Ross Shafer made his mark creating a popular brand of mountain bikes, called Salsa, and a line of small but crucial bicycle parts that no one had brought to the market before. Now he's making what might be the world's most beautiful “pedal steel guitar.” Could Shafer's relentless eclecticism offer a model for a second Renaissance?"From bicycles to “pedal steel” guitars: One maker's quirky frontiers" originally appeared in the Summer 2016 issue of Craftsmanship Quarterly, a multimedia, online magazine about artisans, innovators, and the architecture of excellence.

On this week's show, we... kick off 2023 by celebrating our 100th podcast!  tell one of my favorite stories  look forward to the next hundred episodes All this & much, much less! Welcome to our first ever Debts Storytime! I've actually told this story once or twice when we were a mere mortal radio show. It's a true story I've told countless times IRL over the years. A few years back, I told the story during a presentation at work. You can still watch the video on YouTube, but the sound quality is not great. Preparing to tell that story in front of a crowd inspired me to rethink how I tell it. I like to think the added context makes the story breathe, and that it could easily fit in amongst the many stories I've enjoyed over the years on The Moth or This American Life. I hope you enjoy listening to it as much as I enjoyed telling it. Here's to the next hundred episodes! Debts No Honest Man Can Pay is over 2 rock-solid hours of musical eclectica & other noodle stories. The show started in 2003 at WHFR-FM (Dearborn, MI), moved to WGWG-FM (Boiling Springs, NC) in 2006 & Plaza Midwood Community Radio (Charlotte, NC) in 2012, with a brief pit-stop at WLFM-FM (Appleton, WI) in 2004.

“I didn't start The Stable for it to be big. But it probably had to be big because we had a big idea.” Chad Hetherington is the co-founder and CEO of The Stable, a “next generation” retail rep group that was acquired by Accenture in the summer of 2022, after just seven years in business. The Stable takes an omnichannel approach to launching products and has help digitally native brands such as The Ring and Quip go to market both online and in stores. Hetherington shares his path from Adaliade, Australia to sales rep for Quirky, a platform that crowd sourced product ideas and developed them. That experience opened his eyes to the need for a new approach to retail rep groups that would take multiple channels into a account. The Stable launched in Minneapolis in 2015 and within two years expanded to Seattle and raised venture capital—a rarity for a service agency. By the time Accenture made an offer, The Stable had grown to more than 500 employees with offices in Los Angeles, Seattle, and Bentonville, Arkansas, six acquisitions under its belt, and expertise in Amazon, Shopify, Etsy, and social media. Now running the company under Accenture, Hetherington says “I'm on the phone with people all over the world, trying to solve issues and problems their clients are facing around commerce.” He talks about what's next in retail. Following our conversation with Hetherington, we go back to the classroom with the University of St. Thomas Opus College of Business where Gino Giovanelli teaches digital marketing. He talks about “the power of scale” and advises businesses and founders to change their thinking if they want to achieve the sort of growth The Stable has enjoyed. “Don't think tactically about marketing,” Giovanelli says. “Think strategically.”

Thanksgiving is just around the corner, and families around the country are uniting over a love for one another – and a love for food. And from turkey to candied yams to cranberry sauce, Thanksgiving delicacies can seem like their own entity.  Famed New Orleans food writer Ian McNulty actually once said the same thing about the food at Jazz Fest. Back in April, WWNO's Carly Berlin spent an afternoon with McNulty at the Fairgrounds, tasting everything from Crawfish Monica and praline beignets. In honor of the upcoming holiday, we give this food-focused story a second listen.  Yesterday, WRKF's Karen Henderson brought us a conversation about The Creole Revolt of 1841, the largest successful slave rebellion in US history. As noted, not all escaped slaves went north, some went south to the Caribbean, and others found refuge in the cypress swamps of Louisiana by forming “maroon communities” with Native Americans. Today, we re-listen to a conversation on this subject with Kathe Hambrick, founder of the River Road African American Museum in Donaldsonville, Louisiana. The NOLA Project, theatre for the bold, continues its season with a big side of humor as it presents 'CRAIGSLISTED.' NOLA Project Co-Artistic Director Brittany N. Williams tells us about this quirky, dark comedy's New Orleans debut.  Today's episode of Louisiana Considered was hosted by Diane Mack. Our managing producer is Alana Schreiber and our digital editor is Katelyn Umholtz. Our engineers are Garrett Pittman, Aubry Procell, and Thomas Walsh.  You can listen to Louisiana Considered Monday through Friday at 12:00 and 7:30 pm.

There's a lot of bad TV out there, but there is rarely a show that Anna feels morally obligated to not watch.  Until now… (:31) Do you a specific way you buy clothes?  Raven will buy anything that fits without a second thought, but his wife Alicia is far more picky… (3:41) Not every shoe can be worn with socks, but if you're trying on shoes with just your bare feet, that's all I need to know about you! (7:41) As a parent, you always do some things differently with your second child then with your first, but one article has laid out a few differences that they claim every parent goes through.  Raven decided to fact check it with Anna! (10:49) People Magazine has given Chris Evans the title of Sexiest Man Alive!  But they also found the time to give titles to every member of the Anna and Raven show too! (14:49) Anna has three crazy news stories and Raven is gonna pick one to talk about!  Today his options are; a gun hidden in a piece of poultry, an attempted egging of a monarch, and a CEO who passed out drunk in the wrong house! (18:35) Do you have any weird habits when you travel by plane?  Anna was in tears when she realized she wouldn't be able to travel to see her brother on a very specific part of the plane! (22:33) Have you ever fallen into something? Three different people in the news have fallen into something in the last week, including a major celebrity! (30:19) Parker's brother recently started dating again after his wife passed away earlier this year. Parker thinks it's too soon and wants to confront his brother about it. Parker's wife, Samantha, says that it's none of his business, plus, it's been eight months, they didn't have children, and he's only 35. If he's ready to date, then it's totally acceptable. What would you do? (37:03) Tim has got a shot at $3200! All he has to do is beat Raven in pop culture trivia! (45:50)

i can't do impersonations. i'm a terrible actor. i don't play an instrument and my singing leaves a little bit to be desired. i don't have 2 different coloured eyes or any cute patterned freckles, and i've never had an overly wacky or weird job – though, i was once asked to be a phone sex operator, but i never did it. ooh, that would have been good for this episode. i thought i'd have to dig deep to find some revealing things for this episode, but it turns out, 'interesting' and 'quirky' come in all shapes, sizes & stories. with special guests: @sj.snaps, @imorehead, @lolaspeaking, @simplykristyd & @dirtbagdanno. x. follow the podcast on instagram: @thisisitactually follow me & the podcast on twitter: @jenibesworth
