Wine and Beer Makers Wait for Recovery
"The pandemic started in March. I'd like the two of you to rate your alcohol consumption in one of the high Okay, uh, given on a percentage basis, Tucker, if you look at it, on average weekly basis, alcohol consumption in your household. It's a yes today today. Or like marks throughout the pandemic, So like when this first broke, I was having a glass or two every day just to use my nerves. But now I was that was that during the show or after Foa after you know, after I don't drink during the work of anything, Not yet, at least, um, but, you know, as of today, like, you know, I'm Once in a while during the week. I'll have a glass of wine randomly, but then on weekend, I'll just you know. I've been a glass of wine or a beer a night throughout all of this, which is definitely higher than my previous alcohol consumption. But there is no You know, weekend where? On drinking a bottle of wine with my wife on having two or three glasses. Journalist making is just that consistent glass tonight, right? Yes. So in terms of my consumption down for most the pandemic just when when your wife is pregnant, and you can't go anywhere like you just feel kind of weird about drinking alone Plus that look that you get Yeah. Have you gotten that? Look, you're drinking a nice glass of wine, and she's pregnant. Sit on the couch and just glaring at you. I've got you Just hold it up. And you're like. Oh, this is so wonderful, isn't it? You know, like you said, you didn't mind. Yeah, I would. I didn't need much sushi or drink much wine during the two different nine months that my wife is pregnant. But I would say, post baby, I think we're actually just about back to normal, like well, normally do like a bottle of wine on like a Friday or something like that. Maybe another one on a Saturday but generally don't really do much during the week. So we're about the same. But what wine and beer makers are saying is that even though consumers are buying Mohr stuff for home consumption, it still isn't enough to offset the fact that they're not going out. And drinking in the same volumes, which you could make a case right now be such a bad thing for our livers. But for these companies, you know they're looking at this saying, Hey, what's the deal here? I also do wonder for companies that don't have a hard seltzer brand. If that's eating into it as well. I mean, you know, we're in slightly different positions that maybe we were 10 years ago, Chuck, but I mean, we're I n the pandemic. And I were a 22 year old. I would imagine my alcohol consumption would be down very significantly, compared Tio what I was drinking at that stage in my life. I think mine would be higher. 22 years. I don't think so. The only thing constraining my alcohol consumption of 22 was the price. Yeah, Way cheaper to drink at home. It's fair. Oh, yeah. See for me. It was just I I didn't really drink unless I was at a bar. Oh, like hell up 22 year old tuck. Oh, yeah, yeah. Yeah, clearly struggling with with the restaurants and bars closed. There is just not nearly as much profit for any of these companies.

The Obviously-Going-To-Die Stocks
"We're going to start with the stock of the day. Don't call it a comeback bed bath and beyond has been here for years. It's just all that time someone else was running the company but now that Mark Trittin has been in the Corner Office for about a year. We're seeing days like today second quarter profits came in exponentially higher than expected. Same store sales were positive for the first time in four years. The stock is up more than thirty percent this morning. I'm assuming at least part of what we're seeing with the stock is some shortsellers saying that's it. I. Think. I'm. Probably. Bed, bath, and congratulations to march written and Beth by best buy bed bath and beyond. For this quarter, March, written formerly of target, of course, and a few other places before that, I think Nordstrom's and I believe. He had a stint at Nike to could be misquoting. This bed bath and beyond is in a group of companies retailers that I like to call the obvious obviously going to die crowd. And the funny thing about companies that are obviously going to die when they get the right mix of management decision making and in some help from the environment and you know just a little bit of because no one's more aware of a company's struggles at least no one should be more aware of a company struggles then the people inside the company. And that's when you plan your strategy. What are our tools? How can we navigate our way through whatever we found ourselves in business is not easy and certainly for this group retailers that I'm Gonna I'm GONNA hold up. Bed Bath and beyond as one Chris. But you know how about Game Stop Game Stop. The seller of video game systems and Software that of course is going to be the next blockbuster. Right if they writing that headline since two thousand and nine, how `Bout Michael's the craft store everybody knows I. Y has an Amazon run over. And the granddaddy of all of these. Companies that are obviously going to fail. They're obviously going to be taken bricks and mortar is dead is best buy which just before the podcast we were talking about how? How many listeners? Realize, that best buy has been at ten bagger over the past decade they went through some struggles they brought in new management. WHO had a plan? and. I'm sure they were mocked and I'm sure people were skeptical and they executed on that plan and best buy, which was a sub twelve dollar stock in. Two Thousand Ten two thousand eleven is today roughly one hundred twenty dollars stock. And so when you see. I'm a kick myself a little bit on dust by iron best buy bed bath and beyond his too many bees. Bed Bath and beyond. I actually did a little bit of work about a year ago as I was discussing with one of our with one of our foolish coworkers. About this basket of Taylor's who are sure to die. And we had this one. We had game stop we have Michael on the docket and I went through you know what this company's history of cash flow was and what they've done with it and how they've raise capital, and this is before Mr Trenton came on but I. It laid the groundwork for someone with. A better vision to come in and knocked the ball out of the park which you've seen today and and best bed bath, and beyond is as we speak it's now a six th bagger since March of this year and so in the a roughly a year ago when I did my work because I was vigorously debating co I pointed out that in the previous six years here was bed bath and beyond had produced four point two, billion dollars in free cash flow. They had also issued one point five billion dollars in debt and debated smart about the debt because the debts. Basically staggered I think is a ten twenty and thirty years. and. They have to pay it back anytime soon, and they had gone on a massive buyback program. They've they've retired a ton of their shares. Now. Slowly melting ice cube no one's going to want to own this business what have you. But at the time the stock was about ten eleven dollars the company is training but four times enterprise value of free cash flow. that. That is rock bottom fools that is something that is going to go away. That's what the market is telling you. Flash, forward, to today and oh positive cops. Oh. We have a plant. They've they've suspended their dividend they've they've halted their. They've halted their. They suspended the dividend halted their share buyback plan I believe in. April. But with this. With this. report, they have generated a ton of cash flow. They've deployed it smartly they took down some temporary which they had out as part of the PARCO vid. They have bought back twenty percent of that long dated not in any danger to come calling debt they bought that back at a discount. Which is brilliant. They. So they're down to their down net debt down by about thirty percent from where they started the year. They have a store optimization program, which is something that a lot of these retailers the slowly melting ice cube crowd will call them. They are reducing their store count 'cause they don't need it because they can move to ECOMMERCE, which they've done a little bit they can move to. The geography is able he served by less stores and you see a lot of. Traffic that previously went through one store transitions to another and. They are steal a Ron grosses them here they are firing on all cylinders and I'm not sure. Anyone. Thought is coming. I am I am both thrilled that they are doing this they're having success because everyone loves a comeback. I'm less thrilled that you own it and I don't. But. That's mainly because I had this in my hand a year ago Chris and I'm holding it up. The skull of York. And and I'm looking at it and I didn't at least put a little field position because as I said, at the time training for four times free cash flow that is close to no-brainer territory for me. So two other quick data points before we go to our next story. Not. Surprisingly digital sales of big driver this quarter. That goes hand in hand with the store closures so Another smart move by Trittin and his team. And also Happy to see that they're you know suspending the dividend that they're. Suspending the sticking with the we're not going to buy back shares. I'm also happy to see they're not offering guidance. Their New Orleans. No need to at this point. Let's move on the third quarter sales, for Pepsi, grew five percent and. Kind of like we saw three months ago snacks and some of the beverages particularly the Seltzer. Part of their portfolio helping to make up for the fact that somebody restaurants are closed. So many sports and entertainment venues are closed and. That's that's the stock is basically flat and this kind of flat for all of twenty twenty but. Nice to see that the the salty snack part of the business is making up for the sort of the tried and true Pepsi part of the business. Gilead household particularly the soon to be sixteen year. Old Member of the Gillies household has been doing his part to. To to help with the salty snacks portion and shareholders. Thank him. Yeah I was GONNA? Say. You know dude. There are other food groups other than Doritos. Look it was a perfectly acceptable boring quarter from a perfectly acceptable boring company and and I think you know Chris but maybe some of the listeners not know. For, me to call a company perfectly boring from for me. That's a compliment because I like businesses that are boring. Not Terribly exciting person myself I enjoy. Investments in companies that just actually do what we expect them to do, and essentially just get it done quarter after quarter. Pepsi is not GonNa. You know if you'RE LOOKING FOR PEPSI TO BE A. Ten bagger. You know anytime soon like the aforementioned by we mentioned earlier. That's not gonNA happen. They are just a steady bedrock performer for your portfolio and we all need a few of those. So we can go after the more exciting things in our portfolio. Yes. So it was it was A. It was a boring it was a boring quarter but boring is nice because boring boring says, oh, we end up four four plus percent on. Organic revenue growth total revenue growth went up five plus percent. EPS Is up ten percent year-over-year just for the quarter. It's still down for year to date, but of course, Mindy Stan why because the previous quarter? Cova. no-one no-one was new what was going on? So we kind forgive that. They are they're pointing towards the full year. They did give guidance their point point to a full year of approximately four percent revenue growth approximately five fifty core earnings. Stocks at about one hundred, forty bucks. So it's not cheap. But it's not terribly expensive, and again, this is one of those widows and orphans stocks. You can buy put it away and we'll see you when you retire. Hugh Johnston, who's the CFO at Pepsi? Granular on CNBC this morning talking about because when you think about all of the food and beverages they have across their portfolio he got granular talking about the new cheetos macaroni and cheese saying you know they're trying to keep up with demand as a fan of both cheetahs and macaroni and cheese I haven't tried it yet but I can see why it's popular. Any. Do they give any color on the? Two. Portals that they were direct to consumer sites that they launched earlier this year snacks dot com and Pantry shop dot com. Sadly, Chris they did not at least in the conference call or the press the presser maybe in the ten Q I haven't read the ten q yet obviously but. Yeah no snacks dot com I can confirm both of those sites are open and accepting offers as of this moment. SNACKS DOT COM and Pantry shop I think is an interesting one because they are. You know you are buying your you're you're buying all of your Pepsi Slash quaker products. Simultaneously in in in the various groups. So if you want your everyday Pantry, you want to get your your oatmeal and your healthy. Your healthy Chia bars and your rice cakes do people still eat rice cakes and if so why? You can get all those delivered at the same time or your snack package your breakfast package You know it's it's interesting to to have it delivered. I I'M NOT A. I I'm one of the three people in North America is still doing own grocery shopping. So I'm probably target here but I know a lot about the people how to use it and I think probably if I let my as I mentioned a sixteen year old note that this thing existed. It might be his only source of nourishment. So yeah, don't don't. On, the first time I went to that website I kind of went crazy to the point where in the box showed up to two days later even my kids were just like. This is a lot of snacks and was like, yeah I may have ordered too many but but I regret nothing. Playboy. Enterprises is returning to the public markets after nearly a decade and because I was are out of fashion, playboy is going to be doing this through a speck. Mountain Crest acquisition is a current special purpose acquisition company that is going to be taking playboy public through a reverse merger and wants to deal is done that company where the ticker is MC. ABC? Is. The playboy name and the ticker symbol P L B Y? I guess I, I saw this story and I thought, okay I'd that's one way for playboy, which is a private company and has been since twenty eleven. I. Guess That's one way to raise money. I, I, I'm hard pressed though to think that. The second round of playboy being a public company is going to go any better for the company and for investors than it did the first time around. That was my initial take as well, and you say it's one way to raise money I'd say it's one way for insiders to cash out. Tomato Tomato. The more I think about this though. I could be spectacularly wrong and it wouldn't be the first time. This might be quite this might be interesting I can see. I can see a number of thing, and I just find this interesting from a number of re. I as you point out. Yes, playboy. Is private the SPEC the Special Purpose Acquisition Company Mountain Crest Acquisition, company. It's out there. Now it's got. It's a walking wallet got a bunch of cash their stocks over ten dollars specs go at ten bucks. There's nothing you can. You can go buy today Chris if you want. And You can just sit there and wait until the transaction is completed in q one. If. You WANNA own playboy. So, playboy today is not playboy of the past for thing, magazines have died. So, there are no issues of the iconic famous magazine. These no regularly published issues and I believe they went to quarterly publishing versus. Monthly publishing before that. So what playboy is trying to be or this new iteration trying to be a licensing company and they're calling it across four major categories they're saying sexual wellness, which I'm just going to skip to the next one, which is style and apparel which is. Apparel. and accessories for men and women globally gaming and lifestyle also digital gaming hospitality and spirits. So you can get yourself some playboy-branded Bourbon. And beauty and grooming, which is fragrance skin care grooming cosmetics for men and women. Okay. That sounds interesting. They're not a publishing company more avoiding that and I guess they have a bunch of online stuff as well which. Tell people they can go look on their spare time but. They are calling themselves a streamlined high growth business. The company has four hundred million in cash flow contract through the next eighteen years. and has products available for sale and in ten thousand major retail stores. In the US, this is a brandon company. Now, now, what you think of the brand and what you associate with the brand, the iconic a bunny ears brand, of course. Is Is. is going to be probably a nuanced and varied. I can understand why some people. Would not want to do with this brand I completely understand that is not. Bend the most shall we say progressive brand in history? It has fostered some. Attitudes, particularly women that. I think it's fair to say some would find distasteful and I I completely understand why? And for those people, they're just not going to be shareholders and that's that's fine. But what I find interesting about this if this, if the licensing deal and we have, we've already had a certain dry run of this in. Do you know the magazine Maxim? It was. So it's a men's lifestyle magazine, girly pictures, and whatever it was bought by an entity called big holdings. I'm going to say eight nine years ago. With the goal of they went into change it from the the lad magazine into more of a lifestyle brand licensing deal what playboys doing. Now. I mentioned earlier it's important to have You know leaders businesses, you respect and trust big lorry holdings is not one of those businesses but I do know that they even though they're circulation sales are down significantly there they have turned that profitable on a small scale with the licensing strategy. I suspect the playboy will do a better job. And It will depend on the valuation coming out but you know when analogy I might throw up as. As a comparison is. Franchising businesses in the in the restaurant space. So a restaurant brands international, which owns importance and Burger King. Dunkin brands, which of course owns your beloved Dunkin donuts. Those are those are check cashing businesses, they they sell the franchise to a Franchisee. And then take tax six percent of their gross sales and royalties every month plus x percent for advertising they sell you a system and so those are very asset light cash-rich capital Genita- businesses. And part of me wonders here it's obviously not the same as selling. Coffee and whatever. But part of me wonders if that is what this business will look like, and if they are truly in the growth business and the cash generation business, this might be an interesting opportunity. And you just hit on what I think is the most interesting thing to watch. Once it becomes a public entity again, the high growth aspect of this because now we're going to see Now, we're GONNA see through quarterly reports. Okay. Are you growing? Because that's one of those things where we investors and the market in general get to decide what we consider to be high growth And I again I had I had your initial take which was. Oh please. Like if it didn't work the first time. It's going to work less well this time. The more I read about like. I'M GONNA keep an eye on this. Curiosity. Jim Gillies always talking to you. Thanks for being here.
In The Morning (MM #3466)
"The Maisonette with Kevin Nation. I'm one of those folks who if I see something on the Internet talking about health and things to do and try to better yourself. I'll look at I won't necessarily be due but I'm always trying to at least think about bettering my health and I've always seen some things about the first thing you should do when get up in the morning now nutritionists and doctors are agreeing the first thing you should do its drink a glass of water off matter whether you're thirsty or not. There's something about the body needing to be replenished rehydrated from overnight when you were sleeping. It doesn't matter whether you're actually feeling it or not. Your body needs to be rehydrated. So the best thing I could do first thing in the morning get up and drink a glass of water. Now the good news if you don't necessarily like water out of the tap, you can have a seltzer water you can have something that just water-based the more you can rehydrate yourself before you do anything else the better off you'll be so drink a glass of water before you drink your coffee. Yeah. I'm not too thrilled about it either although really even though it's maybe not the first thing I do in morning before I ingest anything else water was always the first beverage maybe I'm on my way to health. We know better than Thursday.
With Jockstrap-Scented Candles, Babe Wine Wants to Bring the NFL Home
"Wouldn't want to spend twenty nine dollars on a candle that smells like a jockstrap well, plenty of people. But Hey, if that's your thing now you can babe wind. The official wine of the NFL has launched a line of Senate. Candles intended to bring the entire football experience including the locker room into your home. The twenty twenty NFL season kicked off last Thursday night, and with only a few exceptions, fans can't be there in person this year. So what better way to experience the joys of life football from the sweaty jock straps to the smell of overpriced eighteen dollar Nachos then to invest in Sports Senate Kennels at least. So goes the thinking of the marketing folks at bay wine babe is a can wine owned by anheuser Busch inbev parent company. Of Budweiser, when founder Josh Ostrovsky started the company back in Twenty fifteen it was his goal to make babe the bud light of the wine world know Somalia needed here guys behind the cheeky ads. Is a strategy intended to pump up online sales and the funny bones of Anheuser Busch's most coveted hard to win over market of millennials. As we've reported here before beer sales have been flat lining for some time younger drinkers in particular are increasingly turning the cocktails hard seltzer wine and wine spritzers although it's still the tiniest of all spirits, categories, sales of canned wine or bubbling over over the twelve months ending this June off premises canned wine sales grew by almost eighty percent according to Nielsen off premises. Sales are all those purchased outside bars and restaurants by the way clearly where all the action has been happening the last six months. All these stats are serious business for Babe wines huge parents searching as it is for ways to continue growing as its core product beer struggles. But let's go back to the locker room. Shall we examined the connection between Anheuser Busch's falling beer sales and candles that smell like musk and men's deodorant? Well, no one's buying the bud light of wine for the way it's grapes are grown now they're buying it 'cause babe wine is an instagram hit Ostrovsky is better known by his instagram handle the fat Jewish. He has ten million followers. The brand has one hundred, eighty thousand. So far Ostrovsky is nothing if not both funny and provocative, the brand partnered with dating out, bumble this summer to pay the moving costs to people sick of the X.'s they got stuck living with during the pandemic the two companies mocked up a bright pink truck emblazoned with the sign, your XS canceled babe and Bumbler here to help you move on literally. To enter the contest participants needed to what else tag themselves on the Instagram Post like the signature background in all of its ads, babes, stunts, or designed for instagram especially to attract younger women market anheuser-busch fervently wants to grow. If it's not obvious by now the candles themselves may makes some money. You can buy all three for sixty nine dollars, but they're primarily an attention getting device it to get you to stop scrolling in hit the buy button on a box of canned rose eh read or Pino Griego it's online marketing shrewd. You might say but it's not like babe wind has the wind can market to itself. There are at least one hundred brands of canned wine as makers scrambled to get a sip of this growing market while no single brand stands out as the most popular one that poses a challenge to babe wine is yes. Way Rosa like babe wine. Yes. Way Rosie was launched on Instagram in two thousand thirteen friends Eric Blumenthal and Nikki Hugo near started as an instagram account celebrating Rosie wine. Selling actual y came later the fashion editor and art director soon had a hit on their hands in twenty eighteen there bottled Rosa caught on at target just this year they began selling their grenache blandon Pastel pink cans. Yes Way Rosa doesn't have the NFL stamp of approval minds you but with almost no one in the stands that stadium branding is far less valuable than it would have been pre pandemic and that gives the women behind Guess Way Rosaiah a lot more runway. But they're going to have to come up with something pretty startling to steal attention back for turf, Nacho and. jockstrap scented candles.

Brought it back. I love all the all the is actually a new discovery for me, and now I describe it as like a less expensive trader Joe's. Isn't that kind of what it's like pretty much which is crazy because trader Joe's is already inexpensive. Like yeah. It's like the dollar store trader joes well, I. Mean the last time I said it was like smartandfinal meets the dollar store and some people got upset about that comparison. But like I love the dollar store and by the way, people need to know that the food that you get at the dollar store is not older expired in some cases it's a lot of big brands that are specifically making foods for the dollar store. So I don't know that but I a big fan of the dollar store. So I take that as a compliment if somebody would say that anyway, that's just me. But today we are going through a whole bunch of products I went to all the last week. I purchased don't know like nine hundred item. So. A lot of the stuff that I bought were holding off in a few more weeks. We'll do it all the hall I'm GonNa. Go back to all the fill it out. But I, I mean I literally got like fifteen things and we're going to try one, seven, eight, eight of them today. It's going to be tough for me to not eat that one thing that's in the bag that we're gonNA wait on because it just I can I look at it every day and I wanna eat it I'm guessing it's peanut butter flavored Jamie please hide this from him. It'd be having other PB item today. It's a little bit of a weird. I am I'm actually really excited with that one. So I'm excited about everything today zero. All right.

The new flavor is pumpkin spice. So it's a hard seltzer pumpkin spice flavors. It looks like right now it's only being sold at Kroger Stores and Kentucky Tennessee and Ohio. But I'm sure we'll go nationwide wouldn't go nationwide. By, the way I don't know if you know this but the vive or. Whatever it's called their heart seltzer drinks or one hundred calories and two grams of carbs. Yeah. That's not bad except the only bad part of that is hard. Seltzer Gross. That's my. I don't I am not a fan and the the idea of like a pumpkin spice flavor that sounds terrible to me. Might be harsh right now no I feel like the only excuse for a pumpkin spice flavored cocktail as if it's like a frozen sweet. Type of like creating. Yes. Creamy. So the article that I that I read this from, they got a taste of it and they said it's amazing like it's and they thought the same thing like it would be terrible and they loved it so.

There was a major surprise in Mattel's last quarter action figures sales plummeted, but doll sales surge the Jurassic Park. megalosaurus wreck sales fell by twelve percent. The Beach Party Barbie sales surged by thirty five percent, and there is a fascinating correlation here. Apparently, kids don't care about action figures a less. There's a huge summer movie.

For our first story, that two thousand twenty summer blockbuster is officially dead, but some b-list movies will go direct to live. I know you got that. Everyone's got that draft email open with like a list of movies that they're ready to send to themselves. At some point, they keep you keep adding to actually use my notes tab on my computer. There's nothing low on that list nick. I've watched everything. There is to watch and blockbuster. Movies are right now going the way of like the Tokyo. Tokyo twenty twenty, Olympics and dating delayed until twenty, two, twenty, one, all three of them now instead of delaying another month or like several months Disney is officially delaying. Milan indefinitely. A Disney spokesperson said nothing is set in stone anymore, so we're not even GonNa try to estimate when Milan will come out until we have more confident, they're like. Please stop asking US questions actually. There yet you can look out the window and see where we're there on top of all this last week. A whole bunch of other movies just got delayed. Star Wars, a wes Anderson Flick tenant the latest Christopher Nolan Heart Pounder. They're all delayed every Christopher Nolan trailers just like Bob up. And Avatar, too, which we've been waiting ten years for by the way got delayed another year. It was supposed to come in December now. It's coming next December and fun fact and I noticed they decided to push back avatars, three four and five by another twelve months for each of those. That's right. They're already planning three four and five for twenty, twenty, four, twenty, twenty, six and twenty, twenty-eight, a comfortable two years of social distance. Author movies are planned for this summer fall and winter, and they're like TB. Right Steven Spielberg's west side, story, remake and black widow by marvel, no word on whether those will actually happen. Earth does get delayed now. The interesting thing here is that while Disney won't put anything in stone to other things are set in stone. Yes, apple, netflix's don't care about movie theaters. One bit nope. Tom Hanks his. His new movie Greyhound came out on Apple TV plus and became the company's first hit naturally about World War Two because Tom Hanks yeah. Tom Hanks does want play any role that's after nineteen, fifty six and get this thirty percent of people who watched Greyhound during the premiere weekend or new subscribers to apple TV plus according to PF W tm. Apple now realizes that big names get big sign. Sign Up. The other thing that is set in stone is that Hollywood is in rough financial shape, because no shows and movies have been produced since March some serious economic impact. We're feeling. You know you got feel for the writers. The grips the doubles the camera. People who aren't working right now, so Jack. What's the takeaway for our buddies in the movie industry for now though movie theaters role in. In Society is still secure snags in April trolls to made more money with the twenty dollar streaming rental, then trolls one did in movie, theaters and Nick. That made AMC theaters furious furious so much so that they banned all of universal pictures movies from its theaters forever, but interestingly it seems like movie. Studios aren't following the old troll's playbook now. We're not saying that AMC theatres, Regal and cinemark. They're in the clear. They won't go bankrupt for not saying no. Their stocks are teetering, because their revenues have been literally zero dollars, since March we are saying that movie studios are staying faithful to movie theaters, and not going direct to live there, waiting ready to have butts and seats, and not cut them out like trolls it which Kinda stinks 'cause I'm dying for movies right now.

"Find an amazing flavor of one that we just didn't get to so seltzer on. For. Sure for sure and Randy. Can I talk to you a minute before we revealed this final list for people about the fistfight, because some of these were harder to find than others. Yeah I had to go to a couple of different places to find these these are made by breweries, and their websites list a beer finder, which doesn't necessarily indicate that the store that sells their beer also carries their citre seltzer. Some of these breweries might be kind of slightly embarrassed that they're making this, and it's just purely cynical money ploy, but that's my two cents. Thank you spend us in man who hates Art Seltzer. Because we had to advocate joy, he'll here folks I did have a question about why are we not doing? Some other hard beverages. I wanted to limit this just the Seltzer, so we didn't do hard lemonades. We didn't do hard ciders and we didn't do hard tease. Yeah, and I think for a for the two thousand twenty fistfight. I like what we've done. I think I'm totally open to doing the ciders doing the teas, and if people WANNA get in touch with their recommendations. You can of course do that at daily Detroit at gmail.com. Now that we're here. It is fistfight twenty twenty, the final recommendations, the final countdown Fletcher. Sharp has got them lined up for the ultimate picture that we're going to share after we post this podcast, but it is an impressive list. Michigan brands have done well. It is really interesting to me that you've got half. The brands that are a group of folks have rated higher and half lower, so we're going to go from bottom to top at the bottom. It's beaches from shorts next up. Is the Middle Coast Hard Seltzer from traverse city? City then. We have the Griffin Claw from Birmingham of course then we have the cleared coast, and the clear coast is from the folks at Paren- then we have our baseline that everybody knows the white claw which turned out to be right in the middle next up the lake. Life takes the fourth spot, and that Lake Life is a new Holland offering number.

"Coast and middle. Coast wow okay, forget three. Are you willing to? Are you willing to force this or do you WanNa? Put even farther down, you know honestly I think it's. I know I'm going to lose on this but I. Put it past Middle Coast. Even I strongly disagree. I'm not going to try to I. Mean we're just looking at the vote here? I know I understand that my vote. Acceptable an acceptable decision to you. Where if the group says this? You will be okay with it. I'm fine with that I understand I'm in the minority here. None of them really worked for me. I'm okay with it going wherever it needs to go because of the group. Okay, our group decision is between clear coast and middle coast correct. Yes, are that's where we're putting it oof below white claw. We now have just for reference and Fletcher Sharp Our sports and soccer correspondent is got. Got This together here for us, but right now. I hate to say this. We have four Michigan Brands, sitting sub white claw and three above it the three above it are odd side, breakwater and Lake Life, the four below are clear coast griffin claw middle coast and beaches all right, so this one is the only Detroit detroit-based Seltzer and some of us have actually lived just around the corner from their taproom in Grosse Pointe. They also have a place on the Detroit Riverfront atwater. And if I do sound a little bit different because I. I have a mask on when I'm close to folks. Randy set us up so like you said. This is a water from Detroit. We are trying to cherry flavor to start. This is ninety nine calories ninety nine, not one hundred one calorie last nine calories. Five grams of carbohydrates, though one of which is sugar. The fruit forward flavor of the water, but it also very metallic behind it. Strong fruit flavor, but strong, chemically metallic flavor as well. So I would agree the area I appreciate it. They didn't try and go black Cherry Straight Cherry, which I could taste the difference. I would compare this and this is again. Depending on how you see this, this is the best kind of white cloth. Ask tight yet has a similar flavoring have a little bit of the Labor, but it also has the light flavor, but the clean authentic flavor that I liked from the waclaw at first I didn't necessarily lake the Cherry. It did kind of grow on me after drinking a little bit, but I've never really understood that whole. It's an acquired taste like if you have to require something. Is that good? I don't know, but I will say that. It got better as a drink it, but maybe it's also because I've tried all these different saucers, so I'm going to say like I'm not always the big mango guy because he got mango, and then we've got the cherry. Better than white cloth that's for sure is also got a crush ability to it which I really enjoy, so. I definitely think it belongs in the top half I'M GONNA. Call this as our number three choice and just going to pick number three below the breakwater, but above the lake life concur concur. Sham I could see I do actually like the mango a little bit better than the Cherry, so between the breakwater and Lake Life, which is a solid showing..

"Actually. Shining. Little, too, if you were. Hurt. You hate it. Fair. I didn't like I didn't hate it. Here, but we just didn't hate this so below above middle coast correct next up is griffin clause hard Seltzer Griffin claw is in Birmingham. Michigan. This can is a sixteen ounce. Can everything else we tried? So far is a twelve months cancel. These numbers are a little skewed This is one hundred forty calories for the sixteen ounce can. It is five grams of carbohydrate, two of which are sugar. It is five percent Ab, and as the Kansas it is gluten free homey so. We are in what I would consider our local offerings stretch of this we've got you know. Metro Detroit from here on out Griffin Claw based in Birmingham looking at the color of it. It's a little off key, not completely clear, but it's not necessarily like a red or cherry caller, either got a little bit off color I like the carbonation. I do like the flavor. It's nice. It's a good black cherry offering definitely better than most that I've had the cherry flavors prominent? I like it. It's definitely a little bit higher on the carbonation as well so this one might not be as easy drinker as some of the lighter carbonation beverages. We've tried I wonder if that has any correlation to the fact that it comes from a brewery at making difference, but it's more of a higher carbonation kind of like this one, but I also feel like it tastes a little like medicine. So I don't know not. That's a fair point. The Cherry flavor is a little medicinal taste like my son's Cherry Medicine, and I can get done with that. That's hard though right. Sherri's always hard flavor in general because you're always walking that line. Done well by some of our other. Players in this game. Yes, I'm hoping. The next flavor wows me a little bit more. This is why we're trying different flavors as we go even kind of sped through them for the purposes of audio, because the raspberry is the strongest out of these three. So, what is our determination? This is a tough one because I don't hate it, but I don't love it. How do you feel we're starting to get real critical here so it's tough to get a lot of Canada bench randy's whole idea was. We're going to go out state and then in state to Orlando Daily, Detroit and it actually makes it a little bit tougher on those local rants again, though looking at my north star of the White Claw. I believe that it is below white claw. Probably below clear coast, but not below milk, but not below Miller coast. You know what Devon Devon Riley man about town. I will second your nomination for that position. This is because some of the flavors are good, and some of the flavors are terrible. The terrible flavor laid the Georgia Peach. Just kind of brings the whole Griffin claw wind down I believe I. Think I'm GonNa. Go below white coast and I think. Yeah I think I'm. Who I did like the Cherry and the raspberries. Okay, the pizzas terrible though so I think I am going to go between Clare..

"The lowest calorie one we've had by a significant margin, and it's only four percent by volume ABC. gluten-free, okay, so we're back in the realm of clear Seltzer is here. WHO's going I? I'm getting some tastes now so. It's very light. The the flavors are light so again. This is my preference. I like a little bit later of right. I want something too sweet too powerful, so this nice and light I get the cranberry. We'll see other people say, but I don't get the lime as much. I definitely do get the cranberry. The carbonation seems a little low I. Don't know if we've reported in a cup, but it's got low carbonation super easy drinking light. It's gotTa Lower AB so quick aside. It's important to look at the Seltzer. ABC's because most will be five percent, but if you think about it, one percenting editor, so a four percent is considerably lower of an ABC to have for Seltzer. If you had six you, you'd have something really strong. Think about six percent. Beer market is a strong beer so I thinking about that five percent and anything below that I think you're going to have a little bit later taste. I mean this is pretty good. In my opinion, the flavor was very white, and the carbonation was very light, which seems odd because there were quite a few bubbles when I poured it. Okay, so having a little bit of this and I'm looking forward to try another flavor. I feel like this up to the promise of white clock could be in that. It's neutral and not sweet without tasting flagpole, and so that's what I like about. It is that it lives up to that promise without the metallic taste. The grand vote people so odd side better lasts. Less breakwater better less less less white claw, better better better better all right, so it stops it why claw goes into the number three spot people who's going to do the honors of putting the lake lives into the wall of order in the fistfight twenty twenty. We are now trying clear coast hospital shelter made by Perrin. WHO's based in comstock park another traditionally beer brewer. In fact, they were acquired few years back by I. Think Colorado Bass. Brewery called Oscar Blues. If my memory serves. So clear coast has one gram of sugar. Three grams of carbohydrates total..

"You have not one not two, but three different hard seltzer flavors from odd side brewing company, which is in grave right over on the west side of the state. I'm familiar with them because they make some pretty good beer I have to say I again. Don't like hard seltzer, but tell us about the flavors you got. What are you going with I? So we got three flavors from this. We Got Pina. Colada. We have blackberry and we are currently tasting pink lemonade. This is one hundred ten calories zero carbs so zero sugar in also gluten-free. were tasting the pink lemonade rate now, so let's give it a go to be clear. Are All hard sensors gluten free? I believe one of them labelled reduced gluten and Gluten Free So. So had a chance now to taste this, and I'm very impressed. First of all as Randy mentioned, there's zero zero sugar zero carbs. I mean that's nice. It's all things considered if it's even healthier quotation marks, what I'm doing, then even better, but this is a pink lemonade flavor which I would imagine. I was anticipating being very sweet which I don't like, but this is about the latest. You could do a pink lemonade and keep it. You know palatable so I'm impressed with the offering here from outside. I really like this one. I like the pink lemonade I think, it tastes lemony, but not too many not too sweet, no metallic taste, so it's a plus for me. This tastes just like pink lemonade with a kick. You get the lemon tartness. You get the Berry that provides the PINKUS and I don't really tasty metallic flavors at all. This is just like a light refreshing. PHYSI- pink lemonade I love it and I think. We're only doing an in depth of each one, but we're going to try cup other flavors before we do our final ranking, but I'm going to give this a shot right now. Yes No. I'm a fan as somebody who isn't necessarily always down like I've had white cloth had these kind of seltzer things before. I would drink this on a regular basis. I would drink this I mean not necessarily the Pena Cada, but the other ones I really like and I like the fact that like the breadth of flavors, oxide is the brand with the most flavors they offer eighteen varieties of heart shelters. So you know, pick your favorite flavor and they probably have it. All right, so it's time to do the vote because I feel like this is something that we need to continue our rankings on here all right? Let's go around. What am I seeing here? Is this just an easy voice? Vote thumbs up. THUMBS UP! THUMBS UP! Disobey the best one. I've tried so far so top of the bench. Top of the bench goes next on the docket. Is Beaches hard? Seltzer made by shorts. Bring Company in Belair so I initially noticing on kind of the stats portion of it. This has ninety five calories four percent, AB so lower, ABC a little bit lower calories, but it looks like four carbs as well which is double or four times that of some of the other..

"It's got about zero on the flagpole scale. So that's good. It kind of gives me like a fram. Wa- feel. This is solid. I am not a heavy like crushing drinker so I definitely enjoy this, but yeah. I picked up the. The sweetness other people do, but I think key for me is that it does not have the flagpole flavor. I think the sweetness masks that flagpole flavor, so it's kind of a giver takes I don't really like the sweetness but I. See what you're saying is. There's also no metallic flavor so I, guess it's a give and take there just so people know Savannah's in the corner judging us, and so it's Fletcher. We judge the Seltzer. They judge us so so we're letting these folks on the bench of decision here. Randy's in charge of it white clause in the middle. All right so I up is the breakwater better or less than white claw? Thumbs up thumbs. Down! Better down. ooh, we have three ups better than White Claw. and down, so we're putting it above. The waclaw Devon has been overridden. More and I didn't hate it, but I just go into important. Note that you didn't hate it. Though you know I, didn't it? It was very good it just like I said I'd have one or two but I don't want to sound too egregious here, but I don't drink white clause for one or two. You drink them for six plus. All right, our next entrant is a tart, sweet cherry flavor. Hard Seltzer from Middle Coast Brewing company that's in traverse city. What do you guys think this one is interesting? It's a hundred and nine calories to carbohydrates, which are both sugar, and this is also five percent v V. This was Super Physi- and also pink and. I don't think it tastes like cherries concur with Randy on his first points, the fitness the carbonation was noticeably higher than the others which I don't like because I also again. Come back to feeling like this is going to get me full a lot faster and we're burps. Going on I don't know how I feel about this one and the the cherry flavor just isn't there. I don't know what this tastes like, but I am not getting Cherry Nailed It just not. You know what it is. It tastes a lot like beer. It's got more of a beer consistency than a seltzer consistency. If the carbonation is out of a beer, and that's not what I'm looking for. In a seltzer per. Se, you have peaked. My interests barely hear. Jumping in for the TAG team. Hey, anything for science, so we also cracked open the cranberry grapefruit. This one is zero sugars so zero carbohydrates, and only one hundred calories, but it is also five percent ab the aroma in the plastic cup is kind of brutal I gotTA. Tell you. It definitely smells like cranberry grapefruit. Though so let's do our vote here, is it? Is it better or worse in the breakwater I? Think we're it was. This is worse, okay now, White Claw! Where does it sit in the Pantheon to go below the white claw. Yeah! This is worse Than Oo ended the bench for the Middle Coast sorry guys. Randy. It must be said that you have gone above and beyond. The motivation you showed you know putting this project together was truly inspiring..

Are Toxins Hiding in My Personal Care Products
"Melissa, thank you so much for being with us today. Hi, thank you for having me I'm so excited to be here. Loved Otehr I've been using the dough tear products for over seven years now, and it's very been very impactful family. That is incredible eleven years, so you've been around almost since the beginning. Yeah Yeah. I'm the one year anniversary. That's amazing so with this topic of detoxifying your personal care, one of the biggest questions that I think a lot of people have is what kinds of ingredients should I watch out for and my personal care products. That's a really great question and a really hard one two, and because the list is so long so as I think about that I think about what are some of the big things that when I pick up a product of the store and I look at the ingredients label what I, really not going to touch with a ten foot pole in those would be things that contain any form of parabens. Any fragrances because those synthetic fragrances are so hard on the body Rhode. Walking Down The candle I'll some people. Might, get headaches from it in some people don't I when I was younger, I didn't I didn't understand why people would get headache I thought that something was wrong with them and what I came to realize later was something was wrong with me. But it was because I had such a tactic lifestyle that my senses. My sensory like my receptors were not picking up on the I should be having a reaction to those kind of things so now that cleansed my roddy now I'm like. Oh, now see what they're saying. So I do try to stay away from synthetic fragrances in particular. some other things, too. That I look out for like the sulfates and invalidates I mean the list is so long, but and that's why the list is so long is because so many of these products or ingredients chemicals. Have different aliases that they go by, and so it's just really hard in know like. You don't even know that that's what you're putting on your skin and in your makeup. Anything that's going on. Your face is going in your mouth. Let's be honest. Is GonNa? Try there, so you are gonNA. Adjust it things that go on your hands. You touch your food. You touch your face so. We. Really don't realize the depth of how much these chemicals are actually impacting our body will, that is very helpful, I think. Like, you said those labels can be very confusing, but those are really helpful things specifically to watch out for when you're picking out those products for your home. Yet and especially for yourself your family. Your pets were all impacted by those things. Absolutely, so my next question for you is I think you touched on this a little bit in your last answer? Why is it that products are able to affect my toxic load? Yeah. That's that is a great question because. Like I said it's going to impact your liver. So things that are going into your body you're liver is part of your filtration systems of we think about the Seltzer on your furnace filter or your car filter or your water filter? They need to be cleaned out after a while because they can only bear so much load before they really functioning well, and so that's the thing that are liver in kidneys in our lungs are doing for our body. Body is they're trying to filter some of that out? But at some point it gets to be too much, and that's when we really start to see the our. Our lifestyle doesn't feel as good as it used to. Like we don't feel like our old selves, and that's really that toxic load is just building up so much on our body that we need a way to get get that out, but we also need to stop bringing so much in. Taxes. Absolutely and you mentioned before that there is just this huge list of. Ingredients that could contribute to our toxic load. which kind of makes some people start to feel overwhelmed about what might be in their house? What do you recommend if I start feeling overwhelmed by trying to clean out my personal care products? Okay that's yeah that that is an overwhelming feeling. Because the average person takes in about five hundred fifteen different chemicals just through their personal care products Lale I know I was thinking about this like. If. You think of every ingredient every chemical being like a sheet of paper you might not feel it in your hand and so light, but if you look at one personal care product that might have twenty six different chemicals in it. You'RE GONNA start to feel that, but think about just kind of think about your day. You Start Your Day off in your bed. You've slept in your bed for about maybe eight or nine hours in whatever laundry detergent maybe fabric softener that you used not only is your skin touching your face. You're smelling it long, so your receptors are taking it in. Then you get up and you take a shower and you think about what? What soap you're using the and conditioner the face wash the base scrub the tone. Are there so many steps to our routine that we just take for granted that we don't even realize how many things were introducing to our bodies? Then go brush Rt.. And then and then and that's. I mean it just as so many that each one of those is carrying a load of you know. Let's say that sheet of paper again. In each one of those has a load of maybe ten twenty six different sheets of paper, and you just loaded all those on now. You're really gonNA feel like a few rings of paper. Feeling in then you're going into the foods that you eat in the air that you breathe at when you really start like it all that it can start to feel like the world is against. Live, it's it's a remarkable thing that are the human body can even endure that much.
Florida Governor Deploys National Guard To Force Residents Back Into Malls, Movie Theaters
"Lord is taking new measures to protect the state from the threat of Corona virus here, how Governor Ron Santa's plans to deploy national. Guard troops to force residents back into the states, malls, movie theater, and later amid growing budget cuts the United States Postal Service is looking to save some money by dumping all the mail in one big pile for everyone to go. We've got the latest on where that big pile of mail is. So you can start rummaging for your envelopes from the onion and onion public radio I'm leslie price and this is the topical. My bosses I'm not allowed to drink anymore seltzer while I'm recording because it makes too much, but I think he's full of Shit. Stay with us. Excuse me. As Corona virus cases continue to grow throughout the US. One state has decided to take drastic measures to overcome the pandemic earlier this week. Florida Governor Rhonda Santa's used his executive power to deploy the State's National Guard to force residents back into malls, movie theaters, and other businesses joining us now with more details as OPR's burke. Clint Remmy, what led to this decision by the Governor Well Leslie Florida officials say they're taking these measures. After millions of residents continued to avoid open restaurants and bars, and blatantly ignored government guidelines to get back out there and save the economy. I spoke to Jeff Pemberton A. A representative from Governor to Santa's his office. Who had this to say? No one wanted it to come to this, but the state's residents left us. No choice so the governor has signed an emergency measure that sense troops to our hardest hit areas to make sure people. There are getting out of their house and staying in stores until they buy something. HM, rummy! Aren't these actions a little extreme? They are in Pemberton acknowledged that this will unfortunately caused a huge blow to the state's population, but he insists that practicing social consumerism is the state's only option to stop this plague of economic downturn. Here's. Here's Jeff Pemberton again simply put irresponsible people are not taking the government advisory seriously by refusing to take the family to the cheesecake factory for dinner and pick up a few things at and barrel on the way home. We're putting all kinds of corporations endanger. We are at a breaking point where these rules must be enforced. The new measure also makes it illegal for the state's twenty one million residents to congregate in restaurants and food courts with fewer than ten people in the National Guard is authorized to question any individual who doesn't look like they've had a haircut in a while or whose roots? Roots are showing to make sure they've made an appointment at a local salon or barbershop. If they haven't those who are looking shaggy, are subject to a two hundred dollar fine, and will be taken to the nearest super cats well, even if they're trying to grow it out, that's right sounds so draconian. However Floridians responding to these new regulations for some residents, the governor's executive order is already taking a toll. Look. I realized that keeping the economy going is more important than everyone's health, but there has to be a balance I don't need any more scented body lotion from bath and body works. Eight games in a row. I don't know how much more my arm can take. They told me they shoot me with beanbag guns if I didn't pay to reserve the lane for the whole. Mural customized. You can't go to the hair to see honored. As the kind of Art God, I would that would make you laugh and cry, and his perfect for the whole family. Now if you do not buy your ticket to the four forty five screen, and then slowly make way. What are the confessions Dan to a large popcorn, drinks and candy of choice, we'll use force while some people could be incredibly selfish. Yes, and unfortunately there are some large groups of protesters trying to defy the orders. We have some audio of the National Guard, moving in and a crowd of people who were trying to leave a mall in Orlando without the required number of full shopping bags. So me. Shop Man. We could do this the easy way or the hard way, but you're going to go into that nail salon and you're going to Pat Yourself. The National Guard were finally able to control the crowd by using tear-gas to corner them a Sunglass Hut until they all bought ray bans. It's sad that this is what it takes to get some people to do. What's right for? For the economy, but remmy are officials worried that this could lead to an increase in corona virus cases. They're taking that into account, but Pemberton noted that those who will suffer the most will be the poor and people in nursing homes, and they don't have that much money to spend anyway well, that's not so bad. Then thank you ramming. That's OPR's Remmy Berkeley back in a

He kept his job for a whole year just to see me. Oh my God okay I just tell you something. I can't wait. This happened Wednesday night. I've been keep it from you because I wanted to share with you on the podcast Sunday. I know I'm sorry okay. I shaved my Bush Really Beige. Your own Bush. I shaved it and I regret it. Okay here's what happened. I was like I gotta take care of this like I wasn't GonNa wax it and I do appreciate you guys like me and encouraging me and be like you can do a girl. Just don't I already feel bad about it enough? I feel bad about myself enough. I know I can do it. I don't WANNA to pull hair out of my pussy for two hours. I just don't want to. I'm not going to do it but here's what I did. I was like you know what I'm going to go old school. I used I shaved seven years ago. I'll do it again key forgotten why. Stop Shaving in the first place. Why did you stop because I found waxing and sugary and I was like it so much better and the whole thing? Is that when you shave when you go back to sugar waxing? It hurts more so whether they use that as a marketing tech tactic. I think it is true but anyway I hate shaving for numerous reasons like razor. Burn and groans. Just general stubble hate it so but I was like I'm going to do it. That's my Bush is out of control. I trimmed it. I was a some okay then. I bought an electric women's like shaver on Amazon. Panasonic like L. Held like what you'd buzz. Someone's head with you. Got like the fancy like Bridgestone shaver electric shaver vagina and that took care like the heavy. The heavy blake the heavy part of it. And then I finished it off with a razor just like billy razor shot out and when I was done with it it took so long when I was done with it. I didn't have shaving cream here so I use living proof conditioner. Whatever don't so I was done with it. It was perfect. It was so smooth it was like I just got waxed or sugared and I was like. Oh my gosh this is it I did it. I felt like a new woman. I got the whole thing totally. Looks like I just came from the sugar in Salon for twenty four hours and then the stubble started grow in Itchy. I Hate Myself. I hate that I did it. I'm like having so many regrets. I just hate fucking shaving. I it's really. We're very profoundly different like experiences. I shaved once a week in the shower. It's like it takes two seconds and I never think about it again meaning to ask for a really long time. Like why do you only wax like what happens if you shave and it's being issues? I literally. I'm not familiar with this. I I guess I could just shave it every day but like it's it's I'm just like I'm I hate this. I hate this so much like after I came out of the shower I was like. Oh my God I'm I took back my Bush like I'm shaving from here on out. This is great. This is GonNa be so great. I never have to worry about making appointments again and then I mean yeah I could shave it every single day but I just I hate it. I hate the stubble. I hate that I wanted to go in there daily and I'm not I'm not you know not really Harry person now like owned ground. I don't have like really course dark hair but I think my hair grows fast. I think on my head I it. My hair grows fast like on my legs like I just my Bush and it's just like I'm itchy and uncomfortable down there and I regret everything. It does grow fast. It is the quickest growing hair on my body grows back faster the my armpit hair. It's the most sense. Can you can't shave every day. You can't shave image erection of the hair every day because it's so painful. I shave it. Maybe once a week so I what I'm thinking now is I'm going to let it grow a little bit and then I might try to do an atom wax or an Adam sugar or see if see if a salon opens. Because I'm not shaving anymore and I'm never going back to that giant Bush so something's got to give and maybe it is me sit for two hours with somewhere. You're going to be one of those girls. You're going crossover. You'd be one of those savage asks. I will tell you two of our friends. Who are the softest? Nicest girls just. I've ever met urged out here like waxing the policies and I I never would have picked out of any. You say it Meryl Meryl's I just like the softest person she's so sweet. I can't imagine her raping the wax out of her pussy but air like the soft. We don't say that as an insult. Clearly she doesn't. I mean when I say soft I mean kind but she does have that like bad bitch side tour. She loves rap music. Swinton Ivy League school. She's kind of like a bad bitch. She's so she low key came home work and waxed row. Pussy. I can't believe she did it. Actually multiple girls. Also my friend. John's girlfriend told me that he the she has been doing it ourselves. And she also soft just really kind like a really nice person and she was like he's been my take a mirror and rip it off and I was like what how she weighs. Twelve pounds okay you want. She's so skinny..
"hard seltzer" Discussed on The Skinny Confidential Him And Her Podcast
"It's five percent alcohol. It's no sugar. It's ninety some odd calories. It's gluten free drinks six of them. It almost sounds too good to be true. Well why I became interested in is because when I talked to you I was pregnant and I had gained a lot away like the doctor tells you to gain like twenty five pounds. That was not happening for me and I was like okay. I obviously WANNA cocktail after. I have the baby right like shaking so when I was introduced to this I saw. There's low sugar like how much sugar is in at zero zero. Okay no calories. Barely ninety nine I can deal with I can and it's five percent alcohol. It is and how many carbs there's like no carbs none. Yeah there's no carbs and then it's it's organic and it's and we brew it with Alkaline Water. It's it's almost too good to be true and it's from so. I think a lot of the other brands to is it. I was very specific that I I drink a lot of seltzer water. I love La La love bubbly. Pepsi'S BRAND. I wanted an alcoholic version of that. Yeah I didn't want after taste and a lot of the other heart shelters that I was drinking. How'd that and I enjoy the? I enjoy drinking whitelaw. If it's at a party I'll still drink. I don't I'm I'm good. I wanted something. That was Alachua. No aftertaste and we got that from you. Know creating the alcohol from fermenting the sugar. So basically once the you know when you ferment. Sugar and then it turns into alcohol. It eats the sugar. And then there you are with your five percent but there's nothing else in it. It's organic flavoring and carbonated water. And that's it dangerous music. I drank all last week. And I've lost eight pounds since last week. And that's because I had birthweight guys so don't that sounds like three cucumbers innate no I. I've been intermittent fasting. I've been drinking ashland if I want to have a drink. That's right I've been walking and doing pilates volve a little bit of body guide and I mean I think it's slow but it's happening and I think that if I didn't have an alcohol that would like some like like highly such high sugar wine that you'd be. I would be drinking wine or champagne cocktail. It wouldn't be doing my ass any favorites right and so I think with this like I can sort of have my cake and eat it too. You know what I mean I do and I think that's why people have been so excited about everyone that I haven't had a brand yet while Harlan. The beer is phenomenal. It really is and Ryan and before we haven't been able to come into the brewery they are brewers are two of the best going but this everyone that drinks it goes this my favorite one. I mean it's crazy like everyone does say that. So if you have a brand you know where the same price as white cloth truly so wore on the shelf. You're going this looks great. It's it's priced the exact same. It's organic has all these health benefits. Y'All give it a try. Then we only need to get them to try at once so if Lawrence says I love this and so on. Who's listening like Janine goes will if Lauren likes it then? I'M GONNA try and they try and go whoa. This actually does taste an innocent. Our process on like what I would say like a diligence standpoint of investing in doing in doing a deal and partner was next to nothing. And it's I'll tell you why. Normally Gordon are very selective of who we partner. There's plot from with just just because like you know we're like you were selected. Were careful with partner with but there's like okay. Amazing category MAZING founder. The taste really good. We're GONNA drink like we drink it all the time like this is a no brainer to go into something like this because this is something that we're confident sharing with. Everybody and I'm confident that people will like. It's there's not one person who I'd say like. Hey if you're an alcohol drinker and you'd like to do this and you have these types of beverages like there's not one person I think would be like. Oh I don't like that category who the fuck doesn't want to drink alcohol and not have to worry about their waistline and then like for me when I'm like shopping and I'm a consumer. I'm thinking you know I see this. You know On the shelf and I'm thinking okay I can get this and not only. Can I get this? It's kind of growing in? Its own way but then I also have my husband drinking because it's also could not so. I can't be sitting there slamming a bottle of Bourbon. Be Able to change. The Muslim is straight man.

A Ward of the Probate Court
"Welcome back my friends to the big book podcast. My name is Howard and I'm an alcoholic sober since nineteen eighty eight one day at a time in this episode the Thirteenth Story from the personal stories section of the first edition of alcoholics anonymous published in nineteen thirty nine. It's entitled Award of the Probate Court and was printed only in the first edition of the big book. This relatively short story provides a glimpse of the formative years obey when old timers were those with two or three years sober but whose perseverance and dedication made possible a solid foundation for the entire a movement and now the original story award of the probate court at about the time. My graduation from high school a State University was established in our city on the call for an office assistant. I was recommended by my superintendent and got the position. I was rather his choice in pride but a few years later I met him in a nearby city and panhandle him for two bucks for drinks. I grew with the institution and advanced in position. I took a year off for ten minutes at an Engineering College at College. I refrain from any hilarious celebrating. Drinking War was declared. I was away from home on business at the state capital where my mother couldn't raise objections and I enlisted overseas. I was on five fronts from Alsace. Up to the North Sea upon relief from the lines back in the rest area being rouge and Cognac helped in the letdown from trying circumstances. I was introduced to the exhilaration of intoxication. The old spirit. What the Hell Heine may have you tagged. Didn't help towards any moderation in drinking then. We had many casualties but one of the real catastrophes was the lost of a POW. A lieutenant who died from the. Dt's over there after it was all over. This didn't slow me up and back in the states I had a big fling before returning home. My plans were to cover up with my mother and the girl I was to marry that I had become addicted to alcohol but exposed the fact on the day. Our engagement was announced on the way I met a training camp. Buddy got drunk and miss the party booze had got over. Its first real blow on me. I saw her briefly that night but didn't have the guts to face. Her people the Romance was over to forget I engaged in super active life and social fraternal and civic promotion of my community. This all outside my position. In the president's Office of the State University I became a leader. The big flash in the PAN are organized and was first commander of the American Legion Post. Raised funds and built a fine memorial. Clubhouse was secretary a belks. Eagles Chamber of Commerce City Club and active as an operator officer in political circles. I was always a good fellow and control my drinking indulging only in sprees and private clubs or away from home I was deposed from the executive position at the college by political change in the governorship of the state I knew the sales manager of Securities Division of a large utility corporation in Wall Street and started to sell securities the issues and the market were good and I had a fine opportunity. I was away from home and I began to drink heavily to get away from my drinking associates. I managed to be transferred to another city. But this didn't help booze had me. My sales and commissions diminished. I remained almost in a continuous stupor on my drawing account until I was released. I braced up got sober and made a good connection with the steamship agency. A concern promoting European travel and study at most all important universities in Europe. Those were the bathtub gin days and for drinking in about my office. I held out in this position for only a year. I was now engaged to be married. And fortunately I got another position as a salesman for a large corporation I worked hard was successful and my drinking became. I was married and my wife soon learned that I was no social drinker. I tried hard to control it but could not. There were many separations and she would return home. I would make pledges in a sincere effort and then my top would blow off again. I began here to take sanitarium treatments to satisfy my wife and my folks I had a great capacity for drink and work with the help of Turkish baths BROMO SELTZER ASPIRIN. I to the job. I became top notch or in the entire salesforce of the country. I was assigned to more special territory and finally into the market of keenest competition. I was top rate and salary one bonus awards and was bringing in the volume but there was always the drawback. My excessive drinking made at times I was called in once twice and warned. Finally I wasn't to be tolerated any longer. Although I was doing a good job I had lasted five and a half years. I lost my wife along with my job and find income. This was a terrible jolt I tried for a hookup but I had a black eye marring a good record. I became discouraged and depressed. I saw relief with booze. There began the four black years of my life. I had returned home to the community where I had been so prominent these were dry days still and I hung out at the clubs with bars. I got so I would last on a job but a few days just until I could get an advance for drinks. I began to get entangled with the law arrested for driving while intoxicated and drunk and disorderly conduct my folks heard of the cure at the state hospital. I was picked up drunk and sent there by the probate court. I was administered. Parral to hide and came to in receiving ward among lunatics. I was transferred to another word of less violent cases and I found a little group of alcoholics and junkers dope addicts. I learned from them the seriousness of being award of the probate court. I felt then if I ever got released. The old devil alcohol would never get me in a jam like this again in times of great distress. Such as this I would pray to God for help. I was fortunate and was released after eleven days and nights brought up in the laughing academy bughouse. That was enough. I wanted no more of it. I took a job as a manager of a club and put myself to the old acid test. I was going to really assert my willpower. I even tended bar part of the time. But never imbibed a bit. This lasted about three months. I went to an annual convention of my overseas division and came to locked up in a cheap hotel room. New shoes suit coat hat and purse missing. I must have slipped badly then followed much drinking in trouble. After a few arrests for intoxication the law decided another sojourn to the State Hospital would tame me. They jumped the stay this time from eleven days to eleven weeks. It was getting tough for me. I came out in good physical condition and held the fear of getting probate again thinking the siege might be eleven months. I got another job. Stay Dry for about two months and off to the races again. I became terribly weak. Couldn't eat and try to get nourishment from booze and mostly only bootleg that one time. I just made it to a hospital and another time. A police patrol took me to the hospital. Instead of jail. I suffered badly from insomnia as many as three shots in the arm had no effect I would get in shape and back at it again. I was going to battle to finish. The time came when I was to be paid. My soldiers bonus I had the limit or maximum coming friends. Advise my folks to send me to a veteran's hospital before I got this money in my hands. I was pro baited again. Held in a county jail for two weeks and sent again to the asylum. This was my summer resort for three months. I was on the waiting list for the Veterans Hospital but I got into such wonderful physical condition from eating and working out of doors that I was released. I reached home full of resentment against my folks for their having my money tied up in a guardianship I went out and got saturated and landed in jail. I had been free from the asylum for about eight hours behind the bars again. So soon this was bad however I was freed again the next day and this was my last confinement with the
Where is AI Heading? Interview with Nick Thompson, Editor-in-Chief, Wired
"Hello and welcome to the AI today. Podcast I'm your host Kathleen Walsh and I'm your host Ronald Schmeltzer. Our guest today is Nick Thompson. Who is the editor in chief at? I nick thanks so much for joining us on AI. Today Oh thank you so much delighted to be here. Yeah welcome neck and thank you so much for joining us today. We'd like to start by having you introduce yourself to our listeners and tell them a little bit about your background and your current role at wired I Journalists and journalists since I stopped street musician. I'm in my early twenties and prior to wired I worked at the New Yorker around the digital side and then I came over and became the editor in chief of wired. I started the same week. Is DONALD TRUMP? So it's relatively easy to track them. How Long. I've had this job in about three years now. Two years in a month and my role is to assign stories at stories figure out the direction of wired on the HR office figure out our business model view with ethical questions involving sponsored content. And every now and then go on. Cool podcast talk about things. We care a lot about like artificial intelligence. Well great well thanks. We drill to heavier. Because I think you know part of the reason why we have you on our podcast. Is You have an interesting perspective. You obviously hearing from the industry and hearing from pundits and you're hearing of course from what end users are talking about but also a governments are doing have interesting perspective. That may be many others. Don't have on what's happening for artificial intelligence and so as you may see is impacting every industry. It's impacting all sorts of corners of our ecosystem. So how have you seen a evolving over the past few years and for your audience? How have you seen your audience of all in its understanding and interaction with artificial intelligence? It's interesting you know. The debate over a I has conversation. Area has changed and all kinds of wonderful ways since I started this job and started really digging into it. You know three years ago. Four years ago the public conversation over a I was much more about super intelligence and much. More bowed concerns about runaway TAC. Much more caught up in the hype over the last couple of years. We've narrowed and deepened understanding back to now. It's much more about okay. What former they I is going to be. The MOST IS GONNA BE MACHINE. Learning as far as we can see are going to go beyond machine. Learning let's talk about the ethical debates but let's not talk about them in the superficial ways. We really talked about them a year or two ago. Just talk about him and more complex nuanced ways much talk about where is actually being used successfully where it's not. I've talked about it's real limitations. Too I feel like part of my own. Understanding of the issue has deepened in profound ways. Over the last three years editing stories about hey right but I also think that the reader wired have become much more educated on the topic much more interested in it and much more involved than ever increasingly interesting debates about all things related to I. It's interesting that you say that because we've seen a lot of the use cases that we talk about and with our clients as well. We say you know this would be a great application. They're very mundane back office processes things like that and people are like. Oh yeah well. That's kind of a boring use case and we're like yes but it's an incredibly useful one and you should probably start with it and it's going to save a lot of money and time so it's interesting you know you've been seeing that as well where we've gone from this talk about artificial general intelligence is very you know super ristic science fiction view in some sense of Ai. To how can we use it now in every day? So we've talked about how. Ai Is impacting just about every industry including journalism as well. So how do you see? Changing journalism in the coming years and what ethical considerations should be discussed and put in place around this? Yeah I mean I I just want to completely agree with your statement or one of the companies. I read about a lot of facebook. And you know when I started people like Oh my God. Facebook IS USING AI. To create language that will displace humanity. And now hey is basically like a really useful tool for getting porn off facebook right. It's much simpler row tasks that are much better accomplished with assistance. Humans journalism question every profession is going to be changed in interesting ways. Biracial right because professional events systems using. I will be able to do things that we used to have. Humans do so when I think about journalism. What are the things that we do now? That machines can do better from a reporting process. I think that machines and it'll be very help and identifying patterns potentially defined stories so there will be a group of reporters class reporters a type of reporter in the future who will harness AI to analyze databases identify patterns find investigative stories. There will also be kinds of stories that we no longer need to write to the Washington. Post is already experimenting with having a systems writing basic pieces so Toronto Blue Jays beat the Baltimore. Orioles for to to happen. Because someone's home run and Joe got so they're kind of wrote stories that people like to read that you don't really need a human writing you can probably right about stock market and as time passes and as machines get better like those stories will increasing complexity. You won't be able to write three thousand word narratives profiles using an AI system. But you'll be able to write a certain kind class of story within the tasks that we have you right. It'll be changed a little bit. Copy editing an interesting profession. Where High End. Copy editing like trying to identify voice style that will stay with humans right to kind of copy. Editing Donna wired but there's a different level of copy editing that I think probably will be automated replaced by. There's fact checking that you smart a system could do so. There's certain tasks within the stack of tasks that make up the creation of an article. That will be done with I in a certain set of them. That won't be a lot of journalism in ball. Human to human contact human human reporting becoming friends with somebody eventually developing a relationship where they trust you to give you the information that makes an important story like a machine is not gonna be able to develop a trusted relationship with the source story but a machine will be able to do copy editing. The fact check legal review parts of that more efficiently than a human can so few ways. It's GonNa Change. They're probably about twenty five thousand others but that start that's interesting. You know one of the things we've noticed it. I don't think related specifically artificial intelligence but the whole idea of the long form article has really sort of. It's become a lot I mean. Maybe I'm just noticing it more become a lot. More prevalent icon. There's like bringing you into the emotion of the story and sort of like you know carrying rather than just talking about the facts of some story just today. I was reading this book about somebody who was lost in the Costa Rican rainforest and somebody wrote a book about it and and instead of just talking about that sort of brings you into the story and I found that to be really engaged. Something of course that you can't really do what they item wondering if one is sort of like a reaction to the other which is that. These sort of automated pieces are taking the place of sort of this more sorta wrote journalism and in the place now. Journalists are more storyteller switch bringing people into the narrative. I mean does something. I don't know if that's something that's intentional or I'm just noticing it more. I think that I think it is true that there are more of those stories and it probably you are seen more of them in your newsletters in the publications you read. I don't think it's a reaction to a I yet or it. Is You know. Five percent due to ask generated through. I think that is much more. A reaction to the decline of advertising supported journalism so one of the big wrecks or phenomenon dinner industries that the price of ads on websites and permissions like both prices. Going down in the Seltzer rate is going down. So it's much harder to generate revenue off of content. Right if you get if you publish a ton of stories and get a ton of readers. It's hard to
No, the Corona Virus Did Not Sink Sales of Corona Beer
"From wondering I'm David Brown and this business wars daily on this Tuesday march tenth. Wow It's been a long few weeks as anxiety's been mounting over this corona virus no surprise that the viruses hit many businesses especially those with global supply chains in companies that sell rely on travel. But there's one company hit hard because of branding. Yes you guessed it that would be corona the maker of beer and hard seltzer. It's sales slowed tremendously because many Americans. It seems are confused about the association between the beer and the virus. Oh Com on. They are not the last couple of weeks. Misleading story went viral. It implied that Americans are so dumb. That many of us believe the beer can cause the virus that message spread by a certain less than honest public relations firm seemed to indicate that sixteen percent of us are confused about the relationship between corona the beer and corona the disease. That's killing people. It also implied that Krona's beer sales had fallen because of the virus. The story was so convincing that many major news outlets picked it up including CNN. The New York Post and vice among others not surprisingly twitter went Gaga over this story. None of it's true. Let's talk for a minute about the difference between correlation and causation. Shall we correlation means? Two things are happening Ed once but may have little to do with each other causation. Means well okay you get it. This is key to what happened. So a firm called Five W. P. R. published a poll of more than seven hundred Americans. That poll asked questions about the corona virus and about corona the brand one of the findings. According to this firm. Thirty eight percent of those polled said they would not by corona beer under any circumstances now as a writer for the Atlantic noted the PR firm then went on to state without proof. The reason these respondents won't buy corona is because of the virus not so in fact many or even all of those thirty eight percent may not have been corona drinkers to begin with as was reported in the Atlantic. They might not by corona regardless. But that's not how the PR firm chose to sell it in fact that firm trumpeted the so-called finding saying who would want to go into a bar right now in order corona well in in fact corona sales have fallen. That's in part because sales of many beer brands are down in China at a time. When beer sales usually climb we're talking about the lunar brew year a New Year Abn Bev which distributes corona outside of the US forecast day ten percent decline in sales in China because people are staying home. That's according to the fact. Checking website slopes so that particular sales declined does appear to be a corona virus effect. Just not related to the name of corona beer. What got much less play as a statement from Constellation brands which distributes corona inside the US in America Constellation said. Sales grew five percent in the four weeks that ended February sixteenth. That's double the sales trend for the last year. Snoops reported constellation clearly felt it was necessary to correct the wild misconceptions in a press. Release the firm stated that its customers quoting here understand. There's no link between the virus in our business. Exactly giving constellation brands even more headaches. However was the unfortunate coincidence between its long planned on brand marketing campaign for hard seltzer and the growth of corona virus. Constellation is spending forty million dollars on a marketing campaign to launch. Its New Corona Hard Seltzer in North America according to industry publication food
Has Canada reached Peak Craft Beer?
"Do you know how far away from you your nearest brewery is. I have no idea where you live of course but I'm willing to bet. The answer is a lot closer than it used to be. No matter where you live in Canada and this goes I. Small towns of like three hundred people in cities of more than three million there is a craft brewery around the corner over the past decade. The rise of craft beer has actually been one of Canada's biggest entrepreneurial success stories but how long can that really last as an example? There are four cool little India Breweries within walking distance from my house. And I love it but I would have to be stupid to expect them all still be thriving and five here. Wouldn't I I mean there has to be a limit to how much Canadians love their beer. Right Jordan Heath Rawlings. This is the Big Story Stephanie. Marotta rights for Global Males Report on business. Hey Stephanie thanks for having me no problem. We're talking about one of my favorite topics. We had to do something. That's when I picked up the phone and said I'm calling you to talk about beer. Nolan's hung up on me amazing So start by putting into perspective. I guess because we're GonNa talk about this whole industry just how fast and big the rise of craft beer in Canada has been. It's been incredible. I think one of the reasons the story is resonating. So much with people is because no matter where you are in the country. It seems like there's a new craft brewery opening every month. Almost it's just skyrocketed so the number of breweries over the last five years has more than doubled so in two thousand fifteen. We had three hundred and eighty breweries across the country. That is now almost a thousand. It's crazy it's been astronomical and really that growth looks very different depending on where you are in the country so in Ontario British Columbia and Quebec. Those have the most mature. Craft Brew Industries at the moment and the between those three provinces they make up more than seventy five percent of all the craft breweries in the country but that growth has really caught up in other regions as well so last year. New Brunswick and Nova Scotia saw some of the fastest rates of newbury openings in the country but really Alberta led the charge on they saw sixty percent increase from seventy breweries. Two hundred and twelve breweries. Year-over-year year over here. So it's been an incredible amount of growth and when you have so many players coming into the market over just half a decade. The growth is just astounding. So how does that happen? A part of that a small part of it may be is the cool factor. No no that episode of high met your mother when Ted and Barney say that they want to open up a bar. It seems like a really fun place to be. But what's really interesting? Is that when you actually get to speak with these brewers? They have the most incredible stories. These are lawyers and engineers nurses and former Labor workers who are leaving their careers to come into this burgeoning industry and they're starting off by brewing in their garages before they scale to larger brick and mortar institutions. And they're starting off in these communities. That are really hungry for some economic development. So they're creating jobs and they're bringing money into the area. That's an attracted a ton of investment so from government investment arms like the BBC to private equity investors. A ton of money has been flowing into this because everyone wants a piece of this pie of on one end the success story of of creating jobs in an economy. That looks like what we're in right now and then on the other side have being able to say that Own a piece of a brewery. That's something really fun to say right. Answer the government gets into it then because these are popping up in neighborhoods that could use sources of jobs and economic development and so they will give them start up money essentially. Yeah through a couple of different methods. So we've seen a lot of investment from from governments into the sector so last year we saw the federal government and the government of Ontario Invest One Million Dollars Into Twenty craft breweries in Ontario. And that's in addition to a one point six million dollar investment from two thousand sixteen now while that sounds like small amounts in isolation. We're seeing a number of provincial governments across the country. Do exactly the same thing and further that we're seeing economic development arms like the BBC and the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency investing in in Craft Breweries and providing them with start up loans. When you put all of that together with a national scope that's a ton of money going into opening new breweries and then on the flip side. We've seen a lot of private equity go into this as well so often times when breweries can no longer access government funding for whatever reason it seems like a pretty easy thing to go out and find an angel investor venture capitalist. Who who wants to throw a million dollars into into a berry so this growth is still happening this year as we're talking. Yeah so the growth is expected to continue to climb. I was chatting with the Canadian. Craft brewers association and they expect another two hundred craft breweries to open up this year alone. That's a twenty percent increase year over year compared to the thousand that we currently have so. It's it's just going to continue to rise but there's gotta be a tipping point right like how much beer can Canadians reasonably consume. And I mean that seems like a funny question but it's not like at some point we're going to saturate the market right. I don't doubt the Canadians can drink their fair share of beer. Sure at all But I've seen a number of industry watchers trying predict this tipping point. And this moment where we're going to hit peak craft beer and I've had a lot of conversations with Roy Moore is the people who fund And Brewery Associations and from what? I'm hearing across. The board is that we are at this tipping point so we're seeing a number of craft breweries closed. Get put up for sale or diversify away from craft beer altogether and a large part of that is because Canadians are drinking less beer really. We're seeing it in the numbers so fifteen years ago. Canadians drank so much beer. That beer sales made up for fifty percent of all alcohol sales in the country. Now it's at a point that's only nine percent and that gradual decline is quickening now. It's not all doom and gloom. Canadians are still drinking beer. Just in different ways so one bright spot is that comedians do seem to be drinking more craft beer even though beer sales are declining overall. So if we look at the L. C. B. O. Just to is late that as an example last year craft beer sales increased twenty seven percent year-over-year now that is slower than the forty percent increase in. They saw the year before in twenty teen while. They're still seeing a spike. It's beginning to slow down and despite that big surge in people buying craft beer. It's still only accounts for ten percent of total beer sales at the L. CBO. It certainly accounts for more than ten percent of the shelf space. It does luckily for grab brewers. It does a lot of liquor. Boards have been increasing. Their shelf. Space Craft Breweries little bits every year. Like Nova Scotia Liquor Corporation. They've increase their craft beer shelf space from twenty-seven percent last year to thirty two percent this year so we are seeing marginal increases and even at the L. C. B. O. I think is about eight years ago. They they listed thirty three different craft breweries and now that's increased to one hundred and eighty. The issue is that that falls far short from the three hundred breweries. That are in Ontario alone. There are one hundred twenty breweries that can't get listed and even if you are listed that doesn't mean that you're in every store across Ontario depending on how much beer you produce. You might only be able to get listed in two or three Elsie. B O's within a certain distance from your store so that speaks to something that I wanted to get out because you talk about. How startups for Craft Breweries are exploding? And everybody wants to get into it. And it's not that hard to get funding and get going. How difficult is it to sustain a craft brewery as as a business you know how many of these Newbury's actually break even Make money statistics. Canada says that only fifty percent of the small to medium size breweries in the country are profitable and from speaking. With brewers. It takes about five to seven years to start turning a profit now. We're at an point in candidates beer industry because craft beer really started to grow about five years ago. So we're just now hitting that point where craft brewers are starting to figure out whether they're able to make ends meet and what. I'm seeing a lot of something that I'm hearing. That crafters trying to do is they're trying to get in on different segments. That are growing faster than craft beer so at a point where consumers are moving away from beer and drinking more wine. They're drinking more spirits more ready to drink products. So I'm hearing. The brewers are getting into distilling. They're getting into some of. Those funds Seltzer products. That are more low calorie and speak to a healthier lifestyle. So you're starting to see little tweaks and you're also seeing some brewers start to realize that maybe they can't make this work after all this podcast will be right back after a really quick message. Can you guess the average dollar amount Canadian households have in savings according to the most recent data? It is just eight hundred and fifty two dollars now. The recommended rate of savings in Canada is ten percent and traditionally Canada's historical rate has been around seven point five percent last year though. It was one point seven. That doesn't sound like a lot because it isn't it can be hard to save today for people who are often carrying debt. It can be even harder in fact thirty nine percent of Canadians right now of all ages. Don't think they will ever save enough for retirement. So how do you save when there's not much there to start with? Well you need a plan and we'll be back after this episode to you how. Rbc's my advisor can help you get started even if you only have a little you can visit our BBC Dot Com slash advisor to find out more right now or enjoy the rest of this podcast and we'll be there at the end to tell you more.

"There's no turned but but also to monitor their intake interesting yeah so i feel like to meet these drinks are vodka. Soda is the godfather but the drinks are not straying. I think they're just accessible in a new way. <hes> yeah sure great yeah. It's like a it's a canvas but also a flavor because my problem with on premise traumas vodka soda as it tastes like shit so if you put a little low flavor in there may be a little more palatable. I'm on board also in the health category. We should mention that. Most of these are gluten free sharar so people care about that beer drinkers who can't handle gluten or just don't want it might gravitate towards words spike seltzer. I think yeah and i think another major point here is that <hes> people like activities. Activities are big and you can't really slam a beer and then play spike ball in the same way he now. They are point yeah minna. I don't know if you know this about me but i am constantly fighting the hangover's ooh yeah i'm battling them a lot but one of the ways. I soften them up. A little bit is by not drinking any sugar category to the seltzer bubble when four loko dropped their new spiked seltzer product. They captioned it. Hard seltzer ran so we could fly but really. I think that the seltzer movement or lacroix roy ran so hard seltzer could fly yes. I can't separate this movement. I don't think this drink would be having. It's boom without the boom of seltzer. Seltzer has been big for the last two years as people try to get off of soda and they realize like oh coke is not good for me. I need to drink something that has zero calories as yen's oh they've been getting into roy and all of the lacroix competitors and now oh here's an alcoholic version i can just continue mccray habit. It's just water with a little bit of fun next category sobriety. Did you know sobriety is in its n daniel. Is it yeah it's they're sober influencers. I think there are people are also sober curious. People are just trying to get into yeah big time so low a._b. Drinks in general aw are kind of on the rise and well. This is not that much different than a beer in terms of how alcoholic it is. I think it just plays into this idea of people trying to get into session drinks or trying to have a drink that is just not going to completely kill them next up. It is trendy okay. Yeah waclaw is inexpensive. The seltzer drinks are inexpensive and also cool in a way that is both ironic and ironic. Yes well also the cans are very cute and pretty an aspirational fancy looking so they're good for the instagram but they're cheap. It's accessible instagram thing. I actually think that this this movement parallels the obsession with jewel a little bit because it is better for you than the thing that everyone was used to. It is like fun fun. People make jokes about it. People love making jewish jokes. People love making jokes about hard seltzer. I bet the teams love it too. I'm not gonna make any. I don't know i don't go to parties anymore. We mean either but i'm just assuming yeah. I think you're right. I mean that's the point you were making but i think you're right that it is like the jewel uh-huh fun flavors are a little bit healthier yeah easy to sneak into places which leads us to portability and the low key aspect of of these cans.

It was completely not embraced people on late night. Show isn't used to make fun of zima and guys who drank zima as girly or kind of silly and now it's completely accepted. I think if they they're bringing back zima right they tried to bring it back and it filled well over to smooth. Didn't they have that mo- that commercial that does something something something different was their marketing slogan aw yeah i mean i think they were stumbling out of the gate. There are a lot of things wrong with fema but in this iteration of spike spike seltzer guys are all in at first. I think it was kind of ironic but now people seem to be embracing it with earnestness because now evolved bros. Can can accept their love of health. Yeah i think when something is better it's going to eventually catch on these are going to make people feel better in the morning. They're making them feel more. We're active but what about zima. I think that was before the health movement launched primarily out of the jersey shore television show is is that where evolved healthy bros. Came to be no guys who could care about their body very publicly. I don't think so but i can't think of an earlier representation of like like an egg white bro on on mainstream television so for me. That was a really important a pivotal moment in my life. <hes> i started doing my laundry laundry. So part of waclaw getting adopted by bro culture ironically or not is video from trevor wallis are are you familiar. Oh yeah so he is a comedian yeah like a viney youtube comedian and he did kinda tongue-in-cheek satire your video where he's bro who just loves waclaw yeah white cloth summer twenty nineteen baby cleaned a phrase. I know laws when you're drinking clause ause baby basically just a rich person's. Lima rita alan shirts that say that t shirt but white claw waco put a stop to it and i actually are laws which is funny money. They get shows you that white claw gets it well of course what do you think about about this. Expression ain't no laws when you're drinking laws hate it well. It's awful. I think he said it in a way where he was he was acting as a gross bro yeah satire tire but then it becomes accepted and then people say it ironically and then on ironically and then it's just like snake eating its tail. It legitimises a lot of very wrong very terrible. Is there are lots of laws. Please follow all right so to really understand spike seltzer and which is the best spike seltzer which when we should be buying we brought to the studio john carey noted bartender seltzer expert i think and all around ridge great human welcome to the studio. Thanks for having me. Could you talk a little bit about the alcohol. That's in these. It's a just sugar alcoholic. Fermented sugar basically basically yeah so i'm not like an expert on what a malt beverages <hes> but because of are like super cockamamie liquor laws we can't just put like vodka and soda into i can and i desperately wish that we could like in japan. You can get like japanese whiskey high balls at seven eleven and it's like heaven basically a malt beverages just a very high alcohol beer. It's made with with like grain and usually sugar to ferment into something. That's higher like mark twelve twenty percent alcohol so it's not a spirit indirect census basically just like a flavourless beer flavored john you have never had a spiked seltzer before and we're going to as quick as we can run through all these flavors and get get your take on them yeah but as someone who is a culinary expert in the field of mythology you you have a good sense of what these are gonna taste like you know there's so but also i know that from experience i've been developing something <hes> like a drink and are you getting into this game. Not this no but next podcast. We'll talk about it but it's really really really really hard to do this and make it taste. Good and berry flavors are kind of gross like briefer. It's really easy to do. I this is also very easy. Cranberries easy so it's like and they pick the right ones whereas like people trying to do like blue raspberry and it's like people are like watermelon like a taste like great bubbalicious. We're going to start with grapefruit bond invasive. Give oh great found my initial reaction. It's surprisingly flavourless. It is oh how how's the aftertaste. It's a little tinny gle almost metallic <hes> we could be okay if someone gave to me i with drink it again. Yeah yeah okay next clementine high viscous. You don't get a lot of hibiscus in this one. If you ate a clementine peel in grade right cranberry time i hate the smell of this one that also be also so bb plus pair elder flower. Ooh yuck yuck by far the best one really we yeah. It's really good jolly rancher but i think that's why it's good. It doesn't try to be something it's not. It's just like candied water next up. We have truly i mean huge costco fan and i don't mean this as a slight to costco but truly looks like the costco shelter. Yes kirkland yeah yeah exactly all right here. We go truly roma yet. That's the worst one i've had so far. Yeah mixed pack is like a huge red flag for me because it's all berry uh-huh various kind of yeah. It doesn't always crush it on the artificial flavor. We should try black cherry claw now to compare since we just had a truly it's better is also this kind of burnt sugar caramel thing. It's been actually in a lot of it's probably because of the the way they make the mall. Let's keep clawing. I'm going to try this grapefruit clot because i'm this is what i would gravitate towards. If i were on the beach thank you offer adopting claw instead set of waclaw. I okay we have got some head. Some some positive head nodding legit good. Yeah the bars pretty low like the success excess fill rates like the the margin between the two is pretty pretty narrow. I feel like the the goal with these. It's like be aggressively fine <hes> to wrap up <hes> i think we've decided added that these things exist there a fact of life very practical <hes> in terms of how good they were operating within a small window of quality and even the worst one of these someone gave to you at a party. You're not gonna turn it down right now and the best one. You're not gonna get excited are you. If you're at a convenience store that's a block away from the party and they have the worst flavor and you can choose to walk five blocks and get the best. Don't just get the worst one yeah and go to the party and live your life packing budweiser. I i think a major point that seems so obvious that maybe we don't need to talk about it is that if you really wanted to to be healthy you would just not drink and i think that i think that one of the reasons that alcohol things get so trendy and become so adopted by the culture in an ironic or an on ironic way is that i think that a lot of like bro culture especially but like party culture are looking for like minor justifications vacations and ways that it's like they legitimizes their drinking or makes their drinking feel like they're part of a movement or a fun thing and the kind of drown oh now at the idea that they're just drinking to get drunk but anything with party culture people are very open about that. They're drinking to drink but i think we're gonna get drawn tonight. Sure sure bedtime. Someone would say that but i'm also looking for these like slight justifications like let's have a claw night. It's a way to keep it from being depressing in a way a to prevent having to admit what the thing truly is and that's why i feel like summer summer. There's always a thing that's gonna be fun and in cutesy and it's just a way to distance ourselves from what's actually going on here. Which is that. We're all getting drunk. People get drunk. People nervous wanna be chilled. Clause laws away to hide your disorder. When we get back from break. We are going to go over the biggest food stories of the week.

We talk about the biggest food stories of the week. It's separate them with the sound of a ding like this and <hes>. I have nothing else to say. I've got my seltzer ready. Let's get into it. Okay daniel the big story of last week. As you know was the popeye's chicken sandwich and how obsessed everyone was with it. People were waiting in lines across the nation to get the sandwich this week. Popeye's announced that they are officially sold out much officially gone right. They're not officially sold out of. The sandwich said they're going to sell the sandwich but for now we are we're done. We're officially sold out there being cute with sharing their sold out. They're just they're infrastructure can't handle the sandwich right now yes so they are halting the sale of it so a lot of people were saying. Why can't you just bring my own done. Sell me put the sandwich together and then someone saying it's different. It's not just chicken sandwich yeah so it's a it's a larger piece of chicken. It's a larger piece of chicken tenders so they're sorta the chicken and then the here's the interesting part. I think they tweeted later want to be the first to know when it's back download the popeye's app and turn on push notifications. Oh yeah so it's all man is in yeah trying. They get trying to get some downloads. We've established that it is the biggest fast food release <hes> certainly of of our time and i don't i think they couldn't have been expecting something this great so so they must have regrouped this week and they were like how can we how can we channel this into something and they thought let's to drive traffic really really honestly. They had to regroup to figure out. How can they get a handle on this thing because it was getting a little out of control and they don't want people have the bad customer experience that they were having having waiting and having things we sold out stories were starting to come out about workers who had terrible experience being on the other side of it and had to work overtime loss. I think they had had to just like shut it down for a minute. Yeah bigger stuff out harness that fire yeah because this is out of control. How do you think it'll what do you think's going to happen when they re really said when they say okay. We got it back. I don't know i would assume that the interest would die down after a couple of weeks but maybe not yeah. Maybe people are just going to be obsessed this for a long time. Do you think in your opinion if they just shut it down forever has popeye's grown in popularity from this time time or bed. They got some new customers for sure but don't you think those people who are the new customers like i'm less. I feel like personally i didn't. I never got my hands on a sandwich. I'm less likely to go to popeye's now if they don't have it. Why because i'd be frustrated that i couldn't get. I think the i think the win is for the people who did not know popeye's went into try the sandwich wjr and then they're now new customer <hes> and the people who were die hard for popeye's now appreciate that there's a new item right. I'm curious whether this grew through their customer base if they never released sandwich again and other chicken sandwich news this week k._f._c. released a beyond chicken fried chicken sandwich sandwich meaning baked chicken. What is interesting about this is not that they are doing a fake chicken chicken sandwich but that they released it. One store and there were crazy z lines so people now just love lining up fergie thing well. They don't know if they're going to stumble into the next big chicken sandwich and be one of the early adopters also wonder cynically weekly if they made this release primed it four lines like they released it in one place that had bay publicity push rush like they were trying to recreate they wanted to be part of this narrative of people waiting in line for chicken like how nightclubs key people outside yeah or if they moved did up to try to catch some of this wave yeah like maybe they were going to release the next month and they're like wait. A minute people care about chicken people care about new product releases involving chicken. Yeah we miss the the chicken boat with a sandwich. Let's do this. That makes a lot of sense. I mean it's impossible to look at a release like this and not be like. How can we take some of how can we take this blueprint print and apply it to our own release. Would you eat a beyond chicken. Fried chicken kentucky fried chicken kentucky chicken. Yeah i mean i'll eat all these things. I want to dave even busters last night and got an impossible burger with bacon on it only because i would be like that'd be a funny thing to take a picture of how was dave and buster's busters relevant. I've heard it wasn't that good though right isn't that the word on the street like isn't that isn't it interesting though i feel like the one thing about the popeye's popeye's chicken was that it came out and they weren't throwing gas on the fire. Initially it was just a gimmick. There were people word of mouth. Tweeden media hang like boy. This new sandwich is really good ca- sandwiches come out all the time you know yeah. I think it's a big deal though i feel like the first i've we talked about this before but the first time time any of these brands released their first fake meat product. It's now going to be a thing yeah who hasn't mcdonald's mcdonald's. W._b._z.'s are yeah mcdonalds mcdonalds whatever they release. I it's gonna be momentous. Yeah so daniel recently weightwatchers now known known as w._w. Launched an app for kids and we have asked one of our writers and editors amy mccarthy to come on the show to tell us about it. Hey amy i hi. How are you guys so tell us what what is the app doing. And who are they targeting so the app targets kids as young as eight. I think equal to about age seventeen so that they recommend recommend for the program the app itself is free <hes> and you can download it on the app store which i did and you put in your height and weight and your what your goals are dr. They offer you some options which are pretty sad. Including of course lose weight. Make your parents happy and things like making getting more friends or being more confident. This is kind of a really bad thing overall and once you're into the app and you've set your goals you can input the foods that you eat every day so if you eat cheeseburger that would be a red food <hes> which would be something that you would want to think about or be mindful of i think the for wording that they use or yellow food or things like bread or peanut butter and things like that and then green foods going in the same lake like red light green light system that you're familiar with are things like fruits and vegetables pretty much it. I don't think there are any other foods that are not fruits or vegetables and those are things that you can and eat kind of infinitely into ram but you're limited in the number of red foods. You can have every day like kinda use. The app is if i was the <hes> overweight according to the b._m._i. Scale thirteen year old <hes> an input you know various ranges of foods like one day i said that i ate pineapple all day for all three meals and that didn't really seem to trigger anything with the with the app and so the for those who don't know weight watchers or w w th it's based on a point system so they're kind of taking what they do there but taking the points away for the kids so it's just red light green light yellow light right. It's those worth simplified and according to company this is a program that was developed by stanford university to kind of make that process easier and they say it. It doesn't create the same kind of issues that maybe assigning a number valujet might do in terms of how you things. I you know good versus bad art. We know that's not the case right. Kids aren't stupid made me when you said that it asks you questions at the beginning like what you wanted the app for <hes> what do you you think they were doing with that information. Was it changing your diet. If you wanted to make more friends or was it just to collect that data they are really interested from a market research perspective and what's motivating young people to lose weight. I firmly believe that curb. Oh and any other things that we watch our says. The target children is just a plan for the future is you can create that customer. At age ten. The likelihood that they're going to diet for the rest of their lives is incredibly currently high but just like dating apps are meant to help you meet someone so you no longer have to be on dating apps within the point of a diet app be to help someone get quote unquote healthy so they no longer have to use a diet up a weight. Watchers is a lifelong program and especially with the original wait. Why refuse to call it. W w still away watcher there you know the the people who lead weight watchers meetings or what they call lifetime member earth people that have maintained their goal weight and you're supposed sixty on the plan forever. You're supposed to keep tracking so that you don't slip up and have have to lose the weight again. They very much sell it as a way to healthily.
