That's one eight, nine, two, four, eight, nine, two four now. Let's welcome our first listener contestant. Hi, you're on, wait, wait. Don't tell me high for Shelby Dini. Shelby where you calling from Denver Colorado Oh what do you do there on the public defender? All my gosh, so you know. Have you been doing that virtually, or are you still having to show up in court? Virtual for most of the time. Going back to court in July and how did that feel going back to court well and good, but it's really weird having to be in a mask and on six feet away from your client and everyone else. Have you ever been tempted just to show look? He's guilty says he can get out of there. Working not guilty. There you go. That was very good. You're good at your job. Shall me. Let me introduce you to our panel this week I up. It's an any winning writer as well as the voice of Jesse on the animated hit Netflix show big mouth. She's the author of the New York Times Bestseller. You'll grow out of its JESSI Klein. Next a writer for the current season of at home with Amy Sedaris it's Peter Gross. Hello And finally, making her debut on our show correspondent for the daily show with trevor, Noah and host of the new podcast that black ash show on Star Burn's audio. It's dull, say Sloan. Shelby welcome to the show. You'RE GONNA play. WHO's bill this time. Bill Kurtis Right. Here is going to read you three quotations from the week's news. If you can correctly identify, explain just two of them. You will win our prize any voice from our show. You might choose on your voicemail. You're ready to play. I'm ready. Let's do it. Here is your first quote. Person Woman Man. Camera TV those words might be the ones inscribed in marble above the door of the future presidential library devoted to whom. chomped right. Yes, it is in fact Donald Trump. convoluted, but you got there a few years ago. The president took a test given to people suspected of having dementia, and he aced it now to give you a sense for what that test is. One of the questions is to look at a picture of an elephant in say what it is, which is fine. Yeah, it's good to know. Our President can tell an elephant apart from crocodile that comes up a lot in bilateral trade talks with a Richard Scary picture book. This test also required him to draw a clock, and we imagined the doctor, saying no no Mr President clock. And draw, not show exactly. Why did he say those five words? Because if I'll ever see in that test is those pictures and beneath that it's not those five right, so he's been. He's been bragging about this test for a long time and when he was talking to Chris Wallace on Fox News, Chris Wallace not that hard so now he's got. It's hard, so his latest Fox News interview. He went on for about two minutes describing how difficult this was. They make you say five words in a row, and then a short while later. Make you remember them. When you don't have to say them in order right well. He says that if you say them in order to get a certain offer, you get extra points run. We actually asked Dr. if that was true. If on this very standard test, you get extra points if you say them again in order, and she said and I quote her in full. No. It seems like if you leave a dementia test bragging about all the extra points you got on your dementia test, you have dementia. And now the reason I should say that he keeps going on about this test is that he says it proves he's brilliant and he says Joe Biden. Could never pass this test no way and he's right. Because no way Biden could be limited to just five words, it'd be like. Man I met a man in a factory and he said to me Joe. They called him belly. Can he do that? I'm that old art school tests that used to be on TV where he ended. Send in a drawing of a turtle. Try to draw turtle, and then he could just go to art school like Hitler. All right. Let's move on to your next quote. Don't shoot your mother. That was a chance aimed at federal troops were now. Patrolling the streets of what city? Portland Oregon. It's under siege by anonymous federal troops with military gear and portlanders. Did what any of us would do in that situation. They called their mom. Portlanders don't like being seized shoved into unmarked vans. They prefer to be kidnapped in more environmentally friendly petty caps, so enter the wall of MOMS. A group of middle-aged women in Bicycle Helmets who are locking arms and taking on the riot police. Oh, the moms are here and they are mad well as they put it. They're not mad. They're disappointed. Chan things like respect, the constitution and speaking of that it's not too late to go to law school. You know what I would say. It was very interesting. Has I've been to port on multiple times and to be anywhere. That has more black lives. Matter signs in black people. Is Always suspicious, but when I started, the city was like I was like Oh good I realize there's no black people arrested shoot. I thought that would be a life. DETROIT CHICAGO, but they're just like shooting at White MOMS very music man make street. Oh. Yeah, the anonymous Athena. This is the woman who walked up to the riot police, the federal troops whatever they are. We don't really know stark naked. And sort of sat down and I don't know how to say this showed her glory eagled, she spread Eagle. If. That's helpful I think they were just like all right Ma'am I mean I don't know why he would want the street to give you a pelvic exam, but Haven't you ever heard of a street, PAP? It would be a bummer if you if you had. Like forty of your girlfriend's Raleigh. We're going to do it to. Got Down here guys. That's why you don't see that picture is her turning around going? Okay? Ladies were all here and now everybody. Take your clothes. She could've caught sitting on the ground at Portland. Was He got organic? All right shelby, we have one more quote for you. It is from a woman looking back after four months of lockdown I. Don't think I'll use them until the actual end time. So, what are Americans not using as much as they thought they would back when all this started Oh Yeah it's kind of the magical fruit. The more you eat or rather, the less you eat. I guess the less you. Hand being yes, beans. This week NPR's all things considered reported that after months of lockdown. Many Americans are now experiencing being buyer's remorse. As they realized they did not actually need all the beans. They hoarded back in March. All those Tinos pizza rolls though gone by April. One. Company reported a seventy percent increase in being sales back in March along with harmonicas and sticks and Bengals. Maybe it was, we realize. Gorging on beans was not a wise thing to do. When we were locked inside with their loved ones, it did not want to give them any more reasons to hate us. Did you guys? Did you do this? Did you guys run out and buy all the beans you could? Because you thought you'd end up surviving on them. Well the first three weeks of the quarantine I was on the Daniel vast. So it's the IS A. Old Testament Biblical fast, and basically the only things you can eat. Our vegetables. And you can only drink water is. That sound like a pandemic friendly di-, did you ever find yourself searching through the old testament like looking for a cheeseburger mentioned in the book? For example, you know you can't big meat and dairy. Good, the woman is good. I was just going to say. I continue to eat one Hershey's bar day in addition to all the other food about. Were just like a one Hershey Bar Day. That would have been impressive. Bar Plus On the Milton Hershey, diet, he wrote about in eighteen ninety. Five chocolate addition I'll throw eggs.

Cat Gamete starting got telling me if I'm telling the truth now. Okay, so Geremek's has partnered with Oregon to create a spray sanitizing system for retail stores and restaurants that disinfects customers as they walk in. A spokesperson for the system stated. This is a match made in Heaven Jerem Max is the leader and sanitizer in organism expert at sprang unwanted pests. Our current unwanted pest is Kobe nineteen. Like the Water Mr in the section of a grocery store, customers will be sprayed with a fine antibacterial Mr, twenty seconds the same amount of time. We should be washing our hands. Unfortunately, there have been a few hiccups in this well meeting plan while testing the new system at a CBS. Some customers complained of the miss ruining their clothes, hair or makeup and left him dripping with. One customer was quoted as saying. This is ridiculous. Everyone is soaking wet and flammable. One static shock and this whole place will go up flames I came in for allergy medicine, not indoor slip and slide, but it did make my shopping trip faster though I was able to pick up some items as I slid through the aisles, a customer that threatened to sue because her desire suit was ruined as she barreled down. The makeup style was informed that she couldn't sue. Do the damage injury waiver that was on the last ten inches of her CVS receipts. CVS spraying down their customers with disinfectant before they're allowed to come in making them somewhat slippery. Your next story of a safety solution comes from Peter Gross. The Dunkin donuts in Clinton Connecticut has been opened for drive thru service ever since the pandemic struck in March, but when the state move to phase three of its reopening this week, the store was finally allowed to have customers come inside. We were really excited to see some of our regulars face to face again, said store manager Lisa Kobe. Her franchises smaller than most Dunkin's though in Kabul was worried about covert exposure in such a tight space, so she asked for a little leeway from corporate and came up with a really intriguing idea. The six foot doughnuts, which was introduced on Monday is the perfect combination of edible food item, and once in a century pandemic safety protocol. How does the six foot? Don't work well if? If you've ever been inside of an inner tube than you know what it's like not to just order, but also wear a donut upon entering the store you were given your choice of glazed chocolate, vanilla or pink icing with sprinkles customers simply slipped the six foot donut over their head until they're comfortably encased in the six foot in diameter, forty five thousand calorie twenty five pound. Fitted with suspenders to help keep it at waist level. You can either start eating your way out of the doughnut in the store or take it home with you and enjoy the equivalent of seven hundred and fifty donuts at your leisure so far Cobo is thrilled with how it's working out. People have really been enjoying coming back into the store, strapping on a donut and bouncing. Bouncing up against other customers like they're in bumper cars. The CDC is proclaimed the six foot donut as ninety percent effective at preventing transmission of Corona virus, but one hundred percent effective at giving you a new malady called type two donut. Beatty's six foot donut served at a Dunkin donuts that people put around their waste to make sure they keep safe distance from the other. Other customers. Your last story of protective measure comes from Jesse Klein, a speed with which the pandemic has changed. Every aspect of our lives has been stunning, but at one pub in England. The changes are quite literally shocking in an effort to enforce social distancing among boozy crowd. One tavern owner in Cornwall installed an electric fence inside his bar to keep an abbreviated clients at. At Bay Johnny McFadden owner of the Star in tried several different tactics before going with the fence, but apparently things like ropes, floor stickers, and the fear of covert itself were no match for customers consuming one pint too many, so finally inspired by the electric fences, commonly used to keep sheep together in his rural farming town. He plugged in an apparently the threat of electric. has worked fairly well, says McFadden quote people are like sheep sheep. Keep away, people keep away. Some might be concerned at a bar owner whose installed a live electric fence and his establishment is opening himself up for many lawsuit, but as McFadden sees it quote as long as there's a warning sign on an electric fence and you are warned about it. It's totally legal McFadden, maybe no lawyer, but he's got a doctor's concern for the health of his customers and cheers to that all right gaffey somewhere there is a business that is opening up with. With one of these concessions to safety in the age of Covid is it from dual say CVS that started spraying down customers with disinfectant before they come in the door from grouse Dunkin donuts that selling special six foot donuts that you actually put around your ways to make sure you keep distance, or from Jesse a pub in England that has installed an electric fence to make sure that nobody gets too close. Which of these is the real story? I'm really think story that sounds plausible. Is the bar all right Kathy your choice. Then is Jesse story of the bar with the electric fence while we spoke to the innovator who came up with this new safety precaution. As long as there's a warning sign on an electric fence, it's totally illegal, and as the fear factor it works. He says in that accident. It sounds true. That was Johnny McFadden Landlord of the Star in the bar with the electric congratulations Kathy. You got it right year into point for Jesse. You've won a prize, the voice of your choice in your voice. You did it. I love it. Thank you so much, cathy thanks for playing and stay safe. Thank you. And, now the game where people who amazing things try out the Monday in for once is called not my job, so Pablo lock me is a model actor and author, but mostly she's famous for doing one thing better than anyone else, and that is eating. She's been a judge on top chef. From Within fifteen years. She recently released a series on Hulu. Called taste the nation where she travels the country to try different kinds of American cuisine pod. Lakshmi welcome to wait wait. Don't tell me thank you. I'm really glad to be here. That was sort of a joke, but I'm told that you actually do have a superpower that you're a super taster I was. Yeah I mean it's. It sounds more impressive than it is. It's like you know the human version of Len. Dogs can hear whistle set humans can't. That's awesome, so, but you didn't technically know that you had this ability, but did you know there was something different about your growing up? Did you know that you were special? Yes, I did I. Don't know about special, but definitely my family thought I was weird or strange, because even when I was a toddler I really enjoyed very spicy. Spicy foods very spicy for Indian cuisine, and so I would always seek out really spicy pickles in Chile's in my grandmother's kitchen, and they kept moving those jars, higher and higher on the pantry shelves, and then I would just climb them like the Monkey, and basically you know one times there, and the glasses oil the in it slipped from my hand in it now and I'm just hanging there for a really long time, because if I jumped down, I would've jumped onto Glasson, oil and. on save need, but I always had buried keen. Sense of taste and smell, which is not always great if you're dating me but I. Guess like my partner tastes like four showers a day. We were talking earlier on the show about what we've been eating during the pandemic. How have you been doing? Have you been cooking at home I? Assume you're quite a good chef I was. Else cooking five minutes ago. you know the first thing I did in pandemic was go out. Twenty five pound bags of rice and lentils, whereas you know my daughter was hoarding Cheerios and my partner was hoarding weirdly dried apricots, peanut butter, and we still have like forty seven boxes of cereal and I'm pushing the Syrian. who she and all of Diet because I need space in my answer is a possibility got like the dried apricots and peanut butter. Because he thought it would might make him smell a little better one can help. I, consider myself a decent cook, but I've gotten so bored with my own cooking. I just can't think of anything that interests me to eat anymore I'm like. Can they invent a new animal or something? Just Aga- my own cooking. Believe me the other day I was I. Can Somebody Else Cook please? Your daughter is like I'm going to make a cheerios castle. You are going to love with topped with dried apricots. You must have been at some time in your career in in a situation where somebody lovely. Who You love has made you some dish in. It's terrible. And you're not going to tell them that. What do you say? I. Don't say anything. You, know I. Just like I made it, my mission to to not ever lie to my daughter and I just talk around difficult questions. On I I just don't say anything I mean. I'm thinking of a particular Passover dinner at you. Know some my daughter's father's relatives hours. and I just didn't say I. Just you know I I hope you listen to the show. If she's an older Jewish woman. She absolutely does. I'm sorry. So I wanted to talk to you about your show. Taste the nation, which is awesome. You travel the country and you immerse yourself for the episode in various communities and talk about food as part of their culture, and it's great. What do you do if you're eating somebody's cooking and you really don't like it on this show because I've created the show in, I'm choosing where to go I'm going there for particular. Reason I, I have to say though in the native American episode I was very nervous I was shaking in my boots. Beth a pack rat. It was my first rodent. Scher I'd never had anything like it. I've been a lot of funky stuff over the years as you can imagine I had pack rat glaze with US Samak a sauce and it was divine. We're going to have up through thanksgiving. Traditional at being, you should have your in-laws over and having. Hop Rat. Is that what you say? I don't know what kind of. I. Don't know you should describe a pack rat for everybody. Akra is a very small desert animal. nests in bushes of it has its tail. It's very. Unique about eight of them full. If you're just eating the LEGS I. Personal experience now and you know when it's done because you boil it until the tail falls off, my aunt had passed them for Thanksgiving one year. You just go in the kitchen. It which is a skin possum in the sank and I'm just like. Okay I don't I don't know anything about your personal life, nor do I wanNA private. The one thing I would guess could break up a relationship between Jew and non Jew was Manischewitz wine. Like you drink this stuff? I gotTa tell you after snazzy over. The food was I was begging for. Managed. That's really bad food them. When someone says past the MANISCHEWITZ, you're like you must hate my food. Well Padma Lakshmi. It is a delight to talk to you, but we have invited you here to play a game. We're calling top chef. Meet top breath, so you know and work with the best chefs in the world. What you know of the top refs. We're going to ask you three questions about sports referees answer to correctly, and you'll win our prize for one of our listeners voice of anyone. They may choose for their voicemail. BILL WHO IS PADMA? Locked me playing for Christopher price of San Diego California all right. One of the pioneers of refereeing was hockey Ref Fred Waghorn was responsible for what important innovation in refereeing was it a? He introduced these striped uniform because quote I. Find It quite slimming. Be He was the first ref to check to player by picking him up and carrying them off the rink or see he was the first raft introduced whistles to the game to replace the traditional referees Cowbell. I'M GONNA. Say he should use the whistle. You're exactly right now. That's what he did apparently. At that point, referees use cowbells to indicate the start and stop a play, and a fans started bringing their own cowbells. Confuse them, so he said nobody else will have a whistle. All right next question. Joey Crawford is a legendary referee in the NBA suspended for the season because he did what a he grabbed the ball from Chris Paul after Paul missed, two free throws and said. Let me show you how to do it be. He challenged him Duncan who was sitting on the bench to a fistfight or see? He called a technical foul on Steph curry just because his drooling mouthguard was really gross. Say. The first one. You're say the first one that he walked up Chris. Paul took the ball and said. Let me show you how to do it after Paul Missed Free throws. Yeah knows actually number two challenge Tim. Duncan to a fistfight. This was after he had already called two technical fouls on Duncan for laughing at him its all bad, but this is not for you because there's one more question. If you get this right, great NFL referees went on strike right before the two thousand twelve season, resulting in the league bringing in replacement. Replacement, refs, who were not good. In fact, one of those rafts had done want before he got his chance at the NFL A. he had his driver's license revoked because of his poor eyesight be. He applied to be Aref in the English football league because he didn't know they meant soccer or see, he'd been fired from the lingerie football league for incompetence. is there in lingerie league. I. Think you guys made that out. No, there really is a lingerie football league. It's women playing football, football and lingerie not man. This is GonNa Shock. You not men playing football. Well, you know there you go misogyny. The men get to have all this padding doesn't seem fair I'M GONNA go with number one. You're going to go with number one that he had his driver's license revoked that he was so blind that they actually took away his license to drive, and yet he got a job refereeing in the NFL. Yeah! It was actually number three. It was the lingerie football league. In fact, there was an entire crew referees from the lingerie football league who ended up in the NFL and we're blamed for some of the worst things that happened during that brief period of time.
