"This is fresh air. Our film critic Justin Chang recently caught up with the new movie Mafi, which tells the story of a white South African teenager hiding his sexuality as a young soldier under apartheid in the early 19 eighties. You can stream it now on many major platforms. Here's Justin's review the brutal and mesmerizing new film Muffy takes place in South Africa in 1981 when white teenage boys are conscripted to fight in the country's border wars. Story follows a group of these young men as they endure the rigors of basic training and are sent to fight communist forces from neighboring Angola. The conflict that most concerns The movie, adapted from Andre Carl Vandermeer Vase autobiographical novel is the one raging inside. It's 16 year old protagonist, Nicholas He's coming to grips with his homosexuality in an environment that couldn't be more hostile to it. Nicholas, played by a quietly magnetic newcomer named Kai Luke Brummer feels like an outsider from the start, and not just because of his forbidden desires. He was born in England, as anyone can tell from his accent and gets hazed by some of his more loudest comrades early on. That's nothing compared with the verbal and physical abuse dished out by their commanding officers who make our Lee Ermey in full metal jacket look downright cuddly. Nicholas makes connections, too. Befriends another young man, Michael, who was quick to defend him against bullies. Nicholas Forge is a much more dangerous bond in secret one rainy night when the young men are forced to dig trenches and sleep in them. Seeing Nicholas Shiver miserably in the cold.

MLB All-Star Game yanked from Atlanta over voting law
"This is all things considered. I'm Audie Cornish and I'm Elsa Chang in Los Angeles. Totally unnecessary. That is what a top lieutenant in the Minneapolis Police Department said today about the way that former police officer Derrick Show Vin Pressed his knee into the neck of George Floyd, he testified on the fifth day of Sheldon's murder trial. NPR's Adrian Florido has been covering the proceedings and joins us again from Minneapolis. Hey, Adrian. Hi, Elsa. All right. So today wrapped up the trial's first week, which, as you know, I've been talking about has been packed with so much emotional testimony, like from bystanders who watched Floyd died to first responders who couldn't revive him. But today the trial seemed to shift a little right. Tell us a little bit about that. Yeah. Today, the prosecution worked to build its case that Derrick show Vin used excessive force on George Floyd. And to do that they called Lieutenant Richard Zimmerman to the stand. He is the longest serving police officer in the Minneapolis PD. He's been on the force since 1985. He's the head of the homicide division. And importantly, after George Floyd's death, he was one of the department employees who publicly condemned what show Vin did. Prosecutor Matthew Frank spent time today asking him about the dangers of restraining a suspect by laying them face down. Have you ever in all the years you've been working for the Minneapolis Police department. On been trained. To kneel on the neck of someone who is handcuffed behind their back in a prone position. No, I haven't. Is that if that were done with that be considered force absolutely. What level of force might that be? That would be the top tier the deadly force. Why? Because of The fact that if you need is on a person's neck That can kill him. Not not mincing words. They're obviously right. Well, what exactly did Lieutenant Zimmerman's say about the way show Vin handle George Floyd. So here is the same prosecutor asking Zimmerman a question about what he saw in the body cam footage of George Boyd's arrest. What is your? You know, your View of that use of force during that time period. Totally unnecessary. What do you mean? Well, first of all. Pulling him down to the ground face down. And putting your knee on the neck. For that amount of time. Is just Uncalled for. I saw no reason why The officers felt they were in danger if that's what they felt. And he said, the danger is what show then I would've had to field to justify keeping his his knee on Floyd's neck for that, Monk. E mean it's not every day that you hear. A police officer, especially a senior police officer criticized Another officer, even a former one, right, right? Yeah. But on cross examination, eyes show, Vin's attorney, Eric Nelson, worked to poke holes in his testimony, his main focus being the latitude that police officers are allowed during under the police department's use of force policy when they're responding to incidents, So here's Nelson asking that the same witness a question. You would agree, however, that in the fight for your life generally speaking in a fight for your life, you is an officer are allowed to use whatever force is reasonable and necessary. Correct? Yes. And that could even involve improvisation, agreed. Yes. Minneapolis Police department policy allows a police officer to use whatever means there never are available to him to protect himself and others, right? Yes. The defense attorney there, obviously giving clues about the kind of arguments he's going to make when it's his turn to present his case that show been feared for his life that he was dealing with the dynamic situation. Struggling suspect an angry crowd. And real quick. When do we expect the defense to start calling their own witnesses? Well. The prosecution is expected to wrap up their case by the end of next week. And then it'll be the defense's turn. We expect starting the following week that is NPR's Adrian Florido in Minneapolis. Thank you, Adrian. Thank you, Elsa. Critics say that George is controversial New election law restricts voter access and disproportionately effects people of color and in protest Major League Baseball announced today It will relocate the summer's All Star game and draft out of Georgia and under pressure from voting rights advocates. Major companies like Delta and Coca Cola have issued critical statements. Now. Stetson University law professor Ciara Tourist Spellissy studies the influence of corporations and lawmaking earlier today, I spoke to her about what she found striking about this wave of corporate criticism. One of the things that's remarkable about the new statements from Delta and Coca Cola is that they have changed positions a few days ago. They put out pretty Tepid criticisms and or support for the Georgia legislation, and now that the legislation has become law, and they've been under pressure from voting rights advocates They have changed their tune on. That doesn't happen that often. Let's dig into that a little more, because obviously corporate America lobbies. Statehouses Congress for all kinds of things, right? Can you talk about how aggressive they can be in this area or how reluctant they have been in this area in the past? So corporations have two main ways that they influence policy. One is through corporate donations to particular candidates. They then spend even more money lobbying lawmakers to get the policies that they want. Now, most of the policies that a corporation wants are for its own benefit. No, this is a little bit different because voting rights advocates in Georgia put pressure on corporations not just because they were located in Georgia, but also because they had given money to Some of the politicians who created this regressive Election law in Georgia. Can you talk about a moment in recent history where we've seen corporate activism lead to significant legislative change? I think the biggest Example of this was the 2017 tax cut. And the tax cut was literally for corporations. So you had political donors putting enormous pressure on Members of Congress and the corporate tax rate was cut significantly. Another example is bathroom bills and so by bathroom bills. These are Laws at the state level that direct individuals to only use the bathroom of the gender of their birth. And one of these bathroom bills was passed in North Carolina. The end see double a pulled championship games from North North Carolina. And that got AH lot of attention and and North Carolina. Rolled back that bathroom, Phil. We've been hearing a lot, especially in the last year about corporate responsibility, so to speak. What you going to be looking for going forward to see whether this is Real or not, well, one of the things that we saw after the riots at the Capitol on January 6th. Woz corporations deciding to pull back corporate PAC money from the Republicans who objected to The electoral college votes for Joe Biden. But now there is pressure from the U. S Chamber of Commerce, which is one of the largest trade associations in America. It's also one of the largest Dark money, political spenders in America, and they're urging their members to get back in the political spending game. So one of the things that I will look at After Georgia and after the riots on January, 6th is Do any of these corporations actually changed their political spending behavior. Ciara Torres Spellissy is a professor of law at Stetson University in Gulf Port Florida. Thank you so much for your time. Thank you. There is a new attempt to bring the U. S and Iran back to the 2015 nuclear deal with one The Trump administration left in direct talks are set to begin in Vienna next Tuesday.

Living & Processing #StopAsianHate
"Hey guys welcome to first of all a real unfiltered conversation on career family relationships and culture. Ivanhoe's mingy chang. I'm an actor producer and entrepreneur. And i'm here to share inspiring stories and go through everyday life with you Right off the top. I don't know how inspiring this week's episode is going to be but it definitely is with the intention to walk through life with you because it has been a moment a really tough moment for a lot of folks at least in my universe and for myself to go through and with the full mission of what first of all was from. The very beginnings from his birth was to be space for asian american voices for female voices. And there's a lot to unpack with. What happened this past week. And what's been happening in the asian american community so to get everybody up to speed. If you're new to first of all how is first time tuning in this. Podcast has been an exploration in a place where my experience in the the friends of mine. My universe can talk a lot of different elements of who we are as people whether that's racer or sexuality or geography or whatever. We all have a really diverse background. We're all unique individuals human beings and i'm fascinated by that and i wanted the space to be a place where we can share all those things talk through some things process and things learn and This last year. There's been a huge surge in anti-asian violence This the last administration. The trump administration had been kind of setting the stage in Provoking and planting a lot of hateful hateful rhetoric a lot of hateful attitudes and discriminatory Perspectives and viewpoints. Really like empowering a lot of people that are bigoted and zena phobic and it's been really scary time But in terms of the hate crimes that have been happening. The violence That has been surging. I think we're almost like four thousand hate crimes in the last year It's been a lot for folks to deal with and with what happened in atlanta and knowing the fact that a lot of the people that tune in for first of all are a lot of asian americans asian diaspora a lot of women. Female identifying folks. i just i. My my wish was to create a space for us to to kind of grieve together and process and to learn again all the original intentions of this podcast because there is a lot to unpack here. It's not just pain but that pain is coming from a shared experience of being largely invisible being discriminated against being a being a you know attacked and mistreated and dehumanized in so many different forms. That it's something that's been cracked open in this moment.

Google, Facebook and Twitter face off with Washington, DC Again
"Facebook ceo mark zuckerberg google ceo sundar pichai and twitter ceo. Jack dorsey will appear before a house subcommittee meeting later today to discuss the role in fomented misinformation. The what are we actually expect to hear. Roger chang and this is your daily charge with us offer preview the proceedings is google reporter rich. Never welcome rich eight each before we get into today's session. You you just give us a quick review of all the times that big tech has appeared before congress and why they've been called in because it's been a number of times at this point over even the last year they've they've showed up to dc or at least virtually with increased frequency right. Yes so it seems like this is a regular occurrence now. But they've been called in for a bunch of things in the past. The big thing was antitrust. Last time they've also been called for an anti gay bias. That republicans are alleging. It been called for election interference in the two thousand sixteen election as well as twenty twenty election and they've been called for data collection in. So it's a it's a pretty regular occurrence days. Yeah it's it's old hat but for this session which is about this information on. What what are we expecting to hear. And what are some of the central themes about misinformation We're going to be hearing about this. One is is about misinformation and disinformation in particular and congress has a lot to choose from. In terms of nate. They tech here The election misinformation. For this this past election we got the lead up to the storming of the capital in how misinformation and disinformation but to extremism. And we got kobe. Nineteen misinformation about the causes in the vaccine. And you know what that means for for everybody going forward. So there's there's a lot hughes from.
Googles Nest Hub wants to track your sleep
"So tell me about this newness hub. It is sort of at least on the outside. Kinda looks the same but there is some very different stuff. Happening underneath will start. The prices ninety nine ninety nine year round that up to two hundred bucks. The first gymnast tab was hundred twenty nine when it came out. So it's coming out of the gate a little bit cheaper than the first model which is always nice to see The there's tons of stuff under there. It's a little bit different. Yeah let's let's talk about that 'cause you you mention in your review or your announcement of the product that it's got a motion sensor and sleep tractor but the no cameras. So how does that work. Yeah so this. New smart display takes advantage of google solely technology. It's a miniature radar a low energy radar that instance movement would any cameras. They call it motion. Sensors and motion sense enable. Something called sleep sensing which is the big feature of the smart display its technology we saw i in the pixel four at league right. This was a project solely was there was a name. It and i guess that went away with the pixel five. But i guess they're retake reusing the sinology inputting into the nest hub. How does the sleep tracking worth and more portfolio up. Are you comfortable letting google track your sleep patterns. So it's an interesting question. Because i think what we'll get to the comfort chang in america that how it works is you will calibrate your smart display their assuming that. You're gonna put on your nightstand when i talked to google. They said that. Twenty percent of first generation nest hubs went on nightstands so they sort of hedge their bets on that and he'll put on your nightstand bobi calibration process that you do so that it will send just one person so if you have a co sleeper if you have pets or kids who come in and out it will sense just the person who sleeping closest the display so that radar will sense things like here movement your movement if you get in and out of bed or breathing but then they're also sensors for light end four temperature just like they had the last nest display to show you nice photos with that adaptive color start using that technology to monitor things like. Oh your bedroom got a little bit warm last night. And maybe that's why you didn't sleep so well so there's sort of a whole group of sensors in all that data is going to be local. You can see it in. Google fit apt. You'll get reports suggestions on how to possibly improve your sleep now. Are you comfortable. That's gonna depend on every person right. Some people wouldn't have even put the first in nineteen in their bedroom. Even with the camera. Even without asleep. Sensing just because like microphones and data. And i totally get that For me personally. Without a camera i'm Kind of okay with it. I'm willing to try it. You know willing to see how invasive the it feels. Yeah i imagine like you said it's it's gonna be it's gonna come down to individuals just their comfort level with google the management of their data. I know google acquired fit that Closer acquisition back in january a two point five billion dollar deal. The worse concerns about what google was used or how it was going to use that data and i know this sort of said that there'd be sort of a silent about portion of for fitbit. But do you know if there's going to be between whether this new s hubble work with your fitbit the too 'cause i know sleep tracking was also a big deal for it so we don't. We don't know for sure there have been hints on. Google has been pretty tight lipped about what's going to happen. Astor this preview window of sleep sensing oversleep syncing is available as a free preview and they say until the end of the year after that day are pretty pretty strongly hinting. It's gonna be a paid subscription feature They haven't said specifically how that's gonna go. They said things like we are looking for ways to integrate in. They said things like we are looking for ways to integrate fitbit technology with our google devices. There's been some very vague talk around it so we're not sure how it's gonna go. I do expect it eventually in probably next year you will need to pay some sort of subscription for sleep sensing an that it will probably somehow be tied in with it but google did pitch this whole display to me as a way to track your sleep without any wearables so they don't seem to really wanna tied in with a wearable interesting in the idea that it would actually charge. It's very anti google. Google is all about giving you free services right but Perhaps because there may be more cognizant of the data and you are likely trying to avoid using this for advertising research purposes. Maybe they're trying to figure out a different way to monetize it Some cases in some ways. That actually kinda i find that a little bit a take that as a bit of a relief because if they're charging me for this probably means they're not using the data for other means or other ways to you know. Send me targeted ads. I don't know it'll be interesting to see what happens. After this free preview trade ends up or ends. Yeah they did. They did mention that there will be no none of your data will be used for personalized ads. So you won't get I won't say a brand that you will get like mattress suggestions. Based on your sleep sensing so. That's
The gold rush of digital media shaking everything up
"Broader chang and this is your daily charge. What does shed light on. This mysterious world is our crackle reporter rich. Never welcome rich anything's so let's get right into it. What the heck are nf. Teas that is a good question. And it's a complicated answer but nfc stands for non jewel token in their bisley. They work like a bar code and they're meant to authenticate pieces of digital Like a file or a or a or a video or a or a movie At what it does is basically it designates one version as the authentic version and everything else is just copy right. He gives you the examples of some high profile. Tease of some of the wilder. Ones have gone for lots of money. Sure so right now. There's this auction at the british auction. House christie's is doing ended today and the bidding last time i looked at thirteen million. And it's for a piece of art by by rs named people So that's kind of one at the crazy extreme end of it There were those one clip of lebron james of walking shot that went for like a hundred thousand dollars jack dorsey of twitter is auctioning off the first tweet And i think that one is at at more than two million right now home what. Let's let me kind of break. It down because i think this is where i'm having difficulty wrapping my head around. You mentioned the lebron james to drill clip. Which can easily be shared the tweet by elon. Musk that can be screened. Shot at or can be shared the the the christie's auction that that piece of our it's not physical. It's a digital piece of art. Which again can be copied and shared. Why would someone pay this much money for. I guess what is what is technically though authentic version of this digital asset but ultimately is still a digital asset that you can copy and share right right. So that's that's where it gets really really complicated because the people the people are work. You know that's me. That's in our story like the pictures in our story right and i didn't hate thirteen million dollars but it you know it basically comes down to perception and that's really why this is kind of a fascinating topic because at the heart of it it it. It's we're talking about ownership online and what that means And and so you. I was talking to one one. Berkeley professor for For the story. That i did and his his take was. You know. it's it's about bragging rights but it's also about more than that know like like you. You've got these these pieces of art. That are are prolific online right. Everybody seen i'm like like a meme And if one person owns that you can take credit for for owning this That people love but also you know it. it could also be kind of something deeper than that I liken it to a painting right if you it. It makes sense that you'd want to buy like an original basquiat versus printed and the reason might be because you you might feel closer to the artist if you were to own the quote unquote authentic version of the same go for for an

"Husband. We're all human. We all are fallible. We all make mistakes. and. It's tough to figure out logistics for funeral right now in this Kobe world and to do social distancing and. It's something that unfortunately way, too. Many people have had to deal with. The past four months and my heart goes out to all the families. My heart goes out to all the families that have lost someone to cancer. It's a horrible thing. My Dad lived a very full life. He. He did a lot. That's for sure and he was beloved. and. He died bile duct cancer. And he lived the longer than the. Doctor thought that he would. And I'll tell you my one regret and this is the main reason why I wanted to do this podcast. I hope that if you have a similar kind of relationship with your parents. And as difficult as it may be, and there were certainly moments in my life where I thought I. Don't know if they can never repair this. I asked that you try to think about what it was like to be. Your parents to be in their shoes not to justify their actions. But to learn that it's the responsibility of you to be able to forgive them, and to be the bigger person, and to show them that all that they sacrificed produced a child that. took all of their sort of who they. and. You became a better person the last thing they ever wanted us to come to. This country is to not be better. They sacrificed so much. My Dad's sacrificed. A God awful amount to provide, and that's the one thing he knew. and. I encourage you to do something that I. Didn't do enough of is. Tell your parents I. Love You. That's a word that was rarely used with my dad. because. He rarely sat it. Is just never happened. I mean there's two things he never said. I love you and. Smiling in a photo just never happened man very few words and. You know he knew how to have a good time when it was on the golf course with his friends, and he could be himself, but when it came to families, it was like dyslexia for him. In I don't think we have to inherit that at least I, don't. And I wish that I was able to tell my dad that I loved him more, and that I accept him for all the good and the bad, because he provided all these opportunities for his family for me, and it's my job in my responsibility to be better. Both as a person in how I live, and as I am as a father now to my own son and. I can't imagine how hard that must be for a lot of us or a lot of you particularly anyone. But this idea of showing and emoting love to your parents. In a way that from a Western perspective, it is just so counterintuitive, and if you have parents that came to this country in the sixties and Seventies. I think you should connect with them and try to talk to them. and. You know it's not just about talking about black lives matters, and maybe more than likely. They're conservative viewpoints in their desire to opole the model minority..

"And there were nothing there was like plastic flags, but it was like price club or Costco for golf. He would get the shipments of balls golf bags clubs, and they would just be stacked in boxes everywhere. And the whole idea was I'm GonNa pay very little for the core because I want the total value to get back into the pocket of the consumer, and it was in really bad location in not even like A. It was a warehouse, but a warehouse that was incredibly hard to find. And he built a golf business that way which was very spartan, and it's taken me several years to realize that I spent so much time the fucking Gulf story. It's certainly left a giant impressionist who I would operate my own restaurants. And stripped away all the bullshit, and I try to strip away all the bullshit in dining and you know one of those days when? I worked there when I wasn't playing golf I was working there. Breaking down boxes learning how to repair golf clubs working the cash register. Is the only time I ever saw my dad cry. In genuflection. This old white guy came in trying to buy Golf Clubs and my dad office, and this guy was looking at the golf clubs on the on the wall, and he was like Joe, Chang and my dad stopped in his tracks, and I'm looking at this entire interaction and I'm like Oh. My God I've never seen my dad react that way before like he's talking to his boss. You Know My dad was the boss. I've never seen him sort of pay respect to anyone. That wasn't his older sisters or brothers in an honorific Korean way. And I don't know exactly what they said. But I saw my dad just sort of. Shake his hand, the guy didn't by any golf clubs time, and he walked out, and my dad started a well up in tears and I don't know if I asked anything and my dad told me he was like that was my old boss at the restaurant and I, later found out that guy. Sold the restaurant to my dad in the Washington DC area and I don't know again the backstory behind that. But that guy changed my dad's life I giving him an opportunity, and it's something that I've never forgotten because it changes life forever. And this guy gave a Korean immigrant a chance to operate his own business. And that was something I've never forgotten, and it's one of the reasons why. I always try to treat our dishwashers I'm not perfect, but I've always tried to cheat our dishwashers with the utmost sort of kindness because I I always see that as my dad. And It's always why we if someone that doesn't speak English. Well wants to work for on the House. We always trying to find a way to make that happen, so they can learn English because that's how my dad learn English. He worked his way up in the restaurant industry teaching himself. What is effective? We still broken, English, but enough to work in a restaurant and. You know he worked long enough in restaurants to get out I. Know at the age of forty. He sold his restaurant. He had a restaurant in the National Press Club and then something else i. don't remember what. and.

"Blood. I'm talking to a fucking preacher and I've never joined a cult I've never been willing to. I've never wanted to join a cult. I've worked in kitchens though and there's something inexplicable that you try to communicate people and you don't you're not proselytizing you're not trying to preach but the difference between and Wiley and the people you and I admire and an and pretenders is that it's not lip service. I think he really really really deep down. And I'm saying this to you and I know at one affect your belief because I think it's it's true intrinsic where you and I talk on ugly delicious. We're talking about what food can do. I think that deep down most people leave. It can't do much. It's something you put in your mouth and a tastes good or doesn't and you eat it and it turns into Shit. I think that you really believe that. You can change people's minds with food that you can make a difference with food that if you put everything you have in in you into nourishing somebody else that you can say things with your food that you can't say with your mouth one hundred percent. Of course I believe that. But that's right there. You think that other people do as they don't think that's like a given. It's not it's absolutely not. I'm to listen. I can understand why people may not believe that for example. There's people that aren't moved by our or they're not my music and I always think about Cameron Crowe and almost famous when a lot of people think you know Kate Hudson's role is a little bit like T- ditsy potentially no they love music with all their life and I get that and that's exactly the different the difference with me as I can see the absurdity of of this business and the stupidity of it and simultaneous would be part of the good and the bad and you know like I can see that like a movie as bad as burnt which is in some ways. Good is for me when I saw him. Go Bradley Cooper get sabotage by Michelle? Which again should be commended? Because Michelle did the right thing again. Let a lot of people would be like. That's terrible like Fuck Michelle's he know. Michelle's the fucking here on this fucking movie. Bradley Cooper is a horrible mother fucker in this movie and should have gotten beaten the just never given another opportunity. Michelle should be an every opportunity. The World Michelle became one of the best cooks John Lewis. Kitchen and Mike didn't have his own kitchen and got sabotage. No no no no. That shouldn't have happened. And he did the right thing by getting sabotage but when Adam Jones finds out that like Oh my God that's the Michelin died and my life is ruined i. I was basically wasted. Everyone's time and I'm I am horrible person. And he falls off the wagon. You know we've talked about this before you know like after that Nishi Review felt that way. I mean like you know like grace's right around the corner like I'm talking about this like I think that if I didn't have grace in my life at that time I think something really bad could have happened in like this forty eight hours and that was unequivocally something that's take me a long time to look back at and be like it's not that important. It's not that important in. I can say that but I know that it is which is why when I watched that and I can see how stupid and how patently absurd it is to care about emission star when a chef takes their life right. Whether it's Bernard Oiseaux or the chef that took over for Freddie Zero Day and you know that I've talked to a lot of chefs about this when they've gotten a bad review. The first thing I always ask asking is are you okay. There's a chef that I know that was like he thought about jumping off a bridge and I'm just like this is the stories that need to be told but aren't told in the fact that a movie as bad as burn actually captured one moment accurately. And it's all bad except for these moments that actually should be spoken about. That's what I'm like. Fuck man you had an opportunity to really shed some light on a terrible subject. Because how could someone take something so seriously that they'd be willing to like dial? Yeah well that's the difference. I mean people like food and they love food. You can love food and not believe in it. Chang I mean listen you and I have known each other for ten years now and I'll follow you anywhere because I I see somebody in you. Who believes in what they're doing and I it doesn't see it as a vehicle to get. I don't know what the fuck I'm doing though. It doesn't matter if you don't know like I can sense when somebody doesn't believe in what they're talking about and that you know at Burns at its best is captured a couple of moments here and there when it's like this means a lot to somebody else's means a lot to my character. This means a lot to who this theoretical Personnaz. But there's no moment where I'm like. Oh you the director you the writer you the actor. Anybody believes in this thing. It's easy to believe in music. It's easy to believe in first responders firefighters paramedics doctors. It's easy to believe in military army service people and I do too. But it's harder to believe in what you can accomplish their food and Chang man like you and I have had a lot of a lot of conversations over the last decade and I there are moments where I know for a fact that you really believe what you're doing and you believe in the importance of it and I don't know like this isn't helpful to any movie directors out there who are trying to make a movie about food but No I mean I appreciate. What am I hear what you're saying but I'm always like food at its best is like at least the restaurant cooking. That can't happen ultimately. Food's not that important. It isn't other than getting your sustenance but ultimately it is what I love most about cooking. Is this in a professional kitchen? Besides the hijinks Tomfoolery. Which is why genuinely love professional kitchens? That's the total fucking buffoon. Who's the funniest person the room I love it? When some that light clicks on someone's head when that moment someone realizes like why cleaning? Why do I care about organizing? I can't even do anything like this. In my entire life of avoided organizing tire life. I've avoided cleaning. I've never cared about doing anything. Well Y- I do I care about cleaning. Well why do I care about organizing? Well why do I want to play this fish better? Why do I wanna make this just a tap it better? Why don't WanNa make the Pasta farce less loose? So it's better tomorrow because ultimately it's absurd you're gonNA eat it and you're gonNA shit it out right all of these jobs beautiful thing of existential absurdity into fucking food and it's it's very again. I think I was thinking like a Mandala by Buddhism. It's like why would you spend all this time to create the Sandcastle only to blow it away in a ceremony? It's so dumb but I think in that stupidity is wrapped in something. That's beautiful and I think it does in some ways capture the human spirit that I care about in the face of all adversity and logic and reason you're still going to move forward and try to make it right. Yeah and better yourself. And that's what I think at the very core what food can be in. A professional kitchen is bettering oneself. And you're not being motivated by a stock option. You're not being motivated by making more money. All of these things are making money now. Like all of these. Yes but I can't force you to get better. How do I create an environment where you're going to want to be better too? So that light clicks on on your own and be like wait. I can only make myself better. And that's a fucking beautiful thing and I would when that happens. That's the winning man. And when you do that that's what I was talking to the end of the movie where people are like wait. I've learned the Jetta away a little bit. It's not about me Bradley Cooper at the Anti like he's gone the dark ways and you know don't be reductive. Jeddah you know. I talk about this all his own. I think the thing that happens to the next level when you realize like oh. It's not about me it's about bettering everyone else. Yeah it's it's it's Hi Ruby out sat outside of right there. GimMe five minutes okay. I love you didn't do it. Okay you're starting to eat already. Okay all right there. I'll be right there. I'll be right there. I think that's Chang. I think that that's seen where Bradley Cooper's hotel room as a disaster and his kitchen is pristine that to me is yes real another real. You let everything fall. Apart for the sake of you're doing we'll let you go. You know what I think we should i. This is getting good now. I know this is. This is the so we talk about Chang. And it's I I mean I'm going to be honest. I'm tearing up just thinking about I. Keep on trying to achieve particular. What I'm saying the difference between the chefs I truly love and admire and everybody else. And it's that it's that moment of like you know like you in your early days at Momofuku. Orderliness keeping the absolutely highest standards at the restaurant was everything but your home life was I this. I don't know how to get his air conditioning unit into my winterson duct tape it with books. Like that's that's the difference. Okay Chang I don't know man. Well let's let's keep you know what let's continue this. I I actually think we should edit this and I think we have some actually really good..

The last time I was in Orleans and it is a real bona fide. Always your shop now. I did my actual math. I can't believe this a million oysters and I'm going to give him the benefit of the doubt. He's a shock a thousand dollars a day. I don't think that's possible. I do not think that's possible without developing severe carpal Tunnel Syndrome. And to three hundred would be a lot for one person to do day. I'm going to give him the benefit of say he's a prodigy of Oyster shucking Jones. I'm going to give them that. I'm gonNA give them that. I'm also going to give him the fact that he's going to work a thousand dollars a day and he's GonNa six days a week because he already said back in know we John. Luke was working twenty hours a day six days a week. So that makes six thousand oysters a week. Six Thousand Oysters. A week divided by million with the time of the week. So it's it's six point three hours a day to Shuck a thousand wasters with a math that I did. And it's actually accurate one hundred sixty six weeks at a thousand dollars a day at six days a week. That means three point two years at the best case near thirty seconds in order to write. That's thirty seconds like I'm giving the the reality is. It's probably five to six years. If you WANNA to do a million wasters I did you. Did you one better Chang. I think we all did the math on this. But here's the craziest part. 'cause you're right and you would know better than anybody in the world. A thousand oysters. A day is fucking banana man the last day so when we catch we catch Adam Jones. He's going to his job. He's got his little booklet where he keeps track of. All the he's done and this his last day of penance. He's GonNa hit one million today. I paused it. I looked at the screen. And I did the subtraction on that last day. He had three thousand three hundred four. And he's like maybe it's edited wrong but it looks like he's done before ten. Am walks out thirty three hundred oysters. You just don't that's just not possible. I just don't understand why that would happen. And that made me mad right off. The Bat was like this is not believable. And that's what saying. They're trying to make it believable. But it's not fucking believable. Just isn't I'm sorry there's no fucking way and I'm a really good fucking waste to Shekar. There's no way three thousand three hundred. A day is way too many big. That is free the shame of it for me. Is those oysters and him. Eating that oyster was probably the single. There's one other scene that we'll get to when we talk about the food but that was one a or one B of the most compelling moments that the whole thing are absolutely early and then there's this other element there where like he's supposed to be paying his dues right like he fucked it up. He's trying to pay his penance. And become a better man. Bhai shucking oysters. But then he he. Shucks number one million he slurps it down and then he walks out of his job no explanation. You know who did not rehabilitated. Huge denied your fucking role. Dude walk out of your job without bird one electric. What a prick I mean like. That's what I kept on saying throughout the movies. Like what fucking prick Irene. I couldn't believe it and like we go into the next that I have notes on. He's like she get the London and he just. How does he find this kid that he knows? That's making these lamb sandwiches. And then he tells them you're GonNa pay me to teach you how to cook and I'm GonNa live at your house like what a fucking asshole. What an what an arrogant French right like would you ever do that? Just go to some random person. Like I'm living with you now. Well the so he has during his crew assembly seen. He's going all over the place to find his his like bad ass cokes. Each has a different specialty. And I actually think the food porn in this part is pretty good. They're going through kind of the street food of London. It looks. It looks good on screen. I I think the food porn looks good. And of course he's like in these kind of like quote unquote ethnic restaurants little holes in the wall and he picks out the pace mother fucker to join his career. I can Scottish kid. Or something comes out and he. He gives them the speech. That's like Oh you like me. Would you work for free? Would you pay me to work for you just like this is this is gross? What is going on right now Yeah I it's it's pretty bad man and the whole thing is just like it's too clever by half. Every line of dialogue is too clever by Bennie. Crashes at the kids place and his girlfriend's Lily James Who's now like super famous who Lily James's still collins daughter. Oh my goodness. I didn't know that yeah. I think I'm right. I'm right am I right. She is slow Internet here. We'll just say it's true. Don't worry about it. Other religious. Edit this wikipedia piece look my right no It's fine it's fine. Everything's not sure everybody drink clorox shine flashlights in your mouth so staying at his place and they go in the Michelin fucking one star. You're amazing to start your like Obi-wan-kenobi Three-star Yoda like no that's sort of. I guess I could have. You had a really reduce it and be reductive. But here's my really like nitpicking of food on that scene. He makes them food number. One Who makes S. cargo? What kind of fucking Asshole S. cargo at someone's House that you're crashing at two? This is the line. He says he lives her. A recorder toast and says a picked up all the summer vegetables. Some vegetable peas. I'm pretty sure having lived in London before their spring coincides with the East Coast of America. Spring and peace is a May may ish type thing like no. He was wrong so Just like these are the things they're going to try to make it super accurate. Make you fucking accurate. And that's what again made me really upset. So I think at this point he has. We met Bradley Cooper. He's washed up. He's shuckers million oysters. He is the fast shocker. By a factor of one hundred X. He flies to London to start a restaurant and he we should mention he. He partners up. He partnered up with his old nature. D' was in love with homes in love with him who is in love with him. Played by the actor. Daniel Bruhl who is Zemo from the Captain America? Who Know about that. Here's my question for you guys. Here's my question for you guys. What country is this fucking character from? What is this accent? What accents supposed to be friendly supposed to be French? No He's not fucking freshly doesn't speak French at one point. Says I don't like my French is rusty. I don't speak French. Wow it sounds to me like a bad like English dialects like you know something from the countryside kind of thing. I think we should have got like a linguistic expert on here because this mother fuckers accent changes on every acid house. Let's let's just go back a little bit. If if you and me ever go split a Walker at Burger King Yeah and if I ever give you a speech that basically says like you don't know what cooking is this is peasant food you know Blah Blah Blah. Like you know the French food that you make is actually peasant food. And all this shit and start pontificating I want you to kick me in the balls with the hammer through enough but you got it. I promise I will a speech. I swear to God I would. If someone even said that to me I would get so violent. I think I know what I'd say. This is stick my head in the lion's den here. I'M GONNA stick my head in the lion's den here. There was a moment. Listen I I was three sheets to the wind when I watched this movie the first time. I'm half a bottle of GIN as we're talking about this right now put Chang. There're a couple moments in here. The lines are forced. They come out of context. But I was like they've Chang has said some me before. Let me let me ask you this. Why did Tony? The maitre d' have to be gay and in love with this. That helps the story anyhow. Dance the fucking.

I also think that the soundtrack of Hugo saying whatever he's saying in the background is really really helpful to yeah but like I really want. I really want on like I've been thinking I gotta get so much better at that. Like like a good neighbor state farm. Is there like I'm trying to work on his baritone? I'm basically auditioning to be the voice for the commercials like a good neighbor state farm. Is there get a quote or find an agent at State Farm Dot Com see? I'm getting there I'm getting getting there. We're we're we're GONNA do a mail bag. We've we have neglected the Ask Dave Account Long enough. It's time for us to sort of dig in and It's a hilarious. Mix Chang of like home cooking questions and please help me save my business questions. It really shows how all over the place we are with this show But yeah that's what we've got today a ton of questions for you to answer. Let's do this. Let the healing begin all right so our first question is an email from Derek. Be WHO says My wife has issued a moratorium on new cookbooks and equipment purchases during the Cova crisis so there goes my dreams of owning. Adobe how do I make that one pot fish or meat over rice dish Using a Dutch oven well? Dutch oven is great. Thing with a Dutch oven is it remains really. Well you WANNA make sure. It's not too big of a Dutch oven so if it's too big it's going to be hard to cook rice and I'm going to probably say fourteen inches maximum. But if you have one of those big oval things it may not work as well. I would just argue. Not Argue suggests that you want the smallest size Dutch oven because they cook rice incredibly. Well even argue that cast iron makes the best rice even better than the knobby in no pot so that would be my first thing. So I'm arguing. I'm not arguing. I don't know why I'm saying argument arguing so much today. People.

"So Do you think this movie's aged well though this movie in any way I do? It's funny that you brought up in the very beginning. The fact that this movie came to mind for you was the whole like restaurant franchise wars and Taco Bell. Being the only remaining restaurant in there is like a sort of interesting distort. Pick reality to that in what we're facing right now and so in that sense like yeah. I guess it's aged and like there's something to be said for it. I don't know I don't think so. I mean when I was a kid movie really defined what I thought satire was and shape that for me in a pretty intense way like I realize like and I thought it was so cool freshman year of high school I read brave new world and I was like Oh my God. That's what demolition man's about and like that was the first time something I'd read had ever shown up in a A movie and it was really meaningful. I I don't know Chang. I don't know if this is aged with the same relevance for me then the next question then is would you watch it again on cable. Well so I I. You are flipping through the channels. I saw it on cable. Would you watch it hell? Yeah I rented this thing on whatever service Google play maybe and I got. I think I got twenty six hours left on my rental. I'm going to watch this motherfucker or at least one more time album percent owner sent over to watch this again. I've watched this movie probably Twenty Five Times in my lifetime. Got Twenty Five. At least I. I'm with you. That's that's Times five times. Yeah that's incredible. I have no desire to watch this ever again. I think you're being aid just your age. I'm not being. Ages is not a good movie. It's like paste really weirdly. There's a bunch of things that don't hold up. I will say something that holds up very well. We addressed this earlier. But Holy Shit Young Sandra bullock unbelievable. Like wow seeing her in that in that. Very WEIRD GEM DRESS. It was definitely like wow okay. She had it. You know I agree. Isaac I guess I guess if you WanNa just slake minimize this movie that Chang and I have been talking about as a exploration of the dynamics of the Bologna then a rebuke on rebuke on the overlord state. I guess it's just Sandra bullock in her dress made of Martin. I guess that's all beans then. Okay I'll I we can. We can stop it here but let me ask you as the last note in question. I have is at one point in this movie for anybody. Who's still listening to this and trying to follow along at one point Sylvester. Stallone knits a sweater first. Sandra bullock. I'm not making that up. That's a real thing that happens in this movie. He hits it in one night and gives her this luscious red sweater and she smells it. She puts it up her face in in the inhales deeply of this sweater that sly stallone made and so the last question. I was wondering about for you guys is what do you think? Sylvester Stallone. Smells like guys. Let your car nor he probably. Wow I have never thought about house last alone smells in my life but yeah I'm sure. Yeah that makes sense. Yeah and for some reason coconut oil. Oh yeah copious amounts of coconut oil. That's all I got man. Did you think it was possible to dissect a movie like this as deeply as we've done do you think it's ever been done in the history of mankind? I mean how did this get made exists? And that's a podcast. That goes through bad movies. They did an episode on this. But they're talking about Nietzsche. No no they definitely don't Aura. Guys that's it. Please give us one star on. Or however you read this any any stars will do even a star at at least just. Don't give a zero..

"You're literally looking at cultural artifact for archaeologists something right the waning moments of this happening in Hollywood. Because this doesn't happen anymore. Yeah here's an actual note that I wrote if they all shut the fuck up. This movie would have been over in five minutes. That's what I wrote. It's just rude. That's just rude but yeah what do you think about this look I? I don't want to think too hard about it because it's GonNa make me not like this movie but yeah every everything they do. It's as though this movie was made so that could work for blind audiences as well as as people who could see 'cause they say everything to do is tell don't show this movie could just be a an audio book. Say everything that's happening. It's a podcast podcasts. It could just be a podcast. This movie is a podcast. Yeah they say everything. They're going to do before they do it. And then they do it and they fail at it but when was the last time you saw anything like this could have been like one of the last movies of John? Laura that telegraphed there but dave. There's a reason why I don't know like I'm a huge fan of the fast and furious franchise and I think that like there are a lot of similarities. Like that. Is obviously this sort of descendant of of this movie are the fast and furious movies where it's just pure just like? I'm GonNa say this ridiculous thing and then you're going to see me. Do this ridiculous thing. Nothing is going to be expected. I did think about facile furious franchise a lot while watching it because the jumping out of a burning building the car chase towards the end. That's all like the DNA of this movie. Definitely lives on in that franchise. So you're right that sense. Do you think that it was annoying that they only referenced the Eighties and Nineties for nostalgia for the future? Yeah there's there's literally lethal weapon poster up in the background Liu Nina. Huxley's Office Red Hot Chili peppers poster. It's like so weird. When I saw it in context I it was super clever. I'll be honest as a kid. I was like Oh. That's so funny. Because that's really our world but yeah it's a little over the top. I will say this though. Chang you and I talk often about movie set in the future and whether or not they get the future right and I would love to hear what you guys think about their perception of future. Here it's twenty thirty two. In some senses. Everything is dominated by facetime. Their version of facetime. Everybody communicates via facetime. There are self driving cars. That aren't that different from what we have now. And Yeah what do you guys think? I have a lot to say about this because this is basically the crux of my entire not watching this movie but also watching. His argument is is my whole thing for any movie that takes place in the future for to pass. Muster test is the two thousand one space odyssey right or bladerunner. Those are the two but really two thousand one is number one in Blaine to where you watch a movie and Space Odyssey came out in like seven or known before that late sixties and bladerunner came on like eighty two space odyssey. They even know what the Earth looks like from outer space when they made that that didn't exist so it took real imagination. And if you watch that now from there like going down or space and eating and sleeping and all these things it still makes sense to me as that might be the future right. Even how and blade runner again is a perfect example of that still might be the future. It's so well thought out and constructed that it's like a benchmark where future technology might go where this movie fails the two thousand one space odyssey tests in spades is that there's nothing they use. That isn't technology from nineteen ninety three for the for the most part. Yeah with the exception of one thing that anything is truly genius and future thinking to secure foam went. So God Chang describe what that is. It's something that was that should be here today. Basically with like nanotechnology or something like you get a crash and immediately shoots the safety foam. But you're stuck in place and then you can easily break out of but it's it prevents you from you know trauma physical blunt force trauma. It's brilliant. This image has stuck with me nearly thirty years now this fucking image sly stallone crashes this car and immediately upon impact. The entire car is flooded with foam that solidifies from so he cannot move cannot break a bone. Nothing can happen him it is. I'm like from the time I saw that till now I was like. Why don't cars have that? That's the one two thousand one space odyssey thing that they got that still far ahead in the future. That could possibly happen the other thing. That's interesting again. Why it's SORTA stuck in nineteen ninety-three technology is. They're basing the future of twenty thirty six and there's no cloud the cloud literally would be beyond anyone's comprehension in one thousand nine hundred thirty. Yeah sized alone has to get a physical copy of the security tapes. You can't just download it and using a cd-rom and then plugging into TV's that are not flat screen or anything they're just click TV. Did the other advancement the other major technical advancement in I'm sorry what is his name. Daniel waters has his name in the. What's hers in future as the three seashells and so which we never get an explanation of issue the they come up multiple times. I'll set the scene. I want to hear what you guys think about this but Sylvester Sloan emerges from Kreil freeze. He's been frozen for thirty odd years and he's gotTa take a shit and he comes out and says to the police officers. I don't know if you realize this but you're out of toilet paper and they all start snickering at him and say Oh my God. Yeah back in the twentieth. They used little sheets of paper and Rob Schneider who we didn't mention as one of the cast members here snickers and says Oh. He doesn't know how to use the three seashells so evidently in the future toilet paper has been replaced by three seashells. And here's something that you shouldn't do is think about how someone might use three shells in place of toilet paper. It's like a futuristic day of some sort rate. That's what it's supposed to be so good. I was leaving for you. That was just like a layup and I wanted you to have it and I'm so happy that you jumped all over the three shells. All of my all of my willpower. Not to talk about it. I mean like you know you know that was the only thing I wanted to talk about the three seashells and I don't put putting aside. Here's the question that arose from my whole childhood. I I wondered. How do you used three seashells to clean your? But but then the question. The question that dawn on me today in rewatching this was so faster. Sologne has been incredible freeze for thirty something years. Why does he have to take a Shit Titi when he was put under Kreil freeze and he's been holding in for thirty years and now it's odd? That's a great question. Can we talk about the dystopia underworld future and how it looks exactly like some kind of movie studio in Universal Studios? Looks so wait. They literally shot it in a very clearly a sound stage. Perfect signs everywhere. Yeah so the the underground world where Dennis leary and his band of steam punk freedom fighters live the scraps. Scraps is is is set. They just like I don't know rented from Universal Studios like it was just I? It's barely dressed up as anything. I don't really understand it at all. And what is it? It's like it's supposed to be. I don't know it's supposed to be like a night market. Seen there's just these kind of people running around everywhere. I will say this though and I. I'm I really want to hear what you think about this Dave. So they go down into the underworld and Sandra Bullock and Benjamin. Bratt are are disgusted and they say like Oh my God what is that smell and Sylvester. Stallone immediately recognized as the smell of burgers and he goes and he gets a burr. Orders a burger from Spanish speaking Vendor he orders a beer and a burger and he eats it and finds out that the meat is rat but then successor Sloan. I've never I've never loved his character more than the moment he finds out. It's rat and cocks his head and he takes another bite and says this is the Best Burger. I've had a long time. I was so proud of him. I was so I was so proud of. I'm so proud of well. No he says it's the Best Burger. He's at an along in years before the information hits him but then he takes another bite and says hey not too bad. Yeah but he keeps. He keeps eating it. He keeps on Roy motherfucking here too. We also talk about the hair. How everyone in the underworld has perfect hair? That's been hairsprayed in jail when they haven't taken a shower months you don't have to. It's pretty funny and they haven't yet they have neon signs directing where you need to go all throughout the underworld all right so so Dennis. Leary pits this question. Everybody live up there and you live in doctor Cocteau's world Do what he says and what he wants down here. You might starve to death but she lived free honest answer which of those two worlds is more appealing.

"Well. Thanks for listening to the podcast with Madura joffrey. She's a remarkable person and she's lived an extraordinary life so Hopefully you have followed her career. And if you haven't go by cookbooks and go study up. She has again earned everyone over opinions. I wanted to get to a ask Dave at major DOMO MEDIA DOT COM question. You can continue to email them at ask Dave at Major Domo media DOT DOT COM or send us a five star review on I tunes podcast page and give us stars Senator Question and Blanchard on air this week. We wanted to get to a question by Brian. Liberman I just finished your podcast with Sean. Brock and I was struck by Shawn's comment comment about not wanting to have it son go into the restaurant business. I found this fascinating. Because it reflects the feelings of many immigrant families than spoken with and that I have seen in media including several of your own podcast and productions it has always struck me as conflicting because we hold hard work in such high regard guard. But we'll go to great lengths to make sure our children do not need to work as hard as we do ourselves. I'm interested to know if you as a new father has a similar feelings. Brian of course I do and I sent it is thanksgiving. I am incredibly thankful for my father and all of my Relatives Lives that have emigrated to America and come to this country and carved out a new beginning for my family and relatives You know it's the the only immigrant story than I can tell. And I don't have any Chang relatives that's a doctor or scientist or academic and there are a lot a lot of them but I feel that most of the people I know they came and they from a crane perspective laundromats or they worked at us. Seven seven eleven or a Bodega or something like that and they worked so hard so their kids would never have to do what they did. And my father worked in the restaurant business for almost thirty years working as a dishwasher and then eventually getting out and weirdly got in the Gulf business of all things. But I don't have a single memory of my dad really Outside of like him on the golf course. 'cause I never saw him at all. Zero outside of maybe occasional like like moments but I don't remember day-to-day moments Really spending time mostly with my grandparents simply because he was always working and cooking is a hard job. It office is a liberal love. In when I told my dad I was getting the cookie. Did everything in his power to make sure that I wasn't going to do it and I didn't understand it but I do now. It's an incredibly hard job. Is it the best job in the world. Yes more often than not it can also be one of the dumbest jobs in the world and I wrestle with that not all the time. It's fifty one percent versus forty nine percent. I hate it and I don't know if I would want my son to get into cooking the the choices up to him. I'm not going to prevent him from doing anything but I want to lay it out there pretty clearly that it's a job I love. Its job I try A to continue to educate but I wanted to go in with full is should he choose to do so. Because it's not glamorous I don't think any businesses but particularly the culinary business isn't glamorous in any business that's hard physical labor. It's warped our parents particularly again when I say our parents. I'm talking about immigrant different culture. I'm not speaking for all immigrants. I'm really speaking for my parents. Broke my dad's heart when I would come home with Burns all over my arms and and I would not see anyone for a long time because I was just working kitchens and she kept on saying when. When's this going to end? When are you going to stop doing this? And and do something different. Do something serious and it really made me angry when he said that and I think it really hurt our relationship because I just thought it was being disrespectful to what I wanted to perceive as a career in something I loved and now as a father I can see things differently that I didn't at the time when my dad was really trying not not to get me to cook because I think he saw how hard it was and I understand that we want people to work hard and particularly the culture that I grew up even but you have this idea that your kids or your child. At least my son will have different opportunities and It's funny how things are so cyclical and and I would not surprise me at all. If you go decide in walk in the culinary world but I wanNA make sure that she knows all things that I didn't know and that's the best I can do and I think it's conflicted. I don't know if I have been very articulate in this because it's very confusing for me as well why I would love something and hate it simultaneously but I will tell you that this business of cooking is fucking hard man. It is hard. I'm not even at home right now. I'm in Las Vegas because we're or opening up a new restaurant and if I wasn't opening a new restaurant it'd be working restaurant in for years upon years. I never made it home for Thanksgiving. I probably made it home for Thanksgiving giving four times in like twenty years and it's often holiday that I missed Christmas. Well you hear these things before you start to cook and and I think that it's about options and when my father came to this country she had no options and that's why he worked in the restaurant business which I think it confounded in completely confused as to why I would want to do it and I think he understands now but I totally understand what I talked to Sean Brock or I talked to other shafts. It's not every Sheffield's Assembly. Many chefs are like I'd love it. If my my offspring my child would get into the profession follow them but I seems to me more often than not more more people that are chefs in. This industry are not always excited to have their kid in this. But it's not everyone. A lot of people are excited but for me. Personally I there's other ways to express yourself and there's other ways to be created but if he chooses to be in the colony world I feel like I will have something to help them. I'll have a lot of good advice as for Young Hugo but It's interesting right and I think about a lot more than ever. Obviously having a child about the choices you make in in how you hope that your children to make a better choice than you and I have a lot of thoughts to talk about. But I'm not sure I'm articulating them. Very clearly obviously. I have conflicted feelings about this but that being said I will shut up and have you is is hopefully joy and wonderful Thanksgiving with your friends and your family take easy April..

"Hey everyone it's dave chang. It's going to be a little bit of an unusual week on the podcast. We were scheduled to release a fascinating interview with dr jim. Jim kim former president of the world bank but we're going to be pushing that back so i can address something i found out about yesterday can't really talk about anything else after we found out about this crazy shit some of you may have heard read steve ross the real estate developer investor and owner of the miami dolphins oftens is hosting a fundraiser for the trump campaign this week. The reason i bring this up is one of these companies as investment arm are as adventures has made investments estimates and numerous companies in sports teams around the world including momofuku. I spent the day checking in and discussing things with teams around all around move fuca restaurants and collected my thoughts which share with you now i want to start by saying this and personally am a staunch opponent to president then trump and everything he stands for. I fucking hate him. Anyone that normalizes gun violence white supremacy putting kids into cages his general lack of decency and respect for anyone else. He is destroying our democratic craddock norms. I cannot stand behind him. This is a complicated situation for me personally and i know it raises a lot of questions questions for the people who dina restaurants and supported us over the years watch our shows and listened to the podcast. I want to get to all of that but i need need to address some of the things for the people that work for me at momofuku or appears in this industry i have always worked to champion a safe open open diverse equitable and inclusive world at momofuku. We always strive to be that. We could always be better that has always been our goal. There's simply no other way for a restaurant to be great or have a lasting impact unless you can be a good neighbor to your community and to your peers into the people around you. It's simply put to work in the restaurant. Business is to embrace people from all walks of life and cultures. That is the very thing that makes this business which is so dumb fantastic at times in light of this development. It's incumbent upon all of us at momofuku to double down on our commitment coming into one another. We must reinforce the culture of tolerance and empathy that we worked so hard to build these past fifteen years and realized that talk is cheap. We we must show it in action every day roughly three thousand people dining restaurants that's more than a million people each year. We have to beat so much better because we have the opportunity to influence and inspire everyone of them with our actions. Yes our goal is to show them hospitality and generosity but my secret hope is that we can also do our small part to fight cultural bias and bring people greater understanding through food and since two thousand four. I hope people can see that's what we've tried to do. I also have to emphasize that. I don't expect everyone at momofuku komo food to share my beliefs so long as you are respectful to your colleagues and dutiful to your responsibilities. You'll have a place in our company. Even though i hate trump now for everyone else who doesn't work and momofuku or no us as well i won't sugarcoat the situation or pandered ended you with an explanation of the realities of restaurants and modern finances and the complexities of investing and all that shit as a person in general i just always want to be on the right side of the moral fence having the moral compass to help us make the right decisions hard decisions. Steve was the only potential investor who believed in the vision of what mahmoud could could be an offers us the freedom to seek fat out nevertheless. We're on the wrong side here. The fact is our investor is supporting the campaign of a person. I emphatically stand against steve. If you're listening and i know that you listen to this podcast sometimes i respect and admire you as a businessman is men. You have been a champion of all the values of momofuku. You've done a great deal for us as a company and i truly appreciate it but i'm imploring you to reconsider hosting this fundraiser it flies in the face of everything we believe in that moment fhu it frightens many of the people that work for you you and contradicts what i hope to accomplish by taking your money in the first place we will have to figure all this out somehow finally the only for their fans of the day of chiang show. I'm sure that some of you don't even want to hear the ship or unaware of it but this is all aligned everything we do whether it's food or media everything we do is representative the very values that i believe who stands for but for those that are troubled by what i'm telling on you as always please feel free to reach out diaz or send an email at ask david major domo media dot com even exist to express your frustration in anger. I'm listening. No one's more fucking pissed off than me. I'm so pissed off that even sound trump just saying that shit no one is more frustrating. It's been a long day and i the last thing i want. The last thing i ever thought i'd have to do is defend my stance against fucking trump. Thanks everyone we're back tomorrow probably.

Shifting gears a little bit your stories while no lots of books, Netflix chace table episode, which was great and master chef. There's a lot of articles written about you. The story I think is well known, and if you haven't and you don't understand how she's gotten to where she has plenty of material out there and I highly encourage you guys to go down that rabbit hole. What is it that you think has not been covered that people don't know. Good question. I think that the thing that is often not celebrated for anyone me you like the people that we know closest is the stuff that's not exciting on paper. It's like the everything that happens on the days that are hard and uncomfortable or that are seemingly normal, and that it takes a really long time to build what we've built or to figure out what we figured out. It takes a network of us, probably a small network of people you're willing to trust. It's a lot of tears. It's a lot of sweating. It's a lot of vomiting. It's a lot of dizzying, but the secret to it all is sticking with it. And none of it's like none of it's we wouldn't be interested in doing it if it were easy. But I guess it's the things that haven't been covered or like the grueling moments that no one's interested in hearing about which is like every other day, except for opening day or every other day, except for opening week or every other day that you're not being recognized, you don't have award none of which or actually how I measure success anyways, like for me successes going home at night and being like, did I do a good job? It's we talked about it twelve years ago. Maybe like how weird it is to be a boss after you figure out how to be a great cook where you know the measure of your success is like, did I get my prep list on that? I get it done that I crush it that I get it done faster today than I did yesterday. What is your measure of getting your prep list or crushing service? Like how do you measure that? That we're so conditioned to that being are measuring, how do you measure it in my measure at the end of day is like, did I do a good job in a good job for me is like, was I good person in the world today? Did I do something that actually challenged me the challenge someone else that left a little bit of an impact in the world that made it better, not in a way that's measured on any other level. And I think that's probably the most unspoken part of my world in our industry at large is for most of us

"Welcome to the Dave Chang show part of the ringer podcast network and major Domo media that was y'all Tango, and today I am lucky to have the great snowboarder. Maybe the greatest female snowboarder of all time. Chloe, Kim, recent gold medalist of the young Chang Olympics and someone that I've gotten to know a little bit over the past year. I talk a little bit too much about how we met. We met at the NBC studios and I made her Tristram sandwich that got a little bit of the news, but it was not what I wanted to do. And if anything, even though I don't know, khloe Kim that well, I weirdly, like trying to be a better older brother type figure to her and protect her as much as I can from the nonsense that's out there. And I really admire her. She's endured a lot to get to the golden to where she's at and who she is as a person and what she represents as not just a great. Athlete, not just a Crean American, but someone that I think is Representative of not being pigeonholed and excelling at that and defying sort of what your steer type might be and Chloe, Chloe, Kim. And I wrote her time one hundred induction piece for the past year. She was honored in the time, one hundred and in it I was saying just like, can be khloe, Kim. She's had to endure a lot. She's had to carry the burden of being a Representative Koreans and Korean American culture and snowboard culture. And at the time she was only seventeen so much of what I believed was everyone wanted to dictate how she should be and how she represents Crean American culture and being a role model and having a little bit of that myself, even though I'm much older than Chloe, I wanted to make sure that she got to write her own destiny. And you know the same thing, she doesn't eat any of my help, but she's been doing just fine on her own. So I was. Stoked that we reached out to Chloe and she agreed to do this because I think she's a role model for everyone including myself as to how you can write your own narrative and sort of defy the expectations. And I was really stoked to have her onboard without further ado. This is my conversation with Chloe, Kim. Am really stoked to have khloe Kim on as guest today. She's currently eating cookie. Chewing. I'm happy to be here. So last we saw each other was in the NBC studios in the Olympic village in punk Chang. I just remember your face being like, I think it was like what the hell is going on. It was a lot. Yeah, after I won, it was like, okay, really excited. I'm happy I won. I wanna go see my family, but I couldn't see my family until after the awards and all that stuff. I remember turning my sister's is bawling her eyes out and not pretty crying for sure. And then some parents briefly. And then I just had to go back to my room change into media outfit. And then we got shipped away to the coastal village to do press for like five, six hours are just like holy hell, like the entire world seem to be following your moves from every tweet that you did to winning the gold medal, which we'll talk about later. But I remember. Over here in from the producers because we were doing stuff for the NBC Olympics that like, hey, Chloe, Kim's coming around this time. You gotta do this, this and this. And I was like, no disrespect. I wanna leave her alone. Like, I'm sure everyone wants to talk to where in she's just going to have this release. So I will remember being like, I'm gonna void her as much as I want to talk to you. I was like, no, when a give her space, and then you came in there was a big hush in the offices. And then I just left the Mike Trico show and then you are going right on that right after me. And then I'm having like a Cup of coffee or something, and I don't remember who it was, but one of the producers was like, hey, like you shouldn't like khloe. Listen, I wanna leave the hell on the twentieth time and I'm Willie competitive. Obviously you are and someone started throwing shade like one of the producers like you couldn't cook for Chloe, Kim. You couldn't do this this, and I was like, I don't know what happened by snap, and I was like, screw it. I'm gonna. To go to the commissary and I'm gonna make you sure is sandwich out of pizza dough. And next thing I know it happened. I somehow like in this room and then you in and I was just like, this is incredibly surreal experience. I have no idea what's going on, but now I have a glimpse of what your life was like. Day that show sandwich. So good. A saying, you should add that to your dessert menu. Arrest warrants would love to, but I was not something that I would ever want to do like that's just something I don't do, but it has been even before the Olympics and then you win the gold. I'm trying to find words, which is why I want to hear from you, what's it been like winning the gold and to where it is now at like, it's been several months, what's been happening? I mean, I guess I'll just talk the whole process late twenty seventeen. I was like, okay, like khloe is expected to win the Olympics and the country that our parents were born in nice before I knew I was on the team. I was talking about being an Olympian and going to the Olympics and hoping I'll do. And it's not that I wanted to talk about it as more like, that's just what we had to do. Because everything that I talked about at those interviews was gonna be released during the Olympics. So it was like, just thinking like, how terrible would it be if I hate myself up like this and. I don't even make the team personally. The whole qualification process was a living nightmare. Like I was so scared and I was so nervous every contest. Thankfully, I won the first two which guaranteed my spot, but I was still so terrified. Can you talk a little bit about that? Feelingly everyone probably expects and myself to like, oh, she's definitely going to win this. I can't imagine the crazy pressure that's under how do you deal with that? Yeah, you know, it's not like. You win by being the best in the field. It's not like you win for having the most votes like being the most likeable person. At the end of the day, it comes down to how good you are your sport and for me like, yeah, I mean, I definitely did pretty well before the Olympics, but I've never competed at such a big in a such a big event before where everything was so much more formal than our normal contests carrying around credential. Even those little things made me feel so out of place in a sense. So yeah, I mean, I was definitely very nervous and even frustrated. Sometimes this having so many people expecting me to win something I've never been to and keep telling myself. It's my first Olympics, like I just wanna do the best I can, but if I don't win, that's fine. Like as long as I'm happy with the way I was writing, then I'd be okay, but he no go on social media and everyone's like khloe Cam favored to win gold at the Olympics. Like would be the young. Snowboarder ever win a gold medal in just like, why do you guys do this to me? Like I'm just doing what I love. Why are you trying to change the story? Just add more pressure to me. Like I don't like pressure. I never really felt pressure until the Olympics, and I didn't really know what to do with myself. But I mean, I was with my team in all my friends than people that I trusted and I just made sure to keep those people really close and feel as home as possible. You love snowboarding obviously, but at some point is like, hey, there's a lot of great things that have happened because of it. But right now, all the baggage this is making it not worth it l. absolutely. It's like I started snowboarding because I loved it. And for the first time, it almost felt like a job. And I felt like I had to provide for everyone in a sense like it wasn't felt like I wasn't doing it for me at one point because of all my fans, and even, you know, a lot of Korean people had very high expectations, and I'm very grateful for that. When. People expect you to win. Let's you know it's pretty good thing, but at the same time I just didn't want to let anyone

"And bartenders, and the b. o. h. back of the house are the cooks and we just overloaded. Everyone was so much information. But I think as I turned forty and I've been in business now some time, I think Finally, I have better maturity to execute some of the ideas that I've always wanted. A lot of that happens because I have people that I can trust. So right off the bat, we wanted to let people know our expectations of them as a cook. It's from how you label something to how you take notes down to how you rap stuff in plastic, how you organize. And it dawned on me that like all these things happen in piecemeal in a normal restaurant. But we wanted to set the code and the benchmark right off the bat that, hey, we're going to falter. We're not going to always be our best. But we have to remind ourselves that even our worst day, we need to like hold ourselves accountable to make all these small things right? And it may not make any sense to the listener. But basically when you are opening a restaurant lease, how I've done it, someone new comes in, even though you have established team and culture and you just expect them to assimilate. You don't explain to them, hey, this is how we do it here, right? You just be like, hey, they're going to sink or swim, and while that works and can be infective I think it's just also very hard to figure out and we have a really strong group of cooks in over two months. We've only lost two. 'cause you kill them? No, I've thought about it. Sometimes was a literally a death in the family and another one was a can't talk about. No, they're gonna come back. Okay. It's just so you stabbed them, but they're covering. Now they're, they're going to come back in April. They just had to take care of something. So you have not had staff turmoil, which is good, almost no staff turnover. We haven't even mentioned it that the restaurant is like the biggest success in like five or six years away, kind of buried the lead on that one. Well, let's go backwards though. Because the last time you did this, you didn't know what was on the menu and you really nervous about stuff, but you also couldn't tell us stuff because I still didn't know. Right. I didn't know if you're hiding something. Are you going in January, didn't know when you look at what was the biggest fork in the road for you? How do you explain what we're doing? Our food I felt had so much narrative and so much explaining that I was worried that it would be lost in trying to be, you know, while we're not trying to be pretentious, I thought the food and explaning of it could easily become that. So explaining like people now, like I'm going to tie restaurant. I'm going to Asian fusion restaurant. You felt like you didn't have the two where even turn the dishes that we were trying to do. I made that mistake in the past of. Trying to explain and being sometimes too blonde or too verbose or whatever. Like I didn't know what angle to play. Secondly, we're in Los anti-debt. You had the angle as you. This is David Chang's Reynaud. That doesn't work anymore. That's really Howard though. No trust this guy. I've heard good. I'm going to go. And then the food was really what I think part of that was having the confidence trust myself because in the years past, I think I've also that confidence. Yeah, we'll buy a lot of this. If you're doing was in New York, where people knew who you were, you couldn't trade on your name as much anymore, and it had to be like, what's his next big thing? What's he doing now? Whereas here it's like David Chang here. Great. Well, we get a service food part of my unease about that with something we've spoken about before. I didn't want us to be the land falcons versus the patriots to Superbowls ago. Yeah, where I love them now come. You know, it's hard to be able to make decisions when you have the lead like you can be paralyzed by it. And that's a weird place to be when you have such a big lead that that's why call it hubris. I like you don't even understand why you got there, but you believe in the lead instead of believing in yourself, and then you sort of lose your way a little bit. And I wouldn't say that necessarily how isn't as sixteen, keep going. Yeah. And like you know, you gotta eat humble pie sometimes, and we spoke about that in the previous pods. But part of that was finding like my confidence and it wasn't that me being confident in me and something that I've spoken about internally before it was like, hey, I'm going to explain to people like you just trust me. Listen to me. I'm not saying listen to me because you gotta listen to me, listen to me because I actually don't know what I'm doing. Yeah, that makes any sense. And that was part of feeling that like nausea again where I'm not feeling comfortable about it. And so listen me because I need your help. And I might say things that I haven't sorted out my head yet and you can help me get to the next level or but more so I don't know where we're going. Right, but listen to me, not because I have the answer, but we need to literally look at the process and just make mistakes. What I'm trying to say is like, hey, it's like we need to make adjustments at halftime that everything's gonna work, and we have to know it didn't wear like get data back and you need to look at that data and you can't. Do the same thing if it didn't work before, and that's part of that process. And if you have really good people and you have right intentions, you care enough and think tremendously good things can come out of it. But part of that is you need to be in that freefall. You need to be comfortable with that sort of not knowing what's going to happen. And while I'm comfortable with it, it's not a good feeling. A lot of people don't like working like that push, you need people a little outside the French, like someone like me who's like, hey, less than I was there. But you weren't there in the MAC and cheese wasn't chasing. That's good information. Yeah, you want data. So then there was a lot of uncertainty as to what was happening, and I didn't know what was going to work. I had some ideas, but part of it was going against what is traditionally conventional wisdom. The decision that's the lowest hanging fruit or the most efficient decision is not maybe the right decision. And that's really hard to challenge yourself. Yeah, right. As like a sports analogy, I remember like the Super Bowl, unfortunately, this time around the eagles. Verse the pats when they went for it on four down yet I'm in religion that audio just gives me goosebumps. That is fucking awesome to be able to have that inland is. Because like to go for four down and to do that play where they're doing a pitch to the running back and a throw to the quarterback that's easily the dumbest decision you could possibly make. Yeah. Even if your practice it because it defies what you probably should do, which is kick afield yet, and some good things can happen out of like really untraditional thinking and that sort of where I want us to be at my team, the b. at in the restaurant to be an and there was all this uncertainty and I wanted us to actually grow from that uncertainty at that point like anything, it'd be possible and it's really hard to get Abreu of people together to commit to not knowing what might happen. And to me, that's a feeling of total terror. Yeah, and excitement because that's how new stuff can happen. So what happened with the opening? My biggest fair was the location. Yeah,
