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.
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.
We are wrapping up 2018 with a bow made of whiskers, self-deprecation and insights from 8 years working with Rick Snyder and for the people of Michigan.
It’s an exit interview with Michigan’s out-going Lt. Governor, Brian Calley.
Chris Harkins, Lame Duck, and the Golden Turkey winners. It’s either a really bad band, or the poultry episode of the Cold Oatmeal podcast.
Hey, it’s the Friendsgiving episode of the Cold Oatmeal podcast.
Well, not really. Because Friendsgiving isn’t a real thing. It’s a fake thing. But we are having some friends over today to talk about politics and to grade the job performances of others. So, if Friendsgiving was a real thing, this might be close.
The election is over. The campaigning is done. The ads are gone.
We talked about it here and wanted to bring a guest into the Cold Oatmeal studios to help us wrap it all up. So, we invited a stand up comedian, of course. Dwayne Gill, the funny cop, is our guest today, and we don’t spend a minute talking about politics.
