What Should Bill Gates Do? With Kristina Kennedy

The Mike Dillard Podcast
Episode artwork
Read more

Is there such a thing as bad press, and what would you do if you were Bill Gates’ PR agent right now?

Those are two questions I asked our guest today, Kristina Kennedy, who’s the Co-Founder of KickStand Public Relations.

One of the most overlooked, and under-utilized resources that business owners can use to get attention and grow their businesses right now, is PR.

The media is an insatiable machine that is always hungry for newsworthy stories, and if you learn how to feed them, you can turn their networks into a massive advertising channel for you and your business.

But with that being said, PR has traditionally had a lot of weaknesses that have given modern marketers pause, like the inability to digitally track the results, and provide clear ROI data.

Well Kristina and her team at KickStand have fixed that problem.

They use modern data and tracking systems to help you increase the attention your stories get, and measure the return on your investment.

Ultimately, they are one of the few PR companies in the world who can answer the question you’re going to ask them…

Did this campaign cost us money, or did it make us money?

You may be ready for PR right now, or you may not, but either way, this is an interview and a company you’re going to want to keep in the back of your mind for future reference.

So what should Bill Gates do right now?

Please help me welcome Kristina Kennedy, and let’s find out…

Bill Gates’s vision for life beyond coronavirus

The Ezra Klein Show
Episode artwork
Read more

In 2015, I asked Bill Gates a simple question: What are you most afraid of? 

He replied by telling me about the death chart of the 20th century. There’s the spike for World War I. The spike for World War II. But between them sat a spike as big as World War II. That, he said, was the Spanish Flu, which killed an estimated 65 million people. Gates’s greatest fear was a flu like that, ripping through our hyperglobalized world. 

Gates saw this coming, and he tried to warn the world. But the virus came, and we weren’t ready. Now, we all live in his nightmare. 

Gates has reoriented his foundation and committed hundreds of millions of dollars to the world’s fight against coronavirus. He recently published a long essay detailing what we know and don’t know about the disease, and what we need to invent and deploy to safely return to normalcy.

I spoke with Gates to explore those questions, plus a few more. What does it feel like to be at the center of so many coronavirus conspiracy theories? What happens if we reopen too soon? Why are different cities seeing such different outcomes? Do rich and poor countries need different responses? What are the true chances of a vaccine in 18 months?

But above all, I wanted to ask him the inverse of the question I asked him in 2015: what does he hope for? What is his vision for life after coronavirus?
