[Podcast] Earbud_U _Episode #4 - Elin Barton


Oh my, the trouble with bootstrapping, right?

Elin Barton is the owner, founder and President of White Knight Productions, based out of Vestal, New York.

Elin has an incredible background in film and video work. She is also a marketer who understands, at an instinctive level, the power of the moving image and how it can impact how we buy, try and even follow.

The team at White Knight Productions is amazingly talented and they have developed a unique vision and approach to addressing the needs of their clients. Where video marketing is the future, the team at White Knight is blazing a trail there as fast as they possibly can.

And Elin did all of this through bootstrapping. Not taking a dime of VC funding to build your own project is about as brave as it comes, particularly when you have a family and other responsibilities, yet many, many women are becoming entrepreneurs and are making the move to do this. They are truly pioneers and showing the way forward.

And, Loddy Doddy is pretty friggin’ funny as well…

I was very excited to talk with Elin and I look forward to talking with her more in the future.

[Opinion] I Am the One Who Knocks on Bad Water

We here at HSCT are fans of the AMC show Breaking Bad.


We are currently binging on the last few episodes of the series on Netflix… a service of which we are also big fans.

One of the narrative elements of the show that coursed consistently through its five seasons was water:

  • Water in pools
  • Water used to clean up after a meth making accident
  • Water used to replace a chemical stolen from a train

And on and on.

In a crucial conversation, the pool of meaning is filled with “stuff”—emotions, ideas, thoughts, reactions and responses—that determine how the conversation will proceed.

Of course, if that crucial conversation is occurring around something that matters, then the pool of meaning can be filled with some brackish water.

On Breaking Bad, pools (and water) are used for cleansing and clarity. Or, sometimes, like in The Graduate, as a place to “just, sort of, float along peacefully.”

In a crucial conversation though, the pool can be filled with “shared” meaning—where each participant is being a careful steward to the reactions, emotions and responses of the other party.

Or it can be filled with “personal” meaning—where each participant jealousy guards their own reactions, emotions and responses and uses them as weapons against the other party.

We here at HSCT don’t condone violence, and Breaking Bad serves as an awesome commentary on the state of the contemporary American psyche, but wouldn’t it have gone better for Walter if he had operated on the principles of abundance and shared his pool of meaning sooner?

[Thanks to Breaking Bad & Philosophy for pointing out some of these things to me.]

We would love to see you there!
