"You don't know shit. You're so wrong with that name. Karma and Toledo allegedly instructed an underling to threaten a debtor that he would put him onto the fucking bridge. Okay. Somebody owes you money, you tell me, you don't pay me to put you on a fucking bridge. 6 other men, Joe fish, macario, Salva shoemaker, robino. Mark pure? What is Mark Pugh getting involved with all these Italians? Gabrielle, let's not forget little Anthony pepitone and Vito pepitone. They were also arrested in Europe. And the alleged bananas soldier veto pepperton was taken into custody in Florida Tuesday. An 8th defendant, Joseph franticly remains at large. You know what? It's just gambling. People are trying to make money gambling on things. It ain't the biggest deal in the world, but you're busted that up. You know, you want to be, you know what? You want to really make a difference? Can you put it in to fucking Ezra Miller? And all his crimes, the guy that's the star of the movie, the flash. Can you put it into his crime spree? Ezra Miller has now decided to seek treatment for complex mental health issues a week after he was charged with felony burglary for allegedly stealing alcohol from a home in Vermont, he broke his silence in a statement that he said to variety, having recently gone through a time of intense crisis, I now understand that I'm suffering complex mental health issues and I've been an ongoing treatment. I want to apologize to everyone that I have alarmed and I'm set with my past behavior. I'm committed to doing the necessary work to get back to a healthy, safe and productive stage in my life. I'll come back and tell you more. So this decision to not, you know, for Ezra Miller to seek treatment comes after there was a bunch of reports that Warner Brothers was considering pulling the movie the flash, which is supposed to open next June. Because his crime spree was insane. And I'm not going to read, I'm not going to talk and say they, this fucking 9 non binary bullshit. No, he's a guy who's just completely out of his mind who wants to say, I'm non binary, call me they them. No, I never will. I never will. In June, Rolling Stone reported that he was hosting. Well, okay, stop using the word hosting. He was fucking kidnapping. He kidnapped three young kids and their 25 year old mom. At his drug and gun filled home in Vermont. Then he was also arrested in Hawaii in March for disorderly conduct a charge to which he led a pled no contest. And in April for secondary assault after throwing a chair at some chick. This guy's been in the subject of ten police calls in less than a month in Hawaii.

"Shots and goes to get the Guinness and when he comes back with the pint, all 7 shots are already gone. The barman says, wow, you sure drank those fast. Patty says, will you? You drink fast two of you had what I have. Farmer says, what do you have? He reaches in his pocket, says 50 cents. Okay. All right. Okay. That was a good one. Well, it's these are all. Irish structure always cute. Yep. You know, and I remember most of them at the top of my head. This time I had a piece of a cheat sheet. But when a guy is sitting at the bar, bartender walks by and he says, patty, you got an empty glass there, would you like another? He says, what in the fuck would I need him to do another empty glass for her? There you go. Yeah. They're always the quicker with any joke. The quicker the better. When you got a long story, the payoff is never good. It's never good. It's like when you try to explain your way out of something with your wife. Unless it's a norm joke and just trying to waste your time. But then again, I like that 50 cents joke. That's a good one. Yeah. Yeah, that's pretty quick. So I have a couple more complaints though, that back to the complaint. Well, no, this is pretty important. Okay. Social security is a joke. Oh? I should probably save this for 15 minutes of shame, but I gotta get it off my chest. Let's hear it. I'm just gonna apply for Medicare 'cause I'm old enough now. And I called this, you have to talk to social security. You know, about Medicare. Because you automatically qualified it for part a, you know, it's so confusing. Part a part B, part C you've seen the ads. They drive. So you got to go through social security. So I said, okay, so I call social security and it rang and it rang it rang and rang it rang and then finally it said, we were experiencing hive volume of calls, please call back at another time. Goodbye. Hangs up. I mean, this is after I'm waiting and waiting. The government love it. It never did go to a person. I tried it 5 times. It never went to a person. It just kept ringing and ringing me. I said, well, you can stop in our office with an appointment and I've done that. Here we go with the point. And Worcester office? Yeah, it's Star Wars bar scene. And you're going to wait forever. You want to take about take a number at the deli. This is like take a number and it's 400 numbers away from where awful. So I don't want to do that, but I got to go to them to get Medicare. So I mean, I don't know what I'm going to do. And then they say, well, you got to have these forms filled out to show that you had insurance because my wife changed jobs. And that's the reason for the whole thing. So they tell you right up front of being the call, social security, they say, people are experiencing long waits and dropped calls. Oh, great. The two great things you want to know when you're on hold. Oh, so wait, I'm going to wait a really long time, and then I'm probably going to drop my call. I mean, this is our government at work. This is social security. We pay for that. And I got the patience of a saint. You know that. Yes. So I could sit there all day. While I wait for my oil to be fixed, my oil pan and my, you know, my lip driving job to resume. I'll wait all day to get these Medicare benefits. But I will not be hung up on 5 times and not have to do a repetitive thing. So what am I going to do? I told my wife, I'll pay the extra. We'll go back on your insurance for your, I don't know. But anyway, social security. Yes. What is that? Oh, that's the middle finger. That's exactly what that is. And I'm giving it to the social security administration because you know what you got there. You got people who are government employees who don't give a shit. I bet they never missed a check. They don't give a shit. About who has to wait how long? What the problem is, what their issue is, they don't repeat after me. A shit. And that's what you got to deal with in this world because they see you coming in and they just roll their eyes all got it. Here comes that I think I saw him over at the valley in the other day. And then he couldn't make his phone to work and he was over at the Verizon and family, the two V's. He says fuck a lot. He gets pissed. But you know, actually generally, you know this. I'm a very happy go lucky high spirited guy with nothing but a positive attitude toward pretty much everything. The only time I've ever seen you get angry at me was when I made you wait. When was that one time for a socks game and another time for an appointment? Really? Yeah. You got so fucking mad at me. I did? Yeah. You made me wait? One time for the Sox game, there was nothing I could do. I was just stuck behind an ambulance trying to get off of the pike, so I was just stuck there. Something I could do, and we still pissed. But the other time I was just super late, that just didn't. How about when Cedric Maxwell took my keys? That was the maddest other than the answer. That was the mad stuff I've ever seen. And if I had to roll up the windows on you 'cause you were so mad you were screaming screaming. I was like, Jesus Christ. And Cedric Maxwell, if he wasn't 6, 8, I would have beat the snot out of him for taking my keys home. He took my keys home and he didn't even drive there. He didn't drive there. He didn't have a car. He got a Uber or something. And he'd still picked up my keys in the studio, walked out and went home with him. Now, Ben and I got to go down to where he lives in that sky rise. Downtown right by the commons. The comments, wait for him to get his sorry lazy ass down the stairs and give me back my keys, which he took. Took him like a half an hour to come down and give him back to me. We were sitting in front of his apartment for half an hour, waiting for him to come down and give me my keys, and I said, max, I really want to thank you for this. It wasn't. This wasn't inconvenient at all. And he's like, he's laughing. Fuck it. I should have punched him right then. Yeah. I don't think that would have gone very well for I can take him. I could take him. Anyway, we have another, who's our sponsor this week? Is it still hypothetically? Okay, hypothetically, and by the way, people have been reacting to that. I've had people tweet me saying that was a good call. They went there and they ate and drank, and they loved it. The hop. It was so good. I got my brother a gift gift certificate to go. Did you damn right? It's really good. I think the beer is unbelievable. It's right on the premises and it's strong beer. It's ABV alcohol by volume. Very strong. It's run by Joe fish. Run by Jimmy deetz. Jimmy deetz. And his crew, wrong person, Bill. Joe fish is in there. That's the restaurant restaurant. He doesn't care if you call him Joe fish, that's his restaurant. For his heart and soul, and he's a great guy. So we have, I don't have anything else, except a free plug for the 15 minute shame. Is this podcast up to snuff? Have we gone 26 minutes? Gone 37 minutes. Let's get out of here. And we've listened to you bitch and moan the whole damn time. Oh, yeah. And let me just tell you something else. I talked to two people this weekend about Kirk minahan. Oh, they might hate him more than I do. Really? Yeah. Why is that? That's too long, because we're already 37 minutes in. Maybe I'll tell that story next week. They hate them. Two people that hate minahan. Can you believe.

Part and putting on a putting on a face to record this chair and a is a is a is a lovely little soulful track. As i say god does not really didn't want to record it and was talked into it. Licensed to kill was very violent. It was that right at fifteen but the bomb film to be rated fifteen Really do two things. Firstly bombs all cohort felix lighter. He was wonderfully paid by By david henderson who had played felix lighter bonds body in live and let die with roger. Moore who is good friends with he. He came back to pay felix lighter in licensed to kill and ended up having his leg. Better off by shock basically or more by a shark so that was one reason. It was a fifteen and the second reason to have a sense of sort drug theme running for it with the heroin smuggling with sanchez. Robert davi played a brilliant villain. I it was an edgy uncomfortable. Type of all movie but it was. It was a great a great Late eighties bomb. Movie i mean it was blown out of the water with somebody hits of the day. Indiana jones loss. Crusade ozzy starring Former bone connery in playing Playing indiana jones dad so it was blown out of the water in one thousand nine hundred nine with all ever movies and many people at that point. Four bond was bombers passed it. And may i said it was violent it evolves somebody blowing up an compression chamber. It had the uncomfortable nature drugs about it but if you watch it now that movie has not dated too far and it is a good Pretty violent type of caper. One that You should if if you might daniel craig movies. This set of hodge dalton bomb the second bombed Really really came out to play the partner in a superb way. Second time around and that time people voted return. But that indeed was was dalton's lost james bond effort so timothy dalton had originally set to sign up to three james bond movies and the third would have paid ninety nine thousand nine hundred ninety two ninety three but they post strachey went out for the new timothy dalton movie at that time but which i thought was going to occur at the one thousand nine hundred cannes film festival at that time albert broccoli the producer party company richard mabel also director john glenn so he's looking for directors and the production for the movie. The new movie that never occurred was going to start in one thousand nine hundred hong kong for release in one thousand nine hundred ninety one it would have featured a terrorist attack on british nuclear facility in scotland threatening to cause world war three so it was the essence of bombers traveling to east asia to investigate corrupt businessman's henry lee and also joe fish chang. Connie web and also bond was fighting with his former mental debt. Hong crisp it would also be featured The chinese ministry state security as part of that and there was a scene of a cyber attack on scotland and bond failing in the mission in libya and this was the essence of the script. And i mean dolton declared. I think in two thousand ten. They're even token to directors ready to go but in nineteen ninety. Mgm was sold for one point five billion to clinics and australian american finance services. The started making television programs. Kleenex couldn't provide fifty million letter of credit. So the deal fell apart and the french company called papa. Entertainment quickly moved into by mgm for one point. Two billion emerged companies create md empathy. Communications party peretti intended to sell off the distribution rights to the studios catalogs who could collect advance payments to finance buyout. And this including the broadcasting rights to w seven they didn't danjaq. You've made the bomb films. Many many years to sue at this was the this is what caused. This is why the chinese themed world war three nuclear facility. Terrorist attack never happened. The movie never happened with dalton and this went home for about two or three years and at that point delta state delay. The film ended his contract in one thousand nine hundred so peers. Brodmann took took the pace so his brosnan was basically all chocolate box. Bond as i said earlier in the podcast he had been considered as early as for your eyes. Only octopussy living daylights. He was tied up with remington steele but he was finally available to play bond. And i think in many people's minds. I mean you look. People have an image of jesus christ middle eastern long bid for many people in in the minds. I when they think of bond they think that pierce brosnan has a looks of bombed. If you imagine that's what he looks like biz brosnan many minds this sort of jesus christ it bonds now. There's a controversial comment. I don't think he's the best bond but he certainly looks like james bond. He's a chocolate box. on these. The milk tray man. Bond as i said yesterday podcast and my mother mother doors him golden. I was a movie from bungee jumping off the top of the world's largest dam at the beginning to chase in a train. I mean you had shown being who'd been considered as bombed as well. I mean i know. There was many people who auditioned to be bombed at the time. I mean they always had browsing mind. Granted auditioned to be bombed and imagine money who had been on absolute how to say. The words miss moneypenny. A very terrible goose. You know just just seeing me boy. You girl standing in front of you saying that i love you. Yeah he crop would work does bond but He was considered but pierce brosnan. The chocolate box got apart in a rip roaring nineteen ninety-five movie. It was fantastic yet.

Yeah, so as long as we breathe and we don't freak out, then we're going to get through it. It's happened.

Were you ever afraid to feel when you stepped into the CEO role? And if so, do you have any advice for those entrepreneurs? So being a finance person by background? I think you're always kind of playing devil's advocate and and a lot of time, especially like if you think Coming up. As an auditor. You're always looking for kind of like what's wrong with the potential and I think that's that's fine to a certain extent. It's probably kept their species along alive for a really long time Conservatives up But it is not how you progress, so I think it's always nice to have a healthy balance of that of professional skepticism, but at the same time to you have to be bullish on your beliefs or otherwise, you're never going to take chances and you're never going to really change. Whatever you're trying to do in your particular industry, so figuring out that kind of right balance and knowing yourself and knowing, Hey, I'm I'm more conservative by nature, and therefore I need to make myself uncomfortable. Or if you're a little bit too wild and then being able to kind of use that conservatism a little bit more and bring that out. Absolutely.

"Guest today is Joe Fish CEO and CFO of Wine Access Joe. Thanks so much for joining us today for thanks for having me really appreciate it. So for those who are unaware about you and your entrepreneurial journey, give us some background and what led you to be the CEO and CFO of wine access. It's probably a little bit more unconventional than than the rest of your guests. I actually start off as an auditor for Price Waterhouse Cooper. So when you think about road CEO. It's about as far from type CEO as you can think of. After that, I had actually moved into our transaction services groups are really working on mergers and acquisition advisory get a little bit more to kind that finance realm and then ultimately ultimately landed at Ghirardelli Chocolate Company. That's where I kind of got the thirst for business development. Really being able to figure out new offerings to drive value for consumers and about two years ago ended up at one accesses CFL and More recently moved into CEO Amazing and I'm sure you're positioning Gary Deli really helped you kind of get into the CEO role. What kind of do you think that helped? You're? Absolutely so I think any time you're working in kind of retail and consumer products that really helps So at the end of the day for not delivering value to the consumer, you're not striking. You know, an emotional connection with the product. You're probably not going to have a very good offering so tremendous amount of learning. They're working sales marketing operations. You name it's a really You know, allowed me to to get a lot of experience in that area, and what was the founding vision of line access? It's so funny enough about it would be about 2025 years ago, Wine Access actually started as a Web hosting platform for brick and mortar retail stores, as well as one publication, So it wasn't even an online retailer and over time the founder. Phenomenal content, phenomenal developing content really start to figure out. You know what we do We have this expertise and technology and wine. We have amazing relationships because we've been working with these brick and mortar retail stores for a very long time. I think that we could probably do it on our own and and the team came up with the idea When you're looking at the barrier to the world's greatest wines. The barrier isn't in fact price, but it's access. And that's exactly what really started wine access. And hence the name amazing and tell me about the exclusive wines that line access offers and what kind of varieties are being offered. So one of which we actually have on the table here, if your secrecy so this one is a it was beautiful. Partnership with wine maker by the name of Julia Fayard. He has been producing wines in the Napa Valley for a very long time. Lopes pro blue Covert, Is there so one of his wines actually really well on our platform called the Petion, where at Bouchon and Yonville celebrating, So we're celebrating for drinking champagne, and then we throw the idea out there. Julian, How would you like to do an exclusive partnership that we threw it out there kind of jokingly not thinking that he'd want to do it and then said Absolutely. I love the idea. But it has to be phenomenal, and we said that we would do nothing less than that. And so that that represents from one of the exclusive partnerships that we do a lot of other passion projects with other winemakers. Uh Britt Nickels and right, Richards We worked with Louisville it or who is a producer of Burgundy. Now, while the we're not 100% exclusive with them, they do make exclusive labels for us and just for the line access members a lot more we can go into. We don't have a ton of time, but I encourage everyone to take a look on the platform and and see what exclusives we have online access. And how many bottles of why don't you say you drink a week? So I would so between drink Probably Maybe 1 to 2. If you count spitting like for tasting been a lot more. Yeah, Amazing. And you joined by an access in 2017. What has it been like watching the company grow Well, it's been an absolutely amazing experience. At the time that I came on board. We're moving a lot of our operations from the East Coast to the West Coast. So In a sense, we had a pretty new team. Uh, but it's been absolutely phenomenal. Being able to see the new wine team come together, bringing in some absolutely phenomenal e commerce talent on the West Coast as we have over that an overwhelming number of the wine access Excuse me, the overwhelming number of e commerce talent and San Francisco and in Seattle. And really being able to see them gel and come together and it's been. It's been really a blessing to see everyone do that. And what is it? What was it like kind of stepping into the CEO role? Because that's kind of a lot of pressure. You're overseeing this company that's been around for a while. What was that transition like? It's definitely It's definitely a tough one, especially to when it's first time CEO. Most of time You come up your career either in finance or marketing or operations, and you're really good at that functional expertise. And then you're stepping into a role in mature overseas night. Six potentially six different departments where you don't have that functional expertise, so it's always a challenge and a balance of how do I really immerse myself into those into those different functions? Still going to find at 50,000 ft to lead the lead the organization, so I think that's why it's so important in evaluating talent, identifying talent and really trusting your people to execute the vision and speaking of people. How important would you say company culture is to the success of your business? I mean, it's everything. Yeah, it's it's we put out 33 wines a day three offers a day. So sometimes I kind of feel like we're a trading floor. With the amount of activity that's going on. We'll have offers going.

Bordeaux's Chateau Margaux, Lafite Luton. I've done a number of events with the first growths where we're bringing them in into San Francisco to meet with our pipe members and deliver really memorable experience. That's amazing. And if you go back in time and give yourself kind of one piece of advice As you were transitioning into the CEO roll. What would you tell yourself? It's probably the bad days aren't as bad as they seem, and the good days aren't as good as they see. So there's days where Wind's held up it at customs. A feature got launched them website and it's not working exactly the way we want running in tow, other operational issues, and for the most part we get through it.

So for those who are unaware about you and your entrepreneurial journey, give us some background and what led you to be the CEO and CFO of wine Access? Yes, It's probably a little bit more unconventional than than the rest of your guests. I actually started off as an auditor. For PricewaterhouseCoopers. So when you think about road to CEO, it's about us. Far from kind CEO is you could think of. After that I had actually moved into our transaction services group. So really working on mergers and acquisition advisory getting a little bit more into kind that finance realm on then I ultimately ultimately landed at Ghirardelli Chocolate Company.

What kind of do you think that helped? You were? Absolutely So I think any time you're working in kind of retail consumer products that really helps So at the end of the day for not delivering value to the consumer, you're not striking. You know, an emotional connection with the product. You're probably not going to have a very good offering s o tremendous amount of learning. They're working with sales marketing operations. You name it's a really allowed me to get a lot of experience in that area. And what was the founding vision of line access? That's a funny enough about it would be about 2025 years ago, Wine access actually started as a Web hosting platform for brick and mortar retail stores as well as wine publications. So wasn't even an online retailer on overtime. The founder, phenomenal content, phenomenal developing content. Really start to figure out. You know what we do We have this expertise and technology and wine. We have amazing relationships because we've been working with these brick and mortar retail stores for a very long time. I think that we could probably do it on our own and and the team came up with the idea when you're looking at the barrier to the world's greatest wines, you know the barrier isn't in fact price, but it's access. And that's exactly what really started wine access. And hence the name amazing and tell you about the exclusive wines that line access offers.

"Austin's new radio. Thank you, Madison. Roger's very much. Madison is on newsroom duty tonight, and we're going to talk about Problems for restaurants. I think Mayor Walsh just mentioned that some 3500 restaurants have closed up here in Massachusetts, and who knows how many if any of them will ever reopened. Before we get to my guests just just accept the table here yesterday. Governor Baker issued some orders that well may not affect you and me personally, But if you're a restaurant owner Think how you would have reacted to this comment on this order from the governor yesterday cut 97 Rob. Today's announcement also includes strength and guidance. For masks in certain locations and activities, including gems. Office spaces and restaurants. Restaurants will also be required to reduce table size from 10 people to six per party. Must serve 90 minutes time limits for dining. Those air Maura restrictions on restaurants. It's been a tough year for restaurants here in Massachusetts, and with me on the phone is the owner of four restaurants. Jim Dietz, Jim, Welcome to night side. How are you? Great, Dan. Thanks for having me on. Let's talk a little bit about your restaurants. As I understand. You got a couple in north end over and isn't a couple in in reading. Yes, not running so to joke to Joe Fish locations, one in north and overwhelmed north riding. Have the loft at two knots and over And then those global's, which is in north, reading those four restaurants in our little group. Okay, so you know again. I know you're not looking for advertising here, but just to give it give us some perspective on it. Um, the loft is in north and over. Tell us a little bit about that. What type of is that? You know, in American American restaurant or what does one of your old one steaks, chops, comfort food That's been there since 1978. I've owned it for about 16 17 years, and it's kind of like the place to go in town, you know? It sounds like in North reading. It's a Mexican Friday. Yep, I have dose Lobos in north riding, along with the joke fish. They're also I'm assuming that I've never had the pleasure of being in any of the restaurants, but I'm sure they're I'm sure they're good. I'm guessing the Joe Fish restaurants of fish restaurants, right? Yes, They are. All right way. Have chicken in steaks, too, but mostly primarily fish. Um, table fish. Okay, so now Um, you Kind of grew up in this industry as I understand it, and you move around the country, But you came to Massachusetts. When did you either? Come on, Come back to Massachusetts. What you're It was the early nineties, I was chasing a job from New York to Boston, and that was it worked downtown in Boston. I worked with legal sea foods and the ultimate Oh, group. Um there was in the area the time And I've just been doing this my whole life. And so you made a decision at some point that hey, it's not the work of somebody. I'll invest my own hard earned money and maybe slowly but surely by restaurant and maybe in by two or three. I figured if I was gonna work this heart of mine will do for myself. Nothing wrong with that, Okay? Described to me this year beginning in sometime in March. Obviously it's been. It's been a rough year, but you have tried and have been been pretty successful. In staying, if not ahead of the curve, at least not to know not too far behind the curve. Give me some eggs. The example the extra expenses. We'll deal with the revenue loss in a moment, but just some of the extra expenses. That you have had to incur to make your restaurants up to the to the circumstances and the and the demands that the government's making. T someone up. It's just devastating for industry. That's just that's just that the expense that you said we could talk about that. But you know you have the government coming out in March and saying that we're gonna close and we can only do take out only That seems reasonable cause we do take out anyway. 3% of my sales was take out prior and now I'm going to go to 100% take out No, it doesn't work that way. If you have to retool your whole restaurant, you've got a Bringing more paper supplies the additional costs, But now everything is going out on paper and plastic and even more so, So that's an additional costs. We are all the sudden you revenue. Linus is getting eaten up. And I should say your profit lines getting eaten up and you have to retrain your staff. Restock stuff. Stocking locations You have toe set up for take out in the restaurant tonight have multiple bags all over the place. So it was really about a two week learning curve in order to get take out down. Then we get to take out down going pretty good. And then in June, they offer us some outdoor seating. Well, that sounds pretty good to birdie tells us on a Friday that we can open on a Monday. Well, now I'm gonna get portents. All the permits Fire police building safety. Would help. Um, all the barriers that are required on your restaurant you for restaurants or as I understand that close to major roadway, So you not only need protection you don't have like a big field that you can just set up some tents in the backyard jersey barriers up at a cost for each jersey barrier. And you rent everything by the month. You know, it cost me you know, it's about $10,000 a month just to keep the outdoor open. And bring the four restaurants and so then along comes August and you decide what the winter's coming maybe they have. They're gonna put into a seating in. They're gonna give us some indoor seating. So now you have Take out Outdoor seating. Curbside pickup. Indoor seating and everything is limited. And you don't have the staff because they're all making the extra um, stimulus money. So you can't get your staff back fighting out of the end of July, right that it did. Yeah. Now.

We're celebrating drinking champagne, and then we throw the idea out there. Julian, How would you like to do an exclusive partnership with us? We throw it out there kind of jokingly not thinking that he'd want to do it and then said Absolutely. I love the idea. But it has to be phenomenal. And we said that we would do nothing less than that on so that that represents one of the exclusive partnerships that we D'oh. A lot of other passion projects with other winemakers, Brit Nickels and write Richards. We work with Luthor, who is a producer and burgundy. Now, while they were not 100% exclusive with them, they do make exclusive labels for us and just for the wine access members lot more we could go into. We don't have a ton of time by encourage everyone to take a look on the platform and see what exclusives we haven't won access. And how many bottles of wine would you say you drink a week? I would so between drink Probably maybe 1 to 2. If you count spitting, like for tasting a lot more amazing, and you joined by an access in 2017. What has it been like watching the company grow Well, it's been an absolutely amazing experience. At the time that I came on board were moving a lot of our operations from the East Coast to the West Coast. So in a sense, we have a pretty new team. But it's been absolutely not being able to see the new wine team come together, bringing in some absolutely phenomenal e commerce talent on the West Coast as we have over and overwhelming number of the wine access their excuse me the overwhelming number of e commerce talent. In San Francisco and Seattle and really being able to see them gel and come together and it's been. It's been really a blessing and Tio see everyone do that. And what is it? What was it like kind of stepping into the CEO role? Because that's kind of a lot of pressure. You're overseeing this company that's been around for a while. What was that transition like there's definitely is a tough one. Especially to when it's first time CEO most the time you've come up your career either in finance or marketing operations, and you're really good at that functional expertise, and then you're stepping into a role in which your overseas six potentially six different departments where you don't have that functional expertise. Eso is always a challenge in a balance of how do I really immersed myself into those into those different functions? Still kind of flying at 50,000 Ft. Teo lied Thie early the organization and I think that's why it's so important and evaluating talent, identifying talent and really trusting your people to execute the vision. And speaking of people. How important would you say company culture is to the success of your business? I mean, it's everything. It's it's we put out 33 wines today three offers a day. So sometimes.

In addition, that not everyone actually makes the cut is our wine teammate taste over 20,000 wines and infraction. Those will actually make the make the cut. So we're really, really strict on making sure that the price of quality ratio is there and there may be some absolutely phenomenal wines that we tasted save. We've loved offer these, but we don't really think that the price of quality ratios there and as a result, it won't make it onto the platform.

I've done a number of events with the first growths where we're bringing them in in the San Francisco to meet with our V, I P members and and deliver really memorable experience. That's amazing. And if you go back in time and give yourself kind of one piece of advice as you're transitioning into the CEO roll, what would you tell yourself? It's probably the bad days aren't as bad as they seem, and the good days aren't as good as they seem. So they're Thursday's where winds held up at customs a feature got launched a website and it's not working exactly the way we want. Running into the other operational issues, and for the most part we get through it so as long as we breathe and we don't freak out, then we're going to get through it. It's happened mistakes that happened before and will be the first time and it won't be the last Andi even on the good days, and we want to celebrate our victories, but the same time if we have a great day, we still gotta do again tomorrow. Still gotta do it the next day in the next week Amazing and a lot of entrepreneurs are afraid of failure and that kind of Stop him from starting a business or pursuing their passion. Were you ever afraid to feel when you stepped into the CEO role? And if so, do you have any advice for those entrepreneurs? So being a finance person by background? I think you're always kind of playing devil's advocate and a lot of time, especially if you think Coming to visit as an auditor. You're always looking for kind of like what's wrong with potential and I think that's that's fine to a certain extent is probably kept her species along a really long time conservatives, but it is not how you progress, so I think that it's always nice to have a healthy balance of that a professional skepticism, But at the same time, too, you have to be bullish on your beliefs or otherwise, you're never going to take chances and you're ever going to really change. Whatever you're trying to do in your particular industry s O figure out that kind of right balance and and knowing yourself and knowing. Hey, am I more conservative by nature, and therefore I need to make myself uncomfortable. Or if you're a little bit too wild and then being able to kind of use that conservatism a little bit more. Bring that out. Absolutely. I'm excited to see where wine accesses the next five or 10 years as a minor and thank you so much for the line, Joe. Such a pleasure to meet you. Likewise. Thank you Think this is business Rock stars? That was my amazing guest, Joe Fish CEO and CFO of mine access..

"Is business rock stars. I'm Britney Lehman and my guest today is Joe Fish CEO and CFO of line Access Joe. Thanks so much for joining us today is for thanks for having me really appreciated. So for those who are unaware about you and your entrepreneurial journey, give us some background and what led you to be the CEO and CFO of wine access. It's probably a little bit more in conventional than the rest of your guests. I actually started off as an auditor. For PricewaterhouseCoopers. So when you think about road to Seo it's about as far from Osias you could think of. After that I had actually moved into our transaction services groups are really working on mergers and acquisition advisory getting a little bit more into kind that finance round. Andan. I ultimately ultimately landed at Ghirardelli Chocolate Company. That's where it kind of got that thirst for business development. Really being able to figure out new offerings, T drive value for consumers, and about two years ago ended if it one accesses a CFO. More recently moved into the CEO. Amazing, and I'm sure your position and Gary Delhi really helped you kind of get into the CEO role. What kind of do you think that helped? You are? Absolutely. So I think any time you're working in kind of retail and consumer products that really helps So at the end of the day for not delivering value to the consumer, you're not striking, you know an emotional connection with the product. You're probably not gonna have a very good offering so tremendous amount of learning their working with sales marketing operations, you name. It really allowed me to get a lot of experience in that area. And what was the founding vision of wine access? There's a funny enough about it would be about 2025 years ago. Wine Access actually started as a Web hosting platform for brick and mortar retail stores as well as wine publications. So it wasn't even an online retailer. On overtime. The founder, phenomenal content, phenomenal developing content really start to figure out. You know what we do We have this expertise and technology and wine way have amazing relationships because we've been working with these brick and mortar retail's stores for a very long time. I think that we could probably do it on our own and and the team came up with the idea. When you look at the barrier to the world's greatest wines, the barrier isn't in fact, a price, but it's access. And that's exactly what really started wine access, Convince the name amazing and tell you about the exclusive wines that line access offers and what kind of varieties there being so one of which we actually have on the table here, seeing So this one is a It was beautiful. Partnership with my maker by the name of Julius II art. He has been producing wines in the Napa Valley for a very long time. Lopes for Luke over there. So one of his lines actually really well on our platform called Lopes, and we're at Bouchon in Yonville celebrating. We're celebrating for drinking champagne, and then we throw the idea out there. Julian, How would you like to do an exclusive partnership with us? We throw it out there kind of jokingly not thinking that he'd want to do it and then said Absolutely. I love the idea. But it has to be phenomenal. And we said that we would do nothing less than that on so that that represents one of the exclusive partnerships that we D'oh. A lot of other passion projects with other winemakers, Brit Nickels and write Richards. We worked with Luthor, who is a producer in Burgundy. Now, while they were not 100% exclusive with them, they do make exclusive labels for us and just for the wine access members lot more we could go into. We don't have a ton of time. I encourage everyone to take a look on the platform and see what exclusives we haven't won access. And how many bottles of wine would you say you drink a week? I would so between drink Probably Maybe 1 to 2. If you count spitting, like for tasty and a lot more amazing, and you joined by an access in 2017. What has it been like watching the company grow Well, it's been an absolutely amazing experience. At the time that I came on board were moving a lot of our operations from the East Coast to the West Coast. So In a sense, we have a pretty new team, but it's been absolutely normal being able to see the new wine team come together, bringing in some absolutely phenomenal e commerce talent on the West Coast as we have over and overwhelming number of the wine access their excuse me the overwhelming number of e commerce talent. In San Francisco and Seattle and really being able to see them gel and come together and it's been. It's been really a blessing and Tio see everyone do that. And what is it? What was it like kind of stepping into the CEO role? Because that's kind of a lot of pressure. You're overseeing this company that's been around for a while. What was that transition like there's definitely is a tough one. Especially to when it's first time CEO most the time you've come up your career either, and finance or marketing operations, and you're really good at that functional expertise, and then you're stepping into a role in which your overseas six potentially six different departments where you don't have that functional expertise. Eso is always a challenge and a balance of how do I really immerse myself into those into those different functions? Still kind of flying at 50,000 Ft. Tio lead the early the organization, so I think that's why it's so important and evaluating talent, identifying talent and really trusting your people to execute the vision. And speaking of people. How important would you say company culture is to the six times of your business? I mean, it's everything. It's it's we put out 33 wines today three offers a day. So sometimes I kind of feel like we're trading floor with the amount of activity is going on will have offers going live and getting ready to set up three for the next day and the day after. So there's this real sense of kind of hustle, camaraderie and teamwork. And if that's.

chocolate company that's where I kind of got the thirst for business development really being able to figure out new offerings to drive value for for consumers and about two years ago and if that one access as a CFO and more recently moved into the sea amazing and I'm sure you're positioning your Delhi really helped you kind of get into the E. overall what kind of do you think that helped you absolutely so I think anytime you're working in kind of retail consumer products that really help so at the end of the day for not delivering value to the consumer you're not striking him an emotional connection with the product you're probably not going to have a very good offering so tremendous amount of learning there working with sales marketing operations you name it to really you know allowed me to to get a lot of experience in that area and what was the founding vision of line access as a funny enough about it would be about twenty twenty five years ago Y. axis actually started as a web hosting platform for African mortar retail stores as well as one publication so wasn't even an online retailer in overtime the founder Sinama contests and I'm not developing content really start to figure out you know what we do we have this expertise in technology and wine we have an amazing relationship she has been working these brick and mortar retail stores for a very long time I think that we could probably do it on our own and and the team came up with the idea and when you're looking at the the barrier to the world's greatest wines and that is that the is in fact price but it's access and that's exactly what really started line access contents the name Mazinger and tell me about the exclusive wines that wine access offers and what kind of varieties are being so one of which we actually have on the table here and you're seeing this one is a it was a beautiful partnered with that my major my name is released by our TV has been producing wines in the napa valley for a very long time look kisha perlu covert as there so one of his wives action in real Lee well on our platform called P. shin where at the shop on any on sale celebrating so we're we're celebrating our drinking champagne and then we throw the idea out there truly and how would you like to do an exclusive partnership with us we threw it out there kind of jokingly not thinking that he'd want to do it and I said absolutely I loved the idea but it has to be phenomenal and we said that we would do nothing less than that and so that that that represents come one of the exclusive partnerships that we do a lot of other passion projects with other wine makers Nichols and right Richards we work with Luthor who is a producer Burgundy now while they were not a hundred percent exclusive with them they do make exclusive labels for us and just for the line access members what more we can go into we don't have the kind of time I encourage everyone to take a look on the platform and and see what expenses we have a wide access and how many bottles of wine when you say you drink a week so between three probably maybe one to two if you count stating like for taste in a lot more yeah amazing and you join line access and twenty seventeen yes what is it been like watching the company grow well it's been an absolutely amazing experience at the time that I came on board we're moving a lot of our operations from the east coast to the west coast so you know in a sense we had a pretty new team but it's been an absolute phenomenon being able to see the new appointing come together bringing in some absolutely phenomenal e-commerce talent on the west coast as we have a lot an overwhelming number of the Y. axis excuse me the overwhelming number of the E. commerce talent in San Francisco and and Seattle and really be able to see them gel and come together and it's it's been it's been really a blessing and see everyone do that and what is it what was it like kind of stepping into the CEO role because it's kind of a lot of pressure you're overseeing this company it's been around for a while what was that transition like this definitely is a tough one yeah especially to win its first time CEO most of time you've come up your career either in finance or marketing or operations and you're really good at that functional expertise and then you're stepping into a role mature overseen six potentially six different apartments where you don't have that functional expertise so it's always a challenge and a and a balance of how do I really immersed myself into those into those different functions but still confined at fifty thousand feet to leave the leave the organization I think that's why it's so important in evaluating talent identifying talent and really trusting your people to execute the vision and speaking of people how important would you say company culture is to the success of your business I mean everything yeah it's it's we put out three three wines today three offers a day so sometimes I can feel like we're trading floor with the amount of activity is going on we'll have offers going live in and getting ready to step three for the next day and the day after so there's this real sense of kind of hustle camaraderie in in team work and if that's not fair like it's really going to fall apart so again I I always say that people are everything and if we're fortunate to have what I think are the best people in business and and and really get like I said really feel blessed to be able to work with them each and every day and how much wine access is different from the competition sure so when we look at kind of the the retail space specifically talking direct to consumer wine and we're not trying to offer everyone on the planet like a wine dot com or even that I can now no it's really it's a tightly curated last we will put an offer out each day and then within our our retail store we may only have forty to fifty wines and and our focus is really around content and storytelling we sit down with the wine makers of many times in their home you hear their story really understand why that line is absolutely phenomenal in addition that not everyone actually makes the cut R. Y. teaming taste over twenty thousand wines and an extraction those will actually make the atlas you make the cut so we're really really strict on making sure that the price of quality ratios there there may be some absolutely phenomenal lines that we take we'd love to offer these but we don't really think that the price to quality ratio is there and as a result it won't make it until and what are some of the key examples of relationships that wine access has to top wine producers so one that we've loved working with.

"As a teacher in various countries and then I did. In Education and International Development Spent a few years working across Africa doing various education projects. During that time I felt more aligned to whacking with nature and couldn't help but notice the way that these places I'd seen were changing in and the way that the introduction and the growth of industrial civilization was destroying them was destroying the natural parts of them so I was reminded decently about having you know flying across Malaysia and seeing palm oil plantations and just really seen it fast hand now. I am where I am. Sounds like a good introduction to the world of restoration. What are the ecosystem restoration camps? And how did that get started? Ecosystem restoration comes is a man of organizations and individuals and projects who will want to collaborate on how to restore degraded land by natural in agriculture. Land it's a collaborative effort by different parties that are sharing knowledge sharing experience sharing resources one another to restore degraded land on earth or the projects discreet. And focus on a timeline or are they ongoing and do they continue to build on each other? They are ongoing. Yeah we don't have any that. Have a clear end in sight. You will get to a point where natural succession has taken over in this lot left for humans today but then the camps just actors education centers where people can guy and land the theory of how to restore land and see the results of it and understand have understood the the various stages behind what was done there. So I guess it could get to the point where a place is really healthy again. But then there's so much to be done a nice places to explain the price ass and to teach people about it so that can replicate elsewhere. And how many sites do you have worldwide? We went with twenty three partners. We won't to By the end of the year and year ago we had to is going quite fast. Yeah that's scaling up exponentially. Yeah it's really needed. It feels like this is the time threat. The Great Work of our time as Jones says only thirty nine. Am I just or Nicer Years? Is that maybe not so? Does it involve people from all walks of life or is it mainly just campers going into experiences for the first time or is it experienced restoration? It's a it's a broad range. I guess the main groups you could say hey the people that have owned land and would like to make it healthier but really know how or maybe on that journey but would like to non more or people that want to buy the Rhineland to birth live on and to be surrounded by life united they would like to learn how other people who've done theoretical learning in this field like PD's not so if you want to put that knowledge into practice you have young people who are not sure they won't do with career in the interested to do something to sustainability on they want to have a meaningful fund social experience less people hitting sabbaticals from and have what offices to that year's and just really want to get out into the weld decent thing with the hands. Yeah Broad Range Nice. Sounds like a good opportunity for a business retreat for people. I WANNA give back. Yeah that's in. The in. The pipeline is their main source of degradation that translates between all the sites or is it kind of site specific and you deal with a lot of different conditions. Do you mean other cools is of degradation? The Same Greg's broadly speaking yes Maine. 'cause is agriculture done in a way that is degrading landover time rather than generating it a lot of industrial agricultural industrial. Thinking in agriculture is based on continuously. Taking rather than putting something back. Both they do put something back. It's synthetic is plowing overgrazing vegetating. Leading the so bad which then kills off the microbial life and then you need to spray synthetic fertilizes which further degrade it then. There's no soul life. Which means that. You'll get pests so then you need to spray pesticides. And it's just a downwards feedback leap until the point where it's desertified in lot of cases whether that being somewhere that has low of rain or dozen days are the main drivers all of the camps really and then in other places you have stuff like trees being chopped down for firewood or charcoal in countries where people don't have any other alternative forms of fuel that himes say policy related one of the camps has been degraded by sand mining that's a mining agriculture and poverty of the three main causes the in all cases. Anyway I noticed there was one somewhat nearby me in California. The paradise the side of the catastrophic wildfire that took out a large community. Maybe one day I can go and see that that'd be interesting. You should. Yeah that still finding their feet because they came together in a in a big rush off to the fires in those low seventies Manal. They're getting more stable in whacking at how they're gonNA run as an ongoing organization. What makes a movement different from other organizations is that we don't like to say nine to anyone who wants to joy and that means that there are a lot of varying levels of preparedness and expertise and establishment so on our website. We have two types of camp we have a seedling. An established categories. And they will tell you how our long the campaign is in terms of resources in capacity and that sort of thing but the beauty of it is is that if a campus still in the ceiling phase it means you could have the opportunity to get invoked at the beginning and to play a key role in helping develop rather than you discussing in. Someone's providing you with the service and the new leave sets vary created a nonsense which. I really love so many rail so in these camps is it mainly focused on ecological processes and habitat restoration or is there examples of involving the community and trying to find ways to make their livelihoods more sustainable and some comes they Introducing ways that the land can be restored and people can or regenerative living at the same time said come. Sadat transitioning supporting local people to transition from damaging agriculture to regenerate Forestry for example with waking up a project proposal now for That we would like to work with to train them on how to femme fish on. Joe Fish in Kelp generously its habitat creation forest management. That sort of thing. But then it's say how can we regenerate this piece of land whilst helping local people make living in an increase in enhance food security at the same time? You can't really do one without the other unless the local community are able to make a living from restoring land than they're going to try to make a living from destroying not actively but just because they don't know of another way. Yeah that makes sense. The pure ecological restoration practices are usually kind of by first world countries. That have the money and time to do so a lot of the time. They don't think about the hardships of other communities. That might not be in that position. Nicole sedation model where you have paid pieces of land where no one is really allowed in or no one lives there and you just go in as a tourist in Naven. Then that means that this land is conserved unser. The rest of it isn't going to be conserved it will probably will be destroyed whereas.

"Tired of usual, go to jail peanut butter and jelly sandwiches or just getting pretty boring. Well, then dying have you considered peanut butter and jelly fish sandwich. Joey fish, I know that in some places such as self East Asia, they're eating dried or pickled. But I'm not sure that tastes so great in my sandwich. Besides jellyfish don't offer much nutritional content and ninety five percent water. That's not a lot of calories though, that I'm thinking about it does anything actually hunt and eat jellyfish for a long time. Scientists didn't really think so. But new research is showing that these gelatinous creatures are pray for a surprising number of animals surprising. Joe fish don't have much nutrition dangerous, and I've never seen. Anything hunt a jellyfish? Then you said watch some pretty neat video that scientists captured in twenty seventeen. They put cameras on the backs of four species of penguins turns out the penguins actively hunted jellyfish. Even when other prey was available. Well, I make sense jellyfish would be easy to catch and with no bones or exit skeleton. They would be easy to digest two. That's definitely one current hypothesis. It might explain why penguins and also octopuses see cucumbers, tuna leatherback turtles albatrosses and ocean. Sunfish eat so many of them, and we know this because jellyfish like all pray leave a chemical signature in the predators. That heat them, which researchers are now studying additionally, scientists confined praise DNA in the feces of its predator all this has led to the new find that jellyfish are a popular food source was moment of science comes from Indiana University.
