Will Joe Biden be the Food Tech President?

"We're here for another editorial podcast. We're gonna go around the horn. We have with this gin marston jen. Hello chris albrecht are you. I'm good how you doing mike. I'm doing well. I feel like today's this week is a little more relaxing than last week. Which i know about you guys kept hitting refresh. My browser to get news. Don't have to do that this week. just a little bit of a relief on that regard but the the food tech news is actually pretty hyper active this week and i feel like there's been like three or four stories around mcdonald's in the new plant beefburger alone chris the mkx plant. Can you tell what's going on with that dude. I have no idea. It's kinda crazy. So they announced yesterday they had some investor virtual investor day. today were recording on tuesdays. This was monday suddenly like. Oh we've got this thing called plant. So this is a notable for a few reasons. One of which being mcdonald's has sort of sat out here in the us anyway on the plant based burger craze so whereas burger king introduced impossible whopper last year and white castle has it's impossible sliders and even burger king had an upper. Kfc had dipped its toes in with some pilots on plant based chicken. You hadn't heard anything from mcdonald's than they had run some tests with something. They called the plt eighties. Kid makes me think of pyti but the plt up in canada which they did in conjunction with beyond. Now here's where it gets interesting. Because in the announcement yesterday they said. Hey we're making this plant Which on its own makes you want to say macpoilin for those people who watch the it's always sunny in philadelphia the The so this mc plant burger is coming next year But they didn't say who what they said. Actually they said developed Culinary team made by mcdonald's for mcdonalds so hearing that was like okay. they're making their own. They tried beyond didn't do what they wanted to do. So they're making their own and then a lot of people reported this right so beyond stock took a tank took a dive yesterday. Because they're like. Oh you're not be doing it for mcdonald's and then mcdonald's came around and said oh actually you know actually rephrase this so mcdonald's center around a clarification and let me just because this gets crazy so their pr person sent me calms team. Sent me an email saying in the same way. Mcdonalds has not run its own farms. We are not manufacturing plant based meat for the client platform notice. It's a plant for platform about a food We will rely on our suppliers the third leg and mcdonald's three legged stool blah blah blah blah blah. Right then it says mc beyond meat was our testing partner for the plt plant based burger in canada and we have not announced which suppliers we will work with on mcclymont so clear as mud like cagey cage. Yeah well and then beyond came out yesterday and said hey actually. We co created the plant and You know they were but that was on their own call. Mcdonald's didn't say anything about it right so The but beyond said beyond meat and mcdonald's co created the plant based patty which will be available as part of mc plant platform. But they don't say going forward. That beyond meat is the supplier right. So this may sound muddled because it we're still trying to figure sort through the news it does sound like there may be implying it but there's no definitive i did I think you may be posted in the slack. The picture of the beyond beyond meat stock in lewis. One of those pictures were it. Went off a cliff around eight. A m and win. There's a curfew Around at all of a sudden jumped back up like it was a huge like And so i. I don't understand the kgb's mcdonald's wants everyone to think that they do everything themselves. But like we know they don't grow their own potatoes or simply naito they. We know that they work with the we know they don't own a cattle. The work with farmers wasatch secretiveness. I i don't have. They ever co branded a burger before I don't think so no so. I mean that you could say that for anybody like i don't have white castles. That are burger. King has ever done that but you know they look at impossible. Burger right with the impossible Beyond the big. Doesn't i mean burkey has impossible right rapper. And and i guess from mcdonald's perspective maybe thinking well there's not a lot of differentiation if like all of a sudden a bunch of other fast food restaurants are having beyond meat in their burgers I think maybe they just wanna claim that it's uniquely felt for them I don't know other than that. I can't really feel why. I mean i think then possible walker was developed. Fairly uniquely for them. I mean it. Has that weird kind of gross x-ray on like that a grill taste or that flame royal tastes that his uniquely burger king. Impossible has Which makes me think they've spray somewhere chemical on it but But i i get it and by the way mc plant can we just discuss the name a little bit like myself walked in. He goes dead. Mcdonald's has a new plant burger called mc plan because he goes. I started laughing. How dumb the now. This is my teenage son. So yeah it's not playing well the number that it is has it said. It's like so absurd. You can't forget it

"Had the blackout hood the black treatment on the hood with the three forty wedge decal on it and I thought Oh my God. That's cool so I ran over there to look at it and it was the only Brown car that I've ever seen and at very first side I was like all all that is perfect for that car. That color is perfect and I went over there and it had one of those Hang Tags in the In the windshield hanging off the rear view mirror and it said three thousand dollars and I looked at the car and you know thinking back if I remember right it was pretty clean for what it was and for three grand back then I remember my dad kind of thinking that that was a little bit too high of a price and maybe it was but the car Dr. If I remember this right has split bench a column shift automatic and like I said the blackout hood with the three forty wedge. DECAL on it even in its dark brown color. I thought this car was bad ass. I thought about how different my early years of driving would have been had. My Dad bought me that car sometimes terms and you know how fun it would have been spent a couple years working on that car with him before I was old enough to drive. But that's not how the cards played laid out and I never got that car and I actually just recently a dealership in Texas had the exact car maybe not the exact car but the car that they had was splitting image of the one that I saw in Seattle that day and if I could have afforded that car I would have bought it just just because I missed out on that opportunity as a kid and I hate missed opportunities to other cars that would have changed my history. You were a complete project. Nineteen sixty eight Barracuda and a running driving Formula S.. Three Forty Barracuda. That if I remember right was also a sixty eight neither of those panned out for me either so I would have to wait over a decade to realize my childhood dreams but I like to think that everything happens for a reason even if it sucks. I ended up waiting quite a long time to get my classic Mo- parts but I have them now. Oh and I am happy. Let's go back to my younger years for a minute like most car enthusiasts. I learned all of my favorite words watching and quote unquote quote helping. My Dad worked on his vehicles. When I was young I learned every four letter word in the Book and watching my dad work on cars and quote unquote Helping him was a very fond childhood. Memory right up there with going to look at cars with my dad. My Dad and I have the strongest bond in the fact that we both love cars every time we get together the subject always turns to cars and I don't think that has ever changed changed. My Dad was never obsessed with Moe Pars like I ended up becoming. He was just a car guy who just so happened to own a few Mo- parts along the away. He loves MOPEDS. Don't get me wrong but with me. The exception is that I tend to fixate in obsess over things and the first MO- apar- muscle car that I saw that really changed. My world was at that. Same dealership the seventy duster was at now. I don't remember how long long before I saw that. I saw this car but this dealership was one that my dad and I would frequent all the time just to see what they had on the lot. We would go there and just walk around and look at the cars but one time we were there. I remember it was a little bit dark outside. And all the streetlights were shining down on the front line and the car was a nineteen seventy plymouth. KHUDA painted F J Five Limelight Green. And I I don't know if it was a real a are or clone but I'll never forget it. The lights were shining down on it and the green just stuck out like a sore thumb mm-hmm and I was immediately. You know like like a duck to water. I was over there looking at the car and it was the first time mm that I ever stuck my head inside an old Mo par muscle car and took a whiff and that changed my sense of smell forever. Because I'm a freak in the fact that I absolutely love the smell of old mo par muscle car. It seems like they all have the same smell. Maybe it's just me okay but I absolutely love it and I wish that you could buy little tree airfresheners that the Senate was old mo par. I'd buy them by the box ox. That's what a freak I am but I'll never forget that car I remember. The price was like ten nine five or something like that and I remember. We're just looking at my dad going. This is it. That was another one of the cars where I was like. This is it dad. Let's get this one and again leaving. I'm disappointed so for some reason. My Dad I wish we would a test drove it. I don't know what my dad was thinking I would have said. Hey let's get the keys this thing and tell you I spent you know but never got to that point and that car is the one that made me understand. Because it was the coolest looking Mo- apart I had ever seen in person it just I don't know if it was the color or the car but there's something about a Green Barracuda that still to to this day. Every time I see F J five Barracuda. I remember that car and I remember the Dow was the car that sparked my i. I absolutely love. Promo- PARM also cards. Because up until that point I was only exposed to you know my dad's van and the Daytona and the Lebaron and the Sundance. I had never been that close to a high impact colored mope our muscle car and it was so cool but like I said I opened the door stuck my head in there and for some reason I just took. Oh big whiff and my senses came alive and I'll never forget that car and I will never forget that smell. Mike Dart has that smell. It's crazy Every once in awhile I will go over to my daughter and I will take a big whiff of it. I'm just kidding. I don't do that but it does have the same smell and I think that's funny but like like I said I tend to fixate on things and that Khuda definitely cemented my love for mopeds muscle cars. It changed the way that I look at cars. And as time went on the MO- pars climbed in price they got less obtainable. And you now. I knew that it would be a long time Right there for a while went. Once I saw the prices of muscle cars and anymo- par that was classic for that matter. I saw the prices just climbing and they were just getting further and further out of reach for me and then you know life happened. I went out and I met my wife life or my future wife and we are living in an apartment and I just had no place to work on a moped muscle car so my dreams were halted for just a little bit and fast forward to four years ago in Twenty fifteen. I had always wanted to mow par but I was just never in a position to get one and I finally got one in. That was The story of my Dart if you haven't heard that story yet go back to episode number four. And that's the story of how how I obtained my first classic Mo Par Two Thousand Fifteen was. When I decided to let my freak flag fly and profess my love of Mo- parts is to the world by starting a facebook page called the mot part hunter it was largely sparked by a somewhat famous nineteen sixty-nine Charger Daytona? That sat parked worked in a driveway. By the Alderwood Mall I was familiar with the car for many years as a kid at least my entire high school career and probably a little bit longer and I would go. I would check up on that car every once in a while and you know a few times a year and I decided to start taking pictures and sharing airing all the cool stuff that I would run across just because I you know I saw facebook pages and I gotta be honest. Not Very many of my friends you guys. I have a lot of mope our friends now because of the moped hunter page but before the Mo par hunter a a lot of my friends. Are Ford guys. A couple of Chevy guys Summer import guys and nobody was as enthusiastic easy. Ask about Mo- pars as myself. I have shown them how obsessed I am and now anytime they come across a Mo- par on the street or somebody's yard or something like they always. I'm the first person that they get to. And they are excited to tell me about him so I think that's really cool that I built this brand that I'm the Mo par guy I out of all my friends out of all the friends from my childhood that I'm the Mo par guy so I think that's funny and you know it's not a bad thing I don't mind it even people at work or starting to go cut he's nuts in he's the Mo par guy you know so that's cool. I don't mind that at all. I am the MO par guy. I am the MO par. We're hunting okay. Let's not forget that I started the Mo par hundred page with the motor stuff. I came across online or in real life and I would use is it is a way to document my I mo project and things got out of hand in a couple of thousand post later here we are talking on a podcast. How crazy is that? I finally have a couple of classic Mo- Pars and my love and enthusiasm for them is stronger than ever. This is why I love listener stories and why I chose to create this podcast because everyone has a different story to tell and they are all cool in their own right. If any of you who have sent in stories are like me. You probably really struggled a little bit with not writing an entire book about it. I could go on and on about why love Mo par so much and keep telling stories but my story is just one of many that shapes the culture as moped enthusiasts we all share the common bond. Kind of our love of Mo- pars and I can't wait to hear your story so as long as you keep sending them in. I'll keep sharing them. That's my story folks and.

"It and sadly Nanna passed away a few years ago and she never got to hear this true story so if she's listening Nanna I'm sorry I'm pretty sure I jacked up your car car racing that Station Wagon my dad's GonNa hear the story and he still has her car and the engine is still messed up. oops sorry so that's one of the other MO- pars if you can even call it that with garbage Mitsubishi under the hood That car although I despised it in some ways I cherished it and others because my grandma and I were so close. When I was a kid I was always in that car? You you know and I just when I think about that car I think about her. And that's what would make it hard for me to get rid of. But at the same time I hated good that car so much and my memory of Graham is so much more than that Chrysler Lebaron but when I look at it I I just remember her and all the funny little the things that would happen to us in that car I could go on for awhile but if you knew my grandma you you would understand how funny she could be unintentionally. She was one of those grandmothers who was unintentionally. Funny you know what I mean but moving on the other mo par that I would loathe throughout my early to late teens was my dads nineteen eighty eight Plymouth Sundance. The car always had a weird smell and it wasn't a bad smell. It was just a weird one for some reason would give me headaches when I was in that car. I have no idea why it was just a thing. It also had that typical Chrysler Peeling Paint Syndrome. It looked like This car was spotted P. O. S.. The paint was peeling off in such a way that it looked as though a flock of birds all flew over the car the same time and took a dump right on the car. I rented my dad dropping me off at school in that peo s I dreaded it he eventually got got it repainted and surprise. I still hate it. I will say this though actually thought it was GONNA be my first car long before like it was a couple couple years before I started driving. I was already as a kid. I wanted nothing more than to drive. That's what I wanted to do. I going back to my grandma's Lebaron. There was a little toy store. kind of like a weird shop Down the street from our house. Some of you in Seattle will know this name. It's Archie mcphee's. He's back in the nineties. Archie mcphee's was within walking distance from my house. Because I live right by gasworks park and I walked down down to Archie mcphee's one day and they had this box full of steering wheel's like random steering wheels and I wanted to drive so bad that I ran home and told my grandma I have to have the steering wheel. I have to have the steering wheel and she ended up taking me back down to the store bought me the steering will and every day for the rest of the time that my grandma took me to school in the morning I would sit in the passenger seat with the steering wheel in my lap and I would mimic everything. She was doing as she was driving thinking back. That's a really good memory. I I haven't thought about that in in years but yeah I would. I would basically drive to school without driving to school. I would sit there and I would mimic everything she did when people pull drove cars. I watched with intent because I wanted to do the same thing so bad. But that's just a interesting memory from the Lebron going back to the Sundance. I thought this was going to be my first car. And you know sometimes you just have to come to grips. Because as like at the time I was like you know I can't have anything cool. I don't have any kind of money like that and if I can get this car you know I figure figure out something to do to make it cool tonight so in a desperate attempt to make it even remotely drivable to my standards. I searched and searched online to find out what I could do to make it tolerable. And that's actually the first time I learned about Carroll Shelby's involvement with Chrysler in the nineteen eighteen eighties. I was like thirteen or fourteen at the time and the Internet was still pretty young and I discovered the shelby. CSX I I really WANNA do a high-performance heritage episode of this show on the one thousand nine hundred eighties from wheel drive Mo- pars in the future. which which I know some of you Mo- par muscle guys may not be fond of? But I hope you'll find a way to power through with me because I love those cars and I know a lot of you listening. Do and and you know me. I'm a MO- par guy and I don't discriminate so we're GONNA talk about those cars to and I actually. My Dad and I have a tiny little collection Russian of eighties front wheel drive turbo. Mo- pars we have an eighty four DODGE DAYTONA TURBO Z on eighty seven shelby Eh. CSX A eighty seven dodge Daytona Shelby Z. and eighty eight dodge Daytona Shelby Z.. And then my dad has picked up in eighty six dodge Daytona Turbo Z Cs so that's cool So we kind of have a little fetish for turbo mopeds. They're fun cars to drive. And those are all projects on the back burner with the exception of my dad's eighty six Daytona He drives that every once in a while. Got Tee tops. It's a pretty cool little car for the eighties but going back to the Sundance in how I almost got stuck driving it. I was doing all this research. And then I came across the shelby. CSX and I immediately noticed the difference between in that car and the Sundance. That I was thinking I was going to end up with the big difference being that the CSX was a tutor and the sundance was a four door but But there were similarities in certain parts of the car so immediately I was like I need to get that hood with that. You know that bulge in it that that Turbo Hood and I need to get that grill because the shelby. CSX Grill transforms the front of the car. And I was I was looking for those parts and to make a long story short. I never actually ended up. Getting the Sundance is the first car. In fact it would be fourteen years before I actually had a classic Mo- part to call my own. During those dark days I owned many different makes models because it always seemed that Mo- parts were out of my reach both due to price and space. I simply had no place to take on a moped project thinking back. I'm glad things played out the way they did. Because the path that I was on has led me here talking to you so as much as I wish I could have had you. You know a Kumo par back then. I'm not sure I'd be here talking to you right now if I did so. I guess it all worked out in the end. I didn't have a moped car when I was young for lack of trying. I'll tell you that much when my dad would tell me stories about cruising in his Dr and going Golden Guards to attend the street races in the early seventies I longed for having experiences like those I felt like I had grown up in the wrong era and I say that all the time I still feel that way to this day when I see pictures from the golden era of drag racing and the old timey street races that stuff to me me I just thank God. It must have been so cool to be able to go to that stuff and be alive during the heyday of classic muscle. Cars that it must have been a crazy experience. I love talking to people that have had those experiences in share their stories. When I was a kid my dad and I would you know our father son bonding time was going to look at cars so it was? I had so much fun doing it that I was always on the hunt to find cars for my dad and I to go look so I was looking at classified sections auto traders and anytime I found something cool that was local to us. I would show my dad and we would find a way to look at it. That was always such a good time for me and the only thing that was a bummer about it is. It could get disappointing because I was a kid and I had ulterior motives. I wanted every car that I took my dad to go see. The thing was is that my dad wasn't GonNa buy those cars he just wanted to spend some time with me and go look at him and he thought that it was like our own little. Well you know our own little thing where we just go and look and he thought that we were under the understanding that we weren't taking any of them home and he was so wrong because every every car we went and looked at it I was like why are we buying and I mean it. There was a couple of times we got into it. Pretty good because I was like. Why do we go and look at these cars? If you're not going to buy any of them and you know that's when he kind of told me that you know. I thought it was fun that we go and do this and then I realized Oh okay I see so once. I realized where he was coming from. It was a little bit easier on my young psyche but there were a few Mo- parts that I looked out with my dad before I was even old enough to drive that. Had My dad bought any of them. They would've undoubtedly changed my path in life but that never happened. My plan plan to get a moped while I was young. And have it ready. By the time I was sixteen completely failed and I tried so hard to get him to buy one one of those cars for me. But here's some of the cars that we ran across that. I really wish I could have had the one car that really sticks out in my mind was a brown. Nineteen seventy-three forty duster hidden in the back of a car. Lot called Detroit auto works on Aurora Avenue in Seattle for three thousand one dollars Some of you local Seattle will know that dealership. They had a lot of hoop days but they had some nice cars every once in a while. But it wasn't like a the high end you know classic car dealership It was all outdoors. They didn't have an indoor showrooms and they were basically like driver quality cars. So if I knew then what I know now I would have been able to verify that it was in fact a legit three forty car. I remember seeing this car. The way their lot was set up they had like this little bullpen like paddock and it was behind a fence. To get the back part of the law it was sandwiched in between two other cars. And I remember walking through a lot with my dad glancing over in seeing the front end of this thing.

"chris albrecht" Discussed on Talking Mopars

"He's never heard me talk about this and my wife hasn't heard the whole story either and my best friends have never even heard this story. So here is how my obsession in with cars specifically Mo- pars came to be enjoy. The first few years of my life were spent in Mo- parts but not the ones you would typically expect. I didn't actually grow up around mope our muscle cars by the time I was born in one thousand nine hundred five. My Dad's sixty nine dodge dart was long gone on. So instead of a body mo par grew up around to Mow Pars. That would shape how I feel about transportation the rest of my life. My Dad traded in his his dodge dart for a brand new black. Nineteen seventy five tradesman cargo van and he became a banner he went from cruising in his dart in going on the street races and is cruising around having a good time to trading that in getting a van a cargo van to join the van mccrae's so he customized that van from the ground up. Porthole Windows Louvers big spoiler on the back that It had a yeah. It was a really cool looking spoiler. Fender flares sunroof crushed velvet interior with shag carpet tinted windows big side pipes and appliance steel. Spoke wheels come to think of it. I said on the episode where I talked about my Dr. They might dad's car his Dr had reverse crackers on it but now that I think about it I believe they were actually appliance steel spokes. That's that I just wanted to clear that up. In case somebody went looked at the pictures you know did some fake news reporting on me so he actually had appliance steel spokes on his. I do have have crackers for mine. That van was sold to my uncle. Ray Rest in peace on a few years after I was born and I spent a lot of time cruising around to Van Fares with my dad got in that van. I will never forget those. I still dig the book events to this day and maybe if my wife can get past the whole creeper van stigma. I'll get one someday. So let's talk about some of the other mope cars of my youth in Nineteen eighty-five when I was born. My Dad's set out to get a sports car. He had already built his van and I think he just wanted to have some fun again behind the wheel because vans aren't that Nimble and I think he just wanted ended a fun little sports car because at the time he was taking me so we live in western Washington At the time we were living in Seattle and my mom lived in eastern Washington so every weekend my dad was driving across the mountains and he needed something that was reliable and good on gas or better on gas than any van. That was going over there or anything like that so he ended up getting a black nineteen eighty five dodge dodge Daytona Turbo Z. It had louvers just like the van and funny enough louvers or making a comeback. I've seen a lot of these cars running running around with louvers on him including Mo- pars so I think that's pretty funny and I guess it just goes to show that history does in fact repeat itself. The Turbo Z was black with the red pinstripe. Sun Roof it had the louvers like already said a manual transmission and my favorite part of the car Chrysler's electronic voice alert system. If you don't know what. The electronic voice alert was in Chrysler cars in the nineteen eighties. Look it up on Youtube. The car had a robotic doc. Eighties voice I mean. Think nightrider okay. I and I'm not kidding. So it has this eighties robotic voice. That would alert you to things like low oil pressure low fuel Low Windshield washer fluid and it would tell you to fasten your seatbelts and it would even thank you for doing so. You have to understand that so it would say like warning. Your oil pressure is low warning it you know so. It was hilarious like thinking back so eighties like so eighties. But at the time you have to understand that that as a kid this was nothing short of magic. This was a talking car. My Dad owned nightrider. Only this was cooler because it was dodge Daytona Turbo Z. I remember bragging to the kids at school that my dad had a talking car and they all laughed and said I was full of crap. How Dare I? I knew what I knew and I knew it was true. The fact that they didn't believe me made the car even more special to me. My Dad must have had the coolest car on earth that nobody else had. My Dad clocked over a hundred thousand miles in that car. Basically in three years from all the weekend trips to visit my mom a couple of hundred miles away how he logged. That many miles is a long story but I spent a large portion of my youth on the weekends driving in that car in the back seat. Speeding we're getting pulled over in. That car wasn't wearing a seatbelt. I I was standing up in the backseat and we got pulled over and you know. Hey Hey dad make sure. I'm sitting down with my seatbelt on at least you know but You know it was a different time. Then road tripping is definitely in my blood I love it and I think a lot of that stems from all the time spent in the backseat of that Daytona. So it definitely holds a soft spot in my heart because I I spent so much time in it. Yeah here's a funny memory a few years after the Daytona was traded in on something something more practical for our weekend road trip so a conversion van that my dad bought I was in second grade and there was a show and tell for the class. Now Mind you. We hadn't had the car for a while at this point and I insisted on bringing a picture of the Dodge Watch Daytona Turbo Z to school in the second grade for show until I just wanted to show off how cool the car was and I had my whole will spiel down. I was GONNA explain why my dad's old car the turbo that we no longer had was cooler than any of the cars. Those dorks could possibly even imagine in. This car was out of the future. It talked for. God's Sakes I had a great case to make and I did just that to about twenty blank stares. No one gave a rip about my story or my dad's car or anything like that. In fact I remember everyone including my teacher. Miss Davis looking at me confused. Everyone else had brought in toys pets little trinkets and knickknacks. And I rot in picture of Mike. Tad's old car. It was that point that I realize it. They were all dumb and I was a car guy. I didn't even know that term existed. Then all I know is that my enthusiasm Suzianne for anything that could be driven started as a young boy and followed me into manhood. I was absolutely obsessed with semi trucks and cars. It's no wonder nearly three decades later. I would not only still be a car guy but that is also be driving a truck for a living. I'm a commercial vehicle driver. I guess it was destiny. There are two other MO- pars that were in my life that had an impact on my youth and the first was in nineteen eighty. Five Chrysler. Lebaron that my grandma who I knew as Nanna drove all the way up to the point that she could no longer drive. We even traveled halfway across the country in that car. I spent a lot of time in that Chrysler as a kid. Next to the Kenilworth I would drive later in life. That Lebaron Barron took me to more places in this country than any other vehicle in my life I was never too fond of it though but I associated. My grandma with that car are so in a way it was very special to me and my dad's still has it. As I grew up in gained more knowledge I realized what at a p O s that Lebron was because it had a two point six Mitsubishi engine in it what a disappointment that was what garbage garbage it was. Here's a funny story. That whole nervous telling it just because I feel like my grandma's listening to this right now and she would turn in over three times in her grave she heard it The only other person that knows this story I think is my friend. That was in the car with me me when this happened but I don't remember which friend it was so I was a borough kid with a minimum wage job at a local independent tire store and my car had broke down so I needed to borrow a car so I told me that I would fill up her car with gas if she let me borrow it and while out and about with this friend of mine I pull up to a stop light in front of my old high school and if I remember the story correctly a- punk in a station wagon pulled up next to us and I looked over and joking with my friend I was like you know whatever ever I said I think it was like. Oh I'm going to run this guy you know just joking around. And when light turned green me and the guy in the other car both left the line in working only described as the complete opposite of what would be considered a hard launch and drag racing. I gave that P. O. S. two point six. Excuse my right foot could give it and that P. O. S. gave nothing back after the slowest drag race in history. I pulled into the gas station and put a few bucks of the cheapest eighty seven octane regular unleaded that I could and then I returned turned it unscathed back to China. They like now that I think about it. Here's a memory. The Lebaron is the first car that I ever actually pumped gas in. When I was a young kid Nanna had actually been the one to teach me how to pump gas and she did it when I was like? Gosh I don't remember how old I was but I was young so good the Job Dad. You let grandma teach your son how to pump gas. Did I say that I returned her car unscathed. That's not entirely entirely accurate. Oddly enough after I borrowed the car it never ran right again and Nanna attributed to me not putting king middle grade fuel in it so she had this theory that she could only put eighty nine octane in this hold Lebaron because that's the only only gas it could run good on and let's be honest. The car never ran good at all but she blamed me for ruining her car. Because I put the bottom of the barrel eighty seven regular unleaded gas in it..

"I'm really excited about what's in store for this show for this year The things we're going to talk about the people are going to talk to WHO and have conversations with this is GonNa be really fun and I'm happy that you're here joining me. Hey let's not waste any time. Let's cut the fat. Let's get right into it. Let's get this show on the road and let's talk a project car in this week's project car was an e Bay find and it just so happens to be one of my favorite cars not just just because I own one but because they're cool a nineteen sixty eight dodge dart so this car is an abandoned racecar project. At least that's what it looks like to me. Maybe the guy just lost interest in it but whatever the case. It's an unfinished project car. And it's set up for drag racing so or at least it's headed in that direction so this is a nineteen sixty eight dodge DART superstock hemi clone. It's got fiberglass front. From fenders two sets doors looks like Dana rear end with four link. Strange Break Strange Axles Manual Steering Column Column The seller says that most of the trim is included with the car. Except it's missing the windshield trim. It's got the sixty eight dark grill. Sixty Dr Tail Lights. It also comes with two pieces of four by sheet metal. My guess is to finish off the interior and all the tin work and it looks like the seller alert is GonNa throw in anything else that he may have forgotten the list with the car. It goes on to say that this car is a race car. Only now it's set at a buy it now. How price of eighty five hundred dollars and you know? Is it a good bye. I'm not quite sure I'd have to see the car in person but based on looks alone. It's pretty much. Just just a shell with a roll cage with hogged out rear wheel wells to fit bigger tires. And it's you know it's got some stuff going for and it's also got some stuff that it really needs addressed like is the cage even up to Nhra specs. You know how was the car built. These are a lot of questions that you need to ask when you go in. Look at these cars these unfinished unfinished racecars. Or if you're considering one I am a fool for these. I love seeing unfinished race cars. Because because I'm like Oh cool all the hard work done in this case there's still a lot of hard work left but if someone wants to get a little bit of a head start on a dart then I and I think it's a it's a good buy for somebody. That's looking for a race car. If you'RE LOOKING FOR MORE OF A streetcar you might WanNa shy away from something like this because it setup for drag racing so if you're gonNA spend eighty five hundred dollars I'm sure you can find a decent driver quality Dr that maybe it has a slant six in it. You know what it's pretty clean and you can always yanked the slant and throw in big block or a small block. Whatever you want you don't always have to get a race car and I think a lot of the time people you know they see st outlaws on TV? And they're like Oh. I got to do that so they go and they buy a race car. You know that hasn't been finished yet. And then they get in way over their head. That's probably what I would do you. You know if I didn't have my projects that I have now and I had some money burning home. My pocket in a car came up like this dart and already had a roll cage in it and it was already doubt if I didn't know any better. I probably would just buy based on cool factor alone but I do know a little bit better so if I ever go and look at a unfinished race car. Then I'm really going to look at the craftsmanship and the quality of the wells and the quality of the work involved in the car because the seller could have just started the project and got got in over his head realized he had changed a bunch of stuff and thought. You know what I'M GONNA cut my losses here. The car is nowhere near done. A have a bunch of money invested so it may may be easier for him just to say you know what screw it. I'm going to sell this car. And then just go by something and start over again. You have to watch for that kind of stuff when you're going and looking at these he's project cars because you never really know who built it you know. That's kind of scary when you're talking about safety equipment like a roll cage in you don't know who built it then then you've got you know. How do they got good welds or do they have experienced building race cars? Do the wells have good penetration. Trey Shen you know last thing you want is to roll a car that has shoddy roll Cajun at first of all you probably went to pass tech inspection. But let's just say you. You wield your way through got on that starting line and you rolled the car and you had a shoddy cage. Guess what not only can a cage save your life they can also kill you so those are things you have to keep in mind when looking at race cars like this or either x race cars or future race cars depending but that still doesn't take away from the fact that this car is cool if you were to go look at it and you're looking at the cage and you're like wow this is actually really well built. Maybe it just wasn't painted then in your saving a couple grand and then you've got the suspension set up and you know anything else all the little extras included with with the car. Like in this case. He's got some fiberglass fenders. Those definitely aren't cheap. When you're looking at project cars you really have to consider it as a whole you know? I'm kind of a fool in the way that I would go look at his car. And just think Oh my God look out coolest racecars everything else is like an afterthought I would hope that if myself or or anybody else is going to hand over. Eighty five hundred dollars on an unfinished project that you at least look it over really well maybe bring a friend. The second set of eyes is never a bad thing. But I really like this dark you know. I would have to see it in person to kind of determine if it's something that I wanted to get into into or if it looks like there's a lot of work that needs to be redone and I might as well start fresh with a much cheaper car a much cheaper Shell and then go oh from. They're not a bad car. I just thought it was cool looking on in the picture. It actually shows an overhead shop crane. It looks like it's You know him. He's hanging by right right in the engine. Bay The DR so a good sales tactic like this could be you but not a bad car. Are I wish the guy luck with the sale. I hope it's set up good in that somebody gets a good start to a race car out of it that that would be really cool because I love Dodge Dart superstock cars and the sixty eight Hemi Dr is also one of my top Mo- parts of all time along with the Barracuda. They're just so cool. Hemi bodies any body with a Hemi as cool in my book so cool Dr Check it out on Ebay. It's not hard to find. Just look up. Nineteen sixty eight dodge DART superstock. And you'll probably run across it so if you're looking for a little fun at the track and a a little fun at the garage I because you're probably going to be building this car for two years before you even get into the track. This might be a good deal. So they'll check it out on Ebay. It's still going to be up for another twenty nine days as it's got fifty two views per hour which is seems Seven people are watching it so it also has the make offer option so on Ebay you can do auctions by now or you can have a buy it now but also a make offer option option which tells me that this guy will take less than eighty five hundred dollars or else he wouldn't even put the make offer button there. So who knows what you could get this thing for. You might be sitting on a potential real cool deal you might go see. This guy will take five and Lo and behold he's like. I really need to get rid of this thing. It's taking up space in my garage. Yes I'll take fifty five hundred and then you eat that extra five hundred and Dan you know you call it a day and you bring your race car home your five thousand dollar Racecar so keep that in mind cool car. That's all I got to say about that. I would love of if my dart was built to look like a superstock but I just feel I would feel like an impostor because mine is a sixty nine and you know looking at the pictures this car. He's including these five relax vendors and they're actually four sixty nine because they have their rectangular marker lights if it's just a race car who cares and.

I hope it's set up good in that somebody gets a good start to a race car out of it that that would be really cool because I love Dodge Dart superstock cars and the sixty eight Hemi Dr is also one of my top Mo- parts of all time along with the Barracuda. They're just so cool. Hemi bodies any body with a Hemi as cool in my book so cool Dr Check it out on Ebay. It's not hard to find. Just look up. Nineteen sixty eight dodge DART superstock. And you'll probably run across it so if you're looking for a little fun at the track and a a little fun at the garage I because you're probably going to be building this car for two years before you even get into the track. This might be a good deal. So they'll check it out on Ebay. It's still going to be up for another twenty nine days as it's got fifty two views per hour which is seems Seven people are watching it so it also has the make offer option so on Ebay you can do auctions by now or you can have a buy it now but also a make offer option option which tells me that this guy will take less than eighty five hundred dollars or else he wouldn't even put the make offer button there. So who knows what you could get this thing for. You might be sitting on a potential real cool deal you might go see. This guy will take five and Lo and behold he's like. I really need to get rid of this thing. It's taking up space in my garage. Yes I'll take fifty five hundred and then you eat that extra five hundred and Dan you know you call it a day and you bring your race car home your five thousand dollar Racecar so keep that in mind cool car. That's all I got to say about that. I would love of if my dart was built to look like a superstock but I just feel I would feel like an impostor because mine is a sixty nine and you know looking at the pictures this car. He's including these five relax vendors and they're actually four sixty nine because they have their rectangular marker lights if it's just a race car who cares and that's that that cool dark.

We talk about the sad news regarding car magazines a rare Hemi challenger and two cars are going to be battling it out for project car of the week yes two cars but there can only be one. Pcot W so today we're GONNA break them down and decide who takes the crown. Then we'll get into listener stories and finally will close the show discussing. The questions are more prices out of control and is rushed the new gold. You're tuned into the best moped enthusiasts driven podcast on planet earth and. I'm your host. Chris Albrecht better her known as the hunter. And this is talking. Mo- pars and you're listening to talking with the car. Hunter your direct match into all things. Ah We are pedal to the metal here on talking mopeds for episode number five. Let's not waste any time. Let's get right into it. Ever since I was a kid. I loved car magazines. I had a collection of them and I still do. I remember being a kid going to the grocery store with my parents and be lining it right for the magazines and sitting there with my dad for the whole grocery shopping trip. We'd be at the magazine Rack just looking through thumbing through magazines was my favorite thing. Usually I would leave there with something. I ended up getting subscriptions to a bunch of my favorites and every month. I was always waiting check in the mailbox to see when that magazine would come in and then I would disappear into my room and read magazines for hours over and over again cover to cover. I loved it and recently car enthusiasts like myself for devastated to find out the ten publishing who basically runs many of my personal favorite car magazines means Probably Yours too is shutting down operations for Nineteen of twenty two of their titles for twenty twenty. That's a huge loss folks. There's only going to be three. Titles that remain and that's motor trend for wheeler and hot Rod. This is crazy so the magazines that are leaving are the list is huge. Like I said. Nineteen of twenty two titles. That's a big big percentage of what's going own bye-bye including two of my favorite magazines Mo par muscle and muscle car review. So this is in my opinion. It's not not good. I understand that there's been a decline in magazine consumption with the digital age. But I just I personally I like like having something tangible in my hand that I can thumb through. I don't necessarily want to read a quote Unquote magazine on my phone. I don't like doing that I never have but I guess I'm GonNa have to change with the Times too because our magazines are dying folks and we're going to have to change with the times we're just going to have to live unhappy so with this podcast. I hope this is another medium that ends up grabbing the attention of a lot of the car enthusiasts that Miss Magazines. I hope that conversation can replace some of that. I know it won't be able to replace it all but I'm hoping that You know as we get to talking to people with these special cars that hopefully that will put life into the stories versus reading them in print. Now I love car magazine. So I'm not talking down on any car magazines There's still some really good ones out there and support them get subscriptions. You know if you WANNA keep those car magazines alive especially our favorite moped car magazines. Get Subscriptions folks and keep reading reading. That's the only way they're going to stay afloat so we have to as enthusiasts we have to support him so if there's magazines out there that you're like a hawk. Gosh I don't want that WanNa go away than get out there and subscribe today. That's that's my advice and embrace the digital age to you know hopefully they keep some of the titles that they're canceling in print. Hopefully they bring them over to digital. And hopefully a lot of those people get to retain their jobs There's a lot of journalists out there that are freaking out right now and I I totally get it if I was them I would really really embraced the digital age. And you know it's hawks. God I always want it when I was a kid. I always wanted my car to magazine is that would be cool. You know but I've never had a car cool enough worthy enough to make it into a magazine and by the time I have a vehicle. That's even worthy enough. There may not even be magazines. The big thing that I see with like social social media is that with facebook and instagram. It's like a car show every day. You know you're seeing magazine. Quality cars getting posted in shared jared all over the Internet so I kind of see where things are going and I. I'll embrace it although I'm not one hundred percent happy about it because like I said I love to thumb through magazines I loved just sitting there and just getting lost in a magazine. I'm a Dork. But there's a lot of dorks out there just like me that love car vaccines and were really really sad by this news. But that's okay you know we're GONNA WE'RE GONNA change with the times and we just have to get used to the digital age folks. It's not going anywhere and it's probably only gonNA get worse I to be honest. I just don't see things surviving the way they are right now. I don't think social media is GONNA survive in its current state for very long. Pretty soon. You're going to be seeing the facebooks in the INSTAGRAM's uh-huh change. I don't know what they're gonNA change into but the way we know them right now. It's not GonNa last so enjoy while it's here. Gosh that kind of went down depressing oppressing road but fear not because automotive content is alive and well and it always will be. It's just a matter of what form it will take. Hopefully podcasts so stick with me folks and just consider this an audio magazine I.

"Daniel Rouse Amazon Jefferson Graham from USA Today Chris Albrecht from the spoon and Ben Fox Ruben of CNN. We get real time reactions from the Amazon product launch in Seattle. Hello OVOID BOT nation. This is your host. Brett Casella and I'm just back from a trip to Seattle for the now annual Amazon product launch event there were more than eighty announcements made during the day up from seventy last year Amazon and its divisions introduced fourteen new products and we saw several from third parties ranging from third reality to Hamilton Beach in my interviews views. We mostly cover the key product demonstrations largely because those are what received the most prominent in the onstage demonstrations after the four interviews. I have a segment in my analysis will conclude this week's episode be sure to share your thoughts and ideas here on twitter and linked in the first of my forecast is Daniel Rouse. He's he's Amazon's vice president of smart home. He's the most senior person from Amazon. We've had on the podcast thus far and giving his portfolio speaks with authority on Amazon's products in on their strategy. I know you're going to appreciate his insights in the first segment next up is Jefferson Graham of USA Today. Jeff is an expert in consumer tech reviews just about everything in offers unique insights and how the announcements from Amazon fit into the larger tech product landscape we Jefferson on last year for the Amazon product demand event and it was really great to give thoughts again after another year of Amazon expansion and the smart home and voice activated space third. Today's lineup is Chris Crispell Brek. He is writer at the spoon. He's the leading publication on food tech. I invited Kris to join the interview today because he's able to offer some unique insights into a few of the announcements from the event such as Amazon's new smart partnership with Food Network in even how echo buds will help you navigate a whole foods market. That was a really interesting demonstration. I have to say closing out. The interviews is Ben Fox. Ruben have seen it. He is seen as Amazon reporter with a long tenure intact attack and business reporting gives an uncommonly deep and broad understanding of Amazon and it was great to get him to weigh in on the recent events around Lexa Echo products addicts and privacy. I will then follow up the interviews with some of my own analysis. The newly announced products and services okay. Let's get started. First off is Daniel route vice president of SMART Home Amazon. ooh Okay breckon seller here. I am at the Amazon Alexa Product launch event. I don't even know if that's the official name. Is there an official name Daniel Jonathan. Is there an official name okay so this is the annual gathering now at the spheres that Amazon rolls out seventy eighty different announcements including new products and updates to products. I and I'm here with Daniel row. She was vice president overseeing all of the smart home initiatives for Amazon Daniel. Thank you for joining me super happy to be here okay so we've had an opportunity to talk a couple of times in the past and I think a lot of things that we talked about. We see a lot more of today so tell me what happened today. It's a continuation of your existing strategy and what happened today. In terms of the announcements that you think of his new I think there were kind of two broad themes as I say at one you saw saw US carrying Alexa along everywhere customers are asking for so you saw announcements about integrations with GM bringing Alexa deeply into another automaker in a great integration you saw Alexa on the dough with a whole set of wearable products that we announced today in our pods in frames in lieu so that's about selects ubiquity you saw US bring Echo studio out which is a great new echo for your home dot with the clock. You know all the traditional ways that you the peculiar announcements I guess if you'll call them that from Amazon here bringing Alexa every corner of the home and beyond that customers are asking for that sort of the first bucket as I associate I think the other bucket and the one that frankly spend most of my day job on is the smart home making it the three things we talked about today we're making it simpler making it smarter overall and making it safer for customers and there we had a whole series of announcements you know the first bucket on simpler. We WanNa make it so that any human can use a smart art home product. You don't have to be a hacker smart programmer. We announced a programme called certified for humans today so that we can make smart more approachable and we had a whole succession of announcements about making Alexa smarter through things like hunches and safer through things like Alexa Guard okay so let's talk about that certified for humans because because that has to do with Alexa connect kit but it's a lot more than that that's right so our notion with the sort of peculiar name is that the only only prerequisite for the smart home should be that your human being so we convene what we called non expert panel basically no. It directors allowed folks that would self admittedly say they're just unfortunate with technology and we basically had them test these products themselves a hundred percent of our panel channel was able to set up the Amazon smart plug with frustration free setup in two minutes the first time so we knew that these products would hit the bar. It's a it's a program over for a dozen criteria that we use to make sure that these products are truly simple and easy to use okay so setup is a big part of that but you explain to me earlier that it goes beyond setup so setups really important but what is it beyond setup. It's important for this certified for humans well. I'll tell you you know you want to make sure that those products stay connected. They're reliable and they don't have Gotcha. So I think a lot of smart home products today you end up thinking they're smart you get them set up through a bunch of arcane processes and a bunch of steps. APPs with your smartphone and then there's some Gotcha you have to pause using your door lock to wait for a software update when you're dumb door lock worked better in that moment when you can just use your hand and so I think those gotcha frustrating for customer so the certified for humans criteria include a ton of reliability requirements requirements like like software updates need to happen in the background when customers aren't using the product so we've got a lot about built into the program knowing that customers care about reliability and no Gotcha okay okay so last year you made a lot of headlines by introducing a microwave and some people thought it was funny. Some people thought it was I guess serious and maybe that you were going to go l. In start trying to kill off the most important categories that sell three Amazon dot com tell me a little bit about the Alexa connects kit and the chip and what you're doing along those lines and what we see with the Amazon oven in the microwave and what the real intention of those is the the the intention with the microwave last year and the Amazon smart of this is of course to build a great consumer product. That's our best selling microwave what we launched last year. It's a four point one star a product. We sophisticated that product by making a foreign one of in this year in the Amazon Smart Evan but of course the real story is having the pervasiveness of Alexa control in the home home for customers that want that and so the Alexa connected is what enables any manufacturer and developer to suddenly become overnight a developer of smart products. They don't have to worry about building cloud services. They simply integrate this chipset in series with their existing microcontrollers so that say fan or a light or anything in your home that uses power can become smart overnight through the integration of this chip. It's truly amazing for developers we when we launched the UK last year we had over a thousand developers expressed interest within weeks and now we're working with hundreds of developers to bring products to market so this year we already have that we've seen launch and there are launching in coming weeks a connected smart. Christmas tree where you can put it into candy cane mode. We've got a slow cooker. We've got an air freshener from procter in gamble. We've got of course our own smart oven and you'll see sort of this whole Conga line of products coming out over the next year from hundreds of developers working with the A. C. K. okay. I think a lot of people don't realize that the Amazon us. I don't remember the name of it but the microwave the Amazon oven don't have have microphones. That's right yeah.

That is his you may want business mind. Then tell me what the guy me not at tone to get a deal done. Sort of another time. There's people coming. Sure. Yeah. And you will find proper stri. Good luck on the day's trade issue, because I can tell you the type of needs to sell star. Right. That's a Jewish name mine isn't, but nice to meet you. Modu for new to the minute. You come in my sight you. David milch welcome back to fresh air. What did you want to do a western? I mean, let's face it. There aren't a lot of successful westerns in the movies or on television anymore. You know, I didn't really have a particular interest in, in the John, but I was interested in certain themes, which originally had hoped to engage in a series about the city cops in Rome at the time of Nero, the they were called the urban cohorts and what I wanted to examine was how forms of order, imposed or discovered in the absence of law, but HBO is doing another show set in room. It's like the old joke about the, the Aston, -tations Jewish family. That goes to Kenya? There could buy mitzvah than they, they have to wait because there's another mitzvah ahead of them. Anyway. They were doing a show about Rome. And So, Chris Albrecht and Carolyn Strauss suggested that I try and find another venue in, which I could engage the same seems. And that's how I came to deadwood deadwood is a lull spot. Would you describe why? There was no law in deadwood, because it was an illegal settlement, it was on land that had been stolen from the Indians, and there was a concern by the thieves either the, the white prospectors that if they pass laws, they would be perceived as setting themselves up as a government, and ultimately, they wanted to be a next to the United States, and they wanted their claims verified by the United States. So, so they agreed that there would be no laws whatsoever. In fact, when murders took place, bodies word disposed of rather. Than buried so that there would be no evidence, so that there could be no trials so that nobody could say that they had set up a government. One of the main characters in dead. Wood is a Montana Marshall who quits his position as marshal and then travels to deadwood in the hopes of starting a hardware business with his partner. So this is an interesting character to, to write about someone who had been a law man. And is now in this place that is totally lacking in law. Yeah. He was a real guy. Seth bullock. Bullock was drawn to the idea of a lawless settlement because his. He had such a radical ambivalence toward the idea of law. He was a guy who was kind of cursed by conscience. And he had a, a predator natural sense of responsibility, and from which he was all part of it was always in flight. And for him the appeal of, of deadwood was, there would be no opportunity to be a martial. There would be no opportunity to generate the kinds of obliga- Sion's, which would distract him from the pursuit of his private goals. And of course, as, as alcoholics find out, you always take your problems with you. And, and he took his and sure enough within four months, he was he was Marshall again. One of the characters in dead. Wood is calamity Jane. I think when we think, of clarity Jane, we think of Doris day who played her in the movies, we think of a character whose rambunctious, how would you describe your version of clarity? Jane. What is it based on a well, it's based on fact calamity Jane was. A profane. Terribly conflicted personality who idolized Hitchcock, who was kind to her and sort of resolutely, refused to acknowledge her hickok. This is her having kind of renounced her femininity clammy. Jane was always getting thrown out of towns, because she was too obscene even for the miners. She had the foulest mouths of all, and she, she was. A victim of protracted abuse as a child and had kind of renounced her feminine identity, I think is as a form of self protection, and she always prided herself that she could out, drink anybody, she could outwear, anybody. And, and. Yet with Hitchcock. She was. Oftentimes, very demure, and I would hope if the series accomplishes, nothing else, it will expunge the association of doors day with Clinton, he Jane and sport. So what, what was wild Bill, hickok doing in, in deadwood? He was kinda looking to die. Hickok for me as a research. The subject was the, the first victim is I perceived it in America of, of media celebrity, and what we do to our heroes. Shortly before going to deadwood he had actually had a warrant issued against him for Bates in, in Cheyenne. And he had married a circus performer, who wanted to take care of them. And within a couple of days, he, he booked he left down and told her he would make their fortune once and for all in deadwood, but he never prospect it from an he was drunk and, and playing cards, his whole time out there and really tragic figure, and with a certain amount of self awareness which kind of heightened, the pay us, I think of a situation David milch, speaking to Terry gross in two thousand four more after a break.

"I just watched all of the deadwood series to prepare for this review and it stands up even more obviously ingloriously as one of the best TV dramas ever produced. And with this new H, B, O movie, deadwood goes out, just as brilliantly as it came in. Terry gross interview, David milch in two thousand four the year. Deadwood premiered on HBO. They started with a clip from the series premiere when Seth Bullock and his hardware business partner Sol star played by Timothy elephant, and John Hawkes interacted with the town's very prominent saloon in property owner. Al swear engine played by Ian McShane. They want to rent a vacant lot on which to build their hardware store, but the super strong personalities of Bullock and swearing clash almost immediately.

"Remember, oh, I I tried to catch a rising star when I was in anti with my friend who was a singer. And we've got a number and we were on at two AM. And we did a singing thing that didn't work at all who guy in charge of those numbers. Then mark. Yeah. Something I remember Mark who who was very hung over all the time. Right. Remember his name right name. Finally, I get into the impr-. Prov, and we got three minutes three minutes. And I think I have three minutes and material and Chris Albrecht passed me and said, I could hang out. So all was a manager. And I think he was the manager bartender or anyone he went onto become now, he's the head of ethics or no are ahead of HBO. Now, he's the head of starts. Right. He was very supportive of me. And he was the manager and. He passed me and said, I could hang out here had potential. So I would watch the people every night and say why is this funny tonight and to get the most out of? There was a comedian called Ronnie shakes or the away. I love Donny shake so much, and he had very structured jokes. And they were easier for me to figure out. Here's a great comic that guy. He wasn't the Tim. I still quote, his jokes all the time. There was another very funny comedian called John develops to. Yeah. Who became a comedy writer, and I liked his his jokes, and I could take different things. But the most important thing I just thought the first time I got up on stage. I was funny between jokes right on purpose. No. I was as a reaction as a reaction to them not laughing to what I had said. And I was funny about it. I said why didn't you laugh at that? I thought that was so funny. Yeah. And I said, well, let me try this one. And see if you laugh at this, very, honest, then. Yeah. Well, that was my I like to be honest. So I guess that's why Chris thought it was funny. It wasn't because I was writing anything at that point. Right. But I could just see just understand. Why why why what how is this not working? This is supposed to be so good. And I had it in my head, and it's not doing well that's better doing that than like just falling into yourself. And know, my first heckler said, why didn't you get a job or something? And I said, well, I don't even have a response to that. Because I'm so new with this. So come back later another time, and maybe I can answer with something very very witty of it too. It was good. Yeah. But anyway, so then I get and then there's another comedian female comedian called Carol Siskind herald, who's very funny comedian, she still running I'll think she'll stand up anymore. Well, she was she was still very good friends with silver. Yeah. And I just could not get on at the improv and silver. Just hated me. And she came over to me once and said, I can't put you on anymore because of your voice, and I said what she's wanting to talk. I said what do you mean? She said, you're you have a bad comedy voice. And unless you go take voice lessons, and you can't. So I said, well, the only problem I have. Over is people are laughing because I was getting better and people are laughing. What I was because I'd also went to all the the places where they had microphones. And they were restaurants are open mics everyone. So one night Bill Maher's there, and he said, you know, you're really funny and silver is really being mean to you come over to catch a rising star. And I will put you on this is like eighty two. Yeah. Yeah. So Bill was the first one he still says, I was loaded. So he he let me on catch a rising star. And then I stopped going to the improv because I couldn't take the abuse anymore. Yeah. I mean silver was rough. Because when I started in when I was in New York in the late eighties sort of the last days of that place, and she was still pretty tough. I mean, she liked me. But you never knew what you're gonna get. She didn't like me a little bit. It's funny about Bill Maher because Bill Maher's is with comics is pretty loyal and a good audience. So I give oh he's such a good laugh..

So but not friend day today is not prime day, but it's pretty sweet, I think. So here's why I'm excited Kevin is rightly excited about the price, but I'm excited because it's going to have what's called the cooking in time controllers with Madame. So consumers will be able to speak directly to her without using GE's appliances skill. So this is basically native support for cooking in time controllers that Amazon has now added. So you no longer have to say Madam a ask Geneva to start the microwave. You can just say Madam as start the microwave. So this is huge. Cree it signals one, the creation of a new type of native skill for Madame into is signals that GE recognizes that asking Geneva for stuff is sucky. Well, now I wonder, I wonder how many other partnerships will come about. Once people start enjoying the fact that they don't have to name the skill in their command will. So that's what I'm like. It will this be exclusive to GE 'cause that's an interesting revenue opportunity for Amazon or does this just become everyone else can use it? So that's question. Number one in survey number two is that delta faucet is working on an Amazon integration for faucets, which means you'd have native support for turning your water faucet on. We talked about that last week with our guest. So I have a lot of hope in my heart that Amazon is trying so hard to become this standards layer for smart home and the smart kitchen. Yeah, indeed. I mean, if they can come up with standards that will eventually, let's say, have met him a work with all Madam. Abled voice services not have skill for it at all. Just have a API layer that will work with different brands and so on behind the scenes that could be big. So not only is the microwave cool, but how you talk to it is worth noting as well. Speaking of the echo, Kevin, do you want to upgrade your echo? I do not. However, that is a question. We commonly hear from friends, colleagues and countrymen and women around the world, and I feel like we should give special shout out to our free. Should he's in your backyard there because he's in Washington state are bothering the crow right now? Yeah, probably Mr Chris Albrecht who has we worked with him in the past to kick home, and I know he's doing some podcasting workless days as well. It hasn't been for a while, but every once in a while, Mr. Albrecht with ping us and say, Kevin, Stacey, should I get a new echo is a time to upgrade my echo. Is there a new echo coming out? Should I can echo now? How about now? So yes, a making fun of Chris, but it's actually. Valid question and RAI Krista over at seen. It poses that question in an article that we both looked at before the show. I don't know. I mean, rhyme makes some good points. I mean, you have to understand if you're going to buy a new echo, then you are committing further to being in the Amazon ecosystem, and that's fine. That's totally okay. It's good ecosystem right now without a doubt. You and I are both happy and it as are many other people. However, I like flexibility and I'm glad ri- pointed this out. That's why I was kinda hot on the Sonos one because it came with Madame a out of the box, but is also getting Google assistant at some point this year. That's the plan. It did recently get airplay to as well for controlling music through your Iowa surveys by voice with Siri, but so I'm not interested in upgrading my echo. I still have an original one and many dots, and I'm fine, but them I don't see the need. Even the new one with the hub is just lacking some radios for me. So again, no, thank you. Yes. And now would you recommend they buy the Sonos? One is oppose. To the echo if you have nothing, if you have nothing. I would say yes, because you're not locked in to one platform. If you wanna be on the Madame as Amazon platform, you can do that today. If you decide I might get some things that might work better with Ghulam products than that gives you an out..
