Then we run through our thoughts on Aaron Rodgers and the abortion bill the WI Assembly proposed.
And Jane picks her March Madness Bracket using one important piece of criteria: the mascot.
Guest: Todd Allbaugh
Jane and Kristin are on a field trip and doing today’s show from the Civic Media World Headquarters in Madison Wisconsin. Todd Allbaugh of the Todd Allbaugh show joins us for the first hour and we kick off the day with a question that is very topical to us since we are in town for professional development and training: How do you feel about mandatory professional development days at work?
Professional development training is essential to personal and career growth, but how people feel about it can vary widely. Some view professional development training as a valuable investment in their future, an opportunity to learn new skills and advance their careers. Others may view it as a burden or a waste of time and resources, especially if the training is not tailored to their needs or interests. Additionally, some may feel intimidated or uncomfortable with the idea of professional development training, especially if they are required to participate in group settings or confront their weaknesses. Ultimately, how people feel about professional development training depends on their individual goals, interests, and experiences.
People use a variety of methods to choose their brackets for the NCAA basketball tournament, commonly known as March Madness. Some rely on careful analysis of team statistics, player matchups, and other data-driven factors. Others make their picks based on personal biases, such as their favorite teams or colors. Some choose based on historical trends, such as picking the higher-seeded team or the team with the best tournament record. Some even use more creative methods, such as picking based on team colors or flipping a coin. Ultimately, there is no one “right” way to choose a March Madness bracket, and everyone has their own unique approach.
As for Jane Matanear, she goes with “which mascot would win in a fight.”
