[S4E1] A Change Is Gonna Come
Yep, absolutely. And the remote work, you know, at the beginning of the pandemic, it was just let everybody worked from home. Fine, right? The big focus on that really, was IT and management practices. Can they actually log in from home? And then how do managers keep that connection with people? And how do we keep the culture alive? That was the focus at the beginning. Probably because everybody thought, sooner or later, they're just gonna come back to the office. Well, you know, it's later and yes, people are returning to the office. But there's also a fundamental shift now. A lot of people prefer working from home. And many companies are pivoting to offering that as a permanent benefit, as a way to attract and retain employees. You're seeing now I think I was just reading about Apple and other organizations that are struggling to get people back into the office.

And I think what's beautiful about the Airbnb example is that it fits in line with not only their corporate culture, but with their outward marketing culture. And so they are basically saying, Look, you shouldn't tie yourself down to one location, go be go experience the world. And if they're now their corporate culture now says, look, go experience the world still work with us, we want you here we value you. We're just going to be changing things a little bit. Obviously, they're going to be some people who get off the bus. And they're going to be more people who look at it and go, Hey, that's a corporate culture, I can align around. And I want to be on that bus. I think well, one other thing that I would love to get your feedback on is pay transparency when it comes to this, that now that all of these structures and all these policies are now coming into the fore? How does that change a corporate culture where they may have held a lot of those things back as kind of company secrets and not publishing structures and market pricing. Now, with this kind of move, how does it change their ability to communicate their competition policies and practices?
"The musicians didn't quite give in to the idea of the filming process," Pierce says. "They cherished every opportunity to get through a song. I remember one time, John [Boutté] refused to cut. And because he refused to cut, because he's so in the pocket, they didn't cut. They kept rolling. And it was one of the most magical moments on Treme because you saw this performance of John Boutté singing 'It's been a long, long time coming, but I know a change a gonna come,' and it's now documented on film that we'll have for all time. That's one of the great things about Treme: capturing moments that would have otherwise been lost. Capturing moments that happen in the clubs and great performances that people only hear about, now they get to see."

Flight Attendant: All right, gentlemen our flight today from Shanghai to Moffett Field in Mountain View will be just over 11 hours, so if you'll just...Jack: Oh, actually, I was headed up to Jackson Hole to see the wife and kids. I was gonna charter up tomorrow, but maybe you could ask the boys just to drop me off on the way? Save me the trouble? Flight Attendant: Of course. Gavin: Well, and I mean, it's really not a big deal, but since we are headed east, I think Jackson is further. Maybe we'll head to Moffett first, then have the guys hop you onto Jackson, okay? Jack: Well, actually, on flights like this, the boys like to go over the Pole, so that, technically, is a little more north to south, and Jackson is quite a bit further north. So I think, maybe, just go to Jackson first, then head on off to Moffett. That sound good?Flight Attendant: Of course.Jack: Great. I'm gonna get a pillow. Mr. Bighetti: Good night, Brown Bear. Bighead: Love you, Papa Bear.(Jared is doing Richard's nails)Richard: Where did you learn how to do this anyway?Jared: Oh ah... when I was on the street it was a means of survival.Gilfoyle: I'm quite certain I've never said this before. I agree with Dinesh. Russ: Richard. I can tell, and as much as you want to be, you're not. It's like this. You're trying to date a woman, - but deep down in your heart you know you're gay. Deep in your soul, you know you would rather be plowing a dude! Richard: I don't... I do... Okay, what dude? Russ: It could be any dude, as long as you really want to fuck him. It could be a a twink, a bear, an otter, a circuit queen, a chub, a pup, a gipster, a daddy chaser, a leather man, a ladyboy, a Donald Duck.Richard: (stammers)Russ: Donald Duck's a gay guy who's been kicked out of the Navy.Richard: H-How do you know so many gay things?Russ: My grandfather just came out of the closet. Beautiful. Very inspiring. Dinesh: Gilfoyle, can I please be CEO of Pied Piper?Gilfoyle: Spoken like a true leader. But since your failure as a leader is a virtual certainty, tolerating your short reign as CEO in exchange for a front-row seat to the disaster seems fair. Plus, if I'm wrong, which I'm not, I get rich. So I'm down with it, Dinesh. Monica: There's another men's room on the fourth floor. Richard: Right. 'Cause then you would've seen mine twice. Richard: These guys, they're gonna need you, so if you want to support me, you support them. Think you can do that?Jared: I've always been very adept at taking the shape of whatever shoe is pressed down upon me so I can try to make it work.Gavin: So, what have you got?Hoover: Well, sir, I did as you asked. I flew the company plane to Shanghai, then Moffett, then Jackson Hole. Then I flew back to Shanghai, then to Jackson Hole, then to Moffett, which is where I just landed.Gavin: And?Hoover: Moffett is 28.3 minutes closer.Gavin: I fucking knew it!Hoover: Barker should've dropped you off first, sir. Gavin: Wait. What about headwinds or storm activity? I don't want to give him any room to wriggle out of this. Here's what I'm gonna need you to do. Fly each leg five more times and average them. It's the only way to be sure. Hoover: And we're not concerned with the expense of 20 more private transcontinental flights? Gavin: Of course we are. Jack Barker is costing the shareholders of this company a fortune, and he must be stopped. Gilfoyle: There is someone else. Someone who has zero strikes against him. Someone who has held high-level positions at one of the biggest tech companies in the Valley. Someone who's been on the cover of one of the most prestigious tech publications in the world. Bighead: He sounds awesome. Could we get him? Music"Stretch Your Face" by Tobacco (Opening title music)
