J. Lohr Seven Oaks Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
"In this Dave from cheap linebarger dot com. And we've got another wind today to talk about like we usually do. Because that's what we do and day. We have one from PASA Robles. California central coast. It is the J.. Lower Seven Oaks Paso. Robles Cabernet Sauvignon. When young twenty-seven teen and J Laura is a family owned winery? They've been around since the seventies start out in Monterey California which is just the Aba north of Pasa Robles still on the central coast of California and Seven oaks in the name of this one is their first vineyard and Paso Robles The Path rebels winter came running in the eighties. Like I said the They start out in Monterey in the seventies and I think they also have a vineyard in Saint Helena and Napa too so they got to run the gamut for Winds in prices to they can get expensive and they can be affordable and this is actually affordable. I know and it's It's kind of a cool wind nine because it's mass produced. They make a lot of this wine. But they are using techniques. That you kind of get in more boutique wineries And it's it's kind of cool So you're getting the kind of the best of both worlds there's lot of processes taking place. Nice to make this Cabernet Sauvignon. And it's like eighty two percent Cabernet Sauvignon in there is petite Sarah Murillo petite ver- dough and. Oh what else is there I I. I forgot the last one. But you know it's it's mostly Cabernet Sauvignon which is the way it should be in Bordeaux with so almost never either one hundred percent. Cabernet Sauvignon hundred percent merlot. It's always a little bit to it. And when you add a little bit to it you can make all I can be. That's a very good thing. And I like Jay Lor and I wrote about this is that they're tasting notes in their website. Tell you about the wine and the Wine Company in writing about time I go through a lot of wind websites and auto tasty notes and you know you get so many of these a lifestyle the websites and you know it's it's you know we're we're all going to be yachts and drink with models and stuff it's kind of weird and and then there's all these tasting notes that are technical notes were supposed to tell you about the wildly. Don't really say what they're talking about. You know I always give a salary a pet pe- but they go it's It was aged on Oak. And it's like okay. What did you do there to put it on a barrel? Because I don't think that's how barrels work work with wine and like why don't you to say what you did NJ. Lord says what they did. That's pretty cool and thing is I learned something from other technical notes Mala Lactic Fermentation That is so almost all red wine goes through Mao lactic fermentation. They don't normally talk about. Chardonnay goes through lactic fermentation to and they usually talk about that because they because that makes you can taste the difference in Chardonnay. Don't or don't go at through a completely and with red wine since it's all of them do it just about. It's not as the biggest deal but it turns out that after they've fermented this governor seven Yang in stainless steel vats twenty percent of what into barrel and the other state in the VATS and they add in a don't remember the name of it But bacteria dried bacteria in the US yeast just for the fermentation and this is a fermentation to its Mel Lactic fermentation but the yeast feast on the Tart see mallow acid and ends up the byproduct of that is lactic acid which is like lactose milk and Um they they named what East they use. There's many different types that use different things and I learned that's how what Mala Lactic fermentation is. I knew new such a thing. I knew that you look for Chardonnay. Because if you have a little Oak GonNa want my lactic with your Chardonnay but you know I learned something. They said what they're doing another thing I liked about what they're doing. They used American Oak. you know you know for high end wines. It's all French and show can even tell you about which which forced it was coming from. You know there's a there's a pecking order for forests and the same the same species. That are in. France's is in Hungary area of Hungary and Slovakia and stuff but it's exact same tree just a little bit further inland. And oh no. It's not French here here. It's American hope for twelve months. Twenty two percent knew the rest is all you know used at least once or twice or whatever and the outcomes from Missouri and it comes from Minnesota a soda. They actually were proud of their oak and they were telling you what they was. They chose the oak to use. American barrels is much cheaper than a French. Okay barrel but it also gives out different flavors and you have to use it differently because it's got a wider grains. It can give more influence to the to the wine. But if you know what you're doing that's fine if you want those flavors that's fine too and if the if the ring comes at a less expensive costs and meal. I don't know too many wine drinkers who drink an inexpensive price winds. Who can pretty much tell you the difference between French Oak in American Oak? If it's done properly both really really good and here. They're telling you where the the forest was and that's like okay. I like that. He'll not rather than. Oh it was on oaken you know they just kind of like do double talk with the words not J. Lor Tony. What's going on? They told you that there was one hundred and fifteen degree heatwave in September and it was like. Oh that stresses the grapes out something fierce and but the it was a long. It didn't really change things the wines the vines were stressed but a the harvest and happened to October's time Howard's came around the grapeseed. Calm Tom down. And everything was fine and it was a pretty good bench so and it Kinda told you what other vendors warming they gave you information that you need to pick out wine now. Does everybody out. There are bothered to check out the technical notes and go beyond just the first page of the website of even look at that I. I don't know but I think you should because the more you know about something the more you can make an informed decision I mean I look it up. Put what I think is important in the wine reviews and you can get you know filtered through me for things but you know To by own self be true. I believe leave. It doesn't take that much it's A. It's an inner city you google. It takes five seconds and I'm gonNA drink this because this is a fairly classy cabinet. Seven young I'll go into that too even though this is a mass produced one they make a bunch of they. They're using upscale techniques and how to make it so you're getting kind of you're not getting a most ten dock avenues early plump juicy and bright and they taste good. I'm not complaining about them at all. But a different style style and this one's sleek in lean and it's get these stew of flavors. Nothing jumped out in the Tana's are there. But they're kinda sweet sweet they they might. You might feel on your tongue in the back of your throat. Just a little. That's what you're supposed to drink. Up Cabernet Sauvignon and you're getting kind of a uh-huh wine with with features from more expensive wines but at a very good price I think I thought for twelve it was on sale. That normally goes for it but it's not a expensive of line and so you're getting a best of both worlds one j Laura tell you what's going on with the one. They're being proud about what they're doing and see. What else is there? Oh and if you're looking for cabinets often young Napa Valley they're not going to Give you one at a price you want. Or they'll have great ones in sonoma's can be a little pricey if you WANNA value price sometimes bringing that something you're gonNA drink right now. PASA robles is really good place along with Lodi. That's Central Valley of central coast. You know that doesn't have the mystique stick. It doesn't have the you know doesn't have the name recognition though Pasa Robles at this getting that and also Washington state's really doing well that to where or you're getting quality drink it now. Cabernet Sauvignon Blanc at a pretty good price. Where you know the Napa Valley stopped? Gordo stuff They get the press. But that's kind of a whole different category when you just talking about men and when I got Monday night and it doesn't have to money you know if if it's good enough for Monday it's good enough for Saturday you know it's doesn't have to be this isn't just just a you know a Tuesday night one. You can drink this anyway. It's very good well-made wine but Those are the places you should be looking for for cabinet solving meal. Yeah Napa is famous or was famous and end more dough actually has a bunch of Uh winds under twenty dollars. But I'm talking more like the high end stuff stuff. Where you're talking about affordable Cabernet Sauvignon Ng Paso Robles Lodi Washington state and even Bordeaux is the way to be looking for? Because you can find really good ones really quality ones there for a very good price and I think that does it for me I I did too much talk. He's only got one sip in get some GET US UP TO SIP it after I'm done with this but there you go that's it for me. Keep it cheap. I don't know what we're doing next but we always do something next we have been. I think we're going on this summer. We'll be started our twelve year. So we've been doing this for a long time and we got over two thousand wine rems on our website so go in there and look for several hundred if you feel like it I yeah I mean you got to listen to me go on but there you go so audio scheme cheap in your day they the point.

The Federalist Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
"This is Dave from cheap wine. Finder dot com. And today, we have a companion podcast as opposed to some of our longer ones, and this is four a wine. We just put on the cheap wine finder dot com website seventeen hundred plus inexpensive wine reviews, and that's what we do in. Here's a podcast for the. Federalist Lodi cabernet sauvignon twenty sixteen and we're going to talk a little bit about. Cabernet sauvignon, and Lodi, and Lodi. In case you didn't know is located in the central valley of California, virtually every other wine area, you're aware of as either from the central coast, Santa Barbara's their Monterey. Pasa robles. There's all sorts of ones in between and then there's the north coast, which is sonoma's Napa lake Mendes. Sinoe. Everything is pretty much coastal. Lodi is in the central valley, that's inland, and it is able to grow grapes, and lots of them. There are big farmers, there who grow grapes. There's many people, that's what they do. They do a great job of growing grapes, in Lodi is because the San Pablo bay, which is the northern in most part of the San Francisco Bay goes inland. And there are there's a delta and there's river valleys that go into Lodi. And this cold water goes in and it keeps the nights. Cold days are warm, but the cool air from that even makes that more matter and a area that probably wouldn't be very good for growing grapes, way to warm is now actually very good place where they grow a lot of grapes, Lodi. The central valley, not the central coast and not the north coast and that brings us to cabernet solving. Y'all everybody when you hear cabernet sauvignon first thing, you, do you think about board door. Napa. Maybe while a while Washington, maybe on the high end stuff in Paso. Robles some, some Noma, and when you read about that what you're reading about, as basically restaurant wines, and collector wives, about the expensive stuff and maybe sonoma's, you get some more value priced wines in Columbia value. Do for cabernet sauvignon, but there is a lot of very well priced. Cabernet sauvignon coming out of Lodi. Normally you think of Loda as infantile territory, especially old vines of and yeah, they have a lot of that there. And it does very very well. But Lodi is actually a pretty good place for cabernet. When I opened up this bottle I wasn't too. Sure. Do I want a big red? I want a cab thinking, maybe I'll do you know white wine today or sparkling or something. But after the first sip of this is like, whoa, I kinda like this, and I'm gonna wanna sometime about sipping. I'm gonna grab a sip wine. Go. This is a juicy crowd-pleaser red cabernet sauvignon. I think it's like ninety three percent cabernet. There's like five percent merlot, and if I'm going off memory and then there's two percent of petite, Sarah. Merlot and cab Franck. And that's pretty par. For the course everywhere you go for cabernet one hundred percent. Cabinet is somewhat rare in Bordeaux. They're all blends, but it usually needs a little bit to soften it up to add a little more at another note, another flavor and at that does. Well, this, this is a, a jammy cabernet without going overboard. It's got. It's not as some spice in there. This really good flavors in there. I'm really kind of liking this and it's bright ripe fruit. I mean it's not over the top. You know, sometimes you got these fruit bombs, which are. Annoying after while the first tapes go pretty and after a while it's there's nothing there that hold you. And this one's got something there to hold you. Because I said, you know, everybody thinks of Napa or dole. These expensive places for expensive wines, and. Yeah. And cabernet falls in that category. But everyday why there's no reason why you can't drink cabernet on a Tuesday and have a really good one. I mean. You're not gonna put this away in a cellar for fifteen years. But this would go really well the steak on the grill. And it's got it's, it's a crowd pleaser. It's got flavor. It's really nice. It's got. You know it it got some sharp Labor's some sour flavors, some sweet flavors. It's smooths out of the end. It's got a huge finish that lasts a while, you know, it's like. This is pretty good. And there you go. It's the federalist Lodi cabinet solving on twenty sixteen. I think it was an oak for sixteen months. Mostly sixty five percent. Use thirty five percent news, so it's it's not over it. But the does have some mom dusty chocolate powder, flavors and has some those vanilla flavors. You get from oak. It's got the fruit. It's got some spice. It's get some interest to it. It's got a nice way to it. It's gonna get Smithfield. Mouth fields. Got some finish. It's the federalist Lodi. Cabernet sauvignon twenty sixteen. I'm happy. I picked this one today. I wasn't so sure I wanted to big wine and now I'm drinking it. I'm looking forward to turn this thing often drinking the rest of my glass. So that's it for me like us where you like your podcasts in give us stars or thumbs up or what? Whatever they do on those things if you think about it, and this is Dave saying, keep, it cheap over an out, and there will be one before too long again because always is so good. Bye for now.
If You See Kay Paso Robles Red 2016
"As Dave from cheap wine finder dot com. Get in for another another combatant gas broil upholstery. Just put up on the cheap wine. FINDER DOT COM website. And I know the last time I said we're GONNA put one more Halloween party wine on the website and I did go out looking for it but failed. I couldn't find anything that was scary enough. You know there'd be some gargoyles on a label and I think there is the castle of the devil or something from Chile. But that's a little bit too obvious and I ended up coming up with a wine that I thought was just straight up party one Then and when I give you the name of it you'll figure out what I'm talking about and and here it is. I mean it is a wine from Posso Rodas or Robles Sir. I don't speak English to also I'm not sure which one it is but it is called the. If you see que PASA robles also red blend. Now that was a sentence NAT Not Not just a letters is i. F. Y O U S E capital k. a. y. if you see Kay Yeah I know that means. I'm I'm not well. We all know what it means. It's kind of funny because go on the website and the label now is a strong girl bad ass. WHO's driving a car with us? You know the shifter hot ride. And she's all tied it up and she's K. and she's cool and this is the titles annals after a book by James Joyce from the twenty s like no if you see Kay means You know I mean sex but he has what it means. L. Gets the name that will make schoolboys giggle. When you tell them what what you're drinking and bought and bought it and brought it at home and I started looking up some things and I'm not sure if he still with this one because this one's been around for good ten years and the original winemaker Acre Made his name making two hundred and fifty dollar cult wines. You'll limited edition mailing list winds only you know only only five hundred cases of wines from Napa Valley and he was like a hot shot and this was a wine that he put together that would be affordable affordable so. This was someone who knew it. The heke was doing and made this out of Paso Robles in ten years ago was still you know a little bit of unknown mean people know pasta robos in the wine. Prices have gone up. It's no longer. Now you still get bargains. It's not as easy and this was a wind. Should sell for about seventeen and it's in the same kind of of vein as the prisoner. I N. prisoner. I think I've seen for thirty thirty five. Used to be around forty five so this was at a because it's from possibly the prisoner there was from Napa. And what have you. There was a price differential. And I like David any day the guy behind the prisoner and those winds now I think that guy really knows his stuff but Um this if you see Kay had a messing around here this is this is a solid one. This is a well well made wine. I mean With the style might not be. Your style is big and bold and it's ripe and juicy but if you can get behind that this is a really good example of that style and I bought it. You know if you see Kay you bring it to a party. It's got a cool label. It's got this weird shaped bottle that weird but it's thinner that a normal wine bottle and in the labels very vertical thing Canada looks like Some kind of some kind of wall-painting finding some cool neighborhood on the label I mean it's doesn't look like the stuff is called if you see Kay probably not as cool to call a why now was in two thousand nine O. N. O.. There's a Song Isla. Aw I looked it up on an apple music. It's from April wine that was called. If you see Kay if you see Kay Tiller I love her till our neater so you can play along the car driving someplace but this is a really really good party wine. It's it's not inexpensive. You can take someone's aunt's house. Seventeen dollars legit. They taste it. And it's in the prisoner vein of things that the thirty five forty dollars Napa time and I'm GonNa take a SIP because I've been talking about it and I haven't been drinking it and I don't know who made it because the original winemakers long ago I don't know if he's still there but this is one of those wines even tell on our on a really big bold wine nine that is controlled like whoa like whoever made this wine knew what they were doing and the the very best of the Australian winds ends from six seven eight nine ten name share a long ago. It is where that way to where they would go over they would go almost over the top never quite go over the top and and just walking them line as you drank. It was like the winemaker. Did this type rope walk in. That vein is not that largest not that big. It's not that bolts not that spicy but it is a large wind specially today standards and it's delicious. It's really tastes good. And it's called if you see. Kay Amy if you bring it over to a party. It's going to cause a Ruckus in until they drink it. And they gotta like get and so not exactly Halloween one. But we're going into the Party season and You know it's it's it's a good choice for a party in seventeen dollars. You're I mean you don't want to bring it a cool eight dollar wine two party A.. Could but you know you wanNA bring something a little bit more expensive. And this is from a small section one of inland Paso Robles all hills and valleys. So it's all from a You know sort of Ohio Heil obation Bachchan in the valley and so it's a mixture of that fruit it's mostly Cabernet. Sauvignon and then it's got petite Surra Zinfandel and petite not Verdun and at possible is a great place. For a Cabernet Sauvignon Zinfandel. They really do well there. In petite. Verdun Verdun show is one of the Bordeaux grapes. It's always like one or two percent of the Bordeaux blends always very small part of those blends. That's because because it doesn't quite get ripe enough in Bordeaux to have more in there but you put it in California and it gets plenty ripe and then Petite Sarai is the EH. It's an every blend out there. It's it's the you know. The secret weapon of Red Blends Bennett also really goes well Zinfandel and I I think they put it in. Miami's peed on the wire. Take another little sip just because I'm coming to the end. There's no reason not to take a SIP. So there you go. It's a party if not exactly a Halloween party won. Uh It tastes great. It has you know it's it's one of those wines that is big and bold and rich and ripe and extracted extracted and might be sweet side but it doesn't taste that way. I mean. Imagine if I knew what the sugar level wasn't here it'd be like Oh that's kind kind of hiring I thought but it's so controlled within the city. which the city actually is really well balanced? You don't know what's there Tannin's are bounced to you. Don't really taste them. But I imagine the city balances also. I'm not thinking I'm drinking a sweet wine though. It might be a touch on the sweet side but it's under ripen juicy and luscious in the delicious the side and that's a good side to be on when you're at a party and that's it for me the if you see Kay Tiller I need a toll I love you. That's the words the song and this is a very good PASA robles. Red Blend and it's everywhere should be well everywhere about seventeen dollars start being on sale. Come November December if it'd be a bargain if you want the prisoner you don't WanNa pay the thirty five bucks. I think this might be a good choice. Good choice to try something in the same vein but a little bit different. And that's that's it for me audio spill something for too long. We're going to start going upscale with November and more bubbly and more maybe a little more expensive ones just because that's

All admitted. i did not know much about investing in wine prior to this episode. But i was so curious and i think that is because we typically talk about investing in things we know already stocks bonds mutual funds. Etf's the regular cast of characters but investing in alternative assets. Like wine can be a really good way of diversifying. Your portfolio aka. Just not putting all your money in one basket so talking to anthony was a blast. He is a repeat entrepreneur. Who successfully built insult to companies. On roy now and know your vc. All by the age of twenty two he also held leadership positions at crypto currency platform blocked folio and is on a board member of rate my investor. But on top of that anthony suffered a injury in two thousand sixteen. That completely changed. His life shifted his priorities and led to the creation of his third company. Vino vast. yeah. I definitely would not put anthony in the slacker category for sure. So he's on this episode sharing his story of entrepreneurship. How he came up with the idea. For vino vast and why investing in wind might just make sense and let's face it worst case scenario. You've got some great wine to drink. I will definitely toast to that. Anthony i am so excited to have you join us on the podcast and talk about one of my favorite subjects wine. So thank you so much for being here. Thank you so much for having me. I don't normally start out with someone story. But i think this is really important. I you and i both have something. in common. a life changing health experience. My audience knows. I became deaf in my left ear after an accident about two years ago. And and rod to really change how i do things especially being a podcast or and you also suffered a life changing injury so i wanna go back to twenty sixteen if we can. I know you had received this one hundred thousand dollar grant from from our cuban you dropped out of. Usc life was looking good. You went to a party in vegas and dove into a pool and hit your head and became paralyzed from the neck down. And i have to imagine that is incredibly life changing and this may sound like a crazy question but you know how did that change your life. How that really change your trajectory thing for me. A accident really just completely made me realize what the real priorities in life were. I was i was i was young. I was kind of feeling on top of the world with just leaving college and starting a new business in getting funding from a lot of exciting investors. And to me it was. It was the most exciting on in my life Having that injury sustained a spinal cord injury becoming a quadriplegic. Aunt really really losing everything. I knew housing. That health is the most important thing in life when when you can't even breathe on your own after depend on a ventilator and you can't even do something as basic as feed yourself or Herself it definitely puts things since perspective on. What's what's truly important absolutely. I couldn't agree more. i think. Obviously the t the time. We're in right now. We all know that health is is really paramount. And i can imagine that it would be so hard i mean you you. You had to basically relearn a lot of things and the process of going through that you. What kind of mindset did you have to put yourself in to go from that accident to switching back into like entrepreneur mode and chasing down ideas. What was that process like for you. I think for me. The lucky thing was even though i lost a law in terms of my physical abilities. The accident heard anything up in my head. Help trapped in my own body for a long time when i was in the rehab facility even though my every day was spent in physical therapy occupational therapy every night zang in bed. All the the goal things that i could potentially do and Luckily with technologies. Still able to do a lot of the things that i used to do. So in in in some in some ways. This was kind of a distraction from the every day in the trauma that had happened. It also became a form of therapy for me to be able to not just focus on what was going on in the real life and know what i could move what it couldn't move in the gym and also be able to have something else to focus on my business time Yeah that makes sense. What is it like to get one hundred thousand dollar grant from our us. So the grant was actually from peter thiel oh this program the till dollar ships so It was it was highs. Lead something that was really really crazy to me because when i got to college i had no intention of dropping out i wanted to finish the four years. Maybe go get an nba afterwards. Then maybe start a business that was really the path my mind and then here i just with the deal had learned about a program. Not only are they going to give you money. It also gave access to a community of other young entrepreneurs who had also dropped out of school wetherby high school or college and also pursuing their dreams. Really really were able to find community find a lot of reassurance in that i was not throwing away my career by dropping out of college i follow erling something that you know as a teenager. I didn't know there's gonna be a big business or not so It was really. I think a prospective changing moment for me checks of really being able to believe in myself and seeing that it has done before by other Other people that were close my age. What i what a cool experience. I mean this is a bit of a tangent but i'm curious what do you think two people listening You know there's a lot of talk of weather. College degrees are worth what they used to be worth. You know getting an mba. Spending that much money is it worth like. How do you rationalize that out when you when you have big ideas but you also feel maybe like the obligation of of going to school. That's a that's a loaded question. I realize my college experience. I met my now. Theon stay in college at mets on my best friends there. And i think the non-academic parts of college i really can't be replaced. The a the gatherings of friends the spontaneity the school spirit. I went to a big football school. Usc so all of that. So that i think you really can't replace anywhere else. But i think the actual learning audited Especially with now proving that the pandemic online classes and soft directed. Learning is is really. I think a part of the future and can offer so much more flexibility accessibility. Especially if you're not going into a field like you know physical therapy or medicine. You actually need to be working with your hands in person with other callings repeaters. i think especially. If you're starting a business you really don't need to go to class or college to be able to become successful. yeah. I like that advice. I knew that was a loaded question. But but i think it's great because i think it's different perspectives for for people to think about. I mean obviously. The student loan debt crisis here in the united states. You know a lot of people are question marks over. Is this really worth it. Is it worth it to take out hundred thousand dollars in debt and be a slave to my debt when maybe there's another path and i think maybe if anything's exciting coming out of this time we've all been in is learning that there are other opportunities to learn. So i think that's just I don't know i just. I love different perspectives and in different ways to think about it and also sharing stories that you know you had no intention of dropping out but but life sort of unfolded this way and think a lot of people. There's when there's a big opportunity like a one hundred thousand dollars job out of school. Decide that you just gotta take a school. Always be there if you want to go back. Yeah that would definitely be a great side. Well we're here to talk about your third company. Vina vest which is investing in wind is a concept. I don't know a lot about. But i definitely loved drinking wine so you know. I was looking around doing a little poking before our interview and i saw on the website. It says that you know wine consistently outperforms other alternative assets. Which is really interesting to me. So maybe just let's start with like what makes wine good investment. That's a great question. I think the reason why wine is a good investment really really is on its stability. Some bottles of wine actually most balls wanted. Say the ones that you see at the supermarket or grocery store there. They're mass-produce turns be consumed right away but other is a session but lines that are produced on the higher end where they actually do get better over time. Right we're all familiar with the the adage of aging five wine. And it's a it's for a reason and that's why people wine-cellars that's why people want to be able to hold onto a bottle for maybe ten twenty thirty years and open it at a later point because it is better and as it better it also gets more rare. I the year. Twenty twenty thousand bottles are produced in particular winery by the u. Twenty twenty die for example. There's probably a lot last. People are drinking wine and you can never on so just by pure supply and demand as the supply gets constraints and as the actual tangible value of the bottle goes up. You automatically get this price appreciation and you pressurization. Every year right wineries producing a every single year pretty much on the dot so you also get that predictibility when it comes to performance year over year. I think those are the two main things that make line. Really attractive at steady alternative. Asa in talking about assets You know just for listeners. Who may not really understand what that means you know. Why would you diversify your investment portfolio your retirement portfolio whatever it might be with alternative assets like. What's the purpose of doing that. I think can be be boiled down to just not putting all your eggs basket. Once you're in a stage where you do have your your traditional stock portfolio or bonds it's important to diversify because even though you're diversifying within stocks when the stock market crashes. They are all correlated to each other so having something for a rainy day adding something that can produce returns that are not correlated to what's happening in the stock market isn't horton A cornerstone i think wealth creation wealth preservation. I remember reading a report. i think. Produced by blackrock that was talking about the portfolio allocations of someone. Who's ultra high net worth individuals million dollars. Yeah we're up in just a regular retail investor and the main difference was their allocations alternate bassett's so whether that be real estate or golder private investments or wine all alter high net worth individuals are high net worth individuals. Have a much higher allocations these alternative assets because they realized that creating wealth is not just about gaining but it's also about protecting your losses and having differentiated streams of gains to be able to last for decades. Yeah i mean. One hundred percent thought is anyone i've worked with in the past that. Does you know very large a stay. Let's say one hundred million dollars. Plus i mean that's really how they look at at wealth. Creation is thinking about it in lots of different ways and thinking outside the box. And i think That's what's particularly interesting about wine. Investing to me's are you know. How did you come up with this idea for vito vest. There's nothing like that friday. Feeling the minute.

I'm pronouncing that right. Hi sean. i'm so grateful that i found your podcast. It's truly helped me shape. The way of you my financial future i have a question about my 401k. And i'm fairly new to your community. So i apologize if this is already been answer. I recently sat down with our 401k. Enrollment rep and was told that the best option for me as a young professional would be to invest my funds into an aggressive stock. I invest six percent into the stock with each paycheck three percent for me and the other three percent for my company matches. My question is is an aggressive stock. A smart move to my understanding. It will fluctuate depending on the market. Which doesn't necessarily sound safe to me. Do you agree that this is a good choice. For young professionals like myself. I spoke with a few other younger employees in my office and they chose the same plan. I'm not sure if that's a smart move. Thank you in advance. This is a great question. Like an welcome to the podcast to the community. Were so excited to have you know. Question is a bad question. And i'm happy to answer any question a million times over so i i'm just going to say whoa. Whoa whoa i off again. I don't know a lot of the behind the scene details except what. You've just told me here but no one should pick your investment choices for you. Only you can decide how much risk you're willing to take on again. There's not a lot of info that i have in this question. But whether it's an aggressive stock or fund. I'm not quite sure. I'm curious about what this aggressive stock quote unquote is made up of if it's a tax if it's a small cap international if it's general s and p five hundred index fund. So there's a lot of details. I don't know but let me give you some things to think about. I want you to think about the amount of risk that you really feel. Comfy with you can sleep with roster head on a pillow at night and also think about. How would you feel the stock market. Lost twenty percent thirty percent forty percent of value in your stock went down accordingly. Now of course. If you're young enough you can weather some of these storms and come out on the right side. And that's what would have happened if you would have invested in two zero nine until now of course you would have been so happy that you actually stayed in the market but i want you to figure out how risky you want to be in. There are a ton of online risk tolerance questionnaires. That can help you. But just because some of your work colleagues might have chosen to invest in. This fun doesn't necessarily mean that's the right one for you. You might not feel comfortable without much risk and so someone automatically telling you that this is what you should invest in. I feel really nervous about that. I mean i understand that they might be guiding you but you also have to say okay. I understand that but let me actually think about this. Let me look behind the scenes. Let me figure out if this is right for me. One thing i want you to look at also are the fees in these different funds that are being offered to you. It will be listed as something called an expense ratio and the general consensus is to stick with funds with an expense ratio of one percent or less. Oh the closer to zero the better. But but i want you again to i to line up with choosing based off near risk tolerance than i want you to look at the expense ratio. What are the fees in these particular funds or fund. That you choose another question is when would you need this money. So i understand that you're young. You have a longtime horizon to invest and typically. The sentiment is the longer time horizon. You have the riskier you can be. But that doesn't mean that you have to be if you don't feel comfortable with that and also suggest some diversification not just invest in one fund or a one stock but look for a couple of different funds in different sectors to try and mitigate risk and really diversify your investments. So that's another thing. I want you to think about is look at all of your choices and see if you could pick a couple of different choices in different sectors so that you have that ultimate diversification so like an. I hope that's helped you again. I just want to emphasize that just because someone is suggesting this to you or your colleagues are suggesting that they might have invested in this particular fund doesn't mean not a house to work for you so figure out the risk tolerance figure out how risky you wanna be figure out what you're comfortable with. That's the most important piece of this. Then you figure out which stocker funds align with that risk tolerance view of an. Ask sean at question. Just it's easy head on over to the lincoln the show. Now it's over to our website and money. Podcast dot com. And you'll find the ask sean spot right on. The homepage will be tackling and ask. Shana question every tuesday. And i want to help you answer your questions even if you want me to list you as anonymous so it was really when i came across an article that wall street journal pointing out that exact fact that you mentioned earlier that wine outperforms those other assets in the stock market. That little tidbit has sent me down rabbit hoax like way. I'd all our wine appreciates with age but never really puts into together in my head was able to really seriously think about is something that i could actually bested. When i dug deeper into the space i realized that there were a lotta bears. Entry regular people like me. Who really didn't have any expertise or connections in the wine industry from getting started a number number one on that list of barriers access. Even out of the money is for these high end wines. You needed the on a mailing list or weightless no something evine on yet allegations because the supplies are so small compared to the second barrier that i've found storage most Most people don't have massive. Wine cellars at their home. And don't want to be able to deal with the logistics of shipping winds all around the world to properly acquire in store manage the wire because if anyone Who's who's doing the assailant wine can tell you the condition of the wine. How it's been stored condition temperature. Humidity is super so that was another barrier identified and then the final thing i think was just transparency and clarity in the market. I'm sure most people have had the experience of even dining at two different restaurants in for the same ball of line to cost drastically different prices because no one really knows what the true value of a bottle of wine is from place to place. So with those varies in mind. I i just not. There should be a better solution. Wine is something that i think so. Many people can connect with on a passion level. And also just when you look at it purely from a number standpoint with it being an asset. It's pretty attractive that there's not many other assets like Confine an easier way to be able to streamline these areas in costs through technology. I think a lot more people cannons should become investors. Yeah so i've i've so many follow questions but A walk me through the technology aspect like how you how you formulated a way or what you do specifically that helps you know someone utilize technology to get get around these barriers. So we start off with a simple personalization quiz so i said. Do you want to come on the website. First of all we'd ask you. How long are you looking at holding wine for his. There's different winds pick for you if you're looking for a five year old versus a twenty year old secondly we would that ask for your risk appetite so just like stocks. Different wines may be a little bit more like your blue chips. Amazon's in apple's steady unstable. But there's also maybe more of your verging markets at winds from a new region or new winemaker. Little bit more speculative but can can have a lot of upside And then the final thing is the dollar amount that you want to buy in invest align because there are winds that are a couple hundred dollars or line center tens of thousands of dollars so it depending on. Your budget is also being able to help us decide. What is the right. Mix of winds that we can buy for you as you're wine portfolio so to say so we take all those inputs in we've built on algorithm that can give you a smart personalized recommendation on those winds and what we do next door platform as all the heavy lifting so acquiring those wines at the best possible mark prices actually looking at the condition of them making sure that their authentic in excellent condition and then also storing insuring that wine. So that if anything happens to it under our storage and outdoor watch you actually still do have replacement value in the market value. That why so. We really able to streamline all that at the click of a few buttons end someone brand new to the wind Really doesn't need to invest in any sort of physical infrastructure other than other than just logging onto our website and doing their portfolio so who who then does value the wine like. How does it get. How does it get a terminal value. At how do you figure out whether that value increases are doesn't increase like. How does that work adds a question. I also something that we've retry very very hard to help solve and bring into the twenty first century because would these wines especially the ones that were talking about that are worth investing in. They have an active secondary market. Already of these winds are being bought and sold for various reasons whether it be to another collector or asset edge or to a restaurant ruben. A lotta times sold multiple times on on the secondary. The problem today is that there's so many secondary markets in the world. There's there's already multiple auction houses. There's multiple wine exchanges already in different continents so there are active bids offers being put out on the market every single day for these flights what we do is we don't see our job as setting the price in determining value what we do is aggravate the existing activity in the market and able to still that data in it clarified way to the consumers that know what other people are buying and selling it for on this already active but fragmented secondary market Okay okay very interesting so my next question is i. How do you so-fi if i bought stock in a company and being the stock went up i decided to sell the stock. I mean you know pretty familiar with that sort of transaction when it comes to wine how would i know like when is the right time to south wine or my holding onto the wine for a long period of time. How does that work. I think similar to most stocks. It's a it's it's going to have the best results as a a medium to long-term asset reason being it just takes time for the wines age to get better. It also takes nine for global consumption to do its work so we usually see the best results over five to fifteen year time period and as more of a meinhold strategy rather than tracks time a different events in the arket given that the wine world is slower a little bit less volatile there also aren't that many catalysts that happen on a day to day basis that can really drastically affect the price. So that's what we really see. In the market is people are buying and holding onto it waiting for the winds mature and then selling it off at a higher price in the future interesting so i would assume that. Maybe there aren't too many inherent risks of than just. You know like you said you have to hold on for a period of time. I mean i guess are the risk just that something could happen to the bottle or that may be not as good. I don't know what are some of the risks that you on the head. I think the storage condition of that wine when you hold onto it is probably the biggest risk is if you don't have professionally outsource third party storage. What if what if you move right or you may seize on or the heat's on right so many things can happen to somebody's home back can affect the condition of the bottles Whereas if you outsource it in allow a company like us to handle it. That part of the equation is dearest out. I think the other risk is just what right. If you if you believe that a certain region or a certain winery is gonna go out of style or change ownership. Something may happen. I think that's also another inherent risk of investing in almost anything. Yeah and you mentioned of course like you could buy. I mean just like you could in the store right. We could buy a less expensive bottle of wine. We could buy more expensive bottle wine raw veasley hoping we spend more it's a better quality wine etc etc doesn't always run that way but So if somebody is thinking about investing wine is it logical then to assume that maybe if you buy you know if you buy but the smaller amount of money maybe your return isn't as great as if you're buying with the larger portion of money or how. How do the returns work. Yeah that's a great question. I think that's something that a is is different in the white investing world than the stock world because now you know woodstock's Forms are allowing fractional investing. So right you can buy a share of a expensive stock. Like tesla or amazon. I'm with the wine ruled. It's it's not that sophisticated yet so there are bottles that were thousands of dollars that. If you're only investing say a thousand dollars you might not get access to so we are seeing that. Investors to a certain threshold are seeing better returns by investing larger dollar amounts just because they had access to a more winds to be able to invest busted. Okay now are at that makes sense. I'm curious as as Has this changed. How you Enjoy wine just personally. Do you think about why now from a totally different perspective i. It's hard but i do. Try to keep my drinking practices separate from my us. The line that i think this is a much much cheaper than the i best because other wind that i like to consume in for personal taste is completely separate than what i think. We'll go up value. Get that's a really good point alike died but that also like begs the question so i'm investing in wide. I'm assuming that this bottle of wine or however many bottles of wine my actually never be enjoyed like it might not actually ever be sipped right. I mean this is. This is literally like a commodity that. I'm that i'm investing in that eventually. All cell somewhere but i mean do do a lot of these bottles. Just never get Enjoyed by by an actual consumer the end of the day. wine is meant to be enjoyed. So if it's not you it's going to be someone else down the line that's gonna be buying it for consumption purposes so a lot of clouds hines were will sell to a high pressure bill by you. Know large allocation align directly. Going to be selling it to a consumer at some point in the future right for a much higher price the so you've obviously been so successful With your different entrepreneurial ventures a what's the ultimate goal of vast. Like where do you. Where do you see it going in. The next few years of us has a pretty special place in my heart. I think just because of the passion for why that is developed and i've always been really keen on being able to provide access in charge of investments. I think that everybody should have the same amount of access to something that can help them. Create wealth. And i think at help solve a lot of the problems with with wealth inequality so i think by what we're doing taking something that was traditionally buried very exclusive invade very expensive to start off with it dramatically decreasing those barriers in also allowing people to invest in something. They're passionate about one to me. That's a lot of thought. So i feel really lucky to be able to work on this. I want to grow it launcher. Let's so exciting. Well i i would love to sort of wrap up. I mean you have so much. Experience entrepreneurial side obviously Personal experience that you went through those life changing. What is like you know. Maybe one or two like top money tips. That you've learned through like all of these experiences in life that you love to share and have someone else Maybe learn these things and not have to go through them personally. That's a good question. I'd say instill by no means an expert autumn. Best thing definitely a lot of mistakes myself but i think it's important i think to diversify but not over diversify. I think a lot of people may take it too literally to a little bit too much shitty extreme and it's honestly a little bit tough to be able to keep track of too many investments. So i had saved for folks who are just getting started out with maybe investing outside of the stock market. A something that you believe in something that you're interested in wanna spend time in whether it be investing real estate or maybe crypto or may be wine for example and i think so. Start off that sort of alternative investing side. It's good to have something that you're also dash about. Yeah i love that while it's definitely it's definitely piqued my interest like. I said i didn't know a lot about it. And i've just learned a lot in the last last half hour or so for those listening. That are super interested. I tell us. Where do we go to connect with you to learn more about veena vast investing in wine. Yeah so our website as its best dot co. i'm an we're always always willing to really accessible.

Meringue Chardonnay Edna Valley 2018
"Hey Dave cheap wine fighter dot com today today Th another wine review that goes along with the written review on the cheap wine fighter dot com website which we've been doing for going on twelve twelve years and have a couple of thousand reviews on there. We been busy little bees and out day. It's a Chardonnay seven ninety nine Chardonnay. Nathan the Edna Valley Seventy nine hundred trader. Joe's has called the Meringue Chardonnay Edna Valley Chardonnay 2018 Edna Valley. If you do not know is south of Pasa Robles in the central coast. Abby a law on the coast And it is a league cool area. It's really great for growing Chardonnay and Pinot Noir Little Richer Chardonnay. As you know the. It's not that AH farther north than Los Angeles but it is coastal does get cool breezes so you get maybe a little. Richard may be riper but still will in the proper climate range You know some of the the really famous Pinot Noir Chardonnay growing areas is kind of cool all all the time and never really warm up and central coast a little bit different but you get a little richer and that's not a bad thing and this is a single. Aba Chard name Seven ninety nine Meringue I don't know who made it This is meringue wine company. which is you know when they contract wine? They kind of make a name for wine. Supposed to know really or you know because it comes and cheaper at the grave spike come from this vineyard this winery and a a lot of wineries have contract sections other winery. They would make wines for Their own lines will make wine for somebody else. You know. You can't really go from there because it's not the same as their own wines or make it for somebody else but you know you get their know-how and like I said this is a Chardonnay and from Edna Lavallee and it's pretty good for seven ninety nine and I was thinking when I was drinking at that five years ago. You wouldn't get a Chardonnay for sub ten dollars this complex. It's got Malak Dick on lease and it's got some sort of oak aging how. I don't know what it is. which way or there's barrel of the some other way to get oak in there but it's kind of a complex Chardonnay which is is kind of Nice Nets kind of California chardonnays about but it's got rounded flavors in a wide range of flavors neighbors? I got some cream to it. It's got Bonilla you know it's got His catt pineapple grapefruit and lemon and apple. And it's it's pretty good and let me take a SIP We go tastings at a liquor store. It was a big tasting. It would have maybe twenty stations with you know three four winds each station nation. And one thing I would hear all the time of somebody would say I don't like Chardonnay was like no you don't get it. Chardonnay isn't a one thing. Every single Shard name is different. There's all sorts of different things you do to it like a salvation. BONKER UP UNICREDITO. They they make those as simply as possible specially the lower price range and that's great because it's bright fruity or citrus You know they got great noses their their light it needs to drink and that does those grapes fine but Chardonnay even on the same price ranges those tends to be more complex Mala now lactic fermentation is something they do in red wine all the time in happens and chardonnet and that changes the actually put bacteria in into the juice and the changes Thing is The mallow acid to lactic tat fasten so you get a rounded rather tart so le more fruit than citrus More milk easiest and get kind of creamy sometimes and when they make when they don't have to do the whole thing and they they do these wise sometimes in lots other chardonnays and you know maybe twenty percent has Mola Malacca. Eighty percent has doesn't matter. They can donate percentage. They want then they do some some sort of oak aging. They can either do barrels new barrels or use barrels. Because you can use the a barrel empire oaken Vos too would it for maybe three or four fills with a shorter period of time. A lot of things you could get more use out of oak because some of these winds. Are you know the ten dollar Ranger in oak for four months or six months where he used to be an year year and a half. You know it's a shorter length of time us more but just the same. Same if you're using barrels is used as a you know a use barrel gives off less if you're putting staves in a let him toasted into a VAT debt gets flavor in there too which is fine. You're not really listen drinking now winds. It doesn't really matter how the gets there. You're not really paying for the Oak. So they get it in there and gives you the flavors you like. That's a good thing. They're really good at it now. And then there's on lease on leases worthy keep them dead he's from the fermentation maybe bits and pieces of ever left over from the grapes in the VAT as it ages and if you stir it starts to get creamy I mean you can like really stir the heck out of it or you're gonNA start a little but you get this cream Est.. To and plus it gives a nutty salty flavor to it it gives a structure and adds a little bit of little bit of a little bit umph to the wine. And but so there's different things you can do in different proportions and then another thing this You know is the grapes. Election didn't get to the grapes election in Los Angeles California label. This one's Edna values from a very small section of central coast but MUC- chard natives California. That might be some grapes from coastal well Monterey then some other grapes from valley and Lodi would just inland and then maybe some from a hillside in Mendocino each scrapes. Going to be different. But you know there still value priced wines and they put that together with all the different percentages of of Mel Lactic and Oak and everything. And there's infinite but at number of percentage of things you can do it still chardonnay. But there's everybody's got their own little recipe so when you go to wine tasting and don't say I don't like Chardonnay. 'cause everyone's different so you know it's kind of like yelp people there I can do here. So they're so Chardonnay even this little seventy-nine Chardonnay and since trader Joe's gets pays a front They they have aggressive pricing and the store the wind brings people in They don't have all the distribution costs have distribution costs. You can't get rid of the distribution bution but They don't have any other distributor doesn't have people out in the street you know. Most distributors have really talented Well educated educated sales people out selling their wines. You don't need that at trader Joe's Trader Joe's does the marketing and I'll bet that cuts big chunk of things so this isn't really it's seven ninety nine. It's probably if it was selling in a store would be several bucks more Maybe Taliban twelve you know it's hard to say one way or the other Because they're you know. I don't know where the grapes come from. There's a lot of variables so this you only get a seventy nine trader Joe's Wine mm-hmm sometimes. It is an actually a seventy nine one. Sometimes it's more and you don't really know because they don't tell you but with this all it's going on with the with the malpractice on on lease and whatever oak aging in there There is a lot going on a very small area. Usually the smallest area the higher Higher the price gets you know. And Edna Valley is a good place for Chardonnay. But it's still a cheap line if you hadn't had a novelli sharpness of great way to check. Check it out and said it is a Richard Style and it was tough. Labor's going on and I'm GONNA take another SIP and I'm almost done here. You got a good mouth field. I don't think it's full elected fermentation because there is some things still going on Anson handsome round things so might be one of those where percentage of it went through lactic fermentation of the end. Maybe it didn't and then there's that salty thing going on with annelies but they took some time to make this wine this is not just a throwaway it tastes good and there you go. It's you know five five years ago you wouldn't get a Chardonnay for seventy nine. That's complicating this tasty and a good wide. I recommended you can't beat the price and that's it for me. We got other things coming up. I think the fourteenth Bhagat Valentine's Day and I might do some persective and maybe some sweet wines or something meet that because it's coming up pretty quick and we'll work on that and audio for now Keep a cheap. And I'll be talking everybody in a bit. Bye Bye
Paso Dragon Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
"And. Day. Cheap light, FINDER DOT com. Again. Always. Doing, another. PODCAST on a review today that she wanted dot com websites at trader Joe's wine seventy, nine nine. Let me grab the bottle. Posso Dragon Cabernet Sauvignon twenty. Team. And the. Dragon. Is Let me take a look at this. Late. Nakamura. Neto. Up in the hills. And it looks like more like a river than a lake to me but that's okay. And it's from. From a maverick, a splint dragging doesn't have anything to do with game of thrones. PASA Robles. Single Aba Cabernet Sauvignon. Seven ninety nine I think Cabernet Sauvignon might be the hardest red wine of For an inexpensive price because you get used to. Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot blends from. You get used to a Cabernet Sauvignon from. Napa from Sonoma's where they sleep, you know age these wines and oak barrels for quite some time year and a half two years. In the flavoring from the oak becomes harder what you expect expected. Young. And Oak, barrel to. Sulphur thousand dollars you don't have that much wine in a barrel. They call Porto Barrels Berry. and. There's smaller ones there's more contact with the wind. seventy-nine bottle of wine doesn't have a big budget for. Hope. Now Trader Joe's trader. Joe's lime. Could, they do they cut out the marketing advertising and they kind of cut the distribution costs bit too. Let adds some question but. This one this winds. He don't really complain about in your happy with the. National. Review complained about. This city was a little fizzy at times when I taste it now that I've been drinking in a while that kind of sensation has gone away. It's An eight dollar cabinet. Actually pretty good. Know Normally speaking I would go up a little higher. Just because. I want I want more. Solid California taste to it but for eight bucks comes fairly close to it's not bad at all. Drinks fairly well, it's got good flavor took not. Not to smooth. It's not complex. What's their as good? Kim. Pretty. Good. It's a Tuesday night. It's got a great label A. Looks like any any expensive? Interesting. Models have is a cabernet models got the punt that little hole in the bottom. It's it's a solid bottle of ways of tons. And it doesn't taste bad. It's not. that. My favorite Cabernet Sauvignon the world. Sipping time like it pretty much. Ninety Nine And it's a single ABA one. That's one of the great things about trader Joe's that turned to California on the label. You can't get your head around where it's coming from. You don't understand what also. Do I like Lodi cavern. Kevin Election Nova. Cabernet. Can't tell. Says on the label but when you get single Aba wine and you get really cheaply like this trader, Joe's known worthless. Seventy. Nine. That gives you a heads up to. Someone's gift that. Gives you a heads up into what winds all pastoral robles or wherever they're from. Trader. Joe's really good for them. Another thing is if it's from a smaller Aba, you're probably getting better selection of grapes. There's only so much to choose from sort of big ABA but. You're just using Tala California. You can go pretty wide. So there you go. It's a good one. Thousand Nine. Five rubbles I liked that There you go to the next give. Audience.
Cheapwinefinder Talks French Wine
"Day for much wind finder, dot. COM AND WE'RE GONNA. Talk about French wine. Not In the way you usually French wine, we're not gonNA. Talk about which winds subside. Main this and chateau that and you know this region. This village, whose everything in France is very locale, oriented this village, the side of a river that's river, and we're. GonNa! Talk about any of that. We're GONNA, talk boat wines that. Cheap wine finder. Price, range, going to be under twenty bucks. We're going to talk about how to find him. Because, it's not always easy. Gets complicated. Because it's. All the different regions and all the different rules and regulations and this is. This is a AFC this grand through on the villages wines, I G B. Table why August very confusing. And it doesn't really matter. The price category that we're talking Abou. Because a good. Do, sir. They lowered designated lines. In all likelihood is probably better than a SO-SO producer from a high end area. The producer that matter, so you find these wines and that's where we're GONNA talk about. So? That's the next part. France is a great place to look for value priced wine. Because Frances is somewhere where people do drink. A great deal of wine every day and therefore drinking value priced wines. That's just how it works you if. People can't spend a hundred dollars a day. Online in some towns most can't. A snug nothing about France is that all the groups that were used to coming out of California and Washington and foregone in Chile, new, Zealand and Australia are all France Cabernet Sauvignon low. Carbonate Franck Chardonnay new. saudi-owned Blunt Bubbly Sarah. All the same grapes that you're used California Are in France only. Two inch, not gonNA taste exactly the same. Not GonNa be made. It's kind of funny California. You're always finding wine producers talking about how the Arab gundy or Bordeaux Light Search Rhone Valley. You'd never ever hear a France producer. Send Their California likes doesn't work that way. You can find wines from grapes that you are very familiar. Are Different so if you're in a Rut. Chardonnay Rut new. I got out of this where you can actually have another shocking coming from France going to be different Cabernet Sauvignon France from low. Actually me the only place they make really good Merlot is. Going to Francis Chattels a good place to get the wines because. They're familiar. One comes to. Fresh people speak our language and. It's not the same thing, so you're getting. Your pallets reorganized a little bit when you're drinking French wine. So. Francis Great Nurses gazillions places to. Or areas and fast makes really good affordable why? It's because they drink a lot of one there. To make a lot of wine in there plus they're. The pretty good of this exporting lines that we likes to drink so case how? Do you. Go about finding them, and that's the next fire. has for finding French wine. As you are limited by the stores that are geared the wine shops near you, you can always buy wine wine. I live in Chicago with an APP hour ride like any direction. There's probably sporty few wine shops or any kind of shot that will look liquor stores. Grocery stores is so why. Doesn't crew to meet oak buying online. I guess depends on where you live, but for the most part we're limited by. What's available at a reasonable driving distance? And so. That's something about one there you're. You're pretty much going to have to buy it from the shops Syria. But there's one good thing about that 'cause. Import wines all in. And Freshmen in particular is better by the time it gets to your store shelves. To through. Several different sources first of all. Quarter goes to France and they find out about a wine producer. who was doing very well in? France and they go to the producer and they make a deal to make wine or. The same winds or Song France and shift into the United States so that imported. I can sell that to my distributors so. He goes to the distributors and from that estates. There's usually distributors in every market. Across the country. There's a bunch of different distributors and distributors states for wine and they don't. My one shops will like this wine and it gets to the wine shops shops. This wine list price ranges something. My customers are going to like. So that doesn't mean that everyone on the shelf is. going. But if you're into one, there's something there. So it is that. You can pretty much trust. The bottles are going to be pretty good quality. So you gotta hope the wine shop takes care of it. The shipping job all that sort of thing. But, most of the lines are getting. From the big name importers to the little importers. GOING TO BE Good Quality Warren. Somebody went out on a limb. Choose these winds in and then a pass through several other people who drank it and decided they could sell to. So, when it comes to you. You have selection. Now. You'd then have to figure out what you're. The lines in the selection of wines you like and that. Isn't all that hard. Because when you go to the wine shop. If you don't really know too much about French wine and you know. You read about it, but the ones you read about all way too expensive. They don't spend a lot of ink. Writing about the inexpensive. Wines. Go on a day when it's not super crowded and nowadays when everything just opening up again and you could probably get back into wine shops. Asks the clerk on what you want with. The price ranges what you're looking for, and they will try to find something you want. It's it's always a good idea. I know a bunch of different one shop clerks. They want to help you. They want you to give them as much information as I can, so they can dial in what you want. NOPE, it's the guy comes in and buys hundred dollar bottles wines. Come in once a month every three weeks, but since you're buying ten twelve dollars, one thing what you coming back so. They want to really find out. Why aren't you likes you? Keep coming back, so that's how they make their money. Asked it's not a fan I did ask. What winds are which why these ones are good deal? Tell them what you want when you come back the next day I. China good though hoping for this. Try this one. That's really the easiest way. Ask them they will. Be Pit shop does not help you then find a shop does. And there's and then if you actually start to learn a little bit, you need go in following the import. I hear people saying the good advice as you find the. French wine kind of import wise to get your. Phone out take a picture of the label and one that you like because you know, it's hard sometimes to remember everything so the most times of a foreign language you gotta remember. Names probably can't pronounce that well. That's fine, but I think better thing to do. To get your phone out and take a picture of the. Back. was that is worthy. Information is GONNA be the importer. Talk winds coming in from Europe and France particularly. WHO The importer is. Huge as huge impact on the wine. I know for myself I rec- Eric Salomon selections. Like it. A lot of the Weinstein come from him. And there's there's a hair donnas. Rock band! Skull look. Thank and Wilson's Daniels is a bunch of good ones out. There I'm not I'm not saying summer better others I think. The all have good things going for someone more high end some more. Value Oriented, they're all out there, but the all. There's also local people bringing lines at your local area. People are well known outside of their area, but they're doing a really good job. They're finding little issues that are being catered to their finding winds for you. So. You find an import one and you see. Oh, that's the doesn't matter what. I told you I look I. Look at the shelves. Really. Creative around? Label is I'll free. It is or whatever. I like this guy are front labels never? Important I'm GonNa, take a chance on. Immune that's where wine. Where you learn about. puertas bringing the bigger importer Brienne wine across the nation. You're GonNa have a good selection. Some of them are small a spark whereas you might have the only. Wine is in your market nowhere else. Learn your imports. If you have your pal match up to them. That makes everything much. And then certain Puerto have. Certain price range it kind of narrows things down because you know even though there's. Millions of bottles Lincoln Out of France. Selection in your hometown might. Well will be fire far smaller than that. And since you don't need to know Oh, this is from this village. Mrs From that Bill Urgent. This produces been around seventeen forty two. Asking the clerk? Looking for the producer or the importer? Goes a long way. Where you need to go to find great stretch wines. And that's kind of the key to it. I mean you can't don't have to know you. Can you can? Study, why did you study French wine ever? Going through all these different ones, but the fine wines were drinking in your price range. You just need to ask some questions and see WHO's. And Because the individual wineries might not be everywhere, but the importers could. So keep the Find a one text to ask questions. They will answer properly and find out. The importers are. You don't need. Intimate knowledge of French wine. Fine Really, good affordable French once. There's shortcuts. Talk to the wine shop. I not what they have available and what they suggest you should have. figure out that you like this producer producers this produce this wine producer for sparkling wine. Take chances on things. And bubbly. Champagne. Sucks up all the options France. Big Dogs when it comes to fumbles. There's tons of. Other sparkling wines from France different regions. That, they would love to charge you a lot of money for their lines, but they can't. Because everybody who gets French sparkling wine buys champagne. Take chances on winds you haven't heard of. There's all sorts of good, and there's the they make them in the traditional of champagne-style. Stuff. You know so that you get a lot of different lines affordable wines. You. Don't need no tongue. Good French wine and it's almost always worth it. Sometimes when I have been drinking a lot of California wine when I get a French wine, fresh cabernet up and Yang. It's your pal. More structure is GonNa have more, and they're gonNa not do it exactly the way they'll do in California Washington. State And at first I'm like. I don't know if I really liked the step much. You know there's. You know I wanna go home I, WANNA drink American ones, but by the end of the first half of the second last he starts to Gates. Start to get acclimated to which is a way to kind of. Reorganize how you think about wine. And why are you drinking wine and what to expect from wine? You do go back to your son. Are Your Pasa Robles or just? California wines. You gotta appreciate them for what they act as they're not bad, you know it's like not like French wines way better than visit American lines I don't think so I like them both. But once you learn a little bit about the French wine. It's kind of. Opens up your perspective American wines. So you don't need to be you know a genius you don't need to study. The shortcuts and they're they're. Are vetted taking a chance, not a bad thing because it's gone through four five different people all stay student and all same. They can sell it. So there you go. Give it a shot and if you want something under. Ten. Bucks you WANNA six dollar French wine then trader, Joe's and all these and all those things great place for that. If you just want to give it A. Try them out before you go to the shop and try something different, so that's tries French wine, not that difficult of us. The shortcuts you. WanNa learn more by all. Means learn more. But you can start drinking great wine. Just five out a few, the shortcuts and Drink up. Keep a cheap heavy great time. Be Safe out there and audio spot.
Poppy Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
"Dave from cheap wind biter dot com and got another want again today. I like we do what we do. You know on the cheap wine fighter dot com website. We have a written review in the Donald Long-form for what I'm going to do today Most of the talking is kind of like in addition to so if you're actually interested in the wine Check out the. WWW dot cheap wine finder. Doug Dot Com. And you can read it that and a gazillion other ones there. And so we're GONNA get into this wine of today. It's the Poppy Paso Robles. Cabernet Sauvignon twenty seventeen and poppy. He is the state flower of California. The silver family Started this brand in two thousand three scots mystery. And they've been in the industry for forty five years or more and Paso Robles Central Coast is a kind of a really great place to find Cabinets Hill. I mean you can go high end. Cabernet Sauvignon then and you can also find really good more value price. Ask Winds there too. So if you're into cabinet young and you don't really want to spend forty five fifty dollars for Napa or high end sonoma's Maybe maybe even Walla Walla which gets up in Columbia which gets expensive Paso. Robles is a great place that along. I'm you know. I'm kind of Fond of Columbia Valley and in Lodi for my cabinet. Someone Young. 'cause you can get a drink at now winds winds. I don't need to be aged to be drinkable The body and flavor and that La value. So let me take a SIP Arcus if they got about a little bit of a cold coming on and whine cures what ails you so passengers are really really great place to find cabinet seventy on plus some other winds to but there's another reason I was reading up on this wine. And it has a few techniques that are interesting eighteen in the first one is something that I had never read before. And it's thermo vinification and they also do maceration and the other thing about this. Is I love Web. A wineries have websites. Actually tell you a little bit about how they made the wine now. I don't really need to know all that the winemaking techniques because I'm not making the one I'm just drinking it but if you know about the most important ones are the different ones why this is different from that one you can make better judgment on what wind the by. And that's you know that's one thing I've learned about you know in as long as I've been into wine the one I think I figured Out and I don't know everything about everything but I do know what I like and I do know how to find what I like this website. We don't use a lot of samples we basically Basically go out and buy a wine that we wanNA talk about so you know. It's you know almost always it's like a good positive review. Because I you know I payout ones I like you know why would I wanNA write about bad wines. Are They not bad wines. I don't like never say why neo like is a bad one or somebody else who loves it. So this is is Fairly new process the thermo benefit. is they take the grapes when they first crush them. And they're still the grapes in there air and there's stems and seeds in with the juice and there's bits of grapes and everything and they heated up or they cool it because I'm reading they can go either way. They almost go to boiling away. Can really cool it down. Depending on what process. They're trying to use in what that does visited either extend accentuates or lessons whatever. You're trying to get out of the grapes. Do you want to get more out. You do this. I WanNa make that less. Do that so you can kind of pinpoint what you're going for with the grapes. You have and make the most of it and they do part of this Part of the grapes did Thermo vindication the other didn't as maceration maceration just a slower process. They use as you know some temperatures with that too but it just sits there for a while. The thermal vinification happens quicker. And it's a new process and I have. I have never read about it. And it's in this. Poppy Bass aerobics cabernet twenty seventeen. And you know I remember when I first got into wine micro Oxygenation was a big deal. Robert Parker who was leading wine critic way back when he's he's now kinda retired had a Michelle Roulin who've move out of Bordeaux who was going around to all these wineries and they. Hey you WANNA be famous durbar technique and it was up in arms. Nowadays micro explanation is not a big deal anymore and this is kind of the same thing this thermal vilification which is the.

Rudy Kurniawan Pt. 1: Wine Connoisseur to Counterfeiter
"Around the year two, thousand twenty something Rudy Canal and took a seat at the table fisherman's wharf.

He didn't know he was supposed to swell and sniff. The wine to appreciate is full flavor instead Rudy lifted the Gloucester, his lips and slow down the one hundred and twenty five cabinet blend as if it were a splash of two buck chuck the flavors caught him off guard. He noted the taste of black raspberries and fresh cut flowers as well as the faint smell of tobacco and chocolate. When he shed these observations, he realized his father hadn't been able to detect the intricacies. Rudy realized in that moment that he had a sensitive palate. He had unwittingly unearth his neck for wine tasting one he quickly turned into a bona fide purpose in the years to come rudy used his keen sense of taste to rise up the ranks of wine courses around the world. But Rudy would take skill much further than most and begin counterfeiting wine. Welcome to con artists.

Your claimed wine dealer, we'll take a look at how rudy used his remarkable Palette to create counterfeit blends that could trick even the most experienced tasters. Next week, we'll examine rudy's downward spiral fooling from connoisseur to criminal status as his fraudulent vintages met the wrath of the auction houses and bias who were con- out of millions. We have old that's more coming up stay with us. Rudy Canadian was a wine counterfeiter who sold millions of dollars, worth of fake vintages to individuals and auction houses beginning in the early two thousands rudy had officially entered the world of fine wine by two thousand and two when he was just twenty five years old, he initially had an earnest enthusiasm that made him seem like a rookie, but it quickly became clear that when it came to wine, Rudy was a force to be reckoned with his sensitive pilot exceptional memory and affable demeanor helped Rudy charm his way into several exclusive. Tasting groups in a matter of months there he further built his reputation by supplying unbelievably ravages from his private collection. Eventually, Rudy stopped gifting bottles and started selling them partnering up with a high end wine shop in Manhattan in two thousand six to sell his fraudulent bottles by the case load that year he made millions but his tricarico up to him in two thousand seven when several collectors noticed that bosses from Moody's collection with forgeries shortly thereafter, the wine community officially turned against the scam at to and so began his demise. Rudy Canadian was born in the tropical city of Jakarta Indonesia on. October. Tenth Nineteen Seventy six to Chinese parents. His birth name was Wong Hong. At the time relations between Indonesia's minority Chinese population and majority Muslim, population were quite strained because of this rudy's father is said to have insisted that all of his sons go by Indonesia names and so then Wan Kwong became rudy. Canadian. A name his parents stole from a famous Indonesian badminton player though little else is known about Rudy's Mum and dad it's revealing that they chose to give their son someone else's Monica for his own good and while the jump from faking an Indonesian identity to counterfeiting winds is significant. This early experience with deceit may have influenced Rudy's willingness to lie to get ahead. In his childhood, some reports indicate that money was never a problem for Rudy or his family. They enjoyed all the luxuries that came with their lavish life. In fact, the family of seven reportedly lived on a sprawling private compounds that kept their. Christian. Chinese family separate from the Muslim population of Jakarta. But story suggests that Rudy didn't spend much time on that property as he may have been away at boarding school in Singapore. Though the way his parents are quiet, their alleged wealth remains a mystery. Two of his uncles were fairly infamous during the early to mid ninety s for financial scandals in Nineteen ninety-four. Rudy's uncle. Eddie, Tansel was involved in the biggest banking scandal in Indonesian history embezzling roughly four hundred and thirty million dollars in fake loans from bank pum Bagman Indonesia Tansel was sentenced to twenty years in prison but escaped in May of Nineteen ninety-six with the help of some corrupt prison officials then in nineteen ninety-seven, another one of Rudy's on. Cole's Hendra Religio fled Indonesia after he got bank harpen. Sentosa. Shut down by the government. The institution has misused over three hundred and nine hundred million dollars in emergency loans much of which had gone straight into Raja's pocket prosecutors asserted that both brothers used illegally earned funds to pay for land homes and businesses for their family. Unfortunately, most of that stolen money has never been recovered and while there is no evidence to link Rudy with his uncles crimes, it's possible that Eddie and Hendra inspired their nephews later turned toward delinquency. Numerous studies have been conducted about the transmission of criminal behavior within families proving that it's often passed down through generations one such study conducted by psychologists. David Farrington and others, and published in the Journal of Adolescence in October two thousand, one salt to investigate the relationships between three generations of relatives within offending families. This study entitled the concentration of offenders in families and family criminality in the prediction of boys. Delinquency is one of the few to examine how criminal members in a child's extended family affect them. David concluded the arrests of mothers fathers, siblings, uncles aunts grandfathers, and grandmothers are all predictors of a boys delinquency. While fathers were the largest predictor of future criminal behavior uncles were also important in terms of independently predicting a child's delinquency. Out of the one, thousand, three, hundred, ninety, five, boys studied thirty three percent had fathers that had been arrested twelve point eight percent of the boys had uncles who had also been arrested. There's no way to know for sure what kind of personal influence Eddie and Hendra had on the nephew but statistics clearly demonstrate that criminal behavior may have predicted Rudy's. At some point in the ninety s, while Rudy's uncles were finding various ways to escape prison. Rudy made his way to Pasadena California where he moved into an apartment with one of his older brothers some reports say that Rudy came to the United States in nineteen ninety-three while some say he arrived in nineteen ninety-five others suggests that Rudy didn't show up in the US until nineteen ninety eight when he was accepted to California State University northridge regardless of when Rudy got to. California he reportedly received his student visa in Nineteen Ninety eight which made him temporary but legal residents of the United. States he majored in accounting and was overall a great student though of its shy with his classmates interestingly in what may have been misguided attempt to gain popularity rudy lied to his fellow undergraduates telling them that he got into school on a golf scholarship when contacted later interviews about Rudy, the longtime Gulf coach for cal state. Northridge said he'd never heard of him. Nevertheless Rudy kept on with this lie but in or around two thousand one rudy's time at university had come to a close and his student visa is said to have expired. Desperately, low. The idea of pretending to Indonesia as discrimination against the Chinese population hadn't improved since he'd left mass unemployment food shortages and economic recession had caused violent unrest with an Indonesian cities and the government was quick to use Chinese Indonesians as a scapegoat for their problems. As a result of this turmoil. Ruby's mother applied for asylum with the US government and was approved. She encouraged her son to apply for refuge as well in his application. Rudy expressed fifth his life should he be forced to return home? He said I am vulnerable and only death awaits me in Indonesia. On, that same impassioned application Rudy inexplicably listed a fake address as his residence entering the information for Small Jakarta hardware store. Instead of his family's actual abode, this may have been because he knew he'd get more sympathy from the feds if they thought rudy came from a poor family however, Rudy wasn't as lucky as his mother. At around twenty five years old, he was denied political asylum. It was also around this time that he traveled up to San. Francisco to have a special birthday dinner with his father on fisherman's warf. The two men enjoyed the ocean breeze, a delicious meal and best of all, a bottle of nineteen ninety-six opus one and right there overlooking the San Francisco Bay Rudy discovered he had a gift for tasting the specific flavors in wine by the time he finished the bottle he decided to capitalize on his newfound talent when he returns Pasadena Rudy began attending tastings at red carpet wine and spirits respected wine shop in the nearby suburb of Glendale. His mission to learn everything there was to know about the inebriated and he did rudy quickly learned the different grapes influence the varietal wine while the year determined vintage of it helped by his naturally sensitive palate and exceptional memory rudy cultivated a mental tastes library. Soon, he was able to identify the presence of asserts in grape by a winds fragrance alone he could even identify which specific wine he was drinking based only upon look and SIP with no bottle sight by early two, thousand and two, twenty, five year old Rudy. Finally felt ready to play with the pros in the world of fine wine. This meant attending auctions in order to create a collection that could lead to be shed sold, or at the very least bragged about. So Rudy Hawkeness car and drove a few hours north to Pasa Robles. A Central Californian city known for its wineries and vineyards as rudy go close to town the smell of fresh red wine wafted through his open windows. He smiled and turned the wheel to head up the drive to one of his early charity auction events using the money. He allegedly received from his family in the form of a generous monthly allowance Rudy plan to bid on a case of red. Wine. coming up rudy builds out a personal collections.

After studying accounting California State University Northridge Rudy decided that he loved wine more than balancing books. So in early two, thousand, two, twenty, six, year, old Rudy Kane'ohe an attended a charity auction PASA Robles California to start building a top notch collection that would impress season connoisseurs though the young Asian man stuck out like a sore thumb amongst the crowd of elderly white bidders he didn't. Appear nervous or uncomfortable in the slightest rudy introduced himself to the other wine lovers charming them with a self deprecating sense of humor and full acknowledgement of his newcomer status. When the auction started rudy took a seats in the back and watched as the men around him casually bid thousands of dollars on case after case of rare wine eventually the auction it excitedly announced the next. Wine available forbidding a barrel of two thousand, one Sarah produced by California. Winery Sing Qua non synchro non has a fanatical following in the wine world and Sarah is a particular cult favorite. One barrel of wine can amount to roughly twenty five cases all over two hundred fossils. Rudy Canadian was determined to establish a reputation as a high roller by walking out of that's auction with. More than two hundred bottles of that famed Sarah, he held up his paddle as soon as the bidding started and never once puts it down. Rudy watched calmly as the price grew Haya and the pedals around him lowered into course every paddle. But Rudy's was placed back in a lap and rudy was deemed the winner of the lot purchasing the barrel for twenty five thousand dollars. After the events in Pasa Robles Rudy felt confident enough to start attending bigger auctions across the country. He drove north to take part in auctions in Napa Valley and Cinema County he flew east to bid on winds in New York City as his perimeter expanded. So did his collection rudy has started by purchasing California wines but he quickly graduated to bore does and Burgundy's his disarming nature and impeccable pilot. Got Him invited to some of the country's most exclusive. Tasting groups and his willingness to open his Wallet Open Doors to a myriad of private auction rooms by the end of two thousand and two rudy was famous for spending roughly one million dollars a month on wine singlehandedly driving up the market price for several vintages. Rudy's new friends were mesmerized by the companion despite knowing very little about him. He had money that much was clear but the source of his funds remained a mystery to everyone some people believed his. Family owned a beer distributorship back in Indonesia one friend recalled it was Heineken another insisted it was guinness but like much of Rudy's past no one in his circle ever truly nail down the specifics rudy claim to get a monthly allowance from his rich family. But the exact amount he said he received always seem to vary sometimes it was one million dollars per month other times. It was two million dollars. In either case, Rudy's friends had good reason to write. Off His extravagant lifestyle as a result of his parents generosity. So they didn't question it when he never invited them back to his home after various tastings and social engagements, his friends simply figured he was an introverted guy who didn't want to flaunt his opulent home wherever it was besides it didn't matter to them. If they got invited back to Rudy's abode when Rudy Cain to there's he was always exceptionally generous and apparently he had a sentimental side as well. Whenever he went out for drinks with friends rudy made sure to ask the restaurant to save their empty wine bottles for him. He told people that he kept the bottles in order to preserve the memory of when he drank from them. Rudy would smile and point to the people around the. Promising that he would write their names on the bottom of the bottle including the name of the restaurant. They'd be net and the date they'd all drank together. But when the night was over, Rudy would head home with a different plan in mind. After leaving expensive beach restaurants in Santa Monica or rolling mansions in Beverly Hills Rudy would drive thirty miles east to Arcadia a suburb in the San Gabriel Valley with a heavy Chinese population. He would park on the streets outside the white stucco home he shared with his mother and bring his wine bottles inside, and then rudy would apparently set those bottles into a bath of soapy water in his kitchen sink letting them float until their labels soaked off. Rudy's plan was to reproduce those expensive wines using a combination of cheaper vintages. He would often poor the counterfeit wine into genuine bottles and sell his product as if it were fenwick. Rudy's production of fake wine was actually his second foray into the world of fraud. The first time he illegally falsified his address on his visa application, which is a crime against the US. Government criminologists and sociologists Donald Cressey spent much of his career researching why people commit fraud and in nineteen fifty one he came up with a theory the fraud triangle as it was aptly named asserts that in order for an individual to be motivated to commit fraud three elements must be present fresher opportunity and an attitude of rationalization the first elements. Pressure can be defined as a non charitable problem or a problem that must be solved secretly. Usually this problem is financial wants the individual feels the pressure of a problem they will look for any opportunity to solve it. This is element number two, because the problem must be solved secretly the opportunities for an honest solution often limited if not nonexistent. So the individual will activate element number three, an attitude of rationalization. They will construct a mindset that defines that behavior as appropriate for the situation even though the actions typically hurt other people. Don't Cressey maintained that the fraud triangle was applicable to every individual. He'd interviewed who perpetrated embezzlement however, applying it to rudy is complicated as so much of his financial situation and past was shrouded in secrecy. The first time he committed fraud rudy evidently face the problem of returning to Indonesia and found an opportunity to solve it by feigning a pool life overseas. But the specific precious that drove him to counterfeit wines a still a mystery. It's possible. Rudy misspent all of the money he received from his rich relatives. It's also possible that his family stopped sending him money entirely ultimately it's unclear what drove rudy to seek count wealth and exploitative ways, but he suddenly found his secret opportunity for fraud in the world of wine. Rudy. Relied on his unparalleled ability to detect aromas distinguish after tastes and remember mouth feels to make his deceptions convincing. To the best of his ability, he combined cheap vintages to replicate some of the rarest wines in the world he scribbled formulas on random bottles and in his own shorthand, he indicates it how much of each wine he needed to fold in to create the perfect blend but taste was only one component of the counterfeit process. Some of these collectors would never even open their bottles preferring to keep. Their sellers stocked with vintages to show off not drink because of this rudy was also diligent in replicating labels. If he was lucky enough to snag an empty bottle with the pristine label, he would carefully clean and preserve it to refill later. But most of the time the bustles he received from restaurants featured labels that had been damaged by the evening in some way a stain hey or ted. After, cleaning and filling those bottles, rudy would obstensibly look through stacks of copied labels in order to find the appropriate one then glue it onto the bottle. No one knows where Rudy gotTa love his labels printed. But whoever helped him out certainly made a significant contribution to his counterfeit operation as Rudy's labels were usually immaculate. kooks were harder to replicate labels, but a perfect cork was not necessary to reproduce in order to avoid fraud detection. The recording of wine is a common process as Cork's tend to dry out after a couple of decades. This compromises the airtight seal and causes the wine to spoil as long as the label. Boto looked authentic and the wine tasted rights collector could easily ignore the presence of a new cork by September two, thousand three Rudy may have finally felt ready to try out his counterfeit wine on a group of. He planned a coming out party for himself at a Swanky Santa Monica restaurant where officially presented himself as a vendor to the wine world. When he arrived at the party rudy carried case after case of rare wine from his car into the restaurant, he inspected his collection nervously glancing at the likely fake bottles that had been carefully placed among the group of genuine vintages moments. Later, guests flooded through the front doors ready to see what Rudy's wine had to offer. There was no turning back now. Coming up. Rudy's counterfeit wine is finally put to the test.

Now back to the story. In September of two thousand, three off to spending over a year perfecting his process of Counterfeiting Rev into wines twenty six year old Rudy. Canadian was ready to see how they fed in the tasting world. Before he headed to his debut party at Melissa and Santa Monica he very likely packed some counterfeit bottles discreetly among those in his genuine collection by placing an occasional fake in a cluster of real wines rudy may have believed the forgeries would be more convincing, but he was still nervous for the big night. Guests had paid forty eight hundred dollars per ticket for the opportunity to taste the rare winds in Rudy's exquisite collection. And he wants it then to leave feeling, they'd made it good investment one Attendee Coal Wasserman the son of well-known Burgundy importer becky. Wasserman, particularly excited to taste some chateau petrus from thousand, nine, hundred, forty, seven until then the oldest patrice had tried was from nineteen, seventy five. But when Paul tried the forty seven, he couldn't help shake his head and confusion something about it just didn't taste right to him. It didn't have the same smoothness of the other bore does he had tried before from that same vintage in his private notes that night pool jotted down his serious doubts about the bottles autheniticity but he did not confront rudy. After all, he couldn't be sure that the boss was fake and even if it was pulled in, think that rudy was to blame for the counterfeit wine collectors and sellers got dukes sometimes pull my deshun. That's what happened to rudy pointing it out only would have embarrassed his host not to mention who would have risked being uninvited to all of Rudy's future tastings. So he said nothing. Wine tasters often keep suspicions quiet when they suspect something may be wrong about winds legitimacy because the business of wine tasting can be quite subjective. Even the most skilled enough will doubt that own palace before they doubt the authenticity of respected sellers collection, Rudy, new this and capitalized on it. He wandered around Molise and observed his guests as they sipped his sham wine pleased to find that he had fooled. So many of his friends. Unfortunately the excitement rudy felt after pulling off a successful scheme was short lived around the time of his party in September of two thousand and three, twenty, six year old Rudy received word from the US government that duty his application being denied in two thousand one he must return to. Indonesia, immediately. Rudy ignored it. He wasn't just a fraudster anymore. He was also a fugitive and he wasn't ready to let his newfound success slip through his fingers. Rudy may not have been able to fly out of the country duty his rejected visa status, but he could still travel within the US. If he was careful by two thousand and four rudy had become acquainted with a man named. John. Capping after meeting him at a wine focused dinner in Los Angeles a couple of years earlier both being ambitious in their goals within the industry they hit it off right away and later in two thousand and four Rudy flew to Manhattan to meet up with John Rudy had hopes of forming a business partnership with his new friend. So when He arrived in the Big Apple he felt iga the bright future that awaited him John Explain to rudy that he was trying to convert his family's upper west side small wine shop ACA Maryland conduit into a key player at big wine auctions when Rudy heard this, he came up with a plan that would benefit both of them rudy proposed that johnstown selling vintages from Rudy's own personal collection since rudy purported to own some of the rarest most expensive wines in the world John You the bottles from his collection would be a huge draw pleased that the prospective venture John Agreed He. Had, also invited his new business partner into the twelve angry men a new york-based group of wine collectors with wealthy successful backgrounds across the board. The twelve angry men relished in their wine meet UPS several times a year they gathered to dine together at each meeting. One of the men would serve wine from his personal seller according to one of the members film director Jeffrey Levy the group chose the name because they hated going to typical Philistine dinner parties where they would bring nice bottle of wine and then be forced to drink the swill. The other guests had provided it made. The men angry. So they decided to have their own dinner parties where they could rest assured. They would have wine that was up to their standards meeting that criterion would have been hard for the average dinner guest because the twelve angry men often broke out two hundred, thousand dollars worth of wine in a single night even though rudy's friendly demeanor made it seem like he'd never been angry in his life he fit right in with the group, his generous spirit and extensive collection of rare wines made him a favourite host amongst the men they called him the Rockstar of wine tasting. Rudy's Reverend Mission to the Exclusive Club of twelve angry men around two thousand four officially solidified his position amongst the country's most elite wine tasters and by January two, thousand six, he'd accrued a large enough amount of rare vintages both genuine and counterfeit that he sets out to sell his wines. By the case load. This mission was made easier by the fact that Rudy's business partner John Kaplan was also interested in selling full cases since collectors and vineyards didn't want. To risk their bustles not selling, they only send John a couple rare bottles at a time, but to be considered a top tier auction house John Needed to be selling full cases. So Rudy capitalized on that need knowing he too could further his reputation in the wine world as a seller. So together, Rudy and John Plan an affluent affair to kick off the year it would be an auction of wines from what Joan claimed was the greatest seller in America. That seller of course belonged to Rudy. Canadian. The event took place at Crewe restaurant a wine lovers paradise located in. Manhattan's Greenwich Village crews. Interior was high end but simple featuring minimal decor on first glance the event appear deceptively low key because of this the attendees from the upper echelon of New York's wind community felt unsure about what to expect. But when Rudy's bottles began to hit the auction podium, the guests understood that they were in for a very impressive night Rudy's debut auction of his collection was a slam dunk by the end of the two day. Event John had sold one thousand, seven hundred and forty two lots of Rudy's wine and they made ten point, six, million dollars. The duo became instant celebrities and collectors all over the world were desperate to own a bottle from Rudy's personal selah everyone who hadn't been at the event demanded a second one. So Rudy and John planned another auction for October of two thousand six with his comment from the first auction and in advance from the second rudy was suddenly swimming in cash. So he went on a spending spree. He started by upping his attendance at wine auctions reportedly spending at least a million dollars a month in order to restock his seller in preparation for the October event. With this major windfall gain it seems rudy was given the chance to take the high road investing only in real winds and becoming an honest man in other words, his needs to counterfeit was no longer substantiated by his lack of financial resources but it appears that rudy was driven by greed and he couldn't help himself from splurging on life's finest offerings. He bought millions of dollars worth of contemporary art and several expensive cars including a Bentley and the Ferrari. He also began gut level renovations on an eight million dollar house in Ambala. Rudy's compulsion to spend may be psychologically linked to his inclination to commit fraud in their book a General Theory of Crime Criminologists Dr Michael, Godfredson Conduct Travis Hershey discussed the relationship between crime and self control Michael and Travis developed what they called the general theory of. Crime which asserts that a lack of individual self control is often a primary factor behind criminal behavior felons tend to live with a here and now mentality only responding to stimuli available in their immediate environment people with high self control on the other hand a more likely to assess the long-term consequences of their behavior. Because of this, they rarely make the short-sighted opportunistic choice to commit a crime rudy in general was infamous for his inability to plan ahead. He was often late two events showing up over an hour after they were scheduled to start. He rarely paid his bills on time he slept to well into the afternoon on most weekdays but people overlooked rudy's impulsive nature and lack of organization where others would be deemed irritating and disrespectful for such regular transgressions. Rudy was simply seen as eccentric for them. He had become such an important figure in the wine world that anyone who dared to criticize him risk being ostracized from the community altogether. Because of Rudy's growing popularity, his second auction with John was estimated to outperform his first. But no one predicted just how much more successful it would be. At the time. The record for the highest grossing wine option was held by Sotheby's when they grossed fourteen point four, million dollars from event in one, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety, nine. John and Rudy's October two, thousand, six auction smash this record two pieces. John stood at the front of the room, a gavel in one hand and the glass of wine and the other and sold two, thousand, three, hundred, ten lots of Rudy's wine. Some of it was genuine some of it was counterfeit and all of it was extremely pricey. At the end of the auction Jon and Rudy totaled up as sales they had made twenty four point seven, million dollars Rudy was on top of the world. After spending the summer, designing a mansion and cruising in sports cars rudy spent the winter purchasing a wine shop in Beverly Grove. And getting profiled by the L. A. Times, Rudy's feature in the Times described him as a huge force in the wine markets dramatically driving up the price for various vintages across the world. But the newspaper also decided to include a quote from wine consultant Brian or cut who felt astonished by Rudy Speedy Success as the obstacle explained Brian worried that it was going to be difficult for routes continue at the pace keeping going. If Rudy didn't slow down soon, people might start questioning how he was able to amass. So many references so quickly. But as usual, Rudy had no concern for the future he lived in the present and as far as rudy was concerned, nothing could bring him down rudy forged on with the reconstruction of his Bella House but it proved to be a bigger job than any of the contractors had anticipated. Meanwhile, he spent tens of thousands of dollars per night at some of Los Angeles's swankiest restaurants sipping wine with his friends as his new Chihuahua chloe slept in his jacket pocket. As. Rudy's banked balanced dwindled. So did his reputation Collectors privately exchanged notes about how it was seemingly impossible for one man to obtain the shift volume of revenue, which is that Rudy had. While Rudy frolicked around La burning up his CENTURION AMEX card with every purchase he made wine collectors across America whispered about the amounts of fake bottles that had come from the man's seller. To these collectors were Doug Bosley and dawn cornwell both lawyers and avid experts from Burgundy wines. The two were distressed to discover that Rudy had offered bottles of Nineteen twenty-three roomy a boma at his auctions. This didn't seem possible because the domain hadn't even been founded until nineteen twenty. Four. Meanwhile in Palm Beach Florida Bill, coke brother of Charles, and David. Koch thoroughly inspected his own wine cellar and he did. So with the mindfulness of the way he'd been scorned in the past. Once upon a time, he had purchased full bottles of wine from what he had been told was President Thomas Jefferson's personal collection. In, two thousand, five bill and the other bias of the so-called Jefferson wines learned they had been duped. Bill sued the collector who had sold him the wines, but it wasn't enough for bill. The fraud made him skeptical of all the other vintages he owned. Now, he'd finally gotten around to investigating them and he hired a team to help. The examination was meticulous and time consuming and it would take years for bill and his investigators to work their way through his forty-three thousand bottles seller. But somewhere in the back several bottles of Rudy Kane'ohe and wine sat on their shelves patiently waiting to be exposed for the fakes they were across the country rudy himself continued on with his counterfeit operation very likely unaware that his sure demise lay just beyond the horizon. Thanks for listening to Catis. We'll be back next week with part two of Rudy Canadian story where we'll detail rudy's dissent from counterfeit king to convicted criminal for more information on Rudy. Canadian amongst the many sources we used, we found Chateau sucker by Benjamin Wallace of Ny magazine extremely helpful to our research.

Peachy Canyon Lodi Zinfandel 2017
"From cheap wine dot com again. We've got another inexpensive one hundred ten dollars from trader joe's but it's not a trader joe's wine. It's regular brand. That just happens to be there for some reason. Which i'm not entirely sure. Let me grab the bottle. So i can read it up south that hard to remember but way can't blessed up it's peachy canyon load is up until twenty seven thousand nine at trader joe's or a zinfandel from a family owned and operated winery. Not not at brand. That's a little bit weird that i go on to teach kenyans website. Not there and What happened is Canyon is like one of the robles. That's where they're out of their one of those handful of weiner's pasta robles in the nineties. They started eighty-eight family on the beckett family and the family owned they still are the sunstroke off the younger sons while the father continue to run. Pg canyon and they started. The winery called product. Sellers might have seen their red wine. The a lot of skeletons hotel. I know you wireless but costs sofa. King ueno say that fast. Get the job. And that was their one had otherwise they sold it off to burn tidy sum to a wine company and they worked with that part of the deal. They worked with them for a while thick than last year. They came back to run. The family business took a back seat so sometimes often actually when he changed winemakers and you make changes in the operations certain wines. Don't make it to the other side and i. I'm speculating here. They are a tasha robles. I mean this is load line. And they do a lot of single greener winds. They have their own vineyards. They really catch tuna pasa robles. So this didn't really fit. And i looked at the web and in it's this is selling for practice. Found two hundred one was selling differ. Twenty dollars thirty dollars and again. It's seven thousand nine hundred trader. Joe's i don't know if they're selling off a wine that's not going to be part of their State staple wines anymore rather have it compete with their other lines as trader joe's rather than another wine shop where you're competing against yourself when you sell it off. I'm not sure why it. Selling for southern ninety nine is so peachy. Netflix mix exelon wind. Winery family owned wide. They're not brand at the brand's don't make good wind but there's something about Winery with people make themselves to something about fat. You gotta respect and you gotta support so here getting expensive wine that proudly was selling for more than what it is. I'm not sure how much more i think the twenty and thirty our price crazy out for that. I want to take one thing. I like about the load zinfandel favorite. There's more expensive areas but a lot of their wines to have this canada little classes window and rustic spicy gypsies at the dome mechanic meet in the middle. It's kind of a style. You find their lot and this feature canyon load is up two thousand seventeen kinda has that. Even though that's not really. Necessarily what faster. Robles stylus here. So maybe the grapes have something to do with. It will always obviously the do it. Even though these are robles winemakers making this time. It has that labor of lodi which i am a fan of you know. That's my favorite. There's all sorts of really famous up the dole. Wineries out there that they wanted to cost twice as much as a typical lodi wine. And i'm not all that interested. Because i like the expensive ones and this gives me that really well made and never take another step. Because it's really well a med. So there you go feature canaan wine Load is impotent 2017 trader. joe's seven ninety nine. I don't know why it's there but it is there. And if you're looking for a bargain for well-made line because a lot of trader joe's winds you don't know what we're and winning here you know who wear where who what where and when and that's it for the next one cheap audio stay warm. They save. I'll be talking to you adopt.
Fetzer Sundial Chardonnay 2018
"It's taboo. This is David Wind by the DOT com. And I ant date We have another companion podcasts. Like we do most the time for a why we just put on the cheap wine finder dot com website site It's is a wine lately. We've been doing a lot of Trader Joe'S COSCO ALL D- STOREBRAND's contract brands. Those winds have a a a price advantage. Just because of the you know just because the circumstances the they have they can come in several dollars cheaper than retail wines and today we have a retail wine that is actually in the exact same price range in it. Is the FETZER Fetzer Sundial Chardonnay. Twenty eight teen. I found her six ninety nine. It was on sale. It might be a buck or two more not on sale but but it's in the same price range as the value price was and the one of the reasons I picked this one because I noticed it got an eighty eight eight points from Wine Spectator magazine. Wine spectator doesn't usually give out points easily until it's a magazine aimed at restaurants collectors at At allocated wines it they are pretty tough on points in most most of these top end. Ones don't really pay that much attention to the very lower end into get eighty eight points which is a b plus. That's a solid grade for for a wine. That is seven dollars. That's gotta saying something. I was kind of Intrigued by that. So I picked it up and then I started reading about Fetzer FETZER is a been around six sixty eight. I think they're still family. Owned they recently recently got a certified Seek Corp Designation which is how you get that for being gene sustainably managed in ethically managed and the companies in that also have the certified C. Corp designation is is Ben and Jerry's and Patagonia. I didn't expect to see value priced wine company in there and so that kind of says something for the company any and I look at these Sundial Fetzer. Oh Chardonnay and it's been getting very good points for a number of years now. No some smaller Smaller publications have given the nineties but it's getting ADA getting B. Pluses. It's getting a minuses and it's an inexpensive wine so a look into it and it's kind of interesting line Often inexpensive under ten dollar white wines are you're very Very simply produced. And that's not a bad thing you know crush the grapes For Menem give it a little bit of aging off they go oh they're bright. They're either either fruity or citrusy. And they've got good acidity and they're funded drink. They got great nose they smell good. It tastes good. That is a very simple way to do. The wives a good way. That's why not especially white wines are expensive are often really good now. This one businesses so simply produced they said it was fermented in stainless steel tanks but the also mentioned of the French oak an American. They didn't mention barrels or staves or chips or anything. It was kind of confusing. I don't care how the flavor if they get the flavors. There's right especially in the inexpensive wines because barrels can cost a lot of money if what they were looking for they got and the price is right fine. You know it's it's it's a long as it tastes good. I don't care how they get flavors in there for the for the most part so so so it's got French and American oak and it talks about varying levels of toast now when a barrel oak barrels for wine is produced. They put flame in the inside and they toasty inside of it. And it's called the The flame tolsey inside there's various levels in different flavors come at different levels in the winemakers usually decide. We want this awesome because they want vanilla they want this. They want this flavor. They want that flavor so they used French American and various different types of toasts to get the flavors. That's a lot of effort to get exactly what they're looking for. And this is a seven dollar wine. That was kind of a good sign that someone went through a lot the trouble to get what they're looking for and also the the portion part of the wind was just on Ocht and stainless steel and the other uh-huh and they didn't say didn't give percentages. The other part was some sort of oak aging. They didn't specify And kind of complicated Oak Regiment Eh. And the part where the Oak Mala Lactic fermentation and Mala Lactic. Fermentation happens in red wine. All the time and it happens in chardonnays only a few white ones it occurs and and what it is that the naturally occurring mallow ACID gets changed into lactic acid lactic. lactose it's milky. It gives it a rounded flavor and it goes well with the oak flavorings so this is kind of vague little bit of a complicated inexpensive Chardonnay. It's kind of on the light set of medium gonNA take a taste. The Ami it's really well balanced city is right words rightness. Right in the sweet spot yeah. It's not too much not too little flavors. Donald fold has got a Mellon. It's got apples got lemon peach pear A little bit of pineapple not repeatable almost like dried pineapple A little tropical. It's kind of Nice nothing. Nothing stands ends out all kinds of smooth and integrated which is a sign of a good wine in young. I'm saying some things about a wine that normally say but why is it costs more than what this cost which is probably why eighty eight points? It's a really good effort for a wine. It tastes good Medium bodied did kind of flows mandates. You know I always kind of like winds at have lip smacking acidity. That kind of is almost a little bit too much. It's it's like it's not actually too much. But it's on the it's on the plus side of acidity and I kind of liked it in a wine certain ones but this one doesn't need. I don't need any additional prodding to get me to grab another glass another sip from the glass. So that's good What else about this wine? Oh Yeah when you see California. I'm the label Fencers from Mendocino the labels California for the grapes. There are three main areas. That grow grapes. And it's the central coast and inside the central coast of Santa Barbara and Paso Robles and Monterey and a whole bunch of other smaller. Aba's and then the north coast. It is Napa Sonoma Mendocino County. And I throw something else or by missing something. And then there is the central valley and that's mostly Clarksburg at thank the Clarksburg there and Lotta was a couple of other ones in there but those are the ones were most. The grapes are grown and if some some of the grapes come from the North Coast and some groups come from the central coast will. Then you're going to see sh- California label or some of them come from Lodi and some comes from the central coast. You'll see California. It's one they won they When they split the three major? Aba's that's one California initial up in the label if it's from Monterey and Pasa Robles then old probably say central coast on a Labo. So that's what California means then even the so. That's that so you get this. California wine bumped. Since fetzer is such a stain will be grown and have You know the supply chain is all ethical and everything else to. It's gotta be pretty good vineyards. I mean you can't get that rating while just taking grapes from anywhere in anybody so this this is a very nice effort. It doesn't cost a lot. It seems to have been a nice effort for a number of years Where have you been noticed before I would've wrote about two years ago? It's it's a Nice Chardonnay if you like a little bit of Oak but not too much deserves that butter there's vanilla got the round of flavors. It's got a little salty thing going which is might be on lease. I don't know and it's got a flavor in it doesn't cost much money. It's not it's it's a lighter body one but it still got flavor. It's still they'll get a decent acidity as got a good finish. What else can ask for? So that's it for me We still have more. How holiday winds coming up things coming up for Thanksgiving and then party winds and New Year's things and Christmas and what have you but that's in the future so I'll be talking to you in a couple of days and that's it for me? Keep a cheap cheap

Do you want me to read the title. Let I gave you title Yes. These are blurbs from the audiobook people Ryan is now going to ruin my life further and let me hear them. Maybe hold it up to the guys just really quick full disclosure for the first time ever during this audio book. I am actually drinking and tweeting on reading so I had to for this particular chapter. So deal with it was that God knows I think it was called drinking and tweeting ago reared on Leeann laughter fucking oversized dentures before purring. Honey you're just fans fucker less. I'm reading from a book that I wrote in Two thousand thirteen shirt. Actually two thousand talk this published in two thousand thirteen so since then. Leeann has new teeth and they know they're good good good there. She went to my dentist. Louis and I don't have bad feelings towards them. I actually care about them so I am going back in time and just because I can hear the anger in my voice and I get excited to say certain. It doesn't mean I'm not over it it just means I'm reliving the past which brings up those emotions again and I don't necessarily know if you'll if can you be over that ever. I think you get through it. Yeah that makes more sense. But it's seeing them as got. I mean you're constantly reminded anymore. I'm very good until like pissed me off but they don't they haven't able to channel like how you felt back then right because I mean when you're when you have it right in front of you as you wrote it again. Thank God I wrote it. Maybe not maybe it was time now. I think it was probably very like therapeutic writing it. No- I cried a lot. I think you gave me some wrinkles. Those three months take us. I don't know I want to say more than three months. Yeah it was. It was a motion exhausting for both of us and we can only do one chapter at a time and check affect five hours. It was it was hard but we also I did editorialize it a lot but like enough so go and get it and if you'RE GONNA get it. Get our white lots the glass. It fits a whole bottle of wine. Hey and no one can judge you for having just one glass exactly and if you want to see it in action. It's on the Youtube series. Sadly which brings him back to my power gay luncheon where I had a pickle that was shaped like a heart what yes okay so I love Burgers. It's a problem. I love Burgers. Yeah but not this one over here. No Much No. It was fine but so we were into so house which is fancy and you can't actually take pictures and so allows because it's virtually never been no one in West Hollywood. Isn't there another one in Malibu in? There's one down into the Malibu one. I don't think I have either. I don't know remember. No I'm going to apply. I don't think that they're letting us in. Why not? Because it's fancy you have to be like fancy? We're not fancy enough. I think that now. I think you're definitely fancy and there's like when I like. I like a three year waiting list. I hear that there's a very long way to gas. You're not getting it but I love. I had a pickle shaped like a heart. Was it someone actually like us a cookie cutter kind of narrow because we all got burgers at the table. They got beyond Burgers. Nathan got a salad. Because he's on it but he doesn't need to be on a diet. They liked to tease and Mike. It was horrible but I'm not part of that beyond Burger situation but I did show them that. I got a heart shaped pickle and we all decided that they're all in the business so this whatever it is that we do that was like my good fortune and we. They told me that the best thing that we ever did and we need to continue to do. Is the Youtube series. They liked it. They love dead really like and to be honest. That's what my social media number started growing again really. Yeah now. They've credit off again. Well we just gotTa do a couple more episodes now. We definitely have to and I feel like yeah I mean I I will listen to whatever they told me So using direct. They are right there always right there. I mean they're very successful. These three guys that I am very close with. I think that the Youtube series is really fun. Yeah no it. It's Super Fun now that we have it down. It doesn't take thirteen hours. Eighteen bottles of wine. We were wasted a couple of air especially like the first first couple. Yeah it was trying to figure it out you like thicker what I am very tired. You you don't look like yourself. You seem like you're rubbing you seem tired. You Seaman agitated agitated because I've had four cups of coffee and I just had my first burger my meal today and so I just felt like I felt like it makes me jewelry. Jittery like anxious thirsty cap gone. Yeah so I just ate way too late in the day you know waited till two PM fucking Sisa Pizza Whitman. Great now right that free piece anymore bums me out. Yeah I know I can tell and ran for. I did four miles today. All that's the problem and then had all that coffee and no food. You're killing her. Sino seriously like you're not supposed to run for miles. Why did it? That's fine look at you now? You Corona okay. I am on the real with this current virus and scared to death because my friend went to Japan Chrissy. That was on our podcast. Her sister went to Japan from Pylon and is now in hospital PHARISAIC. No yeah I have a friend. Who does some editing work with us? And he was Hidden Hills. Hell family was going to go to Japan and they decided last minute to change to cancel it and go on a cruise instead because on a crucial Camille. I have no idea but I mean I understand let me. I'm traveling to New York City next weekend for a housewives Um meet-and-greet what does that mean. Exactly no fun. You just go and you talk to people in the answer their questions drink with them and you know the vagina monologues guys. I've done it in the past but we're not. Apparently they realized that some of US can't re you'd be so good at a vagina monologue. I feel like I feel like you'd be really good addition to what I've seen a couple a renditions of that. Yeah play. I enjoyed it. I feel like you would do a really good job. I WANNA I WANNA do. I WANNA write the giant monologues like the new chronicles like at an abortion at end sexually transmitted diseases. I didn't like there's things bachelor rejuvenation. Maybe like things that they didn't like right now and here that were you know back then. They weren't because it does. I mean I've only seen it twice but it does seem to change both times. They were different monologue. I mean the ones that the one the ones that I heard there were different. Monologues Book Anna Play. I don't know if it was about. It was a play back a long time ago. I think what sixties. I'm not sure sixty laid. It was like eighties eighties. Sure I believe it was because it wasn't humor you would know more. I don't know China but it was it was on. It's a moving piece for short but like I said some of us weren't able to read so I don't think they have us reading anymore. What you read you read just fine today. Say Me over.

I don't have an ice maker in my fridge. I have to do those manual trays that that was my old friend. And I don't it now but there's no water hookups by a fridge. So I have to. Our House was built in the twenty S. Honestly I think it's better because you can put filtered water filter get old and you don't know when they're working and not working and sometimes when I smell people's ice I throw up. I know what you're saying. I've totally felt like when I get to the bottom of this net. This drink that I'm having like and it just is going to be ice. It's probably going to be disgusting. I mean the power gays on Saturday. I don't want to name them. They did not allow me to put the ice on the Ice Bucket into my Rosa which I then thank them for. Yeah I get it. Check your people check that ice? Yeah I mean you know how many hands are on that bottle and then put into the ice bucket and then you know as they're smart there's no seriously and it's it's gross isis groups.

I'm talking shut up then now is it okay now. Are you going to try talking? I never know cheese though. Is You and your mom. I've heard so many responses about that chapter. They love it so much. It's so funny because my we brought my mom and she wrote part of a chapter so we brought her into the studio. And there's not many people that I allowed to tell me to shut up. But she is one of them but you can see our banter. She's great I've ever. It's incredible it's worth. I think it's chapter six. It's so good as weekly. Posted surveillance footage from the restaurant were adding Leeann. Had Dinner Kissing one another and looking sucking on one another's fingers at least been cindy fucking Crawford our the case. I might have just joined the party for now. It has to be this washed up country singer. But you know we've made good. We're good and I think she's Scott beautiful voice that's good. We will say any of her songs. I know there's one called Spitfire that she wrote about me because it makes me WANNA spit fire such day but it's true all right so reality roundup. Do you watch much your answer. I know I know I haven't watched the bachelor I watched. I've watched one episode once. So you know the premise. Oh Yeah for sure. It's a bunch of checks I do know that okay. This season specifically because I washed over the years like just sporadically. I know the prime minister. Whatever these girls are way too young to even think about getting married in the first place. You're hooked on this season right now. I'm hoping that because I'm disgusted by it. No it is really. The people are so aware of the cameras. It's almost like what a housewife is a housewife for too long. Yeah okay but no. It's like they're plotting in their own little brains and they're like they're doing. Pg Porn like it it's growth. Do they have reoccurring people? Come onto the bachelor and Bachelorette or is it always the same? I'm sorry I was always a different. Obviously different bachelor but like maybe the same women it would pick somebody from the season before to be the bachelor Bachelorette. That's the only person at the same. So this guy was on the Bachelorette. He didn't get God at check. Okay and now he is. Yucky is a Yucky. I he does. I know it's the photography as well. But they zoom in on his hands when he's massaging all the girls and he does the same massage technique on every single girl and he tells them all these falling in love with them. What and say I feel like he's sister wife then yeah and like he lives with his parents and West. Like what is it going to move them in where he lives with his parents he got. I mean it's us. He gives me the X. What's the x? It's something they say on my Love Island. Uk which is something else. Talk Very Sad. What's his name? Pay That Pete. He's a pilot. Yes okay. But he's picky is that he lives at home with his mom and he's like thirty or something so he's not a successful pilot. I don't know I think he is. I'm not sure but it's not it's all it's not adding up to me. He's doing this poem. The same moves on everyone time. He's in love with all of them. He had sex two of them and then he was like A. Yeah I had sucked like he just wrong on every level. He's he's like he's a robot their box. The girls all talk. So do you think that they do? They know that. He's like who he slept. On the thirtieth season okay the fantasy suite vouchers always sleep but the girls. That's what they know what they signed up for her so really then one girl. I felt sorry for her because she was complaining. That if he's up to someone else like she couldn't be with him but you watch the show. She does with butts but she waited till the end to all the other girls were out to give him the ultimatum. I slept with someone I don't know and you could tell me. The Middle Girl slept with is a freak. I already knew it when I saw her eyeballs. I'm like she's going to turn out middle. He said there's only three three three. Yeah the Middle One. Well she episodes of this. I mean where people can eat sleep with I. I don't know there's one or two left. It's it's this is the worst season for me because I originally thought he was adorable. Sweet and now I feel like there's a D. menance item CIOCCI. It's gross. It's like he's like he just wants to have a bunch of sister wives so it doesn't feel like he's trying to marry the woman of his dreams know how I love. Maybe two and a half times in my life you have in love. He's but he's no. Well I feel like I was I ll. It's hard because I it was a different kind of love. They've all been different. Show just trying to figure it out. He says he told three different girls. I'm falling in love with you. And he told two of them. I love you okay. What the how can you be in love with three different people? Unless I don't know I mean Mormons did that for. I mean that's somebody on twitter last night. We were going back and forth. He's like maybe he's GonNa just Mormom all in and then. I wrote a couple of funny things that I thought I wrote. Some airline like airline saying come fly the friendly skies bachelor saying come. Try these from the thighs. Good roads awesome sober very pretty. But we get off the pills and Alcoho- oh I wish I had them all isn't they're going to be Housewives UTAH. Is that going to have anything to do with more? I hope so I really I feel like so. My best friend growing up was more men. She had twelve brothers and sisters. Her name was net. Okay and she will freak. Does she have a husband? I do not know this is when we were young. We practice like go to. I'm not going to say what we did. That's great down. That's not going to look. She can have caffeine. Who WASN'T ALLOWED TO DANCE? You don't control and those people are the ones that behind closed doors are fucking freaks new good way. I knew some Mormon kids. They were friends of mine in high school. Not Very close but as far as I could tell I was just one mom and the Dad Nat not multiple MOMS. So I'd be curious to see if that plays a part in the new housewives. Yeah and then pilot P also reminds me of the sky. And the show that I'm watching about Nazis which doesn't help him. Be Watching hunters. No I started to I. It's disturbing this one's disturbing the man in the High Castle. Okay Yeah oh I just. It's just all disturbing. I don't know if I can continue. But the one of the guys it reminds me of him and he's not a good guy he's a Nazi. Yeah not good already had the X. just from that and then he said something last night on the show is coming to my German into comes into this. I was like who is a nutsy. Obviously he's not we as far as we know we're not saying that but having compared him to the show together gave me the X. Even more I've never heard you use the word expert. You're just throwing it around because it's on Love Island. Right now are happening we have to talk about. Caroline flack okay. Tell me about her remember. I told you I'm not going to change. They changed the host of the show. Yes I was a guy just loved her like she's sexy she's beautiful. She's like in her forties. She's pretty she has. She had it all and I'm like on. Amc and I just had tweeted her like a week prior. I can't watch love island without her because I can't. It's hard for me. I don't I don't I don't like change and I loved her. She was just beautiful and sexy and I just thought she was amazing and then it says that she committed suicide and I was in. I have a couple of friends in the UK and we were texting immediately. And I was just like this is not helping the third person from the Love Island. Uk Franchise Do. She commits us. What really but the the the the the guy that you really like He wasn't the nick the host of that show no it was always caroline a guy on the show. That was my favorite one of the most handsome ones. I thought committed suicide. One of my favorite girls commit suicide. She Caroline had an upcoming trial with a boyfriend of hers for like assault. Or something. I just I just feel like we with reality. Tv I don't know what it is but we need to have like. There are mental health specialists that kind of check on you before you leave him before you get in but I think that maybe there needs to be some continued afterwards. Because I don't know that. I think that she was fired. I'm not sure if she was fired or she set bound but even with that going from being in the spotlight now having being known for that and then being out of it. I mean that's got to be I don't know I just. We're not paying close enough attention to our mental health. I would think especially in I would think especially in UK that you would have some kind of like after treatment. I know. Do you have a person that you speak with like when I did big brother? They ha they have somebody that they assess you and you speak with them. You speak with them once. They're just one time right coming out of the House and make sure that you're you're okay for that moment but you know there's ptsd on all of these things and that you don't film that moment and the moment you're you feel free and happy out so I wanNA say rip and OUR IP and. I know she's in heaven and I just. I want people to take care of themselves. You know go talk to someone honestly like I talked to someone and I have no shame in my game and somebody asked me. Well why do you see like actress? I said so that I can get an unbiased opinion from somebody that I trust it like really. I think it's helpful even my friends. They all they all have their. You know there's a side that they're gonNA pitch or you want somebody that knows very little and can be outside person. That doesn't have a like a hat. His hat in the ring or whatever it is I see what you're saying. I don't know if that's the phrase young like he's not a dog in the fight You know so he can say well. You were probably wrong. You're probably wrong. And he's helped me so much And there's no shame in it and it doesn't mean you're crazy or sick it just means you want to be healthy and it. It helps you need to talk about stuff now. We had a good at home. We talked about that with one of our advertisers. Which will better help? Yeah I think it's really important so it's you know you can find it. You don't have to spend two hundred fifty dollars an hour you can find it online you. Can you know better how we've talked about it before it's available to you and take care of yourselves? I think that's going to do it. Yeah that's it for our show. I don't know I'm sad now. We should end this on a happier. Note Okay what about your show that you were just show? Oh yeah yeah okay. So I did. Chauffeur Net flicks did called family reunion. Have you seen it before because it's already it's in? Its second season. I hadn't when I got the show but then I went and wash it and it's very cute. It's like it's very innocent It's like a fan. It's a family show. They don't say bad words they don't say anything it's very like it's all about family and I don innocent isn't the right word because it's still kinda like touch on things that are a little bit. You know real life drama answered but it really is just a sweet show. Can you tell me what you did what we what was your character like yeah? I was a housewife everything. Heidi and I was basically myself and then I worked with candice from hotel maker. I know she's they'll in on the show but I really liked her. Oh she can act and she's beautiful. How do you feel like you did with your acting Jake? Help demy read like. He told me I was over acting a little but I felt like the script called for it because I was really being b. I T H. Did you throw wine and people's faces? No maybe I wanted to kidding. I was worried when I walked in because Kenny and I had beef from five years ago when they hired us Kenya myself and candice. I was thinking how this could go really left when I first walked in. I was still seven minutes early but I was lost on the paramount. Lot because it's gigantic and I was on the right stage but not in the right room you know op directional issues. So I walk in for the table read and I sit down. And she's sitting right next to me and they put us into circuit. I've got it and she's like Nice of you to make and I was like. Oh Shit this is. This is not going to be good. Oh no but I will say we did not like. We're best friends but we we were good co workers. I think we're both a little enthusiastic. Saving are mean lines do each other and she did outlive. Maybe I did too okay but we were high five because we got. We did pretty well and we worked together. That was only moment of okay. Yeah but it was fine. I can't wait. When do we know anything about when it's out? I'm not sure I'm waiting for them to send me all of the stuff I'll show you. I took some video and we have to get candice on the show. She'll do it she's still here. We saw great and she is apparently villain. But I like her and I also think actually who they don't get along with about Kennison's apparently a villain in real life is what you're saying. No on on how yes. She's you know but in real life she can sing. She can act her ass off and she's good. We'll just maybe we'll have you guys do a thing sing. Let scene can't we'll also pull out a script and she lives in Potomac so we'll have to wait till she comes back out. But I think the producers were really impressed with her and I think that they'll probably like everyone was saying how talented she is. I really thought she did a great job. I thought can you did a great job to. I thought everyone everyone was amazing. And everyone was nice and it was funny because the net flicks producer was we were. I found where the Ryan was of course classic. Yeah but only the night that they were showing it. Because my part was done it was like. It's a very highly guarded. I Mike Trust me and I was talking with one of the net flicks producers. These like amax. You work with your husband tomorrow. So he's the same producer he's GonNa show. That was fine. That's good okay. I'm very happy that he got a job on. Yeah I'm happy all across the board but it was just very. It's just like randomly found the wine room and just like my life is so crazy I have a question or are we allowed to talk about the lifetime. Cool headed please. You got it ready for this outfit.

California Highway One Road Trip (or "The Best Highway in the World")
"Hey what's up? You know how you're like a California stereotype I'm not a California's. Are you serious? You grew up on the beach next to the beach? You went surfing every single day not every day. Most days have like incredibly strong opinions about Britos. Yeah, I'm a man of taste. Had you even heard yourself talk what you're talking about right now? Here's the met that you're a walking California stereotype. You know what? I hear it now. High really and Jeremy where the accident prone travelers behind practical under less. We're here to dish out travel tips. TRICKS USELESS TRIVIA? Trivia mildly entertaining anecdotes and everything else. You need to avoid making all of our terrible terrible terrible terrible. Mistakes and we make a lot of mistakes. Hail so today we are talking about one of my favorite trips to take close to home for us. This was actually one of the first trips that we ever took together as a couple. That's not accurate. Is it as we're talking about? We went to Lake your hometown. Your Dad Right, but we didn't take this highway. Home my God, we were your. Your hometown is on highway one, It's literally like it runs through the center of town because we saw highway, one doesn't mean that we took. On, highway okay. Okay Anyway, we're talking about highway one. which is one of my favorite road trips close to Home It's very I. Mean it runs through San Francisco so technically. We could go there now, but it's like that's not the part that's exciting. Yes, so how we one is this one of the most beautiful highways in the entire world? It's the most beautiful highway in the entire world and. Anybody who wants to crack me in, that can fight me. You're looking at you. Florida keys highway. Fight US I. Don't know that, but apparently there's one in Australia that actually looks a lot like highway, one or Rotana. Get outta here with that trash on. It's great. I mean. Banana bread, but yeah, they got US beat there. We have voiced irs. We do have oysters kind of different anyway. The one goes all the way from San. Clemente which is down near like Orange County. California all the way up to a little town called legged, which is in northern California. It's six hundred and fifty six miles long and you. Definitely you can drive the whole thing which is great, but you can also definitely just take out chunks, and we're GONNA be talking about all of our favorite stops along highway one today. and. It is something that honestly I've been tempted in quarantine hop in the car and drive I have to because it's like right there, and it's gorgeous and like stop. You can just look out the window of your car safely with a mask on oftentimes you like ended up just randomly on like Oh. Hey, we're on the one. Oh. Okay, never off. The California experience, most people don't just trip and fall over and end up on the most beautiful. How in the world? We didn't all grow up on a town that the central like main street was high. One I can't help that I came from a really. Cute town we are GonNa talk about Jeremy's hometown today Morrow Bay. We'll get to that. We're also GONNA highlight a little bit of the history of you know the wine and the stops along the one there is some fascinating history and honestly coming from somebody that grew up in the Midwest I grew up in, Kentucky. We did not talk about California history. It was like California. History only came in when California became a state, and then it was sort of just like. Like Gold Rush, and then it was like Hollywood and that was it. We didn't get like combines of California history, but it turns out. California history is fascinating. WE'RE NOT GONNA go super deep into it because it's actually like thousands of years of native history are going to manage to shoehorn something about the Donner Party I'm just mark my words or you already did so. We can just skip on this. Speaking of history, so how was incredibly historic? It was originally built in the late nineteen twenty S, and it was part of what was known as the Roosevelt Highway, those fourteen hundred miles long, and it basically trace the entire western margin of the United States all the way from Mexico to Canada and almost didn't have a plucky tenacious woman. A May rindge fought for it tooth and nail. Sassy good for her. Sticking it to the man, while she was mostly concerned about keeping the public off of her seventeen thousand Acre ranch. Okay, so she wasn't exactly a hero of the common folk then, but she did eventually allow the highway to be built, and how one was designated an all American road in Nineteen ninety-six. There's only thirty one in the US. Yeah, the the criteria for being an all American road. It's really funny because it's like you need to have to. Two of the optimal characteristics such as like diners. No, it's it's like it's like a giant ball yarn requirement. There might be and encounters. There might be. There is a giant human sixties. There is a giant human nest on one. Yeah, we're GONNA talk about that. Highway wine I always thought was funny. Growing up because it has a different like names, and yes I'm just going to say in the beginning I am going to refer to it as though one because I'm from California and we do introduce highways with the and then the number do that in Kentucky. We say you take sixty five to sixty four to the now wait. Dammit I just did it. Become a California and guys can we're just GONNA put in like some fanfare. Sound affects now. Thanks So some other nicknames for the one are the Pacific Coast highway. Right also like the Redwood highway what he calls it that well. There's like there's like little stretches redwood. And it's all the way the north. We're GONNA. Highlight the redwoods here in this episode, and you're going to argue with me and tell me that there's one redwood. Okay, so maybe there are like California colloquial names, but generally speaking. There's only three nicknames. There's no one highway one and the Pacific Coast highway or Pch if you're cool. That's. His. Exactly what it sounds like kind of does. Our. That's enough history. Let's just get into it. Here's a fun fact. Both you and my dad actually grew up in towns that were on highway went we did. That's why we're so close. Actually, that's the only thing that kept us together. Who Wait what me and you're done. So my dad grew up in an area known as South Bay in Los Angeles. The areas. We're super, super cute, but the highway that runs through there. It's not like what you think is a highway. The one in that area is just like a big street it. Kinda runs through Hermosa Beach Manhattan Beach Redondo Beach. Super Cute area one of my favorite spots in La also scenic. Looking annoying street so I usually just like. Don't count that as one I do love to stay in that area like I love Hermosa Beach. That's where we stayed on hold up for a while and we were taking care of GRANDPA. Bob when he faked his own death on our honeymoon. which if you haven't listened to that episode, highly recommend it. We were actually like living our best life. They were waking up early and going on going on walks again twice. You Went Surfing Once I. Did go surfing once and we got into pokemon go. Yes, that is we were like. Carpe nine months late to the book among go train, but we did it so anyway. Definitely visit that area, but don't get discouraged if you're if you find yourself on the Pacific Coast highway, and there's just like a bunch of chain stores and just looks like La Right but Hermosa beach is. Like I was like had some trepidation like. Oh, we're going to stay. In La 'cause I'm not in La Person, but Hermosa beach is beautiful and the neighboring towns are really cute. Siebrechet, but my typically, if I'm doing highland road trip, I kinda speed through the L.. A. Section and I had right up to Santa. Monica and Santa Barbara, which are Super Pretty. Yeah, usually people aren't from California and they try to think about. The state looks like more often than other actually imagining Santa Barbara. It's like long stretches of beach. These tall waving palm trees Danish architecture fog. If you know what California's actually like, that's all Santa. Barbara Gordon Santa Monica absolutely gorgeous, one of the places that people like to visit in Santa. Barbara is the Santa Barbara Mission, and that's actually really interesting. Because all along the coast of California, we have the Spanish missions that are like peppering. It plays an integral part in the history of California. 'cause before the US acquired California, and that sort of just sprang into existence, according to my history textbooks, there was a white history textbooks. Yes, there is a long bloody history with the Mexicans, Spaniards and the native Americans right, and so these missions as beautiful as they are. Keep in mind that they were there to convert native Americans to Catholicism. They weren't happy places. It's a complex history. It is part of our history, but that's just. Something to keep in mind when seeing and visiting these places, so if you had up from Santa Barbara and Santa Monica the coast, you're going to get to a really quirky little town that looks super out of place right like we talked about Spanish architecture and the Spanish missions suddenly are going to find yourself in Danish town called solving. Can we throw in some Danish music? Danish, music found like. Clogs, is that yes, clogs honey. They just sit around with a bunch of microphones and hit clogs against each other eating butter cookies. They just have their butter cookies smacking against their clogs. The you hear all the crumbs dripping all the down. And then they do their little clog dancing. Dirk all over the crumbs. Americanized version of a Danish town which is kind of what solving is yes, solving is this Danish town There were a bunch of Danish immigrants that came to America looking for business prospects in the late nineteenth century, and they moved to the Midwest because she so when they all came to the Midwest, they brought within the Danish approach to education in Vlad Lutheran schools with an emphasis on creativity and poetry that explains why. I am such a beautiful and creative artists grown growing up the Midwest. But how did they get to California so? One of the Danes been ignored in Toft Dreamt of having a Danish. Benedict Norden. Yes he dreamt of having a danger school on the West Coast. Mainly because. If he has the weather it and so a plot of land opened up in the San Valley and he bought it, and then he took some of his other Danish immigrants and they were like. Let's get the out of the snowy area and let's go to the coast Bro I just did the shocker for our listeners. And, so they brought a danger school there with the Danish school, there was a Danish town and they just. Kinda put into architecture and they just had a little slice of home spring up around the school. It's a kind of actually a very American story Super American Danish story. One favorite things to do in solving is eat a bowl of soup at pea soup. Andersen's yet not solving, but I mean it's right there my favorite thing to eat while in solving our uber skiers. Able givers. What did I say verse? Givers Year Merger Uber's. What that was I felt like. Doing the wine commercial. Herb Gervin dirt was okay. We've been doing a lot of TV. Watching in you know in quarantine. After we finished higher King Shits Creek has been great. Highly recommend now. We have to put an explicit tiger on my God already dead. Okay, so it once you've had a bowl of soup. A piece of Andersen's and looked around at this Danish town and admired the architecture. If. You had up north on the coast. You're gonNA hit an area. The central coast, and this is my personal favorite stretch of the entire habit road trip. Hey, mine too, and that's because Jeremy grew up there. So gorgeous the first year GonNa hit is an area known as the five cities. So. There's Pismo Beach Avalon beach. Those feeling to I know my name show Beech Grove each and. I forgot I. You grew up here. Sorry. I'm GonNa tell you forgot them. Now everybody knows also apple is not included in the five cities. It's actually Osho, but whatever I swear. You're just making up Californian. Words Shelby. Yano come on. Allah so it's not really they're not really cities. We call them five cities, but it's. Little, coastal, very tiny towns, and they're all bumped up together, so you'll be in shelby each then you'll across the street in a royal ground. The street that you cross also have a one I think it was called oceanside. Drive. WHATEVER WHATEVER THE YELLOWCARD! Whatever the Yellowcard Saugus Ocean Avenue one of my favorite things to do in Pismo, beach is to eat cinnamon rolls gets I will drive hours out of my way just to go eat those. Cinnamon Rolls or so good. Yeah, it's called Old West cinnamon rolls and Espresso. It doesn't look like much, but. Good Good Goddamn. If you, ask for the icing on the side. They give you extra thing gosh take life. One of the other things do Pismo beach is to go dune bugging. They have these giant national sand dunes much like when we were in Peru, and we went June bagging in China and I was too scared, so I didn't actually do it, but wait. No was sand boarding, though San, but we did have to take buggies there. That was really scary. San Boarding in Pismo but doom bugging is definitely like the biggest attraction also fun movie fact if you've ever seen the Charlton Heston movie, the Ten Commandments. That was filmed. That was filmed in the sand. Dunes of Pismo and the director and studio had some disagreements about what to do with the actual set, because they had spent so much money on it, but the director was like. This is my film I belong. This belongs here, so they just settled on leaving it there, so there's random hidden set in the middle of the dunes. It got buried over the years, but and like an eroded, but like there's like super bowl fragments of. Egypt in business. Have you been there I haven't I haven't been able to find it. Wow, I'm sure it's a quick Google search, but I'm usually surfing went on there. Oh my God! That's the other thing to do now. Is That go surfing? Great waves. Super Crunchy. I don't know if that's a good thing or not. He's still what country means. We didn't tell that that's all right. Okay, so this happened Hermosa Beach, but since we're talking about surfing I'll bring it up now. There was a storm and after a storm, there's really like choppy waves wanted to say I did want to say Crunchy, so I went surfing day in Hermosa, beach and I like cut the crap. beat out of me and I came in, and you've got the crappy addio because of the waves. They were just like all over the place. Oh. This was after you went surfing. I thought you were like walking down the beach and just got beat up because you look like such a California stereotype or something. Why would they beat me up because I look like that's why I thought it was so weird anyway, so I got out of the ocean, and this guy came up and he looked like Matthew mcconaughey as brother, he might have actually been matthew mcconnahey. He was on like a BMX bike, but the BMX bike had an attachment. It was like a hook off the side so that he could balances surfboard while he wrote his bike on the bike path that's called, and he was just wearing board shorts and a shirt or board shorts and a hat no-shirt. Back I'd just want for our readers an image. No, he had a six pack under his beer belly because he was a middle aged man in a surf town. Matthew mcconaughey preparing for not as sexy role. Every Matthew mcconaughey role is sexy. Anyway, he came out right all right all right. He came up and league pulled his bike in front of me. He was a man, crunchy their brother. Oh and I gave the shot. Shaq, you can't help yourself can't and then? He just wrote off into the distance into the sunset. Probably that's probably when he started filming interstellar, I. Don't know I also once went surfing. We tell that. Yes. Can we please tell you this story? So I decided to attempt surfing because I'm married a stereotype and he talks about it a lot. And I thought if my clumsy ginger husband can do it I can probably do it. Kind of preface this, you keep saying that I surf a bunch. I'm really bad at it. No, you are like shockingly bad. I've never seen you stand up on the way. We've been married for like eighteen years ago. So. This is kind of only we'd been dating for like six months or so. So it was like all right. You can teach me how to surf. So the first thing you have to do is get a wet suit because the Pacific Ocean is freezing cold, not unlike the titanic. Going to be really warm and never, it's not absolutely not it's. It's horrifyingly cold. Beaches are nice in the south. Yes, so I go to the wetsuit shop and this dude with dreads hands me. A size medium didn't have dreads. Sun bleached hair I went to high school with him. Of course you did. He ends the medium even though I miss is sixteen and five hundred. Eleven or whatever so it takes me a while to try to put that on? A two hour ordeal because he was, it was like trying to squeeze my leg into a garden hose. It took a very long time to figure out that I'm actually assize exile men's, but eventually five hours later we get out to the beach with are extremely heavy surfboards and drag them across the which is like five miles, and then you showed me how to pop up for a while, which I did not grasp at all, and then we got into the water in my defense I also. Don't grasp how to pop. So why are you teaching me that? In my head, it was it was romantic and cute. Anyway, so we get into the water and he's like. Oh, he's a swim out to where the waves are breaking. It's all the way out there and just points off into the horizon like. The waves are obviously breaking. It's like Mwana. It was like that except for instead of singing me a song. He's like you have to treadmill your arms in the freezing cold water forever. You're really strong swimmer, but you can't user leagues when you're on your legs. It's because they're honest for tied together. Basically, so we're like treadmill freezing ass water for what felt like an eon just millennia, and then I look up as yet. Another wave is going to crash into my face and burn my eyes and I see this just horrifying, slimy giant blob of tentacles, just blooming at me then I realized there's like a cloud of a billion. Billion Jellyfish staring straight in the face. Okay, so this is cute. Except in actuality, the one jellyfish that you saw was about the size of a baseball it. It was menacing at me. It was it looked like it was going to attack me. Right in my face was the tiniest cutest snugly is jellyfish I've ever seen actually Jeremy his own words. He referred to it as harmless. Jelly, which sounds durable I realized, but it did not feel adorable charming in the moment, so I start screaming my head off. All these other surfers are looking at me thinking I saw shark because Jeremy didn't tell me this, but there are sharks. They're. Book is the Shark Highway. But. It wasn't shark season, but focus shark season. Oh my God. You're like a discovery channel special. Well she started screaming and there's all these surfers and they're like. Oh Shit because like. We get sharks there from time to time but people. From time to time. You're like jaws. Jaws happen, so she starts screaming and people just assume shark, and so they all start freaking out looking around, and then they all see like the like these friendly jellies. And Friendly Jelly. Jellyfish wasn't gonNA attack. You which found out that I know the difference between jellyfish by site who learns that like what class taught you how to identify friendly jellies and not so friendly jellies by site did not have marines survival. School. What do they teach you there? So I like jumped off of my surfboard that was very much on it, and I tried to swim towards shore, so I'd like flop off of my surfboard and I try to book it back to shore, except for your attached the surfboard like a horrible anchor, so wasn't getting anywhere, and I'm just screaming and flailing around like I'm drowning Benchley, Jeremy comes over and frees me and I made my. Terrified back to shore. It looks sort of like the the opening of jaws meets like Baywatch Baywatch starring like deer as soon as they're born. Alling around the water am I Pamela Anderson and Baywatch or am I like a deer that somebody throw into a pond, both that's what that's what they want to. Know, that's a compliment anyway. I never went surfing again, but I did get back in the water that day, and helped Jeremy Look for jellyfish was a good time, actually the state his life. well. We're talking about surfing and Moro Bay so more of it was also the next up on the road trip tomorrow. Base Jeremy's hometown. A It is, it is the most charming little hometown. It's like right on this little. A and there's a little walk, and then there's this giant rocked sitting in the middle of it in full view of the town, which used to be all volcanic plug. Yeah, it's called Moro Rock and it was it acted as a natural beacon for seafarers as early as the fifteen hundreds, and it was considered sacred ground for the. Linen native tribes see it makes sense for you to have learned that in high school like that makes sense I mean. We barely touched on it. speaking of high school. Jeremy's high school is literally on the beach near the beach. Literally on an touches the beach. We had a really tough time, though like sand got all over the place my God. Didn't you also say that? It was like a right of passage to get pooped on by Siegel? Definitely, it happened to me my freshman year semester. One I was about to go into a drama class final and a bird pooped right on my crotch. Growing up in California wishes to torrent of horse. I can't wait to read the biography version of your life. Did she used to go like surfing on your lunch. Break the happened one time Oh my God. Didn't your teachers used to go like? Go serving and got high. Definitely, it was like three of the social studies teachers. They're all retired at this point, so but I'm still not going to name them. they used to pile into one of their this one of them had a blue MIATA and they would put surfboards in there and then just drive the block to the to the parking lot and I get high surf on there 'cause they had a shared prep. Do stuff like that like you're cool, high school teacher. What do you do on your perhaps? For those of my students listening I know there are some of you you can attest is not teacher. Oh, well, my bad on my preps. I play with Mulan. Well sometimes you watch Netflix X. frozen burritos anyway moving on. My bad, so there's this giant rock and you can see it from every part of the town like it's. It's the icon of the town. Yeah, the Rock and be seen all over the place and it's actually like a it's an icon for our town, and people will come by trying to visit moral Rochman. They don't understand that it's actually a volcano. Some people think of it more of like the Blarney Stone or like a moon rock where? On display and so everyone that I grew up with had some sort of customer service job, and it's a very common thing. If you are dealing with tourists, historic big industry, somebody will ask you. Where is the Rock and literally you can see it from every single anywhere in the town. You can sit. And so we kind of have this running joke where we try to come up with the best like fake like fake locations for the Rock. What's your favorite? My favorite was. Asked me with rockets. Where's the Rock Oh? It's season all you just missed it. It's on its tour north. That's so cute. See at Disney when we get asked. What time is it three o'clock parade? We couldn't give them a Sassy and okay. We did the Disney episode. You need to drop it God, and then you guys also have that lame hand signal. I'm sorry that really cool hand signal. 'cause there's like. Oh my God. He's doing it right now. So there's the giant rock, and then there's also these three smokestacks that you can see all over town which I assume, we're part of like a jellyfish canning factory, weren't so you guys have the three stacks in Iraq, hand signal, which is kind of like Konda forever, except for one hand is holding up three fingers. I very very cool also I just want to mention speaking of amazing moments in Jeremy's life that will be in his biography. He was his senior high school class president and he ran as a joke, and he won because he looks a lot like Napoleon dynamite and it had just come out. Whatever You know you know. Yeah well. I got stiffed with having a plan the reunions for the rest of my life so fair. Didn't you also promise everybody that you're GonNa? Install Roller coasters in the parking lot? Yeah, we had like a candidate debate one lunch and it gets like sprang up. I had no idea it was gonNA happen so I just made these like very obvious. Empty promises and people thought it was funny so i. don't know what happened to the rest of your political career I'm glad that it ended there. Actually you sound like a shoe in for president. Honestly I mean. So the other thing that I love about Morrow, Bay, other than a charming little boardwalk when there's like salt water taffy in link, really good restaurants. There are a bunch of authors because Mur. Morrow Bay is a Marine Wildlife Sanctuary with a natural autre birthing spot like right in the middle of town with a bunch of Fisher-. Fisherman ship was the threat word, Fish Fisher ships, people should. Why are you looking at me like that? I'm just GONNA. Leave this. We're not going to cut this out. Fishermen ships. Yes, there's a bunch of ships people fish. They're called fucking boats do. It's not like. It's not like pirates like Dr. although that is a high school mascot and we do have a long. A long boat shows up once a year. A bunch of like pirate bars the you'd call crusty dives. There's crusty dives anyway. There's a of others in the bay. One time we were there and it was like in the middle of breeding season I guess and they was like forty different authors, and they all had tiny little babies on their little chest and stomach, and there was a huge security thing. There's also just like shit. A harbor seals and sea lions hang out around. A harbor and natural sanctuary. Yeah, you can spend all day just like hiking. Stand up paddle boarding. It's really cute. We actually do have an entire post about Morrow Bay so that'll be in the show notes, or you can just google things through in Morrow Bay practical dot com when you leave more to go north, you actually have an optional detour that you can take which is one of your favorite destinations on the Central Coast El Paso there? Okay. Yes, but we all just say Pasa Robles. That's horrifying. Really amplify it. Yes, speaking of things that you pronounce like a Californian. Can you order a Taco for our listeners lease? An Air DAS talkers day Scotto Four for four. Years actually bleeding. So, what are your favorite things? You do for your students actually. They think it's hilarious the. So anyway, Pasa Robles, or at bustle bliss is our wine country. It's lake, really chill wine country. I'm. GonNa be honest you NAPA can be a little. Fancy Schmancy Hoity toity. Very expensive PASA robles is really laid back. There's like free tasting tasting rooms. Really cheap chances reo walk in and like the owner of the winery might be there. Everybody kind of knows each other. It's really small, cute town, and we actually have two different posts about Pasa Robles, because we love it so much one just about wine and one about all the other things impact rebels that aren't wine. Yeah I mean Tasos like town. Motto is the only thing better than the vines are the vibes. No, it's not I'm just GONNA. Believed it though it's so realistic. So you go back to the wine. The next stop north after Morrow Bay is Cambridge, which is a really cute little town that we honestly only ever stop in for one reason lullaby reply, which sounds made up especially when you explain what it's made out of. It's a hybrid between a Logan Berry and the young Berry which I swear to God. Those are not real fruits. There's different types of raspberry blackberry hybrid so I. Don't you just say it's a raspberry blackberry hybrid then? Because we're cultured. Anyway, you got a Lens Bakery. You or the Alighieri Pie with fresh cream. It is really good, and it's well worth to stop a great breakfast lunch or dinner spot. Let's take one to go whenever. So if you're driving north from Cambridge, the next thing that you're gonna hit one of my favorite, like interesting, quirky historical stops along the one hearst castle. was built by the famed newspaper tycoon. William Randolph hearst. His life was like sword of adapted and citizen Kane, although it's not official because he tried to shut down production, so they couldn't off of his life. It's a whole thing sounds like it's definitely based off of him. If he got that Pissy. Oh, it's super base of his life. He built this like giant mansion in the hills, and then filled it with exotic animals. Are Still Zebras there. If you pass it now, so it's kind of like William. Hearse is like if Donald Trump and joe exotic work combined into one human with a giant castle living in the forties. My God was really accurate. Yeah, Yeah so this. John Norman Castle. Is Like one hundred and twenty three acres of gardens, there's one hundred sixty five rooms and nothing in it makes any sense. It was literally like he would just go around the world and point stuff and say I want that one, and then somebody would cart at home for him, and he'd stick it in his weird mansion. No architectural identity there's two pools that are like the best parts of the house or the pools. Yeah, they look baller. One's done in like a Roman Style and other one is supposed to look like mount, Olympus, and then you walk inside, and there's like gothic windows, but then you have like a Moroccan fireplace like he basically just walked around Europe which is. is how he got the idea to make a mansion. He walked around with his mom. It was just like I. Want to castle one day mummy, and then even walk out. He was on vacation with his rich family and was like. I'll take that one. I want to castle of my An actually stole the land from Stole Native Land Shocked. Shocked hired Julia Morgan. WHO's one of the most you know? She's like probably the most famous female architect time. To build this like super, Gaudy. Imagine I don't think she's like proud of it, but it was definitely a good paycheck for her. She worked on that for years and years eighteen years adding on random shit because he'd be like I bought a fireplace from Morocco, and I wanted to that Bram. He wasn't British by the way. That's just my Dushi. Willy Wonka Voice. But if you're the kind of person who goes to like verse, or like the Biltmore, estates, or any of like those mansions, full of rich people, doing ridiculous rich people things, you might enjoy a tour at hearst castle. It is really really weird. The thing is is that even though we're judging in Reno we judge all of these places and these ostentatious mansion. How real judging! We really appreciate win. Those places are like self aware they're like look at how like frivolous this was, and how ridiculous for scientists that? Likely talk about how Maranto not built a fake farm. Because she was idealising how fun it would be to be fake work on a farm, or even in the biltmore estates, they showcase like leave quarter, the serving quarters I should say. They don't do that in hearst, castle. You watch a welcome video, and then the tour guides and like Alex. Trebek's who narrates the bus trip up the hill random. All of them paint. Pioneer and like the like live the American dream and built the modern newspaper Blah Blah and it's like no. He was just like a rich spoiled dude who like fun mansion, and then had a bunch of really cool parties with famous Hollywood starlets which. That's cool, but can we not like? Make it into like a heroic story, right? He's not a hero like us, but I mean hearst castle. It's like super interesting to see when you do tour it. There are three different tours like there's the inside the garden tour, and like the Servants House very expensive. They're all very expensive, and you'd never see the whole house, but it's definitely worth stop. You can decide for yourself if he was just. He was a hero of the American dream or just another rich white dude. You're just rich, white, dude. Zebras look up the hill and look for the giant palm trees off in the distance. That's the castle. Couple minutes up. The road from her castle is my favorite stop in this area, the PS blancas elephant, seal rookery and send Simeon. There, they are the dirtiest animals ever they are like. If you took like a Walrus and Amenity, and then crossed it with like an elephant and dropped it in the ocean. What I got I got it. I got. Overweight, Minniti and then you just pull it to be longer. That's weird. Also I love manatees, no dirtier the manatees listen, Google, elephant seal right now they also make the weirdest noises and like just roll around flop, and even their babies. The we can. We just put in some some elephants. You'll noises right now. It, really assaults your ears. It sounds like a bunch of monkeys. They're like, but like they're my Petronas. Even the pups like they start out really cute, and then they hit like adolescent age, and they just start like moulting. All of their skin comes off, and it's horrifying, and they're just not cute, but like Super Cute I love him so much. They also can only move like three feet at a time. They do this like caterpillar crawl, and then they'll just like flop on the ground for like twenty minutes because that was a lot of energy. Wake up in the morning. I'm surprised that you're like making fun of them. When the both of us have so much in with these with these majestic. So you can just pull up in the parking, lot and goal and stare at the elephants heels for awhile it's free. It's awesome deathly. Don't mess, and then once you are done getting your fill of elephant seals. That is even possible. Keep going north and you will reach big Sur. This is the most beautiful stretch of the coastline It confused me at first because big Sur isn't necessarily like a destination like a police or like a town. kind of it's not true. Okay, like technically. Yes, it's town, but when people say big Sur. They're really referring to the stretch of coast. Hearst Castle and Monterey up north and it's it's just absolutely. The most beautiful coastline in the world is beautiful. It's rugged isolated like mountains, redwoods and valleys on one side of the ocean on the other. And then throughout the whole coastline, there's not really much except for like some really expensive houses, and if in a small cluster of businesses, you can't get the Big Sur, any other way than driving on highway. One electrcity didn't even get there until the nineteen fifties. It's actually a really interesting history. Can we jump into them. Oh, what a surprise! So after California magically popped into existence when white people history began, the area was inhabited by early homesteaders, taking advantage of like Freeland Connie just would show up and they would just hand you one hundred and sixty acres of beautiful coastline. Some of the home centers are pretty familiar names for the area like the bixby's. The pfeiffer is the Andersons so basically you can say that it was kinda worth it to risk a whole Donner party situation. Would you say that? Would you say that? Do you have to state parks named after your family My last name is the eighth most common last name in the world. I'm pretty sure that we have a park somewhere. Anyway, so there was a bunch of industry in the area for a while like lumber and limestone quarries and gold digging. Obviously, yeah, because you know the best thing to do when you live in such a beautiful area to ruin it and make a buck by everything that makes it wonderful. Yeah, but still the area didn't really develop more than just a post office and a schoolhouse. Eventually all that industry just gave way to tourism in the early. Early nineteen hundreds. They started building fancy resorts, but you still couldn't get there easily. During high tide, the road to big Sur back then was literally covered in water, so they blasted the shit out of the coast and put up a highway they built the highway between nineteen, twenty, one and nineteen, thirty seven, and it was so rugged and difficult that required thirty two bridges, the was built by convict Labour, and there were a lot of casualties. So, then are opened up to the world much to the horror of the early homesteaders. who were like we were here? which hilarious in the forties and fifties there was kind of like a group of Bohemian artists and writers that flashed a big Sur and started to call it home, and it began to get this reputation as like a creative artists enclave, which then led to these like wild salacious details and local newspapers, all the goings on in big Sur, one of the most famous people that went down was author Henry, Miller, and he tells the story of a man who showed up on his doorstep one. One day to announce that he was there to quote. Join the cult of sex and anarchy, which is exactly the reason that I moved to San Francisco actually but much like San Francisco. There is no actual Colt of sex and anarchy, and even if there was, you can't just show up and ask to join, only have to be invited but it was really just like a bunch of artists and writers working on stuff, really quietly, and like looking out at the ocean or whatever supposedly. Is Modern reputation as attached to creatives and artists, still like folks like Jack London John Steinbeck, ansel Adams many others have either lived. There has been a lot of time in big Sur. Lot of writers were inspired by Big Sarah for example Jot Kerouac in the early sixties. He took a taxi from. San Francisco to big third, totally wasted because he like wanted to sober up, but like in a really nice place sounds like here work. He fell in love with Big Star and was inspired by its write a book, which was definitely not just about himself about a published writer who is overwhelmed by new found fame and escapes to the Big Sur wilderness to sober up and. Get some inspiration. which you know is what I just said. Anyway he ends up really lonely returns to San Francisco and keeps drinking so I'm GonNa. Be Honest with you I own the book I have picked it up and read like thumbed through it several times, but I've never actually read it in the back of the book also includes a poem called C.. Sounds of the Pacific Ocean at Big Sur. That sounds like one of my favorite playlist on spotify it does. It's the one that you play when I'm trying to go to sleep. well. He wrote a while liking the sea and listening to the ocean, but it's actually a very long list of. Words I think he might have still been drunk while he wrote it I. Don't understand it at all. Just goes right over my head so today, the residents of big Sur still relatively isolated and have to travel either Carmel or Monterey for. Is. Also frequently cut off by storms and road closures especially during the reign because it causes landslides. Yeah, you're not guaranteed cell, service or Wifi, or electric or road access, but you do have to be really wealthy to live there, but it's also like insanely beautiful. The drive through there's this quote that Henry Miller wrote about raising his children and big Sur Jeremy. Would you do mean honestly? They had skies of pure as you, and walls of fog, moving in and out at the canyons, with invisible feet, hitters and winter of Emerald. Green and Summer Mountain upon mountain of pure Gome even mall for there was ever the unfathomable silence of the forest, the blazing immensity of the Pacific days drenched with Sun Nights spangled with stops. In Kentucky, we had drive your tractor to school day. So same Sam Sam. Miller did make a huge mark on big Sur and there's a memorial library. The Henry Miller Memorial Library right in town. It's like the cultural heart and soul of big Sur. It kinda just looks like a quiet, little bookstore gallery and cafe on the outside. Lights as the place for giant musical acts to show up totally unannounced while they're on highway, one road trip and give impromptu concerts. We're talking about like red hot. Chili peppers the pixies Philip Glass. Yola Tango Joanna newsom Arcade Fire. The December s just anybody cool. Get played there. There's like a Redwood Grove next to the librarian. Anyway, it's coolest thing ever big. Sur is literally been the cool place to be for everybody since the. The sixties like if you were like a creative and famous person in California, and you weren't just like hanging around and big Sur dropping LSD and hugging redwoods in the sixties. Like what were you even doing with your life and directing this directly at my dad, because he lived in this area in the sixties, and he was not dropping acid in big Sur which disappoints me you. He doesn't say that he ever did I mean. I'm just GONNA. Your Dad probably does not. Other than the library. There's honestly like not a lot else to see in big Sur, but it's not the place. It's not always that you go to do like beings. You should go to do like outdoorsy things. There's a lot of hikes. There's three different state parks located in big Sur Julia Pfeiffer Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park while the fibers really come up. I'm telling YOU DONALD PARTIES WORTH IT anywhere. Then there's Andrew Malaria. Say Park and there's a ton. Ton of different hikes, and all of them are favorite. Hike is actually from the KIRK CREEK CAMPSITE UP SUV Asante flats and speaking a camping. That's the best thing to do. There's a bunch of campsites although a lot of them are hiking, which is actually good because you can't get a reservation, Yosemite, you might as well take your chances and big ceremony right? Mara remember. There's also a lot of natural hot springs in the area. If you're up for a twenty mile backpacking trip, you can hike to Sykes. Hot Springs, which is insanely popular, but because of the popularity it's gotten a little bit like there's been a lot of like littering and stuff, so they'll close it periodically. There's also the Esselin hot springs at the EASTLAND Institute. I don't know. I've always just assumed it was a cult. No, it's not a call. Here's a description. From Google, the ASSULIN INSTITUTE IS A nonprofit American retreat center and intentional community, which focuses on humanistic alternative education, also the birthplace of the human potential movement in the nineteen sixties. What it is a Colt. Colt moves further. Here's a fun fact. Hunter S. Thompson. WHO IS FROM MY HOMETOWN LOUISVILLE? Kentucky was involved in the founding of the EASTLAND institute along with all this Huxley and like Joan Baez and like everybody else cool in the sixties, he also like tell all about the hot springs back when they were this hot spot for hip, Cool San Francisco as on getaways, and honestly we could just spend ages talking about big. Sur, because there's so many crazy stories like this. Luckily, you don't have to join a cult to enjoy the hot springs. You can take a dip here between one am in three am and clothing obviously is optional Balkan the Big Sur. Another economic thing to do big. Sur to see. Mickey falls the giant waterfall that's also tied fall, which means that during high tides, the waterfall spills directly into the ocean. There's only twenty five of them in the world and two of them are not only in California, but along highway one. Honestly, this is like a wonder of the world, and somehow barely sounds nearly as exciting as the rest of big Sur I don't know how you would measure that up to the human potential movement founded by Aldous Huxley Anyway. If you're incredibly wealthy, there are several luxury resorts big as well. All of them are just unreal. And Fontana, which are the best known it's like it's my dream to stay there or even just like eat at a restaurant or even just like be allowed in the doors. Yep, they don't let people like us then, but you forgot about tree bones. Oh, yeah, tree bone, so they have like. In this human nest, which is made out of driftwood sticks. Completely Open Air, you have to bring your own bedding for the nest, and it's definitely not waterproofs provides very little shelter from the freezing cold. But it's expensive right Yep like yours or Super Nice, but the nest is mostly like it's just really cool I actually spent my bachelor party in a year with a few friends just I wanna just quote you your bachelor. Party, was a you're in big Sur and yet. You tried to argue with me that you weren't a walking California stereotype. Whatever Our final must stop place in big. Sur is the big Sur Bakery. They have amazing croissants. All their food is good. Honestly, but if you get there early enough before they're sold out, you have Crohn's. We like to take a little bag of croissants and pack a little picnic Lynch, and there's a spot up near the ventanas parking lot where you can sit and eat. It overlooks the ocean and pretend that you're rich enough to Tana or cool in the nineteen sixties and an artistic LSD person. Once you ready to leave big Sur, and you continue to head north. You'll hit the charming. Little town of Monterey Monterey was made famous by the local darling, literary giant, and one of my all time, favorite authors John steinbeck in his novel cannery row. Named after the real life cannery row, which is where they can't sardines in downtown Monterrey historically, the centerpiece of Monterey hands down is the Monterey Bay Aquarium I have to be honest. Aquariums have been ruined for me because the Monterey Bay aquarium is so much better than all of them. It's a world class aquarium that's like a four on the forefront of scientific research and conservation efforts. If you've ever seen if you've ever seen finding dory, the aquarium there. There and they said that it was immoral. Bay is not actually in more in Monterey. We should've talked about that There was an aquarium in more obey that you took on the first time that we went. It was kind of just like Assads, seal alone and a cement room. Yeah, it was super abusive and they actually closed it down because they've they realized like Oh this is terrible. It was rated as one of the lowest one of our. Aquariums in the World World Yeah and somehow that ended up being we're finding dory was set, but actually it's set in Monterey. Yes, so they bonded after Monterrey in Monterrey is phenomenal. It's also a wildlife refuge with the best part of the aquarium is definitely the OTTERS, Winston hands down there all rescues or like rehabilitation and so they're like you know. They have little injuries and stuff and they're really cute, and you can watch them on live Webcam. We spent half the day wall writing the outline for this episode. We're watching on weapon I mean I was getting inspiration but well. Monterey is surrounded by a Kelp forest which we learned all about at the aquarium. It's like built into it right. Yeah, the aquarium kind of goes into the ocean and you can see the forest. It's not like they took the forest and brought it in. It's like you're in the actual ocean. It's a pretty baller aquarium. As yeah, it's also nearby. There's excellent scuba diving and you can. Can actually scuba dive through the Kelp Forest, and see all the wildlife, and there's like it's a really good site of seeing the giant Pacific. Octopus San sounds awesome. You are also pretty much guaranteed to sea otters, and even if you just go kayaking or like I don't know, hang out around Monterey, Bay, you'll see some others. The moral of the story of this episode is offers honestly. This road trip is better than all the others. Star. Sealed. My fate with my God, are you harboring anymore terrible puns? You liked it. Don't be sea-lion. That is why you're my bay okay. Come on. Now is the best one. It's a bit much honey. Okay, so so what happens after? High tide that we moved on, so you are going to. Nice good. All right so if You'RE GONNA hit Santa Cruz it's a really a little college towns like charming, walkable downtown area, and it stretches all the way from the redwoods down to the beach, and there's even a cute little steam train that will take you in between the redwoods and the beach. Is Really Cute, and if you spend like five minutes, their chances are. You're going to see a banana slug. Almost this. Keita's an honor. Almost they're really hard to miss You'll definitely see them because they are giant neon yellow slugs, slimy friends in their the mascot for UC, Santa Cruz as well as the patron saint of the area that you call them slimy friends, and it explains so much about why you think jellies are adorable. Can you imagine all Jelly? Being friends with a banana slug I feel like I can i. if that was a kid's TV show, I would get high and watch it. That's like Oh my God. Babe is that where spongebob, from Spongebob is a sponge, but come on, it would fit right in. I mean a squirrel lives in Bikini bottom, so why not? We got really off topic so speaking of giant neon yellow slugs grew transition. Santa Cruz is really really weird, but they kinda love being weird like. If you've ever heard something that sounds like super, really Hippie, Granola and you just roll your eyes. You're like Oh, my God California, which do several times a day. You're probably actually thinking of Santa. Cruz, without realizing it that Berkeley. Yeah, thing like drum circles surfers wearing Santa Claus rooms walking through clouds of weeds, meeting hippies who never actually stop when the sixties ended the bigfoot Discovery Museum. First of all. Big For discovery, museum sounds awesome. Second said clouds of weeds. Sat Out The legal work I grew up all right. Just outed myself. I have to leave California now, speaking of the Big Discovery Museum. If you like Super Weird, she can't be stuff. You should definitely visit the mystery spot. Who? What's the mystery spot as though I don't already know well. I'm glad you asked the mystery spot. gravitatational anomaly tucked deep into a redwood. Fire It's a place with the laws of physics. Cease to apply were up as down. Writers laughed and ball's roll up him foyer your very. Is it's alien activity. Is it a MAGMA VORTEX? Could it be dialectic bio, cosmic radiation or perhaps radius these? Just making was half the reason. The spots remains a mystery. That's why it's called the mystery spot I. Get it now that really though it's a blast, you blast and I did not make those words up there actually on the mystery spots website. Fun fact, we want stayed at an AIRBNB Redwood Tree House which shares a driveway with the mystery spot. Those combination of words are just wow I mean nothing weird happened. We did see a lot of banana slugs. There's also some really creepy history around this area. Santa Cruz is rumored to be super haunted. Because of all the alone native Americans over massacre massacred, make for the mission and the Spanish and everything. While, yet there's that there's that but I was also thinking of the coed ed killer. These Santa Cruz UC Santa, serial killer who murdered eight college girls and also his mom, and also his grandparents and also one of his professors at UCSC. It's also the location of the villa where hitchcock base the base imagine off of It used to be known as the hotel. mccray and employees reported like hot cold spots, ghostly voices, haunting eerie lights and even Satanists. State Nece, don't God. All the hotel has since been renamed the Sunshine Villa in a senior living home, but that sounds Nice. I also heard speaking a hitchcock that this where the real life incident that inspired the birds came from, but apparently I was just like a flock of birds that got really confused by the fog, so not actually that scary I mean I grew up with a lot of a lot of seagulls so I get it. We get it. You grow up on the beach in California off of highway one. We're all aware now. We're all caught up. Something, you cannot miss and Santa Cruz is also the boardwalk. It's like a proper boardwalk with games and coaches and stuff. If you've ever seen the movie us then, the boardwalk should look familiar, but don't worry because there are no tethered to speak of. How do you know you can trust me like Jeremy Literally? No one gets you references. It's not just me. Nobody understands your references. Anyway. Speaking of what the Boardwalk looks like Disneyland the Boardwalk at Disneyland is based off of the Boardwalk in Santa Cruz that's much more recognizable, said Sandy crews. Santa Cruz Who Sandy, Cruz. She's the character in spongebob. Any while you're there. take the steam train from the redwoods. Do The beach hang on on the boardwalk? Drink some verve. The friend is slug and question your perception of the laws of physics it's. A great time. Just north of Santa, Cruz up the coast. You will finally make it to San Francisco. Arguably the best destination on your highland road trip I would love to argue with you on that honey. No, our listeners already getting uncomfortably intimate peek into our marriage without a to do that on air. Anyway a lot of stuff do in San Francisco, but we're not gonNA talk about it. Because Hey, we already did an episode on. Noise, noise noise noise. It is first episode too, so it's easy to find. Just go to the first episode. Anyway much like L., A. High one gets little weird in San Francisco. It stops being a coastal highway, and then it turns into just like a street, and then back to highway, and then like a street, and then a different our the street, but like it's like how I WanNa win, so it's like the, and then it's the one on one, and then it's one and the wine, and then the one becomes the one on one, and then it goes back into the being the one. It's the one on one. It's very. Very. Confusing this is actually I'm just gonNA give like a little brief insight into my life before Jeremy. When I moved here to San. Francisco, I took a highway one road trip, and I actually was on the one the whole time, and I was like really confused. They couldn't figure out what the big deal was because it was just like farms and stuff and I was like I. Don't get those I. Didn't realize that I was on the wrong highway until I did the one with Jeremy for the first time. He made fun of me the whole time. But not because of that, it was just wow, we had a contentious like beginning of. I'm just GONNA. I'm just getting. We were obsessed with each other from day one. I have the divorce papers STRANA. If you WANNA just Athar after this is done. Tight! Anyway so about the confusion about the one the easiest way to find Golden Gate. Bridge is the one slash one. See how it's confusing, though anyway continue north. In the one a one become the one in the one one against the one slash the one on one where the same, but then the but wasn't new friend. Week. But then who is the one one? No honestly, we have the same confusing thing in Louisville 'cause there's like the sixty four sixty five to sixty four, and the to sixty five, so way more confusing than the one and the one on one in Oakland. There's the eighty eighty, two eighty, four eighty. I'm just making things up now. It's two eighty to eighty. Nine hundred eighty, five eighty. Six Eighty. Okay, one of US definitely made up by the way. We do a one eighty here and get back to this. Anyway you drive over the Golden Gate Bridge and then just north of San Francisco. We have a national monument called near was it's the closest old growth redwood forest to San Francisco, and it's named after famed environmental philosopher John Muir who is the father of our National Park System? If you've never seen old growth redwoods, this is like a must do unless you really hate crowds. In which case you should go to big basin State Park south of San Francisco, or avenue of the giants up North but more on that later it is. Is Pretty popular, but while you're in the area, and you're driving right through it anyway, you should stop at Stinson, beach and nearby, Mount Timo pious, they're beautiful places to walk around. Stretch your legs, and also the place where Jeremy told me he loved me for the first time. which is a story that we've already told, but just for a little bit of review for our listeners who don't remember. He was drunk, and he was wearing a Batman Onesie, and we were camping, and he screamed it and the whole camp hurt, so that's. Fun Chapter in our in our lives. I think so anyway. If you keep going north, you'll pass point Reyes national seashore, and it's a beautiful coastal area with again shocker a lot of marine life I. Do you sound so like that? You're just like Oh. I used to wave at rusty this seal every morning when I walked to the I dunno for between my work and my school, because I lived on the beach by the way, did we talk about rusty the seal? No, he didn't. So there was A. There's a restaurant in my hometown where there's a seal outside and his name was rusty and people would just like throw Crab Adam and he would pose a durable. Oh my God! I can't believe you literally walked by Rusty. The seal every morning wasn't every morning. It wasn't like on my way to school. It was on my way to work. Meanwhile, growing up in Kentucky, we had a dirty truck day. You mentioned. Uh, you very proud of that. Also tractor one did was not the same thing, didn't you? Don't you guys just drive tractors around? No, there was drive your tractor to school. And then there was dirty truck day. They're different days. I feel like you're making things. No I'm I look Spencer County High School. You guys also got the day before. That sounds like I went to sponsor adequate. Embarrassing. You guys also got the day off for the day before the Derby, so parents could drink twenty four hours early. It's the Oak. Stay and you can't go to the actual. Derby because that's Taurus. The locals go to the oaks, and they leave their kids at home unattended because they're gambling at the tracks. Do not do that. No, we did not get the day off of school so that our parents could drink God on sounds like you should have grown up in Kentucky, too I mean. We of were at school while their parents rejected. I'm just kidding. Totally kidding I'm sorry anyway. Back to California California going back to plant radius so you'll be driving by absolutely beautiful coastline, and there's a lot of really great hikes in the area. Including the hike to al-Amir falls. which if you've got like a little Bingo card that you're working on your highland road trip that would be the second tied fall on this road trip. Yeah. There's also a herd of Tule elk that live in point Reyes. And during certain times of reading season, the fall and winter you can see them tussling with each other, which was adorable, but doing it as safe distance, because they are beasts when you say like writing and Tussling, are they just like fighting each other, but with adorable names? Yes, okay, they're just slapping. Slapping their antlers together to the death, so that whoever is the winner impregnates everyone else and we call that tussling. Okay, that's just wanted to make that clear Our favorite hike in point Reyes is to Tamales, point and the trail goes all the way through the area where the Tule elk are hanging out so for ten miles or just like looking at elk. Giant elk tussling with each other and coyotes, their seals and shit, and it's really really awesome. We saw this seal their one time where you little snow like bobbing in and out of the waves, it was the cutest thing I've ever seen other than hiking and wildlife. The best thing to do while you're driving through point race is to get fresh. And I know that sounds really gross and I was very very not sure about it when I first moved here, but I've actually grown to love rosters, you can stop in an oyster farmer, and stand off the side of the road and get really inexpensive oysters. You can get an like pre shocked with shooters or grilled or barbecued, or there's all kinds of different ways to do it, and they're all delicious, or if you enjoy the manual labor, you can pick up a bag for the cheap and shut them yourself and we did that one time we got sixty oysters, and we were gonNA. Do a waster extravagant. I thought it was Palooza waste drive against. Start. With my roommates and we, yes, we sixty of them, and we started shucking, and it was just like twenty n. Way Too me. It's not worth the effort, but they are delicious. Continuing up from point, RHYS next. My next favorite stop is point arena, which is a lighthouse mostly because it's just a really beautiful picture. And continuing up from that, you'll eventually get to the Mendocino area and Mendocino is another famous wine area in California on the coast. Mendocino is one of my favorite places to take a little romantic weekend getaway. There's wineries. There's this charming little town. Really good food, a lot of really cute places to stay. You can go kayaking through sea caves. It's just a really great time, and of course we have a post about it. We'll put it in the show notes, or you can find it. Let's talk. Real quick. If you do go, make sure you have brench circus sixty two. They so it's really cute dog, friendly place to eat really good food, but my favorite thing is that they spread bird seed, and like little snacks outside for critters, and so while you're eating, you can watch like will California quails like scribbling around in the dirt, and like little bunnies and. It looks like the beginning of Disney movie does. moving up from Mendocino north, you'll hit fort. Bragg and glass beach on a glass beaches trash. Baby can't just say that it's very nice. The beaches literally made out of Rhode Address. That's true. Yeah, it used to be a dump and then nature, which is amazing. pounded. How did like waves on an over and over again and turned everything in the dump into this beautiful colorful glass? Yeah, so instead of walking on bits of glass. You're walking on this really Shaney like sand, but it's I mean the glad you are walking on bits of glass right, but it's not sharp like the sound of soft bits of. Colorful sand is what it looks like. It looks pretty well. Not Far north of Fort Bragg is yet, which is sadly where the one ends, and for the last time turns into the one. Oh, one of the one turns into the one one and then from when they were one, and then the one on one is over there, but now the one one. No, it's just the one on one. I was just the one. It's under one. There's one. It's just it's just the one which is the one. Oh One, not the one. So confused. Keep driving on the one you will eventually got to the avenue. The giants which is I think well worth the detour, because it's like a thirty minute stretch where you're just driving through these giant majestic old growth redwoods, and it is just the most beautiful drive ever in camp there, too. It's super humbling to be there. Definitely the right word for it was that one song that we always listen to you by Bonna their housing Yep Yeah, that's the one where he's like. Once I knew it was magnificent. Yes, but then there's the part where he talks about like cornflakes or something. No, you just always think that he says, shake and bake and stick with us. who sort is found something. That's not what he says. Shake and bake and stick with US and shaggy. Something's anyway. It's a really good song. It's on our California road trip playlist which we should put in the show notes. Okay. okay, so that's the entire row, but is there like a best time for them to go? I think the best time to go is February and March. Because the winter rains turn everything bright green, so like in September and October when you drive hilsor bright yellow gold, because all the grasses dried out, but in February and March they're bright green, and it looks like Ireland or something, and you can also catch wildfire season, so you'll have all these different colorful while hours popping up all over the place, and it's absolutely beautiful, and the what the waterfalls will be heavier. That's the right way to say that. Is Heavy flow. So, our row was south north and I. think that that's actually the proper way to do it. Some people ask like we go north to south. I, always say south to North because I think that the north end has like the more pretty stuff to see. Yeah, there's not as many stops like you notice like. We spent a long time on the section between L. A. and SF, and then the section north of that was. We talked about less stops, but it's not any less beautiful. In fact, that's actually. Pretty uninfected, it's probably less people. Would say yeah, because not a lot of people do the route north because there's there's kind of like no major destination, right like when you drive between L.. A. And SF, you can fly out of one of them if you're coming in from out of town, but if you drive north from SF, you have to fly out of like Eureka, which is a very small little town, and only flies out of La's Francisco and Denver Yeah. Also talked about how like your Rica is the weirdest. Thing for a state to have as its motto like the Kentucky. One is united. We stand divided. We fall and I feel like that's like really inspiring, and then California's just Eureka and I feel like that's super weird. It means I've found it because they found gold there. You're welcome. It's a free land that they stole is not as weird as New York's new. York is excelsior. Right the worst one. That's worse. So if you want to do the road trip, I think that you know we mentioned Eureka. The easiest ways to actually logistically do it is to go south to north and then fly from Eureka to a connecting flight, or you can actually take a shortcut back down to la by using the five. Super Not Pretty, but it's like are like really. It's like our fast highway basically seeking come back with the quickly. That was a Tracy Chapman Song. How dare you I'm going to have that song stuck in my head, so you need the one to the one zero one. Fast Highway. Different Joe well that sucks. Now that we're like in quarantine for the next. Who knows how long I've been really trying to think of what we can do when we when it opens up and we're probably not going to travel outside of the state so now getting really excited about taking this road trip in. Yeah, we can have like our own little car bubble and safely. Look at things from inside. Do you think they make in ninety five cars? Maybe. After this that'll be, Tesla. which is in the bay area? Anyway I am definitely missing taking a Roach I always say that Jeremy and I fell in love on road trips down highway one because that's just what California Romances made out of and I don't know I was always really worried. When we first road trip together that we wouldn't have anything to talk about, but that's when I realized that we have way too much. Much to talk about, and we never stopped talking to each other. It's been like what eight years now I don't know. Yeah, we really shouldn't have taken that trip. Because now. We're like stupid and love. Yeah, it's really gross, but I love taking I never get sick. We do all the time. It's a perfect weekend getaway. Thing that we do and it's. It's one of those once in. In a lifetime bucket list experiences. If you do get the chance to do it whether you're coming from SF. For La, and you're just doing it for a weekend, or if you're coming from further away, I would say to take a two week long trip to drive the entire coast and got really familiar with it is so beautiful would probably take a full two weeks if you're going to be. Be like stopping at every place and taking a Lotta pictures I think the minimum to see the whole. Thing's probably like ten days. Yeah, we are so spoiled live here like we really I know I clown you with your California thing a lot, but at this point it's been a decade and I guess I am kind of a Californian too, so we really do have the California privilege rather. I now regret saying everything I just said hopefully, this is inspired you to take your own. California road trip. When it's safe again we have links in the show notes for special guides on the stops that we talked about today. subscribe to our as newsletter like us on the tweets and the the grand. That's so embarrassing. The Book Oh my God. We're done. We'll see all next time. Stay safe while facebook. Stop it all my God. Good bye bye!

As we mentioned president, trump has sparked a firestorm by announcing his first rally in more than one hundred days in Tulsa Oklahoma, a city reckoning with it's painful past amid the nationwide protests more on that now from Jeff Bennett. Both the and location of President Trump's scheduled campaign rally hold deep significance especially at a moment when the nation is again confronting its long history of racial injustice. Next Friday is June teeth an annual holiday marking the end of slavery in the US and Tulsa Oklahoma, ninety nine years ago, this month witnessed what's described as the single worst incident of racial violence in American history. A massacre recently portrayed HBO's watchmen. Historian Lonnie Bunch heads. The Smithsonian Institution basically destroyed one of the most stable black communities and rare in the early nineteen hundreds Tulsa Greenwood district was dubbed. Black Wall Street for its hundreds of black owned businesses, white mobs of the city over two days, destroying millions in property and killing as many as three hundred African Americans even though these communities were trying to live up to the state ideals of A. A country that the country was ready for that now nearly a century later, archaeologists are investigating evidence of a possible mass grave site as Tulsa grapples with its racial past and present more recent incidents are also drawing scrutiny authorities tonight, investigating the arrest of a black teenager last week, accused by white police officers of Jay, walking down an empty street, a second team was handcuffed. The video blurred by police. Because in Tulsa, police official is drawing condemnation over his remarks about research on race and policing during a local radio interview. All the research says rushing. african-americans about twenty four percent less than we probably ought to be based on the crimes being committed the Tulsa Police Department says comments by Major Travis Yates. Do not align with its mission values or policies Yates says he was citing research, not offering his opinion, and that his comments were taken out of context. Bunch says this. This moment of national protests is a chance for Americans to challenge current injustice by remembering and understanding the past and I think the question really is. Is this the moment that can be transformed because there were forward of moments throughout the twentieth century? Can this be one event? Jeff Bennett NBC News Washington in Sixty seconds fighting the truth after police violence, the killing of George Floyd shot in New Light on a troubling issue. What police sometime say and what really happened? Hey, everyone, it's mainly Msnbc co-respondent and host of the podcast into America in response to the killing George Floyd. There've been calls across the country to de-fund the police last week. Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti to step in that direction. Saying city will cut the. Budget on the latest episode we get a closer look at Elliot's plan to take funds away from policing in order to put them back into the community. defunding the police is about shifting resources to other things, so you divest from policing, but invest in things like housing search for into America. Where be listening right now and subscribe. I'm sure mainly host of into America a podcast from NBC.

How's this going to work? And into away through the importance of music is to keep our spirits up into America a podcast about everyday people and power politics, policy and a pandemic have in shaping our lives new episodes, every Monday and Thursday. In some cases involving police violence, there is a disconnect between what officers say happened, and what? The evidence later shows as Stephanie. Gos- tells us. It's happened enough that there's even a word for it. Before, the video went public. There was a statement from police. George. Floyd's death described as a medical incident during a police interaction, but that wasn't the full picture now a revelation out of Houston that this was not floyd's first experience with an officer who would later be accused of police misconduct in two thousand four floyd pleaded guilty to selling less than a gram of cocaine as part of a deal, he served ten months in jail the officer. Officer! WHO arrested him? Gerald goings was the only witness now that officer is himself charged with murder and lying in a different case, go and pleaded not guilty and is awaiting trial. Fourteen thousand cases are under review. One, hundred, sixty four may ultimately be dismissed according to the DA's office. All of the defendants are minorities, and the overwhelming majority are African Americans. The DA's office says Floyd case resembles others where it appears officer goings may have lied. He would have been entitled to relief and mischievously. We can't necessarily grant that, but I'm see what we can do. Is Expression in American policing that? The first story is nevertheless story bill. Bratton spent decades running police departments of New York, city and Los Angeles often focused on rooting out. Misconduct is widely by believe that we have come a long way, but we we as evidenced by the events of last several weeks is clearly not where we need to be during New York. City corruption scandals in the nineties. Officers lied on the witness. Stand so many times there was actually a term for test ally. Then just like today, those misrepresentations and at times, outright false statements to the public undermine faith in the police force like in the two thousand fourteen cases of liquidity McDonald, in Chicago the seventeen year, old shot, sixteen times and killed. This was a police union spokesperson. That night is a very serious threat to the obsers. McDonald did have a knife, but the video showed he wasn't moving towards. Towards officers, a task force determined initial reports of the shooting were superficial and false, and McDonald posed no immediate threat. The officer involved was sentenced to seven years in prison for second degree murder, and while the bad acts of some often don't represent the many stories like these can leave. Lasting damage doesn't the public kind of throw their hands up and say well. Why should I trust you? What do you think is the important message to police officers? The? Most important message is the constantly minded what that badge means the also responsibilities in power event badge feed you Bratton says reform should focus on the importance of telling the truth trust can erode quickly. Getting it back takes a lot longer. Stephanie Goski NBC News. And coming up tonight, the devastating effects of racial tensions on the mental and physical health of African Americans. Back, with our continuing look at inequality in America, the enormous told the police killing of black Americans is taking not just on the families of victims, but on the African American community. Morgan Radford tonight on the mental and physical impact. Tonight a country emerging from protests of pain. After the killing of George Floyd Room, viral moments of racial bias caught on tape I'm gonNA. Tell them there's an African American man threatening my life and the deadly shooting. Archery incidents that are not just emotionally devastating, but also physically damaging to black people, every coolest shooting of an unammed lack person leads to worse mental health for the entire black population in into state in which occurred for the next three months, several studies show a possible association between perceived discrimination and mental and physical health. One study found that black people who were stopped several times by police were three times more likely to exhibit symptoms of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, and high levels of anxiety. Anxiety and stress. We had a candid discussion about the toll. Those experiences can take here. We are again seeing black people like minute `specially being killed in public. It's expectable. Do you feel exhausted by the headlines and send exhaustion? That should not be seen as an exaggeration. It's an exhaustion that should be seen as justified and that there is a real and a true understanding of why is there that exhaustion the by product of racism that dates back centuries from slavery to Jim Crow Segregation. It's a history of oppression that still impacts black communities today, especially when images of brutality serve as a reminder. How does that stress manifest? What does that mean for the black people in this country who are watching those videos? It means that they have higher levels of of mental health symptoms. It means they have more difficulty sleeping at night. It means that some of. Their logical systems are not functioning the way that they should causing a collective pain, but behind it they're still hope moving forward. I think we can continue to tell the truth and hopefully hopefully America. Looks at itself and. We have to make sure that black people black babies. Black children are protected.

Being Black in America always feels like you have a target on your head and your back, and your heart, and your soul, and your gut in your pocketbook. Always because that's all we've ever known in this country and we're fooling ourselves if. If. We ever thought anything else. And that's why. In this moment it's like the veneer and the veil has dropped in a way that again we've been around the block I've never felt this collective sense of anger and anguish and grief in as much is, it's inexplicable.
