📚 “Pimp My Dorm” — University spending splurge. Target’s Starbucks bet. Brightline’s Olympics train.

The WSJ examined 20 years of collegiate (over)spending — but the buck stops with the boards. Target added Starbucks to curbside pickup at 1,700 locations — turning a weekly shopping habit into a daily coffee habit. And Brightline, the first private Amtrak competitor, is breaking ground on rails from LA to Vegas — and it didn’t set a deadline, it set a finish line. $TGT $SBUX Want merch, a shoutout, or got TheBestFactYet?

BONUS #4 🥗 The Storyteller of Salad: Nathaniel Ru, Sweetgreen Co-founder

We recorded an interview in a restaurant, none other than Sweetgreen. We interviewed Nathaniel Ru, Co-Founder and Chief Brand Officer of the billion dollar salad chain. Nathaniel tells us about:  Launching a $10/bowl restaurant during a recession  How he used a boombox to drive business  Long-term relationships with local farmers like Firefly Farms (~15 yrs strong)  The new robotic restaurant in a suburb of Chicago  Best of all— his must-try salad “remix” order ‌On a personal note, these salads were a staple of ours when we worked on Wall Street. We’d chow down on spicy broccoli and arugula, while whipping up takeaways in our early newsletter days. So it was pretty cool when we got to toss our pesto chicken parm bowls mid-interview.

🦢 “Ugliest product ever” — Dyson’s cancellation headset. Campbell’s Madden strategy. Amazon’s TikTok zucking.

Amazon’s newest product is a TikTok-style video shopping feed, but it’s not to compete with TikTok - it’s to compete with itself. Campbell Soup stock is up 30% this year thanks to Chunky Soup’s Madden strategy. And Dyson just revealed an air-filtering headset with noise cancellation, but it violates the fundamental rule of product design: You can make an ugly product, but you can’t make the person ugly. $CPB $AMZN $AAPL Follow The Best One Yet on Instagram, Twitter, and Tiktok: @tboypod And now watch us on Youtube Want a Shoutout on the pod?

BONUS #1 🔥 The Inventor of Virality: Jonah Peretti, Buzzfeed Founder & CEO

In our first TBOY interview, we chat with the Founder and CEO of Buzzfeed, Jonah Peretti. Buzzfeed was the first media company built on virality, harnessing the power of the internet to scale humor, joy, news… and a listicle on which Disney princess you are. But before Buzzfeed went public for $1.5B in 2021, Buzzfeed really began when Jonah was a student and turned a sneaker email with Nike into the 1st viral sensation. So we’re whipping up the Takeaways with Jonah on why something goes viral, what it says about our own psychology, the meaning of humor, Millennials vs Gen Z, what would surprise us about Buzzfeed, how the media industry is like a musical concert — and how he’d host a dinner sitting between Mark Zuckerberg and Rupert Murdoch.
