You were right, holy cow, just like that, Republican unity, just like that, the Democrats are squealing like stuck pigs over an uber conservative speaker, just like that, everybody came together and delivered a home run. Did you hear this guy's speech yesterday? Oh, my word. This is the... Oh, Mark, he's the Democrats' worst nightmare. Of course he is. And they now own this. They own this. They're the ones that said, okay, we'll get rid of Kevin McCarthy along with Matt Gaetz. And by the way, you got to tip the hat to Matt Gaetz because he comes out of this thing as the victor of all of it. Everybody is... You know, he was right all along. We got a super conservative speaker now, and he's the kind of speaker, Mark, that is perfect because he doesn't crave the limelight. He's not clamoring for hits on Laura Ingraham's show. He's not a guy that is flashy, but boy, is he solid. Oh, my gosh. And you were saying it, Mark Davis fans unite, and I'm one of them because you've been saying it all along. He was your pick. And I'm like, who the heck is Mike Johnson? You mocked me about weighing down segments with Joe Schmoe from the 35th district of Oregon. Outside Peoria, you know, but you were right, Mark, and your instincts are so good and kudos to you. And gosh, do I feel great today about where we are. I am so, so glad. You want to feel better about something? This takes 10 or 15 seconds. I don't know that I can. Well, then let's just add just a golden moment from the House floor. This will take 15 seconds, and I promised it to people, I might as well share it with my buddy. Here's Democrat Pete Aguilar whining about Mike Johnson. And let me ask you this, do you live in the 13th, is your compound there in the condo in the 13th district as part of Pinellas County, then the familiarity that I'm guessing with Anna Paulina Luna. Love Anna Paulina Luna. Well, you're going to love her a little more because she throws a little commentary down in the middle of a pause as Pete Aguilar is fussing and moaning about Mike Johnson. This has been about one thing. This has been about who can appease Donald Trump. House Republicans have put their names behind someone who has been called the most important architect of the Electoral College objections.

A highlight from 121: Part 2: Mike Fredericks Hunts Cartel Bosses and Survives a Terrorist Attack
"What were the, uh, what was your, what was the meat and potatoes? What were the staples for you in terms of making cases? What was big at that time? You know, I tried heroin when I first got up there and I didn't want to rephrase that. I attempted to make heroin cases. I brought an informant up from Portland and he kind of jerked me around. I mean, it was a very ethnic thing at the time. He didn't make any cases. So then I kind of switched to cocaine. Methamphetamine was big. We had guys doing meth up there. You had meth labs in Northern Idaho and we coordinated. There were only two agents in Idaho and two agents in all of the state of Montana. So it wasn't unusual for me to take a case number in concert with either Idaho or Montana agents. And then I'd do like the undercover or I'd run cases in those states, stuff like that. So we knocked off a couple of meth labs. There was one that was kind of a, it was a predecessor to Breaking Bad because my lab case was in a motor home. They were buying the precursor chemicals from Oregon, Washington. I don't know if they got the chemicals actually from Idaho or not, but they were bouncing around. And six months I was tracking these guys, tracking the chemicals, tracking where they were, identifying the organization, the cook and all this kind of stuff. And then when it ultimately came down, they were in a motor home on the banks of the Columbia River, which divides Oregon and Washington, outside of Hermiston, Oregon, the Pendleton, Hermiston, Oregon, or in Eastern Oregon, that area. And we took them down and it turned into a big deal because we got, I don't know, a couple of pounds of meth. We got a bunch of cars, we got five weapons, and it went to the appellate court, the Ninth Circuit appellate in San Francisco. You mean the Ninth Circuit? Yes, exactly. But they upheld the convictions. Everybody went down. Were they affiliated with biker gangs or, you know, any drug organizations? Or was this just more of a freelance operation? No, this was freelance. This was one guy, one old time cooker in quotes, that actually I got him twice. I got him back to back simultaneously. He ran a lab in a motel in Clarkston, Washington. At the same time he was coordinating the lab, the motor home lab that we took off in Oregon. So we were doing the motor home lab primarily. I mean, we had like four or five different DEA offices respond. We had a plane on the final stage. We had the state police. We had everybody working on it. And simultaneously he blew up, inadvertently blew up the lab in the motel in Clarkston, Washington. Isn't that the way it is for most of these guys? This isn't the safest thing to do. Yeah. But I tracked him simultaneously to doing the other one. And then once we arrested him and indicted him in the district of Oregon, I also got him indicted in the district of Eastern Washington and put him in jail again behind. I mean, he had back to back sentences in two different federal districts, which was kind of cool. And I turned an informant that was his muscle guy, his guy on the motel lab. And he'd been a Vietnam vet. He was an addict. He testified and he was a character too. I mean, I met him and tried to recruit him and he was wearing a 45 revolver on his hip, like a Western gun fighter.

"Instead of fucking pulling your kids out of a car. All right, and that is Metallica James Hetfield to send them one of my hats. I don't know if you got it or not, but I sent it to one of their recording studios, California. The only one I know that they have, this is Ian Trottier here, folks, for discussions of truth. I'm going to give you a monologue, if you will, today. It's just me, no guests. It's been a while here since I have released a podcast. People ask me all the time, left and right. I blow people away with some of the knowledge that I have, and they ask me, Ian, when did you start uncovering the deep state? When did you start looking into this? It's very simple, it's very easy. 2016, Miami Beach, the Zika virus. A good friend of mine who's no longer with us, fortunately passed away the fall of 2019. David got me looking into the Zika virus. Wow, that has been four years now that David's been gone. David got me looking into the Zika virus and the pesticide. As I began digging down the road, of course, it's not even cliché, really. It was the Rockefeller Foundation involved in the Zika virus and also the pesticide. I was quickly turned on to Anthony Sutton, who is a Stanford Hoover Fellow. He was writing about the corruption in the Federal Reserve. I then found him talking about the Hegelian dialectic, which is essentially how the Rothschild made their fortune over centuries, creating and controlling conflict in Europe. It was pretty simple. Those are the dots that I've connected. You can certainly agree with them or not, but some of these things are simply not contestable. If you take, for instance, and this is something that I commonly tell people. I have them, and you can do it right now if you're listening to me. Just go to Google, go to Yahoo, whatever it may be, and type in U .S. Grand Union flag. Now open up another browser and type in British East Indies Company flag. What you have there, folks, is the same flag, which means no taxation without representation. The British East Indies Company, which was bringing in tea into the Boston Harbor, that ended up being who actually funded the American Revolution. This is fact. You can cross -check it. George Washington owned shares in the British East Indies Company. In fact, Elihu Yale, if you go down the Skull and Bones Road, which is what Anthony Sutton will take you down, Elihu Yale was a principal shareholder of the British East Indies Company. The Skull and Bones Society, otherwise connected to the Illuminati out of Bavaria, is nothing more than a secret society that's linked to the Vatican. These are secret societies which are meant to essentially invade society on the local level. That's essentially what that ends up being. Eric John Phelps is a historian based out of Pennsylvania that I commonly and frequently allude to. I invited him to the Take Back Oregon event that I principally was principal in organizing last month. Hopefully those folks like to get a movement going again for those folks. That state needs a lot of help. The country needs help. But I invited Eric John Phelps to that rally. He was unable to attend. But what Eric John Phelps will tell you is he, of course, he's religious. He goes down that religious road. What's the cornerstone of the U .S. Constitution? Well, it is religious freedom. The Mayflower set sail, I think it was from Dartmouth, landed on Plymouth Rock. Dartmouth in England, they set sail seeking religious freedom. That is the principle, that is the cornerstone for the creation of what later became known as the United States. And that is why this country exists today, really because of those religious freedom fighters from England. I'm going to read an article for you that I wrote. Of late, I'm using two platforms to release my writings. Go right now to Tryon Day Publishing. Go to Tryon Day or Books a Million and order my book. It took me over four years to write that book.

He's going to publish it when he gets around to it. It's a small publishing house, Chris. Tryon Day Publishing is a small publishing house. They published work for Sean Stone, Oliver Stone's son. He's published Whitney Webb's recent book last year. He's got my manuscript. I have an agreement. He'll publish it. Please order it. Please do that. It's called Freedom Reserve, No More Lies, Tryon Day Publishing. In the meantime, I am working on two new book ideas. I'm working on one book. I'm working on two new book ideas. I'm basically working on one book actively and a second book idea. I haven't formatted that yet. In the interim, I've had time to do this. I have in the past couple of weeks, been writing articles.

Check out the first episode. It's not that long. It's really well done. And you will definitely 100 % enjoy it. Okay. Let's bring in the cuz. Let's talk some football. Let's talk some wound licking with some bets, some Eagles, all kinds of things. It's all next. First, our friends from Pearl Jam. Pearl Jam! All right. We are taping this. It is 830 Pacific time on Sunday night. Cousin Sal is here as always. He's wearing a nice, fresh Oregon hat that I think you probably bought probably this weekend. You went to visit your son? Smells very new. Yeah, I went to visit my son. I'm not happy with the way my hair looks. And I think the hat's an improvement. So what am I going to do? It looks great. We just watched Dolphins Eagles just now. And at the same time, Rangers Astros was happening. And it really felt like, I don't know, it felt like a great October sports night there. And then Texas blew it open in the end. But next week, we'll have basketball. There will be baseball going on. It'll really feel like October. The Eagles though. So right as I start sending texts to Eagles people in my life wondering what's going on with Hurts and what's going on with this team, and then they just turn it on and they win by 14. It's weird. Eye test wise versus the stats and just looking at the standings and stuff. It's a team that doesn't seem like they have all their shit together. And yet it doesn't matter because they have so much talent. They can just kind of pick and choose. And then all of a sudden they win anyway. I know don't what other team in the NFL is like this. Do you see that too? Yeah, absolutely. And it's a bummer because I think you agree. The Dolphins are, I don't know, favorite team to watch if you have to cut everything else out. Best offense, so much going on, like dynamic, Tyreek Hill, anything. Tua. But when they play a game like this, when they go to Buffalo, they're just going to get beat in the trenches. And like what you said is it doesn't really matter if you're so physical, Philadelphia, offensively or defensively. And like Tua's getting swallowed up in the pocket on third and ones. And where Philadelphia could just run that tush push like it or not, it's going to move the chains every time. So, yeah, it sucks. Yeah. The less flashy team wins. And they happen to be in my favorite team's division. But that's what's going to happen in January. Ten turnovers for Hertz. He had eight off last year. There's times where, you know, like sometimes, and I don't know whether he's protecting his body or what's going on, but he'll kind of duck away from taking hits, which is smart. And then he'll have weird throws. And I texted Solak today during third quarter. I'm like, are we going to find out that Hertz has had like torn rib cartilage since week two or, you know, he doesn't look right sometimes. And then in the fourth quarter, all of a sudden looks great. And I don't really know what to make of it. And I can't get a feel for it. But on top of it, they have this tush push thing that in the big drive of the game, they're able to get two straight fourth and ones on their own side of the field. I know we, you and I have talked about it. You've talked about it incessantly. And at the same time, it feels like it is the most important NFL invention in the last five years, this play that nobody can stop ever at any point. If he does, nobody else can do it. I know it's weird. And we likened it to the Tom Brady thing. There was no reason why Tom Brady should convert fourth and one and a half every single time, you know, physically and everything else. But except they had their shit together, the Eagles, they really do. And if he does have cracked ribs, I hope it's from his own teammate, smashing them over the line of scrimmage there. Yeah, it was just wear and tear on the back of his body from several guys. Yeah. So they're performing the Heimlich on him like every eight minutes. So I guess if you're taking the takeaway from the Eagles is nice when they needed to have it, they're also supposed to win. But the AJ Brown piece of it, the fact that they traded, you know, a first round pick basically, and then they paid him. And I don't know, he's one of the four best receivers in the league now. Is he one of the three? He's somewhere on the shortest possible list. I have him on multiple fantasy teams, and it's gotten to the point where I'm just expecting 100 yards in a TD every game. But that turned out to be one of the better trades, I think, of the last 10 years. Just kind of took him from Tennessee. Oh, yeah. Yeah, that was ridiculous. And he is such a great possession receiver. And it's like, it's scary, too, because you'll forget about him, too. You probably put Justin Jefferson in the top three. And then every time Cousins drops back the pass or any snap, you're like, all right, this has to go to Jefferson. Otherwise, it's going to go for nothing out of this offense. And then eight tush pushes in a row. And then you see AJ Brown's like, oh, my God, I forgot about this guy. What? He's got 120 yards. It's nuts. So, yeah, dynamite. I like, yeah, there's like four different kind of catches he can make, too, which I think makes him stand out because they can throw those bubble screens. They can just put them right over the middle, like for seven, eight yards. It seems like whenever they want, they can send him deep down the sidelines, which he seems to love. And then that kind of deep over the middle with two guys on him and he can make plays anyway. But he he has, like, I think the biggest bag of any of the receivers right now. Yeah, personal. I don't know. I got these guys. Yeah. Yeah. I hate this team. I don't know. I don't even know what to say anymore. Like, you know, the Miami have what, 10 or 11 penalties? It's just like it's a it's like a mind fuck, too, when you play him, too, because you can't get out of a can't get out of your own way when you play against them. Kyle, don't turn on the tick tock camera for this. Has Philly replaced Boston for most interesting sports city? Like, look at all the shit they have going right now. Right. Right. They're they're about to make the World Series. They have this Eagles team that made the Super Bowl last year and it feels super relevant again, is definitely going to be a final 14 worst case scenario. And then they have this NBA team with this James Harden saga that God only knows how he's going to sabotage things over the next month. But and then you look at my team where my city where I have the the you know, we have a great NBA team, it looks like. And then other than that, completely forgettable across the board. I think Philly's kind of grabbed the mantle a little bit. I don't like it. I don't like it right now. That's not good. And it's not good for their fans because their fans are supposed to just hate the other team, not supposed to like their team. So it doesn't matter if their team is good. Right. Yeah, I don't know. It's a bummer. Although I'll say that they were in this position last year, too. Right. Phillies win the World Series. The Eagles win the Super Bowl. This has been this is the 2020s has kind of been the Philly decade. I don't like it. It's upsetting to me. And fortunately, the Sixers are it seems like they're going to go in the tank. But I got to say they have great crowds like the the Phillies playoff crowds are way up there. That's about as good of a baseball crowd as you're going to get. It really feels like if they can have like a do or die game or a must win game or a clincher at home, you feel like they're going to get it. And whatever happened with Bryce, you know, pretty special, like to sign that guy from another team and he becomes the signature athlete in your city. We had a little bit of that with Manny Ramirez, where we kind of took him from. We paid for it, but took him from Cleveland and he kind of became one of the symbols of that run. But pretty nuts that they just took him from another team and he became what he became. Yeah, it's a great crowd whenever they I mean, I thought the Rams crowd today was dynamite, too, against the Steelers. I thought they really showed up. It's really loud. Yeah, yeah, it's been proud to be from L .A. Yeah, I have a I know you don't want to talk about Phillies, so I'll move on. I have a Tyree question for you. What's your all time receiver list for receivers you've watched just where you're like, that guy's fucking amazing? Because for me, it was always Rice number one and Moss two and then a drop off. And then some people like Tio's three for me. I'm like, cool. Tio is like an absolute franchise murderer and was a huge head case and you couldn't trust him. And as the years pass, the stats will be great. All the fucking drama that he brought to every situation he's in, that stuff will kind of die off. But for me, I think Tyreek's unequivocally three now for me. Every single game, it just you just feel like he's going to have 250 yards as you're watching it, right? Yeah, I think so. Yeah. Unstoppable, Tyreek over Calvin Johnson, that type. Yeah, I think like where you would put him. Yeah, I think for me, he's definitely over Calvin Johnson. Michael Gallup is three, four. I'm trying to see where I would put these people. Yeah, I think you're right. I think you're right. I think he's got to be number three. Although if you look at like Antonio Brown, who's now a punch line, he had like six of the best seasons you'll ever see in a row. But but in terms of presence and being unstoppable, Rice, Moss, Tyreek Hill, it's a good three. That's how I feel. I think, you know, Sharp, I think, could have gotten there in the Packers way back when in the 90s. And then, you know, he hurt his neck and he basically only had like a six or seven year career. But I thought in the 90s, I thought other than Rice, he was the second best guy. Your guy, Irvin, was great. There's no question that team was loaded. We've had some good ones over the years, but Tyreek, the speed, how he just tilts the field over and over again, how scared the other team is of him. How much space he opens up for everybody else. I think he's three. I don't think he'll ever get over Moss or Rice for me, though. I'm trying to think who could pass him, though, now at three. I mean, we've put Justin Jefferson up there before. Now that we haven't seen him for a few weeks, we've kind of forgot about him in the right now. But Hill's done this now for, you know, six, what's it, six years since he's on the 18 Chiefs. I can't remember how many years he's been in the league, but yeah, he'll be stride for stride with two defenders. And then, like, if the ball hangs up there long enough, he's now seven, eight yards past them. Oh, I know who's number four. That's a nice little advantage. Pooka. He is? Guys, see that catch he made on the sideline today? It was pretty great. Before the Rams realized they were going against a force greater than any satanic force or anything, the Pittsburgh Steelers. You want to talk about that? Yeah, let's do it. Let's do it. So they're four and two. I've watched every play of all six games. I have no idea how they're four and two, but they've hit the point now where I feel like they're going to win when there's no signs. Like that guy missed the extra point today for the Rams and made it nine, three instead of 10, three. I'm like, oh, here we go. Steelers come down. All of a sudden it's 10, nine. They have five first downs because they get the TJ Watt, you know, the pick that sets up the touchdown. And you're just like, here we go. They're doing this. And we've seen this before because this was the Eli Manning. Danny Heifetz was the first person to point this out. This was the Eli Manning recipe for years and years that I can't believe that team's winning. What the fuck just happened? He only made two throws. How did he do it? They're four and two. I totally believe in them. And I feel like they're going to go 12 and five and have a negative point differential. Well, the good thing is we're making money off them, right? We've been and we saw them. Plus, I mean, I thought they'd be favored last Sunday night. I thought they'd be favored, but they're not. So we're doing that thing, but also just taking them because the Steelers. But I found the gem and I gave it out on ringer wise guys, Rams first half Steelers to win the game 10 to one. You know, I'm positive that their bullshit is going to pay dividends and 10 to one. I think it'll hit like three more times. Like you're right. That TJ Watt interception brings it down to the eight. We see some separation from Pickens on a receipt, like the little one drive you wait for all game and it happens. And then that terrible spot at the end, it didn't give him a chance. That that was beyond really big. McVeigh also probably should have had a timeout left. I know. But, you know, what is it important to be like, hey, listen, we could get this right, but we'd rather teach you a lesson, coach, to save your timeouts. Like, I don't, this, the spot thing bothers me more than missed pass interferences because it's an old man jogging eight yards and he has to see between 20 bodies. And then like, you know, he sticks his foot in the mud and says, here, this is like a surveyor from 1835. He's like, this is where your property in, sir. Like we got to put, there's a chip in the ball. Isn't there a chip in the ball? What's it for? It's funny that we figured out Wimbledon. We figured out we've in U .S. Open, we figured out how to measure serves immediately, whether they hit the line or not in football, which seems like it would be really easy to just have some sort of magnet that was attached to the chains. The other thing that was weird about that for the people who didn't see it, the Steelers did fourth and one, they had the lead. There's probably like a little more than two minutes left and they run the QB sneak play, kind of the Brady play where you, you kind of put your head down, but you go left. But he slipped and fell on his knee and his knee went down. And it wasn't one of those when you're watching it where you're like, oh, I wonder if he got it was like, you knew immediately, oh, he didn't get it. He slipped. And then they come in with the spot and then like, oh, he might have gotten it. And they did that. I couldn't believe it. And I'm rooting for the Steelers. But I was like, oh, my God, it's the worst spot of the year. I thought they deserved to win anyway. But but that was pretty tough for the Rams. We need some clarification. And I get it because McVeigh didn't have timeouts and it wasn't actually the two minute warning yet, even though it did wind to that after that. But is there a ref in the sky? Is there this guy in the sky or is this everything has to go back to New York? Like, I feel like we're told three different things. It's a bummer because that could have been overturned. But you're right. Ten to one we hit. Let's just keep doing it. You know, you know who else would have gotten that fourth one? Eli Manning. He would have fallen down a half foot in front and somehow would have gotten the spot. The Rams kicker was the MVP of this game for the Steelers. He missed two longer field goals. They were like 50 yard field goals, but he missed about them. Then he missed that extra point. And then Tomlin just, you know, he threw away the challenge. He screwed up a challenge, which is the Tomlin staple.

"Welcome to Oregon Rooted. I'm Higher Peaks and this is Lady Sativa. You're listening to The Dirt Show, where we bring you Oregon's cannabis culture. Oh, I was just going to ask you, like you said, I think you said your spouse some had medical things or something that was helped with mushrooms or whatnot. Yeah, yeah. She has actually been on antidepressants for like 20 -some years, got put on them a long time ago. You know, it's one of those things where it's like, oh, this will help for a little bit. And then, of course, just no one ever really came up with a plan for her to get off of them, you know, 20 -some years later. It's not easy to come off of those things. And so, she is actually back on a lower dose of them now. Last year, she got to the point where with the microdosing, that microdosing helped as far as helping to subside the side effects of when you're lowering the doses. But she got to a point where when she did go off of them completely and she got admittedly kind of antsy towards the end and didn't do the last few weans of lowering that you probably should have. And she was like, okay, your willpower, I'm just done, you know. And it seemed to work great for a minute, a week or two or something. And then, it all kind of went downhill for her real quick with that. And I think just, you know, 20 -some years of those, you know, it affects her, which is actually an SSNRI. So, it affects your norepinephrine and your serotonin reuptake. And so, with that, it was just, you know, 20 years of that working in her and then not having it. It just kind of set everything kind of haywire. And she went into a real, real deep depression from that. And after, you know, a couple of months of trying to just like wait it out basically, it wasn't getting any better. And so, she went back on a low dose. And the unfortunate thing at that point was when she first started it, she didn't have any of the side effects of going on it like a lot of people do. But this time, she had all of them. So, that was like just an unfortunate situation, you know, a big eye -opener really to just how powerful a lot of, you know, those pharmaceuticals are even though we knew it. But, you know, they really, they get a hold on you sometimes and it changes how your whole brain is functioning. And it's a long, long process to do that, to get off of it for a lot of people.

"Fish on! Hey, Radcast is on! And welcome to the show, Mr. Jim Zumbo. Gentlemen, I am pleased to be here and I use that term loosely when I say gentlemen. Al Winder. Just want to welcome you to the show. Thanks for taking time out of your busy schedule to hang out with us on a podcast for a little bit. Hey, I'm looking forward to it. Nothing makes me happier than you'd be talking about. Hailing from Wisconsin, Janna Walling. Thanks so much for having me. It's Radcast. Hunting, fishing, and everything in between. Powered by Bowspider. Brought to you by PK Lures and High Mountain Seasonings. And now, here's your hosts, Patrick Edwards and David Merrill. Good day to everyone. Hello and welcome to the show. We're back, Radcast Outdoors in the indoors talking about the great outdoors. The fall is in full swing. I've definitely been out and about. I know Patrick will be missed on this episode today. His chair is here. We're wishing he was here. Wish him all the best. He's out doing Patrick's stuff. And I've been out doing David's stuff, which includes Alaska, Idaho, Oregon, Wyoming. Got to punch one tag. You guys can go check out the social media, Bowspider. Had a phenomenal 16 days in the woods and it was well earned. Some people say must be nice as far as getting to disappear into the woods for most of September. I also disappeared into the work trade show schedule starting in November and didn't quit until August. Here's trade -offs. I got a great supporting family and wife and spouse that allowed me to be gone all year working so I can turn around and be gone all fall hunting. Never did truly find the monster bull elk or monster buck I was looking for. Found a good enough buck to hang a tag on. Messed up on a big herd bull. I'll give you guys the story real quick. We were sleeping in teepee, wood stove, titanium. Amazing on those cold mornings to start a little fire and get dressed in 90 degree beautiful heat versus 32 degree frosty mornings. Listen to bulls bugle all night that night within 50 or 100 yards of the teepee. Honestly, we could have put it somewhere different, but we had stock with us. So trying to camp on water when you're that high elevation is difficult. Anyways, there was one bull just wouldn't quit about 300 yards from camp. I snuck over there and I had a choice to go right or left. There was two small trees and I'm looking down kind of a ridge ravine into a small basin, Aspen rolly basin. There's no more than 200 yards visibility every direction, but it's a beautiful little timbered ridge that drops into this little Aspen meadow and I'm working the edge and I come to these two bushes and there's a dead tree on the right hand side and then the trail goes straight down into the open meadow. So I decided to stay in the little bit of cover. I stepped up on that dead tree cause it was a wide forked tree with a bunch of branches so I couldn't step between it. As I stepped up on there, I skylined and at 28 yards was a few cows and at 52 was the bull and some more cows and he was 3 .30, 3 .40. I would have been happy. So needless to say, they all exploded and ran away. We called in a couple of rag horns.

Just want to welcome you to the show. Thanks for taking time out of your busy schedule to hang out with us on a podcast for a little bit. I am looking forward to it.

Powered by Bowspider. Brought to you by PK Lures and High Mountain Seasonings. And now here's your hosts, Patrick Edwards and David Merrill. Today is a very special episode of Radcast Outdoors because we've kicked the guys out of the studio. We are the wives of the Radcast Outdoors hosts. I am Crystal Merrill. And I'm Krista Edwards. And we are here because we're going to talk about what it's like to be married to someone who is quite literally obsessed with the great outdoors. So the guys are definitely in trouble. Yeah, that's right. We are going to have a good time. We're good. We kicked them out. No boys allowed. And just dive into what it's like to be married and have kids with an outdoors enthusiast. That's obsessed. Yeah. As we know, our husbands love hunting and fishing. David is a hunter and Patrick is a little bit more of a fisherman. So tell me about your experience in the outdoors, Krista. So I was raised down in Cheyenne, Wyoming, and I was my dad's fishing buddy as a kid. We would go fishing just at the lakes that are close by. So the Curt Gowdy State Park lakes, he would take us trout fishing. And then as I got a little older, we would go camping with my grandparents on their pop -up camper trailer. I love doing that. My grandpa, I remember, took us to Hog Park and the Miracle Mile and we got to do some fishing there. I've always liked being outside. I've never been an enthusiast of any sorts or anything, but I've always enjoyed being outside hunting, just outdoor recreational activities as well. How about you? I have the same experience as a kid. I was immersed in the outdoors. My dad was a trapper and a hunter and a little bit of a fish or two. There's a picture that exists of me in a diaper standing in front of a bunch of skinned raccoons in Oregon. That does exist. But when I was a teenager, shot my first black tail deer in Oregon, which is where I grew up. And then in 2009, my dad invited me over here to Wyoming, which is now where I live and love, to an antelope hunt out here in the middle of near Riverton, Wyoming. We got a nice antelope. My husband and I, David, we both shot antelope that time. And then we decided to go explore our lives and travel around a little bit. But eventually we did end up back here in Wyoming. Awesome. What do you love about Wyoming? Except for last year? I love the climate. Yeah, that was brutal. The negative 50s was a little bit much last winter. But I love the open wide open spaces. I love the people how friendly they are and just kind and wholesome and morals. I just love the people here. Yeah, I agree. I have really just grown to love Wyoming. I love the mountains. I love all the outdoor recreational opportunities. I love that you can make close relationships because our biggest towns are still small ones. So it's a small world. I don't ever imagine living anywhere else. We love Wyoming. How about you tell me how you met David and how your relationship came to be? We both grew up in Oregon. We actually met in the Cascade Mountains of Oregon. I was a Forest Protection Officer working for the Forest Service. And there's this little mountain house store in the middle of nowhere. And so I would stop in there and I'd get like candy or soda or something on my way. And David was actually a cook there and friends with the owners. He didn't have enough gump to introduce himself to me. So the owner of the store, because David and I were like 17 and 19. When we met, the owner of the store forcibly introduced us and basically told us we were going on a date. And so I think the next day I drove up to the mountain house after work and we watched a movie and talked all night. And that's the history of David and Crystal. The rest is history as they say, right? How about you guys? How did you and Patrick meet? I think we met a couple of times before we actually I don't know. Patrick says that we've met we had met previously, but we actually graduated high school together. We're in the same graduating class. I have vague memories of him there. But we officially started we're introduced by a mutual friend when we were in college down in Cheyenne at the community college down there. One of the new weeks of school, he was standing in line waiting for food. And we because we had been introduced, we started a conversation. He let me cut in line with him for food. We had lunch that day and just started talking and getting to know each other. And like he said, rest is history. We were also young. We were both 19 when we started dating when we first met. We've been married 17 years now. And we have four children, which Patrick has mentioned on the podcast before. Leah, our faith, who is 10. And Benjamin, who is nine, I have to think about that sometimes because they're, they stair step down. How about you? How long have you and David been married? So we've been married 17 years as well. We both I think we both got married in 2006. Didn't we? Yep. Okay. So yeah, we got married in 2006 in Oregon. And yeah, that's the rest of history. So when you first met Patrick, did you really know how obsessed he was with fishing? Because we lived in Cheyenne, I don't know what his passion was when it came to fishing. The opportunities in the Cheyenne area are much less than it is up here in Riverton. And his grandma lived in Riverton. And so when we were first dating, he would come up and visit her, but I didn't always come. So he would fish when he came up here. And then when I would come and visit, we would go fishing. But because it was so sporadic, I didn't realize just what the full depth of the obsession of the hobby, the passion was at that time. So no, I didn't realize when we were married for a few years in 2008, we moved up to Riverton for the first time to help with with his grandma and to help care for her. And it was then a couple years into our marriage that I fully got a full view of how much he really loved it because he had the proximity of Boysen and the ability to go more often. So those I would consider some of our harder years of marriage as we were figuring this out being newlyweds, and also him having these opportunities to go and fish and want to do both be a good husband and stay home but also pursue his hobbies and his passion. So it was then that I really got a full grasp on that. What have you done throughout the years as you've adjusted to being married and realizing how much he loves fishing? What do you guys do together? Do you guys go fishing together a lot now? Is it a family thing? What's the favorite part of being a wife of a husband who just loves the outdoors and has a passion for it? In the beginning, before we had kids, I would go fishing with him sometimes. I will say when we first were married, and I realized that it was difficult, it did create some fights. And we have some fights early on that are in the history books that we can laugh about now today. But as our family has grown when we had kids, it was a great way for us to get outside as a family. And he loves sharing his passion of fishing with children, whether it's our own or anybody else's, he loves teaching people how to fish. So it's been really awesome to see him share that with our family. So we do go as a family and sometimes I don't even fish. I'm just there as referee, making sure that kids aren't dangling up their lines, or I'm helping them pull them out of the water. So bait the hook. Yeah. So he's able to go on a date nights where I just go with him. It's not my passion. I don't mind doing it. I like doing it. But I mainly like spending the time with him. It's really fun to be able to go do something with him that he enjoys so much. And I know that it fills his bucket fills his love tank, whatever you want to call it to be able to do something he enjoys, and to be able to share that with me and with our children. So we do as a family, sometimes it actually has worked out now that our kids are older, that he'll take a couple and leave a couple home with me and he'll take a couple and so that's actually been a really special thing. It gives him the opportunity to spend one on one time or two on one time with with our kids when you have a big family. Sometimes that gets hard with busy schedules and stuff. I don't always go but I've got to a point now in our marriage where I am supportive of him going. I'm to the point now where I recognize the need for him to go when life has been really crazy and he's been really busy or things that work have been really stressful. I can see it and I will encourage him to go where in our early years of marriage when it was just the two of us and we didn't have kids that would not have been the case. I did not want him to go and leave me home alone. But now I say, I see that there's, you're stressed, you should go for half a day or whatever. Because I know that it just helps to renew him and refresh him. And then when he comes home, he's just able to be more present and attentive to our family. And he's just more at peace. So gotta be the support system for the family. And that doesn't mean you always go on these trips. But it looks different. Maybe it means that you cook the fish that he brings home for all the things for the with fish. I cook don't get me wrong. I do cook but he cooks and cleans. There is a learning curve when it comes to cooking fish. We like to cook together. And but he just is really good at fish specifically. I've done a few things and we usually do it together. But yeah, no, when it comes to fishing, he likes doing it all. He loves the catching. He I don't know if he loves the cleaning, but he does the cleaning and then he helps the cooking as well. It's, it's been great. It's been a great way to enjoy it as a family. How about you do fish or hunt with David? Do you guys so we do as a family? Yeah, we do a little bit of everything. Since I've had kids, I have three kids, the youngest is nine months. And so I don't get out as much as I would like. A couple of years ago, we ended up going over by Cody and I got an elk tag and actually harvested a very nice bowl, my first bull elk ever. We dropped the kids off with grandma and we went over there in the winter and harvested a nice bowl. It was awesome. It was nice to get away and do the things as a couple. Now that we have a bigger family, and it's a little bit harder to get out, get everybody ready. Because as a mom, we know that we get everybody ready, we get all the snacks, we get all the clothes, warm and hot and clothes and everything you need to get ready for a trip. It's a lot. It takes a lot more time to prep and prepare. And it's just a lot of effort when you have the kids. But as far as hunting and fishing, I really do enjoy the time. It brings me closer to God. Honestly, the silence, getting away from all the electronics, just the peace of being out in nature is awesome. And I would love to do it more. But I just have to wait till my kids get a little bit older to make it a little easier on everybody. Right. Absolutely. I feel that connection with the Lord as well being out in nature. And then also, just with my husband, the connection there. I don't know how David is. But I can tell you, like when when I went fishing with Patrick, just the two of us, we went a couple of years ago to Keyhole for an anniversary trip. And he was more excited to see me catch fish than than him catching fish. He was going for a trophy. And sometimes I would just read a book while he was trying. But when we started catching crappie and stuff, he would get so excited. And I imagine David's reaction to you getting a big elk was probably the same. And it's just a really special connection that you can have when they they share their love for that. And then it makes when they see somebody that they love, yes, pursuing what they let's just it. It's a cool way to bond. Yes, it is. I will agree. He was actually there with me when I shot my first black tail deer to we were tree stand hunting behind my house and I was climbing up in the tree and he was going to climb up behind me but the deer is already there. Oh, I know eating some apples from the orchard. And so he's standing down there at the bottom of the tree. And of course, I was waiting to get a good rest. I wasn't going to make a poor shot on my first year. I was very patient. The deal wasn't going anywhere. I had plenty of apples. So I was taking my time to get a good shot made a great shot. It was awesome experience for us to just instill that as a new couple and I wish that more couples would get out and do these things together even if you don't necessarily enjoy the sport. Just supporting your spouse. It's a great way to support your spouse just going, doing whatever you can to support them in their passions. Absolutely. When we were dating, it used to be the joke that I would always outfish Patrick whenever we would go fishing when we were dating and first married and I would tease that's why he didn't take me because I would always outfish him. But the real reason why I'd outfish him is because he would set me up in order to catch catch fish. I know this now. Yeah, back then I would tease that I had better skill. I meant that I was doing a better job. But really, he lovingly set me up in a way that I would I'm gonna give you a better lure or a better bait. Yeah, whatever. Yeah. In order for me to have success because then you have fun doing it together like that. Do you have any specific outdoor memories of your family from your childhood or any memories that are your favorite from being in the outdoors with your family? From my growing up years, one of my favorite outdoor memories was a camping trip that I went on with my grandparents and my uncle. My mom is 17 years older than her youngest brother. So my uncle is only like eight years older than I am. We got to do things with him similar to what you would with like a cousin because of the age difference there. We went and I believe it was down by Miracle Mile in a hog park and camped outside. I'd never slept outside open air, no tent, no camper. And he rolled out the sleeping bag like he was going to sleep outside. And I thought that was the coolest thing. So I slept outside open air next to the lake that we were at with my uncle. And so that was really special. I probably was 11 or 12. I don't even remember how old I was. But it's still a memory that sticks with me. And you didn't get carried away by the mosquitoes. Not that I remember. And I remember that was my first wallet I had ever caught. It was on that trip. I had never caught a wallet before. So that was really cool. And then my family. Oh, so many memories as a family with kids now with Patrick and our family, our younger kids. But one of them that I really love was our first camping trip after Katie was born. So Katie's my second. And Leah would have been a year and a half, two years old. Katie was five weeks old, sitting in a tent, nursing my five week old baby while camping. And this trip was so hectic. We got lost on our way. When we got to the lake, Patrick started catching fish immediately. It was like some of the best fishing he'd ever been to. We went to, I can't remember what it's called, a lake in Nebraska. And when we woke up the next day, we camped one whole night, the whole tent set up, the stress of we had to go home. So it was like less than a 24 hour trip. It was so stressful. And looking on it now, it's not a favorite. If you think, that was a wreck. We were a mess. But at the same time, it was just the beginning of we're just going to go no matter how hard this is, we're going to try anyways. And so that was a jumping off point for us on just family camping trips. And we've done many more, always having good parts and always having stressful parts like using the set up, the extra packing with kids and whatnot. So sleeping out under the stars really reminds me of a funny story from David and I when we were first dating, I was, you know, working for the Forest Service. So I was supposed to know all these different trails and everything and be able to read a map. Well, Crystal forgot the map, we were going to go to Danica Lake in Oregon. It's beautiful. I've been there. I hiked in there for my work. And I was going to take David in there, we're going to go fishing. It took a wrong turn on the trail. And we ended up not going into the wilderness, but staying near like a logging trail. And we came out to a place where I knew I was familiar with it was, we had hiked probably 10 miles that day, Danica Lake was not a 10 mile hike. And we get to a place and we just go to a lake that's right off of the road. It's a gravel road, but it's right off the road. And we were just gonna sleep out underneath the stars, we put a tarp down, had our sleeping bags, and we went to sleep woke up the next morning. And David says, I hear something scratching. Oh my goodness. So we look around us. And because we laid out our stuff almost in dark, we laid our tarp down on top of an ants nests or high ant flow area. And they weren't the small ants. These are the big ants. So he now has an ant in his ear. And we are probably two hours from any hospital or anything. Oh my goodness is before I'm a nurse. So I didn't know what to do. I've never had this encounter before. So we were, he was freaking out because something was in his head, scratching. And he's not a calm person around this kind of things. Anyways, I come up with this idea to drop some water into his ear to flood the ant out. And luckily it worked. But to this day, I will never live down the fact that we never made it to Danica Lake. Oh, you never went back? Never made it. Oh, bummer. So it's always this story of if Crystal plans a trip, are we really gonna make it to Danica Lake? Or are we gonna make it somewhere else? You just never know. And then as far as outdoor stories with my family, one of my favorite memories is when I harvested a moose here in Wyoming in 2017. We didn't know the area. So we were just hiking around and we came across a bull moose that was shootable. And the awesome thing was, my oldest son Hunter was probably three or four at the time. And he was on the shoulders of David. David was carrying him when I shot my moose. Oh, cool. So we had this experience together. My father in law was there too. We shot this moose and my son was able to be a part of that experience. And not that he is super enthusiastic about hunting yet. He's 10. And so he's interested in video games and other things like that. But it's a great family memory for us to remember. And then with my middle child, Drake, my dad took me out around Riverton to get an antelope and antelope buck because I for some reason when we first moved here, I drew antelope buck tags almost every year. Nice. Nobody else did. I don't know. So I got to spend that time with the Drake as well when I was harvesting that antelope buck and there's pictures of him sitting on my lap with the antelope and we harvested it together. We butchered it together at home. We do actually most of our own butchering and processing of our meats. That's great. And I think Patrick does the same, doesn't he? With his fish and whatever. Absolutely. Yeah. And the kids, it's a great way to teach them. It's one of those things that kind of get lost in our culture. I feel like today where a lot of kids and I'm not saying necessarily Wyoming kids because we live in a state where it's a little unique, but a lot of times kids don't know where their food comes from. And so whether it is game, wild game and fish, or it's things like poultry and pork and beef, we both have chickens on our properties and we raise pigs. And I know that you guys have done so in the past before. It's just such a good experience for kids to see the whole process. It's not just I went to the store and bought the ass. We went, when you hunt, you harvest it as well as bring it home, clean it, cook it, and then eat it. Same when you raise your own animals or eggs or whatever. It's just good for kids to know that it's not just go to the grocery store, that there is work involved, that it's not actually that easy. And it just brings a greater appreciation for your food as well as for the people who do, our farmers and our ranchers, who raise the food that we eat. And the quality of your food. Absolutely. That's what I love about processing my own game is you can be super fine with how you butcher it. You can be selective with the meats and you can, we do a lot of hamburger. It's not hamburger, it's elk burger, venison burger. Right. We treat it like hamburger and it tastes delicious and we love it and my kids love it and all of these different recipes that we have that we use with wild game because it cooks differently. Absolutely. You can't just cook elk like you can a normal beef steak. It takes a little more love and tenderness for sure. So talking about our kids and getting them involved. So you have three boys, 10, four and nine months, right? Yes. So with your kids, what have you found to be ways to get them outdoors? Because it is extra work, you do have to prepare. You're not just thinking about going to and hunting or going to the lake and fishing. You have to think about all their needs and all the things that you might need for the day to keep them occupied or whatever. So what kinds of tips and things have you found that help? And then also, how have you been motivated to make sure you get your kids outdoors because it is extra work? So how have you motivated yourself to continue doing the work to get them there? So some of the things that I have found that works for my kids to keep them, for lack of a better word, entertained during hunting because it's not always entertaining. They can play with sticks and rocks but they do eventually get bored and then they do eventually get hungry and or cold or hot. So you have to plan for those things because you want for kids the experience to be a positive one. You don't want them to look back and say, oh, I was so cold or I was so hungry and mom and dad didn't have any snacks for me. So you got to plan for those things. Sometimes you do better than others. As far as what I do to the effort, it is important to put that effort out. Yes, it is time consuming but I know it's good for their soul. It's good for my soul to get out even if we just go to Ocean Lake or Morton Lake for the evening and go fishing. It's beautiful to get sit on the beach, listen to the waves come in. It's therapeutic for everybody and it helps everybody's mental health. We just love taking those opportunities to do those small things and I know you do the same thing with your family as well. We do and I always tease that I could be talked out of it every single time. Easily. Yes, especially like the first camping trip of the year when you have to get the camper cleaned and prepped and make sure your supplies are there. Every time we're getting ready to go camping for the first time, I always think we don't have to do this. We can stay home of effort. So much work and so I say that about every trip. You could tell me and say, would you rather stay home? I'd probably say yes to you on a heartbeat. So don't offer that as an option because otherwise I'll probably take you up on it. It's worth it once you get there. You take all the time to prepare the food and to pack all the clothes and to clean up and get the dogs ready and whatever else it is that you need to do in order to get yourselves there. But once you're there and you're set up and you're in nature and you're able to not worry about all the at -home chores and busyness and schedule and you're just able to soak in whatever it might be, it's so worth it. So it's worth the time. It's worth the effort and start. My tip would be to start young. Don't wait till your kids are old enough to hold the fishing pole or do whatever because if you just make it part of your lifestyle to just go and do and be together as a family, then it will get to a point where your kids will look forward to those times. One of the things I also tease about like where people say camping is relaxing and I'm like you have never gone camping with kids. However, we, my family doesn't have little kids anymore. You guys still have a few, a toddler and a baby. But when we got went camping a couple years ago and our kids range from ages 11 to seven and we were able to go and Pat would go fishing and I got to sit in my chair and talk to my friends or read a book and my kids were running around and playing with their friends and and they were all over the place night. I looked at it and I go, oh we've arrived.

"And then running the swabs from that and, you know, and if it takes, it takes and great. And then do it again. And if it doesn't take, go back and clone again. And for me, that's just following that method has seemed to be pretty successful. I haven't had, you know, of course, different morphologies and different phenotypes pop up once you start running things for multiple generations. But I haven't had that I know of anything that's like completely just like reverted back to something else or, you know, gone completely haywire. Now, I've also noticed that your thanks for the info on that, too, by the way, it's something that I'm not. I've been doing it for about a year and a half, but I still feel like I'm just starting on day one. You know, I don't feel like I have, you know, anywhere near the knowledge like, say, you do or say a lot of these guys out there that are ultra serious about it. So I'm still learning. But I also noticed that your bank is growing, like which everybody does. It seems like if you're really into it, your bank starts to grow and you're like, oh, but you don't seem to be going, huh, you seem to keep just making the bank bigger. Now, I know that feeling and I know why I would I do that. But, you know, what do you feel about that? I mean, it seems like every every new culture is a whole like leg of exponential work that, you know, is coming into play. Absolutely. Yeah. And no, for sure, they each one could be taken. I mean, you could literally spend, I'm sure, a whole lifetime like working one strain and, you know, grabbing different phenotypes, swabbing those, seeing what you can get. And for a lot of, you know, what I consider like other people's, you know, creations and things like, you know, that they've already stabilized and done whatever. I like getting them just because I like running all of them. For me, I like seeing the different stuff and, you know, certain ones, then you run or at least for me, I run them. And if then I happen to see something in one that I just really like and feel like it would fit really well with another, that's when I get really interested in crossing them. And so that's part of the reason I like keeping them around. And also, like I said, too, just because of the that seems to be what a lot of people really like about getting genetics from me is because I have such a variety that they can keep coming back and grab some different ones. And what I was getting at, too, with other people's works and stuff, I try to I run them, but I try to always clone and run those as if I'm running them to keep them the same as what I've seen them stabilized as. So if I get, you know, Wombat Tat, I'm not going to try to, you know, run off and turn that into some, you know, Shakti Blueguild monster. Like I'm going to try to keep running it like Wombat Tat because that's what it's great as. You know, someone else who wants to work that variety, absolutely. Grab whatever phenotypes, grab all the morphologies and run them all, you know. But for me, I just try to keep those ones solid and also by running them and cloning them and running spores from them, it keeps them strong, too. So that when people get the cultures from me, they're not just some culture that I obtained and threw in the fridge and then I'm grabbing samples from every, you know, once in a while when someone wants one, I try to keep them all fresh. And for me, like I said, I like running them, too, just because I enjoy all the different ones. They're just they're they're all so cool to me. And each one is different in its own way. And it's just it's you know, I don't know. No, I get it. I get it. You're in a tall moon, man.

"Welcome to Oregon Rooted. I'm Higher Peaks and this is Lady Sativa. You're listening to The Dirt Show, where we bring you Oregon's cannabis culture. Yeah, once again, thanks for having me on. Welcome to Oregon. Pleasure to be here. I'm Jeff. My company is The Fungus Frequency and I started that about a year ago or so. I've been growing for just a few years now. Kind of jumped in head first, like a lot of people do. It started out for me, a lot of it was the therapy side of everything. It was actually with my wife. I was dealing with antidepressants and things like that and the microdosing was very key for helping her start to wean off of some of that and not have to deal with some of the side effects. That what was kind of really made me jump into the actual growing of it because it was like, well, if this is really something helping, I want to make sure this is readily available and I know the quality. I know exactly what's going on with it. And make sure that that was going to be something consistent, not kind of leave her in a spot where it could be, oh, well, I don't have this that's really helping. That's where the whole growing kind of really took off for me. Obviously, I was curious about it. Just from a mental and health aspect and everything, I've always been drawn to that kind of stuff. Ever since a lot of people dabbled with some of the psychedelics as a teenager and had some fun experiences with mushrooms and stuff, I did always find that with the mushrooms, I'd always come out of it with a real good epiphany. It would be something that just kind of came out of left field for me, but I'd always have some real good thoughts afterwards and then towards the end and stuff like that, even if I was just having fun the whole time. So there's always something there. And then for years, I don't know, it just fell off all that and kind of fell into probably over 10 years of a lot of drinking. And that was just kind of where I ended up for quite a while. And as hitting the late teens, early 20s, getting into it, it was fun and everything. And then years into it, it's like, wow, this has become quite a habit here. And at the same time, it was so socially acceptable that it was easy to kind of go, it's OK, and try to convince myself it was when I knew it really wasn't great for me.

In this moment of tragedy, I want to say to them and to the world and to terrorists everywhere that the United States stands with Israel. We will not ever fail to have their back. Biden spoke in front of reporters at the White House today after Hamas's surprise attack on Israel, killing at least 100 people and injuring over 1100. The president was visibly angry when he spoke of civilians who were killed and entire families that were taken captive by Hamas. Biden said there is never justification for terrorist attacks and Israel has a right to defend itself and its people. He also had a stern warning against any party hostile to Israel wanting to exploit the attacks for their own benefit.

A highlight from Sean Feucht
"Hey, folks, welcome to the program and to what I like to call Monday. And it's Miracle Monday because it's a miracle we were finally able to get our schedules aligned with our dear friend, Sean Foyt. Sean, welcome back to this program. I like your hat. Thanks. Good to be here. It says, make holiness great again. Yeah. Awesome message. You know, people often say to me that, Eric, I don't know how you do it. You travel, you travel, you're everywhere. I'm doing nothing compared to you. You're significantly younger than I am, but you're bouncing around. You've got a family. In fact, I think you've got several families. You've got a few in different states and stuff, but you honestly, you travel basically nonstop. So a lot has been happening with you, and I want to talk about any of it that you have time to talk about because you're dealing with what we Christians call spiritual warfare, and it's real. It's not something we've invented, but talk about some of the stuff you've been seeing lately because it's unbelievable. Yeah. I mean, well, it's funny because I just got an email actually just now from our production guy, one of our production guys that does all of our, you know, helping us with our sound and our lights and all of our stuff for venues, and Antifa has been using these hidden emails to attack his servers to get all the information on what we spend on all of our events. This is like a normal day, right? And so his team tracked back the emails, and they tracked back to a psychic and Wiccan facility in Portland, Oregon. So anyway, I share that with you because it's true. We are living in a spiritual war. And yesterday I went on live news to talk about this Knott's Berry Farm issue and how this that's place an amusement park that my kids have gone to in Southern California for Halloween this year. They're doing a demonic bondage strip show with I mean, it's pornographic. It's insane. It's they're letting all ages into it. And this is the same location that hosted a love song from the Jesus People movement back in the 70s and 80s. It's the location that hosted revivals. And now it's been let's be clear, Knott's Berry Farms. Now, when I hear that, I kind of think, oh, that's kind of Americana. Yeah, telling me. And again, I say this on this program and everywhere I go, folks, you need to wake up to where we are. This is literally satanic. Knott's Berry Farms is doing something openly evil, as openly evil as you can imagine. It would be like the fever dream of somebody from from 30 years ago, like this is going to happen in the satanic future. And you'd say like, yeah, you're nuts. But Sean, you're telling me that they're doing this. Knott's Berry Farms is why would they do something as openly sick? It's so sick. It's almost unbelievable. Yeah, I mean, it's it's the full on assault on the next generation. I mean, the enemy always, always picks the most vulnerable. You know, he always attacks the weakest. And that's our kids. And of course, you know, I'm passionate about this because I got four kids, ages 13, 11, nine and five. I just finished a book on boldness for teens and preteens like it would basically be my field manual to my own kids for how to how to grow up in this atmosphere and culture. But I think what we're seeing and, you know, the acceleration of the elections, the political climate, the the sexual perversion on overload, the demonic. I mean, this this what's happening in Knott's Berry Farm makes the Sam Smith Grammy show look like child's play. I mean, it is so absolutely grotesque and disgusting. And yet it's happening right down the road, like from where I live. And so anyway, just referencing the spiritual war climate, it's true. It's what we're living in right now. We have to open our eyes. We have to put on the full armor of God. You know, we have to literally return back to the reality that we're facing this every day. And it's only going to increase as we approach next year and the general election. I mean, it's it's it's insane.
A highlight from IDL84 Part 3 Chapter 40 Introduction to the Devout Life by St. Francis de Sales Discerning Hearts Podcast
"Part 3 Chapter 40 of the Introduction to the Devout Life by St. Francis de Sales. This is a Discerning Hearts recording read by Corey Webb. Chapter 40 Councils to Widows Saint Paul teaches us all in the person of Saint Timothy when he says, Honor widows that are widows indeed. Now to be a widow indeed it is necessary, one, that the widow be not in body only but in heart also. That is to say, that she be fixed in an unalterable resolution to continue in her widowhood. Those widows who are but waiting the opportunity of marrying again are only widowed in externals, while in, will they have already laid aside their loneliness. If the widow indeed chooses to confirm her widowhood, by offering herself by a vow to God, she will adorn that widowhood, and make her resolution doubly sure. For the remembrance that she cannot break her vow without danger of forfeiting paradise, will make her so watchful over herself, that a great barrier will be raised against all kind of temptation that may assail her. Saint Augustine strongly recommends Christian widows to take this vow, and the learned Oregon goes yet further. For he advises married women to take a vow of chastity in the event of losing their husbands, so that amid the joys of married life they may yet have a share in the merits of a chaste widowhood. Vows render the actions performed under their shelter more acceptable to God, strengthen us to perform good works and help us to devote Him, not merely those good works which are, so to say, the fruits of a holy will, but to consecrate that will itself, the source of all we do, to Him. By ordinary chastity we offer our body to God, retaining the power to return to sensual pleasure, but the vow of chastity is an absolute and irrevocable gift to Him, without any power to recall it, thereby making ourselves the happy slaves of Him, whose service is to be preferred to royal power. And as I greatly approve the counsels of the two venerable fathers I have named, I would have such persons as are so favored, as to wish to embrace them, do so prudently, and in a holy steadfast spirit, after careful examination of their own courage, having asked heavenly guidance, and taken the advice of some discreet and pious director, and then all will be profitably done. Two, further all such renunciation of second marriage must be done with a single heart, in order to fix the affections more entirely on God, and to seek a more complete union with Him. For if the widow retains her widowhood merely to enrich her children, or for any other worldly motive, she may receive the praise of men, but not that of God, inasmuch as nothing is worthy of his approbation, save that which is done for his sake. Moreover, she who would be a widow indeed must be voluntarily cut off from all worldly delights. She that lives in pleasure is dead while she lives, Saint Paul says. A widow who seeks to be admired and followed and flattered, who frequently balls in parties, who takes pleasure in dressing, perfuming, and adorning herself, may be a widow in the body, but she is dead as to the soul. What does it matter, I pray you, whether the flag of Adonis and his profane love be made of white feathers or a net of crepe? Nay, sometimes there is a conscious vanity, in that black is the most becoming dress, and she who thereby endeavors to captivate men, and who lives in empty pleasure, is dead while she lives, and is a mere mockery of widowhood. The time of retrenchment is come, the voice of the turtle is heard in our land. Retrenchment of worldly superfluity is required of whosoever would lead a devout life, but above all, it is needful for the widow indeed, who mourns the loss of her husband like a true turtledove. When Naomi returned from Moab to Bethlehem, those that had known her in her earlier and brighter days were moved, and said, Is this Naomi? And she said unto them, Call me not Naomi, which means beautiful and agreeable, call me Mara, for the Almighty hath dealt very bitterly with me. I went out full, and the Lord hath brought me home again empty. Even so the devout widow will not desire to be called or counted beautiful or agreeable, asking no more than to be that which God wills, lowly and abject in his eyes. The lamp which is fed with aromatic oil sends forth yet a sweeter odor when it is extinguished, and so those women whose married love was true and pure give it a stronger perfume of virtue and chastity, when their light, that is, their husband, is extinguished by death. Love for a husband while living is a common matter enough among women, but to love him so deeply as to refuse to take another after his death is a kind of love peculiar to her, who is a widow indeed. Hope in God while resting on a husband is not so rare, but to hope in him when left alone and desolate is a very gracious and worthy thing, and thus it is that widowhood becomes a test of the perfection of the virtues displayed by a woman in her married life. The widow who has children requiring her care and guidance above all in what pertains to their souls and the shaping of their lives, cannot and ought not on any wise to forsake them. Saint Paul teaches this emphatically and says that those who provide not for their own and specially for those of their own house are worse than an infidel, but if her children do not need her care, then the widow should gather together all her affections and thoughts in order to devote them more wholly to making progress in the love of God. If there is no call obliging her in conscience to attend to external secular matters, legal or other, I should advise her to leave them all alone and to manage her affairs as quietly and peacefully as may be, even if such a course does not seem the most profitable. The fruit of disputes and lawsuits must be very great indeed before it can be compared in worth to the blessing of holy peace. Not to say that those legal entanglements and the like are essentially distracting, and often open the way for enemies who solely the purity of a heart which should be solely devoted to God. Prayer should be the widow's chief occupation. She has no love left save for God. She should scarce have aught to say to any, save God. And as iron, which is restrained from yielding to the attraction of the magnet, when a diamond is near, darts instantly towards it as soon as the diamond is removed. So the widow's heart, which could not rise up wholly to God or simply follow the leadings of his heavenly love during her husband's life, finds itself set free when he is dead to give itself entirely to him, and cries out with bride and the canticles, Draw me, I will run after thee, I will be holy thine, and seek nothing, save the savior of thy good ointments. A devout widow should chiefly seek to cultivate the graces of perfect modesty, renouncing all honors, rank, title, society, and the like vanities. She should be diligent in ministering to the poor and sick, comforting the afflicted, leading the young to a life of devotion, studying herself to be a perfect model of virtue to younger women. Necessity and simplicity should be the adornment of her garb, humility and charity of her actions, simplicity and kindliness of her words, modesty and purity of her eyes. Jesus Christ crucified the only love of her heart. Briefly, the true widow abides in the church as a little March violet, shedding forth an exquisite sweetness through the perfume of her devotion, ever concealing herself beneath the ample leaves of her heart's lowliness. While her subdued coloring indicates her mortification, she dwells in waste uncultivated places, because she shrinks from the world's intercourse, and seeks to shelter her heart from the glare with which earthly longings, whether of honors, wealth, or love itself, might dazzle her. Blessed is she if she so abide, says the holy apostle. Much more could I say on this subject, but suffice it to bid her who seeks to be a widow indeed, read Saint Jerome's striking letters to Salvia, and the other noble ladies who rejoiced in being the spiritual children of such a father. Nothing can be said more, unless it be to warn the widow indeed not to condemn or even censure those who do resume the married.
A highlight from S13 E16: Oliver: Writer, Producer, and Novelist Spotlight
"Hello, welcome to The Loney Show. I'm your host, John Mayolone. In this episode, don't have regulars, because raisins, as always, unfortunately. As for our guest, he's from Portland, Oregon, currently living in Los Angeles, California, and he is a film producer. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you Oliver Tutill Jr. Well, thank you, Peter. It's actually Ted Hill Jr. But thanks for having me on your show. I'm excited to be here. Anytime. So, how's life? It's good. It's really exciting. I love the film business. I've been in the business for quite a while. And it's very exciting meeting different people, talking to different producers, actors, filmmakers, editors, composers, business financing. It's all very exciting. You meet a lot of very interesting people that are very involved in their work and are very creative. Ah, very good. And have you been up to much recently? Yeah, we've been pretty busy. My company's name is Cinema Development and Writing Services. And my business partner is Tara Walker. And what we do is, when we started out, we've had our business about a year now. And anybody that's curious, they can just go to cinema wds .com. That's our website. And what we do is, we work with novelists, and we adapt their novels into screenplays. And then once we've adapted them into screenplays, we've been asked by our clients to, well, can you place this with Hollywood companies? And we said, well, yeah, we probably can, you know, we weren't doing that. We're primarily focused on writing, but we started packaging, which means that we started putting together like a deck of electronic brochure that shows the actors we thought might be good for the role, and what the director is. And then we present it to different production companies, different producers and finance companies in Los Angeles, and sometimes in New York as well. Okay, very nice. And what inspired you to start all that? Well, I think I started out in the business, and so did Tara, we were both actors. And we enjoyed that. But it's, it's very, very tough. Getting regular work as an actor, you go through good times, and then there's these long stretches where you don't have much work. And so we said, Well, how can we get more involved in business? And so we both decided, well, why don't we become producers? So Tara started her own production company years ago called Alpenfest films. And then I started, I started out making a production company called Autumn Tree Productions, where I, at that time, this was in the late 1980s, I pretty much focused on making educational films, and actually was pretty much on emotional child abuse. And I did that for 10 years, I had a lot of success. A lot of my films, educational films are used in universities and colleges and many institutions. And after doing that for 10 years, I wanted to segue over into doing commercial motion pictures and, and documentaries. So I started a company called Bluewood films. And under that name under that company, I produced quite a few films and documentaries and pleased to say that some of them are on streaming platforms now where people can can see them. I just have my newest release was just last month. It's called Crazy Horse of Life, featuring Russell Means, the late Nakoda actor who did very well. Right, then. Very good. And have you ever considered like, releasing any of your work on an international level? Yes, I mean, Crazy Horse of Life is available internationally. They can definitely time to be TV so anybody can go to to be TV and anywheres in the world basically and watch it for free. It's ad supported. And then we've got another film called the right to bear arms, which is a dramatic crime feature starring john savage. And that's available on Amazon Prime and Amazon freebie and also on to be TV. And we've got another film that's distributed internationally. It's also on to be TV. It's called the Loch Ness Monster of Seattle and it features Graham Green, the Academy Award nominated actor from Dances with Wolves. It's been doing very well. My distributor is very pleased. He just sent me a letter the other day and he said how happy is that how well it's doing. So those those three films are available now. We've got new ones that are going to be coming out later this year. We're excited about. Wow, fantastic. So where would you see yourself 20 years from now? Well, that's a good question. And 20 years is a long time. But I would say in 20 years, I'd probably see myself and Tara, my business partner, our own company now, but probably producing eight to 12 motion pictures a year. Also, I'm a composer too. So I probably, I haven't been doing my composing recently, but I've, I've scored a lot of motion pictures and documentaries. And it's a matter of fact, Crazy Horse of Life. The score I did that score and I did actually I wrote the score years ago, but it's used in this big feature now and I scored the movie right to bear arms as well. So but 20 years, I want to still be producing movies and helping actors and helping create jobs for people that work in the industry. You badly because they can't get work. Yes, of course. So I want to provide jobs for people. And also, I'm a novelist as well. And I hope to have a few more novels released. I just had my first novel released by awesome Achilles publishers, which is their home offices in London. So it's definitely an international release. And it's called when the sunlight goes down, goes dark, excuse me, when the sunlight goes dark. And it's about a young, young boxer living in Los Angeles, who has to deal with unscrupulous promoters. And one of the one of the supporting characters in the book is a man from England who who wins one of the heavyweight titles. It's also a book that it also covers worker exploitation, family dysfunction, spousal Okay, fantastic. Yeah, let me just mention, Peter, that people can look at it to go to the website for the book. It's when the sunlight goes dark .com. That's the website for the book. And it's also available on amazon .com and Barnes and Noble, Goodreads, any bookstore, you go into any reputable bookstore, and they can order it for you. All right, then very good. So in terms of your written work, besides what, besides the novels you've just written, are there any more novels you're yet to write or have released? I do have one novel. It's called primordial division. I'm searching for the right agent to rep it. It's kind of a crime horror novel. It's also set in Los Angeles in the 1970s and 1980s. And it's about a woman who has the ability to see the future. She's kind of one of these mind readers and the kid, the male protagonist is able to, he's got the power of telepathy. Very good. And it's set in the context of the entertainment industry. Oh, nice, nice. What could you give a 40 minute presentation on without any preparation? I'm sorry, say that again, Peter, a 14. What could you give a 40 minute presentation on without any preparation? Oh, a 40 minute presentation? I could give it on, definitely, I could probably give it on, I made educational films for 10 years. So I could do on an education, I could do one on the film business. They cover all the aspects of the film business from development to pre production to production to post production, exhibition and distribution. I could do that for you. I've been in the music business since I was a kid. So probably give you a one on that as well. So, okay, very good. What which recent news story have you found most interesting? That's a really great question. The recent most recent news story that I found the most interesting probably would be what's going on with our climate and what's happening to the earth in regards to the climate crisis that's happening in the world today. That's that's one of them, I guess I know it's a big topic, but it definitely stands out. I'm also fascinated by what's going on in American politics today, who's running for president and what's going on in Congress in the Senate. And I'm also very concerned with the state of our country, you know, and how divided people are and how unhappy so many people are. Yeah, absolutely. I was gonna also say to my friends who are very struggling because they have kids, and it's hard for them to get daycare for the kids. So I have one friend, she had to give up work because she, she couldn't afford to hire a babysitter or a nanny or daycare. So yeah, she had to give up her job. Oh, no, that's just sad. Very sad, very sad, the income inequality in this, in the United States. I'm not an expert in your country, but in the United States, it's very sad to see so many people that are divided by class. Wow, I thought the UK was bad. I didn't know that the US has got bigger problems given its size. Yeah, there's a lot of problems. Definitely. We've seen the erosion of the middle class here. You know, it's been kind of disappearing for years. And the income inequality that exists in this country, it's pretty bad. And as well as you know, there was a, I was watching, I was watching News Nation the other night and the big story presented by Chris Cuomo, who's an interesting newscaster, whose brother to his brother to the former governor. And he his top story was these kids that these babies, basically, the toddlers and daycare that died from fentanyl overdoses. And he's all over that. And I'm thinking, yeah, that's, that's tragic. But a lot of people don't want to address what's happening kids into this country, they have many kids suffer from abuse, and how they it's very difficult for them to thrive and survive become and constructive citizens. That that puts something into the country that helps it grow more. Yeah, absolutely. You know, I can share one thing with you, I used to be a teacher. And I taught drama at a film school and a college, as well as film production. And I had a class, this is in Seattle, Washington. And I had a class where I had a quite quite a number of kids that were African American. And I'll never forget this, Peter, because like, they would come to class, sometimes the girls would be crying and go, what's wrong? She go, Well, Joey got killed last night. He said, What are you talking about? She goes, Yeah, Joey, you know, he got on the top of he got on the roof of Dan's car and Dan shot him to death. I said, Oh, you don't read about that in the paper. And then then another day, a girl came into class, she was weeping. I said, What's the matter? And she's when my sister was killed last night. I said, Well, what happened? She said somebody shot to her living room window, and she was killed. You don't read about it in newspaper. Just people don't know about that. Exactly. Yes, indeed. It's the media these days, they only want to show what they really want to show. They don't show the important stuff that goes on like poverty, financial crisis or things that impact a lot of people in this world. Absolutely correct. Yes, you're right, Peter. They don't know it's funny, funny because Chris, it's not funny, but I found it interesting. Chris Como mentioned one night on his show on news nation, he, he mentioned that people don't want to talk about class warfare in this country, you know, what's going on between the classes between the wealthy and the poor, or the struggling lower middle class, you get an idea of it. And now with all the strikes that are going on, you get the writers Guild of America on strike. You've got the screen actors Guild that's going on strike. Now you've got the United Auto Workers going on strike, and it's getting bigger, that strikes growing. And if that strike goes all out, it's going to, it's going to play havoc on the economy here. Yeah, absolutely. What do you disagree with most frequently? What do I disagree with most frequently? Probably people that say everything's going to be great. You know, you just have to hang in there. And also, I find myself disagreeing a lot with financial advisors who say, just, you know, keep it where it is, you know, don't sell, just stay steady, keep your bonds, 40 % bonds or 60 % bonds, 40 % stock or 40 % bonds, 60 % stock. I disagree a lot with financial advisors. Not that I'm an expert in finance, but I'm fascinated by it. I read about it. Absolutely. How much time do you spend on the internet? How much time do I spend on the internet? A fair amount, because I do a lot of research on the internet. And while I'm something to do research on something particular, then then you find, wait a minute, I've got to have to research this more. Then you find yourself going to another page, finding more things to read about. And then you realize you're going to be searching even more on the internet. So and to be honest with you, I spend so much time on the internet as it is on zoom calls. I'm tired of looking at the internet. I prefer reading books. So I read a lot of books. But I've got to use the internet a lot to do research. You know, especially I work with a lot of people that I've got to find out what their background is, you know, in the film business, and the financial business. So I do spend an enormous amount of time on the internet. I imagine you, you do yourself, I'm sure. Oh, yeah, absolutely. Hours upon hours. Yeah, it's a it's a necessity. It's a necessity today without a without a cell phone or computer. It'd be very difficult to survive. I do know some folks in their 70s and 80s. They don't use computers, they don't use cell phones. I do know one young guy who doesn't use a cell phone, but that's very unusual. But it's very hard to survive. I couldn't stay in business if I couldn't use a computer and cell phone. Oh, yes. Sure. It's the same for you. Yeah, of course. The internet is such a necessity. It's part of our lives, in a way. Absolutely. Yes. It is. It's built in. And you read about these kids, you know, they get addicted to their cell phones and computers. And there's so many psychologists that predict they're gonna have trouble with their personal relationships in looking at a screen. They don't spend time in person a lot. I don't know how that'll play out, but it makes sense in a lot of ways. What a world filled with clones of you, what would a world populated by clones of you be like, a world populated by I'm sorry, what what would a world populated by clones of you be like? You mean point of view? And a world populated by clones of you? What would it be like? Oh, clones of me? Yes. Okay, what would I think it would probably be a pretty peaceful world. To be honest, I don't think there'd be any wars, I think war would end. I think children would, we'd set up some type of educational system and change some values in the government in the country so that kids don't get abused, that parents are afforded the education and the training, starting in high school. Probably actually, I take that back, starting in grammar school. How to parent, how to treat other human beings, learning about themselves, becoming self intelligent, learning emotional intelligence, understanding their emotions. And growing up to be citizens that are productive and have empathy for other people. And if this happened, we could, I believe we could end this may sound naive, but I do think we could end poverty in this country. But there's no will to do that. There's no will to help kids because children can't vote. And they're not members of political action committee. So I would, I would make sure that their political action committee is available for children. I would allow children at a certain age if they can show that they have some knowledge about the political system, to have a say in voting, to see who represents them. And I believe with education, and with treating people well, with respect and compassion, having people trained for the type of work that they want to do, that poverty could could be eliminated. And so there are a lot of clones to me, there would be no more wars. And there would be a lot less suffering in the world. Yeah, that sounds that sounds like a very good reason. Thank you. Welcome. What's Education is the key. Education is the key and law. The merging of law and education. And again, unfortunately, the people in power, the bureaucrats and politicians don't have the will or the desire to bring about the needed changes. Yeah, it's so sad. What is your favorite quote? Yes. And probably, I guess it's a quote that is on my mind a lot now, because it's a quote I used to open my novel when the sunlight goes dark about the boxing family in Los Angeles, and the quote is, Oh, pardon me, thou bleeding piece of earth, that I am so meek and gentle with these butchers. And it originally that quote is taken from William Shakespeare's Julius Caesar when Mark Anthony is standing over the dead body of Julius Caesar and Caesar has been assassinated. by members of the Senate. And he's bemoaning the fact that he's so meek and gentle with these butchers because he's kind of going along with them at the time. And it's just a quote that just stands out to me because I've used it in my book because I my books about worker exploitation in one way because a lot of these boxers are exploited. And a lot of them end up in not very good shape. Because people aren't looking out for him. So I guess for today, that's my favorite quote. I mean, I have others too. But I guess for today, that's the one that would be my favorite. All right. Very good. And I could you could use that metaphorically, too. I mean, the sense that, you know, Oh, pardon me, you know, why aren't the people that are running the government trying to help the people? Yes, that's a very good question. I'm sure you've run into very similar situations in England. Oh, yeah, absolutely. Absolutely. All the time. What's improved your wife quality so much? You wish you did it sooner? I'm sorry, Peter, you have to say that one more time. All right. What improved your life quality so much? You wish you did it sooner? well, Oh, I would I would say I spent a lot of time in therapy. I came from a very dysfunctional family. I suffered a lot of abuse, I was put into a private boarding school where kids got regularly beaten very badly. One of the lucky ones, really, I never suffered any permanent physical injury. But I think if I hadn't gone into therapy, and I was in therapy for decades, I'd say that probably the key to my being a functioning productive adult today, that in a book I read, called compassion and self hate, written by Theodore Isaac Rubin, that book changed my life. I never thought a book could change my life, but that one did. Yeah, of course. That and of course, if you're going to be successful, you have to you have to work hard, you have to know where to put your effort, you have to work hard and you have to think smart. I mean, that old saying about if you work hard, everything will fall into place is not necessarily true. I've known, I've had guy friends that have worked hard all their lives, and they've got nothing. Yeah, absolutely. So you got to work smart, as well as hard. Yes. But the more success you realize, it just adds to your happiness and your fulfillment. Yeah, of course. But people need the basic necessities have to be taken care of. You got to have clothes, you got to have proper shelter, you got to have decent physical health. I don't think I've ever met anyone that's happy if they haven't had good physical health. Yeah, of course. How did you spend your last birthday? Well, my last birthday, I had dinner with my business partner and my best friend, Tara Walker. We went to a really nice restaurant down on the beach, had a great dinner. And then went home and watched a really great movie. And it was a great day. And you know, I talked to a lot of friends and family too. I got a lot of calls. Okay. That's cool. It was fun. Oh, yes. It was quite a time. Yeah. You like birthdays? Yeah, I like birthdays. It's pretty cool, I guess. It's funny. I was just reading about Jimmy Carter, you know, the former President of the United States who is a president. And he's going to be turning 99 here in a couple days. And someone called him up, one of his family members said, I wanted to wish you a happy birthday. And he said, that's, that's not real good. I'm not really excited about this birthday. I didn't know you even make this far in his life. Yeah, he's going to be 99 years old. And you know, he's been in hospice for seven months. Everyone thought he was going to pass in about two or three weeks and he's still going. Madness. Amazing man. Absolutely. We could use a young Jimmy Carter today. That's for sure. Uh huh. Yeah. That'll be something. It would be. Yeah. Yeah. What's the best way to start the morning? The best way to start the morning is to eat a good breakfast. I know so many people that don't eat breakfast. They have health problems, they're overweight. And I don't mean starting breakfast, you know, eating junk food. You gotta eat something healthy for you. Eat something healthy. Write down the things you need to do today if you have to make a list. Yeah, it helps me a lot before I go to bed to write it to do this. So when I wake up in the morning, I know exactly what I got to do. And I got to feel the body first. You got to take care of the body. I have a friend of mine who's, he had a stroke and he's in the hospital now. He can't barely move. And, you know, he, he didn't have the right diet and he's still a fairly young man. It's very tragic. So feel the body and feed it well. Yeah, absolutely. I'm sure you know, because I could tell you put a lot of hours on your show. Oh yeah. It's, it's quite a process, but it's definitely worth it. Yeah, it's enjoyable. Yeah, sure is. If you could travel back in time, what would decade you want to live in? There's so many decades I would love to live in. There's so many centuries I'd love to live in. It's really hard to pick one, but if I had to pick one, I'd probably say the early 1960s. Sixties? That's pretty cool. Yeah, that's when Muhammad Ali came on the scene and that's when the Beatles came on the scene. To me, that's, I think we'll never see the likes of the Beatles or Muhammad Ali again. Yeah. So one of a kind, they always say. Yeah, but I, believe me, Peter, I'd love to live, I could go back to ancient Rome and be fascinated. Of course, your life expectancy wasn't very long. Oh yeah. Cause Sanitary wasn't up there and the advancement technologies got in the way. Yeah. Everything's like, ugh. I would love to live the life of a Plains Indian in 1840. I think that would be fascinating. It's freedom that people can barely conceive of today. And what a great, got the kids, Indian children back in those days, man, talk about having a great childhood. Yeah, absolutely. And that is all we have for this episode. It was great having you on Oliver talking about your works. You're welcome. And until next time, stay tuned for more.
A highlight from 104: Second Generation Genetics
"Welcome to Oregon Rooted. I'm Higher Peaks and this is Lady Sativa. You're listening to The Dirt Show, where we bring you Oregon's cannabis culture. Yeah, um, I know my water bill is bad. My water bills went way up. I've been using more than I thought I would. Have you been able to stay growing through the hot months here? I have been, but you know, yes I have been. It feels weird. Just because of the heat or because you're doing it? Both because I'm doing it. The market is so dead and to be dropping three and four hundred bucks on electricity every month feels kind of weird. Not just that, but like, you know, environmentally I'm running air conditioners and should I have never really run this much AC anyways, actually my electricity intake is a little bit down from what it was because it's a little bit more efficient. But, I don't know. I've got stuff going where I don't know what I'm going to do with it. We'll see. Well, you're doing it. That's good. I'm doing it, yeah. Are you unfollowing the right people or it seems like maybe some of these crazy fly -by -night breeders have calmed down a little bit. Am I crazy? I feel the same thing. I think the same thing. I'm not sure what happened. I was getting a bunch of heat there. It wasn't that long ago, a month ago. I reposted that thing about following somebody you don't like as a mental illness and things after that just stopped. Everything just stopped. I don't know. I stopped getting tagged to weird shit. I don't know. It's been weeks. I haven't had any drama come up. I think people are just so fatigued too in general. Sure. Social media, man. Fuck. Well, yeah. And in the last few months, I've been purposely unfollowing the ones that are blatantly obvious not to follow. Sometimes I get caught up with people following me and it's like, man, you got to keep that filter going. Gotcha. So what kind of work you've been putting in? Is it for the lines or are you just doing stuff personal or what's going on? Catch us up. Second plant that I've attempted to reverse. I think it's like the fifth or sixth reversal attempt that I've done. I'm still kind of a novice at this. But the pollen sacks or whatever, they don't have a little dangly part that they do on a regular male plant. Okay. They open up, but they don't dangle. So we don't like flapping the wind and they struggle to release that pollen. So I've a couple of times now I've gone in there and plucked them off with the tweezers and collected as much as I could. And it looks like I've got a couple successful pollination sites. But as to whether how many you'll have to be seen. And then I've got a couple of other tester things going on. Couple of things with DJ that we've collaborated on. Nice. Using those cocoa cushion nails. And then I've got my personal stuff going that my smoke. It's been really nice to be able to produce my own smoke again. I went a year and a half, two years there. No, I wasn't able to. I've been getting the most fun out of that to grow on my own smoke. Yeah, it is. It's I don't know. I prefer it. It's got to suck not being able to. I've been lucky that way. But were you going like party for asking or whatever, but were you going to dispensaries or how? Yeah. Damn. Yeah, that sucks. I was getting kicked out and shit from friends and stuff. But, you know, I smoke a lot. I remember one time I had an incident where I went to this one shop and they, you know, I would make big big he said, I mean, I used to sell weed, you know, I'm growing weed for years and years. So I know what Keith Nugget looks like. And man, I was disappointed. Yeah, I had a little freak out. That never happened to me on the black market. I was like, man, this is an illegal market. I've been more ripped off in the legal market than I. Oh, yeah. I it's hard for me to go to dispensaries. I still do occasionally not for flower anymore, of course, but, you know, edibles. I mean, geez, man, it's it's so hard to get for me anyway. I homogenizing not getting something that kicks my ass or is too weak, you know, so I do like the edibles I do buy at the dispensary. But are you a med patient? I should be, you know, but I haven't I guess I'm lazy, man. I I saving that tax money would be huge. It's expensive. Yeah, it's like 27 percent or something. I don't remember. That's right. I think that they do. They still restrict the milligram amount for med versus rec. It's weird. It depends on the edible, like if it's a child like edible. So if it's a gummy or something like that. Yeah, they're restricted to 100 milligrams, which I mean, I guess I can see, you know, if it was 100. Yeah, to 100 milligrams per. I mean, obviously, you can buy a buy up to five units per day. So why? Go ahead. I think back when I was buying and they were restricted to like 25 milligrams. I see. So 100 milligrams will do you two of those, right? Oh, well, so then if you don't get the gum, I do like the gummies because they work quick. I like the sugar base, obviously not for health, but for the, you know, edible. But actually, if you get something different like the syrups, which they don't consider to be like a child issue thing. So if you buy the syrups, you can get up to a thousand milligrams in those. And of course, that's that for me, that's too much. I prefer like I'll buy a 250 milligram syrup and then I'll split that between two nights. So I'll split, you know, one hundred and twenty five twice. And that seems to be the most efficient, affordable way to do it. Hundred milligrams is nice. But like you said, you said what you get two of them. And it's like, yeah, 200 milligrams is too much, but a hundred is not enough to put me down. Well, yeah. And then I get a massive hangover in the morning where I just don't want to get out of bed for three hours. And it's like that does not help the day. But that's really all I buy. You know, I've noticed, though, lately just messing around with these autos I've been screwing with. They don't obviously put out a lot of volume. And so I haven't been getting much in. But, you know, it's not like I guess I always thought I smoked a lot. But it's funny when you grow for yourself, you don't probably need as much as you think. You know what I mean? Like, I don't grow a lot, but it always seems to be available that the stuff I've grown. So I don't know. I tend to smoke a lot more when I when I grow my own. I see. Like, like joints and stuff or? No, just quantity. I like the bong, you know, the classic bong boy, but I'll do joints every once in a while. But I just I just. When I you know, when you buy it, you know, it's like you're smoking your money. And I have that mindset. But growing it, I just like, oh, it's free rain. Right. So like you smoke all day, like as much as you do. Well, I well, I've got a pretty good routine, actually, finally in my older years as I've settled down. And I wait until usually around three. I my am routine. I found that it's best that I conduct at least one activity first. And I feel like I'll get up and have my little morning ritual or smoothie. I go to the post office and what it usually is in the store on the way back or something, you know, get my food, my dinner stuff prepared. And then, you know, once I've got the main bulk of the outside chores done for a day, I'll come back and kind of put away smoke a little bit. A little bit? You said it was a lot. I start with a little bit. So I'll smoke like a bong hit at a time. But then I'll go back and smoke about every 20 minutes, 30 minutes when I'm going. Yeah. So I mean, like, can I ask you, since you're a bong person, do you do the one hits or do you just pack it and just hit it until it's gone? Just one hit. I never understood packing a bowl, smoking, you know, a charcoal bowl. I know, right? Never understood that. Yeah, especially when you have the option in a bong to really clear it every time and whatnot. I've never been a big bong guy, though. I don't know if it's my lungs or what, but it just. Wow. So what do you do? Joints? Yeah, I'll do joints or I mean. Joints are harsh. They can be. That's why I mean, you definitely want to smoke good joint weed. As far as where lungs go, joints just blow my lungs out. A bong, it's like you blow it out and you cough, you cough all that shit up and it's kind of done. But a joint, you just keep going and going. I hear what you're saying, man. I hear what you're saying. I mean, I think sometimes, and this is just, you know, speculation, but I think sometimes it's almost like if you get the technique down, it's like whether it's bong, whether it's bong or joint or whatever, if you get the technique and the skill down, it's like you can minimize that stuff. But if you don't have the right technique, it can mess you up. But I don't know. That's just. I don't know. I think that's right. I think, you know, growing up so poor, you never lose that mindset. And so every time I roll up a joint, you know, it's just smoking, period. Like, you know, you got one chance to fill up the lungs at a time and you got to put as much in there as possible. That's the point. Yeah. Well, absolutely.

A highlight from Rising Auto Theft Rates: Urban Consequences and Solutions
"Well, you see how easy this is now. Now you look at how they move money around and how the in your face money laundering folks, this is what this is. This is corruption and fraud. Some of the Bidens are great at the money laundering part. They got 20 shell corporations, but guess who's getting the guess who's going to be controlling the funding to rebuild Ukraine.

They take the negative stuff that's going on, but of course the negative stuff isn't the news. Yeah. Yeah. That's what we're seeing. I mean, carjackings again, Rochester had another, you know, record night. I mean, it's incredible how that was going on. And so it's amazing is, is like the Democrats just sit around and watch this happen in every city and every city. It's insane. Yeah. I sent you an article earlier this morning about Philadelphia. Let's see. I can find it. It's, uh, not that it's anything out of, you know, anything that we don't know about, but let's see here. Philadelphia swarmed by alleged juvenile. Come on, come on. Juvenile looters targeting the Apple store, Lulu lemon and footlocker. Yeah. So, cause they're starving. They're starving. They just, just need a little piece of ham and some Turkey. They need clothes and food. That's, that's only fair. I mean, they, you know, and once again, I know we've all heard this joke, but footlocker is not missing one pair of working boots. No, no, all the Nike's, all the Nike. Yeah. Well, some of those Nike's, I mean, Oh my God. Crazy. You know, talking about like, you know, thousands of dollars for a pair of, thousands, thousands of dollars. I was talking to my daughter and she said to one, one of her friends has a, as a pair of shoes were $1 ,200. I'll never forget the most expensive pair of shoes I ever bought. We were just starting a business. This was like 30 years ago now. Right. Crazy to think. And I remember somebody told me that maybe my dad was like, you got to have a decent pair of shoes. Right. And so I went up and I bought a pair of Justin and Murphy's. They're like 120 bucks at the time. Yeah. The most money I have ever spent on a pair of shoes. Now boots, I've spent more money on since because boots are more expensive, you know, hunting boots. Well, there's a purpose to them. I still don't spend more money on shoes. Like I'm wearing like Skechers or like $40. Like some of these Nike's $500. You can't tell me you're running faster. It's different when you're going to go out and buy a pair of like waders or something. You're going to use them. First of all, you're going to use them for the next 30 years. Right. And there's a purpose to them, right? Like, okay, they're more expensive, but I can walk through the water with them. Right. But if I bought like, if I had five, 600 hour pairs of shoes, I'd be afraid to leave the house. I wouldn't, I wouldn't get off the carpeting. Well, they're targeting the Apple store here, Glenn, because they'll buy jobs. And that's the only way to get a job is to make sure you've got an Apple iPhone. So it'll be like Chicago. We talked about this the other week with, with, uh, with Mike Speraza, Chicago is now forced to open or, or just talking about opening, you know, a, a government run grocery store in the inner city because they've all that. Well, they're going to, so they're going to, they're going to, the plan is to fight the communism with more kind of communism, right? That's going to work really well. But could you imagine how inefficient, first of all, Walmart's pulled out, Costco's pulled out, all the stores have pulled out because now target, have you heard targets now closing stores across the country? So target is now going through and discussing all the stores across the country, liberal target, liberal target. They put a black lives matter that they ripped down the smash of the window. I thought that'd be some sort of a shield or that we're just going to put up this, uh, this plywood and we're going to spray black lives matter on it. Hashtag hashtag BLM. And we'll be safe as they rip it out and use that same plywood to smash the window with. It's pathetic. There'll be nothing left in these inner cities. The problem is when it starts to spill over into the, into the, Oh yeah. This is, this is where it gets ugly. Well, they want it. That's what they want. That's, that's why people like, uh, the governor of New York, uh, you know, Kathy, the ice queen, Kathy Hochul is, is, you know, they first tried the push for section eight housing in the suburbs because that was only fair. Yeah. Now they couldn't get that through because the people in the suburbs are like, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. Now they're busing in illegal immigrants in the middle of the night. And I tell you something, if these Democrats like Mark Poland cars were proud of what they were doing, they would have a welcoming party at noon at noon, high noon. They'd have a press conference welcoming our newest community members off the bus so that the whole community could see these family units that are getting off. You got the husband, the wives, the two kids, you know, the things that we see in our country, right? No, it's not happening. They're bringing them in at two o 'clock in the morning. So nobody sees, they're all, they're all 23 year old males, right? Or 18 to 25 year old males. Some of which are from the Congo. I don't know about the, uh, you know, the, some of the social norms in the Congo, but I'm just thinking that maybe they're a little bit different than the Western world. I don't know. I'm just thinking maybe not. Maybe they're exactly like us. I don't know. But they're exactly like us. Why would they want to come here? Why are they aspiring to come here? I don't know. Anyway, it's a fentanyl fentanyl up again, by the way, there was another report. I think it was on a Fox news. Well, good for the Republicans. I mean, at least part of them, I should say good for the five or six Republicans that are the extreme right wing, according to the media, that's holding this garbage up. No, shut the government down, shut it down, shut it down until there's no more money. Take the money, go into Ukraine and send it to Texas, which they did right to the border, which they didn't do last time. Right. Kept it open. That's what do you need? What do you need? We're out of control. The founding fathers gave the power of the purse to Congress and the, and the Pentagon, the Pentagon goes, yeah, you know what? We're just going to exempt Ukraine funding from the budget. So ha ha. We just went over 33 trillion. If you go online and look at the clock, it's moving fast, right? So we're on our way to 34 or 35. Can you even see the numbers anymore? They just blur blur now. So, so fast. Oh no. And, and good news, by the way, we're refinancing this debt at 5 % now, not at 1 % or zero like we were doing. Yeah. It makes a lot of sense. Yeah. It'd be great. Yeah. The fence talk about keeping rates higher for longer. I don't know. They're not going to be able to do that. They'll be cutting interest rates by next year. Mark by where? And the number one reason I say that is because when you talk to every economist, I say, that's not going to happen. And they are typically wrong. So if you take the, it's like saying betting against the casino, it's like saying, you know what? I don't think MGM is going to make money in the sporting books next year. Ma, they're going to figure out a way to make money. They'll rechange the lines, right? Well, you, all you need to do is look at it and get a bunch of economists in a room and ask them where they think the market's going to be and then do just the opposite and you would be way better. Yeah. Pretty much that's usually the way to go. No doubt about it. So the, the, the, the Pelosi, we were talking earlier about the Pelosi stock trader. Yeah. You can follow online. Now, some of these folks, we did the game show game last week. We talked about the, uh, the net worth. I picked the poor ones too. They were like 23, 21, you know, $20 million. Some of these folks are amazing. I mean, really just, you know, the wizards of smart on some of these are just really, timing is impeccable up here. This is somebody who is selling some software that I'll track it, which you can, you, you've pointed out, you can get it for free online, but, but the, the numbers are really astonishing. This Democrat Senator sold her Aspen vacation home for $25 million. That was just after she sold her Lake Tahoe vacation house for $36 million. Well, by the way, why, why do they own these big $25, $36 million homes? Well, a big, big part of it is because the taxation of it, right? So a Feinstein who's telling you your ordinary income tax rates are too low. She's shifting that to a capital asset, which is going to create a capital gain in the future or no gain. Or no gain. I mean, they're 10, 10 31. This is why when Donald Trump looked at Hillary Clinton right in the eye and said, you will not get rid of the carry interest deduction and you know it because all of your, I use it, of course, all of her bigger donors donate money to Hillary Clinton. And this is exactly the truth, right? They will never get rid of some of these things. Like they talked about, we're going to get rid of the 10 31 exchanges. Yaha. Yeah. Uh huh. Yeah. So the big developer strokes a giant check to the, to the Democrats off the table. Let's listen to her success though. Amazing. A Senator sold her Aspen vacation home for $25 million just after she sold her Lake Tahoe vacation house for $36 million. Only two years earlier, Diane Feinstein has been a member of the political scene for 32 years and her salary is only $130 ,000 per 130 grand a year. Now it's more now. That's a little bit dated, but it's up, it's up to probably 180 now. But, but listen to this. First of all, if it was up to 580, you're not buying $23 million homes, $36 million homes. No, no, we're going to put in multiple homes. We're going to, we're going to put the Paul Pelosi onto our research committee. You make a million dollars a year. First of all, most of, most business owners that make that kind of money, they didn't make it throughout their whole life, right? They didn't start making a million dollars at 20 years old. They started making a million dollars at 50 years old and it took 30 years to get to that point. Right? So my point is, you're not at a million dollars a year at age 50. If you did it the right way, the hard way, and you did it yourself, you're still not affording a $23 million home, right? Multiple ones. Yeah. Multiple, multiple. Right. Those aren't even her primary residence. Those are her vacation homes. She lives in, she lives in California. Listen to this though. And it's, it's all of them. It's all of them now. This is a, this is from Nancy Pelosi, stock trader. Uh, this is a tweet, uh, a Twitter feed. You can follow Pelosi tracker is what it's supposed to track or underline or something like that. You'll find it. Anyway, uh, three weeks ago, sitting politician bet against the U S economy so far. He's been right. Tom Carper bought $45 ,000 of PSQ and inverse ETF on the tech sector on eight 23, August 23rd. Since then he's plus 3 % while the market is negative 4%. Go figure. Wow. Go figure. Man, these guys are so good. Yeah. And they're not by, they're, I mean, these are, that's some pretty technical strategy. You started getting into options strategies and stuff. I mean, yeah. Yeah. These guys have become very, very slick. It's not just about buying a, you see, it used to be, okay, I'm going to buy X, Y, Z. Then I'm going to vote for or against something. You know, I'm going to short the stock and then I'm going to vote against them for both that, that, that. So the stock goes down or I'm going to vote for something, knowing that it will benefit the company. The stock will go up and in a sense front running. No, they're, they're in the options strategies now. They're in the market. Yeah. They're doing butterfly spreads. Yeah. Crazy stuff going. They're very sophisticated. They shouldn't be allowed to two things. When you go into Congress, I, you know, I would love to have a Congress person run on or present around the following platform, right? Number one, term limits, term limits, top of the list. Number two, though, while you're in Congress for the eight years, or wherever we allow you to serve 10 years, 12 years, whatever it is, you could not invest in a stock market at all. All your investments are frozen or your choices, a model, some kind of a model liquidated go to cash, or you could buy the fidelity balance to counter. You could buy the, you could buy the T -rope price, you know, target retire, whatever, you know, or you go to goes into a blind something or other where you have no idea. Right. It just goes into what you picked a one through five tolerance for risk and somebody else invest. Maybe it's just broad indexing. Maybe that's it. Right. Something that doesn't allow this kind of garbage to go on where, you know, they buy, you know, Tesla stock and then approve a huge, you know, oh, we're going to, guess what? We're going to build a, you know, for government funded battery stations all the country. Of course, Elon comes out and goes, we already got those, you idiots. I did that like four years ago, you morons. Amazing what Elon can do and what the, what the government can. Going back to target for just a second, not to digress, but I found WGRZ, thankfully came up with a list of the, uh, the target stores that will be closing, Mike, the full list of locations all in, all in Republican run. You'll be shocked. Yeah. Yeah. Right in the, uh, the thriving, the, uh, you know, thriving, the Minneapolis, uh, location, the retailer said the decision, the close was really difficult. I wonder if that was after half. That was the one they put the BLM on. Yeah. Oh, that was the one they put the sign on that said, please don't burn our store down. We love you. I hashtag BLM lit it on fire. Yeah, that's right. Yeah. Uh, let's see. I'm shocked though. I wouldn't, I'm surprised you wouldn't stay. I mean, you know, like just collecting, you love them. You love, you support them. This is what you supported. Remember you, you, you raised money, you gave money. Yeah. And guess what they did with that money. They agitators hired to whip up people in the community to smash and burn down your store. You idiots. So there you go. There you go. Nice, nice work. What else do you think, Mike? Uh, New York city's East Harlem neighborhood. That's going to be one that's goes down. I wonder why. Chicago, San Francisco for sure. San Fran. Yeah. San Fran. Uh, by the way, before I forget San Fran, Democrat San Francisco mayor, announces plan to require drug testing, which is good in an effort to, if you're going to receive homeless benefits. Right. But the funny thing was in this same passage, they're going to Texas to try to recruit police officers. The funny thing is is that the people they sent from San Francisco to try to recruit people. They didn't come back. They defected like North Koreans. Some of them got jobs. They get over the wall. They come out, they get over the wall. It was hilarious. No, they didn't go back. Well, the other five stores, Mike, three in Portland, Oregon and two in Seattle, five, three in Portland. They're pulling out of Portland together. All of these inner cities folks will be food deserts. You're going to hear that term. It'll be business deserts. It'll be nothing. Well, business deserts, nothing left, but there'll be, but target, don't forget target. Does target sell food? Yeah. Well, yeah. They sell food. Yeah. For sure. Yeah. Well, I don't go on target. So Walmart I know does Costco for sure. Costco is a food store. I don't think target is as big as Walmart as far as like fresh fruit, but definitely frozen food, all that kind of stuff. You know, aisles of pop and water and chips and right, right, right. And all that kind of stuff. But you can definitely frozen food. You can buy bulk frozen food there. So, so there's going to be food deserts, all over the place, business deserts, whatever you want to call them. You know, it's amazing because you know, the, there's no policing. And the sad thing is that is the problem. It's not, there's no policing. I shouldn't say that. Excuse me. No, you're policing your asses off. I get it. There's no ability. There's no prosecution. There's no bill. You guys are arresting people, putting them in and they go right back on the street. They're getting, they're getting appearance tickets. It's a joke. Your point is no, there is no policing anymore because of the system, the Democrats put together where the police officers aren't going to bother. If you're a police officer and you know that somebody is going to be this, this carjacking or whatever is robbery. And you know that there's a potential, you're going to get an altercation where you're in New York state. There's two police officers that have been brought up on charges recently with almost a hundred percent chance that if you do catch that person, that person will be right back. Yeah. A hundred percent. Why would you bother? Why would you bother? You're not going to put your life in line. No way. You want to go home to see your wife and kids too, and your mother or your husband or whatever. You want to be able to spend your Christmas with your family. Why would you do that? And they know that, right? The Democrats know that. This is, you can't be this stupid. I mean, who allows these people to go right back on the streets and say, this is a good idea without correcting this right away. You can say, okay, bail reform. Our intentions were one thing, but when you look at the fact that in New York state, we are now breaking records in towns like Rochester and Buffalo for the most amount of vehicles being stolen. We can say, okay, look at bail reform, put it in place. It clearly did not work. It's been a total disaster. These towns have turned to shit. We absolutely need to go back in the other direction. They're not doing that. They don't care. They want to, and they're doubling down, tripling down on it, tripling down. We invited this liberal on, you actually were on the show with him and he said, things are actually safer since bail reform. That's what his argument was. His argument was, and by the way, his argument was if we have even less police officers, cities like Buffalo will get safer. Well the thought was less police officers, less arrests. Less arrests means less crime. Dude, you got the whole thing backwards, bro. And not only that, but now we know that, right? Now we know, now you can, I mean, literally auto thefts are up 360 % in Rochester. They're not up 3%. You can say, well, you know, in Buffalo and we're in second place. And they can't play, they can't play in COVID. They're trying to like, well, it was a lockdown. People were at pent up, whatever. Remember that was the, that was the reason for the rioting and the ballooning and burning like, well, people had a lot of pent up. We probably should have locked them down. That was a little bit of the reason for the increase in suicides. You guys, you guys increased suicides because you locked kids in their homes, but it wasn't the reason that they went and decided to steal Nike sneakers from a footlocker. So check this out. Speaking of COVID, this is huge. This is, I don't know if you saw this or not, but this is absolutely ginormously huge. Dr. Fauci was smuggled into CIA headquarters without a record of entry where he participated in the analysis to influence the agency's COVID -19 investigation according to the house select subcommittee on the coronavirus pandemic. Did he need to do much with these left -wing CIA agents? Probably not. No, no, no. That's what they're smuggling him in for. Well they smuggled him in because they didn't want anybody to know that he was part of the PSYOP operation, which was hydroxychloric. By the way, the I think it was a Mayo clinic and some other hospitals now have come out as well as the CDC and said hydroxychloroquine, yes, indeed is an effective treatment for COVID. Oh, by the way, ivermectin also an effective treatment. The CDC now approving that. Now mind you, we're going to keep in mind that if there was any other treatments that couldn't get the emergency use authorization for these vaccines that clearly don't work. Amazingly, I'm still seeing people online go signing off my sixth booster on our way for the sixth shot, proud to get our sixth shot. How about how about one the other day, local left -wing nut job got her sixth booster shot, six shot and she still got COVID and then she said, well, I was so good hiding and it got all my shots and then I went to a concert and I got it at this concert. Well, first of all, you don't know that, but second of all, if you have six shots and you six shots and you still got COVID and you actually think that was a good idea, you don't need a vaccination. You need a mental, you need a mental check. I tell you, I know people during the during the COVID, the height of the COVID that were older, some of our clients actually that were prescribed by a doctor a hydroxy quirk when they were taking it once a week as a as a preventative measure. Yeah. And they, to this day have never had COVID. Yeah. And it's, it's, I mean, so it, but the sad thing is again, you know, we couldn't, it's all about the money now. And that's, you know, when people talk about the evils of capitalism, you're seeing some of that. Now, capitalism is the best thing on the planet, right? As far as, you know, lifting the masses out of poverty and creating amazing amounts of wealth. But the problem is this isn't, this isn't capitalism. What's going on. This is cronyism is what's going on. It is, Hey, look at, I will give you these government dollars. You're going to get this patent. You're going to get this. Unholy marriage between business and government. Mark my word. We were talking about Feinstein selling 25, $30 million homes. This Fauci will be on the board of Pfizer. He'll be on the board of Moderna. He's going to get shares of those companies. He will be blessed with with with millions and millions of dollars. His family watch and see, we'll be talking if we're, if you and I are fortunate enough to be around 20, 30 years from now, we'll be talking about the Fauci trust and watch and monitor that trust and see how big that family trust. Well, you see how easy this is now. You look at how they move money around and how the in your face money laundering folks. This is what this is. This is corruption and fraud. Some of the Bidens are great at the money laundering part. They got 20 shell corporation, but guess who's getting the, guess who's going to be controlling the funding to rebuild Ukraine. We pay to destroy it. And guess what? The Hillary Clinton foundation gets paid to rebuild it. Right. And guess who's going to get the contracts to rebuild. Oh, that'll be probably one of the Biden family members or somebody else's politically connected. Right. Remember it was, it was a Joe Biden's brother who got the contract, the multi -billion dollar contract to rebuild Iraq. No building experience, never been a contractor, right? No idea. Right. This is why these projects cost 500 times what they're supposed to cost. This is why when money comes into Buffalo, for example, $25 million to build homes, five get built. And you were, wait a minute, five, are these $5 million homes in the East side? Each of those homes would have been built for a quarter million dollars or less. And yet where did the rest of the money go? And the, the answer is never, we don't know. We don't know. We can't account for it. Or we'd have no idea. Or I mean, how many times have we've seen that in so many places that whether right down the local level or God forbid at the federal level between, you know, Iraq and others. I was telling you last week on the radio, I was reading an article about the grants that were coming into the city of Buffalo to plant trees. And I thought, okay, wow, like this could be sweet. Okay. You know, like I'm a big tree guy. I love trees. I plant trees every year. I do think, okay, that's one way to, first of all, I think it's one way to make a community look great. When you, when you drive around, let's say North Buffalo, all the streets are all tree. They look beautiful. You drive around the East side, it looks like shit, right? So, okay. You're going to take some of my tax money and you're going to directly plant trees. Okay. It's a win for the environment. It looks nice. It's going to bring things together. I'm like, well, where's the catch? This is a government agency. Where are they going to screw it up? You read through and you find out that they're paying $1 ,000 a tree. Now you and I both know that if they're saying it's $1 ,000 a tree, by the time it's done, it'll be two to $3 ,000 a tree. Now you, you're talking about $13 million worth of trees. You and I just planted trees. Every year we plant a few trees around our office, you know, three, four in the spring, three, four in the fall, just so they can start to grow and work their way in. And then, you know, plant more. We pay $250 a tree, plant it. Right.

It is my birthday tomorrow. So sometimes if my birthday coincides with rewatchables, which I think has only happened one other time, but we like to do a big movie. So that's where we're doing one of my favorite movies the last 40 years. Stay tuned. Coming up next, we had an action packed loaded week three. We're gonna talk Taylor Swift, Travis Kelsey. We're gonna talk about Miami putting up 70. Sal's team losing. We're gonna introduce a new character, parent corner. Sal sent his kid to college. Oh man, this is almost two hours. Let's get to it. First pro jam. Let's get to it. All right, taping this a little after 8 .30, Sunday night Pacific time. The hardest word come in and show business is here. Cousin Sal just watched Pittsburgh Vegas, a bizarre game, but we're not starting there. We're starting with your team. You're stupid cowboys. You compliment me and now that I see what you did here. Okay, all right. Your stupid team that I thought I could throw into a little 11 and a half Arizona, like throw a bit. All they had to do was run by two and a half. I had a FanDuel boost. I had real life money. I had a million dollar pick and it's like, of course they'll beat the Cardinals by two and a half. Rahim thought the Cardinals were tanking. No, no, that's not what happened. And now you're containing cowboys. They couldn't even make it to my birthday before they fell apart. They couldn't even make it to the end of September. Was that the goal? I guess had they known your birthday was a Monday. Yeah, they might've stuck around. I know, I know. I don't know what to tell you. It sucked. I had it tied to everything too. I had an Oregon this and the Chiefs this and the 49ers and the Cowboys and everything. And I didn't even care that they had three, essentially three offensive linemen out or that Trayvon Diggs got hurt. Not that I didn't care, but I didn't think it would affect this game. And then they just got, they went out there and got their asses kicked. 13 penalties and didn't force any turnovers and couldn't do shit in the red zone. And of course it's a double digit loss, jerks. I kept, I had in the back of my head Rahim's theory that the Cardinals were tanking and that they were only playing one, a good first half. And then they would throw away the second half because their real goal is Caleb Williams. So at halftime, I'm like, I'm not going to panic yet. Maybe the Rahim's theory, no. The Rahim's theory was not true. The Cardinals actually played really well. And your team, I will say, look, this happens sometimes. Usually it doesn't happen in week three. It happens later in the year. But the team that is getting smoke blowing up their butts, they have this easy game and say, oh yeah, we're going to Arizona. It's going to be half Dallas fans. This will be a layup for us. So we've seen this scenario, just not this early in the season. What worried me though, from a Dallas standpoint, forget about the offensive line and the blocking stuff. Cause you'll get those guys back. But you do seem to have like third and seven, third and eight if Lamb is covered, where do you go issued? Like, you know, not everyone has the Kelsey type, but you don't have the Devontae Adams. You don't have really any of those guys. You don't have that big physical tight end in the middle. You don't have the awesome, you know, James White type third down running back who's going to get open. And you could really feel it in the red zone. They were one for five in the red zone today. Yeah. I mean, you know, what's his name? The tight end who went to Houston, I already forgot his name from Dallas last year, was our second lead. Schultz was our second leading receiver last year. So yeah, there is something to be said about that. And I do want to put it in proper perspective. If the Eagles lose to Tampa Bay, which is a possibility tomorrow, the week is a wash in the NFC East, right? That means everyone will have lost. So I don't want to get too crazy, but it did expose, you're right, everything I always worry about. Can Dak come up with a big play down the stretch? You know, are these injuries too much to overcome? And Mike McCarthy in that play calling, it really seemed like we were up 12 points trying to bleed the clock, not down 12 points. And it's like, oh, maybe he's just afraid to throw it. And then when we saw, he threw into three defenders and you cleverly quipped, how did they know which of the three were to intercept it? Yeah, that was kind of wrenching. That was an angry text to yours. I was just angrily texting. Like it was your fault that I was losing all my teases. Yeah, he just threw into three guys on one of the biggest plays of the game. Complete panic throw.
"oregon" Discussed on Oregon Rooted: The Dirt Show
"Talking about. I don't know. I don't know what you're talking about. There's no plants in here. All the pots were gone and everything, but because I left those down at the fucking park. But they're like, they found all the clippings and a branch or two, but there was no charge you. They didn't charge me with any kind of possession. No. Okay, cool, wow. Yeah, no. In Texas, they done nailed you for the lead. No, right, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. No, he probably could have gotten me on like a ticket. He probably could have wrote me a ticket. But you could have up to an ounce and just get a ticket. And there wasn't that many leaf stuff around. It was just you could see that it was cannabis that was there. You tell you. And then I have fucking that out the back door with it. Yeah, and then I've got fucking a thousand watt HPS in the fucking closet. Oh my God, no, I don't know what that's in there for. My brother sent that to me. I don't know. And he was pissed. He was pissed. He couldn't get me from growing. And he could have nailed you the wall, dude. Oh yeah, I took her serious. I'm glad I did. Yeah, you could have been like nah, you ain't calling. What are you talking about? Yeah, so he had to take off. Did she smoke weed? Yeah. It was her plans too. What the fuck kind of, that's short sighted, folks. Red flag. Listen, if she burns down the house, you're both in guys, listen. I never said it was a good relationship. But a woman scorned man and so she didn't have any kind of remorse. And so that was the end of that. Yeah, but for any partner out there, male or female has a partner, yeah, you better be careful if you're growing illegal substances at the time. Also don't narc on people.

"Are expensive, man. Oh God. I just hung up I hung up some of those LED lights you hang up in your backyard. Oh yeah. To make it all ambiance and shit. And I'm wondering if I fucked up. But then I'm like, if they're not super bright, it shouldn't be an issue. I have some rainbow lights that by my on my back porch by my hot tub that kind of had a little rain like they change colors. It's vibey. And they don't fuck with my plants. Well, I don't think they will, but most of my plants, again, will be autos, which is really fucking cool. I got this neighbor out back there. You showed me that. Anyways, do you want me to come over here with my pellet gun? Tink? Are you serious? It cracks like a rifle, man. I have fucking around. It goes over a thousand feet per second. You got a scope on that thing? I don't need one. I use iron sight. Let's right there. Yeah, we don't get along because of that light, but with the autos should matter, right? No, it shouldn't matter. Yeah, that's good. That's good. I don't know if it'll affect the semis, but I'm going to put them in the back. I want to run something by you. I did notice that on a couple of my photos, man. I kind of screwed up, what do you think, do you think light schedule will screw up your flower and make them fox tail? You know, I don't know that I've 'cause I'm a set a set of photos. I screwed up in the last week, I screwed up and the light cycle went off by about like it went longer instead of 12 hours it went like 14 twice. And then in the last 5 days of that run, I started to get like little fox deals coming. And I'm like, did it go back to veg?

"I have this theory that the reason women always seem to be more pure step whereas men get more tattoos is because piercing through cartilage just frankly hurts more than tattoos. And so maybe they've got a higher pain threshold and they're just so they'll just go like these women with like 15, you know, most of the really appear stuff people are women. Okay. I have this theory, so maybe it's like maybe maybe they're more detail oriented in that way. Like they've got a brain for foraging. So the skills you need to keep a sterile environment, I see what you're saying. Evolutionary are more tight to foraging than me. Like, I don't, I'm not good. I didn't even notice how fucked up your table was when I walked in. Are you telling me how fucked up? Oh, this table's fucked up. I'm like, oh, I guess it's fucked up. I was looking for a coaster, right? But you noticed it right. So it's not sex. It's just like, what, you know, you find your strengths, right? I can't run a sterile environment. I'll track and shit. Don't don't hire me for your mushroom lab folks. I'll fuck it up. And it's not even because I'm trying. I'm just not, I'm not a lab clean. I'm just not where I have ever lived. I've always been in austere environments. I don't know how to act in a lab. But at the same token, I'm skilled enough not to rub the dirt from my cannabis on its leaves and just get mold going all over it. You know, so there's I'm not a complete mess. But yeah, I think certain kinds of let's say women make really good snipers. No one knows why there's been studies and it might just be the women. They probably like killing people. I was going to say they're going to be slightly better at complex math in certain ways. I don't know, but there's certain skills that you need to be a sniper and a lot of soldiers don't have them. A lot of soldiers are very brash and don't think before they act. So maybe it's a hormone thing. I have no idea. But you know, there's some famous female snipers out there, you know? And dudes dudes are getting mad. If I have to get a slew of bad emails on the Florida all to you, bro fucking do it. Fucking do it. I love it. Well, there is a lot more women. And do you think like with cannabis I've wondered about this, maybe this is just my demented weird mind and I've heard it elsewhere, but do you think there's something about,

"They're kind of, they're going to check. Repeatedly. There's no avoiding it. You're going to get caught. If you smoke weed, it stays in your system too long. Sure. So, but when Colorado first opened up and then I think when Oregon rec first started, you would see, you know, you know, the 30% strains for 20 5, 20 gram, 21. you, 21 grams. Well, and maybe it'll just like you're saying will naturally come down. Maybe not to make us happy. Well, here's the deal, so that's a good point. I did want to get to. And one is that, okay, everybody's like, well, there's only one facility each and once there's a bunch out there, there's going to be this, you know, what do you call it competition and this and that? And they'll fix those prices. If you look at what's going on with like the maps program in Massachusetts and stuff, it does look like it's going to go that way. It's just going to look like prices are going to stay up there. If you look at some of the models that are happening now, and so I don't know about that. Also too, because of those costs that they're going to incur for the first few years. There's nobody in hell in the next 5 to 8 years that's going to drop any fucking prices because they're still going to have to pay those licensing fees every year. All that other bullshit. So just an opinion, but I'm not so sure it's going to be a very good space to be in for retail or what I guess I shouldn't call it retail, but therapy, therapeutic space. I don't know. I don't know what you call fucking $3500. I feel like therapeutic dose. What do you call that? I feel like black markets can be where the money's at for at least another half decade. Bro so where does that leave you? What do you mean? Oh, I don't know. I don't know if it's worth, in my opinion, I'm not sure it's even worth doing that because I don't know how I feel about being in the corporate world to begin with. Right. I don't know how pure of intention that is. And every time I do take a macro dose, I'm sitting there going, why am I growing mushrooms? I'm a grown man. And it's like, you know, my intention is always want to be aligned properly. And so with the corporate stuff going on that already from the get go with all the organ bent over pay us OLC, C, OHA, you have to be certified for the ODA because of your cannabis ever was. Well, it's cannabis times two times ten. Or no, cannabis two times ten, you know what I mean? It's cannabis all over again, but just like more regulation. They're trying to kill it in the cradles what they're trying to do. Is brutal, man. That's what they're trying to do. Listen, listen. These prices, like this is them saying, okay, you want legal match rooms. You might have had medical fine. It'll be three grand, fuck yourself. That's what they're doing up at the state House. They're doing it in a very complicated way. But that's what they're fucking doing. That sounded a little like Trump. Oh, did I finally hit Trump? That's pretty good. Just the sound of it. All right, well, and just so everybody knows the licensing, what do you think the testing, okay, so rose city laboratories is going to be the first state licensed testing laboratory or do you think that's that? Rose city, it's got to be in Portland, right? I'm just making sure if you're an oregonian. I barely barely know. Yeah, I'm trying, man. I'm still, I still feel like I'm not in Kansas anymore. Texas anymore, but a lot of times I still feel like I'm in a weird trip.

"They're going to come up with some stupid charity scheme that siphoning money inefficiently to pay these exorbitant fees for poor people to go when you could do it all for so much less. Well, and the other thing too is it's the black market is not going to just be like for the fruits. It's going to be the black market is going to be there for all stages of that, including the fact that I forgot what I was going to say, but it's going to make it to where everybody's going to be able to have access to it. And I think get the same therapeutic value for the most part. But it's also going to encourage the black market part of the facilitators. If you think about it, there's already a lot of people think about that. If I can go to you and say, I got mushrooms. Yeah? You want to have a trip, right? And you don't have 3500. Okay, I'll come to your house. I'll be your shaman, your trips that are your whatever you want, your clinical facilitator. I don't care what you call it. Hell yeah, wear a horned helmet. Yeah, I'll wear a lab coat. That's facilitate that 6 hours for you. You pay me $500. Easy peasy. Why wouldn't I? So at least I know this guy has done mushrooms before, right? Especially if I don't know anybody from Adam. Bottom line, those are people already doing that. And so people have been doing that since the start of psychedelics. And there's people right now that if they recognize you and you recognize them and they're like, oh man, you seem like you've got some issues. Why don't you come out to my weird shack on the side and on the outskirts of Merlin and do mushrooms and hang out there for a day and you're like, okay, and then there's this weird, there's weird hippies is what I'm saying, but it's good if you luck into that kind of stuff, but now for any of the psychonauts out there that have done this, have done mushrooms a few times at least.

You're not going to get you're not going to get you're not, it's a good start. The first trip is a good start, I would say. And you may take a while to recover from it, but you're not usually done after one. I would say. No, I agree with you. And here's the deal. And I'm trying to be fair here. So I'm not trying to just hate, but they do say that you get on the micro dose side, you get a guided healing activity, whatever that means, and individual reflection time, what is that stuck in a room alone? I don't know. And you do get a discount for four more microdose Sessions. So if you're actually going to do therapy, they do give a discount. Now, on the medium and high dose, or I should say low medium and high dose, it includes a one hour prep session, a one hour experiential session I imagine that's the trip. And then a one hour integration. If you want to add extra, you can, but it doesn't say any discount for multiple sessions. High doses, which is bullshit. Now, here's the other thing. That is all not including the organ state tax. Oh no, there's tax on top of that. They didn't even include the tax. Are you kidding me? No, well, it's 15% taxes. They tack it in. They're like, it's how much it costs. Oh, cool. And they're like three is already in there. They lie to me. Fuck. So at 3500, they're going to show more. No, I don't think they'll do that. What's the percentage attacks on that? 15%. Now, we're still not done. Now, you still have any bought your mushrooms yet, bro this is just for the place.

So this is for Silicon Valley nerds with more money than scents to come up here and do a microdose with the fellows. Doesn't feel like they're adventuring. What the fuck? Okay, well, here's the deal. Level two, we're up to level two. The level two of this is if you're fancier. Okay, level two is still a microdose that's 400 milligrams to 800 milligrams. Two to

Yeah, yeah, yeah. And I wanted to sit down, you know, we have good discourse. So I want to sit down and talk to you about some things going on in the industry. The industry. I wanted to have you back on and see how this goes. So I know we didn't talk very much beforehand. No, so I'm just going to throw this stuff at you and see what you think. And you know that psychedelics on the frontier of Oregon, right? Yes, yes, we us in Colorado, we're kind of leading the way in slightly different ways, right? Yeah, and so organ this year is essentially open the psychedelic doors. Medically speaking, therapeutically speaking, I should say. And so I want to talk about that. So you know that Oregon has approved now. Both the testing facility, the facilitating place that you can do it. And also the cultivation. Oh, they've approved. So they've approved all three. Yes, there's yes. As of yesterday, I think it was just one, and that was the facilitating supply. Oh my God. The facilitating place where you can go and sit down and have it facilitate. Right. So we've got our mushroom clinic, right? Yes, the clinic. I guess it's called a clinic. They call it right. They call it let me see what they use for it. They use service center, a service center. So we would prove that, we approve the testing, and yes, the cultivation. Now, where do you think is the city that approved it first? Oh my God, the city. Oh, I get to guess in Oregon. Okay, so I would always always we want to say if we're from out of if we're from out of Oregon, we would want to say Portland, but that's not the right.

We at least got to show you this. We'll see about, yeah. My personal favorite on stage on camera. So my personal favorite is the orange turps, tangy. Oh God, I love it. By the way, this does not smell so orangey like you think it would. Oh. It's funky as fuck. It smells like bubble. Is that what the sumo part is? Smells like bubble. I smell oranges and funk as fuck. It smells like, you know the strap that goes down to crack. It smells like that probably smells. It smells like sweet funky oranges. To eat yourself. I'm diving in this one first. I like a little bit good ass crack. Hold on. And it's not like bad breath like mendo bad breath. It is straight up. Ass. Like poopy ass. No, it's not. Yeah, yeah. Yeah, it is. Yeah, it's like someone probably one of your patients. It's like two year old job. It's like cheesy. Cheesy funk, orangey. Go happy. Yes, and the fact that it is a 6 star, which is the top of their line, and it's a batter. Because I gotta say, 6 star batter is awesome. I love me some batter. And I like the 6 star, but if you hold them up comparatively, I would prefer the batter over the 6 star that's usually the under under the 6 star because the flavor is so there. So if you get the 6 star batter, oh, you scored. So dang it. He's a little happy with it now, guys. See he almost hit the camera. Look at that. Ah. I guess this is staying at home. I'm not going nowhere. Collaboration got some gardens. Shout out. All of our people. We love y'all. Messier. We can't wait till you back on the shelf. All right. Final one. Thanks for sticking in there. Didn't we say we were not getting an hour? No, we're at 28 minutes recording. Oh, okay. Oh, it's so good. It's delicious. Does not taste like ass taste like orange is. It smells like it has to taste like oranges I'm down. Always sets the way it always was. It's so good. Not tropicana like juice. But more like oranges, oranges. Oh, it's so good. I'm a double hit that one. You know what? Since he hadn't tried this and I have, I'm gonna let him finish this right off camera. We can be done when you're done love. So good. So good. Now here's my problem. I'm gonna finish with this. Really hard for me to choose between that GMO. Yeah. And this one. Two top tips of top favorites, but you know what? Those are the two best. I'm partial to the orange. I think you're more partial to the GMO. I don't know yet. I need to comparably do them, but that's just in the scoring. So I can't tell you right now what my top fave is. It's going to be between those two. I'm going to have to come to a decision by taking a lot more hits. I already know which ones are going to be my top two and that's going to be them. But my favorite, I don't know yet. Well, now that I've raised my tolerance so fucking high, I can't smoke a bowl now. I'm just not smoked for three days. Take some acid, reboot. It'll work.

"Anyways, so we're going to take some dabs. Yes, and I suppose that we should probably fill out the entry form before because here, let me see this. It's not fill out the entry point before. No, I don't want them to see this code. So that's what they send in the backpack. Judging access. It gives you a code to get in. So we didn't salt we did solvent concentrates. Solvent and solvent lists actually because they also gave us some solvent lists. Actually did one solvent list. So you want to show them what they got in order. We've got for contestant number one and two. We've got quantum alchemy, which we've got. I have not heard of them. I think they're up north in Portland. Yeah, we've got Tiger berry. And we've got gelato, which we may have dipped into the gelato. To be honest, we tried the gelato because we knew what to expect with the gelato. We knew what to expect if it was good. Definitely has the cushy earthy gelato. It's gelato. A little bit of sweetness to it, so it's good. Here's my favorite. Happy cabbage. We've got sumo oranges, 6 star high times cup. Now the happy cabbage is really good. So that's not usually common to have a 6 star happy cabbage. No. And it's expensive here. They're from up north and they do very well. Very well. We've also got northwest kind, haven't had too much of them in a while. Some live resin platinum sour diesel diamonds and sauce. We've got, these are all decibel dab, so we've got Pandora's box, which is a collaboration with funk. We've got, you know, you've got to love our funk extracts, GMO, which is, this is a live rosin. This one was a live batter that Pandora's box. This is a live rosin GMO. This is also a decibel labs. Decibel dab, sorry. Then banana punch, which is also a live rosin, which is a 9 to one 20 U live rosin. Then our other ones are capital cannabis. Which is marijuana extract live resin with davor. Says, I don't know what that means. We'll find out. We'll find out, yeah. Lemonade is one of them. And Don Draper is the other one. So we're going to check this out. I have not heard of that one yet. Haven't heard of either one of these have not heard of capital cannabis yet, but you know, there's a lot of extracts out there, so. You know, you forget? What? We forgot to do our shout out for mister unstoppable. We want to grab that while I talk. Okay, so while she's going to grab that, basically, this will be our episode for the week. You'll be able to catch this on YouTube, of course, probably watching it now. And Patreon will have the full unedited version. We did just get done with our harvest. I will be posting a pic of what we got, but we came out really good this year. We came out with 14 different strains in full jars. So high lady sativa here has now completed her part of the process, which is. Trimming. My hand hurts. Who makes that on this deal? It's my job and now my at home job. So anyways, you want to do shout out. This is just one of the four that I did get their creative creature. So at creative creature brewing, actually I just looked them up. Which I was already apparently following them just didn't realize I was until I got one. But how would you say that? Your Dale? You Dale. Yesterday, yodel and it's coconut laggard. We're going to go ahead and I'm going to give that one a try. Star Wars inspired lagger. It's all glare. I will take a picture. But we want to shout out to mister unstoppable grows. He's been a longtime listener and very active on our feeds and we appreciate him. He sent this as a gift. Good timing, too, because it's her birthday tomorrow. My dad was celebrating it tomorrow. And now we're celebrating it all weekend. Okay, so people get birthday weeks. I get a birthday before weekend. I'm just happy that she's gonna let me do acid. Yeah. Anyway, we appreciate it, mister unstoppable. She's gonna enjoy that real quick. I can not, this is gonna be her thing here. Finish the poor. No overflowing on the desk. You had a couple actually a few followers Patreon members actually that have been sending us stuff too. And although we've been requested not to shout them out, we do appreciate it. You know who you are. Hell yeah. They've sent a couple packages and very good stuff. Yes, those are definitely. They're going to enhance our to dos. They're going to enhance our growth for next year. So our us get to do this. And here's the deal. I'm going to have to on the mix. I'm going to have to this torch because it's loud. So I apologize right up front. I'll try to keep that low when the torch is on and then raise that back up. First of all, we're going to try, of course, is contestant number one, which is going to be the Tiger berry, which is an indica dominant hybrid. It says it's going to be 71.1. Percent. 71%. Now, what we're going to do is we would normally be logged into high times and doing this as we go, but you do have to do like full on descriptions and stuff. And we don't have time for that while we're doing a video. She's going to write it down and then we're going to go ahead and put that in ourselves. The deadline is the end of the month. So for all you other people out there around the area that are doing it, I hope you have fun. I kind of want to do flower, but I think concentrate is the best option. It was around a 180. It's like a 180 bucks for what 9 half grams? Yes. So 9 half grams, that's damn near 5 grams, 5 full grams of really good solvent solvent. So nonetheless, it seemed like it was a good deal. Got to give it a smell. I can't smell much. It does not quite taste smell like berry like I expected it to close it for a bit. It says it's the farna sense. You know, that's the odd thing, the furnaces. That new terpene. Farna sense. Have you heard of coming out? So by quantum alchemy and these, a lot of these things are places are from up north. So except for happy cabbage, it's even for us. This is kind of new. Yep, kind of disappointed that more southern Oregon people didn't enter, especially like Bo. Yeah. A lot of people don't, you know, might think it's a little commercial if southern Oregon more southern Oregon extractors would have entered their stuff in there. But anyway, so who's trying this one? You can go first. Okay, so C one. All right. You go. And just so you know, I'm a coffer, so I'm going to take small dabs. In an effort to not get too high on each dab and be honest about the reporting. And not cough and irritate the fuck out of you guys. Okay, you should grade that one.

"You know, there's a lot of speculation, especially from other people from other places like way back east and politicians and stuff saying that climate change is affecting all this. And I'm not here to listen, no, listen, I'm not here to debate climate change. That's not the conversation. What I'm telling you is living here for the last 45 years. Clear cutting needs to fucking happen. Is that we have gone so far away from cutting lumber and organ. And let me tell you, we are fucking full of trees, okay? We've got to take some. Okay, so back in the 80s. We replant. Well, back in the 80s, we had this big environmental thing kick in, like everywhere, and it also brought up this spotted owl issue, which literally closed down hundreds of mills in the state. It killed the economy for these loggers and stuff. And we haven't done anything since. We have a handful of mills that do all the work, not a lot of clear cutting, and I'm not saying clear cutting is the answer either. All I'm saying is we need forest fucking management. Yes, we need the undercutting. We know all the underbrush taken and all that dead shit, all that dry shit, get it cleared out because you know what? The animals suffer so much fucking worse from fire and flames and you know what you think those animals could get the fuck away from the fire these days? Well, here's the deal. So that's the thing. It went up and flames in seconds. There's okay. So there's arguments that it's going to affect the environment in those ways with animals and stuff like that. But the fact is this is right now mother nature has already shown us what the fuck that is. Mother nature doesn't even give a fuck about the humans or the houses in the world. When you're burning a whole state down, it won't matter if you're trying to save a species. It's already getting destroyed by fucking mother nature. So my point is without arguing about climate or any of that bullshit is we just need better forest management on the whole West Coast. Yeah. And we could use that. Any place that any place that has forests like that and it started to get built up. Exactly. And do yourselves a favor. And that will only lend itself to the economy and stuff. And honestly, and there's going to be arguments to this, but bottom line, I would rather see that material being used for whatever, then it just burning up, burning animals, burning the countryside, burning homes because we didn't do nothing with it. Now whether it's arsons or not. If it is arson, so what? They got a lot of fucking tender. If it's not arsons. And I do got to say, won't this open up so much more jobs? Thing is every year all we focus on is the fires coming. The fire is coming. How are we going to contain it? How are we going to control it? How are we going to handle it beforehand? Why don't we put it? We need to start doing that stuff. Smokey, the bear taught us what? Yeah. Only you can prove it. Only you could. Yes, there we go. Come on, we've been taught it for years. Well, and we're not going to prevent the fires from happening. We're just going to prevent them from being like this. Yeah. What scares me is like, we could have easily been somewhere that that would have affected us. And I can't imagine being homeless right now.

"This is where they have to be. We actually have the Josephine county expo, I believe, and the Jackson county expo with people that have been that have lost their homes and have been evacuated. It's really awesome to see. And it's all these people, like I said, more than I swear more than 80% of it has been cannabis people. I swear it's at least 90. Yeah. Everything else. Locally. Yeah, it's local. I have seen actually even people from west pen, you know, Margie, mama Marge, she ended up losing her home. She was in central point or not in central point. I'm sorry. She was in Phoenix, so she ended up losing her home. gave her money personally because they didn't even want to go through a GoFundMe. Yeah. They're like, no, I would rather give you the money myself rather than going through this. Which is awesome that they would just rather just take their own money and be like, here take it, please, you need it. Even JB, or organic. He's been auctioning seeds 200 a pack getting it and then giving it to families. It's just, I'm really glad to see that. And if you are local and you listen to us, consider those donations to go to those types of people that are collecting the money. Don't give it. Don't take this the wrong way, but don't give it to the big big places. Don't. You know? Because we're not going to see that. We're in Oregon. We're all more local anyways. Why would you want to go through a big organization? That's a thing. If you buy local pockets or shit anyways. If you're going to we all know this. If you're going to sell and buy local and do the whole local thing, we might as well also donate local. Charity should be local too. And you know what? The people who do listen to us and who are doing this? Thank you. Thank you. It's been amazing. And you know what?

"They just turned the water back to one drink that shit. Well, they did say you don't have to boil it anymore. Oh, cool. Yes, that was one of the first things. They said you don't have to boil it anymore. They said to flush your toilet 15 to 16 times. Just to flush everything out. Yeah. So, and I wonder like the national guards probably getting really fucking tired of Oregon. I know. But in Portland and now us, they're like, look guys, we're done being here. Fuck your state. Well, now they can't even breathe. Hazardous? I know. I don't know. All I know is this. You know, just when people, I'm talking around the West Coast, just when they thought that things couldn't get worse, they officially have people were really worried about wearing masks for the COVID and having all this issue. And I'm not going to wear a mask. And now you fucking have to. In fact, I get a migraine going out there even with a mask. I wear it the second I fucking get out of the car or but I have chronic migraines anyways. It's gotten a hair better, but I can say this, being lived here all my life, being through many, many August of forest fires, because that seems to be common thing here. I've never seen it this bad. I've never had it. I've never had a fire this close, even living up on starting creek when we had the fire that was, you know, it was pretty scary, especially it really looked like. I have so many people that lost their homes. We have no so many, and it's such it's really, really sad, but it is amazing to see our community getting together and doing what they have and doing what they are doing for everybody else. There are so many fundraisers or GoFundMe is going on right now. There's so many auctions going on for not just businesses, not just homes. It's for everything. It's for all as a community. They're trying to make it so it's all together. And yes,

"I don't know. They haven't reported back on their flavors yet, but it is pretty great. There's a lot of females with that plum chaco. We got a green one out there that's behind the purple one that we got. So, I don't know, it's crazy. Those winds also laid into the fire too. Oh, sure, sure. Before we go to that though, one last thing is that greenhouses want to let people know we've talked about this in past episodes too. No, I just want to mention though it does not take a lot of money to make these greenhouses. I mean, you can get fancies you want to get and spend hundreds of dollars, but I've never operated on large budgets. Right? So what we did, this is like 5 years ago is we found a car frame on sale. And it actually came with the top and everything too, but we just got rid of that or just put that aside. And this is a ten by 20 car frame, got it for what, 80 bucks. I like 85, yeah. And then you take the balance of that, you know, as far as the paracord and just the plastic. It's just slightly over. Got to throw this out there. We did get a really good price on that. are normally about a 150. A 130 to a 150. We got a really good price at buy mark for that. Well, I'm not saying that you shouldn't shop around. Yeah, shop around 'cause we found it for a really fucking good price. But you have a lot of 80 bucks. Generally greenhouses are gonna be operated from spring to fall mostly. Unless you get fancy ones that are insulated or fancy ones that you're gonna put in some fans and some heating and some and stuff like that. So we don't do that. So it's spring to fall. And spring to fall, you don't have to I mean, you can shop around during your off season, right? So we're coming into winter, so shop around all winter form. You should be able to find especially that time of year on sale. Well, that time of year or two because they do, that's when they mostly sell those car ports will sell for that because they want you to be able to cover your car during the winter time. Sure, then take some, I would recommend paracord because just because it's got some firmness and it won't really stretch. You can get static or dynamic and you just get static paracord. And it won't stretch. And so then you just

"Oh my God. It was the worst fucking shit ever, like seriously, there was two different strains. I don't even remember and I won't even blast out who it is, but they brought in two different things. And I walk in shortly after because shortly after they came, dropped it off, and I'm just like, Megan, what the fuck is that? I'm like, is that a moldy nug? Like, I was from me to you distance and I could tell it was mold. And then I get closer. I'm like, oh shit, Megan. I'm like, that's not even, I'm like, that's not just Brown mold. That's black mold. I found black mold, and then I went to the next bag, and the all the nugs in the bag were covered in mold. And I'm like, who the fuck brings this as a sample? Like, this was just a sample. This was a sample. They were trying to show a sample weed of what they wanted to bring into our store. Their quality control sucks. Fuck, do you think we are? Yeah, they're quality controls. Sucks. Yeah. It's a good thing you didn't buy pounds of this and then that's why we don't do it for that very reason is we always have to have samples. New farms, like if they want to bring in new stuff to us, we tell them they have to give a samples, even if it's just enough for Meghan and Ron, they have to bring samples or else we won't bring their stuff and we don't just go by look.
