Welcome to Cold Oatmeal, a production of Resch Strategies, concocted from the creative think tank that is 230 N. Washington Square, Suite 200. With topics ranging from the latest news headlines and future crisis communications case studies to what we had for dinner last night and what’s happening across Michigan and the nation.
We know what you’re thinking, though. The name. What’s cold oatmeal have to do with a PR podcast? It’s explained in our pilot episode, but it’s pretty simple. Like the popular breakfast of one our colleagues, it’s “good for us, it’s fun, it’s got some funny elements to it and it was one of the first things that really got us all talking as an office.”
Get to know the people behind the voices you’ll hear from on our website and feel free to drop us a line with any comments, questions or suggestions.
Road trippin’ it! Joe bought a plastic tub, and the team hit the road to visit Michigan’s oldest restaurant.
Today, we tackle a topic ignored by the masses for just too long… the weather. That’s right. It’s time we shine the light of day on this issue that no one ever wants to talk about.
Ahmad Bajjey joins us to bring some serious weather knowledge to the podcast. Ahmad is an award-winning meteorologist with NBC25 in Flint, and he’s awesome.
Deb Hart is an icon… a fixture on Lansing drive-time radio since she got into the business at the age 19.
Last month, she walked away from the radio studio for the yoga studio and the next chapter in her life. Today, she’s our guest on the Cold Oatmeal podcast.
The Resch Strategies team is back, and we welcome in Kelsey Snyder, the youngest daughter of former governor, Rick Snyder. Kelsey traversed her high school and college years with her dad running Michigan, and we talk with her about that.
Also, a surprise guest, a new segment, and a little announcement.
What do Marla Maples, Tom Arnold, and a Ph.D.-holding political scientist all have in common? You are about to find out.
Well, we set out to stage a Burger King/Jimmy Johns intervention for our good friend, Nick, but ended up having a fascinating conversation with Chris Johnson instead.
Chris lives here in Lansing and is an international speaker, an adviser, health and fitness expert and Founder and CEO of On Target Living.
