This week’s guest, David Page, is a well-known expert on American cuisine, culture, and entrepreneurship.

The two-time Emmy-award winner and veteran broadcast journalist is best known for creating the Food Network hit Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives and serving as its executive producer for eleven seasons.

David, president and executive producer of Page Productions, understands why some restaurants succeed while many don’t. Every owner, executive, and entrepreneur, regardless of their business sector, will take away actionable intelligence from David’s insights.  

If you’ve ever dreamed of opening your own restaurant, it’s absolutely essential to hear the cautions that David offers.

For foodies in the audience, David shares some of his favorite foods and restaurants, and the one dish he has a strong aversion to.

David is the author of Food Americana: The Remarkable People and Incredible Stories Behind America’s Favorite Dishes. The book is a literary feast of fascinating characters, food culture, pop culture, and nostalgia.

And stay tuned for David’s new podcast, Culinary Characters Unlocked, which is scheduled to debut in early May and feature inside stories of the food world from its most fascinating people.

Monday Morning Radio is hosted by the father-son duo of Dean and Maxwell Rotbart.

When it comes to running a competitive company, Bob Moog doesn’t play games. Well, actually, he does. Daily.

Bob is co-founder and president of University Games, the largest independent game company in the world.

For almost four decades, Bob has gone up against the biggest players — including Hasbro and Mattel — and found a way to beat them at their own game. Pun intended.

In fact, University Games distributes more products in more outlets and more markets than any other company focused on board games. 

The company now has six divisions: University Games (board games), Great Explorations (science and learning/glow-in-the-dark products), BePuzzled (puzzles and brainteasers), Briarpatch (preschool games and puzzles), U-Create (crafts and activities), and Front Porch Classics (classic games, built to last a lifetime).

University Games’ philosophy has always been to offer games that encourage social interaction and imagination through gameplay, with learning sprinkled in to spice it up. 

Bob’s story will inspire anyone who competes against entrenched giants. He’ll also share the management philosophy that has proven a game winner for just shy of four decades.

He’d be the oldest man ever to run for president, even as calls grow louder and louder for him to step aside.

Joe Biden?

No, William Henry Harrison, the successful 67-year-old Whig Party candidate back in 1840. 

Tying yesteryear to current events is Ron Shafer’s specialty. His contributions to The Washington Post’s Retropolis history column form the basis of two of his engaging books, Breaking News All Over Again and the forthcoming A Half-Naked George Washington.

Now retired, Ron spent nearly 40 years with The Wall Street Journal as a reporter, columnist, and political features editor, based out of Washington, DC.

On this week’s program, he makes clear that business owners and entrepreneurs can glean a lot of helpful information about where we’re headed if they only take the time to review where we’ve been.
