Joining host Kelly Scanlon is Scott Miller, CEO and co-founder of Dragon Innovation, to talk about how the company helps startups turn their product ideas into real products.
Scott has been fascinated by hardware since, as he puts it, he was old enough to hold a screwdriver. He's gone on to work on high efficiency robotic tunafish, life-size robotic dinosaurs for Disney Imagineering and robotic baby dolls for Hasbro.
He was also led the Roomba technical team and led the production of 3 million Roomba units.
Scott recognized that many entrepreneurs often fail going from prototype to high-volume production, so he co-founded Dragon Innovation. The company helps startups and hardware investors, primarily in the area of consumer electronics, progress from prototype to full production. The company also helps their clients navigate logistics, crowdfunding, manufacturing and sales.

On today's show I discuss the continuing nature of the struggle between the world's global powers, America, Russia and China. I've been discussing these facts for weeks now and that my analyses have been echoed by major news outlets and political leaders. The hallmark but not the only criteria of a global power is their ability to have a manned space program. America, although not presently and not for some years now, Russia and China are all; therefore "Global Powers" and that along with other conditions you will not hear about in other outlets are the reasons and the direction behind the recent aggressiveness of Russian and China. Then, on the show I read an insightful article from the Manhattan Declaration discussing the nature of the discourse regarding homosexual "marriage" and the fact that Christianity's opposition to it is not based in bigotry but in the desire to adhere to God's plan for life and is not likely to change. Lastly, there are two articles regarding Mexico that I shared. One deals with the sad conditions but remarkable performance on intelligence exams of a poor girl in Matamoros. And Mattel tries again with a Barbie doll that represent Mexican culture with a Barbie in mariachi attire and I like it.
Robert Murch is the world’s foremost collector, historian, and expert on Ouija and talking boards. His bizarre relationship with Ouija began after watching the movie Witchboard in 1986, a century after the talking board made its debut. Murch purchased his first antique Ouija board in 1992, and became obsessed with unraveling the mystery of its origins. Since then he’s devoted his life to researching the history of the Ouija board and its founders, with Murch often traveling the world to track down descendants of all those involved with the introduction of the Mystifying Oracle.
Murch showcases his research and knowledge on his websites williamfuld.com and the upcomingtalkingboards.com, which together provide the most in-depth Ouija history sites ever created. Murch often collaborates with Hasbro (producers of the Ouija board today) and on various films, including What Lies Beneath, Sugar & Spice, and Drive-Thru. He has also consulted on or appeared in numerous TV programs featuring Ouija, including TNT’s Rizzoli & Isles, A&E’s Storage Wars and Paranormal State, Travel Channel's Mysteries of the Museum, Showtime's Bullshit!, Smithsonian Channel’s Millionaire Made Here, HGTV’s Who’s Lived in my House?, and CBS Sunday Morning. The Smithsonian Magazine consulted Bob for a popular article on Ouija boards and featured him and his research on the topic.
