Here's how to support and celebrate Seattle's first-ever Black Restaurant Week
"There Seattle restaurant week and how this works is hundreds of restaurants in the city participate. They have a special three course menu with a set price, And this is all designed to lower diners in But this week is Black Restaurant Week, which is also a marketing campaign to encourage people to eat and black owned rest. Drawn. But the founders of Black Restaurant week which they're based in Houston, actually, but they have expanded out to the whole country, said that a lot of restaurants that are owned by black people don't have these fancy menus and three course menus, so they were always being left out. So I spoke with Reginald Robinson. He owns Alphas, Louisiana, Cajun seasoning and spices in tents, and he decided to open his Alien store because he's from New Orleans. And he couldn't find any of the foods and products that he misses. Red beans and rice are greens, Po boys, catfish, We have alligator. We have the stuff called Boo Dan. We have crawfish and everything in our story is have that Louisiana brand to it. Gonna top sellers is familiar at being because you know, everybody On Mondays they cooked red beings down in Louisiana just to start. Thing they do. Sometimes we even bring blueberry ice cream here. Anyone down south Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, your eyes light up. People be like, Oh, my God, you have bluebell. So Fallon Farrell, who is one of the founders of Black Restaurant week, she says, Because it's systemic racism, it could be harder for a black person to get a bank loan when they're opening a restaurant. The issued in our community is that a lot of businesses a started with people's personal savings credit cards. Usually when they do get loans. They have higher interest rates, so they just don't have that financial will go room. It's really sustained major hits to a business and so you know, a lot of them really weren't able to get the first round of P P p loans and She says, because of the marketing that happens when they do black restaurant week. They really do bring new customers. And I think last year the average ourselves increases about 30% most businesses. CIA, increasing their social media following us well And then when we talk about ongoing business opportunities, people call us all the time. They because all the time about like, Hey, we're hosting a food truck festival. Give me your list of black on food trucks, You know, so it just creates ongoing business opportunity. So the cool thing is, we kind of talked businesses like Welcome to the network because we're always able to push back our opportunities for you. So I thought to Reginald about if he wants to be identified as a black owned business, you know, at this point, there are a lot of women who say I don't want to be the best female stuff. Can I just be the best chef and I wondered if Reginald just wanted to be a business. Until people realized that you know everybody's equal. You may have to do that so we can get attention. But my whole dream is that you just treat black restaurants just like you a tree. Another restaurant. People don't believe it. But as black owned business, you have to go that extra mile. Just to prove what other people don't have to go through, and that's my dream and hopes one day did. We don't have to do that. It is black History month. That's why I thought that it would be a great opportunity to do this story. I don't have it online yet. But in about an hour if listeners go to my northwest dot com slash Rachel Bell, you can find a directory of black businesses in the region on Deacon Go. We don't support local businesses because they all need your money right now.

The Power of the Praline
"Let's get to question let us for all liens are pralines or pauline's or lines. This is the first question what are they. Oh heck well a as it turns out the word of prowling can refer to a number of types of candies. What the word means in the american south is a soft fudgy type of carmel. Lumped with pieces of pecan and like a melt in your mouth super sweet rich buttery creamy confection with the contrasting crunch and complementary sweet buttery flavor cons so good. Oh my heck it's typically made by cooking a sugar with butter milk or cream or condensed milk. Maybe a little bit of annella and then at chapter have cons. An easter this constantly until it is a thick syrup softball stage for y'all candy makers and then you pour the the mass out onto a tray or a slab cool either in a single sheet to be broken into pieces later or in individual mounds sort of the the size and shape of a cookies when they're done they're dry the touch not sticky until they start to melt which they can like skin temperature You can get variations in there that include like rum for flavoring chocolate pralines peanut butter pralines chewier caramel praline. Pralines encased in hard chocolate sometimes called turtles cetera You can make them with other nuts too. I guess that is something. I've never seen but researching this episode. I have learned. That is definitely a thing. Yeah yeah okay. So in europe we run into some kind of serious linguistic confusion. Because in france from what i understand the word Prowling means whole almonds or other nuts that are cooked in boiling sugar then cooled so that it creates like granulated coding that keeps the almond inside fresh and i think it can also mean That confection crushed into a powder for use in like other candy making or baking. Or what have you here in the states we do call nuts that have been encased in a crunchy dairy sugar coating praline nuts and praline. Pecans are a holiday delicacy in the south. Yes meanwhile back in france. There's a related term of a means groundnuts or possibly praline knots cooked into a soft paste with sugar and chocolate and then coated in a hard chocolate. Shell like a like a bon. Bon yelm right. Meanwhile in belgium the word probably means any confection consisting of a hard chocolate shell encasing a softer filling one of the traditional fillings or perhaps traditional filling being prawning. Y'all it takes me like a really silly amount of time to suss all of this out i. It was like cross-referencing i. There was a lot of translating pages from french with google translate blake. I got very confused for a very hot minutes. Yeah that's one of the funny things about when you do grow up in an area and you don't realize something as regional venture outside of it and you're like wait you call leads. What and way for us. 'cause you just kind of assume the word means this turn out not necessarily yeah Yes so so. That's fun when you're googling it is it is it adds an extra layer of challenge of fun difficulty. A wrinkle an air history perhaps mystery what brolly are really great. Are we talking about well lauren. What about the nutrition. Well there. they're treat. It's you know it's sugar in nuts and fat it treats are nice. Tweets are great Not circling tristesse would imagine. I did find I guess this is a good transition into numbers portion. Because there aren't any numbers on pralines. But i did find one. That really cracked me up. And it was hyper specific to how many germans or eating pralines and how many were having more than one a day. And i just loved that this exists and is obviously not a well. Maybe not obviously but not the feeling we're talking about so i didn't include it but it was very funny to me that like only twenty percent of germans have proud leans more than once a day like a lot to me still. I'm just paraphrasing. Don't don't quote me on that but it was okay. Gave me a chuckle. that study did. Yeah yeah i Right right sussing out the numbers for for what. We are focusing on in this episode. Which is the american. South's version of that. Melty kind of fudge. Like pecan praline situation. Sussing that out from everything else was was was tough numbers size but i will say that at shops in new orleans that still make pralines by hand. I'm just i'm not gonna say consistently. I'm so sorry for anyone who is already being driven completely up the wall by this yeah shops new orleans. Still make them by hand out like for example Lays pralines a batch of two hundred takes about forty minutes to make start to finish and dedicated. Three person team can turn out a thousand a day. Whoa right hoof at the new orleans school of cooking. which does cooking demos and classes. They make thousands a day in overlapping batches and one cook who who mostly does candy making for them By the name of our ruffin told the la times. If i had to keep account on how many i make. I think i'd probably quit
Coachella is Canceled
"Six day coachella valley music and arts festival which draws around ninety nine thousand people per day to southern california. Each bring has been canceled again. It's country music cousin. Stagecoach has also been axed for twenty twenty one a riverside county health orders said both festivals were quote gatherings of an international scope unquote so too big a risk to take in a state that still battling some of the highest numbers of covid nineteen cases in the country. It's fair to say that the pandemic has not been kind to the live music industry last march. The two biggest concert promoters in north america live nation and aig presents suspended all of their tours saying in a joint statement that they hope to come back in april. Yes april twenty twenty. We all had high hopes back then right well. April came and went and justin bieber did not come to a city near you. Both live nation and eighty g were forced to make significant staff reductions and their executives took deep. Pay cuts and this. Latest cancellation is more bad news for ag presents. Because it's the parent company of voice which put on the coachella and stagecoach festivals together. The festivals were projected to generate more than seven hundred million dollars in overall economic activity in two thousand nineteen over one hundred million of that was expected to be injected back into the economy of indio california where the festivals are held and on top of that. Nine thousand concert goers were expected to stay in nearby airbnb so that number had doubled from twenty seventeen so the coachella cancellation is a loss for g loss for indios economy. A loss for anyone hoping to rent out their house for the festival and well even the artists scheduled to headliner missing out. That's a gig. That reportedly made arianna guerande a cool eight million. According to variety but the cancellation could mean more spending money. In the pockets of disappointed ticket holders the typical coachella attendee spent around twenty three hundred dollars for tickets parking food and merchandise in two thousand eighteen money magazine reported but that money saved is likely not a salve on the burn for folks who've been waiting for a year to go to coachella and we'll have to keep waiting with coachella cancelled. Ag presents is hoping another big name festival. Firefly scheduled for june in delaware doesn't face the same fate and it's already pushed back. It's new orleans jazz fest. From late april to october of this year in hopes that the covid nineteen pandemic will be less of a threat. Meanwhile rival live nation has is on how las vegas is responding the pandemic in hopes that the city is ready to host. Its electric daisy carnival in may and live nation is already rescheduled. Its bonnaroo festival three times. It's on the calendar. Precip timber penciled. In course

Well I've an amazing support network here in New Orleans not only my partner but like amazing friends that drop of food and that truly really helps in a way. I never thought it would. It feels like all of those friends are standing right there with me and I think a lot of healthcare workers think the same thing like a message. Some food just to check in doesn't make you feel isolated in your thoughts. I TRY TO SLEEP BUT I've been waking up at like three or four. Am with this knot in my stomach of anxiety. And I try to understand where that's coming from and you know last week I was like it's because I'm scared. Mom And dad are GonNa die and then the loss few nights. It's because the last two people I saw in the hospital. I know that they're not gonNA make it. And should I have made it Betta? Should I have done should have spent more time in the room? You know. There's just like the little things that you go through your mind. I mean I've seen a lot of patients poss- in my life and participates like weird on nine and I think it's because it's such a lonely lonely fires and people are dying by.

"Flooded with music cafes dance halls and even living rooms across the city were packed with people jazz and laughter from doorways and open windows the strong thrum of base and the Twang of Banjos. Mixed with buzzing cicadas in the night air but well venues everywhere. We're at capacity. The streets were empty. No one dared walked New Orleans cobblestone lanes alone instead they stayed inside seeking shelter among the crowds and the music there. They danced not out of joy but to ward off an evil spirit that stock the streets. They called him the tax man but he described himself as a fell demon from hottest hell and he'd written to the papers just days before with a proposition on Tuesday as he passed over the city. Any home with a jazz band in full swing would be spared his bloody axe. The city heated his request that night. The people of New Orleans danced for their lives. They spent our swinging and jiving to a band that never stopped. They danced until their feet ached and then they dance. Some more swing from exhaustion until the early morning hours hoping the jazz loving demon would be satisfied. When dawn broke they found Orleans had been spared. Not a single life was taken that night but only because it seemed there. Angel of deaf had spilled blood in a new city. Hi I'm Greg Paulson.

"Spread going on at that time. That has some impact on what we're seeing now on. Top of that and really the more difficult is that you're gonNA fine like in every catastrophic event that the poor going to get hurt substantially more than those who don't have resources. I haven't seen the demographic numbers on. Who's coming to the onus? And who's not but as a general rule when any kind of massive you've been hits. It has an an outsized impact on those folks don't have access to food shelter healthcare etc etc. My guess is going to play that way. Unfortunately we have a large number of poor people. In the south of the United States of America I would expect to see the numbers worth worse in the poor areas of the country rather than the wealthy areas. Although this epidemic does not discriminate in terms of who touches we'll see about what the particular outcomes on the mentality rate. But we're all in this together and we're in the soup and the only way we're GONNA get out is together. I'm sure you must know people impacted by already. I feel like we all are in a position where we know. Let me say this. I don't know about anybody else on this call but I know a number of people who have succumbed to this illness already and we not only have had loss of life with people that we personally no but there are a number of different People that we know that are unemployed now. Their businesses are likely not to come back. The whole nature of the country is going to be challenged by. You know how how badly hurt in the short term. We are but as importantly it's going to say a lot about the character of our country. You see it magnifying right now. Those things that are really rough and tough about us are rougher and tougher and worse those things that glorious like people helping each other that never knew each other run into the fire. The kinds of sacrifices people are making that. Give you hope terrific. You know people's personalities being magnified the president's clearly I'm as well as all other elected officials so you know this is going to be a life. Changing Experience Katrina hit. The only thing people talked about a New Orleans was where were you before Katrina? And where will you after Katrina? Well that's going to be the true with the country on the corona bars for the foreseeable future and I don't know that we can really see too far ahead. What's in front of US right now? Is that the thing that most American people can do to help. Each other is to listen to you governors and you mayors and stay away from each other. That's how you can show your greatest love for each other and then let's lift each other up like we always do after this catastrophic craft event. But you be clear. This is going to be with a lot of pain. It's going to require a tremendous amount of sacrifice. It's GonNa hurt more than we think. It's going to take longer than we're being told. And when not nearly as prepared on the ground as the national voices claim that we are all that stuff that they're talking about in the White House just because you issue an order from that podium doesn't mean that it's on the ground and there is a huge distance between the lip and the cop as President Clinton used to say on those issues and the healthcare providers on the ground doctors and emergency rooms. I am talking to. They're saying they don't have enough stuff. They don't have enough equipment. They don't have enough beds. They don't have enough ventilators and what that means is without being too harsh about it is that they cannot treat people well and more people will succumb to the illness that needed to because of that.

"Everyone I'm David the CNN political director. This is the daily. Dc president trump took to the White House podium yesterday to echo his health experts in warning of a potentially staggering death toll. You're talking about deaths. Even the low end you were shocked when one one hundred and twenty thousand two hundred thousand people over potentially a very short period of time. I want every American to be prepared for the hard days that lie ahead. We're going to go through a very tough two weeks. Those hard days are already here of course for many Americans living in these so-called hotspots across the country including the people of New Orleans which has close to two thousand cases in over a hundred deaths and could run outta ventilators by the end of this week. According to the governor joining me now to take us inside on how a city responds to an escalating crisis. Like the one. We're facing former New Orleans mayor and current CNN political contributor Mitchell Andrew Maryland. Thank you so much for being here. Thank you David. Vava me so I I WANNA get your reaction to what you're observing happening in the city. You love so dearly in that you lead When you see it on the maps and you see the curve there and you see what's happening as as one of the real hot spots in this grown virus epidemic. Well a number of conflicting thoughts. Go through your mind right away. First of all as someone who has lieutenant governor and mayor went through maybe fifteen to twenty massive emergencies from Katrina to Rita I- Gustaf national recession. Bp OIL SPILL. A number of different hurricanes mass shootings threatened attacks. One of the things that you do right away as soon as you get elected is think about how you organize yourself to be able to respond to things that you know are coming and then things that you cannot see so the first priority is to hire really competent people who not only can run the day to day operations of government but also have a mission of Security Homeland Security Public Safety Security Health Security people who can look up about what might be coming your way as opposed to looking down in front of you every day and mayors across America are shoulder the responsibility of making sure that those things are in place. Because as you're witnessing right now in this moment they are the front lines of every major epidemic or catastrophic event whether it's a pandemic whether it's a natural.

"In the Early Twentieth Century New Orleans was haunted by violent fiend called the cleaver for months this faceless criminal broke into the homes of Italian grocers and brutally attacked them while they slept but in one thousand. Nine hundred eleven. The Phantom cleaver committed his first actual kill the murder of twenty six year old. Joseph toffee sparked a highly publicized investigation to find the man responsible but months past and the trail went cold the cleaver had seemingly disappeared into thin air but seven years later in the spring of nineteen eighteen. He came back with a vengeance on. May Twenty Second Andrew. Mogia was drinking earlier that day. The twenty eight year old had received his draft card. He just been conscripted overseas to fight in World War. One scared out of his wits. The young man went to the local bar to forget his troubles in a pint around three. Am The next morning. Andrew stumbled home to the corner of Magnolia and upper line streets where he lived with his older brother. Joseph and his wife Catherine once inside. He fell into the bed and passed out around four thirty. A M still groggy from booze. Andrew woke up to an odd sound. It came from the other side of the shared wall that divided his room from Joseph and Catherine's bedroom listening closely. He realized what it was groaning. Even coming out of drunken stupor. Andrew knew something was deeply wrong but he couldn't bring himself to open his brother's bedroom door instead. He sprinted down the street to his older brother. Jacobs home and begged him to back to the house when they approached the back door. The two brothers stopped dead in their tracks. The door had been left ajar and one of its wooden panels had been removed someone had broken in hearts pouty. The brothers entered anyway and walk down the hall to Joseph and Catherine's Bedroom Jacob knocked softly but there was no answer. The two brothers steeled themselves and open the door inside the room. A heavy sent lingered damp and metallic and as soon as there is adjusted to the dark. The brothers saw a horrific tableau their sister in law Catherine laid on the floor in a pool of blood her throat slit so severely. She'd been nearly decapitated but Joseph miraculously was still alive. Andrew Jacob rush to the blood-soaked bed where their brother gasped for breath clinging to life. The brothers rang the police station and called for an ambulance. But by the time they derived Joseph Maggio had lost his struggle with death over the next few days. Detectives scoured the property for evidence in the bathtub. They found a murder weapon. A bloody axe that had belonged to Joseph Maggio. They also discovered a second weapon. A stainless steel straight razor found in the neighbors rose trellis at this. Detectives immediately turned their attention to the two module. Brothers Andrew Maggio was a barber by trade and the discovery of straight razor was especially incriminating and the fact that both men had waited so long before checking on Joseph and Katherine was deeply suspicious detectives so both. Maggio brothers were taken in for questioning and though they released Jacob fairly quickly they kept Andrew despite the many telltale signs. None of the detectives connected the macchia case to the brutal cleaver attacks seven years earlier this was due in large part to a change in the force just a few years prior New Orleans Chief of Detectives Jim Reynolds had been killed and John. Dantonio the Italian specialist had since retired their replacements. The no nonsense chief. Frank T MOONEY and Italian specialists. Arthur Morello had no professional knowledge of those cases but soon a mysterious discovery would make the connection for them shells to block away from the crime scene. Detectives FOUND A CRYPTIC MESSAGE. Chalked onto the sidewalk in a childish scrawl. It read Mrs Module is going to sit up tonight just like Mrs Tony. Investigators were baffled. They couldn't interpret what it possibly meant. Was it a message from the killer themselves? Or maybe a prank done in poor taste by some neighborhood delinquents but when local papers got a hold of the clue they revealed the answer. The name Mrs Tony was referring to the wife of Tony Sambre. That Italian Grocer who seven years before papers claimed had been one of the victims of the infamous cleaver after this realization New Orleans. Newspapers were rampant with speculation. Was it possible that the cleaver was back stalking the city streets after seven years of dormancy or was this killer merely an imitator a copycat according to criminologist race. Arete copycats are most often influenced by the media whether through journalism or entertainment by disseminating details of various crimes the media unwittingly inspires imitators however seret clarifies that exposure to these details does not cause a crime to occur but rather shapes its nature essentially the media does not serve as a motivation are catalyst but it does influence a pre existing criminals style in the case of the cleaver. It's possible that the Maggio's killer was actually a lesser known criminal inspired by his methods at the time the attacks had garnered a fair amount of coverage from local newspapers however still begs the question of why the imitator would have waited seven years to strike after all had had been nearly a decade since the cleaver made headlines so why now it's less likely that the Maggio's murders were the work of a copycat and they were of the cleaver himself as we now know. Serial killers will commonly act in cycles. These typically include an active period of murder as well as dormant phase in which they stop killing a stretch of time and some killers have longer dormancy periods than others but historian Miriam See Davis gives another possible explanation. That for the last seven years. The cleaver had been imprisoned most likely due to a less serious felony like robbery. And as the papers across the city speculated nearly a decade of pent up bloodlust had led the very same cleaver to the Maggio's doorstep but despite the rampant reporting connecting Maggio's murder to the clear of the Nineteen tends detectives on the case largely ignored this coverage for exactly what it was conjecture in their minds. The most plausible suspect was not some phantom killer but the man right in front of them twenty eight year. Old Andrew Macho police kept Andrew in custody as a material witness for the crime but at the time law enforcement was less likely to question their suspects than they were to torture them for days. Andrew was subjected to brutal interrogation in a bear sweltering room at police headquarters and though he begged they refuse to let him attend his brother and sister in law's funeral instead. He endured hours of detective screaming in his face accusing him of butchering his own family. They threw his brother's blood-soaked clothes at him and demanded that he confess but each day Andrew maintained his innocence and finally chief Mooney arranged for his release. Their interrogation yielded nothing. Andrew Mogia. Wasn't there man just like before the trail went cold then. Almost exactly a month. After Joseph and Katherine Maggio's murder on June twenty-sixth one thousand nine hundred nineteen another immigrant. Grocer was attacked with an axe but this time they were Polish early that morning during an already humid New Orleans. Summer delivery man. John czanka pulled his wagon up to Louis. Bessemer grocery store it was a routine stop and Bessemer. Polish immigrants was a loyal customer but that day the store was inexplicably closed confused. Czanka made his way around the store knocking at various doors and calling to anyone inside and finally sixty year old Louis Bessemer appeared. Bessemer looked awful exhausted and Pale but more alarmingly he was bleeding from a still fresh wound on his head but bessemer brushed off the injury telling Czanka that it was nothing just an accident. When CZANKA asked Bessemer Harriet his mistress was hurt. Bessemer was bizarrely nonchalant. He told Czanka he didn't know inside. Czanka phone twenty nine year old. Harriet low barely conscious collapsed on a bed soaked in Crimson. Her skull had been cracked open and dark. Blood matted her long dark hair as Sonko kneeled next to her. She could only whisper. Police were immediately to the scene where they noticed telltale signs that link the crime to the Maggio case the attack had occurred early in the morning. Nothing had been taken from the home and the murder weapon and old. Rusted acts was left at the scene. The axes dull blade had most likely saved their lives. However a series of other bizarre details gave chief Mooney doubts that this was actually a different attacker than the Maggio's killer. There was forced entry. Neighbors reported hearing no screaming or signs of a struggle and Harriet centuries were much more severe than Bessemer Bessemer was left with nothing but a long gash above his eye dealt from a single blow. Harriet however had been struck on her arms and chest multiple times and sustained to blows to the head which split.
"new orleans" Discussed on The Adventures of Memento Mori
"I started this episode like every other episode. Find a topic and then find experts about the topic but to answer the question. Why does New Orleans embraced death as a culture? I didn't really know who the experts were. So I took some advice from a friend who had lived there. Just show up and go with the flow. You'll never find your answer with the plan. What is the danger of the cemetery's partly? Why do they need saved? Well they they continue to get older. The climate here the weather Natural disasters vandalism theft and apathy. But I didn't need a place to start my name's Amanda Walker. I'm the executive director of save our cemeteries so I found a nonprofit that was trying to save the local cemeteries and gave tours. My Name's Adam Stevenson. I'm a volunteer tour. Guide for Samer Cemeteries. Our job is to get people back into the cemeteries to appreciate them. I have one question before we go on as really nothing to do with cemeteries. What is the proper way to say? I know where you're going with. That New Orleans Orleans New Orleans so fond of. She's the only other person to pronounce the city of New Orleans. New Orleans ever ever ever say Nolan's people will laugh at you. Well that saved me from some embarrassment because I really wanted to say Nolan's as often as I possibly could another piece of advice that Amanda shared with me is that nobody that actually is from their calls. It the big easy because as I'm about to learn New Orleans ain't that big and it sure as hell ain't that easy. Misery is a word that I use on to all the time and I've actually referred to New Orleans specifically before the American war is being misery. Central I cannot think from Western point of view place worse to live two hundred years ago. Here imagine being in France and coming here might rather be dead. I mean it's hot. It's humid there. Hurricanes and snakes diseases. It's just the worst so you had to figure how. How are you gonNA live here? If you're like me. Junior high school American history is a bit of a blur so as a refresh. If France thought Louisiana was misery central. Why did they still colonize it? The French came here for a couple of reasons. The first reason is that the French claimed Louisiana Lasalle claim Louisiana. I think sixteen eighty two. I don't remember the exact aide who cares. The exact date was Louisiana. Was everything drained by the Mississippi River and its tributaries understand that Europe? That was their thing. They're moving to the new world and claiming territories. They wanted goal. They wanted silver. They wanted what happened and during the new world territory land grab. The city of New Orleans was built because of its strategic location just before it joins the Gulf of Mexico the Mississippi River snakes into a crescent moon providing the only place to build the port but the French never really cared about Louisiana. I mean it didn't create because there were no gold mines. There was no Pearl Fisheries. Whatever said he's kind of sat there and eventually it's more complicated and I'm telling right now but then they gave the Spanish. The Spanish remploy forbid gave it to the French again and then eventually Americans got it and the Americans received Louisiana because they didn't want Louisiana that one of the port of New Orleans at the time half of American goods imported and exported came through the port of New Orleans this included the African slave trade. The savior was found in seventeen eighteen. The first enslaved Africans arrived here in seventeen nineteen and I mentioned this on tour before that there are those who say that New Orleans. The French city. It's Spanish city. It's a Caribbean city. It's whatever it's also an African setting everything that you come down here to see that his New Orleans you could go to Sheboygan you come here buddy come here. Because the culture in every aspect of our culture has an influence to it. Traditionally European colonizers buried their dead and then tried to do the same here but there was a problem nor liens is a swamp so if you bury the body it would soon just pop right. Back up to the surface and because cremation was against Catholic law. They started burying the bodies in the levy on the high ground of the river but then there was an even bigger problem. They were digging a lot of holes in the only thing separating the city from the Mississippi River so eventually that's where the above ground barrels came from. They evolved there originally sort of like just right above the ground. And then if you look at you know go through Latin America the Caribbean you will see above ground tombs. The Latin Spanish thing but also parallel says in Paris. The most famous cemetery on this planet these in the Western world you have above ground tunes. There was a concept. Change in idea about a cemetery obscure came. It changed from being a graveyard and someplace where there was. Death in horror to someplace was almost more pastoral. It was almost an attempt to bring a little bit of heaven or the peace down to Earth. And so you go through PAL Hsieh's in Paris and you see these beautiful sculptures. It's beautiful and that's what they tried to do here. And so when he walked. These above ground cemeteries. It's a function of all these things. Functional local topography yes. It's a function of Latin American adaptations to local culture but French fashion as well. But what's unique is that is a fusion of all these different cultures coming together. Which of course is really honestly a metaphor for the city of new ones in general so I think you said that seventy percent or seventy five percents of Saint Louis unwanted or abandoned abandoned. Is that the one where Nicholas Cage has its period. What's for the abandoned stuff? What is the process? So say if you're not a rich celebrity say you are richer liberty. What can you still how? How does one go about a tomb that has not seen a burial in fifty years or more the archdiocese for example? We'll say that's abandoned. And then they can renovate it not touch it. But it is a lengthy process and a lot of people like I said don't have deeds and so it's not one person's in perpetuity you can be with a whole generation of your family in one two. That's the whole point. The whole point is somebody who holds deed owns the cemetery the tomb and then that gets passed down so the whole point is be used generation by generation by generation Maria Vo. There's there eighty nine documented burials in her tomb and some of them are slave former slaves. That had nowhere to go infants. That died there. People that are black white brown all in that one tomb and they'd had nowhere to go so she was kind enough to to allow that so It doesn't have to necessarily be your family. If you buy a tomb there remains have to be moved elsewhere. You can't just shove grandma with someone else's Graham on after you you buy it. It's it's it's complicated so there is no I am not in Cheboygan. Mineta of this is just confirmation bias because a short death is it's it's death is overt in the sense of. It is a part of this city. I think you're hesitant to answer. I'm hesitant answered in the sense that I don't think that most New Orleans embraced death and I think maybe it's it's sort of an ineffable question I and that's almost. I don't want to feel pretentious by saying I'll explain this. Let me explain why we embrace death. We don't embrace step. Maybe I was wrong. Maybe New Orleans doesn't embrace death in its culture. Maybe I just think that because I spent the last eight hours in a cemetery after the fabulous tour Amanda and Adam recommended that I had determined and find a gentleman by name of Sylvester Francis if I wanted to know about the real culture of New Orleans. He's just the person to tell me after this palos fellow provocateurs that believe death as topic worth talking about. We need your help spreading the would be slightly odd yet.

"And we're back. Thank you sponsor. Yes. Thank you. I would guess that for a lot of you listeners when you hear New Orleans, you think drinking whether that's mardi gras related or in general French quarter very late night shenanigans. Yes. It's one of the main reasons behind its tourist draw the fact that you can walk around with drinks on the streets or as they're called go. We got to speak with Elizabeth Pearce founder of drink and learn which is a walking tour that looks into the history of cocktails, and cocktail culture. She also has a podcast also called drink and learned that you should all-czech out. Here's Elizabeth you cannot understand Orleans unless you understand it's drinking. You're not required to participate in it. But at least need to know what's going on. So I love asleep from the very early stage. We were drinking for the sick and the children, but. But it's because we are in a swamp. Life was hard the government ignoring you things are going to crappy. Then like, you you drink for this is what people do and people continue to do in in difficult situations. But anyway, so all of these like facets contribute to an identity, and that one of the pillars of that identity is about. Cutting loose and drinking is an integral part of that drinking is different in New Orleans, or at least it is among New Orleans. Oh, yeah. It's not something you do to get drunk, or at least most of the time. Generally. It's not that's amateur. Our children are exposed to responsible drinking at a young age to the idea of ago Cup or a before dinner drink. We have a whole episode on New Orleans cocktails and drinking culture plan. Oh, yeah. But in the meantime, here's Elizabeth again describing the local attitude towards drinking. It's very civilized, and it isn't hasty, and if you have a drink in your hand, and this is true for coffee too. But. Do you have the a beer and all kind of slow you down makes you pause kind of look around like, oh, I had noticed that house in my neighborhood before that balcony, stop and listen to a musician. It it alters the way that noon interact in public space, and the other thing that I think it does this is stretching it a little bit. But like go with me. Okay. When you were in a restaurant. We all roll at a table. And if someone came in joined us, we would look scans at them. That is weird because this is like our area. And it's like we planted a flag. But if you're in a bar people sitting next to you, and they will talk to you. And you do not think there is anything amiss with that. Now, you may not talk back to them are they may be creepy or whatever. But the the interaction is publicly sanctioned, and it often leads to some really delightful encounters unexpected, you know, you meet people in a bar. You don't meet in restaurant same way until I believe that the walking with the drink carry the spirit of the bar, which that it makes you just a little more open to the chance encounter the possibility. Yeah. To engage with the world around him. It's difficult to capture in audio in like a forty minute to an hour episode everything that New Orleans is the experience of being there. But it is heavy and joyous. It's the culmination of all of these cultures and all of this history super producer Dylan summed up his first experience this way in studio when we got back from our trip. I've never been anywhere. At least on that scale makes you come through New York, and you can see all these different cultures coming together. But at that scale, I'd never been anywhere that had such strong influence from such different cultures that was coming together. And that they were so determined to preserve and to promote and just the way that things come together where you can eat like four different places in the world in one bowl. It's amazing. Yeah. This has says French influenced the says Caribbean influences as talion influence this has like the Creole Cajun influence. It's just I loved it. I I love being able to experience that through food because I don't know if I've ever been anywhere where I ate a dish and experienced so much of the world in one dish. So that was really really cool. And Dickie Brennan told this story of a.

"My first time in New Orleans while my best friend and travel, buddy. Cried over her ex boyfriend. I was like I'm awkwardly eat this meat and try to console you. He's also the author of several books. Three time James beard best chef of the south semifinalists and finalists. And yes top chef contestant. He offered up the song version of these events. Mid interview eighteen fourteen we took a little trip along with Colonel Jackson down the mighty Mississippi took a little bacon, and we took a little beans fought the bloody British in New Orleans. Oh, it was great. Did you put in this cultural note about the war of eighteen twelve just to have him sing about it not to have him sing? But that was definitely a plus. Yeah. Also, interesting side note by the time the battle of New Orleans took place the treaty to end the war of eighteen twelve had already been signed. It just took a while to get word out to New Orleans by this point New Orleans was a rich city in the mid nineteenth century, you could find the largest concentration of millionaires between New Orleans and Baton Rouge due to things like the slave trade and sugar plantations. The civil war changed this deeply enor- liens went from an area of wealth to one of poverty and racial tension. A free people of color and man's paid slaves entered local politics, and then we're forced out in eighteen seventies. As the Ku Klux Klan rose to power to cover the labor shortage plantation owners brought immigrants from the Philippines, China and Sicily, and eventually a lot of Italians came over due to political strife in that whole area. The Chinese mostly kept their traditional foods. And for decades, they were distinct to Chinatown areas and restaurants in New Orleans, but. The Filipinos and talion had a pretty deep influence on Creole cuisine Creole cuisine being the cuisine of the city. We spoke with Amy sins. The founder of Lang LA a culinary entertainment company as she describes it a traveling food show named after the effort mentioned Madame lingua New Orleans is I think one of the few places where when you go to get a Snickers bar or your reese's. Peanut butter cups at the grocery store, right next to it is a little bag of dried shrimp, and that is thanks to the Manila men who taught us that you can take the sweet lake shrimp, dry them in the sun. If you'd like to eat them as a snack you can. But if you are making a seafood Gumbo, and you're stock just needs a little more fortification. You throw the shrimp in. That's you know, the Filipino community introduced us to that. But they don't get full credit for. Why are seafood Gumbo can be? So delicious around the eighteen fifties is when the Sicilian started to move in and mass and they entered -duced New Orleans to the canned tomato they can to mate a single handedly transformed every New Orleans dish. So it kind of turned into Cajun was rustic country Creole was fancy city. And then it was like does it have tomato. Or does it not have a tomato? We'll talk more about the interplay between Cajun and Creole in a bit. But so at the same time the postwar period produced a lot of art, museums, electrified street, cards and music. Yes. Jazz by the late nineteenth century, New Orleans was developing jazz, as we know it we spoke with Eric cypher a historian with the aforementioned New Orleans historic collective about. Well about a lot of jazz history. But of particular interest might be the history of the iconic second line. If you didn't know second lines are parades descended from jazz funerals nowadays, they're popular is something you might do for your wedding or like a Tuesday. Yes, exactly. It is a celebration event that invites participation you and super producer Dylan were invited to join a second line while we were there. Oh, yeah. One was passing bias, and it almost swept us up. It was a great experience for me because I was on the phone trying to speak to someone that I learned New Orleans is not a great city for trying to hear someone on the phone. And this participation. That's where the name comes from at least in part the folks hosting and organizing the parade which in a funeral..

"That quote that you heard at the top was from Dr Jessica Harris whose ager analyst podcast her in the author of several books exploring African and Caribbean food ways that quote, the south is north from here fundamentally changed how we thought about New Orleans. She wasn't the only one who said it either. We heard it echoed from Dr Howard Conyers who is both a barbecue pit master and an actual rocket scientist. Also, New Orleans is very much a different city from the rest of the south isn't really a different city from the rest of United States. The international. City. I will say is definitely the northernmost Caribbean city to start thinking about the Haitian revolution into who owned. Territories is certain time before New Orleans became part of the United States in a food experiences up in a part of I don't think today anywhere else. We spoke with might be a little biased. But if you go there, you feel it and everyone talked about it. Here's Katie Cass Burien co owner of our knows a restaurant that celebrated its hundredth birthday last year. People celebrate a Monday, like it's, you know, not happen again the next week. I, and that's what I say that people have joie to be here that's unmatched. And you know, it doesn't have to be anything really crazy going on that people are just out one have a good time into this from the general manager Christopher Horner over at the Bombay club it cocktail bar in the heart of the French quarter. You Orleans is like New Orleans city I've ever been in. As a great feel all the time. It's comfortable if not perfect, and that's that's that's New Orleans. And here's Rebecca shatman, the general manager at broussard's, another one of the city's oldest restaurants. There's no other place. Like, there's nowhere else that you can walk and feel the history, but also feeling gauged with your food and your senses. And this the vibrancy, and there's it's just a feeling, you know, it's the people it's the environment. It's the history. It's the culture it's how we continue to honor the past but really wanna push forward. As author William Faulkner once wrote the past isn't dead in New Orleans that was also echoed by a tourist leader that I my first time in New Orleans, it's a ghost tour. And he said he said it this way, the dead, don't stay dead and. Orleans. We experienced while. We were there the dead people part. But well well coming from Atlanta where things over ten years older torn down. We all felt this history in the air, restaurants or bars made Goldstone above ground. Cemetery is not to mention ghost or upon ghost tour and go story upon ghost story. We missed are scheduled ghost tour, and I'm still so mad about it. But our interviewees made up for it. How anyway. Yeah. Especially doing a show about food. The history of New Orleans is very present. You can tell the whole story of the city through food and drink so a quick history lesson. Brief because Norrland's is as mentioned and intimidating fifty to tackle. Oh, yeah. We've probably left things out. We're sorry. We're trying to not become a like forty hour New Orleans podcast. I wouldn't be opposed per se. No, it would be a shift action.

"Back to New Orleans where we had a targeting call. Against middle. Tennessee Zach Dobson I think he has been thrown out of the game. You're correct, sir. I didn't quite catch the announcement by referee Adams Savoy, but David explain this because it's targeting call and he wasn't a helmet to helmet hit. But he was a stuck his helmet in the mid section of the punt returner Clinton duck was getting ready to make the play on the Pont reception. He wasn't even able to get over towards the ball, which is a few yards to his right. Maybe four or five yards. But before we had an opportunity to go over make a play. Dobson got down the field, the true freshman. He's had a rough night. He's had some tough plays. But very high impact place in night. But he leads with his helmet, right? Into the abdomen of Clinton. Doc. That's a really dangerous play because ducks looking up in the air for the football and leading with your helmet with the crowd of the helmet. You don't have to go helmet-to-helmet or up in the neck area. If you're leading with the crown a helmet a special. With the defensive player that's grounds for targeting and it being disqualified and Dobson's already been led into the tunnel. All right. The penalty pushes the ball up to the thirty six yard line. First and ten for the mountaineers who already lead thirty one six. And that was a twenty four six game at the half. They took the opening third quarter kickoff marched down and scored middle. Tennessee got a torch midfield had pontoon that we just had that place announced the first down in ten. Here's a running play out to the left and trying to some extra yards out of it. It's number six Cameron people's for Stanley seen him tonight to freshman from Louisville Alabama picks up about let's see up to the thirty seven. So we got a yard second down and nine coming up. You're just joining us. This game was tilting blue raiders way early couple of mistakes turnovers on apps states first couple of possessions, but middle Tennessee could not capitalize good field position. Here we go people's again, turning right corner breaks the tackle these to the fifty far sideline forty breaks. Another tackle at the thirty down the sideline. Ten five touchdowns. Cameron people's takes it to the house. How about sixty three yards? However there is a flag on the play factors a flag. There's two of them down one near the goal line. One back at the thirty yard line. Zach Thomas the quarterback was shaken up on the play and he is heading to that sideline with a trainer. So let's see what the penalties are four. Once again, Adam Savoy, these officials are out of the AFC. We'll tell us the penalties. I don't see anybody. Coming back down field. David. Let's this is gonna count. I wonder if this was a a roughing com quarterback on just a run play. He might have been targeted and he doesn't look. He's coming off the to the sideline. He does. Not look good. Officials still talking it over here. So how about people's with that huge Ron broke a couple of tackles?.
