"And how you guys came together on that. I think that's the fun part to about doing barrel. Picks with you guys is like yes. It's young whiskey but it it's has it's so unique and so different from your typical standard kentucky profiles you know yes. Those are great but they all have similarities in with you. Know your offerings. It's like something that you can be like. Look yes this is four euros but look at how much you know. Vibrant flavors are that are not in your typical kentucky bourbon profile. Yet you know. So it's it's what i like about. You know the the good younger whiskies out in the market. You know on his point. That's a good point. So yeah i guess it is a little bit. I guess from there like all a little bit older like you know our age. You know what a product yada is like you like. We have twelve year old whiskey. Sit in the back But if like you're like hey like the flavor profiles. I don't like things like that i can. I love the work around next mci. It will make sure you have you be. I would agree with that. Absolutely what if. I'm just getting I guess you could say greedy. And i'm just like i just want more sample that lettera. That's i can smell. I can smell that. Yeah we're not here to just get drunk. We're here to do business. This is a fun experience and maybe a lot of people don't do this on a day to day operation but generally let's just say we have six group size in their one person's on the financial line for it other guys that are on their day off for good dagda right. I get paycheck for buying. Its own barrels. I do this for a living. This series so kinda. Take all that in consideration at the same time i mean could. Yeah i mean. It's a little bit like a i. Guess your reputation on the line like you know i mean they are picking the bears. Same time like you're saying like hey. This is what i thought. The best product was out there too as well. Well a different thing that i see both of our programs compared to a few others is for better lack words in charge of trading in selecting these barrels versus somebody who is just getting x. y. and z. Box from bottling or someone up the corporate ladder that says hey. This is a is offering this month. Not everyone has the privilege which down with the d. wall and So cool to be a part of the there is nothing better like seriously them seeing that fresh barrel head and pulling first sample of barrels becoming a bauge taken back in taste. And i'm like yeah. I mean it's it's truly fascinating the be part of that. Not just being like you said. Hey here's the barrels. That we chose for the program so far. So yeah because you make a good point because a lot of master distillers or other people that they're not involved with the. The single barrel program are deciding that these are. Here's your allotment and whatnot. You mean you mean the medallion on the side that says the master distiller pick is actually master. Distiller pick ryan probably more of the quality. Control all going through that but it happens it happens. I'm sure he's one guy who didn't soul there. You go you go. So what is some of those things that you shouldn't do or like. Can you talk about some stories without naming names that are like bloopers of things that have happened. You're just like is just don't do this please. Well we don't need to stay up all night the night before and be drinking all morning. Have i'm sorry it happens. Every he took me to level before big one night. i mean. let's not blow out our pallets on indian food the night before. Or you know something funky on the way up. Like that's one thing. I i try to keep cognizant of when i'm doing tastings or a select and barrels like that might not be a big thing but i mean don't go eight like garlic. Alfredo i mean visits going to affect your taste buds. Stay as we all know. But i mean don't get drunk and show up and probably the number one thing. 'cause i don't know i was saying this is an experience of people just think it's all drinking off on but i take this serious. I mean this is my perception on how this is supposed to be done as an industry standard. So let's kind of respect that and have a good time and not overdo ourselves. Because do you want come back or you just want to have all star. Good time the one time you know. Yeah well get you blacklisted from barrel. Yes if you're able to. If you'd that controls the allocations you controlled blacklists. I guess i would say Mant coming from a former like person. I used to smoke cigarettes. Like people like waiting on like you know a person to get her. We're gonna go outside and smoke a cigarette smoking cigarettes and then i come in being in a room and you can you can stuff is potent like you can smell that on somebody or I've had people drink drinking coffee as for doing a single bros selection what these rakoff like literally drinking coffee like starbucks like in sitting in the barrel rooms dot one that trump's that off this guy is to get super upset about the cigarette thing too but i just kind of wash that out of my mind. I had a guy come in. He pulls out kodiak winter. Green dip looks at me. And i was like got to put that. He asked me for a spinner. And i was like no. And you've got to put that in right now and he's like yep he's been drinking whiskey with dip in my mouth ever since i started. I'm not gonna stop and long all right You guys are buying it. So all jam larry's man nothing like winter green skull. Louis say the only time. I've done that in my mouth. Oh yeah i want to throw up to like. I don't know if it's a blooper. But i won't mention what group away we had like a. I wouldn't a brand new bourbon group. That came about right like they just didn't even know all their members though worst the facebook groups yes are they really so this facebook group coming in so they haven't met all the members there in like they auctioned off like come in help. Pick the barrel will. There's just couple down. There that came in the steeler in like the lead of their group neatly greeted him right. Like like you're here for a barrel picking. They're like yeah so they come with this this tour they come up in the barrel room they do the barrel pick in the barrel pick room and at some point you know. We had a sample secured out. They slam him back like him and his wife and he says something like. I usually don't drink whiskey. Always try to fight people and like the whole the whole. Tom like it's. It's an awkward tension instrument. Everyone's like what is going on. And then they just get up and leave. They were never even part of the group like they weren't even be or on the tour. They sat through a whole hour and a half presentation of single barrel in I still think about. I still think about that. Like randomly barrel pick crasher damn posed. You felt bad for the guy leading it because it was like you know he just put together suburban group. And he's like guys. This is totally my fault. Like i told the come with us and come up here. He's thirty nine inches to be here. Preneurs from vermont. Middle company capitalist desk intercapitalist yet. So i wanna. I wanna poke one more thing. They're like wire facebook groups. Say why do why do you think there is it. Just it doesn't feel like there's a foundation there yet or is it just like as an.

"And get caught up with emails is usually how it works. Yeah yeah andy. Noah shipping out samples on on that side things so starting off. We did ship out just because you know people like. I can't make it to you really. Are you know your reps out. There excited like these accounts have been pushing your stuff like they wanted to a barrel. But now we've learned our lesson I won't ship out any samples. Unless i have a selection date now so like are you wanna pick a barrel. That's great. give me an exact date. I'll make sure the samples or there by that time because it does free up being a craft. So i think they forget you know we. We make ten and twelve barrels. A day peerless. So it's not like. I have thousand single barrels in my arsenal. No problem. you know. We're talking maybe at tom. I may have fifteen barrels at that time. That i can we. We consider single barrel quality. Will if i got three out on the market for a month united does me. No good just takes two out of the inventory See we're very very strict on that part now with the cigarette just because you know we wanna make sure lee connect with everybody. We can and give everyone the same experience. So we've we've come to the conclusion now. That coming in person is by far the most authentic way to be able to do it. Your own coming. You're moving you're doing over doing over. Volume is is okay. It gets it gets the job done. It's nice doing them in your sweatpants the same time if you come in in we decide that we're the barrels that selected for us to taste that day aren't the direction that you're wanting. We can pull some other samples if you come in and say. This is what. I'm looking for x. Y. and z. Characteristics in this rye whisky. Then i'm gonna go ahead and pull those barrels or poll samples from that and not waste our time on something. You want full robe robust spice or do you want floor on delicate. Let's let's let's talk about it. Let's get this figured out instead of to kind of bring his tiresome one. That's ever been like so difficult and they're like i'm just not feeling it is in your like i. You know i i. I can't please you. You know well. At a certain point you got to cut draw line because you personally liable. I mean i can't just have it all all you can drink a fair there and just let them walk out the door so you you just have to draw the line at some point and generally i mean i personally curate all the barrels for the program and have a team that works with me on approving those too so i know there's something good on the table. It's not like i've just been circulating. See six for ten months way that other distillery might have other things to say exactly. It's a great point You know there's three of us so get the curate. Every barrel that goes in the program but the good thing is to make it in the program. There's myself caleb in nick. All one of his calebs niceness give everyone veto power so as he was saying like we know. These are some of the best barrels. We have that are in the program Just because if you know. I'll like it knicks. Caleb doesn't like it it doesn't go in or vice versa So that's one thing about. Caleb which i think is very respectful that he really does value. Everyone's opinion in everyone's on that panel for reason because we do have good palettes and buried different also love because i'm not a big earth guy on the palate so you know i look at those on my guy but is it bad barrel or is it just not my flavor snow years yeah in whereas kayla comes in. He's like he loves those. I mean that's like one of his favourite foot profiles in a barrel. Speaking of things that are kind of off profile abroad some bottles with us. And i think everyone has a poor of the wilderness trail pick that i brought the bourbons. Oh actually brought to teach bourbon sewer class at the distillery and we do a barrel pick at simulation at the end. If you will so we'll do a barrel pick at the end and will offer three different cash strings That you can select for it so the barrel that were we have poured right now is something that i actually kicked out of a a wine up one day and i was heading home to launch now is thinking about it and i was like did i really not like barrel or was it just different. Was it just the most off the wall barrel and the whole lineup and house like yeah it was as to go back and give it another another touch and i ended a bottle on. It said it is blended out small batch or something like that. But i'll let you guys try it out so that that's something i'm curate barrels. To like i there's a there's a difference in going through their for quality control and saying this has falls this has flaws like i need nick's it and there's a difference in going through in tasting and saying hey. This is a barrel that i needed for my program. This has these nuances the national profiles than maybe what were standard core. Kind of family is if you will so when you think about when ryan would come in like i know that you will have gone through extensive research if you will of tasting and whatever it is that goes then. It's probably the best part of the job. That makes sure that you're chasing the best whiskey that possibly can company distillery for this. If you give us three samples. And i'm like i don't. I don't know if something's here for us. Is that okay or is it like slightly annoying. You know it's you would think it may be annoying but honestly one thing Me personally i guess with our program. I love the brutal honesty. Like don't sugar coat like tell me why because it helps me figure out like all right. Was it bad barrel. It's like just not his like what are you looking for. So that's why also to before they come in always talked to the groups like what are notes that you liked. What don't you care for. Your consumers don't care for. I don't find it annoying. But may that's just me just because i do like a good challenge to. I'm usually reserved like how i'm like. I'm like i know like people like you. All put a lot of work into this and so when you bring up. I'm like okay. This is this is what it is. And i don't know what they're doing to be hate to be a you know a picky person be like odd guys like that. I don't know about. Fortunately we haven't had to do that at both. Your is operatives. Say one thing. Don't compare our products to eight and twelve year old whiskey. That is your favorite. That's that's not are offering. We're selling four-year-old year old whiskey. That it is what it is. Don't come in and say it's young. Needs two more years things like that. If that's your opinion that is your opinion should try to teach also loves sixteen year old weeded bourbon from wilderness. Trail trust me. I i think anyone at the table. I would want it more so it is what it is like. Don't say it's young things like that. I now extended by that. But we're not out here searching for ole whiskey if you're in the market for that then don't come to me. We don't need to buy something for the sake of buying it. Don't buy something because you're there by something because you loved that barrel that something that you want to bring back to your store your group and tell a story of your experience with us what you think about us.

Don who writes me on fred. Minic dot com okay. I'd be lying to you. If i didn't say i wanted to be the above the char question. I'll ride george here you go. You're you're here on above the jar. What is your dental routine before competition tasting. Wow i've been asked a lot of things george. I don't think anyone's ever asked me about my dental routine First of all this is actually a great question early on in my career. I was around a lot of a master somali as and a lot of people who were in like wine tasting competitions and they would always tell me to not brush your teeth before a major tasting To don't eat any onions or things like that. And i remember weighing my my dental Prowess over my palate. And i would go through times of not. You know brushing my teeth and i would taste and i was like i felt like mike tastings were actually off when i didn't brush my teeth. And here's why there's a film you know there's like a gunk. There's a a grossness to your mouth when you don't brush your teeth daily or floss or use mouthwash now so you have a layer of like crap on there. I can't give you like the scientific terminology here. I can just give you that like when i don't brush my teeth. I got me some dragon brad. So i'm trying to prevent Dragon breath tasting scenario so Yeah i do brush my teeth. I use mouthwash i've lost. I mean i don't wanna be tasty and have last night stake hanging up in there. And the on the top half the decaying out and creating flavors on my palate and i just don't want that so what i have found over years of experimentation. Is that if. I don't take care of my proper enough. I don't take care of my teeth if i don't go through that process Then it will have a huge impact on my tasting for the negative. So i have no issues of whatsoever with brushing my teeth going through my daily stuff. What i've learned is when you try to change something then you screw your palate up and that's just my take Every taster is different. And you know when. I am doing competitions or be people who won't brush their teeth. Am i talking to them in close proximity absolutely not. But that's gonna do it for this week's above the char. Hey if you want to know about any my grooming techniques before tasting be like george. Hit me up fred. Mimic dot com. That's fred mimic dot com. And maybe you will be read on the next episode of bourbon pursuit. But that's do it out there. Everybody be safe out. There cheers back to burma pursuit. The official podcast of urban kenyan here today talking about one of the most favoured subjects that we get to talk about on this show and that is private barrel selections. We've got our own private barrel selection program we've done almost over a hundred of them now and it never gets old. That's the point is not. It's i mean it's the tours geld but not the barrel. There's nothing wrong with tasting more and more whiskey and so we're going to be joined here by two guys today that are gonna kinda give us an insight into more of the the nuances that you see behind the scenes of a barrel selection program. We've talked about barrel selection ryan you talked about being unicorns all time. Yeah i mean everybody used to get geeked out over a limited editions which is fine. But you know the true unicorns me are single barrel selections. It's y- you're getting your own. Pick your own peril and it's something you know. The perfect thing about bourbon is like with a single girl selection. It's never going to be replicated. You're never going to have the same. Would you're never going to have the same climate that you know that barrel experience for the forwarded however long it's been and so it's a truly unique barrel for for you or your grouper. Whoever is foreign. It's always special. On like i said they never get old. They're so much fun. And we talked about the experience a lot but we never talk about the actual people behind it and what they have to go to show up all right. Where's the whisky guys. But you know there's there's a lot of stuff that happens behind the scenes of actually going through taste testing and make sure these barrels fit the program and ling coordinated all these you know. I thought her cat if i was good at excel spreadsheets. Guys are probably masters at it. So there's all kinds of stuff they gotta deal with crap like that so let's go ahead and introduce our guest for today so today on the show. We have macaulay mitten. He calls himself the barrel guru over wilderness trail distillery and we have john way del he is the single barrel program curator over. Peerless guys welcome to the show. Thanks for having us. Yes thank you. So thanks for bringing whiskey. Yeah absolutely got it. We always unless we have single barrels with us ear ends a good. Peerless distilling We got an absence finish here. So it's getting crazy here now. Let's go ahead and we'll rammer station. Might get weird absently. Guitar have seen cake to. Yes dash that in. Yeah we need to look into that. So i want to talk a little bit more about Each one of your programs macauley kind start with you first You know kind of give us an idea of like. How did you get into you. Know the whiskey and bourbon side of it. How'd you get into the single barrel side in kinda talk a little bit more about the program too. I guess we'll give you a little bit about my background. When i was in college. I decided i didn't want to go to law school on to pursue get into bastard. Brewing is in at that time actually went to wilderness trail on a field trip in college and got to meet dr heist and see the lab firm solutions. And kinda put the together. If i could get in there on noah fermentation know-how yeast works a little bit better and do quality control. I could get a job. Landed anywhere..
Jack Dorsey is selling the first tweet as an NFT
"Since i've been gone we had jack sell his first tweet. We've had taco bell get into the nfc game gronkowski get into the nfc game. Jack's i tweet going up for sale via sent was particularly divisive. You some people asking why jack. Why especially those who feel that. Nfc's are just the second coming of icao's and then on the other hand you had people like justin son who were bidding it into the millions of dollars now. In terms of that specific. I tweet ever. Jack said that he's going to donate all the proceeds through give directly. But it's really brought up a lot of questions. There are certainly the questions of why anyone would want to own tweets but there are also questions of intellectual property and who has the ability to minton. Nf t melting d'humieres tweeted. Here's a question. People keep token izing my tweets. Nfc's how does someone else monetize in my twitter feed helped me in any way as a creator genuinely perplexed adding to this is the title acquisition by square so basically square announced that it was acquiring title. Which is the musicians. First streaming network started by jay z among others as part of the deal jay z. Was going to join the square board many speculated that in fact an f. ts were a part of it. like sullivan. Wrote a piece on coin desk arguing. That and i want to read a quick excerpt. Why does a mobile wallet want to own this property. In part the customer acquisition strategy for cash app has been through influencers in the hip hop community including by giving out bitcoin to followers. This is a massive leveraged growth. Hack square is buying a unique go to market strategy. Also getting a lot of artists has customers who are in essence running small businesses being a small business banking alternative square. Well positioned to one bank. In monetize the creators and to then use the voice of the creators to grow adoption of square itself putting the royalty at six on chain and turning those into a liquid market connected into decentralized finance is a pretty large paradigm shift. You could own the royalty stream you could collateral. Is it to take out a loan. You could stake it as an object that allows you some governance rights you could create a portfolio or basket of various creative objects and turn them into an index that generates dividends you could love her index and downside protection and so on so there continues to be a lot of interesting exploration. I've got a slew of pr announcements about famous people. Doing nfc's in my inbox right. Now and fascinating lead the boil. The ocean fudd crowd has now taken firm site at and t's saying that they are basically evil in that anyone who does crypto. Art should be bullied on twitter. This is not something that i would anticipate but certainly add some intrigue to this whole space
Why Buchanan County, Virginia’s election results are important
"Buchanan County gave President trump his biggest margin of victory in the two thousand sixteen presidential election nearly eighty percent voted for him compared to just over eighteen percent for Hillary Clinton. President trump has done little to expand his political base since then and to secure victory this time around, he'll need to maintain his base in working class comedies like the Canon. So how is support in Buchanan holding up this time around and what can you tell us about trump's base across the country? We turn now to our senior editor Bob Davis Hi Bob thanks for being here. Sure. Thanks for inviting me. So, tell us a little bit more about the canons economy which has relied heavily on coal mining has that changed during the pandemic what's going on there now? Will you know you voted Cannon County and you can read about the pandemic and people will tell you how it's affected them. But you don't honestly see it. It is a place where few people wear masks where people are back in their offices not in general not observing social distancing and it is a place where the pandemic has moved through the county just as it has in other places. So what? You see for the pandemic is, for instance, the high school which was went virtual in the spring they tried a mixture of in-person and virtual mostly in person for the full the issue there one reason an additional reason there to go in person compared to other places is you know it's it's a place that's full of mountains and valleys, and the the Internet reception's not very good in a lot of places so. That would argue to have kids come back and go to school in person. Well, when I was there, it happened that three kids tested positive and they wound up going off virtual. School. Which of course had the usual effect on parents who have to take care of the kids so I mean there's that and then the economy. The economy's slowing. As again as you would see around the country, the coal mines shut or slowed. During the spring, but they're back shopping is down retail sales are down and it's a place where the unemployment rate you know went up to eleven percent. It's now the most recent is around nine percent. So even a place that's used to having a weak economy. In What is clearly recession? President trump is still expected to win the county in this election, but a lot has changed for many of his supporters there're especially during the pandemic. Bob, can you tell us more about what you heard from them and how they're thinking about voting this time around sure I mean they are still overwhelmingly in favor of president trump overwhelmingly but. Then you have to define what is overwhelmingly mean in two thousand sixteen. He got eighty percent of the vote in the general election. So will he get eighty percent of the vote? Will he get seventy percent of the vote will as many people show up to vote for him? These are all questions that are uncertain at this point, the answers to which. Are, uncertain as I say the people there in general are still quite supportive but even his supporters wonder if other supporters are basically suffering from what you might call trump fatigue, the four years of controversy the pandemic which it's Cannon County as much as it hits, you know anywhere else you know all the controversies and so even his supporters wonder whether they'll get. As larger turn out, it doesn't mean necessarily vote for Joe Biden mean that they don't show up to vote another issue is that it's a place with the weak economy as I said and the number and people are leaving people the population there is being greatly reduced over the past twenty thirty years and even from two thousand, sixteen to two, thousand twenty, there are fewer people in the county. So there are fewer potential voters for the president. Did you talk to any voters who did vote for trump in two thousand sixteen and are now considering voting for? Biden. Yes. I spoke particularly to a couple. Francis and Rayburn. Minton who run a clinic in Grundy it's tucked away in a food city supermarket and they as are many people in that area they were Democrats. This is an area that until Brock Obama actually voted democratic in the presidential election like a Lotta places in West Virginia and in South West Virginia, and then they had voted for president trump largely. Because of his promises about the coal economy bring back know the local economy to stronger state and they now are voting against him because they are upset at the way they feel he is mismanaged the response to cove it. I mean they see it up front you know they do testing for covid and the they have arguments with patients, potential patients, potential customers who WANNA test but we're we're a mask and a attributed a lot of the resistance to wear masks to the president's often disdainful attitude toward mass square.
Amy Coney Barrett & The State of SCOTUS
"So the topic I want to go to now is on the question timing the fact that this nomination is coming rather late in the fourth year of a president's term has made it controversial in fact, timing of just. Nominees to nominations to the supreme. Court has been controversial now for four or five years for a variety of reasons. So that's the first question. I would like each of you to tell me your position on on the question. Should the Senate be voting on a nomination to the Supreme Court right now sire you yes or no on that? I. Mean Yes. John All right cy you are yes. On the same question Irwin should the Senate be voting on a Justice of the supreme? Court now yes or no no amy honeybear bear should not be confirmed at this time. All right. Thank you I. Want to go first use for your reasons. Why are you a? Yes on the on the question of the timing of the nomination right now well, on the question of timing I think the Senate has the authority to consent the president is nominated someone. I don't see any reason why the Senate Caq Senate is doing other things it's it's considering thrown a virus relief. Of course, it can legislate until the members leave. and. So nothing nothing prevents the president from nominating someone nothing prevents Senate from acting upon that nomination and I think there three positions John. I think one position is you must vote on the nomination I. think that was Erwin's position for years ago. A second position is you can vote on the nomination, but you shouldn't that might ear ones position today and I the the middle position, which is you can vote on the nomination and you should. Thank your ticket back to you. So what I hear size saying is the Senate has every legal and constitutional right to be doing this now. They, certainly have the legal and constitutional right to do it, but they shouldn't do it. This is stunning hypocrisy by the Republicans for years ago Senator Mitch McConnell said, the American people should have a voice in the selection and the next Supreme Court justice. Therefore, this vacancies should not be filled into we have a new president. Antonin Scalia died in February two, thousand sixteen. President Obama named Mira Garland for that seat in March of two thousand sixteen. There was eight months before the election was to be held in the Republicans wouldn't hold hearings or wouldn't hold about Ruth Bader Ginsburg died on September eighteenth of twenty twenty, and already the Republicans are looking to fill that seat. There is historical precedent. On October twelfth eighteen sixty four chief justice Roger Tawny died the president Abraham Lincoln didn't try to fill the vacancy in the month before the election or nineteen fifty-six Justice Sherman Minton resigned from the court but President Eisenhower didn't try to pick the successor instead an October fifteenth. He made a recess appointment of a Democrat William Brennan. So whoever won the election would pick the successor? Alright let. Let me jump in because I I WANNA give cya chance to respond to some of what you're saying. So so I think we heard from Irwin saying that. eight months. was enough of a lead time and they were talking about the case of Merrick Garland back in two thousand sixteen. But that one month one and a half months is too short and he sites precedent of other examples where presidents had more of that timeframe. So what's your response to that? I think are ones making a slightly different point I think if. They. Can See had risen eight months ago I think are only making the same exact point, which is what's good for the goose is good for the Gander. So it's not really a question of timing. There's plenty of time as Irwin and other people now there there's GonNa be a vote in the Senate. The point is about equity I. Think the point is about precedent in Irwin has some precedents would, of course, you can go back to previous administrations in sight other presidents. John Marshall was appointed days before John Adams left the Presidency Steven Briar was nominated and appointed to the circuit court after Jimmy Carter lost. So there, there are precedents obviously for acting after the election. Let alone before I understand there's some raw feelings about what happened four years ago and I understand that people have flipped Irwin. Himself is flipped a apparently senator McConnell may have slipped as well. I think. It's unfortunate. This game of delaying nominations has gone on for quite a long. I have a colleague who waited two years before she withdrew for circuit court position because it wouldn't allow vote. That's just sort of power politics on both
Bahrain follows UAE to normalise ties with Israel
"Friday president trump announced that Bahrain would recognize Israel and the two nations would normalize relations. This comes just weeks after a similar move from the United, Arab Emirates what to make of it. All I'm joined again by Zanny Minton beddoes and we slaughter and Ian Bremmer in put this in context for us what does this mean? Why did it happen? What does it mean? Well two big things that people need to come to terms with the first. Is that Israel Palestine is considered close to the most important conflict in the region. It is for the Palestinians when you talk to the Maradas with the Saudis, the Bahrainis, the Kuwaitis you'll talk to you about their concerns about Iran they'll talk to you about diversification away from fossil fuels and the difficulties that they'll talk to you about domestic radicalism, all of these sorts of things. And so as a consequence, you no longer have a veto on if you don't get peace with Israel Palestine, you can't move on geopolitics. The second point is the united. States had long attempted to be seen as some kind of honest broker between Israel and Palestine when we're anything but Israel's our best ally in the region, the Palestinians particularly agree with we have problems with and so you know it's interesting trump's first trip as president outside the United States was to Saudi Arabia and then to Israel and those are the two places where he has the best personal relations and that's where they really drove. So yeah, you had the effort to. Talk about peace with Israel and Palestine where the Palestinians weren't even engage a big conference in. Bahrain. Now, you've got big announcements in relation. I think especially from you and I talking to jared through this that was kind of the game all along I I'm not in any way surprised by this. And we. A friend of mine WHO's from the Middle East very knowledgeable about the says what's really going on here this is this is the post American Middle East that is countries like. Israel UA Bahrain Saudi Arabia saying we're GONNA make our own alliances to defend ourselves against the the real threat that we feel as he was saying, which is Iran and we know the Americans aren't going going to help us. So we need we need to band together. Is that part of the dynamic. Afraid, I think that is right that again Obama wanted out of the Middle East. If you if you think about the direct line from his refusal to engage in Syria. And that's actually an area where he his policies and trump's have been closer than than other areas. But I also think you have to think about this in the context of us. Domestic Politics Donald Trump. Has Two modes he can be the fearmongering president or he can be the dealmaking president who delivers and if we're thinking about October surprises up for this election, what he would dearly love is to actually have a treaty or agreement between Israel and Saudi Arabia, which really would redraw the map of the Middle East and the conventional wisdom is the Saudis aren't ready but obviously, the UAE in Bahrain are stalking horses and and Bahrain would not have been able to do this without Saudi approval. So it's probably a low chance, but there is a real chance at least of a framework agreement in which Saudi Arabian Israel would would normalize relations in return for something more something bigger on the Palestinian sought.

So so you full whole circle of stuff I'm a very lucky and blessed guy, there's just no question about it. So towards the end of the podcast here. So what are the next steps I know you started long reasonably and then putting the gears, the big data beard but what other bucket list items that you have? Yeah. So so next for us is really looking at how do we expand the big data beards ability to help and influence for good. So we're actually taking a couple of segments this season and we're gonNA focus on some. Nonprofit organizations to give them some exposure. Because we are were huge fans. We obviously not we're blessed in many ways where we're lucky to have You know I live in American and it's a great country. Now you lift your but there's lots of good things going on our lives clearly identified a pretty happy guy but it's it's really about how do we help do more? For those around us so I I really WanNa start figuring out ways to leverage our influence for nonprofit organizations those organizations trying to do good in the world and really expose them to more audiences so that you know frankly if you're a benevolent and you like to give and you have a philanthropy philanthropy counter background than you know, hopefully will identify some organizations that could use your help So that's really kind of the big next step. The the kind of the longer term is you know for the company for big beard, we're really trying to. Look at our sponsorship. Model to see if you know how we could really Create more of a sustainable model technically bring on a full time employee in probably it wouldn't be one of the contributors today were really thinking if we could start to build enough to get a program management kind of brand and social creative person a fulltime to take the content that we're creating and actually helped promote it more to increase awareness of our brand increase consumption of our content that really starts to to spiral into that ability to. Increase our sponsorship fees to to get more opportunities for advertising, and so that's really the long term is, how do we? You know like most entrepreneurs trying to figure out that next Revenue Cycle? How do you improve your revenue stream? That's a big one for us and trying to expand into potentially a head headcount Sunday and personally I think it's It's all about the next adventure. So we're you know in the short term we're going we're going to the beautiful city of New Orleans just really not that crazy for the weekend, but one thing that we're. Trying to do is We're riding the train. So I know in the you like everywhere else in the world trains are totally like common, not really common used in the US extra chicken or kids on the Amtrak from Birmingham to New Orleans on Friday But then we're also planning a we've got a trip to our first trip to Africa this fall. So my mother-in-law is actually been kind enough to invite us on a safari of the whole family. So there's going to be a nine of US going over to Tanzania in November to experienced the great migration and that is It's like a bucket list goal for me. It's going to be incredible I think my son is obsessed with animals and I might say obsessed like it's crazy I fear his head not explode. So part of my job is going to be cleaning up the mess of my sons exploiting on Safari. Jazz your Mr Experience. So the family effort experience as a fantastic.

"Have collided with I o t to help racecar drivers go faster around very tracks right and so there's this really interesting startup that we found. That's that's got this driver feedback device that's actually using pretty advanced accelerometer technology from an IT perspective integrated with a with a real time feedback system and does a ton of data collection that in real time is helping drivers understand how much. Grip, they have remaining on the tires in a corner and giving them real time feedback to say, Hey, you could go a little faster or you could break a little later into the corner. So we're going to be exploring. You know what is that technology was built something like that. But then how's it impacting the racing culture or the high performance driving you know guys on the weekends and Gals on the Weekends like myself who go out and try to drive our cars around a track fast and really explore what that means and try to get some perspectives not only from you. The people that founded the company but actually go talk to some professional racing drivers and weekend warriors you're using it to get their perspective on it just again to explore more than just one person's opinion for episode that really to have A. Lens Conversation on a specific topic. So the idea state that's very good. So you alluded to corey the personal side a little bit You said you race on the weekend. So let me switch. So we know a little bit more about the quarry beyond the big beard but. With the beard. So, what what does that? Corey do weekends and just to give us a little flavor of your personality. Absolutely. So obviously big data beards a big part of what I do on the side but I we life is I've got two beautiful children seventy, five, a wife, and they are crazy travel adventurer. So in my role I, get to travel around the world and I'm crazy enough that will one I. Love my family and I don't really like being away from them for extended periods of time. But as you probably know traveling around the world going for four days during the WORKWEEK Kinda. Stinks because you end up spending half the time jet lagged and awful and feeling terrible. So over the last three years my wife and I started, go with Daddy dot com, which is her little travel blog where whenever I. On international trips, I try to make them a multi week long trips. Okay. and try to make the you know obviously, if the company's going to spend money to fly me to Australia, maybe I should use that time to go not just for a week but maybe to and I could visit multiple cities maybe tack in a trip to Tokyo because it's on that side of the world and so what? started. Doing is putting together these longer multi leg trips for a month to six weeks at a time actually take my family along with me. So I use my miles and and points to pay for their flights, and then they you know I pay for hotels on the weekends but they get to enjoy while I'm working in a city they get to go explore it as a mom and two young kids so. My kids that are like seventy and five. They've been to nineteen countries. They spent more than thirty I. think it's like thirty six weeks of their lives outside the US and you know we live in Alabama and people think of Alabama's being a you know small backwater kinda southern place but will really trying to do is we live in a beautiful. We have our own personal beliefs and things that we hold very true. But we want our children to have perspective on the world and the ways that we do things in that they see things done in their home and their city. It's not the only right way like the right way for other people to live as highly dependent on their belief system on the geography on the food supply on the water supply on on economics and socioeconomic things that. Absolutely make people different and I think exposing them as young children to those differences. I hope we'll make them more empathetic more better general citizens of Nicer people to deal with as they turn into adults and I think that's our our thing is parents were trying to turn our kids into two great adult someday and I it's what we're really trying to do. So we love to travel I do races off as I can't say race it's really to be honest it's high performance driving I have a I have a car it's Went from being a daily driver to it is full on like set up for the race track. It's got a roll cage. There's no, there's no it's racing seats. There's no back seat. There's. All the metal is exposed in this thing, it's loud and it's awful. It's still slightly street legal, but that's only because I live in Alabama. If I lived in California, it'd be out of here. So. There is a there's a beautiful racetrack that is about twenty minutes from my house called Barber motorsports Park, and Mr, Barbour has the the largest dairy farmer in the southeast dairy millionaire huge race inefficient auto actually has a vintage motorcycle museum that's the largest collection of vintage motorcycles on the planet right here in Birmingham Alabama, but it is a beautiful two plus mile course with lots of enj- election great turns. It's actually where the Porsche driving school has one of their locations. So I get to go out there about once every other month and just absolutely rip it on the racetrack.

So why don't we take it from the beginning? what is big data and how you got involved with it. Absolutely. So big data beard is a creative media company that's really focused on talking about the trends. Technologies and the talented people that are really making big data. A big deal and big data certainly evolved over the last few years has become a an envelope term that people didn't really understand completely and and it was exciting to now it's almost a gets polarizing, right but it really what we try to focus on is is finding those nuggets of wisdom with smart people and companies that are leveraging ai big data machine learning deep learning. Iot. This modern emerging technology landscape to really do something transformative so whether that's you know talking with the founders in the CTO's at cool interesting starter companies to. talk him with industry executives who are actually using these technologies to impact the quality of human life for their business, and so really it's a, it's a great way for myself and our other contributors and members of the PODCAST team to really get to talk to the best in the brightest in the industry and we we really that's how we started. We really just wanted an excuse to talk to the best and the brightest so that we would constantly stay as educated as possible on these emerging trends so that we can continue to be great technologists in a variety of ways. Actually, you're doing a very interesting thing one is fully employed, but started big data bid.

Flight Lines: The Heroic Story of Two Migratory Shorebirds
"Have someone sitting opposite me just twitching to tell his story. The book is flat. Lines and the author is Andrew Dobson Andrew. Welcome to three C- I thank you. David I'm curious about the would twitching. I haven't really made a close study of twitching despite writing. This book. Twitching is a word that is used by dedicated. Some say obsessive Burgers and sometimes they detractors to Indicate their preoccupation with finding the next bird. An observing bird minded research. Because it's not actually mentioned in the book the twitching behavior of Howard Medhurst who was one of the leading birdwatchers in the nineteen fifties and sixties. But this book in other words is about birds or in particular one species of birds the grey plover a daoist wallflower of the shorter dance. It spreads thinly around the world's margins and is often overlooked. What's the fascination with the Gripe Lot? Well let's start by working our way towards the bird from what we are. Probably the closest bird that we know to this is the masked left wing. It's often colder plaza. But it's sexually left wing but that's what we know as a plot now go through that gate and think about the kinds of things that the left wing does transfer them to the tidal flats of the world the far-flung tidal flats of the world. And there's this small bird not much begun a blackbird gray when it's out of the breeding grounds highly colored up when it gets to the breeding grounds and it is commonly found with others in the group of Long Distance Flying Margaret lowrie shore. Birds the ultramarathons birds. Now when you say ultra-marathon sort of distance are we talking so the two birds that I particularly follow which were satellite tag in South Australia and flew north on the first flight. Each of them flew over the entirety of Australia of Indonesia the Philippines to land one of them in Taiwan and the other in southern China so each of them took a nonstop flight of more than seven thousand kilometers. Just to give us a sort of indication in layman's terms. When you're holding this bird. How much are you holding? Well you're holding about a cup of sugar not a big white. You're holding something that really can be quite placid in the hand. Despite its wildness. And you're holding. I guess the promise of many generations of optic life birdlife and they transcend boundaries in many ways in the journey. We've got apple tree boundaries as people on borders and they bicycling cross all of those hemispheres international borders and such like. It's it's quite a phenomenal feet. If you want to get carried beyond the trivialities of human life like borders then migratory long distance migratory birds are a really good way to start because there will pass through the margins of many countries but is not off one eye and they have total disregard for human borders. Now one of the things that the book sort of touches on as you look this journey other various forms of tagging that have occurred or the ability to follow from banding to rocket nets and now two satellites. The satellites would give you an inordinate amount of opportunity to try and be particular about what you say quite revelatory. They are Give you almost near real time information. About where on the planet this bird is and what it's doing even because if you have a lucrative say on a breeding ground you'll see it move from point to point to point as it fades and then goes back to the central point which is the nest So yes it can be unrivaled information and It really is hugely illuminating. As opposed to the banding which was more happenstance abandoning as the book suggests started in the lighting hundreds. But that would rely on. Someone actually catching the Buddha game. We'll exactly Either catching the again or killing it or finding a dead. The doyen of Australian Migratory Schubert's studies like Clive Minton when he lived in England. Has I band on? A migratory shortbread was on a lovely good coach spotted. Red Shank and he was really pleased to have it in hand really priest to put the band on it and some weeks later he got the band back because it had been shot by the mayor of putting your in France who returned the band with the address on to Clive. Now a couple of things fascinated me about. The birds are reading this book. I'm the song lines. There's a connection here with an indigenous song. Lawn is moving up. Moving from group to group and changing as guides and there's an equivocal mention of what the birds was well yes we'll I'm careful to not impose my description on indigenous cultures. But I hope that I have drawn out of the records of indigenous couches The great variety of names. This bird has as it travels not just from Australia. But through China up to Siberia and across to North America where? It's pretty circum Paula. It has a series of lovely nines. And the they are run there are really illuminating series. Too you know they describe often. I described the bird by its phonetic. Call sometimes they describe it by its coloring in Alaska where I went It was cold emphatic. And that means the scorched bird. But so there's a similarity through the sort of landscape in many ways. Yes depending on which part of the world now for such a fragile creature. They are quite a number of threats in this day and age the threats for the gripe the mind well. We've got a bird here. That has persisted down through evolutionary generations for about one hundred and thirty million years so it's not easily removed from the face of the earth. But while it's doing well other others. In the group of long distance migratory shore birds are not doing so well And as a whole the contracting in numbers. I'm this four that have been listed on Australia's critically endangered list in recent years. Because of the problems they face pardon the analogy but the canary in the coalmine. Well certainly you know I think migratory shore birds. We Stu people generally in Australia particularly and when we look at the coasts we should think about the health of Alco spy.

Is CBD Safe? The FDA Can't Say
"NPR. Health correspondent. Allison Aubrey. Hey Alison Hey Mattie so today we're talking about a topic that a lot of people have questions about. CBD Yes can dial or CD as you say. It is compound found in the cannabis Hannah-beth plant so you find it in marijuana and hemp and it has exploded in popularity. It is touted as an elixir that can do everything from relieving Zaidi to to help. Ease your aches and pains. You've heard about it right now. Oh yeah so. There are a lot of companies from big operations to mom and pop shops selling it. I can tell you having been in truck stops in rural Pennsylvania and on the freeway and Silicon Valley. No matter where you are in the country right now you are likely seeing ads for CBD. But here's the thing last week. The Food and Drug Administration came out with some fairly strong warnings. Yes basically they came out and they issued warning letters to fifteen companies selling CD products. And they're basically saying you are violating FDA policy they say you are not allowed to market CBD products as a treatment for any condition or disease. You cannot sell it is a dietary supplement and you may not put it in any foods that are fed to people or animals now just because the FDA has says this is not allowed does not mean that you'll stop seeing products marketed. This way and we'll get to that in a little bit the same day that they weren't all those companies the FDA also updated their consumer guidance for CD there what you need to know about CBD page citing some pretty serious safety concerns. It's a lot of warnings. So today on the show we're going to break down with the FDA DA says about CBD and how some of those warnings might be more valid than others so alison give me the CBD one o one sir can abba dial or CD for short is a component of cannabis. That means it. It is extracted from the plant. Pulled out the plant. It does not contain the psychoactive component. THC that we all know about that makes you high but it still Ella works on your brain in ways that scientists don't completely understand yet. I have reported on studies that are currently evaluating. CBD's potential role in curbing anxiety. There are federal grants. I should say to evaluate whether CBD could be used as an alternative to opioids. But so far there's only one. FDA APPROVED CBD drug on the market. It's approved to treat very specific childhood epilepsy disorders. So we have this weird situation on one. Hand everybody's using CD. There's all this research going on and then the FDA is saying we can't conclude that CD is safe. Yes you're right. It seems paradoxical ago. So let's step back a moment to give some context make sense of this basically CB has been and what I would call regulatory limbo. I mean big time for a longtime. The production of hemp was restricted. It was considered a controlled. Substance Hemp and marijuana are varieties of the same plants cannabis then lashed year under pressure. From from Congress and hemp farmers these restrictions were lifted as part of the two thousand eighteen farm bill and Ben Distri said Alleluia. This is great but the FDA quickly weekly stepped in and said hey wait a second here we have regulatory authority over CBD. And there's a lot we still don't know. Remember this compound kind of came out of nowhere. I mean right have ah you heard of CBD three years ago not really. I mean this year. I wouldn't be surprised if it's one of the more popular items and Christmas stockings around the country. So is it fair to say the FDA might have been a little bit caught off guard by this. Yes this boom of. That's right and it's well within their purview. To regulate it when it's used in foods or as drug but they say they just don't have a lot of data to go on yet right now. The agency is in the midst of writing some specific rules to regulate but before they do. They WANNA know that it's safe. We should also point out that even though the FDA just said we can't say CD's safe the World Health Organization another giant public health three-nation put out a report last year saying CBD is generally well tolerated and has a good safety profile. That's right from what they've seen so far the. Who is saying there can be some adverse effects from drug interactions. But there's no evidence of any public health related problem associated with that. That is what they say. They point to the fact that several countries have modified their regulations to allow the use of CBD as a medicinal product. But again the FDA playing it safe saying it needs more data now one area where they say they need more is on the potential for liver damage from using CD. And you've been looking into that right. Yeah so that is actually one of the things. The FDA warns people about in what you need to know page. I looked into it a bit and some of the state came from when the FDA DA was reviewing the epilepsy medication that we've talked about Basically they found that taking. CBD has the potential for damaging the liver and that was very dose dependent meeting most of the troubling results happened at higher doses And that makes sense right. There's a good bit of data out there. Supporting this and a lot of the serious damage was seen when people were taking other other drugs that also impacted the liver and that brings us to another warning which is potential drug interactions does CBD increase or decrease crease the effects of other medications. You might be taking. Does it. Increase side effects basically the FDA saying they are concerned about the potential safety of taking other medications at the same time. You're taking CD. When you're not being monitored by a healthcare professional and the most interesting warning they put out to me at least was there mention of this potential for male reproductive toxics? Okay Yeah So. The FDA warns that CD led to decreased testicular size mess with the growth of sperm and Development Minton and decreased circulating testosterone. But the thing is alison. All of this data came from animal studies including delightful study on Sea Urchin Sea Urchin Yup. Yep Okay and in one of those studies. They weren't even testing on actual animals just cells isolated from animals okay and even the FDA acknowledges that stuff that happens in animals almost does not necessarily happen in humans right and I asked the FDA for more information about this and they sent me about twelve studies. And I looked at a good bit of them and some of them used I really high doses of how high like ten times the maximum recommended dose for the FDA approved drug that. We've already been talking low which is already a hider the right and to be fair doses researchers using animals are sometimes more than they use in humans but I saw some real variability in the studies. Some found differences and in sperm. And how they're moving around how much there is. But another didn't and it seems to depend maybe on the type of animals that were studied so a lot of inconsistencies. Here a little bit. Yeah and in one of the studies they did show that. CBD Treatment Lead to a decrease in testosterone but it was still within the normal physiological range. So you think these studies might be a little week more like the conclusions at the. FDA is drawing from this group of Studies. There weren't that many of them and I find it odd that the FDA put out this kind of scary fertility warning warning based solely on animals. So those are the specific warnings. The FDA has mentioned here but they also say that they have some concerns about a special populations like the elderly children pregnant women and also a very special population are pets dogs cats. You see all kind of marketing around doggy. CBD for your anxious pup but the FDA says that they can't say whether this is safer effective they also I want to look into the cumulative effects. Meaning what happens if you're using multiple CD products at one time. This was my favorite government warning. Okay let's see Jason Literally said what happens if you eat food with few skin cream and take other CD products on the same day. I am sure there are people out there doing I meant. I know where where they're going with it but it read to me like what could happen if you put it in your eyes and your ears in your mouth and you rub it on your but in the same day what could happen. Alison we we know. But okay real talk. Allison you have been reporting on the FDA and FDA related things for years. What are your feelings about all this you no I think the FDA is in a tough spot here? I mean these are fair warnings. If you consider what they know and don't know the agencies just trying to communicate that the CBD products haven't all been evaluated for safety or efficacy meaning whether they work or not and you know the CD you buy online or over the counter sir depending on who made it might not have the amount of CBD in it it says on the bottle it might not actually contain CBD. I mean given given the current state of regulation. You just can't be sure or you know there could be other stuff in there that you don't want right well. This is the perennial problem with supplements. Right I mean the FDA has this dividing line between how it regulates prescription drugs and how it regulates supplements when something's prescription drug. There's a rigorous amount of testing that it goes into it right when something is regulated as a supplement. It's kind of a wait and watch situation if something goes wrong. The FDA certainly has the power to take it off the market market. But you often don't know what's in the products or if there might be contaminants in there so there was always a buyer. Beware message when you're talking about things that are are you buying off the shelf like dietary supplements and so what do you think about from the safety perspective. You know I really do think it's interesting. With the world. Health Organization Organization has said. I mean they're basically saying from what we've seen so far. The safety profile looks to us. Pretty good I think one possible resolution solution to all of this as the FDA ways exactly how to regulate CD. I mean. Let's face it. CBS Not going away. But I think there could be some tiered system. That's certainly something you hear. The industry talking about there could be high dose products which would be restricted and require a prescription then. Low dose products like supplements Lancer Foods. which would be more widely available makes sense so the PR person that I talked to you said the FDA will have more to say about CBD in the coming weeks so we will be looking forward to another CD UPDATE
Democrats raise stakes with impeachment vote
"After weeks of factfinding behind closed doors the house is gearing up to vote on the best way to present it's impeachment inquiry to the public in what will likely be act to the investigation into the president's alleged quid pro With Ukraine the gathering political storm comes amid a flurry of damning testimonies from top officials most recent leap new Tannin Colonel Alexander Finland the Ukraine expert on the National Security Council who listened in on the phone call between President trump and you can Ukrainian presidents and landscape and said the White House those omitted details of the calls in its transcript today to more diplomats take the stand Christopher Anderson and Catherine craft both were for trump's former envoy to Ukraine Kurt Volker who helped the president's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani contact Ukrainian officials close to President's landscape now former Defense Secretary William Cohen is being closely watching these hearings member of the Judiciary Committee during the Watergate hearings he was one of the handful of Republicans who actually voted for President Nixon's impeachment and now he's calling for politicians on both sides of the aisle to put country before party they the current evidence and he's joining me now from Washington Secretary Cone Welcome to the program good to be with you so I ask you first and I do you think the house and the Senate are in fact going to or have they showed any evidence that they're putting country before politics I think some of them are I believe the the Democrats who are now leading in the house are trying to get at all of the facts is best they can I think they've gone about it the right way and that is to have private hearings or secret hearings in order make sure nothing is classified comes out an open testimony that's what happened during the Watergate era where the Watergate Committee had private hearings before they went public and as a result of those public hearings it certainly educated the American people in terms of what was at stake and then it came over to the House of Representatives we conducted almost all of our hearings in private and only went public when we started to debate the articles of impeachment so this kind of a hybrid here because there was no Senate Watergate Committee investigating a Watergate type committee investigating the president trump and his actions and so it's a hybrid now where the House has been required to go and dig out some of the facts before they go public and then they'll go public I assume within the next two weeks so it's very interesting who are really hammering this this fact that they have been doing their job behind closed doors because they needed to get all the relevant facts before they could go public I mean I assume you're saying that to answer the chorus of criticism from the Republicans and from members of president trump's as that this is somehow as he says it a kangaroo process with everything happening in a non-transparent way well much else what is being said its faults number one Republicans have been in the hearings behind closed doors and the spectacle that we saw last week with I'm forty or fifty Republicans storming the intelligence committee room was just that it was a spectacle because many of those who were storming the who was actually had seats on the inside and could have sat there if they hadn't at any time during the course of all of these hearings so I think it was more for a show that had little to do with the facts and the facts were being gathered by Republicans behind closed doors as well as the Democratic majority and so now will go public and I think it's really important it's not enough to have Robert Muller just read from his testimony what he had gathered as his his finding Wchs it's really important that those who have key information go before the American people be subjected to a critical examination in cross examination so the American public can understand what's at stake and what's at stake is the rule of law and whether or not the president has breached that rule whether or not he has engaged in conduct which in my opinion on its face is impeachable namely to call upon a foreign government a to dig up critical information or dirt on a potential of campaign competitor in the following in next year's race yeah I think that is something which on the face of it would be an impeachable offense I'm let me ask you you mentioned the rule of law that's obviously the fundamental principle of one of the main principles the United States and the democracy that are you concerned that the rule of law itself is under threat and are you concerned that the from the consistent attack on institutions in the United States is having an impact on the democratic process I am during the time of Harry Truman Indianapolis and others it was called you know watching the president that the beginning I think we're present at the end of that process they were present at the beginning of setting up these institutions in the United States and elsewhere which helped to maintain for the most part peace and stability for the past seven years I believe the president trump is in the process of knocking down those pillars and so he feels that he doesn't need any of these other institutional guards such to make that he feels that he alone own can take action without regard to any of the other institutions which are there to make sure that the rule of law stays intact and so that only I can do that assume that has the sound of a dictator or dictatorship where only I can solve this problem I don't need you for consultation I know more than the generals I know more than the ambassadors and I alone can take this action without regard to you congress I don't need you know have to come you and therefore it becomes one man rule now if the president can do that in his first term what we would we expect if he has second term and which has no need to go before the electorate again there's no need to go to Congress to say I'm sorry I broke this rule they'll be no rules that will go on broken in my opinion because he feels that he is above the law that he is the face of the law that he is the face of the Justice Department et Cetera. So I worry about the future as much as I worry about the present in terms of what is happening I want the president to abide by the rule of law and I want Republicans to say Mr President when you step over this line you have to be held accountable you cannot go to a foreign government and ask for assistance against dirt on your future opponent that crosses the line which should not be crossed now whether the majority in the Senate supermajority in the Senate two thirds of the Senate will vote for removal I think at this point is rather doubtful but in any event even if doubtful it is important for the American people to listen to the facts to say you may think it's okay for this president but do you want to set the standard and lower the standards for every other president in the future because what is good for president trump will be good for them and I've always believed I want to look up to the president I want to see the president as a shining example of what the rule of law supposed to look like in America and why we treasure that rule of law because if you don't have the rule of law you have the law of rules and that's something the president seems really more akin to he likes President Putin he likes Kim Jong Hoon he likes presentation paying he likes spreading the Erawan he doesn't much like our allies in terms of paying the same kind of tribute to them that he does to those who the kind of one man rule I mean you've just laid out a pretty alarming scenario I mean if I had to sum it up you pretty much saying that potential elite the United States is is on route to anti democracy I mean almost tyranny you've just said and from from somebody like yourself who's a pretty moderate Republican who served a Democratic president you're not a flame thrower it's pretty alarming I wonder whether former colleagues or current members of Congress whether the House or the Senate listening and you of course signed a letter with with forty four other four most Republicans and others about this issue and yet the Boston Globe has said where are you all where are you all where all the Republican senators or Congress people who who actually did what they had to do according to the rule of law during the Watergate era Where are you all apart from US speaking out like this well many of the Republican Senators with whom I served L. exactly as I do they are worried about where the country is heading I would ask everyone to go back and read Orwell's nineteen eighty-four and look what he was writing about a fictional sense and saying is that where we're headed where you have a Ministry of truth in which you can tell the biggest is and you repeat them over and over again until they're accepted as the truth so you have a situation where the words like a war really means peace or ignorance really means wisdom or slavery is equal to freedom and two plus two week was five when you that's pretty fictional but it's not too for removed when you can have the president of the United States I yeah I wrote this letter and it's a perfect letter and I would say perfectly corrupt in the sense that you're trying to dig up dirt through a country that has beholden to us for its security in order to get that security delivered to them but only if you give this information on Joe Biden and his family and so you keep repeating it's perfect it's perfect perfect and people soon we'll say yeah it is perfect so that's why it's important to have these public hearing so you can have a ambassador Bill Taylor about Yvonne show you can have a lieutenant colonel come forward and say here is what I heard this is why alarmed me and this is why every American and should be alarmed about this because this is not what we do this is not how we act we don't ask we don't ask Russia Russia if you're listening come on in so you can we're open for business that's not something that we can accept which should not accept into the extensive the American people feel it's okay then I think we're headed down they very dangerous past one that every American should be concerned about so let me ask you about the American people because clearly the idea of an impeachment is a very I soon traumatic one for the nation they've been through it once or twice before it's rabbit it's happened and it is traumatic and people I will also say as president trump's allies of said that it's simply an attempt to rob an elected leader of his position do you are you concerned given what we're seeing in polls right now that this could be even more divisive even more traumatic than than than the all of law being upheld well we had the same arguments he met made back during Watergate there were people in the street we had bomb threats at our hearings I had to get special protection for my family as well and the argument was this will tear the country apart and my argument at that point was no it won't tear the country apart there'll be a vice president who will take office of removing the head for head of state for actions that are antithetical to what we believe in will not result and tearing the country apart we'll we'll tear the country apart is if we watched the slow the unraveling of the rule of law in the name of the power of the president and when you confuse the office of the president with the Individual President and His undoing becomes our undoing I tried to make that very clear I believe it's still obtains The president is there a temporary occupant we have our allegiance to who is the office of the President and to the The constitution into the country and so I know the president trump was trying to get members of like Mr Komi the actress FBI? I want you to pledge loyalty to me yes there was no MR president. I don't pledge my loyalty to you I pledge my loyalty to the Constitution. that's something that has been going on now insisting upon loyalty to the person and it has to be loyalty to the office of the president why do you think then sorry to interrupt you but why think then so many Republicans are in fact not doing what you're saying in other words they are pledging their loyalty to him rather than do the pro the the

His grandfather father and siblings were all musicians. His father was a stride pianist. Stride was a jazz piano style that developed developed as the popularity of ragtime was dying down stride pianist play the melody with the right hand while the left hand alternates between a single. I note and a quarter played an active or more higher. The left hand had to go greater distances on the keyboard often very quickly and improvisation.

"Minutes. Give us another nugget. Well, you know, you're you you hit something there to that. I think is important is in that. And I talk a lot about this in the book, and it seems very simple. But it's it's it's it doesn't happen in. That is setting the expectations of what your what are your customer service expectations within your environment. You know, do the employees know that when a customer walks by you should be saying something to them, and I think that's important and communicating those service basics, and I think a lot of times what happens is because we're we're because we're so just. Desperate for employees that we're just throwing people out there. And we're not telling them. Hey, this is this is what you need to do. This is how you do it. And it goes back to what I said earlier a lot of people. It is their first job. And yes, we want we want to hire the right people. And we want to hope that they know some of these things are, you know, come naturally, but unfortunately, sometimes they don't and so you have to you have to teach and train those things with with folks that are new and especially in their first job. Right. So it what I'm hearing is there's there's really two levels of this service. And that is there's a cultural piece. So once you have the vision of what the services, you need to communicate that vision, and you're in the hotel business everybody. Here's heard me talk about the Ritz Carlton mantra or credo where ladies and gentlemen, serving, ladies and gentlemen, but you've got to teach them how to do that. You can't just say this is who we are. Now, go out and be that way. No, there's the operational side of hospitality operational side of the expectation. I guess is what I want to say it. It's like, you know, you've got to teach them what you expect. Nobody's gonna walk by without you, acknowledging them that is an expectation that's called engagement, and it's a touch point. And it's important. It's a moment of truth where the customer or the guest has an opportunity to form an impression of their experience. And if you let them walk by an act like you don't care that's a negative impression. Alright. So as we start to wind up here, I'm gonna let you give us if you can give us one more real quick nugget before I do my wrap up question. What else in this book would kind of got by this book because I got to learn more about this. I know you talk about I thought it was interesting. You talk about empathy leading into empowerment, and how sometimes all somebody wants to do is be heard. But it talked to me a little bit about that concept and just briefly we don't need to go into. A whole lot. But just give us an idea of what that means. Yeah. I think a lot of times brands are getting so into just scripting their employees. And and you know, everyone has their different models of how they should respond to a when a customer complains, you know, the Awa aware and Marriott. His learn Elliara in which I do reference, and I actually love Alan. But I think you have to really get behind. What what you're doing in those moments in a big one for for me as empathy peace and just putting yourself as simple as it is putting yourself in the customer's shoes, and I've found over the years that that out of all the things that you do when you respond to customer who's upset that always is the most important in terms of how what direction at that that that complaint may go, and if you can just put yourself in his shoes into say, adding knowledge, hey what you experiences. Right. Okay. I mean, it we're we're so quick to just apologize to death. And just try to throw something at person when a lot of times. It's just as simple acknowledging. Hey, that's that's not normal. That's not how we do business. And I'm sorry happened to you. And if I were in your situation, I'd be really upset. That's words right there. If I were in your situation, or I can understand why you would be upset. You are basically you're putting yourself in their shoes. But you're also making them know that it's one thing to think it it's another to express it. Yeah. And really one other thing I would have loved to mention on that is is not being afraid to give your frontline employees the keys to take care of those issues. I mean, I talk about in the book you need to eliminate the phrase. Let me check with the manager that phrase makes me cringe. I mean, it's just it's just so it's just so old school. I think in my mind anymore that we still have to do that let the folks that you hired trust them to take care of the customer. Let them do what they need to do make the customer happy in that moment. It might I add that you when you bring them on board you train them. First of all you hopefully make good higher that you know, is smart enough to do that. But you train them on right examples where is the line in the sand. They can't cross. All right. So we're just about out of time. I always wrap up with the final question. One thing that you absolutely want to make sure our listeners know or hear about and if you wanna just emphasize something you've already talked about that's fine too. What's that one thing? I think excuse me going back to just the title. The book is simple as it is one thing that anyone listening can do the minute. They stop hearing this podcast is think someone for coming in and make them feel appreciated and make them understand that what they're doing matters. You'll be surprised if you're not doing that how people's eyes alight up if you if you show that genuine appreciation. I love that. Thanks for coming in today.

We call him Ryan has written a book called thanks for coming in today. It's about creating a culture where employees thrive and customer service is alive, and he has a background in the hospitality industry. And I thought wow. What should we start with today?

Also, we're going to start off with ask shop, and I thought I would go ahead. Hundred and eighty degrees. The exact opposite of what we're going to be talking about with Ryan, we're gonna be talking about people and culture with Ryan. So I thought let's go digital. So in this short ask shop question. And by the way, if you wanna ask a question or tell a story, please go onto Twitter. My Twitter handle is at hike in and just use the hashtag ask shop. And I thought I would go one hundred eighty degree opposite. And and talk about digital I guess as we rounded into the new year a few weeks back. It seems like shows a long time ago, I've been asking or people have been asking me for trends, what's going on in the world of customer service experience. What are my predictions, and that type of thing, and I've been focused pretty much on well a little bit on artificial intelligence and AI, but mostly it's been on what I see happening in general. But I wanna take a moment and talk about what's happening. What I see trending in the next year. Or so and the world of digital. So there's a ton happening in the digital world today. Key customer service trends, we see more and more toward service where customers are taking control and they're going online looking for answers and looking for support. So the first trend that I'm spotting is self service. Make sure you have it if they Abbott complaint, they're probably gonna reach out to you. But a big percentage of them won't do it in direct traditional way of using the phone. They're going to reach out onto the website looking for answers. So they don't have to wait on hold. So they don't have to take the time giving all this information, you know, social security number last, four digits credit card number mother's maiden name of the firstborn child that third born child doesn't matter. But what's happening is going online because they would rather do it their way they may actually tweet to you. They may leave a review out there and expect that you will respond to that. They may go to Facebook and message you or then the many other ways to. Message as well. But there's basically multiple channels that our customers can connect with us. Now, it's easier than ever for them to find an alternative to the traditional pick up the phone and give us a call. But the big trend that I see is that if we decide to go digital is a company, and and make these avenues available for customers to connect with this. Then we need to decide exactly what's going to work best. We might want to consider a chat bot or some type of AI artificial intelligence to support or customer there needs to however to be a balance between the digital in the human side, you really want to be successful. Look at all the new technologies, but don't get all caught up, and how cool something is because by creating technology to replace the human human interaction, you might actually be letting customer down because when they need you. They're gonna wanna call you, and you need to make it easier than ever as in the word convenient. And if you've been listening to this show. Show. You know that I talk a lot about convenience. My last book was the convenience revolution came out just last year and lactobacillus, and if you're going to do anything digital that means you're trying to make it easier for the customer, but if they ever problem than it has to be just as easy for them to pick up the phone and talk to the customer. So the human fallback is really really important. So with that in mind, that's what I see trending today. We are going to jump over to interview with Ryan Minton and actually Charles Ryan Minton the book is called thanks for coming in today. We're going to talk about that in just a moment.

People are always trying to get stuff in them. That's what Kayla's is he's right. She is that's a really good. 'cause I feel very proud of my open mind. But maybe it's nothing to be proud of. Maybe I should be more humble about my open mind. Yeah. Have some humility so calendar, basically like we wanna live here. And they're having a very nice lake touching moment of closeness and Kayla's I clocks that she's wearing the heart necklace. She gave writer beef ri-. Yeah. Rice, eight end. Yeah. So but also like she's been wearing it the whole time. Right.

They only thing is fractured is be fry. Oh, you call credence. Yes. Saints knows. That's okay. Yankee swap way L where we from.

But I was taking today's in January might be wise. I might really want that fucking pool action. You should. But this looks like kind of every place in Palm Springs, and you could do different things. And also, I love to see more coltish ropes. Like when you go to the ace in Palm Springs. They give you those like weird robes of the hood at those like, I'm gonna say stolen some. But I've literally actually love them. They're very Marama card, and I feel like that's what they need more vibe here is this like weird colty Moroccan like eight this. Yeah. I don't know. Okay. I'm gonna stop quick though, terra cotta wonderland. It is it's very banish style. This LA. This is very easy to build in. This isn't a stretch for the area.

But in California, this is very dime dozen sort of hotel properties. Yeah. And filling in Palm Springs, and then also I feel like, you know, most lifetime movies or kind of like curated homegoods.

But you wouldn't buy it from let's say, a Spike Lee, if spike and he had homegoods kitchen in his movies, you'd have some questions. I mean, I think part of this that I respect and the only reason I.
