THE TRUFFLE UNDERGROUND by Ryan Jacobs, read by Ari Fliakos
Behind the Mic with AudioFile Magazine
Ari Fliakos is one of those talented narrators who suits his tone, pace, and style to the subject. Here it is well matched to the tumultuous world of the truffle market. He narrates with the assured attitude of a documentary voice-over. His simple imitations of Italians and French people strike the right balance. This prized fungus, especially the highly sought after Italian white and French black, have inspired an underground of thieves, dog killers, and dishonest purveyors who regularly mislabel provenance to jack up prices. The listener enters a demimonde of intense competition and extraordinary profit. The audiobook also provides an outstanding history of the truffle's culinary uses.

“Good speeches, as a rule, generally push a single idea,” says the former speechwriter for the Obama Administration. When the Democratic National Committee needed a volunteer speechwriter in 2012, Ryan Jacobs ’19 was quick to put up his hand. The gig soon turned into a full-time job as a speechwriter within the Obama Administration. “I was an incredibly minor, minor, minor character in this administration,” Jacobs says. “If the Obama Administration was a movie, I’d be like extra No. 1,846. But I was there. And it’s a privilege to be there. You sort of feel like you’re in the middle of something big.” On this episode of Columbia Bizcast, Jacobs talks about how his career in speechwriting started with emulating a character from TV drama The West Wing and led to traveling around the country as chief speechwriter for former President Obama’s secretary of transportation. Jacobs also explains why he wanted to learn “the language of business” from Columbia Business School. Now working toward his Executive MBA degree as a cross-country commuter based in Seattle, Jacobs is a senior speechwriter for the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. “Good speeches, as a rule, generally push a single idea,” says Jacobs. “Bad speeches, as a rule, are like kitchen-sink speeches. Speeches that try to placate everybody. By saying everything, they say nothing.”
In this week’s episode I sit down with Ryan Jacobs. Ryan Jacobs is a performer, director, teacher, and is the Artistic Director of Suitcase Theatre. In our conversation today we discuss the types of theatre opportunities there are for people in smaller towns, his theatre training in Miami, as well as his experiences working at the French Woods Festival in New York State. We also discuss how Ryan got involved working with Suitcase Theatre, his work as a writer and director, as well as where he see theatre in Canada headed in the future.
