"By the way we should mention some other vaccine news on wednesday officials in the u k approve the vaccine developed by pfizer. Emergency use in that country. That is one of two vaccine still awaiting emergency approval here in the us. That approval has to come from the fda in the meantime the cdc committee. We just told you about still has a lot of work to do in terms of deciding how the vaccine rollout should progress in the early part of next year one of the doctors on that committee is robert atmar of baylor college of medicine in houston he spoke to. Npr's mary louise kelley about what's next. So let's start with the The recommendations from from this panel yesterday it makes total sense that healthcare workers should get first access and then who next. That's something that we've had some preliminary discussions on but have not yet determined the. Please fire department Teachers and other people in central positions might be in the next group followed by persons with underlying diseases that put them at greater risk of complications or death including persons age of sixty five. Do you still have outstanding questions about either of these. Two leading vaccine candidates That that you would want answers to before vaccinating say your colleagues at baylor medicine. I will want to review the data and particularly the safety data We know that individuals will have some side effects. I think knowing exactly what the actions are to be expected will reassure individuals who are going to receive the vaccine i ask. Are you hearing any hesitation among staff people saying. I'm not sure. I want to be in the very first group. Let me see how it goes for a couple of weeks We're hearing a lot of hesitation among health care personnel. And i think a lot of it has to do with the plo sized nature of the vaccine development in the whole response to the pandemic so were beginning to roll out education to reassure. The there weren't any steps that were skipped but because of the severity of the pandemic one person a minute dying in the united states each day it really is important to try and take steps that will be effective in preventing disease if you are hearing hesitation. Even from healthcare workers from frontline people at at baylor. How do you expect to persuade the rest of texas. The wider population well the healthcare workers. I've spoken to who have expressed concern to me. I don't necessarily want to be in the first group even though they're prioritized for the first group but want to see for themselves how their friends and colleagues respond to the vaccine. I understand that's human nature. But i certainly plan on being a model if either vaccine becomes available and is recommended by the demonstrate my confidence and the vaccine and the whole review and approval process. You'll be as close to the front lines as you're able to get correct. Dr robert atmar with baylor college of medicine in houston so vaccines will be available to healthcare workers and those in long term care facilities will be mandatory in hospital settings. It's pretty likely flu. Vaccines already are mandatory for some healthcare employees a mandatory covid nation in any other workplace and whether employers could require. It is a huge open question. Here's npr's andrea shoe only a couple of months into the pandemic. Hollie smith had made up her mind. Her restaurant cafe. Juanita kirkland washington would not reopened a diner's until there was a covid nineteen vaccine. She's already told her staff. You are going to get vaccinated. Some of my young millennials are like. I'm taking this as a directive like as a mandate. Is that how you made it. It's scary thing you know really. Yeah yes yes. Smith had twenty eight employees before the pandemic. She's had to lay off all but five. Her dining spot has become a takeout. Only business even with a much smaller staff. Smith is serious about safety. She requires her workers to get tested if they go on vacation with people outside their bubble or if they're showing any sign of illness. I believe in civil liberties and all those different things but you know we have people who lived with their parents. We have people who live with a husband who has diabetes. The staff have to be healthy and safe before you can move forward. She says you know four vaccinated move out in the world and be responsible for these twenty eight or thirty people plus all the people coming in now. If you're wondering. Can she actually do this. Can she require her workers to get vaccinated answer appears to be yes but her workers also have the right to request exemptions under federal law. Someone could say. I have a medical or religious reasons. I can't be vaccinated and companies must try to provide accommodations. It's incredibly hard to manage. A mandate johnny taylor. Junior is president of the society for human resource management. He says each requests must be evaluated on its own merit now. Imagine if there were hundreds of them. A recent poll found four in ten americans. Don't want the vaccine though that polling was done before anyone knew how well the vaccines would work so. This is a true headache for hr professionals. That's why you're likely to see. Many companies strongly encourage the vaccine but stops short of mandating. It take for example. The pork producer smithfield the company told. Npr they're not anticipating a firm mandate but they want to offer the vaccine onsite even with all the headaches. Taylor things many employers will go for the mandate after all they have an obligation to get rid of any known hazards in the workplace like cova. It's real and it's devastating. So i think that dynamic changes employers are actually going to position this as i need to do this full stop. Now there are some workplaces that already mandate the flu vaccine most commonly hospitals. Dr james mcdevitt is dean of clinical affairs at baylor college of medicine in houston. He says the annual flu shot is required for some fourteen thousand people. Doctors nurses med students clerks. That are sitting in a computer. That don't see visions. It's the right thing to do for society. He says if you claim exemption you have to wear a mask now with the covid vaccine baylor is not going to make it mandatory until they can actually get enough supply to cover everyone and until it's been deemed safe not just by the fda mcdevitt says but by his own colleagues johnny taylor. Junior says whatever companies decide there are likely to be challenges and so congress and state legislators are going to have to think about how to offer some protection on both sides legal protection for companies that mandate the vaccine in case. Someone has a bad reaction even though you will have to sign a waiver before you get the shot. They also got to protect the employers. Who decided not to make it a mandate and then who were sued by employees contract. It taylor has been meeting with federal employment officials telling them employers want to do the right thing but they're in a tough spot and they're going to need help getting through this..

"With us. It's all things considered from NPR news. I'm Mary Louise Kelly in Washington and I'm Elsa Chang in Los Angeles. President Trump has issued a pardon to his first national security adviser, Michael Flynn. Flynn had pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI and then recanted. This ends a years long saga, which NPR's Ryan Lucas has been long following and he joins us now. Hey, Ryan, either Right. So the president's partner for Flynn just happened this afternoon. What do we know at this point? Well, the president announced this on Twitter as he is want to do. Hey says in the tweet that it is a great honor to announce that he has granted a full pardon. To Flynn. He sends his congratulations to Flint and his family and says, quote. I know you will now have a truly fantastic Thanksgiving. I will say this pardon is not a surprise. This is something that was widely expected in Flynn's lawyer actually had even acknowledged in court this fall that she had, actually, indeed. Spoken with the president about a possible pardon. Okay, Can you just give us a mini refresher course For a moment? It feels like this Flynn case has been going on and on forever remind us what Flynn was originally prosecuted for. This has been a bit of illegal Soviet. No doubt Flynn Flynn was the only member of the Trump administration actually, who was charged as part of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation. He pleaded guilty in 2017 tow line to the FBI about his contacts with the Russian ambassador at the time, Sergei Kislyak. Those were conversations that took place during the transition period. So after Trump had been elected, but before he took office, Flynn pleaded guilty and agreed to cooperate with investigators with investigators and he did so extensively. Right. Okay. So he cooperated with Mueller's team but has now been pardoned. But Ah, federal judge in D. C is still weighing his case. Right? Did I get that right? That's right. This has been a long and when he wrote to get to this point, Flynn was actually in court almost two years ago, now 47 scene but that was abruptly put off to allow Flynn to complete his cooperation. On on a couple of other cases. Ah, few months. After that, Flynn changed. His lawyers dumped his previous legal team brought on a new legal team, and he completely changed his tune. After that, he proclaimed his innocents on said that he was set up by the FBI that he was in trapped. He even went so far as to try to withdraw his guilty plea. Before all of that could play out. Attorney General William Barr moved to drop the department's case against Flynn Bar said that Flynn never should have been prosecuted in the first place. The presiding judge, as you mentioned before, refused to drop this case immediately. He said that he wanted to take a closer look at the department stated reasons for this. Ultimately, as of today, the judge still has not granted that motion to dismiss. He is still weighing what to do. In that case now, naturally, it's a it's a moot point. The president has acted. He's taken political responsibility for this. And Clayton Flynn, of course, now has his pardon in hand, right? Well, overall, How would you say this case has been handled by the Department of Justice? This has been a difficult case for the Justice Department. It has been caught up from the beginning. Essentially in in bitter political battle that we've seen take place in Washington. Flynn, the president and his allies portray Flynn here as a victim of the Justice Department of the FBI of what the president would call a witch hunt a hoax. Meanwhile, the attorney general's decision, which was highly unusual to intervene in this case, and to try to drop it after Flynn had pleaded guilty caused an uproar in critics said This looks a lot like a political favor to a friend of the president. Well, this is of course, the first part in that we have seen from President Trump's since the election. Should we be anticipating many more? This is the first of what we expect to be a number of pardons. Yes, there are a number of people who the president is friends with who could expect to pardon some top names were looking at former Trump Campaign Chairman Paul Manafort. The president's former political adviser, Steve Bannon, who is facing federal charges in New York. There is also of course, the possibility that the president could pardon his family preemptively and the possibility for the president to try to pardon himself before he leaves office. That is NPR. Justice correspondent Ryan Lucas. Thank you, Ryan. Thank you. Encourage or require. That is a dilemma Many employers are facing as a covert 19 vaccine comes closer to reality. Ah, quarter million people in the U. S have died from Cove it once there's a shot can that can prevent illness Should it be mandatory in the workplace? NPR's Andrea Hsu has more Only a couple of months into the pandemic. Holly Smith had made up her mind. Her restaurant Cafe Juanita in Kirkland. Washington, would not reopen the diners until there was a covert 19 vaccine. She's already told her staff you are going to get vaccinated. Some of my young millennials are like, so I'm taking this is a directive like as a mandate. Is that how you mean it? And it's that's a scary thing. You know, like Yeah. Yes, yes, Smith had 28 employees before the pandemic. She's had to lay off all but five. Her fine dining spot has become a take out on Lee business. Even with a much smaller staff, Smith is serious about safety. She requires her workers to get tested. If they go on vacation with people outside their bubble, or if they're showing any sign of illness, I believe in civil liberties and all those different things. But you know, we have people who live with their parents. We have people who lived with her husband, who has died. It is the staff have to be healthy and safe before you could move forward, she says. You know, for vaccinated. I think I can move out in the world and be responsible for these 28 or 30 people. Plus all the people coming in Now, if you're wondering, Can she actually do this? Can she require her workers to get vaccinated? The answer appears to be yes. But her workers also have the right to request exemptions. Under federal law. Someone could say I have a medical or religious reason I can't be vaccinated and companies must try to provide accommodations. It's incredibly hard to manage a mandate. Johnnie Taylor Jr is president of the Society for Human Resource Management. He says Each requests must be evaluated on its own merits. Now imagine if there were hundreds of them. A recent poll found four in 10. Americans don't want the vaccine, though that polling was done before anyone knew how well the vaccines would work. So this is a true headache for HR professionals. That's why you're likely to see many companies strongly encourage the vaccine, but stopped short of mandating it. Take, for example, the pork producers Smithfield, the company told NPR. They're not anticipating a firm mandate, but they want to offer the vaccine on site. Even with all the headaches, Taylor things many employers will go for the mandate. After all, they have an obligation to get rid of any known hazards in the workplace like Covad. It's real and it's devastating. So I think the dynamic changes. Employers are actually going to position this as I need to do this full stop. Now. There are some workplaces that already mandate the flu vaccine, most commonly hospitals. Dr. James McDevitt is dean of clinical affairs at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston. He says the annual flu shot is required for some 14,000 people, doctors, nurses, med students, even the clerks. They're sitting in a computer that don't see live patients. It's the right thing to do for society, he says. If you claim an exemption, you have to wear a mask. Now with the covert vaccine. Baylor is not going to make it mandatory until they can actually get enough supply to cover everyone and until it's been deemed safe, not just by the FDA, McDivitt says, but by his own colleagues. Johnny Taylor Jr says. Whatever companies decide there are likely to be challenges. And so Congress and state legislators are going to have to think about how to offer some protection on both sides. Legal protection for companies that mandate the vaccine in case someone has a bad reaction. Even though you will have to sign a waiver before you get the shot. They've also gotta protect the employers who decide not to make it. Mandate and then who are sued by employees who contracted Taylor has been meeting with federal employment officials telling them employers want to do the right thing, but they're in a tough spot, and they're going to need help getting through this. Andrea Hsu NPR news In a surprise announcement today, the Trump Administration has denied a permit for the Pebble Mine in Alaska. The proposed open pit gold mine would have been one of the largest in North America..

"Or g'kar. Six minutes now, past six o'clock, This is KQED. It's all things considered from NPR news. I'm Mary Louise Kelly in Washington and I'm Elsa Chang in Los Angeles. President Trump has issued a pardon to his first national security adviser, Michael Flynn. Flynn had pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI and then recanted. This ends a years long saga, which MPR's Ryan Lucas has been long following and he joins us now he Ryan either. All right, So the president's partner for Flynn just happened this afternoon. What do we know at this point? The president announced this on Twitter, as he is wont to do. Hey says in the tweet that it is a great honor to announce that he has granted a full pardon to Flynn. He sends his congratulations to Flint and his family and says, quote I know you will now have a truly fantastic Thanksgiving. I will say this pardon is not a surprise. This is something that was widely expected on Flynn's lawyer actually had even acknowledged in court this fall that she had actually indeed spoken with the president about a possible partner, Okay? Can you just give us a mini refresher course For a moment? It feels like this Flynn case has been going on and on forever remind us what Flynn was originally prosecuted for. This has been a bit of illegal Soviet Flynn Flynn was the only member of the Trump administration actually, who was charged as part of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation. He pleaded guilty in 2017 tow line to the FBI about his contacts with the Russian ambassador at the time, Sergei Kislyak. Those were conversations that took place during the transition period. So after Trump had been elected, But before he took office, Um Flynn pleaded guilty and agreed to cooperate with investigators with investigators. And he did so extensively right? Okay. So he cooperated with Mueller's team but has now been pardoned. But Ah, federal judge in D. C is still weighing his case. Right? Did I get that right? That's right. This has been a long and one he wrote. To get to this point. Flynn was actually in court almost two years ago, now four sentence scene. But that was abruptly put off to allow Flynn to complete his cooperation on on a couple of other cases. Ah, few months After that, Flynn changed, his lawyers dumped his previous legal team brought on a new legal team. And he completely changed his tune. After that, he proclaimed his innocents on said that he was set up by the FBI that he was entrapped. He even went so far as to try to withdraw his guilty plea. Before all of that could play out. Attorney General William Barr moved to drop the department's case against Flynn Bar said that Flynn never should have been prosecuted in the first place. The presiding judge, as you mentioned before, refused to drop this case immediately. He said that he wanted to take a closer look at the department stated reasons for this. Ultimately, as of today, the judge still has not granted that motion to dismiss. He is still weighing what to do. In that case now, naturally, it's a it's a moot point. The president has acted. He's taken political responsibility for this. And Clayton Flynn, of course, now has his pardon in hand, right? Well, overall, How would you say this case has been handled by the Department of Justice? This has been a difficult case for the Justice Department. It has been caught up from the beginning, essentially in in bitter political battle that we've seen take place in Washington. Flynn, the president and his allies portray offline here as a victim of the Justice Department of the FBI of what the president would call a witch hunt the hoax. Meanwhile, the attorney general's decision which was highly unusual to intervene in this case, and to try to drop it. After Flynn had pleaded guilty caused an uproar in critics said, This looks a lot like a political favor to a friend of the president. Well, this is of course, the first part in that we have seen from President Trump's since the election. Should we be anticipating many more This is the first of what we expect to be a number of partners. Yes, there are a number of people who the president is friends with who could expect a pardon. Some top names were looking at former Trump Campaign Chairman Paul Manafort. The president's former political adviser, Steve Bannon, who is facing federal charges in New York. There is also of course, the possibility that the president could pardon his family preemptively and the possibility for the president to try to pardon himself before he leaves office. That is NPR. Justice correspondent Ryan Lucas. Thank you, Ryan. Thank you. Encourage or require. That is a dilemma Many employers are facing as a covert 19 vaccine comes closer to reality. Ah, quarter million people in the U. S have died from Cove it once there's a shot can that can prevent illness should it be mandatory in the workplace? NPR's Andrea Hsu has more on Lee. A couple of months into the pandemic, Holly Smith had made up her mind. Restaurant Cafe Juanita in Kirkland, Washington would not reopen to diners until there was a covert 19 vaccine. She's already told her staff you are going to get vaccinated. Some of my young millennials are like so run taking. This is a directive like as a mandate. Is that how you mean it? And it's that's a scary thing. You know, like, Yeah. Yes, yes, Smith had 28 employees before the pandemic. She's had to lay off all but five. Her fine dining spot has become a take out on Lee business. Even with a much smaller staff, Smith is serious about safety. She requires her workers to get tested. If they go on vacation with people outside their bubble, or if they're showing any sign of illness. I believe in civil liberties and all those different things, but You know, we have people who live with their parents..

Plus all the people coming in. Now, if you're wondering, Can she actually do this? Can she require her workers to get vaccinated? The answer appears to be yes, but her workers also have the right to request exemptions. Under federal law. Someone could say I have a medical or religious reason I can't be vaccinated and companies must try to provide accommodations. It's incredibly hard to manage a mandate. Johnnie Taylor Jr is president of the Society for Human Resource Management, He says Each request must be evaluated on its own merits. Now imagine if there were hundreds of them. A recent poll found four in 10. Americans don't want the vaccine, though that polling was done before anyone knew how well the vaccines would work. So this is a true headache for HR professionals. That's why you're likely to see many companies strongly encourage the vaccine, but stopped short of mandating it. Take, for example, the pork producers Smithfield, the company told NPR. They're not anticipating a firm mandate, but they want to offer the vaccine on site. Even with all the headaches, Taylor things many employers will go for the mandate.

It's the right thing to do for society, he says. If you claim an exemption, you have to wear a mask. Now with the covert vaccine. Baylor is not going to make it mandatory until they can actually get enough supply to cover everyone and until it's been deemed safe, not just by the FDA, McDivitt says, but by his own colleagues. Johnny Taylor Jr says. Whatever companies decide there are likely to be challenges. And so Congress and state legislators are going to have to think about how to offer some protection on both sides.

They've also gotta protect the employers who decide not to make it.

Andrea Hsu NPR news In a surprise announcement today, the Trump Administration has denied a permit for the Pebble Mine in Alaska. The proposed open pit gold mine would have been one of the largest in North America. Alaska Public Media's Liz Ruskin reports at many points during the Trump presidency, It has appeared that the permit was certain to be granted. But the Army Corps of Engineers determined the mind plan would not comply with the Clean Water Act and that the project is not in the public interest. Fishermen and tribes in Bristol Bay have been fighting the mind for more than a decade, fearing it would degrade the rich salmon runs that are at the heart of the area's economy and indigenous culture. Sport fishermen come from all over the world to stay at lodges in the area for a chance at landing a record Cojo or rainbow trout, Nancy Morris Lion and Bear Trail Lodging. King Salmon Got the news by text. It is an incredible relief. I felt like sitting down and just crying Well, lion says The prospect of the mine has held the whole region hostage for years. Lodge owners like her didn't know if they could invest in their businesses. The president's oldest son and avid hunter and fisherman is credited with galvanizing the Trump administration against the project, Lion, says Donald Trump Jr and his brother, Eric stayed with her about eight years ago. I always said that I had faith that after they had visited here, and they spent time here The state. He understood that this place didn't need something like that. Marring it, starring at ruining it forever. Pebble Limited partnership says it's not giving up and is focusing on a possible appeal of the Army cores decision. The company says the project would provide hundreds of good jobs. But they were more questions about the lasting impact of the mine. When secret recordings emerged this fall, Pebble executives were caught saying that they ultimately planned a much larger mind than they had requested A permit for For now, the Army course decision appears to be a death blow for the pebble mine. The incoming Biden administration is likely to oppose the project, as the Obama administration did. For NPR news. I'm Liz Ruskin in Washington..

"You wanna be a part of the conversation tonight go ahead shoot us attacks you can ask us questions if there's anything on your mind we've been we've we've really enjoyed hearing from you guys and and the things that you want to know and and being able to sort of interject those throughout the show sometimes we'll you know we'll have a whole segment where we kind of just just that's all we do but it's been really great to sort of know what questions you guys have the things that you're feeling it doesn't have to be a question if you if you just have something you want to say that's a great way to reach out to US nine eight ninety seven three but now Mike we have a guest yes we do we have one of my favorite food writers in Seattle which means one of my favorite food writers period Bethany Jean comment from The Seattle Times a Bethany you did the story I think that we were all waiting for in terms of at least how we're going to continue eating during the during everything being shut down it's a really great compendium of where to go what's to what's to buy when you get there and the fact that all these restaurants have had to make a very rapid pivot to something that many of them were not doing regularly which is take out dining it's true and thanks for having me in these troubled times I think it's really important to talk about what we can all do to support Seattle's restaurant industry because who are really suffering out there there is there are industry experts are predicting that seventy five percent of our independently owned restaurants will never open again and we have tons of laid off workers trying to get an appointment that is and when it comes is not going to be adequate the new aid package that might be happening they're talking about twelve hundred dollars to most adult Americans and we all live in Seattle and we know how far that won't go right so take out and delivery is something that a lot of places have turned to it really only employs a fraction of the industry's workers but you know that's something and those of us who have the privilege of working from home with our cats or the means otherwise you can go out and support them by getting take out is actually best if they're using an app based delivery service because after each delivery services charge a substantial fee to the restaurant and that takes more money out of their pockets at this very very hard time right right so so what you're saying then is if you have if you have the option and can easily do that maybe go out to when you're doing if you're doing that one day running errands and pick up your delivery food curbside because you can save the restaurant a bit of money in that puts more right more money in the owners in in the hopefully in the staffs pockets as well correct exactly and it's really weird out there getting take out one of the places I've visited in sh cafe Juanita over in Kirkland yes I've entered into the epicenter of the chef there Holly Smith is taking extreme precautions health wise she said that they're basically running it like a hospital they know that they're feeding elderly people and when you go there it's a beautiful mid century house the dining experience there is very luxurious and amazing but you just pull up in your car and you call in and you pop the trunk and someone runs out and throws a bunch of really nice food and how well and she's at Holly's in the James beard award winner right indeed I mean she asked the crowd I'm does some really delicious take out that I never thought I would be eating so what is there anything else that you think that people should be doing to help out with the service industry I mean I know personally being on the ownership and of it as well as a reporter it is it's very very tough on and I got it on on the service industry in particular and I agree with that assessment I mean a lot of people who think that they are going to get their jobs back or not especially in these places with you know let's just use and I'm not saying anything about specific with any specific knowledge let's use Tom Douglas as an example there's eight hundred employees there I don't see how they re hire eight hundred people when this comes back to much less to small places that have twelve employees are thirty employees or something like that yeah it's been it's been an ounce and it's really scary and it's really sad the people that I think that the Seattle restaurant industry a big part of it is a really lovely community of really great people and they love what they do they don't make a ton of money out of it but they love making nice food and whether that's mom and pop and ID like secretion both wanted to see the sushi place or about or fancy cafe Juanita these are people who just want to make us happy and and they are really up a creek and you know I think there's a real opportunity here to increase our human empathy and our understanding of how the industry works and how it doesn't work for a lot of people these people don't have a safety net and you know they're the ones who serve us they are the ones across the bar right my parents don't want to washing the dishes and the fact that they don't have a safety net and that this is bringing it to the forefront all right I mean I don't want to call it a silver lining but you know if we come out of this with an understanding that those of us who patronize our restaurants a drink at a bar and for me on a restaurant is a fast privilege and we should always tip huge specially right now he and you know if we come out of this with more income equality in our city and nationwide and if we come out of it with some universal health care to people than that I mean again it's hard to say silver lining because this is so serious but I think that would be really good yeah that's the need is so this is this take out of it for a lot of these places that better doing it it's a it's a fairly unsustainable business model over the long haul so these places I'm assuming do need extra money restaurants are generally that the profit margins are pretty thin normally is there are there any funds or is there anywhere that people can donate if they if they want to you know keep keep the industry going there are lots of berries from popping up for our workers and and you know people are saying you can buy gift certificates to restaurants or gift cards and that that's the way that you can get some money in our pockets now sh some of that may end up being donations if they go under realistically you know I mean we can all we can all eat takeout and delivery we can find the sites that are going specifically to independently owned restaurants and their workers The Tonight donation sites but this is really bigger than that and again twelve hundred dollars a month from the federal government is not going to cut it and and we need to step up at a local state and federal level if you can email your Congress people because she's really helpful this is an industry worth having the most impact here and arts which everything's canceled and then ironically a lot of people in the arch support making their art by working around services that's precisely true exactly we're talking to Betty Jean command food writer for The Seattle Times a Bethany are you hearing from any of the restaurateurs the the owners of the restaurant to frequently are not owners of their actual space are they talking to you at all about are are they finding and I know that we can't make some sort of you know broad judgment about this but are they risk reporting that there's any sympathy from landlords about extraordinary because the one of the big expenses in or in any business is obviously plays but in Seattle it's also your square footage price I mean these places are paying a lot of money to have a storefront in the city are you hearing anything about any what are the landlords coming to terms with folks are they giving them a bit of relief so maybe they can hang on a month or two longer before hopefully things maybe turn around a bit I haven't heard that I wish that I would just yeah the the the leases in Seattle for restaurants even before this all happened we have had a really big restaurant room and she had a list more of them on your restaurant opening per day but at the beginning of this year that sort of started to turn around in a way and we're seeing fewer openings and really prominent James beard award winning chef like Matt Dillon decided to pull out because if you have to renew your lease expire architects and it doesn't really pencil out for a lot of people anymore independent owners and he says that consumers yep yep and it's gone and that was one of Seattle's great restaurants so if you can add this into the equation act that it's it's really crazy it would be great if landmarks which forgive some rent here I don't see that happening that's not really how capitalism works but capitalism is kind of breaking down right now I don't know if you guys heard but the cheesecake factory S. like stopping paying rent which is totally nuts but these are what is possible you know the industry better than that of it better than I do but is it possible that the universal nature of this in some ways provides may be an incentive for landlords to the extent that you're not it's not like you're going to fill that space with anyone else at this point yeah I mean I am my mind is boggled by all of that the hell knows what's gonna happen is gonna get real weird I mean it already is everybody is bound to fully aware so you have a list of places your story will provide all put on social media page link to your story but if you had to throw out there I know that you've got a lot of friends I'm not looking for you to pick favorites actually I'm looking for you to pick favorites let me completely reversed that but if you had to throw out a place or a couple of places that you would suggest people give a try to what would you suggest but there are still many great places doing takeout or delivery right now and they're all over the city and people probably want to do something in their own neighborhood and support their favorites and it's likely that your favorite is doing take out and delivery so go with your favorite instead of mine I wrote about five of them but to sort of catch twenty two if that is those five are probably really overwhelmed today right right so they don't need it as well as others do that that's a fair point yeah so choose your own adventure that's to me what are you this is a question I've I've been asking our guests what are you doing for your mental health what are you doing to take care of yourself arm I am taking a lot of locks and petting my cat until she's practically bald and I the students to take out food that I've been needing it it's really meaningful to me because I feel like it means so much to the people who are making it that we're supporting them and I feel like the taste of favorite restaurant dish is really comforting even when it's at home and it's very very messed up times and likewise I think supporting your local wine shop or distillery or brewery and something that can be really helpful for everyone right now not a lot of those places are doing curbside pickup or delivery and you know have a drink people how does that how does that work exactly the the curbside experience I've never I I haven't done it do you just pull up in and do you go in or is there an employee out on on the sidewalk waiting to talk to you.

"Hello and welcome to wind episode Nineteen Gene. Thank you for joining us. I'm Rhonda and I'm Heather every episode. We ask US Ikoyi question and pair it with a bottle of wine because wine is awesome. Alright friends let's uncork regard brains so I was wondering this week. Why is everyone staring at me? This is the question of of the week leakier. Does that keep you up at night. Sometimes sometimes it does not as much as it did when I was in high school and I had to give you know oral presentations in front of the class and I was incredibly uncomfortable that I had a little more but when you say things like oral people do Stereo especially in high school eight so the question is why. Is everyone staring at me. The wine that I'm pairing with this question this week. I think pretty perfect. It is a rose. Aa Ed. I'm going to start with that already. Fan Rosa otherwise known as a blush right and the title or the name of this line is and why am I Mr Pink. So there's a story behind why it's called that but I'm GonNa tell you the story of why I think it's perfect for this question when you think about feeling like everyone is staring at you feeling embarrassed feeling like you're in the spotlight. I don't know about you you but I get read. I blush I break out in probably more than just a blush but I get pretty red splotch e. So I thought what's better hurt to go with this topic of being embarrassed in social situations having anxiety in social situations than a blush wine and I found a blush rush wine which I've actually had before and I hadn't thought of it so I saw it in the store again but it's called Mr Pink so the wind is blushing. It's blush color. It's perfect and the due to its named after his blushes. Yes so this wine it is as I said it's a it's called Mr Pink but the bottle says in. Why am I Mr Pink so it is a two thousand eighteen rose Zeh? It's out of Columbia Valley Washington. It is made with sand jovita grapes tips and so this one is fun because it is part of this underground wind project which is a collaboration between two really. Big Washington engine winemakers Mark mcneilly from Mark Ryan winery. Which I guess is a pretty big deal if you know anything about wine and I didn't? I've never heard of it but I'm sure there's lots of things but we don't have it and this other guy trae Bush shoes from slight of hand sellers So two pretty big Washington wine names James in two thousand nine released their first collaboration wine which was called idle hands. They only produce one hundred cases of it sold out became like a cult favorite. I guess and so. Then they've since then done a couple of other collaborations so this Mr Pink Collaboration of theirs so so they started. I guess talking about making it They said that this project started over a glass of wine in a conversation about the movie reservoir dogs which is equipped to Tino. She no film my fiance's a huge Tarintino fan so he was very excited when he found this bottle of wine and showed it to me. Mr Pink was my favorite character. So so if you don't know anything about the movie so the quote from the make the winemaker said. I think we're probably drinking sharply and talking about Steve Buscemi's character. Victor and we decided Mr Pink would be the greatest name for a Rosa some history pink in the movie Played by Steve Buscemi. So if you're not seeing the movie I'm not GonNa give you the whole breakdown down but basically you know it's very violent movie it's Tarantino but these characters all have different color names because they have codenames so Mr Pink is one of the characters and he's actually the only character to survive at the end of the movie so there you go this particular wine they. He said you know they were talking. They were drinking wine and they were talking about the movie and then they thought Mr Pink would be the great a great name for Arosa so they They said they wanted to make make something. That was fun. But Not Cambier cheesy something that would look equally at home on a massive display at mit market or at the table at Cafe Juanita. So I don't you know what that means but okay shortly after that conversation. The pair sat down With their go to label designer and he sketched something on a cocktail napkin and they instantly decided that that was what they were going to do. So I will show you the label and we'll post it on the website too but it's just a very simple it's a white label. It has sort of just literally. And why am I in gray and then Mr Pink and pink so I guess in two thousand fifteen. They released east thousand cases of it. It was gone in five weeks and so then in two thousand seventeen. They ramped up on that. So now they're making I. I guess they said eighty ton ferments so fermenting eighty tonnes of wine. It became very popular. So that is the story of the wine the creation of this collaboration. I don't know if you can answer the question. But when when to winemakers collaborate on a bottle of wine how how does each of them contribute something from their separate vineyard or I don't really know specifically on this one they it says that they So it's it's a senior of AC made with fruit from ancient lakes and while Lewke slope. So I don't know if they have different vineyards and they kind of combine their own or if it's more just collaboration and that like they source the grapes. They want for it and collaborate in the way they want it to taste and look and all interesting so they said the making of if Mr Pink involves skin contact during pressing only and I'll talk a little bit more about what that means with Rosa. So they said they were looking for a pink that POPs but doesn't doesn't look too dark so they said they did this skin contact pressing own lane then followed it with a series of tastings and blending 's that was a group exercise between them. They came up with their joint style and I guess too. That's how the collaboration kind of works So we'll talk a little bit about just real quick. I said this is Sandra Visa. It's Arosa and it's from Washington so I'm GonNa give you a little bit of information about that Sanjay. AC without going in too much detail. I WanNa talk more about it as a Rosa. Just about it as a group in general. Because usually you see Sandra. AC is a as a red wine. Apparently Sandra is Italy's top grape variety priority. But it's one of the most underappreciated Rosie Grapes and Italy Sanjay says usually labeled as Rosado which is the Italian the N.. Word for pink. So if you see a Rosado wine it's probably San Giovanni grapes that's interesting 'cause I usually skip over Rosetto thinking it's too close to Mus Scotto auto and so I think it's GonNa be a swimming right now and this is and I think we've talked about this in another episode where I did a Rosa. But that's a common misconception conception about rose as in general is I think people are wising up to that. Now AS Roma's as have been popular last couple years but that Rosa that because it's pink it's going to be sweet like the old white Zinfandel or whatever but it's not it's made it can be just like a white wine or red. Wine can be sweet but just because it's pink doesn't mean it's sweet Just because it's darker pink doesn't mean it's sweeter it actually means. The skin of the grape skate stays in contact with the juice longer because the color alert comes from the skin of the grape which actually makes it sort of a deeper richer Roseanne Roseanne. So if there's one public service that we're offering here is rose. He is not ways in Rosa's not my don't avoid it just because it's being don't avoid a dark. Pink rose eight just because you think that's going to be sweet. That's not the case so so Sanjay C. J. Tim staff flavors of wild strawberry bursts of red fruits Some subtle like spices like all spice vice cloven cumin. Apparently and as I said it's the most planted wine grape in Italy but in Washington it just kind of has a very small niche. The I I guess there are four main grapes that are really popular for Rosa and Sanjay visa is one of those. But it's kind of on the bottom of the list and it tends to have a sand g-o-v AC arosa tends to be rosy that is more like that salmon light salmon color and not so much peak so it is really light. You know. I don't know if you can kind of see it but it has that sort of salmon. Ten it's nice. I like it and part of that. Is that the winemaker. said they really wanted a pink here that popped but didn't be too dark so they said they only let the skin have contact with the juice during pressing only so I talk about that a little bit with throws So there are four main ways of making a rosy wine The most popular by far is something called limited skin maceration and essentially really. What that means is that they mash up the grapes? They leave the skin on contact with for a while depending on how dark they want it to be and then they Strain off the juice. The juice then without the skin continue to from it the second most popular way is direct pressing and it sounds like. That's what they did with this wine so it's very similar. But essentially all. It is is an indirect pressing they allow the grape juice to have contact with the skin. Only while it's being pressed and then it doesn't soak with it at all. The grapes are pressed right away. Remove the skin and so there's just a hint of that pigment but they don't get really dark so it tends to produce the lightest colors wrote say and apparently rose as that use direct pressing tend to be more citrusy with hints of strawberries but of course the great variety is GonNa very the flavor. There you go. That is apparently made and I said it so is it. PRODUCED IN WASHINGTON San Giovanni say very popular in Italy really not so much as a Rosa coming out of Washington lead kind. has this little niche there but Washington is actually the second largest US producer of wines just behind California and it is split into two distinct regions by this mountain range. And the most probably the Ryan's they do they're of course Merlot Chardonnay which are kind of the most popular in America. In general but Sanjay Jovesa Roseanne is kind of gaining this little niche there. So that is it okay now. This blushing wine. So as I said it you know is is light. Sammy it does so it. Supposedly what I read on the Internet is the hit. This one is mostly traced like crisp watermelon. Fresh pick strawberries and a little bit of grapefruit. And it's supposed to be break in refreshing making your mouth water just a bit so all right only smells Tell us if it lives up to the hype. It's smells strawberry and watermelon. I can definitely small watermelon. It is tasty makes me wish it was still summer and I could be sitting on the porch drinking this yet. It's definitely getting to the time of year where I probably will not be drinking refrigerator winds anymore and I didn't. I wasn't planning on doing a Rosa today. I went to the wine store and was thinking. I definitely get a red because it's chilly out..

"Restaurants in the Seattle times about are. They getting have has the noise level peaked in Seattle. And I can tell you over the years of my experience of this. Of course, I've had the dollar for thirty years now, and the Dahlia has been pretty consistent over the years as far as noise level goes in the times even mentioned as being one of Seattle's quiet test restaurants. But in my years of dining out and about all over the world. It's mostly New York that drove the noisy restaurant or LA. I would say and it became so popular, and it still is somewhat regular what do you think about quiet dining vertu, noisy dining compared to so noisy. You can't hear yourself. Think. You're I have definitely had dining experiences where I'm leaving. And I'm a little bit horse because I've had to kind of shout all night to my dinner companions and that can be a bit much. I mean, there's there's a fine line between the hustle and bustle and kind of the excitement of going out, which I think is what you're referring to. You'd think of like LA and New York restaurants is that seen that that sometimes people are going out to dinner for. But like this article by Joe Lightner says in the Seattle times more often, I'm getting questions about where can I go to have a good conversation and dinner and not shout. And, you know, people have hearing problems, frankly, where it's difficult to listen to one particular voice in a sea of many voices in dishes and echo echo effect in the round. I don't want to take this wrong. Wet what's? But do you think part of this is just that you're getting older? I definitely think I'm getting older. I mean, there's no doubt about that. I can't fight the progress of time when we started working together. I was just so young young pup in my early twenties. But Sarah, Sarah's are even from you a different generation different Jenner and saying the current young pup in and what do you think about I? I definitely think that there have been occasions where I walk into a restaurant with friends, and it is pretty loud, and it is noticeable like sometimes if you have to like yell or lean and really close to a friend to be able to hear them at a restaurant. It seems like it's pretty loud in their deputy left to a bar scene. Do you think or is it? Okay. That restaurants that are kind of bar heavy or bar Centric, even though they serve food can be loud. Or do you have do you have a thought on? Yeah. It doesn't bother me. Too much. I've found that most of the non bar Centric restaurants. I find still aren't quite as loud to me like they're still at an all right level. It's when you get to those more bar central wants at their louder, and it is kind of expected to me. So maybe I'm just of the generation where I'm like, oh, you know. Well, let's just what a restaurant, I guess, but I would say like even with the restaurants. They mentioned dally allowed now can list, I think of cafe Juanita be in the same way too. I think part of what lens they're kind of feeling like it's a fancy special night out is it's a little bit. Quieter? You know, I think that there's a whole ambience thing going on in this article dozen nice job of pointing out why some restaurants are bit quieter, and it has to do with the court has to do with the carpeting and has to do with the linens on the table. All those things really contribute to a different dining experience altogether. Quite literally it has to do with the architecture of. Yeah. Right. So if you look Dalia, I mean, we are in here. We're above Lola, right? Very popular restaurant. He can get so noisy down there. And it's but it's still an old building dollars an old building right across the street. And if you look at the difference in the noise level, it is twice as loud three times. As riot Lola, and we are just surrounded by these heart skips, right? These windows and hardwood floor and launch. Very narrow. So Dahlie on the other hand has these Bank cats, and it's got a wood ceilings with soak up a lot of noise. It's got carpet on the floor. It has. Upholster chairs, you know, things like that people don't realize how much of that soaks up. But all these new buildings were. These restaurants are going in is really kind of where some of the issues are because restaurant tours are not taking into account. They'll say, well, if it's an issue, I'll take care of it after we open, then all of a sudden, you got these piecemeal solutions put together panels hanging from the ceiling. Just weird weird efforts to calm down the noise. That's right. But there was a time. And I would say it's over the last ten or fifteen years, and I feel like restaurant tours felt you couldn't make a restaurant too loud. Yeah. And I do think that there's some age issue there as people age out of that noise level they want a little quieter. Maybe they don't like you said, maybe they don't hear as well. But I just think it's a it's somewhat of an age gap issue. All right. Let's talk about what we teased in the last segment a little bit, which is textures crispy gun soggy. I really loved this article. Did you did you enjoy this town bona petite is that what John apetite, and she describes the fact that her favorite food texture is things that have been Crispin up kind of like a crispy chicken parm, which is then lathered into Mehta sauce and cheese. So it goes soggy. Right. I don't know, you don't know. Parme? Yeah. Like that thing. But is that something I crave that she she literally craze it now when I haven't the times that I think is just a little bit weird is like say, would you ten poorer prawns in a bowl of ood on that you see all Japanese restaurants bra right over top, the fried, shrimp, Sasaki little mess, and no it's not my favorite. I like the chicken parm thicker viscosity of the tomato sauce rather than the say, you love chicken fried snake certain things that kind of maintain it's crispy texture. But I did think about you because another one they pointed out, which I know you hate is Putin, and gene has that other quality of something very crispy that is much beloved because it's been doused in kind of a wetter style gravy, generally speaking, and it goes a little sock down. I'm not sure I disliked Putin for that so much. I just find it. Gross. Oh, okay. Chris. It's just a it's like putting your face big pile of fat. Right. All right. And I don't know about that. I love gravy. And I love it on dressing. And I'd like to do I want it on my I I know much in the minority on this. Okay. I like nachos. And do you like Chile kilos? That's another thing. That's a little different right? Ask more of a baked situation where got the salsa and the sauce over top. I I will say though, I was thinking about this actually before I read this article. I was having a conversation about our favorite dishes in town and one of mine is from sushi combo, and it is the deep fried Japanese a plant, and they do in nice cross hatch on and then they pour that really hot dashi over in. And that to me is such a beautiful texture. It's not quite like a deep fried battered temperate, right? It's more that the frying kind of mixed this eggplant extra extra silky. It's super lashes in that have greasy fried eggplant that. Yeah. Exotic plants like a sponge. If I want to go up to poppy up on Capitol Hill and get those get those eggplant fries at they make with a little bit of Honey drizzle Jerusalem, then they put a little flake sea salt on top of really good. That's probably my favorite fried eggplant dish like you go to some of these places like panda express. Or some of the local chains. I can't remember their names right off the top. They do that where they deep fry. The eggplant sticky sauce. Oh my God. That is so gross. I agree. But I do when I get started eating them. It's hard to stop. Yeah..

All those things really contribute to a different dining experience altogether. Quite literally it has to do with the architecture of right? So if you look Dalia, I mean, we are in. Here. We're above Lola, right? Very popular restaurant. He came get so noisy down there. And it's but it's still an old building dollars an old building right across the street. And if you look at the difference in the noise level, it is twice as loud three times as at Lola, and we are just surrounded by these hard skates. Right. These windows and hardwood floor and launch. Ero? And so on the other hand has these Bank cats, and it's got a wood ceilings with soak up a lot of noise. It's got carpet on the floor. It has. Upholster chairs, you know, things like that that people don't realize how much of that soaks up way. But all these new buildings were these restaurants are going in. It's really kind of where some of the issues are because restaurant tours are not taking into account. They'll they'll say, well, if it's an issue, I'll take care of it after we open, then all of a sudden, you've got these piecemeal solutions put together panels hanging from the ceiling just weird. We're efforts to calm down the noise. That's right. But there was a time. And I would say it's over the last ten or fifteen years that I feel like restaurant tours felt you couldn't make a restaurant too loud. Yeah. And I do think that there's some age issue there as people age out of that noise level they want a little quieter. Maybe they don't like you said, maybe they don't hear as well. But I just think it's a it's somewhat of an age gap issue. All right. Let's talk about what we teased in the last segment a little bit, which is textures crispy gun soggy. I really loved this article. Did you did you enjoy this? So this is out of bona potatoes got apetite, and she describes the fact that her favorite food texture is things that have been Crispin up kind of like crispy chicken parm, which is then lathered into Mehta sauce and cheese. So it goes soggy. Right. I don't know. You know, this is what we Parme. Yeah. Like that thing. But is that something I crave. That's to me. She literally craze it now when I haven't I the times that I think is just a little bit weird is like say what you temporary. Prawns in a bowl of ood on that you see it all Japanese restaurants right now. Right over top two fried, shrimp, Sasaki little mess, and no it's not my favorite. I like the chicken parm thicker viscosity of the tomato sauce rather than the say, you love chicken fried steak certain things that kind of maintain it's crispy texture. But I did think about you because another one they pointed out, which I know you hate is Putin and Beijing has that other quality of something very crispy that is much beloved because it's been doused in kind of a wetter style gravy, generally speaking, and it goes a little saw doubt. I'm not sure I dislike Putin for that so much. I just find it. Gross. Oh, okay. Critic off roading this just it's like putting your face big pile of fat. Right. All right. And I don't know about that. I love gravy. And I love it on dressing. And I like to do I want it on my I I know much in the minority on this day. I like nachos. And do you like Chile kilos? That's another thing started. That's a little different right? It's more of a baked situation where the sauce and the sauce over top. I I will say though, I was thinking about this actually before I read this article. I was having a conversation about our favorite dishes in town, and one of mine is from Suka sheen bell, and it is the deep fried Japanese eggplant, they do a nice cross hatch on and then they pour that really hot dossier over it. And that to me is such a beautiful texture. It's not quite like a deep fried battered temperate, right? It's more that the frying head of mixed. This eggplant extra extra. Silky. And it's super luscious in that for fun. Have greasy fried eggplant that. Yeah. Zedek plants like a sponge, solid. I want to go up to poppy up on Capitol Hill and get those eggplant fries they make with a little bit of Honey drizzle or drizzle. And then they put a little flake sea salt on top of really good. That's probably my favorite fried eggplant dish like you go to some of these places like panda express. Or some of the local chains. I can't remember their names right off the top. They do that with a deep fried eggplant sticky soft both my God that is so gross. I agree. But I do when I started eating them. It's hard to stop. Yeah. Grossman girth progress. But here you are talking about right? All right. So we didn't get to whether or not the milk. We're going to ditch milk as a society and just go to oatmeal. But the dairy farmers apparently are feeling the squeeze people changing their milk habits. Katie. Oh, you're on the go this.
