Borat Subsequent Moviefilm Is the Movie America Deserves
"I guys. Yes. Couple of Baratz here to talk to Amanda and I about one of the one of the movie moments of the year really in in a way and I'm fascinated to talk to you both about it because you guys on your show regularly cover the intersection of culture and politics. That's something that Borat is very focused on. I'm just going to read the full title of this film for the listeners out there. In case they didn't get a chance to check it out. It's called Borat subsequent movie film delivery of prodigious bribe to American regime for make. Benefit. For make benefit once glorious nation of Kazakhstan, I could hardly get through that I wanted to ask you both to start when you saw that Sasha Baron Cohen was returning as. Borat in a in a film, a movie film had, what did you think? Did you think we needed this Brian? Why don't you start us off Of course we need it. Of course, we need it because. The people that Borat likes to have Mary Fun with are now running the country. As opposed to fifteen years ago where they were having a little meeting often some holiday inn somewhere in America. So. We need it more than ever I. Think. David, what about you? Well. I mean to take from O'Brien. Said I mean a lot of people may have made the argument that they're sort of like no comedy in the age of trump right? That like that we that reality is pushed has gone too far and and you know comedies we know it is impossible I mean. I don't think it was an accident that trump was literally a Sasha Baron Cohen character in this movie because trump is metaphorically as Barron coin character from fifteen years ago right? It almost. I I will say when you read the title. Chuckled and there's a point about like halfway through the subtitle. The laugh actually kicks in at first. You're kind of like over here again, and then you're like, okay, they're just GONNA like they're gonNA. Wear me down and I think there was a lot to the movie to me. That I don't like it warm down but it was like I I was skeptical of it at first because I felt like already knew the joke and but but it was comfortable and it was really funny at times there were times where it sort of fell flat but but going back to what I said the. The beginning of this ramble. On when it fell flat, seem like that's when it was like it was like inversely making its own point that there's no joke to tell. You know it was it was a very surreal viewing experience. Amanda do you think that we needed Borat to did you need to? That's the question is it isn't it who needs it and who is receiving it because I grew Brian like we need it in the sense that we are living in the joke now, and we are maybe not living in what Borat Rot. Borat kind of pointed out, and then in a way gave power to and obviously the the media nature of of Borat and the figures who are inborn add is something that Brian and David can speak about at length, but it's really turned on itself and inverted. So many times from two, thousand, six to two, thousand, six correct to two, thousand and twenty that. You can't tell which way is up and that's really interesting, but there's A. It's a bummer to talk about like intention in comedy and effectiveness comedy but I think the way this was framed and when this was released, we're going to have to talk about it a bit and I don't know whether it sticks the landing that it's trying to.

"Rogers wife Marcella back in Saint Joseph Missouri was devastated by the news of this strange crime scene not only was her husband dead. He'd been killed in bed with another woman immediately she hoped for some answers and in the week following the murder authorities interviewed over four hundred people when all was said and done, they came up with a surprising number of suspects. I there was roses ex-boyfriend named Danny Burton. Kicked out of their apartment for allegedly abusing drugs. He had also allegedly been stalking her in the weeks before the murder and rose had even reported him to her local sheriff's department. But when officers sat down with Burton he had an alibi then he passed a polygraph test. Another suspect was the bartender at the Amana. Holiday Inn allegedly and rose had gotten into an argument at some point that night after she and Roger arrived the following day, he left town leaving behind his last paycheck when authorities caught up to him, he joined the military and was stationed in Germany. It's unclear whether he was ever questioned. Meanwhile investigators continued digging into the case, and before long they were faced with a question no one liked asking was this the work of a serial killer? The most immediate suspect was Roger Sins uncle in law and escaped killer named Charles Hatcher prior to the Holiday Inn murders hatcher was convicted of killing two children. So homicide definitely wasn't out of his wheelhouse. In the weeks, prior to the murders hatcher had been locked up in a mental health facility in Nebraska according to some sources he had escaped just six days before the killing given that Roger was wearing his underwear. It was definitely possible. He knew the killer well enough to invite them into the hotel room without putting on more close. But why would anyone invited known killer into their hotel room to begin with? Ultimately. There wasn't enough evidence to decisively pin the crime on hatcher besides there were other cases trickling in that could link the murder to a more elusive nastier mind. A decade prior in Nineteen Seventy twenty-three-year-old Jack McDonald was found. Down on his hotel room bed at the travel inn motel in Meridian Mississippi like Roger and rose he'd been bludgeoned to death and the contents from a tube of toothpaste had been squeezed into the toilet. then. Just ten weeks before the Amana Holiday Inn murder, a twenty eight year old salesman named William Kyle was found dead at the Sheraton Motor Inn in Galesburg. Illinois he too had been bludgeoned with a tube of toothpaste squeezed onto the nearby carpet. Like Roger Kyle's wallet had been emptied and like rose, he was covered with a blanket but only partially. The toothpaste tube alone was enough to seemingly link these murders and investigator Paul Holes. A cold case investigator has become convinced that the three events are linked. Holes notes that. Tubes are sometimes squeezed out as a form of sexual climax by heroin addicts with erectile dysfunction. So it's.

"It was a peaceful fall day. The kind you could only get in a small town like Williamsburg the occasional car passing by once in a while a whiff of conversation but at the Amana Holiday Inn, things were busier than usual. The hotel was hosting a morticians conference. All of its rooms had been booked solid, but not everyone was visiting for the conference. The night before thirty two year old telephone technician Roger. Atkinson and twenty two year old nurse. Rose Burkard had pulled into the hotel's parking lot. Roger Shot Rose one of his boyish smiles as he put the car in park. What with Roger being married and rose a single mother it was hard to sneak away for a weekend but they had made it happen. The two lovebirds meandered into the hotel lobby where the front desk assistant told them. They were in lock there've been a last minute cancellation Roger and rose could have the very last room. The pair picks up their bags and made their way to room number two, sixty Roger fumbled with the lock as rose giggled flirtatiously. At last, the door swung open revealing the Dark Hotel Room Roger reached in and flipped on the lights then he and rose disappeared inside. It was now a little after noon on the next day and Roger and rose still hadn't emerged from their room. Meanwhile, the hotel's housekeeper had a job to do. She wrapped politely on the door expecting its residents to have left for the day. There was no answer but from the other side, the housekeeper. Sound of TV she unlocked the door and cautiously pushed it open. then. She gasped the site before her horrifying both Roger and rose were lying face down on the bed covered in blood. The backs of their heads appeared to have been bashed in rose was fully clothed and had been covered up with a bedsheet Roger on other hand was uncovered and wearing only his underwear. They had been like this for hours while the TV echoed through the lifeless room. When authorities arrived, they uncovered a series of bizarre clues for one. There didn't appear to be a forced entry. So whoever had killed Roger and rose had probably been invited inside. There also didn't seem to be any sign of a struggle or an attempt to escape. In fact, the two chairs inside the hotel room had been pulled towards the bed and neatly angled towards each other. It was as though there had been a conversation before the murder authorities even found strange boot markings on the desk near the hotel room chairs making it seem like the killer had kicked up his feet either before or after the murder. Rogers Wallet was laying on the floor with its contents scattered around, but roses wallet hadn't been touched. then. There was the bathroom. Inside investigators found a blood soaked towel with unidentified male DNA in the bathtub. Someone had emptied the contents of a tube of toothpaste. But perhaps, the most jarring thing in the room was a simple bar of soap. Someone had whittled it down then used it to write the word this on the bathroom mirror but this what and why. Coming up will investigate some possible suspects in Roger and roses double, homicide. High listeners. Here's a series I think you're really gonNA.

As Buchanan County Sheriff Department Captain Howard Judd observed the whole thing was overkill. And not just overkill premeditated. For one, the damage to Roger and roses skulls seemed to have been the work of an axe or hatchet had the killer used a knife or a gun the murder would have seemed more like a spur of the moment decision whoever had done it seemed to either have a vendetta or they simply cared a lot about their handiwork and judging by the bathroom they hadn't been in too big of a rush to leave. They may have even stuck around for a while to watch TV leaving it on when they finally exited the roof..
Potential Hotel Merger and Airbnb IPO
"We've got reports of a potential merger between two hotel operators overseas a corps which is based in France and intercontinental hotels based in. Although I H G. owns. Hotel brands like Crowne Plaza and Holiday Inn. Neither of the stocks are really moving a whole lot on this news, but this should be interesting to see play out in part because. I think this would create the largest hotel company in the world in terms of properties. It might in their hotel operators rather than sort of owners for the most part of hotel. So they're they're both reasonably asset light businesses If they were more in the business of owning hotels, themselves rather than providing management services. I think they'd both be in a lot more trouble stocks today because that that's a lot of near empty properties in a lot of cases, and so there. You know hoping that they get their management service bills paid on time by all those hotels who are owned by other companies. But yeah, they're the ones who create the brands where required the brands over the years they've got a lot of different brands posted these companies many which you would know but the sense that the merger makes a core is a strongest. In Europe. And as well in some parts of Asia and the Middle East and I H G intercontinental hotels group stronger here in the US with the Holiday Inn Crowne Plaza and also very strong in China. So it's a good geographical merger potentially although it seems very early based on the the reports to conclude that this is going to go anywhere. Yeah. Based on the stuff I read this morning there's definitely some smoke. We don't know if there's going to be fire yet. So we'll. We'll see how that plays out. Also airbnb has filed paperwork with the SEC for a confidential IPO and. I have no idea how this is going to go. Because right now AIRBNB is not disclosing financial information and they're not disclosing how many shares are going to be offered. so as someone who has used airbnb on multiple occasions as a customer and has enjoyed the experience based on what I'm getting from AIRBNB so far in terms of information, I have no interest in this whatsoever. Right No, you would not as an investor want to go too far down the road of the thinking about something it won't provide you any of the numbers and the numbers are unlikely to be attractive right now, which is one of the reasons why they are probably thinking they need the money as as bad as things have been for the hospitality industry and I think they're projecting or analyst or somebody is projecting that their revenue could be half of what it was last year the nevertheless, this might be a better time to take advantage of stock market. Enthusiasm of for companies like AIRBNB than at other times, it's it's valued. Its last round of. Raising money. I was valued of far cheaper than it was back in two thousand seventeen. So things haven't been going their way obviously, but they probably need the money. But at some point, they're gonNA have to give up some information. Aren't they? I mean if they if they file an s one. Yes. Yes. I mean unless there are. Really. Trusting investors out there I just love the name whatever's going on. I'm with you. Thousand shares. I. Don't care now they're now there are some investors like that out there, but they're not deep-pocketed wants. Some some people throwing money around these days in the market without looking closely at the numbers at times, but not enough of them to fund an AIRBNB. IPO.
The Truth About Fitness Culture and "Clean Eating" with Christine Yoshida
"Go talk to Christine Yoshida. So, tell me about your relationship with food growing up. I love this question and I love the response I've heard from your other people in your podcast and I can empathize so much with others and also feel pain for those some people on the podcasts that I might not have had the same experience. Me Personally I. Feel really honestly grateful for my childhood I really. Had A we food was really in abundance for us. You know group in A. Hispanic side of my family, my mom's side and the my dad's side was Italian and Scottish, and we really food was just how we got together. It was how we socialized I group actually poor but I wouldn't have known as a kid if we didn't have enough food I didn't know it I just know that there's Times now as an adult that we would go to my relatives house and eat or our family would by other groceries and stuff like that. But other than that I mean I just remember the Holiday Inn barbecuing we're always with our family and because my mom is younger nine actually and so there's a lot of relatives around. And California so that was. As a child a really great experience. Yeah, and it's that's interesting that you had the family support where even if you're struggling financially, you wouldn't have known it because you are able to rely on family members. For sure and then. I even live with my family members as a kid but then my dad got a better job as we got older moving. Across to Washington and that time we changed from low SDS to more middle upper class in. In Still Dan food was in abundance by remember that's when we have like all the kind of foods that may be. I didn't have never having. We were family. There is no moral obligation with food on, Asli. All Brands, all sugary soda. There was like no kind of off limits are covered always full with like different types of food and we were actually the house that like the kids always came to and I remember my friends being obsessed with the cover the oh my gosh for roll ups and all this different stuff and I was like, yeah, and our cupboards were never closed. It was just email you to and ice cream or and other different nutrition type of food. It was all food was kind of legal. That's awesome. And it's so interesting with like the other kids I've heard that experience so much from people and I wonder if I was that house for some kids growing up and just know it. But the kids who are restricted of foods at home and they go to the Kids House that has all the fun foods that where it's not a big deal and you're allowed to take whatever you want from the cupboards. It's like those kids who are restricted get. So kind of obsessed that they're like, ooh, got to eat all this while I'm here. Yeah and it sounds like you never had any of that which is nice. Yeah. Not as a kid I mean I now looking back at my friends at gets to that so much that maybe what you experienced yet, I mean my my family was very much like that. Like what you're describing to actually was you know had a lot of fun foods and. Snacks and all those things around never any prescriptions or restrictions on it but I think some of my friends definitely had like dieting parents and it was like all you know low fat or fat free foods at their house and I remember being like Oh. This is weird. You know this food is different still eight at I still enjoyed it but it was like. A different sort of curious as to why they didn't have the stuff that I had like where the gushers where the Oreo, who's where the So good. So good. So. It sounds like your family wasn't like healthiest at all when you were growing up. No, no, I mean I want to acknowledge I. DO think I have a lot of privilege personally and so I might not have received the same messages made my other families had about like finishing their food or stop eating certain food I think wide range of body sizes, McDermott like most people, and I just was very naive to. A lot of things but looking back I feel like my other relatives might have had a different experience than me. Yeah. That makes sense. So they got sort of diet culture messages about their body size whereas you didn't. Yeah. I was a kid I was very, very active, and so it was more like with sports like telling me to eat more doctors telling my parents I need you know adult size meal at McDonald's. cheeseburger. Because I was just so active that was my experience with food and kind of being told as a child. So it sounds like your relationship with food than was pretty intuitive like you were left alone for the most part other than to like, hey, eat more, which is such a rarity and Dia Culture Yeah in even if that was so it wasn't pressure to go beyond like what I felt comfortable with. You know it was just eating more palatable foods like stuff that she knew I would like that she would get more for me but yeah, I was very intuitive. So again,
Impact of COVID-19 on the hospitality industry
"Here's our conversation with the CEO of intercontinental hotels group D. for a challenging time for the industry I mean when you think about the impact that the travel restrictions social distancing borders being closed cancellation of conferences meetings and events you know we've never seen an impact the demand for the township like this no I when I look at the start of the year we had a fairly good January and February and then as an industry we saw revenues begin falling quite quickly it in March and and the impact on people's been significantly I mean this industry employees travelling towards one in ten jobs globally and so you seen millions of people in the U. S. become unemployed in a very visual creative talent and so keep help us understand how that plays through to your business you know by the numbers mean how many people have you have been affected within your company by this either temporarily or or god forbid permanently yeah so I mean we have a a model where we are basically a franchise or for most of our business right okay Mr tell that we have around the world no six thousand a really small businesses are individually owned hotel main point fifteen twenty fifty people on about four hundred thousand people who work in hotels around the world and many of those people today have been furloughed or been in being made employee and so on thankfully the U. S. impact the cash back then had the paycheck protection program which enabled the small businesses to hopefully retain a lot of the staff at the corporate level we've been cutting people's salaries we've been cutting capital expenditures really focusing on the quiddity to make sure that we can get through this very very challenging time in the industry having said that you know keep in having kind of an asset light business how is that protected you as a company overall from from falling into deeper crisis yeah it really I mean we were some of the less leveraged companies out there in this industry and because we don't know a lot of assets we have less exposure so about focus really isn't on customers and colleagues and our owners and how do we help all those different individuals and stakeholders get through this so customers been about giving them flexibility on bookings and so forth with a colleague has been helping them access the that the programs around the world whether it's the the program here in the U. K. with the government I'm basically funding up to eighty percent of someone to pay up to twenty five hundred pounds what is in the federal unemployment and local employment in the U. S. with our owners accessing small business loans that turn to grants to been very very focused on that because those are the people that being the hardest impacted and we know by looking after all the stakeholders and helping them get through this we can come out of this the stronger business and help your business but it is again yeah people talk about challenging I mean I know I've been to the financial crisis I've been through you know nine eleven and we've never seen demand drunk like this and I think and if he's going to have to think about how to come out of this and how do we work with government and we work as an industry to help businesses stay vibrant right during this time frame re open and then see what the what the new normal click going forward but we want to talk about that new normal for sure but one thing I want to ask you about keep before we get too far away from it is what the experience of your owners and your colleague said it has been in terms of accessing those small business loans because we're hearing hearing reports about availability we've heard a little bit of controversy of you know who's getting it ends not what's coming back to you as your colleagues report in well let me start by saying just just for the record I see we have not received any funds from the paycheck protection program full stop and we've been very focused on getting under there so we've been hosting webinars from day one helping owners get to these programs on it had really good success with it number of wonderful stories about hotels Holiday Inn express that was close was able to access the program and then reopen it hired staff back to sell it hasn't been perfect clearly by the think about the small business association I think process is normally about thirty billion dollars a year in the US and they did three hundred billion already in a month we'll testament to their if they're trying to help out as many businesses as they can the program need to expand you know one thing we've been saying to the government was great first then but this program is going to have to expand and be extended because it is not to be over a month be ready to go back to normal tomorrow and so we can see about the long term in health and stability of an industry it is one in ten jobs globally and in the U. S. as in the sector and so that's a lot of people who we need to look after a lot of small businesses who buy from local vendors who hire local construction workers ability to tell if it's the interconnectedness of our economy we have to recognize to make sure we can kind of help work through that together does the government understand that Keith do you think they understand that when you get on the other side what really needs to be done I think you know I've actually had a couple of calls with the U. S. said we've been engaging with the White House with the Senate commerce I mean it they really do understand that they had to move quickly they do seem to understand that they're going to have to do more so hopefully they'll be able to get the next part of the package out on but I think it's a responsibility of business to help continue to educate them on how this is unfolding the impact is going to have more broadly and also have a part of the solution to because we're trying to help out as much as we possibly can we are we are hosting frontline workers in medical professionals all around the world in our hotels no we donating hundreds of thousands of dollars to food banks in different markets around the world to help out people who are in need we're providing to a great initiative call purchase peptic first responders first giving thousand room nights to first responders who close the medical facility need accommodation I think that's what the issue how we have to rally around how can we help get through this both by supporting owners supporting colleagues also out front line workers and medical professions and keep it as you look around the world as you pointed out it is Carol point on the introduction truly a global company you probably have some inputs that other CEOs don't have in terms of how this looks on the ground in different markets around the world what are we missing what should we know about maybe some things and and the way this virus is manifesting in the economic manifestation at different points of the globe it's quite interesting use being the country's who've gone out quite quickly on testing quite quickly on contact treating and understand the use of technology to be able to really manage it and manage the economic impact of open up parts of the economy also countries with they've got very close borders or New Zealand being put out there and in a straight come quite well now so countries that have been able to act quickly decisively on testing and trying to think has done a better job Kevin economy's going they'll be critical for the US to do that and in Europe as well too and that's keep are the CEO of intercontinental hotels group joining us from London obviously Carol no business are very few businesses have been changed like hospitality right reminding us that tourism is responsible for one in ten jobs globally so it has a big impact on the global

Opening Act - Rumors in Rock
"First false rumor. Did you ever hear the rumor about Keith? Moon driving a Rolls Royce into a hotel pool. I've heard a lot of stories about Keith. Moon well. He is the quintessential rock and roll guy and bad boy he definitely collected Nazi memorabilia. He may have bitten. Steve McQueen's Hog and blew up his drums win. The WHO played on the smothers brothers. Comedy Hour. I cannot wait to do his episode I am. I have like four books based on. Keith Moon I am. I am locked and loaded. I Love Keith. He is my soul. Well so those things may be true however there was a rumor that he drove a Rolls Royce into a pool at the Holiday Inn in Flint Michigan on his twenty. First Birthday. This is not true. According to Pete Townsend. The story is actually a combination of two different stories. That has become one not true rumor. So Keith Moon. In one of the stories like one of the incidents he left the Hamburg off of a car and it rolled into a pool which was under construction and to not have any water in hit home. Which would be worse though driving? Dr Into a pool with water or driving a car into a pool without water but he didn't drive the car into that. I'm just like either one either or I'm just saying like it just rolled in on its own. Which would do more damage I think you're pretty much screwed either way fair enough. The cars a loss of it goes near the pool. Yeah Okay and then so the second story that this was combined with to create the not true drove. Rolls Royce. Into a pool was that he charged new car to the band. Who refuse to pay for it. So Moon drove it into a muddy pond in his garden and call the dealer to come pick it up. So it's too true. Stories rolled into one story right. That's not true. Yeah Oh yeah. It's incredible and that's not our last Keith. Moon rumor either. Nope our next one which is true now okay. I should say with the caveat that these are true and false based on articles that we both read and so there might be room for error. So this is just like fun. Yeah it's just fun and it's inauguration. It's yeah just what we found. No one has photographic evidence. It's just fun fun so I hope you guys out. Don't get angry and you're like that never happened or that did happen bub-bubba so like don't don't get mad at us is just this is just meant to be fun and a little bit looser so and just for us to kind of talk off the cuff so Our next one. Which is true. Is All about Ozzy Osbourne. Oh my so ozzy. Osbourne achieved infamy overnight after incident on January twentieth nineteen eighty two in Des Moines Iowa during the height of his drug problem. That is putting it mildly. Ozzy Osbourne was performing when an audience member through a bat on stage. The singer believing that it was rubber and I do believe that he thought it was robbery. I don't think he would have. I believe that too. Yeah bid off its head as a stunt only to find out that the bat was real and alive not only that but as he declares in liner notes to the two thousand two reissue of diary of a madman. The Bat wound up biting him as well which forced him to be treated for rabies. The incident fed his rock madman legend along with the one time that he bit off the head of a dove which basically what happened was when he first met with Columbia records in Nineteen ninety-one. He took a live dub into the meeting with him and bit off the head in front of the horrified executives. Awful yeah so crazy man out. I wouldn't sign him to a record deal yeah. He was also arrested for urinating on. Or near the Alamo. And while on tour with Motley crue he allegedly got into a one upmanship. Dare contest with Nikki. Nikki six and I'm sorry that is at is a contest. I would never even get close to know but he ended up snorting a line of ants better than biting the heads off live animals. I think though no okay. The dove thing is kind of unforgivable. The bad thing is understandable. But you snorted a line of ants would if they were fire ants also. You just have ants in your sinuses now. I'm sad I read that. Oh my God you have to elaborate immediately regretted it I apologize. You should move on move on Thanksgiving on next all right. Here's a good one Kay cass. Elliot choke to death on a ham sandwich. Can We bury this now? Please yeah really not cool. I don't like this lie at all. This rumors terrible are you. Doing Mama Cass. Yes I am all right so this came up. Following a series of sold out gigs. In London Mama Cass retired to her apartment where she died of heart failure on July. Twenty Ninth Nineteen Seventy Four. A rumor spread very quickly that she died from choking on a ham sandwich which is just a horrible thing to say you know yes. She was a little overweight route. So it's believed that the rumor started when Dr Anthony. Greenberg the physician who I examined CASS. After her death wrote she appeared to have been eating a ham sandwich and drinking coca cola while lying down a very dangerous thing to do. She seemed to have choked on her ham sandwich. So so great job Dr Greenberg for that one. But point of fact her autopsy showed that a heart problem leading to heart. Failure was the cause of death not a sandwich or any other item lodged in her throat or trachea. She had actually had very little to eat the day before she died like her stomach was pretty clear. No dead I'm actually going to piggyback and double down on a Mama Cass and Keith Moon. True story with us. They were not but they did die in the same apartment. Yeah rockstars have been taken from US. Way Too young and it just so happens that two brilliant musicians died in the same apartment at the same age of thirty two Singer Harry Nilsson I love. That's my alarm. Every morning I wake up to his song. GotTa get out okay. If you've seen the show Russian dolls you'll know why I wake up to a song every day but He renounced his London flat to friends when he was traveling. And so on June twenty ninth nineteen seventy four Mama Cass of the Mamas. And the Papas was staying in the flat while she was on tour and died of heart failure in her sleep and on September seventh. Nineteen seventy eight Keith. Moon of the WHO overdosed on a sedative in that very same apartment which is eerie because they died in the same apartment under the same landlord at the same age. How crazy is that? That's a little

A Chat with Andy Cohen, Co-Founder of Beverly Hills Motoring Accessories
"This is it manner. Part of the cars that matters equation has more to do with the people that own them and drive them and love them that it does about the cars themselves. That's where my guests dandy. Colin is really just exactly the kind of person we WANNA talk to get a sense of of how cars that matter have affected him. How in many ways? He's been one of the arbiters of taste that has helped to determine Herman which cars do matter. India president of Beverly Hills motoring accessories company that began in one thousand nine hundred seventy six back at a time when well cars were. We're not quite the uniform transportation pods that they are today. So we WANNA talk to Andy about a lot of those things Andy. Welcome to the show and We look forward to learn a little bit about your car. Is that matter sure. Thank you very much. I was at a young age. Twenty years old. Living in New New York Long Island to be interested in cars at that time was very looked down upon. What part of Long Island did you go up on? Great and what year are you talking about. Say Graduated High School in Sixty four so in sixty four. You think people look down on someone who was a car aficionado in New York. Oh boy do over at Roosevelt raceway and near Roosevelt field where they had all those great straightaways and we could see what our cars could really do when someone had to give somebody some cute girl the pink slip of our car before we showed off the new engine. We put into a car that would otherwise have gone very slowly and then a surprised everybody with the power behind our hot Rod. I would bet that you ruled the roost back. Then well I I did that I could. Everybody remembers their first car. The ones they saved up for even built from scratch per andy talked his father into buying a sixty four pontiac. Tempest tempest within three twenty six cubic inch v eight and a three speed stick but then six months later they came out with that. She te'o and I'm thinking God. Why didn't may have that when I got my dad by car so I have the scheme us what away for the weekend with my mother to Florida and I said took me and my friends we're GONNA make this tempest into GTO? So I went into a reckoning. You heard I bought a three eighty nine cubic inch motor. Because that's what they were. You're from a Grand Prix and I proceeded to concoct a story that I was riding on the boulevard. I hit a rock broke the oil pan at Emmett if the engine I didn't fall out. Yeah so have this game I went and get the motor from the wrecking yard. What to put it in it was completely different than the GTO engine and it took four months? Let's get everything all about at the play hood at the custody headers. I mean everything was different. My Dad was taking a bus and very mad at me and I just said New New York wasn't a place for me. I didn't like the call. I didn't like the weather I didn't like crowds. They didn't like anything so I said southern California's it so to move out here. You're sixty seven nine hundred sixty seven. I didn't know anyone I didn't even know which way to go so I got off. The Plane Got Century Boulevard. went to the four or five Rui and said go north or South. I don't know because I didn't know anyone turned left and went north. I got to the top of the pass going down into the San. Fernando Valley was September thirty degrees hotter as they went down into the valley. I loved it because the hotter the better so I went down. The Hill got off at Ventura. Boulevard saw Holiday Inn and kind of made that my center for a few years Earth. A great story. I don't even know if that's repeatable then Robert. He moved out here in sixty seven. That's right at the man that's when you wanted to be in the car scene gene so it begs the question Andy. What was your first car when you got out here? My first car that I built actually was a nineteen forty four woody. That already had a three twenty seven. I'm an engine in it and I actually have restored three times. They still have. It's black and has corvette motor independent suspension drives drives like my maserati fantastic so I got the combination combination of of all those things and I actually bought my first Ferrari in nineteen seventy eight. It was two three eight one of my friends who have bought it from was far Dillard to Mexico and he said Handy you interested in buying Daytona spyder. I said sure tell me about it. This was a nine hundred seventy eight. It was owned by a prince. Turki I think is still around his predecessors are in Newport Report Beach Daytona spider and ill will not one of those fake streams ruined and in fact talk about like before the Internet. The only way I could find out if it was is a railway. Todo Spider was semi telex the primary factor. And then three years later. I found out that that car was the first Daytona spyder made. What a fantastic art art? That's one of the cars of everybody's dreams. I mean they tone. A spider is an iconic thing and boy is certainly created a sensation. Such that there was so many saws all taken AAC into the roofs of perfectly good Daytona. coupes that yeah. They ruined a lot at Daytona Coupe. They shared that one hundred. Twenty two daytona spiders for all years and it's still one of the most sought after valuable cars. Of course I sold it a long time ago. Well those are the stories. That'll be another show cars that matter that we wish we still had but it I think that's that's the part and parcel of the process to you. Know we're just custodians of these things and I think the real the real Enjoyment is yes Being able to kind of cycle through an evolution of cars in our stable. Unless you're one of these guys that has the resources and the and the the Kind of mental wherewithal to encompassing a garage. Full of hundreds of cars. It's it's too much of a good thing and I think being able to cherish a prize that they tone a spider a couple of other special personal examples. That's what car ownership is really all about. What was your first Special Cairo? Oh Gosh my first. Special special car was the first one that I could afford. That was quite triumph in and of itself and not a triumph literally it was actually a BMW sixteen hundred and Back like Nice start. Well no nobody knew what those things were. They were just little ten shit boxes back in the early seventies but they were quite a handful for a guy learning the whole essence of vehicle dynamics handling dynamics hammocks what does it take to actually make a car do certain things and those were manual back. Then they were all manual and You know you really had to work hard to to make that thing go fast. You know the old all saying you know you can have more fun making a slow cargo fast than a fast cargo slow and it certainly holds true with something like that little forbidding or BMW. Would you want that Car Oregon today you know. I actually tried to find bill. I'm sorry I sold a damn thing but you know when you're a college student and you're kind of starving. You have to do it. You have to do. Actually I had different priorities forties. I sold it to buy a stereo. I remember that guy that came to buy it. I was trying to sell it for twelve hundred dollars. Exactly what I paid about. Maybe a year before so this guy comes to my mother's house where I'm staying over the summer and he was kind of a shifty looking character. I'm not sure where he was if I had again. I'd say someplace like Transylvania and after talking a little bit of negotiation he says I'll give you six hundred dollars and my monkey a said. Oh boy I love monkeys and stuff. But I'm in college. Listen I got a roommate and I rather have the twelve hundred bucks. I figure it was like an organ grinder monkey or something like that but Needless to say we did a cash transaction the BMW MWR away. I've been looking for ever since and is the monkeys fill around so feeding you. I'm not you q m three sixty three. If anybody ever sees. He's a black California played out there with those numbers.

Even after he dropped out of high school he would continue to sell to his. GED Randy would say honestly. I didn't even think about it as drug dealing it was just a way. Okay for me to smoke without having to pay for Kumon tally. When did you first smoke? Pot Yeah Probably fourteen fourteen I think at that point I was too afraid of it because like there is on on my way to school. There is a tunnel that went under a freeway. Go through and like that's where like the the Estonians of the burnout so by smoke and they all kind of frightened me a little bit rightfully so they were kind of rough kids but I I it was never about that in high school. I thought like I think looking back on. It was pretty like dude intervene. Kinda like weird. I couldn't wait to smoke pot. Yeah Yeah I would've smoked pot way earlier if I were popular enough to have any friends. Yeah like years later I realized tons of kids I knew were smoking weed and they were like totally cool but it was just like those tunnel. Kids'll uh-huh scared me away from it is the first time I smoked was in college On top of a parking garage that was across the street from our dorm And of course like it was out of an apple. Of course yeah I think everybody's I Branches out of an apple and of course it didn't have any effect act on me and then the second time it did me and my boy tyler went back to our dorm room and we did freestyle raps over McNamara. She's a few hours. That's that's the way to do it. It was very sick. I mean when I was a kid like we'd culture was just so much it was just painted in such a different way. Yeah you know like it's fly out of lax with weed in your pocket. They were like we don't care some of these stores. La Look like the frigging apple store like men and it's crazy and it's like it's very convenient and you don't. You don't feel weird about buying pot but I feel like I definitely like missed out on like that. Like illicit elicit like. Yeah I used to smoke such crappy pot but the fact that there are people making billions of dollars off a weed right now and still people serving life sentences for possession national or selling is a huge problem that we should address maybe an another another day on another episode pats anyway it by the age of Nineteen Randy began working for construction company where he continued to sell it. Because he's not only a jug. Dili's Kinda just like a lazy like he's he jug dealer because like I don't know who's round man overtime it's clientele grew increasing the size of orders as well as prophets as sports illustrated. PUT IT in time. Joints turned into Baggies baggies. Turned into bag bags turned into bricks. rix became bales ails sales of a push. teed Johnston the BAGGIES. I can't do it slow anyway. Now it's hard. He's very good to the one thousand nine year. Old Randy drug dealing was the most promising opportunity yet he said. Let's just say I was definitely making more money. Then I made Neilan boards all day. I believe one of his last purchases on his first I just want to point out. How like good? This dude is at just sound clips. Yeah you know like yeah. Very romantic quotes. Yeah yeah one of his first purchases with his newfound wealth was a twenty seven foot magnum sports speedboat. He purchased for eighteen grand. Initially the boat was only. I used recreationally. He would jump waves and just you know cruise around there but before long an associate recommended he put that boat vote into quote commercial. Use like selling ice cream from the boat. James I doubt it. Oh I looked up these magnum votes This speedboat in particular is like so cool yeah just long as hell low fast. They're sick this guy's cool and and just like that Randy lanier move from being a low level drug dealer to a mid level trafficker in the timing. Couldn't have been better It it was the early nineteen seventies. It was a smuggler's Paradise Man. It was like the pirate days trafficking into the US specifically really from Columbia was still unknown. Threat that would soon become one of the biggest drug crazed sees in US history and a new exotic strain of marijuana called Colombian Colombian gold was being grown on Colombia's Guajira peninsula and it was beginning to flood the American black market. The arrival of Colombian gold fueled fueled a boom in America. Known as La Bonanza meeting. Better the mayor which loosely translates into the marijuana. Bonanza guys we gotTA Marijuana Bonanza Hands. Of course Florida was the best place to import such a large amount by the early eighties. About three quarters of the United States marijuana supply originated from Columbia Razi in his first mission. He he went to the Bahamas to pick up one ton of marijuana. So you're gonNA see like yeah I'm going to grab my boat to the middle of the ocean and pick pick up a ton of pot two thousand pounds a week it's crazy Randy showed up to these specified coordinates in the middle of the ocean and another other. Bigger boat would pull up next to them and the the we yeah. What's up guys like? And they transferred all the bales from the big boat into the whole of Randy's speedboat and then he would get the hell out of there all right thanks town to go back toot sweet right. I picture him just like wearing a cowboy like no shirt gene short. I'm imagining as not to become a in in the story from now. Yeah I think that's a good way to imagine This this technique was super common speedboats. Like Randy's were fast enough to evade the long long arm of the law and it wasn't difficult for smugglers to slip up the intercoastal waterway and hide a labyrinth of Florida swamps. According to a report one trafficker could earn a return investment of around one hundred fifteen percent so it made sense for randy to do this with a speedboat and naturally after you know I mean it sounds like this is like trying to get people to do it which they probably were you can get a return of one hundred and fifty. Why don't you come to this lunch at the Holiday Inn? And I'll I'll tell you all about a way that you can get up to one hundred and fifteen percent return on your investment with one Boron. We'll even Lisa the boat. Yeah very reasonable reasonable interest rates. Naturally ready was hooked. He did this trip. He did this kind of trip often. In spite of risks linear loved tempting fate eight and living on the edge of disaster for Kenny loggins lurk he had multiple close calls including one time almost sinking his boat as it was way down down so much by marijuana despite everything he frequently alluded capture by the US coastguard and received a twenty five percent. Cut of his delivery. Delivery seems like a lot. I mean he's taking all the risks to me. That's I guess he was just like a runner yes he wasn't dealing to the public anymore. Now he's there's like a guy from the ocean is a post mates for we. Yeah in a in a way. Yeah do you post Manson anymore. I use post meets way too much. I try to be waste free But you know sometimes you just you just want to pack of EMINEM. I know in one thousand nine hundred ninety six at the age of twenty two Lanier married his high school sweetheart. Pam uh-huh with her help. He opened a jet ski and boat rental shop near Fort. Lauderdale as a front to launder the money and present an air of legitimacy gene under the guise of a boat rental shop he soon purchased a sixty five foot trawler. I looked. I looked up with these are trawlers are basically really big boats votes There could be like recreational trawlers or fishing trawlers. Like just imagine a sixty five foot boat milk you can look it up Your you'll probably imagine the right thing. It's a big big boat with low. Yeah he got one of those with Got A lot of room. That's bigger than I thought. Yep Yep sixty five feet him with a boat this thing that is a thick composed he could smuggle directly from Columbia. No longer having to stop open meet a A mothership down to the Bahamas with each delivery he made with a sixty five foot boat he could smuggle over eighteen thousand pounds sounds of pot into the US that allowed sweet sweet dreams Enoug- soon despite massive quantities. He has now smuggling he was always smart smart about it. Never visiting import twice in a row. He would load up in the port of Santa Marta in Colombia and he would either doc in the US in in New Orleans San Francisco and sometimes bridgeport Connecticut Far Ways up the coast. Yeah I mean just looking at those three locations locations that's a huge spread Like some of those trips could take like a week. Some of them can take like three weeks to get there. You know that's crazy. Yeah smuggling muddling much like racing and comedy is all about timing Lanier loved loved the adrenaline rush of almost being caught doing something so illegal but he needed more one day while visiting an auto show that was taking place. Within the Miami Ame Convention Center Linear stumbled upon a booth that was sponsored by a local driving club. He immediately realized that racing would give him the high he needed and impulsively possibly signed up and that is when the racing career of Randy Lanier started in one thousand nine hundred ninety eight at the age of twenty four to the guys. I'm twenty six now. You don't even own one boat. I don't own a boat. Never smuggled shifts this dudes in his third career now. Yeah he started out as like get drug dealer. And he's a drug trafficker now owns a boat rental company. That's three and now he's like you know what man I think. I'm going to give this race car driving the try. It's awesome randy bought in nineteen fifty-six Porsche three five six speedster for seventy five hundred bucks and competed in the production class races at the SCC a southeast regional championships. Although he had no clue what he was doing he was a natural with each race. He proved drastically eventually winning the e production class in nineteen eighty at age. Twenty six. How old I am? I've never won any production class. Some feeling inadequate inadequate. But that's fine
