"Same thing that we've said about the battery technology, first gen stuff, make sure that you do your homework on it because I personally would wait maybe two second generation third generation and before I'm going to buy and you know, I think these people that are providing the feedback of oh wait 6 grand for a Hummer EV tail light are actually making the point for me that I tried to make in our previous segment about the Cadillac. About the $300,000 Cadillac. Yeah. So is your issue that it's a $6000 part or is your issue that it's a $6000 part on a GM product? Ah, yeah. See what I'm saying? Yeah, absolutely right, because you wouldn't, you wouldn't sneeze at it if it were a Rolls Royce. If that was on a Porsche or pick something out, a Jaguar, a BMW. Let's go 70, $80,000 BMW. Yeah, yeah. You see 6 grand to replace like that rear quarter that you're probably gonna go, yeah, okay, that sounds about right. Yeah. It's in your, yeah, if you're in the house, then you're in the house, period. But I think it's because this is a General Motors made product. People are having. And again, it's like genesis moving away from Hyundai. Right. And have their own because that's what they are. They want to be a VIP type car. And that's exactly why Cadillac has separated themselves from GM. But this is a hammer under the General Motors. Maybe there's your argument that did it make sense for them to produce a Hummer at a $100,000 plus price tag. Or would it have been better to just make it a Cadillac branded product? This is true. They get a call that the new escalade. E

"People are freaking out over that. Because the Hummer in particular has come to light as that being an actual truth. And Jane and I were talking about this the other day. And I said, yeah, I mean, with all the tech that they're putting in those taillight assemblies. I mean, these things are doing things when the vehicle is turned off. It's not just stop lights and turn signals, right? It's doing all kinds of cool stuff. The LED emitters change color. So the old way was you basically have two or three different colored bulbs, right? Like you may have a red bulb or a clear bulb with a red lens. Or you may have two red bulbs and the second one kicks on when you step on the brakes and then you might have a yellow bulb that's your turn signal. Now it's all the same LED strip. It's just changing colors as needed, or the transitional thing, like Ford's been doing for a while and their Mustang where when you put the signal on it, it actually moves in succession. It's the electronics. It's the electronics that are involved that does all these things. Yeah, there's control boards on each one of those components, right? I mean, you're essentially bolting on OLED TV or LCD. And they might have cameras in them. Because of all that see through the trailer towing thing that GM does. There's just so much tech in the car. It's just amazing. So these are some of the things that you need to pay attention to and be very mindful of when you're buying these vehicles. And the other side to this is, this is why I wanted to talk about this today, is that I use a an online software, which is called all data, all data Perot, which most people in the service industry do use. And what you get with that is you get service information, book time, diagrams of how to replace things, how to do it, all the procedures to perform a specific task on a vehicle to replace something like a tail lamp or a headlamp or whatever. But I have gotten on to all data. This is where they got you right now. There is no information on electric vehicles out there right now. On how to do things. That'll change though, right? Well, I think that with the right to repair act, it's out there. I think that you have to allow people to do that, but I'm telling you guys that there's going to be certain, this is not your average, you know, pull a few torque screws out, pull the lens off, pull the bulb out, put a bulb in, put the lens back on and you're done. This is not how it's going to work because you're dealing with technology within that component, which, like you said, you've got several boards across there, chips, sensors, potentially cameras, which most likely they are. But you have also super, super thick glass that's on this stuff that is like the gorilla glass. It's like use on your cell phones. Right. Stuff like that. So they can handle a lot of abuse, but they can't handle a guy running into the rear end of the vehicle. So taking it out. Yeah, so I have interestingly enough, I'm going to draw back to that same podcast that I was listening to that I talked about earlier. With the guys from one wheel. Before I get to that, Jay, I think baron von Cadillac might be our arch nemesis. So maybe in the power changeover garage sitcom business that we're talking

"So there's a lot of factors that go into this. And I'm with you. They've entered into a space that it's not typically for a Cadillac. You leave that to the rolls royces. And let them hand build those vehicles and get that type of price. I think they can do it. I think they can do it. Yeah. I just don't know that the consumers with that kind of money to spend, even if it's every bit as good as the bentleys of the world. I just don't know that you go with the Cadillac version over the Bentley. It has to be better for 300 K, right? Yeah, and I don't know, I mean, when I look at some of the technology that's going into this, of course, this is just based on what we're having in front of us at the moment, but it says that it comes a 55 inch mega screen with a display for the passenger rear recliners and entertainment has 38 speakers. Ultra Cruz, which, yes, it's the next generation of super cruise basically. GM, they say is hoping to update ultra cruise to enable supervised but hands free driving. Door to door. How about that? Lighting is also a focus, they said, and we're just going to segue into our next topic of discussion. The LED taillights have their lighting elements pushed right out to the surface. Giving them depth far beyond, they standard reflector set up. The front headlights are also 1.3 megapixel projectors capable projectors that are capable of just, wow, sequences. Man, really do we need that? The roof is pushing the limits they say. It's an all glass roof that has four electrochromatic dimming zones. With an embedded leds at its darkest, it has a 20% tint. That's just about a standard moonroof basically. The chief engineer says that it will block out about 80% of the sun's thermal energy. And then let's see, they've got new gent therm climate sense for zone climate control system that it will keep the car properly cool on a hot day, but given that Cadillac has decided to include neck warmers, holy cow, who's driving this thing. Right. Neck warmers. Okay, yeah, it's hard to imagine the company skimping on the AC. I like that. Now they're saying this thing, Cadillac says the first customer, celesti, will be produced in December of 2023 with sails to follow thereafter, production will be limited to roughly two per day.

We've talked about the Cadillac lyric. It is Cadillac's flagship at this point. Of their entry into the EV market. It's an awesome looking vehicle turns heads like crazy. My dad is actually really, my dad loves cadillacs and he likes the car. We've talked about it. But Cadillac didn't stop there. They are wanting to obviously compete with the rolls royces. And a customizable luxury vehicle that will be there will be no two alike they say. They will all be hand built, they are 3D printing as many as a 115 different components on this vehicle. They are also doing some interesting aluminum casting for the wheels are going to have 23 inch wheels on these things. Here's the thing that got my attention mainly though. Yester hand built luxury vehicle and it'll be a low volume vehicle as well. 300,000 dollars. All right. So this is interesting. And I do like the enthusiasm that Mary Barra and team are showing on, hey, let's try some new things. My gut reaction to this is with no offense to your dad because the Cadillac does make a good product. And then resale values tend to do well over the years. But $300,000 for an automobile made by General Motors. So let me put this in perspective. Okay? This is space, by the way, that they haven't been in yet. Right. So let's say you're going to buy a watch. Okay? And you have $10,000 to spend on a watch. You know what? Let's make it 15. Let's make this interesting, okay? Okay. Okay. You got 15 K to spend on a watch, okay? Do you buy a Rolex? Or do you buy the latest fancy watch from timex that has all the Rolex like features and then some? For 12 5. Point will take in if I've got 15 to spend. You're going to get a Rolex. I'm going to get a rollout. Or an omega, or right? Right. Why is that? Timex has been around. They make decent watches. They don't make a decent yet $15,000 watch. No. That I know of. They make fishing at us out there, Mike, correct me. Right. But if I'm going to spend that kind of money on a watch, I'm buying more than the components in the watch, right? Right. Right. Okay. I think there's a couple of things that you get from this. For example, loss of value over time. Rolls Royce versus a Cadillac, loss of value. I don't think you're going to have near as much in depreciation with that roles or worse as you will with the Cadillac. Likewise, with a timex over a Rolex. It just doesn't happen. If anything, they increase in value.

"Wow, if you do not know what a dual clutch transmission is, we're going to drop a video that is probably one of the most thorough videos, it's engineering explained as the YouTube channel, love to watch this guy. He's very informative. He knows what he's talking about. So we'll drop that YouTube video in there just in case you don't know what a dual clutch transmission is. Basically, it is exactly what it says. Instead of a manual transmission, it is dual clutches, which you can have paddle shifting involved. It's still an automatic transmission. There's a lot of things you can do with it. It's how you get there. This is how we're getting from the normal 5 speed 6 speed transmissions in a manual transmission up to these ten speeds that you have in some of these forwards. These are mainly HP transmissions that we're talking about here. I think, but it's going to be a software glitch somewhere as well as a mechanical component failure here, and they will get that fixed. The problem you have with this particular failure is that you too will lose complete drivability here. You can not, you will not move. So three things to add to that, number one, on that point of losing complete drivability, Hyundai thinks it's serious enough that they issued a stop order to freeze sales of all those vehicles that are affected. So not all Santa Cruz's or Kona's or, you know, elantra's are affected. No. But the Hyundai knows which ones they are and they probably know that by what Jay they're then that number. That would be the point. If you think your vehicle, if you've got a 21 or 22 Hyundai, it's one of those vehicles Jay mentioned, and you think you might be impacted. The very first thing you need to do is go get

"How do you do everybody is complaining about there's two things that worry people about EVs, range is one of them, but secondly, everybody seems to throw this out, well, the grid can't handle it. Well, while Keith and I don't disagree with that, completely. There's a lot of work to be done in order to convert over to electric vehicles or to have some sort of population with the goals at, say, 20, 30, 20, 35, to be all electric. That is going to be very taxing on the grid, no doubt about it. But they are thinking outside of the box now. How do we how do we get there? So the key is to relax the grid a little bit. And with this type of venture and the technology we have, which is bio directional chargers that go into these vehicles where not only can you charge the EV, but you can put back into the grid. You can put it back in. This is very important for the system to work. So this is huge. I completely love that. It is different. And I've looked into this. The traditional standby generator that people have the big ones that you put outside your home where if you lose power, it would kick on and you could run it and it would power things like your air conditioning or your HVAC system or your refrigerator. They're big, right? They're big units. Right. But you have to have an anti, I forget the term of it. But basically, it's an anti feedback device that blocks power from being sent back up the power line to your neighbor's house and the grid, so to speak. Because people could die if there's an outage, let's say a line broke a tree fell on a line and that guy's working on the line and he doesn't expect that it's hot that it has power going through it and you're generators sending power back up the line. That's not a good situation. Not to mention the fact that it could create other electrical problems with other components connected on downstream or upstream, but this is a different step in that the grid would potentially accept power back from your stored device and you could potentially get paid for that. Absolutely. I know of several people in the area here where I live that have recently gotten incentives to install solar panels on their private residence. And what a cost savings for them in the end run with this. Because they're able to pay back. I mean, they're actually being bought back, bought energy is being purchased from them. From the power companies, man. And so it's a win win. I don't know what their monthly bill is, but I know Disney developed a massive solar farm and it's actually shaped like Mickey's head in Orlando.

"What you have going on here. And so I'm excited for Honda and Sony and LG to be on top of this stuff. And we, as the parts kind of gurus will continue to bring you updates on these stories as they become available. So good luck to Sony, Honda, and LG. And Ohio. Good for you, winning the lottery. Well, I think everybody, it's good karma. They're just trying to make up for lordstown. Anyway, good lordstown. Sony is not sorry for stumbling around there. Sony is not or Sony Honda or whatever we're going to end up name in that country. The company. Leave us a comment. Let us know what you all think there. But they're not the only players in the game of late. That want to get into energy supply, I guess. I'm not sure exactly what to call this, but it's the production of power power producing components. Right. GM is another one. And GM just announced that they are going to spin off a company, let's see what I can tell you here. It's going to start off a new business that's going to be energy centric. They're going to call it GM energy because why not, right? Right. And they're going to do stuff, some of it's similar to what Tesla has done. You know, stationary battery packs, solar panels, electric vehicle chargers, energy management products. And forward forward, by the way, has also recently gotten into that sector as well. Well, why not? That makes sense. Absolutely. I mean, you sent me a thing of a Costco like home EV wall charging unit for your car that you can buy at Costco now. It makes sense for GM to go, hey, we need, we stand to somebody's, this is the same thing that we said when the state government started to invest in charging station infrastructure. Somebody's going to do it. There's money to be made, all of these electric devices have to be recharged somehow. So GM says, let's be, let's get there early. Let's make the components that help charge these things up and supply power and also all these grid problems that people keep bringing up if we offer some storage solutions, you're less impacted when you have a power outage for a couple hours. Absolutely. And you've got to tell you how valid of a venture this is for them. When you've got PG&E on their side, con Edison, there is a lot of energy companies out there that are on board with this for a lot of reasons because they've got and of course the technology, the technology is out there for them to make this happen. And I think there's been some little events that have happened that you guys have heard about in the past like specific storms like ice storms and winter storms that took the grid out in Texas and you had a guy with a Ford F one 50 hybrid that had the full onboard charging generator system that allowed him to power up his own home. So it's not something that's new, really, it's just putting it to work for not only the user, but as well as helping the grid out.

"Is that what it is? And you'll see it's an interesting company. And you might be able to buy something there if you pay attention long enough. So please do. So Keith, yeah. Gosh, man. I just really, really wish there were, you know, we're talking about big things happening in the automotive industry, and this is a big one. And I find it to be more so, just because of where it's going to be, more so than anything. So Honda has apparently decided to build a EV battery plant here in the U.S. and the information that we have says that it's going to be somewhere in Ohio. We don't have the exact location as of yet. But I'd say I told you so. We did. We did, and it's going to be at the cost of around 4.4 billion. That is with a B, 4.4 billion. So who are they going to partner up with? LG, LGE, LG energy solution, has teamed up with these guys, which they were already teamed up anyway. Which we brought that to you. LG is also in partnership if I'm not mistaken with ultium with GM. That is correct. There's a lot of moving pieces to this. So the reason LG is a desirable partner is because okay, and if I may digress here for just a minute, look, everybody, this is nothing new in the automotive industry. When new technology enters an automobile and these manufacturers start to include that technology, that tech. They tend to lean on companies that have gone down that road before. So for example, infotainment systems started showing up in cars, four GM Chrysler, Toyota, all of them partnered with other companies to put that because they're not making radios. Toyota's not making radios, right? They're partnering with another company to do that. Anytime there's a technological advancement and it's something that. I just can't use the word tech enough here that it's really more technology centric than let's say axles or breaks Ford's going to lean on. Honda's gonna lean on GM's gonna lean on companies that have that experience and that's why LG keeps getting tapped to be a partner. Absolutely. This is what they do. And Honda would rather invest their money mainly into their automotive side or their other ventures like their motorcycles and other I mean, they even do generators. They're all over the place. So they've got a lot of energy and financial clout that's going to go in that direction. And partnering up with LG makes sense because this is what LG does. This is there. So LG is not going to go out and build a car. They're going to go tap into somebody to help them build that car and we'll get into somebody who's doing the same thing. Here are momentarily because this is why this is important. And I think that this is interesting. Here's what they say though, the construction loop facility located about 40 miles southwest of Columbus. And again, we don't have the exact location outside of Columbus, but that's pretty good for that area. Well, the good news is if those lordstown employees end up without out of work, they can just drive right over to the new Honda. Are

Eric Thomas: Look in the Mirror and Learn Who You Are

"When you don't look in the mirror, you are not empowered. When you look in the mirror, you see you and what you want and what you need to do and what you need to be when you look in the mirror you reflect when you reflect you transform. When you transform, you change when you change, you do things differently. When you do things differently, you get different outcomes. When you looking in the window and you stand at other people, there is no reflection. It's only comparing. And as long as you can bear yourself to another model, I drive an escalator from Detroit. I drive an S plan, a Cadillac, right? When I see a dude in a Bentley, I'm looking at that baby like fire. But at no point am I going? I want to trade my Cadillac in for the Bentley. I've seen some fire land. I moved to Cali, everybody got Range Rover. I see some fire range rope. I've seen some Lamborghini. I looked at these vehicles and go, my, what craftsmanship. I've never gone, I feel just escalate. I feel so bad. I'm in an escalade. This is the car that was my dream car. The black on black. This is what I dreamed of. This is it. This is my dream vehicle. And so I don't look at what others have in compare. I actually look at what others have. I actually look at air and go man, there's a God. Wow. Look how he operates in his gift and is annoying. Look at his energy and his passion. Look as his delivery. And then I go, hey God, where's mine? Why did you give me? And give me ads. I don't want ants. Why? I can't do ads like air can do ads. But I can do erics like Eric and do Eric. So I'm saying get out of the window. Get in the mirror. Look at you, study you, figure out you. My boy Mustafa said some of the other day that was deep.

Todd Starnes Gets in Trouble at Whole Foods

"I haven't been I'm trying to eat a little healthier and I wasn't really happy with the produce at the regular supermarket. Fair enough. So I thought, you know what, I gotta go to the whole foods. I mean, that's what they're known for. You know, the high dollar lettuce and vegetables and all that kind of whatnot. It's a very nice store though. It's a great store, so I'm driving, I'm driving there in the Cadillac, and I realize, oh wow, there is a parking spot up front. Oh. And I thought that. I was very excited. I mean, it's a busy supermarket. A lot of, you know, a lot of people are shopping. And so I realized I thought, well, maybe it's handicapped parking. A lot of these stories have like 75 parking spots for the handicap. I've noticed that. And nobody's nobody's ever parked there, so the rest of us have to walk a couple of a quarter of a mile to the store. Dare they make us walk. So anyway, there wasn't a handicapped sign. So I thought, oh, great. Well, I pull right in and to go about my business. And anyone when I get out, some guy is just kind of giving me the evil eye. And he said, your parking, your parking in a place reserved for electric cars. Sir. Was there a charging port? Because I realize, you know, I'm turning around and looking, and I realized, holy crap, everybody's shopping here has a Biden bumper sticker, and I like the only person without one. Oh. Did you still left out? No, no, I just felt like the I felt like it wasn't the odd man out. I was the right man out. Sir, that no, you need to park somewhere else. Did he talk with me? Yeah, I don't know, maybe he had the flu. I don't know, he was and he was. He did have a mask on. There you go. So that could have been it.

"Customer care ethos with our footprint of distribution that we can have a competitive advantage there. Rory, does it concern you at all if a customer is on a waiting list for an EV that they're going to say, you know, I'm not willing to wait a year for this. I want something sooner. I need something sooner, and they go to a competitor. Yeah, I mean, it's a good question. We haven't seen that in terms of the debut edition as an example in terms of people saying that the time is too long to wait. Indeed, if you looked at many OEMs at the moment as an example, if a customer orders a high demand vehicle, there's going to be an extended lead time for customers to be able to get that vehicle. So yes, it does concern me. But at the moment, I don't see it fundamentally as big issue. Rory give us an idea of what you were doing, what Cadillac is doing with GM is doing behind the scenes right now in order to have that portfolio of Cadillac vehicles be all electric by 2030. Yeah, so if you looked at it, we've now launched our last icicle, literally if you go back a few weeks now, we announced the Cadillac Escalade V I guess it was a derivative within the escalate family. But from this point forward, every vehicle that we will launch will be an EV. We literally teased it, which will be an ultra luxury vehicle as an example, so we put a few schematics of that vehicle out there in the marketplace that we're looking forward to breaking some lose on that in the sort of July August September time scale. So everything really is focused on EVs from a Cadillac perspective now and into the future. Our thanks to Rory Harvey, he's global vice president of Cadillac. Bloomberg's

"Amazon Michaels, and more proudly made in the U.S. of a I use on the other day. Oh, you did. Yeah, in the garage. I had to dig out their super glue. And it does exactly what it's supposed to do, right? That's what's great about it. Yeah. Definitely needed it. But driving the few different cadillacs, right? We're talking about the escalade. But I finally picked up the CT 5 V series, the CT 5 black wing. They're a little bit larger four door sedan. You know, it's midsize 5 series ish four door sedan. It's got their 6.2 liter V8. Supercharged. 6.2 supercharged. 668 horsepower. Wow. I would have done a 6 6 6. It's the mark of the beast. This car's a beast. At 6500 RPM red line, 6 59 pound feet of torque. You can get it with the ten speed auto at this point the last hurrah with these cars you want it with the 6 speed manual, which by the way, the 6 speed manual is what I drove. It shifts great. It has good feedback. It's easy to drive the clutch film crate. It was super fun to drive, getting that kind of power in a sedan like that and just having like a good all American supercharged V8 making that kind of noise. You know, it'll run 1160s in the quarter mile. Wow. I want to say the tests are coming in with the manual. Zero to 60 in 3.6 seconds. The automatic's probably faster, but who cares? This is so much more fun with this. Well, it's not, I mean, you're right and sorry, but I think with what bring a trailer is doing with cars with a manual versus whatever semi-automatic whatever. I just think it's like you almost can't justify not getting the stick these days. I mean, between the fun factor and the collectability and resale value, I think you're absolutely right. There's a few options you can get carbon fiber packages and some of its aesthetic, but at least it adds a little bit of down force. Is that the kind of thing you'd have to order? I think you're going to have to order pretty much anything at this point. Right. What's it retail for? So it starts at about 87,000 base price. The one I drove is about 98. And I think you can get it up to about a 115 with carbon ceramic brakes in the full carbon fiber package. I want to say the brakes are 15.7 inch rotors in the front, 14.6 in the rear. Wow. It's a big rotor. It's massive. It's just meant to be a four door Corvette, essentially, right? Like if you want the Corvette now, the previous Corvette manual transmission and front engine and supercharged and this is that. Now in Cadillac can get away with doing it for now. Gas mileage is going to be terrible, but it's just going to be, it's going to be fun. It's just a crazy fun. It's got two 75, 35, 19s in the front, three O 5 30, 19th in the back. Three O 5 in the back. Yeah, three or 5 in the back. And it tears them up. Like I was just you just lean into the throttle on this thing. Leave everything on. Like don't even need the track mode and traction control off. It's still gives you a little leeway. It'll get the tires loose a little bit, and then get itself organized and get you in a straight line. That's cool. So I'm glad Cadillac's back. I'm glad everyone's back. I'm glad American cars are back. I'm also glad that, you know, you go and bring a trailer and there's like Cadillac station wagons on there for 65 grand and stuff. I mean, 2006. CTS V wagons. The main animals. You got to snatch up all those Magnum wagons. Yeah. Yeah, I guess, I guess there are V8 slush box. I told you I was driving. I did the Tommy Kendall test drive thing of the Magnum wagon. Willis springs and I think just a piece fell off. And I didn't hit him or get off the track or anything just like a piece of the car came off while we were. Well, you know, sporting vigorous driving. Like a cosmetic piece for a vital piece. I can't recall, but I just remember like a piece coming off the car. It's going to bring that damn show back. All right, so this car is badass. It's comfortable. It rides well. You're talking about cars kind of working. The magnetic ride that so many cars have, all their different versions of the magnetic ride. Even with a sporty suspension, it makes it all tolerable. It makes it you can drive a car on our four O 5. And still be like, eh, it's not, it's not terrible, but if it was just like a full race suspension, it'd be knocking your teeth out, but we can do this. Are we getting to a place where, you know, people used to buy luxury brands and they would buy BMW and Lexus and stuff like that. And they probably weren't buying a Cadillac several years ago. Now are you kind of the cool guy at the cars in the coffee, you know, somebody comes in with a loaded BMW 7 series or M4 or some Audi a or R 7 or something, but you come pulling in with the Cadillac that you were driving. Right. Now you're kind of the cool guy, right? I kind of think so I kind of think so when you're talking about the CTS vs and the wagons that from years ago, I think you were already starting to be that. I mean, the wagon is special and some people really love the idea of the wagon, especially with catalog going. Well, let's give it a supercharged V8 and a manual transmission and a wagon. That's cool. Right. That's car just for enthusiasts. Right. And for that reason, I think that's what people really liked about Cadillac getting into the performance realm going. Well, they're going to do a quote. Maybe it's not going to be the fastest. It's not going to outrun the M 5 or the fastest AMG, but you're right. You get to go, oh, I get American V8, it's supercharged. I get a manual transmission, and I can get it in the coop and I get it in the wagon. That does get attention. I think that's a cool halo car for Cadillac and it does kind of make you the cool kid. Certainly everyone that had them are putting them up on bring a trailer. They're feeling like, oh, I got a lot of fun out of this vehicle and I'm getting my money out of it. So yeah, I think why not? So I think this car, you know, look, we've got a few more years before we can't really get away with cars that get 13 miles of the gallon. Right. So why not go out with a bang? I agree. All right, let's keep this show a little on the shorter side because we got a pack and get all our ducks in order and all loaded up and figured out for this road trip or taken off as we tape this obviously later on today and I couldn't find my suitcase this morning. It's all my junks and Malibu. I was literally taking handfuls of clothes and throwing them in my pillow. Pillowcase? Gotta pack up the I haven't packed up my race duffel or anything. We got a lot of stuff. But we'll be at the track. We'll be keeping you guys posted on what's going on. Yeah, so we're gonna be up there. I'm gonna try to get as much content as possible. Photos and some quick videos and stuff. So if you just follow me at moderator and social media, as you're listening to this, then you'll be getting some live updates from the track. Indianapolis, by the way, albeit helium coming up may 6th and 7th, and then we're going to Huntington Beach, at sea legs, may 20th. So.

"Not much gossip except to say that Andrea is in town and we took, we took tootsie to rails the other night. And I thought, this would be great. I haven't seen Johnny roast beef is the frontman at Rao's. You guys know Johnny roast beef is a great character actor, of course he's the guy in Goodfellas who buys the Cadillac too soon after the robbery and didn't really tell him to take it back, take it back, Jimmy, Jimmy. It's under my wife's name. Take it back. He's that guy. I hadn't seen Johnny for a long time, so we show up the other night. And it was like a little reunion. Because it wasn't more than a day that our good buddy Pauly Herman had died. The guy who was the front man for ago in Los Angeles as Johnny's the frontman for rails. And I was with I saw all the guys, a lot of guys that were once the rails, guys. I mean, the ago guys. I saw Joe cortese. It was a great actor and a great writer too. Peter Dobson, who you may know of from several things he's done, including a movie many years ago called sing. Peter used to date my ex-girlfriend, Vanessa, and there was a time we were kind of like rivals because we were young and stupid. But every time I see Peter, it's nothing but love. In fact, he was with me on the last night that I go was in business. And he was with me when I stole the chair that Pauly sits in or sat in and we reminisced about that. I was with Nick very long ago who wrote the Oscar winning movie green book all about his father. And I didn't know he was a fan of mine. I'd ever met Nick. And when Johnny roast beast beef brought me to that table, it was remarkable how these guys stood up and wanted to talk to me and know me. In fact, one guy who I can't remember his name, he said to me, yeah, I tell everybody, you told me that you told everybody that Dan Rather fucked Hillary Clinton. I said, so you listen to my show, he goes, I never miss your show. I forget the guy's name. But he couldn't wait to tell that story to the whole table. And then when he told that story, the whole table went bananas.

"I told my dad, I was leaving for France a race of mine. Go like, yeah, all right. Yeah, there you go. And then he wouldn't remember when you got back. What have you been doing? Here's how much my dad knows about me racing. He read in the newspaper that NASCAR coming to Fontana. And he's like, you're in that rice? Yeah. And I was like, sure. I'm on the circuit. Yeah. Wait, I thought you were banned from the circuit. From that incident. That killed that guy on the track after you died in the car, but yeah, yeah, then we got to leave for Talladega tonight. I mean, after the race, right after weekend, we got to pack up the semi. I'm on the circuit. Dad, there's something called professional race car driving. I do a podcast. I'm a comedian who sometimes does a race. Somebody like that. If somebody came over, if a cable guy came over, let's assume he had cable. If a cable guy came over, and he said, oh, that's a picture of your son, and he said, yeah, what does he do? What do you think he would say? Race car driver? Comedian? He does a podcast or something. Justin palace here. We were just comparing and contrasting your father and my father as it pertains to automobile racing. Well, hello, guys. Hey, how are you? Good. Do you know it's funny? I kind of heard that. And I didn't know he was who he was until I got beaten up at school, you know what I mean? Because isn't everyone's dad at race car driver? You know, you just, you just grow up and we're here to tell you now. Well, do you know what? It shows how you can have your head stuck in your house because growing up. Literally it was a kid at my little prep school who said, oh, you do it both son and next thing is I was lying on my back. Really? Yeah, because kids, especially British kids, you know, we hate, we love to build people up and then take them down. That's the British thing. It's what we do instantly. Nigel Mansell. Oh my God, he was just the best and then the, you know, the daily mail slaughtered him for the next ten years and it's kind of a British thing, but I remember talking to Chloe mason, you know, next daughter and I had I'm sure she went like this being said on there, but we had a little thing back in the day when we were teenagers Pink Floyd Pink Floyd Nick Mason and she had never been to anything other than Wembley. To watch in front of 50,000 people, she'd never been to a pub and watched her dad play a gig in so I guess the moral of the story is is that if you, if you're born and to someone, you only know your dad when he's successful if he becomes successful. He didn't know the journey up there, you know? Did you go to Le Mans? I mean, I know you raced with your dad at Le Mans. Did you go there as a fan and watch him? The first time I went, I was four months and then so I don't remember that, but I went I've been to Le Mans about 38 times out of four years. Yeah, I raced at 12 times. Won it and all that stuff once, but then I went to see but there was a period in my late teens when I kind of went with Friends as a fan. And it was, it was a whole different, oh my God, people getting drunk over here. All the places my mom had tried to stop me being exposed to because they used to in the good old days have a fair. And a good old fairground with prostitutes and the world's fattest lady and a three legged small person. Yeah, you see the old Le Mans footage and you can see the Ferris wheel in the background. It was like Mad Max over there. And my mom would take us for a walk and my sister and I would be 12. Let's go in there. I want to see the fattest lady in the world again, and she'd be like, we're not doing that. Meanwhile, but then they clean the whole place up by the time I was. They tried to do it to the ring, right? They tried to do it the Nurburgring with fair and a whole thing, and it's just a ghost town, right? Yeah, I mean, if you take the I don't know, if you take the sleaze out of the sleazy area, it's suddenly takes a lot out of it, doesn't it? You know, it's like reduces the appeal. Sebring. I mean, Sebring still in the old good old days said burn cars in the middle. You know, now they have a police station with like a 60 foot crow's nest above everybody. But everyone's still doing everything they want to just out of sight. I mean, it's a fun, fun thing. What were you driving when you won? The viper? Oh, the viper, that's right. So 1995 was in the harrods McLaren with dad. You know, we led for 12 hours on Father's Day. Really? And then came third. Behind the JD Leto car and that was obviously extraordinary to be up there on the podium with my dad. And I appreciate this Adam because obviously I happens to you when you go to Starbucks, but I've never had a 100,000 people on the podium we stood up there and 100,000 people down below and 70,000 Brits, all shouting. I mean, I heard bell. I mean, they were saying Derek bell, but you know, it was like, Belle, I'm like, that's close enough. And it's close enough. And dad's in debt said just soak it in. So I went to the front, put my hands on the railing and remember going to be a dictator. Now I get it. There's an appeal to this sort of massive humanity. And then when I went back three years later, when we won it, in the viper, which was just kick ass program, really. And we won everything for four years. And being up there having won your class was great, but not as good as finishing third with that. Was the first time you did Le Mans with your dad? Was that the first time 1992 was the first time I did in the 9 6 two Porsche. Okay. Yeah, in the pouring rain. The difference between being young and stupid and old and stupid, maybe dad says it's raining. It's horrific out there and I came in and went, that was brilliant. You know? So much fun. So much fun, but yeah, that was the end of that 9 6 two era. You know, it was like the last run probably for one of those cars, but yeah, it's gonna say into the early 90s. But pulling out of the pit lane at a race where I'd watched it as a fan for 25 years was still the single most defining moment. You know, pulling out going, oh my God, here it is. Okay, there's the fairground. You could smell used to say, you could smell the sweet smells of the fairground at night when you drove past you.

"A local agent. Yeah, get it on, got to get on the truth and get a mandate, get it on. Welcome to the car cast man, we'll call it the moderator Deandre over there. Hello, how are you? Good, how are you? Good. We've got a big lineup of some fun cars to be driving over the next month or so. And kicked it off with this Cadillac CT four V series black wing. It's a lot of big name. I know. Black, it's funny. There's like black label whisky and black that Mercedes has the black version of things. And I like it as a black label. Yeah, yeah, that's why I was confused. When I was trying to get my link and I was like, Lincoln black, black label, not in black, just the black, and then isn't black label. I kept thinking, isn't that scotch? But it's interesting in that I always look at the decade and I go, what is the buzzword of that decade? In the 90s, it was stealth. It'd be stealth cars and stealth aftershave. Stealth movies. Is that just water? Yeah, we like idea of stealth. It was hot. And then right before stealth, there was turbo. Everything was turbo. And cars would be turbo. Big letters, you know, turbo. Turbo. To let turbo. Cologne aftershave. Cars, deodorant. I was just like, German. And then there's a lot of turbocharged your day with this cereal. So but now we're in the black. Yeah. We pick words and we go, oh yeah. And then we go with those words. Right. And before turbo was all rocket jet and green, 'cause we were when we're starting to dabble with fuel efficiency and getting into EV and hybrids. It was green, green, green. But now we're just saying EV and we're saying hybrid. Green's not even coming up anymore. Right, right, you know? Right. So I just like when we grab a buzz word and it's not one company, Lincoln, Mercedes, Cadillac Lincoln and Cadillac. But they're all black. Yeah. Well, this car's badass. Really? I don't care what it's called. So the CT four so the lineup is and I was trying to get this in an order of sort of a fun scale and practical scale. So I've got the CT four black wing and then I'm going to drive the new Corvette and then the new Cadillac escalate because you've got some road trips and Grand Prix of Long Beach and then the CT 5 black wing, which is the slightly bigger version. So the CD4 is kind of the three series ish. And then the CT 5 is the larger kind of 5 series ish. And we've talked about sort of the last hurrah of good gas engine vehicles, something fun. You can get before you start getting into all EV stuff. And not that those cars won't perform. The performance numbers are there. But the CT four, it's a 3.6 liter turbocharged V 6. I want to say it's four let me get the exact spec. Four 72 horsepower, four 45 pound feet of torque, manual transmission. And I know the automatic that ten speeds probably a tenth or two quicker, but the manual transmission. The way you drive double clutch, granny. We had Vin Diesel behind the wheel that gave a few tents. Yes, for sure. It is the game changer. It's kind of like the CTS-V when it had the manual and the V wagon when it had the manual like it knows we're starting to pull some money on bring a trailer. Oh my God. You know, I'll see wagons like Cadillac wagons. Sometimes even Mercedes. I always think about Mike August because he's dying to get a wagon. He is never going to get a wagon, but he's always thinking about it, you know? And when you go to Europe with Mike and you go to Goodwood, he's always walking through the parking lot. Look at that wagon. Look at that wing. They have all these cool wagons. If he finds like a salvage title, something or other he might pull the trigger on it, but it has to be something very unconventional how he acquires it. Well, you know, when you see those candy wagons pop up on bring a trailer for 70 grand or something, I don't know. I'm trying to even think what years they are, but they're getting all the money. Yeah. They are. You know, years ago when I did that Specter three, four one challenge. And then there's the Magnum. Yes. A mere Rosenbaum who had spectra at the time, he put on that event, he got a CTS-V wagon and he just like stripped all the interior out just to do the hill climb. It was just, it was like one seat and him. And I think it was fast. I mean, it was quick. You take all that weight out of it. Yeah. And if it's just sheet metal in that thing. But you know, this car scoots around good. It's probably zero to 60 in about four seconds, starts at just under 60 grand, the one I'm driving is 70. I think you can get it even up closer to 90, but 70 seems pretty well equipped, massage, seats, heated and cooled. You know, they've all got the magnetic ride now. So it's a really good balance. You get into this thing and it's super comfortable to drive smooth, good feedback with the steering, everything is good. And then it hauls out. Everything's fast. Everyone has an offering now. You know, it used to be. There was a time back in 2019 99. And a guy like Dr. Drew won a little performance. He got the BMW M 5. And then I had the M three, you know? But it was perfect he had kids..

"I used to take mat tests sometimes instead of doing crosswords or something. I used to like the math. Pro of that would give me hives and i really liked math but again. More like doing crossword puzzles. Something then something that. I thought would be something that i would apply to my entire life. This person told me. Look if you like math at all you should go into this because you're still gonna learn advertising and you can always go back to advertising but if you don't know and understand the math than it's going to be very hard for you to switch the other way and said well putting math in advertising together sounds good today and Switched the week before i went into school fell in love with statistics at learn how to code and how to build models and i i got very into it which really led me into understanding. How a lot of technology worked so my brain lakes to pick apart and take things apart And understand how to put them together and that helps me not only formulate my opinion on something but it also then i think helps me as i'm trying to drive solutions because that understanding and figuring out how things can be put back together can help me sometimes solve marketing problems as we're looking at how we're going to measure things. How are we going to target differently. What is all of that gonna lift light so as we look at our targeting and how we use marketing technology and data all of that is underlying but at my heart and soul. Is this love and passion for advertising and creativity and building creative. The people love so when those things come together. That is when. I'm really at my happiest in what i'm doing so not to make a bad sort of pun but it sounds like you followed your north. Start to your onstar. Path definitely sar onstar. Got me there. Yeah yeah exactly so. I know that you came from that discipline of data in love of math. So let's start with the brand side. Here's a big question is it goes to say caddy instead of cadillac. Sorta like crisco in san francisco. We usually say. I don't have a particular version to it. I especially as we're moving into electric. You know you have cadillac electric. And then we have all of our our electric vehicles and in iq. So lyric being the the i. Oh okay. i understand now l. y. r. iq. Okay that's my moment about. The branding is so speaking about what goes into the brand there are so many initiatives that gm corporate embraces pride and black lives matter environmentalism. I want for you please. To set the stage with a couple of examples of how you manifest the gm values and then how that might differ or become additive for cadillac. Yeah i think. Cadillac really embodies all of those values when you really look at the brand and who. We are so from the sustainability environment perspective. Cadillac is a brand. That is almost one hundred. Twenty years old and has really stayed at the forefront of culture and at the forefront of people's minds and you know set the standard of the world in many cases by being an innovator And as we look at that innovation the next iteration of that coming is easy and we will be the first all easy branded jam and we will potentially be the first luxury brand. That's all the so as we look at that..

That i always uses the super bowl because everyone wants to watch the commercials at the super bowl so what we do and what our processes is. We basically understand who our audience is. I call them are our future cadillac owners. And i take those future cadillac owners and i try to understand where they're going to be How they're consuming media how they're entertaining themselves. Then i try to be in those places but to do it in a different so that it really breaks through a recent example of this is we are launching. The lyric cadillacs first electric vehicle yen. Very excited about it and as we were working on this launch One of the initiatives we have is when when we looked in our database in. We looked at who are future. V owners are culinary index really high. And so we ask the question. If that's true what would we possibly do. That would make those two things collide and we did something called of the lyric electric kitchen and we worked with two michelin star chefs in l. A. and we had the designers of the vehicle. Show them the vehicle and they came up with dishes that were inspired by the vehicle. We want so. Some examples are just the shapes of the food that came from shapes within the vehicle. There was some effervescence really into some of the dishes that that really are the spoke of the grill. That lights up. The lighting choreography on. This car is incredible So there were all these pieces that were pulled into the different dishes. It was really a culinary journey..

"cadillac" Discussed on Insider Interviews

"Melissa grady ds. I have listened to a few interviews with you in preparing for this episode. Which i'm very eager to do and there are two lines that jumped out at me. Both seem to be kind of emblematic of your personal brand as chief marketing officer of cadillac and of the cadillac brand message. So i want to quote this one's from an interview. You did with jim stengel. You said my job is to make people understand. What a great bad ass brand cadillac. Is i love that. Thank you is what my job is well. It seems that you're doing it very well. And then this line was actually said by tiffany haddish in one of the recent spots for cadillac. That you built. She said sometimes you have to take the wheel and sometimes you just have to let it go. I love that to to do. Write that because that sounds like your mantra. I did not write that. He's not right that but my mantra is an exactly where i'm supposed to be which i think ties into that pretty well. Sometimes you gotta crowd wheeled. Sometimes you just have to let it go so yeah those. Those are two very good centering.

Gunnery Sergeant Jessie Jane Duff Describes When She Knew She Was Different

"Welcome back to one on one with Marine Corps guttery sergeant Jesse Jane Duff. All right, so you joined the Marine Corps, Jesse James, you don't have driver's license. I want to give you MOS transport. They're going to be driving stuff. Big rigs. I got to ask you first because I'm just curious. What was your favorite thing to drive of all the rigs? Oh, they probably the Mac that when we at least a Mac truck at my commercial motor pole at camp Pendleton base motor transport. They at least a Mac at one time, and let me tell you there was nothing like it. It's like the Cadillac 20 feet up in the air. But I can tell you two of my favorite experiences. One was when I was driving. It was probably a flat nose white. I don't recall the tractor that I was in. And I was hauling heavy equipment to an Air Force Base outside of riverside, California to get offloaded onto a aircraft. And I have to drive through commercial streets, civilian streets, and I didn't have a concept of how I looked. I didn't realize I was pretty. I really didn't. I wasn't even allowed to date for goodness. Yes. Protective family. Straight into the moon. I mean, I knew I wasn't ugly, but I just did. So what happened? Well, so two things. Well, one. What are you wearing? Are you in common? Yeah, it's always in camouflage. So to experiences, being naive like that was very good for me because I was never arrogant or big headed, and I never thought I could. Manipulate people. No, I was always like, I got to prove myself. I got to work harder. Always. I was always like a maniac. So I'm driving this tractor trailer. Now remember looking at the roads and how the navigate the turn. This is a long trailer. And I look down and there's a civilian lady. She looks up at me. Her eyes pop out of her head. Her jaw drops, and then she gives me the biggest thumbs up, you would ever see. Like, she just thought that was so cool 'cause the side of the truck said the United States Marine Corps. I'm in camouflage. The second experience was offloading heavy equipment and, oh, no, to pick up equipment from an infantry unit in 29 palms. So I get out there, that's the desert. I have to back up into and I'm backing up into the dock to load up their hummers. They're humvees. And I jump out of the truck and the look on their faces was absolute shock. Now I'm a sergeant at this point. Marines are professionals. You hear all these horror stories from I'm sorry. In the Marine Corps, they see your rank, you don't hear a PEEP of disrespect. And I'm out of that truck and they'll look on their faces was seriously. She's gonna hold us out of here. You could just see it. And I said, all right, double dogs. I need to get you to drive up the hummers onto the trailer. And they're waiting for me to ask for help to chain it down. But we don't do that. When you're trained in the motor pool, you're taught how to chain down your gear. And again, I'm not thinking I'm a lady opened the door for me or help me. It was a different mindset. And then they stood there and watched me get the underneath those at the chains and then take the break apart, pull it in and clamp them all down all two or three hummers. And then I said, anybody want to ride back to camp Pendleton and that one of them had the balls to get on that truck. And I roll back to campell, guys, I'll see you there. And then they offloaded. But I would say those stood out to me because that's when I realized I was different.

Social Democrats narrowly beat Angela Merkel's alliance in historic German election

"Social democrat. Party in germany narrowly won. Sunday's national election projected results showed and claimed a clear mandate to lead a government for the first time since two thousand five and to end sixteen years of conservative-led rule under angela. Merckel the left. Social democrats were untracked for twenty six percent of the vote ahead of twenty four and a half percent for merckel cd. Ucs you conservative bloc but both groups believed they could lead the next government with need major block. Commanding majority in both reluctance repeats their awkward grand coalition of the past. Four years. Most likely outcome is a three way. Alliance led by either the social democrats or merkel's conservatives agreeing new coalition could take months and will likely involve the smaller greens and liberal free democrats. We are ahead in all the surveys. Now the social democrats chancellor candidate olaf scholz said in a round table discussion with other candidates after the vote. The spd's rise heralds a swing left for germany and marks a remarkable comeback for the party which has recovered some ten points in support in just three months to improve on its twenty and a half percent results in the 2017.

Biden slips into political quicksand amid Haitian migrant buildup

"Starting off the show. Tonight we have a discussion about joe biden. Apparently he's doing more deportations than trump specifically deporting more asylum seekers than trump did well. Yeah we don't have the other categories of deportations as the numbers that That we came across. And it's a shocking number. I don't know the entire number. But i have here the us Moved over six thousand. Haitian asylum-seekers from the border at del rio so that's just haitian asylum-seekers just recently with you know the whip's did see that. Oh i saw that very scary stuff. There was ice agents. I guess they're ice. Sported patrol agents. Scroll on horseback whipping people catalyst. Yeah like cadillac. Wrangling them with whips and hitting them with the long whip. It looked incredibly frightening and in and scary to be in that situation with a bunch of armed men on horses attacking people who are just trying to escape the hellish life of living in haiti. And do you think the biden voters expected this to happen because the people on the left like biden love to position themselves as the friend of the immigrants they acted like trump was the worst for immigration and right immigration. I mean right. When joe biden got elected like somebody. I know got a deportation letter. Just and they're telling him oh. It's been a lot worse recently under biden. They told him that his friends sorry like his friends. That like is also a legal immigrant. Types may know some other people like that well according to the same place that you're looking here. It's says twitter account. Aj plus they're citing cnbc saying that biden is using what's called title forty two to expel asylum-seekers without a right to a hearing so you know what asylum is right. Yeah when you leave somewhere that is you're gonna die there or they're gonna put you in prison for the rest of your life or thereafter you for for whatever reason and the numbers here are just shocking. According to cnbc under trump and remember trump had four full years. And we're not even through year number one biden four hundred and forty th over four hundred. Forty thousand people were Were expelled under this title. Forty two during the trump administration and six hundred ninety thousand have been expelled under the biden administration under title forty two so that's a tremendous level of increase because if if biden is able to keep up the same amount over the next three years. Yeah he'd be like twenty four hundred weight. It was six hundred ninety thousand right now so yeah that'd be well over two million people well so you know that is just absolutely horrifying because these people if they are indeed being prosecuted or persecuted. They're going to be sent back to likely their deaths or likely to a prison cell. Yeah it's probably worse for you if you try to leave and then they find out about that absolutely it is. Let's see there's other story here from cnbc biden. Administration appeals judges order. This is from less than a week ago to stop. Expelling migrants under trump era pandemic policies. So there was a judge who said they need to stop using title forty. Two and biden is appealing so this is yet another example of how joe biden is more like trumpy than the trump haters thought. That trump was like people hated trump for all these different reasons and biden has continued trump's policies and crank them up. Yeah my friend. Sent me this weird video of biden today. It was him when he was younger. You know he. He's always been in government office. So i don't know what his title was at the time but he was being interviewed. Probably a senator or something. Yeah and he was saying he was saying. What do people think. I care more about bosnia than haiti because it's white people in bosnia and it's you know black people in haiti and then he just went on and said well if haiti sank into the ocean. I wouldn't care just like that was his answer to that was like what is that supposed to mean. Well i'll tell you clear what it means. It means he has no empathy right to say that about another an entire group of people living somewhere on the planet to say they just if they just all died one day he would have no concern whatsoever for that and you juxtapose that against what he says while he's running for office which is to make himself seem like this all caring. Oh the democrats we care about people that's clearly. Bs tel aviv From penn and teller thought he was going to heal us all with his love. Is that what taylor said. Y- you read that on the show. It was numbered teller's lider new saying let pendulum but tell her was going along with pen from what i could see. So presumably teller didn't disagree otherwise he wouldn't have been in the photo op. Yeah just mixed them up. Sorry according to the story here. Cnbc biden administration appealing. A judge's order to stop using a trump era pandemic policy that allows for the rapid expulsion of migrants without giving them a chance to apply for asylum. So they're using covert as the excuse. The departments for his just cove it. That's why we had to have horseback riders with the because of it. It's just you covered. The department of justice filed an appeal of district. Judge emmet sullivan's ruling thursday bars. The federal government from expelling migrants under the public health law known as title. Forty two sullivan. The ruling to go into effect in fourteen days the appeal is the latest move by the bided administration to address the twenty year high surge of migrants from mexico and central america crossing the border illegally which remains a political flashpoint between republicans and progressive democrats title forty two is first introduced by donald trump in march of twenty twenty over concerns about the corona virus pandemic. It gave the government the power to turn back any migrant caught crossing the border illegally regardless of their country of origin to supposedly stop cove nineteen. So if you had managed to escape from north korea and you made it to the united states which is no easy task. Mind you. it's one thing to get here from haiti or guatemala. Or duress or something. It's a whole other story to get here from north korea. But if he'd managed to and they caught. You did it cover. Nineteen you gotta go back to north korea and you back to north korea where you would certainly either be put into a hellish prison labor camp and then of course all your family members have probably already been put into a prison labor camp. Because that's what they that's how they roll over north korea. If you try to escape or you do something bad. They punish your whole family for it. So you know you're going to prison and it's going to be like the worst possible prison labor camp experience basically on the planet right now if they don't just go right ahead and just summarily execute you but this quote from a man at the border a haitian man with two children.

A Look at Farallon Industries

A Look at Farallon Industries

"Couple of months ago. I told you about a guy who dropped off some vintage scuba quip at the shop. One of the regulators was an old poseidon cyclone and that spurred me to segment on poseidon here on the show. I also mentioned that the cyclone was complete with a set of farallon gauges and that there were a pair of farah line fins that were unfortunately torn so they got me thinking about doing some additional research on fairlon and doing a segment here on the show. I gotta tell you. Researching on industries was a bit of a challenge. It was difficult for me to piece the information together. So some of this may be a little bit out of sequence. Let's start at the beginning. Or what i think is the beginning from my research. I believe it was somewhere around. Nineteen sixty nine. That guy named ralph osterhaudt was working on a diver propulsion vehicle or dp that he called the mark one. It seems that this was pretty successful. Product and the us navy decided to purchase two dp marquand from ralph and it appears that that's when he started foulon industries. Farallon is the name of a small group of islands about twenty six miles due west of san francisco. I wasn't familiar with the farallon islands but found out some interesting stuff about them from what i read. They were originally called the islands of the dead by native americans and then given the name farallon meaning cliffs by the spanish. I'm not exactly sure. Why ralph named is company farallon industries. Farallon was based in belmont california which is between san francisco in palo alto on the san francisco bay side. The address was listed as one three three three old country road. But when i google map data address it came up with one three three three county road now. I like to take a look at the street view at these locations to see what it looks like today and today one three three three county road in belmont california looks like a self storage facility. One of the ways that i researched founded on industries was to look back at old trademark registrations impacts when registering a trademark or patent near sometimes a description of the business on one of those registrations the businesses described as as a california corporation producing goods and services for skin and scuba divers equipment namely self-propelled vehicles for transporting scuba divers. Interestingly i saw a fair aligned dp up for auction just yesterday. I think one of their most famous patents was also in early one. It looks like it was around seventy one and that was the shock dart famous because of its uses a prop in nineteen seventy five blockbuster draws the shark dart is described in the patent as a compressed gas injector weapon including parts. Therefore you may also see these come up for auction from time to time and complete rig gets pretty pretty expensive now. There were a whole lot of patent issued to caroline industries in the nineteen seventies. It looks like it looks like there was another row involved with foulon who is also inventor and that was ralph sham champion in an old article that i read who's identified as the president of farah line industries and was listed on a number of different patents. So let's take a look at some of these products in one thousand nine hundred seventy four. It looks like they submitted a patent for a decompression indicating instrument and it said it was an analog computer then in one thousand nine hundred seventy five. They produced a pressure gauge and started to design fins over time. They introduced the farah thin the fahrenheit which was a rechargeable hand-held light and then in one thousand nine hundred seventy eight farallon industries was issued a patent for a pilot regulator that said it incorporated a novel valve assembly in the second stage in the form of a unique main diaphragm valve and a pilot valve assembly. Now i did try to trace. What actually happened to farrell on. There's some indication that it was acquired by a company called tacna. But if you look on the oceanic website they say that. Bob hollis took a big step forward with oceanic when he acquired foulon industries around nineteen seventy six giving oceanic full line of scuba equipment with an innovative line of instrumentation products. I'm not exactly sure when oceanic stop branding their products with the farallon logo. I did find a price list and catalog. from nineteen seventy eight. They're still showed a lot of the farallon. Products including their low profile pragmatic mask their patented molded mouthpiece swim snorkel. The farah light farah fins and all their instrumentation they were also still producing four versions of their diver propulsion vehicle. The mark to the mark sri mark for mark five. Interestingly in that cadillac. I did see that. Both the farallon. An oceanic logos were shown together. And oh by the way you could still get the shark dot and he came in two flavors the magnum supreme in the magnum super. Well i knew. When i started this research on farallon line industries that would be a little more challenging than some of the other companies that i've researched farah line. Industries wasn't around very long but it looks like they did some really interesting

AJ Had a Fascination With 'Freaks' as a Kid

"I had a fascination with freaks as a kid. You know, Siamese twins and fat people and short people, people in the arms and legs. My father had these stories about all the freaks he saw at Coney Island. He was a kid, Coney Island, Brooklyn, on the boardwalk, they were freak shows. You play a nickel you walk in, you see the Siamese twins, you see the dog faced girl. Always create the guy who rolled cigarettes with his lips 'cause his hands and arms and legs were gone. Caterpillar man, crazy people. The world's tallest man married to the world's fattest woman, that kind of shit. So I'm ten years old or so, and I saw a book. There was a catalog back in my day. I just remembered this. It was a Cadillac called the JD Smith catalog. I've been a lot of you right now but holy shit I forgot about that. In the JD Smith catalog, where pictures of all these things you could order. And back then, things took 6 weeks to get to your fucking house. And your mother would pay for them by check, no credit card. You'd have to check the envelope in the mail with a stamp and wait. Couldn't call anybody one day it appeared three months later. Oh my God, I forgot this. It was magic kids. It was all this kind of disappear ink. This purple lengthy spray on people's shirts, and they want to kill it, and then it slowly goes away. Just stupid shit like that. And in that catalog, what this book about freaks, and it was called freaks. Inside the book, it finally got to the house. My mother, I'm not buying you this shit, ma. I gotta see this. Look at Johnny eck. Look at ching and ing, the Siamese twins connected at the head. There was Julia Pastrana, the dog faced woman. Grace mcdaniel the ugliest woman in the world. So many in that, so I love that book. For about 12 years old, I couldn't put it down for two years. I carried

I'm really excited to get into talking about the technology but before we do that could you tell our listeners. A little bit about yourself. Yes i will. And the reality is i went back in to a few of your episodes. Just gotta sensor style. So i have to think about the answer a little bit more honestly than i thought. I was too and made me do soul-searching ashley because the answer i originally had was quite technical and kind of boring but the real answer. Once i thought about it was i with a grandmother who is in a wheelchair and to be blunt. She's really my only in for And it wasn't that she was in a wheelchair that identified or it was. She led her life and in a wheelchair and then let her hold her back. It was the first time i've ever seen technology. This was back in eighties and nineties and she was in wheelchair and at eighty. She would drive for five thousand miles every year and she had a cadillac. Big old cadillac. I remember the old green cadillac. Vote and then. She'd had this little tree on the back and then she'd go on this like huge road trip and she had a special thing that allowed her to drive a car. It was way back. I if i describe it but yeah the water to drive cars hand right. And that's where. I realize that technology could change. Like technology changed the picture for people right in the sense that technology can adopt to the user like for example my new software blind people actually have an advantage.

"cadillac" Discussed on NASCAR on NBC

"We have. Laura want closer. Who was recently named the sports car racing program manager for general motorist racing. and laura. I just wanna start out. Thanks for being here. Thanks for having me. This is really exciting right well. I know that you're down. Daytona beach is well been exciting week for you and the race pergram. I want to get to that. But let's just start i without you. Were just recently named sports car racing program manager for general motors prior to that you were the program manager for gm's cadillac. Dpi program in the weathertech sportscar championship series. So just tell us about your job your role and how it's changed in the last week with this new position. Sure yes so by going over to be the sports car racing program manager in simple terms. What has happened is i now have all of our sports car programs which includes cadillac. Of course the camaro gt four program. And then the big one that i just picked up corvette which thrilled to be a part of of that team in that program and essentially the roles the same except just working with the different teams <hes> program manager's job at gm. We control the budget for the various programs. And that's laid out differently depending on if it's a customer program or factory program or you how we want to do that and then we also are the single point contact for the teams back to gm and also for the chassis suppliers and engine suppliers is so if they have any questions or any concerns that they want to relay back they see you go through me and then i'll take it to what i need to do. Either make a decision or or go above me. If i need to to solve a problem and then also very much. Integrated into design and development of the race cars at this point for all of those three programs. I just mentioned the cars are done. Which is exciting. So the new design and development. That i'll hopefully be getting into will be anything we do for future programs. Which is something that i'm involved in you know looking at. What would we like to do for from gm's perspective. Where do we wanna race. What brands do we want to race. All of that in the sports car arena. So it's nice. I have all different things. I get to be focused on which keeps the days different every single one and also keeps it so that i never get bored. Doing one thing like you said i mean. You've had a lot to your plate here with this new role. Previously mentioned you oversaw cadillac. And now. you've got corvette racing under your umbrella as well general question like how many people would you say you over at the company. I know you work with teams. So i guess it's probably different than if you were like a team manager but like in your role as a as a program manager that works with several sports teams. How many people would you say. You're you're looking here that's a. That's a good question <hes>. If you count the teams is being part of the family. Which very much do even though. I'm not gonna go tell a mechanic what to do. That's not my job. But you know i wanna make sure that i look out for all them. Each team is at least you know what the rolex bring more people but twenty thirty people depending and then. What is this year at the rolex we have nine cars three camaros for lax and two corvettes. So i guess if you add it all up it's quite a few people especially with delara and ecr and then our engine team at gm included in there <hes>. But like i said i. I don't really directly manage you. Know what the teams do in terms of telling the mechanics how to put the wheel on or anything along those lines. It's more so just giving them the connection. And then i control the purse strings for a lot of it especially the corvette program so you know ultimately it's like one of those love hate relationships. We have to work together to each. Get what we need
