Episode 158 The Irregular Jelly Belly
FROM:  JellyBelly.com *** Did you ever wonder what happens to the Jelly Belly jelly beans that are a little less than perfect or the ones that somehow escaped the Jelly Belly logo stamper? Well, those are our beloved Belly Flops! For whatever reason, the jelly beans in these bags didn’t quite make it through production as they should have. Because of this, they’re all a little bit strange and special in their own unique ways. Jelly Belly Belly Flops are no less flavorful, or lovable, than regular Jelly Belly jelly beans; they just come in wild shapes and sizes. You may find one that's round, one that's square, or you may even find a bunch stuck together. On very rare occasions, a flavor may not match a color. A red Belly Flop might taste like Blueberry, or a white one might taste like Chocolate Pudding. Crazy! These bulk bags of Jelly Belly Belly Flops aren’t just great deals, they’re a lot of fun. They’re also perfect for the adventurous candy-lover who doesn’t mind getting a treat that’s a little bit different or unexpected. *** Yup, I discovered Belly Flops at the 99 cent store today!   Make sure to subscribe and leave a review.

Episode 156 The Human Common Denominator
The Human Common Denominator Are you insulted when someone calls you a common denominator? I pulled some comments from a chat that asked that question.  The comments are interesting as to what makes a human common denominator.  It's the same as a narcissist - it's always someone else's fault. wendicooper.com wendicooper@mac.com @realwendicooper Twitter @wendicreates IG Music by Tom Orsi Wendicooper.com

Episode 155 This IS Normal. Get Used To It
Posting real-time illness is just weird.   As more and more people get the virus, just like the flu, doesn't it become normal to get it, and abnormal to post while you are sick? The symptoms are the same as the flu; strep throat; pneumonia; bronchitis, whatever.  My point is that don't people die of complications if unvaccinated from the flu, et al. So what is the real difference at this point?  What weird society are we creating and living in where we have the need to share too much?   The vaccinated get IT but don't get really sick.  The unvaccinated don't get IT and get really sick.  Just like the flu..... CoVid vaccines are here to stay.  It's normal. Get used to it.  WendiCooper@mac.com www.CSpotRun.com @realwendicooper (Twitter) @wendicreates (IG) @wendiC (ClubHouse) Theme Music:  Tom Orsi Music: Cat-Walk Mix.it C Spot Run Productions - all rights reserved.

Episode 154 Dumb & Dumber Are Alive
Dumber and Dumber a movie from 1994, starring Jim Carey and Jeff Daniels as Dumb and Dumber was a fun, silly, comedy.   Two guys that weren't very smart took off together on a road trip and took the audience along with them.  It was not real life.  In fact, it was far from it.   Today with social media and live social audio platforms so accessible, and without any best practices or rules in place,  it appears the road trip of Dumb and Dumber is in full swine, especially on Club House I'm not sure if this is Dumb or if it is Dumber in this episode, but he is a person of influence and a public figure.  It's also surprising how many people put this man on a pedestal.  WendiCooper@mac.com www.WendiCooper.com Music by Tom Orsi Produced:  C Spot Run Productions All rights reserved.

Episode 153 What Does the World Really Think?
 What Does the Global Community think about the US and the Insurrection? Today I was looking for a tidbit of "news" for this episode on the anniversary of the insurrection at the Capital.   I was on Clubhouse and found a room discussing what the rest of the world thinks about the insurrection.  It was fascinating to hear all of the opinions from other countries.   A colleague from 20 years ago pop up - it was great to hear Ben's voice and super cool to be connected in a group of 100's of people from around the world sharing points of view.   Ben is living in West Africa.  So, I pushed the record button and captured some great stuff - one man's POV. Thank you, Ben Mendelson Here are some people to follow on Clubhouse.  @docdanmd, @benmendelson @myglobalmuse, @davidinvenice @wendic   Wendicooper@mac.com Wendicooper.com C Spot Run Productions Cspotrun.com Theme Music by:  Tom Orsi Background:  Youtube Music

Episode 152 Not So Sexy in the City
Is it ageist to write scripts that stereotype people over 50? ...And Just Like That, HBO MAX, the new 10 episodes of Sex in the City totally took the sex out of the city. Darren Star and Michael Patrick King you had a chance to make 50+ sexy and vibrant, and healthy.  Like in the real world. They reinvent themselves, explore new adventures and business because they are savvy superhumans living to 100 - unstoppable - still sexy in the city.   But no. You focus on hearing aids, brittle bones, getting fingered, not kissed for a lesbian experience, heart attacks on a Peloton, and life's goals as "getting back in heels".    You took the sex out of the city with ageist comments and storylines, why not put the fucking Sexy in the City at 50?. Or is it about the costumes? Hmm, because nothing else is working. Correction:  There are 5 episodes on HBOMax, not 4.

Episode 151 It Really Is "All About Me" in Season 3
In 1998 I met Phillip Keel through a friend from the Foundation Room at the House of Blues in Hollywood, CA 1997.  She was dating him, we were all in our 30's.  Phillip was the author of "All About Me" a hybrid journal that contained questions, and blank pages to fill. I remember him telling me that it was a way to leave your story behind for others to find in years to come.  (It was 1997). Of course, we all lost contact over the years.  I knew Phillip lived in Zurich when not in L.A. and that his family had been in book publishing for many, many years in Switzerland.   It is no wonder that he grew a simple idea into the business of beautifully crafted journals.  I truly had no idea until he popped into my head doing this recording. This episode isn't about Phillip Keel, but it is about how it took me 24 years to embrace that it is  "All About Me", and it's important to leave a legacy that can be cherished, in a physical time and space. I even changed my artwork!   Contact me:  wendicooper@mac.com Website:  www.wendicooper.com Twitter: @realwendicooper IG: @wendicreates Produced by: C Spot Run Productions Music by: Mix.it "Sun and Daughter"

Episode 148 What is the Creator Economy Anyway?
The Creator Economy - this term bugs me.   Is it really an economy if the Creator isn't making money and is putting in all the work?  Why is our content subject to artificial intelligence algorithms that can sink you on the whim of a line of code?  What came first the Creator or the Startup - that needs the Creator to exist?  I've been creating for 27 years, some for passion and most for my profession.  Creating content isn't something one wakes up to do..or do they? If this is a Creator Economy then who is really making the money? Enjoy this short plea for Creator to embrace their power and preserve their passion by controlling their content completely.   http://wendicooper.com WendiCooper@mac.com C Spot Run Productions  Theme Music:  Orsi Digital Post - Tom Orsi Music:  No. 6  In My Dreams by Esther Abrams Youtube Music Track.

Episode 147 A Sonic Childhood Memory
"Love and Marriage, Love and Marriage Go Together Like a Horse and Carriage..."  this song was the theme to the 80s sit-com Married with Children making in familiar to many generations.   It is the song that I hear when I think of my youth, my very young youth, like baby youth.  That's going way back.   Throughout my life that song has always sprung a connection to my mother, I hear her voice singing it, even though I haven't heard her voice for 16 years. Is this my sonic childhood memory. @Wendicooper on Clubhouse @WendiCooperShow on Greenroom Music: Fair Use

Episode 146 BETA Testing Is ClubHouse's Best Friend, Again
So much money is made in credit card processing that Clubhouse spoke much too soon when they swore it was all about the creator.   Townhall is every Sunday on Clubhouse at 9AM PST.  The founders review this and that and the other thing.  Very curated.  But, this Sunday they announced that there will soon be, in the next few months, giving the ability to tip and send payments to creators in app and through Strip globally.  And, that they would be taking a percentage of that revenue. No shit Sherlock.  The statement by the founders that they would not be taking a percentage I found extremely odd and also against their fiduciary responsibility to their share holders as it would make perfect sense to take a "gateway" type fee, resulting in a self sustaining revenue model.  It appears the founders realized they had misspoken.   That's what I talk about in this episode.

Episode 145 Apple Podcast Wants You to Pay Me
MAKE SURE TO SUBSCRIBE :)  How often do you hear hosts say "make sure to "subscribe to my podcast"....what does that mean to you?  And why am I talking about it?  More than likely it means that they want you to "follow" the podcast and by subscribing to an Apple Podcast it won't cost you a penny, but now it may just cost you whatever...the host wants to charge. Why is podcasting becoming a pay to listen medium?  I don't have the answer to that, but I do have an opinion on how to use "subscribe" and why it's about time...kind of.  So how does that work?  Well, here is the email that I received from Apple - letting me know how excited they are!    Follow me on @wendicooper - ClubHouse email:  WendiCooper@mac.com  Music by:  Tom Orsi Make sure to subscribe.  LOL

Episode 141 It's Been A Minute - Who Said It First?
It's been a minute is a phrase used to express the opposite of what it sounds like it means.  Which can be extremely confusing yet fun at the same time.  Like "cool" or "bitch'n". When is it appropriate to use it and when not?   Have you ever wondered, who said it first?  Does it translate well?   What does "it's been a minute" sound like to others?   It's a fun episode of not so thought provoking banter, but hey, it was one of those nights, and it's really has been a minute.

Episode 139 Clubhouse Opens Up The Pearly Gates
March 7, 2021 Clubhouse Open Ups the Pearly Gates  This week Clubhouse opened "club" creation to everyone.  In fact, not only did one get to create one club, but 2.   I don't know about you but when there are too many choices the first thing I do as a consumer is run the other way. By opening up the Club creation to everyone it diluted the importance of the "early adopters" who have a huge following, pretty much by default and had dominated the "club" scene for a long time - giving grown-ups follower fatigue.   Newcomers began feeling the unfair advantage, in my eyes, and the "follower" fatigue happened from some influential people outside of the walls of clubhouse and complaints started to come in.   In my opinion, as Clubhouse grew after opening up in late December 2020, other more pressing matters like privacy, scams, grifters, trolls, IP protection, monetization, customer service, HR, came into play - so they had to stop the slow clog in the pipeline which was caused by poor planning and management.  After all, one guy to approve clubs, who is he to approve the club?  That's weird, no?  I don't know.  I am now less apt to use Clubhouse because it's a hassle to find what I want. It gives me anxiety just creating this episode about it.  :).  On March 7, 2021  "Join My Club" requests.   We'll see what happens. www.wendicooper.com www.cspotrun.com CH @wendicooper IG:  @wendicreates  CH Club:  Sixty Something  I did use a short clip of Usher's Let's Make Love in the Club.

Episoded 138 Sarah Silverman Apologizes to Paris Hilton
Sarah Silverman has a podcast IGTV, which is where I came across her very public plea to be forgiven for being a jerk to Paris Hilton 14 years ago at the 2007 MTV Awards. You see, Paris Hilton has a podcast too and she called-out Sarah Silverman by saying that what she did to Paris in 2007 would never be allowed today.  It's culturally unacceptable. Sarah claims she sent an apology the next day and never knew that Paris didn't get it until now.   After all, why would Pari care about a note from the comedian that insulted her - at the height of her fame? Sarah claims that she has found Jesus, and is a reborn comedian that realizes she hurt people and how unacceptable that type of behavior is, then and now. @Sarahkatesilverman Wendicooper@mac.com www.cspotrun.com Clubhouse:  @wendicooper

I talk to Bud, my good friend who knows me better than anyone, about my disappointment in those that I really did admire, until Clubhouse and experienced their egoist as they came face to face with Zero Followers and the fact that their shit did stink after all.

Episode 134 The Club House App Blew Up Today
It only too 12 days for my prediction from Episode 132 on January 18th, to come true.  Slime Time Big Time on Club House. I remember once someone saying to me, "You have the podium use it wisely."   Some of the best advice I've gotten in my career and it has always stood the test of time, until Club House. It was like a huge slime bomb fell on the new social media love child sent to us from Silicon Valley to make us all feel inclusive and heard.  It's a great concept, and can work in moderation, but opening it up around the world...well there are some problems, like BEST PRACTICES.  Based on the honor system it appears manipulation of the audience, scams, and  fraud are running wild, but most of all people are getting hurt and feeling mentally ruined.  I also predicted this.  (Episode 131 Mother of All FOMO)  The problem is that all of those amazing humans on Club House think they can come together and fix it - if they can, then that's the answer to the world's problems. In my opinion that's what broken.  Club House has given the podium away to everyone which dilute responsibility.  @wendicooper - come talk with me on Club House before it's shut down, as that is the only solution I see to fixing the slimey mess.

Episode 133 Even Moderators Need to Be Moderated
EVEN MODERATORS NEED MODERATION on CLUBHOUSE Updated February 2, 2022 Nothing has changed. The problem continues. Clubhouse allows everyone to moderate rooms, or tracks, under any topic you like.  It's like VC heaven all in one stop.  Want to make a movie, no problem. Be a Voice actor, easy peasy. Win in real estate? Be on the MOD SQUAD? Get advice from global experts in tech, medicine, and science.....? Where do the expert Moderators find the time, day after day, for hours in a day and often in GMT zone, to give free advice?  My nose puckers... IRL a Moderator is the tradeshow keynote Host and may also Moderate an expert panel discussion and deliver talking points, not an expert opinion.   The Showrunner on TV like GMA, a live news show, oversees the entire show and is responsible for its success that includes many experts in their own field, cast, crew, wrters, producers, post, deliverables, backoffice, etc. As a Moderator on Clubhouse  You must do all of the above, and that takes talent, expertise, humility, curiosity, and most of all, time.  Make sure to subscribe and leave a review.

After the movie Social Dilemma one would think we would be more conscious about the amount of time spent on social media.  But it appears it's only getting worse with ClubHouse. After spending 3 days on ClubHouse, I felt the adrenalin racing through my body and I felt like I was missing something and needed to constantly be involved, or listening, or curious, or I would miss...Yikes...I can't even explain the FOMO I was experiencing. Today I realized that ClubHouse is a combination of Linkedin, HSN and Twitter.   Linkedin for the professional networking and sharing of wisdom.  HSN live TV selling a product in a limited amount of time by two hosts speaking to an audience of millions with limited time. Twitter because it's topical and fast moving. If you think you have FOMO now, well hold on to your hat, ClubHouse has been known to give people hang-overs!  ClubHouse @wendicooper WendiCooper.com WendiCooper@mac.com
