Produced about 1934, this 26 episode "Railroad" Soap Opera... is a serial. That means each episode is connected to the one before it and to the one coming after it. They are not separate stories. As they only ran about 12 minutes per episode, I have edited two episodes back to back separated by an old radio commercial... one that was heard about 10 years after this show was made, but it offers a short break between episodes. All the Green Valley Line tracks will be stored on "The Green Valley Line" Playlist.

Slap your headphones on and brace your tender ear holes for Episode 262 of the Rich Dickman Show: "Well-Readed Randy." This shitshow of a podcast drops a hot steaming load of real life right onto your poor, unsuspecting eardrums. We kick off with Father-of-the-Year, who's losing his goddamn mind over his hellspawn's piss-poor attempt at housekeeping and vomit decorum. Mother's Day weekend finds this martyr busting his ass scrubbing the car while his ungrateful offspring are in their pigsty rooms, having a dank meme-fest. The cherry on top? His son, the vomit virtuoso, misplaces the fucking garage door opener, flaunting their home's security vulnerabilities for all to see. But the shitstorm's just getting started. Little Houdini gets locked out, only to break in through a window. Top-tier home security my ass! As if the fiasco couldn't get worse, the vomit savant decides the sink is his personal barf bucket. Cue the debate that could make Shakespeare hurl in his grave - to hurl or not to hurl. Our vomit-obsessed protagonist falls sick, but daddy-dearest insists he clean up his puke Picasso. Some call it tough love; we call it goddamn hilarious. In the midst of the hurling, we discover the kid suffers from a chronic case of "can't-aim-for-shit-itis." Pops is nearing meltdown, Mom's fantasizing about a one-way ticket to sanity, and we're struggling to keep our own guts from bursting in laughter. As we wait for the inevitable vomit-fueled apocalypse to hit home, we swerve into everyone's favorite topic - the art of upchuck aiming. Apparently, as adults, we should have a sixth sense for incoming hurl and bolt for the toilet. Unfortunately, our poor kid missed that memo, leaving dad fearing both divine wrath and the 16-hour bug. In a twist nobody asked for, we ditch vomit for violence, recounting a street brawl featuring a drunken idiot and a heavyweight Hawaiian with a high-kick that'd make Bruce Lee proud. It's surprisingly entertaining watching a 300-pound guy drop-kick a drunk into the next week. Next up, we've got Texas drag queens, NJ - the official armpit of America, and an Icelandic chocolate that's just too tasty for its own good. In the chaos, we find time to give a shout-out to rainbow Jesus and debate some Transformers-themed art. Nothing like a dash of Optimus Prime and holy water to keep the shit interesting. We end this trainwreck with a teaser for the next episode - Jesus as a cereal mascot. You read that right, folks. But for now, we're leaving you with the stench of barf, the image of a Technicolor Jesus, and a glimpse at our upcoming shitshow. So buckle up, suck it up, and get ready for another wild ride with The Rich Dickman Show.
Episode 125 - Sorry for the wait! This week the fellas are joined by Pops & Tray Boog. They discuss should men and women split the bills 50/50? Jamie Foxx news, J. Prince the kingpin? Power continues to leak, Bob Lee murder case, Robert De Niro, Henry Ruggs, NBA Playoffs, Loser of the Week, and much more.

Agnes is under the weather this week so Pinky pays her a visit with some movies and ice cream. While meeting with Agnes, Red receives a call from Dembe asking for his help to get Dr. Michael Abani out of custody in Yemen because Dembe needs a favor from an old friend, specifically the mother of Dembe's kid. Support the Show! Be sure to #FillTheFedora on Patreon. Case Profile for Dr. Michael Abani We dig into a little backstory this week on one of our favorite characters, Dembe. Many moons ago, Dembe was a young up and coming university student who had a love of fine wine and fine women, mostly the women since he did not not drink. He also had a knack for being a criminal as he helped support his friend Raymond who had rescued him as a younger child. One day as Dembe is delivering a pack to a handoff, he meets the love of his life Aissa. One night Dembe frantically requests Aissa to leave with him and she let's Dembe know that she can't and is going to the states, but Dembe can't leave Raymond either and they part ways. Years later Dembe returns only to find out that Aissa had a daughter, Isabella. Yep Dembe... you are the father. Fast forward to today and Aissa is now preparing to web Dr. Michael Abani, but it turns up Abani was smuggling money and weapons to the rebels against the country of Yemen. He is taken prisoner and Aissa realizes she can only turn to one person to save her fiancé. Dembe. Dembe then contants Red to see what he is able to do. During the events they find out his partner John was the one doing the dirty work, setting up an account in Abani's name. Red has a chat with the leaders of Yemen, turns over John, frees Abani, and gets a side deal in the process. Dembe gets one last look at his long lost love as he begins to amend things with Red. Be sure to answer our profiling question of the week: If you were Dembe, would you choose to go with Red or stay with your partner?

Check it out below: Andrew Keel (00:00:00) - they're not gonna wanna sell right when you call 'em, right? They're, you're kind of caught 'em off guard. But it's getting the details on the property, seeing how it's performing, and then following up with them because life happens. I, I, if, if this cold calling has taught me anything, it's that, hey, you know, people are one heart attack away from fire sailing their property. It's all timing and being there when you know something happens to help give them a solution, right? A, a fast exit, uh, because that's, that matters in today's world. Intro (00:00:27) - Welcome to the How to Scale commercial real estate show. Whether you are an active or passive investor, we'll teach you how to scale your real estate investing business into something big. Sam Wilson (00:00:40) - Andrew Keel is the c e o of Keel team llc and m h u Top 100 owner of manufactured housing communities with over 2000 lots under management. His team currently manages over 30 manufactured housing communities in 11 self storage facilities. Andrew, welcome to the show. Thanks Andrew Keel (00:00:56) - For having me. Excited to be here, Sam. Sam Wilson (00:00:58) - Absolutely. The pleasure is mine. Andrew, there are three questions I ask every guest who comes in the show in 90 seconds or last, can you tell me where did you start? Where are you now, and how did you get there? Andrew Keel (00:01:07) - Started flipping houses around central Florida, uh, through a yellow letter I mailed out. I found two mobile homes, uh, uh, that, that I ended up buying and selling on contract. Ended up meeting a, a park owner and he took me under his wing and, and said, Hey, this is how you syndicate deals and raise money from investors. So now I've been doing that for seven years, and we own, uh, over 2000 lots, across 33 mobile home parks and 11 self storage facilities. Sam Wilson (00:01:37) - Wow, that's amazing. That's absolutely amazing. Tell me, I guess, what, uh, what's the market sentiment and what it is you're doing right now? Andrew Keel (00:01:46) - The market sentiment? You know, I think it's, uh, I think there's some, some ups and downs. You know, there's some, there's some landlords out there that have kind of given mobile home park investing a black eye, I would say from, you know, raising rents too fast and, and, and kind of, you know, predatory landlording is, is kind of, you know, going around. So there's some of that out there. Uh, but then there's good operators that are doing it the right way, right? Like, you know, rent's gotta go up, but you gotta fix that deferred maintenance, you gotta improve the properties and make 'em better. And I think there's a win-win there for the tenants and for the investors. So, uh, it's just finding the right operators. Yeah, Sam Wilson (00:02:23) - No, that, that's absolutely right. Uh, I want to hear, you know, what, what it is that you guys are doing right now. Uh, like who is your target seller? What, what's that, what's that look like for you? Andrew Keel (00:02:36) - Target seller is, uh, we have a, an acronym, it's called goat and it stands for Gray, old and Tired . And in our c r m we don't pursue any deals unless the owner is a gray, old and tired, uh, owner of commercial real estate, specifically mobile home parks and self storage facilities. Uh, through our sales team, we make over a quarter of a million cold calls to mom and pop owners of, uh, self-storage and, uh, mobile home parks every year. And that's where we buy all of our deals or are off market, uh, direct to owner. And, you know, we've just found that, you know, when we're buying from mom and Pops, we're able to get, you know, uh, typically better deals, but mainly we're buying properties that are not being efficiently run. And when we take them over, you know, there's very easy to see things like, Hey, having your rent roll be digital and software instead of on a yellow pad of paper. Little things that we can do to tweak the operations to make it better. And hey, if that's how they're running the rent roll, imagine what else they're doing that we could tweak to more efficiently and and increase the No, I, so yeah, that's, that's our nutshell. Yeah. Sam Wilson (00:03:46) - And, and I think anytime, and of course the, the manufacture to housing community space, even for the last decade has certainly been undergoing its fair share of sophisticated ownership groups. Uh, in fact, I would say it's probably more on that front than maybe less at this stage, cuz it's, it's been such a hot, uh, a hot, um, asset class to be buying in. But tell me some more other efficiencies maybe that you guys see some sophistication that you can bring to the table at scale, maybe that a mom and pop owner just can't afford to do with a single property. Andrew Keel (00:04:20) - Yeah, I mean, the big one that comes to mind is sub metering the, uh, water and the water usage, right? The under each home, you know, now there's technology out there with internet connections. The sub meters actually have internet connection and will in real time notify you of high usage. So if they go over, uh, you know, high usage, we can stop it, right? You know, very early on, instead of waiting 30 days for us to get a, uh, uh, an invoice in the mail from the water company telling us that we have a water leak because our water bill is double right. You know, we're able to just react in real time where the mom and pops, they may not even be billing back for the water and sewer. They may just be including that in lot rent. So not only were we billing it back, but we're also catching leaks earlier to, you know, reduce that potential expense. Sam Wilson (00:05:07) - Yeah. And it's small stuff like that. I mean, I don't know what, what do those meters cost you on a, on a per home basis? Andrew Keel (00:05:14) - Let's say 500 bucks all in with installation. Sam Wilson (00:05:17) - Okay. But, okay, so 500 bucks, let's assume it's a hundred pad, uh, a hundred, a hundred pad park, that's 50 grand, right? And so that's right to a mom and pop owner, that's a tough pill to swallow. Like, man, you know, I don't know. That's, we, we run this park and that's $50,000 and you know, he probably had a, had a new truck in 10 years, so, you know, he's looking at a new truck or backfilling water and goes, I think I'll just take the new truck. Uh, cuz you know, if you have to choose how to spend his money, where you look at that and say, how can we not put that amount of money into these parks? It just, it just makes financial sense. Andrew Keel (00:05:52) - Like, for example, a park we bought it had water leaks and it was losing $2,000 a month on the water sewer recapture. Wow. So if you take 2000 a month, month, it times up by 12 months gives you 24 K a year in additional expense. If you're able to, you know, add 24 K in NOI to that property and then add a seven cap, you know, you just saved $342,000 over $342,000. So to spend 50 k to make 342,000, we're gonna do that every day of the week. Sam Wilson (00:06:26) - For sure. For sure. You call me when you have that next, uh, next, uh, you know, uh, opportunity right there. If I can do that in a year, I'll, I'll, I'll be all, I'll be all about it. Thanks, Andrew. Um, no, that's fantastic. I love that. I love that. Let's get into the, the, the 250,000 cold calls comment. I mean, that's mind boggling. Are there 250,000 self-storage and or mobile home? Are there, are there that many combined in the United States Andrew Keel (00:06:53) - That there there's not, yeah, there's about 50,000 or so of each asset class. Okay. And obviously, you know, for mobile home parks, that number's going down every year because it's really hard to get new ones developed and the existing ones are being torn down and turned into apartments or, or something else. Uh, you know, for it's self storage is obviously being built up, you know, uh, more and more. But, uh, you know, a lot of that is recurring calls. You know, they don't pick up, you know, you're leaving voicemails, you're doing different things. But, but yeah, I think that is our niche. And you know, for example, we have a $4 million property under contract right now that's supposed to close at the end of the month, a hundred percent owner financing. Wow. At 6% and a seven year term and 25 year amortization. Okay. So like a hundred percent l t v, you know, and, and do your return metrics on that when all of the capital you're raising is for improvements. Hmm. Sam Wilson (00:07:48) - Mm-hmm. . That's amazing. That's amazing. Awesome. And people, people will tell you that those deals don't exist, but you're, you're living proof that that, that they do in fact still exist. What's it, what's it been like, give us some insight onto building a cold calling team and even getting the deal flow and data right? Such that that team can then continue to produce those phone calls. I mean, that's, that's a whole process all itself. Yeah. Andrew Keel (00:08:13) - Oh, it a hundred percent is, yeah. We used a, a software called Reonomy to help identify property owners and get their contact information and then, you know, really identifying the team. You know, we found that it's better to get sales guys that can work part-time because do it eight hours straight of just cold calling. You're gonna lose energy and you're gonna, by the end of it, you're not gonna be as productive. So we have, uh, a team that works part-time, you know, four hours a day, right. In the mornings typically. And, you know, they're on a dialer, so they're hitting, you know, multiple numbers at once, you know, reaching out to people and, and it's been really productive for us, you know, building those relationships, you know, hey, they, they're not gonna wanna sell right when you call 'em right? They're, you're kind of caught 'em off guard, but it's getting the details on the property, seeing how it's performing, and then following up with them because life happens. I, i, if, if this cold calling has taught me anything, it's that, hey, you know, people are one heart attack away from fire sailing their property. It's all timing and being there when you know something happens to help give them a solution. Right. A a fast exit. Uh, because that's, that matters in today's world. Sam Wilson (00:09:18) - It, it certainly does. And I was the unfortunate recipient of some news on some deals we'd been chasing a couple years ago. And, uh, you know, the seller at that point was just hard and fast. No, no, no, not gonna do it. And then, uh, I found out today that all the whole portfolio had traded hands. And I'm like, Andrew Keel (00:09:34) - It's my own Sam Wilson (00:09:34) - Fault for not staying in front of them. Right. I mean, it's my own fault. Those are lessons learned the hard way where you just go, okay, you've got to, like you said, it's one heart attack away from suddenly going, Hey, we're gonna fire sale this. You know, I got three months left to live maybe and I don't really care anymore, so somebody buy it so I can go do what I want for the next 90 days. Uh, yeah. And Andrew Keel (00:09:52) - Right now, you know, with what's going on with all these, uh, interest rate caps that people are buying and, and what happened with these variable rate loans, you know, I think, I think there's more and more forced sellers than there are, uh, you know, people that, that would desire to sell, you know, at, at the right time. So there might be some opportunity there. Do Sam Wilson (00:10:10) - You think it's happened because it's certainly, I've seen it happen in the, um, multi-family space. I hadn't really heard or thought much about it in the manufactured housing or community, uh, space. People taking on bridge debt, bridge debt is now coming due. They need to refi, but they can't, cuz it doesn't make sense. They're, they're doing cash in refis. I mean, are you guys seeing that in your, in your, uh, asset class as well? Andrew Keel (00:10:35) - Not a ton of it. You know, I think it's still early even for multi-family. You know, I think it, it's still early, but there were some operators out there that took variable rate loans and now are negative cash flow. And I mean, I, I've seen it, right? These CMBS lenders are vicious. They will take your property back. They want to take your property back. Right. So it, it, it's really, you know, a matter of time before we see blood in the streets. Sam Wilson (00:11:00) - Yeah. Yeah. That's unfortunate. Yeah. And that's, uh, and again, you know, I haven't seen it a lot in the multifamily space, but certainly have heard the rumblings and have, uh, you know, talked to some lenders and people that have indicated that they're, that they are seeing that, uh, indeed occur on the, especially on the cash and refi side, on, on multi-family properties, which has gotta be a painful situation Oh. Uh, for everyone. Uh, especially Andrew Keel (00:11:21) - Everyone, especially Sam Wilson (00:11:22) - Your investor base. Um, so yeah, that's, uh, let's talk about the affordable housing crisis. I mean, it's something, you know, we hear that those three words put together all the time, and you're in a space that is a, like you said, it's, it's a, it's not just a constrain, but it's a dwindling supply space. So what are you guys doing on that front to preserve and or create more affordable housing? Andrew Keel (00:11:44) - Yeah, great question. I love talking about this because, you know, this is the win-win, right? You know, we're, we're buying these properties from mom and pops who have let things kind of dwindle, right? Like, we're buying properties that are 70% occupied, you know, so there's, there's more lots sitting there, but the mom and pops just don't have the effort. Or like you said, the, the funds to go and buy homes, bring them in and set 'em up on those lots, right? So when we're able to rejuvenate a property and come in with a lot of energy and a lot of new capital, it, it just, it, it is so awesome. That is why I love doing this business because I'm able to see lives change. I'm able to add affordable housing units to markets that desperately need it. And at the same time, I'm able to create a win for our investors because they're able to get great returns on their investment and also get great tax benefits because of these, these mobile home parks. Andrew Keel (00:12:33) - But I think, you know, still the majority of mobile home parks, like over 60% are still owned by Mom and Pops mm-hmm. , and they've just kind of used these things as a retirement vehicle and haven't reinvested into them. So, uh, that vacant lot scenario is where we're adding affordable housing units. And, you know, the, the high level econ 1 0 1 is like, hey, the supply of mobile home parks are shrinking every year. That's like unknown. Just type in, you know, mobile home parks, uh, shutting down into Google and see what pops up. It's, it's all over the news because, uh, deferred maintenance, because redevelopment, you know, you name it. And we're able to buy these properties and keep them mobile home parks and increase the occupancy so that we're adding affordable housing. And, and that just matters that, that matters because we desperately need it. Manufactured housing can be built for around $50 a square foot where site built housing is over a hundred dollars a square foot. So it's like there's a huge win here, uh, to be had. And, uh, yeah, I'm excited to be able to add to that supply. Sam Wilson (00:13:36) - Tell me about, tell me about, um, maybe community engagement inside of your, uh, communities. What's something you guys are doing on that front? Obviously retention of your, um, residence is probably a lot easier in your space, but are there things that you're doing to really improve the, um, just kinda the holistic experience of someone living in your communities? Andrew Keel (00:14:00) - Yeah, I think the first thing is we always have an onsite manager that is, is a tenant that lives in our park. You know, and, and just giving them that point of contact really makes it feel, you know, more like a community because they connect everybody. They're talking with everybody. Uh, that has been huge. You know, we're, we're buying from mom and pops who have self-managed Yeah. And maybe they live a couple hours away and they don't make it to the property. Uh, you know, every month where an onsite manager that's working, even if they are part-time, you know, Monday, Wednesday, Friday, you know, you know, and whatever the, the hours are. But it's just good to have someone there that they can talk to and they can work through stuff and see the options. You know, we noticed that in, uh, during c o d, you know, there was a ton of rental assistance programs, but there was no one to like hold the, the hand of the tenants and help get them signed up for these. Andrew Keel (00:14:49) - So our onsite managers really carried that load and, and sat down on the computers and helped, helped our tenants sign up for these rental assistance programs. And, you know, that is a huge burden off of their back. Now they can spend the money that they have on food and other resources instead of needing to worry, you know, they got thousands of dollars for their rental assistance and that was just a huge help. So having onsite managers and then obviously communicating well with our, with our resident base is, is huge for us. So those are two things, community engagement wise, uh, that we make sure to do every year. Sam Wilson (00:15:19) - Yeah, no, I think that that's really, really cool. Thank thanks for sharing the insight on that. Yeah. And having that local, that person that's right there, living one of your neighbors. I mean, I think that would be just a huge, um, just a huge thing that would really, you know, again, not just resonant retention, but but from a, a, uh, feeling like you belong there sort of thing would, would make a big Yeah. A big difference on that front. You mentioned bringing homes in. So you buy a park, use the example, you said it's 70% occupied, that means, let's call it a hundred. I don't know how many units was there, but let's just make a number up and say it's a hundred. So you got 30 open slots, you're gonna bring houses in. Are you guys then selling those to your residents? Are you using those as park owned homes? What is that? What's your plan there? Andrew Keel (00:16:02) - Our plan is, is we want tenant owned home communities. It's just more scalable and, and we're, we want to rent out the dirt, not the homes themselves. Right. You know, a lot of people don't, don't think about this, but manufactured homes are built differently. The drywall is not the same size that the windows are different sizes, the doors are different sizes. You can't just go down to the Home Depot and get some of these materials. So you're gonna have to special order them and, and ship them in. And, you know, with the logistics issues we've had the past couple of years, that can get expensive. So we don't want to own the homes. We want our tenants to own the homes and we will sell them, uh, sometimes via like a, a, a lease option or a, you know, a, a a rent credit program where they will make monthly installments towards purchasing the home. Uh, but mostly, uh, you know, there's financing companies out there as well, like Triad and PEP Lending that will finance our tenants and then we will just, you know, get law rent. Sam Wilson (00:16:56) - Got it. Got it. So you guys aren't even directly buying the homes, you're just connecting the buyers with the, uh, manufactured housing, uh, manufacturers. Is that right? Or are you guys buying 'em, bringing 'em in and then connecting them? Some Andrew Keel (00:17:09) - Sometimes. But, you know, everybody likes it with a bow on top and ready to go. So, we'll, we'll actually get the homes in and there's a program called Cash Program at 21st, uh, mortgage where we, we'll buy the homes or we won't even have to buy the homes. We'll get the homes moved in, get 'em set up on the lot, and then we'll market them and then, you know, funnel, uh, interested buyers to this 21st mortgage who's a part of Berkshire Hathaway and that whole, uh, you know, Clayton Homes, you know, Warren Buffet deal and they will finance our tenants. Sam Wilson (00:17:38) - Got it. Oh, that's cool. I like that. I like the way you put that with, everybody wants it with a bow on top, cuz that's that's absolutely true. I know here, and again, I haven't had, uh, we haven't talked mobile home parks on this show probably, uh, maybe six, seven months. So I know the last time someone came on and really dove deep into the mobile home park space, even then they were experiencing just some supply chain constraints as it pertained to getting new homes, getting things on the lots. Has any of that lessened, or what's that look like now? Andrew Keel (00:18:06) - Yes, it has lessened, you know, it was 18 months to order a home and it wasn't come in for 18 months. It was crazy. Wow. Back in Covid and all the, you know, the logistics issues. Uh, but now we're down to about four months. Okay. So we'll order it and four months it's coming in, which is amazing. I mean, I'm, you know, very grateful for that because 18 months was just so hard. And then they, they wouldn't tell you it was 18 months. Right. They'd tell you it was gonna be 12 months. Right. And then they'd push it back and then they push it back, and then it ended up being 18 months. So imagine your proforma when you're planning on income at, at month 13, and you're not getting until month 19. So there was a lot of operators hurting at that time, but things have improved on that front. Sam Wilson (00:18:45) - Oh, that's great. That's great. I'm glad to, glad to hear that. Yeah. That's one of those things that, uh, like you said, if it's, if it's, you can't, you can't underwrite, you know, when, when timelines aren't kept from your manufacturers, you just can't, you can't stick to it. Tell me about this. You've built a team. You've, you've gone from, I think you started in fixing flip, is that right? If I'm remembering your story correctly in the beginning Yep. Picks and flipping. Yep. Now you've grown this, this huge mobile home park, uh, or mobile home community business. You've got team members, you've got cold callers working all day. You guys are selling homes, you're buying communities. I mean, you're going like gangbusters. What is one thing you feel like you've done really well that maybe somebody that's just starting out and or you know, has a little traction should emulate Andrew Keel (00:19:28) - Hiring overseas? Hiring overseas and siloing off, you know, tasks and then documenting really well, if, if I was gonna, you know, do it all over again, I would've done that earlier. You know, you can hire more loyal and, uh, you know, less expensive help overseas that will be, will be just fully capable and then some to execute. And, you know, I, if you can do that, I, I really think every business owner should really explore hiring some overseas help. Mm-hmm. Sam Wilson (00:20:02) - mm-hmm. . Yeah. Absolutely. Absolutely. When it comes to things that maybe rewind the tape a little bit and, you know, you said, gosh, I could have done this better. What are, what are some of those things that come to mind? Andrew Keel (00:20:15) - Yeah, man, I, uh, in my early days, you know, when we were just hiring people, uh, we didn't do like a personality assessment or anything like that to see if they would actually be good in their role, uh, long term. So we had a lot of turnover, uh, because it was, hey, we, we put someone that was not detail oriented in a role that required, you know, very detail oriented, uh, personality types. So now we use a system called the Predictive Index. Mm-hmm. . And it does a, a cognitive and a personality assessment. And it's just aligned our team with the roles and we're, we're fighting. They're staying longer, they're happier, you know, because we're playing to their strengths. So that's been huge for us. Sam Wilson (00:20:59) - Yeah. Man, what a powerful thing that is. I can, I can just speak, uh, and completely agree with you on that front. Using a personality assessment and familiar with predictive predictive index, the disc test. A lot of those, uh, you know, maybe one, one, I don't know if one's necessarily better than the other, but I've used them both. And, uh, gosh, I was even having a conversation with a new hire yesterday when I was like, wait, I can refer back to your, um, personality test that you took. And I recognize that I need to speak to you and engage with you in a different way such that you understand what it is I'm trying to say. And, and give you what you need to go do your job. Andrew Keel (00:21:38) - And Exactly. Sam Wilson (00:21:39) - And I, that's so powerful. It's so powerful and I so powerful. And actually this, there was a team member that we just, this is the same team member we just brought on, but I had a role, I wanted to hire this particular, I wanted to fill this role and I already knew this person. I wanted to put her in that role. She did the personality test and I said, no, but there's another kind of blended role that we can put you in that will do a little bit of those things, but fill the gap over here much more meaningfully based on your skillset. She's way happier and she's crushing it. It's like she That's awesome. No, it is awesome. So I just thank, thanks for sharing that. Cause I think if people aren't utilizing those very, and they're not expensive. Andrew Keel (00:22:17) - No, they're not. No. Sam Wilson (00:22:19) - And it makes all the difference in the world. So I can just testify to what you've just said as a, as a leader, um, how powerful that is when we're building out, uh, our teams on that front. So very, very cool. You, you've shared with us so much here today, Andrew, on how to build a team, talking about, you know, making 250, which is an astounding number thousand cold calls, how you guys are buying, you're buying everything offline, buying from, from, uh, you know, mom and pops, how you're bringing sophistication to the industry in this space. We didn't even get a talk about self-storage. I mean, you guys are buying in, in, in that department too. Maybe you'll have to come back on show number two and tell us how you're, how you guys are finding opportunity on that front. Is there anything else really that comes to mind today that you'd say, man, Sam, these are some things that I really wanna share with your listeners that are relevant to what we're doing and that, uh, I think will make a difference? Andrew Keel (00:23:09) - Yeah. I would say at, at the end of the day, uh, you know, being willing to, uh, give back and, and try to create win-wins, you know, in, in your business, right? Like, uh, our, our goal is not to make as much money as we humanly can, right? At the end of the day, it's creating a win-win for our residents. Mm-hmm. . So they're happy. And by doing that, they're gonna stay longer and it's gonna be a win for our investors because they're gonna have more reliable, uh, income and, and, you know, income and distributions off of their investments. So that's, that's something I can go to bed at night and lay my head down knowing, hey, I'm doing, I'm doing good in the world. I'm adding affordable housing and I'm, I am, you know, keeping these assets as mobile home parks in, in my case, uh, where otherwise they might have been redeveloped and, and turned into something else and these people would've lost, uh, lost their homes and lost their living arrangements. So, uh, yeah, I'll just spin that way. Sam Wilson (00:24:06) - Awesome. Andrew, thank you for coming on the show today. I do appreciate it. Certainly learned a lot from you. If our listeners wanna get in touch with you and learn more about you, what is the best way to do that? Andrew Keel (00:24:15) - Best way to do that would be to check out my website, it's keel team.com. That's just K e E L t e A m.com. Sam Wilson (00:24:25) - Kehl team.com. We'll make sure we put that there in the show notes. Andrew, thank you again. Have a great rest of your day. Andrew Keel (00:24:31) - Yeah, thank you so much, Sam. Sam Wilson (00:24:33) - Hey, thanks for listening to the How to Scale Commercial Real Estate Podcast.

Full Hour | In today's second hour, Dom welcomes Colonel Allen B. West and Stan Casacio back onto the Dom Giordano Program live in studio as the Colonel comes to the Philadelphia region for an event tonight in Whitemarsh Township. Dom, Allen, and Stan run through multiple topics of the day, each offering their own thoughts and breakdown of both the border situation and Trump's Town Hall last night. Also, Stan tells more about the event, and Allen goes in-depth into his history as both a scubadiver and skydiver, something he learned to enjoy while in the service. Then, Dom Giordano welcomes in Lindsie Rank, Student Press Council at FIRE (Foundation for Individual Rights and Expression), to hear about a situation unfolding at Conestoga High School. Since the early 1960's, every year, the student newspaper, The SPOKE, would publish a ‘destination map,' that would show where graduates are going to college. This year, after a student complaint, the district has threatened to remove funding for the paper if they publish the map again. The district argues that this is in an effort to promote equity, but Rank explains the implications on the First Amendment that such a demand holds. Rank explains how students are pushing back, and explains how and why this is another case of censorship in schools in the guise of equity.

Jason: [2:49] Yeah it's super fun to catch up with you and with the audience. I feel like the last show we did was right after shoptalk so I did get to see a bunch of folks and now you know it's a treat your season is starting to heat up so I have a bunch of upcoming trips so. If listeners are going to any of these shows make sure you make a point to catch up with me and you could see the jar jar costume. In person so I'm actually doing this show from. The famous Mayflower Hotel in Washington d.c. because I'm in town for the. Home and Commercial products Association I'm doing the keynote for their annual conference tomorrow morning. And then I'm going to sap Sapphire which is their big customer show in Orlando in on May 15th if you like. There's a fair amount of our listeners that go to that show and then to fun ones that are you know core Commerce shows after that we have Commerce next by our friends Scott Silverman is in New York in June so June 20th.

I'm going to spend an hour just making fun of Scott Galloway with her. Scot: [4:25] Nice yeah that's good the dog dog is off the porch whoo. Jason: [4:30] Exactly I was thinking about like maybe bring a mask I've already you know I have audio collection of a lot of my favorite Scott Galloway predictions meaning which didn't come true. Scot: [4:43] Macy's Woodberry Amazon and apparel. Jason: [4:47] But I feel like this is. Scot: [4:48] Amazon to be Roadkill. Jason: [4:50] Like Freaky Friday like so like Cara is this like super famous interviewer and I am interviewing her and we're doing it at Tara know where she started code conference so it's very topsy-turvy. Scot: [5:03] Yeah yeah just bring red tears without her trademark thing. Jason: [5:07] I assume she just travels with one of her own yeah that Herman Miller red chair yeah. Scot: [5:09] BYO RC okay. Jason: [5:15] I actually think she's not with Vox anymore so I don't know you know she may be in withdrawn not she may have said said goodbye to the red chairs will have to ask her. Scot: [5:24] Look that's that's question number one. Jason: [5:26] Yeah but besides all of that we are just getting started on q1 earnings season and you know of course for most of our listeners one of the most important earnings calls happened last week. Scot: [5:39] Yeah it wouldn't be a Jason and Scot show if we didn't have some Amazon news. So on April 27th which was last Thursday when we're recording this Amazon had their earnings it was what Wall Street would call a clear beat meaning both top and the bottom line where a beat this is welcome news because Amazon's earnings have been kind of like not not mrs. but not amazing. [6:07] So revenues came in two percent above consensus which is a slight beat but what got Wall Street very excited was operating income came in 57 percent above and longtime listeners will know I usually cover the retail portion of Amazon and Jason covers the cloud or a WS part, we're going to mix it up because I read all the reports and what was most interesting right now in kind of the world of Internet stocks the whole world has been turned upside down by chat GPT which is put out by open AI Sam Altman startup who is partially owned and supported by Microsoft there and investor and the hole, infrastructure runs on Azure their cloud computing, platform this has been a huge win for Microsoft because it's enabled them to add a chat gbt like component to Bing. [7:02] And you know the buzz is that, search is dead a lot of people are even speculating maybe even apps will be dead you know maybe maybe you don't really need apps on a phone if you could just talk to your phone and say hey book me restaurant reservation as 6:30 at the one of these three restaurants why do you need a nap if an AI can go to that room so there's there's a lot of people in the Wall Street and Tech world are, I would say there's like this wall of worry around this new innovation and this is real so chat GPT was the fastest product to 100 million users what was it Jason like four weeks or something. [7:42] Like an egg yeah if you see a chart it's like this a vertical wall whereas like Facebook and some of those kinds of things were previous record holders for this and it took, you know years and so-so. Jason: [7:54] Two months to a billion or 4 months to a billion users. Scot: [7:58] Yeah so it's just this crazy adoption curve unlike anything we've ever seen before so you know there's, this was top of mind when this came out so the so while streets pretty obsessed with what's going on with the cloud also Amazon's Cloud division has been slowing their growth it was the you know the darling of the Amazon portfolio and now it's been slowing because as we head into this recessionary period, also another concern is we cover this a little bit last time but Silicon Valley Bank failed we've had all this kind of startup craziness and a lot of those startups use cloud computing and Amazon so, so that was what all eyes were on and you know what we saw was the growth did slow to 11 and a half percent which was less bad than what people were thinking so is kind of viewed as positive which is always one of these counter, Wall Street all about expectations not like the real absolute numbers but 11.5 percent growth is this is this part we've been covering this for for. [9:04] Years of this point five years and it's always growing north of 50% but this time it really slowed down and they're even projecting for next quarter or slow 2011 Amazon did Jesse did talk a lot about AI there they've talked about how they're going to do a lot of people the other problem with Chad gbt is it looks the prior to the prior a I think we all spend a lot of time with which was Alexa now feels wildly inferior because you're having these really robust conversations with chat gvt and Alexis can do like, yeah it's not really like at that level of conversational AI you can get some weather maybe play a song and a couple other little things add something it'll talk to you about do you want to reorder your dog food and yeah that's about it right so very, Barry and then you know that used to be cool and now in a world where we're chatty be teeing it feels inferior so Amazon like Google is a little bit on their heels from this and they basically came out and said we're going to do a lot around Alexa here and it will we're dedicated that being by far the best voice assistant, and we'll be adding chats ubt like capabilities but then for AWS they basically said look there's all these language models out there and we're going to be neutral will have all kinds of different flavors kind of thing so whatever you want we'll have. [10:30] And the one of the concerns is these large language models use a ton of gpus and those are expensive. Azure is adding a ton of workloads from this and their conference call they went so far as to say. It's like accelerated growth dramatically at Azure they're getting all these loads that they would have never seen before thanks to their relationship and, they're scaling up this gpus and so it kind of feels early and Aang's like maybe Microsoft has got like this. Bit of an advantage over both Google and they WS so, so you know it was interesting because I'm saying all that because what happened is they announced their up a little bit that day and then they announced and they were down and they've been kind of sideways since then so and what was clear be quarter with AWS not as bad as you would think it would be you had the numbers would say oh the stock should go up 5 to 10% but they didn't because I don't think everyone really liked, body language around you know what's going on chat gbt and Amazon's response. [11:40] So that was a that was a long part but that was I thought it was kind of interesting. The whole world and like the last yeah six months has been turned upside down by this and it's always an option or that always gets my attention because this is where unique opportunities are created for disruption and all kinds of what happens is when my favorite books is the innovators dilemma when something new like this comes along, people that were previously the leaders have a really hard time adapting to it because they get baked into their business model so for example to pick on Google it's very hard for them to offer a chat interface on the core Google search because, every pixel of core Google search is like so highly optimized and them hitting their numbers relies on that that real estate. [12:28] Basically not changing that to change that real estate and experiment with something that is expensive and not monetized is. Almost impossible you know it's it will certainly make them lose mountains of Revenue and even worse on ibadah, so it's really kind of fascinating to Think Through the strategy here of what's everyone going to do and how do they adapt to this new world and to some extent Amazon not as bad as Google I would argue but that Amazon is a little bit of a in a pickle. Um it got even so bad also around the same time Jeff Bezos was at Coachella and he was just out there dancing and wearing this kind of fun butterfly shirt and everyone's kind of like you know it almost felt like fiddling while Rome burned so a lot of people are like and then you know so Disney's CEO has come back and a lot of people are projecting that maybe we'll see a day where like a Larry Page comes back to Google and a Bezos comes back to Amazon to it's going to be interesting to see what happens this next next three to six months are gonna be really fun to watch in the world of large trillion-dollar internet companies to see what's going down. Jason: [13:39] Oh for sure and I keep saying this but we're going to have to do another. Deep dive on AI and chechi because there are so many it's changing so, fast and there's this whole like shift from keywords to prompts and you know like all of you know Google's intrinsic strengths are suddenly becoming weaknesses there's this interesting battle, um between like these AI capabilities as destinations versus these AI capabilities as. Sort of infrastructure that that you add to any destination right and so you know the interesting thing about Chad gbt you can license the. The GPT for engine and build it in your own apps or your own website but 1.2 billion consumers a month, are going to chat. Open a i.com so that's now a destination on the web that's bigger than Bing. [14:40] Like move more people last month went to their website opening eyes website then went to Bing and that's a, Game Changer I get it's feels like a huge missed opportunity side note that there's not ads on that website yet I'm sure I'm sure that that that is coming in Italy but so there are all these like super interesting changes. I kind of feel like even if all that wasn't playing out like just the the fact that AWS is decelerating a little bit. [15:10] Would be the news from this earning thing and it's what everyone's talking about and it's almost a shame because it's kind of masking what otherwise like is a pretty remarkable quarter compared to like what most of their peers are likely to do. Scot: [15:25] Yeah yeah walk us through some of the highlights that you saw in the non aw site. Jason: [15:30] Well so the first thing if you look at North American gmv it grew 13% in q1 so that that is a deceleration from, their Q4 growth but like to put that in comparison. Us retail sales grew four percent in the first quarter so so you know this is kind of back to pre-pandemic levels where Amazon's growing. Despite being you know the largest or second largest retailer in the US depending on how you count growing quite a bit of water faster than the industry, you don't normally we would we compare Amazon's growth to all retailers growth but also to all of e-commerce has growth, so the US Department of Commerce comes out with their Q2 growth numbers in a couple weeks so May 18th I think if you want to mark your calendars will do a show and talk about that but. Just kind of interpreting the data and extrapolating. [16:31] U.s. e-commerce and q1's likely to grow about 10% which is kind of a recovery for e-commerce but still, that means Amazon the largest e-commerce player out there is growing faster than the industry as a whole which is. You know typical for Amazon but you know not very typical in the rest of the world so the retail story was, was really strong and it was driven almost exclusively by your favorite part of the retail Echo System the marketplace right it was almost all. [17:00] 3p sales which I want to say grew 16 percent. Or fifteen percent for the quarter so so 3p continues to be a super important part, and you know I always like to talk about the ad business ads were up 21% which is a, a deceleration of the ads business as well just like AWS but a couple interesting things, there's a ton of headwinds, for traditional dip digital ads right now as the economy is getting a little more challenging you know a lot of brands are cutting back on their spinned because the privacy issues they're cutting back on a lot of the traditional digital channels, um so you look at like metas ad business in q1 it grew three percent Google's ad business grew to percent. [17:55] Pinterest was the leader of those kind of traditional platforms their ad business grew five percent, and Amazon which is has a bigger ad business than Pinterest Amazon grew 21% so that that growth you know continues to be remarkable, um I did a quick back of the napkin estimate and I, I know AWS generated about 5 billion dollars in earn income for the quarter the ad unit probably generated 7.1 billion dollars in earning come for the quarter so quite a bit more, profit to the bottom line coming from that ad business then coming from from AWS, and then you know Amazon you know as they always do they kind of pepper and some favorable stats so they talked about how. They they had 26 million customers for same-day delivery in q1 which is fifty percent growth year over year so you know you. You kind of you've seen a lot of other retailers that as the economy has gotten kind of tough they've kind of. [18:58] Ratcheted back their service level a little bit like you're seeing a lot of people starting to charge more for returns you're starting to see delivery promises get stretched out a little bit and you know Amazon is kind of. Adjusting their returns policy as well but like they're they're all in on that fast same day delivery. And it seems like consumers are continuing to embrace that. Um there's this kind of big strategic shift that they talked about Scott that I know you've been falling which is kind of the shift from a national fulfillment model to a regional fulfillment model. And this is all about getting more efficiency so the idea is you know in the old model you placed an order and you know they ship from whatever Warehouse fulfillment center had the goods in stock so often that. Are shipping things from pretty far away, and mold you know in a you know your your multicart order could have Goods coming from a lot of different fulfillment centers and you know this quarter the focus is really on redesigning the whole fulfillment center to optimize. [20:06] How many trips they have to make to your house and how many, how much of the goods can all come from the same fulfillment center so there's a laser focus on kind of getting the inventory in each fulfillment center right for the market that it's serving, um and the you know in their investor call the CFO was talking about how like they're starting to they're already starting to unlock. Um significant improvements in their operating margins as a result of cutting down on the amount of trips in order to serve the same amount of gmv and they think there's a lot of Headroom to continue improving math if you've been following that kind of, Regional shift it almost feels like the Reinventing the you know kind of against innovators dilemma they're Reinventing their whole fulfillment model despite the fact that they have the. The world's largest fulfillment model. Scot: [21:00] Yeah yeah I think this is really interesting and in some ways maybe the go Puffs the world kind of showed him how to do this ironically enough and you know and this surge of same-day delivery I think they're having. I think you know in the early days the same day delivery I remember Sebastian going ham he was SVP saying yes he was at our conference and he said something like we just put out there to see and we were surprised by how many people use it and then you know they had data that indicated this is like five years ago that it was addictive because you. [21:37] We have forget which of us going this is your zero friction addiction so once you have one of these low-friction experiences you're like yeah yeah you know of course I would like it yeah, I'm running this morning all like it the same day but that's making them for deploying a lot more of the product to be able to satisfy that demand but they have the data to do it the key is it's a you know there's, there's this you know something like 300 million skus out there in the cloud that you can buy a small portion of those percentage-wise large sales wise is in the network of FCS and then the system learned what to, put at the edge near you and that same day thing there's a set of skus and it's probably down to 10,000 at that point, that they know those are the most frequently Asked seemed a things it's going to be things like toilet replenishable toiletries, dog food for me all those types personal items Healthcare Beauty and you know it's not the it's not the Xbox or something that can kind of weight well I guess some of that could be but you know there's plenty of stuff people are happy to wait for so, that that edge Network allows them to Ford deploy 5 to 10,000 excuse and get them to you really fast. Jason: [22:56] Yeah and I think what's interesting is that it turns out that the. The those skews that are needed for same-day delivery in Raleigh are not the same as the skills that are needed in Chicago and AI is really helping them sort of optimize. Those fulfillment centers and the numbers are actually a little bigger than your you're saying there are now like 300,000 same day skus in the system and in some markets there they have over 100,000 skus available for same-day so it y you know there. [23:26] They're kind of expanding from the head in skews to you know at least the chunky middle scuze. On that same day delivery and it and it seems like that's continuing to work for them. I just think it's you know again a lot of people that had you know the huge infrastructure lead the Amazon had him fulfillment centers you know would. But I find it hard to disrupt that model and pivot to a new model and it seems like you know Tim zones credit they're they're not afraid to disrupt themselves and it feels like that's kind of what they're doing here. And it seems like it least pull narrowly it's working you know they're also. Over the covid time there have been some capacity constraints and they rolled out a lot of technology to help help third-party sellers better manage their own. Capacity and you know I'm hearing from third-party sellers that that is going better that they have you know are better able. [24:29] Predict the cost and the capacity that will be available for them and they're not getting as many unpleasant surprises as they as they kind of had had in the past of that that stuff is all interesting, I also think Amazon's big enough that they're they're you know kind of a. A good surrogate for for the actual consumer economies at this point and so is interesting you know they talked about the Americans can consumer and you know the North America was where a lot of Amazon's growth was. Um They they had a statement that they're continuing to see the US consumer is being conscious that she's definitely moderated her spending on discretionary categories, she's trading down to more value oriented eizan's. [25:16] You know there continues to be healthy demand for Staples and you know I think we heard similar things from other big retailers like Wal-Mart and Target so that kind of felt in line but what was interesting was Europe. The growth is much slower but it was a significantly higher beat versus expectations than North America was and they had kind of an interesting editorial on Europe they said that, European demand while cautious came in better than expected, we see customer confidence increasing with inflation tickling down in the EU and that's kind of at odds with a bunch of other retailers that that are competing in Europe that are still you know kind of talking about, the consumer Demand Being really repressed in Europe and the European consumer really struggling due to even higher inflation then then what consumers are experiencing here in North America so, um it either sounds like Amazon's having a better go of it than a lot of other retailers in Europe, or Amazon is being the first one to sort of see the economy turning a little more favorable in Europe so. I kind of found that interesting. [26:42] Yeah well again you know the. Historically like Europe is smaller than North America for Amazon but it you know because it's smaller it was growing faster but you know there have been more. Challenges supply chain disruptions there's more uncertainty in a lot of the European economies and so you know it's like for global companies I'm particularly brands that do business everywhere. Um that European softness has been a challenge the one outlier of all that is luxury so it does feel. Like kind of a bifurcated economy that like luxury can you know is actually kind of bounce back in Europe and is continuing to do pretty pretty well worldwide while. High inflation is hurting a lot more of the kind of staple Industries a lot more. Scot: [27:35] Having Survived the Great Recession of 08 and 09 at Chow buzzer the weird thing about the data was the luxury segment accelerated you have to have the the wealthy folks do find during economic downturns turns out. Jason: [27:50] Yeah this was a weird one in that like that's for that was for sure true where the demand was shifted in unusual ways because often you have a lot of. Really wealthy consumers are also tend to be really mobile consumer so you have, historical you'd have a lot of really wealthy people from China that would go to France and buy a lot of luxury goods and in covid of course nobody was going anywhere so there was this huge, spike in luxury goods in China so like the overall worldwide demand for luxury was very high but there were these weird mismatches where the demand was not coming from the markets that it typically came from and now it feels like it's. Reverting more it's starting to revert to more traditional. [28:37] So there was a another interesting earnings call this morning. Scot: [28:41] Yeah so Shopify came out with their earnings and they've had just kind of set the stage. In the during covid they were Off to the Races and they've had a really hard time in the last year kind of in that post covid era as they invested so much and then covid the e-commerce growth reverted to the mean as you've been, so good at pointing out and they thought it would just continue up into the right and so they did about a ten percent reduction in force I think is a year ago maybe a little longer, and so then this morning they came out and they beat Lowered Expectations to put this in perspective of their growth has slowed to 25% and they were consistently growing well north of 50% so they're they're definitely, this was good for a while there were kind of Contracting but now at least they're back to growth they are losing money but they should get back to profitability here in a quarter or two but the big surprise was you know if you recall they were going to take on Amazon and they started really building out some fulfillment and they bought a couple companies to do that and started building out this whole infrastructure called Shopify fulfillment Network or sfm. [30:00] So they announced on the call today that they're just basically abandoning that whole strategy and the assets they previously bought an aggregate for over two billion dollars they sold to a company called Flex port for a billion so that had to hurt so basically a billion dollar loss on the strategy and they basically said you know the future is AI and that's where we're going to put our effort, and then when they sell this unit there also some people go with that but they're also announced they're doing at 23% that would include some of those people it's not it's not entirely clear. [30:36] How many will be core Shopify versus the people leaving with the sfn I think it's. Relatively small you know I don't think that's happened was like this huge. People operation like you have an Amazon anyway so they're going to reduce headcount by 11,000 people 29k so from 11,000 29k, so about 23% reduction these things are always kind of. [31:06] Little tricky emotionally because you feel for those people that are losing their jobs and found out this morning that's going to be no fun, but then Wall Street loves a good reduction for us because that means more profits oh, the stock this is a huge win for the stock because Wall Street has hated hated hated this idea if you take this super high margin software business and you layer in a super low margin fulfillment business, so you know Wall Street this is part of the innovators dilemma, once you've baked your margins in at 85% or whatever you can't then go to Wall Street and say we're going to bring that down 15% 270 because we're going to be fulfillment and that's a, yeah 30% margin business your blend that in with our 85 you get us to 70 or whatever it is, so so Wall Street was very happy to see them abandoned us, it does raise the question one of the reasons they got in this is you and I talked a lot about Shopify versus Amazon and you know the same time. Amazon is raising the bar on e-commerce we just talked about this two same day, Shopify was going to arm the rebels so that they could at least keep up with two day now they're abandoning that you know there's gonna continue to be, yeah this could be a big moment in history where Shopify messes up and you know. [32:29] What's a I going to solve if you have this great product recommendation or something that doesn't show up for five days in Amazon eats the Shopify Merchants lunch because they just are better at Logistics so this is this is a big decision throwing in the towel and it's going to be interesting to see, if this is wise or not I obviously lean towards I don't think this is going to be a great in decision for him. Jason: [32:57] Yeah it is tricky. The you know I would also mention there's this so I you know scary service from Amazon looming on the Shopify Horizon that it's not clear Shopify his really declared what they want they're going to do with yet which is the. The by with prime service which is you know in in effect to use that really solid Amazon Fulfillment Network even when you sell stuff on Shopify. And so you know maybe they're they're dumping on the Shopify fulfillment Network stuff in there just gonna see the Fulfillment Amazon we'll have to see. Um I do I've decided to correct one thing you said like Shopify is huge on talking about e-commerce regress to the mean. That's actually not true right get when they talk about that they're talking about the ratio of e-commerce sales to retail sales and it's partly true for that. That you know we kind of went from 14 or 15 percent of all sales being online to 17 or 18 percent and we bounced back down to 15%. Um you know that that shape varied while we you know depending on the category so image digitally immature categories like Grocery and Automotive had kind of a permanent Spike whereas, like apparel you know had kind of a temporary bump. [34:23] In absolute dollars e-commerce is way bigger than before the pandemic e-commerce is 90% up from from 2019 and so when when they kind of use that. As an excuse for the layoffs I would say like don't buy it right like that. [34:41] There's a lot more demand for digital Goods than there were in 2019 and Shopify isn't laying people off because that demand has receded like throwing people off because they haven't perfectly figured out what the right business model is and from my standpoint. They're still a little dyslexic on who they're even trying to serve they still have all this language around you know serving the small Independent Business the mom-and-pop and arming the rebels and all that but like you know when you listen all the success stories in their earnings calls. It's it's Staples it's why it's it's you know it's it's bigger or midsize specialty retailers that are moving to the platform, it's not the rebels I, Kendall Jackson and Kendall Jenner and Staples are not the rebels and so I don't know like I think they like that that narrative but like I'm not sure they've come a perfectly aligned their product offering to the. The companies that are like driving the bulk of their gmv growth and when they you know do focus on the long tail Mom and Pops. It really makes that gmv number kind of office gated because there's so much churn over there right and they go or gmv went up 25%. Was that because like all your customers are thriving and they're all growing or is it because you just added way more companies that will have a nine-month mortality rate than you then you did the quarter before. [36:09] So I think it's like I definitely like there's a lot of strong, sort of advantages and and experiences still in the Shopify ecosystem and. Feel like shot pay is getting some traction the shop app has got a lot more traction than I originally predicted and now there are some legitimate. Marketplace features in there there's a lots of things going for them I certainly would not write them off but I do think. Like in the next couple of quarters we need to see some more clarity about like what they want to be and where their growth is really going to come. Scot: [36:46] Yeah yeah it's going to be we'll be tracking it closely on the show as we have them so it's going to be interesting to see I don't think either of us had this in our predictions though sadly. Jason: [36:57] Yeah no I mean I was definitely caught by I never thought this Acquisitions made sense but I certainly thought that you know they would hold on to him longer so I don't know I guess if you're an investor like. Like once you realize it was the wrong decision like there's probably something good about like cutting bait quickly instead of trying to. Drag it around drag it out longer just because you you don't want to own up to the mistake. So anyway that feels like a pretty good recap of the two big earnings there's a you know a bunch of the traditional retailers will be record reporting over the next four weeks and of course we'll have US Department of Commerce data, including q1 e-commerce. Later this month so lots of reasons to have another new show and I still do think we got to get that. That large language Model A I show on the on the books. Scot: [37:52] Yeah yeah we will we're through our vacation period and we should have some time to lay that down and Jason you've got a keynote tomorrow and you got some slides to work on buddy so we're going to make this a short one in the pantheon of Jason and Scot show lengthy episodes. Jason: [38:09] Yeah yeah we'll give it a few minutes back to our listeners and I will go write a keynote for tomorrow. Scot: [38:15] Awesome it's always good when you're up against deadlines so you're going to crush it. Jason: [38:20] I feel like the one thing I have going for me is the present the content will be very Timely. Scot: [38:26] Good yep fresh like. Jason: [38:30] Awesome Scott thinks every very much everyone for listening as always enjoyed the show we sure would love it if you jump on iTunes and give us that five star review and until next time happy commercing!

Dom welcomes Republican candidate for Philadelphia Mayor David Oh back onto the Dom Giordano Program to hear how his campaign has been going since they last spoke. First, Dom and Oh speak about Oh's potential Democratic contenders, with Oh suggesting that he believes Gym or Rhynhart to be the front-runner, which Dom notes will allow Oh to easily separate himself from the other candidate due to Gym and Rhynhart's more-Progressive approach than their cohorts. Then, Oh and Dom discuss public safety, with Oh telling that the issue will remain the primary issue through a primary election, explaining the importance of the safety of Philadelphians and the impact that has on both livability and the economy. Dom asks Oh how he'd approach working with Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner, with Oh noting that the official is indeed duly elected, but laying out his plan if things did not go positively in a new working relationship.

Welcome to Season 3, Episode 3 of Song Chronicles. Our guest today is singer and songwriter Billy Valentine, who just released a new album called "a masterclass in soul interpretation" by Record Collector. Billy Valentine & The Universal Truth was chosen as the first record for the relaunch of Flying Dutchman, the iconic imprint known for releases by Duke Ellington, Gil-Scott Heron, and Leon Thomas. Billy was born in West Virginia as one of thirteen children and later moved to Columbus, Ohio where his parents owned a nightclub. His brother Alvin introduced him to the path of professional entertainer. At 15 years old, Billy booked his first paying gig after sitting in with his brother Alvin during a performance at Leon's Cocktail Lounge in Patterson, NJ. After a stint in the original touring company of The Wiz, Billy and his brother John formed The Valentine Brothers. Together they recorded four albums and had a breakout Reagan-era protest single "Money's Too Tight (To Mention)." The Valentine Brothers After the duo split, Billy began a songwriting collaboration with Bob Thiele, Jr and Phil Roy. The trio's songs were recorded by Bonnie Raitt, Pops and Mavis Staples, The Neville Brothers, and his hero Ray Charles. We talk about the "pinch me" moment of hearing Ray's recording of his song, the title track of the album My World. Ray Charles's 1993 album My World Billy's incredible vocal interpretations made him a sought-after demo singer for songwriting greats like Burt Bacharach & Hal David and Gerry Goffin. Bob Thiele, Jr. says it was Billy's voice that made the songs they wrote together irresistible, making Billy "the secret weapon of nearly every songwriter in LA." We talk about how Billy came to sing on the soundtrack of Boston Legal. Burt Bacharach and Billy Valentine Recording during the COVID-19 pandemic and the Black Lives Matter protests in 2020 brought Billy back to the '60s, being brought up in Ohio during the Kent State and Vietnam War protests. He chose to reinterpret iconic protest songs by Gil-Scott Heron, Curtis Mayfield, and Stevie Wonder for his new record Billy Valentine & The Universal Truth. We talk about the permanence of protest songs in our cultural landscape. After many decades in the business, Billy says he is finally feeling good in his own skin and proud of how he made these songs sound. We talk about how hard artists are on themselves and how pleasing yourself is the hardest part. He has an ageless quality about him and describes himself as having a "young heart." Enjoy this conversation with a storied interpreter of songs.
IT'S TIME TO WATCH THE MUPPETS! This week with special guest Joan Baez. Distracted rants include but are not limited to Pops', Beauregard, early 00s movies, Jerry Springer, flashing/mooning, The Witches (1990 film), Crispin Glover, The Boss Baby, religious movies, Sleeping Beauty, and much more!"Rizzo and the other rats bother Kermit for a spot on the show, so Kermit asks Beauregard to "take care of" them. Of course, Bo takes that literally, and treats them as guests. They make Beau their president, and manipulate him into giving them food. Eventually the rats become so bold that they decide to take over the show. Kermit says Beau has to kick them out, or he goes with them. Beau chooses to stick with his new rat friends, until Miss Piggy enlightens him."Follow us:Twitter.com/ittwtmInstagram.com/ittwtm

Hour 1: The Knicks beat the Heat to even the series 1-1. Boomer thought they showed a lot of effort and Gio said a number of calls went the Knicks way. The NBA really needs this series to go seven games. It was an old school slugfest last night and contested completely throughout the game. Gio thinks if Jimmy Butler played last night that could have meant a Heat win. Aaron Rodgers was back at MSG last night, front row for Knicks/Heat. The Knicks showed Carmelo Anthony on the screen with ‘Knicks Legend' under his name. Boomer said that would be like him being called a ‘Jets Legend'. Jerry is here for his first update and starts with sounds from the Knicks win over the Heat last night. The great Ian Eagle was on the call. Tom Thibodeau loved the overall effort. The Lakers took game 1 from the Warriors and talked ‘load management' after the game. Joel Embiid won the MVP and said he was motivated by the guys on TNT saying he had to be dominant. The Yankees beat the Guardians behind a Willie Calhoun HR and Jerry has John Sterling's HR call. Not great. Max Scherzer talked about getting Justin Verlander back and being back himself. Aaron Rodgers was on with Pat McAfee and talked about getting a nice ovation at MSG. In the final segment of the hour, the Jets will not be picking up the fifth year option on Mekhi Becton. Boomer said he should be one of the guys that gains the most by playing with Aaron Rodgers. A caller didn't think Joel Embiid deserved the MVP award.

When you think of true Rock Royalty, there's one name that comes to mind: Freddie Mercury - the man, the myth, the mustache. As the flamboyant frontman of Queen, he was a shooting star leaping through the sky, defying the laws of gravity and having a ball. But tragically, he would burn out far too soon. In this special 2 part episode, we'll be exploring the real life of a Musical Champion and the terrible circumstances that led to his death on a quiet Sunday afternoon in 1991. If you're looking for a feel-good fantasy, go watch the movie “Bohemian Rhapsody.” This podcast may not be your bag. For the rest of you, grab your crown, raise your mic stand and get ready for a Killer time. In this first chapter, we cover Freddie's rise to the top of the Pops as the King of Queen. The band's worldwide success brought him fame and fortune and everything that goes with it. And by the end of the 1970s, his life revolved around sex, drugs and rock n roll. But unfortunately, there would be a heavy price.
