Why You Should Promise Less To Make More
"We all heard the saying under promise over deliver now. I don't actually agree with that statement because under promising sounds like you're holding back purposely so you can overdeliver. There are too many coaches out there. That are promising. I'm gonna get you to seven eight figures there's too many software platforms out there. That are saying it's going to do everything for you including making breakfast every day. Every answer to the cue's is yes. Yes yes we can do this too many online courses or her saying that we cover everything under the sun. This is really dangerous.

Most customers read that as these are all the things i have to do. These are all the things. I have to learn. These are all the things. I have to utilize the software. And it's actually a turnoff. It actually turns away customers because it becomes overwhelming. You think. hey i wanna give more value. I wanna give them so many things. I want to show them all the things they can do.

Notable Developments on the College Basketball Coaching Carousel Scuttlebutt
"A lot of movement on the coaching carousel. Over the past couple of days the big. One of course was indiana firing archie miller. After four seasons. We talked about that on a previous podcast. So go find it. We're not going to spend any time on that here but let me walk you through the other notable developments richard patino out at minnesota and as up tuesday morning. He's the new coach at new mexico. State has quote parted ways with steve. Prohm depaul finally took. Dave laid off the hot seat list. Boston college hired earl. Grant penn state hired mike castrucci berry dead leg spin a pretty good right now. It's spinning man. Yeah listen we give the. We are gearing up for this tournament. We got we got more than forty eight hours till. We're gonna tip the first game here so as expected. We've had some movement on the carousel. So we'll let's get into a little bit of this This scuttle but here kind of take it job by job. Best job openings indiana. Let's kind of go in order. I guess second best job. That's open. I would say iowa state is a better job than minnesota steve. Prohm gets fired late monday night. His jamie pollard was on the selection committee so he traveled back as he should have to meet with promo person and do what he what needed to be done You and i both seven the podcast in january. We expected steve prone to return next season. But we also didn't expect iowa state to never win a game like he just got to an irreversible point. so he's done. He put out a classy statement on tuesday morning. And i don't know whether or not steve prohm will land somewhere else head. Coaching position this coaching cycle but he will be a head coach again. He did take iowa state to three inch tournaments he was really good prior to that at murray state and certainly qualified for. It's just a matter of Is there anything out there. That he would be offered or anything out there that he would want as for the job. The candidates we're early. But i'm told that this is certainly a coach that you know quite well as well i'm told jamie pollard definitely will be considering. Unlv head coach. Tj burger near the top of his list. I can't say that he is the favorite. I just think that it's objectively true. That tj also burger will be under consideration for the iowa state job along the likes of. You're going to hear puerto moser connected to multiple jobs on this podcast because let's face it especially if he wins at least one tournament game. He's just a hot name. And he's going to be attached to iowa st paul minnesota. I i don't know if you'd be a favorite for state. But i think his name makes sense. I think utah. State's craig smith might make sense and then a high. I do have a wildcard one. Uab's andy kennedy has gone to the sec. Good job at ole miss. He's just one year and at uab but he had he had a really good year. In fact i think he won more games in his first season. This past season than just about anyone. Maybe all of all of the first year coach coaches. So i think that's a fact no first year coach at a new program. One more games this season than ak i. It's just i'm lobbying out. There is a name that should be considered. And then i did see fran for shila tweet this and i do. I do think there's something to it. Like a baylor is a one seed could be in the final four. Hey first time since bill henderson all that good stuff tang is a is a high level power conference assistant that is deserving of an opportunity would come at a power conference level. I don't know. But i think it's only a matter of time before jerome tank. Its job as well. So i'm just tossing him in knows the league as potentially someone that They should consider or at least at the very least interview sets an initial pool of
Game Review: Persona 5 Strikers
"Per no. I been playing anything new this past week trying to so i finally took some time to start playing a persona five strikers which. I'm not sure if i ever mentioned it on the show proper but well this part. I'm sure i did. I'm a sucker for persona games and tim. Montgomery tennessee shocker. Everyone i know But strikers originally kind of didn't sit well with me because it was designed by omega force which i know it is the tecmo. Koei branch says hughley responsible for a lot of the musso tiles we come across part warriors teams and dynasty warriors skis and hyrule warriors game that kind of stuff and those games generally kinda into boring me over time because they don't derek. They don't differentiate enough between the actions of just mashed putting until you're done. So i was concerned that i wouldn't like personify strikers because there's going to be just more of the same in every attempt i made to get. These games always failed. But i'm happy to report. I've been enjoying persona fai strikers. Like it's the one. The narrative is still kind of their innocence. That you if you like personifies narrative this is a continuation of that game. So if you didn't play royal me You don't have to care You can move right into this game as sequel and the narrative continues on everyone's back together as the phantom fees chatting it up about stuff. Well they didn't choose to become these things happen. That caused them to have to do it again but all prisons again chatting with each other. Yes cool i wanna get like the social leagues and stuff like they used to because of course the game is more streamlined for action gameplay not an rpg but you still get the character interaction the dialogue and the hilarious moments that happened. I wish they'd stop picking on you so much. He's my boy man. My favorite of every every persona game everyone but four and five both had like three four and five had care essentially and i genuinely feel like june june. Pay still probably my top dog because he was so laid back but after him. I think ryuji legit was like john stupidity. Maybe if the cat jerker around so much he wouldn't make comments like he does. I love that. Like oh we're going to do this to save the world. Are we gonna do this. We gotta stop crime in regions like we're going to do this and pick up girls almost. He's the normal he's like the most average he's in group a teenager as the most like average teenager. And so like there's any opportunity like i'm like yeah. My character is going to hang out with reugee and try to pick up girls and of course they're going to fail and it's going to be funny but like i feel like this is the bonding experiences like the the teenagers need. You know i'm not gonna have them like okay now. I gotta go work out all right now. I gotta go to the doctor to get medicine. So that i can go to the next dungeon and no man. I wanted to be a teenager for a while. We'll we'll see what courses you're going to big bang burger on the weekend for saving the world on the weekend saving the world more like it's a great game. The combat is good. The characterizations are great. And the best part is that even the musto elements don't feel so bad because the combat heavily emphasizes exploiting enemy weaknesses like the ship. Montgomery tennessee is known for you. Have to still have decent using your personas though. There's a lot less personas now. So you're not as frustrated with choices anymore. You speeds now as long as you just kinda sort of pay attention to what you're doing you should be okay with your personas but i put it on hard mode because i'm that jerk and in fact whereas it personify i can play the whole game and never go to the store for items and armor. That's not gonna happen here. Because i got to a boss early the game who started mopping the floor with me and i was doing like two four damage per hit keeping in mind on pre was doing like thirty. It was like a nit-pick chip away damage. Bit like the boss. Before that i had one character survive it was panther fight against suck best and she sucky was strong against attacks so it was very frustrating. But i beat it to a grinding at it right. Yeah i have to finally start spending my money and i have to actually level personas and not. Just be like hey weaknesses. Careful fighter. I'll be good like no because sometimes the gain hasn't get by fire blasts off screen and you'll die because you have no armor hit
Peggy Brusseau discusses her new book, "The Contented Vegan"
"How was the contented vegan difference the other things that you've written well it includes as i say it includes a little bit of the thought process behind choosing a plant based diet So i have one whole section called thinking deeper which discusses things like the food chain Plant life animal life and animal welfare as well as the issue of rights. Do we have a right to use the land in the way. We're doing to use animals in the way we're doing so a broad range of thinking processes included in it as well as an emphasis on health and securing health and building good health as well as on family life. You could say stretch that into social life as well so that the the vegan diet or the plant based diet is not considered a problem or a nuisance. That it's normalized ya. Yeah so what. I've done is i've tried to write the contented vegan in a way that is rather more an invitation to people to to try even. If it's just one meal a week that is scheduled to be plant. Based that's step forward in my opinion. And i've tried to make the book a tool kit really so that people who who want to try but don't really know where to start. I can kind of hold their hand a little bit. So for instance. The early on the book. I've introduced what. I call the eighty twenty rule which everyone is familiar with in some form in some aspect of their life and all it is applied to the plant based i had all it is is to to say having look at what you've eaten in the past few days over the past week and decide which you know how much of that is plant based already and generally approximately eighty percent of a person's diet even if they call themselves an omnivore or a meat eater. Approximately eighty percent is already plant. Based i've given the example of a burger. If you take out the burger and replace it with a bean burger you probably have an entirely plant based meal. Just that simple exchange if there's mayo or if there's cheese you can also swapped those for plant based version and have something that looks almost identical to meet based meal so very simple steps can alter the balance And make a meal. It resembles a your normal bill in every other way but make it into a plant based one so the eighty twenty rule says check it out about eighty percent is probably already plant based and all you have to work with the remaining twenty percents and you can do that gradually because there's no hurry. There's no rush to do this. It has to fit you and your circumstances and you can take a couple of years to just pick away at that twenty percent and gradually become more accustomed to a plant based diet or largely plant based diet Pick find your favorite foods and recipes Within that paradigm and then Relaxed into it. So that it's enjoyable. It suits us under your circumstances and you feel comfortable and and

'Coming 2 America' Goes Heavy On Nostalgia
"Too heavily on nostalgia. Unless you're a huge fan of Eddie Murphy's classic 1988 film coming to America, and lots of people are there's not going to be a lot for you, and it's less than inspired sequel Coming to America. We celebrated her 30 years absolute and prosperity. 30 Years of service. Well, great nation on 30 Years off Delicious fast food. The new film begins with Murphy's Prince Akeem Joe Fair, opening a fast food restaurant called McDowell's in the African Country of Amanda Devote ease of the first movie. No. This chain is owned by Akin's American father in law, played by John Amos, who denies his business is in any way a rip off of another well known burger joint. They've got egg mcmuffins way that a mixed up in this way are also celebrating my new beyond big mix burger, So there's no meat. There's no meat. Maybe we're getting much better with Pepsi Call Max here are subtle as a sledgehammer. This scene mostly gives us an excuse to see Amos and Louie Anderson, who also appeared in the first film, The Story of the original movie was a black centered fairytale. Murphy's a keen came to America, Queens, New York, of course, tow avoid an arranged marriage and find true love in the new movie. After the death of his father, King Akeem discovered he fathered a son unknowingly in America. Teams return to Queens brings one of the Sequels funniest moments when he revisits a local barber shop where movie magic allows Murphy and costar Arsenio Hall to play multiple parts. Just like in the first film can't be both famine and blood. Damn, Nelson Mandela and Winnie just discovered that I may have a bastard son here in this land conceived during my last visit. How much data supports you getting from the King pays no child support. No time for 30 years and you came back. You're the damn it. Comic Jermaine Fowler plays the sun. Lovell Johnson, who brings King a came home to meet his mother marry played by Saturday night Live alum Leslie Jones. My African I told you he was gonna come back. So you know this man. I definitely know this man. I know this man all the way live much as I love Leslie Jones, she and levels. Other American relatives, including Tracy Morgan, as his uncle Come off is uncomfortable stereotypes as King Akeem introduces his son to the moonda and pressures him into an arranged marriage. Comedy gets clunkier and more predictable, like a Mel Brooks style parody of the Black Panther of The Lion King and the first coming to America. Ultimately, this coming to America is mostly an excuse to bask in the glow of characters who's shown so much brighter and distinctively. 33 years ago. I'm Eric Deggans.

Restaurants Look for Ways Around Food-Delivery Apps
"Okay. So here's an experience. You probably become pretty familiar with in the last year or so. You go door dash or ubereats figure out exactly what you wanna eat. You added to your cart and then when you go to check out. The cost of your meal has skyrocketed with all the fees and delivery charges. And somehow you're stuck paying twenty five dollars for a burger that originally cost twelve bucks on the other side of the process. Restaurants have had a similar experience. They depend on apps. Like doordash uber eats to connect them to customers especially in the pandemic but have been frustrated with the commission that they charge and now some restaurants have been looking for ways to cut out the middleman or apps for more on this we turn to our tech reporter pretty khurana. Hey guys thanks for being here. Thanks for having me on the show. Okay so talk about some of the frustrations that restaurants have been bringing up. And what are we seeing them do about it. Well restaurants are increasingly pushing back on the commissions that apps charge not just restaurants regulators in cities like new york san francisco. Seattle have stepped in to cap commissions. Because it's really hurting restaurants with in store. Dining shot small restaurants are relying entirely on delivery and taking thirty percent of every single order is really eating into their prophets. What restaurants are increasingly doing. And this is ironic. My door dash delivery a few weeks ago. Had a sticker from my restaurant inside the bag seeing twenty percent off if you order directly from us and i found it interesting because the restaurant was using the same app that it was trying to bypass to get the word out so restaurants are increasingly driving more volume to their own websites their own apps there enticing consumers with deals discounts promotions that people go directly to them to order. What's also happened. Is that this push and pull between restaurants and apps have inspired a new wave of online delivery services that are saying you know what we're going to give better deals to restaurants and some of them that we wrote about are either charging restaurants. Nothing or charging them say one dollar for every order as opposed to thirty percent commission on the order and how the apps respond to the concerns that the restaurants have about those commissions. Well the meeting apps have said that they have taken steps to help only on and the pandemic door dash waved commissions for small restaurants. Grubhub suspended some commissions. Overeats has said that it has cut commissions in hof for restaurants that are now doing their own deliveries so the apps are pointing to all these steps they have taken to cut or wave or suspend commissions. Touring the pandemic separately. They've said that we've also given millions of dollars in grants to restaurants to help build outdoor seating so they are definitely helping restaurants. But i think commission's are here to stay Especially off to the pandemic and it remains to be seen how this reshapes landscape long-term As consumer behavior evolves and as restaurants think of alternatives to get around these apps in their fees yet and. Let's talk more about those alternatives. You know you mentioned some of them are any of them. Proving successful so far it's unclear if the new host of apps and services that are coming up will ever turn a profit themselves because even the big apps ubereats jordache grubhub aren't profitable even during the pandemic where orders an all time high. These apps haven't been able to turn a profit. The biggest cost in food delivery. Is the delivery itself. So what some of these new apps are doing is that they're saying let's eliminate that cost altogether. What some of these apps doing are driving enough volume to restaurants themselves to make it worthwhile for the restaurant to deliver. So in that instance. The app itself doesn't have any delivery fees or any delivery cost associated restaurants set their own delivery fees for the consumer and what we found is that often they price it lower than say door dash or ubereats just encourage more orders on apps that are charging no commissions or offering better deals to restaurants. Yeah and on the other side of that door dash is set to post earnings later today. It's their first report since going public. And as you mentioned they and the rest of these apps have really struggled to make money even as the pandemic meeks ordering and really popular. What the rise of these alternative solutions mean for them. These big apps are already responding door. Dash ubereats and grubhub are actually now building websites and apps for small restaurants and acting as old school logistics partners to just deliver the food. So they've taken note of restaurants increasing wariness. And they're saying well we wanna keep the restaurants happy and we're seeing this growing movement by restaurants to drive more orders to their websites. So why don't we build these websites for them. We keep the restaurants happy but then we charge them a delivery fee just to deliver that order. So that's what they're doing to also keep the business and to also make sure that they're not completely being cut out by restaurants themselves so what's the takeaway of all. That's what does this all mean for the industry moving forward whether or not this reshape. The food delivery landscape depends on how consumer behavior evolves once things. Go back to normal will. Delivery continued to make a huge part of sales or will in-store dining return and delivery goes back to being a small slice of business. If delivered remains a big part of business restaurants. Might say it's worth my time to deliver myself in that case that might eat into the apps business. If delivery goes to being small slice of business restaurants might say you know what most of our money is coming from in store dining anyway. It's fine even if these apps at taking thirty percent in commissions it's fine. It's not hurting me that much. So a lot of this depends on how consumer behavior shits off to the pandemic and whether or not. It's still worthwhile for restaurants to invest in delivering themselves. All right that there are puerto predate verana things today. thank
Examining the media coverage of the Trump investigation
"Is the media midweek. Podcast i'm bob garfield and it was a tough monday morning for one guy. Been waiting on this decision since the middle of october and now the middle of february. We're finally getting this decision from the supreme court they are saying that the manhattan district attorney cy. Vance can in fact get to former president. Donald trump's tax returns. This is something that has been playing out in the courts for more than a year. Now that there is an oldie but a goodie the intriguing prospect of an allegedly rule breaking tax dodging constitution shredding president on riled prosecutors and fulton county georgia have launched a criminal investigation into former president. Trump's january phone call with the georgia secretary of state where he told secretary reference burger to quote fine. Vote lean. while new york's attorney general is investigating whether or not the trump organization misled investors by inflating assets. We should probably expect that. There will be charges filed against him that he will be indicted on. This case will probably go to trial. I think there's an excellent chance that he will be found guilty and if he is found guilty. There's an excellent chance he'll wind up in prison. Yeah not so fast. Late last year in the new york review writer lawyer and former federal prosecutor uncooked kadoorie reviewed the various arguments including his own ford. The prosecution of donald trump elsewhere he had characterized such as quote insane among his critics. One too many former prosecutors himself included represented in the commentariat to too few defense attorneys. Who know how to find holes in any complex case and three as he told brooke in december. No one is willing to say. We just can't know. I guess it's not a great way to get twitter. Followers or cable news hits but it just fundamentally true. There are lots of things we don't know and facts could change. And you know it's very rare that anyone saying that which brings us back to august. Virus vans says painter last year to door shebang as part of its investigation into president. Trump's business dealings time says. The bank complied with that subpoena. When that news broke a lot of people were strongly suggesting there might be a bank fraud case. What the manhattan. Da is looking at here is overstating the value of your assets to get loans understating the value of your assets when it comes tax time that kind of thing is straightforward textbook fraud. It's much easier for prosecutors to prove those kind of charges. Well just compare the two and then you know. He's in huge trouble. If they're not the same a bunch of people were. This is not just a bunch of people but a bunch of prominent former prosecutors with significant followings on twitter and cable news contributor gigs i was just really taken aback because i founded the fundamentally very misleading basically said. The speculation was insane. That you've done this at doj and it's simply not how fraud investigations are conducted. That is the word used in the wall street journal insane in particular about the suggestion that had been made by former acting solicitor. General under obama. And you'll cut. You'll i think it's totally possible for all of this to come out before the twenty twenty election in terms of new york's prosecutors getting this information on in acting on it and so that was really surprising to be coming from someone who is at least supposed to know better. According to convicted trump lawyer michael cohen trump inflated his assets when it was opportunities so deflated them when that was profitable. And if cohen is right. Doesn't that mean that a prosecutor could just compare one accounting book with another. Find the mismatch numbers. And you know it's over. No i mean. It's a very reasonable supposition. But when you're investing financial fraud case the fact that some documents some numbers may differ from one set to another is often. Just the start of a case you have to figure out why they differ doesn't matter why they differ who prepared them if their lawyers accountants and auditors involved. What did they have to say about. The relevant figures trump did not have a huge business. Right this is something. That i think david farrell hold at the post has been very good at illustrating for the public. Ns fairly small organization but that organization still had lawyers had an accountant. That is going to substantiate complicate any investigation if the lawyers overstepped and they can't prove that this was a conspiracy with which trump was involved. Then he's not liable that's correct. We don't even really know what trump's involvement was in the preparation of any of these figures that would be the crucial question. You'd want emails if they exist and of course he notoriously email. You'd want to know whether he had spoken to people and provided with them potentially with oral instructions now in the case of cohen. That is what he says right. That trump instructed people to falsify these figures but he's not a great witness is not a great witness at all. So you would want people to corroborate that you'd want much more than michael cohen.

If you check out the blog page you'll see some images of the close in real life transported directly to avatars in the video game. This type of advertising is predicted only to rise in twenty twenty one number three product placement. This is thought to be the oldest trick in the book but we predict that. This trend has only just begun from stranger things to suits right down to friends. They're sneaky ways that bronze managed to incorporate their products into popular tv shows and movies.

Placements lasts for five seconds or less product placement is the largest in foster scoring market in the us generating billions of dollars in revenue which will only grow in twenty twenty one.

This is a multi billion dollar market in the advertising industry and it will expand to new heights in twenty twenty one number four nostalgia marketing the world. We live in is not only fast paced but driven strongly by looking towards the future. I also don't need to remind you of the struggles that our planet went through last year from the loss of loved ones due to covid nineteen the loss of houses due to bush fires. The loss of black lives in a fight for equality and so much else. I also can't put into words. The pain that some of us have felt during this year therefore we believe that nostalgia marketing will be boosted to new heights in twenty twenty one studies have shown then style gives our lives a sense of meaning and continuity there by having a positive effect on on mental wellbeing. It brings us a sense of happiness amid chaos and reminds people happier and simpler time thereby encouraging you to buy the product to remind you of all the happy memories nyc pepsi gucci. A mountain jew are a few brands that adopted such a strategy of marketing. And they use this. During twenty twenty. Whilst the wild was trying to navigate itself through unpredictable and unprecedented times for example cheetos included nostalgia marketing in that twenty twenty super bowl advert by introducing cheetos popcorn the advert featured the nostalgic feeling of eating a bag of cheetos up finishing with bright orange fingers. This is something that so many people who are watching the super bowl could relate to as they remember being in the yummy and messy situation when they were younger. We can therefore expect to see some blasts from the past appearing soon on your screens as brands triton transport. You back to the past with some old time favorites. This type of marketing is certainly not new. But walk goes around certainly comes back around and it seems like twenty twenty is where people can use a boost of happiness and a sense of nostalgia number five brand activism purpose driven advertising. We saved the best to lost. Twenty twenty was a year of so many surprises and filled to the brim with certainty and fair for the future. When the world was at a low point many brands were seen taking a stance by voicing their support for those that are struggling. Reebok twitter nyc vocally showed their support for the black lives matter movement through their social media pages. Some brands went even further by inserting brand activism. Into that branding. An even products for example ben and jerry's created the on fudge off future campaign in which they teamed up with the climate council and to fifty dot org australia to encourage the australian government to ditch fossil fuels and use renewable energy. Instead they created a whole new flavor of non dairy ice cream and passing allies it to address the australian prime minister directly saying day. Scott morris make fossil fuels history and a portion of the proceeds from each ice cream was donated to three fifty australia. This was ben. And jerry's way to voice that concern about their is about climate change and to use their power to drive a campaign to pressure the government to invest into one hundred percent renewable energies brand activism. Is trent that will grow to new highs. This year more and more brands are standing up for what they believe. In and this is what makes brands authentic nowadays at noon today we have seen firsthand that campaigns driven by a pappas gain not only ten times more engagement on their platforms but it also shows that browns are committed to

That's that's a great solid a burger and Chili dog fine. But I don't necessarily need that you absolutely right about the onion rings Mitch and the fries as well. I think are very solid. This is what I like about this place is. It could just do the Greek food or it could just do the Crown Bergomi Burger place but it does Bo that lives in both worlds and I admire that about it.

"Let's head back for a second into the late. Eighteen hundreds after almost all the buffalo had been killed and the LAKOTA. People had been confined to reservations in Modern Day. South Dakota. The government eventually delivered herds of live cows but when the LAKOTA mounted horses and hunted the cattle in the ritual way they once hunt the Buffalo. The government was threatened by this show of power after that. They only sent the tribe packaged meat from a nearby slaughterhouse. The tribe didn't accept it instead. They burned the nearby slaughterhouse to the Ground Fast Forward to South Dakota's standing rock in two thousand sixteen as the media followed protests against the Dakota access pipeline carrying oil that was to run through indigenous land endangering the local populations of people animals and water resources and not to mention adding to climate change as the indigenous from all over and their allies were locked in a standoff with riot police. Something miraculous happened the only reason why we're moving. Back to armed with tear-gas right here. Weapons rubber bullets. That's what it takes for them pushes back carry weapons. Because they're scared. What does this mean to you? This traditional land. Manning's everything over there all the buffalo in what was certainly a noble gesture one that enraged Fox News as they declared a war on the Eagle. Barack Obama made the buffalo the first national mammal of the United States the same year as those protests it held a painful irony while hamburgers have represented the dominance hierarchy so precious to colonial Americans history. The Buffalo represents what we cannot imagine any more a world that we take care of one that takes care of us one that we have dominion over but we don't dominate in the end when there's nothing left to take what will be the beauty of America turning away from reality doesn't make it go away but it's true that our brains carry us through it with the maximum amount of comfort. But what is the cost of this comfort and even more so when all is said and done what is the cost of our conquering.

"Subjects in the group showed negative associations with vegetarians mainly because the subjects thought that these people believed that they were better people than meat eaters. This assumed moral superiority and the assumed judgment against the subjects seemed to spur these meters into negative associations. This led the subjects to demonize and ridicule. They're perceived enemy these vegetarians humans. Of course naturally avoid what makes us uncomfortable. We reject thoughts. That could lead to shame or guilt which are two of the worst feelings ever. It's more comfortable to turn to anger to demonize to feel better instantly and take back our position as right and moral again all of us do this instantly every day in a myriad of ways and one psychologist named Brock Bastian who studies the psychology of meat. Eating said quote through the process of dissonance reduction. The apparent immorality of certain behaviors can seemingly disappear other studies have shown pretty unsurprisingly that conservative people tend to eat meat at a considerably higher rate than liberal people. Those with more conservative values were considered more fervent. Proponents of what the psychologists called the dominance hierarchy with animals existing as the bottom rung in the social order of society liberals in contrast seem to have a more egalitarian opinion of the social order and put value on a more communal way of living regardless of political and social opinions. Though colonized America has never had a symbiotic equal relationship to cows they have existed from the very beginning almost exclusively to exploit maybe on a larger scale to question. The place of animals is to question the dominance hierarchy itself to question the supremacy of white masculine. America in its traditions to question. The morality of the American pecking order to question. The very heart of what a colonized America has always meant like the natural ignorance around the factory farming industry. We all have a hugely difficult time. Actually facing this rising threat of climate change. There is nothing comfortable about floods. Fires droughts hurricanes and much loss by estimate the meat industry accounts for about twenty percent of all greenhouse gas emissions. This includes the vast amount of land used to grow crops and feed the animals. We eat accounting for one hundred. Twenty seven point four million acres compared to the seventy seven million acres. That actually grow food that US. Humans eat fifty. Nine percent of all land on earth is used for animal. Production sixty percent of all mammals on earth are being raised for eating with ninety nine percent of those raised in factory farms deforestation for pasture space not only gets rid of plants and trees that actually absorb our carbon but releases greenhouse gases that have become trapped in the previously bio-diverse soil ninety one percent of all rainforests loss since nineteen seventy is currently used for meat production accounting for all the resources that it takes to grow beef. It takes six hundred and sixty gallons of water to make one hamburger. I know I could rattle off these statistics all day. Which by the way are insanely difficult to sift through but one thing regardless of the study is clear our beef and all our meat and dairy comes with a cost. We don't WANNA face. There's another victim of the green ice cream. Livestock will be banned in. So what are they saying? We're going to ban hamburgers. Americans are never going to have a barbecue at Flimflam. No more state government forced. Veganism is an order. We're starting to hear more and more of this conservative outrage over Alexandria. Oh Cossio Cortez and her green new deal with trump and other outspoken alarmist pundits evoking the war on burgers similar. Straw man buzz phrase to the war on Christmas that we cover during the holidays. This new perceived American oppression was a direct response to the green new deal document that was essentially symbolic in nature. It lays out some of those terrifying truths around climate change and the changes we need to make in make Su. The document calls out the meat industry as a huge contributor to climate change and apparently it's an affront ironically much of the production of American beef rests on the shoulders of seriously mistreated undocumented. Immigrants literally trudging through blood easily replaced without compensation. If they're injured or insubordinate just like upton sinclair once wanted us to see all the way back in the early nineteen hundreds. Donald Trump has recently led a number of publicized crackdowns on undocumented immigrants in slaughter houses. Those who've long been a part of the meat industry making up now an estimated twenty five percent of that workforce and so we have a large portion of America demanding beef while condemning. Those who do the truly awful work. It takes to hand it over for me. Writing this episode and working on this coming season has been a chance to confront the ways. I process my own guilt. The ways that I myself. Ignore hard truths with my defense mechanisms. I don't necessarily disbelieve the realities of the world but admittedly I am prone to a fuck it mentality that polishing the brass on the titanic. But it's all going down man fight club in hopeless despondency but to. I have to remember that. The climate change that our nation causes the climate. Change that on the most local level. We contribute to doesn't actually affect me the way it affects those in developing nations. Those who also depend on meet to get enough nutrition in their diets there serious barriers to living a sustainable life. More Elitist Vegetarians. Vegans don't always consider things like food. Deserts places that don't have access to grocery stores with fresh produce. This reality is disproportionately true for low income urban and rural communities. It's all very complicated. And there's no easy answer. There are definitely ways to argue in favor of meat because meat is the best choice. It's because of the system we've created with all things considered especially the privilege I have. I'm learning that flat out. Denying climate change and doing nothing about it. Aren't that different after all the changes. I'm personally trying to make our pretty recent. Sometimes I make choice that creates dissonance. One that I- morally disagree with but right now I'm trying to stop and think trying to fight against what the defense mechanisms in my brain are trying to do. I think there's value in that regardless of what I choose to do. This process helps me make a more conscious choice the next time. Of course I'd love for you to eat less meat and dairy. It's the easiest way to start combating climate change on a personal level. Also Americans on average eat three times as much protein as we need. So it's not that much of a loss. It's just the breaking of a habit where our dollars go matters the politicians. We vote for matter. And at the most base level interrogating our own choices might be the most important thing of all but when it comes to meet my brain in your brain also have the extra task of fighting against our American stories. White Castle gave us our clean cut white boys in their white painted monuments. Mcdonald's gave us the happy clown handing out happy meals and a happy painless world but first Buffalo Bill and the rest of rugged America cleared the way for all the cultural symbols in the obsession with beef that we have today. The Manley Cowboy has carried through the ages as dad's poke at a circle of cow for twenty minutes and a silly apron under a bright blue sky but rolled up in that. Were me tangle of ground? Beef is a story of conquering a story of nationalism. A story taking what we want without feeling discomfort. This essentially is the beauty of America. That my fellow camper was talking about..

Three Ronald McDonald would become the silly and lovable clown that invited kids into a cartoon world where burghers were little bursts of colorful joy. Mega corporations continue to create bright fantasies now for children who were a rapidly growing market by nineteen seventy-nine. Mcdonald's created the product that marked many of our childhoods the happy meal that place toys of the moment beside hunks of ground beef inside a box made from a smile by the mid nineteen eighties. Mcdonald's were opening their iconic and admittedly awesome play places all over the nation and as a fun little aside as the Internet exploded in the late. Nineteen Ninety S. McDonald's invented online clubs for kids with one character telling the children on the other side of the screen. And I kid you not quote. Ronald McDonald is the ultimate authority on everything.

But I'm not super educated in fabrics. All I know is I've never been able to find sheets feel perfect. One of the best things about attitude sheets is they're clean.

You're not gonNA regret it when you sleep like a baby and now back to the show. During the second clean living movement of the nineteen seventies after some resistance mainstream Americans were inspired by the hippies food choices that often included a plant based Diet but some hippies took a more extreme approach news reports referred to them as domestic terrorists these mildly militant animal rights groups like the Animal Liberation Front. And it's true that animal rights activists were getting more aggressive. We're getting more dedicated to making. Americans see the real treatment of animals. These groups used creative tactics to free animals and keep them from harm and this led to mass anger and mass American. I rolls the news reported on them as unhinged unreasonable on American hysterical. Of course it wasn't the rising calls against animal abuse. That made beef suspect yet again. It was the burgeoning scientific reports. And the media's coverage of red meat's link to heart disease and obesity the decline in beef consumption was swift just as it was after the beef scandal of eighteen ninety eight. The hamburgers image took several other hits throughout the next twenty years in one thousand nine eighty one. It was revealed that a large import of Australian beef was not one hundred percent cow but contained traces of horse meat. That horrified the American Public Burger. King did discover that their supplier had tainted meat. But for the most part. It was a simple panic in typical fashion. This horse meat. Urban Legend began to incorporate almost all major fast food chains with Jack in the box announcing Jack in. The box does not use horsemeat. Mcdonald's saying McDonald's. Usa has never used horse meat in our hamburger patties with Wendy's boasting when he's only uses fresh one hundred percent North American beef in all restaurants throughout North America. We do not use any horsemeat hamburger. Pr took another hit in nineteen ninety-three when Jack in the boxes famous E. coli scare rocked the fast food nation with kids getting sick. May I note just a short drive from my childhood home in Washington state the contamination culprit a new promotion by Jack in the box called the Monster Burger? Which ironically used the slogan so good. It's scary because of the influx of customers demanding. The new big juicy cheap monster Burger. The cooks were moving too fast and not cooking the burgers completely. The bacteria called E. coli killed four children and sickened six hundred a majority of them under ten years old. One hundred and seventy eight other victims were left with permanent injury including kidney and brain damage ten years later. Mad Cow. Disease A short-lived media and public panic that reared its head in the US with rampant stories of mad cows swallowing their own tongues to death. I wondered if it was possible to choke on my own tongue as my friends had told me it was on the playground. These stories of haunted beef of the potential for personal and familial harm contributed to the rising of the popularity of chicken but the burger remained a potent symbol of masculinity with chicken considered a far earlier. Meet fast food. Advertising still plays on the strong association of Meat Manliness and the subconscious in somewhat similar ways to those subliminal McDonald's golden breasts an ad that ran for Arby's twenty eighteen hinted aggressively at the symbolism of breasts too but in a Raunchier less motherly way showing women's hands holding to Burgers as if against her chest with the tagline. We're about to reveal something you'll really drool over. Even more ridiculously Burger King described their new hoagie. Shaped Burger asked long juicy and flame grilled and then had it hovering in front of a woman's red parted lips in two thousand and five Carl's junior aired ads featuring Perez Hilton washing a shiny Bentley in her bikini taking large juicy bites from an enormous hamburger with the ad ending in her famous trademark phrase. That's hot it's likely true that eating meat and the proteins it provided which began in hominids species about two point six million years ago contributed more than anything else to the development of our modern brains. There isn't much doubt about this about the importance of meat in the human story but our relationship to meet is not what it was hundreds of thousands of years ago. Not by a long shot. I decided while writing this episode that it wouldn't be fair for me to cover this topic if I wasn't willing to look directly at what I have ignored for pretty much my whole life. I watched those videos of the horrors of factory farming. We all dread catching a glimpse of sometimes shown us in a flash by a PITA PAMPHLET LEFT at a bus. Stop Jarring seen in a documentary that you didn't expect this time. I made a conscious choice to watch them for like an hour. I consider myself tough sometimes to a fault but I cry big tears. My stomach hurt for hours and at one point I felt like I couldn't breathe. It was all worse than I ever thought. Seeing it was so much different than hearing about it. And don't worry I'm not going to describe it here. As we grow into adults we all understand at least on some level that the animals we eat our somewhere far away suffering under the conditions of ill regulated factory farms. Lots of people would say that we just don't care but I don't think that's the case. There are so many ways that help us forget that face to face. We love these animals and we would hate to see them suffer. Most of us would stop someone from hitting a piglet or crushing chick if we were present for it our pets are like our family members and any idea of harm coming to them can bring even the manly men into tears. But the truth is that pigs and cows are just a sentient just as feeling just as real as our dogs and cats. We aren't monsters. We are just naturally programmed to care about what's in front of us what we see. Our evolution has not caught up to modern technology. Our brains aren't program still aren't prepared for the haunting magical uniquely human knowledge that somewhere far away from us there is suffering vegetarians and vegans. Who make up about five percent of citizens still have a pretty bad rap in America. Our culture has by and large. Since the nineteen seventies characterized. Animal activists is militant angry. Unreasonable OFTEN FEMINISTS LESBIANS WITH MALE. Vegetarians and vegans being seen as effeminate as lacking an essential quality of manhood demonstrated perfectly by the all right slur. One I find quite darling soy. I don't care what you guys have to say. I'll eat whatever I want to eat because the high love meat I love. I love thousand. Four Austin so damned good. I love cooking on the KRILL. Because that's what makes me a real main among other awesome thing I will do this. I go to one of these vegan. Protest I'll take some ground beef.

"The Red Man was pressed from this part of the West. He's likely no more to return to the banks of Red River where seldom if ever there flickering campfires burn European cattle continue to multiply in the south especially during the civil war when men left their ranches to fight returning to a shock of cows. Their numbers suddenly reaching five million because of the new flood of Supply. Beef became very cheap in the south and ranchers were going broke but soon the answer revealed itself a great deal of cows were needed to feed the growing populations in the expanding midwest eventually scores of rugged cowboys wrangled their cattle driving them hundreds of miles learning as they went how to best control. The herds as these cowboys in their cattle came pouring into Chicago a handful of companies immediately jockey to control the market largely by exploiting immigrant labor and the local ranchers that had previously raised their cows for the local community. These meat packing companies set up the terrifying slaughter houses. We know today that killed millions of cows every year in what amounted to the first industrial production lines a structure that would later seriously influence Henry Ford's and then later the fast food industry. These companies began using additives. And then sending this meet via train all over the country expanding the market these companies were no longer interested in local beef and all the while getting rich as hell this. Industrialization of meat meant that people no longer relied on trusted butchers. In their communities they would no longer come into contact with the animals. They ate instead. The meat arrived. Pre cut the way. We see meat packaged on ice. At the grocery store the mass production of beef meant that high and low classes alike could afford it for newcomers. It was a taste of this mythical America. The land of plenty where anyone could become a steak stuffed fat cat. Letters would pass between nations with correspondences like every day. You must be kidding. It can't be true with its beginnings as a tough cowboy. Fantasy beef was the only prepared meal that was at least in part. A man's domain women were constantly reprimanded and mocked for choosing the wrong cut from a butcher or cooking the stakes incorrectly with a New York Herald article reprinted and several other newspapers. Saying that while there are plenty of men professional amateur. Who can cook a beefsteak? It is an accomplishment which can be claimed by but a few women more after this snap talking about shudder the horror movie streaming service which is right up my alley you got horror.

Let's watch some horror movies together and now back to the show. The more conservative forces of America began to make alliances between the government and the rapidly growing business industry that lasts this day one such do came during the Spanish American war of eighteen ninety eight when these companies wanted to ship out there beef for the lowest possible cost and without proper refrigeration under President William McKinley the US army stationed in Cuba was provided chemically adulterated. Canned beef rations that merely poisoned the army into defeat. The soldiers rapidly fell ill too serious food poisoning that. I thought to be caused by malaria or yellow fever in reality the weakened immune systems of the men made the diseases much worse. Some of the meat had rotted in the cans turning putrid. It was often described as embalmed with one army medical officer describing it like this. It looked well but had an odor similar to that of a dead human body after being injected with Formaldehyde but the final nail in the coffin of beefs early rain came when author Upton Sinclair published his famous Nineteen O. Six expose of the Chicago Slaughterhouse Industry. Though he had desired to shine a socialist light on labor abuses faced by the majority immigrant workers his descriptions of the horrifying conditions faced by the underpaid and sometimes mutilated employees. Were largely ignored. It was the description of rats running inside. The machines meets contaminated with tuberculosis body. Parts crushed along with beef that got the public's attention as Upton Sinclair. Put it himself quote I aimed at the public's heart and by accident I hit it in the stomach. His reports contributed to what would become the pure food and drug act of Nineteen. O seven and from then on the quality of beef would become standardized and allegedly safe but it would take the public a while to trust. The government and meat industry's again and beef would decline in popularity at least for the time being the early version of the hamburger was mostly associated with lower class. Hangouts like circuses and Fairs but by the nineteen twenties the very first fast food chain white castle repackaged beef for a still skeptical general public hoping that middle class clients might be persuaded to trust again using white as their primary design color founder. Walter Anderson also opened up the kitchen to the public with burgers being cooked right before their eyes white castle would aim for a many American immaculate fantasy which included the trusted faces of their brand. The spreading franchises were instructed to hire young white men between the ages of nineteen and twenty four. They were required to pass a physical and their histories including family backgrounds were examined for good behavior. After they passed these rigorous tests. They were all required to wear the same uniform. White shirt black tie and clean white always unstained apron. They demanded no jewelry hair and fingernails trimmed short and a clean shaven face at all times and then came the famous white paper hats which all employees were required to wear and then still stain obsessed. They were made to wear disposable paper aprons to white castle provided endless white napkins all produced by paper manufacturing company that they themselves brand is a subsidiary it worked and white castles popularity exploded. It seemed that beef was back and boy was looking good right from wrong. A World War. Two left the country starving for good news and in a booming postwar economy. You could say that this happiness was manufactured. Four Americans fast food became clean. Predictably uniform each location easy to trust in its simplicity with middle-class teenage car culture exploding in the affluent one thousand nine hundred fifties car hops walked or roller skated out two groups of friends laughing and cars or lovers cuddling up next to each other like white castle. These workers were originally clean. Cut White men but after World War. Two forced women to replace men in their previous jobs. They became the primary car hops even after the men returned. It was clear that the women were attracting more customers likely because they were often required address like cheerleaders skating joyfully out to deliver the meat. That don't worry. They didn't cook but that meet sure. Looked good in the hands of a beautiful woman under the growing influence of psychologist Sigmund Freud. The fast food industry adopted the theories of the subconscious using advertising methods. That certainly last through to the present day. Burgers were manly. Yes but they were also safe and dependable. When McDonald began questioning the Golden Arches? That had become their trademark logo. A psychologist slash design consultant gave his Freudian opinion..

"Which is exactly what we're gonNA do something slightly different We're going to play away. One of Y'alls voice memos and then row that from there And Yes holiday themed but may be related because it all started with a sustainability question that was sent in by our listener. Dj Coal Well and it goes like this a Malayan kyw which is better real or fake Christmas trees I grew up with real trees and my fiance and I have gotten real trees for our apartment every year because we like them. But I've seen some nice looking fakes and I'm wondering if that's a better choice. It seems like real trees would be better environmentally since they provide all the benefits that trees do while they're still growing. That said real trees are also heavier. Which means more energy to ship and unsold trees are wasted since they can't just be put into storage until next year I'd also expect? Real trees probably requires significantly more water to produce. I'll probably keep getting real trees unless I find out there truly awful but it would be nice to know some more about the impact of my choice. Yes so nobody asked me here. But I'm I'm team real tree all the way justin just But here's what we did. Sam Anderson Producer director store near and Tony Wagner producer director and digital guy and also cookie Baker and You know hoodwinked of hosts with the cookies with the flowers and the bugs hoodwink went. Went went to five years now and he's going to tell us what he thought. Sam Yeah yes so there's more than you might think but I did go on a little trip I took a drive. I went to a place called. pelter Pines in Brea California. It's a super cute. Like cut down yourself place. which is you know the tradition that I grew up with going to do it on our own own family? And so They're a bit of a Christmas Tree Dynasty. There've been so in Christmas tree since the sixties I spoke with Beth pelzer and I asked her to make the case for the real trees. What's more sustainable real Christmas tree or an artificial in a real Christmas tree was an artificial tree when you're done and tired of it and you want to get a new one? What are you GONNA do? You're GONNA throw it away in landfill. It is not biodegradable. A A real Christmas tree is it's not only that but it's the fact that the Christmas trees are producing oxygen to so if you're covering up everything with concrete Crete. You're you're taking away the natural substance. It's going up and helping US brave victory. Just you're not going to smell the pine smell when when you walk into your home. It just doesn't do it amen. But to be fair a slightly biased perspective obviously in perspective. So you know I mean from her like she. That's my perspective. I'm believe me couldn't be more on the same page here but I'm I'm trying to trying to be neutral. Well so we'll we'll make the case for the real trees and we'll we'll talk about the real ones you know. They do have a lot of benefits. A Christmas tree farm is like kind of like like a forest. You know not really but they do create you know the carbon and they create oxygen right You got animals yellow critters living in their a deer and rabbits and whatever so there's all these benefits to like just the actual Place of the farm itself you they also grow them on like these rolling hillsides sides which aren't great for other types of crops so that gets a big benefit for the farmers because they can grow Christmas trees where they wouldn't be able to have productive land otherwise K.. So that's the WPRO and so I did WANNA talk to customers about why they were out there. Buying you know real trees so we're GONNA play some of that tape and then we'll hear from some guy who reviewed the victories so we're going to play a clip. This is one of the customers. I spoke to Helzer Pints. Why did you choose to cut down your tree mostly nostalgia I think? Just it's a fun thing and you don't really get to cut trees down anymore. So and so. Have you ever thought about the sustainability of real tree versus a fake tree. Honestly not really if you had to guess what. What do you think would be better for the environment which one I would think a real tree? Because we're not it's not plastic is not being made or causing pollution and their re growing Wingham. So so. So where's the fig tree thing and so you know a lot of people say okay. Yeah the FIG tree. It's a big piece of plastic. It's going to end up in a landfill. It really boils down to is. How long are you going to use this thing? Are you going to buy the forty dollar cheapo tree at Walmart and toss it after like three years or are you going to go for what he calls the Cadillac of Christmas Christmas trees the thousand dollar guy from awesome for which is a thing you can spend more than a thousand dollars on an artificial Christmas tree right and so if you're if you're going that route that might be the more sustainable route right because you're going to be using it over and over again the you'll save money eventually. If you're buying Christmas tree average price is about for the real ones you know seventy five eighty bucks but for the fake ones. It's going to be you know it's going to be more upfront. But you you will save some money all right so this being make me smart mart. Let's get smart with an expert. You call one. What do you say we did? Call Up. Tim Heffernan He's a senior staff writer wire cutter which does consumer reports he's done probably the most exhaustive review. You are official Christmas trees. Here's what he had to say. Maybe the way to put it is an artificial. Christmas tree is a fairly significant purchase of something. That's going to have a fairly significant environmental cost. Most of them are last a very long time on the Balsam Hill I could I could see thirty years. I mean you'd have to take care of it. You know store it properly probably break it down properly. Every year probably makes people think about the environmental cost of artificial. Christmas trees is that it's probably going to be the biggest and most obvious this piece of plastic that you're ever going to buy right And it's sitting there in your living room in her thinking. Gee is definitely need to do that. In what have I done but again verses uses the the amount of gas burn over the course of the year type number gifts. You're putting under the tree. Those are kind of smaller everyday expenses that you can kind of. Just forget about those for most people are I think are going to add up to a much. Greater impact than artificial tree itself is awash. I think well yeah totally I feel like I feel like that was dammed them with faint praise for the real tree. But I'm taking it as a wholehearted endorsement of the real not. Yeah it's fast. Let me let me do a little pole here right so we see how many people that we have in the controller one two three four four people right there people sitting on the floor Eland Eland plus you Molly Malaya real treat. People Right Yes yes always a show of hands real trees also also interesting and the other three of you are fakery. People really shaking his head sheepishly or nodding his his head sheepishly for the fake tree. Wow all right but yeah first year. We've done or thirty years dude. GOT TO KEEP IT thirty years. That's all I'm saying. Do actually the artificial trees though eighty percent get artificial seriously yes some people say the numbers skewed. You'd because that's like all the trees that are presented it might include like storefronts and stuff like that but that is the number that is like eighty percent of people have artificial trees citizen email. What are you just do it? One word leather outweighs all of my attempts at real tree because she puts up like twelve artificial trees every year she she owns like twelfth okay. I'm embarrassed by Andersen's mysteries. Tony Wagner. Thank you so much for the cookies. And the work on the Christmas tree and holy cow all of which is to say this. Yes what are we saying molly would. Oh this is a is a. We're well the producers. Have done all the work and now we're taking a break that's right we. This show will technically be on a break for a few weeks over the holiday. But while we're gone you will still have episodes. We're going to re spin updated updated versions of some of our favorite episodes from two thousand nineteen. So it will not be could. You'RE GONNA WANNA listen. There's like predictions in. There is new material in there and response of some of our favorite interview so stay tuned for that..

"Designed and engineered your piece of meat whether it's plant based or otherwise How much good are we really doing? I guess my question is what's the tipping point right. Because he can't be the upside scale the economic spectrum doing us. I think if you're talking about trying to make this accessible to people of more modest means because honestly yes there are there are more billions of people of modest means than there are billions of people of of substantive means right and so we gotta get everybody on the same train. Absolutely I I think the difficulty is that when it technologies emerge. One of the things that happens is that there are adopters. And they're naysayers and so oh and they're the people often who are naysayers are those whose livelihoods are being threatened by the emergence of this new technology so when you hear people in farming farming states people who have been cattle ranchers or Other kinds of Meat Producers for generations which is an extremely dreamily an operating extremely honorable. Kind of way. What you're basically saying is we don't like you? We don't like what you're doing and we're going to find a new way to get to to the consumer what you've been doing for generations so there there are lots of Ethical issues that we need to think about When we talk about these alternative alternative protein replacements that don't simply revolve around animal welfare or carbon footprints but also revolve around? What are we gonNA do about the the people who already are making these kinds of foods and I think we make a mistake? If we're thinking about this as an or kind of question you're going to eat eight plant based or cell cultured meat or nothing. I think it's actually you're going to eat those and you're going to eat what is currently on the market because the cost right now too high. The technology's not well enough developed at least in the cell culture Meat Component that. You can scale this at an affordable rate even even the meat replacement like I have gotten a little bit hooked on the beyond me Hotta talion sausages. They're delicious tastes like Theresa Areso but without the grossness factor. But I don't buy the very. I mean they're like nine fifty for a pack of four sausage or something like that you know it's but but I think that that is sort of a pretty standard path in technology expensive I and cheaper Labor Right and then you know. We still don't know how to do the full life cycle nickel analysis because nobody's gone completely scale so everything that we do. Those analyses is based on uncertainties. Assuming that this is going to scale up to the ten thousand liters stage or the ten thousand pound stage in this way versus that way and then there are the externalities associated with the economics of just generating that whole product market. Do you think this is the moment though. Is this a tipping point moment. I think we're right at the precipice of the a tipping point I do because The initial acceptance has been high. The technology is developing well There are more and more companies getting into this space. I think last year there were I don't know twenty something Cell Cultured Meat Companies. And now they're in the forties That's and there's a lot out of money going into this a lot of venture money a lot of full philanthropic funds A lot of people with lots of money like Bill Gates and br Richard Branson are all getting into this field and and helping fund some of these things and there's a lot of excitement. I mean this is. This is not a product that the being developed by baby boomers. You know it's A. It's a different generation. Gabe who are who are okay boomer. Yeah who are developing this kind of stuff often. It's just it's so exciting to be around these people because they're so enthusiastic and so smart and trying to figure out lots of interesting kinds of things but you know you do have to think about the flip side as well. I do want to ask you. I feel like while I have you. Everyone's going to want to know the answer to this question. Because there has been controversy in some of it could be propaganda about what is in beyond me and impossible meat and I was. I was hoping that you could help us understand it. Like what is the deal with the PEA protein and is there indeed a bunch. Are there indeed a bunch of chemicals in there that make them less healthy than meet might be well I. I'm sorry I have to put on my scientists hat and say that pea protein chemical Okay but we go given given the protein is actually a chemical in is made up of lots of chemical. There are lots lots of You know there are lots of processing aids and there are flavored ingredients and additional vitamins. That are put in tune to make what is essentially. Ah Tofu tastes like me right so whether you do it. Afterwards by dressing your meat with spices and whatever your Tofu with spices to make it taste just a little more like me or you do it in the process of making these things. That's you know that's kind of pardon the pun chicken and egg kind of thing. Ah Koy that and it was I I thought no this is too good to pass up. So yeah yeah gotta run so Yeah I think I think the question of what something whether it's something that's good for you or not depends on how you're going to look at that question regulatory Tori Agency might say. How is this different from any food that we dour any components of foods that we eat now and is it as safe as food that we now or they may say hi? This is amy an entirely new component or new growth factor. That we haven't seen before at a particular though so you have to have premarketing approval for it and I'm just talking talking about the United States but there are lots of regulatory agencies around the world who are trying to wrap themselves around this. And how do we can. How do we do this and So no one has actually done a whole bunch of nutritional studies yet that have been published. I'm sure there's some underway But I guess the the point is that if you're going to eat everything do you eat everything all in one serving or do you eat it out of you know. Over the course of the day right Luther Reserve Danko is a research affiliate in the program on emerging technologies at MIT. She is the one who knows all about this topic. Thanks so much for coming back on my pleasure. Sure and it's great to meet you both care all right so I think I'm going to go with the sausages I. I will try the sausages. How about that? Who they're super red? Okay can I get them at Ralph's do we think thank you. Oh yeah okay. They're I mean they're everywhere. I get a little bigger around the corner or they have mental foods. I'm sure they haven't met Ralph's. I gotta say like. They're my favorite thing with eggs and then they're really good in pasta just like just like pulling off a grilling eaten. MD after whatever anyway. Yeah do that too all right. We're GONNA do that. Oh look and I got stuff. Oh Jeez God so we have crooked powder to let well so yeah this is what we say. Open the box open. The box butts is a hundred percent pure cricket powder now no doc thing now Sam Sam was in this like it was like. Don't forget the bugs on minor like bit go now. Are these wait. Somebody told me. These aren't cricket cricket flour cookies. Tony's like Oh Sam gave up all right so I have to kind of DO I. It looks like it has live crickets in it. I'm holding this up all right. I got coffee. I'm glad you said that their cookies in here because this Alexa container that could contain a cricket. Oh my goodness all right so I'm going to read this. I'm just GonNa read this read. This is going to take take your ready. It's a surprise taste when we were planning this episode Marketplace Special Projects Producer Lives Mills suggested in more realistic. Humans will likely insects is folded into food rather than just munching munching on. Hold bugs which is basically the way you get kids the vegetables you wrap it up in like some kind of treat anyway so more. Appetizing sustainable added protein. So Sam acquired some cricket flour which we have to Some here two batches of Christmas cookies normal sugar cookie recipe and one with a third of flowers talk pure ground crickets guy. Has the packing played in the studio with him. Molly has three beach in a tupperware worshiped or give them a try. Saving Tastes Great. So I don't know which is which right or do you guys know which is which is there are controls it. Well somebody has to. There has to be controlled right. Somebody has to know. I'm a newest doomed. Him that the ones that are kind of Greenish Brown cricket color may be the cricket flour while I don't think I don't think crooked color corresponds to color of flower. I'm just is like totally normal. Like a ground up bug when it'd be Kinda Brown so you know what's going to put these out in the kitchen later and we're not gonNA put any money on this afternoon when we sent an all all staffed by the way you eat bugs in an actual cricket legs. I've done it. Yeah there's a restaurant on Choi Phone I'm GonNa step away from it damn and try the ones that just look like regular sugar cookies All right now when we're on survival training we were narrating everything so bugs. Oh bugs snakes you name it and then there was rich. Palumbo woke up in the town next to me in the next morning and said Denny's Grand Slam breakfast. I WANNA goddamn Denny's Grand Slam. I feel like this is such A. This is such a representative presentative example of what happens when you try to tell a story like fancy Latin American Restaurant in downtown Oakland and they garnished with cricket legs and it was lovely and I just as you know took my car there and then I came home and then like Oh that one time that I had to live in the jungle. Come on in my underwear with my muscle car and the snake in Garnish. It with some bugs that I picked up tiny little snake all right so that was the regular yummy. Whatever Patrick comes now China's dark-colored I'm GonNa later no can't tell the difference no chant? Yeah I know I'm just a little gamy. It's a little gaming gaming. I'm just saying look at the color difference here. I'm holding these up to my camera. You'll be able to see this on youtube later just. FYI If you go to ut make me smart tapings may be tape. Ah Lately Saltier Line. Actually we said Yeah because the Flower Tony. I'm not doing that now. Doing I didn't get a bag of flour some aftertaste but I think it could be sprinkled things on top of the cookies. Well I'm getting the after you know. What does all powered suggestion? We're talking ourselves aftertaste. That's really are. I know exactly. I don't like that after taste but I actually am not sure that it's actually just the weird chemical comical thing of the sprinkles all right. I'm going to have some cold stale. That'll be shabbir coffee on the water. Almonds Coleman Stale but now I don't have cricket taste in my mouth I mean I will say Kudos to you producers and I can now understand why there was some urgency about me getting package today. Also we will get all kinds of all kinds of emails and tweets from people who will say essence grow the hell up right. I got the I guess. I didn't come on Palumbo. There is a toothpaste also. Okay.

"And your new new new new. Oh and I said I could A few bars but no you know I did that because I'm compassionate human being. It doesn't even matter it. The thing is it doesn't even matter because all you have to do is say it and it's over. Have some damn disciplined. Would you please Everyone into Mali would. I'm Kai Ryssdal. This of course is making me smart where we get together about tech the economy and culture and and as we look around here none of us is a smart as all of us and this is one of those episodes that sort of hits on all three of those things tech economy and culture. Yeah I know hat-trick if if you've been to Burger King or Dunkin donuts or even the grocery store lately you have noticed a new addition to the menu when you meet replacement and also if you've been watching things like the stock market Specifically though you've probably seen the beyond Burger and the impossible burger everywhere everywhere these days in fact I can tell you that my son and his dad arrived at my house just the other night with a taste test ozone yeah. They brought the lake whatever. The one is from Burger. They impossible walker and a regular one. We don't see let's say the results totally because I have partaken but The reason we're doing this is basically because of the planet media super-popular. It's a huge industry. It's amazingly amazingly popular in America. But it's also not great for the planet. It's tug grade for the animals in question But the thing that's happening is that we as consumers in this economy and globally to are carrying more about our food where it comes from and what it means and so we have wound up this thing called a meat replacement industry which is moving. Molly was talking about beyond meat. is is a publicly traded company. Impossible's getting there there with billions of dollars They are In Evermore places I frankly did not know. They were in Dunkin donuts. I didn't actually even know Dunkin there because they thought they had done it anyway. So that's what we're doing today. Donate replacements today. Yes we're going to talk about that we're going to and it is not without controversy. Of course the meat replacement industry whether it's pushback from the industry or questions about what is actually in there. So we're going to talk about Plant Bay substitutes lab grown meat and cultured meat. And we will even talk about that other key protein source everyone forgets about but as coming our way edible insects ax. Doing it all really noon. Then do we have to all right. Anyway Molly Night We can blather about this for a little while. But there's an actual oh expert on the other end of the phone WHO's GonNa help us through this? Her name is Loretta. Rudin Co.. She's a research affiliate at the program on emerging technologies up at MIT Thanks for coming on my pleasure. Interesting to be talking about technology when it comes to meet it's the first thing that struck me it is indeed And and it's interesting that you should bring that up because depending on where you sit and how you look at sources of food you can see that some people think that it's A very low tech kind of business and other people think it's a very high tech kind of business and the reality is that depending on what it is you're eating or growing or processing it can be either either or both at the same time. Yeah and we have talked a little bit before actually the rest of US guest on marketplace tech talking about these technologies and how the growth happens but I think let's go back to the money for just a minute. How big of an industry do you think meet? Replacement has become an potentially could become. How big a deal Asus This is a really big deal So I tend to look at the market basically a as being bifurcated and then a little bit more on the other side. So there's there's the plant based or replacements for meat and then there's going to be the CULTURED MEAT OR LAB GROWN MEAT OR CLEAN MEAT or whatever for people are calling it component and. Then there's going to be other sources of protein as you mentioned the insect edible insects and they have their pluses losses and minuses But we already know based on how the market and the public has reacted to plant based meat products. That that it's going to be huge beyond me. Opened at sixty something went up to about two hundred fifty than everybody sold their shares. Dropped down to the last few few Weeks it's been sort of hovering in the mid seventies which is probably word where it might need to be based on sale totally respect how respectable label totally respect Impossible is is not on the market yet but there are lots of legacy companies that have been baking plant based meat replacements for a very long time and I guess part of the question is is this going to be a rising tide that raises all boats or is this going to be riptide. That's screened get rid of a lot of the legacy players. I don't know what the answer is to then or so. Can we get to the taste test. Here Molly yes okay so I recently I tried the impossible Walker is the one they have at Burger King. We all there were five of us in house. My brother was over in my sister-in-law. Everybody tried it and everyone failed the taste test really so the retail raw thought or whatever yeah in fact we all identified the impossible oppor as the real burger. Wow Yep I mean they really. That must be Lorenzo. Some part of the reason why this is working because really you. You know these what these it's not like a Veggie Burger where you are. You're eating some sort of being thing and you know it. It really is attempting to replace me. That's that's a bit of a shift right it is is indeed and I think what The people who are Trying to make a business out of these things doing not appealing to the Vegetarians. Vegans but appealing to everybody else sometimes. The term flexible -Tarian is used. I don't happen to like that term. I like omnivore people who eat everything and if you're concerned what about me intake and the impact of me on the hoof on the planet then this could be an extremely attractive alternative but there are the taste test is really the interesting. The good food institute which is a not for profit organization that is responsible for a lot of the Regulatory I wouldn't call it. Lobbying per se but responsible for a lot of the Research being done. It's if influencing broad it's a big umbrella organization anyway. They have an annual meeting every year. And the thing. That's great about going to the meeting as you get tased everything that people are making. Because they're hot and cold running meat replacement products at every break and all kinds of forms. You can have a well. No they're fine. I mean you can and have like a meat bulletin. Asian meet baller. You can have a breakfast burger or you can have something that is another kind of mints and so they do taste most of them taste really really good. Okay we can we talk plant-based replacements versus lab grown replacements. Because they're not the same the thing in in difficulty in cost in in all of these things I have that right that's correct absolutely so Plant based products basically take A plant crop that we have been eating for a long time and through various modifications or technological changes turn plant can't products into something that looks like and tastes like meat by the addition of various flavorings and processing the plant protein into a form. I'm that looks like me. The thing that's different about lab-grown me And perhaps that's not really the best way of doing talking about it because it's done it's fermentation on a large scale not on the lap scales the same way that we use fragmentation for example to make beer is is that it comes from cells from animals. Yeah yeah you know so It's not appetizing. Because if you're thinking about no you have to keep appetizing. That's the thing big vats of Gu that will eventually become meat. I hate to be that guy but come on right. Bet where's the winter or worse than slaughterhouse. Yeah well yeah I guess but look. Here's the deal. And Fair Fair enough. But Look Upton Sinclair aside. We've become a culture to slaughter houses right and yes. There's a rising awareness and has been for decades now of of the horrible way that we process entreat Food on the hoof. But that's different in. I'm going to say the consumers I then a big VAT of Goo well I think we've all been through the pink slime Episode and we think we need to go there so maybe we should like refrain from the go ahead. Let's start in the lab. Let's start and look up so one of the things that's really interesting about this field is that it's very similar to regenerative medicine in some ways. you basically start with a cell and you want to make a tissue or an organ that does What the larger organism would have done so you basically have a cell that is used to be a muscle cell and then you have to talk to it with chemicals and until it to become a cell? That hasn't decided what it's going to be and and then you talk to it with other chemicals Growth factors normal growth. Factors that you would find in the body of people or any other organism in this case animal And ask those cells to become please muscle cells or fat it sells or connective tissue and Have them grow in the laboratory according to How you culture them and this is is not as easy as it sounds? It's very very difficult to get those Growth factors in the appropriate ratios and the appropriate Timing so that you can make something that is either all muscle cell but also expresses some fatty acids that gives it the right mouth feel or you make muscle sauls and one laboratory component and you make outta posts are fat cells in another one and you put them together and they become sort of exactly like meat so a lot of the people who are in this business. Don't say it's like me it is I wonder. Do you think that long term. Because you know what's been interesting about about the the plant based meat replacement. Is that the the pushback on on that food is that it may not be that good for you and that people don't necessarily barely know what's in there so do you think that long-term figuring out that science of essentially growing meet without killing animals is the most has the most potential I think it has an enormous potential and I think it has potential not only for Trying to solve. I mean we have a huge problem coming up in the next twenty to thirty years we need to feed fifty million more people. The climate is changing. We need to find some more sustainable way to do it. Plus people are becoming coming extremely conscious about animal welfare issues. So you know this this may be part of the solution to a huge problem and the other thing to think about them. We all heard recently that to cultured meat. Companies want a culture Beef Product and the other cultured fish product. Recently recently were made in space and for thinking about a trip to Mars. It's not always going to be Matt Damon on the planet saying you know we have to science the Hell Outta this memphis science. The hell out of our going to I like using science I love it. Yeah so so you have to science the hell. AWW HOTI feed astronauts on a multi year voyage. Yeah okay so it's all well and good and here I slip into my customer Karol as you can tell by by the preparatory size so it's all well and good that the three of us and many millions of other people On the upside scale of this economy here and in Europe and in parts of Asia are having these conversations. But if I need to feed my family emily and I'm a subsistence farmer anywhere in the world or I don't have the means to buy a heavily.
"burgers" Discussed on Robot or Not?
"Hello robot or not listeners we have made an official robot are not tee-shirt it's available now through November Seventeenth Twenty Nineteen Goto the incomparable dot com slash shirt to learn more about our friend and listener Joe Steel Asks for your definition of the limits of what can and cannot be called a burger all right so burgers I haven't given a lot of maybe this is coming context of the plant based because burgers maybe that's why this is in people's consciousness but before sort of the uh the more the more recent meet like plant based Burgers I don't think that anyone was conceiving of Burger as anything other than a short for hamburger or be the sort of modifier were you do in the style of Burger a veggie Burger is vegetables in the style of a Burger a Turkey Burger you put almost anything burgers like a puck shaped Wad style stuff Thanksgiving Dinner Burger right but nome was calling that a burger because if you said give me a burger you knew they meant it was discharged for hamburger is a hamburger is and it was used as a modifier now with the advent of these plant based things I understand this gap in the naming and some legal arguments agreements over whether or not you can call that Burger right it's almond milk all over again which we already did an episode about so yeah but I think the Turkey Bay and Beyond Burger and the impossible burger and all those other things do not really change anything a burger is too short for hamburger which is ground beef and everything else is food acts the style of a hamburger that's like a Turkey Burger so an impossible burger or beyond burden whenever a Boca Burger these are garden burger right they they are a presumably bley protein. I mean I feel like we've got a simple definition for a hamburger because a hamburger with ground beef but it's also a protein between two buns and and then there's there could be toppings of there could not be and if you were placed the protein then it's not a hamburger anymore it's a something else burger it's a protein burger in the style the hamburger protein because that's allows all sorts of stuff to has to has to be ground beef that's the hamburger. I know I'm just I'm just saying like I wouldn't put I you know if all that's in between two buns is like cheese and lettuce I don't think that's a lettuce burger man I mean in shape it into a patty again I think you can call it but you know whatever and then patty then patty would be a definition then right I'm just thinking like if if you if you literally serve somebody hamburger but there's no ground meat in it it's it's just like a tomato circle and some lettuce leaves and and some cheese catch up I don't think that's a Burger I think they're atty I feel like it has to be a conglomeration of things like a slice tomato can't be it but if you ground up that tomato into a slurry and bounded together circular object of tomato and lettuce than it would be really bad adv Veggie Burger King of like if you go to Burger King and some other fast food restaurants you can get a chicken sandwich and you can get a essentially a chicken burger sometimes they might call it that but really when it's like a chicken breast on a gun I feel like it's chicken sandwich a chicken and sandwich right whereas if it was a one of those formed pucks of breaded chicken I might argue at that point you could call it a burger because it's it's not a chicken breast anymore it's just as well they're basically a little chicken burger visits ground up chicken it's not like whole pieces of chicken it's just so happens that when you granted chicken and jam back together SORTA SORTA Rican into a more uniform mass than than when you the same thing with like vegetables for your Veggie Burger have you ever had one of these alternative Burger's daughter Vegetarian has been even beyond Burgers I've tried them do not like I haven't tried the impossible burger though so I don't and maybe that's a good one I don't know I don't know I have enough trouble in my life eat finding food to eat that I haven't had this but I have heard from vegetarian some interesting I thought that some people they don't want it to taste like meat because they're vegetarians and they've kind of gone past at and I think that's okay because the Eddie Burgers for them. Yeah the Meat Substitute Burger seems to be for people who eat meat and went to not eat as much or any of it and that's good that's fine I have no problem with that and sliders what about sliders that just like many Burger and all other rules apply does slide. I don't think it has actually slide it just three small okay bro Or.
