Conversation with Jesse Jackson of "Set Lusting Bruce: A Bruce Springsteen Podcast"
Bee Gees (And Me)
My guest this week is Jesse Jackson, host of “Set Lusting Bruce: A Bruce Springsteen Podcast.” He and I are kindred spirits. Much like I am a huge fan of the Bee Gees, Jesse is a huge fan of Bruce Springsteen. So it is so super easy to talk with Jesse because we have that same passion about a musical performer, the same dysfunctional brain that makes us obsessed to the point where we have huge collections and create podcasts because we love talking about it. I was a guest on his podcast, Set Lusting Bruce, a few months ago. Even though I wasn't necessarily a Springsteen fan, Jesse likes talking to guests who are super fans of other groups too. We ended up talking for over two hours about the Bee Gees and Bruce and all sorts of things. It was great. There’s links to these episodes on BeeGeesAndMe.com if you’re interested, we share some great stories. ANYWAY, when I was a guest on his show, it was before the HBO Documentary came out, and it was before Barry’s Greenfields country album came out. So we decided that we would exchange songs with each other, I gave him deeper cut Bee Gees songs, he gave me deeper cut Bruce songs, and then he would come be a guest on MY show and we could catch up and talk more music. That conversation is coming up in a little bit, I think you’ll really enjoy it. But first, this exchanging music with Jesse reminded me of a time in my life when I used to exchange music with my friends on a regular basis. This was about 10-15 years ago, damn where does the time go? Anyway, I was at a point in my life where I felt like I needed to expand my musical horizons. I wasn’t listening to much music besides the Gibbs, so I thought my friends could help me discover new music (and at the same time I thought it would be a good way to get them to listen to the Bee Gees.) So each month we’d pick a theme and make CD mixes for each other. Someone would host at their apartment, and we’d all bring food and booze over for a big dinner. And we’d eat and drink while listening to music and telling stories about the songs we chose. At the end of the night we’d all get several discs full of new music, and it was also some awesome quality time with friends too. We called ourselves the Disc Poets Society. We met for about a year before life gets in the way as it does, but I’ll always remember those as one of the coolest things I was a part of. Fast forward to today, and here I am finding myself trading music again. Before meeting Jesse, I hadn’t really listened to Bruce Springsteen all that much. But through him I discovered some amazing songs that have become part of my regular music rotation. And I’m happy to report that I introduced to him a few Bee Gees songs that he would have never heard before too. We didn’t burn CDs or have dinners, even if a pandemic wasn’t keeping us from being able to assemble, we live hundreds of miles away from each other. But technology has allowed us to create playlists and stream music so we could share with each other. Next week, exclusively on Spotify, I will be sharing a Listening Party episode of Bee Gees And Me where Jesse and I talk about and listen to these Bruce and Gibb songs. And it carries on the spirit of me and my friends with the Disc Poets Society. I hope you watch for it and listen to it, it was incredible to create.

It’s always nice when our guest for the Mads Singers Management Podcast is familiar with hosting a podcast. In this episode, I’m chatting with Jesse Jackson (no, not that Jesse Jackson) about best practices when it comes to managing and communicating with teams. Jesse has spent most of his career in the call-center business, working in various divisions, be it sales, customer service, and tech support. He has managed teams from 25-50 people. When he’s not with his family he’s recording podcasts about Bruce Springsteen and Dr. Who. Jesse moved to a new company last year and had dozens of new team members to meet. He met all of them in two weeks, asking some short simple questions: What do you like about working here? What do you not like? What can I do for you? What’s a song you have to have on a road trip? Jesse’s fellow managers were stunned that Jesse had managed to meet with everyone so quickly, but Jesse couldn’t understand why this wasn’t a basic expectation: how could he be expected to understand his team if he couldn’t take a few minutes to meet with them? He created a Spotify playlist using everyone’s songs and shared it, as well as the two most important pieces of feedback that kept coming up in his meetings: Everyone enjoyed the family atmosphere of the company, but They didn’t feel as much in the loop as they wanted to be I noted that not only is communication normally an issue between management and teams, but that some managers don’t have the self-awareness to realize that they are not communicating in the way that is best for all the members of the team, but in the way that the manager typically prefers. Jesse understood that instinctively and said that when he sends out communication he usually does it across multiple platforms, be it email, Loom, and messages on Teams/Slack so that everyone could get the info in the format he/she preferred.Jesse also noted how far telling team members WHY goes. He shared multiple occasions in which sharing the why behind his decision led to buy-in and adoption. That sort of sharing also gives employees the confidence to come to you with ideas for improvement. He gives those employees the advice that he earned by his own lessons: come to management with facts instead of feelings, and have the confidence in yourself to advocate for your ideas. Don’t just back down at the first “No.” Management has natural resistance built-in.I agreed, pointing out that whenever I’ve seen employees own an idea they work that much harder to get it implemented.It was a pleasure to chat with Jesse.

Join your host Hermene Hartman as she talks with David Masciotra , Author of the new book “I Am Somebody, Why Jesse Jackson Matters”. We are honored to also be joined by the legend himself, Reverend Jesse Jackson Sr. Today we discuss the life of Reverend Jackson and the impact his work has had on civil rights and the fight for equality for black people and others. David explains why Reverend Jackson is one of the most important civil rights figures of the 20th century. From his work with Dr. Martin Luther King, to his work to import the civil rights movement from the south to the northern states, to his many other pursuits that have lead to improved rights and equality for black people and other underrepresented groups in America. We talk about how Reverend Jackson’s work enhanced the influence and prevalence of the Democratic party and how his work, which David Masciotra calls “the sociology of equality”, was decades ahead of the party. David explains how Reverend Jackson transformed the demography and ideology of the Democratic party. Finally we talk to the legend himself. Reverend Jackson explains the influence he had when he ran for president and changed the democratic party forever. He talks about why he ran for president, in order to sew seeds of hope and inspiration for black people in America, to show them that black people had the power to influence real systemic change in this country. We talk about how Reverend Jackson's work has always involved two key factors. To call out injustices against black people and others, and also to work within the political system to change laws in order to create equality and inclusion for all people. Tune in to hear this important discussion with a living legend as we discuss all this and much more.
