"And then I'd buy organic spouting seeds that have been tested for pathogens and tested for high germination rate and start small finish big. Lake you will get results vary very quickly. Mean you take the seeds you soak them. Five hours, eight hours overnight, then you rinse them and then they just start to grow these seeds. WanNa grow like nature's design them to grow not. Can. Grow a garden. but everyone can grow sprouts and I think Dan that's a good segue for us to you know to transition out. But everyone can grow sprouts My book is out there. You don't have to buy the book. You know there's a ton of information out there in a whether it's on social media or on Youtube or the Internet. There's tons of research papers out there sprouts have been around since the beginning of time my message, my goal my mission is to have people think about how they can incorporate sprouts into their diet into their life. That's apple. That's how. I love that man and I I think what? I also love to his something that. Always been used in the the use of seats so. You reference actually what do you have sitting your free right now? Right now, I. Have a watermelon that like I'm my mouth is watering over 'cause I've been intermittent fasting. So I've had his water today and now it's two o'clock in the afternoon. I'm getting ready to eat some watermelon, but I have another meeting starting. So I won't even be able to eat the watermelon until after this other meeting kicks off Oh. My bad we do. We have another ten minutes executive Tom Would you WanNa do you WanNa get his amounts carly understand I got a skip the watermelon but I got I got people literally at the gate the I've got to different people's waiting at two different gates. But let's have a nice transition out but I think Let's do our best in start to wind down gracefully. So we don't have a hard edge. Or is met. All Cave in Austin easy but from new book with fact, it's the use of Alexa one on stage and things like that always interested in. I'm looking to get you to answer any of those questions of whether we can sprout sates. I'M GONNA. Let that be it'll be. City You'll be out of find renteria sources on the show nights, but ultimately, Doug Evans at instagram. That's what you find a an opening of A. On spats so Doug May. It's been a pleasure having he said I I know it's the Many. Look forward to coming on visiting you insane firsthand having the team.

Know every day we got a lot of things you know sprouting and I can't wait to also show you. We're doing a raised bed raised Straw. Bale. Organic garden you know under Jude so we can have some mature vegetables as well because I want to actually see about taking my seed. Into sprouts into micro Greens into mature vegetables into flowering and then producing more seeds. So I really WANNA go full circle. So soaked about doing that this'll be our first year of doing that is well. Oh man that's all. True love all up from service. It's been a pleasure to have you today.

"Your organic avenue days and was certainly. There throughout the whole juice, Arrow adventure of the first time that you came on the podcast actually for people that are newer to the show like. I went to the Juicero had in San Francisco. Well first of all. It's you invited me out to the facility in Los. Angeles this gigantic place that you were just building out. And then I went and visited you in San Francisco I was in the offices the evening. Just prior to you announcing publicly what you were doing and there was gonna be this New York Times article coming out, and you had board members there, and there was a lot of excitement and activity, and we carved out an hour and a half in your office to bang out a podcast. And, then you, Sarah was burst into the world, and you went on this crazy rollercoaster ride of an adventure with some pretty high highs, and some pretty low lows. I've talked about this with other people on the podcast sense but. I love you. Doug and I always. Believed in you and I still believe in you and I think that there's a lot of. Misunderstanding about what went down and I wanted to. Provide you with the opportunity to talk a little bit about that experience, because when people think juice zero. There's a certain association that comes with that but that's not like most things. That's not really the full story. Yeah, so. One of the things that we live in a society where everyone. Is focused on money? And so for me when I came up with the Vision for juice, Sarah, which was hardware, software, sustainable, packaging, fresh, supply, chain, farm, fresh, produce, nutrition, protocol and having an integrated solution. I did that because I wanted people to have accessibility to more servings of fruits and vegetables, so US dietary guidelines said. Seven to thirteen servings of fruits and vegetables a day, the average American was consuming less than one and I knew that people who bought a home juicer. Where you were using it once or twice a month, but people who are using an espresso machine. We're using it once or twice a day and so having spent ten years of my life making juice I knew a lot about how to make juice, and I used a dozens of different juicers so I put my. Head around! Could I make juicer that was fresh juice, which everything that was in a bottle wasn't fresh, and I didn't believe the HP and the pasteurization part hot pasteurization called passthrough pasteurization wasn't fresh and being like who I am energetically I wouldn't drink those juices so I wanted my design criteria was. How do you ever fresh juice on demand in in two minutes, so I built a prototype with a? Welder that was doing kitchen equipment on the corner of on the corner of bowery and canal in Chinatown. Okay where they could barely communicate with them, and they built me a first prototype. Or one of the first prototypes which was. Literally A. Hot Water bottle that we were inflating with an airbrush compressor to push to cutting boards together to create the force, because you need a lot of force to extract juice, and if you were to go to any cold press juice shop in the United States, maybe around the world I haven't been around the world to see them the way you make cold press juice. was you take produce you dice, it slice it chop. It shredded to create like a slurry. Chunks in it, but you have to open up the sally the walls and if you watch the medical medium telling you, how do you make celery juice without a juicer? He tells you to blend it and then put in cheesecloth and wring it out to make your juice. so that's just how juice was made. The insight was if you took the produce you put it in the bag, and then you put it in another bag. Then you put in the machine, you could press without making a mess. And so to do all that was a big deal, so I made prototype after prototype, and then we realized that this was much harder to do. Than we thought than than we thought like there are so many pinch points that someone could get hurt on in the machine like if you know you have all this force, so we had to design the machine. So there's no pain points and the original machines was like the size of a television by goes just big, and that wasn't a consumer product, so we just had to design it smaller and small so fast forward the the reason why people funded the business because it really was. The freshest most delicious juice that you could have. It really took two minutes. And it really worked, but in order to make that magic, you needed to have a fresh produce supply chain. You needed to make the packaging you needed to do. The distribution you needed like I didn't want a Wi. Fi connected machine. That wasn't my vision. I didn't come from I'm not a millennial I didn't want that, but in nineteen, ninety seven, when Walla had people die from drinking raw juice, I didn't want to risk anyone ever getting sick from having a raw product, so the the overhead that we have to put around protecting someone from consuming. Consuming because we live I don't know when the last time you had milk in your house for me. It's been years, but no one believes expiration dates, so people would go. They do the sniff test. And then if it would sour, they'd throw it out and if it wasn't. But how can you determine if produce was fresh? When it was in a sealed packaging that was opaque, because the produce was sensitive to light, and you put it in the refrigerator, there's no difference between the fresh pack and the old. The Wi fi enabled aspect of it. Setting aside the bells, and whistles of the like wired household, or whatever was simply to be a check on. The produce to make sure that it was fresh, right? It was a it was a way of like sort of blockchain in the supply chain to make sure that you know. And if it if it wasn't fresh, the thing wouldn't wouldn't product, but the thing is. Here's the thing so the narrative that got spun is here's a guy. He comes in Silicon Valley. He rates. He raises an ungodly amount of money from some very important people that he apparently hood winks into this vision of creating a juice machine, which is seven hundred dollars, and then you've got to subscribe and get these packs, and they're like I don't know. What do they five seven dollars a piece This is like the minute in Silicon Valley being checked out from. You know what? Is Truly at and what people really need. And and it became this symbol of excess and so much that people were cheering for its demise, and it became this like mean right like where the shod Freud was essentially unparalleled, and all of that got. Directed at you being being the brainchild of all of this, and it began I I would say and we've had many conversations about this but I would say that it began. With the publication of that New York Times article that came out the morning after we had our first podcast that spun you in a certain light, and you and the team at Ucla. were never able to gain control of the narrative, and that narrative that began with the New, York Times story, just spiral out of Control and began to build.

"Or or add some sort of fertilizers to it because it will expand its life so the reason why Broccoli seeds have fifty to one hundred times the amount of the precursor to sulphur fain. is because as the Broccoli gets bigger. You're not getting any more so far fain. The. You're just getting more Broccoli. But you're not getting more of the SULFUROPHANE, so in the efficient stage, the fledgling stage of the seed, so you actually if you were just looking for sulphur fame, you could grind those broccoli seeds up. Chew them grind them because you WANNA. Grind him. Chew him to mix the Glue Carafe in with the. As the the enzyme that activates them, so they're almost imagine they're in like separate little pockets inside and when you mix them together. That's when the mechanism. Activates it and the. Famed compound. Is created with like it's a science project all happening in nature to protect the seed and to protect the plant. I keep hearing about sulphur vein, all of a sudden like I hadn't really heard much about that and I just did a podcast with Dr Wool. Bolsa sweats and he just goes on and on about sulfurophane. So why is that such an important nutrient I think and it's interesting I, just read. A doctor Dr Bro. You'll just read the book phenomenal. And I also just interviewed. Dr Jedd, Fahey who was the professor at Johns Hopkins University, who twenty plus years ago went on a search at defined which vegetable or which Broccoli? Had the most sulfurophane and so. So for Feign or the precursor? DELUCA Raffin exists in all cruciferous vegetables, so cal Bok Choy Cauliflower. Broccoli Even Wa- Sabi fits into this. cruciferous vegetables family so the mechanism of sulphur. Fain was just proven to be able to cause a biological reaction in the body that you know they call it anticancer cancer cure, but in the case of ast autism. From disorder disorder in that case, the sulphur fain kind of creates the heat shock proteins, so it's simulating what's happening? You know with the heat and causing the body to to shift so all of the research. The why people are the moon with this is there's probably fifteen hundred research papers produced in the last twelve months on the. Powerful potent factors, so there's money behind so for. There's money behind the testing. They're doing all sorts of testing and getting very positive results that although there's there's no cure for autism, the most effective treatment and this is like National Institute of Health Peer Reviewed. Papers are the benefits of. Treating. With sulfur, Fain and so they're trying to figure out. Like Sofer, fain supplements very expensive sixty dollars for a bottle with thirty capsules. The efficacy of that is super low right. That's something I. talked about with Dr Be as well well. I don't even know about the efficacy versus the financial inaccessibility, versus just buying the the Broccoli seeds, soaking them and getting your own sprouts, and so the cancer. Research is the the mechanism that. Prevents the survival mechanism for the plant. Somehow in nature. This was designed to ward off pests. And so that reaction ends up having the positive effect on the cell on a cellular level and within the stomach, and you've you've had more experts on the microbiome, and the God so imagine you're feeding your yourself. This fresh raw living, super, concentrated, nutritious fiber rich. A plant that has compounds in molecules that have now been tested right. It's not subjective anymore. There's been enough testing to talk about the impact of these on this whole slew. Of very serious health issues, but the kicker to bring it back to sprouts, and not to bury the lead here is. If you look at the Kingdom of cruciferous vegetables in the foods that are rife in in Sulfurophane, like Broccoli is, if I'm not mistaken, if not at the top close to the top, but comparison between Broccoli, and Broccoli sprouts is like a non-starter right like the sprouts something like ten times the amount fifty fifty fifty dollars, wow! Yeah and for pennies. You can be eating this stuff I mean it's such a no brainer. I mean literally there's The you can get the cowards, so let's just talk about lentils for a second I'm just shifting from Broccoli and so I to lentils. If you take a cup of lentils. And sprout them. You get two cups of lentils right because they're growing right. They're absorbing the water. They're increasing the fiber. They're growing a Taylor growing by you. If you were to compare one cup of spouted lentils versus one cup of cooked lentils, and I'm all for it. Lentils of all sides so I'm not judging I'm just stating the facts. When you spout the lentils, you double the antioxidant levels. you triple the vitamin C.? So like why wouldn't you just take water? And then you could still season them. Anyway you want, but you're getting this food. That has a wife force right that. Modern Science isn't measuring. Ways in the significance, but you can feel like I had an an interview with Joe descente from Spartan Yeah. I know Joe so Joe. was like living under a rock like did was not sprouting, and now on his compound, wherever he is in Pennsylvania like east sprouting sprout. Rowdy sending me pictures. You know I registered the domain. Sprout ten after Spartan Oh. You did. That's funny. Yeah, because he was so kind of into like the the sprout. Yeah, he's a closet hippy to that guy when you get them talking. I think he grew up. If I'm not mistaken, I think he had a vegetarian mom grew up on a farm and he's been you know he eats I. Don't know if he would call himself. Plant based Vegan but his diet is much more plant-based than I. Think People in the kind of Spartan race community might might understand but one of the things that I love about. This whole sprouting conversation is that it's not contingent upon any kind of Diet Dogma like you said earlier like whether you're Paleo. Kito, local local whatever it's like. This is just being healthy. No matter where you're at like. This is a good idea to build into your routine well I, being plant based and being passionate about plant based. I would invariably. Be. People would just assume that I was like a violent Vegan right and confrontational, and it just got boring in. Answering the questions, where do you get your protein from? And this and I like this and I just decided not to go there like I wanted sprouts to be for everybody. If it's once-proud, your died or ten percent of your spouse, your diet or like judy move adding sprouts to every meal like this was something that was accessible and if we think about. In these under served communities where? Dean. Orangish in the book had mentioned that he was a consultant to McDonald's and when they put. McDonald's put salads on the menu. Boost. Five ninety nine for die minimus amount of calories. Yeah, right iceberg lettuce. But..

"Soil or trays. That allowed the routes to go down. And they're they're beautiful as garnish and they're they're actually can be a food source. The Ding is they take longer to actually develop so to grow micro. Green can be two to three times longer than the scout in so I focused on the sprouting. Because I'm using the spouts as a food source whereas the the micro Greens are in my kind of you or bless yield more flavor more culinary specialty but not able to get as much food source in the per square inch of the kitchen on in the time period that that I have to eat got it. Okay that makes sense I flagged. This episode has flown by. I love like I said I love this topic. I think it's super timely. Right now and I think that you have an amazing resource for people for getting started talk little bit about your book and where people can find it so during this time of living in the desert and during this time of home sheltering spouts became really important for me in so that the book is probably the worst time to launch a book but the best time to launch a book about sprouts so I just literally it airs. Today I did a podcast with Marianne Williamson discussing poverty starvation food equality and how spouts could be a remedy for that and the the the when I wrote the book it was how wide spout how to sprout what to sprout specifics about individual sprouts and then for the do it yourself recipes of how to use the sprouts as part of a Neil where the recipes are all one hundred percent plant based all raw and fifty percent containing sprouts. So that's the book and then the book also had interviews with other medical professionals and Dietitians from Dean Orangish and Dr Joel Firm and wrote the Foreword and I'm Dr Joel Con to Functional Medicine. Doctors more common and Kito Janik doctors like Dr Josh Jackson. Jomar Khola said a wide range of people including yourself that I interviewed for the book. So that's really. The book is is jammed packed and the book is available. You know I was going to self publish. Because I don't like bureaucracy but I ended up going to New York and taking a flyer and pitching one publisher. Saint Martin's press because I wanted the book deb. Maxim distribution so literally go to the SPOUT Book Dot Com? Listen everywhere where it sold from Barnes and Noble Amazon and books a million two PAO walls. So it's all it's all over. The kindle version is pretty good I like the trade paperback. We made a specific decision not to put pictures in the book to keep the costs down and make it very accessible and times like this. Amazon shipping the book. I'm fairly quickly. And it just launched awesome and of course that link will be in the show notes at Wellness Mama Dot. Fm for any of you who are Hopefully outside exercising or you're driving You can always find the show notes. They are find all the links we've talked about including two blog posts on a lot of these topics. Another question I love to ask at. The very end is other than your own. Is there a book or a number of books that have really dramatically impacted your life? So what are they in? Why so probably the book that had the most impact for me was probably Scott Textbook? Road less traveled and there was a quote in there that I always think of and I share in particular with young people as well as troubled. People all is that life is difficult and this is a great truth one of the greatest truths and it is a great truth because once we truly see this truth we transcend it once. We truly know that life is difficult. Once we truly understand and accepted then life is no longer difficult is once accepted the fact that life is difficult no longer matters and at resonated with May that for some reason I thought everything should be easy and when I realized like. Oh if you want to do something. It's going to take work if you do it. Well it's GonNa take more work and if you WANNA learn something you'd never learned before All these things can be difficult so I've accepted in my life challenges that are against all odds and it why I ranch now with twenty five acres in hot springs and I've never lived in a house before I've never own land before I've never managed engineer before and water fluid systems in growing. Just it is difficult to to kind of move off of the water grid and off of the food grade but because it's difficult and I have that in the back of my mind. It doesn't matter this is just Part of living that you know and I'm not a parent your apparent so I can't speak to that but I can imagine I look into trying to walk a day in your shoes with your or six kids and running a business and doing podcasts. Like to me because I'm not doing it I think like. Wow that's difficult really difficult. So that's probably a book that had the most impact on me. God I love that and I'll link that in the show notes as well but Doug. I appreciate you giving practical advice. I think this is like I said at the beginning of a very timely topic right now and one that I hope will stuck even after we are able to start returning to life as it was before. I think this is a great change that many of us can implement so I appreciate your mission to educate and to about this and all that you know in the world will thank you so much and likewise I. I hope that I can be a reflection of the goodness that you have and the genius that you have Katie. So thank you and thank you for having me. Thank you as always thanks to all of you for joining us today. And for sharing one of your most valuable assets your time. Where both very grateful that you did my hope that you will join me again from the next episode Wellness Mama. I guess if you're enjoying these interviews would you please take two minutes to leave a rating or review on itunes for me. Doing this helps more. He pulled to find the podcast which means even more moms and families can benefit from the information. I really appreciate your time and thanks always for listening..

"Being used to trade not to cure autism. Because it's creating the same heat shock which I'm results. When someone who has autism has fever they have less symptoms of the autism without getting the fever. The Broccoli sprouts. Allah sulfurophane is able to create that same. A bio chemical reaction in the body and with treating the chemo protective properties are very powerful so without doing a full discussion on antioxidants and how that how they work the recommended kind of treatment and there was probably to over one. Hundred Fifty documented research studies in twenty nineteen on the use of Broccoli sprouts Broccoli sprout extract and the Mirage. As and the glue. Carafe forming this I fain in in healing and people have attempted to patent these things and the supplements are very expensive if you buy so for fain supplement but the reality is you can literally grow them for pennies a serving and eat maybe an ounce or two ounces to start gaining that benefit of this unique compound from it if we just shift over to a little bit more mainstream nutrition. Broccoli sprouts one cup of Broccoli sprouts which is a few ounces of Broccoli sprouts also contain about sixty percent of the recommended daily allowance of Vitamin C. So they have in these little sprouts. They've got vitamin C. They've got antioxidants. They've got this suffer pain they have chlorophyll. They have soluble and insoluble. Fiber have small amounts of protein. And all these things existing in a seed that you as the Mama can nurture into development of this food and it is been documented that all the Christopher's family has so far vein. Broccoli sprouts can have twenty to fifty and I've heard is even as high as a hundred times more of this Fain of the mature Broccoli. The instable that's really drastic and part of my own personal process. I'm GONNA try Freezing more because that's a great idea. But I grow these. All the time can have in rotation on my counter and all make a smoothie out of Broccoli sprouts and like you said breaking up. The Broccoli sprouts can increase the sulfurophane availability. As can from what I've read and you can verify the heat So we know that cold can but it seems to be right about one hundred and fifty degrees that there can increase that activity so all. Soak the sprouts in water at that temperature and then make it into a smoothie and add a little bit of mustard powder and drink it immediately. I'm curious if there's anything about that process that you would change to make it even more available. I think that mustard seeds can also be sprouted. And Are you buying mustard powder or are you using fresh mustard seeds? I'm actually usually using mustard teeth that grind up in the the blender as well but I have read that they can increase a slow four fame because they also contain Rossi's so so this is a secret that I'm happy to share and this is something I learned after I wrote the book the most amount of sulfur fain is in the seat itself and as the seed grows and it sprouts and it goes into mature vegetable the so for pain or Athenian does content does not increase. It stays finite so the most concentrated amount of the sopher fain is in the seat itself so my secret That that I do is I use a coffee grinder and I take mustard seeds and broccoli seeds and I grind them into a powder and then you sprinkle that dust into anything if you're looking for a high dose and then and the the most important part on consuming this food is you can't inhale it like you literally need to stay like to me. My process is I will stay at it and think about those seeds and the sopher faint and the Broccoli and the nature and nick healing properties. So that I. It's like Pavlov's stock. I want to be salivating and bringing up the digestive fluids an activating my body for the process of intaking. This so literally the first step for me. It's a very meditative. Surreal serene process of using my eyes to prepare for the consumption. So That's phase one phase two is I will then take this and literally even it may be in liquid form or blended form. I will chew that to mix this potent formula with my saliva and by mixing with my saliva. I'm sending keys to the brain clues and cues to the brain richer than activating the digestive fluids in the stomach to begin the processing for the absorption. And then the next stage is swallowing. It's still slowly and doing this in a ritualistic fashion on a relatively empty stomach preferably an empty stomach. So there's enough within the smoothie an I'll add a black pepper I'll add a tomb rick. I'm I'll add other more mature vegetables. The research is actually saying so that you get the most benefit when you're combining Broccoli sprouts and mature Broccoli in a smoothie and so really Having this smoothie and letting it sit leading IT digest letting the body absorb it because otherwise it could be like eating corn where it's going in and out without a lot of assimilation and bioavailability absolutely agree and I think that's great advice for anything we eat truly is to chew it more to be more present and to eat slowly. I think that alone could make a big difference for a lot of people in digestion knowing what we know about digestion beginning in the mouth and the enzymes necessary for the entire process and how we can optimize that just by being more conscious. When we're chewing I think that's really really good advice. And Yeah I love all the points that you mentioned about so far and I think we could probably talk all day just about Broccoli sprouts and so forth and detoxification and how there are studies. I mean it's truly incredible. This is one of those things that I always encourage people to do. Because it's so inexpensive and we've got study showing that it's good for the brain. It's good for fighting cancer. It's good for your heart. It increases Glutathione as it's an R F. Two activator people use this for weight loss. They think there's positive effects for anti-aging boosts liver function reduces inflammation. It's I think as far as I don't think there are any silver bullets but I think in general this is one that is almost universally beneficial for people and I know I was first Introduced to it by my doctor. When I got diagnosed with Hashi motos I had on my thyroid and his advice to start eating Broccoli sprouts every day along with some other dietary interventions and Supplements in some even at the time pharmaceuticals of course but he explained that because of the compounds in Broccoli sprouts they actually show some anti nausea anti tumor anti inflammatory activity so people who are struggling with any kind of inflammatory disease like an autoimmune disease. It can be really helpful. And I noticed that I really felt better. The more and more I did that and now like I said it's a regular part of my life. What are some of the other favorites proud that you always have going in your kitchen? Oh I love sunflower sprouts and sunflower sprouts. Which are also a quasi micro green and Mike. We could talk about that in a in a moment but migraines are relatively new category you know just a few decades old but the sun flower sprouts. I love and I used as an alternative to lettuce is in my salads. So they're hardy and they're they're rich and so I I love them. I recently started to like leak sprouts. Because they have this really spicy kind of kick to them. Which can add life to a lot of things that I wasn't prior exposed to also As a someone who's planned base people always ask. Where do I get my omega? Threes from dry take a supplement and my experience with supplementing Vitamin Omega. Threes has not been very good because I think the vitamin the Omega Threes. Get rancid whether you're doing an algae supplement or a fish oil which I've never done and I I don't have any plants do it. But the the plant based Omega threes also leave a after taste in my mouth or if I burp after or they'll make me BURP. It's gross and so I was really getting into Chia and making cheer pudding and eating Chia seeds and about a year and a half ago I started to sprout. Chia.

"I'm here with Doug Evans. Who was an early pioneer in the health food movement? He lost his mother to cancer and his father to heart disease and he watched other family members suffer through various health problems and invested in and Co founded several companies with the goal of helping improve future of health in our country. He was the inventor and founder of Sarah which was cold press juicing system for use at home and he also is really passionate involved about sprouting and has written a book called the Sprout Book and he lives off the water grid and the food grid on his land with private hot springs. Just east of Joshua Tree California and Sprouting is a big part of his life. He does it to be a wide degree but today he shares his expertise in what he's learned in ways that we can all implement this even if we have small kitchens or even truly no kitchen or no backyard. How we can all start to grow some of our own food very practical and very timely episode and. I think you will get a lot out of it so without further ado here we go doug welcome. Thanks for being here today. Thank you so much for having me. Katie it's a real pleasure and honor and I'm so excited I was thinking about this literally all night. Thank you. I'm excited to have you here. I think this is a really timely topic and an excellent one for MOMS. Because it's so practical and so- beneficial and to start broad. Actually I love to always start with a story. So we're GONNA go deep on sprouting today. Which is something that I do at my house and I love and that you are An expert in but I always love to hear the story of. How did you get into this world in the first place I I had a really challenging upbringing and I think we all do so. I won't go too much on that but I got into a lot of trouble. All my friends are on drugs and going to jail and really serious problems and I escaped that world into another world by leaping and joining the army so as a paratrooper in US army and that was more insane than my home life and then from the army. I got into graphic design and computer graphics and my wife is gone. I would say fairly well. I was in a relationship. I was making money. I enjoyed my work. I didn't really have the connection of meaning in purpose that I do today but I felt that I was doing good work. And it was bring out the best of me. And then my aunt got diabetes and they chopped off both of her feet below her ankles. And then my uncle got heart disease and then my mom got stomach cancer then. My father died from complications. Related to heart disease and then my brother had the first of three strokes and then a heart attack and diabetes. And I thought my entire life was genetically cursed and that I needed to really started. Get my affairs in order that I just wasn't going to live and I was thirty six pounds heavier and just not having. I'm the best time ever and that was kind of my wakeup call that I needed to explore changes in my life and I met someone who was a Vegan and I'd never heard of the term begin before and she kind of enlightened me to the fact that there was a definitive connection beyond correlated between lifestyle and chronic illness. And that was so hard for me to believe almost as if was the world round or flat right and it was so hard for me to comprehend once. I made that that connection and that was twenty one years ago. I never looked back. Yeah it seems crazy a little bit to think of now for me when it being where I am now but I remember that in my journey as well Probably close to fifteen years ago now The first time I started realizing there was more to food than just calories and that it wasn't just a matter of how much we ate but the the food quality really mattered so much and it was. It's been a long journey from me of learning what works best for my body and choosing the most nutrient dense foods and part of that process for me has been shifting. My focus from kind of high school college mentality about food just being calories that were tied to your weight to food being chemistry nutrition and vitamins and nutrients and a message that you sent your body so rather than just looking at the amount that we eat looking at the micronutrients and the density and what makes food really good for the body and approaching that from a perspective of nourishing the body versus ever depriving the body. And that's one of the reasons. I like sprouts so much because they are on the spectrum and incredibly nutrient dense food and also an incredibly easy to grow and acquire food if you know what you're doing Which I think is increasingly important topic right now with everything that we have going on in the world so to start broad. I would love for you to kind of define low. What are sprouts? Anyone who may not be familiar. And what are the different types routes? Sure well sprouts are the result of seeds coming to life so there would be no life or plant life on the planet if there were not sprouts and so if we go back to the seed all plant life begins with a seed which is a complete living plant organism. So that's a seed and they're staying in this dormant state literally waiting for the opportunity to burst into life also known as Germination and my insight was that even though I had been spouting for over twenty five years and spouting lot for twenty one years. I never made the connection. That sprouts could be a meaningful food source as opposed to a garnish. So the this the seeds themselves were and sprouts were popular in certain cuisines like Mung beans in Asian cuisine or Alfalfa sprouts for the hippy. Dippy trapeze of the world by the reality was there's a whole range literally from a to Z of seeds that are now commonly spouted turned into food and they can go from a Zouqi and bean sprouts and lentils and Broccoli and clover and Alfalfa two peas and hemp and radish and so literally every vegetable that we know actually has a seed that can be sprouted. Got It so you said I think maybe you're right. People probably have heard of sprouts as garnish may be on the sandwich or addition restaurant. And you said you've made this shift to thinking of them as an actual food source and not just garnish so explain a little bit more. What that means. And what kind of nutrients can we get from routes? So I grew up in New York City and then I moved to California and I was toggle between Los Angeles and San Francisco and then my life got composted. Ma Everything that I knew from work and relationships all kind of ended and so when it was time to begin kind of this next chapter Sh. I decided that I wanted to live in nature and I wanted to have space since he sunrises and sunsets and the place that I could literally afford to do that was the desert because it's very inexpensive. You could still buy acre of in the desert for five hundred dollars or a thousand dollars and so I decided to move to the desert and so fortunately on my land I have hot springs so we have water and we have a little oasis. We don't have rich soil and part of being in the desert on is that you're far away from things so not only am I in a desert. I'm in a food desert. Be as I'm an hour and fifteen minutes away from a whole foods and the nearest restaurants or del Taco and Burger King. So with that I started to and my life is still been plant-based so I decide. How is I going to get my organic vegetables and so I was like? Oh well let me just start to sprout so I started. Just fouts among beans and some Broccoli sprouts and some Alfalfa and some pe- Peace Green Green Peas and there were. I think they're tiffany was. There was one day when I literally had no other food. There was it was like on a Friday. I had consumed off might fruit from the farmers market. I didn't have anything else and this day. I just stayed sprouts and I felt good and I wasn't hungry and that kind of made the connection that wow I now have food sovereignty. I can grow my own food and will. I'm sure we're going to cover it but I was doing this in a forty eight square foot. Kitchen without soil without sunshine using the most provincial primitive spouting tools mason jars unbleached paper towels cheesecloth in on basic kitchen equipment and all of a sudden. I was growing copious amounts of sprouts in a very small space and feeling great and that was my kind of shift. Intas into sprouts. I love that and I think that's a really important distinction to talk about. Is that Unlike a garden which also a huge fan of that. I guess you are too but sprouts don't require outdoor space. They don't require soil They don't require sunlight in the same way that The Gardens do so for people who don't have that outdoor space Sprouts are a great alternative and for people who do I would say. Sprouts are also a great Thing to use in conjunction with the garden. I'm right now especially I'll just put that plug in there. I think those of us who can absolutely should garden and grow as much of own food as we can just to support the supply chain and also because then we know where our food came from and with sprouting. This is truly possible for essentially everyone because you just said forty eight square foot kitchen that I hear that right correct. It's tiny it's tiny my kitchen and so if you can do it in that small space all of us with any varying size of kitchen can find space and I'll even say for me There have been times when I lived in small apartments and the kitchen was super small. You don't actually have to grow them in the kitchen. They just need to be able to be rinsed a couple times a day. So I've grown sprouts on a table in my living room before and things like that. They're very adaptable Talk about let's go to the basic process of sprouting for someone who's never done it before. Walk us through kind of where they would start well. I'M GONNA start with Broccoli sprouts. Because they not only. Are they easy to do? They have these incredible. I'm nutrition of properties. Basically I start with filtered water or spring water and I buy organic seeds specifically designed for spouting which today I believe. We're very lucky because we live in a world where you can order them online and they can come in a few days so that's easy and we can discuss in a where to buy them later. But I usually buy my Broccoli sprouts. Seeds in five a five gallon bucket and I will take one tablespoon.

"I'm here with Doug Evans. Who was an early pioneer in the health food movement? He lost his mother to cancer and his father to heart disease and he watched other family members suffer through various health problems and invested in and Co founded several companies with the goal of helping improve future of health in our country. He was the inventor and founder of Sarah which was cold press juicing system for use at home and he also is really passionate involved about sprouting and has written a book called the sprout book and he lives off the water grid and the food grid on his land with private hot springs. Just east of Joshua Tree California and Sprouting is a big part of his life. He does it to be a wide degree but today he shares his expertise in what he's learned in ways that we can all implement this even if we have small kitchens or even truly no kitchen or no backyard. How we can all start to grow some of our own food very practical and very timely episode and. I think you will get a lot out of it so without further ado here we go doug welcome. Thanks for being here today. Thank you so much for having me. Katie it's a real pleasure and honor and I'm so excited I was thinking about this literally all night. Thank you. I'm excited to have you here. I think this is a really timely topic and an excellent one for MOMS. Because it's so practical and so- beneficial and to start broad. Actually I love to always start with a story. So we're GONNA go deep on sprouting today. Which is something that I do at my house and I love and that you are An expert in but I always love to hear the story of. How did you get into this world in the first place I I had a really challenging upbringing and I think we all do so. I won't go too much on that but I got into a lot of trouble. All my friends are on drugs and going to jail and really serious problems and I escaped that world into another world by leaping and joining the army so as a paratrooper in US army and that was more insane than my home life and then from the army. I got into graphic design and computer graphics and my wife is gone. I would say fairly well. I was in a relationship. I was making money. I enjoyed my work. I didn't really have the connection of meaning in purpose that I do today but I felt that I was doing good work. And it was bring out the best of me. And then my aunt got diabetes and they chopped off both of her feet below her ankles. And then my uncle got heart disease and then my mom got stomach cancer then. My father died from complications. Related to heart disease and then my brother had the first of three strokes and then a heart attack and diabetes. And I thought my entire life was genetically cursed and that I needed to really start to get my affairs in order that I just wasn't going to live and I was thirty six pounds heavier and just not having.

"Traveled to burning man an RV with his friend. Votre meads who vice news was a fire dancer who danced with who I think the virus I some people think I'm the fire. I JUST WANNA go. I just want you to go away. Never coming to burn it again. Honestly you guys are freaking me out fucking thing. Why don't you have pants on it's my RV noon? Said my my rules. I'M GONNA blow fire inside of it. Now excited what the RV. Okay I gotta go now. The doors are locked kind of raping. Your words had bought fifty gallons of spring that he collected himself or Mount Shasta. Dude I have a buddy did that. I swear he's listening. He's laughing. But I have a buddy who get back like a huge thing like the water. This was Doug's introduction to raw water. Oh No of course. Of course of course. Of course Doug was now part of the burgeoning raw water movement rotter three weeks after burning man. He posted on instagram that he was at a location deep in the Marine County forest and was about to embark on a minimum of a five day water fast. By the way your body's going to reject after three days of your fast then he's just doing water then showed several two and a half gallon jugs of live water which was a company that sold untreated spring water for fifteen dollars a jug. It's amazing or as little as eleven. If you brought twenty jugs at a time each jug had a deposit of twenty two dollars which is key with water. Just make sense amazing. How it's GonNa work out better soon. In December two thousand seventeen the New York Times article about the growing row water business and Rainbow. Grocery Cooperative in this city's mission district. One brand of water is so popular that it's often at a stock but one recent evening there was a glittering rabbit glass orbs containing two point five gallons of what is billed as raw water unfiltered untreated unsterilized. Spring water. Thirty six ninety nine each and fourteen ninety nine refill bottle the marketed by a company called live water. The store manager said quote. It has vaguely mild sweetness and nice smooth mouth feel. It's got a nice smooth mouth. Feel nothing that overwhelmed. The flavor profile unlike regular water just like boom. What isn't this? And then there. Of course we're startups torment sprang deliver untreated water. Zero mass water install systems to capture water from the atmosphere and has raised twenty four million in VC money but the biggest man and the new water movement was a gun. In Doug Evans. The New York Times quote the most prominent proponents of raw water. Is Doug Evans? A Silicon Valley entrepreneur after JUISTON company zero collapsed in September. Sorry took it to the Max. He won on the day cleanse drinking nothing but live water. Doug Quote Amit taste tap water in a long time before companies a popped up. That allowed him to just order water. Doug said he was going on what he called. Spring hunting trips. That's where he went and got spring water from a spring. Wow it's really complicated sh to shut the fuck up the Arrow. I'M GONNA go right at the water jump on it. What I shoot at it cut throat. GotTa be careful otherwise. It'll run away. Also take this jug with infill. It up I shoot the Arrow walking cooking. Put It on my head. The Jug balance on my Eddie House should should the heroine into the water. Okay and in a scream. We're going to cut it very delicately otherwise the hydrogen get out so he he said he went and got spring water from a spring even though he also later said he was introduced her wall row water by vodka so it couple of conflicting stories share. Doug said that the spring he would go to was closest San Francisco had recently been sealed off by landslides so now he had to cross private property in the middle of the night carrying his water bottle. Business model is stealing water from private property. It's pretty good. The claim that spring water is better. View is not supported by experts. Dr Of the Mayo Clinic quote without water treatment. There's a cute and then chronic risks is there's evidence all over the world of this and the reason we don't have those conditions here is because of our very efficient water system. The risks include e-coli viruses parasites and carcinogenic compounds as for Jew. Sarah Doug now believes it was quote killed in the first INNING INNINGS. Work as far as the company being a joke. He says people quote they really don't understand what the mission was and the facts and how any new technology starts off expensive as you. Innovate prices. Come down over time. They just got stuck on a narrative. This is what's Great. We now know the facts. Yeah Yeah so sorry dougie. He said the media misunderstood everything about you Sarah everything he told Vice. He's been traveling meeting New People expanding consciousness and somehow he is still in Silicon Valley which he loves. He claims he's being recruited at many companies for both board and executive positions and April. Two Thousand Seventeen Sarah folded. Its sued a Chinese Company for Copyright Infringement. Okay the company created a cold press juicer named juicier the difference. Is it work up your own vegetables and put them into a reusable bag then. Us eight times four depress. That's not an experience. And how are they cutting the fruit? So a company just came up with a juicer. All No it's the same thing but there's no proprietary fruits and vegetables. Yeah that's what I mean you can. You can just wash the bag. So it's exact same thing but just washed the bag. It's watch it's it's actually. Sounds like a great juicer. Probably better for the environment stuff. Oh yeah he's he would always say. The bags are recycled. Recycling them used up more. I'd everybody says everything's fucking recycled. All right take it. It's all staying here so today. Doug instagram and twitter are all of him just travelling and enjoying nature. He recently had a twenty posts about watching tortoise. So he's just now a rich guy. Let's Instagram don't remember Doug Evans got him right away. Yeah Oh boy. Oh he's still jus de the tortoise orange juice made on demand did I mention it's delicious. Blend rid is an antioxidant and a word. I've never seen flavonoids. It's time to get off. Instagram of flavonoids appears and opposed. All the tortoise posts are on twitter. Oh He's just here's one of them slowly performing Kanalingam on Persimmon persimmon. Lingus this guy Dougie Dugout Dougie follow. Okay wow yeah. It's our boy doug well well well Doug who knew that this story about the shitty juice machine was so much more involved.

Don't forget the squeeze your own bags. We appreciate it. Thank you very much thank you..

"Crazy to reporters I mean. How great would it be to have a camera on his face? When you're like so some some people in Washington state have realized that you can just squeeze it out really easily so still going to need the. You can't buy it. You can't buy backs. Yeah Machine No. But they've bypass the machine part right but you can't. You can't get a bag. We think we might have to lower the price of the machine. No you can't know because you can't. We think we might have to start dropping the machines out of a plane with little parachutes over cities. Pray for the best but you can't. You can't buy a bag unless you have machines. They've been able to so no doug. I know it's hard to hear but you just can't duck duck duck duck duck duck. Doug Baggage Dougie Dougie dugout. Well apparently we missed a huge step when we got to. The Max Flirt cool. I'll give you one right now. I don't even the machine. Jake that feel better. Stop the call presses its head press. That's not saying no. It's the exact same a tasty washing machine but there was also a river. Would you be your clothes on Iraq and the river? Well I mean the analogy is not working for anybody You're drinking juice from my hands to Bloomberg reporters. Yeah and learn about the squeezing backers said the final device was bulkier than what was originally pitched and that they were puzzled to find customers can achieve similar results without it so the Bloomberg reporters do their own test and discovered if they squeeze the bag with their hands that get the same amount of juice in less time than if they use juicer. Really hurts the business. You guys promise not to tell anybody where you found out okay by a person rooms. You're my only friends. All fourteen thousand of US this. Is they form a human. That's right take form of Doug flies a person close to the company set you. Sarah is aware the packs can be squeezed by hand but that most people would prefer to use the machine because the process Omar consistent so they literally just shoved someone out to say something there was no thought yes we think. Most people would like to spend near a thousand dollars. We'RE GONNA go back there and come up with a better talking point. We'll be right back. Sorry Sarah hadn't told investors or employees that the packs could be hand squeezed but they had all figured it out by the middle of two thousand sixteen not all investors were upset no Doug Chur talk of vast ventures quote. There's no doubt the packs could be squeezed without the machine. I'm still a huge fan. Yeah all right Yup Yup Yup Yup. It wasn't like it was hard to figure out when Doug went on The too embarrassed to ask podcast. One of the hosts had tried the machine and the other host asked her about it host one. What's your thirty second review of? It hosts too. I like it. I have to say I'm surprised. I thought it was juice in a bag. And you just squeeze it into your glass for some reason. I just thought that Doug Yeah. You wouldn't need a seven hundred dollar devices. Do the hats hosts one. Oh right it's the pressure you're paying for you guys like be more embarrassed to ask some of this stuff. It was so like the bag comes. And it's an it's a bag blitz. Got a little spellbound so looks you know what goes Oh. You squeezed that you ever looked like people. Drink those juice it like there. Yeah it's like one of those little squeezy like I just had a run juice thing. Yeah so it looks like you should so story caused some of the greatest mocking the Silicon Valley Company in history but when but the company is not about to give new CEO. Jeff Don wrote a blog on medium dot com quote. When I saw this week's headlines about hacking and hand squeezing produce packs. I had one overriding thought. We know hacking consumer products is nothing new. But how can we better demonstrate the incredible value? We know are connected. System delivers hacking he went. Julian assange did this to us. He went on to list batch reasons. Why did you say I was better than hand? Squeezing like quote the some of the system the press produce packs and the APP working together is what enables a great experience. What is I mean? This is so this is like our government you want experienced that value by hand squeezing produce pacts. Yeah it's about the joy of using the machine it's about the joy of not understanding. How much money most people have? It's about enjoying being so out of touch that you think people need a jet engine to get juice out of a squeeze bag it's about deluding yourself around a bunch of deluded friends and a diluted down called delusion but he also did offer full refunds to anybody for thirty days in this your business but the damage was bad. The company tried to save itself by announcing that the second generation juicer but only be two hundred dollars and it fired twenty five percent of Sarah Employees Gizmodo wrote a story about how horrible the Co. Doug was called quote the mad king of juice inside the dysfunction origins of Ju- Sarah. You let me do an impression for you real quick. It's denise reading that article thank God in it ex. Employees even said the produce aspect was bullshit at first the company wanted to use local farms. But the scale of the enterprise meant local farms would never be able to keep up even though Doug it's set at times in interviews during the launch that the produce was organic and the company listed while local small growers on the website. That's not what was happening. An ex employees quote the majority of produce is sourced from high volume operations like Dole. My God I mean. Imagine if you're buying this organic bag of bullshit only to find out they're giving you fucking Dole good. I would be like I'd find him. How are you doug get in the machine get inside the God damn machine? I want the full experience. The company listed them as partners but in reality no one had ever visited Dole or had any context they're just bought Dole produce like anybody else. Boy What are you doing this weekend bullshitting a country club card by may two thousand seventeen around half of the local partners farms were removed from the website. There was now just a button that said load more and when you clicked it that's when Dole showed up what they're hiding it because moto contacted one local girl who said they only briefy Burr briefly sold to you Sarah but it stop six months before others place at the president. Produce wasn't even coming from farms but produce distributors. The website originally claimed you. Sarah would quote source organic produce within days of harvest but now the site just said it was about ripeness different. It's really right. The company also made claims. Doug believe we're not a. We're not exactly what is called true like foods exposed to heat. Were less healthy. So that's coming straight from. Doug's bullshit or their coal press said had more nutrients one claim was a quote the process of shredding fruits and vegetables with blades can cause heavy casualties to good bacteria. Enzymes at vitamin. It's crazy at the truth is that the roughage is actually also good. If you shred fruit it loses all of its fucking a spirit. No the fruit gods. What kind and how does this actually soldiers went out? Is I live here now. Oh no you've woken him. Remember I said about how they're all cutting each piece of vegetable in a different way or for. Yeah Well Doug had them. Cutting produce in different ways to keep the casualty. He of not losing good bacteria enzyme so he was having them like completely made it up. Yeah had all these guys working and they're all cutting spinach and away. Careful careful careful. We need to save a lot of it the inside part that you can't see I've never read a book. Crazy never opened a book called for example gets chopped to half inch chunks but spinach goes into one sixteenths of an inch chunk so basically. We're opening up the cell walls so that we're allowing under force. The water molecules to come out share. Oh and the Sarah. Board determined the cost of shipping refrigerated juice packs to customers was unsustainable in the long term. A perfect storm. The website also doctor who had been warned by the FDA three times for making false statements. I mean again if they're reading the game after launched. Ju Ju Sarah was losing four million dollars a month. That's good though right so after sixteen months to Sarah announced it was shutting down operations on September. First two thousand seventeen. It was announced on the company's website quote to the company rights that is suspending the sale of both it's jus packets and it's juice press device. The last packet delivery will occur next week at the time the company was shutting down. Doug was at burning man. This tracks the tracks. He posted several instagram. Take the molly like that. You've got to take the molly under your tongue. And then swallow it. Keep the molly inside of the pill. Several instagram's including one in which he blew fire from the handlebars of a tricked out bicycle shares. So he was at burning man in other instagram Doug Warri Rainbow to do as he disappeared into a sandstorm. Dave the story ends here. I'm very happy and nobody ever saw doug again. You've got to cut them right so the bullshit doesn't fall out too hard. He.

"And then chop it into specific shapes based on each fruit or vegetable while in thirty five degree warehouse especially machine. But philly's a new Jack city room of juice masks on. Don't touch the peach contact directly with the Apple. The New York Times question. Exactly what do Sarah was since the isn't it about that New York Times. What are you? The company seemed to have plans much bigger than just making juice a partner. Google ventures said quote. It's the most complicated business that I've ever funded from Google Google. It software consumer electronics. Its pros and its packaging juice. Wi Fi password. This was because Sarah was planning to change the world through fruits and vegetables the times quote Mr Evanson as investors speak of juicero being a platform for a new paradigm of food delivery.

We'd love to that closed down because they only have like four things. Yeah no they had like eight. Th things first of all DICKHEAD. Sure we listen to the tape we just here for. I think you hear a lot more than four. That's all company announced the price of the Juicero one million dollars in March two thousand sixteen. What seven hundred dollars Jesus? What market are you? After the Bloomberg I literally is like the same people see the Lexus. Car Ribbon Commercials. And they're like I'll do that. Ad Point Zero zero one percent. Most people thought the company was insane but even with the price tag of seven hundred. The company was taking a loss on Juicero sold because they cost seven hundred and fifty to make so what. I'm just trying to crunch them number here. Real quick a the company charged businesses. Twelve hundred one. So if you had a they were actually read. People are like well you know. I paid twelve hundred because I have a business. We'll save don't have a big. Yes what is your deal. What you're doing if there was ever a product you went and they don't know you're too. Yeah it's from my home swear to God because you also business owner I am but I'm just GonNa put in my house to work. You've got to pay a fee. I don't give a shit we're we're we're GONNA swing by your office. You're not allowed. Okay Bell Nine Hundred. No six fifty. Okay we fuck shit. Yeah Okay Yeah Yeah. It's you Wifi. I want to have a juice. I think the way that they made that work as they wouldn't send the products to a business. If you didn't pay I mean maybe if you had a home doug told the media that unlike a Mac or an iphone a Jew Sarah could be shared quote. He's literally the biggest asshole ever. I mean we work is probably better. This guy's really a miracle the guy as he's the to look at that we work. I invented and a room with Pasta Salad. We work quote so you can imagine this being ache in a community center or at a newsstand or in an office. No let's let's start at newsstand. I mean I'm pretty sure that makes a lot of sense. Just the paper. Charlie Anna Green Cucumber Kale newsletter community. Talking about he's no idea what he's talking about. You know we could use in our community centers. Seven hundred dollar juicer naming an occasion where it won't work kids birthday parties parks underwater and pools. We can't afford sparkling water. Well that's going to be an issue but a big juicer. For Your Business Business Business Community Center at the business. So that's you admitted it. You're on record. I'm wearing a wire dummy. Give us all your money. We need it we. We don't have any money. Spent it all on a plane juicer. He compared that you Sarah to the release of the Tesla roadster good change the world man. Doug it also said during interviews juice press wheeled four tons of force. No I mean just just crazy. Talk Gobbles he good. He told the podcast too. To ask quote. There are four hundred custom parts in here. There's a scanner a microprocessor. There's a wireless chip a wireless Tanna. He had done ten three hundred ninety six more. It's more than some stores. I know about mall. I don't think that's necessarily true at all. Sounds like it's four under what most stories than what you're talking about the one. I'm thinking you're talking about by far more than four. So he had done tons of press so the world knew about Sarah and launched in March two thousand six. Of course he did a lot of press but I got it. I got it now. Stop waiting I got it. Okay my brain hurts. It's not great. Can't stop apparently there was not as big market for a seven hundred dollars. Subscription juicer as Doug thought how do in the Mid West? The numbers aren't fantastic. Really Yeah Weird because we do ship out of the bubble. That's right we know we do doug but there's still not getting it. I really thought I was going to blow up in Ohio. Yeah no everyone in Ohio. Thinks you're fucking idiot. Actually right they just don't have the strong enough Wi fi passwords. A former employee told Gizmodo. You Sarah sold fewer than one hundred units on launch day pretty good pretty good numbers considering the investment of what one hundred thirty million dollars another twenty. Sorry so so one hundred dollars and they've sold one hundred. Yeah unless it's pretty good. Most stories on the juicer noted that the price was insane and it was only on sale in three states California Nevada and Arizona because of shipping the produce bags which were fresh locally sourced from organic farms so because of the model. You made where your machine will reject any of your old Jews packets. You've now limited yourself to three states. Two of which I don't think are going to be interested in Arizona. Yeah good luck door to door. Just sweating is ball's up. Hey pleased by this shit? I'll suck your Dick if you take a juice zero. Is your husband home with things not going well on October? Doug was replaced as CEO. Jeff Dunn a former President Coca Cola but also a board member and investor. Sure so somebody who believed in the product yes Douglasville the chairman of the board in January. You Sarah Drop. The price of the machine from seven hundred to four hundred may meeting. They take a huge loss on each one and they expanded to seventeen states. Okay Still Not New York though. No no yeah. Some investors receive zero. They were surprised to discover that they could just squeeze the juice Arrow bag with their hands. Which meant there was. No point in buying the juicer. I remember that part of this. Which is it's just a big problem. I mean imagine the first guy. I don't think we need to spend that money. Full same shed. Wi Fi.

"So and then. He went through links to help. Doug understand that even catch and release is not humane. It's actually more stressful on the past for you. To catch them relocate by the way also such bullshit he's like look at the heart rate monitor of the fly. I don't know I don't shut up. When he goes to a fly in the San Francisco office and then all of a sudden he's in a field in San Ramon well and by the way. You're talking about a lifespan of two days. Yeah so one of your days is in your office half of Your Life Yours you big transporter. Your whole life is in one location for the most part. Yeah unless you're in one garbage Kanye. Wow can you believe this is all there is to it? Wonder if there's anything more I don't either this bananas really big in really good talk about a lifetime worth of food. My whole life is going to be honest but I'm not gonNA get very deep. No one knows what the fly resolution was. Now of course like apple and Theranos. Doug wanted his juicer. To be the best of course it had to be. Yes because it was important so he worked with Yves Behar. Who is like the big fucking design guy right things he had A. He has a company called fuse project. Bihar is just a guy. Forbes called the most influential designer in the world. I haven't heard them so not really cheap apple stuff right but worth it for juicer. Sure Yeah because a lot of flies. Every agrees. Juicer. Has To look amazing. Yeah for sure it does. The quality doesn't matter as much as had appear gizmodo quote. Multiple sources confirmed that a fuse project. Employees was a frequent present in office for months. And this leads doug to taking the advice of the fuse project employees over the engineers. He had hired to build that you Sarah and this May as well be a spiritual adviser is brought in. This is all about Bihar. Let's say it was involved name. Attached is a big deal. Share ex employees quote make juicer. Wouldn't that be a good idea? Play quote he wanted to have the notoriety. They had to accept it or pretty much be booted out naturally. The said to this lead issues with making the internal design team was working at the same time as the fuse. Project team was reading the building. Right you're centrally competing. They were both at the same time. Making different versions. Neither knew what the other was doing. Sarah engineers created a machine that was smaller and cheaper than diffuse project version. One place at their version would cost two hundred and fifty dollars but doug wanted to a one touch. No Mass juicer and it needs to look quote friendly so it. They had it. They had won. They made one that was like two hundred and fifty dollars. It was good to go. Yeah now but it's not great to go and that's way bears. Version turned out bright white with rounded corners. What an amazing could you imagine seeing something that he'd already made so when the internal designers saw the final version they were quote horrified by it. You've got all these angles you've got ruling. You gotta make this plastic and Bihar wanted aircraft grade aluminum okay to create the pressure juice out. You don't be you really need plane materials to make. I mean I understand. The other. One was shooting parts out of it like a malfunctioning robot. Earlier cartoon but still. You really don't need anything that has to do with an aircraft we think inside. We'll be a propeller from a plane and then a little tiny pilot will live in a window and there will shrink them down and he'll be trapped in each one of them. The internal team raise their concerns. About how much more expensive this would be to make the final juice arrows but her. Their concerns were dismissed. How much are we talking? We'll see it was going for the upscale juicer market which doesn't exist right he's essentially been trying to get something on the market and now he's like no but for the market that doesn't exist we want the best version of it for the Oprah's right. Oh wait and it just wasn't bay got on board. He swung big and got names. Like Oprah Winfrey L. Boy. She put up a long video on our personal instagram as cross promotion. Gwyneth PALTROW's group. Google wrote an article about it. Obviously Gupta at something on it. We need to start holding people accountable when they do that shifts like we need to keep a list because that always falls apart. That's the part you never really. You're like Oh this guy as it should be like. Oh go ahead rich role. He's a runner D- marathon rich role. Okay a heated it to our podcast with Doug and this all makes sense because selling Ju- Sarah was as much about selling Doug Doug Evans as it was about selling to Sarah. Yeah which is where you want your business when you have a guy like doug at the helm now as part of the roll out. The Times did a profile on Doug in March. Two Thousand Sixteen quote. Mr Evans is a raw food evangelist. He said although occasionally I eat steamed vegetables to be dogmatic tonight dog. Matic sorry and the near. Time said he wore shoes made of hemp. Wow so he'll eat vegetables like a regular. Yeah sometimes so relatable deity is so. He explained the juicer quote. This machine itself as a white plastic slab who is not doing a good job spent that much time on it. It's a slap. It's a big slab stupid veggies go in it and shit comes out and I blew it. I fucking blew. This speech is in my other jacket. Roughly the size of the food processor to get some juice. You insert a pouch that resembles an IV bag. And just so stupid a couple minutes. Later a thin stream of vividly colored liquid squirts into a glass. It's just so stupid. It's just you've been incubating too long. You thought you thought a year too hard on this shit and unlike so many juices never need to be cleaned. Okay also that user would always be connected to Wifi. That's right yes right. Apply fight switches such a step not now the juicers roaming fees on that are gonNA be crazy. Let's take a juicer upstairs. What's your Wifi Password? So I can make a juice. I'm sorry what is your Wifi password after make juice it's a long story but I thought a year and a half two long on some bullshit. It had a smartphone APP. It's so dumb it had a Qr code reader. It's just like a gang bang of Silicon Valley thoughts and it had high tech juice packaging so the way it worked is. You'd order a package of fruits and vegetables before you made juice. Juicer would read the Qr Code on the pack of vegetables and fruit and use the web connection to determine how fresh the package was. What if it was past its expiration date? Which was generally seven days. The machine refuse to make the juice that is insane. What about vegetables from a market? Wouldn't that work really well. No it's that you have like a Ratomir to put my juice pack in there. It's too old what you guys sent it to me can't process. Nobody bought it from your company. Sarah too old fucking thing I swear to God. The packages cost between five to seven bucks each and would be on a mail order subscription. You could only buy them if you own juicero. This is so dom- putting what are you doing there? You buy yes juice. Sarah Sarah me see your tattoo. You don't go and do you. Give me the fucking juicer. Sorry Fuck is wrong with you I was gonNA shoot it up. I love the juice. Oh and the packs couldn't be shipped long distances because they were perishable yeah. It's a perfect plan. That's the idea is also perishable. The process of preparing the produce to put in. The package was incredibly complicated. Carrots and ships. Couldn't you just go by Jew? Sarah would receive truck Lou. Truckloads of produce from local organic farms. Triple.

"Fucking SHAVE OUR HEADS. Not Tonight at that first step for me. Here's a number. That's a digit short. You figure it out a little area bell all right take care. I'm in a cab. It's going away. So he goes to some of the original backers of organic avenue. They like the idea of a little cold press and invested in K. And George took the funds and kept working on his new juicer and then he got his big break quote. Then I got an introduction to a partner at Kleiner Perkins Cleaner. Yeah yes and then I got introduction to a partner Kleiner Perkins through a Vegan fashion designer. Who Knew someone at the humane society who knew them that just wear lattice a vegan fashion designer the humane society Kleiner Perkins someone one of the biggest venture capital Through the humane society and the model. This is where they keep the animals. There's all makes a lot of sense so he meets this partner goes in and tells them about the tiny coal press but smaller and the guy and it shoots shrapnel when it's done that's how you know it's finished. It'll shoot shrapnel into your neck and then you go that's ready and the guy fucking loved it a client perkins invested five hundred thousand. The worst one decades get validated. You're now come. And according to The New York Times set dug up to quote incubate in Silicon Valley. Oh by the way I mean. Destiny finally fulfilled. Like this is the this is the. Silicon Valley Prophecy. This man was destined to get there. Doug moved to Brooklyn from California from Brooklyn to California and ended up in temporary housing for a bit in the shopping center. sure. I live in Spencer's gifts it's pretty dope. There's a lot of labs there's edible unease. Take me to your dealer posters cool man you know if you wanNA combine them on the homework okay. Yeah that's dope. That's you have a roommate right. Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah. That's cool man. It's just me and Spencer. So yeah if you guys are GONNA come by nominee some sexy handcuffs on the birthday card section. Oh great birthday cards. Isn't that the whole Stober thinker? Yeah Okay so you're in the whole store store. Okay yeah all right cool you could have just awesome but we have little statues stupi cool. Yeah no I forgot I. I'll I'll swing by for sure I'll bring stuff from ear. I ran out of specifics. Serious stuff I said earlier I bring by. I can't think of anything either. Novelty Shot Glasses Ya. Yeah I'll bring some of those over and then what else that's about all this stuff. We got really is some bad positions stores. It's huge. The posters are revolt. And they're kind of incentive. Yeah Yeah so yeah. There's tons of other stuff. We saw there. Every time I mean I I shouldn't say sell because I'm just living there because it's an empty shop. But yet the other stuff we sell their like. I said the dealer poster at Wendy's there's nipple butterscotch what yeah that's butterscotch for nips. It's called buber sketch. Yeah we got. That didn't seem like on brand. Yeah we got these weird glasses dude. These X ray vision glasses. Psa doesn't work that's just and again. I'm not gonNA name any more specifics after that. That's the last one so I'll see the homework shop where I have not pressed you on your inventory. I've pretty much let you go with statues and cards and here. You are fucking third degree in me man so we got congratulations cards. I'm not card pissing contest. I'll bucar yeah. Well your store might be a little easier to define on the fly. You ever think about that. Because you're just a bunch of cards. Yeah like sympathy like graduation. Yeah well that's a little easier a little easier Spencer's gifts it's pretty much miscellaneous potpourri store so you know what I mean. Maybe back to your pope. Are- yeah we do but it smells like skunk. Its WHOLE GAG. Gag area okay. We've gag area. It's great it's not great but anyway I'm done. I'll maybe not even gonNA come by anymore. I don't like the energy. Okay yeah all right. I'm going to shut the gate. So Doug focused on trying to raise more money had fundraising meetings. Doug would promised. A revolutionary juice machine was capable of squeezing large pieces of fruits and vegetables and turning it into juice juice machine. Totally what is he showed them a three D. printed rendering of it but did not have or did not want to reveal his working prototype. I think we know which one maybe because pieces flew off. Yeah but still. The pitch worked. Investors went for it altogether. He raised sixteen point. Five million to make a small cold. Press Juicer oh I'd we have a hero I am so sorry. I misjudged this guy. It's it's quite a salesman. Sixteen point five to make a tiny cold. Press juice machine now. That's like Lockheed Martin numbers well because all the rich guys in Silicon Valley are obsessed with living forever yet. Mister juice can save. You is like a fucking Bullseye Right. Yes for sure. Cold press juices is mild compared to companies like Ambrosia which is a bled transaction company. Sorry that changed blood transfusion and how by the way we will get there without question. Can you Western Union Mizuho juiced? Anita hit well. Company began operating in two thousand sixteen. It had locations in L. A. Omaha Houston Tampa it charges or later list. It was charging eight thousand dollars to get a transfusion of a leader of blood from people ages. Sixteen to twenty five. Oh my God for twelve thousand. You get two liters. This was for the purpose of being younger. This oh my God. It's normal. Rich people injecting the blood of young is it did Alan Ball. Pichit feel so cool. Oh my God why do I want to go to the mall sudden? What's going on with me? Jesus how this kid was seventeen. Yeah feels great. Yeah you should drain that whole kid. We did not. We drained him. We drained him. I felt like doing jumping. Jacks or something. Yeah you will. Yeah anyway the kids did. Oh yeah totally crystal with others. More of them. Yeah Oh yeah yeah. We got jars full of them in the basement. So the company stopped treating patients in February two thousand eighteen after the FDA released a statement against championships. Like could you not do the thing but yeah and also another vampire thing? Let's not do that you. You're you're in a bad place the FDA's like no like you are bad. You really are. Yeah Anyway and by the way they didn't say no they should you? We're asking we'd love it in a B. And they're not the only their other companies are getting into blood transfusion cool so but that's the rich guy mindset silicon valley. What can I do to stay younger? So of course they jump on the call press shirt so how long until they're putting seventeen year olds in the juicer? Garnett taste him. Oh my God you know we should do is a thirteen year old off cotton. Aguirre's bring me a fresh baby. Yeah now we can do some moon shooting ladies at does that your baby. Yes we want so yes so. Doug sets up shop. He Hires Software Engineers Mechanical engineers food scientists and APP developers. It was going to be an epic juicer. Gesia at the Jews. You're pretty soon juice stand. Yeah sure. Pretty industrialized you're going to need more money to make his dream happens. He's seventeen million dollars. Where is it going all the people in the business? The exactly read Rent Bank for boys on his sure. The working part of the machine was fine but the software and and the facility. We're all very costly. Okay Doug quote. I was just naive. I was like forrest. Gump I had no idea what it took to make a piece of hardware that could ship to consumers safely. Okay I mean I'm still caught up in someone. Being forced just naive dreamer he okay. Wasn't he my hero forrest? Gump did it. All and there was footage to back it up. Yeah Yeah went on forever long long long long long run so he went out to get more funding. Sure again the idea of making juice at home. Sound great to venture capitalists and. Doug raised seventy million dollars. Okay you listen and listen. Good Dave if.

"His father then died soon after from a heart attack. Jesus Christ is brother was then diagnosed with type two diabetes atrial fibrillation hypertension and that led to him having two strokes his it is to the Max. I mean it really. The bad news is the bad news is to the Max at all. I'm saying like the doctor was like an. I've got bad news about your brother. He's like really taking to the Max actor. What's wrong with him? Oh yeah heavy. That bags Kleenex. I'm an empty net. Max So Paul was obviously completely freaked out and suddenly confronted by his own mortality quote. Something really seemed off. Yeah everyone you love just died. Both my parents died in the same hospital and we all ate the same standard American Diet. Okay he jumped into trying to figure out how he could avoid the same deaths as his family members and he began researching health and lifestyle choices and decided to live healthier. Okay right okay quote. What I thought would be complicated turned out to be so simple and obvious for all the debate among nutrition scientists. I had one powerful realization fruits and vegetables. Save lives well step into my office as in two weeks? He went from Eating Hamburgers. And Fries. To organic fruits and Vegetables. Nuts and seaweed. Yeah okay that's smart yeah bit later. He met Denise Mary a nightclub she was a Vegan and she introduced into it quote cold cucumber and became a v. she's to the Max went cold cucumber. You don't have to give up saying meet. It's not part of the Diet. Say Turkey I can make anything horrible. What scared me. But even more than that denise introduced him to juice boy. Okay okay I feel like this. I know people like this. Who when they do discover or like get into juicing. You're like shut up. Shut your mouth. Hey where's the Vegan nobody cares what's in your tummy. Just walk around. She killed a Kale smoothies today. Cool what a great. I want to ten seconds of my life back. Just go back to the juice bar. It's awesome for the cucumbers are so good today. Yeah that's Dope. That's awesome cucumber beat Kiwi cool man Combo. It's awesome clean. Hey can I come over later? Check out your stool. Well stool implies. It's hard and we'll have taken this to the Max I wear diapers. It's US man cool. You know when you started this story I was like I don't WanNa hear it anymore now. I'm turning the TV off juices great. That's awesome all right. I gotta get back to the store. Yeah for sure. Even the bathroom quote Denise also introduced me to the power of cold press juice and I had an epiphany cold press choose not only tastes. Delicious is an easy and convenient way to help achieve optimal health and meet the recommended daily. Fruit and vegetable intake. You also this epiphany who's at the inventor of cold press juices also had the epiphanies like minute hit me. This is healthy for you know. That's why we opened the shop. That's why we will. I think this is good for you and shit. No that's our pitch. You're in our store. Do you know where you are. You're in our store you're here. We believe in this ten years ago. Dude I just blew. Everyone's mind will well the cup of juice so much. They decided to open Jew store in the I. Love is based on Kale in the early two thousands on the lower east side. They opened the first cold press Jew store in New York City organic after now. Okay it was the first call press juice shop in New York but a cold press cost thousands and could only make three gallons and our hey headfirst that's where you jump into this to the man so they bought five what they bought for. How much does it cost thousands? Okay Yeah Right. But then they need more so they bought industrial strength juicers which were the size of a telephone booth and could make fifteen gallons an hour okay. They bought five of those. They should just get payphones. It sounds like the Max cinemax very much quote so there. They got five of them. Fifteen gallons just happy making fucking by okay. So they're really mega Japan. Yeah okay a lot of diapers a quote. The Vision for that company was to do everything l. o. v. e. live organic Vegan experience. A honestly I think you just jump the shark when you start using acronyms like like Gary Busey. When he started using acronyms. Everyone's like well. He's not coming back. That's the Gerry. That's why it's a it's all connected exponentially your Gary. Stop remembers words now. Though love and plant based no additives or preservatives. The unpasteurized juice was ten bucks a bottle pretty decent. I mean it's expensive but yeah but the dog's in Heaven Doug fucking loves it quote. It was so magical to be able to have that. I was drinking several glasses of juice day as primary form of hydration. Okay waters okay. Too Young to quit water. I think they recommend not doing that. I quit water so but it was a bit too expensive for the lower sides headed uptown and open more juice stores they opened more stores yes so they're franchising a nine or successful business organic avenues. Franchising Okay Right. Yeah but prophets are very tough to come by because he opened a few and nobody came to the first one because real estate in New York is expensive New York and they were dealing with perishable inventory. Now they were on the verge of going out of business and then a private equity firm swooped in and bought a majority interest. Okay the firm immediately ousted dug into the east from the company SMART. Okay I love. I don't have a firm but this is good. They're making good calls. Although organic avenue would go on to fail anyway. It was actually about the fact that it's just too expensive right but that Doug had a very serious problem quote for me. I was just wondering. How am I going to get my juice? Do these you come to bed. None now where am I going to get hydration tomorrow seriously drink water? I quit water. I'm juice only. I signed a contract with myself to the Max to niece tax. Signing a contract with yourself doesn't make sense. It does too. I even notarized it. I can't break it now. I'm legally bound. I'll sue myself. I'll sue the pants off myself. I'm to go outside need a Bush and then maybe I'll come inside and why don't you come come inside? Need a push. And that's what I'm insinuating. I'M GONNA GO SHRUB GRUBBING and it'll be a backup here for the big financial. Max Forgot McKee's. Can you unlock the door honey? I forgot the keys. I get so hyped up. This is my tooth man. Who's my juicer? And make it a little juice. Don't ear baby bill. Sorry I stop talking. So he bought every juicer. He could find the way to do it. Hundred percent but it. It just wasn't working. It wasn't the same as coal press juice. God quote didn't have that magic that I was accustomed to what happened is I knew too much like at that point. I knew too much about quality. I knew that the best use was juice made in the moment Yeah I mean this guy. Got Juice spoiled so so this is apparently very serious problem quote. I searched everywhere for an at home. Juicer that created easy. Fresh raw coal press juice but nothing existed in the market. It kept me up at night to eat really was living that come to bed. Can't.

I'm Anne Doug Evans was born and raised in New York City. That's got the good salsa. Yeah he was very Early on he was into art but then he said he became board drawn on paper with pencils. Sure Yeah I get it. It's got a cap and quote went for Fame by painting graffiti on subway trains and hang out with Alexa Warhol Fab Five Freddy inhering. Okay all right. Yeah so a real warriors vibe. I mean look who doesn't when they're spraying on a train be like. I'm like Warhol He said he was like we're hall. Yeah that's what he's saying he's saying by doing that. He was hanging out with them. Okay very different. I thought he was hanging out with them. I was like. Oh he's fant Freddie. Yeah do this okay. So this guy's just he's just putting paint on cars that's right alone fab. Five Freddy's good friend of mine. He claimed he couldn't handle anymore. High School so he quote slipped out. So it's different than the dropout. Yup that's the slip out. At this point I hated him. This is when you hate it okay. Well after he slipped out early by the way I was already done okay. Good this'll be a fun ride And then he joined. The army went into the eighty second airborne quote I went in wanting to be general into push my limits to the Max. Let me guess in his head. He was friends with goose and Maverick iceman either. He's a jerk off okay. So he went in there with the ambition of being in charge. Essentially must be general right to the. Max. That's cool. That's cool. I don't know why you don't like this guy. That's a cool thing it's like talking to a can of Pepsi. But he didn't he didn't become a general and left the army slipped out out of the army and he said When he got out the closest profession to doing graffiti on trains was graphic design to. That's like that's how you pitch your friends or you're selling out like and I mean it's awesome. It's got the same vibe called beautiful graphic design so my office will be the subway car. Mike Keyboard will be the paint. And Andy Warhol and Fab Five Freddy will still be as much a part of my posse as ever. There's still in. Here's my latest. We'RE ISN'T MCDONALD'S? Yeah yeah and instead of fighting people. I'm going to take a forty five minute lunch year. Yeah that's right doing it their way. That'll show me so Doug Doug go-getter sure he doesn't. He doesn't do numbers one to nine. He just does Ted. You know what I mean. Jesus Christ okay. So this is the kind of guy who has one of those little things for his sunglasses. So they don't fall off to the MAX SORTA guys like I'll tell you when I get that Jetski like I'm out I can't. He wrote in two thousand sixteen quote. I believe there are no chances in life only choices a cut sake. I mean are we this is. He's just a quote book and the most is just like a urban outfitters quote book. It really is and the most powerful choice you can make to commit yourself to what you care about most to go all the way with everything you do some I. It's like I. This sounds redundant. But it's like a lame Tony Robbins to the Max. Max what if you took Tony Robbins to the Max? He's already to the Max is he. No Okay Doug wants to be a graphic designer which just doesn't fit with this lifestyle. He's like you've got to live life to the Max everyday to the fullest. Besides Monday through Friday nine to six when you are in the office designing graphically yes Freddie. What do you think that's a teddy bear that stuffed? I'm like fucking Warhol. Yeah and there'll be no follow-ups. Yeah which reminds me select. Oh yes I wanNA copy that motherfucker like Andy Warhol. So he's not going to sign up for classes right because he does everything with the Max. Yeah no that's too. Slow and steady tracked down leads legendary designer Paul Rand and just showed up on his doorstep. One day cool cool. That's to the Max to the Max I mean. He lives what he talks about.

The Wavell supreme court looked at it was a really that talent. You the experience since the nineteen Ninety-six crime. How over the course of that time over the course of six trials forty one out of forty three African Americans who are in the jury pools over that time were removed by the prosecutor, and that there were many, many, many indications in the record that the prosecutor and it was the same prosecutor in all six trials Doug Evans, the local prosecutor elected d a down there had been going out of his way to get black people off that jury and had asked questions of potential black jurors that he didn't ask of similarly situated if you will potential white drawers the jury that ultimately convicted curse flowers had on it eleven whites and one black and a town that is about fifty five percent.

"Is generally a question, we get a lot of when we tell people about this case a lot of people here that someone has been tried six times. And they think, but wait a second double jeopardy that's not allowed. But the fact of the matter is that double jeopardy only applies if you've been acquitted of a crime, so if you're brought to trial, and you're acquitted the prosecutor can't charge you again, but Curtis flowers has never been acquitted. He's only one has appeals or had juries hang. And so in that in that situation the prosecutor constitutionally has every right in the world to just keep retrying him. And there's no limit as far as we can tell that says at a certain point, you just have to stop as far as what Doug Evans motivations are. I think you know, from his perspective he thinks Curtis flowers is guilty. And he thinks he has a strong case. And so I think he feels that it's his job is prosecutor to just keep trying this case until a conviction sticks. So what does the supreme court set to decide here specifically? So the ques-. That the justices are going to be considering has to do specifically with what happened in jury selection in that six trial in two thousand ten so injury selection, both sides, both the defense and the prosecution get a certain number of what are called peremptory strikes, and they can use a strikes to remove prospective jurors from the jury for almost any reason. But one reason that you cannot use is race. So you cannot strike a black juror because they are black that's unconstitutional and Doug Evans was the prosecutor in this case has actually been caught doing exactly that removing a black juror because they were black in two of Curtis flowers previous trials and one of Curtis lowers convictions was actually overturned because of it so in the latest trial number six Doug Evans, used five of his six peremptory strikes against black perspective. Jurors and the jury ended up being made up of eleven white people and one black person. Now Evans in the state say that Doug Evans, struck those people for constitutional reasons things. Things like they worked with Curtis relatives. Or they relate to court a couple of times occurred assists, defensing no Doug Evans was doing the same thing in the six trial that he was caught for previously that he was striking those perspective. Jurors because they were black if Doug Evans had done this in the past and was caught doing it. Why is he allowed to continue with this case? Because there's there's no rule that prevents it. You know, this is the remedy here is in the courts, so Curtis flowers can say something has gone wrong in my case, and his remedy is to appeal to a higher court to a state supreme court to the US supreme court. And if they find he was right? The Doug Evans did make mistakes in the case Curtis flowers remedy for that is he gets a new trial. And there's nothing in there. That says there has to be a new prosecutor so Doug Evans's elected DA in that in that district. So he he gets to keep trying it. Okay. So you looked at the case and decided to investigate tell us what you and your. Your team we're trying to find so our involvement in the story started with a tip. We got a very short Email from a woman who lived in Mississippi who said, you know, there's a man here who's been tried six times for the same crime. And the evidence against him. Seems if at best and us the most interesting part of that tip was the the six trials part because we had that same reaction that you did which was six trials. This doesn't seem right. This doesn't seem possible. And so we went into it with this question, essentially, what is going on here. Like, how did this person? Critics lowers come to be tried six times by the same prosecutor and answering that question ended up entailing a huge amount of reporting into every aspect of the case. So we really looked at everything every bit of evidence that the DA presented in those trials to juries are team spending more than a year reporting on this case. And by the time, we were done we had really found that a lot of this evidence didn't hold up to scrutiny. But then you found something else out about Evans. In his office. Tell us about that. So we knew that Doug Evans had this history in the cardis flowers trials of striking black jurors at higher rates than he struck white. Jurors that's in the record. We're very familiar with that. But that led us to this larger question, which is what is Doug Evans doing in all of the other cases that has offices tried because he's been Doug Evans system. The prosecutor in this district since one thousand nine hundred one so he's tried hundreds of cases or his office has tried hundreds of cases. So we had this very specific question. Like, what is going on in jury selection in all of these other cases, it it turned out that answering that question was a huge challenge. It took months and months of work. We had a reporter who had to go courthouse to courthouse in all of the courthouses of Doug Evans district and tracked down all of these paper transcripts of jury, selection and all of these trials, and these these things were stored and all kinds of weird places like summoned this. Old abandoned men's bathroom or a former jail a storage container. So she had detract on all these transcripts and scan the mall and at the end of it. I believe she scanned. I think one hundred and fifteen thousand pages of documents. And so then we took all of this information all these scans. And we gave them to our data reporter, and our data reporter spent about three months coating all that data entering it into a huge spreadsheet developing a methodology with some statisticians and running the numbers on this. And at the end of that months and months later, we had an answer, which is that Doug Evans was striking black potential jurors in his district at four and a half times the rate that he struck by potential jurors what could Evans face could he pay for this? Anyway, I mean, again, there is there's no there's no penalty for the prosecutor in this. So even if the supreme court, here's this case. And decides that Doug Evans, his struck black jurors because they're black in violation of the. US constitution, if they ruling Curtis's favor, and they say Evans is at fault here. What happens after that? Is that the case is back where it's been so many times before it's back in the hands of of the district attorney, Doug Evans, and he'll get to decide what to do with it. And he'll he'll get you decide whether he wants to try it for seventh time, what do you want people to understand about this case specifically in about this reporting because this does seem like a pretty unique case for the supreme court to take up. Yeah. It's not the kind of case that the supreme court usually looks at its it's we've talked to a lot of experts about about about it. And you know, this case is not this is not a Bush v gore. This is not a Roe v. Wade this is this is not a case with huge national implications. It seems to be a pretty what they call. A fact bound case a case that really is about what happened in this one particular courtroom in this one particular trial, which again is is not the kind of case the supreme. Court usually it looks at. But I think that it does have a it gets to all of these larger issues in the criminal Justice system. Like, we hope that our reporting and that the supreme court's taking of this case encourage people to take a look at what they're prosecutors are doing jury selection tomorrow free.

"Once there's an incredible conversation. The DA's is Doug Evans, and there's an incredible scene. He's he's this kind of sort of like almost like Oz figure for like the first several episodes of the show. You don't hear from him? And he like he comes up again, and again, and again and trying to like sort of circling around how much effort he has put into trying this case over and over again in the lengths that he has gone the jurors that he has dismissed the evidence is suppressed and then finally you end up in his office. And you have what feels like a pretty impromptu and informal conversation with him. We don't do this very often. But actually, I feel like it'd be helpful just listened to it for a second committee that. The walls were so thin that we could hear Doug Evans in a back room somewhere down the hallway, and we could hear the home of his assistant prosecutors and investigators answering the phone talking about cases. And then after about an hour so of waiting a man walked up the hallway he had white hair that was parted on one side, and he was wearing khaki pants and a blue button down shirt that had the district attorney's insignia on it he stopped when he got to the entrance to the lobby and leaned one arm against the wall. It was Doug Evans Evans. Madeleine was Parker. Radio. I meet you. We're stopping by. Because we've been reporting on the case of Curtis flowers, and we wanted to talk to you about the case can't talk to anybody about cases, still pending. See can't tap his pending. On. It's finally over Ken. But as long as it's pending. I can't go Dana specs but case it's an pending for so long. Doug, Evans, stayed in the entrance to the lobby. He didn't invite us back to his office. But you didn't walk away. Either seven reporting on the case for about a year. And what about a talked to a lot of people have time to understand your approach like before that interview. And then how would you describe yourself in that moment? Yes. So before that interview. I mean, I tried to arrange a formal interview with him, and he just hadn't responded. So this was sort of a last ditch effort would not guys got to know that you guys are there and push in like, yeah. I mean, I don't know. What point though, I mean, because we started out talking to people who are witnesses in the case and Curtis his family, all of whom are black and the town and the area so racially divided that actually don't think a lot of if any white people in town knew we were there for perhaps even most of the summer. But then after that. Yeah. I mean at a certain point, especially when we're going around. Reporter Parker is scanning all the court records at all the court houses that is a thing that people were talking about. But so my process was you know, I sort of prepare for lots of different scenarios prepare for the ideal scenario, which as we sit down, and we talk until I don't have any more questions. And so that's a very long list of things. I wanna find out I have had that happened before. So want to be prepared for that? Then you sort of prepare lesser versions of that. You know, like if I could only ask him three things or if I can only talk to him for twenty five minutes or something. And how different is that preparation for podcast than it was when you were writing not at all really the same..
