A Recipe for a Hollywood Fight

"Michael viner was the owner of dove publishing. He had a number of decent books that came out in the 90s, the most famous one was you'll never make love in this town again. And when I was dating Jermaine Jackson's ex-wife, Margaret Maldonado. She was working for him at the time, but for Michael viner. And one day she sneaked me in early copy of this salacious book, and no one had seen it yet, Margaret got the proofs and begged me not to show or tell anyone about it. I said, no, no, I won't. I'm not going to write about it. I just want to read it myself, okay? So I go back to the hotel or wherever I was and start reading this book and the proofs and maybe two years ago, I read a couple of the more filthy chapters on this show. The book contains a bunch of stories written by three prostitutes and one actress about this sexual encounters with a bunch of different Hollywood celebrities. There was a Robin and Liza grier, Linda Hammond, and Alexandra daddy. And inside are all these lurid tales of what these girls discovered while having sex with the likes of Nicholson Warren Beatty, Don Henley, Bruce Willis, Robert Evans, John Claude Van Damme, Mickey Rourke, on and on. And a very, very detailed stories. Whether they're all true or not, I don't know. It's just the horrors point of view. So my jaw was on the floor when I started reading this. A couple of days later, I'm at Evans house for one of his great get togethers. Robert Shapiro, Geraldo Rivera, Jacqueline bessette, Beverly Johnson, Neil sedaka, a lot of luminaries in addition to the dynamic to all of Jack Nicholson and Warren Beatty, who are always at Evans house back in the 90s, and now I have all this information inside me bursting out and I don't know that Jack Warren and bob know about this. And then my eyes couldn't believe what I was seeing. The publisher Michael Weiner walks into the party. And he lived a few doors down from heaven, so it kind of made sense, but I know all this information from the book he published and I grabbed Margaret and I go, what the fuck is he doing here? She's like, what's the big deal? I go, he's publishing a book about what a few hookers have to say about a few of the men at this party. But balls on this guy,

How Do the Next-Gen Marxists View Sex? James Lindsay Explains

"Talk to us, I talk kind of terrorism for many years for the Defense Department. I got to understand a little bit about how the new left looks at sex when we examine the weather underground, a domestic terrorist organization, which is associated, which is linked to Obama through its founders and leaders like bernadine dornan Belair's. They had a phrase smash monogamy, meaning monogamy, a man and a woman together is a bad thing. There should be infidelity or there should be no even concept of fidelity. We'll explain the broader, dark reality of how the next gen left, the next gen marxists look at sex between a man and a woman. Yeah, for sure. And just as a kind of a pointed aside for the moment, you mentioned the weather underground. So of course this was led by Bill ayers, another friend of Obama, but he also was a strong supporter of this woman. Most people have never heard of who implemented common core since we talked about education by the name of Linda darling Hammond and Linda darling Hammond was a big friend of Obama. She, like I said, implemented common core, very significantly, but she was also heavily praised and supported by the weather underground and Bill ayers and specific. So these connections are very important to recognize. As far as far as I bring that up, she is actually instrumental in creating and implementing what's called social emotional learning, which is how they're bringing the comprehensive sex education to the kids in schools today. And so then you have to ask yourself, well, why are they bringing this comprehensive sex education the way that they are, the sexualizing of children, the grooming of children, both politically and sometimes unfortunately sexually in schools. And the answer is that the marxists have known that this is a absolute powerful, it's like a nuclear bomb against the society to sexualize the children. George

"Ordinary living. Sure, we may gather for the holidays or celebrate weddings or significant moments of real joy, the big wins, the markers of time. But what about the day today living? I think we need more awards for that. More awards for putting on our shoes and going to the office or brushing our teeth in the morning, doing the dishes. I was once on the subway in New York City at some ungodly hour. It was maybe 6 in the morning, and I had to be in the office to set up something for a sales meeting, meet a caterer. I can't remember. But I was surprised at how busy the subway was that early. Folks had their kids all ready for school, people had lunches packed and coffee in their hands. I remember having the overwhelming feeling of wanting to shout, I am so proud of us at the top of my lungs. And I was proud. Life is like that. You think you're just slogging along and then something reminds you that just getting up in the morning and choosing to live is something miraculous. I try to hold that with me a need to hold that with me. In today's poem, we witnessed the rapture that comes when you've come out the other side of sadness, shaken off the blues and entered the world again. A warning, this poem does mention suicidal ideation, so feel free to skip this episode. But at the core of this poem, is the light that comes after the clouds have cleared. Hammond B three, organ cistern, by Gabriel, kava karesi. The days I don't want to kill myself are extraordinary. Deep bass. All the people in the streets waiting for their high 5s and leaping, I mean leaping when they see me. I am the son filled God of love, or at least an optimistic undersecretary. There should be a word for it. The days you wake up and do not want to slit your throat, money in the bank, enough for an iced green tea every weekday and Saturday and Sunday. It's like being in the armpit of a Hammond B three organ, just reeks of gratitude and funk. The funk of ages. I am not going to ruin my love's life today. It's like the time I said, yes, to gray sneakers, but then the salesman said, wait. And there out of the back room like the bakeries first biscuits, bright, blue, kicks, iridescent, like a scarab. Oh, who am I kidding? It was nothing like a scarab. It was like bright, blue, fucking sneakers. I did not want to die that day. Oh, my God. Why don't we talk about it? How good it feels? And if you don't know, then you're lucky, but also you poor thing. Bring the band out on the stoop. Let the whole neighborhood hear. Come on, everybody. Say it with me nice and slow.

"Started by simply trying to preserve it and ended up raising over $300 million to turn it into something incredibly unique to the city. This interview is really about his personal story and ultimately how he also became a Vedic meditation teacher. It's a bit different from some of our recent guests, but he's an unusually interesting guy with a great story. Now, here's Robert. Robert it is so great to have you on untangle today. Thanks so much for being here in the middle of your really busy day. This is a fun break from lots of others in meetings. Oh, good. When I don't know someone very well that we're having on our show, I like to get a little bit about your background. So we tell us a little bit about who you were as a ten year old boy. The ten year old Robert Hammond. Yeah, I like that question. I don't think about it very often. I was living in San Antonio, Texas, where I had my whole childhood. I felt like a different kid. I knew I was a little different. I felt like I liked different things than my peers did. I wasn't really into sports. I liked drawing. I was a little chubby then. I was really conscious that I looked a little different. I knew my family was different. My mother was not a typical housewife. She didn't have a job, but I think now she would be almost a performance artist. She never considered herself an artist, but I think she very much is an artist. And so I grew up with an unusual childhood. We would make a paperweights. She would boil lead in the pot in the kitchen and pour it into shells and make paper weights, which might not have been safe. One day I asked her about paper, so she cut some of the screen out of the screen porch and got some bamboo from the yard and put it in the blender and we made paper. Wow. One time she had the largest collection of kites in the U.S., I just don't know where she came the national pipeline champion. And she just had a lot of collections. Her artworks were her collections and they were all over our House. So I really now in retrospect are really special old childhood. When you were going through it and you say you felt like you were a little bit different, did you feel like how lucky am I? I have this adventurous, different mother. I was embarrassed. It was jealous of the moms when you came home and they were baking cookies. I was embarrassed and I'm gay and there was also some of that mixed up, even though it wasn't like about sexuality. I knew that I had different interests than most of my friends that were boys. Yeah, there must have been a lot going on. And then I read an interview where you said you really did deal with some depression and anxiety, growing up, how did all this feel in your little ten year old body? Yeah, it's sometimes wonder like when did it start or when did I start? And definitely in puberty where I felt more anxiety slashed, maybe depression. I think more when there became more comparisons. I think when I was really little and just in my family, I don't think I really, when I was blowing maybe before school or I didn't know that this was unusual or maybe that I was hospital. And my mom was so encouraging, she didn't care if I didn't. She didn't want to be a place boy. She liked that I liked art. And my dad who loves sports, all he made me do he said, you just have to go and play one tee ball game. And if you don't want to do it, I'll never make you do anything else again. And so I play and he thought I did a hit, I don't remember it. I got a hit and he said, oh he's gonna love it. And I was like, nope, that was the deal. I didn't like it. I'm never going to do it again. And he was supportive. Did you have a way to talk about how you were feeling? Was your mother, did she have a nurturing side or did you have a way to express that you were going through these different things? They were very supportive, but I didn't have a way of communicating that and the differences and the things I felt, especially when it came to sexuality I had no I think most good kids of my generation. There was no way to talk about that. Did you have any mentors or anyone that you looked up to? My brother is 9 years older and my sister 7 years older. And at different times, I became a swimmer, basically because I knew my brother liked swimming. That was the way I could have some kind of masculine activity. Dealing with anything with a ball, and I definitely connected with my sister more and felt more connection with her around girl stuff. The other thing I shared with my mom is she was obviously not your typical housewife, but she wasn't set aside from her period. She was a member of the country club. She did things she was in the clubs that upper middle class women are in. So it's like she belonged, but liked being different from them. I'm definitely been a joiner. And so I knew I was different, but I wanted to be accepted too. So I was very social. So that's something that was all always with hand in hand with my different interests. I helped compartmentalized in some ways in a different part of my life. You've talked about being a big self help guy, you're very introspective. You've done a lot of inner work, self care is really important to you based on what I've read about you. How does this all intersect with your life as you move from college into your adulthood? When you become a big self help guy, how you decide what you're going to read, what you're going to do to nurture or feel better. When you ask that question, I just thought about it actually in a way I've never thought about it is that there was this intersection of two things driving me one, I wanted to be successful. And if you'd asked me then, I guess it would have been financially successful. I was very driven. I was competitive. So there was this broad need for success and I guess maybe I guess underlying that is that affirmation or something. And I realized I was not happy. And I wanted to be happy. And so in some ways that the interest in self help was this combination of how do I improve my life? How do I get more done and happier?.

People fell in love with them. I've had a two book clubs based on those damn and it's amazing. How the women from those book clubs. They started a whatsapp group and they still talk to each other all day every day since the book club ended so it really it really created some bonds and deep friendships because the things in the novel our so vulnerable. I mean one one book club. We had to extend the book club because there was one club. All they did was they cried the whole time and i was like our gonna get nothing done this should. We don't have added another session to finish. This was hilarious. But it really touched them. And and so for me. That's that's such a feeling of accomplishment to to to push buttons on that level. But the thing that i think that is critical to to to know here is that there's no cinderella story when it comes to this that It takes years It takes you being consistent in creating a momentum and not giving up you know one thing led to another and i have to say that it's a very different world in publishing now than it was then publishers. I think champion do more back then Since then a new probably speak to this more now. If you go publishing deal they will know how many followers you have. You know all that kind of stuff. That really doesn't mean anything because you can have. No foul resume have followers. You know what. I'm saying right. But they think they're really pushing you into into social media so you've gotta have that going on And you've got to become inventive and the way you do things I have not done books for several years because i turned my I moved to don right. I moved to ghana. And i think that a lot of public publishers felt like i fell off the face of the earth which is not true us longer near the moon. Data's not near the moon. Not gun is like you know. Like i just bright is like you don't have to take a rocket to get this to surreal airplane roy. Yeah yeah and people buy books here. They buy tons of books more so than epochs. So ashley publishes a missing the mark by ignoring africa by ignoring europe. Where people still like a good solid book in their hand more than they like e books. So it's really a big mistake on their part to ignore this market. And i'm telling you what africa will not be ignored as i drive down the street every day and my books on the road and know they didn't come from the publisher. I know the that. Nick affidavit and the selling okay wow while they were like we wanted. We're to make make sure happen so one of the things you're last book you did was a self published book so tell us about that process. That was your first cell phone book will. Actually i bought it back from my publisher and repo and self published it. Because i felt that we were in an important time in history Kamala harris was running for vice president In the midst of covert the countries that did the best were led by women More women were being elected to heads of states and countries. Mike cousin mia motley is a woman is the prime minister of barbados. You know so. I thought that it was important. Time to talk to women because there was a lot of women's empowerment jargon floating around and felt that it needed to be put back into kingdom perspective before we hurt ourselves so i went to my publisher. I said i'd like to re release the book and they had reasons for why they couldn't do it in that timeframe and maybe by twenty twenty two. I said the conversation might be over by then. You're not gonna do. Anything can look back. They gave it back to me. Very graciously released it in a did very well. And it's still selling the power being a woman. We did a book club with it and You know so you've gotta take life into your own hands in publishing about now. Yes you can still get a great publishing deal. But they're not as fluid as they were before and you've got to come up with different ways of getting the word out if that's what you wanted to That is it. So michelle mckinney hammond. I really appreciate you. You hire singing you also in some movies or you're doing a little bit acting. Yeah okay so are all.

I loved racing. I mean the good the bad and the ugly of all of it. I've lived it. And i still love it. Love it bad when jeff hammond left. Dera walkers team during the nineteen ninety two season he was going to be putting together a winston cup team for kenny wallace at sabca rice and kinney was going to be running for rookie of the year honors. But steve he was going to be doing it against jeff. Gordon and bobby labonte all i can say. Is your luck kenny. Well here's the thing he's going to be going up against not only to future winston cup champions but he's also going up against to future nascar hall of famers now. Of course nobody knew that. At the time and jeff and bobby were every bit as raw as kenny was. As a matter of fact kenny had been running longer than either one of those guys had been in the busch series. So it was going to be a tough row to hoe. No question about it. That is a fine rookie class right there. We took note of that in the press. Win season started and bobby and kenny and jeff got real scrutiny from the price because the one busy how those guys are going to do that with a whole lot of potential in that small group in from jeff hamid's perspective. He's coming off a run with junior johnson and associates where he had worked with cal. Jabre it work. Darrell waltrip at junior johnson and associates and daryl's on team and he had also even worked with terry labonte for a brief period of time in nineteen eighty seven. So there's kale and daryl and terry who are three more nascar hall of famers thrown into the mix so when you've got the expectations of racing against a jeff gordon abbadi the bonnie and with a crew chief who had raced with kale jabre. Darrell waltrip in taylor bonnie. That's a pretty tall order. Well i'll tell you what jeff was fine company in his career. No doubt about it but this teaming up with kenny wallace.

Like oh you know. Make this so everyone can eat in. Love 'em take to markets The way we developer products is quite different from that and it's really deeply informed by the value proposition of our business. Which is diverting vegetables nutritious vegetables from landfills. When we first started out we worked with a group of small farmers in portland maine food shad and we also interviewed a number of trashcan facilities on on the eastern seaboard about what their surplus in remnants. Dreams were so we got lists from both farmers and facilities in what they were throwing out and we sort of taking taking those less. of course. the first thing i saw i'm jumping out at me was curates salary and onions. And what do you make with. Karen celery and onions. You make vegetable broth so the first chronic really was a result of looking out what the problem was. And any you know good home chef would do you look in your refrigerator. What's esther what happened are us or you cut your vegetables for various issues. Remain in you might put your scraps in the freezer. We're doing that just at kind of a massive scale on the same same with the new products that are in development. They're really based on a surplus streams and remnants streams that exists and now we're working with partners k. Through twelve schools hospitals elder care facilities just sort of tests our in different soups and sauces based on recipes that we've developed with with the surplus in remnants a lot of those partnerships. I think are very cool. I love what you're doing to work with schools in another partnership that you have. It's with one of my favorite network's one percent for the planet. We talk about it on here. A lot talked me a bit about Your partnership with them. Yeah well i known about one percent for the planet for as long as as long as patagonia has been doing that program and so when we first launched major one of our investors had actually worked with one percent and said oh you should check him out soon migrate partnership for you at some point. I see we learned about what the process was in. We already had a long standing relationship with glenn would center for food in firming in upstate. New york and glenwood is just amazing. Powerhouses of people led by kathleen finley and liz corio research development director and i had worked with them previous nine. My previous In my life before matriarch. Let's say on a number of project. And so i just called them up and i said you know we'd love to to partner with you. It's are the beneficiaries for our are one percent were still still a startup so it won't be much too much to start with but we hope it will grow and and It's actually become not surprisingly big. They're all amazing. They are a really a wonderful partnership. I think for both of us We've been able to support some of their new endeavors around food boxes and growing program. They have for community food as well as by pock firmer training program. So you know. I think we're already obviously in impact business but it's also nice to be in network and helping specific specific nonprofit that we partner with and then also you know our thought partners around some of the work that we're doing everyone on this season at least at the town hall is being asked this question. I find it so fascinating because everybody has a little bit different of an answer. But you know i'd be remissed biden. Talk about the pandemic. Hal did major foods pivot. Would you guys do during twenty twenty. Yeah i'm glad you brought that out. Dignifies feel like we have to keep it is. It is still very much alive. In most parts of the world. I think in the united states things are starting to ease up a little bit. Today marks reopening of new york in california but that is not true in most places. They're still an enormous amount of suffering. I will say that one thing. I feel so strongly about is. Is you know this increased responsibility that we all have now having learned what we've learned in having they're having been so much suffering during during that time which is still lasting is to create better systems and and more resiliency around food around food from things that we've learned or that that even if we already knew they were in existence more people are aware of no supply chain issues with food and the enormous level of food insecurity on not only in this country but all over the world. So it's it's certainly you know it's it's just fueled our work even more than we were already fueled so what happened to make sure we we. You know we've been we've been in existence for just three years. I launched business in twenty eighteen. And you know when we were making small small amounts of product until about the middle of twenty nineteen and then in the fall of twenty nineteen we were able to start commercial production and we launched our first commercially produced products in march of twenty twenty so literally the week that forbid shut down everything all food circle spot. We were able to hit in retail carton of the of the product our which we sold into programs in a very large discount that we're doing food boxes for frontline workers and also we worked on a project. We had a green out some Fed and we put together a partnership with table to table which is large of food distribution hub in northern new jersey era firms bad out to produce in hungary harvests to upcycle a half a million pounds of vegetables that otherwise would have gone to landfill into a healthy sue for distribution so we Through that process where it will also improve out that you know if you have the means of production you can produce really great healthy food in a pretty straightforward manner for large distribution which is a project.

"hammond" Discussed on The Down and Dirty Show

"My ass was messed up. Lowered feed is. Get me back to five thousand miles. I gotta go and get me back home. Pros you one thing. I won't be back the end of that race. I could literally see the bones on my right hand. It had just gone through the skin through the meat down to the bone. Here comes richard childress from the hymie not in iran but in a rush eagles is right there and pointed something under the hood. He's walking down the thing they're satan said. Run over there. We were not trying to show. Bobby allison up. What we were trying to do is to run the car. See what improvements. We made that. We could give it to bobby. The next week. I woke up or i became conscious in helicopter. And i have this memory of hearing the the problem. I do think this ford is made up of a genuinely great group characters metairie somewhere. I gotta figure control. The stern wheel the gas pedal and clutch. You came forward to keep me. He told me one time. Everything was a bit broke burnt or pregnant so listeners. Email your list of who you think was talking just then to seem ball at yahoo dot com and you might just come away with this amazing issue of winston cup sane. Speak in a direct messages on twitter. I received one last week from our friend. Chris wolf who is one of our patriots supporters. And he said. I was wondering whatever happened to the rest of the jeff hammond interview because after starting off with one. Three episode arc. On the first part adjusts career back episodes. One twenty eight one thousand nine hundred thirty. I wanted to kind of come back to jeff lighter really save some of the good stuff and did not overload on jeff hammond and go six straight weeks or anything so i wanted to kind of savings and i decided that i would go ahead and run. The final. Three episodes were jeff. And wouldn't you know what. I was actually at my computer editing. The jeff hammond interview. When i got chris's note asking about the jeff hammond interview so stave are william's sake with our listeners. Or what option whatever. You got going for rick casino. Be working pretty well. We're right into our folks this week in this part of our conversation with jeff. He talks about the influence of warner hodgson on junior johnson and associates. And how the addition of a second team for neil bonnett wasn't exactly the most harmonious of situations at all period. I pretty much says it right there. Rick jeff also discusses juniors reaction to the infamous nineteen eighty-six clash between darrell. Waltrip in del earnhardt at richmond. The break-up between darryl and junior and finally jeff takes us through some of the term all that caused him. Believe junior the rejoin. Darrell at hendrick motorsports then in our second segment. We're going to go back to the may seventeenth nineteen eighty-four issue of grand national sane and with the return to the cup series to middle tennessee and the national air yesterday and because they interview jeff hamid. I thought it would be absolutely appropriate. Dig into this issue and it features coverage of one of the most chaotic finishes to any race anywhere. The cores for twenty at the fairgrounds race. Track in nashville. That was a real controversial raiders for a couple of reasons number one the finnish itself for sure why very controversial and nascar interpretation of its own rules which create the chaos. And i think the fact that it was two teammates involved just added fuel to the far back. The other one was happy. Junior johnson because he didn't care who was declared the winner his team. Still one steve. This week we have more beer rebate money. From paul friedrich twenty bucks from to thirty six. Can-pack steve. I did not know that they made thirty. Six camp packs back. I said the first time all this happened. I've never heard of beer rebate money at all. I know you think you might need to check into the berry. Bait thing powell now drinks miller lite because it sponsored the two car for so long pow is a prototypical nascar fan because he supports sponsors in the sport he also drank red dog beer because they sponsored kenny wallace so listeners. If you can play supports on patriotic on supporters on pay pal. You make this podcast possible by doing that. And i truly truly mean that from bottom mart. I appreciate every single supporter out there. If you can do a monthly show support you can do that. At patriotair dot com slash. The same podcast. Or if you prefer just do a one time show of support you can do that via pay pow dot me slash. The same ball podcast. The championship still pretty close and eighty three. At what point did warner hodgson come on invading three eighty four. You know they started putting together. The organization called johnston hodgson. How big a deal was huge because it it really Junior is all about results. Hydrogen was all about this show and to go and from the buildings that he had built at At the farm juniors original deal parts rooms extra garage stuff he wanted. A junior had abridged could go across at one time. The other side of the pasture and said that wasn't good enough so he comes out and basically know he was into construction so he basically put a dot certified bridge across and between the two properties to levin was on the original side. I like to say in. The twelve was on the opposite side along with parts house in the main office of mutu and in the process of of putting a bridgen one wanted to make it look pretty like a mountain like where juniors play with north wooksbury kind of like mountain ash to your home. So you're not near that creek. All you going to do is make more flood problems for this episode. One or two. He has the creek reached widened. So where junior can have the same size creek. That was air regionally but then on the banks. He brought him big boulders and put in line those that creek with those voters are still there today and put in a helicopter pad and everything like that just took to a whole new level. May everything was clock more hollywoodish type stuff in the way. The cars were painted a double funder. Our uniforms were Really snazzy and you know really. I line type stuff Just the other three x brand new kentucky trailer brand new peterbilt trucks. You know just big step up as far as amount of money that we did a lot for the show. Part of it so much parts was a lot for the having a number one.

"The celtics per soccer practice facility in boston this billboard went up campaigning for becky hammon or terra lawson to be the next head coach again. Keira has worked on the celtics staff. She is just fantastic. Monico who do you think is the best bit to code the celtics. I don't necessarily have a name yet right. Although i liked the connection that care has but i have three cs. Candidates should have they've got to be able to connect with this squad. They got to be creative in the offense and the talents of these guys and they've obviously got to be able to convert in terms of everything that they're doing practice. I'm behind the scenes. Has the translate on the basketball court. Care i kind of liked that idea so this answer. I am no way shape before trying to take this coach away from the current currency. Which is nate. Mcmillan from. The atlanta hawks. Because i think the hawks likely will try to keep him. But i think what mcmillan has proven and shown what he can do with trae young. Just imagine what he could do. Because he's defensive money he has all the pieces. He has all the young talent offensively. Mcmillan would be good candidates as well as becky hammon. I think hammond that she can handle a team. I think she won the something. Many years back spurs obviously and she took control. That team did a great job. So i mean. I think there's some great candidates out there ought always chauncey billups after-sale. Who's put his time in as well. But i think make is showing that he can handle superstars and and take them to the next level. If the hawks don't take him snatching maybe it's up

The Straw That Broke The Bucatini Supply Chain

"Today on the show. I am joined by planet money producer. Alexi horowitz ghazi and alexi. Hello first of all parody cardiff alexi. You've brought us a kind of pasta mystery. Not just any pasta. Cardiff dismissed all about a very particular. Pasta shape called bucatini. It's basically just spaghetti with a hole in it in. The story comes to us. By way of a self avowed bucatini fanatic new york magazine writer. rachel handler. When did you know that you were bucatini. Hat or bucatini bopper. Look what do we call ourselves. Ivan bucatini had because. I just think it's cute but i definitely didn't grow up in a bucatini household by any means we are definitely spaghetti. Family the mystery part of all of this began. When rachel started to notice last spring that her beloved bucatini seemed to be getting harder and harder to find at our local grocery stores in new york until eventually it seemed to be totally gone and then one day in the fall rachel was on the phone with her also pasta obsessed mother who lives in chicago and her mom kind of mentioned off hand that she was having the exact same problem. Racial literally haven't been able to find bucatini anywhere and she was talking specifically about to check out. The check is a one hundred and forty year old italian pasta company so when she said that i was like slow mo i was like because i thought it was like a new york problem like a very classic. Sort of like you know history. I can't find my bucatini. Whatever like who cares. But then i was a coli though. Sorry can i swear. Oh yeah okay okay. Great it's like holy if you can't find it that means that this is a real issue. And then she told me that she had actually reached out to the customer service department to check. Oh i just sent them an email. it's a classic move. It was like full of typos. Which is like a way. That mom's ready meals. But her email said i am a huge fan of bucatini pasta huge in all caps. I have not been able to find it for many weeks at any store. It is my favorite pasta cook than the sentences in all caps with four questionnaires. Are you still making it. Please tell me how to get some not too long afterwards. Rachel's mom gets a voicemail from a regional dicicco sales representative named brian. And then when. She played me voicemail from brian. I was like holy like this goes deep. There is a cover up like something weird is going on. Brian told rachel mom that she was likely having trouble. finding check. Oh bucatini. Because of an fda hiccup the hecker exactly for some reason the fda which is the food and drug administration seemed to have put a hold on the import of check. Obu katini and now. Brian was telling rachel's mom to sit tight and check the shelves a few months down the road and the fact that this little pasta mystery seemed to reach all the way to the federal government. That was something that had dogged. Journalists like rachel could not in good conscience. Look away from. This is the turning point for me. Yeah the next day. Rachel pitched the story to her editor but in the back of her mind. She wasn't sure it would go anywhere. And i'll just felt so big. And i think all of us figured nothing would really come event. At least i did. I was like i'm never going to figure out what's going on but began calling to check. Oh i reached out to like five or six different people. Email and phone call and voicemail and no one got back to me and then i was like something in santa's happening and i don't know and at that point i was like there's there's a story hammond

BONUS - How to Grow Your Podcast with Colin Gray

"This bonus episode. I'm talking to one of my good friends. Colin gray of the podcast host dot com collins been writing about podcasting for over ten years. He's the creator of the popular editing software allah too and he recently published a book called podcast growth colin. Thank you so much for joining me on the show. Hey album thanks for having me on great to be here yeah. It's great to have you. yes it start. I just read the book. I love it. There's tons of actionable insights on how to grow your podcast audience. I guess i just like to hear why you and matt decided to write a book. Yeah actually i should give credit where credit student. Matthew put way more into this than i did so should really be here in the resume and lindsay harris real as well so hammond lindsay really lead on this and i contributed to so yeah i have to thank them for the reason we came up with the idea was really as we wanted to. We wanted to get something out there in the world. That was the next level podcasting so we the biggest question we always get launch. I'm sure that's the same with you as well album. Like people come along and see. How do i get my podcast out there in the world and ended disappear into the ether. And you you barely hear from them again. A next you know the podcast is defunct fallen off this fall by the wayside. This was really our attempt to answer that next question which people always struggle with which is how do i then make achieve those aims. I always wanted to you know how to make it work for me to grow that audience and i agree with advice out there. We have a lot on our website as well. But we really. We found that when we are working with people. When we're coaching people through takes just growth as a funny thing because it's long long-term espec- especially with podcasting. It takes a little bit every day. A lubbock every week a little bit on a regular basis is not one big thing. It's a little bit ongoing for a long term which makes it work. And that's really. The premise behind the book was the idea of just putting in as many different tasks many different activities as many different tactics. That can take anything from few minutes up a couple of hours but most of them are really short and actionable so that was kind of the idea behind it really to try and give everyone there one place to come to get as many different growth tactics the as as possible really will the book is broken like you said into dozens and dozens of these actionable tips and you explicitly right in the beginning. Say nobody should be trying to do everything in this book. Yeah so many tactics and it's very easy to see them and maybe get overwhelmed. I think he should do everyone. But really what you should be doing is flipping through and finding which of these i mean. Honestly they're going to end up being for you experiments. Do you want to try to see if it will resonate with your audience. Yeah absolutely and yeah. There's there's lots of different types as well so absolutely you could go in the way i see it working. Probably based as somebody picks up they have a flick through the pekka chapter. Possibly that seems to resonate with them. So something like. I am helping yourself by helping others or have we got here. We've got like user surveys of social media of communities that can thing so pick one of them even and actually just work through each of the tasks in that chapter one a week. And i think what a week we really well because it means that you've just got you've got your podcast making tame attack on an extra fifteen twenty minutes and you can do one of these growth tactics and start to grow and i think if you we we're we're not fans of hyperbole over the podcast kind of guarantee anything but if there's anything. I can guarantee if one of these tactics every week rebel year last by the end of that year your audience will be unrecognizable in terms of size and engagement and everything. So yeah i think. That's the intention dined.

"And I get the a P alert that Alex Trebek had passed away. Hey, lost his fight against cancer. And what a life though I watched the 2020 special lesson, Did you? How was it? Yes. Oh, so good. Michael Strahan interviewed him recently. And he was already getting up on his roof and like snow, blowing the leaves off and stuff. I mean, he was still very active. He hosted his last jeopardy game just less than two weeks ago. Oh, my goodness. Yes, it is working, but I didn't realize this about him. And maybe this was common knowledge. Just how charitable he waas how much he gave back and how he decided to write a book because he wanted that advance money to give to the charity Is he already supported and new Cherries? That kind of came into his consciousness and he was just A very generous man and to hear the stories about that was pretty cool. All right. Here's a little bit of that interview Lex from last night's 2020. Alex talking about charity and laughter. What do you want? Your legacy to be? A nice man helped people through hiss charity work. Was kind to everybody encounter, you know, Enjoy life. Make somebody laugh. I believe laughter is one of the greatest cures. That we can possibly have. It's right up there with prayer. Believe me, it is. I think it really is. You know, they're he's a even a 36 years. He's 36 years. What's crazy? I mean, even though he's Canadian, you know Alex. Alex is one of those pop culture icons. You know, he really is. He's one of those he's He's in the fabric of Americana. I mean, your other than maybe prices right and well, I think there's a trifecta there. When you look at game shows You in jeopardy is is just classic American culture and and the success of that show, I think can be summed up by the format. And host. I think jeopardy is Alex Trebek and Alex Trebek is jeopardy and it's going to be very interesting to see what the next chapter of that show was like. Um Because you know the old saying and and Shobha everybody's replaceable but showing the line but my goodness that's going to be those are big shoes to fill. I would not write down. I would not want to be The producers of that show. It's crazy. Um, speaking of the show, Lex, I know you saw this on 2020. Here's the story of him getting the job on jeopardy. This is you know. Ah Ah, This is interesting. What brought Alex Trebek to America that phone call? Alex got a call from Alan Thicke, another Canadian from Northern Ontario, well known from growing pains. Of course, he was developing a game show for NBC called Wizard of Odds. Wizard of Odds. And when it came time for him to think of a host, he merely thought of Alex Trebek. I had accumulated 16 weeks of leave at the CBC and I took a leave of absence. Ah, holiday with pay and went in audition for a show Alex audition for the job and got it. And in 1973, he moved to California to host Wizard of Odds Now here's Wiley. I first met Alex in 1973. You just knew right away. He was smart. This is a former executive producer of Jeopardy in control. He has an amazing capacity. Take it all in. I started with Wizard of Odds I did that three year they can't riding high replaced it on a Monday with so called high rollers with Alec. It was cancelled and replaced by a show called Battle stars. They kept lately for Layla, but they can't keep the host. That's funny. Yeah. And then eventually they decided to bring back jeopardy and, ah And and Alex got the job on DH then, like I said, became just a sliver of pop culture and you know that you've made in pop culture when you're spoofed on SNL. And you know, they reference that last night on the special mean he was everywhere. Here's a here's a little bit of Alex's influence on pop culture enjoyed stepping out from behind the podium. There were women here in Jeopardy. You're feeling very sleepy. Oh, I'm sorry, Peter. We were looking for King Louis. The 11th. This automotive tool is used to tighten bolts. And let's just go from soup to nuts. He has been in one of the greatest shows of all time. The Simpsons and he has made an appearance in one of the worst shows of all time. Baywatch. Did you see Who you just rescue Hey, Alex, Meet Alex. Alex Trebek from jeopardy! I don't believe this. And of course, there are the unforgettable Saturday Night Live parodies of Celebrity Jeopardy in which will Ferrell channels a deadpan Trebek Aziz mercilessly taunted by Darrell Hammond As Sean Connery. We meet again, you longer headed, tickle brained pump you Enough people often ask me. How did you feel about Sean Connery on? Have you ever met him in person? I said no, I haven't. But if I ever meet him, I'm going to get one of these. It's time for final jeopardy. And so this Wass never be afraid of poking fun at yourself self deprecating humor. Is worth its weight in gold.
