SPOS #542 - Finding What Fascinates With Julie Klam

Welcome to episode #542 of Six Pixels Of Separation - The Mirum Podcast. Our team at Mirum has launched a interesting program for InterContinental Hotels & Resorts. It's a series that takes places across multiple InterContinental properties to tell stories that will get consumers excited about what travel brings into their lives (beyond visiting a different city or country). The first part of this program has been focused on the theme of "fascination." With that, our team connected with famed bestselling author, Julie Klam, at the InterContinental New York Barclay's Gin Parlour for a conversation about the power of fascination. Truthfully, I had nothing to do with this project, but jumped at the opportunity to have Julie on this show. I've been a fan of her work for a long time. Julie Klam interned at Late Night with David Letterman and went on to write for the likes of Rolling Stone, Harper's Bazaar, and The New York Times Magazine. She also worked on the VH1 television show Pop-Up Video, where she earned an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Special Class Writing. She's the author of many narrative non-fiction books like Friendkeeping, Love At First Bark, You Had Me At Woof and Please Excuse My Daughter. Her next book, The Stars In Our Eyes, will look at celebrities, memes and what makes us all so enraptured by those who have influence. So what makes us fascinated? Do we all have the same ability to capture attention like celebrities? Where do great stories come from? Enjoy the conversation...

SPOS #541 - Confessions Of A Recovering Advertising Professional With Alex Bogusky

Welcome to episode #541 of Six Pixels Of Separation - The Mirum Podcast. You can't turn down the chance to have a chat with legendary advertising professional, Alex Bogusky. Yes, he was on the cover of Fast Company magazine. Yes, he's been called the Steve Jobs of advertising. Alex joined famed ad agency, Crispin and Porter, in 1989. In just five years, the agency was renamed Crispin Porter + Bogusky and grew to more than 1000 employees with billings over one billion dollars. Under Alex's leadership, the agency became the most awarded advertising agency in the world. They are the only agency to have won the Cannes Advertising Grand Prix in all five catagories. Adweek named him "Creative Director of the Decade" in 2010. That's when he retired from advertising to focus on consumer advocacy, angel investing and the venture capital space. Based on Boulder, Colorado, Alex is involved in many new businesses and ventures. So, does he miss our world? Enjoy the conversation...

SPOS #540 - Bring Magic To Your Business With Magician Jay Sankey

Welcome to episode #540 of Six Pixels Of Separation - The Mirum Podcast. I have been blown away by Jay Sankey. He's a magician who has managed to do some pretty amazing and impossible things. I'm not just talking about the 700-plus illusions he has invented over his incredible career. I'm not just talking about the fact that David Copperfield, Criss Angel and David Blaine have performed his illusions. He knows so much about business, marketing and storytelling that this could be one of the important things any business professional might listen to this year. (and that's not hyperbole) With close to 200,000 subscribers to his Sankey Magic YouTube channel, Jay has broken down the wall between the audience and the mystic of magic. He doesn't just perform on YouTube, he shows everyone how the magic is done. It's brilliant. He's also the founder of Inside Deception - the world's number one training site for magic, mentalism, performance and more. Within this show, you learn the power of telling a story, persuasion, creating tension, presentation skills, comedy, diversion tactics and more. It's simply... amazing. If you're still not sold, you must see his video of how he outsmarted Penn and Teller for their TV show, Fool Us. Enjoy the conversation...

Welcome to episode #539 of Six Pixels Of Separation - The Mirum Podcast. I love this guy. What more can I say? Everything he puts out into the world, I feel like I want to connect with more.

He puts together an amazing summer camp experience for adults (Camp Good Life Project) and just published an incredibly powerful book, How To Live A Good Life. Prior to this book, Jonathan Fields, also wrote the book, Uncertainty, and has published a lot of content around doing great work by being good people. Like I said, there's nothing not to like about his thinking. Over the years, Jonathan has become a true friend and is, usually, my first port of call when I am feeling challenged, stressed or unfocused. He is Sage-like in his wisdom. Enjoy the conversation...
