57:58] Kimberly:Yyeah, yeah. I mean, it's, it's just, it's I think people before they're going to buy anything, need to feel. Most people need to feel, you know, a level of comfort about what that person is about. so, you know, I haven't touched you tube. I haven't really, I honestly, I haven't made, I haven't made a huge effort because I've had the book coming out and I F I ha I had a big exhibition in June because, I designed a series of, excuse me.I designed, I painted a series of abstract paintings, for the cover of the book, because I wanted the cover, the book to be stellar and represent like a specified stroke, like hanging in air, like, to just convey the idea of painting and not be like a landscape, because for some crazy reason, if you, if you look up oil, painting, all the books, About oil painting are so poorly designed.It's like, it's strange because you would think people who are artists would care about design, but it's like pink pallet, Tino, bold 14 point font over like a green sunset. it's[00:59:07] Nathan:Yeah, well, design and painting are not necessarily the same thing you happen to come from a world where you have a lot of this. Even those two worlds have intertwined for you a lot over your career. So it makes sense to[00:59:18] Kimberly:Yes, but, but when, when, but if you get, but the painting books, like if you see a PA a painting book that has like a landscape on it, what if you don't like the landscape or they all have a landscape, or it has like the, the, you know, a face that's loosely drawn with, you know, painted with turbine, you know, Alla prima anyway.I've had so many exhibitions and like, I have a, I have a show coming up on Saturday and I've got to tell people about it. So like, I have to be, I'm already out there as an artist. So I have two different sequences and newsletters. I've got like a workshops for people who express interest in a workshop within the main newsletter.Like if, if, like, I'll say like I have this one great newsletter where the subject line is, who is this gorgeous woman? And then I show a picture cause they used to paint these beautiful renditions of the faces of the Egyptian mummies inside the sarcophagus, like beyond gorgeous. Like if you looked it up, you'd say, oh my God, this most beautiful painting I've ever seen.And it looks a lot like Francesco Clemente, which is an artist that like paint uses the same aspect ratio. It's like, you sort of go, oh, that's where that guy got that idea, you know? But. I'll talk about the pigments and that they used to, like, they used to burn mummies and then take the ashes and make a pigment called mummy brown.I know that sounds really kind of gross, but like, but, but they that's what they did. And I I'll say like, if this interests you, you might be interested in like a workshop. then if they say yes, then they'll go into my workshop sequence and they'll get notified when I open them.[01:01:00] Nathan:Are there other things that you do with email and with your newsletter[01:01:04] Kimberly:Yeah. Like I, like, I really want, I really want people to easily update their preferences. So I created a jot form like that simple select, you know, check box check if you're no longer interested in, workshops. No problem. Let me know. And I don't get enough work. Ominous, but hopefully, hopefully you'll put that feature in soon.[01:01:30] Nathan:We're actually working on building that feature now. So,[01:01:33] Kimberly:Are you kidding? When does it come out[01:01:34] Nathan:It's one of those asking where the paintings are done. It'll be done when it's done.[01:01:40] Kimberly:The other thing that I do is I really think gifts are important. And I think the marketer, the marketing community is really cheesy about it. Like they always do like outtakes from friends for reaction shots.And it's just so horrible, but I mean, it's just corny and you know who I'm talking about, but, you know, anyway, a gift is a beautiful thing because it's a movie that plays automatically and it doesn't have sound and. it can be so beautiful and subtle, you know, so every time I make a news that I usually have like an, it's like a work of art to me, you know?And sometimes if I want to emphasize a word, I'll paint a picture of that word and I'll integrate it in it. So like I really spend, I really love making them special. Yeah. I have one about the creative process and about not, not the Ted talk that you saw, but like I have one that's on the lead up to talking about the masterclass.Where it's called the curse of perfection. And I show, I talk about how, when I was a kid, my mother used to always like, she would sometimes wear like super smudge makeup and it was psych, it was called the smoky eye. I mean, they still do it now, but now the beauty people make it super specific, but then it was not that it was a little bit more like, woo.And I found a beautiful GIF of like a smokey eye, like slowly opening and closing. And I then go off on this whole subject about how, you know, it's as a painter, you have to let go of that, of the chains of perfection. You have to let it go in order to.[01:03:22] Nathan:Yeah. Well, I love that you're taking a medium that you know, of email or gifts or any of these things that a lot of people use in one way. And you're bringing those styles in that like class and sophistication and really just the level of effort. I think a lot of people are like hearing. Oh, I'm supposed to have, images or gifts.I'm supposed to be funny. And so they just look for something and slap it in there. And there's a level of effort that's not happening there, but because you're doing these automated sequences and you know that if you put this effort into it, it will last and work for you for years, then it's worth it.You can do a custom painted, you know, word or something like that to illustrate a point.[01:04:04] Kimberly:I mean, I have the luxury of having hundreds of paintings, and pieces of paintings, and video of—there's nothing sexier and more beautiful than watching somebody mix paint. There's literally nothing more gorgeous than that—So, I'm lucky.And I understand that other creators have to find other things, but there's a way to do things that have like a metaphorical—I here's what I would say. I would recommend that people seek to enhance their ability to think in metaphor when they write.So if they're gonna talk about a subject, and they're talking about a roadblock, instead of drawing a boulder on a road, find some other image or GIF. I use a lot of GIFs from ballet. You can find beautiful GIFs just by searching “Swan Lake” GIF, and it implies a physical movement.It goes back into that empathetic mirroring, where you feel that your own body is doing these movements that are surrounding this idea. It's not directly about what you're talking about, but it's like a little bit to the left, or it's just kind of a metaphorical version of it. It creates the space in between what you're literally saying, and what you're actually seeing that ignites the imagination and the view.[01:05:35] Nathan:Yeah. I love that. Just putting that extra bit of effort into defining the thing that's adjacent, rather than blatantly the first thing that came to mind. I think that makes a huge difference.[01:05:46] Kimberly:Yeah,[01:05:46] Nathan:We need to do a part two, because I have like 25 more questions to ask you, and we're out of time.[01:05:52] Kimberly:I'm in. I'm in.[01:05:54] Nathan:This has been amazing. Where should people go to subscribe to the newsletter?[01:05:58] Kimberly:They should go to KimberlyBrooks.com. The newsletter's right there in the footer and on the top. I really love communicating this way, and it's been an honor to be on this podcast, because I really love the product you've created. I really couldn't do it without you—without ConvertKit.So, I just, I'm such a fan, and I'm an evangelist, so kudos to you.[01:06:19] Nathan:Wow, thank you.Well, we're exci

Some of the mysteries around starting quarterback Sean Clifford were cleared up on Wednesday when the media was able to see Clifford take part in, and throw at practice. Host Thomas Frank Carr and Senior Editor Nate Bauer were both at media availability this week to take in the sights and sounds and give you a report on what they saw in this edition of the BWI Daily.    They start with their impressions of what they saw from Clifford and what his presence means not only for the game this weekend potentially, but also going forward. They also dive into what James Franklin said after practice in relation to his quarterback and how he's handling the situation where all three players - Clifford, Ta'Quan Roberson, and Christian Veilleux, are all receiving first team reps this week.    Next, they dive into the upcoming game and how the offense and defense will need to operate to win. Nate also gives his prediction on what sort of entertainment value there will be in Penn State and Illinois.    They discuss the running back situation and what Nate saw, and didn't see at practice on Wednesday and what that means for the game and the season moving forward. They discuss how it may not be the worst thing to have fewer tailbacks available after the bye and some presumed health improvements for Noah Cain.    PJ Mustipher's situation going forward is of great interest to the team and to Nate so he and T-Frank discuss the paths forward for the senior defensive tackle and the possibility of him returning for a fifth year at Penn State. T-Frank gives his assessment of where Mustipher might stand as a draft prospect and what coming back might do, good and bad, for his future.  Get 20% OFF @manscaped + Free Shipping with promo code 20BlueWhite at MANSCAPED.com! #ad #manscapedpod   SUBSCRIBE to Blue White Illustrated on YouTube and enable alerts - new highlights and videos uploaded regularly: https://www.youtube.com/c/bluewhiteillustratedvideo?sub_confirmation Bookmark our homepage: http://bluewhiteillustrated.com/ Subscribe to BWI Magazine and Newsletters: http://bluewhiteonline.com Download our podcasts: https://bluewhiteillustrated.podbean.com/ Like us on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/BlueWhiteIllustrated/ Follow us on Twitter https://twitter.com/BWIonRivals

The questions include: - Penn State's defense will be able to overcome the loss of PJ Mustihper. - Jesse Luketa will have an equal number of pressures to Arnold Ebiketie. - The Penn State defensive starters will shut out at least one more opponent.  - Penn State's rushing attack will have a statistically better output going forward. - Sean Clifford will play the majority of the snaps in the next six games. - Jahan Dotson will go over 100 yards receiving in more than three games to end the season.    - Penn State will match their 5-1 record to start the season in the second half.   Next they take a more open-ended look at the last stanza and discuss Penn State's chances of getting near or being in the conversation for the College Football Playoff. That question ultimately leads to the discussion of Penn State vs Ohio State and the Nittany Lions chances in that game.    Finally they look at the key factors to success that they haven't discussed, take a stab at evolving the Penn State offense after the bye week and then give a quick preview of the game this weekend against Illinois.    SUBSCRIBE to Blue White Illustrated on YouTube and enable alerts - new highlights and videos uploaded regularly: https://www.youtube.com/c/bluewhiteillustratedvideo?sub_confirmation Bookmark our homepage: http://bluewhiteillustrated.com / Subscribe to BWI Magazine and Newsletters: http://bluewhiteonline.com Download our podcasts: https://bluewhiteillustrated.podbean.com/ Like us on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/BlueWhiteIllustrated/ Follow us on Twitter https://twitter.com/BWIonRivals

The storylines around Penn State and Iowa's game on Saturday continue to swirl as James Franklin responded to allegations that his team was faking injuries during the loss on Saturday. Host of the BWI Daily Edition Thomas Frank Carr and Senior Editor Nate Bauer bring you their impressions of James Franklin's comments, along with some of the specific comments he made last night. Nate also brings up the idea that the days of decorum for opposing teams may be behind us in sports. Is that the case? T-Frank thinks otherwise.    James Franklin revealed the status of some players last night, but left others with a hint as to where they might be in their injury process, specifically starting quarterback Sean Clifford.    They also discuss what they saw from practice and specifically about backup quarterback Ta'Quan Roberson and his abilities that were on display as the main guy in front of the media. From there they talk about Mike Yurcich's interactions with him over time, and how they may have changed this week. T-Frank tells you what he saw when not paying attention to the quarterbacks, and what his interpretations of some of Franklin's answers mean for the team going forward.  SUBSCRIBE to Blue White Illustrated on YouTube and enable alerts - new highlights and videos uploaded regularly: https://www.youtube.com/c/bluewhiteillustratedvideo?sub_confirmation Bookmark our homepage: http://bluewhiteillustrated.com/ Subscribe to BWI Magazine and Newsletters: http://bluewhiteonline.com Download our podcasts: https://bluewhiteillustrated.podbean.com/ Like us on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/BlueWhiteIllustrated/ Follow us on Twitter https://twitter.com/BWIonRivals
