"A very key it. You know a lot to be proud about that. You know this eighteenth birthday mayo than to get the eighteen. that's good. I don't want us to end on a on a downer but i do think it's worth saying that arthur's younger brother doesn't survive. He gets shy that that His father also get shot And gets murdered He talks about that in Hope reality that Curtis gates who. I really adore also gets shot. That a lot of the people who fall in love with in this movie artist here. Now immortalized in this movie. Like this is where they are. This is where they exist now because they didn't get to survive in a world violence and it is great for william arthur that they're still there and they get this. We don't ever really know that their friends in the making of this movie it feels like nah they are they get the hug kinda later on. They are still friends today. They still seem to have a really good bond. The i felt like that has to be acknowledged one hundred percent boy me. This has been amazing to chat with you about this movie. And what a great way to the sears. We ended on some too high notes. And now you know you forgot you. Never ask me if there is a better view. Oh my gosh did not yes. Is there bad review now. There isn't there actually isn't that i would take like a second in. Read one last thing ebert side. Because i think it's beautiful and it's about something even bigger than this ebert writes a film like hoop dreams is what the movies are for. It takes us shakes us and makes us think in new ways about the world around us. It gives us the impression of having touched life itself. That's where the documentary titled comes from. Many filmgoers are reluctant to see documentaries. Reasons i've never understood. The good ones are frequently more absorbing and entertaining than fiction. Hoop dreams however is not only a documentary..

"On my list but then also in the grand scheme of history if you ask anybody like hey what do you think won the best documentary oscar. Ninety four they'd be like hoop dreams. They wouldn't even think about about maya lin which i hear is great but they would say hoop dreams so the oscars oscars dobie anything. Then don't they don't mean anything because look at that look list from nineteen ninety-four like shawshank redemption which we both love pulp fiction forrest. Gump like if you look at those three films. If i'm looking at those films i go pulp fiction definitely one that year not forrest gump but far as at the that. That's the forest gump. Here but fold. Fiction is the one that i think shushing to. I don't want to sit on chechen. Because people love it but go ahead fiction but pulp fiction redefined cinema to a certain extent it brings quinn tarintino aesthetic copycats. Come in and you could say maybe i happen. Reservoir dogs but i think pulp fiction is the mainstream version of this new style of director. And i think that's robert rodriguez. I think that that's I think that there's that whole crop. That kind of comes in you know in that. Miramax kevin smith that whole that whole era That's really interesting and and fuck it like it's an honor to be nominated. They're great movies. And we just talking about the academy awards and all this kind of bullshit but when a film is on a salable it will be remembered and no one will care about the academy awards because it will care about what the thing is we. We saw it with chariots of fire. Which is like wait that one. And when you look at the other films that was nominated against. You're like wait a second. But that doesn't make any sense. They split the votes. We don't know here. We do know. But i'm surprised there aren't more of these movies about the you know. I made you think the thirty for thirty days a great job of doing amazing sports. Oh if you don't like sports like by the way tie about want to talk about a great story christian leitner the christian leitner story in the thirty for thirty amazing absolutely amazing and tells a very Not similar star. But you know again. There's so many of these really powerful stories. I can't remember the one so experimental like the one where it's all the day. The day of the oj bronco. That's one the best. June since one thousand nine hundred. That's date it's it's basically a pivotal and by the way in nineteen eighty-four. There's like a day of all of these major things happening in every major sports nicholas playoff championships like The world was going on while doc. It's all just done like talking heads on the news. Like all through archival footage. It's beautiful. I must a big fan of the to pablo's that's the one about. Oh yeah The on yeah. Yeah it's all about like the colombian player who was raised up making keeping his team kind of funded in part because pablo escobar will helped local soccer teams to burnish. His image is like a robin hood. but then also then that this pablo coming to america and a scoring own-goal on himself against the united states and go home getting murdered. it is. that's a terrific i. it's amazing. And i know amy probably love the best of enemies right which lakers and celtics. When like there's so many great ones. I think that this.

"I think you can handle that. I think audiences can handle that The story is completely surprising. Basketball shots a free throw one of the most boring things in all of basketball takes on an importance here. And just the way you're talking about where you're thinking about. Not just the score the game but what that shot will mean to the kids entire family. This movie has twists and turns in it that you wouldn't believe in a fiction film. It keeps you absolutely on the edge of your right. You're living with these families and their families having said that. Now let's take a look at my number two pick which is quentin tarantino's paul. Win a few months later. it doesn't get that oscar. Now they're like oh fuck this in the user their bandwidth to talk about it in a wind up like exposing how the oscar nomination process works for the documentary film-makers to everybody in a way that gets changes. I mean this is us or them talking about it. The best thing to come out of the snubbing is the media is going to spend more time now promoting hoop dreams which opened wider last week. It's now in more than two hundred and fifty feet across the country. You take a look. You'll be glad you know gene. I was talking to barbara coppel. Who won two academy awards rate documentary filmmaker and she said. This committee is in love with talking heads and stock footage. And that's exactly what they are. These old fashioned television oriented films with battleships bombing the beaches at normandy while some deep voice says how many troops went ashore. They are not interested in living breathing documentaries. And there's another problem and that is the committee that picks these documentaries. Volunteers mostly retired people. Not most of them documentary at all but they have four hours free two nights a week for eleven weeks to see sixty four documentaries almost one hundred hours of documentaries and so they go night after night and they get to know each other and they chat and they arrive and they leave and until this year. They had a chairman this year. The woman who was the chairman stepped aside for your because she had a film that was in the running. What do you know they nominated it. It's the stockholm syndrome. They're so friendly. That of course they wanted to do her a favor and every year if you go back year after year and look at the nominees you'll find one or two nominees that are fishy because people that manipulate. The committee are trying to get their pictures nominated. This situation stinks. It's rotten and until the academy reforms that they have shame on their name. I mean this idea that. Like the documentary. Nominations were ruled by a bunch of people who weren't documentary filmmakers in. We're sitting in a room and flashing flashlights at the screen. When they thought a movie was boring and if it was boring and they would turn it off and ebert finding out that they turned off hoop dreams after twenty minutes because people are just like. Nah it's wild wild to me and then uncovering this bigger conspiracy. I mean the idea that this that the academy awards gaming. The system to help elevate one of their own they. Were you know doing this..

"P. l. o. t. o. n. dot com. I think you know we're having this conversation and there's so much to unpack your but i think what's really important to kind of talk about. Is the legacy of this film. What this film does that. I think pushes documentary forward. How it's received how it how it kind of shines a light which is kind of an interesting thing. Then you'll see why in a second on the academy awards and how they judge documentary films because what you said earlier was you know siskel and ebert chicago guys who i think. There's a big connection with chicago in basketball. This is a chicago story. And i think that they really elevate this this movie and let's talk a little bit about this controversy that goes on about this film. Yeah it turns into a scandal. I mean in a way. I think there's a parallel between this film and its subjects. Here's a little film winds up like being at sundance making a huge lash like suddenly all of a sudden being like the toast of the town. Everybody i mean film. Distributors are recruiting them. Right like sign with us with us. We'll give you this money like they become darlings at sundance overnight. Like they're fourteen year olds basically in the world of cinema. Like making this splash. Feeling a little bit overwhelmed. Getting calls from madonna's like person asking if she can have a print like having people write stories about how this film is gonna make a million dollars and then having to talk to the families of these kids about it and being like we're actually making a million dollars. But every all of this hype. It's like a hype cycle that they're in their ten us to the oscars where it's not just like oh of course hoop dreams is going to get a doctor. It's also maybe going to get a best picture on like that's where they're shooting like best picture. Nominee for a documentary is like making it in the nba documentary. And you know just to kind of just under what you're saying like when it does premiere at sundance it is a hit. The audience favourite like in an audience. Favourite is a very interesting term because i think the audience favourite and obviously this change but the audience favourite is saying this is the one that will get mainstream success to a certain degree right like it's going to be and always wins like best picture. Usually like the best picture nominee like. These awards are major. And so that idea like it's coming. It's also at a time. Like i said to you in the beginning of ninety four so we have you know pulp. Fiction is out like this is a a weekend wild right so you know so. I guess going to put this in perspective but yet It doesn't it doesn't it doesn't yet this you know not only is it. Not a best picture. Nominee doesn't get a best documentary Which census go on the warpath just hear them rant about it. Because what i like about subscriber is not only were they there to champion the film which they did they both put it as their number one film of the year it. This is them agreeing right now on their show. Roger this is also my choice as the best film of nineteen ninety-four. It's the best picture that i saw. It has the greatest reach of any film. it when you this is an eight year project by these three filmmakers. If i've heard people say oh it's three hours well. These guys can spend eight years out of their lives. You think you can spend an hour more than you spend on. Let's say seeing richie rich..

"You know what matters is what matters is them you know. And you're like. I hope you do come back. But like putting that pressure on a kid to decide whether or not he's going to let you down. That's the situation that paint put him in. Like i really wanna get to state. We can get down state if you're here. Are you ready. Are you going to do it. like that. manipulation of making him perhaps injure himself forever because of that you know. Yeah because he doesn't care he doesn't care about the player he cares about his team. Yeah like that's it. That's it and it's crazy. Because like when the filmmakers hoop dreams showed coach ping the phil when they showed him a cut their of course like really nervous about it because they know how he comes across he came across how he was and they were sitting there like really freaked out and coach ping was not happy And later on sues them for thirty thousand dollars in his lake. Yeah like you really portrayed Our school in a negative way. And i feel like you really misled us. I thought this is going to be mad at education. And i don't feel like it's true in the documentaries like this is how it happened like this is how it happened and we stand by it and they settled the case but they only sold it on terms. They thought were comfortable. They didn't give coach any money but they said a scholarship at saint jo's and they set up an equal scholarship at marshall. Because they're like we're not going to give this private school more money than the public school gates. You know. this is all bs. But like i mean you're ping you did this stuff like you have this horrible confrontation. I think at the end of quietly agonizing where he's trying to convince william that like he'll be grateful for the way that he treated him run ins and runs me a time. Amy seventy five stairs see. You should have been happy and enthusiastic about doing your punishment. But someday you're gonna learn that Everything that was done was for your benefit so that you can come back for years from now and say coach. You write everything that happened at saint jo's helped me a lot and as a result i got a degree. That's what i'm hoping for into communication so.

"Yeah at least. At least it becomes a question of finding your story through chiseling and editing and figuring out what you can include a cutting it down from a nine hour version to a six hour version to seeing like a three hour version that i think even the documentaries when they the for some odd like we lost everything we loved. And i hate it like. It's not the six hour version and yet to us. Being able to come into it. We see the full world in a way documentary editing. I just think his lutely fascinating. And so s- oh hard but to the to the what you're saying about like the aesthetics of it. I admire that when you have music that comes in in this film. It's not like that. Donald don ito. There's a lot of excitement. Is actually because i'm like your music is dumb. You're making me angry like you can't do this music like it's not this dramatic chill here. They're like dramatic stuff is happening but in the background. It's this mellow kind of breezy jazz newly saxophone. That's like what's up. Or i mean of course like the openings which is just this is our best opening right flat out. It's so good. Let's one hundred percent. Yeah that was has that we have had nothing but stinkers with opening songs will many series. Bless you the hoop dreams anthem. I fell rallied. No i think there's something very pbs about this documentary. And i found it to be very refreshing. Not to look through. Those is but i think what is so amazing about a good dock and we haven't talked about docs yet on the show. Is this nineteen ninety. Four and everything about this is true this day. it doesn't feel dated. It doesn't i mean yes. There are techniques and looks and may be music and styles but the story is incredibly. Like i feel like it just feels alive to me and i think it's a live on two levels one the idea of ike achieving your dream and how hard it is to achieve that dream and a competitive space but.

"Interesting getting into this movie because we are living. I think in many respects in the golden age of docs net flicks netflix. I think in many respects really helped documentary film culture because it put it out there in effect. Everyone's like did you watch this one and there's it's a must see must see tv for docs right. See the crazy colt one. Did you see the cunanan. Did you see an hbo has always been at the forefront of that. I i wonder if podcast to are helping his podcast especially all the crime stabby ladies. They're like let me tell you. This true story has been awakened interest for like the truth is always crazier than fiction. Step further and say it all begins at dateline with the To catch a predator like we want we want to see you know real people being weird and you know committing crimes. I remember as a kid watching. I mean it's not a documentary but it is the same idea like the idea that you are watching a wife or husband. Hire a contract killer to kill them and then again. It's all this you know. you know. white shirt tucked into very pressed. Blue jeans over reporter talking about the crimes of american families Yeah oh i love it and all the say that we've come a very long way from the sixty minutes hidden camera to these much better produced beautiful looking documentaries and and on first glance and looking at hoop dreams here. Oh wow this is what docs look like. You know back in nineteen ninety four which is not that long ago. But what a difference i mean it looks like a handicap. It looks down and dirty. You know and the maizels. Obviously charlotte this book. I think i've forgotten how plane docks were right because now it is these beautiful shots and colors and you have amazing deep it just. There's something about this movie that it almost feels like you're watching a home video. It's scruffy in. This feels like a home video too and it is. It is in a way like a story about a maybe documentary Sx even evolving as a film goes on. You know you have these filmmakers. Were like we wanna make a story about kids and basketball and we don't have a ton of money and we have these little cameras. And i guess we'll get like a week with these kids in the week they get with them turns into another week. The next year turns into a gigantic grant to actually make a whole film and start shooting for real so even in the years that we're seeing it's not so much that the camera gets like noticeably. Better because thank god. They kept against an aesthetic but documentaries in the muscle behind them as growing as they're making the film itself..

"Currently we're in our true-life sports mini series series and today is the listener. Pick and i have to say amy. We talked about this last week. It's an odd choice because we've been doing scripted films. And for the very first time this show is doing a dock we're doing hoop dreams and it was very unexpected that this one shot to the top of the list reality baby i i was like oh man i was kind of hoping tiny pull out or moneyball and then i thought actually. How genius is this. All we've been talking about this. Entire series is the interplay between reality lie in life and making drama out of real life. And what you have to change a lot of these movies what they decided. They had to change to make a movie more dramatic and now here. We just have a state of shock. That is as dramatic if not perhaps more than everything we've covered in this film. What if reality at the end of the day wins over hollywood. Yeah well. I think the reason why we are so into sports films in general is because there's a sense that anything can happen in sports right a major comeback a loss you know the underdog can rise and i just was watching clipper game last night and within the last two minutes they came back from an eleven point deficit and it was so exciting to kind of be in that moment and and i do feel like that is what brings us in this movie today. I i'm so excited. Talk about it. And i can't believe i missed it. This came out like Right after i left or right. When i was in high school and i never saw. Did you see it. Have you seen it before today. I missed it to boob wilder hearing to me because when you're a critic who dreams is one of those films as paramount about what a good credit can do and how a good critic can be responsible positive influence on a life. We'll be talking a lot. I think in this episode about roger ebert and gene siskel and how they made hoop dreams come into existence and become at its highest point. The highest grossing documents ever made at that time Enjoy all critics are like hoping to be that kind of critic who falls in love with a hoop dreams in takes young filmmakers and pushes them forward so this one was always been largely my memory. I didn't realize i'd never seen it. Which is insane. Whoop same like i knew this film. I knew it was great. I just never brought myself to watch it. And i just want to circle back and i know we'll talk about it in the podcast. But roger ebert once again championing A unique voice An underrepresented voice. And i love that. I mean we talked about in eve's bayou like this idea of really trusting someone to introduce you to something and i think that we we've lost a little bit of that. I think you know we. We live in our own bubbles. And we know it's coming out and we'll read our own things and i love that idea. That and i hope that we are still open to being influenced you know besides our friends telling us what they just watch the net flicks that we go out and read a cover story. And i think you've been definitely that's part of your career to. I would imagine like you see something. You see a trend. You've chase it. i'd like to..

"He would crush it. Yeah the the the funny part about taxes. I feel like they could be good. If the boosters cared about it right they're like okay like put some resources in basketball and the issues been the. The football team hasn't been where they wanna be in. That's one a also another caveat. I don't know what i'm talking about. But i like to talk about it because the coaching carousel like the coaching drama around college basketball is one of the more. It's the most intriguing thing for me for the most part because players you know players come and go The coaches is that you know. They're the ones trying to do their own thing. I make it sound like there's some sort of like vine star. Another coach is trying to do their own thing. Watch a bunch of cool career in coaching..

"Hey i'm caitlyn ash. A producer of the uncertain. Our podcast from marketplace season is all about this thing we used to call employment. We talk about what happened to it and why it matters on this week's episode. We dive back in history to see to look at a tragedy with lasting impact. What did you see when you came down from people all bodies. Oh terrible. we've got sick. It changed how people saw. Workers rights made a terrible impression on the people in the state of nia shouldn't have been and we were sorry. Cook on behalf culpa. Listen subscribe to the uncertain. Our wherever you get your podcasts for marketplace's econ extra credit or watching one documentary film a month here in the march madness month. It's about wealth and poverty and basketball. We're watching hoop dreams. The transformative film from nineteen ninety-four documenting the lives of to high school basketball players from economically struggling families in chicago as they work toward but not to an nba career. The film is heartbreaking inspirational and instructive. Joining us from san antonio is one of the stars of that film william gates now forty-nine he didn't play in the nba but he got a scholarship. That helped him get through marquette university. Mr gates welcome pleasure to you guys this morning. Do you connect the work. You did with basketball with the fact that you've got your college degree. Yes and no such a crazy dynamic. And let's be frank when you talk about the kids. That need scholarships oftentimes is the kids that are in african american lower income communities and to get us some of these top quality universities. The money is exceptional. So it's it's yes. Sports has prepared me to the place. I'm at now in life. But i will also say yes. The education i received allow me to walk through many many doors. That can say if it hadn't have been for sports and had not schools that have gone to. They could possibly be different in my life. Now we're talking about support systems. You raise this issue for athletes. I saw that. You advocated an interesting idea of colleges may be giving a lump sum payment. Maybe a hundred grand or something at graduation for college basketball players who play and get their degree. How do you see that. How might that work i. The premise was always built around this as a student athlete. We don't get an opportunity to be quote unquote regular students. So there is no intern. Schiff said work in these kinds of jobs. You know even our summers. It's still centered around basketball. But everybody's not going to make it to the nba or whatever it may be but if you got athletes who every year and this is just ensuring that they get their degree as well. You put twenty five thousand dollars every into an interest. Earning account so by the time they graduate. They have some resources i mean. Obviously you've now stated where you stand on this issue of. Should we pay college athletes. Because it's a would be a way of paying people but it would be connected to that achievement of getting the degree absolutely and even just speaking on panties athletes sure. We should pay them. We have to get past thinking that these kids. They don't deserve it. They do deserve this too. Much money ten. Tammy had at three hundred plus the visual schools. There's not enough money to pay college athletes even a bigger stipend to buy socks and underwear and you know audio order it. There's a lot of athletes still out there. Trying to figure out the day to day necessities so it it. It seemed like it has a long way to go but the reality is the powers that can make change. Just need to say yes. William gates pastor for many years in chicago and now in texas and now coaches basketball for the amateur athletic union. Thank you so much for having me.

You know film, school and Education, the most important thing I take away from it is like building a community and finding like minded people who love films and you kind of carry on that love after you graduated in your work together on your on your feature, your future projects and and I mean obviously the education is important, but I think the relationships you take away from it or more important now. Is there I mean I know? For those who see the documentary, they know kind of what influence you partially to really loving a certain aspect of Bruce Lee, but is there any other driving forces that really kind of? Propelled you where you are today whether it's a filmmaker or an actor or a movie itself. I remember seeing a hoop dreams when I was pretty young. I was about ten or eleven, and it was just A. He's the first time I really saw documentary like a feature length documentary, and it's such an epic story right also an intimate at the same time, and I think it's informing me of like the type of story said I'm interested in the type of storytelling I'm interested in and also kind of the power of sports in the drama of Sports, and and how you can use sports as a way to talk about bigger issues in society, and so I think that film definitely played a role in how I. How I became a documentary filmmaker and I mean it's not a directly to to be water I. think he can maybe see. Some of the piano correlation. Oh absolutely, absolutely and you know. You've done some really creative and really great projects, but we documentary like be water that you're connected. Do personally that you? Again for anyone that has seen it. For the thirtieth. The world seated at this point. You know you really have a fondness in a your linked emotionally to the person you're you're you're making the documentary on become something else at that point? Right because it's still such a beautiful work of art, but because of your connection because of the way Bruce Lee moved you. Does. It become something else at that point bow. In your for me when I'm making it film. Tired of want to infuse my own voice in the not literally. You don't hear me speaking as a narrator anything like that, but I think that films at I'm kind of drawn to are the ones that feel personal and honest and authentic, and you can really feel the directors hand. Especially in a film, we were talking about such an icon that maybe anyone else could have done a certain style of Bruce. Lee Fill of documentary about Bruce. Lee But I wanted to make sure that this felt like my film, and by kind of going deep into my roots my parents Vietnamese refugees. They left Vietnam on a boat. We're living in Hong Kong refugee camp for for six months and then. Went over to America the very similar story to Bruce's in terms of coming to America. And not having connections, not really having any money, and that was sort of the Bruce Lee that I felt like I didn't know too much. About Bruce Lee as the immigrant American as Asian, American as the other American. So, I tried to infuse like what lessons I learned from my parents, and for my own upbringing as a child of immigrants and use that to make the films feel personal and have that touch point in a way. So yeah that was that was always the intention and I hope people. Felt that kind of personal filmmaking style. Even though we're talking about an icon like briefly. Yeah, I can't even imagine what it's like. Because you talk very very early in a documentary about you know, it's the very first time you recognize yourself. Somebody on screen. That isn't stereotypical or lacking the respect. They deserve I. Mean I can't believe I mean it. Had to be an. You've answered this such a passion project just because of the effect man had on you and millions of others as well. Yeah I mean I could say that. I was in like one of those huge Bruce Lee fans at went out and collected everything and. Watched every single movie ten times over, but as a symbol, and as an icon for representation for kind of hero, and fighting for the underdog, definitely left a mark on me and again it was just trying to unpack that that that iconography that mythology that I felt. Everyone knew, but they didn't know the person, and and that being said I agree responsibility, obviously telling the story of someone like Bruce Lee but I started to think of it more as a privilege that I'm privileged to have the opportunity to tell lead story into. You know mess it up in many ways and I once. I understood it more as a privilege recognized. It made it less of a daunting task I

"Tom on on Hugh Jackson's podcast you in me as an aside decide to want us to talk about baseball managers. All right. So here it is playing for you. Have to be reactive. And that's the job of the chef de that reactive person to figure out. Who's got string some four days at that moment. Speaking of baseball managers, why do they wear uniforms. That's coming. It's silly think about this. How silly is that I mean football. Know the feeling. No. Hosa tatty whereas tattered sweatshirt hoodie with a logo on. But no baseball this ball could convention coach set their bench, which like, you know, warm-ups on. No doesn't happen. Why baseball? That's a really good. I don't feel silicone. Crazy. Silly crazy. Yeah. Silly crazy. Interesting not recycling George Carlin material there, Tom is. But. So triggering what? Yeah. It is silly. That a baseball manager puts on a uniform he doesn't need to wear and I still feeling like, Hugh where I come canceling. Tony. Yes. That is exactly. Yeah. Okay. Sure. How's that has the podcast, generally? I'm sure anyone who's listening to this podcast. You're top chef fan you like food. You want to hear about these people? These are people were talking about who are often on top. Chef and Tom's in every single episode. Hugh is frequently appearing on on township good podcast first. All you look at the title of that episode, Tom Kalicki heats up leftovers. So I'm gonna after shot for our wig. No, you actually stirs. The pot new podcast only one episode so far we said what he did. She came to New York at fourteen I think twelve or fourteen conversations with various people just talking about food. It's not about cooking so much about the industry about people's backgrounds. What interests them still about what they're doing? It. Just sounds like he's going to have some conversations with people about food. If you like that sort of thing seems like it's going to be a really good podcast. I learned a lot about what Tom starts just worry about judging on top chef, for example, from this particular podcast. I am talking about what I said earlier. And then just generally their thoughts about the industry as a whole about the state of how people become chefs in the opportunities that are there. So I thought it really just a great conversation easy podcast. Listen to I definitely subscribed. And am looking forward to hearing one.

"I think yeah, I'm looking at the picture now Antonio bolted up, and it looks pretty good. I feel like a specially for a burger burgers or messy to begin with. But when you're putting a lot on top of the burger and your stuffing, the burger itself to not have a bun to soak all that up and also to serve as a means to easily eat the thing. And also if you're talking about this as arena food, I feel like eating what he made in an arena situation would be really difficult. It'd be a real challenge. So I was I was ultimately those are my initial thoughts. And then the fact that he has as much success as he does in this competition where there's a moment where I really do think you're going into into judge stable on your thinking, it's either Justin or Eric one of those guys is going to win in for Justin to get that far into do that. Well, without the the bun is a vehicle means that what he made was remarkably good, right? So love to eat it. I you know, what I've said bef-. I feel like I said on top chef podcast before or at least on a podcast before. I think that burgers are one of the most overrated food items is I think it's very easy to just like get a bad to mediocre burger. But everybody seems to love them like people will put I love burgers like my favorite food. And I've just I've never really understood because I've encountered so many mediocre burgers. I joined burgers quite a bit lately. And look pretty good. Of course, the whole Burs to change the tone of your voice to a burger tone shift at Lambert or last night that was quite tasty not gonna lie. Nice was very good tone a little bit of ephemeral slauson Kurtz out, but it was very good Lamborghini and had a great abundance like nicely kind of crusty Portuguese bun quality to it as 'great. The that's one of the things I think people like about burgers is there. Just a good canvas that she can do a lot of different flavor profiles. You can do a lot of different seasoning. You can do a lot of different mixes. You can do. You have the bud element. You can change out. You can do the topics and change it up because when you talking about like, the pizza quesion and people are like, what's the most important bread, the sausage cheese and everybody is going to have a different answer. My answer is all three are equally important. These are even if it's like the lack of sauce that can be a crucial thing like sure making a white pizza or you're making a clam pizza. It's not going to have red sauce. Money money pizza. That's right. The amount of cheese. You don't want it over amount. The interplay all of that very very crucial. And I think it's very similar with with the burger. But I just never think about it without a bun. I think the quality of the meat obviously instrumental, and if you have like a bad quality of meat to your burger, you can have the tastiest bun in the world. And I think that your burger is destroyed, but I think that many delicious burgers, some of the most delicious, burgers I've ever have just been on like Martin's potato roll, right? Like, right. Like a very simple easy like very cheap burger role hamburger. But and those burgers are remarkably tasty. So I think that the lack of the bun here really does help to reinforce the narrative for me when it comes to the burger less about the toppings less about the bun, really. What's your, Patty? What's your Patty situation interest in another leftovers? Call. Speaking of topics though, the garden played in this episode. We saw them gardening again finally check off guard, and man, I'm telling you. So you think it's going to come back in this season. I think that it'd be cool. I mean, I don't know this season has with so many times for me like it. There's there's been a lot that I have just not enjoyed about this season. But if this season is going to suddenly start firing on all cylinders what they will have done is. They will have introduced this concept of the garden very early on in the season..

"Breaking into Fort Knox is kind of fun. I liked it more in. I was going to make an awesome powers joke. But I can't remember who the actual Goldmember is Austin powers goldfinger. Yes is the guy who broke into Fort Knox in James the joke is is bungled much like the way Kelsey says Bouillon sugar and awful. Yeah. Vote fits Arna waffles part of the challenge. Cute. It's fine. Made ROY kind of fun opening to the quickfire. But ultimately really goes nowhere. I think to blow this out for a future season to do like a legitimate escape room as part of your quickfire would be hysterical. So that was my thinking is how can you check? They change this or how could they adapt this challenge if we if we were to see it, again, one of the things you have an escape rooms, of course, as you solve some puzzle and an escape room, which sometimes opens a door that leads you to an annex in the room. Yeah. But you need to solve other public realized there was a whole other room in a room or a door within a closet or something like that. So I thought that could be part of it. But the other thing I thought is so it was a group challenge. I think that's a big part of why they solved it so quickly which escape rooms are very communal, and you have to work together to solve these things. That is a huge reason why I think of individuals chefs may have struggled more with it than others. I wonder if you could have added a second layer to this which is you could have as an individual taking. To additional clues. That would have given you access to more spices. Yeah. Or I was also more time. If there was a way to like gum divide them into teams. I know we're at and suggested that we're at odd numbers right now with seven so that would be a little bit of a challenge. Unless one person was like drew the short knife in your unluckily on your own like imagine any money having to be forced to sneak his way out of nece, Gabe room, just by himself. I think he could do it. I don't like his odds. To be quite honest here. I'm so again, I think it was a cute idea. I think it was all just a little bit forgettable, especially with the grand or context of the episode of Ryan into. Yeah. Kurt pointed out as well. It's a good idea to pair people may be in teams, for example. But that also goes against the escape in communal thing occurred, also pointed out that the more twists and stuff you put into this the more it becomes about like the escape room aspect. Yeah. And the less it becomes about the food in this after all his top chef. So we're probably more interested in what they're going to do with the food, then the escape room aspect. I dunno. I mean, I feel like I feel like for future season. They could they could literally call up Kurt Clark, and Kirk Clark would be able to design and yes, credible room food focused. Jaylen agree completely. It would involve blackberries. There would be no Hickam on in fennel. No foul. Yeah. It'd be really good. But I I think you're right. I think Kurt could pull that off Kurt Kurt made me laugh because he he pointed out speaking of the way. Heard games four number code, right? Yeah. So all you have to really do is salt three riddles and brute force your way through the other nine numbers of whatever the fourth one was that you missed right? But he said, no take like no time at all. Right. Yeah. Driveway. If you four three five seven, and you didn't know the five four three one seven four three two seven, right? Kurt said. He would slap anyone try to escape breeze. So pure. I'm god. No, no. You must solve the problems. The clues we had the first clue this ingredient shares its name with the federal law enforcement agency responsible for protecting the US treasuries. Gold bullion at Fort Knox. Did you know that meant was a federal law enforcement agency. That's confusing..
