"huffman" Discussed on The New Yorker: Poetry

"Then they read a poem of their own that's been published in the magazine. Today, my guest is sciences. Winner of the 2022 Pulitzer Prize for poetry. And the same year as national book Critics' Circle award for her collection, Frank sonnets. Her honor is also include a Guggenheim fellowship and a 2021 John up Jack award for the American academy of arts and letters. Diane, welcome. Thank you. Thanks so much for having me. So the first poem you've selected to read is owed by Jane Huffman. Tell us what was it about this poem that caught your eye as you're looking through the archive? I got hooked on the archive to be honest. And seeing how The New Yorker has changed through the years in its taste around poetry. And James poem interested me in its circularity and how I couldn't decide if it's final statement was a narrative one or a formal one if it was really in our poetic using a narrative in an allegorical way or vice versa. And probably both because she's just that smart. Well, why don't we listen to the poem? This dance is reading owed by Jane Huffman. Andrea taught me to ride side saddle. I rode in small and dizzying circles around her. I rode around her in small and dizzying circles. Past the mirror and passed the mirror where one summer she was reared off by a stallion attacking his own flaring reflection. One summer she was reared off, or almost. I rode into the acres of our sunflowers. In the acres, the fields, I overindulged in beauty. In the fields, I rode. Andrea, leaned on a rail, her body a rail. Andrea leaned on the shadow of a rail. My shadow rode around her. The small bells of my intuition. She rang the small bells of the saddle. I was small and dizzying. I was dizzy. I rode in small and dizzying circles. Andrea taught me to ride, no stirrups. Nothing suspending my body, but intuition. The small and dizzying circles of my body. My intuition rode around me in small and dizzying circles. Her shadow, writing, circles around me. I called her Andrea. That was owed by Jane Huffman, which was published in the August 20th, 2018 issue of The New Yorker. I love this poem and I love that you picked it because, as you said, it has a circularity. But it feels more like a spiraling up or is it spiraling down? I think there's this quality that is dizzying, of course. And that's what it says, which is one of the things I love that poetry can do so well. I was small and dizzying. I was dizzy. I rode in small and dizzying circles. And the difference between those, I think, is a world, right? And the difference between being in a state or being called in the state and being experiencing a state, I don't know. How do you think about that kind of type of dizzying and the circularity as you put it, but also these circles that the speakers going through? Yeah, in a way, I do think of it as an artist's poetic or a poem about poetry. Oh yeah. So one thing that really interests me in Jane's poetry and this poem in particular is how there's this interchange between what's happening in the form and the music and then what's happening in the plot itself. And there's a kind of obsessiveness in the language should that, as she masters, is a speaker masters the horse. She's also a sort of mastering the obsessiveness or finding its uses in the poem. So I think when she does things like, I was small and dizzying. I was dizzy. I rode in small and dizzying circles. She is trying out various approaches to the literal to the figurative to the conceptual and to the intuitive and how to get all of those running at the same time. That's interesting. Because I've been thinking about it. Almost as more the emotional aspects, maybe that's another adjective that comes to mind here because for me, it feels like a love poem. I mean, it's called O and I don't necessarily mean only romantic love, but I kind of poem of admiration and wonder, how did you take it that way? Did you see this oat? Is it an O2 language itself? Is it an ode to Andrea? Yeah, I wondered one of my questions about the poem is who are we owing? And she begins and ends Andrea taught me and then I called her Andrea so that's the first and last word. Andrea's a person, a presence, but also a word, you know? Well, and it feels like it also is a sound. I mean, I feel like the beginning is so R sounds. And circles around her past the mirror and past. Yes. A great little doubling there. And she was reared off or summer, flair. Is almost like an inversion of those words. It feels like an anagram of half of the words in the poem. It's also about reflections in all senses. Is it also telling us something about how memory works? Oh, interesting. Past the mirror and pass the mirror where when summer, she was reared or almost reared. And then we get down below, Andrea leaned on a rail and then her body a rail. Andrea leaned on the shadow of the rail. So you'd see things moving from sort of platinum to metaphor, and then this shadowing, which is, feels like the speaker internalizing whatever Andrea is. And then my shadow rode around her, the small bells of my intuition, so the actual bells and the sad, this is something I would love to be able to achieve. It's something I've been working on actually to move between the concrete memory and whatever this thing is that happens to memory. And for me, that's the highest achievement at this poem. Yeah. What is that thing? Tell me more about that. I don't know what the word is. If I knew, I would have mastered myself.

"huffman" Discussed on Opening Arguments

"It seems pretty clear though that destroying text messages almost certainly would rise to at least that level of gross negligence. And so if you're concerned about the willful elements, as we've talked about in connection with the J 6 committee more generally, this is an area where you have multiple different avenues, just sort of look at as this unfolds, how can we go about holding the folks responsible for deleting what is obviously crucial information? Well, if it comes to men's re, I mean, once again, I'm sorry I keep bringing this up. I don't know if it's directly analogous, but for the state of California, when you work for the government, I mean, you don't just delete texts. Just the fact that something was deleted, I think, to my mind, would be strong evidence of mens Rea, you know, it's not like, oh, I was just deleting them for storage. I was like, no, there's all these rules about what you delete and win and how. Yeah, that's exactly right and again. Remember, you know, Michael Flynn chanting lock her up. Hillary Clinton did not delete her emails from her time as Secretary of State. She moved them to a segregated server with the intention of preserving those records. So I wonder if we're missing some basics like what do you even think this was? Like my first thought was, oh, is this about the argument in the beast to the stupid SUV or whatever? Or is this about do we know what it's about? Could it be about on the day Trump trying to get someone to take him to the capitol and maybe there was an argument with Secret Service? I don't know. Do we know any for sure what it is? We do not other than all of these texts have the possibility to corroborate or disconfirm various stories about what happened. Everybody who was involved here at the highest levels is somebody who is either themselves under Secret Service protection or was interacting with someone under Secret Service protection. The president. So not only would there be a report of what happened in the beast and did the president, in fact, demand to be driven down to the capitol and try and seize the wheel and all of that. But all of the, and again, I'm looking backwards now. We're only missing January 5th and January 6th data as of right now. For example, on those days, but for example, certainly Secret Service data would confirm the activities at The White House on December 18th. That's the unhinged meeting. Right. Yeah, you got to let sippy Powell into the building. We saw it was poor Cassidy Hutchinson, who had to walk drunken Giuliani back to his car when you're talking about building an overall case. I would not expect to see smocking guns in the Secret Service text messages. What I would expect to see are in disa of reliability that confirm matching up to the rest of the testimony. Yeah. Well then, okay, another basic question that I guess I was kind of assuming and didn't know. Is this a new development? I know we're just hearing about it now, but like, do you think these texts were deleted recently or were deleted right after they happened, but we're only finding out like, hey, there's a gap recently because they're trying to look for certain thing. We just don't know. I think what we can reasonably infer is we know that at the same time that these hearings are taking place and the January 6th committee is downloading what it knows to the American public that it research and investigation remains ongoing up to the minute. We saw them turn around pat cipollone in a week, right? In three days. So I would suspect that the request has probably come pretty recently. But in terms of whether the destruction was recent or old, I think we don't know. And we just don't have the basis to figure that out. And I would point out, again, if you're skeptical, I see this every day. No one is ever really going to be held accountable. Again, think about why you would request Secret Service texts. If you want to pin everything on John eastman and Ken cheese bro, you do not need the Secret Service texts. You want that information for people around the president. So it at least tells you the January 6th committee is gathering information with respect to people around the president. And if you can't take that as a positive side, you're too cynical for this show. Bad cynicism. Well, I guess final question. I mean, are you looking, do you think they'll clarify tonight? We've already know. We're asking about the, you know, the end of a show that we haven't seen yet that other people have. But do you think do you think we'll get more info on this tonight? I think we will. You have seen now that Liz Cheney likes to drop bomb shows. Tune in to the end. After credits. Yeah. You want the after credits J 16. So I can see blocko. That's deep reference. There's all meme about like a guy who doesn't like marvel and he's like my favorite thing about watching all these marvel things is some guy comes on after the credits and says, yes, it is I blurt out and everybody cheers. The idea is like he has no idea who that. That was me for a long time. I think it's a great yeah, it's great, great reference. Here's hoping we get a little cameo. We'll walk on from tonight. And with that advice, that is, is that the perfect way to introduce acidic member of Congress? I think that's absolutely true. We try to do nothing to never coming back on our show again. Hello, operator. Give me the number for 9-1-1. It is my distinct pleasure to welcome onto the show to introduce congressman Jared Huffman, who represents the second district in California. He's a member of the congressional freethought caucus, the congressional progressive caucus, and he is here today to talk about newest bill that he has introduced. Congressman, pleasure to talk to you again, and thanks for coming on the show. And welcome to the show. Well, thanks. It's a pleasure to be with you and I look forward to a conversation about these health share ministry scams that we're all concerned about. Okay, good. We're on the same page on that. That's how you know you've been invited on to the show and we're all we're all like minded. So yeah, you have introduced and sponsored HR 8 three two four, which is the health share transparency act of 2022. Why don't you give our listeners an overview of what the legislation is meant to do to protect folks? Great. Well, thank you. So some of your listeners may have heard advertisements for these health sharing ministries. They're starting to pop up on SiriusXM radio. I've seen some slick commercials even on cable TV, CNN, other networks that are targeting people of faith generally evangelical Christians and promising them that there is a type of health coverage that is biblical that is religious and also will meet their needs and give them great health coverage. And so The Rain and in dollars and subscribers, they now enroll over 1.5 million people in these so called health share ministries, and it all, I guess, is very lucrative because these companies are growing businesses booming, their advertising on CNN. You just hope you don't actually get sick and need health coverage because that's where that's where it all breaks down. People using religion to make money I've never heard of that. Yeah. We did multi part expose it. You and I spoke when I gave the presentation in 2021 kind of outlining some of the problems behind these scam sharing ministries. I think you are correct to note that the advertising seems to have increased even more since then in terms of penetrating into the public consciousness. I know when we last spoke, they were advertised heavily on Christian radio programs, but not yet on CNN. I mean, they're sort of exploding into the mainstream. So what does this bill do?

"Hello and welcome to opening arguments. This is episode 615. I'm Thomas, that's Andrew Torres esquire. How are you doing? I am legitimately fantastic. Thomas, how are you? The same. I am also legit. What a day, Andrew, we got so much. We've got a congressman Jared Huffman from migrate state of California. His district is beautiful, by the way. I don't think I'm going to. You know, take the time to admire it with him because you know congressman, you only get like 5 seconds with him. But beautiful district. It's actually the biggest district in California. It covers a lot of the beautiful land up north. I'm excited to talk to congressman Jared Huffman for reasons that have nothing to do with what I just said, but also that's cool. But we're going to talk about Christian health share ministries because mister Torres went to Washington and helped lead to some actual change. I'm actually legislation. So excited to talk to him about that. Yeah. Me too. I can't wait. We're going to do a little bit of course the January 6th committee decided that their testimony was going to be in prime time Thursday evening. I think Liz Cheney specifically said, well, you know, that will teach those guys over at opening arguments. Should we ask congressman Huffman about that? We should ask him, hey, can you get them? I know you're not in that committee. Yeah, can you get them to schedule this around our show? No, that's okay. We're doing a switcheroo. You know, we try to be flexible here. We're doing this episode. Now, of course, as you're hearing it, but we're going to wait normally we do two in one day. We're going to wait for our second one until we've seen that hearing because we want to make sure there's nothing in there that we miss. You know, we want to make sure we get Andrew's take on it. So that's the other reason I'm so excited, Andrew, we get a prime time hearing. What's better than a prime time hearing on J says. A prime time hearing with documents? Oh, is that a teaser? Or are you just hoping I am just hoping. But I think we have good reason to hope, so. Well, I'll tell you what they don't have is some Secret Service texts. Yeah, that is true. First question of the day, Andrew, listener Thomas S asks, what in the world would the Secret Service? There's too many questions. How could this happen? I know we don't have many details now, but how could this happen? Could somebody get in trouble for this? Why do you think this happened? What is happening? Go ahead. Let me answer the parts that I can answer about that. So what I can't answer is what happened with this thing that doesn't exist. And why? We can draw inferences, right? I asked around on Twitter and to folks in the IT community and they have confirmed and I think it was a useful exercise. Because sometimes your common sense intuitions are not the case, are not backed up. And I basically said, what's the likelihood that every Secret Service text message from January 5th and 6th got destroyed with no backup just by crazy random happenstance. And pretty much everybody agrees that's zero. That there's something that happened here that is potentially nefarious. We're entering the maybe the cover up is worse than the crime phase and the crime was pretty damn bad. So that's the crime was real bad. It's one thing in Watergate when it was like, well, the crime was like, you know, broken a window. Look at the crime was trying to overthrow the government. Break into the capitol and try to steal the democracy. It's a bit, yeah, more serious crime. How did we agree with that? How do they even know I know this is probably basic question, but this comes up and discovery a lot too, where I sometimes wonder as a normie is a non lawyer. How do they even know that you're not giving them something? And I know with government, I have worked in government a different obviously, not the Secret Service, but I guess usually there's records of everything. There's backups of everything. And so I'm wondering how they knew that there should be texts, but they don't have enough of a backup or a whatever to have them somewhere. Let me tackle both parts of that first. Here's how, in a civil case, you come to understand that documents have been destroyed, right? That's called spoliation, or illegally with help. And that is, as you are piecing together your discovery, you see references to things in that discovery that would have been responsive that have not been produced to you. So for example, I serve a set of document requests. That's the most useful thing in written discovery. Give me your documents. And document request number 5 says give me all company records in your possession custody or control that refer or relate to the subject matter of this litigation. Please tell me you send them the meme that's all your documents are belong to us. That's how you request them. Not quite. But you know, and then they send over 34 emails. And we're like, we're suing you about a major acquisition. And you're telling us that the board never met nobody on the board of directors ever emailed somebody else on the board of directors about this $100 million purchase. And they're like, nope. And so then you go through those 84 documents or whatever. And you will see a line in there of something like and, you know, we've got next week's board meetings, right? And so then I write back an email to the other side that says, confirming that you understood a document request number 5 to include the production of all contemporaneous notes taken during any board meeting from the time period X to Y and then they say, oh yeah, no, we definitely did. And then I said, well, look, this document seems to indicate there were, in fact, such board meetings. So go back to your client and tell me why we don't have any documents and whether we're going to have to go to court for that. So context clues from what you do have. Also, I may have an email from presuming my client was on the outside. Director of operations sent my client an email. Well, I've got my client's copy of that email. And if you don't turn around and produce that email to me, it's very easy for me to go into court and go, well, we know this document at least exists. And so whatever they did to search their records did not produce this obviously responsive document make them go back and produce it again. And also, you can have, I mean, it's not quite a taint team, but you can have the court we saw this in the John eastman stuff, go back and say, yeah, and we're going to require you to pay for a third party to come in and review these, particularly electronic documents for responsiveness. So part one is you piece the puzzle together and lawyers are good at this. And this J 6 committee is good at piecing puzzles together for sure. That is absolutely right. So they have lots of pieces of evidence of folks who would potentially have been caught up in texts to the executive branch to know what ought to exist. And lots of different avenues to kind of figure out what that universe may contain. From an IT from a technical standpoint, the idea that these are documents, this is important for the second half for the criminal discussion. These are documents that belong to the public under the presidential. Again, I work for state of California, but if there was ever a probe, a lawsuit or whatever, they can get everything all our email, everything, like everything we did, our emails are browser history. I think there's some horror stories of, you know, like stuff that happened in the state of California when there was a lawsuit and these things were opened up. And that's even if we deleted them on our end of things, which is what is really a mystery to me. I'm not understanding this. And I'm not either. Other than to say folks have said, unless every physical device and backup was drilled through with a steel bit and then bathed in acid, there are ways to recover.

"Go if I wanted to grab pizza in Osaka? I have to say I wouldn't recommend doing pizza in Japan. Although if you really insist, I would say, ask Italians who live in Japan. And see where they go. So if you happen to know any Italians or maybe ask online, where would you go to get your pizza fix? But I would also argue maybe okonomiyaki is in a bit like a Japanese pizza, so maybe that could be your pizza there. There we go. Gotta kind of sometimes you gotta be flexible with your definition of pizza, right? Right. Right on. Well, like we talked about earlier. I mean, you've written for so many different magazines, like time and so many others, and you've been on some of the other shows. I even saw that you were on the show with Anthony Bourdain, right? So you know so much about travel. What's one of your best travel tips? Wow, yeah. It's hard to say because there are so many different circumstances. Best travel tip in general. So you mentioned Antony Bourdain, who I adore, and he has a great travel tip or simply a life tip that I think is really apt. And that is to try your best to arrive early. If you have a meeting, say at 6 p.m., try to be there 5 45, 5 50. And it saves a lot of headache. Having a flight or something, something can happen along the way. And I realize, you know, why stress and hope that the taxi can drive faster or do I need to run to the gate? I think you can relieve a lot of the major stresses and headaches of travel if you aim to allow enough time. So that's what I do my best to do. And if you happen to be there very early, then, well, another opportunity to people watch or maybe try another food or even just get some work done or something. So that would be my major travel tip. Yeah, I think I need to take a little bit out of advice because I'm notorious for showing up right on time. And things happen. Life happens, you know, and everything else, right? Well, often put in Japan that timeliness is very important. So it's considered rude if you do not show up on time. So if you're meeting people in Japan, do your best to get there, not fashionably late. All right, well, carmina, I really appreciate sharing all these amazing tips for Osaka. I've learned a lot. Can you tell the audience a little about who you are, what you do? And if somebody has more questions about Osaka, what's the best way for them to reach on social media? Absolutely. I'm always happy to chat with people online and answer any questions. I have been vlogging about Japan travel, subcultures and all that since 2007, my site is la carmina blog, la carmina dot com or just Google la carmina. And so I have a lot of resources from over the years, firsthand stories from Japanese travels, restaurants, temple stays, gothic nightlife, fetish parties, all the craziest stuff. So I encourage people to check it out if they want some resources on the more alternative and hidden side of Japan. And in addition to that, I've appeared on a number of travel TV shows, including for Food Network, travel channel, CNN, NBC, and others. And I freelance for a different publications, such as time, CNN. Yeah, architectural digests, photos and different travel magazines. So that's what I do.

"The carnitas tacos and pupusas at saritas or some of the newer ones. You get, you know, there's sorry, sorry for Filipino, sticky rice for Thai, just a whole myriad of delicious options there. That's really great. Now I know that there's some old school places that are in downtown, like one of them that I remember as a Phillips. Yeah, so Philips is the claims as the inventor of the French dip sandwich. And most likely the coals is another place downtown that claims to invent the French dip when somebody dropped the sandwich in the jus. But yeah, oops is definitely a classic and I love getting the lamb French dip there, which is great. They're mustard. What are some of the other favorites, the people shouldn't miss one of their visiting? Sure, yeah. I'd say, you know, if you are in Hollywood, you have to go to musso and Frank grill. It's the oldest restaurant in Hollywood. You'll probably recognize it. It's been featured in tons of movies and TV shows, mad men and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, but just a classic place, the waiters are amazing. And you got to get a martini there, which is fantastic. And steak and shops all the classics. Right on. Now one of the things that since we moved to Nashville, we don't get a lot of the same Mexican food that we had when we were in Southern California. And I know that LA obviously has a big Hispanic population. Where would we go for some awesome Mexican food? So one of the great things about LA is you have the opportunity to try such a wide variety of Mexican food, just from all different regions. So I think if you're going to want to oaxacan, try some excellent moles, which is in koreatown. Definitely recommend that. Taco trucks abound, and so many really great ones. But if you're going to go some of the classics, mariscos jalisco is excellent for ceviche and tacos de Camaro. Leo's is a sort of a staple for late night late night dining post bar for their Al pastor tacos. And then if you head over to boil heights, check out la azteca tortilla, which has these incredible burritos. They make you can see them making the flour tortillas right there. And they do a Chile relleno stuffed burrito, which is just amazing. Oh, that's so awesome. The people that make the tortillas right there in front of you, those gotta be the best, you know? Yeah, definitely. You know everything's fresh. You know, they're making it all with love and just put in their heart and soul into it. And you can just taste it in that flavor for sure. You really can, yeah. Well, Danny, I really appreciate you coming on the show and sharing all these tips for LA. I learned some new things, even though I lived in that area for all my life, but now it's time for the final countdown. If somebody only had time for one meal when they visited LA, where should they go and watch the I would say Grand Central market. So I would go there and just get a bunch of different things kind of do a little mix and match. I would say the wonton soup at China cafe. I would say the pursuers at sarita and pie at fat and flour. Oh, nice. I'm more of like, I just go to one spot and I'm gonna get what I want there. My wife is more of like, okay, I wanna try this from this place so I'm gonna try this from this place so it's like a perfect spot exactly for her. Definitely. Right on. So okay, so you lived in LA now for a few years and I'm sure you've had so many awesome experiences, especially when you're working on your books. What's one of the most memorable stories of being in LA? One of my favorites is I wrote about a group that's called the whisky and poetry salon is a fantastic group of cofounded by Kim johannesson and she basically what they do is they offer you whisky tasting and exchange for reading a poem. So you can bring a poem that you wrote or that someone else wrote and your favorite one. And for being brave and getting up there, you get a little liquid courage and get to learn about all these fantastic whiskys. So I really love have gone to a number of their events, but one of the times that I wrote about their anniversary event, I then went and met Kim and was talking with her and she said, you know, just thank you so much for writing about this. She said because of the article, we sold out and we actually added another night and had sold that out too. So I can take all the credit for anything. But for me, that was just really exciting to share this amazing organization and group with so many people and help them grow and introduce people to these hidden spots. So that's something I just always love to do. Yeah, that's amazing. I love it. I'm in the same way that as far as being a freelance writer and with my podcast and my blog, it's like you get to highlight certain micro businesses, essentially that people, whether it's a city or even a business within that city, a lot of people don't ever think about it or they might just drive right on by and next thing you know, like they miss out on something that's really amazing. And so the kudos to you for being able to bring that whole environment up to a lot of people and helping them expand and sell out that's fantastic. I love that. So speaking of good times and everything else and drinking, where's the happiest happy hour in LA? Well, I'd say, for me, it's our neighborhood spot. Little fatty little fatty is a great restaurant for Taiwanese and Chinese American food. It's fantastic. And they're adjoining bars called accomplice and they do a great happy hour there. It's Sunday through Thursdays, 5 to 6 p.m. and you can get everything from Taiwanese beer, wine and fantastic cocktails. I mean, it's really one of the best cocktail bars in the city along with some great small bites to get a rolls dumplings, fried chicken bow, things like that. Oh, that's awesome. Yeah, I'm definitely gonna hit that up when I come when I come out there, maybe we'll get the share a drink or something. That'd be great. So one of the things I always do whenever I travel is check out the local pizza and I know there's a couple of my spots that are kind of my favorites when I was in LA, but what's your favorite place for the pepperoni pizza in LA? Yeah, I mean pizza in LA has come I think a long way. I think people used to kind of write it off, but they were just some really incredible spots. One of my favorites is lodge bread, which is here in Culver City. They just do I mean, obviously they make bread and excellent, but they also do this fantastic pizza. So I think that would be that would be my recommendation. Right on. It's right around the corner for when I used to race to live up in LA. So that's pretty cool. Check out all that. Now, like I said, you wrote the book about LA, a lot of amazing tips, but you also traveled a lot of yourself as well. Which one of your best travel tips? Talk to locals, find out what they're up to and just be open to those new experiences and allow for unexpected detours. I think it's good to kind of have a game plan, but you gotta be flexible and ready to just, you know, stumble upon something new. Oh, absolutely. And that's why that's why I have this podcast because a lot of people aren't comfortable talking to somebody that they are just next to the bar or whatever. And so this way, at least they get to listen in on some of the conversations and get some of your best tips. Yeah. So Danny, I really appreciate you coming on the show and showing you all these amazing tips, even though I lived in the LA area of majority of my life, I learned a lot of new things and I can't wait to come back and check them all out. Can you tell the audience a little bit more about what you do and tell us a little bit about your books? Yeah, so I'm a writer, editor and photographer written for a number of different websites. And I'm also the managing editor for a site called cheapism dot com. And we cover budget friendly travel food, all sorts of fun things. And then I've written a couple of books about LA, so the first was 100 things to do in LA before you die. And then the most recent one that just came out is secret Los Angeles, a guide to the weird, wonderful and obscure. And all sorts of fun under the radar spots there. And then I'm working on the third book now, which is going to be scavenger LA and that will uncover send people.

"huffman" Discussed on We Travel There with Lee Huffman

"Danny, welcome to the show, buddy. Haley, thank you for having me. Today we're talking about Los Angeles and Los Angeles is a big place, but has a lot of really cool pockets of neighborhoods. I used to love living in that area and it's really good to have you on the show so that way I can kind of reminisce and hear about some of the places that I grew up going to. Absolutely, yeah. Happy to explore it again with you. And it's kind of one of the things that I love is sort of talking to people who grew up in LA and sort of introducing them or reintroducing them to places that they haven't been. For sure. So what's your connection to the city? So I moved out here just over about 12 years now. It came out as an actor and I wasn't alone. But I was doing film and TV and commercials, but then I started writing as a day job after a while I started writing for how it's like through a list and time out, ally weekly, just writing about restaurants and things to do around the city. And also started leading food tours with the company called 6 taste. So really got a chance to be on the ground and introducing people to great restaurants. That sort of really got me into the history of the city and just really loving all that has to offer. That's awesome. I'm sure I probably read some of your thrillist articles because I used to love going to that site when I was first working in LA and learning about all the cool places to go. When I was single and trying to meet women and go out and have fun with my friends, so I'm sure I'm sure I read a lot of your articles. Yeah. I occasionally Google things and find my own articles. That's pretty awesome when you do that. If you had to describe the city of LA or the people in just a couple words, how would you do that? Sure. I would say vibrant is probably one of the words that comes to mind. I've always felt sort of an error of electricity when I just from when I first moved out here, just sort of the excitement of possibility what's around the corner. So I think there's a really great energy about the place and people. For sure. I think that's one of the things about LA that opportunity that, like you said, you came out there for yourself to get into acting and everything else. It just pulls so many people from around the nation. And we're around the world even to LA and it just creates this awesome culture. And also mix. So I know from living there that the weather is normally pretty awesome year round. But for those listeners, that maybe don't know much about the weather in LA. Can you tell us a little bit about the weather and if somebody's planning a visit, when should they plan on coming? Yeah, like you say, it's definitely can't really complain about the weather too much here. And we do have the May gray and June gloom as they call it kind of overcast during those months. But I would say late spring and summer are definitely excellent times to be here. Probably late summer really fall attends to actually get pretty hot. But yeah, it's at least bringing in early to midsummer it would be great. For sure. Yeah. I remember that August and September were actually hotter than June and July. Right. Yeah, definitely. So, well, right, okay. And when people are planning their visit as far as like different festivals or different attractions that happen throughout the year, what type of activities happen throughout the year as far as they may be people want to plan that trip around? Part of it depends on kind of what you're wanting to explore. But I think definitely in the summertime there's so many great festivals to check out, particularly music festivals, you can go to the Hollywood Bowl or the Greek theater, some of these bigger outdoor venues, iconic venues, but there's also a lot of free concerts all over the city and how to our movie screenings, things like that. One of my favorites is the free jazz at lacma. So right in front of the museum, you just sit out there and enjoy some live jazz. So that's great. That's kind of a highlight, but if you're interested, there's the valley county fair is always fun, which happens in May. There's me say weekend little Tokyo in August. There's a lot of fun. And then, you know, in cooler weather, actually, as you get towards October, you've got the DIA de Los muertos festival or several of them happen all over the city and lots of haunted houses, things like that. So you get a different feel of the city then. Oh, for sure. And obviously people know about the roast parade that happens there on January 1st, over in Pasadena. That's like iconic. I remember growing up and you have to wake up early on January 1st and watch that all day. I think that was a lot of fun. Absolutely. The floats are incredible and there's ways too you can see the floats and it's usually like the day before. Day after there's a chance to check them out if you're not able to make it cracked down on the first there. No, for sure. And one of the things I loved doing when I was a little bit older in like, you know, early 20s or early 30s was going to sine spy over at the Hollywood forever cemetery. I could see in the movies. Yes. I love that. People thought it was a little weird that we're gonna go watch a movie in a cemetery. Is that cool? Is that okay to do? Right, yeah, yeah, usually the first question is are we going to be sitting on their graves? Are we sitting on the tombstones? No, no. Kind of dedicated space and yeah, that's a lot of fun and it's been amazing to see that grow over the years. And it's a huge huge audience now, but they do elaborate photo booths where they'll have just a huge set themed for the night of the movie. They've got DJs before and after it's a lot of fun. They actually do a off season series now during starts like late fall through the winter, but they take over some of the old movie palaces downtown. These beautiful ornate theaters they'll show classic films inside of those. So that's also a lot of fun. Oh, wow. Yeah, it's really evolved since the last time I went. I think I've last time I went before I even had kids, so it's been a decade or so, so that's really cool. They've continued to evolve and make it a better experience for everybody. That's awesome. Now, when people are planning their trip to come out to LA, obviously the biggest airport there is LAX. Do you recommend people flying in LAX or one of the other satellite airports? Yeah, I mean, LAX obviously is going to have the most opportunities for flights in and out for people. But I would say Hollywood Burbank airport is definitely a great one to look for it because that's going to be just a much smaller and feels like a small town airport. So that or Long Beach pretty much the best bets. I mean, if you're going to Disneyland, you might want to consider John Wayne airport down in Orange County because of a more accessible for that. But yeah, otherwise Burbank and Long Beach. Yeah, Ontario was also a pretty good option. Obviously, it's a little bit further out. I always remember they always had some good prices. But we used to live about three miles from Burbank airport. And so that was like our go to. You know, we hated going to LAX because we knew that you're going to be stuck in some of the traffic and it's like that big horseshoe design and everything else like that. It was kind of a pain. I understand that they're now in the process of building that new transportation center. So it's going to ease up some of that traffic, right? Yeah, hopefully, I think they're working to improve that. I mean, it's an iconic airport too. One of the fun things about flying in and out of LAX is actually seen the theme building, which is really cool arches. There used to be a restaurant up at the top of it there. And they're trying to work out something to revive it. But if you do fly in and out, that's definitely worth checking out. That would be awesome. For my experience, LA was like the known as the place to have a car. It's like very much a car culture. The joke used to be that the public transition would take you everywhere, you don't want to go, you know, or drop you off like a mile from where you need to go. Like with the Africa which landed as it goes close to the airport maybe it's a green line, and it stops literally like a mile from the LAX. So it was kind of a pain. But I understand that they've been building and expanding the public transportation. So that way you can actually go out to the beach now. You can go to a lot more places now that you used to be able to go. So do you recommend people getting a car or using.

Tulum, Mexico - New Home for the Digital Nomad?

"Won't places. I always loved the travel mexico. Amazing food amazing. People like so many fun things to do and so today. We're talking about a city. That from what i've heard it's primarily like a playground for the rich and famous. It's called to mexico. I've i've always wanted to learn about it and so it's awesome to be able to have you on the show. No i'm really excited about two may be the other side it to learn that you haven't heard as much about okay right on. So what's your connection to the city so during the whole time. I figured out that. I wanted to go and and move in and try somewhere different worker motley so we looked at places that we were able to really dive deeper into experience the culture but also. I'm a big nature guy and we want to be able to go to the beaches and go to snow taes and get out to the forest and stuff and and to really fit the bill for all of that. It has really everything you would want when you go to place vacation but also if you're looking to go longer term consistently have things to do day in day out and so like when you're working remotely obviously you know. I have a lot of friends. That are like kinda digital nomads. And everything else like that was the there are strong internet connection for you throughout your time while you're there or was it like setup for you'd be able to do that remote work i mean it's incredible out there to be completely honest. It's it's built for people that really want to go out there and actually start building a life out there. There's condos constantly popping up but for the most part restaurants on the beach cafes on the beach and then we had an airbnb that we were able to really improve the internet at and they're really focused on that stuff. You look at airbnb. You look at hotels. A lot of them will will actually include what their internet speed is to make. Sure that you're able to work remotely from there. It's definitely big priority for them. That's also even like when i travel. I'm always like working whether it's on the podcast on my blog or whatever so I love having that high speed internet. No it's crazy. Honestly like i had a lot of friends that would go down to beach clubs for the day and they sit there pay thirty bucks for a beach chair with food and drinks and they work from there the entire day. And it's a really cheap way to be able to get the internet. You need if you're going for a week and you just wanna be able to experience the culture and experience the environment while you're out there as well

You know that is no specific. Dying usually You know the bangalore's weather is very very pleasant because we are about a thousand meters abbassi level so that gives banglore You know an advantage in terms of weather art temperature remains between you know when i talk about fahrenheit it remains between six eighty eighty five throughout the year which is a very pleasant whether it's never cold over here and it's never too hot either. The only thing about bangla. Rather is the rain. It rains almost six to eight months a year but that rain is not very harmful. You know usually rains overnight. And it doesn't disrupt workflow but that rain brings lot of greenery lot of Drawn queasy to to the weather has a lot of trees A lot of gardens and also everything blows them when when when rain comes at banglar.

"huffman" Discussed on We Travel There with Lee Huffman

"Welcome to the show haley. Thanks for having me. It's a pleasure to be here today. We're talking about one of my favorite cities austin texas at the city. I almost moved to. I had not found the right place. Here in nashville. So it's a city i love. I love to go visit. And i can't wait to hear your your tips for the city. We'll thank you. Austin is my hometown now. I'll tell you right now. I'm talking to you today from new york. So if you hear some sirens in the background i apologize. I've lived in new york long enough. I have earned the right to call myself a new yorker. But i also one of a proud few nowadays who can claim to and born bread and buttered in the city of austin texas. I always try to get back there as often as i can. You know if. I was still there. I would probably be complaining nonstop about how much it has changed the traffic. This and that but living here really gives me perspective. And i can get back there and there's so much there that i can appreciate and i can recognize so much of the beauty. That is still there. Something that is kind of funny as i find whenever i get back there i kinda go back to all of the old places that i knew and remembered from when i was growing up. And you know. I've i've i've heard about new things but so when you talk to me you're really kind of getting the perspective of old austin. I'm in some ways. I'm i'm of a time capsule in that regard of that's fantastic. It's one of those things that those comforts for those memories that you have growing up there really kinda just bring you back home but we mentioned new york city all i can think about. Is that old pace picante commercial. All the cowboys hung hanging around the fire. You know in the old west and everything like that and somebody asked for some for some hot sauce or whatever. Somebody's taste somebody made in new york city. Get a rope. I know exactly what you're talking about. I'm bi cultural. I have earned the right to call myself a new yorker for whenever. I'm in the mood to do so. I will always be a native texan as well so i really do get to borrow the best of both worlds right on so Obviously like you mentioned you go back and forth between new york and austin on a regular basis. I'm sure you plan your trips around the weather and a different around different festivals. And things like that. So what time of year should people plan their visit when they when they're going to go to austin look. I always you know if i can. I try to go to austin in january february to get away from the cold new york city winters. That's just me in texas. They're really kind of two seasons their summer. Not summer you can. You can trust that the summer is going to be brutally hot but you know for the rest of the year is pretty mild and an enjoyable now. Of course the weather in texas. Turn on a dime. You can walk inside a building and you might walk in. And it's in the seventies outside you. Walk out fifteen minutes later. You nose down in the forties or fifties or something like that but for me. I like to go there in the winter as i just said But bluebonnets season in the spring. You know that's march april when you get to see all the beautiful wildflowers. That's a great time. I personally think that. October is one of the most beautiful months of the year. So you know october's a terrific time and you know. Obviously the heat during the summer is is pretty unbearable for most but some are has its benefits as well so it really just kind of depends on you know how much you can take that and i mean obviously the summer is hot. That's one thing. I'm gonna use to year in nashville as well. But at least you have like barton springs to be able to take a dip in the water and cool off and everything like that so if you only go there in the wintertime. You probably not gonna be able to do that absolutely now. We'll say. Barton springs is open year round and i have actually gone swimming in barton springs in the winter. Actually growing up. My dad. And i went there a few times when it was actually maybe in the thirties or forties outside and the thing about barton springs. If you've never been barton springs is one of the greatest swimming pools in the nation I tell anyone if you're going to austin that is an absolute must do. It is a natural artesian fed spring. Who'll in in the middle of the city. The temperature is constant constant. Sixty eight degrees so if you go there in the summer you jump in the water. It is a brutal shock. But it's also going to be sixty eight degrees in the wintertime as well. So if you go there and it's cold out you're going to see some steam rising and it could be pretty pleasant surprisingly so i've been there in the winter as well one of the great things about austin or just the incredible amount of outdoor activities. There are to do and the swimming activities aren't just limited to barton springs People often ask me what. I miss about austin one of the things that i missed. The most about austin is even as much as it's grown as bad as the traffic has gotten. If you know what you're doing you can still be the country within like fifteen to twenty minutes and there are so many other wonderful swimming holes that you can explore. I mean you could take a trip to austin just devoted to swimming one of my absolute favorites about a forty minute. Drive outside of town is kraus's e springs. That's in the town of spice. Would it is a beautiful swimming hole. there's a little waterfall there. It's an incredible verdant tranquil environment. You can do that. Also one of the most spectacular grottos in the country hamilton's pool which is even closer to austin that that really won't take you long to get to it all now because of cove and a few things this past year. They actually did. Close it to swimming. Hopefully next summer it'll be open for swimming again. But it really is one of the most magnificently beautiful places that you can see in this country. I saw buzzfeed list where they were mentioning these beautiful places in the country that you've never heard of hamilton school. Made the list. So you can do that. There's blue hole in wimberly. The barton creek greenbelt which is actually in the city of austin limits. Has some wonderful swimming spots as well. I mean if you like to swim. Awesome is the place to do. It really is well. That sounds like a lot of fun. Especially right now. It's summertime right now. We're recording this and it's nice and hot. I wanna go out there and take a dip in cool off for sure so when we're talking about also planning visit there are times when the city's super crowded with different festivals and there's also different other things that go on other events throughout the year. Is it a good idea to go there during south by south west or new limits. Absolute the hell out of town. South by south west comes through. You know people. When i tell people from austin they'll be like he'd south by southwest said. We always left town. Never south by south west was going on. I mean i'm old enough to remember when that thing started. It was a very small regional musical festival. Totally different deal. I mean the traffic. It is impossible to do anything and so i. I really recommend staying away from austin when when that's happening now. Acl i've done acl a few times and that can be a really great time but you know you have to be committed to doing acl and making acl. The main point of your visit if you're coming to town around then as well okay. That makes a lotta sense. What about like more lesser known festivals. Where the city doesn't get too crowded. it's more locals. We can still go enjoy yourself and still be able to see the rest of the city without being overwhelmed by hordes of tourists. Well you know a great local tradition is yours birthday. This thing started in nineteen sixty three. It is really hard to explain if you've never been there. I like to say it's kind of a miniature woodstock i mean. It is a hippie festival. We're talking drum circles. Basically a bunch of people invade. There's this park. Central austin close to the university called peace park. It's the last saturday in april and man. The people watching that you're going to see there is fantastic. They talk about. Keep austin weird. Well yours. Birthday is austin weirdness at it's finest so if you want a a true local texas experience that's something that i would Would maybe recommend considering getting a taste of right on that. I think that'd be a lotta fun but maybe some this wouldn't be super interested in that when you talk about things that you do on the summer one thing i was reading.

"Resorts that you want up in the Rocky Mountains. So fantastic. So let's assume that we're flying into the DIA once we arrived there and we want to get down to the downtown area of Denver, do we rent a car? Do we take public transportation. Like how do we get around from the airport to the city? And then once we arrived there. We have this wonderful new, a train. The A train terminal actually is inside the airport. So from the airport you can go to the A train and it will take you all the way through downtown and log. You all had the Central Station, which is our recently revitalized Trane Centre. And in the train Center. We have a brand new hotel and we have restaurants, and, and a beer hall and coffee shops, and, and we have bookstores. It's a great renovated. Building gorgeous architecture inside gorgeous, architecture outside and across the street is the Oxford Hotel, which is very classic of Denver renting, a car. All the major agencies are there, you don't need a car. If all she business is going to be in the city center, or if all your business is going to be, when you're going skiing because when you go to Aspen, there's a shuttle bus, that takes you around to all the different slopes, so young. You don't really need a car, unless you feel you want to be more in control of your time. We also have Uber and Lyft. We've got a good taxi system here. Everybody seems to respect a dog. Body else. There's plenty of off-campus long-term parking at the airport or short-term parking, right by the terminal. I usually take an Uber myself either because I figure by the time I would have the hassle parking and pay for parking. I just get dropped off and got picked up in a way, I go. So that's my way of flying in and out of the city and my car sits in my garage that makes life certainly so much easier. So, say we take, you know, the A train into downtown and things of that nature from there were should we plan on on staying as far as booking a hotel? Should we say that that downtown Porter or is there someplace else that we should look at? So, I would say that the downtown Corridor for your first time in Denver, is a great central place to be. There are things that you should be seeing due to the north, the West, the south east. If you go west and the lovely part about Denver is, if you see mountains, that's the West. So you always have your compass orientation and wage. 14000 foot mountains. The mountains are always visible. Unless it's raining. We hardly ever have cloud cover or small gear? So you can always tell what Foundation you are. So the city center has got the zoo. It's got the main library. It's got the art museum. It's got the Museum of Natural History. We have golf courses. We've got restaurants, we've got movie theaters. We have the Denver Center for the Arts has 5 theater. Venues everything. I'm a little in the round theater to. We have our own opera house. We have our own musical theater performance venue and we have just so many wonderful classic historic buildings to if you remember the Unsinkable Molly Brown. Well Molly Brown actually was a survivor of the sinking of the Titanic song. And her husband built the Brown Palace. And so, the Brown Palace Hotel is a triangular hotels in downtown. It's so classical you go in and it's beautifully. Carpeted wage, wonderful, brass, fixtures and Hardwoods everywhere. It actually has a tee time with atti service very much. Like, if you've ever been to Vancouver, but very classic bought a very elegant. We have a Four Seasons, we've got oh my gosh, you name it. We've got it. We have a JW Marriott. We have a four seasons of the high end at the low end. We have a lot of everything. So you could stay here in town, I would think easily. From $75 to $1,000 a night depending on your taste much of downtown is walkable. We do have a light rail system that will get you to different places. There are several communities that we have, we have the Denver Tech Center. We've got Cherry Creek. We have going North Palm. Lakewood all of these are communities that you can go and visit. I wouldn't think you'd do that on your first visit here. You probably want to just focus on downtown. Oh, we also have a wonderful basketball arena. We also have a fabulous, very it's new but it's classically. Designed baseball stadium. And of course you might have heard that we have Mile High Stadium for this Broncos, football team, you might have heard of. And so if you love sports, we've got it all. And if you're into amateur sports, we have a whole bunch of soccer fields and Tennis Courts, found a concert venue just to the north of downtown and we are also one of the few cities in the United States that has a professional rugby league in Glendale, which is just south of downtown. And so there is a Rugby field of the ladies where the national champions last year. The men were national champions two years. Or so, very good quality rugby. If you're into that sport, hasn't got the same traction As baseball or football yet, but you know, those that are into rugby realize, just the bumps on your shins are Badges of Honor earlier. You mentioned that your friend actually recommend, you come out probably seeing that sound like it was like wintertime and from understand like, Denver does not have as bad of a winter as you might suspect, right? I guess all the snow is primarily up in the mountains and based on the elevation of Denver and just the conditions, they may get a little chilly but it's not your three feet of snow. Like you, like you might think. Well, the beauty about how Denver was created, it's, it's the Confluence between the North Platte River and the Colorado River and the Cherry Creek. And all of those things came together, which is always how Town's got started in the old old west, but it's just east of the Foothills log. Rocky Mountains. And what does that mean? I mentioned, we have fourteen thousand foot mountains here, right? So, all the weather, blows up and shoots everything really high. And by the time, the precipitation normally hits and touches down. It's in the Eastern Plains, which is why we grow all of our fruits and vegetables and our corn and whatever we grow on the Eastern Plains. We used to be part of the package is territory and all that flat land that used to be part of Kansas. We have a bit of it and that's east of us in the Eastern Plains. And so the central part of Denver what is subject to as massive swings of temperature. And so the thing I tell people is be prepared to wear layered close. So this is true. I got up one day and it was a hundred degrees and the next day it was 35.

"Night, right? Great segue for me. So, Simon a Brett who's been in Bangkok for a while. Has a company called speak. It's one of the top rated tours on TripAdvisor and Page. This is actually a great safe way to get the experience without having any of the concerns about getting ripped off, etc. Etc. But he does offer nightly tours on wage Took drives you around to some of the cool and interesting sites at night and also takes you for some great food as well. I've personally done the door. It's fun and easy way. I get an introduction to the city, perfect. Yeah. I mean I think that's great because instead of trying to figure out where to go the tour is already done for you, right? And I'm sure it's pretty affordable as well, and seems like a great way to explore our city. And so let's talk about some of the things that maybe we do on the tour or just we should check out while we're in the city. Anyways, you kind of alluded to it a little bit earlier was like some of the historical sites and everything in the, in the old C. But what are some of those things that we should check out? Yeah, I kind of see that Bangkok is like an onion. So, you know, I hear from a lot of people like Bangkok. I don't know. Not that interesting. I want to go to Phuket searching. My it's too busy. It's too this too. That I really think Bangkok offers so much. It's like an onion, so many different layers to the city and so much to explore home. You know, some of the, this is pretty obvious, the place you go to see is the Grand Palace or the emerald Jade Temple. This is the most awfully site in the country. It's the most important Buddhist temple in the country, and it's absolutely stunning and beautiful. My tip here by your ticket online and you have to cover your shoulders and wear long pants, but go there for a couple of hours and just take it all in. It's a fabulous place to visit and just a second, tallest, building in Bangkok and the building with the highest Skydeck in the city Mahon Nakhon, just finished a couple of years ago. I just went up there a couple of months ago pretty spectacular building pretty awesome, roof deck, and pretty spectacular, views of the city again. Buy your ticket. Online before hiking over there, I went up for Sunset obviously. That's a great time to be going. Another tip. I mentioned that Chao praya River. This is a pretty big thoroughfare. Basically that traces the west side of Bangkok and it's near The Old City. There's tons of these giant longboats that bring computers to different fairy stations along the river and something like four twenty cents. You can jump on these boats, they're not meant to be tour boats, but in reality jump on their get a window seat or. Well, there's not Windows per se, but sit by the river and ride it for 30 minutes for 20 minutes for an hour. And then City just ride back or jump off on another station. This is like a lot of fun. I one thing I want to ask is okay. Obviously like you mentioned that the city's really big with like ten to Fifteen million people. And sometimes in those bigger cities you got to worry about pickpockets or you know, these are no such things when you're on the boat or you're on the subway and those type of things. Do you really have to watch out for like, your, your belongings or wage is a pretty safe? I would say very safe. I mean, of course there are pickpockets, are there must be. I've never had a situation like that nor am I even really heard of friends or friends of friends, who have been mugged or pickpocketed, etc, etc. The one thing Aladdin. Way, I gave that example the must-see Grand Palace. This is probably the most horsted site in the city meeting. That's where some of the scam artists are. So one of the scams in this is probably across the world. Is some tie guy. Probably speaks pretty English will come up to you and go oh, Grand Palace is closed today. Let me suggest that you go here. And of course it's never closed and he's just trying to sell you something else. So be careful of those touristy scams that can take place in the more tourist areas of publicity. Sure. And like you said, if you buy your tickets online, you already know the schedule of when it's open, anyways, so you know that for sure that it's going to be open that day. Definitely one of the things that I know that people really suck when I think about about Thailand is like a movie type fight and I actually interview somebody from Chiang Mai and he said that Bangkok is a place for The Watch movie Thai fight. Yeah, the great thing about Thailand, Thursday is we tires everywhere. There's two real stadiums with in Bangkok. One is lumpini, which is really famous that used to be like really in the city a couple of years ago, they built a newer Stadium outside of the city a little bit. The other stadium that name is I can't think of that name right now but the job The two stadiums, there's basically a fight every single night, usually alternating between the two stadiums. The thing that kind of frustrates me a little bit, is in the area, surrounding the ring, the best seats. You're basically as a tourist, you're forced to sit in this area. So there's tons of cheap seats, wage in general for hunters are not allowed to sit up there. So, in other words, you're forced to sit next to the ring, which is great for the view, but you're charged give or take $50 for the seat. Where the cheap seats are, you know, probably five or ten dollars, so just be aware of that when you do go to visit, nonetheless, you gotta go see it once because it's a off some experience down again with. Like we talked about some of the other attractions do we need to buy our tickets online ahead of time or this is something you can just walk up.

"Were we'll go for that. So they have chocolate farms and then coffee farms are really popular as well. So you've got kona coffee which is world famous. And then you've got the kona chocolate as well so the place that i recommend for the chocolate farm tours is actually over on the hilo side. It's called love aloha end so you can think of it as aloha as how everybody says hi in hawaii and lava which is what the big island is famous for. You put those two together. You get love aloha but they do a chocolate tour over on the hilo side and it's it's a really cool experience you know hawaii. The climate and everything is pretty ideal for growing chocolate. And then they give you samples and all that fun stuff. So that's a really cool experience. The coffee farm tours are really cool as well. I'm not a coffee drinker. But i have family and friends that drink coffee and they said the kona. Coffee is just amazing. So that's back over on kona side. There's a lot of different farms that do tours greenwell farms and minet coffee company or two of the ones that do a really good job of the coffee farm tours over on the kona side. And then if you have kids one of the coolest things on the island for kids is. There's a place called the canelo octopus farm and you go in and they have live octopus. You get to interact with and you get to feed them. You get to watch them swim. You can put your hands in the tank. I had octopus wrapped his tentacles around my finger. And you can feel there's suction cups and everything in so it's something that the kids really get a kick out of. They give you a little crab leg that you get to feed them and everything and they teach you all about the to put in They're actually the smartest animal that doesn't have a backbone so they are pretty bright animals and you can get your pictures taken with him and all that kind of stuff. So that's something that the kids get a kick out of. Oh you. I know my kids would love that. They might freak out a little bit with the dysfunction cups and everything. But i know that'd be a really memorable experience for them so speaking memorable experiences with when you're in hawaii obviously i know that the food culture there is really amazing as well the really cool textures and tastes and everything. What are some of the places we should look at when we're when we're there in on the big island as far as having those local experiences. Yes so there's there's a lot of Really good local places. I mean the cuisine in general is very it says driven. You know you have a lot of the different fishes He's in the ono's and things like that And then the sauces and toppings and all that kind of stuff are made with tropical flare. So you've got pineapples mango and things like that. So you know in general. That's what you're looking at. You know lots of good restaurants in kona. I would recommend fosters kitchen which is a local restaurant they have two locations actually wanting in kona and then one up the coast a little bit in waco loa but they make everything from scratch so you know everything right down to their ketchup and mayonnaise. They make in house use all local inorganic ingredients and everything and they have a really diverse menu as well so they do all the traditional hawaii staples but then they also do southern barbecue. And just kind of stuff that you might not expect in hawaii as well. So there's something on that menu for everybody. You know no matter what you what you're into and they have a really good kids menu as well. They have a nice ocean view at their locations. So it's on the second floor of a building so you're elevated you've got a nice view of the sea and everything right out there dining room so that's a really good spot papa. Chona's in kona as well. They have really good views. They are literally right on the water as well and they have a really good menu of a lot of local hawaiian staples but in general. I think paul cables are really popular. I'm not a big poe cable. Fan myself. Because i'm not a big raw fish fan but you know for people that like raw fish. Po cables are really popular I talked to people just walking down the street. They're like where is the best place to get po- cables and so from some of my friends and stuff that have have eaten a bunch of the different ones around the island There's a place called. Powell hannah pauquet which is up by cosco and so that's typically the first stop for most people. When they come into the island they go to costco in stock up on a lot of food and stuff like that. If they're staying in like an airbnb or whatever and so you go right past pow hannah pauquet on your way to costco and so you can pick up a poe cable there. I think that's one of the great things about whether it's an airbnb or like a condo or like a timeshare or whatever having that kitchen so that we can make some food yourself save a little bit of money but still then have the extra cash from your travel budget to be able to explore a little bit on some of these experiences and trial different local foods that you wanna be able to try without kind of feeling like you're breaking your budget. Yeah exactly and that's something. I always encourage people to do. You know whenever possible is just try to get a place in the kitchen and we can talk about that a little bit later. I guess but you know there are some good places that i can recommend where you can try to get some deals on on things like that and save some money to sure. Sure so whenever. I have like a time share condo. Lotta times we like breakfast and everything like that inter unit but if you want to go out someplace and enjoy something local for for breakfast. Where would we go for that so when you go to hawaii. I always love eating aside eagles for breakfast in hawaii they do a really good job of topping them out with your local fruits. And so you get a very tropical feel able in so for those of you not familiar with an able. You have the frozen asai puree topped with granola and fruit in so in hawaii. It's a lot of your bananas obviously but then pineapple and mangoes and papayas and those kinds of tropical fruits and it just gives you a really good feel for the different kinds of fruits and stuff that you can find on the island and there are two places that do a really good job with the assad apples. one is a place called local reps. And they're right by the post office in kona than the other one is called basic cafe and they are on the drive. Which is the main tourist. Drive right there in kona. They both do a really good job with the asai bowls in that. That would be my go-to for breakfast. Nice yeah it's something like refreshing healthy. Gets you ready to rock and roll either with your bikini at the beach or get ready to go on a nice hike. Exactly so safe. I'm maybe graham with us and we're only the kids with them or we find somebody to kind of babysit the kids for for a few hours and i wanted to go out someplace. Nice.

"Next to him and everything's add like now be be respectful absolutely and they have signs up and everything. When you go there to about i forget what the actual distances but they have that on the signs as far as like how far away you have to stay and and all that kind of stuff. I have young kids. And i don't want them like renting up jumping out like riding a horse with no kids. Say back no and then the green sand beach is also down in the southern part of the island. It's really cool it. Is you know as a caveat. You have to have a four wheel drive. If you're gonna drive up to it otherwise there are locals that are there that will put you in the back of their pickup truck for ten or fifteen dollars or whatever and and take you there kind of as a little offer. Taxi kinda deal but otherwise it's a it's a pretty good hike too if you wanna walk it and it is indirect sunlight so i don't you know unless you're have a lot of water in pretty said i don't really recommend trying to hike it but if you have a four wheel drive you know you can get there otherwise i would take the one of the locals offers on a ride up. There are the sounds good. You know the name of that one papa kayla okay. I'm i'm talking the spelling of these. Well them in the show notes on the map and everything like that so that way. Well let's take a step back because obviously when people think of why it's all about beaches and hanging out and everything like that. But i think that there's so much more to learn about the island and everything but the first you mentioned earlier about getting chewed island. That's generally you're gonna fly into kona but there's also the hilo airport to right so there's two different options if you're gonna be flying safe from like the west coast or different part of the us over to to the big island right. There are most of the flights. do come into kona. And that's where most of the people will end up flying into. The advanced to the hilo side is that it is closer to the national park. And so if you're coming there specifically for the purpose of going to hawaii volcanoes national park and you wanna stay closer to that side. I would recommend finding the hilo if that's your primary focus but for most people that want to get you know whole overview of the whole island. I would definitely recommend flying into kona and service really well directly into kona from several cities on the west coast delta flies in their united flies in their american alaskan and south west actually just at flights as well and so you know any of the western cities san francisco l. a. Seattle portland san diego. You can all fly directly straight into kona fantastic. Yeah i love. The south west did that. I've had the southwest companion pass since two thousand seven. So i have a reason to use it alluvia absolutely right on your mentioned earlier that you should get a rental car because it pretty much the way that island The way i what i've take of it is that it's big enough where you want to have to have your own car. You not be getting an uber or shuttles or whatever else like that the entire trip so get your car and then that we drive around and be on your own schedule correct. Yeah absolutely if you don't have a car you're just gonna miss out on so much that it offers It is a pretty remote areas amid is a lot of off the beaten path kind of things. And if you're trying to do that on an uber or public transportation it's going to be very difficult to impossible and so definitely recommend the car a lot of people like renting jeeps. You know the four by four. It's not a hundred percent necessary. You know you can get by with a car But if you do have a jeep skinny give you a little bit more of that clearance so that you can hit some of those more off roading type places okay cool. That sounds pretty awesome. Well let's talk about some of the other things we should do while were there. Because i know there's like we talked about. There's an abundance of things to do beyond the beach and see you go there for like a week obviously spent a couple of days on the beach relaxed. Chill-out hit the water. And everything else like that. But there's like so much more we should be doing when we hit the big island. Yeah there is. I mean you can do just about anything. Obviously your your water activities kayaking. Snorkeling waterfalls are really big There's some botanical gardens You can go zip. Lining take a helicopter tour. But you know some of the things that i really like our stuff that unique to the big island. And maybe the most favorite thing i've ever done on the big island is go stargazing and you might kinda say wait what stargazing and hawaii. You don't really think about that but you know wear hawaii is located. It's the most remote island chain in the world and so if you look at a map it is literally ocean all the way around for forever. People don't realize just how remote it is and so that location mixed with the fact that you've got these two huge mountains in the middle of the island and very very little light. Pollution makes it one of the most ideal if not the most ideal place. In the whole world to go stargazing. Oh wow yeah and it's just breathtaking. A company called epic tours. That does the stargazing trips. And it's a small group tour. They usually do it like in a jeep or a little sprinter van. But you're looking at maybe four six people that you go up and they take you up one of the mountains obviously at night so we're looking at probably nine ten o'clock at night once it's good in dark and you drive up above the clouds and as soon as you get above the clouds you can see stars everywhere. It is amazing. And then they they take your pictures and you can get silhouette pictures and all this kinda stuff with you in the stars and i mean we were looking at saturn. We saw jupiter and actually we were seeing constellations because of where we're at that typically you can only see in the southern hemisphere. They point out all the different constellations. While you're up there and words can just not describe how many stars there are in the sky when you get up there so that that is something that i always recommend the people. It's not something you think about doing when you go to hawaii but me having been there for so long done literally everything on the island. That is mytalk thing that i recommend you do. That is amazing. My my podcast editor steve. He was just talking to me the other day about a place in colorado that he was going to go on a trip to about the dark skies initiative. And kind of what. You're talking about that. Low light pollution sparsely occupied as far as the number of people. Everything like that. So that way us have just incredible views of the night sky that again. I'm from southern california. We have lights everywhere and we probably see like three stars in the sky and going to a place like that and just having that. Experience is probably mind-blowing. Yeah and they send you home with pictures of it too. It's just a really cool thing to remember like you said you just can't you can't do that anywhere else to that degree. Sure sure. what are some of the other things that happened there on the island i. I was looking at something like a chocolate farm tour. My wife loves chocolate chocolate. So.

Why Rent Your Marketing When You Should Own It?

"Hello and welcome to another episode or the duct tape marketing podcast. This is John. Jansen my guest today actually have two guests today, Clem Huffman, and Alexa are Sierra with south. Print in Charlotte North Carolina. So clemen Alexa thanks for joining me. I. Start with do you founded this business in Nineteen Eighty Eight Let's change in the printing business hasn't. John Absolutely. You're making you're making plates and slap an on and everything weren't you? Won't of copies a of plates you're right lot of masking but yeah, it's changed the time. Yeah. So so we're GONNA talk about some of those changes because some of that came about from you. Probably in some ways the reason you brought Alexa on his you guys are doing more than just print. So Alexei your. Did I get this right. You are recent very recent Grad of UNC wars I. Am I graduated from Chapel Hill's media and journalism school this past may yeah. So I get to ask you how is the real word different than what teach you about marketing in school? Is actually kind of funny. I didn't fully study marketing and. Advertising and PR. which as you know is Large branches of marketing. So. It's definitely interesting. It's it's been a great experience working. Here at socity Prenton getting to implement marketing and. Utilize advertising and pr just of those things outside of a school setting. Impact as you say, I think the thing that's so hard to replicate a course in an in an academic setting is that you know that customer that walks in the door You know you're you're you're not just studying. What they care about I mean you're talking in your, you're feeling what they're. You know needing and wanting and and I think that that that's the part that you. You know it's like trying to replicate stuff in a laboratory. You just really again, it's a lot more enjoyable for sure. So. So printing is a very visual business obviously. The. It's amazing how you know ink on paper looks different than on a screen. Looks different than on camera on the phone and whatnot. Has Has. All of the shift to the virtual world made. The case for a printing business harder and I, answer either one of you. Think it's harder. certainly. In the last recession we were. There was a lot of migration to the -Ture. Techniques Communicating I think now there are a lot of there's a lot of data that suggests that tangible. documents a postcard to use. The simplest example. Has a lot more power than it did. It's it does get delivered the post office pretty good at delivering and it it it if it's good, it'll be retained. If it's good, it'll be used. We've kind of connected the tangible direct mail with some some Ma digital advertising. Through a partnership we've joined and we feel pretty good about the ability to multi touch. Selects authority on my chest adore. I'll just let's just savable I walked in the door and I said, you know I'll just text you this stuff I, mean, why would I need I mean what's how do you make the case for? Just what Clem talked about the multi touch the multi. Mediums I mean, how do you make the case for direct mail or for a print brochure these days? Yeah. Little something that Clement I talk about a lot is how I think some people might misunderstand the impact that direct mail and More traditional forms of marketing actually have on business effort. So for example, millennials. Actually are one of the. Biggest I guess demographics that benefit from enjoy receiving direct mail so I think it's the data is behind A. Direct mail and more traditional forms of print marketing. Where it's the data speaks for itself and also I think because more digital were straightforward forms of marketing are popular. Right now is a great way for businesses to stand out by using Prenton.

The Indigenous Practice of Controlled Burning to Prevent Wildfires

"Four out of five of the largest wildfires ever recorded in California have occurred this year five, million acres of land have burned on the west coast. As officials look for solutions they're turning more and more to the native Americans who have long been forced out of tending to the land they once stewarded. So successfully, specifically officials have begun working more with tribal leaders on prescribed burning knowing when and. Where to intentionally burned parts of the forest in a manageable way to prevent out of control wildfires in the future quoting the New York Times long before California was California native Americans used fire to keep the land where they lived healthy that meant intentionally burning excess vegetation at regular intervals during times of the year when the weather would keep blazes smaller in cooler than the destructive wildfires burning today. The work requires a deep understanding of how wins would spread flames down a particular hillside or win lighting a fire in a forest would foster the growth of certain plants and that knowledge has been passed down through ceremony in practice. But until recently, it has mostly been dismissed as unscientific and quotes. Various organizations run by native American, communities have worked with other conservancy nonprofits and private landowners over the years to help them repair forested areas and make them more sustainable and in some parts of the southeastern United States prescribed fire has already been in practice officially by state governments for several decades. But on the West Coast, the practice has long been suppressed quoting again over the course of California's long colonial history native Californians were violently systematically systematically stripped of the ability to tend the land they had lived on for centuries as white settlers pursued gold, timber, and territory. This, dark history unfolded while modern firefighting agencies and techniques were formed under the heavy influence of Europeans who wanted to maximize timber halls said, Mary Huffman director of the indigenous. Peoples Burning Network the Nineteen Twenty article written by William B. Greeley in the Timmerman dismisses light burning as practiced by quote the Indians in various Western pine forests long before the advent of the white man end quote as fallacy propaganda that if he did would lead to the destruction of lucrative trees bill trip director of natural resources in environmental policy for the Kuru. Tribe Department of Natural, resources wrote in a piece for the Guardian the crew people were shot for burning as recently as the nineteen thirties. The idea of prescribed burning remained polarizing for decades as federal and state firefighting agencies were built up around the idea that wildfire was an enemy to be defeated using military-style tactics not a tool that could help prevent destruction and quotes. Now the US Forest Service and the State of California will be working intentionally with tribal leaders on prevention tactics including prescribed fire. It's a step in the right direction, but like everything will come with complications not only have the centuries of suppression built a deep mistrust, but the land itself has changed and new tactics accounting for climate change will need to be teased out while it's definitely a net positive Belinda Brown, a member of the Cosa Band of the Jima way ought to gain nation and travel partnerships director for the low Mukasey Restoration Project said quote we're getting that I told you so hard.

But Chapel Trap house has a right to basically say what they want, but apparently they're threat has been shut down. Two shut down 2000 communities after updating their content policy to more explicitly ban hate speech. Policy up taking three weeks after black lives matter. Protests led several popular rented forms go dark temporarily in protest of what they called the company's lacks policies around hosting and promoting racist content. So now Reddit has decided that they are going to continue to crack down on the ability of others to speak. I mean, read its CEO Steve Huffman said. Quote. I have to admit I've struggled about balancing my values as an American and around free speech and free expression with my values and the company's now he's around common human decency. So this is where the rubber meets the road. Here's the reality. There is an Overton window, right? These corporations are not the government and they are allowed to have certain limits as to what they will allow. But if your belief in common decency is basically you just agree with the policy preferences of left. Of common decency means you agree with the left. And that is what is coming into conflict with free speech and free expression and free speech and free expression are no longer existence
