"Ben Calhoun, set out on a mission much more eccentric and labor intensive than figuring out if a chicken is done by listening to the sound. There he is. I first heard about this whole thing in an email. It came from a listener. A woman named Emily ran, Sir. She works in the food industry. And the letter Emily wrote, was about a story she'd heard from a farmer. The farmer who told her This is apparently a person of some standing in the pork industry. And admittedly, I don't know the first thing about the pork industry. He's in charge of a pork producing operation that spans several states. The story, he told Emily went something like this. While ago he was visiting a pork processing plant in Oklahoma. He's walking through it with a friend, a guy who managed the plan, actually. And at some point, he stopped the boxes stacked on the floor labeled artificial calamari. He stood there, wondering for a second. And then he asked his friend. What's artificial calamari? Bung, his friend replied. It's hard rectum. Rectum that would be sliced into rings deep pride. And boom. There you have it. Okay. If I can let me just narrate for you what this would mean. It would mean that in restaurants everywhere right this second, people are squeezing lemon wedges over crispy golden rings, dipping the rings into Marondera sauce. And they're eating hog rectum. Now they're chewing, satisfied and deeply clueless. It's payback. It's payback for our blissful ignorance about where our food comes from, and how it gets to us. It's amazing, and it's perfect. But it also seems like it couldn't possibly be true. So I called up the farmer to talk to him. Personally, I wanted to hear it firsthand. And the farmer confirmed the story. The entire thing. The boxes the Bung But when I asked him to go on the record to tape an interview and give his name here on the radio, he very politely declined. Which seems suspicious, right? When I asked him why? He said he'd spoken with his girlfriend about it. And she suggested that he should think about the words that he wanted to come up when somebody Googled his name. This was all fine, though, because he referred me to the real expert. The guy who gave him the tour of the hog processing plan. And that guy, he agreed to talk. Well. Hi. Is this Ron? Yeah. Yeah, This is Ron Make meat processing plant manager presently residing in Mountain View, Missouri, where he runs an organic beef processing plant. They're called beyond organic. If the story really were true, Ron would have been the guy who explained to the farmer what was in those boxes. The boxes or £10 boxes, and they were all They get off so much like maybe a 10 to 12 inch piece of the Bond. And You know what it looks like. This looks like after their claimed and washed and everything. They look like a bunch of big noodles in a box and all it looks for But but specifically the labels that said imitation calamari Where did you personally see the imitation calamari lately? I've never seen a label say that that's all I was told. By the the people that told me that The people I work for. They told me that oh, the people that you work for told you that it was used for imitation calamari. Right. And is there any possibility that you think that the when they were explaining this to you? They they were kind of having you on a little bit. Having me on? Yeah, Like maybe. Yeah. Well. I wouldn't think that, you know, it could be 5%.

The case of Carlton Heard

"Plus court fees, which she has to pay because she put guilty. She was convicted. If the state had dropped the charger, she'd gone to trial. In one, these fees would disappear. I showed them to Ross to ask if he could explain the itemize list, fourteen different fees, some with names that suggested deep respect for catchall accounting, reparations county operations court, special projects fund something called ad fee. Russ had no idea what the stuff was. Laughing. Oh, my that's steep is what it is. Anna, who's the court? A total of seven hundred eighty four dollars and fifty cents on top of the five hundred. She paid the bondsman rusted. There's a way he can petition the court to waive the fees Vanna campaign, but she doesn't ask them to. He doesn't offer technically is not her lawyer anymore. List of fees was surprised to Anna to have you seen this before this number? Now? Did you know about all these fees? No. No. I mean, I plan to pay it. I'm just, you know. Do you have a job? No. I just lost my job. So I don't know. Just crazy. Rianne getting hungry, Sarah. She's pregnant. She just found out. She's happy about it hoping for a girl a month later, and it was working at McDonalds, her online account with the court. Meanwhile has turned red indicating that the county clerk has handed over the Bill to the attorney general's office for collection all this for an m for disorderly. Felony. Judge I was talking to for a different story in the series told me he was thinking of giving a defendant serious time what's serious time I asked explained well to someone with common sense, even one day in jail is devastating life changing to someone who's got no common sense. Maybe they do three years. Five years means nothing go right back out, commit more crimes. I knew any men punishment is relative what it takes to teach you a lesson depends on what you're used to, but there was more disturbing implication as well when that prowls this courthouse and throughout our criminal Justice system that we are not like them. The ones we arrest and punish the ones with the stink. They're slightly different species with senses, dulled and toughened. They don't feel pain or sorrow, or joy, or freedom or the loss of freedom. The same way you are. I would this little case for the state of Ohio wasn't little for Anna. In our interview, she couldn't bring herself to watch the bar surveillance video of that night. It was too upsetting. She teared up a couple of times thinking about what a horrible year at had been, and she blamed herself. She'd been stupid to go to a bar like that. She said the people she didn't trust. Anna doesn't have money. She doesn't have a stable job. She's really young, just twenty one. And I didn't feel the stress and outrage and shame of this case less than I would have. I think she felt it more. Before Annas final day in court, when she ended up taking the plea russet had only one interaction with the judge. Regarding Anna's case, he was summoned to her chambers Bakar bailiff who told us that judge Clancy had a question for him. Ross waited around for twenty minutes. Finally, the bail of came out and just related the question out of curiosity, the judge would like to know was the defendant in this case related to a county judge had recently retired. Same last name. Rest whole debate live now no relation. Russell me this almost a year after it happened. What if the answer had been? Yes. And it was related to the retired judge. Oh, said Russ, it would have been dismissed if they've found out she was a judge's knees or related in some way. I don't think she would have been charged. That how it works in Cleveland next time on Syria.
