Since its humble beginnings in 1981 as a small storefront in Astoria, Queens, New Yorker Bagels has grown into the universe’s largest baker of fresh, crispy-on-the-outside, chewy-on-the-inside Sesame, Poppy, Cinnamon Raisin, and Pumpernickel bagels, among other popular varieties.

Stephanos Evangelinos, president and COO, and his crew already produce one out of every two bagels consumed daily in the greater New York area. Now, as Stephanos and his masterful digital strategist Rob Kenney tell our bagel-loving host Dean Rotbart, New Yorker Bagels is expanding its distribution nationwide, offering fresh next-day delivery direct to consumers everywhere.

The story of how New Yorker Bagels overcame the incredible odds and obstacles, and how it now plans to spread its bagels nationwide, is one worth chewing on, right now, along with your favorite hot morning beverage and, of course, a healthy schmear of cream cheese.

From his home in Houston, Wizard of Ads Gulf Coast partner, Charlie Moger, witnessed some of the worst – and best – of Hurricane Harvey.

As the rising waters came within two inches of his home, Charlie took to Facebook and Facebook Live to keep friends, family, neighbors, and complete strangers current on the unfolding story.

Charlie’s on-the-scene reports were informative and magnetic, as he spoke from the heart in ways that made Hurricane Harvey more relatable. 

Last week, still unable to drive off his property, Charlie took time out to share his personal story with host and reputation coach Dean Rotbart, and to talk about how businesses – big and small – stepped up AND failed to step up when they were needed most.

An English aristocrat, a French nobleman, and a future President of the United States were all players during one of the greatest boom-and-bust periods in American history.

This week on Monday Morning Radio, host Dean Rotbart and Wizard Academy alumnus Lem Lewis, aka The Ranch Broker, jointly interview Christopher Knowlton, a former Fortune magazine staff writer and London bureau chief, about his new book, Cattle Kingdom, detailing the hidden history of the cowboy west.
