Music that's old, that's new music. That's so new that you don't even know about it yet just subscribe to the playlist currently on radar platelets currently on radar playlist available on spotify available on Apple Music but obviously, when drake drops the new album, I'll listen to it and the different single songs that. Will be added to that playlist maybe one at a time maybe two or three at a time. It just depends on how much I love the album when it drops because right now I don't know I I can't say I'm really a big fan of the new song but let's just jump in. Right. Let's just here's what we know. Right Here's what we know. Are you ready? Here's everything we know about drake's upcoming album. Let's start a title. How about a title Drake's new album is going to be called it appears certified loverboy. Certified loverboy. Okay. I don't know if that title certified Loverboy I don't know. I don't know if that title. I don't know does that title give you any kind of clue what to expect certified loverboy? I don't know I can't say I'm a fan of that title. Certified loverboy. Titles kind of weak. Now, the May be good but the title is kind of weak. Do you you can give me your thoughts do you like certified loverboy? Is that a thumbs up thumbs down Is that is that straight fire or is that? Is that straighten the fire went out? Okay. What certify Loverboy Drake is gearing up for his anticipated album release. The rapper announced the title for the Upcoming Project Certified Loverboy, which is set to drop. Any Day now. Any Day now. Now does drake for go throw out the typical release at midnight. So. Are we going to wait to this coming Thursday eleven PM Central Midnight Friday? Do we wait for that or is he going to drop it sooner? Do we get new single? Do we get another song this week I don't know. It says he made the announcement earlier this week when he dropped a star-studded visuals for laugh now cry later. And that's the of the new Song laugh now cry later he K that's the next studio album certified loverboy. He wrote on Instagram for his seventy million followers. The name of the album is going to be certified loverboy. What else do we know the talk I've got some information here about the laugh now cry later video I haven't even watched the video I. I need to listen to the song a few more times i. do it just it didn't I didn't go. WHOA. May maybe maybe I missed something. So I, need to to look at it again. However according to one source loverboy drake isn't actually certified Drake's attorney attempted to file a trademark for certified loverboy, but the application was rejected to avoid confusion with a Canadian rock band loverboy. Oh Now we could talk about Loverboy I. I saw loverboy and concert four times. I do have all of their albums on CD AND ON VINYL And they just Kinda Played A. Put it this way. loverboy the Canadian band if you don't know who they are I'll I'll throw some loverboy onto the currently on radar playlist. I'll just pick out some of my favorites. I can't say like look here's the thing when I saw them live their live concert was so stinking good. It was absolutely amazing. Now it is crazy that the next time I saw them like two or three times and then Later on I saw them. And The. Lead singer man he I hate to say this. How can I say that because I don't this I'm not saying this to be negative I'm not saying this to mock because I'm not in any way shape or performed let's just say the lead singer had put on a whole lot of weight and when he first came out and I had already seen them multiple times when he came out for this particular concert like. WHOA, is that the lead singer like I thought maybe the lead singer was sick and someone else was filling in because he had gained so much weight and sadly the next day all over local radio they were mocking it making fun of IT I. Hate, I, hate that about him but I just say that even then their live show was amazing, they really were very good. Live. So. Whether you're loverboy fan or not. It's just interesting that certified loverboy can't truly be certified because I guess the idea to try to get a tray trademarked how did they put it? What's the exact words? Yeah trademark get a trademark for it was rejected a to avoid confusion with Canadian rock band loverboy. So I think that's interesting. There's currently very little information available about the project other than that it will be released through ovo sound and Drake's mysterious frozen moments company aside from laugh now cry later, there are no other singles are leaks from the upcoming album. Certified Loverboy is Canadian is the Canadian is is this is written weird certified loverboy is Canadian rappers six. There we go is Canadian rapper sixth. Studio album the follow up to twenty eighteen Scorpion on May. The first twenty twenty drake dropped his fifth solo mix tape dark lane demo tapes as a precursor to the album with the surprise release. The announced an mood be released during the summer of twenty. Twenty. Keep. It keep it here for more info on Drake's album as we get it right? Well. I will say this he's going to release it in the summer of Twenty Twenty Then clearly, it's gotta be dropping this week clearly now does he does does he just does he build the suspense lots of hints maybe a song? A lot of hints building and then Thursday, night eleven pm Central Time midnight for Friday morning, drop it, and then just have a bazillion streams and downloads. Or. Does he just drop it on a nowhere? I kinda I. Kinda wish for a drop it out of nowhere like nobody's even looking for. But the only problem if you do that I think the only problem if you do that I think I think the information spread. I'm just saying you don't get that initial surge and downloads that like many amount of streams and downloads. But I kind of wish you would just do that like like like maybe announce I'm GONNA release it at midnight on Friday and boom drop it on Wednesday drop it Wednesday night at ten pm like just Blow the whole model up just to spark some excitement and get people talking to get our minds off everything else going on in the world so I don't know what to expect from the album I really don't know. We'll have to see we'll have to see. Here's what I'm going to look for does drake still have the it factor in other words? Can he still generate I mean clearly he's got the number going to be big on streaming. Do they transfer enough to hit hit number one on the billboard album charts does does this album have any? Longevity in other words, it hits number one. Does it lasts more than a week. Is it number one all of the streaming services for a week but gone? Gone. In two weeks gone in three weeks I mean, what are you expecting what? What's your prediction for Drake here? What what sound? Where's he going to go here? Is this going to be like? That how title Certified Loverboy. Certify loverboy. GimMe a second here. I'm going to pull something up here because I'm just I'm just trying to think like I'm really trying to predict where this could go give me a second here. When, opening up apple music. Do a search. Go Drake here. Obviously that's easy to find right here drake artist. All right. Let's go through these rate. Let's Let's go. Let's hear see all. Okay. Let's go two, thousand nine. We have so far gone. Two thousand ten. Thank me later. Two thousand eleven take care. Two thousand thirteen nothing nothing nothing was the same yeah, they believe. So nothing was the same. Two. Thousand Fifteen. If you're reading this, it's too late two, thousand fifteen what a time to be alive drake and future two thousand, sixteen views which I think is an absolutely brilliant that is completely over I blew up and it was massively successful i. just think that the Albans deeper and there's a lot. There's a lot of interesting things going on that album I just wish you would have got more credit there. Maybe he did get enough credit. Maybe I'm maybe you know who may drake always likes to act like the world's against him. So you know man, you didn't get enough credit there I, mean the album was major successful but I think it maybe deserves a just a little bit more critical appraise right two thousand, seventeen more live two, thousand, eighteen, Scorpion two, thousand, nineteen, th care package two, thousand, twenty, the Drake Lane Dark Lane Drake Lane Dark Lane. Demo tapes. And then certified loverboy that title just seems does the title indicate to you that Drake is going to take some weird turn here? Is Drake GonNa. This a reinvention of Drake GonNA reinvent his sound. Is it going to go a different direction? I don't know. But there you have it drake certified loverboy dropping this week. I'll be covering it. You just stay tuned. You subscribe to this podcast you subscribe you follow our playlist and you'll be you'll be the first to know when I know. You'll know all right and then we'll talk about it. We'll talk about the album. We'll see if I'm disappointed or or look it can go a couple of ways. Drake could try something new and different direction everybody's like what the heck was that or it could be. Yeah just another drake album nothing new. Don't risk it. Don't don't try anything new and I I think I think it's time for maybe a little transfer an evolution. I think Tom Drake to evolve a little bit. I'm GonNa make that I. Think it's time I do think it's reached that point where we need something. That maybe you could say he's already been trying that I maybe I think I think maybe we need something. So he could go with something completely different and everyone can be like what the crap of or he could just go same. Oh, drake and I think many people would be happy with it or possibly he tries something new and it blows everyone's mind and they're like this is the greatest thing in the history of the world and it changes the direction of rap for the next ten years to strike have that in him to change the game again does he have it in him to change rap for the next ten years? I. Don't know. I don't know, but we will have to see. Thank you for listening to this special episode of the currently on podcasts on a Sunday afternoon coming to you from Texas where it's about nine hundred and seventy five degrees outside and well, that's what's going on.

We're gonna talk about t not just any macho talk to erica gower who is A incredible man with quite quite the background. Here's a delight to talk to you. But he's gonna tell us how and why his specialty macchia company decided that direct to consumer was a way better choice for them than traditional wholesale how they communicate with their customers in a phenomenal way. How they have amazing educational resource a full library with an unbelievable info about macho in it. An how email and storytelling as been there their best growth strategy eric. How're you doing. I'm doing just fine shirt. It's such a pleasure to be here. No i'm glad. So what's what's your story. What's the name of your your brand it his breakaway macho breakaway macho. And what does breakaway macho sell for. Muscles really great macho. Most people think matches macho in the way that the nineteen seventies. A lot of people thought kind of like wine was wind. You had your your your earnest and giulio gallo in the jug. And the carlo rossi. You're too young to remember those days but you know in the same way that that wine has really and coffee another example. You know it used to be you know in. My mother would put on her part of a maxwell house coffee you know and then sometime in the nineteen eighties starbucks and pizza kind of more. European style coffees came along and then the third wave coffee came along with the blue bottles and the verbs and all those fancy coffees and something very similar happened with. Masha it. It started off as a kind of just like this beverage out of milk and sugar in it because the call he tended not to be so good and it had these associations of health and so people kind of wanted. It appears some people. Stop drinking coffee in an effort to get a little healthier macho but people didn't really realize that in japan. It really is this kind of it. Can be epicure inexperienced. A lot like good wine or good coffee a is and so there was nothing on the market like that first of all. It's hard to find it. Hard to find. Farmers that can actually produce really really high quality but i limited fan for quite a long time. I was there for nearly twenty years. All in and i got to know quite a few of them and One thing led to another. And i started drinking tons of the good stuff and turning my friends onto it. I i the food world. I am a cookbook writer. And so i'd love chef friends. And i started giving them to them and they were like holy crap. This is this is so good. I just can't believe how good this is. A business was born. I never really meant to to To start the business in that way it was really demand led thing among my friends. So you you went to japan. You discovered that you loved macho so you've got your own interest here and you wanted to share that experience sharing it with friends and they said okay. We like it. How do we get more of it. And this is what led to a business. That's exactly what happened and you was this before after you. You were in japan for you said close to twenty years. Now you're you're back in in california In in marin and did you to do the business start in japan or the us sort of the us. I had come back from japan in two thousand and two and was was doing a private chef. And as as i mentioned is writing cookbooks. And i had a column in the san francisco chronicle. Most people in japan experienced mantra in a ceremonial context. And as i said the t. almost as a secondary role in ceremony but for me it was just this wild kind of drinks. Like you know it's not like other teas you grind up the entire leaf so it's green tea. That's that's Not oxidized it's just you take the green lead. The green tea leaves steam them for six seconds. You dry them in these crazy dryers that looked like medieval Big hair drying rooms. It's really trippy. And then you store them store. Those those Steamed dried leaves in paper bags. They're like ten kilograms each in freezers in the in the in the t. processors japan. That's how they do it. And so you put a little hot water in that powdered tea and you whisk get around either with a traditional whisk. Funny little bamboo tool that is used or is our preferences an electric whisk and we saw it up into this really really foamy drink with hot water and you drink it. So it's it's got a lot of texture and mouse feel. It's almost like a really thick espresso. Yeah it has like a Like a soft velvety taste it and it is this like the the straight powder is just this brilliant lovely. It's like a micro powder ground so fine it. Is this just bright. Bright green that this it is a very attractive color. It looks like this must have. There's no way you did this without food. Coloring is the level of green or passing it through fukushima. Yeah it's got like a black light glow to it. So how do i still. I could buy much at the store. I'm guessing it's not great. I can get much at starbucks. What how do. I tell the difference between good or bad macho because i think this is where your brand has really excelled is in being able to communicate the difference and get people hooked on the difference. So let's start there. I'm i'm a consumer. I'm like yeah. I've had much at starbucks. I like it. You're saying you've got you've got the better stuff. What's the difference. How do i tell so. We got the bright color. And obviously if i try them side by side it'd be say like one is subjectively better you know when consumers into the here's an even a fancied market you know i mean whole foods is not offense he market but but fancier whole foods and engine. That and you might see a macho in there. You've no idea what it is. It might say product of japan which is a good sign. But you can't look at the color because it comes in a tin usually usually comes in metal ours comes in glass. I can tell you why two minute but you really don't know what you're getting can't look at it. Let's not tastes. You're just sort of trusting maybe usually based price whether it's any good or not and you know it's it's a gamble so i feel sorry for consumers that way and then if you go into starbucks you say gimme a give me a macho. They'll this thing is is. It's typically i mean. They still do this in the early days. They used to. Just mix the really quite bad quality macho with powdered sugar. It was kind of like we're break odd colored drink and you know frankly. That's what a lot of the the macho isn't the united states You go into any cafe. And if they've got a macci drink it's unlikely they're paying what they probably should be paying for good macho for the sole reason. Sugaring it up. You know the good stuff should it should have that foamy cappuccino like mayfield different than regular traditional t. it's got and really the dead giveaway. Is that like neon color. The stuff at starbucks is like a darker color color. Like cheap macho reminds me of creative real colored all right. So you're you're in the us. You're selling macho two friends. At what point does it occur to you like this is more than a side hustle or this should be a business of this should be a formal business or an online store like. What's the what's the lightbulb. Moment there well. It was just the sheer amount of interest. You know like i was. I still have a lot of ties to japan. Even though i've i've been back you're eighteen years but on my trips there i would. I would visit by guys and killed. Oh and i would stock up breeze suitcase full back and that kind of thing and again. It was not really meant to have any kind of business. It was really a self fulfilling Endeavour and for my friends but but at one point they just got to be too much. It was just like okay. I need to figure this out. And so i had some meetings with with with the best growers That i knew these guys really really cared like the the truly obsessive ones and so they were teachers and and i absorbed a lot from them and holy crap. This really is a business because nobody's doing it and they're not even doing it in japan. Frankly so there. Really is not a very robust market in japan for this super high grade team of it. Because you know there's another it sells but we buy most of basically i wanted to look at. What point do you launch the website. And then how do you educate people on the difference. So how'd you. You've got the the website ups parkway macho dot com. It looks great really good-looking. What when did the psycho up. I incorporated the business in two thousand ten and spent the next six months. You know getting it ready and figuring out what we started with three products and we went live in the spring of two thousand eleven. Which was i mean. I mean talk about timing you know. The the the fukushima nuclear accident happened exactly right around them and so literally agricultural products from japan. Were you know radioactive literal sense but among consumers perceptions of japanese agriculture products. They thought that the the nuclear accident at fukushima had had permanently tainted all japanese agriculture including rice all and that was just a you know that wasn't true. It was very contained to around the area but yes so it was. It was a rocky start in some ways but but i really gained a lot of confidence that we're onto something because we were. We were still growing like crazy even given that so i i was. I think it was validated. That wow this is something that people you know. They really don't know about but they wanted anyway and so it was really our job to educate them on on what this is and so like. I mentioned the beginning. It helps to use metaphors. The people are familiar with so people are familiar with coffee in their familiar with wind. And it's really a short step to understand macho used those metaphors in a similar way and there's no replacement for actually tasting it. Because you know you can. You can read all day about how to swim but until you get in the water a very different experience so yeah. Education has always been a really key part of it and i'll just mention one part of our website. We call it the research database. I couldn't find anywhere on the internet that had collated all of the many many turns out there's more than a thousand studies medical and clinical studies on some of the health benefits fund on the efficacy of macho in in clinical settings. And there's a lot of research in japan about this and there's quite a bit in the united states actually so there's a town of citations and it's just it's just it's it's beautiful it's aesthetic. It gives you a chance to kind of pause and that's a lot of our messaging to this maybe a good chance to segue into had mentioned that storytelling in the beginning. A big part of what we do in it really is because you know at the pausing so important in this world we live in. You know we are just jangled. Nerves are jangled especially this year with covert in our current administration. Everything else but but you know information is taking us in assaulting us everywhere return. Life is just so different than it was pre internet and even a couple of years ago. I think it's different and making a couple. Daily macho really does hit a kind of pause but this is what. I talk about a lot of my letters. I write letters to our to our customers every month. And i love these letters and it really helps me figure out why we're doing this at all and part of it is this idea pause and and let's just take five minutes. Surely we can afford five minutes in our busy day to breathe and to put a pot of water on the kettle. And let it. Boil sifter mancha into our little cup you know and carefully maybe measured the temperature. You never want more one hundred seventy five degrees else. Will skol stelter poncho you. Daddy used water hotter than seventy five degrees. And really take your time and it and then sick with it for a minute and just you know. Don't do anything china to check your email. Try not to multitask. It's to me. It's just a tremendous resetting Sets a a good a good start of the day when you do this. And i think that that that's kind of core message that we have and i think that resonates blow people out his l. Absolutely with the signal to noise ratio in everyone's twenty twenty life is is pretty horrifying and like my house is the worst like seventeen alexa devices yelling at me. And there's always a screen on within view because of god knows what reason as we should reduce center like eight or something. I think it is literally nine of them. I used it as a whole house speaker system. But the result is like there's always one is squawking at my god that's hilarious. It's got a little out of control. It's okay well all right when you launch launch the breakaway bunch of website. How did you. What was the process to get the those first few orders to start getting traction in the marketplace. Well i believe that well first of all. Let me say we've never advertise. We have never advertised. Etel is so. Yeah you know. I think google and facebook. They know the quickest ways for small businesses to lose a whole lot of money. Unless you've got some kind of venture backing or used to have very deep pockets you know understanding the the the curve to actually use these platforms profitably for small businesses. It's quite difficult. I would say and i would agree with that people. Yeah i think a lot of people strange so that wasn't our focus. The focus was communication. I mean you know in the beginning there. Aren't that many people to communicate with. Because you've just launched a website. But i i wrote a lot of blogs erupted two hundred some different aspects of macho blogging. When when people ordered you know part of our thing was that we would. We would handwrite a note on every single order. We still do this to this day. Even though it's untenable we anyway. It's one of those things you know. Reid hoffman has often said do things that are on scalable. And i totally believe that. I think it's right and the writing personal notes is completely on scalable but man does it work. You know you treat the customer. Not like they're so used to getting amazon in these. You know these crappy these these weird plastics pillows that come in and it's you know it's just experience. I don't like degrading because there's a use for that. You don't really care if you're buying cat litter. Amazon package tours. You don't need a you need a note from the cat litter people necessarily. But if you're if you're selling a product like we are it makes a difference and so you know we we like to make the unboxing experience nice too. I mean it's become a cliche at this point but it really does matter. You know you get this cool box in the mail and it just sets the tone for this causing that we were talking about like. Wow these people really care about what what they put in the sparks of what they say you know so so. We talked to customers. You know like so somebody orders. They live phone number. I'll call them up. Why not you know You know we text people. Then that's becoming a bigger part of our business sexually We're going to fall on sms. Communication in the next few months We'll certainly be there by spring of next year. And i think that's going to That's gonna make a big difference for us as well. We have pretty high open rates on our emails. Something like sixty percent with fairly high. I know it's kinda crazy. Sixty good i mean. I don't wanna say it sounds like i both. They're they're interesting. They're the opposite of spam their their little messages. That people seem to resonate with and people look forward to getting them. I get notes all the time and you know these emails. How how often do you send them. Only once a month okay. So once a month we send one out sixty percent open rate and that so that own channel that email marketing. That has really been like. That's it helped absolute arrive the people signing up for the list buying of course the repeat customer rate seventy percent open rate. Oh my god. Yeah but i think with from all the research. I've done with sms. It's i mean it's something wacked. Like ninety eight percent. Open it you know. Ninety eight ninety nine per typical. Yeah which is pretty crazy. So we're we're we're going to do both you know we're going to keep doing what's working and i disagree slightly longer form with with email and and i'm going to try to get little tiffy with With the tax. Because you have to be and we started on this really thing called a cool thing called community it star lots of bunch of like celebrity and rappers who were trying to communicate with fans directly versus going through all their layers people that they have. And so you know people like drake and dead. All these other people were were using this platform to send out texts and it really does feel like you're getting a text from drake or whoever it is and It somehow a connection to the owner of this thing and we got one so we started sending out little texas. Well that's working. Well so we're gonna we're gonna continue that but it's very non commercial. You know another thing i'll mention. There's this incredibly cool company out of england called jeans. it's i think it's spelled h. Ut and art their emails that they send out in their messaging is so artful. I can't even tell you. I mean i would encourage listeners. To go there and study at we did and we're trying to emulate it but because we have our own way of doing things but but it's a it's a great example of how to do email marketing correctly and it turns out that you know there's less marketing it more talking. You know what. I made more more listening and more less less less. Commerce driven say just went high denims website and they. It's not. I'll put it in the show notes and there's a a banner a pop up banner that comes down and the it's an opt in for a pdf that says this user manual will help you do your best work ever a user manual for creativity. Yeah who's note of that. Yeah the high denims and it's like men's jeans but they're about creativity is very interesting. Yeah so they do create. It's not just about like the transaction. It's more about you like door year. The other story in the cyber person who. It's safe to say that most of us have been doing more shopping online lately. I know i have. There's just a pile of packages in front of my door. I can't even get the front door open. But if you're an ecommerce brand that means you might be seeing more first time customers.

When i landed the websites. Beautiful it's consistent. It's got this take a quiz section as that's our lead. That's your light. Cult main called action on the hero. And then we've got this this monthly newsletter with a sixty percent open rate. You're doing sms with community which sounds really cool. And you've got this resource library or so. Tell me this is all just to sell expensive. But t so. Tell me about the storytelling. It's you know it's kind of romantic in some ways like you know this is. This is a thousand fold fast. It's been around for thousand years. Thousand euros fad. That would be a cool headline tagline. So where i like. It might actually it might. It's very cool like you know. But but in the end the ceremony thing really is not for audiences outside japan. I feel other of course. Small minority of people who want to emulate such a thing and there are they do exist their societies. All of world do this but you know for most people. They just aren't. They want the kind of health benefits. They wanna make a cup of tea to reasonable amount of time. They wanna they wanna look at it enjoy beauty and so that's where we sort of broke away from the ceremony and made it into a drink. That is really a kind of ideal accompaniment to the twenty twenty many ways the more gennday the world gets cooler this product. Is you know the absolutely wait was this. I'd always on shop. Fire was on something else. No we were on big commerce in the beginning and it was. I wouldn't call it a nightmare but It was more difficult than it should have been and so we finally made shopping. And we're glad we did. Thank god big commerce. I know i know sound effects. Were big commerce. Yeah anytime someone mentions big commerce. I'm sure big commerce is fine. i'm just side. I'm sure they're fine to is better. But yeah so you were like all right. I was on big commerce. Saw shop by just had to get over to abusing the soundboard again. Well let's talk about the migration. What i'm in the process of doing a show migration right now i used to a migration service to for it. It worked extremely well Cart cart driving. It's just like shopping cart. Migration dot com or something. Those guys i think they're out of somewhere in eastern europe. I think polling. Maybe i wanna say the customer support reps had like definitely slavic sounding names. Yes exactly and they're they're pretty rough. You know we use them in the beginning to do the vibration. We wound up firing him. They they didn't do a very job. We had all kinds of data that we that we need it in certain ways and they just were not able to deliver. They were not able to explain why they they were not. They couldn't cooperate. These didn't do the work so we couldn't use them. We wound up using Then we went through one more. Who couldn't do it either. And then we went through a third one that somebody had recommended like this guy who had done a lot of you know we wound up paying probably more than we should have been at least the workout done and we're glad we did it now absolutely Just like good fast. Cheap pick two. Is that what you have to deal balance when dealing with professional services. That's exactly so on your site got this quiz says when you land on the homepage and a big beautiful hero image. That would totally work as a video of just like macho being poured in slow mo that in like twenty seconds loop it but degrasse. We've got a hero image and it says. At grades macho which one is yours. Take the quiz. And when i take the quiz it takes me to a page called quiz. Is this type form. It looks like a well styled type form cool and then it says what's my experience level. Same experience how do you prepare it. Well i been going with with cold just because it's the easiest. Clearly i'm i'm screwing that up. No no the whistle it sounded better foaming wind would be cool so the quiz tries again. At where you are you add milk. Do you like it cold or do you just want to drink it straight up. I didn't know because there's other vendors that have Shop specific quiz solutions. That are just really quite extraordinarily possibly accessibly expensive and yet here. You've got type form an off the shelf solution. That works really really well. Is that like they're customisation here or are you happy with this but not much. I mean i can't really go nuts with with the typography. You can't really do what you wanna do. I mean it's limited. It looks like it matches. It's on brand kindness. I don't. I don't know if i agree gets brand and it can be. You know. it's not off but it could be so much better. i mean we wanna. It's something we want to address in the new year as to how to make that better. And that's a that's a big priority for us actually think does generate quite a bit leads and and You know people find us. Dea that and you know pretty much. All organic search is how we get found. Well you have. I mean just the tremendous amount of content. You do on such wet very deep on a very narrow topic. Certainly that has to have tremendous benefit. You know you would think so. It kinda does i mean like if you just do a search for macho. Think we appearance page to everybody. That appears on page. One is kind of this. You know these these sellers and there's a lot of news oriented stuff on page one. But you know i would think we'd be better off than we actually are has given given the content in slowly from gu. I ran into salita. Google at a at a ted conference in vancouver and he was matt. Cutts said you met tutsis. Yeah you're an independent huts i did. I was peeing next to him in the bathroom match. You know. here's this dilemma. I've got we've got more content than anybody on this subject. What the hell. Why aren't we ranking on page one. You didn't really have an answer for me but he he he didn't. He didn't email me later. Because i gave him my card and i slept. I would just so appreciative. You just take a quick look at it. And he did bless his heart. Very sweet man And he said. Google think your magazine. You're not really e commerce. I google magazine. Therefore it's not it's not really ranking. I mean it is but not what and so. He didn't have a fix for it. He just said keep reading. I mean you know in the end. It will bubble office. What he said Wants i win it will. I'm hoping is right in one day. We do get on page one Keep writing you did. There's nine hundred eighty six results for this site index. Google so good work. So what's the you're saying like well this quiz. It doesn't quite have the aesthetic we want. What's what are some of the other pain points with having this direct to consumer ecommerce business for you customer services. I love customer service. I do all of it myself. And i spent a lot of time doing it and i think that's important founders to do like a lot of founders kind of can't wait to get away from from customer service. I never felt that way. I'm starting to feel that way a little bit. Now after ten years doing this but It took me time to get tired of it. It's really the best way to to get to know your customers. I mean there is no better way i mean. Do you really want outsource you cut services philippines sick so especially for product like this so yeah mean in the end it comes back to communication and you know these are the people buying. You're saying why wouldn't you want to talk to them right. And if you can guide them toward product that is right for them. You know there. There's something satisfying about that. And it does have a cumulative snowball effect i would say. First of all people are thrilled. That i answered the phone and actually talked they get to talk to a human which is increasingly rare these days and say them all to actually take your time and and really treat them like human and and talk to them. You know like solve their problems for them to me. That's that's a a kind of privilege her until it gets unsustainable which is starting to do. And i you know when i hire someone to actually take this over from. They're going to have to do it the way i've been doing it and i just need to spend my time doing things because there's a lot of fires on the ours in the pit. That need my attention. So i i am looking for somebody to take the silver but i haven't. I haven't found anybody yet. I'm sure i will but it's a big job. It's like the import job. That's what i would saying a lot of your listeners. If they're merchants listening. And i'm sure there are many you know. Don't outsource your your customer service. This is the heart of the matter. These are the people who are keeping you in business. that's why that is quite the the mindset shift Yeah yeah what are some of the. What's another pain point in this business. Another pain point You know just people asking the same questions over and over his pain point fix for that so they go to well. Let's say the good. I guess there's not a contact us page so turn interesting. You have under like the footage has helped call us email us and telephone link in an e mail link if these were like went to a contact page and we lead with an faq. Maybe we could preempt some of those questions to If people actually bother. I mean if linked to call probably click it you know. I think it's helped us. I really do. I think it's got us to where or at least partially responsible for. So you know one point we probably or but said that that's a good problem. He's the kind of firms wanna have and we did create a very exhaustive. Cue that question you possibly think of was in there but does anybody read it. Not really you know. It's there's three questions that people ask over and over a might solution is always put those at the top of the contact us page and then you say hey like other questions could be answered immediately. So you're going to spell the benefit out for them. You can answer your question immediately with this f. With our faq so hopefully they've got the top three then maybe they check the fake you when they see that the top three were actually helpful and then it. Maybe the top three is like. Hey where's my stuffer. Hey how do. I do a return or exchange. Well those first two. You can get an app like or look up to handle the order. Look up so like ninety five percent of those go away and then the other returns and exchanges use an apple inc bold returns manager. And now you can really streamline that process. Well i'm going to have chris our technical guru listening to this and copying down. Exactly what you said so there. Because you're saying like i you know. I like doing the customer support. I think it's valuable but the annoyances know go through the same things over and over. Well okay maybe you don't have to give up customer support. You just need to automate or slow down. Parts of it. Yeah perfect sense. That's pretty good. As long as i'm here for this interview or any other recommendations you need god i mean well. We could talk about apps. Ramona there play the. Oh and that's that's been a godsend for us. I mean it's it's worth many many many many many charms the two hundred dollars a month. Two hundred fifty dollars monthly fee. We pay you know we've been we've been using this app called route. The ship shipping insurance. Right it's incredible. Yeah let's do. this is through. This is solved so many problems for us. So for small fee. It's a percentage of the of the total. It's usually about one percent so somebody pays one hundred dollars for masha for about a buck. They can get The shipping insurance and and and route. We'll take care of all shipping headaches. You send it to them. And they'll they'll they'll make the customer hole in whatever way necessary you know. It's it's actually started with lloyd's of london. Great british insurance company. Yeah so this this out has been great for us because it will just take care of any problem about a package not arriving or being late or whatever it is you know. It just automatically gets routed them and It's worth it's weight and goal. I would say that's that sounds pretty good. And i've heard other people sing sing. The routes praises it has cost us. Nothing the customer base. For cody eight cents. Oh my god. They would rather pay the ninety eight cents guaranteed deliberate great. There's nothing likable using a route. Or maybe clyde and they said wait why like we don't pay anything for it. The customer it passed through to route and they said well. Why don't we just offer that insurance ourselves and then re ship and so they did it just created a product called shipping insurance that people could optionally add to the cart and it actually was a pretty decent revenue driver. I'm sure was yeah. I worked pretty well. And then the ensure the quote unquote insurance is if they can confirm. it's gone. They just they ship the item now. It's the one adventure was usps as you could. If an item doesn't show up you could call the local post office and they take it very fairly seriously what's a key takeaway here. What's like the one thing that you now you. You very told your story. You're looking back on it. What's the one thing that you think is is paramount to your success. What's the the cornerstone here. Where if you had to go back in time ten years and give yourself a piece of advice. Hey here's the thing to to focus on to stick to. What do you think it is. What do you think is driven. Your your success This marathon success. It's like slow and steady do things that aren't scalable right right. Those notes call people. Don't try to be you know. I know door nash. Like venture funded acquire customers at any cost paying ungodly amounts to do all these things. You know Do the fashion way which is just talked to people who who are your customers really. Is that simple. We've been harping on that but I think that's been the key and it's very underrated because it frankly a lot work you know. Nobody really wants to do the amount of work that takes. But god i it to us. It's been you know very much worthwhile. And into customers to delight. A customer is nothing better. I mean you know we just have ridiculous return rates for first time purchasers becoming second honors as a result of this so it is very easy to to keep people if you just treat them. Well right i mean. How hard is that to understand. I really liked that takeaway. I think that's fabulous advice do things that aren't scalable. Treat people like people washrooms repeat and see what happens. You're saying hey invest in relationships and that that relationship with the customer is still a relationship is an particularly beginning. I would say you know. I mean if you're full going and you know you got two hundred employees. It's obviously harder to start over a do that right. But but for anyone contemplating starting a new business or just like getting shot and like really trying to figure out how to make this thing work you know. Just make all the focus on customers. Like i mean. That's amazon's secret. Vitamin bezos has been saying that since day one is it really is true. It's just like you know the people who buy your stuff or the ones not anything else that that's it. I like a fabulous. Let's leave it there. Where eric where can people go to get your fabulous macho well.

3 Easy Ways to End Negativity Bias: Episode 12
"Welcome to the mind, gal podcast, this show, where we break down anxiety, one show at a time and give strategies to release your negative thought patterns so that you can live your most fulfilled life. Get ready to challenge your narratives and gain the tools, you need to overcome obstacles with your host Monica P tech few jetty, a national certified licensed, mental health, counselor with over fifteen years of experience, helping people achieve their goals. Guys hope that everyone had a great week it starting to get sunny here in Michigan. I, I am from the Detroit metro area of Michigan. And the weather is always pretty funky year in the springtime. I actually hate spring. It's my least favorite season. I would rather have summer winter and fall. I'd rather just have winter roll right into summer because I think that spring is just a giant TS. One day, it's thirty degrees. The next day, it's seventy five degrees, and it's really annoying because I can never know what temperature it's going to be. But all that to say it has been really nice. We just wrapped up Memorial Day weekend. Thank you to all the veterans and everyone who served, and it was a fairly decent weekend was a little rainy. But anyways, we're not really here to talk about the weather. Are we today? I want to talk a little bit about our thought process surprise. Surprise. It's what I always want to talk about. But if you're anything like me, people can tell me all of the great things about me. I will only remember the one thing that they said that was not so great is anyone with me on that, you guys been there, too. It strange that works in our lives. But for some reason it is just easier to remember the bad than it is good. But it turns out that this is so common that there is actually a term for it. It's called negativity bias, and it is what we are going to talk about today negatively biased. It turns out there is there is actually, an evolutionary need to lean toward the negative and the reason for that is because back in the day, when we didn't have the luxuries that we have now we needed to be wary of the danger. Well, we're not going to see the danger if we see the good and everything. Right. So we are programmed to see the negative, we're kind of wired to see the negative, because the negative keeps us on our toes being alert to all of the bad stuff could quite literally be a matter of. Death. So if you read my blog this past week, it was all about the brain being a jerk. We talked about the sympathetic comparison sympathetic nervous system. Well, the mic della is part of the brain that is responsible for emotions memory and survival instincts. It's the mother jerk of the brain apparently, it uses about two thirds of its neurons to look for bad news. And this is according to the psychologist, Rick Hansen, who did studies on the brain. So he the mic delays like the front of me that we cannot live without. And also it just kind of goes to show you, that, when you having Zayed's a lot of people feel like they don't have a very good memory. They lose focus and that is also because of the amid delay it affects our memory. So that's just a little point for you. So without going into too much scientific detail though, I just want about online, thus the negativity bias is when we cannot shake ourselves from thinking of the negative. It doesn't help that we are wired to do this. So when we are also printings -iety, we tend to hold onto the negative longer than average Joe right? I do think it is important to take a second here to differentiate differentiate, how men and women react or negativity bias. It's probably not so much of a surprise when I tell you that women tend to internalize and men tend to externalize in other words, men, become angry women become sad. That is a an average that does not say for everybody, I'm never gonna make gross generalizations about men and women. But studies have shown that, that's how it is manifested. But here's the good news while we are predisposed to think negatively, we do not have to be a prisoner of our negative thoughts. I think that's pretty good news. The single most important thing to overcoming, negativity bias is self talk. We all know what self talk is. But I wonder if we really utilize it. I mean, they've done studies around this in the single most important thing to overcoming, negativity bias is self talk. It's the messages that we send to ourselves, this is because we have we have to train the brain to appreciate instead of depreciate, you know that saying that goes, you can't solve a problem with the same level of thinking that created them. Well, you can't solve negative thoughts with negative thoughts. You have to counter them with positive ones, and today's episode, I'm going to go over three easy things that you can do to begin countering your own negative biases. The first one is started gratitude journal, I know that the sounds cheesy but role with me for a minute. Personally, I think we have to do more than just think thoughts, there's no accountability to just thinking good buzz. It's plus we might think something positive while at the same time. Yes. Budinger selves. You know. Yes, this was a really good opportunity. But I don't think I'm I'm qualified for it. But when we write things down. It means we are forcing her brain to stop what we are doing. And consciously think about the things that are good. Only the things that are good because it's been proven that multitasking is not a thing. You cannot multitask, your brain is wired to do one thing at a time. So if you were writing down things that are good. That's all that you're doing is you're thinking about things that are good. So I did a gratitude journal for about a month. I was really surprised with how much it helped my mindset I didn't write long entries. I simply bullet pointed things that were good that day simple things like I got my car wash today or having a good hair day. And sometimes things were bigger, maybe I had a conflict that day and I handled it really well, but. The things that my negative brain would never have allowed me to notice before I noticed because I did this gratitude journal. So I really am a proponent of it. I'm generally a proponent of journaling and writing things down. I'm a writer by nature, and that's how I've always processed. I don't want to assume that's the way that you process. But when I say journal, you do not have to think, oh you have to write long paragraphs and sentences. And in very artistic elegant words, you don't have to do that. All you have to do is bullet point like rate a list. That's all that you have to do because stopping and ready to down it forces you to think of what was good and that's really powerful. The second one is right down negative thought patterns. I know this sounds like the of what I just told you to do, but here's the thing we can't solve problems until we know what they are the same mystery thoughts. We can't change our thoughts until we know what negative messages. We are. Sending ourselves. So I want you to make two columns one column with negative thought and one column with a commerce, for example, a negative thought might be, I'm an idiot whereas the counter thought would be just because I made a mistake does not make me an idiot. But how often do we go around and we tell ourselves we're an idiot, or we degrade ourselves a lot, so that we don't look, maybe we don't look ego Centric, or maybe we don't take the thunder away from somebody else, or we don't wanna put ourselves in the spotlight for fear that people might expect too much of us. So we often walk around and say, oh, it was nothing or. I'm an idiot, or whatever it is that you're saying, but those are negative messaging and overtime. It really impacts the way that you view yourself over time you're going to see a pattern and this pattern is really useful in helping you to see where you're negative thoughts, generally reside for some, it may be about your intellect. Others might be about your parents, while others might be about your personality or maybe you have a mix of all of these things. But the point is seeing a paper will not only be I opening but will also help you to manage it. So reading a gratitude journal, but also reading down, what you're negative thought patterns are. And those can kind of go hand in hand to, if you want to, but I prefer that you separate them, because there's two different things in their two different ways to get to where you want to be understanding yourself. The third one is mindfulness. So this one is really important being aware of what is going on. In the moment, will help you to notice if your thought patterns skewed and. What you need to do to set it straight. It's not easy work being mindful, especially if you live with anxiety because executive tells us to live in the past, or the future living in the president will take some time, but it is worth it. A few episodes ago. I talked about managing expectations of ourselves health. We put too high expectations on ourselves straight out of the gate. We're setting ourselves up for failure. So I want you to remember this when thinking about mindfulness as well. There are days when I'm successfully mindful Alday will other days. I'm only mindful that I'm feeling hungry, because I forgot to bring my lunch to work. That's okay. Over time it will get easier. I've been practicing meditation for about a month now. I do it every morning after I work out and before anyone else's way and only do five minutes, five minute meditations, I do anxiety, reducing and I do gratitude meditations and just mindfulness meditation and their five minutes. And that's it. And I think that is actually the reason I'm successful at it. I would've told myself that I needed to do ten minute meditations every day, I would end up feeling rushed. I wouldn't get any benefit from it, and I would eventually quit. But what those five minutes, a day have done for me, is to set my day off. On a good tone. But not only that I've been doing it long enough that when I'm feeling stressed out at work or wherever I go into a meditative state for a minute, or so, without guidance, which is really nice. I can I can sit there and I can just be mindful of what my muscles are doing, and what my eyebrows and forehead or doing because those tend to get really scrunched up and, and I can be mindful of my thoughts and sometimes I'll even write down. This is what I'm thinking right now. This is what I'm feeling this is a situation that's happening, and it's really been helpful for me. So my point is taking baby steps will get you to where you want to be faster than if you're not taking any steps at all which clearly used point to get you nowhere. So today, I gave you three things that you can do to stop your negativity bias, but know that there are a lot more than three things, but I just wanted to start you off with three easiest things see baby steps so to recap the three things are one started gratitude journal again, this does not have to be well. Written with no grammatical errors, as can be bullet points, just things that you're thankful for to write down negative thought patterns because it's really important to understand what your pattern of thought is so that you can attack that more specifically in three. Mindfulness being mindful is really important. I do recognize understand that when you suffer with anxiety, being mindful. And in the moment is really hard because it's counter to anxiousness anxiousness again you live in the past few of in the future. But you don't live in the present. But it's so important that you do live in the president. I hope everyone has a great week. And remember, you deserve to live your best life, and I'm going to help get you there have a great one guy.

Episode 339: Air Fryer Tofu, Cooking Frozen Chicken, and Stress Snacking
"Hi i'm marie. Maclellan creator food jars. And i am joy manning. A writer focus on food and health. Welcome to local mouthful. We're here to talk shop with obsessive. Home cooks everywhere. This week. we're talking about air. Fryer tofu cooking frozen chicken breasts and stress snacking but first. Let's compare notes on something we read this week. this is it's really kind of a nothing throwaway little article but i thought it was Interesting particularly in In light of our leader topic about stress necking but cnn felt like it was newsworthy enough to write an article about how as america americans waited for election results to roll in on tuesday wednesday and thursday and friday as well soothing their anxieties with snacks alcohol which On the one hand of course we were like that is how you soothe your dresses. You know not. everyone is a me. Go do a workout to soothe my anxiety. When i looked over that article i was like cookies. Check chinese food check ice cream check. i m eating all of those things. Yeah what was that. I'm afraid i'm going to run out of my election cookies before the election is called. Oh no after bake more i definitely. I have made 'em two of the same chocolate cake recently in part because it was trying to figure out a recipe but also who doesn't need some chocolate cake around right now And on tuesday afternoon scott ran out to target and things have been a little weird in my neighborhood. Everything is all plywood up because of the election. And because of The issues around the Police shooting in west philly recently But so everything's enclosing by like five you know as they're afraid of violence And so he went to target in the afternoon thinking. Well maybe we'll get mice cream. There was no ice cream left. And the cnn article Confirms that that was the case across much of the country right I tried to plan for comfort food eating like when i did make a meal plan this week even though i have been really falling off my meal plan and even this week's meal plan has not been going according to plan exactly like on election that i plan to have pizza but my pizza dough strangely didn't rise. I don't know what the heck happened. I guess maybe you're as maybe the water was too hot. Who knows could i was. I mean like let me just obviously have been very distracted all week I could have just screwed it up when i was mixing it together I also used white whole wheat flour. I have not really used before. So maybe that i. i don't know whatever the case. The pizza dough was kaput. I couldn't use it and instead i Turn to like a chinese food dish. Which i'll talk about on our next segment but Definitely cookies i made Chocolate chip oatmeal cookies I have we have plenty of ice cream in the freezer like. Yeah yeah it's it's what's happening and we're going to talk more about. What did you all you. Don't election night I don't even remember at this point. Seems like a long time ago it does seem like a long time ago Oh we had tofu fried rice at probably much. Like what you ate. Yeah but Yeah it's it's strange times friends. So did scott ever find ice-cream. No we just everything is closed. No neighborhood and he didn't wanna go to multiple places so there was no ice cream. At least you had cake exactly so. Yeah well i thought it was kind of a timely interesting thing and i mean i will say i would like to give myself a gold star for never once even thinking about drinking alcohol through this meth. You know there was one point. Where thought if i was you know i maybe i can have a beer but then i i knew that if i want if i opened one it would not taste good to me like where would i have gotten one and then it was like too much trouble. I'm tired enough as it is. Yeah i definitely feel like it would only for me. It would be worse if i were drinking all I'm i am hitting the sparkling water kinda hard and the regular water. I just think water makes everything better. So that's i agree go to go to drink But check it out Let us know what you ate on election night. If you are eating for if you tried to plant something that you would feel Was comforting. Or i don't know so. Tell me about when you made on election night. It's homework he's it. Oh ruined when i did was he know we have the air fire. Now yeah Thank you denise local malfa listener who sent it to me. It's definitely been getting a workout and I did tofu in it. For another reason. For another recipe I cut into small cubes Just barely filmed it with a little oil and salt and pepper and it was like beautiful like beautiful restaurant eating fried tofu quality. You know and so. I had in my mind that i wanted to do something with that again. And i don't remember whether i talked about this last week because my brain is like not working on that well but dan and i recently got chinese takeout. Dilfer delivery i guess we picked it up but you know what i mean like american style leg. Not fancy not szechuan Because i was dying for broccoli and garlic sauce Dish from like a chinese american restaurant. Yeah i also have it. I can't even remember the name. It's like a place on east pass yang. That is just very typical a corner chinese takeout place. Yeah and So i got broccoli and garlic sauce from there and i did really enjoy it And so when the pizza went south. I was like i want something like that. But obviously i don't have all the ingredients. I need name broccoli. But i was thinking about the tofu that i had made and i was started searching around the internet for some kinda like chinese inspired Tofu stir fry Where you glazed your fried tofu and like some kind of like sweet sticky saw basically m found You know. I don't have a lot of the things that you might typically need for that. I don't have dark soya sauce. I don't have Schauch wine So i was obviously looking for like the most stripped-down down recipe. I could find. And i went to i. I ended up on the website the vegan blog i. It doesn't taste like chicken. Which i've said before on the show i've had mixed results with but it was a sweet and spicy. Tofu and it was very basic. It was just like water soy sauce. Sugar saratoga i think that's kind of it And you just boil it to to like make it on the news. Wisconsin cornstarch at the end. And i thought it looked really hit the spot. Sally i then being on air fryer spree. I air fried brussel sprouts like added that to the mix and put it my all time. Fave white rice and It really hit the spot for me. I'm so wasn't ansi no. Could it have used some scallions or like like could. It have been more complex absolutely but i really enjoyed it. You know and sometimes that's all that matters it doesn't have to be fancy and it doesn't have to have all the you know most authentic flourishes but it does have to satisfy and sounds like it did that for you And if you enjoy tofu like the air friars almost worth it just for the tokyo. I'd do a lot of the dry frying tofu which really often hits that spot for me. But it's not the same as it doesn't get super crisp but it does give you that little bit of texture on the outside which i love. Yeah i'm excited. So you know the book Is it chinese soul food or Came out a couple of years ago. Chinese family anyway. I'm totally scrambling name. There was a great chinese home cooking cookbooks. That came out a couple of years ago. And there's a vegetarian. She's working on a vegetarian one. That's coming out so cool. And i bet the i'll i'll find the proper name and the lincoln put it in the show notes but i feel like that would be probably a good one for you joy. I have been into this website lately. Called walks of life. You heard of it It's all it's a family that used to run a chinese restaurants and now they have this food food blog and It just says a lot of interesting stuff on it. I've been tracking it out a lot I'll put it in the show notes. They this is what happened. After i ate the broccoli and garlic sauce. I was like a half to be able to make this for myself. This is one of my things And i found they seem to have like the recipe that i want to try and so that's when i started looking at everything on their site but i do need a couple ingredients But you know. I'll share the the lincoln. It's a cool. It's a cool. Comprehensive website sounds great so Let me tell you a little bit about a recent discovery. I've had So because of the way grocery shopping works these days and i am still eating meat I have a lot of chicken in the freezer. Because that's something that. I default for dinner for the boys dinners for us fairly. You know maybe twice a week so fairly regularly and often the day away from me. And i didn't defrost it and then i think well should just get takeout. Make eggs for the boys and sometimes that happens. But i have discovered just a method for cooking frozen chicken breasts that is really working from frozen from frozen. It's really proving to be pretty successful for me and it's nothing special but it feels like it. Oh it's like it opens up some vistas which is really useful And so what i do is i pry them out of the package attended by them at costco so they come in like a three pack. It's a blister pack. See just kind of run enough Warm water over it to get it out of the package. And then i put it in sort of a deep baking dish And i put a little bit of water into the baking dish. And i just gently salt the chicken just to impart what flavor i can in this process and cover it with foil and put it i use. I didn't the toaster oven. Noth- big oven. Because i'm going to run it for a while and it feels like more energy efficient way to do it but if you're doing a lot more than i am you can do it in the oven. But basically i just bake it covered in foil at three hundred and seventy five degrees for like an hour and a half and when you're all done it is really tender it it doesn't it doesn't slice so much as it shreds but it's perfect for tacos perfect for feeding babies Mixing into soup and it's just like an easy. It's not fast. But it's the thing i can do at four o'clock to have dinner ready for the babies at five thirty that i don't have to think about the other nice thing is you're toast. Revenue set an amount of time that it bakes four. And then it's done so it shuts itself off. There's no kind of checking or making sure that it has It doesn't burn and it is just working for me right now. And i thought that other people might appreciate that method and i put them in rock solid totally frozen and that's why it takes a long but It's a nice sort of put it in. put it in. Stop thinking about it for an hour and a half. that's such a common stumbling block. Meant to take it out of the freezer and forgot. Yeah you know that anything that helps you work around. That i think is very helpful. Yeah and you're not surprised that it doesn't get overcooked though. It's the tight. Seal the foil and the little bit of water and so basically kinda mean it steaming poaching a little bit and so it is really tender and the thing too. Is that if you stop it too early. It's tough and so like you have to really go for that full-time amount of time until it shreds and then it sort of re moisturizes itself which is strange but it really works well 'cause i one time i took One piece out that was done but it wasn't shredded yet and it was a little bit rubbery. It also sounds like you're putting them in moist Applications like soup and or when. You put them in takayama sauce. I basically i just take the cooking. Juices are left. Put them in a pan To kind of just texture is a little bit and at some some taco seasoning. I always have a bag of pansies. taco seasoning around because it's really delicious shortcuts seasoning situation. Well i'm sure that that's gonna come in handy for some listeners. Yeah i hope so and you know it just. I got so tired of trying to defraud chicken in the microwave. it always cooks gets uneven. It gets robbery on the edges. It's terrible this is a much better tasting option. Yeah and also. I think the rea the what you see on the internet for defrosting chicken fast in that situation is to run continuously. Run water over it. Which you know would never fly in your household right. You don't wanna necessarily joey and your way you don't have to. Yeah thanks for sharing of course So we talked a little bit about her at election night stress snacking but let's talk about stress tax. One more generally how you doing. I have just been eating continually. Yeah like continue this however long this is going to take. This will be the longest amount of time. I have not been chewing on something conscious. When i've been awake like usually i eat frequently. I typically eat breakfast second breakfast lunch. Then let's call it. Hors d'oeuvres that. I have in the late afternoon before dinner Dinner and then most of the time so had desert selling i. I typically meeting a lot but now it's like just a continual stream of whatever dates peanuts peanut butter out of the container crackers with vegan cheese crackers with hamas crackers with nothing on them Popcorn you know it goes on and on ice cream Out of i've been known to take ice cream out of the container recently. Like you know what i'm saying about putting in a dish just Like most people eating he says. I roasted butternut squash butternut squash. I'm sorry my brain is really not here Delicado glass just cold out of the fridge. Yesterday i was like oh. Let's try kale chips in the air. Fryer that works. Great actually by the way But it just like. This has been snacking ten minutes while i'm awake for days. It sounds like you're snacking. Been pretty healthy though. I only have healthy stuff in my house. Pretty much yeah ben and jerry's ice cream not included. You know. I definitely been doing my fair share snacking. I made the mistake. I went to trader. Joe's on monday to do a pre election grocery stock up and i definitely bought some snacks that i probably shouldn't have so like i got there. They have these corn bread. Chris crackers that are deadly. They're so good. And i got those and i've eaten half the bag. I got their thick corn chips. That have the illo. Tae seasoning on them. Which are so good. And i want that. They're really good I don't know. I think i've mentioned this to you. But i have this aspiration of becoming like an outdoor biker. Uh-huh mainly so i can go to trader joe's. I used to take the boston trader. Joe's who knows when we're going to get on the bus again. I could walk there but it would take me an hour each way Biking is the obvious solution. You don't wanna drive. I drove to asean the other day. And i was like this stinks. Well at least with fritters parking ashim doesn't have perking but they're street. Parking parking was the least of my issues. When i was driving scene there was like trash trucks At the end of the day. I was like i could walk here faster. I'm so used to driving in the city. Although hardly drive anymore. I mean i drive like once every three weeks but while bikes were skirting around the whole time yeah. This is like a big ola for myself. I'm tired of letting fear stop me. I want a bike with a basket. I'm going to trader joe's and putting those corn snacks. That you just described right in my bike. And i'm going as many times as i want. That's right all right. I like this plan. Let's see what other thanks. If i've been snacking on i about a month ago went to costco and bought a big thing of mixed nuts and still working on those I've been no. That's another thing that i we have lots of around the house. I just like put them directly my mouth like raw. I have been sort of noodling around with a Chocolate apple butter cake recipe have made that a couple of times and luckily i I have some neighbors who have handed off big hunks of it too so that it's not around too much I have been eating a lot of apples with peanut butter. That's you know on the healthier side Scott burger shack for me. Scott's clearance halloween candy. So that's been problematic We definitely have Three pounds of candy corn in the apartment at the moment maybe two and a half pounds. We'll see i've also been eating handfuls of chocolate chips chocolate those little chocolate disks you used for baking and stuff just handfuls of those I put i got a tablespoon of a soup spoon of peanut butter that dan made it was fresh and warm. And i was like you know at this. Needs like like a dozen mini chips on it. I have not snapped like this. Since i was a child. It is a stressful time. So just so everyone knows. We're recording on friday morning friday november. Six the election has not been called yet. Hopefully by the time this airs next week there will be a presumptive Even if there are recounts going on but Yeah it's a rough period time right now not knowing Not you know at this point. We are can assume that biden is going to win but we can't jank within their no guarantees and there's no guarantees that once that announcement has been made. That there won't be violence I heard you know. Trump has said that he won't concede no matter. What the outcome and you. You don't have to concede in order to lose but it would make things a lot nicer Earlier this morning scott showed me the John mccain's concession speech from two thousand eight and it was so kind and so honorable and It just reminds you of what can happen in a system where there's grownups in charge. We're obviously not gonna see something like that happen now. Now if you need the comfort of a good concession speech don't count on you know this election go go watch that one from john mccain. It was pretty lovely. Yes so definitely. Comfort food is On an all time high right now tonight for dinner. I'm actually making something. That is my super comfort dish What and my family. It's known as ruth chicken and rice. I think i probably talked about this. When i was growing up We saw the unitarian church that i grew up in When i was a kid had all of the kid. Choirs met on monday nights for practice. And before the so like the kid vocal choirs. The hand bell choirs and before they met There was a family potluck. You know this is this. This would not be sustainable in today's sort of busy busy life but you know in late eighties and early nineties. It was a great thing and so once a week we had this potluck with a bunch of people from the church and it rotates. You'd always bring a dish but then one family would be in charge of the main dish. End ruth llewellyn dicks. Who was the director of religious education. The first thing change portland oregon in the late eighties early nineties. This was her dish. I think it had to be something from like campbell soup. It's race it's Cream of mushroom soup. It's a packet of lipton's onion soup. Mix in its chicken and so basically layer rice on the bottom. I was with brown rice to make it a little bit. More nutritious You whisk together the cream of mushroom soup with a onion soup mix. I do use the mushroom soup now. I don't use the onion soup. Mix just use dehydrated onions and garlic powder and And then you arrange the chicken pieces on top of the new poor this Liquid slurry on top and you cover it with foil and you bake it and you know. Basically the race absorbs all that flavor The chicken lends itself to the rice in the liquid And then you uncover it in the last like fifteen minutes to let the chicken crisp and it is creamy and savory end you know comforting from the rice and the chicken kind of pulled apart it is so good. It is their skin on the chicken. You are supposed to leave the skin on. I typically take off to make it a little less greasy because it can be a little bit much but it's delicious and then I was actually thinking about Sneaking chopped kale to it. Which i don't know how scott would feel but i figured like if i really finally chopped the kale and then added it to the liquid that it would just kind of flick everything with green and make almost. Be an herb. Exactly exactly But yeah it's it hits every comfort food like receptor in my brain. I bet i don't know what i'm making for dinner tonight a little. I think i scheduled back and cheese. But i don't know if i'm gonna still want it later. Maybe i will. who knows. I don't know what i'm gonna want one second to the next right now. I understand that i do. I really do. Yeah oh speaking of comfort three last night. We had a baked potatoes. Which and i want to talk more about those next week because it deserves a toll a whole segment to itself but oh a bagel baked potato with a bunch of vegetables on top and some cheese. It was again. It just soothed the frenzied neuro receptors in my brain and and miss you know full fiber and produce in good for you too so i don't think that every comfort snacky thing has to be Bad but it's all it's all good whatever you need to get through. This moment is okay. I interviewed a nutritionist yesterday for his story and she told me all of her clients canceled for the week. Nobody wants to be accountable. Well you know what i think. The whole world deserves a pass right now. we'll get back to eating healthily again. Soon I tell you about what i'm loving right now. Speaking of traders do so I i'm sure i've mentioned this on the show before but i am totally obsessed with the trader joe's corn salsa. It's a tomato sauce corn salsa. It's basically just you know a tangy. Sweet corn there. Some onions in there. There's some spice seeds. I think there's some coriander seeds and it's just it's not even real spicy but it's just so good We had burrito like a fajita salads the other night when he did on we put it on the baked potatoes last night I had been out of it for a while. Because it's been hard to trader joe's and so When i made a run earlier this week. I bought three jars and were almost three one. I should have bought four It's one of those things that i really just love. Having around my mom is a big fan of it too and she she puts big spoonfuls on her bowls of chili when she makes a pot of chili It's just one of those things that it's so delicious and Can really perk up something. That might be a little bit flat otherwise. Have you ever tried it. I don't think so. It's yet another reason to bike to trader joes. Well i think we got to wrap up here because you know what. I need to eat another cookie. It's forty minutes through a little short today but you guys will forgive us. We're all preoccupied with the election May everyone enjoy their snacks and be well this week. And that's it for today's local mouthful. Our thanks go out. Dan call for editing.

White republicans were more likely to be supportive of gun ownership overall except if the person with a gun is a black man. White democrats had a different reaction says rice researcher.

Isro postpones launch of geo imaging satellite Gisat-1 due to technical reasons
"Hello everybody and welcome back to the Space News Pod. A podcast about space science and tech. I'm your host will Walden and on this episode. We're going to be talking about the I. S R O launch of the G. I sat one now just today. I got the information that the G I sat. One mission will be postponed due to a technical issue now. We are supposed to be launching that on March Fifth Twenty. Twenty six o'clock a m eastern time has been postponed. Were not sure what the technical reason is. But I'll make sure to let you know the Youtube Channel or on here you can go to youtube dot com slash space news pod the checkout everything and I do a live host on there too. Many of these launches that are coming up. Make sure to tune in sub to that channel. And you'll be able to watch some live and hang out with other space nerds like myself so this is row. Isro launch was pretty cool satellite. It's a big big deal because they have a bunch of satellites Indian satellites which orbit the earth closer orbit than this is going to be a junior geosynchronous orbit and it's going to be further away with better imaging technology then what they had before so basically they're going to be able to image larger parts of the Earth to what they say is to plan for further development urban development and also development in the future so these things are important for humanity so when you can map these things The the earth such as the land of course because that's where we live on the land the water such as oceans rivers etc creeks etc. You can plan for further development of humanity. So if you've ever played. The Game Sim city. I pointed that out in the Youtube video to podcast today. If you've ever played the Game Sim city. It's similar to that. If you look down on a big portion of land you go okay. So what are we going to build here? What are we going to build here in the next twenty years? What's going to go over there in the next thirty years? What's going to go over there in kind of planned out if you have better imaging and you can also check out weather patterns. So that's another thing that these satellites are good for checking out whether if something crazy is happening with the weather. One of these headlights can go. Okay we have A. We have a picture of everything that's going on. We have a real time picture of every single spinning hurricane. That's in this region so nothing. The Indians GonNA give spinning hurricanes. But there's a possibility that they have bad weather of course like every place else. There's bad weather everywhere except you know someplace where there's not like when I was living in San Diego. No bad weather seventy five degrees sunny every day with no clouds who does that whereas that place. It basically shouldn't exist but it does. It's called San Diego and I love that place so let's get back on track here the ISRO is doing really great things in they postpone this launch. And we're not sure when is gonNA launch again so what I was saying before is the Youtube Channel. It's very important to go to the YouTube Channel YouTube dot com slash base news pod. I post all of the upcoming live streams on there on our homepage so check that out in you too can be part of the nerd system that is the space cadets of the space news pod Youtube Channel Okay so the Geo imaging satellite the GI. Sav One will help real time imaging of the Earth from its thirty six thousand kilometer home in orbit There's like I was saying before. Mapping how places where people can live agriculture forestry mineralogy mineral law mineralogy disaster warning etc. It does a lot of stuff this is directly from the ISRO and it was is postponed. So we'll figure it out when the happens but it's GONNA be coming up probably in the next within the next month so hopefully they can figure this thing out as soon as possible now. A recently had a new sponsor to the show.

chiliPAD Sleep System Review
"Do you sleep hot or cold. Do you wake up in a sweat or shivering. Utah turned because your body just can't find the right temperature is so stay tab because I'm reviewing doing chilly pad. He's tweet hands on tech is brought to you by absence eco-tank printers this holiday season kiss expensive cartridges. GOODBYE CHECKOUT EPSON DOT COM slash eco-tank Leo to learn more follow Robert Ballots here the Digital Jesuit. And I'm a fan of sleep tech according to totally dependable poll. I once on read it. The average person cumulatively spends more than sixty five years in bed over a lifetime so it makes sense to try to maximize the comfort of those six and a half decades or probably more accurately about eight hours a day. That's why I was excited when cry. Who sent me one of their Chili? Pets I've been eyeing the sleep Texans. Es Twenty eighteen because it claim claim to address my biggest problem while sleeping. I hate sleeping hot. The idea is relatively simple. Created advice second heat or cool water then circulate that water through a mattress pad to heat or cool. You're sleeping area to your desired comfort temperature. It's definitely a simple idea but complicated to do properly the way that the chilly pad does it is a two part system comprised of the Cube Control Unit and the hydroponic pat starting at six hundred dollars. The Cube measures about nine point five five inches long ten point five inches wide and seven point five inches high with an in two year. Three hundred and ninety milliliter water reservoir it uses a reversible heat pump up to heat or cool that water between fifty five and one hundred and ten degrees Fahrenheit. Then it circulates it through the hydraulic pad. It comes with a remote control so that the cube doesn't have to be immediately accessible after installation and it's designed to automatically protect itself by shutting off. Should the reservoir fall below US safe operating level the the hydraulic pad comes in sizes from twin. All the way up to California king and it uses several meters of three point two millimeter silicone tubing integrated into the pad to flow the water water through the entire surface. It has an eight foot tail for connecting the hydraulic pad to the cube. And the PAT is machine. Washable and uses Paulie fill so that you can place your fitted sheet directly over the pad using the chilly pad starts by stripping your bed so that you can lay the pad on the mattress. There's an elastic band attached to the pad that secures it to the mattress mattress. So that it doesn't slide out of position you can position the tail at the head or the foot of your bad depending on where you want a house. Cube Control Unit now speaking of the Cube. You'll need a flat surface on which to place it. The spot needs to have two feet of on interrupted airflow on all sides as the cubes going to need that airflow to properly operate the heat. Pump once you've got a location for the cube connected to the tale from the hydroponic pad then plugged the cube into a power outlet unscrew the CAP to the Cubes Water Reservoir which should always be facing upwards boards and fill it with distilled water distilled is optional in the manual for me any water circulation of I should avoid regular or softened water because that will cause mineral build up over time. This is tech that we want to be using for years if not decades. So let's treat it right after failing the cube turn it on and set the temp up to seventy five degrees. Fahrenheit as water circulates through the tubes in the hydraulic pad the water level in the reservoir will drop. Go ahead and refill it until it stabilizes uses than cap the tank while the bad is still uncovered. Go ahead and make sure that it reaches your desired temperature testing both the heating and cooling functions. If if everything checks out you can reduce your bed minus your old pad and you've just finished installation now. That's how the tech works but the question is how does it feel in in a word heavenly now. I've never had an experience where the bed kept me at my perfect sleeping temperature and it is so much better than what I've done in the past I I love sleeping cold. I keep my windows open in the winter I blow fans at myself in the summer but that always causes discomfort because no matter how cool I make my room. I'm still building building up my mattress and that causes me. Toss and turn with the chilly pad and once. I had a few nights to dial it in. I was able to sleep all through the night waking up in the same position that I was in when I went to bed not only that but cooling jess the bed is far more energy efficient than trying to cool the entire room or the entire house. This is one of those sleep technologies that will spoil you for regular mattresses because it is just so much more comfortable but yet because the modular design of the chilly pad allows you to multi zone your bed that means that if you share it with a partner they can set their side of the bed at a different temperature than your side. You can have your fifty five degree Igloo. While they enjoy sleeping a warm one hundred and ten degree beach now it should be noted that while the heat or cool the water between fifty five and one hundred and ten degrees Fahrenheit Erin. Hi that's not necessarily going to be the temperature of the pad itself those Pesky laws of thermodynamics that the temperature of the room the mattress your body and the thermal conductivity of your betting will all affect the temperature that you feel for me setting the cube to sixty met that my bed stayed at about seventy two degrees which was perfect. But but that's just me. I was really impressed by the chilly pad. But that's not to say that it's for everybody if you don't currently have heat related sleeping issues than you might not fully appreciate the chilly pad. Also if you're an extra light sleeper the pump and fan could potentially wake you barring that this is a fantastic piece of tech that I recommend commend for anybody who thinks that they can get a better night's sleep with better heat management father Robert ballots hair the digital jesuit.

Still Making Decisions In The Seams E462
"Four six to listen to goldbach topcoat and good social networks. Let me take you back to the nineteen eighties when he used to carry him ultra h._d. One hundreds in my hand and a technical radio in the zipped pocket of of my flight suit. I was a flight safety would walk around flight lines and during the month of august it was pretty testy where i worked because the heat was is high the days were long and the hazards were great her mainly because with heat and the pressure to fly long to catch up to get ahead of bad flying weather people would often go up three times a day flying supersonic jets and they'd be at the edge of the decision making making capabilities lots time pilot error was number. One reason that planes crashing people would die so we would look between the seams teams of things for issues before they resulted in bigger problems. You can often spotted indicator tip of an iceberg and say wait a minute if we zero in and solve solved little chunk of problem. There won't be a bigger problem downstream. It was part of a rural thumb that some people use around one hundred things things started on ten things cold all the way down to one thing so you look at stuff with an idea of trying to figure out what sitting in the seam and on what can you work on that would boost productivity of your own brand or your own flying squadron or would increase the safety of flight ops that was my everything and i'm led to this thought because of one and about a thousand views in my flicker extremist it's the radio that i used to have and to memory that radio and a colonel colonel in the air force and had some advice he gave me and three vice happens to be similar to marry him bulat. He's advice. She shares on medium in an article that she wrote on the fifth of august so marion rian. Marianne says that she's marbot belmar bill. Bill maher thinks she is on medium. She said <hes> people phone like us. Make our money in the seams of things she actually heard that spoken from the senior official at the national security agency. The context was that she she marian was in a job with state department with the n._s._a. And lots of important people impressive titles and things about computer security and the woman who made the comment was redirecting the conversation after a colleague had said something wrong at insulting in response to a question so she was trying to defuse it and her point was that security and reliability are often the seam in the seams between organizational silence. Those seams are places where nobody's sure who owns what who's responsible for what and as a result because they're kind of hiding in those seems the monitoring's very low and the upgrade cycle is probably not even considered the seams are where things get lost sometimes for years so if like in the case of the right or the medium article your job was security or availability then he would look in the seems to find stuff as a big payoff similar to what i started doing when i was on the flight light line looking for stuff at the top decide that would fall between the gaps of the flight ops guys and the maintenance guys and logisticians institions and the schedulers and commanders and normally when you're trained for flight safety. You're looking at stuff that could go wrong and you really conservative and you're not actually the friend of people that are pushing the pointed. Eh shove the envelope. You wanna go fast and do it often. That's the flight right up. Skies wants to do flight safety people. You're looking at all the things that could go wrong from the point of view of the four thirty in the morning briefing to the five o'clock in the afternoon. Wrap up and everything in between so so you know. Hundreds of things could go wrong on my case at the one hundred ten to one route. One hundred things could go wrong easily. You can spot that on a clipboard is focusing on ten of the ones that are most likely to go wrong on that day and then zoom the one critical failure which you'd focus on which is what i did. I focused on birds because during during the month of august migratory patterns are pretty predictable in oklahoma birds fly up a wash wash dry riverbed and they do it exactly exactly at a certain time of day when the heat was good enough to kind of 'cause he's little lifting currents and orbit at certain points because of small pockets of water or food and we knew that we knew the birds and the hit aircraft that are going for miles an hour create problems birds die expensive planes crash or you can have a million dollar damage just with one bird wing flying into an engine plane. That's going very fast so do we zeroed in on migratory patterns of birds in august put the dots that we had on a map from stuff that i knew from migratory pattern analysis as well as a light plane cessna one seventy two that i flew and presented the data to a wing commander and told him look according to the numbers of birds and the numbers of flights that are going over this particular train feature the wash on your oakland oklahoma. My analysis predicted that there'd be a seventy five percent percent chance of a bird strike between the hours of three thirty and four forty five on the days of the week days of the month that the temperature would be above seventy degrees. We knew that this is we all the data that seventy five percent thing was made up through some regression analysis that we did studying studying <hes> the chance of encountering bird against that particular flight profile against that particular weather profile and an apple two g._s. We were the first office and the air training command to use apple computers to predict some statistical modeling the tablet g._s. Look seventy five percent probability is going the happen and then over the course of an entire summer. There'd be a ninety percent chance of the event what had happened being being at least a one million dollar damage claim seventy five percent chance going to happen three to four. It's going to happen and then when it does happen. It's going to cost at least a million dollars so the wing commander was in a position where we presented him the information lying in the seams of his flight profiles and he had to make a decision people like him wing commander makes his money is grade based on information. He takes away an axe on. I'm from the scheme of things around him. His job fly safe flight hard meet the timeline graduate students his decision. He looked at us and said you guys back me up because as me plus two officers we said yeah sure the data's data's sat that that data sets been verified by the people in san antonio texas texas who were one director level higher than where we were so we walked them through the data set they agree with our analysis and he's simply made a phone call to as the officer and director of operations and told the director of operations. We're gonna stand down little flights on any day when i are on for six had had a surface temperature of seventy five degrees higher now impact was directly measurable because month of august one thousand nine hundred eighty four the wing wing fell behind by fifteen percent the number of hours. They're meant to fly to graduate students. They made up the time required in the months of september without a problem but for a three week period the wing commander is taking a lot of grief and being looked at by his contemporaries at six hundred flying units around the united states the end of it all no accents since the loss of aircraft based on bird strikes in other places the united states two or three aircraft were damaged with at least a million dollar damage each and and three years later the colonel who made the decision later became a one star general and less than knew. He was a three star general before he retired. He made his decisions on the sima the things it all worked out well. How about you. Do you have a line of thought we look for something at the top and kind of bring down that thing at the top one hundred things top you call it down to ten or twelve things that have relevance and you'd say one thing i'm gonna take action on if you do your part of that one hundred it to want ten to one rule creative writers use this brainstorm as this and i need to use it more of my friends because in a staff meeting sometimes when you brainstorm install you get those things that are discussed and people need to know you should actually throw stupid stuff onto the table because that's stupid stuff opens up wider range of thought which allows the people who have been invited into the decision making apparatus to decide. How can you reduce what you're looking at two things that are actionable and the nutcase the actual thing the one thing the ten or twelve people decide upon is acted upon and changes made all right. I'm off to make more money and make better decisions into the scheme of things hope. You are to catch up with what i'm doing. I am top golden. I'm good social. Networks inside is where right stuff on a blog. Thanks for listening the comments you can already just find that handle topcoat and i'll talk back in the seam of things by for now.
"Breakfast guys let's go. I'm leaving for mcdonald's and five seconds. The breakfast emptied meal. It's only at mcdonald's where there's a meal for every morning and nothing says morning like a classic sausage mcmuffin with egg right. Now get this all time favorite for just two bucks on the one. Two three dollar menu price and participation may vary cannot be combined with any other offer combo meal vodka mojo in the morning show so spike real quick comment again that you just made the to shannon megan mike and ellen just a second ago. I can't when without a list without a grocery list. I i really messed up. Because i got to the grocery store yesterday realize that in have my list and i should have just turned around because i didn't know too to labor when i walked in that grocery store i bought everything in sight because then what i did. I started going up and down each aisle to decide. It'll come back to me. When i walked down the remember what i needed for breakfast food. Well i bought so much stupid junk food. I bought stupid stupid stuff and like my whole cart was full. And then i got home and realize i didn't even get one of the two things i went for the kroger. Or wherever you. Who did you get the kaleidoscope. Oreos the unicorn don't have so. That was my ansari. That was not my last time. I was there but did you in the store for over two hours really. I bought so much stuff i was like. Well let me. I'm trying to like cook more and not eat out as much in meal. Prep and stuff. Because we've been here some long days. So i don't want to door dash to to work and get a lot of junk food so i'm like i'm going to make stuff i bought. When you walk down you could always grand ideas of things you're gonna make. I bought all the ingredients for irish stew. And i'm like i'm gonna. I'm gonna make some irish stew. It's seventy five degrees today. I'm not gonna make irish stew. Why did i buy the stuff that you you make irish stew and you makin. Try and renew my friends and we're and we're going back indoors and i'm like i'm going to start cooking more. I'm going to start. You know getting back to my roots and eat healthier because in irish do in pumpkin soup belly help opposite own. Irish stew is so fattening. A bad for he's got potatoes and yeah it's not deep fry healthy but to me. I mean that's exactly exactly. Wow i go without a list. I'm totally not prepared to make all the healthy things like on the very rare occasion that i actually write down stuff. I need for a recipe. If i just go in without that. Then that's when. I buy like the pretty couples and all just the easy quick stuff that i can. Or that's what i did too because i didn't have the list like the list had legit things i needed on their coffee. Creamer vegetables couple of other things. Like when i wanted to make pumpkin soup. That's got like three pints of cream in it. It might be the most unhealthy thing in the world. But i'm thinking like ooh pumpkin. That's gourd that might be a vegetable. Isn't that a the thing that you did by going to the store and buying all that stuff isn't that a guy thing don't most don't most people That are in relationships. Relate to the fact that they can't send their guy to your probab- without a list or if a woman is ordering ahead usually does it's whoever it falls on as the duty to do the grocery shopping since i'm not usually the primary grocery shopper. It's dangerous for me to go in there. And especially after work. When i'm hungry or in this case i didn't have a damn list because i was like well. I don't want to turn around. I'll just get the two things. I came for and then i was like what were the two things. Well i'll just walk in there and it didn't come back to me. I have to tell you that That is to me. Normal guy thing to do and i think that Lady should call out there guys and tell us what they were to the store to go get and what they back with. Those could be kind of funny. Oh my god. I was looking at sheet cake. I'm like oh my god like maybe it's not anybody's birthday but i can still. You don't need a birthday cake. Kroger has been putting more and more cakes door. And it's really starting to piss. Any of them are little. So they're listening to right. Control cannot handle it. It's a mini cake. But it's like you can get four slices out of you. Guys have bought a cake like a birthday cake in. It wasn't anybody's birthday. You bought it. Just eat yourself cake or cupcakes. I have so back in the day before. I knew gluten but i i like just the frosting but i never knew that people would actually go and just by the knicks favorite donut. Is boston cream. Doughnut so then. I walked into kroger and they had little mini boston cream cakes. And when i say mini it's not one person it's like four six hundred maybe when the bachelorette song shannon can eat. The whole thing is by the way i used to say. That's a sign of being a fat guy if you could if you go to the store and you buy you know something that does like if you buy at the store the uc you know the tv dinners and things like that. But if you buy the family size portion of lasagna and you cook it for yourself and eat it all yourself. That cake does not say it's family size cake coming from you right now but i listen. No because i've done it. And i'm gonna tell you this but i've never done the cake thing. 'cause i and i've been miserable with the ten of frigging str- stover's family size lasagna. And i'm on my last piece going. Oh my god. I just ate the entire stover's family size have you. Yes leave that one piece. It makes it all the while. I always do that.

Who is the person somebody that he worked with. But yeah oh so so. The guy had nowhere to go on thanksgiving so he brought them in. So you have to have friends sit on that turkey to defrost d.

Wait did they not have moose tracks and he was trying to make up for it now. He just thought it would be a better option. But we've been together for five years. And i don't like ice cream so he should know that. And by the way they don't ever have moose tracks ice cream.

What's Special About San Franciscos Sourdough?
"From cutie. Hey everybody libyan price here and you're listening to bay curious. On this holiday week. I will be spending a lot more time in the kitchen than usual making all of our holiday favorites sweet potato casserole roasted brussels sprouts. Maybe chocolate become pie. If there's time we're scaling back on thanksgiving gathering this year but the menu is staying the same so we'll be eating leftovers for weeks. If not months in honor of all the other home cooks out there slogging away in the kitchen today. I wanna play you. One of my favorite early bay curious episodes it. I ran in two thousand seventeen and take some one of the most iconic local foods. We'll get to it right after this support for bay curious comes from sierra nevada brewing company family owned operated and argued over since one thousand nine hundred eighty proud supporter of independent thought whether that's online over the air or in a bottle more at sierra nevada dot com this week with puerto julia scott and we're having a locally known favorite for lunch sour dough bread. You know if bagels are in new york thing. San francisco definitely has sourdot. And of course we're at one of the meccas of sour dough in the city both bakery in fisherman's wharf probably known as convinced more people that are sour dough is unique than booting and i gotta say i do love the way that they make their bread. It's really tangy You know i always heard. There's something in the water or the air here. That makes our sourdot special. Well one of our listeners. Peter kevin yaro who happened to actually work at. He's hearing that for years to. Here's peter well. It seems unquestioned. That san francisco sour dough is the best. And i believe that to be true but i realized that i didn't understand why that was true and that got him wondering why is it that san francisco sour dough is considered so unique. What do you think julia. Well i looked into it and it turns out that before you can understand what makes our bread tastes the way it does. You need to understand where it all begins. My first stop for the story was the fermentation room at semi freddie's bakery. The sir fermentation room where we keep her starters. The inner sanctum of the bakery. I'm in a very cold. Stainless steel vault at semi fridays bakery. Alameda with two men who spend all day making bread happen co owner. Mike rose and john tread gold the head baker were all wearing little hairnets around us. Three hundred yellow buckets brim with slow bubbling beige goop future. Sourdot can you hear it tugri. It will be fed later today. Gets fed wants today. People parts flour and water. That's mike rose before sour dough gets baked. It has to be grown from flour and water borne as a primordial glop named starter. You can see bubbles rising to the surface so this one sounds like very fresh starter. John tread gould hands me a plastic spoon and points me to a bucket. So you just want a tiny baby. Spoonful starter right now. Looking really healthy. What i mean by that is it's looking alive. Oh my goodness. It's like licking yogurt. It makes you salivate. Makes you excited to eat more over the next eighteen hours these sour dough starter will take a trip through a mixer portion out by bread guillotine and then baked in four hundred and fifty degree oven. These buckets of starter will become ninety. Five hundred loaves of sourdot all bound for local stores and restaurants but no two loaves tastes exactly alike and that's because the starter is alive with millions of yeast and bacteria. the yeast makes the bread rise and the bacteria create the asset. That make the bread sour. If you give them enough time and enough food meaning more flour and water fermentation happens on its own. We try to control it by temperature and time and our hands. It's never fully totally under control because we're dealing with wild organisms. I love it. I love it just flour and water and time so you're saying i could make my own starter. Go go for it. i would say. Take a pound of flour and a pint of warm water Keep it at around. Seventy five degrees stirred up. Okay this is julia it stay one of the great sour dough starter experiment. I'm home in oakland in my kitchen. And i'm about to mix my flower water for the first time here. So i wanted to make my own starter to see if i could some wild yeast local bacteria. I i added Flower that's one cup. Put my one cup of flour here into my empty tupperware kim. I had night. Add this water to the flower. It's going to activate the bacteria in the flower here. We go let me stir this thing. Okay i'm gonna put you to bed now. Grow little starter. Grow voice nagged at me though anyone can make sourdot but would mind be authentic if it wasn't born in san francisco not according to bodine. They're museum exhibit at. Fisherman's warf says bodine. Bread owes its special flavor to a strain of bacteria that thrives only in san francisco's climate. Scientists identified it here in the nineteen seventies so they named lactobacillus and franciscus. Say that ten times fast. It's a great story too bad. it's not quite true. It's something that everyone things. Unique to san francisco in that is not true at all. That's been wolf. Microbiologist at tufts university and passionate home baker who studies fermentation including the microbes. That makes sourdot sourdot. There is no evidence to say that there are unique microbes. The san francisco bay area. Scientists did identify lactobacillus. San francisco is here but recent studies have found it in seventy five percent of sourdough cultures tested worldwide. So i don't think there's any evidence to say that the microbes in san francisco are unique yet. That yet is important. Wolf's lab is part of a major study to test the dna of sour dough starters across america and understand their evolutionary biology. The sour dough project will look at the entire microbial life of sourdot. not just. it's bacterial makeup right now. Thousands of acres are sending in their sour dough. Starters which means scientists may yet discover things special about san francisco sourdot. There's never been a large scale study in home. Kitchens to really identify the sources of bacteria at home. When i told him i was growing my own sourdot he told me he would analyze it. It's day three and my sour dough could drew pulled in size overnight. It almost spilled out of the tupperware even keeping it in also. It smells like vomit so there has to be some grown in there. It wasn't long before the sour donated to be fed. Every eight hours. I had to raise home after work and feed it. It's day nine of the great sourdough experiment and after several days of collapsing and then doing nothing at all my sour dough starter started to rise again and now it has beautiful air pockets for me. The bottom top decides. But what about semi freddie's. Don't they think there's something unique about san francisco sourdot. John threadgold says that's marketing sales. The city's one of the things the city's known for the bridge. The bay the salad. Oh but just in case. I brought my starter outside. Sometimes who knows maybe it would absorb something special in the air. Drifting over the bay from san francisco here you go a little guy. I hope you catch some good yeast and bacteria before long. I was ready to send some to ben wolf's lab to be used as a data point in the sour dough project and putting this in triple baggies so it doesn't leak overnight this to dr wolf. This is by far the weirdest thing. I have ever sent anyone in the mail but the most important question was how it taste. I baked too little loaves and brought them into the qwerty. Newsroom to get some brutally honest feedback from fellow reporters. Peter kevin gyro the question asker. Who started this whole thing. Came to Okay guys this is the big. Reveal my very sad to lobes of sourdot. Can we go own quite our list weeks. We cut them open. I mean if you can there as hard as rocks this is like maybe two pounds. Maybe three odd. This is the first taste just breath. Good it's just a little bit denser than what you would be typically posted this up a little butter. It'd be really. I think it's really nice. I mean i feel like the flavor is actually kind of spot on for the most part of peter that's high praise coming from somebody who's who says sour dough is favor kind of bread. Thank you. you're welcome so who wants the other loaf. Don't all speak at once so a few weeks later. I got my result back from the tufts lab and that bacteria once believed to make our bread so special lactobacillus san francisco. Yeah my bread. Didn't have any. Thanks to julia. Scott who that story and peter calvin gyro for the question one little update me. Freddie's is producing a bit less bread than usual right now because of covid nineteen but mike rose who you heard from in that story is excited for you to try making some yourself and got all the information that you need now that you've listened to the story or you could always buy premade starter. Lots of local bakeries are selling them these days remember. This show doesn't work without you so head over to bay curious dot org and send us that question that you've been wondering about bay curious as made in san francisco at member supported acuity. I'm olivia on price.
To teach Alexa to bake muffins, you have to break a few eggs
"A quick note here we'll be saying the wake word for Amazon Smart Speaker a lot in this episode so you might want to press its mute button okay on with the show so there's the secret apartment on the thirtieth floor of Amazon's Day one building in Seattle we've wanted to get inside for months I finally did hello welcome to the day one home that I'm happy you're here I ev jealous you're there you should be this place was like stepping into Tomorrowland it represents the company's vision for what a smart home could be a quick definition here a smart home is one on where appliances and door locks and lights and even window blinds have electronics inside that let them be controlled remotely over a network you control them using a phone phone or smart speaker or something that hasn't been invented yet Amazon uses this space to work through the kinks with product manufacturers it's part lab part showroom there's a shower that Alexa can start for you so the water warms up before you get in Alexa turn on the shower there's a mirror with Alexa inside just a second mirror route with Alexa inside how does that Word Alexa how do I look today yes she says I'm sure you look great those what's inside that counts there's an Espresso Machine Alexa tell my coffee machine to prepare an espresso sure be he cool and you can call it movies on the Home Theater System with just Your Voice Alexa skip this new there's a connected drier and lamps and last but certainly not least there's a torquing teddy bear holy mother of God what yeah it shakes its behind to the the music that you request from Alexa we recorded it you can hear its little plastic but squeaking back and forth into my reaction exactly this does not sound like a child's toy either it's definitely pg thirteen but they keep it around because it starts a lot of conversations but you know putting the bear era aside I definitely had some questions no because hanging out in this apartment you cannot escape the realization that the future is here Alexa the play ripples on evaporated lake by Raymond Scott Ripple sounded evaporating Lake Bahrain Scott and the evolution control committee starting now but that future is not as perfect as we want it to be not everything works and sometimes it feels like smart home products just give companies and excuse to Jack up prices without making them any better but what what if the path to a more functional smart home means giving Alexa more power to make assumptions and judgments about us in our behavior in this episode we look at what that means and how inviting Alexa into our homes can shape our lives and even our personal relationships Amazon agreed agreed to give me a tour of its smart apartment but I didn't want just a simple tour where show me all the bells and whistles in perfect working order I wanted to test it to push it to the limit I'm Joshua mcnichols I'm Caroline Adolf from K. U. O. W. in Seattle this is primed coming up next we're gonNA break a few eggs if you insist so when you see coverage of Amazon smart home technology on the news everything works flawlessly those smart devices this can run your lights blinds temperature all entertainment given the door lock and doorbell we got a sneak peek at one of these home seeing Amazon's hand in things from the very first touch but nothing is ever as smooth as it looks in those new spots I wanted to test Amazon's model smart home with a household tasks ask that I thought might confound Alexa so I came to the lab with a big bag of groceries and some cooking supplies and dream to bake a batch of blueberry muffins how is baking blueberry muffins pushing it to the limit because if there's one thing I have learned about Alexa it's in her current current form she's not good at multitasking and baking is all about multitasking. So how did your experiment work Well let me start with the stuff that worked well like asking for recipes on the screen of an echo show okay for blueberry muffing here's a few recipes and lots more I want to try this one nine dot com new very office fresh sour cream and blueberry muffins easy recipe here we go with recipes on the screen so you don't have to touch a cookbook while your hands are covered with Muffin batter and Alexa turns the page for you Alexa Nexta stirring eggs until well-mixed I did have some fun teasing Alexa about the things she can't do Alexa helped me get this eggshell out of the batter I'm not sure cheap shot yeah you're right right and there are lots of times when you're cooking when it's great not to have to push buttons like when you're mixing batter and you need to preheat the Oven Alexa exa tell June to preheat to three hundred seventy five degrees okay all right okay let's see next in June June is the brand of oven talking to Alexa is like playing a game of telephone you're not talking to the devices themselves you're telling Alexa to talk to the device and sometimes it's like they don't speak the same language when that really drove me up the wall was the voice controlled rolled Delta Faucet but a faucet so simple just does water caroline I never noticed how often I need water when I'm cooking then during this experience I mean maybe you need to moisten a rag or wash off your fingers and you don't think about it when you're cooking you just flip on the water and then you flip it off again and you're done right but Alexa just didn't get it turned on the thing Alex until to turn on the sake I'm sorry I didn't find advice patios think your devices named Faucet till Faucet to turn on the water you gotta get down the right word right Alexa tell the faucet to turn off the water announcing to the Selva Delta turn off the water I had to negotiate with Alexa for every drop of water she's like contrarian teenager like Oh did you mean this faucet so can you buy this faucet now or is it still in the testing stage I mean Amazon does use his places a lab to test stuff right yeah well you can buy this faucet alright it costs over five hundred dollars which is twice as much as a similar faucet without Alexa that particular product felt very half baked and a lot of smart homes stuff does actually as the muffins were baking I wrote down some questions for Amazon we invited Amazonean down to the lab to discuss them with us his name's Nathan Smith and he's the director director of smart home core components at Amazon it's nice to meet you before I got into my complaints I started with an easy question how did Amazon get into this whole smart homes thing and he told me it began with a hacker thon of course it did let me set the scene for you it's twenty fifteen and the echo has just launched you could play music on an echo or asked to put things in your Amazon shopping cart but smart homes weren't really in the picture yet that territory was owned by phone own manufacturers like Apple Phillips the Light Bulb Company had a system where you could remotely Control Smart Light Bulbs using your phone but you know it's not necessarily easier to like get your phone out of your pocket unlocked the phone you know navigate to the individual APP open it up find the screen for the light you on turn on then you turn it on all through of lab at certain points just easier to get up right enzo walk over the switch and hit it yes and avoid asking yourself all those questions that he just managed ask himself about doing a simple thing here's the thing though Phillips had designed their system to encourage experimentation it it had what's called an open API which means that anybody who could code could build an application that could remotely change the state of a light bulb you know whether it's on or off customers were already trying to knit together smart light bulbs in the Echo in their own homes they were saying Alexa add add turn on the lights to my shopping list and that triggered another skill which would then tell the lightbulb skill to turn on the lights it was kind of a Rube Goldberg bar type of thing you know all daisy chained together the hacker thon took that urge to connect Alexa and light bulbs and turned it into what was arguably I believe the first smart home Alexis skill and it helped Amazon conclude that Alexa had the key thing that could finally unlock the true potential intial of smart home devices voice control voice really did was was for the first time it made controlling these devices more more natural you know faster more reliable than you know having to go and turn on things manually and and I think that that was a that's a watershed moment because you get this sort of very futuristic experience that's also also very simple and convenient I get it it's easier to flip a switch than to control my bedroom lights from my phone but it's even easier to ask Alexa for to do it right and that discovery led to the creation of whole new divisions at Amazon but I wanted to know if the momentum of these early he's smart home successes has made Amazon blind to places where smart home technology does not work like the tankers Delta Faucet it Smith told me they believe in the smart home but they recognize it's still buggy they're working on it we do think that having answer answer pre experience to turn on the Faucet is useful right like if you have dirty hands a kneading dough or something like that and then I can't you know hit the thing like everyone's tried to sorta elbow the Faucet to get it into the right state you know there are places where we can make things simpler and we're just gonNA keep refining until we make it truly elite in a simple inconvenient for customers so this is the first lesson I learned smart homes at Amazon is a half baked idea when a faucet company rolls out an Alexa enabled faucet it's not done being designed you know it's still very much day one for smart home and we're kind of figuring out the experiences I mean just thinking about the semantics of using something like a thermostat or using something like a microwave from voice there's not a lot of precedent for that developers continually update skills that control smart home devices okay wait though you're telling me that if I'm buying a Delta Faucet with Alexa I'm paying a premium basically be a Beta tester well yeah yeah but what's the big deal I mean that kind of thing is already happening with cell phones they're never complete until a company stops updating the software and at that point their garbage yet but Joshua with a faucet breakfast lunch and dinner are at stake not this is just not a faucet I wanNA have but I do see what you're saying and I suppose Amazon wouldn't say it's half baked they call it a continuous process of innovation and refinement that's true and if you want to improve something you know if you wanna refined something you have to start by acknowledging the system's shortcomings and there are so many just going back to the sink example I wish I could just told Alexa to turn on the water like why do I need to know the the name of the manufacturer of the Faucet in order for that to happen or like with a with a convection oven I could just say turn on the toaster oven or you know two three seventy five instead of having to know that it was made by June right yeah absolutely and you know increasingly doubts what were that's or aiming at Smith says they're working on that too and that Amazon wants Alexa to respond more naturally more like a human if if you ask a CO worker to co worker hey let's go get a sandwich they wouldn't say like oh I don't know what sandwich you mean they'd say like you know they might have the context context no like oh you always go to Freddie's they'd just be like yeah let's go to Freddie's or day would be like Oh you know which place do you WanNa go to you know do you WanNa go downtown do you want to eat around the office so they've launched something called did you mean so if Alexa is unclear about what light you wanted to turn on Jill ask did you mean the kitchen light or the hood light but sometimes I'm pressed for time and I don't want to have to answer a bunch of basic questions I just want my into make it happen and so they're giving Alexa the ability to make judgments so that even if she doesn't fully understand you she can guess well well you know if we're gonNA cook something it's probably going to be in the oven so I can assume that you know Alexa and assume that the garbled requests that you made while reading a recipe was to preheat the oven you know not to preheat the shower right they want Alexa to be a bit less of a dumb dumb but let's be really clear what you're telling me is that they are teaching Alexa to make judgments about what I say and then make decisions Asians for me about what it thinks I'm thinking and that is starting to give this device some power in the household yeah and they're also training Alexa To Watch your behavior and to let you know if something seems out of place like to call out to you if you forget to lock the door one night on your way to bed Amazon calls that ability hunches see part of the problem with Alexa now is that she requires precise instructions a lot of these changes that we're talking about with Alexa Act on vague or incomplete instructions if she's able to convince herself through context and pattern recognition of your intent. Well I can see how this is useful however I have to say I've had a terrible experience with what must have been hunches hunches because at one in the morning last week I asked Alexa turn off the air purifier but Alexa actually turned on the bedroom light one o'clock in the morning Joshua it was likely decided well sounds like she wants me to throw a switch I guess I'll throw this one so now my husband and I were both wide awake and I was staring at the lamp shade thinking who gave you agency now I blame this hunches thing down Alexa is still a work in progress but that doesn't stop people from selling the hell out of it that's coming up next there's this tiny town called black diamond it's about an hour south of Seattle Oh yeah I've seen it it was a coal mining town and it was off the beaten in track until a couple of years ago when developers swooped in huge battle ensued right yeah and now it's going to be home to one of Washington state's biggest developments developments hundreds of people live there already and it's just getting started Amazon has a presence here too do you is one of these Amazon yes so has the sign in front of it that says Amazon Experience Center that's the one that we're GonNa tour yeah yeah and I see new homes are still still being built right now absolutely there's going to be about forty eight hundred homes actually out here wait Amazon's building forty eight hundred Holmes well no developers are building the homes and one of those developers Lanar has partnered with Amazon to try to distinguish themselves goes from their competition here they're building smart homes using Amazon technology did they include those faucets that are a work in progress they they did not include the faucets but you know I wondered what's it really like to live with this stuff I spent a couple of hours in a test lab but people who by these homes are dealing with Alexa twenty four seven so I went knocking on doors to see how neighbors feel about actually living with this technology one family the Ferguson's invited me into their home they say they didn't go looking for an Amazon smart home it actually wasn't a factor turn it all we just ended up liking the home and the builder and the neighborhood so it was just kind of a plus that was added on when we didn't know what to expect that's Kelly Ferguson. I asked her to demonstrate something she uses regularly in the wintertime when it's cold and we had a lot of snow last winter I could make sure that it was going to warm up before a forty one went downstairs so I'd say Alexa Sepah Thermostat to sixty eight degrees and what you're hearing is long awkward pause and then it would kick on warm up before we went downstairs so she's silent she she flashed like she was listening Alexa Sir set the Thermostat to sixty eight trying to them mm-hmm so there's one of the things that can be Wayne of how we need to reinstall update something because we haven't used the thermostat on since May probably a lot that hasn't happened yet with the Thermostat but there are times that things that you're expecting she's going to know how to you she'll say sorry I don't understand or something like that so I don't know I don't know got thing with the thermostat was despicable at the Ferguson House I saw Alexa mess up in other ways too like when seventeen year old corbin tried to get elected to help him with an Algebra Formula Ah for his homework and Alexa got confused Oh well off that's strange I guess I didn't want to tell me that but that's Corbin and his fifteen year old sister macy they're willing to forgive Alexa because it works as well enough of the time I just feel really fancy when I have people over or and I'm on a phone call and I say Alexa turn on the lights or what's the weather that's really cool that you can have that to do that for you because I feel like my little like servant or Butler Butler out of the mouths of Babes I think so many people secretly feel this way having a little Butler oh my ooh but for Kelly the jury's still out I will use it because it's here but if it was gone I wouldn't miss it so it's kind kind of it's here and it's functional and the kids like it so I could go either way on it did you talk to anyone else in the neighborhood yeah and I heard a lot of the same thing you know I didn't buy the House for the smart home devices but I've come to appreciate them and now I would not live without like what I think the one is the front doorbell were bill with a video camera a teenager it's nice to confirm when they come home and I have like proof of it so that's a huge plus ironically that's is probably my favorite that's drew homes who lives on the same street as the Ferguson's Alexa let's him control access to his home no matter where he is so so I was actually on a business trip in another state and my stepdaughter realized she didn't ever key with her so she just texted me hey can open the door and I opened the door from Oregon and so that was nice I didn't have to Brahms yeah the Joshua what are these houses cost somewhere between the mid four hundred thousands to the mid six hundred thousand thousands but get this I compared the smart homes with the ones built by another builder that are not smart and smart homes sell for ten to fifteen thousand dollars more um I can see how individual households are using this but did you notice any impact on the neighborhood yeah that's really interesting actually I did notice something something there's sort of two camps growing in this community and it's really apparent on the street the Ferguson's live on because on one side of the street all of the the houses are smart homes and they have ring doorbells with video cameras and on the other side of the street the houses were built by another builder and they don't have smart home technology -nology Kelly Ferguson says when she walks down her street she crosses over to the side without the smart homes just to avoid needlessly popping up on her neighbors cameras oh how fascinating she's not the only one in this neighborhood though who has mixed feelings about smart home technology therein Smith chose one of the houses uses that didn't include all that stuff and so just the thought of having cameras in every room in that potential exposure that could be found and exploited just kind of made us nervous about it but again I don't think it's bad intentions from you know the our homes but just personal concerns he actually works in Tak and he says that's how he knows the risks that data's not just sitting there empty somebody's GonNa look at it and leverage it to try to turn a profit or try to create an ad or try to create some revenue right surveillance capitalism the idea that any data stream accompany company touches can be used to profit that company yeah he's bringing up an interesting point I mean in the same way that the Delta Faucet will we'll be continually updated even after it's installed in your home the policies behind smart devices can change too but there's one more complicating factor consider it's one thing when you own a home and the household chooses to invite Alexa inside it gets a lot more complicated if you're a renter more on that after the break so Carolyn I've been curious about how well smart homes work for their occupants occupants and I learned that often they do work great but they're not perfect I mean there's upkeep to consider and concerns about data but there's another really interesting piece of this when you don't own or control the technology things can get complicated I brought in frenzy rose nerve to talk about that she's been studying cutting smart homes for the University of Washington's computer science department she co Directs the Security and privacy lab there you know one of the things we see with technology is that it can exacerbate existing power dynamics or existing tensions that may or may not be militias sometimes they they are then it's even more concerning but if the technology is not designed in a way that's thoughtful to those who can actually make some of those situations worse Rosner offered me a couple examples samples from a steady she did in the first example a woman is throwing a huge party in a home she's renting and she did not tell the landlord about the party now the landlord had installed a security camera you know in case of a break in and during the party someone unplugged the nest camera in the kitchen because they wanted it to recharge their phone as one does the camera has this feature where if somebody unplugged it automatically sends an email to account is associated with the camera and it has a photo voter last thing the cameras saw and this notification said your camera was unplugged this is the last thing the camera saw and

I shamed in louisville after a rare week off. Probably the last saturday assuming everybody stays healthy last saturday. We'll have off until april ryan limit. How are you and the weather was absolutely beautiful. It was like baseball weather outside for the weekend. All perfect was this weekend. I mean in november to be seventy five degrees imperfect and now that means ryan they had the the derby at churchill. They had the breeders cup keeneland. And you couldn't have prayed for better weather for either one of them. People didn't get to go. You're right. I hadn't thought about that. You're right that derby had a perfect weekend of weather and we did also for breeders cup and nobody got to go and enjoy it. Yeah i mean well. The there was some rich people. I think they got to go. But for the most part people did not get to go but shannon. What did you do here on your weekend off. Well the chaos bar and grill. We had a great day. They're gave away some money. I think everybody enjoying themselves. Were coming out over the weekend and we think everyone who showed up. Let me tell you something. We learned that if you give away five thousand dollars from the breeders cup of people the and you know. I'm a big horse racing guy but you put a little money on the line. All of a sudden i have an interest in it. How about the fact that that one kid one five hundred dollars both days me of a place full of people and that kid wins both times and he walks away with a grand over the course of two days we will you said when he went with you on friday he got his five hundred dollars and then just walk down good. He won the second race on friday. We gave you the five hundred dollars. And i went back to congratulate him. He'd already left. He was like see out and then he came the next day. One five hundred dollars again. Did he leave immediately after that as well. No but he wasn't the very first race on saturday and he he did stick around. I know at least for a little while. He stayed to the classic but he was there for a little while lease. He did say that he was going to buy a round of drinks for everybody at the bar. Everybody gets a water. That was those were the words. So i'll thank the lord. We appreciate your support anyway. It was fun weekend. Ryan went down to nashville and then flew to fayetteville. I watched arkansas tennessee. I can't remember the last time ryan. I've been to a college football game. Where i didn't really care who won. I mean i wanted tennessee to lose. Don't get me wrong. But like you know i mean it's weird sitting in a game where you really don't have a rooting interest and i actually really enjoyed it. You know i'm so tense during you for football and basketball games to be able to sit there and just watch a game and just be like wow. I hope arkansas wins. But they don't so be it. That was actually a lot of fun. I was gonna ask you how that experience was. Sec football's awesome but to go to an opposing field and actually kind of have the art. Never been there. It's a really nice stadium. I mean. I don't know what i don't know. It looks like they said they may have redone it recently. But it's a really nice stadium. You know my friend hubby that went with me said that he's been to uk games. He said the atmosphere was better at arkansas. Because they know how to do the sound better like the fake sound made. It seem like stuff was going on the whole game. Oh yeah okay and actually you know. We talked a lot about during the summer. If we were four fake sound or not now having set in person at a college game on saturday and then i went to bears titans on sunday. I can't imagine watching if they didn't have it. You don't want sunday at one point during the game with the bears and titans shannon the sound they cut it off for like two minutes and it was like it was like you were in a library. It really really was like it was like it was almost eerie. Like there's no sounds coming from anywhere. I am surprised how much that these games need that. Fake crowd noise. I don't know man. I mean i still feel like i want to hear the. I don't think you want to hear it if nobody's there like those sound at all and then there's a play and it's just silence. Is that what you really want to hear. If that's what's really going on. I would rather have that than be lied to i. I thought i agreed with you until i sat and heard the sound of silence to quote sign because ryan. The sound of silence of the game is actually kind of eerie. Yeah i think just to add a little bit to the energy level the excitement level the ambiance you gotta have that piped in noise music or whatever their piping in wanna tell you one story though so we get so we get there so i flew down there with with bobby bones. The radio guy. And he had three of his friends ryan and wh- and when he introduced me to them he was like this is my producer. His name is eddy and these are a couple of my songwriter friends and they were very nice. Guys both of them. I really liked them both but he introduced me to one and he was like now. This is matt still. And he's big right now. He has the number one song in america. And you know ryan when he said that. I kind of thought bobby's being is. How could this guy of the number one like. I've never heard of this tall guy in the picture. He was a big dog. I'm like he can't have the number. One song. I i sort of looked at it like if i if i introduce shane and he was like this. The number one. Dj in america right here. You know 'cause in my heart ryan shannon the dude. The number one dj in america but in reality. I mean listen to me your number one shannon but if there was a ranking of deejays. I'm not sure you'd be number one and top one thousand exactly so i sort of thought it would be like i'd be like hey this shit dude number one. Dj in america's ryan limit number. one real. Turn america right here right so he so they say that and then i just kind of move on and then about an hour later bobbi comes over and goes you realize man. He has the number one song in america. So i look and ryan. He has the number one song in america. The number one country song in america is this guy song matt still and then all the sudden. I don't know if you've ever like all of a sudden i sort of. I didn't wanna look at him differently. But then i was like. Oh this is like a big country person. And i didn't even realize it. Nicest dude in the world love talking to him. But it was weird like that sort of shows how detached i am rhein from current country music that the number one song in america guy and i didn't even know that was a thing and then i come from all of a sudden you see differently. You talk to him and then all of a sudden. What's so weird shannon is. I wasn't nervous talking to him at any point until i heard that. Yeah yup i get it. You're intimidated by this a little bit. Like he was just for a while. I just thought he was a guy and then when he had the number one song in america it was like. Oh you're number. One song in america guy so i have to be careful. Did you feel inferior to them at that. Point the number one song in america have you well not yet but i'm working on it. I don't know it was just. It was just different so anyway for those of you. That are matt still fans a seven zero seven seven four two five four. I'm curious how many of you are listening. Knew who that was because then fell. Almost ryan embarrassed that i didn't know who he was because i felt like you should at that point and i did not i. I listened to a lot of country music and i. i don't know that name. I may recognize you song when you play play the saw when we come back shannon. I think let me tell you what it's called is it called pray for you or is it called everywhere everywhere but on the current number one song. Okay for you. I think is the song he's like was he had before that. But it's the current number one song so anyway five zero two five seven. One eighty had a lot of fun. And thanks to to bobby for helping. Make that happen. Yeah i am getting a buzz here. Let me see if it's me. I tell you what you guys talk for a second. I think it's probably me. This could equipment that drives me nuts. Let me right there. You fix it. Yeah it's gone are the buzzers gone annoys me to more and i. I think the big news of the weekend is actually came out late friday and i think there was a sense of a lot of organizations. We talked about this ryan that if you had news you wanted to drop that. She didn't want to have a lot of focus on. Put it out this weekend as they announced the new president right like people won't focus on it. You can't ads on friday that they've dropped rex chapman from the pre-game show. And they're putting in jack gibbons. Now let me start with this. Both of those men are friends. Ryan is that fair to say. Oh yeah we we. Both those guys consider them friends. They've been on this show a lot no issues with either one of those guys. Those guys are so in talking about this. Let me be clear insane. I like both those guys. I think both those guys do really good job when you heard that news ryan. What were your thoughts coming out. And friday at four o'clock and again no disrespect to jack. Gibbons i love giving but that was a total move by a uk and gm. I because they didn't want to address the fact they were taking wrecks off the pre-game show. That's exactly why they did it. So late on a friday because they knew as a controversial move of removing rex whether it was his political issues or what. He's done sarah that do you think that's why they removed. I think that probably definitely played a role. I probably played a bigger role than we all. They want to admit they'll never admit it. Of course they won't admit it but that's why they did it. They didn't wanna have to confront the issues and answer the questions. Is this. why you're doing. It removing rex because of his political stances that he's taken several years. I sort of start with this point. I think rex was very good on that. Pregame show now. Sometimes he and dave we get a little goofy and they'd start seeing in and i'd be like what are you guys doing. But for the most part when it comes to breaking down basketball ryan. I think rex's great at it ending outstanding. He really is. I mean when he talks basketball. I think he's as good at it as anybody. And i've heard jack do it and i think jack will be good at it but i think it would be at some point. You is going to get asked about that. And they have to admit they were moved him because the politics i mean they did right right. Did let's just beyond now. Some of you may think that's okay. But that's why they did it. They did it because rex talk politics online and he was in the navy mcgrath commercial. Now here's my question shannon. Do you think let's leave us up. Let's say he was in a trump commercial. Forget about who. He was in a commercial four. Do you think. Uk should have sort of a. If you say something about politics you can't be on our pre game show test man. That's a tough question. I think that they should have said that before. They gave him the job that way. He knew going in that if he said anything leaning one way or another politically on twitter facebook whatever that they could possibly take his job from. If if you knew that ahead of time you know what. I'm saying. I mean i guess we don't really know if they did or just say that they didn't tell him that that i think it's a bad move. What about you ryan. I don't think it did affect his job at all. What he did with dave baker on the phone the pre-game show no not at all. So i i to me. I think it was total. Coward move by doing it at four o'clock on friday because they didn't want to address the questions that were coming. All you remove did you. Because of the of his they're gonna get asked that aren't they at some point that's not going to go away. They would have gotten asked it more if it happened on tuesday. They're going to get asked that question. I mean my view is this. You've heard me say it's a million times. I don't care what political side you on. If do your job i think. Uk has a perfect legitimate right to look rex. Chapman dave baker. Tom leetch might pratt. And say you all cannot talk politics during the game. Do you agree with that. I think they completely have that right. Jeff i absolutely and say when i was on their broadcast they said that to me and i did and i think everyone has that right to say that. But i don't think you has the right to look at a person. Say you can't say it outside of that on your personal time you k. Would lead for some history k. Would let for campaign for people for governor. He did he would let for would go speak during governors races and campaign for people. Jobe hall was is. It wasn't is a democrat. who campaigned. mitch. Barnhart is very involved in politics behind the scenes. I just don't think it's right to then look at somebody else and say you can't do now. Does things on twitter. That i wish he wouldn't do and i've said that to him before i've called him. Sometimes it said man. I think you're crossing a lot but to me to take that dude's gig. Because of that. I don't think it's fair. And i think if it were if he were a trump supporter. A lot of you all listening would think that too. That should have been different than his job. And i think jack will do a great job. But i think that's a lane move and they should have to answer to it mitch. Barnhart should stand up and say why did it and then answer to five zero two five seven one eighty text machine seven seven seven seven four or five two five four. We'll take a break if you disagree. Let me know. We'll be back to talk to matt jones. And the crew. Called the clark's poppin shop online at five. Oh five one. Ten eighty or one eight seven seven nine. Four two naty orson as the kentucky brandon or tweet of the day by twenty matt kyi sports radio now for more news on the blue can talking sports radio on. Talk radio big o. World outside his little town the other signs shannon this match down. This is the number one song right here currently in country losing a good days Thousand the few stay last between me and you just a little space and time ashby and trying to update like when i heard this. I heard this song ride. What's before like just driving in hearing it on ninety one. Had you ever heard this now that you hear it. Yeah i heard it. And matter of fact was the first time i heard ninety one the bull. I thought it was walker. Montgomery i thought it was john. Michael montgomery saw a son. 'cause he's he's got a song that sounds similar and the voice down similar. I'll watch while they're playing it. It's walker montgomery song then. I realized obviously it's not so we'll play his other on that. They played a lot of wins five. Oh two five seven one today. it's tech machine. I want to go through a few says. Matt rex's political stuff didn't bother me. I didn't like the things he said. I felt like. We were downgrading the state or u. k. Basketball remember what. He said the night of the national championship game. Well i remember that ryan when he said cal was gonna leave but that can't be why they did it because they hired him after that you know what i mean like when. He said that he wasn't on the uk broadcast team in ryan. They hired him after that. So that can't be why it was not a factor. No one person notes. Dave baker is a very adamant public conservative. And he still on. I agree with that debuts to host a conservative radio show every day and still do the games and i was fine with it. He should be able to do that in. My one person writes matt. What if it wasn't mitch or uk but it was actually j. Emma well then let them say that. I think they owe an explanation at least publicly to me. You're talking about in rex. And jack gibbons two of the biggest names in the history of this program. I think fans should deserve to hear what happened. Yeah now this is somebody who who text me during the break somebody would know what if i don't know if it changes your mind. But what if. Rex had been warned several times previously to tone it down. But what does that mean. Tone it down. You know we'll ask you to put it in a different way. Do you think a member of the uk broadcasting team should be forbidden from being in a commercial for a candidate now. Apparently he did that after he was already let go. Oh is that right. I think this has happened for a while. You're saying yeah yeah. Let him go and happened weeks ago. Well anyway. I don't think it's right but you know well. Listen i mean you know ryan mitch. Barnhart pulled me to the side when i was on the uk games and told me to not have the political debate on our show. If i wanted to be on. uk games. And i told him no. I was going to have the political debate you and if they didn't want to have me on uk games. That was fine. Well they ended up keeping me on them so he didn't let me go for that but that was him. He looked at me directly and said that so clearly. That was an issue. And i just said you gotta do what you gotta do. But i gotta do what i gotta do. I'm going to do the show. The way ryan that. I wanna do it. They try to be so careful to keep the political realm out of the uk realm but yet what people do in their private lives. I don't know how they can control the be that it's that big a deal to them. When john bainer was the speaker of the house they brought him and he set in. Uk seats good point. Yes he sure. Did he did. And i'm fine with that. By the way i'm fine with but then you can't let rex go in my opinion for same thing. Did you watch any of the college football this weekend. Right watched a lot of it. Yeah we watch it at bar there. When we were shaded on saturday came home. Watch a lot of games here. Winston notre dame was one of the highest rated college football games and fifteen years. Yeah you know they had to cut away from it for the biden accepted speech and that was probably part of why it got that rating but still it was three times higher than any other game this year. Yeah double overtime. I mean it was a great game. It was very exciting for that game. But i saw a stat. The what was the sad about trevor lawrence. So he had never ever lost a game as a starter but now since he's been out boston college almost beat him. And then notre dame beats them and shows you how it shows how great he is though. You know what. I mean like clearly. He is like other worldly great. Do you think this should punish them for the play. Offs are the playoff people. Say well look. They didn't have trevor lawrence. That's the debate that's fake. They lost the game. That's not fair to these other teams. That have not lost just because you lost your quarterback. Can't they lost the game can hear him back. Are you basically like tough. Loss is the loss. You've got gotta stay home. So that's part of the season you know if you're not healthy it's glenn who's next year. We'll start with jeff. Jeff how are you. I'm good morning good morning. I hope you never leave the show but if you ever do the one person i would like to replace you chris power away. I know it was in the last five minutes select. Maybe some people didn't but i that was a great five minute segment. Jeff in that show. Yeah you got to check in with our until january lineage of eight hundred progress it see how see how the challenge is going. I agree with you anything else. Yeah yeah you got enough. I you can game last year. And so for that. And i wanted to ask you today. Would you rather have had one more year. John wall or one more year of limbo.

Here's jones song men's dell and this is the one he tells me like he gets asked to play with move mass. Thank the church. kids. Learn on sunday offer. Pray for you. It sounds a little familiar. I can't swear of her. Apparently planet rupp arena in december. And he said shaded would play on here. If we wanted he would become on and do like space like do this song on here on the radio. You wanna do that. Sure let's do that. I don't think we've ever really had any actual museum. We ever had anyone perform a song on here. Besides shannon joe. I don't think we have have. We know now that would be a. I think we should do it right. And what do you think. I if we can get the guy who has a number one country song in the country to come on and do it live heck. Yeah we gotta do it all right. I think we do. I'm with five zero. Two five seven one eighty. Let me just say a lot of. You're making very good points on the on this issue on the text machine one person writes matt. I'm not upset that. Rex is a democrat or whatever but my problem is what he says i think he crosses the line especially in the way he talks about people. Let me say. I agree with you on that and i like rex. Rex's my friend. Rex goes too far on twitter. I agree and i've said that he he doesn't tweet the way i would about these things at the same time unless he does something that krill crosses the line of like. You can't have that. I'm not sure still ryan that means he shouldn't like he should lose his his gig because he doesn't do that on the air now does have a right to do it. Let me be clear legally. Yes i think they do. I think they totally have a legal right to do it ryan. The question is just should they have done it and we only we keep saying you it it may not be. Uk may be j. m. i. Maybe the same thing though. They're in a partnership. And i and you and i both know if you once jay my to do something or vice versa. They do of course so. I don't care who actually pulled the trigger. It's they're in. They're in partnership together on that answer. That question would you rather had another iran. John wall or another year lynn boat. I would have rather had no year lynn boden. We had brain ninety year. After john wall he was great. Took us to a final four. You're seeing what we don't have when we don't have lynn boat. Yeah i think that question's easy also because what. What does the football team need. We need some sort of offensive playmaker. And it is. That's lynn boden. And you said we had brandon brandon. Now we've talked about. He actually had better stats than john. Wall brandon brandon is. He will be one of those people like keith bogans that we all remember as being really good but that never gets brought up when we talk about. Who's really good. Yes yeah he was. He was a superstar that year that we don't hardly ever talk about but they interest easy. need lynn. This is football team greatly. What what would this team look like with lynn boat. You think the offense would be. I mean it would be more explosive wouldn't it. Yeah put him in a slot receiver probably and it to get the bonnie's hands as much as possible and letting the goal is in one play. He could go seventy five yards. We just don't have it dude like that right now. we have. Nobody like that. Rodriguez can get you that. Five six seven yards but we have nobody that can bust a play like that. We just don't have the game. Changing dude i sit and watch titans and bears. They're perfect example. Titans have to do like that. In brand derrick the bears have no dudes like that and in a game where two teams are equal. One guy gets an explosive play. That's the difference. In the game and ryan otis their swing us and misses or excuse me auburn. The diplomats and auburn is seth williams. Was that guy. And we didn't have that guy we didn't have that guy. Yup yeah and you put lynn boden on the field. We may have one that auburn game. Holsters comp- changes that's right. Who's next shannon. Let's go to jacob jacob. What's up jacob. Hey matt how're you doing doing good I'm just kinda thinking about this basketball team. And i could be crazy. I mean it looks like it's pretty obviously stacked from top to bottom. And you know i kind of i don't know what you think about. This probably not early but any sort of platoon system at any point. You think alex. Now i think in twenty fifteen they did the platoon because they believe they had ten dudes who were all kind of equally. Good that the tenth guy which i think that year was marcus. Lee wasn't crazy. Worse than willie cauley stein. And the ninth guy who that year may have been alex poythress. Wasn't that much different than you know. Karl towns etc this year our best guys. No offense to the other guys are a lot better than the other guys. Bj boston terence clark and livy sar are on a different level than jacob. Top and dante. Allen and cameron fletcher. So i don't think a platoon makes sense. That's that's very important you. Can you think of coach that has aged more and eleven years in calbury fighting chance. You think i mean you know. And i appreciate the call the this job. We've talked about it many times. It's like the presidency. I mean you go back. Go back and look at george w bush in two thousand look at him in two thousand eight. Look at barack obama in two thousand eight. Look at him in two thousand sixteen look at john calipari in two thousand ten at him now this job just what ages you in a way that maybe other jobs. Don't look at toby in ninety eight when he took the job and look when he left and seven. It's the same thing. The great great comparison with the presidency because they both age instead of eight thirty years. And when they're here yeah. Trump didn't age trump. Say that that's four years versus eight four years. Yeah it's probably the difference in having like that fake tan. I mean. I'm not not being degrading. Having attained makes you look younger. Oh yeah have you ever gotten a spray tan shannon no to like you like do you wanna do it for the show. You want to do a bit where i get spray tan for the show. I'll do it sure. I think we should all get spray tan. I mean can you imagine if we came looking with a wonderful glow your us why every wrestler has attained. Because even if you're fat fat looks better than white fat. it's that true. Isn't that a wrestling thing. Tan fat looks better than pale. Fads true yes That's a that's a great on banner. That'll be chains gravestone. Tan fat looks better than pale. Fan a little pudgy. But he had attained to go with it. So it's a big shot. Shannon seems down on the four of us should all get a spray tape because you mentioned how much better we would look as we get older as we get older. It's going to be harder for us to relate to a young audience but maybe we all freight hand mix. The you know they'll be like man. Those dudes look how young they look with their glowing tans great endorsement opportunity great endorsement. Yeah reiner yen are yet. Let you guys do that. Aligns the match. How great that little bald spot would look saying exactly. It would look so good. Yeah come on. He's in who's next. Let's go to will will will spray tan. But i'm glad to hear that we'll before you get done hang on. I can't find your address shannon to me. But i lost it so so give it to him again. I got it okay. Well never mind go ahead. What do you got so this is gonna come all maybe a little anti pc. But i just gotta get something out. That happened on the weekend. Careful hang on. Let me just say this in all the i've been all the in the world we don't need anything anymore division. But i'll give you a chance. Because i like you. Well thank you. I like you too. There are people that are going on law and tweeting the people that are dancing in the streets for biden as completely fine but then as soon as notre dame students they rushed the field because they beat number one. oh have they forgot where and pandemic. they're doing the same thing and they're people that work college kids that are working with team and they can't see your pay. They can't see their parents is july and then try to talk to him at halftime and give them a hug and they have to hear no. You can't because of covid you can't get talk to them. He can't go. Give your girlfriend and kiss before the game because covance. But that's the bad thing but we go out and you just do that. Wanda equal three k. And you can't ask. A college student started learning. Virtually can't i just man me every one from ten to twenty two right now mentally and we can't do it again. Well first of all your koga. Yes but you're also gonna start seeing stuff well first of all. I actually agree with you on your point about the football. You know the like the people in the streets when biden one. You know it is what it is but i agree with you. Then the same people get mad at the notre dame students. I thought that wasn't. I thought that wasn't right. They're both spontaneous celebrations that happened. You can't you can't say one of 'em's bad and then say the other one is okay. So i'm actually with you on that there was one reporter who like it ten. Am said how great is this or noon or whatever and then that night said how terrible is actually agree with you on that you do have to be considered hanging there man. If you need anything you reach out to us okay. I'm sorry. I got mad. And there's a hole in the wall right now because we got so mad over and just not okay. Maybe you punch the wall. No saturday night. When we came back from the game. I mean my roommate now. We're just fed up with this right now. Being told what we can and can't do but it's just inconsistent so you can't tell them one you love them but thank you do It's just wears on. You have to throw you gotta do so i understand. We'll hang in there if you need us. You give a shout okay okay. Appreciated will fired up. Nobody brings the emotion will and chester to most emotional folks in in the listening audience. We'll take a break five zero two five seven one. Eighty skiers are more of the chaos are blue lights across the bluegrass county by county. Virtual tour presented by the kentucky office of highway safety after this to talk to that jones. And the crew. Called the clark's pump and shop. Phone line at five zero two five seven one eighty or one eight seven seven. Nine four eighty. You're listening to kentucky sports radio on talk radio ten so yes so much. You'll still feel like if we ever do anything i mean. Entrance music for me is probably always going to be where it was. But i feel like i feel like if i were to ever do something like run for an election lose. This would be the sun. They lose authority has to win. Yeah yeah you'd have to get john mellencamp permission to because a lot of these politicians now we'll go out there and people's music when they don't even get the permission of the artist and then people go. Hey take that all right. You know what john mellencamp getting mad at us. Not a lot of support ryan from the audience for us. Getting spray tans will be there with the radio show will live while you guys regaining your spray spray tan for him. I don't think she would. I'm pretty sure she would. I think she would like it like think about like you know. Even when he got the hair plugs he started looking younger. Started kind of being sort of sexy and swinging arrive now. Magic you gotta get to you. Got the tea white t. This is the final part. Like you get the spray tan. The teeth in the hair and all of a sudden he's like a machine is bradley. Cooper he is exactly right. he's just like bradley cooper. Why get rocket confused with him all the time anyway. I'll walk in january any whenever we get back to doing remote so that needs to be one of the first ones. We mean a spray tan companies. You just let us know. We'll all come then like during the show we could take turns like going into we come out like look at me. Say what's best with the spray tan. What's the best remote that could ever could ever occur. Birthrights matt what about sponsors. Do you think maybe there are some. Uk sponsors pushed it. Maybe i could see that ryan i mean. I think that's certainly plausible. That could've pushed the rex thing. I think not only sponsors but maybe some big time. uk donors. Maybe even you know put a call in and maybe it all and maybe led to it can't you here's my thing. If you're gonna do that. I don't think they should. I think they slay everybody be their own person. But if you're going to do that you better be consistent. I mean they're bringing in jack. Gibbons look jack gibbons given speaks political. It's all time right so they're going to have to tell him now he can't really gonna tell him he can't do that. You know i'm just saying you you start going down that path. I just think that's a slippery path. I think you should let people be. They should be able to shine and be proud of who they sell right. And if you know. That's that's kind of what i think at. Kyc which by the way. We're going to go the county tour. We're in perry county today. Then tomorrow ryan. I'm going to be driving in new york city. I'm going to new york. To spend a couple of weeks with rachel and so i'll be here wednesday but it's gonna take me a day to get there so i'm gonna. I'm missing tomorrow. And you're going to have allan cutler in studio with you to talk about his book. And i'm sure other things. Yes allen makes his triumphant return to kentucky sports radio. What you get to go. See your your new bride rachel bailey. Thank you very much. Alex trebek's passed away guys I would say do we definitively say alex trebek's best game show host ever. Oh i don't think it's a question. I mean he's he's he's he likes. You disrespect to alex. Trebek's is definitely up there in the top three along with pets. Jack okay. let's go through. Who is the mount rushmore. Gameshows bob barker by angry. Bob barker announced her back two of them. Who are the other two okay. So was guy time. That's who it was i. I was trying to think of his name. I think you gotta think about wink. Martindale because he hosted a lot of different game shows didn't he. Oh yeah. I think back in the game shows were big to like in the sixties or he was. He was the bob barker back in the day. If we put wink martindale then who's fourth. I just i can't get on with will fortune chan. I just think yeah. I'd say it's boring. i love it. You spin a wheel. Give me like everybody knows. You've got a buyer. The a but can i buy vow. I'd like it just. I can't get with that like so. Who who would be you if it's not all about chuck woolery. He's in the conversation i think. Richard dawson vam. Richard dawson should definitely be in the conversation. Yeah steve harvey's really good. He is all what what what is. Why did he have that. Reaction to steve harvey pop. Eubanks bob eubanks his name. That's a name from the back in the these older guys with guys. If you're like. Oh bob you like i mean i i know bob eubanks. It's actually not a bad one who he was on a lot of shows who was the guy that hosted the dating game the newlywed game see always had funny like double entendre. Who was that guy. I don't know but he doesn't belong on the gene rayburn name. I know you're talking about. Let's make a deal. Is it gene rayburn. Let's make a deal. No no gene rayburn match gain. That was that was monte money. Alan monty hall. Yes his match game. He was the guy with the microphone. That's correct jean radio. I'm not putting him on there. I think until someone gives me a better one. i'm gonna go back barker. Woolery and wink martindale. I don think will ris. Needs to be on your. What's your what's your pro. I mean why. Why i know. He's he's a kentucky guy. But so why don't you have been one of the great. I don't think of him being one of the great well. Why don't you show. You're saying that with such passion. What don't you like about. I mean again. Here's an example. Don't take this politics against him. He's big into politics. So what he was good on scrabble. What else did he do. I think he did the dating game. He did the dating game at. That's the only one i really remember. Scrabble dating game. I thought he was good at it. And i know she's not a host. But i would. I would put vanna white on there. I mean come on your will. Vanna white spoke in forty. Years doesn't matter stop it. Is there anybody who's gotten paid more to do little undercurrent exactly so. Why don't we put her on mount rushmore to stand there and hit a icon. Not why i can at least entertain sajakol. I wouldn't actually steve. Harvey is not a bad choice. But richard dawson probably should be on there Maybe richard dawson's the before whose neck before we move on. It is sad about alex. Trebek's i mean i he is an icon. Does that show survive him. Yes i mean. Prices right continued without bob barker. But it's not the same. It's you're right. It's not even close to being the same but it's still survived. It's still on the air. What do you think reid he. He made the show. Those are big shoes to fill. It's gotta be the right guy the right hire or the ratings tumble. I don't know why we have to think about who would be a good person gets billed. The she said anderson cooper. I don't think he would do it. Now i'm gonna bob eubanks is my fourth. Who's next thomas thomas. What's up thomas. Hey what's going on man. What's up just about the rex. Saying nama small supporters So conservative i make trump look like farney sanders. Okay okay but was i don rex i hey foaming at the mouth liberal. But you can't do that he i. I will defend to the death. His right to have his own opinion. That's what this humphries. All about as long as you don't cross the line without the idiot Listen i'm glad to hear you say that i agree with you. I mean i agree with you. I think maybe they can point some example where he's crossed the line like there are things she says. I don't think you should say but like crossed the line to where he can't be on. But i'm kind of with the i haven't seen that. I think he'd probably he should be able to be on now as a red blooded freedom loving american i cannot get on board with somebody being violent because of something they done on their personal time on twitter or whatever it it's not okay you know listen.

They're all good get her done. Everyone how you doing Wow well stay busy here in the studio over weekend. Yes i'm working on something and One thing i was doing was checking out some of these other social media platforms are beating the news. One i tried kept blog me in log me out logged me and locked me out log me in logged me out log me. And they really didn't want me on their too bad because they got a logging me out. And i'd have no idea reason why. But i did hear they've been having massive growth surrey leading into sample too much of it because i kept getting logged out which was irritating and I've started a list of mainstream media advertisers to boycott as i said in the last show starve. All these mainstream media. Companies don't support their sponsors so start making a list and see who's advertising on those making a note of it to not buy their products or services so definitely consider that. I don't think very many people are going to do anything probably not going to help. Hey greg hi brad high andrew. Thanks for checking in. Thanks saying hi to in good greg. Hope things are going good for you and your new job so checkup of the sometime. Hey it's was a beautiful weekend here. I mean crazy crazy. I'm all dressed for winter now and was in the seventies like seventy five degrees. Both saturday and sunday was it was in the seventies today. And now we're going to get cool weather. So i've officially transition though to keep myself healthy but Hate cold weather but it not a lot of can do about it. So one thing. I've been having trouble with jason. Have a sinology network attached storage devices for my for my naseer works good for really almost everything except the max do not have a hard time reconnecting with the with the folder. That has its backups. For time machine. And i have to like kinda han. Hold it to get him started once they start they do well but even then i've had even the mac men's back here kind of drop ziemba else had issues with their with their max trying to connect to time machine is really driving. A little bit crazy should happen. Automatically in. it's just it's not and if you did what did you find for A workaround in what was the. What did you find there so love to hear from you if you found a work around on a sinology unknown number of you have them. I've got one here in the studio one at the compound and Balance more of a media server for me than a actual device worry about backing stuff up too. Because everything's backed up here in the studio or at least is supposed to be so If any of you run into any issues with sinology and specifically time machine reconnecting to the drive complaining about it all the time Let me know. I definitely appreciate all right. So i got a great show lined up for tonight. Kirk did a good job finding Stack of stuff news cycle. Been a little bit weird. I think it's a election something. I don't know Just a little bit of Interesting in you know a mixed bag of news but one of the big things that came out. Today as samsung overtook apple as top smartphone vendor in the unites and quarter three samson's market share increase. Six point seven percent year on year in quarter three thanks to strong sales of its budget and mid mid range phones so They basically beat apple by three point five percent so samsung captured thirty. Three point seven percent of the us smartphone market in Up six point seven percent in apple comparison held at thirty point two. Lg grabbed the third spot with a market share. Fourteen per fourteen point seven now. Interestingly this is the first time since two thousand seventeen the samsung has outperformed apple in the united states. And i'm just thinking maybe it was because of the galaxy note twenty and again they're galaxy twenty line which they have some inexpensive phones and maybe parents were not willing to shell up the big bucks for the kids to get a new apple device. I i don't know and of course. Unlike last year apple did not release its new iphones. Third quarter this year industry analysts. Believe that this to played a part in samson's overtaking united states last course so we'll find out how this how this shapes out going forward but nice to see Samsung doing well with their with their with their phone sales. So apple's one more thing it was kind of hinted to me. I think i got an email from one of you or someone said something in Facebook or something and so new bat books with apple silicon so intel. I remember very very explicitly or very vividly. I guess maybe that's the better word. When apple announced intel in their macbooks fact i got the very first macbook pro first macbook had had an intel chip in it and pretty special. So if this is what. They're projecting this'll be the company's biggest product shakeup that we've known it's coming out of for many many years and this year's mac and again will not be like the usual fall refresh or even like october two thousand eighteen event. That brought the redesign macbook. Erin souped up. Mac mini this time. Apple is transitioning to a new mac processor moving away from intel to homegrown apple silicon and I don't think if we look to the future. It's been a long time since apple made the switch to intel. And i think they've had a good run. And this is actually bad news for intel. But this is the start of a monumental product line transition for apple and really for the first time apple be controlling the brains of its magnetic. Think about that and won't need to rely on another company deliver the speed efficiency innovation it craves and or features so nuts bolts apple. Silicon's pretty well especially you know with a silicon processor. That's that's a big big big big deal here and You know this is not a complete surprise as apparati. Tease new chips during ww dc. This past summer. Divorce been testing. Mac minis with the aid. Twelve z biotic chip. That's in the latest ipad pro. But even that's outdated apple since launch the fourteen by an can iphone twelve and ipad air. And we don't know exactly what the new processor will will be like. But we do have some clues. It'll be a very of eight fourteen and they're gonna be built using the five nanometer process so And we're going to be looking. Of course mac specific tweaks over the eighth fourteen ship. So you know. I have I've been holding. You know my macbook pro so far over here tapping at night on. You know very nicely. It's been operating quite well. What is the year what is the. What is the model on this show. I've got a what year is it. It's a To two thousand seventeen models. So i'm you know. I'm three years in on this macbook pro holding so far but but another year. It's probably gonna be time to To do an upgrade but so far so good but anyway as excited about this you mac users excited about this new processor so what is really going to be now as you think about it. Apple processors intel processors little bit of. Amd still but intel neom md will be really resorted to windows based machines so a true war once again and processor speed is is eminent. and many. Don't remember this but Processor wars were huge huge huge huge back in the day. And i think that This is what what we will foretell. We'll see if that's what the cases and with dell and all the other companies that make windows based machines whether or not this'll become a new turf war so Exciting times robert says in the chatter going to get a new mac book this year to replace my thirteen inch two thousand mac book. But i'm now waiting for the one with the arm processor. Wow you're machines at two thousand eight watson that's impressive holy cow that's We'll robert for the win. Eleven year old a twelve year old. mac already. Two thousand eight. Are you sure holy smokes. That's pretty impressive. All right so. I'm sure he's many of you have tried the the burger from burger king. That's not a burger and some you know derivative of meat. It's not meet but mcdonald's is now gonna reportedly create its own mc plant meatless burgers I didn't know mcdonald's burgers actually had meet in a to begin with and just joking. Obviously you're a little bit but it'll be tested them next year having already gauge interest in beyond me patties So they're planning tested in meat. Free burghers part of mc plant menu options expected debut next year. An executive for the fast tune repeatedly said that the mic plant was created by mcdonald's and for mcdonald's but apparently declined fight their supplier. A spokesperson for beyond me on monday said mcdonald's and the company's co created plate best patty that we part excuse me and mcdonald's run a test with beyond meat and and canadian branches last year. Anyone get one of these. So we'll see but i have yet to have an impossible burger. I guess refuse to do it. I just i just i. can't you know man. there's already too much stuff. It's manufactured is not real. You know nothing. I'm going to do is put some some factory. I just doesn't fit right with me and You know my family buys you know entire steers pigs lambs and put him in the freezer. You know we know what we're getting. We know where it's come from. We know where it's sourced but Who knows we've been neatness stuff out of fast food for years. So maybe doesn't make any difference.

The company will have to pay a fine for the time being they've already increase the security zoom so much. It's it's a heavy annoyance. It's really really annoying and you can't turn some of the stuff off you can't turn it off. There's either have to have user passwords or you have to be able to mid people one by one. it's really annoying. it really is. They went too far in my opinion and not being able to allow us to shut stumm off. But if the ftc finds that the company hasn't been hearing to the agreement interfaces finds a forty three thousand two hundred dollars for future offenses so time will tell zoom took a who zim took a heavy Hit today financially.
