Oct. 26: Where they come up with an idea, Simon does a funny and Beate falls for it.

Beate

Guys, I just thought of something. Random idea. You know those conversation-y blogposts that for instance FiveThirtyEight do? It’s kinda almost like a written podcast. We should do those! Like a weekly lobster chat around whatever topic, remove all the worst offensive stuff and then publish it as a regular blog post. Yay!

😁

Like this:

Simon

Is that the new podcast? A written conversation?

Simon

That’s a really good idea.

Beate

Yes. Let’s get it done, starting Sunday night

💪🏼💪🏼

Simon

YESSSSSSSSSS

John

Awesome

Simon

Im excited about it

Beate

How’s your Sunday afternoon /evenings John Lepp, Jen Love ? It’ll obviously be earlier in the day for you two..

John

That day we’ll actually be in San Diego, that’s the night before the Storytelling Conference. Sooo that’s three hours in the other direction.

Beate

Further away from us time wise? Sounds like that might be a good time then?

Jen

Sundays are not going to be ideal for me this weekend or going forward. There will always be family and hockey and and and

Jen

But IN for the idea

Beate

Ok, we’ll find another day. What would work best for you two? It’s always going to be in a somewhat inconvenient time if it’s going to be possible at all unfortunately..

I’m thinking like 30 minutes

Simon

Lets start every episode with a fact about lobsters

Beate

Yesssss

John

LOL

Beate

Rotating responsibility for bringing a lobster fact

Jen

If we make it consistent every week there would be lots of options… I would say we pick a day where it’s morning here and afternoon there…?

John

i can make time most days… so im retty easy

Jen

Random suggestion: Tuesdays!

Beate

Tuesdays

👍🏼

Simon

Tuesdays are literally my best days

Beate

Can the Canadians do like 11-12? get me out of my meetings and client days first

Jen

this works for me

John

i could wrangle 1130-12 on a regulasr basis – i work out 10-11 on tuesdays…

Beate

Peeeerfect! I’ll send out a meetinf planner.

Jen

if we want to start this week it can’t be 8AM PST because I’ll be doing a keynote for 1000 people and losing my shit

John

1000?

Jen

Yep, apparently it’s 1000 people or so for the plenaries

Beate

That is SO GOOD! You’ll smash it out of the park and everyone will love you 😍

Jen

thanks sweet bea

John

Holy shit

Jen

maybe Steven is fucking with me but that’s what he said

John

they must have really grown it… it used to be a 300-400 person confernece

lol

Simon

1000, that’s like M in Latin

Jen

(exceeeeept that the 19th and 26th of November, both Tuesdays, I know John and Simon are both booked. And the 12th of November I’m on a flight to Alaska)

ok maybe not simon on the 26th but that’s congress

Simon

3 of us can cover for 1

Jen

Fair enough

Simon

Shake up the dynamic

Shake it like a protein shake

Should me know how to write the number one in Latin?

Beate

I

Simon

Sorry

Should *I* know

John

lobster FACT:

Lobsters are thought to never stop growing and if they live long enough, they can reach up to 1m long!

🧐

Simon

That fact doesnt make any sense

John

of course it does

they can get fucking big if i dont eat them first

Simon

If they lived long enough they’d be up to infinity M long

Beate

Simon, it’s “I”

John

🧐

Simon

I KNOW! WAS A TYPO! But should I know how to write the number one in Latin?

Beate

A feast for your eyes: A snack eating a snack. Seth says hi

Seth Piper eating fruit

Simon

Babeception

Jen

#swoon

John

lol

Beate

is this latin thing a skit

Simon

Yes

John

my whole life seems like one big improv show

*calendar invite pinging in*

Simon

SLACK?!

Jen

FUCK SLACK

Beate

Hahahahaha

Well it’s going to have to be in some kind of format where it’s easy to get it off the platform and onto a blog platform

John

Sigh

Beate

This conversation though: Lobster chat preview.

I’m publishing it

Jen

oh my goddess between recording the video for fundraising everywhere and trying to understand what the fuck is with this podcast/written blog and having to look over the top of my glasses to see any of this I feel like I am 1000 years old and i’m going to have a glass of sherry and lie down on a fainting couch

Simon

Should someone say something about fundraising?

Did this chat make you laugh? Or think? Find us annoying? You should totally share that with your friends.
