Shaniqua McClendon, Political Director for Crooked Media
"Geneva Mukundan welcome to the PODCAST. Thank you for having me. So tell me how did you come to work for crooked media because I think that I read that you were doing something completely different before you were working at the Obama Administration. And just kind of on a different path. Yeah. So it's the story. Always, it just was so simple how I got here that it doesn't even make sense but I was in graduate school I started in two thousand sixteen and my whole plan was to get out of politics completely I had been burnt out working on Capitol Hill and you know I just wanted to make some money for once you do not get paid a lot more on the hill. And I started to graduate school in fall of two, thousand, sixteen. So my first semester Donald Trump one and I just knew that. I couldn't get out of politics I felt like I had developed a skill set and I would feel I would go crazy if I was not using it to help get him out of office for years later. So now we're finally for years later. But you know as I was trying to discover what I wanted to do after school I knew I wanted to get a bit away from policy not because I don't like it I love policy but I realized working on the hill that if you don't have the right politicians in place, those policies are never going to be enacted so. You, know I thought. Okay. Where can I go? That will allow me to help elected good elected officials and so I told my friend that I either wanted to work at a media company or a company that had a lot of name recognition and could use their influence to increase civic engagement and so I told her this when she asked me what I wanted to do after school and then she sent me the Political Director job here at crooked and said Oh like this I said like literally this job So I applied to it Have you ever Newsham then after graduation I moved out here to start the job well. It's funny I was listening to you and we kind of the exact opposite kind of path because I was in an industry where it was making money I had a salary and. You know after trump won I decided to change my trajectory there a couple of other steps in between them. Fully in that direction, and now I don't have. So. It is the opposite. The opposite and I was just telling somebody the other day I was like you know we're down to the wire with the election I feel like. I haven't done enough and feeling guilty and they're like, well, you Kinda gave the job as we go. Yeah. That's right. I did do a big thing. What's it like there always wondered you know cricket media started it feels like the energy. There's kind of like the early days of a startup like twitter or something then skateboards and football tables instead anything like that. That is funny. You say that you now I only spent one day in the old office but. Office, was nothing like. Well know I don't know what those startups look like ours had the bathroom was in the kitchen how? God, and they could not use the bathroom. Guys were recording because you would hear the toilet slash in the. Studio. I heard stories about about mice, and so it was definitely like we are just getting our bearings but you know again, I only spent one day there and then we were moving over to the new office and our new offices. Beautiful. All now working from home you know we were starting to like finally fill it up. Yeah. It's just you know it's a really chill live I mean it's Chili's you can be working on politics. Coming from DC where everyday you know you had on like a suit or you address formerly, you can wear t shirts shorts to the office always you know at least three to five dogs running around the office. So you know we you know we watch things together. Some things are funny and tragic at the same time like watching trump give a speech but then you know We all watch the cavenaugh hearings together and you know not no parts of that were fun or entertaining it in any way. But I think being able to do all those things and you know they're important to our work but just being able to do all those things together has been great and specifically for me I'm used to being on the East Coast with people who? Lived in DC for seven years with people who care deeply about politics and that is not. You know what's happening in La at large, it's It's an entertainment industry town. So it's nice to have that space at work where we can all come together and Kinda obsess about these things
What was said in the Trump-Biden debate last night?
"Let's talk about what went down last night. Akilah quick first impression here. All right. So I was prepared for this debate to be just as annoying as the first one and generally speaking I don't think it was it was quieter and less interrupt. The mute button function was good for the majority of the first answers to the moderator's questions. By the end although senseless non sequiturs started creeping back in also say that the moderator last night Kristen Welker was way better like so far ahead of Chris Wallace several weeks ago you know she kept the candidates on topic she forged ahead with better more relevant questions whenever trump threatened to devolve into conspiracy theories and generally speaking she seemed comfortable being there. So that was the VIBE. But Gideon, let's talk about what trump did last night how would you describe what he had to say? Yeah I definitely agree that it was more toned-down but on the substance I, think trump still acts enlarge part like he's running into. Kept, trying to cast his opponent as a career politician and one who was corrupt he brought up that hunter suffer example, but it didn't quite and it was a little bit hard to follow, and that strategy allows him to evade questions about his own term as well as his vision for the future he failed for instance, offer coherent message on the biggest crisis of his presidency covert nineteen and he at times tried to make the Democratic ticket seem more to the left than it is trump. Seems to always have Bernie Sanders on the brain and several times. He came back to the same point about Biden being a longtime politician who hasn't gotten anything done. But there was at least one specific moment where the strategy failed and he pretty remarkable way by turn to the camera and said, the debate should be about the families of people watching and not what the two candidates were talking about and trump kind of fell into a trap with a terrible answer. Here's a clip of that. This isn't about there's a reason why he's. been up all this Malarkey. There's a reason for he doesn't WanNa talk about the the the substantive issues it's not about his family and my family it's about your family and your family's hurting badly if you're making less than if you're a middle class family, you're getting hurt badly right now you're sitting at the kitchen table this morning to decide what we can't get new tires their ball because we have. To wait another month or so or are we going to be able to pay the mortgage who's going to tell her? She can't go back to to community college there the decision making in the middle class families like I grew up in. Scranton claim they're in trouble we should be talking about your families but that's a last thing he wants to talk about I wanted to say I wanted to tell. Me What is it? Ten seconds Mr President go political stupid. Let's get off this China thing and then he looks the family around the table everything just a typical politician I see that's. Difficult politician. That's why I got elected that. Let's get off the subject of China let's talk around sitting around the table. Right come on Joe you. Okay. So if we're following the logic here, trump is coming off as saying I'm not a typical politician I don't care about your family. Almost. Literally, what he's getting at that moment along with one word trump backed away from raising the federal minimum wage were really out of sync with what's going on in the country among working families. So a Gila, what did you make of trump last night? So I mean personally, I'm not giving US seventy four year old man props for not screaming like an infant during a debate like he's been here long enough he I don't know how to act by now. But in terms of the content of his answers, there wasn't really much worth talking about like. You said trump didn't really WANNA talk about his record at all at one point. He did say that he takes responsibility for covert but then he immediately pivoted to the same old static about how everything is China's fault and other points he blamed. Democratic. Governors and criticized overall continued to downplay the virus saying that schools and businesses should fully reopen but he revealed no plan to deal with the spikes and infections. In fact, he claim that there is a vaccine that's ready and we'll be deployed in a few weeks wad squad we know
How the COVID-19 Pandemic Shed Light on the Digital Divide
"Today I'm happy to have with me two excellent guests to address I. Think a very significant issue that we've known about for a long time, but has become especially poignant during the pandemic, not as the digital divide. A lot of us have you know with some bumps along the way made a fairly smooth transition to living life onscreen. But there's a lot of folks out there who have not, and that is because they continue to be and before the pandemic, there were very large disparities between who had access to the types of tools necessary to live in this new virtual world and who had the. Skills and the background necessary to thrive world that looks like it will be more virtual in the future than in the past even when pandemic has passed the to talk about these trends, I've two terrific guests. Kimberly Bryant is the founder of Black Girls Code Jessica Rosenthal. Soul is a commissioner for the Federal Communications Commission and were I hope we will have a great robust discussion about these issues. Just, let me start with you the digital divide. It's very old term. It's been around a long time. What did we learn? That's knew about it from this pandemic. Well, thank you for having me ads on what's important now is that the digital divide has been exposed s pandemic. Because now, we see conclusively the hard truth that our nation's gapped in digital skills. Digital access is very real and very big. And if in Washington, we used to think about broadband Internet literacy as Nice to have this pandemic has proven that it is neat to have as a nation were online for school for education or work for health care for entertainment and so much more. We've got a recognize is that we are not going to live up to our civic and commercial potential. If we don't find a way to connect everyone in this country, you've talked about the homework gap as sort of like the analog to digital divide tell us about that and what we've learned about it and why it matters. Yes said being the before times before we are all in home there was this thing that was happening that I noticed, which was that teachers were increasingly assigning homework that require Internet access. But what I know from the FCC is that one in three households do not have broadband? and. So the kids who lived in those households in just fall into a digital divide they fell into a homework they could do their nightly schoolwork I mean when all of us were growing up, you know we need to paper and Pencil and a clean. Spot on the kitchen table around a desk, but you need Internet access now to successfully participate. In school and that digital divide on Homework Gab has just become clearer in this crisis we said millions of kids home and told them to go to virtual classrooms. But if you don't have Internet access, you're out of that virtual classroom and we know it because we've seen chilling pictures on social media of hid sitting outside of fast food restaurants with laptops just try to access free Wifi signal so. They can go to online school and I just think in the United States. Of America we should be able to come up with policies that closed at hallmark gap. So no child is offline. Thanks can let me turn to you for a moment obviously One of the things we know about the digital divide is that it's more pronounced among certain historically disadvantaged groups, including people of Color and women. Black Girls Code I believe was founded to address both those saints tell us a little bit about your organization if you could just to start out absolutely on. Thank you again for having me on black holes was down right here in the bay area where I am today in our goal is said, is to address this issue around diversity inclusion, any equity in the technology landscape our focus is really to target girls Monday represented communities so African American. Students Hispanic Students, American. Students who are traditionally disenfranchised from Tech rears which actually pay their are look at content can change the trajectory of families in. It's not communities. We do that by really interesting girls as. Young as seven all the way through eighteen plus the skills and technology and teaching them about coding robotics game development. CETERA. So really try to introduce them all the different assets of the technology industry and also get them skills that allows them to either be creators, innovators, or the leaders of many of its expertise may see in the future

Christina who I've known my God I've we we have a mutual friend. So, I've known Christina for like ever, and then it was weird because as I was prepping for this interview, I listened to what we did about the Walter mccollough documentary and like a true astrologer. Lake Sheep. Like the predictions. So you can have to give to confirm all this. Now I mean it's kind of UNCANNY. The things she was saying about the documentary in. And then boom. Well listen I feel bad for you because Christina is both the smarter and Prettier One and I am just allowed one so. Yeah IT'S A. Back. Under. The intro like she does the military we set this up everything's under control, and then you come in late you're like, hey. Like. Thing. And another thing. Yes. So, listen. I. I, know I. I know I know the origin story so I don't WanNa get into it, and if people really want to hear the origin story about how this documentary came to be. We will link to the original. So this is an extension of that conversation. But so I wanted to have you on because of that but also to talk about representation in general were it's going next your thoughts. Let's start talking about I about this. You know I think it was a sensation. When it came out I mean. Yeah. I mean talk talk about it talk about. It feel. Wait. A minute. So we launched on Netflix July night. Oh my God. It feels like he'd launched like. Okay. So it's Depending on, you ask I'm sorry I depending when you ask either it was six days ago or six years ago Leno. Yeah. So tell me how has been has been. Changing or creatively. Awesome. It's been a little bit of both it's surreal how it's been. You know. We made the dock in. In you know the whole journey was just really crazy but just really the the end of his you know we finished the dock. Sundance November I walter died November second. So that was just a moment of that was a weird coincidence. But then we had to go back to Puerto Rico Puerto. Rico for the funeral we were there for a week we to Sundance. Saving. And then we I I mean I say this with both humility and pride, and then we got into every vessel that we wanted to get into. Between what the funding With release and the world shut down with Kobe and And so Some of those most of us all those actually. To others got cancelled. So it's minute really weird I felt that in the age to yeah it's been really weird. Re experiencing this all from my living room like from my kitchen table. Yeah. It's so crazy but A. Every day with a new thing you've you've heard of either new famous person who's seen it or we've gotten a new message from another part of the world somebody who's discovered Walter it's been a little spin really surreal but I mean now how fun I mean we made the movie 'cause like Latinos we will say as Latinos we had the leverage in the honor to have walters part of our lives for decades, and we made the movie because we wanted to share him with the world at large to see that actually happening. It's wild. It's crazy. So you know it's funny. You say because when I did talk to Christina was around Sundance. and. You. Know you go out there. I mean you guys I remember. I saw the pictures of you guys were like, Hey, we are premiering. Hey, we're. We're in the CAPE'S HEY, here we are.

You're so right about just being physically present what your creative you know. You're there. It's like it's done. I'm with people. This is this is this is going to be a great year and it still is a great year right but but you're seemed to be celebrating it in a very moral. Distant way, but is it satisfying I? Mean I must be. I mean, it is incredibly satisfying incredibly exciting

I have to say you be honest with everybody listening right now when I you know, a lot of the times I'll receive story pitches and ideas some of them come from you at home. And when this month when your name came across my desk, I was intrigued because admittedly, you know, I thought I don't know that many people who are visually impaired and you know, when I started this podcast, I really wanted this to be a place where people could come and get education and be empowered and and also be dead, Lightened about things that we might not know about whether it was products or procedures or or people in general and you know through talking to a learned that October which I feel like I'm not many people know his breast cancer breast cancer awareness month is is also visually impaired Awareness Month. Correct? Yes. It is the month where there is white cane safety day, which is nationally recognized day and it's about you know, recognizing individuals who are blind and visually impaired and really addressing their independence with by using the white cane which as you know is what they use to help with orientation and mobility and all the Independence that maybe a lot of people may not perceive that they have right so but yeah, it's a very empowering Day, I am so honored that you are here. I think that for again people listening. This is going to be inspiring and emotional when we started talking in our in our pre-owned chat. You've got some some such brilliant tips that whether you are visually impaired or fully sighted. I think that you are going to find incredibly useful and and I hope this podcast particularly gives you a little bit of inspiration and you know, and and that you leave it feeling a grateful for those of you who don't have to deal with visual impairment of how lucky we are. So I think you get into this field. How did you get into this specialty? It you know what I have to say. It was purely by accident. I really was very much like you and very much like most people in the world who may or may not most people haven't met a blind person in their lifetime. And so I was very unaware of the need even that this even existed that there were blind women who wanted to learn how to do their makeup nor did I even have the idea that that that was something that you know was a concern and so several years ago back in 2011. I started volunteering reading for the blind games on a radio show called sight into sound radio and I was volunteering, you know, just to read books read, you know magazines to to the song mind and then over that course a couple of months later. I went to an event that we were, you know, hosting or not hosting but there and I met a blind young lady. Here in Houston. She's also known as the MasterChef winner for 2012. Her name is Christine Hall. If you pull her up on the internet, you'll find all information about her. She is a blind woman here in Houston who won MasterChef 2012. Wow, and you know, she's like a celebrity in the blind community and I walked up to her cuz I was there on site into sounds behalf. And I said, hey, you know, I'm a hairstylist and a makeup artist. So if you ever need anything, I'll be more than happy to help you and just so you know get you ready for the cameras and get you ready on set and she said, you know Chelsea, there's so many makeup artist and and people like that that are usually on said that can do that for me home. But to be honest since I lost my vision I haven't been able to do my makeup for myself anymore. And I said, oh really and she said, yeah and I said, well she's like, so do you think you can teach How to put on my own makeup and I said, why don't know I've never taught a blind person to put on their own makeup before, you know, I teach you know, young ladies and their mom and later, you know women that come in at my school and all the time who have Vision, but I said, you know what? I don't know but let me give it a try and so so we set up an appointment in her kitchen. I came to house several times and cookies something good. Not yet. Okay. All right. All right. We got to get in there. She did open up a restaurant here in Houston called The Blind goat, so just woke up there, but she has her own restaurant and she she does cook but at that time, you know, we sat down in her kitchen and she she taught me what it is that a blind person needs. Like how to teach her I didn't even know how to teach her. So she was like, okay. Well, can you describe that a little bit better? Can you like what you know and then hear what does that bottle feel? Like, what does that feel? And so here I am in our kitchen learning how to teach a blind person with audio description. I didn't even know what the word meant at the time then it was how to give verbal instructions on how to describe color how to map your face with your fingers and feel like orientate or your body. Like where are my eyebrows where you know are my thoughts eyelids and things like that and then like using your hands as guides and using voice as you know instruction and so it was like and then learning how to identify the differences between this bottle versus that
Nagorno-Karabakh truce frays amid reports of new shelling
"Alliance to mano, and we're joined by Professor Brenda Shaffer of the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies. I begin with the news. This is Reuters. Within these last hours, Armenia and Azerbaijan accused each other on Sunday within last hours. Violating a new humanitarian ceasefire and fighting over the mountain enclave of Nagorno car. Bach after was agreed The truce agreed on Saturday came into force at midnight after a week old Russian brokered ceasefire failed to halt the worst fighting at 10. 10 GMT, The Azeri Defense Ministry said the aft Agdam region adjacent to growing a car back was under Armenian shelling. It said overnight army and military units open fire from large caliber weapons along the border, which Armenia denied. Armenia said the Azeri army had fired twice during the night and used artillery and accused Baku. Rejecting its request to withdraw the wounded soldiers from the battlefield. Mr Ambassador, I come to you with first the poor news of the breakdown in the cease fire. And then the positive news from Washington that the foreign minister of Armenia will meet with your foreign minister of Azerbaijan, and Mike Pompeo, the secretary of state on Friday. Does that look to be a moment when a more lasting ceasefire could take hold since the Russians failed? Can Washington succeed? Good evening to you? Good evening, John. Always good talking to you. And once again thank you for keeping this, Uh public and listeners updated on the development of the region. Unfortunately, issue actually pointed out the ceasefire has broken down again. That's the second time that the minions violate the cease fire. We don't fully understand why they Sign this file. Just violated very shortly afterwards. What elevation is that once they don't really want to seize fire? They didn't don't wantto engage in the Meaningful conversation on substantive talks. All they want is to prolong the occupation of the virgin lands on DH by why didn't cease fire created conditions with third parties to participate to direct, uh, posters, other parties, including courses of action in this case in tow, direct confrontation into direct conflict. That's that's a danger. Think. So this continues to because ceasefire is a good thing off course nobody wants people to die. Nobody wants to shooting to continue. But at the same time. The most important thing, of course, is no justice filed by the medical conversation and substantive talks based on international war, and that's what I hope is that meetings in Washington will produce something like that, of course. Every effort for peace is appreciated. Andi if the United States as a culture of the men's group wants to take a proactive approach to that, that's a very positive development. We don't know exactly what what exactly you expect from the conversation. But Um, a little over to the visit to Washington. Mr Ambassador. I believe in these last days, I've seen video of more missile attacks against ganja is that is that correct? These are in addition to the ones we talked about last week. It's holding. It's just horrible. Uh, easy losing on the battlefield. I mean, is exactly what every dictatorship which is militant and the hunter is doing when they was in the better. They attacked someone else's civilians so Friday, just hours off deciding the ceasefire agreement Ah, I mean, you're fired. Ballistic scarred me so into the sedation neighborhood in gadget, this tongue everything. Now they're trying to say this is occasions versus Muslims they hit in, added 500 M from the major. Go to the kitchen, Cassio and 300 M from the major mosque. This is a type of behavior over uncivilized. Nation. I mean, it's like Saddam Hussein. Firing things into Israel works for them works at the same doing that towards others, by the way. Saddam Hussein began firing missiles into civilian Attias of is a also once you began losing in his occupation, illegal occupation off of it. Washing others of the same thing. This is this was a horrible poker, Uh, scores of people died, including a good 10 years old. A 10 month old baby. Can you imagine that toilet picture over father holding it? 10 months old. Body off his daughter. There's a girl who was killed whose birthday was on our additional day, which is the way it is October, so Visit when we go into a cease fire when we're going to come into a negotiation, I want people to understand. If you look at the emotions on the outside when we go Talk to people who do this kind of thing's Ah, Professor. There is a video I have seen

For every New Zealand has never been so important more than it has been now. We living in an increasingly polarized world a place where more and more people have lost the ability to see one. Another's point of view having come in for criticism during the campaign on failing to address housing shortages and poverty. She acknowledged there were difficulties ahead. Over the next three years. There is much to do. We will build back better from the covert crisis. Stronger. With an answer to the mini challenges New Zealand. Already faced. Challenges or no the scale of the win came as a surprise even to her supporters. The easiest way of describing is that it was unparalleled in modern history. I wonder why it had Austrailia and correspondent say the Labor Party which has just endured dance policy one, forty, nine percent of the and that was compared to nearly twenty seven percent for the main opposition, which is called the national policy, which is conservative that is the best result Labor's result for any policy since the fifties and it gives it a majority of seats in parliament, and that is the first time that any he's been. Able to govern on its own underneath. Zealand. System of proportional representation which has been in place since one, thousand, nine, hundred, sixty, they were winning in both provincial rural conservative strongholds, ondon rich city areas, and to give sense New Zealanders vote for both the preferred party and an MP on their ballots and labor top the preferred party votes in sixty eight of its seventy constituencies really astounding result for them and what was the the campaign like De Campaign was focused on pretty much only one subject which was the government's response to the coronavirus. It was really a referendum on how the government and I think in voters is particularly prime minister has responded to the virus that response was to shut down the borders, I to China, and then to the rest of the world and then to rally support. For, what was a very, very strict lockdown in New Zealand at the beginning of the pandemic and say, Bara brief surges pretty much. Succeeded I. Need Twenty Five people have died and that was really what the campaign focus on the fact that life has been able to return and roughly to normal people are eating out people cramming into restaurants and their normal numbers. Forty six thousand people watching rugby match against Australia, this weekend. So the campaign was very much focused on that response and the opposition kind of found it quite difficult. See Find Ground on which to oppose the government, and so the scale of that result then is just a reflection of how satisfied everyone has been with the response to the pandemic. That is the singular issue of its left remembering that before the pandemic hits. Labor a was looking the polls. The suggesting that Labor was on track to lose. This election would have been a one term government, which is not very common in New Zealand central a being. Overseas particularly, for the way that she responded to the Christ church terrorist attacks, they were much last year when these two mosques were attacked by a white supremacist and she was obviously hailed. The way she united New Zealand does after that and staunchly defended immigrants but adulation wasn't really reflected back at home until the pandemic has. So was this a vote for her or a vote for the Party and it's I think it's got to be with her and not a great deal to do with the Party and its policies. So it was a campaign that was thin on policy on both sides update from national and Labour but I think it was a set of referendum on the prime minister's response. To the coronavirus even historisches appointment submit that she's a very gifted communicator particularly in times of crisis and young people particularly look to her. She has a kind of unpretentious approachability that I think that a lot of Kiwis light and political analysts in New Zealand will say that it's very much a politics of personality though she wasn't always popular home as she was overseas. I, think that Kiwis do derive a kind of sense of pride from hug label standing as well. So in a way that has served her well at home. Speaking to damage he said that her brilliant lies in the way she plays into their sense of exceptionalism. In key, we always liked to think that set apart by more than their geography and they punch above that waits. But what about apart from the personality and crisis management and so on. What about sort of kitchen table politics? This is. Just. On the Labor government comes in for a lot of criticism because when she came to power in two thousand seventeen. Labor was making a lot of very lofty promises to do things like reduce child poverty it was going to end homelessness in New Zealand. It was going to build one hundred thousand affordable houses in ten years. Of generally make New Zealand to Faira Besser country and it's pretty much failed to deliver on every single one of those things. The Prime Minister's critics point out that almost counts of poverty and social inequality museum and actually heading quits. Houses are increasing at the moment in New Zealand increasing through the crisis. So this is a big big criticism of her detractors that she is a great at moving motivational speeches, but quite a poor Administra- certain hasn't actually got much done. So that might explain why this time around the world kind of such lofty promises it was rather more timid. But. She's still got a strong base of support is on the left who are GonNa be expecting her to do a lot more particularly now she's not in. She's she's not having to form a coalition particularly now that she can govern on her own and so to your mind the the big difference then between the first term and this coming second term is that she that Labour will be governing alone. Is the big difference with governing Elaine comes a lot more responsibility. There is still a chance that Labor form some kind of coalition with the Greens will they. They don't need. Them might be handy have degrees inside the government say they're not handling the sidelines said that could either be a formal coalition or a more informal arrangement in which the Greens folks with Labor early onset issues. So a much stronger position on a lot more pressure within this time around. But what about fulfilling all those promises in light of the economic situation? I mean new. Zealand certainly must have suffered economically from the pandemic if not quite so much as elsewhere in terms of the human cost, it is in a recession. Now the economy is going to contract by about six percent. This year unemployment is rising the wage subsidy that is coming off. So Wild New Zealand has done very well at keeping the virus out there going to be lots more questions about what that has caused it, and how it is going to drive a recovery how it's going to get out of that mess. The Prime Minister says that there is a plan for recovery which includes things like building lots of roads but to her pregnancy looks quite incremental. They out there in no big plans for tax reform for example of just third some income tax hikes. But only on the talk to percent of workers say theoretically might think that with such strong majority, they pressure more radical agenda but there are many people in New Zealand see that. So to be so popular, you've got to be fairly uncontroversial owner. Thank you very much for joining us. Thanks, Jason.
Settling In With Your Budget
"You stop paycheck to paycheck, get out of debt and save more money. Earlier. Just after Mother's Day when you're supposed to do this at least here in our gardening zone I. purchased. Thirty two tomato clients twenty nine of which survived and dare I say thrived. And while I wasn't always. Of the mind that they would make it, they did they outgrew the not sturdy little green polls you can buy from big box. center stores and I will not do that next year I'm going to get something sturdier for those massive plants but needless to say we ended up. I think thirty, eight, twenty I can't remember exactly too many tomato plants. And what do you do when you have too many tomato plants you have too many tomatoes and that is exactly what happened to me and Julie. So we did what everyone did during a pandemic and we started putting things up and in this instance, these tomatoes. So the other day. I'm sitting there with a whole bunch aromas and we're doing this thing where you cut them in half you broil them in the oven for a moment and that's supposed to allow you to kind of pinch off the tomato skin and then you take that and you process it more and you ended up with. Think we ended up with that one doing some salsa. As I started the process, I kinda rinse them. I'd cut him in half I lay them skin side up on a cookie sheet I put it in the oven for five minutes. I'm watching it closely not to burn them I, pull them out, and then you have to let them cool. Weather Cooling I'm doing the next sheet I'm pinching off the skins once they've cooled down, I'm having to pull out the little white stem thing in there. And quickly like first or second cookie sheet in there were many many cookie sheets still to go. I told you. So this is GonNa take forever and she said. She said something very wise because she's. She gets to the. Essence of things quite adeptly. And she said Oh Jesse with canning, you just have to settle in. And that phrase is just kind of rolled around in my head since then and of course, while I'm sitting there pinching. Tomato. Skins off of half sliced Roma tomatoes ready for some, can't, salsa. I'm thinking about budgeting and I'm thinking about you good listener viewer and I'm thinking. Wow. Budgeting. Sometimes, with budgeting, you just have to settle in we get excited we plant all. Probably too many plants, but it's spring. It's not hot that are no weeds yet and we're excited plus we were at the store and we saw these different varieties and we're just were jazzed right so we get everything going. You put it in the ground at first. You don't even think things are working, but then the pace really starts to. Your excitement starts to take as the plants are growing, and all of that is like with any new endeavor. Here is the topic of conversation. So in any endeavour, we're going to be talking about. This. Period of initial excitement but once Wayne's and I'm just sitting there slicing my fifty. You know. Not. Fifty five, hundred, fifty, thousand. So many tomatoes and as I'm sitting there slicing the next one see no end in sight. I'm giving the wise counsel you just got to settle in and so it is with budgeting in particular that pernicious little beasts that is paying off debt. You have to find a pace where you just almost you call it out at the beginning and you just recognize you know what? We're going to be here a little while and that's what Julia was saying. She's like Oh we're canning were processing or cutting these things we're doing all these steps were standing in the kitchen sink. We're going to be here a little while we might as well just settling. Sodas with budgeting you're going to be here awhile when you've got a big goal that you want to tackle on audacious Harry goal like Jim, Collins says. Givens has big big hairy audacious goal like paying off all your debt finally, getting rid of your student loans saving up enough money for a house down payment in a market where housing just keeps. Going on a terror.

I was trying to start my son like climbing up I think it was like coming up afraid of stone steps several two to three row quite dangerous. Not really no idea and was saying, no, don't they wasn't cross wasn't shouting but no dunning not do that. We're not. We're not gonNA come upstairs and she was like. This quite of evidence that.

I'm always ready to take advice you give it a go So she went hey, come here and she got like a broom and she tried to distract my son from the stairs by giving him a broom to play with and he didn't really want the fucking broom and he wants to get the fucking stairs throw things off the landing and lost it a about. I'm going to say ninety seconds tops and then just quietly hopped into the kitchen just makes league imagine if that was a good distraction technique house cleaning flows pay I mean, yeah you'd be Hick go sweep call everyone knows the broom technique Emma I'm surprised she didn't bring it up earlier. But now I'm terrified you're GONNA go when actually saying not children is now established I've got I've got something helpful. Say about this the I heard on another pocus the the day zoe mother kind and There was a woman talking about that moment you got on a roller coaster and you know when you shake the harness by and you're doing it not so that it moves because you don't want you don't want it to pop up and you're doing it because you want to know that it's there to keep you safe.

Richard McSpadden from AOPA on how he got into aviation
"Where did your first interest in aviation start off? Yeah. It came really from my dad when my dad turned it was roughly in in his forties early forties. My mom gave him a present of a flight lesson off and he took that I was about high school college at the time. And he immediately took to it. He just loved it as my mom knew he would and I watched him go through that and saw the planning at the kitchen table and all that and I thought man that that looks like a lot of fun and he encouraged me through the years kind of nudge me to look at flying you thought I would enjoy it thought I would you know be good at it and I'm really thankful that he did that's kind of where it came a little bit late for me in life. But that's kind of where it came from that is a little bit later than most people we talked about. I one of my good friends in college that he was the same way. He entered ROTC with me and his whole goal was I think he wanted to be a lawyer in the Air Force song You Had a scholarship in for like English or something cuz you did really well in school and he decided that he thought this flying thing would be super cool. So 18 plus years later. He still find fighters on active duty package. So I think maybe there's something to it for those of you who are trying to go that route maybe delay that passion. I gotta do this. I gotta do this you won't put as much pressure on yourself and wage. Actually grow into a little bit better and next thing, you know, you're the you're the lead of the of the Thunderbirds. So we've us through just how you're active duty career piece together to get you to kind of where you are, New Jersey. Yeah. So I was ROTC like you were and came out of University of Georgia and went to Advanced Air Force Base in Enid Oklahoma and back that time, you know, you everybody flew to 37th and then everybody Flutie 38 sand somewhere in there. They would decide they had to be far qualified and they would take like whatever persuasion they would make that far qualified and if you made that cut you were able to choose what you want to go fly next. I think they do a lot differently now, but and then it was it was a pretty brutal process everybody knew your rank order of the class and that was publicized well known and they would put the airplanes up that were available and you know pilot number one in the class. What do you want and need to look at the list of all the classes and birth Take whatever class he wanted and our our airplane and then you know on the number two number two, what do you want? Right so through that process. I got very fortunate and I flew the F-15. That's the place. I really wanted to fly. And from there. I flew and kadena and came back and did Holloman Air Force Base for a long time was the F-15 demo pilot for a while really enjoyed that bath and then moved to the ranks. Like a lot of people went back to the schoolhouse top there in the F fifteen for a while fluid Langley for a while and then moved onto the Thousand Birds, you know about about the time. I I think I was an Ops officer at Tyndall and release came out about okay. It's time to hire a new round of Thunderbird pilots. And one of them this year's team lead position. If you're an operations officer and you meet all these calls and you're interested, you know, put your package in and so that's kind of you know in short where my career went. I did have that middle stint. You know when you're on active duty job. Want you to do the career broadening thing. Oh, yeah, and so, you know rightfully so my boss was really trying to look out for my career and he was pushing me to go to the Pentagon and take a staff to her and just thought he didn't want to do that. So I went and found my my own little assignment flying King airs in the Philippines and just had a ball doing that my wife and I went we were I was an assistant at a shame that we had three King airs in the Philippines at the time. So my job was to sort of manage that Fleet and be the chief sort of instructor of you know, the 06 has and the other people that would apply to King air bag and that was just an absolute ball. I just I can't say enough about the king you are and what a fantastic airplane that is you say stuff like that and that makes me go. Yeah, I I've had friends who've done similar type jobs, right and I always say man. I just I learned about all these things the day after I make a decision and go for something else. It's like every significant wage Yeah,
The Hippie Trail Killer Charles Sobhraj
"We're all born with the need to be nurtured and loved we cry out for our parents when we're hurt or when we're scared for those whose please go unheard however, the desire for affection is sometimes unbearable and can lead down a dark road. Charles Sobhraj. Never felt the love and support of a stable family. He was born in the spring of nineteen forty four in Saigon French Indochina better known today as Vietnam. His mother was a shop girl named Chen Lang Fun who went by Noy and his father Hotan Chun Sobhraj was a wealthy Indian textile merchants but the union wasn't to last when Charles was only. Two years old noise took her son away from Hotan after learning he had another wife back in India. Fortunately, for Noye, she found a new start with French army Lieutenant Alfons Doro they fell in love and married in nineteen forty eight when Charles was four but Charles wanted nothing to do with his new stepfather and long to be reunited with coach and his real family. He got his wish in one, thousand, nine, hundred, forty, nine when they moved to France with Alphonse and sent five year old Charles to live with his father. But the reunion didn't go as Charles expected just like his mother Ho Chun had remarried and started a new family amidst the growing number of half siblings. Charles struggled to compete for hotel son's attention and felt unbearably neglected. Vanessa's going to take over and the psychology here, and throughout the episode please note Vanessa is not a licensed psychologist or psychiatrist, but she has done a lot of research for this show thanks Greg unlike some of the serial killers we've discussed in the past Charles never faced physical or sexual abuse. Instead, he endured a different kind of childhood trauma. He was ignored in favor of his half brothers and sisters according to psychiatrist Bruce, Perry, feelings of parental neglect can lead to increased aggression and cruelty. He adds that one of the most disturbing elements of this aggression is that it is often accompanied by a detached cold lack of empathy. Charles started showing signs of this developing aggression over the next three years. He joined a gang of street thugs who attacked and robbed on spending tourists. Unsurprisingly, his criminal activity didn't win his father's affection. In fact, when Noyon Alfons returned to Saigon in nineteen fifty to poach on sent eight-year-old Charles. His mother it's likely that the feeling of being unwanted by both parents haunted Charles for the rest of his life. In Saigon, Charles was still a handful. So in an attempt to curtail the unruly behaviour, Stepfather Alfonse formally adopted Charles, but it made no difference. The young boy was beyond caring about the acceptance of his family worse as he got older Charles started showing signs of Machiavelli Anisim the psychological trait based around manipulation and his favourite victim was his half brother. Andre. Andre, idolized his older brother which made him. The perfect target for Charles's machinations when Charles was ten years old, he convinced two year old Andre to steal from a shopkeeper when the toddler was caught under a confessed to their mother that Charles put him up to it to which Charles proudly scoffed I can always find an idiot to do what I want. It was clear to know that something had to be done before things got out of hand. So in. Fifty Nine Nov moved the family from Saigon to Marseille hoping the change would help to manage Charles's behaviour and further his education she enrolled the fifteen year old and an agricultural school, but it didn't help though he did display an industrious nature that December Charles tried to make some pocket money by selling Christmas cards on the street but his sales tactics were aggressive. The troubled teen was arrested for threatening people with a knife when they refuse to buy his cards in another bid to reform her son noise secured Charles a job at a cafe in Paris perhaps, some menial Labor would straighten him out that year. Charles Bounce from one Parisian restaurant to. Another either working as a busboy or kitchen hand peeling vegetables and washing dishes Charles, hated the work. But no, he refused to let her son slide. He needed structure Charles moved up in the ranks of fine dining and near the end of nineteen sixty became a busboy at la, Cupola of favorite eatery for the Parisian elite according to journalist Thomas Thomson at La cooply. Charles caught glimpses of high society from his place in the back. Those few seconds is the kitchen door flapped open were enough to inspire Charles to strive for more to be rich like them,
Interview with Adam Lowry and Eric Ryan
"If, you're looking to start a business in the late nineteen nineties. You probably didn't have to spend a Lotta time convincing friends and family that it was a good time to go into tech. This was the height of the DOT com bubble and it seemed like the future was literally being written by companies like, Google and Yahoo Ebay and Amazon. So it can be kind of hard to imagine why to twentysomethings who lived in San Francisco in the nineteen nineties would survey this promising landscape and say. You know what the world really needs right now. Soap. So that will do a good job cleaning your kitchen counter or your toilet, but that won't destroy the planet in the process. And that is exactly what Adam lowry and Eric Ryan set out to sell in two thousand the very year that dot com bubble burst. And the company they founded method with its sleek bottles and products smelling like cucumber or bamboo it actually went on to compete with some of the big is soap companies in the world but before they went into business together, Ataman Eric were actually childhood friends. They met when they were kids maybe twelve or thirteen years old because they were both super into sailing and both of their families worked in the auto industry which Adam says was pretty much what everyone did where they grew up in Grosse Pointe Michigan. Almost everyone that I can remember with their families were involved in I. Think Eric Your family. Yes. My great-grandfather dropped out of pharmacy school and moved to Detroit to work for Henry for five dollars a day and ultimately Henry Ford. I've I've has some Ford stock that was when Henry was still running the company by my grandfather. My grandfather and grandfather together started a machine and stamping. If you ever see like this giant presses that come down, so they would make a lot of the parts that went on the automobiles. In so I kind of grew up in the shadows of my great grandfather and grandfather being these entrepreneurs who created something from nothing. At Eric both went off to college was in the early nineties. Adam went to the west coast. He studied chemical engineering at Stanford and Eric went to the East Coast and studied business at the University of Rhode Island. Both of them were actually recruited by the university's sailing teams. They were serious sailors and to be clear in college. Adam and Eric, didn't really keep in touch. They were the kind of. Friends who were happy to hang out and catch up just whenever they were back in Michigan. So after graduating atom stayed in the bay area to work for the. Carnegie. Institute of Science was doing research on climate change and Eric got a job in advertising and eventually he made his way out to San Francisco as well and shortly after that they both just happened to run into each other on a flight. I, think it was Thanksgiving if I'm not mistaken one year, maybe ninety, seven, ninety, eight, I walk on a plane I see Eric and I didn't know that he was living in San Francisco. You only move there the couple of weeks a couple of weeks earleir right and so there was an open seat I ended up sitting next to him on the plane. We for five hours got all caught up. It turned out we were living on the exact same block just out of. Pure coincidence and I was living in a flat with four other guys from Stanford and Eric was living by himself in a one bedroom and so when one of those guys rotated out, we invited Eric to move into the apartment and then we re just one you could actually live in San. Francisco for a reasonably low amount of rent I paid six hundred dollars a month in rent. Oh my God this is nineteen, Ninety, seven, Ninety, eight. Amazing. So you move into this group house. Doing doing your early twenties or whatever, and the house was just like a six guys in a presumably not super clean. It was exactly as clean as you would expect it to be got it. All right and I mean, did either of you at that time in your minds were either of thinking. Business or you just kind of grinding away doing your day to day jobs. For me personally I I, knew since the third grade I wanted to be an entrepreneur obviously annoying neighborhood kid who's constantly selling buttons or anything else I could. So I just I always knew I wanted to start a company and I loved I fell in love with advertising and branding but I knew it's pretty uncommon as an entrepreneur you're first company will be successful. So I kind of wanted to build a little bit of a safety net of a career, but I was constantly noodling on ideas for me personally just coming up with the right one that would eventually take
Crime Boss, James Whitey Bulger
"In the kitchen of seven ninety, nine east. Third Street in Boston Fifty Five Year Old Boston crime boss Whitey Bolger said across from John mcintire he felt nothing but hatred. He knew that McIntyre agreed to talk to the DA and there was nothing that Whitey loathed more than a rat. A cool breeze rattled the window on that day in November nineteen eighty-four McIntyre was handcuffed and chained to a chair. Whitey set his MAC ten machine pistol on the table and told him that they needed to talk. Knew, he was doomed. There was a reason why Whitey had become the kingpin of South Boston. Lording over the neighborhoods loansharking bookmaking truck hijacking and extortion rackets, and it wasn't by showing mercy. He knew that even if he was somehow able to talk his way out of the situation that was nowhere to run. By the end of his career Whitey sanctioned hits as far away as Oklahoma McIntyre. Himself had even been involved in weapons smuggling scheme into Ireland full Whitey. No less. His boss was an international criminal. The great irony of course was Whitey got away with all of his criminal enterprises because he himself was an FBI informant. Whitey had grown up in the projects with an FBI agent named John Connolly. To him. Whitey was more than just a valuable pawn in their war against the Italian mafia, and for Bolger, Connolly became his `get-out-of-jail-free card and it was connelly who gave him the tip that one of his guys McIntyre was talking of course only those in White T.'s inner circle new of his deal between Bolger and connolly besides who would suspect Whitey of talking he was the gentleman gangster who bought Turkeys for poor South Boston families on Thanksgiving, the man who was a fitness. Nut He didn't drink or smoke the same Whitey who for all of his wealth and power still drove a Chevy Malibu and lived with his mother nearly until her death in nineteen eighty. Whitey, was a Southie boy through and through no, one would accuse him of talking to the feds so why he ran southie and that meant he had all the tools in his pocket, the power of the FBI and the power to do whatever needed to be done to anyone who crossed him. In. The kitchen John mcintire shook his head apologizing over and over again he told his boss. I'm sorry. I was week white. He wasn't interested in the apologies he needed information. He turned the conversation to ask him questions about what McIntyre told the FBI. NDA and then oddly his questions shifted back towards business McIntyre was entrenched in Boston's drug trade Whitey.

"Fruits or vegetables on the planet. Welcome to recall ready the this week in total recall last week to whistle blowers notified. The office of special counsel under Changes to pork inspections conducted under the USDA previously poor plants were required to have as many as seven federal inspectors on the processing line handling hog carcasses and looking talking for defects and we talked about that previous bod. Yeah so the trump administration's changes to the USDA inspection rules are known as the new swine inspection system knishes early like workshop. Then they're gonNA shit under the new policy. Plant Line. Inspections will be performed by plant plant employees who have no federal safety training nor will they be required to and processing plants will be required to have only two or three federal inspectors on site to oversee inspections performed by the employees so they went from at least seven people doing the inspections to be on on the line. Yeah two two or three kind of in the building that check check their work essentially. Yeah all right. This new policy change also eliminates the federal limit on line processing speed meaning. The government used to tell slaughterhouses they could safely process one hog about every three seconds to make sure that there were no abnormalities nor defects and that was too slow. Apparently that's not fast hog every three seconds because the trump administration bucket hugh we have gotten so good at it then we can do in three years breath. I could not tell if a piece of shit was on a hog and three signing three seconds especially if it was moving past me no way apparently. That's not fast enough. Because the trump administration Russian now says the slaughterhouses can process as many carcasses per day as physically possible. Just GonNa look like one pig going by just a blur blur of like Gore and drastically reduces the time safety inspections. We'll have to catch your vico production problems. This also puts plant employees decreased risk of injury. No Shit under the previous line. Speed one hog. Every three seconds meatpacking employees were injured at a rate of two and a half times the national average rich. Yeah now these pigs are going to be flying past fifty five miles an hour ahead. The rate of injuries expected increase in direct correlation with line of production speed. And what is this for for cheaper Pu covered meat so in two thousand eighteen twenty five pork related recalls. That's a recall pork about every three two weeks last month alone. Moore's Meat Packing Company in Illinois had recall half million pounds or two hundred and fifty eight tons to be exact of pork simply simply because nobody had inspecting at all by anyone and it was on the truck to the grocery store. And you're like Hey George you look at that not off. Aw Fuck Hoods radio driver get back get back here and the only reason that we're learning about this because the two whistleblowers have recently made themselves public Joel mchower in Anthony. Vallone both are S. I. S. inspectors under the USDA in an interview with CBS vallone warns under these new rules quote. There's a lot of contamination going out the door. Bauer says there'll be a spike in defects and consumer products such as theses sex organs toenails bladders and unwanted hair so by default they mean grow share. It you don't want your food were when she's she listed all those things so feces sex organs toenails bladders riders on wanted to hear. I'm like yeah it's a hot dog. You just described a hot not getting into consumer products and I really liked the phrase unwanted hair. Yeah that's kind of specific the civic here and you pork Harry pork. Is there an amount of hair that you're like. Yeah that's fine would not want. What are you comfortable with also? Was this hair coming from pubic. Hair care we all know it. VALONA and other interview inspectors are deeply concerned that employees. Oy inspectors will have little to no experience and we'll do minimal checking to maintain line speed just to keep the plant owners. Happy I yeah. They're going to be instructed did because they don't want to get fired they don't want to get fired end. If it's like when I worked at the grocery store here we go. We've got to bring it up every you guys at a whole glasses champagne. She's he's ready to talk about grocery store. Well you know you got your raise with partially based on your rings per minute so the number of things you bring up in a minute. Yeah just doing quality yeah get it done. Get it in this fast you fucking can. And that's exactly what it's like. Okay well when you were you know the foreman on the line. They were processing processing three hundred gigs per second. So you get a fucking raise. Yeah this is actually. I mean on related to this story but Very similar to the consequences. This is why they're whistleblowers blowers Boeing is because they were processing than too fast and things were coming back with defects and they were like do not send that plane. Out and Boeing was sitting there fucking Plano a- and the inspectors were like fuck that I've been here twenty something years that I'm not gonNA sign my name off on. That's not going to hurt people and it did. Yeah Oh yeah at the new inspection. Policies will affect over ninety percent of the pork produce and sold to American consumers. And you're not gonNA be able able to get away from it. y'All ninety percent and the trump administration is looking to apply these new policies to beef packing soon. New Food tried going coach.

"And you've got to you know you're throwing back some Sarah's I can just imagine people go on like Oh that's amazing I love it right and then if they can get those people by the three thousand dollar version than future versions come down and there are other things too like. Jen pointed out like sprouts. Io has been on the market. For a while. OR I. I should say they kick started. And then I think they started shipping and then and What's the other one? No CDO and there was another one that presented a couple of years ago. The Eva David Growth. There ought to be Vancouver out of Vancouver So I think that it also acts as for as case it also access sort of high design art like ooh. This is really cool. It's got the the lighting and it's all green and it looks Nice So I think that there's there's that sort of factoring into it as well. I mean I think you got. That's exactly right Chris in that. Like if you think about everything in the home New Features oftentimes and up in like the high in home. Or there's someone comes in and installs a system integrator evader certainly like whole-home audiovisual right. And then I think in the kitchen space like all these new feature sets oftentimes come I'm in the former like a really expensive appliance. So if Millais can create this as a category In get like people who are doing big kitchen remodels to buy inner building new. You big new homes with fancy kitchen's kind of make the idea of in home. Vertical farming like a an acceptable acceptable category. They're kind of doing the industry favor. Because right now it feels like everything they see from these small automated plant. Growers often people who are growing cannabis Roy or giving giving these this this Christmas gifts. This this category has not been I think legitimize in a big way. I think this could help do that. I want to be on my goals. Christmas uh-huh meal mealie meal can make this work and have enough interest in it then like all these other competitors are also going to pick up the seat does and the panics. The sprouts I oh and then you know I could see fifty down the road as it gets more affordable. It's like oh where is your herb crisper that I'm GonNa go you know sprinkle cement from you know they're sort of going to normalize legitimize it as you said Mike. Well the other thing too. Is You know Like that solid state. RF Oven but that's only in Europe right like like that's not coming over here. I don't know when that's coming over here. They didn't show it at CAS last year So Avenue they haven't even shipped in in Europe yet. They're still working on it right. So what I'm saying like you know and kitchens are just different over in Europe for the most part houses aren't as big and sprawling as you know. American mcmansions are so I. I think that there's also just sort of that just to keep in mind as to what meal is GonNa go go after the market. They're going to go after it. I well I'm excited to see what happens. I wouldn't mind have one of these if I had like a big fancy kitchen Another thing I would have liked when I had young kids instead of actually having to go out and buy food I would have liked at. You haven't delivered direct my home personalized for my children note of felt like I was a parent but and this is a reality happening today potentially with a company called and Catherine this is pronounced you mean no. Let's say Yummy. It's why AM I. And and they have a direct to consumer delivery cerberus these recent money to raise or announced the raise today of eight million. It's a consumer baby food company. And they also do kids food but it seems like they're really focusing on baby food and they come these little little pods and they're made with all natural ingredients and they're sort of personalized. I mean to a degree you go online and use sort of answer quiz about like what your babies ages and sort sort of like what you're thinking about any dietary constraints and then they'll send you these chilled Meals and you can choose one two or three meals per day shakes out to around five dollars a a meal and they're like a fresh. You know peach blackberry pudding. Whatever kind of fancy ingredients baby food a lot different than sort of like the mushy peas you find signed on the shelf that have been there for who knows how long so they're just kind of like making fancy pants but delicious looking baby food and then making it convenient by shipping it directly a to you sort of like a daily harvest is to millennials as you mean is Yummy is to like parents with young babies? Well I I think it it certainly audiences right like young mothers like who want like really good quality food with transparency. Even if they're buying it they think there's some level of personalization tation. I mean I I kind of call I've been describing this personalization like they probably have a ten to twenty like types of food and they just kind of take the one that fits the profile. A father's closest like it's not this isn't true personalization but I think maybe they're gonNA eventually get there. But I can certainly see like a a a group of Lake MOMS or DADS. Who would want this right and I mean I think it's four that some people can just who are into sort of natural ingredients and all that will just make their own baby food because I don't have a baby but I imagine it's not terribly difficult? If you're going to buy peach blackberry putting you could buy peaches and blackberry sort of blended up very similar to daily Harpist. Actually where it's like. Yeah you can make your own smoothies or or you can get this company to send you sort of pre chopped frozen bits that you just blend at home same thing you pay a little bit more for it but the convenience factors there and like sort of the knowledge just that it's going to taste good and that's sort of happening here but just baby food so I do. It's four a certain type of parent that has like that extra money I need to spend. It's not incredibly cheap. But it's not crazy expensive either Definitely someone who's into sort of Higher and foods. It's definitely on trend and in terms of convenience and as you said personalization though that's like it's not quite that personalized but it definitely taps into the trend of personalization allegation and yeah. I think it's I think it's really interesting and they're not alone. There's a couple of competitors little spoon as one Nurture life as another. There's also a couple of companies that'll send you prepped. Ingredients that you like blend yourself at home or steam race real yeah raise real and another one called thistle baby but I just think like this sort of model the direct to consumer Pre prepped. You know it was happening with meal kits It's happening with with a Lotta different categories and baby food just seems like one that hasn't really been tapped into that thoroughly and so I think Yummy is smart to do so. Yup If we can never figure Out How they say the name yeah we we have a chance. Yeah and speaking of personalization Mike. Should we talk about our new event. That's coming up. Yes way to plug would bring a quick blog. Lick transition we have this event called customize. It's it's all about personal is is nice food and how personalization will get its claws into our food system across across the whole spectrum so so whether it's in restaurants or at the at kind of the the CPG production level or actually to the consumer plate musician. Just yeah people who just like personalization has just been one of these macro trends that has been impacting every aspect of food and so we decided to bring everyone together and have a conversation about it. So it'll be in New York City which I'm excited to go to New York and it'll be on February twenty seventh and there's in Info on our website or you can go do Spin events dot the spoon dot tech slash customize. If you're interested but early bird tickets are on sale now. I think it's going to be awesome. We have some really cool speakers on board and it's GonNa be fun so you should come on out east coasters or West coasters. Yeah or West coasters. Make the trip to you know. Don't hang out in New York for a couple of days all right so plug out of the way. You should definitely come. But now it's like some other companies products in the form of our gift guide to guide like each at three things recommended. And I'll start with you because you kind of tease to you. Don't have to do the vertical farm system that you teased but maybe picks house. What is one of the gifts you recommended that you? I think you've cool food tech gift for someone to buy. Well I actually yeah. I actually did recommend panicked systems vertical farm which is the five hundred five hundred dollars ish rush And you can hang it on a wall which doubles as art But if we are going to run out of coffee apparently at at some point in the future than everyone in my family's getting the second generation Amber Mug for Christmas so we can take advantage now. no I just think I'll I'll plug ember just because I've I mean the first generation I have one. It's amazing in the second generation. Chris you wrote about this. I believe when it first came out. It's a little bit more expensive. But they've improved the battery life on it. I believe yeah. I haven't tried the home mug. I tried the travel mug. Okay Yeah Yeah I just you know I I know many any. I have many people in my life. Who Microwave old coffee about halfway through the day and you know anything that will stop at grievous action? I am still aren't so I had an uncle. Like he would like make coffee at the beginning of the week and just put it in the the fridge then like we wanted a copy just microwave. Mike wave and I always thought that's such an old person. Do and why not doing that. I'm actually microwave and coffee and cake Halley from the morning. So is that like an old person thing jen like. I'm I'm just unsure myself at this point. microwaving your coffee no. I don't think I don't think it's a generational can how else so you know. For example one of my family only members works in a school all day where it would just be. You have to keep microwaving your coffee in the classroom to keep it warm you could just instead on the death. Yeah and just have it sit on your desk and it stays warm even though you know. You're teaching in a school. Your attention gets pretty divided throughout the day Dealing with kids. So you know I think that is a perfect sort of location for something like this device. All Right Chris you you have a few things on your give list. Am I know which I would want. I think you can pray gas but like you want pick one at once and tell us about it. Well you would want the magic spoon and you live with your door. She's delicious sugar. Cereal kind of not really. Yes that is on my list if you WANNA give somebody Akito friendly sugar cereal adults. But if you're looking for something a little more substantial and expensive The Cinder Grill is something that I've recommended I've used it and It cooks a steak perfectly It's really good. What it does is it takes all all the good attributes of sous vide cooking and sort of removes some of the Lesser Fun aspects of it? So you don't have to fill up a water bath. You don't have to wait. Wait for that water bath to come to temperature. You don't have to do a lot of stuff you just. It's like a big George. Foreman Grill on steroids. Put your piece of meat in between the two and it does the Soviet cooking. And then it also can ratchet up the heat to sear the meat So you don't have to go. You know once you've done SUV eating than throw it on a hot hot grill on a separate appliance. You can do it all in one. It's about three hundred and fifty bucks. I think they were running some specials earlier. But I've been actually talking with people who have been doing sous vide sort of out in the wild and I've been surprised..

I'm working with Dr. Must Be Nice must be nice. I'm sitting in an office chair. I thought I figure here we all should do that. But Hey teaches own the most important thing is we talk about Food Tech News. And we'RE GONNA start off on the top. Go to Jen Marcie. Could you had a really great market map about ghost kitchen. You you wrote about put together the market map This saying everyone should look at is very. It's very visual. But let's talk kind of walked through it you had you had got a few categories. Let's talk about the ghosts. Kitchen categories. Yeah absolutely and before. I jump into the categories Just to say you know so the interesting thing about putting this map together is this. Is You know yes. The concept of ghosts kitchens has technically been around for a great number of years years but the the iteration of it that we know in two thousand nineteen is still pretty new. And we're still getting just you know on a weekly basis his companies coming into this space from all different areas of the restaurant industry so this is an initial snapshot. And you know it's going to change a lot within. I would say the next couple of months even so you know there will be future versions of this. Market Cricket Map Frequently I would say over the next year But yet though this one that we released this week has It's four different categories. So the first one is kitchen infrastructure providers and those are the folks who are actually providing kitchen space two companies so you have kitchen united which is obviously really need expanding rapidly as you know opened or has plans to open urban locations all over the country. These are typically large facilities that howls multiple kitchens. Nine twelve I think some some of them are twenty and companies rent space. They rent kitchen. Space from that provider. the interesting thing about This category Orien- This is sort of an overarching. Theme of the entire map is that there is some overlap between this one and this virtual restaurant concept so cloud kitchens. Kitchens is a kitchen infrastructure provider but within their kitchen facility. They're also creating and testing delivery only restaurant concepts up so concept. You can't find in a brick and mortar restaurant you can only get it online through cloud kitchens And the virtual restaurant. If I were to make a off the top of my head prediction here I would say the virtual restaurant box is the one that's going to grow the the most in the next few months there are a ton of different companies and not just restaurants either. You've got whole thirty. Is a diet concept. They teamed up with Grub hub and have a virtual restaurant ubereats and Rachel. Ray Teamed Up. I bet we're GONNA see more celebrities teaming up with people to do these virtual restaurant strong concepts so I and the reason you really goes. We're going to explode because once you had the underlying infrastructure These companies have the foundation. On which if they can build a virtual restaurant writing. I like how you kind of like into to cloud computing providers That's an analogy. I think about a lot. In kind of have this underlying infrastructure that's a sharable something somewhat elastic one and then it allows other folks who want to build and create on top of that to do that. Yeah exactly it's providing finding you the tools you need to get going without you having to go off and build your own solution so you know Paul thirty doesn't need to go scout out real estate and make sure that they can afford a series of brick and mortar locations. They can instead had just sign on with the facility for what they need and boom off. You go real quick question we're GONNA. Let's finish out the categories but juno if there are any virtual restaurant trump providers that are working with different infrastructure underlying infrastructure companies. Until like if you think you specialize in just kind of spinning up a restaurant concept that goes into a canoe burrito APP or like a Grub up or whatever And you might WanNa diversify depending on where you are geography wise. were or or just kind of kind of underlying infrastructure providers. Do you know that or is that something you think will happen i. It's something that has happened so there was as a company who has since gone under called Green Summit Group. They were based out of New York City. And GRUB invested a million dollars into them and they were doing. We covered it a few years ago. They were doing virtual concepts with Restaurant operators within Green Summit Kitchens. There isn't a ton of that on this map right now but I definitely think it's something that we're going to see a lot more of in the future future. I agree and I jumped a little bit ahead like I. I ask you to explain the categories but this whole concept I think a lot of our listeners probably know about but just just generally this idea of ghost. Kitchens is a phenomenon. That's happening this year. And it's it's going to radically reshape. The restaurant industry. But if you were to step back and describe describe maybe kind of capture what the ghosts kitchen thing is. The idea knew that for sure quickly. Jim sure absolutely so a ghost kitchen on again. You know this is. This is something that's already been in existence and it's been iterating on itself kind of behind the scenes for years but today on December whatever whatever it is two thousand nineteen The ghost kitchen is a kitchen facility. That exists so that restaurants can fulfil off premises orders. So that's to go orders. That's delivery a massive driver of this space a lot of these restaurants. So let's just take let's take chick-fil-a they're renting space out of door dashes kitchen right now They are doing that. As a way laid to fulfil more of these delivery orders in these takeout orders or to go sorry Without burdening the kitchen staff of the brick and mortar locations. Yeah it's basically because this explosive off premise stories happening which has been a a unleashed through just the growth of mobile mobile ordering in mobile delivery that the typical fast food quick chain oftentimes isn't prepared for for that and they wouldn't be able to necessarily fulfil that and idea and the thinking is y y build like a traditional consumer facing restaurant. If like the bulk of your orders sort of your goal is to just to fulfil mobile ordering and mobile delivery right right. I mean a perfect real life example. I was with family at Grimaldis pizza over the holiday weekend. And you know it took an hour to get our pizza even though we were sitting in the dining room but we were right by the kitchens and we kept noticing just to go box Fox after Toco box going out the kitchen door and someone in my family finally commented well. I'm seeing an awful lot of to go boxes. Go out but why is it taking so long to get our food. That is the reason. Restaurants are going towards his ghost kitchen model because their in house kitchens just from from a space perspective time perspective a manpower perspective or woman power. They can't handle the influx of orders. They need to basically extract the entire delivery piece of this equation out and put it somewhere else. The easiest way to do that is to go with a ghost. Kitchens you know it's it's so much more cost effective than building out yet another full facilit- art full restaurant the people you're dining signing withhold out your ghost kitchen market map where a little bit annoyed at your preparedness l.. Might Families and Jen actually on the one thing that market I you Mike and I talked about this one thing. I was expecting to see a lot more companies on their But it seems like there aren't a ton right now right right like I know it kind of depends on how you break things down but I. I was surprised that there aren't more companies getting into this sort of. How do you see this playing out over the coming year? Yeah I mean that to be honest and and you know full disclosure. This market map was extremely challenging to put together for a lot of reasons. One of which was There was a question of. Why aren't there more obvious? Companies to put on this map I think again. It's it's still a very new the concept and you know we those of us at the spoon it seems like the biggest thing in the world because we sit and we talk about food tech all daylong every day but a lot of restaurants and brands and tech companies. And you know are just getting started voted with this so I think the way this will play out. I mean I I would expect that That we're going to see this map double in and size at least within the next six months if not sooner and that is going to be you know if you go over to restaurant operated. Kitchens wins which we haven't talked about as a category at but These are restaurants who are restaurant. Chains actually operating goes kitchens from their own restaurants that category. He's GonNa get huge out. We're GONNA see more kitchen providers for sure and like I said you know the virtual restaurant concept is just going to explode. Basically it was Adam Brodmann who used to head up digital for starbucks who is now a CEO of Braille him that he spoke at Essen he goes does he. Decisions a world where you could spin up a new restaurant concept on a nationwide basis in just a matter of months if you were to have access access to deliver at providers you had the capital you access infrastructure providers with ghost kitchens across a across the country in in. There's no reason why he can just a new virtual restaurant concept very quickly and even have things like robotic manufacturing Like envision like a mix of that happening. We're time so it's just like this all these different things we talk about whether it's mobile delivery or kind of robotics and all the stuff. I think they're all going to have a play in this. What's happening in what you're looking at your with? That goes Kitchens Jen. Yeah and just to add one more piece to answer Christmas question Chris. I think another category that we are going to see. Come onto this map has to do with the actual tech heck stack powering these kitchens because.

"That you are exposed to Fox. You sound like you love and you are happy the expect everybody may say WanNa talk to you when he came out to a friend and they told me Oh I knew that already from your voice that was like a punch to the stomach. I wondered why someone would say something like that. What do we gain from that common other than me regretting coming out to them? You know from our culture. I think we are moving living in a progressive way where it's like these stereotypes and these assumptions people make about each other based off these essentially superficial qualities. Your voices the superficial quality. It's not something that defining who you are as a person just as Michelle said isn't a sexuality type in his Ali said being gay isn't a personality type whether you're gay straight Bi Trans or however you identify your you and that's what's important and just like on that ship. People try is defined me determine. Stop acting like a fag or that MC talented being gay and when I hear all these things being said regardless of it being a joke or not I remember going against the rail laying my head on the cold would and looking down at the water below.

"I saw similarly to kind of thinking of going back to the beginning wing of language of like honey of material. This is asking someone to single. Alibi is also very much like the beginning of language. But with uh-huh We will mash on the move to produce RUNA. When and I finished Lullaby I was invited to Venice to make peace with Venice Jewish community and I thought I would come to the Jewish ghetto? The Jewish community in Venice was about to celebrate it. Five hundred in the Jewish ghetto. It was the first ghetto ever and they celebrated it in two thousand sixteen. I had my baby in the sling in the front and on my back I had a backpack with a camera and I thought I would come to Venice and everyone would talk to me and we would sing something in the ghetto and it would be wonderful and I came to Venice and no one talked to me. The Jewish community in Venison Venison. General is going through a big crisis because of the huge cruise ships that come into Venice. There's so many turist you can't really live in Venice anymore. Unless you live off tourism all the young people move away all the Venetian glasses made in China. Everything is made in China now and so it's kind of like the city's has gotten very old and many people who have lived there for generations are kind of warning the end of Venice's Venice's a real city so I found the community kind of in that state and also conflicted on different issues. And so I started going going to one person like one person invited me and I talked to them about the city and the Sancta me and ask them if they think they the Jewish community would be there in one hundred years and they said no they all said the same thing they said. Oh all my kids moved away I would leave. Ns Too. But I have too many books books. I can't leave. And then they would call their one friend on the phone and tell them that it's okay to talk to me. And then each person referred me to the next person. When for a a couple of years I talked to a lot of people within the community and they were all really mourning the end of the community? What happened to those interviews that I would come again to venison some some of the people I talk to passed away would give the recordings to their families? I kind of knew I was recording something that was meaningful but I didn't know what it would lead to then on my second in here. I met this incredible man. I'll do I'll do eat so used to hide as a boy in the Jewish cemetery in Venice from the fascists because no one would go in there and then when he grew up a he ran to see and became a captain of a ship and he was a captain of a ship for fifteen years and when he retired e went back to the cemetery and became king the captain of the cemetery and I kind of fell in love with him. He's eight now I'll do is is one of the most charming men I ever met. He's this loving person. He's full of life and full of love. He recently lost his wife and in he's losing his eyesight and he can't hear very well but he taught himself how to cook this past year and he rides his bike to the cemetery. Every day a couple of years ago I was about to come film him and I called him on the fund before and he said Oh I fell off my bike I broke my ribs and I thought okay. We'll cancel the trip. I couldn't castle it in more so I just said okay. I'll come to visit and I called him the morning afterwards and I said can I come and visit and he said Oh no. I'm just getting on my bike to go to the cemetery. So he's a real captain. Yeah he looks like an elegant captain from another world then. I was invited by the Israel Museum to do an exhibition Russian in Venice about the Venice Biennale but to connect to the celebration of the five hundred year so the Jewish ghetto at work moment it also seems like it was the the end of of this community and I had all these recordings hundreds of hours of years of recordings community members and I also had five years of recording of conversations I had with Aldo about his life and about how not to be afraid of death which Aldo somehow didn't seem to be afraid and so when we we're doing the exhibition in the beginning we thought that it was a whole floor museum and half of the floor would be like the community members and half of the floor would be although and and then slowly became apparent that the whole exhibition would be although Ito because he was burying them all when somebody dies in Venice and they call although he knows where are they go within the cemetery and because these are the final years of the community than it seemed fit to kind of have him be the center of the exhibition condition so the exhibition begins with video of all dues collection of turtles of mummified turtles before the at the top of the terrorism alchemy.

We'll go into that a little bit but like as always when the fall comes round news just seems to come at a furious pace and it's no different this year Genu you wrote about fat burger which is kind of crazy thing turning some of their lawn. John Los Angeles stores into Ghost Kitchens for sister brand. I thought that was really interesting. tell us a bit about that story so fat. Burger for those who aren't aware is is a southern California based Quick Service restaurant they do as the name suggests really fat Burgers so but they are owned by fat brands who has a number of different restaurant chains under its umbrella and fat owns a restaurant called Hurricane Grill Orland wings which is more on the East Coast like Florida New York but what they're doing is using fatburger locations in Los Angeles to to basically double as ghost kitchens for this hurricane grill and wings menu so an it's it's delivery only which I think is really interesting so if you go onto grope hct post mates are one of the usual third party delivery sites you can access you have to be in Los Angeles. You can access the hurricane grill and wings menu from those sites and get their food delivered to you which I I think it's an interesting interesting tactic because it's it's exposing you know so you've got someone who's a Fan Anna fatburger will they would probably if they're out on the west coast never have an opportunity to experience some of these other brands that Fat Burger owns in these other restaurants so this is sort of a super cost effective way for fat rams to kind of expose customers to the entire portfolio without having go and build full on brick and mortar restaurants with dining rooms across the country and they did say that they wanted to start doing doing this sort of ghost kitchens for one brand in the kitchen of another just with all of their restaurant chains in the future future so I think this is I mean this is the first time I've seen something like this but it just thinking about it now. It just kind of seems like a no brainer and I feel like this is definitely something we're going to be needing to keep an eye on in the future because obviously there's plenty of huge restaurant companies that own the multiple different brands so this could potentially be a big area to watch with ghosts kitchens. I agree I mean I think there's a huge amount of capital Capex X and fixed investment into these restaurant chains in particularly in their abilities creek food and if you I said Jan if you're one of these big conglomerates with lots of different brands ends why not just leverage. It looks like the fatburger kitchens are going to be double due to doing double duty yeah so I think it makes sense at the same time. You're just seeing so much to this ghost kitchen virtual kitchen heat I think there's been a couple pieces around Travis Kalanick's in his investments over the past week or two so and getting big valuations so it seems like everyone's turning their attention to the space kitchen united just raised forty million or anymore yeah Z. in some ways I I think I always wonder like it's sometimes when you're watching shark tank and you see this like invention for like something really obvious you go. Why didn't I think that I think that's the case with just goes kitchen's like why didn't why didn't we think of this sooner because it gets really expensive to build physical retail locations and kitchens and if you're one of these big companies with a big network of them. Why would you think of doing the center right well. I think a lot of I mean. I don't think I know a lot of the growth with these ghosts kitchens hitchens's delivery and you know the fatburger news case in point. I mean the sister restaurant. The hurricane grow a hurricane wings and grill is only available through delivery. You can't walk into a fat Burger and say I wanNA order off the hurricane menu so I think think definitely just I mean I would go as far as to say. Delivery is basically cable stakes. Now we say that all the time around here are we gonna hit a point where for at least these large restaurant companies with multiple chain restaurants is the ghost kitchen at some point also going to become the norm basically yeah you make a great point in that delivery and the build out of that option in the maturation of it that UH rapid adoption of it by consumers really was kind of this lever that was pulled led to basically a bunch of cascading changes in that restaurant injury. I mean people are changing changed with the way they're designing restaurants now. If somebody chefs like Multiple Taizhou building in food delivery into their restaurants and then to your point I mean really early this type of development like a fat burger. really was net necessitate. It took food to over to really Kinda necessitate them think rethinking their business model and their network network kitchens to to essentially do this type of thing so I think you make your point there well. I think it's also just thinking about the prevalence of at based you know. Grub of endured ask reaching critical mass and then you know it's fascinating to me is the idea that they have all this data on what people are searching for and you know the ability need to go in and then you know create virtual restaurants that don't exist anywhere creates a whole other layer of it right so we're just at this real interesting sweet spot where there's enough penetration of the third party delivery services door dashes in all fifty states right now. Everybody has a mobile phone and how how'd you re architect or re rework your your restaurant to pardon me take advantage of the new style of eating as it were speaking of changing the game Chris. You've been writing about how stadiums are changing what they have in them with regards to tech and how they're kind of on the leading edge of of how do I do like the segway by the way it's okay. It's pretty great. I mean anytime you can work. The Game Plan in is pretty amazing battery at a pat myself on the back for them. Yeah that was a home run segue. Yeah actually agenda has been reporting on this as well. You know what sort of tipped it off was so there's announcement that went today. Zip in which does cashier. Let's check out for convenience. Stores is putting a cashier checkout convenience in store inside the Golden One Center in Sacramento and my first thought was like well. Duh Why haven't why haven't they ever been convenient stores in stadiums already. They're small. They carry a lot a lot of stuff but obviously a line would form in the smaller end. That'd be real annoying but the idea of having checkout line and not having a checkout line where you just walk in you. Scan your own own. Walk in grab what you want and leave like that's pretty amazing and also perfect for like a baseball game. We don't want to miss a lot and you wanted. Just you WanNa grab a Soda Soda. You don't want to stand in line and then you you know you're standing. There and people are talking at the at the menu trying to figure out what they WANNA. Get Right. You know it's it's this idea of a convenience store seems really smart and I think we'll see a bunch of them but that's also just the latest idea right like the Mile High Stadium opened up a different convenience store and they didn't use cashier. Let's check out They used a sort of this company called. Mass Gen creates a computer vision checkout thing where you just basically said all your stuff on this pad and then it looks and sees what all the ingredients what everything you're buying an audit gives you an automated total and you can pay right there but this also follows like those are front of the house things and in the back of the House you see flippy. Lippi was employed at Dodger Stadium Yankee. Stadium actually are two places to watch right because dodger stadium has flippy and post mates doubt and flippy the estimates. I believe which one dodger stadium. Yes yes so dodger. Stadium has flippy making Tater tots chicken tender's right. That's a robotic arm that just stands in front of a hot dryer and cooks up Tater tots throughout the game and and post mates pickup which Jen wrote about last week which is where you can order food from your seat and then go to the posts pickup line and grab it. You don't understand in line. That's pretty great so all these things stadiums are really really good places to test these things out because they involve a lot of people you know high traffic high volume areas and people you know. It's not a place where where people are trying to really into their food. They're not trying to personalize it so much. They're trying to just get something and get back to the game right right and what after all are stadiums than entertainment places where you know. It's still a little bit a. p. t. Barnum and kind of a circus like environment. I still feel like we're in that stage of some some of this technology where it is kind of like about entertainment like I feel like robotic food. Dispensers oftentimes are part of part of the show and that's the phaser and so it makes makes a lot of sense that stadiums would be a place and secondly just to your point Chris. You want to get back to watch game in getting people through faster and getting people back in their seats. I think technology can help that. I think everyone's happy. You're spending a lot of money. You're spending hundreds of dollars to go to the steam nowadays for an outing and do you want to stand in line for twenty minutes for a hammer well. I I think stadiums to you kind of have a captive audience as well which is one of the reasons that you know something like post mates worked so well oils because they would never as food delivery service they would never be able to reach this group of people traditionally gently with deliberate because you can't get outside food or drink brought into a stadium so set up a pickup station. That's more exposure to post mates but you know as you said it's it's a faster way to get concessions as well and then I think was it last year. Seattle addle the seahawks stadium. What's the name of that one thousand. Which one is it? Now's a T. mobile or centurylink. I think at Centurylink Glinka I think the mariners steam chain a right to team oh well they had clear in there too so you could scan your thumbprint to get a beer her as well which you know again as I think a stadium is a pretty like why wouldn't you WanNa try that as Mike said and part of the you know part of concessions at Sports Games is that they're entertaining so why not try and make them more entertaining testing out all these different technologies holidays. I think also introducing people like right now. There are a limited number of cashier's check out stores right.

"And when we bring people into the labs, or when we're out with consumer trials and talking to people that they loved the the outcome. And so we know there's value that we can deliver. And so this is now working together with those companies to new to start activating. And so we've started to do a little bit of the marketing, it's going to start to move into the appliance retailers. So twenty nineteen is really the year with that, that gets rolled out. I mean in conceptual terms, right? I think it makes sense to say, hey, let's move to new business models. If your way if you know, you're talking to a pint sick and they said, yeah. That makes sense digitize I want recurring revenue. I wanna persistent relationship with the consumer, but I mean, are they going to be patient, as we move towards like? You know, there's a big up front purchase consumer's gonna pop down fifteen hundred two thousand five thousand dollars for 'fridgerator. But it's gonna take a little time to figure out this recurring revenue thing. And are they going to be patient enough? Do you think do they understand enough? And do you think there's the patients to kind of get through this, what I think, is going to be a bit of a transition. Well, here's the good news is that, you know, some of these companies don't really make appliances. So, you know, some of them, for example, also make televisions or electron IX and, you know, in both in Europe and Asia, and, you know, there's a number of our partners that, that are in, you know, straddling these multiple businesses. And so if you'd sell televisions today, so you sell a four hundred dollar television. You know, the consumer is going to pay, you know, eight hundred dollars or thousand dollars in subscription fees for the content that's gonna flow with that television, so more and more of the prophet for those businesses. It's already shifted. And so now you can't buy a TV without being bundled with Netflix and Hulu and all the services. So for some of these companies that they have a very, you know, understandable, tangible, you know, analogy within their own company. That's helping them see this. And so we're engaged at the sea levels promotes to these partners because they understand it's very strategic. And in fact, you know, we, we can do things together that generate new, you know, net new opportunity and new for them in the in the long run, they're going to make more off the, the software and services and subscriptions than they are in manufacturing, the device. I mean is are you trying? Do you think it's an analog to you in the entertainment space, ultra over is Netflix in that, like your your, your movie studios are like the food providers and the food companies, and you're basically providing kind of interactive menu around which people kind of put the other their diet, not of entertainment, but of food? I mean, I mean, maybe it's the force analogy right? But, like there's going to be the Netflix in, like the digital kitchen like there's going to be like these new emerging companies that, like, emerged that weren't there before awards because they came from a digital Centric background. Is that what you're trying to be? Well, there's, there's a. A really clear analogy and I think it works. You know, for example, you look at how much people watch cooking shows in their living room. Right. There's already demand in the home to, to have a lot of this content to help get a better result in it's entertaining. But then they stumble back into the kitchen and they really struggled to make a real. And so now, you know, for example, our partnership with Google will running on these smart displays so there's literally no television on your kitchen. Counter. Now that's hands free voice controlled. And now we can have a customized cooking show for you. That's take you step by step through the actual products that just arrived in a grocery bag. So, you know, this is a very much along the lines of how consumers are, are living the rest of their lives. Just no one has put it together for them in the kitchen. And so we definitely believe that every vertical industry will have the software hubs, that, that really connecting together and create him services. We've seen that in all of these other verticals. And so, you know, we're working hard to make sure that we can. Bring all those pieces together and really work together with our partners, would not try to replace what our partners to deal. We're trying to connect it and enhance it and, and create opportunity for everyone and really centered around the consumer. Yeah. That, that kitchen screen, I've been writing about four years now saying, hey, this is like a white space, opportunity this week, gonna be screened. And I was talking about it before Amazon, brought out that show. But once they brought it out, I just it kind of crystallized for me, particularly, when I saw the change in behavior, in my own family, like having just this ever prison screen, and, you know, ever since then you've seen GE in pushing, there's, you know, obviously the smart displays I just think, like, if there's this, if you win that battle, and you're kind of the ever-present screen in the kitchen or Samsung with their family hub, that's a huge opportunity, and there's going to be the content and software partners that will want to be on on that end the programming partners. So I think that's a typical up to you guys seem. To have identified that you guys are honing in on your party with Google, and you're producing more and more video. So you think about this way. There's gonna be many pieces of glass in our life where, you know, you're going to interact with services. And so what we're doing is we're providing a consistent experience across all of those, so you may be on the train, ride home and wondering what's for dinner, and, you know, within your you know, planning and building your own meal, customizing, the pieces, you want, and then you hit by and the grocery show up, you know about when you get home and, you know, now you come into the kitchen and you're looking at your smart display. Then you walk over to your smart appliance, which also has a screen, and it's showing you something helpful to to prepare the meal. So you're going to have a lot of different interfaces. You know, eventually your air glasses, so many different places to consume media or to, to interact, and what will be really important is. How do you make that seamless? And so that, that's where we've been able to coordinate that. So you know, you're planning something or putting in your. Your preferences in one place, and they're now available everywhere. Kevin you and I are old tech guys you came out of, like kind of tech can competing side of things. We've seen some, some technology cycles, and there's always this nation. Right. And one of the things I'm seeing food is receding everything old is new again some kind of versed attempts. Then people kind of going back with drawing born. I think we saw that with meal kits. Right. So we, we seen a with milk at one point zero blue apron, we've seen it was shaft, which you guys partnered with early. Although I think they had some interesting ideas. But but you guys are trying to do meal kits now better. I think kind of like what you what out from categorize in terms of milk at two point. Oh, you know, the first round like a white blue apron, who's a subscription you kind of like how to order two weeks ahead of time in this next round of meal kits like you see in the grocery providers. Get in on it. You're seeing almost like instant delivery. The day of also more customization you guys are also getting into that business. Right. We learned a lot for milk. It one dot. It it really started to solve a problem like, you know, at home. My wife was a little bit nervous with some of the different cooking techniques. And so having, you know, the, the decision made of what's for dinner, you know, shipped to you. It's the right quantities. That's you know, you have a nice meal Carter that showed you a couple of steps that, that helped to build some confidence to really start to address a problem that people are ordering out four five nights a week. You know, they don't feel that great about it. They're trying to cook more at home, but maybe they're missing some of the skills, or it's still too hard or they don't have time. So it really started to address some of those core challenges in people's lives. It's really important. But it had a lot of fatal flaws, you know, you show up with ten pounds of ice packs, giant, cardboard box, and it's been in the men for ten days. I you know, I it wasn't necessarily optimally. It was it was a good way to, to prototype it. You know, in, in the market's view, but, you know, for us, we looked at that we said, all of the pieces, are there, there's partners that are provide H those pieces, Ellen's pulled it together. So, but we said is we're gonna pull the. Sort of, you know, to virtually in that process. So now you know with you know, we've always had this modular customized Neil approach, so that was a good fit. And then we all always deeply our company partners to understand their products had, we use the best. How do we have content, and, and digital sort of, you know, information to use them? So we'd already done a lot of that groundwork, personalized nutrition from our aquisition shopping. So we basically combined old that together. So now you could customize a meal, according to your dietary preferences, you hit by it goes to, you know, thirty plus retailers across the country on, you can compare prices you can pick someone that's down the street from instead of the ten pounds of ice packs, you know, now it's coming just down the street locally sourced so that rise on your doorstep. And then we take over with the step-by-step video guidance now tailored around your meal, and the products that you just purchased, and then for those who have the automated appliances, we can now sent a fourteen step Michelin star rest. Key to cook it. So we looked at that whole journey of, how do I plan shut up? Prepare and cook. And we, we basically pulled together all the digital pieces, so that each of those partners can have a better experience with the consumer so by going together with the industry, and working with retailers, working with the food companies declines companies, it should them now has more value that they can bring to the consumer. But the consumer, there's a single experience. So if you had to open a four or five different GPS systems to go from point A point B, you probably wouldn't use it that much. But, you know today with ways or Google maps, basically, you have one system that gets you all the way there. And so that's really what we're trying to do with that. You know that every single day, March of, you know, of how do I pull it all together to, to put a great deal on the table? Has there been any thought about, like, if you step back, the jute meal journey, kind of holistically, like, you're, you're at these decision points or your, you're, they're gonna cook, you're gonna Sean grocery shop? You may even my K I wanna maybe go out to eat. I mean. Stepping back even further in the meal journey. If you're in it and kind of giving people like an app to make these decisions like, would there be? Hey, here's all the options you have what you can go out to eat. You can order groceries, you have you have this food refrigerator. You know what I mean? Like as kind of stepping back further in that decision meal and meal journey process, and helping them..

"Here when this is Mike wolf, welcome to the podcast t show is here from what is perhaps my favorite session. From March two has an eighteen it's the session where I got together with some of my fever journalists on stage and talk to them about how they do their job. We had jewelry from wire we had actually cart Thompson from c net. Wilson Rothman from Wall Street Journal and Lisa McManus from America's test kitchen. And these are folks who I read all the time to understand what they think about new kitchen products. And I thought it'd be great to get them on stage and talk to them about how they're doing their job in an era where increasingly technologies having a say in how consumers cook in the kitchen. I just thought it'd be great thought it also would be valuable for people in the audience folks who make appliances who make kitchen products who sell them to understand what these folks think about and how they go about reviewing these products, and what some of their favorite things are what they hate about the new products in the kitchen, so. It was really fun conversation. I hope you enjoy it before we started to talk a little bit about CBS and how our live event went. It was pretty great. I'm sure many of you visited who visit the spoon saw a lot of the coverage were doing if you haven't made sure to go to spin dot tech, which had a great time to seeing all these companies in one room and talking to them, but their products, and you know, eating Greek pizza from like world champion pizza chefs, and it was great. So if you haven't checked out the coverage, go to spoon dot TEC. Check it out. All right. That's it for now. Let's listen to the podcast. I'm so excited. We actually have an extra person. So I'm going to grab a stool here because I read all all of your work and appreciated of the hard work. It is to review products and products are changing so quickly. So I want this panel to talk about this. And how you guys think about products in that kind of this merkich and era. But before we do that. I'm just going to quickly go to down the line and introduce you to say who you are because I think people know the general publications refer jewelry from wire Wilson Rothman from the Wall Street Journal, Lisa McManus from Americans test kitchen and Ashi Kurt Thompson was seen it. And what I love about. This is kind of each have your own the lens through which you look at kitchen products. Can you each very briefly kind of explained how you how you will if what wires lenses when you look at a kitchen product, I have a very low threshold for the S. And I think I can see it pretty quickly. I used to cook it a bunch of restaurant kitchens. I write about food all day. And then I go upstairs, and I cook in my cook dinner because it makes me happy. And if I just start trying to integrate it into whatever that tool is I usually have it for a month or two or three, and I just start trying to integrate it into my daily pattern, and if it's not working. Somethings probably wrong. But I also try to think about house my mom going to do this house. My sister who all's has even lowered pelerins BS like how she going to deal with it. How is some these grandma going to deal with it? And then somewhere in there, you kind of start to realize what's important, and what's not when you get tech product kitchen products. What are you? What is the lens through which the Wall Street Journal you look at? Yeah. I mean for us we're not going to be running through every product in a category trying to assess whether it's you know, this one gets a five in this gets a four and a half. We're really looking at or I'm looking at and my team is looking at what is changing about the way we are in the spending time in the kitchen like this device like for instance, adding WI fi to an emergency circulator seemed at first like a stupid idea. And then I realized wait a minute. Other people don't go to the internet. Find out exactly the right time to cook. You know, a piece of salmon at the exact temperature was a pretty picture Sam click button, and you're. Rica there, the kitchen change, and so that became something that we you know, we cover, but I also edit a lot like working, you know, a team of people who are all coming up with their own ideas. So there's a lot of this question. What does this really mean? And more and more. Now is it going to steal your identity when you plug in right? Will admissions test kitchen? I don't know if everybody's familiar with what we do. But we look at a lot of nontechnical kitchen products home cooks on the executive tasting testing editor. So I do product reviews as well as ingredient taste tests, and we focus on supermarket products. We focus on common cookware, and we do really practical tests to see which one is the best. And then try to explain why try to figure out why. And we really tried to not with people's money or time and get them the products that are gonna make successful in the kitchen. So when I I'm starting to incorporate more and more high-tech stuff smart things, and I think our audiences his gated likes to cook is somewhat affluent educated. And they wanna know when the should incorporate this technology into their home kitchens and seen as started mainly reviewing ovens. And stoves, and it didn't matter if they were smart or not. But over the years now it's been about three and a half years we've seen just an emergence of connected products, both large and small so my role has changed a little bit. In terms of the things that I review I found myself now, reviewing war, small smart appliances. And there's definitely a focus with with our publication on just the tech aspect of it. The people who read our say, not only are they interested in the latest Afon or Android phone. But they also want to know like, oh, my God is connected. Can I have this connected cooking system and things like that? So we review a lot of products even some that we might have seen on crowd hunting site that like made a lot of waves some things that are interesting, even if they're not connected, but just if there's if there's something that makes it a little bit different. It's probably my wheelhouse. And we America's test kitchen as brand around reviewing kitchen products. You you spend a lot of time with it would imagine you start to say you starting to review more tech forward products. How is the process change? If you guys had as publication had to say, okay, we have certain standards around types of products will review talk about how things change. Well, traditionally will do things like a spatulas and millions battles out there. A lot of these products are one of a kind or one maybe another ones come down the pike. And so we're looking at these things in isolation sometimes were comparing them to the divisional technology does this an improvement over the way. People Kartli do things is this relief practical is it really functional in terms of publishing them. It's been a little bit of a rocky road. Because. We had this happened with the June oven. I reviewed the first generation, right? As it went into kind of hiatus as they were preparing the second generation and my review gut sat on for a couple months didn't run. And then the new one came out at high jumped on it and pushed it through the we have a very long process of a lot of fact checking in various editors. It's not best. So it was we got it out quickly. Once this was done with it. I got the whole process to go a little faster than usual because that was frustrated and we're talking about how this changes are online for publishing. Joe you said you have this low tolerance for BS. I feel like I can read all your your reviews, you're writing your I can see this appreciation for maybe innovation makes a product better by also since very quickly when there's a noise and probably more, no more. So than with you Joe. So talk. The crank. He got talk about some instances of where you've seen products that have been integrated technology where you've just made you felt a the product backwards or didn't make the product better at all. Okay. I've got one. There's for me. I think this comes from me having cooked in a bunch of kitchen restaurants restaurant kitchens. I always want to be able to have the primary function of device be able to be accessed without touching my phone.
