"Yeah the NAPKIN OVER THE HEAD. If I've If the stuff I've read is to be believed is to hide your shame from God because it's such a decadent act to eat this tiny bird and it's really meant to be something that only the Bushiest of the boozy can enjoy and it is in fact illegal now but it is something that was very popular. I believe during the renaissance if I'm not mistaken or at least that's kind of win started. It's the hide your sin from God so that you don't have to live in shame. That's right that's right. That makes more sense. Hugh how about you any Any any crazy Behind the curtain glances at you know Weird High Society Banquets or any strange stuff that happened upon and catering or even just like guests at your restaurant without naming names. Just give us a little taste. No I mean not really. I don't know maybe I just lead a boring existence. But no it's not really. She's and I wouldn't tell you had to at least serve Michael Stipe. Before can we at least assume that that's the case? Yes okay great. He's never done anything weird. He's not a weird guy. He's really nice and pleasant as I've seen him. I've seen him around town multiple times. Lovely lovely guy guys. I think we're wrapping up here. Is there so both of you? Have podcasts out. That are that are pretty new Hugh you've got the passenger. Can you tell us a little bit about what's going on with that show right now and Just what what it is. It's a travel show so it's on hiatus Because nobody's traveling. Nobody wants to hear about traveling. it's a show just about places ago and what? I see and what do where you go when you get there. It's like just discovering that every place you go has this heartbeat that you wanna find and just And I'm your tour guide. I would just say it's it's it's better than Hugh is selling it right now. It's a great show. I've listened to episode classic restaurants or the under promise in overdeliver. He does it all the time I work with. This guy tries amazing podcast. Food is amazing. I would just say specifically because you're listening to this show. I would recommend listening to the two most recent episodes of the passenger just because it is a a very serious look at what the restaurant industry faces right now but we but just keeping in mind that there are some good things out there too but hugh. I think you might be able to tell for this episode. Hugh and I don't mean to speak out of turn but your outlook is a little bleak. But it's but it's very straightforward. It's it's an honest Negative per spa. I think that's what we need. We need we need honor society and that's why well you know there's this thing I learned about recently. Someone said I'm so tired of all this toxic positively giddy. Sometimes it's okay to just be angry about something and that you know the the me that stayed with me almost as much as my my ill-fated appearance on your podcast Richard Food Court with Richard Blaze. It's a fantastic fantastic show. Integrates SEGUE MY REPELLED NOLAN? I had had a lot of fun. We were able to preserve our relationship but there were moments where our friendship was INSA dire straits over our profoundly personal feelings. What what is Food Court Richard? Yes food court is my new podcast. That at one point recently hit number. Twenty four in the comedy category. I we. I waited for some studio applause. Like you guys. I believe we'll put it in there. You go food. Court is where we take celebrities like yourselves chefs actors writers Comedians and they come on and they debate some serious hard hitting food. Topics like you guys did. Like what's better? Bacon or sausage flour tortillas versus corn tortillas real heavy heavy hitting serious topics get debated on food court and then at the end. Of course I make a decision that most people disagree with and that is the general assessment of the show. But we are having fun doing it and thank you so much for being a part of it. You GotTa get you on the on the on the on an episode what. I put my hat in with your producer to to be on the show because I happened in on a recording. A little while back that you're making and I so badly want to be on. The show is a lot of fun Ben. Ben Says ill-fated but everyone that I've talked to says they think he made a better argument. I think it's just. He did sausage sausage and Bacon. And I think I swayed judge blaze with the idea. That sausage is more adaptable. Or It's more variety and sausage bacon. I think that was kind of what the kicker was. But then you gave me an absolute run for my money and I did not think. I was going to emerge victorious so I wouldn't look at it as a as a negative thing. All the honest albion even said he was signing with you the whole time so it was. It was the topic verdict that I had to deliver. Because you guys with your background and experience come in with information like most of my gas are just shooting from the hip and you guys came in with actual facts. And I think the next time you come on the show you need to argue as a team and we need to bring in another celebrity duo or trio to go up against you guys. Oh Wow I would love that. Can WE DO Simon Dr. I just saw him recently. And I've always found him to be delightfully prickly. I would love to go head to head with that guy. He is even more so now. Because if you go to his instagram page. He's not shaving during quarantine so he's a bald man who now has lots of hair. I've do the do the same thing. Actually guys I was I was. I met this stage now where I'm impressed when I hop on a call or something like one of the first things I noticed when Hugh and Matt popped up on the video call. I was like wow. These guys are still shaving. They've got together man. I need to like. I heard that it was safer. That's all that's all it is supposed to be. But I think I'm going to be coming out of this looking like a character from the Old Testament. You look like a really cool college math professor. Thanks guys like the cool one. Stand on your desk. Throw textbook away. He's got the Dr Manhattan back around you stand up and you've got a blue penis dangling in front of you. This is weird. We've had a lot of fun on this episode but we do know that there are a lot of people out there who are not able to work in a restaurant right now and make the money they used to make so just want to put this out there that the National Restaurant Association Educational Foundation has set up something called the restaurant Employee Relief Fund. It's it's something that you can both donate to and hopefully benefit from if you are having that experience right now and and having some hardship in the wake of the corona virus disease You can go to R. E. F. Dot us to both donate and or seek assistance there and we were recommend you do that now if possible. Please donate if you can You know we are going to be doing that here on our end and if you do need assistance that's a good place to go. Are there any other things you guys want to shout out here at the end all I would say is just remember? I'll try us a culinary sort of analogy here but like the forest burns down every once in a while and usually after that Morales grow and like we are going to get through this. Like you mentioned during our conversation like things are going to come back. It's going to be different but we will get through this and we will get through it together. Yeah I'm more of the burning. The forest down myself right now but I think that people just need to realize it's not that a lot of us won't have trouble reopening. It's that a lot of this. Industry is going to have a lot of trouble. Six months down the line after reopening in less consumers really make a a good effort to to do it they always loved doing which is going out and eating good food one wearing other. You'RE GONNA get it there's GonNa be ways to get it. We're we'RE GONNA come up with those ways in a safe environment and we just need your buying as eaters you know he. I heard a great perspective today about how. That's really the case for this notion of reopening the country reopening the economy. You can't just flip a switch it's about people and thereby in in general whether it's spending money whether it's going to restaurants whether it's going to ball games or movies or concerts again it's all about winner. People going to be you know comfortable enough to to resume that it's not about what the President says you can't make people you know just magically rejoin life the way it used to be so there's going to be like a kind of a pendulum. Swing is certainly not going to be like a rebound but I think you know cautious. I try to take the percents of cautious optimism I'm ready for that switch to be flipped. And I know that I'll be out there doing those things but it's going to be interesting to see. We want to thank you guys. Thank you. Thank you Richard so much for your Time Today. I. I don't know about our fellow listeners. Matt but I learned a lot of stuff that I didn't know. Which is you know. That's a very low bar so nobody get a real big head about that. It's easy for me to learn new things and we are going to. We're going to call it a day but just because this episode is over it doesn't mean the show is over. You can find Hugh and Richard Online. You can learn more about their work. You can find their new podcast that we've talked about. Do check them out. We're we're not recommending them just because we're friends with these guys. These are fantastic. Shows and a lot of work has gone into them so check them out. Let us know what you think. They're available now. Wherever you find your podcast in the meantime you can find us in the usual places. We're all over this this Internet thing. We think it's a fad. That's going to Going to really take off in a few years so we're on facebook where an instagram. We're on twitter. We lost our pinterest account. Yes sorry about that. That was my fault guys. I was inappropriately posting some things about magic the gathering this thing. Yeah it's You can find us on all those places where conspiracy suffer conspiracy stuff show if you can call us right now if you want to or number is one eight. Three Three S. T. W. I T. K. You can leave us a message you might get on the air or maybe you'll just send a message to us and we'll get to listen to it. You might get a call back from me. I'm kind of bored at night sometimes. So we'll see how that plays out right before we end here. Are there any? Do you guys have any you open restaurants that are doing any kind of delivery or to go or anything right. Now that we could support or that people would want to support D- You'd WANNA call out people people in southern California and the San Diego area can support Juniper Ivy which is doing a weekly menu and curbside pickup as well as a couple of locations of crab shack in San Diego and Orange County.

"Richard and Hugh. Can we switch gears for a second? Yes Richard You said the phrase quickfire and I've always had a question because I the three guys here. We've we've been onset before for various things and I'm always had a question about cooking shows. Somebody who's top chef is example. But just because you guys have both had experience being on that show in various capacities. I think you could probably insert any competitive cooking show into this for this question but generally you will see a segment where there are contestants chefs cooking their hearts out for you know in a long period of time and then afterwards there's a whole different camera setup. There's a whole different like feeling an area where we're shooting is happening. I know for a fact that that takes a long time to get right in to continue moving to shoot something like that. How do you keep that food cooked furiously by these chefs? How do you keep the integrity of that food? Moving over to some other place and then kind of sitting out waiting as you go down the line of you know a judge's judging that food I mean th there is. We're not as a judge you know you're not judging food on temperature. Usually temperature is the one thing that everyone is. Although different shows are a little bit different that temperature is the one thing that everyone is understanding that. Hey this is not at its optimal temperature right now so. I think that's where you're going with that. You know people understand that it might have been five minutes or ten minutes or fifteen minutes. That the food or their plate sat there before it was judged and that can affect also the the inside baseball scoop. There is as a cook and a chef. We know that you don't taste changes when something's hot or when something's cold so knowing that knowing the type of food to cook can sometimes become an advantage you know. I mean there's lots of contestants myself included probably know that like oh well a very cold. You know rod seafood dish. Might be a good thing to serve right off the bat because it's going to be cold. There judges unit tasted I. It's going to have high acidity. It's going to affect the palate of what that judge tastes after this dish. So hopefully I'm not diving too deep into the game right there but as a judge we all sort of understand that hey Temperature is in to be considered most of the time. Yeah I'll I'll I'll Samar Adam. Don't work with the show anymore. Neither do I. Quickfire challenge starts and then it stops and then they read everybody rules and they reset cameras. Knew that thing happens all the time. There's other strategies involved richards actually got a classic strategy which I've picked up on but I don't know if anybody else's I don't even know if it's strategy on his point but in a in a scenario where we're cooking for a lot of people and they g h have to approach us for that taste of whatever we're doing and then they're going to vote on mass later on I'm always of the mindset that like I just want to get as much as possible Richard. Not so much. Because you're never told how many you have to serve so Richard Slow Rolls One played up another minute. Another up. See I've got twenty in front of me. I'm pushing it out going crazy. He's this exhaling. He's fine deep breaths then and he's just slow roll. Yeah on the Houston Astros of top chef. That's what we're getting to. That kind of thing is just so interesting to me. When you're thinking about trying to make a television show and put out great food that to me is always interesting. Just how you actually manage the food itself. Us breaking down. A big part of the show is that you know. Hewson amazing chef who cooks in restaurants. And so you have to sort of break yourself away from maybe the type of chef you are in your restaurant versus the type of chef. You are on whatever. Show it that you're cooking because you saying this right now like hey. There's people that this event I wanna feed all of them. I WANNA get them food. I WanNa make them all happy quite honestly I could care about the three sound bites of the three people who don't like it. I only care about the four judges that are rolling up to me in this contest. And I'm going to pay very special care to these four six little bites so it goes deeper than even what used suggesting. Not only do I slow roll. But I- preserve the forest six little bites for the most important people at the most important time I have always wondered in these shows where so much dramas created by the clock and the countdown and like. Oh No I have to Redo my batter. Whatever all of that stuff. Is this an accurate time? That line that we're seeing like as a viewer like is it pretty preserved or are there moments where they cheated a little bit and stop the clock and that gets cut out bills. It's generally pretty accurate. But you gotta realize like the dramas created edits. It's you there's so many different perspectives. I mean a show. Top Chef has probably eight cameras going. You're filming much longer than the whatever. The forty two minutes of television is for an episode. So they've got eighteen hours of tape that they're whittling down to forty two minutes in their angle. Is THEY WANNA find drama? They WANNA find humor. They WANNA find mistakes. They WANNA find burning. You know completely botched scenarios They lived for that Richard. I'm trying to watch your face. Yeah I mean I I just feel like hugh things. I'M A company man. Now that's what all the facial expressions.

"I did a like a pair upside down kick and so it calls her like four eggs in the batter and I remember having somebody like handwriting. A postcard saying it was good but the egg shows were a little weird to get around. Why it's not like people like is the like well. This is why this is why it's so important to have. Magicians like you guys amongst us who who can provide. I think that's that's a legitimate reason but I guess what I mean is I think you know no matter how difficult our the the you guys are going through? The restaurant industry is going through in the hospitality. Industry in general is going through. I don't think we're ever GONNA lose that need for for people with your skills and I guess I was listening to episode of the passenger. Hugh where you were talking with Chris Wilkins of route baking company here in Atlanta. And my goodness dude. I mean the reality of our situation that you laid out with him was heart wrenching from somebody who loves food and has enough means to every once in a while. Eat at a restaurant at the of the caliber. That you guys you know the food you guys create i. Guess what. I'm I'm what I'm trying to understand is do you think there's a version of this the way it plays out that innovation plays a huge role for people like you to still be able to get food to consumers and make a living in. Just maybe a different way. Yeah there is but I worry that that is so shallow and basic and and it loses some core aspect of what I think is most important about true restaurants which is hospitality. I mean but we saw those coming before this I mean. Richard can attest to this sue. I mean they're they're flaws in the logic of fine dining and what we do every day is and we see it on the bottom line and and that's been you know when we see this week `greenification of America. It's kind of terrifying to a lot of us as chef says to is. Is that really where we're moving towards? Because I don't want together it just really quickly. In case anyone is the notion of sweet. Green is like kind of like sort of AAA health. Food kind of chain. That's like in California is referring to yeah and they start Philadelphia and the gun everywhere but and I'm not dissing them. I think they provide good service. And it's a good product in the in the end. It's just what it lacks for me is service It it lacks the idea of a chef coming up with an inspired dish and nailing it and really impressing that way so we can come up with a lot of different ways to do really great to go food and stuff like that as a you know giving people options restaurant caliber meals to have in their home. I don't want that to be everything we do anymore but I'm also terrified. That AMERICAN CONSUMERS ARE NOT GONNA. WanNa come gather round a bar. Yeah I mean it kind of has created. I think the big the big issue is that you know one restaurants and food everyone. Everyone's a consumer of food right. So that's the beauty of the business and what we're finding right now is the the ultimate issue is that it's it's one business that can't go one hundred percent digital right. It can't go one hundred percent online. You physically need to have something in front of you. You need to put it in your body So I mean I think that's the massive challenge but what you're saying already. This is already been happening. Third Party delivery services for some of my places. Were you know thirty to forty percent of specific locations business already so in one way? We've seen this coming. You know third party delivery pickup to go fast casual food and quite honestly through the last horrendous moments nine eleven people had to adapt fine dining took a massive hit. Two Thousand Eight. I think that's when the single subject restaurant was was sort of born after that so I think this is going to create something. I'm kind of excited. Although it's going to be a challenge what I agree with you as I'm kind of excited for at least the challenge of you know. Can you create some sort of restaurant experience? Perhaps at home. And you know it's never going to be the same. But the challenge itself I find somewhat inspiring just kind of dawned meals like some of those meal prep services like Blue Apron which I think is. Yes it interesting idea. It's like Oh Hey Watch. I watch out her to the point of what I was saying earlier about. Not Buying the hype and don't WanNa put in guises livelihood at risk and so hilarious that blue apron and all those meal print services sponsor literally. Everybody Gal I know I know but don't let it let it fire. I want to hear what are you coming from? I think? Blue Apron and groups like that. We're becoming untenable before this now. They've they're probably the happiest companies in the pandemic economy other than three M at zoom. So it's it's it's interesting to see how long that's GonNa last. I don't know I mean what what is this is going to completely change our industry and I may. We'll all come back. I mean we'll we'll be okay. I'm not worried about reopening. I'm worried about six months after reopening when the landlord still trying to lean on me because he wants to a slight uptick in rent. And I'm like dude. We're doing sixty percent of what we did last year. You can't raise the rent on because there's nobody who's GonNa open up a restaurant here so you know I think we are empowered. Right now Because you know what I used to hate when bosses would ever say this to me is becoming true which is I- landlords. Need me right. Now they need me so they have to make me happier. That's really important But it used to be like like bad bosses welby savings. There's ten other people behind you for the job. It's like well that's actually going to be true right now. The interview on. Npr Today about A property owner commercial real estate owner. Whose tenants who are business owners are not able to pay rent right now and he's like okay. That's that's how it's going to be I get it. I support you. I'M NOT GONNA collect rent this month. But then he in turn went to his bank and the bank isn't giving him a break you know. The bank isn't passing on that too. I'm not no everyone's getting hit but it's fascinating to see how this is going to play out because eventually the banks are going to have to play. Nice it's just inevitable like what's what's the alternative. I don't understand you know a future where the banks hard line everybody and close every thing down you know. Maybe I'm being naive. I'm interested as business owners. What you guys think about how that aspect plays out. Well that has really interesting. I'm glad you're speaking us. Lobbyist for developers landlords of the world after realized that like our our bottom line profitability. is a lot lower than landlords and developers So there I just think there's this needs to be a give and take We've filled their coffers. We build their buildings with aspiring businesses. That employ people do well. You know they need us and now more than ever and. I think that they have to pony up and be willing. I'M GONNA lose some skin in this. I wanted to see them lose him skin and I hope I didn't misrepresent. That's that's really what what my point was. Is that eventually even? The banks are going to have to lose some skin. Everyone's going to have to kind of get on board with this chain of events you know the banks can't hardline. Everybody the real. The property owners can't hardly everybody. Eventually everybody in this chain has to kind of be like okay. We're in this together. How can we kind of prop each other up and help each other out? I think the one really good thing we've talked about before on on an episode here. The really good thing that we have here I think for humanity as a whole is that we do have a you know in this scenario a common enemy. That happens to be a microbe or you know a a a thing that is smaller than you would be able to see what the microscope. And it's affecting all of us and it does feel like the only way out of all of this is a tremendous amount of empathy. Which I think we you know as a world as a species we could certainly use a ton more of and this is actually a way to hopefully foster more of that and if you know if we can't achieve that then we'll have a major problem with the banks because they're compounding interest anyway so we'll be okay maybe now degree. I wish. I wish this was a visual podcasts. Tastic them but thank you for that moment I I yeah we do. We do have a common enemy in this in this. In Cova de and We have a common enemy at least fifty four percent of us and the Black Lester prisoners instead. But I don't know I mean I. I WANNA see empathy. I WanNa see Compassionate when I see patients and people. I don't always see it I've seen some people angry driving around and stuff like that and I just want to be like mellow out driving around angry. Yeah Yeah I know it should be home. What do they do inside? Idiot Scout. I've been driving around a lot because I'm I've been doing meals for world central kitchen everyday so I borrowed a van and drive around to needy Organizations in Athens drop off food so I see a lot of stuff going around. Well that's something that's Ki. Ay Am really glad we're getting to this part of of the conversation because one thing that we've seen here in the US and abroad as been This this not just like a repurposing from a business perspective in the way we were talking about earlier but a repurposing for community support now to a degree. The stereotype about the American south is very true. Horrible things happen here but you're not going to go hungry because everybody is always going to be like trying to help you throw food at you wherever you go. And and what? What astounded me. Recently here in the south but in the rest of the world as well is seeing these these initiatives. That kind of grew organically but so quickly where where people are doing what you're describing. Who they're saying. Let's let's make sure that people who are elderly or immuno compromised and can't get outside. I have you know if not some sort of human interaction. They have something to eat and it made me. It made me think about how intertwined food is with community outreach. This sort of to your point Richard. where he said you know. Everybody is a consumer of this. What are some like community outreach? Things that you guys have seen that you know that that. I don't WanNa be too pollyanna or optimistic or naive about. But what are some things that you've seen? Are You participated in that have inspired you in this current situation? John I mean for me. I mean. Everything's been well documented but it's the feeding and cooking for restaurant workers in employee's sending Food to hospitals to take care of healthcare workers you mentioned earlier. Jose Andres and you know the support that I've even received on my platform to get donations to world central kitchen. I mean that's what again cooks and chefs because what we're trying to do each and every day when we're not in a crisis is just make people happy you know we sort of turn that up a couple of levels when when we have to you know bring someone joy and good food and hospitality can do that okay. We'll be right back after a quick word from our sponsor and then more with Richard and hugh social distancing slows the spread of grow.

"And we're back. Let's keep talking with Hugh Jackson and Richard. Blaze, are I want to jump to something that all of us have been dealing with our whole lives as soon as you hit I. Guess what you would consider the adulthood marker where you can go out to a grocery store and gather all of the things that you or your family needs. Survive for a certain amount of time. You guys as chefs and restaurant tours. I'm assuming have spent a lot of time at grocery stores I. Know For sure Richard. You've been at whole foods a whole lot. Just from the top chef episodes but. there's you know when when we as an individual are going into a place to buy procure. That, we are going to cook the way you guys would in a restaurant. What do we need to know about where we go? What strategies we used to do the best for ourselves for nutrition for our economics. Like how do you make those decisions? And what should we do well I? Think a lot of those decisions as kind of a tricky question because I think a lot of the decisions that chef will make is dependent on this skill and the training that they have so. I mean I'll just throw one. Like, you know not buying the most expensive of meat or the most expensive fish, because the market has created or inflated that price, and you know a braised stew with a piece of meat, and some oxtail in bone marrow is probably going to be more delicious and probably the type of food. You're going to get at a restaurant like ours. Anyway, so one would be. It's dependent on the on the scale of the of the cooks kind of. Of, tricky, you might say a little bit. Don't buy into the hype necessarily of even a place like whole foods where you know all of those super pricy cuts of meat are available, and maybe there's a little bit of marketing behind this notion that we can be just like pro chefs by buying this really expensive stuff and and and really what's most important, is maybe educating yourself and upping your basic skill set in the kitchen rather than. Leaning on buying expensive ingredients right yeah I I, would say well first of all. The hype has sustained my career, so let's be careful what we say but. I will say that like one of the things that has been fun and I. I use that word very carefully during this quarantine has been cooking at home and you know I hate to use the top chef forward, but doing the quickfire challenge where? I found a package of Sanca behind my dog. Food been the other day and I don't even know. Sanca still made instant coffee and a can of tuna, and some white beans, and you know and a piece of celery that clearly should be in the compost Bin and can I make a dish out of that. Can I make a delicious? It's been fun in that sort of way having to use all the ingredients in your house or freezer or cupboard, and that's what good chefs in great chefs. Anyway. What did you do with the sinker? I love that because that's a coffee connoisseur, I know I. Know You adopt. My wife made the de. La is a Dhillon ago. The to ingredient coffee and it kind of went viral. She's got one hundred thousand views on this. You know to ingredient coffee It was kind of kind of fun I. Just what I? What to here Hugh don't think I missed this. Because we are a video, call you. You've got a diagram. Your. New brings visual aid to a podcast. But when.

"You are here and that makes this stuff. They don't want you to know this is. This is a very special episode for us. It's one we've been excited about for a while now. Today we are diving into the culinary world and as anyone who has ever worked as a chef as a cook in front of House or more can easily attest there is an entirely different universe behind the kitchen doors. It's a world and a reality that most diners. Most restaurant patrons never really see it should go without saying but we'll say it. The people in this world are some of the hardest working most driven individuals on the planet today. We're getting a firsthand exploration of this world with help from two luminaries of the Culinary Universe Hugh Atchison and Richard Blaze. Thank you so much for coming on the show today guys. Thanks I was up. It's it's really nice to connect with the In this video conference the way. We're we're making this recording happen right now. You both have fabulous looking homes. Thank you yeah. I I really just have this stove and this cabinet behind me. The rest of the house is in shambles. But this is this is where I do all of my work now. Well what else do you need? And these are troubled times and let me say you also have fab fabulous voices and I wanNa make sure that in this are I like. What is this a six way skype call bunker recording situation? WanNa make sure that everyone knows. Who's to so if you could each introduce yourselves? Just our listeners can track WHO's talking. That would be amazing. Richard You WANNA go first. Hey everyone this is Richard blaze and no one has ever said that. My voice sounds amazing and coming from you. That is high praise right. Hugh Hewitt Jason. Yes it's just a. He's just some guy named Jason the Gravitas of that name and that voice alone. You need not say anymore honestly. We're all really really happy to have you both and thank you so much for I think this is our first ever to guest situation on stuff that at once you now isn't that ranking this is yeah yeah this. This is pretty close. This is new for us to but you know we're in a time of new things and innovations one one thing we wanted to kick off. Today's conversation with is is the concept of celebrity right Many of us in the audience. We know you from your we. We made no you from your work in television. I and sometimes there may be people listening today. Who are you know? I like the way you have put it earlier. Matt who are who are even more familiar with your television work than they are with maybe the day-to-day food that you were creating how. How has your notoriety affected? Your work as chefs has helped as it hindered. Has It ever gotten weird? Yeah I'll jump in I guess Richard Blaze here. I mean one. Has It gotten weird? I mean to be honest guys. We're on a six way skype on a podcast right now. So yeah things can get weird. When you're a celebrity chef. I think it goes both ways. Right like the exposure certainly creates great. Opportunity it certainly helps putting people in restaurants at the same time it creates a tremendous amount of responsibility. Not that you can't live up to all the time to everyone so I think it's a not much of a curse but but but certainly there there's ups and downs to it. Yeah I mean. Celebrity is such a strange. I don't think any of us want to color so celebrities. I'm just a guy who cooks you know. Tv's occupied about me. No two percent of my working life Probably even less so it but like like writing a book it just gives you a bigger footprint to you know get to clients and find customers and have a following so it definitely helps in a business angle but it kind of the term kind of makes me cringe. That's that's understandable I. It's funny he. I actually knew about you outside of any of your TV work. Because I lived in Athens Georgia for many years and knew your wonderful restaurant five and ten and had many friends that worked for you and so I knew of you more from your grassroots kind of work and you really are known as being super hands on in not only you know cooking and designing menus and creating restaurant concept but also in culinary instruction I actually have seen you do a talk at the local farmers market in front of like you know twenty people. It's like a very grassroots thing that you do and I always really appreciated about you. And you're all about the diy kind of ethics of being a chef and all of these design principles so Just wanted to put that out there. A big big fan and have known you since. You're kind of doing that stuff in Athens and followed you from that part of my life been alone you and you want to say it. But he's obviously a celebrity chef because I can't book the farmers market. They're not to get to you guys My first job I ever had was in a private club in Atlanta. Called the driving club and it was working. You know in a kitchen there and I really thought this is what I wanted to do. And I know there are a lot of people out there listening who have aspirations of becoming a chef or getting into the industry in some way more so than you know just serving drinks or food how what were the pathways you guys took to achieve that in. Is there any advice you can give to someone? Who's looking to follow in your ways? I would definitely advise against not going into this business right now but there's no jobs there won't be any jobs it's going to be a lot worse but you know. I got into this business. Because I'm the black sheep of very academic family and fifteen started working in restaurants. Just it was the place where I felt at ease and Where it could succeed and it wasn't school and university for a while but dropped out but all throughout the time just been cooking and not show up when I was sixteen years old working a French restaurant and be have forty year. Old Chefs be happy. Those they're working with them. So it gives me a sense of inclusion and success and I realized that my strange Circuses personality and things like that somehow also allowed me to be a good leader and then mix that with empathy and honing in on technique of the years. And just reading. You know I think it just. It's also it's a business that is it's it's this endless fascination for me because I can learn about food and beverage and hospitality and design every day of my life and never get tired of it. There's so much to learn about food and so when you find an occupation that that really jazz you like that every day. It's exciting and right now. You know we've all changed jobs last month and a half two months so that's exciting to even in even in a crisis situation which it's amazing to me the similarities between running a restaurant which is very crisis and triage oriented anyhow and then true crisis response because there's a lot of affinities that chefs can bring to the table in that regard of to fix problems quickly. I think it's a really really great point. And I I've seen so many restaurants Here in Atlanta half to pivot very quickly to this whole very carefully thought out to go model even find dining restaurants as a brand new Russian right around the corner from me a little bear. That just opened right before all this stuff hit. And they have exclusively pivoted to curbside delivery and they do a new menu every week. And you know you can call in and make your order that morning and you can pick it up that night. And it's like you know it's like seventy five bucks but it's like a spread for your family and it's something very special and it's been really cool to see them succeed and obviously they're doing it with more of a skeleton crew than they would. Have you know as a full service restaurant? They were booked out months in advance. It's a really popular spot that kind of innovation is really inherent in the scrappy. -Ness of being a chef. I mean they call them like brigades right like in the French tradition. Because it's like you're at war in a certain way and you have a leader and you have people that you have to delegate to the whole situation is very regimented in that way. Richard. Do you have. Can you speak to that a little bit of some of your experiences to that kind of you know that that attitude that can do attitude that really leads people in the culinary world to be able to like make snap decisions and really kind of you know just come through in times of stress? Yeah I mean I love I actually I mean I I'm going to borrow Hugh said there for the future because I mean being every every night of service of a restaurant. There's some sort of drama or problem that has to be served. I mean almost every other guests or other table has some sort of pivoting moment or a situation that has to be fixed or or solved and I think that again. The hospitality industry is sort of built for this and using the word hospitality. They're like the old sort of adage that the customer is always right. You know has really is the backbone of being able to consistently have to pivot every seemingly couple minutes to make sure that everyone is happy so I think that that's ingrained in all of us and I think that's the other side for me if I if I look at my personal story you know. Why did I fall in love with cooking and being a chef it was because it was one place where I could make someone happy right away? I could see it on their face I could. I could see it in their smile and I got that personal gratification of it and know quite honestly now we have the ability to turn those tables away and make people truly happy in moments when they really really need it. Like some curbside pickup. Or whatever it is you know. That's that's well said. They think we're hitting on an issue. That's very close to everybody's mind right now. You know as as we're readjusting as as we're adapting improvising. One thing that you both you both hit on that really perks by years up is you. You both noted like one hundred percent like something always happens every every service. There's always going to be something and that's kind of a point that we we opened with when we said you know somebody might go into a restaurant and they might sit down and to them. It seems like this is a super easy. This is like a a lazy to bride down a delicious river. You know what I mean and have no idea of what's going on behind the kitchen doors so like with this with this in mind. Are there things that that you guys? At chefs? As professionals wish the average restaurant patron was more aware of like what? What kind of a for lack of a better word? What kind of kitchen secrets do? Do you wish that more diners new. Well I WanNa let answer this but I want to just follow up and thank you for the inspiration. Because definitely the Willy. Wonka chocolate river to bride will now be created at some point in one of my restaurants. Oh seems terrifying to me. Are you going to have the soundtrack we have to? I'd say pure imagination is the song but I don't want you guys to have to pay for it. Thanks Paul Look into that yeah. There's a lot that goes on behind the scenes. I think it's I think the number of people that it takes to really ensure good full service is much more than people think behind the scenes is usually more people than people think and the amount of work that goes into it is is more People always have an assumption. That restaurant tours in successful chefs are Are Rolling in it and We're we're not. It's a very very low margin business and as only gotten lower and you know it's a challenging business but it's one that people do it because they love it and but it drives some people to bankruptcy and things like that so it's never easy in that way. I mean outside of that. I think that people generally understand what what people really do need to understand. Though about restaurants is their satisfaction with the restaurant is really past a certain point. It's really all in the consumer So if you're a customer you go into a restaurant in your in a crappy mood in your with your mother in law and a four year old. The chances of me making abundantly happy in a relatively fine dining restaurant or difficult you you're stacking the odds against me so it's not my job. I can do my job well. But the customer's always gotTA play to. Richard brought up the customer's always right and I actually. I never I don't really ascribe to that anymore. The customer's always right when they treat us with respect and we counter with professionalism empathy and understanding and we provide good product and we do a good job and it's efficient and timely apart from that if the customer has a complaint about that you know if so we you know so I guess I'm just saying it's the customers got some responsibility in this relationship to share. The customer is always right and so they're clearly absolutely wrong right. Hey we're gonNA pause for just a moment here and check out a word from our sponsor but we'll be right back it's basic trip. People meet each other. It's why.

How COVID-19 Is Taking Us Back to the Core of Training and Human Movement

"Jeremy. Good to talk to you man. I feel like we talk about youth sports a lot and what would happen. I think about what happened if there was a big just atomic bomb so to speak dropped on the youth sports industry and it had to kind of restart from the ashes and on some level. Maybe were were there at least for the time being. But what do you think about that stuff with how kids are? What's what's what's happening in the level of kids in play right now with all that. Yeah well I think that you're stuck. You're stuck at home. You're stuck in your neighborhood and even are not even allowed you know. The kids are excited to be at a school right. You can't go anywhere you can't go to anyone's house you can't go on you know go play with any kids are not a close anyways so as we were saying before it's like. I think the one of the things that kids are doing a lot of that. I've seen it might have been doing it as ride bikes. You know because you typically away from each other. You're not too close not jumping wrestling like that. So I think that's one those things that You know we've talked about this before two things. The kids used to do that. Don't do anymore and this is one of a ride. Bikes is sort of like brought back from the ashes. Which is which is nice to see any other thing like we've been. We've been playing a lot of wiffle ball stick ball you know any of those games. We took the dog out the other day. I had up by one of my sons aluminum bat and I had aluminum bat. And we're GONNA tennis ball back and forth down the down the street to each other while the dog ran in the middle. You know what I mean. That's typically. He's at baseball practice or or or basketball practice. We even die. I don't know if you see my video but I we moved the We have a trampoline at our house and we moved the basketball hoop over above the trampoline. So that gets throwdown dunks and and play different games inside the inside trampoline which is pretty awesome too. So I know someone's going to get their hands header with gotten these days but still I'm worth I'll take that chance. Yeah they're gonNA be one of those youtube videos were like they're they're gets caught at their hanging upside down when I went out Saturday night my youngest son see seventy was like just hanging on the red after a dunk thinking these lebrons so you know it's keeping them busy and to keep it a move in and that's we need right now for sure. Yeah and it's going back at. Ci taking kids out of organized sports for the time being going back to the the fundamentals of everything the thing they probably should be doing more of right now anyways then I I like CR- with riding bikes to it. Just makes me think about all the all the creativity that comes out when kids ride bikes to you know you're coming. You're find different ways to go off curbs and and you know get around and then there's you know even though it's a bike and that's not necessarily running on the ground there's still. There's so many things that are happening. That are really exciting. Yeah Yeah for sure. There's a lot of like you know those those those little skills that you don't even think about like dynamic balance and and you know being able to like lateral balance. That's one of those ones right like side like you get you get good even like when you try to accelerate your like believing that bike like side to side while you're driving your feet it's route. I always loved how that looks when you see like Bmx guys racing stuff. So in of course the first thing my kids one of my kids did is the ramp who is that. They took their bike out. So everyone's riding down a little hill in China hit the ramp and jumping off the ramp and obviously someone falls right. Got To get up and scrape it off and stuff like that so but it's Yeah I feel like silver lining. I guess some of the things that are happening because of what's happening in the world where we're having to go back to things that that we did when we were kids you know so. It's it's exciting for I. Guess but I'm still not easy like my kids. Still my kids still have chromebooks and then they still WanNa go on there and and spend a Lotta time doing that. Stuff for playing. Ps four and all that but but You know that's one of those things where we have to deal with that to work around it yet. Yeah no I hear you. It's definitely a little bit of a balanced specially this age. But I I'd seen someone else posts out on social media. They said both for the first time in forever whatnot. I've seen Esau kids playing like in the neighborhood or something like that and I mean people like even just so many people who walk through my neighborhood as well you know what I mean just that I don't normally see just out for walks and trying to get outside Nocco stir-crazy inside their house so there was like two ladies walking around on Friday night at. They both had glasses of wine. Just walk into the streets hysterical hub. Jerry you had posted something about and I'm not too familiar with Something I I. I'm assuming someone had a more formal like he's pushups or like. Get your sweat on for kids. Type training thing you posted and versus as we've been talking about just kids playing and doing doing stuff right and so tell me a little bit about that in verse so that have been tallied versus some of the year. What your kids are doing. I think you ought to fund story to about your son had to run up the stairs and touch the various like furniture in a room and come back or so. Tell me about a little contrast between that type of mentality and then what you're doing so I think that it's not. I'm not trying to blame anyone but I think like you know. Probably some parents are adults. Think like Oh you know I do. This type of this type of exercise is good for me. It's probably good for kids and while moving is great for kids the only mean they don't respond or really care or have like the maturity to understand what exercise really is you know what I mean. They only movement they know games. They know things that engages them. It makes them happy. You know what I mean so I think that I think that trying to force them to do. Exercise is because you do it in or I should say an adult. Does it You Know I. It's obviously yeah. Movement is great but there's better ways in it's better ways to engage kids in there's better ways to get them to love movement that rather than get him to force them to do exercise in. It's like everybody way program. It's gotta be like just like you got to the ideas like to be out of breast while if you want kids to be out of breath outside play game of tag or play a game of hide seek or you know. Play a game of like a chase. Where like you have to run down. Play pickle those games kids have fun. There's objective they can they? There's A. There's a goal you know you've got to be safe for. You're going to be out you know there's things like that that they totally grasp and understand And so that's why I think those type of activities are so much better than just can't get the try to exercise you know. Obviously there's a point where a kid probably can exercise like I have a son that is He'll be thirteen in in a month right and he the day he was. He didn't WanNa go outside. Blais you know play with younger kids so I was like. Why don't you go downstairs in? You know go get a workout in. So he went out and did like you know thirty seconds so lunches medicine lamps and you know he did some he doesn't care about swings and things like that so he's sort of getting making that transition whereas like my younger my youngest son you know. He'll he'll plan a trampoline. He'll run around. He'll ask me to make him an obstacle course. Who WANNA wrestle? Daughter judge gymnastics so I brought home some gymnastics mats and she does cartwheels and flips and things like that. You know what I mean. So I think that's where you got to try to find movements and exercise and activities. That kids enjoy. That will lead them to do more than you know. Up Thirty minutes sweat of a body

"Hundreds of thousands of people were buried alive when a major earthquake struck Haiti on January. Great twelve twenty ten as Catherine Puerto reported on how the poorest nation in the western hemisphere faced impossible odds she got to know a two year old girl who survived five to six days before being rescued this miracle child would become a symbol of hope and a focus of Catherine's work in Haiti and of her book. A girl girl named lovely Kathryn Porter. Welcome hi thanks for having me. Yeah now this must have been an amazing thing. You get the GIG. They send you down right after the earthquake in and new fly from comfortable Toronto into this nightmare refresh our memory about the earthquake that devastated Haiti in two thousand ten. The earthquake a was quite low on on the Richter scale comparatively was only seven point zero but in a place like Haiti where there are no building codes that are followed that people have built up without any engineers in place in many cases into valleys on health hops where they really should be building it just meant complete devastation. Huge Swath of the the city had crumbled and buried people alive and because so much of the country was centered in port-au-prince the capital most of the hospitals are there most of the universities in meant. Then look the mass braintrust of the country had also been buried alive. The rates of death were enormous. Ms and they're GONNA ask thirty five seconds but the toll it played on. That country was destroyed. Matic when I arrived at to see like what it looks like waterfalls all on every side of the road in terms of the rubble and bodies Lying in body bags on the side of the road people were walking hang around with toothpastes under their nose because the stench of death was so ripe It was like a you know a built-in little air freshener above their above with their lips. So that they could not smell it you talked about. The main hotel collapsed like an accordion. Yeah there was this huge hotel where in fact a lot of Canadians gins had just gotten out of their mini vans from the airport and settled into this hotel called the hotel Montana. It was kind of place where when people from the UN or for any kind of development group or a big company looking to invest. That's where you would go and meet. It had this beautiful view and pool looking over over the whole city and then down to the ocean and it just completely collapsed. More than one hundred people were killed there and The thing about this type of destruction as that makes you sort of reflect on how these we split second decisions of. I talked to someone who stepped into a store to buy something and she lost her arm and her leg now if she had decided to continue you walking and walk to another store five minutes down the road she might not have had that tragedy happened to her. You wrote about the homeless kids that were I mean the country and we had lots of homeless kids anyways but suddenly they've got no place to go. What what was your impression when you first were exploring the city's about all these kids that were just unattached? It was so overwhelming the damage there were these giant signs all over made it a bed sheet saying SOS we need help and there were lots of people who were separated from their families is still like. I said someone would have stepped outside. The House went down. They don't know if everyone in their family had died. Of course you worry mostly mostly about the kids and you know soon. After the earthquake there were a bunch of missionaries who were thinking they were saving some orphan kids and trying to take them across the border and in fact most of those kids had add family members and the thing about orphanages in Haiti is they're really poor boarding schools so many of the people in their their parents cannot afford to feed them so they send them mm to this orphanage and there's never really planned for them to be adopted so even before the earthquake like the level of poverty and malnutrition and illiteracy and kids with just heart heartbreaking. Then you add an earthquake on top of it and you go to all these makeshift clinics in the city where people are deriving from outside. They're coming from the Dominican Republic with duffle bags of medications looking to help and they set up these little clinics here and there on the side of the road and so sometimes kids were delivered to them with no idea of who you know who their parents were. What neighborhood they were from if the people delivering them were Haitian they could give the information but if the person who was taking the notes or even had paper to take notes was not Haitian and did not speak creole? Then there'd be no paper trail on these people So there was a real fear at the beginning that some of these kids would be preyed upon and there was already a system. That kids in Haiti are stolen kidnapped taken across sold into brothels into the Dominican Republic or sold basically basically into indentured labour and so there was just a huge concern at the beginning of. What would happen to these children? Catherine Porter's telling us how the people of Haiti survived following the devastating earthquake of twenty ten. Her journalism assignment brought her into the life of a two year. Old Girl whose survival in the rubble was nothing. Things short of a miracle book is called a girl named Catherine. This must have spent overwhelming in a lot of people have reported departed on Haiti and the poverty there. And what makes your reporting really intimate. Is the story of you meeting this amazing girl the Miracle Child. Can you tell us about lovely the main character in your book. A girl named lovely so lovely was too when I met her. She had been rescued from the rubble six days after the earthquake and delivered this little makeshift clinic. That was being run by some doctors. There's with meds on demand and some people with a Dominican civil defense and a whole bunch of other random people that fly into disasters to help some tom that are equipped with skills. That you would be helpful after earthquake and some that. Just come because they feel this need to to witness and offer hope and and so she was this little kid and She was too although to me. You know when I met her I had a three year old and a one year old at home that I had left and she has had the poison my three year old but she was a size of my one year old really small scrawny kid. Everyone told me that it was a miracle that she survived because really it is unheard of to last six days under the rubble without water. Particularly where food as a such a small size and they figured she was orphaned. A No one knew what happened to her parents. People were just glomming around her. The first time I met her I I was looking at her. To See signs of the trauma she'd been through and the Doctors Kris told me that she had malnutrition and dehydration and parasites. But there were no broken. Bones or lacerations or other signs signs that she had suffered through an earthquake except for when she arrived she was covered in dust and she was despondent crying for a a number of days so one of the the people who flew in from Montreal basically just hugged her and took care of her and held her for two days. A human rescue blanket hit and I realized the role. Those people play after disaster. You know everyone I think around. Her was flocking to her because she was kind of the symbol bowl of the country's fragility here. Was this little two year old kid. They thought she was orphaned. She lived through hell and what was going to happen to her but to me. There's something very hard about lovely Blais. She is a survivor. She's tough she's got us like an old lady soul. You know when she looks at you she looks right into you and she does not try and please. He's her admirers. She's not like my daughter who's always playing to the crowd. She doesn't really kind of indifferent to whether you like her or not and so I felt like she was symbol of of resilience more a different symbol of Haiti. Of just you know people who can make it through horror and get the other side because she was

The first on the third I think are the ones that we cherish above all by the third one. We definitely like this one. Fucking like debt on. And the first book is just because it's your first assuming it is just like kids the male child gets. No love the I do not the latest middle like are poor second book like we. So we had written the first book, and it was a shot in the dark because you were like we've never run a four. So everything we're doing so fucking risk. So that sold and we're like, okay, cool. Like, we need to change that somehow we need fresh. So we took some risks was the second one and who's themed who is hosting book. And we were like, you know, those are kind of hit or miss so it being like a party book in sort of us trying to keep our style fresh. And then by like Michelle said that book we fucking this not that the second book is any good. But there's no excellent recipes, and their the jokes have something to be desired, and we we were sleepy. We're in a tight deadline for the second book. But. So so good was your most recent cookbook. Yes, I'll say are you working on another one, especially the last? We are working on it. We're working right now actually, very hard on shopping a book that I mean, who's you're right. Well, this one is to be determined to publishers. We have.

It was like a half is just like I feel like maybe to save your life one day, you might have to just run thirteen miles fast. And like I feel like that's a good thing that just having your back pocket. The skill drafts are chasing happening. Those long us next. They could reach. Could be on a food competition show, and it could be like your ingredients or thirteen miles away. I won't be the first one to the produce section. I would've said protein section if you like twenty six miles knowing these non run twenty thousand miles, you know, but I will say it's a moment of outside of like, I mean, like birth of our kids in like those sort of it's like moment that just like is unlike any other that's cheap, and you can eat whatever you want that night.

"Wu. Blais if you're a long-time listener of this program, you know, that Michael boo play is. A friend of the program and somebody that I have known I think since before he was really really famous. This comes from the Daily, Mail dot CO dot UK. I'm not sure that this. I'm not sure that Michael wasn't joking and part of this just give you the highlights. Michael Boublil is officially retired from music following his sons, no following his son. Noah's cancer battle the singer forty-three explained the heartache he endured following his sons cancer diagnosis as at just three years old has changed his perception of life, and he is done now with fame with a new album out title love on the way, he explained that. This is time for him to step away from music wanting to leave it at the very top. After making the perfect record. Michael revealed his decision to quit the industry in what he claimed to be his last interview, my whole being has changed since my son got cancer. He said Michael Boublil says he was embarrassed to realize how egotistical he had become as he nursed his boy Nate Noah back to health. But now he's got his Mojo back. The Canadian singer has won four Grammy sold seventy five million records. Earning him thirty five million dollars a year. He has been married to a stunning Argentina and model and actress for seven years the couple lived the life of luxury in the three with her three children, Noah five Elias to and daughter video amber, Betty, who is eleven weeks old yet all of this seemed meaningless when no was diagnosed with liver cancer two years ago, and the devastated couple immediately announced that they were putting their careers on hold for the care of their son Noah has been declared now cancer free. Michael Blais is very emotional is Brown eyes. Well, up the mere mention of the seaward cancer. There's too many see words now, and it is clear he is living in the shadow of what he describes his two years of hell, you just wanna die. He said, I don't I don't even know how I was breathing. My my wife was the same. And even though I was a stronger of the two of us. I wasn't strong. My wife was I'm sorry. I can't make it to the end of the sentence. Let's just say we find out who we are with these things going through this with. No, I didn't I didn't question who I was. I just questioned everything else. Why are we here is this all there is because if this is all there is there has to be something bigger? He says that one way got through was to pretend he was in Roberto Roberto Benitez character from life is beautiful. I don't know if that was a choice he said, but that's who I became for instance. I never called it the hospital, I called it the fun hotel. He said every day, I got extra bed sheets, and I would build a tent for Noah, I just made the best of it. It's such a difficult exercise. It hurts me and it hurts to talk about Noah because it's not my story to tell. It's his, but my whole life has changed my perception of life. I don't even know if I could get through this conversation without crying, and I never lost control of my emotions before in public. I actually thought I'd never come back to the music business. I never fell out of love with music. I just needed to put it aside. What was hard was going to the store and buying hotdogs and toilet paper and going to the gas station going for a walk by the sea to clear my head. Everyone recognizes me and says, how's your son? You think you're close to getting over it and you're sucked right back into it. But at the same time, I was given back my faith in humanity. He said the illness made him realize he needed to make a change in his life. I spent a good time a good deal of time with people who aren't so lucky. This terrible news came I realized I wasn't really having fun in the music business. I had lost the joy. And at some point just before the Brits. I was starting to lose the plot. I'd become desperate to hold onto something. I thought I might be losing. And I thought I had to do something special to keep it. I started doing things out of my comfort zone. Like, presenting the truth. Is it had been a while since I had been having fun. It started. The I started to worry about ticket sales for my tours. What the critics said what the perception of might me might be. I felt like I was living with this over my face and near and the reality. I was seeing was all blurred by it. I decided I never wanted to read my name in print again never read a review, and I never have. I decided I'd never used social media again. And I never have. But the diagnosis made me realize how stupid I had been to worry about all of these unimportant things. I was embarrassed by my ego. I was embarrassed at allowed this insecurity. I realize it for many years. I couldn't believe I was on the same stage as my heroes. I couldn't believe I was looking across somebody like Paul McCartney and saying things like it's hard to get here. But my God, it's harder to stay here. Then I woke up and thought after ten years of trying to get here and five years of being scared that it would go away. I think I can enjoy it. After his son's illness. He says I just don't have the stomach for it anymore. The celebrity narcissism it started to I started to crumble, but then I started to wonder why wanted to do it in the first place. I had forgotten that it was all about Seoul's connecting because I'd become so anxious. There were people in my business life saying if you hadn't done this or that if you've ridden a better song tickets white selling quicker. I started to take all of that on board. And no one wanted to take any responsibility. It's just so much easier for people to pass the buck to me because I was since insecure enough already I would digested and say, it's my fault. I'm rubbish. It affected me. And I started to think it's all going to go. I'm gonna lose everything. It is. Fascinating to read these things from him. Because what I've always felt about my boo Blais was he was just having fun. He was just living a dream. And I wondered and I never spotted it in him. I just wondered. If it was ever gonna get old to him. Because what makes him I think the best performer I've ever seen on stage. His that joy. He just has a joy of performance. And it is it is so infectious. Yeah. He loves it. I mean, you can tell when you see them live, you can tell he just absolutely loves doing it. Or at least did at one point. But they're starting to talk about. I mean, there's conflicting reports that he's actually thinking about stopping it completely. He says I was learning with passion that I was afraid I'd become a mere poor photo copy of my heroes. But when I come back from this terrible time, I realized I'm not a mere photocopy. I've learned everything I can from them taken it found my own soul. My own voice, my own style. And now, no critic can take that away it needed clarifying. Now. I'm just seeing the music I love, maybe when you let go that's when he comes back to you. It's a lot like love he is. He he I think he's joking about his because he says I missed the guy's in my band. So when my wife had to go back to Argentina, I said to the guys come on over to the house. Let's have a drink or some pizza place some video games and jam they came over and we partied. And I said, let's play some music, and I thought, wow, this is fun. It was then that I realized I. I missed making music. I didn't even know I missed it that was about a year ago. So why would he possibly be saying that he is? Now, it seems like it might be one of those situations where the internet has taken someone is sarcastic comment and turn it into reality is spokes people are coming out today and saying that he's not actually going to retire because he's in the middle of a tour and a book album released and all that other stuff. So here's what he's here's what he says exactly to the reporter. He pauses. There are three reasons I wanted to do this album one because I felt a debt of gratitude deeper than I can explain to the millions of people all over the world who prayed for us and showed us compassion that gave me faith in humanity to because I love music, and I feel I can continue the legacy of my idols and three because if the world was ending not just my own personal hell, but watching the political turmoil in America and watching Europe break-up, there's never a better time for music, then he suddenly stops. This is my last interview, he says, quite solemnly. I'm retiring from the business made the perfect record. And now, I can leave at the very top end, quote somehow, though, the writer says, I don't think he really means it that's unbelievable because you know, that it was put all over the media as if he was retiring will he said, it was his last interview. He's got other interviews scheduled. He's had a whole press tour for the album is just silly. And most important thing though, is is looking at that and saying that is really the type of thing that that changes your perspective completely right? You go through something like that. And you stop, and you examine all the nonsensical idiocy that you participated in every day. And you can reprioritize you don't want to have to go through that to do it. But sometimes it's the only thing that makes you kind of reprioritize the things you're doing in your life. And he seems to have I mean, he he is making thirty five million dollars a year if he's out there touring and stuff, and he's able to walk away from that. Because he just wants to spend time with his son. How many times did we hear those excuses? According to spend more time with my family that was completely real with this guy. Yeah, it's nice to see somebody who actually nice to see that. He he got through it and has made it into a good thing. You know, I have I have probably more respect for Michael boob way than any other professional that I ever met in the entertainment industry because he has found a way to keep his feet on the ground. And he was unafraid. I mean when everybody when every when it was very popular. Or to hate me. He didn't mean popular to hate you. I know, but he, but he and he was never taking a stand for me. He just wouldn't. He just didn't understand. He's like, look, I'm not in politics. I'm canadian. Why do I care of it? And then you get a fight at a hockey game. Yeah. He said the guy turned around and said, oh good believe you look Glenn Beck. And he's like, I'm Canadian. I don't vote. What what does it matter? What does it matter to you? And the guy threw a punch, and he said I threw punches back. And he said, I gotta I gotta do a hockey fight. Got do a hockey fight. I am so happy to hear that his family is. Is doing better and his son has made this miraculous turn and Michael boob. La. You've given enough. If you wanna give more we will, certainly take it. But do what's right for you? Do what's right for you? And for your family. And your real fans will be thrilled. No matter what you.

"It's recess at what world wind this week has been, and I don't want to alarm you, but it's only Tuesday speaking of which the work week is too long. Why isn't it for days of business and three days of brunch? As would be fair, it's time for the news or as I like to call it your recess from the real news here we go today in news that is great, Meghan Markle and Meghan. Markle's husband, Prince, Harry, I haven't baby. I'm very excited for them. And I know this baby will be very, very cute. But just in case, maybe riana and Archie from Riverdale should have a baby to just so recovered also because Cardi b. chose to name her baby culture. The very, very good name. Cardi baby is still up for grabs. So somebody take advantage of that. Do you wanna party with Ilan musk me neither. But here's the thing. Elon Musk has his own brand of tequila called tesla Keila as in tesla Keila for when you want to get drunk and talk about space and how smart you are and where did everybody go? The k pop group b. t. s. of idle. The song's lash music video of the summer is making a movie. The movie is called burn the stage colon, the movie, and it comes out November fifteenth to screaming. Crowds of me. I'm gonna see it k- pop his gripped me and it won't let go. It feels like eating cotton candy with my eyeballs while various genres of music play all at once and I love it for some reason, Michael boo, Blais who is in many ways. The opposite of k. pop is retiring from using altogether. All Michael boob way don't go when you sing. It's like a roomba made entirely of velvet is rolling through my brain, and there's no way to replicate that no way that is safe. At least as you may remember Willem Dafoe is playing Vincent Van Gogh in a movie because their names rhyme. That's okay. Testing works right. The thing is willing to fo- is sixty three and Van Gogh was only thirty seven when he died. But according to Willem that's no big deal. He said quote, I was surprised that he was only thirty seven years old and then I looked and did some research on what the average age of mortality was in France in the late nineteenth century forty years old. Now it's seventy years old. So without being too cute about it, today's seventy was yesteryears forty and quote, you heard it here folks from Willem Dafoe seventy is the new forty eighty is the new fifty and by nineteenth century French standards. I am a twelve month old baby who for some reason has student loans. All I can think about today is brunch who wants to go get pumpkin spice. Pancakes with me. I'm raising my own hand because that's called self care. Take care guys. I've alluvia Harewood at if you enjoy recess, keep it going by becoming a patron at patriot dot com. I will catch you next time and until then recess journed.

"Radio, brushing your teeth, catching up on the day. Yeah, right. So I feel like I can't have the screen over there and kind of a kind of want to have it in the kitchen because that's a place where there's no, there's no screen that's visible from there. And that will hopefully encourage me to watch stories. We call them daytime, dramas. I understand the work that goes the, no, there's there's a certain amount of dishwashing that could be escalated in terms of frequency there. I will say that there have been times where I've left bad enough. I left dishes in the sink. There are times where I'd have to take the tub out of the sink and put it in the cabinet underneath the sink to make more room in the sink for something that really needed to be cleaned in cleaned right away. Right. I try to. I try to stop before it gets to that stage, but I feel as though to have an entertainment unit of some sort would be very, very helpful there, Saul, I also use it. This is extremely cheesy, but when my husband travels for business, we put it on do, oh, and that's how we like talk, you know, and it's a lot easier. I mean, why don't you just use a laptop flow? Yes, I could use a laptop or you know, but the camera on the Chromebook. Is actually pretty Terry Blais it's not. It is not even like. What's it called? The MAC. It's not even eyesight worthy. So is the potato ham you're saying? Yeah, where exactly whereas the camera on the Novus marches plays actually pretty darn good. And then when I have my cats that are over here, I blind everything. I shut everything off. So it's it's a case of my, my maybe jumping the gun and knowing that I want this that I can use it some place, but not knowing exactly where I think the solution that I'm gonna I'm hitting upon is during the black Friday sale. I'm going when the regular Google homes go down to ninety nine bucks. I'm going to buy another one of those which I can then like basically replace one that replaced the thing in the living room, which is now the smart display with Google home, and then take the smart displaying, put that in the kitchen, and then take the other smart speaker. I've gotten the kitchen for listening to music and put the bathroom, which is the only place where I have an Amazon record, scratch, Richard, scratch, sound effects. Just imagine that's what happened. You. Oh, currently can't have the smartest player be a part of a home group. So if you're hoping to have like home wide music, it doesn't work with a smart display just yet they'll be fine that slow of just gonna be just because I was very disappointed by that and it. It made the configurations of the home in my house. I had to change it around to make sure that every room has music because that's the whole point of the home group. I'll tell you one thing that isn't working in displaying the hell out of me. It is the it is the only Nongo made Google assistant of ice in the house, and apparently the only one that does not support continued conversation yet. So I keep saying I'm saying, okay, Lenovo smart speaker, turn off all the lights. Okay. And turn on the lights in the bedroom. Silence. You didn't say the magic word fine. So I'm waiting that that update is going to be very, very, because it's it's, it's like when everybody in your office speaks English, but one of them things that any form of carbonated sweetened beverages called a coke and you'll remember to, oh, I'm speaking to darla. I have to make sure. I don't say I bought. There's cokes in the fridge. Go on take one if you want because he's gonna ask what kind of Mexican coq au they make orange soda and Mexico. They mice. I don't know real sugar. It's still shis. So. Before we should probably go to commercial, but let last thing the the October ninth, Google vent in New York City, which I cannot go to because it's happening exactly at the same day and time as we record MAC break..
