Matt Schrader is an Emmy Award-winning producer and filmmaker. This special episode of his podcast “Blockbuster” dives into the struggles of starting a creative small business like a documentary and podcast production company, and how it parallels many of the hurdles of innovators from the past.

Tying in storylines from the pod’s first season on Steven Spielberg and George Lucas in the 1970s trying to make their first big movies, this new episode of “Blockbuster” weaves together the risks of trying new things (and the parallels to the dwindling movie theaters of the 1970s as television was exploding).

The GM Shuffle

Michael Lombardi is a former NFL front office executive that worked closely with Hall of Famers Bill Walsh and Al Davis and the soon to be enshrined, Bill Belichick. Adnan Virk is a sportscaster for DAZN where he covers boxing and hosts MLB studio show Change Up.

On this episode of “The GM Shuffle,” Lombardi and Virk Dive look into the impact of culture within organizations and offer insightful leadership lessons for creating a culture for success when starting a small business.
