Michael Knowles: Why Catholic Support for the Right to Life Is Lagging

"Michael Knowles, host of the daily wires, the Michael Knowles show, everybody check that out. Michael, welcome back to the Charlie Kirk show. It is great to be with you, man. Thanks for having me. Well, it's great to have you on the show all the time. I mean, it's great to have an apostate Catholic, be able to explain these horrendous poll numbers. I was like, Michael, you got some splaining to do my friend. Got this plane. Catholics, according to pew, you got 48% of Catholics that believe that abortion should be legal in all or most cases. So that's 48 to 47%. What the heck is going on right now? Well, it's very sad, but the reason that you see that is because Joe Biden calls himself a Catholic. Nancy Pelosi calls herself a Catholic. The Cuomo family has called themselves Catholics. They don't ascend to the teachings of the Catholic Church, but they were raised Catholic. Maybe they went to church on Sunday sometimes. And so they take it on as a kind of cultural identity. In a similar way that Jews will do this. Jews being an ethnicity and a religion will say I'm Jewish, even if they don't believe anything about the Jewish religion and they don't follow any of the practices. I have a sort of personal connection to this in that I was raised a cradle Catholic. I was, we have infant baptism, that's one of the reasons that people will keep this identity even if they don't actually practice the religion. And I went away. I fell away from the faith for about ten years. And I came back to it, and I came back to it in a very gradual way. And I came back to it through certain Protestant thinkers and through certain actually not even not Christian thinkers, and then I was convinced God exists. And then I was convinced Jesus is who he says he is, and that I was convinced that the Catholic Church really is the Catholic Church. And so I came back to it with all the zeal of a revert. All the zeal of a convert. And it drives me crazy because it take, for example, Joe Biden, who says he's Catholic, he goes, I believe he receives communion at mass, he is in a state of grave and unrepentant sin. He is supporting abortion in a very public way. He is committing the sin of scandal. He is committing all sorts of skins. And the scandal here is that he's leading the flock astray and it's a real risk. When Christ says, it's not going to go very well for those of you who lead the little ones astray. It's just thinking about that verse. Millstones and all of that. That's what we're talking about here. We're actually not even really talking about

Examining Alito's Leaked Draft Opinion Overturning Roe v Wade

"I mentioned that I haven't systematically gone through Alito's decision in the Dobbs case because it's a draft decision, but just skimming through it to pick up the thread of the argument. It looks like Alito. I mean, this is very alita wish gives no quarter. I mean, he slams on all fronts. And this is the way it should be. It looks like it's an awesome decision. And the leader really begins where he should be beginning, which is all right, that's the supposed right to an abortion. Where is it in the constitution? I mean, he doesn't use my language, but in effect, what he's saying is let's read the constitution. Let's read it upside down. Let's hold it up to the light. Let's squeeze lemon juice on it. You know what? I don't see it in here. There's no abortion right. Not to say that there's no right to privacy at all. There is, but it's a very specified right. The right against unreasonable search and seizure. No one can relate abortion to that abortion is not an unreasonable search and seizure. No, this is a case where we are talking about abortion is basically the right to kill your kid. I mean, that's what it is. It's the right to exercise choice over somebody else's choices. In fact, overall their choices. In fact, over their life itself. That's what it is. And the Leto says, look, this is a very grave matter.

To the Left, a Grave, Unforgivable Sin Is Irrelevant

"Last night, that 8 30 Eastern Time, I was in a rehearsal hall working on a show that I'm doing. My phone started vibrating in my pocket, and the first thing I saw was a tweet from scotus blog at scotus blog that reads, it's impossible to overstate the earthquake, this will cause inside the court in terms of the destruction of trust among the justices and staff. This leak is the gravest, most unforgivable sin. But of course, to the left, when you want to burn it all down, a grave unforgivable sin is irrelevant.

"graves" Discussed on How I Built This

"You know, you should have proper balances in your business. And that helps you get through tough times like the major hurricane, right? But I levered everything. Now, interestingly enough, I didn't have to go get any capital, per se. I didn't have to get any partners, right? Luckily, I lived through that. But that's when I really learned to balance risk. All right, so about ten years in, 2006, you've got about, I think of roughly a 150 locations. In the U.S. mainly, I think in the south and Midwest at that point. I want to ask you about chicken for a moment here because you had seen ten years earlier that chicken was going to be this thing that was going to explode. That people were going to kind of move away from burgers to chicken. That didn't entirely happen. You get the 5 guys phenomena on their burger places all over. But I wonder, did the sort of Chick-fil-A Popeyes phenomenon that really began in the 2000s, also have that same impact on your business? Yeah, I think so, you know, it rises all ships. So when Popeyes, when it crazy the chicken sandwich wars, right? We're not known for our chicken sandwich, but our sales went up ten and 15%. Because people were talking about chicken sandwiches, and they were coming and buy our chicken tuners. It made people think more about chicken. And the chicken sandwich wars, that was really like KFC Popeyes, right? Chick-fil-A and Popeyes when it started, then everybody jumped in. That's what I'm wondering. I mean, ten years in, you know, you are currently locations in ten years. It's amazing, right? But at the same time, you're watching all these other competitors introduce new products on their menus. I'm sure people are saying, hey, just do a Cajun chicken version. Just do just roll it in Cajun spices and not for that or offer Cajun fries like 5 guys does. I mean, I'm sure people said that to you all the time and how are you able to resist doing those things? If I could if I could have a dollar for every time someone said ad ranch had barbecue spicy, everything grilled everything else and you know these companies keep adding and changing and different ideas, they lose their identity. They lose who they are and I like to say if you try to be all things to all people, you're nothing to not. You spread yourself then. And so one thing too, that's sad in my industry. It used to be founder driven. You know, it used to be all the founders. Of their businesses. And there's very few now. And so when your founder and this is a family business and you care about your crew, it's a lot of integrity. And so many of these people and the rest of the restaurant industry in general, founders get bought up by private equity. And then it becomes a business transaction and CEOs come and go and see if those come and go and marketing comes and goes. And everybody's got new ideas and new things and sales this quarter and this, you know, and all those things and it's not really built for land jeopardy. It's built for profit. Profits in 5 year turnarounds and selling and all that stuff isn't so if the reason why I never gave in was I knew it was the right thing for us. It's our one love. It makes a successful and we're going to stick to it. And it holds true. With a second highest average unit volume in all of quick service. Wow. It's like I ripped some like three and a half $1 million per restaurant. Yeah, we're over 4 billion average unit volumes. And I guess to put that in the context, I think number one is Chick-fil-A. Number one is Chico. And by comparison, McDonald's is like two and a half to $3 million per location. Right, right. I know that you've got something like at the time of this recording, something like 565, 70 locations, maybe more. Yeah, I think we're at 6 southern 13. We actually opened 7 restaurants yesterday. And growing quickly. In an average year, how many restaurants do you plan to open now? Yeah, we plan to open a hundred to a 110 restaurants in the next 12 months. And then increase that number. And now when you open them, people know what they are. Absolutely. They're lies. It's nice having that. You know, we've been a business now for 25 years, so you have people that have actually been decaying somewhere. We're in like 33 states. And they're just fanatical about it. Yeah, well, when you think about this journey, I mean, I know you were so motivated, and you are confident this was going to work. But when you now see what you built, I mean, how much of that do you attribute to luck and how much to the work you put into it. So one you've got to have a great concept and then two, you've got to work your butt off to do it. But you need help along the way and you need luck. So you need people that help you. These angels come about to help you. And a lot of things come along. That's luck and you take advantage of it, right? Naming the dog. That was luck. Our logo comes off a mural on covered in the first location renovating it. That was luck to see that. And these are rich things and canes, history, and lore. I mean, looking back at your story, I'm not surprised, a year tenacity and all the things that you did and your commitment and all the people said, don't do this. And you were just committed to this. But on the other hand, it is quite amazing. I mean, it's very straightforward, simple concept, chicken fingers, fries, toast, coleslaw, into a $1 billion business is quite an amazing thing. I mean, do you ever sort of step back and just think, wow, how did that happen? Yeah, pretty much every morning when I wake up, you know? I'm so blessed that the restaurant was so hard to start. So when you had that, you don't take anything for granted. Our projections this year will do about $3 billion in sales, right? In opening another hundred restaurants. And these are all great things, but it still gives me that little bit of my gut, that little scary feeling in your gut, that little feeling that keeps me waking up and working late and working hard and doing this. So I'm always blown away by it. I mean, I think the day this doesn't cease to amaze me, would be the day I'd have to get out of it. And that day will never come. What's a great quote when you think you've arrived, it's time to show you the door. Like, I feel like we're just getting warmed up. That's Todd graves, founder, and CEO of raising canes. The graves family still owns a majority of the company and Todd's wife and kids are all involved in the business. And the family still has a pet yellow Labrador retriever, the current dog is raising cane the third. And every year for Mardi Gras, Kane the third, like her predecessor, came the second, serves as grand marshal of the crew of mutts parade in Baton Rouge. Todd, I'm going to give you, I'm going to give you my secret ingredient for my fried chicken. I'm going to tell you, I don't think I've ever told anybody. I would tell you right now. I can't wait to hear it. My secret ingredient for my fried chicken, ground fenugreek. No kidding. So now that I've told you my secret ingredient, what's in the cane sauce? I do this was coming. Well, you know the old adage I could tell you, but then, you know, then you know what happens. What I'd have to do. Fair enough. Only me and the dog actually know everything that goes into it.

"graves" Discussed on How I Built This

"Efficient menu. But going from one restaurant to 600 wasn't a seamless journey. In fact, getting the money to finance his first restaurant required two dangerous detours to an oil refinery and an Alaskan salmon fishing boat. But before that happened, Todd graves grew up in Baton Rouge in a family of 5. His dad sold warranties for car dealerships and his mom helped his dad with the business. Todd's dad was actually a former professional football player, too. Alignment for the New Orleans Saints back in the 1970s. And Todd grew up with dreams of playing college football, just like his dad. I was 6 one weighed almost 200 pounds in high school playing to a football, right? And so I was a quarterback and then the defensive end. Going both ways. And I didn't realize at the time, but that really made for me having a smooth childhood. I was just really fortunate, which is one of the better kids of the best kids playing sports, which also you know what younger ages makes you more popular, right? And so I was a reasonably smart kid and I worked hard in my classes. So I was part of all the honors classes. And then I liked drama, so I did plays. Oh, you did theater. Yeah, yeah. I would say I had different groups of Friends. You know, I had the real smart kids that were friends. And then sometimes they complained about the jocks, not being friendly to them. And I'd kind of bridge those together, then you had the artistic kids and I would kind of bridge all those along. And I didn't really think that was my role, but later in life, I kind of understood that it was. When I look back. And I think that made me more well rounded and made me more empathetic to people, being around different people in different backgrounds, different interests, but also seeing their challenges with the other groups. So you were the high school quarterback and a pretty good athlete. I think I'm Louisiana, I would say losing a Texas big football and Louisiana also baseball states. Did you ever ever have dreams of playing at the college level? Did you ever think maybe I can play in college? Yeah, I did, and I wanted to, I just wasn't good enough to play division one. I wanted to play major college football. So we're talking LSU. A big southeastern conference school. And so I wasn't that good. I actually got offers some smaller schools. To go play. But I realized I really wanted that college experience. I wanted the big school. I wanted the I wanted to I wanted the party. I wanted to have fun. You know, I'm a kid of the 70s and 80s, man. We grew up with the movies of college, being just the ultimate. So I wanted to be able to do that. So you actually wound up going to the university of Georgia in Athens. And I read that you majored in telecommunications and I guess started working on a bunch of different restaurants around campus while you were there, right? I did. I did. I worked at a lot of different restaurants and bars. So everything for more quick service types of restaurants to mom and pop, grills and bars. It's a great college job. And that's really where I fell in love with the restaurant business. I was always in love with cooking and everything around food. Did you know how to cook when you were in college? Yeah, I did, you know, I just growing up in south Louisiana, food is so much a part of our culture. And I grew up cooking in my mother's kitchen. And I was always interested in it. So I learned to make intricate Cajun meals when I was young. But we make a gumbo and that gumbo really could be made in a couple of hours, but you know, you want that thing to stretch at all day. And why you want it to is because you're spending time cooking with somebody. And then your family and friends are coming through the kitchen. They're coming in, they're checking on the progress of the gumbo. They want to come in and stir that pot. It's a way to spend time together. It's a way to connect as a way to say, I love you. You're doing ruse for the gumbo. Absolutely ruse for gumbo. What's your, what's the color you're looking for in that roux? Dark, dark, dark, dark, dark dark dark. I have to tell you now most of the time I cheat. When I use Sabra's roux in a jar, which is almost as good. No shame, no shame. You're busy guy. Yeah, I feel like it's fun, too, because I cook with my kids today, especially my son. He loves it, so we spend time together like my mother and I spent time together. But all those Cajun dishes, the crawfish a two phase, even things just like, look, steak and potatoes, like I was a junior high kid, grilled steaks for my parents making gin and tonics for them. You know what I mean? I don't know many other kids in 7th grade that are doing that. Can you make me a gin and tonic son? I love that. Where was your first restaurant job? The first restaurant job I had was actually a function as a kitchen steward for our fraternity. And that gave me great experience. I just signed up to do it. My freshman year. And from there, we had a chef her name was Martha, and she was an amazing cook. She cooked, you know, just great southern food. We're talking Mac and cheese and collard greens and fried chicken, and she could cook great. So I spent my time in the kitchen with her going over the food and the food quality and learning that way. And then the owner of the business that did this for a lot of fraternities. He taught me things because I asked about food costs. What is your food cost? And he had the real simple answers of. It's a third of what you should sell something for. If you're going to sell something for a dollar, your food costs should be 33 cents. And from there, I just went worked at a different. I can't even remember all the names of them. Just different college bars and other people worked out that I could jump on to and working for these entrepreneurs and learning about food. Do you realize how hard of a business it is and you also realize you have to love it. And I loved it. I loved the restaurant business, and it was like, I love the teamwork. I love the immediate gratification of cooking something and serving something to somebody, and them smiling. And saying, and that was good. So you are one of these, I mean, I worked in restaurants when I was in high school and I liked it too. You know, I worked at a pizzeria and even more to the gas station, making the burgers and chopping the onions and actually I think that's why I know how to cook today because I did it back then. But I can't say I loved it, but it was something about restaurants and the intensity of working in a restaurant that you just loved that you just connected with you. It's two things. One is my mind's always rolling. It's always thinking of ideas. It's always these things. And it's therapeutic to me. If I'm on a fry line and cook, I can focus on. Fry the chicken. Do the fries, deliver the box. It's immediate gratification. It's like some people why they like to cut their grass, right? Yeah. But then two, when you're slammed and busy, you're working. With a team and everybody's high stress, but that teamwork. And when you're just cranking together, you know, servers like we're slammed were behind tables upset, no problem, we'll get it right to you. That intensity is good, and maybe that came from, that's way sports is, right? Sports is high intensity. You got to make quick decisions, you got to roll and do it if you mess up, make up for it. Keep going. And I think, you know, when you get done with your day, you don't have a problem go to sleep that night. And you accomplish something. You accomplish something. Was there a point in college where you thought, I think I want to do this? I think I want to, I want to start a restaurant or run a restaurant professional because you were studying telecommunications. It seems to me that you already in college were thinking, I think this is where this is where I'm headed restaurants. Yeah, absolutely was, you know, it was, it was something I knew I could do. And I also, I wanted to, what I wanted to do was open a restaurant at the north Gates of LSU. I wanted to be home. I loved LSU. And I was a college student. That was familiar to me. I knew what college students wanted to eat, I knew how much college students could spend. I knew what environment college students wanted to come to. I knew hours of operation, I knew I'd have a late night restaurant because they're up late, they're studying or going to the bars. And so I knew all this. And so I looked at concepts and what kind of restaurant I want to start. And at that time, boneless chicken was becoming incredibly popular. It was just really becoming popular. Back in the 80s, people started saying that red meat was terrible for you. All these studies came out. A lot of people were saying, look, chicken as an alternative. But not just bone in chicken, which is what I grew up on. You started getting boneless chicken. White meat, boneless chicken, strips, or fingers, or nuggets. And you were seeing them on menus from airy war to national chains like chilies would have it on the menu with a great dipping sauce. Our mom and pops would have it. Like I saw it everywhere, and we ate it like crazy. And it started seeing them like, man, this trend is going. And you had people that specialized in it. Guthrie's chicken fingers throughout the south. Zaxby's chicken fingers and buffalo wings and different concepts like that were opening and doing well with it. And so I thought that was a really good concept to start. So I called my old buddy, Craig sylvie, dear friend, still today. And told him what I wanted to do and the restaurants. And I talked to him, and he said, hey, this sounds pretty good. Let's go and do this. And I said, are you serious? He said, yeah. And Craig, by the way, Craig was at LSU. Craig was an Ellis shoot. And it was a high school friend of yours. Yeah, I actually Craig and I had gone to school since middle school. Friends. Plus, you know, I just knew I could rely on him. He's got that kind of guy that always has it back. He's one of those one of those kind of Friends. So when you, when you reach out to Craig with your idea, what was the idea you told him you had? What did you want to do? Yeah, I told him, I want to do a college restaurant at north Gates of LSU. I mean, I knew where the area wanted to be. But back then too, is you got to realize I was thinking about just one location. That was my dream. I wanted everybody to say, man, that's the coolest restaurant. That's the greatest place. That's where we eat. That's our hangout. That's where we get our chicken fingers. Yeah. And you knew that it was going to be chicken fingers, fries, and drinks. Absolutely. Absolutely. If you look at it, our menu is like what Guthrie's originally came back up with like in the late 60s, you know, is that chicken finger meal with the sauce and the fries and the coleslaw and the Texas toast. I wanted to take that to another level. And I wanted to make it better and I wanted to make not only the menu better, but the operations better. And have a little more character. But I'm curious because you're 22 and you're thinking, let's focus on one thing. And that's a really smart thing to think. Okay, that's like a really sophisticated way to think about a business. But usually that doesn't come until many years later of just trying and failing and trying and failing, but already at the outset. You came to the realization that focusing on one thing is the way to go. And I wonder, I mean, did you come to that realization? Purely out of working for other restaurants and seeing the way they were doing it wasn't working or was there another influence that led you to that belief in that view? You know, I think a lot of it was just instincts and just part of me and so I just always been a focused person and also too is I had worked at different type restaurants, right? Restaurants that served large menu. Mexican restaurants had had so many different menu items, all that. That intimidated me, doing all those different items and doing it well. It is, it is very, very, very hard, you know, because the restaurant business is hard enough by doing it. But if you focus on doing one thing, that I knew I could handle at my young age, and look without having management experience, and restaurants. I never managed to restaurants work there. These different restaurants. So that was less intimidating to me, saying I can execute on this. All right, so you reach out to Craig with this idea, and he says, hey, that seems pretty good. He's still at LSU, right? And about to graduate to, same time, you're about to graduate. Well, so no Craig, 'cause he changed majors had another year of college, which actually was great because I was able to graduate and come back to Baton Rouge. And Craig was able to enroll in business classes. Which he had had before, but it changed his major to general studies and get a minor in business. And Craig and I went through the classes he could take and he enrolled in business planning class, which was great because neither of us had a clue on how to write a business plan. And we used that semester of his class at LSU to write the business plan. And just to be clear, you had just graduated from university of Georgia. So you're back in your hometown of Baton Rouge, and what were you actually doing? Were you working in town? I bartended at night. And while Craig was taking these business planning classes, I was going to use other resources in Baton Rouge area. Small business development center. Service corps of retired executives. These are retired executives that help aspiring entrepreneurs or people in startup businesses. All while Craig's going to class and learning about writing the business plan and we're applying all this stuff during the day when he wasn't in class. But at night I had to bar things. Look, I had to live, man. I had to pay my rent and I had to eat and I had jerk a few beers. So you were going to these like free programs that exist and cities all over the country. The retired executives mentors and so on and you were saying, hey, this idea for a chicken restaurant. Yeah, absolutely.

"graves" Discussed on How I Built This

"Of partying. And while lots of people suggested that Todd introduced classic Louisiana Cajun spices or even healthy options like salad, he stayed laser focused on his short, simple and efficient menu. But going from one restaurant to 600 wasn't a seamless journey. In fact, getting the money to finance his first restaurant required two dangerous detours to an oil refinery and an Alaskan salmon fishing boat. But before that happened, Todd graves grew up in Baton Rouge in a family of 5. His dad sold warranties for car dealerships and his mom helped his dad with the business. Todd's dad was actually a former professional football player, too. Alignment for the New Orleans Saints back in the 1970s. And Todd grew up with dreams of playing college football, just like his dad. I was 6 one weighed almost 200 pounds in high school playing to a football, right? And so I was a quarterback and then the defensive end. Going both ways. And I didn't realize at the time, but that really made for me having a smooth childhood. I was just really fortunate, which is one of the better kids of the best kids playing sports, which also you know what younger ages makes you more popular, right? And so I was a reasonably smart kid and I worked hard in my classes. So I was part of all the honors classes. And then I liked drama, so I did plays. Oh, you did theater. Yeah, yeah. I would say I had different groups of Friends. You know, I had the real smart kids that were friends. And then sometimes they complained about the jocks, not being friendly to them. And I'd kind of bridge those together, then you had the artistic kids and I would kind of bridge all those along. And I didn't really think that was my role, but later in life, I kind of understood that it was. When I look back. And I think that made me more well rounded and made me more empathetic to people, being around different people in different backgrounds, different interests, but also seeing their challenges with the other groups. So you were the high school quarterback and a pretty good athlete. I think I'm Louisiana, I would say losing a Texas big football and Louisiana also baseball states. Did you ever ever have dreams of playing at the college level? Did you ever think maybe I can play in college? Yeah, I did, and I wanted to, I just wasn't good enough to play division one. I wanted to play major college football. So we're talking LSU. A big southeastern conference school. And so I wasn't that good. I actually got offers some smaller schools. To go play. But I realized I really wanted that college experience. I wanted the big school. I wanted the I wanted to I wanted the party. I wanted to have fun. You know, I'm a kid of the 70s and 80s, man. We grew up with the movies of college, being just the ultimate. So I wanted to be able to do that. So you actually wound up going to the university of Georgia in Athens. And I read that you majored in telecommunications and I guess started working on a bunch of different restaurants around campus while you were there, right? I did. I did. I worked at a lot of different restaurants and bars. So everything for more quick service types of restaurants to mom and pop, grills and bars. It's a great college job. And that's really where I fell in love with the restaurant business. I was always in love with cooking and everything around food. Did you know how to cook when you were in college? Yeah, I did, you know, I just growing up in south Louisiana, food is so much a part of our culture. And I grew up cooking in my mother's kitchen. And I was always interested in it. So I learned to make intricate Cajun meals when I was young. But we make a gumbo and that gumbo really could be made in a couple of hours, but you know, you want that thing to stretch at all day. And why you want it to is because you're spending time cooking with somebody. And then your family and friends are coming through the kitchen. They're coming in, they're checking on the progress of the gumbo. They want to come in and stir that pot. It's a way to spend time together. It's a way to connect as a way to say, I love you. You're doing ruse for the gumbo. Absolutely ruse for gumbo. What's your, what's the color you're looking for in that roux? Dark, dark, dark, dark, dark dark dark. I have to tell you now most of the time I cheat. When I use Sabra's roux in a jar, which is almost as good. No shame, no shame. You're busy guy. Yeah, I feel like it's fun, too, because I cook with my kids today, especially my son. He loves it, so we spend time together like my mother and I spent time together. But all those Cajun dishes, the crawfish a two phase, even things just like, look, steak and potatoes, like I was a junior high kid, grilled steaks for my parents making gin and tonics for them. You know what I mean? I don't know many other kids in 7th grade that are doing that. Can you make me a gin and tonic son? I love that. Where was your first restaurant job? The first restaurant job I had was actually a function as a kitchen steward for our fraternity. And that gave me great experience. I just signed up to do it. My freshman year. And from there, we had a chef her name was Martha, and she was an amazing cook. She cooked, you know, just great southern food. We're talking Mac and cheese and collard greens and fried chicken, and she could cook great. So I spent my time in the kitchen with her going over the food and the food quality and learning that way. And then the owner of the business that did this for a lot of fraternities. He taught me things because I asked about food costs. What is your food cost? And he had the real simple answers of. It's a third of what you should sell something for. If you're going to sell something for a dollar, your food costs should be 33 cents. And from there, I just went worked at a different. I can't even remember all the names of them. Just different college bars and other people worked out that I could jump on to and working for these entrepreneurs and learning about food. Do you realize how hard of a business it is and you also realize you have to love it. And I loved it. I loved the restaurant business, and it was like, I love the teamwork. I love the immediate gratification of cooking something and serving something to somebody, and them smiling. And saying, and that was good. So you are one of these, I mean, I worked in restaurants when I was in high school and I liked it too. You know, I worked at a pizzeria and even more to the gas station, making the burgers and chopping the onions and actually I think that's why I know how to cook today because I did it back then. But I can't say I loved it, but it was something about restaurants and the intensity of working in a restaurant that you just loved that you just connected with you. It's two things. One is my mind's always rolling. It's always thinking of ideas. It's always these things. And it's therapeutic to me. If I'm on a fry line and cook, I can focus on. Fry the chicken. Do the fries, deliver the box. It's immediate gratification. It's like some people why they like to cut their grass, right? Yeah. But then two, when you're slammed and busy, you're working. With a team and everybody's high stress, but that teamwork. And when you're just cranking together, you know, servers like we're slammed were behind tables upset, no problem, we'll get it right to you. That intensity is good, and maybe that came from, that's way sports is, right? Sports is high intensity. You got to make quick decisions, you got to roll and do it if you mess up, make up for it. Keep going. And I think, you know, when you get done with your day, you don't have a problem go to sleep that night. And you accomplish something. You accomplish something. Was there a point in college where you thought, I think I want to do this? I think I want to, I want to start a restaurant or run a restaurant professional because you were studying telecommunications. It seems to me that you already in college were thinking, I think this is where this is where I'm headed restaurants. Yeah, absolutely was, you know, it was, it was something I knew I could do. And I also, I wanted to, what I wanted to do was open a restaurant at the north Gates of LSU. I wanted to be home. I loved LSU. And I was a college student. That was familiar to me. I knew what college students wanted to eat, I knew how much college students could spend. I knew what environment college students wanted to come to. I knew hours of operation, I knew I'd have a late night restaurant because they're up late, they're studying or going to the bars. And so I knew all this. And so I looked at concepts and what kind of restaurant I want to start. And at that time, boneless chicken was becoming incredibly popular. It was just really becoming popular. Back in the 80s, people started saying that red meat was terrible for you. All these studies came out. A lot of people were saying, look, chicken as an alternative. But not just bone in chicken, which is what I grew up on. You started getting boneless chicken. White meat, boneless chicken, strips, or fingers, or nuggets. And you were seeing them on menus from airy war to national chains like chilies would have it on the menu with a great dipping sauce. Our mom and pops would have it. Like I saw it everywhere, and we ate it like crazy. And it started seeing them like, man, this trend is going. And you had people that specialized in it. Guthrie's chicken fingers throughout the south. Zaxby's chicken fingers and buffalo wings and different concepts like that were opening and doing well with it. And so I thought that was a really good concept to start. So I called my old buddy, Craig sylvie, dear friend, still today. And told him what I wanted to do and the restaurants. And I talked to him, and he said, hey, this sounds pretty good. Let's go and do this. And I said, are you serious? He said, yeah. And Craig, by the way, Craig was at LSU. Craig was an Ellis shoot. And it was a high school friend of yours. Yeah, I actually Craig and I had gone to school since middle school. Friends. Plus, you know, I just knew I could rely on him. He's got that kind of guy that always has it back. He's one of those one of those kind of Friends. So when you, when you reach out to Craig with your idea, what was the idea you told him you had? What did you want to do? Yeah, I told him, I want to do a college restaurant at north Gates of LSU. I mean, I knew where the area wanted to be. But back then too, is you got to realize I was thinking about just one location. That was my dream. I wanted everybody to say, man, that's the coolest restaurant. That's the greatest place. That's where we eat. That's our hangout. That's where we get our chicken fingers. Yeah. And you knew that it was going to be chicken fingers, fries, and drinks. Absolutely. Absolutely. If you look at it, our menu is like what Guthrie's originally came back up with like in the late 60s, you know, is that chicken finger meal with the sauce and the fries and the coleslaw and the Texas toast. I wanted to take that to another level. And I wanted to make it better and I wanted to make not only the menu better, but the operations better. And have a little more character. But I'm curious because you're 22 and you're thinking, let's focus on one thing. And that's a really smart thing to think. Okay, that's like a really sophisticated way to think about a business. But usually that doesn't come until many years later of just trying and failing and trying and failing, but already at the outset. You came to the realization that focusing on one thing is the way to go. And I wonder, I mean, did you come to that realization? Purely out of working for other restaurants and seeing the way they were doing it wasn't working or was there another influence that led you to that belief in that view? You know, I think a lot of it was just instincts and just part of me and so I just always been a focused person and also too is I had worked at different type restaurants, right? Restaurants that served large menu. Mexican restaurants had had so many different menu items, all that. That intimidated me, doing all those different items and doing it well. It is, it is very, very, very hard, you know, because the restaurant business is hard enough by doing it. But if you focus on doing one thing, that I knew I could handle at my young age, and look without having management experience, and restaurants. I never managed to restaurants work there. These different restaurants. So that was less intimidating to me, saying I can execute on this. All right, so you reach out to Craig with this idea, and he says, hey, that seems pretty good. He's still at LSU, right? And about to graduate to, same time, you're about to graduate. Well, so no Craig, 'cause he changed majors had another year of college, which actually was great because I was able to graduate and come back to Baton Rouge. And Craig was able to enroll in business classes. Which he had had before, but it changed his major to general studies and get a minor in business. And Craig and I went through the classes he could take and he enrolled in business planning class, which was great because neither of us had a clue on how to write a business plan. And we used that semester of his class at LSU to write the business plan. And just to be clear, you had just graduated from university of Georgia. So you're back in your hometown of Baton Rouge, and what were you actually doing? Were you working in town? I bartended at night. And while Craig was taking these business planning classes, I was going to use other resources in Baton Rouge area. Small business development center. Service corps of retired executives. These are retired executives that help aspiring entrepreneurs or people in startup businesses. All while Craig's going to class and learning about writing the business plan and we're applying all this stuff during the day when he wasn't in class. But at night I had to bar things. Look, I had to live, man. I had to pay my rent and I had to eat and I had jerk a few beers. So you were going to these like free programs that exist and cities all over the country. The retired executives mentors and so on and you were saying, hey, this idea for a chicken restaurant. Yeah, absolutely. You know, I regretted not taking a business plan in class, but I was doing a crash course and used every research I could. Not only were these professional organizations, I went to. I went to every smart business person. I knew that started their own business. And Baton.

"Crinkle cut fries, Texas toast, and coleslaw. You can get a fountain drink, ketchup, and a container of cane's special dipping sauce as well. That's it. And what that means is that if you only have four things in your menu, you better be pretty confident that those four things are exceptional. Because raising canes doesn't have burgers or frosty shakes or hot dogs or tacos to lean on if the rest of the menu sucks. But Todd's vision at least at the beginning wasn't to build an empire of restaurants that now numbers more than 600. He simply wanted a place in Baton Rouge, where students at Louisiana state university could hang out after football games or after a night of partying. And while lots of people suggested that Todd introduced classic Louisiana Cajun spices or even healthy options like salad, he stayed laser focused on his short, simple and efficient menu. But going from one restaurant to 600 wasn't a seamless journey.

A Listener's Reaction to Tucker Carlson's 'Testicle Tanning' Story

"Listen to the email from Jay in new London. Tucker Carlson's piece covered testosterone and sperm count levels in men plummeting. I didn't realize that's a thing. I guess men are having their sperm count levels in testosterone levels, plummet, to catastrophe. It's a trend when Jay and new London is excited about the answer because the solution apparently is treatments to boost testosterone levels and sperm count levels that involve testicle tanning now PS I don't doubt that Jay and new London is very serious about his email because he goes on to scold me. Here's what Karen, I mean, Jay in new London said. You have a tendency to blurt out assumptions on stories that you have not fully vetted. And it's not a good practice. That's Edward R murrow, writing from the grave. No, no, it's Jay from new London, Connecticut. Please start researching your dialog before you announce things that aren't true. What did I announce that wasn't true? I am assuming admittedly that men who are testicle tanning aren't the kind of man that our fathers and grandfathers and great grandfathers were, Jay. Now, maybe your grandfather would like to get his testicles tanned to help his testosterone count. But I'm going to suggest that mine would not.

Caller: 'Rules for Radicals' Specified Technique to Get Kids Into Sex

"I'm a long time ago I was reading something that I can't remember where there's rules for radicals or something And they specify a technique And the technique was to get the children in America interested in sex at an early age And I thought to myself who are these people And will they ever stop I seriously seriously doubt it I think they have an agenda that will carry on until they achieve whatever it is they're after including putting us all in chains or just putting us all in a hole And you can see by Russia What's going on in the Ukraine and this little off keep but nevertheless I see World War II coming at me all over again because I'm old enough to remember I lived it on the radio And I see these people being lined up and shot and thrown in common graves and whatnot And the technique of using useful idiots in this country in this time and place will serve the people who want to become our masters very well because all they will do is line them up and shoot them when they're done with them It doesn't matter to them They have no conscience I totally understand what you're talking about And again I hope and pray that we don't have people getting lined up and shot in America But I understand where you're talking about how people will come and take over a society take over a thought process tell you what and how to believe how to act what to do and what we're going to do with your children as we pervert them And not only is this a perversion of children but it's a perversion of democracy it's a perversion of this republic and it's a perversion of all things good and holy And I think you bring up a good point Richard in that you're right This is not just specifically to children They're trying to tell us how to live and where to live

Mike Gallagher Celebrates Early Birthday in Las Vegas

"But after the long weekend I had in Las Vegas, Las Vegas to sort of celebrate my birthday with some dear Friends of mine. A little early birthday by a couple of days. And let's not talk about my birthday. I hate my birthday. I hate birthdays in general. I get in trouble because I forget my Friends. I forget my family. To me, I remember years ago, Eric Hansen, who's been my loyal operations manager for over two decades, used to take his birthday off. And I thought that was the craziest thing how anybody would take a day off for their birthday as an adult. Now if you're 14, I don't know, but people take birthdays very seriously. I dread them because it is a reminder of my grim march to the grave. I don't feel almost 62. Some days I feel 80, some days I feel 29. So good friends of mine, peg and Joey Hudson said, let's go to Vegas. We'll see Lionel Richie. And while we're there, let's carry Underwood. She was great Friday night, Lionel Richie, not so much because he canceled as we showed up to see his performance, which is something that would have been like a bucket list. Can you imagine seeing Lionel Richie in concert? He had a bad back. I literally said to the guy blocking the entrance when being told that Lionel Richie had a bad back, what? He can't sing with a bad back. What's in his back four to sing? I did shows in a hurt with a hernia. I did radio shows in my bed. I didn't say all that to him, but you know me. I'm selfish, and I'm impatient. And I'm instant gratification, and I wanted to see Lionel Richie, but we still had a great weekend, stayed at the Trump international hotel, great story from the Trump hotel, places packed, beautiful hotel, the Trump store, they can't keep Trump merchandise on the shelves. The lady told me as soon as they ship it in in the morning, it's gone by the end of the day. I would t-shirts, baseball caps, Trump golf balls, Trump paperweights, and people, you know, I'm sorry. Americans love the guy. And Americans are ready for a return to normalcy. Not just politically, but I've got to address this. I got to address how different Vegas is from so many other places, New Yorkers would faint. At how people in Las Vegas behave.

"Went on with Brett bear on Sunday report on Fox News Sunday yesterday. Our first cut, please of Wendy Sherman. I hope that China is looking very carefully at what's happening. We have a united world with very grave and very consequential sanctions on Russia. We understand and support a one China policy. But we don't believe that China, PRC, to take Taiwan by force, and we will do everything we can to deter that effort by the PRC, and I think they're watching very closely. In fact, I think they made that statement Brett because they've seen what's happened and they're trying to go on the offense, knowing that they ought to be on the defense.

Doctor Admits Great Barrington Declaration Was Right!

"And now another extraordinary piece of tape that I want to play from Florida governor Ron DeSantis is round table. So there's doctor Joseph Freeman, very similar to The New York Times article. He comes out and he says, look, I want to apologize to the other scientists with me here on Zoom. The proponents of the great Barrington declaration, you guys were right. Now thankfully, this doctor has the courage to admit that the people that we're talking about the lockdowns that are going to harm the need for interventions, this doctor Joseph Freeman has the courage to take responsibility and to apologize and to be a better human being because of it. Our public health officials are doing no such thing. And the data is there in striking colors. Now, I know the temptation to want to say, let's move on. It's time to get past it. We just went through a civilization altering event that we did to ourselves, wasn't like an asteroid came from outer space and hit us. We said, you know, next time we could break apart that asteroid a little bit differently or maybe we could consolidate our programming and our response. No, no, we did this to ourselves. Has the lesson been learned? Do you think our public health officials and our government officials are now less likely or more likely to put forward a response that we just lived through? Play cut 51. Personally, I would like to apologize to the three other scientists sitting with me here on Zoom. The proponents of the Barrington declaration, because I initially, I did think you all were crazy. Or dumb, or maybe you just didn't understand what I was seeing, but I now realize, actually, I'm sorry because I believe now you guys were correct. And you were correct from the beginning. And I wish that more people, including myself, have realized that sooner. So that's a doctor that has come out and has said the signers of the Barrington declaration, which of course was censored by social media, which said as infectious disease epidemiologists and public health scientists, we have grave concerns about the damaging physical and mental health impacts of the prevailing COVID-19 policies, almost a million people signed at 928,000 public health experts and doctors signed at most people didn't even know it existed. Now this doctor said, look, I was told to believe that you guys were nuts and crazy, but in reality, you were right.

"Scene. One apple take two graves is a cheesy nineteen eighties looking series. Looks like you found it on all vhs. Complete with video drops and lines. But that's the fun of it. Season three has just been released. And i chatted with terence cray the writer and director and one of the stars and christine nyland plays jane stevens basically. It's about kind of a deal with the devil and we talked about that during the interview. This is like an old vhs at somebody found somewhere and obviously that's on purpose so talk about the origins and especially you terrence. How you want to proceed with this so grave kind of role is a few things. One was coming out of an energy of myself Earning thirty and living back in my hometown. And you know kind of you know between jobs questioning a lot of question. I've aspect of my adult at what made me an adult. What makes you know growing up growing older and so it was kind of that energy less. I really wanted to kind of use something very out there kind of unfiltered. Like i won't do something that have demon than than like kinda over the top horror comedy and and you know. Obviously buffy was a big influence on me. Something that i basically wanted to make my own buffy and i want a little zany and crazy and i feel like the hfs commended itself to that and kind of merging those two things kind of zany demon Energy but also like this kind of grounded You know like getting older and what that means to you And christine what's it like for you. I mean it's kind of from what i've seen your kind of playing almost a multi generational kind of role. Her was that. Not you in the in the in the early two in the pilgrim days or was it somebody else faxes teams there with you like interesting one of the things we her have time. Rooms use those deprived and then we back ten years ago and you. he's on. who is you know in the black lives. And she's like much more the performance When gone darkness. But i haven't really had. The experience is about leisure remain forever. That was sort of a fun thing when gene not just fashion that she has like. Yeah definitely it. It's interesting that you kind of You kind of pick her up in two different parts of her life. And i guess your as the series moves on. It's going to as it has moved on around though but it too. So that's our here. You really be an anti yeah. One of the appeals is kinda like this quote unquote deal with the devil that literally goes back from there and it goes all through. The run of the series is going to impact them Really interesting is that something that terrence at appeal to you when you guys were sort of crafting with this was going to be like the idea kind of like state and and the the effective right of our errands around and stuff like that and you think what's really nice about this season that we kind of open it up to both dealing with right like we deal with jane parents in the season we all deal with the demon the main villain demon we his father which is Got more life shape shifting devil at You know demonic immortal entity and And i think there's a nice parallel there of life. How would you are parents and also like again with the kind of theme of getting older as you get older. You start to look at yourself in the through the lens of how you saw your parents like you're kind of like silently while we're my parents at this age. And what are they doing now. am i doing now. And so. I think there's kind of a nice beam. In the last season of ray of parentage their life they and like destiny and doom to kind of live out. What the warmer and i break free from it from a production standpoint. How much time did you have Between doing an episode or did you shoot a whole bunch of them at the same time. Kind of thing Yes we shot Each season we shot together all at once. We do all the even basically like shooting it would be a number of days and re jump around different locations but we basically look at. The entire team fell And then break it down. Usually a season would take summer between seven to nine days. I'm shooting giver. Taste some pickup and And then of course life post production and all of that with actor but yeah. That's how we did it. Every year we would tackle another has a feature christine so As far as as far as you as an actor so probably the best way to approach it to is to approach it as a film and worry about what were the edits and everything is going to happen later. Yeah and the other interesting about the students like following it careers now. Mike track like what is the when the ark of the season. What is the arc of the show. What you need and each one of our the beginning and then route by the end of and like retract the truly ending. We're and talk about the makeup on this Obviously it was deliberately done in a way to kinda hinted buffy but also those haiti's movies that week knowing love so well yeah so We have an amazing Makeup artists your names beatrice sniper And she was very much on the same page. Kinda from the get-go. I remember when my conversations with her. She was very into the idea because she's special effects. Make up in like you know like horror film one of the things that really i would like that. She's not just doing gore. I doing like bread and butter. We hand shoes very type. Like actually designing characters used much involved with kind of designed characters as i was And so that was a lot of fun and build out you know the characters that come from like somewhat like you know like classical mythological right like yeah like a classical demon and the morgan being like this kind of classical deaths dot kind of things so it's kind of fun to bill out or american also one of the little flourishes that we can do with.

Putin is immortal or at least he's a mystical time traveler who's been serving the Russian people for centuries quote.

"To just not be so to sneak out of the building. Never happened again and ask for a match or anything I just had this I. still have the mask somewhere. If you didn't come out to winger seventeen than you had a total missed opportunity. I. I? Remember. Funny enough at the music that I had selected for that particular time was a stick fist rule, which is an amazing song, but it's of like a four minute intro. So I had. No one could edit thing. This wasn't like now where it's digital and you can just slide where you want the song like they just have to let that part play, and then I would make my aunt. Meanwhile, realizing like will cares, no one knows who they're waiting for wider waiting so long or what these stupid boggled drums are, and then like. Oh, there's getty kid the masks. So! Your love of tool then comes into things. Obviously as your name evolves correct, that was once probably some friends of mine ripped me mercilessly about being stirling spice and I was completely obsessed with tool and. I've just. This throughout rock and roll, there was Ronnie James Dio. Sterling James Keenan. WHO DO REX! Rex from Panther another. There's a couple of people that had like James Middle Days sure identified it as like a very rock and roll like it sounded cool. Jesse James Do pre like I just thought it sounded really cool, so I was like well I'm just going to gang maynard's last name and middle neighb- tagging. It sounds pretty cool, right and. It stuck. It stuck for awhile. What did you have that? Oh Shit moment that I just had a match that I believe in myself even more now. Um and it's tough to pinpoint like a particular match or an event it. I started traveled a little bit I was getting bookings outside of Pittsburgh which ended up itself. I felt like a Rockstar I was like see. I'm better than everybody in Pittsburgh because I could booked in Cleveland like not really the case, but that's kind of where my mindset was. ABSO- that it just kind of snowballed, I started getting bookings. You know, go to Cleveland I sorta. Go to Philadelphia and the work C. W ARENA FOR Like three P W was called. Which is kind of? Try To pick up the slack where that let off and. Some of the bigger names independence and I do a few shots here and there with ring of honor and I was like others something here I can. I still wasn't making money? I mean I would get paid basically trans wherever you go, and it wasn't until I started I. Really I gotTa break out of nowhere to go to England, and once I did that. That was really when the ball rolling kind of took off well, the names of the guys that you've gone over on. PUNK AJ Styles D Lo Brown Raven all these guys. I think a lot of people. And we'll get some of the concussion stuff in that here in a little bit, but I think a lot of people. Know you because obviously you're with the wwe machine now and you're commentating one of the biggest shows in the world, but a lot of people don't realize that even back enough cw an annex t you were training with the best of the best are the best of the Best I've been around with everybody man. We have like a WHO's who actually talked to agents about it this week on on my podcast after the Bell Bob about just. Just how long I've known these guys how long so many of them have been a part of my life like Aj? Samoa Joe Samoa Joe came to my little brother's graduation party on a whim because we had a wrestling show that night I was like. Hey, my brothers having a party because they're going to be food. Yup, so we went just we punk used to come to my. My parent's house would watch pay per views like. So many of these guys that are still household names. They were contemporaries, and in later years it was kind of to that. Seth rollins generation where he was tyler black, and we were kind of rub a Lotta the same circles and shows and I was always kind of there with these big groups people I'd I never had the luxury of being like the hot indie name where I was like the Darling for for that period of time I had a few stints here and there where people go pretty cool, but I've never had that massive appeal on the independence. With everybody and I've been in the ring with everybody and trained and traveled and. Yes it. Is Kinda funny when I step back? I've realized now that even as long as I've been on WBZ. TV The majority of our audience, only be as the the loud mouth, big mouth, broadcaster right not realizing that I have credibility in that like I've been in the ring with most of these guys, you know what I mean. You've beaten most of these guys. I have well I've I was great about the creative control and. Not Letting anybody. Tarnish my good name. The name of Sterling. Spice nobody can tarnish. So over at FCW is actually we met I remember the day we met. I had. Steve Kernan Industy hadn't come over to do some stuff over. At FCW. Some stuff with Wyndham with Bryant, and with Bo and I think Damien Sandow I did a little run in with and I.

I was at the Lakeland Hal show because they would have a handful of. guys go to every like local Florida Market House show to the WB House show it just sign autographs and seventy percent of the crowd had no idea who we were. We were just this table. Set up the concourse like hey, here's my eight by ten and a great. Who are you again? What do you do? It was just an attempt to kind of familiarized our audience that next even existed. And actually I think I think it was an excellent. We started doing that. Maybe it was still FCW I right towards the end up W. Yeah, it's it's entirely possible. We were just out there.
