Monitoring the situation on the banks. Missouri corona virus.

Life on the banks. We’re monitoring the situation.

If Jimmy John’s and Warby Parker offer their take, we will, too. If you don’t consume podcasts on the reg, you may not be familiar with our project over at The Scout Podcast. And if that’s the case, you didn’t catch 30-minutes worth of introverted Dad advice from Jordan and Jeff. In not quite a […]

Rounding third and heading home.

Something’s been eating at me lately. For years actually. It’s about memory. Memories of my childhood are blurred; nonexistent in many instances.

The Scout - Changing the way you see news.

Two words will change the way you see the news.

That’s big talk, I know. But they will at least change the way we start sending you news:   Charm & Hustle. Those are the words (and the ampersand) that will cause the shift. For years I’ve worked with this mindset. Convincing people I can do something, then figuring it out. Now this idea has […]
