Deliberation in Practice and Pandemics, With Leva Esnulaityt
"Let me turn it over to gave chesney late today again. She's a policy analyst at ocd. gave up. thanks for taking the time out to the social media and politics podcast. Hello thank you for having me so the stage here. Why don't we start out by outlining for the listeners. what types of processes we're talking about here. What exactly are deliberative processes. According to the criteria outlined by the oecd so a representative deliberative process is a type of innovative citizen participation so it usually refers to a randomly selected group of citizens that is broadly representative of the society. Which is gathered for at least several days to learn and deliberate us specific policy issue and then provide collected recommendations to a public authority that has gathered this group or commissioned the process. You've outlined a number of different types of these delivered processes. Which i wanna get into in a second but i When you were making the report there's two hundred eighty nine cases of deliberation that you studied. And i was just curious if we could start out by talking about how you actually went and selected those cases of where they come from indeed. It's quite an interesting database. Offer close to three hundred examples. So i we have identified the three main criteria that we wanted all of the deliberative processes in the database to meet so that they would be government in shaded so meaning that they do have impact in the making there. Were at least one day of face to face meetings and so they were all as well face to face and at that point not online and the way that we went about finding these processes is of course firstly some desk research targeted requests to organizations policy makers and academics studying these processes are working on these processes on designing momentum them as well as outreach to our innovative citizen participation network democracy r d network. And we've also had an open call for cases or examples of representative delivered processes where everybody could submit one if they knew about it
Miniature Golf (MM #3678)
"The with kevin mason just the other day in nashville. They announced that a company called. Putt shack is coming to town with a high tech. Indoor miniature golf experience it'll be quite the hot spot. I'm sure but. Of course what. I'm thinking about high tech indoor miniature golf. I get to thinking about old school. Low tech miniature golf when i was growing up about but courses were all the rage they were pretty simple all part to nothing fancy but nothing overly exciting then of course there are the miniature golf course you went to usually when you went to the beach which had the big wild animal statues the elephants and the crocodiles and had the wild holes and we could always think that hole in one in and get something special there different kinds of miniature golf courses but they fallen out of favor over the years. I remember in my younger days going back to the nineteen eighties. When video games started out will they opened up little gaming. Arcades at the putt. Putt golf courses. Putt putt golf and games. Nobody cares anymore about the pud cared about the games. Maybe miniature golf is making a comeback. But it's been years since i played.
Singleness: Burden and Gift
"Join us today as we talk about singleness as well as what it means to be single and life in the church join us in having the conversations that shape us greetings tobin. Welcome to another conversation. Come listeners this amount of baptist. Podcast how you doing tobin. I'm doing good. How are you doing doing all right. It's been a tough week for for us. Say you recently lost a loved one in your family anthem. I'm mourning the loss of a friend. So you know different times during cova de wouldn't you say oh for sure. It's definitely a tough time to lose somebody during covid because you don't exactly get to see them funeral plans start looking different and there's a whole bunch of other different support. Networks are starting to look differently than they did before hand right. I was even thinking we talked about death last week. And then it kind of hits you personally so it's very interesting right. It's it's just part of our lives and when we don't think about it don't deal with it sometimes for caught unawares but yeah it's good to have to have that background and even as we are recording this we are almost at where death also plays a central role in the story and to defeat of death. Of course as well so yeah. It's very interesting. Yeah very much so. We had one of our recommendations to talk about singleness this week from a listener. Yeah it's quite the switch from death and there's quite a few ways we can take this conversation right so we'll kind of see how it unfolds. We'll see how the cookie crumbles but we could talk about singleness as an experience of individuals within the western culture right. We're probably talk about in our second half singleness as it relates to biblical values and and and culture and what the bible says there right and then we can also talk about a little bit in the beginning now about how singleness in psychology relate to one another. Yeah that's a good idea. Why don't you start us off with that Even as you're talking about it's interesting to even think about what is singleness right because singleness can be so many different things depending on how you define singleness and not being singled. So what do you think right. So single head is if we were to come up with something like a working definition here i would say. Single single hood is defined by not being in relation with another person. And i think the traditional idea of cygnus is in a romantic setting okay and you had some statistics on singleness in canada. As well which. I found fascinating i did and when i read these statistics. They're not exactly using the same definition. I am right and from what i understand. These are talking about single households so in canada. there there was an article in twenty nine thousand nine that wrote that compared to nineteen eighty six in two thousand sixteen. We had approximately double the amount of people who lived alone and so that means that we have about four million canadians across canada. Who who are single. Who who live alone and now with someone who provides that romantic so seventy percent of the four million have previously been in a relationship which would include widowed divorced or separated by any other means twenty percent of this four million are currently in a relationship with somebody but they just don't live in the same household right and then fifty percent of these individuals also have a child. Roughly speaking two million canadians live in a single parent or guardian household and are pulling triple or quadruple duty in order to support and care for the children or the dependence and simply don't have the same resources that we do with having an extra person there right fascinating. So when i asked you about the definition singleness you talked about not being in a meaningful relationship or romantic attachment to someone but then as you're giving us each statistics you already seeing a little bit of a clash with how you defined versus how perhaps canada or society defines it right because society defines this as just romantic attachment. I was just thinking about singleness before we even we even talk today and How we just assumed that you have to be part of a meaningful. You have to report a meaningful romantic relationship or attachment in order to not be single whether that's married or living with somebody or at least being boyfriend girlfriend whatever we wanna do whatever we want to call it but the experience of singleness goes beyond just that right. I mean The i was reading some articles about this author deborah hirsch. She's a christian author. She's a little bit out there because she talks about sexuality but she talks about homosexuality is not just a sexual expression within a sexual relationships ship between two bodies but that sexuality transcends also into every relationship we have because we we can't just separate parts of our being. We can't just say this part of me sexual in this. Part of me is relational. And this part of me is spiritual we are one hole and so it transcends. I heard a talk by her. And so she talked about what that means for single people and and celebrate people people who choose to be celebrate in that setting. And that doesn't mean that these people don't need community or meaningful relationships of attachment even if they're not romantic attachments over shirt and i like that idea of the embodied whole as you can't we can't segment like like you said sexual the the spiritual whatever that it all comes together as one person right that being said there are individuals out there who would find they can be in a non sexual relationship. That'd be classically to find a single but aren't troubled by that Right so you're looking at the asexual community where relationships with out that sexual component still fulfilling and meaningful right right and the flip side to that is you have people who have this meaningful community. Who who have lots of deep meaningful attachments to other people but are longing for would consider themselves being single and lonely and longing for a deeper expression for deeper romantic and sexual attachment to someone exactly while there are some that. Do not need that romantic or other person attachment to the same level. There's other people that crave and need it and desire so talk to me a little bit about what that means in terms of how how you live life and how you engage life as a single person. Well okay so growing up in canada as this as a single person who is wanting a relationship and can't find it what is what is that. Psychologically like and i would i have. I think i have a few friends who would fit this category and i just from conversations with them it's not a enjoyable experience Even in my own past bake as someone who from eighteen onwards wanted to have like girlfriends and wanted to be in those in in in relationships with other beings who felt that long. I've had a taste of how powerful that loneliness and that drive four relationship can be right and then there's a certain amount of feeling of rejection and isolation loneliness from not having that being fulfilled so as you're talking my question comes up. What's the. I am trying to word this but where maybe i'm using the wrong words but where does longing turned into obsession or or need so so what i mean by that is can you have that long. Can you desire something and still be content. With present circumstances. I mean that comes down to how you define contentment I would say that if contentment means you're all right with the circumstance. Then no because you still desire that relationship okay We talked quite a number of episodes back about the dark night of the soul right about longing for something how You desire of reality of presence to be with in in my circumstance was to be with god and how reality circumvents that there then becomes a conflict between what is felt. And what is known. That being said you've already touched on this with the obsession component right but then there is also that danger of it becoming an obsession of turning that pain right into something negative such as is found in some communities such as the involuntary salvator the in self community online right and then what you find in those communities is that a lot of this pain and turmoil gets turned outwards against other communities where they start blaming other people and other things for their own loneliness and rejection and in doing so their reactions become a negative coping mechanism an unhealthy behavior to try and alleviate the discomfort or rationalize it so then that goes back to my original question so because because my worry is that that we're kind of setting up a binary in the sense that i want to be in a more committed relationship of one sort or another. Let's call it romantic for for better for lack of a better word. So i want to be under romantic relationship. I'm either in the stage of wanting that and the more i wanted to do the closer i get to it being an obsession in my life or i get it and then i'm fine but there is no room to to to live a. Is there no room then to live a life. That says hey i would really desire this but i will also be content. Happy with where i am right now and and live into that to the fullest. And that's that's tricky because we don't have a lot of social narratives that kind of give us that framework to experience singleness in a healthy way. So if i were to break that down a little bit when we watch movies in rome these romantic movies and stuff. It gives us a lot of even you even say it's either healthier unhealthy. That's not me to judge right now but it still gives you those narratives to kind of go and say oh. This is what it's like to be in relationship. This is how i can experience relationship and and dating and being with another person. We don't have movies about what it's like to be alone at least not popularly right right or if they are they're fairly depressing right. There fairly depressing. It's all about not being in that relationship and own. Maybe i'll get into that relationship. There's the whole trope in the late. Two thousands of the manic pixie dream girl where it's all about these writers hollywood writers that use women and relationships to give men character growth in arcs in the movie right so it's all about being relationship pure like it's not about the expression of singleness as healthy in itself. It's about relationship as fixing your problems so that not then create problematic relationships as well. In the sense that i'm finding all my fulfillment than in that relationship once. I do find a relationship where i where i haven't grown as a person or don't have enough emotional intelligence to be content with the person that i am because the person that i was always looking for someone else to to complete me exactly. It creates problems both in relationships expectations for relationships and for people who also want to enter relationships. Right and even individually it creates a learning process or provides an opportunity for a healthy learning environment. Where you start to empathize with your partner where you can put yourself. In their shoes and learn that your flaws also have to be negotiated with their flaws and that there's a balancing act and interpersonal dynamics. Come in and i mean that turns even so now. We're talking about dating but that that that's the same thing with with friendships as well right. If you're i can see a scenario. I've seen lots of scenarios where where you're not content. You're not necessarily content with who you are and so you're you're expecting a lot of out of that friendship relationship for your happiness for your contentment even for your self esteem for the way you Assess your own value that kind of stuff And that can even come out in familiar. Familial relationships as well right where you depend. It's about on another to define who you are and to give you that esteem right and so i mean maybe we're getting off track but that's kind of what singleness conversations are in the sense. Is that the healthiest relationships in our lives are are where we have Some sort of independence isn't it. Yeah yeah independence crates freedom. Authenticity for who you are. In relation to the overall relationship that being said we also live in a society that needs us to be in relationship so to further expand on this point there is there has been studies. I was just scrolling passively I love read it i. I'm on it all day while just pathway scrolling on read it and they were talking about how people live longer when they're in hell in healthy relationships. Oh interesting and lots of articles in the medical community about how people who come in with their partners rent have better treatment results and partly to have somebody to talk to and somebody else to gather information. Yeah whatever the reason is another person there right even just as a tax bonus is is beneficial. So we have. We live in a society that set up for couples and yet the dangerous. become too codependent. And while there's this whole codependence piece talked about but then how as a single person do you live right right so if your approach this as as a single person you see the i live in a society that needs couples that needs you know somebody to stay home and clean the house or look after the kids while somebody else needs to go work. How do i be both people. Yeah or even attach detaches. I think in our society we attach maturity to to relationships as well right so a part of adulting is to be in a meaningful relationship. I always found that whole areas adulting if being an adult but somehow of verb but anyways You know like you are considered writes so you are considered to be a more mature adults in comparison to other people your age if you're in a meaningful relationship and on top of that if you do certain things if you have a certain job if you have a house and if you have kids right over sure i even feel that in school like what. I'm twenty five now. But because i'm married all of a sudden that puts me in a whole nother brand right of society all of a sudden i'm more mature i'm responsible and i'm sure if i had kids out even put me in another bracket above 'cause now i'm looking after little right little little children but as as we're talking i'm just wondering if we wouldn't have a healthier society if we we would learn what it looks like to live healthily in singleness for a time of our lives even just a how we talk about singleness it would be helpful for the individuals who are signal Because we are seeing a rise in people who live alone or who aren't conventionally married or unconventionally being with somebody else and just to harry healthier narratives for them to us and to understand themselves and even understand ourselves with. Kate will greatly benefit us as a community as a as a broad social community as christians and canadian. A do well. Let's transition a bit into the bible here. where So where have if. I'm a single person. And i wanted and i'm and i'm just lonely as all can be. Have you found that. Most people find their strength. I think were most people go in terms of the bible. At least we can talk about how we talk about church. How about single isn't church. And how we treat single people insertion. That's a separate thing from how the bible talks about singleness. I mean jewish culture. Very much thought that you had be married that that's just you know that that's the purpose of your life is to be married if you're mad at your purposes to have a have a wife so that your wife can have children and and your family line keeps going and if you if you were a woman you know your goal was that for your family to find to find the man or family who would take you i mean as a patriarchal society is but there is no. I don't know if there's a real allowance The only time there is conversation is about widows right and how you treat widows and so in that sense. The old testament is much more progressive than the surrounding cultures of its time and makes allowance for widows and treats them well and in that sense even relationships are still political. Yeah in that. It's not about so much being with somebody else. As it is a way to further your lineage as a way to get some gain right and not saying that there isn't a component. Alright love between why. Perhaps there is some counter cultural stories even embedded within the old testament to see the story of of ruth and her mother-in-law. Ruth naomi. i mean ruth's story restoring does end in marriage but it's very much naomi who makes it happen and they owe me you know. She kind of becomes a mother kind of surrogate mother to son that ruth bears. I mean that's how the story ends in the bible. Were supposed to see that image. Even though she's not married so it's a fairly counter cultural story there is rahab the prostitute who becomes part of israel. There's the story of tamar who forces kind of what we would call a constitutional crisis. It's not a constitutional crisis but it's a crisis of the law for for for one for for one of the for one of the men that was supposed to marry her. Her father in law's supposed to marry her according to the law because her husband has passed away but he refuses and so eventually she she forces her way into this. There's the story of astor who who kind of becomes part of this abusive kings. Well she's the she becomes the queen to disabuse of king and rescue the people of israel. I think all of those are somewhat counter cultural in the sense that that they're describing to us non normative relationships within that paradigm but also some of these women become not all of them that i mentioned but some of them are part of the story of jesus right so matthew mentions for women in the genealogy of jesus and even though clearly there had to be men for those four women to have borne children has not the men that are identified. It's the women that are identified. And so it already kind of focuses more on the person under relationship that that they were in jesus himself never married according to the gospels. All of a sudden you have these single people doing things right. i mean we. We don't we don't know of mary. Martha lazarus or married. We never find out. They are just people right. The assumption probably is that they would be. But but even when lazarus dies. we don't hear about his wife morning right. We we hear about his sisters. Mary magdalene she married. We don't know right. I mean you go down the list of all these characters and somehow we don't often find out about their familial relationships and isn't there a passage in there somewhere about how it it in summary. It's like get married if you want to. But you know your your relationship with the lord is i and you gotta serve that primary. I corinthians that where it is. I post writing. Yeah i mean. Paul paul is also single. There's a hint there. in first. Corinthians read the passage wrongly sometimes. But there's a hint there. In first corinthians step maybe at one point paul was married and he considers himself a widower. I've never heard preached in church but there is a hint there because he's talking to the widows and widowers and he's co counseling them to stay single and he says be as i am so he identifies himself with them. He doesn't leader. He talks to to what he calls the virgins which would be the single people who are potentially also engaged to be married which is different than the widows widowers and so there he doesn't say as i am because he's not. He doesn't see himself like that. He sees himself like a widower. So but in that passage. Basically what paul is saying. Yeah Marriage is a good thing and if you want to be married be married and if you don't wanna be married you have a gift to bring to the conversation as well and the way the we paul seasons in that conversation is gift that single people bring is is an attachment to church and into the work of god. I mean this comes out of paul of paul paul's idea anyways is that jesus coming back soon. You know. And so he saying why. Why waste your time getting married. We have so much stuff to do. Let's go get working and proclaiming. Jesus christ but that's the gift that single people that that's the gift that he sees himself bringing to the church as well right. I'm single so i can go and serve god and i can go and proclaim and so So he very much kind of trying to tell people. Stay in whatever situation you are. Don't get divorced if you're married. Stay married and have sex. He literally. I mean literally what he says. Don't don't all of a sudden now because you think that you're that you're christian. Stop having sex. If you're in a marriage you know. There's no you're not holier if you're in a celebrate marriage with somebody then if you're in a sexual relationship with somebody and so That's kind of his frame of mind right and so what. I take that passage. Don't i think what we should take a passage is that there's legitimate calling and gift to singleness within our congregations and we haven't really acknowledged that ever or very rarely and as as you're talking here. This is reminding me of a story that. I read quite quite a quite a few years ago when i was taking a family and marriage class. I believe that was the course. I was in for this. Where was talking about An evangelical preacher who was off doing missionary work off off in the boonies somewhere and then his daughter right was or his family was having trouble and distress and their daughter. I think even commit suicide over his lack of involvement. Yeah this is a story that i read in a book called sweet surrender by dennis hiebert and the question raised is what becomes more important family or missionary work right well. My critique on this was that he shouldn't this this preacher guys should not have even gotten married in the first place if he couldn't have committed to the relationship as a whole right right. And you know. I i mean before we talk. Today i went and reread some of this stuff. And i corinthians seven and you you can go and read yourself there paul saying that. If you're married you are committing to that relationship and you need to give it a significant amount of energy. That is your calling by god within marriage so you you know the the the calling that god puts on you cannot supersede that calling that god has put on you for that marriage. Because you're asked to be in this relationship of mutual self giving love so you have to kind of buy into that but if you don't need to be in a relationship like that then you can give some of that energy to the work at hand or two one way to one way to to translate it. There has to present necessities. Paul says And so that's that's how paul would put would address it. I don't think paul would understand. I don't think. Paul understand our fascination with saying hey To be to be a good human. I need to be part of a relationship. I need to be in a marriage any to have kids. And then i'm going to dedicate all my energy to my work or to my church. You know for pastors or or to this and ev- this relationship that i've committed to is going to take second place to another relationship i've inserted into it and then using jesus own words to kind of To support that is weird. I don't think paul would ever do that exactly. And i think we put this pressure on missionary work that It becomes the one and only calling for a christian to be part of god's works in the world. Yeah and what. Paul is trying to say i think is hey. If you're single now you can do mission or missionary work. You're not attached to the work of your marriage covenant relationship so why not not stay the way you are. He's trying to tell these people in corinthians why not stay the way you are and do missions work. If that's what you feel like god is calling you to see in our mind. We have turned completely around. We often how we are. We have such distrust of single people especially single men that we say. Hey no-no before you can do ministry worker before you can do missionary work and this is very much agenda conversation because it's not the other way around. We don't distress single women we asked him. and then. So that's an noticing this even as we speak right here. I've been hesitant to talk about this call. That paul has and says. Hey you're single and you can work for the church because to me. It sounds abusive. Make single women do often. We send them out to be missionaries. We asked him to serve. You don't have children. you can do this right. We don't do the same thing for single men or very scared of single men and if want men to do any kind of ministry. We want men to be married and have children because that safety as so. That's that's even the gender dwayne which we approach singleness right. And i think you're in a very unique position at thirty to even speak about that because of your work now with Generation rising coming up and with your older work at in out of town or you did that sort of abroad. Work right where you've seen students and individuals who either as a couple or who are dating or who are single going off and doing this work in in in africa or or wherever you sent them thinking of even thinking about who hires churches in terms of pastors right. It's okay for youth pastor. It's okay for a youth pastor to be single sometimes right because they're young Oftentimes if men right they're young. That's alright we prefer a single woman or a married woman to our children's ministry because they're just more approachable to children. Once you're past you get into a more. An associate pastor position or a lead pastor position. We really want that pastor to be married whether they're a woman or a man we really would like them to be in a committed relationship because that to us is the highest ideal. The highest value within the congregation. Right i mean. I don't think i've been to a church where we've had a single lead pastor. I have. I have not attended a church like that anyways. No i'm trying to think. I don't think i've ever had lead pastor as a single person. i've had associate pastors. Who were then in a divorce relationship or in a separate relationship right and that could be a whole nother podcasts. But yeah yeah. And i can't speak to their experiences. No no but within at least within the evangelical world that i've grown up in yet it's marriage seems to be this high ideal and so any time we talk about singleness and we talk about singleness even as a calling or as an opportunity We tend to think in our minds we tend to think about singleness calling opportunity for women not so much for men and we also tend to not put enough support around single people So we're tend to not give them the same community and while we say. Hey we value your singleness and if that's what god calls you to. Do we want to embrace that and you you can. You have something to give to us. We still want to celebrate mother's day and church and get frustrated when we celebrate we. Don't we still want to celebrate. Father stay in church and get frustrated when we don't and I can just. I mean i make a point of saying something to that effect every mothers and fathers day and i can just hear the roles you know i know the is aren't actually rolling but i can just hear that there's that pressure on you with the congress within the congregations like there there goes rafael again. Trying to be all politically correct not politically correct. It's an acknowledgment that our humanity is not just defined by our roles as fathers and mothers in within that attached relationship And committed relationship of of of marriage. I mean are not the only vision for for humanity not even in the bible. You know i mean. Let's talk about men. That aren't that that we wouldn't consider being fully men. I mean there's daniel and his three friends there most likely unix. Because that's what would happen in the bible. Once they were once they were taken as prisoners in palace. We have a whole book stories that we love to tell our kids about daniel right and we talk about the end times. We love to go to daniel and talk about you know that kind of stuff. There's there's a whole church in ethiopia that today still claims and traces their lineage. Back to a conversation with an ethiopian eunuch on-road from jerusalem Who's who has converted and baptized than an the ep ethiopian. Church still says. That's where we come from because he goes back right but somehow we've said that the highest ideal value is marriage is is being committed marriage with two children and suburban suburban right. Right right. I mean even within our culture. We do not have father's day and mother's day and a far saying on mother's day or a single people's they right we just don't either and so i would say for maybe the if we were to sum everything up that there's a really deep call. Or there's a really deep spirituality to being single and that there is special and it's needed and it's not any worse of a calling that being said we also need to adjust start cultural narratives and what we say in how we talk. And how he fee with people that needs to shift so that they can also feel that calling especially this has been another episode of the modern anna baptist. Please join the conversation by emailing us. At conversations that shape us gmail.com or joining us on twitter at modern anna baptist. Either way we'd love to hear from you and grow with you and continue to have fantastic conversations.

"Bit different. We usually do let's see we eat and we try our different foods and we're GonNa do here is let's drink we got married she's the head brewer here. Jay. Wakefield she has a put together an assortment of different beers you guys grew in house. Can you walk through the different ones that we're GONNA TASTE ARENA? Let's. Just say all right. So I. When we have is our collaboration with other half's there in Brooklyn they're very good friends of ours and that's one of the things that I love about working in this industry is that we get to collaborate with our friends we go there maybe not during the times of Kobe. Kobe did. We always get to hang out so. They came here I this back in sixteen or seventeen. I can't remember if it was the end of the beginning of those years. And it's not a normally with them. We do stoute's everyone that comes here always wants to do a stout with us but we wanted to do and I ta so it's called Jujitsu. Juice. Juice. Yes. It's the label is actually an other house label that we're able to use. And it is a New England Sti- PA so it's Hazier. It's not as clear as what you would normally have your. Correct. It's also not hopped the same. So this is. Dry hopped. So during fermentation during fermentation toward the end of fermentation we start adding hops to it for. Air Matic. Purposes. So in this year in particular, we have Citra we have Morello and we have a very Mandarin Ah. So, the nose on this is going to be a lot of tropical fruits and then on your palate, it's going to be juicy. It's not going to be Palette crushing and bitter like a West Coast style would. Maybe, not, floor. More bitter forward. This is more air matic juicy. But still you get some bitterness so we will try. So. Basically. When you taste it, you get a front kind of that bitterness, but then it finish is smooth with the smell the aromatics of of that hop flat passion, fruit lots of citrus, right so this this you get that off from the hops, which is something that I find to be incredible. It's like when you're tasting wine, they tell you oh, well, you're going to get. Of Blackberry or hints of you know like Earth's arranged. So this is cool because it's the hops. If you put them in a different times, you get different results like the next one we have here, which is kind of like an orange color. Is Hatred actually. It is something that we came up with. Because as you well know online a lot of people like to spew things a correct and what do you drink when you're hating history? So it's a fruit punch inspired berliner vice. So, it's our the nose on it is. Tropical fruit. Very fruity reminiscent of like Hawaiian Punch or. Correct. But. Then it hits you with a lactobacillus which is what sours the beer. Okay, now we're now we're going to chemistry lactobacillus. Obviously, you hear the lactose in the front does that have to do with east? Bacteria lactobacillus you finding your rookie `bacterial beer they have no idea right? You Find It in Yogurt, right? So. Completely. You can digest it normally it's not a problem, but it is what's ours the beer, and then obviously the fruit comes afterward you have you know oranges, Cherries Pineapple. So the sour. Makes you want to go in for. Right. You get this the fruity you got lemonade you get citrusy. It hits you right here in the draw. And then I'll send you want to go back for more. So the Ph on this is lower right because it's our slope. Sour, candy it's It's any yogurt. That's incredible and what hops does this because obviously, it's a crew. So the US on this international bettering units is what that stands for. You don't want high. On this. So the on air. Correct. Yeah. You don't want to hop forward beer. You don't want to. It's not what it's for. Right you need a little bit of bettering just to get it and then. Let the sour, really be the. Okay. So this next one has a beautiful like Ruby, color? Fuchsia few show. This is.

"I was I was making good money You know I have a graduate degree in accounting. And I basically, it was I hated sitting behind a desk crunching numbers I mean I did it for fifteen years and I was like this is killing me. This is not what I WANNA do not love doing this every single day of my life and meanwhile, I, actually enjoyed home brewing I enjoyed making beer and you know when I would take it to festivals and home brewing events and stuff it was very well received, and then you have the backing of people coming in and go nee you should do your own thing, i. mean. This was way before we're giving give me a timeframe when what is I would say two thousand. Two thousand eleven. I started getting that kind of nudge and push, and I in two thousand eleven I would take a week or two while still getting paid because I couldn't just leave my job at the time and I would go and take a week of vacation and go work at Cigar, city at work there learn some things at and I did that for about two years and then finally two, thousand, thirteen I'm just like you know what? If I'm GonNa do this I gotta quit so I quit and Ju- like I think May of two thousand thirteen? And then worked for full year basically with those gusts. That's incredible. came back in the wet directly to cal. Forty It didn't didn't just redid the whole thing like you said, grassroots going back to okay. I know how to homebrew like I've done a successful it's not it's it. Is the same, but it's not the same I mean it's such a grander scale elements like basically thinking you can cook at your. House and then go to restaurant that's not And that's that's the interesting part when people have hobbies all the time I like I like to do this I like to do that I like to homebrew doesn't mean I'm going to open up potentially where I famous right and we're kindred spirits in the same way where. The media game is very similar where you have a show you have a product whether it be a youtube channel whether it be a radio podcasts. Anything. Now, you know how it is thousand different things you can be famous on you have a product that you think okay I'm happy doing this but how do I turn this into money right? Like how is how is the first initial thing of I'm going to go to a festival I'm actually going to sell something that I made. A lot of it on your own dime in the beginning especially Broin I mean, I gave away a lot of beer and Minnesota Selena's more of a passion. Thanks. So it was really my own investment into just giving stuff away in seeing people enjoy it. I mean I would bottle stuff and give it away to friends in the net stuff with somehow end up in California got dudes in California drinking this homebrew that I made in the word kind of spread from there but it all came. Full. CIRCLE WHEN When it went to time to raise money I mean I had fun of my own My partner is my father is well. So we had a you know a good chunk of everything to do the berate, but I also wanted to get the. Community involved. So we did a wasn't a kickstarter with different site, but it was the same idea crowd in this crowd sourcing crowdfunding and I think the largest funding to date back. Then I think Arizona Wilderness had done like forty thousand dollars and then modern times, which is a massive story. Now, I think they had raised like fifty thousand dollars. Or I'm sorry sixty, five thousand raised back then and Okay, then all shoot for sixty, you know sixty, we'll call it safe because modern times had this massive plan and I was like, okay well, we will start with sixty and. We blew past sixty, thousand, the first eight hours and we went on to raise a hundred thousand dollars what Just, word of mouth like I've had a mouse hype in Oh because I was working Cigar City Brewing Beers Cigar city they allowed me to brew my own beer. Our City in those years were on it festivals such as apoe. Back in back in the day, there was fruit in the room There are other places I was I had brewed with my guys at cycle brewing and made beers there. So the word was out but. The real exposure was growing. It's Gar City and putting those beers on draft would've voted for the road and people would like bananas I. Mean We started with one beer that we still have today I think it was very first day. This was two, thousand, nine of. And It was a pink beer and no one had ever seen grow. So it tapped out I think in like four minutes what people would bananas because it was the first fruited berliner that anybody had ever done in the country. Okay. I, want to stay right there. That's what makes you guys different is that people if they've never experienced your flavoring door style of beer, can you explain for the people that only know beer as of Miller lives bud light all the same ship that everybody drinks Macaroni beer explain like what your style is in. What makes you unique were always people were cigar city stone recycle everyone was allowing you to do something that you can't just walk off the street and be like, Hey, I want to prove you're right. No, I mean I had garnered basically a following an I had a very good relationship with Joey Renner..

"Who is not feeling so well today she's a little under the weather would appear Alison how are you? Are you hanging in there? I'm good. Are you good good you by the way you would. Think came down. You hate that game I manage just like annoying you good. Good you. Good. It's just. Do, you think anyone knows what you're talking about or I think everybody knows what I'm talking about Eland. Talking about. Now. All right. We have a fun episode today. I think we have a lot on selling sunset ellas has a recipe. Allison has a product Mr Kraft's where do you want to start today? Thing we just start with selling sunset. So I watched all twenty four episodes all three seasons this show purely because of billy's lightning round recommendation. Two weeks ago on episode one of BBB. and. They might have ads get don't worry guys. It's tremendous. Did it, take you to watch the twenty four episode, three days I knocked it out on a weekend also and I'm not even GonNa take all the credit for because the one that suggested it to me, and here's the weird thing about it. Alison herself hasn't watched all the episodes yet, but she was telling me what a great show it is I told you a great shortage and somehow the only one that hasn't seen all the episodes yet alison I really need you to get to the finish line though because the last episode is the best episode of the series in is complete trash though I did say that. When I, no no. I mean it's not. I mean. Is Fake you know. Definitely. Think no, she described it to me is like the hills but grandma tour in real estate. Rather it too is like it's like a different style of reality TV from the Bravo and the bachelors, and the challenge is the world because every single one of those episodes ends with a distinct cliffhanger. This is all so monotone that it's like there's no cliffhanger anything. Every episode is like part of one larger season like the only cliffhangers the end of season one the season too. So you can sit there and waste four hours at a time watching the stuff. Did you like the homes part of it or now? So learned into the drama actually that's one of my notes I like cozier home. These modern lines I guess it's a certain type of person that is buying a house in the Hollywood hills. I found many of the homes including the forty four million dollar home including the eighty million dollar home to be ugly to be homes that I would not want for that for that. Yeah I was GONNA. Say you probably don't need to worry about what an eighty eight million dollar house looks like because you're not gonNA run into I don't I mean unless really takes off I don't think you're going to have to worry about an eighty million dollar home but ugly Yeah I mean it's not obviously the properties are spectacular. The locations are amazing but every single I guess that's just the style of property the Oppenheim group cells. But they're all so so modern. And, that's just not the type of House that I would want where everything is like a flat line V, they're like white or black marble. They're all very sterile feeling is it's the best is the way I described the homes we what would your dream home be? Exposed brick guy where would it be I'm still figuring that out Alison I'm still figuring myself out. But so here's the question to everybody knew have she doesn't care about your officers. Care about your answer, but I answer to this way. You two million dollars. You can only use the money towards a home an apartment like some board ever whatever it is. You can only use it towards a place to live where would it be voter? Talk. Forever. Two million dollars doesn't get me on even on the board for any of the houses and selling sunset not even houses in the valley. Knock Los Angeles out of out of the picture is five better five, five works better I think you gotta go southern California give me a little Manhattan beach with cozy outdoor space, lot of natural light some beams. For All of Windows, a nice kitchen that's open with a gas stove. That was also one of my big problems with if I'm buying a ten million dollar house and it has an electric stove top, you've gotta be kidding, where's your exposed brick? Is it somewhere? Yeah. You know if I go to California it's probably not going to be exposed brick. That's that's much more of an east coast occurrence in a row homes and apartments, but I could live without it for the for the views gas stove thing is actually something that bothered allison because she texted me the exact quote from one of the Amazon. Fire Line was great. You don't even cut that. LYDON's funny. Why do you keep turning off your camera and getting up and walking away? It's making it very difficult to figure out when you're there when you're not there what's going on exactly. And now she's anyway alison shocked by how mean some of the people are telling sunset like I can't get over how mean Davina and Christina. It's just a weird bizarre person like she just so bizarre like she even in the room because she's like looking at everybody and she's just like I need to sell the seventy five, million dollar home. Horrible. So I, if you ever nickname characters in your own head as you're going. But I think she legitimately looks like an evil version of Mandy Moore. She's definitely evil just their names. Bring their actual. Names. Extra become friends with them in my head and I'm like. Nickname for my evil friends. The funniest story I watched off Salah. Celebrity Rehab, and Mary. Carey was on the Shell and I feel like she's my friend and the next day or a couple of days later I walk ins get a haircut and Mary who's sitting on this thing hating it was like how are you? It didn't Register that don't know her we porn star I, Dunno you this and then I thought. When he said that I was thinking of Mary Berry who's like the SWEET GRANDMA FRAU British baking show I was really. Pitching something entirely different hold on a second wait a second. You're watching celebrity rehab yet airy. Carey. was on celebrity on it. Put them in real life. I've read Sir recognized her from the show but I hit my mind I thought I knew her because. There are so I mean. Did you guys watch. Oh wait hold on. I've never seen in process she was just. Getting your hair haircut in Boca somewhere that you ran into the Miami the Miami there was like a couch sitting there and I was like hey. Jews like, Yeah I. Don't know you and Meh. Data for the Disney who she is now I'm Dr. Just like went to the person at the front to check in who was it was I was very was there another exchange that was it? That was it? I was horrified because I was like, yeah, I don't know her I, know her. Show where she's Like Part of her addiction is what she does for a profession. So like there I don't know it was very embarrassing. So. Yeah. I am now less embarrassed I've nicknames for selling on certain people or thinking that you're friends with them. Yes I am I'm definitely friends with Christina to be. Good called. The one that you said looks like mandate Martin Niagara An. Evil Moore if you're GONNA catch up on selling sunset try your best not to Google this show because what's going on now it's become a Netflix's hit and people are looking into some of the storylines and starting to kind of tear things down. So there's lots of stories out there what's real what's not real and they're tracking down marriage licenses and are these brothers fighting So I think Charlie. Kravitz has a whole list of rumors and just things that have been found out about the show after watching this show that May or may not ruin the show for you. By the way this week Big Brother Nicola was out tyler when the H. H. in Memphis is the work starring. We've covered big brother we can continue now. Okay. So actually I lie is one that that Billy told me that's not accurate from the show an actually ask, allison? Andy Lists. Google..

Yesterday. Is wanted to get in the footnotes. That was very cool when the reds went to the cut after is he's The stirs last year Barry Larkin era. anyways recipe pizza. Can Ask you a question he lives before we get to the recipe really quick. Have you caught up on big brother or now? So Christmas wants you saved the nominations of Nicola and David Okay. We can go the recipe. All right. Respiratory. Question. You did ask cut up there was technically a question. You've asked me many times if I ever repeat recipes. I'm going on like the third weekend five that I've made this because it's so good. I feel like people have a lot of tomatoes right now. 'cause a Lotta people started gardening over the summer is a quarantine activity. So this will use up lots of tomatoes. So it is Bruce Shehdeh or Bruce. Gada chicken. Exactly. Very Italian pronunciation. So is Bruce scattered up pronunciation? Pronunciation. Home Very. Abrasive that. Have, a lot of people started gardening. Maybe. It's up in the northeast. We got we got some friends brought over some tomatoes today. I feel like that was a thing in the spring. People were stuck at home in they were looking for something to do. So they started gardens now everyone has. Like a lot of Zucchinis and peppers and tomatoes. Remember us at the beginning of this whole thing. So much fun we're making baking. Bags in tick some banana bread and. Find some for the recipe we brisket chicken scattered check in. So I took three chicken breasts and I put them in a baking dish I season to them salt pepper garlic powder in I have a subscription to a Milkman, which is the most quaint thing to come out of quarantine. Truly crevices about this. So there's a cheese of the week. There's also a yogurt of the week, a Granola of the week, all sorts of great stuff. So the cheese of the week was Mozzarella, not like fresh Mozzarella, but the kind of Montreal like a block of it. Yes. I'm not saying it with an authentic Italian accent. So I sliced one to actors per chicken breasts of Mozzarella and bake debt forever line you need to bake it has like twenty five minutes at. Or twenty five or fifty years. and. Then while it's baking, I chopped up a bunch of little grape tomatoes with some olive oil basil salt pepper and a lot of garlic minced garlic let it all the flavors marinate chicken came out for the tomatoes on top so good and fresh and delightful. To use them local tomatoes in some. Milkman cheese that sounds so awesome. How'd you get a Milkman like the the advertiser you know someone that knows the Milkman Service Sir looking this up because i. Wanted to get this now, but it's only Connecticut Ohio Right. So minus two central Connecticut called the modern Milkman and I just saw a bunch of people feel like Charlie him. I just avenue of people that I know it was only in select towns in they were putting it on instagram. I was really jealous the chocolate mountains, mazing and. Yeah. They finally expanded to my town, and now I participate in the modern milk Nancy get like the glass bottles or it work and do they wear like the old like many costumes or no? I think that they rotate people in like one of them has a hat that they wear some time. That I love that. That's actually one of the great things that's come out of quarantining CSA's and farm shares. Milkman didn't like high quality products and not having like clam lettuce. Because it's so much better. Yeah it's so good. So you can get a half share full share so you can get four products are six or eight, and yeah, it's delightful. My favorite thing that they do is there yogurt and granola their spectacularly we live very different lives where you're getting milk delivered to you and I'm going on the Burki APP getting coupons for Wapner.

I don't want to give up on this whole BBB thing. Because I feel like this could go somewhere. So just right off the top, the nuggets lead the jazz one Oh in the playoffs. So we've got basketball out of the way. Now we can move on from that big brother we can get to later we have products review today we have a recipe to talk about today Charlie Kravis is great at doing impressions. We have all kinds of stuff going on today that may be. Or maybe we won't get to I don't even know where you guys want to start. Where do you guys WanNa? We have the lauper taste test, but allison's not here. Yet I don't think he was has a whopper so we may have to push the tastes to another week. Where do you guys want to start today? I'm GonNa Start with one thing that we talked about last week, which is the idea of Lebatardshow yelp. ooh And I want to thank the listeners because those people rated R. podcast. As the number, one rated podcasts the week. So you are the Lebatardshow. Yelp, you were the one giving us the five star rating. So thank you all. grads to you give yourself a little pat on the back right now. You did it. We love you. Thank you by the way how did that happen? It has to just be the day that we came out and they sent out an email and the rankings next day and it was just luck right I. Don't question how it happened I accept that it happened and then Irene the podcast. I think it was allison because we struggled mightily when we didn't have allison and all of a sudden she's here and we were number one. So Charlie. You have a product. You want view this week. Yes sure do This is an audio platform so you cannot see what I'm doing right now but I'm lifting my right leg up and I'm gonNA show you the pair of socks I'm wearing and they are cap compression socks we'll see. I guess in the last six months or so released a pair of eighties inspired compression socks. Let me tell you these socks not only. Do they look amazing but they feel amazing very simple design a base, a white usually two stripes I think you can. You can visualize sort of classic eighties. Look I'm talking about. And I used these socks for everything I play golf on the socks I work out in the sucks I just wear the socks around the house where socks for a night out I did their extremely versatile socks and I think if you go on this EP compression website right now. They they might be running a CEO only socks, but they're like the Lou crew length socks and my only complaint register is with CPA's like website and they're back ordering process because. I don't understand how warehouses work and everything and I've I've probably talked a about this. How do we feel like this segment's going? Well so I, think it's going pretty well, but I actually pivot to explain to you guys actually have a complaint about said socks first of all a little back story on this is I'm the follower Charlie. Charlie gets into these fads and then halfheartedly want to support him troll him or just join him. If it's a good fats, I saw these socks like he's socks are dope. I bought the socks. CPI compression socks they compress to well, they hurt my toes. They keep my toes too snug in too tight. Everybody does can't wear them. Much of these socks cost. Is Thirty Bucks Sound Right. For. One hair talks we'll their compression socks. They're like they're they're hot. No no who just had the exact same. Hold on Sunday socks that are sized to small they'll compress your feet. Oh No, no, no, no no. No I'm sorry I'm sorry. These socks are nineteen dollars there might be on sale. Not even nineteen for good pair compression socks. Socks. Say My toes are too delicate for the socks. Do you think this is up? Yes, she actually size beat. Do you have a circulation issue that maybe she get looked at by Dr? No but like the Nike socks, the stand socks, the indeed sites they feel great. It's funny because they do like eighty socks I immediately in reminiscing about like my dad mowing the lawn or something in similar socks in those socks seemed very. Loose start, they're just act so. Aesthetically I would not think that they were very tight compression socks. And so that is actually over. Like the last five to ten years where I guess I'd probably buy clothes for longer than five or ten years. I. Don't know why I teed up like that I've. Come across people that are making eighty style socks and you want to buy them. But they're like what you're saying he lays these super loose tube socks. I can't do anything with these right like where look cool. But it just throwing away and couple months because they're terrible. That's why I love these socks so much because their functional, but they're also stylish. So this this podcast surprising not brought to you by compression socks, but it probably should be sure hope we're not brought to you by Bomba today. Yeah that'd be that'd be real shame. I feel like fad pod didn't really take off this week. You'll we tried I don't know and I wanted to talk candles but allison hasn't shown up yet because she has this ridiculous thing on canal's that I don't WanNa get into because I buy these discount. Discount. What are you guys pay for candles? I don't. Know Bilal my girlfriend Kerry buys candles and makes the apartments and delightful, and so whatever she chooses as her choice for the the apartment I am down with my wife just bought a ton of candles. She bought a Campbell, the looks like an orange slinky it starts on one side and it goes down that like loops around like a roller coaster that POPs up on the other side it's like two candles at one. And I think that was a very expensive candle but I'm not really like a candle guy like I. don't I I like when candles are lit but I don't like I don't go out of my way by candle. So so billy, what what are. What's your like Ideal Price Range for a candle then well, no what happened was is that I thought I was giving them a hot tip and I thought I was being nice guy knows okay. Guys Bath and body works cancer are on sale. They're only eleven.

He then took it upon himself to reach out to these people that did something that he asked them to do, and he said go to Burger King, you can spend up to fifty bucks and I'm going Bend Mo-, you fifty dollars so you can throw yourself Burger King feast, and then they send him pictures at Charlie James gave away fifty dollars at Burger King, the two random guys because they re tweeted something he did. Okay. So how'd you? Hanker. Here I was actually. I know guys for next week. Going to like Uber Eats you guys, Burger King while we're doing this so that you can have burger king so. This guy ability I think you need to have a shake Shack Burger because you've never had A. Never. Shake. The. House. Shake shack like twice a week to the studio. That shakes out there was a shake shack. They used to have a ping pong table like sunset or something like one. Share. You said you've never had jake chuck. Okay. Well, I'm only. Record. Shaped. underrated. So that. That's actually funny because my new order shake shack now is instead of doing burger and fries is doing I get a dog and I get the little chicken bites switching. Grade. I stakes acts like low key good at chicken. Yeah. That's that's what made me want the sandwich but I'm just GonNa make me. Let me just tell you what this guy. This guy ordered his ease names at C. D. Danny da in Ip on twitter and he got a ten piece chicken nuggets with honey mustard sauce a four piece mozzarella sticks and a piece Jalapeno Bites. He got four chocolate chip cookies a big king acceler I don't even know what that is pickles like another type of burglar alarm, a large doctor pepper, another big excel, and another large. Dr Pepper and that was only twenty nine dollars and thirty cents. You can get a lot of bang for your buck, the King Dallas like to entrees and many appetites ourselves bid they have like an eight piece chicken nugget now Burger King that's like. A dollar for eight chicken nuggets. It's incredible I'm going after now on until you all the deals king has going on right now they're not as sponsored by the way. I, don't know why we're doing this but I think it's probably it's pretty obvious which charlie grabs his ideas working well, the best list for. The rest of offerings, I love you the rest of them. But that was that was a great debut of the food pause. Don't forget guys. We're GONNA get two big brother shooting because. and. We'll get to that I. only have one two. Three more ideas I'm gonNA chop off I gotta be honest with you. I think my favorite is still fad pod. Really. Even? Though we do all this food. What what's next on the list? Two of these are bad ideas. One of them I think is a kind of good idea. Let's hear. Pogo with the BAD I. Everyone knows about. Drunk history ever knows it in quarantine. A little bit more you're at home, you're.

"Now I think back on, it can't even imagine we brought over a reason artist wanted to come to south beach. So all we did was I think we just paid for the materials and he works for eight weeks during murals up and down the blaze it was. It was really ridiculous. We also have the concept where it was an art gallery because we were surrounded by so much art so. So the restaurant was a gallery, the tables were painted by the local artists. You know it had all that stuff going forward as far as the food goes, we always wanted to create a Miami fusion stink. We actually called it. New Miami cuisine are because the new fusion was just starting to come some of the chefs in the early eighties will putting that together Norman. Vani down in Key West. There was little movement. Here are some Cuban guys, but really the godfather of in wavell Latin cuisine is Douglas Rodriguez who wasn't Up Chef, the restaurant and really taking the that direction. We given direction. We told them. We want. We want to do a new Miami cuisine, which was what human food makes. Little. Jewish food makes a little bit of Latin culture. Florida to what was here. That's crazy because. You get into weapon cafe. Are you cooking at that point? Are you trying to? Beginning I didn't cook beginning at. You're just a finance guy I'm gonNA make things business. We were just we were like from households and one after about seven months into the shift walks on a Saturday night. and. That's when we went out and got Douglas Rodriguez, and after that experiencing that trauma, I never left the kitchen again there for working for two years and Douglas, and I worked really close together. He was already experienced. Who's twenty one years old that God. Yeah. Like there's there's no matter. Twenty one that right now that can be replicated because the industry is dominated by people in their thirties, forties and fifties, right? Like you can't break in and be an executive chef, some more at twenty one. Never never end. There's too much capital involved to try and start up a best buy. You're saying there's no way works winwood. There's no way works in brickell. There's no way works on the beach, line. To have two guys in their twenties start. A restaurant and actually have A and B in a in a legitimate spa like early south beach. I don't know I mean maybe if you went out to some of the outskirts of O- of Miami where they're still real estate that that can be had, you'd have to start off in a in a neighborhood that has started to gentrify yet right because once it's already starting gentrify like when we started today. Was An area that was low socioeconomic. All the sudden got bought up by a ton of developers and then through what billions of dollars into creating it, what it is as an arts and Cultural Mecca for Miami and when people hear that they think of the winwood walls, they think Oh my God. That's incredible that used to be nothing eight years ago, nine years ago, it was nothing and then all the sudden it exploded so. That's that's to me. That's incredible that you guys had that vision here in south beach and everybody worldwide thinks the South Beach says, oh. My God like that's where I need to be. There's people just naked everywhere. People drinking people doing drugs. There's it's just you know the wild wild west and it wasn't that for a while like you guys really brought in in that new era of what South beach could have been. So let's get back to your journey, your chef being at. The web cafe. What's the next move? You realize? I'm never leaving the kitchen I love cooking. What's the next move? I left the kitchen. After one bank failed the kitchen, I went to work for a restaurant company because I had to get a job I moved to New York. New York because somebody actually hired me to help them open up a restaurant in new. York? The somebody opened up a web cafe in Soho, so basically took. This is so good that we want to move. Mark there either but. But it was a cool experience and then I met my wife there. And she was a Juanita from Miami and met in Soho in new. York. She came to visit us through. France, and then through the ninety s I came back and we had children and went back into regular business I was always somehow involved in the restaurant business somehow or another either had a sandwich shop or gourmet Some kind of Cuban shop was always in the restaurant business through the nineties and even in two thousand and when I came back to Lincoln. Road I partnered up with Mitchell Kaplan back on Lincoln road. Right next door. We were twenty years later, right? And completely changed cafe books in books. Well. Our rent, the rent went up about fifty times. That's how change and you know there was tons of people. I always I would tell people the regular be to. Pay, the right now it's forty grand and we have no problem paying the rent. We had a really good run for ten years. Lincoln road from two thousand and four to two, thousand thirteen now. So you get to Bodega. How did that journey go from? Obviously, you're doing stuff books and books. Holes for a while like how did you transition and come to dig and really be the sole behind what the menu looks like because we're going to taste the food and a little bit and I've been here what probably fifteen times and every time I leave satisfied everything. I have on the menu is incredible. There's nothing that I would say I'm not going to do that again, like everything is fire. How did you make that transition from what you were doing kind of Solo to jumping in with menin Bodega and all this stuff? When I left books. Lincoln. Road was really transitioning and I wanted to get out and mister car the books guys didn't so I left and I joined minute hospitality that was about to open Bodega. This.

"I gotTa pick the Detroit teams. Every time I had no idea that the lions were also rigged. I didn't know until later myself, so it was crazy. The things I learned throughout this book. Is there any secret levels in NBA? James that people didn't know about that. They weren't able to access to no secrets. No secret courts or anything like that there was the what's funny is the midway team pitched a mortal Kombat court many years later, fenby showtime towards the late nineties, and of course the NBA. We don't want anything to do with that but with the midway team would do is they would always try to. Play around with things in. Different things in the game. Of course, a secret characters very famous and that started off as a joke. Ask you know that was where you can put your initials and you can play as developers head well. What's crazy? Is that one of the things that didn't make into the original original? NBA Jam was Bart Simpson in Godzilla. A secret characters, so yeah, yeah, there's footage out there this too. I can send you this. This later on, it's pretty cool, so what the midway developers would do is once. They're all. Don't make this game. They're like one ourselves this game to basically memento. They don't know. How will I'm jams GONNA. Do this is gonNA. Be something fun so when they go. Santa The blue screen against the blue screen kind of way, the junior would do, and they had their photograph there had has photographed from all the different angles. And then somebody grabbed Bart Simpson toy and brought it on over and put in front of Cameron rotated Get all the different angles said, and they did the same thing with God zillah figure that was lying around a joke, and then I think somebody midway came to their senses and was like wow. Fox is not going to be happy or does not going to. To be happy with Godzilla, so let's not put that in the game. Let's not get kind of trouble much less to say you know. The NBA would be like what Bart Simpson's our game and we never approve this so yes, and no secret levels, but yeah. Bart Simpson Godzilla were almost NBA Jam which is another thing I learned wild. That's amazing flipped out by. Bart Simpson in NBA, Jam Ninety, two or ninety three. It's NBA. Jam It's written by Ray on Ali. Go ahead and follow him on twitter to find out more about this book and where you can get it. Follow him on twitter at NBA Jam Book. I was reading the digital copy a little bit, and I saw that there's a really cool funny story about how the developers went on to produce other games such as like Wrestlemainia the arcade game and there are so many great stories about the wrestlers having so much fun while they were developing this game. What is the lasting legacy of MBA jam? What is it meant for the careers of the developers and Will we ever see anything like this ever again. That is just taking a license and flipping the traditional format on its head to massive success billions of dollars in quarters. I think it's possible for another game to do that at some point, but you need the alchemy. The Midway had midway had all the different perfect elements. You had a team that really cared the really loved. The Games, these guys poured the heart and souls into it. It was Chicago Ninety two. So is the right environment. I mean these were working down the hallway from the guys who may. May Combat, so the guys who made more combat would come in and chime in on the game, so it was just really the perfect element of things I mean the yeah. It was late ninety two, the Dream Team just one gold that summer, so I four game! That kind of alchemy is something. That's very special. I think it's possible some day, but you need to have the right. Right people to do it. but an NBA jams case I? Really think his lasting legacy is the fact that you know it's a great game that really holds up. You know sometimes you have nostalgia for some that you play when you're younger, you enjoyed and you go back and you're like okay. That wasn't so good or you know I like it, but I'm done after five minutes, but. But when you go back and play NBA Jam. If you played for just a few minutes, you'll get into it. Things will start getting heated. You'll start. You know like this is what I love is UCSB Jan Barcodes now for me. That's a big part of his legacy seeing it as one of the main arcade games, and if people are drinking, the competition is to increase even more. So, it's you know I just look at. It's such a classic game. It's such an amazing document of era. It's like a yearbook. You can go through that screen and you can see okay. is on the Knicks than here's. Who's on the net? Stan? Here's who was on the Bulls. Then here's on the timber wolves, then and so forth so yet to me. It's just an. Incredible Yearbook of the time, and just a really fun game, and it just goes to show just. How Special Arcades were I mean? We live in a different world now but NBA. Jam is the arcade game personified. Rayon, thank you so much for taking the time out to join us and answering some of our die hard questions about the greatest arcade game, certainly in.

"And keep in mind, the midway team that made NBA jammed the main mortal combat. All these guys are from Chicago so Michael Jordan saying hey, we want a special verge of NBA Jam with Michael Jordan in a to I mean that's peak. Wild horse to do it, so yes, they made a special version of the game, and they send out on over to him, so he had a special limited edition arcade cabinet. And what's weird is that wasn't just Michael Jordan? It was also Gary Payton who was in yet. He was an NBA Jam Tournament edition very famously with Sean kept on the supersonics, but if you go back to that very first NBA Jam, he's not actually in there. Which is weird thing? Thing? Everybody remembers that that's classic. Sonic's team in thinks that he's an MBA jam one, but he's actually in. What's basically NBA. Jam, too, so yeah, so is Gary Payton, in addition with Michael Jordan, and then the third one was Ken Griffey Junior, which is just another mind trip, so Ken griffey junior new Gary Pain a new Michael Jordan, and they're all the same kind of circle, and they all asked mid way to put them in the game and Midway did. So. Yes, there's a special limited edition version of NBA Jim out there very very very rare, so rare that I worked on the for years have yet to see any video footage photos of, but as far as I know it's real. There's a version out there that has Michael. Jordan, Gary Payton and Ken Griffey Junior in it, and is just crazy to think that something like this exists, and just to add to this whole crazy mythology. Is that Gary Payton of course he got a couple of Arcade Games back in the day, so he still has them. Them, so in his place in California right now right now as we speak, there's an NBA jam version with these three people in it, but Gary has yet to show to anybody, but as far as I. Know It's out there, so that just blows my mind that after all these years. They're still in jam secret. We haven't totally seen. You wrote NBA Jam the Book and and you were trying to get all the information about this secret copy I imagine. So. How hard did you push Gary? PAYDEN and his camp to get access to this mythical machine. Thinking so as far as I knew, was marked Hermel designed with the Game Gary Payden. King of Virginia Michael Jordan. who had copies so I didn't have any kind of couldn't find any kind of linked. Michael Jordan to reasonably ask Ken Griffey Junior but with Gary Payton offended management and they're like Oh. Yeah, this is cool. Let's let's get in touch with Gary. So yeah. She was really cool by then. She said that she was going to check on it, but that never checked on. On it and then I kept like poking Alec Hey. Is there any chance to? Gary can even take picture just acknowledges existence like prove something for the rest of us out there. The Geek out over this so I definitely pushed, but unfortunately no go from Gary. people yet, but I'm I'm really optimistic about it. I think in our lifetimes. We're going to see this amazing at some point. Ran This seems to be a bit of a holy Grail I think this has a really high street value. Turmoil needs to realize that if he just look. What's this thing out there or decides the even finish it and give it the traditional arcades setup that thing could be worse hundreds of thousands of dollars, if not close to a million easily easily and I mean the fan reaction, itself would just be incredible There was a story that was just in the news recently about how marked Mel. Bring the code so that the Pistons would always beat the Bulls. Oh all right, so you're ray on the opening the door to some of the mythology here we got into the secret copy, so yes, all right audience. Let's do this a little bit rapid fire because we're running out of time here and there are so many. Urban Lights in regards to this game. I always heard that the bulls were programmed to choke at the end of games, and that the Pistons the whoever created the game was a Piston Fan, and he made it so that the Pistons would win almost every time. marshmallows diehard Pistons Fan and the Yes that is true. Yes, he did rig that way, so yeah, it's incredible that he did that, but yes he did that. That's amazing I love that. That fan boy aspect of social diehard Pistons Fan, he he beat the Bulls man. So yes, it is true, so but the Bulls were the bulls program to choke, or it was just because whenever they played the Pistons, they were program to lose because the Pistons were actually yeah, so it all came down to that Classic Bulls and Pistons. Rivalry from the late eighties CERMARK, who worked at midway was one of like he was a he came over to. To Chicago, but he's actually from Michigan, and he loved the Pistons so in the late eighties when the Pistons were being. The Bull's Terrell was working Chicago and would love to Brag. He would go around the hallways. bad boys at the other bulls fans in the office and he was the only Pistons. Fan, but then, of course you know things change, and by the early nineties now this is on the way out, and the Bulls are on the way up so marshmallows such big Pistons Fan. He was like man I really want team to win. This is my team, so he? Yeah, he tweaked the code so that if you're playing? Playing the balls of the Pistons in the fourth quarter. The percentages are GONNA quietly change. The code is going to change so that skype in for example will start to brick shots more and Isaiah Thomas and bill laimbeer they'll start to make their shots more, and it's all to go teeter totter, and it's going to go more in the way of the Pistons. But that was just what trump did and he kind of snuck that in there, and then it came many years later, and then it's popping up again in the recently oh. It's funny as bad. That's the really famous instance, but he also did it again in NFL blitz. Blitz so he plays the lions. That's the team to play as easily aligns sats. Yeah, so that they're better than other teams. So I'm not a hardcore NFL blitz fish out of the way I am NBA Jam, but I would venture to guess that is absolutely real. That's think he would do all right. I'm moving into a new place in building out a game room and I decided there to standard arcade. Console Games said I need to have in my house. NBA Jam. NFL blitz up so I'm just plugging away my iphone notes..

"City where you've got something like twenty thirty. NBA Jam Machines all lined up together and the these are all brand new. You know you've got NBA fans from around the country, probably from around the world that never played NBA jam before and even heard of this game. They're all playing for the first time. Time so that was when Midway really knew that the game had taken off. And that's what the NBA really knew how big it was! I think one of the integral parts of the success of MBA jams was in its infancy stage was the to onto right. Like how did they see that and say you what to onto what we're? GonNa make Iraq and try to make it five on five or not going to try to calm blue, the entire screen with people where you're gonNA have to make choices on. You WanNa be to onto that a little bit of the success of Mba Jim. Definitely, definitely, to is a big part of the success fram be jam for few different reasons. Well, what's weird? Is that for like five minutes back ninety two in their first up the idea for the game. They actually wanted to get one one which is very strange like the idea of NBA Jam WanNa. One would be completely different game. Yeah, this one of those things I'd imagine they talked about, but it didn't really do anything with you. Know just besides just spitballing but yeah to onto is absolutely crucial to it when they decided that. They're gonNA. Go with it. There was other games at the time called archrivals. which is this old of Arcade basketball? Games unlicensed but it's a fun game. It's kind of clunky. It's gotten on the older side, but it's still fun game but it was too onto, and what's funny is that midway came out with it before NBA Jam and somebody who is the one of the executive over at Williams about midway, the company that really starts rivals saw the success of our tribals, which was twenty two, but with two controller panels. And they saw that they said we'll have. Are we making four control panels? So you know everybody's got their own player still onto, but now you've got four players instead of to midway knew that. Basketball was a real good avenue for them. That's something that they could really do something with and then marshmallow capitalize on this. And he saw how big this was going to be, and then that to onto ended up, being so important to the earnings of NBA Jam. Because you don't get to a billion dollars, just easily get two billion dollars as an arcade game through a moving pieces around a few interesting ways, so nba jam was making something like. Let's say eight dollars in about. Let's say eight to ten minutes, so it's racking up the money racking up the money. That was really where the two onto really paid off because you had one. One on one utimately cut that number in half, and with other two on two aspects with four people playing. You don't have that same kind of energy have people young in the same way in that same kind of excitement, I mean people still love it, but not to the same degree that to onto is absolutely crucial I want to jump on the to onto thing. Because this was a controversial thing in league circles who made the to onto who decided who the two representatives were from each team? And then we'll ask. There's certain high profile individuals at my friend Anthony will ask about. That weren't featured in the top two. That probably should've. Yeah, so what's funny? Is that nowadays? If you made an NBA game, you've got to go through so much red tape. There's so many things you gotta do. This at that. Of course you've got access the Internet if you, WANNA, go, seek with the best players are on a team, but back night to working on MBA jam. There was a team of seven people to develop the game, which still staggering to be seven people, so you had other people are doing things like hardware or on hardware, audio, or marketing or non executive level, but really fundamentally seven people and added that seven people I think there were three basketball fans and those three basketball fans are two of those three basketball fans. Picked those teams so at the time you know you real weird fixing NBA Jam. You've got bradlow house and Blue Edwards on the Milwaukee Bucks just like you know. Why do these guys necessarily up NBA? Jammer wise. Mike is a lean on. The Mavericks was because that. They were doing really well or around that time they were doing really well and martrimonial. John Hey, said okay. We need some players from the bucks, or from the mavs or whomever. Let's go with these guys, so they were on a hot streak. At some point, ninety two initiatives pick because of that so dramatic John, Hey submitted it to the NBA and the NBA some back and forth with them, but they were essentially the ones who picked it so a couple of developers amid midway, who didn't even have access to like real stats. As far as I know, they pretty much went through newspapers. Watch TV. WHO's really who's really having a moment right now and then bring them into the game, so it's crazy impromptu for something. That's so iconic. We remember those faces so well. There's a couple of geysers like okay. Let's go with these guys. That's our pick for you know for the wizards over the real question is this where's Michael Jordan was at a branding issue was just the gamers didn't know about him if they weren't NBA fans like like. Where is this missing piece? Yeah, Michael Jordan was all use left at all because of licensing so Michael Jordan's licensing agreement was separate from the rest of the NBA's even of course in early ninety two. Because at that point, you know Jordan has yet if that second three peat, but of course Jordan, the and you can tell where things are going, so he'd already separated himself from the pack. So his license agreement was separate from the license agreement the other players, but the amazing story is that somebody on Michael Jordan's team I'm not sure Michael. Jordan himself that somehow got word of it, but somebody on his team found out about NBA GM and how big it was now it was and even though NBA. Jam came out without Michael Jordan on the Bulls. Instead it was skype in. In Horace Grant Somebody from Michael Jordan's team contacted midway and said Hey. We would love a special version of the game with Michael Jordan in it,.

"That's counting game, boy, game, gear, and being jammed tournament. bishen thing to the Arcade Games just Super Nintendo. Sega Genesis monsters. As a monster out the gate and then some really interesting stuff happens in ninety five with the negotiating of the license so both midway in a claim have some sort of right to it, but some things got shuttled around over there, and then claim actually ended up with the NBA Jam License, so they released NBA Jam extreme with Marv Albert on commentary, which wasn't very good, and then some late nineties jams, nobody remembers I always forget about it NBA Jam two thousand with Keith Van Horn. was a console exactly exactly. Seek exists. Yeah. I wrote the book about it and I forget. This thing exists all the time, but there's some of these Yeah, NBA Jam Games other by claim, but they're not part of the main lineage, so the developers that may the first game they then went onto. Make NBA hang time NBA. Showtime fell blitz. So that's kind of it's interesting. It's kind of two separate lineages that both have acclaimed NBA jam one in name, and the other one in spirit, so it's kind of all part of. Of the big over our camera and I gotta get. I try to get into at least all of them. So guys. The funny thing is you guys know it as the arcade game where you guys would go in and play from a different generation. The that grew up I was born in ninety one so for me, I was introduced to Mba James Maybe unlike ninety, eight, ninety, nine, two, thousand so I'm part of that weird. Like what are we really doing here with these MBA? Jan Showtime Hang Time. Remember playing on my end sixty four, and that being like the end all be all of what the gaming console was at that time like when when you saw when you started playing. What was your council of choice when you start playing James and then when it evolved? Where did you take it? You go to all these different kind of spinoff games, or did you stay true to the one before? Definitely, so yes, so I started off with a second genesis version of NBA Jam Tournament dishes. Same one that I saw on the back of that. Super Boy Comic. Book that I love so much Growing up in Pakistan and we used the European system, so it actually the second mega drive to same system differ name. But. Yeah, I followed NBA Jam around for a long while I. Mean I loved NB? Jam, Kid, so I knew about NBA hang behind. The came at an arcades better than have access to its nose on. and then yeah I definitely played NBA showtime, playstation, dreamcast, and of course those those arcane versions. I definitely get the series, but the thing is that there's so much that happened time in terms of how they changed, they changed. The game of the series went from two to a three on three for one instance for hoops than it was five on five with a NBA Jam by claim so I kept up with a series. But for me like the real, the true spirit of jam is always going to be those original to NBA Jam in Mba Tournament. Let's get into some of the Geeky or decisions made about this game that ended up making it iconic. You mentioned I remember picking up comic books, and and seeing that pop art sort of pop out and catch me right away as it's designed to do the aesthetic of the game, and then the narration of the game, which in just perusing the book, it seemed to be a bit rushed, and they didn't really know that it would turn out to be this iconic thing with the whole boom shock so from an aesthetic standpoint, not a game design sandpoint. How much thought went into catching people of our age and did they know what they were doing when they had this crazy commentary? Crazy is that that ICONIC NBA Jam announcer you know the guy does boom shot clock that he's on fire. All these amazing calls wasn't actually the original guy. The original guy was the sound guy on the team. John, Hey I who funny enough was also the voice of Raden. Moral Combat One. Play the mortal combat. Yeah, and you hear rain, screaming or something like that. It's actually the sound guy from NBA. Jams guided the NBA, Jim, theme, music and whatnot, so he was who a March! Rommel who is designer? GM teen pitched as being the voice of the game for that part of it but John. Hey was like I. Don't think on the right person for it I know somebody else, so John, hey new this drummer and the. The band, Lazy Boy Rockers, and his name was. Tim Gets wrote so yeah, so zero came into midway just to do voices for Pinball Games essentially do imitations of famous people, and then midway starts working on NBA. Jam, Mark Dramatic says to John Hey. Hey, we should get somebody to do this. know maybe you could do it. And then John Hey says actually Tim kisser would be the man so tim kits comes on in and he. was really excited to do it, but he didn't necessarily know how big this was going to be. So in some ways it was very impromptu. Like e comes in. He gets paid something like fifty bucks an hour. Great Gig, great gig form, super excited, big NBA Fan. Know gets do all of his calls. Really wrap the energy and kind of do a MARV. Albert impression without going straight. marv Albert on everything was crazy. As that you know, he does all this. He has no idea how big it's GonNa be. Like I said, he got paid fifty bucks per hour. which is a really good deal back in? You know ninety two for a Gig like that and the game makes billion dollars so for that original. NBA Jammed that I kinda game made a billion dollars, and the announcer got something like a thousand to fifteen hundred overall. Yeah, it's heartbreaking in Tim. TRAGICOMIC character of the book like somebody who like you know you see this passion enthusiasm, but you also see gets He does not get a fair shake time and time again. It became such a huge part of the marketing strategy eventually in the marketing strategy. was I mean as you mentioned in the comic books? It was ideal to catch people with us. It was eye-popping. Much get into the marketing of the arcade game, and then the console games in the book, but once they realized they had to hit, did they then put the marketing dollars behind? This was this more of a word of mouth thing, and then they put resources behind it or did they know what they had here in this game and decided to push it to the target demo. So the team midway knew that they had a really good game, but with Arcade Games. Even for really good game. You're not one hundred percent sure until you're sure. And then what happened was sometime in late nineteen, ninety two, they went to a place to or they went to dentists place for game in Chicago, which was a Sarcasi- where would take games on tests, so they'll put a game in the corner or put a game someplace. Someplace and then basically use the audience that was. They're playing the game as a test audience to say okay, you know. How are they responding to it? You know are people coming up to play it or whatnot? And immediately NBA Jam was a hit, so it was a huge debt, and people were lining up, and they knew that people were really into it, but was still just an arcade game at that point in late night, too. So the real turning point for NBA jammed. The arcade game came in ninety, three at the NBA. All Star weekend in Salt Lake City the NBA had a whole bunch of cabinets shipped out over there, so imagine a room at NBA. All Star weekend somewhere convention center in Salt Lake City where you've got something like twenty thirty. NBA Jam Machines all lined up together and the these are all brand new..
"eighty w" Discussed on Le Batard & Friends - Mystery Crate
"Mystery crate and this is a passion project. We always say that this is a self-indulgent podcast for the of the Dan Le Batard show was STU gods. We talk about our passions on this podcast, and I'm joined by. Anthony Colada you'd known as Tony Basically just Dan, it's it's weird. But Anthony is a fan of one of the Great Arcade Games of all time as an. NBA GM, and our audience will be thrilled to know that our guest. Ray, on Ali wrote a book about MBA jam. The greatest arcade game arguably ever. Many could say. Is it even the greatest Midway Arcade Game Midway certainly had this slot of real estate to themselves. Basically there's party lines here, ray on! It's either NFL BLITZER NBA. And we'll get into that in the little bit, but on first and foremost I obviously NBA J. A. Makes every body of a certain age light up I. Imagine it's the same with you because you spent many many years working on this book, so what compelled you to write a book about the Greatest Arcade Game? Arguably ever absolutely? Yeah, no I'm a huge NBA Jam Fan, so yes, going back to two thousand fifteen when I really wanted to write a book I pick a couple of music books. That didn't workout and I really wanted to sink my teeth into something substantial. Thought like what is something out there that I could do that would be really valuable something that I could actually. Taking the nonfiction space, and making my own so I found this publisher called boss fight books at Los, Angeles and their whole ideas of the do individual books, but individual video games, so the do one book about Super. Mario Brothers to by one author. One Book Three by separate author on book about Gal by third author and so forth so different authors in different books. Back Two Thousand Fifteen, when I was writing, they had this open call for pitches, and they said Yep. Which is a book will see. And then I was like man I. Really Really WanNa, do something Mike while I would love to write a book, but what is a video game? It's really worth writing a book about what something that I've connection to. What's something that I think would really impress? People will really get people talking. And I thought about it and I was like. Oh, obviously, NBA Jam. It's right there so. Yeah I'm a huge NBA Jam. Jam Fan Myself, so I've had kind of an interesting trajectory with that I was born in Texas, but I grew up in Pakistan so when I was probably about. Let's say nine or ten I, I saw NBA Jam on the of a Comic Book Super Boy Comic Book and I, loved it in the color is really stood out to me, and then for their got so big in NBA jammed got big into the NBA so. So I'm probably one of those interesting cases out there where somebody who got an NBA jamming. Ben The NBA not vice versa but yeah, what's funny is my very first ever writing gay going long before the writing the music writing stuff was for mortal combat website when I was probably twelve or thirteen, so when the opportunity came to pitch boss fight books about this NBA. Jam Book was like already know lot of these people. People just their names themselves as a kid, I was geeking out looking at developers names over there and learn about secret characters, so it was really a a very easy for me. I was super excited to get started on the project a fan I was like I, WanNa know as much as there is no NBA Jam you could probably put a quantifiable metric to this I'm sure you did as a part of your research. Just going into this flying blind is NBA Jam, the biggest arcade game of the Hundred Ninety S. ooh You, know what's funny is that it is really close, but it is not the biggest arcade game of ninety nineties, because what midway was just on such a hot streak. In the early nineties, they release mortal Kombat which was huge broke records. For, the company, and then NBA Jam came out a year later, and then later that year, ninety three mortal Kombat to came out so mortal combat to actually talked NBA Jam in terms of earnings, but it was pretty close an NBA jam by far had its own niche, its own separate area, where it was the first NBA. Arcade game, and of course you know NBA. Jam made a billion dollars, which is just staggering, but yeah I mean amid on such. Such a hot streak in NBA Jam really started a whole new era NBA jam was special, not because of just mb jam success, but but because of the games that came afterward I mean you had NBA. Jam Tournament addition and be a hang diamond NBA. Showtime NFL GRADUATES NHL Open is will be slugfests in each. You'll hits I mean. You can keep going and going and those just the Midway Games, not even counting other stuff that other companies did. or EA did with the NFL Street and Bay Street series I mean all that stuff was or from that I wanted to ask you because it. NBA Sham were these true sequels or Are. They all under that original games umbrella because I remember NBA GMT tournament edition. The he's on fire addition. They were all like slightly different versions of the same game. There weren't very many updates to it, so does it. All Count Forges the NBA brand. I don't think there was like an NBA Jam Ninety five ninety, six, ninety seven. Yeah, so the main NBA Jam brand the Classic Nba Jim the people think of as NBA Jam in Nba, Jam Tournament was. This book is really about then. I do get into some of the other games that are out there, and they're not necessarily within the main NBA. Jam Umbrella, because of some really interesting things that happened so midway released the arcade game made a billion dollars than claim comes along and. And they bet a contract with midway happened I. Look option for their games to put them in the home market, so that a claim releases NBA Jam for Super, Nintendo and Sega Genesis makes I think they sell six million copies just from from Super Nintendo segments first round of NBA Jam..
