Ep. 51: On Collecting Sneakers and How to Do More Good Better

This week's episode of The Chauncey DeVega Show features two firsts. David Friendly is the director and producer of the new documentary on sneaker culture known as "Sneakerheadz". David is the first Best Motion Picture of the Year Oscar-nominated guest--for his work on the great movie Little Miss Sunshine--to sit down at the virtual bar and salon known as The Chauncey DeVega Show. David Friendly is also the first person to spend some time chatting with Chauncey DeVega who has won a BAFTA for Best Film. Steve Scheier is the author of the new book Do More Good. Better. He is the first organizational consultant with expert and practical advice on "diversity", "leadership", and "the workplace" to be a conversation partner on The Chauncey DeVega Show. This is a good and informative episode. Chauncey and David talk about being a "closer" in the film business, the art and politics of sneaker culture, how making a documentary is different from working in other genres, and how sneaker culture is a type of social history. In the next segment, Chauncey and Steve talk about a wide range of topics. How does a person navigate the corporate and not for profit worlds? How do questions of leadership, identity, and decision-making interact and complicate one another? Steve and Chauncey also explore such topics as privilege, consulting, communication styles, and remaining positive and productive in the face of the challenging realities of the contemporary workplace where one may be afraid of truth-telling? What about finding a mentor? Surviving a toxic work environment? During this episode of The Chauncey Devega Show, Chauncey also works through his mental confusion as caused by the Chicago heat, reflects on being slurred by a drunk woman at the local tap, is upset about ign't "Serial", talks about Donald Trump and pro wrestling, and shares the biological science that drives his addiction to high fructose corn syrup.
