Was Donald Trump a 'Wrench in the Gears' for a Rising China?
"How much was mild boss. President trump is. The brits say a spanner in the works. How much was he. A range in the gears for rising china and for the establishment that wants to have their palms greased by china's money. Oh he was such such an impediment to how the establishment seeks to use the chinese communist. Party i mean. I i love talking about a lot of the times. It's too in the weeds. So people kind of tune out like oh about board chinese groups and china's college party leaked and time soon. Get into the weeds. But i mean the executive orders that came out of that administration in terms of targeting these specific influence groups like i said the china united states exchange foundation. The china people's association for friendship and foreign contact and the other one's sounds so soviet so so people forget you know what the actual name for the warsaw pact was. It wasn't the war so packed. It was the warsaw pact. For friendship and cooperation. People forget that dominating your neighbors taking control of friendship and cooperation china's just playing the same strategy. Yeah they love those terms. There's another one that the chinese association for international friendly contact so they love friendship Those very very one way. Street must your member of america's permanent political class but all of these groups which you know really take an elaborate understanding of the way that the chinese communist party's influence efforts were they were all targeted in one way or another by executive orders from the trump administration to stop people from actually participating and colluding with them right so you know the administration that was smeared as the ford collusion administration was actually stopping foreign collusion. And they were the most successful that i've ever seen in recent history of an administration doing

Airways boeing seventy seven. Excuse me boeing seven seven seven That is the first passenger flight to depart from the main airport in afghanistan kabul airport since. Us troops withdrew from afghanistan last month. The scene at kabul airport today was markedly different from what we saw. Just weeks ago Instead of us marines we had taliban fighters patrolling runways. The talibans white flags or surrounding the airport on those flagpoles the fact that. Us forces are in control. There and the taliban clearly are today. One hundred and thirteen people including americans canadians brits germans ukrainians all left on that cutter airways boeing seven. Seven flight flew out of kabul and landed in doha in cutter. More flights out flights out again have started. Maybe not just this one may be more to come in a statement today. Secretary of state anthony blinken said that today's flight quote was the result of the departments regular close engagement with our regional partners particularly with the cutlery authorities and taliban officials said today that another flight is expected to take off tomorrow that the taliban is expecting to let it go for its part. The biden news station says it won't divulge details about any upcoming flights due to what they called the ongoing terrorist threat to such operations. Clearly it is still a very fluid situation there. But by all appearances the evacuation flights from kabul appear to be back on as of today with the likelihood that more flights will continue at least tomorrow and maybe beyond that and that is something

Nbc's raff sanchez. Was there. This is it. After a perilous journey that started in kabul through an airport controlled by the taliban. These passengers are coming down the steps here in doha. Finally to safety and security but for those so desperate in the last two weeks overland has been the only way out we headed up pakistan's khyber pass to the torkham border-crossing with afghanistan. This new taliban guard we spoke with says pakistan isn't letting all these people through there are people waiting who can't get over. Okay okay so the pakistani military's having moved back but sisters mersal and manisha mayday if you had stayed under taliban rule what would that have been like the big problem school. Not as they're headed to ottawa soon to be canada's newest refugees now if international flights really are starting back again that's potentially very good news for the tens of thousands of vulnerable afghans left behind.
British TV Watchers Were Very Confused About American Ads.
"So a few months ago. A bunch of people in england tuned into some good ole live complete with commercials. Us tv obviously. It was the royal infused. I'm prince harry and meghan petra. Diaz is in south hampshire england. Where the meghan markle. Prince harry oprah interview was going to air the day after it aired in the us. So petra and a bunch of other brits tuned into us tv so that they could get all the royal t in real time. Wait hold wait a minute. Your family cut you off. I hall the first quarter of twenty twenty and aside from all the royal palace bombshells. There was this one thing that really stood out to brits about. us television the commercials. They were not like commercials in england. Very very pushy. Very chelsea by this do it now. Whereas it's like they tend to be a bit of jokey. Petro remember seeing an ad for some kind of medicine and she was like Okay that's a little odd but then there was another one is an element that would have been really serious so either like chronic something paying or whatever it was it was a very in depth commercial about it. And i. This is dramatic. Yeah all over twitter during his oprah interview. British people are saying the same thing. What is the deal with all of these medicine ads in the us. Because england doesn't allow commercials for prescription drugs and it never even crossed my mind. That medicine was say like was promoted. I didn't it. Did not even cross my mind that that was the thing brits were like you lot get bombarded like this daily and american medical adverts are some real dystopia and like how is the cream for your joints going to give you cancer. These are all real tweaks. Yeah breads had a lot of fun with the side effects. Petro is tweeting to and she couldn't tell who the ads were. Even for really so i didn't understand. The advocates ought to sow the medicine to the public. And somebody replies to the tweet saying it's not to sell sell it so that you go to your doctor and convince them to give that to you. Which is the strangest strangest thing. I could think called. One of the tweets was like hold on. Hold on hold on. You are supposed to go to your doctor and tell them what you need like doing.

Today dot com. If you have an android phone you're you're in luck because there's a guest mode built in to hide those pop-ups if you wanna share what's on your screen. Although this moat isn't on the iphone there are ways that you can get around the awkward situation of a notification popping up that you didn't want to win a friend or somebody else's looking at your phone for a quick fix you can choose.

S6 E11 - This is what it's like living with someone with PTSD. . . - Full Episode
"All right you ready. I actually hit record this time here. We go so in the most recent episode of the podcast season six episode ten. I sat down with my wife patricia. I talked to her about the challenges. She has faced in dealing with multiple mental health diagnoses over the years and right after we published that episode. We received an excellent recommendation from a listener. Asking us to tackle the topic of what it's like living with someone with ptsd. And i think patricia. And i are uniquely suited to tackle this since both of us. Have this diagnosis in in. Its for completely different reasons. This episode is going to be an unfiltered. Look at what. It's like to live with someone with post traumatic stress disorder and by way of introduction. This is the we served now. What podcast where. I do my best to answer the questions. Veterans and their families are already asking so you can make your post military life. Your best life money erin perkins. I'm a. us army combat veteran daddy to two amazing kiddos host of this podcast. If you hadn't guessed. And i am joined today again by my beautiful bride patricia. Welcome back to the show thank you. I'm so glad to be here. Well good good so it's been a couple weeks right and last time we talked about the treatments. You're getting and things like that for depression. Talk to us a little bit before. We're gonna dive into the. Ptsd topic talked us a little bit. About how those are going those are going. I'm not going to be very honest. they're painful. I think Winning expecting almost a miracle. I mean you you let somebody shock your head for twenty minutes a day. You expect something but it's actually made my depression a little worse. They said that's normal. It can get worse before it gets better. So actually they're going to re map tomorrow and see if there's a different place. They need to put the magnet. But i think it's gonna go all right. Yeah we hope we hope and pray as well trained for this for that. This works in putting you through a lot of distress but like you said pain to try to to address the depression right. And so that's that's just one part of what can be a result of ptsd another city but the actually brit really brings up our our first thing to talk about is. Let's talk about ptsd a little bit. What it is. And how. I understand it. How do you understand. ptsd how. I understand it is. I mean we all know it stands for post traumatic stress disorder and that can be from your childhood from your teen years from adulthood. Something you went through something. You saw something you experienced. That was just traumatic for you. And i know that it can you know make you. Have you know nightmares it. Can you know how you can have memories of that trauma and then you avoid situations that you know make you think of that trauma and you know a lot of even soldiers you know. They get like hyper vigilant. You know because of how it makes them feel and it can call anxiety and depression as well. I think the hyper vigilance was one of the i. I realize that i that something was wrong right. I knew i had a lot of anger in. I was like i don't know why angry like i'm i'm not in the army anymore. I thought you the anger was just part of just being in the army. You're just mad something every day. And so i thought that it would go away and it didn't in fact he got worse and it. Was that hyper vigilance piece. I always felt. I still do. But i always felt ready. This constant state of readiness hyper vigilant. That's one of the behavioral parts because there's behavioral parts psychological mood in general sleep. And then you know it you can break them all down like you know behavioral is like you know you feel agitated or irritable or hof style or hyper vigilant like you were saying or you know you start doing self destructive things like you know. Drugs are becoming an alcoholic or or if he just completely isolate yourself. That's me raise my hand right there myself psychological as you know flashbacks which i don't have those fear that comes from nowhere severe anxiety failure to trust other people. Because you don't know what's going to happen the mood part of it. You know you lose interest or pleasure in doing stuff that you used to enjoy doing right or you feel like the severe guilt or you are incredibly lonely like you have tons of people around you. You have a family that loves you but you are so lonely and it messes with your sleep. It can cause you to sleep too much. Not enough to have horrific nightmares and a lot of people have detachment from other people and like intrusive thoughts that they just can't get rid of you know that you know. They go through their day and i guess to some other people they might look like legitimate list crazy but they just have these constant like thoughts and some people have to talk it out. You know there's so many parts to ptsd. yeah. I think that's one of the challenges with even realizing that you might have it right because there's so many parts to it. Depression anxiety intrusive thoughts avoiding situations. Not sleeping sleeping too much having horrific nightmares having too much emotion having no emotion at all. There's so many things and so what i was told. People especially veterans is if if something feels off. Don't try to figure out if you have. Ptsd anxiety or depression go to mental health right and talk to the professional about it and let them figure out whether you use the va or you go out to out to in the civilian sector. You go get it checked out. Because there's there's nothing that's not going to hurt you to go get it checked out right and that was a question that i was going to ask you. Is you know like when did you realize you had ptsd. I think it was what year wise was twenty seventeen. I got out and twenty. Fourteen of twenty seventeen anger progressively got worse. The hyper vigilance. And what. I say hyper vigilance. I i don't mean just like you know on edge all the time and i guess that was part of it but for me it was this feeling like i'm about to go into a fight like just ready like i mean you know kind of like almost kind of like a sprinter would be at the starting line. Okay here we go all right. I'm ready. i'm ready and it was like that all the time. That sounds exhausting. It is it really really is it took i say i want to say it took a long time to get past that but truth is i'm up past that no the pd. Has these not a broken limb. You know you can't cast on it and wait six weeks and go back and get the cast off and you're good to go. No i mean people can't get past it it's it. There are stories of people who you know they had. Ptsd and to you know after a few months few years depending on situation you can't get past. It depends on the person. I think it's post traumatic growth right where you know after your trauma you become a stronger person. A bigger percent better person. I don't know if i would. I would say that people ever get over their trauma. They just they build one right in that instead of letting the letting it crush them they use it to to fuel becoming a better person in the end and the thing is it's not always a choice. I don't think this is my opinion right. I don't think it's always a choice whether you get to say like oh. I'm past the worst part of my ptsd. And i'm only headed for post traumatic growth now. I don't even think i've heard that term post traumatic growth. So i don't know. If i would be i don't know if my opinion i mean i hope that's a real thing Veteran futterman talk to me. One time so you're doing it basically you're doing to post traumatic growth thing like you like you know you start a company like you've got a great career you've got a great family you know you've got a beautiful home cars dog you've got all this stuff going for you you're doing life right you're in your a great church like you're doing all these things right and hosting this podcast you're getting so much stuff done okay and i'm like okay cool why don't it feel better yeah really i'm like okay. We'll see if this post traumatic growth. I number one. i'm happy i'm growing. I'm happy growing getting better. getting smarter. Faster stronger whatever it is. I'm happy about that part but like it is this like is post traumatic growth a destination or is it just this constantly journey. Yeah i think it's a journey in. It reminds me of what we heard in church on sunday about walking wounded. And that's what that means is like. Es your wounded mentally sometimes physically but you know ptsd is a mental disorder and your your wounded mentally but you continue to walk. Wounded is when you stop that. There's no growth And so the post traumatic growth is continuing to walk. Even though you're wounded i love. Obviously you we're in the same service. Same church service right and we were both talking about how great it was so we can ask each other. This question okay. What's it like living with me especially within. What's it like living with me. Especially when i'm experiencing some sort of triggering episode so you mentioned 2017 when you first realized that you had p. Tst then it was. You're angry and you know we tried to give you a little bit of space and like you know. Let you breathe calm down. But i think i think you have grown because now you take that space for yourself. You're like i'm going to go run or i'm going to take the dog and we're going to go hike for a few hours. I think that you know living with you. I've able to watch you grow. And and learn how coping mechanisms coping skills. And i think with. Ptsd you have to learn. Those people might not always understand them like. I'm not hiking ninety degree weather with a dog. It's not happening but three you that works that would trigger trigger something not. Ptsd that would trigger anger. It has nothing to do with. Ptsd you you. You've joined small groups that you guys run and you know for exercise in general for you just really helps you a lot of that. Is you know twenty seventeen. We had just moved to alabama and things weren't going the way we wanted them to and life was just really stressful right. And you hadn't even been diagnosed yet. sure sure. So you've you've grown okay. So i don't even ask this question. What do you like living with me. It's amazing it's amazing. I love it. Let next question experiencing some sort of triggering episode. Well i've told you this before but as a man as a husband i feel. It's my duty my job to keep you happy. You know and so a lot of times i think. Ptsd manifests itself in your life as overwhelming depression and crippling anxiety right. And there's not a single thing i can do about it so for me. It's not that living with you is better or worse. Y you know with a triggering episode. It's that my hands are tied right. And so i think it's super frustrating. Because i'm like. I see a problem my wife is in. It's not just unhappy. You know it's like she. Has this a legitimate mental diagnosis. A mental condition that. I can't do anything to fix Frankly doctors can't do anything to fix every single part of that right and that conversation we've had many times because you're like i just want to fix it and i'm like doctors i have and they can't fix it. Release yourself up that burden. You can't fix it and that is so tough as a man who says you know what i'm here to lead my family my wife and my kids and you know kind of you know take charge and we're going to go tackle life together and that is so appreciated but sometimes you just got. It's true it's true like it's nothing you can do. Well that's not true. Okay that's not true space. Give me space. You know like like you did tonight. I had that treatment today and it made me sick today. I was actually really upset stomach today. And i'm just chilling in the bedroom lennon bed phone and you just made dinner that i did that helped i did. I logged off my computer at work and went and made dinner. It was amazing. I don't know if the dinner was amazing. But it's good good good so coming up after the break tricia and i are going to ask each other one more question. We're going to ask this question. Is there anything good about living with someone who has. Ptsd and we're gonna share several takeaways with you. Stay with us. Many americans today don't realize the stress and anxiety they feel is most likely because of their finances according to bankrate.com more than six out of ten people couldn't cover a one thousand dollar emergency seven out of ten. Don't budget regularly. An eight out of ten are living paycheck to paycheck to these describe you. Are you ready to live like others.

You can also schedule your free consultation with marco once again that's live like others can't dot com get on the path to your dream life today all right and we are back and as promised. We're going to talk about ptsd or would keep talking about ptsd right but the question that we have for each other. Do you wanna ask it. I want me to go go ahead. Is there anything good about living with someone who has ptsd. I wrote this question. I still think it's a tough question you know i would not wish. Ptsd on anyone true. I'll start with that so with that in mind. What the good that has come out of it. It helps me to understand other people abso win. I hear about a veteran struggling with. Ptsd or a a veteran's family member or or family member or friend who is struggling with ptsd. I'm like i get it. I know how you feel. I completely understand and so for me. It's if there's anything good. It's that i can better relate to people who are going through the same frustration and anguish and honestly emotional pain when they see their loved one going through this right and i know not everyone copes. Well that's true and so this question might be difficult for some other. Some people listening you know like they're their loved when ptsd is raging alcoholic. Who's angry all the time. In what would you tell that person. That's an even to that. That in itself is even tougher. I think what. I would be telling that person is i. Can't i cannot tell you what you should be experiencing if you're living with someone with ptsd and you're like you know my spouses a raging alcoholic as a result of pd. St how do i find good in that. I can't tell you what good you should find. I i'm in no place to tell you that the only thing i can do is point you to the one that is jesus christ the principe who can give you peace in the situation and and the bible even says you know piece that passes all understanding basically piece. That doesn't make sense. So i can't tell you. This is what you should be feeling. This is what you should be experiencing. But i can recommend you to eat a formula so to speak of how to live better in that situation right and and i would add onto that to a more. You know just. I don't know. Do we say worldly. Come that. Try to under try to understand. Don't don't try to fix but like research. See how you can help your one with ptsd. Because i think not. Understanding is a part of the problem right for years i had. Ptsd and you did not. You didn't understand it in in mind would manifest in depression anxiety in the soldier new said just go exercise pushups drink water burpee strength water and i'm like you so don't get it and it was true i didn't you act totally asked you to research it to better understand it and you you did better understand it but now that you have experienced for yourself it's completely different really it. It really really is just just so different when you experience it for yourself. So i'll ask you the same question. Is there anything good about living with someone who has ptsd. I think it teaches you. How similar to what you said compassion. I mean i've always had a big heart. And i think it's because it's been broken a lot and you don't hurt anybody else because you know what that feels like you know you have more compassion. Because you know what it's like to fill abandoned or left out or or or thrown away so you're not gonna do that to anybody because if you're not a monster you're not gonna do that because you know what that feels like me and so i have probably too much compassion. My heart's honestly probably isn't too big for people. There are worse things that people not for pets. But that's a whole different. That's a big for people. Pets you can have one. That's my ocd. Am sorry that's okay. But yeah i would say me. It's compassionate and i've seen more compassionate you as well 'cause i was saying earlier when you didn't understand it you just dislike. Oh burpee and water. But now you're like. Do you want to go take a nap. You need to lay down like there's way more compassion than there was before so if if anything good can come out of such a horrific diagnosis like ptsd. I mean if you can just you know. Be patient and be kind. You can learn compassion. Sure yeah that's a really good point. So that's it for the questions right now. We honestly united had these types of conversations for year really really long time and and this is just another one of those conversations of how to how to live with someone with ptsd. What it's really like. i. I'm going to go out on a limb here. What's the worst part about living with someone with. Ptsd not knowing how they're gonna react something and so you know there's times when not recently but you know there were times i'm like oh i don't know if i want to tell him this 'cause i don't know how he's gonna react. I don't know where he's at today. You know mentally like you know. He's already got a lot on his plate. I'm kinda it's almost like an egg shells kind of thing like the. You wanna be really careful. You know so so those can be a little. And i'm sure i'm the same way i'm sure you and the kids stay away. Well i think for me and maybe for the kiddos too. I don't know but for me. It's the the worst part you know other other than the obvious of you. Know seeing my spouse going through this right but you know how it how it affects. Your frustrates me is the inability to plan. I love planning. I'm like okay. What are we going to do tomorrow. Six weeks from now five years from now and like i don't know win and might depression depression. Yeah and you're going to be like. Oh sorry man like as much as you would love to go do that. Depression is just crushed. You for that day or week or i mean there are many many times to. I'm going to say through the years that i've pushed myself. You know because. I i wanna do fun things at the family like you know. I think a lot of people feel that way. Like yeah wanna goaded disneyworld and make memories you know and you feel like that that depression creep over you and you just got to push through it as hard as it is. You just gotta you can't quit. You got to keep moving gonna walk wounded speaking of which so i know we. We referenced. The walk wounded message right. So so for those of you. Who don't know this was a message from church. The highlands with A great jura tear in this region of the country. One of the biggest in the nation as i recall got twenty plus camp twenty two twenty. Three i don't even know now. We got a bunch of campuses anyway. The the one of the pastors nikon carter. He spoke any told the story about a guy that will testament by the name of jacob who ends up wrestling with this angel and this angel as he's wrestling with jacob he he knocks jacobs jacobs hip out of socket right but jacob keeps wrestling. He's like hey. I am not going to let you go until you bless me. And so he. He eventually wins the wrestling match. The angel blesses him. And then jacob has to go meet his brother. There's whole back did this to me his brother and as he's going to meet his brother he's limping like crazy. And so even though the angels blessed and basically god putting his hand on him and saying hey like i you know i i love you. I approve of what you're doing. You know i'm blessing right now. Even though god did that he didn't heal him completely soup but jacob still had to keep moving and he had to walk wounded. Right into put in real world speak is like yeah. You can have blessings you can have all these great things in life you can have money. Houses cars land lakes pools vacation homes. But that doesn't mean you're not going to have wounds right from other people from yourself from life itself. Ptsd is usually a a life itself kind of thing so what you gotta keep walking for. Sure for sure so what's another takeaway back to. What we're saying is be patient and educate yourself. If you want to help your spouse or even yourself like okay like read just read read. How other people are doing it and that have been successful and and see how it actually manifests in your own life. Because just saying it's ptsd. I bet there some other things surrounding it that maybe you don't even know. And so educate yourself and be patient with yourself and your spouse if it's your spouse right right and somebody said this is another great takeaway. Here is give your spouse space if your spouse was the one who has the. Ptsd right give them the space they need. I will say that with the caveat if you believe. They are in danger of hurting themselves. Get the appropriate help. Absolutely this is not the your spouse said. Hey i'm gonna take my own life and then you say okay one. That's giving them space. No no no. That's not a time when you need to give them space. That's a time when there needs to be an intervention right. You know so when we're talking to give give your spouse space. it's you patricia. Saying yeah take your dog for hike. Its ninety degrees. go ahead. i'm not with you. I'll be in the pool right. Yeah right yeah gopher run go go do something to to just relax to take that. Take the edge off so to speak. Then so give your spouse space. I think is a really really great takeaway there so anything else any other takeaways. We should share with our audience today. I don't know. I think we've covered it. I mean just to walk wounded. Hold their hand while they're walking did. Oh may that's the that'll pre treat there. that's good. That is so good well patricia again. So much for coming on the show really really appreciate. I know you didn't feel great today but you muscled through it and i'm so so glad you did. I know our listeners grew be happy as well and obviously on this show. We ask a lot of questions that we do our best to answer a lot of questions and we all have a lot of questions but the most important question we can ask ourselves is this.

Seems like a very logical thing to do But in practice a lot more complicated than you would think. Because you have to have microphones permission you have to then be able to essentially have a speech recognition system and then some nfl. You in the background at least at a basic level in order to be able to do that and so i've been doing that for several years and during that period of time amazon echo came out which was interesting and that company that i'd been helping out through some friends decided to spend more time in that

We like to live in that and we like to live in that color range that dark gold color to tell us about off so this was actually brewed competition. Originally it was a competition for so at the most local beer brew. There's a farm five miles north of here called VOCA farm They grow probably one hundred different grains vegetables staples fruits herbs things like that. They supply a lot of restaurants in the area And day. Am One two things they grow. There are Turkish red winter we and miniature blue popcorn both are heirloom varieties of Of If there's specific grains and so for this competition I thought you know what I need to brew is a semi normal American wheat beer. That's brewed with very strange unorthodox ingredients so to prove that you could brew semi normal beer with not normal ingredients gradients so the idea was to come out as a pretty standard American wheat bureau with a little bit of Hay is kind of dark gold color That lemony the aspect of American Wheat Beers. In so I I made this. Beer air popped Two five gallon bucket full of blue miniature popcorn and If you sit after you drink it for a few seconds you get that tiny bit of toasty. Oh St grain thing going on almost like you ate popcorn like an hour ago and you're still getting that little bit aftertaste. But it's got not only those rose it's got our cascade hops From here and it's also was dry ha with just a tiny bit of Chinook from landlocked tops and Loda so you get a tiny bit of the pine citrus note from China Cop and then you get a little bit about herbal citrus from the from the cascade and then you get the the the weedy background that Turkish red wheat most most.

I'm Phil Clarke the Brit and this is number three hundred twenty eight so on this episode owed amounting about any time standing outside Wego brewing company in as we girl annoy and I'm about to experience a slightly different inside of the craft beer industry judging yes head brewer Mark Wilson has invited brewers and and so-called celebrities to judge the homebrew competition that will be part of the week. I brought the bridge festival which is going to be held this Saturday in September twenty first and I think by the time we release this episode that will have been done and dusted so this is a great opportunity for me hey to test out my price embiid tasing but to also find out the quality all the bruise that homebrew club's producing because some of them may go onto a tomorrow's craft beer ruas now. I'm GONNA be joined. on this quote unquote also judging team by let me reference my list here wego brewing chat room manager Aaron Royston Tony Week who is the owner of your bills new bottle shelter and tap room flight white ONA brew Lincoln slagelse from Emancipation Brewing in February Illinois Gilson's Gregory owner Dan Amazon and there hasn't been too good craft beer bar and restaurant and you should go there and hotline. Bre Ken mcmullen. Who Sometimes Co host with me this time round and he's GonNa be on the judging panel. So why don't you you grab your favorite brew. Maybe even knows week one as we go through this tasting journey and hopefully end up picking a great bear that will conventionally brewed by mark and his team and it's going to be put on TAP available for down here does Wego Brewing Company so uh. Let's go in and see how we're going to do this. are you there. degeorge got the jets judge just judge some Santa with a couple of the judges who are going to be. I don't know if you guys all the celebrity celebrity judges or the official judges. I know I'm in the neither category. I'm signing with Tony Weeks from light tasting facing women bottle shop in your brand new as I understand it right. We opened Monday. What's going to be your theme at the ball show for you. You'RE GONNA go for really rab is we're going to go for what you don't find jewel. You know so not not necessarily for pretty much everything we have. We have a pretty big inventory right right now. we really like supporting for local guy we we definitely have. Oswego brewings Speier Their River Lansing Saint Charles and energy city and be like all those who guys what else do we want to cover a wide range as well and what is your hours there tend to ten during the weekend to eleven eleven on Friday and Saturday. You're doing bid judging. Do you have qualifications embiid or are you like me just like this. I just like your good man so I guess what is your initial soul about doing this. Have you ever done anything like this before. No I have never done anything like this. That's why I studied up on. I didn't study just look at what was expected studying by having many beers yesterday good man all right and then also standing with me from very spiky infamous or famous. I don't know which it is in Aurora Nice Restaurant Call and you are Dan. There was an owner Dan. Are you a quote unquote celebrity judge I would. I would put myself in that category so you don't have the patience so I'm kind of setting this up. You know these people are brought these home versions yeah. They really want to get opinions of professionals. We all going to have some expressions. Gerald is here. I like drinking beer just like every other in practice also yesterday so I don't know if we should ask whether or not your favorite styles. Do you think that actually kind of Mason Mason bias someway I think for this time of year only because of the season ever we're going to I can't tell you throughout the year what my number one lately like most people the Hazier or New England. I tease my favorite but I'm looking forward to this winter. How long have you been drinking beer. No I don't I don't think Harrison thing I mean you know so uh twenty four twenty years ago. I was drinking natty light or something wasn't drinking Craft Beers and so now you've really really craft beer. INCRASE has a craze. It's racist and industry right. Now is really taken off and and now it's it's opening new ones all the time and who knew that we were going to have bottle shows right. I is we do well. We'll see how this goes in. One of our three show bage just turned up. It's coming from all wrapped him in just a second so I'm kind of anxious to figure Ralph how they are going to go on. This is going on the official. JCP guidelines which you gotta get your adjectives right and with that sir did mention that we have a professional with us now and Tim Mullin came in from hotline ten of course. I co hosted the gas with many times but this time round. I'M GONNA be asking you some questions. You've done bid judge mid fall. What should three in quote unquote celebrities. That's what they said. Ma says celebrity judges what should we expect. And how should we go out while you should expect expect to walk you right through it so it's it's quite simple. It was a good job. I wrote my lost my reading glasses when you when you're you're AIDS thank you can. I need to and I'm not near you. You look at the beer you smell the beers you taste the beers and also mouth feel you know come up with those little pieces and then you do the overall. I think that's what we're doing right yeah. I'm looking here the form Tom and it seems actually that's a changed a little bit to the ones that they have on. Houser homebrew scoring sheet the best and in fact it uses uses for the appearance. It gives us college. Yeah Walk See right through this. We if we're tracing pills now and the color is to recite. This should be yes. You haven't seen a doctor a what you call it a Cascadia and Cascadia Kadian pills okay cool so we've taken care of market. Is there anywhere that there is for comments. It doesn't mean sort out joining us now is head brewer promos. Rica Brewing Company and I guess you're the guy behind this homebrew competition or at least the suggestion is that right you can suggest if they corey is really Let's go talk Laurie. Two coreys with the Park district and she's the one that is really the mastermind. We just kind of sit here. Let her do all the work and this this. This is all ahead of the bridge which I'm going to assume you're the keystone VER- reform which is that last year we were because you must be just freshman so initiate your the Keystone Berry. You'll do over competition. What should we not not answer that. I have no idea okay. I'm really only beers. We introduce a new categories. The categories are pretty broad. Were we're. We're judging there. We have seven categories now a high. Abd light-colored beer low av other beer and whatnot this year. We introduced a beards here so I see what people are putting together for thirty years. That's actually Robert Good because last night I was hosting in a couple of years. We have been putting aside for fucked house. That never happened so I had to get drinking themselves. Obviously my tongue. How would you suggest suggest we go about the tasting in but you know we're going to be taking a lot. This like how many inches go but I'm I'm assuming six switches typical flight right right. What would you suggest we refresh pilot with because I've heard a lot about. EPA's and getting Halley fatigued yeah so it looks like Proxima saltines or unsalted Saltine so those are always good just kinda like munch on between Your Inbetween Beers spouses of water glass or two. I mean sure you're like wait a challenge crackers and I think I've made a also supposed to the table they eat it. Pass over all right okay yeah. I know what you mean. okay that'd be really great and I guess from our perspective will with we're we're. GonNa look at that form.

"It's i'm trying to do good. You're relying on oxidation to give you the flavors. You're looking forward. We're going to be sending things that you have laying around when from houston how we destroyed your. I think i'm getting elements of pete but i'm also getting. It's really in the back. Now i would say this raising and yeah and you know like oxidation acting out you mean by that. I mean a little bit but it's a blend of so many it different things because it's barrel-a-day. It's happening to me. I'm tasting this and it's there's so many there's so many things like. I'm not enjoying it. I really in maryland last over here where we're okay with that asks barrels breathe and so there. I know they're gonna get hit. Rocks nation is a big deal and barely so what it will so he's gonna flames oxidation means when you will tell you well. I mean that's really oxidized. You're getting life. Sweat socks depends on what kind of but i'm not getting any of that but it's like well. The thing is it's like with like light lagers and things like that. You don't want yeah yeah. No that's a bad thing. 'cause it's going to taste what some people say wet cardboard to me is like allow the flavor muted diminished and but you marley weiner's oxidation might not hurt the encourage like looking for some some lavin the wrong place at some some notes that you get from aging and beer like dark fruit and stuff like that. I don't get that let me ask you this the core of this unknown to everything else. Could you actually place the style because that's the one thing i did is that it's it's like i taste it. It's like okay kinda. Sorta taste like a barley wine. I drank a year ago but it's really dark and i try to get it. I get something completely different. It's really dark and it doesn't have roast melts. It's got more rat. I don't know what it's bad just arranged by personal preference not a fan so let meet let me tell you what this is. A blend of its five dock ails seduction which i guess i it doesn't say say that in the notes here but it's the doctrine aging brandy barrels candy stout k. c. a. n. d. i. agent a a scotch whiskey barrels and barrels which could explain the tampering of the penis susa russa asian mess cow barrel. That's tequila right keillor dot being all beluga okay got one okay uh-huh and hand of the queen which was one of the game of thrones beers aged in bourbon barrels vanhanen the queen. I really enjoyed i. I i haven't had a back handed acquaint. I remember that as being one of the ones i really enjoyed and that's been asian bubble so they've taken all these nine. That's one two three four five remarkable. They say wait a minute and missing one. What the hell i'm reading anyway anyway regardless <hes>. I don't know how that really translates to this bill. Although van it works or it doesn't work and apparently for ken. You've got a different flavor profile. That doesn't work for you for me. This is the beer of the evening but last we've had you know i think we've had the last one better than like this one the barrel on okay and might be because i smelled more of the really as good as blessaun zero zero alcohol as much as i smell the barrel more power you yeah to me. It's just i think i think for me. It's just the finish. Kinda leads me a little more something. I don't know maybe the difference is. Whether you pay for the beer seikai matters yeah yeah yeah. Let's let's have a show. Let's be i'm gonna give it two thumbs up because i really enjoy cans going to give it a thumbs sideways.

"The back of the label it does say that the barrel aging some of the is and some malaysian bourbon barrels summing ri- barrels and others embarrass yet to come well that means but i have is not dirty <hes> we expect to release new ballets bears most more frequently in the coming months and years so again. It doesn't really say what type of a barrel detect little maturity to do this via sunny. The kala is <hes> a lighter color <hes>. I'm not you know it's not a real food. Don't okay okay open. It would be a double color battle. Get an early on this because i really clear when it when it when goss like that all talk and the bottom came up and so are murky but your guys app but we lost only oh really carbonation too so yeah it does taste a little firmly probably could get down to wonder carbs. You wanna get down on the tour and would have more carbonation than might face morvan. Yeah maybe <hes> maybe an all that being said though it's a damn good beer oh yeah fantastic they okay <hes> have produced this. I think as i say out of their early abby double which was one of the early biz <hes> they actually nice the inside in two thousand and one they produced three philosophies which is another one of their standard-bearer <hes> which is a touch of belgian creek they say a belgian style quadruple <unk> touch belt from creek right cherry and then <hes> two thousand four they did their wit which is a we'll tell which we just did the fruit proof phantom icees <hes> and <hes> in two thousand four they started to have their full-scale <music> scale beer festivals which brings me to when you go to the brewery there is the restaurant area and then you kinda go through the restaurant error in the back a bit. There's this enormous covered area where they it's like outside. It's covered and they have things lights a big jenga games and other stuff you the bags and stuff like that and then behind that they have as his enormous great field which is i think where they held their festivals and put up tents and all let good stuff when we were there. We sat down. We're eating some food. <hes> we'd been to the bottle shopping got goodies and then all of a sudden the heavens opened and i gotta tell ya everybody came rushing in from off the field and under the under the cover of that outside area but it was absolutely pouring down rain <hes> they've got the facilities to allow you to get on the cover and still have lots of people outside <hes>. The one thing that was really weird was that they closed during the week. I think it was in chile's. A thursday a price they closed at five o'clock clock and one thinks that being a big brewer like this they'd be open until a lot later maybe seven but now they closed on a <hes>. I think it's monday through wednesday. They closed at five only open keeping keeping the puntos was wanting more and see you know new glares us they close at five and the reason is i heard deb. Kerry giving a talk at scrappers conference or the reason they close at five is because the local bars they they want they give people like i can't remember the jackals or tickets or whatever for a beer at a bar in in new glamorous than the town but then they're not competing with what is actually their customer the bars that are buying their beard so that's why they close early say there are far well. That's pretty <hes> good of them. My guess different way to look at it and you know. Most of us are as you guys you get as many people in the brewery tap him right right well. That's true yeah which really pisses me off and on wednesday competitors the road there riverislands <music> got one okay so today's barrel aged abby w they do use belgian candi sugar in this which i know you're very familiar with because it is a major component of your devil's advocate yeah dozen candy sugar is definitely part of it so here's different kinds get darker or the lighter different expand and according.

"Morton. There's no. I'm just telling you that the beer that's left in. There can be all murky all the good stuff on in the one thing. I've kind of gone with <hes> ever since i heard it which is about three years ago from brian paula that borough pollyanna he said okay. I'm producing for you to enjoy now. If you want a salary that's up to you but it should be enjoyed now so my kind of anthony mantras of i'm gonna buy if i buy something that i really think i want to keep i'll buy two bottles of one now and then i'll i'll keep it for one year and then i'll drink in ca and we'll see if it changes are improved but you've got that little thing to talk to you. Later early line with me made a big rally wanted and we cracked it open cup once you're filming cracked it open the murray and he had one that was current grab the bird and we rank them both side by side and i mean he raged about one from before claire better it totally changed in color is out of this yeah and i i was kind of like why would you keep her violence. I just they can't hold the carbonation over over that period of time out. Had somebody give me a pack of thomas hardy's l. which is barley wine some things from eighty six or eighty several. Oh i remember the flat ak man. Bring it on down at bali one. Should i have one request. Someone needs to sit there and just dial nine one on the phone and just keep their finger over that last last lunch. Just in case i i went to a beer cans and i went to a whole barley.

"Absent awesome all right so let's drink. It gone so britain. Macy's obviously is a salary <hes> bacteria right that sounds it doesn't sour doesn't sound it but it changes. It changes things in the fall river's look. There's there's very down their throat and it's on the nose you get this this like a dried fruit on the nose and almost i almost it's like there's some but there's not really tired at all like on the nose but right. There's an my mouth is going late. It's like it's like dry right and yeah very dry. D aromas a lot better than the taste. It's just which is me. It's different. I don't mind this with the aroma. There's more character in the nose. Then there is in what i get out of drinking. I i could go with that so it's not bad or offensive. It's just there's i think it smells and better than a taste but at least eighty percent of the way they're the weight off as roma gets you like eighty percent of the way there has to follow through. I don't know let let me read to you. Description of this which has a shitload fruit descriptors says the trump ankle fruit and overwrite funk funk. That's probably talking about the phone. The phone dude are you <hes>. Where was i oh yeah complex road. Oh this is the aroma complex note <hes> suddenness of cinnamon clove in banana bread. I i don't know if i go back but talk flavors right pineapple passion fruit and come would he would come. I'm not getting it. Have you either. Have you gotta come. What the hell does it come through. They never found quite three combat tastes like acom class to me. This is delicious spirit. I love it. It's really different and weird and unique. It's it's it's absolutely absolutely unique i. I don't think it needed to dry hopping. I'll tell you that who did what was right. I mean sometimes early. Try like this. Some of the flavors can candidate flatten out almost lingers lingers in the finnish sometimes too long some some of the flavors maybe adult for me if you've got too many especially after some sweetness tucked in there as really dry i yeah but it's really trying really drivers but that's where that's where sometimes it gets a little bit of conflict really try but if gerson sweetness sometimes they can really accentuate those flavors alive that baby too much so i don't know i don't you're not raising this curry. You're not gonna have really wild says crispy s._u._v. It enjoyed now. We'll sell it because they reckon that you're the flavors are going to change over time and from a pairing perspective they're recommending that you have buttery the seafood such as lobster sweet crab or new england clam chowder could see anything so <hes> and i do the one thing about obama game <hes> they're kinda. Cash craze is where heaven earth and stayed awhile l. which is kinda lufti words there but i can see on some of the beers they've definitely heavenly so so phil that that bottle is it's bottle conditioned which means there's a layer of yeast on the bottom and your whipping at all around the ones issue one that too.

I have discovered that potentially they might not have been burry only no matter. I couldn't find this one that i have in my hand. Everybody is thinking it's going to explode in my hand clerk now.

Frisk loss and it seems to be keeping its head so this has been out since august of two thousand eighteen <hes> i don't know if they just bottled it all in two thousand eighteen and i don't know if as indict on that bottle but perhaps somebody could have a look. This is as i said a dry wit beer. Did i feel center is that it was a dr houghton retail now. According to the according to the information i've found on it dry hot whitman now. Is that the same thank you thank goodness so they put we. I on the on the label is that because they think people want a wit beer is wet means why ryan wit is brewed with wheat. Okay yeah so it's walks out but it says on the side paul slowly so as not to disturb the sediment but with another big to create a luxury as head and released the rich bouquet which i think i did so having released the bouquet.

The only gang of antigua comprised a very large number of elements wants one of those elements was that the whale <hes> so they have a whale in this thing and it's a memory of a whale that swam out the show river and was killed by antwerp citizens who extracted the wairoa from certain important and then they have other things in it like a sculpted elephant which was remembering the first one that arrived in antwerp in fifteen sixty three how about that <hes> and then one of my favorites yeah the <hes> the giant drew on anti the giant who according to antoine legend had he's handcuffed by ankles mythical hairy hero brave. Oh let me got lots of names on biz could use they can just rave here. Let me go drink that randall so anyway <hes> that's a little bit about the gang now just to go back to borough a gang <hes> this was <hes> started way back in nineteen ninety seven so they've those guys have been around for a while and i <hes> beer they opened up. Was there all my gang abby double so remember that because later on we're going don't get very into that. Okay thank you <hes> and that's a trappist style doc. I'll <hes> and according to their website. It says it broke the mold of the emerging american cross busy back in nineteen ninety seven now ken. You've been around quite a bit right. I think you managing managing restaurants back then. I was home run back but back. I mean back in the nineties. Everybody brutes the lineup that sam smith's sent over it was pale ales and oatmeal doubts and browns nut browns and you know that was the liner so sam smith's not sam madam sarah sanders sam smith right really wow. I know that yeah look at look at if you look back at like rock bottom what they were brewing back there. That's that's what goose island was burned back then. That's what everybody being so. I can see how a belgian double would've broken the mold. Did you know yeah and since then we've had <hes> a number of other breweries have done the belgian styles but i don't know these guys seem to really kicked ass all right so this <hes> delightful rosetta <hes> it comes in a five point six percent so it was a little less than the other one and i think that's that's quite enough for this particular. This again is another sip in bed that i would have <hes> one of an evening. I don't think i can add more than one of these. What you're eating my to drink this bhairon on twenty twenty one twenty two again the six pack of four going onto the bar right drinking when you're right about that jerry kostov hundred percents had in what he's not that long back. I'll tell you i just in this segment <hes> to let you know after they brute that double the next one between ninety seven and two thousand through <hes>.

You know ten bucks for four pack and it's one of these days. I think that you're gonna have as you know one bit of an evening. You might have a couple but i think one beer of an evening. You're gonna sit that and be very happy yeah so the play corners why they probably called american. I would guess so <hes>. Let's we we've been. We've been going in for quite some time on his first segment. We're gonna take a quick break so we can refresh at pallets and then i'm gonna come back and give you a quiz. <hes> ready for christmas sure okay. It's only one question so you might get a brian.

I really hadn't had it once before now about it again and yeah that's worth the price of admission that be all right moving on so the quiz that i had <unk> said we were going to have <hes>. Do you know what an all my gang. Is anybody a beer a brewery in new york. Okay so <hes> just for your edification. An almost gang is dutch. People walk around okay so in medieval times it kind of transposed into medieval pageant and there is still the all my gang of antoine that goes on and they have basically parades all sorts of things that we things in this pa- right but basically it's to walk around and enjoy things he says knock can microphone of alex walk around and enjoy things. That's an almost gang in <hes> in dutch flemish belgian indus- that's what it is so that is actually what gang is and brewery on the gang came about because <hes> they had a lot of these belgian style ales and nathan well. What can we do. We can just enjoy these bs together and they actually <unk> gang is actually owned by davao more gatt. Yeah so development is one of the big belgian beers though i would say if anybody wanted to davao than boy oh boy one you jump home because that's a really decent mainstream belgium bid anybody disagree up. Everybody's good right so an ex is one that you can get again an over the counter here from the fine folks at bir on the game but it is <hes> the actual creation that they did <hes> with the brewery on leeson's so this one is called rosetta..
