Boom Town (1889) w/ Sam Anderson

This Day in Esoteric Political History

It’s April 22nd. This day in 1889, tens of thousands of people gathered in the middle of “unassigned territory” to wait for the signal at high noon — at which point they rushed to claim their free land in what would, overnight, become Oklahoma City. Jody, NIki, and Kellie are joined by Sam Anderson of the New York Times Magazine to talk about the Oklahoma land rush, the chaos of those first few days, and how the forming of OKC represents modern America. Sam’s book about Oklahoma City is called “Boom Town.” Find a transcript of this episode at: https://tinyurl.com/esoterichistory This Day In Esoteric Political History is a proud member of Radiotopia from PRX.

Seizing opportunity during COVID, with Sam Anderson

The Introspective Podcast

In today's episode, I bring to you serial entrepreneur Sam Anderson to uncover how he has seized the opportunity during COVID. This is a very different type of interview than I've had on introspective. I've never interviewed anybody I've known for decades. His name is Sam Anderson, and Sam and I went to college together. But what's different about Sam and his story.We talk about:His Business Success JourneyBecoming a speaker at universities about business and entrepreneurship.Becoming a serial entrepreneur.Thriving and getting success even during COVID timesFollowing a 10 year career in the mental health field. Sam always knew he wanted to be an entrepreneur. When he saw that his position with the company would soon be ending rather than applying to other jobs, he decided to branch out independently. Since then, Sam has founded and co-founded several businesses. Companies are being Richmond bubble, soccer cycle, laundry service, Enso Media Firm, synapse and networking organization, and direct learning solutions. In that process. He has also written a book you can't afford me discussing the transition from employee to employer, as well as becoming a public speaker. Favorite Quote “The most valuable thing you can get from university is the relationships that you build.”Connect with Sam AndersonBring your story full circle: www.ensomediafirm.com Bring education to your front door:  https://www.directlearningsolution.comFollow Sam online on Facebook or Instagram:  @mrpreneur

Load Out Music Podcast Episode 10: Quaker City Night Hawks Frontman Sam Anderson

The Load Out Music Podcast

It's not uncommon to hear that rock is dead. But if you look, there are some great rock bands out there. Following in the footsteps of great Texas rock and roll acts like ZZ Top, Stevie Ray Vaughan and Ray Wylie Hubbard comes the Quaker City Night Hawks led by Sam Anderson. Since the band’s founding some 10 years ago, QCNH has been road warriors across the U.S. and in Europe, sharing their unique blend of rock and roll that’s been hailed by critics broadly. We speak with Sam about his journey, the band, his religious upbringing and the impact it's had on QCNH’s music, the band’s fascination with UFOs and more.
