Sam Davidson's blog

Every Tuesday, I write.

I share an idea I’ve come up with, a struggle I’m wrestling with, a puzzle I’m turning over in my head, or a story that I think the world needs to hear. You can sign up to get these emailed to you each Tuesday morning by clicking here

On Thursdays, I write at Batch about a business idea or concept, usually through the lens of my day-to-day work as co-founder and CEO or from the viewpoint and lessons learned of our purveyors. Follow along here

On LinkedIn and Twitter I often toss out quick thoughts and ideas that aren’t ready for longer posts just yet or something that I’m seeking feedback on. 

If you'd like to get more ideas like these sent to you each day, it's easy: sign up here.


 

Tune In at 5

Jamey Tucker came and sat down for a bit with me. We talked politics - specifically how my faith influences my vote (and more specifically how my faith influences my vote in the upcoming Senate election).

We also talked about broader themes: how 'Christians' are pandered to by politicians; the misconception that homosexuality and abortion are all Christians care about; the movement towards the middle by just about everyone. You get the point.

He said it would be on at 5 PM on News Channel 2. So tune in. But don't get mad if I'm not there.* I might have just been blowing hot air and he was being nice.

*My friend, Ryan O'Quinn is an actor. When he first moved to LA, he had a small part as an extra in That Thing You Do. He even had a one-liner. The day of the shoot he got to hang with Tom Hanks and ask him questions about the industry. Ryan thought he had arrived. That night, he called everyone he knew, telling them to go see the movie when it came out in a few months. However, to his horror, his scene was cut. He didn't answer the phone for weeks. So, if I'm not on the news, don't call me and ask why I wasn't. I'm too busy.
