"So yeah well. What does this whole thing main to you when you're just standing there daydreaming about things. What is the season travel. What do wanted to be. I guess season traveler for me. Initially the idea was about a platform where everything sort of do and believe in can exist. Which is celebrating cultural diversity through food sharing those stories and in a multimedia fast as well the writing yes always i mean. That's my background. That's where i've come from but also just a place for more and more video content to live just because if you want to get a message out there not everybody wants to raid three hundred six hundred twelve hundred woods deep diving into a cuisine or a culture for some people. The storytelling is visual. And i think could be an oversight to just have written content on a website or publication. Like that. i suppose looking ford. It'd be great to have season traveler. Be something that shares the stories of people who might be underrepresented but also have writers or talent who underrepresented doing the same thing as well. So call it. Contributors whatever that looks like or even you know having a season traveler or podcast or anything. I just think exploring as many mediums as possible to get that message out about eight and curiously and ordering and exploring outside your comfort zone so that you can learn more about this but also your own biases as well. Which i think is as big a thing often. You have to check yourself when you're looking at a menu you want to build some basically sounds like you want to build something bigger than just you and your name. Yeah absolutely but whatever. The fastest route is to raching the average eater as opposed to the average person. And just making them think about food as something more than just sustenance or more than avocado and toast in melbourne on a sunday or saturday morning. I just think there's so much opportunity for food to be that medium where it's a window into something else. So who were the publications you think about that. You really enjoy that your point idea. No ideas but structure and style from today visually. I think i would always aspire to something like netflix's straight food for example. Just because you don't even have to love food at all to be completely engaged in something like that visually. It's just beautiful. The sound the learnings around that. The storytelling is incredible. That sort of the ultimate i think in terms of visually in terms of written content does not nothing. I've really based what i do off. It's very much my own style. Which is probably why. I had to put it in a website. That wasn't someone else's but they're they're sort parts that you can pull from So their newsletters newsletters that go out now that might show people's personalities or cultures. That are a lot more niche i think. Sbs food who i write for just to get my biases out straightaway. They do a great job at sharing. These stories not necessarily having to cover a person or a dish. That's really well known. Brand new or celebrity chef. I like this sort of short. Social media friendly nippy new style of a publication like eater dot com which some people don't like because they're take diversity hasn't been great recently but it sort of taking all the best parts. I hope of publications that exist already but then Sharing stories and content. That i just think for whatever it has been mostly overlooked. Yeah well that was the thing that i wrote. He is like when it comes to latest people. You look to annoy that in an old interview. You mentioned your fan of gal grain ideal. I will remember this clip of gill and ramsey. Having an argument saying that. It's like from wednesday What was his first. Tv show or something like that. When is a young ramsay and these first kitchen they going for like three stars three michelin styles or whatever Jeffrey stein gotten jonathan goal. But i always like when. I saw your video very distinct mayor mira and food safari vibes teach compliment and i did one where the she was. Part of your inspiration or i guess if you pulling from different people you just sorta started define it in your own way. I love i absolutely love what she does And and in a roundabout. Why would probably say i'm i think more similar to what she is and stands for and what she's doing then people have probably reference to heroes all look up to in the past. I mean even hearing you repeat some of those names back now. They seem less relevant than whenever that interview was. I guess because. I mean it's a slightly older generation. I don't agree with some of the masculinity around some of those people and how they present themselves. I mean the would have been a time not so long ago. Where would it be like. Fuck yeah i wanna be anthony bourdain. That's the next person he's my hero. I love him but that's i. I don't really want a seat at that table anymore. Times have changed. I wanted to create my own table. And i want you know young women to feel like they can go out and get their hands dirty talking rating writing about food and not necessarily just end up in a shiny kitchen. Doing the nigel thing. Which is fine. People can do that. But i would. I would much rather be a young woman who's not afraid of getting a little bit of food poisoning on camera. If it means that you're going to be able to share someone's culture and story and embrace difference in that way here malvo mira feel like that's the most accurate way of looking at it. I remember always like it's funny. I feel like. I was talking about the other week in the interview. We'd like sit down friday night and we have like 'cause we just didn't get takeaway for mama do like you know now. Everyone likes all these new types on things like for while it was sort of that made Live contain stall Peter type pizza thing. We would always have that for like dinner on a friday night and mom would call it like come Not pay to muffins to something that real bicyc- like we'd be so strict about it and we watch because they would always watch. Sbs so we watch stuff like that. All of all would be at a premium Some of us were allowed to have a didn't like it absolutely not to have it because it's so bloody expensive by the latest. Bring a lot of memories for me. And i remember watching that show and thinking like malcolm we cook this week. We cook that was on. I don't know if she's still going on in terms of she's just started doing food to us. In sidney really believe yes. I saw something called like saying to us believe but i wouldn't want to be quoted on it but there was a broadsheet article one whether they Hell a foreign advanced. That'd be selling them..

"First presidential debate just hours away, some Americans will be watching closely to see what more the president has to say on the matter. President Trump defended his tax record on Monday by saying on Twitter that he was quote entitled to take advantage of tax loopholes like everyone else. I'm Tanzi to Vega and that's what we're going to start today on the take away looking at our tax code and how these loopholes actually work for more on this, we turn to Jeffrey Stein Whitehouse Economics reporter for The Washington Post's Jeff, Welcome Back to the show. Hey, thanks so much for having me back. So a lot of tax code stuff to get through. But let's remind our listeners Why has the president not voluntarily disclosed his tax records so far? Well, I think we're seeing the reason right now of the president broke decades of precedent and refusing as a 2016 presidential candidate, Um, to release his tax returns. He has claimed that he cannot do this because he is under audit. But there is nothing that would stop him from, say, having released of all of the years of his tax returns prior to the current audit, Ah bee I arrest has not made clear that Trump is unable to do this and a lot of the attorneys we've spoken to have said. That it might be difficult on some of the edge cases related to the audit, but overall, you know he could do it. So that has been more or less a pretty clearly knockdown Vallis E at this point Um, you know, the question of why he has released his tax returns became a huge controversial controversy in Congress. House Democrats sued for Trump's tax returns. Treasury secretary had to explicitly deny, um, a part of the law that says that Congress that the tax writing committees of Congress were entitled to the returns. Um, and yet, of course, now we have them or not in your times has him I should say on DH so we can see a little bit why Trump and his administration were so resisted. Um, for the public to see these documents, and we know the New York Times didn't just get them yesterday. They've been working on getting them or some semblance of them for years. Now, one of the most striking features, at least to some Americans was how little President paid in federal taxes for 2016 and 2017. We're talking $750. Jeffrey. I think I've paid more my own in my own taxes is that how do we even get to that type of a figure? It's a great question, so maybe I could try to explain it a little bit for the listeners. So most people, you and I, you know, we pay our Federal income taxes on our wages and our salaries, right? We collect the cheque, you know, every other week from our employers, and then at the end of the year that you know, however much we make sure you go to the tox rate You see for your income bracket. How much you pay? That's what most people do. And then separately, many people act most people actually work for companies, and the companies also pay what's called a corporate tax rate. Most you know many companies reform is a C Corp It's called and said they pay. Um, a separate corporate tax, which is now 21%. The Republican tax law lowered the corporate tax rate from 35% to 21%. Donald Trump is actually in neither of those categories. The either the personal income tax situation that that I described for wages and salaries or In the corporation corporate business tax. He's formed as, um, What's called, You know, a sole proprietorship or escort. These are, you know, pass through entities. And what a pastor entity means there's a bunch of different sort of legal form illegal structures that constitute pastures. But the upshot is that the business owner pays his taxes on his business and his personal taxes sort of as one combined thing. So that means that his personal income tax obligations is often just reflective of what the business is doing in Trump's case. He's taking such tremendous losses, particularly his golf courses that he's able to offset his other tax obligations, including what we normally think of as your federal income tax obligations, Trump Has a ton of money. He has a ton of assets, but what's known as his G I. His adjusted gross income. Which helps determine your federal income tax rate is actually quite low. Because if you're formed as the as a sole proprietorship rise an S Corp Rosa passed through. You're acquiring these assets. They're increasing your debt Wells. But they're not actually leading to your your average. No income to be that high, And that's why Trump's Ah income payments. You know, federal income tax payments were only 750. But Geoffrey, I want to stop you there for a second, because I feel like there's a lot of stuff. I mean, that's super interesting, and a lot of Americans probably don't own golf courses and that are losing money and all that other stuff. This feels like something that really I mean, that really sort of affects uber wealthy Americans right in terms of how they interpret the tax code and how they're able to take advantage of some of the Loopholes that you're describing that the rest of us just aren't able to do. So. What is it about the tax code that really favors wealthier Americans? Well, there's that's a really great question. And just, you know, the point that you just raised about the enormous discrepancy here. Uh, we talked to a bunch of tax experts to look at the state and I looked at some of the data myself. Um it really seems like Trump's average federal income tax payment in 2016 and 2017 amounted ah, the federal income tax payment of someone who earns between 40 and $50,000 a year. Um, average over the course of 20 years. For what we know about Trump's taxes. He probably paid, um, the income taxes of someone who learned about $150,000 a year annually and You know, I don't need to tell anyone this but just worth pointing out that Trump does not live like someone who you know, makes 150 K and you, leader 40 or 50 K annually. He lives like a billionaire, and he has an incredibly lavish lifestyle. The planes and the Jets and the towers of the golf courses. I mean, you go on and on and on, but, um, this this legal structure that You know? Yeah, a zoo said correctly, most, you know, the vast vast vast majority of Americans do not have the capacity to deduct millions of dollars in business lost off their taxes, and this is actually I know this part of the tax code is relatively old, but This is part of a longer trend in America, where we really do not attacks are rich people at the same rates in other countries, or really even has the same rights that we once did. Americans. Used to pay at the top of the Incan distribution used to pay farm or a toxin in the 19 sixties, Um, the richest 4400 Americans have an average effective federal tax rate of well over 50%. And now that number is less than 25%. There's lots of complicated reasons for that. But a big part of it is that we have decided as a country not to tax the rich as much as we once did. We fund many social services at a less generous rate than we once did, as a result in part, and, um We've really under funded the I. R. S and the number one source of IRS audits. The IRS is going most aggressively at auditing the earned income tax credit, which is a credit for blowing come workers. And we did. The amount of iris enforcement on the rich has really plummeted. So there's a lot in other words, Geoffrey that. I mean, there's been reporting on this that that the IRS is aggressively going for what you said the earned income tax credit and those air largely low income workers. People of color. Poor people, right? That's corrupt and I mean We don't know exactly what the situation there may be. Times doesn't hasn't told us yet will later this week, But we don't know precisely what is going on with the IRS audit, But we can certainly say that as dire as has stepped up enforcement of the poor..
Trump went even further than other uber-rich to shrink taxes
"On Sunday night the New York Times published the first piece in an investigation detailing President Donald Trump's tax return data from the past two decades according to the Times reporting the president did not pay federal income taxes in eleven of the eighteen years they looked at and he also reportedly just paid seven hundred and fifty dollars federal income taxes in both two, thousand, sixteen and twenty seventeen the revelations about trump's tax records come less than six weeks before the November election and with first presidential debate just hours away some Americans will be. Watching closely to see what more the president has to say on the matter president trump defended his tax record on Monday by saying on twitter that he was quote entitled to Take Advantage of tax loopholes like everyone else for more on this, we turn to Jeffrey Stein White, house economics reporter for The Washington Post Jeff Welcome back to the show. Hey, thanks so much from you backbone. So lot of tax code stuff to get through but let's remind our listeners. Why has the president not voluntarily disclosed his tax records so far? Well I think we're seeing the reason right now the president broke a decades of precedent and refusing as two thousand sixteen presidential candidate truly says tax returns.

"And it is. This. Cunanan proof of a massive success on that front as but then as you tell that story right I mean, is this a facebook problem or is it an Internet problem right? Because like in twenty seventeen I'd probably wrote columns like this right like there was tons of coverage and argument about isolation and alien nation and crippling loneliness and personal anxiety as the chief fruits of social media. Right? That like people weren't in communities they were sort of just alone performing for a crowd and and maybe being polarized just by like you know the sort of hysteria their news feeds or something right so like. there. There is a way in which sucker burgers being responsive to what seems like. The problem of loneliness and isolation on social media, and the problem is that when you pivot to community safe, it turns out that the communities that the Internet bills are communities of of hysterical conspiracy right then facebook steps in and breaks up these communities, and then you're back to the loneliness and Annemie problems social media, right? Right. I mean it's it's an Internet problem for sure I mean it's Again, nothing about a lot of these conspiratorial dynamics are our new per se but the Internet, superchargers it the Internet allows it to happen at a scale that we're that we're not used to. That is unprecedented facebook responsibility here if it's going to have this primacy in the world is going to be allowed to operate at such scale. Cunanan is a dangerous group at dangerous community. Yes. It is. A community is a community based in a in a conspiracy theory that never came true that Hillary Clinton was about to be sent off to Guantanamo Bay. For you know being involved with sex trafficking and it is the as we've talked through here it is. Antisemitic in nature, it is dangerous in what it asks you to do to fight your political opponents and I, think you know it's in a similar way to how facebook treats other dangerous communities, other extremists, communities it purges them, and it doesn't necessarily anymore at least think twice about pershing. White nationalist community but we I mean we should say that there have been made in the last year right? Serious facebook purges. Of Cunanan Right? The argument is that they've come too late. It's a it's a little late I mean they're trying now but but again, these these networks are dense and. They're they're very resilient so they'll pop up around. New Age wellness or they'll rebrand themselves as children against sex trafficking websites, and they pivot off real world events right? Like it's if you have something like the Jeffrey Stein thing and you have a large population. Commenting on it and theorising about it. Those are in a sense conspiracy theories, but they're also theories that. In a social network. That wants to have a reasonable range of debate needs to leave up right? Like I, mean, it just seems like there's a ton I mean this is getting the power of conspiracy theories. There's a ton of ambiguity about what? You know what constitutes a conspiracy theory and what constitutes commenting on the news of the day. Wait. So this is Ross being Cunanan adjacent. How do you know I'm not you himself I may be running. You know I've been I've been I think it's totally reasonable to think that it's dangerous and insane. My question is more like to what extent..

"No, seriously I'm trying okay well not to take a turn onto the dark side here, but let's talk about what we learned this week. Have you heard about the wayfair scandal liquid fair? Shopping yes. Really to my story is yesterday. No I didn't. I was outside playing. No cheese held on I I gotTA. Send you something so you have a visual. Okay I. Just think this instagram profile. Atlantic like right now, but she has a story. Highlight that's literally is called wayfair that you can click and kind of see what I'm talking about. Basically, if you don't know and listen before every surge jumping down my throat I'm not saying that this is a hundred percent true because I don't know all I'm saying is that this is very suspicious and if they're innocent than what's The harmon investigation? That's all I'm saying. What the hell you're talking about. Yeah I just had a press before one starts freaking out on me I'm just saying look into it and make your own decision to. Wayfair is being accused of basically. Like sex trafficking, so they are selling these cabinets. Actually. They took him down once. People started noticing it and talking about it on read it, but they were selling these cabinets that were like these plain gray, basic looking cabinet That's like garage storage. They were selling them for like fifteen thousand dollars and each of them they all the cabinets looked exactly the. The, same, but they each hadn't the name of a like a like a kit. Look, someone's name and a lot of the most of the names correlated with a missing person like a missing child. People were like Oh my God. They're trafficking kids in these cabinets like because if you search for the cabinet on like Google and you find it somewhere else it's. It's like a two thousand dollar cabinet and ever here selling him for like fifteen thousand. They're also doing similar things with pillows and shower curtains, supposedly where it's like this basic as hell pillow that they're selling for like twelve thousand dollars, and it has a weird girl's name so people on read it likes figured this out, and I'm started talking about it, wayfair. Wayfair rips down all the products and says these are like garage like industrial grade cabinets, and they are that price, but because the descriptions and photos don't really like show you that we've taken everything down, and we're going to rename them and put the to change the description. Your freaking, right, you're you trafficking kids, and now you're caught. You're taking them down. and. It's just crazy like you really have to click through what I just sent you wells and see it because it's. Like I. Don't know how you look at that and you think that. Oh Yeah, there's an explanation for that like it's absolutely insane. And then there's a give you dive deep enough to where if you searched the skew number of the product and then with this like? like USA. C. or something on Google comes up like kids in swimsuits and underwear and stuff like AIDS frigging crazy, and of course waivers denying, but all I'm saying is. Why not a welcome an investigation with open arms! If you're innocent, that's Zang creepy. You got to watch it did. Research did Epstein have like a investment in Wayfair I. Just saw the other day. Someone posted a picture of Gillan Maxwell with the president of wayfair. Oh, now I did see I saw mindy. Kaeling tweeted out like now I worried if there's a picture of me with gaily somewhere out there, you go to some frigging big Hollywood party. You know you don't know who you're taking. A picture with also wayfair was has already been under fire for providing furniture ice centers where the you know that they're separating families and stuff, so they're already. Already under fire for things, but it's just crazy like you know. Look into it yourself and make your own conclusion but I just think there's no other explanation. I mean it is insane like there is a list of like thirty five missing children's names that were named the the same thing as these cabinets and all listen for like fifteen thousand dollars like it's just nuts Bam are on so. Don't buy from wayfair. Hold on. Let's pump the brakes. Let's have an investigation. If they are innocent, then buy from them if they are not then I. Want an investigation, the FBI does. Jeffrey, Stein, think so. Because everyone's all like shrugging it off the ain't no thang. Just it's depressing. To get on the case here..

"Increasingly dependent on imports as water becomes a rare commodity here. The price of food will increase in the place known as the cradle of civilization life. Here will become more precarious for the PBS news hour, I'm Jane Ferguson in Nasiriyah, Iraq. Today. The US department of agriculture announced new rules that will restrict who can qualify to receive federal food assistance known as the snap program or food stamps as William Wrangham reports. The move comes after similar explicit restrictions were blocked from the farm Bill that President Trump signed today. That's right. Judy Republicans and President Trump wanted restrictions to the food stamp program to be included in the eight hundred sixty seven billion dollar foreign Bill, but Democrats balked in. So those specific restrictions were left out. But the USDA that's the agency that oversees the food stamp program announced today that it is effectively expanding work requirements, and allowing fewer exemptions for hundreds of thousands of Americans who received this federal help buying their groceries. Republicans have long sought these kinds of changes arguing that too many able bodied Americans are getting help that they don't really need. Democrats argue these requirements are. Harsh and will hurt unemployed and underemployed Americans Jeffrey Stein has been covering all this for the Washington Post joins me now. Thank you. Thanks for having. So tell us a little bit more the US put out these rules today. What specific changes are they making? So I think what's really important to understand is that the vast majority of the forty million Americans who received food stamps are working and there's ways around what basically states are allowed to do its grant exemptions for these work requirements for people with snap benefits, if they live in an area with very high unemployment that way, people can still get the benefits they need to be able to eat even if they can't work because there's no jobs and job opportunities in their in their areas. What administration with the Trump administration said today was we're going to restrict and pare back the ability of states to grant waivers, which will have the effect of cutting off potentially seven hundred fifty five thousand people from the program in the argument that they're making is is that the. Rules right now are too lenient in the sense that you're saying if the vast majority of people who receive food stamps are working what what are the requirements actually change. So right now the way the food stamp waiver works is if your area your county has an unemployment rate more than twenty percent of the national average, then you can get the waiver. This would change that to set it up seven percents. Your county would have to have an unemployment rate of above seven percent to receive the exemption, and there are proximity nine hundred counties across the country that fall into that designation. So this could affect a lot of people who are relying its benefits so of those seven hundred and fifty thousand people do we know kind of who those people are they older the young are they like another. It's it's mostly white people. It's mostly poor people on the average income of this group is about four thousand dollars a year, which is four thousand dollars really not a lot of money. But there are throughout the throughout the country thirty six separate states. And territories. How these waivers so that's basically half the country or enough the country. So it's a it's a wide swath of the poor in America. The Republicans have long argued this isn't just a fight that's happening in the Trump administration. They have long argued that people need to work, and if they work then they can receive these benefits this has been a long ideological fight that the Republicans and the Democrats have been fighting for a long time. I understand that the Republicans wanted even more severe restrictions in the farm Bill itself. That's correct. What they wanted to do was to restrict the ability of people with children from six to twelve and elderly people. Well, not exactly unbelievable between the ages of forty nine and fifty nine to be able to receive food stamp benefits. Those changes were rejected because congressional Republicans needed votes in the Senate to pass their farm Bill. So the Trump administration is just gonna do this unilaterally, bypassing congress entirely. So the rules have been put forward I understand there's a ninety day window. Now, I understand I've already seen in my emails and on Twitter that the Democrats and other groups that support. The food stamp program are really fighting this. Is there anything that? They can do right now to change this. There's gonna be a legal challenge. It's not exactly critic who's gonna file that my guess is it's going to be governors and democratic states that say this impedes our ability to effectively administer the program. But we haven't heard that yet. Right now, it really seems like the Trump administration is gonna be able to do this. Without anyone stopping them. Maybe that will change and we'll see Jeffrey Stein of the Washington Post. Thank you very much for being here. Thanks for having me.

He was right there sixty tweet about how awful all this voter fraud was and now we have actual voter fraud. And I I don't know what happened to Marco. I hope he's okay.

They were too many powerful men from both political parties who made that little trip to collapse the island. Yeah. Well, okay. But I I mean, honestly, I think that they're gonna that that is going to get another look because of the fact that now it's Trump's guy that was the one that led him off in the first place, and you know, Trump was involved. How about this one, by the way, this is more of a profile encourage than any sitting Republican has shown did you see this? John Trump golf course housekeeper came forward to say she's undocumented, just right? I mean, obviously, she said she knows that she could be fired or deported by coming forward. She said she's been bothered by Trump's rhetoric. She said, we're tired of the abuse the insults. The way he talks about this. When he knows we're here helping him make money she worked for years as a maid at his New Jersey. Club. She said she told she used phony immigration papers to secure employment the two bedroom. The supervisors there were aware of the immigration status and helped her to keep her job. She made Trump's bed cleaned. His toilet dusted is crystal golf trophies, etc. During her her employment, but you know, and she was talking about that a lot of people there were undocumented, which I'm sure we we just the hypocrisy is so blinding that this is what he's run his whole campaign on pretty much right now in fairness to the president. And that'll get us that very often. But let me just save her that, okay? Because I am fair and fair advice in fairness to the president knowingly hire undocumented person in this case, she did falsify her record. She is relatively blameless in this case that it would be do see about progressive to try to make him out to be a hypocrite for this when we can all make him out to be a hypocrite because he hired white polish undocumented workers Bill hideous building. On Fifth Avenue. So don't worry. He's still a hypocrite. Just in this case, we get. Right. He gets these exemptions every year though to hire people from other countries for mar-a-lago. I mean, he's just a complete and total fraud. I mean it had for one week and the local Florida penny saver advertising for us staff at bar Lago. So very few people see it. And then after that one weekend, they say what we couldn't find any gotta hire foreign workers. They're dirty dirty dirty. They lie about everything. And again, Trump is the Republican party. Okay. There's no difference anymore. The GOP is Trump. They hate democracy. And they hate hard working American people, George H W Bush dob left him.

We have nothing feels like everything's everything's imploding. At once. John stock market is the biggest drops have happened under Trump. We've got the trade deficit is start rocketing.
