"So. Let's get back to our conversation with David. Sounds very worthwhile. Thank. You thank you. Yeah. The the question of you know am I optimistic or pessimistic Cautiously. Optimistic and I'll tell you what you know. It's one thing to say I just feel that way. But right you don't one of the things about a when you do film. In one, thousand, nine, hundred in this in in. Today versus say in the nine, hundred, ninety, one, thousand, nine, hundred. Is. The film is promoted. On. On on on the Internet right Oh, you have you hired digital company. Digital promotion coming and they can tell you they can give you feedback. On what people think about a film? And in this case, it would be what they think about the whole notion that maybe if we solve some problems, if we did X. Y. and Z., we can turn this ship around. So I asked the headed A. Department who was doing this digital? Promotion for US I said so tell me what the feedback. And he said well, you know we. Re Usually We'll have the the trailer pop up. which is often the case for a film when you're turning them. They said normally with most trailers there is a in the first couple seconds as a brutal fall off. You Know People Watch it for a second. I'm. Then, the fall the fall off Increase. Increases, and that's just the nature of the setting. With stars, in strife. We have never seen anything like this I said, what do you mean? He said it's unbelievable. He said people stay with seventy percent. At that time we he was telling me that seventy percent of the people who look at your. At your trailer, watch it to the end. That's unheard of yeah. They said there is there's a very intense. Interest in the subject and I, said to him well, I would love to say it's all. Because of the uniqueness of the trailer. I think it's a reflection of people terrified people fearful the future, and so they they go oh, tell me more tell me more. It's not it's not the the normal film. So then this was interesting I said So where was the interest of the greatest? Brooklyn. New York. And Los Angeles. Now, they said, and where's the weakest Washington DC they said now Washington DC. If you separated from everything else and you said, I have film and here's here's what the interest is in Washington DC and online on the on on in the digital. World. You would say, wow, that's off the charts but. Brooklyn and one one-sentence two and a half times Washington DC. and. So it's really quite amazing and I said, well, that's that's fascinating to me because basically. That the heart of the hidden story, right interesting, it's not quite as like Do I need to? We really need you know it's it's No one. No one's attacked it. They just say. Oh Whereas I slowing people all over the country. You know they they. They grab the movie they just I. saw. Emails some people say I'm in. Tears. I I need and I think that that should sharpen our focus. And which leads me at this point. The solution. Weather we get out of the storm is not gonNA. Come from the top down it's.

"In this instance, they're just saying I don't want to be in the dollar and anyway that I find that very interesting but I do think there are consequences huge consequences. Everything you talk about i WanNa do a whole episode with you on it but unfortunately, there's so much more to cover. So so let's let's back up for a minute unless you can zoom out and look at where how, how does this play out long-term if we don't change the course that we're on, you know we talk about the end of America is we know it Are we really are we at risk of a hot civil war or is it more just a slow degradation of what made us a great country and a diminishing value of the Constitution that protects us? Well, how does what is what does this look like in the age that we live in? What's really at? It's funny. I would have dismissed the whole notion of Ottawa war except for the fact that gun sales going through the roof. It's quite remarkable. Find people that I never expected will say. Well, you hear anybody talking about gun control right now she's Magin in the last year how that was a real topic has nobody talks about it? It's not on the debate stage. Anyway please continue. No, I know I think it's just a low grade. Spends on who wins, but it's going to be a low grade continuation of the. And you know eventually. I think it'll be there'll be an economic effect will pay for economically because. You really want to invest in the country. where the can't seem to, they can't seem to solve its problems can't seem to move forward I think that's that's from I look at was just thinking about the the whole question of. You know the constitution. And you know there's a difference in approach to the Constitution. You'll have those who've you at as an authentic document that you know from the founders that you heal to and others see it as a living document that changes and all the rest right. But I kind of look at this thing and I wonder how?.

"United we stand divided we fall and why did I do it to be frank for selfish reasons I worry about my children and grandchildren kinda world believing yeah. So David, it's interesting when you talk about kind of the source or origin of this problem being hate with when we talk about it in this context, we talk a lot about the polarization peace and you know you've you've obviously been knee deep in this, but the centers of both parties continue to move further and further away from each other right and so so what I wonder is I know there's an incentive structure that that. That pushes toward that but is the root cause? Is it hatred or is the hate is a hatred of byproduct of the polarization or is it the other way around? I think there's there are concrete reasons for why we're divided and where the hate comes from. And I tried to get at the various reasons. One is economic. But also social and political reasons and the economic reasons are. Pretty clear. I try to get them using a lot of animation and humor, right but. Essentially, we have an economy in which Has Changed Fundamentally in the last thirty years is result of globalization particularly financial globalization in which you know the Berlin Wall fell nine, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, nine, and after that China Indian? scads of other countries joined the capitalist system. And for a lot of technical reasons, I won't get into We have record low interest rates, which is very good for stocks by the way. So we have thirty year bull markets only half the country on stocks. K. So. We've had half the country experience a party, the other half. Wage earners have experienced flat in some cases negative real wage gains, and so there's a built in frustration. If you feel you weren't invited to the party, what do you feel you feel humiliated? And what happens with the Malaysian that turns to anger often, and then Austin turns to hate and that's the link. But also there's a secondary reason economically when you look at the nature of our our economy and I'm not saying that we. By the way the the stock market boom was bad I'm just saying it's amazing to me that neither party. Sets. Yeah. Wonder how we can bring the other half of the country onto this great financial wage. And by the way, I had a proposal cory booker in the Democratic Party had a similar proposal. I. Have a proposal are rooted for the Wall Street Journal op-ed written for other people I said, let's if we could give the Wall Street banks. INSEN loans in two thousand eight. Yeah. Why not give every child at birth up to a certain level of Income Ivy Childbirth say ten, thousand, five, thousand, dollar loan payable and sixty years invested in stock index fund so that they can appreciate. that. Kind of Miracle Financial Compound neither made Warren Buffett Rich. So we can't just accept we have to expand capitalism for everyone and we have to teach people how that works. So anyway, nobody's interested in that both parties name. So..

"We're recording this at the end of a very sad week for America were on the heels of the first presidential debate. We saw president trump eagerly validate the character attacks leveled by his critics, and we saw former vice president Joe Biden join him in the mud pit with name calling and telling his opponent to shut up from a presidential debate stage. As this heirs, we already know that the news cycle will have shifted heavily to the president's personal health in the first lady have tested positive for Covid, nineteen, as well as the debate between Mike Pence and camera, Harris, which airs this evening. Let's not forget what we saw the first debate many people including. Myself are just feeling discouraged that the two proposed leaders of the free world seeming capable of the sort of decorum we expect from our highest office. It's my view that we all have some culpability here for rewarding the type of behavior that those of us in media in corporate. America have a duty to find ways that we can take action and restore the state of national discourse so that it is less about proud boys and more about proud Americans if you're listening to this program already taken the first step. So let me welcome. You to the divided states of media presented by Oxford Road and in collaboration with the National Institute. For Civil Discourse I'm your host Dan Grainger, and while we've been on this journey searching to find a path for national healing starting with our work in media and his corporate citizens I discovered a film that spoke to me and the problem of polarization in a way that nothing has before. It's a new film that's come out in the last few months called stars and strife, and it brought me to tears on multiple occasions, which doesn't happen a lot with me because of how well it captured the state of our divided nation and offered hopeful stories and practical solutions from folks on both sides of the aisle who operate at the highest levels of government and society. The film was Co produced by Barry Levinson think rainman good morning America the natural things like that and it includes interviews with Rahm Emanuel? James Baker Leon Panetta Alan Greenspan and a list of other powerhouse contributors. I am so pleased to introduce today's guests the writer director of the film David smick global macro economic. Strategist investor and author welcome to the show David. Jones great to be with you. I'm so so happy to have you here. Let's start at the start. I've been badgering people on this program and everyone I know personally to to watch the film because I think it's very important. Do you mind for those of us who have not yet seen it? To just summarize what it's about. The film and I should. I should tell you You know I'm not a filmmaker I I'm a global macro strategist I worked. For a bunch of wall, street firms, but I have had. Throughout. My career some instincts about what was going on one was twelve years ago I had this feeling that.
A Tech Cold War Looms
"This week Britain's minister, Boris Johnson is expected to reverse a decision. He made in January to allow the Chinese telecom giant hallway to build part of the country's five gene at work. The British public deserve to have access to the best possible. Now if people oppose one brand or not. To tell us what's the alternative. Britain has come under enormous pressure from its biggest America which sees while way as a security threat. It's not the only Chinese firm that America views with suspicion. Last week Secretary of State Mike. Pompeo told Fox. News the government was considering banning the social media. APP TIKTOK. Owned by the Chinese firm by dense. We're certainly looking at it I. Don't want to get in front of the president, but it's something we're looking at. What would you recommend that people download that APP on their phones tonight tomorrow anytime. currently Boley if you want your private information in the hands of the Chinese Communist Party. and American firms are caught to the geopolitical tensions between the world's two biggest economies. Google Microsoft and twitter all said they would stop cooperating with Hong Kong's authorities for the time being because of a sweeping new security law there imposed by Beijing. It all adds up to what's being called. A new Cold War fought on a digital battleground. For the last three or four years, people have talked about the tech. Cold War. Patrick Fouls is the economists business affairs editor. This strange thing is it's been hard to see evidence of much damage on the ground, and in fact, the companies like apple and Hallway in China. It's really been a golden era in some ways with record sales and profits over the last couple. Couple of years was become clear however in the last few weeks. Is The tech cold? War is really beginning to bite. And why is that? Why is that split becoming so much more certain now? Well I think what you can do is look at it at two speeds. The world of software and the Internet was never particularly linked up in the first place so. Chinese consumers can't use most American Internet companies and vice versa, and what we're seeing, there is the final tentacles are beginning to unwind really very quickly, and that's that's example. The TIKTOK BAN THE REFUSAL US tech companies to play ball with the new Chinese law in Hong Kong so that. World really splitting quickly. The thing that's taking more time is the heart where supply chains which are much much more rigid structures is many many hundreds of billions of dollars of equipment in the grand huge numbers of people being employed, and it's really very hard to untangle those quickly, but that does not seem to be happening as well partly, because of the American actions against Hallway, but also because China seems to be deciding okay, we're GONNA have to go alone here which means we're going to have to really ramp up investment, and so, how how prepared are the country's respective? Tech Industries to to make that split complete. Will in the wall, the softwares already in effect pretty much happened in the world of hauled where the answer is, people are beginning to get plans up and running so smick this Chinese semiconductor company not take that seriously in the past by its Western and Asian competitors, but now it's really raising very big box the ideas to supersize the production capacity and sophistication of semiconductors in China. That's a process that's underway. Similarly Wall Way in China is scrambling around to find alternative sources for the key components that it purchases from the West particularly American companies and over the next I think eighteen months will see a sense of whether that's possible. The one thing to make clear is there are some companies. Companies here which are just left in very uncomfortable positions. Apple in China makes over one hundred million dollars a day there on the simply no easy way for it to pick sides in. You know it depends on the US Amazon China similarly. TSMC, which is the huge Taiwanese semiconductor company that really dominates the industry to some degree. It depends on Chinese customers and American ones, and for those companies that are caught in the middle. There really is no simple answer to this, but if the big picture here is that each country has to build up its own set of software and hardware champions, that sounds expensive redundant I mean. How easy will it be for these countries to make those parallel systems? Well I think you can look at it in two ways. One is sort of finances of it almost an and just that you're going to have to duplicate. Supply chains to some degree and I think that could easily cost. Hundreds of billions of dollars to do is not impossible, and arguably within the scale of the overall economy is a super tolerable inefficiency. I think the other call St-, which is much harder to get to grips with is just the risk of this process spiraling out of control. And to give you two ways in which could happen, it could easily for example move from the world of tech to the world of finance with western Chinese banks subject to sudden private. BANS FREEZES OF ACTIVITY. A night could be much more destabilizing because the financial system is very sensitive to changes like that the other risk is just that this becomes the thin end of the wedge, and sooner or later we find out that suddenly American calls or Chinese toys, or a growing list of things deem to be of strategic importance I and instead of this really being an argument bat security, it just becomes an indiscriminate path of protectionism, the house, a huge economic cost, but on technology end of things that is inherently a global business. How do you think other countries are going to deal with this split as it happened? Well the assumption I think of many American policy makers is the world's default is to use Silicon Valley and one of the things that will happen is that assumption is tested a pretty painful way? It's clear that some very close American allies. Japan Australia possibly Burton will. Ultimately vast choose go with America, but I think we'll see. First of all. China's tech industry now has a very big sphere of influence that includes a lot of Asia where people will continue to use Chinese tech, and secondly that some big economies India's the obvious one may take a third off, and you know be equally hostile, friendly to America and shine. And really seek to play both sides off while developing their own indigenous capacity, so the end of the day. You're heading towards a world where America. Controls most of the world's technology, and then there's this Galapagos of China with its own systems. I think instead your heading to world, which is very fractured with the bulk of the world's population living in countries that use both systems and probably mistrust both to some degree. So. Is it sensible to ask who's likely to win the technical door? I. Think will see both superpowers do probably just find because they are huge. Sophisticated markets and the real losers will be the node countries that are sort of stuck between the two places like Taiwan Hall Sibley Career, where really it's impossible for them to pick sides, and where the own technology industry as a result is going to face a very difficult Erie. Patrick thank you very much time. Jason thanks for having me.
It's Officially the Best Time of the Year to Cook
"Talking about the fall playbook from the September issue of Bon appetite and really should have been the whole Lsu but we'll talk about the issue with the issue Chris. Do you remember when this story is being conceived and you you and Andy and I were talking about what this story could or should be. What was what was the mission we sort of decide upon we wanted to get into sort of get people into the mindset of like okay like summer's over but that's not necessarily a bad thing like we want people to be excited to get back into the kitchen and you know just give them like some recipes that that are kind of simple uncomplicated whether it's something that cooks quickly but it's kind of hands off you know or some combination of Maimi? It's longer cook time but I'd like with zero. Prep just give people an excuse to feel great about getting cooking again getting back in the kitchen. A one phrase that I have bandied about is the Shen situational cooking because I think that dictates a lot about what we make when is it. Is it Sunday when you've got all day to sort of braise something in your job in Tuesday night when you wanna eat something good but it's six twenty eight. PM and you haven't started cooking yet. That's a lot of ways we sort of approached these recipes of which seven recipes Andy. I don't believe so one of the recipes got cut so yeah which one guy cut. I don't understand got cut it. It was it was designated to become a digital exclusive yeah yeah. It's like the right part which one was it. Was the lentil bowl well. I don't think it was called that I think it was like it was like girls wasn't with with the Spice Chili oil and then it was just like I am just going to call it a lentil bowl for now 'cause it got cut. I think we realized that people only want to work so hard on a lentil bowl. That's true and it took a little bit of doing. I don't know I do get excited like that. When there's fall there's a little bit of bite in the air and summer's over in summer is great. Go to the beach grilling all that but it's nice actually just get serious about wanting to be in the kitchen. Point your cast iron skillet point out your Dutch oven getting your tongs and cooking again yeah and having the patience to really think about what ingredients I mean th you should be thinking about ingredients around but really putting the time in for cooking the dish you wanna be cooking the first recipe this. This is Morocco recipe right now. Oh yes that's very interesting interesting. He's got all this pasta. So of course I wanna eat this just by the title Creamy Pasta with with crispy mushrooms. Yes I wanted to come up with the positive I've done so many over the last. I think almost four years here but I don't think I've really done a creamy creamy pasta dish with mushrooms. I love Pasta Love Mushrooms. I was like the smick sense and it feels very fall and I thought this could come together fairly quickly and that was my hero and then we do a lot of creamy pasta from the standpoint of Oh you know glossy emulsified butter. Oh yes but I was like Andy. Just put cream in the pasta. You know how you make creamy pasta sometimes if the move fast and and you know not break things like just put cream in the pasta and my life I started twitching when he said this heavy cream andy make it delicious. I don't know how many recipes I have have that call for every cream but in this case I did go for it and it really did make a difference. It just made it easy. It was like a nice little thing crutch to the US also when you blend heavy cream and then throw some parmesan cheese it is so good. Is that the problem with Italy one of those again on the streets as the pastas that you can't stop eating. It's like you don't want to see a calorie counter going but it's amazing sorry so this one. Mike you can use either just simple criminally mushrooms. You can find any market or you can go to the farmer's. There's market and splurge on a lot of interesting wild mushrooms and re introduced different flavors and textures guess a question. I always have when I love a mushroom positive because it feels it was very autumnal. How do you cook the mushrooms themselves so they get Nice Brown and caramelized and Krispy before you know blending with the cream and all that because I sometimes I get Kinda just squeaky and squishy and you know what techniques so sometimes you if they're using a lot of motions Russians in this case we're using a pound of mushrooms. You really want to do it in batches. Most likely I like tearing my mushrooms up a lot of us do that and you end up getting these kind of crackly pieces and so they get Brown because also when you cut him up the end up looking like canned mushroom sometimes they just don't look right I kind of tearing them to their natural shape and and then I took them in oil in this case extra virgin olive oil and then I just go pretty hard undisturbed until the brown around on the edges to they develop a crust. Yes over yeah. Give it a little bit of a toss. I don't even know if I really flip flipping each individual mushroom. If you work in the line my new restaurant shaking I think I read somewhere and wait a minute petite mushrooms to develop a nice caramelized crust you. I don't add salt till the very end. Assault draws out too much moisture. Is that correct yes. I don't see my mushrooms until both sides are deeply brown and crispy see around the edges. Ah also some shallots. I love that smell when you shall. It's there's no sort of introduce a pretty classic yeah and then you get all the mushrooms on add the shallots shallots You're not trying to get too much earlier softening them and then wall while you're doing that. You have the mushrooms ready to go. There cooked the shelter going. you cook your pasta and you're going to cook it. Just under all dented like two minutes before for and then I add the pasta the heavy cream and let that go until the cream has reduced lightly and then I add a bit of zest and juice from half Philemon ooh. There's a lot of the cream is so heavy who you have creaming of butter and your Parmesan yeah so there's quite a bit affect and you have extra virgin olive oil so you need a bit of zest and juice. You need that acidity kind of brightened things up and bring everything back to life again. Yeah couple of tips here love the pulling the mushrooms apart pushing the mushrooms by hand tearing the much mushroom by hand I love not salt in the mushroom still after they're nice and Brown then thirdly what you guys in the test kitchen seem to love to do is use a Dutch of in when you're sort of like tossing pasta with whether it's mushrooms or any sort of saw that you that is high enough side toss and swirl and get everything inc.. It's it's such a good little insurance policy for being able to really work the pasta around and like let's face it even just twelve ounces nevermind a pound of Pasta in the largest skillet you own. It's it's fine to work. Bring it over to the sink to try to toss pasta over that so that you don't get all of your stove okay. I'm going to bet that this is all right. Let me say what is the next one. It's called Sweden saucy pork chops. I'm GonNa Citrus Morocco too good. It's kind of a dad families or not honey over to pick up. Some pork chops underway right. Oh my God all right. Wow that's how you really see me. Hunched over like the plate of pork chops like not talking. Can anybody on a Tuesday this to cope we buy some good bone in rib pork chops but you call for one inch thick one so they cook really quickly quickly but so you don't have to overcook them you add some sugar to sort of Maryland Dryer up. Whatever so we get a quicker caramelized cross yeah just just salt in a sprinkle of sugar on the pork chops because the thing is pork chops an in a perfect world we all be buying like pastor raise heritage breed pork and it would be super fatty and rich and unctuous? You know just whatever you do to it but this is kind of optimize to work with any pork chop. This is like you know and this is a a method of cooking them that really mitigates that tendency to have them dry out and get like really kind of like cardboard so adding that little bit of sugar to the outside means. You'RE GONNA get crazy amounts of color within just a few minutes. You don't need to overcook that first side in order to get the color you want and that is like that is like the death of like the one inch inch thick pork chop. We went back and forth about what pork chop to us because we'll all of a sudden you want like a much fatter one in order to get got like a really great crust without using sugar but this just like. Let's get that really quickly and then you're really just you're. You're just you're picking that second. Side very briefly can interject with any piece of protein. One side is always going to get more done than the other in that side gets the beautiful cross that society serve up right. It's what's going on underneath doesn't matter yeah exactly it's like the old sort of old school. French like approach which is like you have the presentation side and then like who cares what the second side it's super yummy super easy pan sauce with some red wine vinegar that sort of introduces acids and capers butter and then disorder garlic and in the water. It's Rosemary and it all together. Yep and you serve it and it probably start to finish. How is this dish. Take fifteen minutes if that if that yeah I mean twelve twelve so yeah. It's it's great. You know like that kind of like that wet cook. You know kind of environment. Just like means like nothing's going to dry out doing when people see like some like pants author very impressive fastest like no that's just like cooking the pan and thrown much ingredients speaking of hands when I saw the photo for this sheet Pan Potato Hash with fixings and it was beautiful she he tray of these beautifully shingle potatoes at our oven. Crisper looks like homemade potato chips. I was like Oh my God that look so good. The question is which one of you develop this Chris Morocco. Wow okay okay yeah. That was me at this is this is. Andy doesn't do brunch brought. She's not doing potato doesn't brunch. Andes Andes Andy's protein smoothie. He's busy working out on Sunday morning onto this again. This is a very bad move like making brunch where the family well it look potatoes you can you can make them as complicated as he want where you can make them as simple as you want and this is just a great way to take a lot of potatoes and make them unbelievably. Lee crispy Jammie Chewy. Just everything you want so big russet potatoes. You don't even know thinly sliced. D Use a a mandolin it. Can you slice slice by hand because honestly the irregularity like it's going to be totally. I liked that because in some get extra crispy tender and that's fine in the oven these you're going to be in the oven for close to an hour you know were and you're. GonNa get some that are like crazy. Crisp like potato chip and others are just going to be no more in the center. They're going to be a little bit like Kinda. Chewy Jab ultra tender so I- similarly toss him with all spread them out on a sheet trays by two and a half pounds four twenty five forty to fifty minutes and an almost that's when you take it out almost with goes tray of nachos chose. It's like it's some. It's like the lovechild of like palm. Anna clarified butter like beautiful kind of fanned out sort of potatoes I did. I did this video with molly. Baas mayor. Would we are talking about cooking school in the next video video coming out on what is it on. It's on the Broccoli as a people are talking about urine. That video was wrong is so much about cooking.

Welcome to brainstorm a production of iheartradio. Hey, brain stuff. Lauren Vogel bomb here. Fans knew Andre the giant as the eighth wonder of the world, but friends and loved ones had their own designation. We spoke by Email with Benjamin Brown. An archivist for world, wrestling, entertainment, or the WWE. He said, under the giant was and still is affectionately referred to as boss, symbolizing, the respect he commanded and was appropriately given long before the towering icon, became a pop culture, phenomenon under the giant was Andrew SAAF, a French kid who led up somewhat average life until puberty hit born in Grenoble, France in nineteen Forty-six resolve was beautiful baby has older brother and Thuan said an HBO documentary about Andre's life, quote, he was normal his life changing transformation began in his early teens when it became evident that Roussel mauve had to Terry Glenn disorder called acrimoniously the sorter. According to the mayo clinic occurs, when the Patou itary gland produces too much growth hormone during adulthood, causing the bones to increase in size. It typically affects middle aged. Notes, but can happen at any age and what it strikes, still developing kids like it did, and muffs case it can cause a condition called, gigantism, which results in, abnormal increases in height and exaggerated bone growth, Roussel, muffs major physical, transformation occurred in the time between his departure from home at age fourteen to seek employment outside of granola and his first return visit at age nineteen nineteen Eighty-one Sports Illustrated profile reported indeed during the five years young Andre had been estranged from his parents, he'd grown so large that even as mother and father failed at first and even second glance to recognize him or to connect the giant. They had seen on television with the gangly dreamer, who would hide himself to Paris so long before. Of continued to grow by the age of twelve he hit six feet, that's one point eight meters and two hundred and forty pounds or a hundred kilos and rapidly grew from there. So he set his sights on a career that allowed him to use his size to his advantage. Wrestling after training with French champion Frank. Val wa who later became his manager worse enough begin competing under the name zone. Fair in Montreal and monster off in Japan. The young giant began making a name for himself, as a baby-faced colossal, competitor and bell wa introduced him to legendary wrestling promoter and Smick man senior as the founder of the world, wide, wrestling federation, or WWF, which later became the WWE McMahon made a few suggestions to increase Russa muffs.

Andre was both the leader of the locker room and measuring stick for all those who came after Andre the giant was intelligent multi-lingual an exceptional in ring talent. While the wrestler, success is indisputable his eventual size is up for debate most sources claim. He reached a height of seven feet four inches. That's two point two meters, though, according to biography dot com. He was more likely closer to six feet eleven inches or one point nine meters. It's full size Rousseff weighed about five hundred pounds, that's two hundred and twenty six kilos, the wrestler's unique physicality led to plenty of opportunities outside of the ring, including a memorable role in the nineteen eighty seven film the prince.

"Exactly like, you think this when you even need us if you can imagine what you think it is. It's that folks. It's that. Yeah. I really feel bad for. You know short of predicting this flavor. A couple episodes back when really didn't necessarily warrant the airtime. It's good though. It's good. I mean, it's kinda just like eating cinnamon toast crunch pasta. And a sense. I did get stabbed like in the roof of the mouth more than a couple of times. We'll try to take a particularly aggressive mouthful of it. I don't know if you experienced that. It's a hardier crunch for. Sure. I mean, this is what it almost your minded me of is a serial. That was out. I think in the nineties when I was younger called fingers, and it was extremely large pieces that were meant to be eaten with your hands fingers were designed to be eaten from not a serial shape container and your their hands. So they were bigger than traditional pieces that would be the perfect application of something. Like this. I wanna see mixed up in a check Smick style thing like pecans and chocolate. And and things like that chocolate is a is a big flavor that I think is missing from this that would really help to set it apart. Angry. But I mean at that point with like the fingers to can it really be like technically called a serial. It's like, hey, this is serial, but you don't get the spoon. You don't get to put milk in it. And it's basically just a snack. But we're calling it this and you're gonna like it fair. I wanna complain them. So that is delicious predictable there to other cereals that are will more. Curve balls. Watch tells those. So yeah, let's start with a a serial that is actually a pair of cereals. It's new pop tart cereal, which is sort of a soft reboot of the pop tarts crunch franchise that board was born in died somewhere in the mid nineties. So we have to flavors the classic pop tart flavors of strawberry and Brown sugar. Just like we saw over twenty years ago, but they're inside these pretty much replica crave. Shapes. If you've had that one it's it's very divisive in the serial community, everybody either loves it or thinks it's dog food. I believe these pop tarts face, a similar fate in that the biscuit shell is really getting in the way of the great stuff. I mean. Pop. Tarts crust is really good like it's really puffy and buttery and it kinda deserves better than this. It's almost like they just took a giant sprinkle and rolled it out like dough and wrap the filling in that. But just very one dimensional in that way. I feel like the frosting on a pop tart. Strawberry parts is like and Brown sugar to that point. Is extremely extremely specific flavor. How how close did they get? I mean, I would say the feeling of strawberry gets really close. The almost just take it a little bit too far because they don't have that strong. Containment vessel the flavors almost too powerful of like jelly strawberry. Whereas Brown sugar cinnamon is kind of like the opposite. It's it's got that flavor. But it's only just like right at the back of your throat, and you really can't pin it down. So I think the flavors are there. Just sort of the the depth perception may be off. In the back of the box, man. What a hoot I do. I do right marketing copy for a living. But I like to really analyze the back of these and some of the phrases on the back of this box are just a lot to handle let me give you one or two. There's fact sprinkles make everything more fun is that a fact is that a fact visit make taxes more fun. It's it's not even canonical, correct? Because pro sugar cinnamon pop tarts don't have sprinkles in reality, really. But the cereal pieces do. I don't know. Let me just give you one more to close this out his journey to the center of the crunch. And there's a comma there that wasn't that wasn't my dramatic pause. Wow. Filling. It's like it's like opening your Christmas gift, and you get all the wrapping paper off, and you go. Wow. A present..
