"Wayne Brady. I will. All. We order my credit card. He goes, oh, I thought that was you and what I used to be head of marketing for Sony, and I did a show with you with you years ago. And he said, I got, you know, like, there are a lot of ships in the business around two thousand nine and he said that fifty. I got laid off and he's like I didn't know what I was going to do. I'd been marketing for like thirty years or whatever. And so he. He called his friend Norman Lear because he had worked for. And he I don't know what to do normal like pretty much like, did you are you happy with your job? Do you or anything else go? I don't know. I'm not really happy with it anymore. Anyway, it goes well doubts time to do something new. And he just happened to have a passion for bread making. So he pursued it and opened this incredible bakery, in this tiny little town called those Alamos called. Los Alamos where the nuclear testing. I think it's a different Los Alamos. There's there's, there's a Los Alamos in New Mexico. Yeah. And this Los Alamos is. Just off the one on one. And so there's like a little it's like it's kind of a vineyard area and this tiny little town is sort of being revitalized by. Just like artsy creative types. So these old rundown places are now like like patik hotel, like dole old motels turned into like a Tiki hotel. That's any opened this really incredible. It's like the fucking best bread ever. It's called well. Bred. Well, bred? It's called Los Alamos. Name's Bob, and he was great. Well, I'm glad it worked out for him. Because it sounded like coming in on the story it sound like this guy was in marketing, and then was a waiter serving, you know, his shop. Well, then that was hit Brent. It was his it was his cafe. And, you know, and also just such an interesting lesson. I'm like, oh my God. You don't like whatever direction you think your life is going. And then all the sudden something changes and it's like, well, I'm just going to do this and other new thing now. So I don't know. It was it was very inspiration good for above good for Bob. Let's talk about you, Wayne Brady. How're you doing? I love these glasses. I have these was a kid. No. These originals. This is an original that the one you have is a reproach, but I have original original Landau air, and you can see the shape of the glasses is different, so cool. Yeah. Although someone has pointed out that if you got. The glass and hadn't seen the movie. The, the little exposition on the back gives up a lot of it's a lot of spoiler. Oh, yeah. They do that in the on on the cards to like as a kid. I remember having having the Star Wars cards, and depending on which cards you gave it actually told you the movie. Yeah. It's what you the exact thing. I'm hoping that, if you bought the card, you probably saw the movie. It's like no one watches talking dead. If they didn't watch Walking Dead. You know what I mean? It's like they probably we can't spoil anything on the show because people are probably already in just random glasses, if you were just like I'm going to get some water. I sure can't wait to go see the Star Wars movie, God, damn it, it's right here on the. Never again. He's very excited. He's very passionate rea-. Big. Bigs hours fan growing up will yes. And no. And I think it's an interesting thing thing because I, I'm, I'm writing a book right now called young gifted and wack about being a, a young black nerd from the hood and we've heard these stories in the eighties. Of course. Those of us that came they came of age about being being a nerd of the things that worked sessile to you people never talk about the kids who were nerds, and never had the things that you went.."
