For more than a decade, digitally-native, vertically integrated brands (Warby Parker, Allbirds, et al)--as well as other innovative direct-to-consumer (companies (from Wayfair to Rent-the-Runway to Poshmark)--have sucked up a lot of attention in the industry and attracted many billions of venture capital. Yet as more face the harsh light of the public markets we're learning that some are rather small businesses and most are losing quite a lot of money.Does the recent meltdown of Casper suggest that the sky high valuations of DTC brands are about to crash back to earth, or should we be more sanguine about the "growth over profit" strategy that most are pursuing. In particular, we discuss why the idea that significant direct-to-consumer (DTC) companies could be built without physical stores was a flawed investment premise and why it's turned out to be so difficult to profitably scale many of these brands. We also remind listeners that vertically integrated DTC retail is far from new, and wonder why legacy brands (Duluth Trading, Lands' End) carry anemic valuations relative to the insurgent brands that are far smaller and continue to hemorrhage cash. But first we open up with the Top 3 retail stories that caught our attention this week, including continued strength in US retail sales despite waning consumer confidence, what to take away for the most recent batch of retailer earnings reports and unpack just what the heck happened at Casper.Photo by Jp Valery on UnsplashSteve Dennis is an advisor, keynote speaker and author on strategic growth and business innovation.

Russia is a formidable adversary that is currently undergoing transformative modernization. Its combat proficient force has inculcated lessons learned from recent combat operations in Syria, Crimea, and eastern Ukraine; selectively invested in niche capabilities (e.g., autonomy, robotics, and artificial intelligence) to add precision strike to its already formidable fires, enhance decision making, augment combined arms formations and logistics support, and safeguard its Soldiers; and professionalized to a more balanced ratio of contract to conscript Soldiers. A master of information confrontation, Russia employs cyber, information operations, and disinformation to offset any conventional force asymmetries. Above all, Russia remains a persistent, vice a declining power!

Paul Alexander was a professor of health research at McMaster University in Canada before joining the administration as a health policy advisor. And he's the one who came up with the Covid response that probably is the best one: Just let Covid spread. Stew sits down with Paul to talk about vaccine mandates and Trump. Last week, one of Congressman Paul Gosar's staff posted an animated video on Gosar's Twitter account. All they did was photoshop Gosar's face over the face of the show's main character, so the clip shows him fighting the forces of evil, which are represented by AOC and Joe Biden. Speaker Nancy Pelosi has called for both an ethics inquiry and a law enforcement investigation of Gosar, it is bipartisan too as shown by Kevin McCarthy stripping Gosar of committee assignments. She is literally babbling that he should face criminal penalties for a cheesy video. There's a new pair of “studies” the Powers That Be are hyping up. The first one claims that there is a higher risk of heart disease right now. And the cause is...you guessed it, it's anxiety about Covid! A report in the Journal of the American Heart Association says that very soon we'll see an increase in babies born with congenital heart defects, and it's because of...climate change! DeAnna Lorraine joins us to discuss. Of all the insane things we're doing in our frenzy to “Defeat” Covid, perhaps the most insane of all is our ongoing purge of the armed forces. We have tens of thousands of skilled, highly-trained personnel who are going to be forced out or possibly imprisoned for not getting the shot. Doctor Sigoloff joins us.

In today's episode, we are  jumping into why personal branding matters regardless of your career path, and why it's important for each of us to invest in it. Our special guest today is Nancy Surak, a Senior Advisor and Managing Broker for Land Advisors Organization's Tampa Bay office.  After wanting to level up her personal brand for over 10 years, she made the decision last fall to go "all in" and she shares her journey with us on the show today!She's a total rock star at what she does and now she's got a beautiful, very visible, personal brand that allows her to shine even brighter, attract new opportunities and clients, and position herself as the expert she is in media and through speaking engagements. Tune in to hear Nancy's story, why she thinks it's important for everyone to take their personal brand seriously, and lessons she learned going through this process with Allison. Connect with Nancy:https://www.instagram.com/nancysurakwww.nancysurak.comNancy's Brand Launch: https://www.allisonwalshconsulting.com/post/i-love-it-when-women-go-for-it Connect with Allison: https://www.instagram.com/allisonwalshhttps://www.allisonwalshconsulting.com/elevate2022 Goal Setting Masterclass: https://bit.ly/2022goalsmasterclass Greetabl: greetabl.com/allisonwalsh About Nancy:Nancy Surak is a Senior Advisor and Managing Broker for Land Advisors Organization's Tampa Bay office. She has more than 20 years of experience in commercial real estate, specializing in land brokerage since 2005 and earning recognition by Land Advisors Organization as a top producer since joining the firm in 2015.Nancy is known for her expertise in transactional negotiations and marketing. Her in-depth understanding of the Tampa Bay land market and the objectives of the parties involved in the deals she is working with allow her to secure the best terms for her clients while ensuring the purchasers also value and trust her input. One of the important tools that Nancy has at her disposal is Land Advisors Organization's proprietary technology, which maps growth trends, area transactions and land development. Combined with her knowledge of the market, technical understanding of transactions and communication skills, she stands apart from others in the Tampa Bay CRE sphere and has established herself as a trusted advisor, which has allowed her to successfully negotiate and close on many of the most significant land deals in the area.Nancy has become one of the most trusted land advisors in Florida thanks to her ability to not only anticipate and navigate complex transactions, but importantly, her ability to maintain the confidentiality of a deal as the parties are working it. Where many brokers may want to brag about being involved with a major deal, Nancy keeps it ‘close to the vest' to protect the parties involved and give them the time required to work through the details and terms by keeping it confidential – she is keen on protecting her clients and the integrity of the deal first, rather than seeking notoriety for her involvement in high-profile transactions.

Why are private branding strategies becoming increasingly important to the retail industry? We unpack this question in detail, first clarifying some often confusing terminology, while also making the important distinction between "private labels" and "private brands." Mostly we center the important role of exclusive products in providing competitive differentiation, minimizing web-enabled price shopping and improving margins. We also call out how retailers young and old, vertically integrated and multi-line, are doubling down on private brands as a way to become more remarkable.What's behind big shifts at Amazon, Target and Bed, Bath & Beyond? Why are DNVB's partnering up with legacy players like Nordstrom for semi-exclusive distribution?  Why are Nike and others moving away from wholesale distribution to more exclusive, DTC channels? We take it all on!But first we open up the with the Top 3 retail stories that caught our attention this past week, including some take-aways from "Singles Day" (aka the 11.11 Global Shopping Festival) and what to make of the big bounce back in sales and earnings for some legacy players--and the lack of profitability among many so-called disruptor brands. While we're not exactly sure just what the heck the "Metaverse" is (a second life for Second Life?), we do take on Facebook's (er, Meta's) plans to market it through their own physical stores.Steve Dennis is an advisor, keynote speaker and author on strategic growth and business innovation.

Throughout the world, the death penalty is in decline. Since 1976, more than 75 countries have abolished the death penalty, and many others have severely curtailed its use or abolished it in practice, if not in law. While this trend is reflected in parts of the United States, the federal government and many states retain capital punishment. How does this affect our country's standing in the international community, particularly as a moral authority on issues like human rights? Christopher Wright Durocher speaks with Kristina Roth and Elizabeth Zitrin to answer this and other questions about how the world views the death penalty. ----------------- Join the Progressive Legal Movement Today: ACSLaw.org Today's Host: Christopher Wright Durocher, ACS Senior Director of Policy and Program Guest: Kristina Roth, Senior Advocate for Criminal Justice Programs at Amnesty International USA Guest: Elizabeth Zitrin, Vice Chair of the Board of Directors of Witness to Innocence and past President and Senior Advisor of the World Coalition Against the Death Penalty Link: The Death Penalty in America Link: Amnesty International on the Death Penalty Link: World Coalition Against the Death Penalty Visit the Podcast Website: Broken Law Podcast Email the Show: Podcast@ACSLaw.org Follow ACS on Social Media: Facebook | Instagram | Twitter | LinkedIn | YouTube ----------------- Production House: Flint Stone Media Copyright of American Constitution Society 2021.

After describing ARLIS' mission areas and how University Affiliated Research Centers fit into the larger United States national security ecosystem, Matt discusses various cognitive security topics--including the need for a Cognitive Security Proving Ground. His vision is a constellation of capabilities, ranges, and activities working in harmony to provide the best available reflection of human behavior and sociotechnical complexity for experimentation, testing, evaluation, and training to improve capabilities, enhance effectiveness, and reduce risk for operations in the information environment.

His primary research interest is in modeling the socio-technical complexity of the modern information environment to support meaningful training in the human domain of competition and conflict. Professor Venhaus has dedicated his entire professional life to influencing human behavior to achieve U.S. national security objectives. From tribal villages in sub-Saharan Africa, across Europe, throughout the Middle East, North Africa, and South Asia, he sought to influence the attitudes, perceptions, and ultimately the behaviors of foreign audiences. In each endeavor, Professor Venhaus found that successful national security-related influence combines an empathetic understanding of the drivers of human decision-making with an appreciation for the enabling advantages of technology.  Before joining ARLIS, Professor Venhaus was a Senior Advisor for Mission Integration and at the MITRE Corporation. He led, shaped, and managed MITRE's support to USCYBERCOM bydeveloping and overseeing the execution of cross-cutting technical strategies to increase MITRE's impact in advancing the effectiveness of cyber operations. He has a deep and abiding passion for the practical application of influence and persuasion in competition and conflict as technological advancements drive new realities in how people consume and process information.  Professor Venhaus served over 28 years in the U.S. Army, primarily in persuasive communications (PSYOP). He designed, implemented, and managed multi-media campaigns on four continents across the full spectrum of peace and armed conflict. Professor Venhaus retired from the Army in 2014 after serving in the Pentagon as the principal staff advisor to the Secretary of Defense for information operations.  His published works include a special report entitled “Why Youth Join al-Qaeda,” which examined case studies of individuals who became foreign fighters to discern their behavioral motivations and seeks to establish a usable strategy to divert future generations from the path to extremism. He has also authored several classified reports on applying persuasive communications against malicious cyber actors and in the competition below the level of armed conflict. A 1987 graduate of the United States Military Academy at West Point, Professor Venhaus is a plank-holder in the PSYOP Regiment and a Life Member of the PSYOP Veterans Association. He has also been awarded a Master's Degree in International Relations from Troy University and Masters of Professional Studies in Strategic Public Relations from George Washington University. Besides his duties at ARLIS, Professor Venhaus is the Executive Director of the Information Professionals Association. When the weather is not conducive to sailing with his wife of 28 years and their dog, he lives in Crownsville, Maryland.

According to the MD Center for Economic Policy, MD spends about $1 billion dollars per year incarcerating roughly 20,000 people convicted of crimes. A third of them come from the city of Baltimore. In 2015, our state spent $17 million dollars locking up people from one neighborhood alone: Sandtown Winchester in West Baltimore. For many of those who are given long sentences, their lives end while they are behind bars. An essay in the Baltimore Sun a couple of months ago about palliative care for prisoners when they are diagnosed with terminal illnesses caught our attention, and today, we'd like to explore the issue of death with dignity for those who are imprisoned.

Cheers,Scott, Jake, & MichaelBourbon Lens About Horse Soldier Bourbon Horse Soldier Bourbon is an all American, ultra-premium whiskey crafted by the legendary U.S. Army Green Berets who answered the country's call days after 9/11 with a daring insertion, on horseback, into northern Afghanistan. This brave and unconventional act earned them the moniker of “Horse Soldiers” and inspired them to create their awarding winning bourbon. The team has been featured in the Hollywood movie 12 Strong, the CNN documentary Legion of Brothers, and is memorialized by America's Response Monument located at Ground Zero in New York City. When the team first set out on their journey to make Horse Soldier Bourbon, they wanted to ensure they were fully immersing themselves in the art of making whiskey and learning all they could about the ingredients used, distillation, aging and design. They therefore traveled around the world visiting distilleries and brand houses to gain more information and understand everything that went into making a stellar bourbon. The result was the ability to successfully combine their new knowledge and whiskey making skills with the meticulous precision, process, and habits they gained in the military and translate both into distilling the world-class Horse Soldier Bourbon brand.  Founded in 2015, Horse Soldier Bourbon encompasses three core elements that make it the legendary spirit it is today: Authentic, the team behind the brand are an integral part of the country's history; All-American, each ingredient used to make Horse Soldier Bourbon is from the U.S, including its glass bottle, which is molded by steel recovered from the World Trade Center to commemorate the lives lost but never forgotten; And Award-Winning, to date the brand has won more than 30 awards from many of the industry's most prestigious competitions, including three Double Gold Medals at the San Francisco International Spirits Competition. Today, the team's steadfast mission is to continue to create an award-winning, legendary line of bourbons, the embodiment of the American spirit and the Horse Soldier's legacy in a bottle. Comprised of rich and complex wheat-forward whiskies, the core Horse Soldier Portfolio includes the Straight Bourbon, Small Batch Bourbon, and Barrel Strength Bourbon in addition to limited edition expressions launched annually, such as the Commander's Select Limited Edition Release.  Looking ahead, Horse Soldier Bourbon will be making its forever home in Somerset, Kentucky. Located on 225 acres of rolling countryside, they put together an award winning team of international and local architects, experiential designers, and engineers to create the Horse Soldier Distillery experience.  The new distillery will become the most southern stop on the Kentucky Bourbon Trail, joining the family of iconic distilleries that have made their home there and ensuring the Horse Soldier legacy lives on for decades to come. The Horse Soldier Bourbon Portfolio: Horse Soldier Straight Bourbon (SRP: $49.99 | 43.5% ABV):  The brand's classic recipe of authentic bourbon is made with corn, rye, and malted barley and won a Double Gold at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition in 2019. It is a balanced and robust bourbon aged a minimum of 3 years to ensure its distinctive, mellow character.  Horse Soldier Small Batch Bourbon (SRP: $69.99 | 47.5% ABV): Extraordinarily complex with notes of vanilla, ginger, and cherries, this “wheated” bourbon is made from small batches of meticulously blended mature whiskey, aged for a minimum of 6 years in new American white oak barrels. It received a Gold Medal (95 Points) at the New York International Spirits Competition and 92 Points at the International Wine & Spirits Competition.  Horse Soldier Barrel Strength Bourbon (SRP: $84.99 | 54% ABV): A uniquely complex “wheated” uncut and non-chill filtered bourbon that has matured for a minimum of 6 years in new American white oak barrels. This all-natural, all-American product just won a Double Gold in the 2021 San Francisco World Spirits Competition and was included in the Top 100 Spirits of 2020. It also earned 93 points at the New York International Spirits Competition and 92 points at the International Wine and Spirits Competition, making it a truly prized bourbon. The soft red winter wheat in the recipe provides intriguing depth and complexity to this ultimate American spirit. Commander's Select Limited Edition Single Batch Release (SRP: $595 | 65.5% ABV): An outstanding and award-winning limited annual release, most recently winning Double Gold at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition in 2019, the Commanders Select barrels are meticulously chosen each year by both Commander and Chief Warrant Officer of Special Forces ODA Team 595. Sales from the Commander's Select are all donated to maintaining the America Response Monument located at Ground Zero in New York City.

The highly competitive face-off between former Democratic Governor Terry McAuliffe and Republican nominee Glenn Youngkin for the Virginia gubernatorial race continues and remains very close, as we approach Election Day next week. The outcome will have both statewide and national implications, including a possible outlook to next year's Midterms. The race could also impact President Biden's current agenda as Democrats continue to negotiate and try to get the votes necessary to pass the social spending bill and the bipartisan infrastructure bill.  Senator Bill Cassidy (R-LA) and Senior Advisor to the DNC Brad Woodhouse weigh in.   Countless products in high demand from U.S. consumers continue to be in short supply due to the pandemic creating a disruptive crisis within the global supply chain. Every aspect of the supply chain from factory production to freight shipping has faced major obstacles and as a result, everything from computer chips to toilet paper has been in short supply. Gerald Storch, CEO of Storch Advisors and former CEO of Hudson Bay Company and Toys "R" Us joins to break down how retailers can expect a major increase in sales over the holidays as consumers feel free of major pandemic concerns, why inflation has not yet scared Americans from buying products and how the labor shortages and bottlenecks are creating major issues.   Plus, commentary by FOX News Legal Analyst Gregg Jarrett.

Imagine being so drawn to a pursuit as a kid, it consumes most of your waking hours, rapidly becomes your identity, and is the thing you believe you'll devote your life to, and then, in the blink of an eye, it's taken away. That's what happened to Maya Shankar, who fell in love with the violin as a small child, studied it with love and devotion, was being mentored by the legendary Itzhak Perlman, and was sure it would be her profession for life. Until, an injury took it all away in the blink of an eye. How that moment affected her, and how she'd eventually discover a new, equally fulfilling devotion years later - human behavior and cognitive science - is a big part of today's conversation, along with a deep dive into how we change our minds.Maya is currently the Senior Director of Behavioral Economics at Google and is the Creator, Host, and Executive Producer of “A Slight Change of Plans”, a podcast with Pushkin Industries. Maya previously served as a Senior Advisor in the Obama White House, where she founded and served as Chair of the White House's Behavioral Science Team — a team of scientists charged with improving public policy using research insights about human behavior.
