This episode features Part Three of Brian Brodeur’s 90-minute conversation with pro-audio executive and milkshake aficionado, Piers Plaskitt.

They discuss Piers’ interactions with The Beatles; the difference between working at recording studios in New York versus London; Piers’ experience operating Stella’s Blue Sky Diner in Iowa – including valuable input on making a great milkshake; and the importance of integrity, customer service and loyalty when operating a business.

Piers applies the philosophy that there’s “no such thing as a bad idea,” to both the restaurant and recording business, and discusses how the Chinese character for ‘crisis’ contains the symbols for both ‘danger’ and ‘opportunity’.
