We're going to cut all this funding right. You're not gonna be able to make money when louisville's able to like it's how they have like fucking money right they can be like nah. It's fine. we have conventions we had the derby like we have the like bourbon. Distilleries like people are coming here and spending their money and that means we can use that money to reinvest in our school so we're going to protect our citizens. They don't quite have enough of that like they kind of do but they don't really and so. I think that louisville can really become a place where that tourism money and also the money from the industries that we have in louisville a lot of which does come from the bourbon industry. But i really think tourism is a big place where we can have an impact. And that's part of why. I spend so much time talking about lethal hyping it up like talking about on blog because if you go and you spend that money in louisville and you spend it at black businesses and you spend it at locally owned places that money is getting reinvested in the community and louisville is a beautiful wonderful and progressive place with its problems that needs to be fixed but it is a place where it's worth it to go and invest that money in and it is so important any red state that has a little dot of blue and a city of blue. That is so important so a lot of the places that are talk about savannah. Georgia you know places like that It's a similar kind of issue.

I want you to know that what happens to her. In many ways does reflect this really ugly dark racist history of louisville. The legal that. I know and the reason why i wanted to do a podcast episode talking about my hometown. Louisville is a progressive place. It is a place that always votes blue. Even when the rest of kentucky is voting read it is a place that is lgbtq friendly. It is a place that is a haven for the arts. It's the place that self identifies as a sanctuary for immigrants and refugees. Even though you kind of have to get permission like it's not like like an actual title because you have to get that from the state and usually the kentucky governor is not democratic right. Now he is anyway that's a tangent but itself in. Nfl is as a sanctuary and it is really a welcoming and loving place but it has a very dark and ugly History of racism and segregation. That for a long time needed to be corrected. And i'm i'm choosing to be optimistic. That this is the moment that we will finally tackle that project together and move forward and become a place where it's not just an acknowledged truth that everything west of a certain street is where the black people live. Like i don't want that for the future level that that i like my hometown that i love so much i want it to be a much more progressive place. So that's that's my hope.

"So white students ended up attacking buses of black students with bricks starting fires and organizing rallies the mayor of the time to clear the urban renewal plans were to drive black people from downtown to prevent it from becoming as he puts it a black belt so weird terminology louisville has since embraced integration. On paper. i would say. I think pretty much. Most of the people that you'll meet in louisville that are talking about redlining. This kind of thing would definitely identify as progressive and as anti racism and anti redlining and that kind of thing but it's been embedded in louisville for so long. I mean literally. It's in the streets. There are certain streets leading into small town out. That are all one way because it makes it that you can't get in or out easily. It's like the entire town is designed to be racist and so even though now sentiment has changed there is so much work to be done to undo all of that i mean the effects of previous segregation ordinances and redlining linger. Today like you said like the west end still lack proper grocery store buses from that have a townhouse to take these roundabout routes which means the west westerners have to sit on transit. Longer ones actually use the public transportation and that deters them from looking for jobs in like the more upscale eastern. Because they're like. I don't want to be on a bus for two hours. Really are public transportation lacking basic city services are passed down the line as like the west end of the us. And we'll get to it. We'll get to it and the area has just over police and underserved. And there's just like a whole stigma around the neighborhood ray even those like how like quote unquote like woke people. I talked about who self identify as being anti racism they're still like sketched out by the west end. They'll say that it's dangerous. Even parts of town like old level which is a beautiful area. One of my favorite neighborhoods in louisville. It has some like halfway houses. And because when you're walking around in old louisville he you'll see like non white people a lot of people who wouldn't identify as racist will say like oh. I've heard that area's really dangerous looking critically about it. It's just because they see the police in people think that like the more cops. There are the more crime there has to be was a language about certain parts of level that is deeply and like historically racist. And i think we're only just now getting to a moment in time where that racism is being illuminated and brought up too late for us all to look at and think about and how it is actually systemic. And what we all have. We're going to have to basically remove all those barriers so our current mayor greg fischer and he actually commissioned this report on redlining. He's actually like since he started since he was elected. He's been trying to kind of uncover this dark past and the truth about legal that it's historically and currently geographically segregated and that all of these past and presently billions have been denied and withheld opportunities based on where they live And so he was working on this big development project in the west end.

"I mean we live in a post racial society. Mlk solved racism. Desegregation efforts in the seventies were met with fury from many white legal residents in response to busing which was an approach that schools took to basically desegregate by bringing black children from certain neighborhoods and bussing them into white schools in other neighborhoods to like help like integrate. So white students ended up attacking buses of black students with bricks starting. Fires and organizing rallies. The mayor of the time to the urban renewal plans were to drive black people from downtown to prevent it from becoming as he puts it a black belt so weird terminology. Louisville has since embraced integration on paper. I would say. I pretty much. Most of the people that you'll meet in louisville that are talking about redlining. This kind of thing would definitely identify as progressive and as anti racism and anti redlining and that kind of thing but it's been embedded in louisville for so long i mean literally it's in the streets. There are certain streets leading into small town out. That are all one way because it makes it that you can't get in or out easily. It's like the entire town is designed to be racist and so even though now sentiment has changed there is so much work to be done to undo all of that i mean the effects of previous segregation ordinances and redlining linger today. Like you said like the west end still lack proper grocery store buses from that have a townhouse to take these roundabout routes which means the west westerners have to sit on transit longer. Ones actually use the public transportation and that deters them from looking for jobs in like the more upscale eastern. Because they're like. I don't want to be on a bus for two hours. Really are public transportation lacking basic city services are passed down the line as like the west end of the us. And we'll get to it. We'll get to it and the area has just released and underserved. And there's just like a whole stigma around the neighborhood ray even those like how like quote unquote like woke people. I talked about who self identify as being anti racism they're still like sketched out by the west end. They'll say that it's dangerous. Even parts of town like old level which is a beautiful area. One of my favorite neighborhoods in louisville. It has some like halfway houses. And because when you're walking around in old louisville he you'll see like non white people a lot of people who wouldn't identify as racist will say like oh..

"Not regular woodford. It has to be the double oaks because they put it back in the barrel and it gets sweeter makers marcus my cooking bourbon. Yes except for me is too sweet. So that's a desert bourbon. I like blanton's with food that's true. That's accurate i will also say that rabbit hole distillery send us a bottle recently and we've sipping on that one and it's real good and it's also there distilleries based in the heart of louisville which is pretty cool also thank you thanks rabbit hole. Icu point though about dessert bourbon. And i'd like to raise you to the fact that i actually prefer to only eat bourbon as dessert in the form of bourbon balls. That's true also. A good point. Is that bourbon. Plays a big role in food. Oh yes yes it very much does in kentucky in general has an interesting melting pot of cultures in history so naturally the food reflects them not really native american crops blended with colonial staples and those mixed with food. The enslaved people brought from africa do mean like the story of southern cuisine. With a little sprinkling in of native american midwest influences like beer cheese like beer cheese So what are some classic dishes in. Lieu obviously beer cheese There's actually a beer. Cheese trail in kentucky. Still and i'm very disappointed a louisville thing. But it's a kentucky thing. So i guess i'll claim it there. We also do have. The most quintessential louisville dish is called hot brown Describing it it doesn't sound as good actually is but it's basically like this. Baked open face sandwich with turkey tomato bacon and like the. The sauce called moray saucers was kind of cheesy. And i know it doesn't sound go but i describe it but it's really good. And really fatty and like filling and reg you can find all over louisville but it was invented at the brown hotel. And that's where you can get the real deal and there's also like different spins on it like we had a nashville hot chicken version of it once it was really good So i didn't realize this but louisville invented pulled pork. You're welcome earth another one that you're famous for is burgu. I was hoping you wouldn't actually mentioned that one because gross yeah virgo is a southern stew. That for some reason is more popular in kentucky than anywhere else. A few places in kentucky do claim to be the burgu of the world as far as we know nobody else has stepped up to the plate to dispute that claim. Because why would they burgers. Got a weird name to match matches historically weird ingredients. It's supposed to be made with pretty much whatever meat you've got lying around. Yeah my mom who also grew up in louisville and is illegal expert just like me says that it used to be made with squirrels And i thought she was pulling my leg. But i did wikipedia it and apparently that is true. So that settles it. What's going to settle my stomach..

"You don't just shoot them when their legs break and so on and so forth we need to have more regulations like that in place when it comes to horse racing so i am very much in support of having those regulations making sure that it is safe. It's not one hundred percent there today but as a horse lover somebody who grew up around horses and loved it. That's where i would like to see. It got to and i definitely am a. I want to encourage everybody. Who wants to enjoy the derby to be a vocal participant in having those changes put into place so it is safe for the horses and for us all to enjoy. And i mean the proof is in the is in the results. I mean the the owners and the jockeys who consistently win and have these winning horses they are the ones who are held up as being like they really treat their horses well because like horses are very intelligent and they're not gonna fuck and run two minutes like the fastest fat secretary. If you're treating it like shit you know so. i think. There's a lot of parallels to with dog sledding like dogs lending only ethical if the company that you're going with treats their dogs well they do treat their dogs well. Those dogs are just thrilled to get out and run and like go like run across the snowy forests or whatever horses love running. They love being free and they love having a wide amount of land to gallop across rate. It's a shame that they are also kept as pets and kept in captivity when they used to able to roam free. But when you go like driving through bourbon country like you can. You'll pass by these big fields with horses like hanging out and having a blast and most horses retire when they're around like two or three after racing for a few years and they got to just enjoy these fields and Have a bunch of kids. That's kind of what if you're if you're a good racehorse that's what she ended up doing But so it's it's it really just depends..

"Next. I wanna talk about the thing. Anyone who has ever heard of kentucky has heard of the derby. yeah but derby. Why do you say that. No nothing is i meant kfc. But now i feel like my god okay. First of all. Kfc really like isn't a thing in louisville anymore than it is elsewhere. We don't like a kfc colonel. Sanders is buried in cave cemetery. But that's it. I've never been more disappointed in kentucky. Okay the derby okay. Lesson the kentucky. Derby is more than just the most exciting to men's sports ladies shirt. It culminates in the race but the weeks leading up to it are the derby festival which is arguably more fine. It's like this full-blown celebration. That's i think. More important than christmas or halloween in louisville for two weeks at the end of april the entire city is suddenly covered in bright colors and oversized hats and these like huge life size painted horse statues and like weird horse racing themed cocktail parties and food and even close schools. Like the friday before the derby's always on a saturday on the friday before is called oak. Stay and we all got off to school. Which i don't know why because like you can't legally go to the derby and gamble until you're over eighteen s one thousand percent for the teachers. Oh that actually makes a lot of sense as a fellow teacher. I appreciate that. I mean it was really fun getting left home alone like the friday before derby so that you know the whole like adult population could go gamble. That's the beginning of a horror film. True the derby faisal kicks off with thunder over louisville. Which is the largest fireworks display in north america. Really want tyler at acdc but copyright remember when we went and the entire like soundtrack for the thirty minutes of fireworks was just songs that had to do with thunder so excellent and then there's the food i remember the food fondly. The derby is when everyone visits louisville's so naturally restaurants put their best foot forward and offer all sorts of kentucky classic dishes and drinks speaking of gary. Drink a lot of bourbon. If you ever go yes. The mint julep is. The official drink of the derby and the old-fashioned is the official drink of louisville. Will take two of each please. You know what you're on your third bourbon you need to tell. What are you my wife. It's not like said he becomes like a big two week long party like new orleans. But it's more like there's just a lot of events like spread out across the two weeks after louisville. Okay so this is actually a really cute. There's a yoga event called name. There's not the to god. I'm not making this up. There's also a duck race called the kentucky derby. No i'm serious legal. Loves good word play. There's also party throughout the whole city. Oh and then. There's the kentucky steamboat race with the belle of louisville. And she she liked races along the river with these other hundred year. Old like the belle of cincinnati or whatever. It's called like every year. It's like this really long drawn out race because they're very slow and it's like who's going to win. This year is going to be the hundred year old belle of louisville or the hundred and five year old cincinnati whatever monies on bella luvell. She's traveled and further than any steamboat. In history you can't beat the though. I know also. She's prettier there. I thought parties throughout the whole city. leading up to the derby and they're like very swanky affairs. Can you guess who hosts the biggest celebrity party jennifer lawrence good But no i don't actually think she's cool enough to have her own house in louisville mayor fisher. No harlan sanders ghost..

"That is either way hashtag freebritney speaking of bourbon county. There's even a lively and ongoing debate on where the name bourbon comes from. I've never heard anybody debating that entire life. You are on different sub than i am. I'm just kidding. And i say that proudly i am so offended. Most people think it's from bourbon county kentucky however some history of student autos and historians believe the name evolved in new orleans and gets its name from the city's bourbon street bourbon street was named that because people drink whisky. They're not dude. Why would a street in louisiana itself after spirit from kentucky. Patriotism okay actually quick cyclist about hamilton. No okay a pair of brothers. From france that kentucky inns whiskey. Charred barrels would sell better to new orleans residents sense. It tasted a little more like french. Cognac people started asking for that whiskey from st and later bourbon whiskey. No matter what story you believe it was called bourbon whiskey until eighteen forty when it was just officially named bourbon. I think it came from kentucky. And i'm a credited kentucky and so it must be true all right whatever while its origins may be shrouded in myth. We do know that. In seventeen eighty three. Evan williams opened the first commercial distillery in kentucky and louisville whisky distilleries and innovation soon started popping up all over kentucky. After the whisky rebellion since kentucky distillers were not subject to federal laws at the time. What's the whiskey rebellion. That sounds awesome. Okay this is another side quest. I'm really excited about this. One all right whiskey. Distillers and farmers organized an uprising in pennsylvania in response to attacks on domestic spirits proposed by the ohio in d. yard hamilton. George washington led militia to disperse the rebellion. The first real test of the new government's ability to enforce federal law so in hamilton and cabinet battle number one when thomas. jefferson says imagine. We're going to happen when they try to our whiskey. This this is what happens. So i assume that hamilton to is going to be about lavelle the electric bugler too close to anyway included in this. New batch of whiskeys was the discovery of sour mash by dr james c crow. And what is now our favorite bourbon woodford reserve. Dupay play favorites. I'm sorry by the early eighteen hundreds. Everyone seemed to be making bourbon with approximately two thousand distilleries in kentucky alone. The people who aren't in kentucky that are still making urban. Why can you guys just stop. Can you can you just not. It's just embarrassing. This led to an interesting fact. Actually that year there were more distilleries and horses and kentucky than there were people in the united states.
