RUSH: I want to grab Chris in Audubon, Minnesota. How are you doing?
CALLER: Mega dittos from Minnesota.
RUSH: Thank you.
CALLER: I was hearing your show since I was born in ’95 thanks to my mom.
RUSH: Wow. I appreciate that.
CALLER: I knew the phone number because I had it passively memorized just from sheer exposure.
RUSH: Wow. It’s cool. I appreciate that. Thanks. What’s up?
CALLER: I have an idea for you to help reach my generation, the Millennials. Uh, ’cause we don’t really listen to a lot of radio in general, uh, let alone talk radio. Um, ’cause, like, Millennials get bored. What we do is, we pull out our cell phones. We get on Facebook. We get on Instagram. My personal favorite is we get on YouTube and we watch videos to entertain us.
RUSH: We are working on… I’ve had this idea presented a couple of times this week, YouTube videos, Facebook videos — a couple-minutes, no more than two minutes long, because of the attention span.
RUSH: And we did. We posted a test video on our Facebook page this week, analogizing health care to cord cutting for cable TV. It was brilliant, if I say so myself. I’m flattered that you want this program to reach the ears and the minds and hearts of your generation and your friends.
We do too.
I think we could be, to quote Scaramucci, “phenomenally successful” in such an outreach. Stand by, Chris, because it’s something I think that we’re gonna seriously delve into and do it the right way soon. I’m so flattered that you’re out there, remembering the phone number ’cause you’ve just been totally exposed to it. But feel free to spread the word yourself! I’m not asking you to do that. We’re gonna take the responsibility for it. I’m just saying: If the opportunity happens, do not be defensive about it at all. That’ll help sell it.
