"A sense that i do see a sense that you matter. That can all happen right at the front door or not. And that's when you know with any place you go to. You can go to your favorite coffee bar in your neighborhood. We all have stories of the chain that over the last ten years maybe be gone there. Five hundred times in you always order. You're coughing the exact same way. And they never remember which is a great way of expressly letting you know that you don't really matter and they don't really see a transaction by the way if it's quick and the coffee is hot and you keep coming back then. Transaction was fine. I can do it quickly in a dozen. Take me any longer while. I'm taking your money to smile in. Thank you and remember all to say what you like the usual and now you feel like you belong there and now have become essential in your life and that's what we strive for and that's frankly the reason that i loved this business so much. I'm really focused on his challenge. That i don't think i've seen a lot in our industry and that is can you successfully scale hospitality. Can you successfully scale a feeling of welcome very very different than the massive success that rake rock had in our industry in so many others afterwards. Which is kenya's successfully scale a system to consistently produce a flavor whether or not you ever go to eat fast. Food gotta give some credit to the fact that the fries gonna taste exactly the same coast to coast country to country. The nailed the systems for consistent flavor. But i will also tell you that i promise you the the way. You are made to feel coast-to-coast country to country is going to be vastly different because it just was never part of their calculus. Should we be able to scale a human feeling of belonging. And that's what. I'm kind of transfixed on is. Can you actually scale hospitality. I want to explore that idea in some depth but before we do lay a couple examples that i so love about the method if you will for creating good hospitality two things come to mind your acronym. Abcd and this great story around learning from a trout fisherman who overturned a certain rock when you were fishing with him. Can you describe how those two things might relate to each other and really backed a hospitality. Abcd simply means always be collecting dots. So you can always be connecting dots. And in this case dots some people would rather call data. But when i talk about dot i'm talking about a morsel of information that matters to you in if it matters to you than better mattered to me because if i want a matter to you i better care about something important to you. So if you're coming to dine in our restaurant. Abcd always be collecting dots. I better take a minute and check out who. Patrick o'shaughnessy has interviewed in the past. I might even wanna take it a step further and asked myself if i know any of those people when you and i first met and we established that leach. No bill gurley that was connecting dot. You did it for me. I would have done it on my own as i'm a big fan of bills. But that is abc dc abcd. This gets back to this notion that people really want to belong to something. I think people also want to connect with people and we look for things that we have in common. Which is the root of the worth community which were all craving. I want to belong to a community. I better start by finding things we have in common. It could be a sport team that we root for it could be that we live in the same state and now maybe we have that in common could be. We went to the same college or we were in the same fraternity at two different colleges. But were looking for that stuff. That's the collection of dots. And then when you connect those dots you're showing an interest in someone else and what happens is you get that interest back. The people component of all this and this whole circle us back to the ability to scale. Hospitality just obviously seem central. I love the idea that your company's people were evaluated with fifty one percent emotional performance forty-nine percent technical performance very deliberate. I'm sure which way that scale tips say a bit about that and again. I'm thinking about this trout. Fisherman turning over the rock and the care that it takes and how you engender that care to make sure that all the people that are interacting with customers have that same standard. How do you start to scale beyond just union square cafe to this much larger collection of restaurants and businesses around the country. Let's just take a second and tell the story about the turning over the rocks and that is all start by saying. I love fishing. I have never developed a love for fly. Fishing in this happens to be a fly fishing story but what i got out of fly. Fishing has helped me in business. And that is that. The expert fly fisher people even before they show their physical dexterity in fishing. They have to actually show an interest in the fish themselves before they can possibly catch a fish in the way they show interest in. The fish is to figure out what is actually hatching in the water at that moment. What kind of insects are actually hatching. Because the fish are smart enough to not eat something. That isn't hatching at that moment. A really good. Fly fisherman. Wades into the water turns over rock underneath which is a whole community of things hatching and the really good fly fisher sees what's hatching says a ha. I've got a tie fly. That's actually look like what's about to hatch. And that's what. I'm gonna tie at this moment if i want to catch those fish. So that's where this all came from. How does that apply to business. Will i think if you're in business. You want to catch his may fish as you possibly can also known as customers it sure does help to have a product customers actually want at that moment and furthermore as marketers and we're all marketing our product all the time it sure does help not only to have the product people want but to deliver it in a way that they cannot miss it it all has to do with taking an interest in who is your customer and having what they want. That's kind of what i think about all the time. And then how do you surround yourself with people who get that as well. I feel like leadership is about setting priorities. And then exemplifying the behaviors that you wanna see and other people. It is a priority of mine. An is an example that i do try to set all the time with everybody who works for us to follow through care as much about the customer. You want as you hope they'll care about you. Somebody writes you an email. You don't just write them back. It's inexcusable not to figure out something out them before you write them back. Does that take time. yes of course it does. However it's gonna most likely lead to a much richer opportunity if a good opportunity exists all. I've up to hear a bit more about the challenges of scaling hospitality. Even countered as you thought through this. I don't know whether shake shack appropriate to touch on here since it is much more scaled up repeated experience than single restaurant as you sit back and try to solve that french fry problem on the service side rather than the product side. What are the major challenges that you've encountered in ways you've got around them. Shake shack is a great example because it's a scaled business. There's over three hundred shake checks in the world and there are at least last time i checked something like fourteen different countries in which shake shack operates in shake checks case. You're not only scaling taliban but you're scaling a culture across many many many different cultures. It's a great example. It's an example of what we've been talking about which is taking an interest in other people so that take an interest in you. You better go in to a community whether it's in the united states or abroad number one with humility because no one in the world wants you to come in saying we're the big smart new york. People lay down for us and eat our hamburgers. It's just not how the world works at all so you go with humility and you learn as much as you possibly can about the community the same way. I talked about learning as much as you can about a prospective guest in one of your fine dining restaurants. Here's an example and this could be for any city could be any country we send in a team of people and take los angeles. Los handles was a great laboratory for this theory. Las californias sort of hamburgers central in the united states. They know everything about drive ins driving culture. They know everything about burgers and shakes and the last thing california needs is a new yorker telling them how to eat burgers..

"Like making wings on the Air Fire Oh. Man, that's awesome and the good. It is good. How do you do do you do? Do you go all the way up four hundred degrees for a long time or do you do lower for a longer time I think? We did four hundred for ten minutes and shake them out, and then put them back in, and then do another ten minutes, and then shake him around, and then do it, so it's a whole little process, but damn in a house, the that we, my wife and I love wings, especially my wife. Now were skirting around the whole pain almost thirty dollars for twenty wings. You know I know. I'm going to buy them. And now we got another thing that we do and little projects. And I bought my wife of the Las Kellyanne hot sauce from hot ones. And, we did that one, and then I bought her. Just came in the mail yesterday. Bomb which is the hottest hot sauce on on that really well? We're not gonNA normally, but we've always watched on hot ones that whenever it gets the Bomb D.. A. B. O.. M. B. that's when people lose it. Completely changes people go into a hallucinogenic states People have lost their my. They've completely lost the wherewithal the what they're doing and it's fascinating to watch, so we're going to give it. A little shot tested out. See how it goes hopefully. The baby minded too much Spicy Baby. Baby. Because like I guess we're pretty good with heat because the LAS Californias one was no big deal, anyway enjoyed that in May and here's the thing about the airfare Angelique. Obviously you know you've talked about it and Rostock. Talked about it before, but it's so emblematic of many things that are in life. We had the airfare for months months. Okay, and my wife and I will talk about it. Go. We're GONNA. Get that airfare I. We got to figure it out, and then we got to put it together then we gotta figure out how to Cook it and you build up something in your mind and in, and it was an air prior for us, but it's it can be multiple other things in your life that you build up and you build up and you build. Minds security. Occurring okay, then you finally once you do it and you realize you figure it out in three minutes or less, and it's like changes your life. You're like what the hell was I. Would you know what the hell was I doing this war? And maybe that's part of the Motivational Minute Russ said what your airfare. It's true, and sometimes it's going down to new career path. Sometimes it's it's talking to that person that you might want to start a relationship for sometimes. It's starting a new hobby whatever it may be. Stopped building it up, give it a damn shot. Go for it and next thing you know you've delicious winks that you can just eat and much down on so. I used it and then I kind of fell out Kinda. Like I'm only doing like What was it like French fries in there and I didn't do anything else. And then, and and then Angelique brought it up, and I didn't think wings in there, and now I do everything I do I. Do Salmon and are a dude. I'm down with airport. I'm down with their fire as well and so that's one of my. New Little Obsessions. Let's see. How much time do we have because I know? 'CAUSE, that's my take a little bit longer so I did WANNA. Talk about the last close over. Okay? Yeah, I wanNA, Cross over because. I think it'll be a little bit longer. The the question had the baby, but I didn't talk about the dance I didn't watch so for the documentary series. The part Michael Jordan's Chicago Bulls documentary series and last night, and we got to watch episode nine, because ten came on even later, and I'm savoring I'm I'm just spacing it out, and I'll watch it tonight. Actor, we wings, because we're gonNA make wings again. That's all you gotta do. People get air fires. All you do for about the first week and a half which is. So we're GONNA. Make some some but. It got me thinking last week and we talked about Michael Jordan and then about what what was rubbing me the wrong way about Michael Jordan, and whenever that happens in my life whenever I get something about me, sticks with me and bothers me. I quickly realized well. That is a reflection of me. There's something about that person. Not Michael Jordan's greatness on the basketball court matters. But, there's something about that that I and I do. Why is that bothering me? And some of it was his gluttonous when it came to leadership or how he might have talked to people, or or maybe even personal relationships. And I said Oh man. You know what I tend to do that. Sometimes I tend to be that guy, and and if I don't like it seeing somebody else. Maybe that's something I should fix within myself, but that wasn't. A part of another part. was that I said I was like man. He never talks about his kids and. And and I hadn't heard that, and I was like us because I I I always look at people and go. Oh, wow, they really talk about their kids take a lot of pride in their kids. Something I look at people and somebody tweeted me something that kind of sent me a little worm hole, because I was like man, he doesn't talk about kids. Maybe doesn't have this great love. I kid and Blah this person connected me to it. I guess they did an interview. And I read the interview later of his daughter and his daughter and his kids are looking at the documentary going. They're shocked to their dad to them is silly putty. He's been different. He's sweetest. You know just Kinda Gushing Dad and and the breakdown that I saw. Somebody said something that stuck with me, and and maybe why connect with Lebron a little bit more wildlife like Morris that Michael Jordan live. It was a private person living a public life. And Lebron is a public person living public life and I will probably San more of a public person living a public life, not obviously on any scale close to them, but I have to remember that with people that some people like that. They're more private yet. They they have their on a greater scale and I shouldn't knock him for that. Do you know what I'm Sayin' Russ? Like? Europe person living in public life, but it was something that I didn't think about and and. After doing more research like well, he is just the same kind of gushing dad. You know what I'm saying did. I, do know what you're saying. It's funny, though because I have lived the public life for almost almost thirty years now but something that someone said to me a long time ago was Oh, and this is when I first started, and someone had people who came at me and like Oh. You're bragging about your kids all the time. That's narcissistic. You're just bragging about their kids to come from you and you think so much yourself. And that got me so if you noticed I never really bragged about Britney and Ryan that much I brought him up every once in a while, but I always would think well..
"las californias" Discussed on Consumer Watchdog Podcast
"Jamie court I'm president consumer watchdog and this is the rage for justice report where we expose confront and change. I'm here today with Tucker Energy Project Electric Energy Environment Komo consumer watchdog. And we're here today because we're GONNA be talking about a very special Report on the State of recycling in California A. and Redemption in California California has a bottle deposit law and We get five or ten cents back on our bottles and cans been increasingly those nickels and in dimes are not coming to us. And now we have a look an analysis over the last year that leases performed a report called trashed which is available on our our website consumer watchdog dot. Org that looks at programs all around the world to see how we can do better. What we're doing wrong and how we do Better so Liza. That's the question to you what's gone wrong. And and what can we do to fix it. While the single biggest thing we've done wrong is not put any responsibility for the end of life of containers beverage containers onto the beverage industry that makes them and distributes them and markets them and because of that We have a system that's really jammed up In makes no sense We have restricted access. Consumers cannot get back their deposits because we rely on a system of recycling centers. That have been closing right and left and we don't make retail market retail supermarkets. Take anything back. So it's it's become a tax we're paying over a billion dollars a year in deposits and we're getting back barely half of it and it's becoming a tax and that's wrong there. Ten States in America that have a bottle deposit las Californias one of them. They're obviously countries around the world. That do it. So when you looked at Countries around the world. What did you find? Were the best practices. What are they doing that? We're not doing. And how are they successful. Well in the best programs with the highest redemption rates in the United States and also also in other countries in the world. The primary thing they do is they They have government Kind of craft the way the whole thing's going to work and then get out of the way. So what they do is they. Tell the beverage industry you guys figure out what to do with these containers. They give them the right to keep us the some of the funding or all of the funding all of the deposits that don't we'll get redeemed by consumers to run the system and they let them figure out how these things are going to get taken back including at retail stores The best programs all require choir that major grocery stores and others that sell these beverages have to take beverages back in store and refund the deposits they feature really efficient technology like reverse ascending machines. Where you feed the stuff back in and you get a store credit or cash They put it on industry and governments role is to set requirements like we want consumers to take back ninety percent of what they buy and if industry doesn't deliver that then there are consequences there are financial penalties or taxes axes or whatever. But you know that's what therefore is therefore to enforce the governments are there to enforce set the rules and enforce them and industry has to live up to it. What's interesting is in the report? You talk about model states. Like Oregon and Michigan Oregon's got an eighty one percent redemption rate meaning eighty one percent at the time people were bothering to get their bottles and cans redeemed for whatever the rate is there. I guess it's ten cents higher Michigan is almost ninety percent. Eighty nine percent Norway's ninety five percent. Germany has a ninety eight percent redemption rate California sixty six percent. That's when take out the fact that the curbside trash haulers are taking a lot of this is trash at the curb and they're getting are are are nickels and dimes John. So interested to read that No other state in America gives redemption rates bottle the nickels and dimes to the curbside. haulers are also have municipal contracts to haul all the trash so they're getting are nickels and dimes and California without any audits without any accountability. No other State has that no other nation has that but the trash haulers others have been doing really well And so the other problem with the haulers is contamination. So can you explain the difference between the When you redeem at a a a a machine at a grocery store which is they're few and far between but hopefully they won't be and when you put it in that single stream blue can at the curb? What's the difference? Yeah well there's a huge difference and that's exactly the RUB If you basically take your bottles and cans and totally isolate them from everything else. which is what you're doing when you take them back to say a grocery this restore their ninety eight percent clean and they can virtually be taken and marketed directly to processors who then take him to the world market or the domestic market wherever to make new bottles and cans? When you put it in a single been the blue bin the blue recycling bin that the waste haulers control? You are automatically creating contamination rate of least thirty-five percent because a lot of people you know put in stuff. That's not recyclable. Food things get gnashed up in the trucks and the waste haulers don't care because They're gonNA make money hand over fist either way they don't care for goes into an incinerator or landfill They're gonNA make money anyhow So what we're doing doing is just we're paying the haulers out the Wazoo for the deposits for handling the stuff and even give them grants to improve quality the rest of it When they're just increasing our contamination rates and in fact they're the reason why we don't overall market for this stuff and China slammed the door in our face? It makes no sense. They they shouldn't get these substance abuse. Basically we have a glass for instance going in these bottles and cans and then you have. Someone puts a a pizza container with a little too much cheese or pepperoni and then the shards of glass. Pick up that that. And then that gets in the rest of the material and you can't redeem to the Bosnian the bottles break the and and it just goes into land you're donating your deposits to companies that are making even more money off of you because they're keeping your deposit and they're also contaminating the stuff. Now what's bad. What about that? Not only is it ending up land. It's not ending up a useful product. You can't even be used for road cover so it's a stupid show. Everyone knows the system's broken. The questions nations. What to do to fix it to make it like the rest of the world We talked about the beverage companies. Now it's their rappers right if you're buying a beer if you're buying a bottle of Soda uh-huh candidates use whatever it is. They're using that rapper to make money so the theory here is if it's their rappers. They better make sure they're continually unused or being recycled in in a in an appropriate way. And then they enlist the retailers and they enlisted the processors and the handlers and then all the grocery stores get handling fees and get paid for having the machines but the beverage companies. Make sure that we get ninety percent return. That's your recommendation. My recommendation is set a hard redemption rate. You say okay. It's going to be eighty five five or ninety percent. Whatever you're GONNA set it and then you tell them they have to meet it? And if they don't have to find ways to frankly penalize them and it's done that way. Hey in some other places so we shall we have one piece of legislation coming up in Sacramento are next week Bob Wakowski has Senate bill three seven to to take many of the recommendations From this report actually the bill was just introduced this week a key Taco about what was what we like in the concept of the bill and then also what are some of the details. We really need to fill in well. The single most important thing that this legislation does is it hasn't vision and the vision is to basically Klay take the administration of this whole project of this bottle program away from the state which has done a terrible job and give it over to industry. That should technically know what they're doing. So so that is really valuable. Yeah that does sound like deregulation these you know we. We advocate for for government. Control in this case I'm presuming. It's because the beverage industry doesn't want responsibility for the wrappers everywhere else in the world except California here. Yeah yeah they totally do not want the headache of this. They don't want the responsibility. They got out of the responsibility in the mid eighties. When we pass the bottle law they vary greatly said? No no no. We'll be the recyclers of last resort resort. You guys create a system of certified recyclers will help them set up in our parking lot's. Everything's going to be the retailers retailers grocery stores they didn't want amy do with it and the deal was and they've fallen down on. The promise was that they were going to step up. Because you know we've got these companies which are different beverage. Companies are the ones that this bill make the brand that may make the brain but used the bottles and cans me and sometimes the same in the sense that if a retailer or has their own brand of Soda Like a wall at Walmart or a costco or whatever serving stuff but we found some interesting things like the distributors when they I put those nickels and dimes in. Because they're the ones who Tell the tell you when the consumer gives you a nickel and dime they keep the accounting that it always seems like you know in all the audits like the Walmarts Whenever they're audited they seem not to giving the state as many nickels and dimes as they're selling bottles and cans for and there seemed to be keeping the rest in one case was like over one hundred million dollars? Couple hundred million basically was calculated with the container recycling institute that they kept. I mean basically what they did was they under reported to the state. Really how many mini sodas and juices and everything else. They'd sold by a couple of hundred million dollars and a so. The state didn't realize there were a couple hundred million more dollars in deposits. That should have been circulated through the system ultimately found their way back to the consumer which is why when we say the redemption rate is sixty six percent when we report earlier in the year last year half the nickel we found it was really only a little bit more than fifty cents fifty three cents that consumers getting back directly because either people were taking the bottles and cans from them as bow collectors or there was like two hundred million dollars less in the system from what we paid in bottles and cans then was was reported by the so. So this is a total overhaul and remodel that will basically Start from scratch and say every bottle and Ken has to be accounted for. Every deposit has to be accounted for. We're in the beverage. Companies are responsible for getting.

"And welcome back to coast to coast Daniel carbolic with us Daniel around that was playing a dirty game they are you know financing terror groups Hezbollah Hamas once they stopped doing that well I think they feel what they're doing is very similar to what the US does in the sense that you know they support groups that support them and I think they feel under threat in the reason you know Iran is surrounded by seventeen different countries if you look on a map it's amazing most of what your enemy countries and I but they have been again as I noted before after nine eleven in after they helped fight the war on terror they offered that to negotiate issues such as supporting has the last in the end the US did not even respond to them so I think they're willing to to talk about all those issues with the U. S. comes to the table to talk about them they also work things out with Israel I think they would be willing to do that I would be dramatic yeah it now it's interesting guy it would be it if I could just say something about that Iran that most people would find interesting and I didn't learn this until actually visited Iran you know Ron has the second largest Jewish population in the Middle East second yes they do absolutely not only to Israel are there twenty five thousand Jews who live in in Iran most of them were born there yes and they have a Jewish hospital in Tehran which is received millions of dollars from the government and nobody harasses them that's right there said the gods are visited the synagogue there you know I think Iran is not the you know the back of the is that it that it's for trade I think it feels very threatened but I think it's willing to deal with the west and with the United States and with Israel you know in return for some modicum of security that's a fair deal yeah I think so you know for for both sides of they could recognize Israel's right to exist and we can't determine that and Saudi Arabia has basically done that yes one in Saudi Arabia is an interesting case though you know could because Saudi Arabia meanwhile you know you talk about state sponsors of terrorism in Saudi Arabia's played thirty games in terms of supporting groups like ice core most of the terrorists came from nine eleven where they came from that's exactly right and yet the U. S. is continue to partner with Saudi Arabia continuing to sell arms to Saudi Arabia as it just decimates the country of the admin you know which has the worst humanitarian crisis in the world no one even disputes that because of the US and U. K. A. backed war there you know backing the Saudi war there you know so there's a lot of double standards standards it play here who's another thing why are we working something out with Assad in Syria well that's another good question in his his father wasn't a boy scout but you know this guy was neat and easy he's not nearly as treacherous as his father was that's exactly what it is in fact a medical doctor and again I think you know the plan I think was to topple Syria ultimately that is not worked toppling aside is not work I think ultimately the country's decimated yeah it's been decimated you know the US may have to again to deal with him because of the fact that he hasn't gone away as it was expected but you asked a great question I think Saudi Arabia I'm sorry as Syria is a country the US could get along with and it's very interesting if you look at Syria for example it's one of the few strong secular states in the Middle East you would think the US would like to deal with them you know instead of some type of theocracy but you know we've shown them for some time so Jim church Daniel in Aleppo that has half my family records in there somewhere yeah well it's interesting because yeah I mean Syria is a multi cultural multi religious state in they prided themselves on that and again they have a lot of backing from various Christian churches there so it's it's one does have to scratch their heads sometimes about what you know the U. S. is decided what will be its friends and who will be its enemies let's take some calls enjoy our listeners are the best let's go to bill truck driving an organ Hey bell get a start I just got a few questions and you know that they may have called plug the answers but I agree with a lot of what you're saying is a general sense but my questions are simply that what do you have an opinion on the role of neo cons to DO conservative because you mentioned LA they for a do you have a perspective on Donald trump's role with them all all of this you believe that Donald Trump is independent from the military industrial complex for its employees hi to interesting questions near constant Donald Trump yeah better thanks to great questions so first of all yes we see the hand of the neo cons I mean probably neo con number one John Bolton is now the national security adviser he is in the economy has been pushing for war in theaters that go on in Venezuela trump has at times even said that I think trump said something like yeah well John I want to learn or anywhere you know since it is so we do see the hand of the neo cons who trump was very critical of during his campaign but we see them back in the White House making policy possibly pushing trump towards a war for example with Iran so then it does the next question that you had naturally follows from the first and that is what is trump's role with the Nikon so first of all one has to wonder if he doesn't like to Nikon's why did he appoints some right John Bolton like Elliott Abrams you know and that and I I couldn't I'm not certain of why he did that he seems at times uncomfortable with them you know the interesting thing about your question is trump independent of the military industrial complex in the the book that was done fairly who recently by the guy from the Washington post not burn seen the other one I'm forgetting his name help me out George would work Bob Woodward did that book on trump recently and the one part that folks have not focused on is he talks in that book about how trump tried to take on the generals tried to take on pushing took us towards war and that you know we may have lost that battle so it is very interesting to ask ourselves how much is the president of the United States independent he has shown some restraint though I agree with that and again look at the money be clear you know my own biases I didn't vote for trump I'm not a Republican I I lot of things about trouble I don't like but I will say this about him he has shown restraint you know when the apparently we had sent planes to bomb Iran recently after they shot down the unmanned drone in trump said people people in the back yeah uses they shot down in a non mandrel why are we going to kill people so what a nice thing when it comes to the president I think there's always countervailing tensions and things pulling on I think we have to appeal to the president whoever it is to their better angels and say Hey we want more that restraint in didn't ran by the way say during that episode that there was also a plane full of military soldiers US soldiers that they said they could have shot down but they didn't but they didn't also right so they have shown restraint so what I think those types of incidents certainly give me somehow you know that that cooler heads then they and I think it's up to us the citizens in a democracy to really make it clear that's what we want we don't want another war you know and I think that there's some wherein trump who also doesn't want another war we're taking your calls with Dan Qemali his books the plot to overthrow Venezuela let's go to Michael in Virginia beach Virginia hi Michael thank you so much George Dan Kaballah guy I joined in a little bit by I'm sorry your please spell your last name for me before I go to my question las Californias K.

"Is fierce patriot tangled lies to come to sharp. A man I only knew before as, as the civil war, general, the man who led the March to the sea that broke the confederacy this eighteen sixty five possibly is the man, who was the second to go grant at the siege of Vicksburg that was critical to turning the war in eighteen sixty three. But this is the full picture of who Sherman was before grant. And he worked together in war-fighting, which was ugly and the horror of the civil wars ahead of us. But before that sherman's married, and he goes off to California. Again, this time he gets there because there's this, pulling the Ewing, family. They want him to leave the military to resign his commission to work to work for the family property. Is that the tension he feels Bob? Yeah. They want him to get out of the military. It, it, it isn't considered an. And he is in a situation where he, he really is. He feels is very careerist been has been deeply compromised by missing. They Mexican war. So he he's not that hopeful of his military career, and he's not he's, he's used to it. But he, he doesn't realize how much enjoys it until he ultimately leave for a while. But at any rate, there's all this pull to try to turn him into a banker and Sherman wasn't a great banker. He was a careful banker. But probably if you believe the adage, that all money is made at the margins then Sherman was not a good guy. He he was about calculated risk. They send him seven Cisco, and he comes up against what you'd have to say is a wild scene of rascals and bankruptcies. And all of a sudden people making promises they can't keep at this point. I think yeah, bra Braxton bragg's brevity Colonel Hal expen- promoted, and, and Sherman was still a first Lieutenant, I don't think it was a captain yet. So he takes a six month leave. And he heads off to San Francisco. He was it was a man of rectitude. He believed in law and order yet a permanent sense of discipline, and San Francisco looks to overwhelmed him did it did it Dr into despair letters to Ellen say that, that I'm defeated. He's getting there. His worst days, are actually in Leavenworth, Kansas. But things don't go well for him on, and it's in a second time in California. He does when he gets there, there is almost immediately or run on the banks, and he performs pretty well because he's again, fairly careful he had enough capital that he could cover most of his loans. And he did though have a week nece in that he extended some credit to some military, some of his friends from West Point Braxton Bragg, Don car rag among William hardy, George Thomas all major for the war. And he had to make good on those investments out of his own pocket, how much he actually lost is hard to nobody. It was time to make money too. And after that he established himself meet in a very nice neighborhood and started pretty much living large. And of course, one of the things about Ellen besides, you're very religious nature was her dedication to shopping. So she was always a costly bride. And the Ohio Princess never changed her whole. No, no. But in the meantime, Howick was interesting, he, too left a service, what happened was towards the end of the his his time in California. How became because they were working on the California constitution. He became an expert on land ownership and soon set himself up as a lawyer in San Francisco. And under the unlikely name of peachy buildings and Howick. And they were the, the in terms of title. They were the goal the gold standard, and he made a fortune, in California will become commander general and chief of the army. That's why we keep mentioning him. And they will do all the way through the civil war. It's a treat to think of Haluk wandering around San Francisco being a being a wealthy man. Always thought of him is that the character you described the punchy guy who looks who's got a wondering eye and, and his grumpy at the war department. I'd never thought of him in, in any other fashion. No, he was. He made himself. I mean he was a remarkable guy that, that one scene, when they're calling it around on their way to California, California on the sailboat and heloc is has tied himself to a in a storm. He's tied himself to a to the wall, so he can write and study. That's how come the boat to California. Now we come to a part where Sherman has vision of the transcontinental railroad. And you say it's in his letters to Ellen does he also right to the war department. This time his brother now is an up and coming politician. He's in the house of representatives, John Sharman, who will be gone, extremely prominent. Yes. And John so impressed by this that he has published in Washington. And yet again, Sherman gets this bit of notoriety, and people really read this take it seriously. He's very well form. I mean, this is the guy that was shipwrecked Weiss on, on his way to California. Ellen was even shipwrecked at one point there. They had a deep deep personal desire for a transcontinental railroad. I think, and keep that in mind because Sherman will be a principal in creating the conditions for the transcontinental railroad after the war, we're moving towards the war. It's like the, the thunder you can hear off stage. You know, it's coming, but we're building the conditions for it because Sherman has experiences all over the country has been in Florida certainly been up and down the Mississippi comes from Ohio. He likes Saint Louis lot. We've mentioned Fort Leavenworth. He's spent time in. San Francisco and in the south of Las Californias. Well, the missions and also dealing with the gold rush Sutter's mill but now we take him into one. I'd say one of the strangest episodes, contrary to everything you assumed at the time, even bringing into question, his loyalty, right before the civil war. He's run out of good ideas about serving in the army, and he's offered a job to lead a seminary in Baton Rouge to turn it into a military, academy. And the people who hire our Braxton Bragg and a man name Beauregard, who's Beauregard who are brag what do they want him to do? Well, basically PG ball regard becomes one of the best generals in the confederacy and Braxton Bragg is nowhere near as good. But he, he was very important general in the confederacy. And you know the question that, you know is like the dog that didn't bark. The question that Sherman never ask. Why do these people want to establish a military academy down here in eighteen six? He was strangely blonde. To the whole issue of slavery and secession. He just didn't wanna hear it because basically could lead to the break-up denied states. He just he wanted to just saw pedal it. I think he, he, he described, you know, we have to treat the south like a dog without a tail or something like that. Just pretend we just don't see slavery, you know. And so he kidded himself that this secession crisis wasn't building. And of course, it hit it, shattered, his, his brother. John Sherman wrote him about this. You, you make a note. The John Sherman endorsed Hinton helper, who is the author of the impending crisis in the south, that's one of the books that everybody talks about at the time we know wars coming. Well, Sherman was embarrassed by that. And actually John actually took back his, his. His endorsement of that book and it, it actually cost him being elected speaker of the house of representatives got because he endorsed because John, John endorsed, the book put it put Sherman kind of on the hot seat to and Sherman. Again, you know, he just was confronted by bunch of these politicians in Louisiana and basically said, you know, I, I have no problem with slavery. You know, and my brother is my brother and he just they convinced them that it wasn't a problem with him, which it wasn't until they decided to secede Lincoln, Israel elected in the fall of sixty he's going to be take the office in the March of sixty one remember this before they changed that term to January and in that interim the confederacy starts to form it self, I South Carolina than the other states follow. So it's impossible for. Sherm to ignore this. His brother invites him to Washington and my note here says that's when he met Lincoln for the first time. Yeah, that was the first time he, of course, did resign from the military academy, and there was actually they thought he was very effective. Leader would have been glad to have him. Stay probably glad to have him as a confederate general, but he he had an interview with the governor that was funny. So, you know, governor is good to see, you know, the next time I see, I may have to hang you, and he sort of could say that in a laughing way, but, but anyway, so he sort of was cooling, his heels, not sure what to do. And John thought, well, you know, this is the time to bring him to Washington. And so he gets a, a meeting with of president ABRAHAM LINCOLN and Lincoln as he meets Blinken several times over. The next couple of years, Lincoln have a vivid memory of does Lincoln talk about him or is he just one of the one of the young men, who well he's is in his forties. But one of the young men who bounces by me, and I'm always looking for talent. He, he seems to remember Sherman, like can't cite a quote that said, you know, and Lincoln's looked our and said, who is that guy? Boy, we need guys like that. But on first meeting it was early in Lincoln's presidency. And the white wherever the office was that Lincoln was meeting in. I don't think it was the Oval Office, then it was just filled with people, and he came over and John introduced him, and he sat down for a moment, and he said, well, how are they getting along down there in the south? He said, this is my brother just up from Louisiana, and he said, well, how do they get along and Sherman said, they're getting along fine? They're preparing for war. Four. And at this point, no shots had been Fard and Lincoln said, well, I think would get along with this, and he got up and left and Sherman stormed out of it. A White House and was standing on the on the pavement, you'd be rating. John saying, you know, you got an assist hell the message. This guy doesn't even know there's going to be a war. Let's go to war. The book is fierce patriot tangled lies William tecumseh Sherman, Robert L O'Connell is the author next. I bull run. I'm John bachelor. America is offering absolutely free.

I think I'd never been further west than Chicago. And all of a sudden, it was like you have to move out of your house where still lived with two my college roommates if to quit your job just to go, right? And the job I was working at the time. I worked at a magazine called weird New Jersey for three or four years. And if you if you most people would not know that magazine, but I I will tell you anybody who grew up in New Jersey who's around my age or young girls. Right. It's it's it's an institution, it's an institution. And if you think about sort of ethos of New Jersey, it is sort of local legends and myth making with a pretty clear policy of who cares. If it's true. It's a fun story. And a lot of these stories are rooted in some shred of fact, and then grow out of. Control. So I fly out to California quit my job there.

And I'm terrified overwhelmed a walk on the boardwalk. I eat a fish taco for the first time in my life, one of the loneliest and most overwhelming cities to be especially if you don't know anything about Las Californias in isolating and you feel it immediately incredibly isolating. Like the idea of going out for a walk. The city's just kind of like you can't really do that like kind of laughing. Yeah. I go on one question. Yeah. The fish talk. Anyway, what was the size of that thing? It was pretty small. I was shocked at how it wasn't a big. They had. No, it was not a big fish tacos, a small fish. I like that you thought that was the moral. So we were going that was the end of the story. But I thought that might be a little funny. She said fish.

I propose that we ridiculous history endeavor to do an episode at least one about every US state like Sufiane Stephen style yet, but we'll actually do you think we will them? Yeah, because we're not making a whole album. That's true, and we kind of have to do the show until we kill over. So yeah, it's in our contract at the language which we signed in blood. Yeah, I'm okay. Then I'll raise you one. Let's do one on every state and territory every state and territory. Yeah, historical territories are current territory. Now you got me. I don't know what the different, you know it will be there. I bet you will. We'll wrap up our fiftieth state f. Episode and then we'll say, we want to do more territories. It'll be learning. Adventure will be we're off to the races. We are traveling today in spirit in mind to place that both of us love the state of California. I'm a huge fan of California. I love it. Spite the traffic. Am I right. Bumper to bumper, the the one, the five, the four? Oh, five, five one. The UM that's not really was real. I gotta tell you though. Los Angeles makes me tired. Well, it's sprawl that it's like it takes forever to get anywhere. I mean, not that we're not used to that here in Atlanta, the Travis quite bad, but the geography of of Los Angeles very spread out. And yeah, it's it's a bit of a slog to get anywhere. But boy, do I enjoy it when I find a cool area that I, that I dig like got a friend who is in Highland Park really liked that whole area and like Silverlake and all that stuff. And we actually have a studio there with our comedy division. That's right in the heart of Hollywood Boulevard, yes, yes. It's headed by our pal, Jack O'Brien, who was the founder of cracked dot com. I wonder if Jack O'Brien knows the mythical history of California, the name, at least he might. He's one smart hostess cupcakes. What he. He if he knows this history, he is exceptional person because this was new. I hazard to both of us hazard away because you're right. Yeah. So one one thing that I think occurs to many school children here in the states is this moment of a pithy where you're looking around at the name of the state in which you reside or the names of other states, and you go, hey, that's a weird word. You know, Oklahoma, for instance, that's a weird word, right? California. We just all accept his normal sure, but it's a strange word. I think there's this overarching notion that most of the weird word states come from native American words, right? But that's not entirely true, especially not in today's case. Yes. Today, we are exploring the strange story of how California became, you know. California, California, California, I love that sketch sketch, yes. So right now it's used by the term. California's used by three different places. It's used here in the US the name of the state of California in Mexico. There are two states. One is called Baja California and Baja California sur. So south Baja, California this, right? I think originally California was called Las Californias province of the vice royalty of new Spain. Healthful doesn't exactly roll off the tongue. No, it doesn't. But where is California business come from, then we, we were startled defined. There were several explanations, but one of the strongest in the one we wanna focus on today is the idea that the name California came from a work of fiction. It's right. A work of fiction by a gentleman by the name of Garcia Rodriguez demont Avello I think that's okay case. Now we're not gonna console case. He's he's. He's a francophone. Yeah, he's not a spend Spagna phone. Was that a word. Doesn't matter. And he wrote a novel, a romantic swashbuckling, kind of epic part of a series called Los Sirgus s blend yon, which means the exploits or adventures of splendid on yet. This was around the turn of the sixteenth century and largely thought to be inspired by real life
