Today’s guest has been a bit of a ghost int he GBH machine for more than a decade - since our founding really - and he’s someone I think about every time someone asks me how GBH got started - and as you’ll discover shortly, he had no idea. Greg Browne was the brewer at a brewpub in Chicago’s NW suburbs - a place called Mickey Finn’s. He was known for brewing a hefeweizen - a recipe he inherited from his predecessor when he took over as head brewer. More importantly, for me, he was the host of a weekly Beer School at The Map Room in Chicago - a midday gathering on Saturday’s where guests would enjoy some bread and cheese and learn about beers in a thematic way - and the themes were whatever happened to be on Greg’s mind that week. It’s an incredible memory for me - from a time when I’d only had a smattering of craft beer experiences to rely on - and I hardly considered myself a fan of beer in any particular way. It was just causal and sometimes interesting fun. Most of my bar experiencers a the time involved $1 off specials of Blue Moon and some Golden Tee. Not exactly sophisticated stuff - but it was kind of the Chicago way. Map Room - and Greg Browne’s beer school painted an entirely different picture however. And I’m forever indebted to that moment when he served me my first Saison Dupont. That’s the beer that inspired GBH - and Greg is the one who created that moment, unbeknownst to him. But that’s not the real reason we’re talking today - that’s a story we could have shared at any point in in past decade really. Today I’m talking to Greg because for the first time in a long time, I saw his name pop up as part of a new brewing project called Art History, and it recently started supplying two fantastic beers to Chicago’s Hopleaf Bar. As far as I know the sis the first time Hopleaf has ever had a house beer. The venerated tap list there is a target for anyone trying to make a name for themselves in Chicago’s beer scene. Brewers host parties just to celebrate getting on tao there for the first time if they’re lucky enough to make the list at all. So for Greg to have a new gig - and so quickly become a mainstay on that list as a pair of house beers - is an unprecedented achievement. And for this episode, I reached out to Michael Roper of Hopleaf for his perspective on all that. It was a sign for me that it was finally time to get Greg on the podcast, share this story with him, and hear so much more about his own. It takes us deep into Chicago’s craft brewing past - and paints pa picture of the future that I’m very excited about.

Anaerobic Soil Disinfestation with Amisha Poret-Peterson and Greg Browne
Growing the Valley
Before planting a new orchard, the soil is traditionally fumigated to reduce nematodes and the still not-yet-fully understood Prunus Replant Disease pathogen complex. Current fumigants are effective, but release volatile organic compounds (VOCs), which has resulted in township caps in some areas of the Central Valley. Anaerobic Soil Disinfestation (ASD) is being examined as a possible alternative, to soil fumigation, and it works by harnessing natural processes to reduce soil pathogens. Amisha Poret-Peterson and Greg Browne, two USDA-ARS research scientists share what they’ve learned on ASD’s effect on soil microbial communities and plant pathogens.Thank you to the Almond, Pistachio, Prune, and Walnut Boards of California for their kind donations.

Episode 34-- Elizabeth Sheedy and Greg Browne -- Risk and Ethical Culture
Aaron Beam Speaks Podcast
This episode features Elizabeth Sheedy, a risk management expert and Professor based in the Department of Applied Finance of Macquarie University. This episode is a chance to examine some of her research and what she introduces as her professor role to students. She looks at risk governance, culture and remuneration in financial institutions. Her current focus research interests are: risk culture, ethical culture/leadership, remuneration and experimental investigation of risk management behavior. Elizabeth uses a range of research methods to build understanding of behavior in financial services including surveys, experiments, interviews as well as the econometric methods traditionally used by finance scholars. Also joining in the discussion is Greg Browne, a business executive who has joined on previous podcasts with expertise in looking at the executive compensation and other topics of accountability.
Executive compensation can have controversy and a bit of smoke and mirrors, however the federal securities laws require clear, concise and understandable disclosure about compensation paid to CEOs, CFOs and certain other high-ranking executive officers of public companies. The financial payments and non-monetary benefits to high level management for work in a company can prove for interesting discussion. Greg Browne, a solid business executive with expertise in financial compensation -- and other topics, as he has joined the podcast in a previous epsiode -- joins this episode to cover a topic that really isn’t new, but it certainly spans multiple industries and creates dialogue that raises eyebrows. Tune in.
The discussion of ethics centers on the topic of companies adopting and presenting financial information aside from the US GAAP (Generally Accepted Accounting Principles) method of accounting and adopting non-GAAP measures. This episode features a long term friend who has much expertise in the finance world. Greg Browne is a renowned business executive and is a leading speaker on the subject of uniform rules and how they apply in financial reports.We dive in and talk about examples and speculate what companies may attempt in the coming days in their accounting methods. Over the past 15 years companies have been using non-GAAP measures in a variety of ways to report and so it warrants discussion. You’ll hear some of the uses ranging from research analysts to investment and commercial banks to basically everyone in the financial sector. Tune in.
