The Mays MasterCast is the flagship podcast of Mays Business School at Texas A&M University. We share insights into how business and business school works while sharing our culture and lives with listeners. Our guests include current students, professors, alumni, and friends of the university who have distinguished themselves in the business world. In every episode, our hope is to find counter-intuitive insight, vulnerability, and humor. Our goal is to be the world’s premier business school podcast.

Episode 127: Kyle Koehler

What should and could food be?🥕🍅

Kyle Koehler, Co-Founder of Wildway, drops wisdom for small businesses to value the money they have and respect it. Grow your business sustainably, slowly, and in the right way. Developing a company's social mission beyond survivable, profitable, and sustainable. Early start-up challenges for an inventory- and cash-intensive business.

Kyle's take on food: Food as natural, sustaining, and nourishing. People not understanding food addiction ingredients, nutrition facts, and claims.

Some things you might consider reflecting on: Define what success looks like to you. “I’ve made it moments” are fleeting. Accolades from customers and employees are energizing.

Good Bull to the employees of Wildway!

Episode 126: Arvind Mahajan

In a new circumstance, do you recalibrate everything?

Arvind discusses: Texas Hold ‘em with friends; converging the gap, like Michelangelo’s painting, between intellectual and spiritual knowledge; understanding self and the larger phenomenon.

 When in a different circumstance, don’t assume the old rules will work; the Great Conversations; the Great Books of the Western World; and classes, the arena to have a great conversation.

 Good bull to Arjun Ahluwalia ‘15 and Adriel D. Maniego '15, founders of Jai Kisan!

Episode 125: Cindy Billington

Where’s your blue zone? What makes you see truth?

 Cindy shares with us: From “How do we increase engagement?” to “How do we address what our constituents want?” A come to Jesus meetin’. Quintessential grandmas (with pie). Listening, not responding. Learning. And when respond, reflect on what you learned without pronouns. Zoom fatigue and conferences.

Episode 124: Michele R. Thatcher

What’s going to challenge you to do something different?💡

Michele shares on Influencing HR, ESG, and Health & Safety for good. Growth: you don’t see it until you're almost through it. Failure moments don’t feel good, but you learn a lot. Methods for honest answers: one-on-one conversations and get to know people first. Texas A&M prepares students to have careers, not simply the technical skills. We appreciate Michele giving us her time and we hope you enjoy the episode!
Thanks and Gig 'em!
